  82. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– In a major embarrassment for the American people, our pathetic strumpet of a vice president, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, has been in charge of the ongoing border disaster for 388 days.  Worse than that, this pole-climbing bag of bulls**t has not shown up to do her job in 302 days.  Absolutely disgusting.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens since New Year’s Day 2022 is $732,695,495.  Next, the cost of caring for the Biblical deluge of illegal aliens since senile Joe and “Kooky” assumed office is $42,478,501,238.  The conservative low estimate of illegal alien invaders who have swarmed across the border since the first day of the year is 1,170,603.  Shocking and simply unsustainable.  The conservative LOW-LOW-LOW estimate of illegal aliens devouring resources meant for the American people is 46,602,260.  We believe the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million but given the way things are going, it could soon be 100-130 million which is even worse.  Round ‘em up, load ‘em aboard every available means of transport and get them the f**k out of the country.  NOW.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

110. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2022

When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately. Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico. The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals. What a day that will be.

  69. 2016 Wednesday: The great rocker, Prince[vi], died at age 57 due to flu-like symptoms but which, turned out to be a drug overdose on this date.   Meanwhile, after public consultation, it is determined that freedom fighter and former slave Harriet Tubman will replace President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.  Why not create a new bill, the $25 note, that way Jackson could keep his place and Ms. Tubman would have the distinction of appearing on a brand-new bill which is many ways would be a terrific addition to U.S. greenbacks.
  70. 2017 Thursday: In Paris, a police van transporting criminals along the Champs Elysees suffers an attack by jihadists killing police officer and injuring two others.   Elsewhere, Australia beefs up its qualifications for one to become a citizen in their country by amending laws to demand stricter knowledge of the English language as well as a desire to become Australian and not remain some foreign-born piece of pond scum.  Wouldn’t it be great if the United States would do this?
  71. 2018 Friday: A federal court in Mexico declares sale of the controversial Barbie doll depicting artist, Frida Kahlo, cannot occur.  Not sure as to what the reasoning behind this is but folks, it is what it is.    Meanwhile, in the race for 2020, Senators Ron Johnson, R-WI, and “Little Bob” Corker, RINO-TN, opt NOT to endorse President Trump in the race for a second term.  Question is, “WHY?”  However, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that he will endorse President Trump for a second term.
  72. 2019 Saturday: Even though the Trump administration is going after ISIS, they still manage to cause damage and in Syria, over the past couple of days they have managed to kill at least 50 Syrian army soldiers and wound numerous others.  Doesn’t say much about the training given them by Russia or Iran.  Meanwhile, much to the dismay of the far-left liberals, the Mueller Report says, “NO Trump-Russia collusion but the possibility of obstruction still exists.’  Elsewhere, Central American illegal aliens trying to get into the United States are saying the Mexicans are abusing them as they hover around the southern border of their country and the United States.’
  73. 2020 Monday: The world continues suffering under the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis that is spreading around the world.  Today, we have 2,458,150 confirmed cases of the disease what with 168,906 confirmed deaths and 643,918 confirmed recoveries.   The Chinese claim 88,423 confirmed cases with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, the United States sees 789,439 confirmed cases what with 42,186 confirmed deaths, and 71,675 confirmed recoveries as of mid-day.  It is interesting to note that China’s figures change little from day to day which suggests they are either lying to the rest of the world or possess the cure which says a lot about communist governments.
  74. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 141,813,257 confirmed cases, +399,077, 3,027,182  confirmed deaths, +7,522, and 81,116,141 confirmed recoveries, +327,427.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,976,092 confirmed cases, UP 108,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 573,551 confirmed deaths, UP 924, and 119,041,372 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.[vii] 
  75. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 248,829 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Meanwhile, a new study suggests that the ‘VID can affect the lungs via the gums.  Elsewhere, the European Union announces it will restart receiving shipments of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine despite reports of RARE BLOOD CLOTS afflicting some recipients of the vaccine.
  76. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,720,794 confirmed cases, 61,006 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,178,783 confirmed cases, 34,533 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,779 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 388,842 confirmed cases, 5,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kansas, the home of the conservative Midwest: they have 308,518 confirmed cases, 5,005 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  77. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,309 confirmed cases, 6,342 confirmed deaths, and 828,761 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Kuwait, the supposed missing province of Iraq: 258,497 cases of the virus, 1,456 confirmed deaths and 241,696 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    
  78. 2021 Tuesday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,821.30, DOWN 256.33 points (-0.75%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,786.27, DOWN 128.50 points (-0.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,134.94, DOWN 28.32 points (-0.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.42 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,779.20 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.88 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,189.50 per troy oz, -6.80 (-0.57%) while the price of COPPER is $4.20 per pound, -0.01 (-0.21%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,761.73 per troy oz, -49.92 (-1.78%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.72%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.98.     In Icelandic Krona, one greenback equals 125.91 and in Indian Rupee, a buck equals 75.38.[xiii]   
  79. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.974 per gallon, $2.818 in Florida, $3.749 in Hawaii, and $3.385 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.611.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,193,749,804,750 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.  In other business news, Netflix fails to meet paid subscriber predictions which leads to a subsequent fall in its shares.
  80. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News– Stammering Joe Biden says he ‘hopes the jury in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin reaches the right verdict.’   Next, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob “The Jerk” Frey says, “No matter the verdict, George Floyd died at the hands of the police.”  (Note- the police are under HIS control).   We were wrong: Judge Peter A. Cahill reads the verdicts and Officer Derek Chauvin is convicted on ALL charges.  Officer Chauvin stands to face 40 years in the slammer although esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz believes that Maxine “Prune Face” Waters did enough to cause a mistrial (see below).  In an interesting aside, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, gave a schizophrenic statement thanking ‘George Floyd for dying, for calling out to his mother on camera’ so the Dems could utilize his untimely demise to benefit the ongoing attempt to transform our country into a socialist s**t-hole.
  81. 2021 Tuesday G: Social Media And Big Tech– The United Kingdom is considering launching their own digital currency, the so-called “Britcoin.”  Next, Facebook is developing new audio products, products with which we suspect they will listen in on their users’ conversations.  Elsewhere, Apple is going to permit Parler to be offered in its App Store.  Big flipping deal.  Speaking of Apple, they are going to reveal new products today in a virtual store.
  82. 2021 Tuesday H: RINO News– Not to be outdone by former House Speaker John “Too Much Flipping Tanning Booth” Boehner, former President George W. Bush has to chime in and add his two cents on the modern GOP.  He says the Republican Party is ‘isolationist, protectionist, and nativist,’ lamenting the fact that he failed to get ‘comprehensive immigration reform taken care of when HE was president.’  Sadly, Republicans knew what he and the RINO wing of the GOP meant when they talked about ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ meant amnesty for millions with a pathway to citizenship for all.’  We did not want that then, George, and we don’t want it now and if you want to make sure the Bush Family name remains toxic, continue talking, George.  Voting for another Bush would mean legalizing the illegal and another justice like the loser chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts.   IF Jeb were to run again, yikes, NO MORE BUSHES!
  83. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic-Socialist News– A new poll says that a large majority of the American people are concerned with the fact that Joe Biden appears to be a slobbering idiot much of the time.  We are concerned, too.   Speaking of Joe Biden, a Missouri college student is suing the Biden administration allowing trannys, i.e., chicks with dicks, into female-only college dorms.   Next, Michigan’s GOP announced they had discovered that Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer AND her staff took a secret vacation to Florida while demanding everyone else remain indoors wearing 4-5 masks.   Elsewhere, a new poll demonstrates that white liberals typically have far more mental problems than do everyone else.  We agree with that study.  Meanwhile, as criticism continues rolling in blasting Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, she dismisses it as ‘nothing’ even though she did the same thing that supposedly got President Donald J. Trump impeached a second time.   (Interesting note- “Prune Face” Waters sought a police escort when she landed in Minneapolis to the protest scene so she could stir the pot without having to fear for her safety.  Wow).  Speaking of “Prune Face,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pushing a bill to censure the decrepit old rabble rouser and to remove her from her committee assignments.  Go for it.  (Note- the Democrats blocked this move).
  84. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump says he is considering a run for the White House in 2024.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘Joe Biden turned his back on the people of his state by going after coalminers when 43-percent of the world’s energy is derived from coal.’  This is true, the United States is the ‘Saudi Arabia of coal’ what with the best here such as anthracite and bituminous coal beneath our feet.   Moving on, Senator Marsha Blackburn says that asking for Voter ID is NOT racist.  We agree.  One needs ID for everything else including welfare checks, liquor, and pot purchases, picking up tickets, buying cigarettes, boarding airplanes- unless one is an illegal alien- you name it, you must show ID so WTF?[xvi] 
  85. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Officials in Indiana reveal that laws regarding firearms in their state would have done NOTHING to have stopped the mass shooting at the FedEx facility a week or so ago.  Next, in Arizona, students can now attend school in person and without having to wear face masks.  However, when the state’s mask mandate ends in May, Oregon is considering passing a law that will require faces masks on everyone forever.  That is correct- FOREVER.  Crazy flipping left-wing socialists.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to reinstate the travel ban that protected the nation so well from the Chi-Vi pandemic.   Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, Ohio GOP lawmakers want to rename a state park for the 45th president.   Speaking of befuddled old Joe Biden, he backs a bill to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state.  People, just return the land to Maryland.  Enough!
  86. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News III– The U.S. ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, is coming home for consultations after Joe Biden continues slandering Vladimir Putin.  Speaking of Mr. Putin and Russia, the word from Moscow is ‘IF Joe Biden wants a summit with Mr. Putin, it will depend on U.S. actions.’   Elsewhere, in Florida, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signs a bill that will allow the state to tax $1 billion in online purchases.   Next, North Carolina won’t pass a bill banning youth tranny procedures.  NOT right.  Wait until you’re 18 and then if you wish to destroy your body, it’s ON YOU.   Meanwhile, Willie Nelson is encouraging Joe Biden to make the ‘pot holiday’ an official one.   Finally, like Gary Gilmore in Utah back in 1977, a death row inmate in Nevada, Zane Michael Floyd, wants the option of being executed via firing squad.   Finally, Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti, NOT TO BE OUTDONE BY FELLOW LEFTISTS, is proposing a universal basic income (that ONLY minorities will receive).
  87. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News IV– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that “WOKE” companies will feel a backlash in the aftermath of Major League Baseball withdrawing the All-Star Game and MLB Draft from the Peach State.  Meanwhile, a recent poll says that less than one-third of Americans are aware of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Joe Biden-Russia-Chi-Com connection.
  88. 2021 Tuesday N: Foreign News / Overseas News– Chi-Com President Xi Jinping gives a thinly veiled warning to Joe Biden not to pursue a path of unilateralism.  Meanwhile, General Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, says that ‘pulling out of Afghanistan will make the War on Terror that much more difficult to prosecute.’   Elsewhere, Bill Gates and loads of world leaders will attend the ‘Biden climate summit.’  This should be fun to watch.  Next, Russia’s defense minister says, ‘U.S. actions in the Black Sea are becoming increasingly provocative.’  We would advise Joe Biden not to send U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea as whatever senile old Joe sends would NOT be able to withstand a concerted Russian attack nor might Turkey allow the vessels to pass back through the Dardanelles to the Mediterranean.  It could be a real cluster-f**k.  Finally, Admiral Charles Richard, head of U.S. Strategic Command, issues a dire warning to the administration: the Chi-Coms and the Russians are modernizing their nuclear forces much faster than anything the United States is doing.  Sadly, WOKE issues for the Democrats are much more important than defending the nation.[xvii]
  89. 2021 Tuesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1652 with a $257 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 06, 23, 43, 49, 52, and Mega 05.  Out of 166,921 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,806,354.  The winning ticket was sold at the Richmond New May Wah Supermarket in San Francisco, CA 94118.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 567,674 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 202,919 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 455 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  92. 2022 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,162,004 confirmed cases, 89,844 confirmed deaths, and 8,931,498 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,935,813 confirmed cases, 73,759 confirmed deaths, and 5,805,626 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 237,950 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,477,863 confirmed cases, 12,626 confirmed deaths, and 1,438,605 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Puerto Rico: they have 499,539 confirmed cases, 4,188 confirmed deaths, and 473,564 confirmed recoveries.[xx]

