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

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

Trump.’  Wow).[xxi]

  81. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that while the Dems claim to SUPPORT Israel, they put forth a true anti-Semite POS such as Colin Kahl for the No. 3 position at the Pentagon: the undersecretary for policy.  (Note- Mr. Kahl says he will take a bipartisan approach to his job.  Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy- what a guy).  Next, President Donald J. Trump says of Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, that in so many words, she is a ‘LOSER.’   Moving on, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, is trying to save his job by signing a tough abortion bill preventing abortion for genetic abnormalities.   Meanwhile, Congressmen Jeff Duncan, R-SC 3rd congressional district, and Doug Lamborn, R-CO 5th congressional district, are pushing back HARD on the Biden’s regime pushing of the bogus Critical Race Theory which is Critical Race Theory BS.  Good for you gentlemen!  Finally, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘don’t denigrate Arizona’s 2020 Election audit.’  Amen.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– In some shocking news today, the feds swooped down on ‘America’s Mayor’ and Donald J. Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and removed all of his electronic devices in an early morning raid.  Mr. Giuliani offered to meet with the authorities and to hand over his devices but no, much like they did during the raid on Roger Stone’s home, they wanted to INTIMIDATE the man, trying to tie to him the crimes committed by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine.  Likewise, they also raided the home of Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, two more big Trump supporters and legal eagles.   In other news, as California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to whine and cry over the recall effort against him, one of the recall advisers says that ‘one-third of the signatories are Democrats, one-third are independents, and one-third are Republicans.’  Everyone wants Gavin Newsom OUT of office ASAP.[xxii]   Finally, Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is working with Stephen Miller to defeat Joe Biden’s RACIST policies on equity rather than equality when it comes to providing aid to farmers.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– An alternate juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial says that ‘mob riots, protests, and the racial climate did NOT influence the jury’s decision.’  Sure.  Uh huh, of course not.  Next, following a cop shooting of a black suspect, a North Carolina judge denies a request for the video cam footage.   Next, a video shows that a California man died while the cops were holding him.  Here we go again.   Regarding firearms, a new poll shows that support for heavier gun laws is lacking support among the American people.
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: Notable Departure– NASA Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins is dead at the age of 90.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3555 with a $41 million pot on the line tonight: 14, 18, 19, 33, 37, and Mega 19.  Out of 116,245 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $41,234.  The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in Coarsegold, CA 93614.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #841 with a $116 million pot on the line: 16, 18, 35, 39, 53, and Powerball 21.   Out of 55,428 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $859,829.  The winning ticket was sold at Stater Brothers 188 in Grand Terrace, CA 92313.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: The Wrap-Up– Amazing to see Joe Biden’s ‘address’ in which, he praised the police, noting most of them are okay.  Here is how socialism works- you grind law enforcement and the military in the dirt, kick them in the teeth, beat them up, purge them, and then when they can take no more, you make a deal: IF you don’t want things to return to the way they were- you being public enemies and all- you will now serve as storm-troopers and go after our enemies.  YOU can do whatever you want to them and without any oversight or parameters.  This is evil- glad I am now in Israel- Mo.  We love and cherish our freedoms… Meanwhile, the three people involved in the death of Ahmaud Arbery have been indicted on hate crimes charges.   A federal grand jury indicted Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan today which is good.  These three crackers have much for which to answer.
  87. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 512,067,467 confirmed cases, +785,425, 6,255,853 confirmed deaths, +2,360 and 465,824,561 confirmed recoveries, +566,075. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 82,950,138 confirmed cases, UP 61,891 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,020,124 confirmed deaths, UP 350,[xxiii] and 80,618,357 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,438.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xxiv]
  88. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,831 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,076 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 463 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  89. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,216,406 confirmed cases, 90,343 confirmed deaths, and 8,963,856 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,964,981 confirmed cases, 73,928 confirmed deaths, and 5,816,157 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 248,405 confirmed cases, 1,418 confirmed deaths, and 239,022 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,493,194 confirmed cases, 12,686 confirmed deaths, and 1,445,808 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Navajo Nation: they have 53,381 confirmed cases, 1,758 confirmed deaths, and 51,519 confirmed recoveries.[xxv]   
  90. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,071,491 confirmed cases, 10,695 confirmed deaths, and 4,033,472 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Nauru, 226th place on the list: 4 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 3 confirmed recoveries.[xxvi]                         
  91. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,916.39, UP 614.46 points (+1.85%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,871.53 UP 382.60 points (+3.06%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,287.50, UP 103.54 points (+2.47%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $105.11 per barrel, +3.09 (+3.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.80 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $23.17 per troy ounce, -0.30 (-1.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $909.90 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.05%) while the price of COPPER is $4.44 per pound, -0.04 (-0.86%).[xxvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,249.53 per troy oz., +46.71 (+2.12%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,095,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,039.00 per USD/T, -54.50 (-1.76%). The price of ZINC is $4,136.00 per USD/T., -83.50 (-1.98%).   The price of COCOA is $2,575.00 per USD/T, +7.00 (+0.27%).  The price of COFFEE is $218.40 per USD/T, +2.45 (+1.13%).  The price of CORN is $817.00 per USD/T, +1.50 (+0.18%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,043.80 USD 1,000 board feet -8.60 (-0.82%).[xxviii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.62 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.95 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.45, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 70.25 of theirs.    In Rwandan Franc, one greenback equals 1,010.05 and in St. Helena Pound, a buck equals 0.80 and in El Salvadoran Colón, one dollar equals 8.75 of theirs.[xxix]       
  92. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.176 in Florida, $5.256 in Hawaii, and $4.691 in Washington state.[xxx]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Montana- $4.097.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 30th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Chad: $3.206 per U.S. Gallon.[xxxi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,414,818,869,159 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg the SIXTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil.  This nation holds $258,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  93. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Sensing that Joe Biden is on the verge of mental collapse, Russia once again warned the United States of potential retaliation over America’s asinine sanctions.   Meanwhile, Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, says he ‘witnessed ample signs of Russian war crimes in Ukraine’ during a recent visit to that war-torn country.  Next, reports continue to arise of the Russian navy employing dolphins to guard their Black Sea base at Sebastopol.  This has been tried before but has never proven successful.  Still, with the Russkies, one never knows.
  94. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The Russians have raised rocket and missile attacks on Ukraine once again.  Several blasts rocked Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, today.   The British minister of defense- Ben Wallace- says that ‘Russia could become a cancerous growth in Ukraine.’  Meanwhile, Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax this evening that if Russia were to use tactical nukes in Ukraine, ‘all bets would be off, and the U.S. must put troops on the ground in direct conflict with the Russkies.’  This is becoming more ludicrous by the day.  We cannot fight a land war with Russia in eastern Europe, it’s impossible to do and will lead to the Chi-Coms becoming the world’s master.  Not good.
  95. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been the nation’s ‘border czar’ for the past 391 days and even worse, she has not arrived to do her job in 305 days.  Our estimates of the rising costs associated with rising numbers of illegal aliens continues breaking records every day.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 118 days is $752,442,887.  Next, the cost of caring for the detritus of the world since the Biden-Harris regime grabbed power on January 20, 2021, is $42,498,248,630.  The number of illegal aliens encountered at the border since January 01, 2022, is approximately 1,203,637.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 46,635,294.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 95-to-130 million which is unsustainable for any country and must be fixed now.  Deport ALL of them.  Now.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  96. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says the southern border is ‘broken because of Joe Biden’s attitude.’  George P. Bush, R-TX, says that the southern border is ‘out of control.’  Next, while testifying before the Congress, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the only solution for solving the border crisis is to give every illegal alien who has swarmed across it amnesty.  Folks, not only this insane, it’s also the kill stroke for the United States.  It’s over, it’s done, it’s finished.  In other border-related news, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is seeking donations with which to bus illegal aliens into Washington, D.C.  While we think this is great, how about finding a way to push them back across the border into Mexico?   Simultaneously, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, is suing the Biden regime over its upcoming plan to lessen border security next month with the overturning of Title 42.  DHS Secretary Mayorkas says he believes there will be 18,000 or more encounters of illegal aliens per day once the pro-American Title 42 ends.  We must fight back against this evil.
  97. 2022 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $50.55 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.22 (3) Novavax: $44.27 (4) Merck & Company: $88.61 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.59  (6) BioNTech: $143.40 (7) Moderna: $142.52.
  98. 2022 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $98.09 (2) Boeing: $154.19 (3) General Dynamics: $242.20 (4) Lockheed Martin: $441.69 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $445.17.
  99. 2022 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.22 (2) DuPont: $67.58 (3) 3M: $147.21 (4) Honeywell: $189.92  (5) Teijen: $1,388.00.
  100. 2022 Thursday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.06 (2) Beyond Meat: $39.82  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $69.55.
  101. 2022 Thursday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $156.21 (2) Lowe’s: $205.13 (3) Home Depot: $312.04 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $562.00 (5) Amazon: $2,891.93.
  102. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden endorsed a new bill that will funnel assets seized from Russian oligarchs to Ukraine.  Joe also asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in aid for Ukraine which means the Biden regime will most likely skim off 12-20-percent for the Biden Family’s coffers.
  103. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll pulls NO punches and says that a large majority of Americans blame Joe Biden for skyrocketing gas prices.   In other disastrous news for the Biden regime, the Chi-Coms and Iran are going to increase their mutual defense pact.  This is a direct slap in the face of slobbering Joe Biden.  In yet another problem for the feeble U.S. ‘president’- one who could not speak today at a ‘press conference’ of sorts without going totally BLANK in his thoughts, words, and speech- parental rights groups are pushing back with growing force over Joe’s suggestion that children do not belong to their parents but to the regime.  George Orwell could not have foretold the topics of his classic novel, “1984,” than what we are seeing today.
  104. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– President Ron Klain, uh, excuse me, President Joe Biden, continues dangling the bait that the Biden regime could cancel all CURRENT student debt but not over $50,000.  Alas, it must be an election year for this carrot of the carrot of ‘reparations for slavery’ to be dangling in front of the young, dumb, and full of c*m voters.  Should Joe Biden cancel student loan debt, he will alienate all those who have struggled to pay their loans off who by far outnumber those who have not.
  105. 2022 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The House select committee investigating (yeah, right) the FALSE FLAG EVENTS of January 06, 2021, announce their plan to hold at least eight public hearings, beginning in June, in the hope of somehow influencing the voters to vote ‘D’ on their ballots in November.  We suspect their ratings will be at the bottom of the crapper.  We also suspect the American people will become even more infuriated with the regime and its allies than they are now and if- we repeat- IF- the elections are honest, the Dems are going to go the way of the dinosaur.
  106. 2022 Thursday S: Big Tech News– CNN + threw in the towel today, two full days ahead of the scheduled shutdown on April 30, 2022.

[i] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years.

[ii] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[iii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[iv] As is the norm, we visit Martin Windrow’s amazing book, “The Last Valley,” De Capo Press (2006) as well as Time-Life Books for relevant information on this critical fight against communism.

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

[vi] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[ix] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 146,144,571 Cases and 3,097,090 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

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

[xi] See previous.

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

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

  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.”

  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.

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. 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 204,268 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 458 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

Sadly, for the Ukrainian people, the plea by the ineffective secretary of state went nowhere.

