  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.
  82. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

  35. 1945 Friday: In the largest naval operation in the Pacific Theater in World War II, 1,500 U.S. Navy warships pound Japanese positions on the island of Okinawa.  Okinawa will become the bloodiest fight of the Pacific War as once it is subdued; the next stop will be mainland Japan.

  60. 2015 Monday: After combatting the effects of pneumonia for several weeks, Lee Kuan Yew—91-year-old founder of the nation of Singapore and its leader for 31 years—died.  Elsewhere, the Pentagon is busy alerting U.S. servicemembers who are on an ISIS hit list.  No one knows whether this jihadist scum possesses the ability to strike targets in America, but the U.S. military is not going to permit any harm to come to its people if it can stop such attacks.  
  61. 2016 Wednesday: Researchers using GPR imaging determine that the skull of William Shakespeare most likely has been stolen from his tomb at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford, United Kingdom.   Elsewhere, police in Brussels, Belgium, identify two of the attackers in the recent attacks on a subway station and an airport as a pair of homegrown jihadist brothers.  The search is on for a third man, the reputed ISIS bomber lurking somewhere within the country.  Track him down and KILL him.  Meanwhile, a U.S. airstrike on an al-Qaida camp in the lovely country of Yemen kills dozens of jihadists.
  62. 2017 Thursday: American singer and actress Lola Albright dies at age 92. Elsewhere, loony tunes Congressman Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, in an interview with equally insane ‘newsman’ Chuck Todd told his open-mouthed interviewer that ‘there is more than circumstantial evidence that associates of President Trump- if not the president himself!– colluded with Russian President Vladimir Putin to steal the 2016 Presidential Election from the highly popular Hillary Rodham Clinton (yeah, right.  In your dreams, congressman, in your dreams.  Moron).   However, Senator John McCain, RINO-AZ, says that ‘Congress lacks the credibility itself to investigate such charges.’  Yikes.
  63. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump released an order banning most transgender troops from serving in the military except under “limited circumstances.”  Meanwhile, the online classified ads site Craigslist removed its personals section; the action came after the U.S. Senate passed an anti-sex-trafficking bill that could hold the website and others responsible for illegal activity.  Elsewhere in Sochi, Russia, in one of the largest transfers of desert sand ever, a sandstorm in the Sahara transforms the snow from white to orange. 
  64. 2019 Saturday: With the signing of Xi Jinping- Chinese dictator- and Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio, Italy signs onto China’s Belt and Road Initiative.  A year later, the Italian people are wondering why they are Ground Zero for China’s Wuhan Virus outbreak in Europe.   Meanwhile, with the raising of Syrian Democratic Forces flag over the Syrian city of Baghuz, civilized people proclaim the vanquishing of the ISIS caliphate.  The terrorist scum had held the area for five bloody years. 
  65. 2020 Monday: Due to illness and self-quarantine, the Republican-controlled Senate is not in control with only 48 members present.  The Democrats under Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, at the behest of Speaker Nancy Pelosi will NOT pass a bill designed to protect the country’s economy while providing support to the afflicted unless Republicans sign on to more Obamacare-like government-run medical claptrap as well as all manner of identity politics desires, Green New Deal insanity, increased protections for illegal aliens, and additional Pro-Death protections.  As of the time of this publishing, the GOP was still holding out, hoping the Dems would regain their senses and stop with the insanity but oh, no, they simply won’t surrender their partisan politics.  COVID-19 statistics: earlier in the day, there were 354,677 known cases of the Chinese Virus what with the number of infections up in previous 24 hours standing at 21,115; total known deaths are 15,430, up 940 in 24 hours.  In the United States, total known cases are 35,345 what with 473 deaths, up by 56 in past 24 hours.  This does not account for the stats for the second part of the day.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: YESTERDAY’S NEWS CATCHUP- Dare we say this but the name of the individual who shot up the King Sooper Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, goes by the name of Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa.  Allah Akbar, anyone?  Meanwhile, Robert Aaron Long, the perp who carried out the Atlanta Massage Parlors Massacre found himself in court charged with ‘malice murder’ and ‘aggravated assault.’  The poor bastard was trying to conquer a sex addiction, something he will be unable to conquer in prison as everyone knows what goes on in there.  Sad.  Elsewhere, in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, after seating 2 alternate jurors yesterday giving the trial a full 12 plus the two, seated a 15th today in case one of the other ones drops or is forced out for some as yet unanticipated reason. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki could not answer a reporter’s question as to WHY illegal alien mobs receive better treatment than do National Guard members protecting Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.  National Guard members have had to sleep in frigid parking garages and have been served undercooked, raw, or poor-quality food while illegals are pampered like Roman emperors.  Something is NOT right here.
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II- Regarding the border mess, the Biden administration continues trying to deflect blame for the ongoing disaster onto President Donald J. Trump’s back.  Not working very well seeing as how President Trump handed Joe Biden a secure border.   Regarding the Biden Border Catastrophe, 40-percent in a recent poll blame Joe Biden 100-percent for the border catastrophe while 27-percent (the uneducated) blame President Donald J. Trump.  Another 12-percent blame Congress.  What everyone agrees on is the border must be secured NOW.  Speaking of the CRISIS, “Kooky Kamala” Harris says her administration received a f-up border from the previous administration and when asked if she was going to visit the border anytime soon, laughed it off.[iii] 
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III-  the Republicans are dangling the bait of amnesty for DACA recipients, i.e., the much-beloved DREAMers (yeah, right- deport all of them NOW) in exchange for the Democrats agreeing to fix the broken farmworker visa system.  You know, we used to have the Bracero Program which allowed temporary workers to cross to and from the southern border to work in the United States and then to return home after the season ended.  What is so frigging difficult about this?  Just fix it and stop the tidal wave of illegals rampaging through our country.  Enough already!  Meanwhile, we learn that only 13-percent of family units crossing the southern border are turned back into Mexico.  Wow.
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: LAW ENFORCEMENT/LEGAL NEWS- Attorney Sidney Powell files a motion to dismiss suit in court to have the bogus lawsuit filed by the (allegedly) corrupt Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  These scumbags filed a frivolous lawsuit against all those who pointed out the fact that Dominion coupled with Hugo Chavez’s Smartmatic software STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election and threw it to decrepit old Joe Biden.   In other news, Regent University hosted a lengthy symposium on how the election fraud in 2020 occurred what with Michelle Bachman and Peter Navarro providing reams of evidence showing the crime committed before our eyes.  Elsewhere, the Massachusetts attorney general seeks to vacate thousands of drug convictions that were handed out using lab ‘evidence’ with which law enforcement tampered so as to achieve convictions.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. POLITICAL NEWS-  Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district announced today that he is running to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Senator Richard Shelby.  Good luck, Mo!  Meanwhile, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, blasts the Biden tax plan as being little more than a wealth redistribution scheme.  Elsewhere, by a vote of 68-29, the U.S. Senate confirms the nomination of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to become the next U.S. Secretary of the Labor Department.  From what we hear, the guy is a labor hack.  In other news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district says that ‘efforts to expel me will fail.’  Next, Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, says she won’t confirm anymore WHITE nominees sent to the U.S. Senate by the Biden administration until some Asian-Americans begin getting nominated for high posts- like what?  Ambassador to Micronesia?  Finally, Joe Biden says we can ban assault weapons.  Go for it.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS I-  Economist Steve Moore pointed out today how the $1,400 stimulus checks sent to, uh, not just American taxpayers but to felons in prison, illegal aliens, and even savvy foreigners could end up costing $11,000 each.  Not good.  Meanwhile, U.S. corporations are urging elected Democrats to push through the DREAMER bill so as to get all this cheap labor employed while American workers are left without.   However, corporations may not get the last laugh as U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is promising to boost the U.S. corporate tax rate back to where it was- if not higher- than before President Donald J. Trump was in office.  Corporate heads, DON’T you wish you had supported the 45th president when you had the opportunity?   
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS II- In other PANDERING NEWS, the city of Evanston, Illinois, becomes the first city in the United States to provide reparations to black Americans.  Wait, isn’t Evanston a NORTHERN CITY where slavery did not exist?  WTF is up with that?  (Note- NO longer can Democrats in Evanston use ‘slavery’ as a club to bash the heads of their political enemies.  NEVER).  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s economic advisers are warning fellow Democrats to prepare for an additional $3 trillion in spending, much of which will go into HIGH-SPEED RAIL?  WTF?  This has never worked in the United States nor will it.  Next, Microsoft is in talks to buy instant messaging app, Discord.   Finally, Regal Cinemas plans a grand reopening across the country beginning on April 02, 2021.