  95. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.696 per gallon, $4.106 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.682 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Louisiana- $3.869.  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 22nd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.348 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,397,730,855,439 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  96. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– It’s Day No. 56 in the Russo-Ukrainian War with no end in sight.  Germany says that by the end of the year, there will be no more oil coming into their country from Russia nor will there be any natural gas shortly after that.  They must know that President Donald J. Trump is returning soon, and that oil and natural gas will be flowing from the United States once again.
  97. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our glorious Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 383 days.  Worse, she has not shown up to do the job in 297 days.  By our count, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris regime’s illegal aliens since January 01, 2022, is $700,740,760.  Next, since the duo took their oaths to defend the country and its Constitution, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders is $42,446,546,503.  Since the first day of the year, we contend 1,119,308 illegal alien invaders have arrived in the country while the conservative low estimate of illegals believed to be in the country is 46,550,965.  We believe the truer number is between 85-to-125 million illegals which is an intolerable amount.  Good news: the 7th bus of illegals arrived in the nation’s capital today.  Dump ‘em out on the White House lawn.  Put them to work. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  103. 2022 Wednesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new poll of U.S. military veterans says the majority of them believe that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark A. Milley is BAD for morale.  Speaking of someone else BAD for the nation’s morale, Joe Biden sees only 26-percent approval among Hispanic voters.  This is not good for the regime.   Next, Joe Biden- well, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain or perhaps the Easter bunny- is demoting Acting ATF Director Marvin Richardson and bringing in U.S. Attorney Gary Restaino from Arizona to run the ship while his new nominee, former Ohio U.S. Attorney Steve Dettlebach tries to make it through confirmation in the U.S. Senate.
  104. 2022 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News II– In yet another sell-out by the Biden regime, the Bidenistas are canceling nuclear sea-launched cruise missile known as the SLCM-N, and the B83 gravity nuclear bombs designed.  It would appear that the administration is doing what Joe Biden and the Democrats always accused President Donald J. Trump- the legitimate president- of doing, being a stooge for the Russians.  Joe Biden and the Democrats surrounding him are the TRUE stooges of not just the Russians but of the Chi-Coms.   Twenty-fifth Amendment anyone?
  105. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News III– Supposedly, ‘Joe Biden’ held a confab with his top military generals today as events in Ukraine continue going from bad to worse.  Eastern European leaders however are journeying to Kyiv to walk the streets with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.   However, U.S. cybersecurity agencies and foreign allies are warning of massive Russian cyberattacks coming our way.  Oh, perish the thought.
  106. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News IV– The Centers for Disease Control have asked the Biden regime to ask the Department of Justice to appeal the federal judge’s slap-down of mask mandates on air travel.  Dutifully, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that he is going to contest the ruling, spending millions of taxpayer dollars with which to overturn an extremely popular ruling with the American people.  They just keep striking out on one issue after another that could help Democrats win in the fall.
  107. 2022 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th district, says that the Centers for Disease Control NEVER provided reasons for keeping masks on air travel.   Next, a new poll says that President Donald J. Trump holds an insurmountable lead over his closest possible Republican contenders in 2024 and a massive-massive-massive lead over losers such as Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, and U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell who would never run anyway.  His time in GOP politics is coming to an end within his next election cycle.  He’s going the way of Di-Fi.
  108. 2022 Wednesday R: Political News II- The Senate Majority PAC- a Democrat fund-raising monster- is rolling out a massive ad blitz to support crumbling Senator Tammy Baldwin, DS-WI, who is among many at risk of losing their seats in November.  The Democrats are rolling out massive ad campaigns across the fruited plain with which- or so they hope- to maintain some hope of holding a majority.  They stand better chance of dumping illegals in all 50 states and giving them the right to vote with 30-day residency which is why the GOP must go out NOW and begin recruiting the illegals to register GOP.  NOW.
  109. 2022 Wednesday S: U.S. Military News– In Ohio, the first ever Courts Martial of a U.S. Air Force Major General William Cooley is underway as jury selection commences.  The general is accused of forcibly groping and kissing a subordinate.  At least it’s not for refusing to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.
  110. 2022 Wednesday T: Big Tech News– Big Tech strikes again: Google takes down Hong Kong leadership contender John Lee’s YouTube account.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis- fresh from leading his state forward in the battle to force Disney to return to being at least, a neutral company, and at best, the American company that it once was is going after yet another WOKE target: Twitter.  The Sunshine State is threatening Twitter’s board of directors with a lawsuit over its rejection of Elon Musk’s buyout offer.  How can they do this, you ask?  Well, not considering an offer that would enrich ALL shareholders is a rejection of their fiduciary obligation to their shareholders and for this, the worthless company can be sued in court.   It is interesting to note that Governor DeSantis holds Twitter stock.  Not good for Twitter.
  111. 2022 Wednesday U: Big Tech News II– Another Big Tech icon sputtering into the wastebin of history like video shops is Netflix.  Having lost more than 200,000-plus users in recent months, shares of the online ‘video shop’ have fallen 23-percent.  Once Netflix went all WOKE, they, too, lost their allure, paying the Obamas hundreds of millions of dollars for some of the crappiest ‘entertainment’ on the Net.  How sad.  Meanwhile, it appears that CNN+ is doomed to circle the crapper, too.  Don’t these flipping liberals ever learn the hard lessons?  The American people are middle-right and don’t want all this WOKE CRAP.
  112. 2022 Wednesday V: Popular Culture News– Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania, by an 8-1 vote shot down an attempt by some sick f**ks to establish an afterschool Satan club.  These evil clubs operate in four other places around the country, opening a door to things better left alone by enticing young people that it’s all just, good clean fun.  Bullshit.  You know, you can tell when a culture is in its decline.  Here is how: (1) constant political strife bordering or leading to civil war.  (2) open borders and an inability to do what’s necessary to stop barbarians from flowing across it- namely, use of force to stop the invasion.  (3) loss of common culture, language, belief in God (4) embracing all things perverse such as homosexuality, perversion, chicks with dicks, mentally ill believing they are something they are biologically incapable of being (5) the acceptance of dark ‘religious faiths’ such as satanism, abortion on demand, the eradication of the sick, the infirm, the mentally challenged (6) the corruption, i.e., the sexualization of children, minors, and sexual abuse (7) rampant crime, especially violent crime, loss of law and order, abrogation of government’s duty to protect its citizenry from thugs and criminals (8) constant wars for no apparent reason, the worrying of foreign events over domestic events, the worrying about noncitizens over citizens, i.e., the replacement theory, which is indeed FACT, NOT THEORY.  Each of these things is bad enough but combined together and it’s the End of Times.  We have a leader who should be in the old folks’ home, and we are well on our way to the end of the line for the United States.
  113. 2022 Wednesday W: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3657 what with a $35 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 29, 36, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 111,308 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,284 apiece.   One ticket was sold at Bob’s Liquors in Redding, CA 96002 while the other was sold at Neighbors’ Market and Spirits in Galt, CA 95632.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #978 with a jackpot of $370 million up for grabs: 20, 30, 45, 55, 56, and Power 14.  Out of 94,565 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,235 apiece.

[i] We look forward to presenting the music of Grand Funk Railroad sometime in the late 2020s.

[ii] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

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

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

[v] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] At some point in the distant future, we hope to do the music of the famed rocker, Prince.  Be sure to remain aware for the day that we do.

[xvi] When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately.  Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico.   The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals.  What a day that will be.

[xvii] We have predicted since ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election that it would not surprise any of us if the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the North Koreans, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, the Cubans, and all the Third World countries in the orbit of Beijing were to act in concert against the U.S. and her interests.  What better opportunity would they have?  Unless President Donald Trump reenters the White House, we are sitting ducks.

103. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13, 2022

Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing. We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing.

