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. They were finally free from the hell imposed on them by Soviet thug Josef Stalin. Had the Germans played this differently, the world might be a completely different place.

  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.

[xii]

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.

  60. 2020 Saturday B: The Chinese Virus continues flowing around the world but with the protests raging in the streets of America, no one seems much concerned.  Many aren’t wearing masks.  Here are the global stats for today: 6,054,187 confirmed cases, 368,711 confirmed deaths, but 2,562,191 confirmed recoveries which far outpaces the number of deaths.  Excellent.  Here are the stats for the United States: 1,805,745 confirmed cases, 105,159 confirmed deaths, but 390,404 confirmed recoveries which would be much higher if Blue State governors were honest and would share those numbers.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 108,878 confirmed cases, 4,060 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION yet again of confirmed recoveries.  Governor Gavin Newsom, get with it and share those numbers, you worthless POS.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 604 confirmed recoveries which is extremely good.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 21,288 confirmed cases, 1,118 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Gov. Jay Inslee plays the same brand of deceptive liberal politics and won’t share honest statistics.  Shame on him!  Shame on Gov. Newsom!  Recall BOTH of them.

Currently, Joe is shy 168,011 deaths  
  63. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,789,318 confirmed cases, 63,245 confirmed deaths, and 2,054,021 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,320,818 confirmed cases, 36,774 confirmed deaths, and 1,943,113 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,246 confirmed cases, 500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 437,952 confirmed cases, 5,829 confirmed deaths, and 212,777 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Indiana: they have 743,696 confirmed cases, 13,620 confirmed deaths, and 710,986 confirmed recoveries.[viii]

  66. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.197 per gallon, $2.866 in Florida, $3.926 in Hawaii, and $3.576 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Arizona: $3.126.  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- Sierra Leone: $3.142 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,348,229,478,276 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, this is Day #69 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the “Laughing Hyena,” to be in charge of the southern border and not to have visited it.  Her ‘vice presidential’ salary is being well-spent as you can see.
  68. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– It looks like the Israelis are going to do to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu what the British people did to Prime Minister Winston Churchill at the end of World War II after he saved the UK like Netanyahu has Israel- countless time- vote him out and move on.  Netanyahu has saved Israel countless times and now that he has and the Palestinians have lit them up with more than 4,000 rockets, it appears the liberals in Israel are going to boot him and suck up to Gaza Strip and to Iran in a roundabout way,  Wow. At least Bill Maher is defending Israel unlike the rest of American liberals.  In other foreign and overseas news, news reports say that Mexican drug cartels are hunting Mexican law enforcement officers in their homes.  It sounds like Mexico- if it wants to remain a sovereign nation instead of an Afghanistan-like s**thole, they had better mobilize their military and start cleaning out this nest of vipers.
  69. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit continues even without the help of Democrats within the state who seem to be intent at keeping it under wraps rather than jumping in with both feet to demonstrate there was NO funny business.  The auditors are hand-counting 1 million ballots.  God bless them for doing what is RIGHT.  
  70. 2021 Sunday I: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In the era of ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden, last night/early this morning in Miami-Dade County in Florida, a gunman assaulted a concert, shot two dead, and wounded another 20.  In this era of gun control, amazing at how many folks are getting shot.   Meanwhile, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS, is bragging about how well gun control in the Golden State is doing a few days after the VTA train yard massacre in San Jose, California.   In another incident last night in Pittsburgh, a thug opens fire at a shopping mall but killed no one- two perps are in custody.
  71. 2021 Sunday J: Political News I– The Wisconsin state Assembly has ordered an investigation into Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life.  About time this little POS began to get his.  Next, a Michigan court rules that six recall petitions against Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer and one against Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist can move ahead.  Good.  Remove both of them from office.  Still, their supporters say they will fight the recall efforts in the courts.  Time to cut bait and go.  Moving on, as the Texas elections security bill moves forward, mumbling, stumbling old senile Joe Biden blasts the Lone Star State.  What a loser. Elsewhere, Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, says that ‘masks are no longer required in all government buildings.’
  72. 2021 Sunday K: Political News II– One America News reports a major poll regarding HOW the American people- in this case, New Yorkers- feel about the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Nearly 100-percent of the respondents believe the Chi-Vi came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology nor did they believe it a naturally-occurring virus but a lab-engineered one cooked up by the Chi-Coms.  Some even believed it was retaliation for President Donald J. Trump putting an ass-whooping on them over trade.  (Note- we have said that the virus was ‘too convenient’ as for the Chi-Coms, it allowed them to clamp down on Hong Kong as well as to put their stooge Joe Biden into the White House.  They are going to pay for this BIG TIME.  Retribution is coming).   
  73. 2021 Sunday L: Political News III– Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says the ONLY one responsible for rising inflation is Joe Biden and no one else.  In other political news, Democrats are pushing ahead with H.R. 127- the Firearm Licensing and Registration Act- which requires even more background checks, 24 hours of training paid for by the gun buyer, as well as clearance by a psychiatrist who will interview NOT only the buyer but every member of the immediate family meaning any and all relatives they can reel in with their dragnet.  Even more problematic is that all this information would become PUBLIC meaning everyone would know the guns one has as well as all the background information.  (Note- good thing we all have our firearms and will only buy them out of the backs of car trunks should this crap law ever become law of the land).
  74. 2021 Sunday M: Miscellaneous News I– the United Nations has released a report stating the danger of KILLER autonomous drones flying all over the damned place.  How soon before targeted assassinations are occurring in the skies above every nation?  If the tech companies can kill people with impunity in the Third World, soon, the thugs in the Third  will be repaying the favor.   Elsewhere, former General David Petraeus says the government has a responsibility to care for U.S. service personnel sickened by the notorious burn pits.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast Guard calls off a search for 10 missing Cuban refugees who went into the water off the Florida Keys.  Two bodies were recovered while several others were rescued.  The Coast Guard searched 800,000 square miles of ocean.        
  75. 2022 Monday:  It’s a holiday weekend, hopefully it will be a slow news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album remains one of our favorites; in fact, it is the first of several that we hold especially dear.  Today’s album, “Sunflower,” came out on August 31, 1970, and although critics once again were extremely unkind and sales were crappy, it is an extraordinary album from start to finish.  The lineup on “Sunflower” features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Beginning with “Slip on Through,” sung by Dennis, the absolutely beautiful, “This Whole World” sung by Carl followed by “Add Some Music to Your Day” sung by all the band members to “Got to Know the Woman” (another Dennis rocker) to “Deidre” by Bruce Johnston to “It’s About Time,” a rocker sung by Carl and Mike.  Side two starts off with another Bruce Johnston classic, “Tears in the Morning” followed by the hauntingly beautiful, “All I Wanna Do” (Mike Love).  Next, “Forever,” a lovely Dennis love song followed by “Our Sweet Love,” a heart-warming Carl Wilson love song to “At My Window” (Bruce and Brian) to the closer, “Cool, Cool Water” sung by Brian and Mike.  Folks, this is one of the best albums by the Beach Boys and the first of several that are absolutely stunning.  We hope you seek it out and make it part of your nonstop growing collection.  Enjoy.

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

[ii] 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.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

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

101. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 11, 2022

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

  56. 2004 Sunday: It’s Easter Sunday and President George W. Bush is visiting U.S. troops at a base in Iraq, one that’s been hit hard by fighting and attacks.  The president acknowledges it’s been a harrowing week and professes NO idea as to when things might improve.  We probably should not have invaded the country, President Bush, it was a BIG FLIPPING mistake.  Still, we broke it, it’s ours.
  57. 2005 Monday: Hezbollah sends several drones into Israeli airspace, claiming to be conducting reconnaissance over the world’s only Jewish state in response to some border problems between Lebanon and Israel.  The Israeli Air Force takes to the skies and conducts numerous low-level air penetrations all across southern Lebanon.  The Hezbollah rats scurry back into their sewers.
  58. 2006 Tuesday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announces that Iran has successfully enriched uranium.  Elsewhere, terror befalls tens of thousands of revelers celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad as a suicide bomber sets off a device that blows 47 to meet the Prophet sooner than they planned and injures another 85-90 people.  What the hell is wrong with these people? 
  59. 2007 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate is considering a bill with which to allow more scientific research on stem cells.  However, President George W. Bush threatens a veto as he should.  Meanwhile, the chair of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee (and presidential candidate) Joseph R. Biden says he backs the idea of using force in Darfur.  What is it about these Deep Staters who want to involve the United States in wars across the planet?  Enough is enough.  We are tied down in Iraq and Afghanistan.
  60. 2008 Friday: Somali pirates operating in the Gulf of Aden (goes on year after year) release 30 hostages captured aboard a French luxury yacht plying the area.  Folks, who the f**k wants to take a scenic trip through ‘pirate alley?’ (We heard once that the Saudis were considering filling a yacht with people who wanted to light the pirates up just for sport.  Now that is a boat upon which, we would love to sail!).
  61. 2009 Saturday: In the Gulf of Aden, the French navy does battle with Somali pirates who captured a yacht.  The sailors kill several of the thugs, rout the rest, and recover at least four hostages.  We believe it’s time for world powers to join forces and wipe out this scourge of scumbags.  This is the 21st century, folks.
  62. 2010 Sunday: Tehran announces that the Iranians will participate in the upcoming Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty talks in New York.  Of course, they are going to say and do anything necessary for them to continue keeping their nuclear weapons program a clandestine one.  Elsewhere, Poles around the world are commencing a week of mourning their leader, President Lech Kaczynski, who died along with several others in a mysterious plane crash outside Smolensk, Russia.
  63. 2011 Monday: In France, a law banning the wearing of the burqa and the hijab goes into effect on this day—screw the Muslims!  In Egypt in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, protesters demanding ousted President Hosni Mubarak face charges for all kinds of crimes and who were lit up the day before are back demanding all sorts of reforms be instituted to make the country more ‘Islamic.’
  64. 2012 Wednesday:  The North Korean Workers Party names Kin Jong Un First Secretary, with his father, Kim Jong IL as the party’s “eternal” General Secretary.  Elsewhere, rescuers reach nine trapped miners in a collapses copper mine in the southern part of Peru.
  65. 2013 Thursday: Malawi President Joyce Banda accuses singer Madonna of ‘bullying state officials’ after exaggerating the contributions of her charity and complaining about her treatment during a recent visit to the country.  Elsewhere, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan’s offer of amnesty for Boko Haram thugs- if they’d straighten up and stop murdering and abducting people- is rejected by the terrorist group.
  66. 2014 Friday: Budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell is nominated to replace Kathleen Sibelius as U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.  Meanwhile, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducts Cat Stevens[iii], Nirvana[iv], KISS[v], Hall & Oates[vi], Linda Ronstadt[vii], and Peter Gabriel[viii] on this date.  Meanwhile, as Muslims and Christians kill one another in the Central African Republic, the United Nations agrees to send 12,000 blue helmets to keep the two groups from continuing the bloodshed.
  67. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro meet at the Summit of the Americas in Panama for talks aimed at thawing relations; the historic meeting marks the first interaction in decades between top leaders of the two nations.  President Obama loves communists, and he loves jihadists, especially Shiite ones.
  68. 2016 Monday: In war-torn Yemen, a U.N.-backed ceasefire goes into effect between Saudi Arabia and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.  Elsewhere, Goldman Sachs, seen as one of the big causes of the 2008 fiscal crisis that conveniently helped Barack Hussein Obama win the White House reached a settlement with the federal government for having sold ‘derivatives,’ packages of mortgages that contained numerous dogs which when everything went to hell took the entire economy down with it.  Anyhow, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $5.06 billion to settle all claims.
  69. 2017 Tuesday: Famed rock-and-roll guitarist and co-leader of the J. Geils’ Band[ix], John J. Geils, died from natural causes on this date in Groton, Massachusetts, at age 71.  Elsewhere, as U.S. Navy assets approach the two Koreas, Kim Jong Un goes to the microphone banks to address his people (as well as the world) and threatens WAR with the United States if they don’t pull their forces back.  Elsewhere, a U.S. airstrike goes awry in Syria as American jets seeking to light up a bunch of ISIS scumbags instead kills 18 allied Syrian Democratic Forces troops.
  70. 2018 Wednesday: The Palestinians are upset that Israeli troops and a sniper who took out a Hamas thug got off without being in trouble.  Thus, they set off a bomb near some Israeli construction equipment which then leads the Israeli Defense Forces to light up some Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, other trouble-makers in the region- the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels- launch some rockets into Saudi Arabia one of which shows up in the skies over Riyadh but is taken down by Saudi air force jets.
  71. 2019 Thursday: Today, things ended for Julian Assange as British police forcibly removed him from the Ecuadoran embassy in London.   The United States wants him extradited so he can stand charges for his role in Wikileaks releasing loads of secret Iraq war documents.  Elsewhere, the son of a local sheriff in the great state of Louisiana undergoes arrest for having committed several acts of arson against historically black churches in the state.  Holden Matthews would eventually receive a sentence of 25 years in a federal prison with hate crimes attached.  POS.
  72. 2019 Thursday A: The 6.1st Acting U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan assumed office on this date.  He would serve under President Donald J. Trump from today until November 13, 2019.
  73. 2020 Saturday: The day before Easter Sunday, Christian churches around the United States are under statewide and local orders NOT to perform services thanks to the despicable virus engineered in communist China and dispatched around the world.  Around the world, there are 1,684,833 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with 102,136 confirmed deaths and 375,499 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, Americans continue suffering thanks to our ‘friends’ in the People’s Republic of China what with 530,463 confirmed cases, 20,499 confirmed deaths, and 31,340 confirmed recoveries.  In order to fight this malignant plague, the Democratic Party wants to coopt the nation’s election systems and have everyone vote by mail.  What?
  74. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 135,869,704 confirmed cases, +839,540, 2,935,271  confirmed deaths, +14,734, and 77,284,566 confirmed recoveries, +508,538.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,397,113 confirmed cases, UP 48,882 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,591 confirmed deaths, UP 449, and 119,003,025 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[x] 
  75. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 239,048 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  76. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,696,791 confirmed cases, 60,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,124,233 confirmed cases, 34,021 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 30,956 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 377,979 confirmed cases, 5,373 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Oklahoma, home of the late great Bass Reeves, the true Lone Ranger: they have 442,805 confirmed cases, 6,691 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[xi] 
  77. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 835,933 confirmed cases, 6,296 confirmed deaths, and 825,579 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Kazakhstan, yet another loyal client state of Russia: 320,881 cases of the virus, 3,267 confirmed deaths and 284,034 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  79. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.932 per gallon, $2.839 in Florida, $3.725 in Hawaii, and $3.336 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.708.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,160,214,670,182 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  80. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 499,644,267 confirmed cases, +458,572, 6,205,518 confirmed deaths, +2,146 and 449,418,898 confirmed recoveries, +703,516.

