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

  55. 2010 Sunday: Somali pirates take to the high seas once again and capture a German oil tanker plying the waters off East Africa.  Seems like it’s getting about time to go in there and crucify these scumbags the way Caesar did pirates in the Mediterranean when he was a young man.  How about the modern equivalent?  Let’s use neutron bombs on these bastards.
  56. 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad.  (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge).  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.  A decade from now, they will be surpassing us.

  59. 2014 Friday: For the first time since annexing the Crimea, Russian President Vladimir Putin visits the region on the holiday commemorating the Soviet victory over Nazi Germany.  Who will stop this murderous POS?  Meanwhile, the South Korean military announces that three drones that penetrated its airspace came from North Korea.

Trump abruptly fired worthless FBI Director James Comey, ousting the nation’s top law enforcement official in the midst of an FBI investigation into whether Trump’s campaign had ties to Russia’s meddling in the election that sent him to the White House.  Two years later, it appears that Comey was involved in a scheme the Democrats and the Deep State engineered first to prevent the election of Trump and then to remove him via a coup.  We are awaiting Comey to be charged along with James Clapper, John Brennan, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his girlfriend Lisa Page, and numerous other scumbags involved in this ever-evolving crime.  Meanwhile, Governor Ahok of Jakarta, a Christian, is given a two-year sentence for ‘blasphemy’ seeing as how Indonesia is a predominantly Muslim nation.

  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t release the numbers of confirmed recoveries.   Moving on to communist China, Beijing continues to wail they have 88,423 (same number) confirmed cases what with 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  My, my, my, why continue to lie, People’s Republic of China?  
  66. 2020 Saturday A: In Tullahoma, Oklahoma, famed rock-and-roller, Little Richard, died at age 87.  Little Richard[vi] was famous for so many songs but “Lucille,” “Tutti-Frutti,” and “Good Golly, Miss Molly” are the ones that leap out.  Check him out.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

114. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2022:

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Peter Vivian Daniel; U.S. Secretary of Defense Louis A. Johnson; Badfinger featuring Pete Ham, Blondie featuring Nigel Harrison, Creedence Clearwater Revival featuring Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, “Diamond Dogs” by David Bowie, and the Electric Prunes featuring Preston Ritter:

  1. 858 Wednesday: St. Nicholas I succeeds the 104th Pope Benedict III to become the 105th Roman Catholic Pope.

  7. 1784 Saturday: The future 28th associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court- Peter Vivian Daniel- was born in Stafford County, Virginia, on this date.  A Democrat, he was appointed to the nation’s high court by President Martin Van Buren to fill the seat vacated by 25th Associate Justice Philip Pendleton Barbour.  Daniel served on the Supreme Court from 01-10-1842 to 05-31-1860 when he died.
  8. 1792 Tuesday: Captain Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle composed the national anthem of France, “La Marseillaise,” on this date.

  13. 1877 Tuesday: In defense of Romania, Russia declares war on the Ottoman Empire.  Meanwhile, the last Federal occupation troops withdraw from the South, departing through New Orleans, Louisiana, for home.  This would open the door to horrendous actions by Southern Democrats and their allies, the Ku Klux Klan.  Every Black American needs to recall who the REAL villains in their mistreatment were and have been: the two groups above are responsible for their persecution and for Jim Crow/Segregation laws.
  14. 1884 Thursday: In Atlanta, Georgia, the Black National Physicians Organization organizes.

  19. 1915 Saturday: What’s regarded as the start of the Armenian Genocide began as the Ottoman Empire rounded up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople.  Although persecutions against Christians had been ongoing since Turkey joined the Central Powers- German Empire, Austro-Hungary, and Bulgaria- they were going to step up the pressure, fearful that they would have enemies in their rear areas.  Elsewhere, on the Western Front, the Second Battle of Ypres continues as Germans continue making gains.  On the Eastern Front, the Austro-Hungarians are making headway in the western Ukraine against the Russian bear.
  20. 1916 Monday: Some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Uprising by seizing several key sites in Dublin; however, the British crushed it almost a week later.   The Irish felt that with the British occupiers suffering heavy losses in World War I, this might be a grand opportunity to drive them out of the Emerald Isle.
  21. 1917 Tuesday: Fighting continues to rage in the French countryside as British, French, and German forces throw all they have at one another.  Elsewhere, the Ukraine demands independence from Czarist Russia.
  22. 1918 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the Somme as the Germans continue their all-out offensive to drive the Allies out of the war.  Starvation and lack of medicine is plaguing both sides in this titanic struggle, one that has another 4-5 months to go.   Meanwhile, the British and Turks announce a decision for a prisoner exchange.
  23. 1937 Saturday: In Lima, Ohio, future saxophonist with Blood, Sweat & Tears in 1972- Joe Henderson is born.
  24. 1940 Wednesday: German forces in Norway continue solidifying their positions as reinforcements arrive with which to counter the Brits who are trying to keep Norway free and independent.  However, preparations for the invasion of France continue as Germans continue building their troop strength up, much of it in the heavily wooded Ardennes Forest.
  25. 1941 Thursday: Resistance in Greece is dying as the Germans and their allied Axis troops continue pushing Greek and British defenders back to the southern portion of the country.  In Yugoslavia, resistance is also sputtering to an end.  Elsewhere, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt orders military leaders to keep track of all German Kriegsmarine movements so the information can be forwarded to the British government, on the sly of course, as the U.S. is not yet in the war.
  26. 1942 Friday: The Luftwaffe steps up its attacks against British heritage sites as heavy bombers target sites up and down the eastern coast of Great Britain.  The British are determined to withstand the assault while the Germans are doing their best to bomb them into submission.
  27. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews.  The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.  In response, the Germans begin setting buildings on fire.  However, the defenders in these buildings either fight to the death or retreat through pre-cut holes in walls or into the sewers to fight another day.
  28. 1944 Monday: The first B-29 arrived in Nationalist China, flying ‘over the hump’ of the Himalayas.  Elsewhere, now that Italy is on the Allied side, their warplanes are flying sorties against their former German allies in the Aegean Sea attacking garrisons holding islands and ports.   The Germans respond with violence against Italian prisoners.
  29. 1945 Tuesday: Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, future drummer of both Creedence Clearwater Revival[i] and Creedence Clearwater Revisited, was born in Palo Alto, California, on this date in history.  Meanwhile in World War II, the Soviets continue their pincer movement around Berlin as one army begins fighting into the suburbs from the South while from the east, another is pummeling its way into the city from that direction.  Germans are still able to enter and exit the city at this time as the Soviets have not yet sealed the city off on all sides.  Hitler has a chance to fly out but won’t take it- or so we believe.
  30. 1949 Sunday: Future drummer of the psychedelic rock band, the Electric Prunes- Preston Ritter- is born on this date.[ii]
  31. 1951 Tuesday: Nigel Harrison—future bassist with the New York rock band, Blondie[iii] (1978-82 / 1997)—is born in Stockport, Cheshire, England, on this date.

  33. 1953 Friday: British statesman Winston Churchill was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.
  34. 1954 Saturday: After the heavy fighting on and around Huguette 6 last night and early this morning, French commanders in Dien Bien Phu understand that they no longer have the manpower on hand to launch major counterattacks against their communist opponents.  Losses last night were fierce with the loss of several units whose survivors were cobbled together into a new unit.   According to author Martin Windrow, morale was once again flagging on both sides as French defenders had been going with little sleep, few hot meals, and hardly any baths now for 45 days while the communists were scraping up reserves from across the countryside and trying to reinvigorate them for the third phase of the battle.  Casualties were horrendous for both sides. 
  35. 1961 Monday: Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles Dodgers struck out 18 batters, becoming the first major-league pitcher to do so on two separate occasions.  Elsewhere, President John F. Kennedy accepted ‘sole responsibility’ for the disaster HE set in motion at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba.  He committed Cuban exiles to action to overthrow Fidel Castro and then in their hour of need, he abandoned them to death or to long prison terms in Cuban prisons.  
  36. 1962 Tuesday: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology achieved the first satellite relay of a television signal, using NASA’s Echo 1 balloon satellite to bounce a video image from Camp Parks, California, to Westford, Massachusetts.

  40. 1967 Monday: Soviet astronaut Vladimir Komarov died when his craft crashed with a tangled parachute.  Meanwhile, the newest Greek regime banned the wearing of miniskirts.

  42. 1970 Friday: China launches its first satellite Dong Fang Honk I which continually transmitted a song, “The East is Red.”  Flipping communist SOBS[iv].  
  43. 1971 Saturday: In Tampa, Florida, heavyweight boxer Earnie Shavers scores a TKO at the 0:33 second mark of Round 4 in a scheduled 10-round heavyweight bout over opponent, Willie Johnson.  This put Shavers’ record to 25-2.
  44. 1973 Tuesday: Albert Sabin reported that herpes viruses were factors in nine kinds of cancer.
  45. 1974 Wednesday: The NFL grants a franchise team to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Meanwhile, David Bowie[v] released “Diamond Dogs.”  
  46. 1975 Thursday: In Weybridge, Surrey, England, Peter Ham—guitarist/vocalist with the British rock band, Badfinger[vi]—committed suicide on this date by hanging himself from the rafters of his garage; he was just 27-years-old.
  47. 1980 Thursday: To rescue the American hostages being held in Tehran, Iran, the operation fails as the helicopters either crash or stall due to an unforeseen sandstorm.  Eight American special operations soldiers die as a result, this singular event seals the fate of President Jimmy Carter in the November elections.
  48. 1982 Saturday: In West Germany, 150 followers of the Ayatollah Khomeini assault the student dormitory at a college campus. 
  49. 1990 Tuesday: East and West Germany agree to merge currencies and economies as of July 01, 1990, on the road to German Reunification.  Elsewhere, the space shuttle Discovery lifts off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying the $1.5 billion Hubble Space Telescope into orbit.

  51. 1995 Monday: A package bomb linked to the Unabomber explodes, killing Gilbert B. Murray.