  59. 2013 Saturday: The United States and the People’s Republic of China agree to work together to prohibit nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula.  But as was the norm during the ‘Age of Obama,’ Obama did not follow up and the communist Chinese never kept their word.   And people would ask WHY Donald Trump won the White House in 2016.
  60. 2014 Sunday: American golfer Bubba Watson wins the Masters’ Tournament a second year in a row.  Meanwhile, a white supremacist, Frazier Glenn Miller, shot to death three people in suburban Kansas City; he allegedly was targeting Jews but the people the POS shot were NOT Jews.  Elsewhere, Manny Pacquiao beats Tommy Bradley to regain his WBO welterweight title.   Meanwhile, in eastern Ukraine, ‘pro-Russian separatists’ are protesting the Ukrainian government, claiming they belong to the Russian motherland.  Obama, help the Ukrainians.
  61. 2015 Monday: The jihadi republic of Iran announces it has struck a deal with Vladimir Putin’s Russia for an S-300 air defense system.  Even though the system will not violate UN sanctions, other nations involved in the Iranian nuclear deal express alarm over the purchase.  It is as if the Iranians want to make sure no one can attack them even if the deal should collapse.  What a deal—it is the worst thing Barack Hussein Obama ever agreed to.  Elsewhere, a migrant ship carrying 550, plying the waters off the Libyan coast, goes down with the deaths of at least 400 of the passengers.
  62. 2016 Wednesday: As Russian ‘separatists’ continue running amok in the eastern Ukraine, Kiev reports that at least 8 of its soldiers have been wounded in fighting.  They want to know when President Barack Hussein Obama is going to send them something more than blankets (probably the foil kind provided to illegal aliens) and MREs.  They want ammo, offensive weapons, and cash help.  Where the hell is it?
  63. 2017 Thursday: Famed radio late night talk show host, Art Bell, founder of the Coast-to-Coast radio show that came on late at night, died at age 72 in his home in Pahrump, Nevada.  The day he died on was Friday the 13th.  Elsewhere, U.S., British, and French warplanes and missiles attacked Syrian chemical weapons sites across the country as an answer to an unprovoked chemical weapons attack on civilians in Douma, Syria, a suburb outside Damascus, a week earlier.
  64. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump announced that the United States, France, and Britain had carried out joint airstrikes in Syria meant to punish President Bashar al-Assad for his alleged use of chemical weapons; no one knows to this day whether he authorized use of the WMDs or not, yet we blasted Syria with numerous strikes.   Meanwhile, violent protests continue along the border between Israel and Gaza as Palestinian extremists continue trying to cause trouble for Israel.  This leads to more IEDs being set off with Israeli retaliatory strikes against the jihadists.                                                             
  65. 2019 Saturday: When the San Antonio Spurs beat the Denver Nuggets by a final score of 101-96 in the Western Conference Playoffs, Coach Gregg Popovich moves past Lenny Wilkens to become the all-time winningest coach as he notches his 1,413th win.  Congratulations, coach!   In Libya, the rebel government based in Tobruk announces that despite what the international community is demanding they do, they are going to continue their steamrolling advance toward Benghazi.  Can there be no peace in the region?

  68. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: SINCE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 240,982 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   Dr. Scott Gottlieb takes the ‘Biden administration’ to task for NOT surging vaccines and resources into coronavirus hotspots but to continue doling vaccines out based on population numbers. 
  69. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,704,605 confirmed cases, 60,465 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,134,906 confirmed cases, 34,119 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,113 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 380,554 confirmed cases, 5,380 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Maryland, the home of one of the BIGGEST pro-Confederate States of America during the Civil War: they have 429,730 confirmed cases, 8,484 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[ix] 
  70. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,261 confirmed cases, 6,304 confirmed deaths, and 826,694 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country, Croatia- one of the lesser Axis allies during the Second World War: 294,874 cases of the virus, 6,358 confirmed deaths and 276,420 confirmed recoveries.[x]    In other COVID-19 news, the federal government is calling for a halt to delivery of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to blood clots occurring in six people out of several million immunized by it.   Next, Centers for Disease Control director Dr. Rochelle Walensky is telling Michigan they had better shut everything down NOW or risk another major outbreak of the ‘VID.  However, the Michigan GOP blasts back at the CDC- ‘shut up and send more vaccines.’  (Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is clinging to her dictatorial powers for as long as she can).
  71. 2021 Tuesday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,677.27, DOWN 68.13 points (-0.20%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,996.10, UP 146.10 points (+1.05%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,141.59, UP 13.60 points (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.45 per barrel, +0.27 (+0.45%).  The price of GOLD is $1,746.20 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $25.41 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,159.20 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.18%) while the price of COPPER is $4.04 per pound, +0.01 (+0.19%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,692.44 per troy oz, +16.72 (+0.62%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,500.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-1.72%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000016.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.08.     In Estonian kroon, one greenback equals 13.9470 and in Ethiopian Birr, a buck equals 41.58.[xiv]  
  72. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.936 per gallon, $2.842 in Florida, $3.736 in Hawaii, and $3.337 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.707.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,166,765,942,074 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  Speaking of the National Debt, the GOP is demanding for a trimmed down, i.e., clean, bill, not one full of all manner of extraneous things stuffed into it.  Only 6-percent of the proposed $2 trillion infrastructure bill goes toward roads and bridges.  Top economists worry that President President Joe Biden’s ongoing spending are going to crash the U.S. economy down the road.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS I– President Joe Biden’s proposed nominee for undersecretary for U.S. Department of Defense- Colin Kohl- is facing opposition.  At least 18 GOP senators are demanding an FBI background investigation into the former Obama administration official over his reputed leaking of classified info upon his departure.  Elsewhere, concerns are arising over the risk of a confrontation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia over President Joe Biden’s inept handling of the crisis in the Ukraine.  Next, President Biden says he plans to complete the troop pullout from Afghanistan by September 11, 2021.  This latter move is upsetting Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-S.C., who says that ‘pulling U.S. troops out of Afghanistan is like canceling our insurance policy against another 9-11-style terrorist attack from occurring here in the United States.’[xvii]
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS II– According to reports, President Joe Biden plans on keeping U.S. ambassador to Russia- John J. Sullivan, nominated by President Donald J. Trump- in place.   Meanwhile, a recent TIPP poll says that 68-percent of the American people believe a special counsel should be appointed to investigate the shady business and drug dealings of President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter.  In other President Biden news, when the 46th president ‘spoke’ with Russian President Vladimir Putin, he claimed he spoke about imprisoned Putin critic Alexei Navalny, but Russian exile Mikhail Khodorkovsky said that that is simply not the case.  Biden said NOTHING about Mr. Navalny who is being tortured by Putin’s thugs.[xviii]   Finally, President Biden plans to reach ‘white conservatives’ on COVID-19 vaccines by pandering to them via NASCAR, Country & Western Music, and through TV shows like “Deadliest Catch” and other shows.  Wow.  Pander, pander, pander.  Joe, we ain’t no ways stupid, sir, we don’t need you putting commercials on “Ice Road Truckers,” “Pawn Stars,” and “The Voice.”
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: POLITICAL NEWS I– Congressman Andrew Clyde, R-GA 9th congressional district, says that he is going to sue House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA, over her fining lawmakers $5,000 per offense of avoiding the metal detectors she has installed all over Fort Pelosi.  He says this is “BS.”  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin says the U.S. is going to reverse President Trump’s order to pull troops out of Germany and to redeploy them elsewhere.  They are going to stay put.  Meanwhile, YouTube (owned by POS Sundar Pichai and Google) has banned Dr. Sebastian Gorkha’s channel for supposedly violating their policies on the 2020 Presidential Election meaning, he has been telling the truth- the Democrats STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election.  Period.  Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, bi***es.   Finally, famed legal scholar Baylor University Chancellor Ken Starr told Newsmax TV that WOKE Cancel Culture is extremely hostile to organized religion.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– In the Mexican state of Guerrero, citizens are arming their children to combat the out-of-control drug cartels running amok along the border.   Next, Iran announces that it’s going to enrich uranium to 60-percent, its highest ever.  Now is the time for the Israelis to set off a nuclear chain reaction in all Iranian nuclear facilities.  Let’s blow these scumbags to meet with Mohammad.  NOW.  Elsewhere, we hear that masked men carrying sledgehammers burst into the Epoch Times’ headquarters in Hong Kong and began smashing up everything.  Xi Jinping’s thugs are at it again.  Speaking of the Chinese, Chris Salcedo on Newsmax said that the PRC is the Number 2 slaveholding state in the world, running a close race with India.  Finally, U.S. intelligence reports that North Korea may soon be conducting nuclear weapons tests once again (seeing as how old President Joe Biden is in the White House).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I–  Following the accidental shooting death of Duante Wright in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, all hell is breaking loose across the country.  Overnight, law enforcement in that city arrested at least 40-60 people for rioting, robbing, looting, arson, and rape.  In the aftermath of the shooting, both Brooklyn Center’s Police Chief Tim Gannon and Officer Kim Potter- under pressure to resign- have resigned.  At press time, the mayor of the city, Mike Elliott, fired the city manager, Curt Boganey, for disagreeing with him by saying Officer Potter deserved due process. 
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– In New York City, Black Lives Matter rabble close down the Manhattan Bridge.   SHOOT THEM.  Congresswoman Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, released a statement in which, she condemned all police as being racist, the system untenable, and that we must- as Karl Marx encouraged- tear everything down and rebuild it atop a socialist foundation.   (Someone, please strip this witch of her citizenship and deport her back to Gaza).  Her buddy, Congresswoman Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, tweeted ‘from slave patrols to traffic stops, there ain’t no fixing none of this so burn it all down y’all.’  Moving on, the prosecution in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has rested and the defense is up on Day 12.
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says, ‘IF Donald Trump runs in 2024, she won’t run for the presidency.”  (Good, Nikki, because the days of voting for the lesser of two evils is over and done.  Period.).   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, made mention of a Michael Vick voting ad, ‘it’s persuasive if you like murdering puppies.’   Elsewhere, Juul Labs is facing racketeering charges over deceptive advertising.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that New York’s tax laws no longer apply to him seeing as how he is no longer in the White House.  Moving on, the Suez Canal Authority has seized the Japanese-owned vessel, the “Ever-Given,” the one that clogged traffic on the canal for nearly two weeks.  They are demanding at least $900 million from the vessel’s owners which will cover the humongous salvage operations required to free the ship and to restart stalled canal traffic.  Negotiations continue.  Meanwhile, France is banning travelers from Brazil as the South American nation is being overrun by the Chi-Vi.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 564,821 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J.

