If there is one thing we know, Vladimir Putin’s a thug. Hence, why I say NATO and the European Union must add what’s left of Ukraine and perhaps Georgia, too, to the fold. Otherwise, that troll loping about the Kremlin will return for another bite at the apple either before Joe is gone or whenever our nation has the misfortune to have another Democrat in the White House…

If there is one thing we know, Vladimir Putin’s a thug.  Hence, why I say NATO and the European Union must add what’s left of Ukraine and perhaps Georgia, too, to the fold.  Otherwise, that troll loping about the Kremlin will return for another bite at the apple either before Joe is gone or whenever our nation has the misfortune to have another Democrat in the White House…

  27. 1942 Sunday: Fighting on the Eastern Front continues as the Axis troops launch a major assault against the tractor factory in Stalingrad.  The Germans continue pouring in reinforcements while the crumbling Russian defenders continue trading ground for massive quantities of blood.  Meanwhile, the Luftwaffe continues dropping bombs atop the dying city which instead of providing the German troops aid is actually hindering the conquest.  Rubble fills the streets and gaping bomb craters are everywhere.  
  28. 1943 Monday: The Red Army continues its push to establish bridgeheads across the Dnieper River in the Ukraine.  The Germans continue trying to stop these forays as they learned the lesson the year before in the Stalingrad campaign of not immediately rushing forces to counter them.  The Soviets are like ants, they continue pushing, pushing, and pushing, building up their strength and then with superior numbers begin breakouts.  The Luftwaffe on the Eastern Front is becoming depleted from battle losses.

  51. 2003 Saturday: A Palestinian skank blew herself up inside a restaurant in Haifa, Israel, killing 21 bystanders.  Incidents such as this led to Israel building the walls to protect its people which so far, they have done.

  56. 2011 Tuesday: The U.S. State Department lists ISIS POS thug leader Abu Bakr-al-Baghdadi as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist with a $10 million bounty on his head for information leading to his capture.  In 2019, following the destruction of ISIS by President Donald J. Trump, this criminal piece of dog feces still is on the run.
  57. 2012 Thursday: The FBI claim to have completed their investigation of the 9-11 attack on the Benghazi U.S. Consulate in ONE day.  At the time, everyone was in a state of shock.  However, looking back on the fact that James Comey was the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, it is understandable.  He would do everything to protect his boss, President Barack Hussein Obama.

  62. 2017 Wednesday: In a speech to the Conservative National Conference, British Prime Minister Theresa May goes through hell as her voice goes out, hecklers interrupt, and the flipping stage collapses.   Meanwhile, President Donald J.

  63. 2018 Thursday: In Foxborough, Massachusetts, New England Patriots QB Tom Brady joins an exclusive club of only three quarterbacks to record 500 career touchdown passes with his throw to Josh Gordon in the Pats’ win 38-24 over the visiting Indianapolis Colts.

  65. 2020 Sunday: As of today, the debate between Vice President Mike Pence and the person trying to take his place- Senator Kamala Harris, D-CA, is still on.  Sen. Harris is in Salt Lake City, Utah, undergoing preparations for this crucial matchup.   Meanwhile, German, Swedish, and French labs confirm that the poison used to rub out Putin critic, Alexei Navalny, is indeed the Soviet-era poison, Novichok.  Of course, the Putin regime continues bellowing, “Move on, nothing to see here.”  Elsewhere, Twitter confirms that it will indeed censor tweets calling for the death of President Donald J. Trump.  We shall see.  Speaking of the 45th president, Operation MAGA is underway across the country as Trump family members and supporters begin blitzing the airwaves and the media in a bold and exciting effort to continue the 2020 presidential campaign. 
  66. 2020 Sunday A: We learn that New York City has released at least 70 thugs on a variety of charges three times or more.  We encourage the people of the once-prosperous city to vote out every Democrat they can, this election and beyond.  These people have demonstrated they care little to nothing about the average New Yorker.  Their time is coming and it’s coming soon.  Elsewhere, 53-percent of the population of New Caledonia votes to remain a part of France.
  67. 2020 Sunday B: Pope Francis lays out his leftist political beliefs in a new encyclical “Brothers All,” in which, he says the world needs new politics to address the economic unfairness many nations face.  Apparently, he believes that capitalism is unjust, and that socialism would make more sense, although he does not employ the word.  Still, we know he embraces the doctrine because of the ‘social justice’ BS he is always trying to force on world leaders and on their people.  Why don’t you criticize the Chi-Coms, Pope Francis?   Elsewhere, Pennsylvania Republican Senator Pat Toomey, not up for re-election until 2022, announces that he will not seek another term in office.  Not sure as to why but it’s what he just announced.

  85. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– As Joe Biden’s agenda continues bursting into flames and tumbling off the cliff, Joe Biden plans to meet with equally angry progressive Dems to see if there is some way, they will agree to a lower price tag on all the spending they want to stuff down the throats of U.S. taxpayers.  Meanwhile, as Joe continues crashing into one brick wall after another, he told the ‘Republicans to just get the hell out of the way.’  (It’s not so much the GOP, Joe, it’s the crazies infesting your party like cockroaches a Beijing noodle restaurant).
  86. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is warning their masters in Beijing NOT to continue the provocations with Taiwan.  Over the past few days, the Chi-Coms have been flooding the skies of Taiwan with warplanes in an effort of intimidating them into submission.
  87. 2021 Monday P: Political News I– A new Trafalgar poll reports that 71-percent of the American people do not support the Democrats’ crazy spending plans if it means higher taxes.  Hello!  Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says ‘reconciliation,’ not filibuster, to raise the debt ceiling.
  88. 2021 Monday Q: Social Media News– Facebook has a whistleblower throwing its bigwigs under the bus.  Senator Amy “The Schnoz” Klobuchar, DS-MN, is going to bust the ‘balls’ of this so-called whistleblowers tomorrow to find out the role of the social media giant in the ‘horrific events of January 06, 2021’ at Capitol Hill, i.e., the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION ever run in this country, the one cooked up by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she with the drooping breasts that dangle to her navel.  Shame on these people, do they believe that we are as truly stupid as they make us out to be?
  89. 2021 Monday R: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #893 with a jackpot of $685 million up for grabs: 12, 22, 54, 66, 69, and Powerball 15.  Out of 281,498 winning tickets, ONE person had all five numbers and the Powerball for a prize of $685,000,000.  The winning ticket was sold in the beautiful seaside town of Morro Bay, California, 93442, at the Albertsons on 730 Quintana.
  90. 2022 Tuesday: Observation of the Day– It is extremely tragic to watch the bogus war in Ukraine continue unabated.  Russian dictator Vladimir Putin this past Friday added four seized eastern-and-southern-Ukrainian provinces to the landmass of Russia, all because he claims the citizens of these annexed territories voted overwhelmingly to be included in the Russian Federation.  Everyone understands that this is bullshit and that Putin is not just a thug but a war criminal in need of the gallows- leave his diminutive, deformed corpse for the crows to devour.  My hope is that the Ukrainians will continue to fight and that its people behind the lines will continue to resist.  I hope partisan activity breaks out across not just these territories but in Crimea and that the West continues channeling weapons to Kyiv.  Although Volodymyr Zelensky may be a corrupt, Eastern European thug himself, he deserves war materiel with which to continue beating back the Russian hordes.  It is our hope that Putin’s war machine bleeds itself dry and that the Ukrainians can then begin the arduous process of retaking and holding their territory as if they don’t, every time we have a Democrat in the White House, they will continue to return thus taking more bites at the apple.  Bring them into the European Union now and add them to NATO.  I would also make sure we bring Georgia into the EU at least and at most into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, too.  This is the world in which, we live so let’s make sure we come out on top.  Moses Scharbug III.

[i] 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.

[ii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.

[iii] We feel bad that we did not begin promoting the music of Paul Revere and the Raiders around the time we shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies.  Well, we hope to slip them in sometime within the next 6-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for the time that we do.  You will be glad you did.