  53. 2004 Saturday: The United States lifts economic sanctions imposed on Libya 18 years previously for its cooperation in eliminating weapons of mass destruction.   Meanwhile, the insurgency in Iraq is gathering steam as attacks on oil tankers in Basra occur as do suicide bombings around Sadr City that kill Iraqi government forces.  The bloom is quickly off the rose.  The U.S. should never have launched the invasion the previous year and yet, they did.  George W. Bush broke it; he now owns it.
  54. 2005 Sunday: Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger undergoes inauguration as the 265th pope of the Roman Catholic Church, taking the papal name of Benedict XVI.   Meanwhile, in Kuwait, 7,000 angry Bengali workers storm the Bangladeshi embassy demanding redress for unpaid wages.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia arrest 40 Pakistani Christians brazenly practicing their faith in Riyadh.  NOT good, folks, not good…for them.
  55. 2006 Monday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lifts a 27-year-old ban on women attending public sporting events.  Wow.  Modernization on the way?  Nope.   
  56. 2007 Tuesday: Hamas decides to do what it does best today: terrorism.  They launch a barrage of missiles, rockets, and mortar shells into neighboring Israel.  Scumbags.  Use neutron bombs on this human garbage to cleanse the region of their pestilence.  Elsewhere, Kevin Tillman, brother of NFL star and slain soldier in the Afghan War Pat Tillman, testifies before Congress accusing the Bush administration of manipulating his ‘friendly fire’ death into something with which to increase recruitment and support for the ongoing regime change wars.
  57. 2008 Thursday: Following the recent destruction of a nuclear facility in Syria by the Israelis, the United States reports that North Korean technicians helped the Syrians build the reactor.  Good thing the Israelis blew it up.  Meanwhile, following Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s BIG WIN in Pennsylvania this past Tuesday, she has raked in $10 million in donations.  Both she and her opponent, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, are focusing their attentions on Indiana, the next big state in the primary battles.  Elsewhere, the United Nations is crying that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing them from getting aid to the Palestinians.
  58. 2009 Friday: Not to be outdone by terrorists in Iraq yesterday, slavering jihadis carry out yet another suicide bombing in Baghdad, killing at least 80 people and wounding or crippling another 125.  Time to start lighting up the terrorists, we say, “Use neutron bombs, send these scumbags straight to hell.”  Elsewhere, North Korea plans to try two Current TV journalists they claim were on the soil, but evidence shows they were on the Chinese side of the Yalu River and were kidnapped by the North Koreans.  WTF?
  59. 2010 Saturday: Pakistani Taliban are launching attacks all over the place but especially against NATO supply lines.  The jihadist thugs torch six NATO fuel tankers and also blow up at least 30 people in a suicide attack on a prison van carrying thugs to prison.
  60. 2011 Sunday: Pope Benedict XVI performs Easter Mass at St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City; he calls for dialogue and diplomacy to end Libya’s unrest.  Elsewhere, a group of Jewish worshippers decided to visit a holy site in the Palestinian-controlled city without coordinating their visit with Israeli Defense Forces as required by law.  They went and prayed without event; then, when returning home, they mixed it up with Palestinian law enforcement who lit them up and killed at least one of the worshippers and injured several others.  Obey the law.  
  61. 2012 Tuesday: The Obama-controlled Pentagon is creating a new intelligence service, the Defense Clandestine Service that will (supposedly) investigate threats to U.S. national interests coming from nations such as North Korea, the Chi-Coms, and Iran.  Good.  Just what we need.  Another flipping spy agency in the hands of Barack Hussein Obama.  Meanwhile, Al-Jazeera reports that the case against imprisoned Pfc. Bradley Manning must be thrown out due to prosecutorial misconduct.
  62. 2013 Wednesday: Americans learn the FBI and CIA had previous intelligence from Russia warning U.S. intelligence agencies about Tamerlane Tsarnaev’s extremist connections before the Boston Marathon bombings.   Meanwhile, in Manchester, Illinois, a mass shooting occurs leaving five dead and another one or two injured.  As police track down the shooter and engage, the gunman is killed.
  63. 2014 Thursday:  The Federal Communications Commission moves away from the idea of net neutrality, in which all Internet users can equally access and view content; the agency instead proposes to allow large companies to pay Internet service providers for access to faster streaming “lanes.”  Meanwhile, it sounds like President Barack Hussein Obama, aka the Bamster, listened to us yesterday.  He is blasting Russian dictator Vladimir Putin for waging a war of aggression in the Ukraine and is threatening additional sanctions on Moscow.
  64. 2015 Friday: As the civil war continues raging in Yemen, UNICEF reports that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of children have been slain, wounded, or maimed for life in the savage fighting there.  Iran is meddling in this war, stirring up trouble for the Saudis and the rest of the Sunni world.  They believe that if they can bring Shias to power in Yemen, they will have the Kingdom nearly surrounded.
  65. 2016 Sunday: With the U.S. silent about the upcoming joint military exercises with South Korea, North Korea moves up 300 ballistic missile launchers near the demilitarized zone on the chance they may have to go to war with both the U.S. and their southern neighbors.  Speaking of President Obama, he says the U.S. won’t be deploying ground troops to Syria and sadly, he believes the last nine months of his time in office will not see ISIS defeated.  (Note- because YOU never tried, Bamster).
  66. 2017 Monday: Arkansas puts their thumb in the eyes of the leftists as it becomes the first state to execute NOT one murderer but two on the same day, something that has not occurred since 2000.  Convicted murderers Jack Jones Jr. and Marcel Williams meet their Maker via lethal injection.
  67. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump hosts his first state dinner for visiting French President Emanuel Macron.  Elsewhere, according to IFPI, streaming music service sales overtake that of CDs, LPs, and tapes.  Such a shame but young people are extremely unintelligent when it comes to sound quality.  Elsewhere, Thailand raises its hand and suggests that it would like to hold the upcoming summit between the United States and North Korea.
  68. 2019 Wednesday: “Brave Leader” Kim Jong Un arrives in Vladivostok, Russia, aboard his armored private train for his first meetings with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.  The talks will begin tomorrow.  Speaking of the ‘Brave Leader,’ four of his foreign ministry officials underwent execution over his failed second summit with President Donald J. Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, back in February.  Accused of handing over sensitive information to the Americans, these unlucky four were lucky enough that all they faced was the firing squad and not some bizarre other form of execution dreamed up by Chairman Kim Jong Un.   
  69. 2020 Friday: As of 22:00 hours, the current number of confirmed COVID-19 cases around the world stands at 2,790,986; the current number of confirmed deaths worldwide sits at 195,920 but the confirmed recoveries sit at 781,382.  Sadly- thank you, communist China- the United States rapidly is approaching one million confirmed cases as this evening, we find 924,510 Wuhan Virus cases in the U.S.  Currently, we have 52,296 confirmed fatalities but 100,795 confirmed recoveries.   As for our People’s Republic of China ‘amigos,’ these scumbags claim (same every day) 88,423 confirmed cases with the same number of dead- 4,632 and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Everyone understands communists always lie and so they are.  As for the U.S. Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes at 23,775.27, up 260.01 (1.11%); the NASDAQ closes 8,634.52, UP 139.77 (1.65%), and the S & P 500 ends at 2,836.74, UP 38.94 (1.39%).  The U.S. is and will recover and the PRC will pay an exorbitant price for the perfidy they have committed against the world.
  70. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 145,943,305 confirmed cases, +1,138,820, 3,091,553  confirmed deaths, +17,685, and 84,040,856 confirmed recoveries, +820,175.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,185,302 confirmed cases (down from yesterday’s figures), UP 146,041 from yesterday’s reporting, 576,265 confirmed deaths (down from yesterday’s numbers), UP 1,847,[viii] and 119,074,832 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix] 
  71. 2021 Saturday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 262,814 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  72. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,729,952 confirmed cases, 61,361 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,203,913 confirmed cases, 34,812 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,114 confirmed cases, 477 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 395,394 confirmed cases, 5,477 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Oregon, home of the most communists in the entire United States: they have 179,124 confirmed cases, 2,493 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  73. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,974 confirmed cases, 6,350 confirmed deaths, and 829,696 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Denmark, a wonderful place to visit but not to live: 246,643 cases of the virus, 2,472 confirmed deaths and 234,431 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  74. 2021 Saturday D:   Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,043.49, UP 227.59 points (+0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,016.81, UP 198.40 points (+1.44%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,180.17, UP 45.19 points (+1.09%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.04 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,776.70 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.05 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,232.00 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.08%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,855.15 per troy oz, +18.52 (+0.65%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Kazakhstani Tenge, one greenback equals 430.24 and in Lao Kip, a buck equals 9,405.00.[xv]  
  75. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.986 per gallon, $2.796 in Florida, $3.767 in Hawaii, and $3.407 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Michigan: $2.832.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,209,453,921,257 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  76. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has been sharing photos on One America News (and probably other news networks as well) of ILLEGAL ALIENS being removed from holding pens and hotels along the border and dumped into airports in the region for transport to other parts of the country.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is being slammed, rightfully so, seeing as how 30 days have passed and the so-called ‘Border Czar’ has been nowhere near the flipping border.  WTF?   In other perplexing news, ICE ends placing fines on illegal aliens.  WTF about this, too?  
  77. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden News I– White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- not the brightest bulb in the pack to be sure- says that drooling old Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress will likely NOT have many attendees as we are all observing COVID-19 restrictions. Yeah, right.  Sure.  Flipping old Joe is going to be swinging at a lot of balls but connecting with very few of them so we cannot have anyone observing the senile old coot too closely. 
  78. 2021 Saturday H: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– As Democrats continue trying to throw roadblocks in the path of the Maricopa County, Arizona’s recount and election integrity efforts, Steve Bannon asks an incredibly simple question: WHAT ARE THE DEMS AFRAID OF?  That’s it in a nutshell, what the f**k are the Democrats trying to prevent the American people seeing?   Meanwhile President Donald J. Trump calls on Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, to provide not only more support to the ongoing effort to achieve election integrity but also security so that it can proceed without rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth liberal lunatics trying to halt it.  President Trump questions WHY Democrats are so determined to STOP the ongoing efforts to find out what the hell happened in the early morning hours after Election Day 2020 and also says, the ‘results will be startling.’
  79. 2021 Saturday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Indonesia announced today that their missing submarine is presumed lost and the crew dead.  How sad.  This is a horrible tragedy.  Next, Palestinians are behaving like they always do- like a bunch of Untermensch, this time in Jerusalem for the 11th night in a row.  Alas, what is their problem?  Well, since the start of Ramadan, they have been running amok in Jerusalem, causing Israeli Defense Forces to launch a harsh crackdown on the human garbage.  Meanwhile, their brethren across the border began firing rockets into Israel.  Sounds like someone is looking for a major ass-whooping, yet again.   Next, Southeast Asian nations have reached some sort of consensus over the crisis in Myanmar.  Hmmm, what are they going to do about it?  Finally, an avalanche near the Indo-Sino border sees 8 people killed but another 384 rescued.   Elsewhere, at least 27-30 people are dead in a Baghdad COVID-19 hospital blaze (probably set by jihadists being the kind, loving people they are).
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Social Media News–  President Donald J. Trump discussed his removal from Facebook and Twitter and notes that BOTH are extremely boring and that issuing press releases is much more elegant and informative.  Next, Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame presented his third program on the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election today, “Absolute Interference,” which is a mind-blower to see just how deep the hacks by the Chi-Coms were.  Lindell showed so much evidence that we do indeed hope that it ends up before the U.S. Supreme Court where- IF Chief Justice John Roberts does not behave as he normally does- things might change.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: COVID-19 News / Updates– It appears that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for the Chi-Vi will soon be back online, even though continued reports of deaths and intensified menstrual cycles continue to predominate the news cycle.   Next, a new MIT study questions the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci dictates regarding wearing of masks and maintaining social distancing from fellow human beings.   MIT questions whether social distancing works while Republicans demand evidence from the Centers for Disease Control regarding the need for children but especially children under the age of TWO to wear flipping masks.  NO evidence says they should.   
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News I– First, an Oklahoma police officer, Nathan Ronan of the Lawton PD who was at the center of a deadly shooting has been cleared of ALL charges.  Next, the NYPD is searching for a gangbanging POS who drug one of theirs by a speeding vehicle before dumping him off in the streets.   Next, a guy in the Lone Star State was arrested after shooting a police officer in the shoulder.   Moving on, in the era of feeble old Joe Biden yet another gun crime occurs, this one on Bourbon Street in New Orleans in the wee hours of the morning where five people were shot (but none so far have died).   
  83. 2021 Saturday M: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News II– Elsewhere, convicted murderer Derek Chauvin (whom we still believe is going to be cleared of all charges provided he is not shivved between here and there) could face added charges for an arrest back in 2017.  Boy, the radical left hates to let go, like a dog humping one’s pantleg.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice has charged five people for defrauding Medicare of $65 million over the back brace scheme we think everyone has heard at least one sales pitch on the phone at one time or another.  Good.  Send them to prison, those ads were annoying.  Finally, Jeffrey Epstein’s close associate and procurer Ghislaine Maxwell pleads NOT guilty to loads more charges of sex trafficking.
  84. 2021 Saturday N: State News– Former Trump associate Mike Egan is running for the Texas 6th congressional district seat in a special election next month.   Elsewhere, Alabama passes a law that will allow student athletes to profit off their images and likenesses.   Next, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte, Republican, signed a bill that NULLIFIES all restrictions on guns.  However, the Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, Democrat, vetoed a bill that would lower the age for concealed carry firearm permits to 18.  That one is okay unless of course the individual is in law enforcement or the U.S. military.   Meanwhile, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, shared an update with his voters about his remaining eye’s condition.  He hopes to have vision restored and for him to be back on the job.
  85. 2021 Saturday O: Stupid News Of The Day– In crazy news of the day, the fossilized mummy Joe Biden says, ‘MORE troops are heading to Afghanistan even though he claims- we repeat, CLAIMS- U.S. troops are coming home on September 11, 2021.’  Wow.  These people simply do not want to leave the flipping country.  Let the Chi-Coms have ‘em.   Meanwhile, as the Chi-Vi pandemic ebbs and flows, toilet paper prices are beginning to return to normal and supplies are hitting all-time highs.   In other STUPID news, an unnamed member of the Biden regime claims that U.S. sanctions on Russia are having their desired effect because the Russians ‘went home.’  Don’t count on it…next, Portland, Oregon, declare yet another riot after Antifa burns down a Boys & Girls Club.  When are you going to start shooting these scumbags?  A little bit of lead will stop the rioting like that.  BOOM!
  86. 2021 Saturday P: Miscellaneous News I– Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO-LA, says, ‘the GOP infrastructure bill will provide more for less.’  Next, Representative Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district says that Joe Biden’s ‘New Deal’ hurts poor people the most.  Next conservative icon Ari Hoffman is taking over the helm at Seattle’s KVI radio station.   Moving on, George P. Bush is eyeing primarying Texas AG Ken Paxton.  Please- NO MORE BUSHES!  Enough with the Bush Family.   George P. Bush also says, ‘Texas is pushing back hard against the Biden regime’s orders.’  Wow.  Next, Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district says that the Dems have exposed their agenda by trying to make Washington, D.C. into the 51st state.’  Amen.
  87. 2021 Saturday Q: California Lottery Results– First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3554 with a $40 million jackpot on the line: 12, 14, 17, 22, 24, and Mega 13.  Out of 135,535 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but not the Mega for a prize of $43,202.  The winning ticket was sold at the Shell in Carmel, CA 93923.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #840 with a $104 million jackpot up for grabs: 22, 36, 48, 59, 61, and Powerball 22.   Out of 135,535 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but not the Mega for a prize of $43,202.  The winning ticket was sold at the Shell in Carmel, CA 93923.

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of the Electric Prunes within the next 5-10 years.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iv] We should have shot down this POS satellite.

[v] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

2021 Thursday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- a new report hit the news cycle today suggesting that Health and Human Services, an agency headed by Secretary Xavier Becerra, a man who never met an illegal alien he did not want to protect or a baby to abort, is paying travel expenses for (NAMBLA) and other groups to come pick up illegal alien brats and then take them elsewhere in the country. Shady foster care services are making BIG BUCKS right now caring for illegal alien minors.

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

  89. 2021 Thursday J: Crime And Punishment News– Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a pair of bills into law today that protect motorists from ‘protesters.’  Not long after he did that, there was an INSURRECTION in the State House in which, a bunch of BLM supporters stormed the building and had to be tossed out on their butts by security.  Excellent.   Next, the POS Islamist from Syria[xviii], let in on the refugee program under President Barack Hussein Obama who shot up the King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, is being charged with having a high-capacity magazine.  Say it ain’t so!  Next, Columbus, Ohio, following the death of a 16-year-old Ma’ Khia Bryant was shot dead by a police officer yesterday as she was in the act of stabbing another young girl, protests and riots are occurring in the city, especially after troglodyte LeBron “Fecal Matter” James poured gasoline all over the fire yesterday with a threatening tweet against the officer involved in the action.  Look, when you are threatening someone with an 8-eight-inch blade and you are overheard saying, “I’M GOING TO STAB THE F**K OUT OF YOU, BITCH,” was the officer supposed to stand aside and watch the deed done?  Enough with this bulls**t.  Moving on, Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel program that SEXUAL ASSAULTS in New York City this past couple of months are UP by…get this…322-percent.  Gee whiz.  WTF is Mayor Bill “The Blank” Di Blasio doing to halt this horrendous sexual crime wave?  Nothing.  Finally, the POS Bangladeshi that tried to carry out a suicide bombing in the Times Square subway station received a life term in federal prison today.

  92. 2021 Thursday M: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Late last night, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you know of whom we speak) carried out a suicide car-bombing outside a luxury hotel in Quetta, Pakistan.  The resulting explosion killed four and wounded at least 11.  Supposedly, the Chi-Com ambassador was on site, so no one knows for sure whether he was the target, or it was just another day at the office for the jihadists.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is putting forth a bill designed to crack down on People’s Republic of China infiltrating our institutions of higher learning.  Good.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, slams the enfeebled Joe Biden over his crackpot plans for rejoining with the Iranians in the deeply flawed JCPOA.   Moving on, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggests the U.S. could give eventual U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens willing to plant trees.  How about they plant them in YOUR country?).
  93. 2021 Thursday N: Foreign News / Overseas News II– A new report suggests that the Russians are suspected of launching directed energy attacks on U.S. military personnel.  Okay, uh, when claims of Vladimir Putin placing bounties atop the heads of U.S. soldiers led to demands that President Donald J. Trump go to war with the Russkies, how come the very same voices aren’t demanding that Joe Biden go to war?  Speaking of the Russians, it appears they have blinked and have pulled their forces back from the eastern border of Ukraine.  Wow.  Joe scared them.  In other ‘foreign news,’ a team of scientists are urging Congress to release more information on UFOs after one incident comes to light in which, a UFO going along at 120 miles per hour over Puerto Rico suddenly splits in two and heads off in different directions.  Folks, we have a problem on this planet.  What are we going to do about it?  (Note- this incident occurred back in 2013 so why are we just hearing about it now?)  Finally, at the upcoming meeting of House Republicans, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that President Donald J.

