  61. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  62. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  63. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  64. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.
  65. 2012 Monday: The trial of former senator and vice-presidential candidate John Edwards for misuse of campaign funds gets underway in North Carolina.  Elsewhere, famed bassist Chris Ethridge who played with the Flying Burrito Brothers[xi] (1968-69 / 1974-76 / 1990-93)—among other bands—lost his battle with pancreatic carcinoma on this date.  He died in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi, at the age of 65.  Next, the Iranians are angry because a malware attack has hammered the National Iranian Oil Company.  Sucks to be you.  Finally, the White House is launching an investigation into its advance staff in the wake of the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
  66. 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
  67. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  68. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  69. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, which would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  70. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University, and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  71. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  72. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease, but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  73. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland. 
  74. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 144,804,485 confirmed cases, +799,197, 3,073,868  confirmed deaths, +11,781, and 83,220,681 confirmed recoveries, +650,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,717,457 confirmed cases, UP 48,336 from yesterday’s reporting, 584,839 confirmed deaths, UP 10,421, (figures include today’s and yesterday’s)[xii] and 119,056,391 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.[xiii] 
  75. 2021 Friday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 260,967 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  76. 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: 3,727,713 confirmed cases, 61,261 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,196,502 confirmed cases, 34,759 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,977 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Idaho, one of the few sane places left in the country: they have 186,081 confirmed cases, 2,029 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]   
  77. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,892 confirmed cases, 6,346 confirmed deaths, and 829,424 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian nations on the globe: 247,989 cases of the virus, 3,496 confirmed deaths and 185,107 confirmed recoveries.[xv]

  79. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.981 per gallon, $2.802 in Florida, $3.760 in Hawaii, and $3.401 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $2.822.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,205,305,997,186 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  80. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.   Elsewhere, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, said that the illegal alien brats are in OBAMA-BIDEN CAGES and NOT Trump cages.  
  81. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden News I– Drooling Joe Biden found himself for being mocked as at his recent ‘climate summit’ with world leaders via ZOOM, he was the ONLY leader wearing a mask.  Ye gods, Joe, what the hell is wrong with you?  Dimwit.   Anyhow, when Joe concluded his summit, he said with gasping vigor, “We’re gonna do this.”  Big flipping deal, Joe.  Do it to yourself, NOT to us.  Next, totally whacked White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki crowed that ‘Joe Biden will be the first president to create 1,000,000 jobs in his first 100 days.’  Oh, please, stop it, we are laughing as hard as we can already.  Enough, dimwit!  Moving on, Joe Biden told Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he is going to call ‘the Armenian massacre a GENOCIDE.’  As it was, the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE the Ottoman Turks carried out against the Christian Armenian minority in their country during World War I.  (Note- it would appear that via this action, Joe is pushing yet another dictatorial nation into the Chi-Com-Russian-Iranian-North Korean-Cuban-Venezuelan camp for good.  Good going there, Joe).
  82. 2021 Friday H: Energy News / Infrastructure News– Much to the horror of liberals, 73-percent of Americans recently polled believe that fossil fuels and natural gas will be with us for decades to come.  Yes, people are interested in renewable energy but until it becomes cost effective and dependable, no one wants this crap.[xxii]  Meanwhile, a new report says that a new proposed gasoline tax is meeting with resistance on BOTH sides of the political aisle.   After the GOP put forth a sensible and less costly infrastructure bill and the left slapped it down, Senator Johnson said it’s all ‘partisanship and not concern for the American people.’  Speaking of infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., says that ‘Joe Biden should concentrate on CONVENTIONAL infrastructure’ and not this WOKE bulls**t.
  83. 2021 Friday I: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– Early today, Democrats began suing the state of Arizona for permitting the election integrity audit to begin and continue.  Later in the day, a judge called a temporary halt to the procedures for some inexplicable reason, but then permitted it to proceed late in the day.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that his team is advancing election integrity efforts across the country.  Elsewhere, New Hampshire passed SB 43 with which to carry out a forensic audit of the voting machines.  Citing the Windham Incident, in this one location, 1,143 ballots for Republicans were magically flipped over to Democrats.  These investigations are necessary.    
  84. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, RINO, is slamming the inclusion of Iran- perhaps one of the greatest persecutors of women and girls- onto the U.N. Status of Women Commission.  What a load of feculent crap to put a scumbag nation such as Iran on a global body such as the one mentioned above.   Meanwhile, following Tony Perkins- of Family Research Council fame- calling for a boycott on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chi-Coms now are trying to cancel him.  Permanently.    Elsewhere, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny is going to end his hunger strike.  Finally, Japan is declaring a state of emergency around Tokyo and three other areas due to surging numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  85. 2021 Friday K: Mass Shooting News / Law Enforcement News–  We learned that late last night in San  Diego, California, a mass shooting left one person dead and at least four injured.  We learned today that NBC once again rejiggered audio from the recent police shooting of Ma’ Khia Bryant who was in the act of stabbing another girl with an eight-inch blade.  As they did with George Zimmerman’s 911 call regarding Trayvon Martin, they edited and fabricated the police call so as to suit their narrative.  Folks, these lying scumbag networks should be fined and/or stripped of their broadcast licenses.   Meanwhile, Nicolas Cruz, the POS who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida back on February 14, 2018, in what we have dubbed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018- could go on trial for his life as early as this September.  (Note- we thought he had already copped to a deal).   Elsewhere, an alternate juror in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin says ‘yes, indeed, the mob intimidate us into finding the way we did.’  This verdict is going to get tossed.  Count on it.
  86. 2021 Friday L: Social Media And Stupid People News– After that big POS Los Angeles Lakers dimwit LeBron “Fecal Matter” James put up his most recent tweet about the cop who shot violent teen Ma’ Kia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, a few days ago, President Donald J. Trump says the turd should ‘focus on his NBA career rather than presiding over the destruction of the National Basketball League.’  LeBron James clearly learned nothing in school and worse, he is down on his knees in front of Xi Jinping doing the nasty for him every day.  C***sucker.  Speaking of LeBron and social media, millions are asking WHY Twitter banned President Donald J. Trump for ‘inciting violence’ while all the while permitting King James to make threats of his own via the platform?  Why?
  87. 2021 Friday M: COVID-19 News / Updates– Today, 33 colleges said that in order to return to classes in the next semester, ALL students will have to show proof they have been vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – with the help of Border Guru Stephen Miller- is suing the Biden administration over its hypocrisy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of illegals without testing them for the ‘VID while demanding states continue the bogus lockdowns the federal government imposes on them (if it can get away with doing it).  Moving on, the U.S. will now permit the use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations to proceed.  However, this comes on the heels of the CDC investigation yet another woman’s death- someone in her fifties- following vaccination for the Chi-Vi.
  88. 2021 Friday N: U.S. Government News– Ahead of their planned pull out, U.S. military is packing up its military hardware in Afghanistan while leaving non-military supplies such as office equipment and appliances behind for the Taliban to put to effective use.   In other truly embarrassing news, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, a true milquetoast if one ever existed, is going to permit U.S. diplomatic missions abroad to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag at the same level with the U.S. flag around the world.  Gee whiz, paint another target on our backs, will you?  Meanwhile, the Biden White House is nominating a ‘conservationist’- Tracy Stone-Manning- to lead the Public Lands Bureau.  Another left-wing loser to be sure.  Finally, SpaceX Dragon capsule blasted off today carrying FOUR American astronauts to the International Space Station.
  89. 2021 Friday O: January 06, 2021, Storming The Capitol / Capitol Hill Riots / False Flag Operations News– It appears that Capitol Hill law enforcement has grown fatigued by lying Democrats’ narratives on what happened on that fateful day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrated the ranks of Trump supporters and then set in motion the largest FALSE FLAG operation seen in the history of our country.  They are pushing back on recent claims by unnamed Democrats that they showed ‘bias towards the Trump supporters.’  They say they did not.   Elsewhere, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is demanding a FULL ACCOUNTING of the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick, someone whom we just learned died from natural causes and did not- we repeat, did NOT- have his head bashed in with a fire extinguisher as liberal fake news media and Democrat politicians have long claimed.   Tell us the truth.
  90. 2021 Friday P: State News–  Florida’s Supreme Court stopped a bid with which to legalize marijuana in the Sunshine State.  Good.  We have enough stupid people already.   Elsewhere, in California, Caitlyn Jenner makes it official- she is running for the governor’s job in the recall of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and some like that overweight, wig-wearing Joy Behar on “The View” are upset.  She was so upset, she kept using the wrong pronouns when speaking of Ms. Jenner which in the liberal WOKE world is a major faux pas.  Yet, liberals routinely get away with NOT doing as they say everyone else should be doing.  What a farce.  Next, in New York City late last night/early this morning, did their best to deface a monument in Central Park, one built to commemorate the loss of 260 U.S. Navy sailors who were killed when the battleship USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, Cuba, on February 15, 1898, the main event that propelled the U.S. into war with Spain.  Police arrested some of the rioters, but we are sure they left the slammer within hours of their arrest.
  91. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new study on elected officials who are the child of elected officials says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, vote to the LEFT of their parents when they were in office.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, said he ‘endorses Senators Murkowski and her RINO buddy, Susan Collins, of Maine.   Next, survivors of the Steve Scalise shooting criticize yesterday’s findings by the FBI that James Hodgkinson who shot up the Republican team preparing for the annual House baseball game back on June 14, 2017, did so because he wanted to die by suicide by cop.  This was the FBI finding we received yesterday and all we can say is that FBI Director Christopher Wray is full of fecal matter.
  92. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that New York state’s planned payments of $15,000 or more to illegal aliens is ‘unacceptable.’  It’s unacceptable when Americans need help, require salvation from all the Chi-Com Virus lockdowns and restrictions, and liberal left-wing government would rather care for INVADERS than for its own people.   Next, Kimberly Guilfoyle endorses former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens in his U.S. Senate bid.   Moving on, Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, vetoed a bill limiting gun restrictions.  He vetoed a bill that LIMITS restrictions on guns in the Natural State, for Christ’s Sake.   The man has demonstrated he is little more than a RINO.
  93. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Apparently, the President Trump 2020 Campaign left an unpaid view in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a $211,000 bill, one they are sending to collections.  Sounds like bull crap but then- we know how it is.  Speaking of President Trump, he may be leaving Florida to spend the summer at his New Jersey golf club.   Speaking of Florida, the okays a bill banning abortions based on disability.  Meanwhile, we learn that the United States Postal Service- the USPS, for Christ’s Holy Sake!- is now doing dirty work for the Biden regime by spying on conservative Americans.  Man, they must have amassed a humongous dossier on the AICPENDBLOG.COM by now.  What the hell is the postal service doing behaving like the Gestapo?  Has Stamps.com hurt them this much that they must take on jobs that have NOTHING to do with their daytime jobs?
  94. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News I– After a violent summer last year in \Minneapolis, Minnesota, BLACK-OWNED businesses in the city say the ‘city has abandoned them.’  These poor people watched Black Lives Matter and Antifa and all the hateful white punks (especially the banshees) screaming and rioting, looting, robbing, raping, and burning, and the damned Twin Cities need to do something to get them back on their feet!  What the hell does it take?  Where the hell is Patrice Cullors and all her millions of dollars?  Where is Joe Biden?  HELP these people.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post was slammed earlier today for their disgraceful ‘fact-checking’ on Senator Tim Scott’s ‘from the cotton fields to Congress’ statement awhile back.  Leftists are scumbags, what more can one say?  In other whack-job news, Climate Czar John F. Kerry says that the administration is exploring a BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX that will slap additional taxes, i.e., tariffs, on nations with weaker climate policies.  Folks, it’s time to make up NICE with Russia or China and seek asylum.  These people are cray-cray.
  95. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1653: 04, 28, 29,30, 60, and Mega 25.  Stay tuned for news on the winners… Out of 111,596 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $14,862 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,023 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,268 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 458 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  66. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS I– Various news agencies on the left (i.e., Fake News) are trying to clean up what Joe Biden said yesterday regarding all the restrictions he is going to slap on lawful gun owners.  Even CNN had to lay out the fact that the infamous ‘gun show loophole’ does not exist due to all the rules and regulations emplaced upon such events.  Folks, Joe Biden has NO clue what he is doing, saying, and damned sure thinking.  What the gun-grabber Democrats fail to understand is the American people are NOT going to hand over their firearms, their ammunition, and their accessories.  None of us are.  Federal law enforcement is going to find themselves in similar situations as the British did in the months leading up to the Revolutionary War, shooters behind every bush, every tree, on every rooftop, in cars, in back alleys, everywhere so any attempt at entering our homes and taking our firearms away is going to meet with disaster.  As Charlton Heston once said, “You can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.”  Remember this: there are MORE of us than there are of THEM.  Joe Biden did mumble that gun violence (which is committed by criminals, Joe) is a ‘public health epidemic or crisis’ or whatever it was he said.  Joe- tell blue state governors and mayors to turn the cops loose and go after illegal gun owners and crimes.
  67. 2021 Friday A: JOE BIDEN NEWS II– After Hunter Biden went on Jimmy Kimmel and told the host that the ‘laptop’ issue is little more than a red herring, news comes out that the laptop the computer store owner handed over to the FBI is indeed Hunter Biden’s laptop.  Hunter Biden who loves indulging in drugs and narcotics and sleeping with hookers and skanks and also has problems disposing of firearms properly should be doing time in federal prison.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s budget contains $131 million with which to combat domestic terrorism.[iii]
  68. 2021 Friday B: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Antonio Mayorkas is meeting with leaders and immigration advocates in Texas as the illegal alien invasion continues ramping up.  NO one seems to want to do what must be done.[iv]   Elsewhere, the Department of Homeland Security reports 19,000 illegal alien brats crossed the southern border in the month of March alone.  The cost to the American taxpayers per week is reported to be $60 million to house just the illegal alien minors.  People, load them on empty jetliners, fly them into San Salvador and Guatemala City and let THEM deal with getting them back to the parents.  Enough is flipping enough.  Next, Biden’s Border Coordinator Roberta Jacobson is stepping down from her post.  Apparently, it’s too much for her.
  69. 2021 Friday C: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II– the White House says there’s no basis to close illegal alien holding pens along the southern border over rumors of sexual abuse and rape.  His Health and Humans Services Secretary Xavier “Abort them All” Becerra is down there investigating the allegations.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration is begging non-governmental business to help mitigate the southern border crisis.  Hmmm, sounds like MORE bulls**t.  Elsewhere, Congressman Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the border crisis.’   Finally, Congressman Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district says that ‘Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris are terrified of visiting the border’ and seeing the horrendous misery they have caused.  Shame on them.
  70. 2021 Friday D: COVID-19 NEWS– the United States is sending three field hospitals to Argentina to help them deal with their COVID-19 pandemic problems.  Elsewhere, a mass vaccination site in Colorado using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine[v] had to stop vaccinations after inoculating 1,700 people as 11 became extremely ill and 2 ended up in the hospital.   Meanwhile, after Joe Biden labeled Texas political leaders for behaving like Neanderthals over their lifting of Joe’s demands for a mask mandate, COVID-19 is still under control.  In other shocking news, 246 fully-vaccinated residents in the Wolverine State tested positive for the ‘VID and 3 of them died.  Whoa.
  71. 2021 Friday E: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS– Joe Biden (well, the voice in his ear) is calling for the establishment of a commission to investigate expanding the U.S. Supreme Court as well as ‘maybe emplacing term limits on the sitting justices.’  Sounds rather like the plan “Prancing Pete” Buttigieg- now the U.S. secretary of the Department of Transportation pushed during the primary campaign.   
  72. 2021 Friday F: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I–  the United Kingdom and nations are around the world are mourning the death of Prince Philip- the Duke of Edenborough and Queen Elizabeth II’s husband.   Prince Philip was two months shy of hitting the century mark.  Many are pondering as to whether the person formerly known as Prince Harry and his boss Meghan Markle will attend the funeral.  IF we were the royal family, we’d tell Harry, “You can come but leave that nutty bitch at home.” In other news that broke late last night, Joe Biden is considering sending some U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea- a Russian flipping lake, for God’s sake– to make a show of force to Vladimir Putin who will soon be invading the Ukraine.  Also, the Chi-Coms said to the Biden administration that ‘if U.S. warships continue passing through the Straits of Taiwan, we could soon see Chinese naval assets patrolling the Gulf of Mexico.’  Wow.  Joe, Joe, Joe, WTF are you doing?  GOP senators say, ‘Joe Biden’s defense bill sends the wrong message to our enemies and allies.’

