  59. 2014 Monday: “Nymphaea,” a painting in Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” series, is auctioned today for a price of $54 million; this is only the second-highest price paid for a Monet – another painting in the series sold in 2008 for $80.3 million at auction.
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Amazon.com joins the bandwagon against the Confederate flag following the shooting committed by Dylann Storm Roof the previous week.  Although many Americans see, the flag as part of the nation’s history—from the Civil War—many among the American people see it as a symbol of racism and want it removed.  Elsewhere, NASA’s Mars Odyssey completed its 60,000th orbit around the Red Planet.  The spacecraft entered orbit around the fourth planet from the Sun on October 23, 2001.
  61. 2016 Thursday: On this date, the people of Great Britain flock to the polls to vote in the Brexit Referendum.  The majority of Brits vote to leave the corrupt European Union which sets in motion near-constant problems among younger Brits who don’t want to go and with the EU who wants them to stay no matter what.

  64. 2019 Sunday: Upset Czechs, numbering around 250,000 take to the streets- not for a Black Lives Matter protest but because they are angry at the nation’s Prime Minister Andrej Babis.  The protest occurs in Letna Plain Park and is the biggest public protest since the days when the communists ruled the country.  Elsewhere, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan stepped down from his position on this date.  A member of NO political party, he served under President Donald J. Trump from January 01,2019 until today.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: The FBI announces that the rope- not calling it a NOOSE- found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage has been there since last October.  Since the garage assignments were only made recently, they cast doubt on the ‘act’ being deliberate.  We will keep the readership posted.  UPDATE ON PREVIOUS STORY: HATE CRIME HOAX.  Next, the European Union says it ‘may ban Americans from visiting Europe’ over COVID-19 concerns.  Okay.  Finally, President Trump visits the southern border to celebrate more than 200 miles of new border wall going up and the fact that numbers of illegal aliens attempting to cross is down by 86-percent.  At a Students for Trump rally in Arizona, it is clear the president has loads of support.

Currently, Joe is shy 159,371 deaths

  74. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 92 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, to be in charge of the border and yet to have shown up for a single day’s work.  Still, a new pronouncement says that “Kooky Kamala” is going to tour the border this Friday so she can see the mayhem for herself.  Of course, this comes after last week’s announcement by President Donald J. Trump and Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, that the pair would tour the border next Wednesday, June 30, with at least 12-15 other Republicans.  President Trump says- and rightfully so- that ‘Kooky Kamala Harris would NEVER have visited the southern border IF Trump had not announced that he was going.’  Amen.  In other border calamity news, the Biden regime is going to give illegal aliens who failed to show up for their ASYLUM HEARINGS a second bite at the apple by welcoming deportees back to try again.  F**king Joe.
  75. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the numbers from One America News that shows both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens as well as the magnitude of this unnecessary disaster: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the Illegal Aliens $529,629,760.  (2) Total Amount this Year of caring for Illegal Aliens: $190,118,690,816.  (3) Total number of illegal aliens who have crossed in 2021: 1,948,564.  Finally, (4) Total ESTIMATED number of illegals in the United States: 35,948,564.[xvii]  (Note- we have estimated since the inception of this blog that there were between 35-and-50 million illegals in the United States- back in 2009, no less- whereas now, we believe we have 75-100 million illegals in the United States and the numbers only continue growing.  Time to call in pest control services).
  76. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– A Russian warship fired warning shots at a Royal Navy vessel transiting the Black Sea.   Meanwhile, the Intel community prophesies that the Afghan government could ‘topple’ within months of the U.S. pullout.  Folks, we have been there more than 20 frigging years and if the SOBs are not prepared by now to fight their own war, then it demonstrates the entire thing was a waste of resources and lives.   Elsewhere, reports have arisen saying that Russian naval vessels have approached within 2 dozen miles off the coast of various Hawaiian islands as they continue pushing the bounds and gathering intelligence.  What is clear is that NO one fears the ‘slobberer-in-chief,’ “Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden sitting in the White House basement spanking his wank.  (Like son, like father, we guess).  (Note- we expect that a new Axis of Russia, the Chi-Coms, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and second- and third-line allies of these nations will soon launch actions across the world because “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to do NOTHING in response.  We mean, why would they not?  It’s open hunting season against the U.S.)
  77. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– USC and the Rand Corp. show the results of a recent study that excessive lockdowns and restrictions related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis caused more problems than they helped.  Of course, the libs have no desire to hear this but it’s true- depression, emotional issues, alcohol and drug abuse, apathy and suicide went up, up, and UP.  Elsewhere, 153 staff members of a Methodist hospital in Houston have either been fired or been forced to resign over their refusal to take the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  Stand strong, people, stand strong.  Next, further reinforcing the beliefs of millions of Americans that the vaccines are either unnecessary or dangerous or both, the malevolent little dwarf, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci rushes out to claim the ‘Delta variant of the Chi-Vi is deadly but getting one of the vaccinations will protect one from its ravages.’  Right on time there, “Phony Tony.”  (Note- when is this lying POS going to be fired?  His time is up, folks).
  78. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that Joe Biden should have pressed the Chin harder over answers as to the origins of the China Virus.  Good for you, senator.   Next, regarding the evil ‘Delta variant’ of the Xi Jinping Pox, health authorities are telling us that both AstraZeneca and Pfizer are effective at combatting this new, fearsome variant from the Wuhan Bat Lab.  In other Chi-Com Virus news, the U.S. government seized an unauthorized shipment of Chairman Xi Kung Flu vaccines heading to Mexico.
  79. 2021 Wednesday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News-Oregon County officials have visited the ongoing Arizona 2020 Election audit so they can possibly replicate it in their counties.   Next, Michigan Republicans want to replicate an Arizona-style election audit in their state.  We say, “Go for it!”
  80. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden News– Slobbering Joe Biden blames young people for sabotaging his efforts to get 70-percent of the American people vaccinated with one of the Chi-Vi vaccines roaming the land.  The more information that continues coming to light showing numerous adverse effects- especially on young people- the less people are inclined to get the shots.  NO MORE, JOE!  Meanwhile, Joe Biden nominates Cindy McCain to a U.N. post- the Food and Agriculture post, an ambassador-level position.
  81. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Twenty-two GOP state attorneys general are fighting to protect the Hyde Amendment from rampaging Democrats who want to blacken everyone’s soul by using taxpayer dollars to fund the PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT.  God bless them.   Next, the National Security Agency- the NSA- is reaching out to the private sector to help them combat hackers.  Speaking of hackers, esteemed (yeah, right) FBI boss Christopher Wray is encouraging hacked businesses not to pay the hackers ransoms.  Okay, what can they do?  What is the FBI doing on behalf of American businesses? 
  82. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– In New York City’s mayoral race, candidate Adams widens lead over nearest competitors Wiley and Garcia while Andrew Yang throws in the towel.  Sorry, Andrew, it appears you are as electable as is Robert Francis “Beto the Bullshitter” O’Rourke.  Maybe you should return to Taiwan?   In other political news, a majority of Republican voters say that ‘Critical Race Theory is a definite danger to the republic as founded.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis has signed a new bill forcing colleges and universities to teach the EVILS of communism to their students.  About damned time. 
  83. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Next week, we hear that the United States and the communist Chin are holding some sort of talks.   Next, political genius Dick Morris says that ‘Donald J. Trump is confident that the media will break its silence on the election audits.’  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley says it’s time to hire 100,000 new police officers to combat the rising crime wave.  Amen.  Elsewhere, a new Rasmussen poll says that 41-percent of the American people do not believe that Joe Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election ‘fair and square.’  NO one we know does.  The guy bragged about having the largest voter theft organization in the history of the country.  Time to remove him from office.  Meanwhile, as Georgia Democrats continue screeching and wailing about the clean-up of the voter rolls in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, says that his government is following federal law ad it cleans up its voting rolls.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News IV– RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘let’s concentrate on winning 2022 before we begin worrying about 2024.’  Amen.   Next, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that ‘without an increase in the debt ceiling, the United States could default on its debts by early August.’  This would collapse the country.  Jesus Christ, folks, the spiral of debt continues spinning like the spinning wheel spins (so sang Blood, Sweat & Tears back in the early 1970s).
  85. 2021 Wednesday Q:  U.S. Supreme Court News– The U.S. Supreme Court in an 8-1 decision handed the foul-mouthed cheerleader a big win today reaffirming the rights of Americans to freedom of speech.
  86. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s up to his old tricks once again babbling on about how he is going to do something about gun violence.  He goes after lawful gun owners while giving thugs and gangbangers a pass on shooting one another in the streets.   What a loser.  Next, a new poll says that 56-percent of the American people do not support the Biden regime’s screwed up handling of the Israeli-Palestinian issue.  We believe that’s true.  Most Americans want to see the Palestinians obliterated off the face of the globe so the entire Middle East could enjoy an extended peace.  It’s clear that Joe Biden loves the Palestinian Untermensch. (Note- must be money going into Joe’s back pocket somewhere in the money-go-round).
  87. 2021 Wednesday S: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Joe Biden regime is launching a new campaign to go after ‘devious and crooked’ gun dealers whom they believe are selling guns out the backdoor to criminals and others who cannot own them.  Joe wants to take guns away from law-abiding criminals while doing nothing to go after criminals who misuse stolen guns to commit heinous crimes.  Once again, we have yet another prime example of how the people ‘elected’ to lead us hate our guts.  Joe says the Second Amendment does not permit the ownership of cannons and other weapons but if you read the amendment, it does not specify what types of weapons one can own.  We favor constitutional carry and have taken great pains to make sure when the “Joestapo” shows up at the door, they won’t find our guns.  F**k them.
  88. 2021 Wednesday T:  Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The Pentagon rejects the charge that the U.S. military has gone WOKE.  By saying they have ‘not gone WOKE’ when everyone knows they have demonstrated beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Pentagon has drunk long and deep from the well of toxic WOKE Kool-Aid.  Not a suitable time to enlist in the military folks.  We will wait until President Donald J. Trump returns to the White House, hopefully soon.   Elsewhere, a Loudoun County school board meeting in Virginia goes all to hell as people protesting the gender insanity being forced on their kids get hauled away in handcuffs to the hoosegow including parent Jon Tigges who came on the Tucker Carlson program on Fox News Channel.   The fuzz declared the meeting attended by hundreds of American patriots an ‘unlawful assembly’ and waded into the midst of the attendees, fighting with people who most likely have been BIG SUPPORTERS of the cops up until now.  Look for that to change.   Finally, as the LGBTQIA+ Nazis continue demanding we pay attention to the pronouns preferred by all the snowflakes and twinkies out there, let’s just call everyone, “Comrade.”  Is that acceptable?
  89. 2021 Wednesday U: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin to be sentenced this Friday.  Everyone expects him to be sent away for 30 years.  We expect him to get a retrial, especially as how the judge allowed corrupt individuals onto the jury and that insane racist skank, Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd congressional district, went to Minneapolis the weekend prior to the verdict coming in and ginned up the threat of violence IF the jury acquitted Officer Chauvin.  “Prune Face” should be doing time in a federal slammer for jury tampering.
  90. 2021 Wednesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, has put forth a bill censuring the slobberer-in-chief, Joe Biden, over his criminal mishandling of the crisis along the southern border. 
  91. 2021 Wednesday W: U.S. Senate News– The U.S. Senate GOP successfully smacked down H.R. 1, aka S. 1- the “For the People Act” aka the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” via a unified stance.  This is great because it would allow the Democrats to federalize the system of elections that would be little more than a blatant power grab.[xviii]
  92. 2021 Wednesday X: Maryland State News–  Former DNC bigwig Tom Perez, DS, has thrown his hat into the ring for governor of the Old-Line State.  Wow.  This guy is nothing more than a political hack much like the Clinton bagman, Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe, who is trying to become the governor of Virginia again.
  93. 2021 Wednesday Y: Sports News– Organizers for the upcoming 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo announced today that they are banning alcohol sales and prohibiting fans from getting autographs from their favorite Olympians.  Next, defensive lineman for the Las Vegas Raiders Carl Nassib comes out as the first active openly gay player in the NFL.  Big whoop, he will be taking showers by himself from this point henceforth.  At least Michael Sam had to go to Canada to play and up there, he didn’t last long.  We expect Nassib will be out of the league within a year or two.
  94. 2021 Wednesday Z: Observation of the Day– This segment segues in perfectly.  All this talk about trannys- chicks with dicks– competing in the Olympics is insane just as it is for every other level of sports.  IF women must compete with sick boys claiming to be girls (like that ‘looker’ from New Zealand, the weightlifter), girls should be allowed to ‘dope.’  If they can dope, then they can stand an even chance at defeating this emotionally mixed-up boys; otherwise, it’s time to create a third category of sports- TRANNY SPORTS.  We have the ‘Special Olympics,’ let’s have the “Tranny Olympics.”  I bet more people would watch the ‘Tranny Olympics’ because who doesn’t like watching a good carnival freak show?  We know we do.
  95. 2021 Wednesday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Super Lotto Draw #3571 has a $57 million on the line tonight.  Meanwhile, the Powerball Draw #857 has a $63 million pot up for grabs so please, stick around and see the results.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 04, 09, 38, 40, 41, and Mega 25.  Out of 133,078 winning tickets, the highest winners were 25 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $983 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 13, 20, 40, 51, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 43,922 winning tickets in California, the highest winners was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,624.
  96. 2022 Thursday: Here is where we were ONE YEAR AGO TODAY when Chef Vladdie was doing the week: How soon before the new American ‘Gestapo’ (the Joestapo) shows up in the middle of the night, flashing their Nacht und Nebel badges to signify we no longer have any rights and can be arrested in the dead of darkness?  Remember: there are more than 75 million of us and it’s going to take them several years before they can accomplish the highly lampooned but equally true “Replacement Theory,” you know, the one in which American voters are replaced with a foreign-born population.  Of course, that’s just ‘QAnon shit, right?’   Stick around to uncover the events of the day along with the rest of us…then again, we probably will publish them NEXT year.

