1978 Thursday: The neo-Nazis call off their march through Skokie, Illinois. For weeks leading up to their planned march through a Jewish neighborhood filled with Holocaust survivors, there was major uproar across the nation and the world. Even the ACLU defended the Nazis planned march through Skokie. They finally called it off when the threat of anti-Nazi violence became so intense, they decided it wasn’t worth the trouble.

  63. 2018 Friday: White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant; the co-owner said the move came at the request of homosexual employees who objected to Sanders’ defense of President Donald J. Trump’s effort to bar transgender people from the military.  Meanwhile, in that well-known ‘bastion of freedom,’ communist China, Chinese social media blocks comedian John Oliver after he mocks Xi Jinping, now president for life.  Ah, gee, can’t take a little ribbing?  Communists lack senses of humor.
  64. 2019 Saturday: A coup attempt in Ethiopia fails with four government officials- including Army Chief of Staff General Seare Mekonnen.  Meanwhile, the United States announces that it’s going to slap additional sanctions on Iran so as to prohibit them from ever obtaining nuclear weapons.
  65. 2020 Monday: Law enforcement in Chicago reports that over the Father’s Day weekend, 102 people were shot, 14 died, including a 3-year-old boy sitting in his father’s car.  Yet NO one is marching in the streets attacking the murderous thugs who commit these heinous crimes, NO one.  They only care when a white cop shots a black brother.  WTF, Chicago?  Wake the f**k up and stop this black-on-black genocide.  Meanwhile, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin announces a plan to reclaim CHOP from the riotous scum inhabiting this area.  Two people were shot in the Occupied Zone over the weekend with one death.  Have the cops cleaned this human pond scum OUT?  Finally, in Washington, D.C., violent mobs attempt to tear down the statue of General and President Andrew Jackson, the man who won the Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812 and then became president.  In response to the growing Chinese-funded (or so we hear) unrest, the White House evacuated all reporters.  No one seems capable of stopping the communists.  Americans will have to do it for the trembling GOP politicians.
  66. 2020 Monday A: The Xi Jinping Bat Flu continues running amok, taking names and lives.  Thank you, communist China, thank you.  Here are today’s stats: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Here are the stats for the United States, thanks to communist China: 2,350,756 confirmed cases, 122,085 confirmed deaths, and 732,227 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 178,054 confirmed cases, 5,515 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In the Aloha State, here are the numbers: 814 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 651 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Evergreen State, home of Jenny Durkin and CHOP, here are the stats: 28,834 confirmed cases, 1,276 confirmed deaths, and like California, Jay Inslee releases NO number of the confirmed recoveries.

  72. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.238 per gallon, $2.940 in Florida, $3.981 in Hawaii, and $3.640 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Nebraska: $2.906.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Peru: $3.853 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,436,907,638,042 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Norway, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xix]
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Friends, today is Day No. 91 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the gibbering orangutan, to be in charge of the out-of-control border calamity and to have yet shown up for a single day on the job.  Where is this corrupt woman?  Why won’t she show up and do the job that Joe Biden’s earpiece bestowed on her?   Speaking of the chittering hyena, 56 Republican congressmen-and-women have signed a letter demanding the prattling loser known as “Willie Brown’s Mattress” be removed from her gig as ‘border czar.’  Meanwhile, former CBP commissioner Mark Morgan says the Biden regime’s ending of Title 42 of the public health order to turn away sick illegals back to whence they came is sending the wrong message to the ongoing tidal wave of illegal aliens.
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– As violence continues to explode across Afghanistan, the Biden regime reaffirms the U.S. troop withdrawal will continue.  Elsewhere, Carrie Lam- Beijing’s stooge running Hong Kong- says she backs the Chi-Com crackdown on pro-democracy press outlets.  In other foreign and overseas news, conservative British icon Nigel Farage told Newsmax ‘don’t trust anything Boris Johnson says.’  Amen.  BoJo seems like a political hack.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘only strong leadership in Washington, D.C., can prevent another Chi-Com lab-engineered pandemic.’  It’s not going to happen as long as decrepit Joe Biden continues to reside in the White House.  Dr. Peter Daszak- president of the EcoHealth Alliance- has been removed from the Lancet’s COVID-19 origins commission as more and more evidence continues coming to light about the Chinese Communist Party’s close ties with the corrupt doctor- the net continues closing around Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and his minions.   Moving on, the White House now thinks it’s not going to reach its vaccination goal of getting most Americans at least one jab by July 4, Independence Day.  Folks, none of us- and more importantly- most of our loved ones- are not going to get the damned shots.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  President Donald J. Trump says that he has NOT conceded the 2020 Presidential Election nor should he.
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: Joe Biden News– One America News reported this morning that Joe Biden can no longer address the news media according to his handlers.  His nursemaids have told him to zip his lip and avoid speaking to the press.  Okay.  When can reporters speak to the voice in his EARPIECE?  The earpiece is the REAL president.  Many believe it’s another illegitimate president, #44.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News I– A Harvard CAPS-Harris poll says that ’52-percent of Americans (a slim majority, most likely heavily weighted in favor of Democrats) believe that usurper Joe Biden made some headway with Russia’s Vladimir Putin when the two world leaders met.  Uh, okay.  Even though polling elsewhere says differently, Gallup Polling reports that 56-percent of the American people (99.99-percent Democrat-weighted) approves of the job that the ‘drooler-in-chief’ Joe Biden is doing.  What job?  Who has seen him since he returned from Europe?  He can’t even speak to the press anymore.  WTF?
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News II– A recent poll of possible GOP nominees for 2024 should President Donald J. Trump not seek a third term shows that former South Carolina governor and ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, is around the bottom of potential candidates.  Go figure.   IF President Trump does not seek a third term, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis will win the job hands-down, folks.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News III– An Iowa court permanently blocks the state’s 24-hour waiting period prior to getting an abortion.  Take the case to the appellate level and then to the high court if need be.   Elsewhere, a New Jersey school district says it will revisit its plan to erase ALL holiday names on its scholastic calendars.  Meanwhile, two Georgia counties recover costs from President Donald J. Trump’s election lawsuit challenges.   In other political news, ‘climate protesters’ protesting outside Senator Ted Cruz’s home in Houston, Texas, became unruly (go figure) leading to the arrests of eight of the little pansies.
  81. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– Watchdog group, Protect the Public’s Trust is urging federal prosecutors to investigate ‘Joe Biden’s’ nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)- Tracy Stone-Manning alleging she has misled the Congress over a tree-spiking scheme back in 1989 to put an Idaho forest off-limits to loggers.  She claims no involvement in the matter when it looks as if she was heavily involved.  This woman cannot be confirmed to this post, there are already too many nuts employed in this ersatz regime starting at the very top.  Anyone who would ‘spike’ trees with iron rods so as to damage saws and injure people is unfit for any post, even dog catcher.
  82. 2021 Thursday O: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Outrage continues to grow over Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, longtime membership in a WHITES ONLY Rhode Island beach club.  When questioned about his membership, he more or less waved it off.  However, were the offender a Republican, fake news channels around the world would be on fire.  (Note- let us imagine if it were President Donald J. Trump or one of his family members that was a member of an exclusive all-WHITE club- can you imagine the riots that would explode across the country as the paid thugs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter took to the streets and do what they do best- sow division, mayhem, and violence?  Yet, no one says a peep about the slow-witted Senator Whitehouse.  Why is that?)  In other Woke News, singer Billie Eilish[xx] is begging forgiveness after a video resurfaced showing her mouthing racist slurs.  What is it with all these WOKIES who have racist, homophobic skeletons in their closets?
  83. 2021 Tuesday P: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Portland, Oregon, is planning a big ad buy so it can encourage tourists to visit their devastated city.  Come, and see the mob violence, come, and see burning buildings, looted stores, come participate in the nailing in of federal law enforcement officers into government buildings and then see them set ablaze.  What the hell is wrong with these people?  Who the f**k wants to visit a once-lovely city on the Pacific coast which has become loony tunes local?  The leftists running amok in the city must be rounded up and sent to slave labor camps for purification of their souls.  Arbeit Macht Frei!  Losers… In other whacked-out news, prosecutors are looking into charging Roger Stone with inciting a riot because he happened to be in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021, and was seen taking selfies with numerous fans.  Wow.  Is that all it takes to be charged with a crime in Joe Biden’s America?  Whoa…
  84. 2021 Tuesday Q: Big Tech News– The Center for American Liberty files a lawsuit against both Twitter and Senator Alex Padilla (then California secretary of state), D-CA, over their collusion in deciding what speech would be censored regarding the 2020 Presidential Election.  Sue the living crap out of both Twitter and the appointed senator.  Meanwhile, Rep.  Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says that Microsoft is ‘out to get conservatives.’  In other BIG TECH NEWS, despite being banned from Facebook (like that’s a BIG DEAL, Team Trump advertisements continue to appear on the ‘social media’ (intelligence-gathering site for the Chi-Coms) site.
  85. 2021 Tuesday R: Health And Medical Alerts– A new report says that nursing home deaths skyrocketed last year going up by an astonishing 32-percent, most of them occurring in three BLUE states: California, Washington, and New York thanks to governors who sought to do some social (and economic) engineering by knocking off the elderly, the infirm, and the mentally incapacitated which would allow them to save money- much like the Nazis did during the 1930s- and its diversion into WOKE programs.
  86. 2021 Tuesday S: NASA, Space, and UFO News– NASA is begging for a $5 billion cash infusion from the Joe Biden regime for infrastructure related to its future space missions.  NASA boss Bill Nelson is begging his old Senate pal, slobbering Joe Biden for the miniscule amount which we suspect he’s NOT going to get.  Joe Biden wants the Russians and Chi-Coms to become the dominant space powers.
  87. 2021 Tuesday T: U.S. Senate News I– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says he ‘favors debating the H.R. 1 / S. 1 ‘voting rights election grab bill’ which the Republicans say they will oppose with all their might.   The voting bill appears as though it’s on life support which had progressives blasting the Biden regime for failing them.  Wow.  Regarding this power grab, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says the GOP will ‘do everything it can to stop this crap bill from becoming law.’  Next, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-ME, says that she will ‘vote against’ Joe Biden’s nominee for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms (and Explosives) David A. Chipman.  Chipman is flipping crazy, he wants to seize all firearms.  Not going to happen.   Meanwhile, a vote on War Powers in the Senate now won’t happen until sometime in July.
  88. 2021 Tuesday U: U.S. Senate News II– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, who led the failed fight to stop race-baiter Joe Biden nominee for the Office of Personnel Management- Kiran Ahuja- will ‘bring a new era of racial engineering into the federal government.’  In other U.S. Senate news, Joe Biden’s aides fled the world’s greatest deliberative body after being incapable of arriving at some sort of deal on ‘infrastructure.’  Update, the U.S. Senate votes to BLOCK further debate on the “For the People Act.”  Excellent.  Elsewhere, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, won’t back down from her position defending the Senate filibuster rule as it is important for BOTH PARTIES down the road.  Good for you.
  89. 2021 Tuesday V: Fake News– U.S. takes down Iran-linked news websites, citing disinformation.  The Iranians threaten, “WE KILL YOU!  WE KILL YOU!” like Jeff Dunham’s Achmed the Dead Terrorist.  F**k the Iranians.
  90. 2021 Tuesday W: Texas State News– Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Republican, says that Texas stepping up to build the border wall is on behalf of all Americans, not just those living in the Lone Star State.
  91. 2021 Tuesday X: Economic News– Rep. Ron Estes, R-KS 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is creating a massive economic crisis.’
  92. 2021 Tuesday Y: Sports News– The Harlem Globetrotters have requested to join the National Basketball Association.  IF the NBA adds them, they will become the dominant team and they also have women on the team so how would the NBA respond to that?  Merge with the WNBA?  Now that would be something because then, they could add some additional teams to towns deserving of them like Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, San Diego, Seattle, Honolulu, Oildale, and…Beijing.
  93. 2021 Tuesday Z: U.S. Military News– We learned today that Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada this past June 17 held the first-ever DRAG QUEEN show for benefit of U.S. military personnel stationed there.  WTF, people, are we becoming the ‘ancient Greeks?’  Must we hope for the Chi-Coms, the Russians, or even the jihadists to take over so we can end this frigging madness?  Enough is f**king enough already, folks, this is insane.  Elsewhere, a World War II Medal of Honor recipient was able to see his grandson graduate from boot camp.
  94. 2021 Tuesday AA: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1670 with a $40 million pot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 01, 26, 48, 51, 59, and Mega 25.  Out of 46,604 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $12,455.
  95. 2022 Wednesday: Today is Day #518 of the illegal Joe Biden regime.  They can tell us we’re all crazy but we know the truth.  There are not enough prisons with which to imprison everyone unless they invite in Chi-Com troops to patrol the streets…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next studio album by the Beach Boys- their 25th if we are keeping track- is the self-titled “The Beach Boys,” an album that came out on June 10, 1985.  Unfortunately, while we have defended other albums in their catalog that others pan like the losers they are, we cannot defend this one.  Recorded and released after the drowning death of an inebriated Dennis Wilson, the album simply lacked the punch others possessed.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  A cast of ‘thousands’ rounded out the lineup including many of the touring members, among others.  The only song upon which we will comment is the opener: “Getcha Back.”  Penned obviously to harken back to the ‘good old days,’ it’s a decent track but not worth the investment of your hard, cold cash.  Still, seek it out on mp3 and consider downloading it so you can listen to a moment in musical history and then move onward.

  55. 1999 Thursday: The International Court in The Hague, Netherlands, indicts Slobodan Milosevic and four others for war crimes and crimes against humanity for killing Muslims in Kosovo—we say the Serbs should have killed more of them!