  99. 2022 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.110 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.685 in Washington state.[xxvii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Maryland- $4.047.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 24th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Russia: $2.421 per U.S. Gallon.[xxviii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,402,029,192,644 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Arab Emirates the next largest holder of U.S. debt is ALL OTHERS.  These nations holds $215,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  100. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Moscow now says that they are going to conquer all of eastern Ukraine as well as southern Ukraine so they can then focus on intimidating Moldova into submission.   Meanwhile, a new report informs the world that Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites fought off a Russian jamming attack over Ukraine the other day.   Satellite images are showing mass graves surrounding Mariupol in eastern Ukraine holding as many as 9,000 or more corpses.  Whether they are Ukrainian civilians or slain Russians is unclear; however, the defenders within the city continue to put up a defense which is driving the Russians and their mercenaries insane.
  101. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The families of the lost sailors who went down with the Moskva when it was sunk by Ukrainian forces last week are demanding answers from Vladimir Putin and his military regime.  They want to know WHY their sons and daughters went down with the ship in an unnecessary war.   Things are growing much more tense in Russia as the FSB is scooping up critics of the Russo-Ukrainian War such as opposition activist, Vladimir Kara-Murza Jr.  A criminal case has been opened against him and he could soon be staying with Alexei Navalny in the Siberian slammer.   Speculation abounds about Russian President Vladimir Putin as a recent series of photos shows him speaking with his defense minister. His right foot is tapping feverishly, he grips the table with one hand, his face, hands, and neck are bloated, and he looks worse than Adolf Hitler did in 1945.  Regarding Hitler, his personal doctor, Dr. Theodor Morell was injecting the Fuhrer with 75 different drugs per day including methamphetamine so what is Putin’s excuse?  The Joe Biden ‘disease,’ i.e., advance senility?
  102. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 385 days and it’s been 299 days since she arrived on scene to do her job.  What a tragedy.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is $713,581,700.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the two took their oaths to defend the Constitution of the United States and the American people is $42,459,387,443.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since the year began is a shocking 1,139,758.  Next, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is a shockingly low 46,571,415.  We suspect the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is a travesty no sane country can withstand. Next, a Texas National Guard member was swept away attempting to rescue struggling illegals drowning in the Rio Grande River.  The search continues for the unfortunate guardsman.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  103. 2022 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Bowing to pressure, Pope Francis calls off a meeting he had scheduled with a Russian patriarch due to the Russian being an ardent supporter of President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, another Russian, Olympic swimmer Evgeny Rylov has been given a nine-month suspension in international swimming events because the POS attended a pro-Vladimir Putin rally.  Next, Austria turns off the Russian oil spigot.  Meanwhile, the European Union is begging its citizens to voluntarily reduce energy usage so as to slash the dependence on Russian oil.
  104. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News II– British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is no slacker, and he says that ‘next week, the Brits will be reopening their embassy in Kyiv.’  Wow.  Where the hell is Joe Biden?  (Note- Joe is worried more about trannys and their rights than he is in promoting and defending the United States).   Elsewhere, after back-to-attack attacks on U.S. troops, diplomats from Iraq and Iran to meet. However, President Volodymyr Zelensky says the ‘U.S. most definitely will be reopening their embassy very soon.’  Next, after the Ukrainian postal service debuts a new anti-Russian postage stamp online, a cyberattack shuts them down.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

104. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 2022

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

  50. 2002 Sunday: Dictator and thug Hugo Chavez returns to power in Venezuela.  Many people will pay the price for his return.  The people of Venezuela tried to depose this POS, but enough scumbags rallied to his side to save him and put him back in power.
  51. 2003 Monday: It sucks to be a terrorist: in Baghdad, U.S. troops capture a Palestinian POS, Abu Abbas, a man responsible for murdering an American on the cruise ship Achille Lauro, sailing in the Mediterranean when it was commandeered by jihadists.  The scum threw disabled passenger Leon Klinghoffer overboard in his wheelchair.  Brave scumbag.  Hang him.  Elsewhere, near Richmond, California, the headless body of a female and a fetus with the umbilical cord still attached wash up on the shore.  Law enforcement officers test the body for DNA and learn that the remains are those of Laci Peterson and her unborn baby who have been missing from their Modesto, California, home since December 24, 2002.  This would bode ill for her husband and the baby’s father, Scott Peterson.
  52. 2004 Wednesday: In a historic policy shift, President George W. Bush endorsed Israel’s plan to hold on to part of the West Bank in any final peace settlement with the Palestinians.  He also ruled out Palestinian refugees returning to Israel, bringing strong criticism from the scumbag Palestinians.
  53. 2005 Thursday: Near the Palestinian town of Nablus, Israeli troops whack a member of the terrorist group, Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, who was preparing to launch an attack into Israel.  Israeli officials placed blame for the incident squarely atop the shoulders of the Palestinian garbage running the show in Gaza City.  These people are all jihadists and jihadists must be whacked wherever discovered.  Excellent work, Israel!
  54. 2006 Friday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad meeting with Hamas officials at a conference on Palestinian statehood blasts the Israeli government as being a dying, rotten tree, one that will disappear with the first storm.’  Israel is still there, and Ahmadinejad is full of fecal matter.  Elsewhere, Chad severs ties with the Sudan after Islamist rebels from Chad carry out an attack within their own country, killing at least 350 people and wounding countless others.  Chad points the finger of blame directly at Khartoum which remains mum.
  55. 2007 Saturday: Not that it did any good, 200,000 people take to the streets in Ankara, Turkey, protesting against the possible candidacy of want-to-be dictator for life, incumbent Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  The POS is still there in 2020.   
  56. 2008 Monday: Delta Airlines Incorporation and Northwest Airlines Corporation announced they were merging.   Elsewhere, the U.S. is beginning to occupy its brand-spanking new $736 billion embassy in Baghdad, Iraq.  The facility is about the size of the Vatican City and can reportedly withstand any assault by terrorists.  We shall see.   Meanwhile, the World Food Bank announces a plethora of new emergency measures with which to combat the rising costs of food prices.  People in the developing world are running amok in the streets, having food riots, attacking stores and warehouses.  It’s getting ugly out there.
  57. 2009 Tuesday: In a big day for Somali pirates, the scum seize four ships taking 60 hostages.  Elsewhere, North Korea said it was restarting its rogue nuclear program (what else is new?), booting U.N. inspectors and pulling out of disarmament talks in an angry reaction to U.N. Security Councils condemnation of its April 15 rocket launch.
  58. 2010 Wednesday: The Vatican finds itself in the hotseat when a top cardinal within the church links homosexuality with pedophilia in discussions over the recent wave of sex scandals threatening the institution.  You know, if the shoe fits; still, whether the Roman Catholic Church knows it or not, everyone is beginning to get WOKE.  Some things you can say and others you can’t and what the cardinal said is one of the bad ones…in other news, whispers are coming out of the White House that President Barack Hussein Obama is going to debut a new plan with which to send American astronauts to Mars.  Supposedly, this will occur tomorrow.  The funny thing is that NOT long after he became president, he scrapped NASA’s plans for returning astronauts to the moon.  He wanted the money for his bogus social re-engineering programs.
  59. 2011 Thursday: President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy publish an op-ed in a global newspaper- International Herald Tribune– in which the three leaders share their vision on how best to end the Libyan Civil War, one these guys sort of had a hand in starting and now like George W. Bush and his ill-fated Iraq War 2003, once they broke it, they own it.
  60. 2012 Saturday: The U.S., Russia, and China begin talks on Iran’s nuclear program.  Elsewhere, South Korean naval vessels search the Yellow Sea on the lookout for a failed North Korean missile test which went down into the ocean shortly after launch.
  61. 2013 Sunday: In anticipation of Croatia becoming a full-fledged member of the European Union, the nation selects its first MPs through an election.   Elsewhere, following the death of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez (died March 05), Venezuelans go to the polls for a snap presidential election.   Meanwhile, South Korean continues putting out feelers to its counterparts in the North which are rebuffed yet again.  Light ‘em up, civilized world, light those North Koreans up.  
  62. 2014 Monday: According to Brainy History, the Washington Post and The Guardian win the Pulitzer Prize for reporting of surveillance programs by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA); the investigations relied on thousands of documents leaked by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor.  Elsewhere, folks waiting at a bus station outside the Nigerian capital city of Abuja have a horrible day when twin bombings occur.  According to Al Jazeera, at least 71 people are sent to meet their Maker while at least another 120 probably wish they could.  Once again, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.
  63. 2015 Tuesday: President Barack Hussein Obama meets with Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi to discuss the ongoing fight against the Islamic State.  The American president says he will send the nation ‘humanitarian aid’ but in his usual ‘f**k this’ attitude, will not commit to sending the beleaguered nation military supplies.
  64. 2016 Thursday: Palestinians are always causing trouble and today is no different.  In Jerusalem, Israeli law enforcement catch two Palestinian 12-year-old boys who had an assortment of knives concealed within their clothing.  Off they went to the Hoosegow.  Meanwhile, near Hebron, a Palestinian extremist attacks an Israeli soldier with an axe but who is then shot dead for his troubles.  Piss on them.  Elsewhere, the Chinese announce they are going to prosecute 357 of its citizens for the illegal sale of vaccines.  What kind of vaccines? 
  65. 2017 Friday: Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, already serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder, was acquitted in Boston in a 2012 double-homicide that prosecutors claimed was fueled by his anger over a drink spilled on him at a nightclub.  Five days later, Hernandez supposedly hanged himself in his prison cell.   Elsewhere, European vessels plying the waters off of the Libyan coast come upon another floundering load of Sub-Saharan African ‘migrants’ and yank 2,000 of them out of the water.  
  66. 2018 Saturday: Terrorists attack an Egyptian army outpost in the Sinai today killing several soldiers.  At least 12-14 jihadis ran amok, four of them detonating suicide vests as they grappled with the soldiers.  At least 8 Egyptian soldiers lost their lives in the skirmish.  Further north, problems continue along the border between Israel and Gaza.  A visiting delegation of Egyptian leaders encourage the Palestinians to call off their ‘Great March of Return.’  This event witnesses Hamas sending out cannon fodder to engage with the Israeli Defense Forces so people can get killed and Hamas can then point fingers at Israel.  We say, stop giving the Palestinians money.  Period.
  67. 2019 Sunday: Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a woman with numerous problems, finds herself at the center of controversy yet again after comments made at a 9/11 speech come to light in which, she tries to cover up the role of Islam in bringing down the Twin Towers.  President Donald J. Trump hammers the skank while- shock of shocks- Nancy Pelosi rushes to her defense.  Boot both women out of Congress.
  68. 2020 Tuesday: Today, former President Barack Hussein Obama endorsed his former vice president, “Pro-China Joe” Biden for the 2020 presidential nomination of the Democratic Party.  He did so via social media.  Mr. Obama joins the Chinese taskmasters running the Biden campaign in selecting the ‘right man for the job’ should he win in November (which he won’t).  Meanwhile, the Kung Flu- aka COVID-19, aka coronavirus, aka Wuhan Virus, aka Wuhan Flu, aka Wuhan Virus Crisis- continues claiming lives and causing economic destruction wherever it occurs.  Current statistics show a total of 1,968,943 confirmed cases with 123,783 confirmed deaths and 464,135 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have a total (at the time of this update) 598,737 confirmed cases what with 24,770 confirmed deaths and 38,015 confirmed recoveries.  We must thank our Chinese ‘friends’ for giving us the gift that won’t stop giving.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China, thank you.
  69. 2020 Tuesday A: As of this evening, the world has 1,981,239 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus Crisis what with 126,681 confirmed deaths and 486,622 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, 614,416 confirmed cases and 29,897 confirmed deaths and 48,036 confirmed recoveries.  Now, get this, the People’s Republic of China claims to have 84,393 confirmed cases, 3.342 deaths and 78,877 confirmed recoveries.  Amazing is it not?  The U.S. State Department estimates that in truth, at least 2.2 million to 2.5 million fatalities connected to this lab-engineered, diabolical virus and yet, they claim it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announces that he will put a hold on the money the United States gives to the World Health Organization.  About time, Mr. President, about time.  How about putting an American into the place of Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus?  That makes more sense than having a Third World toady for China in the gig.
  70. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 137,847,272 confirmed cases, +1,000,476, 2,965,199  confirmed deaths, +16,103, and 78,548,136 confirmed recoveries, +612,509.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,608,413 confirmed cases, UP 165,799 from yesterday’s reporting, 569,556 confirmed deaths, UP 1,662, and 119,010,784 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  71. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 242,664 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   Dr. Scott Gottlieb takes the ‘Biden administration’ to task for NOT surging vaccines and resources into coronavirus hotspots but to continue doling vaccines out based on population numbers. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,706,728 confirmed cases, 60,507 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,141,686 confirmed cases, 34,164 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,175 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 381,537 confirmed cases, 5,391 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Utah, the home of a bunch of rebellious Mormons who dressed up like Native Americans and attacked settlers on the Oregon Trail: they have 391,177 confirmed cases, 2,161 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii]

