210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.

  52. 2014 Tuesday: In Sierra Leone during the Ebola virus crisis, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan succumbs to the disease himself, the principal physician battling against it.  Meanwhile, in Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, the authorities claim that 100 of their citizens were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  IF Palestinians were killed, it’s because they were acting the fool- like usual.  In the wake of this, France announces it will send 8-million euros in aid to the Gaza.  Good for them, virtue-signaling is always good.
  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.
  54. 2016 Friday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party.  Needless to say, her fellow Democrats fall into a celebratory swoon and sex workers around the city see the numbers of their patrons spike.  Virginia Senator Tim Kaine becomes her running mate.  What a pair of losers.
  55. 2017 Saturday: U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint live-fire exercises in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile; experts said the North Korean launch showed that a substantial portion of the United States was now within the range of Kim Jong Un’s arsenal of missiles. 
  56. 2018 Sunday: Students in Dhaka, Bangladesh, launch protests around the nation demanding safer roadways.  In a country as poor as this one, they are incapable of doing the necessary infrastructure work to make their nation safe.
  57. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number.  Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  58. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $3.114.  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- Philippines: $4.590 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,579,970,824,046 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

  55. 2011 Wednesday: Oprah Winfrey airs her final show, ending her 25-year-run of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”  Elsewhere, South African President Jacob Zuma announces that as a representative of the African Union, he will visit Moammar Gaddafi- if he is not among the rubble of his home- to broker a ceasefire in the ongoing civil war there.  (Note- it won’t matter- Gaddafi is Public Enemy #1 for the Obama administration for some reason beknown only to the 44th president).
  56. 2012 Friday: The first commercial spacecraft, Space X Dragon, docks with the International Space Station when it completes docking at 12:02 pm EDT.  Meanwhile, French President Francois Hollande arrives in Afghanistan on a surprise visit to meet with French troops battling the jihadists in that horrible country.  Elsewhere, Scottish independence becomes the topic of the day when First Minister for Scotland Alex Salmond launches the “YES” campaign to encourage his fellow Scots that the time has come to sever ties with the Brits.
  57. 2013 Saturday: Japanese citizen Yuichiro Miura sets a Guinness Book of Records standard by becoming the oldest person to scale Mt. Everest by doing so at the age of 80.  Meanwhile, al-Qaida in the Maghreb big dog Mokhtar Belmokhtar goes to the microphones and celebrates the fact that his evil group conducted two suicide bombings in Niger on May 23 that claimed the lives of at least 30 people and wounded God knows how many more.  What a bunch of scum.
  58. 2014 Sunday: Pope Francis invites Israeli President Shimon Peres and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to pray with him for peace; both leaders accept the invitation.  Elsewhere, in a raid north of Sana’a, Yemen, Yemeni troops carry out a successful raid on an al-Qaida hideout.  In the ensuing battle, five jihadists are slain and another four taken into custody.
  59. 2015 Monday: According to Brainy History, Ehud Olmert, former prime minister of Israel, is sentenced to eight months in prison after new evidence emerges proving corruption charges for which he had been acquitted three years ago.  Israeli politics seem to be pretty tough over there what with trying to send its leaders to jail.  WTF?
  60. 2016 Wednesday: Southern Europe is in the throes of crisis as the tidal wave of ‘migrants’ continues trying to make it to Italy and other points in the Mediterranean Sea.  Off the coast of Libya, an overloaded boat full of ‘refugees’ capsizes leading to at least five drownings.  The Italian navy scoops out another 562 swimmers and takes them to shore.  (Note- it’s becoming time to start sowing mines off the coast of Libya).
  61. 2017 Thursday: Surrounded by stone-faced allies, President Donald Trump rebuked fellow NATO members for being the tightwads they have been for decades.  He criticized them for failing to meet the military alliance’s financial benchmarks.   Elsewhere, voters in Montana go to the polls today in the special election to replace Congressman Ryan Zinke who has gone to work in the Trump administration.  The choice is between Republican Greg Gianforte and Democrat Rob Quist.
  62. 2018 Friday: Sexual deviate Harvey Weinstein underwent charging in New York for rape and another sex felony in the first prosecution to result from the wave of allegations against him; the once-powerful movie mogul turned himself in to face the charges and was released on $1 million bail after a court appearance.  Elsewhere, following yesterday’s cancelation of the upcoming summit between the U.S. and North Korea in Singapore, President Donald J. Trump reverses himself and says that some headway is being made and that the summit still could happen as long as Kim Jong Un tones down his rhetoric.
  63. 2019 Saturday: A powerful twister roars through the town of El Reno, Oklahoma, killing at least two and injuring numerous others.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump goes around Congress to make sure a multi-billion-dollar sale of arms to Saudi Arabia occurs.  Democrats are angry at this because they want to deny the Saudis the weapons with which to defend themselves from the Iranians because they are still pissed off over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.
  64. 2020 Memorial Day Monday: Failed New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, releases a 51-page edict outlining how the state will reopen in the event COVID-19- communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ which is sad.  The (former) Empire State will never be the same what with a constant stream of middle-and-upper-middle class citizens leaving for elsewhere.  Here are the statistics for the Wuhan Virus for today, first the globe: 5,490,954 confirmed cases, 345,962 confirmed deaths, but 2,228,952 confirmed recoveries which is amazing and a good sign.
  65. 2020 Memorial Day Monday A: Here are the statistics for the United States: 1,696,874 confirmed cases, 99,459 confirmed deaths, but 352,612 confirmed recoveries which would resemble the percentage of the globe IF the various Blue State governors would be honest and present the numbers of recoveries, but they won’t.  They seek to keep things locked down which in our view is criminal: it demonstrates the COLLUSION between the Democratic Party and their communist Chinese taskmasters in Beijing and here in our country.  We must thwart them. 
  66. 2020 Memorial Day Monday B: In the three states in which the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 94,558 confirmed cases, 3,785 confirmed deaths, BUT NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which demonstrates the scumbag Gov. Gavin Newsom KNOWS that if he shared them, NO one would obey his stay-at-home orders.  In Hawaii, here are the figures: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 591 confirmed recoveries for which, we must thank Gov. David Ige for his honesty.  Finally, in Washington state where whacked-out Governor Jay Inslee holds power (people, vote this baboon out!), here are the stats: 20,065 confirmed cases, 1,070 confirmed deaths, and sadly, like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  You know, Washington was once a wonderful state but now- in the grip of Democrats- languishes in the throes of Democratic-Socialism!  Free California!  Free Washington!  Free Tibet!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free and independent Taiwan (until they liberate the mainland)!  Free from Democratic-Socialism and Communism!
  67. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet As A Whole: 168,514,195 confirmed cases, +3,377, 3,499,505  confirmed deaths, +267 and 150,112,274 confirmed recoveries, +80,205.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,947,189 confirmed cases, UP 32,100 from yesterday’s reporting, 605,208 confirmed deaths, UP 904,[ix] and 27,606,442 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,997.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[x]   
  68. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, There Have Been 288,596 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 171,013 deaths  
  69. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,780,101 confirmed cases, 62,984 confirmed deaths, and 2,021,886 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,313,815 confirmed cases, 36,581 confirmed deaths, and 1,929,132 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,924 confirmed cases, 496 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 432,993 confirmed cases, 5,780 confirmed deaths, and 211,014 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Jersey: they have 1,014,579 confirmed cases, 26,125 confirmed deaths, and 873,637 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  70. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,389 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,523 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Uzbekistan, a former part of the old Soviet Union: 98,849 cases of the virus, 94,385 confirmed deaths and 96,666 confirmed recoveries.[xii]     
  71. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,312.46, DOWN 81.52 points (-0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,657.17, DOWN 4.00 points (-0.029%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.13, DOWN 8.92 points (-0.21%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.99 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.12%).  The price of GOLD is $1,899.90 per troy oz., +1.90 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $28.12 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,196.20 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, 0.00 (+0.09%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,770.60 per troy oz, +42.37 (+1.55%).[xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $27,250.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-1.80%).[xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.41 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Belarusian Ruble, one greenback equals 2.51 and in Belize Dollars, a buck equals 2.00 and in Bermudian Dollar, one dollar equals 1.00 of theirs.[xvi]   In other business news, Washington, D.C., has launched an antitrust lawsuit against Amazon over their purported mistreatment of vendors.  Wow.   Meanwhile, rents have gone up by 1.9-percent, the highest rate in 10 years, while rents for single-family homes have gone up 4.3-percent from last year.  (Note- we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe the Chi-Coms will be buying up commercial and residential real estate using straw buyers so they can become the de facto landlords of the average American.  This is not right, and immediate action must be taken to drive these bat-eating scumbags out of everyday American life).  
  72. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.165 per gallon, $2.869 in Florida, $3.909 in Hawaii, and $3.562 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Virgin Islands: $3.239.  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- Liberia: $2.911 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,328,605,823,085 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.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– One year after the death of George Floyd, the American people reflect on his ‘life and times.’  Here is what the majority of the chef-bloggers at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe: George Floyd was a thug[xx] and had he not continued scuffling with the police but had complied with their commands, he would be alive today.  Maybe he would be doing time in the county jail, but he would be alive today.  When stopped by the cops and you are as high as hell and tried to pass a counterfeit $20 bill, do what the hell the cops instruct you to do, and you will most likely survive the interaction.  Period.   We are sorry that Mr. Floyd behaved like a dimwit but man, oh man, did his family (and the Democratic Party) profit from his demise.  Tragic.  Meanwhile, drooling Joe Biden hosted Mr. Floyd’s family at the White House demanding that lawmakers pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act 2021- H.R. 1280- NOW.  Such is Democrats pandering to identity politics.
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day #64 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be doing something about the southern border calamity and yet, she has yet to visit, and nothing is being done.  The floodgates are open, the vermin are swarming out of Third World sewers and overwhelming the United States.  (Note- we always suggest watching the ORIGINAL- and not the PC sanitized- version of “Red Dawn,” (1984).  About midway through the movie, you will see how the United States fell under assault by the Russians and Cubans- advance waves of millions of illegal aliens flooded into the country followed by troops from the two communist countries.  It is eye-opening.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– President Donald J. Trump congratulated himself on the roll out of the Chi-Vi vaccine.  Meanwhile, the Moderna Bat Flu vaccine has been approved for use by teenagers and could become available to teenaged Americans by early next month.   Elsewhere, after photos appeared showing Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer enjoying the good life at the Landshark Bar and Grill in East Lansing, Michigan came to light- the horrible chief executive of a once-lovely state is facing growing blowback.  People in her state are chafing under a soul-crushing lockdown while the rectangular-headed bozo governor can go out and have a celebration in public much like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in California did a few months back at the famed French Laundry.  Remove this authoritarian skank from office NOW.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump slammed the pink panties-wearing Joe Scarborough of ‘Morning Joe’ infamy today for being a political hack.  Next, Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office George P. Bush talks to President Trump about political options for the Lone Star State- he is thinking of running against current Attorney General Ken Paxton.  Speaking of Texas, the state’s legislature has passed the “Star-Spangled Banner” Bill; it awaits the signature of Republican Governor Greg Abbott.  Elsewhere, Congressman Brad Wenstrup, R-OH 2nd congressional district, told Newsmax that Joe Biden’s reluctance to confront the Chi-Coms is ‘unfair to all mankind.’  (Note- we have said this before- the Chi-Coms are the National Socialists of the 21st century as they have (1) territorial ambitions (2) are more fascists now than communists and (3) have concentration and slave labor/death camps for ethnic and religious minorities as well as other undesirables (in their eyes).   They are an ‘Asian version’ of the Nazis.  How soon before they add swastikas to their flags?).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News II– The FBI is investigating a suspicious package that some liberal lunatic sent to Senator Rand Paul, R-KY.  Next, the Senate GOP appears ready to employ the filibuster against the bogus January 06, 2021 ‘Commission’ in which, the Democrats will try- once again- to impeach President Donald J. Trump and to sully other Republicans if they can over the FALSE FLAG OPERATION that occurred on that fateful day.   We believe the American people are becoming much more aware that what we saw on January 06, 2021, was a well-orchestrated theatrical production designed to do exactly what it accomplished: force the reluctant Republicans into not questioning all the fraudulent and corrupt activities on and around Election Day and 2020 and to certify the election.[xxi]
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News III– Zack Smith, legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, said today that ‘D.C. statehood requires a constitutional amendment to become reality.’  We concur- the District of Columbia was NEVER meant to be a state and anyone who claims otherwise must go back and retake civics as well as to open their eyes.  If the denizens of the nation’s capital want ‘full rights,’ the land on which everything sits- other than actual government buildings- should be returned to the states that offered up portions of their territories in the first place.  Problem solved.   Meanwhile, the Senate GOP is offering up a compromise on Joe Biden’s ‘infrastructure package’ of nearly $1 trillion but only for actual infrastructure.   Elsewhere, ex-White House counsel under President Donald J. Trump Don McGahn is expected to testify on the Robert S. Mueller III ‘investigation into Trump-Russia collusion,’ one of the all-time great political witch hunts of all time.  Finally, America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani says of the rampant anti-Semitism taking place across the country: “Very dangerous thing we are watching.”
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1662 with a $20 million pot on the line: 14, 21, 31, 34, 54, and Mega 11.   
  80. 2022 Wednesday: Everyone knows the drill.  Stick around to discover the truth and note- we know the world is up to its usual tricks…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys continued struggling along what with Brian Wilson- principal songwriter, falsetto vocalist, and guiding light now being in a mental state of malaise.  Thus, the other Beach Boys had to step up and tackle a larger portion of the songwriting.  Still, Brian Wilson’s name shows up on many of the tracks as well as his vocals, but the album suffered poor sales.  This is not to say that the album is not a joy because it is, albeit an extremely short one.  Some say it’s the band’s first ‘TM’ or their ‘transcendental meditation album’ as it has a spiritual, upbeat flow.  The lineup on “Friends” (June 24, 1968) features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  There are some wonderful songs on this album to be sure: the title track, “Wake the World,” “Be Here in the Morning,” “When a Man Needs a Woman,” “Passing By,” and “Busy Doing Nothing.”  We hope you will seek this one out as it is a delightful record, one we wholeheartedly love, enjoy, and recommend.  Back in the 1970s, one could find it packaged with “Smiley Smile” in a two-for-one.  Now, you can get an expanded edition so check it out.

