  73. 2019 Monday: In response to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard downing a U.S. drone over the Persian Gulf, President Donald J. Trump targets Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other Iranian thugs with sanctions.  Meanwhile, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Mark Esper assumed his position on this date.  He served under President Donald J. Trump from today until July 15, 2019.  A so-called Republican, he would become the 27th U.S. secretary of defense on July 23 and would serve in this position until President Trump fired his worthless, traitorous butt on November 09, 2020.
  74. 2020 Wednesday: A three judge panel of the D.C. Court of Appeals tells D.C. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan to DROP the case against former national security advisor and Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn (Ret.) that both the prosecutors and the U.S. Department of Justice already asked him to end.  At the time of publication, we have not yet heard whether this political activist judge will do what was asked of him or whether he will continue trying to go after Flynn.  It is clear to everyone with half-a-brain or more that it’s OVER, the man has been unfairly punished and forced into pleading guilty to save his family members.  It has cost him $6.7 million to defend himself from this frivolous batch of bulls**t.
  75. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Kung Flu stats for the world today: 9,237,691 confirmed cases, 476,911 confirmed deaths, and 4,613,425 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,425,361 confirmed cases, 123,726 confirmed deaths, and 746,563 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, the NOT-so-Golden State first: 190,222 confirmed cases, 5,632 confirmed deaths, and as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are today’s stats: 819 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 673 confirmed recoveries.  Lastly, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,826 confirmed cases, 1,293 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  For the fun of it, let’s look at the numbers for Michigan: 68,555 confirmed cases, 6,114 confirmed deaths, but sadly, Napoleonic Governor Gretchen Whitmer WON’T release the number of confirmed recoveries.

Trump announces he will sign an executive order that will forbid the desecration of federal monuments or memorials with the possibility of 10 years in federal prison.  We have seen uncontrolled mobs, filled with communists, and funded by the Chinese Communist Party (or so we believe) that the minute a horrible crime like the slaying of George Floyd occurs, take to the streets across the nation destroying everything in their path as though they were reincarnations of Mao Zedong’s Red Guards.  Sign it, Mr. President, sign it, and let’s see this scum go to PRISON for good.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 300,702 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.

  82. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.249 per gallon, $2.939 in Florida, $3.993 in Hawaii, and $3.670 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- New Jersey: $3.082.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Bahamas: $3.941 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,444,594,224,863 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiii]
  83. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #93 for Willie Brown’s mattress, the laughing jackal, aka the ‘border czar’ aka “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this job and yet to have visited the southern border.  Reportedly, she is going to go tomorrow so as to beat President Donald J. Trump who is visiting the border with Texas state and GOP officials this upcoming Wednesday, June 30.   Next, here are today’s stats as presented by One America News: (1) Cost this day for caring for the illegal aliens in the country: $530,048,320.  (2) Total Cost this year of caring for infestation: $191,215,026,176.  Next, (3) numbers of illegals who have crossed this year: 1.959,861.  Finally, (4) Total estimated number of illegal aliens lurking in the country: 35,959,800.  (Note- our blog has been around since 2009 and back then, we estimated the number of illegal aliens in the country at 35-50 million.  Now, a dozen years later, we believe the number of illegals infesting the country is around 75 is around 75-100 million.  Time to begin scooping up this flotsam and jetsam of humanity and loading them aboard trains, planes, airliners, buses, and even freighters and returning them to Tierra del Fuego.  Let them march up from the tip of South America back to the border where hopefully, we will have lain in minefields, antipersonnel ditches and obstacles, and other impediments to the illegal alien invasion.  It must stop now).
  84. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– The BBC is reporting that the conditions in which illegal alien brats are languishing is absolutely horrific and is an insult to all nations claiming to respect ‘human rights.’  Meanwhile, we continue hearing that the illegal alien brats able to escape these gulags are being shuttled across the country and handed over to foster parents who are getting paid handsomely to care for these noncitizen children.  Cheaper to send them home.  NOW.  Rep. Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Chris Salcedo of Newsmax TV that the federal government is ignoring all laws connected with illegals by giving them housing vouchers, free travel, food, transportation, and even stimulus checks which is insane, costing the American taxpayers, and simply must stop.  (Note- and ‘hairy-legs Joe’ wonders why the American people continue buying more firearms, ammo, and anything else they can with which to defend themselves from both illegal aliens and out-of-control, oppressive federal government).
  85. : Foreign News / Overseas News I– Israel opposes the reentry of the United States into the Iran nuclear deal, aka the JCPOA.  Next, over allegations of the rampant use of SLAVE LABOR in Chi-Com concentration camps, the United States is banning imports of materials used in solar panels from that hellhole of a nation.  Good.  Let’s make everything we can here in the United States- like we used to do.   Meanwhile, the FREEDOM FIGHTERS of the TRUE CHINA- Taiwan- are condemning the shuttering of the Apple Daily, a true voice for the pro-democracy, pro-freedom movement in Hong Kong.  The Chi-Coms have arrested many upper echelon employees and have closed the paper down as of today.  Thank you, Taiwan, for being so bold in calling out this evil travesty.  “Pro-China Joe” Biden most certainly won’t.  Elsewhere, there is fear that with Benjamin Netanyahu no longer the prime minister of Israel that all the gains made by the Abraham Accords could go out the window.  That would be sad.   Finally, German Fuhrer Angela Merkel says that Europe is on ‘thin ice’ due to the rise of the Delta variant of the Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus running amok there.  Uh, okay.
  86. 2021 Thursday IPolitical News I– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, to Newsmax TV: “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the ‘border czar,’ is visiting the wrong part of the border tomorrow.   Next, former governor and UN ambassador Nikki Haley is scheduled to give the keynote address at Iowa’s Annual Lincoln Day GOP dinner fueling speculation that she may run for the White House in 2024.  (Note- don’t bother, Nikki, we place you in the same category as other losers such as John McCain, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, and other detestable RINOs.  Still, it’s your humiliation).
  87. 2021 Thursday J:  Political News II– As the witch hunt grinds on and on, the New York State Bar Association has suspended the law license of “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani, also the attorney of President Donald J. Trump.  These people should be ashamed.  New York could care less about all the riots that happened last summer, the countless businesses burned, the people injured and even killed; no, all they care about is anyone on the Trump team.  F**k them.  Speaking of Rudy, he said that outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, CPUSA, legacy is rising crime and nothing else.
  88. 2021 Thursday K: Political News III– Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, says that tomorrow’s visit by “Kooky Kamala” Harris to the southern border is going to use illegal alien kids as photo props.  Sad.   Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says ‘it’s time to fire Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci over his incompetence.’  Next, the Biden regime and a bipartisan group of senators (meaning Democratic-Socialists and obsequious RINOs) have arrived at a deal on infrastructure.  Elsewhere, the Democrat-controlled Congress has repealed Trump-era safeguards imposed on payday lenders.
  89. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– FBI Director Chris Wray is defending his request for $10 billion for the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The FBI must monitor them thar white supremacists, you know.  Ain’t them white supremacists Democrats?  You got that right, too.   Next, following Catholic bishops determining that drooling Joe Biden is not eligible for receiving Holy Communion, Democrats are calling for reviews of tax-exempt statuses for numerous Christian houses of worship.  (Note- the Dems will NEVER go after Muslims, folks, too scary and too dangerous for them to do so).  In other Biden regime news, he is going to relocate Afghans who have aided the Americans and allied troops in Afghanistan.  Good.  In other Biden regime news, the feds say that ‘employment is significantly down thanks to business owners not hiring.’  (Note- they can’t pay the wages it would take to entice recalcitrant employees to return to work).
  90. 2021 Thursday M: California State News– Things continue going bad to worse for Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in that the 30 days period with which to permit timid voters who signed the recall petitions to back out, out of the nearly 2 million valid signatures, only 43 people retracted their names.  Forty-three people, folks, which tells us just how much the people of this state detest the little prick.  Add to that the fact that HE LIED to the citizens of the Golden State by claiming ‘his administration performed fire maintenance on more than 90,000 acres within the state when in actuality, he did less than 12,000.  (Note- watch for the Delta variant of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to be out of control around Election Day so the wimpy governor can try to frighten voters into not going to the polls to oust him.  It won’t work).  Speaking of the Golden State, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca is urging for the declaration of a state of emergency over the homelessness problem that sees homeless people camped out on public beaches, in the streets, back alleyways, in abandoned buildings, vacant lots, parking garages, the city is going to hell and needs help.  Declare the emergency, “Nazi Newsom!”
  91. 2021 Thursday N: U.S. Military News– Reportedly, in two weeks, the U.S. will have just 650 troops stationed in Afghanistan.  Meanwhile, the pathetic political hack who serves as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, tries to normalize the bogus Critical Race Theory (which we now view as CRIMINAL RACE THEORY), he brags about reading ‘Marx, Mao, Lenin,’ and other left-wing murderers and hacks.  Friends, General Mark Milley is akin to Nazi Generals Alfred Jodl and Wilhelm Keitel, both of whom went to the gallows in the aftermath of World War II.   This is what happens to brown-nosing political hacks and it’s time these losers were the ones culled from the herd, not brave patriots.  We wish he were a patriot like General George S. Patton or Field Marshal Douglas MacArthur but he’s not- he’s a hack.
  92. 2022 Friday: Where we were last year: The Joe Biden regime continues to stumble along, looking for white supremacists wherever they can find them even though none exist and IF they did exist, they would be among the Democrats as that is who fleshed out the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan.  Still, all components of the Executive and Legislative branches continue beating the drums seeking them out wherever they can find them so they can punish them.  How soon before drooling Joe Biden requests the Chi-Coms send him some troops so he can maintain order in the streets?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Poor Brian Wilson, beset by mental troubles, either caused by familial or drug-induced problems was under the control of one of the EVILEST people in the annals of modern music- Dr. Eugene Landy who was hired originally by the other Beach Boys to keep poor Brian on the straight and narrow.  Somehow, this evil scumbag got control of Wilson in ways similar to what happened to Britney Spears- at a later date- only this despicable disgrace to the mental health community got his name and others among his employees as cowriters on Brian Wilson’s tunes so they could suck every cent possible out of one of America’s greatest composers.  Brian recorded a solo album- his first- the self-titled “Brian Wilson,” an album that came out on July 12, 1988.  Brian brought in a competent lot of musicians to help him craft this album and given the circumstances- with Landy or one of his minions spying on Wilson at all hours of the day and night- is worth checking out.  In later years, Landy and his troll-like helpers have had their names stripped from the album which is good because all of them deserve to be doing long prison terms in maximum-security facilities.  Seek it out, give it a listen, and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

173. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22, 2022

1978 Thursday: The neo-Nazis call off their march through Skokie, Illinois. For weeks leading up to their planned march through a Jewish neighborhood filled with Holocaust survivors, there was major uproar across the nation and the world.