  58. 2012 Sunday: Spain announces it expects its debt levels to increase in 2013.  Elsewhere, the ‘religion of peace’ strikes again- this time in Bangladesh.  After a RUMOR hits social media in which, a BUDDHIST man posted a photo supposedly critical of the ‘religion of peace,’ Muslims rush out, burn down four Buddhist temples and at least 15 homes owned by Buddhists.  Folks, when is the ‘religion of peace’ going to undergo a reformation and enter the 21st century?
  59. 2013 Monday: Pope Francis announced during a meeting with cardinals that he would canonize two of his most influential predecessors, John Paul II and John XXIII, the following spring.
  60. 2014 Tuesday: Secret Service Director Julia Pierson testifies in a congressional hearing to investigate the recent intrusion of the White House as well as other security breaches under her leadership; Pierson stated that such incidents would not happen again.
  61. 2015 Wednesday:  In the fight to destroy the Taliban and to aid the Afghan army, the U.S. and Coalition aircraft begin launching airstrikes on Kunduz.  The Afghan government’s counter-offensive against the Islamist scum appeared to be faltering so air support was beefed up to help them in their fight.
  62. 2016 Friday:  The United Nations says that the Syrian city of Aleppo is a “Humanitarian Crisis” as peace talks between the Syrian government, its allies, and the ISIS criminals, falters.  People are being bombed, they’re being strafed, they are starving to death, and disease stalks the weakened among them.  And the U.S. military-industrial complex wants the United States to involve itself even deeper in this quagmire.
  63. 2017 Saturday: The Trump administration’s Health and Human Services Director Tom Price resigns his position today after being blasted and criticized for misusing funds.  No proof is ever offered but you know the libs- they never stop.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is in Beijing ahead of President Trump’s visit to the communist nation.  Elsewhere, Canadian American game show host, Monty Hall of “Let’s Make a Deal” fame dies at age 96.
  64. 2018 Sunday:  The Federal Bureau of Investigation- after being bullied by Democrats- announces that it is expanding its probe into the supposed wrongdoings of U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.  The Dems are trying to smear the stellar judge in their attempt to deny him a seat on the high court and to repel President Donald J. Trump’s second SCOTUS nominee.
  65. 2019 Monday:  As testimony in the growing impeachment inquiry by the Democrats to take out the 45th president, Donald J. Trump tweets that he should be able to ‘meet the so-called whistleblower’ whom most believe is a lying POS.  The Dems will do everything possible to protect his identity, but we know who he is.   Meanwhile, the “Pro-China Joe” Biden 2020 campaign asks the TV networks to stop booking Rudy Giuliani.   They accuse the president’s lawyer of ‘spreading lies about the candidate and his son, Hunter.’  Funny thing is, on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, the U.S. Senate committee investigating the Bidens and their corruption- especially in the Ukraine and in communist China demonstrate that Hunter’s actions were indeed ‘criminal’ and in need of further investigation.  Not looking good for you, Joe…
  66. 2020 Wednesday: Reviews regarding last night’s first 2020 presidential debate continue coming in with most believing that President Trump was debating not one but two people.  Moderator Chris Wallace- who should be stripped of all future debates- did everything he could to help keep “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s head above the roiling waters.  Today, the former VP is on a ‘train tour,’ running from Cleveland, Ohio, to Johnstown, Pennsylvania.  Crowds are incredibly sparse for the stumbling bumbler.  It would appear that in last night’s debate, President Trump utilized the same strategy he employed in his VP debate with Rep. Paul Ryan, R-WI, Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick.  In that ugly 2012 matchup, Biden interrupted, derided, and lampooned Mr. Ryan.  It was ugly, it turned off millions of viewers, but everyone said, “Joe did a hell of a job.”  Whoa.   At least Telemundo, the Spanish language juggernaut in a poll released last night, one we reported, that viewers said Trump won the matchup by an overwhelming 66-percent to 33-percent.  Latinos love their blood sports.  The Atlantic Magazine says the ‘rest of the debates should be canceled.’
  67. 2020 Wednesday A:  In New York City, more than 100,000 mail-in ballots have gone to people with the incorrect information emblazoned on them.  The state says it will make things right; however, what will happen with the messed-up ballots and who will be responsible for their destruction?  Things continue going from bad to worse.   Meanwhile, Glenn Beck reports on his program this morning that in Harris County, Texas, Joe Biden surrogate Dallas Jones was caught red-handed in a scheme to have hirelings fill out more than 700,000 mail-in ballots.  An investigation featuring former federal law enforcement officers busted Jones outright.  We hope this situation can be repaired and that the participants in, yet another fraudulent vote theft shenanigan find themselves busting rocks in Leavenworth, Kansas, for 30 years.
  68. 2020 Wednesday B: Judge Amy Coney Barrett will be meeting with 10 senators on Capitol Hill today even though most Democratic senators are keeping her at arm’s length.   Speaking of Capitol Hill, Lindsey Graham’s Senate committee is grilling fired former FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey virtually today, trying to pull answers from him about the scam of Crossfire Hurricane and the attempt to bring down Donald Trump, both as candidate and as president.  This man must do time in federal prison.  Graham says, ‘what happened at the FBI and the Obama Justice Department is a system failure.’  Elsewhere, the ‘Happiest Place on Earth’- Disneyland- says it will begin laying off 30,000 workers due to the harsh shutdown restrictions imposed upon the entertainment destination by Gov. Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Finally, failed Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer- a woman who keeps her stated in the lockbox while permitting her husband to drive around the state and to take his boat out on whatever lake he chooses- announces that she is extending the CHI-VI lockdown that was set to end tomorrow until at least October 31.  What a pity.
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: A judge in Las Vegas, Nevada, rules that Mandalay Bay Hotel and Resort is liable for the $800 million payout to the victims of the October 31, 2017, mass shooting that occurred on its property.  The shooter, Stephen Paddock, carried load upon load of what turned out to be firearms, ammunition, and surveillance equipment and then began shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival from several adjoining windows 32 floors up.  By the time law enforcement and hotel security got around to storming the hotel room, the damage was done, and the shooter lay dead, slain by his own hand.  Meanwhile, the police chief of Los Angeles, California, says that attacks and assaults on police officers have skyrocketed by 156% from this time in 2019.
  70. 2020 Wednesday D: TV ratings for last night’s first presidential debate are 64 million viewers.  It is interesting to note that the Proud Boys, brought up in last night’s debate by moderator Chris Wallace (a failure and a partisan hack) added Trump’s words to both their logo and t-shirts: “Stand by and stand back.”  No one asks “Pro-China Joe” Biden to disavow Blacks Lives Matter, Resist Fascism, or Antifa.  This leads us to speculate that since the Proud Boys jumped in with the t-shirt, that they are receiving funding from the SAME FINANCIAL SOURCES that are also funding the left-wing groups.  Once again, this confirms to us that the Chi-Coms and their Democratic stooges are the ones funneling money to all these violent groups as it serves their overall purposes: the destabilization of the United States and its institutions.
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: On Neil Cavuto’s show, guest Charlie Gasparino tells Neil that many of his Wall Street friends and colleagues fear substantial changes in tax policy as well as regulations should Joe Biden win in November and has a Democrat House and Senate.  A ‘President Joe Biden’ would return the mandate to the Affordable Care Act which would end full-time employment and return the norm of 28 hours or less per week.   No matter what Dems about say about the humongous economy of the Obama-Biden years, it simply did not exist- Obamacare kept every job ‘part-time’ except for union jobs and they were able to avoid Obamacare costs because the administration gave them carve-outs.   Elsewhere, the Sunday afternoon game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans has been postponed due to a number of Chi-Vi cases among the Titans.  Stay tuned for further developments.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[v]   
  76. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 400,671 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 3,407 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.   
  77. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,632,842 confirmed cases, 69,320 confirmed deaths, and 2,451,046 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,616,524 confirmed cases, 55,009 confirmed deaths, and 2,632,074 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 79,206 confirmed cases, 782 confirmed deaths, and 78,424 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 661,007 confirmed cases, 7,786 confirmed deaths, and 272,064 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Wisconsin: they have 810,164 confirmed cases, 8,888 confirmed deaths, and 801,276 confirmed recoveries.

  80. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.399 per gallon, $3.055 in Florida, $4.080 in Hawaii, and $3.849 in Washington state. [xi]    Let us look at one other Mississippi: $2.818.  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- Norway: $8.013 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,823,035,177,448 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiii]  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 Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, shared the shocking news today that a tidal wave of 120,000 illegal aliens or more are marching north to the U.S.-Mexico border.  Yet, the Biden regime again is going to court to try to counter the U.S. Supreme Court order demanding the reinstatement of President Donald J. Trump’s highly effective “Remain in Mexico Policy.” Still, the Biden regime is doing everything it can to counter any border controls by trying to get an executive border or a bill shoved through that will restrict border apprehensions and expulsions.  Joe wants EVERY ILLEGAL POS to remain in the country.
  82. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Kim Jong Un offered once again to reopen the hotline between North and South Korea while denouncing the ‘hostile actions of the Biden regime.’  Later in the day, the regime celebrated the successful firing of its new antiaircraft missile system.  Meanwhile, on the other side of the globe, a court convicted former French President Nicolas Sarkozy of campaign finance violations.
  83. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– GOP senators have joined forces to draft a bill with which to HALT the use of COVID-19 passports by the feds.  Next, United Airlines fires 593 of its employees today because of their refusal to accept the Chi-Vi vaccination.

  89. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– As Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue plummeting and he is booed at public events, people are gravitating towards the idea that “Kooky Kamala” Harris could be the nation’s next ‘president,’ her poll numbers are beginning to inch up ever so slightly.  Next, an AP-NORC poll shows a deep divide between Americans over Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.  Democrats now love them (whereas last year, they said anyone who received one would have to be a dimwit) whereas Republicans are skeptical.   Adding to Joe’s woes, former Ambassador Nikki Haley said of Joe Biden turning up at the congressional baseball game that feeble old Joe ‘chose baseball over serious work.’ As if that is NOT bad enough for poor old Joe, Rep. Vicky Hartzler, R-MO 4th CD, said of the recent hearings on Capitol Hill in the Senate and House regarding the debacle in Afghanistan, that ‘it’s clear that Joe Biden lied on the troops and the situation.’
  90. 2021 Thursday O: Political News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, is now echoing Joe Biden because she says that the BIG SPENDING BILL will cost the American taxpayers ZERO DOLLARS.  That’s right- ‘Mumbles’ say it will cost NOTHING.  Next, Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st CD, is facing ethics problems of her own (Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC) because of taking expensive gifts and other benefits that a congressional member is forbidden to do.  Add that to Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th CD, and her woes over having committed immigration fraud by marrying her brother, and it would appear that the infamous squad is beginning to come apart at the seams.
  91. 2021 Thursday P: Political News II– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, questioned LinkedIn over its censoring of journalists on behalf of the Chinese Communist Party.  Meanwhile, Special Counsel John Durham announced new subpoenas today for people swept up in the Russian Collusion Scandal, the scheme the Obama regime used to destroy President Trump.  Next, Rep. Jay Obernolte, R-CA 8th CD, told Newsmax today, “Don’t count out Nancy Pelosi’s negotiating skills when it comes to getting the spending bills passed.’
  92. 2021 Thursday Q: U.S. House of Representatives News I– Tensions soared on Capitol Hill today as the Democrats vote to suspend the debt ceiling.  Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, said it’s highly likely that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, will push the vote on the massive spending bill BACK as the old warhorse won’t take anything to the floor unless she has the votes- and the progressives in HER ranks are fighting her tooth and nail.
  93. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Military News– Sadly, a new report says that suicides among U.S. service members jumped by 15-percent in 2020.  Next, the U.S. Marine who famously hoisted the Afghan baby over the wall at Hamid Karzai International Airport back in August and who spoke- for just a moment and did so NOT in uniform- is now under investigation.  L. Cpl. Hunter Clark is being investigated for appearing briefly at a political rally while his superiors- like Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley and Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin- can go political all the time, he faces possible disciplinary actions.  Perhaps boneheaded actions such as this could explain why suicides in the U.S. military have gone way UP.  Shame on the leaders, shame.  Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says of Chairman Milley that he should have spent more time on Afghanistan and communist China policies than on politics.  Rep. Scott DesJarlais, R-TN 4th CD says, ‘there’s a lot of finger-pointing going on regarding the mess in Afghanistan.’
  94. 2021 Thursday S: Fake News I– ABC News is being slammed for having selectively edited an interview with former President Barack Obama when he said- more or less- that a country cannot survive without borders.  ABC News cut out all comments made by the 44th president regarding the right of the United States to determine who comes in and who does not.  Is there a breach between Joe Biden and his former boss?   Next, CNN finally steps up and admits that the U.S. Border Patrol’s mounted officers were not whipping the poor HAITIAN INVADERS after lying for an entire week about it.
  95. 2021 Thursday T: Sports News I– Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3-0) at the Cincinnati Bengals (2-1-0).  The Bengals pulled it out with a field goal beating the Jaguars by a final score of 24-21.  Wow.  We thought the Jags were on the way to their first victory.
  96. 2022 Friday: Observation of the Day As you know, this past Wednesday, the FINAL installment of the January 6 Select House Committee came and went without much import.  These people are so bitter, so demented, and so insane that they think if they keep swinging away at the cast iron Donald J. Trump pinata, that somehow the viewers will say, “Wow.  They really do have something.”  Folks, they don’t have crap.  They can show ‘new video footage’ just as they can show ‘new emails and text messages.’  Oh, boy, we can show you far more because from the video footage we’ve seen on Newsmax, One America News, and even Fox News Channel, it sure looks like all manner of criminality was occurring on the side of the Capitol Hill Police and not the Trump supporters.  I, like most of the rest of my colleagues understand that what we saw on January 6, 2021, looked nothing like Trump supporters but a well-orchestrated mob of Antifa thugs and BLM garbage.  Swirling flags, people dressed in black, people climbing up the sides of the Capitol Building, cops standing idly by or briskly waving in the mob.  They cannot clean this up nor can they convince anyone that what we witnessed that day is different that what we saw.  We know what we saw- we saw an orchestrated coup in the manner of what Erdogan did in Turkey a few years back.  It’s all smoke and mirrors and we all understand that.  Good riddance to the J6 Committee.  I hope they burn in hell.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

  42. 2001 Sunday: President George W. Bush, speaking on the South Lawn of the White House, said there was “no question” Osama bin Laden and his followers were prime suspects in the Sept. 11 Islamist terrorist attacks; Bush pledged the government would “find them, get them running and hunt them down.”

