  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

  57. 2005 Monday: About 50 miles north of Kabul, Afghanistan, something goes awry at a munitions dump.  The place blows up killing dozens of people with no full accounting of how many took a one-way trip to meet with Allah or how many others were left devastated one way or another.  Wow.

  62. 2010 Sunday: The European Union and International Monetary Fund present Greece with 120 billion Euro bailout packages, to help rid them of their sovereign debt.   Elsewhere, following the bombing of the Mogadishu mosque yesterday, the death toll rises to 45 and the focus falls on the al-Qaida trash.  Light them up.
  63. 2011 Monday: As the news continues to spread about whacking Osama bin Laden, tens of thousands of people gather at Ground Zero in New York City as well as in other places around the country to celebrate the death of this terrorist POS.  The world also learns that in accordance with Islamic law, U.S. military authorities buried him via a sea burial in the Indian Ocean so that a burial site on land would not become a terrorist shrine.  The Allies did the same thing with the Nazis executed at Nuremburg.  They were cremated and went into a river.

  67. 2015 Saturday: In a boxing match that shattered financial records for the sport, Floyd Mayweather Jr. beats Manny Pacquiao on points in 12 rounds in the world unification welterweight title bout.  What a fight.  Congratulations to Mr. Mayweather.   Elsewhere, as the Nigerian military continues fighting through the Sambisa Forest, the government announces that another 234 women and girls have been rescued from the clutches of the Islamist group, Boko Haram.
  68. 2016 Monday: The ‘religion of peace’ is on the move yet again, this time in Baghdad, Iraq, where three separate bombings claim the lives of at least 14 poor souls including a number of Shiite pilgrims while the Syrian Army takes up positions around its prison in the city of Hama where violent prisoners have overthrown the prison staff and are holding them as hostages.  What will President Bashar al-Assad do?  We think he’ll employ poison gas inside the prison killing all of them (and the guards).   
  69. 2016 Monday A: Elsewhere, the Catholic Church in the Philippines urges its followers to reject Roderigo Duterte who seems to be little more than a whack job.  Down in Venezuela, El Presidente Nicolas Maduro orders clocks in his nation to be moved forward by half-an-hour since the country is facing a major electricity shortage and that somehow moving the clocks up by 30 minutes will alleviate the suffering of the people.  YOU know what will alleviate their suffering?  Your fat neck dangling from a noose in the center of Caracas.  POS communist.
  70. 2017 Tuesday: Still angry from yesterday’s provocative overflight of the Korean Peninsula by two U.S. B-1B heavy bombers, Kim Jong Un warns the world that due to President Donald J. Trump’s belligerent stance against the peaceful Democratic Republic of North Korea, the military is going to accelerate its nuclear weapons programs and ‘could test a nuke at any time’ so there.  Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Times reports that Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro is going to ‘draft a new constitution’ seeing as how violent mobs are protesting his regime in the streets.
  71. 2018 Wednesday: Disaster befalls romaine lettuce in Yuma, Arizona, as a massive e. coli outbreak sickens at least 121 people across 25 states killing one in the process.  Grocery stores around the country put out immediate recalls and stop-sales on all romaine lettuces, fresh and packaged, coming out of the region.   Elsewhere, as a show of good faith, ahead of the summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the North Koreans release the last three American detainees they have been keeping as a potential future trump card.
  72. 2019 Thursday: Iowa passes one of the strictest abortion bans saying ‘can’t happen’ after the detection of a fetal heartbeat.  Good for them.   Elsewhere, Senator Michael Bennet, D-CO, says he is in the running for the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  No one cares.  Meanwhile, Facebook and Instagram ban several big names from its site for spreading violence and hate.  Among the folks bumped off the sites are Alex Jones, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, Milo Yiannopoulos, and several others.  We shall see.
  73. 2020 Saturday: After California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom orders ONLY the beaches of Orange County closed, the sheriff of the county says, ‘he will not enforce the order.’  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19- Wuhan Flu front- confirmed global cases are 3,424,254; confirmed deaths sit at 243,674; and confirmed recoveries are 1,092,715.  In the United States, the Kung Flu Virus Crisis- given us by the communist Chinese- is thus: confirmed cases sit at 1,157,782, confirmed deaths at 67,046, and confirmed recoveries are 150,934.  Meanwhile, the communist Chinese claim the following numbers (let’s see if they have changed): confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785!  Which is almost the same as one week ago, lying scumbags.  Around the United States, more states continue reopening and no upticks in the Coronavirus Crisis are seen so to all authoritarian governors out there, you better lighten up.  (It is interesting to note that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is still whining about ‘Confederate and swastika flags being seen at protests but every piece of film we have looked at, those flags are nowhere to behold.  ANTIFA- do your job, go to Michigan, and protest this b***h).
  74. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 153,467,379 confirmed cases, +667,534, 3,215,537  confirmed deaths, +9,349, and 131,436,594 confirmed recoveries, +71,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,178,844 confirmed cases, UP 29,104 from yesterday’s reporting, 591,056 confirmed deaths, UP 306,[viii] and 25,777,864 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,866.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix] 
  75. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 276,388 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 281.6 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,812 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,586 deaths. 
  76. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,745,332 confirmed cases, 61,920 confirmed deaths, and 1,993,102 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,242,778 confirmed cases, 35,269 confirmed deaths, and 1,805,359 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,580 confirmed cases, 483 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 406,908 confirmed cases, 5,563 confirmed deaths, and 191,652 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Alaska, a once reliable DEEP RED state before the Democratic-Socialists corrupted it: they have 65,409 confirmed cases, 341 confirmed deaths, and 56,476 confirmed recoveries.[x]   Meanwhile, Governor Brian Kemp, R-GA, is lifting ALL remaining COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions.
  77. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,554 confirmed cases, 6,366 confirmed deaths, and 830,878 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Honduras, overloaded with way too many illegal aliens seeking asylum under Joe Biden: 213,167 cases of the virus, 5,318 confirmed deaths and 78,806 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  78. 2021 Sunday D:  Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,874.85, DOWN 185.51 points (-0.54%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,962.98, DOWN 119.86 points (-0.85%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,181.17, DOWN 30.30 points (-0.72%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.49 per barrel, -0.09 (-0.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,768.80 per troy oz., +1.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.92 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.24%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,203.90 per troy oz, -1.30 (-0.11%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, -0.01 (-0.27%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,934.50 per troy oz, -17.48 (-0.59%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,500.00 per troy oz., +150.00 (+0.51%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.21.     In Mozambican Metical, one greenback equals 57.02 and in Myanmar Kyat, a buck equals 1,550.00 and in Nicaraguan Córdoba, one dollar equals 34.85 of theirs.[xv]  
  79. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.040 per gallon, $2.780 in Florida, $3.790 in Hawaii, and $3.471 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- New Hampshire: $2.766.  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 seventh lowest gasoline price in the world- Nigeria: $1.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,240,289,802,772 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  In other business news, Berkshire-Hathaway bigwig Warren Buffet is celebrating 1st quarter earnings in 2021 of $11.7 billion.  He also is warning investors NOT to gamble on stocks.   Meanwhile, in other economic news that will trash the U.S. economy, Joe Biden is QUIETLY preparing a massive increase in Food Stamps, even higher than the one his former (well, could still be the current) boss, Barack Hussein Obama had and without going via the U.S. Congress.  Yet another unilateral move that will see millions of dollars going to illegal aliens.
  80. 2021 Sunday F: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Kansas City, Missouri- 71-year-old Joseph Naumann told Newsmax TV that ‘it’s wrong for Joe Biden to use his Catholic ‘faith’ because it misguides Catholic listeners.’  Look, WE believe (and I’m a Jew- Mo) that the Roman Catholic Church should excommunicate Joe Biden and other scurrilous, reprobate Catholics such as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the decrepit nonagenarian because she like he are big PROPONENTS of the Pro-Death Movement and NOT because they believe women have a right to control their own bodies but because they make money off it via campaign contributions.
  81. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Like Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is having a challenging time within her party for being the neo-lib that she is by going against President Donald J. Trump.  She is expected to be removed from GOP leadership by June at the latest.   Next former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says that ‘Lockheed-Martin possesses UFO wreckage. This is getting better all the time.   We are looking forward to the upcoming UFO report next month- if the feds actually release it.  Elsewhere, the runoff for the U.S. House seat in Texas 6th congressional district is between two Republicans: Susan Wright (19.2%), backed by President Donald J. Trump and Jake Ellzey (13.8%), which has the Democrats sobbing gobs of tears as they genuinely thought they were going to propel third-place runner-up Jana Lynne Sanchez (13.4%) into the House to help a beleaguered “Mumbles” Pelosi.  
  82. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, continues sharing his views on Afghanistan and says we must withdraw from the country NOW.  We concur wholeheartedly and think we should have been out of there before President George W. Bush left office (and should never have gone into Iraq).  Since going to that forlorn country, Senator Paul says we have blown $825 billion to 1 trillion building roads and schools, protecting women, and doing other non-war-fighting jobs at great cost to our country in resources and human lives.  (Note- I said yesterday that the Democrats and Neocons are seeking a “Gulf of Tonkin Incident” so they can keep forces in that s—hole country in perpetuity and to continue reaping the wealth from the Military-Industrial-Political Complex- Mo).
  83. 2021 Sunday I: Political News III– The family of the late Ashli Babbitt is suing the Capitol Hill Police Department for her murder on January 06, 2021.  We still don’t know who fired the fatal shot (but we are learning more about the officer by the day.  We believe her killing was preordained that the House speaker- in control of the Capitol Hill Police Department- wanted to make sure someone lost their life in this FALSE FLAG OPERATION)- Mo).   Elsewhere, the U.S. State Department has announced that there is “NO TRUTH” regarding a prisoner swap with the Iranians.   Meanwhile, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, says he remains hopeful on police reform occurring in the U.S. Senate.  Finally, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says of Joe Biden’s $2.1 trillion infrastructure bill that it’s ‘like someone with a new credit card.’   Finally, famed economic adviser Larry Kudlow says Joe Biden’s BIG GOVERNMENT PUSH is destabilizing and bad for the United States.’
  84. 2021 Sunday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is warning of a “U.S.-communist China Armageddon.”  Amen, Mr. Secretary, amen.   Next, Kim Jong Un warns the U.S. of GRAVE CONSEQUENCES over Joe Biden’s mumbling, stumbling speech the other day on the 99th day of his regime before a Joint Session of the U.S. Congress.   Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is being forced to answer for his personal spending.  Oooh, BoJo could be going down.  Meanwhile, riotous soccer fans stormed Manchester United’s field over the U.S.-based owners proposing the ‘Super Soccer League’ that would feature only elite teams and would be a power grab by wealthy billionaires.   Finally, a Cuban dissident’s hunger strike is challenging the communist regime. 
  85. 2021 Sunday K: Miscellaneous News I– Yesterday, the Empire State Building celebrated its 90th birthday.  Next, SpaceX’s Dragon Capsule returned four astronauts back from the International Space Station in the first nighttime landing in the Gulf of Mexico since the Apollo missions.  Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has another job (not that she shows up for any of them): she is now going to be the head of the National Space Council.
  86. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Formed in the late 1950s as the Hawks, the group that would come to be known as the Band evolved in 1967.  Featuring four Canadians and one American, the band erupted onto the stage with their first album, “Music from the Big Pink,” (July 01, 1968).  In some ways, the band was a throwback in that having performed with Bob Dylan for a lengthy time, they combined elements of acoustic folks with rock and roll with the music of the prairies, the back-hills, and other American-Canadian forms in an extremely alluring package of sound.  The band features Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  Their first album touched the souls of many and put them on a path to stardom, one that would take them to Woodstock in 1969 and beyond.  One of the big hits was “The Weight.”  What we have here is the 50th anniversary edition of this celebrated album, “Music from Big Pink 50th Anniversary Edition,” a beefed-up effort featuring all manner of additional gems for your listening pleasure.  The album came out on January 01, 2018.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did, of that, we guarantee.

  44. 2003 Sunday: Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein warned that if Iraq were attacked, it would take the war anywhere in the world “wherever there is sky, land or water.”  President George W. Bush gave the United Nations one more day to find a diplomatic solution to the standoff.     Elsewhere, American activist Rachel Corrie, 23, lost her life when an Israeli bulldozer crushed her as she was trying to block the demolition of a Palestinian home in the Gaza Strip.  No one asked the leftist to be there, and it should be clear to all that she was pretty damned stupid to put herself between the home of a terrorist and an Israeli bulldozer.  No sympathy for her.
  45. 2004 Tuesday: as things in the Iraq War continue going from bad to worse, President George W. Bush begs his Coalition allies to stick it out with the U.S.  Democrats in the U.S. are doing everything to transform the war into one of major disaster so they can elect a Democrat in November.

