  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

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?

  64. 2014 Friday: Third baseman Miguel Cabrera signs a 10-year contract with the Detroit Tigers for $292 million, exceeding the 10-year contract signed by Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees in 2007 for $275 million.  Elsewhere, Russia increases the price of gas to the Ukraine by 80 percent.  Finally, two cases of Ebola are reported in Liberia among people who have traveled to Guinea.
  65. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, officials find that Andreas Lubitz, co-pilot of downed Germanwings Flight 4U 9525, had mental and physical health problems that he hid from the airline; a doctor’s note was found excusing him from work on the day that he crashed the plane.  Meanwhile, the Saudi Coalition announces that it now has full control of Yemeni airspace while ground fighting continues around the port of Aden.  The Saudis are trying to drive the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels out of their positions and to reassert Yemeni Sunni control of government.
  66. 2016 Monday: Belgian prosecutors release one Muslim guy they scooped up in their search for the jihadists that capsized their country and caused widespread fear throughout Western Europe because the evidence upon which, they arrested him did not support the crimes with which they were trying to charge him.  We hope they kept eyes on him anyway…elsewhere, the Japanese military continues building up its forces and intelligence-gathering apparatuses near the disputed Senkaku Islands, the ones the Chinese covet. 
  67. 2017 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump proposed immediate budget cuts of $18 billion from programs such as medical research, infrastructure, and community grants so the American taxpayers—and NOT Mexico—could cover the down payment for the border wall.  Elsewhere, Wells Fargo Bank said it would pay $110 million to settle a class-action lawsuit over as many as 2 million accounts its employees opened for customers without getting their permission.
  68. 2018 Wednesday: Arriving for his first trip outside North Korea, Kim Jong Un arrives in Beijing via his armored train to meet with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.  Meanwhile, following an out-of-control prison riot that led to a major fire in the Carabobo state police headquarters in Valencia, Venezuela, the authorities claim 68 deaths and countless others injured and maimed.
  69. 2019 Thursday: After 100-plus migrants seized control of a merchantmen plying the waters off the coast of Libya- and which then took control of the vessel and ordered its captain and crew to take them to Malta- the Maltese navy arrived on scene, stormed the vessel, freed its crew, and took the pirates into custody.  The ship then went onto Malta where it docked, and the scumbag refugees were trotted off to holding cells.  We guess a prison on Malta beats living in Libya without Moammar Gaddafi in charge.  
  70. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus continues plaguing the world what with confirmed global cases hitting 664,924 with a total of 30,848 deaths and 140,222 recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the United States there are a total of 124,665 confirmed cases with 2,026 deaths and approximately 1,072 recoveries (although the recovery number seems a bit low).  Meanwhile, in Communist China, the authorities have re-opened parts of the epicenter of the virus- Wuhan- after two months of intense isolation including the nailing in of the afflicted into their apartments.
  71. 2021 Sunday: FOREIGN NEWS I- Some nut case runs amok in a library in Vancouver, Canada today stabbing seven people.  One person is dead, and six others wounded.  Stick around for updates.  Meanwhile, tensions continue to rise in Myanmar as the military junta goes berserk during their annual military parade in their capital city of Naypyidaw.  They murdered at least 100 people across the country yesterday and continue their rampage today.  Since the military coup took charge, more than 420 brave souls have been slain by the left-wing thugs.
  72. 2021 Sunday A: FOREIGN NEWS II- Meanwhile, a pair of jihadists attempt to storm a Roman Catholic Church but end up detonating their suicide bombs outside the main entrance injuring at least 14 people.  The Indonesian jihad attack occurred on the island of Sulawesi.   One must love the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Elsewhere, for the second year in a row- thanks to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu Pandemic- Pope Francis delivered Palm Sunday services to a near-empty St. Peter’s Basilica.  Finally, two additional tugboats are heading to the Suez Canal to try to budge the quarter-mile-long container ship blocking canal traffic.  Economic losses are estimated to be around $9 billion per day in shipped goods reaching their destinations.
