  57. 2017 Wednesday: Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appoints former FBI Director Robert S.

  59. 2019 Friday: Taiwan becomes the first Asian nation to legalize same-sex marriage as a vote by parliament confirms it.  Based on this alone is reason enough as to WHY the civilized world must welcome Taiwan- the Republic of China, aka Nationalist China, aka FREE China- back to the United Nations as an original founding member.  Elsewhere, a federal judge in Virginia sentences a former CIA officer- Kevin Patrick Mallory- to a 20-year stretch in a federal prison for having spied on behalf of the Chi-Coms.  Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passes the Equality Act which prohibits discrimination based on sexual preferences and gender identity.  (Note- there was a time when people kept this crap to themselves ut no more- thus we now have a law).
  60. 2020 Sunday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis statistics for the globe: 4,710,614 confirmed cases, 315,023 confirmed deaths, and 1,732,344 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,516,343 confirmed cases, 89,932 confirmed deaths, and 281,192 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-bloggers, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, California first: 78,839 confirmed cases, 3,261 confirmed deaths, BUT NO number of confirmed recoveries: POLITICS.  Next up, Hawaii: 640 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 572 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, here is Washington state’s stats: 18,433 confirmed cases, 1,001 confirmed deaths, but, like California, 0 number of confirmed recoveries. 
  61. 2020 Sunday A: Now, interesting note here: people are criticizing Russia for not sharing their REAL stats, they say the number of deaths are too low.  Well, Russia said today they are only listing those citizens actually killed by the coronavirus and not those who might have died with the virus but from other things.  Would that not be great if the CDC would do the same thing, and would it not be great if the CDC forced every state to report the actual statistics?  Here’s Russia’s stats: 281,752 confirmed cases, 2,631 confirmed deaths, and 67,373 confirmed recoveries.  IF anyone is lying about their numbers, it’s the communist Chinese, the nation that gave this crap to the entire world.  Here are their numbers: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  People’s Republic of China: NOTHING BUT LIARS.
  62. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 164,253,597 confirmed cases, +523,609, 3,403,704  confirmed deaths, +10,308 and 144,165,892 confirmed recoveries, +84,530.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,744,062 confirmed cases, UP 21,893 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,504 confirmed deaths, UP 339,[vii] and 27,193,861 confirmed recoveries, UP 57,841.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  63. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since JOE BIDEN became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 284,283 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 175,326 deaths.     
  64. 2021 Monday 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: 3,769,895 confirmed cases, 62,698 confirmed deaths, and 2,012,591 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,293,980 confirmed cases, 36,139 confirmed deaths, and 1,891,240 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,834 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 424,930 confirmed cases, 5,684 confirmed deaths, and 205,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wuhan repatriated: they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.[ix]   In other COVID-19 news, the Lone Star State reports NO new Chi-Vi deaths two months after Joe Biden called the state leadership ‘Neanderthals’ because they ended the mask mandates.  My, my, my.  Meanwhile, the director of the Centers of Disease Control was busy defending the mask mandate.  (Note- millions of Americans no longer believe masks work and that they have become a more a political statement than they were ever about health.  After all, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci said in the beginning of the Chi-Vi crisis that ‘masks were ineffective,’ then they were, then perhaps two were required, then maybe even goggles (that one vanished quickly), and finally 3, 4, or more masks were necessary.  BULLS**T.  Hey- why NO earmuffs, Dr. Fauci?).
  65. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,159 confirmed cases, 6,389 confirmed deaths, and 832,093 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Albania, an ancient nation: 132,032 cases of the virus, 2,435 confirmed deaths and 125,419 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  66. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,327.79, DOWN 54.34 points (-0.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,379.05, DOWN 50.93 points (-0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,163.29, DOWN 10.56 points (-0.25%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.30 per barrel, +0.03 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.70 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $28.36 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,245.70 per troy oz, +1.20 (+0.10%) while the price of COPPER is $4.73 per pound, +0.02 (+0.38%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,906.73 per troy oz, +5.51 (+0.19%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (+0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.77.     In Turkmenistan Manat, one greenback equals 3.49 and in Ugandan Schilling, a buck equals 3,523.94 and in Ukrainian Hryvnia, one dollar equals 27.51 of theirs.[xiv]   In other business news, the availability of fresh oranges and coffee may soon be in question or worse, prices will rise uncontrollably because Brazil is fighting a water shortage.  (Note- there was a time when we made or grew many of the things our country required to improve life for the American people whereas at some point a few decades back, we outsourced everything to other nations.  Globalism does not work nor is it wanted).  
  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.132 per gallon, $2.893 in Florida, $3.854 in Hawaii, and $3.539 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Virginia: $2.936.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.251 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,298,240,723,054 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– First, today is Day 55 for ‘Border Czar Kamala Harris NOT visiting the southern border.  Second, the Acting Director of ICE Tony Pham admits that once Immigration and Customs Enforcement dumps illegal aliens in the interior of the country, they no longer monitor them.  Next, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, blasted the Joe Biden regime on failing to fulfill its duty to the American people and putting an end to the invasion along the southern border.  Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, says that U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas ‘is not taking the border crisis seriously.’  Meanwhile, One America News released updates stats on the numbers: the cost of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens on the American taxpayers is- $489,79,264.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegals that have flowed into the country since January 20, 2021- 1,532,565 illegals.  The total cost of caring for these illegal aliens this year now sits at $149,530,181,632.  Finally, the current number of illegal aliens lurking within the U.S. is around 35,532,564 which means, we are being overwhelmed. 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says that ‘Joe Biden could erase $1.7 trillion in student loan debt with the stroke of a pen.’  (Note- of course but that does NOT mean that debt simply vanishes.  Someone is left holding the bag).  Next, Joe Biden approves the sale of $735 million in military aid to Israel as they fight to survive.  In other Joe Biden news, news reports suggests that pressure is increasing on both him and the Federal Reserve to do something about rising inflation.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden seeks to codify Roe even though Mississippi and other states are passing common sense laws regarding the murdering of the unborn.  (Note- funny how when it comes to slaying the unborn within their mother’s womb, it’s ‘my body my choice’ whereas when it comes to allowing the American people to remove their masks, it’s NOT my body, my choice.  HIV-AIDS patients should be having to show health cards, too, instead of, uh, like in San Francisco, one does not have to inform their partner of their HIV-AIDS status).
  70. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden News–  Last year, Joe Biden reportedly made $607,336 in earnings and paid a federal income tax rate of 25.9-percent.  In other Joe Biden news, that nut-job, Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is taking orders from Benjamin Netanyahu’ and urges the United States to condemn Israel.  STFU jihadist.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Political News I–  Journalist Jeff Greenfield says that the ‘GOP is united and that it’s rallying around President Donald J. Trump.’  Next, (and this is strange), the Department of Homeland Security is trembling in its jackboots that for some unspecified reason, domestic terrorists might be planning on launching attacks during the rollback of mask mandates and the lessening of the Wuhan Flu.  (Note- not clear as to why they believe something as stupid as this; then again, they could have some operatives ready to launch new FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS.  We guess we shall see).  In other news, President Donald J. Trump is scheduled to speak at the GOP Convention in North Carolina on June 05, 2021.  Finally, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the only one benefitted by the ‘mask mandates’ is Joe Biden.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Social Media News And Big Tech News– The CEO of Cameo says that President Donald J. Trump can join their platform.   Next, Vimeo dumps My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell.  Meanwhile, Judge Mark L. Wolf says the court may take Twitter to task over allegations that the social media site prohibits or bans conservative speech while promoting far-left, loony tunes speech.  Good.  Bust them up.  Elsewhere, Parler is back in the App store and also has a new CEO.  In other BIG TECH news, the Wall Street Journal reports that Bill Gates may have been removed as head of Microsoft over a lengthy affair with an underling, i.e., an employee.  Add to his woes the fact that ties reportedly exist between him and murdered pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein.
  73. 2022 Tuesday: Yes, we know, we are running behind but business is back!

  64. 2020 Friday: More and more information continues coming to light that demonstrates the coup attempt to remove President Donald J. Trump was just: a FAILED coup.  Millions of Americans demand that the participants in this endeavor face justice for the crime of treason.  Many of these rats are getting nervous already and who knows?  Barack Hussein Obama might find himself in the hot seat.   
  65. 2020 Friday A: Meanwhile, in the world of the Kung Flu- the Chinese Virus, COVID-19, confirmed cases globally are 3,938,828; confirmed deaths are 274,655, and confirmed recoveries are 1,319,306 which is extremely good.  In the United States, we have 1,317,175 confirmed cases, 78,198 confirmed deaths, and 182,305 confirmed recoveries which most likely would be far higher if liberal states reported them.  California claims 63,698 confirmed cases and 2,711 confirmed deaths (with no info on confirmed recoveries).  Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 deaths but 566 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Washington state notes 16,388 confirmed cases and 905 confirmed deaths but no notation as to the confirmed recoveries.  It is interesting to note that New York Governor Andrew Cuomo caused more than 4,000 deaths in nursing homes statewide by forcing them to house COVID-19 positive patients with rest home patients.  He will face justice himself for this outrage. 
  66. 2020 Friday B: Due to China’s ‘gift to the world,’ COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, 20.5 million U.S. jobs were lost in the month of April alone, driving unemployment to nearly 15-percent, a number not seen since the days of the Great Depression.  Communist China must pay for this outrage and it’s high time the United States begins pushing for a resumption of the Two-China Policy by demanding Taiwan be returned to the United Nations as a FULL member with its original seat on the Security Council.   Elsewhere, the chief prosecutor in Venezuela handling the case of the mercenaries hired to topple ‘much-beloved’ President Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro demands the extradition of an American as well as two Venezuelan dissidents seeking freedom for their country.  Prosecutor Tarek William Saab wants American Jordan Goudreau and the two Venezuelans J.J. Rendon and Sergio Vergara ASAP.

