1961 Sunday: An out-of-control mob attacks the Freedom Riders in Anniston and Birmingham, Alabama while a horde of Southern Democrat racists burns their bus.

Trump is our president.  He will thwart them.

  64. 2020 Thursday: The left produces yet another limp-wristed sniveler on this date.  Self-proclaimed ‘whistleblower’ Dr. Rick Wright sits before the U.S. Congress crying and whining that ‘NO ONE LISTENED TO ME’ when in fact everyone was working hard to accomplish the same thing: defeating the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Speaking of communist China’s ‘gift to the world that won’t stop giving,’ here are the latest statistics: globally, we have 4,434,590 confirmed number of cases, 301,937 confirmed deaths, and 1,583,929 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,446,802 confirmed number of cases, 86,465 confirmed deaths, and 249,422 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats: first, California: 71,141 confirmed number of cases, 2,934 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries- what’s up, Gov.

  66. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 283,148 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 176,461 deaths.

  70. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.121 per gallon, $2.896 in Florida, $3.850 in Hawaii, and $3.530 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Tennessee: $2.889.  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- Azerbaijan: $2.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,286,444,952,247 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.
  71. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Soon, the centurions guarding our southern border may step aside.  U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers are chafing beneath the ultra-left-wing policies of the Biden regime.  Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, says that CBP and ICE are being overwhelmed by the flood pouring across the border (which is why we encourage the laying in of minefields, anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, anti-boat obstacles, layers of concertina razor wire out into the middle of the Rio Grande as well as Foo Gas pits (liquified napalm) in high-traffic areas for illegal aliens.  We must do whatever we must do to save our country).
  72. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– thanks to the massive cash infusion dumped into the laps of the Palestinian thugs, rockets continue flying across the border between Gaza and Israel- as well as southbound from Lebanon and westbound from Syria- into Israel.  The Israelis are taking them down, but the barrages are growing, and the Joe Biden regime won’t stand with Israel.  Where are the other signatories of the Abraham Accords?  Why are they NOT demanding the human fecal matter in Gaza stop the attacks?  In other horribly shocking news, the United States is sending ADDITIONAL FINANCIAL AID to the Palestinian maggots in Gaza.  We say the only aid they need is a few dozen neutron bombs.  Reclaim the land.
  73. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information I–  President Donald J. Trump touts his vaccines and says that ‘Joe Biden had NOTHING to do with them.’  True, absolutely true.  Meanwhile, evangelical pastor Franklin Graham is warning Christians NOT to wait too long and miss out on getting the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Uh, Pastor Graham- we are not going to get this crap injected into our bodies.  It is unlike any other vaccine in the world.  It is RNA-based as no other vaccine in the history of medicine is.   Elsewhere, Wal-Mart says that vaccinated patrons will no longer have to wear face masks while New York and New Jersey- no matter what ‘the science’ says are going to require facial coverings for everyone.  Period.
  74. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information II– Next, drooling old Joe Biden says ‘it’s a wonderful day that the masks can come off’…yet, somehow, they aren’t.  Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says that ‘NO matter what the Centers for Disease Control says, everyone in the House chamber will wear masks except when speaking on the floor.’  Oh, well.   Elsewhere, a new poll says that young people believe that in order for everyone to return to work and/or school, they are going to have to get the Bat Fu Yuk vaccine or no go.  The youngsters have drunk long and deep from the well of Kool-Aid.  Speaking of this insanity, Delta Airlines says (get this) ‘ALL new hires must get the China Virus vaccine but existing employees, well, they don’t have to…’  WTF?
  75. 2021 Friday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  As if we required additional proof that the 2020 Elections were corrupt in a variety of states, Dominion Voting Systems WON’T provide the passwords for their tabulators to the Arizona Senate’s investigation into election integrity last November.  IF there was ever a reason to go to war with Canada, this is among the top reasons.  Canada- force YOUR company to cooperate or Americans will begin boycotting your crap-hole country.  Speaking of 2020, loser Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, the darling of the Democratic Party now that she has lost her position as GOP Conference chair- says she ‘regrets voting for Donald Trump in 2020.’  Oh, really- YOU voted for President Trump?  We find that difficult to believe.
  76. 2021 Friday K: Political News I–  the House GOP elected Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, to fill the shoes of the disloyal Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, today.  President Donald J. Trump gave her a thumb’s up seal of approval.   Speaking of the president, we hear that MAGA rallies will commence soon, most likely in the early summer.[xviii]  Fantastic.  Next, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, now refuses to accept any additional federal money for expanded unemployment benefits and will instead offer EVERY employee who returns to work a $2,000 incentive.  Excellent.   In other news, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka the Fly aka Sandy Cortez is expressing TERROR of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district.  Rep. Greene is puzzled as to WHY the so-called “FLY” is fearful of debating her Green New Deal with Rep. Greene?  If she believes in the GND, then she needs to debate it in public.
