170. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JUNE 19, 2022

2020 Friday: Desperate Democrats in Tulsa, Oklahoma, rush to their state’s supreme court to demand it STOP the planned Trump rally in that city tomorrow night. They cite concerns over the ‘possible spread’ of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu while saying NOTHING about the rioters and protesters who are going to attempt to disrupt the president’s rally. The court told them to go pound sand. Interesting side note: one of the lawyers seeking the injunction just so happened to be of Stormy Daniels’ legal team which included POS convicted felon, Michael Avenatti.

  58. 2018 Tuesday: U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley announces the United States is pulling out of the farcical U.N. Human Rights Commission because all of the worst human rights abusers in the world sit on this once respectable body.  Should have done it sooner!  Meanwhile, the Canadian Senate by a vote of 52-29 passes the ‘Cannabis Act of 2018,’ one that will permit its citizens to light up, get stoned, and zone out.  That’s always beneficial for a nation…
  59. 2019 Wednesday: The United Nations announces that 70-percent of the world’s population are displaced, refugees, or ‘asylum seekers,’ the highest number in seven decades, well, since the end of World War II.  Now, here’s the question: why isn’t the world body doing what it is supposed to be doing and improving the lives of people living in S-hole nations by stopping wars, purges, communist takeovers, and the like?  Crickets…Elsewhere, the Japanese navy finds itself busy around the clock pushing back North Korean fishing boats trying to poach in its territorial waters. 
  60. 2020 Friday: Desperate Democrats in Tulsa, Oklahoma, rush to their state’s supreme court to demand it STOP the planned Trump rally in that city tomorrow night.  They cite concerns over the ‘possible spread’ of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu while saying NOTHING about the rioters and protesters who are going to attempt to disrupt the president’s rally.  The court told them to go pound sand.  Interesting side note: one of the lawyers seeking the injunction just so happened to be of Stormy Daniels’ legal team which included POS convicted felon, Michael Avenatti.  Meanwhile, Texas Senator John Cornyn, R-TX, presents a bill to make Juneteenth a federal paid holiday.

  64. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,177 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.

  70. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, this is Day #88 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and to have yet shown up for one day’s work on the job.  Meanwhile Texas prison authorities are moving inmates from facilities near the border with Mexico so they can begin stuffing them full of criminal illegal aliens.  Good.  Bring in former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio and have him construct tent jails in the desert with which to house the more than 1 million illegals who have flooded into the country since January 1.  Feed them peanut butter sandwiches on stale bread and give them pink underwear to wear as he did during his time as sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, January 01, 1993-to-January 01, 2017.  He also brought chain gangs back and imagine- if we have to house all these illegal aliens, they had better earn their keep or continue languishing in intense desert conditions in tent cities.
  71. 2021 Saturday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The demands that slobbering Joe Biden replace his so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris continue increasing as Republican and even some border state Democrats are demanding someone with the ability to do the job take over from “Willie Brown’s well-used mattress.”   A new report says that more than 186,000 illegals crossed the border in May.  Here are the stats as presented by One America News for today: (1) Cost this Day Alone for caring for all these illegal aliens: $1,084,754,176.  (2) Cost this YEAR for caring for all these illegal aliens: $186,290,274,304.  (3) Total illegals who have crossed in 2021: 1,909,326.  (4) Total number of illegal aliens estimated to be in the country: 35,909,324.  One America News compiles these stats from the following sources: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT.  (Note- since the inception of the blog back in 2009, we have said there were between 35-50 million illegals in the country back then; we now believe the number is closer to 75-100 million and we could find ourselves in a national emergency if all these people were suddenly to go to war against us).  Regarding the tidal wave of illegal aliens, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, says that the chain of mass migration into the United States MUST be broken.
  72. 2021 Saturday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe III– As the Biden-caused border calamity continues, cartel gunmen in the Mexican border town of Reynosa killed at least 18 people in multiple shootings and injured countless others.  Just another day in the life of the fraudulent Biden-Harris regime.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Hardcore jihadist nut Ibrahim Raisi ‘wins’ the Iranian presidential election.  He will replace outgoing President Hassan Rouhani.  Next, Joe Biden is sending 2.5 million doses of Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines to the FREE peoples of Taiwan.  Of course, the Chi-Coms are angry.  You know our motto: “F**k ‘em!”  Meanwhile, due to NO support from the European Union, Greece says they are going to crackdown on all the border invaders trying to flood Greek territory from Turkey.  Any nation that has had the boot of Islam atop its neck does not want MORE indigent Muslims flooding their country.  Long live Greece!  Next, growing crowds in Hong Kong are demanding the release of ALL political prisoners held by the Chi-Coms.  Moving on, the White House says comments made by Kim Jong Un recently are ‘interesting signals.’  He’s probably going to nuke Hawaii or something.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan continues encouraging all nations afflicted by the Beijing Bat Bug continue going after the Chi-Coms to own up to their crimes.  We add our voices to theirs and encourage the nations of the planet to join in a global class-action lawsuit and take these communist bastards to the World Court.  Reparations[xv] are in store.   Meanwhile, scientists are saying that had the use of hydroxychloroquine NOT become politicized by the frigging Democrats, nearly half-a-million Americans would not have died.  Meanwhile, a scientist at the World Health Organization says that ‘the jury is still out on Wuhan Flu booster shots.’
  75. 2021 Saturday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Outgoing Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says that the bill offered by fellow Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, one in which, the West Virginian offers a compromise to the lunacy the Democrats are pushing are ‘missing the mark.’
  76. 2021 Saturday M: Joe Biden News–  Joe Biden’s beloved ‘first dog’ Champ has died at age 13.   Speaking of decrepit old Joe, the man always fearful of his staff’s wrath, attended Mass even as Roman Catholic Bishops in the U.S. debate denying the Pro-Death Movement’s greatest benefactor Holy Communion.
  77. 2021 Saturday N: Political News I– GOP lawmakers continue focusing on ways with which to ban Marxist-Leninist Critical Race Theory- CRT- in public schools.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, came to the defense of Vice President Mike Pence after he was heckled by numerous conservative reporters at a recent conference.  ‘Mike’s NO traitor,’ quipped the RINO congressman.  Well, millions believe otherwise.[xvi]  Amazing how the engineered FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, helped the Chi-Coms, the Democratic-Socialists, and the RINOs drive the dagger into the back of President Donald J. Trump.  (Note- people of the 23rd District in California would love to see someone else in McCarthy’s spot).
  78. 2021 Saturday O: Political News II– A new report says that Millennials are gravitating toward the Republican Party.  Can’t blame them.  Under President Donald J. Trump, they were able to get married, have kids, buy new homes and cars.  Under Joe Biden, things are even worse than they were under Barack Hussein Obama which was flipping awful.  Next, a straw poll puts “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis of Florida at the top of the list of 2024 presidential contenders should President Donald J. Trump choose not to run and win a third time.
  79. 2021 Saturday P: Political News III– Governor Jared Polis, D-CO, signed three separate gun measures into law today.  The first, SB21-256 allows cities in the Rocky Mountain State to set their own gun laws.  It now makes gun laws a matter of state and local concern.   The second bill forbids gun dealers to transfer firearms to people who have had convictions on specified crimes as well as to forbid the sale of guns to people incapable of passing FBI gun background checks.  The third and final measure- according to Yahoo News- mandates “the Office of Gun Violence Prevention within the Department of Health and Environment to conduct public awareness campaigns that “educate the general public about state and federal laws and existing resources relating to gun violence prevention.”
  80. 2021 Saturday Q: Political News IV– Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘Juneteenth is a fitting addition to the list of federal holidays.’  We now have TWO independence days as we continue down the path of Balkanization which means how soon before we have other independence days for each stripe of the homosexual rainbow flag as well as for Hispanics, Latinos, and whatever else is out there crying for their own independence days.  WTF is going the f**k on?  In other political news, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘Joe Biden’s European trip was ALL carrot and NO stick.’  Amen.  Speaking of the usurper-in-chief, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says it’s time for Joe Biden to decide on his infrastructure bill, what we call the ‘shit or get off the pot moment’ to make an agreement with the GOP or watch it die.
  81. 2021 Saturday R: U.S. Supreme Court News– Famed legal scholar, constitutional law professor, and trial attorney Dr. Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax that the United States Supreme Court is NOT in a ‘conservative revolt mode’ but is rendering consensus decisions.

  83. 2021 Saturday T: Joe Biden Regime News I– Despite what the usurper-in-chief Joe Biden says, taxes to pay for their crazy COVID-19 budget schemes will hit 60-percent of all Americans while inflation will raise taxes for EVERYONE- including the 75-100 million illegals running amok in the country.  In other regime news, the Veterans Administration will now offer FREE tranny surgeries to all trannys who wish to either add or remove penises.  Boy, oh, boy, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt never envisioned transexual surgeries as part of the G.I. Bill.  Poor bastard is rolling around in his grave.  Next, ‘the president’ when asked by reporters to articulate what would happen in Afghanistan following the U.S. troop withdrawal, he was unable to provide a coherent answer.  Damned earpiece!  (Note- we bet Vladimir Putin is hacking into his earpiece.  Mayhap Joe left that one off the 16 infrastructures not to hack in the United States?  LOL.  It ain’t no laughing matter).
  84. 2021 Saturday U: Joe Biden Regime News II– Former top government watchdog Walter Schaub blasts Joe Biden’s regime for the nepotism rampant there.  He also blasted the Trump administration for having family members in key places.  However, the difference between the president and the regime is that Trump’s family members received no paychecks or benefits while everyone in the phony president’s family does.  Even worse is that when Joe Biden occasionally showed up on Zoom calls during his campaign, he swore that NONE of his family members would be given jobs.  NONE.
  85. 2021 Saturday V: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– After violence continues to intensify in BLUE cities across the country, Democratic-Socialist mayors and governors are rushing to refund police departments.  Go figure.  Speaking of this violence, former Sheriff David A. Clarke, D-WI Milwaukee County 2007-2017, says, ‘get ready for a violent summer.’  Elsewhere, in Russia, an American student- and former U.S. Marine- 34-year-old Catherine Serou was found dead.  She accepted a ride from a stranger this past Tuesday, texted her mother her fears of being abducted, then turned up dead.  Russian police quickly arrested a suspect.  We await further developments.  (Note- why the f**k would anyone- especially former U.S. military members be studying in frigging Russia?  It makes as much sense as visiting the land of the Chi-Coms.  No, no, and no!).  Meanwhile, following the deliberate collision with a group of sports cyclists that severely wounded seven of them, cops in the city of Show Low, Arizona, shoot the driver dead.  The driver- a WHITE guy- ran from the scene, resisted arrest, and got himself shot but not enough to kill his worthless ass.  (Note- Black Lives Matter will point to this and say, “See.  White guy, the cops didn’t shoot his ass dead!”)
  86. 2021 Saturday W: National Security News– Esteemed scholar of all things Chi-Com Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Com defector in the hands of the Defense Intelligence Agency could bring about the toppling of the Chinese Communist Party.
  87. 2021 Saturday X: Big Tech News– Rep. Barry Loudermilk, R-GA 11th congressional district, says that he and likeminded Republicans are focusing on reining in BIG TECH and on rebooting American productivity.
  88. 2021 Saturday Y: Health and Medical Alerts– Following YouTube’s censoring of a Henderson County (North Carolina) Board meeting in which the board posted a resolution in which the county would not push or incentivize the pushing of Chi-Com vaccinations with county tax dollars, the county board booted YouTube as its carrier of official county business.
  89. 2021 Saturday Z: NASA, Space, and UFO News– A new book suggests that the crew of the space shuttle Challenger may have survived the 1986 explosion.  That’s not good.
  90. 2021 Saturday AA: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is supporting Alaska state official Kelly Tshibaka in her bid to topple corrupt machine hack Senator Lisa Murkowski.  President Trump says he is even going to go to the 49th state and campaign on her behalf.  Now, we expect the crowds to see Trump in the Land of the Midnight Sun the likes of which, we have never before seen.  Next, President Donald J. Trump endorsed former Rep. Vito Fossella, R-NY 13th congressional district 1997 to 2009, to become the Staten Island borough president.  The 45th president says that Fossella won’t let the people down.
  91. 2021 Saturday BB: New Jersey State News– Governor Phil Murphy, Democratic-Socialist, signs a new landlord bill in the once-so-called Garden State that will forbid ALL landlords to delve into the criminal records of potential renters.
  92. 2022 Sunday: Folks, let’s hope it’s a slow weekend but with the way things are going in this country right now with a bogus ‘administration’ in the White House, we might all be concentration camp-bound sooner than anticipated…