Currently, Joe is shy 182,837 deaths.      
  69. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,757,645 confirmed cases, 62,278 confirmed deaths, and 2,001,995 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,266,575 confirmed cases, 35,710 confirmed deaths, and 1,840,547 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,126 confirmed cases, 487 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,248 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,525 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Guam, a place the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C. and Puerto Rico become states: they have 8,034 confirmed cases, 139 confirmed deaths, and 7,789 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]   
  70. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,885 confirmed cases, 6,376 confirmed deaths, and 831,480 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Bahrain, a new friend of Israel: 187,905 cases of the virus, 678 confirmed deaths and 174,357 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

  72. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.095 per gallon, $2.880 in Florida, $3.822 in Hawaii, and $3.511 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Oklahoma: $2.707.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Iran: $1.946 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,264,002,317,913 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.
  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.
  75. 2021 Saturday H: Political News II– Karen Fann- president of the Arizona state senate- says that when the audit is over, she expects many irregularities will be discovered.  Next, new GOP voting laws look to hold election officials accountable as they should.  IF what happened to President Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

Andrew Cuomo, there are 327,469 confirmed cases, 20,828 confirmed cases and like California and Washington state, NO numbers for recoveries.  Could it be political?  You better believe it.
  65. 2020 Thursday A: Following a viral video showing Chi-Com sailors aboard their ‘fishing boats’ throwing the body of a dead Indonesian fisherman overboard, the government of Indonesia summons the Chi-Com ambassador to an immediate meeting to discuss the outrageous mistreatment of its citizens serving aboard the Chi-Com ‘fishing fleets’ (which in reality are actually intelligence-gathering operations with foreign fishing crews aboard them to do the ‘fishing’ because fishing is beneath modern-day Chi-Com citizens).   Elsewhere, law enforcement in Brunswick, Georgia, scoops up father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael and charges the two scumbags for chasing down black jogger Ahmaud Arbery on tape beating and then murdering him.  They claimed he was breaking into houses in their area and that they were forced to take matters into their own hands.  These guys are going to fry.   
  66. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet As A Whole: 157,530,729 confirmed cases, +3,760, 3,283,708  confirmed deaths, +489, and 135,797,758 confirmed recoveries, +95,586.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,418,826 confirmed cases, UP 52,506 from yesterday’s reporting, 594,911 confirmed deaths, UP 924,[viii] and 26,324,757 confirmed recoveries, UP 309,944.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  67. 2021 Friday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 279,095 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 198.61 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 183,514 deaths.      
  68. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,756,393 confirmed cases, 62,220 confirmed deaths, and 2,001,539 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,262,598 confirmed cases, 35,644 confirmed deaths, and 1,836,489 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,036 confirmed cases, 486 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 414,899 confirmed cases, 5,620 confirmed deaths, and 202,488 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Puerto Rico, a place  the Democrats want to make our first welfare state: they have 253,302 confirmed cases, 2,355 confirmed deaths, and 112,074 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  69. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,858 confirmed cases, 6,375 confirmed deaths, and 831,432 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Oman, a relatively peaceful Arab country: 199,344 cases of the virus, 2,083 confirmed deaths and 181,696 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  70. 2021 Friday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,777.76, UP 229.23 points (+0.66%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,752.24, UP 119.39 points (+0.88%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,232.60, UP 30.98 points (+0.74%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,832.00 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $27.57 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.60 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.75 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,926.51 per troy oz, -20.16 (-0.68%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.90.     In Pound Sterling, one greenback equals 0.72 and in Qatari Rial, a buck equals 3.68 and in Romanian Leu, one dollar equals 4.05 of theirs.[xv]     Elsewhere, in a MASSIVE blow to the Joe Biden regime, the economy added ONLY 266,000 jobs last month while Democrats were deliriously predicting 1,000,000 jobs or more.  Add to that unemployment going from 6.0-percent to 6.1-percent and it would appear that the BOGUS Biden regime ‘infrastructure bill’ is going to face stiffer opposition than expected.[xvi]
  71. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.086 per gallon, $2.882 in Florida, $3.820 in Hawaii, and $3.509 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Ohio: $2.824.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Qatar: $1.923 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,260,030,025,130 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  72. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– After much public outcry, San Diego County, California (nod to Chef Pedro) is canceling a plan on establishing a large tent city in which to house massive numbers of illegal aliens.   (Note- it’s time to rekindle Operation Wetback, an operation that began in June 1954 to deport Mexican illegals back to their country en masse, load these people onto box cars, airliners, buses, even freighters, and sending them BACK to whence the f**k they came.  Now).   Next, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that ‘permanent status is possible for the reunited families of illegal aliens the evil Trump regime separated.  Oh, goodie.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘amnesty and reparations will increase the numbers of illegals seeking to flood our country.’  Amen.
  73. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The U.S. Military is open to training troops from other countries (i.e., mercenaries) to assume our places in Afghanistan once we pull out of that horrible country.  Why can’t we just leave?  Although, here is something we have suggested over the years: WHY not create a U.S. Foreign Legion like the French have theirs?  All the military-aged illegal alien males we can train and send oversea to fight all the wars the Military-Industrial-Political Complex wants to fight.  IF the illegals survive 25 years in the ranks, they can become citizens but not their families, friends, neighbors, or anyone else.[xx]  In other news, Chi-Com hegemony in Africa may soon give them a naval base on the Atlantic.  Wow.  Not good.   Add to that a new report that says the Chi-Coms account for 27-percent of ALL greenhouse gases emitted on the planet.
  74. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Emma Green, an Atlantic writer, says that ‘progressives are clinging to COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns despite what the science says’ (and we always thought progressives ‘listened to science, right?) because it empowers them.  It is amazing to think how many liberal Democrats (and occasional RINO) love the power they have deciding who gets to live their lives and who doesn’t.  They are all fascists at heart.[xxi]
  75. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, is urging the Lone Star State to pass an election integrity law.  In fact, hours after debating, the Texas House of Representatives is advancing a voter integrity bill.  Next the Honest Elections Project says 77-percent of Americans- including 73-percent of black Americans- want voter ID.  So, give it to us and NOT this H.R. 1 and S.R. 1 bulls**t.   In other election news, Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrats WON’T hand over the routers used in the 2020 Elections to the state Senate investigation into election integrity.  What is up with that?   (Note- the Arizona Senate reassured the feds that election audit security is extremely high so DON’T worry).
  76. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden Regime News I–  Biden regime hacks didn’t truly celebrate the National Day of Prayer but when bumbling old Joe Biden made a remark or two, the so-called ‘devout Catholic’ could not mention the name of God.  WTF?  In other Biden regime news, Republican senators OPPOSE a Biden regime plan with which to grant amnesty to American scientific researchers who didn’t disclose they were in bed with the Chi-Coms or other adversarial nations.  No, these scumbags should be doing time in federal prisons.   Meanwhile, we learn today that the NEXT White House Press Secretary could be a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.  Whoa.  So much for picking people based on qualifications, not what’s between their legs or the sort of sex they like.  Our money’s on a tranny.[xxii]  Finally, a Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative Poll says that ‘Florida has not warmed up to “Pro-China Joe” Biden as much as Democrats were hoping.  We doubt that state ever will.
  77. 2021 Friday K: Political News I–  Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘the votes are there to strip Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, of her leadership position.  Boot her ass out NOW.  If she becomes a Democrat, big flipping deal.  Next, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, is signing a bill that will prohibit ALL efforts at defunding the police within their state.  Speaking of the Peach State, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms- once a rising star in the Democratic Party- announced that she won’t be running for a second term…that star has imploded and now is a black hole…[xxiii]
  78. 2021 Friday L: Miscellaneous News I– The U.S. Army is going to allow female personnel to wear ponytails in all uniforms.  Wow.  Big news. Next, the feds have indicted convicted Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and his three fellow officers who have not yet even gone on trial on civil rights charges.  Wow.  So much for double jeopardy, folks.  How many bites of the apple do the feds plan to take?  Moving on, California reports its first ever population decline as people are fleeing the state like it’s a hooker with facial herpes.   Finally, it now appears that President Donald J. Trump has an iron-fisted grip on the Republican Party.  Good.  IT is his and the America First Crowd’s Party.  Period.  
  79. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the numbers for the Mega-Millions Draw #1657 with a $370 million jackpot on the line: 05, 10. 19, 21, 50, and Mega 10.  Out of 151,903 winning tickets, the highest winners were SIX people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,090 apiece.
  80. 2022 Saturday: Stick around and discover the truth along with us…you know it’s going to be good…until BIG BROTHER shuts us down for good…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The tertiary effort by the Band- “Stage Fright” came out on August 17, 1970 and was a wonderful addition to the band’s growing discography.  Once again, the band featured the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).   The album contained two big hits- the title track and “The Shape I’m In.”  What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on December 16, 2020.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as there’s nothing better than this glorious group.  Ask anyone who’s seen them in their heyday, and you will understand just how legendary and amazing they were.  You will love them just as we do.  Enjoy.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

125. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MAY 05, 2022

1954 Wednesday: At Dien Bien Phu, French troops fighting at Claudine 5 are shocked to see a platoon of Moroccan soldiers cut their way through the wire and cross over to surrender to the enemy. The People’s Army immediately launched attacks on this site which cost the French Foreign Legionnaires at least seven men. Once the attack was repulsed through superior force of arms, the remaining Moroccan troops were stripped of their weapons and propelled to join other deserters clustering around the Nam Youm River.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 198

125. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MAY 05, 2022:

Cinco de Mayo (fake ‘Mexican holiday’[i]); Yom Ha’atzmaut; National Day of Prayer and West Virginia Day of Prayer

Acting U.S. Secretary for Homeland Security David Pekoske; Famed Chef and Culinary Genius James Beard; Black Sabbath featuring Bill Ward, Family featuring Jim King, and the Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship featuring Papa John Creach:

  1. 1045 Monday: The reign of the 148th Roman Catholic Pope Gregory V commences today.  He would lead all of Christendom from today until December 20, 1046.
  2. 1260 Wednesday: Kublai Khan becomes ruler of the Mongol Empire on this date.
  3. 1430 Wednesday: The citizens of Speyer, Germany, expel their Jewish citizens.
  4. 1494 Saturday: On his second voyage to the New World, Christopher Columbus sights the Caribbean island of Jamaica, which he named Santa Gloria.
  5. 1762 Wednesday: Russia and East Prussia sign a treaty of peace.
  6. 1798 Saturday: U.S. Secretary of War William McHenry ordered that the USS Constitution be made ready for sea.  The navy launched the frigate on October 21, 1797, but had never put it to sea.

  13. 1865 Friday: With the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, slavery was no more.  What is important to note is that the Republican Party is the creator and proponent of this amendment, not the Democrats who more than 157 years later claim to be the defenders and protectors of black Americans.  No, the Dems are the party of slavery, of the KKK, of burning crosses, of prison farms, of ‘separate but equal,’ red-lining, discrimination, the destruction of the black family.  The Democrats are the slave-holders who have exchanged their black slaves to lives dependent upon welfare while making the illegal aliens their new class of slaves, perpetual low-wage slaves only valued at election time.  NEVER permit the Democrats to lie to YOU that they and ONLY they are the defenders of black Americans. 
  14. 1877 Saturday: To avoid harassment from the United States Army under the command of Colonel Nelson Miles, Sitting Bull leads his band of Lakota people into Canada.

  25. 1920 Wednesday: Democratic President Woodrow Wilson outlaws the Communist Labor Party in the U.S.  Thank God, he did something right.  A century later, the Democratic Party has become the ‘Communist Labor Party.’  He must be rolling over in his grave.

  34. 1954 Wednesday: At Dien Bien Phu, French troops fighting at Claudine 5 are shocked to see a platoon of Moroccan soldiers cut their way through the wire and cross over to surrender to the enemy.  The People’s Army immediately launched attacks on this site which cost the French Foreign Legionnaires at least seven men.  Once the attack was repulsed through superior force of arms, the remaining Moroccan troops were stripped of their weapons and propelled to join other deserters clustering around the Nam Youm River.  These so-called ‘internal deserters’ were men who were unable to sustain the fight and could no longer follow orders.  They lurked in wrecked aircraft and came out at night to compete for air-dropped supplies.  Morale is flagging within the base.[vii]
  35. 1955 Thursday: West Germany became a fully sovereign state.  Meanwhile, the baseball musical, “Damn Yankees” opened on Broadway.  Elsewhere, in Meridien, Connecticut, future Acting U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske is born.  A member of no declared political party, he would serve under President Joe Biden from January 20, 2021, to February 02, 2021.

  52. 2012 Saturday: The moon forms a super moon as it gets the closest to the earth for the year.  Meanwhile, five terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, including 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad appear before a military tribunal.  More than a decade later, these same POS will still be there awaiting trial.  WTF?