  76. 2021 Wednesday F: COVID-19 NEWS– Moderna is eyeing a combination COVID-19/Influenza vaccination for the fall.  (Note- don’t bother- we aren’t going to take it).  Next, U.S. intelligence chief says that spy agencies are unclear as to when the China Virus first underwent transmission.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that ‘if you want to get the American people to buy in on getting the vaccine, government should not lie to them’ (like that imbecile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci).   Elsewhere, IBM uncovers more attacks against China Virus vaccine supply chains.  No surprise there.  In other COVID-19 vaccine news, Denmark has permanently halted the use of AstraZeneca’s vaccine following reports of blood clots showing up in patients in that country.  Next, the NFL says that players and staff MUST get the coronavirus vaccines if they want to play or to work within the National Football League.  We say, “F**k them.”  Finally, GOP lawmakers push back on the ongoing push for COVID-19 passports.  (Note- a poll says that more than 50-percent of Republicans are NOT going to get the vaccines).
  77. 2021 Wednesday G: WASHINGTON, D.C. STATEHOOD– a recent poll says that of all 50 states and Washington, D.C., the latter is viewed as the absolute worst place to live and work.  Speaking of statehood, 22 Republican state attorney-generals are suing the Biden administration saying that statehood for the nation’s capital is unconstitutional which it is.  The nation’s capital was meant to be an independent federal district.  Perhaps they should return the real estate given to the district by the surrounding states back to the donors.  There.  Problem solved.  They can pay taxes to the states.  Ah, well, the House Oversight Committee is going to vote on a bill- H.R. 51- authorizing D.C. statehood later in the week.  Still, Democrats are facing cries of “HYPOCRISY” over the court-packing scheme seeing as how they were against it before they were for it. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday H: JOE BIDEN NEWS I– The ‘Biden administration’ is pushing to protect the nation’s power grid as hacking efforts intensify.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she of the pendulous breasts that droop down past her waistline, has invited bewildered old Joe Biden to address a joint session of Congress on April 28.  This we got to see!   Meanwhile, critics lambasting Joe Biden’s SCOTUS commission on packing the court could favor adding additional left-wing justices to an already inept court thanks to the commission being one-sided.  (Note- we suspected this from the start).  Next, Joe Biden says that ALL U.S. troops will be out of Afghanistan, not by May 1, 2021, as President Donald J. Trump planned but on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001: September 11, 2021.[xv]  However, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns is pushing back on this announcement.[xvi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: CRIME AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE NEWS– The judge in the Derek Chauvin murder trial today refused a motion to dismiss the case.  Meanwhile, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, Police Officer Kim Potter was arrested today and charged with second degree manslaughter in the accidental shooting death of thug Duante Wright.  Police in the city also had to put barricades around her family’s home seeing as how rioting has been ongoing there now for three days.  Last night, law enforcement arrested another 60 people rioting and running amok in the streets.  We say, “Shoot them and re-establish law and order in your city.”   In other criminal justice news, Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff died in federal prison at age 83.  In doing so, he was able to beat serving his 150-year prison sentence.  C’ est la vie.  Finally, as the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin continues, a defense expert testifies that Mr. Floyd did not die from Officer Chauvin’s actions but from a heart rhythm problem.  (Interesting note- a report says that NYPD officers stood by as four MS-13 gangbangers loaded a dead body into the trunk of their vehicle).
  80. 2021 Wednesday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, has put forth a Trump-like bill, the “Red Tape Reduction Act,” a bill that would seek to cut regulations and rules.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Julia Letlow, R-LA 5th congressional district, put her hand on the Holy Bible today and took the oath of office as the newest member of the U.S. House of Representatives.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is continuing with Florida’s lawsuit against the Joe Biden regime over its crazy Immigrations and Customs Enforcement policies.  Illegal aliens MUST GO!  Speaking of the border, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is supposed to visit Mexico and Guatemala within the next ‘several weeks.’  Uh, okay, we have a CATASTROPHE on our southern border there, phony VP.  Finally, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer plans to move forward with the Biden administration’s infrastructure bill early next week, the one that will cost more than $2 trillion, money mostly borrowed from communist China.  (Note- Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says that “Cryin’ Chuck” is not reaching out to Republican lawmakers for their input.  Say what?)
  81. 2021 Wednesday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Capitol Hill officer who shot and killed 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt during the January 06, 2021, FALSE FLAG operation, aka the infamous Capitol Hill Riots- of that ill-fated day will face NO charges whatsoever even though film makes it clear there was no reason for such an incident to have occurred.  Good to have friends in high places, folks.  Next, major U.S. corporations are all banding together to thwart the new voting laws seeking to infuse more honesty and openness into the laws so that what happened on November 03, 2020, does not occur again; namely, stealing a presidential election and giving it to a horrible candidate, creepy old Joe Biden.  Elsewhere, several GOP senators are seeking to strip Major League Baseball of its anti-trust protections.  Kick MLB to the curb.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– The Biden administration is going to honor the terms of the deal made by President Donald J. Trump and the United Arab Emirates.  The sale of advanced U.S. warplanes will proceed.   Next, the U.S. Senate votes 53-45 to confirm Gary Gensler as the next head of Securities and Exchange Commission.  Meanwhile, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that Joe Biden is swiftly moving illegal aliens apprehended along the southern border and is moving them into the heartland of the country.  There is NO vetting, NO testing for diseases, NO background checks for criminal activity, and thus Old Joe is fueling the demise for the country at a later date.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV– The Democrats are preparing to release a new plan with which to expand the U.S. Supreme Court from nine seats to 13.  This is indeed ‘packing the courts,’ something Joe Biden swore upon the head of Satan (just kidding) he would NEVER do.  Congressman Ted Budd, R-NC 13th congressional district, says a constitutional amendment is required with which to fix the number of justices at nine.  Meanwhile, Congressman Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Major League Baseball is punishing the people it claims to be helping.’  Next, the Dems have another plan, one into which they will pour another $50 billion to eradicate student loan debt.  This will wipe out the debt for 36 million of our fellow Americans.  Good.  Elsewhere, former President George W. Bush laments that he did not pass comprehensive immigration reform when HE was president.  How about enforcing the laws? 
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– “Bachelor” star Colton Underwood comes as gay.  Big whoop.  Next, Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl are working on an anthem for the COVID-19 era.  Meanwhile, Parler says that Amazon is throwing mud at them by claiming they are doing everything they can to cover up ownership.   Speaking of Amazon, they are pledging to promote more women and blacks.  Elsewhere, the state of Arizona is revamping sex-ed rules in the wake of all the LGBTQIA+ bulls**t being forced down the throats of American students.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II–  We learn that $174 billion of the infrastructure bill proposed by President Joe Biden is going to the Chinese.  We need them to mine and manufacture rare earth minerals so we can drive electric cars.  Good going, Joe.  Next, Stephen Miller says that “America First Legal” is aiding the states in suing the Biden administration.  Moving on, a new department of the U.S. Treasury will oversee COVID-19 relief.  Boy, talk about a major slush fund for the Left!   Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, tells Newsmax that IF Trump runs in 2024, he will be the nominee.   Next, Joe Biden- never one to pander- is appointing a liaison to the American Asian-Pacific Islanders community seeing as how black Democrats are attacking Asian Democrats.  Someone has to help make nice.  Erika Moritsugu will get the gig.  Finally, experts say (and they are right) that California is not prepared for another catastrophic fire season.  True, absolutely true, thanks to liberal mismanagement and inattention.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– the United States and Germany are warning Russia to pull back from Ukraine’s borders.  The Biden administration plans to slap new sanctions atop Vladimir Putin and the Russian government.  Let’s see what that does.  Meanwhile, experts say that thanks to U.S. stupidity, we have built the Chi-Com military for them via the lopsided trade disparities as well as permitting to steal everything they can get their thieving hands on.  Wow.
  87. 2021 Wednesday Q: LOTTERY RESULTS–  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3551: 07, 10, 20, 28, 33, and Mega 15.  Out of 114,696 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers BUT NO Mega for a prize of $10,170 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Foremost Liquor, South Pasadena, CA 91030 (2) United Oil, Ontario, CA 91761 (3) Cig Zone, Indio, CA 92201 and (4) Bonfare Market, San Jose, CA 95135.   Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #837: 13, 30, 33, 45, 61, and Power 14.  Out of 46,599 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball $5,142 apiece.

  89. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 565,609 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 200,944 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 449 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  90. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,149,794 confirmed cases, 89,675 confirmed deaths, and 8,897,475 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,919,467 confirmed cases, 73,656 confirmed deaths, and 5,798,702 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 243,299 confirmed cases, 1,390 confirmed deaths, and 237,218 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,471,754 confirmed cases, 12,589 confirmed deaths, and 1,433,781 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., North Dakota: they have 240,109 confirmed cases, 2,251 confirmed deaths, and 237,715 confirmed recoveries.[xix]

The price of RHODIUM is $19,200.00 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, -50,000.00 (-4.31%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,299.00 per USD/T, +63.00 (+1.95%). The price of ZINC is $4,483.00 per USD/T., +21.50 (+0.48%).   The price of COCOA is $2,583.00 per USD/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of COFFEE is $223.60 per USD/T, -1.45 (-0.64%).  The price of LUMBER is $889.00 USD 1,000 board feet +5.30 (+0.60%).[xxii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 19.96, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 80.12 of theirs.    In Kyrgyzstani Som, one greenback equals 84.76 and in Lao Kip, a buck equals 11,835.90 and in Latvian Lats, one dollar equals 0.60 of theirs.[xxiii]       
  93. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.719 per gallon, $4.016 in Florida, $5.238 in Hawaii, and $4.654 in Washington state.[xxiv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Iowa- $3.796.  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 16th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Yemen: $2.137 per U.S. Gallon.[xxv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,384,833,492,283 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvi]  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 Netherlands the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland.  This nation holds $51,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).  
  94. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Governor Greg Abbott is hammering out agreements with various Mexican state governors to stop the flow of the Biden-Harris illegals into the Lone Star State.  If the Mexican governors fail to provide security along their shared borders, every single vehicle crossing the border heading north will be stopped and inspected.  Billions of dollars of revenues will be lost which hopefully will propel the governors to doing the right thing.  IF the Biden-Harris regime won’t do the job, Texas will.  Hopefully, Arizona and New Mexico will follow suit leaving California to bear the brunt of illegal aliens alone. Okay, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is a shocking $662,179,656.  The cost of caring for them since these two losers took charge is $42,408,255,399.  Wow.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since January 01, 2022, is in our estimation 1,057,658.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is 46,479,144. We believe the number of illegals is closer to 85-to-100 million which is a detestable number.  Round ‘em up, imprison them, and then deport them after they work off their transgressions. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  95. 2022 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Finland and Sweden are seeking fast-track membership in NATO which has led the tottering Putin regime in Russia to threaten a build-up of its nuclear forces if the two neutral nations become the newest members of NATO.  In more unwelcome news for Russia, however, Ukraine sank Russia’s Black Sea flagship- the Moskva– with a land-to-sea missile.  Belching smoke and flames, the vessel went to the bottom with sailors leaping into the sea.  In an attempt to cover up the disaster, Moscow claimed sailors smoking cigarettes somehow sank the ship- which, if true- is worse than the ship being sunk via a missile.  What can go wrong for the Putin regime next?  We suspect that the military and intelligence leadership is NOT going to permit much more of these disasters to continue.  President Putin had better keep his back to the wall at all times; otherwise, someone is going to come up behind him and cap him.  It’s what Russians do.  (Note- this is so reminiscent of the Winter War of 1939- the Finns beat the living crap out of the Russians).
  96. 2022 Thursday H: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $53.13 (2) AstraZeneca: $69.05 (3) Novavax: $58.55 (4) Merck & Company: $86.91 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.89  (6) BioNTech: $175.29 (7) Moderna: $165.49.

  101. 2022 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I- Information continues to arise linking the FBI not only to the events of January 06, 2021, but to the ‘plot’ to kidnap one of America’s absolute worst governors, Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI.  Last week, virtually everyone charged by the feds was either acquitted or had a mistrial which blows the government’s case out of the water.  Julie Kelly reports that regarding January 06, 2021, i.e., the INSURRECTION, there were more than 1,000 FBI agents, informants, and/or stooges in the crowd inciting the ensuing mayhem.  This is disturbing and the FBI must undergo a massive purification to remove the leftist losers causing inner rot within the once proud organization.  Our advice to anyone faced with an interview with the FBI: ask for a lawyer and then go silent.  Period.   Remember: the few remaining good apples are tainted by the multitudes of bad ones.
  102. 2022 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II- Apparently, the Biden White House is struggling with how much information to provide the Ukrainians.   Next, the Biden White House indicts a Russian legislator and two aides operating in the U.S. whom they claim are running an anti-Ukrainian propaganda site in the U.S.  Next, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns says, ‘don’t count out Russia using nukes in Ukraine.’  Good to know.   Next, the Biden regime is preparing a crackdown on those seeking to evade regime-imposed sanctions on Russia.  Good to know, too.
  103. 2022 Thursday M: Political News I- A new poll says that a large majority of Americans do not believe gun control will stop mass shootings.   Next, BIG DEMOCRAT DONOR from Los Angeles, California, the disgusting Ed Buck- longtime close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Obamas– has received 30 years for his crack-induced overdose deaths of young black men he enticed into his home to have sex with him.  Good riddance to a POS.   Another close friend of the Clintons- attorney Michael Sussman- watched his request for his Russia-collusion scam case to be dropped- swatted aside.  The Durham investigation is going to go after this scumbag on the ladder up to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  104. 2022 Thursday N: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News- Pro-Death proponents in Florida are going insane what with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis signing into law a bill banning ALL abortions after 15 weeks.  Whatever happened to birth control, i.e., ‘the pill?’  It used to be everyone sought to prevent pregnancy rather than to murder the outcome of a pregnancy.  Something is wrong in a country when it murders its unborn and seeks to replace the mass genocide of its young people with illegal aliens.  (Note- I am so glad I now live abroad.  Israel values ALL life, not just those that are ‘convenient’).
  105. 2022 Thursday O: Big Tech News- Elon Musk has put up a $43 billion bid with which to buy Twitter and put it back on the path towards FREE SPEECH.  Of course, the left in America and around the world is going bonkers.  Who knows?  Maybe Elon will launch a hostile takeover of Meta-Facebook.  Now that would be something.  Time to round up all these tech moguls and send them to Devil’s Island for all the harm they’ve caused the world.
  106. 2022 Thursday P: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.

  56. 2017 Thursday: Bowing to public pressure from liberals and with threats of boycott by most major sports, North Carolina repeals its ‘controversial’ bathroom bill that restricted public bathrooms to specific genders- like it’s always been.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, a witness testifying before Congress says that ‘Vladimir Putin hired 1,000 people to create anti-Hillary Clinton news during the 2016 Presidential Election.’
  57. 2018 Friday: On this date, Palestinians go crazy as they commence their “Great March of Return,” the beginning of six long weeks of nonstop protests in which they demand- once again- the ‘right of return’ for ALL Palestinians and their descendants who walked away from the new state of Israel in 1948.  For their troubles, the first day’s casualty total (you knew this was coming) was 19 dead Palestinians and 1,416 wounded.  What a bunch of losers.
  58. 2019 Saturday: On today’s date, Slovakia elects its first female head of state, Zuzana Caputova.  Congratulations!   Meanwhile, Pope Francis arrives in Rabat, Morocco, his first ever pontifical visit to the Maghreb region of North Africa.  The pope and King Mohammed VI call for the protection of Jerusalem’s holy sites as they belong to multitudes of people and to the three primary monotheistic religions.  We agree.   Meanwhile, President Donald J.