  54. 2008 Sunday: In Santa Monica, California, acerbic standup comedian and satirist, George Carlin, died at age 71.  Had he survived another 12 years or so, the sniveling little Wokies would have been howling for his head as he called things the way he saw them.

  60. 2015 Monday: According to Brainy History, Nikki Haley, governor of South Carolina, supports removal of the Confederate flag from state grounds; however, the state legislature must first overturn a law requiring the flag to be flown at the Confederate Soldier Monument.

  62. 2017 Thursday: In an interview with Newsweek, Prince Harry claims that ‘no one in the British royal family wants to be king or queen.’  Okay.  In 2020, his new wife, Meghan Markle would lead him away from the family and into a life of anonymity in Canada.
  63. 2018 Friday: White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant; the co-owner said the move came at the request of homosexual employees who objected to Sanders’ defense of President Donald J. Trump’s effort to bar transgender people from the military.  Meanwhile, in that well-known ‘bastion of freedom,’ communist China, Chinese social media blocks comedian John Oliver after he mocks Xi Jinping, now president for life.  Ah, gee, can’t take a little ribbing?  Communists lack senses of humor.
  64. 2019 Saturday: A coup attempt in Ethiopia fails with four government officials- including Army Chief of Staff General Seare Mekonnen.  Meanwhile, the United States announces that it’s going to slap additional sanctions on Iran so as to prohibit them from ever obtaining nuclear weapons.
  65. 2020 Monday: Law enforcement in Chicago reports that over the Father’s Day weekend, 102 people were shot, 14 died, including a 3-year-old boy sitting in his father’s car.  Yet NO one is marching in the streets attacking the murderous thugs who commit these heinous crimes, NO one.  They only care when a white cop shots a black brother.  WTF, Chicago?  Wake the f**k up and stop this black-on-black genocide.  Meanwhile, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin announces a plan to reclaim CHOP from the riotous scum inhabiting this area.  Two people were shot in the Occupied Zone over the weekend with one death.  Have the cops cleaned this human pond scum OUT?  Finally, in Washington, D.C., violent mobs attempt to tear down the statue of General and President Andrew Jackson, the man who won the Battle of New Orleans in the War of 1812 and then became president.  In response to the growing Chinese-funded (or so we hear) unrest, the White House evacuated all reporters.  No one seems capable of stopping the communists.  Americans will have to do it for the trembling GOP politicians.
  66. 2020 Monday A: The Xi Jinping Bat Flu continues running amok, taking names and lives.  Thank you, communist China, thank you.  Here are today’s stats: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Here are the stats for the United States, thanks to communist China: 2,350,756 confirmed cases, 122,085 confirmed deaths, and 732,227 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 178,054 confirmed cases, 5,515 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In the Aloha State, here are the numbers: 814 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 651 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Evergreen State, home of Jenny Durkin and CHOP, here are the stats: 28,834 confirmed cases, 1,276 confirmed deaths, and like California, Jay Inslee releases NO number of the confirmed recoveries.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,926 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 159,723 deaths

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 295,491 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 164,158 deaths

  64. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.222 per gallon, $2.964 in Florida, $3.964 in Hawaii, and $3.608 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.860.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Benin: $3.530 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,386,582,824,037 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been lynched.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  As for holders of U.S. debt, Switzerland is the next highest holder with $256 billion of U.S. national debt.[xix]
  65. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– As ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris continues taking flak over her lies and claims about visiting the border, President Donald J. Trump says he may be visiting the southern border very soon.  Criticism continues slamming into the ‘border czar’ like that coming from Sandy “The Fly” Cortez who slammed the inept politician over her telling Central American illegal aliens ‘not to come, not to come, because I don’t think you will be able to get in.’  Add to that a new report suggests that the Harris team was ‘perplexed by her answers to questions’ while on their trip to Guatemala and Mexico.  While in Mexico, the ‘border czar’ failed to discuss Mexico’s refusal to take their illegal aliens back.  WTF? Elsewhere, Australian TV pundit Paul Murray said that ‘Donald J. Trump was right on immigration.’
  66. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– A Dutch court read evidence in court that proves that Flight MH17 was indeed shot down over eastern Ukraine by a Russian anti-aircraft missile from the ‘BUK’ missile system.  The missile belonged to the Russian 53rd Anti-Missile Brigade.  Elsewhere, Egypt is seeking to help ease tensions in the Middle East.  Next, Kim Jong Un’s weight loss raises questions about his health.  Perhaps he has given up foreign cheeses and alcohols?  Elsewhere, it appears the socialist candidate in Peru’s presidential election- Pedro Castillo- is leading rival Keiko Fujimori.  Elsewhere, we learn that indirect talks between the United States and Iran are set to resume this weekend.  Finally, Canada says they are willing to take in some Central Americans to help the United States handle the tidal wave of illegal aliens.
  67. 2021 Wednesday H: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– New York state Senate Republicans are preparing to unveil a new bill with which to bring about parole reform.  State Senator Daphne Jordan, R-NY, says Dems have gone insane with their anti-cop and anti-victim policies.  Meanwhile, the family of Ashli Babbitt has filed a lawsuit against the Capitol Hill Police Department demanding to know the name of the officer who shot her dead-on January 06, 2021, and the reasons as to WHY she was shot.  (Note- we believe that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi told the Capitol Hill fuzz that someone had to die and so she was the unfortunate victim.  NO other reason exists as to why a black member of the department stepped forward and shot her dead).
  68. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information I– Israel says there is growing evidence that the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine can lead to deadly heart inflammation- myocarditis- in younger males.  As for vaccine passports, Texas became the latest state among more than half a dozen states to prohibit vaccine passports.  The governor signed this bill on Monday.  DHS announced that it’s going to maintain a vaccine database.  Oregon may be joining the states prohibiting passports for citizens seeking to go about their daily lives.  Elsewhere, a new study suggests that hydroxychloroquine aka Plaquenil can boost Xi Jinping Bat Flu survival rates by 200-percent.
  69. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– In other Chi-Vi news, a WHO board member told Newsmax that Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is a ‘hero’ for calling for a probe into the ‘VID.  Moving on, a new Cleveland Clinic study says that ‘No vaccine required for those who have already had COVID-19.’  Next, the U.S. plans to buy $500 million worth of Pfizer’s Chi-Vi vaccines to share with the rest of the world.  Elsewhere a government watchdog is suing the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services over CDC-New York missing data on the numbers of deaths related to the Chi-Vi in the state’s rest homes.   Next, the Delta COVID-19 variant possibly more deadly than the original.  Hmmm, sounds like the next TERROR CAMPAIGN is oncoming.  (Note- if it’s so dangerous, why are illegal aliens piled onto public transportation sans masks, sans health checks, sans any kind of quarantine and distributed across the United States?  Are the Democrats and their Chi-Com masters seeking to set another pandemic in motion for 2022?  Is this going to become a way of life every election cycle?)
  70. 2021 Wednesday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Michigan health officials report new case of human hantavirus which could signal a new outbreak is on its way.  The virus is spread by rats and the disease is similar to COVID-19 in its affects but is much more deadly although not quite as contagious.
  71. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden left on Air Force One today for his first overseas trip.  Europe is the destination for the upcoming G7 summit and then his summit in Switzerland with Vladimir Putin. In Britain, Faux First Lady Jill Biden addressed the forced crowd of U.S. servicemen-and-women (-and its)- longer than her husband, Joe, did.  Reminiscent of how President Woodrow Wilson’s wife, Edith Bolling Galt, was calling the shots for much of his second term.  Joe, however, did promise to ‘tell Vladimir Putin the things he needs to be told’ (like maybe, where’s my cut for allowing you to complete the Nord Stream 2 pipeline?)  Joe is also set to unveil a new global vaccination program paid for by the U.S. taxpayer just like every other BIG GOVERNMENT plan so beloved by the Democrats.  Moving on, it appears that Joe Biden will require more than $52 billion for effort to produce our own CHIPS.
  72. 2021 Tuesday M: Energy News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, signs a pair of bills today with which to strengthen the Lone Star State’s electrical grid so as to prevent another shutdown across the state like the one that left more than 5 million Texans in the cold and dark following its collapse earlier in the year.  The legislation will fix all the flaws within the system that befell ERCOT during the freak winter storm, a storm that killed 141 people.  It also drove up variable rate power bills to oppressive highs customers could not pay.  Elsewhere, a Dutch court ruling may force Shell to scale back on its oil and gas industries.
  73. 2021 Tuesday N: U.S. House of Representatives News– The House ‘problem-solvers caucus’ is looking to pick up the pieces on the failed bi-partisan infrastructure bill that collapsed in the upper chamber.   Meanwhile, Rep.  Jay Obernolte, R-CA 8th congressional district, introduces a bill with which to create cyber jobs within the federal government.
  74. 2021 Tuesday O: U.S. Senate News– Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, is looking into possible collusion between Microsoft and the Chinese Communist Party.  Senator Romney also claims that IF the bipartisan ‘infrastructure bill’ were to pass, it would NOT raise taxes.  Uh, okay.  Still, senators claim they are negotiating the infrastructure bill sans any tax hikes which we all know is BULLS**T).  Next, the U.S. Senate passes a bill with which to combat Chi-Com aggressive competitiveness by pumping $2 billion into hardening America’s tech shell.  Meanwhile, a new Senate report on the events of January 06, 2021, says that backlash over the Black Lives Matter riots led to the tepid response of the Capitol Hill Riots of that day.  Senator John Cornyn, R-TX, says talks on gun background checks have ended with NO agreement among the senators.
  75. 2021 Tuesday P: Big Tech News– A new Apple security feature available to customers WON’T be available to customers in communist China.  Elsewhere, bidding for a seat on Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin suborbital flight into space has hit $3,8 million.  Meanwhile, a major internet outage led to the shutdown of high-traffic websites and apps.   Elsewhere, growing concerns over Amazon.com Inc. new tech- Sidewalk Mesh Network- raises privacy concerns.  According to sources, the network will link tens of millions of Amazon smart devices with each of them sharing a teeny tiny bit of their bandwidth so as to increase the size of the network.  In so doing, this will permit hackers backdoor entry into the network where they can set up shop and monitor anyone or anything they choose without anyone knowing they are there.  F**k Amazon.com.  Hopefully, Jeff Bezos’ trip into near outer space will be a one-way trip.
  76. 2021 Tuesday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– It’s official: after 19 years hosting the hit TV show, “The Bachelor,” Chris Harrison will no longer be doing it because the WOKE are mad at him for having come to the defense of one of the female contestants after images surfaced of her attending an antebellum ball a few years back.  Harrison is seeking a multi-million-dollar payout promised by the show’s producers.
  77. 2021 Tuesday R: Business News– British Airways and Ryanair are being probed over how they handled refunding customers’ airline tickets during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Meanwhile, Las Vegas Sands is facing a $12 billion lawsuit in the former Portuguese colony of Macau.  Elsewhere, a wedding boom across the U.S. continues forcing vendors to scramble to keep up with the rising numbers.   Next, Boeing says the delivery of new Air Force One jets is delayed.   In other business news, ‘every bushel counts’ say economists involved in crop markets say as droughts in both the United States and in other countries keep everyone on the edge. Currently, a bushel of corn is $607.75.  Next, the company behind the Keystone XL pipeline- TC Energy- terminates the $9 billion project several months after drooling Joe terminated the permit for the project.  Finally, ‘memo to meme raiders’- squeezable stock shorts are taking cover.
  78. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News–  a new Gallup Poll suggests that Americans are equally divided on the morality of abortion with Republicans among the lowest and Democrats among the highest in favor of abortion at all stages.  Hence, why we call it the Pro-Death Movement.  What’s next?  Old folks, the disabled, and the mentally ill?  Nazism on the way!
  79. 2021 Wednesday T: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– A judge in the Peach State has ordered an audit of Fulton County ballots as evidence continues to show that many ballots may have been photocopied and therefore are invalid.   Meanwhile, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, says that the election audits are ‘revealing the truth.’
  80. 2021 Wednesday U: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Former federal agency head says that UFOs says that Unidentified Aerial Phenomena have shut down U.S. nuclear facilities.   Elsewhere, Richard Branson aims to beat Jeff Bezos into space with upcoming Virgin Galactic launch.
  81. 2021 Wednesday V: Miscellaneous News I– U.S.M.C. recruit dies during ‘the Crucible’ training.  Elsewhere, a former New York Times reporter hammers the NYT for ‘activists journalists.’  Meanwhile, Newsmax reports that ‘cicadas are flying (one it would appear looked like it flew into Joe Biden’s ear) whereas Joe’s press plane was grounded for what seemed hours.  (Note- we think Joe does not want close news media coverage and we all know why).
  82. 2021 Wednesday W: National Security News– A new cyberattack and data breach targeting the Internal Revenue Service puts ALL Americans at risk.   Meanwhile, the Pentagon has announced that it’s going to make the Chi-Com military buildup its top priority.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden now is going to reverse President Donald J. Trump’s ban on the so-called social media sharing apps TikTok and WeChat- which in truth is an intelligence-gathering app for the Chinese Communist Party and People’s Liberation Army.  The Chi-Coms are doing what the Nazis did in the 1930s, they are reconnoitering countries around the world with their Belt and Roads Initiative and its so-called ‘social media’ platforms.  Ware is indeed coming and we must strike them FIRST.  Thermonuclear war is the ONLY answer.
  83. 2021 Wednesday X: Political News I– An author points the finger at Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio for being the sole architect of the Big Apple’s decline.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says countries should ban Facebook and Twitter over censorship.  Elsewhere, a Trump-backed candidate in Virginia unseats a seven-term House member.  Moving on, Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, says that communist China is our ‘biggest adversary.’  Meanwhile, a new poll says that ‘older millennials disinterested in running for political office.  Next, a new report says that Capitol Hill Police did not clear Lafayette Park across from White House so President Donald J. Trump could do a ‘photo op last summer.’  Moving on, in a story that first hit the news cycle yesterday, growing outrage over Hunter Biden’s use of repeated RACIAL SLURS targeting black Americans (his dad’s a racist, too) while conversing in text messages with people with whom he interacted like his lawyer.
  84. 2021 Wednesday Y: Political News II– Anger continues to grow around the country following Chi-Com agent Rep.  Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, CPUSA-CA 15th congressional district, hiring a process server to follow the wife of Rep.  Mo Brooks, R-AL, 5th congressional district, into her garage so he could serve her a subpoena for her husband.   Dumbass Swalwell is serving people he blames for the FALSE FLAG OPERATION members of his party and its shock troops- Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other such riffraff- launched against the Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.  He has served members of the Trump Family as well as Rudy Giuliani, America’s Mayor, to appear before his kangaroo court and answer his questions so he can then forward them to his pals in the Ministry of State Security in Beijing.  Troubled times are coming in the Banana Republic of the United States if we don’t drive these communist-loving POS out of government and out of life and into federal prison.
  85. 2021 Wednesday Z: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– The Super Lotto jackpot for Draw #3567 is $53 million.  As for Powerball Draw #853, tonight’s jackpot rests at $20 million.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto: 01, 14, 23, 42, 44, and Mega 09.  Out of 142,049 winning tickets, the highest winners were SIX people who had five numbers BUT NO Mega for a prize of $8,013.  Next here are the numbers for the Powerball: 19, 28, 46, 50, 54, and Mega 09.  Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Gov. Janice McGeachin, while he was out of the state.  Apparently, McGeachin is running against her boss seeking to take him out because of his handling of the COVID-19 crisis in the state.  Governor Little NEVER ordered masks to be worn but wore one himself.  While he was out of state, McGeachin undermined him by instituting a mask mandate.  She sounds more like a Democrat to us.   McGeachin claims she tried to protect personal freedoms with her bogus mask mandate.  (Note- this woman sounds like a member of the Ben Sasse, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, and Liz Cheney class of losers.  There’s always room for more).