  81. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 563,134 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 198,469 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 446 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  82. 2022 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,133,348 confirmed cases, 89,498 confirmed deaths, and 8,881,898 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,911,882 confirmed cases, 73,583 confirmed deaths, and 5,796,163 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 241,972 confirmed cases, 1,382 confirmed deaths, and 236,602 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,467,059 confirmed cases, 12,566 confirmed deaths, and 1,429,877 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Montana: they have 272,919 confirmed cases, 3,255 confirmed deaths, and 269,320 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]   
  83. 2022 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,006,177 confirmed cases, 10,591 confirmed deaths, and 3,941,841 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Barth, 209th place on the list: 4,313 cases of the virus, 6 confirmed death and 4,307 confirmed recoveries.[xix]                         
  84. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,308.08, DOWN 413.04 points (-1.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,411.96 DOWN 299.04 points (-2.18%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,412.53, DOWN 75.75 points (-1.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $95.10 per barrel, +0.81 (+0.86%).  The price of GOLD is $1,956.10 per troy oz., +7.90 (+0.41%) while the price of SILVER is $25.23 per troy ounce, +0.24 (+0.97%).  The price of PLATINUM is $981.20 per troy oz, +3.40 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $4.63 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[xx]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,448.73 per troy oz., +16.56 (+0.68%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,900.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.53%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,180,000.00 per CNY/T, -30,000.00 (-2.48%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,229.00 per USD/T, -145.50 (-4.31%). The price of ZINC is $4,320.00 per USD/T., +65.50 (+1.54%).   The price of COCOA is $2,616.00 per USD/T, -4.00 (-0.15%).  The price of COFFEE is $236.60 per USD/T, +4.95 (+2.14%).  The price of LUMBER is $886.30 USD 1,000 board feet -63.60 (-6.70%).[xxi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 19.92, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 81.00 of theirs.    In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,458.50 and in Jamaican Dollar, a buck equals 153.87 and in Japanese Yen, one dollar equals 125.42 of theirs.[xxii]       
  85. 2022 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.763 per gallon, $4.072 in Florida, $5.228 in Hawaii, and $4.680 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: District of Columbia- $4.237.  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 13th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Egypt: $1.971 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,378,296,809,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  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 Thailand the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany.  This nation holds $75,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  86. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian troops operating in Ukraine have been nominated for ‘Darwin Awards’ over the idiots removing ‘radioactive souvenirs’ from the Chernobyl power plant in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, Ukrainian military authorities are alleging the Russians have used drones with which to disperse chemical weapons in the beleaguered port city of Mariupol.  Civilian and military authorities are awaiting independent confirmation that the Russians did indeed use chemical weapons.  Speaking of such barbarism, a Chechen leader says that Russian President Vladimir Putin should indeed use tactical nuclear weapons to subdue the Ukrainians.  Still, Moscow claims they have eradicated all of Ukraine’s S-300 missile systems.
  87. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says ‘Russia will not suspend its military operations in Ukraine even as ‘peace talks’ between the two countries are underway.   Meanwhile, although the Russians claim otherwise, the mayor of Mariupol says that at least 10,000 civilians have died during the siege and that when the siege is lifted, the true numbers of dead civilians could double that.  How is it the United Nations is not raising troops from member countries and forcing Russia to stop its malevolent actions in a peaceful country?
  88. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris- California’s shame- has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster for the past 374 days and worse, she has not shown up to do more than a couple hours’ worth of work in 288 days.  What has the country done to deserve a vice president such as her?  Okay, we do our best to continue computing the true costs of illegal immigration on America, the same way that One America News did prior to Direct TV removing them from their list of channels.  Perhaps because we continue promoting the honest-to-God numbers to the best of our abilities, perhaps this is why we find ourselves under assault from some of the biggest search engines.  It is what it is.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders since January 01, 2022, is $642,844,149.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since the undynamic duo took their oaths with which they swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution is $42,388,919,892.  The number of illegals we estimate to have crossed the border since January 20, 2021, is 1,026,488.  Fourth and final, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 45,401,750.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is the prime reason our country is in a state of economic malaise (not to mention liberal policies).[xxvi] (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  89. 2022 Monday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $53.97 (2) AstraZeneca: $70.63 (3) Novavax: $57.54 (4) Merck & Company: $86.63 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.88  (6) BioNTech: $170.55 (7) Moderna: $160.00.
  90. 2022 Monday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $102.12 (2) Boeing: $175.04 (3) General Dynamics: $243.55 (4) Lockheed Martin: $464.30 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $462.14.
  91. 2022 Monday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.53 (2) DuPont: $68.48 (3) 3M: $150.12 (4) Honeywell: $189.27  (5) Teijen: $1,312.00.
  92. 2022 Monday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $23.55 (2) Beyond Meat: $43.96  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $67.86.
  93. 2022 Monday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $154.33 (2) Lowe’s: $204.75 (3) Home Depot: $306.89 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $584.67 (5) Amazon: $3,022.44.
  94. 2022 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The White House is preparing for ‘extraordinarily-elevated CPI numbers,’ numbers that are sure to lead massive losses in House and Senate seats in November.  Next, the administration nominates a new commander to lead NATO forward.  Meanwhile, even as COVID-19 numbers continue tanking, the Biden administration is seeking a resumption of forcing EVERY federal worker or contractor to undergo forced vaccination with one of the COVID-19 vaccines.
  95. 2022 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– Although President Joe Biden is going to continue forcing all federal workers to undergo vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccines- and although Dr. Anthony Fauci continues saying the American people are going to have to learn to live with this foul disease, the Pentagon is moving onto the next pandemic, whatever it might be.
  96. 2022 Monday P: Political News I– Law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania arrested an elderly man who was sticking “I DID THAT” stickers onto gasoline pumps.  The stickers featured President Joseph R. Biden pointing to the exorbitant cost of the gas pumped.  Other hilarious stickers featured the nation’s vice president, quoted as saying, “I HELPED.”  While we recognize gas station owners must peel the stickers off- sometimes with difficulty- one cannot sidestep the fact that energy costs are sky high, and that the Biden-Harris administration bears COMPLETE responsibility and not Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.
  97. 2022 Monday Q: Political News II– Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson blasted the White House and its stance on gender affirming/gender reassignment surgeries.  Of course, the White House is a big proponent of life-altering gender surgeries which seems rather devilish to many.  Next, famed economist Peter Navarro says that a ‘perfect storm’ of stagflation is heading our way.   In other news, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush says, ‘it’s right for Governor Greg Abbott to send illegal aliens- what the left euphemistically labels as ‘undocumented migrants- to Washington, D.C., and to other ‘sanctuary locales.’  Finally, in other news Democrat locales would be wise to emulate, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill this morning with which to bolster fatherhood programs across the Sunshine State.
  98. 2022 Monday R: Political News III– Stacey Abrams-backed election law in the Peach State is going to trial.   Meanwhile, in Iowa, a hubbub continues following last night’s ruling by a judge in the state that won’t permit Senator Chuck Grassley’s struggling Democratic challenger- Abby Finkenauer to appear on the state’s Democratic Party primary ballot.  To qualify for the primary ballot, a candidate must have 100 signatures- or more- each from 19 counties to make the grade.  Although the Finkenauer campaign submitted more than 3,500 signatures, she did not get the necessary number to face off against Senator Grassley.  C’ est la vie.  Of the signatures, questions swirled around three of them from two counties.  Go figure.  Stop registering illegal aliens.
  99. 2022 Monday S: Political News IV– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says the White House is being mum on its plans with which to shove portions of the Build Back Better plan through to fruition.  We can only speculate what other evil crap the administration is attempting to insert into this doomed-to-fail bill.  Election Day is fast approaching and contrary to what many progressives are trumpeting, not every Democrat wants to lose his or her seat supporting this crumbling ‘signature package.’
  100. 2022 Monday T: Second Amendment News– The National Rifle Association has slammed President Joseph R. Biden’s new executive orders on the evil ‘ghost guns.’  Since before the founding of the country, Americans have made their own firearms and ammunition and even though President Biden believes he has a winner with this issue, Americans will continue making their own guns and crafting their own ammunition.  It is what free people in a free country do.  We are not communist China yet nor if older Americans continue defending freedom from the new generation of indoctrinated losers, we will continue doing this until the day we die.
  101. 2022 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #974 with a jackpot of $85 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 24, 31, 34, and Power 04.  Out of 62,911 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $33,732.

Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin hold their final talks in the positions they now hold.   Elsewhere, Hillary Clinton’s main adviser Mark Penn steps down from her campaign as news of his lobbying activities on behalf of foreign nations continues to hit the fan.  Man, that’s the Clintons, no big deal, nothing to see here, everyone move on…
  56. 2009 Monday: Somali pirates take to the high seas and have a field day today as they capture five ships, one owned by the Brits, another by the Yemenis, another owned by Germany, still another flagged by Taiwan, and a final one owned by France.  People, we need to eradicate these scumbags, crucify them along the shores of their rat-s**t country.  Elsewhere, Afghanistan’s government is pondering a new law regarding spousal rights and this law permits spousal rape.  It won’t be the wives raping the gents, that’s for sure…
  57. 2010 Tuesday: Relations between the Palestinians and the Israelis continue to deteriorate as fighting occurs along their borders.  Meanwhile, in Baghdad, suicide bombers carry out EIGHT separate attacks, blowing 35 people sky-high and injuring another 145-150 people.  Allah Akbar!  Kill these murderous scumbags.

