  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.

  42. 2001 Sunday: President George W.

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

Meanwhile, contractors for the U.S. security firm Blackwater USA guarding a U.S. State Department convoy in Baghdad opened fire on civilian vehicles mistakenly believing that they were under attack; 14 Iraqis died.

We know that hydroxychloroquine is one of the best anti-malarial drugs in use on the African continent and in 2020, it’s interesting to note that a country such as Uganda that has long used this extremely low-cost drug the deaths in 2020 from COVID-19 are almost nonexistent. Elsewhere, in Burkina Faso, security guards launch a coup taking President Michel Kafando and other ranking government officials into custody.
  52. 2016 Friday: Democracy Now reports that Donald Trump continues to dis President Barack Hussein Obama by suggesting that the 44th president was not born in the United States. Folks, millions of Americans, and millions more around the planet do not believe Obama[v] was born in the U.S. so WTF? Meanwhile, following a campaign rally in North Carolina the previous day, Hillary Clinton minimizes her public appearances. What is wrong with this woman?
  53. 2017 Saturday: Tropical Storm Maria, which would batter the Caribbean as a powerful hurricane, formed in the Atlantic. Elsewhere, California lawmakers voted to move the state’s presidential primary up by about three months to March, a move that would force candidates to mount expensive campaigns earlier.
  54. 2018 Sunday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes sets an NFL record with 10 touchdown passes in the first two games of the regular season, lighting up the Steelers’ secondary with six touchdown passes for a road win of 42-37. Meanwhile, the Washington Post reports that potential U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh committed sexual assault in the 1980s when he was a young man, charges since proven to be FALSE.   Finally, in London, England, Maartin Allcock- longtime member of Fairport Convention[vi] (guitars, keyboards, violins, vocals, bass guitars, and pipes)- succumbs to liver cancer at age 61.
  55. 2019 Monday:  The New York Times publishes a story in which, it charges the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as being the most expensive in the world that each prisoner costs the taxpayers $13 million annually. Meanwhile, On This Day reports that the personal information of every citizen in Ecuador was found online on an unsecured server. Go figure.
  56. 2020 Wednesday: Warned ahead of time that his book about his time in the Trump administration contained classified information, former National Security Advisor John Bolton finds himself- along with his publisher and support staff- finds himself under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice. We told you so, John! Meanwhile, America’s insurance companies announce that this year’s ongoing ‘peaceful protests,’ aka rioting, looting, arson, rape, and murder- will be the costliest in U.S. history, claims coming in between $1-2 billion. Thank you, Democrats, thank you, Marxist-Socialist thugs. Elsewhere, pot-smoking New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- struggling to remain lucid- announces that HE and his mayoral staff of at least 500 workers will go on furlough for two weeks, beginning in October. Dude, you do nothing anyway but thanks for allowing the city to hold onto your $250,000 annual salary.
  57. 2020 Wednesday A: In Austin, Texas, two construction cranes collide into one another killing no one but injuring at least 22 people on the ground. Illegal aliens at the controls? It is Texas, after all. Meanwhile, Hurricane Sally, a Cat 1 storm, continues assaulting the coastlines of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. Rains are heavy, storm surges strong, and flooding rampant. Elsewhere, NFL ratings are in a nosedive, the opening week’s ratings coming in with a 20-percent or more drop in viewership. Every game save the New Orleans Saints-Tampa Bay Buccaneers was below normal. Don’t expect it to get any better anytime soon, the league’s owners MUST- we repeat, MUST- terminate the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell and send this virtue-signaling POS packing and then must regain control of the players and enforce the rules. You remember ratings were DOWN in 2016 and were it not for Donald Trump, they would have continued tanking. This is your second chance, NFL team owners, and if you blow it this time, we expect America’s favorite sport will be as popular as midget mud wrestling. Don’t blow it. Speaking of football, the BIG 10 says it is going to return to playing games. Congratulations!
  58. 2020 Wednesday B: Senate Minority Leader and knuckle-dragger Sen. Chuck Schumer wants the head of Health and Human Services boss Alex Azar’s head over some bogus charge concerning the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever Bat Flu. Chuck- STFU. Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics polling average shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden with a lead of 49-percent to 44.7-percent over Trump. Wow. You go, Joe, you go! Next, along the west coast, out-of-control wildfires continue to burn acres and take lives yet in our northern neighbor, Canada, the wildfire season is way, way down thanks to proper forest management. Democrats do NOT think we won’t remember who is responsible for all the ills come November or in November 2022, November 2024 and onward. YOU will pay. Finally, last night, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel had Chinese Virus Crisis whistleblower, Dr. Li-Meng Yan on his program and she told the host that Beijing knew the facts concerning the Wuhan Flu and that they INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED IT TO ESCAPE. It is interesting to note that famed bastion of free speech, Twitter (yeah, right), silenced the doctor’s account on September 15. My, my, me!
  59. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee has issued subpoenas to former CIA director John Brennan, former National Security advisor James Clapper, and former FBI director James “The Saint” Comey. Good. Bring them in and bust their balls on live TV! Elsewhere, radio talk show king, Rush Limbaugh, reports today on his program that new polling shows that in strife-torn cities and towns across the country, voters favor Donald Trump by a 2-1 margin in November. Ooops! Not good for the Democrats!
  60. 2020 Wednesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,689,922 confirmed cases, UP by 281,498 cases, 937,543 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,376 deaths, and 20,152,872 confirmed recoveries, UP by 201,786 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,704,125 confirmed cases, UP by 29,165 new cases, 199,297 confirmed deaths, UP by 912 new deaths, and 3,636,578 confirmed recoveries, UP by 21,091 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers). Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 170,465 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 122,785 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Wednesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 771,288 confirmed cases, 14,648 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,951 confirmed cases, 100 confirmed deaths, and 3,885 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 84,320 confirmed cases, 2,107 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let’s take a look at one more state, Idaho: 35,984 confirmed number of cases, 420 confirmed deaths, but no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Brad Little for acting like a Democrat and remaining mum on this figure.
  62. 2020 Wednesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,032.38, UP 36.78 points (+0.13%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,050.47, DOWN 139.85 points (-1.25%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,385.49, DOWN 15.71 points (-0.46%). The price of GOLD is $1,967.20 per troy oz., -3.30 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $27.32 per troy ounce, -0.156 (-0.57%). The price of PLATINUM is $972.80 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.07%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, 0.00 (0.00%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,399.00 per troy oz, -7.50 (-0.31%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.17 per barrel, +0.01 (+0.02%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.75 Chi-Com yuan. Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.03.
  63. 2020 Wednesday G:  President Donald J. Trump- speaking from the White House today- said that he believes a vaccine will be available to combat the Wuhan Virus sometime in October. Earlier in the day, CDC Director Robert Redfield said that ‘masks are good’ and that ‘he was not as optimistic about a vaccine before late 2021.’  We shall see. However, Dr. Scott Atlas says 100 million doses should be available by the end of 2020. Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says his legal advisors have told him that he could probably issue a nationwide mask mandate via executive order. Joe: NOT enough prisons to hold everyone who will not obey the bull crap order. Better to make hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, available to ALL Americans.
  64. 2020 Wednesday H: Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice charges five Chi-Com hackers with attempting to hack into more than 100 sites including social media and government. Currently, law enforcement is tracking these scalawags down. Next, President Trump reverses himself from an earlier stance and says that limited briefings on U.S. elections security will be provided to key members of Congress. As everyone knows, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, the Iranians, the Cubans, the North Koreans, the Venezuelans, everyone with an ax to grind against the U.S. is going to attempt changing U.S. election results in November as they always do. When Barack Hussein Obama was president, he said influencing an election one way or another was nearly impossible so why would things be any different now?
  65. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,764,447 confirmed cases, +614,296, 4,681,587 confirmed deaths, +10,187 and 204,406,238 confirmed recoveries, +579,782. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,618,589 confirmed cases, UP 183,742 from yesterday’s reporting, 686,896 confirmed deaths, UP 2,324, [vii] and 32,324,091 confirmed recoveries, UP 79,598. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  66. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 368,442 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 35,636 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

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

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

[iv] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

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

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

257. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 2022:

Friends, forget the depressing polling numbers when it comes to winning back the U.S. Senate.  I suspect that in most every state where the GOP is competing, the Dems are going to lose and in a big way.  Don’t listen to the Dems, don’t listen to the pollsters, just turn out and vote, vote, vote!