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: FOREIGN AND OVERSEAS NEWS I- Following a complaint, the Federal Communications Commission- the FTC- is looking into allegations that two communist Chinese telecommunications companies, China Central Television and CGTN, for inserting propaganda into its broadcasts as well as showing coerced confessions by prisoners who have been mistreated.   Meanwhile, Russian officials say that Joe Biden has repeatedly rejected any open talks with Moscow so that mutual problems can be addressed, and grievances aired.  That’s Joe for you.  Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s going to address a virtual summit of European leaders this upcoming Thursday just as he is supposed to address the American people via a press conference.  (Note- we expect neither will occur or if they do, they will come off as Max Headroom with multiple takes, Deep Fakes, and hidden earpieces.  What a country).  Moving on, Dems are pressuring Joe Biden to ease sanctions on communist Venezuela.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia is proposing a ceasefire with the Houthi rebels.  Finally, Israeli voters are taking another shot at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 123,924,888 confirmed cases, +408,189, 2,727,640 (down from yesterday’s figure), confirmed deaths, +7,937, and 70,320,511 confirmed recoveries, +344,632.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,104,069 confirmed cases, up 49,466 from yesterday’s reporting, 548,613 confirmed deaths, UP 442, and 117,037,711 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. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,146 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Centers for Disease Control are hammering AstraZeneca for using outdated data in their correlation of vaccine results.  Say it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, a new study suggests that low-dose aspirin can ward off the coronavirus.  Elsewhere, Pfizer is developing a pill with which to ward off the ‘VID.  (In other healthcare news, Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AK, has signed a new antiabortion law into being, one that will challenge Roe v. Wade in the courts).   (Other News II- the teachers’ unions are pushing back on the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing: six feet or no teach).
  77. 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,646,171 confirmed cases, 57,799 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,912 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 358,762 confirmed cases, 5,232 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the Northern Marianas: currently, they have 158 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,764 confirmed cases, 6,109 confirmed deaths, and 807,653 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Philippines, home of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos (and her legendary shoe collection): 677,653 cases of the virus, 12,992 confirmed deaths and 578,461 confirmed recoveries.  
  78. 2021 Tuesday L:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,423.15, DOWN 308.05 points (-0.94%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,227.70, DOWN 149.84 points (-1.12%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,910.52, DOWN 30.07 points (-0.76%).  The price of GOLD is $1,726.20 per troy oz., +1.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.11 per troy ounce, -0.14 (-0.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,169.60 per troy oz, -5.00 (-0.43%) while the price of COPPER is $4.03 per pound, -0.05 (-1.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,605.00 per troy oz, -24.00 (-0.91%). The price of RHODIUM is $29,200.00 per troy oz.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $57.42 per barrel, -0.34 (-0.59%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.79.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Bangladeshi taka, one greenback equals 84.37.  
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.612 in Hawaii, and $3.320 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,085,852,256,420 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness.  IF the Chinese are going to become the masters of the world, well, what can we do except to join the band.
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: UNIDENTIFIED FLYING (AND SUBMERSIBLE) OBJECT NEWS- It would appear that the American people will soon learn the truth about UFOs although whether anyone will go the distance and inform us that the persons operating these crafts are not of this world is unclear.  Louis Elizondo was on Fox News this morning discussing the phenomena that has vexed millions around the world since the Roswell crash in New Mexico shortly after the end of World War II.  Elizondo provides three explanations as to the origins of these craft.  First, that they are BLACK OPERATIONS vehicles that only certain governmental organizations are aware of while the second is that the technology could be that of our enemies.  The third is that they come from somewhere else although no one wants to definitively state they come from somewhere NOT of this Earth such as interdimensional or interplanetary or interstellar origins.  To be a UFO, there must be at least one of five observable characteristics such as (1) the ability to accelerate almost instantaneously (2) hypersonic speeds (3) low observability (4) the ability to operate on various planes such as air to water, water to air, and whatever else observers might see and (5) the ability to move sans any form of wings, engine exhausts, and other characteristics associated with earthly flight.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS II- North Korea sent a message to Joe Biden today in which, Kim Jong Un- the Great Leader II- fired off a barrage of short-range missiles into the sea this past weekend as a message to the White House that the Democratic Republic of North Korea does not like Joe Biden firing up the U.S.-South Korean military exercises.  Today, the Department of Defense said that ‘North Korea threatens the entire region.’  Wow.  We don’t think Chairman Kim likes Joe Biden very much.  It will be interesting to see what comes of this.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration still won’t say that labeling Vladimir Putin a ‘killer’ was the wrong thing to do.  Elsewhere, China lashes out at U.S. allies in a bid to thwart the agenda of “Joe Biden.”  The People’s Republic of China began slapping reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for the pressure the ‘Biden administration’ and the EU are slapping onto Beijing for mistreating the citizens of Hong Kong, Tibet, and Uighur Muslims.  China says these are internal issues like mistreatment of minorities in the U.S. is an American internal issue.  Joe- the AICPENDBLOG.COM recommends YOU don’t start something with the PRC you can’t finish or win.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Stick around for the results of the Mega Millions Draw #1644 tonight what with a $122 million pot on the line for some lucky winner(s).  Here are the numbers: 12, 23, 35, 38, 55, and Mega 11.  Out of 80,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,340 apiece.
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS FOREIGN/OVERSEAS III- We overlooked this story this morning but in a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, a massive fire broke out killing 560 people outright, thousands more injured, and causing the disappearances of another 400.  The U.N. says that 45,000 people have been displaced.   The Bangladeshis have given shelter to more than 1 million of their fellow Muslims whom the anti-Muslim government in neighboring Burma drove out back in 2017 via a concerted effort to kill all of them.  Next, even though Saudi Arabia proposed a ceasefire with the Houthi rebel scum in Yemen, the Houthis conducted an attack on Abha International Airport with a drone loaded up with explosives.   Had the ceasefire gone into effect, it would have permitted the reopening of the Sana’a airport in Yemen so that relief supplies could flow into the starving, impoverished civilians in the country.  Instead, we think the Saudis had better raze all Houthi-controlled areas. 
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS NATIONAL:  A 14th woman filed a lawsuit against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson accusing him of exposing himself and performing lewd acts on them.  The quarterback denies all allegations and investigation is ensuing.  Unlike Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, we believe that Watson is facing false accusations and we will wait to see where the evidence takes us.   Elsewhere, the ‘Biden administration’ announces all official documents will bear the moniker ‘Biden-Harris Administration.’  Speaking of old Joe, he says he is going to take America’s guns away since a crazed Syrian refugee POS shot up the Boulder, Colorado, grocery store killing 10 people, all of whom were WHITE.  No one seems to be shedding tears for them but oh, those poor Asian hookers- uh, excuse me, masseuses- in Atlanta, which is an entirely different story.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, says ‘making Washington, D.C. a state is a matter of racial equity seeing as how there are loads of black folks living there.’
  85. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Band is an archivist’s release featuring the group live at one of the all-time celebrated great shows following Woodstock.  “Live at Watkins Glen” came out on April 04, 1995, and features the Band’s performance at the famous site.  This concert for those who may not know featured a top bill of not only the Band but also the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band so folks, it was one long trip to be remembered or lost in the fog.  All three groups were in their peak eras although the Dead and the ABB would continue for decades to come so why not listen to this legendary set?  Both the Band and the Dead appeared at the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair of 1969 whereas the ABB did not.  One can only ponder why.  Ah, well, seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you did, of that, we are positive.