  57. 2017 Friday: Effective at midnight, an agreement reached by Russia, Turkey, and Iran will establish a ‘safe zone’ in northern Syria through which NO military aircraft will navigate, including American warplanes.  The ‘safe zone’ will also prohibit military action on the ground.   The United Nations is ecstatic that some semblance of civilization will be restored although Syrian military opposition and jihadists such as ISIS refuse to acknowledge or accept.
  58. 2018 Saturday: NASA launched the Mars In Sight lander from California on a flight of more than six months to the red planet, where the robot geologist would dig deeper into the Martian surface than ever before.  Elsewhere, Palestinians are up to no good once again as a large blast erupts near the town of Deir al-Balah blows at least six Palestinians to kingdom come while injuring numerous others.  Hamas thugs point the jihadist finger at the Israelis who point theirs right back.  Sounds like a case of bomb-making gone bad.  Sad.
  59. 2019 Sunday: Due to Palestinian intransigence and transgression over the past several days, four Israeli and 23 Palestinian citizens lie dead and countless others injured.   Meanwhile, at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, at least 41 die and numerous others are injured as a Russian Aeroflot airliner comes back and makes an emergency landing.   Elsewhere, Juan Guido, president of the nation’s National Assembly, says he is considering a request with which to get the U.S. to invade the country and topple the communist POS dictator Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: After the U.S. Supreme Court begins it session hearing arguments from a distance, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg goes to the hospital for what sounds to be an issue with gall or kidney stones.  Politics aside, we wish her a full recovery and a swift return to work.  This woman is amazing, she has survived numerous health crises in her life and always comes back strong.  God bless you.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s charging of those involved in a plot to topple Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro, President Donald J. Trump denies any involvement in the so-called ‘attempted coup.’
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, the COVID-19 update for the day: confirmed cases globally stand at 3,659,271; confirmed deaths are 256,929; and confirmed recoveries are 1,197,735 which is extremely good.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,233,146, confirmed deaths are 71,921, and confirmed recoveries are 163,841.  In the states connected to this blog, stats for California confirmed cases stand at 56,705 while confirmed deaths are 2,309.  Sadly, Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, confirmed cases are 625, confirmed deaths are 17 and confirmed recoveries are 551.  Finally, in Washington state, confirmed cases are 15,557 and confirmed deaths are 862.  No information on confirmed recoveries so Gov. Jay Inslee is behaving just like Gov. Newsom.  Shame on them.  Question: WHY won’t Democrat-controlled states present recovery statistics?  Finally, communist China’s statistics, the place where this curse began remains the same: confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785 same as they were a week ago.  Shame.
  62. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 155,802,002 confirmed cases, +823,116, 3,254,757  confirmed deaths, +14,035, and 133,945,619 confirmed recoveries, +90,024.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,315,190 confirmed cases, UP 40,075 from yesterday’s reporting, 593,097 confirmed deaths, UP 691,[viii] and 26,014,813 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,527.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  63. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, There Have Been 278,256 Chi-Vi Deaths In The United States- feeble old Joe, in another 280.29 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,277 deaths.    The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says the Pfizer vaccine for teens should be approved by next week. 
  64. 2021 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: 3,751,034 confirmed cases, 62,063 confirmed deaths, and 1,997,994 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,253,929 confirmed cases, 35,492 confirmed deaths, and 1,824,257 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,794 confirmed cases, 485 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 412,129 confirmed cases, 5,593 confirmed deaths, and 201,370 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Washington, D.C., a place  that wants two horrible senators should they become a flipping state: they have 48,041 confirmed cases, 1,109 confirmed deaths, but 33,988 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[x]   
  65. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,767 confirmed cases, 6,370 confirmed deaths, and 831,218 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Venezuela, a place human fecal matter such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter emulate: 201,807 cases of the virus, 2,208 confirmed deaths and 184,161 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  66. 2021 Wednesday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,230.34, UP 97.31 points (+0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,582.42, DOWN 51.08 points (-0.37%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,167.59, UP 2.93 points (+0.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.12 per barrel, -0.57 (-0.87%).  The price of GOLD is $1,784.90 per troy oz., +0.50 (+0.03%) while the price of SILVER is $26.51 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,225.90 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.23%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,964.82 per troy oz, -4.47 (-0.15%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.24.     In Nepalese Rupee, one greenback equals 118.26 and in New Israeli Shekel, a buck equals 3.27 and in Paraguayan Guarani, one dollar equals 6,727.00 of theirs.[xv]   Interesting note- prior to the announcement of their divorce, Bill Gates quietly and quickly moved $1.8 billion in stock to soon-to-be-ex-wife Melinda. 
  67. 2021 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 by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.057 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.807 in Hawaii, and $3.495 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Nevada: $3.513.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Ecuador: $1.910 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,251,982,318,772 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  68. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Bill Johnson, R-OH 6th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the Dems are paying a ransom to Northern Triangle countries to keep their illegal aliens in their country.   Next, Tony Shaffer, president of the London Center for Policy Research and former President Donald J. Trump 2020 national security adviser says that socialism and the drug wars are driving people to flee Central America and come to the U.S.   Here’s a laugh- the Vermont state senate has passed a bill that will permit ILLEGAL ALIENS the right to vote in their state.  Wow.  Yet, they don’t want Americans to believe in the REPLACEMENT THEORY…
  69. 2021 Wednesday G: Biden Regime News I– Apparently, Joe Biden is eyeing clemencies early on in his career.  We are curious as to whom these people might be.    Next, the Biden regime is seeking a ‘special master’ to look into the seized electronic devices taken from Rudy Giuliani and Victoria Toensing.   Next, Joe Biden says he is ‘open’ to compromise on his corporate tax hike.  We’ll see.  Moving on, the White House is considering subsidies for nuclear power plants to help them meet climate targets.  Speaking of ‘climate warriors,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district), aka “The Fly,” aka “Baby Evita,” aka Sandy Cortez and Senator Ed Markey, CPUSA-MA, are pushing a $10 billion, 1.5-million-strong (of little Marxists) Civilian Climate Corps because the planet has a fever.  F**k these people.
  70. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– We learn today that thanks to the Chi-Vi, 20 million more Americans (many of them probably illegal aliens) were beset by food crises last year which means Joe Biden will be giving taxpayer dollars to illegals.  Can’t have them go hungry now, can we?   Elsewhere, the founder of BioNTech prophesizes that the Chi-Vi pandemic will continue until sometime in mid-2022, a date we are sure the Democrats hope will extend to the 2022 Mid-Term Elections so they can try to steal those elections, too.   In other COVID-19 news, over half of the people in the world’s democracies feel that governments repressed freedoms and liberties.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, blasts the FAKE NEWS MEDIA for labeling the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Mount Rushmore State in the summer a ‘super-spreader event.’  That’s the FAKE NEWS MEDIA, always causing trouble via disinformation and misinformation.  F**k them.  Finally, the U.S. Patent Office- at the direction of Joe Biden- is considering waiving patent rights on the vaccines to fight the Chi-Vi so everyone can jump into mass-producing this crap.   (Interesting tidbit- a U.S. federal court has overturned the moratorium on evictions.  Good.  Someone has to help landlords).
  71. 2021 Wednesday I: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Facebook votes to keep President Donald J. Trump banned but orders another ‘review’ down the road.   Once this news came out, President Trump blasted Facebook, Twitter, and Google as a ‘total disgrace’ (which they truly are).  Meanwhile, we learn that Iowa officials coordinated with BIG TECH to censor all posts related to the 2020 Presidential Election- so says Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch.
  72. 2021 Wednesday J: Political News I– Each day that passes, it appears more and more likely that Rep. Liz Cheney[xix], RINO-WY, is going to be toast as more and more Republicans are turning on the RINOs plaguing the GOP.[xx]  We hope she is out ASAP.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner forms the Abraham Accord Institute with which to continue pushing for peace around the world.   Next, the POS head of the Democratic Party in Lamar County, Texas, who called Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, an “Oreo,” offered his resignation earlier in the day but then Democrats in his county would not accept it.  Gary O’Connor is such a loveable guy; his fellow Dems don’t want to see the scumbag go.  Well, we do.   
  73. 2021 Wednesday K: Foreign News / Overseas News I– the president of El Salvador has taken over the country’s supreme court (look for Joe Biden to do something similar in the U.S.).  Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Columbia over the government raising taxes on its people.  The protesters, stupidly enough, are demanding socialism.   Next, those good-humored mullahs in Iran released a truly hilarious video in which it showed their military forces blowing up the U.S. Capitol Building.  Good.  We should blow their seat of government off the flipping map.  Now.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates security assistance to Afghanistan be continued even as U.S. forces pull out of that hellish country.  Yes.  We must.  Otherwise, we will be fighting them here in the streets of the U.S.  Hell, they are already here coming across the southern border.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is in London meeting with the G7 leaders.
  74. 2021 Wednesday L: Miscellaneous News I– After a report of one child’s death and numerous injuries, Peloton is recalling its treadmills.  Next, following the resignation of a top attorney, Coca-Cola pauses its controversial diversity plan.  Ah, the pause that refreshes.   Meanwhile, the state of Texas stops a Chi-Com energy company from purchasing Lone Star State land next to a military base.  Wow.  Thank you.   Elsewhere, LeBron “King of Fecal Matter” James apologizes for having started the wrong conversation about the police officer who was forced by the actions of Ma’ Khia Bryant to take her life before she stabbed another girl to death.  (Note- LeBron is little more than a BIG IDIOT over-amped on steroids and social media-likes.  Dumb ass).  Speaking of Black Lives Matter, a New Jersey police officer was fired for calling BLM ‘terrorists.’  They are TERRORISTS.  We have no problem calling spades ‘spades.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday M: Miscellaneous News II– Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, says that ‘Broadway will be open 100-percent by September.’  Uh, okay, trying to save your job, are we?  Next, Atlanta is ordered by the courts to reinstate a police officer they terminated who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks last year.  If you recall, Mr. Brooks was cooperating with cops after falling asleep in a drive-through lane at a fast-food restaurant and then began to fight.  Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms made sure Officer Garrett Rolfe was canned so she could maintain her bona fides with the BLM movement.  Glad to see you back, officer.  Moving on, a new law being considered could upend the firearms industry.   Laugh of the day, some POS New York City gunman got himself arrested after police read his social media posts.  Next, Sid Miller, Agriculture commissioner for Texas says that IF farmers are being discriminated against by Joe Biden, join our class action lawsuit.  Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis signs a new budget that will bestow $1,000 bonuses on law enforcement officers and first-responders.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws- First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #1656 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 06, 11, 17, 27, 39, and Mega 19.   Out of 119,647 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $10.335 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Lanes Market in Dorris, CA 90263; (2) Lucky Zone Lottery and Cigarettes in Los Angeles, CA 90014; (3) Chevron in El Monte, CA 91731; and (4) Adobe Beverage and Deli in Petaluma, CA 94954.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #843: 16, 23, 28, 40, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 58,518 winning tickets, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $481 apiece.  Good for them!
  77. 2022 Thursday: You know the drill…looks like the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party WOKE stooges are screwing with our numbers…

  64. 2020 Monday: Well, it keeps getting better: we now know we have “Murder Hornets” in the Pacific Northwest.  Although some claim Japan is their homeland, experts now tell us it is communist China where these monstrous insects call home.  Coincidence?  You are the judge.  COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis update: confirmed cases around the world: 3,582,469, confirmed deaths are 251,365, but confirmed recoveries are 1,162,563 so things are looking better.  As for the United States, confirmed cases are 1,201,101, confirmed deaths are 69,579, and confirmed recoveries are 159,789.  In Hawaii, we have 621 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths but 548 confirmed recoveries.  Yet, in the Islands, we live under the authoritarianism of Governor David Ige.  Colleagues in California report 55,657 confirmed cases, 2,254 confirmed deaths and NO- we repeat- NO numbers for confirmed recoveries.  What are you hiding, Gov.

Jay Inslee, what are YOU hiding (asks Chef Vladimir?)?

Currently, Joe is shy 185,968 deaths.

  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.050 per gallon, $2.834 in Florida, $3.796 in Hawaii, and $3.488 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New Mexico: $2.879.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Malaysian: $1.887 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,247,962,760,073 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is visiting the Ukraine today.[xviii]   Next, Iran confirms the authenticity of tape where Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry[xix] commits various Logan Act violations by sharing with the Iranians at least, we repeat- at least– 200 separate incidences of the Mossad carrying out surreptitious activities against Iranian interests in the hellhole of Syria.  In other news related to overseas activities, former Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller- part of the Trump administration- is urging the Biden administration NOT to let its guard down regarding the use of directed-energy weapons on U.S. personnel worldwide.  He calls it ‘an act of war’ and suggests that even if it’s ‘nonlethal,’ we owe it to our people to investigate so as to be better protected in the future.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Covid-19 Updates And Additional Information– First, early information is suggesting that the COVID-19-caused pandemic shutdowns of cities may be in the preliminary stages of reversal.  Next, Pfizer seeks full clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for the use of its Chi-Vi vaccine for everyone.  Elsewhere, U.S. states are not ordering their full allotments of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu over a lessening demand for the questionable inoculations.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Joe Biden Regime News I–   We learn today that thanks to Joe Biden being president (well, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘president’), the death tax is going to rise to 40-61-percent meaning their family’s tragedy will also see financial rape of the grieving survivors.  Wow.  Thank you, President Obama, uh, we mean, “El Presidente Joe Biden.”   Meanwhile, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, DS, says the regime is moving ahead with reuniting illegal alien families torn asunder by the Trump administration.   Elsewhere, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley is dropping his opposition to changes in sexual assault policies.  Wow.  Sell-out.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he is considering a slick budgetary maneuver whereby he can legalize tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of our country.  Gee whiz, thank you, Chuckie, thank you.

