  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.

  62. 2015 Tuesday: As the European Union Muslim ‘refugee’ and ‘migrant’ crisis continues causing problems for the nations of Eastern Europe, Hungary says, “ENOUGH!” and seals its border with Serbia with rows and rows of concertina razor wire.  This strands loads of Muslims in a country with a negative history towards followers of the Prophet Mohammad.

  66. 2019 Sunday: Famed member of the East Coast rock band, the Cars[v]– Ric Ocasek (guitars/vocals/keyboards 1976-1988 / 2010-present)- is found dead in his home in New York City on this date; he was 75.  Meanwhile, Hong Kong freedom protesters outside the British Embassy find themselves under fire from the authorities with tear gas and water canyons.  Protests there are growing in momentum as the people continue protesting the Chi-Coms.
  67. 2020 Tuesday: Hurricane Sally is expected to become a Cat 1 storm when it makes landfall later today along the coastlines of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.  Residents are bracing for the worst and FEMA is on site.  Meanwhile, at the White House, the foreign ministers of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates are signing the historic peace agreement hammered out by the Trump administration between those Arab nations and Israel.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is also there signing the documents along with President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday 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: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!
  73. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,995.60, UP 2.27 points (+0.008%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,190.32, UP 133.67 points (+1.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,401.20, UP 17.66 points (+0.52%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.90 per troy oz., -4.30 (-0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $27.34 per troy ounce, -0.119 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $978.40 per troy oz, -3.80 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, -0.006 (-0.20%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,417.50 per troy oz., +8.00 (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.39 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.29%).  Today, COFFEE is $124.30 per metric ton, +1.00 (+0.81).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.78 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them.  Today, communist China’s ally, the World Trade Organization released a ruling that says ‘the U.S. violated international regulations by imposing trade tariffs on $278 billion of Chi-Com goods entering the U.S.’  Stop the crying, Beijing, this is NOTHING ruling, and the U.S. will continue punishing you, authoritarian SOBS.
  74. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,150,151 confirmed cases, +480,596, 4,671,400 confirmed deaths, +8,373 and 203,826,456 confirmed recoveries, +454,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,432,847 confirmed cases, UP 144,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 684,572 confirmed deaths, UP 2,231,[vi] and 32,244,493 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,709.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]   
  75. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 366,118 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 37,960 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  76. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,518,943 confirmed cases, 67,632 confirmed deaths, and 2,378,010 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,499,061 confirmed cases, 49,254 confirmed deaths, and 2,413,074 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 73,268 confirmed cases, 671 confirmed deaths, and 72,597 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 615,582 confirmed cases, 7,153 confirmed deaths, and 258,825 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New York: they have 2,423,298 confirmed cases, 55,269 confirmed deaths, and 2,116,680 confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  77. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,202,212 confirmed cases, 7,452 confirmed deaths, and 1,112,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Pierre and Miquelon, 213th area on the list: 31 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 30 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  78. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,814.39, UP 236.82 points (+0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,161.53, UP 123.77 points (+0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,480.70, UP 37.65 points (+0.85%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.60 per barrel, +2.13 (+3.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,795.20 per troy oz., -11.90 (-0.66%) while the price of SILVER is $23.89 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $941.90 per troy oz, +3.20 (+0.34%) while the price of COPPER is $4.41 per pound, +0.09 (+2.06%).

