  59. 2020 Saturday:  Already tensions are growing as to whom will replace Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.  This is what most of the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe: after what the Democrats and the RINOS have put you through what with the false claims of Russian collusion, impeachment, and roadblocks at every turn, nominate the replacement on Monday and go for it.  As for quavering GOP senators, do you want to go down as a FIGHTER and lose your seat or as a COLLABORATIONIST and perhaps lose your seat anyway?  States with messed-up elections systems such as California and Maine must contest these bogus systems at the Supreme Court and the only way we can win is with a strong conservative on the court.  Republicans, do your duty as you know the Democrats would not waver in doing theirs and in fact would hasten it as quickly as possible.   President Trump is down in North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is at home in his basement spanking the wank.  Elsewhere, a shooting at a party with 100 revelers or more in Buffalo, New York claims the life of one partygoer and injures four others.   Speaking of SCOTUS, Fox News Channel reports (erroneously, in our view) that voters trust “Pro-China Joe” Biden on picking Supreme Court nominees by a whopping 52 percent to 45 percent for Donald Trump.  Yup, sure they do…sure they do…

  73. 2022 Monday: Observation of the Day- Well, well, well, so little Lindsey Graham- last week- released his new bill to national opprobrium that would restrict abortions to 15 weeks- across the entire country. Look, I am Pro-Life, but I suspect that what Senator Graham is doing is the same as what we allege Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did and that is to toss the Democrats AND Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell.  We contend at the AICPENDBLOG.COM that Roberts is the one behind the now infamous leak of the opinion that sent abortion back to the fifty states.  We allege Roberts did this (haven’t found the leaker yet, have they?) so as to mobilize all the Pro-Death maggots to take to the streets and cause trouble.  Similarly, Senator Graham did this so as to prevent a GOP takeover of the Senate so his good friend and boss, the Turtle, could keep his leadership position as minority leader.  While we believe the GOP is going to overwhelm the Senate in November, the question is this: will the new Republican senators possess the big balls to vote the Turtle out of the leadership?  Look, we need to win both Houses and BOTH McConnell and that POS Kevin McCarthy must lose their seats.  Otherwise, it’s the same old shit.  Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick returned to form with their next studio release, “One on One” which came out on April 30, 1982.  The lineup was different what with the departure of Tom Petersson in 1980 featuring a refurbished lineup of Robin Zander (guitars, backing vocals, bass, and keyboards), Robin Zander (rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and new bassist/backing vocalist Jon Brant.  The album was somewhat a blast from the past returning the band to its earlier form, hard-rocking pop musicians.  “If You Want My Love” is the big hit on this album as well as “She’s Tight.”  We love this band, we love this album, and we encourage everyone to seek it out at your favorite site for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

244. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 01, 2022

2022 Thursday: Some of my GOP colleagues are upset with me over my brash defenses of the Democratic Party and of President Joseph R. Biden. With respect to them, I call things the way I see them and to me- even though Donald Trump did some good things- he is a clear and present danger to our country. Bill Maher’s correct when he says, ‘there’s nothing wrong with having a conspiracy to get rid of President Trump.’

  66. 2017 Friday: A line of cars stretched more than a mile at a water distribution center set up on a high school football field in Beaumont, Texas, which had been left without drinking water by flooding from Hurricane Harvey.

  68. 2019 Sunday: According to the International Red Cross, Saudi-led Coalition airstrikes over the Yemeni city of Dhamar kill at least 100 people on the ground and wound numerous others.   Meanwhile, Hurricane Dorian becomes a Cat 5 storm as it roars into the northern Bahamas with winds in excess of 180 mph.
  69. 2020 Tuesday: As of today, Real Clear Politics average polling shows “Gropin’ Joe” Biden with a lead of 49.6-43.4-percent over President Donald J. Trump.  Left-wing online media reports that President Trump will win in a massive landslide victory on Election Day but by Sunday as all the extra leftist mail-in ballots roll in, he will lose in a massive landslide.  Hence why conservatives are now registering illegal aliens around the country so they can vote, too.  If the Dems want to play this game, so can we.  Next, ICE reports the arrests of more than 2,000 illegal aliens around the country, 86-percent of whom had criminal records and were sheltered by sanctuary cities and states. The arrestees and soon to be deportees came from a whopping 80 different countries.  Bon voyage, illegal aliens, bon voyage.  Meanwhile, shortly after midnight today, peaceful protesters showed up outside the home of Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler’s[vi] home and attempted to set it ablaze with him aside.  Thank God they were peaceful!  Elsewhere, Massachusetts Rep. Joseph Kennedy III (another flipping Kennedy) is primarying Senator Ed Markey, a fellow Democrat, as the ‘Curse of AOC’ continues setting up old-timer Democrats for tragic downfalls.  However, in this case, the Baby Evita is backing Markey because he leapt atop the Green New Deal sparing his political life.  Hey: why won’t House Speaker “Mumbles” Nancy Pelosi debate her Democratic challenger, Shahid Buttar, a Muslim attorney, prior to the November elections?  Madam Pelosi, double up on the Prevagen and get your wrinkly old butt out there and debate this man!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump flies to Kenosha, Wisconsin, to meet with local, state, and federal law enforcement officers and officials and to tour the damage that befell the once-prosperous community prior to the cops shooting thug George Blake seven times in the back as he reached for a weapon in his car and then when Antifa and Black Lives Matter arrived on scene and destroyed much of the municipality.   
  70. : New York City Mayor Bill di Blasio, a drooling moron if ever one existed, says taxes are going to go UP because the wealthy are fleeing the city as it collapses all around him.  He promises to build affordable housing in WHITE areas so he can end segregation and that he will continue defunding the cops.  Before this lunatic raises taxes, how about him writing a BIG CHECK to fill the city’s coffers and how about his wife repaying- with interest- all the money she allegedly siphoned off the city government in her bogus, left-wing commie plans.  The city collects $11 billion in income taxes every year, 80-percent of which goes to cover pension and retirement plans for city workers.  Hmmm, sounds familiar…like the state of California?  Yikes. 
  71. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 25,334,339 confirmed cases, UP by 283,161 cases, 848,084 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,498 deaths, and 16,669,974 confirmed recoveries, UP by 218,956 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,118,204 confirmed cases, UP by 36,832 new cases, 186,348 confirmed deaths, UP by 478 new deaths, and 3,218,565 confirmed recoveries, UP by 16,108 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 707,797 confirmed cases, 13,018 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,472 confirmed cases, 70 confirmed deaths, and 2,578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 74,635 confirmed cases, 1,915 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 435,510 confirmed number of cases, and this week, a scaling DOWN in the number of reported deaths from 32,864 August 25, 2020, to 25,331 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  This tells us that the worst governor in the country, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, is feeling the heat for the massive number of seniors he murdered by sending COVID-19-infected patients into the state’s nursing homes.   We hope to see this POS forced to resign as President Richard M. Nixon did and move into obscurity, the end of the ‘Cuomo Dynasty.’  Go get ‘em, U.S. Department of Justice, go get ‘em!
  73. 2020 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,645.66, UP 215.61 points (+0.76%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,939.67, UP 164.21 points (+1.39%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,526.65, UP 26.34 points (+0.75%).  The price of GOLD is $1,975.20 per troy oz., -3.7 (-0.187%) while the price of SILVER is $28.30 per troy ounce, -0.345 (-1.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.80 per troy oz, -3.03 (-0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $3.21 per pound, -0.007 (-0.23%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,298.00 per troy oz., -11.8 (-0.51).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.98 per barrel, +0.22 (+0.51%).  Today, COFFEE is $129.80 per metric ton, -1.95 (-1.48).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.83 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  74. 2020 Tuesday E: Bret Baier of Fox News Channel’s Special Report reports that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was captured on videotape getting her hair done at a San Francisco hairdresser’s shop sans any mask or any protective gear.  When caught by reporters, she claims to ‘always follow the science’ which is great- why don’t you and the rest of your fellow Democrats follow the science on the amount of pain fetuses feel as they are undergoing an abortion procedure?   Meanwhile, tonight will be the 97th straight day of violent mob actions in the city of Portland, Oregon.  The governor is requesting help from around Oregon state but several sheriffs’ departments in the state as well as a police fraternal organization say “NO” because nothing is happening to the scum law enforcement arrests.  In Los Angeles, protests continue outside a Sheriff’s substation following the police shooting of a black man there the previous night.   Finally, Vice President Mike Pence was touring and speaking in “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, with BIG CROWDS in attendance.  No one knows where either Joe Biden or his running mate, uh, what’s her name- Kamala Harris- Willie Brown’s alleged bed buddy is.  They must ‘have it in the bag.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 219,265,651 confirmed cases, +724,657, 4,545,159 confirmed deaths, +11,550 and 196,041,211 confirmed recoveries, +676,085.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 40,330,712 confirmed cases, UP 216,613 from yesterday’s reporting, 659,927 confirmed deaths, UP 2,017, [vii] and 31,137,936 confirmed recoveries, UP 117,324.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