[i] 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.

[ii] 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.

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iv] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Knack but one day, we most surely will.

[xviii] So as not to appear hypocrites like Democrats always do, we have pushed for a uniform system of elections codified by a constitutional amendment that would (1) demand voter ID for all elections (2) would imprison both unqualified voters (illegal aliens, felons, and others deemed incapable of voting), (3) would end same-day voting and early voting but would expand Election Day voting hours as well as provide absentee voting for those with a need to do so.  We also believe that U.S. military across the world should be able to vote a month in advance of Election Day and that their ballots would be transferred via military custody to a national military election site in Washington, D.C., where they would then be broken down into their states, counties, and cities.  Uniformity is important so long as it is to guarantee that ALL Lawful ballots are counted and unlawful ones not.  Also, if there are any crimes like we witnessed last election cycle such as GOP observers being booted, cardboard thrown up in windows, recounting of ballots, and trucking in pristine ballots printed elsewhere, people should face 25 years in a federal prison without the hope of early release.  Dead people must not vote, illegal aliens must not vote, criminals must not vote, and electronic machines and software programs should be booted in place of paper ballots with a paper trail.  You see, Democrats CANNOT win most honest elections which is why they are always trying to thieve elections any way they can.  We posit that DEEP BLUE STATES and CITIES most likely are a deep, deep RED.

163. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JUNE 12, 2022

2009 Friday: Following ‘free elections’ in the Islamist hellhole of Iran, people protest them as being ‘unfair.’ Of all the Middle Eastern nations in which, President Barack Obama interfered during the “Green Revolutions,” Iran was the only one in which, he didn’t. Go figure.

  53. 2009 Friday: Following ‘free elections’ in the Islamist hellhole of Iran, people protest them as being ‘unfair.’  Of all the Middle Eastern nations in which, President Barack Obama interfered during the “Green Revolutions,” Iran was the only one in which, he didn’t.  Go figure.  
  54. 2010 Saturday: Hungarian food critic Egon Ronay dies at age 94.
  55. 2011 Sunday: In the NBA Finals, the Dallas Mavericks win their first NBA title by beating the Miami Heat 4 games to 2.
  56. 2012 Tuesday: An Australian coroner’s report rules that a dingo and not a person sentenced to prison was responsible for the death of a baby in 1980.   Meanwhile, Beijing-controlled World Health Organization announces that diesel exhaust causes cancer.  Go figure.
  57. 2013 Wednesday: Russia bans gay propaganda promoting the ‘alternative lifestyles of the LGBTQIA+ community’ the day before.  It goes into effect.  Good.
  58. 2014 Thursday: After terrorists kidnap three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank, the government blames the jihadist thugs of Hamas. 
  59. 2015 Friday: According to On This Day, Zimbabwe decides to end the nation’s national currency offering an exchange of 35 quadrillion Zimbabwean dollars for $1 U.S.  Hate to see the citizens bringing their money to the banks for exchange. 
  60. 2016 Sunday: In the early morning hours, local Muslim jihadist Omar Mateen, 29 years-old opens fire at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, slaying 49 people and wounding another 53 before members of the Orlando Police Department kill the POS.  Some say that Mateen himself was homosexual- something his wife denied- which was why he targeted the predominantly gay club.
  61. 2017 Monday: In Game 5 of the 2017 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors beat defending champion, the Cleveland Cavaliers by a final score of 129-120, capturing the crown for the second time in three years and avenging their loss to the Cavaliers the previous year.  The addition of Kevin Durant, aka “KD,” during the offseason helped the Warriors clinch the NBA title. 
  62. 2018 Tuesday: In Sutton, England, Jon Hiseman- famed drummer of the British rock band, Colosseum[xi]– died at age 73 on this date.  Meanwhile, the first summit meeting between U.S. President Donald J. Trump and North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un occurs.  Following its conclusion, they agree to meet again to discuss ways by which the two countries can bring peace to the Korean Peninsula.  Elsewhere, the Trump administration debuts a new 16-acre parcel of land in Taipei, Taiwan, which will become the home of ‘the American Institute in Taiwan’ which will actually be the new embassy as the U.S. moves back to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize the Chi-Coms’ criminal occupation of the mainland and the freedom-loving Chinese people of Taiwan.
  63. 2019 Wednesday: In Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals, the St. Louis Blues beat the Boston Bruins by a final score of 4-3 to win their first cup in team franchise history.  Congratulations.   Meanwhile, the Chi-Com intelligence-gathering company Huawei pulls back the launch of its laptop (what could be wrong with this?) blaming its setback on the U.S. refusal to permit Chi-Com spy devices into the U.S.  Wait another year or two if the Dems are able to somehow get Trump out of office.
  64. 2020 Friday: Leftists continue causing trouble around the country, trouble we believe is being funded by Beijing and on the ground by their Democratic Party colluders.  Shame on them.  Meanwhile, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, aka CHAZ, continues to exist, a place where robberies, rapes, and beatings are increasing exponentially. Various groups are now fighting for supremacy in there, how soon before we have outright violence, public whippings, and even executions?  Meanwhile, the Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a committed Marxist, says ‘it’s akin to the summer of love.’  Yeah, right. It is high time for the U.S. government to put both Beijing and their Democratic Party lackeys on notice that we are not going to put up with this crap.  Enough is flipping enough!  Sadly, statues across the country have been vandalized, torn down, and/or destroyed.  Not good.
  65. 2020 Friday A: Here are the statistics for the Wuhan Bat Virus Crisis, sent around the globe by communist bigwig, Xi Jinping: 7,573,699 confirmed cases, 423,155 confirmed deaths, and 3,582,269 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, here are the stats for today: 2,083,548 confirmed cases, 116,130 confirmed deaths, and 626,642 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, Golden State first: 141,983 confirmed cases, 4,943 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries; politics as usual.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 685 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 622 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in Washington, here are the stats: 24,799 confirmed cases, 1,194 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