  67. 2020 Monday: The ‘gift from communist China that keeps on giving,’ the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the coronavirus continues sweeping the globe causing illness and death- and economic stagnation, if not complete shutdown- wherever it shows up.  Currently, there are 1,347,803 confirmed cases with confirmed recoveries (good news, right?) at 277,402.  Confirmed global deaths sit at 74,807.  In the United States, there are 368,196 confirmed cases what with 10,986 confirmed deaths.  It is difficult to discover what the confirmed recoveries are, but they have to far outrank the deaths, yet the number is hard to uncover which is why the editors at the blog suspect it has something to do with POLITICS.  President Trump, we must reopen the economy because we believe the Wuhan Virus came out of biowarfare laboratories in China with the express purpose of causing economic catastrophe in the United States and other parts of the Free World.
  68. 2021 Tuesday: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– today is Day 12 of “Kooky Kamala” Harris being in charge of the southern border and NO one has seen or heard from the laughing hyena.  Next, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the administration may resume construction on the southern border wall, not because the administration wants to do it but because of pending lawsuits facing the administration for having put the kibosh on wall construction that was already funded.  Talk about ‘shovel-ready jobs.’  It might be nice if the wall was back online because we have reports of two FBI-sought terrorist suspects crossing the southern border.  From where did they come you ask?  From flipping Yemen. (White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘terrorists crossing the border is very unusual.’  What is wrong with this ditz?  Kayleigh McEnany, we miss you!)
  69. 2021 Tuesday A: WOKEISM / WOKE/ WOKE WOOSIES NEWS– Governor Brian Kemp, R-GA, blasted the WOKIES out there by saying that ‘WOKE activists do not care about the truth.’  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that the ‘private sector must stop acting like a WOKE parallel government.’  Elsewhere, it’s official, Major-League Baseball is moving the 2021 All-Star Game to Denver, Colorado, where voting laws are stricter than those in Georgia and where the population is predominantly white rather than black in the Peach State.[ix]  That’s stupidity for you.  As we said, NONE of us will be watching or attending MLB games again as long as Commissioner Rob Manfred remains in charge.  F**k him!  Finally, the L.A. Stage Alliance quits after misidentifying an Asian nominee.  Man, are there NO room for mistakes?
  70. 2021 Tuesday B: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The French government is going to give Air France-KLM a $4.7 billion bailout.  Next, North Korea announces that it will skip the Tokyo Summer Olympics due to COVID-19 concerns.  However, there is some scuttlebutt out there that says the two Koreas want to put in a bid to hold the 2032 Summer Olympics in their two countries.  Elsewhere, even though Iran continues to spit in the faces of the Biden administration, the U.S. State Department will continue trying to hold indirect talks with Tehran in Vienna, seeking a way by which, the United States can return to the deeply flawed Iran Nuclear Deal, aka the JCPOA.  Iran continues demanding a lifting of ALL sanctions and reparations for the harm caused them by the EVIL United States.  We say, “NUKE THEM!” 
  71. 2021 Tuesday C: NATIONAL NEWS– Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has issued a state of emergency declaration over out-of-control wildfires afflicting his state.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration is preparing to present recent changes to Title IX rules regarding sexual assaults on college campuses.  We suspect it will return to what it was when Joe Biden was vice president under President Barack Hussein Obama.  Men are f**ked no matter what.  Moving on, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says that the U.S. will provide Bat Flu vaccines to foreign nations and will expect NO favors in return.   Next, Bruce Jenner says that he might seek the governor’s gig in California if the recall becomes reality.  His alter-ego Caitlyn Jenner says he/she will run as a Republican.  Elsewhere, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, D-NY, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, says he has plans to build a monument dedicated to essential workers.  What a guy.
  72. 2021 Tuesday D: CRIME AND JUSTICE NEWS– the two bitches who murdered Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar in Washington, D.C., reportedly are taking a plea deal that will release them from custody when they reach 21 years of age as well as put them in some sort of group home environment and not into a juvenile facility.  No justice for Mr. Anwar.  Meanwhile, in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, Day 7 sees some shocking revelations where it appears that Officer Chauvin’s knee was on the shoulder blade of George Floyd and not on his neck.  Members of the Minneapolis Police Department say that Officer Chauvin did not act as he was trained to act so we shall see what we shall see.  However, a recent Rasmussen polls shows that less than a majority believes Officer Chauvin’s actions led to the loss of George Floyd’s life.  Unfortunately, some WOKE Black Lives Matter skank says that ‘IF the jury acquits, Minneapolis is going to burn, baby, burn,’ as Stokely Carmichael used to say back in the earliest days of the Black Panther movement.   Finally, a U.S. Navy corpsman shot two people near Fort Detrick, Maryland, and once he had, he fled to the base where he was shot and killed.[x]   The two vics are in critical condition.
  73. 2021 Tuesday E: COVID-19 NEWS I– New Zealand and Australia are opening quarantine-free travel between their two nations.  Next, we learn that approximately 200 people who received Chi-Vi vaccines have now tested positive for the vile disease, one Joe Biden has signed an executive order requiring ALL federal employees NOT to call it ‘the China virus or the Wuhan virus.’  Uh, okay, Joe, okay.  Something else the Biden administration is pushing- COVID-19 passports- Donald Trump Jr. denounces this police state-style measure as the ‘greatest affront on the liberties and freedoms of Americans.’[xi]  Amen.   Speaking of COVID-19 passports, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has put forth a bill: the “We Will Not Comply Act,” a bill that will prevent anyone in the U.S. demanding any citizen to show proof of immunization.  You know, if we required this for HIV-AIDS, the Democrats would launch a jihad.   In other vaccine news (and this is both troubling and curious), AstraZeneca is seeking a new partner to manufacture its vaccines for the Chi-Vi, you know, the old ‘VID, after discovering that its current partner- Emergent- seems to be having problems with cross-contamination.  Yet another flipping reason to wait a year or so before getting inoculated. 
  74. 2021 Tuesday F: COVID-19 NEWS II– A new Gallup Poll says that fear of the China Virus is at an all-time low even as globalists try to drive fear into us once again by swearing to Marx that numbers are on the rise.  Meanwhile, another report suggests that the Biden administration (meaning Barack Hussein Obama) is moving vaccine availability ahead to April 19.  In order to drive the fear of God into the hearts of the American people, they are now telling us that a double mutant variant from India has now been discovered in California– oi vie!   In other Chi-Vi-related news, small landlords are struggling with the Centers for Disease Control, aka the CDC, mandate on NO evictions while the coronavirus from communist China is running amok.[xii]   Meanwhile, a recent report suggests that the grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology was NOT reviewed by National Institute of Health, the NIH.
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Congressman Alcee Hastings, D-FL 20th congressional district has died at age 84, having fought a losing battle with pancreatic cancer, a dire scourge.  Rest well, sir, rest well.  Next, the Portland, Oregon, police department has told city leaders that ‘they’re quitting.’  Meanwhile, Congressman Matt Gaetz, D-FL 1st congressional district, continues to stand strong under the barrage his Democrat enemies are launching at him.  This is another FALSE FLAG OPERATION designed to remove a powerful Republican from his post, yet House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi won’t remove the so-called ‘farter-in-chief,’ Congressman Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, who is a proven liability for the U.S. government in that the Chi-Com Ministry of State Security- the MSS- via him having an ongoing sexual relationship with an intelligence agent, Christine Fang-Fang.   Next, a U.S. Navy official says there are NO indications that the ‘mysterious drones’ are visitors from elsewhere.  Finally, Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, vetoes a ban on sexual reassignment treatments and surgeries, saying ‘it’s government overreach’ and that ‘families, patients, and doctors should be the ones making the decisions as to what’s best for the individual.’
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC NEWS– We learn today that the global shortage (caused by communist China yet again) of semiconductor chips could damage auto manufacturing far longer than anticipated.  Look, none of us who write for the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day wants NEW cars with all the unnecessary electronics and computerized systems.  No, give us gas-guzzling vehicles with less technology and we’re good.   Elsewhere, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that the ‘slowness of the vaccine rollout is a threat to the U.S. Economy.  Meanwhile, the Morning Consult Poll says that 26-percent of Americans will seek new jobs following the end of the Chi-Com pandemic.

[iii] We hope to begin promoting the music of the Allman Brothers Band and their spin-off projects sometime within the next eight years.  We hope you will be here when we do because they are a band worthy of investigation by the readership- you will be glad you did.

[iv] When we promote the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will also promote the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned.

[v] ABBA?  We have no clue but when we do so will you.

[ix] President Donald J. Trump says the American people should boycott ALL corporations and sports leagues boycotting Georgia over its improved election laws.

[xi] Just today, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, signed an executive order banning any attempt of creating Chi-Vi vaccine passports in the Lone Star State.  God bless you, Governor!

[xii] Since when did the CDC become the go-to source for who can and who cannot be evicted?  How did they achieve this power?  It’s unprecedented and it’s crazy and for small landlords who invested in real estate to fund their retirements, this kind of crap is devastating.

  65. 2016 Friday: Adherents of the so-called “religion of peace: Islam,” in this case, ISIS, carry out a suicide bombing at a football match at Iskandariya, Iraq, kills 32 people and wounds scores more.   However, things don’t go well for the ISIS B-team in Nigeria, Boko Haram.  Nigerian troops carry out a rescue and clearing operation in the troubled northeastern part of their country and in so doing, kill at least 22 jihadists, capture numerous others, and rescue 800 hostages.  Good for you guys!
  66. 2017 Saturday: Following Israeli airstrikes on Hezbollah targets inside Syria, Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad does some chest-thumping today by threatening to make ‘his war’ a wider war with Israel and declares that he might begin firing some SCUD missiles at his Jewish foes.  Of course, the Israelis are not impressed about any threats emanating from Damascus and they let Assad and his generals know that if you fire ANYTHING at any of our cities or assets, we are going to clean your clocks.  Spoiler alert- the POS Syrian dictator doesn’t.
  67. 2018 Sunday: After things not going well between President Donald J. Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the latter boards his armored train and heads to Beijing so he can powwow with Chinese dictator Xi Jinping.  Meanwhile, in the Siberian city of Kemerovo, a fire breaks out at a shopping mall that claims the lives of at least 64 and injures numerous others.  Elsewhere, famed blues-psychedelic-rock vocalist Mike Harrison of the British band, Spooky Tooth[vii], died in his hometown of Carlisle, Cumberland, England at age 72 on this date.
  68. 2019 Monday: Following the first rocket launch from the Gaza Strip since 2014 aimed at Tel Aviv, the Israelis launch airstrikes into the Palestinian-controlled S-hole area.  Meanwhile, in the so-called ‘Socialist paradise of Venezuela,’ ongoing power shortages cause workers and students to remain at home  And Sen. Bernie Sanders and AOC in the United States want the U.S. to become more like Venezuela and Cuba.  No flipping way, Jose!
  69. 2020 Wednesday: COVID-19 statistics continue rising (although Communist China claims they are going DOWN in their neck of the global woods) what with 470,973 confirmed cases worldwide with 21,276 deaths.  Meanwhile, the United States acknowledges 68,572 cases and 1,031 deaths as of this publishing time.  Meanwhile, Democrats continue trying to stuff all sorts of Marxist craziness into the Coronavirus Relief Bill President Trump wants sent to his desk for his signature ASAP.
  70. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN’S FIRST PRESS CONFERENCE IN 65 DAYS- An extremely fatigued, slow-moving, mumbling, stumbling Joe Biden gave his first official press conference today.  He began mumbling through his pre-rehearsed lines, clearing his throat, looking furtively around the room, and spewing whatever the voice in his earpiece told him to spew.  This was extremely embarrassing for the American people and in the eyes of the world, deeply humiliating.  It is clear that Joe Biden is NOT his own man but a marionette on a string being danced about by someone else.   Within 3 minutes starting at 10:29 A.M. PDT he moved to questions by 10:32 with Zeke from the Associated Press getting the first shot.  Joe said, “I was elected to solve problems,” said Joe.   Regarding the border, Joe Biden says, “Nothing has changed, it happens every year, hundreds of thousands of illegals come here every year.”  He says it’s ‘NOT because he’s a good guy but it’s because this is the safest time not to die in the desert coming here.’  Wow, Joe.  Joe then blamed President Donald J. Trump for ‘dismantling the system, defunding HHS, limiting the number of beds available, and doing all sorts of other evil things that poor old Joe is now having to rebuild.’  (Note- Joe, just build the wall and f**king deport them all!).  Joe lied by saying he is sending back ‘thousands, tens of thousands of people who are over age 18 and single as well as vast majorities of families.’  He said that ‘they are not crossing our border.’   (Joe went about 62 minutes and answered questions from approximately 13-14 reporters.  Congrats, Joe, you didn’t topple over, and blood did not start flowing out of your eyes, ears, and nostrils).[viii] 
  71. 2021 Thursday A: LOGAN ACT VIOLATIONS- Information is beginning to arise showing that former U.S. Secretary of State (and current climate change czar) John F. Kerry committed numerous Logan Act violations by conducting shadow diplomacy behind the Trump administration’s back with all manner of noxious toadstools such as Iran, the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Venezuelans, and every other crap-hole country in the world.  Mr. Kerry should be doing time in Ft. Leavenworth for his crimes.
  72. 2021 Thursday B: POLITICAL NEWS I- a recent report shows that moderate Democrats outperformed their crazier left-wing Democrats in the 2020 Elections, yet the loony tunes liberal losers seem to retain control.   Next, Senator Bernie Sanders- breaking with the Biden administration- is demanding higher taxes than those proposed by Biden and his Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen.  Communism is expensive to fund.  Next, Joe Biden is planning on spending another $10 billion to get more shots into arms and has announced that he is going to double his pledge of getting 100 million vaccines administered in his first 100 days to 200 million doses.   In other fascinating news, the U.S. Secret Service tried to CONCEAL from the eyes of the American people a gun purchase by Hunter Biden.  Need that money to fend off people trying to steal his crack cocaine.
  73. 2021 Thursday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- The Atlanta Police Department arrested a man walking around the city carrying a concealed rifle and handguns.  Another fellow with a sex addiction?  Speaking of firearms, a federal appeals court in Hawaii has ruled that Americans have no intrinsic rights to open or conceal carry firearms of any kind.  Uh, okay.  Elsewhere, the murdering (allegedly) POS Syrian refugee who shot up King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier in the week appeared in court for the first time.  The judge denied Mr. Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa bail pending a mental health evaluation.   The scumbag should not be getting bail of any sort.  Period.   Next, Joe Biden backs a Supreme Court ruling on recent ruling in which law enforcement confiscated some schmo’s guns.
  74. 2021 Thursday D: COVID-19 CHI-VI- Scientists are studying four different possible origins for the Wuhan Virus Pandemic encircling the globe for about the fourth time now.  The Chi-Coms swear ‘nothing to see here’ and that ‘the U.S. Army snuck it into our country.’  Oh, please, you guys are communists, you are a bunch of lying f**ks.  Meanwhile, AstraZeneca continues to swear that despite all the claims to the contrary and controversy surrounding their vaccine for the China Virus, it’s still 76-percent effective.   Elsewhere, Empire State Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo finds himself in yet another crossfire, this time over him, his family, and sycophants receiving COVID-19 tests when very few tests were available to John and Jane Q. Public, the “Killer Governor” went behind the scenes and did what he needed to do for him, his family, and his hangers-on.  This is yet another impeachable offense facing the so-called “Lov Gov.”  Finally, the Biden administration is going to partner with dialysis clinics so the vaccines can be distributed to more people on a faster basis.
  75. 2021 Thursday E: POLITICAL NEWS II- When asked about him supporting elimination of the filibuster,[ix] Joe Biden hemmed and hawed about that.  Next, some ignorant reporter was asking Joe Biden if he were going to run again, if “Kooky Kamala” would be his running mate, and if he thought he would be running against President Donald J. Trump in 2024.  Even for us, this is incredibly stupid, and we would never ask anything about 2022, much less 2024.  Most people believe Joe is not going to be in office for a year, much less four, so why ask the old bugger if he will be seeking a second term, whether Ms. Sleep-her-way-to-the-Top will be his running mate, and whether the guy from whom he stole the election will be running  to win it back- a third time.  WTF?  This question, however, caused Joe Biden to begin mumbling and whispering.   
  76. 2021 Thursday F: POLITICAL NEWS III- Scandal-ridden former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens is considering a run to replace retiring Senator Roy Blunt.  The Republican former governor was involved in a steamy sex scandal and most people in the state are praying that someone better will step up and replace Senator Blunt.  We shall see.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says, ‘H.R. 1 is the single most dangerous bill in Congress today.’  Note- Georgia just passed some hardcore voting restriction laws designed to thwart H.R. 1.  Meanwhile, former CBP boss Tom Homan says that ‘the appointment of “Kooky Kamala” to be the new ‘Border Czar’ has to be the absolute worst person for the job.’  NO one respects “Kooky” because (1) she is unlikable, (2) unqualified, and (3) as untalented as they come.  She will make things far worse than they already are.   Next, according to Facebook’s oversight board, the permanent ban of President Donald J. Trump might not be so permanent (they are afraid that he is developing a superior social media product and want to cut him some slack so perhaps he will be lulled into complacency and won’t follow through).  Finally, we learn that Google received its ‘monopoly’ following their aid to President Barack Hussein Obama’s successful re-election bid.  No wonder the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day at Google Blogger soon found itself behind Google’s blockade.
  77. 2021 Thursday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- A rare Vincent Van Gogh painting of Paris is going up for auction.   Meanwhile, the Olympic Torch Relay kicks off under the cloud of the Chinese Virus.  Elsewhere, first time jobless claims last week fell to 684,000 new ones which is the best number since the start of the pandemic. Another 242,00 filed for special pandemic relief last week.  In total, 4.1 million workers remain on unemployment benefits.   Meanwhile, HHS is going to partner with the Pentagon to take two Texas military bases, Fort Bliss and Lackland Air Force Base so they can send illegal alien brats there to stay.   The Biden administration is struggling to find holding pens for all the illegals which is why partnering with private prisons across the U.S. would be a great way to house people who are already going to end up being imprisoned a taste of what’s to come.  Viva El Norte!
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,683,860 confirmed cases, +579,564, 2,742,357  confirmed deaths, +9,863, and 70,731,503 confirmed recoveries, +338,716.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,223,587 confirmed cases, up 61,840 from yesterday’s reporting, 550,726 confirmed deaths, UP 1,315, and 117,401,619 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them. 
  79. 2021 Thursday I: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,648,021 confirmed cases (same as yesterday’s count), 57,909 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the second highest state after California- Texas: currently, they have 2,762,648 confirmed cases, 47,701 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Switzerland, home of (allegedly) lots of Nazi loot: 588,118 cases of the virus, 10,247 confirmed deaths and 317,600 confirmed recoveries.  
  81. 2021 Thursday K:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,619.48, UP 199.42 points (+0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,977.68, UP 15.79 points (+0.12%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,909.52, UP 20.38 points (+0.52%).  The price of GOLD is $1,726.70 per troy oz., +1.60 (+0.09%) while the price of SILVER is $25.19 per troy ounce, +0.14 (+0.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,153.80 per troy oz, -0.40 (-0.03%) while the price of COPPER is $3.99 per pound, +0.02 (+0.41%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,626.00 per troy oz, -14.50 (-0.55%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $29,100.00 per troy oz., -700.00 (-2.35%).[xii]  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $58.54 per barrel, -0.02 (-0.03%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.68.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.   In Belarusian Rubles, one greenback equals 2.63.[xiii]  
  82. 2021 Thursday L: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.885 per gallon, $3.630 in Hawaii, and $3.323 in Washington state.[xiv]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,093,608,650,950 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  83. 2021 Thursday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV- South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds, Republican, said he’d like to see the Biden administration begin grabbing legally-owned firearms from the American people.  Next, Joe Biden defends his crappy border stance, saying that all kids who make it across will not be returned home, that the American people will take care of them.  He also blames President Donald J. Trump for the BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE for which he and his administration bear FULL RESPONSIBILITY.[xvi]  Joe, for Christ’s sake (If you still believe in His teachings), BUILD THE WALL, AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  Stop giving them COVID-19 relief checks, stop giving them hotel accommodations, we have Americans sleeping in the streets, in their cars, and in back alleyways, stop with the fricking illegal aliens.  Enough is flipping enough already![xvii]  Meanwhile, Joe Biden slaps down another Trump-era policy by handing the Palestinians $15 million of taxpayer monies to help them combat the Chinese Virus.  WTF!  Elsewhere, Axios says workers installed bullet-proof doors in the U.S. House of Representatives today.    
  84. 2021 Thursday N: POLITICAL NEWS V- New California Attorney General Rob Bonta once tried to recruit communists to work within state government.  WTF?  West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey blasts the Biden administration for trying to advance its crackpot climate change agenda via its COVID-19 Relief Bill and through its upcoming ‘infrastructure bill.’   Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo blasts those saying he and his family jumped to the head of the line in getting both Chi-Vi tests and immunizations.  He would never, never, do something as egregious as this, yet millions of Americans believe that he did.  Cuomo, just frigging resign before they complete the ethics probe into your criminal actions.[xviii]  In other news, the White House and the U.S. Secret Service is denying anyone did anything to cover up son, Hunter’s mishandling of a gun back in 2018.[xix]  NO one would ever do anything like that or so they claim.  Finally, the Arizona State Attorney General Mark Brnovich sues the Biden administration over the ban on tax cuts contained within the Biden COVID-19 PORKULUS RELIEF BILL.  What’s up with that, Joe?
  85. 2021 Thursday O: POLITICAL NEWS VI- Joe Biden is facing criticism from across the board over his stumble-bom performance at his ‘press conference’ today what with reading from a binder of notes, answering pre-arranged questions, and not toppling over in deep, gape-mouthed sleep.  He has his defenders but folks, he answered NO questions about the jihadist shooter in Boulder, Colorado, did not say it was an ACT OF HATE as only ‘white people’ as we are constantly told are the ONLY HATERS in the world.  The reporters congratulated Joe Biden on ‘being such a great guy that his personal magnetism is drawing millions of illegal aliens to flood into our country.’  This man MUST GO NOW.
  86. 2021 Thursday P: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS I- The Suez Canal may be out of commission now for months seeing as how a massive container ship ran aground blocking the channel.  There are 100 ships on both sides, trying to make passage which will now be impossible.  This will lead to higher prices and less goods for the world market.  Meanwhile,  the Chi-Coms are facing boycotts by numerous companies and corporations over their imprisonment of 1-2 million Uighur Muslims in concentration camps in Xinjiang Province.  Nike is among the big names with numerous others following close behind.  Will the Chi-Coms submit to global pressure?  Most likely not.  Communists always need a good ass-whooping before they pullback from their criminal actions.  
  87. 2021 Thursday Q: OTHER NEWS- Jessica Walters- star of the old show, “Arrested Development,” has died at age 80.  Next, Rutgers University will require proof of vaccination for the Chi-Vi before one can return to classes in the fall.  Elsewhere, the CEO of Twitter- Jack “Rasputin” Dorsey- mocks yes/no questions with a poll of some sort.  Screw him.   Meanwhile, decrepit old Joe Biden says the battle over voting rights (H.R. 1 federal takeover of the voting system) ‘makes Jim Crow look like Jim Eagle.’  F**k you, Joe.  Next, Scott Hennen/ partner, Flag Family Media & Fieldstone Group reported to Newsmax Grant Stinchfield reports that all sorts of evidence showing passports from Haiti, Cuban licenses, air tickets from Colombia, and welcome wagon slips informing people where to cross, how to cross, when to cross,  and once in the United States where to go.  The country is being overrun and the ‘Biden administration’ could give a flying f**k.  All patriotic Americans arm up and head to the border.  NOW.  
  88. 2021 Thursday R: OTHER NEWS II- Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that the Chi-Coms don’t fear our commander-in-chief, Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, a recent Zogby poll says that most Americans believe progressive ideas on the Cancel Culture, constant blubbering about race, gender, evil white people, and other issues are weakening the United States from within yet there are very few brave souls willing to combat it.  Friends, the world is in the fight of its lives, do we permit leftists and left-wing cultures to overrun and destroy conservative values, freedom from tyranny, and liberty for all or do we begin fighting back?  We say, fight back and destroy them.  Elsewhere, RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia signed a sweeping new elections law into effect today, hoping to cover for what he did in the 2020 Presidential Election.  What difference does it make when you will sign a consent order allowing Stacey Abrams to steal the 2022 Mid-Term Elections?  Impeach and remove this POS.
  89. 2021 Thursday S: QUIP OF THE DAY FROM CHEF ITZI- Canada had better hope the U.S. does not journey down the path of socialism-communism because if it does, their nation could very well become our ‘Tibet:’ a place to send excess population as well as a place to exploit of its resources.  Mexico had better be careful, too, we might absorb them.
  90. 2022 Friday:

[i] A hodgepodge of foreign communists, many coming from the United States, France, Great Britain, and other European and Latin American countries.  Famed novelist Ernest Hemingway writes about one such individual portrayed by Gary Cooper in the film adaptation of his book, “For Whom the Bell Tolls.”

[ii] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the Rising Sons or Fever Tree.

[iii] We are not sure when we will promote the music of Oakland’s Tower of Power, but you can be sure that we will do so when we begin promoting the music of funk-rock, horn-powered bands.

[iv] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “Yesterday and Today,” appeared on Friday, 18-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.  The album containing the hit, “Happy Together,” was presented on Friday, 06-September-2013.  Please seek it out and add it to your collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[viii] Critics blast Joe Biden for signing 37 executive orders while doing just one monotonous news conference.

[ix] Joe Biden echoed his crazy left-wing Democrats by decrying the Senate filibuster as a relic of the Jim Crow Era.  Joe, Democrats were the party that opposed civil rights, the party of slavery, Jim Crow, red-lining, lynching, the KKK, burning crosses, firehoses and police dogs and Bull Connor busting open heads with billy clubs and night sticks.  Democrats started the Civil War, fought the Civil War, and their northern brethren, the Copperheads defended them in Congress.  Shut up about racism and Jim Crow and racial hatred, the Democratic Party personifies race hatred and white supremacy.  Enough is enough.

[xvi] Republicans are openly disputing and mocking the Biden border claims. 

[xvii] The mentally challenged old bugger- proud of his border job- still won’t commit to transparency along the southern border.

[xviii] The story is even worse than ever we believed.  Cuomo had medical professionals visit the homes of his family members and his well-connected friends and then the tests were put at the front of the line in state laboratories.  So says the Fox News Channel.

[xix] Two parts to this story- Hunter lied on an FBI background check that he did NOT use drugs just as he and his brother Beau’s wife dumped a gun into a garbage can near a school and then went back to recover it and found that it had walked.  Neither crime is good.

Trump.  
  61. 2017 Friday: Thanks to schmucks such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Trump administration and their GOP allies in the House of Representatives are forced to pull their plan to overturn Obamacare and to replace it with a better plan.   Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee goes to war with itself over the bogus Trump-Russia Collusion scam, the very same engineered by the Democrats.  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, and ranking member, the locoweed Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, are butting heads over information coming out that shows that the Obama administration SPIED on the then-Trump campaign.

Mueller III investigation into Donald Trump, Trump campaign officials, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia by saying that ‘Mueller’s team had found no evidence of collusion between now-President Trump, members of his campaign, his friends and family and Russia nor was there any sign of obstruction.’  In effect, this clears the president and those around him other than those convicted of process crimes during the investigation.  The Democrats could not handle the outcome and rushed to the microphones braying like dogs for ALL the evidence and promise to continue the witch hunt into Mr. Trump.  The investigation began- many believe- in late 2015 or early 2016 and involved members of the Hillary Clinton team, Barack Obama Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as foreign operatives hired by members of the Obama team to set up candidate- and then- President Trump.  
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Democrats continue stalling in the U.S. Senate by holding up Wuhan Virus relief legislation by trying to stuff in Green New Deal, Pro-Death, union, identity politics, election fraud such as ballot harvesting in ALL 50 states, and more.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues rebuffing them in the hope that honest and legitimate legislation can occur.  Meanwhile, the world around mid-day acknowledges approximately 414,277 cases of COVID-19, with 38,819 new cases over the past 24 hours.  Global deaths are 18,557 what with 2,146 in the previous 24 hours.  In the United States, there are 51,542 cases of the Kung Flu with 8,328 new cases over the past 24 hours.  There is a total of 674 deaths, up by 95 over the previous 24 hours.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closes UP by 11.3% or up 2,112.98 points, closing at 20,764.91.  Bravo. 
  65. 2020 Tuesday A: Bill Rieflin- drummer with King Crimson from 2013-15 / 2017 until today- died in his hometown of Seattle, Washington, on this date at age 59.  Cancer was the cause.