[i] We hope to present the music of the Nice as well as Emerson, Lake & Palmer at some point within the next five years.  Please remain posted for the day that we do.

[ii] We promoted the music of Blossom Toes beginning on Monday, 01-June-2015 through Sunday, 07-June-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog, so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of the Outlaws when we begin promoting the music of country artists.  Please remain alert for the day we do as you will enjoy them.

[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.  Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too.  Perhaps one day we will.

[vi] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of the legendary British band, the Pretty Things, but when we do, you will love them so remain vigilant for the day we do.

[vii] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

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

[ix] 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)

[xx] In Minneapolis at George Floyd Square today, gunshots began ringing out sending reporters scrambling.  What more proof does one require that these scumbags be thugs?

[xxi] The more I pay attention to the events of January 06, 2021, the more I smell a rat.  One does not have to love Donald Trump to know my party screwed him.  I don’t like the road down which we are traveling.  I didn’t ask for socialism, nor did I ask for communism.  – Chef Roland.

115. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 25, 2022

26. 1943 Sunday: Fighting in the Warsaw Ghetto continues as the Jews are determined to trade their lives for more of the German and Lithuanian police troops trying to round them up and deport them to concentration camps sprinkled across Poland. The fighting is fierce with both sides giving no quarter. Jews captured by the Nazis are shot where they stand while Jews use Molotov cocktails and homemade bombs to kill German troops and set ablaze their vehicles.

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

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

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

  67. 2017 Wednesday: FOX News announces its letting go of long-time news host, Bill O’Reilly, following purported allegations of sexual improprieties.  We learned somewhat later that the accusations were ginned up so the network could boot him in favor of Tucker Carlson.   Elsewhere, Caracas, Venezuela, sees the ‘Mother of All Marches” as hundreds of thousands of people turn out to protest the dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro.  In subsequent events, several people are killed or injured on both sides of the political divide.

  69. 2019 Friday: Famed German composer and conductor Martin Böttcher, dies at age 91.  Meanwhile, the U.S. National Institutes of Health announces a $350 million grant for researchers to find ways to cut the number of opioid deaths in the four hardest hit states.  Elsewhere, media reports that former Vice President (and Senator) Joe Biden has decided that next week, he will officially announce he is in the race for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  Finally, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces a bill that would raise the minimum age for tobacco products from 18 to 21.

  71. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 141,684,613 confirmed cases, +690,758, 3,024,290  confirmed deaths, +9,715, and 81,018,628 confirmed recoveries, +562,181.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,878,296 confirmed cases, UP 10,922 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,701 confirmed deaths, UP 546, and 119,038,619 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix] 
  72. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,905 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  73. 2021 Monday 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: 3,718,223 confirmed cases, 60,994 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,173,138 confirmed cases, 34,471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,715 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,382 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Mississippi, the home of the New South: they have 309,186 confirmed cases, 7,153 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[x]   Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says he expects to see the Johnson & Johnson vaccine back in action later this week.  In other Chi-Vi news, today, we learned that more than half of our fellow Americans have received at least ONE of their Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.

  75. 2021 Monday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,077.63, DOWN 123.04 points (-0.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,914.76, DOWN 137.58 points (-0.98%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,163.06, DOWN 22.21 points (-0.53%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.59 per barrel, +0.17 (+0.27%).  The price of GOLD is $1,770.80 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.86 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,211.70 per troy oz, +5.20 (+0.43%) while the price of COPPER is $4.24 per pound, -0.00 (-0.01%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,797.85 per troy oz, +20.35 (+0.73%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.40%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Hong Kong dollar, one greenback equals 7.77 and in Hungarian Forint, a buck equals 299.57.[xv]