  67. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden To Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 297,075 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 162,574 deaths

  71. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. NATIONAL Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.224 per gallon, $2.972 in Florida, $3.977 in Hawaii, and $3.615 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $2.946.  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- Guatemala: $3.625 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,397,916,923,036 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Cayman Islands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiii]
  72. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day No. 82 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in sole charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and lo and behold…she has not visited it today nor will she.  What a loser.  You know things are bad when one’s own political party- in this case, the Democrats- have no words to express how disappointed they are with her job performance.  Loser.
  73. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Communist China passes a new ‘anti-sanctions act,’ (Not sure what they mean by this?) in which they will deny visas, freeze assets, and deport into permanent internal exile anyone who criticizes their murderous, Nazi-like regime.  Go figure.  Speaking of thuggish states, Russian President Vladimir Putin- in office until 2036 (how’s that for longevity?)- says the relationship between him and his nation with the United States has drastically declined since the ‘drooler-in-chief’ “Pro-China Joe” Biden usurped the White House.
  74. 2021 Saturday H: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s earpiece has nominated Carlos Del Toro to become secretary of the United States Navy.  Speaking of the U.S. military, the GOP is pushing the Biden regime to increase national defense spending as more and more people continue pointing out the sad fact that the Chi-Coms are speedily increasing the size of their military in preparation for war with the United States.  (Note- we encourage launching a first strike on the Chi-Coms with all tools available in our arsenal while continuing to increase the size of our own to be able to contend with a war on numerous fronts).
  75. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has announce an emergency meeting so they can begin delving into the growing reports of myocarditis in mostly young men who have answered the Siren’s call to go get themselves vaccinated with a vaccine that has ONLY ‘emergency clearance,’ a vaccine in which the drug manufacturers have ‘qualified immunity’ (something they seek to strip away from cops), and a vaccine in which more than 5,000 people in the past six months have died from getting.  Various sources in the medical industry in the United States have informed us that ANY DRUG with 100 deaths or more associated with it would already be pulled from the market.  Go figure.  In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu Virus news, Rep.  Devin Nunes, R-CA 22 congressional district, continues to sound the alarm over all the secrecy surrounding the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 
  76. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump spoke out on the ‘jobless union workers who voted in lockstep for Joe Biden and now with the Keystone XL Pipeline closed, they are sitting at home drawing unemployment.’  (Note- someone should take AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka out and give him a good thrashing.  Perhaps when America’s labor unions vote for leadership again, they will go with an ‘America-first’ supporter rather than an overweight, ignorant, political hack who can’t get his nose out of the butt cracks of Democratic-Socialist hacks).
  77. 2021 Saturday K: Political News II– Far-left liberal commentator Bill Maher blasts his left-wing cronies for failing to acknowledge the progress made on racial and social fronts.  Bill generally calls them the way he sees them.  Elsewhere, at the MAGA FRANK Rally in New Richmond, Wisconsin, Diamond and Silk lambasted Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district in front of a vast crowd of American patriots, saying of this unpatriotic POS that ‘if she doesn’t love her country then she’s free to go.’  Of Joe Biden, they said ‘hell no to Jim Joe Crow Joe, that the Swamp installed him, the American people did not elect him.’ 
  78. 2021 Saturday L: Health And Medical Alerts– As if we already didn’t have enough problems with the Chi-Com lab-engineered virus running amok, our friends in England have just reported the first two cases of the highly-contagious, West African lethal disease the monkeypox.  Similar to smallpox, this disease can run amok through a population causing problems that will reverberate through said society.  Folks, this is what happens when there are NO controls on the borders or ports of entry.  It is as if various world governments are social re-engineering to alleviate the world of much of its ‘excess population.’ 
  79. 2021 Saturday M: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– Stay tuned for the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3568 with a $54 million pot on the line and also for the Powerball Draw #854 with a $31 million pot up for grabs.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto: 05, 10, 21, 22, 36, and Mega 10.  Out of 151,840 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $50,728.  The winning ticket was sold at My Goods Market #5519 in Sacramento, CA 95864.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 08, 25, 34, 38, 41, and Power 10.  Out of 43,809 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,467 apiece.
  80. 2022 Sunday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Friends, we are going to present something to you today that MANY self-proclaimed fans of the Beach Boys have slammed: “M.I.U. Album,” their next studio release that came out on September 25, 1978.  When it came out, yes, it sold poorly, was not well received but friends, we love the f**k out of this album just as we do its successor, “Light Album (L.A. Album).  Reportedly, the album was released to fulfill contractual obligations and even stranger, it was recorded in Iowa at the Maharishi International University to keep the Boys away from their West Coast drug suppliers.  Once again, we have the Wilson Brothers and Mike Love and Al Jardine along with some members of the touring band.  This album remains one of our favorites and almost every tune is a delight.  It opens with “She’s Got Rhythm,” sung by Brian whose vocals are back in fine form followed by “Come Go With Me,” sung by Al followed by “Hey, Little Tomboy,” sung by Mike and Brian.  Some fans said this tune sounded like some sort of pedophile song but we will say, it most likely was written years later so being sung by older guys is just how it is.  Great song.  Next, we get “Kona Coast,” sung by Mike and Al, followed by “Peggy Sue,” the old favorite and then “Woncha Come Out Tonight,” perhaps the low point of the album.  Side Two opens Carl’s “Sweet Sunday Kind of Love,” followed by Mike Love’s “Belles of Paris.”  Then the crème de la crème follow with the amazing, “Pitter Patter,” sung by Al and Mike, followed by Dennis’ “My Diane.”  Then, the song we believe to be the best of the best, “Match Point of Our Love,” all Brian.  Finally, the album closes out with “Winds of Change,” another Al and Mike vocal.  Folks, this is a GREAT album, screw what critics and disgruntled fans say.  This remains among our favorite albums of their catalog so please, seek it out and enjoy.  We think you will be glad you did.

161. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 202

2020 Wednesday: The left continues running amok across the United States thanks to the collusion between the Democratic Party and their communist masters in Beijing. Statues are being torn down, Antifa is taking over six-block swaths of Seattle and declaring their own independent totalitarian fiefdom. It will soon be time for the military to take to the streets and to begin cleaning up this low-life, socialist pond scum. Light ‘em up, President Trump, light ‘em up!

  73. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The president of Guatemala- Alejandro Giammattei – blames the Biden regime for the crisis at the southern border and not his country or its people.   Next, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is hosting a border crisis summit today in the Lone Star State.  Speaking of the disaster, Newsmax reports that millions of illegal aliens could pour across the southern border, a statement confirmed by former Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan.  Rep.  Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, has offered a formal invitation to “Kooky Kamala” Harris to visit the California-Mexico border as his guest.
  74. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Iran is growing bolder in its demands to rejoin the failed nuclear deal, the JCPOA.  Elsewhere, the French man who slapped President Emanuel Macron gets a four-month stretch in the hoosegow.  (Note- in the U.S., he might have languished in the jail for 6-7 years before his trial would finally occur in the courts.  Then, he might wait anywhere from 6-24 months before receiving sentence.  Maybe we should speed up our courts like the French model?)   Meanwhile, if Benjamin Netanyahu is ousted from Israeli politics, it could end up hurting relations between American evangelicals and the Jewish state.   Next, the Chi-Coms liken the hysteria over the origins of the Chi-Vi to the one swirling around ‘weapons of mass destruction and Iraq.’  Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Venezuela must turn back’ the two Iranian vessels on the way to dock in that criminal regime.
  75. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, is raising new questions about Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s ‘advice’ to ‘follow the science.’  It is clear that the “Mighty Mite” is no longer a practitioner of science so much as he is a political hack working on behalf of the left.  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the probe into the Chi-Com Bat Virus’ origins is much like the Trump-Russian Collusion probe meaning to us, it’s a political show with no real outcome expected.  Next, Moderna files for emergency use of its Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine for use in minors, ages 12-17.  However, stunning information continues to bubble up regarding the use of the Chi-Vi vaccines in young people and the accompanying rates of serious symptoms including those of myocarditis or inflammation of the heart muscle.  Yet, the Biden regime continues pushing these vaccines onto every American like the Reverend Jim Jones pushed cups of Kool-Aid onto his followers down in Jonestown, Guyana.  Friends, may we be so bold as to say what most of us think?  We believe this is social engineering at its worst.  We believe the more people that die around the globe, say, maybe 1-2 billion, that will do the global warming lovers good in cutting down the human population on the planet, something they have been hard at work accomplishing via abortion, rising crime rates, a polluted environment, increased fear, and now ‘vaccines for a lab-engineered virus in…frigging communist China?’  F*** this, NONE of us are going to take this vaccination.  (Note- now that we know hydroxychloroquine increases one’s chances of surviving this crap by 200-percent and it’s cheap, then WTF?)
  76. 2021 Thursday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– The Arizona state senate is prepared for whatever the results from the 2020 Election are.  From press conferences, we already know there are loads of problems.  Likewise, election officials in Fulton County, Georgia, are preparing to depose some of the corrupt election officials that scanned, re-scanned, and re-re-scanned stacks of ballots after sending everyone else home for the night.  We suspect once the scumbags begin facing prison time, they will begin flipping on one another.  What will the FAKE NEWS MEDIA say then?
  77. 2021 Thursday J: Joe Biden News– Questions continue to arise as to WHY Faux First Lady Dr. Jill Biden spent nearly 20-25 minutes ‘introducing hubby ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ to U.S. military in Great Britain yesterday.  We brought that up yesterday- is she akin to Edith Bolling Galt, President Woodrow Wilson’s wife, who ran the show while her husband was incapacitated by a debilitating stroke?  Everyone knows the drooler-in-chief is not all there.