  77. 2021 Friday L: Political News II– Recently, an Antifa protester was heard to say, “I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL BLACK PEOPLE ARE LYNCHING WHITE PEOPLE.”  So much for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  (Note- we predicted years back that it would be a few years before Antifa, and BLM began carrying out their own beheading videos of people they claim to be enemies.  That’s why we have guns).  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has labeled Hamas what it is: a terrorist group.  Good.  Next, the U.S. House of Representatives agrees on a ‘bipartisan panel’ to investigate the events the ‘Capitol Hill Riots’ of January 06, 2021, the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in the history of America and her politics.   We learn from Tucker Carlson this evening on Fox News Channel that the U.S. Department of Justice has loads of unreleased photographic evidence that could blow the entire sham out of the water.  This, we got to see.  Moving on, a recent Rasmussen poll says that liberal news viewers are woefully uneducated on the massive rise in violent crime across the country.
  78. 2021 Friday M: Political News III– A federal judge in Alabama upholds an anti-riot bill.  Next, a new anti-abortion bill in Texas is expected to receive Governor Greg Abbott’s signature.  Meanwhile, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is fighting to protect his job now and is offering $30 million tax breaks to initiate new film and TV projects, the very same ones he drove out of the state to seek less-expensive locations for their work.  Next, since Amazon had access to a mailbox used by its employees, the union vote they won in the Peach State could be overturned.  Whoa.  We are surprised the workers ‘didn’t vote’ to unionize.  That seemed mighty peculiar that all of a sudden, the became lovers of Jeff Bezos.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– In another detestable (and anti-American) Biden regime news, ‘Usurper Joe’ is going to cancel President Donald J. Trump’s ‘Garden of American Heroes’ project.  What a bum.   Speaking of the ‘drooler,’ Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd congressional district, says the ‘Joe Biden White House is out of control.’  Meanwhile, regarding the aforementioned continuation of mask mandates, Joe Biden- always out of step with whatever is going on, says ‘it’s a momentous day for America that we no longer have to wear masks.’  What?  In other Biden regime news, Joe tossed out President Donald J. Trump’s ban on illegal aliens who would become burdensome to American taxpayers because of illness.  That’s great, Joe.  Yet another chink in the Cloward & Piven chain of crumbling the United States.
  80. 2021 Friday O: Business News– Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says it’s ‘appalling’ that the $5 million ransom was paid to Darkside, the company that devastated the Colonial Pipeline.  Speaking of Darkside, they are now said to be targeting Japan’s Toshiba.   Joe Biden, however, won’t admit to the $4-5 million ransom being paid to the Russian government-approved hackers.  (Note- when Russia was said to be paying bounties for the deaths of Americans, they wanted President Trump to go to war with the Russkies.  Seems like Joe should be dropping nukes atop Moscow right now).  Elsewhere, even with the Colonial pipeline up and running, the gas crunch is affecting Washington, D.C.  Go figure.
  81. 2021 Friday P: Miscellaneous News I– California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base will be renamed Space Force Base.  Elsewhere, Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt, GOP, has been booted from the Tulsa Race Riot Panel over him being insensitive to the plight of people of color by signing a bill banning Critical Race Theory.  Next, Columbus, Ohio, has settled on a payment of $10 million to the family of Andre Hill whom a law enforcement officer shot dead last year.  Like the settlement for the family of George Floyd prior to the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin so, too, does this settlement come ahead of the trial of now-fired Police Officer Adam Coy who also is facing a murder charge.  Officer Coy won’t receive a fair trial either.
  82. 2021 Friday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Poor Chrissy Teigen just got dumped by Target who canceled her line of cookware once information came to light that she is a cyberbully.  Wow.  Didn’t see that one coming.   In other WOKE news, Norman Public Schools in Oklahoma paid $22,750 to equity trainers to indoctrinate their students.  What a load of crap.  Let’s return to the DREAM of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.- he had us on the right track and now, WOKE is everything.  Sad.   Speaking of WOKE, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov’ still cannot cop to his sexual harassment claims by putting the onus on the women he was feeling up.  What a guy.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Murray Wilson- the Beach Boys’ manager and father of three of them- was an abusive POS and by this time had damaged son, Brian’s eardrum following several slaps upside the head; yet Brian still cranked out the tunes.  “All Summer Long” came out on July 13, 1964, and continued the group’s meteoric rise to heights heretofore unseen in American music.  The band featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals).  The tunes on this one are ones we cherish to this day such as “I Get Around,” “All Summer Long,” “Hushabye,” “Little Honda,” “Wendy,” and “Don’t Back Down.”  One gets a varied selection of surfin’ tunes, hot rod tunes, and hot chicks on the beach tunes which are as delightful now as they were more than half a century ago.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be extremely happy you did.  Enjoy.