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-NINETY-FOUR OF THE BIDEN REGIME

49. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2022, UPDATE A:

This should surprise NO ONE: Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau is the FIRST NOMINEE in this year’s Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Unanimously selected by the chef-authors, early odds-making guarantees he will come in at the top of the list in January 2023 unless, of course, a far worse POS manages to edge him out…

  1. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 421,926,659 confirmed cases, +1,935,290, 5,891,718 confirmed deaths, +11,171 and 346,321,278 confirmed recoveries, +2,449,746. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 80,014,390 confirmed cases, UP 98,656 from yesterday’s reporting, 958,115 confirmed deaths, UP +2,618,[i] and 51,370,553 confirmed recoveries, UP 351,238 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 508,731 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 145,479 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 394 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 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: 8,880,750 confirmed cases, 83,910 confirmed deaths, and 8,870,922 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,819,172 confirmed cases, 68,579 confirmed deaths, and 3,792,613 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 233,640 confirmed cases, 1,292 confirmed deaths, and 232,348 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,410,658 confirmed cases, 11,615 confirmed deaths, and 1,399,285 confirmed recoveries (lazy bastards- it’s still mostly the weekend for this backward state).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New Hampshire: they have 293,697 confirmed cases, 2,333 confirmed deaths, and 288,281 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,523,464 confirmed cases, 9,828 confirmed deaths, and 3,361,225 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Tanzania, 155th place on the list: 33,549 cases of the virus, 796 confirmed death and 32,753 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,079.18, DOWN 232.85 points (-0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,548.07 DOWN 168.65 points (-1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,348.87, DOWN 31.39 points (-0.72%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $91.66 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.11%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.80 per troy oz., -1.20 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $23.95 per troy ounce, +0.07 (+0.31%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,069.50 per troy oz, -23.20 (-2.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, -0.01 (-0.20%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,315.42 per troy oz., -50.91 (-2.15%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.55%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,510,000.00 per CNY/T, +25,000,000.00 (+1.68%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,298.00 per USD/T, +30.00 (+0.92%). The price of ZINC is $3,603.00 per USD/T., -3.00 (-0.08%).   The price of COCOA is $2,571.00 per USD/T, -18.00 (-0.70%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,265.10 USD 1,000 board feet -25.30 (-1.96%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.33 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.29.    In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 115.00 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71 and in Kazakhstani Tenge, one dollar equals 428.08 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.728 per gallon, $3.506 in Florida, $4.503 in Hawaii, and $3.973 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Delaware- $3.573.  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 129th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Uruguay: $6.453 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,136,116,395,744 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Kingdom the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland which holds $318,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine are evacuating civilians- mostly women, children, and seniors- from the region into Russia.  Global observers see this as yet another sign of impending war which Joe Biden said again this afternoon- with a glazed look in his dead eyes- is coming and coming soon.  Stop it, Joe, stop it, stop with banging the war drums.  Everyone knows you are craving a distraction, any distraction with which to save your crumbling illegitimate presidency.  We expect Uncle Joe is telling Volodymyr Zelensky to engineer a false flag operation that will draw the Russians across the border so Uncle Joe can then declare martial law here because of the war and to freeze the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.
  8. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- United States UN Ambassador Linda Greenfield-Thomas says that ‘observations point to a Russian invasion of Ukraine in coming days.   Next, the Biden regime says that ‘Russia hacked into Ukraine’s banking system.’  The head of the regime- senile Joe Biden- says he’s convinced that Vladimir Putin has decided to invade Ukraine.  Again, stop it, Joe, enough already.  IF Putin does invade the Ukraine, it’s because you, him, and Volodymyr Zelensky have all conspired to engineer this ‘wag the dog’ scenario as each one of you believes he can achieve something out of the chaos.  Joe Biden says booting Russia from the SWIFT banking system is unlikely in the opening round of sanctions the Bidenistas want to slap on the Russkies.
  9. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The globally celebrated U.S. ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been on the job for 322 days now.  She is visiting the border, although it’s not ours but that of Eastern Europe.  She has not visited the U.S. border in 236 days.  Here are the stats regarding the illegal alien invasion.  First, here’s the cost of caring for the illegals for the past 49 days: $306,480,300.00.  Shocking.  Next, here’s the cost of caring for the illegals now for the past 414 days: $41,953,776,7619.  Next, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed across the southern border since January 01, 2022: 405,742.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals roaming the land: 42,650,006.  We at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day genuinely believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-100 million illegals which is an incredibly depressing number.  Let’s round them up, force them to work off the costs of Uncle Sam caring for them, and then after 25 years’ hard labor per illegal, deport them back to whence the f**k they came.  Customs and Border Protection is now warning its agents of possible assassination attempts by Mexican drug cartel sicarios.
  10. 2022 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I- In Canada, federal law enforcement is arresting members of the FREEDOM TRUCKERS CONVOY and also is in the process of freezing bank accounts, confiscating private property, grabbing kids, pets, anything of value or of emotional importance to the peaceful protesters so as to crush the brave souls demanding freedom from their totalitarian government.   Speaking of this travesty, U.S. Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large congressional district, says the ‘freezing of donor accounts is deeply disturbing.’  Begin an investigation.

  16. 2022 Friday P: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump blasted lunatic Empire State Attorney General Letitia James’ insane investigation into all-things Donald J. Trump and Trump Family as being a travesty of justice as well as a witch hunt.  Next, the National Archives says that some of the documents it seized at the 45th president’s Mar-a-Lago estate were ‘classified.’  Ooh, the Deep State is ginning up yet another fraudulent investigation into the rightful president.
  17. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I- Approximately 45 GOP senators have sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland demanding he do everything imaginable to protect and to continue funding the probe headed by special counsel, John Durham.  The more information unfriendly to the Bidenistas hits the news, the less likely the Biden regime will allow it to reach the finish line.  Meanwhile, the Biden White House rebukes Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s visit to Moscow as a ‘show of solidarity.’  Wasn’t Mr. Bolsonaro in Donald J. Trump’s camp? 
  18. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II- Next, progressives in the federal government are attempting to push Joe Biden away from considering Judge Michelle Childs as the replacement for retiring U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.   In other news, Joe Biden signed a stopgap measure to keep the federal government up and running into mid-March.  How about a flipping budget already?   Meanwhile, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy says he’s ‘tested positive for the Chi-Vi.’  Get well soon, Mr. Surgeon General.
  19. 2022 Friday S: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- A U.S. judge has ordered the founder of the Oath Keepers imprisoned ahead of his trial for ‘sedition.’  (Note- the regime is copying what President Abraham Lincoln did during the Civil War in his fight to keep the Union together.  Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi aren’t ‘Abraham Lincoln.’  Another judge says that the January 6 political prisoners deserve credit for cooperation.   Next, a judge rejects President Donald J. Trump’s attempt to toss the January 06, 2021, incitement suit lodged against him but excuses Donald J. Trump Jr. and “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani. 
  20. 2022 Friday T: Special Counsel John Durham’s Probe: After Hillary Clinton’s attorney Michael Sussman began crying about the probe targeting him as one of the key go-betweens between Hillary Rodham Clinton and the creators of the phony Trump-Russia collusion scam by calling it, ‘political,’ the special counsel himself said he ‘never sought to politicize the investigation.’
  21. 2022 Friday U: Political News I- Senator Susan Collins, RINO-MN, says the ‘peaceful transfer of power is essential.’  She, of course, blames President Donald J. Trump for January 06, 2021, rather than the true culprits, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser, and various minions working within the Deep State.   Meanwhile, as Joe Biden’s support among Latino voters grows by the day, Republicans are seeking to capitalize on the ‘46th president’s’ self-inflicted loss. 
  22. 2022 Friday V: Political News II- Following the recall of three ultra-leftist goobers on the San Francisco schoolboard, the ousted president labeled it yet another example of- wait for it- get this- WHITE SUPREMACISM.  Wow.  Don’t you just hate that when it happens?  (It’s so much cow crap).    In other news, Maureen Steele told Newsmax that thousands are expected for the growing U.S. TRUCKER FREEDOM CONVOY preparing to set off next week.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is going to host a fund-raising event with Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, who is seeking to win the state’s U.S. Senate seat, the one from which, Senator Richard Shelby, RINO, is retiring.
  23. 2022 Friday W: U.S. Senate News I- The U.S. Senate confirms Christi A. Grimm to become the top watchdog at Health and Human Services, a $1.6 trillion department that oversees fraud, waste, and other chicaneries occurring within or about this very important agency.  It’s interesting to note that President Donald J. Trump at one time assailed Ms. Grimm.
  24. 2022 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News- Former Minnesota Police Officer Kim Potter receives a sentence of two years in prison and a $1,000 fine in the wrongful death of fleeing thug, Daunte Wright.   Next, New York City law enforcement is going to remove the homeless from the city’s subway system.  About flipping time.
  25. 2022 Friday Y: Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates- By unanimous agreement, the first addition to this year’s running for the Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award is Canada’s fledgling dictator, Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau.  This man deserves to win the award this year, the one in which, we laughingly select someone via the votes of the chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM as well as from the votes of our associated family members, friends, neighbors, employees, vendors, and delivery specialists.  The winner hilariously qualifies to be dragged down into the bowels of the infamous KGB prison in Moscow, the Lubyanka, where they get the Lavrentiy Beria ‘treatment,’ i.e., a fictitious bullet in the head as the former KGB chief used to personally dish out.  Of course, we never promote violence of any type, it’s just a humorous award based upon the history of the USSR.  There are three runner-up prizes- the Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award, the Red Banner Idols Award, and the Beijing Bat Bug Award (which is the ‘booby prize’), but we think “Little Xi” is going to be the big winner this year.
  26. 2022 Friday Z: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1739 what with a $64 million jackpot on the line: 06, 11, 50, 63, 68, and Mega 17.   Out of 54,847 winning tickets, the highest winners were 32 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $524 apiece.