  76. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 341,339 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 62,869 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiv]      
  80. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $3.012 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.897 in Washington state. [xv]    Let us look at one other location- West Virginia: $3.029.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Malta: $5.968 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,711,349,628,593 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  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 Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Resistance fighters in the Panjshir Valley are throwing back Taliban thugs.  CNN claims that under the terms of a secret agreement with the United States, the Taliban are escorting Americans to safety.  We hear, however, that that simply is not true as women are being raped, children beaten, and men summarily killed in the streets.  Rep. Victoria Spartz, R-IN 5th CD, is demanding to know the HONEST number of Americans left in Afghanistan.
  82. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 161 for the MIA ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border crisis and Day No. 68 since her singular visit to the southern border.  Here are today’s figures regarding the illegal alien invasion.  First, the cost just this day is $536,643,968.  The fact that we are throwing this money down a crapper to care for Third World invaders is beyond comprehension.  Shocking, absolutely shocking.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the vermin this year: $266,838,065,182.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, for the veterans, for all those slain or wounded in action fighting the Untermensch overseas, imagine what that money could do, yet it goes into caring for ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Here is the number of those who have swarmed into the country like bedbugs for just this year: 2,734,876.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the United States as we speak: 36,734,876- we believe the true numbers to be closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport every single one of the leeches back to where they originated.   (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).
  83. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Data in the U.S. shows that the country has wasted 15 million COVID-19 vaccine doses since March of this year.
  84. 2021 Wednesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.04 (2) AstraZeneca $58.72 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.74 (4) BioNTech $332.50 (5) Moderna $389.94.  Folks, do you think the feds give a damn about 15 million doses going bad of the vaccines?  No, of course not, the federal government will drop billions more dollars atop the vaccine manufacturers, and they will crank them out sucking in that free cash like an Amazonian anaconda consumes a whole, squealing, water hog to its doom.  This is why there is a BIG PUSH for everyone to get TWO initial jabs- even if the side effects can prove devastating to the recipient- and then a booster shot 2-4 times per year.  IF anyone can prove different, we invite you to submit your facts, we will publish them, and either answer them or admit we’re wrong.  Do your best.
  85. 2021 Wednesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.10 (2) General Dynamics: $199.79 (3) Boeing: $218.12 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.66 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $364.98.  Same as what we have said other days, the federal government could give a damn about all the weapons left behind in Afghanistan.  No, they will request more cash and more weapons will be made.  What a frigging scam, one the Deep State and lawmakers all profit from.  It simply is not right.
  86. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News I– Rasmussen reports that 52-percent of Americans (which actually means that around 79-89-percent of Americans) want Joe Biden to resign over the Afghan mess.  (Note- we suspect that ‘Taliban Joe’ has outlived his usefulness and that now something will happen to cause him to vacate the office- watch out for those COVID-19 ‘booster shots’ there, Joe).  Even worse for feeble-minded Joe, Rasmussen says that 62-percent of the American people want to see the fossil impeached and removed from office.  Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘Joe Biden’s victory lap on Afghanistan is repulsive.’
  87. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Rep. Andrew Clyde, R-GA 9th CD says that privately, Dems are telling him that Biden’s leadership team has to go.  We agree.  They are failures, especially U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, and that ignorant POS Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley.  Fire them all and send them to prison.
  88. 2021 Wednesday M: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Liberal losers are shrieking at the top of their lungs down in Texas as the fetal heartbeat ban on abortions takes effect.  (Note- what the hell ever happened to personal responsibility and using birth control instead of fornicating like flipping dogs and then having the result murdered in the womb or worse on the birthing table?  WTF is wrong with these savages?)
  89. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3591 what with a $13 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 07, 10, 15, 43, 45, and Mega 07. Out of 104,304 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,403 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #879 with a jackpot of $345 million up for grabs: 10, 20, 29, 48, 51, and Power 17.  Out of 81,494 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $22,002 apiece.
  90. 2022 Thursday: Some of my GOP colleagues are upset with me over my brash defenses of the Democratic Party and of President Joseph R. Biden.  With respect to them, I call things the way I see them and to me- even though Donald Trump did some good things- he is a clear and present danger to our country.  Bill Maher’s correct when he says, ‘there’s nothing wrong with having a conspiracy to get rid of President Trump.’  The guy simply must go and if he did suddenly throw up his hands and say he was NOT going to run again and would stop endorsing MAGA Monsters, I am sure he would be left alone along with his family and could return to his private life.  Anyone else would have thrown in the towel by now.  Chef Itzi Nakamura.

213. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 01, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts? Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go. Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.

  61. 2009 Saturday: The thugs ruling Venezuela order the closure of at least 34 privately-owned radio stations.  It’s all for the ‘revolution’ don’t you know?  No- it’s what flipping communist do.  First thing that goes is freedom of speech.  Meanwhile, in Punjab, Pakistan, following claims that Christians desecrated a Holy Quran, jihadists murder six Christians.

  67. 2015 Saturday: After Puerto Rican Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla warned creditors the previous June that if its debt did not undergo restructuring to keep the commonwealth afloat, Puerto Rico fails to make a $58 billion payment on bonds issued by the Public Finance Corporation.  In other news, Palestinian riffraff have been causing trouble for the Israelis who after the scumbags murder an innocent wee babe in his crib by setting him on fire leads Israeli Defense Forces to take the fight to the human garbage.  At least two Palestinian 17-year-olds are killed in the resulting fray.
  68. 2016 Monday:  In the autonomous district of Yamalo-Nenets, Siberia, an outbreak of anthrax kills one person, sickens another eight, and kills at least 2,300 reindeer.  The authorities blame it on…climate change…what else?  Elsewhere, after receiving a request from the ‘government’ in Libya to take out ISIS thugs in Sirte, NATO warplanes arrive on scene, drops loads of bombs, and according to the government kills a whole lotta scumbags.
  69. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms the Honorable Christopher A.

Trump announces via a tweet that starting September 1, 2019, the U.S. is going to slap a 10-percent tariff on $300 billion of Chi-Com exports.  Good.  The SOBs have been raping the United States for a long, long time.  Time to make those bloodsuckers pay.
  72. 2020 Saturday: Florida is bracing today for incoming Hurricane Isaias.  Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans are working hard to craft a new Chinese Virus relief package.  The Democrats want to continue giving unemployed Americans $600 atop their state unemployment checks while the GOP wants to slash the additional funding to $200 atop the weekly state unemployment checks.  The GOP wants workers to return to work while the Democrats seek to keep them at home, dependent upon federal government until well after the November elections.  Democrats seek to topple the U.S. economy as only then can uber-leftists force Marxism down the throats of the American people.  Finally, BOTH Democrats and Republicans slam President Donald J. Trump for seeking to remove U.S. troops from Germany and redeploy them farther east to countries such as Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, as well as bring some of them home.  Very few NATO member countries fail to pay their annual 2-percent dues.   As for the most prosperous nation in Western Europe and a linchpin of the alliance: Germany wants U.S. troops to protect them from Russia, yet Angela Merkel makes energy deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas pipelines coming directly into her country.  This is bulls**t! 
  73. 2020 Saturday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 17,594,541 confirmed cases, UP 273,147, 679,439 confirmed deaths, UP 5,617, and 10,333,166 confirmed recoveries, UP 178,140.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,686,214 confirmed cases, UP 61,034 new cases, 156,370 confirmed deaths, UP 1,124, and 2,293,228 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,254.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,243 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 112,936 while the number of deaths is 13,588.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Tom Wolf is little more than a hardcore political hack.
  75. 2021 Sunday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 198,968,742 confirmed cases, +460,657, 4,239,563 confirmed deaths, +7,115 and 179,593,456 confirmed recoveries, +342,991.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,767,126 confirmed cases, UP 21,102 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,380 confirmed deaths, UP 70, [i] and 29,673,290 confirmed recoveries, UP 7,173.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,938 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 93,140 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[iii]    
  78. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 875,801 confirmed cases, 6,477 confirmed deaths, and 850,950 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Gambia, 166th country on the list: 7,709 cases of the virus, 212 confirmed deaths and 6,600 confirmed recoveries. [iv]     
  79. 2021 Sunday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,935.47, DOWN 149.06 points (-0.42%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,672.68, DOWN 105.59 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,395.26, DOWN 23.89 points (-0.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $73.81 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.19%).  The price of GOLD is $1,812.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.55 per troy ounce, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,045.90 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $4.48 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,660.50 per troy oz, +14.52 (+0.55%).[vi] The price of RHODIUM is $18,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).

[viii]        
  80. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.373 per gallon, $2.971 in Florida, $4.084 in Hawaii, and $3.854 in Washington state. [ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.816.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Jamaica: $4.711 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,591,181,135,271 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Arab Emirates, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 131 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the horrendous humanitarian disaster along the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.  It’s also her 37th day since her one and only visit to the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.   When we say ‘nothing,’ we mean, “NOTHING.”  It is time she laid down her duties- not that she ever picked them up- and returned home to spend more time with her family.  Adios.  Customs and Border Protection officials report that in the month of June, the authorities caught 190,000 illegals which means many, many more were able to have beaten the dragnet.   Speaking of CBP, former acting commissioner of the organization- Mark Morgan- calls out the hypocrisy of both Joe Biden and the Democrats over their stoppage of the border wall construction- ‘it would be cheaper to complete the wall rather than care for all of these frigging illegal aliens.’
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the horrendous ongoing mess along the southern border, here are the numbers reported by One America News for this disgusting disaster we have no choice but to watch.  It affects all of us, it harms all of us, and it will eat away at the guts of the country until everything implodes.  First, here is the COST THIS DAY of caring for all the frigging illegal aliens: $583,016,384.   Second, here is the COST THIS YEAR: $232,911,831,040.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens estimated to have crossed the border this year: 2,387,159.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals believed to be within the United States: 36,387,160.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- if you have read our blog site for any length of time, then you know we estimated as far back as 2009 when we first began being the voice of the culinary worker and professional chef that back then, we believed the number to be between 35-to-50 million whereas now, we suspect the honest-to-God number is closer to 75-100 million which means we have the seeds of our own demise residing within our country.  DEPORT THEM NOW no matter the difficulty or the cost.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– While sending Cubans back to their communist hellhole, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says that at least 100,000 Haitians will be provided work permits so they can work (and vote) in the U.S. without fear.  Elsewhere, seizures of fentanyl along the southern border are up by as much as 4,000-percent.  CBP officials report the drug comes from labs in Mexico supplied by the Chi-Coms and that it is used in cocaine, heroin, and in pill presses to create fake oxycontin and other pharmaceutical prescribed drugs being used by Americans.  Deaths are going way up once again now that President Donald J. Trump is not in the White House.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Former Iranian thug President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that while HE was president, the government lied for EIGHT years about its countless human rights abuses and violations.  Mahmoud, everyone knows that.  Iranian leaders are ALL liars.  Elsewhere, the government of Myanmar has extended its ‘state of emergency’ with the leader of the coup proclaimed the prime minister.  Meanwhile, the war in Afghanistan continues to rage what with the cities of Herat, Lashkar Gah, and Kandahar being attacked and overwhelmed in some places.  In the western portion of the country, the Taliban has attacked a United Nations compound.
  85. 2021 Sunday J:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As drooling Joe Biden continues trying to discern ways by which he can coerce the American people into taking the Kung Flu vaccines, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, says ‘nope’ to offering $100 incentives to entice her citizens into getting the shots.  (Note- we suspect they could jack it up to $1,000 per jab and people would still say, “HELL, NO, we are not getting this duck dreck”).  Meanwhile, CNN ‘health expert’ John Berman puts the blame for the ongoing ‘pandemic’ onto the shoulders of the unvaccinated while totally ignoring the wide-open borders and the hundreds of thousands of infected illegals pouring across into the United States.  Good try, Mr. Berman, but it’s all bullshit.  This dimwit also says that Joe Biden declared victory ‘way too early.’ 
  86. 2021 Sunday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Two countries- Thailand and Indonesia- are pushing away from using Chi-Com vaccines, finding fault with how they are manufactured and the myriad side effects they cause the recipients.  (Note- NO one should use any vaccine from either the Chi-Coms or the Russians.  Both are f**ked up countries).   Elsewhere, a new poll says that only 45-percent of the American people are concerned about getting the Chi-Vi while 13-percent- hardcore liberals- wet their beds at night in terror of contracting it.   What’s more, Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths and hospitalizations are at record lows.  Yes, the Delta variant of the Chi-Com flu is much more contagious- like the common cold- but much less lethal.  Also let’s not forget that about one week ago today, the Dems were beginning to drive up the fears of the Lambda variant but then abruptly yanked that one back for use at a later date.  Delta comes from India while Lambda comes from Peru. 
  87. 2021 Sunday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Fox News host Judge Janine Pirro says that the government is setting up for future COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions- especially going into 2022 so the Dems and their RINO sycophants can replicate the elections theft they perfected in conjunction with the Chi-Coms in 2020.  Judge Pirro points out that the LEFT is the science deniers.  She also asked what the ‘endgame’ in this horrible scheme is? In other Chi-Vi news, the Centers for Disease Control is paying the National Football League’s Alumni Association $3.5 million to get retired players to coerce current players into taking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines even though they have no desire to do it.  Next, in two San Francisco, California, hospitals, 233 breakthrough cases among fully vaccinated staff have occurred with at least TWO of them hospitalized.  Finally, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, R, is blasting health officials for exaggerating COVID-19’s danger via their frightening hyperbole.
  88. 2021 Sunday M: Political News I– The ‘mask mandate’ imposed by nonagenarian U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is not only unpopular with most Republicans, but  also becoming increasingly unpopular with many Democrats as well- so says the polls.  Speaking of mask mandates, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser like many other Democrats- including “Mumbles” Pelosi and her corpulent sidekick, Rep. Jerrold “Tub-of-Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th CD, all have been captured wandering around sans masks.  Next, Democrats are fretting over the fact that millions of Americans could soon be homeless once the moratorium on evictions vanishes but here’s the deal: most of the $45 billion earmarked for helping renters and mortgage holders keep current remains unused which means it’s resting peacefully in the pockets of Democrat and RINO politicians.   
  89. 2021 Sunday N: Political News II– We have been long hoping for this but it sounds like former Alaska GOP Governor Sarah Palin could return to politics and take a go at highly unpopular current Senator Lisa Murkowski in 2022.  We hope to God she runs and beats this Republican-in-name-only.  She would be an amazing addition to the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, says that ‘IF he gets the gavel in November 2022, he will launch investigations into drooling Joe Biden and extremely corrupt House Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi.   Speaking of moronic Democrats, the police chief of Charleston, South Carolina, Luther Reynolds, says that the Democrats’ Defund the Police scheme is blowing up in their faces.
  90. 2021 Sunday O: Business News– Amazon has been slammed with a $886 million fine over a recent data law breach.  Meanwhile, British-based bank Monzo Bank Ltd finds itself embroiled in a money-laundering mess.
  91. 2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts?  Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go.  Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.  I suspect that once liberal lunatics such as Joe f**king Biden seize power as his good buddy, Justin Trudeau has already done and others follow, the New World Order will be imposed on the global population with the Chi-Coms at the top.  This is evil, coordinated, and propaganda/fake news supported, and I fear if they find a way to force everyone to remain at home another election cycle, it will become a fait accompli.  Although Ukraine is being destroyed, it will be rebuilt once the world is starved into submission, the people driven into poverty, and freeze in the winters and broil in the summers, it will be too late.  Tell me what you think- Chef Hector.