Currently, Joe is shy 180,087 deaths.

  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

  64. 2020 Monday: Well, it keeps getting better: we now know we have “Murder Hornets” in the Pacific Northwest.  Although some claim Japan is their homeland, experts now tell us it is communist China where these monstrous insects call home.  Coincidence?  You are the judge.  COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis update: confirmed cases around the world: 3,582,469, confirmed deaths are 251,365, but confirmed recoveries are 1,162,563 so things are looking better.  As for the United States, confirmed cases are 1,201,101, confirmed deaths are 69,579, and confirmed recoveries are 159,789.  In Hawaii, we have 621 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths but 548 confirmed recoveries.  Yet, in the Islands, we live under the authoritarianism of Governor David Ige.  Colleagues in California report 55,657 confirmed cases, 2,254 confirmed deaths and NO- we repeat- NO numbers for confirmed recoveries.  What are you hiding, Gov. Gavin Newsom?  Colleagues up in Washington state report 15,462 confirmed cases what with confirmed deaths at 841 and- like California- NO recovery confirmation numbers.  Gov. Jay Inslee, what are YOU hiding (asks Chef Vladimir?)?
  65. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 154,940,945 confirmed cases, +477,975, 3,39,615  confirmed deaths, +12,655, and 133,045,378 confirmed recoveries, +75,532.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,268,541 confirmed cases, UP 36,236 from yesterday’s reporting, 592,292 confirmed deaths, UP 734,[vii] and 25,961,286 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,716.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  66. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 277,565 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 240.56 days, 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 185,968 deaths. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,748,785 confirmed cases, 61,986 confirmed deaths, and 1,996,486 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,249,535 confirmed cases, 35,399 confirmed deaths, and 1,817,665 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,732 confirmed cases, 484 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 409,585 confirmed cases, 5,567 confirmed deaths, and 200,937 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wyoming, a place with a horrible congresswoman: they have 57,142 confirmed cases, 710 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[ix]   Meanwhile, effective July 01, 2021, ALL remaining in-state and local COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions will end, so says Governor Ron DeSantis.  Awesome.
  68. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,697 confirmed cases, 6,369 confirmed deaths, and 831,090 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Uruguay, a place that was once home to Nazis: 204,120 cases of the virus, 2,796 confirmed deaths and 176,783 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  69. 2021 Tuesday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,133.03, UP 19.80 points (+0.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,633.50, DOWN 261.62 points (-1.88%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,164.66, DOWN 28.00 points (-0.67%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.22 per barrel, +0.53 (+0.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,778.40 per troy oz., +2.60 (+0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $26.55 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.03%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,240.40 per troy oz, +8.60 (+0.70%) while the price of COPPER is $4.56 per pound, +0.03 (+0.74%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,973.33 per troy oz, +8.65 (+0.29%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.18.     In Pakistani Rupee, one greenback equals 153.10 and in Panamanian Balboa, a buck equals 1.00 and in Papua New Guinean Kina, one dollar equals 3.42 of theirs.[xiv]  
  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.050 per gallon, $2.834 in Florida, $3.796 in Hawaii, and $3.488 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New Mexico: $2.879.  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- Malaysian: $1.887 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,247,962,760,073 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.
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is visiting the Ukraine today.[xviii]   Next, Iran confirms the authenticity of tape where Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry[xix] commits various Logan Act violations by sharing with the Iranians at least, we repeat- at least– 200 separate incidences of the Mossad carrying out surreptitious activities against Iranian interests in the hellhole of Syria.  In other news related to overseas activities, former Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller- part of the Trump administration- is urging the Biden administration NOT to let its guard down regarding the use of directed-energy weapons on U.S. personnel worldwide.  He calls it ‘an act of war’ and suggests that even if it’s ‘nonlethal,’ we owe it to our people to investigate so as to be better protected in the future.