  77. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Governor Ron DeSantis,[xviii] R-FL, signs the most pro-law enforcement bill on the books and also has consequences for violent rioters.  God bless you, sir!  Next, a poll in New York state says that ’54-percent of the voters view Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Go, aka the Gropin’ Gov, with disdain.  Another poll tried to say the voters would vote for this POS again, but no one believes that.  Speaking of the Empire State, a judge rules that the case, N.Y. v. Amazon will remain at the state level and not move up the chain to the federal level.   In other interesting “Killer” Cuomo news, N.Y. Attorney General Leticia James may be ‘reviewing’ the erstwhile governor’s autobiographical ‘novel’ of the wonderful job he did during the Chinese Virus pandemic, the one in which, he consigned tens of thousands of New York’s elderly and ill to their deaths.
  78. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– The Texas House of Representatives okays a bill dropping permits to open-carry firearms in the state.  Speaking of the Lone Star State, the former Austin Police Department detective sought in the shooting deaths of three people yesterday has been scooped up in police custody.   Next, President Donald J. Trump advises decrepit Joe Biden NOT to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan on the symbolic date of September 11, 2021, the 20-year-anniversary of the Islamist attack on New York City, on the Pentagon, and on a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Will old drooling Joe Biden listen to the sage advice?  Most likely not. 
  79. 2021 Monday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Elsewhere, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is putting forth a bill demanding the expulsion of lunatic Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, over her visit to Minnesota over the weekend to encourage VIOLENCE no matter the outcome of the murder trial of Officer Derek Chauvin.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is standing by her fellow octogenarian by saying, “She did nothing wrong.”  Both of these imbeciles must be voted out of office or impeached and removed.   In the case of “Prune Face” Waters, she should be doing time prison.  (Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Maxine Waters singlehandedly may have caused a mistrial due to her careless words.’[xix]   In other news, as the deathwatch of Putin critic Alexei Navalny begins, Joe Biden begins uttering some incoherent words in defense of the imprisoned freedom fighter.
  80. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Steve Stivers, R-OH 15th congressional district is resigning his seat to head his state’s Chamber of Commerce.   Next, a Jewish coalition may expel the Zionists of America for them being critical of radical anti-Semite scum such as Congresswomen Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, by calling them out for their anti-Israel bigotry.  What did ZOA say wrong?   Next, Republican leaders are demanding a meeting with ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris so they can discuss the BORDER CRISIS, the one a word-slurring Joe Biden long claimed it wasn’t but now says it is and do something about it.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris has crisscrossed the country but has gone NOWHERE near the border since coming into office.  Speaking of the BORDER CRISIS, Joe Biden issued new rules to Customs and Border Patrol telling them ‘NO LONGER can they use the words ‘illegal alien’ and ‘assimilation’ when discussing the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS POURING ACROSS THE SOUTHERN BORDER.’  WTF?   Speaking of ILLEGALS, Joe Biden’s handlers pledge that fuddled old Joe is going to raise the numbers of REFUGEES accepted into the country but that his original goal of hundreds of thousands may not occur.   (Interesting note- late this afternoon, the White House began walking back Joe Biden’s mumbled statements about the ‘crisis’ on the southern border.  Maybe they’ll CANCEL JOE?).
  81. 2021 Monday J: INTERESTING HYPOCRISY OF THE DAY–  Facebook is now censoring criticism of Black Lives Matter skank Patrice Cullors who has purchased several million dollars’ worth of real estate using money donated to BLM by dimwits such as FB cofounder Dustin Moskovitz who gave $5 million to the Marxist organization.  We cannot have people calling out LIBERAL HYPOCRISY now can we and so the great social media platform won’t let anyone call them out on it.
  82. 2021 Monday K: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT– After the defense wrapped up its closing arguments in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, the jury now has the case and cities from Minneapolis to Chicago to Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California, to Portland, Oregon, are all preparing for out-of-control riots should he be acquitted on ALL charges.  Judge Peter Cahill says, ‘it will be an easy appeal what with Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters urging VIOLENCE on American society NO MATTER WHAT VERDICT THE JURY DELIVERS.  (Note- we have said this and will continue saying it, ‘we think Officer Chauvin is going to get off.  Completely.  The blame will rest on liberal Democrats.  Period.  We think that had not the liberals involved themselves, had not the city of Minneapolis paid George Floyd’s family in the week prior to the start of the trial, they may have gotten a just verdict whereas now- as with George Zimmerman, aka the “White Hispanic,” they won’t get the verdict they seek.  IF they do, Chauvin will beat it on appeal).
  83. 2021 Monday L: NOTABLE DEATH– Former Vice President Walter F. Mondale who served under President Jimmy Carter from January 20, 1977, to January 20, 1981, died today in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the age of 93.  He also was the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 1984 with New York Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro, D-NY 9th congressional district as his running mate.  They were soundly defeated by President Ronald Reagan.  Bon voyage, Mr. Vice President.   In other notable news, we learn today that Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick did not die from having his head ‘stoved in with a fire extinguisher’ as multiple media sources proclaimed for months on end during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021, but from a combination of two strokes caused by chemical irritants sprayed in his face by Antifa ‘protesters.’
  84. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 505,737,568 confirmed cases, +718,359, 6,227,272 confirmed deaths, +2,913 and 457,655,561 confirmed recoveries, +1,211,298.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 566,856 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 202,101 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 454 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

[iv] Nationalist China is FREE China, the true owners of mainland China.  Driven off the mainland by the Reds in 1948-49 to the island of Formosa, renamed Taiwan, these people held the seat in the United Nations now held by the communists.  Many believe it is high time we return to a Two-China Policy that would recognize both the Free and the communist governments would benefit the entire world.  Many also believe it is time to boot Red China out of the UN and welcome Taiwan back in, especially since the communists gave the world the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis.

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

[vi] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of both Koss and Back Street Crawler when we did the previous batch of famed British bands.

[viii] We are hopeful we will present the music of the Band and of its individual members sometime in 2024-2025.  Great music by a superb band

  75. 2021 Wednesday A: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS– Customs and Border Patrol reported today the arrests of MS-13 gangbanger thugs crossing the southern border.  Shoot them like the dogs they are.   Next, the Joe Biden administration is opening two new illegal alien holding pens near the southern border with Mexico.  Congressman Tom McClintock, R-CA 4th congressional district, told Newsmax today that ‘NO nation has ever survived an influx of illegal immigrants the way our country is experiencing.’  He is 100-percent correct.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump says he’s glad that the Biden administration is considering finishing the border wall but says he doubts that Joe Biden is making the decisions.
  76. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 NEWS I– A growing number of governors across the United States are making a stand against any suggestion of the Biden administration’s idea of forcing everyone to present COVID-19 vaccine passports to return to normal life.  This never happened when homos were running amok, and HIV-AIDS was a true crisis so any suggestion we should have proof of vaccine is a big overstep for government.  We are not the flipping Chi-Coms.   It’s good that Joe Biden is facing major backlash against him and his administration for persisting in this stupidity.  Still, the old coot persists in telling Americans that ‘IF we want to celebrate the Fourth of July, we had better have proof of insurance.’  Wow.  A dictator…Meanwhile, medical professionals are blasting the Centers for Disease Control for being slow to update information regarding the coronavirus.
  77. 2021 Wednesday C: COVID-19 NEWS II– Next, the Centers for Disease Control report that the dominant strain in the U.S. is now the United Kingdom variant.  Moving on, skin reactions reported by those who have taken either the AstraZeneca or the Moderna vaccines are said to be ‘nothing,’ ‘not dangerous,’ ‘don’t worry about them’ to which we say, “We have seen people with their skin peeling off, don’t lie to us and tell us it’s no flipping deal.”  We will one year before we take the ‘mark of the beast’ upon ourselves… Elsewhere, the University of Oxford is pausing a pediatric trial of the COVID-19 AstraZeneca vaccine.  No reason is reported for the stoppage.  Yes, we are curious.

  79. 2021 Wednesday E: NATIONAL NEWS I– the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin continues into its 8th day.  Thugs across the country are threatening violence.  Folks, it’s time the rule of law is reestablished, and law and order are upheld.  People can protest but once you begin committing acts of violence, once you raise your arm to throw an accelerant, and once you begin raping, robbing, and looting, it is important that law enforcement shoot those people down.  If we return to the nation, we were back in the 1950s and before, people could protest but violent scumbags did not run amok.  Remember: government’s first order of the day is to protect life and property.  Period.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump blew Fake News Media reports that Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, NEVER asked for a blanket pardon.’  Why would he?  He did nothing wrong.  
  80. 2021 Wednesday F: NATIONAL NEWS II– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer is urging progressives (communists) not to take drastic actions against the court and that packing the court would dilute its importance and its influence.  Will progressives listen?  We doubt it.  Next, Amazon.com billionaire Jeff Bezos says he’s ‘all in with the Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill and the subsequent tax hikes.’  Sure, you are, Jeff, sure.  Next, New York- the Empire State- is nearing a deal to provide unemployment and COVID-19 relief to illegal aliens within their state at the cost of $2.1 billion.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, North Las Vegas, Nevada, Mayor John Lee is leaving the Democratic Party to become a Republican. 
  81. 2021 Wednesday G: ONGOING GEORGIA- PEACH STATE- UPROAR– Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, a political hack if one ever existed, has signed an executive order with which to try and mitigate the new election laws designed to improved voting in her state.   Meanwhile, enfeebled old Joe Biden continues celebrating companies and corporations pulling out of Georgia and encourages still more to do the same.  What a president.  Speaking of MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred’s decision to pull the All-Star Game out of Atlanta and relocate it to Colorado, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says ‘Manfred needs to buy a spine online.’  Amen.  Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, R-GA, says that ‘Joe Biden needs to smarten up’ so he knows of what he speaks.  Joe knows NOTHING.  The ever-stupid White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says the ‘Georgia law is built atop a lie.’[xi]

Trump officially endorses Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, in his race for U.S. Senate.  Next, Vice President Mike Pence has formed a new group- Advancing American Freedom Organization- with which to continue the Trump Miracle.  Elsewhere, Democrats in Maricopa County, Arizona, continue defying the state government’s demand for transparency in the 2020 Presidential and General Elections.  One-hundred-and-twelve days after the election, the Democrats continue trying to cover up the fact that they stole the elections, from President Trump and from Senator Martha McSally.  Speaking of Arizona, Governor Doug Ducey has signed a bill- H.B. 2111- that will make the Copper State a 2nd Amendment sanctuary state.  Next, Oregon Governor Kate Brown, DS, is threatening to use state law enforcement to eliminate ALL TRUMP SUPPORTERS within her state and seems to side with Antifa thugs and murderers.   Finally, Tennessee is pushing to re-establish the two-day waiting period for abortions.