  57. 2006 Saturday: A massive earthquake slams Java in Indonesia, killing at least 6,600 people and wounding countless others as well as leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.  Elsewhere, the gay pride folks once again take to the streets of Moscow, trying to get that country to enter into the 21st century but it goes awry as usual.  Mayor Yuri Luzhkov announced that ‘homosexuality is unnatural’ and banned the long-anticipated gay rights parade.  This led to the police taking to the streets, beating, and arresting people- including members of the European Parliament.  Russia does not want this and the more you push it the more violent the outcome is going to be.  Maybe things will be better next year.
  58. 2007 Sunday: Some places you can get away with stuff and in others you cannot: after the Moscow mayor- Yuri Luzhkov- just like last year banned a gay pride event and parade in his city, apparently the participants failed to get the message, Moscow police go out and beat up Russian gay rights activists and foreign dignitaries who came to celebrate a change in Russia (or so they thought).  (Note- there aren’t going to be any changes in Russia anytime soon).
  59. 2008 Tuesday: Problems are going on between the Argentine government and grain farmers.  The problems are over the prices the farmers get when they sell their grain for export and since there is no answer to this problem, the farmers announce all sales will HALT between May 28 and June 2.  Let us hope there is an end to this crisis.
  60. 2009 Wednesday: In Lahore, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ carry out another suicide bombing that delivers 35 True Believers up to Allah sooner than any of them had planned and injures at least 250 other poor souls.  WTF!   Meanwhile, in an extremely curious move, Russia agrees to supply U.S. civilian nuclear reactors with $1 billion worth of uranium.
  61. 2010 Thursday: The Israeli government calls the ambassadors of several nations- Sweden, Cyprus, Ireland, Greece, and Turkey- on the carpet for launching a flotilla of ‘aid’ to the Gaza Strip, a territory the Israelis have kept under blockade for the past three years due to their terrorist operations against their country.  These countries compiled a ‘fleet’ of eight ships- four of which were cargo ships carrying ‘supplies’ to the Palestinians as well as a ferry trundling down the coast from Turkey carrying 600 people.  The Israelis don’t deserve this crap.  It is a clash of civilizations- Israel representing civilization and the Palestinians representing barbarism.
  62. 2011 Friday: Prime Minister David Cameron confirms that the United Kingdom is sending Apache attack helicopters to help the Libyan rebels in their attempt to overthrow Dictator Moammar Gaddafi.  Meanwhile- California Burning: a massive wildfire in the surrounding hills above Lake Isabella, Kern County, forces residents to flee via the three available avenues out of the area.  The California drought has depleted the massive reservoir.
  63. 2012 Sunday: Following some controversial remarks, Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, suffers accusations of “insulting the Greek people.”   Elsewhere, Vladimir Putin’s hired thugs disguised as ‘protesters’ take to the streets in Tbilisi, Georgia, demanding the ouster of the duly-elected government of Mikhail Saakashvili.    
  64. 2013 Monday: Scientists in Canada bring 400-year-old bryophyte specimens left behind by retreating glaciers during the Ice Age back to life.  Elsewhere, the European Union decided to lift an arms embargo on the Syrian opposition while maintaining all other sanctions against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator John McCain, R-Arizona, a proponent of arming Syrian rebels (without knowing who the f**k they are), quietly slipped into Syria for a meeting with anti-government forces.       
  65. 2014 Tuesday: President Barack Obama plans to keep 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan through the end of 2015 and then reduce this number over the following two years to a small force; the troops will train Afghan forces and conduct counterterrorism operations.  However, while giving a press conference at Baghram Air Base in Afghanistan, the White House, i.e., President Obama, ‘accidentally leaks’ the name of the top CIA intelligence officer in that country and even worse, he does it before 6,000 assembled journalists.  WTF, President O?  When ‘Scooter’ Libby ‘accidentally’ spilled the name of Valerie Plame, he went to federal prison.
  66. 2015 Wednesday: According to Brainy History, the federal government approves commercial space company SpaceX as a contractor to the U.S. military for satellite launches; SpaceX will compete for contracts against the Boeing-Lockheed Martin United Launch Alliance, currently the primary military launch provider.  Elsewhere, former Senator Rick Santorum, RINO-PA, announces he will be running for 2016 presidential nomination of the Republican Party.  Uh, okay. 
  67. 2016 Friday: Longtime bassist with the soul-funk-rock band, The Ohio Players[iii]—Marshall “Rock” Jones—died on this date in Houston, Texas; he was 75 years-old.  Elsewhere, Iranian morality police scoop up at least 30 college students who had the chutzpah to attend a co-ed graduation party.  The penalty for their crimes?  Ninety-nine lashes.  Wow.  Can’t have the sexes mingling now, can we?  Barbarism folks, plain, simple barbarism.
  68. 2017 Saturday: Gregg Allman, famed lead singer of the Macon, Ga., rock band, the Allman Brothers[iv], died at his home in Richmond Hill, Georgia, on this date due to the ill effects of liver disease.  Elsewhere, at Taormina, Italy, the 43rd G7 summit sputters to an end as every leader save for President Donald J. Trump votes to uphold the NON-BINDING Paris Climate Accord.  Of course, the BBC and American liberals began wailing about ‘climate change denial’ when in truth, there is NO evidence that it exists or does not exist.  The planet is in a constant state of flux and anyone who says otherwise simply does not accept the PROVEN science.  Climate change for former committed communists is the easiest way to force totalitarianism upon an unsuspecting population.
  69. 2018 Sunday: Problems continue erupting across Brazil as workers at the state-owned petroleum company- Petrobras- join the ongoing teamsters strike.  Elsewhere, the Israelis announce they will be building a ‘unique deterrent’ to Palestinians boarding ships and sneaking into Israel by sailing around land barriers and landing on their beaches.  The new obstacles will be three stories high and will be constructed of stone and defensive fencing which will prevent jihadists crossing from Gaza getting into Israel and causing problems.  Destroy the vermin.   (Note- the U.S. requires something like this on the Mexican border by San Diego, California).
  70. 2019 Monday: A new global study that investigated 711 rivers around the world finds that many of them are polluted with antibiotics and other medicines either flushed down the toilet or tossed into them for disposal.  Elsewhere, Reuters reports a horrifying story that in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, prison officials in several different jails discovered the corpses of at least 42 inmates strangled to death.  This followed on the heels of yesterday’s deaths of 15 gangbanging thugs in the state capital’s prison.  The violence appears to be spreading like a cancer.
  71. 2020 Wednesday: Sadly, America’s first attempt in nine years at putting astronauts back into space is scrubbed due to electrical storms raging in parts of Florida.  Saturday is the next date.  Astronauts Bob Bacon and Doug Hurley were aboard the Falcon 9 rocket provided by Space X.  Waiting aboard the Dragon Crew Capsule for their 19-hour trip to the International Space Station for over an hour, the duo learned the flight was postponed due to safety reasons.  We will be there Saturday.
  72. 2020 Wednesday A: The Chinese-created COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Virus continues causing problems and some scientists now say the virus is engineered ‘perfectly’ in that it can morph into variations that a normal virus could not.  Thank you, communist China, but the AICPENDBLOG.COM believed from the beginning that the Wuhan Flu’s appearance was too ‘coincidental’ to show up shortly after the communist Chinese lower-level signatories to the U.S.-China Trade Deal.  That is not right.  Here are the statistics for today for the world: 5,651,806 confirmed cases, 353,246 confirmed deaths, and 2,325,989 confirmed recoveries. 
  73. 2020 Wednesday B: In the United States, we have 1,730,136 confirmed cases, 101,356 confirmed deaths, and 369,460 confirmed recoveries.  It is important to note that recoveries would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics with the disease.  To us, this demonstrates evidence of the COLLUSION between communist China and the Democratic Party, something that must be investigated if the American people are ever to learn the truth.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the statistics, California first: 98,980 confirmed cases, 3,884 confirmed deaths, BUT ZERO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which confirms for us that Governor Gavin Newsom is doing nothing but playing politics.  In Hawaii, here are the numbers: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the socialist non-paradise of Washington state, here are the stats: 20,181 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  (It is interesting to note that Chef Vladimir says that prior to mail-in ballots in the state became the norm, the state was a reliable RED in every election as it will be again when people return to voting in the normal way).
  74. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 169,616,816 confirmed cases, +537,668, 3,524,509 confirmed deaths, +11,643 and 151,459,161 confirmed recoveries, +65,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,999,680 confirmed cases, UP 24,393 from yesterday’s reporting, 607,726 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[v] and 27,701,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,832.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]  
  75. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 289,779 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 169,830 deaths  
  76. 2021 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: 3,786,604 confirmed cases, 63,161 confirmed deaths, and 2,024,029 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,318,480 confirmed cases, 36,733 confirmed deaths, and 1,939,437 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,032 confirmed cases, 498 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 436,124 confirmed cases, 5,814 confirmed deaths, and 212,224 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Michigan: they have 990,638 confirmed cases, 20,301 confirmed deaths, and 791,206 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  77. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,420 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,599 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Finland, a former ally of Nazi Germany during World War II: 92,062 cases of the virus, 946 confirmed deaths and 46,000 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  78. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,464.64, UP 141.59 points (+0.41%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,736.28, DOWN 1.72 points (-0.013%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,200.88, UP 4.89 points (+0.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $67.13 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.30 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.86 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,180.60 per troy oz, +1.50 (+0.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.66 per pound, 0.00 (-0.05%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,808.10 per troy oz, +2.96 (+0.11%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $22,750.00 per troy oz., -50.00 (-0.22%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.     In Botswana Pula, one greenback equals 10.58 and in Brazilian Real, a buck equals 5.24 and in Brunei Dollar, one dollar equals 1.32 of theirs.[xii]   In other business news, Bayer’s stocks take a tumble as a federal judge refuses to toss the ongoing lawsuit against Roundup which is under their umbrella of products.   
  79. 2021 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 by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.175 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.927 in Hawaii, and $3.565 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Alaska: $3.320.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Belarus: $2.928 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,337,169,021,764 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  Regarding gasoline prices, economists believe that higher gas prices won’t affect travel on Memorial Day.
  80. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the so-called ‘border czar’ now for 66 days and NO one has seen her anywhere near the U.S.-Mexican border.  Speaking of the border disaster, One America News shared some updated statistics on just how dreadful things are at the border.  The costs of caring for the massive number of illegal aliens to the American people today is $584,855,552.  Next, the total cost of caring for these frigging illegal aliens for calendar year 2021 is $160,584,892,416.  The number of known illegals to have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border this year is 1,645,866 while the total number of illegals lurking within the shadows of the United States is 35,645,864.   (Note- we have long said the total number of illegals in the U.S. is between 35-50 million.  It would appear that One America News is backing us up on this number).  
  81. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The New York Times is praising Democrats’ silence on the disastrous mess along the southern border.  Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers were denied access to a DEA facility near El Paso, Texas, by the goons doing the bidding of the Biden regime.  Elsewhere, Rep. Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says, ‘states are playing shell games with illegal alien payments given them by the feds.’   Next, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says the border problem is not helped by ‘Facebook running ads for Mexican cartels.’
  82. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– News reports claim a Russian naval intelligence ship is sailing in the waters just off the coast of Hawaii.  Nothing to see here, folks.  (Yeah, right).  Next, in Iran, the third time in a week a chemical plant housing a nuclear reactor blew up killing one person outright and wounding another two.  Who would do such a dastardly thing, or did it happen because the Iranians are morons?  We await the final word on this event.   Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘external forces are seeking to damage the U.S.-Colombia relationship.’  (Note- most likely those forces are next door in Venezuela).  Moving on, Hong Kong might throw away loads of Chi-Vi vaccines citing citizens’ mistrust in both the former British crown colony’s and mainland China’s governments as well as the ongoing swirling misinformation about both the vaccines and the disease.[xvi]  Finally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad won a historic fourth term as dictator, uh, president, in a landslide election.  Wow.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Speaking of COVID, Dr. Marty Makary says that ‘half of non-vaccinated Americans are immune to COVID-19’ and that ‘health officials relied more on government mandates than on the science.’  Meanwhile, while Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci continues obfuscating, sputtering, and stammering about his friends, the Chi-Coms’ responsibility in infecting the entire world, Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says, ‘it’s laughable’ for Dr. Fauci to ‘plead ignorance’ over what his pals at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were up to in the lab.  Elsewhere, we learn from a recent study that people who have had mild COVID-19 infections can gain lifelong immunity.  (Note- speaking of ‘Phony Tony,’ he says the vaccine will be available for young kids by the end of 2021; we ain’t giving it to our kids when 99.98-percent of young kids survive the crap).
  84. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  In a Newark, New Jersey, federal courtroom, 26-year-old letter carrier Nicolas Beauchene pleaded guilty to one count of ‘desertion of mail.’  The punk admitted to destroying 99 2020 Election ballots as well as another 2,000 pieces of mail.  And bit by bit by bit, the dominoes continue falling.  We will see a change in the outcome of the 2020 Elections.  Count on it.  (Note- in other curious news regarding the U.S. Postal Service, we continue hearing more and more that the USPS is spying on the social media of the American people under order from the Joe Biden regime.  WTF?)
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been leading infrastructure talks with Congress and not flipping ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Yet another sign the senile old fool is not calling the shots.   Next, former 71st U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence “Larry” Summers, Democrat, says that Joe Biden’s stimulus plan will lead to rising inflation, inflation current Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, seems to be encouraging via increased government spending.  In other regime news, Joe Biden lifts ALL sanctions on the Russkies so they can now proceed with the construction of the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea to Germany- and they called Donald J. Trump a ‘Russian stooge!’  Joe Biden is a stooge of the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and even the rat-eating Iranians.  This scumbag must be evicted from office NOW.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II– Speaking of being a stooge of the Chi-Coms, Joe Biden is pushing a flipping $6 trillion federal budget for the next fiscal year.  All this money will come from the Chi-Coms.  Next, according to sources, the Biden regime is denying help to U.S. diplomats dealing with the so-called ‘Havana syndrome,’ the one in which microwaves of unknown origin are harming our overseas diplomats which is indeed an act of war upon the United States.  Meanwhile, the regime has not even looked at page 1 of the GOP $928 billion infrastructure offer, one Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says the GOP is willing to increase.  Finally, the regime dismisses the GOP’s plan for distribution of COVID-19 relief funds.  What’s up with the Biden regime.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden Regime News III– The lying POS Joe Biden has trotted up to Capitol Hill to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives- the ATF- David Chipman is being blasted by Republicans over his whacked-out stance on guns, gun control, and his whacked out ideas of arresting legal owners of AR-15 rifles while saying nothing about Hunter Biden[xvii] lying on his FBI background check and whether he would issue an arrest warrant for the scumbag should be become the next ATF director.  In other news favorable to the regime, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, introduces a bill to treble the budget of the Internal Revenue Service.   Music to the Bidenistas’ ears.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Well-known conservative commentator Todd Starnes shared a story about Hillsdale High School valedictorian Elizabeth Turner who was told by principal Amy Goldsmith she could not mention or reference to God Who is extremely important in her life.  After lawyers entered the fray, the courts overruled the principal, and her speech can continue as written at the graduation ceremonies.   Next, Facebook says it will NO longer censor posts pointing the finger at the Chi-Coms for making this pandemic in the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s laboratory.
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Political News I– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, is on the way out because the state’s largest labor union- the SEIU- has abandoned him to his fate and is calling for him to go.  NOW.  Next, after repeated death threats against Mike Lindell of My Pillow, a court rules that the manufacturer’s address can be kept secret while the Dominion Voting Systems’ fraudulent lawsuit against him continues.  They are claiming their product is as clean as the wind-driven snow.  (Note- everyone knows that Dominion is a corrupt, evil company that sells election outcomes to the highest bidder.  IF their home country of Canada won’t use their products, what does that say about the honesty of the company or its products?  Answer: NOT MUCH).
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Political News II– Today, we learned three Democratic members of Congress- Steve “Bucket O’ Fried Chicken” Cohen, DS-TN 9th congressional district, Barbara “Blacktivist” Lee, DS-CA 13th congressional district, and Bobby “Black Panther” Rush, DS-IL 1st congressional district, hosted a tete a tete in which former Black Panther convicted murderers were featured guests.  This event occurred on May 10, 2021.  Next, Los Angeles Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti is going to be the next U.S. ambassador to India which is good because he would never win re-election.  Speaking of ambassadorships, failed Senator Claire McCaskill, DS-MO, who lost in a landslide to now-Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a couple of election cycles ago also stands in line for an ambassadorship somewhere in Europe.  Hmmm, maybe Albania?  Finally, California continues hemorrhaging population as people continue fleeing for better environs.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News III– Lily Batchelder- Joe Biden’s nominee to be Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy under Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen so far is flying under the radar in her confirmation hearings- so says Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax TV.  She believes that Americans must be taxed on FUTURE INCOME and that taxation should vary via (1) race (2) gender (3) education (4) age (5) education and IQ (6) zip code and (7) behavioral profile.  This woman should NOT be confirmed.  Period.  In other political news, President Donald J. Trump says he plans to run a third time in 2024- provided he remains in good health.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he and personal attorney- and ‘America’s Mayor’- Rudy Giuliani have asked a judge to toss the Capitol Hill Riots 01-06-2021 lawsuit dimwitted Democrats launched against them.  We concur.  Toss it.   The 45th president also said of his administration compared to the Biden regime, the ‘U.S. was energy independent whereas now- it’s not- thanks to Biden’s policies.’  Finally, famed Democratic strategist James Carville said of his own party that there’s too much ‘arrogance’ and ‘urban smugness’ running the show.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Political News IV– Former Obama era employee Christine Wormuth received unanimous confirmation in the U.S. Senate to become the first female U.S. Secretary of the Army.  Congratulations.  Elsewhere, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, offered an amendment to a bill being debated that would forbid ‘gain of function’ experiments by medical scientists seeking to amplify the effects of already-dangerous viruses.  He received unanimous consent for his amendment.  Excellent.
  93. 2021 Thursday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Protesters going against a Washington abortion clinic have been granted more access in which to protest the Pro-Death Movement by a judge.  Meanwhile, down in Texas, the Lone Star State’s Senate has passed a so-called ‘trigger bill’ that will kick in IF Roe v. Wade is overturned.  Should it kick in, it will criminalize all abortion providers with lengthy prison sentences for the murder and dismemberment of the unborn.  Excellent.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: Miscellaneous News I– Clay Travis and Buck Sexton will be taking over Rush Limbaugh’s time slot.   Next, the Oscars will once again allow films on streaming services to compete for honors.  Meanwhile, the International Olympic Committee disputes a recent report that says that ‘even if Japan refuses to host the Olympics due to the Chi-Vi, the Olympics will STILL go on.’  Who will hold them?  Oildale, California?  Finally, last evening three Texas cops were shot during a 10-hour SWAT standoff.  The officers will recover, and the POS shooter is in custody.  
  95. 2022 Friday: Stick around and discover the news of the day along with all of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys is an interesting albeit an odd one.  “Stack-o-Tracks” came out on August 19, 1968 and did something NO other band of which we know and revere at the time as it was ALL INSTRUMENTAL and came with the music sheets and lyrics among other things.  Thus, we have all the BACKING TRACKS to 15 of their earlier and biggest tunes all in one place.  If you can find this oddity, seek it out as it would make for a glorious Karaoke night at the neighborhood watering hole.  Great stuff by a much-beloved band.  Seek it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Trump stood in his way and look at what happened to the 45th president.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we also learn today that Hunter Biden still maintains a stake in a Chi-Com equity firm.   Also, regarding the Chi-Coms, the United Kingdom announces it’s going to step up the fight against Chi-Com intelligence-gathering operations around the world.  In other news regarding the communist Chinese, as if we don’t have issues with the thugs in Beijing already, it appears that the out-of-control rocket they launched into the atmosphere as part of their space program could come down somewhere in the United States.  That’s the Chi-Coms for you.  Finally, in other foreign/overseas news, Hillary Rodham Clinton says that the ‘Afghan troop pullout will bolster the Taliban and other terrorists.’
  77. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The Biden regime plans on reuniting illegal alien families that have been separated while in custody.  Awesome, Joe, simply awesome.  We say, ‘reunite them in their home countries.’  Meanwhile, people are blasting “Kooky Kamala” Harris over her being given new responsibilities but still cannot find time to visit the U.S.-Mexico border.  WTF?