[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.85.     In Falklands Island Pound, one greenback equals 0.73 and in Fijian Dollar, a buck equal 2.07 and in French Pacific Franc, one dollar equals 100.70 of theirs. [xiii]        
  79. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.391 per gallon, $3.084 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.876 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Delaware: $2.998.  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- Liechtenstein: $6.865 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,764,701,405,049 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 Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 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.
  80. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, has a new bill with which to deny U.S. recognition of the Taliban ‘government’ in Afghanistan.  His GOP colleagues have sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken demanding the U.S. State Department slap a designation of ‘foreign terror group’ atop the Taliban which they are.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban 2.0 is the same terror group it has always been.’
  81. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 174 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle down along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 81 since her singular visit anywhere in the vicinity of the border.  What a disaster.  
  82. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korean continues demonstrating that they’re ‘still with us’ by test-firing cruise missiles into waters near Japan and South Korea.  When President Donald J. Trump was in office, relations between the so-called ‘hermit kingdom’ and the United States were relatively cordial whereas now, the North Koreans are ramping up their activities.
  83. 2021 Wednesday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The U.S. Department of Defense and Health and the Department of Human Services is planning on buying 1.4 million doses of Regeneron.  In other (BOGUS) news we heard today, ‘immigrants (i.e., ILLEGAL) will reportedly have to show ‘proof of Chi-Vi vaccination before swarming across the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Sure, right- how is this going to work?  Next, as the Biden regime continues pushing the idea of Chi-Vi booster shots atop 2-3 immunizations for the Wuhan Virus, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that MORE info regarding the need for such ‘boosters’ must be handed over by the Biden regime’s leaders.
  84. 2021 Wednesday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-And Authoritarianism News– As demands from the illegitimate regime in the White House grow for everyone to get vaccinated with the Chi-Vi vaccines, calls for ‘religious exemptions’ are on the increase.  We suspect that the Christian Scientist and Jehovah’s Witnesses’ churches are going to increase membership.
  85. 2021 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.77 (2) AstraZeneca $56.45 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.42 (4) BioNTech $355.25 (5) Moderna $434.46.  Follow the money, folks, follow the money.  All this talk of booster shots on top of the vaccines is crazy what with more and more reports about problems caused by the vaccines continue to proliferate.  IF you seek the truth, you must watch One America News and Newsmax.  The vaccines are causing far more problems than are reported in the mainstream media, which is not right, especially when European nations now are backing away from any discussion of booster shots.  The only reason the talk of booster shots is intensifying is because the Deep State and the Democrats are getting rich off them.  Look at that pig, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci- this guy is growing wealthy off the suffering of the American people.
  86. 2021 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.87 (2) General Dynamics: $198.48 (3) Boeing: $214.22 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.07 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $355.74.  This is how the Deep State and elected members of Congress grow rich, investing in companies in which they send billions of dollars.  This is not only illegal but highly immoral.
  87. 2021 Wednesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.01 (3) Honeywell: $221.69 (4) 3M: $184.19 (5) Teijen: $1,646.00.  These stocks are going to take off like rockets as the Deep State and elected members of Congress- and their staffers- continue investing in these firms either through themselves or via straw persons such as, uh, well, like Hunter Biden.
  88. 2021 Wednesday N: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $110.81 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.88 (3) Maple Leaf Foods Inc./Tofurkey: $27.11.  Like it or not, this is the next push as the Green New Deal continues becoming a part of our lives whether we want it to be or we don’t.  All one need do is to watch the movie, “Soylent Green” starring Edward G. Robinson and Charlton Heston.  Popular culture has a way of becoming reality if one lives long enough.
  89. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden- ever a man of science- says that ‘human activity is the root cause of extreme weather.’  Next, Joe Biden has demanded that Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, come to the White House so he can apply pressure on them to vote for his bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’
  90. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new McLaughlin poll says that ‘Joe Biden’s approval numbers have cratered, the American people are concerned, and that NO one likes “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- my colleagues in California tell me that Kamala Harris is detested by almost everyone in the state and the only good thing about her serving in the regime is that it gets her out of their state.  Chef Itzi).
  91. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– It would appear the Biden regime is tossing Saudi Arabia to the wolves what with the withdrawal of its top anti-missile defense systems in the country.  What the hell is going on here?  In other regime-related news, one of the regime’s favorites and purported candidate for U.S. ambassador to Ukraine- Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman- says if ‘what we hear about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, he must go.’  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Both of these men are absolute disgraces. [xvii].  Next, the U.S. Army says that soldiers refusing to get the ‘VID vaccinations may be forced out of the Army with less-than-honorable discharges.’  Yet, the U.S. Postal Service and elected members of Congress and their staffers do NOT have to undergo vaccination.  WTF!
  92. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– Something very strange occurred today when the Biden regime trotted out an enfeebled old Joe Biden to hold a Zoom conference with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson of England in which, the three leaders announced a new triumvirate of sorts with which to help the Aussies obtain nuclear-powered submarines.  Although the Chi-Coms were not mentioned, they acted as though this new alignment of the BIG THREE nations would counter Beijing’s ambitions in the region.  Most observers, however, believe the Brits and the Aussies came to senile Joe Biden’s aid so as to deflect all the negative press coverage it has been getting.  Even more embarrassing is that slobbering Joe could not even pull the name of the Australian leader out of his crumbling mind.  This was embarrassing and it also demonstrated that both Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison are in the tank for the Biden regime.  This is disgraceful and besides- we also believe the three countries are in the tank with the Chi-Coms, sort of a fait accompli.
  93. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Pope Francis- ever a creature of the left- says that ‘yes, abortion is murder but urges U.S. Roman Catholic bishops NOT to be political by denying so-called ‘Catholic politicians’ Holy Communion.  Folks, is the Pope on the Pro-Death money-go-round, too?  Like BIG PHARMA/vaccine manufacturers, Planned Parenthood and other infanticide-promoting organizations bestow BILLIONS of dollars upon left-wing and unscrupulous politicians and others.  It is akin to one selling their soul to Satan.
  94. 2021 Wednesday T: Moron News I– After little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez attended the $30,000 per plate Met Gala wearing a donated $35,000 designer dress with ‘tax the rich’ stenciled on the back of it, conservative groups are demanding an ethics investigation into perhaps the stupidest member of the U.S. House of Representatives which is indeed saying a lot.  We doubt any ethics investigation will go anywhere.  Look at Ilhan Omar, that woman married her brother to defraud U.S. immigration authorities and she is doing A-Okay.
  95. 2021 Wednesday U: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3595 what with a $17 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 07, 28, 45, and Mega 08.  Out of 108,351 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,854 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Dorose Liquor in Chatsworth, CA 91311 and (2) 7-Eleven in Vacaville, CA 95688. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #885 with a jackpot of $432 million up for grabs: 01, 04, 18, 46, 62, and Power 25.  Out of 93,905 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for $2,581,768.  The winning ticket was sold at the General Store in Compton, California 90222.
  96. 2021 Wednesday V: The Wrap-Up– As someone who lives in Hawaii, I do not have an opinion on the recall election in California.  However, my colleagues living there say that it may have been a good thing if the Republican National Committee had dumped millions of dollars in the state to wage 24/7 ads blasting what they say is the ‘worst governor in the nation.’  Instead, it became a personality battle between Larry Elder and Governor Gavin Newsom, a battle that could not be won no matter how likable Mr. Elder is and how bad Governor Newsom is.  This is the Democrat Party’s secret weapon- Republican ambivalence.  They look at California and say, “We can’t win there,” and thus they send no money to help turn the tide.  The Republicans say, ‘move forward, we will return next year.’  No, GOP, you won’t.  The numbers of illegals flooding the state and the corruption surrounding the election system there is going to prevent that from occurring just as it will help empower Democrats to win the remaining few House seats currently held by Republicans.  You had your chance, and you blew it, all because the GOP itself is corrupt and unwilling to fight fire with fire.  My colleagues said the proof of election fraud is in the pudding: in less than an hour after the polls closed, the results were in. Amazing how that happens, and Governor Newsom won by Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro numbers.  California is lost forever.
  97. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day- Friends, we wish that Rush Limbaugh were still with us because he did predict that the Dems would discover a way by which, they could make elections meaningless and boy was he right.  They have tried to topple our system of elections through corrupting them just as they have by flooding the country with loads of illegal aliens.  The tricky thing about the illegal aliens is that many of them still cling to Christianity, a religion the Democrats despise and detest.  They also want them to get abortions- plenty of them- something your average illegal does not seek because of love of children.  Add to that the fact that the leftists are blatant socialists and have mobs of storm-troopers in the street and one can understand WHY the illegals are drifting more and more to the right and are eagerly registering as Republicans even though- technically- if we abide by the law- they cannot.  However, if it’s good enough for the Dems then it’s good enough for us.  I think it’s going to be  good election cycle.  The question is, can we maintain the wins or will we need to outlaw the Democratic Party?  I say, ‘OUTLAW THEM.’  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0953 a 7” x 5” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Lone Rose.”  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:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On October 08, 1978, Cheap Trick released their first live album, “Live at Budokan.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is 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).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

