  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.

  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971 and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on October 22, 2021.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.

  65. 2020 Thursday A: Following a viral video showing Chi-Com sailors aboard their ‘fishing boats’ throwing the body of a dead Indonesian fisherman overboard, the government of Indonesia summons the Chi-Com ambassador to an immediate meeting to discuss the outrageous mistreatment of its citizens serving aboard the Chi-Com ‘fishing fleets’ (which in reality are actually intelligence-gathering operations with foreign fishing crews aboard them to do the ‘fishing’ because fishing is beneath modern-day Chi-Com citizens).   Elsewhere, law enforcement in Brunswick, Georgia, scoops up father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael and charges the two scumbags for chasing down black jogger Ahmaud Arbery on tape beating and then murdering him.  They claimed he was breaking into houses in their area and that they were forced to take matters into their own hands.  These guys are going to fry.

Currently, Joe is shy 183,514 deaths.      
  68. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,756,393 confirmed cases, 62,220 confirmed deaths, and 2,001,539 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,262,598 confirmed cases, 35,644 confirmed deaths, and 1,836,489 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,036 confirmed cases, 486 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 414,899 confirmed cases, 5,620 confirmed deaths, and 202,488 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Puerto Rico, a place  the Democrats want to make our first welfare state: they have 253,302 confirmed cases, 2,355 confirmed deaths, and 112,074 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  69. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,858 confirmed cases, 6,375 confirmed deaths, and 831,432 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Oman, a relatively peaceful Arab country: 199,344 cases of the virus, 2,083 confirmed deaths and 181,696 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  70. 2021 Friday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,777.76, UP 229.23 points (+0.66%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,752.24, UP 119.39 points (+0.88%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,232.60, UP 30.98 points (+0.74%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,832.00 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $27.57 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.60 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.75 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,926.51 per troy oz, -20.16 (-0.68%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.90.     In Pound Sterling, one greenback equals 0.72 and in Qatari Rial, a buck equals 3.68 and in Romanian Leu, one dollar equals 4.05 of theirs.[xv]     Elsewhere, in a MASSIVE blow to the Joe Biden regime, the economy added ONLY 266,000 jobs last month while Democrats were deliriously predicting 1,000,000 jobs or more.  Add to that unemployment going from 6.0-percent to 6.1-percent and it would appear that the BOGUS Biden regime ‘infrastructure bill’ is going to face stiffer opposition than expected.[xvi]
  71. 2021 Friday 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 $4.086 per gallon, $2.882 in Florida, $3.820 in Hawaii, and $3.509 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Ohio: $2.824.  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- Qatar: $1.923 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,260,030,025,130 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  72. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– After much public outcry, San Diego County, California (nod to Chef Pedro) is canceling a plan on establishing a large tent city in which to house massive numbers of illegal aliens.   (Note- it’s time to rekindle Operation Wetback, an operation that began in June 1954 to deport Mexican illegals back to their country en masse, load these people onto box cars, airliners, buses, even freighters, and sending them BACK to whence the f**k they came.  Now).   Next, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that ‘permanent status is possible for the reunited families of illegal aliens the evil Trump regime separated.  Oh, goodie.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘amnesty and reparations will increase the numbers of illegals seeking to flood our country.’  Amen.
  73. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The U.S. Military is open to training troops from other countries (i.e., mercenaries) to assume our places in Afghanistan once we pull out of that horrible country.  Why can’t we just leave?  Although, here is something we have suggested over the years: WHY not create a U.S. Foreign Legion like the French have theirs?  All the military-aged illegal alien males we can train and send oversea to fight all the wars the Military-Industrial-Political Complex wants to fight.  IF the illegals survive 25 years in the ranks, they can become citizens but not their families, friends, neighbors, or anyone else.[xx]  In other news, Chi-Com hegemony in Africa may soon give them a naval base on the Atlantic.  Wow.  Not good.   Add to that a new report that says the Chi-Coms account for 27-percent of ALL greenhouse gases emitted on the planet.
  74. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Emma Green, an Atlantic writer, says that ‘progressives are clinging to COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns despite what the science says’ (and we always thought progressives ‘listened to science, right?) because it empowers them.  It is amazing to think how many liberal Democrats (and occasional RINO) love the power they have deciding who gets to live their lives and who doesn’t.  They are all fascists at heart.[xxi]
  75. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, is urging the Lone Star State to pass an election integrity law.  In fact, hours after debating, the Texas House of Representatives is advancing a voter integrity bill.  Next the Honest Elections Project says 77-percent of Americans- including 73-percent of black Americans- want voter ID.  So, give it to us and NOT this H.R. 1 and S.R. 1 bulls**t.   In other election news, Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrats WON’T hand over the routers used in the 2020 Elections to the state Senate investigation into election integrity.  What is up with that?   (Note- the Arizona Senate reassured the feds that election audit security is extremely high so DON’T worry).
  76. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden Regime News I–  Biden regime hacks didn’t truly celebrate the National Day of Prayer but when bumbling old Joe Biden made a remark or two, the so-called ‘devout Catholic’ could not mention the name of God.  WTF?  In other Biden regime news, Republican senators OPPOSE a Biden regime plan with which to grant amnesty to American scientific researchers who didn’t disclose they were in bed with the Chi-Coms or other adversarial nations.  No, these scumbags should be doing time in federal prisons.   Meanwhile, we learn today that the NEXT White House Press Secretary could be a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.  Whoa.  So much for picking people based on qualifications, not what’s between their legs or the sort of sex they like.  Our money’s on a tranny.[xxii]  Finally, a Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative Poll says that ‘Florida has not warmed up to “Pro-China Joe” Biden as much as Democrats were hoping.  We doubt that state ever will.
  77. 2021 Friday K: Political News I–  Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘the votes are there to strip Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, of her leadership position.  Boot her ass out NOW.  If she becomes a Democrat, big flipping deal.  Next, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, is signing a bill that will prohibit ALL efforts at defunding the police within their state.  Speaking of the Peach State, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms- once a rising star in the Democratic Party- announced that she won’t be running for a second term…that star has imploded and now is a black hole…[xxiii]
  78. 2021 Friday L: Miscellaneous News I– The U.S. Army is going to allow female personnel to wear ponytails in all uniforms.  Wow.  Big news. Next, the feds have indicted convicted Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and his three fellow officers who have not yet even gone on trial on civil rights charges.  Wow.  So much for double jeopardy, folks.  How many bites of the apple do the feds plan to take?  Moving on, California reports its first ever population decline as people are fleeing the state like it’s a hooker with facial herpes.   Finally, it now appears that President Donald J. Trump has an iron-fisted grip on the Republican Party.  Good.  IT is his and the America First Crowd’s Party.  Period.  
  79. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the numbers for the Mega-Millions Draw #1657 with a $370 million jackpot on the line: 05, 10. 19, 21, 50, and Mega 10.  Out of 151,903 winning tickets, the highest winners were SIX people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,090 apiece.
  80. 2022 Saturday: Stick around and discover the truth along with us…you know it’s going to be good…until BIG BROTHER shuts us down for good…

[i] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[vii] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

[viii] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xxi] Personally- and this is me, Chef Murph talking- if I owned the French Laundry and that little closet queen Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom had come to my restaurant to dine, after what he’s done to the hospitality and foodservice industries in the Golden State, we might have had a slip up in the mushrooms we served him and his party.  Oops, like fucking up the blowfish at the sashimi bar…

[xxii] Speaking of trannys, a Swedish hospital system is prohibiting hormone blockers for children under age 18.  Good.  About time someone began doing this.

[xxiii] Speaking astronomically of course so don’t even go there…

  57. 2004 Friday: Crazed Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr declares he will employ suicide bombers against U.S. troops should they make a move on his militias in the city of Najaf.  American and Coalition invaders are overrunning parts of the country in their quest for ‘weapons of mass destruction’ and then stamping out jihadis that the Shiites are preparing to begin lashing back at the so-called “Crusaders.”
  58. 2005 Saturday: At a checkpoint between Israel and the Gaza Strip, Israeli Defense Forces capture a 17-year-old Palestinian boy trying to smuggle four pipe bombs into Israel.