Trump to 62,500.  WTF!  Speaking of the 45th president, he says that the ‘2020 Presidential Election will forever be remembered as the “BIG LIE,” which it most definitely was.
  79. 2021 Monday I: Political News I– A POS Democrat in Lamar County, Texas, Gary O’Connor- chair of the county’s Democratic Party- is facing a barrage of calls demanding his resignation after he referred to Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, as an “Oreo.”  This is a vile form of slander but when it comes from Democrats, seldom do they get in trouble.  This punk needs to go NOW.   Speaking of the Lone Star State, many see the GOP wins as signs of what awaits the Republican Party in 2022.   Speaking of the BIG Texas wins, President Donald J. Trump says that the Dems, NOT the RINOs, are giving him credit for what happened in Texas.  Speaking of RINOs, GOP pundits expect that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out of the party’s leadership by the end of the month.
  80. 2021 Monday J: Political News II–  In Florida, some RINO Republicans are expressing fear over the new voting law designed to halt corruption and fraud.  They fear it could backfire on them, the terrified, trembling milquetoasts.  Oh, boohoo.  Stop sniveling, RINOs.  Next, people are outraged over the new WOKE CIA recruiting video.  Are we hiring the best or are we hiring pansies with weak minds?  How embarrassing.  Next, former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says the ‘voters are fed-up’ with Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov.  In other shocking news, we now learn that Climate Czar John F. Kerry was making BIG BUCKS from fossil fuel investments prior to becoming the ‘climate czar,’ at which time he offloaded them.  What a loser.
  81. 2021 Monday K: Political News III– The U.S. Supreme Court won’t take a Maryland case regarding bump stocks.   Speaking of SCOTUS, Justice Clarence Thomas backs a former West Point cadet’s right to sue the academy over an alleged rape.   Elsewhere, Minnesota state Attorney General Keith Ellison says he is in favor of trying BAD COPS at the International Criminal Court in the Hague.  Meanwhile, it would appear that John McCain’s widow Cindy, is on the side against the Arizona 2020 Presidential Election audit which puts her up against state GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward.  (Note- someone should suggest to Cindy she become a Democrat.  Enough is enough).
  82. 2021 Monday L: Miscellaneous News I– In Chicago over the past weekend, 7 people were shot dead while another 46 were wounded.  Nary a peep in protest to the ongoing mass shootings in the Windy City.   Speaking of guns, the FBI says gun sales are UP for the 16th straight month as people are rushing out to buy guns in advance of all the leftwing riotous thugs roaming the streets.  Good.  We sure the hell are buying guns.  Elsewhere, the judge deciding the NRA bankruptcy case will have a ruling sometime next week.
  83. 2021 Monday M: Miscellaneous News II– Racing champion Bobby Unser, an Indy 500 winner,   and a member of racing family elite, died at the age of 89.  Next, after 27 years of wedded bliss, Bill and Melinda Gates are throwing in the towel.   Elsewhere, the New Jersey Pine Mountain Golf Club has granted full access to women.  Wow.  Kind of late.  Moving on, an appeals court is going to decide a California law regarding trannys participating in scholastic sports.   Next, Intel is going to invest $3.5 billion in a chip-manufacturing plant in New Mexico.  Finally, scientists are breeding sea stars with which to repopulate and rebab the world’s warming oceans.  They are doing this in laboratories.  Uh, okay.
  84. 2022 Tuesday:  Let’s see what is occurring today.  Shall we?

2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS- Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos. The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.