Happy birthday, Chef T!


[i] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[ii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

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

Milley, says that ‘his calls to his Chi-Com ‘counterpart’ (we believe, MASTER) were designed to prevent conflict between the Chi-Coms and the U.S.  Folks, we believe that Milley is a creature of Beijing.  This is definitely NOT good.

  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.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 319,398 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 84,680 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

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.
  85. 2021 Monday W: Business News– The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration- the NHTSA for short- is probing issues regarding autopilot in Tesla motor vehicles.
  86. 2021 Monday X: Mass Shootings News– It appears to have been a quiet weekend in Chicago what with eight dead and fifty-six injured in shootings across the Windy City.
  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.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0924 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “You Forgot My Tip.”  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:

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.

Muhammad Ali), “Honky-Tonk Women” by the Rolling Stones, and Thin Lizzy featuring Ricky Warwick:

  1. 155 Friday: The reign of the 10th Roman Catholic Pope St. Pius I ends on this date.  He first became the Vicar of Christ on January 11, 140, and guided his flock on its quest to be one with Christ until today.  His successor- the 11th leader of all Christendom- St. Anicetus- picked up his Holy Cross and carried it forward until April 20, 166.
  2. 1276 Saturday: The reign of the 186th Roman Catholic Pope Adrian V begins on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until August 18 of this year.

  5. 1767 Saturday: John Quincy Adams, a future Federalist, then a Democratic-Republican, then a National Republican, then an Anti-Masonic before finally becoming a Whig and future sixth president of the United States, is born in Braintree, Massachusetts.  He would also serve the nation as its 8th U.S. secretary of state.  In this capacity, he would serve under President James Monroe from September 22, 1817, until March 04, 1825.
  6. 1786 Tuesday: Morocco agreed to stop attacking American ships in the Mediterranean Sea for a payment of $10,000.  Up until then, swarms of Arab ships pirated by fanatical Muslim lunatics would attack lone American vessels, rob them of cargo, and enslave the sailors.

  8. 1798 Wednesday: The U.S. Congress reestablished The United States Marine Corps through the passage of “An Act for Establishing a Marine Corps,” which also created the U.S. Marine Band.  An act passed by the Continental Congress on November 10, 1775, commissioned the Marine Corps originally.  
  9. 1804 Wednesday: Vice President Aaron Burr mortally wounded former Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton during a pistol duel in Weehawken, New Jersey.
  10. 1812 Saturday: During the War of 1812, the United States launches an invasion of Canada across the Detroit Frontier.  Although somewhat successful at first, the Canucks would rally and push back the invaders which made it impossible for the U.S. to incorporate all of Canada into the United States.  Sad.
  11. 1848 Tuesday: In London, England, the Waterloo Train Station opens for business.
  12. 1859 Monday: Big Ben, the great bell inside the London clock tower chimed for the first time.
  13. 1864 Monday: Confederate forces led by General Jubal Early commenced an invasion of Washington, D.C.; however, they retreated the following day due to the arrival of Union reinforcements.  
  14. 1889 Thursday: In Mexico, Tijuana becomes not only a city but an international den of iniquity.  Americans would flock there for the powerful booze, the hot but diseased chicks, and gambling tables.  Que la chingas!
  15. 1905 Tuesday: Black intellectuals in the United States organize the Niagara Movement at Niagara Falls, New York.
  16. 1914 Saturday: Babe Ruth made his Major League Baseball debut, pitching the Boston Red Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians.
  17. 1915 Sunday: During World War I, the German battle cruiser “Konigsberg,” sinks off Dar-es-Salam, Africa.  Meanwhile, the Chicago Sunday Tribune ran an article titled. “Blues is Jazz and Jazz is Blues.”  (It’s believed to be one of the earliest, if not the earliest uses of the word “jazz” as a musical term in a newspaper).
  18. 1921 Monday: The 10th U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Howard Taft (69th overall U.S. Supreme Court justice) assumed his position on the high court on this date.  A former president, President Warren G.

  21. 1937 Sunday: Famed American composer and pianist, George Gershwin died from a brain tumor in a Los Angeles hospital at age 38 on this date.
  22. 1941 Friday: The 82nd U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Robert H.

Stone.  Jackson served from today until October 09, 1954. 
  23. 1943 Sunday: During World War II, the U.S. 45th Division captures the airport at Comiso, Sicily; however, the German Hermann Goering Panzer Division launches a stiff counterattack.  Meanwhile, in the USSR, the Battle of Kursk enters its seventh day as the Axis throws everything it has against the Soviet defenses while the Soviets repeatedly counterattack.
  24. 1944 Tuesday: President Franklin Delano Roosevelt announces he will run for a fourth term.   Of course, many Americans are horrified at the idea, especially since they were appalled at his third run.  NO American president had ever run for more than two terms in the White House because President George Washington did NOT run for more than two terms.  Still, World War II was continuing, and many were fearful of ‘changing horses in the middle of the stream.’
  25. 1946 Thursday: In Malden, Massachusetts, future U.S. senator representing his home state, Ed Markey, Democrat, is born.  He would enter the U.S. Senate on July 16, 2013, and would prove to be one of the worst, far-left liberal lunatic senators in the once august body.  Worse, to keep a grip on his seat, he would side with nuts like Sandy Cortez, the dingbat from New York.  
  26. 1948 Sunday: During the War of Independence, the Arabs bombard Jerusalem from the air.  This would lead to the Israelis lighting up Cairo.