  46. 2007 Sunday: O.J. Simpson undergoes arrest in the alleged armed robbery of sports memorabilia collectors in Las Vegas.

Elsewhere, in Burkina Faso, security guards launch a coup taking President Michel Kafando and other ranking government officials into custody.
  52. 2016 Friday: Democracy Now reports that Donald Trump continues to dis President Barack Hussein Obama by suggesting that the 44th president was not born in the United States. Folks, millions of Americans, and millions more around the planet do not believe Obama[v] was born in the U.S. so WTF? Meanwhile, following a campaign rally in North Carolina the previous day, Hillary Clinton minimizes her public appearances. What is wrong with this woman?
  53. 2017 Saturday: Tropical Storm Maria, which would batter the Caribbean as a powerful hurricane, formed in the Atlantic. Elsewhere, California lawmakers voted to move the state’s presidential primary up by about three months to March, a move that would force candidates to mount expensive campaigns earlier.
  54. 2018 Sunday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes sets an NFL record with 10 touchdown passes in the first two games of the regular season, lighting up the Steelers’ secondary with six touchdown passes for a road win of 42-37. Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that potential U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh committed sexual assault in the 1980s when he was a young man, charges since proven to be FALSE.   Finally, in London, England, Maartin Allcock- longtime member of Fairport Convention[vi] (guitars, keyboards, violins, vocals, bass guitars, and pipes)- succumbs to liver cancer at age 61.
  55. 2019 Monday:  The New York Times publishes a story in which, it charges the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as being the most expensive in the world that each prisoner costs the taxpayers $13 million annually. Meanwhile, On This Day reports that the personal information of every citizen in Ecuador was found online on an unsecured server. Go figure.
  56. 2020 Wednesday: Warned ahead of time that his book about his time in the Trump administration contained classified information, former National Security Advisor John Bolton finds himself- along with his publisher and support staff- finds himself under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice. We told you so, John! Meanwhile, America’s insurance companies announce that this year’s ongoing ‘peaceful protests,’ aka rioting, looting, arson, rape, and murder- will be the costliest in U.S. history, claims coming in between $1-2 billion. Thank you, Democrats, thank you, Marxist-Socialist thugs. Elsewhere, pot-smoking New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- struggling to remain lucid- announces that HE and his mayoral staff of at least 500 workers will go on furlough for two weeks, beginning in October. Dude, you do nothing anyway but thanks for allowing the city to hold onto your $250,000 annual salary.
  57. 2020 Wednesday A: In Austin, Texas, two construction cranes collide into one another killing no one but injuring at least 22 people on the ground. Illegal aliens at the controls? It is Texas, after all. Meanwhile, Hurricane Sally, a Cat 1 storm, continues assaulting the coastlines of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. Rains are heavy, storm surges strong, and flooding rampant. Elsewhere, NFL ratings are in a nosedive, the opening week’s ratings coming in with a 20-percent or more drop in viewership. Every game save the New Orleans Saints-Tampa Bay Buccaneers was below normal. Don’t expect it to get any better anytime soon, the league’s owners MUST- we repeat, MUST- terminate the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell and send this virtue-signaling POS packing and then must regain control of the players and enforce the rules. You remember ratings were DOWN in 2016 and were it not for Donald Trump, they would have continued tanking. This is your second chance, NFL team owners, and if you blow it this time, we expect America’s favorite sport will be as popular as midget mud wrestling. Don’t blow it. Speaking of football, the BIG 10 says it is going to return to playing games. Congratulations!
  58. 2020 Wednesday B: Senate Minority Leader and knuckle-dragger Sen. Chuck Schumer wants the head of Health and Human Services boss Alex Azar’s head over some bogus charge concerning the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever Bat Flu. Chuck- STFU. Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics polling average shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden with a lead of 49-percent to 44.7-percent over Trump. Wow. You go, Joe, you go! Next, along the west coast, out-of-control wildfires continue to burn acres and take lives yet in our northern neighbor, Canada, the wildfire season is way, way down thanks to proper forest management. Democrats do NOT think we won’t remember who is responsible for all the ills come November or in November 2022, November 2024 and onward. YOU will pay. Finally, last night, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel had Chinese Virus Crisis whistleblower, Dr. Li-Meng Yan on his program and she told the host that Beijing knew the facts concerning the Wuhan Flu and that they INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED IT TO ESCAPE. It is interesting to note that famed bastion of free speech, Twitter (yeah, right), silenced the doctor’s account on September 15. My, my, me!
  59. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee has issued subpoenas to former CIA director John Brennan, former National Security advisor James Clapper, and former FBI director James “The Saint” Comey. Good. Bring them in and bust their balls on live TV! Elsewhere, radio talk show king, Rush Limbaugh, reports today on his program that new polling shows that in strife-torn cities and towns across the country, voters favor Donald Trump by a 2-1 margin in November. Ooops! Not good for the Democrats!
  60. 2020 Wednesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,689,922 confirmed cases, UP by 281,498 cases, 937,543 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,376 deaths, and 20,152,872 confirmed recoveries, UP by 201,786 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,704,125 confirmed cases, UP by 29,165 new cases, 199,297 confirmed deaths, UP by 912 new deaths, and 3,636,578 confirmed recoveries, UP by 21,091 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers). Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 170,465 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 122,785 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Wednesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 771,288 confirmed cases, 14,648 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,951 confirmed cases, 100 confirmed deaths, and 3,885 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 84,320 confirmed cases, 2,107 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let’s take a look at one more state, Idaho: 35,984 confirmed number of cases, 420 confirmed deaths, but no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Brad Little for acting like a Democrat and remaining mum on this figure.
  62. 2020 Wednesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,032.38, UP 36.78 points (+0.13%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,050.47, DOWN 139.85 points (-1.25%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,385.49, DOWN 15.71 points (-0.46%). The price of GOLD is $1,967.20 per troy oz., -3.30 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $27.32 per troy ounce, -0.156 (-0.57%). The price of PLATINUM is $972.80 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.07%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, 0.00 (0.00%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,399.00 per troy oz, -7.50 (-0.31%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.17 per barrel, +0.01 (+0.02%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.75 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.03.
  63. 2020 Wednesday G:  President Donald J. Trump- speaking from the White House today- said that he believes a vaccine will be available to combat the Wuhan Virus sometime in October. Earlier in the day, CDC Director Robert Redfield said that ‘masks are good’ and that ‘he was not as optimistic about a vaccine before late 2021.’  We shall see. However, Dr. Scott Atlas says 100 million doses should be available by the end of 2020. Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says his legal advisors have told him that he could probably issue a nationwide mask mandate via executive order. Joe: NOT enough prisons to hold everyone who will not obey the bull crap order. Better to make hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, available to ALL Americans.
  64. 2020 Wednesday H: Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice charges five Chi-Com hackers with attempting to hack into more than 100 sites including social media and government. Currently, law enforcement is tracking these scalawags down. Next, President Trump reverses himself from an earlier stance and says that limited briefings on U.S. elections security will be provided to key members of Congress. As everyone knows, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, the Iranians, the Cubans, the North Koreans, the Venezuelans, everyone with an ax to grind against the U.S. is going to attempt changing U.S. election results in November as they always do. When Barack Hussein Obama was president, he said influencing an election one way or another was nearly impossible so why would things be any different now?
  65. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,764,447 confirmed cases, +614,296, 4,681,587 confirmed deaths, +10,187 and 204,406,238 confirmed recoveries, +579,782. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,618,589 confirmed cases, UP 183,742 from yesterday’s reporting, 686,896 confirmed deaths, UP 2,324, [vii] and 32,324,091 confirmed recoveries, UP 79,598.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 368,442 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 35,636 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiii]        
  70. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.390 per gallon, $3.096 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.872 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Georgia: $2.977.  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- Germany: $6.872 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,768,967,941,690 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  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 Brazil, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland with $256 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 175 since Joe Biden’s earpiece appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be ‘border czar’ and Day No. 82 since her sole visit to the region.  Next, here are stats from One America News for the border calamity.  We begin with the Cost for just this day of caring for the denizens of the Third World: $522,488,704.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, yet it’s going to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, here is the cost for this year of caring for this human fecal matter: $283,262,287,872.  Incredible, absolutely incredible.  Next, here is the estimate for the numbers of illegal alien trash that has swept across the U.S.-Mexico border this year: 2,903,211.  Wow.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE (LOW) estimate of border-jumpers living within the country now: 36,903,212.  Note- since 2009, we have placed the actual number back then at around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number is closer to 85-110 million. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The Department of Homeland Security watchdog says that the ‘failure to screen illegal aliens along the border for COVID-19- and other diseases- is putting employees and American towns and cities at risk.’  Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that the Biden-Harris regime are responsible for the 317-percent increase on illegal alien garbage pouring across the southern border.  Meanwhile, in Texas, 123 landowners along the border in Texas are allowing the state to erect border fencing on their properties.  Good for you.  In other border news, every day, 4,000 or more illegal aliens show up under a bridge between Texas and Mexico.  Currently, there are 8,000-10,000 illegals waiting beneath the bridge for the Border Patrol to show up and process them.  Fox News has been flying drones around the bridge to show the environmental disaster of all the urine, fecal matter, and disease swirling around beneath the bridge.  That is, until late today when the FAA banned Fox from flying any more flights in the area.
  73. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Following yesterday’s announcement by the Biden regime and leftist leaders in Australia- Prime Minister Scott Morrison- and in England- Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson regarding the three countries’ new alliance with which to give Australia nuclear-powered submarines, France became angry as they were not consulted seeing as how they are also involved in the Indo-Pacific Region.  Moron U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken is now trying to pacify and coddle hurt Gallic feelings.  We thought the Biden regime was supposed to be ‘grownups in the room’ and that everything was ‘going to get back to normal’ with this Chi-Com stooge in the White House.  Finally, Barack Hussein Obama gives Justin Trudeau his endorsement in Canada’s upcoming election.  Loser.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News-(1) Pfizer $44.47 (2) AstraZeneca $56.60 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.22 (4) BioNTech $372.65 (5) Moderna $440.65.

