  74. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Following threats by the Taliban, the U.S. announces plans to scale down the size of the U.S. Embassy in Kabul.  We suspect the U.S. will abandon the Afghans the same way the U.S. abandoned the South Vietnamese.   Elsewhere, U.S. forces continue coming under attack from Iranian-backed jihadists thanks to Joe Biden’s questionable airstrikes on their positions.   Meanwhile, after 62 years of socialist hell, Cubans are flooding the streets protesting communism and the damnation under which they have lived.  President Donald J. Trump came out today and said that ‘he stands with the Cuban people!’  Where is slobbering Joe Biden?  The regime in Havana claims the people are upset because they cannot keep the lights on and the Miami ‘mafia’ is trying to topple them. [xx]   Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says the Cuban protests are a ‘fight for freedom.’  The mayor of Miami, Francis X. Suarez says that what’s going on in Cuba could ‘affect the entire hemisphere.’
  75. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– In other interesting Foreign News/Overseas News, the Biden regime continues to support the 45th president’s policies when it comes to denying the South China Sea to the Chi-Coms.  How long, Joe?  In other communist news, Christian churches continue to burn in Canada while Nero- uh, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- son of one of the Rolling Stones- continues to play pocket pool in Ottawa.  Next, a south Florida man is at the forefront of the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise.
  76. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the federal government recruits its army of Joestapo COVID-19 door knockers, the recruits are told to pay NO attention to NO SOLICITING SIGNS, stick to the script, and get people’s health data.  Let me say this loud and clear: IF your Joestapo thugs violate HIPPA laws, we will photograph them and go to court.  YOU cannot come after anyone’s private health information, Joe.  (Note- a lot of people are going to get their asses beat and some are going to get shot.  Bea O’Malley still says that ‘every time white liberals encourage black folks to do something for their own good, it never works out well for them).
  77. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Meanwhile, as the fight to force EVERY U.S. CITIZEN to get vaccinated while allowing millions of illegal aliens to go about their business, a strange ally for the anti-Chi-Vi-vaxxers arrives on scene with teachers’ unions saying “HELL, NO” to mandatory vaccinations for a disease that 99-percent of the afflicted survive. In France, President Emanuel Macron is ordering ALL healthcare workers to get vaccinated or to give up their jobs. Next, the FDA is preparing to slap a warning of autoimmune disorders onto the Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccine.

  79. 2021 Monday L: Political News I– As the United States continues imploding by the day in the hands of drooling Joe Biden, patriotic Trump supporters are stepping up across the nation and seeking to win governorships in a number of states.  God bless them.  The fact that President Trump won 71-percent in the CPAC straw poll on Sunday adds fuel to the fire.  So does listening to losers such as Rep. Adam Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, mouth stupidities about how evil President Trump is.  (Note- this guy is on the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria nominees list).  Speaking of CPAC, YouTube blocked the American Conservative Union from sharing video from the Dallas CPAC conference.  These scumbags in Big Tech simply cannot get out of their own way.
  80. 2021 Monday M: Political News II– Entertainer John Rich said that liberalism is trashing Nashville as liberal moneybags are now employing censors to squelch the voices of patriotic Country Music stars.   Meanwhile, the G20 is aboard the Joe Biden ‘global minimum tax hike on corporations’ while smaller nations that can provide tax shelters in exchange for help in economic development are deadest against the BS.  Elsewhere, Democrats are fighting tooth and nail to stop the Pennsylvania Election Audit doing everything they can do to prevent it from occurring.  (Note- IF there’s nothing to hide, what’s the problem Keystone State Democrats?).  Meanwhile, Donald J. Trump Jr. is slamming the ATF nominee, David Chipman.  Everyone should.  Finally, Joe Biden continues making empty threats about Russia and their hackers, news reporters have begun laughing at the feeble old fool.

  82. 2021 Monday O: Mass Shootings News– A new report says that the massive increase in gun sales has little to nothing to do with the equally massive spike in gun crimes in BLUE STATES and BLUE CITIES.  Increased shootings occur in gun-free zones which are exclusive domains of DEMOCRATS.  Rep.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from solo Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, “Imagination,” came out on June 16, 1998.  Not commercially successful nor well-received, it is what it is.  At some point, composers begin to run out of compositions, which is what it is.  Still, Wilson does produce some gems and there are occasional ones here.  Wilson plays virtually all of the instruments and provides the vocals but also has a slew of studio musicians to help him round out the sound and to fill holes in the production.  We hope you seek this one out and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.  Check it out.  Now.

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

[iii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  On Tuesday, 18-January-2011, we promoted the album, “Rumors.”  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[v] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

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

[vii] 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.

[viii] 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.

186. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 05, 2022

1971 Monday: President Richard M. Nixon certified the 26th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which lowered the minimum voting age from 21 to 18. In 2019, the Democrats want to lower the age to 14 and to extend voting rights to felons in prison. It never stops. Many believe that voting should return to what the Founders wanted, ONLY people owning property had the right to vote. When you bestow voting on the masses, they will never vote for anything or anyone who does not represent their selfish interests like Democrats with trannys, illegal aliens, and criminal felons.

  65. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.303 per gallon, $3.011 in Florida, $4.021 in Hawaii, and $3.801 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Tennessee: $2.881.  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- Gabon: $4.166 per U.S. Gallon. [xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,487,342,957,683 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after ALL OTHERS, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is we return to the top with Japan with $1,251,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position.
  66. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 104 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 10 since her photo op visit to El Paso where everything was choreographed for the gibbering jackal.  According to One America News, the numbers are astounding and remember- somehow, the Dems are blaming President Donald J. Trump for the utter fiasco unfolding along the southern border.  Here are their numbers for this horrendous holocaust of illegals invading our country: first, (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the vermin flowing in from around the world: $553,348,672.  Imagine this money going to Tunnel 2 Towers, to Wounded Warriors, to Disabled American Vets?  It would be life changing.  Next, (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of unwashed humanity seeking to rape the United States: $203,293,130,752.  Imagine this money going to help the American people recover from the disaster of the Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus f**king up the country?  It would be amazing.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegal aliens who have swarmed into the USA this year: 2,083,591.  Fourth and final, here is the number of fence-climbing, river-swimming, visa-overstaying illegals lurking within the fabric of the U.S.- and remember- this is a conservative estimate: 36,083,592.  (Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Folks, we created this blog back in 2009 and at that time, we estimated the numbers of illegals in the United States to be between 35-50 million whereas now, we estimate there are between 75-100 million of illegals sucking away at what belongs to the American people.  This is NOT right.
  67. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Taliban is ramping up its warnings that if NOT ALL foreign troops evacuate Afghanistan, they will be considered open targets of the criminal Islamist thugs.  Elsewhere, BIG TECH companies are threatening to leave Hong Kong due to new Chi-Com laws being imposed on them.   In other fascinating news, we learn today that Israel used autonomous drone swarms to locate targets in the Gaza Strip during their 11-day conflict earlier in the year.  The drones located the targets, and the Israelis neutralized the scumbags.  Excellent.   Meanwhile, Russian warplanes are conducting bombing runs in the Black Sea while NATO allies- mostly the U.S. and Great Britain- are conducting military exercises with Ukraine.  Vladimir Putin did say last week that he could have sunk the British warship sailing the waters and that ‘World War III would NOT occur.’  Okay, Vlad.  Remember- the U.S. and the U.K. saved your asses in World War II.  POS.
  68. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden News I– When drooling Joe Biden was asked about recent Chi-Com and Russian cyberattacks on the U.S., he fumbled through his notes looking for the answer given him via his handlers.  How embarrassing this loser is to the American people in particular and the Free World in general.  Loser with a capital ‘L.’  Speaking of the cyberattacks of which slobbering Joe Biden knows nothing, they are demanding $70 million to restore data to the companies they have hacked.
  69. 2021 Monday I: Political News I– Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st congressional district, is drawing heavy flak for having proclaimed “Black people still aren’t free in the United States.”  Says a woman elected to the U.S. Congress by the citizens (and illegal aliens, too) of her district.  Are people like “The Bitch” this stupid not to see the irony in what she has said?  Citizens of Missouri, vote this piece of human fecal matter out of office in November 2022.  Another left-wing loser, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd CD, displayed her stupidity when she babbled that ‘Fourth of July applies ONLY to white men.’  Oh, tell us more, oracle of ignorance.  Speaking of female dogs, Governor ‘Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, CPUSA-MI, is trailing in new polls.  Good.  She must go, too.   Oh, since we are on this topic of female curs, Governor Kate Brown, CPUSA-OR, says that ‘FEMA is racist’ because they ‘won’t help illegal aliens’ in her state and that ‘illegal aliens are more important than native citizens.’  WTF is wrong with these people?
  70. 2021 Monday J: Political News II– In other political news, famed political strategist and historian Dick Morris says that the prosecutions going against President Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization are designed to ‘shut him up’ which they won’t.  Speaking of the President, Rep. James “Chi-Com Cash” Clyburn, CPUSA-SC 6th CD, says that ‘President Trump may have to come and testify before the ‘esteemed and apolitical’ January 06, 2021, Select Committee.’  Uh-huh.  In your dreams, communist bag man.  In other political news- and this is humorous- Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, says he ‘is considering a 2024 presidential run.’  Sure, you and Chris “Lard Lad” Christie, Mitt “The RINO” Romney, Nikki “Two-Face” Haley, and loads of other RINOs.  In the words of Bob Dylan, “You ain’t going nowhere.”
  71. 2021 Monday K: Political News III– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, points out the truth that it’s the Democrats who are defunding law enforcement.  (Note- the Dems always tack defense bills or law enforcement bills onto other, extreme lunatic bills which the GOP cannot vote for and then blames the Republicans for doing what the Dems seek to do like defunding the cops.  Meanwhile, Democratic-Socialists are crying that the conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court are laying the groundwork for what they call the ‘devastation to come’ regarding democracy.  Folks, the Supreme Court is standing with the proponents of FREEDOM and FAIR ELECTIONS so stop with the crying and with the attempts at corrupting our elections system.
  72. 2021 Monday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– TC Energy- the company behind the now-canceled Keystone XL Pipeline- is suing the Biden regime over shutting down the project which benefits the peoples of Canada and the United States.  By canceling it, Joe Biden has strengthened Russia, OPEC, and other oil producers while leaving the U.S. dependent upon other nations.  Shame on Joe Biden.  We hope TC Energy wins the lawsuit.
  73. 2021 Monday M: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– A California man is facing federal charges after a truck in which he was transporting a gigantic amount of commercial grade fireworks blew up and injured 17 people.  Elsewhere, CNN reports that over the course of the three-day Fourth of July weekend, more than 400 shootings have occurred in mostly BLUE towns and cities with at least 150 of them being FATAL.  Democrats blame Donald J. Trump for all the violence when in fact, it’s the Democrats corrupt and evil policies causing the violence.  Just look at Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot- she blames Trump and everyone else for the problems besetting her city when in fact, it’s HER.  It’s ‘Frog-Face.’  She is a loser.
  74. 2021 Monday N: Fake News I– The New York Times has come under fire for comparing ‘flag wavers’ to ‘Trump supporters.’  Most Trump supporters are flag wavers but the corrupt, left leaning ‘newspaper of record’ hates the country and hates patriots.  Shame on them.  Why are they even still in business?   Speaking of America-haters, a new poll says that ONLY 36-percent of young Americans are proud of the greatest nation on Earth.  Shame on them.  Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, blasts the ‘Old Grey Lady’ for calling the American flag ‘divisive.’
  75. 2021 Monday O: Economic News– GOP-controlled states are doing extremely well economically and doing so sans the extra unemployment insurance the Biden regime is raining down upon the citizens of BLUE STATES with which to keep them at home and their economies in the doldrums.
  76. 2022 Tuesday:  Everyone knows the drill- stick around to discover the truth along with the rest of us- you will be glad you did…