  30. 1955 Monday: The U.S. Congress authorizes all United States money to bear the inscription, “In God We Trust.”  Meanwhile at Lowry, Colorado, military authorities dedicated the U.S. Air Force Academy.

  33. 1962 Wednesday: The first transatlantic TV transmission went through the Telstar I satellite.
  34. 1966 Monday: In Northern Ireland, future lead guitarist and vocalist, Ricky Warwick, with the Anglo-Irish American hard rock band, Thin Lizzy[i], is born.  He would perform with the group from 2010 to the present.
  35. 1969 Friday: The Rolling Stones[ii] release the single, “Honky-tonk Women.”  When fans heard it on the radio, they went insane over it, so great was the song with its lyrics about loose women, altered states of mind, and its clattering cowbell, sales soared almost immediately.  We hope everyone seeks this tune and the album on which it appeared, “The Rolling Stones Greatest Hits, Volume 2 Through the Past Darkly” out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music.
  36. 1972 Tuesday: The World Chess Championship opened as grandmasters Bobby Fischer of the United States and defending champion Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union began play in Reykjavik, Iceland.  After 21 games, Fischer won the championship.
  37. 1975 Friday: Chinese archaeologists discover a three-acre burial site with more than 6,000 clay statues of warriors dating as early as 221 B.C.  NO one knows who created them or left them there.  Some speculate space aliens had a hand in it.

  46. 2005 Monday: In Xinjiang province in western China, a mine explosion kills at least 22 miners while another 35 were rescued.  Sadly, another 30 or so are still missing. Most likely, these lost miners were Uighur slaves, imprisoned unfairly by a harsh communist regime.  We believe the Chi-Coms to be Nationalist Socialists, i.e., Nazis, because they are seeking to conquer the world, to have a slave-based culture, and to exterminate those with whom they disagree: religious minorities, ethnicities, and other societal misfits, i.e., homosexuals, the disabled, and the mentally deficient.
  47. 2006 Tuesday: As Israel continues weathering criticism about how badly the Palestinians are supposedly treated says that there are not food shortages or medicine shortages even though the terminals supplying the Gaza Strip are under constant threat of attack nearly every day by terrorists.  The Hamas thugs want the people to suffer so they can then point to them, “See!  See!  The Israelis are mean to us, wah, wah, wah!”
  48. 2007 Wednesday: The Supreme Court of Libya upholds the death sentences of six Bulgarian nurses and one Palestinian doctor who had been tried and convicted of deliberately infecting more than 400 children with HIV-AIDS.  Who the f**k would do something as despicable as this?
  49. 2008 Friday: The Chi-Com authorities inform restaurant owners in Beijing NOT to serve any dog meat on its menus during the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics but donkey meat and other exotics like bats and scorpions are fine.  Enjoy.  (In 2020 when Xi Jinping let the bat flu loose upon the world, they had the nerve to point fingers at the Wuhan wet market when in fact, it came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology).
  50. 2009 Saturday: U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama addresses the parliament of the nation of Ghana today.
  51. 2010 Sunday: Colton Harris-Moore, the so-called “Barefoot Bandit,” is apprehended by the authorities in the Bahamas.   Elsewhere, in Kampala, Uganda, Al-Shabab carries out a terrorist bombing after pledging its loyalty to al-Qaida that kills at least 64 poor souls and messes up the lives of numerous others.