  73. 2021 Sunday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE- The attorney general of the great state of Montana- Austin Knudsen- announces that IF the Biden administration attempts to deliver illegal immigrants from the U.S.-Mexico border to northern states, they are going to slam the administration with a hefty lawsuit.  NO one wants these illegals, Joe, so stop dumping them across the country.  As the BIDEN BORDER HOLOCAUST continues to develop, a weakening Biden administration says, ‘yes, indeed, it will allow reporters to visit the border.’  Speaking of the border, President Donald J. Trump says he will be visiting the border within the next several weeks.   Next, an ABC-IPSOS poll released today says that ’56-percent of the American people do NOT approve of Joe Biden’s bungled border crisis, the disaster that threatens to engulf our entire nation.  We suspect the numbers are far higher than that.  Finally, Senator Mike Braun reported that a Biden administration hack demanded GOP senators delete all photos of their visit to the crumbling border.
  74. 2021 Sunday C: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS- The Biden administration installs a rabid anti-Trumper by the name of Richard Torres Estrada into the role of Chief of Diversity and Inclusion (what a load of bullshit.  There, we said it, what are you going to do about it?) into the Special Operations Command.  I guess we need more snowflakes with which to terrify the NEW Axis powers of communist China, Russia, Iran, and their junior partners North Korea, Venezuela, and Cuba.  Limp-wristed defenses are best.  Speaking of North Korea, it appears that Joe Biden is indeed losing sleep at night over North Korea because he won’t utter a peep against their bellicosity.
  75. 2021 Sunday D: POLITICAL NEWS I- In Iowa, the news media is turning on Democrat Rita Hart, the woman trying to get House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to steal the seat from lawfully-seated Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks.  The Cornhuskers are growing angrier by the day and the Democrat media is slamming Ms. Hart and Pelosi, too.  God bless them.   Meanwhile, Bill Maher on his show, Real Time with Bill Maher, noted left-of-center commentator is blasting the WOKE attitudes in U.S. schools, hammering them for being unable to hear ALL views.  Good for you, Bill.
  76. 2021 Sunday E: POLITICAL NEWS II- Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, Congressman Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd congressional district, blasts “Mumbles” for staging political theater on the grounds of the Capitol what with razor wire fencing that never seems to come down surrounding Fort Pelosi as well as for installing metal detectors through which, ALL members must pass or face an immediate docking of $5,000 from their pay.  People of California vote this angry old senile hag out of office.
  77. 2021 Sunday F: POLITICAL NEWS III- Corey Lewandowski says that when President Donald J. Trump’s new social media platform goes live, people will be able to communicate directly with the 45th president.   Elsewhere, GOP Asian official Lee Wong shows his battle scars to his fellow Cincinnati city council members.  “Don’t question my patriotism” as he displayed his scarred body from 20-years’ military service in the U.S. military.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. says that ‘before the Democrats go after law abiding citizens’ guns, they had better do something about Hunter Biden as man, that guy lied on a federal background check form as well as tossed a firearm into a trash can across from a school that then disappeared.  Amen.
  78. 2021 Sunday G: POLITICAL NEWS IV- Meanwhile, this September, Congress is going to award murdered retired police Captain David Dorn with the Congressional Medal of Honor.  Looks like “Mumbles” needs to show she actually gives a flying fluck about murdered cops.    Elsewhere, the people of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are seeking to remove their version of Los Angeles County’s George Gascon, the inept left-wing POS DA Larry Krasner.  Since last summer’s protests, violent crime rates have soared into the stratosphere.  Remove this George Soros-funded piece of duck dreck from office.  NOW.   Next, Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA and a man who serves Karl Marx and the Lord simultaneously, told Dana “Horse Face” Bash today that the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate can concentrate on BOTH voting rights and infrastructure at the same time.  Wow.  Good for you.