  61. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  62. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  63. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  64. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.
  65. 2012 Monday: The trial of former senator and vice-presidential candidate John Edwards for misuse of campaign funds gets underway in North Carolina.  Elsewhere, famed bassist Chris Ethridge who played with the Flying Burrito Brothers[xi] (1968-69 / 1974-76 / 1990-93)—among other bands—lost his battle with pancreatic carcinoma on this date.  He died in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi, at the age of 65.  Next, the Iranians are angry because a malware attack has hammered the National Iranian Oil Company.  Sucks to be you.  Finally, the White House is launching an investigation into its advance staff in the wake of the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
  66. 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
  67. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  68. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  69. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, which would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  70. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University, and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  71. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  72. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease, but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  73. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland. 
  74. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 144,804,485 confirmed cases, +799,197, 3,073,868  confirmed deaths, +11,781, and 83,220,681 confirmed recoveries, +650,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,717,457 confirmed cases, UP 48,336 from yesterday’s reporting, 584,839 confirmed deaths, UP 10,421, (figures include today’s and yesterday’s)[xii] and 119,056,391 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiii] 
  75. 2021 Friday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 260,967 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  76. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,727,713 confirmed cases, 61,261 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,196,502 confirmed cases, 34,759 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,977 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Idaho, one of the few sane places left in the country: they have 186,081 confirmed cases, 2,029 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]   
  77. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,892 confirmed cases, 6,346 confirmed deaths, and 829,424 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian nations on the globe: 247,989 cases of the virus, 3,496 confirmed deaths and 185,107 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    
  78. 2021 Friday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,043.49, UP 227.59 points (+0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,016.81, UP 198.40 points (+1.44%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,180.17, UP 45.19 points (+1.09%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.04 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,776.70 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.05 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,232.00 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.08%).[xvi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,855.15 per troy oz, +18.52 (+0.65%).[xvii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xviii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 107.91 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71.[xix]  
  79. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.981 per gallon, $2.802 in Florida, $3.760 in Hawaii, and $3.401 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $2.822.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,205,305,997,186 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  80. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.   Elsewhere, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, said that the illegal alien brats are in OBAMA-BIDEN CAGES and NOT Trump cages.  
  81. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden News I– Drooling Joe Biden found himself for being mocked as at his recent ‘climate summit’ with world leaders via ZOOM, he was the ONLY leader wearing a mask.  Ye gods, Joe, what the hell is wrong with you?  Dimwit.   Anyhow, when Joe concluded his summit, he said with gasping vigor, “We’re gonna do this.”  Big flipping deal, Joe.  Do it to yourself, NOT to us.  Next, totally whacked White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki crowed that ‘Joe Biden will be the first president to create 1,000,000 jobs in his first 100 days.’  Oh, please, stop it, we are laughing as hard as we can already.  Enough, dimwit!  Moving on, Joe Biden told Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he is going to call ‘the Armenian massacre a GENOCIDE.’  As it was, the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE the Ottoman Turks carried out against the Christian Armenian minority in their country during World War I.  (Note- it would appear that via this action, Joe is pushing yet another dictatorial nation into the Chi-Com-Russian-Iranian-North Korean-Cuban-Venezuelan camp for good.  Good going there, Joe).
  82. 2021 Friday H: Energy News / Infrastructure News– Much to the horror of liberals, 73-percent of Americans recently polled believe that fossil fuels and natural gas will be with us for decades to come.  Yes, people are interested in renewable energy but until it becomes cost effective and dependable, no one wants this crap.[xxii]  Meanwhile, a new report says that a new proposed gasoline tax is meeting with resistance on BOTH sides of the political aisle.   After the GOP put forth a sensible and less costly infrastructure bill and the left slapped it down, Senator Johnson said it’s all ‘partisanship and not concern for the American people.’  Speaking of infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., says that ‘Joe Biden should concentrate on CONVENTIONAL infrastructure’ and not this WOKE bulls**t.
  83. 2021 Friday I: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– Early today, Democrats began suing the state of Arizona for permitting the election integrity audit to begin and continue.  Later in the day, a judge called a temporary halt to the procedures for some inexplicable reason, but then permitted it to proceed late in the day.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that his team is advancing election integrity efforts across the country.  Elsewhere, New Hampshire passed SB 43 with which to carry out a forensic audit of the voting machines.  Citing the Windham Incident, in this one location, 1,143 ballots for Republicans were magically flipped over to Democrats.  These investigations are necessary.    
  84. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, RINO, is slamming the inclusion of Iran- perhaps one of the greatest persecutors of women and girls- onto the U.N. Status of Women Commission.  What a load of feculent crap to put a scumbag nation such as Iran on a global body such as the one mentioned above.   Meanwhile, following Tony Perkins- of Family Research Council fame- calling for a boycott on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chi-Coms now are trying to cancel him.  Permanently.    Elsewhere, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny is going to end his hunger strike.  Finally, Japan is declaring a state of emergency around Tokyo and three other areas due to surging numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  85. 2021 Friday K: Mass Shooting News / Law Enforcement News–  We learned that late last night in San  Diego, California, a mass shooting left one person dead and at least four injured.  We learned today that NBC once again rejiggered audio from the recent police shooting of Ma’ Khia Bryant who was in the act of stabbing another girl with an eight-inch blade.  As they did with George Zimmerman’s 911 call regarding Trayvon Martin, they edited and fabricated the police call so as to suit their narrative.  Folks, these lying scumbag networks should be fined and/or stripped of their broadcast licenses.   Meanwhile, Nicolas Cruz, the POS who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida back on February 14, 2018, in what we have dubbed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018- could go on trial for his life as early as this September.  (Note- we thought he had already copped to a deal).   Elsewhere, an alternate juror in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin says ‘yes, indeed, the mob intimidate us into finding the way we did.’  This verdict is going to get tossed.  Count on it.
  86. 2021 Friday L: Social Media And Stupid People News– After that big POS Los Angeles Lakers dimwit LeBron “Fecal Matter” James put up his most recent tweet about the cop who shot violent teen Ma’ Kia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, a few days ago, President Donald J. Trump says the turd should ‘focus on his NBA career rather than presiding over the destruction of the National Basketball League.’  LeBron James clearly learned nothing in school and worse, he is down on his knees in front of Xi Jinping doing the nasty for him every day.  C***sucker.  Speaking of LeBron and social media, millions are asking WHY Twitter banned President Donald J. Trump for ‘inciting violence’ while all the while permitting King James to make threats of his own via the platform?  Why?
  87. 2021 Friday M: COVID-19 News / Updates– Today, 33 colleges said that in order to return to classes in the next semester, ALL students will have to show proof they have been vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – with the help of Border Guru Stephen Miller- is suing the Biden administration over its hypocrisy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of illegals without testing them for the ‘VID while demanding states continue the bogus lockdowns the federal government imposes on them (if it can get away with doing it).  Moving on, the U.S. will now permit the use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations to proceed.  However, this comes on the heels of the CDC investigation yet another woman’s death- someone in her fifties- following vaccination for the Chi-Vi.
  88. 2021 Friday N: U.S. Government News– Ahead of their planned pull out, U.S. military is packing up its military hardware in Afghanistan while leaving non-military supplies such as office equipment and appliances behind for the Taliban to put to effective use.   In other truly embarrassing news, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, a true milquetoast if one ever existed, is going to permit U.S. diplomatic missions abroad to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag at the same level with the U.S. flag around the world.  Gee whiz, paint another target on our backs, will you?  Meanwhile, the Biden White House is nominating a ‘conservationist’- Tracy Stone-Manning- to lead the Public Lands Bureau.  Another left-wing loser to be sure.  Finally, SpaceX Dragon capsule blasted off today carrying FOUR American astronauts to the International Space Station.
  89. 2021 Friday O: January 06, 2021, Storming The Capitol / Capitol Hill Riots / False Flag Operations News– It appears that Capitol Hill law enforcement has grown fatigued by lying Democrats’ narratives on what happened on that fateful day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrated the ranks of Trump supporters and then set in motion the largest FALSE FLAG operation seen in the history of our country.  They are pushing back on recent claims by unnamed Democrats that they showed ‘bias towards the Trump supporters.’  They say they did not.   Elsewhere, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is demanding a FULL ACCOUNTING of the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick, someone whom we just learned died from natural causes and did not- we repeat, did NOT- have his head bashed in with a fire extinguisher as liberal fake news media and Democrat politicians have long claimed.   Tell us the truth.
  90. 2021 Friday P: State News–  Florida’s Supreme Court stopped a bid with which to legalize marijuana in the Sunshine State.  Good.  We have enough stupid people already.   Elsewhere, in California, Caitlyn Jenner makes it official- she is running for the governor’s job in the recall of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and some like that overweight, wig-wearing Joy Behar on “The View” are upset.  She was so upset, she kept using the wrong pronouns when speaking of Ms. Jenner which in the liberal WOKE world is a major faux pas.  Yet, liberals routinely get away with NOT doing as they say everyone else should be doing.  What a farce.  Next, in New York City late last night/early this morning, did their best to deface a monument in Central Park, one built to commemorate the loss of 260 U.S. Navy sailors who were killed when the battleship USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, Cuba, on February 15, 1898, the main event that propelled the U.S. into war with Spain.  Police arrested some of the rioters, but we are sure they left the slammer within hours of their arrest.
  91. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new study on elected officials who are the child of elected officials says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, vote to the LEFT of their parents when they were in office.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, said he ‘endorses Senators Murkowski and her RINO buddy, Susan Collins, of Maine.   Next, survivors of the Steve Scalise shooting criticize yesterday’s findings by the FBI that James Hodgkinson who shot up the Republican team preparing for the annual House baseball game back on June 14, 2017, did so because he wanted to die by suicide by cop.  This was the FBI finding we received yesterday and all we can say is that FBI Director Christopher Wray is full of fecal matter.
  92. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that New York state’s planned payments of $15,000 or more to illegal aliens is ‘unacceptable.’  It’s unacceptable when Americans need help, require salvation from all the Chi-Com Virus lockdowns and restrictions, and liberal left-wing government would rather care for INVADERS than for its own people.   Next, Kimberly Guilfoyle endorses former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens in his U.S. Senate bid.   Moving on, Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, vetoed a bill limiting gun restrictions.  He vetoed a bill that LIMITS restrictions on guns in the Natural State, for Christ’s Sake.   The man has demonstrated he is little more than a RINO.
  93. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Apparently, the President Trump 2020 Campaign left an unpaid view in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a $211,000 bill, one they are sending to collections.  Sounds like bull crap but then- we know how it is.  Speaking of President Trump, he may be leaving Florida to spend the summer at his New Jersey golf club.   Speaking of Florida, the okays a bill banning abortions based on disability.  Meanwhile, we learn that the United States Postal Service- the USPS, for Christ’s Holy Sake!- is now doing dirty work for the Biden regime by spying on conservative Americans.  Man, they must have amassed a humongous dossier on the AICPENDBLOG.COM by now.  What the hell is the postal service doing behaving like the Gestapo?  Has Stamps.com hurt them this much that they must take on jobs that have NOTHING to do with their daytime jobs?
  94. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News I– After a violent summer last year in \Minneapolis, Minnesota, BLACK-OWNED businesses in the city say the ‘city has abandoned them.’  These poor people watched Black Lives Matter and Antifa and all the hateful white punks (especially the banshees) screaming and rioting, looting, robbing, raping, and burning, and the damned Twin Cities need to do something to get them back on their feet!  What the hell does it take?  Where the hell is Patrice Cullors and all her millions of dollars?  Where is Joe Biden?  HELP these people.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post was slammed earlier today for their disgraceful ‘fact-checking’ on Senator Tim Scott’s ‘from the cotton fields to Congress’ statement awhile back.  Leftists are scumbags, what more can one say?  In other whack-job news, Climate Czar John F. Kerry says that the administration is exploring a BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX that will slap additional taxes, i.e., tariffs, on nations with weaker climate policies.  Folks, it’s time to make up NICE with Russia or China and seek asylum.  These people are cray-cray.
  95. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1653: 04, 28, 29,30, 60, and Mega 25.  Stay tuned for news on the winners… Out of 111,596 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $14,862 apiece.