  74. 2021 Friday H: DEMOCRATIC PARTY NEWS– The Wisconsin State Supreme Court rebuffs Republican lawmakers and won’t let them clean up the voter rolls.[vi]  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, says it’s time for the nation to ‘stop with the divisive politics.’  Joe- it’s YOUR party doing all the s**t talking.  Elsewhere, James Carville is expressing dismay that the Democratic Party is embracing identity politics and cancel culture.  Next, a recent report says that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was considering retirement before Donald J. Trump won the presidency in 2016.
  75. 2021 Friday I: REPUBLICAN PARTY NEWS– Senator Thom Tillis, R-N.C., underwent surgery for his prostate cancer diagnosis.  No word on when he will return to his duties.  Next, former Senator Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, slams the ‘disinformation campaign’ the Democrat Party is running against the new election laws in the Peach State.  Kelly, everyone knows the Democrats are LIARS.  Elsewhere, we learn that a Super PAC is backing Alaska machine RINO Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski which they are touting will defeat President Donald J. Trump’s plans to oust her.  This is going to be fun.  Murkowski must be humiliated and booted from office like the scurrilous POS she is.  Speaking of RINO garbage, former House Speaker and all-around loser John Boehner says in his new book (big deal) that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears full responsibility for the Capitol Hill Riots on January 06, 2021.’  Most now understand that those ‘riots’ were the biggest FALSE FLAG OPERATION ever run in this country’s politics.   Mr. Boehner: “F**K YOU.”
  76. 2021 Friday J: TECH AND BUSINESS NEWS– Netflix acquires streaming rights to all upcoming Sony movies.  Meanwhile, due to the massive tax hike plan in New York state, numerous businesses such as Jet Blue, J.P. Morgan, Chase, Citibank, and numerous others are all abandoning the state ahead of the promised tax increases.  Imagine if Tallahassee, Tampa, or Miami became the NEW financial capital of the world?  Empire State Democrats should be wanting to lynch Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov because once lost, those cash cows will NEVER return.[vii]  
  77. 2021 Friday K: ECONOMIC NEWS– McDonald’s is hiring for new positions across the country with 25,000 alone in the Lone Star State.   Meanwhile, Impossible Foods is in talks to go public sometime within the next several months through an IPO.  The company is valued at $4 billion.  Elsewhere, while under review, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is permitting the Dakota Access Pipeline to remain in operation no matter what sniveling activists say.  Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos and Amazon are dancing the jig today as Alabama Amazon employees voted 2-to-1 against unionization.   Next, Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida are suing the Biden administration to get the cruise line industry back up and running.  After all, if everyone follows CDC guidelines, WHY can’t the cruise lines return to business?
  78. 2021 Friday L: 2020 ELECTION NEWS, FRAUD, THEFT, AND CORRUPTION NEWS– The Arizona election audit is moving along at a snail’s pace but all because of the actions of Maricopa County Democrats who seem to feel they answer to NO ONE other than themselves.  We would hope that Governor Doug Ducey emulate the actions of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, GOP, by firing obstinate Democrat election officials who will not hand over all information related to last year’s elections.   Elsewhere, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger refers three counties for ballot drop box probes.   New Hampshire also is ordering an audit of 2020 Presidential Election votes after reams of evidence came to light showing that a fairly sizeable portion of Republican votes mysteriously switched to Democratic votes not only for president but for some down-ballot races.

  84. 2021 Friday R:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,800.60, UP 297.03 points (+0.89%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,900.18, UP 70.88 points (+0.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,128.80, UP 31.63 points (+0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.34 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,744.310 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.33 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.20 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.05 per pound, 0.00 (0.12%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,639.24 per troy oz, +14.44 (+0.55%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,100.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.34%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.15.     In Djiboutian Franc, one greenback equals 177.50 and in Danish Krone, a buck equals 6.25.[xv]  
  85. 2021 Friday S: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.926 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.724 in Hawaii, and $3.335 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.016.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,151,463,572,701 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  86. 2021 Friday T: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk is being added to New York’s WACB lineup.  Elsewhere, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, is preparing for a major speech at the Women for America First Summit even though Democratic enemies are trying to destroy him.  We believe the man is as clean as the wind-driven snow.  Elsewhere, former Hennepin County forensic pathologist Lindsey Thomas who retired in 2017 testified at Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s trial today that the cause of death for George Floyd was the deprivation of oxygen that occurred because of the way Chauvin and the other officers restrained the perp.  She said she arrived at this conclusion from watching the video.  Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas Baker more or less said the same thing.  
  87. 2021 Friday U: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Next, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear signs a partial ban on “NO KNOCK” warrants such as the one that led to the death of EMT Breonna Taylor when police burst into the apartment she shared with her boyfriend.  The boyfriend began shooting first and Ms. Taylor died in the subsequent crossfire.  The officers involved in the mishap were cleared but fired and Taylor’s boyfriend who was facing loads of charges had them dropped.  Finally, Black Lives Matter continues demonstrating it’s built atop a foundation of deceit as a cofounder of the group- Patrisse Khan-Cullors just bought a $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon, which many critics are pointing out ‘ain’t exactly the ‘hood.’[xviii]    
  88. 2021 Friday V: Also, stay tuned for the Mega-Millions Draw #1649!  Here are the numbers: 22, 26, 27, 58, 66, and Mega 12.  Out of 105,034 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $26,262.
  89. 2021 Friday W: The 66th U.S. Attorney General of the United States Ramsey Clark died in New York City, N.Y., at age 93.  A Democrat, he served under President Lyndon Baines Johnson from March 10, 1967, to January 20, 1969.  It is interesting to note that he also served on fallen dictator Saddam Hussein’s defense team when the tyrant went on trial for his life.
  90. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned to action following a bout with cancer and reformed his band.  The subsequent release is “The Midnight Ramble Sessions, Volume I” (February 01, 2006). Joining the drummer/vocalist, were Little Sammy Davis (vocals/harmonica), Fred Scribner (guitars), and Michael Merritt (bass).  Davis is the vocalist and front man for the group seeing as how Helm was recovering from throat cancer which is amazing because the band roars through a set of blues tunes that leave one’s head ablaze and ears a-smoking.  We hope that you will investigate this one to your heart’s content and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and enjoy.  It’s amazing, of that we guarantee.

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

[ii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope that a generous portion of this money goes into investigating the rash of BLACK Democrats assaulting Asian-Americans.  Sadly, for the Dems, very few whites are committing the crimes they would like the world to believe they are committing.

[iv] We encourage militarizing the southern border by moving military bases along the southern frontier.  We also support laying in minefields and other human, vehicle, boat, and even air obstacles to prevent illegals from swarming into the country.  We believe they should seed the Rio Grande River with baby alligators scooped up from the Deep South and relocated west just as we support Black Ops going into northern Mexico and eradicating all human traffickers through clandestine operations.  Without control of the border, both the United States and Mexico will collapse with Canada following along behind the two countries within 5-10 years.  This is an example of a true existential crisis and unless we begin behaving like we want to save our country, our nation is going to be lost.

[v] We oppose this vaccine due to tissues from aborted fetuses being used in both its study and its manufacturing.

[vi] What more proof does one need to determine that yes, indeed, the scumbag Democrats STOLE the 2020 Elections.  They robbed President Donald J. Trump’s second term from him (they will rue the day they did not give him his second term because when he returns in 2024, he will be so on top of his game that the Democrats are going to cringe in the corners like the beaten wives and brats they are.  Moses Scharbug III has said, “Julius Caesar never wanted to become dictator, his political enemies forced him to become one and man, oh, man did they rue the day they did.

[vii] Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that the ‘tax plan in New York state,’ the one providing $15,000 checks to illegal aliens and felons- is “absolutely insane.”

[viii] President Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, says the odds President Trump running for a third term in 2024 is above 50-50.

[ix] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

[xviii] Friends, black lives do indeed matter, but this is a perfect example of how a civil rights movement can quickly become parasitic as the money flows in like manna from heaven- as it has to BLM due to all the WOKIES out there- unscrupulous leaders feed off this newfound wealth while nothing changes for the people truly deserving of the help.  Shame, folks, shame.  Not too late to awaken to the smell of bulls**t and do something about it.  (Note- we remember that President Barack Obama’s reverend of 20 years- Reverend Jeremiah Wright did much the same thing when Obama paid him to go away. 

88. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2022

2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS- Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them. Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings. We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 232

88. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2022:

Seward’s Day (Alaska) / National Vietnam War Veterans Day

Presidents John Tyler and Richard M. Nixon; U.S. Attorney General John W. Griggs; U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto; the Beatles, Chad Allan & the Expressions, and Toto featuring Bobby Kimball:

  5. 1555 Tuesday: The 221st Roman Catholic Pope Julius III ended his time as the shepherd of ALL Christendom on this date.  He first became the Vicar of Christ on February 07, 1550, and over the intervening five years and 50 days, he guided his global flock.  
  6. 1632 Monday: After seizing Quebec from the French in 1629, through the Treaty of Saint Germain, the British return it back to French control.
  7. 1638 Monday: Swedish Lutheran colonists settled in present-day Delaware.
  8. 1673 Wednesday: English King Charles II accepts Test Act, which excludes Roman Catholics from public functions.
  9. 1790 Monday: The 10th president of the United States—Whig John Tyler—is born in Charles City County, Virginia, on this date.
  10. 1798 Thursday: The Republic of Switzerland forms.
  11. 1799 Friday: New York passes a law, which gradually abolishes the institution of slavery in the state.
  12. 1804 Thursday: Haitian independence fighters slaughter thousands of French soldiers and civilians.

  14. 1847 Monday: During the Mexican American War of 1846-1848, U.S. troops under the command of General Winfield Scott occupy the Mexican city of Veracruz after a siege.[i]

  16. 1849 Thursday: After defeating the Sikhs in India, Britain formally annexes the province of Punjab.
  17. 1852 Monday: Ohio makes it illegal for children under 18 and women to work more than 10 hours a day.
  18. 1867 Friday: The U.S. Congress first approves the construction of the Lincoln Memorial.  Meanwhile, in Canada, the Canadian Constitution comes into being through the passage of the British North American Act.
  19. 1882 Wednesday: The Knights of Columbus undergoes chartering in Connecticut.
  20. 1901 Friday: The 43rd U.S. Attorney General John W. Griggs stepped down from office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President William McKinley from January 25, 1898, to March 29, 1901.
  21. 1903 Sunday: Using Marconi’s wireless, news media commences a regular service with news flowing between New York and London and vice-versa.
  22. 1906 Thursday: In the United States, 500,000 coalminers walked off the job seeking higher wages.
  23. 1912 Friday: British explorer Robert Falcon Scott, his doomed expedition stranded in an Antarctic blizzard after failing to be the first to reach the South Pole, wrote the last words of his journal: “For God’s sake, look after our people!”
  24. 1913 Saturday: The Reichstag announced a raise in taxes to fund a new military budget.
  25. 1932 Tuesday: Jack Benny debuts on radio on Ed Sullivan’s New York Interview program.
  26. 1936 Sunday: Nazi propaganda claims 99% of Germans voted for Nazi candidates.  More than 82 years in the 2020 Presidential Election, the same types of liars will claim that slobbering Joe Biden, a senile, pro-communist China-loving loser received 80 million votes over the 76 million for President Donald J. Trump.  Everyone knows that the majority of Germans did not vote for the Nazis just as the world knows eight decades-plus later that a loser like Joe Biden received 80 million popular votes.  It’s a bunch of malarkey.
  27. 1940 Friday: Joe Louis knocks out Johnny Paycheck in 2 to retain heavyweight-boxing title.  Elsewhere, Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov announces that the Soviet Union ‘will remain neutral in the war between Nazi Germany and France and Britain.’  Boy, does he have a surprise coming his way in June 1941.  Speaking of the Soviets, they are looking to nick off Bessarabia from Rumania which will put the Rumanians in the Axis camp.
  28. 1941 Saturday: As the British continue pushing through Ethiopia on the way to liberate the capital of Addis Ababa from the Fascist Italians, Italian civilians- who have no love for the war imposed upon them by Il Duce- are begging for protection from the British.  Renegade Askari troops are running amok murdering, raping, and torturing Italians wherever they find them.
  29. 1942 Sunday: Things are dire for the British indeed when they begin floating the idea of granting independence to their crown colony of India following a successful conclusion to World war II.  They desperately need Indian colonial troops to help them prosecute the war on all fronts.   Meanwhile, the RAF bomber command begins attacking civilian targets in Germany.  The strategy is to harm the civilian population as much as possible with the idea of driving them to take down the Nazi government.  Of course, this will never happen, and the German people will suffer horribly at the hands of their enemies.
  30. 1943 Monday: World War II rationing of meat, fats, and cheese began across the United States.  Meanwhile, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Chad Allan—multi-instrumentalist with Chad Allan and the Expressions, the band that would become the Guess Who[ii]—is born.  Elsewhere, the British Admiralty is weighing a difficult decision- do they suspend aid convoys to their new allies, the Soviet Union, because they lack the naval and long-range air assets to protect the convoys heading to Arctic Russian ports or do, they continue sending supplies and losing precious ships and personnel?
  31. 1944 Wednesday: Imperial Japanese forces continue trying to invest the eastern Indian city of Imphal, perhaps one of their worst-planned, self-inflicted military disasters yet.  When they should have been withdrawing their forces to points further east to defend the territories nearer to home conquered by them in late 1941-mid-1943, they have the idea that the people of India will join them in destroying the British.  This won’t happen- the Brits promised the Indian people their independence.  
  32. 1945 Thursday: During World War II, March 29 is the final day Nazi Germany launches B-1 attacks against Great Britain while the Soviet Army on the Eastern Front mauls the German 4th Army to the point that it no longer is battle-worthy.  In Hungary, as the Germans continue being forced back by the Red Army, Hungarian troops are deserting in droves and joining with the Reds.  They must do what they must to survive this horrendous conflict.  Still, the Germans can dish out a harsh mauling here and there.
  33. 1947 Saturday: Future keyboardist and vocalist with the rock band, Toto (1977-1984 / 1989 / 1998-2008)- Bobby Kimball- is born on this date.
  34. 1949 Tuesday: Turkey recognizes Israel.  When they were still a FREE democratic republic, the Turks were great people and were friendly with much of the world.  Fifty years later or so when the dictator would come and make the country into a junior partner of the Islamist school of thought, all of this would go out the window.
  35. 1951 Thursday: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg suffer conviction for espionage and in 1953, the couple will meet their end in the electric chair.
  36. 1954 Monday: The French paratroopers under the command of Major Marcel Bigeard manage to destroy numerous People’s Army antiaircraft artillery pieces which allows for French air assets to bring in supplies and reinforcements and to take out several hundred wounded soldiers.  Meanwhile, the command structure in Dien Bien Phu comes to the harsh decision that road clearing operations between the main camp and Isabelle to the south is becoming a costly daily battle for the troops.  Isabelle will have to rely on air drops from whatever planes can penetrate the AA batteries surrounding them.  Still, the French have no intention of giving in to the communists.
  37. 1961 Wednesday: After a 4-year trial, Nelson Mandela wins acquittal on treason charges.  In the U.S., the 23rd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution passes ratification thereby allowing the residents of Washington, D.C., to vote in presidential elections.
  38. 1962 Thursday: Jack Paar hosted NBC’s “Tonight” show for the final time, although the network aired a repeat the following night.  Johnny Carson debuted as host the following October.  Meanwhile, communist authorities ordered the trials of the failed Bay of Pigs participants in Cuba.
  39. 1964 Sunday: In Las Vegas, Nevada, future Democratic Senator Catherine Cortez Masto is born.  She would enter the world’s greatest deliberative body on January 03,
  40. 1966 Tuesday: Muhammad Ali beats George Chuvalo in a 15-round unanimous decision.   Ali improved his pro record to 23-0 by beating the Canadian heavyweight in a unanimous decision.  In so doing, he retained the WBC, the NYSAC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight boxing titles.  Chuvalo in his loss to Ali saw his record drop to 34-12-2.  Still, he went the distance with the Greatest.
  41. 1971 Monday: U.S. Army 1st Lt William L Calley, Jr. found guilty in the My Lai (Vietnam) Massacre.  The military tribunal convicted Lt. Calley of 22 deaths and sentenced him to serve three years of house arrest.  Meanwhile, a jury in Los Angeles, California, recommended the death penalty for Charles Manson and three female followers for the 1969 Tate-La Bianca murders; however, a judge later commuted the sentences.  
  42. 1973 Thursday: The last United States combat troops left South Vietnam, ending America’s direct military involvement in the Vietnam War.  In an address to the nation, President Richard Nixon declared, “For the first time in 12 years, no American military forces are in Vietnam.”
  43. 1974 Friday: A court indicted eight Ohio National Guardsmen on federal charges stemming from the shooting deaths of four students at Kent State University; however, the court later dropped the charges.  Elsewhere, Mariner 10, the U.S. space probe, became the first spacecraft to reach the planet Mercury.  NASA launched it on November 03, 1973.
  44. 1983 Tuesday: Erno Rubik received a patent for his Magic Cube, U.S. Patent 4,378,116.
  45. 1984 Thursday: In the NFL, the Baltimore Colts move to Indianapolis.