  78. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden News I– As various state governments, companies, and businesses continue fighting the unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandates, Joe Biden is bringing in representatives from Disney and Microsoft so the old fogey can try to break their balls on the topic of vaccine mandates.  Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee says, “NO” to vaccine mandates.   Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, demands to see ‘evidence’ from Joe Biden’s inconclusive Chi-Com Virus origins report (seeing as how “Pro-China Joe” is trying to protect his paymasters in Beijing).  Next, following tweets saying ‘think for yourself’ from entertainer Nikki Minaj, the White House is dangling a phone call with her so they can twist her arm into urging her 22 million followers to rush out and get these bogus vaccines.   Don’t take it, Ms. Minaj.
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– The blows continue hammering the fraudulent Joe Biden regime as first, 24 GOP state attorneys general threaten the regime with lawsuits over its mandate forcing Americans within their states to get inoculated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu while leaving illegal aliens to do whatever the heck they want.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, told the Biden regime today, “See you in court” over the mandate.  As if that is not bad enough, Joe Biden laid out today a plan with which to tax the rich.  He claims the wealthy do not pay ‘their fair share’ when in fact, the top one percent pays 50-percent of all taxes while the bottom 50-percent and less pay little to no taxes other than sales taxes and SALT.  Most of them get their taxes back via tax refunds so this bull crap that the upper classes pay no taxes is little more than crap.  Meanwhile, in another blow to feeble Joe Biden, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, continues- with Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA- to hold out against this bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Meanwhile, racist Virginia Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam says he ’supports Joe Biden’s tax hikes.’
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. government is moving to block the agreed-upon Purdue Pharma settlement resulting from their hand in the ongoing opioid crisis.  Next, the Biden regime is praising the Fox News Channel for having nearly 90-percent of its employees vaccinated for the Kung Flu and for ordering weekly testing of ALL personnel.  What a load of crap, FNC has become a left-wing outlet.  How sad.  Finally, polls are showing that Joe Biden is facing an uphill battle to win a second term in 2024.  (Note- how many believe this man is going to make it to 2024?  What is with all these coughing fits of his?)
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– We expect that Nancy Pelosi’s hirelings, i.e., FBI informants, paid Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs, and other sundry garbage are going to ignite another FALSE FLAG OPERATION on Saturday at the Justice for the January 6, 2021, political prisoners languishing in the D.C. gulags.  The TSA is already tightening security at regional airports in case Marxists begin causing trouble.  This sounds like yet another attempt from start to finish to tarnish Trump supporters by setting off yet another riot.  This will allow House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to put up Fort Pelosi once again and to keep it standing.  Meanwhile, Aaron Babbitt, widower of Ashli Babbitt, is urging there be NO violence at Saturdays “Justice for J6 Rally” at the U.S. Capitol.  Mr. Babbitt, NO Trump supporter, or defender of Americans’ civil rights will cause violence but all the stooges on the pay of the FBI and/or Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi most assuredly are going to cause violence.  Finally, in other fascinating news related to the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, while Roger Stone was giving a radio interview, process servers showed up and served him live on air with papers related to the events of that day.  Wow.
  82. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News I– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, told Newsmax that IF what is being alleged about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, the scumbag could have triggered a nuclear war between the United States and communist China.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich of the AICPENDBLOG.COM said on her Twitter page a few days ago that Gen. Milley should be court martialed, stripped of rank, led up the 13 steps to the gallows, have the black bag placed over his head, the noose tightened around his neck, and then have the trapdoor beneath his feet dropped open.  He should also be fed to the crows. 
  83. 2021 Thursday R: Political News II– Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that disgraced traitor General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley violated the chain of command via circumventing it in his communicating with the Chi-Coms.  Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 1st congressional district, says that ‘General Milley has clearly violated the Logan Act’ and should undergo prosecution for it.  Rep. Chris Stewart, R-UT 2nd congressional district, says that ‘it’s stunning how General Milley bypassed civilian leaders’ including the President and the then-Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, the latter of whom said he ‘did NOT okay the chairman’s calls to his Chi-Com ‘opposite.’  Finally, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says the ‘only winner in Joe Biden’s tax increases is the communist Chinese.’
  84. 2021 Thursday S: Federal and State Court News– A federal court has blocked the expulsion of illegal alien families under a Trump-era order.   Another judge nixes the Department of Justice bid to quash the Lone Star State’s new ban on abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.  Hearings are set for October 1.
  85. 2021 Thursday T: Sports News I– Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the New York Giants (0-1) and the Washington Football Team aka the Redskins.  The Redskins won 30-29 in the last couple of seconds.  Wow.
  86. 2022 Friday:  Observation of the Day– Watching the disaster befall Vladimir Putin in Ukraine must be akin to how our parents and grandparents viewed hapless Il Duce Benito Mussolini’s disasters in Albania, Greece, and in North Africa during World War II- a total Schmeckel to be sure, all schlong and NO balls.  His main ally- Xi Jinping of communist China must be holding his feverish, sweaty head in both hands much like Der Fuhrer Adolf Hitler did when he realized that he had to either ‘fish’ or ‘cut bait.’  In Hitler’s case, he could or would not ‘cut bait’ and thus rushed to the side of his beleaguered ally much to his eventual destruction.  Putin is NO Josef Stalin- perhaps he would like to be- but he’s demonstrated that he is a total flop at motivating his soldiers to fight an unpopular war on foreign soil which is the BIG DISTINCTION in this little melodrama.  The Russian people have no desire to fight a foreign war even in a country next door and thus as the Ukrainians continue kicking butts and taking numbers, Russian soldiers are throwing down their arms and raising their hands in surrender- “NO MÁS” as boxer Roberto “Manos de Piedra” Duran proclaimed when “Sugar Ray” Leonard was kicking his ass.  So many Russian soldiers are surrendering that Putin cannot eradicate all of their families so the only question remaining is WHEN will one of his adjutants stride up behind him and cap him?  If it has not happened by the time this post goes live, it should and hopefully will soon as this loser deserves NOTHING less.  Besides, where is the United Nations?  I know my colleagues have raised this question and so far, they are nowhere to be seen.  Time to boot the U.N. out of the U.S. now.  Let me know YOUR opinion- Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick was their most successful to date: “Dream Police” (September 21, 1979).  Although some critics panned the album, the LP was smoking hot with the underlying theme of jackbooted thugs penetrating the dreams of sleepers and monitoring them.  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), as well as two accompanying musicians: Jai Winding (pianos, organs, synthesizers, keyboards), and Steve Lukather (guitar on one song).  The tunes rock from the opening track to the very last notes.  The songs include (1) “Dream Police” (2) “Way of the World” (3) “The House is Rocking (with Domestic Problems),” the astounding (4) “Gonna Raise Hell” (5)  “I’ll Be With You Tonight,” the absolutely lovely (6) “Voices” to (7)  “Writing on the Wall” (8) “I Know What I Want” to (9) “Need Your Love.”  This is an album every fan of the band and of rock-and-roll must own.  We love it, you will love it, everyone will love it.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

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

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

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

[iv] 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.

[v] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[vi] We promoted the music of not only Fairport Convention beginning on Monday, October 04, 2021, through Sunday, February 27, 2022, but also that of Richard and Linda Thompson, Fotheringay, Sandy Denny, Simon Nichol, and almost anyone else connected to this legendary band.

223. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 2022

If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise. The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out. Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.

  51. 2019 Sunday:  The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend.  None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement, they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety.  Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
  52. 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it is NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly).  She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee.  It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, since dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India.  There you go.  If we, were you, Joe, we would sleep with one eye open from this point onward?  
  53. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02.  She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off one hundred officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it.