  67. 2021 Wednesday A: GOP NEWS– Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox, GOP, signed a measure that will put filters on porn sites within the state.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, GOP-lead states are fighting the good fight against Joe Biden’s increasingly insane policies, wish lists of liberal loony tunes spending and deprivation of the American people’s rights.  Elsewhere, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is pushing the Justice Department to continue the probe into perjury charges against the crackpot witnesses the Democrats trotted out to smear now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick should all be doing time in federal prisons for the bulls**t they pulled at his confirmation hearings back in 2018.  Get them, Chuck!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump is supporting Max Miller in his bid to unseat RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez in Ohio’s 16th congressional district.  Gonzalez voted to impeach President Trump if you recall.
  68. 2021 Wednesday B: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I–  The person who used to be known as Prince Harry, aka Mr. Meghan Markle, is taking a no-show gig as the ‘chief impact officer’ at a Silicon Valley startup, Betterup, that will help emotionally challenged individuals- like his wife and boss- overcome their issues.  Bravo, Harry, bravo.  Sort of like Hunter Biden working at Burisma.   Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders says that he is ‘uncomfortable’ with the permanent ban placed on President Donald J. Trump by Twitter.  However, President Trump says he has ‘no plans to return to Twitter,’ seeing as how he is in the midst of creating his own untouchable social media platform.   Next, the New York Justice Department says the impeachment probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo could continue for months.  So, charge him with the homicides of 15,000-20,000 people and get him out of office.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Wednesday C: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS–  Vladimir Putin’s chef- businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin- has written to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding he be removed from a most-wanted list.  The FBI put a bounty of $250,000 atop his head last month for his apprehension and extradition to the United States over bogus charges he somehow meddled in the 2016 Presidential Election on behalf of then-candidate Donald J. Trump.  He says the FBI must stop offering the reward as it violates several principles under human rights laws.  That’s Joe Biden for you, looking for fall guys he can blame for his own shortcomings such as Hunter Biden being in the hip pockets of both the Ukraine and China.  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declares victory in the recent elections, but the majority is still unclear.   Elsewhere, a massive container ship in the Suez Canal has run aground due to high winds and is blocking passage to other ships.
  70. 2021 Wednesday D: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUNS NEWS– Representative Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says the Dems are ‘playing politics with our lives’ over their renewed drive to strip the American people of their guns.  (Note- we’d like to see them try.  First, there are going to be SO-O-O MANY gun thefts in this country, the cops will be tied up seeking them while secondly, it’s like what former NRA boss Charlton Heston used to say: ‘you can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.  Joe- NO one is going to surrender their guns, NO one.  Come and get them.  Chef Alvin).  Still, after the POS Syrian Muslim refugee Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa[viii] killed 10 WHITE people at the King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier this week, the Dems began to go bat-crap-crazy in pushing their gun-grabbing bills.   Joe Biden says he doesn’t have to ‘wait for Congress’ to begin stripping guns.  Go for it, Joe.
  71. 2021 Wednesday E: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS II– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer[ix] swears on his mother’s soul that the two firearms bills sent to him from the House of Representatives will receive swift attention.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris is urging swift hearing and passage of these gun-grabbing bills.  Interesting note- John Bachman of Newsmax says that the ‘Democrats are hypocrites.  They claim to hate guns, yet they spread guns all over the world’ selling them to thugs, criminals, terrorists, murderers, and other human trash.  He reminded his viewers of the Obama era “Fast and Furious” program that put military grade weapons into the hands of Mexican narcoterrorists.  
  72. 2021 Wednesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– ‘The (Communist) Squad in Congress now claims that NOT supporting statehood for Washington, D.C., is RACIST.  The federal district was NEVER intended to be a state, girls, it was pulled together from several states so that NO single state would claim rights to sole ownership of the federal government.  No, just because lots of black folks live there does not make it ‘racist.’  Everyone living in the District of Columbia knows the score.  Shut the f**k up.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that H.R. 1 is a bald political power grab.  Mitch- you should have supported President Donald J. Trump when you had the opportunity.  Now, shut the hell up.  Finally, the Wisconsin State Assembly authorizes an investigation into election fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
  73. 2021 Wednesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Coincidence of the Day”- last week, Dr. Moncef Slaoui said that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears 90-percent of getting the COVID-19 vaccine programs underway what with Operation Warp Speed and Joe Biden just 10-percent.  Today, GlaxoSmithKline terminated Dr. Slaoui for purported sexual harassment allegations against him.  Wow.  Is this not amazing?  Cancel Culture strikes yet again.  Defend Trump and you lose your job.  Well, we defend Trump- WTF are YOU going to do to US?   Next, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says AstraZeneca soon to release an updated report on its coronavirus vaccines.   Meanwhile, Caribbean nations are begging the Biden administration NOT to be stingy with the coronavirus vaccines, to please, remember the countries on the U.S.’ third border.  (Note- when these countries do something about the horrendous foodborne illness visitors typically acquire upon eating their first meals there, we will send you vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU).  Finally, five years after his untimely death, famed rock star Prince’s ashes will go on public display.
  74. 2021 Wednesday H: ODDBALL AND HUMOROUS NEWS OF THE DAY– By a final vote of 52-48 (with RINO Senators Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, and Susan Collins, RINO-ME, confirmed the nomination of tranny (woof!) former Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine to become the next assistant secretary of health.  Okie dokie.  Aren’t we proud as a nation!  Next, a chick with a dick,[x] Kataluna Enriquez has been crowned Miss Silver State USA, one step away from competing in the Miss Nevada USA pageant.  In yet another slap to the faces of women and girls, the tranny beat out numerous biological females to become the first beauty pageant winner with a dong swinging down under.  Folks, what the hell is going on?  Almost makes one wish the Chinese would take the country over.  Oh, speaking about ‘affronts’ to women, “Kooky Kamala” Harris and former President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton are teaming up on a program with which to empower women.  Does anyone see the irony in this? [xi] (They are already receiving massive blowback for this bulls**t symposium).
  75. 2021 Wednesday I: U.S. BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears to ‘shut the Senate down’ if the Biden administration denies him access to the southern border.  Senator Marsha Blackburn was visiting the border today and she said, ‘what a mess.’  Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the ongoing border catastrophe.’  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden’s rhetoric and his first day actions are responsible for the border catastrophe.’   Speaking of this crisis, this holocaust, Joe Biden has yet to name a nominee to head the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.   Meanwhile, Congressman Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the ‘migrants must be made known as to what awaits them on this side of the border.’  The border states must find a way with which they can finish the wall on their territory if they cannot do it on federal land.  Steve Bannon, where the hell are YOU and YOUR charity to fund border wall construction?
  76. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,378,693 confirmed cases, +453,805, 2,736,980  confirmed deaths, +9,340, and 70,573,246 confirmed recoveries, +252,735.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,161,747 confirmed cases, up 57,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,411 confirmed deaths, UP 798, and 117,371,050 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.

  81. 2021 Wednesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Drawing #3545 with a pot of $31 million on the line: 10, 11, 13, 32, 38, and Mega 17.  Out of 111,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,815 apiece. Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #831 with a $220 million pot on the line: 04, 09, 17, 27, 38, and Power 18.   Out of 95,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,606. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday P: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS I– Tesla now says that its customers can buy their electric vehicles with Bitcoin.  Having bought $1.5 billion in Bitcoin several months back, any cars bought with Bitcoin will remain in their Bitcoin account- they are not going to convert it into dollars.  Next, the Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesperson said that yes, indeed, North Korea did fire at least one projectile into the East China Sea.  That’s Kim for you- NO respect for Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, as 14 states sue the Biden administration for its almost immediate crackdown on all energy projects on federal lands, the U.S. Department of the Interior announces that it’s going to review all existing and applications for fossil fuel drilling on federal lands.  With a Norwegian-Native American in charge, Debra Haaland, you know there won’t be any new drilling and many existing oil and natural gas leases will be shut down.  Windmills and solar farms.  
  83. 2021 Wednesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS II– Virginia Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam signs a bill that will end capital punishment in the state.  Since its inception as a British colony, there have been 1,400 executions.  Since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, there have been 113 executions which ranks the Old Dominion State second only to the Lone Star State in the number of executions carried out.  Still, Governor “Black Face” says the death penalty should be available for especially heinous crimes but throughout history, the death penalty has fallen mostly on minorities, the mentally ill, and the poor.  Elsewhere, Intel is going to build two chip-manufacturing plants in Arizona, so says CEO Pat Gelsinger.  Not only will it produce chips for its own purposes, but it will also serve as a ‘foundry,’ which means it will build microchips for other companies.  The company will qualify for about $90 million in tax credits when construction is completed, and it will also provide at least 3,000 high-paying jobs.  Even better, it will become an alternative source for chip manufacturing so if Asia craps out or withholds chips from Western nations, problem solved.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS III– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, today and informed our allies that ‘America was back’ and that we would not put our ‘allies in a position of ‘us or them,’ meaning- we guess- that if the Germans want to buy natural gas from the Russians, the nation against whom the victorious Western allies created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to defend against- then so be it.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg invited the Russians to return to having an observatory role in the organization.  Secretary Blinken wants the organization to remain strong against both Russian and Chinese hegemony and that if the Chi-Coms cause problems for one country, they cause them for all countries within the group.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they blasted the U.S. today for everything from being a racist nation to its out-of-control spending.  Ouch.
  85. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The reformed Band released their next album, “High on the Hog,” on February 27, 1996.  Once again, the group performed numerous covers but what the heck- they performed them with verve, class, and a great deal of sass.  The Band features Rick Danko (guitars, bass, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, bass, vocals, and mandolins), Garth Hudson (keyboards, accordions, saxophones, even vocals), Richard Manuel (piano on one track), Jim Weider (guitars/vocals), Rick Bell (keyboards/accordions/vocals), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), along with guest spots by loads of other talented and well-known musicians, at least 15-20 of them.  While it’s challenging not to have major songwriter and guitarist Robbie Robertson in the fold, it is what it is.  We hope you will seek this album out as it is the first of a trio of new works to come.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

[i] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iii] 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 pleasure

[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]When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[vi] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[vii] Feeble Old Joe said that he would take the news media with him when he went to do a tour of the southern border.  Now that he has appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to do ‘something’ about the border, there no longer is a need to take the media there to see what the hell is occurring down there.

[viii] Speaking of this piece of desert dirt, amazing how all the left-wing news agencies and pundits stopped with the shooter being a WHITE man and then NOT reporting his name so they can suck up to their beloved Muslims.  We have heard unverified reports of the scumbag yelling “Allah Akbar” while he walked up to and then shot his victims at close range.  What if one of the victims had a gun and put a round into the shooter’s face?  That would be awesome.  He had rants all over Facebook blasting those whom he believed were ‘racist against Islam’ and even worse, the vaunted FBI had Mr. Alissa on a ‘watch list.’  Lot of good FBI watchlists are, huh?  Still, losers such as Ilhan Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and ‘Baldy,’ Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district all zipped their generally flapping lips so as not to have to admit the scumbag Alissa was one of theirs.

[ix] “Prune Face” would be a good alternative name for Cryin’ Chuck seeing as how we have labeled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi as such.  Dick Tracy had some cool villains.

[x] If you want to see ‘chicks with dicks,’ come to Los Angeles, California, and take a trip down the Sunset Strip.

[xi] “Kooky Kamala” slept her way to the top beginning with powerful Golden State Democrat Willie Brown and Bill, well, everyone knows about Bill.  We don’t have to list all the transgressions against women this guy committed and who can forget that he flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane, what was it- 19 times?  Yikes.

76. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 2022

1954 Wednesday: the fighting at the massive French base Dien Bien Phu has been fierce.

  42. 1955 Thursday: The 89th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John Marshall Harlan II assumed his position on the nation’s high court on this date.  A Republican, President Dwight D.

  44. 1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Tibet in the advance of Chinese troops to take refuge in neighboring India.   The Chi-Coms claim that Tibet is their territory in the same way they claim Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao.  The U.S. should have nuked the Chi-Coms long ago when we had the opportunity; it’s a shame we failed to do what had to be done.
  45. 1960 Thursday: President Dwight D. Eisenhower forms an anti-Fidel Castro-exile army under the auspices of the CIA.  Communists in Cuba is not good and it’s clear that the U.S. failed to nip this one in the bud.  Soon, the Soviets will be building military bases on the island.  Not good.
  46. 1963 Sunday: Pope John XXIII beatified Mother Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton, an American.  Twelve years later, Pope Paul VI canonized her.

  49. 1968 Sunday: A peaceful anti-Vietnam War protest in London was followed by a riot outside the U.S. Embassy; more than 200 people underwent arrest and over 80 people were arrested.   Why the Brits are crying is unclear; we supported them in their endeavors to crush the communists in Malaysia post-World War II just as we gave aid to the French fighting in Indochina.  Ingrates.
  50. 1969 Monday: Golda Meir becomes the fourth prime minister of Israel.  This woman would become a major wartime leader, devastating one Arab army after another.
  51. 1970 Tuesday: The United States cast its first veto in the U.N.

  52. 1972 Friday: To achieve desegregation, President Richard M.

  55. 1977 Thursday: In beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico, heavyweight boxer Larry Holmes, aka the “Easton Assassin,” puts his pro boxing record to 24-0 with a fifth round TKO of opponent, Horace Robinson, in a scheduled 10-round match.
  56. 1985 Sunday: President Ronald Reagan agreed to a joint study with Canada on acid rain.
  57. 1988 Thursday: Avianca Flight 410, a Boeing 727, crashed after takeoff into a mountain in Colombia, killing all 143 people aboard it.  Meanwhile, Iran claims that Iraq has used poison gas in the Iran-Iraq War.
  58. 1989 Friday: A series of solar flares caused a violent magnetic storm that caused power outages over large regions of Canada. 
  59. 1990 Saturday: Famed English bassist, Ric Grech who played with Family[viii], Blind Faith[ix], and other UK bands, died due to alcoholism on this date in Leicester, UK.  He was just 44 years-old.

  63. 2000 Friday: In Uganda, a mass holocaust to rival that of the Reverend Jim Jones occurs in the country as 800-plus people die.  The Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God is deemed a mass murder and suicide, one orchestrated by leaders of the cult.  Ugandan law enforcement believe that the five main leaders of the group died in the fire that took the lives of many but then came to expect that at least one of them was in the wind- with the movement’s wealth.
  64. 2001 Saturday: OPEC announces major cuts in production, effective April 1- 4% or one million barrels per day.  Of course, nations dependent upon this oil output are flabbergasted as gasoline prices will go UP.

  68. 2005 Thursday: The People’s Republic of China frees Uighur Muslim dissident and businesswoman Rebiya Kadeer on medical parole.  They probably decided that if they tortured this woman any longer, her heart would give out, so the Chi-Coms most likely bowed to Western pressure.   Kadeer became a millionaire through her real estate holdings so it’s clear the Chi-Coms wanted to shake her down.
  69. 2006 Friday: Federal regulators reported the deaths of two women in addition to four others who had taken the abortion pill RU-486; Planned Parenthood- the notorious ‘baby chop shop’- said it would immediately stop disregarding the approved instructions for the use of the murderous drug.  Elsewhere, fashion designed Oleg Cassini died on Long Island, NY, at age 92.  Meanwhile- in Washington, D.C.- the former 65th U.S. Treasury Secretary G.