  87. 2022 Wednesday F: Friends, we are rebuilding our brand to avoid our search results being hidden by Microsoft Bing.  We can only wonder what their problems are, and the most important thing is that if the GOP reclaims Congress in their fall, there must be some sort of accountability for Big Tech that they cannot cancel you without written reasons as well as an appellate process by which the canceled party can seek a fair and impartial hearing

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

While many of my colleagues know more about history than I do, I- like all of them- believe we are in a slow roll towards World War III. Everyone keeps saying that ‘Putin is on the way out,’ yet, they said the same thing about Bashar al-Assad- isn’t he still running the show in Damascus? Since 2009 onward? That guy ain’t going nowhere, nor is Putin anytime soon…

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 251

67. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 08, 2022, UPDATE A:

While many of my colleagues know more about history than I do, I- like all of them- believe we are in a slow roll towards World War III.  Everyone keeps saying that ‘Putin is on the way out,’ yet, they said the same thing about Bashar al-Assad- isn’t he still running the show in Damascus?  Since 2009 onward?  That guy ain’t going nowhere, nor is Putin anytime soon…

  1. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 449,930,522 confirmed cases, +2,230,390, 6,035,954 confirmed deaths, +9,214 and 383,900,644 confirmed recoveries, +2,467,644. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 81,012,955 confirmed cases, UP 32,978 from yesterday’s reporting, 987,615 confirmed deaths, UP +1,701,[i] and 55,215,670 confirmed recoveries, UP 204,070 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 537,994 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 174,939 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 412 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,017,191 confirmed cases, 10,322 confirmed deaths, and 8,930,314 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it-.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,864,228 confirmed cases, 71,326 confirmed deaths, and 5,792,902 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 237,518 confirmed cases, 1,354 confirmed deaths, and 236,164 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,432,321 confirmed cases, 12,076 confirmed deaths, and 1,420,245 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Grand Princess: they have 122 confirmed cases, 7 confirmed deaths, and 115 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,684,810 confirmed cases, 10,322 confirmed deaths, and 3,625,478 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Nicaragua, 173rd place on the list: 18,203 cases of the virus, 222 confirmed death and 4,225 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,632.64, DOWN 184.74 points (-0.56%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,795.55 DOWN 35.41 points (-0.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,170.70, DOWN 30.39 points (-0.72%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $125.73 per barrel, +6.33 (+5.30%).  The price of GOLD is $2,052.50 per troy oz., +56.60 (+2.84%) while the price of SILVER is $27.08 per troy ounce, +1.36 (+5.27%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,182.00 per troy oz, +65.40 (+5.86%) while the price of COPPER is $4.73 per pound, -0.01 (-0.13%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $3,256.50 per troy oz., +76.21 (+2.40%). The price of RHODIUM is $22,200.00 per troy oz., +800.00 (+3.74%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,470,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,590.00 per USD/T, -150.50 (-4.01%). The price of ZINC is $4,229.00 per USD/T., +116.50 (+2.83%).   The price of COCOA is $2,597.00 per USD/T, +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,366.40 USD 1,000 board feet -69.70 (-4.79%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.32 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 21.33, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 122.50 of theirs.    In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 13.83 and in Sierra Leonean Leone, a buck equals 11,517.70 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.36 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.444 per gallon, $4.150 in Florida, $4.718 in Hawaii, and $4.546 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: North Dakota- $3.811.  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 147th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Estonia: $8.008 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,305,192,819,433 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Belgium the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany.  This nation holds $75,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says the aid package to Ukraine will now be $14 billion.  Question: how much is Mitch going to receive as kickbacks for getting this ‘aid package’ to the Ukrainians?  A new Quinnipiac poll says that a vast majority of Americans agree with cutting off imports of Russian oil into the United States.   In other news, lolo Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, doubles down on urging someone in Russia to ‘assassinate President Putin.’  Wow.  Could someone here possibly do the same thing to one of ours?  I mean, once you go down this path of encouraging assassinations in other country, leaders in the other country might encourage the same thing here.  Can we stop with this stupid talk?
  8. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- The Pentagon continues singing this bogus tune that the Russians are facing supply chain issues in Ukraine supporting its troops.  While this might be somewhat possible, we don’t believe it.  It appears that the Russian steamroller is plowing along at a solid pace.  Elsewhere, in the United States, a coterie of U.S. senators are seeking to block the liquidation of Russian gold reserves.   Meanwhile, the United Nations says that more than 2 million Ukrainians have fled the beleaguered country since the Russian invasion commenced nearly two weeks ago.
  9. 2022 Tuesday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 340 days and sadly, it’s been 254 days since she showed up to do her job.  The cost of caring for the illegals since January 01, 2022, is now around $430,443,158.  The cost of caring for the illegals since Joe Biden became the 46th president is a whopping $42,708,115,221.  The number of illegals who have swarmed into the United States like cockroaches out of a hole in the ground is- in our estimate- 698,570- just since January 01, 2022.  Fourth and final,  the conservative estimate of illegal aliens raping our country is around 43,458,500.  We believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-125 million which is how we compute it.
  10. 2022 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- The U.S. Congress has reached an agreement by which to dump another $15 billion into COVID-19 relief funding.  Next, the White House says that Americans can now begin ordering their first or second COVID-19 tests, that they are finally available.  Sadly, the tests are manufactured in communist China which ain’t good.
  11. 2022 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- While mask and vaccine mandates are collapsing across the country, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that the ‘COVID cartel’ will never apologize for all the harm they have caused the American people through their cruel impositions of masks and vaccine passports.  Many educated people believe that younger school aged children have been deeply scarred through having to wear masks the past two years while kids of all ages have been set back in their studies thanks to educators’ unions keeping their students at home.
  12. 2022 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II- Senators Ron Johnson, R-WI, and Ted Cruz, R-TX, met with representatives of the truckers’ People’s Convoy that currently is circling Washington, D.C., on the Beltway.  The representatives all expressed the same thing: vaccines should be optional and based upon personal choice.  It’s funny how we Democrats (not me or my family) support Pro-Choice when it comes to murdering unborn babies but quite another when it comes to jabbing an experimental vaccine into one’s body.  Besides, as more information on the myriad side effects related to the vaccines continues coming to light, the less anyone wants to get them.   Our own Goldie McNamara can attest to the side effects.
  13. 2022 Tuesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $47.45 (2) AstraZeneca: $57.69 (3) Merck & Company: $76.95 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $168.75 (5) Novavax: $72.79 (6) BioNTech: $128.16 (7) Moderna: $129.28.
  14. 2022 Tuesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $94.84 (2) General Dynamics: $235.31 (3) Boeing: $173.66 (4) Lockheed Martin: $449.19 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $449.21.
  15. 2022 Tuesday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $24.89 (2) DuPont: $68.81 (3) Honeywell: $183.24 (4) 3M: $145.38 (5) Teijen: $1,268.00.
  16. 2022 Tuesday O: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $62.63 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $21.84 (3) Beyond Meat: $42.48.
  17. 2022 Tuesday P: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $138.69 (2) Lowe’s: $223.26 (3) Home Depot: $316.39 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $523.36 (5) Amazon: $2,720.29.
  18. 2022 Tuesday Q: Business News- McDonalds, Starbucks, and Coke put a halt on doing business inside Russia.  Proponents of this idea claim that it continues the further isolation of Russian President Vladimir Putin in particular and Russia in general, but didn’t the Obama-Biden administration say the same thing about Bashar al-Assad and Syria?  Last time I checked, Assad is still the president of Syria and is sending troops to fight in Ukraine alongside Russian troops.  As for the business boycotts, I believe Coca-Cola manufactures its products in Xinjiang Province so China will ship Coke to Russia from its own turf.  As for Starbucks and McDonalds, there are many competitors who will step in and do business with Moscow.
  19. 2022 Tuesday R: Joe Biden Regime News I- The Biden administration threatens Chinese companies doing business with Russia that they could be cut off from ‘U.S. equipment.’  Next, CIA Director William Burns says there’s ‘no discernable endgame for Vladimir Putin in Ukraine.’  They said the same thing about Bashar al-Assad.   Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki called Florida’s Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo a ‘politician’ for his first-in-the-nation recommendation AGAINST vaccinating children for COVID-19.
  20. 2022 Tuesday S: Joe Biden Regime News I- The Biden administration threatens Chinese companies doing business with Russia that they could be cut off from ‘U.S. equipment.’  Next, CIA Director William Burns says there’s ‘no discernable endgame for Vladimir Putin in Ukraine.’  They said the same thing about Bashar al-Assad.   Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki called Florida’s Surgeon General Joseph Ladapo a ‘politician’ for his first-in-the-nation recommendation AGAINST vaccinating children for COVID-19.  In other news far more embarrassing to the Biden administration, the leaders of both the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia declined to accept President Biden’s phone calls.
  21. 2022 Tuesday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- Members of the J6 committee are giddy today as the first defendant from the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021- riots many of my colleagues believe to have been a FALSE FLAG OPERATION sponsored by members of my party- was convicted on all five felony counts leveled against him by prosecutors.  Texas man, Guy Reffitt, was found guilty by a federal jury in under two hours of deliberation for his part in egging on others to storm the Capitol Building that fateful day.  He also was convicted on having threatened his teenaged children with harm if they turned him to the FBI which they ultimately did.  Mr. Reffitt faces up to 20 years in a federal prison in what was seen as a test case for the legions of others currently languishing in the D.C. gulags.  I suspect many of the other 200 or so defendants will also suffer conviction.
  22. 2022 Tuesday U: Political News I- Congressman Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, said today that Joe Biden is living an ‘unreal world’ when it comes to his claims regarding domestic oil production.   Next, former DNI Director Ric Grenell endorses Alex Gray for the U.S. Senate seat in the Sooner State.   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, has endorsed another 10 Republican women for Congress in November via her E-PAC.
  23. 2022 Tuesday V: Political News II- A new poll says that IF the United States were invaded as Ukraine has, a high number of Republicans would remain behind to fight the invaders whereas a larger number of Democrats would flee to safer environs.  Wow.  That is difficult to believe.  Meanwhile, Democratic-Socialists across the United States are blaming their nation as well as NATO for the war in Ukraine.  (Note- the United Nations has forbidden its staff from using the words, ‘invasion’ and ‘war’ when discussing the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the subsequent war in that Eastern European country).
  24. 2022 Tuesday W: U.S. Military News- The U.S. Department of Defense is appealing a lower court ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court that prohibits the DOD from keeping unvaccinated SEALS inactive.  The unvaccinated sailors want to be deployed alongside their vaccinated fellows and for some reason unbeknownst to anyone with half a brain or more, the DOD wants to ‘punish them’ by not deploying them.  Secretary Austin, the only one you are punishing is the fighting men-and-women of the United States and the American people.
  25. 2022 Tuesday X: Energy News- Joe Biden has announced a ban on imports of Russian oil and natural gas while simultaneously offering any idea as to how the United States will cover the shortfall.  Joe talks about getting oil from Iran, Venezuela, and from other areas around the globe inimical to the U.S. and for which it stands which means, prices in the U.S. are going to continue going UP.[xi]  The ‘Green Meanies’ won’t allow us to drill, refine, and ship our own and now that we are cutting off a major supplier albeit the right decision, the American people are going to suffer.  Badly.  Many believe this to be by design, one that will punish the American people by raising the costs of virtually everything while allowing our elected leaders to receive larger kickbacks to their back-pockets.   Former DNI Ric Grenell says that the United States ‘can be independent on issues of energy’ without harming the environment or the people.  He also asked a pertinent question: WHY are the environmentalists so opposed to America’s clean crude oil but totally silent on the importation of dirty oil from Russia, Iran, and Venezuela?  Good question, Mr. Grenell.  The answer is because they are full of crap, that’s why.
  26. 2022 Tuesday Y: Sports News I- Aaron Rodgers has signed a new four-year deal with the Green Bay Packers for $200 million.  Next, in a massive trade, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is going to Denver to play for the Broncos in exchange for a bunch of picks.  Sadly, the Seahawks should have terminated Coach Pete Carroll following his disastrous record starting with the team’s loss in their follow up Super Bowl, losing to the New England Patriots.  Sad.  Ah, well, we wish both Wilson and Rodgers well.
  27. 2022 Tuesday Z: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1744 what with a $126 million jackpot on the line: 07, 18, 38, 58, 64, and Mega 24.  Out of 69,743 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $19,039.