[i] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

[ii] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012.  You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.

[iii] Sadly, Detective was a short-lived band but one that had the potential to be as legendary as Led Zeppelin, if only Disco was not trashing the airwaves.  You will find their three albums on: (1) Tuesday, 29-July-2014, (2) Thursday, 31-July-2014, and (3) Friday, 01-August-2014.  We hope you will seek them out.

[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] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

[vi] Look for the Clash sometime within the next 5-10 years.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[viii] It should be clear to all interested, well-informed readers that the Democrats could care less about black lives unless, of course, they can use their agonies to accomplish their perverted political goals.  Ask yourselves, why do blacks face murder and mayhem week after week in BLUE cities across the nation?  Why are Planned Parenthood centers predominantly near black and other minority communities?  Because to Democrats, ‘black lives don’t matter.’  Why then do blacks and other minorities continue voting for Democrats?

  68. 2019 Friday: The California state senate passes a bill that is highly unconstitutional, one that would prevent President Donald J. Trump from appearing on either the primary or the November ballot (should he win the nomination) unless he hands his tax records over for scrutiny by his enemies.  This BS bill would not stand.

Trump does a digital town hall from the Lincoln Memorial with Fox News Channel.  Of course, his Democrat enemies blast him for ‘doing it there.’  “Anywhere else other than the Lincoln Memorial” is what they cry and whine but anywhere Trump would have done it would have met the exact same criticisms.

  76. 2021 Monday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– A new report says that Xi Jinping- dictator of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China and possible overlord of the world- has been planning on taking control of the Internet since 2017.  Only President Donald J. Trump stood in his way and look at what happened to the 45th president.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we also learn today that Hunter Biden still maintains a stake in a Chi-Com equity firm.   Also, regarding the Chi-Coms, the United Kingdom announces it’s going to step up the fight against Chi-Com intelligence-gathering operations around the world.  In other news regarding the communist Chinese, as if we don’t have issues with the thugs in Beijing already, it appears that the out-of-control rocket they launched into the atmosphere as part of their space program could come down somewhere in the United States.  That’s the Chi-Coms for you.  Finally, in other foreign/overseas news, Hillary Rodham Clinton says that the ‘Afghan troop pullout will bolster the Taliban and other terrorists.’
  77. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The Biden regime plans on reuniting illegal alien families that have been separated while in custody.  Awesome, Joe, simply awesome.  We say, ‘reunite them in their home countries.’  Meanwhile, people are blasting “Kooky Kamala” Harris over her being given new responsibilities but still cannot find time to visit the U.S.-Mexico border.  WTF?
  78. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says there’s NOTHING free in the Biden regime’s infrastructure plan.  Amen.  Regarding the ‘infrastructure bill,’ Senator Elizabeth Warren, DS-MA, supports the idea of a ‘Democrat-backed infrastructure bill without any Republicans.’   Meanwhile, the Biden regime is raising the annual quota on refugee resettlement from 15,000 under President Donald J. Trump to 62,500.  WTF!  Speaking of the 45th president, he says that the ‘2020 Presidential Election will forever be remembered as the “BIG LIE,” which it most definitely was.
  79. 2021 Monday I: Political News I– A POS Democrat in Lamar County, Texas, Gary O’Connor- chair of the county’s Democratic Party- is facing a barrage of calls demanding his resignation after he referred to Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, as an “Oreo.”  This is a vile form of slander but when it comes from Democrats, seldom do they get in trouble.  This punk needs to go NOW.   Speaking of the Lone Star State, many see the GOP wins as signs of what awaits the Republican Party in 2022.   Speaking of the BIG Texas wins, President Donald J. Trump says that the Dems, NOT the RINOs, are giving him credit for what happened in Texas.  Speaking of RINOs, GOP pundits expect that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out of the party’s leadership by the end of the month.
  80. 2021 Monday J: Political News II–  In Florida, some RINO Republicans are expressing fear over the new voting law designed to halt corruption and fraud.  They fear it could backfire on them, the terrified, trembling milquetoasts.  Oh, boohoo.  Stop sniveling, RINOs.  Next, people are outraged over the new WOKE CIA recruiting video.  Are we hiring the best or are we hiring pansies with weak minds?  How embarrassing.  Next, former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says the ‘voters are fed-up’ with Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov.  In other shocking news, we now learn that Climate Czar John F. Kerry was making BIG BUCKS from fossil fuel investments prior to becoming the ‘climate czar,’ at which time he offloaded them.  What a loser.
  81. 2021 Monday K: Political News III– The U.S. Supreme Court won’t take a Maryland case regarding bump stocks.   Speaking of SCOTUS, Justice Clarence Thomas backs a former West Point cadet’s right to sue the academy over an alleged rape.   Elsewhere, Minnesota state Attorney General Keith Ellison says he is in favor of trying BAD COPS at the International Criminal Court in the Hague.  Meanwhile, it would appear that John McCain’s widow Cindy, is on the side against the Arizona 2020 Presidential Election audit which puts her up against state GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward.  (Note- someone should suggest to Cindy she become a Democrat.  Enough is enough).
  82. 2021 Monday L: Miscellaneous News I– In Chicago over the past weekend, 7 people were shot dead while another 46 were wounded.  Nary a peep in protest to the ongoing mass shootings in the Windy City.   Speaking of guns, the FBI says gun sales are UP for the 16th straight month as people are rushing out to buy guns in advance of all the leftwing riotous thugs roaming the streets.  Good.  We sure the hell are buying guns.  Elsewhere, the judge deciding the NRA bankruptcy case will have a ruling sometime next week.
  83. 2021 Monday M: Miscellaneous News II– Racing champion Bobby Unser, an Indy 500 winner,   and a member of racing family elite, died at the age of 89.  Next, after 27 years of wedded bliss, Bill and Melinda Gates are throwing in the towel.   Elsewhere, the New Jersey Pine Mountain Golf Club has granted full access to women.  Wow.  Kind of late.  Moving on, an appeals court is going to decide a California law regarding trannys participating in scholastic sports.   Next, Intel is going to invest $3.5 billion in a chip-manufacturing plant in New Mexico.  Finally, scientists are breeding sea stars with which to repopulate and rebab the world’s warming oceans.  They are doing this in laboratories.  Uh, okay.
  84. 2022 Tuesday:  Let’s see what is occurring today.  Shall we?

  90. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– North Korea says that the Biden regime’s actions suggest the United States wants war with the Democratic Republic of North Korea.  Joe is taking us backward.   Elsewhere, further west in the scenic countryside of Afghanistan’s eastern Logar province, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ conducted a car bombing that propelled 27 unfortunate souls to the ‘other side’ while leaving many more suffering to one degree or another.  Many of the poor bastards were high school students.  Wow.  The Taliban are now warning of counterattacks on U.S. forces as today was the day for total withdrawal.[xxi]  Meanwhile, regarding the Bat Flu vaccine, Canada is putting a halt on the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to contamination fears at the manufacturing plant.  And the liberals SWEAR that the anxieties of vaccine receivers is what has led to blood clots and other reported problems and NOT the vaccine.  Yeah, right.  We’re with you, Canada.
  91. 2021 Saturday I: Miscellaneous News I– California is trying to get their hands on incarcerated Harvey Weinstein but the extradition request currently in on hold.  He is going nowhere (although we are surprised that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden’s regime has not yet sprung a fellow groper).   Next, the U.S. Army’s investigation into the death of Specialist Vanessa Guillen has determined that she was sexually abused, reported the abuse as she should to her superiors, and that nothing was done about it.  This is beginning to sound like the movie, “A Few Good Men” (1992) because at least 20-plus people at Fort Hood, Texas, are in trouble for this case and several similar other cases.  What is wrong with our military?   Elsewhere, citizens of the Empire State will soon see their electricity bills skyrocket as the last reactor- Indian Point 3- at the nuclear power plant closed today.  What is wrong with people?  Nuclear energy is the safest and cheapest way of creating electricity, but the Green Meanies have everyone terrified of nuclear power plants (thank you, “The China Syndrome” (1979).   Finally, in the era of feeble Joe Biden, both CNN and MSNBC have seen their ratings precipitously fall to the point where WE hope they go broke. 
  92. 2021 Saturday J: Mass Shootings News– In Green Bay, Wisconsin, tonight, people were having an enjoyable time at the Oneida Casino when a gunman strolled in and began blasting the place.  Several people were shot but at press time, the authorities had not yet shared information on the status of the victims.  The cops did get their hands on the shooter, however.  Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, today was a deadly day with two people shot and killed and another dozen shout and wounded.  We await status on these victims, too.  What is it in the era of Joe Biden that shootings are occurring all over the flipping place?  What is it about drooling Joe Biden? 
  93. 2021 Saturday K: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3556 with a $43 million jackpot on the line: 01, 06, 13, 22, 31, and Mega 13.  Out of 136,144 winning tickets, 23 people had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $945 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #842 with a $129 million jackpot up for the taking: 35, 36, 47, 61, 63, and Powerball 03.  Out of 64,388 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,331 apiece.
  94. 2021 Saturday L: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS / LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS- In Chicago, Illinois, today a 28-year-old psychopath- Elijah Rule Hill Prince- attacked a man in the 10500 block of South Emerald Avenue who refused to purchase something the punk said he was selling.  This led to Mr. Prince leaping onto the man, putting him into a chokehold, hitting him in the face with a shovel, biting off chunks of his ears, biting his scalp open, gouging out his eyes including one in which he used a portion of a wooden stake which he then drove into the man’s socket.  As his victim lay gasping for breath, Mr. Prince then spit into his gaping mouth.  The victim’s wife rushed out to help her husband and Mr. Prince then bit off humongous portions of her ears, gouged out her eyes, beat her, and spit on her before ambling away leaving his victims in the street.  The cops eventually found the sociopath, arrested him, and currently he is being held on $5 million bond.  When asked about the blood that was all over him, Mr. Prince said it was the “Blood of peasants.” Folks, this is someone the cops should have shot dead on the spot.  All you anti-cop people out there, stop f**king sniveling.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

118. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 2022

2003 Wednesday: U.S. forces open fire on a group of Iraqi protesters in Fallujah, Iraq, after they began throwing things and making threats. This would be the focal point for the buildup to what would become known as the Battle of Fallujah in 2004, a make-or-break effort in the unnecessary invasion launched by the George W. Bush administration. (Note- we think this is a prime example of the Deep State influencing a president into a war and then when it goes wrong, they abandon them to their fate).

  62. 2012 Sunday: The government of Bashar al-Assad accuses UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon of ‘encouraging attacks on the government.’  Elsewhere, as Chi-Coms scour Beijing searching for blind dissident Chen Guangcheng who fled house arrest and into the streets, rumors are flying that he somehow made his way to the U.S. Embassy where he sought refuge.  Not good for U.S.-Chi-Com relations but it is what it is.

  76. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Joe Biden is sending $310 million to Guatemala to ‘help them’ stem the tide of illegal aliens flowing north through their country to the United States; we’ll see.  Speaking of the border, Customs and Border Patrol reports that last month, the feds took 170,000 illegal aliens into custody.   Elsewhere, the Biden regime-controlled U.S. Department of Justice has quietly repealed Trump era restrictions on the amount of federal aid going to ‘sanctuary cities’ and ‘sanctuary states.’   Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is blasting the Biden regime for NOT permitting him entry into the illegal alien holding pens in Donna, Texas.

Trump.’  Wow).[xxi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘Biden administration (i.e., the regime) displays schizophrenic undertones as it seeks de-escalation and confrontation at the same time.’  Absolutely true.  Next, as the truth continues to hit the presses over Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations in doing business with Iran while a private citizen, Congressman Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that the allegations against ‘Lurch’ appear to be ‘somewhat treasonous.’   Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district says, ‘Kerry MUST resign.’  We concur.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that the U.S. pullout of Afghanistan could lead to a takeover of the country by the Taliban.  Finally, the U.S. sees major rollbacks on the sanctions placed atop Iran so the U.S. can return to the bogus Iran nuclear deal.

  81. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that while the Dems claim to SUPPORT Israel, they put forth a true anti-Semite POS such as Colin Kahl for the No. 3 position at the Pentagon: the undersecretary for policy.  (Note- Mr. Kahl says he will take a bipartisan approach to his job.  Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy- what a guy).  Next, President Donald J. Trump says of Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, that in so many words, she is a ‘LOSER.’   Moving on, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, is trying to save his job by signing a tough abortion bill preventing abortion for genetic abnormalities.   Meanwhile, Congressmen Jeff Duncan, R-SC 3rd congressional district, and Doug Lamborn, R-CO 5th congressional district, are pushing back HARD on the Biden’s regime pushing of the bogus Critical Race Theory which is Critical Race Theory BS.  Good for you gentlemen!  Finally, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘don’t denigrate Arizona’s 2020 Election audit.’  Amen.

Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and removed all of his electronic devices in an early morning raid.  Mr. Giuliani offered to meet with the authorities and to hand over his devices but no, much like they did during the raid on Roger Stone’s home, they wanted to INTIMIDATE the man, trying to tie to him the crimes committed by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine.  Likewise, they also raided the home of Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, two more big Trump supporters and legal eagles.   In other news, as California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to whine and cry over the recall effort against him, one of the recall advisers says that ‘one-third of the signatories are Democrats, one-third are independents, and one-third are Republicans.’  Everyone wants Gavin Newsom OUT of office ASAP.[xxii]   Finally, Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is working with Stephen Miller to defeat Joe Biden’s RACIST policies on equity rather than equality when it comes to providing aid to farmers.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– An alternate juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial says that ‘mob riots, protests, and the racial climate did NOT influence the jury’s decision.’  Sure.  Uh huh, of course not.  Next, following a cop shooting of a black suspect, a North Carolina judge denies a request for the video cam footage.   Next, a video shows that a California man died while the cops were holding him.  Here we go again.   Regarding firearms, a new poll shows that support for heavier gun laws is lacking support among the American people.

  86. 2021 Wednesday P: The Wrap-Up– Amazing to see Joe Biden’s ‘address’ in which, he praised the police, noting most of them are okay.  Here is how socialism works- you grind law enforcement and the military in the dirt, kick them in the teeth, beat them up, purge them, and then when they can take no more, you make a deal: IF you don’t want things to return to the way they were- you being public enemies and all- you will now serve as storm-troopers and go after our enemies.  YOU can do whatever you want to them and without any oversight or parameters.  This is evil- glad I am now in Israel- Mo.  We love and cherish our freedoms… Meanwhile, the three people involved in the death of Ahmaud Arbery have been indicted on hate crimes charges.   A federal grand jury indicted Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan today which is good.  These three crackers have much for which to answer.

  92. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.176 in Florida, $5.256 in Hawaii, and $4.691 in Washington state.[xxx]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Montana- $4.097.  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 30th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Chad: $3.206 per U.S. Gallon.[xxxi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,414,818,869,159 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxxii]  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 Luxembourg the SIXTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil.  This nation holds $258,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  93. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Sensing that Joe Biden is on the verge of mental collapse, Russia once again warned the United States of potential retaliation over America’s asinine sanctions.   Meanwhile, Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, says he ‘witnessed ample signs of Russian war crimes in Ukraine’ during a recent visit to that war-torn country.  Next, reports continue to arise of the Russian navy employing dolphins to guard their Black Sea base at Sebastopol.  This has been tried before but has never proven successful.  Still, with the Russkies, one never knows.
  94. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The Russians have raised rocket and missile attacks on Ukraine once again.  Several blasts rocked Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, today.   The British minister of defense- Ben Wallace- says that ‘Russia could become a cancerous growth in Ukraine.’  Meanwhile, Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax this evening that if Russia were to use tactical nukes in Ukraine, ‘all bets would be off, and the U.S. must put troops on the ground in direct conflict with the Russkies.’  This is becoming more ludicrous by the day.  We cannot fight a land war with Russia in eastern Europe, it’s impossible to do and will lead to the Chi-Coms becoming the world’s master.  Not good.
  95. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been the nation’s ‘border czar’ for the past 391 days and even worse, she has not arrived to do her job in 305 days.  Our estimates of the rising costs associated with rising numbers of illegal aliens continues breaking records every day.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 118 days is $752,442,887.  Next, the cost of caring for the detritus of the world since the Biden-Harris regime grabbed power on January 20, 2021, is $42,498,248,630.  The number of illegal aliens encountered at the border since January 01, 2022, is approximately 1,203,637.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 46,635,294.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 95-to-130 million which is unsustainable for any country and must be fixed now.  Deport ALL of them.  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).
  96. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says the southern border is ‘broken because of Joe Biden’s attitude.’  George P. Bush, R-TX, says that the southern border is ‘out of control.’  Next, while testifying before the Congress, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the only solution for solving the border crisis is to give every illegal alien who has swarmed across it amnesty.  Folks, not only this insane, it’s also the kill stroke for the United States.  It’s over, it’s done, it’s finished.  In other border-related news, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is seeking donations with which to bus illegal aliens into Washington, D.C.  While we think this is great, how about finding a way to push them back across the border into Mexico?   Simultaneously, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, is suing the Biden regime over its upcoming plan to lessen border security next month with the overturning of Title 42.  DHS Secretary Mayorkas says he believes there will be 18,000 or more encounters of illegal aliens per day once the pro-American Title 42 ends.  We must fight back against this evil.
  97. 2022 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $50.55 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.22 (3) Novavax: $44.27 (4) Merck & Company: $88.61 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.59  (6) BioNTech: $143.40 (7) Moderna: $142.52.
  98. 2022 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $98.09 (2) Boeing: $154.19 (3) General Dynamics: $242.20 (4) Lockheed Martin: $441.69 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $445.17.
  99. 2022 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.22 (2) DuPont: $67.58 (3) 3M: $147.21 (4) Honeywell: $189.92  (5) Teijen: $1,388.00.
  100. 2022 Thursday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.06 (2) Beyond Meat: $39.82  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $69.55.
  101. 2022 Thursday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $156.21 (2) Lowe’s: $205.13 (3) Home Depot: $312.04 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $562.00 (5) Amazon: $2,891.93.
  102. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden endorsed a new bill that will funnel assets seized from Russian oligarchs to Ukraine.  Joe also asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in aid for Ukraine which means the Biden regime will most likely skim off 12-20-percent for the Biden Family’s coffers.
  103. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll pulls NO punches and says that a large majority of Americans blame Joe Biden for skyrocketing gas prices.   In other disastrous news for the Biden regime, the Chi-Coms and Iran are going to increase their mutual defense pact.  This is a direct slap in the face of slobbering Joe Biden.  In yet another problem for the feeble U.S. ‘president’- one who could not speak today at a ‘press conference’ of sorts without going totally BLANK in his thoughts, words, and speech- parental rights groups are pushing back with growing force over Joe’s suggestion that children do not belong to their parents but to the regime.  George Orwell could not have foretold the topics of his classic novel, “1984,” than what we are seeing today.
  104. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– President Ron Klain, uh, excuse me, President Joe Biden, continues dangling the bait that the Biden regime could cancel all CURRENT student debt but not over $50,000.  Alas, it must be an election year for this carrot of the carrot of ‘reparations for slavery’ to be dangling in front of the young, dumb, and full of c*m voters.  Should Joe Biden cancel student loan debt, he will alienate all those who have struggled to pay their loans off who by far outnumber those who have not.
  105. 2022 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The House select committee investigating (yeah, right) the FALSE FLAG EVENTS of January 06, 2021, announce their plan to hold at least eight public hearings, beginning in June, in the hope of somehow influencing the voters to vote ‘D’ on their ballots in November.  We suspect their ratings will be at the bottom of the crapper.  We also suspect the American people will become even more infuriated with the regime and its allies than they are now and if- we repeat- IF- the elections are honest, the Dems are going to go the way of the dinosaur.
  106. 2022 Thursday S: Big Tech News– CNN + threw in the towel today, two full days ahead of the scheduled shutdown on April 30, 2022.