  97. 2022 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,023 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.

  70. 2012 Sunday: The U.S. military is faced with having to monitor its servicemen-and-women in Afghanistan after reports of opiate and other drug usage, as well as distribution, begin to arise.  Of course, this smacks of the Vietnam War Era when numerous service personnel were hooked on opiates or involved in their trafficking.   Meanwhile, naval forces from both Russia and the People’s Republic of China participate in joint exercises in the Yellow Sea.

  86. 2021 Thursday G: Earth Day Climate Communism News– Conservative commentators with the balls to call out Joe Biden point out that his so-called ‘climate summit’ is little more than a gift to the Chi-Coms who will agree to anything and then forge ahead with their plans.  Who can blame them?  Since it’s ‘Earth Day,’ Joe Biden rolls out sweeping new climate goals that are little more than open doorways for communism to consume both the country and the world.  Thanks, Joe.   Speaking of our drooling commander-in-chief, Climate Change protesters pushed pink wheelbarrows full of steer manure through the streets of Washington, D.C. and dumped them out in front of the White House.  They claim Old Joe is full of s**t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, it’s another Earth Day so it’s another opportunity for angry teenager Greta Thunberg to lambaste the world’s politicians once again.  Young lady, why don’t you row your boat to Beijing and tell comrade Xi Jinping how HE is responsible for f**king up the world?  You might find yourself vacationing in Xinjiang Province.

VA, says he ‘won’t budge on the Senate filibuster.’  Next, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is going to visit Iowa on June 29, 2021, to help fellow GOP politicians in election bids.  Some believe this is testing the waters for a run in 2024, something with which, we don’t concur.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill that would make Washington, D.C., a state, something the U.S. Constitution expressly forbids.  It moves onto the U.S. Senate.
  89. 2021 Thursday J: Crime And Punishment News– Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a pair of bills into law today that protect motorists from ‘protesters.’  Not long after he did that, there was an INSURRECTION in the State House in which, a bunch of BLM supporters stormed the building and had to be tossed out on their butts by security.  Excellent.   Next, the POS Islamist from Syria[xviii], let in on the refugee program under President Barack Hussein Obama who shot up the King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, is being charged with having a high-capacity magazine.  Say it ain’t so!  Next, Columbus, Ohio, following the death of a 16-year-old Ma’ Khia Bryant was shot dead by a police officer yesterday as she was in the act of stabbing another young girl, protests and riots are occurring in the city, especially after troglodyte LeBron “Fecal Matter” James poured gasoline all over the fire yesterday with a threatening tweet against the officer involved in the action.  Look, when you are threatening someone with an 8-eight-inch blade and you are overheard saying, “I’M GOING TO STAB THE F**K OUT OF YOU, BITCH,” was the officer supposed to stand aside and watch the deed done?  Enough with this bulls**t.  Moving on, Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel program that SEXUAL ASSAULTS in New York City this past couple of months are UP by…get this…322-percent.  Gee whiz.  WTF is Mayor Bill “The Blank” Di Blasio doing to halt this horrendous sexual crime wave?  Nothing.  Finally, the POS Bangladeshi that tried to carry out a suicide bombing in the Times Square subway station received a life term in federal prison today.   
  90. 2021 Thursday K: Supreme Court News– On a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects limits imposed on life sentences for juveniles.  This led to Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor slamming her fellow justices- but Brett Kavanaugh in particular- noting that the newer justices are willing to overturn precedent extremely easy.   Speaking of liberals, Democrats are demanding (don’t they always) that Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from a donor privacy case.  C’mon, Dems NEVER recuse themselves from anything.   Speaking of the nation’s high court, GOP senators are speaking out against the Democratic Party’s twisted scheme of packing the court.[xix]
  91. 2021 Thursday L: Miscellaneous News– The Department of Homeland Security reveals yet another cybersecurity hack into U.S. systems, blaming the Russkies when everyone knows it’s the Chi-Coms doing the evil deeds.  Next, the U.S. Senate passes a bill making it a crime to practice Asian Hate.  Folks, the Dems must tell the BLACK DEMOCRATS to stop attacking the ASIAN DEMOCRATS.  Everyone knows what has been going on, black Americans assaulting Asian Americans and for what?  Did the Dems mobilize their shock troops to commit these heinous acts?  We think so.  Next, former aide to former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, Bridget Kelly, says the ‘big oaf is unfit to ever become president.’  He engineered ‘Bridgegate,’ and Ms. Kelly underwent two criminal trials, was facing prison until the Supreme Court tossed this bogus case.   Elsewhere, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, is scheduled to give the rebuttal to Joe Biden’s upcoming ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress. 
  92. 2021 Thursday M: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Late last night, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you know of whom we speak) carried out a suicide car-bombing outside a luxury hotel in Quetta, Pakistan.  The resulting explosion killed four and wounded at least 11.  Supposedly, the Chi-Com ambassador was on site, so no one knows for sure whether he was the target, or it was just another day at the office for the jihadists.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is putting forth a bill designed to crack down on People’s Republic of China infiltrating our institutions of higher learning.  Good.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, slams the enfeebled Joe Biden over his crackpot plans for rejoining with the Iranians in the deeply flawed JCPOA.   Moving on, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggests the U.S. could give eventual U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens willing to plant trees.  How about they plant them in YOUR country?).
  93. 2021 Thursday N: Foreign News / Overseas News II– A new report suggests that the Russians are suspected of launching directed energy attacks on U.S. military personnel.  Okay, uh, when claims of Vladimir Putin placing bounties atop the heads of U.S. soldiers led to demands that President Donald J. Trump go to war with the Russkies, how come the very same voices aren’t demanding that Joe Biden go to war?  Speaking of the Russians, it appears they have blinked and have pulled their forces back from the eastern border of Ukraine.  Wow.  Joe scared them.  In other ‘foreign news,’ a team of scientists are urging Congress to release more information on UFOs after one incident comes to light in which, a UFO going along at 120 miles per hour over Puerto Rico suddenly splits in two and heads off in different directions.  Folks, we have a problem on this planet.  What are we going to do about it?  (Note- this incident occurred back in 2013 so why are we just hearing about it now?)  Finally, at the upcoming meeting of House Republicans, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that President Donald J. Trump WON’T be addressing the group.

  99. 2022 Friday 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, $4.110 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.685 in Washington state.[xxvii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Maryland- $4.047.  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 24th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Russia: $2.421 per U.S. Gallon.[xxviii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,402,029,192,644 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxix]  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 ALL OTHERS.  These nations holds $215,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  100. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Moscow now says that they are going to conquer all of eastern Ukraine as well as southern Ukraine so they can then focus on intimidating Moldova into submission.   Meanwhile, a new report informs the world that Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites fought off a Russian jamming attack over Ukraine the other day.   Satellite images are showing mass graves surrounding Mariupol in eastern Ukraine holding as many as 9,000 or more corpses.  Whether they are Ukrainian civilians or slain Russians is unclear; however, the defenders within the city continue to put up a defense which is driving the Russians and their mercenaries insane.
  101. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The families of the lost sailors who went down with the Moskva when it was sunk by Ukrainian forces last week are demanding answers from Vladimir Putin and his military regime.  They want to know WHY their sons and daughters went down with the ship in an unnecessary war.   Things are growing much more tense in Russia as the FSB is scooping up critics of the Russo-Ukrainian War such as opposition activist, Vladimir Kara-Murza Jr.  A criminal case has been opened against him and he could soon be staying with Alexei Navalny in the Siberian slammer.   Speculation abounds about Russian President Vladimir Putin as a recent series of photos shows him speaking with his defense minister. His right foot is tapping feverishly, he grips the table with one hand, his face, hands, and neck are bloated, and he looks worse than Adolf Hitler did in 1945.  Regarding Hitler, his personal doctor, Dr. Theodor Morell was injecting the Fuhrer with 75 different drugs per day including methamphetamine so what is Putin’s excuse?  The Joe Biden ‘disease,’ i.e., advance senility?
  102. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 385 days and it’s been 299 days since she arrived on scene to do her job.  What a tragedy.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is $713,581,700.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the two took their oaths to defend the Constitution of the United States and the American people is $42,459,387,443.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since the year began is a shocking 1,139,758.  Next, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is a shockingly low 46,571,415.  We suspect the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is a travesty no sane country can withstand. Next, a Texas National Guard member was swept away attempting to rescue struggling illegals drowning in the Rio Grande River.  The search continues for the unfortunate guardsman.  (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 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Bowing to pressure, Pope Francis calls off a meeting he had scheduled with a Russian patriarch due to the Russian being an ardent supporter of President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, another Russian, Olympic swimmer Evgeny Rylov has been given a nine-month suspension in international swimming events because the POS attended a pro-Vladimir Putin rally.  Next, Austria turns off the Russian oil spigot.  Meanwhile, the European Union is begging its citizens to voluntarily reduce energy usage so as to slash the dependence on Russian oil.
  104. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News II– British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is no slacker, and he says that ‘next week, the Brits will be reopening their embassy in Kyiv.’  Wow.  Where the hell is Joe Biden?  (Note- Joe is worried more about trannys and their rights than he is in promoting and defending the United States).   Elsewhere, after back-to-attack attacks on U.S. troops, diplomats from Iraq and Iran to meet. However, President Volodymyr Zelensky says the ‘U.S. most definitely will be reopening their embassy very soon.’  Next, after the Ukrainian postal service debuts a new anti-Russian postage stamp online, a cyberattack shuts them down.