  53. 2012 Wednesday:  Astronomers announce the discovery of the fifth moon of Pluto S/2012 P1.  Meanwhile, the GOP-controlled U.S. House of Representatives in another show of bravado but which is little more than an empty exercise votes for the 33rd time to repeal President Barack Hussein Obama’s signature achievement, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka the PPACA or Obamacare for short.  Wow.  Waste time doing nothing you losers.
  54. 2013 Thursday: The NASA New Horizons team release photos of Pluto’s largest moon, Chiron, showing that it is the size of Texas and covered in ice.  Elsewhere, exiled Iranians produce information for the global press that shows the IRG thugs have nuclear facilities buried beneath a mountain near the town of Damavand.  Time to drop some bunker-busting nukes on the site.
  55. 2014 Friday: LeBron James, former member of the Miami Heat, announces he will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the town he abandoned several years earlier, so he could win an NBA ring in Miami.  Elsewhere, after a dispute with Iraq’s Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki goes unresolved, Kurdish members of parliament bolt the government and return home where the Peshmerga takes control of two northern oil fields.
  56. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Greece continues negotiations with its creditors after refusing proposed austerity measures; however, the Greek government proposal includes reforms like those rejected by voters in a recent referendum.  Elsewhere, Boko Haram continues causing problems in the African nation of Chad, particularly in the nation’s capital city of N’Djamena.  A terrorist dressed in a burqa detonates a bomb that delivers at least 14 people kicking and screaming to hang with Allah far sooner than any of them planned while leaving loads more wishing they have gone, too.  What the hell is wrong with these savages?  Others of their ilk attack Maiduguri in Nigeria, killing at least one person and leaving others injured.
  57. 2016 Monday:  The governor of Nagaland, India, announces a ban on all dog meat sold as food.  Up until now, the people of this distant Indian state imported dogs as a delicacy.  From this point forward, it must stop.  Good for them.  Now, if ONLY the Chinese would follow suit and close their infamous wet markets where plague after plague after plague emanates.  Meanwhile, the U.S. says it’s going to send an additional 500 troops to clean up President Barack Hussein Obama’s mess in Iraq what with the ISIS garbage running amok.
  58. 2017 Tuesday: Emails released by Donald Trump Jr. revealed that he’d been told before meeting with a Russian attorney during the presidential campaign that the Russian government had information that could “incriminate” Hillary Clinton.  MSNBC “Morning Joe” (a pitiful show if ever one existed with two morons for the price of one hosting it) and former Republican (RINO) Rep. Joe Scarborough announced that he was leaving the Republican Party (good riddance), partly because of its loyalty to President Donald J. Trump.  Joe, you were never a Republican in the first place, merely a traitorous POS. 
  59. 2018 Wednesday: Always having to outdo everyone else, communist China claims to have discovered in the western part of the country where the Uighurs live the oldest stone tools outside Africa.  Estimated to be around 2.12 million years ago, made by early hominids.  Elsewhere, near the Afghan town of Kunduz, the Taliban carries out an attack on Afghan police killing at least 29 of them and wounding loads of others.
  60. 2019 Thursday: In Pueblo, Mexico, the final Volkswagen Beetles roll off the assembly line, a line of cars that began 80 years earlier.  Meanwhile, thanks to the economic mastery of President Donald J. Trump, the Stock Market hits new peaks what with the DOW Jones Industrial Average surpassing 27,000 points and the S&P 500 hitting 3,000 points.  Keep it up, Mr. President, keep it up.  Meanwhile, Tommy Robison, famed British conservative freedom fighter, receives a prison sentence of nine months in the slammer for contempt of court minus 10 weeks-time served.  His supporters protest in the streets.
  61. 2020 Saturday: 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, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 12,507,849 confirmed cases, UP 134,127, 560,460 confirmed deaths, UP 3,597, and 6,890,914 confirmed recoveries, UP 104,718.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 3,290,994 confirmed cases, UP 75,920 new cases, 136,621 confirmed deaths, UP 912, and 970,345 confirmed recoveries, UP 15,107.  Next, in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 304,297 confirmed cases, 6,851 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 1,130 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 840 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 39,218 confirmed cases, 1,424 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 187,538,384 confirmed cases, +350,136, 4,046,908 confirmed deaths, +5,921 and 171,449,408 confirmed recoveries, +341,307.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,731,593 confirmed cases, UP 8,046 from yesterday’s reporting, 622,845 confirmed deaths, UP 35,[v] and 29,242,181 confirmed recoveries, UP 8,469.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]

  67. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.312 per gallon, $3.007 in Florida, $4.046 in Hawaii, and $3.830 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- West Virginia: $3.045.  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- Mexico: $4.217 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,509,948,392,347 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 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.
  68. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day #110 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be holding this gig and her 16th day since her one and only visit to the El Paso Sector, perhaps among the quietest places on the border.  Anyhow, here are the stats as presented by One America News today as to the magnitude of both the extent of the illegal alien invasion and its cost for the American people.  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the infestation of illegal aliens: $702,955,520.  Next, (2) here is the cost this year of caring for the human refuse flowing across the border this year: $210,018,074,624.  Third, here are the numbers for illegals who have snuck their way across the border and into the United States this year alone: 2,152,517.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the massive numbers of illegals in the country as of this day: 36,152,516.  As everyone knows who has followed our website since its inception back in early 2009, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day estimated back then- 12 years ago- the number to be around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers to be closer to 75-100 million.  We must round up this garbage and bulldoze it back across the border into Mexico just as we must lay in minefields, razor wire along the banks of the Rio Grande and down its center just north of the dividing line between drug-infested Mexico and the United States.  We also must lay in razor wire across the deserts just as we must dig and maintain all manner of obstacles and trenches with which to stymie the invasion forces.  Some of us believe we should seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups or piranha fish.  We must seed the dry land with as many rattlesnakes and other poisonous reptiles so we can halt the tidal wave of illegals flooding our country.  If we don’t, the country will be lost and the Third World will be running the show.  Meanwhile, Arizona border officials apprehend more than 100 illegal aliens dumped along the border without any sorts of supplies to keep them from dying in the desert.
  69. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– At CPAC 2021 in Dallas, Texas, Donald Trump Jr. slams CNN for being a spewer of FAKE NEWS as well as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and crack-addicted and known pedophile, Hunter Biden.  Light ‘em up, we say.  Meanwhile, prior to coming to CPAC, himself, President Donald J. Trump received a huge warm welcome in Las Vegas, Nevada.   Upon his arrival in Dallas and taking the stage, the 45th president gave a barnburner of a speech in which he made it extremely clear: he is fighting on behalf of the American people.  God bless him.  Moving on, House Republicans are requesting an investigation into COVID-19 fraud.  Finally, Fort Pelosi is coming down as fencing surrounding the U.S. Capitol is being hauled away today.  Wow.
  70. 2021 Sunday H: Human-Caused Disasters– The cost to replace a collapsed bridge in Washington, D.C., will cost $25 million.  Is it not amazing how our own capital’s infrastructure is in dire straits?  Elsewhere, the death toll in the Surfside, Florida, condo collapse has now hit 90.  Speaking of Florida, the Miami-Dade County courthouse in the Miami has been shut down over structural integrity concerns.  Meanwhile, the Oregon Bootleg Fire doubles in size since Friday.
  71. 2021 Sunday I: Moron News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris is our subject for today’s Moron News.  Every time this tittering crow, this laughing jackal, this shrieking hyena, this gibbering phony opens her mouth, something surprising spills out like fecal matter does a starling’s ass.  Whining and crying about states cleaning up their voting laws and cleansing the rolls of dead voters, illegal alien voters, felons, and others unqualified to vote, she said that people living in rural communities will have challenging times sending in mail-in ballots because folks living in these areas lack…’photocopiers?’  What the hell is wrong with this nattering jaybird, this cackling toad, this prating POS?  Every time she opens her mouth, she provides the answer to anyone considering using the 25th Amendment to get Methuselah out of the White House as to WHY they can’t.  She is as stupid as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, known to some as AOC.
  72. 2021 Sunday J: Sports News I– In Game 3 of the 2021 NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks come roaring back and beat the Phoenix Suns 120-100.  The Suns lead the series 2 games to 1.
  73. 2022 Monday:  We hope today will be a slow news day.  Stick around and discover the news along with us…

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.