  77. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos.  The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.  Most Americans are appalled enough already knowing that this fuddled old fool STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election but are even more so now that a majority of Americans realize we have a vegetable in the White House.  WTF is happening to our country.  Next, the White House says that Joe Biden is going to beef up gun control measures by scrawling his chicken scratch on more executive orders.  F**k you, Joe, NO one is taking our guns.
  78. 2021 Friday A: “RACIST! NEWS”/WHAT’S RACIST TODAY– Oakland, California Mayor and crackpot political hack Libby Schaaf backs an income supplement program that will help disadvantaged black folks but won’t help equally disadvantaged white folks living in that corrupt East Bay city.  Wow.  Next, a Minnesota-based dinner theater scraps a presentation of “Cinderella” because the cast was ‘too white.’   Meanwhile, black leaders zero in on Democrat holdouts in the U.S. Senate who do not want to toss the filibuster onto the heap.  Thus, they are going to accuse them of being racists 24/7/365 with the Reverend Al Sharpton at the head of the pack of accusers.[xi]  What a bunch of crap.   Elsewhere, the top editor at the Journal of the American Medical Association, aka JAMA- Howard Bauchner- found himself sidelined over a tweet and podcast he made in which he said: “No physician is racist, so how can there be structural racism in health care?”  Not good, Dr. B., black doctors became angry and out you go.  Get with it man!
  79. 2021 Friday B: LIBERAL STUPIDITY– Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon- a George Soros appointee- is not going to try 20-year-old murderous thug Jalen Yoakum as an adult.  This means the POS will be back on the streets in five years.  When is L.A. County going to remove this worthless scumbag?  Meanwhile, the state of Oregon is going to go after concealed carry permits via a new direction by creating a patchwork of gun-free zones all over the place making it difficult for gun owners to carry their lawfully-owned firearms and avoid felonies.  Thugs, of course, will still be packing.  No wonder eastern Oregon wants to break off from the lunatics in the western portion.   Elsewhere, Dems in the Peach State are going berserk over Governor Brian Kemp signing the new voting rights bill.  Massachusetts phony Native American Senator Lizzie “Borden” Warren tweeted that ‘the man sitting in Stacey Abrams chair (good one, Lizzie, good one) is taking the state back to JIM CROW!”[xii]  In fact, a state black lawmaker, Park Cannon, was arrested for banging on the governor’s door after the cops told her to stop knocking.  Stupid skank.[xiii]   Finally, the White House says, ‘Joe Biden’ is worried about the Georgia voting rights law.[xiv]
  80. 2021 Friday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden owes border officials a big apology for creating the massive tsunami surge of illegal aliens flooding across our border.’  Meanwhile, as GOP lawmakers visit the overwhelmed southern border, Senator Mike Lee, R-OR, said that across the Rio Grande River, smugglers, gangbangers, and cartel trash were taunting them.[xv]  Elsewhere, the GOP is demanding that the news media be allowed to film along the southern border so the nation can see what the heck is going on down there with illegal aliens as thick as cockroaches in a Tijuana backstreet whore house rushing across it.  Time to do some pest control, folks.  Finally, it would appear that every sitting GOP U.S. senator is down at the border today blasting the inept Joe Biden administration.
  81. 2021 Friday D: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– thanks to Joe Biden’s incredibly stupid policies on energy production and usage, the U.S. is back to importing oil, much of which is Russian oil, and our guy has the nerve to call Putin a “Killer.”  WTF?   Meanwhile, former Ohio treasurer and candidate for Senator Rob Portman’s seat when he steps down at the end of his term said that ‘Joe Biden isn’t all there.’  Go figure.  Next, Joe Biden may invite Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping to a virtual climate summit.  Wow.  Amazing, Joe, simply amazing. 
  82. 2021 Friday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– USC reaches a settlement of $852 million following it acknowledging that a former campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall- charged with five counts of sexual abuse- abused hundreds of female students while employed at the University of Southern California.  The crimes allegedly occurred between 2011 and 2015.  Wow.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and rapper Killer Mike are meeting with folks in Bessemer, Alabama, the site of a big battle to unionize.  Liberal icon Amazon is doing battle with its workers seeking to unionize the plant to seek better wages and even better treatment.  Amazon will probably move the plant to Puerto Rico.  Be careful.
  83. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, signs a bill ending trannys from participating in girls and women’s sports.  Excellent.  As we have repeatedly said, IF trannys are so determined to compete in sports, it’s far easier to create a third category of sports as well as separate locker rooms.  Let them have at it and we suspect that tranny sports would have far more fans than either girls/women’s or boys/men’s sports.  It’s like roller derby, everyone loves watching the women more so than men so how about creating a third category of competitive sports, you know, for the mentally ill- oh, wait, did we just say that?  Sorry.  Elsewhere, Dominion Voting Systems, the ALLEGEDLY CORRUPT ORGANIZATION THAT STEALS ELECTIONS FOR THE HIGHEST BIDDER- is slapping Fox News Channel with a $1.6 billion lawsuit alleging FNC slandered their fine, fine company.  Sounds like deflection to us or at least so says our attorneys.
  84. 2021 Friday G: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Since Kim Jong Un and North Korea have become belligerent again what with Joe Biden talking s**t about them, elements of the 1st Armored Division are deploying to South Korea.  Next, the People’s Republic of China, aka the Chi-Coms, have slapped reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for having slapped human rights sanctions on them.  Elsewhere, the container ship beached in the Suez Canal threatens to be there for several months blocking passage through the incredibly important waterway.  This, of course, will lead to higher energy prices as well as drive up the cost of goods around the world.  Glenn Beck raised the specter as to whether someone hacked into the controls of the ship and caused it to run aground.  We thought this was possible after two U.S. Navy ships collided with commercial freighters back in 2017.  Two guided-missile destroyers, the USS Fitzgerald and the USS John S. McCain ran into other ships back in June and August of that year for which there was no real explanation.  Could it be the Chi-Coms, the Russians, or some other nefarious unseen actor is able to cause such mishaps?  Sure, seems possible to us…
  85. 2021 Friday H: MEDICAL NEWS– Former Centers for Disease Control- the CDC- Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘COVID-19 bat flu virus did indeed escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.’  The question is, was it a purposeful release?  Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Atlas said to Glenn Beck today that ‘science and expertise have become compromised, politicized, and that the demand for social distancing of six-feet or more (or less) is based on pseudo-science.’  God bless you.  Next, the U.S. pulls over 95-percent of its stockpiled PPE gowns over safety issues.  Must be the crap manufactured in communist China.  Moving on, the cities of Boston, Newark, and Norfolk will become mega-vaccination sites on the East Coast.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates says ‘life will probably be back to normal by 2022.’  Bill- STFU.  Finally, the European Union is peeved with its vaccine suppliers as the demand far outpaces the production.  Are you dummies using the Russian Sputnik vaccine?  Serves you right, dimwits.
  86. 2021 Friday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– President Donald J. Trump said today that during the Antifa/Black Lives Matter FALSE FLAG OPERATION launched against Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021, lawmakers were in ‘ZERO DANGER.’  We concur, it was set up from the start.   Speaking of President Trump, he will also remain neutral in the Alabama race for the U.S. Senate seat, and, according to Jason Miller, President Trump may visit the southern border soon.  Next, Congressman Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi thinks she can remove anyone from office.’  Elsewhere, New York’s junior Senator Kirsten “Whitey” Gillibrand defends her call for Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to resign as being her personal opinion.  (The Lov Gov must have called her up and threatened her).  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi has authorized several House committees to conduct intensive investigations into rooting out the scurrilous scumbags behind the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, riots the Democrats set in motion.  She is angry NO Republicans will join her in yet another witch hunt.
  87. 2021 Friday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– U.S. Cybercommand says that recent hacks by foreign actors are a ‘clarion call’ to arms.  You go.  Meanwhile, Parler says it informed the FBI of numerous threats made on its site prior to the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is calling for an end to the lockdown on the cruise ship industry.  Cruise ships must get back to work.  NOW.  Next, “Lonesome Dove” (and other books) author Larry McMurtry is dead at the age of 84.  God bless you, Larry!  Moving on, the Michigan GOP plans to bypass a weakened Governor Gretchen “Bride of Frankenstein” Whitmer, Democratic-Socialist, and fix the voting laws in their state.  Finally, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says ‘Congress holding BIG TECH accountable is going to be a challenge.’
  88. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 124,683,860 confirmed cases, +579,564, 2,742,357  confirmed deaths, +9,863, and 70,731,503 confirmed recoveries, +338,716 (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS!).  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,223,587 confirmed cases, up 61,840 from yesterday’s reporting, 550,726 confirmed deaths, UP 1,315, (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS!) and 117,827,913 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. 
  89. 2021 Friday L: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  90. : 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: 3,648,021 confirmed cases (same as yesterday’s count), 57,909 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the third highest state after California- Florida: currently, they have 2,016,505 confirmed cases, 32,819 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- Hungary, former Axis ally: 586,123 cases of the virus, 18,703 confirmed deaths and 378,176 confirmed recoveries.[xvi]  
  91. 2021 Friday N: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,072.88, UP 453.40 points (+1.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,138.73, UP 161.04 points (+1.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,974.54, UP 65.02 points (+1.66%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.72 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,731.60 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.11 per troy ounce, 0.00 (-0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,191.10 per troy oz, +13.20 (+1.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.08 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,677.50 per troy oz, +52.00 (+1.98%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -900.00 (-3.09%).[xix]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.58.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Belize dollars, one greenback equals 2.00.[xx]  
  92. 2021 Friday O: 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 $3.889 per gallon, $3.635 in Hawaii, and $3.323 in Washington state.[xxi]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,097,328,683,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  93. 2021 Friday P: NASA/SCIENCE NEWS– NASA reports that the humongous asteroid named Apophis originally thought to maybe impact the Earth sometime in 2068 now won’t come near enough to the Earth to wreak havoc on the planet for at least another century.  This bad boy from the cosmos is the size of the Empire State Building and is slated to pass within 20,000 miles of the Earth on Friday, April 13, 2029.  Astronomers point out that the moon is 238,000 miles away from our planet so this substantial chunk of rock is going to pass by us at an extremely close distance which astronomers are all excited about as it will provide them ample opportunity to get some good photos of it.  Let’s hope another chunk of space debris doesn’t slam into it, deflect it, and send it crashing down on our planet (unless it decides to hit communist China, Russia, or Iran first before creating a massive extinction event the likes of which ended the reign of the dinosaurs).   Italian astronomer Claudio Maccone says the best protection against space-based threats such as asteroids is space-based missiles with which to blow them up when they are a good distance from the planet rather than immediately threatening it.
  94. 2021 Friday Q: LATE NEWS I– Beloved children’s author Beverly Cleary died at the age of 104 today.  Meanwhile, rabid, foaming at the mouth liberals are suing Georgia’s elections officials over the new voting laws someone in the White House calls the ‘new Jim Crow of the 21st century.’  Yikes.  That hurts.  Elsewhere, the FREE nation of Taiwan, aka the Republic of China or Nationalist China, reported today that 20 Chi-Com warplanes penetrated its airspace today which led to rapid scrambling of attack planes and targeted missiles which drove the communist invaders back out to sea.  Light ‘em up, Taiwan, light those SOBs up!   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, them and the Russians are drawing closer together in an effort to intimidate the United States.  What else is new?   Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger warns that the constant ‘U.S.-China contest risks catastrophic conflict.’ 
  95. 2021 Friday R: LOTTERY NEWS– Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1645 with a jackpot of $137 million on the line.  Get your tickets purchased by 7:45 P.M. tonight.  Here are the results: 04, 25, 37, 46, 67, and Mega 15.  Out of 69,400 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,502.
  96. 2022 Saturday: Thank God, it’s Saturday.  We hope things remain peaceful…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Robbie Robertson’s next solo album came out on March 10, 1998, and is somewhat unique among his growing discography of music.  The famed guitarist of the Band jumped into a celebrated effort in which, he tried to bring the music of the First Peoples of Canada, aka aboriginals, to a wider audience, sort of what Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones did when he presented his ground-breaking effort, “Pipes of Pan at Joujouka,” an album that came out in 1971.  In that effort, Jones presented the whirling music of North African flute players and drummers whereas here, Robertson brings together large numbers of musicians to play his visionary intermingling of native rhythms with modern musical forms.  We hope you will seek this one out, consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure, and then sharing it with others.  We think they will be as appreciative of it as will you.  Enjoy.

[i] We look forward to doing our favorite classical composers one day.  Hopefully within the next 30 years.

[ii] See “The Soviet Juggernaut” by Earl F. Ziemke and the Editors of Time-Life Books (1980).

[iii] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

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

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Boston but when we do, we will alert the readership.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

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

[ix] 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.

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

[xi] The Reverend Al never misses out on an opportunity to label people RACISTS.

[xii] She should KNOW about Jim Crow.  Democrats were- and still are, for that matter- the party of Jim Crow as well as the party of separate but equal, the KKK, slavery, race hatred, segregation, red-lining, white flight, burning crosses, police dogs, fire hoses, beatings, plantation prisons, and the Civil War.  Dems love braying about “JIM CROW, JIM CROW” as it is the new watchword of the day, everything anyone opposing them does is taking us back to “Jim Crow.”  Lizzie- STFU you lying, phony, hypocritical, crazy f**king bitch!  Enough is enough!

[xiii] This moronic little chub probably thinks, “Boy, I sure showed them!”  We’re sure she believes Governor Kemp is also a racist bigot.  Enough already.

[xiv] Why?  Can’t Joe just undo everything with yet another executive order and can’t the Democrats coerce RINO Governor Brian Kemp into signing another consent decree in 2022 that will permit overweight Stacey Abrams to steal the elections as she did in 2020?  What the hell is the big deal?

[xv] This is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups from Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama as well as laying in minefields, antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat impediments, putting down spikes on our side of the river IN the river at the border line, putting in military emplacements, troops, razor wire augmenting the wall, and completing the wall.  Hell, put in foo gas pits and whatever else we need to stop the invasion.  BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL!

78. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 2022

2009 Thursday: North Korea is up to its old tricks once again- they arrest two American journalists with Current TV- near the border with communist China. Many believe the North Koreans went across the Yalu River and grabbed them up. The North Koreans like kidnapping foreigners and holding them for ransom. Ask the Japanese.

Ford only fell down the stairs of Air Force One ONCE.   No wonder Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to debate Joe Biden publicly.[iv]   Next, while Democrats may promote the benefits of marijuana for everyone (so they can tax the hell out of it), apparently the Joe Biden White House does not approve of its use among staffers.  An unnamed number of staffers have been terminated for past usage as well as present usage.  Watch that CBD oil, folks.

  75. 2021 Friday B: FOREIGN POLICY/OVERSEAS NEWS- the American people are shocked at how the representatives of the People’s Republic of China disrespected representatives of the Biden administration, most notably, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.[v]  The communists Chinese told the Biden administration they ‘have no room to lecture them about human rights abuses when black lives seemingly DON’T matter in the United States.’  Of course, like former U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry allowed the Iranians to abuse him in public on innumerable occasions, so, too, did the Chi-Coms abuse Secretary Blinken.  The Chi-Coms told Blinken, Sullivan, and others in attendance that the ‘United States is NOT approaching the talks from a position of power.’  Our power is evaporating now that Donald Trump is no longer President Trump.[vi] 
  76. 2021 Friday C: In other Chi-Com related news, the U.S. House of Representatives manages to squash an effort by the Republican minority to have Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell removed from the House Intelligence Committee seeking as how he had a lengthy sexual affair with Ministry of State Security secret agent Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, which only recently ended.[vii]  In other foreign news, the U.S. House blasts the military junta in Myanmar demanding they free their detainees.

  78. 2021 Friday E: U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE AND SENATE NEWS- At least 73 House Democrats have signed a petition demanding House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi expel Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, from Congress.  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi is still trying to STEAL the certified election from Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district.[ix]  Why aren’t more Republicans standing up to the old bag and telling her to stop this sort of behavior?  Enough is enough!  Elsewhere, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that ‘the Equality Act does nothing for equality for women.’  Next, never-to-be-outdone, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, D-MA, says that ‘the filibuster is a relic from the Jim Crow era.’[x]  Moving on, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY 14th congressional district, says that ‘challenging “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer would be a lot to put on one person.’  Finally, Senate Democrats say that IF they fail to push through ‘filibuster reform,’ they will be facing ARMAGEDDON in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.’
  79. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- a father in British Columbia underwent arrest for defying a court order.  What was the court order, you ask?  He was speaking about his daughter’s transition from being a girl to being a freak, uh,  we mean ‘boy.’  Excuse us for living.  The father had no clue what was going on and that his wife was aiding the mixed-up kid to become a person of the opposite gender.  The Canadian courts ordered him not to publicly comment on the matter but as a concerned parent, he felt he had no choice other than to express his feelings publicly since the government did not seem to give a dump.  Welcome to the modern world.   In other news, a wax museum in San Antonio, Texas, had to remove a wax effigy of President Donald J. Trump because dimwitted leftists were walking up and punching it in the face.  Put those scumbags in prison.   Speaking of the former president, a man was arrested by the Secret Service for threatening the 45th president as well as other government officials.  
  80. 2021 Friday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- Following Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the person formerly-known-as-Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, Britney Spears is considering doing a similar interview.  Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth says she is ‘not mad at Harry and Meghan, just saddened by their interview’ as are we.  Talk about a pair of ingrates.  Wow.  Never seen anything like it.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden addresses the matter of ‘his dog’ Major’s biting incident of a White House staffer but we learned nothing new about the matter.  Go figure.   Next, the judge in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd agrees that some evidence from Floyd’s 2019 arrest can be heard in the present trial.  Finally, automaker Ford Motor Co. is building ‘computerless trucks’ sans chips due to a shortage of microchips.

  82. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 NEWS- Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, tore the AMAZING Dr. Anthony Fauci to shreds during their meeting yesterday in the U.S. Senate.  The junior senator from Kentucky slammed the guy for politicizing the virus by saying ‘fully vaccinated people do not have to wear masks so why, Dr. Fauci, are you out there prancing around saying we should continue wearing not one mask but at least two for the next TWO flipping years?’  The AMAZING Dr. Fauci tried to give as good as he was getting but the little wimp was getting pummeled.  The only thing that saved this phony was the senator’s time ran out and it was time to move to another lawmaker.   Next, a COVID-19 scientist involved in the vaccines says the next step is working on a cure for cancer. Speaking of the old Chi-Vi, the Centers for Disease Control reduces the social distancing for reopening schools.  Rather than six feet, the distance is now three feet.  Anything to do with Dr. Fauci getting his clock cleaned?  You be the judge.  Finally, Joe Biden is promoting a COVID-19 Hate Crimes bill following the Massage Parlor Massacres in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 16.  Even though the perp says he did not go there to kill Asians, Democrats continue braying like the left-wing sheeple they are that it was an ANTI-ASIAN HATE CRIME.  We’ve already addressed that bogus POS in the past couple of days.