  110. 2022 Friday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Gallup poll says that Joe Biden’s popularity rating is the second lowest in presidential history.  While we suggest that Barack Hussein Obama’s was worst, we know that President Richard M. Nixon rates the lowest.  In other devastating news to the so-called ‘Catholic president,’ Catholic League President William Anthony Donahue is slamming President Biden over his embrace of ‘transgender mania.’  Yikes, Joe.  How much worse can it get for you?
  111. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– Despite a growing rebellion among Democrats and red state governors going for broke to end the border invasion, the Biden regime says that it’s still going to end Title 42 on May 23, 2022,  whether they like it or they don’t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, struggling Joe Biden arrived on the West Coast today to do some fundraising and not to discuss defending our borders.  In Portland, Oregon, Joe Biden gave a rambling, stumbling speech to a tiny crowd and in his remarks, said that ‘Americans should stop feeling sorry for themselves’ regarding inflation and unaffordable prices.  Then in Seattle, he talked about climate change before ambling off into the hands of his handlers.  Where was the Easter bunny?  To cap things off, Joe grasped the lectern, leaned forward to the almost nonexistent crowd, begin whispering, then mumbling, and finally stuttering and stammering about how the GOP has become the MAGA party.  (Note- look for Joe to outlaw the Republican Party ahead of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections).
  112. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– In Washington, D.C., today, another busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in the nation’s capital.  Dump ‘em on the White House lawn.  They should not need ID there anymore than they need ID along the U.S.-Mexico border.   Next, after the BIG SCARE at the U.S. Capitol yesterday, the FAA says it failed to inform the Capitol Hill Police Department of the parachute jump into Washington Nationals Stadium.  As you recall, a parachutist caused mass panic at the Capitol.  Was it the return of the INSURRECTIONISTS?  Oh, God, say it ain’t so.
  113. 2022 Friday S: Political News I– Democrats do what Democrats do best: use the system to topple their foes.  Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, appeared in administrative court in Atlanta, Georgia, today where her Democrat opponents are trying to remove her from the primary ballot because (1) they hate her and (2) they know they can’t beat her.  He enemies are attempting to tie her to the false flag operation authorized by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Charged with no crime, the Dems still seek to remove her from the ballot.  Her attorney informed the hearing that all she did was to exercise her First Amendment rights.  The congresswoman says that all she was doing was asking people to come and to attend a peaceful march.
  114. 2022 Friday T: Political News II– Randi Weingarten- well-known socialist head of the American Federation of Teachers says that ‘parental rights laws in education are the way in which wars are started.’  Wow.  We suspect Ms. Weingarten may be going the way of Jimmy Hoffa soon.  Know when you’ve reached the apex of your career and then bow out gracefully; otherwise, you could end up in a landfill in the Garden State.
  115. 2022 Friday U: Political News III– In dire news for U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd district, Rep. “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney released audio from around January 06, 2022, in which, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ prompted Leader McCarthy to say that he was going to suggest to President Donald J. Trump that ‘IF impeached again, he should resign.’  This first came up yesterday and Rep. McCarthy denied ever saying it; however, today, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ Cheney got even with the California congressman by releasing the audio damning him as the anti-Trump RINO POS that he is.  Republicans in the Golden State’s 23rd district tell us they will be voting for Republican Jay Obernolte in June’s primary.  Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax that ‘McCarthy will probably have to go,’ that ‘Trump will most likely push him out,’ and that the ‘only way McCarthy could survive is that he looks better in comparison than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, RINO-KY.[xxx]
  116. 2022 Friday V: Political News IV– Former President Barack Hussein Obama once again has to add his two bits to the conversation.  He says that Meta-Facebook and Twitter are private companies and don’t have to practice freedom of speech.  Wow.  Next, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, shedding tears while speaking about the trauma she claims to have suffered on January 06, 2021- remember, she was in another building several blocks away from the Capitol- says, ‘this is no joke- they’re coming back.’  Well, this time we hope the ‘insurrectionists find YOU.’ Moving on, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st district, says that Twitter ‘must release data on Hunter Biden’s activities and his laptop.’
  117. 2022 Friday W: Political News V– Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st district, says, ‘it’s not right for the Dems trying to force fellow GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, off the primary ballot.  In other news, former ambassador to Germany and to the United Nations Ric Grenell says that ‘the Dems, Joe Biden, and ‘Merkelism’ in Germany’ set the war in Ukraine in motion.
  118. 2022 Friday X: Political News VI– Greg Kelly on Newsmax played an audio clip of former Governor John Kasich, RINO-OH, and former ‘2016 presidential primary candidate’ said on his radio show, Kasich and Klepper, that following losing the nomination to businessman Donald J. Trump, he broke down and started blubbering like the crybaby he is.
  119. 2022 Friday Y: Lawsuit and Legal News– The punk who started an altercation with heavyweight boxing champion “Iron Mike” Tyson on an airliner the other day has lawyered up while “Iron Mike’s” legal representatives say the putz was bothering him throughout the flight and then finally threw a water bottle at the famous fighter.  This led Mr. Tyson to turn around and punch the dimwit into early senility.  It’s a cut-and-dry case for Mr. Tyson.  Lock the punk up for instigating a fight he was never going to win.   Meanwhile, Tennessee has passed a new law that will force drunk drivers- guilty of killing a parent while driving while intoxicated- to pay support to the kids of the parents they kill.  This is absolutely amazing.  Good for you!
  120. 2022 Friday Z: Big Tech News– Netflix, reeling from a precipitous drop in stock value through the loss of hundreds of thousands of subscribers said today they will curtail spending in an effort to woo young people back to their crumbling site.  We suspect they will go the way of the ‘video store,’ relegated to the dustbin of history.  Meanwhile, Florida passed the law stripping Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges which led to a precipitous fall in their stock prices.  All Disney has to do is to just shut the hell up.  Be neutral and tell your employees to be neutral, too, while on the job.  Outside of work, if you want to prance around in pink tutus defending ‘transgender rights,’ go for it but stop with supporting the indoctrination of kids ages kindergarten to Third Grade.  Enough is flipping enough, already.  Now, your employer owes billions of dollars in taxes which means some of you are going to get the ax.
  121. 2022 Friday AA: Big Tech News II– New data shows that BIG TECH censored stories critical of Joe Biden 600-plus times over a two-year-cycle.  Why would anyone be surprised?  We know they did everything imaginable to cover up the truth of Hunter Biden’s laptop story which would have swayed the election for sure.  (We still believe that President Donald J. Trump won the 2020 Presidential Election by amazing numbers).
  122. 2022 Friday BB: New York State News– Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner resigned today following video of the arrest of an eight-year-old shoplifter.  Passersby attempted to interfere with the police officers and once again the media is in a stage of outrage screaming and yelling racism.  If a family member would discipline the brat at home, he would not be out shoplifting but no, they permit the kid to run amok and then when he’s caught, the media and their left-wing allies turn it into yet another reason for social unrest across the nation.  Put the kid in with the Cho-Mos.  He won’t shoplift again.
  123. 2022 Friday CC: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1757 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line: 07, 28, 29, 58, 59, and Mega 10.  Out of 51,626 winning tickets, the highest winners were 27 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $513 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next archival release Rick Danko’s record company put out is “Live at the Iron Hose, Northampton 1995 with Blondie Chapin and Ed Kaercher.”  This album came out on June 07, 2011, as have his other releases but unlike his ‘solo’ efforts, he has the phenomenal Blondie Chapin (guitars/vocals of Beach Boys fame among others) and Ed Kaercher (guitars, vocals) with which to give it a more electrified sound.  There are 20 tunes, many of which have been culled from the Band’s catalog and which are a joy to hear.  Sadly, they should have been able to have slipped in “Sail On Sailor,” one of the all-time great 1970s Beach Boys albums performed by Blondie Chapin.  We hope you will seek this one out as Danko- troubled star that he was- could deliver the musical goods with the emotional voice denoting fragility, yet strength at the same time.  Great music on a great album by one of the all-time greats- check it out now.  Enjoy.

111. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2022

28. 1954 Wednesday: The People’s Army is launching an all-out assault on the Foreign Legion held strongpoint of Huguette 1. The communists have labored to dig approach trenches right up to the wire as well as to pull in heavy weapons for close range support. According to some Legion survivors, the last that was seen of their comrades was that they were fighting back-to-back atop the command bunker, throwing back one human wave assault after another of howling communists until finally, everything fell into silence. Still, the fighting at Dien Bien Phu will continue.

  59. 2014 Monday:  The New York Knicks fire Coach Mike Woodson after a season in which the Knicks began as champions and ended with elimination.  Elsewhere Russian separatists n the eastern Ukraine claim that two of their number have been pulled from a river, covered in stab wounds.  This is a horrendous outrage and of course the Russians are angry.  Like the Nazis in 1939 prior to the invasion of Poland also needed a pretext for invasion and so they engineered one.  Vladimir Putin is a good student.  (Note- the Russians probably killed a couple of Chechens).
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, a true jihadist if one ever existed, receives a 20-year stint in an Egyptian hoosegow for hundreds of protesters he had killed when he was the nation’s president.   Elsewhere, following the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is going to launch a federal investigation into the incident.

  66. 2020 Tuesday A: COVID-19 Evening Update– As of tonight, the world claims 2,563,384 confirmed cases of China’s lab-engineered virus, the Kung Flu.  The world stats show there are 177,415 confirmed deaths what with 681,477 confirmed recoveries.  IN the United States, there are 824,698 confirmed cases what with 45,297 confirmed deaths, and 75,050 confirmed recoveries.  As for the world’s ‘friends,’ the communist Chinese, they still claim 88,423 confirmed cases what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  As we say, “Communists always lie and so the Chinese continue doing so.”  Soon, they will be paying the price as almost every nation encircling the globe is suffering from this unnecessary disaster.

  73. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ongoing Border Catastrophe– Things are going to hell along the southern border that Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, is calling up the National Guard and deploying them to his state’s border with Mexico.  In fact, Senators Mark Kelly, D-AZ, and Kyrsten Sinema support the governor’s efforts to halt the invasion.   Meanwhile, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle want to know WHEN Joe Biden or “Kooky Kamala” Harris is going to visit the border and behold the BORDER CATASTROPHE that is occurring there 24/7.  This must stop.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Wednesday G: Crime And Punishment News / U.S. Department Of Justice News–  Senile old hag, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, continues blathering on about how ‘great it was for George Floyd to give up his life and to call out for his mama’ as he lay dying beneath the knee of convicted murderer and former Police Officer Derek Chauvin.  The leftists being what they are ALWAYS require martyrs so they can forge ahead with their sick agenda and poor Mr. Floyd was just another brick in the Democratic-Socialists’ wall.  Speaker Pelosi must lose her seat in 2022.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced that the feds are launching an investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department in a renewed drive to federalize as many police departments as possible.  This is what socialist-communist societies do, they bump up local law enforcement to federal level so they can then move them around- like the People’s Republic of China- so that law enforcement has NO ties to the communities they serve which leads to greater police brutality and mistreatment of the citizenry.  You can count on it.  This is precisely what the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act (or whatever BS name it goes by) is all about, federalizing ALL local and state law enforcement.  In other crime news, following the police shooting of a young black female attacking another with a butcher knife in Columbus, Ohio, last night, Democrats and their ‘tool’s like LeBron James are screeching for blood.  Someone, please, kick LeBron’s stupid ass.  Finally, a Virginia cop was fired- we repeat, FIRED- for donating $25 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund.  WTF?  Lt. William Kelly, an internal affairs officer in the Norfolk, Virginia, police department was terminated when his superiors learned of this callous doing in a FREE country.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday H: Crime And Punishment News Ii– After the Chauvin verdict yesterday, ‘peaceful protesters,’ aka Antifa, in Portland, Oregon, assaulted people on the street, set Starbucks stores ablaze, and attacked cops on the street.  Speaking of Officer Chauvin, he is being held in protective custody, i.e., in solitary confinement, to protect him from his fellow inmates.   Meanwhile, the four detestable skanks of the Squad, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and newbie Cori “The B***h” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, are driving up race hatred across the country while having the taxpayers spend tens of thousands of dollars to PROTECT THEM.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the case of ‘comfort women’ used by Imperial Japanese forces in the Pacific during World War II, South Korea- a country from which many of the sex slaves were taken- sides with Japan.   Speaking of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in says that ‘President Donald J. Trump failed to solve the North Korean problem.’  Uh, okay, but he gave it a better shot than any president since Ronald Reagan.   Next, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that the Chi-Coms WON’T reduce carbon emissions, nor will they slow their growth as the United States will willingly do.’  He is 100-percent correct.
  77. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Administration News I– Joe Biden is sending members of his Cabinet out to the various states to shill for his INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN, the one that costs $3.2 trillion, that very few want.   Speaking of the faux president, the Associate Press reports that Joe Biden plans to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 which means higher energy costs, less energy reliability, and a diminished middle class.   Next, Joe Biden plans to use his upcoming address to a joint session of Congress supposedly sometime in May to push for POLICE REFORM across the country.   Meanwhile, a stuttering and stammering Joe Biden says that he believes the bar to ‘convict cops is too high.’   Maybe you should zip your lips until AFTER justice has occurred there, Mr. Faux President.
  78. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Book publishers, Simon & Schuster announce that they reject a petition demanding they DON’T publish a book by Vice President Mike R. Pence.  They are going to move ahead with publication, damn the torpedoes.  Next, RINO King former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, N.J., says he could run for the White House in 2024.  It will be to YOUR embarrassment there, Big Boy.  Speaking of New Jersey, they are going to permit Gender “X” on the state’s driver’s licenses and identification cards.  Oh, goodie, kowtowing to the freaks yet again.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that failing to censure Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, yesterday has weakened both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Department of Justice.  As you know, she went to Minneapolis, Minnesota, over the weekend to stir up a lynch mob and to intimidate the jury in the trial of now-convicted murderer, Derek Chauvin.
  79. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– It appears that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, is becoming vulnerable amid ongoing attacks by President Donald J. Trump.  Former Democrat-turned-Republican and former state Representative Vernon Jones, GA 91st district,  is in a powerful position to knock Governor Kemp out in the primary election of next year.  Meanwhile, ever-drooling, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is floating the idea of a BIPARTISAN January 06, 2021, Commission to get to the bottom of the False Flag, Antifa-and-Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters that then became a mob and stormed Capitol Hill.  (Note- it does not require loads of intelligence to visualize that most of those people storming the Capitol, waving Confederate flags and what not weren’t crazed leftists bent on intimidating true protesters, lawmakers, and the American people into accepting what they know was stolen: the 2020 Presidential Election).  
  80. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III–  Next, the FBI releases a report on the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, the one that occurred on June 14, 2007, in Alexandria, Virginia, when a crazed BERNIE SANDERS VOTER attacked a baseball practice for House Republicans.  The FBI decided that the slain shooter, James Hodgkinson wanted to carry out a…wait for it…suicide by cop.  That’s right, that’s what the esteemed Federal Bureau of Investigation- in the hands of ‘highly capable’ Director Chris Wray pulled out of their hat.  What a deduction.  How sad is our world today?  Our government has become fully corrupted and it’s a shocking thing to behold for patriots.
  81. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3553 with a $40 million jackpot on the line: 03, 12, 17, 41, 42, and Mega 23.  Out of 114,936 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $40,636.   The winning ticket was sold at Fast Stop in Lake View Terrace, CA 91342.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a $90 million pot up for grabs: 21, 25, 32, 63, 67, and Powerball 06.  Out of 50,586 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,206.

  84. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 568,290 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 203,535 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 456 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  85. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,173,641 confirmed cases, 89,980 confirmed deaths, and 8,934,741 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,939,573 confirmed cases, 73,789 confirmed deaths, and 5,806,452 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 238,065 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,479,559 confirmed cases, 12,650 confirmed deaths, and 1,439,677 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Guam: they have 47,902 confirmed cases, 354 confirmed deaths, and 47,259 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]   
  86. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,047,693 confirmed cases, 10,658 confirmed deaths, and 4,009,152 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Falklands Islands, 219th place on the list: 128 cases of the virus, 0 confirmed death and 128 confirmed recoveries.[xix]