  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.

[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.

  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.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 303,202 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.

  61. 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: 3,822,179 confirmed cases, 63,758 confirmed deaths, and 2,074,859 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,382,980 confirmed cases, 37,985 confirmed deaths, and 2,215,966 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 38,043 confirmed cases, 518 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 454,759 confirmed cases, 5,987 confirmed deaths, and 226,690 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Guam: they have 8,394 confirmed cases, 140 confirmed deaths, and 8,155 confirmed recoveries. [ix]

[x]     
  63. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,577.37, DOWN 208.98 points (-0.60%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,663.64, UP 24.32 points (+0.17%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,343.54, DOWN 8.80 points (-0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $73.75 per barrel, +0.38 (+0.53%).  The price of GOLD is $1,794.30 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $26.19 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,084.20 per troy oz, +0.20 (+0.02%) while the price of COPPER is $4.25 per pound, +0.00 (+0.04%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,777.91 per troy oz, +3.20 (+0.10%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $18,900.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.53%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $608,000.00 per troy oz., +20,500.00 (+3.49%). [xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000029.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.00.     In Tunisian Dinar, one greenback equals 2.78 and in Turkish Lira, a buck equals 8.68 and in Turkmenistan Manat, one dollar equals 3.49 of theirs.[xiv]        
  64. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.305 per gallon, $3.011 in Florida, $4.025 in Hawaii, and $3.805 in Washington state. [xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Texas: $2.803.  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- Ghana: $4.147 per U.S. Gallon. [xvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,491,058,471,082 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 Japan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is communist China with $1,041,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  65. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 105 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 11 since her first and only visit to the quiet sector of El Paso, Texas, where she conducted a photo op.  Next, here are the updated statistics on the illegal alien invaders as presented by One America News: first, (1) Cost this Day of caring for the ILLEGAL ALIENS: $509,132,544.  Incredible.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the flotsam and jetsam of humanity: $204,344,803,328.  Imagine what that money could do for the American people?  Amazing.  Still, it goes to illegal alien criminals.  Next, (3) estimated number of illegals who have entered the United States this year: 2,0994,370.  Finally, (4) estimated number of illegals in the country, a conservative number: 36,094,368.  We believe and said so back in 2009 when the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day tapped out its first keystrokes that back then, there were between 35-50 million river-swimming, border-hopping, visa-overstaying POS in the country whereas now, a true estimate of illegal aliens in the country in our view is between 75-100 million.  Time for Operation Wetback II, time to round them up, pile them aboard derelict freighters, boxcars, buses, 747 Max liners, even into automobiles and send them back to whence the f**k they came.  It is ‘us’ or it’s ‘them.’  There is no middle ground.
  66. 2021 Tuesday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– In other border-related news, a new Democrat bill, perhaps the infrastructure bill or whatever else will provide NO funds for continued building of the southern border wall and will remove funding from Customs and Border Protection which will effectively 86 our border security.   Still, Biden backers are worried over the potential fallout coming from slobbering Joe Biden’s proposed reopening of the borders.  Over what borders?  The southern one is wide open.
  67. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Although the writings on the wall, the Afghan government is calling up hundreds of troops with which to do battle with the Taliban.  Meanwhile, as we predicted a couple of days back, the Chi-Coms are looking to expand their reach into the war-torn, barbaric nation.  We expect the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Iranians may carve out enclaves in which, they can rape the hellhole of whatever resources exist there like, uh, opium, the Chi-Coms can then sell to narcoterrorists and drug-traffickers for export to the U.S.  (Note- we hope the Chi-Coms and Russkies get embroiled in a 40-year-war there).  The Taliban is trying to ‘clean up their image’ as they compete for power in the void left by the U.S. withdrawal.  (Note- no more stoning women, lopping off heads, hands, and other body parts, no more child rape, no more skinning captives alive?  Truly?  We shall see).
  68. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Iran’s ‘Israel Doomsday Clock,’ the countdown to Armageddon and the annihilation of the world’s sole Jewish state went dark when Tehran ran out of power.  What a bunch of losers.  In other foreign/overseas news, Beijing stooges arrest nine pro-democracy Hong Kongese over ‘possible terrorist activities’ meaning they stand for FREEDOM.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Rep. Diana Harshbarger, R-TN 1st CD, says it is imperative that we pull our supply chains home from communist China.  Amen.  In other Chi-Com-related news, New Zealand Chi-Com specialist professor Anne-Marie Brady of the University of Canterbury was booted from Twitter after lampooning Chi-Com Xi Jinping.  Wow.  That’s all that is required to get the boot is to make fun of the communist dingleberry?  Whoa.  (You know, if the Chi-Coms want to drop a couple million on us, we’ll say cordial things about the dictator).
  69. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Israel and South Korea plan to swap 700,000 Chi-Vi vaccines.  Meanwhile, the CDC is appealing “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ lifting of the lockdowns on cruise ships which are already out at sea.  CDC, f**k off.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden is unhappy that his promised rate of vaccinations for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu is way down so he is making proposals such as sending people door to door to remind people to get their shots just as he is seeking to have lab techs on job sites dishing out injections as well as paid days off so people will get their vaccinations.  (Note- no one in my family or any of our employees will be getting a ‘jab,’ not until the vaccines are cleared for GENERAL USE and the manufacturers are stripped of qualified immunity so if- God forbid- someone in our family or on our staff has a problem, we can sue them.  -Chef Bea O’Malley).