  57. 2005 Friday: Following a grueling investigation, the UN confirms that yes, indeed, former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri was among the dead when a truck bomb detonated near where he was.  What the hell is it with these people and their frigging bombs?  Oh, we know, ‘some people they do something.’
  58. 2006 Saturday: A lab in England confirms that poultry specimens shipped to the facility from Hungary do indeed have the H5N1 strain of avian influenza.
  59. 2007 Sunday: Palestinian riffraff drive head of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas to outlaw armed factions of the terror group claiming to be a political party- Hamas after they threaten local security in Gaza Strip and the West Bank.  Elsewhere, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- claims the lives of at least 35 people and wounds countless others as they blow up a police bus traversing the streets of Kabul, Afghanistan.
  60. 2008 Tuesday: On the first full day that gay marriage became legal by order of the California Supreme Court, hundreds of homosexual couples married one another across the Golden State.  However, California voters later approved Proposition 8, which restricted nuptials to a union between a man and a woman.  The state supreme court later overturned this ruling, too.
  61. 2009 Wednesday: President Barack Obama extended some benefits to same-sex partners of federal employees.   Meanwhile, for the second time now, NASA postpones the launch of the Space Shuttle Endeavor, this time to July. 
  62. 2010 Thursday: BP CEO Tony Hayward testifies before the U.S. Congress about the Deepwater Horizon disaster that caused the worst oil spill in U.S. history.  Elsewhere, in the 2010 NBA Finals Game 7, the Los Angeles Lakers whip hereditary enemy, the Boston Celtics by a final score of 83-79 thus becoming the new champions.
  63. 2011 Friday: The first condemnation of discrimination against Gays, lesbians, and transgender people comes out of the United Nations Human Rights Council.  Elsewhere, the Yonhap News Agency reports that the government of South Korea has deployed intermediate missiles capable of blowing Pyongyang off the face of the map.  About flipping time.
  64. 2012 Sunday: In France, socialists win a majority of the seats in Parliament.   Elsewhere, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- commits more atrocities in the northern Nigerian state of Kaduna.  Multiple bombings claim at least 12 lives while countless others are injured and property damaged or destroyed.  How can we stop this scourge?  Neutron bombs would do the trick.
  65. 2013 Monday: A G-8 summit of wealthy nations opened in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, under a cloud with Russian President Vladimir Putin defiantly rejecting calls from the U.S., Britain, and France to halt his political and military support for Syrian leader Bashar Assad’s regime.
  66. 2014 Tuesday: All hell breaks out in Kenya at the village of Poromoko as Al-Shabab militants descend on the town killing 15 people outright, wounding numerous others, dragging still others off into the surrounding countryside after they burn down most of the houses.  What a bunch of barbarians.  Locate them and crucify them.   Elsewhere, as fighting with ISIS continues in Iraq, the U.S. military sends another 275 military personnel to defend the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. 
  67. 2015 Wednesday: A scumbag named Dylann Roof entered a historic African American church in Charleston, South Carolina, and murdered nine people with a handgun.  Roof managed to get away but the police found and arrested him the following morning.  Convicted of federal hate crimes, he received the death sentence; however, the punk later pleaded guilty to state murder charges and received a sentence of life without parole.  Should have shot him like the ignorant mad dog that he is.
  68. 2016 Friday: After much bloodshed and heavy fighting, the Iraqi army bulldozes its way into the main government center of embattled Fallujah.  The ISIS scumbags are clinging to rubble but the Iraqis are determined to liberate their city and exterminate their barbaric foes.  Meanwhile, California Burning: a massive wildfire in Santa Barbara County explodes during the hours of darkness, going from 2,000 acres to an appalling 4,000.  Once again, this demonstrates the stupidity of one-party, liberal, Democratic-Socialist rule that is intent on trashing the state through poor forest management and ignorant water policies.
  69. 2017 Saturday: Jurors in the trial of Bill Cosby for aggravated indecent sexual assault reach an impasse; the judge declares a mistrial but this is not the end for the entertainer’s legal troubles.

  71. 2019 Monday: Former Egyptian thug President Mohammed Morsi drops dead at a court appearance.  When the man achieved power during the Arab Spring, he was an Islamist intent on transforming a relatively free Egypt into a fascist, anti-Israel state.  Good riddance.
  72. 2020 Wednesday: Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Paul Howard led a press conference early in the morning in which, he charged the two officers responsible for the death of Rayshard Brooks.  Officer Garrett Rolfe, the man who fired the two lethal shots at a fleeing Brooks was hit with numerous accounts- 11 by our count- including felony murder.  The other officer- Devin Brosnan- was hit with 3 counts but the D.A. said he flipped and would testify against the other officer at trial.  Sad to say, there were massive numbers of cops who called in sick today in Atlanta, a big outbreak of Blue Flu.
  73. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Xi Jinping Chinese Bat Flu virus statistics for today: 8,261,260 confirmed cases, 445,468 confirmed deaths, and 4,013,202 confirmed recoveries which are the numbers for the globe.  Here are the stats for the United States: 2,205,567 confirmed cases, 119,471 confirmed deaths, and 687,450 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states where the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers for California: 157,015 confirmed cases, 5,208 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries thanks to the politics of Gov.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 298,516 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 161,133 deaths  
  76. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,806,205 confirmed cases, 63,259 confirmed deaths, and 2,068,914 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,352,995 confirmed cases, 37,448 confirmed deaths, and 2,131,508 confirmed recoveries, more or less the SAME numbers.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,170 confirmed cases, 507 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 448,160 confirmed cases, 5,843 confirmed deaths, and 220,640 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Mississippi: they have 319,704 confirmed cases, 7,369 confirmed deaths, and 310,189 confirmed recoveries.[xxii]

  79. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.227 per gallon, $2.957 in Florida, $3.976 in Hawaii, and $3.628 in Washington state.[xxviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Missouri: $2.756.  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- Mozambique: $3.794 per U.S. Gallon.[xxix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,417,914,125,896 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxx]  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 Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia with $136 and 180 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxxi]
  80. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #86 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and has yet to show up.  Fire this laughing orangutan.  Next, former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan believes that other states will follow suit and begin deploying law enforcement officers to aid in protecting our southern border as “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has in sending Sunshine State law enforcement to aid his fellow governors in Texas and Arizona.   Speaking of Florida and the border, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, Republican, is calling on other states to follow the lead of her state and to send law enforcement officers to the border states to help repel the illegal alien invasion.
  81. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The European Union creates Chi-Vi vaccine passports so citizens of the international body can travel freely between member states.  Americans seeking to travel in Europe will also have to be able to prove vaccination status, proof of antibodies related to previous infection, or recent negative COVID-19 tests; otherwise, YOU can’t come to the EU.  (Note- F**k the EU).  Next, Ryanair is suing Great Britain over new travel restrictions ahead of the busy summer travel season.
  82. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that a new bill will hold the Chi-Coms wholly responsible for letting loose on the world the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, even as more and more evidence continues to come out showing that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines are harmful to human beings due to toxic ingredients, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the government is going to dump $3.2 billion into creating antiviral pills.  (Note- Dr. “Phony Tony,”[xxxii] how much of that $3.2 billion will go into YOUR pockets?)  Elsewhere, as the Delta variant of the ‘VID continues to spread, federal government is doubling down on everyone to get vaccinated with the yet-to-be-approved by the FDA vaccines.  Friends, when drug manufacturers have QUALIFIED IMMUNITY stripped away from them (as it should be from the Chi-Coms in the World Court) and people affected negatively by their products can sue them, we might consider getting inoculated then.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden News–  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says the recent ‘Putin-Biden summit’ shows how Russian leader Vladimir Putin is testing the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, Fred H. Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, affirms this by saying that the ‘recent summit between Russia’s leader and (dimwitted) Joe Biden harmed U.S. security.’  (Note- Joe Biden told Mr. Putin NOT to hack into 16 industries or companies which means the other ones are on the table).   Rep. Mike Turner, R-OH 10th congressional district, said of ‘Joe’s summit’ that he had ‘no real goals for his meeting with Vladimir Putin.’  In other regime news, the U.S. Department of Justice is dropping the lawsuit against former Donald J. Trump White House adviser John “Endless Wars” Bolton’s book, “The Room Where it Happened.”
  84. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has introduced a bill with which to abolish the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms (and Explosives).  Meanwhile, a new poll says that ’74-percent of Republican voters support state-wide election audits.’  Amen.  We suspect it’s higher than that.   Meanwhile, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says questions regarding ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ failure to visit the southern border in 86 flipping days no less are both ‘unfair’ and ‘disrespectful.’  F**k her and f**k YOU.
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who defended their home from violent Black Lives Matter fecal matter protesters a summer ago pled guilty to misdemeanors to get this bogus case off their backs.  When BLM trash knocked the gates of their private community and threatened them and their pets with rape, death, and the burning down of their property, the duo grabbed their guns, went outside, and stood in front of their home armed and ready to go.  YET, they NEVER once pointed their legally-owned firearms at the thugs creating havoc in their neighborhood.  God bless them and let’s see the BLM thugs hauled before court and given some stiff prison sentences.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Political News III– Conservative political activists in Michigan are demanding an Arizona-style 2020 Election audit.  Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the ‘Gropin’ Gov’ celebrates the end of the pandemic with a massive show of fireworks in the Big Apple.  Both he and NYC Mayor Bill ‘Bag O’ Fries’ Di Blasio are in a celebratory mood after driving the state and the city into economic collapse.  Elsewhere, J. Chuck Todd, the little snowflake says of 2020 Election fraud proponents that if they don’t accept the premise the election was honest, ‘it’s going to be a painful interview.’  J. Chuck- F— you.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– By a vote of 7-2, the United States Supreme Court shagged off another GOP challenge to Obamacare.  Go figure.  (Note- as long as John Roberts serves as chief justice, we will NEVER get this evil monstrosity off the backs of the American people.  The Biden regime crows that ‘SCOTUS NOT overturning Obamacare is a BFD’).  However, the case was rejected on STANDING and not on the MERITS of the case.  Next, the Supreme Court stands up for the Catholic Church as it rebuffs a lawsuit brought by LGBTQIA+ fascists seeking to destroy a Catholic charity placing kids with foster parents.  The gays want foster kids placed in homosexual homes which the charity says goes against the teachings of the church.  We concur.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Business News– After soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo pushes Coca-Cola aside and endorses water, the soft drink manufacturer’s stock tumbles by $4 billion in value.  (Note- we say ‘F**K woke corporations, they get what they deserve.  Soft drinks are nonessential foods; no, people choose to drink them just as we can un-choose to drink them and even better, carry them in our restaurants and foodservice operations.  Screw them).
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– There is a growing outcry for the Biden regime to release information related as to HOW MANY undercover agents of various federal law enforcement agencies helped carry out the FALSE FLAG OPERATION the world had the misfortune to see on January 6, 2021, when Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter infiltrated the peaceful ranks of Trump supporters and turned a peaceful gathering into a riotous, violent mob, one dimwits like Joe Biden still claim ‘killed a cop.’   Speaking of these more than 450 poor souls locked up in solitary confinement, most are not expected to go to trial until sometime within the next 2-3 years.
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– As the Derek Chauvin defense team continues its push toward demanding a retrial of their client over all sorts of corrupt activities and poor-timing on behalf of the city of Minnesota, the prosecution is doing everything it can so as to avoid having to try Chauvin again.  We fully suspect that thanks to the actions of one juror who LIED on the juror questionnaire and those of Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd congressional district that NOT only will Officer Chauvin receive another trial, but he will also be acquitted which will lead the DOJ to double down on double jeopardy.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: National Security News– The FCC says it will explore whether Chi-Com telecommunications equipment should be banned over their ties to the People’s Liberation Army.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Environmental News I– It’s summertime and the American West and Southwest is experiencing elevated temperatures.  Morons like Sandy “The Fly” Cortez are shrieking about ‘CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!’  Those of us who have been around for decades understand that when it’s summer in some locales, it gets flipping hot.  Enough said.  (Note- the dreadful thing is, the Climate Change dupes want to take away our air conditioning).
  93. 2021 Thursday S: U.S. House of Representatives News– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi champions her new “Juneteenth” federal holiday making it the 12th paid federal holiday.  Drooling Joe Biden is expected to sign the bill into law.   Meanwhile, the GOP House campaign arm opens up to accepting cryptocurrency donations.  In other Democrat-dominated House news, Judiciary Committee Dems are seeking Trump-era subpoenas for data on Democrat lawmakers suspected of leaking like sieves.  Here we go again, another BOGUS investigation.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: U.S. Senate News– U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he will pass the federal budget sans any output by Republicans.  He could give a shit whether Republicans vote for the budget or they don’t.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell dismisses Senator Joe Manchin’s, D-W. VA, stance on voting rights.  Everyone knows spineless Senator Manchin will drop to his knees before the fawning POS majority leader and do his bidding.
  95. 2021 Thursday U: Louisiana State News– Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA, says the state will END enhanced unemployment benefits as of July 31, 2021.  It is time for Louisianans to return to work.  NOW.
  96. 2021 Thursday V: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, and leaders of both political parties held a joint news conference today in which the state will make a down payment of $250 million to begin again the construction of the border wall along the frontier with Mexico.  What we anticipate is that if Texas and Arizona begin reinforcing their borders with corrupt Mexico, illegals will flood through New Mexico and California which will cause voters in those two states to demand better border security.  The American people will no longer stand for a tidal wave of bottom-of-the-barrel illegal aliens running amok in their country.  We are contributing to the effort to secure our southern border.   (Note- we think that Governor Abbott should bring in former Sheriff Joe Arpaio to run the desert gulags for the illegal aliens- HE knows how to make people NEVER want to break the law again…).  Meanwhile, Governor Abbott signs ‘constitutional carry’ into law meaning Texans do not have to have a concealed carry permit to carry a legal firearm.
  97. 2021 Thursday W: Economic News– Unemployment numbers surged UP last month by 412,000 new claims for jobless benefits.  Oh, no, Joe, your ‘economic plans’ are collapsing the economy.  Dumb ass.
  98. 2021 Thursday X: U.S. Military News– The Associated Press reports that since 2010 the U.S. military has ‘mysteriously’ lost more than 1,900 weapons.  Say what?  
  99. 2021 Thursday Y: Observation of the Day– In other news, it is becoming increasingly clear that our military no longer has combat-qualified officers leading it but political hacks and appointees working to destabilize it and then to rebuild it as an updated version of the RED ARMY.  How soon will we see political commissars appointed to monitor the minds and actions of the soldiers?  How soon will it be before we see troops falling back from overwhelming odds being machine-gunned by their commissars?  Don’t laugh, we bet the Russian military that morphed into becoming the Red Army never thought their leaders would be more concerned with politics than with fighting and most importantly, winning wars.  We would say that this is among the reasons we spent more than 20 years in the septic tank of Afghanistan or why when President Donald J. Trump assumed office back in January 2017 that we suddenly found out we had troops in more places- like Equatorial Africa and parts of the Middle East we had no clue we had troops.  What we are seeing is a combination of the Red Army married with wealth for the top positions while everyone else must fall into line, follow the political orders of the day while paying scant attention to fighting to win against diabolical enemies.  (Note- Chef Vicky- let me know what YOU think).  (Note #2- look at NASA- now we are concerned with putting the first women and people of color on the moon?  While that’s great, what if they aren’t as skilled as other astronauts?  That is not a mission I would ever seek to participate).
  100. 2022 Friday:  Stick around and discover whatever the heck is going on today…

