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.

276. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, OCTOBER 03, 2022

We are living in a time none of us anticipated: the transition between a constitutional, representational republic and a full-blown fascist dictatorship comparable to that envisioned by George Orwell in his prognostic work of fiction, “1984.” When the homes of ‘former’ presidents, of Christian, Pro-Life ministers, and of other conservative leaders can be raided with impunity, tyranny is replacing liberty. What will we do about this affront? Will we fight back with every ounce of strength we possess or will we sheepishly submit to a fraudulent regime? We will see…

  53. 2019 Thursday: House Democrats- continuing to go bonkers over Trump- threaten to subpoena documents from the White House on the phone call between President Trump and his counterpart in the Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky.  Little do they know that a year later, an investigation by the U.S. Senate released on Wednesday, September 23, 2020, would expose the criminality by then-Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden, his son, Hunter, and the Burisma, the corrupt Ukrainian energy company.
  54. 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump remains in Walter Reed Medical Center undergoing treatment for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  His doctors announce that currently, he is receiving Regeneron, an experimental antibody treatment, as well as Remdesivir, zinc, Vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin, and aspirin.  We learn that Trump’s campaign manager Bill Stepien, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, GOP, and former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie also tested positive for COVID-19 as has New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton.  Speaking of football, the game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Tennessee Titans, originally scheduled for tomorrow, will not occur until October 25 due to Chi-Vi infections crippling the latter team. 
  55. 2020 Saturday A: The press continues being angry at President Trump today, most notably because he did not stop on the way to Marine One to speak with them.  Had he done so, they would have said the commander-in-chief, a man whom they loathe and despise, was trying to infect them with the Wuhan Virus.  Meanwhile, “Pro-China Joe” Biden virtue signals by removing negative campaign ads lambasting President Trump for his coronavirus response while the president is ill.  Wow.   Elsewhere, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues her plea from yesterday to the sinking U.S. airlines, beseeching them NOT to lay-off or furlough tens of thousands of workers because ‘a COVID-19 relief bill is coming soon.’  Uh, okay- so where is it, Madam Speaker?  Speaking of government, a judge orders the organizers of the 2020 Census to continue collecting information until October 31.  It was set to end next week.  Finally, we learn that New York City has already passed the record number of homicides it had last year- 318- coming in at 346 with three months to go.  Great leadership there, Mayor Bill Di Blasio!

Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 321 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 BUT YOU ARE ALMOST THERE…

[xiii]  Tomorrow, we return to the lowest.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,834,563,789,050 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.

  69. 2022 Monday: Observation of the Day- Living overseas provides me with a different view of what is going on in my home country.  All I can say is that I have never seen nor thought I would ever see a fascist government the likes of the Joe Biden regime.  Imagine sending FBI goon squads out to the homes of Pro-Life Christian ministers- who among us ever thought we would see that?  Imagine sending an army of FBI thugs into the home of a ‘former’ president, ostensibly to seize records the archivists in Washington, D.C., claim to need?  Never thought I would live to see that.  Imagine going across the country seizing the phones of friends of the ‘former’ president with vague warrants and lots of jackbooted tactics?  Something else I never expected to see.  I never thought that the FBI would go after former advisers for a ‘former’ president, accosting them at airports, slapping them in leg irons, handcuffs, and dragging them off to languish in a prison cell after they agreed to cooperate and to present themselves?  This is not good.  All I can say is that I am glad that I am on the downhill slide in my life that I am closer to the end than nearer to the start.  I suspect that if we fail to have the crushing victory in the 2022 Mid-Terms, future generations will look back on this time in national and world history and will say that this is when DEMOCRACY died and that the American people were unwilling to fight to keep it.  I am extremely glad I am where I am at because I do not know if I could continue functioning in a society gone awry.  Let me know your opinions- Moses Scharbug III.

268. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2022

A man can only take so much: CBS’ new seasons of the “FBI” are making it impossible to watch these programs thanks to the underlying theme that angry, anti-government, right-wing white folks are behind every violent crime in this country. Had Hitler had television and social media atop his fake news bureau there is no telling what additional evils he could not have achieved

  60. 2020 Friday: Thanks to the persecution of Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn by out-of-control leftist Judge Emmet G. Sullivan, we have learned that the main sub-source for the so-called (Christopher) Steele Dossier is Ukrainian born Igor “Iggy” Danchenko, a foreign national investigated by the FBI from 2009 to 2011.  Apparently, he was ‘flipped’ by the Obama administration and would become a major player in the fabrication of the bogus dossier used by the Hillary 2016 presidential campaign and Democrats to destroy then-candidate and now-president Donald J. Trump.   
  61. 2020 Friday A: We also have learned- thanks again to Judge Sullivan- that several FBI agents involved in SPYING on Trump and his campaign, White House, and cabinet officials understood the investigation to be extremely flawed and took out personal liability insurance to protect them when the proverbial s**t hit the fan.  The longer Democrat players fail to step forward and begin ‘fessing up,’ the worse we hope things will be for them when the American people know everything.  Meanwhile, the president continues to call what the Democrats have tried to do to him a ‘coup’ which is how a majority of Americans see it.  He also questions ‘WHY the wife of the Moscow, Russia, mayor gave Hunter Biden $3.5 million a fleeting time ago.’  What is up with Hunter? [viii]
  62. 2020 Friday B: In Louisville, Kentucky, this morning- following a night of rioting by Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and other human scum- well-known attorney and race-baiter Benjamin Crump does his best to stir up still more violence and to help him do this, he has brought Jacob Blake Sr., father of the thug shot and crippled in Kenosha, Wisconsin, to the smoldering city.  Mr. Crump demands ALL grand jury information be made available to the public, including the names of the grand jurors and witnesses.  He wants to know if Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, testified at the proceedings.  Why don’t you ask him, sir?   A recent Fox News Channel poll shows that 44-percent of the American people disapprove of the mob violence across the nation, up from the thirties a month or two ago.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order that will send $500 billion to black communities across the country.  The order also calls Antifa and the Ku Klux Klan as terrorist groups.
  63. 2020 Friday C: President Trump is on the campaign trail today with stops in Florida where he attended a roundtable for Latinos’ event and says he ‘has done more for Latinos than any other president’ which is true.  He plans to hold a rally in Virginia. Meanwhile, Governor Ralph Northam and his wife NOW test positive for the Wuhan Xi Jinping Chinese Bat Flu Virus leading the state government scrambling for ways to prevent the Trump campaign rally.  We know it will become a ‘protest’ which will legitimize the event and stifle the critics.  Meanwhile, popular Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signs an order lifting all remaining COVID-19 restrictions.  Florida is now open for business once more.  Elsewhere, former Rep. Ron Paul, father of Senator Rand Paul, entered a hospital in Texas for precautionary reasons.  We hope you are okay.
  64. 2020 Friday D: PAC 12 announces it will play an abbreviated schedule of seven games beginning in November.  Congratulations for coming back!  All major conferences will now be playing or are playing.   President Trump concluded an event- a ‘protest’ if you will- in Georgia and now is on the way to Virginia where he will conduct another ‘protest’ in lieu of being able to hold a political rally. 
  65. 2020 Friday E: Elsewhere, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi when asked if she is going to impeach President Trump again, she nixed that idea what with the election looming in the near future.  She does, however, threaten that the House is going to pass a bill that will limit HOW many SCOTUS nominees a president can nominate and how long they can serve once confirmed.  Since the Democrats have been threatening to stack the courts, we think the president should nominate another seven- instead of one- and get them jump-started in what they now swear to do should “Pro-China Joe” Biden win on November 3.