[xiv]  
  58. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 316,875 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 87,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xx]        
  62. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.393 per gallon, $3.017 in Florida, $4.095 in Hawaii, and $3.878 in Washington state. [xxi]    Let us look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.931.  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- Northern Macedonia: $5.194 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,630,008,130,917 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  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 Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  63. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,303,378.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,724,395,892.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,497,274.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,497,419. [xxiv]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).[xxv]
  64. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea says that the United States is failing to improve relations between the two countries.  Meanwhile, the Taliban conquer their eighth provincial capital in Afghanistan.  Many believe that Kabul will implode within three months.  Joe Biden’s mouthpiece, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, says that Joe ‘does not believe the collapse of Afghanistan is inevitable’ yet it will happen because of the way regime leader Biden conducted the pull-out.  Elsewhere, for some unknown reason, the U.S. State Department is sending $50 million to totalitarian Myanmar ostensibly to help around 700,000 people address COVID-19 concerns.  Why aren’t the Chi-Coms helping their fellow thugs?
  65. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The COVID-19 Nazis are at it again: YouTube has suspended the account of Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, over the bold senator’s recent criticisms of mask and vaccine mandates.  Speaking of mandates, drooling Joe Biden says (or his earpiece says) that HE will overrule like God on High bans on mask wearing in public schools.  Go for it, Joe, go for it.  Next, the Pentagon says that ‘most troops will respond positively to being compelled to get Chi-Vi vaccines.’  Moving on, the FDA is seeking clearance to mandate a third Chi-Vi vaccine injection for transplant patients.
  66. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke led tens of thousands of Wisconsinites in demanding an audit of the 2020 Presidential and national elections.  Across the nation, more people are standing up demanding that their state’s 2020 Election results undergo a forensic audit.  At Sioux City, South Dakota, as Mike Lindell and his patriotic colleagues were producing ream after ream after ream of evidence, he discovered live on air that a federal judge was going to allow the Dominion Voting Systems multiple lawsuits to proceed against the pillow magnate and his allies.  It is clear from listening to the two days so far that the 2020 Elections a cabal of rat-eating Chi-Com scum, Democratic-Socialists, and their obsequious RINO allies manipulated the elections to their desire if not actively reversed the results.  The time is coming, and it is coming soon when all of this will find its way into the courts.  The Department of Homeland Security is warning local police department to keep an eye out for election deniers.
  67. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden News I– Flipflopping from yesterday, slobbering old Joe Biden supports New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s resignation over his obsessive grabbing, fondling, and kissing of unwilling women and men.  Joe, they will be coming for YOU next, you old Cho-Mo.  (Speaking of “Killer” Cuomo, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, calls for the arrest and prosecution of the devious governor once he is out of office.  In other Cuomo news, his ex, Sandra Lee, feels betrayed that the groper took credit for granting homosexual marriage rights in the Empire State.  Apparently, she twisted him by the gonads to do this.
  68. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– The U.S. Senate passed the massive $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that will further impoverish the United States while stuffing massive amounts of cash into the pockets of Democrats, their sycophant RINO allies, and labor unions while everyone else will suffer.   Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, blasted the Democrats’ reckless ‘tax and spend’ policies.  He ripped into the scurrilous Democrats moments before the passage of the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill of which ONLY seven percent is ‘infrastructure.’  The rest is free pork to leftwing locales, liberal politicians, and of course the omnipresent Chi-Coms.  (The Republicans are telling the Democrats to ‘go it alone’ on raising the debt ceiling).  However, the Senate passed a GOP-led amendment that prohibits government from using federal funds to promote Critical (Criminal) Race Theory in government and in education.  Unfortunately, the Democrats can always remove or negate the amendment later like they almost always do when it comes to the horror of abortion.   Finally, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, voted against the ‘infrastructure bill.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, endorsed Ohio GOP Senate candidate and author J.D. Vance in the race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Rob Portman.   In other political news, former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos says she will NOT seek the governorship of Michigan in 2022.  In other news, the speaker of the Texas state house signed arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats who are holding up progress.  Meanwhile, longtime Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district, says he will not seek re-election.  He has served the citizens of his district since 1997. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– A gunowners rights group is fighting for the right to open carry firearms at the Minnesota State Fair.  Speaking of Second Amendment rights, President Donald J. Trump is congratulating Governor Mike Parson, R-MO, for pardoning the gun-wielding couple who defended their home in last year’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests.  Leftwing trash brazenly targeted Mark and Patricia McCloskey in their front yard.  The couple stood by armed to the teeth while the mob seethed about them in the street threatening to murder them, rape Patricia McCloskey, kill the family pets, and to burn their home down in the private community.
  71. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News IV– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her Squad-backed group are hailing cop killers.  What is wrong with these leftist skanks?  Strip these hateful skanks of their protection squads and let them fend for themselves.
  72. 2021 Wednesday O: California State News– Oakland, California, city officials are calling on Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to declare a state of emergency over rising violent crime rates across the city.  These people are Democrats!
  73. 2021 Wednesday P: Texas State News– Texas counties have won court orders blocking Governor Greg Abbott’s mask ban mandates.  They want masks.  Governor Abbott also fired a shot across the bow of the tranny movement by comparing gender transformation surgeries for children to be child abuse.
  74. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3585 what with a $7 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 12, 21, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 89,125 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,064 apiece.    Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #871 with a jackpot of $241 million up for grabs: 12, 18, 20, 29, 30, and Powerball 16.  Out of 92,051 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but no Powerball for a prize of $4,4772,553.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Temecula, CA 92592.
  75. 2021 Wednesday R: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– In his hometown of Akron, Ohio, heavyweight boxer Michael “Dynamite” Dokes dies at age 54, one day after his birthday.  Over the course of his pro career, he held numerous titles and amassed a record of 61 fights, 53 wins (33 KOs), 6 losses, and 2 draws.
  76. 2021 Wednesday S: The Wrap-Up– We learned today that the Biden regime is begging OPEC and associated nations to increase oil production so gasoline prices within the United States will drop.  Folks, didn’t this stumblebum bozo clamp down on virtually every fossil fuel production project that he could within the United States so he could usher in a brave new era of solar panels and wind energy?  Whether we produce our own oil supplies or import them, we are still burning the same amount of oil.  If we produce it, we are energy independent and if we import it and rely on those sources, we sure as hell are not.  Friends, this is frigging insane and the sooner the courts begin hearing the election fraud cases on merit, the sooner we might decapitate this faux regime.  We are Americans, we are free people, and we are not going to put up with this bullshit.  NOT threatening any violence upon anyone, just saying.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  77. 2022 Thursday: The next three months are going to be a dangerous time for the American people as the closer Election Day draws near, the more desperate the Biden regime and its Joestapo thugs will become.  They thought sending the Joestapo down to Mar-a-Lago was going to be the magic bullet, yet, the bullet had the opposite effect, people are growing angrier by the minute.  As a former Democrat, I KNOW Democrats, many Democrats in fact, and they are telling me that this ‘ain’t good, Fritz, it ain’t good.’  People are wary of what is happening to our country and whether one likes Donald Trump, or they do not, most can agree on one thing: thanks to him, we are now 100-percent aware as to the existence of the Deep State and most everyone will do everything possible to DESTROY IT.  We elect our leaders, and the bureaucrats are obligated to follow their directions.  If they don’t like it, they can frigging quit.  It is not up to scum such as James Clapper, that fat pig, John Brennan, that deviant POS James Comey, and the rest of the inbred political hacks scattered throughout government to topple elected leaders.  If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise.  The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out.  Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.  It has NEVER been clearer than it is now.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Today’s album is the next studio album by Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, his second collaboration with the Disney Corporation- “In the Key of Disney”- which came out on October 25, 2011.  Disney was NOT yet WOKE like they would be a decade later which is why this album makes it into our presentation.  Brian ‘reimagines’ the Disney movie classics of the day in a way in which, only he can.  You have remakes of many tunes from various feature animated films whether it be “The Lion King,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Toy Story,” and loads of others well before everything became transgender, gay, lesbo, homo, you name it, all the devious, sick shit Disney now stands for.  Alas, it is what it is, we hope you seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in music and give it a listen.  Perhaps, you might like it.  Enjoy.

  59. 2020 Saturday A: Protests continue around the nation over the death of George Floyd this past Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The night before, extremely violent protests left many cities little more than moonscapes with stores burnt down, the husks of cars littering the streets.  As day progressed, more and more protesters and rioters returned to the streets and began going at it again.  There can be NO question that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party via funding and resources because the level of coordination for the conflagrations around the country is beyond most liberal losers to pull off on their own.  We believe that President Trump must rebuff Beijing every day and tell them, “YOU aren’t getting away with this!”  Free Hong Kong!  Free Taiwan!  Free Macau!  Free Tibet!  Now, for the Wuhan Bat Flu statistics.  Here we go:
  60. 2020 Saturday B: The Chinese Virus continues flowing around the world but with the protests raging in the streets of America, no one seems much concerned.  Many aren’t wearing masks.  Here are the global stats for today: 6,054,187 confirmed cases, 368,711 confirmed deaths, but 2,562,191 confirmed recoveries which far outpaces the number of deaths.  Excellent.  Here are the stats for the United States: 1,805,745 confirmed cases, 105,159 confirmed deaths, but 390,404 confirmed recoveries which would be much higher if Blue State governors were honest and would share those numbers.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 108,878 confirmed cases, 4,060 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION yet again of confirmed recoveries.  Governor Gavin Newsom, get with it and share those numbers, you worthless POS.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 604 confirmed recoveries which is extremely good.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 21,288 confirmed cases, 1,118 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Gov. Jay Inslee plays the same brand of deceptive liberal politics and won’t share honest statistics.  Shame on him!  Shame on Gov. Newsom!  Recall BOTH of them.
  61. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 171,006,181 confirmed cases, +388,054, 3,556,019  confirmed deaths, +7,837 and 153,278,160 confirmed recoveries, +52,339.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,042,922 confirmed cases, UP 7,604 from yesterday’s reporting, 609,544 confirmed deaths, UP 124,[vi] and 27,840,817 confirmed recoveries, UP 21,856.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vii]  
  62. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 291,598 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 168,011 deaths  
  63. 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: 3,789,318 confirmed cases, 63,245 confirmed deaths, and 2,054,021 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,320,818 confirmed cases, 36,774 confirmed deaths, and 1,943,113 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,246 confirmed cases, 500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 437,952 confirmed cases, 5,829 confirmed deaths, and 212,777 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Indiana: they have 743,696 confirmed cases, 13,620 confirmed deaths, and 710,986 confirmed recoveries.[viii]