  49. 1994 Tuesday: Serbs and Croats signed a cease-fire to end the war in Croatia.
  50. 1999 Monday: The DOW Jones Industrial Average closes above 10,000 points for the first time in history, coming in at 10,006.78.  Investors are giddy.
  51. 2000 Wednesday: The OPEC oil-producing nations announce they will increase output.
  52. 2001 Thursday: As it approaches Aspen, Colorado’s airport runway, a chartered Gulfstream III jet slams into a nearby hillside killing 18 people aboard the doomed aircraft.
  53. 2002 Friday: Due to the recent Passover massacre in Israel, the Israeli Defense Forces gear up to launch Operation Defensive Shield against Palestinian militants wherever they can locate and liquidate the thugs.  This will be their largest military operation since the Six-Day War back in 1967.  Wipe ‘em out, boys, wipe ‘em out.
  54. 2003 Saturday: Thanks to the Chi-Coms, SARS- Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome- is running amok in various parts of the world.  In the Canadian city of Toronto, health authorities report at least 100 cases due to loads of Chinese going back and forth.
  55. 2004 Monday: Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia joined NATO as full members, welcomed into the organization by President George W. Bush at the White House.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com bullying, the nation of Dominica withdraws its diplomats from the Republic of China- Taiwan- and sends them to Beijing.  Cowards.  Meanwhile, scientists are all agog at having found methane in the Martian atmosphere which means there could be organic processes occurring on the Red Planet.  We suspect there are- where’s there’s water, folks, there’s life and where there’s life, there’s methane.
  56. 2005 Tuesday: In war-devastated Iraq- thanks to the Bush-Cheney administration- three Romanian journalists undergo kidnapping by violent jihadists.  Although these poor souls face having their heads lopped off, it’s clearer that the scumbags holding them want to charge a massive ransom for their safe return.  We shall see.
  57. 2006 Wednesday: Christian convert Abdul Rahman flees Afghanistan and receives asylum in Italy.  Multitudes of Afghan clerics and government officials demand his extradition back to his home country so they can show him what Islamic ‘justice’ is.
  58. 2007 Thursday: Once again, a militant hegemonic Iran is up to no good.  The U.N. Security Council is wagging a finger at them in ‘grave, grave concern’ over the Iranian Revolutionary Guard capturing and imprisoning 15 British Royal Navy and Marines they claim entered their territorial waters.  Time to drop some neutron bombs on these sand maggots.
  59. 2008 Saturday: Liberals are creaming their pants around the world as today is EARTH HOUR, a time in which, slobbering liberals encourage everyone to go without ALL nonessential power between the hour of 8-9:00 P.M. local time.  This will show those dastardly energy-guzzling scumbags like Senator John F. Kerry, D-MA.
  60. 2009 Sunday: At a nursing home in Carthage, North Carolina, a POS gunman goes on a rampage killing at least 8 people and wounding another 3.  Democrats immediately begin screaming for ‘GUN CONTROL!  CONFISCATE ALL GUNS!  DESTROY THE NRA!’  To be expected, every time some schmuck uses a gun for evil.
  61. 2010 Monday: At least 38 people die and 60 suffer injuries when two female suicide bombers carry out two separate terrorist attacks at Moscow Metro stations Lubyana and Park Kultury.   Elsewhere, in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi and her political movement, the National League for Democracy, announces that it will boycott the upcoming elections because of the corruption of their government.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis calls for the Federal Reserve to limit its purchase of U.S. Treasuries because they ‘feed the fire’ of inflation.  Meanwhile, from one end of the Near and Middle East to the other, people are running amok during the ‘Arab Spring.’  Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is assuming control of the entire government after two weeks of violent protests.
  63. 2012 Thursday: In New Delhi, India, leaders of Brazil, Russia, China, South Africa, and India meet for the 2012 BRICS summit.  Elsewhere, in San Pedro Sula prison in Honduras, inmates run amok and at least 13 people are slain in the violence. 
  64. 2013 Friday:  New research on the Shroud of Turin supports that it may been used as Jesus Christ’s burial cloth; researchers used mechanical and thermal measurements to date the shroud between 300 BC and 400 AD.  Elsewhere, in Peshawar, Pakistan, a vehicle bomb explodes near the U.S. Embassy, killing 10 people outright and injuring at least another 35-40 people.
  65. 2014 Saturday:  Russia makes assurances that the country will not invade Ukraine in its efforts to resolve the dispute over its annexation of Crimea.  Of course, the Russians have already gobbled up the Crimea and will soon be waging undeclared war in eastern Ukraine on behalf of ‘Russian separatists’ there.
  66. 2015 Sunday: To combat the ISIS thugs, Egyptian President Fattah al-Sisi announces that moderate Arab states will begin allowing their militaries to work with one another since Barack Obama cut off aid to Egypt, Jordan, and others.  Saudi Arabia has already been battling Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.   Meanwhile, Pakistan is sending a Boeing 747 to evacuate its diplomats and civilians out of that crumbling country.
  67. 2016 Tuesday: Due to increasing strife and chaos along the southern border of Turkey with Iraq, the U.S. State Department as well as the Pentagon begin ordering all diplomatic and military personnel to evacuate.  ISIS is continuing to run amok in Syria butchering and killing people all over the place so in order to avoid an international incident, it’s time to begin withdrawing U.S. personnel.  We’d hate to go to war in Syria, right (or have we already been fighting there)?  Elsewhere, Breitbart News reports that Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is charged with battery for allegedly having pushed their reporter, Michelle Fields, away from his candidate on March 08.  What a load of crap.
  68. 2017 Wednesday: Britain filed for divorce from the European Union as Prime Minister Theresa May sent a six-page letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk.  Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump assumes a position as an unpaid advisor to her father, President Donald J. Trump.   Elsewhere, jihadists continue running amok in Iraq as a suicide bomber targets a police roadblock.  The subsequent explosion kills 15 people outright and injures at least another 40 poor souls.
  69. 2018 Thursday: Because the U.S. Department of Homeland Security failed to notify screened asylum seekers that their one-year period for requesting asylum was going to end, thus prompting the illegals to hurry up with their claims, Judge Ricardo S. Martinez orders the DHS to give the ‘asylum seekers’ another year to file their applications and also orders the DHS to fix their rules.   Meanwhile, the 2018 Major League Baseball season gets underway.  
  70. 2019 Friday: Democratic politician Lucy Flores accuses former vice president and presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden of an ‘inappropriate kiss.’  Oh, well; it’s not the first time.   Elsewhere, a judge in the Cayman Islands, a judge throws out a law stipulating that marriage is between one man and one woman and thus legalizes with the stroke of a pen gay marriage.  And another one bites the dust.
  71. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to the Wuhan Flu leaving China and enveloping the world, the number of confirmed global cases sits at 718,685 what with 33,881 confirmed deaths from the virus.  Meanwhile, in the United States, we know of 139,675 cases with at least 2,436 deaths.  China continues trying to alleviate itself of the sole responsibility as creators of this horrendous virus, but everyone knows the communists sitting pretty in Beijing are the culprits and that when the crisis passes, they will be held to account for it.  Shame on them: your plan to take out President Trump by ruining the global economy is a complete failure.
  72. 2021 Monday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– First, we hear that Joe Biden’s administration won’t lift the Trump-imposed tariffs on the People’s Republic of (communist) China.  This remains to be seen.  Next, Joe Biden says he has no plans on meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Joe plans to take a tough stance towards Pyongyang.  We shall see what the gets us.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump made a surprise visit to a wedding being held on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago and much to the delight of the guests began ripping into feeble old Joe Biden.   In other Joe Biden news, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Uncle Joe and his administration for labeling everything RACIST or calling it JIM CROW.  We agree.  Enough is enough already![iv]
  73. 2021 Monday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS I– In the Suez Canal, after offloading the quarter-mile-long Panamanian-flagged, Japanese-owned container ship, an armada of tugboats and cranes was finally able to get the ship back into the water.  Global economic losses per day due to the complete stoppage of canal traffic is estimated to be at $9 billion per day.  Prices on all goods will go up while others will once again be snapped up by hoarders.   Next, a report on One America News says that U.S. banks are busily divesting from communist China Tech and mainstream media companies.  Good.  They are a bunch of propagandists.   Next, Kim Jong Un says that the ‘United Nations is trying to negate his nation’s ability to defend itself from foreign attack.’
  74. 2021 Monday B: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– late last night, we were able to witness video in which a Baby Evita look-alike with BIG GOO-GOO EYES and a black face mask was prohibiting U.S. senators from filming the outrageous human rights abuses occurring in border holding pens for illegal aliens.  Apparently, the Biden administration has hired a bunch of young leftists to shield anyone from getting too close to the illegal aliens, languishing in squalid conditions far worse than what Kim Jong Un does to three generations of dissidents in his country.   This is contemptable and it must stop NOW.  Speaking of the border, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, supposedly the nation’s vice president, says she (and Uncle Joe) are NOT going to visit the southern border anytime soon but that she- as the new BORDER CZAR[v]– will meet with Central American leaders so she can address the illegal alien invasion at its source(s).   (Note- the administration says they are working on a plan but won’t say what the plan might be.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM suspect it will be sending trillions of taxpayer dollars to Third World despots and thugs).
  75. 2021 Monday C: POLLING NEWS– a recent poll shows that 57-percent of the American people disapprove of Joe Biden’s handling of the Second Amendment and his bid to outlaw all guns.  The same poll says that 54-percent of the American people view the activities along our southern border as a CRISIS although Uncle Joe and his bought-and-paid-for fake news media hacks do their best to avoid calling it as such.   Another poll shown on Newsmax says that a significant percentage of the American people view Cancel Culture as a dire threat to liberty and freedom.  Time to destroy it, folks.
  76. 2021 Monday D: COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS NEWS– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows blasts Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci for their revisionist rearrangement of what we know about COVID-19, whence it came from, and how bad it is.  The American people are tired of the constant barrage of lying and intimidation on the China Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control have extended the moratorium on evictions.  We didn’t know the CDC was in control of who could and who could not be evicted?  At what time will landlords be provided aid?  In other CDC news, the agency nixed Governor Ron DeSantis’ request to get the cruise lines up and going now that the Chi-Vi is scaling back.  Governor DeSantis says he will fight them and is threatening to sue.  Next, a new report released by the World Health Organization says that ‘the Chinese Virus came from animals, NOT from the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which if we are to believe this crock of festering crap returns us to the Wuhan Meat Market Malady Theory (although the virus came from animals and the Chi-Coms inside the institute were studying bat viruses.  Ba-bam!).
  77. 2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS– Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them.  Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings.  We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.  Elsewhere, the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is underway with opening statements made by both sides.  If the jurors follow the law, from what we saw already, it appears that Officer Chauvin will be cleared of all charges and will be reinstated on the force, IF the jurors follow the law.  Meanwhile, an Antifa mob in Salem, Oregon, attacked a Blue Lives Matter rally.  Next, reports from the Windy City from last night say that a car full of shooters pulled up alongside a party bus at a stoplight and lit the vehicle up.  One was killed outright and at least three others suffered injuries in the unprovoked assault.  Finally, in the Washington State House of Representatives, a bill has been passed prohibiting open carry at the state capitol and on state property.
  78. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– The National Rifle Association reports that business is good with an average of 1,000 new signups each day.  Excellent.   Meanwhile, Los Angeles County, California, has decided that violent crime has gotten so out of control that they are going to REFUND the law enforcement budget $36 million they cut from it several months back.  Next, Piers Morgan comes to the defense of Sharon Osbourne, recently fired from the ‘chick show,’ The Talk, for defending him.  Whatever the f*** happened to the right to express one’s opinions? 
  79. 2021 Monday G: GOP NEWS I– Senator Dan Sullivan, R-AK, says he will support his fellow senator, the highly unlikable party hack, Lisa Murkowski, who is facing a tough road ahead.  Alaska GOP politician Kelly Tshibaka, former Department of Administration commissioner, is seeking to primary Senator Murkowski in 2022.  Where can we send money, Kelly?   Elsewhere, famed attorney Linn Wood says he is seeking to become head of South Carolina’s GOP.  Uh, okay, didn’t you cost the state of Georgia TWO Senate seats, Mr. Wood?  Next, Senator Thom Tillis, R-NC, tells the media that he has a ‘prostate cancer’ confirmation from his doctor.  Good luck, Senator.  Hang in there.
  80. 2021 Monday H: POPULAR CULTURE NEWS– If you want to know where the blood of aborted fetuses go, rapper Lil NAS X and Nike are offering a limited-edition shoe, 666 pairs at more than a grand each dedicated to Satan.  In fact, the shoes are so ‘satanic,’ that the ‘Church of Satan’ has said, ‘right on, son, right on.’  Each pair of tennis shoes is made with ONE DROP of human blood which is sick enough, but the shoes are covered with satanic symbols and the like and what is clear to us is that although many will dismiss the shoes as a passing fancy, in a culture where Christianity and Judaism is under constant assault, this is evil shit.  Nike says we just make them, we neither approve nor disapprove of the shoes.  Wow.  NO more Nike shoes for us as this is sick shit.  Elsewhere, the author of Captain Underpants- David Murray Pilkey Jr.- has just had his books banned for…wait for it…you guessed it: PASSIVE RACISM.  Wow.
  81. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– New Mexico is suing the Biden administration over its plan to store nuclear waste in the Cactus State.  We keep waiting for someone such as Elon Musk to find a way to recycle and reuse spent uranium.  That would be a game changer as far a nuclear energy goes.  Imagine if atomic energy became so commonplace and safe that all ships and aircraft could be powered via nuclear energy, it would flatten the costs of fuel for massive cargo ships such as the one recently freed in the Suez Canal.   Speaking of Elon Musk, first, the Biden administration is floating a $3 trillion ‘infrastructure/green energy bill’ that will rely heavily on high-speed rail crisscrossing the country.[vi]  Folks, in California, each mile of the failed HSR project costs $200 million and much of the work done on it is done by the Chi-Coms.[vii]  Elon Musk is in the process of making the Hyperloop a reality just as he is a tunnel network that will permit self-driving vehicles to zip people underground across the country at 150 mph or more.  Hey, Uncle Joe: how about working with Elon Musk you senile old f***?   Speaking of energy, a new report says that the Chi-Coms are responsible for more than HALF of all coal emissions on the planet and it’s the United States that must use windmills and solar farms.
  82. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,479,098 confirmed cases, +46,271, 2,788,212  confirmed deaths, +7,436, and 72,276,724 confirmed recoveries, +316,035.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,318,775 confirmed cases, up 64,285 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,863 confirmed deaths, UP 394, and 118,013,462 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. 
  83. 2021 Monday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,653 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  84. : COVID-19 STATISTICS in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,541,928 confirmed cases (less than yesterday’s count), 56,072 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the next highest state after California- Arizona: currently, they have 836,253 confirmed cases, 16,745 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Serbia, home of the flashpoint for World War I: 566,689 cases of the virus, 5,039 confirmed deaths and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[viii]    Meanwhile, Joe Biden is demanding that states reimpose their mask mandates so we can ‘beat the virus.’  F*** you, Joe.  NOT our president.
  85. 2021 Monday M:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,171.37, UP 98.49 points (+0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,059.65, DOWN 79.08 points (-0.60%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,971.09, DOWN 3.45 points (-0.087%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.10 per barrel, +0.54 (+0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,710.10 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.72 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,183.40 per troy oz, +1.70 (+1.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.04 per pound, +0.01 (+0.20%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,541.50 per troy oz, +3.00 (+0.12%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $27,500.00 per troy oz., -700.00 (-2489%).[xi]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.60.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Bolivian boliviano, one greenback equals 6.85.[xii]  
  86. 2021 Monday N: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.897 per gallon, $2.874 in Florida (now that Chef Cheryl and her family have relocated there), $3.645 in Hawaii, and $3.326 in Washington state.[xiii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,109,117,789,302 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.  Meanwhile, Mayor Pete- our ‘transportation secretary’- says the Biden administration has NO plans at raising gasoline taxes or taxing drivers a mileage fee (which means they probably do) in order to pay for the upcoming $3 trillion ‘infrastructure plan.’  I guess we shall see.
  87. 2021 Monday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– It would appear that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has yet another accuser claiming that the ‘Gropin’ Gov’ groped her and didn’t want to let go.  What a POS and yet like a turd stuck to the side of the crapper, this piece of fecal matter refuses to go.  The new accuser says that the handsy governor groped this woman while touring her FLOODED flipping home.  Ye gods, is there NOTHING this scum bum won’t do?  Speaking of floods, several people lost their lives in flash-flooding in Tennessee.
  88. 2022 Tuesday: By now, everyone knows the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Rick Danko released his third solo album, “Live on Breeze Hill,” on July 27, 1999.  The album was recorded at a live show three months before the legendary bassist/fiddler/vocalist died which makes it an alluring show.  Always cursed with substance abuse problems and subsequent poor health, Danko was a fragile individual yet a brave, powerful performer.   Of the 12 cuts on this superb outing, most of them are Band classics, both tunes he and Richard Manuel sang as well as one or two from Levon Helm.  Also included are some of his originals which makes it a glorious purchase to be sure.  Joining Danko are friend, Garth Hudson (keyboards/accordions), Jim Weider and Roger Mason (guitars, basses), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), three brass players and another keyboardist.  We certainly hope that you will seek this album out at your favorite haunt for music and give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.

