  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.

  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971 and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on October 22, 2021.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.

  63. 2018 Tuesday: The president of Poland- Andrzej Duda- signs a controversial law that outlaws anyone from saying that the country and its people were complicit in the crimes committed on its soil by the Nazis during the Holocaust.  Many try to infer that the Poles aided the Nazis in helping exterminate the Jews.   Meanwhile, the U.S. calls for a ceasefire as Syrian government airstrikes on rebel positions have killed dozens.  Elsewhere, as the Winter Olympic Games approach in South Korea, Vice President Mike Pence says additional sanctions could be coming for North Korea.

Gov. Justin Fairfax- has his own problems.  In more #MeToo allegations, a woman who worked for the lieutenant governor accuses him of rape, of forced sodomy and the like.  What is going on in this once reputable state?  What is up with all these Democrats?  The state’s AG- Mark Herring- says, ‘yup, I wore blackface at a party back in 1980 while in college.’  Folks, the Democrats always accuse their political enemies of being RACISTS yet here are three bigwig Democrats and two of them are racists and one a sexual offender.  You can’t make this stuff up, folks, you simply cannot.
  65. 2020 Thursday: Following a speech by President Trump at the National Prayer Breakfast, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi goes to the microphone banks and gives one of her most incoherent, rambling, ambling speeches yet, attacking the president, condemning the president, and trying to justify tearing up the president’s speech at Tuesday night’s SOTU address.  How this senile crone clings to power is beyond millions of Americans; we expect her to pay the price on Election Day 2020 becoming the first House speaker to lose the position not once but twice, along with her congressional seat.  Later, President Trump thanked his supporters in both House and Senate, as well as his cabinet members, and other assembled VIPS.  The speech was absolutely wonderful and concluded with the president’s determination to help as many Republicans win or keep their seats in November.  Godspeed, Mr. President, Godspeed.  Meanwhile, in China, more and more images come out via social media showing the outbreak of the corona virus to be far worse than what the communist authorities claim.  We think a biological warfare experiment went awry and now the world is going to pay the price for their bumbling.  Thank you, President Xi, thank you.
  66. 2021 Saturday:  One America News reports that thousands of Americans are receiving tax forms for unemployment insurance for which they did not file.  Next, the TSA announces that passengers who refuse to wear facemasks could face fines of up to $1,500 per citation.  Meanwhile, a recent Rasmussen poll says that most Americans do not believe the ‘news media’ is aggressive with Joe Biden as it was with President Donald J.

Trump returns to social media with a post on Gab.
  67. 2021 Saturday A: In New York’s 22nd U.S. House District, the one in which, Republican Claudia Tenney finally won her old seat back, Democrat Anthony Brindisi, the beaten Democrat, is now crying about the Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software.  IF you agree to taking another LOOK into the 2020 Presidential Election and how it was stolen from one candidate and given to another, perhaps we will take another look at this House race.  Otherwise, STFU.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden has stripped President Donald J. Trump of his security clearance.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s bringing back the ‘President’s weekly radio address.’  Let’s look for an earpiece folks so we can know that someone is putting words in his ear.   Finally, the U.S. Supreme Court partially lifts California’s ban on church gatherings.
  68. 2021 Saturday B: Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY, says that to accept the GOP counter COVID-19 bill is to commit ‘unconditional surrender.’  Elsewhere, the people are Myanmar are out in the streets protesting the coup against their government even with the Internet shut down.  The interesting thing about this is the Biden administration is upset about the coup in Burma but could care less that he won the 2020 Presidential Election via a…coup.  The Democrats, the RINOs, the Chi-Coms, and Canada- among others- conspired to topple President Trump and to then shove the senile usurper into his place.  What the flaming f**k? 
  69. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 105,461,681 confirmed cases, +238,473, 2,300,891, confirmed deaths, +7,628, and 58,645,012 confirmed recoveries, +144,616.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,054,709 confirmed cases, up 78,221 from yesterday’s reporting, 463,090 confirmed deaths, UP 1,837, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  NOTE- in the White House 17 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 134,662 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  Maybe you will be a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State?
  70. 2021 Saturday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,395,385 confirmed cases, 43,647 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,286 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,334 confirmed cases, 4,526 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Georgia.  Currently, they have 932,912 confirmed cases, 14,858 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 680,856 confirmed cases, 5,020 confirmed deaths, and 590,822 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: the United Kingdom.  The UK has 3.929,835 confirmed cases, 112,092 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed deaths.  What a load of crap, share the TRUTH! 
  71. 2021 Saturday E: The Biden administration ends another Trump era agreement, this one in which, asylum-seeking illegal aliens were able to be returned back to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.  Oh, thank you, Joe, for swarming our country with millions more illegal aliens to whom you are going to grant citizenship.  Can the country survive?  Elsewhere, Michigan is the first state revamping the state’s GOP leadership and folks, they are recruiting strong Trump supporters which is good.   Meanwhile, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wins his third NFL MVP Award making him only the sixth person in NFL history to win three or more such honors.  Congratulations, Aaron.   Finally, the now discredited Lincoln Project continues imploding as yet another phony- in this case, Jennifer Horn- threw in the towel following disclosures about gay sex addict John Weaver.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Just when you think Sandy Denny’s ‘well’ is dried up, the record label and the family dives into the deep end and comes to the surface with still more.  “The Notes and the Words: A Collection of Demos and Rarities” came out on May 21, 2012, a four-disc set featuring a vast collection of this legendary vocalist’s repertoire.  There are lost nuggets, newly discovered gems, relics long lost and thought destroyed and holy, moly, there they are.  If you think you have every shred of music by this famed vocalist, think again.  Just like other bands from the psychedelic era in the U.S.- Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, the always dependable Grateful Dead, and some of the others- boom, bam, there’s always something else deep within the vaults and that is what you have here.   Currently, Amazon.com is selling it for around $388.15 but what the heck- now that you can track the price, put it on your tracker and follow it until you can get it at the price that works best for you- you will be extremely glad you did.