  66. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.197 per gallon, $2.866 in Florida, $3.926 in Hawaii, and $3.576 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Arizona: $3.126.  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- Sierra Leone: $3.142 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,348,229,478,276 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, this is Day #69 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the “Laughing Hyena,” to be in charge of the southern border and not to have visited it.  Her ‘vice presidential’ salary is being well-spent as you can see.
  68. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– It looks like the Israelis are going to do to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu what the British people did to Prime Minister Winston Churchill at the end of World War II after he saved the UK like Netanyahu has Israel- countless time- vote him out and move on.  Netanyahu has saved Israel countless times and now that he has and the Palestinians have lit them up with more than 4,000 rockets, it appears the liberals in Israel are going to boot him and suck up to Gaza Strip and to Iran in a roundabout way,  Wow. At least Bill Maher is defending Israel unlike the rest of American liberals.  In other foreign and overseas news, news reports say that Mexican drug cartels are hunting Mexican law enforcement officers in their homes.  It sounds like Mexico- if it wants to remain a sovereign nation instead of an Afghanistan-like s**thole, they had better mobilize their military and start cleaning out this nest of vipers.
  69. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit continues even without the help of Democrats within the state who seem to be intent at keeping it under wraps rather than jumping in with both feet to demonstrate there was NO funny business.  The auditors are hand-counting 1 million ballots.  God bless them for doing what is RIGHT.  
  70. 2021 Sunday I: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In the era of ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden, last night/early this morning in Miami-Dade County in Florida, a gunman assaulted a concert, shot two dead, and wounded another 20.  In this era of gun control, amazing at how many folks are getting shot.   Meanwhile, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS, is bragging about how well gun control in the Golden State is doing a few days after the VTA train yard massacre in San Jose, California.   In another incident last night in Pittsburgh, a thug opens fire at a shopping mall but killed no one- two perps are in custody.
  71. 2021 Sunday J: Political News I– The Wisconsin state Assembly has ordered an investigation into Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life.  About time this little POS began to get his.  Next, a Michigan court rules that six recall petitions against Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer and one against Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist can move ahead.  Good.  Remove both of them from office.  Still, their supporters say they will fight the recall efforts in the courts.  Time to cut bait and go.  Moving on, as the Texas elections security bill moves forward, mumbling, stumbling old senile Joe Biden blasts the Lone Star State.  What a loser. Elsewhere, Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, says that ‘masks are no longer required in all government buildings.’
  72. 2021 Sunday K: Political News II– One America News reports a major poll regarding HOW the American people- in this case, New Yorkers- feel about the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Nearly 100-percent of the respondents believe the Chi-Vi came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology nor did they believe it a naturally-occurring virus but a lab-engineered one cooked up by the Chi-Coms.  Some even believed it was retaliation for President Donald J. Trump putting an ass-whooping on them over trade.  (Note- we have said that the virus was ‘too convenient’ as for the Chi-Coms, it allowed them to clamp down on Hong Kong as well as to put their stooge Joe Biden into the White House.  They are going to pay for this BIG TIME.  Retribution is coming).   
  73. 2021 Sunday L: Political News III– Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says the ONLY one responsible for rising inflation is Joe Biden and no one else.  In other political news, Democrats are pushing ahead with H.R. 127- the Firearm Licensing and Registration Act- which requires even more background checks, 24 hours of training paid for by the gun buyer, as well as clearance by a psychiatrist who will interview NOT only the buyer but every member of the immediate family meaning any and all relatives they can reel in with their dragnet.  Even more problematic is that all this information would become PUBLIC meaning everyone would know the guns one has as well as all the background information.  (Note- good thing we all have our firearms and will only buy them out of the backs of car trunks should this crap law ever become law of the land).
  74. 2021 Sunday M: Miscellaneous News I– the United Nations has released a report stating the danger of KILLER autonomous drones flying all over the damned place.  How soon before targeted assassinations are occurring in the skies above every nation?  If the tech companies can kill people with impunity in the Third World, soon, the thugs in the Third  will be repaying the favor.   Elsewhere, former General David Petraeus says the government has a responsibility to care for U.S. service personnel sickened by the notorious burn pits.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast Guard calls off a search for 10 missing Cuban refugees who went into the water off the Florida Keys.  Two bodies were recovered while several others were rescued.  The Coast Guard searched 800,000 square miles of ocean.        
  75. 2022 Monday:  It’s a holiday weekend, hopefully it will be a slow news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album remains one of our favorites; in fact, it is the first of several that we hold especially dear.  Today’s album, “Sunflower,” came out on August 31, 1970, and although critics once again were extremely unkind and sales were crappy, it is an extraordinary album from start to finish.  The lineup on “Sunflower” features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Beginning with “Slip on Through,” sung by Dennis, the absolutely beautiful, “This Whole World” sung by Carl followed by “Add Some Music to Your Day” sung by all the band members to “Got to Know the Woman” (another Dennis rocker) to “Deidre” by Bruce Johnston to “It’s About Time,” a rocker sung by Carl and Mike.  Side two starts off with another Bruce Johnston classic, “Tears in the Morning” followed by the hauntingly beautiful, “All I Wanna Do” (Mike Love).  Next, “Forever,” a lovely Dennis love song followed by “Our Sweet Love,” a heart-warming Carl Wilson love song to “At My Window” (Bruce and Brian) to the closer, “Cool, Cool Water” sung by Brian and Mike.  Folks, this is one of the best albums by the Beach Boys and the first of several that are absolutely stunning.  We hope you seek it out and make it part of your nonstop growing collection.  Enjoy.

[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ii] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[v] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

  53. 2008 Friday: The price of crude oil hits an astounding $125.98 per barrel.  This is not good for the economies of the world.  Meanwhile, Hezbollah continues a powerplay in Lebanon in general and in Beirut in particular as they continue battling with government forces.

  56. 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad.  (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge).  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.  A decade from now, they will be surpassing us.
  57. 2012 Wednesday: After reaching a political compromise that ends her hunger strike, prison officials move Ukrainian opposition leader Yulia Timoshenko to a hospital for monitoring.  Elsewhere, President Barack Hussein Obama[v] officially states his support for same-sex marriage—he ‘evolved.’
  58. 2013 Thursday: A report reveals that hackers using fraudulent ATM cards in February 2013 stole $45 million from across the globe.  Elsewhere, on the Indonesian island of Java, law enforcement thwarts a plot in which terrorists were planning on blowing up the Sri Lankan embassy killing at least seven of the scumbags.
  59. 2014 Friday: For the first time since annexing the Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin visits the region on the holiday commemorating the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.  Who will stop this murderous POS?  Meanwhile, the South Korean military announces that three drones that penetrated its airspace came from North Korea.
  60. 2015 Saturday: After a period of 42 days with NO new Ebola cases, which is twice the normal quarantine rate, the UN Health Organization declares the outbreak of the dreaded virus in the African nation of Liberia to be at an end.  During the outbreak, about 4,700 people died from the horrendous disease.   Elsewhere, the North Koreans claim to have successfully test-fired a missile from a submarine.
  61. 2016 Monday: London Mayor Boris Johnson resigns from office and Muslim Sadiq Khan takes his place, becoming the first Muslim mayor of a major Western city.   Elsewhere, in Baquoba, Iraq, an ISIS car bombing claims the lives of 50 poor souls while injuring another 54 or so.  What the hell is wrong with these people?  Animals. 
  62. 2017 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House.  Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup.  We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime.  Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.
  63. 2018 Wednesday: According to On This Day, the Supreme Court of India has some major criticism for the government department responsible for archaeological preservation because they did little to nothing to prevent the discoloration of the iconic Taj Mahal- the only ‘wonder’ left of the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’- as well as the build-up of green slime in the historic site.  Meanwhile, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani and the Iranian people go ballistic after President Trump declares the U.S. is pulling out of the multinational nuclear deal signed during the Obama administration.  Screw ‘em!
  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries.   Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?  
  66. 2020 Saturday A: In Tullahoma, Oklahoma, famed rock-and-roller, Little Richard, died at age 87.  Little Richard[vi] was famous for so many songs but “Lucille,” “Tutti-Frutti,” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly” are the ones that leap out.  Check him out.

  68. 2021 Sunday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 279,996 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 182,613 deaths.

  73. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The Biden regime has hired 17 new immigration judges to staff the overflowing immigration courts.  These very same judges were offered the same roles under the Donald J.

  74. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Rep. Andy Biggs, 5th congressional district, says that new evidence shows the FBI has been lying to Congress.   We’ve known that for a long time.  Next, Senator Ben Sasse, RINO-NE, is going to introduce legislation that will permit the repurposing of unemployment benefits into hiring bonuses to get everyone to return to work instead of sitting at home and being good little socialists, drawing benefits.   Next, the NCAA is in discussions with the Department of Justice (WHY?) over the new plan of allowing student athletes to make money from their names, likenesses, and apparel.  They should have been able to have done this for a long time.
  75. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– The U.S. Department of Justice is preparing to make a ruling as to whether criminals sent home to house arrest during the Chi-Com pandemic will have to return to prison or not.  Spoiler alert- YOU KNOW the DOJ will cut them all loose.  Just saying.   In other news, NASA is blasting the Chi-Coms over their unprofessional behavior in being unable to control the re-entry of their 22-ton Long March rocket that crashed just west of the Maldives into the Indian Ocean early this morning.  The flipping Chi-Coms.  Like the Soviets, communist simply do not give a flying f**k about the lives and property of other human beings.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys are one of those American success stories, one that NO one at the time had any idea as how far it would go.  Dennis Wilson loved surfing and brought that love of riding the waves home with him.  Brother Brian- inspired by his brother started writing tunes.  A talented, musical family, Brian played bass, piano, and sang while older brother Dennis played drums and could sing.  Youngest brother Carl could play guitar, and their sad started seeing money signs although he was abusive as hell and put them down every opportunity he had.  Mike Love joined his cousins on vocals while neighbor David Marks joined on rhythm guitar and vocals.  Brian could hear all the harmonies in his head and soon the group began to form and chose the name, ‘the Beach Boys.’  Their first album, “Surfin’ Safari” came out on October 01, 1962, and it set the world on fire.  One of the oldest American rock groups, the Beach Boys touched off the California sun and surf craze.  The songs were pretty simple but hey, it was the early 1960s, the Vietnam War was not yet in motion, anything was possible and so it was.  Thus, we have some classic tunes on this album, “Surfin’ Safari,” “409,” and “Surfin’.”  Great music if there ever was which set the world ablaze and put the members of the band on one of the all-time crazy roller-coaster rides.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  You will be glad you did.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 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. We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions. We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

  45. 2003 Thursday: U.S. forces get lucky in Iraq as they scoop up one of deposed dictator Saddam Hussein’s half-brothers, Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, the leader of Iraq’s intelligence-gathering agency, the Mukhabarat.  Off he goes to a black site. 
  46. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 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?  
  65. 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: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 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 $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: 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.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Happy Easter to my Christian friends, colleagues, and neighbors.  For my Jewish friends, neighbors, family members, and coworkers, Happy Passover.  Let us hope the world finds peace, especially at this joyous season.


[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group, but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

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

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

[vi] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

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

[viii] 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.

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

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

The worm turns, folks, the worm turns. President Donald J. Trump and his army of legal eagles have filed a massive lawsuit against the scum behind the so-called ‘Russian collusion hoax.’ Hillary Rodham Clinton, James “The Crook” Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok and his paramour, Lisa Page, the Democratic National Committee, Christopher Steele, and the rest of the slime balls and pond scum that cost the nation FOUR years. You know, Trump deserves another eight years…

83. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 24, 2022, UPDATE A:

The worm turns, folks, the worm turns.  President Donald J. Trump and his army of legal eagles have filed a massive lawsuit against the scum behind the so-called ‘Russian collusion hoax.’  Hillary Rodham Clinton, James “The Crook” Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok and his paramour, Lisa Page, the Democratic National Committee, Christopher Steele, and the rest of the slime balls and pond scum that cost the nation FOUR years.  You know, Trump deserves another eight years…

  • 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 477,617,481 confirmed cases, +1,098,104, 6,132,085 confirmed deaths, +3,702 and 412,540,895 confirmed recoveries, +1,000,501. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 81,541,847 confirmed cases, UP 14,518 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,001,530 confirmed deaths, UP 355,[i] and 63,673,552 confirmed recoveries, UP 50,386.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]
  • 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 552,077 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 189,022 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 428 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.   This man is a disaster and must be doing time in Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary.  Putin and Xi own him and his family lock, stock, and barrel.