Trump by donating to Joe Biden and other progressive candidates.  Elsewhere, George P. Bush- in yet another incredible show of brown-nosing on his behalf- says that President Donald J.

  82. 2021 Thursday O: Social Media News and Big Tech News– Instagram fact checks satirical posts about Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.  It would appear that they are forcing users to either edit or to delete posts critical of the “Mighty Mite.”   Meanwhile, some sort of ad campaign is targeting workers at Facebook with the intention of preventing President Donald J. Trump from EVER being on the platform again.  In other social media news, the U.S. State Department is attacking Nigeria’s ban on Twitter following Twitter shutting down the account of President Muhammadu Buhari.  Once again, the Biden regime is on the wrong side of the argument.
  83. 2021 Thursday P: Health And Medical Alerts– Patients are hopeful to receive Biogen’s new Alzheimer’s drug, even though it costs $56,000 per year and very few insurances will cover the costs.  Add to that the fact that we know little to nothing about its side effects and it would appear we have a crapshoot on our hands.  Still, if it can help people like the ‘drooler-in-chief Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and the fossilized Senator Dianne Feinstein, then we can watch what happens to them.   Meanwhile, news reports say Medicare Copays for the new Alzheimer’s disease drug could reach $11,500 per year.  Remember: the new drug is projected to cost $56,000 per year.

  85. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. House of Representatives News– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden cares more about Russian jobs than he does American ones.’  And they said that President Donald J. Trump was a Russian stooge!  Meanwhile, Rep.  Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO 3rd congressional district, says the Biden regime must incentivize workers to return to their jobs rather than disincentivize them by giving them more money to stay home rather than to do the right thing.  Elsewhere, House Republicans have sent letters to Mark Zuckerberg and to Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci questioning their interactions over sanitizing the news on the China Virus. 
  86. 2021 Thursday S: U.S. Senate News– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says it’s amazing to see the large number of foreign policy blunders committed by the Biden regime in its first five months.  Next,  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci chose the Chi-Coms and Big Tech over the American people.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he will look at the bipartisan infrastructure bill.  Conversely, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez can’t even sell her moronic policies to her own party.
  87. 2021 Thursday T: Fake News– “Wank-spanking” Jeffrey Toobin- the luminary of CNN- is returning to that network after getting his head straight.  Everyone should remember that Mr. Toobin ‘pulled a Toobin” by masturbating during a Zoom call with his fellow employees several months back.  Will the cameras ever dare to film him below his chest henceforth?

Trump as a ‘disrupter.’  Meanwhile, the Golden State’s Democrats are whining and sniveling that the recall of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom ‘could cost the state $215 million.’  So flipping what?  It’s not like the Democrats care for the homeless, the substance abusers, and anyone else in the state.  They spend BILLIONS of dollars on crap such as the California High Speed Rail boondoggle as well as the loading of salmon spawn onto tanker trucks and carrying them to the Pacific Ocean but they can’t find money for the godforsaken?  WTF!
  90. 2021 Thursday W: Florida State News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says he’ll sign a bill prohibiting transgender surgeries for those under the age of 18.  Good.  He should, they are criminal acts committed by ‘WOKE’ parents.  You want to transition, do it when you hit the age of 18.  Florida has also banned Critical Race Theory from all classrooms.
  91. 2021 Thursday X: Texas State News– The Texas Bar Association is ‘investigating’ Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, for ‘official misconduct’ when he called the 2020 Presidential Election in dispute over the claims of rampant fraud and other crimes.  A Michigan judge ruled that AG Paxton was correct when he called out the fraud in the Michigan and three other states and filed lawsuits in federal courts demanding answers.  The states did not follow their own election laws which is why the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from President Donald J. Trump.

[i] We look forward to promoting the music of the Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, Roy Wood, and Wizzard.

[ii] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii]We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[iv] See previous.

[v] 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. 

[vi] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[vii] President Nixon should never have lifted the trade embargo on communist China.  The only time the embargo should have been lifted is when the people of Taiwan cross the straits and reclaim their country from the communists.

[viii] We look forward to sharing the music of Ray Charles with the readership one day so please remain with us until we do.

[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.

  57. 2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment.  About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life.  Harmeet Dhillon launches a lawsuit on behalf of beaten journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon, last year.   Get them, Harmeet!   Again, we must say that the majority of us writing for the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believe that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party who channels Beijing’s dark money to its various action groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Time to bring ALL of them down.

  59. 2021 Friday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 294,296 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 165,353 deaths  
  60. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,794,217 confirmed cases, 63,393 confirmed deaths, and 2,059,372 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,329,867 confirmed cases, 36,973 confirmed deaths, and 1,970,341 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,471 confirmed cases, 501 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 441,674 confirmed cases, 5,889 confirmed deaths, and 215,260 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Missouri, home of newest Squad member: Rep.