71. 2020 Friday: Following the take-out of Iranian thug General Qassim Soleimani outside the Baghdad airport yesterday, the Iraqi government in a state of shock begins mulling its relationship with the United States. They scream and yell like a bunch of howling banshees, but it is what it is- either you are with us, or you are against us and General Soleimani was a POS who needed to die.

001. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JANUARY 01, 2022

63. 2021 Friday A: Once again, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate blocks the $2,000 relief checks for the American people. Here’s the thing that is angering the American people: the COVID-19 Relief Bill directs $174 billion to the American people and $762 billion to various other countries around the world. This is insane. What is even worse is that part of the $174 billion for the American people also includes $600 PLUS another $1,200 per illegal alien they did not get in the first stimulus.

  60. 2019 Tuesday: The 26th U.S. Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis left office after being fired by President Donald J. Trump for working against the commander-in-chief.  His replacement- Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan assumed office on this date.   Meanwhile, loser RINO Senator-elect Mitt Romney says, “Trump has not risen to the mantle of office.’  Like Mittens should know.  He folded like porn star-s overused member back in 2012.
  61. 2020 Thursday: After a two-day standoff outside the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq’s Green Zone, Iranian-backed militias withdraw back into the rat holes inside the city.  The pro-Iranian group tried to storm the embassy following devastating U.S.-led airstrikes against terrorist targets in Syria and Iraq.  Light ‘em up, boys, light ‘em up.  Meanwhile, following an airstrike by Syrian government forces in Idlib, Syria, aid workers claim the Syrians hit a school killing nine civilians and wounding loads of others.  Folks, they’re terrorists, shed no tears for terrorists.  Elsewhere, tens of thousands of Hong Kong residents take to the streets to protest Beijing’s oppressive presence and to defend their liberties from the Chi-Coms.   Finally, the strike by French railway workers now is the longest since 1968.
  62. 2021 Friday: Ever the “optimist,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says, “Trump will be dead in a few days” as relations between his rat-shit country and the United States continue to deteriorate.  Meanwhile, the Iranians chant ‘DEATH TO AMERICA’ on the one-year anniversary of the whacking of Quds Force commander General Qassim Soleimani.  We say, “NUKE THEM!”  We should nuke the scumbags because once again, they are mining the Persian Gulf as oil tankers leaving Iraq find the explosive devices floating in the sea lanes.
  63. 2021 Friday A: Once again, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate blocks the $2,000 relief checks for the American people.   Here’s the thing that is angering the American people: the COVID-19 Relief Bill directs $174 billion to the American people and $762 billion to various other countries around the world.  This is insane.  What is even worse is that part of the $174 billion for the American people also includes $600 PLUS another $1,200 per illegal alien they did not get in the first stimulus.  The time is coming- so says Chef Vladimir Gdansk- that the Second Revolution coming will resemble more the French Revolution than the American Revolution.  People are angry that government NO LONGER REPRESENTS US!
  64. 2021 Friday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 83,579,767 confirmed cases, +585,547, 1,820,923, confirmed deaths, +10,563, and 47,162,055 confirmed recoveries, +268,693.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,212,820 confirmed cases, up 302,146 from yesterday’s reporting, 349,397 confirmed deaths, UP 4,520, and 9,136,262 confirmed recoveries, UP 379,112.
  65. 2021 Friday C: 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: 2,307,706 confirmed cases, 25,971 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,644 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,064 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia where they have a Ku Klux Klan-lover for a governor: currently, they have 354,766 confirmed cases, 5,081 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 426,769 confirmed cases, 3,338 confirmed deaths, and 378,038 confirmed recoveries.
  66. 2021 Friday D: The E.U. and the Chi-Coms continue working on their ‘deal’ to open markets in the communist nation to European investment.   Next, the Philippines block travel from the U.S. following detection of the new strain of the Chi-Vi in the United States.   Elsewhere, the entire African Continent (26 states as of today with most of the others soon to join)- with the exception of Eritrea- enters into the massive free trade zone it had previously set up making it the largest free trade zone since the creation of the World Trade Organization.  Meanwhile, both the U.S. State Department and the people of Hong Kong demand the release of the so-called “Hong Kong 12,” wrongly imprisoned by the thugs in Beijing.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Georgia voters come out for the final day of early voting in the two U.S. Senate run-off race- 3 million people have early voted so far.  Meanwhile the U.S. Senate overrides President Trump’s veto of the NDAA- the National Defense Authorization Act, patting themselves on the back as they do so.  The president vetoed the bill because it does nothing with the Section 230 the 45th president wanted overturned.  Chef Vladimir Gdansk writes in today’s post how the BIG TECH demon baby should be strangled in the crib now before it becomes so powerful that it is running the world (with the Chi-Coms being the main managing partner behind the scenes). 
  68. 2021 Friday F: Strange things occurring in Colorado what with the discovery of human remains in a pair of suitcases as are other human remains outside Prescott, Arizona.   Elsewhere, even though it’s against the mayor’s demands, the people of Philadelphia turn out to either participate in or to watch the big Philly Mummers parade.  Labeled a ‘protest,’ left-wing liberal government can do NOTHING to stop it.  FREEDOM OF SPEECH- PARDON JULIAN ASSANGE NOW!  Next, Portland, Oregon, police label a ‘protest’ a ‘riot’ when the mob goes berserk as darkness begins to fall.  (We believe the Chi-Coms are funding all of this mob mayhem).
  69. 2021 Friday G: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions #1621 with a $401 million jackpot: 08, 24, 53, 68, 69, and Mega 07.   Out of 186,678 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,000 apiece.  Congratulations!
  70. 2022 Saturday: We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover whatever the Chi-Coms, their allies Canada, Iran, Russia, North Korea, and other s-hole countries, as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good!

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing

[ii] We promoted the music of Country Joe and the Fish beginning on Tuesday, 16-July-2013 through Friday, 26-July-2013.  This was one of the greatest bands to explode out of San Francisco, California, during the Psychedelic 1960s.  Sadly, we failed to promote the music of Country Joe McDonald’s solo discography at the time.  We hope to rectify that at a later date.

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

[iv] Little would the people of New York City know that this POS far-left, forever-stoned mayor would destroy their city and that come 2020 with the Chi-Com-manufactured pandemic out of control people would flee the dying city.  GET this scumbag out of office!

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Anyone who watched President Donald J. Trump in action tonight in Cullman, Alabama, knows that it is a matter of time before he returns to the White House. The Democrats and the RINOs should be very, very afraid…viva Trump!

Watching the uprisings in the two biggest cities in Australia against their crazy government’s harsh lockdown orders is damned heartening folks. Free people will only take so much and when you have pushed them as far as they can go, the pushback becomes too powerful to stop.

  7. 2021 Saturday F: AFGHANISTAN CRISIS AND COLLAPSE NEWS- A new report says that back in June, senile Joe Biden told U.S. allies that Kabul could hold out for the foreseeable future.  It took the Taliban less than a week to overrun the country, arrive at the gates of Kabul, and then infest the city.   Joe Biden is also considering demanding public airlines to begin flying Afghan refugees wherever the government decides to send them, FREE.  Meanwhile, the evacuation out of Kabul is becoming problematic as ISIS is descending on the airport.  God know what could happen next, especially when the U.S. embassy staff still on scene is warning Americans NOT to come to Kabul for evacuation.  WTF?
  8. 2021 Saturday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Folks, today is Day No. 150 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xii] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 57 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $768,303,104.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $255,014,928,384.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,613,698.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,613,700.   (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Governor Doug Ducey, R-AZ, is extending the deployment of the Copper State’s National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border to help U.S. Border Patrol combat the invasion of illegal aliens.