The next album by Beach Boys’ genius, Brian Wilson, is his first seasonal release: “What I Really Want for Christmas,” an album that came out on October 18, 2005.  The Beach Boys had a glorious Christmas album so it would make sense that Brian would do something similar and thus, here it is.  Besides doing some of his classic Beach Boys tunes such as “Little St. Nick” and “The Man with All the Toys,” he delivers some amazing covers of other, classic Yuletide tunes.  As always, he has a superb cast of supporting musicians with which to deliver a delightful holiday package.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure around the holidays.  You will be extremely glad you did- we guarantee it.

207. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 26, 2022

2022 Tuesday: I would love to sit down with “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, the soon-to-be ex-representative from Wyoming and tell this incredibly stupid bi**h that the more she and her cronies go after President Donald J. Trump, the stronger they make him and his movement. I know Democrats who want to see Joe Biden relegated to the dumpster fire of history and President Trump and pro-America politicians and bureaucrats returned to the White House and government.

[x]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.     In Falklands Islands Pound, one greenback equals 0.708843 and in Fijian Dollar, a buck equals 2.06 and in French Pacific Franc, one dollar equals 100.90 of theirs.[xi]       
  63. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.332 per gallon, $2.967 in Florida, $4.065 in Hawaii, and $3.837 in Washington state. [xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Iowa: $2.983.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Uganda: $4.505 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,568,407,681,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 125 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and her 31st day since her one and only visit to the El Paso Sector along the border.  Sadly, for the country, the invasion of the United States continues around the clock as thousands cross every single day into the country, turning themselves over to border authorities, and then being distributed across the entire country.   We learned today that Joe Biden’s halting of the border wall project is costing U.S. taxpayers $3 million per day in shut down costs, security costs, and other incidental costs. 
  65. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, raised an important question: ‘Where was U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ warning to all the illegals flooding across the southern border?’  After all, the DHS secretary warned Cubans NOT to venture to the United States as they would be denied entry into the United States.   Meanwhile, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says the Biden halt on building the border wall is “a crime against nature and intelligence.”  Next, Governor Kristi Noem journeyed to the Tex-Mex border today to view the ongoing Joe Biden-caused crisis occurring there around the clock.
  66. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Tunisian president has shuttered the doors on the nation’s parliament amid rising civil unrest.  Elsewhere, the Russians did some chest-thumping today by announcing the development of a ‘doomsday plane.’  What is this?  A nuclear-powered aircraft that can remain in the skies overhead 24/7/365 armed with nuclear weapons?  That would be something.  Meanwhile, we learned today that HUNTER BIDEN’S art agent has had DEEP TIES to communist China since 2014.  Say it ain’t so, drooling Joe!  All this talk about ‘ethics’ regarding Hunter Biden’s crooked dealings is nothing more than BULLSHIT.
  67. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– France announced that it warned the United States back in 2015 about the COVID-19 experiments going on in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Did the U.S. take note of the warning?  It seems not.   Likewise, Rep. Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, says of the Chi-Vi that ‘COVID-19 is part of the Chi-Coms unrestricted biowarfare program against the United States.’  It is getting close to time when we should light these communist SOBs up with as many neutron bombs as we can muster.  Right on cue, drooling Joe Biden plans to keep travel restrictions, i.e., mask requirements, in place citing the various COVID-19 variants.  Hey, Joe!  How about closing the f**king southern border?   (Note- none of us believe that Joe Biden can tell his ass from a hole in the ground.  Yes, that’s cruel, we know it, but so apropos).
  68. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– A national debate continues over the wearing/not wearing of masks in schools as the first day of instruction draws closer.  However, we learned today that on Friday, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki said that the White House is ‘NOT mandating Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations for White House staff.’  Wow.  What’s good enough for them is good enough for us.   Elsewhere, as the war against the unvaccinated continues, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says the ‘ban on the unvaccinated is akin to segregation.’  Amen.  In other Chi-Vi news, the Veterans Administration becomes the first federal agency requiring EVERY health care employee to be vaccinated for Wuhan Virus Crisis. 
  69. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– California will now require proof of vaccination for the China Virus from ALL state workers no matter who you are.   Regarding the Chi-Com Beijing Bug, a new Rasmussen Poll says that public opinion of the media’s COVID-19 coverage has soured since President Donald J. Trump left the White House.   Elsewhere, Pfizer and Moderna- according to a report- are going to expand their ongoing studies into Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines for kids aged 5-to-11.  The kids don’t need the damned vaccines, folks.
  70. 2021 Monday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Wisconsin GOP lawmakers are now promising a forensic audit of the 2020 Elections in their state.  We know a great deal of election fraud occurred in the Cheese Head State in the hours post-Election Day.
  71. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is demanding that citizenship for the DREAMERS- illegal aliens brought here as brats- must be included in the $3.5 trillion budget bill.  Oh, really? 
  72. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, has unveiled a new bill today, the “Free Britney Act” in honor of pop star Britney Spears who is trapped in a conservatorship run by her father.  We hope she is able to get out of this cruel and highly unnecessary imposition on her life and that perhaps her leeching father will end up in the slammer.  Meanwhile, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will create a reverse Robin Hood effect by which, the rich will get richer and the poor poorer.’  Amen.  Speaking of the infrastructure bill, President Donald J. Trump says that the GOP must wait on passing this mess until after the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Amen to this, too.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– A new poll says that a whopping 81-percent of the American people are alarmed by the growing presence of the Chi-Coms across the United States government as well as their presence in media and popular culture.  The American people also are fearful that the Chi-Coms are buying up vast tracts of U.S. farmland.  This crap must stop, and the Chi-Coms must be booted from everything into which, their evil tentacles have slithered. 
  74. 2021 Monday P: Political News III– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani continues to blast Joe Biden for cozying up with communists while the Cuban people continue protesting for their freedom! [xv]  In fact, over the weekend in Washington, D.C., a crowd of Cuban Americans showed up and raised their voices in front of the White House, demanding the Biden regime do something to help their friends, relatives, neighbors, and fellow citizens.  Speaking of protests, another good-sized crowd showed up in front of the Joestapo D.C. headquarters where more than 500 Capitol Hill protesters are still being held and abused.  For whatever reason, the D.C. Joestapo is trying to crush out the spirits of American patriots by abusing and mistreating these people who six months after the ‘incident’ are still being denied bail.  Whatever happened to bail reform? 
  75. 2021 Monday Q: Political News IV– Rep. Tom Emmer, R-MN 6th congressional district, head of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) guarantees that the GOP is going to retire U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D-CA 12th congressional district, ‘PERMANENTLY.’  Man, she needs to be retired now.  The nonagenarian, disheveled, lemon-sucking speaker should have been retired years ago.  We hope you are able to keep your word on this.  We would rather see Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, DS-MD 5th congressional district, running the show.  
  76. 2021 Monday R: Political News V– Tomorrow is the beginning of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s Stalinist show trial- the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots Select Committee- and all eyes are on Washington, D.C. for the SHOW TRIAL OF THE CENTURY!  Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, 23rd congressional district, MUST PULL Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, from the select committee.  We agree.  IF Leader McCarthy fails to do this, AICPENDBLOG.COM members in California will work at getting him out in November 2022.  In other news, Donald Trump Jr. is leading in favorability polls.   (Leader McCarthy did label Kinzinger and Cheney as little more than “Pelosi Republicans.”  How true.  Vote this scum out of office).
  77. 2021 Monday S: Miscellaneous News I– A New Jersey woman continues to suffer daily fines of $250 for putting out signs that are derogatory of enfeebled Joe Biden in her front yard.  Where can the AICPENDBLOG.COM send money to help you continue putting out these patriotic signs?  In other miscellaneous news, Chef Lilah Paulikovich of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day says that over the weekend when she was citing VAERS on our Twitter page that a reader said you ‘can’t take everything the federal Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System says.’  That left her somewhat flabbergasted as she said to this individual that ‘you liberals drop to your knees in front of big government on everything else it says so why not VAERS?’  No answer to her question.  Isn’t it amazing how libs always pick and choose which government entities they choose to follow or quote?
  78. 2021 Monday T: Economic News– Bitcoin’s rise has helped to lift all other cryptocurrencies up in value although the ‘Tether’ cryptocurrency is being investigated for possible bank fraud.  Elsewhere, Dutch company Philips beats Q2 forecasts ahead of respirator device recall.  In other economic news, Irish budget airlines Ryanair projects 100 million passengers this year.  Even though they have had some downturns, they are bullish on their future.
  79. 2021 Monday U: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Noted communist financier George Soros has funded more than $1 million to help ‘Defund the Police’ efforts across the United States.  When the hell is Black Ops going to run this bastard to earth and whack him?  Enough is flipping enough already.  In other news, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, DS-NY, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, is questioning the neutrality of the Empire State’s prosecutors who are investigating the cretin for a variety of crimes such as sexual assault, killing nursing home residents by seeding facilities with Chi-Vi-infected patients, and other crimes.  We hope to see the governor wearing an orange jump suit sometime soon.  Elsewhere, lawyers for so-called ‘QAnon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley are trying to get their client released now that he is suffering from mental illness due to his ongoing mistreatment in the Joestapo jail in Washington, D.C.  LET THESE PEOPLE OUT OF PRISON NOW- this is not America.  IF it is, you are behaving like the federal government did back when the accused assassins of President Abraham Lincoln were mistreated and tortured.  This is NOT good.
  80. 2021 Monday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– House Democrats are unifying behind their goal of dirtying the souls of EVERY American by stripping away the Hyde and Helms Amendments that prohibit using taxpayer dollars to fund abortions in the United States (Hyde Amendment) and abroad (Helms Amendment).  WTF do the taxpayers have to fund abortions for women both here in the United States and across the world.  WTF is wrong with these evil people?  They are putting bullseyes on their backs, that’s for sure.  (Note- the Democrats and the RINOs reap big rewards from money culled from the sale of fetal body parts that end up in their hip pockets via political donations).
  81. 2021 Monday W: Big Tech News– In an all-too common occurrence, hackers hacked into What’s App and got the information from approximately 1,500 U.S. government employees as well as from journalists and activists.  It’s almost as if BIG TECH permits this kind of crap to happen.   Elsewhere, Amazon.com is pushing to get individual apartment keys from building superintendents so as to enter people’s apartments ostensibly to leave people’s packages inside.  Wow.  What could go wrong with this?
  82. 2021 Monday X: Natural Disasters News– Due to a massive sandstorm raging in Utah, at least seven people were killed in a massive vehicle pileup and numerous other people injured.  Elsewhere, five firefighters who suffered fire burns in the Devil’s Creek, Montana, are recovering.  God bless you, folks!
  83. 2021 Monday Y: Sports News I– A U.S. medical student has won an Olympics first and won GOLD in fencing.  She beat a Russian out.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Army Lt. Amber English won a GOLD medal in skeet shooting.  In other Olympics news, four new sports are debuting this year: karate, surfing, skateboarding, and competitive climbing.   Sadly, viewing numbers for the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics are way, way down.  Maybe get rid of the WOKE bullshit? 
  84. 2021 Monday Z: U.S. Military News– As all hell continues breaking across Afghanistan, the U.S. military says that it will support its Afghan allies with continued airstrikes against Taliban and al-Qaida targets.  Light ‘em up.
  85. 2022 Tuesday: I would love to sit down with “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, the soon-to-be ex-representative from Wyoming and tell this incredibly stupid bi**h that the more she and her cronies go after President Donald J. Trump, the stronger they make him and his movement.  I know Democrats who want to see Joe Biden relegated to the dumpster fire of history and President Trump and pro-America politicians and bureaucrats returned to the White House and government.  Sadly, when people are as ignorant as are “Lyin’ Liz” and Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, they cannot see the path before them, only the one behind them, the one they cannot interpretate properly.  We, the American people are tired of these lying scumbags and will go to the ends of the Earth to get every single one of them out of office beginning with “Lyin’ Liz.”  You can count on it.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0903 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sand, Verbenas, and Red Rocks.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Beach Boys’ wunderkind, Brian Wilson, “Pet Sounds Live,” came out on June 12, 2002.  (Note- we at the AICPENDBLOG.COM occasionally get our dates mixed up, this we have two albums that appear earlier than several of the previous offerings- it is what it is, please oblige us.  Thank you).  This album features the complete “Pet Sounds” album performed in its entirety in Great Britain earlier in the year.  Once again, the sensational composer has a stellar cast of musicians accompanying him and the album from 1966 appears in its glorious entirety in the way Wilson wanted it to appear.   There are 14 tunes here (16 on the Japanese exclusive release later in the year which includes what we would think are the encore tunes) which are startlingly enchanting recreation of a glorious album from an equally glorious time.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite haunt for music and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure; we think you will be glad that you did.  Enjoy.

202. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 21, 2022

Friends, we have said for years now that there is but one way in which this country can deal with the illegal alien invasion- militarize the southern border. We believe minefields, electrified fencing, razor wire, obstacles in the middle of the Rio Grande River right down the dividing line between Mexico and the United States must be emplaced.

[v]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 307,366 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 96,712 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xi]       
  63. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.321 per gallon, $2.983 in Florida, $4.081 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Colorado: $3.531.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Morocco: $4.455 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,549,227,505,742 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  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 South Korea, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Canada with $120 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Amazing as it might seem to inattentive readers, today is Day No. 120 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 26 since her one and only visit to the border just so she could say, “I’ve been to the border” (but sure as hell have not gone back nor will go back).   The American people deserve better than this cackling hen, this braying jackass, this cawing crow, this howling jackal, this gibbering hyena to be in charge of the most important job in the country: protecting the American people by securing the border from the dregs of the Third World yet ‘Willie Brown’s mattress’ won’t do her flipping job.  Below, you will see the statistics for the Biden Border tribulation as compiled by One America News:
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Thanks to OAN, here are the current stats for the Biden Border Holocaust: (1) Cost this Day for caring for the tidal wave rolling over us from the Third World: $563,965,120.  Just this day, people, imagine what good this money could do for the American people.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the filth from the Third World: $220,838,002,688.  Yes, this number is correct.  The Democrats would rather spend this money on foreign invaders than on those for whom they claim to care: women, girls, blacks, Latinos, gays, trannys, and Muslims.  Next, (3) here is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed into the U.S. year- 2,263,412.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE LOW ESTIMATE of illegals said to be in the United States: 36,263,412. [xv]  We disagree with this last number: since 2009 when the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day first began tapping out our initial posts, we estimated the number of illegals in the country as between 35-50 million.  However, fast forward 12 years, we believe that number is closer to 75-100 million illegals.  IF we deported all the illegals back to their ratholes, rents and mortgages would plummet, jobs would increase as would wages, our children, grand-children, and great-grand-children would receive better educations, crime would drop, and hospitals and medical centers would provide better service.  However when you have 75-100 million sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats, everything goes to hell.  ROUND THEM UP, IMPRISON THEM, BUILD THE WALL, AND THEN DEPORT THEM ALL.  Our nation is in danger of being overwhelmed by the castoffs of the world’s S-hole countries.
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district says that the Biden regime and the Democrats are ‘shirking their constitutional duty’ by not getting the border under control.   Speaking of the border, we learned today that cases of the Chi-Vi in the Rio Grande Valley are up by a shocking 900-percent.  Shut down the border.  NOW!
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the land of the Chi-Coms, a massive flood in the middle portion of the country has left dozens dead and tens of thousands homeless.  Sucks to be them.   Elsewhere, effete French President Emanuel Macron is calling for an investigation into whether Morocco is using Israeli Pegasus spyware to monitor his phone calls.  Speaking of France, Paris is launching its new controversial Chi-Vi vaccine passports across the nation- no shots, no participation in normal life.  Mark of the Beast?  Beginning to look that way, folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new poll from Trafalgar says that a vast majority of Americans believe taking the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu should be a matter of personal choice and is a matter of personal choice.  Yet Democrats continue trying to steamroll the American people into taking this questionable crap even when the federal VAERS website points out the thousands of deaths and healthcare crises associated with it.  (Yup, we expect the FBI will come banging on the door at some point).  Meanwhile, Liz Harrington- President Donald J. Trump’s spokesperson- said that ‘the Biden regime has NEVER sought help from President Trump on promoting the COVID-19/Chi-Com Flu vaccines.’  Hmmm.
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Here’s something truly fascinating: communist George Soros and Bill Gates have bought a major COVID-19 testing company.  Now, we can speculate as to why?  We believe it’s to help the Chi-Coms in their ongoing bid to collect the DNA of all Americans for future nefarious use.   Speaking of the vaccines, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is defending the rights of Americans to refuse the Bat Flu vaccines.  In other news related to the Wuhan Lab-generated pandemic, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has ‘lost his credibility.’  Good thing that Senator Rand Paul sent a request for a criminal referral against the diminutive doctor to the U.S. Department of Justice seeing as how Doc Fauci lied to Congress on more than one occasion.
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News-   Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers, Republican, is calling for a decertification of the 2020 Presidential Election as the evidence of massive voter fraud and corruption negates the election.  This is bombshell news, news that is sending Democrat politicians howling mad into the wilderness for 100 years.  What was certified has been proven to be inaccurate and the next step is for the Arizona House to submit their request to decertify the most corrupt election in the history of the United States and get the ball rolling to get usurper Joe Biden out of the White House and into an orange jumpsuit.    Likewise, Texas state Republicans are seeking to conduct their own audit of the 13th largest counties where electoral shenanigans occurred.
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: 2020 Election Audit– Meanwhile, as steam begins to build in Pennsylvania for an election audit in that crooked state, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, DS-PA, is doing everything he can to prevent voting machines and software from being turned over to Republican lawmakers.  IF this was the MOST SECURE election in the history of the country, then why NOT hand the requested data and devices over to the GOP?  There is so much information coming out of the Keystone State showing the election reeked of fraud that it would be a good thing to investigate the Democratic Party’s shenanigans.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden News I– Apparently, Joe Biden had some sort of ‘town hall’ in Ohio earlier today, one in which, he was incoherent as ever.  How long can this nightmare continue with a feeble-minded president who would rather offer ice cream to young girls than try to do his job?  What a national and global embarrassment.   It would be nice if they could sync his decrepit mind with the earpiece directing him.  Zombie!
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– In news we truly don’t believe, the Biden regime’s Department of Education has said it will ‘back off’ trying to stuff Criminal, uh, Critical Race Theory down the throats of America’s students.  Oh, really? 
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News I– Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, and Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, have co-authored a bill with which to protect ALL law enforcement officers from having to purchase liability insurance to protect themselves from civil lawsuits launched by thugs against them.  Next, Democrats are proposing a bill that will demand that all women ages 18-21 register for Selective Service, i.e., the draft.  Speaking of Democrats, a new poll says that ONLY 22-percent of Arizona Democrats would vote for Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the 2022 Democratic Party Primary.  This is because she seems to be a person of conscience who believes in following the dictates of the U.S. Constitution and not the loony tunes BS coming out of the Biden regime or out of the puckered puss of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi. 
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News II– How about some more Democrat hypocrisy: Iowa Rep. Cindy Axne, 3rd congressional district, swore she would ‘never accept corporate PAC money’ and now she has.  Wow.   Anyhow, she now is under increasing pressure from the voters of that great state either to honor her pledge or to step down and let someone else with more scruples to do the job.  Speaking of corrupt Democrats, Rep. Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district and known paramour of a Chi-Com agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, is under investigation for corruption, fraud, and abuse of office by using campaign funds for his and his wife’s personal use.  Orange jumpsuit time coming soon.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News III– A new Rasmussen poll says that a vast majority of Americans would rather see a probe into Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots than they do the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, the bogus ‘insurrection’ staged and most likely set in motion by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Speaking of the nonagenarian speaker, she booted TWO of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s picks for her shoddy January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots Select Committee: Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, and Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district which led an angry Leader McCarthy to pull ALL Republicans from the faux select committee.  Closet Democrat Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, went out there and blasted Leader McCarthy for playing politics.  What the hell do we have to do to send this bozo packing?   Anyhow, Rep. Cheney said that ‘McCarthy is undermining the select committee.’ 
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News IV– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani has launched a new legal defense fund, the “Freedom Fund” to help those beset by crooked politicians and attorneys seeking to do patriots wrong.  In other pressing political news, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY, says the ‘Republicans will play no part in raising the debt ceiling.   Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers are targeting colleges and universities doling out abortifacients to students.   Elsewhere, Lt. General (Ret.) Keith Kellogg and Brigadier General Robert Spalding (Ret.) say that current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley- a political hack if one ever existed- should step down from his post.  Milley is more concerned with fighting ‘white supremacism’ than he is in doing battle with the People’s Liberation Army in communist China.  What a disgrace.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Political News V– Republicans in Michigan have finally stripped Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of her COVID-19 emergency powers.  Speaking of “Gravel Gertie,” we learned today that the so-called hit team that was going to kidnap her and sell her to the Chi-Coms or Russians or whoever most likely was full of FBI agents and informants, so the question immediately arises- were these patriots entrapped by the feds?  Rather sounds as though they were… Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury said today that ONLY 6.5-percent of the $46 billion set aside to help Americans affected by COVID-19 to pay their rent has been utilized.  Folks, this is how it ALWAYS goes- money is stuffed into various programs that almost always seems to find its way back into the hip pockets of the nomenklatura, i.e., the Democrats and their lackeys.  Wow.  Next, that little milquetoast is at it again: fired Deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe says that the formal accusation of Trump ally Mr. Tom Barrack could ‘open a Pandora’s box for the 45th president.’  Uh-huh, sure, Andy, sure, if you say so.  What are you now- 0 and 100?  Shut the hell up.