  70. 2007 Saturday: Australian Prime Minister John Howard announces that Australia will keep its troops in Iraq until the Iraqi government is able to maintain order.   In other truly fascinating news, heavy metal band Iron Maiden[x] becomes the first heavy metal band to tour India.  How about that?
  71. 2008 Monday: Senator Barack Obama goes to the microphones in Philadelphia to give a speech on race.  He is trying to tamp down concerns that he might be a racist.  No, not ‘our Obama.’  In other news, the Democratic Party of Florida abandons a plan to demand all mail-in ballots for the Democratic Primary Election.   Elsewhere, the Fed is blasted for choosing to bail out banks but not homeowners.  The housing crisis continues to worsen.
  72. 2009 Tuesday: Upset continues to grow over AIG executives going to get bonuses so the Democrat-controlled Congress is threatening to pass a bill by which they can slap hefty taxes on these bonuses.  Other companies that have gotten bailouts like Citigroup and Morgan Stanley are seeking ways they can hand out bonuses to their executives without everyone and his or her brother knowing.  They are trying to get in before the Congress can come after them.
  73. 2010 Wednesday: as the Obama administration continues trying to drum up votes with which to pass the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka the PPACA, aka the ACA, aka “Obamacare,” the White House gets a ‘win’ when two Democratic congressmen opposed to the bill for assorted reasons change their minds and will vote for it.  Dennis Kucinich of Ohio and Dan Kildee of Michigan announce they are ‘yes votes.’  Oh, good, we can hardly wait.
  74. 2011 Thursday: St. Patrick’s Day parades are now a worldwide event.  Meanwhile, Libya claims it will end fighting on Sunday for the jihadists to turn themselves in to the government.   Elsewhere, in a recent drone strike in Pakistan, the CIA blasts 40 Pakistani civilians to kingdom come and wounds God knows how many others.  WTF are you doing, President Obama?  Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled House passes a bill with which to defund the left-wing NPR.
  75. 2012 Saturday: Despite being under house arrest in Great Britain, Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, announces he will seek a seat in the senate of Australia.  Meanwhile, ISIS thugs in Damascus, Syria, attack two government offices killing several government employees and wounding others.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi Arabia is sending weapons to anti-Assad forces in Syria.

  77. 2014 Monday: L’ Wren Scott, the 49-year-old model, designer, and longtime girlfriend of Rolling Stone[xi] Mick Jagger is discovered dead in her apartment, a mystery to this day.  In other news, Russian President Vladimir Putin recognized Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula as an “independent and sovereign country,” ignoring sanctions imposed by President Barack Hussein Obama of the United States and various European countries.
  78. 2016 Thursday: Following the U.S. placing new sanctions on the ever-belligerent North Koreans over their nuclear weapons and missile programs, the People’s Republic of China inserts itself between their allies, the North Koreans, and their foes, the U.S. by opposing the unilateral actions of President Barack Hussein Obama.
  79. 2017 Friday: Donna Brazile, former head of the DNC, admits she gave Hillary Clinton copies of debate questions ahead of her debate with now-President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, in the Yemeni civil war, a U.S. Apache helicopter piloted by unknown individuals opens fire on a Somali refugee boat off the coast of the war-torn country killing at least 40 refugees and injuring another 35.  NO one knows who committed this dastardly act.
  80. 2018 Saturday: The National People’s Congress appoints Wang Qishan as vice president on this date.  In Iran, a close ally of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his former vice president is arrested for criticizing the Iranian judiciary.  No room for criticism in that country.
  81. 2019 Sunday: After tropical cyclone Idai roars through eastern Zimbabwe killing at least 259 people, the government declares a state of emergency.  Meanwhile, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announces she is running for president.  Wow.
  82. 2020 Tuesday: Much to the horror of New England Patriots fans, quarterback Tom Brady announces that after 20 years with the team, he is leaving the team to pursue opportunities with other teams.  COVID-19 update: as of today, there are 197,802 known cases of the virus what with 7,955 deaths and 81,691 recoveries.  Of course, the birthplace of the Wuhan Virus- communist China- leads the pack with 80,881 cases with Italy in second place what with 31,506 cases, and the Islamo-fascist republic of Iran in third place with 16,169 cases.  The United States is in eighth place with 6,223 cases with West Virginia being the ONLY state sans any reported cases.  Meanwhile, young people continue flocking to beaches across the country to celebrate Spring Break.  What a bunch of losers as many food service establishments across the country are shuttering their doors and sending employees home like many of us chef-authors here have done. 
  83. 2020 Tuesday A: In the three presidential primaries held today, candidate Joe Biden beat the hell out of his opponent Bernie Sanders winning Arizona, Florida, and Illinois.  Ohio postponed its primary until later in the year out of fear of the COVID-19 virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, the one the Chinese gave the world.  Meanwhile, speaking of the Hubei Hooey, Pfizer and Biontech sign deals to develop a vaccine for the Chi-Com Virus, the Chi-Vi, the ‘VID.  People do not believe it is possible but with President Donald J. Trump’s backing, anything is possible (although the Democrats will never admit it).
  84. 2021 Wednesday: DAY 57 of the Biden Regime.   The Catchup: two stories from yesterday we failed to report- first more than 800 Massachusetts state police officers refuse to take the Xi Jinping Bat Virus vaccine.  Second, Governor Ralph “Blackface/KKK” Northam of Virginia signs a bill into law that will give 69,000 current and former felons the right to vote.  (Note- if the GOP wants to stop this sort of legislation from damaging the nation, Republicans MUST make the tactical decision to move forward instead of bemoaning a crap-ass bill such as Governor Northam’s.  If these are the rules of the game, then play to WIN the game.  Later, we can eliminate laws such as these when we return to the strategic level of the war against communism, socialism, and liberalism, i.e., the modern-day Democratic Party.  Goldie).  Other news- the recent crash near El Paso, Texas, killed at least 8 illegal immigrants and injured numerous others, all of whom were packed into a truck and was speeding away from Texas Department of Public Safety officials.  When you catch them, beat the living s**t out of them.
  85. 2021 Wednesday A:  ATLANTA MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRE- NO matter how much Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, Democrat, wants to make the shootings of massage parlor workers and customers into the latest example of Asian hate in the country, we learn that the shooter- Robert Aaron Long- was not even a QAnon member, a Proud Boy, an Oath Keeper but a sick individual who had an incurable sex addiction (which he will be getting a whole lot of in prison) and saw that the only way he could fix himself was to go into massage parlors and whack everyone he saw.  Half the fatalities were Asian chicks, the others were customers of various skin colors, shades, and hues, yet; the Dems scream about Asian Race Hatred in the United States.   (Note- I think one of the chicks gave the shooter a case of incurable syphilis which made him go berserk.  Back during the Vietnam War, U.S. servicemen afflicted with the so-called ‘black syphilis’ could not be returned home).
  86. 2021 Wednesday B: 2020 Election Updates- Sen. Tom Cotton, R-AR, condemns the U.S. Chamber of Commerce backing various Democratic candidates around the country in the 2020 Elections.  The Chamber like every other government department, agency, and affiliate is supposed to be- as required by law– to be NONPARTISAN.  Thank you, Senator Cotton.   Meanwhile, intelligence news continues to come out showing that the Russians, the Chi-Coms (they always try to leave the number one foe of the country out of any list of scumbags), Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and most every other s**thole nation tried to interfere in the 2020 Presidential Election.  This morning, some unnamed source in the Deep State swore that the Russians tried to help Trump win in 2020 (yeah, right) but like usual, NO EVIDENCE exists of any change in vote tallies.  No, the only place where changes in vote tallies exists is with Dominion Voting Systems- a corrupt company from a third-rate country as well as Hugo Chavez’s election-stealing software of choice, Smartmatic.  We hope to see both companies destroyed.   As for Canada, F**k Canada.  Never visiting that s**thole country ever again.  Regarding the 2020 Presidential Election, President Donald J. Trump lambastes the U.S. Supreme Court over its timidity in NOT hearing the numerous election fraud cases brought before it.  (Speaking of President Trump, he won’t decide on another run in 2024 until we see the outcome of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections).  
  87. 2021 Wednesday C: Today is St. Patrick’s Day and a massive parade of pro-Donald J. Trump supporters is marching through the Big Apple, carrying gigantic American flags while human scum Antifa and Black Lives Matter attempts to impede their progress.  Send Antifa and BLM scum to Riker’s Island for a couple of weeks.  They will exit the notorious facility wearing dresses and prancing around like Kansas City f*****s.  It would do them good.  Still, dimwits such as Mayor Bill Di Blasio and sex-perv Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo claim that Trump has NO support in either the city or the Empire State.   
  88. 2021 Wednesday D:  Joe Biden Updates- senile Joe Biden is still demanding that EVERY American worker wear masks to prevent the spread of the China Virus while on the border, no one cares, come on in, illegal aliens!  F**k Joe.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden flipflops yet again by distancing himself from a fellow groper, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  He tells George Stephanopoulos that he believes ‘Cuomo will undergo prosecution.’  Next, Joe Biden’s nominee for deputy secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor Julie Su is on the hotseat because under her watch in California, tens of millions of dollars were stolen in COVID-19 relief funds, money that went to foreigners, death row inmates, and illegal aliens.  Just what we need at the federal level.   Meanwhile, we continue hearing about the upcoming Joe Biden press conference and all we can do is laugh until our guts hurt.  This mentally debilitated dimwit cannot speak for longer than a few minutes.  Watch out for DEEP FAKES and MULTIPLE TAKES spliced together to make it appear to be LIVE.  Finally, Joe Biden supports ENDING the filibuster NOW.  Dems claim the filibuster is a relic from the Jim Crow era.
  89. 2021 Wednesday E:  U.S. Border News- Representative Chip Roy, R-TX 21st District, says that MOST illegals are young adult (military age) males and NOT the children the Democrats wail they are.   Meanwhile, the ‘Biden administration’ is limiting what Customs and Border Patrol officials can tell the press about the massive invasion along the southern border.  Many consider it to be an ‘informal gag order’ as if they speak to the press, they stand to lose their jobs.  Next, more than 40 Republicans accuse the ‘Biden administration’ of committing ‘unlawful acts’ along the southern border by halting construction of the Trump Border Wall that already has been funded.  They demand construction continue.  Meanwhile, Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st District, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing to the United States what Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is doing to New York.’  We’ll let you decide on the appropriate adjectives. Next, polls of GOP voters say that Republicans support harsh measures along the border.[xii]  Finally, ‘Vice President Kooky Kamala Harris’ continues to evade reporters’ questions as to the status of the illegal alien brats in custody. 
  90. 2021 Wednesday F: LOSER News Update- Portland, Oregon, Mayor Ted Wheeler told reporters that ‘Portland residents are tired by the nightly violence.’  Then STOP IT, you frigging dope!  Crack some heads, send people to prison, do to them what they have been doing to your city for more than 18 months now.  Exterminate them like the vermin they are.   In other LOSER News Updates, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom now is taking the threat to his existence seriously but it’s too late for him to save himself.  He continues blasting Republicans but Gavin, there are more Democrats in the Golden State who want to see YOU GO.  The drive has until April 29 to authenticate ALL signatures and then arrange the recall election.  We have another Gray Davis heading out of office.  Meanwhile, left-wing dimwit LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers has purchased part ownership of the Boston Red Sox, a Major League Baseball team.  Next, WOKE actress Natalie Portman has rewritten all fairy tales and fables so that they are now WOKE, too.[xiii]  Finally, the New York State Assembly has retained former Robert S. Mueller III investigative attorney Greg Andres of Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP to investigate the “Lov Gov,” Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Ai-yi-yi!  Cuomo is in BIG TROUBLE.
  91. 2021 Wednesday G:  Miscellaneous Updates- 400 Illinois National Guardsmen-and-women return home from Washington, D.C., and are glad to do so even though U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin begged them to stay.   Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken promises the “U.S. will counter Chi-Com aggressiveness” while the defense secretary promises to protect South Korea from their northern neighbors.  Awesome.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate is discussing the “Bolivar Act,” a law that will prohibit U.S. tax dollars from going to contracts in which Venezuelan government apparatchiks have their hands.  Giving U.S. tax dollars to abortionists is A-Okay but we have to stand strong against the Maduro regime.  Wow.  Next, Disneyland to reopen at the end of April.  Finally, Uber drivers in the United Kingdom to get minimum wage, holiday pay, and pensions BUT NO sick leave and family leave pay.  Double wow.  (Note- Derek Chauvin’s defense attorneys now believe his trial should be moved elsewhere since the city of Minneapolis paid George Floyd’s family $27 million for their pain and suffering.  We agree).
  92. 2021 Wednesday H: Second Amendment/Gun News- Arizona State Representative Leo Biasiucci, R-AZ 5th House District, has put forth H.B. 2111 that will transform Arizona into a Second Amendment sanctuary state.  We love it.  A Senate counterpart, Senator David Gowan, R-AZ 14th Senate District, has also put forth a similar bill- S.B. 1328.  Representative Biasiucci says he ‘borrowed the same language former California Governor Jerry Brown used when he crafted the Golden State’s notorious sanctuary state law.   California’s law stood the challenges and thus so will Arizona’s when the Democrats take it to the courts which they inevitably ALWAYS do.   At the federal level, 34 Democrats express support for the Assault Weapons Ban of 2021.  Our thoughts on the matter?  F**k all of them Democrats.  The American people are taking great care to conceal their guns from the federal government.   Elsewhere, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, says that ‘the Democratic Party’s infrastructure bill is a Trojan Horse with which it will drop massive tax increases on the American people.’  He also says that the Dems are doing everything possible to bypass any GOP input or resistance.  Finally, the IRS is extending the tax deadline into May 2021.
  93. 2021 Wednesday I:  COVID-19 News and Related News- Australia is going to help Papua New Guinea get its hands on 1 million Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  However, Dr. Brian Tyson of All-Valley Urgent Care in El Centro, California, says he has used hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, with enormous success which means this questionable vaccine was NEVER necessary to combat the Chi-Com illness.’   Next, we learn today that the Chi-Coms have infiltrated various U.S. virology facilities and studies so they can- you guessed it- steal our challenging work like the scumbags ALWAYS do.  The Chi-Coms have not had an original idea in decades.  Elsewhere, the HHS is going to invest $12 billion so it can test more people.  How about testing the illegal aliens all over the southern border?   Finally, Germany claims that NEW cases of the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever are rising at an exponential rate.  This tells us that every time the world is returning to normal, the left-wing globalists start crying about cases going UP.  They want one-world government, and this is the pathway in which to do it.   (Note- Senator Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee says another way the communist Chinese enter the U.S. and corrupt our people is through the sister cities program.  Boot all Chi-Com entities out of the United States.  NOW!)
  94. 2021 Wednesday J: Democratic Party News- the Senate is going to reverse the filibuster rule.  They want Puerto Rico and Washington, D.C., to become states to which, we say, “Why not Guam, American Samoa, U.S. Virgin Islands, Northern Marianas, Midway, Johnston, and Palmyra Atolls, Baker Island, Howland Island, Jarvis Island, Wake Island, Navassa Island, and Kingman Reef?  If the Chi-Coms can build real estate atop reefs and the like, why can’t the Democrats?  Imagine how many senators and congressmen-and-women you scumbags could add to the House and Senate?  Start breaking states up, you could add another 25 stars to the flag, 50 more senators and God knows how many congressional seats.  
  95. 2021 Wednesday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 120,985,381 confirmed cases, +479,407, 2,675,158, confirmed deaths, +9,561, and 68,595,050 confirmed recoveries, +269,845.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,788,154 confirmed cases, up 68,346 from yesterday’s reporting, 542,304 confirmed deaths, UP 1,274, and 115,823,492 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 213,827 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    
  96. 2021 Wednesday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,628,693 confirmed cases, 56,788 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for several days now).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 353,960 confirmed cases, 5,206 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Maine, aka the Pine Tree State: currently, they have 47,591 confirmed cases, 725 confirmed deaths, and 12,898 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 822,703 confirmed cases, 6,048 confirmed deaths, and 790,340 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Chile, the home of the rescued trapped miners and Augusto Pinochet: 900,782 cases of the old the Communist China Condition, 21,789 confirmed deaths and 845,712 confirmed recoveries.  
  97. 2021 Wednesday M: Boy!  The Stock Markets are up because American BIG BUSINESS is salivating at all the low wage economic slave labor pouring across the southern border.  Time to invest BIG.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,015.37, UP 189.42 points (+0.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,525.20, UP 53.63 points (+0.40%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,974.12, UP 11.41 points (+0.29%).  The price of GOLD is $1,744.00 per troy oz., +16.90 (+0.98%) while the price of SILVER is $26.41 per troy ounce, +0.35 (+1.35%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,216.10 per troy oz, +16.80 (+1.40%) while the price of COPPER is $4.15 per pound, +0.03 (+0.64%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,577.50 per troy oz, +3.16 (+79.00%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.50 per troy oz, +2.11 (+45.00%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.44 per barrel, -0.16 (-0.25%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.38.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Australian dollar, one greenback equals 1.28.   Meanwhile, the Fed expects to keep its key rate near ZERO through 2023 which means the wealthy continue becoming wealthier while the middle class continues sinking into the lower economic classes.  This is NOT right.
  98. 2021 Wednesday N: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.865 per gallon, $3.573 in Hawaii, and $3.292 in Washington state.  Time for ALL Red States and portions of states to secede from the Communist States of America.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,062,551,889,135 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.   
  99. 2021 Wednesday O: It’s official- the GOP of Alaska has censured Senator Lisa Murkowski and have told her they don’t even want her identifying as a Republican in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Meanwhile the U.S. Senate confirms Katherine Tai as the- wait for it- the first woman of color (whoopie do!) to be U.S. Trade Chief.   Next, the Biden administration is concerned that ‘homegrown extremists in the United States are soon going to be launching attacks against the government and the people.’  Yeah, sure.  Moving on, Chris Salcedo reports that the U.S. military is indeed going to lower its standards for purposes of inclusivity.  Maybe the Chi-Coms should nuke US?  Either that or the jihadists need to take charge.  The numbers of people they will be throwing off high towers will be in the millions.  LOL.  Speaking of the U.S. military, Salcedo reports that the Biden administration wants to purge the fighting forces of ALL pro-America patriots.   Finally, incredibly low IQ talk show TV host Joy Behar says that ‘Antifa is not a real thing, that it doesn’t exist.’  Stupid bi**h.
  100. 2021 Wednesday P: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3543 with a $30 million up for grabs: 10, 13, 19, 22, 46, and Mega 10.  Out of 116,568 winning tickets, ONE person had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $38,929.  The winning ticket was sold at a Fast & Easy in Hayward, CA 94541.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Drawing #829 with a $200 million jackpot on the line tonight: 34, 38, 42, 61, 62, and Powerball 19.  Out of 80,698 winning tickets, the highest winners was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $45,065.
  101. 2021 Wednesday Q: In other interesting news for the night, 31-year-old Paul Murray of San Antonio, Texas, underwent arrest earlier this evening by Secret Service agents and Washington, D.C. police.  He was lurking around Vice President Kamala Harris’ mansion, the Naval Observatory.  He had several guns in his automobile and could not explain his reason for being there.   Next, feminist author Naomi Wolf, author of “The End of America” has been banned from Twitter for having guested on the Tucker Carlson Show on Fox News Channel.
  102. 2022 Thursday: We’re undergoing changes.