  59. 2016 Monday: NASA declares February 2016 the warmest month ever in recorded history- 1.35 degrees Celsius above the long-term average.  Hence why the liberals continue claiming we have ’10 years’ before it’s all over and done.  Meanwhile, as the Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis, Israeli Defense Forces shoot and kill at least 3 jihadists.
  60. 2017 Tuesday: The European Court of Justice announces a ruling that will permit companies to ban employees from wearing religious symbols including- get this- head scarves.  Meanwhile, after a five-year lull, Somali pirates take to the seas once again and attack an oil tanker and kidnap several members of the UAE-owned vessel.

  62. 2019 Thursday: A gunman in Christchurch, New Zealand, live-streamed attacks on two separate mosques murdered at least 49 Muslims and wounded numerous others.  The attacker, a 28-year-old white Australian, said he was angry over the massive numbers of Muslims flooding that South Pacific island nation and posted a 74-page, anti-immigrant manifesto online.  Most of the Muslims slain died at the first mosque he attacked, the Masjid Al Noor, occurred there around 1:45 p.m. while the second mosque he attacked, the Linwood Masjid Mosque, saw most of the rest killed there.  He also attacked some in the street and made sure he finished off wounded Muslims with kill shots.  Question: WHY are there so many Muslims in New Zealand?  What is wrong with these people?
  63. 2020 Saturday: The COVID-19 Chi-Com lab-engineered Pangolin-Bat Flu, the Yellow Terror, continues sweeping the globe.  People in Sub-Saharan Africa are turning up with the disease, most likely transported there by the Chi-Coms who are busy colonizing the entire continent.  President Donald J. Trump reports that he has been tested for this rapidly spreading virus after coming into contact with an infected individual, a close subordinate of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.   His test is negative. At least 16 U.S. states have closed their schools in an attempt to staunch the spread of the Panda Pandemic.  Meanwhile, election season continues what with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, D-VT, winning the Northern Marianas caucuses.  You go, Bernie, you go! 
  64. 2021 Sunday: Here we are, another day- stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms and their stooge in the White House are up to today- you know you want to know.   First, Department of Homeland Security Director Antonio Mayorkas orders FEMA to the southern border to help care for the thousands of illegal alien brats crossing the border.  It is akin to a ‘children’s crusade,’ one we must stop with minefields, antipersonnel and antivehicular barriers, ditches, trenches, foo gas pits, and heavy weapons positions.   Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador is asking the Biden administration, “WTF?”  He says the Biden administration policies are increasing the flow of transnational criminals, human traffickers, diseased people, and even terrorists.  It must stop.  We encourage the Mexicans to militarize their southern border.  Once people begin trying to force their way in, you shoot of them, they’ll stop coming.  F**k these illegals wearing these ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden shirts.   Speaking of the BORDER CRISIS, that dimwitted dingbat, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, says that ‘Joe Biden inherited the border crisis.’  The border was mostly secure whereas now, it’s a disaster.  Oh, if only UFW boss Cesar Chavez were alive, he’d have union members arrayed along the southern border beating the s**t out of these people as they tried to cross it.[xii]  Even RINO Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO-LA, says that ‘Joe Biden is responsible for the disaster on the southern border.’  (He’s trying to get back in the good graces of Republican voters after voting to convict President Donald J. Trump).
  65. 2021 Sunday A: Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s policies have led to the intentional flooding of the United States with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens.’  Real Clear Politics White House reporter Phil Wegman says that ‘family encounters of illegal aliens went up 164-percent this past February.’  NOT GOOD.  In other federal government news, the National Guard Association head- Major General Michael McGuire- disputes U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin’s call for a permanent contingent of National Guard troops to defend the Capitol from disgruntled ‘Trump supporters.’  They want to pull out.  Speaking of the Biden administration’s desire to keep troops and fencing up around the capital, the residents of Washington, D.C. are protesting the illegal occupation of their city.  They want Fort Pelosi torn down and the troops returned home.
  66. 2021 Sunday B: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton vows to continue the fight against the criminal actions of the Biden administration.   Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, is calling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi a HYPOCRITE because the speaker is trying to overturn the election of Republican Marionette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district as she won a close election.  Madam Pelosi is trying to strip Congresswoman Miller-Meeks of her seat and insert a rabid Democrat into her place.  Stand strong, Iowa!  Speaking of Pelosi, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, blasts Pelosi as being little more than a hypocrite.  We say Speaker Pelosi is a loser, a feeble, senile old crone of a loser.  In other news, Arizona is going to conduct a FULL AUDIT of the 2020 Election after bags of shredded ballots were discovered by dumpster divers.  Karen Fann- president of the Arizona State Senate says that questions continue to arise over the authenticity of the election and that Maricopa County where much of the fraud occurred will have to answer for their actions.  We learned that approximately 660,892 ballots demand further investigation which would easily throw the state to President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of election fraud, Phillip Kline of the Amistad Project says in so many words that new documents continue to arise showing collusion between Facebook and other social media entities with the Democrats to STEAL the 2020 Presidential Election.
  67. 2021 Sunday C: Across the country, one state after another are standing up to defy the “Pro-China Joe” Biden administration over its tranny rulings.  Utah, Michigan, North Dakota, Alabama, Mississippi, Montana, Texas, Missouri, Tennessee, and others are fighting back to protect girls’ and women’s sports from being overrun with sick males who claim they are ‘girls trapped in boys’ bodies’ (yeah, right).  Good for you, keep up the fight, we support you!  Speaking of sick people, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is asking Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to look into his heart and consider resigning.  Madam Speaker, this POS is not going to resign, even when his dimwitted twin Mayor Bill Di Blasio of New York City says Cuomo ‘should resign.’  The person who WON’T comment on “Killer Cuomo” is Vice President Kamala Harris, Joe Biden’s No. 2.  We thought she was big on, “WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS!  WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS!  WE BELIEVE SURVIVORS!”  So, what’s up, Kooky Kamala?  You don’t believe the survivors of Cuomo’s sexual depredations?
  68. 2021 Sunday D: Problems in Myanmar continue to escalate what with the junta sending militarized police into the streets to crush resistance to their criminal takeover of government.  At least 70 people have been killed by government forces with at least 12 shot dead over the weekend in Yangon.  The United States condemns such actions, yet Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi wants to maintain troops with heavy weapons capabilities in Washington, D.C., at her Fort Pelosi.   Speaking of violence, at a party in Chicago early this morning, 13 people were shot and two killed.  How about that ‘gun control?’  In other ‘violence news,’ protests erupt across the country on the one-year anniversary of Breonna Taylor’s death, many of the ‘protests’ becoming violent mob actions.
  69. 2021 Sunday E: The Biden administration continues to be exasperated over not hearing back from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Maybe it’s because you called Kim a ‘thug’ and said you ‘wouldn’t talk to him unless he called you and said he was going to denuclearize his country.’  Kim doesn’t respect YOU, ‘President Biden.’  He knows YOU stole the election and are NOT the legitimate leader of our country.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin are traveling to Japan and South Korea to discuss North Korea and communist China.  After spending four days there, the two will head to Anchorage, Alaska, where they will be joined by National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan and their Chi-Com counterparts.  Guess they didn’t want to go to visit the Chi-Coms and bend over for the anal swabs.
  70. 2021 Sunday F: Even not yet a declared candidate in next year’s race for a Georgia U.S. Senate seat, NFL great Hershel Walker is leading communist candidate, Reverend Raphael Warnock, Democratic-Socialist.   Rev. Warnock- YOU cannot serve God and Karl Marx at the same time, sir.  We hope YOU lose.  Meanwhile, Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan, R-AK, is calling out “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s hypocrisy when it comes to NOT using natural gas, something the United States in general and Alaska in particular has massive reserves of, reserves that could be sold to foreign nations.  In other political news, Andrew Knaggs of Pacem Solutions International says that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is trying to create diversions such as lowering the age for seniors to obtain Chi-Vi vaccines to 60 from 65 so as to deflect heat from his shoulders for the 15,000-20,000 nursing home deaths HIS policies caused.  We won’t allow him to distract us, Mr. Knaggs.
  71. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,764,490 confirmed cases, +429,152, 2,651,578, confirmed deaths, +7,488, and 67,814,414 confirmed recoveries, +252,788.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,633,697 confirmed cases (same as yesterday), up 126,711 from yesterday’s reporting, 538,918 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), UP 3,160, and 115,379,301 confirmed recoveries (we are freezing our daily adjustments until we see what’s happening tomorrow).[xiii]   It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 210,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States (same as yesterday)- Senile Joe, in another 12 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the frigging ‘VID.
  72. 2021 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,620,894 confirmed cases, 56,351 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 352,614 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Delaware, aka the First State: currently, they have 90,381 confirmed cases, 1,507 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 818,548 confirmed cases, 6,008 confirmed deaths, and 776,099 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Czechia, one half of the former Czechoslovakia: 1,399,078 cases of the old Wuhan Waltz, the Xi Jinping debility: 23,226 confirmed deaths, and 1,209,799 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, why even bother- they’re little more than manufacturers of biowarfare agents and will continue to be until the world takes them to the world court and charges them with the murders of more than 2 million people worldwide. 
  73. 2021 Sunday I: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.837 per gallon, $3.551 in Hawaii, and $3.260 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe, how about allowing fracking to continue as well as the Keystone XL Pipeline?  It would be beneficial for the people of this country.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,051,534,906,670 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  74. 2021 Sunday J: Drew Brees- famed quarterback for the New Orleans Saints for 15 of his 20 years as a pro- announced his retirement today.  The first five years of his career, he spent with San Diego.  Apparently, he cannot tolerate the new Cancel Culture Era of the modern-day National Football League.   Could Colin Kaepernick be coming to New Orleans soon?  Conversely, will they make a trade for Russell Wilson?  We will have to see…
  75. 2022 Monday: Given the way things are going in the world, there could be an update, then again, there might not.  C’est la vie.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

As with any endeavor such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM, we goof up here and there and thus, we backtrack with today’s offering: “Rick Danko,” an album the bassist/vocalist with the band released on May 18, 1977.  We had to search around to find it and find it we did at Discogs, and this album is worthy of purchase by you.  Unlike Levon Helm, Danko penned all the tunes with a lyricist or two and had worthy musicians such as Ron Wood (Faces, Rolling Stones), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), Eric Clapton (guitars), Doug Sahm of the Sir Douglas Quintet on guitars, Joe Lala (percussion, drums), Garth Hudson from the Band, and loads of others.  Some of our colleagues actually owned the vinyl version of this album and what we can tell you is that it’s extremely good.  Danko was a talented musician and vocalist and sung some of the Band’s best tunes such as “Stage Fright.”  We hope you will seek it out wherever you can find it and see if it’s right for you- you will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

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

Today in History, Sunday, March 14, 2021, Blog Post:


[i] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

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

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago- and its various members’ solo careers- sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] Not sure as to when the AICPENDBLOG.COM will promote the music of the Talking Heads but when we do, you will also see the music of Blondie and Aerosmith shared as well.  Please, keep your eyes open for the day this magnificent event occurs. 

[v] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know.  This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members.   Please stay tuned.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We hope to do the music of this icon, Dr. John, so please remain vigilant for when we do.

[viii] No clue as to when we will do the music of Tom Waits.  Stick around long enough and who knows, you might find out.

[ix] Likewise, we expect to offer the music of Alice Cooper sometime between 2025-2027.  Please stay tuned.