President William McKinley; Vice President Aaron Burr; U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice James Wilson; U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson; U.S. Attorney-General William Bradford; U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert A. Lovett; U.S. Secretary of the Interior Alexander H.H. Stuart; Free and Backstreet Crawler featuring Paul Kossoff, Nazareth featuring Pete Agnew, the Strawberry Alarm Clock featuring Ed King, and the Cars:

Bill Johnson, R-OH 6th congressional district, told Newsmax today that ‘Joe Biden’s team must apologize to the American people or admit that their boss is unfit to hold office.’   Still, the Biden regime pulled together Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Hussein Obama to go out and raise money to help the unvetted Afghan refugees pouring into the country.  Speaking of Afghanistan, security officials now claim that al-Qaida could reconstitute itself within two years.  What?  They have been there all along, folks.

Trump endorses Anna Paulina Luna for the seat left vacant by Charlie Crist, Florida’s 13th congressional district.  Once governor of the Sunshine State, Crist is going to take a run at “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis in November 2022.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News I– Liberals are celebrating senile Joe Biden after yesterday’s public appearance when he signed the cross after mentioning the name of President Donald J. Trump.  Then, senile Joe said that California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder is a ‘Trump clone.’  Yeah, we know, according to the Los Angeles Times, Larry Elder is the ‘black face of white supremacism.’  Balderdash!  In other news related to the usurper in the White House, USMC Recon Leader Chad Robichaux slams the loser in a new TV ad for his disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The FBI has fired its lead investigator in the ‘plot’ to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer.  What’s up?  Too many FBI agents involved in this ‘scam abduction?’  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice has ordered scaling back on police chokeholds and ‘no-knock’ warrants.  The DOJ is also launching a civil rights probe into Peach State prisons.  My, my, my!
  83. : Political News I– Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to take on communist China instead of sitting around dithering in his Delaware basement.  Next, Newsmax’ White House reporter Emerald Robinson asked a question this morning which every American wants to know: WHO is shutting down the feed whenever slobbering Joe Biden begins to speak?  In fact, during his testimony before the U.S. Senate today, Senator Jim Risch, R-ID, asked Secretary “Bullshit” Blinken who has this authority which caused the startled secretary to hem and haw all over the place.
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News II– Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, says that the Biden regime’s planned tax hikes on the American people are going to hit them at the wrong time (not that tax hikes are ever good).   Rep. Drew Ferguson, R-GA 3rd congressional district, says the tax hikes will ‘leave businesses gutted.’ Speaking of taxes, the Internal Revenue Service is going to monitor ALL transactions over $600.00.  In other news that is no shock to us, former staffers of Rep. Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, accuse this hateful lefty of mistreatment and abuse.  Not surprising, folks, she seems like a ‘bi**h to us.
  85. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News III– Bob Woodward’s book, “Peril,” set for general release next week, is shocking the American people.  Mr. Woodward demonstrates what most Americans see as a coup against President Donald J. Trump after January 6, 2021, in which, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley got military leaders and CIA head Gina Haspel to swear allegiance to him in case they had to eject the rightful president from the White House.  He also contacted his Chi-Com counterpart to let the communist know that if Trump launched a war against the communist regime in his final days, i.e., a ‘wag the dog operation,’ he would let the Chi-Coms know before the first bombs began falling.  This is HIGH TREASON folks and General Milley must meet his end atop the gallows.  
  86. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News IV– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says he will ‘filibuster any attempt by the Biden regime to raise the debt ceiling.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Paul Gosar, R-AZ 4th congressional district, produced a genius idea today: ALL House leaders should wear body cameras so that more transparency and honesty can be achieved.  Great idea, Congressman.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, is making his far-left colleagues go insane.  He continues to claim that he will NOT support his party’s $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.’  This has people like Senator Bernie Sanders and losers such as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez going after him tooth and nail.  Wow.  Finally, it appears that Vice President Mike Pence is preparing to run in 2024.  Huh?
  87. 2021 Tuesday U: U.S. Senate News I– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken sat before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee today to answer questions from the lawmakers.  U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin was asked to come but refused the invitation.  A nonplused Senator Bob “Cho-Mo” Menendez, DS-NJ, and committee chairman threatened he might send Secretary Austin a subpoena.
  88. 2021 Tuesday V: Social Media News– Following the brave tweets launched by entertainer Nikki Minaj blowing the lid off the COVID-19 vaccine crap, Twitter would not bow down to the demands by people such as noted racist Joy “Pro-Democracy” Reid and other losers such as she by saying her tweets did not violate their rules.   Good.  Free speech is NEVER wrong.  We are not living in George Orwell’s world yet.  In other social media news, attacks on brain-dead liberal Democrats- maskless ones at that- who attended last night’s Met affair are going viral, especially after Sandy “The Fly” Cortez wore a $35,000 dress that said ‘tax the rich’ on her backside at the $30,000 per plate event.  What a bunch of losers.
  89. 2021 Tuesday W: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Liberals are dancing in the streets: conservative radio talk show host, Bob Enyart of Denver, who stood against the Chi-Vi vaccines has reportedly died from the Chi-Vi.  Liberals love stuff like this the sick f**ks.
  90. 2021 Tuesday X: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– WOKE sissies in California are going to rename world famous ski resort Squaw Valley to something else that won’t offend Injuns.  Wow.  Bet they feel REAL GOOD.  (Note- how about doing something good for the long-suffering people of the state like stamping out crime, ending homelessness, handing illegal aliens over to ICE for deportation, clearcutting the forests, getting back to water infrastructure, and fixing the streets?  Nope.  All California wants to do is to be WOKE).  Meanwhile, attention ALL lefties out there: the University of Nebraska is going to offer a minor in ‘racial justice, equity, and inclusion.’  Boy, they will be lining up for that sham degree.
  91. 2021 Tuesday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1694 what with a $383 million jackpot on the line: 04, 13, 19, 63, 64, and Mega 16.  Out of 114,572 winning tickets, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,355 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday Z: The Wrap-Up– It appears that the downtrodden people of California voted in favor of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to finish his term and thus run for a second term next year.  The results were almost instantaneous tonight what with tens of thousands of reports of people’s votes already being cast for them.  Wow.
  93. 2022 Wednesday: Observation of the Day- I find it absolutely mind-blowing that people still listen to what the media says when it comes to polling and the chances of electoral victory for Republicans.  I hate to be a downer for the Dems but I suspect the United States Senate is going to swing hard to the right and the Dems are going to be wailing like the scum they are.  I think every contest in which, Republicans are competing with Dems in this year’s election cycle when it comes to the U.S. Senate are swinging our way.  Raiding President Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence and the horrifyingly stupid and evil speech ‘Slobbering Joe’ Biden gave before a backlit red wall are becoming the final daggers in their socialist chests.  Likewise, I expect the House is going to swing our way as why would that crotchety bag of bones, over-Botox-ed Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi be floating the idea that she wants to become U.S. ambassador to Italy?  She sees the writing on the wall, and she understands that she and her lunatic left-wing socialist allies have once again overplayed their hands and are facing Armageddon in less than two months.  It is going to be glorious, and I can’t wait to dance on their political graves.  Let’s vote these bottom-feeding reprobates out of office in one big bloodletting.  Hey, Mitch McConnell- how about getting on board with the oncoming tidal wave?  What do YOU think- Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.                                            

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0952 a 5” x 7” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Roses Three.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Working like rock-and-roll madmen, Cheap Trick returned with their tertiary effort, “Heaven Tonight” which continued to drive the band up the rock and roll charts.  The lineup featured the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Unlike many bands of the period, Cheap Trick combined some of the hardest and occasionally darkest rock-and-roll chops with some pop music peaks.  Thus we have the radio classic, “Surrender,” that one continues hearing to this day on radio stations as well as the dark title track.  We also have “California Man” and “Oh, Claire,” the last of which is a ‘hidden track’ on the album.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

  57. 2019 Friday: Much to the outrage of foaming-at-the-mouth American leftists, Israel forbids AOC squad members Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar from visiting the Jewish country on their own, citing their support for the bogus BDS movement- boycott, divest, and sanction Israel until they hand everything over to the loony tunes Palestinians.  Oh, boohoo.  Meanwhile, in Kashmir, eleven people die as Pakistani and Indian troops clash.  Finally, Kim Jong Un fires off two missiles as he breaks off prospects of further talks with South Korea.
  58. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- the Beijing Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Virus Crisis, the one Comrade Xi Jinping sent to the rest of the world, continues demolishing our planet as it takes names and compiling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 21,480,111 confirmed cases, UP 199,503 cases, 771,558 confirmed deaths, UP 4,096, and 13,465,165 confirmed recoveries, UP 171,286.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 5,437,012 confirmed cases, UP 33,256, 171,426 confirmed deaths, UP 794, and 2,743,594 confirmed recoveries, UP 10,539.  The question is, WHEN are the Chi-Coms going to pay the GARGANTUAN PRICE for the contemptible crimes committed against the rest of the planet?