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

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

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

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

  96. 2021 Monday J: The GOP pushes the Biden administration to get an imprisoned U.S. Marine in Russia released and sent home.  Good luck with that, the Biden administration is as impotent as impotence can be.  In other fascinating news, Iran threatens to RAZE Tel Aviv if Israel should attack the ‘peace-loving Islamic Republic of Iran.’  We say, NUKE the hell out of Iran- give them something to suck on in the same way that President Ronald Reagan ordered the sinking of most of their pathetic navy back in the early 1980s.

  98. 2021 Monday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,599,900 confirmed cases, 54,271 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 445 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 347,422 confirmed cases, 5,108 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Oregon: currently, they have 157,481 confirmed cases, 2,304 confirmed deaths, BUT NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 805,116 confirmed cases, 5,917 confirmed deaths, and 758,541 confirmed recoveries. 
  99. 2021 Monday M: 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: 31,802.44, UP 306.14 points (+0.97%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,609.16, DOWN 310.99 points (-2.41%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,821.35, DOWN 20.59 points (-0.54%).  The price of GOLD is $1,682.30 per troy oz., +4.30 (+0.26%) while the price of SILVER is $25.26 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,144.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.72%) while the price of COPPER is $4.09 per pound, +0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,328.50 per troy oz, +6.50 (+0.28%) Same as yesterday.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.93 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.03%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.49.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 28.28.
  100. 2021 Monday N: Greg Kelly reports on Newsmax that Pepe Le Pew, the “Joe Biden of cartoon characters” because of all his hands-on the female character is now CANCELED, too. Meanwhile, the White House praises the courage of Megan Markle and the individual formerly known as “Prince Harry” for sobbing their story to Oprah Winfrey.  Folks, who the f**k cares?  Hopefully, Harry will recognize his mistake sooner while there is still time to repair the self-inflicted damage than later when the royal family will never welcome him back in.  Megan sobbed that the royals worried about the color of baby Archie.  Uh, again, who cares?  Oprah don’t act so flipping shocked, you has-been.  In other news, the family of Ashli Babbitt, slain at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, by a Capitol Hill police officer for still unknown reasons is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the department.   Next, Joe Biden grants temporary immigration status to Venezuelans who have fled their country for the U.S.  Finally, JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO GIVE A PRIME TIME ADDRESS THIS THURSDAY!  Glory, glory hallelujah, glory,  glory hallelujah, glory, glory hallelujah, the world is going to hear the mummy speak!  
  101. 2021 Monday O: On this spectacular 110th International Day of Women (except in crap-hole nations such as Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan), Burger King UK tweets out the following statement: “women belong in the kitchen.”  Ooops.  Must have been a joke. Speaking of jokes, the U.S. State Department has zipped its lips and won’t accuse the Chi-Coms of committing mass genocide against the Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Province.  The State Department is also tiptoeing around the fact that the Chi-Coms are not honoring their commitment to a half-century of incorporation of Hong Kong- former British crown colony- by seeking to corrupt their voting system so that it resembles the authoritarian system on the mainland.  FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Macao!  FREE Tibet!  FREE Mainland China!  NO MORE COMMUNISM! 
  102. 2021 Monday P: General Russell Honoré concludes his report into the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the good (left-wing) general announces that the Capitol Police Department must have greater authority in times of crisis.  Uh, okay.  Will the increased power allow us to demilitarize our nation’s capital?  Meanwhile, Georgia state lawmakers present a bill that will terminate NO-EXCUSE absentee voting.  The Democrats won’t like this.  Still, if state government won’t enforce the state’s voting laws, what difference does it make?   
  103. 2021 Monday Q: Two of Joe Biden’s picks for top posts in the U.S. Department of Justice promise to rain hell down upon the evildoers behind Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-instigated-and-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Lisa Monaco- nominated to be U.S. Deputy Attorney General and Vanita Gupta- nominated to be Associate Attorney General promise to go after and crush the people threatening our democracy.  Both proclaim to keep the U.S. Department of Justice nonpartisan while assumed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland says, ‘Donald Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud are bogus.’  Meanwhile, Joe Biden isn’t budging from his desire to keep the ‘filibuster in place’ even as the rest of his party seeks to overturn it and to ram through all their crazy leftist bull crap ideas.  In other news, liberals are rubbing their hands in glee having heard that an investigation into ‘citizen Donald Trump’ is underway to investigate his claims the 2020 Presidential Election were rigged.  The Democrats can’t let go.
  104. 2022 Tuesday: Day 412 of the Biden Administration- stick around and discover what sort of antics the Chi-Coms and their imposed stooges in the Biden administration are up to today.  It’s going to be good!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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


Tuesday, March 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

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

[iii] See previous.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  70. 2016 Monday: Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning announces his retirement from both the team and the NFL.  Meanwhile, the Pentagon says that U.S. airstrikes in Somalia have killed at least 150 jihadists roaming that godforsaken country.  They were in better shape during colonialism when the Italians controlled the area.  Speaking of the airstrikes, the Obama administration announces that it will release data on U.S. drone strikes around the world.  They didn’t call President Obama the “Droner-in-Chief” for nothing- the guy murdered thousands of people around the world.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

TODAY IN HISTORY, MONDAY MARCH 07, 2022, BLOG POST #4,474

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

Sunday, March 07, 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…


Monday, March 07, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

63. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 04, 2022, UPDATE A

Lindsey Graham wants Vladimir Putin ‘taken out by his people.’ Wow. It’s one thing to call for the death of an ISIS scumbag like Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi or the Quds Force commander but quite another thing to call for the death of the leader of a nuclear-armed country. Senator Graham is little more than a neocon, a paper tiger, and a punk. Shut up.

63. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 04, 2022, UPDATE A:

Lindsey Graham wants Vladimir Putin ‘taken out by his people.’  Wow.  It’s one thing to call for the death of an ISIS scumbag like Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi or the Quds Force commander but quite another thing to call for the death of the leader of a nuclear-armed country.  Senator Graham is little more than a neocon, a paper tiger, and a punk.  Shut up.

  1. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 444,029,251 confirmed cases, +2,244,657, 6,009,837 confirmed deaths, +9,322 and 376,679,833 confirmed recoveries, +1,950,237. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 80,895,651 confirmed cases, UP 78,254 from yesterday’s reporting, 983,486 confirmed deaths, UP +1,898,[i] and 54,344,934 confirmed recoveries, UP 327,950 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 533,865 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic.