  79. 2021 Wednesday U: Moron News I– Creator of the extremely racist 1619 Project Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones said one of the stupidest statements any of us here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day have heard in ages and that is that ‘among Western nations, Cuba is the most equal.’  You are our MORON of the DAY there, Ms. Bozo the Clown.
  80. 2021 Wednesday V: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Convicted sexual deviate Harvey Weinstein is set to begin his next trial in Los Angeles, California, following his transfer to that city.
  81. 2021 Wednesday W: National Security News– CISA- the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency- announced today that since 2009-2013, Chi-Com hackers have targeted the flow of oil through at least 23 major pipelines.   Elsewhere, the CIA has tapped its top ‘Bin Laden hunter’ to get to the bottom of the so-called ‘Havana syndrome,’ the one in which, U.S. diplomatic and military personnel are targeted by sonic attacks.
  82. 2021 Wednesday X: U.S. Senate News I– As things continue going from bad to worse for slobbering old Joe Biden, a bipartisan group of senators unveiled the new National Security Powers Act with which to strip the so-called ‘46th president’ of his abilities to wage war around the globe.  While we think this is a good thing, it should not be so constraining as to make future sound-of-mind and fit-of-body presidents incapable of protecting the country.  We don’t want to see presidents transformed into feckless prime ministers.  We do think, however, that before America enters a war anywhere around the globe, it must be a DECLARED WAR with the entire nation engaged in the fight.
  83. 2021 Wednesday Y: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump said that the ‘U.S. is on the path to communism what with the federal government and BIG TECH censoring everything and everyone.’
  84. 2021 Wednesday Z: California State News– As Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom faces imminent recall in September’s recall election, his good buddy, “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces she is going to return home to campaign on his behalf.  Yup, that’s really going to help the outgoing governor, “Kooky.”  Speaking of the recall, gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner says he, she, it is going on a bus tour.  Also, it appears as though Larry Elder will qualify to be on the recall election ballot.  If he does, many of us will be voting for him.  Another Republican running for the governor’s seat is former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said today that ‘Governor Newsom is actively encouraging the homeless to relocate to the once-Golden State.’  Yikes.  
  85. 2021 Wednesday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3579 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 10, 11, 19, 30, 36, and Mega 07.  Out of 95,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were 11 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,374 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #865 with a jackpot of $161 million up for grabs: 27, 28, 44, 67, 68, and Powerball 11.  Out of 71,592 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 41 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $464 apiece.
  86. 2022 Thursday: Welcome to the Thursday edition of the NEWS of the DAY, past and present.   Friends, we have said for years now that there is but one way in which this country can deal with the illegal alien invasion- militarize the southern border.  We believe minefields, electrified fencing, razor wire, obstacles in the middle of the Rio Grande River right down the dividing line between Mexico and the United States must be emplaced.  We must make numerous rows of obstructions as well as preventative measures against tunnels such as tubing placed down in the ground that in the first sign of digging can channel flammable materials underground which can then be ignited.  We must place military forces returning from overseas along the U.S.-Mexico border giving them a year’s tour by which, they can begin reintegration into American society instead of being dumped on the streets by the likes of General Milley.  We believe seeding the river with alligators and perhaps even piranha fish and the deserts with additional rattlesnakes, scorpions, Gila monsters, and poisonous spiders would help halt the tidal wave as would the cutting off of all water supplies.  If we are to survive as a nation, we must expel these invaders including the brats.  These people are third-class citizens, used and abused by Americans.  We see them languishing in parking lots and wandering the streets.  NO ONE WANTS THEM.  People throw garbage at them, insult them, even spit on them.  Deport them and deport them now because when the GOP comes back, to hell with the immigration lawyers, the American people will join the vigilante movements by which, they will round up and forcibly- forcibly– deport all of them and the lawyers, too.  Enough is enough.  The time is fast approaching…Chef E.C. McCardle.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0898 a 24” x 36” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Arizona.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys released a somewhat humongous box set: “Hawthorne, CA- Birthplace of a Musical Legacy” on May 22, 2001.  This 2-CD set has approximately 57 tunes on it, big hits, not-so-big-hits, B-sides, unreleased, and archival tunes all lovingly compiled by Capitol Records with all sorts of additions with which to sweeten the pot.  This album was yet another gem for diehard Beach Boys fans as it contained more rarities if one can believe that that is even remotely possible.  IF you have not yet brought the music of fun-sun-surf-hot chicks, fast cars, motorcycles, and all the rest of the music that made our summers so much f**king fun back in the 1960s and 1970s and even beyond, this is the way in which new fans and old-timers like us to accomplish this necessary task. Seek it out, don’t fret the cost, and buy it now- you will be glad you did.

  60. 2017 Sunday: Much to the delight of millions, President Donald J. Trump tweets a meme showing him wrestling and whooping CNN, the fake news, communist news network.  Needless to say, liberals across the United States are outraged and Twitter BLOWS UP!  Say it ain’t so!  Meanwhile, the World Health Organization, the corrupt body led by Chinese-backed Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus declares the Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of the Congo “over” after the deaths of four people.
  61. 2018 Monday: British divers in Thailand discover the 12 boys of the soccer team and their coach marooned in the Tham Luong Nang Non cave complex.  They had gone missing and were trapped in there due to rising monsoon waters and would remain there a while longer before rescuers could free them.
  62. 2019 Tuesday: At a migrant center for Sub-Saharan Africans in Tripoli, Libya, an airstrike kills at least 40 of these people and wounds countless others with the Libyan National Army receiving the lion’s share of the blame.
  63. 2020 Thursday: Today, the Trump administration reported that the unemployment numbers fell by more than 2 points to 11.1% and new jobs added came in at 4,800,000.  The economy is recovering even though the Blue State governors and mayors are doing everything possible to TANK the economy.  Wall Street numbers were excellent, too.  Here is the DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,827.36, UP 92.39 points (0.36%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 10,207.63, UP 53.00 points (0.52%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,130.01, UP 14.15 points (0.45%).  Joe Biden, the former VP, criticizes Trump on all of this.  The Biden campaign raised $141 million in the last month while the Trump campaign raised $131 million.  Polling suggests that Biden leads Trump by about 10 points, 49.3 to 41.00.  We shall see.
  64. 2020 Thursday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu numbers for the planet:  10,694,288 confirmed cases, UP 181,905 new cases, 516,210 confirmed deaths, UP 3,879 deaths, and 5,480,394 confirmed recoveries, UP by another 93,145.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 2,741,841 confirmed cases, UP 3,728, 130,147 confirmed deaths, UP 622, and 844,233 confirmed recoveries, UP 2,771.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 244,442 confirmed cases, 6,163 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 946 confirmed cases, 18 confirmed deaths, and 736 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the numbers for Washington state: 34,919 confirmed cases, 1,339 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Thursday B: As the communist Chinese crackdown on the free peoples of Hong Kong, we are no longer able to get the true numbers of the Kung Flu on the mainland.  Here are today’s stats for the communist mainland (just for the hell of it): 83,542 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and like U.S. Blue State governors, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  That’s communism for you, which is why we stand against them and demand a return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as a FREE and INDEPENDENT China and demand their return to the U.N. and a return of their seat on the UN Security Council.
  66. 2020 Thursday C: The FBI swooped in on Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer at her New Hampshire home.  They arrested Ghislaine Maxwell and hit her with six federal counts which if convicted, will send her to prison for more than 30 years.   Meanwhile, the John Roberts’ Supreme Court handed President Donald J. Trump a BIG WIN by telling the House Democrats that IF they get an opportunity to see Robert S. Mueller’s grand jury records in the now disproven Trump-Russia collusion case, it won’t be until well after the November 3, 2020, Election.  Finally, Seattle PD finishes the dismantling of the hellhole CHOP, the Capital Hill Occupied Protest, formerly CHAZ, where two blacks were shot to death, others shot and wounded, numerous rapes, beatings, violent assaults, arsons, and break-ins were a regular occurrence.  The leader of ‘Chopistan,’ RAZ Simone vanished into the winds.   
  67. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 183,830,920 confirmed cases, +403,036, 3,979,322 confirmed deaths, +7,728 and 168,262,590 confirmed recoveries, +32,647.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,578,931 confirmed cases, UP 17,528 from yesterday’s reporting, 620,971 confirmed deaths, UP 326, [v] and 29,071,515 confirmed recoveries, UP 19,428.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vi]  
  68. 2021 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 303,065 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 156,584 deaths  
  69. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,820,094 confirmed cases, 63,759 confirmed deaths, and 2,074,613 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,380,170 confirmed cases, 37,963 confirmed deaths, and 2,211,622 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,807 confirmed cases, 518 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 454,722 confirmed cases, 5,987 confirmed deaths, and 226,644 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wyoming: they have 62,445 confirmed cases, 747 confirmed deaths, and 61,084 confirmed recoveries. [vii]   
  70. 2021 Friday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 842,371 confirmed cases, 6,429 (DOWN) confirmed deaths, and 833,727 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Swaziland, 135th country on the list: 19,084 cases of the virus, 678 confirmed deaths and 18,107 confirmed recoveries. [viii]