  49. 2008 Sunday: With the collapse of Bear Stearns over the housing crisis, the world economy finds itself on shaky footing.  This past Sunday, the Fed enabled JP Morgan to buy Bear Stearns in an effort to prevent the collapse of the nation’s fifth largest investment bank from collapse.  Sadly, it does not seem to have prevented the ongoing implosion.   JP Morgan bought the company, once valued at more than $20 billion for bargain basement prices of $270 million.  What a bargain.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms go berserk in Tibet, cracking down on protesters demanding freedom.  Word has it the Chi-Coms murdered at least 80 people in cold blood and scooped up loads of others for their concentration camps.  Basketball shoes anyone?  The Dalai Lama accused the Chin of waging a cultural genocide against his people.  No wonder the Chi-Coms want his hide.
  50. 2009 Monday: Outrage continues to grow over collapsing AIG’s decision to pay out hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to its top managers and CEO.  This leads to outrage in the street and a decision by the Obama White House to discover a way to halt this outrage.  It matters not that the executives were promised these bonuses whether the company turned a profit or not.   New York State Attorney Andrew Cuomo announces he is going to subpoena AIG so he can get some answers before his kangaroo court.  Elsewhere, following the bailouts of the big banks by the Obama administration, their thanks is to lessen lending, not increase it.  Wow.

  56. 2015 Monday: Andy Fraser, bassist of Free, dies on this date in Temecula, California.  The legendary bassist was 62 years-old.  As a musician, he played his instrument as though he was playing a lead instrument.  Listen to the live album by Free, listen to his incredible solo playing on “Mr. Big,” among others and see that he was among the greatest bassists ever, in the same class as Jack Casady of the Jefferson Airplane or Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead.  Absolutely stunning to say the least.
  57. 2016 Wednesday: Setting in motion one of the most contentious Supreme Court issues between Republicans and Democrats, President Barack Hussein Obama nominates Merrick Garland to fill the seat of deceased Republican Associate Justice Antonin Scalia.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that the voters will decide in November’s presidential election as to whom should have the honor of nominating the replacement for Scalia.  Of course, the Democrats go bat crap crazy.  Eventually with Donald Trump winning the presidency, the 45th president will nominate Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacant seat.
  58. 2017 Thursday: The anti-Trump ‘Resistance Movement’ strikes again what with not one but two federal courts blocking the president’s second travel ban.  Elsewhere, a judge in Maryland issues a temporary restraining order against President Donald J. Trump’s revised Muslim ban.

  61. 2020 Monday: Thanks to the Wuhan Virus out of Wuhan, China, panic continues gripping the world.  The markets have been in freefall, with a Bear market that began last week continuing.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 23,185.62, down 2,997.10 points.  The S & P 500 is down 324.89, closing at 2,480.64.  The NASDAQ is down 970.28 and closed at 6,904.55.  Total confirmed cases of COVID-19 around the world are 167,457 with 6,471 confirmed dead and 76,851 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, medical researchers continue trying to increase testing kits as well as experimental vaccines to fight this foreign scourge.  In the U.S., there have been 4,017 positive tests for coronavirus what with 35,840 negative tests and another 1,691 pending tests.  The United States is behind in testing but folks, you can test negative one day and positive a day or two later.   
  62. 2021 Tuesday:  FOREIGN NEWS- Intelligence analysts now report that both the Russians and their Iranian lackeys interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election to undermine and defeat Donald Trump while pushing Methuselah Joe Biden into the White House, someone easier to control and who would put America LAST rather than FIRST as President Donald J. Trump did.  No one is screaming and wailing like a bunch of banshees over 2020 Election interference while all the while they still snivel that ‘Trump stole the election in 2016 with Russian help.’  Wah, wah, wah.  
  63. 2021 Tuesday A: In other FOREIGN NEWS- the ‘Joe Biden White House’ is confused as to WHY Kim Jong Un won’t respond to feelers put forward by the ‘46th president.’  Kim’s sister, Kim Yo-Jong is urging a hardline stance against the ‘Biden administration’ seeing as how a stumbling Joe Biden on the campaign trail called her brother- the Supreme Ruler- a thug and that he wouldn’t deal with the North Koreans if they did not denuclearize.  Now, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ is puzzled as to why Kim won’t respond to him other than to demand he halt the WAR GAMES with South Korea.  Perhaps it’s this: the Iranians called Joe Biden a second-class idiot today, not even a first-class dimwit.  That sucks and yet, Joe is still giving the Iranians several billion dollars.  Gee whiz.   Meanwhile, former Bolivian President Jeanine Anez has entered prison to do a four-month stretch for supposedly trying to engineer a coup against socialist thug Evo Morales.
  64. 2021 Tuesday B: Border Disaster News- The ‘Biden administration’ announces plans to house at least 3,000 illegal alien brats in a downtown Dallas, Texas, convention center.  Incapable of stopping the invasion along our southern border, Biden officials are busing the illegals all over the country and dumping them out in the streets saying to community leaders, ‘it’s on you.’  Many communities run these illegal aliens out of town on rails.  We don’t want them; we won’t care for them.  Meanwhile, moderate (almost a RINO) Florida Senator Rick Scott has authored a bill that will provide amnesty to so-called DREAMers in exchange for funds to complete the border wall.  White House?  Crickets…
  65. 2021 Tuesday C:  Border Disaster News Pt. II- Joe Biden’s immigration plan does NOTHING to curb the illegal alien invasion.  (Note- he has NO plan.  Goldie).  Next, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas defends his crap-assed performance of taking care of illegal alien minors along the border.  His plan calls for them to be sardined together in worse conditions than anything President Trump ordered.  They sleep on cement floors, they get showers once a week, the food is shit, the babes are crying at night for their mothers, and this POS scumbag says he’s doing a ‘fantastic job.’  Impeach this SOB.  Regarding Secretary Mayorkas, this loser is passing the buck by saying, “We are repairing the system the last guy disbanded.”  Sure.  Speaking of immigration, leading House Dems say there’s a bleak outlook when it comes to passing a coherent immigration bill.  (Note- this is the ONLY policy you need- build the wall and deport them all.  Period.  Goldie).   In other ‘border news,’ 10 Iranian nationals have been arrested along the southern border.
  66. 2021 Tuesday D:   Border Disaster News Pt. III- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., becomes the first top-level Democrat to declare the travesty of the southern border to be a “MAJOR CRISIS.”  Thank you, senator, now do something to stop the invasion.  Meanwhile, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing everything he can to evade having to do something about the border catastrophe.’   Meanwhile, former New York state Congressman Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing whatever he can to deflect away from the predicament he created on the southern border by not stopping the tidal wave.’  Impeach Biden Now. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday E:  Political News Pt. I- House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, lets the Democrats have both barrels and then a reloaded both barrels over them trying to politicize the U.S. military, the National Guard, and federal law enforcement.  They are recruiting trannys, gays, and unfit people to be the frontline in defending our nation, even offering FREE sex-change surgeries for enlisted men, women, and ‘things.’[vii]  We are going down.  (Note- looks like ‘Groping Joe’ Biden is doing everything he can to HELP the Chi-Coms).   Next, people are asking at Day #56 of the Biden administration, WHEN is ‘President Biden’ going to address the American people?  The country’s citizens are growing worried that they have elected a vegetable to the highest job in the world.   We concur. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Political News Pt. II- The ‘Joe Biden tax plan’ continues facing increased pushback from the GOP as it’s a social-re-engineering plan, one that will transfer wealth all over the place while killing jobs, putting more people into the street, and destroying society.  Speaking of the Democrats, they claim to want to bring in Republican input for their ‘infrastructure plan’ (Note- their Green New Deal plan- Goldie) but so far have not met with Republicans.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is still trying to unseat Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district, a woman whose race was certified and who has been serving in the House since taking the oath on January 3, 2021.  Speaker Pelosi is trying to OVERTURN her lawful election.  We must stop Mumbles.   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing EVERYTHING he can to circumvent the U.S. Congress.’
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: My Pillow’s Mike Lindell is launching several countersuits against the crooked Dominion Voting Systems company out of Canada, accusing them of ‘racketeering’ as they try to intimidate him into silence.  We hope you get those scumbags, Mike, they have loads of explaining to do.   Next, President Donald J. Trump calls the Washington Post, aka WAPO, ‘an example of media travesty’ after it lied about the conversation, he held with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger earlier in the year.   Regarding the Peach State, a judge in Georgia says he may order unsealing of the absentee ballots so investigators into election fraud in 2020 can perform a REAL audit.
  70. 2021 Tuesday H:  Democratic Party News, Pt. I: Democrats in the U.S. Senate on the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee are holding hearings on ‘housing in America.’  We know there is a shortage of housing right now because of the pandemic’s halt on new home construction.  What the Democrats seek are multi-family home dwellings so they can force more people into living with one another which is wholly un-American.  Yet that is what they do, they seek to bring Section 8 housing into a neighborhood near you.  Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers are pushing back against Democrats by seeking to include natural gas and nuclear energy as part of our energy creation sources with which to augment unreliable renewable energy sources.  Democrats want wind and solar period.   Finally, Democrats are pushing Senate Dems to get rid of the filibuster which is putting pressure directly atop moderate Democrats like Joe Manchin, D-W. Va.  (Note- the RNC is planning a counter-media blitz against the Democrats’ blitz on HOW GREAT the Chi-Vi Relief Bill is).
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: Political Correctness News- Columbia University is going to put on six different graduation ceremonies- a) Native American; b) Asian; c) Latino; d) LGBTQIA+; e) gringos; and f) first generation students and low-income students.  Wow.  Martin Luther King Jr. would be rolling over in his grave.  For God’s Sake, people!  Meanwhile, Project Veritas released video of Facebook execs discussing how to avoid governmental oversight, rules, regulations, and what they deem to be interference.  Sadly, for Facebook, 48 states currently have monopoly lawsuits going against FB.  
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: U.S. ‘Enemies’ News- On his first trip to Asia, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Democrat, takes it to the Chi-Coms for their regional coercion of their neighbors.  Good for you but wait- don’t YOU have ties to the Chi-Coms, Secretary Blinken?  We believe you do.  This is all smoke and mirrors.  Next, a recent Gallup poll says that MORE Americans now view the Chi-Coms as a major threat following the lab-engineered pandemic they created and then released.   Meanwhile, the bastion of ‘freedom’- Russia- says it’s thinking of banning Facebook from their soil.
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: Popular Culture News- this year’s Grammy Awards were among the worst ever what with a drop from 18.7 million viewers last year to a pitiful 7.9 million this year.  If you like watching hoochie mamas singing about that ‘Wet Hot Pu**y,” then good for you but people can see slut-bags seven days a week walking down the street.   Next, the “Amityville Horror” killer Ronald De Feo Jr. died in the joint at age 69.  Elsewhere, after Sharon Osbourne exercises the chutzpah to defend Piers Morgan on “The Talk,” the show goes into hiatus because the black chick, Sheryl Underwood’s feelings were hurt.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo News- there is speculation that ‘seven Cuomo judges- will rescue him from being removed from office.  The investigation into “Killer Cuomo,” however continues as his accusers are undergoing depositions.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden won’t demand that his fellow groper “Killer Cuomo” be ejected from making COVID-19 calls to encourage people to rush out and get the vaccine.   Sexual deviates always stick together.
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom News- Little Gavin is now out there crowing that ‘if he gets a chance, he will appoint a black woman- ANY black woman to fill Senator Dianne Feinstein’s seat.’  We didn’t know that Senator Feinstein was going anywhere anytime soon.  Still, this is what liberals do when confronting the law, they begin promising to donate money to Planned Parenthood, wage war on the NRA, and do everything else liberals love.  Too little too late.   Newsom has awoken to the fact that he is probably going to lose his seat so he releases a commercial in which he blames HIS problems on: 1) the Far-Right; 2) QAnon; 3) Proud Boys; 4) Oath Keepers; 5) Donald J. Trump; 6) Newt Gingrich; 7) Mike Huckabee; 8) conspiracy theorists; and 9) everyone else he can blame HIS disasters upon and then some, i.e., white supremacists, racists, bigots, haters, and insurrectionists.   Michael Reagan says living in California is like in the Germany of the 1930s.  Could not have said it better ourselves.  Thanks, Mike.
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: The National Rifle Association seeks to delay the deposing of its board members as the bankruptcy case makes its way through the courts.  Meanwhile, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform says that ‘Joe Biden wants to raise tax rates higher than what the Chi-Coms have, especially on corporations, and in so doing will kill wages, destroy jobs, and eliminate retirement savings.’  He also said that ‘increasing utility rates is akin to raising the taxes although it’s not an official raising of taxes.’  By raising corporate taxes, it diminishes the return on investments which will destroy retirement programs.  The government also seeks to legalize marijuana across the country so that it can reap the tax dollars.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: National Guard troops from Guam visited the office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R- GA 14th congressional district, because she mentioned the name of the U.S. territory in a speech and referred to it as a ‘foreign nation.’[viii]  She blasted their ‘visit’ as little more than a political stunt.   Meanwhile, scientists are proposing to put a doomsday vault on the moon.   Next, ex-Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin wants George Floyd’s 2019 arrest released to the jury in his trial.   Meanwhile, New Mexico is advancing a bill that will allow assisted suicide for the terminally ill within their state.