  88. 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 $5.689 per gallon, $4.113 in Florida, $5.243 in Hawaii, and $4.684 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Massachusetts- $4.124.  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 23rd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Colombia: $2.398 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,399,844,953,328 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  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 Australia the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates.  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).
  89. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian President Vladimir Putin is declaring ‘victory over Mariupol’ even though the Ukrainian defenders fighting in the ruins of the steel factory continue killing Russians by the score.  They will not surrender and it’s clear to any observer that Mariupol could become Putin’s Stalingrad, sort of a Putingrad.  Going to be good watching them annihilate the Russians.  In other areas where Ukrainian civilians have been victimized and crushed, the Russians are raising red victory flags.  Sounds like the Soviet Union is struggling to return for Round 2.  The Russians are preparing ‘referendums in the occupied areas’ so the grateful Ukrainians can kowtow to their Soviet masters.
  90. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Although it would be a good show of support for the United States to reopen its embassy in Kyiv, the Biden regime is resisting calls for it to do this morale-boosting step.  WTF is up with slobbering Joe?   Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says his country requires $7 billion per month to sustain his nation and its fight against the Russians.  Today, we also learned that money Joe Biden is sending to Ukraine also is helping to pay its civil service.  Wow.  In other news, Russia has slapped travel bans on Vice President Kamala Harris, the REAL PRESIDENT Ron Klain, and on Meta-Facebook’s ‘Little Mark’ Zuckerberg.
  91. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The 8th busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in Washington, D.C., today.  Keep ‘em coming.  Next, 21 red states are joining forces to stop the Biden regime ending Title 42 on May 23.  Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border for the past 384 days and it’s been 298 days since she arrived to do the job.  Since the first day of the year, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens is $707,111,130.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the Biden-Harris regime took charge is $42,452,916,873.  The number of illegals who have entered the U.S. since January 01, 2022, is an appalling 1,129,483.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the U.S. is 46,561,140.  We believe the truer number is close to 85-125 million illegal aliens. (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).
  92. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban meets with Pope Francis with the Russo-Ukrainian War as their backdrop.  Meanwhile, mystery continues surrounding WNBA star Britney Griner’s arrest and imprisonment in Russia.  In other horrifying news, Beijing has inked deals with the Solomon Islands and with Kiribati so its ships and security personnel can use them as ‘transit sites.’  (Note- the United States fought at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands and at Tarawa in present-day Kiribati during World War II and now the Chi-Coms have built forward bases threatening not only Australia and New Zealand but Hawaii and Guam as well as continues the isolation of Taiwan).
  93. 2022 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– U.S. Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, Dr. Mehmet Oz, says, ‘it’s time to for the U.S. to get back to reality on COVID-19.’  Next, the U.S. claims it’s extending COVID-19 vaccine mandates for illegal aliens at the southern border.  Uh, okay, sure you are.  Illegals can run around without following any COVID-19 mandates while the Biden regime is appealing the judge’s recent ruling ending mask mandates on public transit.
  94. 2022 Thursday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $49.11 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.39 (3) Novavax: $48.80 (4) Merck & Company: $86.23 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.36  (6) BioNTech: $147.84 (7) Moderna: $144.50.

  97. 2022 Thursday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $22.31 (2) Beyond Meat: $38.51  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $69.72.

  99. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is launching a new program with which it claims it will beckon in Ukrainian refugees but not across the U.S.-Mexico border.  That is for the Russians, the Third World, and the Chi-Coms to push their agents across amidst the sea of illegal aliens.  Next, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain- uh, ‘President’ Joe Biden- announces another $800 million in military aid to Ukraine.  How much will the Biden Family skim off the top?  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime has banned Russian vessels from visiting American ports.
  100. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– The FAA is going to review the parachute stunt that occurred yesterday in the nation’s Capital that caused a mass evacuation from the U.S. Capitol Building.  Next, here is one that is a head-scratcher: the U.S. Supreme Court is backing Joe Biden’s decision to DENY benefits to Puerto Rico.  What benefits are we discussing?  Well, these federal benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens.  These benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens and Joe Biden- with the support of the John Roberts’ Supreme Court is denying these benefits to low-income, elderly, and blind Puerto Ricans.  Where the hell is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, on this topic?  Her Abuelita lives in the PR so she should be screeching like a flipping banshee, yet she’s silent.  (Note- the chief justice must truly fear the Dems packing the court as why would he back a crazy move such as this?)
  101. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News III– Thirteen of the victims of Larry Nassar are suing the Federal Bureau of Investigation for $130 million for having f**ked up the investigation into the perverted coach.  Next, the Biden regime has contracted the release of another 30 million barrels of oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve.  We suspect that like previous withdrawals under the Biden regime, this oil will flow overseas to our ‘allies’ and not to the American people.  Speaking of the oil rip-off, Rep. Rick W. Allen, R-GA 12th district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies are bringing pain to the American people.’
  102. 2022 Thursday S: Joe Biden Regime News IV– U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen weighed the cost of the Russo-Ukrainian War on Russia’s frozen assets.  Next, Vice President Kamala Harris has lost her 13th staffer- this time, her Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy.  What can you say?  The VP is a bitch who slept her way to the top.  This is fitting justice for one half of this fraudulent administration, YOU steal an election, Karma has a way of coming back and biting you on your ass and this administration is going down the crapper.  Next, left-wing, Obama economist Austan Goolsbee says that the pandemic shutdowns are the main cause of the sky-rocketing inflation eating away at average Americans’ bank accounts.
  103. 2022 Thursday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Famed radio talk show host, Infowars’ Alex Jones, is seeking immunity from the January 06, 2021, Select House Committee.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. is expected to meet with this sham committee.
  104. 2022 Thursday U: Political News I– Although this sounds somewhat hopeful, the Cook Political Report says that 27 Democrat-controlled House seats are in the toss-up column in November.   Next, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd congressional district, denies ever having advised President Donald J. Trump that ‘if they impeach you, you should resign.’  He would never have said something such as that, huh.  We are beginning to suspect Leader McCarthy is in the same class with “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT.
  105. 2022 Thursday V: Political News II– Never say that President Donald J. Trump’s endorsements don’t matter (although this one leaves us puzzled).  J.D. Vance- venture capitalist and author- has seen his lead in the race for retiring Senator Rob Portman’s seat in Ohio has leapt by 7 points to the good.  One of his Republican challengers- Mike Gibbons- says he still can’t forget that Vance voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Neither can we.
  106. 2022 Thursday W: Political News III–  Talk about turning something once good into a piece of festering cow crap, other than Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the JFK Profiles in Courage Award is going to Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-large district, as well as to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, DS, the Copper State’s House Speaker Rusty Bowers, RINO, and to Peach State Election Department employee Wandrea “Shaye” Moss.
  107. 2022 Thursday X: Big Tech News– In a ‘put up or shut up move,’ tech multi-billionaire Elon Musk has $46.5 billion in cash with which to buy Twitter.  The price he is offering is $54.20.  Next, folks, it’s so successful that following its launch on March 29, 2022, it’s official: CNN+ is shutting down on April 30, 2022.  Adios, Chris Wallace.  POS.  In other news, the Florida House of Representatives voted to strip Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges.  This did not come easy, however, as Democrats and their rent-a-mobs of LGBTQIA+ crazed psychos tried to carry out an ‘insurrection’ a la January 6, 2021, of their own although very few news media sites are labeling it as such- but we will.
  108. 2022 Thursday Y: Sports News I– Here’s an interesting one: the NFL says that the black coaches’ discrimination lawsuits lack merit.  Wow.  We thought the NFL was all WOKE now and here they are throwing the black coaches’ suits under the bus.  Shame on them.
  109. 2022 Thursday Z: Miscellaneous News I– The Pro-Death Movement in Kentucky gains a temporary win what with a stay on the state’s new anti-abortion law.  For some reason, the Trump campaign has been ordered to pay $1.3 million in damages and attorneys’ fees to former adviser Omarosa Manigault.  Finally, some glorious film hit the news cycle today.  Some dumbass airlines passenger was hassling Mike Tyson during a flight and wouldn’t take ‘buzz off’ for an answer.  The former heavyweight champion turned around and punched the living shit out of this dimwit who then posted photos of his bloody face on TikTok.  Will they ever learn?

[i] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

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

[iii] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[iv] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[v] We promoted “Led Zeppelin IV” on Saturday, 12-July-2014.  This ranks among the greatest albums of all time.

[vi] This whack-job girl- Greta Thunberg- should get some sort of mental and emotional aid because she and other young people like her have been indoctrinated by people seeking to deploy them to carry out their Marxist agenda.

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.

Bush.  Of course, the Saudis denied this blatant attempt to sully their good nature.
  59. 2005 Wednesday: The BBC reports that the Tigris River in Iraq is becoming polluted with bodies, many with their throats cut and others completely decapitated.  Many believe these people were discovered to have been working with the occupation authorities.

  61. 2007 Friday: The state of Virginia begins the observance of a day of mourning for the victims of the Virginia Tech Massacre.  Of course, people want to take guns away from law-abiding people but never from the criminals and the nuts who utilize them to commit evil acts.