  6. 2022 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.074 per gallon, $3.674 in Florida, $4.660 in Hawaii, and $4.220 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Missouri- $3.485.  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 143rd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Monaco: $7.441 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,296,510,611,095 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after South Korea the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Canada.  This nation holds $120,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- A new report suggests that the ‘Kremlin was surprised by Vladimir Putin’s invasion of neighboring Ukraine as well as by the subsequent harsh sanctions slapped atop them.’  Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, set off a firestorm last night when he called for a ‘Brutus,’ for a Klaus Von Stauffenberg to whack Vladimir Putin and thus halt the invasion as well as free the Russian people.  After being slammed by virtually everyone, the neocon senator walked back his provocative comments.  Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax says he’s in full agreement with Senator Graham and that the Russian thug should be whacked.’  Elsewhere, the attack on Ukraine’s massive nuclear power plant by Russian forces sets off new fears of a Chernobyl-style nuclear disaster across the world.
  8. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- Relatives claim that Russian soldiers murdered fleeing Ukrainian civilians.  Meanwhile, the U.S. embassy in Ukraine says that Vladimir Putin’s attack on the nuclear plant is indeed a ‘war crime.’  Next, over 1 million refugees have been said to have fled Ukraine in the advance of Russian attacks.  The International Criminal Court says it’s going to launch an investigation into possible Russian war crimes in Ukraine.
  9. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III- While covering the news in Ukraine, a Sky News journalist was wounded when Russian forces ambushed his team of journalists.  Speaking of news, Chi-Com-owned Global Times says that ‘Russia lacks the national strength with which to directly confront NATO.’  In other news, Kyiv reports that its President Volodymyr Zelensky has survived three assassination attempts in the past three days.  God bless you, Mr. President, we hope you stay safe.  (Note- a former spokesperson for Mr. Zelensky says that ’93-percent of the Ukrainian people support their commander-in-chief).
  10. 2022 Friday I: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis IV- NATO reports there will be NO establishing of a No-Fly Zone over Ukraine.  Meanwhile, fears of mass conscription across Russia is driving tens of thousands of military-aged males in Russia to seek asylum abroad.   Elsewhere, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have launched a fundraiser for Ukraine, matching $3 million with their own money.  (Note- Mila- when are you going to do another ‘Ted’ movie with Mark Walberg?)  Moving on, underground groups in the U.S. are funneling mercenaries and medics into Ukraine to combat the new ‘Red Army.’
  11. 2022 Friday J: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The U.S. Border Patrol says they are extremely skeptical of Joe Biden’s sudden desire to ‘defend the southern border.’  The border czar- Vice President Kamala Harris- has been in charge of the ongoing invasion for the past 336 days.  Sadly, it’s been 250 days since she arrived on the scene.  Tragic.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders the past 63 days is around $410,254,233.  Horrible, absolutely horrible.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders the past 428 days is an appalling $42,051,143,728.  Next, the number of illegals who have swarmed across the southern border since January 01, 2022, is- in our educated estimate- 656,913.  Each military division is around 60,000 men so that equals almost 11 divisions.  Talk about a Trojan horse.  Fourth and final, the estimated LOW number of illegals living in the country is around 43,416,843.  We, however, believe the numbers to be closer to double, if not treble that number.  Horrible.
  12. 2022 Friday K: Foreign News-Overseas News I- A new report says that German missiles making their way to Ukraine may already be obsolete.  Next, the BBC has announced it will no longer be reporting from Russia as other media outlets won’t what with Vladimir Putin’s new law prohibiting foreign media reporting Russian news.   The ban also includes Facebook and Twitter- and possibly other American social media companies- which has little Mark Zuckerberg pissed off and vowing that no matter what Putin says or does, he will get Facebook-Meta back up and running in the former Soviet Union.

  18. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I- The Biden regime has slapped new sanctions atop wealthy Russian oligarchs and their families.  Next, Biden Family mob mouthpiece Jen “Circle-Back” Psaki says the ‘Keystone XL Pipeline was NEVER operational.’  Say the f**k what?  Three portions of it were humming along while the rest could have been completed by now.  What the hell is it about these lying Democrat scumbags?  Ah, well, the White House claims that over the course of February, U.S. employers added 678,000 jobs- these are people returning to work.
  19. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announces it will provide temporary immigration relief to Ukrainians seeking to enter the country.  Next, for some reason unbeknownst to anyone other than the senile mind of drooling Joe Biden, the Biden regime is going to lift sanctions on various Iranian thugs, thugs who have carried out terror attacks on U.S. and allied governments.  What the hell is wrong with this dimwit?
  20. 2022 Friday S: Joe Biden Regime News III- The U.S. Treasury Department has announced sanctions on Russian media outlets.  RT- the Russian state-controlled news that appears on some American cable channels has closed down its operations in the United States thanks to the sanctions being slapped atop them.
  21. 2022 Friday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- This sham committee full of Trump-haters and other assorted losers has slapped a subpoena on Donald J. Trump Jr.’s fiancé Kimberly Guilfoyle.  They want to drag her in and beat her down in their insane push to prevent Donald Trump from winning the White House again which in our view now appears inevitable.  We hope that when he does that, he sends all of these scumbags to the North Slope in Alaska to atone for their crimes against the American people.
  22. 2022 Friday U: Political News I- Once again, another rat has appeared, taking cheap potshots at President Donald J. Trump: former Attorney General William “Bill” Barr.  He has sought to drive a dagger into his old boss with his new book, which is a shame.  President Trump said of his former AG that he’s ‘weak, ineffective, and scared.’  He sure disappointed the hell out of us.  Meanwhile, former Vice President Mike Pence says there’s ‘no room in the Republican Party for Putin apologists.’
  23. 2022 Friday V: Political News II- Congressman Pete Sessions, R-TX 17th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s fear’ (regarding the crackpot far left of his crumbling party) ‘is funding Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine’ because he won’t stop buying Russian oil and by ordering the resumption of domestic drilling, refining, and exporting U.S. oil and natural gas.  Next, Congressman Mike Turner, R-OH 10th congressional district, says there’s a ‘veto-proof support in the U.S. Congress for banning imports of Russian oil.’
  24. 2022 Friday W: Political News III- POS, soon-to-be-ex-Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, says he ‘won’t be running for the U.S. Senate seat in the Copper State.’  NO one wants the scumbag.  Meanwhile, after U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell scoffed at Senator Rick Scott’s ideas on what the GOP must do when it retakes the House and Senate in November, Senator Scott, R-FL, slapped back at ‘Cocaine Mitch.’  We do hope that if the GOP retakes power in the Senate, they will not elect the Democrat-loving dimwit from Kentucky ‘majority leader’ again.  It’s time for a change, folks.
  25. 2022 Friday X: U.S. Supreme Court News I- By a vote of 6-3, the U.S. Supreme Court returns the death sentence to surviving Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.   Good.  Take this POS son-of-a-bitch out, string him up, and leave him for the crows.
  26. 2022 Friday Y: Tranny News of the Day- Thanks to ‘Lia Thomas,’ the chick with a dick swimmer at Penn State, the university women’s swimming team has imploded.  NO one thinks it’s fair to compete against a man who still has everything intact when one’s a woman.  When ‘Lia’ was a man, he was ranked #462 as a swimmer whereas a woman, he’s ranked #1.  Go figure.  Who thinks this sort of crap is FAIR?
  27. 2022 Friday Z: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1743 what with a $113 million jackpot on the line: 11, 19, 28, 46, 47, and Mega 05.  Out of 73,449 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,102 apiece.