[x] Perhaps one day, we will also do the music of Neil Diamond, one of the all-time greatest singer-songwriters.  You will be glad we did as this performer deserves accolades from the entire planet.

[xi] We hope to promote the music of the Atlanta Rhythm Section one day, too.  You will be glad for the day we do.

[xii] Arizona State Attorney General Mark Brnovich is leading the fight against Joe Biden’s immigration ‘rules.’

[xiii] Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.

1954 Friday: In French Indochina, the French Union troops stationed at Dien Bien Phu are aware that enemy activity surrounding their various outlying strongpoints is increasing. The People’s Army is digging approach trenches in the daylight so that when the attack begins tomorrow afternoon, the Viet Minh will be able to approach undercover of their trenches to just outside the barbed wire perimeters. French patrols are encountering more stiffening enemy resistance and a few captured prisoners tell them it’s coming tomorrow.

  70. 2020 Thursday: CPUSA candidate, oh wait, he is running as a Democrat, Sen. Bernie Sanders goes to the mics in Burlington, VT, and does his best to scare the hell out of the American people.  His solution to the Wuhan Virus, aka COVID-19, a gift from China to the rest of the world all because they took it where the sun don’t shine when they signed the U.S.-China trade deal, is for the American people to immediately embrace Marxism as run and defined by him.  Following upon the heels of the NBA canceling its season, the NHL does the same.  Major League Baseball has motioned that spring training could be on the rocks, too, if not the entire season.  What should be clear to ALL is that the LEFT never lets a good crisis go to waste and anything that will enable them to advance socialism and big government even further is in their wheelhouse.  So far, ONLY 39 Americans have succumbed to the Wuhan Virus, most of them in a Washington state nursing home.  If you have ever worked in such a facility, you would understand WHY this tragic statistic is so.  Of course- according to Bernie and his fellow Democrats, the Trump administration is STUPID and incapable of doing anything to thwart the Chinese-transmitted virus.  In the spirit of everything, we encourage the president to postpone the election until ALL is clear.
  71. 2021 Friday: Today is Day 52 of the Biden Regime.  Not good, folks, not good.  Stick around to discover the truth with us.  First, Democrats and liberals are celebrating the AMAZING SPEECH delivered by “Vegetable Joe” Biden last night, a speech in which, he takes full credit for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  Oh, Joe managed to stumble through 23 minutes of a speech- obviously on teleprompter- and managed to walk to and from the speech down the lengthy hall without falling flat on his space.  As Dick Morris told Newsmax TV, ‘Joe Biden is the rooster taking credit for the sunrise.’  Dick’s right.  Never have we seen something so pathetic, so lackluster, so impotent in our lives.  The enemies of our nation must be wondering how they were so lucky to get this feeble, drooling old fool into the White House.  This is not good for the United States. 
  72. 2021 Friday A: Apparently, the accusers of New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo are facing harassment online.  Sounds like something the Goombah Governor would have his flunkies do.  We hope they go to jail, too.  Speaking of “Killer Cuomo,” Democrats in New York such as the “Baby Evita,” aka Alexandria Ocasio, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, and overweight Jerrold Nadler (along with 10 other House Dems)- along with Big Apple Mayor Bill Di Blasio- are all demanding the beleaguered Empire State governor step down, NOW.  Still, “Killer Cuomo” says, ‘I ain’t going nowhere, I have a job to do.’  Listen moron: the longer you fight this, the worse it’s going to be for you.  LEAVE NOW, especially now that yet another accuser has stepped forward. 
  73. 2021 Friday B: As illegal aliens swamp the southern border and as concerned Americans begin gearing up to head to the border to repel the invasion, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says, “Crisis, what crisis?”  The octogenarian speaker never met an illegal alien she didn’t love.  Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says, “the Biden administration must address the crisis on the southern border.”  Wow.  You go, Chuck, you go!   In other crooked Democratic Party news, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez Jr., D-TX 15th congressional district, even as he urged the United States to divest from the People’s Republic of China maintained a Chi-Com bank account of between $100,000 to $250,000.  Typical Democrat, talking out of both sides of his face.  
  74. 2021 Friday C: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the city of Austin, Texas, for refusing to follow Governor Greg Abbot’s order to terminate ALL mask mandates within the Lone Star State.  Austin is like liberal pus-filled sore in an otherwise DEEP RED Texas.  Go get ‘em, AG Paxton!   Elsewhere, the state of Kentucky’s Senate passes a bill that would criminalize taunting of all law enforcement officers.  Excellent.   Next, New York prosecutor Cyrus Vance Jr., the man ‘investigating President Donald J. Trump,’ says he won’t run for another term. 
  75. 2021 Friday D: Following the disastrous interview with Oprah Winfrey, popularity polls show that Mr. and Mrs. Meghan Markle are dropping fast.  Listening to Meghan Markle snivel and whine about the family that took her in and made her one of them is not only disgusting but traitorous.  Their sickening actions should cancel both her and her husband, the Person formerly known as Prince Harry, to undergo CANCELATION for good, IF the Cancel Culture actually pursued losers.  Finally, Geraldo “Al Capone’s Vault” Rivera says he’s NOT going to seek Senator Rob Portman’s seat in November 2022.
  76. 2021 Friday E: The City of Minneapolis settles for $27 million with the family of George Floyd.  Family attorney and race-baiter Benjamin Crump gets up there and continues blasting those who made it possible.  This guy never saw a pot of racial confrontation he did not want to stir.  The autopsy showed that Mr. Floyd was full of drugs and that his body showed no signs of fatal physical injuries as the prosecution alleges fired M. P. D. Officer Derek Chauvin and three other officers caused the low-level thug.  We still believe Keith Ellison- Minnesota’s AG- is going to blow this case and even with 3rd degree murder charges restored to the pantheon of charges upon which, the prosecution hopes to win a conviction.  No, AG Ellison is going to become a goat.     
  77. 2021 Friday F: Former U.S. Green Beret Army Captain Jeffrey MacDonald, age 77, is seeking release from prison on compassionate grounds.  MacDonald has been in prison for more than 40 years now having been convicted of killing his pregnant wife and two daughters on February 17, 1970.  He has sought release before and has always claimed innocence in the matter, stating that a band of violent hippies murdered his family.   No motive has ever been presented of which, we know, but the Army captain received three consecutive life sentences, nevertheless. 
  78. 2021 Friday G: Arizona five-term Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, D-2nd congressional district, announces that she won’t be seeking another term in Congress.   In other news, the Biden administration is holding talks with Israel, discussing Iran and other regional issues.  Speaking of ‘Joe Biden,’ Ric Grenell says the fact that Vice President Kamala Harris is holding talks with world leaders is extremely troubling.   In other Joe Biden news, he wants every American to be eligible for the vaccines President Donald J. Trump created to combat the Chi-Vi by May 01, 2021.  In other news of interest, President Trump’s COVID-19 coordinator (and backstabber) Dr. Deborah Birx, is leaving government service and going to work for a Texas air purifier company.  Good riddance.  
  79. 2021 Friday H: Host of the Summer Olympics, Japan refuses the offer of a Chi-Com offer of a Bat Flu vaccine.  So would we. WHO is stupid enough to take a vaccine from the country that set the pandemic in motion?  WTF?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com-run World Health Organization is investigating the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine following reports of coagulation problems and pulmonary embolisms reported in several European Union countries such as the Netherlands, Austria, Norway, Denmark, and Italy.  We are not advocating anyone take this crap, especially the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that uses fetal tissue harvested from abortions both in its manufacture and its testing.  The Catholic Church even warned Catholics worldwide to avoid this POS vaccine.[ix]
  80. 2021 Friday I: As we continue learning of all the PORK in the $1.9 trillion Chi-Vi relief bill, the more shocking it becomes what with inmates on death row and illegal aliens qualifying for ‘stimulus checks.’  Add to that more than $350 billion to bail out BLUE STATE GOVERNMENTS AND LOCALES and one can see the making of yet another Obama-Biden Era PORKULUS in which, the federal government always had on hand a big slush fund with which to fund their supporters in a perpetual money-go-round all the while the citizens of the country suffer.   Imagine, the mayor of Portland, Oregon, Teddy Wheeler, wants several million so he can rebuild his tattered and abandoned police force.  Still, the bill directs $268 billion to education even as schools in many parts of the country refuse to reopen.  Additional hundreds of millions of dollars will flow to Planned Parenthood, to Obamacare exchanges, and to every other left-wing liberal load of hooey Democrats love. 
  81. 2021 Friday J: CNN’s ratings continue to collapse sans President Donald J. Trump in the White House and after seeing porcine loser Brian Stelter sitting in his skivvies with his laptop’s camera lens focused on his crotch area while he does the news, NO wonder.  Did we see him sitting in his drawers either before or after ‘pulling a Toobin?’[x]  What is it with these sick left-wing losers?  Put your pants on you pudgy pig.
  82. 2021 Friday K: Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, and Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, say that Joe Biden and ONLY Joe Biden bears complete responsibility for the disaster befalling our southern border and Customs and Border Patrol officers fighting to stem the massive tide of illegals seeking to invade the country.    In other news, the Quadrilateral Nations- aka ‘Quad Nations (United States, Japan, India, and Australia)- are meeting to discuss countermeasures against the Chi-Coms who are becoming a REGIONAL adversary in the Indo-Pacific Region.
  83. 2021 Friday L: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 118,742,439 confirmed cases, +623,106, 2,632,364, confirmed deaths, +10,420, and 67,253,779 confirmed recoveries, +326,819.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,509,986 confirmed cases, up 41,225 from yesterday’s reporting, 535,758 confirmed deaths, UP 1,012, and 115,036,827 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.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 207,281 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  84. 2021 Friday M: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,614,568 confirmed cases, 55,138 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases (DOWN from yesterday’s number), 448 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 350,661 confirmed cases, 5,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Montana, aka the Big Sky or Treasure State: currently, they have 101,561 confirmed cases, 1,392 confirmed deaths, and 99,213 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 814,250 confirmed cases, 5,967 confirmed deaths, and 773,545 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Indonesia, the largest Muslim-majority nation on Earth: 1,410,134 cases of the old Hubei Hooey, 38,229 confirmed deaths, and 1,231,254 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, how about their numbers: 90,002 confirmed cases (our sources in Hong Kong say multiply everything by 75,000-percent and add the numbers for a total of 71,358,428 confirmed cases, 3,724,401 confirmed deaths, and 65,835,291 confirmed recoveries- and remember- these are still low-end numbers.  Estimates, of course, because communist nations ALWAYS lie…
  85. 2021 Friday N: Bob Sellers on Newsmax reports consumer confidence is at its highest point since before the Xi Jinping Bat Flu swept across the world.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,778.64, UP 293.05 points (+0.90%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,319.86, DOWN 78.808 points (-0.59%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,943.34, UP 4.00 points (+0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,725.80 per troy oz., +6.00 (+0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.01 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.38%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.50 per troy oz, +8.20 (+0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.16 per pound, +0.02 (+0.41%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,376.00 per troy oz, +20.50 (+0.87%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.56 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.08%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.73.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Argentine Peso, one greenback equals 90.78.  NOTE- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.801 per gallon, $3.536 in Hawaii, and $3.235 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe.
  86. 2021 Friday O: New York’s junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has joined the chorus demanding that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo step down, that he is no longer fit to do the job and must go.  Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer, senior New York senator and Senate majority leader also is saying, “ENOUGH!  It’s time to go!”  Of course, NO one gives a hoot about the 15,000 to 20,000 New Yorkers the old thug governor consigned to their deaths when he returned COVID-19-infected patients back into the nursing homes where they infected others.  Then, when they were on the verge of death, Cuomo had them returned to the hospitals so their deaths would fall atop the hospitals and not on the nursing homes.  Cuomo was in effect trying to cover up the deaths that he himself caused.  This guy needs to visit Old Sparky. 
  87. 2021 Friday P: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1641 with a $79 million jackpot on the line.  Remember- YOU must buy your tickets NO LATER than 7:45 P.M. PST.
  88. 2021 Friday Q: In a speech to the U.N. Human Rights Council, U.S. Charge d’ Affaires Mark Cassayre blasted the Chi-Coms for their horrid human rights abuses and genocide of the Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang Province, China.  He also lit them up on the crackdown on the free people of Hong Kong.  Of course, the Chi-Coms and the other Third World thugs on the ‘Council’ were outraged.  Who cares?  Speaking of communist thugs, Vladimir Putin had his number one critic, Alexei Navalny, removed from a prison near Moscow and taken to a black site somewhere in Russia.  His lawyer has no clue where the jack-booted Putin thugs took him.  We know the poor guy is serving a 2.5-year sentence for ‘parole violations,’ this after the Putin regime tried to murder the man with Novichok, a Soviet-era poison. 
  89. 2021 Friday R: Questions continue arising over the recent Joe Biden-authored airstrike on Syria as well as the previous one back in 2018 when President Donald J. Trump was in the White House.  President Trump wanted to pull the U.S. out of needless wars whereas ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden clearly is a deep part of the industrial-military-political complex putting our country at risk.  Syria is indeed a sovereign country, and we have no business attacking them, yet the warmongers behave as though they are the guiding lights of the Roman Empire, fighting perpetual wars, weakening the country by expending countless lives, wealth, and time when the United States should be continuing what President Trump wanted to do and that was to make America great again.  You DON’T see the Chi-Coms wasting blood and treasure to fight bogus wars, no, they are waiting for the day when their nation collides with ours and it’s not going to go well when they do.
  90. 2021 Friday S: The African nation of Nigeria is under assault again, once again by ‘bandits,’ meaning Boko Haram, Islamist thugs.  The so-called ‘armed bandits’ assaulted another town and its school in northwestern Nigeria kidnapping at least 30 students and several staff members carrying them off into the jungle.  The Nigerian government just spent loads of money to get 180 students kidnapped a week or so ago back from the jihadists.   These very same scumbags kidnapped 279 schoolgirls from their school last month.  Sounds like there should be a concerted effort by West African nations to eradicate this scum and to bury their dead bodies with pigs’ blood all over them.
  91. 2021 Friday T: Attacks against Asian Americans continue in heavily Democratic areas around the country, attacks decried by a mumbling, stumbling old Joe Biden last night in his PRIME-TIME ADDRESS.  We have a theory- we believe the Democrats are paying low-economic black Americans to go out and commit these attacks- we have seen film on various news channels and it’s NOT white Americans committing these attacks- so they can then scream and cry about the ‘heinous attacks on our poor Asian-American fellow citizens.’  Look, when you have a party that infiltrates Trump supporters and then engineers an ‘insurrection’ on the nation’s capital, these scumbags will stoop to any low and this would surprise NONE of us.
  92. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