  79. 2021 Sunday H: CHINESE VIRUS NEWS- Vladimir Putin says he expects that herd immunity in the former Soviet Union will arrive sometime towards the end of summer at which point, all lockdowns and restrictions will be removed.   Next, the British expect the second round of Wuhan Virus vaccines will soon be administered to the British people and even better, thanks to increasing supplies, people will not have to receive MIXED vaccinations which is incredibly good.  Elsewhere, One America News asked a question today: “Is the China Virus responsible for hate crimes?”  No, the communist Chinese are responsible for the virus and OTHER minorities than Asians hired by the Democrats to go out and commit faux hate crimes against Asians are responsible.  Why do you think we NEVER see the perpetrators in the FEW EXAMPLES trotted out by leftist news media to show us of this wave of hate crimes against Asian Americans?  It’s not happening yet Asian Americans at the drop of a hat (Democrats set this stuff in motion) are out in the streets demanding STOP THE HATE.  It’s all Astroturf, folks.  (What we have seen is young black men attacking Asians.  Someone talk about that, please).
  80. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,016,385 confirmed cases, 2,780,776  confirmed deaths, and 71,960,689 confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,254,490 confirmed cases, 549,289 confirmed deaths, (down from last count albeit from a different source) and 118,387,582 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. 
  81. 2021 Sunday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,658,714 confirmed cases, 58,815 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,712 confirmed cases, 461 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 361,115 confirmed cases, 5,218 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the fourth highest state after California- Illinois: currently, they have 1,220,432 confirmed cases, 23,329 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 831,924 confirmed cases, 6,185 confirmed deaths, and 816,218 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Jordan, home of the Hashemite kings: 589,316 cases of the virus, 8,763 confirmed deaths and 527,609 confirmed recoveries.[v]
  82. 2021 Sunday K: 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 $3.895 per gallon, $3.649 in Hawaii, and $3.326 in Washington state.[vi]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,105,144,952,031 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[vii]  Cloward and Piven at high speed.
  83. 2021 Sunday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- California theme parks are preparing to reopen this week.  Next, the White House and private industries are conspiring as HOW to create ‘vaccine passports’ so that those who resist vaccination with this as yet-unknown crap- will be prevented from participating in normal society.  The Health and Human Services Department is the driving force behind this initiative by which, the federal government and the globalist movement can force everyone to accept their agenda.  People of faith are suspicious of this push to get everyone to take this vaccine for a disease that millions suspect is not quite as bad as advertised.  Very strange, folks, very strange.  Finally, Oscar De La Hoya is going to make yet another comeback, this time at age 48.
  84. 2022 Monday: Stick around, let’s see what happens today…

85. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 26, 2022

2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS- Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos. The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.

  77. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos.  The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.  Most Americans are appalled enough already knowing that this fuddled old fool STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election but are even more so now that a majority of Americans realize we have a vegetable in the White House.  WTF is happening to our country.  Next, the White House says that Joe Biden is going to beef up gun control measures by scrawling his chicken scratch on more executive orders.  F**k you, Joe, NO one is taking our guns.
  78. 2021 Friday A: “RACIST! NEWS”/WHAT’S RACIST TODAY– Oakland, California Mayor and crackpot political hack Libby Schaaf backs an income supplement program that will help disadvantaged black folks but won’t help equally disadvantaged white folks living in that corrupt East Bay city.  Wow.  Next, a Minnesota-based dinner theater scraps a presentation of “Cinderella” because the cast was ‘too white.’   Meanwhile, black leaders zero in on Democrat holdouts in the U.S. Senate who do not want to toss the filibuster onto the heap.  Thus, they are going to accuse them of being racists 24/7/365 with the Reverend Al Sharpton at the head of the pack of accusers.[xi]  What a bunch of crap.   Elsewhere, the top editor at the Journal of the American Medical Association, aka JAMA- Howard Bauchner- found himself sidelined over a tweet and podcast he made in which he said: “No physician is racist, so how can there be structural racism in health care?”  Not good, Dr. B., black doctors became angry and out you go.  Get with it man!