  67. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #81 in which, ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the southern border and has yet to take her hyena-laughing butt down there to see the border in person.  How long before ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden asks her to step down from her post as his ‘No. 2?’  Meanwhile, One America News reports the current tally of the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION: (1) Cost per day of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $537,164,032.  (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the Illegal Alien Invaders: $176,975,560,704.  Next, (3) Total Number of Illegal Aliens who have crossed the Border in 2021: 1,813,857.  Finally, (4) Total Number of River-Swimming, Fence-Climbing Illegals in the U.S.: 35,813,856.  (Note- we believe this estimate is on the extreme low end as since this blog began in 2009, we estimated anywhere from 35-50 million illegals in the United States 12 years ago.  Our updated figures rest at 50 million on the low end to 80-100 million on the high end.  The time is now to lay in electrified fencing along the border, drones armed with Hellfire missile patrolling the skies, anti-personnel ditches, vehicle and river barriers, foo gas pits, quick reaction strike forces, punji stakes and alligators in the Rio Grande, you name it, we must do it if our great country is to survive.  Elsewhere, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that neither Joe nor “Kooky Kamala” can avoid the border much longer.  Get your butts down there and do something to stop the self-inflicted mess.   Finally, when Latin American reporters are questioning ‘Kooky Kamala” on WHY no visits to the border, she goes ballistic and shows her bitchy side.
  68. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– As Ethiopia continues fighting a war against violent jihadists, famine is facing its people with the loss of valuable cropland to the fighting.  Food shortages in that heroic East African nation are becoming critical.  Next, aggressive Russian warplanes have intercepted U.S. aircraft traveling over international airspace over the Pacific Ocean.  Meanwhile, Myanmar’s military junta has charged ousted President Aung San Suu Kyi with all sorts of corruption charges.  Elsewhere, economic whiz Peter Navarro says the ‘G7 leaders see ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden as ‘weak, manipulatable.’ Speaking of the G7, Queen Elizabeth II hosts a dinner for mumbling, stumbling, crumbling ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Bet that conversation was elucidating.   Also in regard to the G7, former Trump administration official Ric Grenell says German leader Angela Merkel is a ‘great leader’ but that ‘Germany must pay its share.’  Elsewhere, a former chief of the Mossad says that Israel is definitely behind the troubles the Iranian nuclear program has currently been experiencing.  (Note- we would love to see the Mossad set off a nuke underneath Tehran.  Now that would be something to see.  We might even see it on pay-per-view).
  69. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, is raising new questions over the unscientific Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s demand that ‘we follow the science’ when it comes to combatting the Wuhan Virus.  Elsewhere, we learn from Dr. Roger Seheult, a critical care physician, that since the start of the pandemic, 314 children have been victims.  Now, as evidence rises that vaccinating young people with these so-called ‘vaccines,’ young boys and teenagers are being beset by myocarditis.  This leads to questions as to WHY we must give these untested ‘vaccines’ to our kids, especially when the drug makers have ‘qualified immunity’ meaning they cannot be sued for any problems associated with their vaccines.  The bulk of the problems come soon after the administering of the second dose, like poor “Hammering Hank” Aaron, one of the great baseball players of all time who died directly after his second dose of this experimental, rushed-to-market vaccine.  If Donald J. Trump were still in the White House right now, there would be all kinds of demands the vaccinations STOP.  However, with the “Drooler-in-Chief” in the White House, EVERYONE must get this shot.  F*** that.
  70. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Moving on, Newsmax contributor and former Lt. Governor Betsy McCaughey, R-NY, calls for the Chi-Coms- violators of international health laws as agreed to by the World Health Organization- to pay reparations to the entire world for their villainous crimes.  Regarding Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, Rep.  Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd congressional district, says “Phony Tony’s” flipflopping on his Chi-Vi statements is extremely ‘weird.’  Meanwhile, Rep.  Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, wants to know if- and by extension- how much did Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci profited from his pals in China’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu?  That is a question EVERYONE should be asking…
  71. 2021 Friday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland is trying to stop the various 2020 election audits around the country.  In order to stop them, he is slandering the search for the God’s Honest Truth as well as labeling the auditors as ‘racist, bigots, you name it,’ he’s calling them it.  Let us ask ONE question: AG “The Mole” Garland: IF there is nothing on YOUR SIDE of the aisle to hide, let them proceed.  You are acting as though YOU and the regime are guilty of something like, uh, ‘voter fraud?’  Elsewhere, former Trump border bigwig, former Deputy Secretary of U.S. Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli, says that the ‘election grab by the Democrats is part of a radical agenda.’
  72. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden News– Joe Biden is going to redirect border wall construction funds to the military and to the cleanup of the wall-building site.  Meanwhile, as stumbling Joe Biden attends the G7 meeting where his wife, the Faux First Lady Dr. Jill Biden seems to be calling the shots, the Chi-Coms are increasing the pressure on the United States.   Next, Time magazine is taking heat for posting a cover in which they try to make vacant-eyed Joe Biden ‘cool.’  The man ain’t cool- he’s senile.  (Note- we are so glad several of us canceled our subscriptions to that once-fine news magazine.  Now, it’s on a level with Tiger Beat or other teeny-bopper magazines of old).
  73. 2021 Friday L: Political News I– A new study shows that when Democrats are asked to elucidate their views as to what exactly their party stands, a high percentage of them cannot voice a coherent answer.  Figures.  Next, RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel blasts the Biden regime’s ‘open borders policies.’  Meanwhile, YouTube suspends the account of Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, for sharing thoughts on alternative treatments for the lab-engineered Chi-Com virus.
  74. 2021 Friday M: Business News– Tesla begins deliveries of its new S-Plaid automobiles to buyers.  Next, a Chi-Com ride-sharing app (yet another way to channel users’ data back to the Chinese Communist Party) Didi unveils its new IPO.  Wow.  Who wants to use the Chi-Com app?  None of us.
  75. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– In some shocking news today, we learn that Biden regime operatives are using a campaign of intimidation against West Point cadets who REFUSE- which is their God-given right to do so- to take the Chi-Com vaccine.  Reports suggest these cadets are being kept in solitary confinement up to 23 hours per day which is why their families are seeking out attorneys to go after this criminal act.  NO one in government in the U.S. can force anyone to put something into their bodies they don’t want.  What happened to the Pro-Death mantra: MY BODY, MY CHOICE?  (Note- the left is so hypocritical.  Stand strong West Pointers, stand strong against these fascist, totalitarian policies.  F*** them).  Meanwhile, the Biden regime has closed down an office that provided help to victims of illegal alien crime.
  76. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland says he is beefing up the department’s voting rights division (doubling it in fact) so as to keep a close eye on the various election audits occurring around the nation.  Mr. “AG,” IF the 2020 Elections were as clean as the wind-driven snow, then one would think you would be at the forefront of demanding they finish.  (Note- every day, the actions of the Democrats and their allies demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that the 2020 Elections were the most fraudulent in the history of our country).  In other Biden regime news, with the rollback of the Clean Water Act, Joe Biden is waging war on American farmers and ranchers.
  77. 2021 Friday P: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The Pulse Nightclub down in Florida is going to become a national heritage site or some such bull crap as that.  Back in 2016, a Muslim jihadist went into the club and killed dozens of people before taking his own life.  (Note- many believe the Muslim shooter was a closet gay).  Next, gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner blasts the hack comedian, Jimmy Kimmel, for labeling her ‘Donald J. Trump with a wig.’  Ouch.
  78. 2021 Friday Q: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the numbers for the Mega-Millions Draw #1667 with a $20 million jackpot on the line: 04, 43, 56, 63, 68, and Mega 13.  Out of 48,698 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,775.
  79. 2021 Friday R: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– El Chapo’s wife accepted a plea deal in federal court today in which, she cops to drug-trafficking charges but will not flip on her hubby, Joaquim Guzman, or any of his associates.  While she could face life in prison for the crimes to which, she copped, she is expected to get no more than a 9-11-year stint in federal prison.  Elsewhere, thanks to the left-wing fomented urban riots over the death of low-level thug George Floyd, new police hires across the country are way down.  This is what the Democrats want- they don’t want to get rid of law enforcement; no, they seek to federalize law enforcement so NO area will have its own police but will have cops sent from elsewhere.  Thus, they will have NO ties to the communities they serve which will permit them to commit all sorts of egregious acts against the citizens of this country.
  80. 2021 Friday S: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Ohio is pressing ahead with its lawsuit to have Google declared a public utility.  Good.  Break them up and deport Sundar Pichai and his entire family back to Punjabistan.
  81. 2021 Friday T: National Security News– Retired U.S. Navy Admiral James Stavridis says that the Iranian warships on the way to Venezuela pose a new threat to the United States.  Meanwhile, the FBI says it was able to track the hackers of the Colonial Pipeline to wherever their hole was and to get the ransom back from the scum.
  82. 2021 Friday U: Popular Culture News– Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says he’s glad that his state booted the Marxist cancer of Critical Race Theory.  Speaking of CRT, banning this flawed propaganda from K-12 schools is NOT cancel culture; no, it’s the ONLY thing.
  83. 2021 Friday V: Moron News–  The esteemed FBI Director Chris Wray- a man who had NO CLUE the Defense Intelligence Agency had a top-level Chi-Com defector in its grip- says that ‘yes, indeed, Mexican cartel criminal activity is indeed spilling over into the U.S.’  Then do something about it moron (we should have put this one into MORON NEWS- oh, look, we did).  Next- and the hits just keep on coming- a New Jersey school district (we won’t even name them) has excised ALL holiday names off the school calendar for the upcoming term.  Losers.  In other MORON NEWS, Black Lives Matter promises much more transparency after one of their cofounders raped the Marxist organization, purchased expensive real estate in several states, then told them to go “F**k themselves” as she retired.  Why not sue Patrice Cullors and get your George Soros money back?  Finally, one moron calls another moron a ‘moron’- Meghan McCain, the overweight, bonbon-gobbling ‘conservative’ cow from the View says ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is a ‘moron’ over her dimwitted answers regarding the southern border crisis.  Amen.
  84. 2021 Friday W: Energy News– Pacific Gas & Electric warns Californians that MORE blackouts are on the way.  (Note- and Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom wonders WHY the citizens of the once-Golden State are going to spend $215 million recalling his worthless butt?)
  85. 2021 Friday X: U.S. Senate News– A bipartisan group of senators has arrived at a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.  The Biden regime sought $1.9 trillion; the lawmakers lowered his demand by just a tad.  Still, the money will have to come from foreigners like the Chi-Coms.  What a victory for the American people.  Next, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is seeking student loan debt deferment for survivors of terrorism.
  86. 2021 Friday Y: Fake News– Pulitzers honor Chi-Vi pandemic coverage as well as the Antifa/Black Lives Matter rallies that so destroyed numerous urban centers that remain burnt down and vacant.  You better believe that FAKE NEWS media is excited about receiving honors for supporting, participating in, and reporting on these criminal acts.  Elsewhere, a new report says that President Donald J. Trump’s Department of Justice forced Apple to hand over data on Democrats in government to the administration.  Sounds like a crock of festering crap.  (Note- if he did, it’s NOTHING that Barack Hussein Obama didn’t do.  Everyone knows Obama’s regime spied on- and sometimes- imprisoned- reporters).
  87. 2021 Friday Z: President Donald J. Trump News– President Trump is welcoming a large group of GOP lawmakers to his home to discuss tactics and strategy for the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says he has turned down TWO book deals- even though he has been busy writing vast amounts of pages- because he is hard at work doing something of way more importance.
  88. 2021 Friday AA: Arizona State News– Attorney General Mark Brnovich has thrown his hat into the ring to challenge Senator Mark Kelly, D-AZ, in 2022.
  89. 2021 Friday BB: California State News– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is among top lawmakers in the Golden State to receive a 4.2-percent pay bump.  Wow.  It never stops.  Speaking of ‘the Nazi,’ he signed a bill to begin rolling back the lockdowns and restrictions he so needlessly imposed upon the citizens of his state.  In November, YOU’RE GONE, POS.  Next, the state of California is appealing a recent overturn of the more-than-three-decades-old assault weapons ban by a federal judge.  Screw them.
  90. 2021 Friday CC: Nevada State News– Governor Steve Sisolak, D-NV, signed a law giving the Silver State the first-in-the-nation presidential primary.
  91. 2021 Friday DD: Idaho News– Governor Brad Little, R-ID, says he is ‘not Ron DeSantis-enough for Idaho conservatives.’  His lieutenant governor, Janice McGeachin, is primarying him in 2022.
  92. 2021 Friday EE: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott says that the Lone Star State is going to finish what the Trump administration began and the Biden regime won’t: build the wall and deport them all.  (Note- we think Gov. Abbott should bring former Sheriff Joe Arpaio to Texas and have him construct the tent jail facilities that were so famous in the Copper State.  Build those tent prisons, force the illegal aliens to wear pink underwear, and feed them peanut butter sandwiches all three meals of the day.
  93. 2021 Friday FF: Economic News– New reports say that Americans fleeing totalitarian BLUE STATES for RED ones are taking $26.8 billion in tax revenue with them and redistributing it to their new homes.  Wow.
  94. 2021 Friday GG: Sports News– Now that the word’s out, the NFL is going to discontinue the decades-long ‘race-norming policies’ with which it provided health and medical benefits to WHITE players while denying them to BLACK players.  ‘Race-norming’ means that the NFL viewed blacks as being less-intelligent thus they should receive lesser or no benefits for concussion-related diseases while making sure the white players- being more intelligent and all (Note- this is NOT US saying this; no, this is what the news has been reporting)- receive additional or higher benefits for the same post-career brain injuries.  The NFL also ‘race-normed’ player positions such as wide receiver and other positions that mostly black players fill the ranks.  Wow.  Where is communist Colin Kaepernick on this outrage?
  95. 2022 Saturday:  Amazing how last year’s Chi-Vi stats pale in comparison to what we’ve seen a year later…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Dennis Wilson released his ONLY solo album- in his LIFETIME- “Pacific Ocean Blue”- on August 22, 1977.  Somewhat a shock to fans of the Beach Boys back in the day as it was NOT a Beach Boys-style album to be sure- some proclaim it to be the ‘bomb’ while others gave it a listen or two and then stuck it on the record shelf.  The drummer who once could sing, “Do You Wanna Dance” with the beautiful voice now had one cracked from alcoholism, tobacco, and God knows what else.  Only Bruce Johnston joined him from his time in the BBs but he had members of the touring band as well as legendary session men and women adding to the overall sound.  As an ‘oddity,’ it is worth checking out but if you expect to hear Beach Boys, do yourself a favor and seek it out at your local library where you can check it out for free.  Sad but true- we call ‘em the way we frigging see ‘em.

161. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 202

2020 Wednesday: The left continues running amok across the United States thanks to the collusion between the Democratic Party and their communist masters in Beijing. Statues are being torn down, Antifa is taking over six-block swaths of Seattle and declaring their own independent totalitarian fiefdom. It will soon be time for the military to take to the streets and to begin cleaning up this low-life, socialist pond scum. Light ‘em up, President Trump, light ‘em up!

  73. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The president of Guatemala- Alejandro Giammattei – blames the Biden regime for the crisis at the southern border and not his country or its people.   Next, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is hosting a border crisis summit today in the Lone Star State.  Speaking of the disaster, Newsmax reports that millions of illegal aliens could pour across the southern border, a statement confirmed by former Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan.  Rep.  Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, has offered a formal invitation to “Kooky Kamala” Harris to visit the California-Mexico border as his guest.
  74. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Iran is growing bolder in its demands to rejoin the failed nuclear deal, the JCPOA.  Elsewhere, the French man who slapped President Emanuel Macron gets a four-month stretch in the hoosegow.  (Note- in the U.S., he might have languished in the jail for 6-7 years before his trial would finally occur in the courts.  Then, he might wait anywhere from 6-24 months before receiving sentence.  Maybe we should speed up our courts like the French model?)   Meanwhile, if Benjamin Netanyahu is ousted from Israeli politics, it could end up hurting relations between American evangelicals and the Jewish state.   Next, the Chi-Coms liken the hysteria over the origins of the Chi-Vi to the one swirling around ‘weapons of mass destruction and Iraq.’  Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Venezuela must turn back’ the two Iranian vessels on the way to dock in that criminal regime.
  75. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, is raising new questions about Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s ‘advice’ to ‘follow the science.’  It is clear that the “Mighty Mite” is no longer a practitioner of science so much as he is a political hack working on behalf of the left.  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the probe into the Chi-Com Bat Virus’ origins is much like the Trump-Russian Collusion probe meaning to us, it’s a political show with no real outcome expected.  Next, Moderna files for emergency use of its Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine for use in minors, ages 12-17.  However, stunning information continues to bubble up regarding the use of the Chi-Vi vaccines in young people and the accompanying rates of serious symptoms including those of myocarditis or inflammation of the heart muscle.  Yet, the Biden regime continues pushing these vaccines onto every American like the Reverend Jim Jones pushed cups of Kool-Aid onto his followers down in Jonestown, Guyana.  Friends, may we be so bold as to say what most of us think?  We believe this is social engineering at its worst.  We believe the more people that die around the globe, say, maybe 1-2 billion, that will do the global warming lovers good in cutting down the human population on the planet, something they have been hard at work accomplishing via abortion, rising crime rates, a polluted environment, increased fear, and now ‘vaccines for a lab-engineered virus in…frigging communist China?’  F*** this, NONE of us are going to take this vaccination.  (Note- now that we know hydroxychloroquine increases one’s chances of surviving this crap by 200-percent and it’s cheap, then WTF?)
  76. 2021 Thursday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– The Arizona state senate is prepared for whatever the results from the 2020 Election are.  From press conferences, we already know there are loads of problems.  Likewise, election officials in Fulton County, Georgia, are preparing to depose some of the corrupt election officials that scanned, re-scanned, and re-re-scanned stacks of ballots after sending everyone else home for the night.  We suspect once the scumbags begin facing prison time, they will begin flipping on one another.  What will the FAKE NEWS MEDIA say then?
  77. 2021 Thursday J: Joe Biden News– Questions continue to arise as to WHY Faux First Lady Dr. Jill Biden spent nearly 20-25 minutes ‘introducing hubby ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ to U.S. military in Great Britain yesterday.  We brought that up yesterday- is she akin to Edith Bolling Galt, President Woodrow Wilson’s wife, who ran the show while her husband was incapacitated by a debilitating stroke?  Everyone knows the drooler-in-chief is not all there.
  78. 2021 Thursday K: Political News I– Fox News heir James Murdoch spent $20 million opposing President Donald J. Trump by donating to Joe Biden and other progressive candidates.  Elsewhere, George P. Bush- in yet another incredible show of brown-nosing on his behalf- says that President Donald J. Trump remains the center of the GOP universe.  Daddy Jeb Bush must be upset.
  79. 2021 Thursday L: Business News– Rising inflation is driving up the costs of everything.  Millennials have no clue as to what inflation is or worse, stagflation, should that economic malady fall atop the country.