  76. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– We learned today that Newsmax settled a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada, that they apologized and agreed to stop questioning the 2020 Presidential Election’s veracity.  One America News, however, won’t back down for which, we congratulate them.  However, if Canada WON’T use Dominion Voting Systems nor Smartmatic Software in their own elections, what does that say about their trustworthiness and honesty?  Not very much.  Speaking of the untrustworthy, it now appears that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out as GOP Conference Chair by the end of the month.  This woman and the other corrupt Republicans that leapt onto the President Donald J. Trump impeachment vote as showing their virtue ALL must lose their seats.  Period.  She needs to join the Democrats of which she truly is one…finally, the Justice Department has been ordered to release the memo cited by then-U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr as to why there was no charge of obstruction launched against President Donald J. Trump when feeble old Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III concluded his ginned-up, bogus investigation into the 45th president.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The attorney for convicted murderer and former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has filed for a new trial now that we learn the jurors were going to convict him on ALL counts no matter what which is not justice but a kangaroo court.  The judge in the case pointed out that thanks to people like that dingbat from California, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, going there and rabble rousing the lynch mob outside the courthouse every day, that her actions put the entire outcome of the trial in jeopardy.  We expect to see Chauvin win a new trial, be acquitted, and get his old job back.  Boo-yeah!
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– stick around for the results on tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1656 with a pot of $345 million available to some lucky winner…here are the results: 04, 27, 32, 57, 63, and Mega 22.  Out of 136,836 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $947,704.

[xviii] This schmo also warned the Chi-Coms it would be a mistake to attack Taiwan.  What is the U.S. going to do to stop it, Secretary Blinken?  Launch a nuclear barrage on the Chi-Coms?  I doubt it.  (Note- living in Israel allows me to view the world differently and I think there is no way the U.S.- without President Donald J. Trump in the White House– can do to stop such an attack.  I fear it would be over before it began- Mo).

[xx] Nikole Hannah-Jones cannot handle any criticism of her bogus ‘history.’  Why is it we cannot continue the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?  Why do we have to continue finding ways of tearing the country apart?  Here is why: for some, it’s profitable.  Look at ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, look at ‘Reverend’ Jesse Jackson, look at that POS lawyer Benjamin Crump, these scalawags and scoundrels reap lots of wealth tearing the fabric of the nation asunder.  Going to be time to move to Russia or Chi-Com land…at least they defend their countries.

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

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

In the United States, confirmed cases sit at 641,919 what with confirmed deaths at 28,399 and confirmed recoveries at 52,196.  Now the Beijing bullshitters claim in the People’s Republic of China, there are 84,489 confirmed cases and 3,342 confirmed deaths and 78,987 confirmed recoveries.  We know this is bullshit, folks, as Western intel agencies say there are at least 2.5 million confirmed deaths and God knows how many cases.  When this ends and it will, it will be time to sue every level of government in the communist country and to welcome Nationalist China- Taiwan- back to the United Nations as a FREE and INDEPENDENT COUNTRY because until the West sold them out to open the doors for the commies, they WERE China.  
  57. 2020 Wednesday A: The DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 23,504.35, down 445.41 (-1.86%), the NASDAQ 8,393.18 down 122.574 (-1.44%), and the S & P 2,783.36, down 62.7 (-2.20%).  Meanwhile, in Michigan, people protest authoritarian Governor Gretchen Whitmer who has the state on the severest lockdown order in the country.  People took to the streets in their cars to let this fascist know she is out of line.  If ANTIFA were an HONEST organization and not just a communist front group, they would be there braving rubber bullets, dogs, and tear gas to protest this left-wing skank.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump calls for government to reconvene so the House and Senate can begin doing the work of the American people instead of sitting home spanking the wank.
  58. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 138,340,920 confirmed cases, +493,648, 2,974,830  confirmed deaths, +9,631, and 78,785,642 confirmed recoveries, +237,506.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,682,046 confirmed cases, UP 73,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 570,531 confirmed deaths, UP 975, and 119,012,328 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[v]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  59. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 243,639 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

101. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 11, 2022

: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  59. 2007 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate is considering a bill with which to allow more scientific research on stem cells.  However, President George W. Bush threatens a veto as he should.  Meanwhile, the chair of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee (and presidential candidate) Joseph R. Biden says he backs the idea of using force in Darfur.  What is it about these Deep Staters who want to involve the United States in wars across the planet?  Enough is enough.  We are tied down in Iraq and Afghanistan.
  60. 2008 Friday: Somali pirates operating in the Gulf of Aden (goes on year after year) release 30 hostages captured aboard a French luxury yacht plying the area.  Folks, who the f**k wants to take a scenic trip through ‘pirate alley?’ (We heard once that the Saudis were considering filling a yacht with people who wanted to light the pirates up just for sport.  Now that is a boat upon which, we would love to sail!).
  61. 2009 Saturday: In the Gulf of Aden, the French navy does battle with Somali pirates who captured a yacht.  The sailors kill several of the thugs, rout the rest, and recover at least four hostages.  We believe it’s time for world powers to join forces and wipe out this scourge of scumbags.  This is the 21st century, folks.
  62. 2010 Sunday: Tehran announces that the Iranians will participate in the upcoming Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty talks in New York.  Of course, they are going to say and do anything necessary for them to continue keeping their nuclear weapons program a clandestine one.  Elsewhere, Poles around the world are commencing a week of mourning their leader, President Lech Kaczynski, who died along with several others in a mysterious plane crash outside Smolensk, Russia.
  63. 2011 Monday: In France, a law banning the wearing of the burqa and the hijab goes into effect on this day—screw the Muslims!  In Egypt in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, protesters demanding ousted President Hosni Mubarak face charges for all kinds of crimes and who were lit up the day before are back demanding all sorts of reforms be instituted to make the country more ‘Islamic.’
  64. 2012 Wednesday:  The North Korean Workers Party names Kin Jong Un First Secretary, with his father, Kim Jong IL as the party’s “eternal” General Secretary.  Elsewhere, rescuers reach nine trapped miners in a collapses copper mine in the southern part of Peru.
  65. 2013 Thursday: Malawi President Joyce Banda accuses singer Madonna of ‘bullying state officials’ after exaggerating the contributions of her charity and complaining about her treatment during a recent visit to the country.  Elsewhere, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan’s offer of amnesty for Boko Haram thugs- if they’d straighten up and stop murdering and abducting people- is rejected by the terrorist group.
  66. 2014 Friday: Budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell is nominated to replace Kathleen Sibelius as U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.  Meanwhile, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducts Cat Stevens[iii], Nirvana[iv], KISS[v], Hall & Oates[vi], Linda Ronstadt[vii], and Peter Gabriel[viii] on this date.  Meanwhile, as Muslims and Christians kill one another in the Central African Republic, the United Nations agrees to send 12,000 blue helmets to keep the two groups from continuing the bloodshed.
  67. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro meet at the Summit of the Americas in Panama for talks aimed at thawing relations; the historic meeting marks the first interaction in decades between top leaders of the two nations.  President Obama loves communists, and he loves jihadists, especially Shiite ones.
  68. 2016 Monday: In war-torn Yemen, a U.N.-backed ceasefire goes into effect between Saudi Arabia and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.  Elsewhere, Goldman Sachs, seen as one of the big causes of the 2008 fiscal crisis that conveniently helped Barack Hussein Obama win the White House reached a settlement with the federal government for having sold ‘derivatives,’ packages of mortgages that contained numerous dogs which when everything went to hell took the entire economy down with it.  Anyhow, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $5.06 billion to settle all claims.
  69. 2017 Tuesday: Famed rock-and-roll guitarist and co-leader of the J. Geils’ Band[ix], John J. Geils, died from natural causes on this date in Groton, Massachusetts, at age 71.  Elsewhere, as U.S. Navy assets approach the two Koreas, Kim Jong Un goes to the microphone banks to address his people (as well as the world) and threatens WAR with the United States if they don’t pull their forces back.  Elsewhere, a U.S. airstrike goes awry in Syria as American jets seeking to light up a bunch of ISIS scumbags instead kills 18 allied Syrian Democratic Forces troops.
  70. 2018 Wednesday: The Palestinians are upset that Israeli troops and a sniper who took out a Hamas thug got off without being in trouble.  Thus, they set off a bomb near some Israeli construction equipment which then leads the Israeli Defense Forces to light up some Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, other trouble-makers in the region- the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels- launch some rockets into Saudi Arabia one of which shows up in the skies over Riyadh but is taken down by Saudi air force jets.
  71. 2019 Thursday: Today, things ended for Julian Assange as British police forcibly removed him from the Ecuadoran embassy in London.   The United States wants him extradited so he can stand charges for his role in Wikileaks releasing loads of secret Iraq war documents.  Elsewhere, the son of a local sheriff in the great state of Louisiana undergoes arrest for having committed several acts of arson against historically black churches in the state.  Holden Matthews would eventually receive a sentence of 25 years in a federal prison with hate crimes attached.  POS.
  72. 2019 Thursday A: The 6.1st Acting U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan assumed office on this date.  He would serve under President Donald J. Trump from today until November 13, 2019.
  73. 2020 Saturday: The day before Easter Sunday, Christian churches around the United States are under statewide and local orders NOT to perform services thanks to the despicable virus engineered in communist China and dispatched around the world.  Around the world, there are 1,684,833 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with 102,136 confirmed deaths and 375,499 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, Americans continue suffering thanks to our ‘friends’ in the People’s Republic of China what with 530,463 confirmed cases, 20,499 confirmed deaths, and 31,340 confirmed recoveries.  In order to fight this malignant plague, the Democratic Party wants to coopt the nation’s election systems and have everyone vote by mail.  What?