[iii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

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

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

108. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2022

2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election. The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’ Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See! See! The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’ Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…

  61. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low-cost foreign workers. 
  62. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  63. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  64. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Saturday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former 72nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul H. O’Neill died at age 84.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, to December 31, 2002.

  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 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.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  68. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 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., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

  72. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS– in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I– Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously, and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021, and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  76. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III– Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin, which is not right, but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  77. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I– Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in an advantageous position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  78. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  79. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.

[i] This is the TRUE government of China, Nationalist China which is FREE China.  Although these people inhabit Taiwan, the former island of Formosa, they are the true owners of mainland China, too, and the sooner they reclaim their birthright, the sooner the world will heal.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.

[iv] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[v] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

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

[viii] Not sure when we will begin celebrating the music of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts but when we do…you will be among the first to know.

[ix] As to when we will celebrate the life, times, and music of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, we haven’t a clue so stay alert for the day we finally do.

[x] We doubt we will ever do the music of Green Day.

[xi] We hope to celebrate the music of Bill Withers one day.  Please stay alert for when that day arrives.  You will be glad you did.

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

104. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  50. 2002 Sunday: Dictator and thug Hugo Chavez returns to power in Venezuela.  Many people will pay the price for his return.  The people of Venezuela tried to depose this POS, but enough scumbags rallied to his side to save him and put him back in power.
  51. 2003 Monday: It sucks to be a terrorist: in Baghdad, U.S. troops capture a Palestinian POS, Abu Abbas, a man responsible for murdering an American on the cruise ship Achille Lauro, sailing in the Mediterranean when it was commandeered by jihadists.  The scum threw disabled passenger Leon Klinghoffer overboard in his wheelchair.  Brave scumbag.  Hang him.  Elsewhere, near Richmond, California, the headless body of a female and a fetus with the umbilical cord still attached wash up on the shore.  Law enforcement officers test the body for DNA and learn that the remains are those of Laci Peterson and her unborn baby who have been missing from their Modesto, California, home since December 24, 2002.  This would bode ill for her husband and the baby’s father, Scott Peterson.
  52. 2004 Wednesday: In a historic policy shift, President George W. Bush endorsed Israel’s plan to hold on to part of the West Bank in any final peace settlement with the Palestinians.  He also ruled out Palestinian refugees returning to Israel, bringing strong criticism from the scumbag Palestinians.
  53. 2005 Thursday: Near the Palestinian town of Nablus, Israeli troops whack a member of the terrorist group, Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, who was preparing to launch an attack into Israel.  Israeli officials placed blame for the incident squarely atop the shoulders of the Palestinian garbage running the show in Gaza City.  These people are all jihadists and jihadists must be whacked wherever discovered.  Excellent work, Israel!
  54. 2006 Friday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad meeting with Hamas officials at a conference on Palestinian statehood blasts the Israeli government as being a dying, rotten tree, one that will disappear with the first storm.’  Israel is still there, and Ahmadinejad is full of fecal matter.  Elsewhere, Chad severs ties with the Sudan after Islamist rebels from Chad carry out an attack within their own country, killing at least 350 people and wounding countless others.  Chad points the finger of blame directly at Khartoum which remains mum.
  55. 2007 Saturday: Not that it did any good, 200,000 people take to the streets in Ankara, Turkey, protesting against the possible candidacy of want-to-be dictator for life, incumbent Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  The POS is still there in 2020.   
  56. 2008 Monday: Delta Airlines Incorporation and Northwest Airlines Corporation announced they were merging.   Elsewhere, the U.S. is beginning to occupy its brand-spanking new $736 billion embassy in Baghdad, Iraq.  The facility is about the size of the Vatican City and can reportedly withstand any assault by terrorists.  We shall see.   Meanwhile, the World Food Bank announces a plethora of new emergency measures with which to combat the rising costs of food prices.  People in the developing world are running amok in the streets, having food riots, attacking stores and warehouses.  It’s getting ugly out there.
  57. 2009 Tuesday: In a big day for Somali pirates, the scum seize four ships taking 60 hostages.  Elsewhere, North Korea said it was restarting its rogue nuclear program (what else is new?), booting U.N. inspectors and pulling out of disarmament talks in an angry reaction to U.N. Security Councils condemnation of its April 15 rocket launch.
  58. 2010 Wednesday: The Vatican finds itself in the hotseat when a top cardinal within the church links homosexuality with pedophilia in discussions over the recent wave of sex scandals threatening the institution.  You know, if the shoe fits; still, whether the Roman Catholic Church knows it or not, everyone is beginning to get WOKE.  Some things you can say and others you can’t and what the cardinal said is one of the bad ones…in other news, whispers are coming out of the White House that President Barack Hussein Obama is going to debut a new plan with which to send American astronauts to Mars.  Supposedly, this will occur tomorrow.  The funny thing is that NOT long after he became president, he scrapped NASA’s plans for returning astronauts to the moon.  He wanted the money for his bogus social re-engineering programs.
  59. 2011 Thursday: President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy publish an op-ed in a global newspaper- International Herald Tribune– in which the three leaders share their vision on how best to end the Libyan Civil War, one these guys sort of had a hand in starting and now like George W. Bush and his ill-fated Iraq War 2003, once they broke it, they own it.
  60. 2012 Saturday: The U.S., Russia, and China begin talks on Iran’s nuclear program.  Elsewhere, South Korean naval vessels search the Yellow Sea on the lookout for a failed North Korean missile test which went down into the ocean shortly after launch.
  61. 2013 Sunday: In anticipation of Croatia becoming a full-fledged member of the European Union, the nation selects its first MPs through an election.   Elsewhere, following the death of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez (died March 05), Venezuelans go to the polls for a snap presidential election.   Meanwhile, South Korean continues putting out feelers to its counterparts in the North which are rebuffed yet again.  Light ‘em up, civilized world, light those North Koreans up.  
  62. 2014 Monday: According to Brainy History, the Washington Post and The Guardian win the Pulitzer Prize for reporting of surveillance programs by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA); the investigations relied on thousands of documents leaked by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor.  Elsewhere, folks waiting at a bus station outside the Nigerian capital city of Abuja have a horrible day when twin bombings occur.  According to Al Jazeera, at least 71 people are sent to meet their Maker while at least another 120 probably wish they could.  Once again, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.
  63. 2015 Tuesday: President Barack Hussein Obama meets with Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi to discuss the ongoing fight against the Islamic State.  The American president says he will send the nation ‘humanitarian aid’ but in his usual ‘f**k this’ attitude, will not commit to sending the beleaguered nation military supplies.
  64. 2016 Thursday: Palestinians are always causing trouble and today is no different.  In Jerusalem, Israeli law enforcement catch two Palestinian 12-year-old boys who had an assortment of knives concealed within their clothing.  Off they went to the Hoosegow.  Meanwhile, near Hebron, a Palestinian extremist attacks an Israeli soldier with an axe but who is then shot dead for his troubles.  Piss on them.  Elsewhere, the Chinese announce they are going to prosecute 357 of its citizens for the illegal sale of vaccines.  What kind of vaccines? 
  65. 2017 Friday: Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, already serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder, was acquitted in Boston in a 2012 double-homicide that prosecutors claimed was fueled by his anger over a drink spilled on him at a nightclub.  Five days later, Hernandez supposedly hanged himself in his prison cell.   Elsewhere, European vessels plying the waters off of the Libyan coast come upon another floundering load of Sub-Saharan African ‘migrants’ and yank 2,000 of them out of the water.  
  66. 2018 Saturday: Terrorists attack an Egyptian army outpost in the Sinai today killing several soldiers.  At least 12-14 jihadis ran amok, four of them detonating suicide vests as they grappled with the soldiers.  At least 8 Egyptian soldiers lost their lives in the skirmish.  Further north, problems continue along the border between Israel and Gaza.  A visiting delegation of Egyptian leaders encourage the Palestinians to call off their ‘Great March of Return.’  This event witnesses Hamas sending out cannon fodder to engage with the Israeli Defense Forces so people can get killed and Hamas can then point fingers at Israel.  We say, stop giving the Palestinians money.  Period.
  67. 2019 Sunday: Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a woman with numerous problems, finds herself at the center of controversy yet again after comments made at a 9/11 speech come to light in which, she tries to cover up the role of Islam in bringing down the Twin Towers.  President Donald J. Trump hammers the skank while- shock of shocks- Nancy Pelosi rushes to her defense.  Boot both women out of Congress.
  68. 2020 Tuesday: Today, former President Barack Hussein Obama endorsed his former vice president, “Pro-China Joe” Biden for the 2020 presidential nomination of the Democratic Party.  He did so via social media.  Mr. Obama joins the Chinese taskmasters running the Biden campaign in selecting the ‘right man for the job’ should he win in November (which he won’t).  Meanwhile, the Kung Flu- aka COVID-19, aka coronavirus, aka Wuhan Virus, aka Wuhan Flu, aka Wuhan Virus Crisis- continues claiming lives and causing economic destruction wherever it occurs.  Current statistics show a total of 1,968,943 confirmed cases with 123,783 confirmed deaths and 464,135 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have a total (at the time of this update) 598,737 confirmed cases what with 24,770 confirmed deaths and 38,015 confirmed recoveries.  We must thank our Chinese ‘friends’ for giving us the gift that won’t stop giving.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China, thank you.
  69. 2020 Tuesday A: As of this evening, the world has 1,981,239 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus Crisis what with 126,681 confirmed deaths and 486,622 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, 614,416 confirmed cases and 29,897 confirmed deaths and 48,036 confirmed recoveries.  Now, get this, the People’s Republic of China claims to have 84,393 confirmed cases, 3.342 deaths and 78,877 confirmed recoveries.  Amazing is it not?  The U.S. State Department estimates that in truth, at least 2.2 million to 2.5 million fatalities connected to this lab-engineered, diabolical virus and yet, they claim it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announces that he will put a hold on the money the United States gives to the World Health Organization.  About time, Mr. President, about time.  How about putting an American into the place of Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus?  That makes more sense than having a Third World toady for China in the gig.
  70. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 137,847,272 confirmed cases, +1,000,476, 2,965,199  confirmed deaths, +16,103, and 78,548,136 confirmed recoveries, +612,509.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,608,413 confirmed cases, UP 165,799 from yesterday’s reporting, 569,556 confirmed deaths, UP 1,662, and 119,010,784 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.