  75. 2021 Saturday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Reports continue flowing out of Afghanistan about the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- and its adherents, the Taliban, hanging bodies in town squares, beheading and/or lopping off limbs of ‘criminals’ all to keep the peace in their hellhole of a country.  Mouthpieces for the Biden regime continue claiming they will hold the Taliban accountable all the while sending the human fecal matter U.S. tax dollars to ‘help the people.’  It’s not helping anyone but the Taliban, you dumb asses.
  76. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here is the sad truth of the matter what with the illegal alien invasion as presented by One America News: first, here is the cost of caring for the tens of millions of illegals running amok across our country: $722,349,248.  Imagine what good that money could do caring for the American people and not the Third World’s hand-me-downs?  It could be life-altering.  Next, here is the cost for this year of caring for the illegals raping the country and the American taxpayers for the calendar year 2021: $293,325,176,832.  Third, here is the SHOCKING number of illegals who have flowed into our country like an inexorable tidal wave of filth for 2021: 3,006,348.  Horrifying.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals living in our country: 37,006,348.  This is horrifying.  Round them up and deport the hell out of all of them. (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).
  77. 2021 Saturday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– In other news related to both the Biden regime and the catastrophe occurring along our southern border, today is Day No. 184 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of solving the border crisis and Day No. 91 since he sole visit to the slowest portion of the border crisis, the El Paso Sector.  (Note- send “Kooky” a message saying, “Bitch, go to work.  Now).  Meanwhile, as the Biden regime continues to vilify the U.S. Border Patrol and threatening to PUNISH them for doing their jobs, Rep. Yvette Herrell, R-NM 2nd congressional district, says that the Dems are ‘demonizing the Border Patrol.’  Amen.
  78. 2021 Saturday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– In western Ukraine, Ukrainians, U.S., and other NATO allies are conducting joint military exercises.  This must be galling to the Russians like the Russians conducting joint military exercises with the Chi-Coms in MEXICO.  Let’s stop ‘pushing the envelope.’  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, feeble Joe Biden is meeting with the leaders of India, Japan, and now-fascist Australia.   In other news related to Beijing and its intelligence gathering around the world, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, is blasting LinkedIn for bowing to the Chi-Coms and banning various user profiles the Chi-Coms fear or dislike.  Not good.  Also, regarding communist China, Rep. Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district, said today that the ‘world is going to seize on Joe Biden’s weakness.’  They already have, Congressman.  Finally, the peaceful Muslim group, al-Shabab carried out a suicide attack in Somalia today killing 8 poor souls and wounding God knows how many others.  Horrible.
  79. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– As protests continue to expand across Australia regarding the harsh, authoritarian COVID-19 mandates and lockdowns imposed upon a FREE people, the state of Victoria has imposed lockdowns on- get this- the media.  Like a totalitarian country, they don’t want the rest of the world to witness the self-inflicted upheaval.  Let the people go, dimwits!

  81. 2022 Sunday:  I was going to urge everyone to vote for the GOP slate from the very top to the lowest low in November but I have an even more pressing issue to address: the propaganda coming at us night after night in TV shows.  As everyone should know, on CBS on Tuesday nights, the three Joestapo shows rule the evening.  First, we have “Joestapo,” then we have “Joestapo International,” and finally, we have “Joestapo Most Wanted.”  All three of the shows are chasing WHITE EXTREMISTS who inhabit the right side of the aisle but never the left.  It’s all bullshit and it makes me want to puke my guts.  It’s bad enough we have FAKE NEWS CHANNELS.  Now, we have networks cranking out left-wing crap on behalf of the Biden regime.  Thus, I will no longer watch a single Joestapo show.  Enough is enough.  If Adolf Hitler and the Nazis had numerous FAKE NEWS TV channels, if they had TV shows spewing the party line, imagine the vile things he could have accomplished atop the already vile things the Nazi regime did.  The time has come to bid network dramas, comedies, and even flipping sports goodbye because I am tired of the overt attempts at insinuating the bulls**t the fraudulent regime in the White House wants to force on us.  That leads me back to this: VOTE FOR EVERY REPUBLICAN FROM TOP TO BOTTOM ON THE NOVEMBER BALLOT.  Do whatever we must do to get rid of these scumbags.  Again, enough is enough.  See you in six months.  Chef Kilgore Randalini.

On October 01, 1991, Cheap Trick released their first ‘best of’ compilation, “The Greatest Hits.”  This album went PLATINUM, so things were good for the band.  One finds 13 BIG TUNES on this CD, all of them excellent.  You get (1) “Magical Mystery Tour” (a Beatles cover and a damned good one at that); (2) “Dream Police” (3) “Don’t Be Cruel” (4) “Tonight It’s You” (5) “She’s Tight” (6) “I Want You to Want Me” (live version), (7) “If You Want my Love” (8) a cover of Fats Domino’s “Ain’t That a Shame” (live version), (9) “Surrender” (10) “The Flame” (11) “I Can’t Take It” (12) “Can’t Stop Falling into Love” and the absolutely beautiful, (13) “Voices.”  From the time famed producer George Martin came aboard for one album several years back, the band had a Beatles-style sound to some of their work such as “Voices” as well as would do covers such as “Magical Mystery Tour.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We suspect you will be glad you did.

[i] We began promoting the music of Spirit and of Randy California beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  Please seek them out and consider adding their music to your collection.

[ii] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years.  Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.

[iii] We began promoting the music of this famed Los Angeles, California, rock band on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  Please seek out the music of this awesome band.  Love was among the best of the 1960s

[iv] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, Mott, the British Lions, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[v] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[vi] We promoted the music of Led Zeppelin- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through vocalist Paul Rodgers of both Free and Bad Company on Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope you will check them all out.

[vii] 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.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[viii] The longer Democrats continue trying to shovel dirt over this corpse, the more destructive it’s going to be for them.  We have never prosecuted a president once he has left office but if people like the communist John Brennan, the hack James Clapper, and the POS fired FBI Director James Comey fail to come clean, the worse it’s going to be for Barack Hussein Obama and Joe Biden- and many, many more.  Let’s hold their feet to the fire and begin sending people to prison for this attempted coup.  That also means Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Chuckie Boy Schumer.  Send them to prison and save the nation!

Illegal alien crime has skyrocketed around Kern County, California, and across the entire nation.

[ii]
  57. 2020 Thursday: Following last night’s violent mob riots in Louisville, Kentucky, over the grand jury’s findings on the Breonna Taylor death, two police officers were shot.  Today, the interim police chief said both are ‘doing well’ and that a suspect- Lorenzo Johnson- is in custody.  Next, Florida’s Attorney General Ashley Moody is calling for an FBI investigation into neo-lib New York billionaire and failed presidential primary candidate Michael Bloomberg for paying off the fines and other debts of BLACK and BROWN Florida felons with the payback that they- allegedly- will vote DEMOCRAT on November 3.  Bloomberg is breaking all kinds of election law and we look forward to seeing the angry imp go to federal prison.  
  58. 2020 Thursday A: Speaking of campaigning, President Donald J. Trump will be in North Carolina and Florida today while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is somewhere incognito and his running mate, Kooky Kamala Harris is nowhere to be found.   Speaking of “Gropin’ Joe,” Rush Limbaugh predicts today that the former vice president will be a no-show at next Tuesday night’s presidential debate and that the campaign will use ‘he was exposed to someone with the Beijing Bat Flu and must quarantine.’  We shall see.
  59. 2020 Thursday B: Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the fake news media is beginning to sweat bullets demanding if his ‘low key strategy’ for winning the presidential election is really what he needs to be doing.  They also are questioning Kooky Kamala for being unavailable to the news media.  Where is she?  Where is he?  Is this growing terror among liberal Democrats the reason WHY the fake news media is demanding to know if ‘there will be a peaceful transition of power in January 2021?’  They act as though the president is a goner which is farthest from the truth.  The man is going to SMOKE them, and the GOP is going to crush the Beijing-backed Democratic Party. 
  60. 2020 Thursday C: Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., President Donald J. Trump, and First Lady Melania Trump pay their respects to deceased U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the steps of the court as she lies in repose for the second day.  Assembled throngs of protesters scream and yell all manner of insults at the pair, which is a shame but folks, like water runs off the backs of ducks, so, too, do insults leveled at the president and first lady.  Shame on you scumbags.  
  61. 2020 Thursday D: Last week, there were 870,000 new jobless claims[iii] which reflects the damage being done to the foodservice and hospitality industries as well as to the airlines.  Most of the damage is being purposefully caused by states where Democrats run amok.  Let us change that on November 3 in the places in which, we, the American people can.  Speaking of the election, today, a letter from 500+ former U.S. military and cabinet officials says that “Trump is unfit to serve as commander-in-chief” and that [senile old] Joe Biden would be a fine commander-in-chief due to his principles and morality.  Please- the man and hus son abused his office to reap vast amounts of wealth from the Chi-Coms and the Ukrainians.  The guy and his family should be nowhere near the White House or the levers of power.
  62. 2020 Thursday E: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole–  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 32,039,142 confirmed cases, +351,335, 979,389, confirmed deaths, +6,820, and 22,024,644 confirmed recoveries, +236,421.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 7,046,492 confirmed cases, up 30,167 from yesterday’s reporting, 205,614 confirmed deaths, UP 848, and 3,800,745 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,103.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 209,635 confirmed cases, 1,376 confirmed deaths, and 148,417 confirmed recoveries.