  • 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.882 per gallon, $4.120 in Florida, $5.088 in Hawaii, and $4.729 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Utah- $4.428.  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 162nd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Zimbabwe: $8.907 per U.S. Gallon.[ix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,339,211,433,897 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg.  This nation holds $288,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  • 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– As the Russians continue being ground down in Ukraine, former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko says that her country ‘won’t accept Russian ultimatums.’  Meanwhile, via remote hookup, President Volodymyr Zelensky lectured the assembled NATO leaders NEVER to say that Ukraine’s military does NOT meet NATO standards.  The Ukrainians are kicking butt in their fight against the Russian invaders.  This could be among the reasons the Russians announced that they ‘won’t rule out the use of nuclear weapons’ as they continue seeking to de-Nazify Ukraine and to drive the drug addicts out of Kyiv.’  Uh, okay.
  • 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– An ex-adviser to then-British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher says that ‘Joe Biden’s address to NATO was a train wreck.’  Meanwhile, Ukrainian troops captured on Snake Island in the Black Sea by Russian naval forces have been freed in a prisoner swap.   Meanwhile, there is growing hubbub that the Chi-Coms are wavering in their support for the Russians.  After the Ukrainians sunk a Russian warship, things are going from bad to worse for the Russians.  Word has it, Putin is going to call up more conscripts and reservists and deploy them to Ukraine which tells us that there are going to be more fragging incidents of Russian officers.
  • 2022 Thursday H:  Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As illegal aliens continue pressing the border, GOP senators have sent a letter to U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas asking, ‘what’s the plan after Title 42 expires?’  Next, Vice President Kamala Harris has been running the show on the border now for 356 days.  It’s been 270 days since she showed up to do her job.  Okay, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders since January 01, 2022, is- in our estimate- $526,454,513.  This ain’t right.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the puppet entered the White House is $42,798,423,756.  Next, the number of illegals we believe to have entered the U.S. since Joe Biden became ‘president’ is 849,751 while the estimated- conservative, mind you- number living in the U.S. is 45,225,013.  We contend the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which damned sure ain’t good.  (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).

  • 2022 Thursday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump’s legal eagles filed a massive lawsuit seeking millions of dollars in damages against Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and loads of losers such as fired and disgraced FBI Director James “The Crook” Comey over their concocted Trump-Russian collusion scheme.  We hope to see everyone involved in this heinous abuse of federal power behind bars or on the run overseas.
  • 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden continues braying like the feeble knucklehead he is that ‘IF Russia uses chemical weapons in Ukraine, the U.S. will act.’  Act how?  What is different between chemical weapons and let’s say, thermobaric bombs?  Both are evil, ugly, and bad, yet the ‘commander-in-chief’ remains mum on their ongoing use by Russian forces.   Next, in yet another shameful move by this ‘sham-wow president,’ “Pro-China Joe” Biden fires both Dr. Mehmet Oz and Hershel Walker from the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition.  What a partisan POS you are, Joe.
  • 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– As gasoline prices across the United States continue skyrocketing, the American people are laying the blame squarely at the feet of the fraudulent president, Joe Biden.  Man, Karma has a way of biting one on one’s ass, Joe, this is what YOU and your party get for stealing the 2020 Presidential Election.   Meanwhile, as Joe Biden was stumbling and bumbling through his address to NATO, he said the Chi-Coms ‘know they are inextricably linked to the West.’  We guess he is trying to cajole the Chi-Coms into withdrawing support for their Russian allies.  (Note- we suspect they might withdraw support because the Russian catastrophe has to be far from what Xi Jinping envisioned.  It is an embarrassment to modern warfare).
  • 2022 Thursday Q: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– This bogus and sham committee may refer- may refer– famed economic adviser Peter Navarro and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Communications Dan Scavino for ‘criminal prosecution.’  What a load of festering crap.  Go for it.
  • 2022 Thursday R: Political News I– Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that Joe Biden must begin ‘acting like a wartime president.’  The American Civil Liberties Union once again- shock of shocks- suing the Biden regime over ‘questions pertaining to one being a Muslim’ on the U.S.-Mexico border.   Next- the ACLU will soon be jumping on this one- the Arizona state legislature has okayed a ban on tranny reassignment surgeries for minors.  Excellent.
  • 2022 Thursday S: U.S. Senate News I– The Senate Judiciary Committee is wrapping up hearings on Joe Biden’s first SCOTUS pick- affirmative action hire Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, chosen because she has a hoo-hah between her legs and is black- although the sailing is no longer smooth.  Judge Brown Jackson has been extremely lenient in the sentencing of pedophiles and child porn-manufacturers just as she has on terrorists through her lengthy representation of numerous Gitmo Islamic extremists.  She also has had challenges answering questions as to what- exactly- a ‘woman is’ just as she has issues with disclosing her precise views on the 1619 Project’s validity and her views on Critical (Criminal) Race Theory.  Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, posted his concerns over Judge Brown Jackson’s views on these last two issues.  Congressman Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, said that Joe Biden’s SCOTUS nominee is ‘NOT answering vital questions.’  Meanwhile, the Senate vote to deny Russia’s ‘most favored trade status’ for some inexplicable reason has been delayed in the upper chamber.  What’s up with that?
  • 2022 Thursday T: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court is mum on the condition of hospitalized Associate Justice Clarence Thomas.  We hope his security detail is up to snuff and won’t permit what happened to Associate Justice Antonin Scalia.  As you recall, the death of Justice Scalia was under extremely questionable and mysterious circumstances which is why- at least in our view- then-U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell held the seat open until after the 2016 Presidential Election.

  45. 1982 Monday: In the Iran-Iraq War, the Iranians launch a major offensive against Iraq.  The Iraqi offensive sputtered out rather quickly and had the Iranians not been in the midst of coming out of a very violent, bloody revolution, one in which, they whacked numerous high-ranking officers, they may have been able to drive straight to Baghdad.  Instead, this horrible war will drag on for nearly a decade.
  46. 1984 Thursday: Law enforcement investigators charge teachers at the McMartin Preschool in Manhattan Beach with satanic ritual abuse of the children in their care.  However, the authorities later drop the charges as being completely unfounded but not before severely damaging the education professionals.

  55. 2004 Monday: Terry Nichols went on trial for his life in the infamous Oklahoma City bombing.  Already serving a life sentence for his conviction on federal charges, a jury found him guilty of 161 state murder charges, but once again cheated death because the jury couldn’t agree on his sentence.
  56. 2005 Tuesday: Rod Price, the electric slide guitarist of the band Foghat[vi], died on this date in Wilton, New Hampshire, due to a heart attack suffered while falling down the stairs at his home.  He was 57 years-old.   This man made the slide guitar into a virtuoso instrument giving Foghat a sound that made them monsters of the world throughout much of the 1970s and into the early 1980s.  IF you haven’t heard this band yet, you must seek them out ASAP.
  57. 2006 Wednesday: The ETA—an armed Basque separatist group—declares a permanent ceasefire.  Elsewhere, U.S. Army personnel continue to be punished for mistreating Muslim POWs at the Abu Ghraib prison.  Sgt. Michael Smith, a military dog handler, had the misfortune of being photographed frightening jihadist prisoners with unmuzzled canines.  He received a six-month sentence.  Gee whiz.
  58. 2007 Thursday: As the Iraq War continues to drone on and on and on, the Out-of-Iraq Caucus in the U.S. Congress finds themselves worked into a corner.  They planned to vote against a $124 billion military funding bill that would send more money to both the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on the promise the country would find a way with which to remove the U.S. from these endless meatgrinder wars.  Good luck with that.
  59. 2008 Saturday: In Rome, an amazing incident occurs when Pope Benedict XVI baptizes Madgi Allam, the most well-known Muslim cleric in all of Italy.  Allam has decided to turn his back on Islam and become a Roman Catholic.  Will riots break out around the world?  Events such as this usually cause such mayhem.
  60. 2009 Sunday: After a prolonged period of unrest, Mt. Redoubt, an Alaskan volcano commences erupting.  Elsewhere, in the United States, newbie President Barack Hussein Obama is seeking a strategy with which to extradite the United States from the continuous war in Afghanistan.  Good luck with that, sir.  President Obama tells the American people that the Bush-Cheney policies have made the world less-safe.  We concur, the world is a much more dangerous place due to all these regime-change wars neocons love to launch.
  61. 2010 Monday: In a big to-do for the Obama administration, President Obama will be signing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA or more well-known ACA- into law.  The Republicans are preparing to file a bill with which to repeal it if it does become law, but this BS from the GOP would continue until well after Donald J. Trump became president in early 2017.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: Governor Dennis Daugaard, Republican -South Dakota, signs an abortion bill that requires women to wait 72 hours before undergoing the procedure and to receive counseling.  Meanwhile, Hall of Famer NFL player Lawrence Taylor pleads guilty to misdemeanor sexual assault and receives a sentence of six years-probation.