[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 a group of interconnected venerable British rock bands as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership, so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iv] 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 pleasure.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[vi] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too.

[vii] We hope to share the music of Smashing Pumpkins with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock and/or modern psychedelic rock bands.

[viii] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog, so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

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

[x] If we are still here in 20 years, we most likely will be doing Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Poison, and all the rest of the crazy bands but you can bet we will never do the music of Maroon Five.

[xi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[xii] We most assuredly do (well, most of us) who want to see military installations installed, minefields, antipersonnel and antivehicle obstacles and pits created as well electrified fencing, anti-tunneling measures, foo gas pits, even seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups brought from the southeaster portion of the country.  We also would love to see predator drones overhead and open bounties placed on the heads of human traffickers and facilitators and long prison sentences for those apprehended in northern Alaska.  Child traffickers should be executed on the spot with lead to the back of the head.

[xiii] We’re sorry, this bitch is a dingbat, and she needs to awaken her mind from the liberal prison into which, SHE placed it when she joined the left.

68. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, MARCH 09, 2022

2021 Tuesday J: The IAEA says Iran continues breaking all restrictions the 2015 nuclear deal imposed on Iran, yet Joe Biden is giving them billions of dollars. Why? Most likely because they are wetting their beaks in the money pot. Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms are working at passing a new law (yeah, right- just pass it) that will prohibit dissenters in Hong Kong from EVER holding political office. How soon before Democrats try to do that here?

  79. 2021 Tuesday A: Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the schmendrick is giving the Iranians $3 billion to re-jumpstart the Iran nuclear deal.  Have we not been down this road before what with President Barack Hussein Obama dumping $150 billion in various currencies on the tarmac in Tehran as well as handing the Israel-hating mullahs another $1.5 billion in cold hard cash?  WTF is going on here.   Add to this the fact that senile old Joe is adding the LGBTQIA+++ movement to the International Women’s Day tells one all they need to know.  This guy is a mouth-breathing old coot, playing to the liberal choir.  God help us.
  80. 2021 Tuesday B: NOAA announces that this past February was the coldest in the past 30 years.  Of course, this means nothing to the liberals because it’s no longer about ‘global warming’ or ‘climate change’ but EXTREME WEATHER which allows the nutty left to add anything they wish to the proven facts.  “Oi vie, extreme weather, run for the hills!’  In other fascinating news, Unilever is removing the word ‘normal’ from all packaging so as NOT to offend ‘abnormal folks’ (apparently). 
  81. 2021 Tuesday C:  Longtime federal worker Michael Barr appears to be losing out on his bid to become the head of the Office of Comptroller of the Currency.  Joe Biden nominated Barr for this position, but younger Democrats are unhappy that during his time in the Obama administration and while working with Timothy Geithner he was too soft on BIG BANKS.  Of course, one can NEVER be too soft on BIG BANKS and work in modern Democratic administrations.  The young liberal whippersnappers no longer have awe of people who worked in the Obama-Biden administration, they want someone with the steely eyes of Vladimir Lenin, the heartless determination of Josef Stalin, and the cold-bloodedness of Mao Zedong.  Mr. Barr fits none of those qualifications.
  82. 2021 Tuesday D: Following the sniveling interview of Mr. and Mrs. Meghan Markle and Oprah Winfrey this past Sunday, the British Royal Family issued a terse abbreviated statement.  ‘We still love you guys and will look into your complaints.’  Meanwhile, Meghan’s pop says the ‘British Royal Family is not racist.’  What is it with young crybaby liberals, crying and sniveling about race all the time?  It’s like wah-wah-wah, STFU NOW.  (Note- Harry, you still have time to go home and atone for making the biggest mistake of your life- marrying this dimwit with a chip on each shoulder).
  83. 2021 Tuesday E: Maui County authorities are ordering residents living near the Kaupakalua Dam to begin relocating elsewhere as heavy rains are threatening a collapse of the structure.   Elsewhere, the South Dakota House of Representatives halts impeachment proceedings against the state’s Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg over an automobile accident in which he played a role.   Meanwhile, Vermont socialist Senator Bernie Sanders blasts the people of California for seeking to recall Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Mind your own business, Bernie.[x]   Finally, Congressman Tom Malinowski, D-NJ 7th congressional district, is hit with at least two ethics complaints for failing to report stock trades of more than half-a-million dollars.  What is it with Dems from the Garden State? 
  84. 2021 Tuesday F: The Centers for Disease Control reports that HALF the people hospitalized for the old Chi-Vi, aka the ‘VID, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, were obese.  The CDC also is getting slammed for its ‘study’ of masks, their efficacy, and their final results over flawed methodology used in the matter.    In the same vein, the Smithsonian adds a vial from the first batch of COVID-19 vaccines to its collections.  Boy, we want to see that exhibit.  Elsewhere, Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says, ‘don’t believe online stories saying black churches are getting hundreds of thousands of black folks vaccinated.’  She says, ‘NO black church will ever encourage black folks to do something WHITE liberals are encouraging them to do.  It never works out well for us’ is what she says.  She wants to wait and see…
  85. 2021 Tuesday G: The Biden Department of Defense (DOD) may cancel a contract with Microsoft over its litigation with Amazon.  Speaking of Amazon, the thanks they get for providing vast numbers of supplies to a COVID-19-stricken world is a GLOBAL WEALTH TAX heading their way thanks to Democrat lawmakers.  Wow.   In other ‘Joe Biden news,’ Joe Biden is preparing to welcome the Japanese prime minister, Suga Yoshihide, to the White House in the new administration’s first official state visit.  This should be fun.  Speaking of drooling Joe, his dogs had to leave the White House and return to Delaware after one of them biting someone in the White House.  In other Joe Biden news, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki channels her inner ‘Sgt. Schultz’ from Hogan’s Heroes: “I know nothing about the president’s brother, Jim, being feted by Turkish businessmen.”[xi]  Sure.  Sure, you don’t.   The Biden administration also drops a dispute over Donald J. Trump’s immigration orders, even as chaos continues to destabilize the southern border as the illegal alien invasion continues unabated.   Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, a recent Rasmussen poll says that ‘fifty percent of America’s voters believe Old Joe is UNFIT for duty.’  Time for this guy to move into a New York State nursing home.  Ooops, did we just say that?
  86. 2021 Tuesday H: Speaking of New York, a sixth woman steps forward and points a #MeToo finger at crumbling Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the “Love Gov” for being the handsy fellow that he is.  Governor Cuomo says he’s not going to go even as a cacophony of lawmakers on BOTH sides of the aisle are demanding he go.  The old mobbed-up governor has called lawmakers begging them- begging them– to please stop with calls for his resignation.  Note- Governor Cuomo, the longer you fight the tide, the worse the end results are going to be.  LEAVE OFFICE NOW.  Otherwise, we hope to see you in prison you careless, heartless prick.
  87. 2021 Tuesday I: The task force led by retired U.S. Army general and proclaimed LEFTIST General Russell A. Honoré says that a ‘quick action deployment force of National Guard troops and additional Capitol Hill police officers must be on hand at ALL TIMES to guard the nation’s capital and its Democratic lawmakers.’  We used to have respect for General Honoré whereas now, we see him for the POS authoritarian thug he is.  Next, the Biden administration says that ‘ALL Muslims prevented from entering the country while Donald Trump was president now can reapply for visas.’  Thanks, Joe.  Moving on, the Joe Biden PORKULUS wants to bestow $6 billion on the USPS so they can move to all electric vehicles.   Elsewhere, the GOP says there is a massive donations surge even after corporations SEVERED donations to the Grand Old Party following the left-wing Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021.  Speaking of the riots, the QAnon shaman will remain in prison awaiting trial because he is ‘just too dangerous to allow to walk the streets.’  Sounds like they’re doing to him what the Obama-Biden administration did to Nakoula Bassely Nakoula, the man they blamed for causing the attack on U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012.   They blamed his 20-minute video critical of the ‘Prophet of ALL Islam’ for setting in motion the events that killed four Americans.  We feel bad for you, QAnon shaman.
  88. 2021 Tuesday J: The IAEA says Iran continues breaking all restrictions the 2015 nuclear deal imposed on Iran, yet Joe Biden is giving them billions of dollars.  Why?  Most likely because they are wetting their beaks in the money pot.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms are working at passing a new law (yeah, right- just pass it) that will prohibit dissenters in Hong Kong from EVER holding political office.  How soon before Democrats try to do that here?  We expect before November 2022 rolls around. 
  89. 2021 Tuesday K: We hear that Michelle Obama is going to be inducted into the Women’s Hall of Fame.  Woo-oo.  Meanwhile, on Rush Limbaugh’s death certificate, he is listed as the ‘world’s greatest talk show host.’  Congratulations, Rush.   Elsewhere, House Republicans DEMAND the Democrats make available Newsmax and other conservative news channels to be shown on House televisions.   Next, a noted Marvel films director James Gunn blasts the Cancel Culture for being the scumbag operation that it is, even though Disney Films fired him for tweets he made decades ago.  You know, folks, no one is as clean as the left wants them to be and you can expect that unless we hold the Cancel Culture down and hold a bowel movement over their cringing face, these punks aren’t going away anytime soon.  Time to begin taking names and kicking ass.  Finally, Boulder, Colorado law enforcement are searching for suspects who attacked cops outside the local university. 
  90. 2021 Tuesday L: In other news, Representative Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district,’ says, ‘it’s easier to cross the southern border than to tour the United States Capitol.’  Go figure, congressman, go figure.  Elsewhere, U.S. airlines continue to resist CDC suggestions that vaccinated people refrain from air travel.  WTF?  Is this not the entire purpose of getting these flipping shots?   Meanwhile, Piers Morgan quits talk show, “Good Morning Britain,” after he made some comments about Meghan Markle.  So, flipping what?  Everyone needs to stop tiptoeing around this loser.  She needs to seek professional help and get her life back on track rather than being a perpetual whiner.  If she were white, people would be laughing at her.[xii]  Oh- Black Lives Matter has called for a “BOYCOTT” of the royal family.  Oh, really?  Finally, President Donald J. Trump requests an absentee voting ballot in Florida.   Oh, the president also sent out a message telling the Republicans to STOP funding the RINOs.
  91. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 117,286,481 confirmed cases, +436,870, 2,602,922, confirmed deaths, +9,692, and 66,414,419 confirmed recoveries, +331,999.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,337,446 confirmed cases, up 44,356 from yesterday’s reporting, 531,398 confirmed deaths, UP 784, and 113,406,043 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 202,921 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.   (Note- the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘high school students will get their shots for the Hubei Hooey soon and that they will be back in school by the fall.’  We hate to have to deal with those disciplinary problems, folks).
  92. 2021 Tuesday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,603,863 confirmed cases, 54,402 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,798 confirmed cases, 445 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 348,434 confirmed cases, 5,129 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- West Virginia: currently, they have 133,856 confirmed cases, 2,326 confirmed deaths, BUT NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 805,116 confirmed cases, 5,917 confirmed deaths, and 761,358 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Iran, land of homegrown jihadists: 1,698,005 cases of the old Chi-Com virus, 60,786 confirmed deaths, and 1,449,350 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, how about their numbers: 89,994 confirmed cases (our sources in Hong Kong say multiply everything by 75,000-percent and add the numbers for a total of 67,585,494 confirmed cases, 3,481,636 confirmed deaths, and 63,966,425 confirmed recoveries- and remember- these are still low-end numbers.
  93. 2021 Tuesday O: the markets are up because of the impending dump of $1.9 trillion into the U.S. economy- it’s artificial, the collapse is still coming.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,832.74, UP 30.30 points (+0.095%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,073.83, UP 464.66 points (+3.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,875.44, UP 54.09 points (+1.42%).  The price of GOLD is $1,714.10 per troy oz., -2.80 (-0.16%) while the price of SILVER is $26.02 per troy ounce, -0.16 (-0.62%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,173.50 per troy oz, -1.90 (-0.16%) while the price of COPPER is $4.01 per pound, 0.00 (+0.11%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,292.20 per troy oz, -22.00 (-0.95%) Same as yesterday.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.82 per barrel, -0.19 (-0.30%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.19.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Afghan Afghani, one greenback equals 77.40.  NOTE- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.80 per gallon, unheard of while Donald J. Trump was in the White House.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.
  94. 2021 Tuesday P: Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson signs a near-total abortion bill into law.  Another feather into the fight to crush the PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT.  Next, Governor Greg Abbot of Texas says the ‘Biden White House is doing NOTHING regarding its recent border warnings.’  Governor, we will have to defend our own borders.  In other news, alarms are being raised over nursing home deaths in Michigan (Governor Gretchen Whitmer, D), Pennsylvania (Governor Tom Wolf, D), and New Jersey (Governor Phil Murphy, D) and subsequent coverups to hide those deaths.  We believe Democrats did this for one reason and one reason only: to alleviate the senior citizens who require more resources from government than they contribute to society.  This is rather similar to what the Nazis were doing in the 1930s.  Shame on these people.
  95. 2021 Tuesday Q: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1640 with a $68 million jackpot up for the taking.  Here are the numbers: 04, 33, 46, 58, 65, and Mega 13.  Out of 59,542 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $7,306 apiece.
  96. 2022 Wednesday: Here we are- Day 413 of the Biden Administration, all kinds of left-wing orders are moving through Congress and across his Oval Office desk.  Every day, the man is selling us out to the Chi-Coms.  What the hell are we going to do?  Stick around and find out along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The end was rapidly approaching the Band which is why we have today’s final studio album- until their reformation sans Robbie Robertson a decade and a half or so later- and is composed mostly of outtakes from earlier albums.  Whether recorded and released because of contractual obligations or just to clear the decks, “Islands” came out on March 15, 1977, and featured 10 tunes, mostly penned by Robbie Robertson but with input from fellow members as well as one or two covers.  The lineup remains the same and would suffice until their resurrection in 1993.  We think you will enjoy this album as an endcap to their career but don’t shed tears- a glorious live album is soon to come- “The Last Waltz” which shows things as they most certainly should have been all the time.  Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY MARCH 09, 2022, BLOG POST #4,478