Retribution soon to come.

Bush.  This occurred after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered a stop to the ongoing Florida recount thus giving both the state and the presidency to the Texas governor.  Speaking of Texas, the so-called ‘Texas Seven’- a band of seven incarcerated thugs breaks out of the John Connally Unit near Kenedy, Texas, and go on a rape, robbery, and murder spree.  They were on the lam until concerned civilians noticed them posing as ‘Christian missionaries’ and fingered them to the cops.  Eventually,  four of them were executed in Texas’ death house.

  54. 2005 Tuesday: A European Union investigation into CIA activities on European soil- and elsewhere in the world- leads to allegations of the Central Intelligence Agency’s kidnapping and abductions of European citizens.  They contend the U.S. spy agency spirits the hapless individuals to secret black site prisons.  That damned President George W. Bush!   Officials in the EU say that these scurrilous rendition policies may harm cooperation between European intel agencies and U.S. intel agencies.  
  55. 2006 Wednesday: Two al-Qaida attacks in Kirkuk and Baghdad, Iraq, kill at least 23 Iraqis and wounds approximately another 52 people.  
  56. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. Senate passes a bill that would increase automobile fuel standards for the first time in three decades.   Elsewhere, a USMC soldier is found guilty of killing an Iraqi soldier while the two were standing guard in Fallujah.  We are sure he must have a good reason for killing the man.

  60. 2011 Tuesday: In an affront to the Obama Administration, Iran refuses to return the RQ-170 Sentinel drone after it crash-landed in their country and report that they are in the process of extracting data from the craft.   Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder vows to go after states that have restrictive voting laws.  By this he means states that have VOTER ID LAWS.  Democrats HATE Voter ID Laws.
  61. 2012 Thursday: European Union finance ministers vote to give European Central Bank new powers to supervise Euro Zone’s banks.   Meanwhile, after the GOP announces to plans to challenge her nomination for U.S. secretary of state, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice withdraws her nomination.