  64. 2013 Friday: The British Food Standards Agency reports a discovery in Lancashire of 100kg of horsemeat imported from Hungary labelled as beef.  Elsewhere, information is beginning to come out regarding the secret drone war the Obama administration has been running covertly.  Four Americans have been slain by CIA drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan and the American public is growing concerned.  What is the 44th president up to?  Didn’t he win a Nobel Peace Prize almost upon the day of his election?  Yikes.  Take it back, Nobel, take it back.
  65. 2014 Saturday: At Oso, Washington, 30 people die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, at Lake Albert, Uganda, a boat capsize kills at least 251 people.  Elsewhere, with Vladimir Putin formerly signing into law the act that allows Russia to rip the Crimea away from the Ukraine, the world is going berserk.  We shall see what we shall see.
  66. 2015 Sunday: Having discovered the remains of King Richard III of England, 1483-85, in the city of Leicester, the crown gives him a royal funeral procession to his place of burial at the Leicester Cathedral.  Elsewhere, it appears that civil war is looming in Yemen.  The United Nations reports the possibility which causes the United States to close a key base and begin pulling personnel out of the violent hellhole.  Meanwhile, one of the creators of the havoc in Yemen- Iran- is demanding an immediate end to ALL sanctions imposed upon their country if the U.S. and other nations trying to engineer a ‘deal’ with Tehran want to see it happen.
  67. 2016 Tuesday:  Jihadists in Brussels, Belgium have caused loads of trouble again as they attacked a subway station and an airport killing at least 31 people and injuring another 200 plus people.  The time is coming when permitting ‘armies’ of military age Muslim males from the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa must stop or Europe will be no more.  The authorities are out seeking this riffraff.   Elsewhere, Senator Ted Cruz says it’s ‘time we begin patrolling Muslim neighborhoods in the U.S. to prevent them from becoming radicalized.’  This of course raises the ire of liberals across the country.  God, forbid we do something to protect our country.  
  68. 2017 Wednesday: Original drummer for the East Coast rock band, Boston[vii]—Sib Hashian—drops dead while performing on a cruise ship in Nassau, Bahamas; he was age 67.  Elsewhere, the House of Representatives is preparing to vote on the future of the Affordable Care Act, one of the failed Obama era messes that Donald Trump promised to end on Day 1.  Across the nation, liberals are out running riot in the streets, screaming don’t take away our healthcare.  Wah, wah, wah, everyone receiving Obamacare is receiving it thanks to government subsidies which are bankrupting the government.  Obamacare MUST GO.  NOW.
  69. 2018 Thursday: According to new scientific research, the Great Floating Island of Garbage haunting the waters between California and Hawaii contains more than 1.8 trillion pieces of garbage and thanks to China, Russia, and the Third World continues expanding by the minute.  Meanwhile, in eastern China at Yancheng, a chemical Xiangshui plant explodes with such magnitude that it registers as an earthquake, killing at least 64 and at least- according to Chinese reporting 28 missing.  Wow.
  70. 2019 Friday: Rumors continue to abound that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, nicknamed the “Boy Scout,” will soon release his more than two-plus years witch hunt into all-things Russian collusion and President Donald J. Trump.  People who either helped initiate the potential coup or who have knowledge of the farce begin distancing themselves from the impending release of the final report.   Millions of Americans hope that when the report clears the president, that the people who launched the coup- Andrew McCabe, Rod J. Rosenstein, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page, and numerous others- including Barack Hussein Obama- will face justice. 
  71. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 continues crisscrossing the world with the death toll now sitting at 15,000 with loads more to follow.  Worldwide, there are at least 340,000 confirmed cases of the bat virus with several nations such as Italy feeling the brunt of the growing pandemic.  The Gaza Strip, Afghanistan, and Syria report their first cases while German Chancellor Angela Merkel goes into self-imposed quarantine following her personal physician testing positive for this evil crap.  The U.S. is trying to prevent foreign flights coming in so as to stop the spread of the virus but in some areas, particularly Democrat-controlled areas, they aren’t taking it seriously as they should.   In Japan, the Summer Olympics are up in the air what with some nations now saying they aren’t going to send athletes.
  72. 2021 Monday:  BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I– Despite a blackout on what is occurring on the U.S. southern border with Mexico, brave souls are releasing shocking of photos of illegal aliens and illegal alien brats crammed into sardine can-like holding facilities, sleeping on cement floors with foil blankets for protection.  Where is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka the Baby Evita, where is Rashida Tlaib, where is Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and all the rest of the blubbering leftists who care so much about illegal alien kids?  Nowhere.  Let the world see them for what they are- glib hypocritical POS.   Former Acting U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf says it’s NOT an ‘open border but a LAWLESS border now’ thanks to blundering Joe Biden’s horrible America-last immigration policies.
  73. 2021 Monday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– President Donald J. Trump says his administration handed Joe Biden a secure border.  Look at it now.   As the crisis continues growing exponentially worse by the hour, the 45th president blasted the enfeebled 46th president’s border policies as inhuman, cruel, and according to us, EVIL.   Speaking of the 46th disaster, he says he will go to the border when ‘he’s good and ready.’  Uh, okay.  The problem is, you WON’T know what you are looking at, Joe, you’ll think you’re at the zoo… Elsewhere, we learn that U.S. Customs and Border Patrol interactions with family units on the southern border are up by 188 percent and illegal alien brats by 96-percent.  Build the wall and deport them all.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Monday B: POLITICAL NEWS– Congressman Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district received an endorsement from President Donald J. Trump as he runs to unseat RINO Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, an extremely corrupt individual who colluded with Governor Brian Kemp and political hack Stacey Abrams to throw the 2020 Presidential Election to stumbling, bumbling old Joe Biden in the Peach State.  Even more embarrassing for Mr. Raffensperger is the fact that HIS county- Fulton County- banned him from serving as a delegate in any upcoming elections.  Ouch.  Congressman Hice thanks President Trump saying his endorsement has led to an overwhelming response in support.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump says that Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘is hanging by a thread in the upcoming battle to end the Senate filibuster rule.’  (Note- we also learn that dark money is funding efforts to end the filibuster rule).
  75. 2021 Monday C: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Pro-Death Joe Biden is facing a growing backlash from the Catholic (and other religious affiliations) over his rabid support of abortion at all stages of gestation and even after birth.  IF Pope Francis were not a liberal-socialist, some say, ‘communist,’ he would excommunicate Biden, his family, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and loads of other Pro-Death Democrats and liberals.  Pope Francis- do your job, excommunicate these Catholic-in-Name-only, aka CINO, abortion-loving losers.  NOW.  Next, Joe Biden (well, the voice in his ear) says he is going to move to bolster Obamacare prior to its upcoming 11th anniversary.  What a disaster.  Biden (the voice) also says that his administration must prepare to get $3 trillion in additional spending on the road NOW.
  76. 2021 Monday D: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Russia regrets the United States lack of support for public talks between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin.  Elsewhere, for the first time this year, Russian warplanes carried out airstrikes on rebel positions in northwestern Syria.  Blow those bastards to hell, boys!  Next, the U.S. sanctions two Chinese officials for their roles in repressing Uighur Muslims.   Speaking of the Chinese, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘we cannot reward communist China by allowing them to hold the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing.’  Numerous nations around the world are joining the movement to either boycott the games or to see them moved elsewhere. 
  77. 2021 Monday E: MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRES AND OTHER CRIME NEWS– A Chinese American group condemns, we repeat, condemns CRITICAL RACE THEORY as being the new form of Maoism.  How soon do we see Red Guards going door to door in the streets?  Instead of lamenting the dead in the Atlanta killings, the Democrats are using the dead to stir their evil-smelling pot of fecal matter to continue their race-baiting ways as well as to steal guns from the American people.  Speaking of the Massage Parlor Massacres, the feds say there is “NO EVIDENCE that the shooter’s crimes were racially motivated thus no federal hate crimes charges can be filed against the sex addict shooter.’  This of course drives all liberals insane.  Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO, says that the politization of the crimes is a ‘calculation’ on the part of the Democrats.   Speaking of crime, the judge in the Derek Chauvin trial has seated the 14th and final juror in the upcoming trial.   
  78. 2021 Monday F: SCOTUS NEWS– The John Roberts U.S. Supreme Court will weigh reinstating the Boston Marathon Bomber’s death sentence.  Folks- just execute this POS, he does not need to sit on death row for the next 40 years.  Next, the Supreme Court won’t take up the case about Facebook tracking its users.  Speaking of Facebook, they claim to have removed 1.3 billion false accounts between October to December of last year.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– The Los Angeles teachers’ union agrees to reopen schools sometime in April.  (Note- teachers have NO clue as to what is heading their way, the discipline problems are going to be off the charts.  We expect to see teachers and administrators assaulted, beaten, raped, and murdered because the young people with socialization skills are going to amped up more than anyone can comprehend.  It’s going to be ugly).  Elsewhere, Miami Beach, Florida, has had to slap on a curfew from 8:00 p.m. to sometime the next morning because of fights, havoc, and people crowding together.   Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and Elon Musk are arguing over wealth and how best to spend it.  Mr. Musk, whatever Bernie says, do the EXACT opposite.  Finally, newbie Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, is tying gun control together with voting rights.  (Note- Georgia- vote this POS out of office next year).   
  80. 2021 Monday H: AICPENDBLOG.COM ENDORSEMENT– We endorse former Assistant Administrator of the Small Business Administration Sery Kim to fill the open House seat in Texas’ 6th congressional district.  The Special General Election will occur on May 1, 2021.

  82. 2021 Monday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 219,704 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Centers for Disease Control says that California ranks 44th in Chi-Vi vaccine equity.  F**k equity, just distribute this crap to whomever wants it and for those that don’t, stop guilting them.  Meanwhile, AstraZeneca reports that U.S. data shows that their vaccine is 79-percent effective.  
  83. 2021 Monday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,643,252 confirmed cases, 57,679 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,834 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 357,443 confirmed cases, 5,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- U.S. Virgin Islands: currently, they have 2,767 confirmed cases, 25 confirmed deaths, and 2,653 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,672 confirmed cases, 6,102 confirmed deaths, and 807,341 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Sweden, home of pissed-off Greta Thunberg: 744,272 cases of the virus, 13,262 confirmed deaths but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  
  84. 2021 Monday K:   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,731.20, UP 103.23 points (+0.32%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,377.54, UP 162.31 points (+1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,940.59, UP 27.49 points (+0.70%).  The price of GOLD is $1,737.80 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.82 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.20%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,186.50 per troy oz, +2.50 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, 0.00 (-0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,186.50 per troy oz, -4.50 (-0.38%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.00 per troy oz, +45.00 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.19 per barrel, -0.40 (-0.61%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.57.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Bahraini Dinar, one greenback equals 0.38.  
  85. 2021 Monday L: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.597 in Hawaii, and $3.317 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,082,074,861,052 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  86. 2021 Monday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– George W. Bush political advisor Karl Rove is planning on holding a fund-raiser for politically dead man-walking Congressman Adam Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district.  That’s Karl Rove for you.  The guy is probably thinking he’s going to trot out Jeb Bush for another go in 2024.  One thing we can guarantee you, the era of voting for the lesser of two evils– meaning voting for a RINO instead of a Democrat has ended. If we’re going to go socialist, then we’re going to go socialist so what difference does it make if it’s next year or in three years or whatever?  NO MORE RINOs.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s national security adviser says it wasn’t a mistake to call Vladimir Putin a ‘killer.’  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the battle of mail-in ballots is raging in the Florida statehouse.  We don’t want mail-in ballots.   Next, the push to make the federal district of Washington, D.C., is beginning in the U.S. Senate.  Washington, D.C. was NEVER meant to be a state.   Finally, accusers of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo claim the Lov Gov is interfering in the harassment probe into his scandalous activities and actions.  The man is a groper.
  87. 2021 Monday N: CRIME NEWS– In Boulder, Colorado, a lone gunman carrying a rifle shot and killed 10 people- including a law enforcement office- at a King Soopers Grocery Store.  The shooting began around 2:30 P.M. and within minutes, a line of emergency vehicles and first responders ringed the store.  Law enforcement then went in and subdued the scumbag.  He’s in custody.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice has announced that it is considering hitting the Oath Keepers with SEDITION charges for their part in the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots.  The question is, WILL the Justice Department file similar charges against Antifa and Black Lives Matter as both groups infiltrated Trump supporters and engineered one of the largest FALSE FLAG operations in modern U.S. history.   
  88. 2021 Monday O: In other crazy news, RINO Bill Kristol, one of the all-time great phonies is supporting making Washington, D.C., a state while also advocating the invasion of Cuba and making that one a state, too.  This worthless phony has never seen a Third World War for which he didn’t advocate, and NO one should waste time listening to this dumb ass.  The time for jingoism ended when at the end of the Mexican-American War, the U.S. didn’t absorb the land between our southern border all the way down to Columbia just as after the Spanish-American War, we didn’t keep Cuba, too.  Next thing you know, Bill Kristol is going to want to make Afghanistan a U.S. commonwealth or at least a territory.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Stick around…