Governor Justin Fairfax, a man with numerous sexual assault allegations lodged against him such as forcible sodomy, has compared himself to slain Emmett Till.  The POS lieutenant governor who only remains in his position because Governor Ralph Northam is a POS just as is Attorney General Mark Herring who has his own blackface problem and the next one in line to become governor.  Mr. Fairfax is seeking to become the next governor and honest news media people are beating him up over the allegations of rape lodged against him and he’s upset, he’s hurt, claiming he is being treated just like poor Emmett Till.  STFU.  Moving on, we learn today that the Joe Biden administration sent out more than 1.5 million COVID-19 relief checks, many of which went to people ineligible to receive them.  Elsewhere, noted legal scholar Jonathan Turley says that the ‘media failed to do its job on the Hunter Biden laptop story.’  Next, the Senate Dems find a way to sidestep the filibuster rule.

64. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 05, 2022

2021 Friday N: Diners enjoying an evening out in a restaurant in Mogadishu, Somalia, got the surprise of their lives when an explosives-laden vehicle crashed in through the front, detonated, killing at least 10, injuring another 30, with many more feared to be trapped in the rubble. The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes once again. We hope the diners had not yet paid their checks.

Ted Cruz win two states each; Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders wins 2 while his challenger Hillary Clinton wins one.   Meanwhile, a U.S. airstrike north of Mogadishu, Somalia, kills 150 Al-Shabbab militants, all members of the so-called “religion of peace.”
  62. 2017 Sunday: In an event that would prove to be true later, President Donald J. Trump accuses former President Barack Hussein Obama of ‘wiretapping Trump Tower’ in New York.  The news media laughed, Obama chuckled, and then as evidence began to appear, it sure looks like the anti-Trump coup plotters which include scum like John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok and his sex pal Lisa Page, James Comey, and even Hillary Clinton and Samantha Power all had a hand in the plot[ix].  Shame on them.   Elsewhere, Israel lessens penalties for people smoking the pakalolo in public.
  63. 2018 Monday: For the first time since becoming ‘supreme leader,’ Kim Jong Un meets South Korean officials when he hosts a dinner for them in Pyongyang.  We hope medical professionals checked out the South Korean diplomats and politicians for possible parasites.   Elsewhere, communist China commences its ‘two sessions,’ the annual confab of elected government officials and the Chinese Communist Party.  One thing they announce is an increase of 8-percent to the national defense budget.
  64. 2019 Tuesday: BREAKING NEWS: a major medical study in Denmark involving 650,000 children determined that the MMR vaccine does NOT increase the risk of autism as many anti-vaccine folks claim it does.   Meanwhile, Forbes reports that Kylie Jenner is the youngest-ever billionaire at the ripe old age of 21.   Elsewhere, Scott Gottlieb, head of the Food and Drug Administration, announces that he will resign as of next month. 
  65. 2020 Thursday: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Democrat-Massachusetts, becomes the next Democrat candidate seeking the 2020 presidential nomination to heed the writing on the wall.  A very unlikable candidate, she throws in the towel in an angry appearance before her supporters and is unwilling to endorse either remaining candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT.  Oh, Tulsi Gabbard, outgoing congresswoman from Hawaii remains in the fight but who knew.  Chef Elmer Hootenstein of the AICPENDBLOG.COM predicts on this date that Mr. Biden will beat Bernie for the nomination and that he will choose either Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama to be his running mate.  Then, after the DNC Convention in Milwaukee in July, something will happen that will drive Biden from the race and either Hillary or Michelle will become the nominee.  YOU heard it here first!
  66. 2021 Friday: Today is DAY 45 of the collapsing Biden-Harris administration.  Of course, the Chi-Coms are backing the senile old coot, they’re the ones keeping him going.  We shall see what we shall see.  What we are seeing is an invasion at our southern border with no one in the Chi-Com Joe Biden willing to stop it.  Immigration authorities are considering sending busloads of illegal alien brats to a military base in Virginia.  Other illegal aliens are gathering outside ports of entry all mysteriously wearing t-shirts demanding ‘Joe Biden let us in.’  Our military should evacuate the Capitol and relocate to the border to dig antipersonnel and antivehicle ditches, lay in minefields, foo gas pits, and other positions to repel the invasion.  Predator drones should circle overhead lighting up illegal alien vehicles and watercraft plying the waters of the Rio Grande back and forth bringing in thousands of illegal aliens.  It is us or them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court rules in a 5-3 decision with Amy Coney Barrett abstaining that “Illegal aliens and NOT the federal government have the burden of proof when it comes to fighting deportation orders.”  The high court also bows to a Biden administration request not to hear Trump-era cases regarding stopping funding to sanctuary cities and states.   Who needs court packing when you have a chief justice like John Roberts? 
  67. 2021 Friday A: In Sweden, an Afghan migrant carries out a knife and axe attack on Swedish citizens sending 22 people to the hospital.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace.’  Meanwhile, Pope Francis is visiting Iraq today.  We pray for his safety as we do not believe the Iraqis possess the ability to thwart an ISIS assault on the pontiff and his retinue.  The Christian community in Iraq has long been endangered thanks to the invasion of that country launched by President George W. Bush, RINO-Texas, in 2003 and the birth of ISIS, the proliferation of al-Qaida, and subsequent Iranian hegemony throughout the area.   
  68. 2021 Friday B: New Yorkers continue distancing themselves from rapidly imploding Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the “Love Gov,” the man who groomed female employees such as Charlotte Benning, asking them all sorts of personal questions, putting hands on them, and other obnoxious, sexist, despicable things that grade schoolers know is impermissible.  He also is in deep trouble over his jiggering and re-jiggering of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes-hospitals-to nursing homes and back to hospitals with which, he tried to cover his tracks in eliminating senior citizens and other vulnerable populations.  He did what the Nazis were doing in the 1930s, eliminating what THEY called ‘useless eaters,’ people who required more resources from the state than what they contributed to the state.  You can bet in this era of trillion-dollar PORKULUS bills that more older people are going to have to be denied life-saving operations and therapies so resources can be redistributed to others such as ILLEGAL ALIENS.    Speaking of the national debt, it’s spiraling out of control in the era of Biden executive orders and sycophantic bills from Democrats in Congress.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that ‘the Fed’s $4 trillion in ‘assets’ is created through ‘imaginary money’ such as buying up U.S. debt as it did bad mortgages back in the subprime mortgage collapse.  He says there must be more transparency.  
  69. 2021 Friday C: The United States added 379,000 jobs in February bringing down the unemployment numbers to 6.2-percent.  However, as the Democrats continue trying to shove a $15 per hour minimum wage through and as they continue bringing in hundreds of thousands more illegals- plus legalize the existing 30-50 million illegal aliens roaming the shadows of the country, unemployment is going to skyrocket as the Cloward and Piven strategy to topple the existing order and replacing it with socialism continues unabated.   Democrats agree on smaller but longer jobless aid to U.S. workers so they can continue sitting at home spanking the wank. 
  70. 2021 Friday D:  Two city council members in New Jersey have been indicted for engineering mass voting fraud in the Garden State by tampering with mail-in ballots.  Elsewhere, a journalist investigating violent crime in northern California is victimized by a gun-wielding robber.  In other fascinating news, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, Democrat, a man who had an ongoing sexual liaison with a Chi-Com agent, is suing President Donald J. Trump for causing him fear during the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Good luck with that you POS.  To alleviate such fears, General Russell Honoré- the man put in charge to get to the bottom of the riots- says a Quick Reaction Force must be kept in the nation’s capital at all times so IF so-called ‘right-wing mobs’ show up (but not left-wing mobs), they can restore order to the streets.  This will cost just $130 million per year to maintain.  What a load of crap.  Folks- there is BUT ONE REASON as to why troops still patrol Washington, D.C., ONE REASON: the Democrats KNOW that everyone knows they stole the 2020 Presidential Election.  Otherwise, WHY all the fear?  Why all the fencing?  Why all the troops, troops they despise, still on scene, patrolling the streets?  They know WE KNOW they stole the election and that what happened on January 6, 2021, was a FALSE FLAG OPERATION of epic proportions.   Hence why they are flooding the country with an army of military-aged illegal alien males.
  71. 2021 Friday E: Speaking of the Capitol Hill Riots, the Assistant Director of the FBI for Counterterrorism Jo Sanborn says that “NO FIREARMS were recovered from the more than 300 arrested on scene on January 6, 2021.  NO FIREARMS.”  Thus, we know that what happened on January 6 was indeed a FALSE FLAG OPERATION organized by the Democratic-Socialists to make it appear as though Trump supporters- note supporters of law and order- stormed the Capitol.  Much like Cesar Sayoc, the guy busted for sending ‘pipe bombs’ via the USPS to various Democrat politicians back in 2017 or so we recall, a man with Trump stickers plastered all over his van, the Capitol Hill Riots are just as phony.  The Democrats engineer these farces so they can use them for political subterfuge. 
  72. 2021 Friday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 115,781,179 confirmed cases, +313,555, 2,572,353, confirmed deaths, +6,984, and 65,296,409 confirmed recoveries, +262,009.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,130,219 confirmed cases, up 64,007 from yesterday’s reporting, 525,560 confirmed deaths, UP 1,708, and 106,309,314 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 197,083 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  (Note- send the J & J vaccine overseas to the Third World seeing as how fetal tissues from aborted children are used in both the making and testing of this vaccine).