  10. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- As various left-wing-controlled school districts in the Sunshine State continue trying to buck NO MASK MANDATE in the state’s schools, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis gives the schools an ultimatum: respect the ban or lose funding.  In other news, comedic hack Seth Meyers says the “GOP is lying about masks.”  Seth: The Red States are leading the way in recovering from the COVID crisis so STFU.  Elsewhere, the University of Virginia has disenrolled 238 students who have refused to get the Chi-Com Virus vaccines.  Good for the students.
  11. 2021 Saturday J: PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP NEWS- President Donald J. Trump endorsed former Silver State Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Republican, for U.S. senator.  Meanwhile, President Trump held a massive rally in Cullman, Alabama, to promote Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, is his bid for the open U.S. Senate seat when Senator Richard Shelby retires next year.  At least 15,000-20,000 people were inside and another 20,000-to-30,000 were outside.  Amazing.  President Trump also said that Joe Biden owes the American people an apology for the unnecessary chaos occurring in Afghanistan. 
  12. 2021 Saturday K: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Since “Chi-Com Joe” Biden is taking so much heat for the disaster occurring in Afghanistan, the senile regime leader cancels his trip home to Delaware for the weekend which means, next week, he will be combative, disrespectful, and unstable.  Going to be interesting to watch.   Speaking of the feeble dictator, his poll numbers continue tanking as new cases of the Wuhan Virus Crisis continue rising.
  13. 2021 Saturday L: POLITICAL NEWS I- Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, is sponsoring a bill with which to convene hearings on the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Meanwhile, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says the brief released by the Capitol Hill Police Department is a ‘panic, manic legal defense of unbridled secrecy surrounding the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.’  According to Mr. Fitton, there was a lot of communications going back and forth between U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district and higher-ups in the Capitol Hill Police Department.  Friends, we can make a pretty good guess as to what was going on and all of it was to launch a FALSE FLAG OPERATION to try to destroy President Donald J. Trump.  WE know.
  14. 2021 Saturday M: POLITICAL NEWS II- The Chamber of Commerce is running ads for moderate Democrats fighting to separate the ‘infrastructure bill’ from the ‘budget reconciliation’ BS bill House leader “Mumbles” Pelosi is fighting to shove through to bankrupt the country.  In other BS news, Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy signed a bill that preventing New Jersey state prisons from contracting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  What a POS.  Next, the U.S. State Department reports that it has been hit by a cyberattack.  Why are we not surprised?  Finally, former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan says ‘it’s not surprising that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘missing’ on Afghanistan.
  15. 2021 Saturday N: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS I- The U.S. Supreme Court- ever fearful of the Biden regime packing the body- has put a hold on lower court rulings to reinstate the “Remain in Mexico” policy for the millions of illegal aliens swamping the country all requesting ‘asylum.’
  16. 2021 Saturday O: MILESTONES AND PERSONAL INTEREST STORIES- Radio talk show host Phil Valentine lost his battle with COVID-19 today.  When the famed conservative came down with the ‘VID, liberals laughed and mocked him because he believed in personal choice when it came to wearing masks and/or getting the vaccine.  They are probably doing the jig now.  God bless you, Mr. Valentine.  Elsewhere, famed country music performer Tom T. Hall is dead at age 85.  Next, the Reverend Jesse Jackson and his wife entered the hospital today as both tested positive for the Kung Flu.
  17. 2021 Saturday P: NEW YORK STATE NEWS- Soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov declared a state of emergency today as Hurricane Henri approaches the region.  Reporters asked the loser as to WHY he didn’t hand off to Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul who will become the first female governor of the Empire State on Tuesday?  The ‘governor’ hemmed and hawed as to how he was doing ‘his duty.’  Loser, just go.  NOW.
  18. 2021 Saturday Q: TEXAS STATE NEWS-  The Texas voting laws now are on the fast track since the fugitive Democrats returned home after 33 days in Washington, D.C.  They fled there to stop the necessary quorum from being formed and only came home when the courts said that Texas law enforcement authorities could arrest them.
  19. 2021 Saturday R: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWS– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3588 what with a $10 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 12, 22, 36, 39, 59, and Mega 04.  Out of 91,589 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had five numbers BUT NO Mega for a prize of $33,286.  The winning ticket was sold at Texas Liquor in National City, CA 91950.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #874 with a jackpot of $290 million up for grabs: 16, 28, 36, 39, 59, and Powerball 04.  Out of 101,268 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR plus the Powerball for a prize of $18,305 apiece.

We haven’t had any Moron News lately but little Sandy Cortez, aka “The Fly,” aka “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” aka “AOC,” is blaming fossil fuel executives for flooded New York City subways.

190. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 09, 2021 UPDATE A:

We haven’t had any Moron News lately but today- thanks to AOC- we do.  Baby Girl, global warming ain’t flooding NYC subways, lack of proper maintenance is…  

  1. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 186,796,737 confirmed cases, +490,353, 4,034,388  confirmed deaths, +8,623 and 170,860,616 confirmed recoveries, +405,277.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,707,369 confirmed cases, UP 30,476 from yesterday’s reporting, 622,665 confirmed deaths, UP 452,[i] and 29,221,947 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,753.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]  
  2. 2021 Friday A: JOE BIDEN TO DONALD J. TRUMP COVID-19 DEATHS- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 304,305 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 154,890 deaths  
  3. 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: 3,831,120 confirmed cases, 63,869 confirmed deaths, and 2,078,140 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,400,937 confirmed cases, 38,132 confirmed deaths, and 2,237,268 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 38,265 confirmed cases, 519 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 456,938 confirmed cases, 6,041 confirmed deaths, and 227,331 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., American Samoa: they have 4 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 4 confirmed recoveries.[iii]    
  4. 2021 Friday C: FOREIGN COVID STATS OF THE DAY- Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 845,379 confirmed cases, 6,434 confirmed deaths, and 834,998 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Somalia, 143rd country on the list: 14,995 cases of the virus, 775 confirmed deaths and 7,252 confirmed recoveries.[iv]     
  5. 2021 Friday D: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,870.16, UP 448.23 points (+1.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,701.92, UP 142.13 points (+0.98%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,369.55, UP 48.73 points (+1.13%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $74.63 per barrel, +0.07 (+0.09%).  The price of GOLD is $1,808.60 per troy oz., -2.00 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $26.19 per troy ounce, -0.05 (-0.19%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,098.90 per troy oz, +3.20 (+0.29%) while the price of COPPER is $4.34 per pound, -0.00 (-0.08%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,809.34 per troy oz, +3.55 (+0.13%).[vi] The price of RHODIUM is $18,300.00 per troy oz., -600.00 (-3.17%).