Prior to the Band tossing in the towel, they decided to do a farewell concert, one filmed by Martin Scorsese, on Thanksgiving Day 1976 at Bill Graham’s fabled Winterland Ballroom.  It was a celebration of the Band’s music for 5,000 of their closest friends with numerous guest appearances by a who’s who of amazing musicians at the time.  The album featured three discs of the greatest music ever performed as well as a subsequent film which swept across the country.  Everyone is on this record from Dr. John- the Night Tripper, aka Mac Rebennack, Paul Butterfield, Eric Clapton, Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Dylan, Ringo Starr, Ronnie Wood, Joni Mitchell, Muddy Waters, and loads of others.  One must see the music which means you have to get both the film and the three-disc box set to enjoy the entire celebration of the Band’s music.  There’s also the Staple Singers, Emmylou Harris, Neil Young, you name it, they’re here, so we hope you will seek it out, add it to your ever-growing collection.  You will be glad you did.

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

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We are unclear as to when we will offer the music of Badfinger, seeing as how we should have promoted them during the lengthy presentation of the Beatles and the band’s various members.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do as this band was among the greats.

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

[iii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.  Hell, we might also do the music of the group’s sisters, too.

[iv] We shared the music of the famed Los Angeles, California, psychedelic rock band, Love, beginning on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  We hope you will check them out as they deserve to be heard.  The debut album occurred on the first day of the presentation.

[v] We began promoting the music of the Beatles and the band’s original members, beginning on Friday, 04-November-2016 which ran through Sunday, 11-June-2017. You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

[vi] 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.

[vii] 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.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[ix]. We believe the World Health Organization will do what their masters in Beijing direct them to do and that will be to promote the Chi-Com ‘VID vaccine over everyone else’s.  Like we said, we are avoiding the vaccine like facial herpes.

[x] Disgraced newsman Jeffrey Toobin was fired for being caught on a Zoom work call spanking the old wank.  Sick f**k.

ELECTION DAY IS COMING AND IT’S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

43. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2022

2021 Friday E: In a fit of outrage, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi forbids Representative Claudia Tenney, Republican- who just won NY-22 House race by 109 votes- from having her family present at her swearing in on Capitol Hill. Congresswoman Tenney’s son, a recent graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy and in uniform was deemed a “RISK” by the senile head of the House. What a national embarrassment.

  53. 1993 Friday: In Liverpool, England, two 10-year-old boys lured a 2-year-old boy, James Bulger, away from his mother while the couple was at a shopping mall.  For some unknown reason, the two monsters beat him to death outside the mall.