  73. 2021 Friday G: 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: 3,587,946 confirmed cases, 53,586 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 441 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii once again has frozen its information…WHY?  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 346,058 confirmed cases, 5,098 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Connecticut: currently, they have 285,330 confirmed cases, 7,704 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 793,407 confirmed cases, 5,822 confirmed deaths, and 746,228 confirmed recoveries.  .
  74. 2021 Friday H: Somehow, the Democrats have been able to drive the markets back up on this Friday- it’s artificial, the collapse is still coming.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,496.30, UP 572.60 points (+1.85%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,920.50, UP 196.68 points (+1.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,841.94, UP 73.47 points (+1.95%).  The price of GOLD is $1,698.20 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.30 per troy ounce, +0.01 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,133.30 per troy oz, +5.00 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $4.10 per pound, +0.02 (+0.60%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,342.80 per troy oz, -11.60 (-0.49%) Same as yesterday.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.28 per barrel, +0.19 (+0.29%)  Gas price have gone up by 20 cents this past week.  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.30.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.94.
  75. 2021 Friday I: Update report on the illegal alien invasion at our southern border: CBP reports that 100,000 illegals were detained at the border in February which means at least 150,000 to 200,000 managed to slip through.  Not good.  In other news, we learn that California has a $15 billion surplus yet Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom has his hand out begging for federal money.  Speaking of Governor Newsom, the recall effort has more than 2 million signatures which spells doom for him.  The governor also offered the California Teachers Association a $6.6 billion deal if they would reopen the schools and they told him to ‘f**k off.’   IF we only had someone like Ronald Reagan who would tell the union, ‘go back to work or you are fired’ as he did the air traffic controllers.
  76. 2021 Friday J: A new book claims (and we believe this) former President Barack Hussein Obama feared this his former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden would embarrass himself if he ran in 2020.’  Well, it’s clear as to whose voice now whispers to Joe via his earpiece: Barack Hussein Obama.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump RIPS Joe Biden asunder over his appalling inhumane border policies, policies that allow for the victimization of women, children, and homos as they plod toward the border between Mexico and the U.S.  This is not right, Joe, and yet the leftists around Old Joe continue urging him to do nothing to halt the tidal wave.  Illegal alien hunting licenses coming soon?
  77. 2021 Friday K: The trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin begins on Monday.  He is the main defendant in the trial of four MPD officers involved in the death of George Floyd last May.  The city of Minneapolis as well as Hennepin County are fearful of mob violence and thus plan to spend up to $1 million securing not only the courthouse but five police precincts, government buildings and county buildings.  $645 thousand will be directed into fencing, additional law enforcement, and who knows?  Maybe even Minnesota National Guard.  Much like Democrats in Washington, D.C. have established “Fort Pelosi,” city and county officials want to follow the same strategies.  The fact that state Attorney General Keith Ellison, a Democrat Muslim, is personally trying the case could be reason enough for the extra security.  It sounds as though Officer Chauvin might be found innocent even though they are charging him with 2nd degree and possibly 3rd degree homicide as well as manslaughter which does not say much about Ellison’s prosecutorial abilities.  You heard it here first.
  78. 2021 Friday L: Although Democrats are celebrating the recent jobs report, 4.1 million Americans have been unemployed for six months or longer while another 3.5 million have completely left the work force.  Add to that the loss of 61,000 construction jobs- which the government lays at the feet of ‘severe weather conditions’ and not at the feet of Joe Biden who with the stroke of a pen eliminated thousands of heavy construction jobs.  Things will only continue to worsen thanks to the illegal alien invasion along the southern border.   Still, Democrats are claiming success by negotiating an agreement to continue jobless benefits of $300 per week for the unemployed until September 09, 2021.  At what point will the Chi-Coms say, “NO MORE MONEY?”  We suspect soon, about the same time the landing craft begin dropping their gates on the shores of Taiwan.
  79. 2021 Friday M: California health officials announce that as of April 1, 2021, people will be able to attend Major League Baseball games as well as outdoor concerts and other functions while NBA games and other indoor events remain off-limits.  Of course, masks will still have to be worn or the ‘mask police’ will come and arrest you.   In other Chi-Vi news, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster is lifting face mask requirements in restaurants and other facilities including government seeing as how cases of the Wuhan Meat Market Malady continue to lessen.  The governor is placing the responsibility onto citizens to do what they deem to be correct.
  80. 2021 Friday N: Diners enjoying an evening out in a restaurant in Mogadishu, Somalia, got the surprise of their lives when an explosives-laden vehicle crashed in through the front, detonated, killing at least 10, injuring another 30, with many more feared to be trapped in the rubble.   The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes once again.  We hope the diners had not yet paid their checks.  In other foreign news, YouTube is removing five channels utilized by the Myanmar junta calling the shots in Burma.  Liberals are angry that the generals in Myanmar are doing what the Democrats in Washington, D.C. are doing, i.e., launching a coup against the country with which they are charged to protect.  Thug politicians despise copycats. 
  81. 2021 Friday O: Speaking of the Democratic-Socialists, they are following the plan used by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who created a coup, had his loyal thugs ‘crush it,’ and then arrested and imprisoned tens of thousands of his ‘enemies’ within government, the military, law enforcement, and among the citizens of a once-proud country.   Something else of interest, Tucker Carlson on Fox News aired a story tonight in which, he said- no kidding!- the federal government is going to bestow an award on every National Guard trooper at the Capitol- the Presidential Inauguration Support Ribbon- that if true is the most bull crap thing we’ve ever heard since President Barack Obama considered creating an award for the U.S. military for NOT firing back at jihadists if civilians were in the area.  Yet, as you should recall, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden (at the time) droned more innocent civilians than terrorists during their eight years at a reported 90-percent innocents killed per 10-percent Islamist thugs.  My, my, my!
  82. 2021 Friday P: Ex-Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall told Dallas reporters that a police officer suspected of ordering a double kidnapping followed by a double murder which apparently occurred was allowed to remain on the job for longer than 18 months instead of being placed on administrative leave.  The Dallas County D.A., the Dallas P.D., and the Feds wanted to allow Officer Bryan Riser to remain on the jobs so as not to arouse suspicion.  Apparently, his crimes were not connected to his job as a law enforcement officer although no additional details have been released.  Current Police Chief Eddie Garcia says they have ‘no known motive’ for the crimes committed by Officer Riser.  
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Since the Democratic-Socialist predicted QAnon invasion of the Capitol yesterday didn’t pan out, the Dems are now saying, ‘it’s on for March 20, 2021, so everyone will have to flee who works in Congress while the National Guard will remain into May (or longer).’  Why the Democrats say this moronic bulls**t is beyond us because IF an invasion was coming, they wouldn’t just magically appear out of thin air.  They would have to either parachute in or would have to assemble outside the capital for approximately one week during which time the Democrats could launch air-and-artillery strikes on them, sending them scurrying back into their QAnon sewers.  The American people must stand up to this insanity and not allow their elected leaders to continue perpetuating it.  Otherwise, the RED STATES and counties are going to secede and leave pockets of BLUE POLITICIANS isolated in pockets and islands.
  84. 2021 Friday R: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1639 with a jackpot of $55 million up for grabs: 10, 11, 17, 27, 54, and Mega 20.  Out of 52,457 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,996 apiece.
  85. 2022 Saturday:  Maybe there’ll be an update, maybe there won’t.  Then again, the Joestapo could shut us down.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band’s success was relatively short-lived which was sad, but the band was fraying at the seams.  The next album they released was “Moondog Matinee” (October 15, 1973) featured no new material, but all covers of classic rock and rockabilly tunes the group played in their earliest day.  The band features the same lineup of  Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  Sadly, success and too much time together on the road and in the studio combined with all the excesses stardom brings was proving to be difficult to fight.  One can hear the fabric ripping if one listens closely enough to the music.  Ah, well, even having issues, it’s still an album worth owning which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and then pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be extremely glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY MARCH 05, 2022, BLOG POST #4,470