[vii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.85.     In Vietnamese Dong, one greenback equals 23,000.00 and in West African CFA Franc, a buck equals 552.25 and in Yemeni Rial, one dollar equals 246.65 of theirs.[viii]        
  6. 2021 Friday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.308 per gallon, $3.012 in Florida, $4.040 in Hawaii, and $3.827 in Washington state.[ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Vermont: $3.046.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Burkina Faso: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,502,613,982,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  7. 2021 Friday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Here we are, Day No. 170 for the Biden regime to have usurped power from the rightful president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 108 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, aka the gibbering jackal, aka the screeching banshee, aka the tittering orangutan to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border.  Today is also 14 days since her first and last visit to the border and we don’t expect to see her back at the border until President Donald J. Trump visits the region again.
  8. 2021 Friday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II- Next, here are the stats for the illegal alien calamity for which the Biden regime bears 150-percent responsibility as presented by One America News channel: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the riffraff crossing the southern border: $570,053,440.  Next, here are the costs of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens this year (2): $207,693,398,016.  Next, (3) this is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year: 2,128,691.  Finally, (4) Total Number of illegal aliens estimated to be roaming the country: 36,128,692.  Note- this is a conservative effort as we at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have as far back as 2009 when our blog underwent founding believe the number then was between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the truer number of illegal aliens lurking in America’s shadows is closer to 75-100 million.  Time to round them up and to begin deporting this human fecal matter back to whence they came.   If we want to keep the brats, let’s put them into military academies and then use them to fight Third World regime change wars.
  9. 2021 Friday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- Following the brutal assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, at least two Americans are among the 17 suspected assassins scooped up by Haitian law enforcement.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse as they normally do in Haiti, Port-au-Prince is begging that the United States send them troops to help them quell the violence.  Time for ‘Papa Doc’ and the Ton-Ton Macoute to come back and restore order, i.e., maybe a little bit of cannibalism will get everyone back in line?
  10. 2021 Friday I: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Slobbering Joe Biden is pushing Russia’s Vladimir Putin to do something about hacking U.S. companies.  Next, decrepit old Joe has nominated failed Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti to become the next U.S. ambassador to India.  Next, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece told him to fire holdover from the Trump presidency, Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul after he refused to resign.  Apparently, Democrats and their allied hacks in labor unions and advocates for welfare despised the guy and he had to go.  Thus he did.  C’est la vie.
  11. 2021 Friday J: POLITICAL NEWS I- Democratic leaders are doing what they do best and that is threatening another long, hot summer of unmitigated violence.  I say, ‘we give it to them!’ Next, the first group to appear before House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘January 06, 2021 Select Committee’ will be Capitol Hill law enforcement officers when the panel begins.  These cops- under control of Speaker “Mumbles”- will be the first panel to dance to Pelosi’s jig.  Will they be the ones we have seen on film welcoming protesters and directing them as to where to go inside the U.S. Capitol on that day?  We expect the False Flag Operation orchestrated by the nonagenarian speaker and her cohorts will be evident for what it is: a load of hooey.
  12. 2021 Friday K: POLITICAL NEWS II- Lt. General Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., is endorsing Vernon Jones in his bid to unseat extremely unpopular RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, he reacted angrily to the BS flowing out of the White House regarding the state’s cleaning up of its voting system and said that ‘BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lying about the Peach State’s changes to its voting laws.’  Elsewhere, Congresswoman Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, is back to beating a dead horse, “Medicare for All.”  Enough already, “Pucker Puss.”
  13. 2021 Friday L: POLITICAL NEWS III- Former governor and UN ambassador under President Donald J. Trump, Nikki Haley, put forth two endorsements today (not that they matter) in two gubernatorial races in the nation.  First, in New Jersey, she has endorsed Republican Jack Ciattarelli and in Virginia, Republican Glenn Youngkin.  We shall see what happens.  Oh, President Donald J. Trump calls Virginia Democratic-Socialist candidate Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe a ‘political hack.’  Elsewhere, Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s rushed withdrawal from Afghanistan that it reignites the fears of the terrorists coming here.
  14. 2021 Friday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV- In other political news, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that ‘buyers of Hunter Biden’s ‘art’ will remain ANONYMOUS.  Folks, can you fathom what would happen if say Baron Trump was painting artworks and selling them for hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars?  Ye gods, folks, there would be so many investigations on Capitol Hill that all other work of government would come to a screeching halt so every moment of every waking day could be spent investigation such an outrage.  Yet, when crack-headed pedophile Hunter Biden does it, it’s NO big deal.  Retribution is coming folks and it’s going to hit the Democrats like a tidal wave beginning this September when California boots Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  The big day is September 14.  EVERYONE VOTE.
  15. 2021 Friday N: MORON NEWS I- We haven’t had any Moron News lately but little Sandy Cortez, aka “The Fly,” aka “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” aka “AOC,” is blaming fossil fuel executives for flooded New York City subways.  That’s like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, blaming the horrible forest fire in northern California on ‘global warming,’ aka ‘climate change,’ aka ‘extreme weather,’ or whatever other moniker they choose to put on it when it’s failure to clean the forests and to continue building water infrastructure so that when crises hit- like the ongoing drought- water is available to offset it.  Both Sandy Cortez and “Nazi” Newsom are MORONS.  At least, California is going to get him out on September 14 (unless, of course, the ‘fix is in’ which it might be).  As for AOC and her subways, Baby Girl- if I can call you that- the reason the subways are flooded is because NYC is spending money on social re-engineering projects instead of doing what must be done and that is to maintain and improve existing infrastructure.  God knows there’s more than enough tax dollars in both the city and in the Empire State.
  16. 2021 Friday O: FEDERAL AND STATE COURT NEWS- North Dakota is suing the Biden regime over its cancelation of new fossil fuel contracts on public lands.  Good.  Sue the heck out of them.
  17. 2021 Friday P: FAKE NEWS I- John King of CNN- pompous, conceited ass- is upset by Alabama GOP Senate candidate Jessica Taylor’s new ad in which a rocket ‘launches’ liberal ideas and values into space and she mispronounces the name of our ‘esteemed “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  The fake news-spouting hack called the ad ‘VILE!’  Ah, wah, wah, wah, John, STFU.  Ms. Taylor is in the running to replace retiring Senator Richard Shelby.
  18. 2021 Friday Q: PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP NEWS- President Donald J. Trump endorses former secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior Ryan Zinke in his bid to return to Congress from the great state of Montana.
  19. 2021 Friday R: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS / MEGA-MILLIONS DRAW- Stay tuned for the results of Mega Millions Draw #1675 with a $94 million jackpot on the line. Here are the numbers for tonight’s draw: 06, 37, 39, 41, 46, and Mega 17.  Out of 52,071 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $14,270.

. Meanwhile, in the fight for Dien Bien Phu in French Indochina, two American pilots- James B. McGovern- nicknamed “Earthquake McGoon” for a comic strip character of the time and his co-pilot Wallace Buford bit the dust today. McGovern- flying his 45th supply run to Dien Bien Phu with a full load of ammunition for his French allies suffered AA damage to the tail. The plane was unable to complete its mission and as the C-119 struggled to make it away from enemy troops clipped the side of a mountain flying low through a valley, flipped over, and blew up killing the crew. These were the first two American casualties of the Vietnam War.

  58. 2016 Friday: For the first time in four decades, the North Korean Workers Party convenes to discuss what to do next as the country faces increasing opposition and additional sanctions for its tests of nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles.  What to do, what to do?
  59. 2017 Saturday: In exchange for numerous Boko Haram suspects in custody, the Islamic terror groups releases 84 of their kidnapped schoolgirls.  Meanwhile, France bans fashion models that are little more than human scarecrows and demands labeling of digital image enhancement of all models so sensitive schmucks aren’t body shamed.
  60. 2018 Sunday: The number of homes destroyed by Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano reached 26, as scientists reported lava spewing more than 200 feet into the air.   Elsewhere, the Israeli Defense Forces come upon a group of Palestinian terrorists attempting to sabotage the border wall preventing terrorism from soiling Israeli land and in the ensuing melee shoots and kills three of the rogues and injures two others.  The Israelis also come across a Hamas border outpost and runs the buggers off.  However, Hamas releases video in which it claims they have breached the border wall and are infiltrating hundreds of jihadists into the world’s only Jewish state.  Track ‘em down and kill ‘em all.
  61. 2019 Monday: Surprisingly, Brunei Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah- after ‘global condemnation’- lifts the death penalty for gay sex and for adulterers.  (But you still can’t do it…or else).  Elsewhere, following President Donald J. Trump’s suggestion that he may impose billions of dollars of new tariffs on Chi-Com-made goods, the communist Chinese stock market topple by 5-percent by midday.  What to do, what to do?  (Note- the Chi-Coms must stop screwing us…)
  62. 2020 Wednesday: Word comes out today that Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York is going to hit every out-of-state medical professional who answered his call to come help the Empire State through its (self-imposed) COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with state income taxes.  Currently, there are 3,755,341 confirmed cases of Kung Flu worldwide, 263,831 confirmed deaths, and 1,245,415 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you, communist China.  In the United States, we have 1,259,604 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Flu, 74,577 confirmed deaths, and 170,859 confirmed recoveries.  In California, we have 59,698 confirmed cases and 2,439 confirmed deaths but no mention of recoveries.  In Hawaii, we have 626 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 588 confirmed recoveries while in Washington state, there are 15,905 confirmed cases and 870 confirmed deaths but like California, no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Curious.  Meanwhile, communist China claims 88,423 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Flu, 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Got to love their honesty (joke).
  63. 2020 Wednesday A: Long-time vocalist with the British rock band Bad Company[vi] (following the departure of original vocalist Paul Rodgers) Brian Howe died at age 66 in Lake Placid, Florida.  He served as the band’s vocalist from 1986 to 1993 and kept the band’s success alive.   Meanwhile, Venezuela announces that it is going to try the so-called ‘mercenaries’ captured a few days earlier by its armed forces in the nation’s civil courts, including the two supposed American ringleaders.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. will do ‘everything in its power to return U.S. citizens to the United States.’
  64. 2021 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On December 13, 1971, after working long hours in the studio and performing gigs, Badfinger returned with “Straight Up,” an album that should have been a massive commercial success but which the critics panned.  The album featured the same lineup of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals) as well as George Harrison who basically joined the band and added his signature slide guitar as well as other notables such as Leon Russell and Gary Wright.  Critics slammed the effort but the group had three producers on the album beginning with Geoff Emerick who did their previous effort followed by ex-Beatle George Harrison who then left the band to bring his Concert for Bangladesh to fruition followed by the Nazz’ Todd Rundgren so there were inconsistencies throughout the effort.  Still, the song “Day After Day” was a big seller and will forever be associated with this gifted band.  We hope you will seek it out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 595

82. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 23, 2021 UPDATE A:

DAY SIXTY-THREE OF THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

It would appear that the world will soon learn about the U.S. government’s files on Unidentified Flying (and Submersible) Objects- perhaps this will unite the world