  65. 2016 Tuesday: Much to the horror of American liberals, President-elect Donald J. Trump chooses Texas Governor Rick Perry to become his secretary of Energy.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Energy is bucking the Trump transition team by refusing to provide the names of its members who worked on the Obama climate change strategy.  Yet in 2020, with ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden appearing to be ‘incoming,’ the Dems are calling for UNITY.  Hypocrites.  Next, President-elect Donald J. Trump chooses Montana Congressman Ryan Zinke to become his secretary of the Interior.
  66. 2017 Wednesday: In Yemen, a Saudi-led airstrike on a Houthi rebel camp in the nation’s capital of Sana’a kills at least 30 Iranian-backed terrorists and wounds loads of others.  Light ‘em up!  Meanwhile, Palestinian militants fire a barrage of rockets into Israel.  The minister of defense said the Iron Dome took out two of the missiles while one went down in an open field.  Retribution soon to come.
  67. 2018 Thursday: The U.S. Senate voted 56-41 to end participation in the Saudi war in neighboring Yemen where Iranian-backed Houthi rebels are trying to overthrow the Arab nation.   Then, the Senate passed a unanimous resolution that Saudi Crown Prince Mohamed Bin Salman was 100-percent responsible for the murder of Saudi American journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
  68. 2019 Friday: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, announces the committee will return on Tuesday for a final impeachment vote which will then leave the whole charade up to Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-KY, in the Senate to proceed with an impeachment trial.  Some Democrat loudmouths demand that Sen. McConnell recuse himself because of his stated coordination with the White House.  What is it about the Dems that they are ALWAYS trying to stack the deck in their favor?  
  69. 2020 Sunday: In a strange twist of fate (yeah, right), reports continue surfacing that show ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s son Hunter did not report $400 thousand in cash given to him by none other than Burisma, the natural gas energy company in the Ukraine.  Speaking of Burisma, corruption, and Democrats, we now learn that POS Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff of California ALSO has problems with corruption scandals seeing as how he is linked to several corrupt Ukrainian and other foreign companies and oligarchs such as Igor Pasternak who donated vast sums of cash to the derelict congressman’s campaign fund.  Other companies to whom Congressman Schiff is tied are Black Rock and Franklin-Templeton.  Add this to Congressman Eric Swalwell, another California Democrat, and his ties to Beijing via schlepping Ministry of State Service female intelligence agent and you can easily see that whatever Democrats accuse others of doing is what they themselves are guilty of doing.   Speaking of corrupt Democrats, former staffer to New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, aka Andrew the Murderer, Lindsey Boylan claims the governor sexually harassed her off and on during the time in which, she worked for the dimwitted governor from March 2015 to October 2018.
  70. 2020 Sunday A: The NYPD launches an investigation into what is occurring in Brooklyn- two EMS units have been held up at gunpoint with medical supplies and equipment being stolen from them within one week of another.  Speaking of crime and medicine, the FBI warns the American people to be aware of scams surrounding distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines.   Elsewhere, health officials say a ‘twindemic’ is unlikely in that cases of the flu are down this year, so a twin pandemic of flu and the Chi-Vi are highly unlikely.
  71. 2020 Sunday B: U.S. Congressman William “Bill” Pascrell, D-NJ 9th District, urges his master, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi NOT to seat 126 Republican congressmen all because they are defending President Trump in his fight against the rampant corruption that occurred in several battleground states around the country.  He feels they are unfit for service.  What will the senile speaker do?  Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, and Senator Tim Scott celebrate the life and times of the first black American to serve in Congress after the U.S. Civil War- Congressman Joseph Rainey, of South Carolina’s 1st House District.  When Senator Scott was Congressman Scott, he represented the same district.
  72. 2020 Sunday C: Moms for America is going to throw a Keep Christmas Rally and Celebration to push back on ever sectarian government’s drive to blot out Christianity.  We must drive every anti-Christian and anti-Semite out of office.   Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., at the Bus Tour for Trump Rally, My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell, blasts fascist governors around the country for using the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as an excuse for imposing harsh restrictions and draconian lockdowns on their citizens.  In addition to this, he also blasts election fraud and questions WHY the Fake News Media did NOT release the Hunter Biden laptop story prior to Election Day.  Elsewhere, in the state of Missouri, a man who once was a gangbanger- Darrion Cockrell- becomes the state’s 2021 Teach of the Year.  Congratulations!  (Mr. Cockrell is a physical-education teacher at Crestwood Elementary School).
  73. 2020 Sunday D: On the foreign front, Russia fires off four ballistic missiles in tests.  Meanwhile, the United Kingdom and the European Union are still working to make Brexit a reality even as the UK sends several patrol boats to protect English fishing waters from encroachment by EU fishing boats.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy ends search for U.S. Navy sailor who purportedly went over the side of the USS Theodore Roosevelt into the waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean.  The sailor- 20-year-old Aviation Ordinanceman Airman Apprentice Ethan Goolsby hails from San Antonio, Texas.

  76. 2020 Sunday G: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -disease the Chi-Coms manufactured in their Wuhan biowarfare lab and their allies, the Democratic Party- used to throw the election to “Pro-China Joe” Biden, aka “Chi-Com Joe”:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 72,084,868 confirmed cases, +619,208, 1,610,265, confirmed deaths, +9,027, and 47,064,409 confirmed recoveries, +1,521,606.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 16,322,151 confirmed cases, up 164,818 from yesterday’s reporting, 302,058 confirmed deaths, UP 1,480, and 7,443,901 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,374.
  77. 2020 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,558,275 confirmed cases, 20,976 confirmed deaths (number readjusted DOWN from last week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,315 confirmed cases, 269 confirmed deaths, and no longer any mention of confirmed recoveries at this point.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 207,399 confirmed cases, 3,043 confirmed deaths (down from a week ago), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Maine- currently, they have 15,923 confirmed cases, 257 confirmed deaths, and 10,941 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 355,786 confirmed cases, 2,983 confirmed deaths, and 335,243 confirmed recoveries.  Regarding the Beijing Bug, leaders in the U.S. House and Senate continue trying to agree on a Chi-Vi relief bill but cannot hammer one out.  Week after week, these losers go through the motions trying to provide relief to the American people but never f**king do.  VOTE ALL OF THEM OUT OF OFFICE WHEN THEY COME UP FOR RE-ELECTION BEGINNING WITH DENTURE-WEARING NANCY ‘MUMBLES’ PELOSI!
  78. 2020 Sunday I:  Here is where we were one year ago today: even though it’s Sunday, we understand that the Chi-Coms via their allies in Iran, Russia, and Canada- along with their bozos in the Democratic Party- are up to no-good which is why we encourage everyone to stick around and uncover what these dog-eating Chi-Coms and their partners in crime are up to today.   One thing we learned today is that Columbia University accepted $1,000,000 from the Confucius Institute in Beijing.  While they claim it’s on the up-and-up, everyone knows they are taking Chi-Com money in exchange for access to research secrets.  MF-ers!   
  79. 2021 Monday:  Stick around…