  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: 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: 3,626,327 confirmed cases, 56,621 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for several days now).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 353,322 confirmed cases, 5,192 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wyoming, aka the Equality State: currently, they have 55,352 confirmed cases, 693 confirmed deaths, and 54,231 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 821,762 confirmed cases, 6,037 confirmed deaths, and 787,893 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Canada, the home of the Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Rush: 915,868 cases of the old Wuhan Meat Market Malady, 22,519 confirmed deaths and 861,832 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, what’s the point: communist nations ALWAYS lie- you know it and we know it.

  81. 2021 Tuesday S: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.856 per gallon, $3.558 in Hawaii, and $3.281 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,058,245,351,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: In some shocking news, a stockpile of commercial grade fireworks blew up in Ontario, California, killing two people.  The Ontario police chief said that officers were called on scene for another issue when the garage blew up killing the two and injuring others.  Next, Joe Biden’s handlers are establishing a commission with which to study packing the U.S. Supreme Court as well as other courts.  In other court news, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI, sent a new letter to the FBI demanding a FURTHER investigation into U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.   Senator Whitehouse- a partisan POS- says the FBI investigation back in 2018 was ‘flawed’ and that witness information went into the circular file.  What a scumbag.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Islamic jihadists attacked locals in Niger’s Tillaberi region killing at least 58 people and wounding countless others.   The people were returning home from a cattle market in Banibangou when the jihadists came racing up on motorcycles and began lighting the startled villagers up.  After they killed as many as they could and left the wounded to die, the reputed al-Qaida “B-team” then set local granaries ablaze in the hopes of causing famine throughout the region.  Time for the French Foreign Legion to arrive on scene and begin exterminating these Boko Haram-loving murderers, rapists, and thugs.
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: NEWS FLASH: In Atlanta, Georgia, 8 people are shot dead at a massage parlor, most of the dead being female staffers.  It appears that happy endings for the night were no more.  The suspect whose image and car were captured on security tape was apprehended more than 100 miles south of the city.  No one knows the motive yet; it could have been fraud, it could have been QAnon, it could have been someone gave the shooter the clap.  We will await further developments.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Canadian guitarist Robbie Robertson- the main songwriter of the Band- released his first self-titled album, “Robbie Robertson,” on October 27, 1987.  It is easy to visualize that Robertson was the guiding light behind the Band as his songwriting always rises to the top like cream atop milk.  Joining the legendary guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist are Tony Levin of King Crimson on bass, Manu Katché on drums, Daniel Lanois on guitars/vocals as well as guest appearances from Garth Hudson and Rick Danko of the Band, all of U2, and loads of other five-star musicians and performers.  This is a worthy addition to any record collection which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your growing collection in the format, condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.

[i] The Soviets would do what communists always do: march their prisoners in and give them lead to the back of the head.  Then, they haphazardly bury the corpses and leave it for others to find.  Russian scumbags.

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

[iii] We hope to share the music of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band at some point within the next 5-7 years.  Stick around for the glorious day when we do.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Heart within the next 15 years or so.  Stick around for the glorious, mind-altering day.

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

[vi] Not sure when we will promote the music of Van Halen but when we do, we will also present the music of Sammy Hagar so please stay tuned.

[vii] Jessie Jane Duff, GySgt. U.S.M.C. Retired says the purpose of the military is to break things and kill people, not to serve as some sort of laboratory for left-wing social scientists to transform our society into a freak show.  The U.S. Army is second-guessing its gender-neutral policies after record numbers of young women can’t cut the mustard (but they can always like the jar).  Instead of recognizing the differences between genders and working within that framework, the Pentagon is reducing standards for men so women can score better on their physical tests.  It sounds like it’s getting to be time to move somewhere else because an army of gays and trannys is not going to defend our nation.  Note- this is ALL Barack Hussein Obama’s fault- he’s the one who f**ked up the military.

[viii] Look, about ten years ago, Democratic Congressman Hank Johnson, Georgia, asked military leaders if MORE assets were sent to Guam would the island capsize and sink into the sea.  This moron STILL sits in Congress.  Whatever MTG said is nothing compared to this Rhodes scholar.

2017 Tuesday: Along the coastline of Zawiya, Libya, the bodies of 87 African migrants wash ashore. They were the lucky ones as ISIS was selling other Sub-Saharan Africans as slaves in various marketplaces.

  33. 1944 Sunday: Fighting in pockets around the Anzio beach head continues but not in the intensity it’s been over the past four days.  German troops are still trying to probe the Allied lines but are having no success.  The battle will stalemate for a while longer as Allied forces build up an amazing number for a breakout and the race for Rome.

  66. 2017 Tuesday: Along the coastline of Zawiya, Libya, the bodies of 87 African migrants wash ashore.  They were the lucky ones as ISIS was selling other Sub-Saharan Africans as slaves in various marketplaces.  Meanwhile, to the shock of Democrats and leftists, President Donald J. Trump authorizes the Department of Homeland Security to commence rounding up and deporting illegal aliens wherever they uncover them, rather like the Operation Wetback of the late 1940s and early to mid-1950s.   A government’s first obligation is to ITS people, not illegal aliens.
  67. 2018 Wednesday: Famed televangelist Billy Graham, a man who provided counseling and support to every president from Harry S. Truman to George W. Bush, passed away in his sleep at age 99.  Elsewhere, following the now infamous St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 in Tallahassee, Florida, gun control advocates, parents, teachers, students, and everyone else is demanding something be done to stop this stuff.  The shooter should never have been in school, but Obama era policies prevented educators from booting sickos and the police from behaving proactively rather reactively.  It is a horrible thing.  Meanwhile, students across the country stage walkouts in protest of such gun violence.
  68. 2019 Thursday: Multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Peter Tork, member of the Monkees[ix], passed away at age 77 on this date.  Meanwhile, a federal judge rules against U.S. Secretary of Labor Alex Acosta, accusing of him of having ‘broken the law’ back in 2008 when serial sexual abuser Jeffrey Epstein- good friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton, among others- when Acosta was the prosecutor in a sex case in which the wealthy business mogul was involved.  They gave the guy a sweetheart plea deal apparently.  You convict on what you can convict.  Epstein has been accused of mistreating numerous girls.
  69. 2020 Friday: On Fox News Channel, Democratic candidate Tom “Green Jeans” Steyer swears on the Bill Hemmer program that he ‘will be on the upcoming Tuesday night debate stage.’  He also promises that he is the only one who can defeat President Trump in November which is delusional.  His fellow Democrats want him and his best bud, “Tiny Mikey” Bloomberg as much as they want anal herpes.  We expect him either to drop out soon or go third party and contest for the Green Party (or Peace and Freedom Party) nomination.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are claiming that ‘Russia is going to help Trump steal the 2020 Election.’  Here we go again.  Question for Democrats: IF you so fear foreign involvement in U.S. presidential elections then why the f**k are you not demanding for ALL illegal aliens to be rounded up and deported immediately?  Finally, it looks like the jurors in the Harvey Weinstein multiple rape trial are going to find the POS guilty.  Elections have consequences, folks.  Had Hillary Rodham Clinton won in 2016, Harvey would still be raping young starlets.
  70. 2021 Sunday: Day 33 of the usurper Joe Biden Regime- will it ever end?  First, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden says he has ‘no plans to invite Russia to upcoming G 7 talks; we bet he would invite the Chi-Coms if the other world powers would allow him.  Next, Joe Biden is considering Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel, former mayor of Chicago to be his ambassador to Japan.  However, outrage over this pathetic POS is growing on both sides of the aisle.  Still, we bet he gets the job.  In other ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden news, noted author and China expert Gordon Chang says, ‘the Chi-Coms have no respect for their stooge in the White House.’  We agree. 
  71. 2021 Sunday A: In other Chi-Com news, former NSA official Matthew Pottinger says there’s ‘plenty of evidence linking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to both the Chi-Com military and to lax standards in the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which in our eyes, created the perfect storm of events to get Trump out of the White House.  Finally, the ‘Biden White House’ is talking to the Iranians, seeking to get detained Americans returned home.  (Probably going to require $1.5 billion in cash on pallets in the middle of the night, there, Joe, just like what you and Barack Obama did).
  72. 2021 Sunday B: New Mexico Democrat Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham finds herself in trouble, accused of using more $13,000 of the taxpayers’ money to buy groceries, alcohol, and on dry-cleaning bills.  Remove her from office.    Elsewhere, former White House adviser under President Donald J. Trump and immigration czar in the Trump administration- Stephen Miller- says, ‘Joe Biden’s immigration policy is madness.’  Speaking of this madness, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘Joe Biden is responsible for creating the crisis along the southern border.’  As if that’s not bad enough, Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security is dumping 25 illegal aliens per day into the San Diego, California, area as well into southern Texas in what appears to be a targeted dumping of unwanted illegal aliens who should be thrown back as soon as they are caught crossing the border.  And you don’t think the REPLACEMENT THEORY does not exist, that it’s another so-called ‘conspiracy theory.’  Bull crap.  Everything the liberals are doing, and which people recognize they’re doing, the scream “CONSPIRACY THEORY!”
  73. 2021 Sunday C: It’s official- President Donald J. Trump will be speaking at CPAC in Florida next week, his first speaking engagement since having the 2020 Presidential Election stolen from him (that’s right, I said it!).  Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-GA, says, ‘there’s no denying that the GOP belongs to Donald J. Trump.’  Period.   Meanwhile, Representative Ashley Hinson, R-IA, pushes back on the dimwit Bill Gates suggestion that Americans learn to eat synthetic beef.  Good.  Because anyone talking about ‘synthetic beef’ may as well be talking about ‘Soylent Green.’  Look for the movie.   
  74. 2021 Sunday D: Elsewhere, Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX, thanks ‘AOC for crossing the aisle and urging help to the suffering citizens of Texas.’   Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, says that ‘$60 billion already exists with which to reopen the nation’s schools.’  Why won’t the Dems use it?   Add to that the fact that Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said that ‘Joe Biden missed an opportunity to work with the GOP on the stimulus with which to help the American people, beset by the Chinese Virus.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday E: In Kentucky,  a black police officer is fired for having handed over the personal information on his fellow non-black police officers to Black Lives Matter communists.  Elsewhere, Camden County, Missouri, becomes the first Second Amendment sanctuary county in the state.  We want to see this spread to every freedom-loving part of the country.  Next, a NASA supply vessel on the way to the International Space Station bears the name Katherine Johnson named for one of the iconic mathematicians depicted in the film “Hidden Figures.”  She was the main black female whose calculations were spot on and enabled the United States to win the space race and to put men on the moon and to return them to Earth. 
  76. 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,277,677 confirmed cases, +373,840, 2,464,390, confirmed deaths, +8,321, and 62,783,718 confirmed recoveries, +272,053.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,325,091 confirmed cases, up 64,375 from yesterday’s reporting, 502,493 confirmed deaths, UP 1,660, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus weeks now.  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 moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 172,892 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  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.  Shame on you, ‘Usurper Joe,’ shame on you.
  77. 2021 Sunday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,527,454 confirmed cases, 49,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 336,819 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Minnesota: currently, they have 479,104 confirmed cases, 6,500 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 693,730 confirmed recoveries. 
  78. 2021 Sunday H: The Boy Scouts of America welcome their first class of female Eagle Scouts.  Next, United to stop flights on some Boeing 777 planes.   Meanwhile, since we no longer watch Saturday Night Live, we learn today from news sources that the comedy show won’t portray either feeble old Joe Biden or his VP Kamala Harris.  That figures.  Elsewhere, a new poll shows that tourism and the hospitality industries are going to have a slow rebound, one not expected to occur until sometime in the end of Kamala Harris,’ uh, Joe Biden’s first term in 2024. 
  79. 2022 Monday: Please, stick around for any updates…