  70. 2017 Thursday: In Paris, a police van transporting criminals along the Champs Elysees suffers an attack by jihadists killing police officer and injuring two others.   Elsewhere, Australia beefs up its qualifications for one to become a citizen in their country by amending laws to demand stricter knowledge of the English language as well as a desire to become Australian and not remain some foreign-born piece of pond scum.  Wouldn’t it be great if the United States would do this?
  71. 2018 Friday: A federal court in Mexico declares sale of the controversial Barbie doll depicting artist, Frida Kahlo, cannot occur.  Not sure as to what the reasoning behind this is but folks, it is what it is.    Meanwhile, in the race for 2020, Senators Ron Johnson, R-WI, and “Little Bob” Corker, RINO-TN, opt NOT to endorse President Trump in the race for a second term.  Question is, “WHY?”  However, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that he will endorse President Trump for a second term.
  72. 2019 Saturday: Even though the Trump administration is going after ISIS, they still manage to cause damage and in Syria, over the past couple of days they have managed to kill at least 50 Syrian army soldiers and wound numerous others.  Doesn’t say much about the training given them by Russia or Iran.  Meanwhile, much to the dismay of the far-left liberals, the Mueller Report says, “NO Trump-Russia collusion but the possibility of obstruction still exists.’  Elsewhere, Central American illegal aliens trying to get into the United States are saying the Mexicans are abusing them as they hover around the southern border of their country and the United States.’
  73. 2020 Monday: The world continues suffering under the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis that is spreading around the world.  Today, we have 2,458,150 confirmed cases of the disease what with 168,906 confirmed deaths and 643,918 confirmed recoveries.   The Chinese claim 88,423 confirmed cases with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, the United States sees 789,439 confirmed cases what with 42,186 confirmed deaths, and 71,675 confirmed recoveries as of mid-day.  It is interesting to note that China’s figures change little from day to day which suggests they are either lying to the rest of the world or possess the cure which says a lot about communist governments.
  74. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 141,813,257 confirmed cases, +399,077, 3,027,182  confirmed deaths, +7,522, and 81,116,141 confirmed recoveries, +327,427.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,976,092 confirmed cases, UP 108,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 573,551 confirmed deaths, UP 924, and 119,041,372 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii] 
  75. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 248,829 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Meanwhile, a new study suggests that the ‘VID can affect the lungs via the gums.  Elsewhere, the European Union announces it will restart receiving shipments of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine despite reports of RARE BLOOD CLOTS afflicting some recipients of the vaccine.
  76. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,720,794 confirmed cases, 61,006 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,178,783 confirmed cases, 34,533 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,779 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 388,842 confirmed cases, 5,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kansas, the home of the conservative Midwest: they have 308,518 confirmed cases, 5,005 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  77. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,309 confirmed cases, 6,342 confirmed deaths, and 828,761 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Kuwait, the supposed missing province of Iraq: 258,497 cases of the virus, 1,456 confirmed deaths and 241,696 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    
  78. 2021 Tuesday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,821.30, DOWN 256.33 points (-0.75%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,786.27, DOWN 128.50 points (-0.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,134.94, DOWN 28.32 points (-0.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.42 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,779.20 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.88 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,189.50 per troy oz, -6.80 (-0.57%) while the price of COPPER is $4.20 per pound, -0.01 (-0.21%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,761.73 per troy oz, -49.92 (-1.78%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.72%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.98.     In Icelandic Krona, one greenback equals 125.91 and in Indian Rupee, a buck equals 75.38.[xiii]   
  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]

  91. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. 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.              
  92. 2022 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,162,004 confirmed cases, 89,844 confirmed deaths, and 8,931,498 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,935,813 confirmed cases, 73,759 confirmed deaths, and 5,805,626 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 237,950 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,477,863 confirmed cases, 12,626 confirmed deaths, and 1,438,605 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Puerto Rico: they have 499,539 confirmed cases, 4,188 confirmed deaths, and 473,564 confirmed recoveries.[xx]   
  93. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,044,994 confirmed cases, 10,658 confirmed deaths, and 3,941,841 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Montserrat, 218th place on the list: 177 cases of the virus, 2 confirmed death and 174 confirmed recoveries.[xxi]                         
  94. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,160.79, UP 249.59 points (+0.71%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,453.07 DOWN 166.59 points (-1.22%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,459.45, DOWN 2.76 points (-0.062%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $102.56 per barrel, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of GOLD is $1,955.90 per troy oz., +0.30 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.21 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.24%).  The price of PLATINUM is $984.30 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.27%) while the price of COPPER is $4.66 per pound, +0.01 (+0.18%).[xxii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,443.32 per troy oz., -8.61 (-0.35%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,750.00 per troy oz., -150.00 (-0.79%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, +5,000.00 (+0.45%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,270.00 per USD/T, +9.00 (+0.28%). The price of ZINC is $4,418.00 per USD/T., -80.50 (-1.79%).   The price of COCOA is $2,536.00 per USD/T, +11.00 (+0.44%).  The price of COFFEE is $218.80 per USD/T, -2.50 (-1.13%).  The price of CORN is $812.75 per USD/T, -3.25 (-0.40%).  The price of LUMBER is $995.60 USD 1,000 board feet +57.00 (+6.07%).[xxiii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000024.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.00, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 79.78 of theirs.    In Moroccan Dirham, one greenback equals 9.80 and in Mozambican Metical, a buck equals 63.20 and in Myanmar Kyat, one dollar equals 1,850.00 of theirs.[xxiv]       
  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.

2022 Wednesday X: There’s always more…

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.

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

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

  49. 2005 Monday: In the Papal Conclave of 2005, senior cardinals signal no new pope has been chosen by sending up black smoke, the traditional method of signaling no decision.  When white smoke goes up, they have made their choice and will inform the world.  We will await the decision.

  56. 2012 Wednesday: The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission together complete rules to limit which firms are required to register with either or both agencies as ‘swap dealers.’  Elsewhere, the wimpified U.S. military is condemning photos of U.S. servicemen posing with the corpses of mangled suicide bombers.  At least two such incidents occurred.  (Note- they should have seen photos from the Vietnam War.  It was what it was).
  57. 2013 Thursday: Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f, two planets resembling planet Earth are discovered revolving around the star Kepler-62 in the habitable zone, an area around the stars whose atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at the surface.   Elsewhere, President Barack Obama visits the city of Boston.  Meanwhile, as a condition of talking to the Obama administration, North Korea demands that all UN-imposed sanctions on their country be lifted or screw off.
  58. 2014 Friday: About 80 miles northwest of the resort town of Acapulco, Mexico, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hits but the authorities report only minimal damage.  Elsewhere, in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, pro-Russian thugs holding government buildings refuse to surrender them to Ukrainian authorities threatening an international incident.  Kiev needs to send in some worse thugs than the Russian scum holding them and evict them right into a prison cell.  This is what happens when an American president- Bill Clinton- promised the Ukrainians that ‘America would come to their defense if they would only surrender their nuclear weapons.’  This mess occurred shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union.
  59. 2015 Saturday: In Nigeria, 17 people die from a mystery disease within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.  Tests show that the disease is not viral; however, currently, there is no identification.  Elsewhere, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inducts Ringo Starr[vi] (finally!), the Paul Butterfield Blues Band[vii] (finally!), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts[viii] (finally!), Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble[ix] (guy’s been dead quite a while), Green Day[x], Bill Withers[xi], Lou Reed[xii] (finally), and the Five Royals.
  60. 2016 Monday: U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter arrives in Baghdad and informs his counterparts that in an effort to defeat ISIS, the U.S. will be sending more troops to help Iraqi troops repel the murderous thugs.  Elsewhere, in the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, a migrant boat off the coast of Egypt, overloaded with Somali immigrants bound for Italy capsizes and at least 400 of the travelers drown.
  61. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low-cost foreign workers. 
  62. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  63. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  64. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Saturday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former 72nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul H. O’Neill died at age 84.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, to December 31, 2002.

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

  70. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 81.80 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.98.[xvi]
  71. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.968 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.745 in Hawaii, and $3.371 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.676.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,186,291,746,801 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]
  72. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS– in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I– Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously, and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021, and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  76. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III– Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin, which is not right, but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  77. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I– Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in an advantageous position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  78. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  79. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.

  81. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 566,404 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

105. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, APRIL 15, 2022

Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing. We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing.

In the United States, confirmed cases sit at 641,919 what with confirmed deaths at 28,399 and confirmed recoveries at 52,196.  Now the Beijing bullshitters claim in the People’s Republic of China, there are 84,489 confirmed cases and 3,342 confirmed deaths and 78,987 confirmed recoveries.  We know this is bullshit, folks, as Western intel agencies say there are at least 2.5 million confirmed deaths and God knows how many cases.  When this ends and it will, it will be time to sue every level of government in the communist country and to welcome Nationalist China- Taiwan- back to the United Nations as a FREE and INDEPENDENT COUNTRY because until the West sold them out to open the doors for the commies, they WERE China.

Trump calls for government to reconvene so the House and Senate can begin doing the work of the American people instead of sitting home spanking the wank.
  58. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 138,340,920 confirmed cases, +493,648, 2,974,830  confirmed deaths, +9,631, and 78,785,642 confirmed recoveries, +237,506.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,682,046 confirmed cases, UP 73,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 570,531 confirmed deaths, UP 975, and 119,012,328 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[v]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.