  60. 2004 Thursday: San Francisco begins issuing marriage licenses to homosexual customers.  Meanwhile, Mattel announced that “Barbie” and “Ken” were breaking up.  The dolls had ‘met’ on the set of their first television commercial together in 1961.
  61. 2008 Tuesday: The race for the White House continues.  Illinois Senator Barack Obama wins the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia Democratic primaries which puts him in the lead over his closest rival, New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.  On the other side of the coin, Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, wins the GOP nominations in the same chunks of real estate.  Republicans are not thrilled with Senator McCain; it is what it is.  Elsewhere, Russia and the Ukraine settle a dispute over the debt owed by the latter to the former.  The Ukraine owes money to Gazprom for deliveries of natural gas.
  62. 2011 Saturday: Anti-government protesters in Yemen call for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down from power; he ruled the country since 1978.
  63. 2012 Sunday: At the Grammy Awards, Adele[viii], a British singer, wins awards for the Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year.  Meanwhile, the Greek people go berserk as the government okays austerity measures.  Portugal is having similar problems with 300,000 people taking to the streets in protest against their government.
  64. 2013 Tuesday: North Korea[ix] conducted its third underground nuclear test—the world needs to nuke these crazy bastards into submission!
  65. 2014 Wednesday: Twenty-eight years after Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos was ousted, the Philippine government recovers $29 million from Swiss accounts, bringing the total Marcos’ secret accounts now recovered and in government hands to $712 million.  Meanwhile, Syrian government forces and their Hezbollah allies link up to launch an assault on the ISIS-held Yabrud.
  66. 2015 Thursday: Ukraine and Russia negotiate a ceasefire with the support of Germany[x] and France; the agreement calls for an end to fighting, removal of large artillery from the sites of conflict, and greater independence for eastern Ukraine.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate confirms Ashton Carter as the 25th U.S. Secretary of Defense.
  67. 2016 Friday: To the delight of climate change scammers everywhere, Fiji becomes the first nation to ratify the UN climate deal[xi], the one signed in Paris in December 2015.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry announces that following a meeting of 17 foreign ministers from around the world in Munich, a ceasefire in Syria would be declared in one week, following the delivery of humanitarian supplies to the refugees huddling along the border with Turkey.
  68. 2017 Sunday: In Northern California, residents living around the Oroville Dam- 180,000- are ordered to immediately get the hell out as overflow from the spillways due to humongous rainfall threatens its stability and a possible collapse.  Thankfully, the dam withstood the torrent of water.  Elsewhere, the North Koreans fire an intercontinental ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan.  Of course, this causes alarm around the region.
  69. 2018 Monday:  Following widespread charges of allegations of sexual misconduct in Haiti and Chad, Oxfam deputy director Penny Laine Lawrence resigns the post of the British charity.  She apologizes profusely.  Great.  Tell it to the victims.  Meanwhile, trying to get things going, President Donald J. Trump sends his $4.4 trillion federal budget proposal for 2019 to the U.S. Congress.  Meanwhile, the president meets with several governors and big city mayors so he can lay out his $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill to get the American people back to work and to repair and improve the crumbling infrastructure of the nation.
  70. 2019 Tuesday: After 200 hours of testimony in a federal courtroom, a jury finds Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman guilty of all 10 federal crimes with which, they charged him.  Meanwhile, after a lengthy dispute with Greece, Macedonia changes its name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia.   Elsewhere, much to the delight of Democrats in the United States, Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro tells a BBC reporter that U.S. President Donald J. Trump is a white supremacist who is actively ‘warmongering’ against his country and says that the “Ku Klux Klan is running the White House.”  Now where could this ignorant POS have gotten these comments?  The Democratic Party and their allies in the Fake News Media?  We’d lay our money on this!
  71. 2020 Wednesday: As the coronavirus outbreak continues to worsen around the planet, Tonga forbids four cruise ships from docking while in Cambodia, the government there says it’s okay for the MS Westerdam to disembark more than 2,000 after several other nations in the region turned the cruise ship away.  Elsewhere, all manner of other nations are canceling all manner of events and happenings out of fear of the rapidly spreading Wuhan Flu.    Elsewhere, Democratic 2020 presidential candidate and former governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick suspends his brief campaign. 
  72. 2021 Friday:  Day 24 of the Biden Regime: the border policies of the Biden administration (or lack of them, we should say) are coming under increased fire as hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are flowing north through Mexico and attempting to storm the southern border.  NO one is checking the dregs of the Third World for the infamous Chi-Vi.  Good going, ‘Usurper Joe!’  Speaking of the Biden regime, his family is coming under increased fire from people on all side of the aisle over his claims that family members will have no place within his administration when in fact, they are enriching themselves like gorging leeches on a floundering swimmer in the Amazon River.  Speaking of Joe Biden, he is attempting to blame his predecessor for his inability to roll out vaccines with which to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  You go, Joe, you go!  Finally, Joe Biden announces he is going to permit in 25,000 refugees immediately (among whom we suspect will be foreign intelligence agents seeking to target U.S. citizens opposing their countries).   Joe Biden also cuts off all emergency funding for the southern border wall.
  73. 2021 Friday A: Speaking of the Biden administration, a now capsizing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, D-NY, is deflecting criticism of his murder of the ill, the infirm, the disabled, and the mentally ill in rest homes onto the back of the Biden crew.  Wow.  How quickly the maggots turn!  Speaking of New York Democrats, Dems across the state are being hammered with the tragic loss of life their inept at best and criminal at worst policies have done to the citizens of the Empire State.  Regarding the Chinese Virus, more than 8 million Americans slipped into poverty in the second half of last year thanks to the Wuhan Flu.  “Pro-China Joe” said he had a plan- where is the plan, Joe?
  74. 2021 Friday B: The Trump defense team is blasting major holes in the House managers’ flawed arguments showing film clips the Democrats edited to make Trump appear a criminal by showing the films in their entirety as well as innumerable clips of Democrats talking about violence, threatening violence, joking about violence (man, Kamala’s laugh is worse than Hillary’s and that is pretty bad, folks), and guaranteeing violence.  Republicans have met with the defense team in preparation for the devastation coming the way of the Democrats in the U.S. Senate today.  We contend it’s going to be extremely difficult for the RINOs to vote to convict ex-President Trump just as it will for several Democrats whose allegiance is to the Constitution of the United States and not to Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.
  75. 2021 Friday C: The People’s Republic of China bans BBC World News from within its borders.  We thought you had nothing to hide, Chairman Xi?   Meanwhile, Russia threatens to cut off ties with the European Union if they impose any additional economic sanctions upon the country over the arrest of Alexei Navalny and protesters favorable to him.  That means natural gas supplies you get from the Russkies could be terminated.  You probably miss Donald J. Trump by now, don’t you?  Elsewhere, New Zealand announces plans to roll out vaccines for the Chi-Vi beginning next week.  Finally, we learn today that the Biden regime’s energy policies favor foreign nations over the country he was supposedly elected to lead.  First, loss of high-paying energy jobs to Canada and to China.  Second, energy independence is thrown out the window in favor of importing oil from OPEC, Russia, Venezuela, and other places inimical to U.S. interests.  Third and final, stifling U.S. energy production benefits Chairman Xi, Vladimir Putin, the Grand Ayatollah, Burisma, and Nicolas Maduro.  Good going, Joe.  Finally, “Pro-China Joe” is being blasted for repealing a Trump executive order that prohibited purchase of and installation of foreign energy equipment in the American power grid.
  76. 2021 Friday D: Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Democrat, signals she will oppose the Biden administration’s demand for a $15 per hour minimum wage.  Meanwhile, in New Hampshire, a hand recount shows that in the 7th congressional district, a place in which, DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS MACHINES AND SMARTMATIC SOFTWARE WAS EMPLOYED, an average of 300 votes was deducted from every statewide or national Republican candidate and flipped to the Democrats.  Yet, both of these disingenuous companies- Dominion and Smartmatic- swear there’s ‘nothing to see here.’  The entire 2020 election cycle is (ALLEGEDLY) marred by these two crap companies and their Democrat bosses.    Elsewhere, the North Dakota Senate is considering a bill that prohibits trannys from participating in scholastic sports.  (Note- Chef Elmer on Monday is going to make an argument that a third category of school sports should be created- Transsexual Sports.  This would make both boys and girls competing in sports happy and it would acknowledge the greater increase of students who are confused about their sexual identity and who can then compete with one another fairly).
  77. 2021 Friday E: In a fit of outrage, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi forbids Representative Claudia Tenney, Republican- who just won NY-22 House race by 109 votes- from having her family present at her swearing in on Capitol Hill.  Congresswoman Tenney’s son, a recent graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy and in uniform was deemed a “RISK” by the senile head of the House.  What a national embarrassment.  The Speaker has National Guard units all over Washington, D.C., and yet, she won’t permit a uniformed member from entering the House?  What a disgrace.  Next, a House committee plans to give U.S. airlines $14 billion in COVID-19 relief aid.  Meanwhile, dating app Bumble surges in its IPO in its first day of trading.  Elsewhere, L’Oréal sales shoot up to hit $95 billion in Q4 2020 due to a 62-percent spike in online sales.  Sales in the People’s Republic of (Communist) China saw an increase of 27-percent.  Finally, a judge declines to issue both a new warrant and a jacked-up bail amount for patriot Kyle Rittenhouse, accused of murdering two Antifa thugs who were trying to murder him.  A clear case of SELF DEFENSE.  
  78. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 108,043,938 confirmed cases, +538,271, 2,377,988, confirmed deaths, +20,513, and 60,504,739 confirmed recoveries, +368,271.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,716,018 confirmed cases, up 176,801 from yesterday’s reporting, 483,695 confirmed deaths, UP 10,472, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 24 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 154,300 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  79. 2021 Friday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,460,320 confirmed cases, 46,002 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,370 confirmed cases, 425 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 329,170 confirmed cases, 4,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: New Jersey- currently, they have 740,016 confirmed cases, 22,393 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 718,746 confirmed cases, 5,304 confirmed deaths, and 651,522 confirmed recoveries.     
  80. 2021 Friday H: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,748 cases, +14 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,292 confirmed recoveries, +825 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Rodent-eating scum. 
  81. 2021 Friday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,458.40, UP 27.70 points (+0.88%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,095.47, UP 69.70 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,934.83, UP 18.45 points (+0.47%). We reiterate what we mentioned last week: markets are UP because they believe ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden is going to borrow TRILLIONS from the Chi-Coms.  We still predict that by June 2021, the triple whammy of a $15 minimum wage, ongoing pandemic politics, skyrocketing energy and food prices, and massive illegal aliens numbers are going to tank the economy worse than 1929.  Bad economic times are on the horizon because the economy cannot handle multiple hits of Chi-Vi, a jacked-up minimum wage that is going to cost American workers jobs while allowing employers to hire ILLEGAL ALIENS under the table and providing them NO Obamacare.  It is going to be extremely ugly, and we have a ‘president’ sitting around spanking the Toobin in the White House.
  82. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,823.20 per troy oz., -3.60 (-0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $27.33 per troy ounce, +0.28 (+1.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.38 per troy oz, +18.70 (+1.51%) while the price of COPPER is $3.80 per pound, +0.01 (+0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,393.00 per troy oz, +39.50 (+1.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.73 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.44%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.52 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.
  83. 2021 Friday K: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Drawing #1633: 05, 14, 24, 25, 27, and Mega 14.  Out of 74,680 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $2,881,341.
  84. 2021 Friday L: Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says she ‘hopes that Joe Biden understands that the Chi-Coms are not our friends.’  This after “Pro-China Joe” schmoozed with Xi Jinping on the Chi-Coms earlier in the week, reportedly for two hours.  Who believes this?   Next, Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that in regard to the bogus impeachment trial occurring in the U.S. Senate, i.e., the Stalinist Show Trial Extraordinaire, “Trump’s lawyers have won.”  We concur.   Trump’s lawyers are rating higher performance marks today as their video presentation blew the Democrats’ highly produced and doctored video clips- provided to them by ANTIFA, no less, look like the steaming pile of fecal matter that it is.  We expect many of these Democrats are going to lose their seats in next year’s Mid-Term Elections.  We will work to make it so.
  85. 2021 Friday M: Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, his State Department has scheduled a ‘racism is America’s number one national security threat.’  For God’s sake, because when things get better and people are moving on, you pull us all back into the cesspool and dirty everyone, black, white, brown, red, yellow, and every shade in between.  Stop it already!  Elsewhere, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece tells him that ‘governors and mayors need $350 billion in Xi Jinping Bat Flu relief’ as without it, dimwits such as Gavin Newsom, Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Larry Hogan, and other Democrat and RINO putzes will go under and probably see their states flip from BLUE to RED.  Finally, Jen Psaki says she suspended an aide for ‘one-week sans pay’ for having told an inquiring White House reporter asking about his relationship with a fellow journalist.  Apparently, aide T. J. Ducklo told the female reporter, “I will destroy you for asking this question.”  When Psaki was asked whether the president knew about it or not, she said, “NO.  I acted on my own.”  Joe Biden did say anyone belittling anyone in his administration would ‘be fired on the spot’ in a very Donald Trump-like moment.
  86. 2021 Friday N: Another Lincoln Project founder bites the dust: Steve Schmidt.  All of these guys have problems and character flaws, covering up for pervert John Weaver who has been sleeping with 14-year-old boys.  What the hell is wrong with these RINO sickos?  More to come on this story, folks.  We learn that $50 million of the $90 million received by these scumbags went to businesses associated with said scumbags.  Once again, we have another self-enrichment scheme and lawsuits are piling up, soon to hit this bogus group of disgruntled losers.  Wow.  What will be the next shoe to drop?  George Conway?  
  87. 2021 Friday O: New York Attorney General Leticia James calls for a dismissal of the National Rifle Association’s Chapter 11 Bankruptcy claiming it’s in “bad faith.”  Meanwhile, strong defender of free and fair elections, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton finds himself smeared with allegations of ‘trading favors in exchange for a home remodel and a job for his mistress.’  Sounds like something Democrats do.  Moving on, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax a couple of things: first, the Trump impeachment trial is little more than a ‘joke.’  Next- and we have been expecting this although not as early as it’s come- Nikki Haley slams Trump, belittles him and says he’s not the ‘leader of the party.’  To this, Mr. Grenell dismisses her comments as nothing and says, ‘Trump is indeed the leader of the party.’  We expect that she- like other RINOs- will vie for the 2024 nomination of the GOP, expecting that once again, Republicans having no alternative will vote for ‘the lesser of two evils.’  Not so.  No more.  Nikki, find out at your own risk.
  88. 2021 Friday P: The World Health Organization now is backing away from its absolute denial of the Wuhan Virus coming out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  We guess they are feeling the heat.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms’ malign influence, Disney (NO one should see the movie, “Mulan”) is remaining mum on the growing news of systemic rapes of Uighur Muslim women in the ‘paradise province’ of Xinjiang, western China, a place where every manufacturer lacking a conscience has slave labor making their products.  This is where Disney filmed “Mulan.”  The NBA, yep, they are total scum, and we are big proponents of the National Basketball Association relocating their entire operation to communist China, seeing as how they love the Chi-Coms as much as they do.  
  89. 2021 Friday Q: Elsewhere, things continue going from bad to worse for New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Can we expect to see this POS in an orange jumpsuit anytime soon?  Speaking of the notorious Beijing Bug sweeping the world, California is trying to correct its myriad mistakes and is begging for vaccines to arrive in the state.  Governor Gavin Newsom is such an inept fool (he’s Nancy Pelosi’s beloved nephew) that there is nothing he can do to save himself.  Instead of putting $4 billion into vaccine procurement, he’s putting it into the money-laundering California High-Speed Rail boondoggle.  WTF?
  90. 2022 Saturday: ¿Qué locuras pueden ocurrir hoy?  Quédate y descúbrelo con el resto de nosotros.  Nadie sabe lo que esta administración presidencial está arruinando hoy…

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

Friday, February 12, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

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

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


Saturday, February 12, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012.  We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

[ii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iv] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[vii] 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.  Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too.  Perhaps one day we will.

[viii] Present the music of Adele one day?  If we are still around in 15-20 years, we just might.

[ix] God created the neutron bomb for wiping out maggots like these scum.  President Trump: LIGHT THEM UP!

[x] Does anyone ever question WHY Germany has become Russia’s bitch?

[xi] Climate change is a hoax, the way the Democrats and liberals around the world present it.  The climate is always changing but the solar activity- abundance or lack of sunspots and solar flares- is the driving force and it changes the climate on every planet in our Solar System.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

¡Tienes que irte, maldito Joe!