  87. 2021 Friday N: EVENING UPDATES- Foreign News- Houthi rebel drone strikes once again have caused problems for the Saudis as six drones flew in and hit the Aramco facility in Riyadh.  Although they didn’t cause much damage, they still caused enough by causing some fires.  However, oil production was not interrupted.   Next, after the European Medicines Agency evaluated the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, they decided that the benefits far outweigh the risks and thus countries across Europe are back to using it to protect their citizens. 
  88. 2021 Friday O: Ex-con Michael Cohen, former personal attorney for President Donald J. Trump met with New York City D.A. Cyrus Vance, Jr., for the eighth time today.  Vance is trying to engineer a charge with which, he can ‘get’ Donald Trump.  He wants to know if the 45th president exaggerated the value of his real estate investments so he could get much more favorable loans from his bankers.  Stay tuned for further details (although we think Vance is tapping a dry hole).  We shall see.  In other news, apparently the quarterback of the Houston Texans, Deshaun Watson, is being accused by numerous spa employees for behaving in a sexually lewd and aggressive manner, something he wholeheartedly denies.  Poor guy must be a Republican because seldom does anyone go after a Democrat for such matters unless, of course, they are unlikable scumbags such as Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, former Senator Al Sharpton, and former Congressman John Conyers.  Then, one is fair game.  Finally, the feds are charging some Proud Boys leaders for their roles in the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.
  89. 2021 Friday P: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1643 with a $105 million jackpot on the line tonight.  Here we go: 09, 14, 40, 59, 68, and Mega 08. In a very strange event, there were NO winners in California although across the country, there were 08. In a very strange event, there were NO winners in California although across the country, there were 549,204 winning tickets.  We will check back tomorrow to see if this holds true.   UPDATE on the Mega Millions- out of 75,180 winning tickets, there was but ONE winner- FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $48,322.
  90. 2022 Saturday:  Thank God, it’s the weekend…

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

[ii] 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.

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

[iv] So far, the Biden administration has not answered Vladimir Putin’s challenge.

[v] We suspect that this will be the final time in which, Chi-Com officials meet with Biden administration officials on U.S. soil; no, from here on out, all meetings will be held in communist China and every visiting American diplomat will be undergoing the now-infamous anal swabs.  Serves them right.

[vi] The Biden administration is in such dire straits that we expect to see the Chi-Coms finish the job in Hong Kong, that the gates of landing craft will soon be hitting the wet sand on Taiwan’s beaches, that the Russians will make additional moves to re-establish the old Soviet Union, that the Iranians will incorporate Iraq and intimidate the rest of the Middle East, and that Kim Jong Un will begin firing a barrage of ballistic missiles into South Korea.  Who is going to stop these bad actors?  Certainly not an enfeebled old Joe Biden and a politicized Pentagon.  We’re toast, folks.  I guess we will salute the new world order.

[vii] It only ended because her cover was blown, and she had to scurry back to the PRC.  We suspect this poor girl must shower every time she has the displeasure of thinking about Congressman Swalwell.  Poor thing.  It sucks to feel sorry for a Chi-Com intelligence agent more so than a fellow American, but Swalwell is an embarrassment to the entire country.

[viii] At least 3 million illegal aliens will be legalized immediately, and taxpayer dollars will be used to import millions more illegal aliens. 

[ix] Election results were counted at least 3 times and each time they were counted, Miller-Meeks beat Democratic Party challenger Rita Hart.  Rita Hart ran to Speaker Pelosi blubbering and crying ‘she was robbed’ so now “Mumbles” Pelosi is seeking to STEAL the election away from Miller-Meeks and give it to crybaby Hart.

[x] It’s no surprise she doesn’t know what she is talking about.  The filibuster exists to protect the rights of the minority and the Democrats have used it repeatedly to protect them when they are in the minority (which may never happen again, thanks to H.R. 1).

64. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 05, 2022

2021 Friday N: Diners enjoying an evening out in a restaurant in Mogadishu, Somalia, got the surprise of their lives when an explosives-laden vehicle crashed in through the front, detonated, killing at least 10, injuring another 30, with many more feared to be trapped in the rubble. The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes once again. We hope the diners had not yet paid their checks.

  61. 2016 Saturday: Results for Super Saturday primary election races are thus: candidates Donald J. Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz win two states each; Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders wins 2 while his challenger Hillary Clinton wins one.   Meanwhile, a U.S. airstrike north of Mogadishu, Somalia, kills 150 Al-Shabbab militants, all members of the so-called “religion of peace.”
  62. 2017 Sunday: In an event that would prove to be true later, President Donald J. Trump accuses former President Barack Hussein Obama of ‘wiretapping Trump Tower’ in New York.  The news media laughed, Obama chuckled, and then as evidence began to appear, it sure looks like the anti-Trump coup plotters which include scum like John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok and his sex pal Lisa Page, James Comey, and even Hillary Clinton and Samantha Power all had a hand in the plot[ix].  Shame on them.   Elsewhere, Israel lessens penalties for people smoking the pakalolo in public.
  63. 2018 Monday: For the first time since becoming ‘supreme leader,’ Kim Jong Un meets South Korean officials when he hosts a dinner for them in Pyongyang.  We hope medical professionals checked out the South Korean diplomats and politicians for possible parasites.   Elsewhere, communist China commences its ‘two sessions,’ the annual confab of elected government officials and the Chinese Communist Party.  One thing they announce is an increase of 8-percent to the national defense budget.
  64. 2019 Tuesday: BREAKING NEWS: a major medical study in Denmark involving 650,000 children determined that the MMR vaccine does NOT increase the risk of autism as many anti-vaccine folks claim it does.   Meanwhile, Forbes reports that Kylie Jenner is the youngest-ever billionaire at the ripe old age of 21.   Elsewhere, Scott Gottlieb, head of the Food and Drug Administration, announces that he will resign as of next month. 
  65. 2020 Thursday: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Democrat-Massachusetts, becomes the next Democrat candidate seeking the 2020 presidential nomination to heed the writing on the wall.  A very unlikable candidate, she throws in the towel in an angry appearance before her supporters and is unwilling to endorse either remaining candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT.  Oh, Tulsi Gabbard, outgoing congresswoman from Hawaii remains in the fight but who knew.  Chef Elmer Hootenstein of the AICPENDBLOG.COM predicts on this date that Mr. Biden will beat Bernie for the nomination and that he will choose either Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama to be his running mate.  Then, after the DNC Convention in Milwaukee in July, something will happen that will drive Biden from the race and either Hillary or Michelle will become the nominee.  YOU heard it here first!
  66. 2021 Friday: Today is DAY 45 of the collapsing Biden-Harris administration.  Of course, the Chi-Coms are backing the senile old coot, they’re the ones keeping him going.  We shall see what we shall see.  What we are seeing is an invasion at our southern border with no one in the Chi-Com Joe Biden willing to stop it.  Immigration authorities are considering sending busloads of illegal alien brats to a military base in Virginia.  Other illegal aliens are gathering outside ports of entry all mysteriously wearing t-shirts demanding ‘Joe Biden let us in.’  Our military should evacuate the Capitol and relocate to the border to dig antipersonnel and antivehicle ditches, lay in minefields, foo gas pits, and other positions to repel the invasion.  Predator drones should circle overhead lighting up illegal alien vehicles and watercraft plying the waters of the Rio Grande back and forth bringing in thousands of illegal aliens.  It is us or them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court rules in a 5-3 decision with Amy Coney Barrett abstaining that “Illegal aliens and NOT the federal government have the burden of proof when it comes to fighting deportation orders.”  The high court also bows to a Biden administration request not to hear Trump-era cases regarding stopping funding to sanctuary cities and states.   Who needs court packing when you have a chief justice like John Roberts? 
  67. 2021 Friday A: In Sweden, an Afghan migrant carries out a knife and axe attack on Swedish citizens sending 22 people to the hospital.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace.’  Meanwhile, Pope Francis is visiting Iraq today.  We pray for his safety as we do not believe the Iraqis possess the ability to thwart an ISIS assault on the pontiff and his retinue.  The Christian community in Iraq has long been endangered thanks to the invasion of that country launched by President George W. Bush, RINO-Texas, in 2003 and the birth of ISIS, the proliferation of al-Qaida, and subsequent Iranian hegemony throughout the area.   
  68. 2021 Friday B: New Yorkers continue distancing themselves from rapidly imploding Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the “Love Gov,” the man who groomed female employees such as Charlotte Benning, asking them all sorts of personal questions, putting hands on them, and other obnoxious, sexist, despicable things that grade schoolers know is impermissible.  He also is in deep trouble over his jiggering and re-jiggering of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes-hospitals-to nursing homes and back to hospitals with which, he tried to cover his tracks in eliminating senior citizens and other vulnerable populations.  He did what the Nazis were doing in the 1930s, eliminating what THEY called ‘useless eaters,’ people who required more resources from the state than what they contributed to the state.  You can bet in this era of trillion-dollar PORKULUS bills that more older people are going to have to be denied life-saving operations and therapies so resources can be redistributed to others such as ILLEGAL ALIENS.    Speaking of the national debt, it’s spiraling out of control in the era of Biden executive orders and sycophantic bills from Democrats in Congress.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that ‘the Fed’s $4 trillion in ‘assets’ is created through ‘imaginary money’ such as buying up U.S. debt as it did bad mortgages back in the subprime mortgage collapse.  He says there must be more transparency.  
  69. 2021 Friday C: The United States added 379,000 jobs in February bringing down the unemployment numbers to 6.2-percent.  However, as the Democrats continue trying to shove a $15 per hour minimum wage through and as they continue bringing in hundreds of thousands more illegals- plus legalize the existing 30-50 million illegal aliens roaming the shadows of the country, unemployment is going to skyrocket as the Cloward and Piven strategy to topple the existing order and replacing it with socialism continues unabated.   Democrats agree on smaller but longer jobless aid to U.S. workers so they can continue sitting at home spanking the wank. 
  70. 2021 Friday D:  Two city council members in New Jersey have been indicted for engineering mass voting fraud in the Garden State by tampering with mail-in ballots.  Elsewhere, a journalist investigating violent crime in northern California is victimized by a gun-wielding robber.  In other fascinating news, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, Democrat, a man who had an ongoing sexual liaison with a Chi-Com agent, is suing President Donald J. Trump for causing him fear during the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Good luck with that you POS.  To alleviate such fears, General Russell Honoré- the man put in charge to get to the bottom of the riots- says a Quick Reaction Force must be kept in the nation’s capital at all times so IF so-called ‘right-wing mobs’ show up (but not left-wing mobs), they can restore order to the streets.  This will cost just $130 million per year to maintain.  What a load of crap.  Folks- there is BUT ONE REASON as to why troops still patrol Washington, D.C., ONE REASON: the Democrats KNOW that everyone knows they stole the 2020 Presidential Election.  Otherwise, WHY all the fear?  Why all the fencing?  Why all the troops, troops they despise, still on scene, patrolling the streets?  They know WE KNOW they stole the election and that what happened on January 6, 2021, was a FALSE FLAG OPERATION of epic proportions.   Hence why they are flooding the country with an army of military-aged illegal alien males.
  71. 2021 Friday E: Speaking of the Capitol Hill Riots, the Assistant Director of the FBI for Counterterrorism Jo Sanborn says that “NO FIREARMS were recovered from the more than 300 arrested on scene on January 6, 2021.  NO FIREARMS.”  Thus, we know that what happened on January 6 was indeed a FALSE FLAG OPERATION organized by the Democratic-Socialists to make it appear as though Trump supporters- note supporters of law and order- stormed the Capitol.  Much like Cesar Sayoc, the guy busted for sending ‘pipe bombs’ via the USPS to various Democrat politicians back in 2017 or so we recall, a man with Trump stickers plastered all over his van, the Capitol Hill Riots are just as phony.  The Democrats engineer these farces so they can use them for political subterfuge. 
  72. 2021 Friday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 115,781,179 confirmed cases, +313,555, 2,572,353, confirmed deaths, +6,984, and 65,296,409 confirmed recoveries, +262,009.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,130,219 confirmed cases, up 64,007 from yesterday’s reporting, 525,560 confirmed deaths, UP 1,708, and 106,309,314 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 197,083 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  (Note- send the J & J vaccine overseas to the Third World seeing as how fetal tissues from aborted children are used in both the making and testing of this vaccine).
  73. 2021 Friday 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: 3,587,946 confirmed cases, 53,586 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 441 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii once again has frozen its information…WHY?  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 346,058 confirmed cases, 5,098 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Connecticut: currently, they have 285,330 confirmed cases, 7,704 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 793,407 confirmed cases, 5,822 confirmed deaths, and 746,228 confirmed recoveries.  .
  74. 2021 Friday H: Somehow, the Democrats have been able to drive the markets back up on this Friday- it’s artificial, the collapse is still coming.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,496.30, UP 572.60 points (+1.85%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,920.50, UP 196.68 points (+1.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,841.94, UP 73.47 points (+1.95%).  The price of GOLD is $1,698.20 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.30 per troy ounce, +0.01 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,133.30 per troy oz, +5.00 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $4.10 per pound, +0.02 (+0.60%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,342.80 per troy oz, -11.60 (-0.49%) Same as yesterday.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.28 per barrel, +0.19 (+0.29%)  Gas price have gone up by 20 cents this past week.  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.30.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.94.
  75. 2021 Friday I: Update report on the illegal alien invasion at our southern border: CBP reports that 100,000 illegals were detained at the border in February which means at least 150,000 to 200,000 managed to slip through.  Not good.  In other news, we learn that California has a $15 billion surplus yet Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom has his hand out begging for federal money.  Speaking of Governor Newsom, the recall effort has more than 2 million signatures which spells doom for him.  The governor also offered the California Teachers Association a $6.6 billion deal if they would reopen the schools and they told him to ‘f**k off.’   IF we only had someone like Ronald Reagan who would tell the union, ‘go back to work or you are fired’ as he did the air traffic controllers.
  76. 2021 Friday J: A new book claims (and we believe this) former President Barack Hussein Obama feared this his former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden would embarrass himself if he ran in 2020.’  Well, it’s clear as to whose voice now whispers to Joe via his earpiece: Barack Hussein Obama.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump RIPS Joe Biden asunder over his appalling inhumane border policies, policies that allow for the victimization of women, children, and homos as they plod toward the border between Mexico and the U.S.  This is not right, Joe, and yet the leftists around Old Joe continue urging him to do nothing to halt the tidal wave.  Illegal alien hunting licenses coming soon?
  77. 2021 Friday K: The trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin begins on Monday.  He is the main defendant in the trial of four MPD officers involved in the death of George Floyd last May.  The city of Minneapolis as well as Hennepin County are fearful of mob violence and thus plan to spend up to $1 million securing not only the courthouse but five police precincts, government buildings and county buildings.  $645 thousand will be directed into fencing, additional law enforcement, and who knows?  Maybe even Minnesota National Guard.  Much like Democrats in Washington, D.C. have established “Fort Pelosi,” city and county officials want to follow the same strategies.  The fact that state Attorney General Keith Ellison, a Democrat Muslim, is personally trying the case could be reason enough for the extra security.  It sounds as though Officer Chauvin might be found innocent even though they are charging him with 2nd degree and possibly 3rd degree homicide as well as manslaughter which does not say much about Ellison’s prosecutorial abilities.  You heard it here first.
  78. 2021 Friday L: Although Democrats are celebrating the recent jobs report, 4.1 million Americans have been unemployed for six months or longer while another 3.5 million have completely left the work force.  Add to that the loss of 61,000 construction jobs- which the government lays at the feet of ‘severe weather conditions’ and not at the feet of Joe Biden who with the stroke of a pen eliminated thousands of heavy construction jobs.  Things will only continue to worsen thanks to the illegal alien invasion along the southern border.   Still, Democrats are claiming success by negotiating an agreement to continue jobless benefits of $300 per week for the unemployed until September 09, 2021.  At what point will the Chi-Coms say, “NO MORE MONEY?”  We suspect soon, about the same time the landing craft begin dropping their gates on the shores of Taiwan.
  79. 2021 Friday M: California health officials announce that as of April 1, 2021, people will be able to attend Major League Baseball games as well as outdoor concerts and other functions while NBA games and other indoor events remain off-limits.  Of course, masks will still have to be worn or the ‘mask police’ will come and arrest you.   In other Chi-Vi news, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster is lifting face mask requirements in restaurants and other facilities including government seeing as how cases of the Wuhan Meat Market Malady continue to lessen.  The governor is placing the responsibility onto citizens to do what they deem to be correct.
  80. 2021 Friday N: Diners enjoying an evening out in a restaurant in Mogadishu, Somalia, got the surprise of their lives when an explosives-laden vehicle crashed in through the front, detonated, killing at least 10, injuring another 30, with many more feared to be trapped in the rubble.   The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes once again.  We hope the diners had not yet paid their checks.  In other foreign news, YouTube is removing five channels utilized by the Myanmar junta calling the shots in Burma.  Liberals are angry that the generals in Myanmar are doing what the Democrats in Washington, D.C. are doing, i.e., launching a coup against the country with which they are charged to protect.  Thug politicians despise copycats. 
  81. 2021 Friday O: Speaking of the Democratic-Socialists, they are following the plan used by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who created a coup, had his loyal thugs ‘crush it,’ and then arrested and imprisoned tens of thousands of his ‘enemies’ within government, the military, law enforcement, and among the citizens of a once-proud country.   Something else of interest, Tucker Carlson on Fox News aired a story tonight in which, he said- no kidding!- the federal government is going to bestow an award on every National Guard trooper at the Capitol- the Presidential Inauguration Support Ribbon- that if true is the most bull crap thing we’ve ever heard since President Barack Obama considered creating an award for the U.S. military for NOT firing back at jihadists if civilians were in the area.  Yet, as you should recall, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden (at the time) droned more innocent civilians than terrorists during their eight years at a reported 90-percent innocents killed per 10-percent Islamist thugs.  My, my, my!
  82. 2021 Friday P: Ex-Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall told Dallas reporters that a police officer suspected of ordering a double kidnapping followed by a double murder which apparently occurred was allowed to remain on the job for longer than 18 months instead of being placed on administrative leave.  The Dallas County D.A., the Dallas P.D., and the Feds wanted to allow Officer Bryan Riser to remain on the jobs so as not to arouse suspicion.  Apparently, his crimes were not connected to his job as a law enforcement officer although no additional details have been released.  Current Police Chief Eddie Garcia says they have ‘no known motive’ for the crimes committed by Officer Riser.  
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Since the Democratic-Socialist predicted QAnon invasion of the Capitol yesterday didn’t pan out, the Dems are now saying, ‘it’s on for March 20, 2021, so everyone will have to flee who works in Congress while the National Guard will remain into May (or longer).’  Why the Democrats say this moronic bulls**t is beyond us because IF an invasion was coming, they wouldn’t just magically appear out of thin air.  They would have to either parachute in or would have to assemble outside the capital for approximately one week during which time the Democrats could launch air-and-artillery strikes on them, sending them scurrying back into their QAnon sewers.  The American people must stand up to this insanity and not allow their elected leaders to continue perpetuating it.  Otherwise, the RED STATES and counties are going to secede and leave pockets of BLUE POLITICIANS isolated in pockets and islands.
  84. 2021 Friday R: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1639 with a jackpot of $55 million up for grabs: 10, 11, 17, 27, 54, and Mega 20.  Out of 52,457 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,996 apiece.
  85. 2022 Saturday:  Maybe there’ll be an update, maybe there won’t.  Then again, the Joestapo could shut us down.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band’s success was relatively short-lived which was sad, but the band was fraying at the seams.  The next album they released was “Moondog Matinee” (October 15, 1973) featured no new material, but all covers of classic rock and rockabilly tunes the group played in their earliest day.  The band features the same lineup of  Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  Sadly, success and too much time together on the road and in the studio combined with all the excesses stardom brings was proving to be difficult to fight.  One can hear the fabric ripping if one listens closely enough to the music.  Ah, well, even having issues, it’s still an album worth owning which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and then pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be extremely glad you did.