  65. 2018 Saturday: The Israeli military shoots down an unmanned aerial vehicle that crossed into the country’s airspace.  Upon further inspection, it’s clear the UAV was manufactured in Iran, so the Israeli Air Force goes into action.  Crossing the border into Syria, Israeli warplanes attack Syrian and Iranian targets at the Tiyas Syrian air base in Homs Governate lighting them up with glee.  Of course, Damascus and Tehran express outrage and anger.  It is what it is.
  66. 2019 Sunday: The Catholic Church breathes a sigh of relief as an investigation into the U.S. Southern Baptist Church implicates 400 members with more than 700 victims.  Meanwhile, a study conducted around the world claims that insect populations worldwide are collapsing which could lead to a ‘catastrophic collapse of the world’s ecosystems,’ what with a 40% decline and a 30% on the endangered list.  Finally, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, Democrat, announces her presidential run.
  67. 2020 Monday: The great leader, Xi Jinping, slaps on a face mask and visits a hospital in Beijing visiting sick people.  He demands ‘more decisive measures’ to combat the virus he claims came out of the Wuhan wet market when in fact, it really came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  At the time of this writing, we are unclear as to whether the growing pandemic was created with purpose in the lab or is yet another freak of nature disease to emanate in communist China and then infects the rest of the world.   Meanwhile, Beijing’s sock puppet, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- the head of the World Health Organization- says that ‘foreign cases of COVID-19 could be the tip of the iceberg.’  What did YOU know and WHEN did YOU know it?
  68. 2021 Wednesday:  First, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, blasts the World Health Organization for doing what everyone expected it would do, namely, cover up for their masters in the Chinese Communist Party.  Dr. Tedros is a bought-and-paid-for, Third World ‘medical’ hack.  Speaking of which, a recent poll says that ‘one-third of Americans are skeptical of the Wuhan Virus vaccine.’  We sure the hell are.  Meanwhile, the FDA grants Eli Lilly the go ahead to begin using its combo Chi-Vi vaccine/antibody treatment in the war against the Chi-Com Virus running amok in the world.  Speaking of Chi-Coms, Connecticut police are investigating the shooting death of graduate student 26-year-old Kevin Jiang whose lifeless bullet-ridden corpse was discovered over the weekend.  
  69. 2021 Wednesday A: Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s plan to re-engage in the United Nations ‘Human Rights’ Commission is seen as little more than a hollow gesture by the fading-fast 46th president.  Meanwhile, Alabama has a bill pending that would prohibit hormone drug treatments for tranny kids.  We always say, send these kids to qualified psychiatrists so they can get their heads on straight instead of falling prey to liberal insanity.  Finally, the CDC endorses ‘double-masking’ (these people are obviously invested in companies manufacturing PPE); however, we recall when Dr. Tony Fauci said, ‘masks don’t work’ just as we recall him suggesting ‘everyone might have to wear goggles,’ just as we remember him telling an inquisitive reporter that it’s fine to meet people on Grindr and Tinder for casual sex hook-ups.  WTF, Dr. Fauci?
  70. 2021 Wednesday B: Stephen King is putting up $6.5 million to help young authors get published.  Next, former Colorado Republican Senator Cory Gardner is going to head a new GOP Super PAC with which to help the party win back the House and Senate in 2022 and beyond.   Meanwhile, Congressman Ed Buck calls out the Democrats for resisting a proposal with which ALL members of Congress would recite the Pledge of Allegiance before every panel meeting.  Of course, the Democrats won’t allow this being the Anti-American scumbags that they are.  Speaking of anti-Americanism, Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack of) are causing mayhem along the southern border as tens of thousands of illegal aliens try to storm into the country.  We encourage the disconnected president to begin laying in minefields to stop the invasion in its tracks.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate sets February 22-23 as the date for hearings for Joe Biden’s attorney general nominee, Merrick Garland.
  71. 2021 Wednesday C: NASA awards SpaceX a $332 million contract to build the infrastructure for a return to the lunar surface.  In other news, Fox News bozo Chris Wallace says, ‘the impeachment managers are really laying out a compelling case in the trial of former President Donald J. Trump.’  And you wonder why people NO longer watch Fox News.  Speaking of the ‘impeachment trial,’ the Dems are once again harnessing a major team of losers to prosecute the case against Donald Trump which is why we are supporting the National Republican Congressional Committee’s bid to beat 47 Democrats so as to reclaim the House in 2022.  Everyone knows Jaime Raskin is a moron as is Teddy Lieu, David Cicilline, and Joaquin Castro, among others.  Castro was babbling on about Trump’s claims of a ‘stolen election’ noting no Democrat would ever do that when we know defeated Anthony Brindisi in New York 22 was crying about Dominion Voting Systems fraud in his loss to Claudia Tenney.  Wah, wah, wah!
  72. 2021 Wednesday D: The CEO of Microsoft says that BIG TECH requires clearer laws as to what can and cannot be said online meaning ‘WHAT CAN WE CENSOR WITHOUT REPERCUSSIONS?’  Elsewhere, lowlife rocker Bruce Springsteen faces drunken driving charges in the Garden State.  Poor Bruce.  Elsewhere, right on time, a Georgia county launches a probe into President Donald J. Trump’s attempted election theft in the Peach State.  Wow.  Meanwhile, a judge denies Ghislaine Maxwell’s attorneys bid to keep an excerpt from a 2016 deposition sealed.   Next, officials in San Francisco and around the Bay Area are trying to figure out where a massive oil spill in the Bay originated.   Finally, people are shocked that Republican Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana voted with the Democrats and five other RINOs to move the impeachment trial against President Trump forward yesterday.  He’s a goner.  And Democrats should remember this: what goes around can come around and we expect to see Barack Hussein Obama impeached and his wife prevented from ever seeking office…
  73. 2021 Wednesday E: After Mark Cuban- owner of the NBA franchise the Dallas Mavericks- said that he would NO longer play the National Anthem prior to games in the country that made this scurrilous c**ksucker wealthy, the NBA said, “Yes you will.”  All teams will play the anthem before every game which is longstanding league policy.  Meanwhile, we learn that another leftwing POS- this one Kamala Harris- joked about killing both President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.  Newt Gingrich says the Democrats are making the case for Donald Trump in this exceedingly boring second impeachment which is good because people are growing angrier with these scumbag Democrats by the day. 
  74. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 107,166,785 confirmed cases, +523,266, 2,348,421, confirmed deaths, +17,582, and 59,908,386 confirmed recoveries, +358,991.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,485,502 confirmed cases, up 103,724 from yesterday’s reporting, 474,034 confirmed deaths, UP 3,374, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last two week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 144,639 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  75. 2021 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,441,427 confirmed cases, 44,995 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,531 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 327,397 confirmed cases, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Arizona: currently, they have 789,245 confirmed cases, 14,462 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 703,719 confirmed cases, 5,216 confirmed deaths, and 628,004 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Spain: 3,023,601 confirmed cases, 63,704 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.    
  76. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,437.80, UP 61.97 points (+0.20%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,972.53, DOWN 35.16 points (-0.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,909.88, DOWN 1.35 points (-0.35%).  The price of GOLD is $1,842.80 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $27.07 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.07%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,247.80 per troy oz, +0.90 (+0.07%) while the price of COPPER is $3.77 per pound, -0.01 (-0.19%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,366.50 per troy oz, -4.00 (-0.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $58.32 per barrel, -0.36 (-0.61%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000022 Bitcoin.
  77. 2021 Wednesday I: Rush Limbaugh’s staffers encourage his hundreds of millions of fans across the world to pray for a remission of his cancer and for a swift recovery.  All of us are praying for your health, Rush.  God be with you.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. tells Newsmax TV that the ‘Dems are trying to scare ‘outsiders’ away from Washington, D.C., and politics.’  Moving on, Roger Stone told Newsmax that CNN’s latest report is ‘Russian Witch Hunt 2.0.’  Elsewhere, Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, GOP, stands by his statement that the Capitol Hill Riots- in which Antifa and Black Lives Matter led the way with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s blessings- allegedly- were a hoax to blame Trump supporters.  We know what he’s saying- it was pre-planned and pre-engineered so as to coincide with the President’s speech on January 6 from the White House.  Evidence continues pointing in this direction which is WHY the Dems screech louder that what Republicans say are ALL LIES!  When the truth comes out, we know exactly where it’s going to lead…
  78. 2021 Wednesday J: As the Democrats got the impeachment three-ring circus underway, most Republican senators were once again, indifferent and/or immune to all the blubbering, crying, sniveling, snot-dripping BS the Dems spent all day making tens of millions of Americans sick.  It is an embarrassing freak show what with Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline talking about an “armed insurrection.’  Look, former Mafia mouthpiece, there were no weapons in the hands of the left-wing rioters.   Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, said the “Dems’ tears are not enough to sway anyone.’  Good for you, congressman.  Elsewhere, the CDC announces that those who are completely vaccinated against the Beijing Bat Bug do not need to quarantine.  Next, Joe Biden’s budget deficit through January is a whopping $735.7 billion.   Finally, former ICE bigwig Tom Homan says that ‘Joe Biden has made the entire nation into one big sanctuary nation.’  We’re telling you; people are going to push back against this tidal wave of illegals.
  79. 2021 Wednesday K: The Chi-Coms have got a Chi-Com lander in the atmosphere on Mars.  In a couple of months, the Chi-Coms will attempt to get it to the surface of the Red Planet where we hope it will blow up- watch it take COVID-19 to Mars!  Will they blame it on the Americans?  Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates have a similar robotic craft arriving on scene while the U.S. has another arriving soon.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden visited the Pentagon today to confer with Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin where they plotted strategy to save the planet from climate change, the Chi-Vi, and of course, RIGHT WING EXTREMISM.  Left-wing extremism, A-Okay.   Finally, the Biden administration has suspended indefinitely the ‘forced transfer’ of TikTok- the Chi-Com intelligence gathering social media ap to Walmart and Oracle in yet another tip-of-the-hat to Beijing.
  80. 2021 Wednesday L: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3533 with a pot of $19 million on the line: 08, 10, 19, 22, 41, and Mega 15.  Out of 102,034 winning tickets, the highest winners were 11 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,668 apiece.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #819 with a pot of $42 million on the line: 15, 39, 58, 63, 67, and Powerball 07.  Out of 56,277 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $26,687.
  81. 2021 Wednesday M: Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds drops all COVID-19 restrictions leaving it up to her citizens to behave responsibly.  Next, in a clear sign that California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is on the ropes became evident when enfeebled old ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden commented on the GREAT JOB this POS bum is doing.  Go, Joe, go!  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe’,  he says he is as determined as ever to get Julian Assange extradited to the United States so he can go on trial.  Also, since Joe Biden took the terrorist Houthi rebels off the terrorist watch list, the Houthis attack a Saudi airport using Iranian drones causing mayhem and destruction.  Next, New York state AG Leticia James is mad at the NRA for having declared bankruptcy so that it can relocate to Texas.  Oh, boohoo.  Finally, several state GOP attorneys general are joining together to go after Joe Biden and his war on domestic energy production, namely, his closure of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
  82. 2022 Thursday: Amigos, nos esforzamos por no dar rodeos, por lo que proclamamos que en este blog mundialmente conocido encontrarán “sólo los hechos” y la “verdad sin ambages”.  Quédate para ver los hechos del día…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

It is not like Fotheringay was around for a long time, yet, since Sandy Denny was in the guiding light behind the group, they recorded loads of music.  Sadly, Sandy died young and hubby Trevor Lucas followed a couple of decades later.  Still, record companies keep music stuffed away in the vaults so they decided, let’s combine everything together, add the unreleased material and boom-bam, we have a final (or so we might think) offering entitled, “Nothing More- the Collected Fotheringay,” which came out on March 27, 2015.  It is difficult to locate this collection but there’s always Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, and perhaps even overseas sites such as Amazon UK.  Seek it out and you will be glad you did should you locate it because Sandy had an angelic voice, and her songwriting skills were mesmerizing.  You will be glad you found this one if you do because it is delightful.

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

Thursday, February 10, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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…


[i] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[ii] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[iv] 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.

[v] Could it be that Obama set this government agency up so it could engineer the ‘Russia collusion scam’ less than a year later.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

39. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 08, 2022, UPDATE A

The second gentleman was whisked away from a Black History Month event due to a bomb threat. Amigos, I don’t know about you, but this is getting ridículo. I didn’t used to be suspicious, but this seems too farfetched to be true. It’s like we are being gaslighted every single day. ¿Qué demonios está pasando aquí?

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 279

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-EIGHTY-FOUR OF THE BIDEN REGIME

39. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 08, 2022, UPDATE A:

The second gentleman was whisked away from a Black History Month event due to a bomb threat.  Amigos, I don’t know about you, but this is getting ridículo.  I didn’t used to be suspicious, but this seems too farfetched to be true.  It’s like we are being gaslighted every single day.  ¿Qué demonios está pasando aquí?