  70. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Eric Adams has finally been declared the winner of the contested New York City Democratic Party primary race.  They were trying to steal the election from him so they could bestow it on crazed, cop-hating Maya Wiley.  Congratulations, Mr. Adams.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump calls on swing states to enact REAL ELECTION REFORM.  Every state and territory must do this so we can maintain free elections.  Period.
  71. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden News I– A new poll says that a whopping 57-percent (32-percent of Democrats, 84-percent Republicans) do not believe that slobbering Joe Biden is running the show.  (Note- you can add me to that number and Earl Tiberius, too- we think Xi Jinping is running the show and the enfeebled Joe Biden is dancing to his jig).
  72. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News I– Rep. Jackie “The Jackass” Speier, DS-CA 14th CD, is urging her boss, senile old Joe Biden to respond in a timely manner to the Russian and Chi-Com cyberattacks.  Old Joe acts as though he has no clue as to what century it is in which, the old coot lives.  Speaking of cyberattacks, it would appear that the Russkies have breached the RNC.  Elsewhere, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah Jones has ‘withdrawn’ her quest for tenure at the University of North Carolina (because UNC did not offer it) and instead is going to take her ludicrous 1619 Project to Howard University.
  73. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News II– We learn today that the possible shooter of Ashli Babbitt on January 06, 2021, in the U.S. Capitol is Capitol Hill Police Lt. Michael Byrd.  Attorney Terrell Roberts in a Fox interview last month alluded to the fact that this officer- IF he is the actual killer of Ms. Babbitt- is the same cop who left his loaded firearm in a public restroom on Capitol Hill back in 2019.  Other sources such as Capitol Hill Sergeant at Arms Timothy Blodgett confirmed this in separate testimony as to what happened that day.  Apparently, Lt. Byrd has issues with keeping track of his firearm and now- if he is confirmed to be the shooter- has no trouble with stepping forward and shooting an unarmed woman climbing through a window.  She was given NO warning but was just shot dead.  Many believe that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered that a certain amount of violence had to occur during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION and that Ms. Babbitt- for whatever reason- was the one culled from the herd and shot.  We await confirmation of this terrible tragedy and also wait for the officer to undergo charging.
  74. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Apparently, the White House is holding ‘informal talks’ with non-governmental Republicans (?) to see if he can somehow get his crackpot Green New Deal ‘infrastructure plan’ pushed through to completion.  Still, a ‘bipartisan’ group in the House is backing a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package.  Speaking of this BS package, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell promises a ‘hell of a fight’ over the infrastructure package.
  75. 2021 Tuesday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– This morning, POS attorney Michael Avenatti launched a request for a new trial regarding his conviction in the Nike extortion case the government prosecuted against him with success.  He says that evidence was withheld by federal prosecutors so as to get a conviction.  Unfortunately for Mr. Avenatti, his request was DENIED.   Meanwhile, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer is not expected back anytime soon seeing as how he stands accused of sexual assault.  In other news, reports continue hitting the news cycle showing that Trump supporters being held in the D.C. slammer for their part in the January 06, 2021, FALSE FLAG operation put in motion by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD are being physically assaulted, abused, and mistreated by their jailers.  They are subjected to the kinds of punishments one might find in a Beijing slammer.  This is un-American, criminal, immoral, and flat-out wrong.  Finally, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Bouldin says that anyone concerned about rising crime is…wait for it…a WHITE SUPREMACIST.  Wow.[xviii]
  76. 2021 Tuesday Q: NASA, Space, and UFO News– A new Pew Poll says that 65-percent of Americans believe that aliens exist (and why would they not?  IF anything, bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae, and other parasites exist across the entire Universe which is why diseases like the Black Death, Ebola virus, and HIV-AIDS show up unannounced.
  77. 2021 Tuesday R: Sports News I– ESPN has benched sidelines reporter Rachel Nichols from the NBA Finals beginning tonight because of a tweet that just so happened to pop up from 2020 in which Nichols said the only reason why Maria Taylor was chosen over her to cover last year’s finals was because of her skin color.  Whoa.  Not good.  Anyhow, tonight is Game 1 between the Milwaukee Bucks (46-26) at the Phoenix Suns (51-21).  The Suns take Game 1 by a score of 118 to 105.
  78. 2021 Tuesday S: Observation of the Day– Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend and in Joe Biden’s America, more than 500 people were shot, 233 killed, and 618 wounded.  This is Joe Biden’s America, NOT Donald J. Trump’s America, and it’s not white supremacists killing black folks, it’s black folks murdering black folks, and no one seems to care.  ET and I can pray 24/7/365 and until the morons and halfwits realize that LAW AND ORDER MUST BE MAINTAINED, SUPPORTED, AND CELEBRATED, the carnage is going to continue.  Earl Tiberius and I have our guns, we go to the range, we make our own bullets, we do what we must do to protect our business, our family, and our friends.  Joe Biden- you must leave office NOW.  – Chef Bea O’Malley.
  79. 2021 Tuesday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1674 with an $82 million jackpot up for grabs: 18, 47, 63, 68, 69, and Mega 14.  Out of 50,752 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $27,444.
  80. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill- let’s see what the Chi-Coms are up to today…shall we?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Brian Wilson was a collaborative effort with lyricist and songwriter Van Dyke Parks, a friend and colleague with whom Brian Wilson created some of the greatest Beach Boys material in the late 1960s-early 1970s.  “Orange Crate Art” came out on October 24, 1995, and features tunes- mostly written by Parks- with Brian Wilson contributing the bulk of the vocals.  Other musicians joined in the effort which makes it a glorious endeavor indeed, a meeting of the minds, so to speak.  Back in the day, the other Beach Boys bitched and moaned about the lyrics, believing them to be ‘too out there’ for a group who loved surfing, hotrods, motorbikes, and enjoying the company of hot beach chicks.  We don’t give a flying hoot about the complexity of the lyrics; they were what made the Beach Boys most creative period what it was.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 130

185. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JULY 04, 2022:

Independence Day- Happy Birthday, America!  Long may she survive, let us make it to the end of our long national nightmare on January 20, 2025!