Trump has said that ‘vast numbers of dead folks voted in 2020’ (which is no surprise to us); however, even stranger, many of them asked for absentee ballots.  Now that’s peculiar.  Meanwhile, a judge has halted the election audit in Fulton County, Georgia, after Democrats began raising holy hell about it.  Wait- if they had nothing to hide, why not encourage the audit?  Something does not add up here.

In other disgusting news, the Daily Caller reported that Joe Biden looking at the young daughter of one of his flunkies, he said ‘she looks like she 19-years-old with her legs crossed.’  (Note- this is the sexual goober you people on the left claim is our ‘president?’  We’re so proud).

Wow.  Something of which to brag, Hunter. Second to last, California authorities are offering $300 thousand reward to find out who the hell murdered Aiden in a fit of road rage about a week ago.  Finally, noted legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the CNN lawsuit is all about misleading the ticket.

  18. 2021 Friday Q: Political News III– House Republicans are putting forth two bills with which to confirm the origins of the Wuhan Virus.  God bless them.  Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov slapped two new judges onto the Empire State’s appellate courts.  He NEEDS friends in high places to protect him.  Speaking of New York, Pro-Life protesters won a victory that will allow them to continue protesting this abominable practice that no moral country should ever permit the way it’s permitted here.  Meanwhile, Rep. Barry Moore, R-AL 2nd congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s $6 trillion budget that it’s ‘criminal.’  He says instead of mailing checks to people’s mailboxes as ‘COVID-19 relief,’ it would make more sense to get people back to work and give them a tax holiday for as long as possible.’  Finally, since Mayor Lori “The Bigot” Lightfoot said, ‘white reporters can no longer interview her,’ some smartass has served her with a lawsuit.  Good for them.
  19. 2021 Friday R: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Noted conservative icon Todd Starnes says that a teacher in Virginia has been placed on leave for refusing to affirm that biological boys can become biological girls which they flipping can’t.  The Board of Education in Virginia placed this teacher on leave as they continue pushing this crackpot crap.  Folks, Myra Breckinridge was a flipping movie and anyone who continues pushing this crap is doing it as a way of damaging the country.  Perhaps it would be better if the jihadists did take the country over.  Rooftops in every city would be extremely busy.  Moving on, liberal MP William Amos of Canada was forced to apologize for peeing in a bottle while on a conference call with other lawmakers.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys for some unknown reason was panned when in fact, it is among our favorites of their so-called ‘early-mid stage’ recordings.  “20/20” came out on February 10, 1969, and has some of our most favorite tunes on it.  Tunes like the live favorite, “Do It Again,” “I Can Hear Music,” “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” the raunchiest Beach Boys tune ever- “All I Want to Do” (hard-rocking, too), as well as the beautiful instrumental, “The Nearest Faraway Place.”  Also on this amazing record is a lovely cover of “Cotton Fields,” as well as “Our Prayer” and “Cabinessence.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass), as well as some other musicians with which to round out the overall sound.

  64. 2003 Thursday: On this date, President George W. Bush erroneously declares aboard the aircraft carrier, USS Abraham Lincoln, off the coast of California that “combat operations in Iraq are over.”  The world comes to know this as the infamous “Mission Accomplished” speech as the insurrection against Coalition forces was soon to begin.  
  65. 2004 Friday: The European Union adds 10 new member nations to its growing body of European countries: Cyprus and Malta in the Mediterranean as well as Poland, the three Baltic republics- Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, and Slovakia.  The bumps up the population of the massive bloc to 455 million with the addition of the 75 million within these new states.  Wow.