  • 2021 Tuesday: YESTERDAY’S NEWS CATCHUP- Dare we say this but the name of the individual who shot up the King Sooper Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, goes by the name of Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa.  Allah Akbar, anyone?  Meanwhile, Robert Aaron Long, the perp who carried out the Atlanta Massage Parlors Massacre found himself in court charged with ‘malice murder’ and ‘aggravated assault.’  The poor bastard was trying to conquer a sex addiction, something he will be unable to conquer in prison as everyone knows what goes on in there.  Sad.  Elsewhere, in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, after seating 2 alternate jurors yesterday giving the trial a full 12 plus the two, seated a 15th today in case one of the other ones drops or is forced out for some as yet unanticipated reason. 
  • 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki could not answer a reporter’s question as to WHY illegal alien mobs receive better treatment than do National Guard members protecting Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.  National Guard members have had to sleep in frigid parking garages and have been served undercooked, raw, or poor quality food while illegals are pampered like Roman emperors.  Something is NOT right here.
  • 2021 Tuesday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II- Regarding the border mess, the Biden administration continues trying to deflect blame for the ongoing disaster onto President Donald J. Trump’s back.  Not working very well seeing as how President Trump handed Joe Biden a secure border.   Regarding the Biden Border Catastrophe, 40-percent in a recent poll blame Joe Biden 100-percent for the border catastrophe while 27-percent (the uneducated) blame President Donald J. Trump.  Another 12-percent blame Congress.  What everyone agrees on is the border must be secured NOW.  Speaking of the CRISIS, “Kooky Kamala” Harris says her administration received a f-up border from the previous administration and when asked if she was going to visit the border anytime soon, laughed it off.[i] 
  • 2021 Tuesday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III-  the Republicans are dangling the bait of amnesty for DACA recipients, i.e., the much-beloved DREAMers (yeah, right- deport all of them NOW) in exchange for the Democrats agreeing to fix the broken farmworker visa system.  You know, we used to have the Bracero Program which allowed temporary workers to cross to and from the southern border to work in the United States and then to return home after the season ended.  What is so frigging difficult about this?  Just fix it and stop the tidal wave of illegals rampaging through our country.  Enough already!  Meanwhile, we learn that only 13-percent of family units crossing the southern border are turned back into Mexico.  Wow.
  • 2021 Tuesday D: LAW ENFORCEMENT/LEGAL NEWS- Attorney Sidney Powell files a motion to dismiss suit in court to have the bogus lawsuit filed by the (allegedly) corrupt Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  These scumbags filed a frivolous lawsuit against all those who pointed out the fact that Dominion coupled with Hugo Chavez’s Smartmatic software STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election and threw it to decrepit old Joe Biden.   In other news, Regent University hosted a lengthy symposium on how the election fraud in 2020 occurred what with Michelle Bachman and Peter Navarro providing reams of evidence showing the crime committed before our eyes.  Elsewhere, the Massachusetts attorney general seeks to vacate thousands of drug convictions that were handed out using lab ‘evidence’ with which law enforcement tampered so as to achieve convictions.
  • 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. POLITICAL NEWS-  Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district announced today that he is running to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Senator Richard Shelby.  Good luck, Mo!  Meanwhile, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, blasts the Biden tax plan as being little more than a wealth redistribution scheme.  Elsewhere, by a vote of 68-29, the U.S. Senate confirms the nomination of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to become the next U.S. Secretary of the Labor Department.  From what we hear, the guy is a labor hack.  In other news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district says that ‘efforts to expel me will fail.’  Next, Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, says she won’t confirm anymore WHITE nominees sent to the U.S. Senate by the Biden administration until some Asian-Americans begin getting nominated for high posts- like what?  Ambassador to Micronesia?  Finally, Joe Biden says we can ban assault weapons.  Go for it.
  • 2021 Tuesday F: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS I-  Economist Steve Moore pointed out today how the $1,400 stimulus checks sent to, uh, not just American taxpayers but to felons in prison, illegal aliens, and even savvy foreigners could end up costing $11,000 each.  Not good.  Meanwhile, U.S. corporations are urging elected Democrats to push through the DREAMER bill so as to get all this cheap labor employed while American workers are left without.   However, corporations may not get the last laugh as U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is promising to boost the U.S. corporate tax rate back to where it was- if not higher- than before President Donald J. Trump was in office.  Corporate heads, DON’T you wish you had supported the 45th president when you had the opportunity?   
  • 2021 Tuesday G: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS II- In other PANDERING NEWS, the city of Evanston, Illinois, becomes the first city in the United States to provide reparations to black Americans.  Wait, isn’t Evanston a NORTHERN CITY where slavery did not exist?  WTF is up with that?  (Note- NO longer can Democrats in Evanston use ‘slavery’ as a club to bash the heads of their political enemies.  NEVER).  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s economic advisers are warning fellow Democrats to prepare for an additional $3 trillion in spending, much of which will go into HIGH-SPEED RAIL?  WTF?  This has never worked in the United States nor will it.  Next, Microsoft is in talks to buy instant messaging app, Discord.   Finally, Regal Cinemas plans a grand reopening across the country beginning on April 02, 2021.
  • 2021 Tuesday H: FOREIGN AND OVERSEAS NEWS I- Following a complaint, the Federal Communications Commission- the FTC- is looking into allegations that two communist Chinese telecommunications companies, China Central Television and CGTN, for inserting propaganda into its broadcasts as well as showing coerced confessions by prisoners who have been mistreated.   Meanwhile, Russian officials say that Joe Biden has repeatedly rejected any open talks with Moscow so that mutual problems can be addressed and grievances aired.  That’s Joe for you.  Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s going to address a virtual summit of European leaders this upcoming Thursday just as he is supposed to address the American people via a press conference.  (Note- we expect neither will occur or if they do, they will come off as Max Headroom with multiple takes, Deep Fakes, and hidden earpieces.  What a country).  Moving on, Dems are pressuring Joe Biden to ease sanctions on communist Venezuela.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia is proposing a ceasefire with the Houthi rebels.  Finally, Israeli voters are taking another shot at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 
  • 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 123,924,888 confirmed cases, +408,189, 2,727,640 (down from yesterday’s figure), confirmed deaths, +7,937, and 70,320,511 confirmed recoveries, +344,632.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,104,069 confirmed cases, up 49,466 from yesterday’s reporting, 548,613 confirmed deaths, UP 442, and 117,037,711 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. 
  • 2021 Tuesday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,146 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Centers for Disease Control are hammering AstraZeneca for using outdated data in their correlation of vaccine results.  Say it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, a new study suggests that low-dose aspirin can ward off the coronavirus.  Elsewhere, Pfizer is developing a pill with which to ward off the ‘VID.  (In other healthcare news, Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AK, has signed a new antiabortion law into being, one that will challenge Roe v. Wade in the courts).   (Other News II- the teachers’ unions are pushing back on the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing: six feet or no teach).
  • 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,646,171 confirmed cases, 57,799 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,912 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 358,762 confirmed cases, 5,232 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the Northern Marianas: currently, they have 158 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,764 confirmed cases, 6,109 confirmed deaths, and 807,653 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Philippines, home of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos (and her legendary shoe collection): 677,653 cases of the virus, 12,992 confirmed deaths and 578,461 confirmed recoveries.