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

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

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


Saturday, March 05, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[ii] We promoted the music of Blossom Toes beginning on Monday, 01-June-2015 through Sunday, 07-June-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

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

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

[vi] We promoted the music of Led Zeppelin- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through vocalist Paul Rodgers of both Free and Bad Company on Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope you will check them all out.

[vii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[viii] Hugo Chavez should be frying in hell.  The scum was such a believer in the strength of socialism that his Cuban doctors killed him via their shoddy treatment.  The POS should have sought U.S., UK, or even Russian medical treatment and perhaps he would still be alive.  And this is the crap that socialist candidate Bernie Sanders, senator from Vermont, wants to force on Americans?

[ix] Everyone involved in the coup to remove Trump from office, destroy his family and his businesses should be in prison.  Lock them up, President Trump, because this f**king scum would sure as hell lock YOU up.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

48. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2022

30. 1944 Thursday A: An hour before midnight last night, the Germans trapped in the Cherkassy pocket began their breakout. The 72nd Infantry Division, the SS Viking Division, the 57th, 88th, and 389th Divisions are bringing up the rear while the 1st Panzer Division is leading the way. The wounded are being left behind. Everything is conducted in silence as much as possible and the Soviets are unaware of the breakout.

  59. 2019 Sunday: In the streets of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, thousands protest in the streets over government corruption and inflation.  What else is new?  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is facing massive pushback from Democrats and RINO Republicans alike following his Friday declaration of a National Emergency along the southern border.  He did this as Congress refuses him funds for the extremely necessary border wall.  Maggots.
  60. 2020 Monday: Disheveled old crone, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, continues braying about President Trump being ‘impeached for life,’ that he ‘was not acquitted’ as ‘without a trial’ there can be no acquittal.  What should be clear to everyone is that this haggard old wretch should undergo impeachment herself because she has clearly lost her mind.  We hope in November 2020 the good people of her district will vote her out of office and send her home to sit in a rocking chair, a shawl covering her sagging shoulders, and that someone will turn on reruns of Matlock while spoon-feeding her chicken noodle soup.  We place part of the blame on her for convincing that Punjab POS Sundar Pichai to close our two Google  Blogger sites, simply because she won the Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Say it ain’t so, Speaker Pelosi!  Meanwhile, additional negative information continues coming out on former New York City Mayor “Mini” Mike Bloomberg showing him disparaging farmers and factory workers all the while crowing about ‘stop and frisk’ taking down minority thug kids in his city.  What a bum.
  61. 2020 Monday A: Yesterday, it was 1,100-plus former Department of Justice officials demanding U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr over his request for Justice and for the judge in the Roger Stone case to reconsider the harsh sentence being imposed.  Today, it’s more than 2,000 former DOJ employees which tells you just how many hardcore leftists we have in the Justice Department.  Roger Stone does not deserve prison.  Period.
  62. 2021 Wednesday: 29 of the Biden Regime: THE BIG NEWS OF THE DAY- RUSH LIMBAUGH HAS SUCCUMBED TO LUNG CANCER AT AGE 70.  ALTHOUGH NONE OF US EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING YOU OVER THE PAST THREE DECADES-PLUS, WE ALL FEEL AS THOUGH YOU WERE A PERSONAL FRIEND.  GOD BLESS AND WE WILL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  63. 2021 Wednesday A: After being slammed since he entered office for pulling back from America’s Middle Eastern allies- primarily Israel and Saudi Arabia- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Joe reached out to Israel today.’  Wow.  Good for you, Chi-Com Joe!  Meanwhile, the Biden administration scraps a deal his predecessor made with ICE and Border Patrol unions that gave them VETO POWER over any misguided presidential decisions such as Joe Biden throwing open the southern border and allowing illegal aliens to stream in like lice off a dead dog.  In other Joe Biden news, the 46th president is under fire for his ‘soft-as-hell’ policies on the Chi-Coms.  He won’t go near the rampant human rights abuses in communist China, a place where institutional rape of Uighur Muslim women continues around the clock, a place where religious and ethnic minorities find themselves locked up in ‘job training centers.’   Come on, man, say something, Joe!  Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘Joe is more or less spewing Chi-Com propaganda by not calling his masters out for their atrocious dismissal of human rights abuses in that country.’ 
  64. 2021 Wednesday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, bloggers in that country must now receive approval from the communist government before they comment or put-up posts speaking about the law, the military, and/or politics.  In other Far East news, the citizens of Myanmar are throwing up roadblocks and protesting the military junta that took control of their country, locked up their civilian leaders, and is allowing loads of prison scum out into the streets to terrify the nation’s citizens. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday C: In Utah, the move to censure freshman RINO Senator Mitt Romney for voting to convict former President Donald J. Trump is gathering steam.  Within a span of about 36 hours, the movement has gained more than 5,000 signatures.  Meanwhile, the GOP is going to target the highly disliked teachers’ unions in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Governors should fire these losers like President Ronald Reagan fired striking air traffic controllers.   Speaking of teachers’ unions, a billboard in Sonoma County, California, tells it like it is: “HAVE YOU SEEN OUR MISSING KIDS (referring to students), LAST SEEN ON MARCH 13, 2020?  Elsewhere, following last week’s vote of 15-8 in the South Carolina State Senate, the state’s House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill limiting abortions.  Once an ultrasound detects a fetal heartbeat, NO abortions can occur.  Period. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday D:  In New York, a bipartisan push to force the criminal Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to share ALL information on the more than 9,000 nursing home deaths in the Empire State from his COVID-19 policies.  Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding answers NOW.  Yet, this slope-headed cretin won’t apologize nor admit fault for the massive number of deaths that occurred on his watch, especially when President Donald J. Trump provided him with loads of help.   In other state news, In other Cuomo news, baby brother Chris, a dimwit on CNN, is also getting blasted for remaining mum on the outrages older brother Andrew has committed in New York.  Typical leftwing family member bums.  Georgia passes a bill that increases the penalties for violence committed by mobs which means Antifa and Black Lives Matter human garbage may soon find themselves in the joint. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday E: The Biden administration says the U.S. is going to pay the World Health Organization $200 million it claims the nation owes.  Everything Trump did, Biden is overturning (well, Barack Obama is overturning).  Speaking of overturning things, Joe Biden is backing away from the TikTok ban which means the Chi-Coms will be able to begin harvesting information from America’s young people being the dimwits they are.  Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, calls for harmony among members of the Grand Old Party.   Elsewhere, the NASA Mars Rover is set to deploy to the surface of the Red Planet tomorrow.  Next, former Texas Governor Rick Perry says, ‘Texans don’t want the federal government controlling their power grid.’  Hell, no one should want that, especially a freedom-loving state like the Lone Star State.  Speaking of the crazy winter weather sweeping through the region, at least 26 people have died in the storms.  Elsewhere, well-known high IQ genius Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke says, “Texas is a failed state.”  It requires a dimwit to see failure.  The only failure is that Austin allowed Green New Deal morons to push their bogus renewable energy sources.
  68. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,678,891 confirmed cases, +432,687, 2,423,443, confirmed deaths, +12,988, and 61,717,022 confirmed recoveries, +284,639.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,030,330 confirmed cases, up 64,545 from yesterday’s reporting, 492,947 confirmed deaths, UP 1,831, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last three-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 164,356 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  69. 2021 Wednesday G: 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: 3,498,760 confirmed cases, 47,446 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 333,185 confirmed cases, 4,777 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia: currently, they have 555,592 confirmed cases, 7,075 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 734,575 confirmed cases, 5,441 confirmed deaths, and 673,908 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Italy: 2,735,591 confirmed cases, 94,171 confirmed deaths, and 2,251,734 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, we learned today what we already knew: the Chi-Coms spearheaded a massive disinformation campaign to cover up their role as the ORIGINATORS of the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Go figure.
  70. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,613.02, UP 90.27 points (+0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,965.50, DOWN 82.00 points (-0.58%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,931.33, DOWN 1.26 points (-0.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,775.10 per troy oz., +2.30 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $27.45 per troy ounce, +0.13 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,262.30 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.37%) while the price of COPPER is $3.82 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,369.20 per troy oz, -18.50 (-0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.72 per barrel, +0.58 (+0.95%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.22.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000019 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, Australia says the new rules regarding search engines and social media sites to pay for their news feeds is working out well.

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

Wednesday, February 17, 2021, Today in History:  

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

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


Thursday, February 17, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

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

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  67. 2018 Saturday: The New York Times reported an accusation from actress Uma Thurman that disgraced movie mogul and BIG Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein had forced himself on her sexually years ago in a London hotel room; Weinstein acknowledged making an “awkward pass” (which means he did his best to RAPE her) but strongly denied any physical assault. 
  68. 2019 Sunday: In the lowest scoring super bowl of all time, Super Bowl LIII, the New England Patriots defense stifled the high-scoring Los Angeles Rams by a final score of 13-3.  This was perhaps the most boring super bowl of all time.  Julian Edelman was the game’s MVP as he provided most of the offense that won the game.  Maroon 5, Big Boi and some other schlub were the half-time show.  Elsewhere, Pope Francis becomes the first Roman Catholic pontiff to visit the Arabian Peninsula when he visits Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates.
  69. 2020 Monday: Much to the shock of his radio listeners, Rush Limbaugh announced that his doctors had diagnosed him with advanced lung cancer.  He promises to soldier on, and we certainly hope that he can.  We are rooting for you, Big Guy, but please, give up the stogies.   Elsewhere, as cases of COVID-19 continue getting out of hand, the Cruise Lines International Association bans all cruise lines stops in mainland China.  Meanwhile, on the Greek island of Lesbos which is overrun with thousands of Muslim ‘migrants’ from the Middle East, riot police have to break out tear gas and batons to quell migrants rioting and burning their holding camps over poor conditions.  The answer is simple: GO HOME.
  70. 2020 Monday A: As the impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump nears its conclusion in the U.S. Senate, House managers (prosecutors) and defense attorneys for the 45th president begin making their closing remarks.  West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin urges for censure rather than conviction but of course, his far-left Democratic Party colleagues don’t listen to him.  The trial has been a farce from start to finish, mostly boring but at other times laughable.  The Democrats genuinely believe they are ‘killing it’ when in fact, they are turning off millions of Americans. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday: U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen calls a meeting with the SEC and the Federal Reserve over the GameStop craze.  Apparently, some people can make big money and others cannot; what a shame.  Next, as the GOP implores Joe Biden to agree to a lower COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill, he waves them off- no way.   Next, the House GOP are holding a meeting to determine the futures of Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene and Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney who has become extremely toxic.  We expect Greene will lose all committee assignments and will suffer in-party censure whereas a party will be thrown for Cheney.  IF this occurs, my colleagues in California say the days of voting for Kevin McCarthy are fast approaching an end.   Speaking of California politics, reprobate Democrat Congressman Adam “POS” Schiff is badgering soon-to-be-former Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to make him the Golden State’s attorney general. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday A: The un-American New York Times is facing surprising blowback following their encouragement of Joe Biden to form a “1984-style” Truth Commission with which, liberals and BIG TECH can track, monitor, and disappear Americans’ online words and deeds.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court does not accede to the Biden administration’s request to toss hearings on Trump administration immigration policies into the garbage, merely postpones them.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, Sinophile U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken announces the U.S. and Russia have extended the New Start Treaty for another five years.   Finally, Claudia Tenney, congresswoman from New York’s 22nd Congressional District declares victory with a 123-vote lead over sitting congressman Anthony Brindisi.
  73. 2021 Wednesday B: House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she with the eyes drooping in two different directions, says ‘a 9/11-style TRUTH COMMISSION       is necessary to figure out how the Capitol Building was stormed by Antifa members posing as Trump supporters on January 6.  We doubt anything more will come from this because as numerous video clips continue surfacing showing Capitol Hill police officers waving the FALSE FLAG operators into the building, there can be but one conclusion: Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- as head of the Capitol Police Department- gave the word to allow her Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs easy entry in the hope they could use it against former President Donald J. Trump.  We look forward to the results of yet another bogus ‘investigation’ led by Democrats.  Elsewhere, in California, former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer has thrown his hat into the ring to replace rapidly disappearing Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  The mayor’s first campaign ads are spectacular, and we hope he will be able to take the seat and save the state.    Finally, climate fraud John F. Kerry is blasted for flying in his PRIVATE JET to receive a ‘climate award.’  Hypocrite!
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Congresswoman Nancy Mace calls out the Baby Evita- Sandy Cortez- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- the biggest leftwing crybaby in Congress, over her claims that she was cowering in her office closet while the EVIL MAGA supporters were outside in the hallway.  Congresswoman Mace who is two doors down from Sandy Cortez says, “IT NEVER HAPPENED.”  Yet, the mainstream news media remains incurious.  Personally, we know AOC had little to fear because she was briefed like everyone else in the Democratic Party that the Antifa and BLM human garbage were going after Republicans.   Elsewhere, Cancel Culture continues trying to destroy Americans, the latest target being Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame.  All because he believes the plentiful evidence of election fraud in November 2020, everyone is trying to shut him up, even that putz Bob Sellers on Newsmax who would not permit him to speak the day before.  Sorry, Newsmax, you need to boot Sellers back to FNC.
  75. 2021 Wednesday D: Communist China warns U.S. Secretary of State Sinophile Anthony Blinken NOT to interfere when it comes to Hong Kong either.  Blinken and the U.S. have already been warned off about interfering in Taiwan so now the Biden administration has been told to butt out on the issue of Hong Kong, too.  Elections have consequences- hey, Joe: are we going to return to the Transpacific Partnership, too?   Speaking of the State Department, its spokesperson says a U.N. ambassador must be confirmed and soon IF the United States is going to hold the Chi-Coms accountable.   Meanwhile, we learn that White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, stammering, stuttering, and always ‘circling back’ to answer reporters sent a homophobic tweet about Sen. Lindsey Graham, calling him, “Lady G.”  My, don’t you just love the ‘beautiful people’ that aren’t racists, bigots, homophobes, xenophobes, transphobes, haters, white supremacists, and the like?  Good one, Jen, good one.
  76. 2021 Wednesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 104,142,856 confirmed cases, +570,195, 2,260,283, confirmed deaths, +17,045, and 57,839,230 confirmed recoveries, +336,520.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,730,817 confirmed cases, up 206,599 from yesterday’s reporting, 453,059 confirmed deaths, UP 5,312, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 48,215 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  77. 2021 Wednesday F: 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: 3,350,293 confirmed cases, 41,811 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 318,967 confirmed cases, 4,402 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Florida: currently, they have 1,744,619 confirmed cases, 27,467 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 667,216 confirmed cases, 4,928 confirmed deaths, and 589,288 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Brazil: 9,296,245 confirmed cases, 226,666 confirmed deaths, and 8,160,929 confirmed recoveries.