  65. 2020 Thursday H: Durham Investigation Update- We learned today that the Durham investigation into what launched the ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ scheme in motion has absorbed the 2017 federal investigation into the Clinton Foundation as well as what happened to her emails, the ones she says ‘disappeared.’  Couple that with information that began coming out yesterday that showed many of the FBI agents coerced into investigating candidate- and then- President Trump were dubious about the entire mess.  As each day progresses, more and more proof continues to drop that depicts the whole sham investigation the Obama Justice Department initiated was as fraudulent as scores of millions of open-minded Americans believed to be duplicitous from the beginning.   How soon before we witness key components of the illegal investigation going to prison?  Speaking of the U.S. Justice Department and the feds, Justice reports that approximately 127 ‘peaceful protesters’ underwent arrest last night in Louisville, Kentucky, for riot-related charges.  Lock ‘em up.
  66. 2020 Thursday I:  Word came out today that three members of the Metro North NYC Public Transit employees- two foremen and one worker- are in trouble for having constructed a comprehensive mancave underneath Grand Central Station.  The ‘clubhouse’ had couches, television sets, refrigerators, all the things guys on the job require for braving boring jobs.  We shall see what happens to them.  Elsewhere, tomorrow, the casket holding Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s body will lie in state in Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol, the first woman to be so honored and the final day of the three-day celebration of the high court’s second female justice.
  67. 2020 Thursday J: FREE CHINA- aka Taiwan- reports that for three days in a row, Chi-Com surveillance planes have attempted to penetrate the Republic of China’s airspace but that the Taiwanese drove them off.  It is clear the communist Chinese are increasing pressure on their freedom-loving cousins.  Beat ‘em back, boys!  Meanwhile, we learn that Putin critic Alexei Navalny, while being treated for Novichok poisoning in Berlin, had his bank accounts and home seized by Putin’s thugs.  Who didn’t see that coming?
  68. 2020 Thursday K: Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel show that “The Bail Project,” a leftist group designed to spring arrested rioters across the country is funded by some of the wealthiest people in America.  An operative named Holly Zoller funded the U-Haul truck filled with riot gear for the Louisville rioters.  These people need to go to prison.  Now.  They brag on their site (https://bailproject.org/) that as of this evening, they have paid the bail of more than 12,096 rioters and thugs. 
  69. 2020 Thursday L: Sports News I– Tonight’s Thursday Night Football Game features the Miami Dolphins @ the Jacksonville Jaguars.  The Dolphins won 31-13.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 388,770 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 15,308 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  75. 2021 Friday D: 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 $4.388 per gallon, $3.076 in Florida, $4.071 in Hawaii, and $3.857 in Washington state. [xi]    Let us look at one other Massachusetts: $3.100.  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- Italy: $7.430 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,800,112,335,982 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 Saudi Arabia 2, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea with $131 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.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 183- by our count- for the extremely popular ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris- to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and to have NOTHING about it.  It is also her 90th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Instead, she, like her boss, feeble Joe Biden, are calling mounted Border Patrol officers RACISTS for doing their jobs in trying to repel the INVASION going on down there.  Folks, we are surprised the Border Patrol is gearing up with the National Guard and putting in 50-caliber MG emplacements and artillery pits and blowing the vermin flooding across the border to Kingdom Come.  How much more are they expected to suffer?  Meanwhile, since the U.S. Supreme Court has ordered the Biden regime to reinstate the “Remain in Mexico Policy,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the regime to get a deadline as to when the policy will be reinstated.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The disingenuous U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says there are ‘no more’ HAITIAN INVADERS under the Del Rio, Texas, overpass.  That means they have been dumped across the country and into RED STATE areas.  We cannot permit this outrageous activity to continue, and we must resist all pushes by the Biden regime to dump illegal aliens among us.  Still, no matter what Secretary Mayorkas says, news sources claim there are still at least 4,000 HAITIAN INVADERS remaining in Bidenville with hundreds more arriving every day.   Meanwhile, after a visit to the southern border yesterday by political hack and human pig, Reverend Al Sharpton- a visit met with heckling, derision, insults, but sadly, no overripe tomato smack dab in the kisser- the old racist lit into the Biden regime for mistreating his peeps, the HAITIAN INVADERS.
  78. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– After Australia joined with the United Kingdom and the United States to stab France in the back, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he is ‘reaching out to France to mend fences.’  Wow.  What a guy.  What he should be doing is reconciling with the Australian people as increasing clashes over the dictatorial COVID-19 lockdowns are sending regular Australians into the streets to do battle with the Taliban-like regime.  Meanwhile, as the U.S. continues its abandonment of long-time ally, Saudi Arabia, Houthi rebels are steaming toward the capital city of Sana’a as well as to the nation’s oilfields.  Time to ally with Israel, Saudis.   
  79. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The United Kingdom is facing fewer goods with higher prices as the loss of tens of thousands of truck drivers is also driving up fuel costs.  This is not good for the British people.  The government is more concerned with forcing its citizens to get vaccinated for the BIG C-19, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, rather than working on behalf of their citizens.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the Central Intelligence Agency has had to pull its Vienna station chief due to a recent ‘Havana Syndrome’ attack.  (Note- we need to figure this one out and begin responding in kind).
  80. 2021 Friday J: Health and Medical Alerts– Today we learned that “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has found a way to circumvent Joe Biden’s edict on slashing the delivery of monoclonal antibodies to the Sunshine State in the name of ‘equity.’  The governor has secured his own supply.  Elsewhere- and this is truly shocking- Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says his ‘only regret about funding the Wuhan Institute of Virology” (to ‘study’ the COVID-19 virus) ‘is the backlash from doing it.’
  81. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Dictator Joe Biden is pushing on ALL eligible Americans to rush out and undergo a THIRD COVID-19 SHOT, i.e., the BOOSTER SHOT.  The dictator is growing angrier by the day and is warning ALL Americans to do this ASAP or face his wrath.  (Note- Joe, almost all of the chef-bloggers here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have not gotten the first shot and the more we learn about what it’s in this crap, the less inclined we are to go and get it.  Talk about the “Mark of the Beast,” this is crazy).  Likewise, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky has blown off the panel of experts at the Food and Drug Administration that said Chi-Vi boosters were not necessary and is demanding ALL frontline workers to rush out and get the third jab.  Talk about a glorious example of the COVID-19 money-go-round and how drug makers and politicians are profiting off this crap.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, however, continues to wage war with the regime by calling out both Joe Biden and Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci accusing them of ‘ignoring the science of natural immunity.’  Finally, Joe Biden ordered today that ALL federal government contractors must undergo vaccination with the Chi-Com virus vaccine no later than December 08.