  1. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 400,303,628 confirmed cases, +2,532,204, 5,781,245 confirmed deaths, +14,276 and 320,577,208 confirmed recoveries, +3,415,023. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 78,540,922 confirmed cases, UP 292,065 from yesterday’s reporting, 932,369 confirmed deaths, UP +4,233,[i] and 48,802,193 confirmed recoveries, UP 619,842 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 482,985 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 119,733 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 384 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Tuesday 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: 8,684,337 confirmed cases, 81,859 confirmed deaths, and 8,602,478 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it- same numbers by the way).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,744,225 confirmed cases, 66,465 confirmed deaths, and 3,716,816 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 227,817 confirmed cases, 1,226 confirmed deaths, and 226,591 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,382,889 confirmed cases, 11,139 confirmed deaths, and 1,371,750 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Mississippi: they have 770,552 confirmed cases, 11,378 confirmed deaths, and 619,944 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,286,280 confirmed cases, 9,303 confirmed deaths, and 2,946,037 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Gabon, 142nd country on the list: 47,362 cases of the virus, 302 confirmed death and 43,264 confirmed recoveries.[iv]  Note- Gabon is one of the nations that uses hydroxychloroquine to combat malaria and look at how low their case numbers are and even more importantly, their death rates due to the Chi-Vi.                    
  5. 2022 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,462.78, UP 371.65 points (+1.06%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,194.45 UP 178.79 points (+1.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,521.54, UP 37.67 points (+0.84%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $89.71 per barrel, +0.35 (+0.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,826.60 per troy oz., -1.20 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $23.21 per troy ounce, +0.01 (+0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,030.30 per troy oz, -6.00 (-0.58%) while the price of COPPER is $4.47 per pound, +0.01 (+0.15%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,241.23 per troy oz., -21.29 (-0.94%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,925.00 per troy oz., +75.00 (+0.45%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,285,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,225.00 per USD/T, +93.00 (+2.97%). The price of ZINC is $3,640.00 per troy oz., +15.00 (+0.41%).   The price of COCOA is $2,669.00 per USD/T, +45.00 (+1.71%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,159.90 USD 1,000 board feet +45.00 (+4.04%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.61.    In Cuban Peso, one greenback equals 24.00 and in Czech Koruna, a buck equals 21.23 and in Danish Krone, one dollar equals 6.52 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.681 per gallon, $3.469 in Florida, $4.418 in Hawaii, and $3.953 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: U.S. Virgin Islands- $3.279.  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 120th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Hungary: $5.872 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,019,635,090,981 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Poland the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Tuesday F:  Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border for the past 312 days and sadly, it’s been 226 days since she showed up to do her job.  ¿Qué demonios, amigos míos?  Okay, mis amigos, the cost of caring for these illegal aliens today is a horrifying $2,805,232,977.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders for 404 days is $41,503,438,319.  Next, the number of illegals who have crossed the southern border this year stands at: 318,761.  Fourth and final, here is the number- the conservative low estimate- of illegal aliens living in the country as we speak: 42,512,393.  Note, as astute scholars, the chefs at the AICPENDBLOG.COM contend we have between 85 million to 125 million illegal aliens living within our country.  This is simply appalling.
  8. 2022 Tuesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- In an effort to stop Russian ‘aggression’ in Ukraine, the first installment of U.S. troops arrives in Romania.  Speaking of the Russians, little Emanuel Macron- after dropping to his knees before Vladimir Putin in yesterday’s meeting- says he is ready to work with the Kremlin on addressing Russia’s security issues.  The Kremlin denies Western claims that President Vladimir Putin promised NO military exercises near Ukraine.   Next, six Russian warships are now conducting naval exercises in the Black Sea.
  9. 2022 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II- Canada’s beleaguered capital city of Ottawa is calling on BIG TECH to help them stymie the evil truckers who won’t vacate the capital even at the point of freezing to death in their cabs because the Trudeau regime is confiscating fuel and arresting those trying to get it to the truckers.[xi]  They want BIG TECH to place a blackout on the entire proceedings because to us it’s clear that a Canadian-style Tiananmen Square massacre is in the offing.  Perhaps Canadian military and law enforcement will join the truckers rather than continue service to a corrupt, evil regime?  We can only hope.  Still, the Canadian truckers have closed off a bridge between their country and the United States.
  10. 2022 Tuesday I: Health and Medical Alerts- A new report says that the opioid epidemic is costing the United States $1 trillion per year.  Yet, Joe Biden wants to spend $30 million handing out drug paraphernalia to addicts in the U.S.   Dr. Ashish Jha says the ‘United States is at the tail’s end of the Omicron surge of the Chi-Vi.’
  11. 2022 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- It must be an Election Year and the voters are pissed off: California is going to lift its indoor mask mandate for the fully vaccinated (the unvaccinated must sew a yellow star onto their clothing, yeah?) beginning February 15, while the state of Oregon will lift its mask mandate by March 31.   New Jersey (March 07) and Delaware (March 31) also announced that they would lift their mandates, too.[xii]  Meanwhile, in crumbling New York City, thousands of anti-vaccine mandate protesters filled the streets demanding an end to forced vaccinations.  The dope-smoking freshman Mayor Eric “Sleazebag” Adams was nowhere to be seen.  Prick.
  12. 2022 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II- Thanks to Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom’s and Los Angeles Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti’s stupidity, 4,000 L.A. County Sheriff’s Department personnel are facing termination because they won’t submit to these STUPID vaccine mandates.   Next, a new poll says that ‘America is divided on how to LIVE WITH COVID-19.’  In other news, Congresswoman Mary Miller, R-IL 15th congressional district, has authored a new bill that will STRIP funding from schools with forced mask mandates in place.  Excellent.
  13. 2022 Tuesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $51.70 (2) AstraZeneca: $56.65 (3) Merck & Company: $76.92 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $171.51 (5) Novavax: $83.45 (6) BioNTech: $159.60 (7) Moderna: $153.31.
  14. 2022 Tuesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $95.07 (2) General Dynamics: $214.45 (3) Boeing: $213.27 (4) Lockheed Martin: $396.04 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $ 379.32.
  15. 2022 Tuesday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $27.35 (2) DuPont: $80.13 (3) Honeywell: $194.56 (4) 3M: $162.41 (5) Teijen: $1,426.00.
  16. 2022 Tuesday O: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $61.71 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $31.32 (3) Beyond Meat: $59.90.
  17. 2022 Tuesday P: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $138.00 (2) Lowe’s: $231.53 (3) Home Depot: $361.56 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $521.15 (5) Amazon: $3,228.27.
  18. 2022 Tuesday Q: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump says that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is the sole person responsible for the events of January 06, 2021.  He sought to deploy as many as 10,000 troops to the streets of Washington, D.C. on that day but she is the one who nixed his offer.  What does this tell YOU?   Next, President Donald J. Trump offered Joe Rogan some advice: STOP APOLOGIZING to the WOKE MOB, Joe.  Enough is enough.  Be a man.  Grow a pair.  Pull up your big boy pants and tell the Cancel Culture mob to go f**k itself.[xiii]   Moving on, the 45th president endorses South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem for re-election.  Finally, President Trump said of Joe Biden’s threat to close the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline from Russia to Germany via the Baltic Sea is that ‘Joe Biden is the reason the pipeline is operational now.’
  19. 2022 Tuesday R: Joe Biden News I- Joe Biden proclaims that he ‘will stop the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from Russia to Germany via the Baltic Sea if that no-good Vladimir Putin invades Ukraine.  Sure, Joe, sure.  Whatever you say.  Oh, Joe Biden claims to be ‘consulting his folders’ over his upcoming, impending pick for the U.S. Supreme Court.  Next, Joe Biden is angry at the Florida GOP over its new “Don’t Say Gay” bill.   Homos in the Sunshine State claim this new bill would eradicate school lessons on Baron Von Steuben and other ‘brave gay heroes of U.S. history.’  Que se jodan estos maricones de mierda.
  20. 2022 Tuesday S: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- As the day goes on, Joe Biden continues receiving incoming over his $30 million plan as part of the upcoming HHS bill over his ‘equity plan’ of providing free crack pipes and other drug paraphernalia to addicts and users.  Perhaps crack-smoking first son, Hunter Biden, told his pop that he is losing the ‘crackhead vote.’  Joe, can’t black crackheads afford to buy their own crackpipes or are they incapable of doing this, too, just as they are- according to YOU- incapable of finding attorneys and accountants, and all the other things that YOU claim they are incapable of doing?  WTF is wrong with you, you racist bastard?   (The HHS euphemistically calls the crackpipes ‘smoking kits.’  Looks like NO COLA for seniors in the near future).[xiv]
  21. 2022 Tuesday T: Joe Biden Regime News I- We are unclear as to WHY this is happening, but the Internal Revenue Service is halting its demand for the use of facial recognition software for all online use of the IRS website.  Could it be there was too much pushback against this authoritarian bullshit?  The jury is out.  Meanwhile, after being outed yesterday for behaving like a dick to his subordinates, Joe Biden’s top science adviser- a Cabinet-level position- handed in his resignation letter.  He claims the regime’s head did not order him to do this; no, he took it upon himself to do the ‘right things.’  Sure.  Right.
  22. 2022 Tuesday U: Joe Biden Regime News II- White House mob mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- adorned with freshly dyed Bozo-the-Clown-like hair- said of her boss, Joe Biden that ‘he’s always supported schools making their own choices when it comes to mandating masks or not.’  Whoa.   Next, the Biden regime is pushing their Chi-Com bosses to buy more U.S. agricultural products as they promised when President Donald J. Trump was in the White House.  Apparently, the communists have reneged.  Who would ever have thought they would do something as scurrilous as that?   (No- what the Chi-Coms are doing is buying up as much American farmland and food production companies as they possibly can).
  23. 2022 Tuesday V: Joe Biden Regime News III- As an Iranian-American goes on trial in Tehran for espionage charges, Joe Biden is under pressure to apply his own pressure to the Iranian scum.  He won’t.   As if this isn’t embarrassing enough, the IRNA- the Iranian News Agency- says that Presidents Donald J. Trump and drooling Joe Biden are responsible for damaging the United States’ reputation abroad.  Wow.  Next, in something we believe could be ‘FAKE NEWS,’ apparently the U.S. has approved the sale of Patriot missile batteries to the Republic of China, aka Taiwan.  Amigos, I truly do not believe that Joe Biden would cross his ‘old friend’- Chi-Com chairman Xi Jinping- by selling Patriot missiles to FREE CHINA- the ONLY CHINA.  The MSS would cut off all funding to the corrupt Biden Family in a nuclear minute.
  24. 2022 Tuesday W: Joe Biden Regime News IV- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has issued a new warning on- get this- DOMESTIC TERRORISM.  Other than Black Lives Matter scum and Antifa c**ksuckers, we don’t see any ‘domestic terrorism,’ Mr. Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.  Will you please provide us the appropriate links with which we can investigate this domestic terrorism?  Thank you.  In other strange news, Doug Emhoff- Kamala Harris’ squeeze- was whisked out of a Black History Month event due to ‘security concerns’ (someone called in a ‘bomb threat.  Another false flag operation?  Or so we think).  In other news, the National Archives DENY the raid on Mar-a-Lago in Florida to seize President Donald J. Trump’s presidential records.  Finally, a federal agency refused to answer reporters’ questions about a grant to Wuhan Institute of Virology-affiliated EcoHealth Alliance.
  25. 2022 Tuesday X: Political News I- House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, pointed out the hard truth today: the left uses private businesses to crush free speech.  Next, always a RINO, former UN ambassador Nikki Haley says she believes that Vice President Mike Pence did what he thought was the right thing to do on January 06, 2021.  Uh, okay.   Next, Senator Bill Hagerty, R-TN, has introduced a bill that will stop the mandated reporting of all transactions of $600 or more to the Internal Revenue Service.  Meanwhile, Newsweek claims that ALL Republican senators are going to condemn the censure of House RINOs Congresswoman “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, WY At-Large congressional district, and Congressman Adam “The C**t” Kinzinger, IL 16th congressional district.  Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, continues claiming that January 06, 2021, was a ‘violent insurrection.’  ¿Qué le pasa a este culo de caballo?  No es de extrañar que los republicanos conservadores odien a este perdedor.
  26. 2022 Tuesday Y: Political News II- We learned today that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is a hypocrite.  Say what?  The globally-revered ‘climate warrior’ spent more than $500,000 of U.S. taxpayer monies for private jet flights in 2021.  She spent $437,000 outright for private, luxury travel as well as two payments of $67,000 each to another company for private flights.  Other congressmen-and-women fly the friendly airways, why the hell can’t you, Madam Speaker?  Regarding “Mumbles,” former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-GA 6th congressional district, said of Nancy Pelosi that she ‘runs things like a dictator.’
  27. 2022 Tuesday Z: Political News III- As cracks appear between President Donald J. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence appear, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says he will take ‘no sides’ in the differences between the two.   Elsewhere, a trembling Peach State prosecutor who claims President Donald J. Trump has placed his life in danger says the 45th president is NO protected by presidential immunity.  Uh, oh.  Speaking of the Peach State, Hershel Walker said to residents of the state to ‘vote for what’s best, not for a single mindset.’  (The former NFL star and all-around good guy is running to unseat POS Senator Raphael Warnock in November).
  28. 2022 Tuesday AA: Political News IV- Congressman Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, has put forth a bill that will protect medical privacy within the U.S. military.   Congressman Troy Nehls, R-TX 22nd congressional district, reported today that the Capitol Hill Police Department have spied on him.  They have entered his congressional office, claiming the door was ‘open,’ questioned his staffers, took photos, and then left with NO explanations whatsoever.  Wow.  The Joestapo is alive and well, mis amigos
  29. 2022 Tuesday BB: Political News V- Governor Larry “The Toad” Hogan, RINO-MD, says he ‘won’t be running for the U.S. Senate in his state.’   Smart move, you never could have won.  Next, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the “RNC was correct in censuring ‘Lyin’ Liz’ Cheney and Adam “The C**t” Kinzinger.  God bless you.  Meanwhile, Congressman Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should NOT respond REACTIVELY to Russia.’  What the congressman is saying is Joe, do something to STOP any impending Russian invasion of Ukraine.  (He won’t).
  30. 2022 Tuesday CC: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News- Vermonters want to amend their state’s constitution so that abortion is available to everyone within the borders of their state right up to the moment of birth and once the squalling baby is lying kicking and screaming on the delivery table.  Qué panda de malvados.
  31. 2022 Tuesday DD: Big Tech News- NBC is set to suffer the lowest ratings for any televised Olympic Games ever as the ‘genocide Olympics’ are turning off legions of sports-lovers.  We must stop awarding totalitarian regimes with Olympic Games.  Enough is enough.  NBC says that Leslie Jones can continue commenting on social media her views on these shyster games.   In other news, sports commentator Mike Tirico is coming home early from the Chi-Com Winter Olympics due to him saying something the ‘genocide Olympics.’  The guy just wants to come home in time for the Super Bowl.   It’s as simple as that.  In other BIG TECH news, Mayor Eric Adams, DS-NYC, wants to expand the use of facial recognition software throughout the city.  Wow.   Finally, the estates of Robin Williams and George Carlin are suing Pandora.
  32. 2022 Tuesday EE: Sports News I- The more we see of the Chi-Com Olympics, the more we believe the North Koreans could have put on a better Olympic Games.  People are skiing down gravel pathways, snowboarders are jumping around shuttered nuclear power plants.  What the hell is going on in this shit-hole country?  Communist China is a sham country and it’s time the freedom-loving people of Taiwan retake the mainland and free the long-suffering Chinese people from this communist FOURTH WORLD COUNTRY.[xv]
  33. 2022 Tuesday FF: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1736 what with a $31 million jackpot on the line: 01, 17, 20, 52, 54, and Mega 02.  Out of 50,316 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers but nothing else for a prize of $433 apiece.