[xii]        
  72. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.288 per gallon, $3.009 in Florida, $4.016 in Hawaii, and $3.776 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Rhode Island: $3.005.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Australia: $4.071 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,475,815,541,842 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Kuwait, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Sweden with $47 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position.
  73. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 101 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border with NO resolution of the crisis and Day No. 7 since her brief quickie trip to El Paso, Texas, where she did a photo op.  However, other governors are working to solve the problem what with Governor Mike DeWine, RINO-OH, sending 200 National Guardsmen to help Texas contend with the catastrophe unfolding down there.   Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is encouraging landowners along the U.S.-Mexico border to report ALL damages to their property caused by the illegal alien invasion to the Division of Emergency Management so the state can begin the process of defending the nation and helping the property owners.  In other border news, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says the ‘Democrats are defunding the border.’  Amen.
  74. 2021 Friday GForeign News / Overseas News I– Sadly, as soon as the last flight carrying U.S. troops from Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan, looters rolled in and began ransacking the large base.  Why the U.S. did not blow the base up and make it unusable is beyond us but that’s Obama-Biden for you, same procedure as when the U.S. cut and ran from Iraq.   We at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day expect that the Russians, Chi-Coms, or even the lowlife Iranians will roll in and occupy the base.  It would make sense for Kabul to invite either the Russians back in or to welcome the Chi-Coms who would guarantee their security while raping their country.  It’s inevitable.
  75. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– After Chi-Com thug Xi Jinping celebrated 100 years of brutal dictatorship by the Chinese Communist Party and proclaimed, ‘reunification with Taiwan is coming and soon,’ many are now shivering that WAR is coming to the world and far sooner than expected.  Folks, the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes a couple of things: first- although most likely successful at some point, invading Taiwan is also going to prove to be a debacle, a graveyard for several million Chi-Com soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines.  It will be humiliating the loss of life and the shattering of the ethos surrounding the Chi-Com military buildup and its invincibility.  Second, we believe that during this period of NO TRUMP in the White House, the time is now for the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, the Iranians, the North Koreans and other trash to make a go for it.  What the hell is Joe Biden and Kamala Harris going to do about it?  NOTHING.  (Some might say we’re living in the “End Times”).
  76. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Trump adviser Jason Miller says that the Supreme Court’s ruling on Arizona’s election laws demonstrate that Americans want to get elections and voting rights correct except when President Donald J. Trump is on the ballot.   Meanwhile, Democrats continue sniveling and whining about 2020 Election audits, the GOP-controlled Pennsylvania state senate is gearing up to conduct their own Arizona-style forensic 2020 Election audit so they can learn the truth.  Of course, Democrats don’t want this.  Wah, wah, wah.  This is what you get for stealing elections, the American people won’t stand for it.
  77. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News I– Fresh off from watching Law and Order SVU in the basement at the White House, Joe Biden wants to create a SVU in the U.S. military so victims of sexual assault can get some sort of resolution to what seems to be an ongoing problem.   In other more shocking news, Joe Biden is encouraging 9 million illegal aliens to become U.S. citizens which is WHY the GOP must go out there and make the effort to woo these people to the Republican Party.  Yes, we must employ these disgusting tactics to carry out the strategic aims of getting the Democrats to become the deporters-in-chief.
  78. 2021 Friday K: Political News I– Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23 congressional district ‘should not play into the Dems January 06, 2021, select committee.’  In other political news- and anyone above the level of grade 5 idiot could have told the Democrats this- Democrats are now sweating bullets about the already fading chances of “Kooky Kamala” Harris for 2024.  They are now realizing what Californians already know and that is she can’t win an election without the fix being in (meaning help from Willie Brown) and have no clue as how to either make the phony more appealing or to offload her.   The only good thing about her and Joe ‘winning’ the 2020 Presidential Election is that Californians were able to get her out of the state and make her the problem of the entire nation and not just the Golden State’s.  (Note- because elections are so fraudulent in California, she was able to achieve the few posts she did).
  79. 2021 Friday L: Political News II– Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-GA 11th congressional district, said today how shocking it is to see (embittered) Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, climb into political bed with nonagenarian, addled-brained House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, CPUSA-CA 12th congressional district.  (Note- rats always show their true colors when called out on the carpet and put in their place by becoming a true rat and going to work for the other side).
  80. 2021 Friday M: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court slapped down House Judiciary Committee Democrats who have been trying to get their grubby hands-on grand jury testimony compiled by corrupt special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.  They have been salivating since 2019 to see if evidence existed of President Donald J. Trump having lied to Mr. Mueller as to whether he was doing business with the Russkies or not.   Lower court rulings said the Democrats could get their hands on the testimony but today, the nation’s high court told them to f**k off.  About flipping time.   In other high court news, Associate Justices Clarence Thomas and Neil Gorsuch believe it’s time to take a fresh look at the 1964 watershed ruling of New York Times v. Sullivan that made it much more difficult for public figures to sue journalists for defamation, lies, and other depredations that are bogus.  Excellent.
  81. 2021 Friday N: Economic News– The jobs report for June 2021 is in and decrepit old Joe Biden is cackling about how great it is that 850,000 jobs were added to the economy.  Critics however point out that old Joe promised somewhere around 2.4 million new jobs as Americans returned to work.  However, with continued financial aid coming from the federal government, many younger, less eager workers are willing to return to work.  (Note- as inflation increases and everything- including food and energy- continue going up, fewer people will seek to return to work).   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district dismisses the job numbers and says as we do that ‘inflation is rising’ which it is and what’s worse- it’s a TAX on virtually everything.
  82. 2021 Friday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions #1673 Draw what with a $72 million on the line: 08, 31, 32, 34, 45, and Mega 19.  Out of 50,865 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $1,561,405.  The winning ticket was sold at Circle K in Anaheim, California, 92801.
  83. 2022 Saturday: You know, we believe the Chi-Coms despise our guts for saying that Taiwan is a NATION.  Taiwan IS a nation, will always be a nation, and no matter what that pompous toad of a thug Xi Jinping claims, will always be a NATION.  They are a FREE country and will continue being a FREE country as long as the world’s freedom-loving nations stand by them.  What do YOU think?  (Chi-Coms- don’t answer this question).

[iv] All of Guns ‘n’ Roses concerts were riots.  Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

Elsewhere, crackpot Senator Chris Murphy, DS-CT, launches a filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate in an effort to ramrod comprehensive gun control through in the wake of the massacre at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  (Note- Senator Murphy, since the shooter was a radical jihadist who committed his life to ISIS, wouldn’t it make more sense to filibuster so NO more flipping Muslims enter the frigging country?  Dumbass liberals).
  60. 2017 Thursday: In the still free bastion of democracy of Hong Kong, a new record price is set for a parking lot: $664,000.  That’s capitalism for you!  Elsewhere, in the Congressional Baseball Game at Washington Nationals baseball park, the Democrats deliver the Republicans a pounding in the charity game, winning by a final score of 11-2.  However, since Rep.

Mueller III’s phony investigation into purported “Trump-Russia collusion,” something the special counsel failed to find or to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.  Sadly, Manafort received seven years in prison on federal charges.  The poor man is a political prisoner, punished by the Democrats because he helped Donald Trump win the presidency.
  62. 2019 Saturday: The sports memorabilia world lights its hair on fire as a baseball jersey belonging to the world’s greatest Babe Ruth brings in a record $5.64 million at auction in New York City.  Stunning!  Elsewhere, Chi-Com stooge Carrie Lam- chief executive of Hong Kong- announces the suspension of the new extradition law that would send FREE Hong Kongens to mainland China for trial.  The protests have ground Beijing’s rule of the former British crown colony into the dust.  (Note- several months later, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu would arrive that would help Xi Jinping kill two birds with one stone- Hong Kong freedom fighters and U.S. President Donald J. Trump.  F**king diabolical).
  63. 2020 Monday: Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone warlord RAZ changed the name of the new utopic socialized crap hole from CHAZ to CHOP: Capitol Hill Organized Protest.  There, people tremble in fear that they might be beaten and/or evicted at any time while Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin, CPUSA-WA, pays it little mind and Gov. Jay Inslee- a loser if one ever existed- acts as though he knows nothing about it, a la Sergeant Schultz.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr make it known that the pending ‘tell-all’ book by John “Perpetual War” Bolton in which, he attacks his former boss, the current president, has not gone through the normal processes and could be in violation of long-standing federal policy.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds civil rights for homosexuals.  It is what it is.  Finally, President Trump informed the world that he is moving ahead with his planned Oklahoma City rally this upcoming Saturday, June 20, 2020.  The left is wailing, gnashing its teeth but the commander-in-chief is correct when he says, ‘all the fears of the Chinese bat flu went out the window when people were out in the streets rioting over the death of George Floyd but oh, no, Trump can’t hold any rallies because we must not take the chance of getting the Wuhan Virus.  Oh, please.  Here is the deal: 800,000 people have sought tickets to the 20,000-seat arena.  Period.  Joe Biden cannot match that.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 297,795 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 161,854 deaths