  • 2021 Monday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.612 in Hawaii, and $3.320 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,085,852,256,420 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness.  IF the Chinese are going to become the masters of the world, well, what can we do except to join the band.
  • 2021 Tuesday N: UNIDENTIFIED FLYING (AND SUBMERSIBLE) OBJECT NEWS- It would appear that the American people will soon learn the truth about UFOs although whether anyone will go the distance and inform us that the persons operating these crafts are not of this world is unclear.  Louis Elizondo was on Fox News this morning discussing the phenomena that has vexed millions around the world since the Roswell crash in New Mexico shortly after the end of World War II.  Elizondo provides three explanations as to the origins of these craft.  First, that they are BLACK OPERATIONS vehicles that only certain governmental organizations are aware of while the second is that the technology could be that of our enemies.  The third is that they come from somewhere else although no one wants to definitively state they come from somewhere NOT of this Earth such as interdimensional or interplanetary or interstellar origins.  To be a UFO, there must be at least one of five observable characteristics such as (1) the ability to accelerate almost instantaneously (2) hypersonic speeds (3) low observability (4) the ability to operate on various planes such as air to water, water to air, and whatever else observers might see and (5) the ability to move sans any form of wings, engine exhausts, and other characteristics associated with earthly flight.
  • 2021 Tuesday O: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS II- North Korea sent a message to Joe Biden today in which, Kim Jong Un- the Great Leader II- fired off a barrage of short-range missiles into the sea this past weekend as a message to the White House that the Democratic Republic of North Korea does not like Joe Biden firing up the U.S.-South Korean military exercises.  The Department of Defense said today that ‘North Korea threatens the entire region.’  Wow.  We don’t think Chairman Kim likes Joe Biden very much.  It will be interesting to see what comes of this.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration still won’t say that labeling Vladimir Putin a ‘killer’ was the wrong thing to do.  Elsewhere, China lashes out at U.S. allies in a bid to thwart the agenda of “Joe Biden.”  The People’s Republic of China began slapping reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for the pressure the ‘Biden administration’ and the EU are slapping onto Beijing for mistreating the citizens of Hong Kong, Tibet, and Uighur Muslims.  China says these are internal issues like mistreatment of minorities in the U.S. is an American internal issue.  Joe- the AICPENDBLOG.COM recommends YOU don’t start something with the PRC you can’t finish or win.
  • 2021 Tuesday P: Stick around for the results of the Mega Millions Draw #1644 tonight what with a $122 million pot on the line for some lucky winner(s). Here are the numbers: 12, 23, 35, 38, 55, and Mega 11.  Out of 80,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,340 apiece.
  • 2021 Tuesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS FOREIGN/OVERSEAS III- We overlooked this story this morning but in a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, a massive fire broke out killing 560 people outright, thousands more injured, and causing the disappearances of another 400.  The U.N. says that 45,000 people have been displaced.   The Bangladeshis have given shelter to more than 1 million of their fellow Muslims whom the anti-Muslim government in neighboring Burma drove out back in 2017 via a concerted effort to kill all of them.  Next, even though Saudi Arabia proposed a ceasefire with the Houthi rebel scum in Yemen, the Houthis conducted an attack on Abha International Airport with a drone loaded up with explosives.   Had the ceasefire gone into effect, it would have permitted the reopening of the Sana’a airport in Yemen so that relief supplies could flow into the starving, impoverished civilians in the country.  Instead, we think the Saudis had better raze all Houthi-controlled areas. 
  • 2021 Tuesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS NATIONAL:  A 14th woman filed a lawsuit against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson accusing him of exposing himself and performing lewd acts on them.  The quarterback denies all allegations and investigation is ensuing.  Unlike Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, we believe that Watson is facing false accusations and we will wait to see where the evidence takes us.   Elsewhere, the ‘Biden administration’ announces all official documents will bear the moniker ‘Biden-Harris Administration.’  Speaking of old Joe, he says he is going to take America’s guns away since a crazed Syrian refugee POS shot up the Boulder, Colorado, grocery store killing 10 people, all of whom were WHITE.  No one seems to be shedding tears for them but oh, those poor Asian hookers- uh, excuse me, masseuses- in Atlanta, that is an entirely different story.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, says ‘making Washington, D.C. a state is a matter of racial equity seeing as how there are loads of black folks living there.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UFO came back on September 26, 2006 with its next studio album, “The Monkey Puzzle,” a superb rocker to be sure flavored with their unique blend of rock-and-roll.  The band was close to being original in that it featured Phil Mogg (vocals), Pete Way (bass/vocals), Paul Raymond (guitars/keyboards/vocals), Andy Parker (drums), and Vinnie Moore (guitars).  If you know anything about this band, you know they are one of the survivors from the glorious days- 1960s and 1970s- UFO coming along at the end of the ‘60s and continuing until modern times which puts them into a category with only the Rolling Stones and part-time Who.  Oh, yeah, Deep Purple remains with us, too, and years ago at the Google site, we spent close to a year presenting their music.  Thus, we are proud to share UFO with our WordPress.com fans.  Join us and celebrate, too!   You can find this album at Amazon.com as well as at Discogs, AllMusic, and other online venues…

  56. 2016 Friday: Fears rise in Britain over a sudden search in illegal immigrants flooding across the English Channel into their country what with
    France putting up a new camp for refugees from the Middle East, Central Asia, and sub-Saharan Africa.  Maybe you folks should never have built the Chunnel?
  57. 2017 Sunday: A terrorist conducts an attack on an Istanbul nightclub killing at least 39 people and wounding at least another 69 via firearms.  Meanwhile, other terror attacks are going on across Iraq with a car bombing in al-Qadisiya claiming the lives of at least seven people and wounding another 17.  Ah, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam.  When is it going to undergo a ‘reformation’ so it can civilize itself?

Trump for working against the commander-in-chief.  His replacement- Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M.

  61. 2021 Friday: Ever the “optimist,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says, “Trump will be dead in a few days” as relations between his rat-shit country and the United States continue to deteriorate.  Meanwhile, the Iranians chant ‘DEATH TO AMERICA’ on the one-year anniversary of the whacking of Quds Force commander General Qassim Soleimani.  We say, “NUKE THEM!”  We should nuke the scumbags because once again, they are mining the Persian Gulf as oil tankers leaving Iraq find the explosive devices floating in the sea lanes.
  62. 2021 Friday A: Once again, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate blocks the $2,000 relief checks for the American people.   Here’s the thing that is angering the American people: the COVID-19 Relief Bill directs $174 billion to the American people and $762 billion to various other countries around the world.  This is insane.  What is even worse is that part of the $174 billion for the American people also includes $600 PLUS another $1,200 per illegal alien they did not get in the first stimulus.  The time is coming- so says Chef Vladimir Gdansk- that the Second Revolution coming will resemble more the French Revolution than the American Revolution.  People are angry that government NO LONGER REPRESENTS US!
  63. 2021 Friday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 83,579,767 confirmed cases, +585,547, 1,820,923, confirmed deaths, +10,563, and 47,162,055 confirmed recoveries, +268,693.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,212,820 confirmed cases, up 302,146 from yesterday’s reporting, 349,397 confirmed deaths, UP 4,520, and 9,136,262 confirmed recoveries, UP 379,112.
  64. 2021 Friday C: 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: 2,307,706 confirmed cases, 25,971 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,644 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,064 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia where they have a Ku Klux Klan-lover for a governor: currently, they have 354,766 confirmed cases, 5,081 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 426,769 confirmed cases, 3,338 confirmed deaths, and 378,038 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2021 Friday D: The E.U. and the Chi-Coms continue working on their ‘deal’ to open markets in the communist nation to European investment.   Next, the Philippines block travel from the U.S. following detection of the new strain of the Chi-Vi in the United States.   Elsewhere, the entire African Continent (26 states as of today with most of the others soon to join)- with the exception of Eritrea- enters into the massive free trade zone it had previously set up making it the largest free trade zone since the creation of the World Trade Organization.  Meanwhile, both the U.S. State Department and the people of Hong Kong demand the release of the so-called “Hong Kong 12,” wrongly imprisoned by the thugs in Beijing.
  66. 2021 Friday E: Georgia voters come out for the final day of early voting in the two U.S. Senate run-off race- 3 million people have early voted so far.  Meanwhile the U.S. Senate overrides President Trump’s veto of the NDAA- the National Defense Authorization Act, patting themselves on the back as they do so.  The president vetoed the bill because it does nothing with the Section 230 the 45th president wanted overturned.  Chef Vladimir Gdansk writes in today’s post how the BIG TECH demon baby should be strangled in the crib now before it becomes so powerful that it is running the world (with the Chi-Coms being the main managing partner behind the scenes). 
  67. 2021 Friday F: Strange things occurring in Colorado what with the discovery of human remains in a pair of suitcases as are other human remains outside Prescott, Arizona.   Elsewhere, even though it’s against the mayor’s demands, the people of Philadelphia turn out to either participate in or to watch the big Philly Mummers parade.  Labeled a ‘protest,’ left-wing liberal government can do NOTHING to stop it.  FREEDOM OF SPEECH- PARDON JULIAN ASSANGE NOW!  Next, Portland, Oregon, police label a ‘protest’ a ‘riot’ when the mob goes berserk as darkness begins to fall.  (We believe the Chi-Coms are funding all of this mob mayhem).
  68. 2021 Friday G: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions #1621 with a $401 million jackpot: 08, 24, 53, 68, 69, and Mega 07.   Out of 186,678 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,000 apiece.  Congratulations!
  69. 2021 Friday H:  We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover whatever the Chi-Coms, their allies Canada, Iran, Russia, North Korea, and other s-hole countries, as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good! Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions…

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY JANUARY 01, 2021

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

ENDNOTES:


[i] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing

[ii] We promoted the music of Country Joe and the Fish beginning on Tuesday, 16-July-2013 through Friday, 26-July-2013.  This was one of the greatest bands to explode out of San Francisco, California, during the Psychedelic 1960s.  Sadly, we failed to promote the music of Country Joe McDonald’s solo discography at the time.  We hope to rectify that at a later date.

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

[iv] Little would the people of New York City know that this POS far-left, forever-stoned mayor would destroy their city and that come 2020 with the Chi-Com-manufactured pandemic out of control people would flee the dying city.  GET this scumbag out of office!