  75. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 239,048 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  76. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,696,791 confirmed cases, 60,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,124,233 confirmed cases, 34,021 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 30,956 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 377,979 confirmed cases, 5,373 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Oklahoma, home of the late great Bass Reeves, the true Lone Ranger: they have 442,805 confirmed cases, 6,691 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[xi] 
  77. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 835,933 confirmed cases, 6,296 confirmed deaths, and 825,579 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Kazakhstan, yet another loyal client state of Russia: 320,881 cases of the virus, 3,267 confirmed deaths and 284,034 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  79. 2021 Sunday 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 $3.932 per gallon, $2.839 in Florida, $3.725 in Hawaii, and $3.336 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.708.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,160,214,670,182 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  80. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 499,644,267 confirmed cases, +458,572, 6,205,518 confirmed deaths, +2,146 and 449,418,898 confirmed recoveries, +703,516.

  81. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 563,134 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 198,469 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 446 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  82. 2022 Monday 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: 9,133,348 confirmed cases, 89,498 confirmed deaths, and 8,881,898 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,911,882 confirmed cases, 73,583 confirmed deaths, and 5,796,163 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 241,972 confirmed cases, 1,382 confirmed deaths, and 236,602 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,467,059 confirmed cases, 12,566 confirmed deaths, and 1,429,877 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Montana: they have 272,919 confirmed cases, 3,255 confirmed deaths, and 269,320 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]   
  83. 2022 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,006,177 confirmed cases, 10,591 confirmed deaths, and 3,941,841 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Barth, 209th place on the list: 4,313 cases of the virus, 6 confirmed death and 4,307 confirmed recoveries.[xix]                         
  84. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,308.08, DOWN 413.04 points (-1.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,411.96 DOWN 299.04 points (-2.18%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,412.53, DOWN 75.75 points (-1.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $95.10 per barrel, +0.81 (+0.86%).  The price of GOLD is $1,956.10 per troy oz., +7.90 (+0.41%) while the price of SILVER is $25.23 per troy ounce, +0.24 (+0.97%).  The price of PLATINUM is $981.20 per troy oz, +3.40 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $4.63 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[xx]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,448.73 per troy oz., +16.56 (+0.68%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,900.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.53%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,180,000.00 per CNY/T, -30,000.00 (-2.48%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,229.00 per USD/T, -145.50 (-4.31%). The price of ZINC is $4,320.00 per USD/T., +65.50 (+1.54%).   The price of COCOA is $2,616.00 per USD/T, -4.00 (-0.15%).  The price of COFFEE is $236.60 per USD/T, +4.95 (+2.14%).  The price of LUMBER is $886.30 USD 1,000 board feet -63.60 (-6.70%).[xxi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 19.92, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 81.00 of theirs.    In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,458.50 and in Jamaican Dollar, a buck equals 153.87 and in Japanese Yen, one dollar equals 125.42 of theirs.[xxii]       
  85. 2022 Monday 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 $5.763 per gallon, $4.072 in Florida, $5.228 in Hawaii, and $4.680 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: District of Columbia- $4.237.  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 13th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Egypt: $1.971 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,378,296,809,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Thailand the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany.  This nation holds $75,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  86. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian troops operating in Ukraine have been nominated for ‘Darwin Awards’ over the idiots removing ‘radioactive souvenirs’ from the Chernobyl power plant in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, Ukrainian military authorities are alleging the Russians have used drones with which to disperse chemical weapons in the beleaguered port city of Mariupol.  Civilian and military authorities are awaiting independent confirmation that the Russians did indeed use chemical weapons.  Speaking of such barbarism, a Chechen leader says that Russian President Vladimir Putin should indeed use tactical nuclear weapons to subdue the Ukrainians.  Still, Moscow claims they have eradicated all of Ukraine’s S-300 missile systems.
  87. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says ‘Russia will not suspend its military operations in Ukraine even as ‘peace talks’ between the two countries are underway.   Meanwhile, although the Russians claim otherwise, the mayor of Mariupol says that at least 10,000 civilians have died during the siege and that when the siege is lifted, the true numbers of dead civilians could double that.  How is it the United Nations is not raising troops from member countries and forcing Russia to stop its malevolent actions in a peaceful country?
  88. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris- California’s shame- has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster for the past 374 days and worse, she has not shown up to do more than a couple hours’ worth of work in 288 days.  What has the country done to deserve a vice president such as her?  Okay, we do our best to continue computing the true costs of illegal immigration on America, the same way that One America News did prior to Direct TV removing them from their list of channels.  Perhaps because we continue promoting the honest-to-God numbers to the best of our abilities, perhaps this is why we find ourselves under assault from some of the biggest search engines.  It is what it is.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders since January 01, 2022, is $642,844,149.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since the undynamic duo took their oaths with which they swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution is $42,388,919,892.  The number of illegals we estimate to have crossed the border since January 20, 2021, is 1,026,488.  Fourth and final, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 45,401,750.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is the prime reason our country is in a state of economic malaise (not to mention liberal policies).[xxvi] (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).
  89. 2022 Monday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $53.97 (2) AstraZeneca: $70.63 (3) Novavax: $57.54 (4) Merck & Company: $86.63 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.88  (6) BioNTech: $170.55 (7) Moderna: $160.00.
  90. 2022 Monday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $102.12 (2) Boeing: $175.04 (3) General Dynamics: $243.55 (4) Lockheed Martin: $464.30 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $462.14.
  91. 2022 Monday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.53 (2) DuPont: $68.48 (3) 3M: $150.12 (4) Honeywell: $189.27  (5) Teijen: $1,312.00.
  92. 2022 Monday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $23.55 (2) Beyond Meat: $43.96  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $67.86.
  93. 2022 Monday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $154.33 (2) Lowe’s: $204.75 (3) Home Depot: $306.89 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $584.67 (5) Amazon: $3,022.44.
  94. 2022 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The White House is preparing for ‘extraordinarily-elevated CPI numbers,’ numbers that are sure to lead massive losses in House and Senate seats in November.  Next, the administration nominates a new commander to lead NATO forward.  Meanwhile, even as COVID-19 numbers continue tanking, the Biden administration is seeking a resumption of forcing EVERY federal worker or contractor to undergo forced vaccination with one of the COVID-19 vaccines.
  95. 2022 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– Although President Joe Biden is going to continue forcing all federal workers to undergo vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccines- and although Dr. Anthony Fauci continues saying the American people are going to have to learn to live with this foul disease, the Pentagon is moving onto the next pandemic, whatever it might be.
  96. 2022 Monday P: Political News I– Law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania arrested an elderly man who was sticking “I DID THAT” stickers onto gasoline pumps.  The stickers featured President Joseph R. Biden pointing to the exorbitant cost of the gas pumped.  Other hilarious stickers featured the nation’s vice president, quoted as saying, “I HELPED.”  While we recognize gas station owners must peel the stickers off- sometimes with difficulty- one cannot sidestep the fact that energy costs are sky high, and that the Biden-Harris administration bears COMPLETE responsibility and not Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.
  97. 2022 Monday Q: Political News II– Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson blasted the White House and its stance on gender affirming/gender reassignment surgeries.  Of course, the White House is a big proponent of life-altering gender surgeries which seems rather devilish to many.  Next, famed economist Peter Navarro says that a ‘perfect storm’ of stagflation is heading our way.   In other news, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush says, ‘it’s right for Governor Greg Abbott to send illegal aliens- what the left euphemistically labels as ‘undocumented migrants- to Washington, D.C., and to other ‘sanctuary locales.’  Finally, in other news Democrat locales would be wise to emulate, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill this morning with which to bolster fatherhood programs across the Sunshine State.
  98. 2022 Monday R: Political News III– Stacey Abrams-backed election law in the Peach State is going to trial.   Meanwhile, in Iowa, a hubbub continues following last night’s ruling by a judge in the state that won’t permit Senator Chuck Grassley’s struggling Democratic challenger- Abby Finkenauer to appear on the state’s Democratic Party primary ballot.  To qualify for the primary ballot, a candidate must have 100 signatures- or more- each from 19 counties to make the grade.  Although the Finkenauer campaign submitted more than 3,500 signatures, she did not get the necessary number to face off against Senator Grassley.  C’ est la vie.  Of the signatures, questions swirled around three of them from two counties.  Go figure.  Stop registering illegal aliens.
  99. 2022 Monday S: Political News IV– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says the White House is being mum on its plans with which to shove portions of the Build Back Better plan through to fruition.  We can only speculate what other evil crap the administration is attempting to insert into this doomed-to-fail bill.  Election Day is fast approaching and contrary to what many progressives are trumpeting, not every Democrat wants to lose his or her seat supporting this crumbling ‘signature package.’
  100. 2022 Monday T: Second Amendment News– The National Rifle Association has slammed President Joseph R. Biden’s new executive orders on the evil ‘ghost guns.’  Since before the founding of the country, Americans have made their own firearms and ammunition and even though President Biden believes he has a winner with this issue, Americans will continue making their own guns and crafting their own ammunition.  It is what free people in a free country do.  We are not communist China yet nor if older Americans continue defending freedom from the new generation of indoctrinated losers, we will continue doing this until the day we die.
  101. 2022 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #974 with a jackpot of $85 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 24, 31, 34, and Power 04.  Out of 62,911 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $33,732.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every artist releases a ‘20th Century Masters,’ i.e., best of compilation, and Robbie Robertson is no different.  We have a collection of the guitarist’s most beloved tunes all in one place so what do you have to lose?  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