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

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

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


Saturday, March 05, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

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

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

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

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

[viii] Hugo Chavez should be frying in hell.  The scum was such a believer in the strength of socialism that his Cuban doctors killed him via their shoddy treatment.  The POS should have sought U.S., UK, or even Russian medical treatment and perhaps he would still be alive.  And this is the crap that socialist candidate Bernie Sanders, senator from Vermont, wants to force on Americans?

[ix] Everyone involved in the coup to remove Trump from office, destroy his family and his businesses should be in prison.  Lock them up, President Trump, because this f**king scum would sure as hell lock YOU up.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

56. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2022

2021 Thursday: Day 37 of the Biden Regime- Congressman James Panetta, D-CA 20th congressional district, and nearly two dozen other House Democrats are pushing decrepit ‘Old Joe’ Biden to give up sole authority to launch nukes should the need to do so arises. The Democrats want a cabal of the president, vice president, and House speaker to make the determination which will delay any response America might have against an impending nuclear attack. Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, says this is ‘weird.’

  62. 2019 Monday: Following an assault by Internet trolls and Bots attacking the movie, “Captain Marvel,” the film review site Rotten Tomatoes makes ways as to how fans can rate and comment on movies.  In Vietnam, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrives ahead of the upcoming summit between his country and President Donald J. Trump of the United States; he takes in the sights.  Elsewhere, peace talks between the U.S. and the Taliban begin in Qatar.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: President Trump returns from India and announces he has asked for $2.5 billion with which to combat the Coronavirus in the United States.  Senate Minority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says it’s ‘not enough.  Currently, there are 80,000 cases worldwide.  The president should have asked for more.’  Meanwhile, the Democratic 2020 Presidential Debates continue with Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Joe Biden, and Mayor Pete.   
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: Italy is now beset by Chinese Virus cases as the ‘VID has infected nearly 100 more which drives their cases up to 322 what with a death toll of 11- and Italy told its citizens to be “WOKE” and go out and hug Chinese tourists.  Look at what it gets you- sick people and dead folks.  Austria and Croatia report their first cases of coronavirus while in Spain, tourists are being locked up in hotels to prohibit the spread of this disease.  In Iran as the outbreak continues to worsen, the country’s health minister tests positive for this evil disease. Switzerland, Algeria, and other nations around the world are taking the opportunity to seal off air travel to communist China such as Canada.  Meanwhile, the government of Sweden demands the Chi-Com ambassador meet with them over its sentencing of a Swedish bookseller in the PRC to a decade in the slammer for ‘espionage.’
  65. 2021 Thursday: Day 37 of the Biden Regime- Congressman James Panetta, D-CA 20th congressional district, and nearly two dozen other House Democrats are pushing decrepit ‘Old Joe’ Biden to give up sole authority to launch nukes should the need to do so arises.  The Democrats want a cabal of the president, vice president, and House speaker to make the determination which will delay any response America might have against an impending nuclear attack.  Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, says this is ‘weird.’  The question is, WHY?  Speaking of this lunacy, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, quipped, “I don’t think Joe Biden’s in charge.’  We concur.
  66. 2021 Thursday A: Newsmax’ White House correspondent John Gizzi says that Neera Tanden- Joe Biden’s pick to head the White House Office of Management and Budget is prepared to withdraw her confirmation seeing as how she’s receiving pushback from both Senate Republicans and Democrats.   Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, says he’s not voting for this skank.  Meanwhile, former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm by a vote of 64-35 is confirmed as the next U.S. secretary of Energy.   Confirming this Chi-Com lover gives Beijing and OPEC a big boost in their drive to monopolize energy as well as to collapse U.S. domestic energy production. 
  67. 2021 Thursday B: Conservative lawmakers are asking for a timeline as to when House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi plans on removing the fences around the White House and the Capitol Building as well as when National Guard troops will stop patrolling the streets of Washington, D.C.  The Democrats have transformed parts of the nation’s capital into a Baghdad-style “Green Zone,” of sorts, a heavily-fortified zone.  We believe the troops are there and the fences are up because the Dems KNOW they stole the 2020 Presidential Election.
  68. 2021 Thursday C: Black Lives Matter is launching a ‘survival fund’ of sorts with $3 million as the Democrats in Congress continue dragging out the COVID-19, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, relief fund.   House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has snarked ‘we feed them, Wolf (Blitzer), we feed them.  Do you feed them?” She was referring to ‘feeding’ the country’s impoverished and its illegal aliens.  We don’t want you to feed us, you senile old witch, we want the economy to reopen.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday D: Tony Perkins has told Newsmax TV the Dems want to force ALL Americans into participating in ABORTIONS by seeking to use taxpayer dollars to fund this abomination not just here in the United States but around the world.  In so doing, it taints the souls of everyone which is not right.  It’s time for Pope Francis to boot Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and every other Catholic-in-Name-Only (CINO) from the church.  Excommunicate them, Pope Francis, excommunicate these murdering scumbags NOW.   In other liberal Democrat Party news, Congressman Sean Maloney, D-NY 18th congressional district, claims Democrats are supportive of socialism and that there are no socialist Democrats.  Good try.  Finally, people are flooding out of the woodwork now to accuse imploding New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, accusing him of sexual abuse, harassment, and mistreatment.  YOU reap what you sow, you POS!
  70. 2021 Thursday E: CPAC plans to honor Rush Limbaugh.  CPAC Chair Matt Schlapp says that President Donald J. Trump knows his speech this upcoming Sunday is an ‘important reset’ for his future in GOP politics.  Meanwhile, the GOP is pushing back on Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s call for a ‘riot commission’ to look into the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Pelosi wants to tar-and-feather Trump supporters with the riot engineered by the Democrats, but we are not going to permit them to get away with this outrageous behavior.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: In upcoming Summer Olympics news, the delayed Olympic torch relay is going to have fans, but NO cheering will be allowed.  Meanwhile, the IOC says that Brisbane, Australia, is the preferred site for the 2032 Summer Olympics. 
  72. 2021 Thursday G: The Justice Department’s top watchdog is investigating claims by a Boeing engineer of being surveilled by the FBI over claims the individual was spying for Beijing.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Joe Biden’s pick to be U.S. Trade Representative- Katherine Tai- says, ‘Chi-Coms both our rivals and our friends.’  Yet another pro-Chi-Com hack in the Biden administration.   In other news, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signs into law a bill abolishing cash bail for ALL criminal defendants awaiting trial.  Wow.  Thugs are going to be running amok in the streets of the Windy City.  Oh, wait, thugs are already running amok there. 
  73. 2021 Thursday H: Vice President Kamala Harris is now encouraging black folks to rush out and get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We recall when YOU said NOT to get the vaccine, you know, before you became VP, so what’s up with the reversal?  Our very own Bea O’Malley has said, ‘any time white liberals tell black folks to do something for their own good, it never works out that way.’  Even though you aren’t white, Kamala, you may as well be seeing as how you lack the street creds of a legit black American.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, France says it’s going to impose ‘localized lockdowns on areas infected with the Chi-Com virus rather than lock down the entire country.’ 
  74. 2021 Thursday I: New York State prosecutors now have President Donald J. Trump’s tax records.  We suspect it’s going to be a DRY well.  Still, it’s going to be fun watching them twist, turn, and wet their pants as they try to get some dirt on President Donald J. Trump.  In other interesting news, five counties in Oregon want to secede from that crackpot state and join with Idaho.  We have a suggestion- how about reviving the drive to create the state of Jefferson?  That concept featured counties in Washington and Oregon east of the Cascades forming their own state with possibly a few of California’s northern counties.  People in these areas are deeply conservative whereas the coastal portions of those states are full of rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth lunatics.  Hell, the county of Kern in California should become its own state.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: This week, there were 737,000 new jobless claims which is down from the previous week.  GDP has been revised up although it equates with what the country had back in 1946 following World War II.  Meanwhile, the FCC auctions off 5G airwaves bringing in $81 billion with ATT and Verizon being the big winners.  Elsewhere, GameStop is making another run today.   In other economic news, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, blasts the ‘Joe Biden’ COVID-19 Relief Bill as being little more than a socialist wish list, something we contend is a Democratic-Socialist ‘wet dream.’
  76. 2022 Friday: Please, stick around for the latest news of the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album Fairport Convention released was the group’s next archival live album, “Evanston 1975- the Illinois Broadcast,” on July 21, 1974.  Recorded at a radio station, this was a glorious effort as it featured Sandy Denny back in the fold.   Besides Ms. Denny on vocals and piano, the band features (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars and vocals) (3) Jerry Donahue (lead guitar and backing vocals) (4) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars) and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano).  Each song is unique, the overall sound ostentatious, and all we can say is that we wholly recommend this album to fans of both the blog and of the band.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and then add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did- we guarantee it.