  67. 2006 Sunday: In the United States, illegal aliens want to show the American people ‘what for’ by staying home from their jobs.  They want to show the American people that WE NEED THEM.  NO, we don’t need you and as many of us who are employers did back then, IF the illegals didn’t show up, we FIRED them and, in some cases, handed their information over to immigration authorities.  Look, we need to send the welfare folks out into the fields, and we would bet they would get better jobs ASAP.  Then, we could revive the Bracero Program that worked so well for decades.
  68. 2007 Monday: Four years ago, this very day, President George W. Bush stood on the deck of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln and said- regarding the invasion of Iraq- “Mission accomplished.”  Almost as soon as the words spilled out of his mouth, the insurgency broke out and claimed more U.S. lives than the invasion did.  Anyhow, President Bush vetoed an Iraq War funding bill because included within it was more downtime between tours in the godforsaken country as well as increased training, better equipping, and hardcore benchmarks the Iraqi government had to meet.  The more we look back at events such as this, the more we believe George W. Bush did a HORRIBLE thing and that the Deep State and the Neocons propelled him into it.  We must always think of our servicemen-and-women ahead of regime change wars, especially when they are undeclared, and the entire nation is not behind the effort.  Meanwhile, a May Day pro-illegal alien immigration rally goes awry in the City of Angels today as out-of-control illegal alien loves got their asses beat by the LAPD.  Go for it.  
  69. 2008 Wednesday: Why this should matter to the United States is beyond us but President George W.

  70. 2009 Thursday: U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter announced his retirement effective at the end of the court’s term in late June.   Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than peaceful marches turning into violent mobs?  Violence breaks out in the streets of Germany, Greece, and Turkey where cops try to quell mob violence to the best of their abilities.  What is it with the communists?  Can’t they do anything without launching violent attacks on people who have nothing with which to do with them?  WTF?
  71. 2010 Friday: The Washington Post publishes a story in which, two retired U.S. Army generals tell the reporter that the U.S. military is having a tough time with 25-percent of the population being obese and ‘too fat to fight.’  Perhaps we should return to a draft and get these punks back in shape?   Meanwhile, some member of the ‘religion of peace’ sets off a bomb inside a Mogadishu mosque sending at least two dozen people to visit with Allah sooner than they had anticipated.
  72. 2011 Saturday: At Abbottabad, Pakistan, U.S. Special Forces’ Seal Team Six locate and kill the most wanted terrorist in the world, Osama bin Laden along with several others who attempted to defend him.   Late in the evening, U.S. President Barack Obama announces that American military operatives killed Osama bin Laden, founder of the militant Islamist group Al-Qaida.  Former President George W.

  73. 2012 Tuesday: On the first anniversary of the slaying of long-sought jihadist Osama Bin Laden, President Barack Obama lands in Kabul, Afghanistan, on an unannounced visit.  There, he meets with Afghan President Hamid Karzai.  The two sign an agreement that outlines cooperation between the two nations in the War on Terror through 2014.  Meanwhile, as the Saudi ambassador to Egypt is moving around Cairo, Egyptian authorities foil an attempted assassination attempt against him by the Iranians.  Light those fools up.

Human Rights Office determines that it is a violation of international law to force-feed hunger strikers at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay prison.  Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, the Boston police scoop up three close friends of the bombers who provided them aid and comfort.  Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, a May Day celebration causes the celebrants to run amok, attacking police, breaking glass, and setting things ablaze.  Nearly a dozen cops are injured in the melees around the city.  That’s communists for you.
  75. 2014 Thursday: According to Brainy History, Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Mulally, will retire in July and that Mark Fields will replace him; Mulally restored profitability and distinguished the company as the only Big Three automaker to refuse government bailouts during the 2008-2009 recession.  Elsewhere, as Vladimir Putin’s thugs continue trying to snip off the eastern portion of Ukraine- cos, don’t you know- a whole lotta Russians supposedly live there- Kiev orders a return to conscription, what we Americans call the draft.  IF only the Obama administration would provide these guys with weapons.
  76. 2015 Friday: According to Brainy History, Elon Musk, head of Tesla Motors, announces the formation of Tesla Energy, a producer of large batteries for storage of generated renewable energy in homes and businesses.  Elsewhere, in Jalisco state in Mexico, narcoterrorists knock a Mexican military helicopter out of the sky.  In the ensuing crash, three Mexican soldiers are killed outright while another 10 soldiers and a pair of Federales suffer injuries to varying degrees.  Meanwhile, Maryland State Attorney Marilyn Mosby says that the six officers involved in the death of criminal Freddie Gray were negligent in their duties.   These six officers of the Baltimore Police Department will find themselves in court.

  78. 2017 Monday: Musician Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins fame announces he will purchase the National Wrestling Alliance.   Elsewhere, Kim Jong Un goes berserk as the U.S. flies two B-1B heavy bombers over the Korean Peninsula causing the ‘Brave Leader’ to bellow that the Trump administration is preparing for nuclear war against his country.  Meanwhile, what’s Paris, France, without RIOTS on May Day?  That’s what they get as mobs of protesters- supposedly preparing for upcoming elections- run amok in the streets causing riot police to fire tear gas and rubber bullets into the seething crowd.
  79. 2018 Tuesday: Another one bites the dust: the Dominican Republic, under pressure from the Chi-Coms, severs ties with Taiwan and opens diplomatic relations with Beijing.   Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than communists and socialists running amok in the streets?  In France, Paris sees some violent demonstrations what with car dealerships and fast-food restaurants being set ablaze.  Not good.  Maybe the authorities should utilize some lead on these scumbags?  Just saying.
  80. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr sits before the Senate Judiciary Committee, so he shag questions on HOW he handled the fraudulent Robert S. Mueller III report into ‘Trump-Russia collusion,’ since proven to be little more than a hoax.  Meanwhile, WikiLeaks founder receives a sentence of 50 weeks in a British slammer over his skipping bail back in 2012.  After that…he could be on his way to the United States.  Elsewhere, following the leak of a defense council meeting in Great Britain regarding the danger communist China’s Huawei poses the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May fires her Secretary of State Defense Gavin Williamson, blaming him for the leak.
  81. 2020 Friday: COVID-19 continues running amok and communist China continues acting like the Sgt. Schultz character on the old B & W TV show, “Hogan’s Heroes,” “We know nothing, we know nothing.”  Okay, be like that.  Anyhow, here are today’s statistics: around the globe, we have 3,033,296 confirmed cases of this mess, 235,290 confirmed deaths but 1,039,588 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,128,460 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu, 65,435 confirmed deaths, and 137,944 confirmed recoveries.  If you notice, confirmed deaths in the U.S. rose only 1,897 over the course of today while confirmed recoveries rose by 9,508 so folks, WTF?  Far-left fascist governors, quit behaving like you work in China and not the United States- that means you, Ralph Northam, which means you, Gretchen Whitmer, that means you, northeast liberal lunatic governors and that means you, J.B. Pritzker.  STOP behaving like Nazis!

Currently, Joe is shy 185,892 deaths. 
  84. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,744,182 confirmed cases, 61,865 confirmed deaths, and 1,992,932 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,238,937 confirmed cases, 35,239 confirmed deaths, and 1,799,224 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,468 confirmed cases, 483 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 406,753 confirmed cases, 5,563 confirmed deaths, and 191,652 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Hampshire, a once reliable DEEP RED state before the Democratic-Socialists corrupted it: they have 95,163 confirmed cases, 1,304 confirmed deaths, and 91,400 confirmed recoveries.[xii]   Meanwhile, CNN is reporting that the U.S. has managed to secure ONE BILLION DOSES of Chi-Vi vaccines which has led medical ethicists to suggest we should share them with the world.  Please do.  We don’t want them.  Elsewhere, BOTH Joe Biden and the GOP is trying to push the American people to get the shots.  This reminds us of when the U.S. military was forcing the troops to get injections with which to combat anthrax before invading Iraq and many service personnel had issues with the vaccines.  NOT for us.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he continues masking up even though the Centers for Disease Control now say that we don’t other than on specific occasions. 
  85. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,481 confirmed cases, 6,363 confirmed deaths, and 830,625 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Armenia, perhaps the greatest of all Christian countries in the Middle East/Central Asia: 216,586 cases of the virus, 4,128 confirmed deaths and 199,155 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]

  88. 2021 Saturday F: Political News I–  For some unknown reason (yeah, right), Democrats won’t get behind Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley’s bill with which to rein in BIG TECH.  The Dems are in bed with BIG TECH.  Next, legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the FBI raid on Rudy Giuliani’s townhouse was “UNCONSTITUTIONAL.”  Next (and we sincerely doubt this) the Democrats are acting as though they are willing to make concessions on the infrastructure bill they are trying to ramrod through Congress.    Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘D.C. statehood should not be granted through unilateral congressional action but through the amendments process as it should.’  The Democrats are angry.
  89. 2021 Saturday G: Political News II– Former U.S. Secretary for the Interior Ryan Zinke is going to run for one of Montana’s new U.S. House seats.  Elsewhere, the liberals are ginning up a buzz about U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer possibly going into retirement.  Boy, does the left want to get this guy off the nation’s high court so they can emplace another piece of fecal matter on the court such as the always-angry Stacey Abrams (God forbid).  Meanwhile, at a Utah state GOP convention, the good people of that state booed U.S. Senator Mitt Romney, RINO.  Good.   Finally, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom knows he is going to lose in November’s recall election because he is releasing 76,000 violent and repeat state prison offenders early.  He wants to make sure the people of the Golden State suffer at the hands of these Untermensch.   Thank you, governor, thank you.
  90. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– North Korea says that the Biden regime’s actions suggest the United States wants war with the Democratic Republic of North Korea.  Joe is taking us backward.   Elsewhere, further west in the scenic countryside of Afghanistan’s eastern Logar province, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ conducted a car bombing that propelled 27 unfortunate souls to the ‘other side’ while leaving many more suffering to one degree or another.  Many of the poor bastards were high school students.  Wow.  The Taliban are now warning of counterattacks on U.S. forces as today was the day for total withdrawal.[xxi]  Meanwhile, regarding the Bat Flu vaccine, Canada is putting a halt on the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to contamination fears at the manufacturing plant.  And the liberals SWEAR that the anxieties of vaccine receivers is what has led to blood clots and other reported problems and NOT the vaccine.  Yeah, right.  We’re with you, Canada.
  91. 2021 Saturday I: Miscellaneous News I– California is trying to get their hands on incarcerated Harvey Weinstein but the extradition request currently in on hold.  He is going nowhere (although we are surprised that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden’s regime has not yet sprung a fellow groper).   Next, the U.S. Army’s investigation into the death of Specialist Vanessa Guillen has determined that she was sexually abused, reported the abuse as she should to her superiors, and that nothing was done about it.  This is beginning to sound like the movie, “A Few Good Men” (1992) because at least 20-plus people at Fort Hood, Texas, are in trouble for this case and several similar other cases.  What is wrong with our military?   Elsewhere, citizens of the Empire State will soon see their electricity bills skyrocket as the last reactor- Indian Point 3- at the nuclear power plant closed today.  What is wrong with people?  Nuclear energy is the safest and cheapest way of creating electricity, but the Green Meanies have everyone terrified of nuclear power plants (thank you, “The China Syndrome” (1979).   Finally, in the era of feeble Joe Biden, both CNN and MSNBC have seen their ratings precipitously fall to the point where WE hope they go broke. 
  92. 2021 Saturday J: Mass Shootings News– In Green Bay, Wisconsin, tonight, people were having an enjoyable time at the Oneida Casino when a gunman strolled in and began blasting the place.  Several people were shot but at press time, the authorities had not yet shared information on the status of the victims.  The cops did get their hands on the shooter, however.  Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, today was a deadly day with two people shot and killed and another dozen shout and wounded.  We await status on these victims, too.  What is it in the era of Joe Biden that shootings are occurring all over the flipping place?  What is it about drooling Joe Biden? 
  93. 2021 Saturday K: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3556 with a $43 million jackpot on the line: 01, 06, 13, 22, 31, and Mega 13.  Out of 136,144 winning tickets, 23 people had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $945 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #842 with a $129 million jackpot up for the taking: 35, 36, 47, 61, 63, and Powerball 03.  Out of 64,388 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,331 apiece.