[i] The young United States should have taken ALL of Mexico down through the Central American countries to where the southern end of Panama meets the northern end of Colombia.  Had we done that, we would have solved the issue of illegal immigration.  We should have also taken Cuba in 1898 and kept her just as we should have gone back and taken Canada.  What a glorious nation we would have, one now being overrun with Third World illegal aliens.

[ii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

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

[iv] Democrats think that if they call everything racist or Jim Crow or some combination of the terms that they can guilt or shame the American people into silence.  Here’s the deal- we don’t give a flying f*** anymore, call us racist as much as you like but one day when a REAL incidence of racism occurs and no one gives a damn, you will only have yourselves to blame.

[v] Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says that ‘putting (“Kooky”) Kamala Harris in charge along the border is akin to putting banned cyclist Lance Armstrong in charge of the DEA.’  You just don’t do that because as everyone knows, the former senator from California believes that border officials and immigration authorities are akin to the Ku Klux Klan.  F*** you, “Kooky Kamala.”

[vi] National debt in the United States sits at $28 trillion and is expected to double within 30 years or less.  Yikes.

[vii] In France, the cost per mile of high-speed rail is $30 million which still seems high.  However, in the United States, projects such as these are big pools of money from which, liberal politicians reward not only their flunkies and lackeys but also themselves which is why work is tortuously slow and cost overruns are increase by the day.  The people of California do not want this crap and yet the crap is forced upon us and Joe Biden plans to see that the money-go-round continues.

  71. 2017 Tuesday: Following a devastating storm in the Mediterranean, Malta’s famous landmark, the Azure Window, topples into the sea, much to the horror of the island’s citizens.  Elsewhere, as the migrant crisis in Europe continues to worsen, the National Assembly of Hungary votes to intern ALL migrants entering their country.

  74. 2020 Saturday: The Chi-Com Bat Flu continues spreading around the world, affecting nations in the Mediterranean, in Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, across the Middle East, into Western Europe and Latin America.  In Japan, the authorities are arresting people for breaking their quarantines while in South America, the disease is popping up there.  The World Health Organization is slow to react because they are covering up for their masters in Beijing.
  75. 2021 Sunday: Members of the Biden administration visit the southern border to view (we believe to welcome in) illegal aliens swarming the border like a scene from the movie “World War Z,” (2013) a scene in which zombies are swarming up a wall in Israel. 
  76. 2021 Sunday A: As the ‘Biden administration’ continues bringing the U.S. into a Middle Eastern war, B-52s are flying across the Persian Gulf to strike fear into the hearts of Iranians.  Why we are flying B-52s is beyond us as far too many were shot down in the Vietnam War.  Here we are a half-century later flying the same aircraft, designed in the 1950s, while air defenses of all weaponry have become ‘smart.’  If the B-52s were to go into action over Iran, they would be easy pickings.   Joe- don’t get the U.S. into a war to defend gay rights and women’s rights in nations that will never respect them.   Speaking of the military, the Pentagon is reviewing a request to keep National Guard troops in Washington, D.C., for another TWO months.
  77. 2021 Sunday B: President Donald J. Trump announces he is going to go to Alaska so he can campaign against RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski.  We would love to see former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin primary Senator Murkowski.[x]   Speaking of President Trump, he lambastes various RINO Republican entities for misusing his brand in fund-raising efforts, especially when they continue supporting RINOs who voted for his impeachment.  He demands they cease and desist.  That means the Republican House and Senate Committees and we believe the Republican National Committee, too.  Until the GOP comes to grips with its RINO problems, no one is going to send another dime to any GOP PAC or Super Pac.  F**k them.
  78. 2021 Sunday C: In the U.S. Senate, the Republicans tried to block COVID-19 relief checks going to illegal aliens and other foreign citizens- as well as to people doing time in the hoosegow- but the Democrats blocked the GOP.   With the absence of Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan, Republican, away on family business, the Dems passed the COVID-19 ‘Relief Bill’ by a vote of 50-49.  We learn that at least 17 million Americans are ineligible to receive benefits while river-swimming illegals and the incarcerated will receive checks.  F**k them.   RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says Joe Biden should concentrate on reopening schools rather than sending checks to people who don’t deserve them.
  79. 2021 Sunday D: In New York, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s woes continue to worsen what with two more women coming out and pointing the fingers of doom at this POS who thinks his fecal matter doesn’t stink.  The Albany Times says NOT only should “Killer Cuomo” go but the enablers who helped him get away with incalculable #MeToo crimes.[xi]   Speaking of Cuomo, the New York legislature has stripped the bum of his emergency rights.  NO more acting like a dictator.  We hope to see his brother, Chris the Pris, face his own #MeToo troubles what with his exceptionally close relationship with fellow CNN anchor Don Lemon, both of whom are reputed gropers.   Speaking of the Empire State, Donald Trump is planning his first visit to the Big Apple since leaving office.
  80. 2021 Sunday E:  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says the ‘Democratic agenda is the reshaping of America.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, a massive global hack breaches Microsoft business accounts.   Speaking of hacks, pressure applied by President Donald J. Trump and the U.S. has caused Huawei to lose loads of money outside the People’s Republic of China.  In other news, a Michigan state judge reinstates voting fraud cases with the state’s borders following a forensic probe of the corrupt Dominion Voting Systems equipment used in the state’s 2020 Presidential Election.  Ample evidence exists of the machines flipping votes for Donald Trump to Methuselah Biden.   Finally, the Tennessee legislature is proposing a bill that will allow the state to crack down on violent highway protesters, people who blocks roads and highways as well as stiffening the rights of citizens to defend their lives and property. 
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Governor Greg Abbot and the state of Texas is launching Operation Lone Star with which to fund, employ National Guard troops, and law enforcement officers in land, sea, and air operations to halt the tidal wave of illegal aliens trying to force their way into the country.  All power to Texas!  Let’s revive Operation Wetback and begin rounding up and removing illegal aliens everywhere we find them.  Meanwhile, Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz blasts the Biden administration for holding NO press conferences and notes that it appears as though we are moving towards a “Harris administration.”  Amen.  Speaking of the Republican Party, it’s speaking out against the cancelation of news media outlets on the right by the left and Cancel Culture.
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 116,600,908 confirmed cases, +431,789, 2,589,638, confirmed deaths, +7,563, and 65,920,692 confirmed recoveries, +225,672.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,258,941 confirmed cases, up 65,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 529,527 confirmed deaths, UP 1,610, and 112,291,045 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 201,050 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.   Note- that stupid bi**h Jen “Circle Back” Psaki won’t credit President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: 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: 3,596,488 confirmed cases, 54,124 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 444 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 347,301 confirmed cases, 5,107 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Idaho: currently, they have 173,011 confirmed cases, 1,882 confirmed deaths, and 96,017 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 799,727 confirmed cases, 5,856 confirmed deaths, and 753,081 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Com lab-engineered biowarfare, anti-Trump Xi Jinping Bat Virus, AstraZeneca says that it’s planning to deliver roughly 50 million doses of the Chi-Vi Vax to Americans within the next two months.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Switzerland votes to ban face coverings in public.  Meanwhile, authorities report that the Russians have launched a disinformation campaign on the efficacy and safety of U.S. Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  F**k the Russians.  Elsewhere, a Uighur Muslim human rights group demands the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics be stripped from the Chi-Com regional power over their persecution of Uighurs and other minorities in the western portion of that backward country.  Finally, the U.S. and South Korea are preparing to hold limited military exercises beginning tomorrow and which will run for nine days.  North Korea promises to closely monitor them.  How about we END the Korean War?  What a novel idea!
  85. 2021 Sunday J: Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, blasts the Biden PORKULUS Relief Bill as nothing more than a ‘liberal wish list.’  Meanwhile, Representative Mike Gallagher, R-WI, is demanding that Joe Biden reconsider shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline.  It’s time to open that sucker back up so Americans can enjoy cheap energy prices.  In other news, economist Stephen Moore says a good jobs report can get the U.S. economy going up like a rocket ship.  Next, Trump era student loan debt czar Mark A. Brown hands his resignation letter over to the Biden administration.    Finally, Newsmax asks an important question: is “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell planning to exit the world’s greatest deliberative body?  Probably going to relocate to the PRC so he can help his father-in-law run his shipping company.
  86. 2022 Monday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band released its first ‘best of’ compilation, “The Best of the Band,” on July 15, 1976.  The group was having inner turmoil related to being together for far too long, having massive success and then a decline all within the span of about five years.  Thus, the record company said ‘it’s time to release a compilation’ so we can bring in some additional revenue so here we are.  Still, you have a glorious introduction to one of the most prolific groups of all time- yes, we said it, because the music and the attitude of this band influenced everyone from Eric Clapton to Dave Mason to loads of other similar-sounding groups- which is why if you have yet to get in on the ground floor, well, this is the perfect way in which you can do it.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended albums.  You can thank us later.

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[ii] We shared the music of the famed Los Angeles, California, psychedelic rock band, Love, beginning on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  We hope you will check them out as they deserve to be heard.

[iii] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the J. Geils’ Band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  We hope you remain attentive for the day when we do because they are one of the all-time great American rock bands.

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

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

[vi] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[vii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the Beatles and the band’s original members, beginning on Friday, 04-November-2016 which ran through Sunday, 11-June-2017. You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

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

[x] One of the reasons (among many) President Trump wants to end the service of Senator Murkowski is her support for Debra Haaland to become the next secretary of the Department of the Interior, a person who will cripple the 49th state’s energy and mineral production.  It’s time for Murkowski to go.