  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.226 per gallon, $2.966 in Florida, $3.972 in Hawaii, and $3.621 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Michigan: $3.162.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Zambia: $3.673 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,410,267,967,104 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Cayman Islands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xviii]
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 84 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘sofa,’ to be in charge of the border and to continue being a no-show.  How is it this woman still maintains this ‘job’ much less continues to serve as the faux vice president of the United States.  Hurry up with the election audits so we can boot this woman who schlepped her way to the top along with her boss out of office.  Enough is enough.  Speaking of “Kooky Kamala,” Democrats and Republicans alike are blasting her for taking selfies at a South Carolina vaccination center when she should be down at the border halting the tidal wave of illegal aliens from the Third World.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News releases the latest updates as to ILLEGAL ALIENS DATA.  First, the cost of caring for all these Untermensch as of today is $533,130,528.  Second, the cost so far this year of handling the illegal alien tsunami for 2021 is $181,355,085,824.  Third, the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year is 1,858,744 while fourth, the total number of illegal aliens estimated to be in the U.S. is 35,858,744.  Since the inception of our original blog site back in 2009, we have speculated that the number of illegals back then was anywhere between 35-to-50 million.  Now, we believe the number is closer to 75-to-100 million.  Let’s begin rounding them up, inserting microchips next to their hearts, and then booting them out of the country as quickly as possible.  We need Donald Trump to come back NOW.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In advance of the ‘Joe Biden’-Vladimir Putin summit tomorrow, Joe Biden says that he is going to ‘warn’ Putin in a conversation that could last up to five hours (which is bull crap- no way Joe can do it.  However, we expect that once in the room with their interpreters, Putin actually will be discussing issues with Joe Biden’s earpiece which most likely contains the voice of former regime leader Barack Hussein Obama).   Ahead of their summit, Putin says that Joe has much for which to answer when it comes as to WHY more than 450 people are languishing in D.C. lockups for their part in January 06, 2021, and WHY Ashli Babbitt was shot dead by a police officer.  In essence, what Putin is saying, is ‘look in the mirror at yourselves before you begin pointing the finger at us.’  (Note- we expect some issue will arise that will cancel the Obama-Putin Summit so Joe does not embarrass himself and our country.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II–  News arose today that suggests that Vladimir Putin will soon be annexing Belarus to the new Russian empire just as they continue applying pressure upon the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania and continue their war of aggression against Ukraine.  Meanwhile, patriotic Israelis stage a massive march through East Jerusalem as the new liberal government sends out legions of police to keep the ‘radicals’ in line.  These people are NOT radicals and Jerusalem- ALL OF IT- belongs to the Israeli people because God gave them the land more than 3,00 years ago in a covenant between Yahweh and His Chosen People.  March every day!  Regarding Israel, the Israeli Air Force had to strike some targets in Gaza after the criminal Palestinians launched a barrage of incendiary balloons across the border into Israel.  The Israeli fire authorities report the bottom-feeding rabble in Gaza ignited at least 20 fires.  Light ‘em up, Israel, light ‘em up.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Foreign News / Overseas News III-Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms sent 28 warplanes- including nuclear-capable bombers and fighters- into Taiwanese airspace in the largest show of force to date.  We hope Taiwan continues beefing up its defenses because in the coming war between the forces of the modern-day Chi-Com Nazis and the freedom-loving people of Free China- Taiwan- there is but one place to stand: on the side of free people.  We should have nuked the Chi-Coms back in 1950.  (Note- communist China expert Gordon Chang says Beijing’s military exercises are no ‘coincidence’).  Finally, Israeli ex-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says that ‘ignorant’ Ilhan Omar is ‘not worthy’ to be in Congress.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– New evidence continues to arise that shows what most Americans already know: COVID-19 was already in the U.S. by Christmas 2019.  (Note- the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges took care of one another’s problems: COVID-19 allowed the Chi-Coms to end the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong while the disease allowed the Democrats to get rid of President Donald J. Trump and to vilify his supporters by setting the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, into action.   In so doing, it permitted both to get rid of their enemies and to allow each one to cover for the other.  The capstone is that Vladimir Putin can now lambaste drooling Joe Biden for keeping the people locked up while hiding the identity of the cop who shot Ashli Babbitt.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II-In other Chi-Vi-related news, former CDC Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘arrogance’ of the Chi-Com scientists may have led to the disaster of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic destabilizing the world.  Finally, thanks to Red State’s brave reporting, we continue learning the truth that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic was indeed cooked up like methamphetamine in the Wuhan Institute of Virology for use as a biowarfare weapons.  If their stats are correct, the reason the Chi-Coms’ numbers are so low is that they were prepared for it in advance.
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– President Donald J. Trump continues ramping up pressure on the Keystone State to conduct an Arizona-style 2020 Election audit.
  79. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– GOP lawmakers seek to defund schools using the bogus and racist 1619 Project in its educational regimen.  Good.  In other news, Robert Bork Jr. says that ‘his father would be appalled that ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden is president.  Of course when Biden was on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, he eviscerated Bork’s father who was up for a SCOTUS nomination.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launches a new PAC with which to help worthy candidates in the fight to reclaim the U.S. House and Senate in 2022.  Moving on, it’s official: the GOP have introduced a bill to fire Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci for his mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis as well as his potential enrichment from his mistakes.
  80. 2021 Tuesday O: Business News– Wall Street ends DOWN over investor fears in anticipation of the coming report from the Federal Reserve.  In other business news, Southwest Airlines has had to cancel more than 1,000 flights due to technical issues but we think they were ‘hacked.’  Everyone else is so why not them?
  81. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas returns from a trip to Mexico.  We suspect he went there to clean up the mess made by ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris who takes nothing seriously but laughs at everything like the yammering jackal she is.  In other news, ‘Joe Biden’s’ proposed budget is $6 trillion, which will drive the U.S. deficit to the moon.  The senile old fool’s handlers are going to drive taxes up on the American people.  This is insanity, it’s akin to King John crushing the people and Robin Hood fighting back on behalf of the people.  In other regime news, Joe Biden wants to spend $100 million ANNUALLY to combat domestic terrorism.
  82. 2021 Tuesday Q: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– While conducting a turtle-nesting study in Florida, researchers come across $1.2 million worth of cocaine.   Next, the U.S. Department of Justice seeks to reinstate the death penalty against Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  Elsewhere, a judge rules that Harvey Weinstein can be sent to California to face a rape charge in the Golden State.
  83. 2021 Tuesday R: National Security News– Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel show that government documents reveal that there were numerous FBI agents involved in the events of January 06, 2021, ‘unindicted co-conspirators’ who helped organize the protests that day and then participated in leading them into the Capitol Building.  We have said countless times that what happened on January 06, 2021, was the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION carried out in the history of our country so as to bring down President Donald J. Trump, vilify his supporters, and then to place a Chi-Com-backed stooge into the White House.  This only reinforces what we believe and what we have been saying for months now.
  84. 2021 Tuesday S: Big Tech News– “Little Mark” Zuckerberg made one of the biggest (and stupidest) mistakes of his life when he tried to buy rights to Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2” for an undisclosed massive amount of money.  Roger Waters, creative fire behind the British band and writer of most of its songs said, ‘there is no F***ing way I am going to allow a F***ing POS like Zuckerberg to use MY song so he can brainwash young people.’  A supporter of Julian Assange, Waters the song was as important back then as it is now especially since Facebook is rapidly becoming a Big Brother-like entity spying on people around the globe, sucking up their data, and then doing its damnedest to control their minds.  God bless you, Roger; it’s good to know patriots and freedom fighters still exist.  As for Zuck, well, he can go F*** himself in the ass.
  85. 2021 Tuesday T: Religion News– U.S. Roman Catholic bishops are meeting to discuss the denying of communion to Pro-Death politicians.  The Holy Father Pope Francis ordered them NOT to deny communion to the abortion-loving, Marxist Democrats because in our view, Francis is a Marxist, too, and unfit to lead the church.  We hope the bishops excommunicate ALL Pro-Death politicians from the church.  Let them languish in Limbo.
  86. 2021 Tuesday U: Health and Medical Alerts– A new study reports that for about one-quarter of all survivors of the Chi-Vi, they develop other, much more chronic issues down the road.  The Chi-Coms claim their pandemic did not originate in their biowarfare program but folks, every scrap of news we hear connected to the ‘VID tells us one thing and one thing only: the Chi-Coms cooked this crap up and then infected the rest of the world.   E-V-I-L.
  87. 2021 Tuesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, she with the lopsided breasts, says that the House will proceed with its ‘investigation’ into the (FALSE FLAG OPERATION) of January 06, 2021.  As we all recall, the crowd of peaceful Trump supporters was infiltrated by Antifa thugs and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter.  The rest as they say is ‘history.’  In other House news, loser Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district says that has unlimited power to spy on the American people and to seize any records he so desires even as he raises a stink about the Bill Barr DOJ’s subpoenas for phone records belonging to Democrat lawmakers.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is pushing ‘Mumbles” Pelosi to strip Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MI 5th congressional district, of her seat on the House Intel Committee because of her hatred of Israel and her love of all things ‘jihad.’
  88. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to take the seat of now-Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.  A likely future nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court- should “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden stick around long enough to get to nominate a pick- Jackson was confirmed by a vote of 53-44.  In other U.S. Senate news, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says that ‘Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management- Tracy Stone-Manning- should be booted over her support or involvement in past acts of eco-terrorism.  The Democrats NEVER possess a scrap of shame for their crazed, left-wing, Marxist actions.  Shame.  Elsewhere, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says ‘U.S. servicemembers are complaining about the overly WOKE Pentagon’s policies.’  Amen.  As they should… He is also concerned that the Chi-Coms will be harvesting the DNA of Olympians at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.  Finally, the Senate Judiciary Committee is debating the House Bill H.R. 6 that will grant amnesty and citizenship to 3 million frigging illegal aliens without determining whether there are thugs and rapists among them.  (Note- the Democrats truly hate the people they lead).
  89. 2021 Tuesday X: U.S. Senate News II– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY, says that there must be grave consequences for the purposeful leaking of a person’s tax records.  Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” he says there is NO WAY that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden will get someone onto the U.S. Supreme Court in 2024.  Another denizen of the U.S. Senate, Senator “Cho-Mo Bob” Menendez, DS-NJ, says that ‘Joe Biden must treat Vladimir Putin like the ‘killer’ he is.  Good for you, Bob, good for you.  Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘the Biden regime’s blanket amnesty covers dangerous criminals, too.’
  90. 2021 Tuesday Y: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump names Liz Harrington as his new spokesperson as Jason Miller is taking over as the CEO of a new tech start-up company.  The company owns one of the social media platforms the 45th president is considering appropriating with which to get his message out to the American people and his supporters around the world.
  91. 2021 Tuesday Z: Economic News– A new Trafalgar poll says that MORE Americans blame ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden than they do President Donald J. Trump for the rising inflation now afflicting the country.
  92. 2021 Tuesday AA: Environmental News I– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows calls the G7 Summit’s agreement on ‘climate change actions’ a terrible deal.
  93. 2021 Tuesday BB: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, sends a powerful message to the laughing hyena ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris when he tells her the ‘border crisis is no laughing matter.’  The Lone Star State’s governor is going to seek contributions so that his state can continue building the wall to halt the ongoing flow of millions of ravenous illegal aliens roaring over the Southwest frontier like a cloud of locusts.  The state is also encouraging all states who can spare law enforcement officers to send them to Texas to help guard the frontier.  Governor Abbott- where can we send the checks?  (Note- all the cops run out of cities that won’t support them will be heading to Texas and Arizona, we suspect).  However, a government watchdog says, ‘Joe Biden’s halt of wall construction does not violate U.S. law.’ Speaking of Governor Abbott, President Donald J. Trump has accepted his invitation to tour the southern border with him and other officials on the last Wednesday at the end of the month.
  94. 2021 Tuesday CC: Observation of the Day– IF the United States was filled with as many WHITE SUPREMACISTS as Democrats claim, don’t you think it strange that during the eight years of the ‘first black president,’ no one- especially NO WHITE PERSON- ever tried to assassinate him?  The Secret Service isn’t that good.  However, had someone tried- or worse- had the Democrats conducted a FALSE FLAG OPERATION whereby they picked some random loser and had him or her make an attempt on the life of the 44th president, can you imagine the political bludgeoning they could have carried out on ‘white males?’  We will say this: it should be clear that true political violence is no longer a problem in this country whereas mob violence at street level is.  But in a nation that saw Presidents Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy shot dead as well as two attempts on the life on President Gerald R. Ford and the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan, no attempt on the life of an American president has occurred in 41 years.  In the last century, we saw the assassinations of Senator Robert F. Kennedy as well as that of famed civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. but no attempts on three highly popular/unpopular presidents depending upon whom you ask- George W. Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, and Donald J. Trump- since the turn of the century tells us one thing.  Much of the violence we see is ginned up by the left and what’s clear is, we believe that the left was trying to gin up someone among their ranks to do the unthinkable to President Trump yet were unable to find a fall guy or worse- coerce a patsy- into carrying out their loony-tunes agenda of vilification followed by violence.  No, we say, ‘WHITE SUPREMACISM’ no longer is around but there sure is a whole lotta ‘BLACK SUPREMACISM’ afflicting our country like cancer gobbling away at one’s privates.  Let’s do something to end this stupidity.   Democrats, can we set RACE ATTACKS aside?  This is going to destroy our country and even worse, you pathetic bottom-feeding scumbags know it and yet you persist.  Let me know what you think.  Thank you- Chef Vicky.
  95. 2021 Tuesday DD: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1668 with a $30 million pot on the line.  18, 22, 27, 38, 52, and Mega 11.  Out of 50,948 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $383 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