Presidents John Adams—Thomas Jefferson—(and U.S. Secretary of War) James Monroe, and Calvin Coolidge; Vice President Hannibal Hamlin; U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Melville Fuller; U.S. Attorney General Benjamin Franklin Butler; U.S. Secretary of the Interior Walter L. Fisher; U.S. Secretary of State and U.S. Secretary of War William L. Marcy; U.S. Secretary of the Treasury George M. Bibb; the Animals featuring Dave Rowberry, Blondie featuring Nigel Harrison, Canned Heat featuring Alan Wilson, Electric Flag featuring Harvey Brooks, Fleetwood Mac featuring Jeremy Spencer, Foo Fighters featuring William Goldsmith, INXS featuring Kirk Pengilly, and “Give Peace a Chance” by the Plastic Ono Band:

  1. 1415 Tuesday: The reign of the 205th Roman Catholic Pope Gregory XII ends on this date.  He first became the Vicar of Christ on November 30, 1406.  From today until November 11, 1417, no legitimate pope was elected, sort of like how in 2022, the American people are struggling through an illegitimate Biden-Harris regime.
  2. 1453 Monday: At Breslau, Germany, 41 Jewish martyrs are burned at the stake.
  3. 1776 Thursday: The amended Declaration of Independence, prepared by Thomas Jefferson, was approved, and signed by John Hancock, the President of the Continental Congress in America.
  4. 1796 Monday: The first Independence Day celebration takes place in the United States.  The American people were so patriotic, the celebrations intense, unlike the collapsing country of 2022 when entire generations have been indoctrinated to hate their country and to celebrate all things left-wing, perverse, and disgusting.
  5. 1802 Sunday: The United States Military Academy officially opened at West Point, New York.
  6. 1803 Monday: The Louisiana Purchase was announced in newspapers.  The U.S. purchased the property from France for $15 million or 4 cents an acre.  Meanwhile, the “Corps of Discovery,” led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, began the exploration of the territory on May 14, 1804.
  7. 1817 Friday: Construction began on the Erie Canal to connect Lake Erie and the Hudson River.  The middle section of the waterway required three years to complete; the entire canal was finished in 1825.
  8. 1826 Tuesday: The second President of the United States—John Adams—as well as the third President of the United States—Thomas Jefferson[i]—died on this date.  Jefferson died in Charlottesville, Virginia, at age 83 while Adams died in Quincy, Massachusetts at age 90.  Prior to becoming president, he also served the nation as its first official secretary of state, serving under President George Washington from March 22, 1790, to December 31, 1793.
  9. 1831 Monday: The fifth president of the United States—James Monroe—died on this date in New York City, N.Y. at age 73.  He also served the nation as its eighth secretary of war.  He served under President James Madison from September 27, 1814, to March 02, 1815, and then became president.
  10. 1838 Wednesday: The 12th U.S. Attorney General Benjamin Franklin Butler left office on this date.  A Democrat, he served under Presidents Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren from November 15, 1833, until today. 
  11. 1844 Thursday: The 17th U.S. Secretary of the Treasury George M. Bibb assumed office on this date.  A Democrat, he served under Presidents John Tyler and James K. Polk from today until March 07, 1845. 
  12. 1845 Friday: American writer Henry David Thoreau began his two-year experiment in simple living at Walden Pond, near Concord, Massachusetts.

[i] Little would President Thomas Jefferson ever know about 190 some years later, American communists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa and other left-wing, Democrat-funded group would revile this brave founding father and American leader as an EVIL SLAVEOWNER to which we say, “F**K THEM!”  We cannot judge people of the past by those of today.  We must stop the vile communists, well-funded by George Soros, Beijing, and other leftist POS from destroying the nation’s heritage, both good and bad.  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will fight tooth and nail to protect the United States and all its history.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening enjoyment.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iv] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[v] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time we did so- in the earliest days of our second blog- we overlooked all of the individual solo efforts by everyone, ranging from Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Peter Green, Bob Welch, to Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham.  We hope to rectify that fledgling error by doing an updated presentation sometime in the future.  Please stay tuned.

[vi] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of the Beach Boys and the group’s individual members- Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson as well as Alan Jardine, Mike Love, Bruce Johnson, and other members- at some point.  It will be a lengthy presentation rivaling if not surpassing the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Who, and Genesis.

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

[ix] When we do the music of Nirvana, we will be doing the music of Foo Fighters, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Hole, and Smashing Pumpkins.  Stick around as that is going to be gloriously fun.

[x] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.  When we do, we will do our best to include the music of various collaborations and spin-offs from the group, seeing as how every member was extremely talented.

181. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 2022

1941 Monday: During the Nazi drive into the Soviet Union, a pro-Nazi group declares the independence of the Ukraine. As Axis troops entered various towns and cities, they were astounded to see cheering citizens throwing flowers upon them.

  65.  2019 Sunday: On this date, President Donald J. Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un along the DMZ separating the two Koreas from one another.  President Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to walk across the dividing line onto North Korean soil and then the two crossed into South Korea where they held an impromptu meeting for nearly three hours.  Jealous Democrats and fake news promoters called the whole thing a ‘photo op’ when it might truly lead to peace and destroy Democratic Party 2020 hopes.   Meanwhile, in Khartoum, the capital of the Sudan, protests against continued military rule leads to violence what with seven killed and 181 injured.

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.