  59. 2020 Monday: The Wuhan Virus continues causing problems around the planet as cases near 800,000 and deaths approach 39,000.  China continues claiming they are NOT responsible for this evil they have foisted upon the world, and many believe they colluded with the Democratic Party to launch yet another attempt to remove from office or take down altogether President Donald J. Trump.  Not going to happen, folks.   In New York City, the U.S. hospital ship Comfort arrives in New York City to care for patients that Mayor Bill Di Blasio will never send to it.  As for the Summer 2020 Olympics, postponed a week prior to later in the year are now postponed to June 23, 2021.
  60. 2021 Tuesday: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I– in the first outrageous news story of the day, a new report says that 2.64 million illegal aliens are receiving COVID-19 relief checks which is BULLS**T.  In the second outrageous tidbit of news today regarding the swamping of the border with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, we learn today that in San Diego County[ix], California, where our illustrious colleague, Chef Pedro Muñoz resides (and he confirms this), members of the California Teachers Association is visiting illegal alien holding pens where the river-swimming brats are being warehoused to instruct them while it’s still not flipping safe for American kids to attend classes in person more than 5-8 hours per week.   What else do we need to hear to know that the ruling class DETESTS the people they were elected to help?[x] 
  61. 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– In Texas, the Border Patrol continues reporting that they are arresting hundreds of known illegal alien criminals, thugs, rapists, and narcoterrorists.  We also hear that Russians and Iranians are slipping into the country.  These people should all be shot on sight, especially the latter.  Next, we hear that the nation’s glorious NEW BORDER CZAR, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has no plans on visiting the southern border.   Elsewhere, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district warns the ‘Biden administration’ to stop dumping illegal aliens in the Copper State.  Enough is flipping enough already there Joe Biden.    Meanwhile, Congressman Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district held a round-table discussion with members of his community as to how best they can protect their communities from being overrun with illegal aliens.[xi]  Finally, Lara Trump is hammering the Democrats over their hypocrisy on the border.
  62. 2021 Tuesday B: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district is demanding to know from the U.S. Department of Justice as to whether any prosecutions are going to fall atop the Antifa scum and their reign of terror in Portland, Oregon.  Crickets.   Next, former Congressman Ron Paul, R-TX, says ‘Joe Biden’s gun control policies are going to do nothing to help kids.’  Next, Joe Biden’s new chief of diversity and inclusion at U.S. Southern Command Richard Torres Estrada has had his reign cut short.  Due to a bunch of hateful, mean tweets such as comparing President Donald J. Trump with Adolf Hitler, he is being reassigned elsewhere.  Oh, boohoo for you.  LOL.  Moving on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki was stumped by a reporter’s question at the daily briefing: “Can you explain WHY Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris fly all over the place- unessential travel- when Americans cannot do the same?  Psaki had no answer (but generally, she seldom does.  Talk about an overrated individual).  Finally, ‘Pandering Joe’ Biden has announced some court picks among them the first Muslim jurist at the federal level.  Keep on pandering, Joe.  Can’t wait to see who the pro-jihadi is…
  63. 2021 Tuesday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Senator Pat Toomey, R-PA, is putting a Federal Reserve Bank branch on notice to stop overstepping its boundaries meaning stop pushing the liberal WOKE agenda.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump continues blasting Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci as without him, Operation Warp Speed would never have occurred.  The undynamic duo continue taking credit for what the 45th president did for the American people (for those who want to get the shots which we don’t).  Elsewhere, a Jackson County, Michigan, judge drops ‘terrorism charges’ against three patriotic Americans charged with the attempted kidnapping of Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI.  According to the judge, there has to be evidence of ‘committing terrorist acts’ which there aren’t.  They will still face trial on other crimes.   Finally, our esteemed Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has ordered the Department of Justice to begin investigations into ALL (the white) HATE CRIMES afflicting our nation.  Whoa.
  64. 2021 Tuesday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– as a 10th accuser represented by famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred blasts the corrupt, deviant New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, the cringing POS continues to claim that ‘grabbing and groping women is a cultural norm,’ that the ‘Gropin’ Love Gov’ meant nothing wrong by his actions.[xii]  He is sorry if ‘he offended anyone.’  Regarding another deviate, Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer Ghislaine Maxwell, she finds herself facing added charges, charges of corrupting underage 14-year-old girls.  You in trouble there, chickee.   Elsewhere- and we don’t understand this- Nike- the maker of Lil NAS X’s satanic tennis shoes is suing the rapper to remove the ‘human blood component’ in the shoes.  YOU make the shoes, stop making the crap and throw them on the bonfire.  Enough with satanic bulls*** already.  In other news, Dr. Nicholas Meriwether, Ph.D. of Ohio’s Shawnee State University has won a court case on appeal over his refusal to use tranny-friendly gender terms.  Good.  Tell the trannys- aka chicks with dicks- to shut up and grow up.
  65. 2021 Tuesday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– the World Health Organization’s boss Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- in the hip pocket of Comrade Xi Jinping- slams his own COVID-19 report and demands a further investigation into whether or not there was a leak of the Chi-Vi at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  This is strange.  Former S.C. governor and former U.N. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley says the ‘WHO COVID-19 report is nothing more than Chi-Com propaganda.’   In other heartwarming news (LOL), Google Maps will now direct its users (no longer us) to ‘eco-friendly routes.’  Are you going to direct El Jefe Climate Czar John F. Kerry to ‘eco-friendly routes?’  That will be the day.  Next, the Freedom Caucus is split on how to combat the “Chi-Com Joe” Biden agenda.  Folks, you do exactly what the Democrats do: court-shop and get one injunction after another slapped on every crap-ass issue the Biden Gang tries to stuff down our throats.
  66. 2021 Tuesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Mt. Rushmore is shut down and 400 households in the area are evacuated as out-of-control wildfires continue to rage.  Elsewhere, the Derek Chauvin murder trial continues.  The teen who shot the video of George Floyd’s death says that Mr. Floyd begged for his life.  Famed legal trial attorney and scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says, ‘thank God for cellphone cameras at least in this case.’  What we are curious of is the story we first heard last year shortly after the murder of Mr. Floyd was the connection between then-Officer Chauvin and Mr. Floyd who both worked security at a local nightclub, the El Nuevo Rodeo.[xiii]  When the story first hit, it opened a door that might show there was a personal issue between the two men that Officer Chauvin then acted upon which would possibly up the charges to first-degree murder but then…that case visited.   Meanwhile, leftist do what leftists do and following the new Georgia Elections Law, democratic-socialists are demanding that Major League Baseball and Professional Golf Association BOYCOTT the Peach State as well a third suit challenging the law was filed today.  My, my, my.  Finally, Philadelphia cops are searching for a POS shooter who shot and killed one person in a shopping mall.  Sounds rather personal.
  67. 2021 Tuesday G: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,788,017 confirmed cases, +30,892, 2,794,721  confirmed deaths, +6,509, and 72,501,170 confirmed recoveries, +244,446.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,549,435 confirmed cases, up 230,660 from yesterday’s reporting, 555,577 confirmed deaths, UP 5,714, and 118,013,462 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiv]

  71. 2021 Tuesday K: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.896 per gallon, $2.867 in Florida, $3.660 in Hawaii, and $3.325 in Washington state.[xx]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,112,715,077,810 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  72. 2021 Tuesday L: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III– Former CBP head Mark Morgan says that more than 30,000 illegal aliens have been released into the United States on their own recognizance since January by the Biden administration.   In Texas, a facility designed to hold 250 illegal aliens is now holding more than 4,000 thanks to the fraudulent Biden-Harris administration.   Photos continue coming out via clandestine sources showing the cruel and inhumane treatment the illegals have brought upon themselves.  Repeatedly raped, beaten, traumatized, and molested on the journey here, they suffer more rape and enslavement once they manage to escape illegal holding pens.  The cartels keep them in bondage here.  People, everyone arm up while we still have the opportunity.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, is seeking information on the $87.9 million contract the federal government has made with hoteliers in the country so they can send excess illegal aliens to hotels.   What the f*** is going on?  Why do the Democratic-Socialists hate the American people as much as they do?   Finally, Sean Spicer asks WHY BORDER CZAR “Kooky Kamala” Harris HAS no border-specific meetings on her miniscule agenda?  Why?

[i] We promoted the music of the Moody Blues and of the band’s members beginning on Monday, 23-October-2017 through Sunday, 11-February-2018.  We definitely hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ii] We began promoting the music of Love, the 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.  This group was among the best of the 1960s.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Yardbirds- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds, themselves, 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.

[iv] 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.

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

[vi] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[vii] We are not clear as to when- or ever- we will begin doing the music of the Ramones but we sure as heck we do sometime over the next 25 years.

[viii] We began promoting the music of this legendary American rock band- the Young Rascals- beginning on Sunday, 08-December-2013 through Saturday, 21-December-2013.  This band is one everyone who loves rock music must look into and enjoy.

[ix] In San Diego County, health authorities announced that dozens and dozens of fence-jumping illegal alien girls are all testing positive for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Not good which is why we encourage the sowing of minefields along the southern border replete with antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat obstacles as well as seeding the Rio Grande River with alligator pups, laying in foo gas pits, electrifying the fence where possible, and doing whatever else must be done to stop the horde flooding into our country.  At some point, when the administration realizes they have F***ED UP in a major way, like the Romans, we will have to wage war on the illegal aliens within our country of cease to exist.  PATRIOTS MUST HEAD TO THE BORDER TO STOP THE TIDAL WAVE OF THIRD WORLD FLOTSAM AND JETSAM…

[x] IF you ever sought to know how violent events such as the French Revolution, the Bolshevik Revolution, or the Spanish Revolution occurred- or the ensuing civil wars that followed the last two- this is a perfect example.  YOU spit in the faces of the people long enough, do not be surprised when they drag out the LEADERS, put them up against the wall and begin shooting them or sending them to the gallows or to the guillotine.  An inevitable flashpoint is coming and anyone who thinks that it’s not coming sadly is crazy.  The citizens of Paris had had enough and stormed the Bastille, the Russian soldier demoralized that his commanders frittered their lives away succumbed to the toxic siren’s song of Marxism, while in Spain, wealthy aristocratic landowners and an unsympathetic church drove the masses to go berserk.  In the inevitable after in Spain, it required a Fascist to save the country, El Caudillo Francisco Franco while in France, it required its own fascist leader, Napoleon Bonaparte.  Who will lead the American people against the communist thugs pissing all over us?

[xi] We would like to suggest to Blue Dog border Democrats such as Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, IF you want to stop the border from disappearing, it’s time you folks either threaten Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi with becoming Republicans or that you will vote with the GOP.  Let her make all the threats she wants, at some point, you guys must shake this old bag’s control of all things Democratic Party.

[xii] The 10th accuser is a woman of Italian ancestry and she says, ‘kissing and hugging people is Italian but ONLY FOR FAMILY and the Gropin’ Gov is NOT FAMILY.  We hope to see the Lov Gov wearing an orange jumpsuit soon.  Maybe even his brother, too.