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Covid-19 Updates And Additional Information– First, early information is suggesting that the COVID-19-caused pandemic shutdowns of cities may be in the preliminary stages of reversal.  Next, Pfizer seeks full clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for the use of its Chi-Vi vaccine for everyone.  Elsewhere, U.S. states are not ordering their full allotments of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu over a lessening demand for the questionable inoculations.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Joe Biden Regime News I–   We learn today that thanks to Joe Biden being president (well, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘president’), the death tax is going to rise to 40-61-percent meaning their family’s tragedy will also see financial rape of the grieving survivors.  Wow.  Thank you, President Obama, uh, we mean, “El Presidente Joe Biden.”   Meanwhile, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, DS, says the regime is moving ahead with reuniting illegal alien families torn asunder by the Trump administration.   Elsewhere, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley is dropping his opposition to changes in sexual assault policies.  Wow.  Sell-out.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he is considering a slick budgetary maneuver whereby he can legalize tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of our country.  Gee whiz, thank you, Chuckie, thank you.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– the House GOP is calling for an oversight hearing on the Capitol Hill Police Department and their actions on FALSE FLAG OPERATION DAY on January 06, 2021.  Next, GOP lawmakers seek a probe of Amazon’s Jedi contract.   Elsewhere, the GOP is adding an additional 10 Democrat-held congressional seats deemed to be vulnerable in 2022.  (Note- get rid of YOUR RINO problem, too, Republicans).  Moving on, UNC Chapel Hill has bestowed a professorship on the clown that created the 1619 ‘Project,’ (a bullshit propaganda project with which to wail and cry and to point fingers at the evil whiteys)[xx].  In other news, former Governor Charlie Crist, RINO-FL-turned Democrat Congressman, 13th congressional district, is making another run for the gubernatorial mansion.  Loser.  Finally, Eric Trump says there is NO way that fuddled old Joe Biden can hold a candle to his father’s energy on the job.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– We learned today that Newsmax settled a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada, that they apologized and agreed to stop questioning the 2020 Presidential Election’s veracity.  One America News, however, won’t back down for which, we congratulate them.  However, if Canada WON’T use Dominion Voting Systems nor Smartmatic Software in their own elections, what does that say about their trustworthiness and honesty?  Not very much.  Speaking of the untrustworthy, it now appears that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out as GOP Conference Chair by the end of the month.  This woman and the other corrupt Republicans that leapt onto the President Donald J. Trump impeachment vote as showing their virtue ALL must lose their seats.  Period.  She needs to join the Democrats of which she truly is one…finally, the Justice Department has been ordered to release the memo cited by then-U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr as to why there was no charge of obstruction launched against President Donald J. Trump when feeble old Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III concluded his ginned-up, bogus investigation into the 45th president.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The attorney for convicted murderer and former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has filed for a new trial now that we learn the jurors were going to convict him on ALL counts no matter what which is not justice but a kangaroo court.  The judge in the case pointed out that thanks to people like that dingbat from California, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, going there and rabble rousing the lynch mob outside the courthouse every day, that her actions put the entire outcome of the trial in jeopardy.  We expect to see Chauvin win a new trial, be acquitted, and get his old job back.  Boo-yeah!
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– stick around for the results on tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1656 with a pot of $345 million available to some lucky winner…here are the results: 04, 27, 32, 57, 63, and Mega 22.  Out of 136,836 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $947,704.
  79. 2022 Wednesday: Everyone Wang Chung tonight…

[i] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. We began promoting the music of Spirit and of Randy California beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  Please seek them out and consider adding their music to your collection.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Troggs on Monday, 06-January-2020 through Tuesday, 04-February-2020.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection as they are astounding.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[v] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.