  63. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors – Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.210 per gallon, $2.857 in Florida, $3.944 in Hawaii, and $3.590 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.909.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Namibia: $3.343 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,367,734,381,099 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.[xix]
  64. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #74 for the so-called ‘Border Czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this extremely important job and as of yet, has not shown up to work…once.  Seems like we need a new border czar and not Willie Brown’s former bed partner.  Just saying… In other border news, reports on Newsmax say that nearly $2 billion earmarked for the border wall along the heaviest traffic sector remains unused.  Joe Biden- use this money to continue wall construction.  Now. Speaking of “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden (that tape with him talking about a 7-year-old girl looking like she’s 19 was extremely creepy and classic, classic “Cho-Mo Joe”), today, he officially ended President Donald J. Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy.
  65. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– A Chinese virologist- Dr. Lei-Meng Yan- says ‘Dr. Fauci’s leaked emails prove her claim that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu was indeed leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a majority of people around the globe now believe.’  Amen.  Dr. Fauci was sending the lab $600,000 per year to study bat viruses.  Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci now demands the Chi-Coms release the data on the bat cave patients who were the original people sickened by the Wuhan Flu.
  66. 2021 Friday H: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Advance portions of the Pentagon study into unidentified aerial (and submersible) phenomena are beginning to come out.  Initial excerpts suggest inconclusive findings stating that they could be ‘Chi-Com or Russian highly advanced craft.’  However, Lue Elizondo, the man who headed up the investigation at the Pentagon says that the report actually says the sightings of these and other unknown craft date back 70 years which confirms there is NO way either the Russians or the Chi-Coms could be responsible.  Sightings occurred for as long as human beings have walked the Earth; however, once the nuclear age commenced in the 1950s, the sightings have gone straight up (like the ‘hockey stick model’ that doofus promoting climate change uses) and only continue increasing.  (Note- the Chi-Coms have been busy stealing our (and everyone else’s) technology for decades which suggests there is no way the Beijing bullies could be responsible for this.  We seem to have a BIG PROBLEM.  Anyhow, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says he’s ‘glad he blew the whistle on this problem and got the ball rolling.’  Thank you, senator, thank you.  We didn’t agree with you on much else, but this is a great thing you have done for our country.  
  67. 2021 Friday I: Big Tech News– Little Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook have banned President Donald J. Trump from its social media app (we closed our accounts long, long ago) for the next TWO years, meaning they think they are cutting him off from the rest of the world through the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  However, President Trump said, ‘next time he’s in the White House, there won’t be any dinners for Zuckerberg and his wife, it will be all business.’  We look forward to that time, folks.  Time to use the Sherman Antitrust Act and bust up not only Facebook but also Twitter, Instagram, and all the rest of the mind-controlling apps spying on us and canceling anyone they choose.  
  68. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the ‘graffiti all over her home is a sign of the times in the United States.’  Next the U.S. Senate GOP rejects the Biden regime’s infrastructure demand which leads to feeble old Joe rejecting their rejection.  Wow.  Moving on, yesterday, we reported that jobs created in May were something like 985,000 which was a false number- the true number was 559,000 new jobs which economists said should have been 650,000; the Republicans are ripping Joe Biden a new one over his ineptitude when it comes to being a ‘successful president.’  This man is a walking, stumbling, bumbling disaster and all we can say is ‘IF the Chi-Coms want to get in their licks, they better do it as quickly as possible because once the 2020 Election audits conclude, Joe will be selling pencils on the street corner.
  69. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Former White House counsel under the Trump administration Don McGahn testified before Congress today.  Next, Vice President Mike Pence said that “Black lives saved, not endangered, by the police.”  Next, the Pentagon says- for now- U.S. military bases still cannot fly the LGBTQIA+ flag (but how long before they do).   Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association drops claims against New York Attorney General Leticia James so the NRA can pursue other claims in Manhattan.  Meanwhile, former ambassador to the United States from Israel- Michael Oren- says, ‘it’s always premature to eulogize Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.’  Amen.
  70. 2021 Friday L: Business News– Nonfungible Tokens- so-called NFT sales have fallen by 90-percent as the market implodes.  NFTs are cryptographic assets on blockchain that in the era of cryptocurrencies and other things that don’t exist in the REAL world are things hucksters and shysters peddle to unsuspecting morons wanting to be COOL.  (Note- NFTs are a bogus thing such as digital art and other high-tech crap Millennials love.  Screw ‘em).
  71. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Draw #1665 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 04, 30, 34, 41, 64, and Mega 08.  Stay tuned for further details.  Out of 58,203 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $427 apiece.
  72. 2022 Saturday: Let’s see what corruption the Democrats and their bosses in Beijing are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  63. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Myanmar President Thein Sein implements a population control law requiring women to wait three years between children; critics believe the government can use the law to oppress women as well as minority religion and ethnic populations in the country.  Meanwhile- the victory goes to the Ukrainians today when their military forces carry out a successful ambush on the vehicle carrying the POS Russian thug, Colonel Alexei Mozgovoi.  That’s one for the home team!
  64. 2016 Monday: In Aden, Yemen, ISIS carries out a major suicide bombing that impels 41 Yemeni army recruits up to Allah sooner than expected and leaves another 61 in various stages o injury, dismemberment, and disfigurement.  WTF!  Meanwhile, Baltimore, Maryland, Police Officer Edward Nero is cleared of ALL charges in the peculiar death of local thug Freddie Gray.  He was one of six officers charged with the death of the criminal who died in the back of a police transport vehicle on the way to the hoosegow.
  65. 2017 Tuesday: Following the terrorist bombing in Manchester the day before, the British government increases the terrorist threat level.   Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald J. Trump meets with Pope Francis at Vatican City on this date.  Elsewhere, that knuckle-dragging cretin, former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan testifies before the House Intelligence Committee saying he ‘knows of people who say there was contact between the Trump campaign and the damned Russians.’  Wow.  Big bulls**t, there Mr. ‘Former’ Communist.
  66. 2018 Wednesday: Following several years of upheaval, the NFL arrives at an agreement regarding its players and the playing of the National Anthem: if players are going to be on the field during the anthem, they are to stand.  Otherwise, get your FA off the field and into the locker rooms.  Enough with disrespect of both the nation and your fans!  Thank you, President Donald J. Trump.
  67. 2019 Thursday: Under Operation Blackwrist, law enforcement authorities working with Interpol rescue 50 children imprisoned by a Dark Net pedophile ring.  The children were saved in Thailand, Australia, and the U.S. with the main perp eventually receiving a sentence of 146 years.  Meanwhile, in the United States, deaths of illegal alien kids at the border in U.S. custody now stand at six over the course of eight months.  Of course, incensed Democrats rail at President Trump although when the same thing happened during the Obama regime, you didn’t hear a peep.    Illegal alien parents: please don’t send your brats to El Norte.  Gracias.
  68. 2020 Saturday: More information continues coming to light about how the communist Chinese have been working on bat viruses for the past 15-20 years.  The question is WHY?  Some say it’s because of SARS which caused numerous deaths when it broke out a decade or so ago while others believe- us, too- that it is for biowarfare research.  Well, it appears that COVID-19 did manage to jailbreak the Wuhan Institute of Virology and away we go.  Now dictator for life Xi Jinping says he welcomes a W.H.O.-led investigation into the origin of the Wuhan Virus when it ends.  When it ends?  And the W.H.O.?  The World Health Organization does the bidding of Xi Jinping so why would anyone believe anything it or the communists in Beijing say?  Here are today’s stats, first for the globe: 5,288,392 confirmed cases, 340,875 confirmed deaths, and 2,102,557 confirmed recoveries the last of which gives us hope as the number of recoveries far outweighs deaths.
  69. 2020 Saturday A: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the United States: 1,656,906 confirmed cases, 97,414 confirmed deaths, and 334,452 confirmed recoveries.  Now, we head to the breakdown of the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, California first: 90,631 confirmed cases, 3,708 confirmed deaths, but as usual, ZERO confirmed recoveries because Gov. Gavin Newsom continues playing politics.  He and his regime believe that IF they continue NOT publishing the number of recoveries, Californians will be afraid but next week when we begin seeing temperatures soar to over 100 degrees, people are going to disobey all governmental orders and edicts.  We won’t forget WHO is destroying the economy and It’s NOT President Donald J. Trump.  No, it’s Democrat governors.  Here are the stats for Hawaii: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 579 confirmed recoveries.  Here at the statistics for Washington state: 19,265 confirmed cases, 1,050 confirmed deaths, and ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Come on, Gov. Jay Inslee, release the true stats, you worthless POS.
  70. 2020 Saturday B: Our contacts in Hong Kong continue scoffing at the numbers put out by the communists in Beijing.  Communist China claims 82,974 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,261 confirmed recoveries while Hong Kong claims 1,066 confirmed cases, 4 confirmed deaths, and 1,029 confirmed recoveries.  Our sources claim the numbers for communist China are more like 780,000 confirmed cases, 400,000-plus deaths, and about 1,700,000 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you for the info, please stay safe, Hong Kong!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan!  Free Tibet!  Free Mainland China!  Time to return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as the legitimate government of the mainland and the People’s Republic of China as a usurper government.  We must bring Taiwan back to the United Nations and restore their seat on the U.N. Security Council as it was before the communist takeover.

  77. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– today is Day 62 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris in this job and guess what- she has yet to visit the southern border to do the job. 
  78. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Outrage is growing over Belarus forcing down Ryanair Flight 4978 over its territory to seize a critic of thug ruler Alexander Lukashenko, journalist Raman Pratasevich.  The flight was coming from Athens, Greece, on the way to Vilnius, Lithuania, and as it traversed Belarusian airspace, fighter jets came alongside the aircraft while ground control warned the pilots of a bomb aboard the craft.  The flight then was directed to land at Minsk where the authorities went aboard and arrested Mr. Pratasevich.  Of course, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and other world leaders- including NATO!- condemned the Lukashenko government for this criminal act.  Question- who will do anything about it?  (Note- any members of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day will be careful as to where we fly so as to avoid any kind of illegal rendition threats).
  79. 2021 Sunday H: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– The “Amazing” Dr. Tony Fauci has made it into the running for the 2021 Award that will be awarded in January 2022.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is on the list because he is little more than a hired gun political hack who will babble whatever those funding his lunacy tell him to say.  Who can remember ‘masks were not necessary,’ then ‘masks were,’ then ‘maybe googles, too,’ then ‘maybe no goggles,’ then ‘perhaps two masks,’ then ‘perhaps three masks,’ as well as ‘schools should reopen’ and yet they are not open?  Yup.  He has earned his place in the running this year- Chef Pedro.
  80. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Oh, the gift that continues giving- thank you, communist China, thank you.  According to reports, India which is suffering some massive numbers of the Wuhan Flu also is seeing a dreadful additional effect, the so-called ‘black fungus,’ which in medical parlance is mucormycosis that centers around the eyes, nose, and mouth and can cause death in about half the cases reporting it.  According to the Indian government, they have close to 9,000 cases of this diabolical accompaniment of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  And you question as to whether this evil disease was created in a Chi-Com lab funded by the devious Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.
  81. 2022 Monday: As you know, we await the news of the day…stick around and discover the truth…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys were at a crossroads as far as which direction to go.  Fun at the beach was being replaced with mind trips via smoking the ganja and dropping the big LSD.  Like everyone else, the Beach Boys were expanding their consciousness via the weed and psychedelics and the album composer Brian Wilson was working on- “Smile”- was too far out for the rest of the group and so they released a subpar one entitled, “Smiley Smile” on September 16, 1967.  Although the album was no “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” (Beatles), “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request” (Rolling Stones), “Face to Face” by the Kinks, or “Ogden’s Nut-Gone Flake” (Small Faces), it produced one of the all-time greatest hits of the era: “Good Vibrations” and a lesser one, albeit a live staple, “Heroes and Villains.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and percussion), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  We love this album and understand that 55 years on, it’s still a glorious album to be sure.  We hope everyone will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we believe you will be joyous that you did.