Trump’s Executive Order 13769, an order prohibiting travelers coming in from seven Muslim predominant nations into the U.S. takes effect.  A judge will soon halt it.   Meanwhile, Iran- one of the countries on the banned list- says it will take reciprocal action against the United States.  After what they’ve done to us, who the f**k would want to go there.

  72. 2021 Thursday: DAY NINE OF THE BIDEN REGIME- after Rush Limbaugh says that Joe Biden is the ‘third term of Barack Obama,’ the 46th president- after signing his umpteenth executive order- admits as much.  He says he is reinstituting the Obama agenda and that it is what it is.  Next, CPAC- Conservative Political Action Committee- and the ACU- American Conservative Union slam Politico for trying to strip them of their financial backers.  Meanwhile, Bill O’Reilly tells Newsmax that the Democratic Party’s goal is to break capitalism for good.   Elsewhere, RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that the GOP is going to remain NEUTRAL in 2024 GOP primary battles.  Of course, Dems say this is going to anger Donald Trump.  Sure.  Uh huh.  They MUST remain neutral; McDaniel cannot behave as Donna Brazile did in 2016 when she favored Hillary Rodham Clinton over Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley.
  73. 2021 Thursday A:  In COVID-19 news, the widow of Larry King says her husband did not succumb to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Next, states are lifting their coronavirus restrictions gradually due to the new variant from South Africa showing up in North Carolina with two cases.   Meanwhile, Virginia U.S. Mark Warner, Democrat, is observing COVID-19 quarantine protocols after being exposed to the disease.  Elsewhere, New York state Attorney General Leticia James is blasting Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo over covering up the number of deaths that occurred in the Empire State’s nursing homes, places where he sent COVID-19-infected patients to recuperate.  She says the governor had approximately 50-percent of the deaths while all the while blaming the federal government and doing chest-thumping by authoring a book that made him out to be a hero.  Bon voyage, Governor “Killer” Cuomo.
  74. 2021 Thursday B: A recent poll says that a majority of Americans support first trimester abortion which begs the question as to WHY the Pro-Death movement demands abortions up to delivery and immediately after?  Answer: they profit off the sale of fetal body parts.  Evil.   Meanwhile, a McLaughlin poll says that Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, Republican, has just 13-percent support for her to seek another term and a 62-percent disapproval rate.  Due to her voting to impeach Donald Trump a second time, GOP support for the out-of-touch congresswoman and GOP House leader has hit rock bottom.  Speaking of which, Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz is going to host a massive Trump rally in the Equality State which is going to further strip her of any hope of re-election.   Elsewhere, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy- who is visiting with Donald Trump in Florida today- has begged his caucus to stop with the infighting.  Kevin, you need to wake up and slap your left-leaning RINO goobers back into line.  Do what Mitch does, moisten your finger, and hold it up high enough to feel which way the wind is blowing.
  75. 2021 Thursday C: President Joe Biden’s promised illegal alien family reunification task force has hit some hurdles and is temporarily delayed.  Next, we are told the Biden administration is following Trump’s lead in staying tough on communist China’s global expansionism plans.  You and Barack could have stopped the militarization of the South China Sea back in your second term and yet, you failed to do this.  Why?   Moving on, Joe Biden signs yet another executive order ending all new fracking permits on public lands which is going to kill thousands more jobs.  Speaking of the elimination of American jobs, Climate Adviser Gina McCarthy says ‘we’re not asking the American people for sacrifices with job losses, it’s just we must save the planet from its crisis.  Thus, millions of jobs- high-paying jobs, no less- are being stripped away in order to keep the American people dependent upon government for their sustenance.
  76. 2021 Thursday D: Speaking of lost jobs, although down from jobless claims of 914,000 the week before, first-time jobless claims are still high at 847,000.  Economists are celebrating that it’s less than last week but folks, as Joe Biden continues rampaging through his executive orders, millions more will be seeking unemployment in the subsequent weeks.  Meanwhile, 4th quarter GDP shows an annual rate of around 4-percent.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, following the ‘little guys’ showing up the BIG GUYS on the stock market what with billions going to virtual day traders who bet big on AMC, GameStop, and Blackberry, TD Ameritrade, Schwab, and Robin Hood have banned any additional trades from the ‘little guys.’  Is that the “American Way?”  WTF? 
  77. 2021 Thursday E: Russia reports that Alexei Navalny will remain in a Russian jail until his upcoming trial occurs.   Meanwhile, a Pakistani court orders the killer of journalist Daniel Pearl freed from prison.  Elsewhere, Reuters reports that Proud Boys leader Henry “Enrique” Tarrio has been a high-level FBI informant.  There goes his life.   Next, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says ‘Joe Biden’s immigration policies are causing ‘real problems’ for the country.  Florida Republican Senator Rick Scott wants to know from President Biden exactly what those policies are, how they will be enforced, and any potential damage. 
  78. 2021 Thursday F: It appears the FBI- now under the control of Joe Biden- is going after conservative citizen pundits and journalists.  Yesterday, Douglass Mackey of Florida was arrested by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation for being little more than an alleged ‘Twitter troll.’  This is crazy.  What’s even crazier is that he was arrested for memes he made in 2016 so four years later- and with a change in the White House- the FBI has gone out and arrested him.  Why?  Meanwhile, in other craziness, the San Francisco school system is spending between $400,000-to-$1,000,000 to rename 44 public schools because of them being named for American presidents and historical figures all of whom have fallen into disfavor in the modern-day Cancel Culture.  Would the money not be better spent getting young people back to school rather than through stupid attempts at indoctrinating a vulnerable population? 
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 101,211,750 confirmed cases, +627,195, 2,183,269, confirmed deaths, +16,870, and 55,917,570 confirmed recoveries, +318,463.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,941,957 confirmed cases, up 172,233 from yesterday’s reporting, 435,432 confirmed deaths, UP 4,110, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as yesterday’s.  NOTE- in the White House NINE DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,252,716 confirmed cases, 38,961 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,903 confirmed cases, 404 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 309,604 confirmed cases, 4,294 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Guam: currently, they have 8,537 confirmed cases, 130 confirmed deaths, and 6,707 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 621,590 confirmed cases, 4,605 confirmed deaths, and 545,342 confirmed recoveries.  
  81. 2021 Thursday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,603.36, UP 300.19 points (+0.99%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,337.16, UP 66.56 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,787.38, UP 36.61 points (+0.98%).  The price of GOLD is $1,841.80 per troy oz., +3.90 (+0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $26.60 per troy ounce, +0.678 (+2.62%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,080.20 per troy oz, +7.80 (+0.73%) while the price of COPPER is $3.57 per pound, -0.0035 (-0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,310.50 per troy oz, -14.50 (-0.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.09 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.48%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.21.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000030 Bitcoin (BTC).
  82. 2021 Thursday J: The Department of Homeland Security continues warning of DOMESTIC TERRORISM which tells us they know something is coming around February 08 because they or their superiors in the Biden administration already have their agent provocateurs ready to go in new FALSE FLAG operations with which to crackdown on the American people even more.   The American people MUST BE VIGILANT for what the administration is going to loose on us.  Meanwhile, President Biden signs another executive order giving the Chi-Coms greater access to the U.S. electric grid.  NOT GOOD.  Next, as the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill continues hitting roadblocks, President Biden is calling Republican senators to get them on his side.  WHY?  He’s adding $4 trillion in additional debt to what we already have.  Where’s the money originating?  Communist China?  You better believe it.  Elsewhere, the Pentagon is evaluating FEMA’s request for military aid in increasing the rollout of Chi-Vi vaccines. 
  83. 2021 Thursday K: A few days after announcing her bid for the governorship of Arkansas, Sarah Huckabee Sanders has raised $1 million.   That’s what happens when Donald Trump endorses you.  Next, after meeting with Mr. Trump in Florida, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says the former president is onboard with retaking the House in 2022.  Speaking of Mr. Trump, a recent McLaughlin poll says that ‘canceling Trump’ is backfiring on those trying to enact it.  Elsewhere, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and her chosen girl, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are fearful of their fellow House members.  Mumbles is seeking security funds so Democrats will feel ‘protected.’  What a bunch of losers.  False flag after false flag after false flag.   Meanwhile, in Wyoming at a huge pro-Trump rally, Florida Congresswoman Matt Gaetz rips into fellow Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney.
  84. 2021 Thursday L: UN Secretary General Guterres calls for a “U.S.-People’s Republic of China reset.”   Meanwhile, as President Joe Biden continues scribbling executive orders, one of the ones today overturns the Mexico City Policy forbidding U.S. taxpayer dollars funding FOREIGN BABY CHOP SHOPS.  And this man claims to be a Catholic!  There was a time when popes excommunicated kings, where the hell is Pope Francis?   Next, the White House and Dems nix the GOP idea to break down the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus Bill.  Sad.   Elsewhere, Senator Martha Blackburn, R-TN, accuses Joe Biden’s EPA nominee Michael Regan of having committed crimes.   Finally, Rush Limbaugh says the ‘GameStop issue is proof of everything being rigged for the elites in America.’
  85. 2021 Thursday M: Senator Dick Durbin, D-IL, throws ‘icy water’ on fellow Democratic Senator Tim Kaine’s idea of seeking censure for former President Donald J. Trump rather than moving ahead with a bogus second impeachment.   Elsewhere, a federal judge refuses bail for a so-called ‘QAnon shaman,’ aka ‘the horned guy’ (Jake Angeli) who sat in Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s seat in the U.S. House of Representatives on January 6, 2021, during the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots.  Meanwhile, tomorrow is the March for Live- Virtual- in troop-infested Washington, D.C.  Speaking of the U.S. Military (whom we love), the Pentagon says the Taliban is not living up to their promises in the Afghan peace process which means the U.S. will be in that war torn country for at least another four years.  Incredibly sad.  Finally, BIG OIL is seeking an alliance with Biofuels bigwigs as a means of preventing the Biden administration crushing them for good.
  86. 2021 Thursday N: As chef-author Bea O’Malley wrote in three posts between January 15-to-January 17, 2021, a couple of weeks ago, with the feeble Joe Biden administration in office, the Chi-Coms are upping the number of incursions into Taiwanese airspace because Beijing knows ‘Chi-Com Joe’ won’t come to the aid of Taipei.  The Biden administration claims they will defend Japan’s outer islands, but we suspect that is a load of hooey, too.  Everyone in Asia- you are on your own.  Yes, times have changed without Trump in office.  Likewise, we expect Russia and Iran to start causing trouble in their neck of the woods soon.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album delivered by Fairport Convention was a ‘blast from the past,’ culled by an archivist: “Cropredy ‘08” (March 22, 2009), an album of live music from the band’s Cropredy 2008 show.  The lineup features the ongoing quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  It is amazing- and extremely enjoyable- to envision each of these performances with your mind and ears.  We love it, we know you will love it, too, and you can find it at almost every site specializing in classic rock/folk rock music such as Amazon, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, you name it, it’s available.  We hope you do check it out as we believe you will love this band as much as we do.  Enjoy.

19. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 19, 2022, UPDATE A:

Robert E. Lee’s Birthday in Florida; Confederate Heroes Day in Texas; Happy Birthday, Chef Vicky!