  86. 2021 Friday P: 2020 Election Audit– Arizona today presented the findings of the 2020 Election Audit and President Donald J. Trump says that the FAKE NEWS already is spinning the findings as proof that Joe Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election.   The findings show that large numbers of anomalies occurred in the 2020 Presidential and General Elections that require answers.  Thus, the Arizona Senate has sent the full report to state Attorney General Mark Brnovich in the hope that this RINO renegade will do something about it.
  87. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s outrage continues to grow over what he saw occurring on the U.S.-Mexico border what with mounted U.S. Border Patrol agents trying to corral thousands of fleeing HAITIAN INVADERS and has vowed that he is going to ‘make them pay.’  NOT the HAITIAN INVADERS but the U.S. Border Patrol agents.  Wow.  WTF is going on in our country.  Not only did Biden speak out on incident, BUT DHS Secretary Alejandro ALSO Mayorkas blamed the actions of the Border Patrol on- wait for it- systemic racism.  However, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, blasted Mayorkas’ comments as both ‘asinine’ and ‘arrogant.’
  88. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– As more and more media folks continue asking some problematic questions regarding Hunter Biden’s art ‘deals,’ the Biden regime continues clamping down on NOT answering these particularly important questions.  Next, Joe Biden concedes budget talks have hit a roadblock and admits that the $3.5 trillion infrastructure and the budget reconciliation bill may ‘take a while.’
  89. : Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo says that the ‘U.S. getting into the chip-manufacturing business will help alleviate the shortage in this and in other friendly countries.’  Secretary Raimondo, you had better spend more time figuring how to get container ships into the L.A. and Long Beach, California, ports.  The vessels are backing up which means the American people are going to be suffering similar shortages of products as are the beleaguered Brits.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden won’t assert executive privilege when it comes to protecting court documents associated with President Donald J. Trump.
  90. 2021 Friday T: Political News I– Fox News has once again brought shame upon itself with the banning of “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani as well as his son Andrew, AND former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernie Kerik from appearing on the network.  Wow.  Talk about sliding over to the Dark Side, folks- wow.  Meanwhile, after the Democrats in the House passed their bill that will allow women to terminate the life of their babies at all stages of development and even after birth, Rep. Marjorie Taylor-Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, began heckling the jubilant Dems as they spoke with the press.  Frozen-faced Debbie Dingell, DS-MI 12th congressional district took offense and the two began shouting at one another.  The gist of the conversation was ‘do something about the border instead of murdering babies in the womb.’
  91. 2021 Friday U: U.S. House of Representatives News I– The U.S. House of Representatives voted 420-9 to provide $1 billion to Israel with which to beef up its Iron Dome missile defense system.  Here the names of those who opposed giving money to Israel with which to defend its people from terrorist attacks: Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district; Rep. André Carson, DS-IN 7th congressional district; Rep. Raúl Grijalva, DS-AZ 3rd congressional district; Rep. Marie Newman, DS-IL 3rd congressional district, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rep. Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MN 13th congressional district.  Two other Democrats- both lacking the balls to commit themselves to voting against the world’s sole Jewish state- were Rep. Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, and the notorious Rep. Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, voted ‘present.’  One Republican joined the ranks of “NO” votes- Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, voted against the funding because of his opposition to foreign aid of any kind.  One final Republican- Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-AZ 8th congressional district- is at home awaiting surgery to remove her gallbladder.  The Dems who voted against supporting Israel (or who lacked balls to vote NO) are the usual, far-left, anti-American, anti-Semitic, riffraff.
  92. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– The Pentagon announced today that it knows the identity of the ‘ISIS-K bomber who carried out the bombing at the Hamid Karzai International Airport last month killing 13 U.S. servicemembers outright and wounding God knows how many others.  Uh, we hate to say this but Mr. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark A. (Asshole) Milley, you said this LAST time and you murdered a family of 10, the patriarch of which was an ally of the United States.  Dude, just STFU.
  93. 2021 Friday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Baltimore, Maryland, has reached a deplorable statistic today what with the arrival at 250 homicides for the year so far.  Wow.   Next, we learned today that the mass shooter at the Kroger’s store in Collierville, Tennessee, was a third-party vendor, 29-year-old UK Thang.  He shot one person dead, wounded 14 others, and then turned the gun on himself when law enforcement was closing in on his POS ass.   Elsewhere, former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin- convicted of killing dope head George Floyd last year- is seeking to overturn his unfair conviction.
  94. 2021 Friday X: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Even though Pope Francis has begged U.S. Catholic leaders NOT to go all out against Pro-Death politicians, San Francisco archbishop of the Archdiocese of San Francisco- Salvatore J. Cordileone continues blasting Pro-Death advocate U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, one of the strongest voices in the United States for the murder of the unborn.  This woman is going to burn in hell.
  95. 2021 Friday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1697 what with a $20 million jackpot on the line: 17, 21, 27, 43, 56, and Mega 15.  Out of 55,802 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $3,686.  In Washington state, FOUR people had FOUR numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $500 apiece.
  96. 2022 Saturday: Observation of the Day– Yesterday, we began discussing the disaster befalling our country thanks to “Gropin’ Joe” Biden’s open border policy.  As you know, our blog is located in Kern County, California, and we have loads of illegal aliens here, more than we want or can handle.  Whenever we go to the store, we have to go in groups to beat them out of the way lest they attack, assault, or rob us.  At our eatery downtown, we have a security guard at both the front and backdoors to prevent them from entering our establishment and panhandling.  No one wants them, no one asked them to come, and whatever happens to them is of no concern to us.  Here is what illegal aliens do: first, they cut down the lack of affordable housing because Sacramento, Catholic Charities, and Democratic Party operatives scoop up rental houses and apartments so as to house these invaders.  All the while, more and more homeless Americans are living on the street.  Second, food prices are UP thanks to food banks being depleted, less food to go around, needy Americans go under-or-unfed while illegals get fat, plump, and listless.  Third, since we must educate all kids, education scores have dropped precipitously thanks to classrooms being overloaded with illegal alien brats who should be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Fourth, crime rates go up, robberies, rapes, assaults, kidnappings, drunken driving accidents and deaths, homicides, all of them go up.  Americans do not wish to go out at night because of the illegal alien criminals roaming the streets.  We close early so we can guard our homes at night because the illegals are all over the place, breaking in, jacking cars, stealing costly and irreplaceable catalytic converters.  We must regain control of our border and we must begin deporting ALL of this human fecal matter NOW.  Let me know what you think- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0962 a 24” x 36” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Deep Purple.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. 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:

Cheap Trick returned on June 27, 1990, with “Busted.”  The album attempted to recreate the success of the previous offering, “Lap of Luxury,” but failed in that endeavor.  Still, Epic Records could have tossed in the towel and gotten behind let’s say, ‘a Robin Zander’ solo career but thankfully did not go down that road as other record labels have with other acts.  One of the most notable of these sell-outs is Three Dog Night booting out its quartet of musicians so the three vocalists could rake in more bucks via using backup musicians which signaled the downhill slide for them.  Likewise, the record label of Jo Jo Gunne after four albums told vocalist Jay Ferguson to boot out his other three band members and to then embark on a solo career.  Good as it was, it was not ‘The Gunne.’  We have the same quartet of veteran musicians on this album- Nielsen, Zander, Carlos, and Petersson joined by some musical guests.  We hope you will look for this album as it is a worthy addition to your collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music.  Enjoy.