  60. 2020 Sunday B: The Democrats continue undergoing meltdowns as they blast the Trump administration for proposing cuts to the U.S. Postal Service.  They want more money going to the USPS so it can ‘manage the increase in mail-in ballots.’  You know, there was a time when the Democrats attempted to conceal their election-stealing attempts whereas now, they could give a hoot.  Various cities have reported boxes of election ballots piling up at post offices or at storage sites, ballots that will flood in on Election Day all in favor of Democrats.  Democrats demand the U.S. postmaster testify in Congress on August 24, the day the GOP Convention commences.  As for election-thieving, well, two can play the same game and when the Democrats are BLOWN out in November, let us see what the sniveling scumbags try to do then?  An actual attempted overthrow of the government?  Thank God gun sales are skyrocketing across the country- careful what you wish for, Democratic Party!  DO NOT ALLOW THE DEMOCRATS TO STEAL THE ELECTION!
  61. 2020 Sunday C: Meanwhile, in Chicago, protests become riots and at least seventeen law enforcement officers suffering injuries as they attempt to quell the violence trashing a once-great city.   In Portland, Oregon, ongoing protests transform into riots there on a nightly basis.  Time to hire special contractors to go in and clean out the filth.

[xix]    Let us look at one other location- New Mexico: $3.079.  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- Romania: $5.338 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,649,118,365,205 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  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 Grand Cayman Island, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235 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.
  68. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Here are the costs of the Afghan War: (1) 20 years, the longest U.S. war (2) U.S. military deaths: 2,448 (3) U.S. Military wounded: 20,719 (4) U.S. contractor deaths: 3,846 (5) direct costs: $2 trillion.  (6) Costs to 2050 for the American people: $6.5 trillion.  (Source: Newsmax).  (Note- the Western Roman Empire collapsed because (1) inability to control its borders (2) perpetual wars (3) never-ending political strife and (4) normalization of perversion, immorality, and loss of faith.  Sound like any country you might know?)  Meanwhile, former deputy CIA Director Mike Morell says that the collapse of Afghanistan is not an ‘intelligence failure’ but a ‘policy failure.’  Joe Biden is attempting to blame everyone else for his troubles than himself whereas President Harry S. Truman so famously said, “The buck stops here.”  Next, Politico stuck a journalistic dagger into the neck of dictator Joe Biden when they said his ‘chip on his shoulder’ is what caused the debacle the world is watching in Afghanistan as he would NOT listen to his generals.  In other Afghan-related news, at least seven desperate people are dead from falling several thousand feet from outbound aircraft at the Kabul airport.  Meanwhile, outside the White House, Afghan Americans are protesting the White House usurper by shouting, “THEY’RE KILLING OUR PEOPLE!”
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– today is Day No. 146 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 52 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Here are the numbers for illegal aliens and the cost of caring for them as provided by OAN.  First, the cost this day alone is: $652,723,151.  Next, here is the appalling cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country for just this year: $248,821,415,836.  Imagine the good that money could do for the American people and not the flotsam and jetsam of the Third World?  Next, here are the numbers of illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,555,525.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers for all time: 36,555,525.  Horrifying, simply horrifying.  (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- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks).
  70. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Talks between the Maduro regime in Venezuela and its opposition are underway in Mexico City.  Meanwhile, after months of turmoil in Malaysia, the prime minister who seized power in a coup relinquished it.  Next, Lebanese police officers and violent protesters clashed in the norther portion of the country where a fuel tank exploded over the weekend killing and injuring numerous people.  Elsewhere, as the U.S. flees out of Afghanistan, the Chi-Coms are telling Taipei to reconsider their belief that the U.S. will come to their rescue when the People’s Liberation Army begins landing on Taiwanese beaches.  Meanwhile, the U.N. Security Council pushes for talks to bring about the formation of the new government in the new Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– As the Taliban continues accumulating and securing power across Afghanistan, Taliban thugs both inside and outside the empty U.S. embassy are chanting, “Death to America, death to America, death to America.”  Nice they love us so much.  Meanwhile, at the airport in Kabul, U.S. troops in two difference incidents shoot dead a pair of Taliban thugs.  Chaos at the airport has put a hold on exit flights.  As the catastrophe unfolds, dictator Joe Biden says he stands by his decision ‘to flee Afghanistan and to leave the people to the mercies of the Taliban.’  Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that this is “Saigon on steroids.”
  72. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– today Health experts announced that ‘herd immunity may never be achieved with COVID-19.’ Meanwhile, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the American people must ‘set aside personal liberties so we can join forces to do battle with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’ (It is ALWAYS, we must surrender our God-given personal liberties to climb aboard the BIG GOVERNMENT train).
  73. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– An Indiana man found himself in the intensive care unit of his city after contracting flesh-eating bacteria following the consumption of raw oysters.  (Folks, we gave up eating raw oysters long ago and would recommend that everyone else do the same thing.  Besides, they do not do what people believe they do, it is all in the mind).
  74. 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Harvard University and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, medical professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff told Greg Kelly on Newsmax over the weekend that Joe Biden’s demand for vaccine mandates creates distrust of the vaccines in people who have already had the disease.  Dr. Kulldorff says it must stop.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Dr. Francis Collins- Director of National Institute of Health- says that ‘unvaccinated Americans pose more problems for the United States than do the millions of illegal aliens flooding into the country.’  What a party apparatchik.  In Colorado on the first day of school, masks and law enforcement officers are all over the place.  Speaking of schools and COVID-19, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that the feds ‘cannot pay off school superintendents’ to follow the regime’s orders.  Regarding Florida, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that ‘parents cannot sue over the mask ban’ he put into place with an executive order.
  75. 2021 Monday M: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $48.91 (2) AstraZeneca $58.75 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.84 (4) BioNTech $343.10 (5) Moderna $373.86.  As we say, IF you wish to understand the reason for the BIG PUSH that everyone ‘get vaccinated’ or undergo immediate transport to Devil’s Island or to a leper colony (as well as all the mask mandates), just follow the money.  Politicians and bigwigs and other titans of the globe all are invested in these companies, companies that CANNOT BE SUED no matter how badly one is affected by a vaccine, which also gives them incredible power over the people they rule.
  76. 2021 Monday N: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Arizona announces that the week of August 22, 2021, is when they will release the preliminary report on the election fraud and corruption that went on in the Copper State surrounding the November 2020 Elections.  Meanwhile, as the disastrous Biden regime stumbles about like a punch-drunk boxer, we hope that more states will begin audits of the 2020 Elections because this disastrous mess cannot continue much longer.  Yes, we do miss President Donald J. Trump and he must return to the White House.  Those involved in the rampant election fraud and corruption must go to prison if not to the gallows for their crimes and perfidy.  There are many, many traitors who must pay the price for their betrayal, their disloyalty, and their treachery.  Chef Hector Santanamos Del Soto.
  77. 2021 Monday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Now that Joe Biden has sold out the Afghan people to the Taliban and- even worse– to the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump asks the question: ‘who will Joe Biden sell out next?’  The President also slammed the usurper in the White House for his ‘grossly incompetent’ abandonment of Afghanistan to the jihadists. 
  78. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden News I– Afghan Americans arrived outside the White House over the past weekend protesting the abandonment of their country to the cruel jihadist hoodlums.  Speaking of senile Joe Biden, chief pollster at the Trafalgar Group, Robert Cahaly- says that ‘Joe Biden is more popular than his policies.’  All day, the White House said that Joe Biden was ‘going to address the American people’ on the mess in Afghanistan.  Finally, he did and did what all of us knew he would: blame President Donald J. Trump and the Afghan people for being losers.  Wow.  The Deputy National Security Adviser Jonathan Finer says there will be ‘grave consequences for the Taliban if the riffraff interfere in the U.S. withdrawal from Kabul and across Afghanistan.’  Even worse for Joe Biden is his reluctance to give American citizens priority in the evacuation out of the destabilized Central Asian country.
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. State Department said earlier today that ALL U.S. embassy staff is at the airport in Kabul but thanks to the pandemonium occurring there, the U.S. authorities on the ground have suspended outbound flights until control can be reestablished.   Meanwhile, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley is defending his misguided assessment as to the strength of the Taliban.  (Note- Gen. Milley, you sound like the Nazis who underestimated Russian troop strength in late 1941 through 1942.  YOU must resign, sir.  NOW).  In other Biden regime news, Joe says the USDA is going to permanently increase food stamp benefits, i.e., SNAP benefits, because there are millions of foreign invaders who need to eat.  In other Biden regime news, the Bidenistas are filing a challenge to a recent court order to revive President Donald J. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Come on, Joe, we have enough illegal aliens in the country.  Can’t we stop already? 
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News I– As things continue deteriorating in Afghanistan, Vice President Mike Pence places the blame for the calamity unfolding there squarely atop the culprit responsible: drooling Joe Biden.  Former Army General (and CIA Director) David H. Petraeus says that ‘no good can come from the precipitous abandonment of Kabul to the Islamists.’  Security experts are now saying that ‘another 9-11-style attack is only a matter of time’ (especially with wide-open borders).  As things worsen in Kabul, the Republican Party is demanding the resignations of Joe Biden, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.  (Speaking of ‘Cryin’ Chuck,’ he is outraged over the need to crack down on fake China Virus vaccine cards.  Chuck- f**k you).
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News II– An angry House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is demanding that the House of Representatives launch a probe into the abrupt collapse of Afghanistan.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, says that ‘Joe Biden takes the final blame for the collapse of Afghanistan.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s arrogance led to the turmoil in Afghanistan.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell is accusing the Biden regime of outing U.S. intelligence officers on Twitter.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Political News III– Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies told Newsmax that Joe Biden may be unable to control the amount of Afghan refugees who will try to enter our country.  Next, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should resign from office over the disaster in Afghanistan.’   U.S. GOP Senate campaign Chairman Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, is floating the idea that the time is now to use the 25th Amendment to get enfeebled old Joe Biden out of the White House ASAP.  Former National Security Adviser to President Donald J. Trump- H.R. McMaster- says that ‘Joe Biden’s humanitarian disaster will equate with increased security risks for the United States.’  Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Joe Biden is the most incompetent commander-in-chief in the past forty years’ (the other one being President Jimmy Carter).   (Note- Joe Biden claims he will not repeat the past mistakes made by three other presidents in Afghanistan).   
  83. 2021 Monday U: Political News IV– Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, says that ‘firings must occur surrounding the debacle in Afghanistan.’  Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says that ‘Joe Biden ignored warnings regarding Afghanistan and now owns the disaster.’  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, told Greg Kelly on Newsmax that the ‘administration had NO plan with which to evacuate our embassy or the people who fought alongside us in the Central Asian hellhole.’  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says ‘we should have maintained a presence at Baghram Air Base instead of leaving it to the enemy.’  Both agree that WHEN we have to return to the ‘graveyard of empires,’ the Taliban will be better armed with U.S. abandoned weapons of all types.’
  84. 2021 Monday V: Miscellaneous News I– The federal government is giving Florida $500 million to help with the manatee crisis.  Meanwhile, the U.S. National Park Service is making masks mandatory at all parks in the U.S.