ENDNOTES:

[i] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xi] Speaking of this black face pansy, he is mad at the Republicans in the U.S. for supporting the truckers.  Mr. Prime Minister, we are still pissed off at you for having helped the Chi-Coms, the Dems, and the RINOs at overthrowing President Donald J. Trump in 2020.  The American people are angry with you, you little piece of dog shit.  Many believe this to be KARMA.

[xii] Some believe that perhaps the Dems want to see Chi-Vi numbers to begin skyrocketing once again so by November, they can force everyone back into mail-in voting.

[xiii] Speaking of Joe Rogan, Dr. Robert Malone- the inventor of mRNA vaccines- says the left’s anger with Joe Rogan is ‘deeper than meets the eye.’  The problem with Joe Rogan, according to Dr. Malone, is that he captures MILLIONS of young listeners.  The left knows that if you capture them young, you generally own them for life.

[xiv] Folks, we must look into the company or companies manufacturing the crackpipes as it appears the Dems are investing in these companies as otherwise, why would they say stupid-assed shit like this?  It makes no frigging sense, mis amigos. 

[xv] Speaking of these evil Chi-Coms, Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says that ‘Americans understand U.S. businesses are drunk on Chi-Com cash.’ 

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  53. 1999 Friday: Paris prosecutors announced the end of the investigation into the accident that killed Britain’s Princess Diana along with two other people.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate delivered subpoenas for Monica Lewinsky and two presidential advisors for private, videotaped testimony in the impeachment trial of President William Jefferson Clinton.
  54. 2002 Tuesday: In his state of the union address, President George W. Bush likens Iraq, Iran, and North Korea as the “Axis of Evil.”
  55. 2008 Tuesday: As the U.S. continues suffering from financial crises as the Great Recession continues overshadowing electoral politics, the House of Representatives passes a $146 billion stimulus packaged designed to get the economy jumpstarted. 
  56. 2011 Saturday: Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak appoints Omar Suleiman, vice president, the first office existing under the president for the first time in 30 years.
  57. 2012 Sunday: French President Nicolas Sarkozy presents an economic reform package that increases taxes and proposes a new tax on financial transactions.  Elsewhere, following a clash with Sudanese government forces, members of the Northern Sudan People’s Liberation Movement capture close to 30 Chi-Com ‘workers’ as well as some government troops.
  58. 2012 Sunday A: As the U.S. presidential race proceeds, former Governor Mitt Romney lights up former House Speaker Newt Gingrich over his House ethics record.  Clearly a favorite of many, Gingrich is under constant assault by the wimpy former Massachusetts governor, a man who will eventually win the nomination and lose to President Obama in November.
  59. 2013 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms Senator John F. Kerry to become the next secretary of state, replacing Hillary Clinton.  Everyone thought Mrs. Clinton was the worst U.S. secretary of state but the machinations and failures of the dolt following her made her appear as a blooming genius what with her Russian ‘reset button.’
  60. 2014 Wednesday: Brainy History reports that Shanghai and Hong Kong halt live poultry sales after the authorities report a third death resulting from to the H7N9 bird flu in Hong Kong; China has reported 19 deaths and 96 infections from the bird flu at the beginning of 2014.
  61. 2015 Thursday: Despite finding no wreckage to date, Malaysian officials announce that the March 2014 disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 is being ruled an accident; the ruling lets families of the missing passengers seek compensation for the tragedy.
  62. 2016 Friday: Hillary Clinton- running for the Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nomination- is still dogged by her email controversy.  The federal government announces that 22 emails discovered on her private email server in her home contained sensitive, classified information.  Oh, well, nothing happens to her.
  63. 2017 Sunday: In Orlando, Florida, a city hoping for an NFL team of its own, the lowest scoring Pro Bowl since 1998 occurs what with the AFC beating the NFC by a score of 20-13.  The NFC was driving in the final possession of regulation when Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins throws an interception.  Meanwhile, in Canada, a gunman enters a mosque in Quebec during evening prayers and lights up the people gathered there, killing at least five people and wounding others.  Police immediately go out looking for the shooter, eventually arrest two people, and let one go.  The other one is in custody.  Normally, things such as this don’t happen in ‘gun free Canada.’
  64. 2018 Monday:  The Deputy Director of the FBI- the corrupt and anti-Trumper Andrew McCabe resigns his post when in fact the 45th president fired his crooked ass.  Like his former boss, James Comey, he was in neck deep in the coup against President Trump and had to go.
  65. 2019 Tuesday: As things continue going south in Venezuela (no pun intended), the government of that authoritarian country seizes the bank accounts and properties of Juan Guaidó and prohibit him from leaving the country.  It’s tit for tat. Meanwhile, the U.S. hands over frozen Venezuelan assets to the true winner of election, Guaidó.  Meanwhile, in yet another dagger driven into President Trump by members of his administration, DNI Dan Coats contradicts his boss on North Korea, Iran, and ISIS.  ‘North Korea will never denuclearize,’ Iran is a fine country and ‘not working towards the bomb,’ and ISIS is ‘not on the run but still strong as ever.’  Wow.
  66. 2020 Wednesday: The first day of questions posed by Senate ‘jurors’ in the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump occurs.  The questions go to the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court- the Honorable John Roberts- who then directs counsels on either side to answer them.  This is a horribly boring period of this sham trial.  Meanwhile, the deadly coronavirus emanating out of communist China continues infecting and killing people throughout Asia and spreads to the United States.  Thank you, China, is this YOUR way of getting back at the Trump trade deal you had to sign?
  67. 2021 Friday: DAY TEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what’s going on today.  First of all, the Biden regime is deriding the 45th president’s COVID-19 relief plan while cannibalizing as much of it as it possibly can.  Good old ‘Plagiarist Joe.’  Next, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, slams House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s constant demonization of the Republican Party.  He warns her it must stop.  Good luck with that.  Senile old Nancy is not always cognizant of what she is doing.  Moving on, Representative Matt Gaetz urges House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, to hold a hearing on Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, as a leader in the House.  The woman has plummeted like a turd to the bottom of the pond once she voted to impeach former President Donald Trump.  For some inexplicable reason, Newsmax reports that Congress’ approval rating has jumped 10 percent but from what?  Bottom-of-the-barrel numbers.
  68. 2021 Friday A: The United Kingdom causes rancor with the Chi-Coms when the Brits offer the citizens of Hong Kong a pathway to British citizenship.  Wah, wah, wah, Chi-Coms.  STFU.  Meanwhile, the FBI says the pipe bombs ‘discovered’ at the RNC and DNC on January 6, 2021, the day the Antifa-led mob stormed Capitol Hill and overran it and its law enforcement like pot heads rampaging through a Krispy-Kreme donut shop, were planted the previous night.  The timeline also shows that the Capitol Hill Riots with the Antifa and BLM False Flag operation was planned long in advance, so President Trump bears NO responsibility for any of it.  Senator Dick Durbin- censure not looking so bad now, is it?  POS.  Speaking of drugs, Joe Biden is ending the Trump era program to combat the opioid epidemic.  Guess old Joe wants the Chi-Coms to make money off their illicit drug trade once again.  Thanks, Joe.  And people wonder why we say, “HE’S NOT OUR PRESIDENT.”  Speaking of Joe, he’s now staffing a commission to review the U.S. Supreme Court which means he is looking into PACKING IT. 
  69. 2021 Friday B: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 101,981,446 confirmed cases, +610,190, 2,203,696, confirmed deaths, +16,037, and 56,302,010 confirmed recoveries (lower than reported last week), +377,525.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 26,156,392 confirmed cases, up 177,254 from yesterday’s reporting, 440,880 confirmed deaths, UP 4,271, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as the past five days or so.
  70. 2021 Friday C: 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: 3,272,349 confirmed cases, 39,578 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 407 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 312,042 confirmed cases, 4,328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Puerto Rico- currently, they have 126,156 confirmed cases, 1,801 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 633,991 confirmed cases, 4,700 confirmed deaths, and 558,249 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the China Virus, the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine is 66-percent effective.  They are seeking FDA approval for emergency use of their product.
  71. 2021 Friday D: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,378 cases, +52, 4,636 confirmed deaths, and 82,940 confirmed recoveries, +70.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Insect-eating scum. 
  72. 2021 Friday E:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,982.62, DOWN 620.74 points (-2.03%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,070.69, DOWN 266.46 points (-2.00%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,417.24, DOWN 73.14 points (-1.93%). We are beginning to think Joe Biden is the Antichrist.  The price of GOLD is $1,845.90 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $27.06 per troy ounce, +0.146 (+0.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,079.80 per troy oz, +0.60 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.44%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,208.40 per troy oz, -113.90 (-4.90%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.14 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.11%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000029 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.75 Russian rubles.   
  73. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1629: 04, 44, 58, 59, 70, and Mega 03.  With a pot of $25 million, out of 64,781 winning tickets, the highest winner 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $500 apiece.   Meanwhile, Hilton Valentine- original guitarist of the British invasion band the Animals[v] died at his home in Wallingford, Connecticut, on this date from unspecified causes at age 77.  See you on the other side, Hilton!  
  74. 2022 Saturday: Everyone knows the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release from guitar legend Richard Thompson was a four-CD box set: “Walking on a Wire” (August 26, 2009).  This colossal collection is a glorious collection of the guitar-slinger’s repertoire from the years.  One finds a nearly 60-page booklet that goes into great detail about the life and times of this phenomenal artist and priced at less than seventy-five bucks, what the heck can you lose?  If you have yet to introduce the music of this lesser-known guitar virtuosos, well this is a glorious (and economical) way in which one can do it.  We hope you rush out to your nearest seller of classic rock music and add it to your collection.  You will be extremely glad you did, that we guarantee.