  79. 2021 Wednesday H: The U.S. Senate via ‘budget reconciliation process’ has passed Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill.  With the cash flowing in from communist China, this bill will bankrupt the country for generations to come.   Speaking of BIG BUCKS, here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3531 with a $17 million pot up for grabs: 04, 15, 27, 28, 34, and Mega 16.  Out of 98,965 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $37,233.  The winning ticket was sold at 7-Eleven at Carnelian Bay, CA 96140.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #817 with $20 million on the line: 05, 37, 40, 64, 66, and Powerball 05.  Out of 50,955 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,997 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by English folk-rock band, Fairport Convention, “By Popular Request,” came out on January 18, 2012.  This album is unique in the band’s catalog, rather like Family’s “Old Songs, New Songs”[v] that came out back in the early 1970s.  Family- another British band, albeit a hard-rocking-psychedelic band of sorts- made changes in record labels and recorded their best tunes over again and released them as they wanted them to be originally.  In the case of Fairport Convention’s album for today, they have 13 of their classic tracks re-recorded for their fan base.  The tunes selected for this release were voted on by their fans at numerous concerts and boy, oh, boy, what a great album this is.  The band features the current lineup of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[ii] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of these foundational rockers at some point in the not so distant future.

[iv] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[v] Back in the day while we were with Google Blogger- before the maggots started ghosting us to our readers- we presented the “Old Songs, New Songs,” album by Family on Saturday, October 12, 2013.  Although you cannot find the post, we never forget the good work we did for our readers.  Perhaps one day, we will be able to run through the more than 4,500 albums we have shared with our readers.   Note- Google Blogger was so devious, so deceptive, that they blocked our links to Amazon.com where our fans could go purchase them which truly sucked just as they cut off our advertising revenue.  We hope one day to settle the score with that c**ksucker Sundar Pichai and his Chi-Com-backed POS company.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  18. 1944 Thursday: The Royal Air Force drops 2,300 tons of bombs on the Nazi capital of Berlin.  Elsewhere, on the Eastern Front, German positions around Leningrad are becoming untenable.  In some areas as they attempt to withdraw, Soviet gunners turn the artillery that had been bombarding the historic city for more than two years on them as they retreat.  To the south, the fight to reduce the Cherkassy pocket- dubbed by the Germans as the “Witches Cauldron”- continued, a battle that began on Christmas Eve and still was raging.  Ordered by Hitler to stand and fight, the Germans were trying to figure how to pull out of the ‘cauldron’ before they ended up like their comrades in Stalingrad did the previous year: annihilated.

Barkley.  Prior to becoming president, he served his nation as its 34th vice president.  In this capacity, he served under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt from January 20, 1945, to April 12, 1945.  Upon the death of President Roosevelt, the Democrat served as president from that date until today.

Humphrey takes the oath of office as the 38th vice president of the United States. 
  30. 1965 Wednesday A: Meanwhile, rock-and-roll promoter Alan Freed, 43, died in Palm Springs, California.  Finally, the Byrds[vi] recorded the Bob Dylan[vii] song, “Mr. Tambourine Man” at Columbia Records in Hollywood, California.

  38. 1986 Monday: The United States observed the first federal holiday in honor of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.  Meanwhile, Britain and France announced their plans to build the Channel Tunnel, which now helps illegal immigrants from the Middle East and Africa cross over into Britain.   Elsewhere, in Marshall, Minnesota, heavyweight boxer Jimmy Young wins a unanimous, 10-round decision over his opponent, Rocky Sekorski.  Young’s pro record went to 31-16-2 while that of Sekorski went to 30-16-2.
  39. 1989 Friday: George Herbert Walker Bush underwent inauguration as the 41st president of the United States and Dan Quayle as the 44th vice president.

  45. 2001 Saturday: George Walker Bush became America’s 43rd president after one of the most turbulent elections in U.S. history.  His second-in-command, Vice President Richard “Dick” Cheney- a man who would propel the U.S. into two, extremely unnecessary wars, took his oath, too.  (Many believed that VP Cheney was calling the shots from behind the curtain).  
  46. 2003 Monday: Secretary of State Colin Powell, faced with stiff resistance and calls for caution, bluntly told the Security Council that the U.N. “must not shrink” from its responsibility to disarm Saddam Hussein’s Iraq.  Caricaturist Al Hirschfeld died in New York at age 99.  Pollster Burns W. “Bud” Roper died on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, at age 77.

  51. 2013 Sunday: President Barack Obama undergoes his second inauguration in the Blue Room of the White House marking the beginning of his second term in office.  His second-in-command, Vice President Joseph R. Biden, also takes his oath.  In 2020, Biden would run for president.