  87. 2021 Monday Y: Big Tech News– Google whistleblower Scott Voorhies says that his employer changed its algorithms to unfairly target President Donald J. Trump throughout 2020.  To keep unwelcome news trending for President Trump, they would attach old stories to new ones to keep them pushed up to the front of the pack.  Elsewhere, T-Mobile is probing claims that hackers ripped off the data of 100 million users.
  88. 2021 Monday Z: Environmental News I– As we have said for close to a decade now, the Sun is the driver of all climate change, NOT CO2.  Well, a new study confirms that but observe this: solar activity- sunspots, solar flares, and solar winds- ebbs and flows.  When there is more activity, the entire Solar System warms up and when there is less, it cools down.  IF you get rid of ALL carbon dioxide emissions, plants will wither and die, oxygen production will fall off, and eventually, you end up with a planet like Mars.  All one must do to learn the truth is to find unbiased university professors willing to teach truthful geography classes and not this dumb-ass Marxist ‘global warming’ bulls**t dimwits such as AOC, Al Gore, and Greta Thunberg run around squealing and crying about.  Wake up, dummies.
  89. 2021 Monday AA: Natural Disasters News– Like California, wildfires are raging across Spain.  Meanwhile, one person died over the weekend as a party boat sailing the calm waters of Lake Conroe in the Texas town of Conroe flipped over when a freak storm crashed into the ship.  The two-story craft had fifty-three people aboard when the mishap occurred, and an older man died at the hospital following injuries sustained in the accident.
  90. 2021 Monday BB: California State News– As Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom continues sobbing that the “GOP is trying to get me in the recall election,’ today, we learned that copious quantities of bond money set aside to build water infrastructure in the Golden State is just sitting there, unused.  Damn it, Gov. Newsom, if you even cared about your job, get work underway NOW on the Sacramento Delta diversion project that will safely send northern California water south to the farmers and the citizens of the state.  Loser.  Regarding “Nazi” Newsom, a new poll (supposedly) claims Golden State voters find themselves split in the recall effort to remove the WORST governor in all fifty states and five territories.
  91. 2021 Monday CC: Nevada State News– Former Republican Silver State Attorney General Adam Laxalt has filed papers to compete against sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, D-NV, for the seat in November 2022.  
  92. 2021 Monday DD: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov (who says his mother was the one who imbued his scandalous behavior into him when he was a youngster) says, “I could have beaten impeachment.”  Then why are you leaving, you corrupt POS?  Even as Cuomo is in the process of exiting the governor’s office, he issued a mandate today: ALL Empire State health care professionals MUST undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Wow.  What a loser.
  93. 2021 Monday EE: Oklahoma State News– Patriotic Oklahomans demonstrated at their state capital over the weekend, protesting the Chi-Vi vaccine and mask mandates government is trying to foist onto them. 
  94. 2021 Monday FF: Texas State News– A Texas Supreme Court justice issues a temporary injunction against Lone Star State Democrats seeking to disobey Governor Greg Abbott’s ban on mask mandates in the schools and in public life.  Meanwhile, Texans will soon be able to open carry firearms without permits.
  95. 2021 Monday GG: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed actor Johnny Depp says that Hollywood is ‘boycotting me.’
  96. 2021 Monday HH: The Wrap Up– Prophesy- how soon will we see landing craft doors slamming down on Taiwanese beaches, the subjugation of Ukraine, Islamism spreading like wildfire throughout all of Central Asia, and Cuban and Venezuelan hegemony dispersing through all of Latin America?  With the Antitrump in the White House, we suspect it will begin soon… El Chilote predicts this on this day…
  97. 2022 Tuesday: The plot against President Donald J. Trump continues to grow by the day.  I would like to ask the readers of our blog, did you ever think- since we began back in 2009 writing for the Chi-Com blog site, Choseit.com, that we would have the misfortune of seeing the collapse of our country into Venezuela-style socialism?  Oh, it might not be that way at the moment, folks, but if we do not continue kicking butt from today onward and into 2024, it will be here before you know it.  You folks in Alaska- send Senator Lisa Murkowski packing and elect Kelly Tshibaka and Sarah Palin.  You folks in Wyoming, send that godawful witch “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney packing.  It is time to reclaim our country and to continue reclaiming it.  It’s that or troubled times for all of us but only if we allow it.  I seriously doubt my fellow Americans will permit this to befall our wonderful country.  We know we won’t.  Tell me what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Live long enough and eventually, one will hear every last lick recorded by a veteran band which is why we have “The Big Beat 1963,” a ‘compilation album’ of sorts that came out on December 17, 2013.  Truly more of a Brian Wilson album seeing as how the compilations are his, the album features tracks he wrote prior to the Beach Boys recorded by other up-and-coming pop bands and artists at the time.  According to the source for everything- world-famous Wikipedia- the album was released to ‘keep up with European copyright laws’ that said if you didn’t release something by such and such a date, one’s copyright on the material could be lost.  Thus, we have “The Big Beat 1963,” an album containing 22 heretofore unreleased tracks.  We hope you seek this one out and add it to your growing list of recording artists.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we have.  Who knows?  You might even be able to find it at your local library.