  72. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,706,728 confirmed cases, 60,507 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,141,686 confirmed cases, 34,164 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,175 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 381,537 confirmed cases, 5,391 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Utah, the home of a bunch of rebellious Mormons who dressed up like Native Americans and attacked settlers on the Oregon Trail: they have 391,177 confirmed cases, 2,161 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii]

  77. 2021 Wednesday G: WASHINGTON, D.C. STATEHOOD– a recent poll says that of all 50 states and Washington, D.C., the latter is viewed as the absolute worst place to live and work.  Speaking of statehood, 22 Republican state attorney-generals are suing the Biden administration saying that statehood for the nation’s capital is unconstitutional which it is.  The nation’s capital was meant to be an independent federal district.  Perhaps they should return the real estate given to the district by the surrounding states back to the donors.  There.  Problem solved.  They can pay taxes to the states.  Ah, well, the House Oversight Committee is going to vote on a bill- H.R. 51- authorizing D.C. statehood later in the week.  Still, Democrats are facing cries of “HYPOCRISY” over the court-packing scheme seeing as how they were against it before they were for it. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday H: JOE BIDEN NEWS I– The ‘Biden administration’ is pushing to protect the nation’s power grid as hacking efforts intensify.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she of the pendulous breasts that droop down past her waistline, has invited bewildered old Joe Biden to address a joint session of Congress on April 28.  This we got to see!   Meanwhile, critics lambasting Joe Biden’s SCOTUS commission on packing the court could favor adding additional left-wing justices to an already inept court thanks to the commission being one-sided.  (Note- we suspected this from the start).  Next, Joe Biden says that ALL U.S. troops will be out of Afghanistan, not by May 1, 2021, as President Donald J. Trump planned but on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001: September 11, 2021.[xv]  However, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns is pushing back on this announcement.[xvi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: CRIME AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE NEWS– The judge in the Derek Chauvin murder trial today refused a motion to dismiss the case.  Meanwhile, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, Police Officer Kim Potter was arrested today and charged with second degree manslaughter in the accidental shooting death of thug Duante Wright.  Police in the city also had to put barricades around her family’s home seeing as how rioting has been ongoing there now for three days.  Last night, law enforcement arrested another 60 people rioting and running amok in the streets.  We say, “Shoot them and re-establish law and order in your city.”   In other criminal justice news, Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff died in federal prison at age 83.  In doing so, he was able to beat serving his 150-year prison sentence.  C’ est la vie.  Finally, as the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin continues, a defense expert testifies that Mr. Floyd did not die from Officer Chauvin’s actions but from a heart rhythm problem.  (Interesting note- a report says that NYPD officers stood by as four MS-13 gangbangers loaded a dead body into the trunk of their vehicle).
  80. 2021 Wednesday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, has put forth a Trump-like bill, the “Red Tape Reduction Act,” a bill that would seek to cut regulations and rules.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Julia Letlow, R-LA 5th congressional district, put her hand on the Holy Bible today and took the oath of office as the newest member of the U.S. House of Representatives.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is continuing with Florida’s lawsuit against the Joe Biden regime over its crazy Immigrations and Customs Enforcement policies.  Illegal aliens MUST GO!  Speaking of the border, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is supposed to visit Mexico and Guatemala within the next ‘several weeks.’  Uh, okay, we have a CATASTROPHE on our southern border there, phony VP.  Finally, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer plans to move forward with the Biden administration’s infrastructure bill early next week, the one that will cost more than $2 trillion, money mostly borrowed from communist China.  (Note- Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says that “Cryin’ Chuck” is not reaching out to Republican lawmakers for their input.  Say what?)
  81. 2021 Wednesday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Capitol Hill officer who shot and killed 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt during the January 06, 2021, FALSE FLAG operation, aka the infamous Capitol Hill Riots- of that ill-fated day will face NO charges whatsoever even though film makes it clear there was no reason for such an incident to have occurred.  Good to have friends in high places, folks.  Next, major U.S. corporations are all banding together to thwart the new voting laws seeking to infuse more honesty and openness into the laws so that what happened on November 03, 2020, does not occur again; namely, stealing a presidential election and giving it to a horrible candidate, creepy old Joe Biden.  Elsewhere, several GOP senators are seeking to strip Major League Baseball of its anti-trust protections.  Kick MLB to the curb.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– The Biden administration is going to honor the terms of the deal made by President Donald J. Trump and the United Arab Emirates.  The sale of advanced U.S. warplanes will proceed.   Next, the U.S. Senate votes 53-45 to confirm Gary Gensler as the next head of Securities and Exchange Commission.  Meanwhile, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that Joe Biden is swiftly moving illegal aliens apprehended along the southern border and is moving them into the heartland of the country.  There is NO vetting, NO testing for diseases, NO background checks for criminal activity, and thus Old Joe is fueling the demise for the country at a later date.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV– The Democrats are preparing to release a new plan with which to expand the U.S. Supreme Court from nine seats to 13.  This is indeed ‘packing the courts,’ something Joe Biden swore upon the head of Satan (just kidding) he would NEVER do.  Congressman Ted Budd, R-NC 13th congressional district, says a constitutional amendment is required with which to fix the number of justices at nine.  Meanwhile, Congressman Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Major League Baseball is punishing the people it claims to be helping.’  Next, the Dems have another plan, one into which they will pour another $50 billion to eradicate student loan debt.  This will wipe out the debt for 36 million of our fellow Americans.  Good.  Elsewhere, former President George W. Bush laments that he did not pass comprehensive immigration reform when HE was president.  How about enforcing the laws? 
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– “Bachelor” star Colton Underwood comes as gay.  Big whoop.  Next, Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl are working on an anthem for the COVID-19 era.  Meanwhile, Parler says that Amazon is throwing mud at them by claiming they are doing everything they can to cover up ownership.   Speaking of Amazon, they are pledging to promote more women and blacks.  Elsewhere, the state of Arizona is revamping sex-ed rules in the wake of all the LGBTQIA+ bulls**t being forced down the throats of American students.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II–  We learn that $174 billion of the infrastructure bill proposed by President Joe Biden is going to the Chinese.  We need them to mine and manufacture rare earth minerals so we can drive electric cars.  Good going, Joe.  Next, Stephen Miller says that “America First Legal” is aiding the states in suing the Biden administration.  Moving on, a new department of the U.S. Treasury will oversee COVID-19 relief.  Boy, talk about a major slush fund for the Left!   Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, tells Newsmax that IF Trump runs in 2024, he will be the nominee.   Next, Joe Biden- never one to pander- is appointing a liaison to the American Asian-Pacific Islanders community seeing as how black Democrats are attacking Asian Democrats.  Someone has to help make nice.  Erika Moritsugu will get the gig.  Finally, experts say (and they are right) that California is not prepared for another catastrophic fire season.  True, absolutely true, thanks to liberal mismanagement and inattention.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– the United States and Germany are warning Russia to pull back from Ukraine’s borders.  The Biden administration plans to slap new sanctions atop Vladimir Putin and the Russian government.  Let’s see what that does.  Meanwhile, experts say that thanks to U.S. stupidity, we have built the Chi-Com military for them via the lopsided trade disparities as well as permitting to steal everything they can get their thieving hands on.  Wow.
  87. 2021 Wednesday Q: LOTTERY RESULTS–  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3551: 07, 10, 20, 28, 33, and Mega 15.  Out of 114,696 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers BUT NO Mega for a prize of $10,170 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Foremost Liquor, South Pasadena, CA 91030 (2) United Oil, Ontario, CA 91761 (3) Cig Zone, Indio, CA 92201 and (4) Bonfare Market, San Jose, CA 95135.   Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #837: 13, 30, 33, 45, 61, and Power 14.  Out of 46,599 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball $5,142 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 565,609 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.

  94. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Governor Greg Abbott is hammering out agreements with various Mexican state governors to stop the flow of the Biden-Harris illegals into the Lone Star State.  If the Mexican governors fail to provide security along their shared borders, every single vehicle crossing the border heading north will be stopped and inspected.  Billions of dollars of revenues will be lost which hopefully will propel the governors to doing the right thing.  IF the Biden-Harris regime won’t do the job, Texas will.  Hopefully, Arizona and New Mexico will follow suit leaving California to bear the brunt of illegal aliens alone. Okay, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is a shocking $662,179,656.  The cost of caring for them since these two losers took charge is $42,408,255,399.  Wow.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since January 01, 2022, is in our estimation 1,057,658.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is 46,479,144. We believe the number of illegals is closer to 85-to-100 million which is a detestable number.  Round ‘em up, imprison them, and then deport them after they work off their transgressions. (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).
  95. 2022 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Finland and Sweden are seeking fast-track membership in NATO which has led the tottering Putin regime in Russia to threaten a build-up of its nuclear forces if the two neutral nations become the newest members of NATO.  In more unwelcome news for Russia, however, Ukraine sank Russia’s Black Sea flagship- the Moskva– with a land-to-sea missile.  Belching smoke and flames, the vessel went to the bottom with sailors leaping into the sea.  In an attempt to cover up the disaster, Moscow claimed sailors smoking cigarettes somehow sank the ship- which, if true- is worse than the ship being sunk via a missile.  What can go wrong for the Putin regime next?  We suspect that the military and intelligence leadership is NOT going to permit much more of these disasters to continue.  President Putin had better keep his back to the wall at all times; otherwise, someone is going to come up behind him and cap him.  It’s what Russians do.  (Note- this is so reminiscent of the Winter War of 1939- the Finns beat the living crap out of the Russians).