  81. 2021 Thursday N: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Amazon.com defends its decision to sell the now-infamous “Blue Lives Murder” merchandise at its site.  Shame on them.  Meanwhile, Newsmax reports on a psychoanalyst by the name of Donald Moss who says that ‘whiteness is parasitic’ and the POS is WHITE.  Ah, all the LOSERS are jumping aboard the anti-white train.  Like the Nazis had the Jews, so, too, do the Democrats have WHITE people.  The time is NOW to stomp out this insanity.  NOW.  Vote out every Democrat and send them to reeducation camps.
  82. 2021 Thursday O: Social Media News and Big Tech News– Instagram fact checks satirical posts about Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.  It would appear that they are forcing users to either edit or to delete posts critical of the “Mighty Mite.”   Meanwhile, some sort of ad campaign is targeting workers at Facebook with the intention of preventing President Donald J. Trump from EVER being on the platform again.  In other social media news, the U.S. State Department is attacking Nigeria’s ban on Twitter following Twitter shutting down the account of President Muhammadu Buhari.  Once again, the Biden regime is on the wrong side of the argument.
  83. 2021 Thursday P: Health And Medical Alerts– Patients are hopeful to receive Biogen’s new Alzheimer’s drug, even though it costs $56,000 per year and very few insurances will cover the costs.  Add to that the fact that we know little to nothing about its side effects and it would appear we have a crapshoot on our hands.  Still, if it can help people like the ‘drooler-in-chief Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and the fossilized Senator Dianne Feinstein, then we can watch what happens to them.   Meanwhile, news reports say Medicare Copays for the new Alzheimer’s disease drug could reach $11,500 per year.  Remember: the new drug is projected to cost $56,000 per year.
  84. 2021 Thursday Q: War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– The U.S. is considering launching airstrikes in support of its Afghan allies even as the United States continues its withdrawal from that war-torn country.  Meanwhile, Rep.  Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district, finds herself in hot water once again over her anti-Israel and pro-Hamas babblings.  (Note- the question is, is Omar as stupid as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez is or is she even lower IQ than the extremely low IQ leader of the (Suicide) Squad?  This bitch must be removed from Congress ASAP).
  85. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. House of Representatives News– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden cares more about Russian jobs than he does American ones.’  And they said that President Donald J. Trump was a Russian stooge!  Meanwhile, Rep.  Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO 3rd congressional district, says the Biden regime must incentivize workers to return to their jobs rather than disincentivize them by giving them more money to stay home rather than to do the right thing.  Elsewhere, House Republicans have sent letters to Mark Zuckerberg and to Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci questioning their interactions over sanitizing the news on the China Virus. 
  86. 2021 Thursday S: U.S. Senate News– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says it’s amazing to see the large number of foreign policy blunders committed by the Biden regime in its first five months.  Next,  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci chose the Chi-Coms and Big Tech over the American people.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he will look at the bipartisan infrastructure bill.  Conversely, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez can’t even sell her moronic policies to her own party.
  87. 2021 Thursday T: Fake News– “Wank-spanking” Jeffrey Toobin- the luminary of CNN- is returning to that network after getting his head straight.  Everyone should remember that Mr. Toobin ‘pulled a Toobin” by masturbating during a Zoom call with his fellow employees several months back.  Will the cameras ever dare to film him below his chest henceforth?
  88. 2021 Thursday U: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says that ‘I was exonerated’ by the Layfette Park investigation as well as the recent testimony by former White House counsel Don McGahn.   The 45th president also said of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci that the man is ‘science fiction.’  Next, he derided Joe Biden on his climate change zaniness.
  89. 2021 Thursday V: California State News– Caitlyn Jenner compares herself to President Donald J. Trump as a ‘disrupter.’  Meanwhile, the Golden State’s Democrats are whining and sniveling that the recall of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom ‘could cost the state $215 million.’  So flipping what?  It’s not like the Democrats care for the homeless, the substance abusers, and anyone else in the state.  They spend BILLIONS of dollars on crap such as the California High Speed Rail boondoggle as well as the loading of salmon spawn onto tanker trucks and carrying them to the Pacific Ocean but they can’t find money for the godforsaken?  WTF!
  90. 2021 Thursday W: Florida State News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says he’ll sign a bill prohibiting transgender surgeries for those under the age of 18.  Good.  He should, they are criminal acts committed by ‘WOKE’ parents.  You want to transition, do it when you hit the age of 18.  Florida has also banned Critical Race Theory from all classrooms.
  91. 2021 Thursday X: Texas State News– The Texas Bar Association is ‘investigating’ Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, for ‘official misconduct’ when he called the 2020 Presidential Election in dispute over the claims of rampant fraud and other crimes.  A Michigan judge ruled that AG Paxton was correct when he called out the fraud in the Michigan and three other states and filed lawsuits in federal courts demanding answers.  The states did not follow their own election laws which is why the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from President Donald J. Trump.
  92. 2021 Thursday Y: Economic News– U.S. deficit hits record $2.1 trillion just this year thanks to Democrats out of control spending.

[i] We look forward to promoting the music of the Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, Roy Wood, and Wizzard.

[ii] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii]We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[iv] See previous.

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

[vi] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[vii] President Nixon should never have lifted the trade embargo on communist China.  The only time the embargo should have been lifted is when the people of Taiwan cross the straits and reclaim their country from the communists.

[viii] We look forward to sharing the music of Ray Charles with the readership one day so please remain with us until we do.

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

  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:

The next album by the Beach Boys is to some an ‘odd one’ and to others, a ‘masterpiece.”  “The Beach Boys Love You” came out April 11, 1977 and found the band using synthesizers and other novel musical instruments.   Once again, we have the quintet of Mike Love, Alan Jardine, and the Wilson Brothers.  The songs are somewhat eclectic and might take a while to grow on you but there are a few gems such as “Let Us Go on this Way,” “Roller Skating Child,” the absolutely delightful, “Johnny Carson,” and “Honkin’ Down the Highway.”  If you are a completist as are all of us and our support crew, then you want to own every release of music by bands you love.  We hope you will love “The Beach Boys Love You” as much as we love it.  Seek it out and make it a part of your daily playlist- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  55. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Bat Flu, aka the communist Chinese-engineered pandemic continues causing problems but so far has been unable to dislodge President Donald J. Trump or bring down the Western World.  Beijing, we are not going to settle for Xi-ism, no flipping way.  Here are the stats for the day around the world: 6,591,391 confirmed cases, 388,710 confirmed deaths, but 2,851,157 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the numbers: 1,910,843 confirmed cases, 109,639 confirmed deaths, but 437,251 confirmed recoveries, the last number of which would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics.
  56. 2020 Thursday A: In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 119,807 confirmed cases, 4,422 confirmed deaths, but Governor ‘Little Gavin’ Newsom will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  In the Aloha State, here are the stats: 653 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 609 confirmed recoveries which is incredibly good.  Thank you, Governor David Ige, perhaps you can urge Gavin Newsom and Jay Inslee to do the same?  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 22,729 confirmed cases, 1,138 confirmed deaths, but much like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries which says it’s all about politics.
  57. 2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment.  About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life.  Harmeet Dhillon launches a lawsuit on behalf of beaten journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon, last year.   Get them, Harmeet!   Again, we must say that the majority of us writing for the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believe that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party who channels Beijing’s dark money to its various action groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Time to bring ALL of them down.
  58. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 173,301,283 confirmed cases, +406,451, 3,726,693  confirmed deaths, +9,784 and 156,279,830 confirmed recoveries, +46,930.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,191,460 confirmed cases, UP 16,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 612,202 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[viii] and 28,053,098 confirmed recoveries, UP 29,228.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]  
  59. 2021 Friday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 294,296 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 165,353 deaths  
  60. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,794,217 confirmed cases, 63,393 confirmed deaths, and 2,059,372 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,329,867 confirmed cases, 36,973 confirmed deaths, and 1,970,341 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,471 confirmed cases, 501 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 441,674 confirmed cases, 5,889 confirmed deaths, and 215,260 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Missouri, home of newest Squad member: Rep. Cori “The Bit*h” Bush: they have 601,503 confirmed cases, 9,846 confirmed deaths, and 545,505 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  61. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,539 confirmed cases, 6,417 confirmed deaths, and 832,923 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country- Luxembourg, 104th country on the list, a proud country with a centuries’ old history, a: 70,182 cases of the virus, 818 confirmed deaths and 68,556 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  62. 2021 Friday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,756.39, UP 179.35 points (+0.52%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,814.59, UP 199.98 points (+1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,229.89, UP 37.04 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.37 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.30 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.31%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,841.08 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.07%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $23,300.00 per troy oz., -1,000.00 (-4.12%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., -2,500.00 (-0.41%). [xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96.     In Emirati Dirham, one greenback equals 3.67 and in Estonian Kroon, a buck equals 13.95 and in Ethiopian Birr, one dollar equals 43.19 of theirs.[xv]        
  63. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors – Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.210 per gallon, $2.857 in Florida, $3.944 in Hawaii, and $3.590 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.909.  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- Namibia: $3.343 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,367,734,381,099 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.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.[xix]
  64. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #74 for the so-called ‘Border Czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this extremely important job and as of yet, has not shown up to work…once.  Seems like we need a new border czar and not Willie Brown’s former bed partner.  Just saying… In other border news, reports on Newsmax say that nearly $2 billion earmarked for the border wall along the heaviest traffic sector remains unused.  Joe Biden- use this money to continue wall construction.  Now. Speaking of “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden (that tape with him talking about a 7-year-old girl looking like she’s 19 was extremely creepy and classic, classic “Cho-Mo Joe”), today, he officially ended President Donald J. Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy.
  65. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– A Chinese virologist- Dr. Lei-Meng Yan- says ‘Dr. Fauci’s leaked emails prove her claim that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu was indeed leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a majority of people around the globe now believe.’  Amen.  Dr. Fauci was sending the lab $600,000 per year to study bat viruses.  Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci now demands the Chi-Coms release the data on the bat cave patients who were the original people sickened by the Wuhan Flu.
  66. 2021 Friday H: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Advance portions of the Pentagon study into unidentified aerial (and submersible) phenomena are beginning to come out.  Initial excerpts suggest inconclusive findings stating that they could be ‘Chi-Com or Russian highly advanced craft.’  However, Lue Elizondo, the man who headed up the investigation at the Pentagon says that the report actually says the sightings of these and other unknown craft date back 70 years which confirms there is NO way either the Russians or the Chi-Coms could be responsible.  Sightings occurred for as long as human beings have walked the Earth; however, once the nuclear age commenced in the 1950s, the sightings have gone straight up (like the ‘hockey stick model’ that doofus promoting climate change uses) and only continue increasing.  (Note- the Chi-Coms have been busy stealing our (and everyone else’s) technology for decades which suggests there is no way the Beijing bullies could be responsible for this.  We seem to have a BIG PROBLEM.  Anyhow, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says he’s ‘glad he blew the whistle on this problem and got the ball rolling.’  Thank you, senator, thank you.  We didn’t agree with you on much else, but this is a great thing you have done for our country.  
  67. 2021 Friday I: Big Tech News– Little Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook have banned President Donald J. Trump from its social media app (we closed our accounts long, long ago) for the next TWO years, meaning they think they are cutting him off from the rest of the world through the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  However, President Trump said, ‘next time he’s in the White House, there won’t be any dinners for Zuckerberg and his wife, it will be all business.’  We look forward to that time, folks.  Time to use the Sherman Antitrust Act and bust up not only Facebook but also Twitter, Instagram, and all the rest of the mind-controlling apps spying on us and canceling anyone they choose.  
  68. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the ‘graffiti all over her home is a sign of the times in the United States.’  Next the U.S. Senate GOP rejects the Biden regime’s infrastructure demand which leads to feeble old Joe rejecting their rejection.  Wow.  Moving on, yesterday, we reported that jobs created in May were something like 985,000 which was a false number- the true number was 559,000 new jobs which economists said should have been 650,000; the Republicans are ripping Joe Biden a new one over his ineptitude when it comes to being a ‘successful president.’  This man is a walking, stumbling, bumbling disaster and all we can say is ‘IF the Chi-Coms want to get in their licks, they better do it as quickly as possible because once the 2020 Election audits conclude, Joe will be selling pencils on the street corner.
  69. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Former White House counsel under the Trump administration Don McGahn testified before Congress today.  Next, Vice President Mike Pence said that “Black lives saved, not endangered, by the police.”  Next, the Pentagon says- for now- U.S. military bases still cannot fly the LGBTQIA+ flag (but how long before they do).   Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association drops claims against New York Attorney General Leticia James so the NRA can pursue other claims in Manhattan.  Meanwhile, former ambassador to the United States from Israel- Michael Oren- says, ‘it’s always premature to eulogize Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.’  Amen.
  70. 2021 Friday L: Business News– Nonfungible Tokens- so-called NFT sales have fallen by 90-percent as the market implodes.  NFTs are cryptographic assets on blockchain that in the era of cryptocurrencies and other things that don’t exist in the REAL world are things hucksters and shysters peddle to unsuspecting morons wanting to be COOL.  (Note- NFTs are a bogus thing such as digital art and other high-tech crap Millennials love.  Screw ‘em).
  71. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Draw #1665 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 04, 30, 34, 41, 64, and Mega 08.  Stay tuned for further details.  Out of 58,203 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $427 apiece.
  72. 2022 Saturday: Let’s see what corruption the Democrats and their bosses in Beijing are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys would be on tour for the next several years while they were trying to get Brian Wilson out of the doldrums of mental illness and back to being a functioning member of the group.  Thus, the record label began creating some phenomenal repackaging of the group’s earlier hits.  “Endless Summer” came out on June 24, 1974 and featured a rollicking collection of tunes from 1963 to 1965.  Back in the day, this was a double LP and catapulted the band back to popularity and sales as old fans who abandoned them returned and new fans proclaimed a ‘collective wow’ what with all the fun summer songs about surfin,’ girls, and hot rods.  As the Vietnam War sputtered to a close and Watergate was in the history books, everyone wanted to have a fun time once again and with this album, they could and did.  Seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, And ‘Refugees’ News- News reports today say that ‘illegal aliens released from custody into the interior of the United States are now out there panhandling as they have no resources.’ Wow.