[xi] The amazing thing is NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio smells chum in the water and is planning on launching a primary campaign to strip “Killer Cuomo” of the governorship and winning it for himself.  That is pretty bad when a loser like Di Blasio is in better shape than a boner like Cuomo.  Going to be fun to watch.

62. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 03, 2022, UPDATE A

What’s going on between the West and Russia is not something that had to happen. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the birth of modern Russia, the West could have incorporated them rather than dismissed them as a failed state. In so doing, instead of democracy, they got Putin, and not listening to his repeated ‘security assurances’ put us to where we now are- on the precipice of World War III

62. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 03, 2022:

What’s going on between the West and Russia is not something that had to happen.  Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the birth of modern Russia, the West could have incorporated them rather than dismissed them as a failed state.  In so doing, instead of democracy, they got Putin, and not listening to his repeated ‘security assurances’ put us to where we now are- on the precipice of World War III

  1. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 441,784,594 confirmed cases, +1,231,585, 6,000,515 confirmed deaths, +8,032 and 374,729,596 confirmed recoveries, +1,741,637. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 80,817,397 confirmed cases, UP 50,672 from yesterday’s reporting, 981,588 confirmed deaths, UP +1,833,[i] and 54,016,984 confirmed recoveries, UP 71,195 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 531,967 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 168,912 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 407 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Thursday 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: 8,993,362 confirmed cases, 86,111 confirmed deaths, and 8,907,251 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it-.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,856,468 confirmed cases, 70,789 confirmed deaths, and 4,268,222 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 236,749 confirmed cases, 1,344 confirmed deaths, and 235,405 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,427,013 confirmed cases, 11,954 confirmed deaths, and 1,415,059 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., American Samoa: they have 155 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 155 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,653,608 confirmed cases, 10,239 confirmed deaths, and 3,585,292 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Timor-Leste, 168th place on the list: 22,736 cases of the virus, 129 confirmed death and 22,291 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,794.66, DOWN 96.69 points (-0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,537.94 DOWN 214.07 points (-1.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,369.49, DOWN 23.05 points (-0.53%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $109.17 per barrel, -1.45 (-1.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,938.06 per troy oz., +15.70 (+0.82%) while the price of SILVER is $25.21 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,081.10 per troy oz, +13.10 (+1.23%) while the price of COPPER is $4.78 per pound, +0.12 (+2.50%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,780.97 per troy oz., +5.36 (+0.19%). The price of RHODIUM is $19,750.00 per troy oz., +250.00 (+1.28%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,470,000.00 per CNY/T, ++5,000.00 (+0.34%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,824.00 per USD/T, +255.00 (+7.14%). The price of ZINC is $3,996.00 per USD/T., +135.00 (+3.50%).   The price of COCOA is $2,495.00 per USD/T, +4.00 (+0.16%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,464.40 USD 1,000 board feet +45.70 (+3.22%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000024.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.32 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.91 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.71, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 108.00 of theirs.    In Panamanian Balboa, one greenback equals 1.00 and in Papua New Guinean Kina, a buck equals 3.42 and in Paraguayan Guarani, one dollar equals 6,976.67 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.940 per gallon, $3.618 in Florida, $4.632 in Hawaii, and $4.109 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Minnesota- $3.534.  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 142nd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Mayotte: $7.391 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,294,183,646,727 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 Saudi Arabia 2 the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea.  This nation holds $131,000,000,000 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 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Russia is shelling a nuclear power plant in Ukraine.  This leads many to believe they seek to cause a Chernobyl-style crisis, one that will most likely spread nuclear fallout to all of Europe to the west, across the Atlantic Ocean to the New World and back across the Pacific to Asia.  Perhaps they seek Joe Biden and NATO to back off and stand down?   Next, a new report says that Russia plans ‘public executions’ with which to dampen Ukrainian spirits.  Didn’t Vladimir Putin learn anything from the history of World War II to know that when one executes people fighting for the freedom, it makes the others fight even harder against such totalitarian shit?  For every German soldier murdered by partisans during World War II, the Nazis executed 100 hostages.  This only made the others fight that much harder.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says, ‘we broke Russia’s elaborate plans within a week.’
  8. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, says the ‘U.S. must stop using imports of Russian oil.’  Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says that ‘Russia is using energy as a weapon against the United States and NATO.’  Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large District, says the ‘U.S. can easily replace Russian oil’ which is true.  We have our own, but the Democrats won’t let us do it.  Next, former Obama stooge, General Wesley Clark says that ‘Vladimir Putin must be named a war criminal and that a NATO No-Fly Zone must be established over Ukraine’ with which to usher us closer to the Third World War.  What a flipping moron.  Enough.
  9. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, says the ‘U.S. must stop using imports of Russian oil.’  Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says that ‘Russia is using energy as a weapon against the United States and NATO.’  Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large District, says the ‘U.S. can easily replace Russian oil’ which is true.  We have our own, but the Democrats won’t let us do it.  Next, former Obama stooge, General Wesley Clark says that ‘Vladimir Putin must be named a war criminal and that a NATO No-Fly Zone must be established over Ukraine’ with which to usher us closer to the Third World War.  What a flipping moron.  Enough.
  10. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says that Russia’s leadership is not insane as Western news media outlets claim.  Thus, the threat of ‘nuclear war’ is something which Western governments should ponder carefully before they do something imbecilic such as trying to establish a ‘No-Fly Zone’ over Ukraine like that pathetic lump of meat, Wesley Clark is urging.
  11. 2022 Thursday J: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Our glorious vice president and border czar, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the border for 335 days now.  She has not been anywhere close to the southern border in, uh, 249 days.  What a disgrace.  Okay, we at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have determined the cost of caring for the illegal aliens within the country the past 62 days is around $403,741,253.  That money could do so much for the American people.  Next, the cost of caring for these illegals the past 427 days is around $42,044,630,748.  Meanwhile, since January 01, 2022, we believe the estimated number of illegal aliens who have swarmed across the southern border since January 01, 2022, to be around 646,486.  Finally, we believe the estimated LOW number of illegals in the country at or around 43,406,416.  However, since the inception of the blog back in the spring of 2009, we estimated the number of illegals in the country- back then- at 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-125 million which is an absolutely shocking but much more honest number.
  12. 2022 Thursday K: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Germany urges United Nations Human Rights Commission to publicize its report on the Uighur genocide inside the People’s Republic of China.  Next, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says he won’t veto European Union sanctions on Russia.  Why would he?  Meanwhile, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was visiting Taiwan where the island nation was going to honor him when lo and behold, a major power failure descended upon the liberty-loving island.  Sounds like the Chi-Coms are f**king around.
  13. 2022 Thursday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $47.83 (2) AstraZeneca: $60.07 (3) Merck & Company: $77.15 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $168.48 (5) Novavax: $80.53 (6) BioNTech: $142.26 (7) Moderna: $141.52.

  15. 2022 Thursday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.12 (2) DuPont: $76.89 (3) Honeywell: $187.52 (4) 3M: $148.30 (5) Teijen: $1,350.00.
  16. 2022 Thursday O: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.73 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $27.47 (3) Beyond Meat: $46.41.
  17. 2022 Thursday P: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $139.29 (2) Lowe’s: $226.28 (3) Home Depot: $324.35 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $533.05 (5) Amazon: $2,957.97.
  18. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I- The FAA has banned Russians flying aircraft over U.S. airspace.  Meanwhile, reporters are pressing mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki on her boss’s stance of funding the Russian invasion of Ukraine by buying millions of dollars’ worth of oil daily from the Russkies.
  19. 2022 Thursday R: Political News I- Congressman Van Taylor, R-TX 3rd congressional district, has announced his resignation now that the truth has come out about an extramarital affair with a former ISIS bride who now is a widow because her POS spouse went to be with Allah.  Speaking of Texas, Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says that Governor Greg Abbott is going to clobber Democrat challenger, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke in November.
  20. 2022 Thursday S: Observation of the Day- In my opinion, I think blaming Russia for all the ills of the world has led us to the precipice upon which, we now teeter.  We had an opportunity after the collapse of the Soviet Union to bring Russia into the fold, but everyone treated them as some sort of pariah and left them to languish.  Had the West made a concerted effort to bring Russia into the European world, we might not be undergoing what we are now.  Beginning with the Obama-Biden regime, Democrats began to blame Russia for fictional ills and when Donald Trump ran for the White House and won it, suddenly, Russia was the one everyone blamed for the election’s outcome.  The Democrats use the Russians as their punching bag thinking that they are somehow impotent and are unable to respond to the constant finger-pointing and blame game.  The Russians have done what they have had to do, beginning with the annexation of Crimea.  Instead of honoring their demands for Ukraine not becoming a member of NATO, the Obama-Biden regime exacerbated their fears which led to them stealing it away from their southern neighbor.  Yes, they yanked away two Georgian provinces during the Bush #43 years, but Bush was beginning to use them as a punching bag, too.  Trump tried to make relations better with Russia, but the Democratic Party outcry kept him from improving relations between their country and ours.  None of this was necessary- especially when communist China is the bigger threat.  Look where Western stupidity has pushed Russia- into the cold embrace of the Chi-Coms.  Not good.  Chef Goldie McNamara.

  55. 2016 Sunday: As fighting continues to rage in Yemen, Saudi warplanes intercept an Iranian-made SCUD missile in its airspace.  This isn’t the first one, this has been going on for awhile now with Iranians attempting to attack Saudi territory as they continue to support their proxies, the Houthi rebels.   Elsewhere, as Middle Eastern ‘refugees’ continue flooding into Eastern Europe, Slovenia says it’s going to restrict the number of Muslim refugees to whom it permits entry.  Who can blame them?
  56. 2017 Tuesday: The United States sanctions Venezuela’s Vice President Tareck El-Aissami, accusing him of being a narcotrafficker and which allows the U.S. government to freeze his assets in the U.S. and to prevent his entry into the U.S.  Where the heck did the Venezuelans find a Muslim guy to be the number two under Nicolas Maduro.  
  57. 2018 Wednesday: The new St. Valentine’s Day Massacre occurred in Parkland, Florida, on this date when expelled, 19-year-old student, Nikolas Cruz, returned to his former high school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, with an AR-15 rifle and loads of ammunition.  He murdered 17 fellow students and faculty before fleeing and then being apprehended by local police.  People had warned the FBI about Cruz and yet, the FBI never investigated the case as they should have.
  58. 2019 Thursday: Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker stepped down from his post today as the 85th Attorney General William “Bill” Barr assumed the post. A Republican, Whitaker served under President Donald J. Trump from 11-07-2018 until today.  Attorney General Bill Barr served under the same president from today until he stepped down on December 20, 2020.  Meanwhile, former Deputy Director Andy McCabe of the FBI confirms to CBS News that HE was the rat who ordered the probe into President Donald J. Trump for ‘obstruction of justice’ following the president’s dismissal of McCabe’s former boss, former