  66. 2011 Friday: A magnitude-9.0 earthquake and resulting tsunami struck Japan’s northeastern coast, killing nearly 20,000 people, and severely damaging the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power station.
  67. 2012 Sunday: This year, the People’s Republic of China will increase its defense spending by 11.2 per cent.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin wins the Russian presidential election amid charges of voter fraud—not Vladimir!  Note—President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton do everything in their power to have his opposition win the office but fail dismally in the attempt.  This leads to Vladimir Putin outing the emails of John Podesta in the 2016 Presidential Election, which leads to Donald J. Trump becoming the nation’s 45th president.
  68. 2013 Monday: In Rome, Italy, more than 100 Catholic cardinals convene to pick the next pope who would ultimately become Pope Benedict XVI.
  69. 2014 Tuesday: President Obama sends his 2015 budget to Congress, announcing that it is a “roadmap for creating jobs with good wages and expanding opportunity for all Americans[vi].”
  70. 2015 Wednesday: According to Brainy History, scientists uncover a 2.8-million-year-old jawbone of a primitive human; the find suggests that humans may have evolved from hominins, or humanlike primates, about 400,000 years earlier than previously thought.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice seeks to remake the Ferguson, Missouri, police department over what it calls, “systemic racism” following the Michael Brown shooting.
  71. 2016 Friday: After much careful consideration, GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson announces he is leaving the race.
  72. 2017 Saturday: At age 90, Dr. Thomas Starzl, the American surgeon who performed the first successful liver transplant, died.   Meanwhile, in a move that draws derision from the ‘Yes Mob’ Fake News Media, President Donald J. Trump alleges that during the 2016 Presidential campaign, President Barack Hussein Obama had Trump Tower in New York wiretapped.  Later, this turned out to be true.  The Obama administration wiretapped loads of people connected to the Trump campaign.
  73. 2018 Sunday: To much anger around the world, in Salisbury, UK, former Russian intelligence agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulla suffer poisoning by a poison known to exist only in Russia, thereby showing the tie between the two and Vladimir Putin.   Elsewhere, FAKE NEWS reports that President Trump in a speech to GOP donors at Mar-a-Lago says that the 45th president congratulated communist Chinese President Xi Jinping on him ‘eliminating term limits,’ reporting that Mr. Trump wants to do the same thing as president of the United States.  Oh, really now…
  74. 2019 Monday: Crybaby Democrats announce yet another wide-ranging investigation into ‘corruption’ surrounding President Donald J. Trump.  What a bunch of sniveling ankle-biters.  Meanwhile, much to the horror of liberals and communist Cubans alike, the Trump administration announces it will permit U.S. citizens to the Com-Cubes for redress for property that Havana stole from them during the Revolution. 
  75. 2020 Wednesday: After the drubbing dished out by Joe Biden the previous day on Super Tuesday 2020, the midget Mike Bloomberg announces he is dropping out of the presidential race and will support former Vice President Biden.  Despite spending more than $600 million to BUY the nomination, he bows out of the race with only 53 delegates and ONE win, in American Samoa.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden won Alabama, Arkansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia (566 delegates total) while the old commie, Bernie Sanders won California, Colorado, Utah, and Vermont (501 delegates total).  Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren won 61 total delegates from the start of the contest and could not even carry her home state.  She is a loser and should bow out of the race like Bloomberg did.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Com Virus continues to spread…
  76. 2020 Wednesday A: In Detroit, Michigan, member of the Motown act, the Supremes- Barbara Martin (1960-1962)- dies at age 76.
  77. 2021 Thursday: DAY 44 of the Biden Regime- what the heck is “Senile Joe” and his Chi-Com puppeteers up to today?  Stick around and uncover whatever plot they are trying to foist onto the American people.  You know it can’t be any good…House Democrats fled last night after voting on their bogus Marxist bills, claiming today would be a day when WHITE SUPREMACISTS LED BY DONALD TRUMP WERE GOING TO STORM THE CAPITOL.  Meanwhile, the Senate remains in Washington, D.C., doing its thing.  The Democrats are SO FULL OF FECAL MATTER…UPDATE on this story: NO WHITE SUPREMACISTS STORMED THE CAPITOL TODAY!
  78. 2021 Thursday A: In the aftermath of the passage of the “George Floyd Justice in Policing Act,” the one authored by Democratic-Communist lawmaker Karen Bass of California, the GOP is pointing out the fact that the law goes too far in neutering law enforcement by stripping officers of qualified immunity and slashing federal funding to police departments across the nation among other things.  Here is OUR opinion: IF YOU WANT TO SEE A RISE IN VIGILANTISM, STAR CHAMBERS, AND LAW ENFORCEMENT DOING WHAT LAW ENFORCEMENT MUST IN THE SHADOWS, THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO ENGINEER THIS.  We expect that local citizens and law enforcement officers will work together undercover eliminating threats to local communities.  It is what it is…likewise, American citizens will do what they must to protect our border. 
  79. 2021 Thursday B: In other Joe Biden news, we learn today from a leaked classified report that the Biden administration is incarcerating illegal alien minors longer than the law permits.  Where is all the outrage?   Even worse, the Biden administration FORBIDS ALL PRESS from visiting the illegal alien holding pens.  Porque?  Add to that the fact that the Dems are NOT enforcing any Chinese Virus restrictions on the tidal wave of illegal aliens crossing the border should tell everyone that the Chi-Vi is little more than a political scam. 
  80. 2021 Thursday C: In other ‘Joe Biden’ news, he is now the first president in nearly a century NOT to hold any solo press conferences within 5-7 weeks of assuming office.  Joe Biden has done NOT a single press conference on his own.  This should confirm to everyone that senile Joe is a vegetable, that we have a vegetable for a commander-in-chief.  Wow.  Next- in other Joe Biden news, his pick for Pentagon policy adviser, an Obama-Biden retread, a member of the “C” team- Colin Kahl- said in a 2019 interview that the “GOP is the party of ethnic cleansing.”  Wow.  Joe sure knows how to pick them.
  81. 2021 Thursday C: Meanwhile leaked reports from the FBI go against what ‘esteemed Director’ Christopher Wray said during his testimony this week that there was NO armed insurrection at the nation’s capital on January 6, 2021, which is yet another rebuttal of Democratic-Socialist claims.  Alas, the riots predicted to occur today, the one that caused House Democratic-Socialists to flee to safe zones across the country have so far not occurred.  What a load of political theater crap.
  82. 2021 Thursday D:  Tennessee law enforcement officials report the results from a months’ long investigation into missing children within the borders of their state what with the successful recovery of at least 150 children from a total of around 239.  God bless you.  We must fund law enforcement.   In other ‘law enforcement’ news, the father of Michael Brown is demanding $20 million from the racist Black Lives Matter group who came to prominence burning down Ferguson, Missouri, years ago after the ignorant kid assaulted a police officer and got himself shot.  We don’t think pop is going to receive a dime.  Like Cindy Sheehan, he has NO more value to the Marxist group.
  83. 2021 Thursday E: The Democratic-Socialist-controlled U.S. Senate is holding the passage of the $1.9 trillion Chinese Virus ‘relief bill’ up as they seek ways to lighten the cost of Biden’s PORKULUS.  Billions of dollars of the previous ‘relief bill’ are still sitting unused so what the f**k?  In other U.S. Senate news, Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, says ‘the real victims of the Chi-Com Bat Virus are children, children being isolated in their homes due to the oppressive lockdowns and restrictions in many parts of the country.’  Let’s lift them NOW!  Speaking of lockdowns and restriction, Ohioans are asking WHY Governor Mike DeWine, RINO, won’t lift the restrictions like Texas and Mississippi are?  Vote the bum out of office!  Next, Republican senators have authored a bill for term limits on all federal officeholders.  Come on, Chuck, hold some hearings on that one…
  84. 2021 Thursday F: The Customs and Border Patrol announces that the illegals crammed into the ‘clown car-like SUV’ that collided with a semi-tractor-and-trailer eight miles north of Calexico managed to come through a large gap cut into the border wall and were speeding north when the dumbasses collided with the truck killing at least 15 of the 27 illegal aliens stuffed inside the vehicle.  Did the Biden administration cut the hole in the fence?  We await further information.   Note- this is WHY we need vehicle traps, anti-personnel trenches, foo gas pits, and minefields.  It’s an invasion, folks, an invasion.
  85. 2021 Thursday G: Famed Tiger King- Joe Exotic- has hired new attorneys so he can take another crack at having his sentence for attempted murder overturned.  We wish him luck.  Meanwhile, as the Cancel Culture (NOTE- the AICPENDBLOG.COM cancels the cancel culture) continues taking names and numbers, Dr. Seuss- recently ‘canceled’- sees his books rise to all-time high sales as the demand for them skyrockets.  A full set of around 58 Dr. Seuss books- including the banned ones- sells for a cool $999.99 at Amazon.com.   Anything Cancel Culture cancels typically increases in value.
  86. 2021 Thursday H: Former Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams slams the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci on his two-shot COVID-19 plan.  Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci now says thing ‘might not get back to normal March 2022.’  Fascinating how the goalposts continue moving with this schmeckel.   Elsewhere, numerous Catholic bishops are now blasting the Johnson & Johnson Chi-Com Virus vaccine as ‘morally compromised’ seeing as how cells culled from abortions are involved in both the manufacturing and testing of the anti-Chi-Com Wuhan Virus.  We would not take this s**t.  In other COVID-19 bat and pangolin news, a report suggests that locales in which a high proportion of the population is obese (which does not require much to receive a declaration as such), deaths are ten-times higher.   Finally, after Joe Biden labeled Texas and Mississippi as being ‘Neanderthals’ for throwing their societies open, both Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Missouri Senator Josh Hawley return fire and label senile Old Joe as the ‘Neanderthal’ for not knowing what the f**k he’s even doing.  Joe- we have your Neanderthal swinging.
  87. 2021 Thursday I: GOP lawmakers continue speaking out against H.R. 1, the so-called “For the People Act” which is really the “Democrats in Perpetual Power Act,” because it’s nothing to do with voting rights but about circumventing voting rights as numerous states did during the November 2020 Elections.  Representative Scott DesJarlais, Tennessee’s 4th congressional district, says that the ‘Democrats have changed the rules of the game to win elections.’  Likewise, Representative Jim Jordan, R-OH, says the Democrats are ‘codifying election fraud’ via H.R. 1.  Speaking of the 2020 Elections and the upcoming 2024 Presidential Election, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp now says he will support President Donald J. Trump?  What?  Another rat trying to save his hide (like Mitch McConnell) by now rallying to President Trump after throwing him under the bus?  Kemp won’t be governor after November 2022 because Doug Collins is going to beat him like an old Green Stamps drum.
  88. 2021 Thursday J: Some news sources are suggesting that Mike Pompeo could seek the 2024 GOP presidential nomination IF Donald Trump should not run for office.  In other GOP news, state Republican lawmakers are working to neutralize any prohibitions of the Biden administration imposed on Second Amendment rights.  God bless you.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump slams the Wall Street Journal by noting they have lost ‘great credibility.’   Next, famed U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger says that ‘Joe Biden would be wise to hang onto the Trump administration’s successes with Israel and various Arab states such as Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Sudan.’  We expect senile old Joe to spend all his time kissing the derrieres of the Iranians and the Palestinians.   
  89. 2021 Thursday K: Cochise County, Arizona, Sheriff Mark Dannels says that ‘Joe Biden’s pullback from the U.S.-Mexico border is creating highways for Mexican cartels to transport drugs, human beings and possibly even terrorists into the United States.’  Sheriff Bill Waybourn of Tarrant County, Texas told Chris Salcido of Newsmax that the cartels are insinuating criminals and thugs into the United States.   Representative Andy Biggs, R-AZ, says DHS Secretary Mayorkas totally wrong, that border officials are being swamped by the massive invasion of illegal aliens.  Again, we say, “Light ‘em up,’ we must do what we must to save the country.
  90. 2021 Thursday L: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 115,467,624 confirmed cases, +470,711, 2,565,369, confirmed deaths, +10,455, and 65,296,409 confirmed recoveries, +262,009.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,066,212 confirmed cases, up 68,142 from yesterday’s reporting, 523,852 confirmed deaths, UP 2,348, and 96,781,572 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 195,375 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  (Note- send the J & J vaccine overseas).
  91. 2021 Thursday M: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,582,359 confirmed cases, 53,099 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 441 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii finally has an update.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 345,271 confirmed cases, 5,075 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Nevada: currently, they have 295,082 confirmed cases, 5,085 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 789,485 confirmed cases, 5,803 confirmed deaths, and 741,167 confirmed recoveries.  Alabama not quite ready to leap onto the “NO MASK MANDATE” other southern states are doing.   Meanwhile, Larry Kudlow- Donald Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow- says the ‘key to reopening the U.S. economy is vaccinations, not multi-trillion-dollar COVID-19 relief bills.’  Amen.   Next, the leader of Ontario, Canada, is disappointed that Joe Biden is not sharing the Wuhan Virus vaccine with the Canucks.   Finally, the CEO for Warnermedia issues an apology for saying the China Virus pandemic has ‘been really good for our ratings.’  Insensitive pig.   (Note: President Jair Bolsonaro tells the Brazilian people that following the record numbers of Chi-Vi deaths, to ‘stop whining’).
  92. 2021 Thursday N: Friends, we have predicted a collapse of stock markets and commodities by early summer.  Here we are, stocks and commodities are beginning the downward slide thanks to the accumulated policies of ‘President Joe Biden’ and the Democrats.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,924.14, DOWN 345.95 points (-1.11%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,723.47, DOWN 274.28 points (-2.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.48, DOWN 51.25 points (-1.34%).  The price of GOLD is $1,694.60 per troy oz., -6.10 (-0.36%) while the price of SILVER is $25.36 per troy ounce, -0.10 (-0.40%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,130.00 per troy oz, -5.30 (-0.47%) while the price of COPPER is $3.95 per pound, -0.03 (-0.78%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,342.80 per troy oz, -11.60 (-0.49%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.27 per barrel, +0.44 (+0.69%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.13.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.81. 
  93. 2021 Thursday O: Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu vows to ‘stand against the world fighting the Iranian nuclear deal.’  Speaking of that, Israel has dispatched a submarine or two to the Persian Gulf after the Iranians attacked an Israeli-owned cargo vessel.  The Biden Administration is slapping sanctions on Myanmar’s military and government leaders.  Lot of good those will do.  Elsewhere, Bytedance is working on a Clubhouse-like app for its Chi-Com users.  Next, a Senate panel approves the nomination of Debra Haaland to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior.
  94. 2022 Thursday: Stick around for the latest…

Thursday, March 04, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

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

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

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

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

[v] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

[vi] NO economic plan put forth by President Barack Obama over his eight years in office ever generated the promised results.  It was not until Donald Trump became president that the economy began going like gangbusters.  The proof of how inept the Obama administration was is in the way in 2020 Obama tries to take credit for the Trump economy, claiming that it was ‘his.’  No, Mr. Obama, you did NOTHING to create the economy we are now enjoying.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

55. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2022

2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana. The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries. Good, let them be the guinea pigs.

  61. 2017 Friday: J.C. Penney- the company that set the standard for commercial retail stores- announces that it’s going to close between 120 to 130 stores as well as two distribution centers.   The store has made poor decisions by bringing in younger, more hip leaders in the organization that have trashed the brand and ruined the legacy of its founder.