[vi] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

[vii] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xviii] This schmo also warned the Chi-Coms it would be a mistake to attack Taiwan.  What is the U.S. going to do to stop it, Secretary Blinken?  Launch a nuclear barrage on the Chi-Coms?  I doubt it.  (Note- living in Israel allows me to view the world differently and I think there is no way the U.S.- without President Donald J. Trump in the White House– can do to stop such an attack.  I fear it would be over before it began- Mo).

[xix] Speaking of ‘climate,’ a NYU physicist says that ‘humans have NOT broken the climate.’

[xx] Nikole Hannah-Jones cannot handle any criticism of her bogus ‘history.’  Why is it we cannot continue the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?  Why do we have to continue finding ways of tearing the country apart?  Here is why: for some, it’s profitable.  Look at ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, look at ‘Reverend’ Jesse Jackson, look at that POS lawyer Benjamin Crump, these scalawags and scoundrels reap lots of wealth tearing the fabric of the nation asunder.  Going to be time to move to Russia or Chi-Com land…at least they defend their countries.

001. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JANUARY 01, 2022

63. 2021 Friday A: Once again, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate blocks the $2,000 relief checks for the American people. Here’s the thing that is angering the American people: the COVID-19 Relief Bill directs $174 billion to the American people and $762 billion to various other countries around the world. This is insane. What is even worse is that part of the $174 billion for the American people also includes $600 PLUS another $1,200 per illegal alien they did not get in the first stimulus.

Usher; U.S. Treasury Secretaries Samuel Dexter and Henry Morgenthau Jr.; U.S. Senators Robert “Bob” Menendez and Richard Shelby; Country Joe and the Fish featuring Country Joe McDonald, Mott the Hoople featuring Morgan Fisher, the Ohio Players featuring Marshall “Rock” Jones, and Savoy Brown featuring Chris Youlden:

  63. 2021 Friday A: Once again, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate blocks the $2,000 relief checks for the American people.   Here’s the thing that is angering the American people: the COVID-19 Relief Bill directs $174 billion to the American people and $762 billion to various other countries around the world.  This is insane.  What is even worse is that part of the $174 billion for the American people also includes $600 PLUS another $1,200 per illegal alien they did not get in the first stimulus.  The time is coming- so says Chef Vladimir Gdansk- that the Second Revolution coming will resemble more the French Revolution than the American Revolution.  People are angry that government NO LONGER REPRESENTS US!
  64. 2021 Friday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 83,579,767 confirmed cases, +585,547, 1,820,923, confirmed deaths, +10,563, and 47,162,055 confirmed recoveries, +268,693.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,212,820 confirmed cases, up 302,146 from yesterday’s reporting, 349,397 confirmed deaths, UP 4,520, and 9,136,262 confirmed recoveries, UP 379,112.
  65. 2021 Friday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,307,706 confirmed cases, 25,971 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,644 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,064 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia where they have a Ku Klux Klan-lover for a governor: currently, they have 354,766 confirmed cases, 5,081 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 426,769 confirmed cases, 3,338 confirmed deaths, and 378,038 confirmed recoveries.
  66. 2021 Friday D: The E.U. and the Chi-Coms continue working on their ‘deal’ to open markets in the communist nation to European investment.   Next, the Philippines block travel from the U.S. following detection of the new strain of the Chi-Vi in the United States.   Elsewhere, the entire African Continent (26 states as of today with most of the others soon to join)- with the exception of Eritrea- enters into the massive free trade zone it had previously set up making it the largest free trade zone since the creation of the World Trade Organization.  Meanwhile, both the U.S. State Department and the people of Hong Kong demand the release of the so-called “Hong Kong 12,” wrongly imprisoned by the thugs in Beijing.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Georgia voters come out for the final day of early voting in the two U.S. Senate run-off race- 3 million people have early voted so far.  Meanwhile the U.S. Senate overrides President Trump’s veto of the NDAA- the National Defense Authorization Act, patting themselves on the back as they do so.  The president vetoed the bill because it does nothing with the Section 230 the 45th president wanted overturned.  Chef Vladimir Gdansk writes in today’s post how the BIG TECH demon baby should be strangled in the crib now before it becomes so powerful that it is running the world (with the Chi-Coms being the main managing partner behind the scenes). 
  68. 2021 Friday F: Strange things occurring in Colorado what with the discovery of human remains in a pair of suitcases as are other human remains outside Prescott, Arizona.   Elsewhere, even though it’s against the mayor’s demands, the people of Philadelphia turn out to either participate in or to watch the big Philly Mummers parade.  Labeled a ‘protest,’ left-wing liberal government can do NOTHING to stop it.  FREEDOM OF SPEECH- PARDON JULIAN ASSANGE NOW!  Next, Portland, Oregon, police label a ‘protest’ a ‘riot’ when the mob goes berserk as darkness begins to fall.  (We believe the Chi-Coms are funding all of this mob mayhem).
  69. 2021 Friday G: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions #1621 with a $401 million jackpot: 08, 24, 53, 68, 69, and Mega 07.   Out of 186,678 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,000 apiece.  Congratulations!
  70. 2022 Saturday: We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover whatever the Chi-Coms, their allies Canada, Iran, Russia, North Korea, and other s-hole countries, as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good!

Friday, January 01, 2021, Today in History:  

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


Saturday, January 01, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing

[ii] We promoted the music of Country Joe and the Fish beginning on Tuesday, 16-July-2013 through Friday, 26-July-2013.  This was one of the greatest bands to explode out of San Francisco, California, during the Psychedelic 1960s.  Sadly, we failed to promote the music of Country Joe McDonald’s solo discography at the time.  We hope to rectify that at a later date.

[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, Mott, the British Lions, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iv] Little would the people of New York City know that this POS far-left, forever-stoned mayor would destroy their city and that come 2020 with the Chi-Com-manufactured pandemic out of control people would flee the dying city.  GET this scumbag out of office!

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On September 24, 1990, Badfinger released a live album, “Day after Day Live,” an album that had long circulated as a bootleg but which was cleaned up by Joey Molland and released as an official release so the band would earn some much-needed royalties.  Recorded at the height of the group’s career, the band features the most popular lineup of the group doing what they do best- performing some of the greatest music ever recorded in the history of rock-and-roll.  The band features Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals) and the tunes contained on this disc are all worth having.  Please, seek it out, give it a good listen, and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following the bust-up of Apple Records and Badfinger being thrown to the winds, their record company compiled 17 key tracks from the post Apple albums on “The Best of Badfinger Volume 2” (January 21, 1990).  You get a key selection of illuminating tracks that demonstrate the potential this star-crossed band possessed so it makes one wonder as to what might have happened had they NOT signed with Apple and found another company willing to market their potential instead of milking them for everything they had like a damp sponge.  We hope you will seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your listening day.  We think you will be glad you took the time to give it a thorough listening.  Enjoy.

LL. 1954 Tuesday A: The attempt to reach Dien Bien Phu by French Union forces fighting from the south in Operation Condor had stalled. A contingency plan- Operation Albatross had already been discussed, a breakout of the 2,000-3,000 fittest men from Dien Bien Phu and Isabelle, but sadly for the garrison, it was slated to May 15 when additional air support and artillery could provide some semblance of aid as to help those breaking out heading to the south. Problem was the troops were unclear as to whether they could sustain the fight until then.

Gavin Newsom?  Colleagues up in Washington state report 15,462 confirmed cases what with confirmed deaths at 841 and- like California- NO recovery confirmation numbers.  Gov. Jay Inslee, what are YOU hiding (asks Chef Vladimir?)