Trump’s citizenship test for illegal fence-jumpers and river-swimmers.  Speaking of illegal aliens, ICE reports that illegal aliens are getting their Chi-Vi vaccines ahead of U.S. citizens.  Representative Debbie Lesko, R-AZ, is upset about this, saying that seniors call her office every day to discover when they will be able to receive their vaccines.  Nope, we must immunize illegal aliens and felons first.  Another Arizona lawmaker, Congressman Andy Biggs, Republican, says there is ‘an explosion of unaccompanied illegal alien minors at the border.’  We encourage laying in of minefields. 
  77. 2021 Monday A: As Joe Biden nominee confirmations continue, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says she WON’T vote to confirm OMB nominee Neera Tanden for hateful attacks on Republicans.  Meanwhile, Judge Merrick Garland, Joe Biden’s nominee for attorney-general is shagging questions today in the U.S. Senate.  He claims that ‘politics won’t influence or affect criminal probes into scumbags such as Hunter Biden.’  We shall see.   Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Judge Garland for not labeling James Comey as a ‘TERRIBLE’ FBI director.  Next, the White House calls for a ‘moment of silence’ (what a load of festering fecal matter) over hitting the dubious benchmark of more than half-a-million deaths.  (Please see our ‘VID statistics later today so you can see just how many people have succumbed to the Wuhan Virus Crisis while Joe Biden’s been in the White House.  It’s a whole lot, folks…).  Finally, New Jersey’s governor signs a bill establishing the framework for legal pakalolo in his state.
  78. 2021 Monday B: Chi-Com news- Researchers conclude that the Chi-Coms copied NSA spyware code which should surprise NO one.  In other SHOCKING NEWS, the infamous Wuhan Institute of Virology is going to continue receiving U.S. taxpayers’ dollars for continued research into bat viruses and other evil stuff.  WHY are we funding the Chi-Com research, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden, especially when they are the ones who caused the global pandemic, whether through ineptitude or on purpose?  What’s more, we should be doing our own biowarfare research, not giving the Chi-Coms our money.  Someone, please impeach and remove Joe Biden NOW.  In other Chi-Com-related news, Representative Bill Johnson says, ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies show weakness on the Chi-Coms human rights abuses.’  After all, ‘Pro-China Joe’ shut the Keystone XL pipeline down on Day No. 1 so that oil will be flowing west from Canada’s coast to mainland China.  Finally, the Chi-Coms are urging their stooge in the White House to lift all trade sanctions and tariffs and to show Beijing some ‘goodwill.’  F**k Beijing.
  79. 2021 Monday C: The Roberts Supreme Court continues to show it’s in league with the Washington, D.C. swamp when Roberts says, ‘it’s okay for New York prosecutors to get their grubby hands-on Donald J. Trump’s tax records as far back as 2011.  We also hear that Associate Justice Clarence Thomas blasted Roberts and other liberal justices for their unwillingness to hear cases related to the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election.   SCOTUS could also hear cases on various states’ new laws restricting abortion rights within their borders.  We know how John Roberts will rule now don’t we? 
  80. 2021 Monday D: Corrupt (allegedly) Dominion Voting Systems is suing My Pillow’s Mike Lindell for his blowing the lid off the can regarding Dominion’s and associated company, Smartmatic’s hand in STEALING the 2020 Presidential Election as well as various other elections around the country.   Elsewhere, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she’s whose face droops down on one side, is funneling $300,000 to help gerrymandering efforts after condemning Republicans for gerrymandering districts in Red States.  Say it ain’t so, Nancy!
  81. 2021 Monday E: The Harris administration, uh, the ‘Biden administration’ is downplaying the rhetoric on Iran, hoping the Iranians will return to the flawed JCPOA- the Iran nuclear ‘deal.’  Speaking of the Iranians, the head of the IAEA says Iran is ‘going to limit access to its nuclear programs.’  Hmmm, why would this be?  Speaking of Iran, eight rockets were fired at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad’s Green Zone today.   Also speaking of Iran, U.S. families of detained Americans in that hellish, pro-jihad country are begging the ‘Biden administration’ to do something to get their family members home.  Come on, Joe, do something about getting these people repatriated to the U.S.
  82. 2021 Monday F: An NBC poll shows- much to their horror- that blue collar workers of all colors flocked to President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, when he gives the keynote address at CPAC this week, with a ‘show of force,’ he’s going to place his grip onto the GOP.  The Grand Old Party is Trump’s party, and we look forward to seeing “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell’s RINO picks fall in one election after another.  McConnell must be impeached and removed from office.   In other news, a high school senior in New York City is battling the Di Blasio Regime over its closure of Trump Corporation-operated ice-skating rinks.  In other news, Prime Minister Boris Johnson, aka “BoJo,” says that all UK schools should be reopened by March 8.  Excellent.  IF only U.S. educators would follow suit.
  83. 2021 Monday G: The United States Marine Corps is going to substitute ‘board games’ for its upcoming March military drills so as to create ‘smart infantry.’  Sounds like a load of bull crap to us, a stinking load of bull crap.  Meanwhile, 170 of 254 counties in Texas are struggling with winter-related storms and power outages- fresh water is difficult by which to come.  Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer blames Texas for what’s happened to it saying they chose to go alone on energy and now they must sleep in the bed they made.’  Good, Chuck, good.  What a POS.  In other news, the family of slain Nation of Islam leader Malcolm X (allegedly, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan is the man who ordered the hit) wants the case reopened so the law can find and punish his murderers.  Find Reverend Louie and ask HIM.   Elsewhere, United Airlines is pulling 24 of it Boeing 777 airliners out of use to double check the engines.   Finally, Joe Biden says smaller firms will have exclusive PPP access over the next two weeks.
  84. 2021 Monday H: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 111,434,139 confirmed cases, +165,977, 2,467,481 confirmed deaths, +3,462, and 62,896,305 confirmed recoveries, +149,843.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,409,269 confirmed cases, up 84,306 from yesterday’s reporting, 504,012 confirmed deaths, UP 1,519, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than four weeks- what’s up with that? NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 174,411 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S. which means, you have more than half of what Trump had from the beginning of the outbreak which means you are a failure like Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  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.
  85. 2021 Monday 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: 3,531,979 confirmed cases, 49,380 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,950 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Louisiana: currently, they have 426,644 confirmed cases, 9,477 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 750,043 confirmed cases, 5,577 confirmed deaths, and 704,018 confirmed recoveries.   
  86. 2021 Monday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,521.69, UP 27.37 points (+0.087%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,533.05, DOWN 341.42 points (-2.46%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,876.50, DOWN 30.21 points (-0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,809.10 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $28.21 per troy ounce, +0.13 (+0.45%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,283.10 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $4.15 per pound, +0.01 (+0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,402.90 per troy oz, +23.10 (+0.97%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.19 per barrel, +0.49 (+0.79%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.73.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.
  87.  2021 Monday K: Following an Australian news anchor pointing out the obvious- that the ‘leader of the Free World (Joe Biden) seems to be cognitively disabled,’ Facebook bans Australian citizens from using its platform.  WTF?  Everyone knows that ‘Pro-China Joe’ is not there.  He demonstrates it every day and the fact that Kamala Harris is making phone calls to foreign leaders should worry the hell out of everyone.  Not only is the woman easily bought, but she’s also not that bright so the American people must begin demanding an accounting of what the Democrats did during the 2020 Presidential Election.   Meanwhile, the National Spelling Bee will return but in a mostly virtual format.  Elsewhere, the liberal mainstream media is going after Newsmax, One America News, and Fox News.  They cannot stand for free-flowing speech.
  88. 2022 Tuesday: Let’s see what chicanery ensues today…

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 studio album, “Shuffle and Go,” came out on February 21, 2020, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 13 glorious tracks, all 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.

  51. 2016 Friday: Harper Lee- the author of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” died at age 89.  Elsewhere, the ‘so-called religion of peace’- Islam- strikes yet again as suicide bombers in northern Cameroon blow up at least 24 people and wound another 112 at an outdoor market.  What the f**k is wrong with Boko Haram.  Meanwhile, Israeli police are forced to shoot and kill three Palestinian jihadists in Jerusalem and the West Bank.
  52. 2017 Sunday: American jazz guitarist Larry Coryell dies at age 73.  Elsewhere in Iraq, Iraqi troops- backed by the U.S.- are fighting their way into western Mosul to drive the ISIS thugs out of the city.  Meanwhile, new Department of Homeland Security Director John Kelly signs a mass deportation order which causes Democrats to go insane.  They love their illegal aliens.

  54. 2019 Tuesday: Sen. Bernie Sanders confirms he is going to run for president of the United States a second time.  Meanwhile, President Trump announces plans to elevate former Acting U.S. Attorney General Matthew Whitaker as deputy head of the U.S. Department of Justice.  Next, President Trump signs the order to create the U.S. Space Force, the newest branch of government that will prepare to defend the nation’s interests in the realm of space.
  55. 2020 Wednesday: Information appears that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that multi-billionaire Michael “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg is indeed doing everything imaginable to buy the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  As of today, he has spent more than $400 million on network and cable TV channels as well as on radio.  What he has spent on Internet advertising is so far unknown.  Tonight, six candidates face off in the Democratic 2020 Primary Debate on NBC: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and former Mayor Bloomberg.  Absent are billionaire Tom Steyer and of course, Tulsi Gabbard, whom the Democrats do NOT want.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich gives a news conference on the porch of his home.  His sentence commuted to time served the day before by President Donald J. Trump, he proclaims himself a “Trump-o-Crat” and pledges to work to help others who have been unjustly punished by the Comey-led FBI.  Good for you, Mr. Governor, good for you.  Finally, President Donald Trump visits the city of Bakersfield, home of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day.
  56. 2021 Friday: Day 31 of the Biden Regime: first of all- due to growing pushback on both sides of the aisle- Joe Biden acknowledges the $15 per hour minimum wage hike may not happen anytime soon.   Next, the House Democrats demonstrate how much they hate President Donald J. Trump by their creation of a new bill- the “No Glory for Hate Act”- which will prohibit twice-impeached presidents from being celebrated, buried in Arlington National Cemetery, or having monuments and roads and the like named after them.  Wow.  Elsewhere, as the investigators investigate the Capitol Hill police officers, six of them are suspended with pay while another 35 are being scrutinized for having affiliations to President Donald J. Trump.  Kool-Aid-guzzling U.S. Army General Russell L. Honoré Ret. And chief inquisitor of the Antifa-infiltrated- and- lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, is digging posthaste to uncover the evildoers behind the appalling assault on Capitol Hill, only he’s looking at those with MAGA sympathies and not at the real instigators and proponents of what happened on the dreary day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter stormed the Capitol. 
  57. 2021 Friday A: Climate ‘czar’ John F. Kerry vows tough stance on all climate evildoers in the U.S. as the United States rejoins the Paris Climate Accord, yet another selling out of the United States to globalists.   Meanwhile, in the ‘post-COVID-19 world,’ the TSA announces plans to hire another 6,000 agents so the liberals can increase the numbers of their secret police at all airports across the nation.  Man, that Chi-Vi is permitting our government to skip down the totalitarian path.  Elsewhere, in the Free World of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, proposes sweeping election reforms in his state.   Finally, the Minneapolis Police Department are beefing up security both at the courthouse and around the city as the Derek Chauvin trial looms on the horizon. 
  58. 2021 Friday B: Boko Haram thugs in Niger kidnap 27 students from a boarding school and carry them off into the jungle.  The SOBS must be short on wives, again.  Next, the Kremlin warns the West to pull back from sanctions related to Alexei Navalny’s prison sentence, ‘or else.’  Speaking of thugs, the ‘paradise of Iran’ demands the U.S. repeal and remove ALL sanctions on their country imposed by President Donald J. Trump.  Don’t worry, grand ayatollah, the U.S. is going to rejoin the flawed nuclear deal the Obama-Biden administration participated in with your country.  Speaking of this deal, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasts the Biden-Harris administration for reentering this deal.  Under President Trump, the Iranians were on their knees begging for mercy.  Now, it’s back to business as usual. 
  59. 2021 Friday C: Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department imposes travel sanctions on 43 Belorussian officials and bigwigs over the actions of their corrupt government.  The Biden administration loves Iran but wants to punish Russia and Belorussia.  WTF?  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is attempting to rally ‘quad democracies’ to pushback against a belligerent communist China.  Why?  The Biden Family and many members of his administration LOVE the Chi-Coms.  Must be just for show.
  60. 2021 Friday D: RINO Senator Jon Thune says the ‘GOP is engaging in ‘cancel culture’ by going after the losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump as well as the RINO senators who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump.’  Will these losers ever learn their flipping lessons?  It appears not.  The American people will have to show them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. begins admitting the first batch of illegal aliens begging for asylum into the country even though south Texas mayors are begging the federal government not to do this because they have no support with which, they can provide them.  Let ‘em freeze.   Elsewhere, the feds are pushing to kick the National Rifle Association’s top lawyer off the bankruptcy case.   Finally, good citizens are working alongside police in Oakland’s Chinatown to catch the thug or thugs who have been attacking Chinese citizens.  We still suspect when the culprit is caught, it will be another minority.  Speaking of the Chinese, Great Britain is welcoming in thousands of Hong Kong’s citizens who are escaping the crackdown by the thugs in Beijing.  In the next five years, London could welcome in as many as 300,000 people along with their dependents.
  61. 2021 Friday E: ERCOT says the catastrophic collapse of the power grid in Texas which led to massive blackouts would have occurred anyway even without the severe weather storm.  Still, the operators have gotten the power system up-and-running.  What the heck has happened to nuclear energy?  It’s safe, dependable, cheap, and lasts forever.  All we need do is to find a way to recycle used nuclear fuel so we can reuse it.   Elsewhere, Dolly Parton nixes the idea of putting a statue dedicated to her in the Tennessee State Capitol Building.  Who would want such an honor in this world of left-wing pansy cancel culture?  Revered today, torn down and defaced tomorrow.  Finally, doctors at Johns Hopkins University says, ‘herd immunity for the Chi-Com Flu can be achieved by April 2021.’
  62. 2021 Friday F: We learn that the Wuhan Institute of Virology has received U.S. money to study dangerous diseases including the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chinese Virus, millions of vaccines for this lab-engineered malady continue to linger in freezer facilities across the country.  Joe Biden says ‘NO such vaccine existed when he came into office’ but we know that a man who asks his wife, ‘where we’re at’ every day he awakens in the White House residence does not know very much, including that he and his wife received their vaccines ahead of his taking the oath of office.  Speaking of the Chi-Com pandemic, the Baby Evita- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez (birth name) is jumping on the anti-Andrew “Killer” Cuomo bandwagon and much like NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, driving the dagger into the beleaguered Empire State governor.   Wow.  Just like piranha fish.  
  63. 2021 Friday G: The American Civil Liberties Union asks SCOTUS to declare all-male draft ‘unconstitutional.’  Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian files for divorce from entertainment mogul Kanye West.  Next, a day after its passage, a federal court strikes down South Carolina’s abortion bill, one that prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.  The bill is designed to prohibit abortion chop shops such as Planned Parenthood from operating in minority communities where they murder mostly minority unborn children, sell the fetal body parts to scientists, Satanists, and other sick f**ks, and then donate money back to the Democratic Socialist Party of the United States.  WTF?  Meanwhile, Representative Mark Green says, ‘the Biden immigration plan is pretty flipping crazy.’  Amen.  Illegal alien hunting licenses, anyone?  Next, Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO., to Newsmax TV: “Follow the Trump template to restore the economy.”   Finally, following Nikki Haley’s failed attempt to meet with President Donald J. Trump at Mar-A-Lago after BLASTING the 45th president and the man who made her ambassador to the United Nations, Senator Lindsey Graham has embarked on a peace mission to see the president.  Interesting Note- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered all flags to fly at half-mast for Rush Limbaugh.
  64. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 109,901,931 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,850.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, UP 2,253, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 31 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 168,862 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  65. 2021 Friday 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: 3,514,246 confirmed cases, 48,411 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 428 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 335,340 confirmed cases, 4,868 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: South Carolina- currently, they have 497,937 confirmed cases, 8,213 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 741,934 confirmed cases, 5,509 confirmed deaths, and 688,184 confirmed recoveries.     
  66. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,816 cases, +10 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,696 confirmed recoveries, +46 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Maggot-eating scum.   NOTE- communists lie.  They ALWAYS LIE.  They lie about everything.  They cover up dastardly deeds like that POS moronic New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and when threatened with exposure, they begin making threats.  Scumbags, all of them scumbags.
  67. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,494.32, UP 0.98 points (+0.003%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,874.46, UP 9.11 points (+0.066%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,906.71, DOWN 7.26 points (-0.19%).  Although stocks are jumping up and down, we still anticipate the collapse of the U.S. economy as long as (1) businesses don’t reopen in BLUE states; (2) Joe Biden allows the Third World to flood into the United States; (3) economic idiots are running the show in the ‘Biden administration;’ and (4) fossil fuel production is collapsing thanks to Green New Deal policies being implemented by the frigging Democratic-Socialists.
  68. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,783.10 per troy oz., +5.70 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, +0.12 (+0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,282.20 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.84%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,379.80 per troy oz, +21.00 (+0.89%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.01 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000018 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.95 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.  Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1635 with a $20 million pot up for grabs.  Here are the numbers- 27, 32, 47, 50, 53, and Mega 04.  Out of 52,450 winning tickets, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $421 apiece.
  69. 2022 Saturday: Stick around for the latest news…