[i] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

[ii] When we do the music of Blood, Sweat & Tears, we will also do the music of Chicago at the same time.  Years ago, at the Google Blogger blog, we did the music of the third great horn band, Sons of Champlin. 

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

[iv] As is the norm, we visit Martin Windrow’s amazing book, “The Last Valley,” De Capo Press (2006) as well as Time-Life Books for relevant information on this critical fight against communism.

[v] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

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

[vii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.  The album on which, “Brown Sugar” appeared- “Sticky Fingers”- was offered on Wednesday, 13-April-2016.  It was a wonderful addition to the band’s discography; we hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best rock music.

[viii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[ix]We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  Seeing as how Fleetwood Mac was among the earliest bands we ever promoted, we will have to pick them back up and present not only the music of the band that has come out since then but also the individual member’s solo projects.

[xxi] Sadly, we believe this is all by design because we believe the Military-Industrial-Political Complex does not want to pull out of this s—hole country.  Too much money is to be made supplying the military with the tools of the trade which means we want a ‘Gulf of Tonkin Incident’ to occur so decrepit old Joe Biden can mumble into a microphone, “We can’t leave.  We must stay and fight this evil” which means another generation of American youth will continue being killed and maimed.  WTF does it take to end a frigging war.  The new corporate form of government has been with us since George W. Bush took us to war in Iraq over NOTHING and will remain here until the American people stand up and say, “WE AREN’T GOING TO TAKE THIS CRAP ANYMORE.”  As an old man, I, Moses Scharbug III, most likely won’t be able to see it but I sure hope successive generations do.  This crap must end.

  50. 2005 Sunday: Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao floats an idea to India, suggesting that the two rivals put past tensions between the two countries behind them and work at pooling resources and talent to become leading IT developers and manufacturers.  Doing so would signify the coming of the Asian Century.  No word from New Delhi.
  51. 2006 Monday: Illegal aliens across the United States take to the streets protesting a new bill, H.R. 4437 which would transform all illegal aliens in the country into felons.  Question: if hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens can pour out of the shadows and roam the streets, why are Border Patrol officers out there scooping them up, putting them in cages, and then deporting them back to whence the f**k they came?  This is what nations that love themselves do.  DO IT NOW.
  52. 2007 Tuesday: The U.S. government authorizes nearly $60 million for the Palestinian Authority.  How about this: how about NOT giving them the money?  They use it to commit terrorist attacks on Israel, not for the betterment of their people.  Elsewhere, all hell is breaking out in Baghdad.  The U.S. and Iraqi forces are fighting terrorists and scumbags and are planning to construct a wall around the Sunni neighborhoods in the capital city seeing as how much of the terrorism is coming from the Shia majority.

  56. 2011 Sunday: Following a show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the band U 2’s[v] tour, 360 degrees, becomes the highest grossing music tour of all time.  Elsewhere, the People’s Republic of China reports its first trade deficit in six years blaming the rising costs of commodities.
  57. 2012 Tuesday: The American company Apple, Inc. announces it is worth over $600 billion dollars, making the technology company the largest in the world by market capitalization.  Meanwhile, in the GOP presidential primary race, Senator Rick Santorum suspends his candidacy on this date which leaves Gov. Mitt Romney the overwhelming favorite to win the nomination to contest Barack Hussein Obama for the White House.
  58. 2013 Wednesday: The United States, Jordan, and Canada boycott a meeting of the U.N. General Assembly organized by former Serbian foreign minister, Vuk Jeremic.  Meanwhile, tensions on the Korean Peninsula continue to rise as South Korea and the United States raise threat levels and the People’s Republic of China and North Korea clamp down on border crossings.  This is back when the PRC was sort of working with regional countries and the U.S. to contend with North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
  59. 2014 Thursday: The head of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, announces that his company will begin selling its luxury electric cars in China later this month.  Meanwhile, around Aleppo, Syria, home of ISIS, 88 people die and scores of others are injured when the Syrian air force drops a series of barrel bombs on the city.  This of course drives liberals loony tunes as they think the use of barrel bombs is somehow a horrible thing.  Look, killing people is a horrible thing, what difference does it make if barrel bombs do the killing or President Barack Hussein Obama indiscriminately drones people all over the world sans any type of trial?
  60. 2015 Friday: As ISIS continues spreading terror throughout the Middle East, jihadists in Baghdad carry out a suicide bombing killing several people and wounding loads of others.  It appears that President Barack Obama has no ideas as how to combat this evil scourge of jihad evil.  We say, “Neutron bomb.  Painless.  Simple.  Quick.  Cheap.”
  61. 2016 Sunday: Three bigwigs of the pro-Democracy movement in Hong Kong- Agnes Chow, Nathan Law, and Joseph Wong form a new political movement to fight for the freedom of their fellow Hong Kongese from communist China.  Meanwhile, as the international committee led by U.S. Secretary of State John F. (Flipping) Kerry tries to coerce Iran into making the ‘deal only if they agree to discuss their missile programs,’ Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif says ‘any discussion of his nation’s missile systems will NOT happen.’
  62. 2017 Monday: The 113th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, nominated by President Donald J. Trump, takes his place on the court on this date.  The swearing in ceremony took place at the White House.  Associate Justice would take the place of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia who died last year.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms detain a political activist from Taiwan, Lee Ming-che, claiming he endangered Chi-Com national security along with his wife.  
  63. 2018 Tuesday: So-called “Boy Wonder,” Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, begins testifying before the U.S. Congress regarding data harvesting, lack of privacy for the social media giant’s users, and misuse of said data.   Elsewhere, the Israeli government announces the findings of its investigation into the death of a jihadist on the other side of the Gaza border fence.  A sniper put the thug down- someone identified as a Hamas terrorist- with one shot which is ruled a ‘clean kill.’  However, the soldiers who filmed the incident and then celebrated it are told not to behave like that.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: On this date, one of the most amazing photos to come out of the Event Horizon Telescope depicts a BLACK HOLE in 2017 in galaxy M87, approximately 6.5 billion times the mass of Earth and about 55 million light years distant.  Absolutely amazing!  Elsewhere, anyone on Medicare in the United States has had salespeople calling them up, telling them they are ‘eligible for back braces for their pain.’  All one must do is to give their information to these scoundrels.  Well, the federal government charges 24 scumbags for Medicare fraud, not a good thing, because these people were pushing back braces to many who did not need them and billing the feds for $1.2 billion for not only the back braces but other durable equipment medical devices.   Finally, the 6th U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen left office on this date.  She served under President Donald J. Trump from December 06, 2017, until today.
  65. 2020 Friday: China’s grand gift to the rest of the world, the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis continues claiming lives and ruining economies.  Currently, we have 1,699,632 confirmed cases of this hellacious disease what with 102,734 confirmed deaths and 376,330 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 502,876 confirmed cases what with 18,747 confirmed deaths and another 27,314 confirmed recoveries.   Around the world, pain, suffering, and death continue and it’s all because of two guilty culprits: communist China and the World Health Organization that continues to carry water for the communist nation.  President Trump informed the world today that the United States puts $500 million into the coffers of the corrupt organization every year while the People’s Republic of China puts in a measly $40-50 million per year yet the W.H.O. continues doing Beijing’s bidding.  This will have to change and the only way it will is when the United States returns to the Two-China Policy and recognizes Taiwan as a full member state of the U.N. and gives them back their seat on the Security Council.
  66. 2021 Saturday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden says he is going to maintain the current level of funding for the U.S. military, he is going to funnel it through Pine Island Acquisitions Corporation which is a major lobbying tailor-made for doing Deep State business with the federal government supplying its military needs (and most likely, to re-route money back around to liberal Democrats- the classic money-go-round.  However, what exactly the military is going to do other than to root out conservatism in the ranks is unclear because his Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki declared ‘the Biden administration WON’T confront communist China.’  Why would they?  The Chi-Coms fund the entire Biden clan.   Finally, Joe Biden is going to convene a ‘chip summit’ so we can find a way to eradicate our chip shortage.  Whoa, Joe.
  67. 2021 Saturday A: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, says that Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the border crisis.  He labels it a horrible ‘humanitarian crisis.’   Meanwhile, as this self-inflicted crisis continues, the Biden administration is going to continue housing illegal aliens at hotels in border cities (and elsewhere across the country).  (Note- Chefs Lilah and Itzi says that flights bringing illegals into Honolulu is indeed happening although they are doing their best to keep it quiet.  They say it’s the same as when President Obama was in office and states were giving their homeless populations one-way tickets to the islands.  NOT good).  
  68. 2021 Saturday B: JUDICIAL SYSTEM NEWS– following U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer saying yesterday that ‘packing the court is not the way to go,’ tens of thousands of raving lunatic leftists are out in the streets demanding that Justice Breyer step down now.  This is what you get when you coddle at least two generations by not giving them the belt across their asses when they cause problems as kids- you get a bunch of whiny, sniveling young people who behave like spoiled brats.  You know what Ichabod Crane said in “The Headless Horseman”- ‘spare the rod and spoil the child.’  Folks, instead of these worthless c***suckers canceling us, how about we cancel the living Bejeezus out of them?  It’s US or THEM.  Keep your seat, Justice Breyer, we may not agree with you on much, but this is flipping crazy.  In other court news, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s Gestapo-like order preventing home Bible study during the pandemic.  When can we recall this POS?  (Note- Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the libs on the court.  What a mistake he was).  In other news, famed legal scholar and professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV that the Dems are indeed doing their best to ‘stack the court.’
  69. 2021 Saturday C: 2020 ELECTION FRAUD, CORRUPTION, THEFT, AND FOREIGN INTERFERENCE NEWS– Governor Christopher T. Sununu, R-N.H., says he will sign an order to look into the voting machines used in the last election.  Word has it they flipped a lot of GOP votes to Democrats.  Is it not amazing how this just seemed to happen across the country?  And they claim there was NO election interference.   Elsewhere, after being ordered to remove the dead voters from the state’s voter rolls due to a court order, Pennsylvania announces they are going to clean up their voter rolls.  Isn’t this amazing, too, how when courts intervene on behalf of the voters, things start getting cleaned up?  NO wonder they still have “Fort Pelosi” up in Washington, D.C.   (Note- although the ‘un-elected governor of Georgia- Stacey Abrams once supported similar laws to what Georgia now has, she no longer does.  Too bad).
  70. 2021 Saturday D: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– Iranian leadership was all excited today touring a new centrifuge facility that will enrich uranium 50-times faster than they currently are.  Moreover, the good thing about it, it’s all for ‘peaceful purposes’ or so these lying scumbags claim.  Seems about time for another worm infecting their centrifuges to occur.  We know Joe Biden won’t do it so it’s up to the Israelis.  Next, the Chi-Coms have hit Alibaba with a $2.8 billion antitrust suit.  How does this work in a ‘communist country?’  It’s nice they pretend like they have laws when in fact, there is BUT ONE LAW- whatever dictator Xi Jinping says.
  71. 2021 Saturday E: RINO REPUBLICAN NEWS– It would appear that Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell has some residual guilt left from sticking the dagger in President Donald J. Trump’s neck by voting NOT to convict #45 in his second impeachment trial and then saying that ‘Trump was responsible for the False Flag Operation the Dems and their storm-troopers ran on January 06, 2021.’  Senator McConnell says that Joe Biden is ‘caving to the left on packing the U.S. Supreme Court and ending the filibuster.’  His good friend, Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, echoes his boss by ripping the Dems on their scheme to ‘pack the court’ and to ‘end the filibuster.’  (Note- these guys are hoping we will forget their RINO politics and their traitorous behavior towards a president who did what neither of them have ever been able to accomplish: #45 kept his word).   In REAL Republican news, Jason Miller says that ‘Donald Trump is still the head of the GOP no matter how much the RINO scum wants him NOT to be).
  72. 2021 Saturday F: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 135,030,164 confirmed cases, +991,984, 2,920,537  confirmed deaths, +15,983, and 76,746,058 confirmed recoveries, +557,436.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,348,231 confirmed cases, UP 140,461 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,142 confirmed deaths, UP 1,635, and 118,914,896 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.[vi]