Michael Flynn.  Elsewhere, Egypt has the ignominy to report the first case of the Chinese Virus on the African continent.  The COVID-19 Bat Flu is spreading like wildfire.
  60. 2021 Sunday: First of all, following his one-week suspension without pay by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, misogynist and bully Deputy Press Secretary T.J. Ducklo offers his resignation.  Good riddance.  Speaking of the ‘Biden administration,’ progressives are demanding the ‘Biden Justice Department’ pursue now acquitted not once but twice Donald J. Trump.  We surmise the reason for this is (1) because they hate the former president; (2) angry as hell (all the time); (3) have no clue as to how to push their agenda (which very few want); and (4) are mostly crazy, loony, feeble, or plain stupid so they need someone upon whom to divert attention away from them and onto the target.   Folks, we make a bold prediction: this administration- one that ‘won’ via questionable circumstances- is going to crash and burn far sooner than even they believe and are going to become a laughingstock not just here in our country but around the world.  Speaking of Mr. Trump’s victory, his impeachment lawyers said, “We’re going to Disney World!”  Have a wonderful time!
  61. 2021 Sunday A: The Biden White House warns Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece- Meena Harris- to stop linking her personal brand to the sitting vice president.  This is wrong so they are prohibiting (other than for Hunter Biden and his uncles and aunts- they’re okay).   Speaking of Vice President Harris, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says based upon the precedent the reprobate Democrats set in the SECOND UNWARRANTED IMPEACHMENT OF THE 45th PRESIDENT, once the GOP retakes the House of Representatives and reclaims the Senate (hopefully without keeping “Mitch the Maggot” McConnell in a position of leadership- he has to go) because she has said and done things that qualify her for kangaroo court impeachment.  So, too, does enfeebled old Joe- send him packing.   Meanwhile, recent in polls in California show that not only is dimwit Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric “Keep Everything Locked Down” Garcetti, but also Senator Dianne Feinstein’s approval ratings have hit their lowest mark ever- down in the thirties.  Poor Di-Fi.  What do all three have in common?  They’re Democrats.
  62. 2021 Sunday B: In the glorious metropolis of New York City, after four stabbings in the subway of homeless people- two of whom died- forever-wasted Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Democrat, has sent 500 members of the NYPD into the underground tunnels to keep order.  Now, they NEED the cops.  Wow.  Speaking of NYC, we learn that mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, failed presidential primary candidate, has a campaign manager with close ties to jihadist/activist Linda Sarsour.  This should disqualify Mr. Yang as of YESTERDAY.  Speaking of Anti-Semites, since Joe Biden ‘won’ on November 6, 2020, he has had phone calls with 10 world leaders (or whoever’s in his earpiece has)- including the Chi-Coms (who own him), Russia, and others- BUT NOT with Israel.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached out early to Mr. Biden but so far, the ‘Biden administration’ has not responded.  This is NOT good.  Israel is our number one ally in the region but the Anti-Semites in the progressive wing of the Democrat Party HATE the world’s sole Jewish state. We expect the BDS movement will return on steroids.
  63. 2021 Sunday C: RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel chides the Democrats for wasting so much time chasing a white whale- the impeachment of Donald Trump a second time- instead of working on things the American people need and demand.   Speaking of the GOP, the Louisiana Grand Old Party censures Senator Bill Cassidy for voting to convict President Donald J. Trump.  His counterpart, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski recognizes the danger she’s in in the 2022 Mid-Terms because she, too, voted to convict and the state GOP and the voters are pissed off at her.  We think former Governor Sarah Palin should primary the closet Democrat in 2022.   In similar news, the North Carolina GOP immediately censured Senator Richard Burr for his vote to convict.  He is retiring because like his former Senate colleagues Jeff Flake, R-AZ, and Little Bob Corker, R-TN, he knows he cannot win.   Mark Walker is running to take his seat in the primary.   Finally, another disgruntled loser, Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska is quoted as saying, “Tribalism is a hell of a drug.”  You need to go, too.  Oh- one other thing- Peter Navarro says that ‘Mike Pence’s betrayal of President Trump on January 6 will be seen as the worst in history.’  We agree.
  64. 2021 Sunday D: The Minnesota Court of Appeals drops a motion to delay the start of former Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin.  Might as well get it over with, folks.  Meanwhile, in Connecticut, people remember slain Yale graduate student, shot to death by an unknown perp.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court clears the way for the extradition of an American father and son to Japan for trial.  The pair helped former Nissan Motor Company Chairman Carlos Ghosn so he could evade trial on financial misconduct charges.  Michael and Peter Taylor- the father and son- hid Ghosn in a box on a private jet back in 2019 and got him into Lebanon, a country with no extradition treaty with Japan.  They’re in trouble.
  65. 2021 Sunday E: The Pentagon is looking to automate its warplanes and warships.  Cool.  Meanwhile, Tesla announces that its electric semitruck will have a 500 KWH battery pack that should enable the truck to travel long distances following heavy loads.  Question for Elon Musk: what about the Hyperloop?  Would not the Hyperloop from one end of the country to the other be the fastest way to transport human beings, animals, and cargo?  Come on, man!   In other news, Toni Breidinger becomes the first woman of Arabic descent to compete in the Indy 500.  Although she came in 18th place, it’s still a great debut and she hopes others will follow in her footsteps. 
  66. 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 108,715,375 confirmed cases, +273,125, 2,397,312, confirmed deaths, +6,864, and 60,986,298 confirmed recoveries, +193,753.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,837,755 confirmed cases, up 12,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 488,674 confirmed deaths, UP 212, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly two weeks now.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 158,969 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  67. 2021 Sunday G: 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: 3,479,029 confirmed cases, 46,865 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 331,033 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Michigan: currently, they have 628,956 confirmed cases, 16,119 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 724,380 confirmed cases, 5,388 confirmed deaths, and 655,519 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 2021 Sunday H: Speaking of the Wuhan Virus, the U.S. has deep concerns over the origins of COVID-19 in communist China, especially after the World Health Organization has tried to protect their bosses in Beijing.  National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan is concerned about the WHO claiming there’s ‘insufficient data to link the Chi-Com Virus to the Chi-Coms’ as well as the fact Beijing continues trying to tie the U.S. Army to the crimes THEY committed.  One thing the WHO did admit to is that the number of cases in Wuhan were 500-percent higher than the Chi-Coms reported.    
  69. 2021 Sunday I: In Oregon, four people who have received all vaccinations for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu have now tested positive for the virus.  Uh, okay?   Across the country, about 38 million people have received all injections of the vaccine.  Meanwhile, an aide of New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo cover up the numbers of deaths in the Empire State’s nursing homes is now going to work for the Biden administration and work on the same flipping thing.  These people should be in prison.  Together.  Oh- the Obamacare exchanges are going to reopen but without additional funding so the site can hire additional staff with which to peddle the greatest boondoggle in the history of the United States.  In other fascinating news about COVID-19, since Philadelphia locked down in March 2020, there have been 2,200 shootings and 500-plus homicides.  This year, they have already seen 60 people killed.  They blame this on the Chinese Virus, you know, the “Panda Pandemic.”
  70. 2021 Sunday J: In other interesting news from around the world, the people of Myanmar are dealing with a crime wave not seen since the last time the junta of generals took control of the government.  The junta has emptied many thugs from the prisons and have inserted them into the crowds of peaceful protesters demanding the release of their elected leaders and a restoration of their democratically-elected government.  The freedom-loving people say the infiltrators cause violence so things can get out of control  which then allows the military to crack down even harder.  We hate to say this, but it sounds sort of like what happened in the United States on January 6, 2021, when peaceful protesters walked to the Capitol and then mobs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter criminals stormed the Capitol, the one that NO one reinforced, even though weeks before, President Trump offered up to 10,000 National Guard troops.  Now we have walls around the Capitol and troops walking the streets.  Sounds rather like what’s going on in Yangon, Myanmar.
  71. 2022 Monday: Folks, stay tuned for whatever is to come next…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “The Essential Collection: Who Knows Where the Time Goes?”- came out on January 31, 2017, and featured a delightful collection of tunes from this legendary British folk-rock group.  Of all British bands of this nature, Fairport Convention- and the Strawbs- have gone the distance and what a distance it has been.  It must be horribly tough for archivists to cull through hours and hours and hours of music to compile this three-disc set, seeking the perfect tidbit, the perfect nugget, the perfect audio keepsake for fans- novice and veteran alike- to cherish forever.  We hope you will visit your favorite site for the absolute best in rock and popular music and consider adding it to your collection.  We think you will be extremely glad that you did.  Seek it out now.

44. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2022

In the final news of the night, we learned that the worthless loser, “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell- always playing both sides of the aisle- condemns Donald J. Trump after NOT voting to convict. He blasts him and blames him for all events that happened on January 06, 2021, before, during, and after the Capitol Hill Riots in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs infiltrated Trump supporters and carried out one of the all-time great False Flag operations in the history of the United States.

  56. 2017 Monday: The fallout from the opening phases of the Trump-Russia collusion scam begins as President Donald J. Trump accepts the resignation of his National Security Adviser Gen. Michael Flynn, over his ‘reported dealings with Russia.’  Thank you, FBI Director James Comey, thank you, Hillary Clinton, thank you, Barack Hussein Obama, James Clapper, John Brennan, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, and all the rest of the conspiratorial scum. 
  57. 2017 Monday A: The 77th U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin assumed office on this date.  He would serve from today until January 20, 2021.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Treasury Secretary Adam J. Szubin stepped down.  He served under President Trump from January 20, 2017, until today.  Meanwhile in Orange County, California, actor Harrison Ford crashes into a field while flying his small airplane.  Many suspect he was smoking the wild wood weed.
  58. 2018 Tuesday: In Israel, Israeli cops recommend the prosecution of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on allegations of bribery, fraud, and breach-of-trust bull crap.   Now, here’s something you normally don’t hear about- a United Airlines Flight 1175- flying from San Francisco, California, to Honolulu, Hawaii, upon coming into Oahu airspace requests and is given emergency landing following an engine cowling coming off during flight.  Yikes.  Meanwhile, Moscow demands YouTube and Instagram to remove videos of Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.
  59. 2019 Wednesday: Iran marks the 40th anniversary of their fascist Islamist republic by driving its citizens to participate in massive street marches while calling for the death of America and the death of Israel.  Who doesn’t love a good old Islamo-fascist street fest?  We should nuke this human fecal matter off the face of the globe.   Elsewhere, Venezuelan interim President Juan Guaidó announces that he is working to restore the ties of his nation with Israel, ties that were severed by anti-Semitic thug dictator Hugo Chavez. 
  60. 2020 Thursday:  The Israeli Air Force launches a strike on Iranian targets in the Syrian capital of Damascus.  The Syrian government claims to have intercepted the Israeli missiles but folks, if the Israelis set out to get someone or something, they get it or them.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, the Chinese Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Wuhan Flu, is running amok in communist China what with the reporting of 15,152 new cases of the coronavirus 254 deaths.  Elsewhere, Tokyo reports its first fatality related to this rapidly growing pandemic.  Finally, the government of Venezuela announces that it’s going to take the U.S. to the International Criminal Court on charges of ‘crimes against humanity.’
  61. 2021 Saturday: FIRST- the second impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump ends with a vote of 57-43, 10 votes shy of the number required to convict.  Seven scurrilous Republicans joined their ‘fellow’ Democrats to convict.  Richard Burr and Pat Toomey who are retiring as well as the typical RINOs- Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and now Bill Cassidy.  As for “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, at first, we heard he was going to vote to convict and then the AP said he wouldn’t.  We guess he licked his finger, held it up in the air, felt the direction public opinion was going, and elected NOT to vote to convict his wife’s former boss.  It’s over but is it ever over?  We expect to see the Dems via federal prosecutors sometime in late 2023-early 2024 file federal charges in court accusing the former president of these very same crimes, rather like what that putz Jimmy Comey did to Hillary Clinton by first clearing her of mishandling classified info, dirtying her up again, and then clearing a second time a couple of days out from the 2016 Presidential Election.   For the Dems to pull this off, they may have to keep Antifa members who participated in the January 6 riots so they can use them to testify against Trump, sort of like how they kept members of the Trump campaign locked up, you know, trying to ‘sweat them.’
  62. 2021 Saturday A: Earlier in the day, the Democrat House managers held a vote to call witnesses and by a margin of 55-45, it passed.  However, after some whispered speaking, they decided to include one little tidbit of ‘witness testimony’ from Jaime Herrera-Beutler in which, hearsay from a conference call between Kevin McCarthy and President Trump was admitted.  Both sides agreed to its inclusion but then nothing more on witnesses because Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, said that would open the door to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser, and to others who have control over securing the Capitol Building and the District of Columbia.  We would have loved to have seen Speaker Pelosi answer questions as to WHY, if she believe the capitol was in imminent danger, why she and Mayor “Bow Wow” Bowser did not take President Trump on his offer of 10,000 National Guardsmen.  Meanwhile, there was some speculation earlier today as to whether a SECRET impeachment vote could have occurred in the spirit of Soviet Union’s show trials that would have sunk former President Trump.  It did not come to fruition. 
  63. 2021 Saturday B: Senator Cruz went on to say that he believes left-wing social media blew up last night demanding witnesses because it was clear the “C-Team” House managers were blowing it big time.  Senator Cruz said that if the Dems wanted witnesses, the GOP would call numerous witnesses, so the House managers pulled back from this attempted ‘Hail Mary’ pass.  The senator also went onto say that he believes Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is dealing with out-of-control chaos in that last night, EVERYONE agreed that witnesses were not required whereas this morning Jamie Raskin and his fellow Democrat hacks were demanding them.  Cruz concluded that IF the Dems wanted witnesses, this could drag the bogus impeachment proceedings out to late February or into March, derailing much of Joe Biden’s agenda.
  64. 2021 Saturday C: Regarding the impeachment trial, after the trial wrapped up yesterday, CNN attempted to come to the rescue of the floundering House managers by dropping a story of the ‘phone call between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and President Trump in which, the president said that the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill rioters were more impassioned over the 2020 Elections than McCarthy was.  This led to Ms. Herrera-Beutler and the Senator Mike Lee phone call, strange information the Democrats tried to inject into the proceedings and then wisely retreated from. 
  65. 2021 Saturday D: Former Acting Deputy Secretary of DHS- Ken Cuccinelli- was telling Newsmax that ‘the DHS is responsible for securing all federal buildings and monuments in Washington, D.C., with the exception of two: the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Capitol, both of which have their own police forces.’  He went on to say that he ‘was shocked by the lack of preparedness on that day’ and pointed out that when help was offered to D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser, she rejected the offer, to stay away.  He pointed out that the National Guard is not a rapid deployment force, that it has to be pre-deployed and the armed for the mission at hand.  Technically, Nancy Pelosi does not have the authority to call the National Guard but could have told Mayor Bowser to do it which she would have then requested but none of this happened.  This is why so many are skeptical that the mob was spontaneous or that Trump called it into being.   
  66. 2021 Saturday E: Thane Rosenbaum told Newsmax that the Dems ‘blew the second impeachment’ by putting all their marbles in one basket, the charge of Donald J. Trump inciting insurrection against his own government.  He went on to say that ‘the president’s own words on January 6, 2021, cleared him of any and all charges of incitement.  Bill McGinley- former White House Cabinet secretary- says the Dems relied on newspaper stories which is bull crap.  He says they totally missed the mark whereas the defense team continually cited case law.  He also said that IF the Dems had gotten witnesses, they would have opened a Pandora’s box that would have destroyed them.  What they also didn’t want was the defense’s request that IF witnesses were to testify, they would have to do it in person.  Chef Lilah at the AICPENDBLOG.COM said it was all emotional and that listening to Manager Raskin’s attempts at sobbing made her sick.  
  67. 2021 Saturday F: Although no one in the Democratic Party ever expressed outrage at black men knocking out white people across the country, what they call “polar bear hunting,’ Vice President “Kooky Kamala” Harris is now speaking out against ‘rising waves of assaults on Asian Americans.’  We agree, it’s horrible and it must stop; however, why didn’t Kamala say something about all the attacks on white folks over the course of the past year?  Hypocrisy.   We also suspect that when the Oakland, California, attacker is apprehended, he will be a fellow Asian or other minority.  It always turns out like this…
  68. 2021 Saturday G: Oxford University says that it will test COVID-19 vaccine response among children for the first time as demands across the country for schools to reopen continue increasing.  Speaking of the Chi-Com virus, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo whose policies killed far too many people in his state’s retirement and nursing homes now finds himself forced to duck inquiring reporters who want the TRUTH.   In other news about the Wuhan Virus, the Pentagon approves 20 additional teams to carry the vaccine to greater numbers of the American people.  Next, the White House DEMANDS answers from the Chi-Coms as to early data on the virus.  They stepped up these demands following the World Health Organization’s backtracking from their original clearing of the Wuhan Institute of Virology as the source of the disease.
  69. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 108,428,619 confirmed cases, +384,681, 2,389,860, confirmed deaths, +11,872, and 60,778,149 confirmed recoveries, +273,410.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,825,007 confirmed cases, up 109,859 from yesterday’s reporting, 488,152 confirmed deaths, UP 4,457, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  NOTE- in the White House 25 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 158,757 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 45,138 people.  
  70. 2021 Saturday I: 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: 3,469,853 confirmed cases, 46,435 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 425 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 330,427 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Indiana.  Currently, they have 649,610 confirmed cases, 12,117 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 718,746 confirmed cases, 5,304 confirmed deaths, and 651,522 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Turkey.  The former Ottoman Empire has 2.579,816 confirmed cases, 27,377 confirmed deaths, and 2,468,419 confirmed recoveries. 
  71. 2021 Saturday J: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball results.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3534 with a $20 million jackpot on the line.   Here are the winning numbers: 18, 22, 38, 40, 42, and Mega 13.  Out of 127,647 winning tickets, the highest were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $13,746.  The three winning tickets were sold at: (1) Papa Liquor in Corona Del Mar, CA 92625; (2) Chevron in Pittsburgh, CA 94565; and (3) Country Store, Fresno, CA 93727.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball, Draw #820 with a $56 million jackpot on the line: 20, 28, 33, 63, 68, and Powerball 20.  Out of 51,833 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,022.
  72. 2021 Saturday K: In the final news of the night, we learned that the worthless loser, “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell- always playing both sides of the aisle- condemns Donald J. Trump after NOT voting to convict.  He blasts him and blames him for all events that happened on January 06, 2021, before, during, and after the Capitol Hill Riots in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs infiltrated Trump supporters and carried out one of the all-time great False Flag operations in the history of the United States.  Later, the earpiece in the ear of Joe Biden told Joe to say, ‘while the final vote did not lead to conviction, the substance of the charge is not in doubt.’  Who told you to mumble this, Joe?  Barack Obama or Xi Jinping?  He was not finished there, however- here is what else he said: “Even those opposed to the conviction, like Senate Minority Leader McConnell believe Donald Trump was guilty of ‘dereliction of duty and practically and morally responsible for provoking the violence unleashed on the Capitol.”  There you go- the False Flag effort continues.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he signs yet another executive order banning the use of “Wuhan Virus” when referring to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  We will try to remember that.
  73. 2022 Sunday: Today is Super Bowl LVI.  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Fairport Convention commemorated the band’s 50 years of existence, 1967-2017.  Aptly titled, “50:50 @ 50,” the album hit record store shelves on January 31, 2017, and features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Joining them on this endeavor were a bevy of guest musicians- including Led Zeppelin’s Robert Plant.  All 14 tunes on this amazing album latch onto one’s ears and thus one’s inner mind.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

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

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

ENDNOTES:

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

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

[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iv] We definitely look forward to promoting the music of Foreigner one of these days, perhaps in 2020?