  48. 2003 Thursday: As Iraq continues to collapse, U.S. Special Forces and Kurdish troops enter the strategic city of Kirkuk and meet minimal resistance.  However, the U.S. must agree with the Turks that Kurds cannot be allowed to hold the city seeing as how it’s close to their country and Turks and Kurds hate one another.
  49. 2004 Saturday: According to Al-Jazeera, on the anniversary of the toppling of Iraqi thug dictator Saddam Hussein, heavy fighting rages across the entirety of Iraq with the exception of Kurdish areas.  There, they celebrate the fall of the murderous POS with parties, dancing, festivities, and in one place melt an ice carving of the hated dictator.
  50. 2005 Sunday: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao floats an idea to India, suggesting that the two rivals put past tensions between the two countries behind them and work at pooling resources and talent to become leading IT developers and manufacturers.  Doing so would signify the coming of the Asian Century.  No word from New Delhi.
  51. 2006 Monday: Illegal aliens across the United States take to the streets protesting a new bill, H.R. 4437 which would transform all illegal aliens in the country into felons.  Question: if hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens can pour out of the shadows and roam the streets, why are Border Patrol officers out there scooping them up, putting them in cages, and then deporting them back to whence the f**k they came?  This is what nations that love themselves do.  DO IT NOW.
  52. 2007 Tuesday: The U.S. government authorizes nearly $60 million for the Palestinian Authority.  How about this: how about NOT giving them the money?  They use it to commit terrorist attacks on Israel, not for the betterment of their people.  Elsewhere, all hell is breaking out in Baghdad.  The U.S. and Iraqi forces are fighting terrorists and scumbags and are planning to construct a wall around the Sunni neighborhoods in the capital city seeing as how much of the terrorism is coming from the Shia majority.

  58. 2013 Wednesday: The United States, Jordan, and Canada boycott a meeting of the U.N. General Assembly organized by former Serbian foreign minister, Vuk Jeremic.  Meanwhile, tensions on the Korean Peninsula continue to rise as South Korea and the United States raise threat levels and the People’s Republic of China and North Korea clamp down on border crossings.  This is back when the PRC was sort of working with regional countries and the U.S. to contend with North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
  59. 2014 Thursday: The head of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, announces that his company will begin selling its luxury electric cars in China later this month.  Meanwhile, around Aleppo, Syria, home of ISIS, 88 people die and scores of others are injured when the Syrian air force drops a series of barrel bombs on the city.  This of course drives liberals loony tunes as they think the use of barrel bombs is somehow a horrible thing.  Look, killing people is a horrible thing, what difference does it make if barrel bombs do the killing or President Barack Hussein Obama indiscriminately drones people all over the world sans any type of trial?
  60. 2015 Friday: As ISIS continues spreading terror throughout the Middle East, jihadists in Baghdad carry out a suicide bombing killing several people and wounding loads of others.  It appears that President Barack Obama has no ideas as how to combat this evil scourge of jihad evil.  We say, “Neutron bomb.  Painless.  Simple.  Quick.  Cheap.”
  61. 2016 Sunday: Three bigwigs of the pro-Democracy movement in Hong Kong- Agnes Chow, Nathan Law, and Joseph Wong form a new political movement to fight for the freedom of their fellow Hong Kongese from communist China.  Meanwhile, as the international committee led by U.S. Secretary of State John F. (Flipping) Kerry tries to coerce Iran into making the ‘deal only if they agree to discuss their missile programs,’ Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif says ‘any discussion of his nation’s missile systems will NOT happen.’
  62. 2017 Monday: The 113th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, nominated by President Donald J. Trump, takes his place on the court on this date.  The swearing in ceremony took place at the White House.  Associate Justice would take the place of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia who died last year.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms detain a political activist from Taiwan, Lee Ming-che, claiming he endangered Chi-Com national security along with his wife.  
  63. 2018 Tuesday: So-called “Boy Wonder,” Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, begins testifying before the U.S. Congress regarding data harvesting, lack of privacy for the social media giant’s users, and misuse of said data.   Elsewhere, the Israeli government announces the findings of its investigation into the death of a jihadist on the other side of the Gaza border fence.  A sniper put the thug down- someone identified as a Hamas terrorist- with one shot which is ruled a ‘clean kill.’  However, the soldiers who filmed the incident and then celebrated it are told not to behave like that.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: On this date, one of the most amazing photos to come out of the Event Horizon Telescope depicts a BLACK HOLE in 2017 in galaxy M87, approximately 6.5 billion times the mass of Earth and about 55 million light years distant.  Absolutely amazing!  Elsewhere, anyone on Medicare in the United States has had salespeople calling them up, telling them they are ‘eligible for back braces for their pain.’  All one must do is to give their information to these scoundrels.  Well, the federal government charges 24 scumbags for Medicare fraud, not a good thing, because these people were pushing back braces to many who did not need them and billing the feds for $1.2 billion for not only the back braces but other durable equipment medical devices.   Finally, the 6th U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen left office on this date.  She served under President Donald J. Trump from December 06, 2017, until today.
  65. 2020 Friday: China’s grand gift to the rest of the world, the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis continues claiming lives and ruining economies.  Currently, we have 1,699,632 confirmed cases of this hellacious disease what with 102,734 confirmed deaths and 376,330 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 502,876 confirmed cases what with 18,747 confirmed deaths and another 27,314 confirmed recoveries.   Around the world, pain, suffering, and death continue and it’s all because of two guilty culprits: communist China and the World Health Organization that continues to carry water for the communist nation.  President Trump informed the world today that the United States puts $500 million into the coffers of the corrupt organization every year while the People’s Republic of China puts in a measly $40-50 million per year yet the W.H.O. continues doing Beijing’s bidding.  This will have to change and the only way it will is when the United States returns to the Two-China Policy and recognizes Taiwan as a full member state of the U.N. and gives them back their seat on the Security Council.
  66. 2021 Saturday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden says he is going to maintain the current level of funding for the U.S. military, he is going to funnel it through Pine Island Acquisitions Corporation which is a major lobbying tailor-made for doing Deep State business with the federal government supplying its military needs (and most likely, to re-route money back around to liberal Democrats- the classic money-go-round.  However, what exactly the military is going to do other than to root out conservatism in the ranks is unclear because his Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki declared ‘the Biden administration WON’T confront communist China.’  Why would they?  The Chi-Coms fund the entire Biden clan.   Finally, Joe Biden is going to convene a ‘chip summit’ so we can find a way to eradicate our chip shortage.  Whoa, Joe.
  67. 2021 Saturday A: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, says that Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the border crisis.  He labels it a horrible ‘humanitarian crisis.’   Meanwhile, as this self-inflicted crisis continues, the Biden administration is going to continue housing illegal aliens at hotels in border cities (and elsewhere across the country).  (Note- Chefs Lilah and Itzi says that flights bringing illegals into Honolulu is indeed happening although they are doing their best to keep it quiet.  They say it’s the same as when President Obama was in office and states were giving their homeless populations one-way tickets to the islands.  NOT good).  
  68. 2021 Saturday B: JUDICIAL SYSTEM NEWS– following U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer saying yesterday that ‘packing the court is not the way to go,’ tens of thousands of raving lunatic leftists are out in the streets demanding that Justice Breyer step down now.  This is what you get when you coddle at least two generations by not giving them the belt across their asses when they cause problems as kids- you get a bunch of whiny, sniveling young people who behave like spoiled brats.  You know what Ichabod Crane said in “The Headless Horseman”- ‘spare the rod and spoil the child.’  Folks, instead of these worthless c***suckers canceling us, how about we cancel the living Bejeezus out of them?  It’s US or THEM.  Keep your seat, Justice Breyer, we may not agree with you on much, but this is flipping crazy.  In other court news, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s Gestapo-like order preventing home Bible study during the pandemic.  When can we recall this POS?  (Note- Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the libs on the court.  What a mistake he was).  In other news, famed legal scholar and professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV that the Dems are indeed doing their best to ‘stack the court.’
  69. 2021 Saturday C: 2020 ELECTION FRAUD, CORRUPTION, THEFT, AND FOREIGN INTERFERENCE NEWS– Governor Christopher T. Sununu, R-N.H., says he will sign an order to look into the voting machines used in the last election.  Word has it they flipped a lot of GOP votes to Democrats.  Is it not amazing how this just seemed to happen across the country?  And they claim there was NO election interference.   Elsewhere, after being ordered to remove the dead voters from the state’s voter rolls due to a court order, Pennsylvania announces they are going to clean up their voter rolls.  Isn’t this amazing, too, how when courts intervene on behalf of the voters, things start getting cleaned up?  NO wonder they still have “Fort Pelosi” up in Washington, D.C.   (Note- although the ‘un-elected governor of Georgia- Stacey Abrams once supported similar laws to what Georgia now has, she no longer does.  Too bad).
  70. 2021 Saturday D: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– Iranian leadership was all excited today touring a new centrifuge facility that will enrich uranium 50-times faster than they currently are.  Moreover, the good thing about it, it’s all for ‘peaceful purposes’ or so these lying scumbags claim.  Seems about time for another worm infecting their centrifuges to occur.  We know Joe Biden won’t do it so it’s up to the Israelis.  Next, the Chi-Coms have hit Alibaba with a $2.8 billion antitrust suit.  How does this work in a ‘communist country?’  It’s nice they pretend like they have laws when in fact, there is BUT ONE LAW- whatever dictator Xi Jinping says.
  71. 2021 Saturday E: RINO REPUBLICAN NEWS– It would appear that Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell has some residual guilt left from sticking the dagger in President Donald J. Trump’s neck by voting NOT to convict #45 in his second impeachment trial and then saying that ‘Trump was responsible for the False Flag Operation the Dems and their storm-troopers ran on January 06, 2021.’  Senator McConnell says that Joe Biden is ‘caving to the left on packing the U.S. Supreme Court and ending the filibuster.’  His good friend, Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, echoes his boss by ripping the Dems on their scheme to ‘pack the court’ and to ‘end the filibuster.’  (Note- these guys are hoping we will forget their RINO politics and their traitorous behavior towards a president who did what neither of them have ever been able to accomplish: #45 kept his word).   In REAL Republican news, Jason Miller says that ‘Donald Trump is still the head of the GOP no matter how much the RINO scum wants him NOT to be).
  72. 2021 Saturday F: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 135,030,164 confirmed cases, +991,984, 2,920,537  confirmed deaths, +15,983, and 76,746,058 confirmed recoveries, +557,436.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,348,231 confirmed cases, UP 140,461 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,142 confirmed deaths, UP 1,635, and 118,914,896 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.[vi] 
  73. 2021 Saturday G: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 238,599 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned to action following a bout with cancer and reformed his band.  The subsequent release is “The Midnight Ramble Sessions, Volume II” (August 16, 2006).  Joining the drummer/vocalist, were Little Sammy Davis (vocals/harmonica), Larry Campbell  (guitars), Dr. John (pianos), Michael Merritt (bass), and several others.  Davis is the vocalist and front man for the group seeing as how Helm was recovering from throat cancer which is amazing because the band roars through a set of blues tunes that leave one’s head ablaze and ears a-smoking.  Levon manages to do some vocals which is good.  We hope that you will investigate this one to your heart’s content and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and enjoy.  It’s amazing, of that we guarantee.