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022

2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus. Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated. We knew something was wrong with these vaccines. It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House…

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 91

EVERYONE’S FAVORITE GERMAN CHEF: FRITZ SCHLEPENDRECHT

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022:

President Herbert Hoover; Supreme Court Associate Justices Joseph McKenna and Ruth Bader Ginsburg; U.S. Attorneys-General Edmund J. Randolph and Joseph McKenna; U.S. Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary James Loy; U.S. Interior Secretaries Orville H. Browning and William P. Clark Jr.; U.S. Secretary of State Edmund J. Randolph; Acting U.S. Treasury Secretary Kenneth W. Dam; Michael “Dynamite” Dokes, Riddick “Big Daddy” Bowe, INXS featuring Jon Farriss, Isaac Hayes, and Jethro Tull featuring Ian Anderson:

  1. 70 Sunday: The Roman legions under the command of General Titus set the Second Temple of Jerusalem alight during the Great Jewish War.   The Romans had laid siege to Jerusalem due to a Jewish uprising and their murdering of a retreating Roman legion given ‘safe passage.’  This put in motion events that would lead to the destruction of the city, the ‘Wailing Wall’ being the only part of the city the Romans were unable to tear down.  Eventually, survivors who managed to escape the dying city would flee to Masada where the Romans would follow and destroy them.
  2. 654 Thursday: Cardinals elect Eugene I to succeed Martin I as Pope of all Christendom.  As the 75th Roman Catholic Pope, Eugene I would serve from today until June 2, 657.

  46. 1995 Thursday: Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were charged with eleven counts in the Oklahoma City bombing.  McVeigh was convicted of murder and underwent execution whereas Nichols was convicted of conspiracy and involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to life in prison.  Elsewhere, Norma McCorvey, “Jane Roe” of the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion announced she had jointed the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue.  God bless you, Ms. McCorvey, the guilt that propelled you to do this must have been horrendous.
  47. 1996 Saturday: Senator Bob Dole picks Senator Jack Kemp to be his running mate for the Republican ticket.  President Bill Clinton and Vice President Al Gore would win a second term.

  50. 2006 Thursday: British authorities announced they had thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up ten aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in hand luggage.  Ah, although left unsaid, one must love the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

[iv]

  55. 2015 Monday: Google announces its restructure with Alphabet as a holding company and YouTube, Android, and Chrome as subsidiaries.  Yet, nothing changes as Google still collaborates closely with its bosses in Beijing, communist China.
  56. 2016 Wednesday: Candidate Donald J. Trump slams the ‘dishonest news media’ for misinterpreting his comments on how a ‘President Hillary Clinton will abolish the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.’  Sounds like the truth to everyone with half-a-mind or more; let us see who wins in November…
  57. 2017 Thursday: U.S. President Donald J. Trump announces that opioid addiction in the country now is a national emergency.  It has been for quite a while thanks to the People’s Republic of China continuing to ship fentanyl and other opiates into the United States as a reverse opium war of sorts.  People, time to start pushing the Chin back.  Meanwhile, as the #MeToo Movement continues to grind on, a sobbing Taylor Swift announces that deejay David Mueller groped her in Denver, Colorado.  Uh, okay…
  58. 2018 Friday:  The U.N. Committee on Human Rights receives word that the Chi-Coms have one million Uighurs- at least!- in concentration camps in western China where they provide slave labor to American sports team making gear and other paraphernalia while being indoctrinated with ‘how great Xi Jinping and Maoism are’ while being forced to surrender their religious beliefs.  Yet, American sports stars look the other way, folks, look the other way…
  59. 2019 Saturday: In Bucharest, Romania, anti-government protests break out that lead to at least four hundred citizens being injured.  Meanwhile, in a San Francisco court, Monsanto is hammered with a massive payout of $289 million to gardener Dewayne Johnson who contracted cancer from using the weed killer Round-Up.  [v] Elsewhere, police find financier Jeffrey Epstein dead in his jail cell, apparently from a self-inflicted hanging.  No one knows anything…
  60. 2020 Monday: The Chi-Coms today sanctioned 11 U.S. politicians or business heads, all of them Republicans or with organizations promoting democracy, seemingly in a feeble attempt at ‘punishing America’ for punishing them over their misdeeds in Hong Kong and elsewhere as well as for giving the world the Chinese Bat Plague.  Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, here are today’s statistics:  
  61. 2020 Monday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 19,936,547 confirmed cases, +202,119, 732,467 confirmed deaths, +3,855, and 12,144,510 confirmed recoveries, +142,973.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,159,740 confirmed cases, UP by 38,647 new cases, 165,118 confirmed deaths, UP by 477 new deaths, and 2,511,602 confirmed recoveries, UP by 13,023 new recoveries.   
  62. 2020 Wednesday B: 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: 561,911 confirmed cases, 10,359 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,498 confirmed cases, thirty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,548 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,445 confirmed cases, 1,695 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  63. 2020 Monday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,791.44, UP 257.96 points (+1.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,968.36, DOWN 42.63 points (-0.39%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,360.47, UP 9.19 points (+0.27%).  Currently, GOLD is at $2,039.00 per troy oz., DOWN -0.70 (-0.03%), SILVER is at $29.36 per troy oz., UP 0.094 (0.32%), PLATINUM $1,006.10 per troy oz. UP +3.40 (+0.34%), and COPPER is at $2.87 # +0.005 (+0.34%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.00, UP +0.06 (+0.14%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.96 Chi-Com yuan.  In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
  64. 2020 Monday D: President Trump begins a press conference in the White House Press Room when an aide interrupts him and leads him away.  Apparently, shots were fired a few blocks from the White House.  Moments later, Secret Service had it under control and the president reappeared and continued his press conference.  He answered all questions and when done, exited the room. Currently, “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads the president in national polls by 49.2-percent to the president’s 42.00-percent. 
  65. 2020 Monday E: Speaking of the Chi-Coms earlier, the MSS begins arresting pro-democracy figures across Hong Kong, including arresting media mogul Jimmy Lai and his son, among others, as the communists begin implementing their new bogus ‘security law.’  The time is coming when the United States is going to have to give the commies in Beijing a major black eye.  How a return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as a free, independent nation, and the rightful ruler of the mainland.  FREE TAIWAN!  FREE HONG KONG!  FREE TIBET!  FREE MACAU!  FREE UIGHUR MUSLIMS!  DEATH TO COMMUNISM!
  66. 2020 Monday F: A U.S. military helicopter out of Joint Base Andrews was hit by groundfire over Middleburg, Va., today, wounding one crewmember aboard.  The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing at a regional airport in Manassas.  The FBI is investigating.  Meanwhile, over the weekend in Chicago, thirty-four people are shot, three of them fatally.  Will it never f—ing end?  How long have Democrats controlled the Windy City?

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 315,875 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 88,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  69. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,076,572 confirmed cases, 64,852 confirmed deaths, and 2,129,828 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,827,450 confirmed cases, 39,934 confirmed deaths, and 2,306,339 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 47,376 confirmed cases, 543 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 498,096 confirmed cases, 6,235 confirmed deaths, and 235,124 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Utah: they have 441,131 confirmed cases, 2,511 confirmed deaths, and 421,906 confirmed recoveries.