It appears President Joseph R. Biden’s agenda is dead, dead, buried, and gone.  Momentous changes coming in November…

  1.  2022 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 338,949,576 confirmed cases, +4,020,742, 5,582,430 confirmed deaths, +9,718 and 272,626,440 confirmed recoveries, +1,993,745. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 69,582,430 confirmed cases, UP 955,141 from yesterday’s reporting, 880,160 confirmed deaths, UP +3,003,[i] and 43,700,835 confirmed recoveries, UP 405,955. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 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 430,876 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the 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 68,504 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 364 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 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: 7,037,467 confirmed cases, 78,275 confirmed deaths, and 6,959,192 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,244,209 confirmed cases, 63,458 confirmed deaths, and 3,662,938 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 184,767 confirmed cases, 1,126 confirmed deaths, and 183,641 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,110,406 confirmed cases, 10,317 confirmed deaths, and 351,274 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., North Carolina: they have 2,147,777 confirmed cases, 20,037 confirmed deaths, and 1,748,088 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 2,035,432 confirmed cases, 8,362 confirmed deaths, and 1,530,716 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Angola, 120th country on the list: 94,779 cases of the virus, 1,887 confirmed death and 85,603 confirmed recoveries.[iv]           
  5. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,028.65, DOWN 339.82 points (-0.96%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,340.25 DOWN 166.64 points (-1.15%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,532.76, DOWN 44.35 points (-0.97%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $86.14 per barrel, +0.71 (+0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,838.90 per troy oz., +26.50 (+1.46%) while the price of SILVER is $24.15 per troy ounce, +0.66 (+2.80%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,017.60 per troy oz, +38.10 (+3.89%) while the price of COPPER is $4.45 per pound, +0.06 (+1.44%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,989.17 per troy oz., +91.82 (+4.84%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,220,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,052.00 per USD/T, +27.50 (+0.91%). The price of ZINC is $3,620.00 per troy oz., +53.00 (+0.91%).   The price of COCOA is $2,657.00 per USD/T, +26.00 (+0.99%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,223.70 USD 1,000 board feet -45.00 (-3.52%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000024.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.34 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.50.    In El Salvadoran Colón, one greenback equals 875 and in Saudi Riyal, a buck equals 3.75 and in São Tomé and Principe Dobra, one dollar equals 21,224.39 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 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 $4.649 per gallon, $3.217 in Florida, $4.333 in Hawaii, and $3.958 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: New Mexico- $3.255.  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 101st HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Fiji: $4.884 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,817,463,719,659 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 Luxembourg the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Our dear Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border crisis now for 295 days and it’s been 208 days since she arrived there to do the job.  Even I have problems defending this.  Here are the statistics for the ongoing crisis as computed by the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  First, here is the cost for this day alone of caring for the undocumented migrants: $1,822,202,619.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the undocumented for the past 364 days: $405,995,076,012.  Next, here is the number of undocumented who have attempted to cross the border this year or who have successfully negotiated it, and have escaped into the interior: 187,391.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of noncitizens in the U.S. for the past 364 days: 42,344,779.  If this miniscule number is indeed true, it still is an unacceptable number because of the cost on the dwindling resource our country possesses.  We have noncitizens here, too.  We have people from across Asia, from New Zealand and Australia, from Europe, Canada, even the Caribbean.  They drive up rents, lower wages, drive drunk on our not-so-great roads, commit robberies, rapes, and other crimes.  President Biden, please defend our borders.  Thank you.
  8. 2022 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Amid the ongoing crisis in Lebanon, the U.S. Treasury slaps new sanctions on Hezbollah.  Next- and this is good news- Israel announces that it has had a ‘breakthrough’ on its antiballistic missile tests.  When Iran’s missiles are incoming, we hope they can take them all down.  (Note- we also hope they have developed missiles of their own that can carry the fight to Tehran and pulverize that horrible city).  In other foreign and overseas news, fury is growing among the civilized peoples of the world over the Chinese communists slaughtering small animals in Hong Kong, all because of claims they are COVID-19-positive.  This sounds as though it’s a punitive measure against the freedom-loving peoples of Hong Kong.
  9. 2022 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson has made an astounding about-face since he is facing being booted as the PM over his partying while the rest of the nation was under harsh lockdown and restrictions.  Thus- coincidentally, “BoJo” says that he ‘believes COVID-19 has peaked’ and that the country NO longer requires ‘COVID-19 passports, mask mandates, or work restrictions.’  The country is now FREE!  However, across the English Channel, French President Emanuel Macron is demanding that the European Union add ‘abortion rights’ to the EU’s charter.   Finally, the parents of Otto Warmbier- murdered by the North Koreans- have received $240,000 seized from the North Koreans.  Good for them.  This in no way can right the loss but it will help to set things right.
  10. 2022 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The World Health Organization revealed today that there’s ‘no evidence showing children or adults require a booster shot to combat the COVID-19 virus.’  Well.  If you want to come to Hawaii, Governor David Ige now says visitors need THREE SHOTS or no entry.
  11. 2022 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– The Utah state Senate has voted overwhelmingly to end all statewide mask mandates.  Good for you.  However, President Joseph R. Biden is handing out 400 ‘free’ N95 masks to Americans who want them.  My colleagues believe this is far from being altruistic; no, they believe that members of my party receive kickbacks for doing such beneficial things.  They could be right.  When it comes to government, nothing is ever ‘free.’  We pay for it.
  12. 2022 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $53.54 (2) AstraZeneca: $59.48 (3) Merck & Company: $81.29 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $166.58 (5) Novavax: $92.33 (6) BioNTech: $161.66 (7) Moderna: $174.07.
  13. 2022 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $89.70 (2) General Dynamics: $210.36 (3) Boeing: $217.08 (4) Lockheed Martin: $377.33 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $401.65.
  14. 2022 Wednesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $33.68 (2) DuPont: $81.56 (3) Honeywell: $210.73 (4) 3M: $178.48 (5) Teijen: $1,456.00.
  15. 2022 Wednesday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $66.60 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.43 (3) Beyond Meat: $63.20.
  16. 2022 Wednesday O: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $143.94  (2) Lowe’s: $234.70 (3) Home Depot: $359.69 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $490.16 (5) Amazon: $3,125.98.
  17. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden News I– President Joseph R. Biden Jr., continues with what some call ‘fearmongering,’ by perpetually suggesting that Vladimir Putin is going to invade Ukraine.  It’s as if he is willing the United States and the NATO allies into war with Russia.  Some believe it’s a case of ‘wag the dog,’ that since his poll numbers are abysmally low, he is seeking something to divert attention away from his domestic troubles.  Next, Joe Biden has named two big donors to become ambassadors to the United Kingdom and Denmark.  I thought we weren’t going to do these things anymore.
  18. 2022 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Politico Morning Consult poll says that a majority of Americans do not believe that Joe Biden is capable of leading the country.  They are questioning their mental fitness.
  19. 2022 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden White House is soft-launching a COVID-19 website with which to disseminate information regarding vaccines, mask and test distributions, and other information pertinent to the American people.  Next, the administration is telling the chip industry to brace for possible Russian export curbs.  Regarding talk of still more COVID-19 relief, former South Carolina governor, and former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley slams Democrats over this never-ending debacle.
  20. 2022 Wednesday S: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Further details emerge on the Oath Keepers ‘weapons stockpile’ last year on January 06, 2021.  Next, the 1-06-2021 select committee announced today that they will be interviewing mystery man, Ray Epps, on Friday.  Remember- this man was seen all day January 05, 2021, and the morning of the following day whipping up a frenzy among Trump voters to storm the Capitol.  (Note- in a sidebar, Alec Baldwin- irascible actor- found himself slammed with a lawsuit after he accused some woman of having participated in the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill riots.  He should keep his mouth shut.  He’s not on anyone’s list of popularity right now seeing as how he shot two people- murdered one of them- and refuses to take any responsibility for it.  Shame on him.  In other news, the U.S. Department of Justice is going to provide the select committee with four pages of Donald Trump’s documents from last year concerning the riots.  Finally, new analysis shows that Ashli Babbitt- murdered by Capitol Hill Police Lt. Michael Byrd on January 06, 2021, was trying to steer protesters away from the door when Officer Byrd shot and killed her.  This is not good.
  21. 2022 Wednesday T: Political News I– As his fellow Democrats continue blasting Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, and Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, Senator Joe Manchin says- regarding primary challengers- to bring them on, that it’s a way of life for him.  Regarding Senator Sinema, Emily’s List says it will cut her off over her stance on the filibuster rule.  She won’t change it.  In other Joe Manchin-related news, sports figures are pressuring him to support ending the filibuster so the party can get the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act pushed through.   Newbie Senator Mark Kelly, D-AZ, says he will ‘conditionally support changing the filibuster rule.’
  22. 2022 Wednesday U: Political News II– Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says ‘it’s well past time for “America’s Doctor” Tony Fauci to go.[xi]  In other GOP news, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that the Republicans want President Donald J. Trump back in the White House ASAP.   Next, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says that Senate Majority Leader Charles “Chuck” Schumer, D-NY, says that ‘Leader Schumer is terrified- his words- of facing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY 14th congressional district, in a primary challenge this fall.  (Leader Schumer is having other problems what with bills reining in BIG TECH on the horizon and his ties to BIG TECH).
  23. 2022 Wednesday V: Political News III– House Democrats are assuring President Joseph R. Biden that they are willing to pass portions of his Build Back Better bill.  In other news, things are not looking up for Pennsylvania U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz, GOP: in a recent straw poll, out of five or six candidates, he received just ONE vote.  Not good.  In other news, Congressman Lance Gooden, R-TX 5th congressional district, says that the resettlement loan program is drawing more undocumented migrants into the United States.
  24. 2022 Wednesday W: Political News IV– This evening word came that Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin voted with the GOP thus ending any hope of pushing the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act.  President Joe Biden’s agenda is now DEAD.  Completely.  In other news, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, Republican- possible U.S. Senate candidate against first-termer Mark Kelly, Democrat, says that the Copper State ‘will not permit President Biden to intimidate his state’ over the ongoing investigation into the 2020 Elections.  Finally, Texas Attorney General Kenneth Paxton says the Lone Star State’s synagogue standoff demonstrates WHY NO ONE trusts the FBI anymore.  Yeah, kind of curious as to WHY the FBI doesn’t protect our nation from true terrorists?
  25. 2022 Wednesday X: Political News V– MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough says that President Joe Biden’s ‘leftist governing has failed.’  (Note- he did promise to be a uniter and not a divider and things are not going well).  Speaking of the President, he did concede during today’s lengthy press conference that the country is indeed weary of COVID-19 but that the country is in a better place.’  Mr. President, the country is in a WORSE place- you need to step it up or you will go down.  In other political news, Congressman Tim Walberg, R-MI 7th congressional district, says that parents are still the ‘educators’ and that ‘teachers teach.’  Amen.
  26. 2022 Wednesday Y: U.S. Supreme Court News I– Despite what news reports suggest, the U.S. Supreme Court says there is no mask feud between fully vaccinated- and boosted- Associate Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Neil Gorsuch.  I do not believe there ever was and if true, then it seems mighty silly.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear the case of a Bremerton, Washington, high school football coach Joseph Kennedy for refusing to halt prayers at the 50-yard line with his players AFTER the game was over.  Friends, we must return religion to the schools if we are to save the nation.  Finally, the Supreme Court has refused Donald Trump’s bid to shield documents from the 01-06-2021 select committee.
  27. 2022 Wednesday Z: Lawsuit and Legal News– The University of Michigan has arrived at a $490 million settlement to settle sexual assault claims that have been lodged against this institution of higher learning.  In other legal news, Britney Spears is still having trouble with her corrupt family.  The recently-liberated girl had to send a ‘cease and desist’ letter to her sister.  Britney says she ‘won’t be bullied.’  In other news, a woman is suing Southwest Airlines after she was ejected from a flight.  Finally, the Trump Org. is responding powerfully to New York State Attorney General Letitia James, Democrat, who is running a malicious prosecution against the former president.
  28. 2022 Wednesday AA: Crime and Punishment News– We watch the news in Hawaii, too, and we have seen the appalling train robberies occurring in Los Angeles, California.  This is shocking and this must end.  I would suggest to leaders in my party that to diminish the problem of crime across the country is going to transform lots of Democrats into reluctant Republicans, reluctant Republicans who will vote for the GOP.  It helps not that U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg says ZIP about these crimes.  He needs to step up and do something to stop this.  NOW.  In other crime news, freshman New York City Mayor Eric Adams says that he ‘does not feel safe on the city’s subways.’   Bet you won’t be taking them to work anymore- and unlike your fellow citizens- you have security protecting you.  Finally, the police arrested Cleveland Browns’ player Malik McDowell for indecent exposure and for assaulting a police officer during his arrest.  Note to Malik- keep your thing in your pants.
  29. 2022 Wednesday BB: New York State News– As New York State descends into madness, Andrew Giuliani, GOP, says that as attorney general, he would tackle crime on Day No. 1.  In other Empire State news, Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, has raised $8.4 million in his bid to become the state’s next governor.
  30. 2022 Wednesday CC: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3631 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 25, 27, 46, 47, and Mega 24.  Out of 80,396 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $4,853 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #939 with a jackpot of $62 million up for grabs: 11, 15, 43, 55, 61, and Power 10.  Out of 37,236 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $505,966.