We applaud the Canadian truckers for their courage in fighting for freedom. However, when autocrats fear losing power, events such as Tiananmen Square can and do occur. Will that POS Justin Trudeau send out the tanks when the convoys converge on Ottawa? Stay tuned…

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-SEVENTY-FOUR OF THE BIDEN REGIME

28. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JANUARY 28, 2022, UPDATE A:

We applaud the Canadian truckers for their courage fighting for freedom.  However, when autocrats fear losing power, events such as Tiananmen Square can occur.  Will that POS Justin Trudeau send out the tanks when the convoys converge on Ottawa?  Stay tuned…

  1. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 369,990,078 confirmed cases, +3,295,969, 5,666,669 confirmed deaths, +10,027 and 292,254,866 confirmed recoveries, +2,484,469. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 75,126,946 confirmed cases, UP 431,613 from yesterday’s reporting, 905,065 confirmed deaths, UP +2,925,[i] and 45,758,190 confirmed recoveries, UP 143,978. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 455,781 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 92,429 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 373 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 7,919,990 confirmed cases, 79,827 confirmed deaths, and 7,840,163 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,526,813 confirmed cases, 64,640 confirmed deaths, and 3,673,205 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 213,174 confirmed cases, 1,164 confirmed deaths, and 212,010 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,266,253 confirmed cases, 10,669 confirmed deaths, and 377,753 confirmed recoveries (SAME NUMBERS).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Missouri: they have 1,314,435 confirmed cases, 17,111 confirmed deaths, and 846,142 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 2,705,103 confirmed cases, 8,599 confirmed deaths, and 2,158,276 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Iceland, 131st country on the list: 64,486 cases of the virus, 46 confirmed death and 846,142 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                 
  5. 2022 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,725.47, UP 564.69 points (+0.021%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,770.57 UP 417.79 points (+3.13%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,431.85, UP 105.34 points (+2.43%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $87.29 per barrel, +0.68 (+0.79%).  The price of GOLD is $1,790.10 per troy oz., -3.00 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $22.49 per troy ounce, -0.19 (-0.82%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,011.60 per troy oz, -10.20 (-0.01%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, -0.10 (-2.16%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,376.93 per troy oz., +0.83 (+0.03%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,800.00 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,285,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,059.00 per USD/T, -39.50 (-1.27%). The price of ZINC is $3,626.00 per troy oz., -4.50 (-0.12%).   The price of COCOA is $2,494.00 per USD/T, +43.00 (+1.75%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,024.90 USD 1,000 board feet +30.00 (+3.02%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.36 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.90 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.79.    In Angolan Kwanza, one greenback equals 529.00 and in Armenian Dram, a buck equals 481.55 and in Aruban Florin, one dollar equals 1.78 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 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 $4.637 per gallon, $3.345 in Florida, $4.389 in Hawaii, and $3.955 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: South Dakota- $3.223.  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 108th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Cape Verde: $5.207 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,883,756,902,663 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Saudi Arabia 1 the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Senator Rick Scott, R-Florida, is blasting the Biden regime over its clandestine, in the dead-of-night resettling of illegal aliens around the country via flying them into smaller airports that close down at night.  Next, today is Day No. 302 for ‘Border Czar’ Kamala Harris to be in charge of the border and Day No. 216 since she showed up to do a photo op.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the illegal aliens for 28 days: $2,014,013,420.  Next, here is the cost of caring for these illegal alien scumbags for 393 days: $407,122,318,762.  Next, here is the number of illegals who have crossed into the United States this year: 228,855.  Fourth and final, here is the number of illegals estimated to be in the United States: 42,423,047.  Note- since the first inception of this blog back in 2009, we estimated at that time, the numbers of illegal trashing the country at between 35-50 million whereas now, we have revised that estimate upward of 85-125 million thanks to the incredible damage President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is doing to the country.  And they claim the Replacement Theory does not exist.  Folks, it’s alive and well and at work as we speak. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  8. 2022 Friday G: Illegal Aliens-Invaders-and-‘Refugees’ News- We learned today that just 267 illegal aliens have been returned to Mexico to await asylum hearings following the U.S. Supreme Court’s reinstatement of President Donald J. Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy.  We have also seen video of the federal government redistributing illegal aliens across the country with the perpetrators saying they must keep everything on the lowdown lest the American people discover the sordid truth that their government is betraying them.  We believe the Rio Grande must be seeded with alligator pups, piranha babies, and that the border must be militarized lest the scenario portrayed in the original “Red Dawn” movie occur only with Chi-Coms in the place of the Russians.  (Note- if you haven’t seen the Patrick Swayze version from the 1980s, do yourselves a favor and rent or buy it NOW).
  9. 2022 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- son of one of the Rolling Stones- is blasting the tidal wave of angry truckers descending upon Ottawa in protest of vaccine mandates as being little more than ‘fringe nuts.’  We hope the truckers drag your little candy ass out of your hidey hole and give you a good thrashing.  Still, Trudeau and his far-left cronies could send out the tanks and conduct their own Tiananmen Square-style massacre of the truckers.  While we hope something as appalling as this does not occur, when autocrats fear losing power, they will resort to any crime, no matter how evil, to maintain it.
  10. 2022 Friday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- Six-thousand federal employees have signed onto a lawsuit against Joe Biden’s highly unconstitutional vaccine mandates for all federal employees.  Next, much to the chagrin of governments worldwide, a new survey says that travelers are far less concerned about the Omicron surge than they were during Delta.
  11. 2022 Friday J: WAR NEWS Part I- U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and the highly disreputable and untrustworthy Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley continue pounding away at the same drums the Bush-Cheney regime used back in 2002 and 2003 to go to war in Iraq so they can engineer a war with Russia over Ukraine.  We have seen the exact same scenario we saw back then playing out now and all we can say is ’enough is enough.’  Stop it.  Ukraine is not our problem.  The only reason Dick Morris continues pushing for a ‘robust response in Ukraine is because back when he was advising President Bill Clinton, he advised him to talk Ukraine into surrendering its nukes in exchange for America’s promise to defend them.’  Ukraine is not our problem whereas our borders being overrun by military-aged males is.
  12. 2022 Friday K: WAR NEWS Part II- Something strange is occurring here and we must get to the bottom of it lest we lose our country.  Russian Foreign Secretary Sergei Lavrov said once again that his nation does not want war.  The Pentagon urges Vladimir Putin to stand down on Ukraine, but Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has told the Biden regime to stand down.  Joe needs a war to save himself and the SOB is going to cause one.  Enough is f**king enough already.
  13. 2022 Friday L: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- Prior to Joe Biden arriving in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to push his Build Back Better program in general and bridge repairs in particular, a bridge in the Steel City collapsed.  Wow.  Also, two Pennsylvania Democrats running for office said that ‘scheduling conflicts prevented them from hanging out with President Joe Biden.’  Whoa!    Congressman Ralph Norman, R-SC 5th congressional district, said that Democrats are ‘avoiding toxic Joe Biden’ during his trip to Pennsylvania.  Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that Joe Biden’s ‘infrastructure plan does not meet the needs of the American people.’  Finally, a new poll from the Kaiser Foundation says that ‘COVID-19 fatigue among the American people does not bode well for the Biden regime.’
  14. 2022 Friday M: Joe Biden Regime News I- Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said today that ‘Putin’s intentions on the eastern Ukraine still are not clear.’  Uh, okay, Ukraine continues saying, ‘nothing to see here, move on’ so let’s move the flip on already.  Echoing the Biden regime, however, former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Kurt Volker said today that it would be a ‘costly endeavor’ for Vladimir Putin should Russia invade Ukraine.  Congressman Don Bacon, R-NE 2nd congressional district, says that Joe Biden should be more proactive in deterring Vladimir Putin from invading Ukraine.  (Note- if Russia invades Ukraine, we expect it to be over within a matter of days if they follow the model, they used in invading Afghanistan back in the late 1970s).
  15. 2022 Friday N: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- The ‘prestigious and much respected’ (yeah, right) January 06, 2021, False Flag Operation ‘Select Committee’ now wants to question 14 alternate electors from some of the states.  Look, you dumb asses, back in 2016, you guys were trying to BUY alternate electors who would go against President Donald J. Trump and install corrupt and highly unlikable Hillary Clinton into the White House as the 45th president.  You guys will pay a price if you fail in toppling the Constitution which is what you scumbags are doing.
  16. 2022 Friday O: Political News I- A new report suggests that U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is reaching out to former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-GA 6th congressional district, to cobble together a 2022 strategy.  Leader McCarthy- create a new contract for America, one that will eliminate RINOs and stand for America First in ALL policies.  We must defend the borders, we must go after criminal Democrats, and we must right the wrongs of the last election so that future ones are secure and that ALL Americans can accept the results, not just some of them.  We also must impeach Joe Biden, eject him from the White House, and quite possibly send him and his entire criminal family to prison for the rest of their lives.
  17. 2022 Friday P: Moron News I- So ancient actress and semi-intelligent political pundit Bette Midler (when was the last time the old bag did anything of value?) slandered the state of West Virginia and its citizens, Governor Jim Justice told the ‘never-divine Ms. M’ to kiss his dog’s hiney and then held his dog up- exposing its backside for the cameras- amidst the cheers and applause of assembled lawmakers.  Only a Southern politician would do something like this because they know how to have a good laugh as did everyone else around them in the State House.  God bless you, Governor Justice- you told that old skank to go screw herself in the perfect way.  Hilarious.
  18. 2022 Friday Q: Wokeism-Woke-Wokies- Pregnant man and pregnant person emojis coming to iPhone.  How fucking stupid.  Meanwhile, police are going to destroy the gun used by Kyle Rittenhouse in the defense of his life.  How stupid is this?  In other WOKE news, actor Sean Penn said of boys and men who wear skirts that it’s ‘cowardly genes’ causing them to behave the fool.  (Note- back in the 1970s and before, we could accept tranny men wearing skirts.  We called them ‘exotics’ on the one hand and ‘chicks with dicks’ on the other hand.  Everyone knows there’s some in every crowd but to embrace it wholeheartedly is to send our country on the path followed by the Ancient Greeks- which ain’t good).  Finally, in other WOKE news, another aged entertainer- Joni Mitchell- is pulling her music off of Spotify to show support for Neil Young who is mad at Joe Rogan.  Look- it’s your loss.
  19. 2022 Friday R: Observation of the Day- The Reverend Jesse Jackson once said famously, ‘stay out-d bushes,’ meaning avoid the Bush Family.  Well, it appears to us that the Biden Family is as corrupt as was the Bush #43 regime.  We don’t claim to know that George W. Bush himself was corrupt, but his vice president engineered a major debacle in the heart of the Middle East that transferred power squarely into the hands of Iran, a despotic hellhole.  Many of us were blinded at the time believing that yes, weapons of mass destruction were a threat.  Now, however, we understand that flailing regimes will gin up wars to take the heat off of them.  This is precisely what Joe Biden is doing.  First, he was not going to send U.S. troops to Ukraine and then today, he said that he is.  The Ancient Romans went down a similar path: perpetual war, political strife, a hodgepodge of cultures, acceptance of perversion, deviancy, and depravity as the norm, and an inability to defend its borders as well as one invasion of barbarians after another.  We must stop this, or we will face the exact same consequences.
  20. 2022 Friday S: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1733 what with a $x million jackpot on the line: 03, 16, 25, 44, 55, and Mega 13.  Out of 167,476 winning tickets in California, ONE person had FIVE numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $421 million.  The winning ticket was sold at CF United CVX #0223 in Woodland Hills, CA 91367.  Congratulations.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

22. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JANUARY 22, 2022

2005 Saturday: Following the filing against him of war crimes charges resulting from U.S. actions in the Iraq War, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld cancels an appearance in Germany, the country where the charges were filed. This also follows a report from the Washington Post regarding a clandestine organization within the Pentagon that allows the U.S. military to skirt cooperation with the Central Intelligence Agency, and which is under direct control of Secretary Rumsfeld. Known as the Strategic Support Branch, it allows military intelligence to do whatever they have to do to ‘question’ jihadist suspects. In some circles, we call this “TORTURE.”