Billy Graham arrived at the library bearing his name in Charlotte, N.C., where he would lie in repose for two days.  Meanwhile, at the Winter Olympics in South Korea, American men won the gold medal in curling in a decisive upset of Sweden; it was only the second curling medal in U.S. history.  (Editor’s note: curling is a bullshit sport).  Finally, in the aftermath of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, WOKE liberal corporations such as Hertz Rent-a-Car, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and First National Bank of Omaha sever ties with the National Rifle Association.
  63. 2019 Sunday: In the 91st Academy Awards, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen[x] wins four big awards while “Black Panther,” “Green Book” (Best Picture), and “Roma” which had four awards.  It was tough going between “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Black Panther,” both films were extremely popular.  It’s a shame Chadwick Boseman couldn’t have won Best Actor.
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Armenia closes its border with Iran following the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in that country.  Oman- in the Persian Gulf- shuts off air traffic from Iran into its country.  In Italy, another 74 cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu brings the country’s number of cases to 224 what with another four fatalities.  Next, due to South Korea’s outbreak of coronavirus, Vietnam announces its airlines will suspend flight to the country the following day.   In the United States, reported cases are now at 53 as they begin to spread in the Pacific Northwest.  Pakistan’s airlines suspend flights to the People’s Republic of China as it attempts to arrest the number of cases coming to its borders.  Around the Persian Gulf, various nations are reporting their first cases while in Europe, Spain reports its first cases.  
  65. 2021 Wednesday: Day 36 of the Biden Regime- Sean Hannity reports that the Democrats  are striving to find a way with which, they can remove the nuclear codes from the responsibilities of the president, i.e., the commander-in-chief which in this case is ‘Joe Biden’ (in truth, Barack Obama via Kamala Harris).  House Democrats want to hold sole authority for launching nuclear weapons should the necessity arise the United States needs to launch them.  Why would the Democrats be striving to weaken the powers of the president? 
  66. 2021 Wednesday A: Much to the disgust of New York Attorney General Leticia James, the ever-volatile chief lawmaker of the Empire State, no charges will be filed against the seven Rochester police officers involved in the death of druggie Daniel Prude, a doped-up fool who was naked but for a spit hood on his head.  Ms. James sought to make the case a focal point of her career, but her hopes were dashed when a grand jury found the officers behaved within department policy. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday B: Failed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is a ‘yes vote’ on the confirmation of Judge Merrick Garland to be the nation’s next attorney-general.  “Cocaine Mitch” joins ranks with several other RINOs to announce a ‘yes vote’ for the wily evader of all pertinent questions.   Elsewhere, 13 Republican House members urge the FCC chair to back ‘free speech’ over leftist demands for ‘censorship’ of all speech other than what they approve.   Meanwhile, the Dems hold hearings on Capitol Hill in the House with which to forge ahead of de-platforming One America News, Newsmax, and Fox News Channel.  We expect they will soon come after Talk Radio as well as online speech in blogs.    Finally, 14 House Republicans are requesting the FBI provide information on just how deep Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell’s ties go to communist China.  The Republicans want to know just how compromised the government is by the Democrat’s schlepping of a Chi-Com intelligence agent.  We want to know the answers, too.
  68. 2021 Wednesday C: The White House press briefing room is cleared and cleaned after an unnamed reporter tests positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hold hearings on Republican-requested curbs on the Democrats scheme to federalize ALL voting via the H.R. 1 ‘For the People’ bulls**t bill currently being pushed by the Dems.  This bill is wholly unconstitutional.   Elsewhere, RINO Congressman Fred Upton, Michigan 6th District, finds himself censured yet again over his recent vote to expel Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from the haloed halls of Congress over her support of President Donald J. Trump.  Cass County, Michigan, slapped the censure on him today.   Finally, former President Barack Hussein Obama says that ‘white resentment and resistance’ is what stalled discussion of reparations for those descended from slaves.[xi]
  69. 2021 Wednesday D:  Free Speech founder Bradley Smith says the ‘Democrats targeting conservatives is a rank abuse of power.’  Yet, the Democrats are working overtime to prevent conservative speech being heard anywhere.  Elsewhere, another federal judge bans the enforcement of the ban of deporting illegal aliens.  Under the Biden regime, ALL illegal aliens can remain in the country.  Also- why aren’t the Democrats weeping and wailing over the big blue Quonset huts down along the southern border filled to the brim with the 5,000 illegal aliens being apprehended per day?  When Trump was president, they were gnashing their teeth, smearing their fetid bodies with ashes, donning sackcloth, and scourging their backs.  Now, not so much.  Hypocrites.
  70. 2021 Wednesday E: The International Olympic Committee is preparing to announce its preferred bidder for the 2032 Summer Olympics.  Who could it be?  Russia?  The Chi-Coms?  Iran?  We’ll have to wait and see.  Speaking of Iran, people are speculating that all the missiles being fired out of the crap-hole country are a message directed at the ‘Biden administration.’   Elsewhere, everyone was awaiting information as to when the court date for aged rocker Bruce “I Love Obama” Springsteen[xii] were going to be.  Then, we heard the court threw out the drunken driving charges against the “Boss.”   In other sad news, the Cancel Culture now labels the movie, “Grease,” as being BAD.  It’s bad because they claim there’s misogyny, that it’s sexist, that it’s homophobic, and that it slut-shames.’  Gee whiz sounds like a movie everyone should see.  This is the trouble when a bunch of morons attempts to judge the past by the present.  Remember lefties, one day, YOU will be the ones a future generation is judging.   
  71. 2021 Wednesday F: A recent anthropological study suggests that when early humans came to the Americas between 10-12 thousand years ago (although evidence suggests human habitation in North America as far back as 60,000 years), dogs traveled here with them.   In other news, an upcoming U.S. report lays the blame for the death of U.S.-Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi directly at the feet of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday G: Democrats are set to vote on their PORKULUS, aka the COVID-19 Relief Bill this Friday.  Out of $1.9 trillion (money being borrowed from the Chi-Coms), $350 billion is going to state and local governments (think Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Mayor Eric Garcetti, and other BIG BLUE STATE liberal locales.  Another $86 billion is going to fund union pension plans (think teachers’ unions and the like), $129 billion to schools, whether they reopen or not, another $15 billion to Medicaid expansion (think FREE healthcare for illegal aliens), $30 billion for public transit (liberals hate private cars), and at least $500 million for the arts, humanities, museums, and libraries.  ONLY 9-percent of this appalling amount of cash is going to Chinese Virus needs.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says, ‘it’s crazy to borrow money to fund this liberal wish list of bailouts, handouts, giveaways, and bull crap.’  However, more than 150 BIG BUSINESS executives support this insanity as they hope to latch their grubby mitts onto this handout of money borrowed from Beijing.    
  73. 2021 Wednesday H: Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, serving on the House task force on the Chi-Coms says there is NO way the Chi-Coms should host the Olympics and that to have the American flag flying in the PRC would be wrong.  The Chi-Coms bear full responsibility for the deaths of victims of the ‘VID and that to honor them would be to dishonor everyone else. 
  74. 2021 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 112,214,084 confirmed cases, +389,387, 2,487,568, confirmed deaths, +10,900, and 63,368,513 confirmed recoveries, +269,020.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,526,532 confirmed cases, up 63,214 from yesterday’s reporting, 507,469 confirmed deaths, UP 2,234, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last four-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 178,955 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the hell is it you feeble old Chi-Com stooge?  It seems that everyone around ‘Pro-China Joe’ is ‘Pro-Chi-Coms.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,543,162 confirmed cases, 49,895 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 339,051 confirmed cases, 4,947 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Oklahoma: currently, they have 421,010 confirmed cases, 4,264 confirmed deaths, and 403,159 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 759,572 confirmed cases, 5,634 confirmed deaths, and 712,555 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Mexico: 2,052,266 confirmed cases, 181,809 confirmed deaths, and 1,607,869 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, medical researchers now fear coronavirus variants.  Will they subject us to continued lockdowns, restrictions, and intimidation?  F**k them.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ says it’s shipping 14.5 million doses of the Wuhan Virus Crisis vaccine to the states this week.   Finally, the FDA says that Johnson & Johnson’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine meets emergency usage standards.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,961.86, UP 424.51 points (+1.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,597.97, UP 132.77 points (+0.99%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,925.43, UP 44.06 points (+1.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.00 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.34%) while the price of SILVER is $28.01 per troy ounce, +0.15 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,275.40 per troy oz, +17.50 (+1.39%) while the price of COPPER is $4.32 per pound, +0.02 (+0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,442.50 per troy oz, +89.50 (+3.80%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.45 per barrel, +0.23 (+0.36%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.36.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000020 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, new home sales are up by 4-percent whereas new mortgages are down by 11-percent.
  77. 2021 Wednesday L: The state attorney general of West Virginia- Patrick Morrissey- rejects lawmakers’ calls to ban or censor news programming.   Meanwhile, Donald Trump teases his upcoming speech at CPAC by suggesting that he’s going to blast enfeebled Joe Biden and tease his upcoming 2024 run for the White House.  This would explain why the Dems are seeking to make Joe Biden a ‘prime minister’ and neuter his presidency (if you can call it that).  Next, noted legal scholar Jonathan Turley suggests the ‘new red scare’ is intimidating conservative voices into silence.  Regarding this, Arizona GOP Congressman Andy Biggs says the ‘pressure on media platform providers to silence conservative voices is intense.  Finally, Palm Beach County, Florida, refuses to lower flags for famed radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Powerball and Super Lotto drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3537 with a $23 million on the line: 07, 34, 38, 44, 47, and Mega 07.  Out of 113,786 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $18,478.  One ticket was sold at a Chevron in Los Angeles, CA  while the second was at Sky Fuel in El Cajon, CA 92021.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball #823 with a $90 million jackpot just waiting to be grabbed by some lucky individual: 04, 33, 43, 53, 65, and Powerball 21.  Out of 56,233 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $32,139.
  79. 2021 Wednesday N: A former aid to New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo details the ongoing sexual harassment she suffered at the hands of this slack-jawed bottom-feeder.  Shame, Andrew, shame.  Elsewhere, a misguided poll reports that a majority of Republicans back Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Chinese Virus Relief Bill.  We do not believe this report.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasts the Democrats’ attempt at de-platforming conservative news media sites.  He also says that President Donald J. Trump’s help in retaking the House for the GOP is going to be extremely important.   Next, failed- and- censured Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO, continues bad-mouthing President Donald J. Trump, blaming him for the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter- led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the very same riots used by Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to turn Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill and White House into a Baghdad-like Green Zone.  Some wag on Newsmax said that Congresswoman Cheney is auditioning for a future job on CNN (or better- MSNBC).  Liz, from all of us to you, “SHUT YOUR RINO MOUTH!”  Congressman McCarthy whip this RINO into line or strip her of her committee assignments the same way the RINOs did Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene.   
  80. 2021 Wednesday O: Grant Stinchfield reports on Newsmax that Chi-Com facial recognition software is being used in the United States.   As he says, ‘overreaching surveillance in the U.S. is infringing on every American’s civil liberties.’  As he says, the Chi-Coms tested the software on Uighur Muslims who slave away in Xinjiang concentration camps on behalf of Coca-Cola, Nike, Apple, and other global corporations (as well as have their organs harvested for the global organ market) and now with the help of Democrats like ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and others are transforming the entire world into a vast surveillance state.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ the old coot he’s also revoking Trump-imposed bans on the numbers of foreign workers and Green Card holders allowed into the United States.  In a country beset by Chi-Com-caused Panda Pandemic unemployment, ‘Old Joe’ is flooding the country with hundreds of thousands (and soon millions) of people who are going to Americans’ jobs.  Time for the RED STATES to form a new country and abandon ship.   In other news, calls for the impeachment of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continue to grow led by Democrats in state government.
  81. 2021 Wednesday P: Jen Psaki says 11 million illegal alien fence-jumpers and river-swimmers and visa-overstays will soon have a pathway to citizenship.  The Dems continue braying about ’11 million, 11 million, 11 million’ when in fact, sources within the government say the number is closer to 30 to 50 million illegal aliens hiding in the shadows except, of course, when they commit crimes on one another and against U.S. citizens.  When the 11 million illegals are ‘legalized,’ they are going to receive free health care, free housing, free food stamps, free in-state tuition, free transportation, free this, free that while American citizens foot the bill and languish without jobs. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana.  The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries.  Good, let them be the guinea pigs.  Next, the White House says a call between President Biden and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will ‘happen soon.’  White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday that a classified U.S. report confirms the fact that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the hit on Jamal Khashoggi.  C’ est la vie.
  83. 2022 Thursday: Join us later in the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “Chicago 1970”- came out on August 07, 2020.  The album featured a stripped down, lean, mean, music-fighting machine featuring NO female vocalist for the first time in the group’s history.  However, the band did feature Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  You can see, hear, and feel Richard Thompson’s growing power within the band, power that would eventually propel him out on his own being a rocker at heart.  We love this album as we know you will so why waste time?  Seek it out now, give it a listen, and make it a part of your daily listening enjoyment.  You will be glad you did.  Undoubtedly!

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

Wednesday, February 24, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

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

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


Thursday, February 24, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] Juan Peron’s wife, Eva Peron, is the woman who that dingbat from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez models her loser self after which is why we have bestowed upon her the name, “Baby Evita.”

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

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

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of George Thorogood but when we do you will be the first to know. 

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] In 2020, Democrats are whining that Donald Trump wanted a quid pro quo from Ukraine to get U.S. military aid.  Yet here, we have a prime example as to WHY and HOW foreign aid is doled out by countries around the world.  President Jimmy Carter said that ‘he would consider human rights abuses before doling out American aid to countries around the world.  Quid pro quo?  You had better flipping believe it and a damned good one in our view so Democrats, stop with the f**king sniveling, enough is enough already.

[viii] In 2019, the question is, “Is the late John Dingell looking UP or is he looking DOWN?

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

[x] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[xi] The real reason as to WHY talk of reparations stalled is because (1) it’s crazy, there is NO one alive today descended from slavery prior to 1865 and (2) Democrats love talking about it but will never do anything to solve it as once they solve it, they can no longer use it as a drum to beat around the clock.  Besides, there are so many interracial couples, kids, and others so how is it going to work, is the WHITE spouse going to hand the BLACK spouse a check?  What’s more, what the liberals never tell you is that like the COVID-19 relief, the recipients will have to pay taxes on this money.  When it comes to liberals there are no FREE lunches.  Period.  It’s also important to note that Obama would never have been elected TWICE without white voters so Mr. ‘Unqualified President (due to being born in Kenya and not in the United States) Obama, STFU.

[xii] We will never promote the music of this no-talent POS.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

53. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2022

2021 Monday: Day 34 of the BIDEN REGIME. Joe Biden extends mortgage relief protections through June harming landlords and mortgage companies.