  72. 2017 Wednesday: In Kabul, Afghanistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam carry out two suicide bombings that kill at least 18 people and wound another 40.  What the hell is wrong with these people?  Elsewhere, Latin singer-entertainer-boob-shaker Charo will appear on Season 24 of “Dancing with the Stars.”  Groovy.   
  73. 2018 Thursday: Sounding like Soviet thug-dictators of old, Vladimir Putin- in his annual state of the country address- announces that Russia has an ‘invincible” intercontinental ballistic missile.  Meanwhile, White House communications specialist Hope Hicks announces her resignation.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump stirs up fears of a trade war with Communist China when he announces tariffs of 25% on steel and 10% on aluminum imports.  Directed at China, it also affects some of the country’s other trading partners.  Two years later, the tariffs worked.
  74. 2019 Friday: Famed Panamanian boxer Eusebio Pedroza- WBA featherweight champion 1978-1985- dies of pancreatic carcinoma at age 62.  Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos and Amazon announce that it plans on expanding into brick-and-mortar grocery stores across the United States in another bid to drive lower-level competitors out business.  (Wait until a year later when the Chi-Com virus would force everyone to shop online for their groceries).
  75. 2020 Sunday: Following the results of the Democratic Party’s Primary results from South Carolina the previous day, Mayor Pete Buttigieg throws in the towel, whining he cannot see a way forward.  Son, you NEVER had a way forward, minorities are not going to vote for you.  Stay in South Bend, Indiana, and make it great again.  Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts, announces that ‘no matter what, she is going to fight all the way to the convention in the summertime.’  We have heard other politicians say stuff like this before; once the money dries up, you are as good as gone but maybe if you change that nasty black leotard, you wear every flipping day, maybe people will look at you anew.   Just saying.[vii]
  76. 2021 Monday: Day 41 of the Biden Regime- things continue going from BAD to WORSE under this senile old coot and his fellow mental nursing home liberals and their younger loony tunes caretakers.  The U.S. Department of Labor announces that 10-percent- or more- of the China Virus pandemic claims for the Paycheck Protection Program are fraudulent.  We already know this to be true what with rappers talking about getting checks as being easier than peddling dope to grade school kids.  Folks, illegal aliens, prisoners, and hobos and tramps are all reaping COVID-19 Chi-Com virus aid while the American people continue their long vigil for the promised relief coming their way. 
  77. 2021 Monday A: Iran rejects any chance of U.S.-Iran direct talks on its nuclear program.  Folks, there is but one cure for Iran: hit them with neutron bombs and cleanse the earth of these foul mullahs. 
  78. 2021 Monday B: New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continues slumping due to the amazing hubris the POS presented the world by winning an Emmy and authoring a novel on how great a leader he was during the Wuhan Virus Crisis as his #MeToo problems continue dragging him down.  After suggesting he might appoint a retired federal judge to look into all the claims of sexual harassment and abuse, he is backtracking away on that one as new video comes to light of him encouraging a female reporter from 12 Westchester, Beth Cefalu, to engulf a WHOLE sausage (from a sandwich) at the 2016 New York State Fair.  As if this isn’t bad enough, the so-called ‘Love Gov,’ a moniker given to him by equally sick baby brother Chris who likes standing naked outside his wife’s online yoga class for all the world to see, his daughter Michaela, was sitting beside him.  Yes, indeed, the “Love Gov” is being hammered from ALL sides, including by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  The fading speaker says the claims against Cuomo are ‘credible’ so we can see his fellow Dems beginning to throw him under the bus now.[viii]
  79. 2021 Monday C:   Meanwhile, as Democrats realize the push for a $15 per hour minimum wage is a no-go, they have decided to shelve a tax penalty for employers fighting the increase.  Look, if everyone on the bottom end receives a $15 per hour minimum wage, skilled employees will require more money and everything we buy will immediately go up in price thus causing rapid inflation.  Add to that the fact the Dems want to flood the country with a vast number of illegal aliens and American workers will find themselves in the crapper as they were during the eight miserable years of Obama-Biden. 
  80. 2021 Monday D: The ‘Biden administration’ readies a WIDER economic relief package after the Chinese Virus relief plan goes into effect so it’s clear the Dems continue filling these pools of American taxpayers’ wealth so they can fund all their sugary additions to the ‘relief bill,’ money they will be able to tap into in the same way the Obama-Biden team was able to look after union workers while screwing nonunion workers during their eight years in office.   However, the U.S. Senate appears to be weighing the COVID-19 Relief Bill to see how much pork they might be able to cut from it.  
  81. 2021 Monday E: Donald J. Trump reiterated yesterday during the final speech at CPAC how he sought 10,000 National Guard troops to protect Washington, D.C. in the days around January 6, 2021, just as said it’s time to break up the BIG TECH monopolies. 
  82. 2021 Monday F: In other news, former Border czar Chad Wolf calls out the ‘Biden administration’s’ self-imposed head wound over OPEN BORDERS what with the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION, labeling them as ‘absurd’ and calling the flood of humanity seeking to force their way into the United States as a ‘crisis.’   Others say that after Joe Biden removed all controls along the southern border ‘an alien invasion is underway.’  We say minefields, folks, we say, ‘seed the Rio Grande River with baby alligators brought in from Louisiana, Florida, and Mississippi.  We say electrified fence, we say do whatever must be done to protect our border and to safeguard the American people. 
  83. 2021 Monday G: In other news, Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is facing her own Andrew “Killer” Cuomo problem, one in which, she sent Wuhan Flu-infected patients into nursing homes where they murdered vulnerable populations.  There is BUT one reason as to WHY someone would commit acts as egregious as these which is to ELIMINATE people who cost the state a fair share of their Medicaid money.[ix]  We can understand that these people can be a problem for governors who want to social engineer across their states by redistributing the wealth our aged, our infirm, and our dying require to keep them alive.  Democrat governors across the country have no problem doing whatever is required to rid themselves of these people short of putting pillows over their faces and smothering them to death.  Sending people with an infectious disease in with them?  That’s NO problem, folks!   
  84. 2021 Monday H: The Pennsylvania GOP is launching its own investigation into its Democrat Governor Tom Wolff over his far too many Yellow Fever 2020 deaths.  Like many Democrats in BLUE STATES, these heartless politicians try to eradicate invalids within their states, so they then redirect money spent on them to bogus programs, many of which enable them to find ways to receive kickbacks.  In other Chi-Com Virus news, the CDC says the Johnson & Johnson Kung Flu vaccine is almost ready to begin shipping around the country (which means the Third World is going to receive vaccinations before the American people do, thanks to ‘Senile Joe’ in the White House. 
  85. 2021 Monday I: Apparently, Saturday Night Live finds itself in more hot water with yet more anti-Semitic jokes.  WTF is wrong with these people?   Don’t they have Jews running the show there?  Where does all this anti-Semitism begin?  In other extremely ignorant news, the Virginia schools system forbids students to read Dr. Seuss’ books because they are somehow RACIST.  Folks, let’s cancel the Cancel Culture NOW.  NOW!  IF you pay no attention to social media, cancel culture cannot cancel you so let’s fight back against these putzes.    What would the LEFT like school kids to read?  Mao Zedong’s Little Red Book?  The Communist Manifesto?  Mein Kampf?  Don’t laugh, folks, all of these books are LEFT-WING philosophies.  Yes, National Socialism says it all, the keyword being ‘socialism.’  Perhaps if drag queens read these books to grade schoolers, it’s A-Okay.    
  86. 2021 Monday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 114,350,611 confirmed cases, +368,282, 2,536,865, confirmed deaths, +7,917, and 64,530,988 confirmed recoveries, +159,244.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,904,197 confirmed cases, up 30,809 from yesterday’s reporting, 519,044 confirmed deaths, UP 855, and 16,789,391 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  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 189,550 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!
  87. 2021 Monday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,569,588 confirmed cases, 52,293 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii has not updated their stats in nearly a week.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 342,696 confirmed cases, 5,024 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Arkansas: currently, they have 322,415 confirmed cases, 5,377 confirmed deaths, and 312,758 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 775,807 confirmed cases, 5,752 confirmed deaths, and 733,184 confirmed recoveries.
  88. 2021 Monday M:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,535.51, UP 603.14 points (+1.95%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,588.83, UP 396.48 points (+3.01%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,901.82, UP 90.67 points (+2.38%).  The price of GOLD is $1,723.10 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $26.64 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,190.90 per troy oz, -0.40 (-0.03%) while the price of COPPER is $4.10 per pound, -0.01 (-0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,358.50 per troy oz, +37.50 (+1.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.20 per barrel, -0.44 (-0.73%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.65.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.73.  
  89. 2021 Monday N: Instead of ordering California teachers to get their asses back in class or else, California has a $6.6 billion plan with which to reopen schools.  You know, if the schools don’t open until next year, the problems teachers are going to face in schools upon their return is going to be worse than the current disciplinarian problems they faced prior to the Beijing Bat Bug Virus.   Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General is suing their electric and natural gas provider over the sky-high energy costs variable customers had during the recent freak winter storm that hit more than a week ago.  What happened in Texas is reason enough to tell ALL Democratic-Socialist true believers in the Green New Deal to go f**k themselves.
  90. 2021 Monday O:  Energy provider Brazos Electric Cooperative in Texas files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, listing last month’s destabilizing storm that hammered the Lone Star State between February 13 and 19’ as its reasons for doing so.  People on variable rates plans found themselves facing bills of five figures.  We are unclear as to how this was possible in a state sans any power and yet it was.  This is akin to the subprime mortgage that propelled Barack Hussein Obama, an unknown senator from a notoriously crooked state, into the White House in 2008.   The state is still awaiting help from the Biden administration.  Gee, ‘President Biden’ may have forgotten the moment he promised it.
  91. 2021 Monday P: In the United States, 47 million people- 14-percent of the population- has received at least one injection of the China Virus vaccine, either Moderna or Biontech, and with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine approved for immediate use, we hope millions more will be able to receive this vaccine instead of the Third World.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Members of the European Union (or former)- France, Germany, and Great Britain- circulate a resolution to slam Iran for speeding up its nuclear ambitions.  The parties are circulating this draft ahead of the upcoming meeting of the IAEA.  Of course, everyone blames President Trump for withdrawing from the 2015 agreement in 2018.   Here’s the thing- Iran has been working on nuclear weapons and delivery systems from the very beginning so no one should be surprised by them NOT following the agreement.
  93. 2021 Monday R: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accuses Iran of attacking an Israeli-owned ship in the Gulf of Oman last week.  The vessel suffered a mysterious explosion in the gulf and had to put into a nearby port so that the blast could undergo investigation and the ship repaired.  Meanwhile, the United Arab Emirates first ambassador to Israel, Mohamed Al Khaja arrived in Jerusalem ahead of a meeting with President  Reuven Rivlin.  Both nations are part of the Abraham Accords in which Arab states have made peace with Israel and have opened trade and other economic ties with one another.   It also is an alliance against the Iranians.
  94. 2021 Monday S: ‘President Joe Biden’ held his second virtual meeting with another world leader, this one being Mexican President Manuel Lopez Obrador.  Hours earlier Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced Michelle Brane of Women’s Refugee Commission will head the new family reunification commission, which has reunited 115 of 611 illegal alien families broken up at the border.  The secretary said, “There’s no crisis at the border” even though the Biden administration is scrambling to find holding pens for the tens of thousands of illegal aliens swamping the country.
  95. 2021 Monday T: Iraqi security forces break up street protests in Baghdad’s Tahrir Square.  People are angry over events of last week in the southern city of Nasiriya where Iraqi authorities lit up protesters there.  People are unhappy with the government and the nation’s three rival groups- Shiites, Sunnis, and Kurds- are unhappy with one another especially as the Iranians continue penetrating the country so they can drive out Western interests and put theirs into place in Baghdad.
  96. 2021 Monday U: The Senate Judiciary Committee advances Judge Merrick Garland with a bi-partisan vote of 15-7 to send this wimpy POS to the Senate floor for a full vote to be Joe Biden’s attorney general.   Four Republicans joined with the Democrats in voting him through while seven voted NO.  Here are the four who voted with the Democrats: Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa, Lindsey Graham, South Carolina, Thom Tillis, North Carolina, and John Cornyn, Texas.  Here are the seven who voted against Joe Biden’s AG pick: Little Ben Sasse, Nebraska, Mike Lee, Utah, Josh Hawley, Missouri, Tom Cotton, Arkansas, John Kennedy, Louisiana, Marsha Blackburn, Tennessee, and Ted Cruz, Texas.   We believe the Republicans who voted FOR Judge Garland have a misguided sense of guilt they didn’t demand his Supreme Court nomination to have a hearing back in 2016 when Associate Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died.
  97. 2022 Tuesday: Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

[viii][viii] The problem Cuomo has is that the dimwit is not as smart as that dingbat governor in Virginia, Governor Ralph Northam, a man who never saw a baby whose brains he did not want to suck out its head at a Baby Chop Shop.  Governor Northam has a problem with dressing up in BLACKFACE and almost was driven from office when photos in his college yearbook, no less, surfaced.  They couldn’t drive Northam from office because his lieutenant governor is a multiple rapist while his third in line- the state’s attorney general also liked dressing up in blackface.  The people of Virginia would have had to remove far too many politicians before they could find someone who is neither a rapist nor a fan of dressing in blackface or in KKK outfits.  Cuomo stands alone and we predict that the longer he hangs on, the worse it will be for him.

[ix] DailyMail.com is the source for this story: “Video Shows Gov. Cuomo urging a Female Reporter to Eat a Whole Sausage.”  Let’s see YOU swallow that sausage, you sick f**k or better yet, keister it.

THE ELECTION IS COMING…

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.

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We 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 promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[iv] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Buddy Holly but when we do, we will also promote the music of Jerry Lee Lewis, the Big Bopper, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, and all the rest.  You will enjoy them.

DAY FOUR HUNDRED OF THE BIDEN REGIME

55. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2022, UPDATE A:

World War III is slow-rolling right before our very eyes.  Bit by bit, we are drawing closer to a Biblical conflagration that sounds a lot like the End Times and it’s all because we have a senile fool in the White House.  Is Joe the Antichrist?