  72. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.391 per gallon, $3.100 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.869 in Washington state. [x]    Let us look at one other Iowa: $3.005.  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- Ireland: $6.877 per U.S. Gallon.[xi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,773,041,296,077 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xii]  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 Switzerland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Belgium with $253 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.
  73. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Rep. Dan Meuser, R-PA 9th congressional district, says the ‘GOP is going to get answers on this supposed ‘humanitarian aid’ to the Taliban.’  The Biden regime claims the ‘humanitarian aid of hundreds of millions of dollars was in the pipeline under President Donald J. Trump.’  Bullshit.  Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, says that a ‘reckoning is coming from the House GOP on Afghanistan.’
  74. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border for 176 days and Day No. 83 since her singular visit to view the problem.  What a disaster.
  75. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– We learned today that a pro-Chi-Com group has infiltrated Wikipedia and is inserting- wait for it- pro-Chi-Com propaganda across the ‘questionable site.’ Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister (and son of one of the Rolling Stones) Justin Trudeau is on the defensive as his ‘snap election’ seems to be going against HIM and HIS PARTY.  The Canadian people are tired of this limp-wristed cross-dressing pansy, and we hope they don’t use the Dominion Voting Systems machines in the upcoming election.  Finally, France continues to be upset over the snub by the new clique of Australia, United Kingdom, and the U.S. and has recalled its ambassadors from Australia, and the U.S.
  76. 2021 Friday I: Health and Medical Alerts– The U.S. is going to allot $2.1 billion to infection control, meaning it’s going to give money to hospitals to help control infections.  Question: WHY weren’t you doing this already?  Sounds like another portion of the money-go-round.  Meanwhile, in another devastating blow to the Biden regime, by a vote of 16-2, the Food and Drug Administration rejects the call for a THIRD booster shot.  It recommends the need only for those most at risk due to age and/or health issues.
  77. 2021 Friday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.89 (2) AstraZeneca $55.56 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.75 (4) BioNTech $359.18 (5) Moderna $430.05.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: (1) Pfizer $45.59 (2) AstraZeneca $56.26 (3) Johnson & Johnson $166.97 (4) BioNTech $349.19 (5) Moderna $449.38.  Some fluctuations here in ups and downs regarding the prices.

Here is what these stocks were worth a week ago today: (1) Beyond Meat: $112.90 (2) Maple Leaf Farms-Tofurkey: $21.42.  (We were only following two).
  81. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, that tomorrow’s ‘Justice for J6 Rally’ is going to be a setup.  We believe that tomorrow’s affair is going to be a “Mumbles” Pelosi setup what with loads of FBI informants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators, and that anyone who does not want to end up in the D.C. gulag with the other 400-plus poor souls would be wise to avoid the nation’s capital.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts one of the losers who voted to impeach him- retiring Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, RINO-OH 16th congressional district, by saying that the Rep.’s vote to impeach him was ‘very stupid.’  It was.  Look at what is happening to the losers who voted to impeach the 45th president.  One by one, they are losing support, becoming impotent, and will soon all be gone.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is weighing executive privilege in releasing documents related to President Donald J. Trump and the events of January 06, 2021.  Speaking of slobbering Joe, his approval ratings have imploded down to 44-percent- his lowest yet- which means in reality, the loser’s polls are nearer 34-30-percent than they are 44-percent.  Newsmax host Rob Finnerty says, ‘bye-bye Bide, the future we all knew was coming and didn’t want to admit.’ Meanwhile, in another slap to the feeble dictator, two large polluter nations were absent from Joe Biden’s follow-up climate summit.  Finally, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that ‘Joe Biden’s mandate regarding businesses forcing employees to get the Chi-Com vaccinations is divisive and that it undermines doctors.’
  83. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has interceded in the Purdue Pharma company settlement wanting to go after them some more.  In other Biden regime-related news, the impotent U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken deleted a tweet that said, “The U.S. stands with Hong Kong.”  Chi-Coms didn’t like that, eh?  Next- in something that sounds mighty unconstitutional to most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, the Biden regime is cutting off the supply of monoclonal antibodies to Red States.
  84. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Nineteen days after blowing up an Afghan ally of the United States and nine members of his family for being the ‘one’ who plotted and carried out the August 27, 2021, suicide bombing that killed 13 American servicemen-and-women, the Pentagon was forced to announce that it had erred taking ‘Taliban intel’ and blowing up this poor man and his family sight unseen.  Oooh, the mighty United States, whacking and stacking God knows who just as it did during the heady days of Obama-Biden.  Still, the Biden regime has better things to do- the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the way it holds ‘tranny prisoners’ in federal prisons.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Served papers yesterday while on a live radio program conducting an interview, famed political strategist Roger Stone said ‘there’s NO evidence supporting the lawsuit against him’ regarding U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the geriatric, nonagenarian leader of the House, and her claims of being behind the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  We believe you, Roger.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has okayed ‘100 National Guard troops to be on scene for the Saturday rally.’
  86. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– The Republican National Committee has released a new ad showing the countless times that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has lied, flipflopped, or laid bull crap on the American people. Ronna McDaniel- chair of the RNC- says that ‘Joe Biden’s COVID-19 mandates are the results of his far too many failures.’  Next, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says that ‘Joe Biden has NO business forcing COVID-19 mandates on the American people.’  Amen. 
  87. 2021 Friday T: Political News II– Axios reported today- to the dismay of the Biden regime- that under no circumstances will Senator Joe Manchin, D- W. VA, will vote ‘YES’ on the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Good.  Elsewhere, Arkansas senatorial candidate and U.S. Army veteran Jake Bequette says that the massive crowds attending college football games shows that the American people are ready to return to their lives.  The government had better pay attention to this. 
  88. 2021 Friday U: Political News III– Thirteen hardcore leftist Dems are pushing for expanded unemployment benefits in the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills.  Meanwhile, Health and Human Services tells Texas abortion providers, “We got your backs.”  Elsewhere, Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, D-MD 5th congressional district, says that the House will hold a vote so as to avoid imminent government default and subsequent shutdown.  Elsewhere, as mobs of illegal alien invaders swarm under the Del Rio, Texas, bridge, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that the “National Guard should be deployed to maintain order under and along that bridge as a swarm of 10,000 or more Haitian ‘asylum seekers’ mills about there.
  89. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– As outrage continues to grow regarding Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and his phone calls with the Chi-Coms, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien say the ‘NSA had NO intel suggesting anything that disingenuous fiction author Bob Woodward says in his new book, “Peril,” existed.  Mr. Woodward says that ‘General Milley called the Chi-Coms to warn them that he would warn them should Trump decide to nuke them in his final days.’  Gen. Milley must face courts marshal for being a traitor.
  90. 2021 Friday W: Business News– Ford Motor Company claims the demand for its EV Ford 150 electric trucks is so great that they are going to invest $250 million to increase production and add another 450 jobs in three plants in Michigan to meet this incredible demand.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Tesla is going to work with regulators on data security, something of which, they seem to have problems.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After many years, ‘jinx’ multi-millionaire Robert Durst finally was found guilty of murdering his best friend.  Meanwhile, the judge in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse- accused of murdering two Antifa POS- said that the prosecution cannot bring up ties between Mr. Rittenhouse and the patriotic organization, the Proud Boys.
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Big Tech News– Get this: the arbiter of what’s ‘true’ on the Internet, Google, and Apple, have removed imprisoned critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny’s ‘tactical voting app’ designed to mobilize the Russian people to fight back against the new communist dictator, Mr. Putin.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com intelligence gathering app- TikTok- has a new problem, the so-called ‘devious licks challenge’ that encourages American school-aged kids to break the law via vandalism.  Isn’t it about time we began nuking these sons of bitches?
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, the final Sears (and Roebuck) store- north of Chicago, Illinois- is set to close on November 14, 2021.  What a tragedy of mismanagement, not knowing its customers any longer, and being unable to morph with the times.  Sad, extremely sad, it did not have to happen.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: New York State News– Freshman Governor Kathy Hochul, D-NY, has given the people of her state a big gift: 191 freed inmates.  Meanwhile, three people went off on a New York City eatery host for requesting proof of vaccination before allowing them to enter.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Texas State News– Another Texas death row inmate has had his execution delayed over religious freedom claims.  Meanwhile, Governor Greg Abbott signed a $1.8 billion infrastructure bill to continue erecting the Trump border wall.  The governor said, ‘Joe Biden’s failures to do his job guarding the border has forced Texas to do the federal government’s job at protecting the border and its citizens.’  Meanwhile, state Representative Matt Krause, Republican, is going to primary sitting Attorney General Ken Paxton in 2022.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– Campus Reform students sign a petition to abolish the U.S. Constitution because it’s racist, doesn’t recognize gays, trannys, and people of color.  In other ‘moron news,’ U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-12th congressional district, a person whom capitalism has benefitted immensely, jumped on the socialist train while overseas and says that ‘capitalism has not served the U.S. well.’
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Today, Los Angeles, California, was announced to be the ‘Bedbug capital of the United States.’  Now that’s a distinction that every town and city in the entire United States covets.  Wow. No wonder we no longer like going to the city of (Fallen) Angels.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1695 what with a $400 million jackpot on the line: 17, 32, 40, 59, 61, and Mega 18.  Out of 130,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,613 apiece.
  99. 2021 Saturday: Observation of the Day– This past Tuesday, Greta Van Susteren had John “Perpetual War” Bolton on her show on Newsmax and the two discussed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to tactical nukes on the battlefield in Ukraine.   Look, if Adolf Hitler had nukes in 1944 or 1945, he would have used them against Great Britain and Russia for sure and the against U.S. if he could have delivered them.  That little cave-dwelling, slope-headed cretin Vladimir Putin sure as heck does have nukes and if he is facing Armageddon, then so will his enemies.  He already has severed energy supplies to the stupid-assed Europeans who came to depend upon him the same way American leaders delivered our country into the pockets of Xi Jinping.  We could be on the cusp of a global catastrophe much like the world was in early summer 1914 because back then, NO one believed that a far-off conflict in Eastern Europe could envelop almost all of the world in its horrifying embrace.  Yet, by the end of the year, three-quarters of the world was involved in the worst bloodletting the globe had ever seen. Serbia is not that far away from Ukraine so it’s easy to see how just the right spark- like a strike on one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants- could be the spark of the End Times.  Let us pray that someone dispatches Vladimir Putin and soon so we can avoid just such an outcome.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick next delivered a four-tune EP on June 02, 1980, the acclaimed “Found All the Parts.”  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), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Being an extended play much like a double-sided single with two tunes on either side, the band provides some awesome tunes.  First, we have a cover of the Beatles’ “Day Tripper” followed by “Can’t Hold On” followed by two more tracks, “Such a Good Girl” and “Take Me, I’m Yours.”  You can seek this one out at your favorite site for music or you can purchase the extended version of tomorrow’s offering as it has all four of these tunes added as bonus tracks.  Either way, the decision rests with you and your pocketbook.  Enjoy.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