  101. 2022 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I- Information continues to arise linking the FBI not only to the events of January 06, 2021, but to the ‘plot’ to kidnap one of America’s absolute worst governors, Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI.  Last week, virtually everyone charged by the feds was either acquitted or had a mistrial which blows the government’s case out of the water.  Julie Kelly reports that regarding January 06, 2021, i.e., the INSURRECTION, there were more than 1,000 FBI agents, informants, and/or stooges in the crowd inciting the ensuing mayhem.  This is disturbing and the FBI must undergo a massive purification to remove the leftist losers causing inner rot within the once proud organization.  Our advice to anyone faced with an interview with the FBI: ask for a lawyer and then go silent.  Period.   Remember: the few remaining good apples are tainted by the multitudes of bad ones.
  102. 2022 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II- Apparently, the Biden White House is struggling with how much information to provide the Ukrainians.   Next, the Biden White House indicts a Russian legislator and two aides operating in the U.S. whom they claim are running an anti-Ukrainian propaganda site in the U.S.  Next, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns says, ‘don’t count out Russia using nukes in Ukraine.’  Good to know.   Next, the Biden regime is preparing a crackdown on those seeking to evade regime-imposed sanctions on Russia.  Good to know, too.
  103. 2022 Thursday M: Political News I- A new poll says that a large majority of Americans do not believe gun control will stop mass shootings.   Next, BIG DEMOCRAT DONOR from Los Angeles, California, the disgusting Ed Buck- longtime close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Obamas– has received 30 years for his crack-induced overdose deaths of young black men he enticed into his home to have sex with him.  Good riddance to a POS.   Another close friend of the Clintons- attorney Michael Sussman- watched his request for his Russia-collusion scam case to be dropped- swatted aside.  The Durham investigation is going to go after this scumbag on the ladder up to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  104. 2022 Thursday N: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News- Pro-Death proponents in Florida are going insane what with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis signing into law a bill banning ALL abortions after 15 weeks.  Whatever happened to birth control, i.e., ‘the pill?’  It used to be everyone sought to prevent pregnancy rather than to murder the outcome of a pregnancy.  Something is wrong in a country when it murders its unborn and seeks to replace the mass genocide of its young people with illegal aliens.  (Note- I am so glad I now live abroad.  Israel values ALL life, not just those that are ‘convenient’).
  105. 2022 Thursday O: Big Tech News- Elon Musk has put up a $43 billion bid with which to buy Twitter and put it back on the path towards FREE SPEECH.  Of course, the left in America and around the world is going bonkers.  Who knows?  Maybe Elon will launch a hostile takeover of Meta-Facebook.  Now that would be something.  Time to round up all these tech moguls and send them to Devil’s Island for all the harm they’ve caused the world.
  106. 2022 Thursday P: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.

Bush in pieces.
  54. 2002 Thursday: An attempted coup d’état takes place in Venezuela against thug president Hugo Chavez. More than half-a-million angry, pissed off Venezuelans marching through the streets.  You people should have overthrown this thug when you had the opportunity.
  55. 2003 Friday: U.S. troops begin rolling into Mosul, Iraq, on this date encountering minimal resistance.  Once the ‘shock and awe’ of U.S. hammer blows on Iraqi forces became overwhelming, many units began moving into the Round 2 strategy of melting into the population and initiating a guerilla war against the Coalition forces.  This would go on for several years.  Violent, bloody, and damned depressing.
  56. 2004 Sunday: It’s Easter Sunday and President George W. Bush is visiting U.S. troops at a base in Iraq, one that’s been hit hard by fighting and attacks.  The president acknowledges it’s been a harrowing week and professes NO idea as to when things might improve.  We probably should not have invaded the country, President Bush, it was a BIG FLIPPING mistake.  Still, we broke it, it’s ours.
  57. 2005 Monday: Hezbollah sends several drones into Israeli airspace, claiming to be conducting reconnaissance over the world’s only Jewish state in response to some border problems between Lebanon and Israel.  The Israeli Air Force takes to the skies and conducts numerous low-level air penetrations all across southern Lebanon.  The Hezbollah rats scurry back into their sewers.
  58. 2006 Tuesday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announces that Iran has successfully enriched uranium.  Elsewhere, terror befalls tens of thousands of revelers celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad as a suicide bomber sets off a device that blows 47 to meet the Prophet sooner than they planned and injures another 85-90 people.  What the hell is wrong with these people? 
  59. 2007 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate is considering a bill with which to allow more scientific research on stem cells.  However, President George W. Bush threatens a veto as he should.  Meanwhile, the chair of the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee (and presidential candidate) Joseph R. Biden says he backs the idea of using force in Darfur.  What is it about these Deep Staters who want to involve the United States in wars across the planet?  Enough is enough.  We are tied down in Iraq and Afghanistan.
  60. 2008 Friday: Somali pirates operating in the Gulf of Aden (goes on year after year) release 30 hostages captured aboard a French luxury yacht plying the area.  Folks, who the f**k wants to take a scenic trip through ‘pirate alley?’ (We heard once that the Saudis were considering filling a yacht with people who wanted to light the pirates up just for sport.  Now that is a boat upon which, we would love to sail!).
  61. 2009 Saturday: In the Gulf of Aden, the French navy does battle with Somali pirates who captured a yacht.  The sailors kill several of the thugs, rout the rest, and recover at least four hostages.  We believe it’s time for world powers to join forces and wipe out this scourge of scumbags.  This is the 21st century, folks.
  62. 2010 Sunday: Tehran announces that the Iranians will participate in the upcoming Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty talks in New York.  Of course, they are going to say and do anything necessary for them to continue keeping their nuclear weapons program a clandestine one.  Elsewhere, Poles around the world are commencing a week of mourning their leader, President Lech Kaczynski, who died along with several others in a mysterious plane crash outside Smolensk, Russia.
  63. 2011 Monday: In France, a law banning the wearing of the burqa and the hijab goes into effect on this day—screw the Muslims!  In Egypt in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, protesters demanding ousted President Hosni Mubarak face charges for all kinds of crimes and who were lit up the day before are back demanding all sorts of reforms be instituted to make the country more ‘Islamic.’
  64. 2012 Wednesday:  The North Korean Workers Party names Kin Jong Un First Secretary, with his father, Kim Jong IL as the party’s “eternal” General Secretary.  Elsewhere, rescuers reach nine trapped miners in a collapses copper mine in the southern part of Peru.
  65. 2013 Thursday: Malawi President Joyce Banda accuses singer Madonna of ‘bullying state officials’ after exaggerating the contributions of her charity and complaining about her treatment during a recent visit to the country.  Elsewhere, Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan’s offer of amnesty for Boko Haram thugs- if they’d straighten up and stop murdering and abducting people- is rejected by the terrorist group.
  66. 2014 Friday: Budget director Sylvia Mathews Burwell is nominated to replace Kathleen Sibelius as U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services.  Meanwhile, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducts Cat Stevens[iii], Nirvana[iv], KISS[v], Hall & Oates[vi], Linda Ronstadt[vii], and Peter Gabriel[viii] on this date.  Meanwhile, as Muslims and Christians kill one another in the Central African Republic, the United Nations agrees to send 12,000 blue helmets to keep the two groups from continuing the bloodshed.
  67. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, U.S. President Barack Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro meet at the Summit of the Americas in Panama for talks aimed at thawing relations; the historic meeting marks the first interaction in decades between top leaders of the two nations.  President Obama loves communists, and he loves jihadists, especially Shiite ones.
  68. 2016 Monday: In war-torn Yemen, a U.N.-backed ceasefire goes into effect between Saudi Arabia and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.  Elsewhere, Goldman Sachs, seen as one of the big causes of the 2008 fiscal crisis that conveniently helped Barack Hussein Obama win the White House reached a settlement with the federal government for having sold ‘derivatives,’ packages of mortgages that contained numerous dogs which when everything went to hell took the entire economy down with it.  Anyhow, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $5.06 billion to settle all claims.
  69. 2017 Tuesday: Famed rock-and-roll guitarist and co-leader of the J. Geils’ Band[ix], John J. Geils, died from natural causes on this date in Groton, Massachusetts, at age 71.  Elsewhere, as U.S. Navy assets approach the two Koreas, Kim Jong Un goes to the microphone banks to address his people (as well as the world) and threatens WAR with the United States if they don’t pull their forces back.  Elsewhere, a U.S. airstrike goes awry in Syria as American jets seeking to light up a bunch of ISIS scumbags instead kills 18 allied Syrian Democratic Forces troops.
  70. 2018 Wednesday: The Palestinians are upset that Israeli troops and a sniper who took out a Hamas thug got off without being in trouble.  Thus, they set off a bomb near some Israeli construction equipment which then leads the Israeli Defense Forces to light up some Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, other trouble-makers in the region- the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels- launch some rockets into Saudi Arabia one of which shows up in the skies over Riyadh but is taken down by Saudi air force jets.
  71. 2019 Thursday: Today, things ended for Julian Assange as British police forcibly removed him from the Ecuadoran embassy in London.   The United States wants him extradited so he can stand charges for his role in Wikileaks releasing loads of secret Iraq war documents.  Elsewhere, the son of a local sheriff in the great state of Louisiana undergoes arrest for having committed several acts of arson against historically black churches in the state.  Holden Matthews would eventually receive a sentence of 25 years in a federal prison with hate crimes attached.  POS.
  72. 2019 Thursday A: The 6.1st Acting U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan assumed office on this date.  He would serve under President Donald J. Trump from today until November 13, 2019.
  73. 2020 Saturday: The day before Easter Sunday, Christian churches around the United States are under statewide and local orders NOT to perform services thanks to the despicable virus engineered in communist China and dispatched around the world.  Around the world, there are 1,684,833 confirmed cases of the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with 102,136 confirmed deaths and 375,499 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, Americans continue suffering thanks to our ‘friends’ in the People’s Republic of China what with 530,463 confirmed cases, 20,499 confirmed deaths, and 31,340 confirmed recoveries.  In order to fight this malignant plague, the Democratic Party wants to coopt the nation’s election systems and have everyone vote by mail.  What?
  74. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 135,869,704 confirmed cases, +839,540, 2,935,271  confirmed deaths, +14,734, and 77,284,566 confirmed recoveries, +508,538.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,397,113 confirmed cases, UP 48,882 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,591 confirmed deaths, UP 449, and 119,003,025 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.[x] 
  75. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 239,048 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.  
  76. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,696,791 confirmed cases, 60,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,124,233 confirmed cases, 34,021 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 30,956 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 377,979 confirmed cases, 5,373 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Oklahoma, home of the late great Bass Reeves, the true Lone Ranger: they have 442,805 confirmed cases, 6,691 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[xi] 
  77. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 835,933 confirmed cases, 6,296 confirmed deaths, and 825,579 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Kazakhstan, yet another loyal client state of Russia: 320,881 cases of the virus, 3,267 confirmed deaths and 284,034 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  79. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE 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 $3.932 per gallon, $2.839 in Florida, $3.725 in Hawaii, and $3.336 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.708.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,160,214,670,182 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  80. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 499,644,267 confirmed cases, +458,572, 6,205,518 confirmed deaths, +2,146 and 449,418,898 confirmed recoveries, +703,516.