  62. 2021 Thursday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,035.99, UP 305.10 points (+0.90%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,038.76, UP 180.92 points (+1.31%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,170.42, UP 45.76 points (+1.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.32 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.22%).  The price of GOLD is $1,764.40 per troy oz., -2.40 (-0.14%) while the price of SILVER is $25.93 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,197.20 per troy oz, -3.00 (-0.25%) while the price of COPPER is $4.23 per pound, +0.01 (+0.17%).[viii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,740.43 per troy oz, +63.98 (+2.39%).[ix] The price of RHODIUM is $28,100.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[x]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000016.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Georgian Lari, one greenback equals 3.42 and in Ghana Cedi, a buck equals 5.76.[xi]   
  63. 2021 Thursday 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 $3.940 per gallon, $2.837 in Florida, $3.749 in Hawaii, and $3.345 in Washington state.[xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Idaho: $3.066.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,174,429,261,064 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. 
  64. 2021 Thursday F: COVID-19 NEWS– thanks to the Chi-Com gift that simply won’t stop giving, Pfizer’s CEO is now saying everyone may have to take a booster shot for the diabolical Xi Jinping Bat Flu every flipping year.  Screw that.  We are not taking the shot.  Period.   Meanwhile, Merck is planning on launching an outpatient COVID-19 pill.  How about hydroxychloroquine?  People in Africa don’t seem to be getting the gripe as much as other places in the world.  Next, a new poll suggests that 1-in-5 Republicans have no plans on getting the ‘Mark of the Beast’ whereas Sheeple Democrats want to get it (and still teachers don’t want to return to work). 
  65. 2021 Thursday G: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– Joe Biden signed an executive order today declaring Russia to be a national security threat (while giving the Chi-Coms a pass.  Good going, Joe).  As Old Joe signs the order, the U.S. begins expelling Russian diplomats and slapping new sanctions on Moscow.  Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that Joe Biden’s order is a ‘legality’ with which to permit action against the Russians for the SolarWinds hack.   Meanwhile, more Republican lawmakers are pushing back against the ‘Biden plan’ to leave Afghanistan.  Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says that ‘pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan on September 11, 2021- the 20-year anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist event- is an insult to the American people.  We concur.
  66. 2021 Thursday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, is putting forth a bill with which to designate the Mexican drug cartels as ‘terrorist organizations.’  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Kat Cammack lambastes Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as being ‘too scared, too cowardly to address Border Patrol officers face-to-face.’  We concur on this point, too.  Speaking of the border catastrophe, Governor Henry McMaster, R-SC 117th governor of the state, says that ‘Trump had it under control and that the Biden regime should return to his policies.’  Speaking of Joe Biden, former Governor Chris Christie, RINO-NJ, says that ‘Republicans should just get to the point and call out Joe Biden for being a LIAR.’  Amen.  In other border news, we hear that “Kooky Kamala” Harris could soon be visiting the southern border.  Oh, goodie.   Finally, the lack of sufficient DNA testing at the southern border is going to allow more FAKE FAMILIES into the United States.[xiv] 
  67. 2021 Thursday I: CRITICAL RACE THEORY / RACE / CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS– Joe Biden’s ambassador to the United Nations- Linda Thomas-Greenfield much to the delight of the Third World thugs and dictators of the ‘august world body’ criticized the United States for being a racist hellhole.  Wow.  Why do all these people of color want to come to the U.S.?   Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, slams another Biden flunky, this one being little bigot and hater Kristin Clarke, nominated to be Assistant Attorney General at the Civil Rights Division, for claiming to support the cops when she has articles and social media posts in which, she condemns all law enforcement as being racists.  ‘Which is it, Ms. Clarke?’  The little b***h could not answer Senator Cruz.  In other ‘race news,’ Fort Jackson drill instructor Jonathan Pentland is in trouble for pushing a black guy protesting in his neighborhood.  He has been charged with 3rd assault and Black Lives Matter protesters are surrounding his home day and night.   Finally, Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin waives his right to testify at his murder trial. (Note- riots continue in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the fourth night in a row while Officer Kim Potter appeared in court today over the death of Duante Wright).  
  68. 2021 Thursday J: FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND SUPREME COURT NEWS– Congressman Jerrold “Jerry” “Pillsbury Doughboy” Nadler, D-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, debuted their plan to ‘unpack’ the U.S. Supreme Court with their new bill with which to expand the high court to 13 seats so as to nullify President Donald J. Trump’s three successful SCOTUS picks, two of which, the two Democrats claim he stole from them.  Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that ‘responsible people must denounce the liberals’ court-packing scheme.’  We shall see.  Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘IF the Dems expand the court to 13 seats, the nation’s high court will lose all legitimacy.’  We agree.   Speaking of the high court, it upholds a lower court ruling in Ohio that bans abortions because of Down’s syndrome.  In other news, the U.S. Department of the Treasury says that a ‘spy’ working for Paul Manafort, Konstantin Kliminik passed sensitive Trump polling data onto Russian intelligence back in 2016.
  69. 2021 Thursday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– The state of Florida passed a bill prohibiting trannys from participating in scholastic sports to which we say, “How about a third category of scholastic sports?  How about tranny sports?  Cheaper to build new locker rooms and showers than to continue fighting this BS in courts.”  Ah, well, congratulations, Florida!  The NCAA says it won’t hold any further sporting events in states that ARE NOT WOKE.  We say, “F**k them.”  Elsewhere, Arizona is going to hold the election ballot recounts from 2020 in the Veterans Memorial Colosseum.   In other news, Republican senators are reintroducing a ban on the use of TikTok[xv] on federal devices and on federal grounds.  A similar bill is going to appear in the U.S. House of Representatives.   Meanwhile, in the Arkansas gubernatorial race, former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has amassed $5 million already.
  70. 2021 Thursday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– A new Quinnipiac Poll says that 52-percent of Americans disapprove of the job Joe Biden is doing while only 48-percent say he’s the ‘bomb.’  The guy is a senile loser.  Next, the GOP U.S. Senate race in Pennsylvania is shaping up to be a SUPER MAGA PRO-TRUMP PRIMARY BATTLE.  Next, people are wondering if President Donald J. Trump is going to endorse a candidate to whoop Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s butt in Wyoming?  We think so.  Today, he stood with Wyoming’s GOP Chairman Frank Eathorne, who happened to be in Washington, D.C., on January 06, 2021, the day the Democrats launched the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in U.S. political history.[xvi]   In other news, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, condemns Biden’s intel leaders over their ‘politicizing and weaponizing intelligence information.’
  71. 2021 Thursday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– A recent poll says that ’72-percent of the American people support the Second Amendment.’  Guns are not going anywhere.  Just saying. In other news, a split congress may take different paths to trying to pass Joe Biden’s $2.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill,’ aka the BIDEN PORKULUS BILL.  We hope it goes straight into the crapper.  Next, we learn that intelligence leaders have confirmed what we all knew: that the ‘Russians are paying bounties on U.S. soldiers killed’ was nothing more than a crock of crap.  According to them, there is low to moderate confidence that this is true.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says the allegations against him are not true.  OF COURSE, THEY ARE NOT FLIPPING TRUE, Congressman McCarthy, the stuff the Dems are doing to him comes straight out of Saul Alinsky’s book, “Rules for Radicals.”  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence received a pacemaker for his heart today.  Finally, federal law enforcement is telling all citizens living along the southern border to arm up for their own protection.
  72. 2021 Thursday N: BUSINESS NEWS– McDonald’s restaurants are going to implement new employee training in all 39,000 of its restaurants across the globe seeing as how some sexual harassment complaints have been filed against employees in some of them.  Good for you, y’all WOKE now.  Elsewhere, Deliveroo’s food delivery system has seen its orders double in Q-1.  In other business news, Jeff Bezos says- having survived the union attempt at one of his factories- that he will do a better job for his employees.  Meanwhile, last week, there were 576,000 initial unemployment claims which is the lowest number since the Chi-Coms sent the Xi Jinping Bat Flu around the globe.
  73. 2021 Thursday O: CRAZY NEWS–  The AP Style Book says the term, ‘mistress,’ should no longer be used as (1) it implies the woman is to blame in a long-term sexual relationship with man and (2) there is no male counterpart which some say is bogus as ‘cheater’ is a good name for a man involved in a long-term, ‘down-low’ relationship whether with a woman or another man.  WOKE strikes again.   Elsewhere, Facebook’s oversight board is weighing the future of President Donald J. Trump’s social media fate.   Next, filmmaker Jeremy Corbett says that the videos have of UFOs are the best he has ever seen, deeming them authentic.  We look forward to the report that supposedly is coming out on June 01, 2021.  We will believe it when we see it as the federal government has made promises such as full disclosure before and always reneged on them.   According to the National UFO Reporting Center, there were 7,263 sightings in the U.S. alone compared to 5,796 the year before which says it appears we are entering what UFO experts call a ‘flap year.’  
  74. 2022 Friday: Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing.  We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing.

[i] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of UFO and of the Michael Schenker Group at some point within the next year.  We hope you will remain vigilant as to the day that we do.

[iii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both Emerson, Lake & Palmer along with the Nice at some point soon.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.  Thank you.

[v] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[vi] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

[vii] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] Commodities – Oil, Silver and Gold Prices – CNN Business– see this site for daily commodity information.

[xiv] We say the time is coming when the states are going to have to lay in minefields, antivehicle, antipersonnel, and anti-boat traps to take out the scumbags as they attempt to storm our country.  We also believe that a few thousands dollars’ worth of lead will stop the tidal wave once and for all.  NO other nation in the world would prevent the disaster our nation is undergoing due to weak, spineless leaders in the BOGUS, we repeat, BOGUS regime currently occupying the White House.   

[xv] TikTok remains one of the Chi-Coms’ best intelligence gathering devices around the world but especially here in the United States.

[xvi] Speaking of the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, testimony before congress yesterday and today suggests that Capitol Hill law enforcement was woefully unprepared, that they were lacking intelligence, and even worse, that many were told to stand down although no one clearly knows who the person giving the orders was.  Can we suggest, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is in charge of the Capitol Hill cops.  Let us look at her first.  Thank you.

Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing.

  86. 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 $5.730 per gallon, $4.035 in Florida, $5.232 in Hawaii, and $4.659 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Georgia- $3.731.  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 15th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Bolivia: $2.059 per U.S. Gallon.[ix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,382,615,236,722 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 Bermuda the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Netherlands.  This nation holds $70,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  87. 2022 Wednesday F: Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing.  We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record companies being what they are- capitalist, money-making entities- and God bless them for that- released Rick Danko’s next album, “At Dylan’s Café, Washington, D.C., December 1987” on May 23, 2007.  Rick was a talented musician and a unique vocalist; his style could evoke emotions that could overwhelm his listeners.  The record company offered two discs with more than 30 tunes from two shows he performed on this legendary night.  If you love the man, his music, as well as the Band, we hope you will seek this one out, give it a listen if you can and then consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we think you will be glad you did.  Look for it now.