Qassim Soleimani.  Light ‘em up!

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.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  At the time, we damned sure should have promoted the music of its various members such as Roger “Jim” McGuinn, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark, David Crosby (along with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and their associated catalog of group and solo endeavors), as well as later Byrds such as Gene Parsons and Skip Battin, among others.  We hope to do so one day and hope that you will indulge us when we do.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too. 

[iv] We are not sure as to when we will promote the music of the Pretenders but when we do, you will be the first to know so rejoice.

[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 promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] The father of Mitt Romney who plagues our modern times with his RINO BS.

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

246. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 03, 2022

I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible, much-desired outcome this evening. Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow? He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.

Trump heads to Motown- Detroit- to launch an outreach to black Americans living in poverty.  In Santa Clara, California, local police announce a plan to BOYCOTT San Francisco 49ers games following the anti-cop, anti-American flag protests launched by failed QB Colin Kaepernick.  Good for you!

  62. 2019 Tuesday: Following the recent shootings in El Paso, Texas, in which, a nutcase went out ‘hunting Mexicans’ and murdered quite a few people, Walmart announces that it will stop selling handguns and some ammunition as well as ask its customers NOT to open-carry when visiting their stores.  Meanwhile, in the Bahamas, Hurricane Dorian finally heads back out to sea after having stalled over its northern islands what with- at least- 50 people dead and more than 200 others missing.
  63. 2020 Thursday: Last week, approximately 881,000 new jobless claims occurred bringing the unemployment numbers for Americans to 13,300,000.  On the campaign trail today, President Donald J. Trump is blitzing Pennsylvania while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is in Kenosha, Wisconsin, pandering to the family of Jacob Blake.  Polls show Biden has ‘commanding leads’ in battleground states such as Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Arizona.  Elsewhere, Antioch, California, Mayor Sean Wright blasts Contra Costa County District Attorney Diane Beckton that before she prosecutes looters, she will first make the determination as to whether they NEEDED the items they stole.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is beginning the process of slashing federal funding to four largely Democratic Party-held cities- Seattle, Portland, Oregon, New York City, and Washington D.C. until they reestablish and enforce law and order.  In response to this, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo tells POTUS ‘YOU CAN’T COME TO NEW YORK- OR ELSE.’ Finally, Facebook announces it will ban all political ads one week out from the November elections in the hope it can prevent Russian disinformation from swaying voters to vote ‘correctly,’ meaning for “Gropin’ Joe” Biden and not for President Donald J. Trump.
  64. 2020 Thursday A: California state Senator Scott Wiener sends SB 145 legislation to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his signature.  The bill will give judges ‘discretion’ in sentencing pedophiles and will lower penalties for child rape provided the difference in age between the so-called ‘willing child’ and the rapist is 10 years of less.  Hence, a 20-year-old sexual deviate can rape a 10-year-old child either anally or orally by claiming the youngster was a ‘willing participant’ in his rape.  Someone somewhere, do something to Senator Wiener- within the scope of the law.  California is indeed Sodom and Gomorrah. God, wipe out the state!
  65. 2020 Thursday B: Speaker Pelosi continues screeching that she ‘was framed’ for Hairgate, promising to get even with those who ‘set her up’ and was able to intimidate the hairdresser who gave her and wash and blowout into saying that ‘yes, she was setup.’  What is clear here is that Speaker Pelosi knows she is in the wrong because she canceled her weekly press conference today as she fears having to answer questions about this scandalous behavior.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 346,217 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 57,861 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xvi]        
  74. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.397 per gallon, $3.021 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.891 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Puerto Rico: $3.558.  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- Montenegro: $6.057 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,719,043,045,883 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 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.
  75. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As the Chinese move into Afghanistan, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, says they are going to find it hard going.  We mentioned this a while back because there are so many disparate groups in Afghanistan that it will be extremely easy for them to come into conflict with the Chinese.  Muslims despise communists and the former Soviet Union understands this extremely well.   When the Taliban or ISIS-K or the warrior tribes begin attacking Chinese infrastructure and killing their people, it will be problematic for the bottom line in Beijing.  The Chinese will have to respond heavy-handedly, and we suspect they could find themselves embroiled in their own lengthy war, perhaps 40 years?
  76. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, friends- today is Day No. 163 for the globally famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 70 since her one and only visit to the region.  Otherwise, she has been doing everything imaginable to avoid doing her job.  What a shame.  According to One America News network, here are the astounding numbers for both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens and the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals within the United States thanks to the absent Biden regime.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $493,569,376.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the refuse of the Third World for calendar year, 2021: $268,986,777,600.  Third, here is the number for illegals who have swarmed across our border for just this year: 2,756,899.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE for illegal aliens residing in our country, swamping hospitals, overrunning schools, sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers 24/7/365: 36,756,900.  You know what we say- the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million of the scumbags.  Let’s round them up, throw them aboard southbound planes, trains, automobiles, trucks, and even tramp steamers and send them back to whence the f**k they came. (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).  Note- more than $54 million has been donated to Texas to continue the building of its border wall.  Excellent.
  77. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The People’s Republic of China announced today that it is going to retain its embassy in Kabul and will provide economic assistance to the Taliban.  They will also work at building oil pipelines from Iran through the so-called “Graveyard of Empires” to western China.  In other overseas news, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga is set to resign as the end of the month following a collapse in his poll numbers.  His battle against COVID-19 has not been as good as anticipated and he is doing the honorable thing as Joe Biden should in the United States.   New elections will occur soon.
  78. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is setting harsher measures regarding COVID-19 after shunning vaccine help from neighboring China.  Uh-oh.  Loads of people are going to die.  Meanwhile, China is going to scrub all effeminate men from its airwaves.  Perhaps we should do that here in the United States? 
  79. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new report says that 83-percent of recent blood donations ALL show evidence of COVID-19 antibodies.  Meanwhile, as the U.S. government continues pushing forward with demanding COVID-19 booster shots (again, follow the money), the European Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there is “NO evidence of a need for a third shot.”  The FDA said today that it’s going to take additional time to determine whether a need for a booster (or a never-ending series of booster) shots before ordering them.  Still, if and when we go down this crazy road, Pfizer will be the one pumping out the boosters.  (Note- everyone begin investing in Pfizer stock.  NOW).
  80. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– A new report suggests that ‘unvaccinated cadets at the U.S. Border Patrol Academy could soon be booted unless they roll up their arms for the jab.  Wow.  Next, crazy Dr. Ashish Jha says, ‘it’s not crazy to think there is a need for a third round of COVID-19 booster shots.’  Dr. Jha, do us a favor: shut the hell up.  WHY do we need COVID-19 vaccines much less a damned booster shot when the vaccines contain an extinct virus?  The original virus is long since gone, we are moving through one variant after another such as the Delta, the Lambda, and now the notorious ‘MU.’  Stop spreading bullshit, please.  Meanwhile, a new Rasmussen poll says that viewers of conservative news channels have better understanding of the risks associated with the vaccines or of death facing them whether they get the vaccines or don’t get the vaccines.
  81. 2021 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $58.83 (3) Johnson & Johnson $175.04 (4) BioNTech $334.30 (5) Moderna $416.70.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: -(1) Pfizer $46.60 (2) AstraZeneca $58.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $172.93 (4) BioNTech $358.48 (5) Moderna $382.22.  See the trend?  FOLLOW THE MONEY!
  82. 2021 Friday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.65 (2) General Dynamics: $202.46 (3) Boeing: $218.17 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.00 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $365.93.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today:  Raytheon: $85.40 (2) General Dynamics: $199.72 (3) Boeing: $221.66 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.99 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $364.99.  Remain vigilant.  Invest in companies you believe in because our elected leaders and the denizens of the Deep State are investing in these companies and in the pharmaceutical stocks.  FOLLOW THE MONEY!
  83. 2021 Friday N: 2020 Election Audit– People are beginning to inquire as to WHEN the Arizona 2020 Election audit results are going to be released?  So far, NO WORD as to when which is leading some people to speculate that Attorney General Mark Brnovich is sitting atop them because the RINO has been bought off by Democrat allies.  We will keep you posted.  Meanwhile, the Badger State is ordering its own 2020 Election Audit as Pennsylvania prepares to do.
  84. 2021 Friday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump endorsed famed NFL star Hershel Walker to defeat freshman Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, in November 2022.  Excellent choice.  Speaking of the President, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th CD, says he believes that President Trump will be running for a third term in 2024. 