  53. 2004 Thursday: The Democratic Party goes before the microphone banks and accuses the Republican Party of having its operatives hack into DNC computers.  Didn’t they accuse President Richard M. Nixon’s people of doing the exact same thing?  Uh, yeah, the tune sounds familiar.
  54. 2005 Saturday: Following the filing against him of war crimes charges resulting from U.S. actions in the Iraq War, U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld cancels an appearance in Germany, the country where the charges were filed.  This also follows a report from the Washington Post regarding a clandestine organization within the Pentagon that allows the U.S. military to skirt cooperation with the Central Intelligence Agency, and which is under direct control of Secretary Rumsfeld.  Known as the Strategic Support Branch, it allows military intelligence to do whatever they have to do to ‘question’ jihadist suspects.   In some circles, we call this “TORTURE.”
  55. 2006 Sunday: Following two explosions along Russian pipelines running through North Ossetia, Moscow cuts off supplies of natural gas to Georgia and Armenia, two countries it is secretly trying to manipulate into doing its bidding and preventing them from cozying up to the West.
  56. 2007 Monday: The much-beloved religion of peace- Islam (which ain’t no ‘religion of peace’) sees death and destruction across the cities of Baghdad and Baquoba as more than 100 people are killed and God knows how many injured.  This is the result of President George W. Bush’s unnecessary invasion of this country.
  57. 2008 Tuesday: As the 2008 Presidential Primaries continue, former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson, R-TN, announces he is withdrawing from the race.  Meanwhile, India is having problems what with the bird flu- H5N1- running amok through parts of their country.  Everyone secretly suspects that the bird flu is yet another escapee out of communist China which just so happens to be right next door to the world’s largest democracy.
  58. 2009 Thursday: President Barack Hussein Obama goes before the microphone banks and promises that within ONE YEAR from today, he will close down the POW camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and will bring the Islamist scum held there to the United States to stand trial in federal court.  He also pledges to his eager listeners that the U.S. will NO longer torture its enemies.  (Note- we shall see).  In other news, Microsoft announces it will slash 5,000 jobs as the demand for desktop computers has dropped dramatically. 
  59. 2010 Friday: Thousands of Venezuelans protest for and against Hugo Chavez’s policies regarding energy shortages and currency revaluation.  Elsewhere, even though President Barack Hussein Obama promised that he would close down Guantanamo Bay, Cuba’s POW camp for Islamist terrorists on Day No. 1, the BBC reports that a U.S. Justice Department task force recommends that 47 of the scumbags held there should be held ‘indefinitely.’  (How about this: SHOOT THEM).  
  60. 2011 Saturday: In his second to his final bout, former heavyweight champion Evander “The Real Deal” Holyfield saw his pro record go to 43-4-2 with a NO CONTEST in the 3rd round of a scheduled 12-round bout when he suffered an accidental head gash in the WBF title bout with opponent Sherman Williams.   Elsewhere, in Belarus, following the swearing in of new President Alexander Lukashenko, his goons then go out and begin arresting members of the opposition.
  61. 2012 Sunday: We learned that yesterday, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich won the South Carolina primary with 40-percent of the vote.   Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney who came in second with 28-percent of the vote in the state that began the American Civil War whines that ‘Newt is using weapons of the left’ to be his fellow Republicans in the primary and that ‘they will come back around on him and them.’  Elsewhere, video of Congressman Ron Paul speaking in front of a Confederate flag arises which brings condemnation on the Republican from Texas.  Oh, boohoo.
  62. 2013 Tuesday: Chinese researchers discover an ancient human fossil in a cave near Beijing; the 40,000-year-old leg bone shows that it was related to present-day Asians and Native Americans, thus the Chi-Coms would have us believe that they have a claim to North America.  Let’s nuke these SOBs.  
  63. 2014 Wednesday: The European Space Agency researchers detect water vapor on the minor planet Ceres, the largest asteroid and only dwarf planet within the inner Solar System, an utterly amazing find.  Elsewhere, a rare, blue, 29.6-carat diamond, one of the most exceptional ever mined at the Cullinan mine, is discovered about 25 miles northeast of Pretoria, South Africa.
  64. 2015 Thursday: The European Central Bank announces that it is going to follow the same crackpot economic policies of the United States by going to ‘quantitative easing,’ where it is going to print (worthless) Euros with which to purchase government-issued debt instruments.  The Europeans hope that is going to improve the crumbling economy within the Eurozone but all they need do is to look at Barack Obama’s America—disasters loom ahead for the Europeans.  Elsewhere, both the president and prime minister of Yemen resign their offices following the storming of the presidential palace the day prior.
  65. 2016 Friday: Following the horrid Paris terrorist attacks of 2015, the U.S. strengthens its visa entry requirements in the hope of preventing similar attacks from occurring in the U.S.  All visitors from Japan, Europe, and Australia who have visited Iran, Iraq, Syria, or Sudan in the past five years to obtain NEW visas or be turned away.
  66. 2017 Sunday: In the NFC Championship Game, the Atlanta Falcons destroy the Green Bay Packers, 44-21—and move onto Super Bowl LI.  Meanwhile, in the AFC Championship Game, the New England Patriots move onto Super Bowl LI after demolishing the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 36-17.  For the Falcons, it will be only their second super bowl appearance in franchise history while for the Patriots in the Belichick-Brady Era it will be their seventh appearance.   Elsewhere- in Herefordshire, England- longtime bassist with the British rock bands, Mott the Hoople, Mott, and the British Lions[v]– Peter “Overend” Watts lost his battle with throat cancer on this date.  The legendary bassist was 69 years old.
  67. 2018 Monday: The United States- to the shock of millions of Palestinian-lovers- announces that the U.S. will recognize Jerusalem as the eternal capital of Israel.  Anti-Semites go nuts across the U.S. and around the world.   In a speech before the Knesset, Vice President Mike Pence says it will become official in early 2019 with the opening of a brand-new embassy.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate strikes a deal to keep the government open until February 8 by which time they hope to have a funding bill passed.
  68. 2019 Tuesday: As the now-infamous government shutdown continues to drag on, various federal government agencies lament as to ‘how bad’ things are going to become if funding does not immediately begin flowing into their flaccid agencies.   In the U.S. Senate, senators debate competing funding bills.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court greenlights President Donald J. Trump’s requested ban of transgender servicemembers.  Down in Venezuela, people are getting killed as anti-government protests continue ramping up and the illegal government of strongman Nicolas Maduro sends loyal troops out into the streets to beat the people back into line.
  69. 2020 Wednesday: Communist Chinese health authorities seal off the entire city of Wuhan, China, as COVID-19 cases begin exploding across the city.  It’s too late as the disease is hopscotching around the planet.  Elsewhere, following an argument outside a McDonald’s restaurant in Seattle, Washington, eight people suffer gunshot wounds with one dead.  Meanwhile, in the U.S. Senate, opening arguments in Washington, D.C. in the FIRST IMPEACHMENT TRIAL of President Donald J. Trump get underway.  Finally, the Oakland Raiders make it official: they are now the Las Vegas Raiders. 
  70. 2021 Friday:  As confirmation hearings for ‘President’ Joe Biden’s Cabinet continues, Little Mayor Pete Buttigieg, up for secretary of Transportation, when asked about the immediate loss of 10,000-to-11,000 high-paying jobs for those engaged in constructing the Keystone XL Pipeline, evades the question by saying, ‘we’ll find them other jobs.’  Pete, you gonna teach them to CODE?  Meanwhile, with the bust of Winston Churchill banished from the Oval Office back to the basement again, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, and other senators want the POW/MIA flag returned to the White House.  What’s up, “Beijing Biden?”  Speaking of the usurper ‘President’ Joe Biden, he orders U.S. intelligence agencies to turn their vision INWARD to root out white supremacists, white militia members, and others now deemed to be enemies of the state.  (Note- Chef Charles says white males are to Democrats what Jews were to Nazis.  Read his post on Monday).  Next, critics of the executive order on trannys participating in sports opposite their biological sex is the “erasure of women.”  It once was Democrats once loved women whereas now, not so much.  They love illegal aliens and perversion more.
  71. 2021 Friday A: After massive outrage occurred over Tweeted videos of U.S. National Guard members sleeping in a parking garage in Washington, D.C., surfaced- in 32-degree and colder weather- First Lady Jill Biden went down there for photo ops, kissed, and made nice, and allowed them to return to the Capitol Building.  They were sent to the parking garage once their photo purpose was over- making it appear that the Capitol and the Inauguration was imminent threat of attack by Trump supporters because Democrats have NO LOVE for the American military.  Hence why Governors Greg Abbott, Texas, and Ron DeSantis, Florida, are calling their guard members home or vowing never to send them again.  Excellent.
  72. 2021 Friday B: Pressure is mounting on ‘President’ Joe Biden NOT to hire BIG TECH hacks to flesh out his White House communications department.  Meanwhile, Google is threatening to strip its search engine from Australia (there’s Mozilla, Opera, Bing, Safari, among others) because of a bill there that will charge Google for its news feeds.  BIG TECH trying to crush people and countries again yet loves the Chi-Coms.  Wow.  Elsewhere, Bloomberg News says it might be ‘difficult’ to ban Fox News Channel and Newsmax.  Where there’s a will, there’s a way, you frigging fascists.  Meanwhile, Google is shuttering Loon, an alternative to cellphone towers using balloons.
  73. 2021 Friday C: “Hammering Hank” Aaron baseball great received the COVID-19 vaccine as a way of encouraging fellow black folks to get the vaccine back on January 5.  On January 22, he is dead at age 86.  Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says there is NO way her or her family is getting the vaccine because when white liberals encourage black folks to do something, it never works out good for them.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. Tony Fauci, a guy who’s all over the ballpark and not in a clever way says, he thinks we are plateauing out now what with ‘Usurper Joe’ Biden as our president.  Simultaneously, Great Britain says their variant of the Chi-Vi is not only more contagious but also more deadly.  Wow.   
  74. 2021 Friday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden is pushing stopgap measures while he tries to get Congress onboard with his $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, a plan that will be funded with Chi-Com cash. In a sign of an ‘improving Biden economy,’ the ‘46th president’ is pushing for more food stamps like his former boss, Barack Obama, did back during the eight years of Obama-Biden.  Things were so good back then; food stamp usage was at an all-time historic high.  Guess we are returning to the GOOD OLD DAYS.  Likewise, he is pushing his $15 minimum wage increase for all federal workers which also is going to harm the economy.  In other interesting economic/labor news, Amazon.com is demanding IN-PERSON voting in the union vote in COVID-19-afflicted Alabama.  Amazon wants ‘in-person voting’ but in the 2020 Presidential Election, we couldn’t have ‘in person’ voting?  Tells you all you need to know: “86 46.”
  75. 2021 Friday E: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, and Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell plan to get the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump underway and soon.  However, constitutional scholars say you CANNOT impeach a former president.  I guess we shall see.  Former White House economic adviser Peter Navarro says you ‘forget unity’ if this bogus sham moves forward.   Speaking of impeachment, freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Green- the famed MTG- has put forth articles of impeachment for the ‘46th president’ over his close ties to the Chi-Coms who are celebrating the NEW ‘Biden administration’ and the departure of Donald J. Trump.  It tells you all you need to know.  Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, also says ‘President’ Joe Biden should immediately nix the bogus impeachment of the out-of-office 45th president.  We concur.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Upon orders from ‘President’ Joe Biden, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers halts construction on the southern border wall.  There goes more interconnected jobs.   Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas says ‘President’ Joe Biden must reconsider stoppage of the Keystone XL Pipeline project.  He won’t.  Moving on, a unanimous vote puts Janet Yellen in as secretary of the U.S. Treasury while a nearly unanimous votes makes U.S. Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, Ret., as the new 28th secretary of Defense.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense David Norquist stepped down on this date.  He served from January 20 until today.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Twitter finally cancels the scumbag ayatollah of Iran for calling death and destruction down upon Donald Trump.  What took you so long?   Speaking of former President Trump, his banks move to cancel him and his banking accounts.  Wow.  This is America?  Meanwhile, the Kremlin welcomes the ‘Biden administration’s’ return to extend the Open Skies Treaty between the U.S. and Russia but would like to see the details.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are importing ‘doctored oil’ from Venezuela so as to sneak it past inspectors seeking to clamp down on oil imports from the totalitarian hellhole.  Elsewhere, in other interesting news, the city of Chicago has already experienced 1,125 violent carjackings just this year.  Who the hell wants to visit the Windy City?
  78. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 97,973,544 confirmed cases, +717,789, 2,101,894, confirmed deaths, +17,882, and 54,008,728 confirmed recoveries (lower than reported last week), +419,939.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 24,973,544 confirmed cases, up 477,526 from yesterday’s reporting, 415,653 confirmed deaths, UP 9,463, and 10,913,397 confirmed recoveries, UP 351,315.
  79. 2021 Friday 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: 3,115,704 confirmed cases, 35,768 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (this number has not changed in a week), 328 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 300,420 confirmed cases, 4,131 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New Hampshire: currently, they have 60,294 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and 53,128 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 582,869 confirmed cases, 4,245 confirmed deaths, and 497,578 confirmed recoveries.   
  80. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 88,701 cases, +247, 4,635 confirmed deaths, and 82,468 confirmed recoveries, +36.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.  Rat-eating scum.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Amazon.com is offering to help the ‘Biden administration’ with distribution of the now-questionable vaccines.  They could have aided the previous president but nope, no flipping way.
  81. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,996.98, DOWN 179.03 points (-0.57%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,543.06, UP 12.15 points (+0.09%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,841.47, DOWN 11.60 points (-0.30%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.50 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.56 per troy ounce, +0.009 (+0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,109.10 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, -0.0065 (-0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,365.20 per troy oz, -9.90 (-0.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $51.98 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.55%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000030 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 75.15 Russian rubles.   In other economic news, U.S. house sales of existing homes hits its highest mark back in 2006 at an 0.22-percent increase due to a slowdown in new home construction.  However, we fear that unless the government provides aid to landlords, the Chi-Coms will become the de facto landowner in the U.S. via using strawman companies to snap up all available real estate.  We cannot permit something as outrageous as this EVER to happen.
  82. 2021 Friday L: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions draw what with a $999 million jackpot up for grabs.  Okay, here’s the numbers for Draw #1627 with NO BIG WINNER(S): 04, 26, 42, 50, 60, and Mega 24.  Out of 1,082,353 winning tickets, the highest winners were 26 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,036 apiece.  UPDATE- although the California Lottery website shows the Mega Millions pot is now $20 million, it still is not showing that someone actually WON the pot, estimated to be $1.1 billion.  News media is reporting a sole winner in Michigan so we will update when we possess the information.  FINAL UPDATE: one person won in Michigan won the big pot worth $1.01 billion.  Congratulations.
  83. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 16, 2007, Sandy Denny’s label released a concise package from the “Live at the BBC” Box Set that came out three days earlier, also called “Live at the BBC.”  This one contained the unreleased tracks augmented with some others so fans who had much of her earlier BBC recordings could latch onto these for a lesser price than the big box.  We are not saying that the box set is not worth it because it most assuredly is, but this is also a good addition because you get some tunes you had no clue ever existed.  We hope you will visit Amazon.com, Discogs, AllMusic, eBay, or any other place you shop for the absolute best in music and consider making it a part of your listening day- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

71. 2020 Friday: Following the take-out of Iranian thug General Qassim Soleimani outside the Baghdad airport yesterday, the Iraqi government in a state of shock begins mulling its relationship with the United States. They scream and yell like a bunch of howling banshees, but it is what it is- either you are with us, or you are against us and General Soleimani was a POS who needed to die.