  63. 2020 Tuesday: Due to the Chinese COVID-19 Virus, Democrat governors around the country continue to extend and prolong their stay-at-home orders even though increasing numbers of Americans are beginning to fight back.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proposes an illegal alien, Pro-Death-friendly $3 trillion Wuhan Virus relief bill which everyone with sense says is “CRAZY!”  Here are the Kung Flu COVID-19 statistics for the day (around the planet): 4,233,504 confirmed cases, 289,932 confirmed deaths, and 1,481,314 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,399,305 confirmed cases, 83,019 confirmed deaths, and 234,607 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, we start with California: 69,715 confirmed cases, 2,802 confirmed deaths, and once again, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, we have Hawaii: 635 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 563 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, we have Washington state: 17,330 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO reports of confirmed recoveries.   Democrat governors, we understand you are messing with the statistics so you can continue the lockdown.  You reap what you sow.  IF you are curious about the numbers in the origin nation of the Chinese Virus, they remain the same as they did two weeks ago.
  64. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 161,052,323 confirmed cases, +726,249, 3,344,095  confirmed deaths, +13,178 and 139,983,418 confirmed recoveries, +83,238.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,584,617 confirmed cases, UP 34,297 from yesterday’s reporting, 597,752 confirmed deaths, UP 808,[x] and 26,618,483 confirmed recoveries, UP 65,764.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]   
  65. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 281,782 chi-vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 180,827 deaths.   Now that the CDC says it’s ‘okay’ for kids aged 12-15 to get the shots, the Biden regime is urging parents to rush their children to the nearest drug store to get their immunizations for the Bat Fu Yuk out of Wuhan, communist China.    
  66. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,763,165 confirmed cases, 62,463 confirmed deaths, and 2,006,829 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,278,549 confirmed cases, 35,897 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,556 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,376 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 420,192 confirmed cases, 5,663 confirmed deaths, and 203,994 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Military: they have 291,757 confirmed cases, 348 confirmed deaths, and 278,457 confirmed recoveries.[xii]   
  67. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,022 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,794 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- North Macedonia, the birthplace of Alexander the Great (sorry, Greece): 154,372 cases of the virus, 5,151 confirmed deaths and 139,266 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]     
  68. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,587.66, DOWN 681.50 points (-1.99%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,031.68, DOWN 357.75 points (-2.67%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,063.04, DOWN 89.06 points (-2.14%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.65 per barrel, -0.43 (-0.65%).  The price of GOLD is $1,816.70 per troy oz., -6.10 (-0.33%) while the price of SILVER is $27.17 per troy ounce, -0.07 (-0.27%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,218.00 per troy oz, -7.90 (-0.64%) while the price of COPPER is $4.72 per pound, -0.01 (-0.26%).[xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,868.52 per troy oz, -68.71 (-2.34%).[xv] The price of RHODIUM is $27,700.00 per troy oz., -700.00 (-2.46%).[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.16.     In South Korean Won, one greenback equals 1,132.63 and in South Sudanese Pound, a buck equals 130.26 and in Sri Lankan Rupee, one dollar equals 195.50 of theirs.[xvii]    Meanwhile, Tesla, Apple, and Microsoft are driving the stock markets down.  However, credit card debt has fallen by $49 billion over the past year.  Elsewhere, U.S. consumer prices have gone up by 0.08-percent in April which does not bode well for the American people what with the Consumer Price Index up from a year ago by 4.21-percent.  This is the largest increase since 2009.  Hmmm, what does 2021 have in common with 2009?  Let’s see- Obama-Biden were in the White House and now we have the regime of Biden-Harris in the White House.  See the parallels?  In other business news, thanks to the gas shortage slowing deliveries, Chick-Fill-A is rationing its famous secret sauce.
  69. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.112 per gallon, $2.886 in Florida, $3.840 in Hawaii, and $3.522 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.820.  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- Egypt: $2.114 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,278,809,428,671 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 50 for ‘Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the border.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues the so-called ‘controversial’ Title 42 implemented by President Donald J. Trump back in March 2020 to close the southern border over Bat Fu Yuk concerns to all but the most essential travel.  People are asking where “Kooky Kamala” stands on the Biden regime continuing the Trump policy?  (Note- we all believe that the border remains wide open and that armies of illegal aliens continue pouring across it which is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, lining the border with minefields, laying in foo gas pits, building anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, and \anti-boat obstacles,  as well as to station fast-response units along the border.  We also believe that U.S. Special Forces MUST carry out targeted assassinations of human traffickers, smugglers, and other criminals operating along our southern border).  (Additional note- NO matter what these lying Biden regime officials say, people are still flooding across the southern border.  Period.  In April, more than 178,000 illegals were apprehended crossing the border while 6,000 illegal aliens per day are being released into the interior of the country.  Hunting licenses anyone?).[xxi]
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fighting between the Israelis and the human fecal matter in Gaza continues, thanks to the Biden regime sending billions to the Iranians and millions to the Palestinian terrorists.  Missiles are crisscrossing the border with at least 55 dead, most of whom are Palestinians.[xxii]  The Israelis have launched targeted missile strikes on the Islamic National Bank and the Finance Ministry in Gaza leveling both buildings to the ground.  Speaking of the Iranians, so-called ‘Climate Czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry swore today that he NEVER informed the Iranians of Israeli covert ops in Syria.  The Iranians claim otherwise.  Still, the Biden regime is sending a flunky from the U.S. State Department to broker some sort of peace deal between the warring sides.  Good luck.  (Note- at least befuddled old Joe says that ‘Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.  Exceptionally good, Joe, exceptionally good).
  72. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Joe Biden’s erratic policies according to a new report are giving the Chi-Coms the ‘edge’ over the United States.  We concur.  In another surprise news, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is sanctioning a Chi-Com official, Yu Hui, who USED to hold office that allowed him to persecute the Falun Gong and other religious minorities.  Wow.  Next, Secretary Blinken stressed ‘U.S. resolve’ to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  We bet Mr. Lavrov was trembling in his shoes.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– A new report says that thanks to the Chi-Coms and their release of the ‘VID around the world and to the United States, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. went back up in 2020.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is raising questions about events that have become commonplace during the China Virus pandemic such as lockdowns and restrictions, especially on religious liberties.  Elsewhere, a panel agreed that the WHO- the World Health Organization- should have greater latitude in investigating the origins of pandemics.  Currently, the WHO is in the pocket of the Beijing Bullies.  Moving on, the Buckeye State is giving vaccinated citizens the opportunity to win a lottery of $1 million.  They hope everyone will rush out to get the vaccine.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– White House reporters are lambasting the Biden regime over its lack of transparency.  Dumb asses, listen up!  First, Joe Biden can only get it together once or twice a week.  The man is senile.  Second, what you see is a continuation of the Obama-Biden regime that shut out the news media, conducted its own in-house photography sessions, and even spied and jailed reporters.  YOU OWN THIS.  They are unhappy that the White House comm team edits all quotes before they go to press.  Wow.  Sounds like Joseph Goebbels is somewhere behind the scenes…Elsewhere, 120 former U.S. military and Department of Defense officials are warning about the peril our country faces as well as that from Joe Biden’s mental fitness (or lack of it).
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Biden regime is going to provide federal COVID-19 relief aid to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, Joe Biden is going full-blown Cloward and Piven by pushing his $4.1 trillion spending bill.  He said to the BIG FOUR House and Senate leaders- Kevin McCarthy and “Cocaine  Mitch” McConnell on the right side of the aisle and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- that all he has to do is ‘to snap his (flaccid) fingers and so it shall be.’  Whoa, Joe, whoa. The GOP leaders told ‘Forgetful Joe’ moments later that ‘raising taxes on the American people is a nonstarter.’  
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  According to Newsmax, prosecutors in the Derek Chauvin case asked for an ‘upward departure’ which means that they want Chauvin to get more time than he originally would have due to the fact that he abused his power.  The judge in the case agreed and made a ruling that will allow the sentence to become harsher both for him and the other three officers awaiting trial.   Meanwhile, the POS shooter who opened up in Times Square, New York City, a few days ago and shot three people including a young child was apprehended down in Florida. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Last night, she was running her mouth and today, she is still running her mouth.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, was voted out as House GOP conference chair.  She went to the mics after being humiliated and said she ‘will work to make sure that President Donald J. Trump NEVER gets close to the White House ever again.’  WTF is wrong with you, Liz?  Just cross over to the Democrat side of the aisle, you and your father were NEVER flipping Republicans, you frigging moron.[xxiii]  Ret. Col. Denton Knapp says, ‘Cheney’s ouster was justified.’  Correct.  She is not a team player.  However, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the ‘House GOP will advance with a unified conservative vision’ as the real battle is winning the House (and Senate) back in 2022.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– Yet another Democrat domino topples, this time new tax records show that a former staffer for Senator Dianne “The Disoriented” Feinstein- Daniel Jones who runs the ultra-left-wing, pro-Marxist TDIP, aka the Democracy Integrity Project, colluded with George Soros, the globalist former Nazi now a pro-communist scumbag to fund the so-called ‘Steele Dossier,’ the phony document with which the Democrats went after President Donald J. Trump.  It is amazing as to how as time passes; more information comes to light that continues to show just what an evil, bogus sham investigation the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert S. Mueller III was.  NOTHING BUT CRAP.  Meanwhile, Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, considered to be most at risk in next year’s elections, blasts the Biden regime’s economic policies as being bad for the Granite State.  Wise up, Joe.  Even members of your party are preparing to swim against the current.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Two far-left Democratic-Socialist senators, “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, Hawaii, and “Creepy Cory” Booker, New Jersey, are planning to set up a ‘new caucus’ in the haloed halls of Congress (yeah, right), the BIPOC- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color caucus.  Wow.  Big deal.  ONLY Democrats who are ‘black, indigenous, and people of color’ will qualify while Republicans who identify with those same groups will be kept at arm’s length as though they have B.O.  What a load of crap.  Still, look at the two losers setting it up and we mean LOSERS, with a capital “L.”  Elsewhere, H.R. 1 is stuck in a Senate committee.  We hope it remains there as though it’s in a tar pit.
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: National Security News– The federal government is easing restrictions in 12 states with which to combat the gasoline shortages thanks to the cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline that runs from Texas through 16 other states ending up in Maine.  Yet, the feds do not seem to want to address the hack, claiming it’s a confidential business matter.  Uh-huh.  Experts claim that the cyberattack exposes the lack of required defenses protecting pipelines such as the Colonial pipeline. 
  81. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Rep. Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district, is demanding answers from CEO Tim Cook and Apple regarding their use of SLAVE LABOR in Chi-Com concentration camps in Xinjiang Province and elsewhere within that communist country.  Crickets. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday R: Popular Culture News– The Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2021 are Jay-Z[xxiv], the Go-Gos[xxv], and the Foo Fighters[xxvi] who all got in on their first nomination as well as Carole King[xxvii], Todd Rundgren[xxviii], and Tina Turner[xxix].  Congratulations.  What about the Monkees?[xxx]  Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneres is giving up her TV talk show after 19 years of being a major guiding light.
  83. 2021 Wednesday S: Religion News– Catholic bishops in the U.S. are pushing back against Marxist Pope Francis edict on NOT denying Joe Biden and other wayward Pro-Death politicians by urging everyone to sign onto a petition to make sure the Hyde Amendment continues being the law of the land.  The Hyde Amendment prohibits U.S. taxpayer dollars being used to fund abortions.  (Note- Pope Francis, YOU need to resign NOW).  
  84. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3559 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 01, 19, 20, 38, 54, and Powerball 17.  Out of 127,842 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $14,328 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) Oh Those Donuts in Costa Mesa, CA 92627; (2) Safeway in Walnut Creek, CA 94596; and (3) Easy Money in San Francisco, CA 94122.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #845, the one with $168 million on the line: 01, 19, 20, 38, 54, and Powerball 17.  Out of 68,297 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $12,438 apiece.

[i] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] 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.

[iv] 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.

[v] 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.

[vi] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

[vii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[viii] See earlier footnote.