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

Tuesday, March 09, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

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

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


Wednesday, March 09, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of Paul Revere and the Raiders but when we do, you will be among the first to know so please, remain attentive for that day.  We thank you.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed as well as his band mate, John Cale.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

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

[iv] We promoted the music of Blossom Toes beginning on Monday, 01-June-2015 through Sunday, 07-June-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your growing music collection.

[v] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalogue, so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

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

[vii] We are hoping to begin doing the music of the Move, the Electric Light Orchestra, and Roy Wood’s Wizzard sometime in 2020, possibly 2021.  We hope you will remain vigilant so you won’t miss them.  We will keep everyone posted.

[viii] In 2020, Democrats are sobbing over how President Donald J. Trump is overturning President Barack Obama’s ‘accomplishments.’  Well, here we have an example of President Obama overturning one of President George W. Bush’s accomplishments, a significant one at that.  It is what it is.

[ix] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of Boston but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[x] The number of signatures to remove Gavin Newsom is over 2 million now as Golden State voters swamp booths out in front of grocery stores where they can add their signatures to the recall effort.

[xi] Yet, everyone in Turkey and Greece are talking about the mingling of Jim Biden and Turkish financial shakers and movers.

[xii] Yeah, go ahead and cancel us, we play by our own flipping rules.  Wah-wah-wah!

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES, GOD BLESS UKRAINE, AND OTHER COUNTRIES THREATENED BY AUTHORITARIAN REGIMES…

67. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 08, 2022

2021 Monday J: In other fascinating news, Iran threatens to RAZE Tel Aviv if Israel should attack the ‘peace-loving Islamic Republic of Iran.’ We say, NUKE the hell out of Iran- give them something to suck on in the same way that President Ronald Reagan ordered the sinking of most of their pathetic navy back in the early 1980s.

  89. 2021 Monday C: Speaking of Cuomo killing the state’s nursing home residents, former three-term Governor George Pataki, R-NY, says what Cuomo did to nursing home inmates is ‘beyond the pale’ and ‘highly criminal.’   Heck, even the New York Senate’s majority leader- Andrea Stewart-Cousins- says the guy must go and that person is a Democrat.  NOTE- we are now seeing Harvey Weinstein-like behavior as Gov. Cuomo is trying to ‘buy’ his way to ‘freedom:’ today, he floated the idea of raising taxes on wealthy New Yorkers even though his state has received $12.58 billion in federal COVID-19 money.  This is what libs do when they are in trouble- promise to jack wealthy people in their state, promise to fight for abortion at all stages of gestation and even after birth, and to crush the NRA.  Let us see what he does next.

  94. 2021 Monday H: What else is happening today- the 80th Annual Daytona Beach Bike Week kicks off today.  Next, NBA star Kobe Bryant’s rookie card sells for a cool $1.8 million.  Next, the billionaire ex-wife of Amazon business mogul Jeff Bezos- Mackenzie Scott- marries a high school teacher.  Good for him.  Moving on, famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz asks the extremely important question of the Cancel Culture- ‘Why stop with Dr. Seuss?’  Speaking of the Cancel Culture, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, says the real goal behind the “CC” is to drive people into SELF-CENSORSHIP- something free Americans will NEVER submit to, NEVER.

  100. 2021 Monday N: Greg Kelly reports on Newsmax that Pepe Le Pew, the “Joe Biden of cartoon characters” because of all his hands-on the female character is now CANCELED, too. Meanwhile, the White House praises the courage of Megan Markle and the individual formerly known as “Prince Harry” for sobbing their story to Oprah Winfrey.  Folks, who the f**k cares?  Hopefully, Harry will recognize his mistake sooner while there is still time to repair the self-inflicted damage than later when the royal family will never welcome him back in.  Megan sobbed that the royals worried about the color of baby Archie.  Uh, again, who cares?  Oprah don’t act so flipping shocked, you has-been.  In other news, the family of Ashli Babbitt, slain at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, by a Capitol Hill police officer for still unknown reasons is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the department.   Next, Joe Biden grants temporary immigration status to Venezuelans who have fled their country for the U.S.  Finally, JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO GIVE A PRIME TIME ADDRESS THIS THURSDAY!  Glory, glory hallelujah, glory,  glory hallelujah, glory, glory hallelujah, the world is going to hear the mummy speak!  
  101. 2021 Monday O: On this spectacular 110th International Day of Women (except in crap-hole nations such as Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan), Burger King UK tweets out the following statement: “women belong in the kitchen.”  Ooops.  Must have been a joke. Speaking of jokes, the U.S. State Department has zipped its lips and won’t accuse the Chi-Coms of committing mass genocide against the Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Province.  The State Department is also tiptoeing around the fact that the Chi-Coms are not honoring their commitment to a half-century of incorporation of Hong Kong- former British crown colony- by seeking to corrupt their voting system so that it resembles the authoritarian system on the mainland.  FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Macao!  FREE Tibet!  FREE Mainland China!  NO MORE COMMUNISM! 
  102. 2021 Monday P: General Russell Honoré concludes his report into the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the good (left-wing) general announces that the Capitol Police Department must have greater authority in times of crisis.  Uh, okay.  Will the increased power allow us to demilitarize our nation’s capital?  Meanwhile, Georgia state lawmakers present a bill that will terminate NO-EXCUSE absentee voting.  The Democrats won’t like this.  Still, if state government won’t enforce the state’s voting laws, what difference does it make?   
  103. 2021 Monday Q: Two of Joe Biden’s picks for top posts in the U.S. Department of Justice promise to rain hell down upon the evildoers behind Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-instigated-and-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Lisa Monaco- nominated to be U.S. Deputy Attorney General and Vanita Gupta- nominated to be Associate Attorney General promise to go after and crush the people threatening our democracy.  Both proclaim to keep the U.S. Department of Justice nonpartisan while assumed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland says, ‘Donald Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud are bogus.’  Meanwhile, Joe Biden isn’t budging from his desire to keep the ‘filibuster in place’ even as the rest of his party seeks to overturn it and to ram through all their crazy leftist bull crap ideas.  In other news, liberals are rubbing their hands in glee having heard that an investigation into ‘citizen Donald Trump’ is underway to investigate his claims the 2020 Presidential Election were rigged.  The Democrats can’t let go.
  104. 2022 Tuesday: Day 412 of the Biden Administration- stick around and discover what sort of antics the Chi-Coms and their imposed stooges in the Biden administration are up to today.  It’s going to be good!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The only American in the Band- Levon Helm- struck out on his own for a brief period while the Band was in somewhat of a hiatus.  Thus, he formed his own group which subsequently released the album, “Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars” on April 15, 1977.  Of the 10 songs on the disc, most of them were covers which is cool because we have a wide range of musical influences here.  The band was more of an orchestra what with Levon Helm (lead and backing vocals/drums), the great Paul Butterfield (harmonicas), Steve “The Colonel” Cropper and Fred Carter Jr. (guitars), Booker T. Jones (keyboards and percussion), the “Night Tripper” aka Mac Rebennack (keyboards and gris-gris), Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass), a horn sections, strings, a conductor, and guest appearances by fellow Band mates Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson.  We love the album, particularly the Chuck Berry cover of “Havana Moon,” which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.  At Amazon, you can pick it up for less than $25 so what the heck?  Seek it out now…

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY MARCH 08, 2022, BLOG POST #4,476

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

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

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


Tuesday, March 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

[ii] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[iii] See previous.

[iv] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time however, we overlooked presenting the music of the group’s individual members- Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Welch, Lindsay Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.  We hope to do that at some point in the near future.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[v] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[vi] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Jimi Hendrix on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Please check the albums out, you will enjoy them.

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

[ix] New York State Attorney General announced the names of the team investigating the handsy governor today.  Godspeed folks.

[x] Why are we celebrating International Women’s Day?  It’s a flipping joke when liberals want trannys to play in girls’ sports.  There is no reason to celebrate a day such as this until the Western World regains its senses.  We believe- if you want to celebrate trannys- a third category of scholastic sports should be created- tranny sports.  Let’s do that.  Then, we can celebrate International Women’s Day.

[xi] Speaking of Treasury Secretary Yellen, reports suggest she is AWOL from office.  Left-wing news channels and online sites remain mum on her whereabouts or what she might be up to while center and center-right news sites are raising questions about the aged old gal.  We would like to know ourselves. 

[xii] In a similar note- all charges pending for Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend- the target of the police raid that killed Ms. Taylor- have been dropped.   Likewise, in other connected news, the mother of Eric Garner warns that the cops will assassinate the character of the victim, meaning that the Minneapolis P.D. will point out the fact that Floyd was a thug and that he was doped up and overdosing the day of his death.  Just saying.  Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax says the prosecution will be unable to obtain a conviction of 2nd Degree Homicide because of the fact they cannot prove that Officer Chauvin was the cause of Floyd’s death.  The cause of Floyd’s death was DRUGS, primarily fentanyl but other drugs as well. 

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES, GOD BLESS UKRAINE, AND OTHER COUNTRIES THREATENED BY AUTHORITARIAN REGIMES…