It is a shame to watch a band undergoing problems, but such was the agonizing lot of the Beach Boys: Familial friction, inner family turmoil, and the picking and choosing of sides of one, two, or three against the others- along with managers, outside family members, even hangers-on- was causing the much-beloved band to disintegrate before the eyes of their fans.  Thus, we find Carl Wilson the second Wilson Brother to launch a solo career: “Carl Wilson,” an album that came out on March 27, 1981.  Carl was always a strong songwriter once he got going and was always a glorious collaborator with others.  This album is a good one, one that highlights the artist’s multiple musical abilities and vocal talents.  The album features Carl (vocals, guitars, keyboards), J.W. Guercio (bass, guitars, vocals), Gerald Johnson (bass), James Stroud (drums, percussion), as well as several others.  We hope you will investigate this one to your liking and that perhaps you will add it to your growing collection of nothing but the best in music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

Trump or bring down the Western World.  Beijing, we are not going to settle for Xi-ism, no flipping way.  Here are the stats for the day around the world: 6,591,391 confirmed cases, 388,710 confirmed deaths, but 2,851,157 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the numbers: 1,910,843 confirmed cases, 109,639 confirmed deaths, but 437,251 confirmed recoveries, the last number of which would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics.
  56. 2020 Thursday A: In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 119,807 confirmed cases, 4,422 confirmed deaths, but Governor ‘Little Gavin’ Newsom will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  In the Aloha State, here are the stats: 653 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 609 confirmed recoveries which is incredibly good.  Thank you, Governor David Ige, perhaps you can urge Gavin Newsom and Jay Inslee to do the same?  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 22,729 confirmed cases, 1,138 confirmed deaths, but much like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries which says it’s all about politics.
  57. 2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment.  About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life.  Harmeet Dhillon launches a lawsuit on behalf of beaten journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon, last year.   Get them, Harmeet!   Again, we must say that the majority of us writing for the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believe that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party who channels Beijing’s dark money to its various action groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Time to bring ALL of them down.
  58. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 173,301,283 confirmed cases, +406,451, 3,726,693  confirmed deaths, +9,784 and 156,279,830 confirmed recoveries, +46,930.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,191,460 confirmed cases, UP 16,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 612,202 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[viii] and 28,053,098 confirmed recoveries, UP 29,228.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]  
  59. 2021 Friday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 294,296 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 165,353 deaths  
  60. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,794,217 confirmed cases, 63,393 confirmed deaths, and 2,059,372 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,329,867 confirmed cases, 36,973 confirmed deaths, and 1,970,341 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,471 confirmed cases, 501 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 441,674 confirmed cases, 5,889 confirmed deaths, and 215,260 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Missouri, home of newest Squad member: Rep. Cori “The Bit*h” Bush: they have 601,503 confirmed cases, 9,846 confirmed deaths, and 545,505 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  61. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,539 confirmed cases, 6,417 confirmed deaths, and 832,923 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country- Luxembourg, 104th country on the list, a proud country with a centuries’ old history, a: 70,182 cases of the virus, 818 confirmed deaths and 68,556 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  62. 2021 Friday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,756.39, UP 179.35 points (+0.52%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,814.59, UP 199.98 points (+1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,229.89, UP 37.04 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.37 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.30 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.31%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,841.08 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.07%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $23,300.00 per troy oz., -1,000.00 (-4.12%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., -2,500.00 (-0.41%). [xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96.     In Emirati Dirham, one greenback equals 3.67 and in Estonian Kroon, a buck equals 13.95 and in Ethiopian Birr, one dollar equals 43.19 of theirs.[xv]        
  63. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors – Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.210 per gallon, $2.857 in Florida, $3.944 in Hawaii, and $3.590 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.909.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Namibia: $3.343 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,367,734,381,099 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 which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.[xix]
  64. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #74 for the so-called ‘Border Czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this extremely important job and as of yet, has not shown up to work…once.  Seems like we need a new border czar and not Willie Brown’s former bed partner.  Just saying… In other border news, reports on Newsmax say that nearly $2 billion earmarked for the border wall along the heaviest traffic sector remains unused.  Joe Biden- use this money to continue wall construction.  Now. Speaking of “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden (that tape with him talking about a 7-year-old girl looking like she’s 19 was extremely creepy and classic, classic “Cho-Mo Joe”), today, he officially ended President Donald J. Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy.
  65. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– A Chinese virologist- Dr. Lei-Meng Yan- says ‘Dr. Fauci’s leaked emails prove her claim that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu was indeed leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a majority of people around the globe now believe.’  Amen.  Dr. Fauci was sending the lab $600,000 per year to study bat viruses.  Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci now demands the Chi-Coms release the data on the bat cave patients who were the original people sickened by the Wuhan Flu.
  66. 2021 Friday H: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Advance portions of the Pentagon study into unidentified aerial (and submersible) phenomena are beginning to come out.  Initial excerpts suggest inconclusive findings stating that they could be ‘Chi-Com or Russian highly advanced craft.’  However, Lue Elizondo, the man who headed up the investigation at the Pentagon says that the report actually says the sightings of these and other unknown craft date back 70 years which confirms there is NO way either the Russians or the Chi-Coms could be responsible.  Sightings occurred for as long as human beings have walked the Earth; however, once the nuclear age commenced in the 1950s, the sightings have gone straight up (like the ‘hockey stick model’ that doofus promoting climate change uses) and only continue increasing.  (Note- the Chi-Coms have been busy stealing our (and everyone else’s) technology for decades which suggests there is no way the Beijing bullies could be responsible for this.  We seem to have a BIG PROBLEM.  Anyhow, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says he’s ‘glad he blew the whistle on this problem and got the ball rolling.’  Thank you, senator, thank you.  We didn’t agree with you on much else, but this is a great thing you have done for our country.  
  67. 2021 Friday I: Big Tech News– Little Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook have banned President Donald J. Trump from its social media app (we closed our accounts long, long ago) for the next TWO years, meaning they think they are cutting him off from the rest of the world through the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  However, President Trump said, ‘next time he’s in the White House, there won’t be any dinners for Zuckerberg and his wife, it will be all business.’  We look forward to that time, folks.  Time to use the Sherman Antitrust Act and bust up not only Facebook but also Twitter, Instagram, and all the rest of the mind-controlling apps spying on us and canceling anyone they choose.  
  68. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the ‘graffiti all over her home is a sign of the times in the United States.’  Next the U.S. Senate GOP rejects the Biden regime’s infrastructure demand which leads to feeble old Joe rejecting their rejection.  Wow.  Moving on, yesterday, we reported that jobs created in May were something like 985,000 which was a false number- the true number was 559,000 new jobs which economists said should have been 650,000; the Republicans are ripping Joe Biden a new one over his ineptitude when it comes to being a ‘successful president.’  This man is a walking, stumbling, bumbling disaster and all we can say is ‘IF the Chi-Coms want to get in their licks, they better do it as quickly as possible because once the 2020 Election audits conclude, Joe will be selling pencils on the street corner.
  69. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Former White House counsel under the Trump administration Don McGahn testified before Congress today.  Next, Vice President Mike Pence said that “Black lives saved, not endangered, by the police.”  Next, the Pentagon says- for now- U.S. military bases still cannot fly the LGBTQIA+ flag (but how long before they do).   Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association drops claims against New York Attorney General Leticia James so the NRA can pursue other claims in Manhattan.  Meanwhile, former ambassador to the United States from Israel- Michael Oren- says, ‘it’s always premature to eulogize Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.’  Amen.
  70. 2021 Friday L: Business News– Nonfungible Tokens- so-called NFT sales have fallen by 90-percent as the market implodes.  NFTs are cryptographic assets on blockchain that in the era of cryptocurrencies and other things that don’t exist in the REAL world are things hucksters and shysters peddle to unsuspecting morons wanting to be COOL.  (Note- NFTs are a bogus thing such as digital art and other high-tech crap Millennials love.  Screw ‘em).
  71. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Draw #1665 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 04, 30, 34, 41, 64, and Mega 08.  Stay tuned for further details.  Out of 58,203 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $427 apiece.
  72. 2022 Saturday: Let’s see what corruption the Democrats and their bosses in Beijing are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys would be on tour for the next several years while they were trying to get Brian Wilson out of the doldrums of mental illness and back to being a functioning member of the group.  Thus, the record label began creating some phenomenal repackaging of the group’s earlier hits.  “Endless Summer” came out on June 24, 1974 and featured a rollicking collection of tunes from 1963 to 1965.  Back in the day, this was a double LP and catapulted the band back to popularity and sales as old fans who abandoned them returned and new fans proclaimed a ‘collective wow’ what with all the fun summer songs about surfin,’ girls, and hot rods.  As the Vietnam War sputtered to a close and Watergate was in the history books, everyone wanted to have a fun time once again and with this album, they could and did.  Seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.