  69. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden debuted executive actions this morning that he is taking to strip firearms away from the American people.  Most of them are feelgood measures for his whack-a-doodle base but even so, some of them have teeth- if anyone will obey them (which, we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have no intention of doing.  NO one is taking our firearms away, no one).  Next, Joe Biden nominated perhaps the worst person to become head of the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (and Explosives), David Chipman, the dimwit who transformed the debacle at Waco, Texas, into what it became by lying through his teeth about things that SUPPOSEDLY occurred there, but which did not, and which then led to the deaths of mostly women- many of them pregnant- and children.  This was one of the shining events that occurred during the Bill Clinton administration, overseen by Attorney-General Janet Reno.   Congressman Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district says that Chipman is the absolute worst person to head the ATF.
  70. 2021 Thursday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE–  Texas Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, came out today and lit the Biden administration up for the appalling conditions in Border Patrol facilities holding tens of thousands of illegal alien, river-swimming, or fence-jumping invaders.  He condemns the Biden administration for its shocking lack of compassion and sensitivity and demands they close these facilities now which means these people should be loaded aboard empty airliners and dumped back in Guatemala.  Let THEM sort them out seeing as how they are a major starting point for this invasion.  Build the wall and deport them all, now.  Anyhow, Governor Abbott pointed out the human rights abuses such as rampant sexual assaults on women, children, and weaklings as well as shortages of food, medical supplies, clean water, and proper clothing and bedding.  IF these horrendous practices occurred under the Trump administration, President Trump would be visiting Old Sparky but under Joe Biden, “No problem, amigos, no problem”… Finally, people continue asking where the nation’s ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is.  She has been traveling around the country but nowhere near the border.  At least Cuban-born U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is visiting the border today.  Praise the Lord! 
  71. 2021 Thursday B: MASS SHOOTING AND CRIME NEWS–  We learned early today that in Rock Hill, S.C., former NFL player Phillip Adams shot and killed Dr. Robert Lesslie and his wife, Barbara Lesslie along with their two grandchildren- ages 5 and 9- in their home as well as two air conditioning technicians working outside their home.  One of the techs survived and called in for help and when police arrived, they found evidence that led them to the home of Adams’ parents where they encircled the home after getting his mother and father out of the home.  Adams then shot himself.  No one knows why he did what he did.  Later in the day, following Joe Biden’s mumbling stumbling bumbling announcement on various executive actions he is taking to strip guns away from the American people, a mass shooting occurred in Texas.  Like clockwork, in Bryan, Texas, a gunman entered the corporate offices of Kent Moore Cabinets and shot seven people, some of them critically, but none of them dead at the time of this reporting.  Police are purportedly chasing several suspects so we will provide updates as we learn them.
  72. 2021 Thursday C: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The communist Chinese in Beijing warned their stooge- “Pro-China Joe” Biden- today that he had better not boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in their capital city.  We say, “F**k them!  Who do you think you are, you commie bastards?’  Next, the Biden administration announced that it is going to lift ALL sanctions on the crap-hole nation of Iran without seeking anything in return.  Good for you, Joe, good for you. Regarding the Chi-Coms, tech investor Peter Thiel says that ‘Bitcoin’ may very well be a financial tool the communists can use against the United States.  Moving on, France is postponing the French Open to May 30 over fears of COVID-19.  Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘U.S. policy on Russia is both dumb and ineffective.’  This comes after the Biden administration yesterday evening revived the Trump-Russia collusion scam and Russian interference in U.S. elections by announcing he is going to slam Russia with new sanctions for meddling and hacking.  Okay, Joe.
  73. 2021 Thursday D:  NATIONAL POLITICS– Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district has officially announced he is running to become governor of New York.  Next, Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam, D-VA, has officially endorsed former Virginia Democrat governor and bagman for Bill and Hillary Clinton- Terry “the Punk” McAuliffe[vii]– to become governor again.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district has demanded that “Kooky Kamala” Harris attend FBI and CIA intel briefings.   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is nudging Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, GOP, to seek another term by giving him his endorsement.   Meanwhile, in a threat to the Joe Biden agenda, following giving his wife a cushy gig, Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, refuses to allow ‘budget reconciliation’ to be used to pass bills nor will he vote to smack down the Filibuster rule in the U.S. Senate.  God bless you, Senator Manchin.
  74. 2021 Thursday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre says he failed to disclose yacht trips he accepted.  Next, we learned today that the Trump administration tried conducting secret talks in Syria with the goal of freeing American hostages across the Middle East.   Elsewhere, the San Francisco schools system- after spending loads of taxpayer dollars- has decided it will postpone renaming schools named after Americans (or foreigners) who might be RACISTS.    Meanwhile, John Gizzi of Newsmax says that ‘John Boehner,[viii] the former speaker of the House and now a political lobbyist for the Chi-Coms is attacking conservatives while ignoring his own lack of character.’  Ouch.

97. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 07, 2022

2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 NEWS I- A growing number of governors across the United States are making a stand against any suggestion of the Biden administration’s idea of forcing everyone to present COVID-19 vaccine passports to return to normal life. This never happened when homos were running amok, and HIV-AIDS was a true crisis so any suggestion we should have proof of vaccine is a big overstep for government. We are not the flipping Chi-Coms.

  76. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 NEWS I– A growing number of governors across the United States are making a stand against any suggestion of the Biden administration’s idea of forcing everyone to present COVID-19 vaccine passports to return to normal life.  This never happened when homos were running amok, and HIV-AIDS was a true crisis so any suggestion we should have proof of vaccine is a big overstep for government.  We are not the flipping Chi-Coms.   It’s good that Joe Biden is facing major backlash against him and his administration for persisting in this stupidity.  Still, the old coot persists in telling Americans that ‘IF we want to celebrate the Fourth of July, we had better have proof of insurance.’  Wow.  A dictator…Meanwhile, medical professionals are blasting the Centers for Disease Control for being slow to update information regarding the coronavirus.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record companies being what they are- capitalist, money-making entities- and God bless them for that- released Rick Danko’s next album, “Cryin’ Heart Blues” on November 15, 2005.  Rick was a talented musician and a unique vocalist; his style could evoke emotions that could overwhelm his listeners.  The record company culled together some delightful tidbits, live tunes, studio rarities, and other enticing treats and gave them to his fans, sadly well after his demise.  If you love the man, his music, as well as the Band, we hope you will seek this one out, give it a listen if you can and then consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we think you will be glad you did.  Look for it now.

[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[ii] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] We hope to promote the music of the Electric Light Orchestra, the Move, Roy Wood, and Wizzard at some point in the near future.  Please stay tuned.

[vi] A lengthy presentation of YES and its individual members will begin at some point within the next 2-3 years.  Please stay tuned.

[vii] As to when we will promote the music of this commie folk singer- Joan Baez- we hope to do it sometime in the next 30 years.  Please remain alert for the day we do.

[viii] Sadly, we were not as attuned to the sharing of interconnected bands and musicians when we promoted Santana years ago, but we do hope we will be able to promote the music of Journey at some point in the nest 10-12 years.

[ix] When we promote the music of Nirvana, we hope to promote the music of Pearl Jam, the Smashing Pumpkins, Hole, and the Stone Temple Pilots, so make sure you remain attentive for the time we do.  You will be glad you did.

[xi] Listen, moron: the entire Biden administration is built atop a lie.  Everyone now knows that Joe Biden did not win the 2020 presidential election and the longer morons such as yourself continue to talk crap the worse it’s going to be for ALL of you.