(Note- a ‘purge’ might be coming soon…)

  62. 2018 Sunday: In Game 2 of the 2018 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors ended up pounding the snot out of the Cleveland Cavaliers by a final score of 122-103 with Step Curry hitting 9 three-pointers along with his other teammates delivering critical backup.  The fourth quarter became a rout and the Cavaliers ended up pulling their starters and sending their bench in for 4-5 minutes of garbage time.  Meanwhile, the nation’s 16th U.S. Secretary of Defense Frank Carlucci died at age 87 in McLean, Virginia.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan from 11-23-1987 to 01-20-1989.
  63. 2019 Monday: The government of Sudan draws international condemnation upon itself when its military opens fire on protesters in the streets of Khartoum.  The military is credited with the murders of at least 100 people, many of whose bodies were then tossed into the Nile River.  Hate to be downstream.
  64. 2020 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump continues fighting the good fight alone.  On this day, his Defense Secretary Mark Esper distances himself from the commander-in-chief over the president’s trip to St. John’s Church across from the White House as a ‘photo op’ as well as the fact that he has suggested that ‘if governors don’t get their states under control, he might implement the Insurrection Act to force them to do so.  Former Defense Secretary General James “Mad Dog” Mattis slams the president in an article in Atlantic magazine while former President Barack Hussein Obama gives a statement on race relations in the United States and what must be done to solve them.
  65. 2020 Wednesday A: COVID-19, the Bat Flu Virus Crisis from communist China continues racking up numbers although with race relations on fire in the U.S., no one seems to give a hoot.  Here are the stats for the world: 6,393,956 confirmed cases, 383,318 confirmed deaths, and 2,786,615 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, here are the numbers: 1,888,652 confirmed cases, 108,596 confirmed deaths, and 425,632 confirmed recoveries.

  68. 2021 Thursday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 293,626 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 165,983 deaths

  72. 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 $4.205 per gallon, $2.859 in Florida, $3.943 in Hawaii, and $3.584 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Delaware: $2.978.  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- Vietnam: $3.257 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,364,012,078,749 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.[xx] 
  73. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ 73rd day in this job and as of yet, she is a NO-SHOW.  Perhaps it’s duties as the new ‘equity czar’ (or whatever you want to call it) that are interfering with her fulfillment of her pre-existing duties.  We shall see.  Customs and Border Patrol says that for the month of April 17-thousand illegal alien brats were apprehended.  We say: load them onto planes, trains, buses, and freighters and send them back to Tegucigalpa and let the Central Americans sort them out.  Enough is enough.  Anyhow, One America News reports the following statistics: (1) Cost of illegal aliens to the American people for today: $527,980,864.  (2) Number of illegal aliens who have crossed just in 2021: 1,723,907.  (3) Total Cost of caring for illegal aliens this year alone: $168,199,241,728.  Finally, (4) Total number of illegals in the United States as of today (One America News count): 35,723,908.  (Note- since this blog began in 2009, we suggested there were anywhere between 35-50 million illegals in the country back then; now, we suspect that number is closer to 55-85 million illegal aliens sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers.  They clog our schools, our hospitals, deplete our food banks, reap benefits to which the scum are not entitled, drive up rents, lower wages, and deplete jobs meant for Americans.  This simply must stop, and it must stop now.  Everyone- turn illegal aliens over to law enforcement or deal with them yourselves.
  74. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, And ‘Refugees’ News– News reports today say that ‘illegal aliens released from custody into the interior of the United States are now out there panhandling as they have no resources.’  Wow.  Hopefully, as these people weaken from malnutrition and lack of water, they will begin self-deporting.  What is clear is that the American people are not going to come to their aid.  Vamanos mojados!  (Note- a ‘purge’ might be coming soon…)
  75. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– More than 10,000 Olympics volunteers have quit.  However, organizers of the Tokyo Summer Olympics claim they will go on as scheduled which is in two months.  Meanwhile, we learned today that the Chi-Coms are paying American newspapers to publish their propaganda.  Wow.  We knew newspapers were having a hell of a time staying in business due to their far-left politics but had no idea they would sell our country out to Beijing.  Wow again.  Elsewhere, Georgia gubernatorial candidate Vernon Jones says that ‘the U.S. must stand with Israel and with Jewish Americans.’
  76. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– As the emails of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci continue hitting the news cycle, there is increasing demand for the political hack to come before Congress and answer questions over his ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, his cover-up of the Chi-Coms’ gain of function studies with the bat viruses, and his actions since the pandemic began.  Sadly- for him- the American people now know that he is little more than a pollical operative who could have helped President Donald J. Trump negate the pandemic in the U.S. sooner than he was able to and note- he acted unilaterally extremely fast to halt the inflow of people from communist China and from Europe.  “Phony Tony” has much for which to answer and as the highest-paid bureaucrat in Washington, D.C., he must start answering questions NOW.
  77. 2021 Thursday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Now that we have a usurper in the White House, medical science now feels it’s okay to tell the American people that- God forbid!- Hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, increases COVID-19 survival rates by 100-percent (which we already knew) and that it both shortens the length of the illness and its severity.   In other news, former Florida Rep. and current director for the American Center for Political Leadership Dennis Ross says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has done more than anyone else to politicize the Xi Jinping Bat Flu than anyone else in the United States.  Regarding little “Phony Tony,” President Donald J. Trump says that with ‘Fauci exposed, the Chi-Coms owe the United States alone $10 trillion for causing the pandemic.’  Amen.  Elsewhere, Francis Collins, director of the National Institute of Health, is striving to cover his ass by calling for a probe into what the Chi-Coms at the Wuhan Institute of Virology knew and when did they know it?  Finally, “Phony Tony” says that ‘President Donald J. Trump deserves credit for the Chi-Vi vaccines but so do other presidents.’  What?  What other presidents had a hand in Operation Warp Speed?
  78. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senator Shelley Moore Capito, R-W. Va, continues meeting with the Biden regime to negotiate an infrastructure deal.  “Mumbling, Stumbling Old Joe” still demands ONE TRILLION DOLLARS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE (so says Barack Obama’s voice in his earpiece) but claims he will lower his demand for a 28-percent tax on corporations.  (Note- the Bidenistas, however, are hard at work at getting the G7 to agree to a global tax on corporations of around 28-percent so this is a bogus area of negotiation).   In other regime news, Joe Biden still hasn’t appointed permanent leaders to oversee BIG TECH.  (Note- he will pick some loser seeing as how BIG TECH owns the Biden regime).  Next, the regime has ordered NO investment in Chi-Com firms connected to the Chinese Communist Party, the Chi-Com military, or surveillance.[xxi] 
  79. 2021 Thursday L: Business News– A recent study says that ‘unemployment claims in Florida are down 97-percent from last year.’  You go, Florida, you go.  Speaking of unemployment across the country, last week, first time filings for jobless benefits dropped to 385,000.  Meanwhile, initial reports say the U.S. added 985,000 jobs in May.  Excellent.  Question- are they ‘hamburger-flipper jobs?’  Democrats always deride those sorts of jobs when Republicans are in the White House.  Elsewhere, Dogecoin price jumps amid Coinbase debut what with Dogecoin being the 6th most valuable cryptocurrency.
  80. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signs into law a $101 billion spending bill for Florida in 2022.  Next, extremely popular U.S. Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, announced today that he is going to seek a second term.  Congratulations.  Speaking of Louisiana, state lawmakers pass a bill allowing its citizens to conceal carry handguns sans a license.  The bill will move to the desk of Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA. Moving on, President Donald J. Trump is going to be the headliner at North Carolina’s GOP convention and will speak on Saturday, June 5, 2021, in Greenville.  Meanwhile, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the Biden regime’s agenda will help the GOP retake both houses of Congress in 2022.  (Note- this is why the regime wants to legalize 11 million new illegal aliens as citizens).  Speaking of Rep. Mace, conservative icon Todd Starnes says of Mace that Snopes labeled the recent attack on the Rep.’s home a ‘rumor.’  Wow.
  81. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– A new poll says that a majority of Americans support the DEATH PENALTY.  Next, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, says of the U.S. House of Representatives dictate that ‘everyone must wear a mask’ as being NOTHING but political theater.  Elsewhere, things just keep piling on: former Rep. Katie Hill, DS-CA 25th congressional district, finds herself forced by a judge to pay $219 thousand in legal fees over a revenge porn case.  As you recall, Rep. Hill was forced to relinquish her seat after being involved in various sexual liaisons with numerous people including campaign staffers and office staffers.  Poor Katie.  Boohoo.  In other Democrat loser news, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, won a lawsuit lodged against him over his totalitarian lockdowns and restrictions in the Empire State.  However, the courts have ordered California to pay $2 million in damages for its harsh lockdowns of Golden State churches.   Elsewhere, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, says it’s a ‘national disgrace to fly the Black Lives Matter flag at U.S. embassies around the world.’  Finally, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says the Biden regime’s dictate of NO fireworks at Mt. Rushmore this July 4, 2021, is because the ‘left hates celebrating America.’  Amen.
  82. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is co-sponsoring the “Only Old Glory Act” that will ban all other flags- like the LGBTQIA+ flag, the Black Lives Matter flags, and other flags at ALL U.S. government buildings, embassies, and other structures around the world and in the country.  In other news, we continue hearing reports that actor Matthew McConaughey might run for governor of Texas, but NO one knows for what he stands.  HOW ABOUT TELLING THE WORLD WTF YOU STAND FOR, BOY?  Meanwhile, we hear a new report that says that AFTER Rep. Liz Cheney, R-WY at large district, had to spend $58,000 on private security, she was so afraid of Trump supporters.  Folks, recall this woman from office NOW.   Finally, U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has confirmed that he is the subject of an FBI investigation (2020 Elections bull crap) and denies any wrongdoing.  
  83. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– Texas lawmakers canceled Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban’s anti-National Anthem kibosh.  Cuban is a POS and what’s more, he should move his Karl Marx-loving ass to Beijing where they will gladly take this reprobate loser in and make him one of theirs.  Speaking of Beijing- which we seem to do all the time now- Rep. Jim Hagedorn, R-MN 1st congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci could very well be ‘covering up for the Chi-Coms when it comes to the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu and what hand- if any- the political hack had in loosing it upon the world.  Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, won a challenge to campaign reimbursement rules.  A three-judge panel said it’s okay for a candidate to use campaign contributions to reimburse personal money he put into his political campaign.  Democrats are wailing and sniveling over this BIG WIN!
  84. 2021 Thursday Q: Miscellaneous News I–  One of the last- IF not the last- attorney on the so-called “Dream Team” involved in the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial back in 1995, F. Lee Bailey, died today at age 87.  Over the course of his lifetime, he defended numerous BIG-NAME personalities and celebrities.  Next, gay journalist Andy Ngo snuck into his hometown of Portland, Oregon, and got yet another beat-down from Antifa.  He was able to seek refuge in a hotel while a howling mob of slavering lunatics tried to get in to lynch the dumb bastard.  YOU can’t go home, Andy, these people want to KILL YOU.  Elsewhere, the Food and Drug Administration is encouraging the American people NOT to eat cicadas (who the hell is eating flipping bugs- we aren’t the Chi-Coms) if one is allergic to seafood.  (Note- anyone who eats insects in this country should be scooped up and deported to communist China).  
  85. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Supreme Court News– For the first time since being seated on the U.S. Supreme Court, newest Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett sided against Associate Justice Clarence Thomas.  The case concerning computer law, namely a Georgia law enforcement officer Sgt. Nathan Van Buren was in trouble for violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 in that he was paid money to do a search on a license plate using his police department computer.  Lower courts said what he did was a violation of not just state law but federal law and thus his case eventually made its way to SCOTUS.   Coney not only joined in the 6-3 decision but also wrote the majority opinion.  The three justices in opposition were Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. 
  86. 2021 Thursday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– two things- one we heard yesterday and one today.  Yesterday, we learned that enfeebled Robert S. Mueller III, chief ankle-biting dog for the Democrats, is going to teach a course on the BOGUS Trump-Russia collusion narrative at the University of Virginia School of Law.  What a farce.  Today, we learned that Rep. Alexandria “Baby Evita” Ocasio-Cortez, aka the Fly, aka Sandy Cortez (birthname), CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district, is bitching and moaning about the condition of her pobrecita abuelita’s home in Puerto Rico.  Apparently, the place is a DUMP, and the little communist is blaming President Donald J. Trump for not making things ‘right’ after Hurricane Maria.  As Greg Kelly on Newsmax so rightly pointed out, “Girl, you are in Congress, you own a Tesla (rental most likely), and there are nearly 14 Home Depot stores across the island so get your lazy, hypocritical butt down there and fix her home yourself.’  (We augmented his words with ours).  Look, this is how communists are- they blame everyone else for their wrongdoings, misdoings, mistakes, you name it, they blame it (read George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”).  Look, “Fly,” shut the hell up and send your granny some money.  
  87. 2021 Thursday T: The Wrap-Up– First, a Singapore-flagged vessel carrying hazardous chemicals has broken up off the coast of Sri Lanka.  There goes their tourism industry.  In other news, the intersection where George Floyd died in Minneapolis has been reopened.  Thus, it would appear that ‘George Floyd Square’ is no mas.  Ah, well, c’est la vie.  Next, as ‘vacation season’ arrives in the era of COVID-19, everything is going up besides the price of gasoline.  Rentals and airlines tickets and everything else associated with Americans enjoying themselves is going up, up, and up thanks to the bumbling ineptitude of the Biden regime.
  88. 2022 Friday: What could be going on today?  Stick around and find out along with us.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 19, 1973, the Beach Boys released perhaps one of the best live albums of the decade, “The Beach Boys In Concert.”  The live lineup features Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (electric piano and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals), augmented by their supporting cast of Billy Hinsche (guitar, keyboards), Ed Carter (bass), Robin Kenyatta (woodwinds), Carl Muñoz (keyboards), and Mike Kowalski (drums and percussion).  From start to finish, this album demonstrates what a powerful live act the Beach Boys became in the early-to-mid 1970s.  We can remember seeing them in downtown Bakersfield, California, around this time and the crowd was going insane from the opening riffs of “Sail On Sailor” to the closer, “Fun, Fun, Fun.”  Every song one loves and then some are included here.  We remember back in the day a bootleg Beach Boys album that came out around the time “Surf’s Up” did, entitled, “Re-Surfin’ USA.”  It is too bad that those songs were not added to this in a beefed-up version because that album was amazing being in superb sound quality.  Ah, well, we hope that everyone will seek this one out wherever you shop for the finest in music and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

153. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JUNE 02, 2022

1998 Tuesday: California voters passed Proposition 227 on this date. The act abolished the state’s 30-year-old bilingual education program by requiring that ALL children must undergo instruction in English. This is how it should be as every nation has an official language so the illegal alien-loving scumbags that want every child taught in their native language need to go to prison for subverting the nation—hear that Democrats?

Sure, REAL good…
  55. 2016 Thursday: Much to the anger of the Turkish government, the German government plows ahead with the recognizing the Turkish massacre of more than 1 million Armenians during World War I as the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE committed exclusively by Turkish troops.  Evil.  Elsewhere, a Trump rally in San Jose, California, sees loads of leftists pouring out into the streets, attacking Trump supporters and law enforcement wherever they find them; some people are hospitalized.

  59. 2020 Tuesday: Thanks to infusion of dark money from the Chinese Communist Party (or so the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes), unrest in American cities continues unabated.  Many cities- both large and small- continue to suffer violent riots and angry protests, supposedly over the murder of George Floyd but now, many are not so sure.   At the same time, the Chinese Wuhan Virus Bat Flu continues causing problems which is somewhat redundant as both the riots and the disease are Beijing’s response to Trump out-negotiating them on the U.S.-communist China Trade Deal.  Here are the COVID-19 stats for the planet today: 6,325,603 confirmed cases, 377,460 confirmed deaths, but 2,727,679 confirmed recoveries which is excellent, as far as recoveries go.
  60. 2020 Tuesday A: In the United States- the place hardest hit by the Bat Flu, here are the numbers for today:  1,866,279 confirmed cases, 107,506 confirmed deaths, but 416,319 confirmed recoveries.  Note: U.S. recoveries would be much, much higher if MOST Blue State governors would not conceal the numbers which would make the number of deaths appear far less.  Shame on them.  Moving on, in the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 115,310 confirmed cases, 4,286 confirmed deaths, but Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  Next, in Hawaii, here are the numbers: 652 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 608 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Governor David Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, here are the numbers: 22,130 confirmed cases, 1,129 confirmed deaths, but that dingbat Governor Jay Inslee won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  
  61. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 172,360,613 confirmed cases, +403,338, 3,699,783  confirmed deaths, +9,000 and 155,072,367 confirmed recoveries, +65,616.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,149,029 confirmed cases, UP 11,789 from yesterday’s reporting, 610,912 confirmed deaths, UP 603,[vii] and 27,975,613 confirmed recoveries, UP 46,126.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]  
  62. 2021 Wednesday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 292,966 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 166,643 deaths  
  63. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,791,300 confirmed cases, 63,274 confirmed deaths, and 2,056,809 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,327,989 confirmed cases, 36,924 confirmed deaths, and 1,965,252 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,332 confirmed cases, 500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 439,337 confirmed cases, 5,843 confirmed deaths, and 213,533 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wisconsin, home of Governor Tony Evers, another POS like yesterday’s Ralph “KKK” Northam: they have 674,480 confirmed cases, 7,875 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[ix]   
  64. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,517 confirmed cases, 6,415 confirmed deaths, and 832,764 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Cyprus, 102nd country on the list, a Greek civilization hampered by loads of Turks: 72,515 cases of the virus, 360 confirmed deaths and 69,738 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  65. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,600.38, UP 25.07 points (+0.073%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,756.33, UP 19.85 points (+0.14%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,208.12, UP 6.08 points (+0.14%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.74 per barrel, -0.09 (-0.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,910.90 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $28.31 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.34%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,194.90 per troy oz, +2.20 +0.18%) while the price of COPPER is $4.60 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,850.80 per troy oz, -8.93 (-0.31%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $25,500.00 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Danish Krone, one greenback equals 6.09 and in Djiboutian Franc, a buck equals 177.50 and in Dominican Peso, one dollar equals 56.85 of theirs.[xiv]        
  66. 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 $4.204 per gallon, $2.861 in Florida, $3.939 in Hawaii, and $3.579 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. District of Columbia: $3.171.  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- Puerto Rico: $3.244 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,359,625,572,309 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #72 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the disaster on the southern border and yet, she has yet to show up there to do her job.  Speaking of this disaster, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is exacerbating the border crisis by canceling illegal alien protection protocols.’ 
  68. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Beijing orders the shutdown of the June 4th Museum that commemorates what the Chi-Coms did to pro-democracy protesters in Tiananmen Square back on June 4, 1989.  The Chi-Coms claim the museum lacked the proper business license and ordered their closure.  What a load of crap.   Next, we learn today that Iran could soon strike the United States with an EMT weapon which would obliterate not only the U.S. power grid but that of Canada and Mexico at the same time.  (Note- it’s about time we drop a big flipping nuke atop the Iranians.  NOW).  Elsewhere, in advance of the midnight deadline for the Israelis to form a new government, they managed to cobble one together that will signal the END of the Benjamin Netanyahu era.  (Note- expect Iran and their stooges in Hamas and Hezbollah begin lighting Israel up yet again).
  69. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– As Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s star continues to collapse, he has both a movie and a book coming out.  (Note- why is it losers such as “Phony Tony” and Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov[xviii] never see that they are so full of self-importance that it does them in when they take things too far?  Hubris, folks, hubris).  We hear 3,200 pages of Fauci’s emails show him in deep with the Chi-Coms, so the question rises ‘what did YOU know, Dr. Fauci, and when did YOU know it?’  POS.  (Speaking of Fauci, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says there is NO way ‘Phony Tony’ should be given a pass on COVID).  Next, West Virginia is giving away prizes of $1 million as well as hunting licenses and even firearms to get people to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization has approved the Chi-Coms’ Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine for immediate emergency deployment.  It will be going to the Third World.  Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘all evidence leads directly to the Wuhan Institute of Virology when it comes to determining WHO is responsible for trashing much of the world.’  Amen.
  70. 2021 Wednesday I: Business News– the Federal Reserve says that even with ‘hiring troubles and rising prices, U.S. growth is ‘gaining speed.’  Uh, we’ll see.  Next, Papa John Schnatter says ‘America’s small businesses can survive COVID-19 but they sure as heck cannot survive tax hikes.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore told Newsmax TV that ‘more stimulus checks could damage the U.S. economy.’
  71. 2021 Wednesday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Pennsylvania Republicans are flocking to Arizona to observe the ongoing 2020 Election audit occurring in the Copper State. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday K: National Security News– Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that ‘Vladimir Putin is indeed testing feeble old Joe Biden what with all the ongoing hacks of infrastructure and now JBS- the largest meat-packing company in the world.’ 
  73. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– People are still responding in shock to the words that drooled out of Joe Biden’s mumbling mouth yesterday in which, he claimed that ‘white supremacism is the greatest danger facing our country- so says U.S. intel agencies, NOT the Chi-Coms, NOT the Russians, NOT Iran, NOT radicals like Muslim extremists, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter thugs.’  People are aghast at the constant finger-pointing.  Give us some examples you feeble old fool but beware- when you continue ginning up anger against something that no longer exists, what you claim to fear could quite easily return.   
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  Feeling their oats, the state prosecution in the case of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is seeking 30 years imprisonment for the now-convicted cop.  The defense, on the other hand, is seeking time served.  Period.  What we do know is that the feds are going to take a whack at this already beaten apple which strikes us as double jeopardy.  Still, they have to because the majority of the chef-authors at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day believe that due to the corruption of the original trial, Officer Chauvin will get a new trial and most likely will be acquitted.  Meanwhile, the Defund the Police Movement is losing momentum as crime is going up and cities are rushing funding back to law enforcement to stop this massive spike in violent crime.  Speaking of the crime wave, the Miami Police Department’s chief has said it’s ‘going to be a long sizzling summer what with all the shootings occurring around the country.’  Finally, an off-duty FBI agent by the name of Eduardo Valdivia has been charged with attempted murder after getting into an altercation with an unarmed individual aboard a Metro train in a Washington, D.C. suburb in Maryland last year on December 15, 2020.  The fight led to the agent trying to shoot the man.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, one of the BIG ARCHITECTS behind the aforementioned Defund the Police Movement is spending hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to maintain private security around her 24/7/365.  Wow.  Hypocrite.  Next, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said of President Donald J. Trump that he touched a nerve among the American people who felt left out of the system.  Amen.   Moving on- and this is extremely embarrassing- the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See is trying to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag.  WTF.  Is no place free from this tomfoolery?  Enough with the push of everything gay, we might be better off if the Chi-Coms took the country over.  Enough is enough.  Finally, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, communist, cannot take any more- she threw her hat into the right to rip the governorship of her state away from RINO sell-out Doug Ducey.  TWO LOSERS.
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Carol Walker a horse photographer and advocate reported to Tucker Carlson that the Biden regime is sending wild horses to slaughter.  This is NOT right and yet another example of overreach by a criminal regime.   Speaking of the criminal Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump lambasted the regime over its dismantling of the successful “remain in Mexico policy.’  Speaking of the 45th president, he closed his ‘From the Desk of the 45th President’ blog. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: Miscellaneous News I– The Trump Organization is putting up its Washington, D.C. hotel once again.  Next, WOKE threats pushed ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis to move to protect girls’ and women’s sports in the Sunshine State.  Speaking of governors, the one in Ohio- Mike DeWine, RINO, is under fire because he supports both the 1619 Project which is bulls**t and Critical Race Theory which is equally bulls**t.  Vote this POS out of office.  NOW.  Elsewhere, a new report says that sexual assault and racism seem to be the way of life at Virginia Military Institute.  Whoa.
  78. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3565 with a $51 million up for grabs- 09, 23, 27, 28, 41, and Mega 12.  Draw #3565- Out of 131,757 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $22,267 apiece.  One ticket was sold at Uncle Pete’s Café in Westminster, CA 92683 and the other was sold at Eagle Energy in Paso Robles, CA 93446.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #851 with a $268 million jackpot on the line: 06, 07, 11, 66, 67, and Powerball 19.  Out of 92,910 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,168 apiece.
  79. 2022 Thursday: Folks, we encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever the flipping Chi-Coms and their stooges in the White House are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys- “Holland”- came out on January 08, 1973 and was one of their best.  The band at this time had abandoned the West Coast for the Atlantic coast- in Holland- and produced some stunning material.  The lineup once again featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals).  Every tune on this album is excellent, opening with “Sail On Sailor” sung by Blondie Chapin, the absolutely love psychedelic tune, “Steamboat,” sung by Carl and Dennis.  The song has some of the best guitar work of Carl yet, a mind-altering but beautiful lead.  Next, is a three-part “California Saga” sung by Mike and Brian.  Side two opens with “The Trader,” another superb song sung by Carl to the bluesy “Leaving this Town” sung by Blondie and Ricky to Dennis’ tune, “Only With You,” sung by Carl.  The closing track, “Funky Pretty,” is sung by most of the Beach Boys and a stunning tune.  Most of these tunes would show up on the upcoming live album and would be gems.  Oh- on the vinyl version there was an extra disc with a Brian Wilson tale set to music- “Mount Vernon and Fairway.”  Fascinating.  Absolutely amazing from start almost to the finish which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and to make it a part of your daily listening rotation.   You will be glad you did.