[v] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[vi] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.

[vii] We look forward to sharing the music of not only Waylon Jennings but of Willie Nelson, and the rest of the Outlaw country music scene. We definitely hope you will keep your eyes open for the day when we do.  You will love them all.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Amigos, debemos hacer todo lo posible para echar a Joe Biden de la ciudad en un tren. Debemos elegir candidatos conservadores en noviembre, lo que significa que nuestra lucha comienza ahora. ¡Luchemos!

32. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022, UPDATE A

A new false flag operation is underway. Now the government is claiming that numerous HBC have received ‘bomb threats.’ This tells us that the FBI has a ‘Cesar Sayoc’ fall guy or a pack of them so as to gin up racial animosity and anger. Can we just stop this?

32. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022, UPDATE A:

NATIONAL FREEDOM DAY & FIRST DAY OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER

A new false flag operation is underway.  Now the government is claiming that numerous HBC have received ‘bomb threats.’  This tells us that the FBI has a ‘Cesar Sayoc’ fall guy or a pack of them so as to gin up racial animosity and anger.  Can we just stop this?  

  1. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 381,912,086 confirmed cases, +3,938,508, 5,705,154 confirmed deaths, +13,426 and 301,649,444 confirmed recoveries, +2,615,783.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 464,540 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 101,288 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 377 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.           
  3. 2022 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 8,142,456 confirmed cases, 80,495 confirmed deaths, and 8,161,961 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,664,055 confirmed cases, 65,271 confirmed deaths, and 3,678,818 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 220,356 confirmed cases, 1,181 confirmed deaths, and 219,175 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,337,081 confirmed cases, 10,846 confirmed deaths, and 1,326,235 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Louisiana: they have 1,174,941 confirmed cases, 15,744 confirmed deaths, and 1,159,197 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 2,966,451 confirmed cases, 8,926 confirmed deaths, and 2,510,076 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Mauritania, 135th country on the list: 58,298 cases of the virus, 956 confirmed death and 55,382 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                  
  5. 2022 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,405.24, UP 273.38 points (+0.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,346.00 UP 106.12 points (+0.75%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,546.54, UP 30.99 points (+0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $88.36 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,799.00 per troy oz., -2.50 (-0.14%) while the price of SILVER is $22.63 per troy ounce, +0.03 (+0.13%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,029.50 per troy oz, +6.30 (+0.62%) while the price of COPPER is $4.44 per pound, 0.00 (0.00%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,357.19 per troy oz., -5.93 (-0.25%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,850.00 per troy oz., +200.00 (+0.30%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,285,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,043.00 per USD/T, +22.50 (+0.73%). The price of ZINC is $3,637.00 per troy oz., +51.00 (+1.42%).   The price of COCOA is $2,613.00 per USD/T, +85.00 (+3.36%).  The price of LUMBER is $934.90 USD 1,000 board feet -45.00 (-4.59%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.36 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.89 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.53.    In Bhutanese Ngultrum, one greenback equals 74.80 and in Bolivar Soberano, a buck equals 4.52 and in Bolivian Boliviano, one dollar equals 6.81 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.638 per gallon, $3.402 in Florida, $4.397 in Hawaii, and $3.955 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Virginia- $3.202.  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 113th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Malawi: $5.325 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,004,735,468,124 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 Canada the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111,000,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- As things continue going from bad to worse along the border, Congressman Tony Gonzales, R-OH 16th congressional district, is now saying that Customs and Border Protection should be given the appropriate weapons with which to deal with drug-importing drones flying overhead from Mexico into the United States.   Speaking of CBP, the GOP is pressing U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to release the impending report on the mounted CBP officers accused of ‘whipping Haitian migrants.’  Next, Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor, Republican, says that ‘Joe Biden’s cavalier border act is harming ALL Americans.’  Finally, a new report says that black illegal aliens are outnumbering all other illegal aliens flooding into the country.
  8. 2022 Tuesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Officials in Kyiv say they just received 500 tons of defensive weaponry with which to ward off the Red Army, uh, excuse us, the Russian Bear.  Speaking of the Russians, Moscow denies responding to any U.S. proposals regarding Ukraine.  Our esteemed U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken is urging Moscow ‘to de-escalate the situation over the Ukraine.’   President Putin points out that the ‘U.S. and NATO continue ignoring Russia’s security demands regarding Ukraine.’  (Note- how many times do the Russians have to issue a red line on Ukraine before the West pays attention to it?)
  9. 2022 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II- In Canada, ever-growing FREEDOM PROTESTS continue into their fourth day with Ottawa shut down completely and fringe leader Justin Trudeau in hiding.  (Note- the wimpy PM claims he has ‘COVID-19 and must work remotely.  What a punk.  The Justin Trudeau regime helped the Chi-Coms, and the Democrats steal the 2020 Presidential Election, and this is precisely what they deserve and should get- thrown out of office).  Truckers in Australia are now organizing a convoy to descend atop their nation’s capital and demand an end to the Fascism that seems to be afflicting so many Western nations.   Meanwhile, U.S. State Department apparatchiks say the ’Iranians can have the necessary materials with which to build a nuclear weapon in a couple of weeks.’
  10. 2022 Tuesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News III- The Beijing Winter Olympics kick off on Thursday and Xi Jinping’s stooge, Vladimir Putin, is already in town so the dastardly duo can plot how they are going to start World War III.  We suspect the war will occur at some point during the Olympics so that ALL Western athletes will be held hostage.  Speaking of the Chin, they are forcing Taiwan’s Olympians to attend the games.  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘the Chi-Coms are focused on the propaganda victory they hope to get from hosting the world’s athletes.’  (FBI Director Chris Wray[xi] is warning all athletes to be extremely careful in what they do and say while on the soil of the totalitarian nation.  He also is encouraging them to use burner phones- leave your phones at home.  Amen).  The Chi-Coms claim to be separating Olympians from the public within some sort of ‘closed loop bubble.’  (Note- we wonder if everyone is going to get the COVID-19 anal tests?)
  11. 2022 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- Pfizer and BioNTech are seeking emergency approval for their vaccines to be given to children aged 5 and under.  Kids are not getting sick with this crap and if they are, they are surviving it, so stop with the social re-engineering already.  You are trying to wipe out the U.S. population to replace it with f**king illegal aliens!  STOP!  (Note- New Hampshire is going to vote on a bill that would allow pharmacies within the state to dispense Ivermectin through standing orders).  Speaking of Ivermectin, a Japanese pharmaceutical company says that Ivermectin shows great promise in combatting COVID-19.  Everyone already knew that already!)
  12. 2022 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II- Johns Hopkins University now says that ‘lockdowns did little to control the spread of COVID-19.’  We knew that, too.  Meanwhile, vaccine holdouts in the U.S. military are finding support online.  The tide is beginning to flow the other way, folks.
  13. 2022 Tuesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $53.07 (2) AstraZeneca: $57.68 (3) Merck & Company: $81.92 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $170.88 (5) Novavax: $95.18 (6) BioNTech: $179.60 (7) Moderna: $172.74.
  14. 2022 Tuesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $90.73 (2) General Dynamics: $212.87 (3) Boeing: $208.36 (4) Lockheed Martin: $386.99 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $370.58.
  15. 2022 Tuesday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.95 (2) DuPont: $77.89 (3) Honeywell: $205.34 (4) 3M: $167.45 (5) Teijen: $1,441.00.
  16. 2022 Tuesday O: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.23 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $30.93 (3) Beyond Meat: $66.88.

  18. 2022 Tuesday Q: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump’s PAC has raised $122 million what with $51 million of it raised in 2021.  Next, President Trump laid out the case that the media is mostly corrupt and fake.  President Trump also encouraged South Carolina voters to vote out Congressman Tom Rice, RINO-SC 7th congressional district’ in November.  The guy’s a rat.  Vote him out.  In other news, the Trump Family is going to fight all these punitive subpoenas the whacked-out Empire State Attorney General Letitia James is slapping on the Trumps.  In other Trump-related news, after Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, blasted Trump for promising pardons for the 01-06-2021 detainees, the 45th president called him a ‘moron’ (or words to that effect) because everyone should be concerned about the law, not what the Democrats want.    President Trump- in the first ad for former Senator David Perdue, R-GA, who is running for the governorship of the Peach State- has the 45th president saying that “Brian Kemp let us down.”
  19. 2022 Tuesday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- Joe Biden says he will give an update on Ukraine today although it appears he did not.  Maybe by midnight?   Next, Joe Biden proclaims Qatar as a ‘major non-NATO ally.’ Congressman Dan Meuser, R-PA 9th congressional district, says that Joe Biden’s ineptitude has ‘allowed the barbarians to reach the gates in Ukraine.’  Meanwhile, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, seeks to probe yet another Joe Biden corrupt deed: a massive government grant to a big mega-donor with which to build solar panels in f**king India, NOT the United States.  This is NOT good.  In other negative news for the senile commander-in-chief, the New York Times is suing the U.S. Department of State over its slackness in providing them with Hunter Biden’s emails while in the Ukraine.  They accuse the State Department of ignoring their FOIA requests.
  20. 2022 Tuesday S: Joe Biden Regime News I- After moronic White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki laughed off crime rates in the United States, the Fraternal Order of Police lit the stupid hack up.  What is wrong with this corrupt, asinine administration?  Oh, wait, it’s karma getting them for having stolen the 2020 Presidential Election and several Senate seats.  They deserve what they get which is why they are doubling down on crazy.  In other regime-related news, pressure to terminate missing-in-action Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra grows.  Everyone wants to know WTF he’s been doing to combat the ‘COVID-19 crisis.’
  21. 2022 Tuesday T: Joe Biden Regime News II- We learned today that White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain took it upon himself to leak news that U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer was going to retire.  What a loser.  In other negative news for the Biden regime, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that “Build Back Better is dead.”  Good.  In other news, Vice President Kamala Harris’ disapproval rating now stands at 55-percent and continues growing by the day.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is asking the U.N. Security Council to meet this Thursday to discuss North Korea’s uppity actions what with all the missile tests.
  22. 2022 Tuesday U: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- Former chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence testified before this fraudulent ‘select committee of losers’ regarding the ‘events of that day.’  Next, former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany handed over text messages from around this date to this bogus committee.   President Donald J. Trump had some things to say regarding this sham committee.  He noted that it should ‘investigate Mike Pence and House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.’  Amen. Our views towards VP Pence have definitely changed since that time.  We now believe he was always a rat.  In other news regarding this heap of crap committee, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, said that President Donald J. Trump floating pardons for the 01-06-2021 protesters was ‘music to her ears.’  Amen.
  23. 2022 Tuesday V: False Flag Operations- WARNING!  WARNING!  New false flag operation underway designed to provide sympathy for a crumbling Biden regime.  We now learn that 13 HBC have been targeted with bomb threats.  Oh, please.  Stop it already.  Here we go again, just in time for the present election cycle.  Either the Joestapo has found some pathetic loser such as Cesar Sayoc to ‘threaten historically black colleges with bomb threats’ or are making the phone calls themselves just to gin up anger among our fellow black American citizens.  Enough already.  Stop with RACE, RACE, RACE all the mother-flipping time.  You are causing so much damage to the country just to maintain power.  It must stop.  NOW.
  24. 2022 Tuesday W: Political News I- Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI, slammed Joe Biden’s choice to appoint a black woman to the U.S. Supreme Court as little more than ‘identity politics.’  Good for you, Tulsi.  She also said that ‘zealots of WOKEISM are trying to silence Joe Rogan.’  Right again, Tulsi.  In other news, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, is leading a bipartisan group with which to reform the 1887 Electoral Count Act.  Next, Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, announced that she is going to be running for another term.  People, vote this c**t out of office in November.  (Interesting note- her best bud, Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district says she’s leaving Twitter due to ‘all the negativities.’  Uh, okay, negativity you bring on yourself, little princess).
  25. 2022 Tuesday X: Political News II- Former President Barack Hussein Obama’s Priorities USA PAC donates $50 million to Democrats for digital advertising campaigns and to promote mail-in voting so the Dems can attempt to steal another election cycle.   In other news, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s assault on the 2nd Amendment is absolutely frightening.’  Next, we learned that former President George W. Bush has donated to the campaigns of Congresswoman ‘Lyin’ Liz’ Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large District, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK. Once a loser, always a loser.
  26. 2022 Tuesday Y: Political News III- A new poll in Florida says that BOTH President Donald J. Trump and “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, GOP, would beat Joe Biden to shreds if the election were held today.  Elsewhere, the Wisconsin GOP is fast-tracking some election bills to be in place by November.  In other news, Senator Ben Ray Luján, D-NM, suffered a minor stroke while being hospitalized.  Get well soon, senator, we wish you the best.   Finally, educators’ unions in Virginia are suing Governor Glenn Youngkin yet again over his executive order making the wearing of masks in school OPTIONAL.  What is wrong with these people?
  27. 2022 Tuesday Z: Federal and State Court News- A federal judge in the civil rights trial of the three killers of Ahmaud Arbery- recently convicted in Georgia on murder charges has rejected any chance of the convicted scumbags being granted plea deals.  These bums are going down- again.
  28. 2022 Tuesday AA: Big Tech News- Graham Nash joins Neil Young, Joni Mitchell, and Nils Lofgren in demanding his music be pulled from Spotify so long as Joe Rogan continues his extremely successful podcast.  Whatever happened to being anti-establishment, you frigging losers?  Now, you are tools of the state.  What the hell is happening to our world?  Another moron leapt atop the movement to ban Joe Rogan and that moron was the skank who never seems to be able to maintain a boyfriend, Taylor Swift.  These people are sleazebags and losers, enough is enough.
  29. 2022 Tuesday BB: Sports News I- Famed quarterback Tom Brady made it official today- he’s retiring after 22 years.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, fired Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores has slapped the National Football League with a lawsuit alleging racism on the part of the league in the way it treated him.
  30. 2022 Tuesday CC: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1734 what with a $20 million jackpot on the line: 11, 24, 38, 62, 66, and Mega 01.  Out of 53,947 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $14,473.
  31. 2022 Tuesday DD: Wokeism-Woke-Wokies- After dingbat View cohost Whoopi Goldberg apologizes for being an Antisemitic bigot, calls continue to grow for a Jewish cohost to sit on the show.  Whoopi said that what the Nazis did to the Jews during the Holocaust had ‘nothing to do with race but was one group of white people eradicating another group of white people.’  Many took her comments to mean that since it was a ‘tiff between white folks, it was no big deal.’  What a flipping moronic dumb-ass.   Ah, well, the network suspended the old bag- with pay- for two weeks.  How about closing the show?  That would be so much better.  A new FIRE poll says that a vast majority of Americans view cancel culture as a growing threat to the nation.  This is why we must stop it.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s next album, “Festival Bell,” came out on January 18, 2011, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 14 glorious tracks, 10 of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