[xiii]        
  72. 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 $4.392 per gallon, $3.018 in Florida, $4.093 in Hawaii, and $3.875 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Montana: $3.292.  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- Zimbabwe: $5.113 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,626,623,832,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the United Kingdom, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 140 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 46th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $532,913,238.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,703,429,068.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,486,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,486,823. [xvii]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– House Republicans are demanding that the Department of Homeland Security explain why it has become so easy to swarm across the U.S.-Mexico border into the United States.  Illegal aliens are overwhelming the country and DHS is standing idly by.  This is becoming an invasion.  Because of the problems along the border, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has offered articles of impeachment for U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea threatened today to begin working anew on its nuclear weapons programs and missiles because South Korea and the United States are back to holding joint military exercises.  Elsewhere, a Chi-Com court upholds a death sentence imposed upon a Canadian ‘drug trafficker’ Robert Lloyd.  Canada should take note of this outrage because as a junior participant in the fraudulent 2020 Elections in the United States via their Dominion Voting Systems machines, look at how their Beijing masters have rewarded them- death sentence for a Canadian citizen.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci warns that ‘vaccine mandates are coming following full approval by the Food and Drug Administration of the various emergency use Chi-Vi vaccines.  (Note- Mike Lindell said at his symposium today in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, that the FDA can clear a drug for emergency use only if no other treatments of any kind exist for whatever the disease is.  This means that Democrats, RINOs, and the media assaulted President Donald J. Trump anytime he mentioned safe and cheap hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, they went berserk and tore great hunks of hair from their bald pates.  Interesting to know, Mr. Lindell, thank you).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, he and the Centers for Disease Control are finding themselves slammed with multiple lawsuits over the draconian lockdowns and harsh restrictions the mercurial Dr. Fauci and his partners in crime continue forcing on the American people.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Joe Biden says he likely does not have the power to interfere in various states’ anti-mask and anti-lockdown mandates but sure the heck is looking into it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– If one does not believe that communist thugs hold power in the United States, think again.  As Mesa County, Colorado, elections clerk Tina Peters was on her way to join Mike Lindell’s 72-hour cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, today, while she was aboard Mr. Lindell’s aircraft, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, Democratic-Socialist, and a ban of flunkies raided the election offices of Mesa County.  Denied entry to see what was going on over the course of the 3-4 hours the political hacks rooted through everything like hogs, sticking their snouts into every crevice, every nook, and every cranny, they were unable to witness the events, nor were they informed as to what the storm troopers removed.  Americans must take note of these fascist tactics.
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: 2020 Election Audit– Dominion Systems is suing Newsmax for reporting that the Canadian-based company whom the AICPENDBLOG.COM alleges works for the Chi-Coms.  Mike Lindell’s three-day cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, SD, continues exposing just how devious the voting machine company appears to be.  It is going to be difficult for this corrupt company to stand stark naked in the bright light of day so the more patriotic Americans and other patriots around the world call them out, the sooner we can achieve answers and rectify and repair the damage Dominion Systems has caused the world.  Additionally, Mike Lindell and his team of cyber experts appear to have found sufficient evidence to lay the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for conducting a massive cyber-attack on all fifty states on and around November 03, 2020.  Most Americans agree that this amounts to an act of war and when combined with the Chi-Coms’ release of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, there is much for which, the communist scumbags must answer.  We have said this before and will say it again, but the Wuhan Virus allowed them to kill two birds with one stone: first, it helped them get rid of Donald Trump via colluding with the Democrats, Trump-hating RINOs, and Dominion Voting Systems and second, it helped them crush the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.  For this, they must pay.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I– Regime leader Joe Biden claims ‘it’s up to Afghanistan to defend its own country as the Taliban overrun six provincial capitals.  Then, later in the day, the drooling moron says through his mouthpiece that ‘it’s not a foregone conclusion the Taliban is going to run the Middle Eastern country.’
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– We learned today that the National Security Administration’s inspector general is looking into allegations made by Fox News host Tucker Carlson that the NSA was ‘spying on me.’  We bet they will produce nothing and yet, the surveillance will continue.
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News I– Today is Day No. 1 for Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame to hold his cyber symposium and what an opening day it was.  IF you think Joe Biden truly won the 2020 Presidential Election, well, watch the symposium and let us know what you think AFTER viewing it.  We think Joe Biden is walking on thin ice which is why the Democrats are going bat crap crazy.
  83. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News II– Prominent Pro-Life group Susan B. Anthony List made its first political endorsement for the 2022 Mid-Term Elections by endorsing Governor Henry McMaster, R-SC.  Elsewhere, the Texas Supreme Court has upheld the arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats issued by Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX.  In other news, Eli Bremer, R-CO, is throwing his hat into the ring for a U.S. Senate seat in 2022.  Next, the Wyoming GOP has censured wayward Rep. Liz Cheney yet again.  Finally, Governor Tony Evers, DS-WI, has vetoed several election integrities bills.
  84. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News III– New York politicians are still angry at soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and have said they may well impeach the man so he cannot run for any statewide election ever again.  Interestingly enough, when queried by reporters about Governor Cuomo’s sexual harassment woes, Joe Biden said of his close friend and confidant that ‘Governor Cuomo sets the gold standard for Democrats.’[xviii]  Whoa, Joe.  In other political news, the Atlantic magazine reports that senile U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi will ‘most likely step down shortly after the conclusion of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.’  Sure.  Of course, she will.
  85. 2021 Tuesday R: U.S. Senate News I– Early today, the Senate planned to hold the final vote on the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Later in the day- with the help of 19 Republican scumbags- the Democrats ramrod this shyster bill through.  Once they rammed this bogus piece of dog feces through Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, trotted out the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill as the next chink in the Biden regime’s chain of collapsing the United States Cloward and Piven-style.  Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a brave patriot immediately offered fifteen amendments to this horrendous bill.  Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, told Newsmax that the Dems’ ‘infrastructure bill is going to add mountains of debt atop America’s taxpayers.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday S: Business News– Small business optimism that was riding high in July has plummeted in the first 10 days of August due to vast labor shortages.
  87. 2021 Tuesday T: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former U.S. Department of Agriculture official Richard Homan received a sentence of 180 days home confinement for his part in a bribery scandal.
  88. 2021 Tuesday U: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump expressed concern that the Biden regime’s U.S. Department of Justice will bury the Durham report should it become available for release.
  89. 2021 Tuesday V: New York State News– It appears that the headhunters have succeeded.  A morose, near-tears Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov announced that effective in 14 days, he will be vacating the office of governor of the Empire State.
  90. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Military News– The United States and twenty allied nations kick off the 2021 Southeast Asian Cooperation and Training, aka SEACAT, joint military exercises.
  91. 2021 Tuesday X: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1684 what with a $208 million jackpot on the line: 29, 45, 50, 59, 62, and Mega 12.  Out of 89,761 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,638 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday Y: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Oregon University volleyball coaches said today that they have the right to discipline their players over their political views.  Welcome BIG BROTHER.
  93. 2021 Tuesday Z: The Wrap-Up– It is better late than never, folks.  Last night, our computer systems were under continuous attack, either from the Chi-Coms or from our own government.  A miniscule blogging site such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM one would think would be small fish for BIG BROTHER apparatchiks going after the bigger guys but we guess NO ONE is too small for persecution and punishment.  Well, we say, “F**K them, we will continue fighting back because the American people are a free people, and we will never surrender to oppressive left-wing trash.  It is what it is, folks.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  94. 2022 Wednesday: There are so many other things of which to speak but what happened at Mar-a-Lago takes the cake.  The American people are clearly unhappy over the heavy-handedness exercised by the Justice Department and its Joestapo.  Imagine, the Joestapo arriving at your home, searching through everything, carting things away for inspection later?  All I can surmise is that the Biden regime wants to plant evidence on Donald Trump.  What will they ‘find,’ Ashley Biden’s diary, the one in which, she laments the gloomy fact that daddy, Joe, used to shower with her when she was a prepubescent girl?  We can put nothing past these people.  What I do know is this: people are angry, not just Republicans but Democrats, too.  Going down this path is un-American, one our nation can ill-afford yet the Biden regime seems to want to go down it.  I will say this: for every one of us they strike down, 10 more will spring up in their place which is why EVERYONE must rush out and begin buying firearms, ammo, and everything else they can because gun and ammo confiscation is coming soon.  Not going to be like Australia, New Zealand, or anywhere else for that matter, I can assure you.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht. 
  95. 2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus.  Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated.  We knew something was wrong with these vaccines.  It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House: BINGO!  I also fear that the millions of military-aged males deposited around the country will take to the streets just in time to keep people sequestered in their homes out of fear.  These people could very well become the Joestapo’s new Brown Shirts division, one with which to instill terror into the American people.  You heard it here first- we can put nothing past these people anymore.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht. 