  54. 2016 Wednesday: Both NASA and NOAA announce that 2015 WAS THE HOTTEST YEAR ON RECORD since records began being kept in 1890.  This, of course, becomes a common refrain year after year after year as the Climate Change alarmists continue screeching, “THE SKY IS FALLING, THE SKY IS FALLING,” yet, the sky NEVER FALLS.  Meanwhile, Caltech scientists release more ‘evidence’ that there could very well be a ‘Planet NINE’ on the outer edges of the Solar System, far beyond the Kuiper Belt. 
  55. 2017 Friday: Following the oath taken by Vice President-elect Mike Pence to become the nation’s 48th vice president, Donald Trump took the oath of office as the 45th president of the United States, pledging emphatically to empower America’s ‘forgotten men and women.’  Protesters registered their rage against the new president in a chaotic confrontation with police just blocks from the inaugural parade, screaming, crying, melting down, and some such as Madonna threatening to blow up the White House.  What a bunch of leftist trash.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms the first two Cabinet picks of President Trump- James “Mad Dog” Mattis to become his secretary for defense and John Kelly to head Homeland Security, both of whom are former generals. 
  56. 2017 Friday A:  Across the world in Syria, ISIS destroys portions of the ancient Roman amphitheater in Palmyra by blowing it up with TNT.   Behead this murderous scum.  Elsewhere in Syria, either U.S. or Russian warplanes carry out an airstrike on ISIS positions west of Aleppo killing at least 40 or more thugs and wounding loads of others.
  57. 2018 Saturday: In St. Albans, Hertfordshire, bass player with the Zombies[xii], Argent, and the Kinks[xiii]– Jim Rodford- died in a fall at his home on this date; he was 76-years-old.  Meanwhile, a dispute in Congress over spending and immigration forced scores of federal government agencies and outposts to close their doors; federal officials turned tourists away from sites such as the Statue of Liberty and Philadelphia’s Independence Hall.  However, two days later, Congress voted to temporarily pay for resumed operations.  On the anniversary of President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration, left-wing demonstrators in cities across the country marched in support of female empowerment and denounced Trump’s (suspected but unproven) views on immigration, LGBT rights, and other issues.  Widespread belief is that POS such as Georgy Soros and Tom Steyer, among others, fund these crackpot demonstrations.
  58. 2019 Sunday: In the NFC Championship Game, the visiting Los Angeles Rams stun the home team favorite New Orleans Saints in OT by a final score of 26-23.   In the AFC Championship Game, the visiting New England Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs, also in OT, by a final score of 37-31.  Elsewhere, the march of peace continues.  Following suspension of diplomatic relations in 1972, Chadian President Idriss Deby and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu restore diplomatic relations in Chad’s capital of N’Djamena. Peace is awesome!
  59. 2020 Monday: Violence continues flaring across parts of the Middle East and Africa.  A female Boko Haram suicide bomber in the African nation of Chad kills at least nine civilians and wounds another 2-3 in a town.  In Yemen, the death toll from a recent U.S. drone strike on a mosque/military training center sees a death toll of at least 116 people, all said to be innocent civilians.  Elsewhere, violence continues flaring in Kashmir, India, as several militants and a police officer are slain in attacks.   Finally, as the COVID-19 epidemic gets underway, startled communist Chinese officials are trying to get to the bottom of the growing crisis in Wuhan, China.
  60. 2021 Wednesday:  NOT OUR PRESIDENT, folks: Joseph R. Biden Jr. took the oath of office today as the nation’s 46th president while his heir apparent Kamala Harris took the oath of office as the nation’s 49th vice president.  The oaths they swore are to uphold the U.S. Constitution and all the laws of the United States.  While preaching unity, they insult their political opponents every opportunity they get while GOP leadership in the House and Senate are already brown-nosing the duo.  Disgraceful.   Many Americans are renouncing their GOP membership beginning today including several chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We expect to see an avalanche of millions of similarly disgruntled Republicans following in our heels.
  61. 2021 Wednesday A: Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, a fair-weather Republican if ever one existed says that Mitch McConnell should ‘unequivocally oppose’ the second impeachment of Donald J. Trump, especially now that he’s out of office.  Elsewhere, Donald Trump flew out of Joint Base Andrews to his home in Florida earlier today.  Meanwhile, apparently some knucklehead phoned in a ‘bomb threat’ to the U.S. Supreme Court but all the radical, right-wing, QAnon violence the Democrats swore was going to explode all over the place has not happened.  We see it for what it is, folks, just another attempt at tarring and feathering all Trump supporters.  Finally, both drooling House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and forever-angry Hillary Rodham Clinton are trying to revive the long-dead strawman of Trump-Russia Collusion when the two should be investigating Communist China-Democratic Party Collusion.
  62. 2021 Wednesday B: Outgoing President Trump issued 70 commutations and 73 pardons including one for Judge Jeannine Pirro’s ex-husband, Al.  Also, in his final hours, the outgoing president issued oil drilling leases in Alaska’s Wildlife Refuge.  Elsewhere, Ret. Gen. Lloyd Austin, ‘President Biden’s’ pick for Defense secretary says he is willing to lift the ban on transgenders serving in the U.S. military, one imposed by the previous administration because of the exorbitant costs transgender service personnel cost the American taxpayers.  Here we go.   A return to identity politics of all types- how soon before ‘furries’ and pedophiles and peeping toms and S & M’ers and multiple-partner marriages and everyone else with any kind of sexual proclivity gets special treatment from the ‘Biden administration?’
  63. 2021 Wednesday C: West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin says that launching infrastructure projects in all 50 states would get the American people back to work and back on their feet.  Sounds great, let’s see it happen.  Meanwhile, SpaceX bought two deep water offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico to convert into space ports.  Elsewhere, Ford and Mazda are recalling 3 million cars due to airbag problems.  Speaking of automobiles, KIA shares are soaring over rumors of electric car production.  We shall see.  Overseas, like the Orwellian figures they are, the Chi-Coms trot out Jack Ma, his first public appearance in months, so the world can see they haven’t offed him yet.  Read “1984” and you will understand WHY this matters.  Finally, ‘President Joe Biden’ sends an immigration overhaul bill to the U.S. Congress that will legalize between 11 and 40 million illegal aliens within the fabric of the country as well as will draw millions more to swamp our constitutional republic.
  64. 2021 Wednesday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden signed 15 executive orders today.  First, he is initiating the return of the United States to the Paris Climate Accord.  Next, he revoked the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, much to the horror of our northern neighbor, Canada.  Then, he removed his predecessor’s travel ban on people coming in from mostly Muslim countries with a history of terrorism.  Following that, he signed one strengthening DACA protections for illegal aliens brought here as children.  Speaking of illegals, he is removing the ‘emergency funding’ that diverted U.S. DOD funds to continue building the southern border wall.  He also mandated that in all federal buildings and on all federal lands, masks must be worn at all times.   Another one would also count illegal aliens in the U.S. Census which will enable Democrats to win more House seats because of higher population counts. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden also cried out against ‘domestic terrorism,’ ‘white supremacy,’ and other evil things among opposition party members.  He also said he can ‘hear the planet crying out to him.’  What is it about the bogus Climate Change scam liberals continue pushing?  First, if we are to believe in science then everyone should understand that the Sun is the number one driver of ‘climate change’ on every planet in the Solar System blessed with a climate.  In addition to that, millions of bombs were exploded in the previous century, nuclear weapons tests conducted below ground, at ground level, under the ocean, and even in the atmosphere and still, the planet is not dead, nor will it die.  Yet, they continue pushing this bogus scheme because it is a way of fleecing those with money and then redistributing it to wherever they wish.  “Taxing the air” is what they call it…
  66. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 96,640,644 confirmed cases, +581,653, 2,068,921, confirmed deaths, +15,537, and 53,267,010 confirmed recoveries, +372,842.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 24,433,486 confirmed cases, up 143,073 from yesterday’s reporting, 404,812 confirmed deaths, UP 1,749, and 10,562,082 confirmed recoveries, UP 51,007.
  67. 2021 Wednesday G: 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: 3,071,119 confirmed cases, 34,443 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 325 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 296,363 confirmed cases, 4,020 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Montana: currently, they have 90,255 confirmed cases, 1,094 confirmed deaths, and 84,255 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 575,842 confirmed cases, 4,181 confirmed deaths, and 478,897 confirmed recoveries.  
  68. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,188.38, UP 257.86 points (+0.83%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,457.25, UP 260.07 points (+1.97%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,851.85, UP 52.94 points (+1.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.60 per troy oz., +3.10 (-0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $25.90 per troy ounce, +0.134 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,114.50 per troy oz, -1.90 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.65 per pound, +0.0045 (+0.12%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,403.20 per troy oz, +38.20 (+1.62%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.96 per barrel, -0.35 (-0.66%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.58.
  69. 2021 Wednesday I: Upon entering the Oval Office, almost immediately, ‘President’ Joe Biden deletes the 1776 Project page from the White House website.  Instead, he will promote the 1619 Project which vilifies the founding of the United States and its history.  It is important to note that today’s Inauguration Day events appeared more like a totalitarian state than they did an American event, the peaceful transfer of power.  Armed soldiers everywhere, hardly any civilians around, in a locked-down, fortified city being patrolled by armed members of the military.  It appears the nation has been overthrown from within.  Meanwhile, the Iranians are licking their chops that they are going to see the reentry of the United States into the flawed, pro-Iranian JCPOA deal.  This will occur almost immediately.

  71. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson’s next album was a blast from the pass- “In Concert 1975,” an album that hit record store shelves on August 13, 2007.  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but then-wife, Linda Thompson, on vocals, the amazing John Kirkpatrick on accordions and concertinas, Dave Pegg on the bass, and Dave Mattacks on the drums.  The band rocks through 15 of their wonderful songs, covering both hard rockers and sentimental songs of sadness and longing, and everything in between.  We do hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-expanding collection of albums from ‘back in the day’ as compared to the crap one now must listen to on most radio stations like fish-lipped sluts with oversized butts, brain-dead rappers, and chicks with single names and little else to their credit, this is something that will raise your heart from the perverse gutter into which WOKE has shoved everyone’s ears.  Seek it out now and enjoy- you will be so glad you did, of that, we are certain.

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY JANUARY 20, 2022, BLOG POST #4,382

Wednesday, January 20, 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…

NOTE- THERE ARE SO MANY U.S. POLITICIANS WHO HAVE ENTERED OR EXITED OFFICE ON JANUARY 20, IT WOULD TAKE US MONTHS TO GET ALL OF THEM ENTERED SO PLEASE BEAR WITH US…


Thursday, January 20, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to share the music of Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[ii] If we are still here in another 20 years or so, you might see the music of Judas Priest, Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Iron Maiden, and the rest of the bands from that era. 

[iii] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

[iv] We promoted “Meet the Beatles” on Monday, 07-November-2016.

[v] Many debate as to WHY Francisco Franco did this.  Many believe it was to curry favor with the Allies as the war went against the Axis while others believed he sought to right the wrongs of Spain’s past.  In the end, his government was able to rescue hundreds of thousands of Sephardi Jews from the gas chambers.

[vi]We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of Bob Dylan sometime within the next 15-20 years.  Please, stick around for when we do.

[viii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[ix] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

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

[xi] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

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

[xiii] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure, beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

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, WE HAVE TO HELP JOE; OTHERWISE, THE GOP IS GOING TO MOP THE FLOOR WITH THE BODIES OF DEMOCRATS…