  75. 2020 Saturday A: Italy reports its first two deaths from the Panda Pandemic.  South Korea reports that another 229 of its citizens have contracted the COVID-19 Chi-Vi which increases their numbers to more than 400 people afflicted with the Beijing Bug.  The Iraqis report their first case while in Washington state, 34 cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu are announced with more expected to come.  Elsewhere, Samoa announces that it’s going to turn all cruise ships away due to the growing spread of this lab-engineered pandemic.
  76. 2021 Monday: Day 34 of the BIDEN REGIME.  Joe Biden extends mortgage relief protections through June harming landlords and mortgage companies.  The question is, when things return to ‘normal,’ will the people being aided by the government be able to catch their rents/mortgages up?   Next, Joe Biden eliminates President Donald J. Trump’s citizenship test for illegal fence-jumpers and river-swimmers.  Speaking of illegal aliens, ICE reports that illegal aliens are getting their Chi-Vi vaccines ahead of U.S. citizens.  Representative Debbie Lesko, R-AZ, is upset about this, saying that seniors call her office every day to discover when they will be able to receive their vaccines.  Nope, we must immunize illegal aliens and felons first.  Another Arizona lawmaker, Congressman Andy Biggs, Republican, says there is ‘an explosion of unaccompanied illegal alien minors at the border.’  We encourage laying in of minefields. 
  77. 2021 Monday A: As Joe Biden nominee confirmations continue, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says she WON’T vote to confirm OMB nominee Neera Tanden for hateful attacks on Republicans.  Meanwhile, Judge Merrick Garland, Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney-general is shagging questions today in the U.S. Senate.  He claims that ‘politics won’t influence or affect criminal probes into scumbags such as Hunter Biden.’  We shall see.   Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Judge Garland for not labeling James Comey as a ‘TERRIBLE’ FBI director.  Next, the White House calls for a ‘moment of silence’ (what a load of festering fecal matter) over hitting the dubious benchmark of more than half-a-million deaths.  (Please see our ‘VID statistics later today so you can see just how many people have succumbed to the Wuhan Virus Crisis while Joe Biden’s been in the White House.  It’s a whole lot, folks…).  Finally, New Jersey’s governor signs a bill establishing the framework for legal pakalolo in his state.
  78. 2021 Monday B: Chi-Com news- Researchers conclude that the Chi-Coms copied NSA spyware code which should surprise NO one.  In other SHOCKING NEWS, the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology is going to continue receiving U.S. taxpayers’ dollars for continued research into bat viruses and other evil stuff.  WHY are we funding the Chi-Com research, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, especially when they are the ones who caused the global pandemic, whether through ineptitude or on purpose?  What’s more, we should be doing our own biowarfare research, not giving the Chi-Coms our money.  Someone, please impeach and remove Joe Biden NOW.  In other Chi-Com-related news, Representative Bill Johnson says, ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies show weakness on the Chi-Coms human rights abuses.’  After all, ‘Pro-China Joe’ shut the Keystone XL pipeline down on Day No. 1 so that oil will be flowing west from Canada’s coast to mainland China.  Finally, the Chi-Coms are urging their stooge in the White House to lift all trade sanctions and tariffs and to show Beijing some ‘goodwill.’  F**k Beijing.
  79. 2021 Monday C: The Roberts Supreme Court continues to show it’s in league with the Washington, D.C. swamp when Roberts says, ‘it’s okay for New York prosecutors to get their grubby hands-on Donald J. Trump’s tax records as far back as 2011.  We also hear that Associate Justice Clarence Thomas blasted Roberts and other liberal justices for their unwillingness to hear cases related to the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election.   SCOTUS could also hear cases on various states’ new laws restricting abortion rights within their borders.  We know how John Roberts will rule now don’t we? 
  80. 2021 Monday D: Corrupt (allegedly) Dominion Voting Systems is suing My Pillow’s Mike Lindell for his blowing the lid off the can regarding Dominion’s and associated company, Smartmatic’s hand in STEALING the 2020 Presidential Election as well as various other elections around the country.   Elsewhere, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she’s whose face droops down on one side, is funneling $300,000 to help gerrymandering efforts after condemning Republicans for gerrymandering districts in Red States.  Say it ain’t so, Nancy!
  81. 2021 Monday E: The Harris administration, uh, the ‘Biden administration’ is downplaying the rhetoric on Iran, hoping the Iranians will return to the flawed JCPOA- the Iran nuclear ‘deal.’  Speaking of the Iranians, the head of the IAEA says Iran is ‘going to limit access to its nuclear programs.’  Hmmm, why would this be?  Speaking of Iran, eight rockets were fired at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone today.   Also speaking of Iran, U.S. families of detained Americans in that hellish, pro-jihad country are begging the ‘Biden administration’ to do something to get their family members home.  Come on, Joe, do something about getting these people repatriated to the U.S.
  82. 2021 Monday F: An NBC poll shows- much to their horror- that blue collar workers of all colors flocked to President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, when he gives the keynote address at CPAC this week, with a ‘show of force,’ he’s going to place his grip onto the GOP.  The Grand Old Party is Trump’s party, and we look forward to seeing “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell’s RINO picks fall in one election after another.  McConnell must be impeached and removed from office.   In other news, a high school senior in New York City is battling the Di Blasio Regime over its closure of Trump Corporation-operated ice-skating rinks.  In other news, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, aka “BoJo,” says that all UK schools should be reopened by March 8.  Excellent.  IF only U.S. educators would follow suit.
  83. 2021 Monday G: The United States Marine Corps is going to substitute ‘board games’ for its upcoming March military drills so as to create ‘smart infantry.’  Sounds like a load of bull crap to us, a stinking load of bull crap.  Meanwhile, 170 of 254 counties in Texas are struggling with winter-related storms and power outages- fresh water is difficult by which to come.  Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer blames Texas for what’s happened to it saying they chose to go alone on energy and now they must sleep in the bed they made.’  Good, Chuck, good.  What a POS.  In other news, the family of slain Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X (allegedly, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan is the man who ordered the hit) wants the case reopened so the law can find and punish his murderers.  Find Reverend Louie and ask HIM.   Elsewhere, United Airlines is pulling 24 of it Boeing 777 airliners out of use to double check the engines.   Finally, Joe Biden says smaller firms will have exclusive PPP access over the next two weeks.
  84. 2021 Monday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,434,139 confirmed cases, +165,977, 2,467,481 confirmed deaths, +3,462, and 62,896,305 confirmed recoveries, +149,843.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,409,269 confirmed cases, up 84,306 from yesterday’s reporting, 504,012 confirmed deaths, UP 1,519, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than four weeks- what’s up with that? NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 174,411 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S. which means, you have more than half of what Trump had from the beginning of the outbreak which means you are a failure like Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  85. 2021 Monday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,531,979 confirmed cases, 49,380 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,950 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Louisiana: currently, they have 426,644 confirmed cases, 9,477 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 750,043 confirmed cases, 5,577 confirmed deaths, and 704,018 confirmed recoveries.

  87.  2021 Monday K: Following an Australian news anchor pointing out the obvious- that the ‘leader of the Free World (Joe Biden) seems to be cognitively disabled,’ Facebook bans Australian citizens from using its platform.  WTF?  Everyone knows that ‘Pro-China Joe’ is not there.  He demonstrates it every day and the fact that Kamala Harris is making phone calls to foreign leaders should worry the hell out of everyone.  Not only is the woman easily bought, but she’s also not that bright so the American people must begin demanding an accounting of what the Democrats did during the 2020 Presidential Election.   Meanwhile, the National Spelling Bee will return but in a mostly virtual format.  Elsewhere, the liberal mainstream media is going after Newsmax, One America News, and Fox News.  They cannot stand for free-flowing speech.
  88. 2022 Tuesday: Let’s see what chicanery ensues today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s studio album, “Shuffle and Go,” came out on February 21, 2020, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 13 glorious tracks, all of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

  62. 2020 Monday: The impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump resumes with the defense putting on its second day of arguments in support of the 45th president.  Some of the points made by the team are devastating for the partisan Democrats seeking to topple him.   Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms send high-ranking officials to Wuhan to investigate WTF is going on there with the COVID-19 epidemic.   Meanwhile, Germany confirms its first case of the rapidly spreading virus.
  63. 2021 Wednesday: Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joins the conservative Washington, D.C., think tank, the Hudson Institute.  They are proud to have him and look forward to a glorious future.  Mr. Pompeo raises warnings about Beijing’s control over the current ‘president.’  Meanwhile, the GOP is attempting to respond in real time to all the moves the Biden administration is rapidly doing.  We hope so because ‘President’ Biden is going to ruin the country if not stopped.   Speaking of Biden-initiated damage, Senator Steve Daines says that ‘Biden is returning America to the 1970s’ when we were dependent upon foreign countries for our supply of energy.  We must fight all the bogus Climate Change executive orders the senile 46th president is forcing down the throats of the American people.  Elsewhere, sniveling left-wing groups are braying for Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s resignation over past remarks ‘advocating violence’ against Democratic leaders such as drooling octogenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Grow up and shut up.
  64. 2021 Wednesday A: ‘President’ Joe Biden calls Texas GOP Congressman Chip Roy ‘un-American’ after Congressman Roy said, more of less of the 46th president’s mask mandate that #46 could kiss his rear end. So what?  What Democrats said about Trump was far worse so ‘Beijing Biden’ should STFU.  Next, ‘President’ Biden says he’s going to reopen the Obamacare markets so people can rush out and get them some Obamacare once again.  Wow.  Speaking of ‘Beijing Biden,’ people are curious as to WHY he remains MUM on Chi-Com repression as well as its continued lies that ‘Wuhan virus no come from Wuhan but come from outside China.  No good Imperialist running dog Yankee send this crap to PRC and then blame us.’  Sure, we did, sure.  Meanwhile, a new poll suggests Americans are growing eager to receive their vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  NOT us, we are content to wait at the very back of the line, after felons, illegal aliens, and foreign countries.
  65. 2021 Wednesday B: YouTube extends its ban on former President Donald J. Trump.  Next, Google plans to launch a new Website in Australia amid content payment battle between the massive search engine and the Australian government.   Meanwhile, BOTH Twitter and Facebook are attempting to make it appear that they are ‘neutral’ by shutting down some Antifa and other leftist groups accounts.  All in a day’s work.  Speaking of Antifa, journalist Andy Ngo is returning to the relative safety in England over death threats spewing from the pie holes of Antifa thugs.  Mr. Ngo says the authorities in the U.S. have done nothing about the threats, even when he provided them with personal information.  That’s left-leaning America for you.
  66. 2021 Wednesday C: Once again, the Cancel Culture strikes as famed conservative pitcher, World Series winner and advocate for autistic children, Steve Schilling denied a place in the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame.  Elsewhere, a Wisconsin pharmacist- Steve Brandenburg- who corrupted more than 500 doses of the vaccine for the Chi-Vi pleaded guilty in a federal court to multiple charges, each of which carries a 10-year-maximum penalty.  Apparently, he subscribed to ‘conspiracy theories’ and ‘alternative histories,’ which seems to be a common charge nowadays, but we do not condone what he did.  Speaking of COVID-19, a recent CDC study shows ‘low spread of the virus in schools.’  Thus, the question- why are the schools still closed?
  67. 2021 Wednesday D: A coalition of left-wing activists launch a campaign in support of ‘President’ Joe Biden’s immigration reform bill meaning allow in millions of illegals, make them citizens, and give them all benefits while everyone pays for it.  Elsewhere, in New York City, a NYPD officer is recovering in the hospital after being shot in the low back by a perp the night before.  Of course, Mayor Bill Di Blasio shows ‘concern.’  Meanwhile, a hostage situation at a children’s hospital in Austin, Texas, leaves two people dead.   Next, New York Republican lawmakers introduce a bill to help restaurant owners and employees in their state even if Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo won’t.   Speaking of corrupt governors, a Southern California GOP group calls for incompetent Golden State Governor Gavin Newsom to resign.
  68. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden signs three executive orders today- all dealing with racial equity and climate change- bringing the number of orders signed in the first eight days to 40- an unheard-of number- which tells us he does not expect to continue without opposition for much longer.  Opposition from where?  No one knows.  Elsewhere, Goldman-Sachs CEO David Solomon receives a pay cut of $10 million over his firm’s ties to the 1MDB Malaysian bribery scandal.   Speaking of corruption, a UK lawmaker is accusing HSBC of aiding the Chi-Coms in their Hong Kong crackdown. 
  69. 2021 Wednesday F: Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, Democrat, says ‘Democrats should set aside impeachment and seek censure of former President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, former Trump White House Chief of State Mark Meadows says that President Biden is putting America last with all his executive orders.   Elsewhere, religious liberties advocates are fearful over the ‘tumultuous days ahead under the Biden administration.’   Next, the Netherlands are facing the worst civil unrest in four decades as people have grown increasingly angry over the harsh China Virus lockdowns and restrictions in that Western European nation.    
  70. 2021 Wednesday G: A U.S. terrorism alert- political violence might be coming.  Of course, political violence is coming, and they know it: another false flag operation around the time the U.S. Senate conducts the second Trump impeachment trial, Antifa violence with members dressed as Trump supporters once again, hence why 7,000 National Guard troops remain in Washington, D.C.  WHEN the Antifa violence erupts, the Democrats will use it as yet another pretext for taking more rights away from the American people.  ALL Trump supporters MUST avoid any public demonstrations.  Speaking of former President Trump, his popularity among Republicans is at 81-percent. Meanwhile, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ, says Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are drawing armies of illegals to the southern border.   Elsewhere,  in the first week of the Biden administration, we see loss of tens of thousands of jobs, tens of thousands more dead from the Chinese Virus, and SIX MILLION more returned to the Food Stamp rolls after a steep decline in Food Stamp use under the previous administration thanks to a booming economy.
  71. 2021 Wednesday H: Actress Cloris Leachman dies at age 94.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken sees a ‘long road ahead to an Iran deal.’  We already had one- choke them out of existence.  No wonder Israel is on high alert regarding the Islamic Republic.  However, new Secretary of State Blinken seeks a close cooperation with the Chi-Coms which is understandable because both he and his boss, President Joe Biden have benefitted from Chi-Com largesse.  Spooky.  Elsewhere, Dick Morris tells Newsmax TV that the Biden administration is WRONG in banning the 1776 Commission.  We concur.
  72. 2021 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 100,739,720 confirmed cases, +538,462, 2,170,237, confirmed deaths, +15,707, and 55,684,777 confirmed recoveries, +367,853.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,769,724 confirmed cases, up 165,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 431,377 confirmed deaths, UP 4,253, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as yesterday’s.
  73. 2021 Wednesday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,234,088 confirmed cases, 38,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,903 confirmed cases, 404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 307,880 confirmed cases, 4,245 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Vermont: currently, they have 11,379 confirmed cases, 172 confirmed deaths, and 7,696 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 621,590 confirmed cases, 4,605 confirmed deaths, and 542,345 confirmed recoveries.  
  74. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,303.17, DOWN 633.87 points (-2.05%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,270.60, DOWN 335.47 points (-2.61%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,750.77, DOWN 98.85 points (-2.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,837.70 per troy oz., -7.20 (-0.39%) while the price of SILVER is $25.24 per troy ounce, -0.144 (-0.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,069.70 per troy oz, -9.30 (-0.86%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.02 (-0.56%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,310.50 per troy oz, -14.50 (-0.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.39 per barrel, -0.46 (-0.87%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.28.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000033 Bitcoin.   
  75. 2021 Wednesday L: Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said virus uncertainty remains high and called on Congress to pass more stimulus to boost the U.S. Economy.   Yet, the country is trillions of dollars in debt.  The best way to repair the damage caused by the Wuhan Virus is to REOPEN the economy, permit the American people to return to work, seal the borders to all illegal aliens, and offer low-cost recovery loans like what happened following the San Francisco Earthquake (the original one) and subsequent fire.  That is how Bank of America became as powerful and as big as they are.  In other news, the FBI arrested journalist Doug Mackey today for political memes he shared online back in 2016.  WTF?  Is this man a CRIMINAL?
  76. 2021 Wednesday M: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3529 with a $15 million jackpot on the line: 09, 10, 16, 30, 46, and Mega 13.  Out of 117,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $12,297 apiece.  One ticket was sold at Circle K at El Cajon, CA, 92019, the next at the Dollar Plus and Party Supplies, in Vallejo, CA 94589, and the third at the Wen’s Donut and Bakery, South El Monte, CA 91733.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #815 with a pot of $20 million up for grabs- 17, 33, 35, 42, 52, and Powerball 09.  Out of 54,394 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $14,217 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “Fame and Glory”- came out on January 12, 2009, and features a delightful collection of tunes from this legendary British folk-rock group and their collaboration with Breton composer, Alan Simon.  Of all British bands of this nature, Fairport Convention- and the Strawbs- have gone the distance and what a distance it has been.  It must be horribly tough for archivists to cull through hours and hours and hours of music, seeking the perfect tidbit, the perfect nugget, the perfect audio keepsake for fans- novice and veteran alike- to cherish forever.  We hope you will visit your favorite site for the absolute best in rock and popular music and consider adding it to your collection.  We think you will be extremely glad that you did.  Seek it out now.