[ix] In late 2019- early 2020, the World Health Organization says the COVID-19 strain of this Chinese-engineered POS disease was NOT transmissible between human beings…until it was.

[xxi] Late in the afternoon- and this is a good one- Newsmax ran a Chiron crawl that said, “The Biden administration, (i.e., the regime), is ordering construction on the border wall to begin again.”  Say what?  We cannot believe that mixed-up, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, drooling old Joe Biden has reordered construction on the wall again.  Say what?

[xxii] Interestingly enough, while lunatic members among the House Democrats continue calling for an end of Israel, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi came out and blasted Hamas, the POS terrorist organization that needs to be eliminated from the face of the planet.  Wow.  Didn’t know “Mumbles” had it in her; still, once the AOC Suicide Squad begins tuning “Mumbles” up, she may very well reverse her statement.

[xxiii] President Donald J. Trump released a statement today in which he said he expects to see Liz Cheney become the next paid commentator on CNN or MSNBC.  She will be removed from office in the primary race next year in Wyoming.

[xxiv] Not sure when we will do the music of Jay-Z.

[xxv] We hope to do the music of the Go-Gos one day.  They were awesome.

[xxvi] We hope to do the Foo Fighters when we do Soundgarden, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and maybe even Korn.

[xxvii] Not sure as to when we will do Carole King?  Perhaps in 20 years or so.

[xxviii] We definitely want to do the music of Todd Rundgren and Nazz as well as Aerosmith.

[xxix] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner one day. Maybe she will be included as a solo act.

[xxx] For the hell of it, we may be doing the music of the Monkees sooner- these guys deserve it.

  80. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  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- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by the Beach Boys- “Surfin’ USA”- came out on March 25, 1963, and featured the same lineup of Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals).  This album continued the new group’s rise to the top via tunes such as the title track, “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Shut Down.”  The Beach Boys were not content to ride the wave with just one genre of music, i.e., surf music, as numerous copycats were jumping aboard the surf train.  They also were delving into their love of hot rods, hot chicks, and wild times in So-Cal.  Hawthorne, California, would never be the same nor would the world.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[xix] Here is what WE think: like the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico blew up back in 2010, at the time many of us had our suspicions that the Obama-Biden administration had some foreknowledge of that event and used to shut down offshore oil drilling for years.  They shut down drilling off our coasts but allowed the rigs to relocate off the coast of Brazil to drill for oil down there.  Likewise, we think the Russian-backed Darkside hacking group shut this extremely important pipeline so as (1) to cut the amount of oil in the country; (2) to drive up the costs of oil and oil-based products; and (3) to help hasten the bullshit Green New Deal through to being.  Mark our words- Olaf Bologolo. 

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.

  55. 2003 Friday: U.S. troops begin rolling into Mosul, Iraq, on this date encountering minimal resistance.  Once the ‘shock and awe’ of U.S. hammer blows on Iraqi forces became overwhelming, many units began moving into the Round 2 strategy of melting into the population and initiating a guerilla war against the Coalition forces.  This would go on for several years.  Violent, bloody, and damned depressing.

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.

Bush threatens a veto as he should.  Meanwhile, the chair of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee (and presidential candidate) Joseph R.

  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.

  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.

  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.

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]

  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).

  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.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every artist releases a ‘20th Century Masters,’ i.e., best of compilation, and Robbie Robertson is no different.  We have a collection of the guitarist’s most beloved tunes all in one place so what do you have to lose?  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

  57. 2004 Sunday: Former Democrat President Jimmy Carter, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, roundly condemns President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair ‘for waging an unnecessary war of aggression against Iraq.’  Millions are protesting all across the world, the Arab world is unhappy (even though Saddam Hussein is a murderous thug), and it’s clear that whatever support there was for the war has vanished.  On top of all this, al-Qaida swears that on the black market, they have purchased suitcase nukes and you know what that means- they want to set them off in the United States.