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

Friday, February 19, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

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

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


Saturday, February 19, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[ii] 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.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

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

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

[vii] We began celebrating the music of Wishbone Ash beginning on Sunday, October 28, 2018 and continued it through Sunday, January 06, 2019.  From there, we covered the music of Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash beginning on January 07, 2019 through Sunday, January 13, 2019.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection of the BEST rock-and-roll music.  You will be glad you did.

[viii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  On Tuesday, 18-January-2011, we promoted the album, “Rumours.”  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you. 

[ix] We look forward to sharing the music of AC/DC sometime within the next five years.  Remain vigilant for the day when we do.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

42. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 2022

64. 2021 Thursday A: Impeach #45 II continues in the U.S. Senate. It appears that Democrats prosecuting the FORMER president believe that if they continue hammering the same points over and over and over and over that somehow, it is going to drive an increasing number of inattentive GOP senators to vote to convict. Not so.

  52. 2010 Thursday: A report says that improved corporate profits is not leading to expected job growth.

  58. 2016 Thursday: In Monterey, Mexico, a prison riot breaks out between inmates of two drug cartels which leaves at least 52 dead and countless more injured. Meanwhile, six Democratic candidates seeking the nomination of their party appear on the party’s sixth debate stage.  This would be Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley.  Protesters demanding a $15-hour minimum wage cause problems outside the site.
  59. 2017 Saturday: ISIS strikes at a nightclub in Istanbul, Turkey, when a terrorist 39 people. He is captured by police and taken into custody.
  60. 2018 Sunday: A Russian airliner crashes southwest of Moscow, killing all 71 on board. Many suspect terrorism.  The body count is rising in the region as Russians, Syrians, Iranians, Turks, and Israelis are battling jihadists and one another in the area.  It is what it is, folks, as long as the Iranians, Russians, and Turks are meddling in Syria, there will never be peace.  Elsewhere, in the U.S., New York City prosecutors are out on strike protesting federal ICE agents picking up criminal illegal aliens at the Bronx Courthouse. 
  61. 2019 Monday: Two Indian states see 100 people die and numerous more injured from the consumption of poisonous bootleg liquor. Elsewhere, in an effort to maintain continuity of trade between the United Kingdom and Switzerland following a successful “Brexit,” the countries sign an updated agreement so that friendly trade relations will continue. 
  62. 2020 Tuesday: The New Hampshire primary occurs on this date, and it appears that the battle is between Princess Pete and Commie Bernie with the Schnoz, Amy Klobuchar hanging in third place although no one knows for sure at this time.  Joe Biden, however, has already bolted for South Carolina, demonstrating he knows he is going to lose here, too.  Meanwhile, an audio tape of Mike Bloomberg speaking from six years ago about busting minorities and sending them to jail for pot possession hits the scene.  My, my, my! Update: with 78% of the vote in, Fox News Channel calls it thus: Sen. Bernie Sanders: 25.7%; Pete Buttigieg: 24.4%; Amy Klobuchar: 19.9%; Elizabeth Warren: 9.4%; Joe Biden: 8.4%; Tom Steyer: 3.6%; Tulsi Gabbard: 3.2%; Andrew Yang: 2.9%; Michael Bennett and Deval Patrick: 0. Andrew Yang was the first to toss in the towel within moments followed by Michael Bennett within the first 30 minutes;  Tom Steyer tossed in the towel then pulled it back, why?  No one knows…Elsewhere, the death toll from the Chinese Virus in communist China has hit 1,000 fatalities what with 103 in a single day in Hubei Province.  A year later, this will be NOTHING…
  63. 2021 Thursday: DAY 23 OF THE BIDEN REGIME. Volkswagen is going to team up with Microsoft to create the necessary software with which to create self-driving cars.   Speaking of automobile issues, Texas authorities are cleaning up a massive pileup of cars and trucks on an icy stretch of the highway.  The pileup occurred near Fort Worth, Texas.  Elsewhere, Best Buy announces it’s going to lay off an undisclosed number of its employees in brick-and-mortar stores due to the Chi-Com Virus having driven business more online than in person.  Meanwhile, 793,000 Americans file for initial jobless benefits, down 19,000 from the week before.  Still not good, however.  Finally, thanks to the people behind Joe Biden, gas prices have gone up 18-percent as the War on Domestic Energy Production gets underway.  Thank you, “Chi-Com Joe.”
  64. 2021 Thursday A: Impeach #45 II continues in the U.S. Senate. It appears that Democrats prosecuting the FORMER president believe that if they continue hammering the same points over and over and over and over that somehow, it is going to drive an increasing number of inattentive GOP senators to vote to convict.  Not so.  Chef Lilah said in her Twitter feed today that Congressman Jamie Raskin’s own daddy avoided doing a stretch in federal prison over his collusion with Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers back in the 1970s.  She guesses what was good for daddy is not good for President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, Trump adviser Jason Miller shares his confidence that Trump’s attorneys can dismantle the Democrats’ BS arguments with ease.   In the same vein, Senator Lindsey Graham says he believes more GOP senators are going to vote to acquit after hearing the sobbing testimony of Democrat prosecutors such as mob boss David Cicilline, the blubbering Jamie Raskin, and that POS of fecal matter, Teddy Lieu.  Add to that the Chi-Com spy Eric Swalwell and one can see the rogue’s gallery of dimwits on display.  Doesn’t say much about the people who elect these bedbugs to office now does it.
  65. 2021 Thursday B: In Portland, Oregon, local cops say they were successful in driving away the left-wing Antifa and BLM mobs from burning down their very own police union headquarters. Elsewhere, Fox News Channel files suit to dismiss the bogus lawsuit launched against the network by the election-stealing software company (allegedly) Smartmatic.  We expect it to be successful and that Smartmatic will lose.  Meanwhile, Telegram becomes the most popular downloaded social media app.  Next, a $4.5 million lawsuit has just dropped on the head of Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey.  Owners of the Town Talk Diner and Gastro Pub in Minneapolis filed suit after mobs attacked their business night after night and burned it down during the summertime riots in which, Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs targeted their business and NO Minneapolis Police Department officers ever showed up to protect it.  We expect loads more lawsuits are going to drop atop these left-wing mayors and governors.  Finally, the New York Stock Exchange announces that if Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s tax plan goes into effect, they will be leaving the Empire State.  Good for you!
  66. 2021 Thursday C: It appears that Cancel Culture is trying to erase Western Tradition so that it can supplant it with Marxism. We won’t allow that to happen.  Elsewhere, a recent study into the reporting of statistics related the Chinese Virus are entirely wrong.  The study suggests that the fatality numbers connected to the Beijing Bug include BOTH those who died FROM the virus and those who died WITH the virus.  If statistics were honest, the numbers would fall from the nearly 2,400,000 deaths to a true figure of 35,000 deaths.  However, since the virus serves left-wing political purposes, the numbers are inflated and remain inflated.    Meanwhile, federal health authorities are warning medical workers to be on the lookout for ersatz N-95 masks.  Finally, Tokyo Olympics boss Yoshiro Mori finds himself forced to resign over a comment he made in which, he said, ‘women talk too much.’  Gee, no one can exercise an opinion anymore.  Wah, wah, wah!
  67. 2021 Thursday D: Tom Fitton shares information numerous Chi-Com-loving professors in the United States are receiving funding for various research projects and then transferring both the research and American tax dollars back to the communists in Beijing. Under the Trump administration, many of these Chi-Com sleepers were rooted and booted whereas now, under the ‘Joe Biden administration,’ Chi-Coms ain’t going nowhere.  Speaking of this, a mumbling Joe Biden now admits that yes indeed, the Chinese ARE going to eat our lunches.’  Add to that the fact that since the teachers unions have bullied Chi-Com Joe, the Biden administration is now going to rely on whatever the CDC says about whether schools can reopen or not.  NOT GOOD, Joe, people are becoming angrier by the moment.  Elsewhere, illegal alien border crossings into the U.S. are more than double one year ago.  We keep saying, “Lay in minefields!” 
  68. 2021 Thursday H: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 107,458,667 confirmed cases, +291,882, 2,357,475, confirmed deaths, +9,054, and 60,136,468 confirmed recoveries, +228,082. Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,539,217 confirmed cases, up 53,415 from yesterday’s reporting, 473,223 confirmed deaths, DOWN 811 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE- in the White House 22 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 143,828 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  69. 2021 Thursday 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: 3,449,934 confirmed cases, 45,456 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,584 confirmed cases, 423 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 328,264 confirmed cases, 4,675 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Tennessee: currently, they have 752,033 confirmed cases, 10,812 confirmed deaths, and 716,136 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 709,729 confirmed cases, 5,257 confirmed deaths, and 635,960 confirmed recoveries.    For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Italy: currently, they have 2,668,266 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 92,338 confirmed deaths, and 2,165,817 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  Either that or he’s too stupid to be governor, perhaps his lower IQ brother Chris could do the job?
  70. 2021 Thursday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,430.70, DOWN 7.10 points (-0.023%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,025.77, UP 53.24 points (+0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,916.38, UP 6.50 points (+0.17%).  The price of GOLD is $1,826.70 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.05 per troy ounce, -0.00 (-0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,243.00 per troy oz, -4.00 (-0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $3.78 per pound, +0.01 (+0.23%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,353.50 per troy oz, +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $57.95 per barrel, -0.29 (-0.50%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 1,400.00 Myanmar Kyat.
  71. 2021 Thursday K: After the Biden administration suggested something that extremely sounds Stalinist, namely prohibiting travel to Florida because Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, won’t kotow to the new oppressive administration. Governor DeSantis says it’s a load of crap seeing as how the Biden administration could give a hoot about hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens flooding the country whom NO one is monitoring for the Chinese Virus. Florida has remained open from the earliest days of the Wuhan Flu and its cases are not as bad as say, California and New York.  Still, Bill Gates and Dr. Tony “Three Masks and Googles” Fauci are conspiring to find ways to topple DeSantis at best or to force him in line at worst.   Look for other Stalinist measures to follow suit.  Meanwhile, Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene introduces a bill with which to prohibit federal funds being used for gun control measures.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album on June 23, 2015, the critically acclaimed “Still.”  Once a guitar warrior, always a guitar warrior, Thompson knows how to crank ‘em out and this one is as good as it gets.  There is a ‘slim version’ and a ‘deluxe version,’ which is why we encourage everyone to get the deluxe as who does not enjoy additional tunes, right?  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but his current band consisting of Taras Prodaniuk (bass and vocals), Michael Jerome (drums and vocals), Jim Elkington (guitars, piano), Jeff Tweedy (numerous instruments, and vocals), and several others- including three backing vocalists- to round out the sound.  Fans love this album just as we do which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whatever other site you do for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did, of that, we are certain.  Enjoy.

[i] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

[ii] Not sure if we will ever get to the music of Whitney Houston but one day, we sure as heck hope that we do.

[iii] We are not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary Dave Clark Five but we hope to do so sometime within the next 4-5 years.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