Guitar gunslinger Richard Thompson returned on May 28, 2007, with his next studio album, “Sweet Warrior,” a glorious addition to his ever-expanding catalog of unique guitar-driven music.  Thompson plays practically every instrument with strings and then some and is joined by a slew of other able-bodied musicians to generate a glorious sound.  Appearing on the album are Michael Hays (rhythm guitar, acoustic guitars, backing vocals), Michael Jerome (drums and percussion), Danny Thompson (upright bass), and a bevy of others on horns, strings, and even handclaps.  We hope you will seek this one out as it is a wonderful album, one that received extremely positive reviews and is one we particularly enjoy.  Seek it out now and add it to your collection- you will be forever glad you did.

  64. 2018 Monday:  Prime Minister Theresa May of Great Britain sees the writing on the wall when it comes to Brexit.  Knowing that her bill for Brexit is going to fail, she cancels the vote in parliament.  This would be the beginning of the end of her time as the prime minister.  Meanwhile, in Marrakech, Morocco, 164 countries sign onto the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration.  This BS compact seeks to open up Western nations to the dregs of the Third World.      
  65. 2019 Tuesday: On this day, Democrats in Washington, D.C., members of six House committees what with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Chairman Adam Schiff (House Intel Committee), Chairman Jerrold Nadler (House Judiciary Committee) among others announce articles of impeachment- obstruction of Congress and abuse of power-  against President Donald J. Trump.   Then, within two hours, the Democrats start talking about passing the USMCA, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.   
  66. 2020 Thursday: Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh mentioned on his show how he has heard people wondering if secession of the conservative states is a possibility.  Over the course of the next 24 hours, Fake News Media said he was ‘calling for secession.’  He clarified today that that was not what he said and anyone who is a regular listener of the show knows he never called for such an event.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says she has “No concerns over Congressman Eric Swalwell being compromised by a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang or Fang-Fang,” a woman with whom the dimwitted congressman is rumored to have had a multi-year affair.  The man MUST go.  Next, the U.S. Senate is unable to block the sale of F-35 jets to the United Arab Emirates, a sale pushed through by the Trump administration.   Regarding the U.S. military, the Pentagon says it will no longer provide support for CIA counterterrorism operations.   Finally, U.S. B-52 H bombers fly to the Middle East to deter Iranian hegemony and aggression in the region. 
  67. 2020 Thursday A: The World Food Program- an entity that says 270 million people across the globe face imminent starvation- receives the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize Award.  Meanwhile, Morocco becomes the fourth Arab country in as many months to normalize relations with Israel.  Congratulations.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Treasury sanctions Russia, Yemen, and Haiti for human rights abuses on Human Rights Day- where are the Chi-Coms?  They should be at the head of the list for human rights abuses…
  68. 2020 Thursday B: In the shock of shocks for the day, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, mass murderer of the aged, the vulnerable, and the derelict in his state through sending legions of Chi-Vi-infected patients into nursing homes, now says he has ‘no choice other than to raise taxes.’  People of New York throw this ignorant POS and his doppelganger- the mayor of New York City Bill “Commie” Di Blasio out NOW! 
  69. 2020 Thursday C: In the “Pro-China Joe” Biden administration that may never be, the Unseen Hand behind the so-called ‘president-elect’ continues selecting Obama administration leftovers and members of the “B-Team” to positions in the ‘next administration: Denis McDonough will head Veterans’ Affairs, Susan Rice- since she cannot win Cabinet confirmation in the current GOP-controlled Senate will head the Domestic Policy Advisory Council.  Tom Vilsack will head the Department of Agriculture as he did for eight years of the Obama-Biden administration.  Congresswoman Marcia Fudge, DS-OH 11th congressional district- who once considered challenging “Mumbles” Pelosi for House Speaker- will become the secretary of Housing and Urban Development, continuing the war on America’s suburbs.  All in all, it appears to be a list of pro-communist China leftists.  You go, Joe!
  70. 2020 Thursday D: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton tells Newsmax TV this could be our ‘last chance’ to overturn the fraudulent election results in key battleground states.  Additional states are joining the fight as they are the lawsuit against Facebook for being a monopoly.  Break the scumbags up and send Mark Zuckerberg to prison for doing the work of the Chi-Coms.   Elsewhere, Florida Attorney General Ashley Brooke Moody says the ‘Supreme Court should hear the lawsuit launched by AG Paxton in Texas.  Meanwhile, U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin says COVID-19 relief checks would do more for the American people than continued unemployment checks.  The Democrats won’t budge on any Chinese Virus relief for the American people unless it provides HELP to Blue States and/or Blue State mayors as well as keeps liability options open so anyone who gets the Wuhan Virus on the job or as a customer can sue the business to death.    The FDA says the COVID-19 vaccine is essential for achieving ‘herd immunity’ against the Kung Flu.
  71. 2020 Thursday E: Tonight’s Thursday Night NFL Game is (1) New England Patriots, 3 (6-7) @ Los Angeles Rams, 24 (9-4) 5:30 P.M.  Stick around for results.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On August 12, 1998, the record label of Simon Nichol combined his two solo albums onto one package.  “Before Your Time/Consonant Please Carol,” provides a retrospective look at what this legendary British folk musician added to this band.  Here is what we wrote of his first album: Simon Nichol released his first official solo album on March 23, 1987, “Before Your Time.”  An amazing artist, songwriter, and vocalist, the man has his English and Celtic folk rock down.  Joining Simon are Dave Pegg (basses), John Kirkpatrick (accordions), Maartin Allcock (basses), two singers, and Mr. Nichol on everything else.  This one can sometimes be challenging to find; however, if you visit sites such as AllMusic, Discogs, and other online emporiums of music, you might find it at a decent price even by visiting eBay and other such sites.  Ah, well, seek it out and if able to give it a listen, please do so.  We think you will enjoy it as much as do.  We still listen to our fading LP format of the record.  Here is what we said of his second album: Simon Nichol released his second official solo album on May 13, 1992, “Consonant Please Carol.”  An amazing artist, songwriter, and vocalist, the man has his English and Celtic folk rock down.  Joining Simon are Dave Pegg and Danny Thompson (basses), John Kirkpatrick (accordions), Maartin Allcock (basses, guitars, keyboards), two singers, and loads of other musicians joining the veteran British musical legend.  Do yourselves a favor and check this one out now- you will be glad you did.

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] According to author John Shaw of Time-Life Books, the 6th Panzer Division was spoiling for a fight having traveled all the way from Brittany to the Soviet Union.  Once in Russia, they faced constant partisan attacks and train derailments so that when they arrived on scene in southern Russia, they were willing to wipe the floor with the Soviets.

[ii] We are hoping to begin doing the music of the Move, the Electric Light Orchestra, and Roy Wood’s Wizzard sometime in 2020, possibly 2021.  We hope you will remain vigilant, so you won’t miss them.  We will keep everyone posted.

[iii] Apparently for Albania of the time, the Soviet Union was not ‘communist enough.’  They favored the style of communism prevalent at the time in Mao Zedong’s China.  Interesting to note.

[iv] At some as yet undetermined point, we are going to go on an all-out Motown and Soul blitz, probably sometime before 2030 so we hope you will keep posted.  Otis Redding is one of the all-time greats and had he not died before his time could have been one of the music world’s megastars. 

[v] 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.    The “Wings Over America” album appeared on Saturday, 07-January-2017.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We are hopeful we will present the music of the Band and of its individual members sometime in 2024-2025.  Great music by a superb band.

[vii] Not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of Bob Dylan but one day, we sure heck we do.  Stay tuned.

  52. 2020 Tuesday B: U.S. Secretary of Labor Eugene Scalia says that the rapid deployment of the vaccine for the Chi-Vi should drive unemployment below five percent given leftwing loony tunes governors like Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, and other BLUE STATE dictators reopen their states instead of crushing their people.  We say that as long as California Governor Gavin Newsom continues destroying average working Californians that the world boycotts ALL wines made by his Plumpjack Winery in Napa Valley.  This man is literally destroying the lives of the people who elected him, and he must face repercussions for his blatant criminality.
  53. 2020 Tuesday C: The U.S. Army fires or suspends 14 upper military officers in charge at the Fort Hood military base in Texas over the number of suicides, murders, and disappearances of military personnel on site.  Something isn’t right on this base and it’s high time they investigate the scum running it.  Meanwhile, we learn that millions of smart devices are susceptible to Chi-Com hacking.   Elsewhere, we learn that noncooperation with New Jersey’s Chi-Com Virus tracking program is at or above 74-percent.  Excellent, we do not respond to contact tracers here in California.  We say, “F**k them!”  Finally, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects the Pennsylvania mail-in balloting case (although it’s still on the docket).

  55. 2020 Tuesday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,401,680 confirmed cases, 20,076 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 18,976 confirmed cases, 262 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 191,468 confirmed cases, 3,080 confirmed deaths, but like California, the apelike governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, West Virginia: 57,060 confirmed number of cases, 870  confirmed number of deaths, and 36,513 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 348,285 confirmed cases, 2,932 confirmed deaths, and 330,188 confirmed recoveries.

  57. 2020 Tuesday G: Stay tuned for results from this afternoon’s NFL game between (15) Dallas Cowboys, 17 (3-9) @ Baltimore Ravens, 34 (7-5) as well as tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1614 with a $264 million jackpot.  Here are the winning numbers: 15, 19, 33, 39, 68, and Mega 25.