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

IF one lives long enough, musical moments from the past finally are released in the way in which, they should have been.  Thus, we have “The Smile Sessions” by the Beach Boys, released on Halloween, 2011.  Many believe “Smile”- had it been released back in 1967 to counter the Beatles’ epic “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” the Rolling Stones’ “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request,” the Small Faces’ “Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake,” the Kinks’ “Something Else” and “Face to Face,” as well as other epic psychedelic masterpieces, it would have been right there with them, most likely at the top.  The other Beach Boys- could not get behind Brian’s masterpiece, the one he created with lyricist Van Dyke Parks, and thus, it was chopped up, neutered, and made blasé which was a loss for the world.  Now, however, we have it the way in which it should have been released along with loads of added material which puts the listener smack dab in the midst of the recording process.  This is one for the ages, one we hope everyone will rush out, give a listen, and then add it to your ever-burgeoning collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music- you can thank us later.

[iv] Moral of the story for the Brits- remember: Black Lives Matter, you cannot be gunning them down.  At least the United States is not the only nation contending with civil unrest in the streets.

[v] Commercials to this day continue encouraging citizens to come forth and join in class-action lawsuits against Monsanto, which is fine but whatever happened to personal responsibility?  When using f**king poisons, use protective gear!

[xviii] The ersatz president had more to say of his good friend, Governor Cuomo: “He’s done a hell of a job” and it’s “so sad to see him go.”  One groper to another.  In other Cuomo-related news, politicians such as former Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey and Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ 2nd congressional district, are demanding that investigations into the crumbling governor and unnecessary nursing home deaths for which, he bears SOLE RESPONSIBILITY continue.

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.

  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.

  69. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms the Honorable Christopher A. Wray the next head of the FBI, thus ending the era of the corrupt James Comey.  Elsewhere, in Herat, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again when a bomb blast at the Jawadia Shia Mosque kills at least 30 and injures and maims countless others.  Got to love the religion!  Next, famed keyboardist with the rock band, Steppenwolf- Goldy McJohn- died in Seattle, Washington, on this date from a heart attack; he was 72 years old.

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.

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.

Currently, Joe is shy 93,140 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[viii]

[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.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0909 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Verbenas and Saguaros.”  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 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.

190. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JULY 09, 2022

2018 Monday: President Donald J. Trump announces his second pick for the U.S. Supreme Court: Brett Kavanaugh. In order to take the seat of his mentor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Kavanaugh would have to undergo one of the most grueling confirmation processes heretofore seen in recent times in this country. Eventually, he would persevere but the Democrats in the U.S. Senate did everything imaginable to destroy this excellent jurist. God bless you, Justice Kavanaugh.

Gavin Newsom shares NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the numbers for the Aloha State: 1,094 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 811 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the numbers for the Evergreen State (a place we call the “Ever-Red State” because of its communist politics): 38,517 confirmed cases, 1,394 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

  68. 2020 Thursday C: On the final day of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term, the high court handed down two decisions, both regarding President Donald J. Trump.  First, in Trump v. Vance (Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.  
  69. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look.  WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment. 
  70. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 186,796,737 confirmed cases, +490,353, 4,034,388 confirmed deaths, +8,623 and 170,860,616 confirmed recoveries, +405,277.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,707,369 confirmed cases, UP 30,476 from yesterday’s reporting, 622,665 confirmed deaths, UP 452, [vii] and 29,221,947 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,753.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 304,305 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.

[xiv]        
  75. 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 $4.308 per gallon, $3.012 in Florida, $4.040 in Hawaii, and $3.827 in Washington state. [xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Vermont: $3.046.  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- Burkina Faso: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon. [xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,502,613,982,101 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 Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here we are, Day No. 170 for the Biden regime to have usurped power from the rightful president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 108 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, aka the gibbering jackal, aka the screeching banshee, aka the tittering orangutan to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border.  Today is also 14 days since her first and last visit to the border and we don’t expect to see her back at the border until President Donald J. Trump visits the region again.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the stats for the illegal alien calamity for which the Biden regime bears 150-percent responsibility as presented by One America News channel: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the riffraff crossing the southern border: $570,053,440.  Next, here are the costs of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens this year (2): $207,693,398,016.  Next, (3) this is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year: 2,128,691.  Finally, (4) Total Number of illegal aliens estimated to be roaming the country: 36,128,692.  Note- this is a conservative effort as we at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have as far back as 2009 when our blog underwent founding believe the number then was between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the truer number of illegal aliens lurking in America’s shadows is closer to 75-100 million.  Time to round them up and to begin deporting this human fecal matter back to whence they came.   If we want to keep the brats, let’s put them into military academies and then use them to fight Third World regime change wars.
  78. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Following the brutal assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, at least two Americans are among the 17 suspected assassins scooped up by Haitian law enforcement.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse as they normally do in Haiti, Port-au-Prince is begging that the United States send them troops to help them quell the violence.  Time for ‘Papa Doc’ and the Ton-Ton Macoute to come back and restore order, i.e., maybe a little bit of cannibalism will get everyone back in line?
  79. 2021 Friday I: Joe Biden News I– Slobbering Joe Biden is pushing Russia’s Vladimir Putin to do something about hacking U.S. companies.  Next, decrepit old Joe has nominated failed Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti to become the next U.S. ambassador to India.  Next, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece told him to fire holdover from the Trump presidency, Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul after he refused to resign.  Apparently, Democrats and their allied hacks in labor unions and advocates for welfare despised the guy and he had to go.  Thus he did.  C’est la vie.
  80. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Democratic leaders are doing what they do best and that is threatening another long, sweltering summer of unmitigated violence.  I say, ‘we give it to them!’ Next, the first group to appear before House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘January 06, 2021, Select Committee’ will be Capitol Hill law enforcement officers when the panel begins.  These cops- under control of Speaker “Mumbles”- will be the first panel to dance to Pelosi’s jig.  Will they be the ones we have seen on film welcoming protesters and directing them as to where to go inside the U.S. Capitol on that day?  We expect the False Flag Operation orchestrated by the nonagenarian speaker and her cohorts will be evident for what it is: a load of hooey.
  81. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Lt. General Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., is endorsing Vernon Jones in his bid to unseat extremely unpopular RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, he reacted angrily to the BS flowing out of the White House regarding the state’s cleaning up of its voting system and said that ‘BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lying about the Peach State’s changes to its voting laws.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, is back to beating a dead horse, “Medicare for All.”  Enough already, “Pucker Puss.”
  82. 2021 Friday L: Political News III– Former governor and UN ambassador under President Donald J. Trump, Nikki Haley, put forth two endorsements today (not that they matter) in two gubernatorial races in the nation.  First, in New Jersey, she has endorsed Republican Jack Ciattarelli and in Virginia, Republican Glenn Youngkin.  We shall see what happens.  Oh, President Donald J. Trump calls Virginia Democratic-Socialist candidate Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe a ‘political hack.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s rushed withdrawal from Afghanistan that it reignites the fears of the terrorists coming here.
  83. 2021 Friday M: Political News IV– In other political news, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that ‘buyers of Hunter Biden’s ‘art’ will remain ANONYMOUS.  Folks, can you fathom what would happen if say Baron Trump was painting artworks and selling them for hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars?  Ye gods, folks, there would be so many investigations on Capitol Hill that all other work of government would come to a screeching halt so every moment of every waking day could be spent investigation such an outrage.  Yet, when crack-headed pedophile Hunter Biden does it, it’s NO big deal.  Retribution is coming folks and it’s going to hit the Democrats like a tidal wave beginning this September when California boots Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  The big day is September 14.  EVERYONE VOTE.
  84. 2021 Friday N: Moron News I– We haven’t had any Moron News lately but little Sandy Cortez, aka “The Fly,” aka “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” aka “AOC,” is blaming fossil fuel executives for flooded New York City subways.  That’s like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, blaming the horrible forest fire in northern California on ‘global warming,’ aka ‘climate change,’ aka ‘extreme weather,’ or whatever other moniker they choose to put on it when it’s failure to clean the forests and to continue building water infrastructure so that when crises hit- like the ongoing drought- water is available to offset it.  Both Sandy Cortez and “Nazi” Newsom are MORONS.  At least, California is going to get him out on September 14 (unless, of course, the ‘fix is in’ which it might be).  As for AOC and her subways, Baby Girl- if I can call you that- the reason the subways are flooded is because NYC is spending money on social re-engineering projects instead of doing what must be done and that is to maintain and improve existing infrastructure.  God knows there’s more than enough tax dollars in both the city and in the Empire State.
  85. 2021 Friday O: Federal and State Court News– North Dakota is suing the Biden regime over its cancelation of new fossil fuel contracts on public lands.  Good.  Sue the heck out of them.
  86. 2021 Friday P: Fake News I– John King of CNN- pompous, conceited ass- is upset by Alabama GOP Senate candidate Jessica Taylor’s new ad in which a rocket ‘launches’ liberal ideas and values into space and she mispronounces the name of our ‘esteemed “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  The fake news-spouting hack called the ad ‘VILE!’  Ah, wah, wah, wah, John, STFU.  Ms. Taylor is in the running to replace retiring Senator Richard Shelby.
  87. 2021 Friday Q: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump endorses former secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior Ryan Zinke in his bid to return to Congress from the great state of Montana.
  88. 2021 Friday R: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stay tuned for the results of Mega Millions Draw #1675 with a $94 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers for tonight’s draw: 06, 37, 39, 41, 46, and Mega 17.  Out of 52,071 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $14,270.