  85. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators are demanding feeble old Joe Biden provide information on the numbers of Americans he abandoned behind the lines in Afghanistan.  Next, bowing to pressure from the American people, Joe Biden released an executive order ordering the FBI to release all relevant information concerning September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the role the Saudis played in it.  We shall see what happens.  Finally, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel reported tonight that financial aid will make its way to the Taliban because they have promised to combat CLIMATE CHANGE.  How about that?  (Joe, we’ll fight CLIMATE CHANGE, too, by stop eating gaseous vegetables.  How do we get some of this easy money?)
  86. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Crazy old Joe Biden is lying yet again, this time saying how he ‘spent a lot of time at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, following the white supremacist attack on the place of worship back on October 27, 2018.’  Now, Joe believes he was Donald J. Trump because President Trump is the man who visited the site and met with the rabbi, not senile old Joe.
  87. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– New reports suggest that Susan Rice, Ron Klain, and Barack Hussein Obama are the ones calling the shots in the sagging ears of senile old Joe Biden.  Next, this is extremely puzzling, and we heard today that the Biden regime wants to remove penalties on the trafficking of deadly fentanyl into the United States.  WTF?
  88. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– Much excitement is swirling around the GOP candidate- Cicely Davis- seeking to unseat the extremely unpopular rabble rouser, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th CD, in 2022.  Omar is reputed to have married her brother to scam the U.S. immigration system and is a strong advocate of jihad and other Islamist ideas.  We will send money to Ms. Davis.  Omar and her fellow (Suicide) Squad skanks- Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, and Cori “The Bitch” Bush all must be ejected from office in November 2022 and onto the scrap heap of defeated left-wing politicians.
  89. 2021 Friday T: Economic News– The White House is running for cover because the expected 720,000 new jobs in the month of July collapsed to a measly 235,00 jobs, most of which, we suspect are little more than ‘hamburger-flipper jobs.’  Shame on the Biden regime for destroying the U.S. economy.  Still, it did not stop the brain-dead usurper in the White House to take a dig at President Donald J. Trump during a ‘jobs speech’ today when he mumbled, “I took on a nation in crisis.”  Joe, YOU caused the crisis, the nation was doing quite well before you stole the 2020 Presidential Election.   In other news, Paris Dennard who once worked with Donald J. Trump and who works for the GOP says that Joe Biden has failed the black community.  He pointed out that unemployment for black males has gone up to 9.1 percent, for black females to 7.9 percent, and for black youths to 17.9 percent.  Man, oh, man, Joe Biden, you are helping black Americans extremely well, aren’t you?  You loser.
  90. 2021 Friday U: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former Roman Catholic Church Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Massachusetts is set to be arraigned on charged he molested a teenager.  Meanwhile, Jacob Chansley, the so-called QANON shaman reportedly is taking a plea deal that will see him do 41-51 months behind bars instead of close to 50 for his role in wandering into the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.
  91. 2021 Friday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, plans to follow the Texas Pro-Life law in her state.  She wants to make South Dakota a strong Pro-Life refuge and not a barbarous, baby chop shop like many leftist-controlled states. [xx]  Speaking of Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton says that abortion law ‘must be at the state level and not the federal.’  We concur.  San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone says that abortion is not a ‘religious issues’ but a ‘fundamental human rights issue.’  Still, the Biden regime aided by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY are working overtime to uncover a scheme by which they can overturn the new Texas fetal heartbeat law.  A Senate panel is now carrying out a probe on this ‘evil law,’ one the U.S. Supreme Court allowed to stand… Finally, liberal groups are suing individual Texas lawmakers over the new fetal heartbeat law in the Lone Star State.
  92. 2021 Friday W: Social Media News – Twitter launched a new feature that will allow SOME users to earn money from tweeting.  Bet you won’t see any conservatives making any money from Twitter.   Meanwhile, YouTube censored a video supporting the recall of California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  Shame on them.
  93. 2021 Friday X: Big Tech News– Apple Inc. finally got around to eliminating a homeless community on their property in Silicon Valley.  They offered all manner of aid and help to its inhabitants, most of whom turned it down and wandered away when the area was cleansed, sanitized, and made useful again.  Advocates of urban outdoorsmen raised a BIG STINK, but it is cruel to allow people to live like animals.  We must reclaim and rehabilitate them and return them to society as contributing members.
  94. 2021 Friday Y: Weather News I– In New York City in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, at least 44 people have lost their lives in various storm-related mishaps.  Some drowned in basement apartments, others were swept away, and still others drowned in submerged vehicles.  The Democrats are howling that Global Warming is the root cause but folks, hurricanes typically occur every year and some of them can be extremely destructive.   Speaking of Ida, slobbering Joe Biden visited New Orleans today to visit storm-related damage there and lo and behold NOT a single outcry from the Fake News Media screeching that Joe was ‘taking away resources by his visit that were needed elsewhere.’  Funny how this works… Elsewhere, when Ida hit New Jersey, the storm-generated tornado we saw on the news had winds of 150 mph.  Wow.
  95. 2021 Friday Z: War on Terror News-Terrorism News-Jihad News– Member of the ‘Beatles,’ an ISIS execution group, British-born Alexanda Kotey, pled guilty in a U.S. courtroom to murdering and torturing numerous people, Americans among them, overseas in the now defeated ISIS caliphate.  He is set to spend the remainder of his crappy life in a federal prison.  In other news, police in New Zealand swarmed a local grocery store after a jihadist whipped out a large knife and began slashing shoppers and within minutes, shot the suspect dead.  Good.  Hang his corpse up for the crows.
  96. 2021 Friday AA: California State News– California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, DS, says that ’21 percent of the mail-in ballots in the recall election of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom are already pouring in.’  This should give the Dems ample opportunity to see how many ballots they are going to have to order from other states so they can maintain this POS governor in office.
  97. 2021 Friday BB: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The stupid California teacher Annette Franco who bragged in a TikTok video how she removed the reviled American flag from her grade school classroom and supplanted it with the homosexual rainbow flag and had her kids pledge allegiance to the foul thing has been removed from the classroom.  Yet, she will sit in a CTA rubber room for the rest of her days drawing her full check and benefits.
  98. 2021 Friday CC: Observation of the Day– Here’s an observation for you: the Ancient Greeks were ‘WOKE,’ and the Romans steamrolled over them.  More than a thousand years later, the Ancient Romans equally became ‘WOKE’ and the barbarians overran them.  For all you pansified losers prancing around demanding all things ‘WOKE,’ if you succeed, you are more or less sealing the fate of the United States- the brightest spot on the planet for human rights- by guaranteeing we are more concerned with gender, perversion, homosexuality, and other signs of the End Times.  However, you will be among the first to go when the Chinese, the Russians, the Islamists, or some other culture takes us over.  It will be a pleasure watching you thrown from skyscrapers, hung from helicopters and construction cranes, or any of the other ways devised by the enemies of human rights and freedoms.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.  
  99. 2021 Friday DD: Observation of the Day II– Regarding abortion, whatever happened to personal responsibility?  The fact that women continue getting knocked up implies that relations between men and women have become extremely sloppy.  While most gay men use condoms, it appears that women are open to any and all penetration sans any form of birth control (condoms, IUDs, birth control pills, and other easily accessible forms of preventing unwanted pregnancies) which then leaves abortion as the ONLY form of correcting a ‘mistake.’  I am inclined to believe that where once President Bill Clinton said that abortion should be ‘safe, legal, and rare,’ and that most Americans can accept termination of a pregnancy within the first trimester, the reason for abortion at ALL STAGES of fetal and even post-fetal development, i.e., birth, is because Planned Parenthood encourages it.  The reason for the encouragement is because they make BIG BUCKS just as they can continue the slaughter of babies of color, black women being number one among the recipients of abortions.  This is evil and it must stop.  Once a country makes it legal (and easy) to get rid of unwanted babies, the deformed, the mentally ill, and the old and senile (watch out, Joe) will be the next.  Think about it.  The Nazis labeled the unwanted as ‘useless eaters,’ people who contributed nothing to society (in their view) and who were in need of euthanasia.  Let’s return to men and women exercising personal responsibility and not becoming part of the Satanic offerings the left wants us all to be.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.
  100. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1691 what with a $323 million jackpot on the line: 07, 10, 12, 61, 65, and Mega 03.  Out of 111,113 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,292.
  101. 2021 Friday FF: Friends, the government says via a recent white paper that if an American citizen questions the efficacy of wearing masks or the results of the 2020 Presidential and National Elections, that person can and most likely will be considered a TERRORIST.  If that is the case, then so be it but I will tell our friends in the government this: there are far more of us than there are of YOU.  You would be wise to remember that.  Also, the moment the Joestapo shows up, demand a lawyer.  Period.  God bless America!
  102. 2022 Saturday: I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible outcome this evening.  Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow?  He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.  I am praying for a similar outcome because our nation cannot stand much more of the hateful, racist, divisiveness that is ripping the fabric of our great nation apart.  As I’ve said, I think arresting the man in a public setting will set off his minions which will then lead to civil unrest across the country thus giving us the pretext for our noble president to declare martial law and to postpone the November elections.  We must postpone the elections so as to secure our imperiled nation and we must send all the insurrectionists to reeducation camps so they can become contributing members of society once again.  Let’s take a page out of the China-Uighur Muslim playbook and put it to good use here- I think it will work.  Let me know what you think- Chef Itzi Nakamura.

238. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2022

I would like to say that IF the United Nations cannot find a way to stop this extremely illegal and criminal war, then the UN should disband. We should kick this corrupt and phony organization out of the United States and have them go set up shop in Beijing, another illicit, criminal-run nation. The UN obviously is a Third World bandstand for global dictators and murderers and does absolutely nothing to prevent wars, to stop wars, or to punish evildoers such as Vladimir Putin.

  61. 2016 Friday: San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick kneels for the first time in protest of the U.S. flag because of police brutality and systemic racism (and whatever else was pissing him off) prior to a game at Qualcomm Stadium against the San Diego Chargers.

  65. 2020 Wednesday: Basement-dwelling “Pro-China Joe” Biden says the Republican National Convention is an ‘alternate reality.’  His good pal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi mumbles that the House will investigate Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s speech from Jerusalem the previous night as some sort of illegal speech.  Speaking of angry Democrats, BIG LOSER Hillary Rodham Clinton continues telling the Biden campaign “Not to concede under any circumstances on Election Day” as she believes ‘he will eventually win.”  Four years ago, she was blasting Donald J. Trump for saying he would have to ‘wait and see’ before accepting the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.  My, how times have changed.  Meanwhile, Democrats continue attacking First Lady Melania Trump for ‘not being able to speak English when she gave her speech in the White House rose garden the previous night.’  Well, many believe it’s better to have a first lady with an accent than one with a swinging dill pickle like the prior one.  Add to this the fact that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, is attempting to take a second bite at the apple by demanding Deutsche Bank hand over President Trump’s financial records.   Finally, Democrats are beginning to express their dissatisfaction with “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s ‘basement strategy.’  Hell, we could have told you he wasn’t going to win if he continues on addressing the nation from his bunker.