  62. 2017 Thursday: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto cancels a meeting with President Donald J. Trump that was going to occur next week, citing the American president’s promise of building a wall between the two countries so the U.S. can stop the mass invasion from which, Mexico’s corrupt leaders profit in a variety of ways.  In response, President Trump calls for a 20-percent tariff on ALL GOODS flowing north from Mexico.
  63. 2018 Friday: Although creators of cryptocurrency tell us ‘how safe it is,’ hackers manage to steal $535 million of NEM cryptocurrency from the Japanese exchange Coin Check.    
  64. 2019 Saturday: In order to protect their satrap in Venezuela- Nicolas Maduro- the Russians begin flying in private military contractors to provide security for the slow-witted Venezuelan dictator.  This leads the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a speech before the United Nations for the world’s countries to make their stance known whether they support the illegitimate government in Caracas or not.  The U.S. does not but the Russians, Chi-Coms, Cuba, and other Third World hellholes do.  Concurrently, the Bank of England prohibits the Maduro government from withdrawing more than a billion in gold reserves until the dispute between Maduro and Juan Guaidó as to whom won the election is resolved.
  65. 2020 Sunday:  Afghan government forces backed up by Coalition forces have had enough of the ongoing Taliban violence and launches operations against Taliban forces across nine provinces.  The body toll of the Islamists for the day is about 51 with no sign that Afghan troops going to give them an inch.  Meanwhile in Syria, Syrian government forces are cleaning out jihadists and other terrorists in Idlib Province as the government makes a concerted push to reclaim towns and villages from remaining rebels.   Elsewhere, someone gets ahold of an unreleased portion of the manuscript of former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, “The Room Where It Happened.”  In the unauthorized portion, Bolton says ‘Trump told him that unfreezing aid to Ukraine hinged on whether the government of Volodymyr Zelensky would provide dirt on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to the administration.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: As Senator Patrick Leahy, D-VT, swears in U.S. senators for the upcoming ‘impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump,’ West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is joined by Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema vow NOT to vote to overthrow the filibuster as knuckle-dragging Senate “Majority Leader” Chuck Schumer, D-NY, seeks to do.  Speaking of the upcoming second impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump, the Senate holds a vote on whether to impeach or not to impeach the 45th president.  By a vote of 55-45 the Senate votes to move ahead with five of those voting in favor to hold the trial are Republicans: Senators Pat Toomey, Mitt Romney, Susan Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and Susan Collins, respectfully of Pennsylvania, Utah, Alaska, Nebraska, and Maine.  Losers.
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Speaking of impeachment, noted legal scholar, professor, and trial attorney Alan Dershowitz says that ‘if the chief justice does not preside at the trial, it is BOGUS, that it’s little more than political theater.’  The famed jurist quoted Abraham Lincoln’s famous words regarding the conquered South after the Civil War: ‘with malice towards none and with charity for all,’ noting that the Democrats are doing the exact opposite in their treatment of the former president, his supporters, and those who disagree with what the Democrats are doing.  Regarding the sham impeachment, President Trump is adding another attorney from South Carolina to his defense team- former federal prosecutor Deborah Barbier to his bevy of lawyers. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: Subsequently- regarding the upcoming impeachment trial of President Trump, 29 Republican senators will oppose it to their utmost.  Mark Halperin- questions whether Mitch McConnell is reading accurately the mood of the GOP and is now wavering on earlier comments that he would ‘vote to convict Mr. Trump.’  “Cocaine Mitch” is one of the biggest snakes in the U.S. Senate and although he has done some good things, he is little more than an a**-kissing POS of the Democrats.  Trump helped him win HIS election and much like the scorpion on the back of the frog crossing the river, Senate MINORITY Leader McConnell stabbed him in the back.  Kentucky- recall this scumbag NOW.  If you can.
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” “CM” and Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Chuck Schumer have arrived at a power-sharing deal that will see all committees with equal numbers of Republicans and Democrats but with Democrats serving as the chairmen-and-women.   Speaking of losers, ‘President’ Joe Biden says, “The impeachment trial must go on,” mumbling whatever his earpiece tells him to say such as ‘if the trial does NOT go forward, it could damage the nation.’  Meanwhile, former President Donald J. Trump has opened an Office of the Former President in Florida, an office with which, he will find qualified conservative candidates to primary RINO scumbags in upcoming elections.  Yesterday, he pledged his full-fledged support to Sarah Huckabee Sanders to run for governor of Arkansas in 2022.  Visit www.45office.com. Contact Mr. Trump there.  In other possible election news, many believe Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan will seek Senator Rob Portman’s seat in 2022 as will Georgia Congressman Doug Collins the seat of pro-China RINO Governor Brian Kemp.  We expect both to win.
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: Kevin McCarthy mocks ‘President’ Joe Biden’s calls for ‘unity.’  The ‘46th president mumbles what his handlers tell him to say then does as they tell him to do which is NOT UNITY.   Google and Microsoft are suspending donations to all Republicans who did not accept the results of the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  Elsewhere, the Goya Foods Board of Directors censures CEO Robert Unanue over his unabashed support of President Donald J. Trump.  In other ‘President’ Biden news, his press secretary- Jen Psaki- does not seem to know a great deal.  When asked by reporters as to WHY the ‘Biden administration’ is not going to stay tough on preventing the Chi-Coms from penetrating the U.S. power grid, she had no answers just like she had no answers regarding Antifa and their continued running amok around the country.  Speaking of Antifa, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler had to pepper spray a POS Antifa punk for getting in his face in a restaurant.  Good for you.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: Antifa-infiltrated Capitol Hill protesters continue flaunting their successes at the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6.  Speaking of the event, the woman who ran off with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s laptop may face a permanent Internet ban once she is out of legal jeopardy.   Speaking of Internet and social media bans, Twitter removes- permanently- the account of My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell’s account yet after ‘removing the account,’ it began retweeting all manner of left-wing messages so how does one lose their account to then have some other entity begin using it?  Evil.  Meanwhile, Florida Democrat Congresswoman Stephanie Murray has a bill that will PROHIBIT anyone with ideas the ruling Democrats don’t like- such as belief the 2020 Presidential Election was full of fraud or in QAnon which does not sound all that far-fetched from holding any kind of elective office or work in government at any level.  Wow.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: A recent Gallup Poll shows that 89-percent of American citizens are dissatisfied with the country.  Go figure: stolen elections, fake news media, social media bans, censorship, harsh restrictions, lockdowns, and Antifa and BLM mobs running amok in the streets, who the hell wouldn’t be?  Meanwhile the head of the Anti-Defamation League wants Twitter to ban the Grand Ayatollah Khamenei for constantly tweeting he wants to kill Jews and erase Israel from the face of the planet.   Elsewhere, Russia says ‘vigorous efforts needed to extend Russia-U.S. New Start arms control treaty.’  Also, as the ‘Biden administration’ presses Russia on releasing Alexei Navalny and imprisoned protesters basically puts it red fist in ‘President Biden’s’ face and brushes the senile fool off.   Finally, former Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker labels the People’s Republic of China as the “New Evil Empire” due to their appalling human rights record.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Alleged Chi-Com spy and honeypot participant Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell says, “The FBI cleared me of any hint of conspiring with the Chi-Coms against my country.’  Bulls**t, no one has cleared you of anything.  In other political news, people are championing Fox News Channel’s chief meteorologist Janice Dean as a potential GOP candidate for the governor of New York seeing as how she is immensely popular and Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo killed both her father-and-mother-in-law by putting COVID-19-infected patients into their rest home.  Yikes.  “Killer Cuomo” had better watch out…
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: The Vatican clears retired U.S. Bishop Joseph Hart of seven abuse charges.  Hart served the church in Cheyanne, Wyoming.  Next, we learn the new iPhone can screw up pacemakers and cause heart attacks.  Love that Chi-Com technology.   Next, we learn that the TSA now has been politicized as Jennifer Kerns of All-American Radio told Newsmax TV: TSA officials are blocking Global Entry of persons who served in the former Trump administration.  WTF!   Elsewhere, in a 78-22 vote in the U.S. Senate, Anthony Blinken is confirmed as the next U.S. Secretary of State even though the Chi-Coms have dumped loads of cash- tens of millions of dollars- into his back pocket.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of State Daniel Bennett Smith stepped down from office on this date.[vi]  Also, Janet Yellen takes the oath of office which makes her the official U.S. Treasury Secretary.     In other news, 200 House Republicans vote to uphold the Hyde Amendment which prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars to fund the Pro-Death Movement.
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: In other shameful news, communist Jane Fonda is set to receive the Golden Globes Cecil B. DeMille Award.  Big whoop.  Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki- not wearing a mask and repeatedly wiping her nose with her bare hand- denies that her boss, ‘President’ Joe Biden ever labeled Donald Trump’s travel ban for COVID-19 as xenophobic or racist.  Uh, but he did, Jen!  In another incident of plagiarism, ‘President’ Joe Biden says he will ‘use the military to step up deliveries of the Chi-Vi vaccine.’  Your predecessor already set this in motion.   Also, regarding the Chi-Vi, Dr. Anthony Fauci- the highest-paid putz in the federal government- says he was disturbed by his former boss’ comments on the value of bleach and other disease-killing chemicals.  He maintains the 45th president was talking about ingesting such substances; however, if you listen to the tape, the president was discussing the therapeutic effects of such items and it’s too bad we could not find something that could do the same for the human body.    Finally, Kayleigh McEnany is set to return to Fox News Channel but now, that job offer is on hold.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: DAY SEVEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to discover what is going on across the country…well, you will all want to know this: the Fake News Media has now gone down the rabbit hole what with the Fresh Start program in which, much like George Orwell wrote in his classic book, “1984,” will rewrite ALL past news stories to remove unfavorable news about Democrats and will rehabilitate their images and history of doings.  ‘President’ Joe Biden and ‘Vice President’ Kamala Harris definitely need much rehabilitation because both put loads of minorities into prison with their racist criminal justice policies or their enforcement of those policies.   Meanwhile, far-left former Barack Hussein Obama first AG Eric Holder urges his fellow Democrats to STACK THE U.S. SUPREME COURT NOW.  And you honestly believe these people LOVE the United States of America as founded.
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: Governor Gavin Newsom of California is scrambling to reopen California as the move to recall the little POS now has more than 1.2 million signatures.  The problem for him is that very few liked him from the start nor are they in line with his harsh lockdowns and restrictions so when we hit 1.5 million signatures, the man is going to lose office like Gray Davis- another Democrat- did back in 2003 and citizens of the state liked him far more than the current bozo ruining the state.  (PS- he’s Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- that says so much).  Elsewhere, New Mexico- a state that threw in with “Pro-China Joe” Biden- is now going to feel the brunt of the ‘46th president’s’ energy policies losing thousands of jobs as the Green New Deal politics come to the fore.  Time to find ‘Republican judges’ and do to the Democratic-Socialists what they always do to Republican administrations and that is to hammer, hammer, hammer them with injunction after injunction after injunction.  We can do it so let’s do it!  Texas is beginning to do it NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday L: ‘President’ Joe Biden orders an end to publicly-funded private prisons.  Yet another XO, folks, 20 by our count.  Meanwhile, Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the Dems may advance a COVID-19 Relief Bill sans any GOP participation.  NOTE- whatever relief they give the American people, the American people will have to pay income taxes on whatever amount it is.  Elsewhere, former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii labels ‘John Brennan and Adam Schiff as domestic enemies of the United States.  Next, a federal judge hammers ‘President’ Joe Biden’s XO putting all deportations on hold for 100 days.  About flipping time, federal judges, how about an injunction to overturn the halt to the Keystone XL Pipeline.  Finally, “Big Brother Joe” Biden vows to fight systemic racism in the country, racism that he and his former boss, Barack Hussein Obama had eight flipping years to fix and didn’t.  Of course, systemic racism does not exist, why do millions of people seek to come to our country?  Because it’s a wonderful place.
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 100,032,461 confirmed cases, +445,377, 2,149,818, confirmed deaths, +13,259, and 55,239,856 confirmed recoveries, +319,710.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,604,046 confirmed cases, up 229,745 from yesterday’s reporting, 427,069 confirmed deaths, UP 3,458, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP 36,070.
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,216,365 confirmed cases, 37,577 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,903 confirmed cases, 401 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 306,499 confirmed cases, 4,221 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: District of Columbia: currently, they have 35,700 confirmed cases, 888 confirmed deaths, but NO mention confirmed recoveries- come on, Mayor Bowser, share the figures.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 613,340 confirmed cases, 4,498 confirmed deaths, and 534,485 confirmed recoveries. 
  81. 2021 Tuesday O:  THE BIDEN AGENDA IS DESTROYING THE STOCK MARKET.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,937.504 DOWN 22.96 points (-0.74%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,626.07, DOWN 9.93 points (-0.73%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,849.62, DOWN 5.74 points (-0.15%).  The price of GOLD is $1,849.60 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.50 per troy ounce, -0.038 (-0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,107.20 per troy oz, -0.20 (-0.02%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.002 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,325.00 per troy oz, -21.90 (-0.93%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.17 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.30%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000031.  In other economic news, Target is giving all hourly workers a bonus of $500.  Don’t forget- you will pay taxes on this money…
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s Department of Justice ends the ‘zero tolerance’ rule for illegal aliens seeking to storm the country.   Elsewhere, after writing a BS story in the New Yorker Magazine, the company had to return the National Magazine Award.  One leftwing site after another lies, steals other people’s works, and spreads propaganda, yet they remain open while leftists pursue bloggers like us.  Meanwhile, a tornado touched down in Alabama killing one person and injuring at least 17 others.   Next, the U.S. is seriously considering forcing everyone who wants to board an airliner to take the Chi-Vi test, you know, the nasal swab for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Finally, the man given the nod to take John Robert’s place in the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump- Vermont Democrat Senator Patrick “Loose Lips” Leahy- suddenly is carted off to the hospital for an unspecified illness.  Crabs?
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1628: 29, 49, 56, 66, 67, and Mega 24.  Out of 76,613 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $7,078 apiece.
  84. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

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

[iii] Not sure when we will promote the music of Van Halen but when we do, we will also present the music of Sammy Hagar so please stay tuned.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

58. 2021 Friday A: And so, it begins: Federal prosecutors seek Donald Trump Jr. for ‘questioning.’ Questioning for what, pray tell? Meanwhile, a Trump deputy in the White House is reassuring staffers in the era of Cancel Culture that they will be ‘okay,’ even as Harvard is on the edge of bowing to its students and stripping Kayleigh McEnany of her advanced law degree.

TRUMP.  (Note- those 10 representatives and four of their counterparts in the U.S. Senate- Lisa Murkowski, RINO-Alaska, Ben Sasse, RINO-Nebraska, Pat Toomey, RINO-Pennsylvania, and Mitt Romney, RINO-Utah, we believe will make it onto the list of nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award to be awarded in January 2022).