Secretary-General Kofi Annan proposes increasing the number of members on the U.N. Security Council from 15 to an even two-dozen so he can get additional Third World members on it.
  59. 2006 Tuesday: The social media website Twitter was established with the sending of the first ‘tweet’ by co-founder Jack Dorsey, who wrote: “just setting up my twttr.”  Meanwhile, a day following talks between Vladimir Putin and Hu Jintao, Russian energy company Gazprom announces a new energy project that will see the construction of two major natural gas pipelines from Russia to communist China.  Construction will commence and competition is expected within five years.  The Russians will also provide aid to their Chi-Com allies by helping them construct at least two- and possibly more- nuclear power plants.  Conversely, Democrats in the United States are big on windmills and solar farms.
  60. 2007 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announces that the Bush administration is going to slash funding to the Palestinian Authority so that large portions of the aid cannot somehow find a way into the pockets of Hamas thugs.  Meanwhile, the Iranians declare that they are going to enrich uranium outside the bounds of recent U.N. agreements.
  61. 2008 Friday: The Chi-Com military convoy is heading to Tibet, thousands of soldiers determined to restore law and order (even though the Chi-Coms are usurpers).  The Tibetan people are seeking help from the wider world to liberate their country, but no one cares about this far-away place.  The Chi-Coms will get away with their crimes.  FREE TIBET!  FREE HONG KONG!  FREE TAIWAN!  FREE MACAO!  FREE MAINLAND CHINA!
  62. 2009 Saturday: The Venezuelan military is launching a crackdown across the country as the GREAT SOCIALIST REVOLUTION continues under the AMAZING Simon Bolivar-wannabe Hugo Chavez.  The thugs are taking control of air-and-seaports to prevent their people leaving or unauthorized goods from coming in.  You know, the government has to ‘wet its beak’ in every incoming good.  Meanwhile, Somali pirates leap into their high-speed boats and grab an Indian freighter, taking both the ship and its entire crew hostage.
  63. 2010 Sunday: Muslims in Pakistan are upset, protesting in the streets over claims that Israel is blowing up sacred Muslim sites in their country.  This is bogus.  The Muslims know it’s bogus; yet they continue running amok causing trouble.  The problem has arisen over the fact that Israel is building in Jerusalem, their hereditary capitol, given to them by GOD ALMIGHTY.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informs the world that ‘building in Jerusalem for us is like building in Tel Aviv.’  Stop with the sniveling already.
  64. 2011 Monday: The first full face transplant in history occurs as doctors at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, perform the feat.  Meanwhile, during the third night of outside intervention in the Libyan uprising, the home of Moammar Gaddafi is hit with more bombs than ever before (who gave Barack Obama the right to do this? —the man has a fricking Nobel Peace Prize!).  Elsewhere, Israel launches air strikes against Palestinian targets after the Palestinians fire rockets and mortars into the world’s only Jewish state.  
  65. 2012 Wednesday: The Greek Parliament votes unanimously to approve the bailout deal given them by the European Union.  Elsewhere, violence continues across Iraq as unconfirmed reports arise in which ‘emos’- young Iraqi men who dress in Western styles- are having their skulls bashed in with cinderblocks by local jihadists.   Why would this be untrue?  We know ISIS loves throwing gays off high rooftops.   These people are animals and require eradication like the vermin they are.
  66. 2013 Thursday: The U.S. uses B-52 bombers in joint exercises with South Korea, which leads to North Korea threatening to bomb U.S. bases in Japan.   Meanwhile, the European Space Agency reveals scientific data that says the Universe is 13.82 billion years old.   Elsewhere, while President Barack Hussein Obama is visiting Palestine and Israel, Palestinian thugs begin firing some missiles into Israel.  Light ‘em up, Israelis. 
  67. 2014 Friday: Vladimir Putin ratifies laws today annexing Crimea, defying sanction threats by the U.S. and the European Union.  Ukraine, however, signs an association accord with the European Union which goes against Vladimir Putin’s express wishes.  Meanwhile, Exxon Mobil takes the initiative among energy companies to disclose its plans for dealing with climate change in response to a 2013 shareholder resolution; the company’s move may set a standard for other energy companies to follow.
  68. 2015 Saturday: As ongoing talks between the USA and five other nations, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani expresses optimism that the group could strike a deal on the Iranian’s nuclear development—ostensibly for ‘peaceful purposes’—before a major deadline arrives at the end of the month—what a mess.  Elsewhere, in Yemen, the U.S. evacuates its remaining special operations forces as the country continues going from bad to worse.
  69. 2016 Monday: South Korea reports that North Korea is at it yet again this time firing off five shortrange missiles into the Sea of Japan.  They are pissed off at the new sanctions imposed upon them by the Obama administration.   Elsewhere, in Bamako, Mali, unidentified gunmen storm a hotel used by European Union military officials.   Other than one of the gunmen being shot dead, no one else was hurt.
  70. 2017 Tuesday: Famed head of the world-famous Gong Show- Chuck Barris- dies at age 87. The Gong Show was a great show.   Elsewhere, Iran continues its belligerence claiming they can enrich uranium up to 99-percent and no one can do a damned thing about it.  They don’t know President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Neil Gorsuch undergoes more grilling today before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee. 
  71. 2018 Wednesday:  After the data of more than 50 million users is harvested by Cambridge Analytica, Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg admits he and his company ‘made mistakes.’  Meanwhile, the communist government of China continues amassing power as it announces measures to consolidate radio and television stations into one entity, “Voice of China.”  Finally, a suicide bomber kills 31 people and injures scores more who were celebrating the Persian New Year in Kabul, Afghanistan. 
  72. 2019 Thursday: Six days after the Christchurch, New Zealand, massacre, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announces a ban on military-style assault weapons.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announces via Twitter that the United States should respect and recognize Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights.   Syria, however, says nothing in response.  What can they do about it?
  73. 2020 Saturday: The World Health Organization announces that worldwide, at least 20 vaccines for COVID-19, aka the Old Chi-Vi, the Yellow Flu, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu are in development.  Nations are racing to find ways to mitigate this crap and what makes it worse, the Chi-Coms are close-lipped as to how exactly the virus came about and from whence the evil s**t came.  Speculation centers on the Wuhan wet market where all manner of animals, fowl, insects, and seafood are crammed together, all defecating atop one another and being slaughtered with one another with blood, fecal matter, and other festering, noxious body fluids combine and get onto human beings.  What a barbaric f**king place.  YOU are what YOU eat.
  74. 2021 Sunday:  BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I: First thing we learned today is that the Biden administration is spending $87 million of taxpayer monies to house hundreds of thousands along the southern border, mostly in Arizona and Texas.  (Note- Joe, if you deported everyone, you wouldn’t have to spend a dime).   Next, on ABC News today, Antonio Mayorkas, director of Homeland Security announced that ‘the border is secure, closed, the U.S. is expelling illegal aliens, so don’t come.’  (Note- does anyone believe this duck crap?).  At the same time, Jenn Pellegrino of One America News was interviewing an illegal alien who said that because ‘Joe Biden is in the White House, he and everyone else is coming as Donald Trump wouldn’t let anyone in.’  There you go- what more evidence does the reader require to understand that feeble Joe Biden wants to flood the country with illegal aliens? 
  75. 2021 Sunday A:  BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II:  Congressman Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, predicts that by the early summer, at least 1 million Third World illegal aliens will have crossed our border with millions more to come.  (Note- folks, we are being invaded as though we are in a war.  By the time government wakes up to the danger, it will be too late).   Congressman McCaul also says the Biden administration ‘could easily solve the crisis by returning to Trump era policies on the border.’  Likewise, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, echoes McCaul by saying that the Dems ‘dumped three Trump era policies that would solve the crisis now.’  Meanwhile, Customs and Border Patrol- the CBP- says it’s going to begin releasing illegal aliens into the heartland of Texas sans any court dates.   Elsewhere, Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says that there ‘must be transparency along the border so it’s time for the Biden administration to remove the blackout down there.’  (Note- you would think that IF the Biden people thought they were doing a bang-up job, they would want the world to see exactly what they are doing.  But they don’t!  What is up with that?). Portman also says CBP must be given additional resources.  Finally, Sheriff Mark Daniels of Cochise County, Arizona, says that ‘Joe Biden halting construction on the border wall has driven Mexican cartels- especially the Sinaloa cartel- to increased violence.’  How about doing something for law and order, Joe?
  76. 2021 Sunday B: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden has now officially gone TWO WHOLE MONTHS sans a press conference with reporters.  Supposedly, the ancient stumbler is going to address the entire planet on March 25, 2021.  (Note- stay aware of deep fakes and multiple takes.  Just saying).  Next, China experts say that the reason for Beijing’s hyper-aggressiveness with the Biden administration is that they believe they have him by the balls due to Wall Street and son Hunter Biden’s ties with Chinese Communist Party.   Gordon Chang says that ‘neither Russia or the People’s Republic of China has any respect for Joe Biden and believe they can push the senile old coot around.’  Next, Joe Biden dumps a Trump era student loan debt forgiveness program and then forgives $1 billion in student loan debt.
  77. 2021 Sunday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I: Soon-to-be-gone Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, is among a group of lawmakers seeking to boycott the Beijing Winter Olympics 2022.   Speaking of sports, the Atlanta Motor Speedway is holding a NASCAR event and expects at least 20,000 people to show up and enjoy the spectacle.   Meanwhile, COVID-19 claims one of the NCAA March Madness Men’s Games, the matchup between Virginia Commonwealth University-Oregon University.  Elsewhere, the mayor of Miami Beach, Florida, Dan Gelber, declares a state of emergency as spring breakers descend on the Sunshine State’s beaches.   Speaking of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis bans the teaching of the bogus and highly racist philosophy- Critical Race Theory- and instead, seeks to have teachers become proficient in the teaching of civics, history, and government.   Next, Trump senior adviser Jason Miller says that President Trump will be back on social media within 2-3 months with a new social media app.’  Excellent.
  78. 2021 Sunday D: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– the Japanese announce that they are going to restore their role in global affairs and that its military will aid the United States in protecting the independence of Taiwan and other nations under threat from Beijing.  Welcome back, Japan.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks says that China is a pacing challenge for the U.S. military as China’s elites believe they can push the United States around.   Elsewhere, the U.S. intercepts- get this- chatter among Iranian Revolutionary Guard bigwigs discussing an attack on Fort McNair in Washington, D.C. That would be something if these dimwits attempted a brazen attack like that.  Then again, with Joe Biden in the White House, he’d probably give them a pass.
  79. 2021 Sunday E: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS II: Afghan state media announced the unplanned visit by U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin.  He arrived in Kabul today to hold talks with members of the Afghan government.  Elsewhere, thousands of protesters are flooding the streets of Istanbul, Turkey, protesting Turkish thug dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s signing of a bill with which to withdraw the once great Ottoman Empire from an international treaty recognizing and protecting the rights of women.  Many believe this will empower murderers, abusers, and rapists to reach new heights in punishing women and girls.
  80. 2021 Sunday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, blasts the Dems over their hypocrisy on getting rid of the filibuster rule in the U.S. Senate.  Next, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says the Dems are trying to SILENCE him for exposing their bogus narrative on ‘what happened’ on January 06, 2021, the day the Dems (and some stupid RINOs) are trying to spin as some sort of violent and armed insurrection.  He won’t adhere to their narrative and continues sharing the truth with anyone who will listen.  God bless you, Senator Johnson!   Elsewhere, the Dems are shattering fund-raising records this year.  The DNC has already raised $18.4 million.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Democrat lawmakers in the Empire State are being pressured to return ALL donations given to them by outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Now that the man is besieged by people in his state who are openly demanding he either resign or be removed via impeachment, NO one wants to be tied with this POS.  Finally, the Massage Parlor Massacres could not have come at a better time for the Democrats- they are redoubling efforts to remove lawful gun owners’ firearms.  Go figure.  “Never let a good crisis go to waste.”
  81. 2021 Sunday G: COVID-19 NEWS– as Joe Biden continues braying about the success of ‘his’ COVID-19 vaccine plan, Dr. Moncef Slaoui says that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears 90-percent of the responsibility for getting the vaccine made and distributed.’  Joe Biden does not want to hear that.  Next, the Centers for Disease Control reports the successful vaccinations of 3.1 million customers in a single day for ‘Joe Biden’s vaccine.’  Whoa.
  82. 2021 Sunday H: ECONOMIC NEWS– Former Treasury official Lawrence “Larry” Summers says, ‘Joe Biden’s economic program (if one can call it such) is the least responsible in the past 40 years.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro says, that elections do indeed have consequences and the stolen election of 2020 has lots of consequences.’   Elsewhere, tax expert Julio Gonzalez says that ‘illegal aliens are the big winners of the Joe Biden stimulus (PORKULUS) plan and NOT Americans.’  Ouch.
  83. 2021 Sunday I: OPINION NEWS– Fareed Zakaria of GPS- Global Public Square- said today that the ‘United States military is so much better than that of the People’s Republic of China that the U.S. does not need to spend the kind of money we have been spending on national defense.’  Zakaria says that Beijing is putting more money into its Belt and Roads Initiative with which it will tie large portions of the globe into a commonwealth of sorts that will benefit all nations attached to it.  According to Zakaria, the U.S. is spending more money than it spent at the height of the Vietnam War- adjusted for inflation, of course- so why are we so frightened of communist China?  Fareed sounds rather like a shill for the Chinese Communist Party now, doesn’t he?
  84. 2021 Sunday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET– Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 122,964,412 confirmed cases, +1,081,972, 2,711,747, confirmed deaths, +18,941, and 69,647,959 confirmed recoveries, +614,688.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 30,011,181 confirmed cases, up 105,688 from yesterday’s reporting, 547,453 confirmed deaths, UP 2,322, and 116,813,739 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.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 218,986 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- El Presidente, in another two-and-a-half weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the coronavirus running amok.    
  85. 2021 Sunday K: 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: 3,641,664 confirmed cases, 57,501 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,773 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 357,376 confirmed cases, 5,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., the territory of Guam: currently, they have 8,749 confirmed cases, 135 confirmed deaths, and 6,707 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 827,772 confirmed cases, 6,092 confirmed deaths, and 802,337 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Iraq, the birthplace of civilization- 789,390 cases of the ‘VID, 13,969 confirmed deaths and 710,699 confirmed recoveries.
  86. 2021 Sunday M: NATIONAL GAS PRICE AND U.S. NATIONAL DEBT– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.879 per gallon, $3.604 in Hawaii, and $3.316 in Washington state.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,078,445,971,103 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  87.  2021 Sunday N: CRIME NEWS– Law enforcement officials finally arrested a murderous POS named Sean Michael Lannon.  U.S. marshals have been pursuing this guy, tying him to at least five murders including that of his ex-wife.  When they finally arrested him, he confessed to at least 16 murders of various people across the country.  Give this guy the chair!
  88. 2022 Monday: Stay tuned…

The next effort by folk trio, Danko/Fjeld/Andersen- “Ridin’ on the Blinds”- came out on April 10, 1994.  Once again, the band performed gloriously on acoustic tunes, tunes that united the trio in a shared vision for their musical future.  The lineup featured Rick Danko (bass, guitars, lead and backing vocals), Jonas Fjeld (lead and backing vocals and guitars), Eric Andersen (lead and backing vocals, keyboards), as well as accompaniment from- most notably- the Band’s Garth Hudson on keyboards and accordions- among numerous others.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and make it apart of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

55. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2022

2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana. The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries. Good, let them be the guinea pigs.