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.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned to action following a bout with cancer and reformed his band.  The subsequent release is “The Midnight Ramble Sessions, Volume II” (August 16, 2006).  Joining the drummer/vocalist, were Little Sammy Davis (vocals/harmonica), Larry Campbell  (guitars), Dr. John (pianos), Michael Merritt (bass), and several others.  Davis is the vocalist and front man for the group seeing as how Helm was recovering from throat cancer which is amazing because the band roars through a set of blues tunes that leave one’s head ablaze and ears a-smoking.  Levon manages to do some vocals which is good.  We hope that you will investigate this one to your heart’s content and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and enjoy.  It’s amazing, of that we guarantee.

71. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 12, 2022

1954 Friday: In French Indochina, the French Union troops stationed at Dien Bien Phu are aware that enemy activity surrounding their various outlying strongpoints is increasing. The People’s Army is digging approach trenches in the daylight so that when the attack begins tomorrow afternoon, the Viet Minh will be able to approach undercover of their trenches to just outside the barbed wire perimeters. French patrols are encountering more stiffening enemy resistance and a few captured prisoners tell them it’s coming tomorrow.

  70. 2020 Thursday: CPUSA candidate, oh wait, he is running as a Democrat, Sen. Bernie Sanders goes to the mics in Burlington, VT, and does his best to scare the hell out of the American people.  His solution to the Wuhan Virus, aka COVID-19, a gift from China to the rest of the world all because they took it where the sun don’t shine when they signed the U.S.-China trade deal, is for the American people to immediately embrace Marxism as run and defined by him.  Following upon the heels of the NBA canceling its season, the NHL does the same.  Major League Baseball has motioned that spring training could be on the rocks, too, if not the entire season.  What should be clear to ALL is that the LEFT never lets a good crisis go to waste and anything that will enable them to advance socialism and big government even further is in their wheelhouse.  So far, ONLY 39 Americans have succumbed to the Wuhan Virus, most of them in a Washington state nursing home.  If you have ever worked in such a facility, you would understand WHY this tragic statistic is so.  Of course- according to Bernie and his fellow Democrats, the Trump administration is STUPID and incapable of doing anything to thwart the Chinese-transmitted virus.  In the spirit of everything, we encourage the president to postpone the election until ALL is clear.
  71. 2021 Friday: Today is Day 52 of the Biden Regime.  Not good, folks, not good.  Stick around to discover the truth with us.  First, Democrats and liberals are celebrating the AMAZING SPEECH delivered by “Vegetable Joe” Biden last night, a speech in which, he takes full credit for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  Oh, Joe managed to stumble through 23 minutes of a speech- obviously on teleprompter- and managed to walk to and from the speech down the lengthy hall without falling flat on his space.  As Dick Morris told Newsmax TV, ‘Joe Biden is the rooster taking credit for the sunrise.’  Dick’s right.  Never have we seen something so pathetic, so lackluster, so impotent in our lives.  The enemies of our nation must be wondering how they were so lucky to get this feeble, drooling old fool into the White House.  This is not good for the United States. 
  72. 2021 Friday A: Apparently, the accusers of New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo are facing harassment online.  Sounds like something the Goombah Governor would have his flunkies do.  We hope they go to jail, too.  Speaking of “Killer Cuomo,” Democrats in New York such as the “Baby Evita,” aka Alexandria Ocasio, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, and overweight Jerrold Nadler (along with 10 other House Dems)- along with Big Apple Mayor Bill Di Blasio- are all demanding the beleaguered Empire State governor step down, NOW.  Still, “Killer Cuomo” says, ‘I ain’t going nowhere, I have a job to do.’  Listen moron: the longer you fight this, the worse it’s going to be for you.  LEAVE NOW, especially now that yet another accuser has stepped forward. 
  73. 2021 Friday B: As illegal aliens swamp the southern border and as concerned Americans begin gearing up to head to the border to repel the invasion, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says, “Crisis, what crisis?”  The octogenarian speaker never met an illegal alien she didn’t love.  Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says, “the Biden administration must address the crisis on the southern border.”  Wow.  You go, Chuck, you go!   In other crooked Democratic Party news, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez Jr., D-TX 15th congressional district, even as he urged the United States to divest from the People’s Republic of China maintained a Chi-Com bank account of between $100,000 to $250,000.  Typical Democrat, talking out of both sides of his face.  
  74. 2021 Friday C: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the city of Austin, Texas, for refusing to follow Governor Greg Abbot’s order to terminate ALL mask mandates within the Lone Star State.  Austin is like liberal pus-filled sore in an otherwise DEEP RED Texas.  Go get ‘em, AG Paxton!   Elsewhere, the state of Kentucky’s Senate passes a bill that would criminalize taunting of all law enforcement officers.  Excellent.   Next, New York prosecutor Cyrus Vance Jr., the man ‘investigating President Donald J. Trump,’ says he won’t run for another term. 
  75. 2021 Friday D: Following the disastrous interview with Oprah Winfrey, popularity polls show that Mr. and Mrs. Meghan Markle are dropping fast.  Listening to Meghan Markle snivel and whine about the family that took her in and made her one of them is not only disgusting but traitorous.  Their sickening actions should cancel both her and her husband, the Person formerly known as Prince Harry, to undergo CANCELATION for good, IF the Cancel Culture actually pursued losers.  Finally, Geraldo “Al Capone’s Vault” Rivera says he’s NOT going to seek Senator Rob Portman’s seat in November 2022.
  76. 2021 Friday E: The City of Minneapolis settles for $27 million with the family of George Floyd.  Family attorney and race-baiter Benjamin Crump gets up there and continues blasting those who made it possible.  This guy never saw a pot of racial confrontation he did not want to stir.  The autopsy showed that Mr. Floyd was full of drugs and that his body showed no signs of fatal physical injuries as the prosecution alleges fired M. P. D. Officer Derek Chauvin and three other officers caused the low-level thug.  We still believe Keith Ellison- Minnesota’s AG- is going to blow this case and even with 3rd degree murder charges restored to the pantheon of charges upon which, the prosecution hopes to win a conviction.  No, AG Ellison is going to become a goat.     
  77. 2021 Friday F: Former U.S. Green Beret Army Captain Jeffrey MacDonald, age 77, is seeking release from prison on compassionate grounds.  MacDonald has been in prison for more than 40 years now having been convicted of killing his pregnant wife and two daughters on February 17, 1970.  He has sought release before and has always claimed innocence in the matter, stating that a band of violent hippies murdered his family.   No motive has ever been presented of which, we know, but the Army captain received three consecutive life sentences, nevertheless. 
  78. 2021 Friday G: Arizona five-term Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, D-2nd congressional district, announces that she won’t be seeking another term in Congress.   In other news, the Biden administration is holding talks with Israel, discussing Iran and other regional issues.  Speaking of ‘Joe Biden,’ Ric Grenell says the fact that Vice President Kamala Harris is holding talks with world leaders is extremely troubling.   In other Joe Biden news, he wants every American to be eligible for the vaccines President Donald J. Trump created to combat the Chi-Vi by May 01, 2021.  In other news of interest, President Trump’s COVID-19 coordinator (and backstabber) Dr. Deborah Birx, is leaving government service and going to work for a Texas air purifier company.  Good riddance.  
  79. 2021 Friday H: Host of the Summer Olympics, Japan refuses the offer of a Chi-Com offer of a Bat Flu vaccine.  So would we. WHO is stupid enough to take a vaccine from the country that set the pandemic in motion?  WTF?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com-run World Health Organization is investigating the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine following reports of coagulation problems and pulmonary embolisms reported in several European Union countries such as the Netherlands, Austria, Norway, Denmark, and Italy.  We are not advocating anyone take this crap, especially the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that uses fetal tissue harvested from abortions both in its manufacture and its testing.  The Catholic Church even warned Catholics worldwide to avoid this POS vaccine.[ix]
  80. 2021 Friday I: As we continue learning of all the PORK in the $1.9 trillion Chi-Vi relief bill, the more shocking it becomes what with inmates on death row and illegal aliens qualifying for ‘stimulus checks.’  Add to that more than $350 billion to bail out BLUE STATE GOVERNMENTS AND LOCALES and one can see the making of yet another Obama-Biden Era PORKULUS in which, the federal government always had on hand a big slush fund with which to fund their supporters in a perpetual money-go-round all the while the citizens of the country suffer.   Imagine, the mayor of Portland, Oregon, Teddy Wheeler, wants several million so he can rebuild his tattered and abandoned police force.  Still, the bill directs $268 billion to education even as schools in many parts of the country refuse to reopen.  Additional hundreds of millions of dollars will flow to Planned Parenthood, to Obamacare exchanges, and to every other left-wing liberal load of hooey Democrats love. 
  81. 2021 Friday J: CNN’s ratings continue to collapse sans President Donald J. Trump in the White House and after seeing porcine loser Brian Stelter sitting in his skivvies with his laptop’s camera lens focused on his crotch area while he does the news, NO wonder.  Did we see him sitting in his drawers either before or after ‘pulling a Toobin?’[x]  What is it with these sick left-wing losers?  Put your pants on you pudgy pig.
  82. 2021 Friday K: Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, and Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, say that Joe Biden and ONLY Joe Biden bears complete responsibility for the disaster befalling our southern border and Customs and Border Patrol officers fighting to stem the massive tide of illegals seeking to invade the country.    In other news, the Quadrilateral Nations- aka ‘Quad Nations (United States, Japan, India, and Australia)- are meeting to discuss countermeasures against the Chi-Coms who are becoming a REGIONAL adversary in the Indo-Pacific Region.