1941 Monday: During the Nazi drive into the Soviet Union, a pro-Nazi group declares the independence of the Ukraine.

Trump.

Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,468,462,511,078 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 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 position).[xvi] 
  75. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 99 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in command of the southern border and Day No. 5 since her first and only visit to view the destructiveness caused by the policies of Barack Hussein Obama (who is the voice in slobbering Joe Biden’s earpiece).  Speaking of the border, President Donald J. Trump and Texas Governor Greg Abbott are touring the border today, appearing in the epicenter of the invasion instead of doing photo ops in quiet sectors like “Kooky Kamala.”   While in Texas, President Trump says that secure borders and fair elections are the keys to a prosperous and safe United States.’  He also said that not only has Joe Biden ‘sabotaged’ the border wall and that his border policies are ‘absolutely depraved.’  Former Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan says that ‘President Trump’s visit to the southern border is one of actual substance.’
  76. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping celebrated ‘communist China’s irreversible rise on the world stage’ at the 100th anniversary celebrations of the Chi-Com Party.  Woo-oo.  Big dictator and all.  In other thug news, the government of the Central African Republic is expressing its displeasure with human rights watchers who claim the Russian military advisers in the country are committing human rights abuses on the populace as they do battle with crazed rebels.  The Russians would never misbehave now, would they?  Speaking of both the Russians and the Chi-Coms, Japanese government official Yasuhide Nakayama is warning his American counterparts to beware of a possible joint-Russian-Chi-Com attack on Hawaii as they also attack Taiwan.  We are witnessing a buildup of power by the world’s totalitarian regimes while our ‘president’ plays pocket pool in the basement of the White House.  Not good.
  77. 2021 Wednesday H: Political News I– Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar is little more than a ‘voice for Hamas.’  The screeching harpy has been calling the United States a ‘terrorist nation.’  (Note- strip this stick-like skank of her citizenship along with whatever family members residing in the U.S. and deport them back to Somalia or Eritrea or wherever the f**k they came).   Elsewhere, as “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ star continues to rise, CBS and the Washington Post are trying to launch weak attacks on the popular politician to try to tarnish him.
  78. 2021 Wednesday I: Political News II– Moving on, reports from within the office of ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris continue the tarnish the already tarnished reputation of the woman who is supposedly the ‘vice president.’  She apparently cannot lead her way out of a paper bag and various staff members are throwing their hands up in the air claiming, “IT’S TOO CHAOTIC!”  We all know Joe is not going to last forever unless, of course, as a hologram so one would think the Dems would be scrambling for a qualified number two.  Members working for Joe Biden say that ‘it begins at the top.’  We are beginning a countdown as to how long this goober is going to last.  (We suspect she will be out by November).
  79. 2021 Wednesday J: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I–  Bill Cosby is walking free today after a Pennsylvania judge threw out his conviction.   Meanwhile, actor Allison Mack got three years in prison and a hefty fine for her role in supplying sex slaves to NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere.  She originally faced 7-to-14 years in the slammer but was able to settle on three years.  Elsewhere, the FBI is moving to offense to counter moves made by cyberhackers.
  80. 2021 Wednesday K: Weather News I– The Pacific Northwest- unaccustomed to temperatures outside the high 80s on occasion are claiming they have lost at least 100 people due to the recent heat wave.  It does at times get flipping hot there and any temps in the mid-to-high 90s are seen as intolerable.  Still, it allows them to claim that global warming is destroying the planet.  (We expect it’s also going to be a FRIGID winter).
  81. 2021 Wednesday L: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former 13th and 21st U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, a big proponent of regime-change wars, died in Taos, N.M., today at age 88 from multiple myeloma.  He was both the youngest and the oldest person to serve in this position.  Many now suspect that he and then-Vice President Dick Cheney were instrumental in pushing President George W. Bush into invading Iraq on the cheap with NO PLAN for what was to come after the toppling of Saddam Hussein.  It was this ‘invasion-on-the-cheap’ and lack of a plan that led to countless deaths of American troops and Iraqi civilians as the insurgency broke out.  We don’t doubt Secretary Rumsfeld’s patriotism; however, we think he and Cheney did it as a means of self-enrichment through the military-industrial-political complex.
  82. 2021 Wednesday M: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former 13th and 21st U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, a big proponent of regime-change wars, died in Taos, N.M., today at age 88 from multiple myeloma.  He was both the youngest and the oldest person to serve in this position.  Many now suspect that he and then-Vice President Dick Cheney were instrumental in pushing President George W. Bush into invading Iraq on the cheap with NO PLAN for what was to come after the toppling of Saddam Hussein.  It was this ‘invasion-on-the-cheap’ and lack of a plan that led to countless deaths of American troops and Iraqi civilians as the insurgency broke out.  We don’t doubt Secretary Rumsfeld’s patriotism; however, we think he and Cheney did it as a means of self-enrichment through the military-industrial-political complex.
  83. 2021 Wednesday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump calls for the pathetic loser General Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who is the American version of German officers Generaloberst Alfred Jodl and Field Marshall Wilhelm Keitel, to resign.  (Note- in our view, nothing is worse than a political general and General Milley is a prime example, one as corrupt and as criminal as were Jodl and Keitel who met their end on the gallows following World War II).  In other Trump-related news, new statistics show that he was way up in 2020 when it comes to non-college-educated Hispanics.
  84. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3573 with a $60 million pot on the line: 12, 13, 16, 18, 25, and Mega 25.  Out of 130,291, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $47,865.  The winning ticket was sold at the Fast and Easy Mart in Benicia, CA 94510.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #859: 24, 29, 50, 65, 66, and Mega 14.  Out of 49,322 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,712 apiece.
  85. 2021 Wednesday:  Friends, please stick around but note, we may be toning things down a bit what with increased pressure from the outside.  Joe Biden is GREAT, communist China WONDERFUL, illegal aliens DELIGHTFUL.  Nancy Pelosi is a GENIUS, AOC a MENSA graduate, and BIG GOVERNMENT preferable to freedom and liberty.  Yes, we are using Newspeak Dictionary 2021.

[i] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering because it was so damned amazing.

[ii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[iii] Democrats in 2020 now want to lower the voting age to 16-year-olds as well as to felons, illegal aliens, and others who should not be able to vote.  If anything, voting age should be raised to 35 because most Americans do not begin undergoing the maturation process as they did 50 or more years ago.  What we are saying is that young people are little more than a bunch of sissies who should never be able to vote.  Let us restore it as the Constitution presented it that people of property should be the only ones able to vote.  You must have a stake in the country to do what’s right for her.

[iv] It’s no wonder as to WHY Jimmy Carter served but one term as president.  The guy was a whoosie.