  1. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 431,652,287 confirmed cases, +1,870,289, 5,946,766 confirmed deaths, +11,185 and 360,726,368 confirmed recoveries, +2,308,136. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 80,444,467 confirmed cases, UP 77,770 from yesterday’s reporting, 969,530 confirmed deaths, UP +3,137,[i] and 52,656,620 confirmed recoveries, UP 208,988 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 520,146 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 156,884 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 400 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 8,941,739 confirmed cases, 84,828 confirmed deaths, and 8,856,911 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,841,581 confirmed cases, 69,553 confirmed deaths, and 3,949,882 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 235,124 confirmed cases, 1,312 confirmed deaths, and 233,812 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,414,222 confirmed cases, 11,732 confirmed deaths, and 1,402,490 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Wyoming: they have 154,797 confirmed cases, 1,718 confirmed deaths, and 153,079 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,601,904 confirmed cases, 10,105 confirmed deaths, and 3,483,570 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Mauritius, 161st place on the list: 30,601 cases of the virus, 786 confirmed death and 26,791 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,223.83, UP 92.07 points (+0.28%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,473.58 UP 436.10 points (+3.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,288.70, UP 63.20 points (+1.50%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $93.16 per barrel, +1.06 (+1.17%).  The price of GOLD is $1,904.30 per troy oz., -5.70 (-0.30%) while the price of SILVER is $24.21 per troy ounce, -0.34 (-1.40%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,058.60 per troy oz, -33.00 (-3.02%) while the price of COPPER is $4.50 per pound, +0.01 (+0.31%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,404.96 per troy oz., -77.08 (-3.11%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,850.00 per troy oz., +300.00 (+1.62%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,510,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,416.00 per USD/T, +123.50 (+3.75%). The price of ZINC is $3,664.00 per USD/T., +92.50 (+2.59%).   The price of COCOA is $2,578.00 per USD/T, +34.50 +2.70%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,311.50 USD 1,000 board feet +34.50 (+2.70%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.33 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.89 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.54.    In Malaysian Ringgit, one greenback equals 4.20 and in Maldivian Rufiyaa, a buck equals 15.42 and in Mauritanian Ouguiya, one dollar equals 356.99 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.771 per gallon, $3.484 in Florida, $4.542 in Hawaii, and $3.986 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Kansas- $3.254.  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 135th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Albania: $6.872 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,148,871,417,740 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Taiwan the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Grand Cayman Island.  The seat of government of the European Union holds $253,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Ukrainian civilians are fleeing west towards NATO countries as Russian troops continue the invasion of Ukraine from at least three, possibly four directions.  Meanwhile, as the invasion continues, Joe Biden meets with G7 leaders to discuss measures to be used to stop the Russian conquest of Ukraine.  Later in the day, the Kremlin presented Ukraine with the terms of surrender today.   Russia also warned the world that any interference with its Ukraine invasion will be met with unprecedented consequences.  Many believe this to mean the Russians are preparing to launch an all-out cyberwar- if not nuclear war– on the West.   Senile Joe Biden is already floating the idea of launching a preemptive cyberattack on Russia.   The Russians and Chi-Coms could conduct an EMP strike on North America in anticipation.  Amazing how this is unfolding…
  8. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- The West hopes that stiff export curbs will slash Russia’s access to technology.  Moscow will get what it needs from its allies in Beijing.  Watch communist China send 10 divisions of Chi-Com soldiers to NATO’s borders as a statement of its alliance with Russia.  As Russia continues its invasion, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky declares both a curfew and martial law as his forces repel Russian assaults on Kyiv, military bases, ports, and other infrastructure and government facilities.   It has also been reported the Russians have seized the area around the Chernobyl power plant.
  9. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III- For some unknown reason to us, Pope Francis is extremely reluctant to criticize nor condemn Vladimir Putin’s illegal actions in Ukraine.  Unlike the Vatican, Israel strongly condemns the Russian transgressions in Ukraine.  President Donald J. Trump added his two-cents worth and says that ‘Putin would never have done this were I still in the White House.’  Yet, the left-wing news media continues braying like the jackasses they are that ‘Trump is responsible for all of this.’  Please.  STFU.  Counter to President Trump’s comments, RINO Senator Mitt Romney, Utah, says what is going on in Ukraine is the fault of the past three presidential administrations like this loser would do anything were he in the White House.
  10. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis IV- As the snowball continues gathering momentum, Lithuania is declaring a state of emergency as the Baltic States begin bracing for what could be coming their way.  Word has it that Russian naval forces in the Black Sea have destroyed Ukrainian navy coastal infrastructure.    Meanwhile, national security guru Ric Grenell says that ‘Joe Biden has failed, diplomacy has failed.’  The European Union, however, is slapping some of the harshest sanctions ever atop the Russian regime.   The United Kingdom is slapping massive sanctions on the Russkies and is freezing that nation’s assets currently being held in UK banks.
  11. 2022 Thursday J: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- For some reason unbeknownst to us, the globally-celebrated ‘border czar,’ the person we know as Vice President Kamala Harris- is missing in action.  That would explain the following statistics derived by the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.  First, here is the cost of caring for the millions upon millions of illegal aliens since January 01, 2022: $324,007,310.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the vast armies of illegal aliens running amok across our country- at the invitation of the Biden regime, no less for the past 420 days- $41,971,303,729.  Next, here is the shocking number of illegals who have crossed the border since January 01, 2022: 527,319.  Note- a normal military division consists of 60,000 men.  This number therefore makes about eight, almost nine full-strength military divisions.  Finally, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals roaming our country as you read this: 43,286,255.  Note- we contend there’s closer to 85-to-100 million illegal aliens in our country as we speak. Round ‘em up, deport all of them to Washington, D.C., Delaware, Scranton, Sacramento, and Oregon and Washington state, among others.
  12. 2022 Thursday K: Foreign News-Overseas News I- As Russia continues its endeavor into Ukraine, Taiwan reports at least NINE intrusions by Chi-Com planes in its defense zone.  The overflights commenced the day Russia steamrolled into Ukraine.  Meanwhile, Moscow police arrest approximately 1,700 antiwar protesters.  Perhaps they will be loaded aboard trains, sent east over the Urals to Xinjiang Province to help Muslim convicts make LeBron James’ tennis shoes.  Meanwhile, when queried as to WHY Russia is invading their neighbor to the south, President Putin said it’s to carry out ‘de-Nazification.’  Didn’t Josef Stalin take care of that following World War II?
  13. 2022 Thursday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $45.95 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.13 (3) Merck & Company: $73.52 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $158.16 (5) Novavax: $79.95 (6) BioNTech: $154.06 (7) Moderna: $156.23.
  14. 2022 Thursday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $94.25 (2) General Dynamics: $218.53 (3) Boeing: $198.43 (4) Lockheed Martin: $395.61 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $395.49.
  15. 2022 Thursday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.55 (2) DuPont: $75.57 (3) Honeywell: $182.34 (4) 3M: $143.65 (5) Teijen: $1,374.00.
  16. 2022 Thursday O: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.78 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $27.89 (3) Beyond Meat: $49.00.
  17. 2022 Thursday P: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $134.61 (2) Lowe’s: $213.44 (3) Home Depot: $313.08 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $505.58 (5) Amazon: $3,027.16.
  18. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden News I- Arriving nearly two hours late to his press conference with which to address the White House press corps and update the American people, stumblebum Joe Biden unveiled ‘powerful sanctions with which to transform Russian President Vladimir Putin into a pariah.’  Wow.  He also lambasted Mr. Putin by saying in a punitive tone, that ‘he chose war.’  Shortly after Biden stumbled off after answering a few pre-arranged questions, newscasters and pundits alike were saying, ‘what sanctions?’  He did not demand closure of the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline into Europe, he did not cut the Russians off from the SWIFT banking system, nor did he announce the resumption of the Keystone XL Pipeline with which to get U.S. oil flowing rather than to continue buying dirty oil from the nation he is condemning.  And the liberals labeled President Donald J. Trump a ‘Russian stooge.’  Joe Biden personifies what ‘Russian stooge’ means.
  19. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News I- An upper member of the Biden regime says that so far, no signs of increased Russian nuclear activity has been seen.  Uh, okay.  The U.S. Secret Service announces that travel records for Hunter Biden between 2010-2013 are- don’t you just hate this when it happens?- missing.  Wow.  Next, after slapping sanctions on major Russian banks, three of them blew off Joe Biden’s so-called ‘sanctions.’
  20. 2022 Thursday S: Political News I- Former UN ambassador and noted RINO Nikki Haley says we should take the words of tyrants seriously.  Next, U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell jumped on the ‘war train’ today and urged Joe Biden- his former U.S. Senate colleague- to ratchet sanctions on Russia ‘all the way up’ as in Country Joe and the Fish’ ‘Fish Cheer/I-Feel-Like-I’m-Fixin’-to-Die,” ‘there’s money to be made supplying the army with the tools of the trade…’ In other political news, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says the ‘liberal news media is attacking her for her criticisms of the Biden regime and its weak response to Vladimir Putin’s Russia.’
  21. 2022 Thursday T: Political News II- Brown-nosed as always, U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he wholeheartedly supports feeble Joe Biden’s potential judicial picks.  Keep your nose up Uncle Joe’s rear-end there, Chuck.  Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says of Joe Biden what others have recently said: that President Donald J. Trump kept Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping in check.  Look at the ‘pattern,’ under George W. Bush, Putin grabbed two provinces away from Georgia, under Barack Hussein Obama, he took the Crimea, under Trump, he did nothing, and under feeble Joe Biden, he has launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine.  Likewise, famed RINO Senator Lindsey Graham said of President Donald J. Trump that he ‘warned Putin and Xi and they feared him.’
  22. 2022 Thursday U: Texas State News- The George Soros-funded D.A. in Austin, Texas, Jose Garza, charged 19 police officers with policy brutality over their part in last year’s violent Antifa ana Black Lives Matter protests.  Most believe they did nothing wrong, yet, last week, the city’s district attorney made the announcement.  Today, Governor Greg Abbott says he is considering an exoneration for those 19 officers unfairly targeted by this Soros hack.   Meanwhile, failed 2020 presidential primary candidate Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke is releasing a book on VOTING in the midst of his attempt to win the governorship of the Lone Star State.