  84. 2021 Friday M: 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: 3,614,568 confirmed cases, 55,138 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases (DOWN from yesterday’s number), 448 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 350,661 confirmed cases, 5,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Montana, aka the Big Sky or Treasure State: currently, they have 101,561 confirmed cases, 1,392 confirmed deaths, and 99,213 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 814,250 confirmed cases, 5,967 confirmed deaths, and 773,545 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Indonesia, the largest Muslim-majority nation on Earth: 1,410,134 cases of the old Hubei Hooey, 38,229 confirmed deaths, and 1,231,254 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, how about their numbers: 90,002 confirmed cases (our sources in Hong Kong say multiply everything by 75,000-percent and add the numbers for a total of 71,358,428 confirmed cases, 3,724,401 confirmed deaths, and 65,835,291 confirmed recoveries- and remember- these are still low-end numbers.  Estimates, of course, because communist nations ALWAYS lie…

Human Rights Council, U.S. Charge d’ Affaires Mark Cassayre blasted the Chi-Coms for their horrid human rights abuses and genocide of the Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang Province, China.  He also lit them up on the crackdown on the free people of Hong Kong.  Of course, the Chi-Coms and the other Third World thugs on the ‘Council’ were outraged.  Who cares?  Speaking of communist thugs, Vladimir Putin had his number one critic, Alexei Navalny, removed from a prison near Moscow and taken to a black site somewhere in Russia.  His lawyer has no clue where the jack-booted Putin thugs took him.  We know the poor guy is serving a 2.5-year sentence for ‘parole violations,’ this after the Putin regime tried to murder the man with Novichok, a Soviet-era poison. 
  89. 2021 Friday R: Questions continue arising over the recent Joe Biden-authored airstrike on Syria as well as the previous one back in 2018 when President Donald J. Trump was in the White House.  President Trump wanted to pull the U.S. out of needless wars whereas ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden clearly is a deep part of the industrial-military-political complex putting our country at risk.  Syria is indeed a sovereign country, and we have no business attacking them, yet the warmongers behave as though they are the guiding lights of the Roman Empire, fighting perpetual wars, weakening the country by expending countless lives, wealth, and time when the United States should be continuing what President Trump wanted to do and that was to make America great again.  You DON’T see the Chi-Coms wasting blood and treasure to fight bogus wars, no, they are waiting for the day when their nation collides with ours and it’s not going to go well when they do.
  90. 2021 Friday S: The African nation of Nigeria is under assault again, once again by ‘bandits,’ meaning Boko Haram, Islamist thugs.  The so-called ‘armed bandits’ assaulted another town and its school in northwestern Nigeria kidnapping at least 30 students and several staff members carrying them off into the jungle.  The Nigerian government just spent loads of money to get 180 students kidnapped a week or so ago back from the jihadists.   These very same scumbags kidnapped 279 schoolgirls from their school last month.  Sounds like there should be a concerted effort by West African nations to eradicate this scum and to bury their dead bodies with pigs’ blood all over them.
  91. 2021 Friday T: Attacks against Asian Americans continue in heavily Democratic areas around the country, attacks decried by a mumbling, stumbling old Joe Biden last night in his PRIME-TIME ADDRESS.  We have a theory- we believe the Democrats are paying low-economic black Americans to go out and commit these attacks- we have seen film on various news channels and it’s NOT white Americans committing these attacks- so they can then scream and cry about the ‘heinous attacks on our poor Asian-American fellow citizens.’  Look, when you have a party that infiltrates Trump supporters and then engineers an ‘insurrection’ on the nation’s capital, these scumbags will stoop to any low and this would surprise NONE of us.
  92. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

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…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We are unclear as to when we will offer the music of Badfinger, seeing as how we should have promoted them during the lengthy presentation of the Beatles and the band’s various members.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do as this band was among the greats.

[ii] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[iii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.  Hell, we might also do the music of the group’s sisters, too.

[iv] 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.  The debut album occurred on the first day of the presentation.

[v] 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.

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

[vii] 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.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[ix]. We believe the World Health Organization will do what their masters in Beijing direct them to do and that will be to promote the Chi-Com ‘VID vaccine over everyone else’s.  Like we said, we are avoiding the vaccine like facial herpes.

[x] Disgraced newsman Jeffrey Toobin was fired for being caught on a Zoom work call spanking the old wank.  Sick f**k.