  81. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 563,134 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 198,469 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 446 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  82. 2022 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: 9,133,348 confirmed cases, 89,498 confirmed deaths, and 8,881,898 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,911,882 confirmed cases, 73,583 confirmed deaths, and 5,796,163 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 241,972 confirmed cases, 1,382 confirmed deaths, and 236,602 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,467,059 confirmed cases, 12,566 confirmed deaths, and 1,429,877 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Montana: they have 272,919 confirmed cases, 3,255 confirmed deaths, and 269,320 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]   
  83. 2022 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,006,177 confirmed cases, 10,591 confirmed deaths, and 3,941,841 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Barth, 209th place on the list: 4,313 cases of the virus, 6 confirmed death and 4,307 confirmed recoveries.[xix]                         
  84. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,308.08, DOWN 413.04 points (-1.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,411.96 DOWN 299.04 points (-2.18%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,412.53, DOWN 75.75 points (-1.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $95.10 per barrel, +0.81 (+0.86%).  The price of GOLD is $1,956.10 per troy oz., +7.90 (+0.41%) while the price of SILVER is $25.23 per troy ounce, +0.24 (+0.97%).  The price of PLATINUM is $981.20 per troy oz, +3.40 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $4.63 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[xx]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,448.73 per troy oz., +16.56 (+0.68%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,900.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.53%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,180,000.00 per CNY/T, -30,000.00 (-2.48%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,229.00 per USD/T, -145.50 (-4.31%). The price of ZINC is $4,320.00 per USD/T., +65.50 (+1.54%).   The price of COCOA is $2,616.00 per USD/T, -4.00 (-0.15%).  The price of COFFEE is $236.60 per USD/T, +4.95 (+2.14%).  The price of LUMBER is $886.30 USD 1,000 board feet -63.60 (-6.70%).[xxi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 19.92, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 81.00 of theirs.    In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,458.50 and in Jamaican Dollar, a buck equals 153.87 and in Japanese Yen, one dollar equals 125.42 of theirs.[xxii]       
  85. 2022 Monday 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.763 per gallon, $4.072 in Florida, $5.228 in Hawaii, and $4.680 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: District of Columbia- $4.237.  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 13th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Egypt: $1.971 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,378,296,809,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  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 Thailand the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany.  This nation holds $75,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  86. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian troops operating in Ukraine have been nominated for ‘Darwin Awards’ over the idiots removing ‘radioactive souvenirs’ from the Chernobyl power plant in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, Ukrainian military authorities are alleging the Russians have used drones with which to disperse chemical weapons in the beleaguered port city of Mariupol.  Civilian and military authorities are awaiting independent confirmation that the Russians did indeed use chemical weapons.  Speaking of such barbarism, a Chechen leader says that Russian President Vladimir Putin should indeed use tactical nuclear weapons to subdue the Ukrainians.  Still, Moscow claims they have eradicated all of Ukraine’s S-300 missile systems.
  87. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says ‘Russia will not suspend its military operations in Ukraine even as ‘peace talks’ between the two countries are underway.   Meanwhile, although the Russians claim otherwise, the mayor of Mariupol says that at least 10,000 civilians have died during the siege and that when the siege is lifted, the true numbers of dead civilians could double that.  How is it the United Nations is not raising troops from member countries and forcing Russia to stop its malevolent actions in a peaceful country?
  88. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris- California’s shame- has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster for the past 374 days and worse, she has not shown up to do more than a couple hours’ worth of work in 288 days.  What has the country done to deserve a vice president such as her?  Okay, we do our best to continue computing the true costs of illegal immigration on America, the same way that One America News did prior to Direct TV removing them from their list of channels.  Perhaps because we continue promoting the honest-to-God numbers to the best of our abilities, perhaps this is why we find ourselves under assault from some of the biggest search engines.  It is what it is.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders since January 01, 2022, is $642,844,149.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since the undynamic duo took their oaths with which they swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution is $42,388,919,892.  The number of illegals we estimate to have crossed the border since January 20, 2021, is 1,026,488.  Fourth and final, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 45,401,750.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is the prime reason our country is in a state of economic malaise (not to mention liberal policies).[xxvi] (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).
  89. 2022 Monday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $53.97 (2) AstraZeneca: $70.63 (3) Novavax: $57.54 (4) Merck & Company: $86.63 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.88  (6) BioNTech: $170.55 (7) Moderna: $160.00.
  90. 2022 Monday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $102.12 (2) Boeing: $175.04 (3) General Dynamics: $243.55 (4) Lockheed Martin: $464.30 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $462.14.
  91. 2022 Monday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.53 (2) DuPont: $68.48 (3) 3M: $150.12 (4) Honeywell: $189.27  (5) Teijen: $1,312.00.
  92. 2022 Monday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $23.55 (2) Beyond Meat: $43.96  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $67.86.
  93. 2022 Monday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $154.33 (2) Lowe’s: $204.75 (3) Home Depot: $306.89 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $584.67 (5) Amazon: $3,022.44.
  94. 2022 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The White House is preparing for ‘extraordinarily-elevated CPI numbers,’ numbers that are sure to lead massive losses in House and Senate seats in November.  Next, the administration nominates a new commander to lead NATO forward.  Meanwhile, even as COVID-19 numbers continue tanking, the Biden administration is seeking a resumption of forcing EVERY federal worker or contractor to undergo forced vaccination with one of the COVID-19 vaccines.
  95. 2022 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– Although President Joe Biden is going to continue forcing all federal workers to undergo vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccines- and although Dr. Anthony Fauci continues saying the American people are going to have to learn to live with this foul disease, the Pentagon is moving onto the next pandemic, whatever it might be.
  96. 2022 Monday P: Political News I– Law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania arrested an elderly man who was sticking “I DID THAT” stickers onto gasoline pumps.  The stickers featured President Joseph R. Biden pointing to the exorbitant cost of the gas pumped.  Other hilarious stickers featured the nation’s vice president, quoted as saying, “I HELPED.”  While we recognize gas station owners must peel the stickers off- sometimes with difficulty- one cannot sidestep the fact that energy costs are sky high, and that the Biden-Harris administration bears COMPLETE responsibility and not Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.
  97. 2022 Monday Q: Political News II– Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson blasted the White House and its stance on gender affirming/gender reassignment surgeries.  Of course, the White House is a big proponent of life-altering gender surgeries which seems rather devilish to many.  Next, famed economist Peter Navarro says that a ‘perfect storm’ of stagflation is heading our way.   In other news, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush says, ‘it’s right for Governor Greg Abbott to send illegal aliens- what the left euphemistically labels as ‘undocumented migrants- to Washington, D.C., and to other ‘sanctuary locales.’  Finally, in other news Democrat locales would be wise to emulate, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill this morning with which to bolster fatherhood programs across the Sunshine State.
  98. 2022 Monday R: Political News III– Stacey Abrams-backed election law in the Peach State is going to trial.   Meanwhile, in Iowa, a hubbub continues following last night’s ruling by a judge in the state that won’t permit Senator Chuck Grassley’s struggling Democratic challenger- Abby Finkenauer to appear on the state’s Democratic Party primary ballot.  To qualify for the primary ballot, a candidate must have 100 signatures- or more- each from 19 counties to make the grade.  Although the Finkenauer campaign submitted more than 3,500 signatures, she did not get the necessary number to face off against Senator Grassley.  C’ est la vie.  Of the signatures, questions swirled around three of them from two counties.  Go figure.  Stop registering illegal aliens.
  99. 2022 Monday S: Political News IV– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says the White House is being mum on its plans with which to shove portions of the Build Back Better plan through to fruition.  We can only speculate what other evil crap the administration is attempting to insert into this doomed-to-fail bill.  Election Day is fast approaching and contrary to what many progressives are trumpeting, not every Democrat wants to lose his or her seat supporting this crumbling ‘signature package.’
  100. 2022 Monday T: Second Amendment News– The National Rifle Association has slammed President Joseph R. Biden’s new executive orders on the evil ‘ghost guns.’  Since before the founding of the country, Americans have made their own firearms and ammunition and even though President Biden believes he has a winner with this issue, Americans will continue making their own guns and crafting their own ammunition.  It is what free people in a free country do.  We are not communist China yet nor if older Americans continue defending freedom from the new generation of indoctrinated losers, we will continue doing this until the day we die.
  101. 2022 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #974 with a jackpot of $85 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 24, 31, 34, and Power 04.  Out of 62,911 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $33,732.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every artist releases a ‘20th Century Masters,’ i.e., best of compilation, and Robbie Robertson is no different.  We have a collection of the guitarist’s most beloved tunes all in one place so what do you have to lose?  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

84. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 2022, UPDATE A

Watching Joe Biden stumble and bumble overseas is not only a national embarrassment to both the United States and its citizens, but it’s also downright dangerous. The senile idiot is telling assembled U.S. troops what they’re going to see in Ukraine when they go there which to the average listener sounds like, they’re going to war there. Perhaps Putin might consider a pre-emptive nuclear strike to halt such an undertaking? Joe, STFU you half-witted moron…

84. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 2022, UPDATE A:

Maryland Day (Maryland)

Watching Joe Biden stumble and bumble overseas is not only a national embarrassment to both the United States and its citizens, but it’s also downright dangerous.  The senile idiot is telling assembled U.S. troops what they’re going to see in Ukraine when they go there which to the average listener sounds like, they’re going to war there.  Perhaps Putin might consider a pre-emptive nuclear strike to halt such an undertaking?  Joe, STFU you half-witted moron…

  1. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 479,965,820 confirmed cases, +2,348,339, 6,142,930 confirmed deaths, +10,845 and 414,149,836 confirmed recoveries, +1,608,941.