  77. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #71 for “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be ‘Border Czar,’ a ‘no-show job’ for which, she receives a paycheck.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ a new report says that when the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece told him to appoint her to head this prestigious, national security job, her aides were in a state of panic not knowing what any of them were to do.  A bunch of flipping hacks.[xvi]  Anyhow, “Methuselah Joe” Biden is pushing Congress to get him a bill on his desk that he can sign that will LEGALIZE 11 million illegal aliens.[xvii]

  79. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– It has been decided that COVID-19 variants will be given Greek letters rather than the name of the country in which they pop up.  Guess we don’t want to hurt the feelings of places like the People’s Republic of China, South Africa, Vietnam, and India.  Folks, it is what it is.  Next, a recent poll says that 60-percent of the American people oppose Chi-Vi passports for dining and that 55-percent oppose employers demanding proof of Bat Flu vaccinations.  We concur.   A recent TIPP poll reports that 55-percent of Americans believe the release of the ‘VID was NO accident while 44-percent believe that the Chi-Coms did indeed create this crap in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Elsewhere, Gordon Chang told Newsmax TV that ‘Joe Biden could conceal U.S. complicity in the origins of the Chi-Vi and subsequent spread when HIS report on the pandemic comes out.’  Finally, Rep.

  82. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News I– The ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ fails to pass in the U.S. Senate.  Part of the bill setting up this so-called ‘commission’ labels everyone who was in Washington, D.C., that day as insurrectionists.[xviii]  Wow.  Next, left-wing losers are claiming the General Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., called for a ‘coup’ against the U.S. government, an accusation he says is ‘bulls**t.’  Amen.  In other Political News, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, appears in an RNC advertisement slamming the policies of decrepit old Joe Biden.   Elsewhere, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says, “Not here, not now” with the defense of the Girls’ Sports Fairness Law which prohibits trannys,  i.e., chicks with dicks from corrupting girls’ and women’s sports teams.  Transgender-lovers are suing the Sunshine State to overturn this excellent law.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump endorses Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, for another term.
  83. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News II– Joe Biden went to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to pander to black folks on the 100-year anniversary of the Tulsa Race Riots and Massacre.  Joe claimed in 100 years that ‘no American president has ever come to Tulsa to commemorate this horrible time.’  Well, last year, President Donald J. Trump visited the city around the time of the 99th anniversary of the detestable event which sent the liberals berserk.  Former Executive Director Harrison Floyd for the Trump campaign’s outreach to black Americans pointed this fact out.  Of course, liberals won’t believe this.  Back to Joe Biden, when questioned as to whether survivors of the massacre should get some sort of reparations for what they suffered, Biden zipped his lips.  NO comment.  Finally, a bitter fight looms over the filibuster.
  84. 2021 Tuesday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– In a Montana dispute, the U.S. Supreme Court backs Native American tribal law in the state.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch rejected challenges to a Colorado disaster law used by state government to ban churches from being open.  Oh, well.  In other SCOTUS news, major rulings await over the last month of the current term.  We shall see.

  86. 2021 Tuesday O: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Former Officer Derek Chauvin of the Minneapolis Police Department is now facing federal charges.  It would appear that due to all sorts of shenanigans by activists who made it onto his jury that he might receive a NEW trial.  Thus, the feds want to put him in double jeopardy by charging him with civil rights violations.  My, my, my.  In other news, the July 2021 deadline for survivors of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, by Muslim jihadists to get help is fast approaching.  Elsewhere, two people were shot at a Los Angeles County firehouse by a fellow firefighter.  Details hopefully to come.
  87. 2021 Tuesday P: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– In yet another, near-daily disclosure that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom knows he is a goner, he has ordered state officials to create a TASK FORCE to look into the matter of providing reparations to the descendants of former slaves.  As everyone knows, California was on the side of the Union during the Civil War and slavery was not permitted in the Golden State.  Governor “Nazi” Newsom—you are going down, you worthless, conniving, closet homo loser come November 2021.  Going to be amazing to see you take the boot up your scrawny little ass.   In other news, former President Barack Hussein Obama admitted to the New York Times that with feeble old Joe Biden hiring his staff, he is the one calling the shots.  Finally- and we don’t believe this story- Arizona says it plans to use Zyklon-B gas with which to execute death row inmates.  Say, wasn’t this the exact same gas employed by the Nazis in the death camps?  Hence why we think this is a bogus story.
  88. 2021 Tuesday Q: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– A BIG ROUND of applause for New York State Attorney General Leticia James- Josef Stalin and Lavrentiy Beria would be extremely proud of this communist POS who has launched a criminal probe into the Trump Organization.  “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” said KGB thug Lavrentiy Beria.  What a banana republic-style circus.   We hope you go deep in the running for this year’s award…
  89. 2021 Tuesday R: Religion News– Pope Francis criminalizes sexual abuse of adults by priests.  Seems like this SHOULD ALWAYS have been a crime.
  90. 2021 Tuesday S: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Space debris slammed into the International Space Station and damaged its robotic arm.  (Note- seems like it would be great if we could re-establish the space shuttle program and outfit one of them with massive nets that could begin scooping up all this crap and then either returning it to Earth for destruction or dropping it onto the moon for safekeeping).
  91. 2021 Tuesday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1664 with a $34 million jackpot on the line: 07, 11, 33, 58, 63, and Mega 23.  Out of 47,494 winning tickets, the highest numbers were 39 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $377 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys marked a distinct move into much more social consciousness that began on the preceding album.  The Beach Boys were touring college and university campuses, were all about conservation, the grandfather of today’s loony tunes ‘green movement.’  Beards were getting longer, hair well past the collars and what with the departure of Bruce Johnston- asked to leave because he would not grow a beard, embrace Transcendental Meditation- the band brought into South African musicians, BLACK MUSICIANS to complete the social consciousness move.  Thus, we have a new album, “Carl and the Passions- So Tough,” an album that came out on May 15, 1972.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals- Dennis was having hand problems due to a major cut that prevented him from pounding the skins).  The album opens with the rocker, “You Need a Mess of Help to Stand Alone,” sung by Brian and Carl.  Next, “Here She Comes” sung by Ricky Fataar followed by “He Come Down” sung by Carl and Al followed by “Marcella,” sung by Carl and a damned good live tune.  Side two picks up with “Hold on Dear Brother” sung by Fataar.  Following that, we have “Make It Good” sung by Dennis and then, the lovely “All This Is That” sung by Al and Carl to the final tune, the strange, “Cuddle Up,” sung by Dennis.  Fans will note the distinct changes to the voice of Dennis which was becoming affected by tobacco and alcohol.  This is a great album- one we hope everyone will check out.  Back when it came out, the record company paired it with a reissue of “Pet Sounds,” back when vinyl was king.  You can still find it at select online sellers of fine music.  Enjoy.

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

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

[iii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band” album appeared on Tuesday, 22-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[xvii] Note- when the voting audits are complete and the fraud a proven fact, every single act, appointment, and directive from the fraudulent Biden White House will be null and void.  Can you imagine when ICE and CBP are turned loose and begin rounding up and deporting the millions of illegal aliens roaming the American countryside?  Perhaps they will deputize millions of Americans to aid the Border Patrol in rounding up and loading aboard buses, trains, airplanes, and even onto freighters and sending this human flotsam and jetsam back to their rathole countries?  Going to be amazing.

[xviii] U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian leader of the Democratic-Socialist Party has ruled out Joe Biden creating her much-beloved January 06, 2021 ‘commission,’ the one by which the Dems can blame Trump supporters for the FALSE FLAG operations of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