  65. 2020 Monday: Following on the exit of Mayor Pete Buttigieg from the Democratic Party’s 2020 Primary Race the day before (which was a shocking surprise), Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar announced her exit from the race today and said she was going to support former Vice President Joe Biden.   Elsewhere, the China Virus continues to spread as various countries from Saudi Arabia, Andorra, Portugal, Ecuador, Morocco, and numerous other countries report their first cases while others like South Korea begin ordering lockdowns and restrictions.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: DAY 42 OF THE BIDEN REGIME: GOD HELP US!  Today, FBI Director Christopher Wray sat before members of the U.S. Senate shagging questions on what we know about the now-infamous Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, the one in which, Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter infiltrators urged on Trump supporters to go berserk, assault the Capitol, and run amok.  Whenever anyone asked Director Wray about LEFTWING violence, such as what occurred over the course of the summer of 2020 and into the fall, he knew little to nothing, but when it came to so-called RIGHTWING violence, he was well-versed.  The Democrats on the Senate panel directed the choir and Director Wray sung loudly, with gusto, to the point that people watching on television had a thought: “It seems Director Wray knows little to nothing  How about next time you want answers from the FBI, why don’t you ask whoever is the TRUE BOSS of the once-proud law enforcement organization?”[vi] 
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Yet another woman comes out and accuses rapidly sinking New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo of behaving in an indecent sexual manner.  It’s gotten to the point that the so-called “Love Gov” has had to offer a half-assed apology of sorts, claiming he’s just a ‘joker,’ that he ‘likes to horse around’ and other such bull crap.  The “Lov Gov” has also hired a criminal defense attorney now that it appears he is in real trouble over his shenanigans with sending COVID-19-infected patients back into the Empire State’s nursing homes where they murdered thousands of elderly and vulnerable people.  Cuomo is in trouble for his executive order that set this horrendous crime in motion, one in which the ill made others sick and then when they were going to DIE, they bundled them into medical transports, took them BACK to the hospitals where they added to the numbers of Chi-Vi deaths in the hospitals and covered up what Cuomo did to the poor people in the nursing homes.  We hope to see this POS wearing an orange jumpsuit busting up rocks soon.
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: The state of Oklahoma is seeking to get the National Rifle Association to relocate to their state.  Meanwhile, the NRA says that the Biden administration wants to bypass the committee process in Congress so it can force harsh gun control measures onto the American people.
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: A recent poll says at least 52-percent of the Grand Old Party want President Donald J. Trump to be the standard-bearer in 2024.  Meanwhile, Wyoming state Senator Anthony Bouchard has officially announced he is going to primary highly unpopular GOP Congresswoman Liz Cheney in 2022.  Unless the Democrats rally to the side of this RINO, her head is going to be gracing the top of the congressman’s fireplace. 
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, calls for a House probe into the “Cancel Culture.” 
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: A recent poll says that Joe Biden has a 61-percent approval rate.  The poll obviously is bulls**t folks because very few have seen the ‘46th president’ stumbling around much less have heard anything he says.  In an era of Deep Fakes, most people except the disciples of all things ‘news’ has seen or heard this illusive guy.  He is akin to trolls living beneath the bridge, pixies and fairies roaming the woods, sprites cavorting about the trees, NO one has seen or heard from him so please, don’t try to scam us with bulls**t polls.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Some people are hopeful the U.S. Supreme Court will weigh in on election laws in Arizona that could affect voting nationwide.  Don’t expect much, folks, the Dems don’t need to stack the U.S. Supreme Court when they have John Roberts as chief justice.  What a failure, what a disgrace, what a letdown the man is. 
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Reports along the southern border say that the tidal wave of illegal alien teens and toddlers swarming across the border is straining facilities with which to house them.   We believe Joe Biden should continue building the wall, that anti-vehicle and anti-personnel trenches should be constructed, barbed wire, minefields, and other obstacles laid in plus the seeding of the Rio Grande with baby alligators scooped up from Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana.  What is occurring on the southern border is a crime and whether you love you some illegal aliens or you don’t, what is happening to these people is inhumane, horrendous, and evil.  Still, the federal government could pay American citizens $2,500 per month to take in one illegal alien brat. 
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is expanding access to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine to all first-responders, law enforcement, K-12 students, and to all who are vulnerable to the Chi-Com Virus.  In other interesting news, Senator Mitt Romney is recovering from a fall that left him black and blue he suffered while visiting family in Boston.  We remember a similar incident when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, turned up all beat up and he claimed exercise equipment got the best of him.  It later turned out that one of his brothers got the ‘best of him.’
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic lawmakers are forging ahead with a plan with which to make Puerto Rico a state.   We already know they’re trying to make the District of Columbia a state which is bull crap.  D.C. was created so that the nation’s capital would NOT be in any particular state.  Ah, well, we say if we’re going to make territories and possessions into states, might as well make the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Marianas, and even Midway Island and the Johnson Atoll into states, too.  We say, WTF?  Imagine ALL the new senators with which, the Democrats could pack the U.S. Senate.  Hell, pretty soon various counties will be breaking apart from states and becoming states of their own.  Again, why NOT?  
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: An SUV in Southern California close to the Mexican border crashed into a semi-tractor-trailer rig.  Inside the SUV were 27 people- ILLEGAL FLIPPING ALIENS, PEOPLE- 15 of whom died in the mishap.  Some say ‘they got what they deserved’ while others say if we had secure borders, illegal aliens stuffed into ‘clown cars’ would not be careening all over the highways, crashing into cars and trucks driven by Americans.  Joe Biden, DEFEND THE F**KING BORDERS!  We don’t want to see people killed on  the nation’s highways but until you act against coyotes and begin imprisoning- if not shooting them on the spot– these kinds of tragedies are going to continue.  ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: In other Joe Biden news, the ‘Biden administration’ is now looking into how to give reparations to black folks because of slavery in the past.  The question is, will ALL blacks qualify for ‘reparations,’ i.e., the modern-day equivalent of ’40 acres and a mule’ updated or will it just be blacks who can prove descent from a slave?  Will all NON-BLACK people, i.e., whites, Latinos, Asians, and Native Americans going to foot the bill or are just white folks going to foot this bill?  In interracial marriages, are white spouses going to be able to scrawl their names on a check and hand it over to the black spouse (or give them the credit card) and will that be the end of it?  What about interracial people who boast numerous bloodlines, how is the federal government going to determine this?  It is insane.  Will the government also inform the recipients of the SLAVE REPARATIONS that they will have to pay taxes on the money they receive?   NOTE- here is what WE say: like the $15 per hour minimum wage, this will never happen because once it does, the issue is removed from the arsenal of leftwing issues, NEVER to be used again.  IF you look at history, answer this question, with honesty- how many problems do liberals ever truly solve?
  78. 2021 Tuesday L: New York state lawmakers have stripped Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the “Love Gov” of his pandemic dictatorial powers.  Whoa.  Dreadful things are coming your way there “Killer Cuomo.”
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 114,706,724 confirmed cases, +356,113, 2,544,852, confirmed deaths, +7,987, and 64,781,391 confirmed recoveries, +250,043.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,998,700 confirmed cases, up 62,539 from yesterday’s reporting, 521,441 confirmed deaths, UP 1,706, and 16,992,502 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 191,256 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!
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,573,588 confirmed cases, 52,521 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: 343,746 confirmed cases, 5,038 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Kansas: currently, they have 397,436 confirmed cases, 4,743 confirmed deaths, and 312,758 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 779,958 confirmed cases, 5,760 confirmed deaths, and 735,850 confirmed recoveries.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: In one of the greatest pieces of news we have had in a long time, Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas says the Lone Star State will be open for business in one week.  ALL businesses, no matter who or what they are, may reopen and even better, the mask mandate is NO more.  Of course, liberals are wetting their panties, but it is what it is, America is coming back.  As soon as we evict losers like Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Lov Gov, of New York, and Frankenstein-headed Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan (all she is missing are the bolts on her neck), the country can reopen wide, and we can move beyond the Chinese Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, American diplomats going to communist China on behalf of the Biden administration are being forced to undergo the fearsome Chi-Com COVID-19 anal swab.  Tell them to go f**k themselves.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, aka COVID-19, the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans is opposed to the Johnson & Johnson Wuhan Virus vaccine because  it uses cells derived from abortions in both its manufacture and its testing.  IF the Catholic Church is against the Johnson & Johnson vaccine then we are against it, too.  Speaking of the J & J vaccine, with only 3.7 million does offered, Merck is stepping in to convert two of its U.S. manufacturing facilities to begin mass-producing and packaging of the vaccine.  As we said, we can wait. 
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,391.52, DOWN 143.99 points (-0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,358.79, DOWN 230.04 points (-1.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,870.29, DOWN 31.53 points (-0.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.80 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,202.20 per troy oz, -12.20 (-1.0\0%) while the price of COPPER is $4.19 per pound, -0.03 (-0.78%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,368.60 per troy oz, +19.60 (+0.83%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.12%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.62.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.85. 
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: The House Democrats continue slamming one bill after another.  Today, they introduced a wide-ranging (and unbelievably expensive, we suspect) climate bill which means MORE slush fund cash for Democrats to stick their hands in.   In other news, FBI Director Christopher Wray won’t release the cause of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick.  Even the family does not know the cause of their husband’s and father’s death.  Many believe he suffered a stroke on January 6, 2021, when he was blasted in the face with bear repellant.  The left wants everyone to believe that Officer Sicknick had his head stoved in with a fire extinguisher, but no evidence of that occurrence exists.  Sadly, he was quickly cremated, and his autopsy records sealed.  Left-wing governments and Islamic extremists ALWAYS require martyrs.[vii]   In other interesting news, far-left hatemonger Neera Tanden is OUT as the next White House Office of Management and Budget boss.  Her past hateful speech in social media came back to bite her on her skinny ass.  Ouch!   Finally, Democrats want to end qualified immunity for police officers.
  85. 2021 Tuesday S: Senator Martin Heinrich, D-NM, and Congressman Darren Soto, D-FL, have authored a bill to fast-track Puerto Rican statehood.  As we have said, just give statehood to Guam, U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Northern Marianas, Johnston Atoll, Midway Island, and other specks in the Pacific Ocean we claim.  Imagine all the senators the Democrats could have.   Meanwhile, Senator Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says, he has the votes to pass the Biden Porkulus $1.9 trillion COVID-19 Relief Bill but hey- still NO $2,000 checks per U.S. citizen. 
  86. 2021 Tuesday T: The National Security Commission says that if the United States does not immediately pick up the pace, the Chi-Coms are going to win the race for artificial intelligence and can then use it to subjugate the rest of the world.  We had better get our act in order.  Elsewhere, the Nigerian military frees 279 kidnapped schoolgirls, seized by Boko Haram from Jangebe Town.  There are questions as to whether the Nigerians paid a ransom for them or not.  Meanwhile, Boko Haram attacked a favorite target of theirs, the town of Dikwa where they have a military outpost and humanitarian aid.  Apparently, the jihadists overran the town.  No word on casualties.  
  87. 2021 Tuesday U: In other Chris Wray news, the FBI director said that ‘several of the more than 300 people arrested for the Capitol Hill Riot of January 06, 2021, have ties to right-wing militias.’  He also said that since he became director in 2017, white extremism threats have more than tripled.  He also said there is NO evidence of fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.  In Texas, a judge was arrested along with some other scumbags for committing election fraud in that state. 
  88. 2021 Tuesday V: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1638 with a jackpot of $43 million on the line: 04, 08, 13, 34, 64, and Mega 18.  Out of 52,291 winning tickets, the highest were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $4,732 apiece.
  89. 2022 Wednesday: Friends, stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The tertiary effort by the Band- “Stage Fright” came out on August 17, 1970, and was a wonderful addition to the band’s growing discography.  Once again, the band featured the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).   The album contained two big hits- the title track and “The Shape I’m In.”  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as there’s nothing better than this glorious group.  Ask anyone who’s seen them in their heyday, and you will understand just how legendary and amazing they were.  You will love them just as we do.  Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY MARCH 02, 2022, BLOG POST #4,464

Tuesday, March 02, 2021, Today in History:

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We definitely hope to present the music of ALL the classic Motown bands- including the famed Four Tops- sometime within the next decade.  Please, stay tuned for further developments.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Todd Rundgren but one day, we sure as heck will so please stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Paris at the same time we did Fleetwood Mac.  Sadly, we will promote Paris when we do Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, and Blodwyn Pig.  Paris created two fine albums in the 1970s.  Besides Sales, the band featured guitarist/vocalist Bob Welch and bassist/keyboardist Glenn Cornick.

[v] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028. 

[vi] Director Wray is one of the most adept practitioners of the fine art of NEVER answering questions.  It should shock everyone concerned how this man seemingly does not know very much about any topic at hand other than that white people are generally the culprits.  Much like Jen Psaki, he either is too ill-informed or unfit for the job held. 

[vii] The Soviets had their Pavlik Morozov, a boy who ratted out his parents as not being down with the struggle.  In every square in every town and city, statues of Pavlik Morozov were erected. 

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

60. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 01, 2022

1971 Monday: Inside a men’s room at the U.S. Capitol, a pre-dawn bomb exploded for which the radical group, the Weathermen claimed responsibility. (This group contained President Barack Obama’s future friend, Bill Ayres).