  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 553,745 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 190,690 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 429 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,086,404 confirmed cases, 88,700 confirmed deaths, and 8,652,609 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,885,390 confirmed cases, 73,018 confirmed deaths, and 5,796,690 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 239,591 confirmed cases, 1,373 confirmed deaths, and 238,218 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,451,227 confirmed cases, 12,432 confirmed deaths (BIG ADJUSTMENT DOWN), and 1,438,795 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., South Carolina: they have 1,467,115 confirmed cases, 17,493 confirmed deaths, and 1,299,765 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,835,700 confirmed cases, 10,460 confirmed deaths, and 3,754,540 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Saint Martin, 191st place on the list: 9,912 cases of the virus, 63 confirmed death and 1,399 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,861.24, UP 153.30 points (+0.44%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,169.30 DOWN 22.54 points (-0.16%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,543.06, UP 22.90 points (+0.51%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $112.60 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,957.60 per troy oz., -4.60 (-0.23%) while the price of SILVER is $25.73 per troy ounce, -0.20 (-0.75%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,005.60 per troy oz, -25.60 (-2.48%) while the price of COPPER is $4.69 per pound, -0.05 (-1.11%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,341.19 per troy oz., -181.74 (-7.20%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,500.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.54%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,330,000.00 per CNY/T, -10,000.00 (-0.75%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,605.00 per USD/T, -18.50 (-0.51%). The price of ZINC is $4,061.00 per USD/T., +22.00 (+0.54%).   The price of COCOA is $2,562.00 per USD/T, -21.00 (-0.81%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,008.40 USD 1,000 board feet -11.60 (-1.14%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.91 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.02, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 96.50 of theirs.    In Bolivar Soberano, one greenback equals 4.35 and in Bolivian Boliviano, a buck equals 6.79 and in Bosnia and Herzegovina Convertible Marka, one dollar equals 1.78 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.900 per gallon, $4.122 in Florida, $5.100 in Hawaii, and $4.734 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Virginia- $4.118.  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 163rd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Monaco: $9.439 per U.S. Gallon.[ix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,341,742,840,048 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 Luxembourg the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil.  This nation holds $258,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– A report first available yesterday has been confirmed today: a Russian tank crew ran over their colonel in protest of the invasion of Ukraine and the loss of countless comrades in a fight none of them wanted.   Meanwhile, Ukrainian forces are making gains against the invaders as army troops continue pushing Russian forces back from around Kyiv and launch counterattacks elsewhere to displace the new ‘Red Army’ soldiers.   This has led to Russia scaling back its war aims as they are being defeated on land, sea, and in the air.   In order to spur their second-rate soldiers to fight harder, Moscow claims to have confirmed the presence of U.S. mercenaries on the battlefield.  Russia: didn’t you bring in Chechen and Syrian mercs so what the f**k?
  8. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– In an effort to continue clinging to power- like Joe Biden continues trying to cling to power in the United States- a frustrated President Putin says the ‘West is trying to cancel Russian culture including famed composer Tchaikovsky.’  Oh, boohoo, Vlad, boohoo.  Next, former Vice President Mike Pence, R-IN, says it’s time for a ‘21st century-style Berlin airlift’ to get supplies to Ukraine.   Next, new video confirms Ukrainian claims that their military destroyed a Russian warship- the Orsk tank-landing ship- in the port of Berdyansk.   Elsewhere, new data reports that Russian forces have committed 148 specific war crimes against journalists in Ukraine.
  9. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III– Kyiv announces that in areas in which the Russians are in control are forcing Ukrainian residents into taking Russian language training.   Meanwhile, the Kremlin is reportedly ‘flabbergasted’ over the flight of a close advisor to Russian President Vladimir Putin.  That’s right, Anatoly Chubais, former chairman and CEO of Russian company, Rusnano, fled the country for freer environs.  Watch for Putin’s agents to track him down and give him some Novichok.  It’s what they do.
  10. 2022 Friday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– We know this is depressing, folks, but it’s our duty to lay out the daily count in the life and times of our ‘border czar,’ Vice President Kamala Harris.  Let’s see, she’s been on the job for the past 357 days- although you’d never know it because NO one has seen her.  She hasn’t showed up to do the job in 271 days.  That is so sad.  The cost of caring for the invaders since the first day of this year is around $533,710,556.  Imagine what that money could do for the American people?  It would be amazing.  The cost of caring for the illegals since slobbering Joe Biden has been in office is $42,805,679,799.  That’s a whole lot of wasted tax dollars.  The number of illegals who have entered the U.S. this year alone is in our estimation 860,293.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is estimated to be 45,235,555.  The people we elect to be our leaders do not give a flaming fluck about any of us.  If they did, they would scoop them up and deport all of them ASAP. (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).
  11. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Little Emanuel “Peewee Herman” Macron confirmed that he will be speaking with Russian President Vladimir Putin within the next 48-72 hours over his actions in the siege of Mariupol.’  Wow.  Next, Russian ambassador to Italy- Sergey Razov- is suing the Italian daily newspaper La Stampa after it published an article talking about the killing of Russian President Vladimir Putin.  (Note- Vladimir, don’t be upset- newspapers ran all sorts of ‘hit pieces’ on another dictator, George W. Bush, calling for his death so you have become a member of a very select crowd.  It is what it is).  Finally, here’s a good one: after North Korea conducted some ICBM tests, the Biden regime is asking BOTH communist China AND Russia to send a ‘strong message to Kim Jong Un to behave.’  Please.
  12. 2022 Friday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $52.78 (2) AstraZeneca: $65.13 (3) Novavax: $74.13 (4) Merck & Company: $81.34 (5) BioNTech: $161.10 (6) Johnson & Johnson: $176.92 (7) Moderna: $165.92.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Pfizer: $54.51 (2) AstraZeneca: $63.23 (3) Novavax: $82.30 (4) Merck & Company: $79.11 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $174.84  (6) BioNTech: $174.46 (7) Moderna: $178.93.

  17. 2022 Friday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– While ‘shagging questions’ in Brussels, Belgium, a doddering, drooling Joe Biden became incensed when a reporter asked the faux president if he ‘was up to doing the job.’  Following this event, senile Joe traveled to Poland where he met with U.S. troops which he claimed would soon be witnessing all sorts of things in Ukraine which raises the question, are they going to Ukraine?  He also met with Ukrainian refugees.  Meanwhile, a new AP-NORC poll says that as gasoline prices rise in the U.S., Joe Biden’s approval ratings continue to circle the drain in a filthy crapper.  Poor Joe.  Elsewhere, in other news extremely damaging to the Biden regime in general and ‘Pro-China Joe’ in particular, a new Rasmussen poll says that ‘two-thirds of the American people believe the Hunter Biden laptop story is extremely important.’
  18. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. is canceling talks with the Taliban following the terrorist regime reneging on a promise to keep girls’ schools open for instruction.  Next, the White House rushed to clarify senile Joe’s remarks about ‘U.S. troops going into Ukraine’ by announcing ‘NO U.S. troops will be deployed to Ukraine.’  Former Director of National Security Ric Grenell says that ‘Joe Biden’s gaff demonstrates his weakness.’   In other news, the U.S. has announced plans with which to sanction companies providing tech supplies and support for Russia’s military and intelligence-gathering organizations.  Wow.
  19. 2022 Friday R: Political News I– As the fraudulent January 06, 2021, House ‘select committee’ continues making noises about slapping criminal referrals on both him and Dan Scavino, famed conservative economist and Trump adviser Peter Navarro blasted the J6 Committee’s sham action as an ‘attack on executive privilege.’  Next, the House GOP leadership announces it is preparing plans for a ‘bold, conservative agenda once the GOP reclaims the House in the fall.’  We hope the GOP wins but it would be astounding to see someone other than the RINO House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, 23rd congressional district, installed as the new speaker.   Likewise, if the GOP reclaims the Senate in November, can we dump slime ball, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and get a bona fide conservative put in his place?
  20. 2022 Friday S: Political News II– After being unfairly dismissed from the White House’s Fitness Council yesterday along with famed football star, Hershel Walker, Dr. Mehmet Oz says he will continue fighting on behalf of the American people.  Next, Congressman Greg Murphy M.D., R-NC 3rd congressional district, said Americans should blame Joe Biden for ‘rising energy prices but not the Russo-Ukrainian War’ (although we blame the China-loving ‘president’ for the war, too.  The man is a loser.
  21. 2022 Friday T: U.S. House of Representatives News I– House GOP leaders are urging one of their colleagues, Congressman Jeff Fortenberry, R-NE 1st congressional district, to resign.  Congressman Fortenberry was convicted of lying to the FBI- which seems incredibly easy to do nowadays which is WHY NO one should ever speak to its special agents sans an attorney- over contributions to his 2016 re-election campaign from a Lebanese-Nigerian businessman.  Congressman McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is the one urging Mr. Fortenberry to resign.  Mr. Minority Leader, how about circling the wagons around the guy like the Democrats would were he one of theirs?
  22. 2022 Friday U: U.S. Senate News I– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says, ‘yes, I will vote to confirm Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for the U.S. Supreme Court.’  Meanwhile, a growing list of GOP senators proposed a bill that would prohibit the Palestinian garbage from opening a consulate in Jerusalem.  Excellent.
  23. 2022 Friday V: Tranny News of the Day– Despite yesterday’s veto by Utah Governor Spencer Cox, RINO, on a bill that would prohibit trannys from playing in girls’ and women’s sports, the state’s legislature overrode the veto and made it law.  How about recalling your corrupt governor?   In other news extremely crippling to the LGBTQIA+ agenda in general and the chicks with dicks’ agenda in particular, a new poll in Florida says that 52-percent of Sunshine State Democrats agree with the bill protecting parental rights in the state and scaling back on the teaching of perversion between kindergarten and the 4th grade.  Still, Disney is making all kinds of noise on behalf of perversion of every type which means the time is NOW to stop going to their theme parks, buying their DVDs, and going to their movies.  F**K YOU, Disney.
  24. 2022 Friday W: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1749 what with a $50 million jackpot on the line: 03, 13, 42, 51, 58, and Mega 17.  Out of 45,614 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $12,265 apiece