  79. 2021 Friday B: LIBERAL STUPIDITY– Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon- a George Soros appointee- is not going to try 20-year-old murderous thug Jalen Yoakum as an adult.  This means the POS will be back on the streets in five years.  When is L.A. County going to remove this worthless scumbag?  Meanwhile, the state of Oregon is going to go after concealed carry permits via a new direction by creating a patchwork of gun-free zones all over the place making it difficult for gun owners to carry their lawfully-owned firearms and avoid felonies.  Thugs, of course, will still be packing.  No wonder eastern Oregon wants to break off from the lunatics in the western portion.   Elsewhere, Dems in the Peach State are going berserk over Governor Brian Kemp signing the new voting rights bill.  Massachusetts phony Native American Senator Lizzie “Borden” Warren tweeted that ‘the man sitting in Stacey Abrams chair (good one, Lizzie, good one) is taking the state back to JIM CROW!”[xii]  In fact, a state black lawmaker, Park Cannon, was arrested for banging on the governor’s door after the cops told her to stop knocking.  Stupid skank.[xiii]   Finally, the White House says, ‘Joe Biden’ is worried about the Georgia voting rights law.[xiv]
  80. 2021 Friday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden owes border officials a big apology for creating the massive tsunami surge of illegal aliens flooding across our border.’  Meanwhile, as GOP lawmakers visit the overwhelmed southern border, Senator Mike Lee, R-OR, said that across the Rio Grande River, smugglers, gangbangers, and cartel trash were taunting them.[xv]  Elsewhere, the GOP is demanding that the news media be allowed to film along the southern border so the nation can see what the heck is going on down there with illegal aliens as thick as cockroaches in a Tijuana backstreet whore house rushing across it.  Time to do some pest control, folks.  Finally, it would appear that every sitting GOP U.S. senator is down at the border today blasting the inept Joe Biden administration.
  81. 2021 Friday D: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– thanks to Joe Biden’s incredibly stupid policies on energy production and usage, the U.S. is back to importing oil, much of which is Russian oil, and our guy has the nerve to call Putin a “Killer.”  WTF?   Meanwhile, former Ohio treasurer and candidate for Senator Rob Portman’s seat when he steps down at the end of his term said that ‘Joe Biden isn’t all there.’  Go figure.  Next, Joe Biden may invite Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping to a virtual climate summit.  Wow.  Amazing, Joe, simply amazing. 
  82. 2021 Friday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– USC reaches a settlement of $852 million following it acknowledging that a former campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall- charged with five counts of sexual abuse- abused hundreds of female students while employed at the University of Southern California.  The crimes allegedly occurred between 2011 and 2015.  Wow.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and rapper Killer Mike are meeting with folks in Bessemer, Alabama, the site of a big battle to unionize.  Liberal icon Amazon is doing battle with its workers seeking to unionize the plant to seek better wages and even better treatment.  Amazon will probably move the plant to Puerto Rico.  Be careful.
  83. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, signs a bill ending trannys from participating in girls and women’s sports.  Excellent.  As we have repeatedly said, IF trannys are so determined to compete in sports, it’s far easier to create a third category of sports as well as separate locker rooms.  Let them have at it and we suspect that tranny sports would have far more fans than either girls/women’s or boys/men’s sports.  It’s like roller derby, everyone loves watching the women more so than men so how about creating a third category of competitive sports, you know, for the mentally ill- oh, wait, did we just say that?  Sorry.  Elsewhere, Dominion Voting Systems, the ALLEGEDLY CORRUPT ORGANIZATION THAT STEALS ELECTIONS FOR THE HIGHEST BIDDER- is slapping Fox News Channel with a $1.6 billion lawsuit alleging FNC slandered their fine, fine company.  Sounds like deflection to us or at least so says our attorneys.
  84. 2021 Friday G: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Since Kim Jong Un and North Korea have become belligerent again what with Joe Biden talking s**t about them, elements of the 1st Armored Division are deploying to South Korea.  Next, the People’s Republic of China, aka the Chi-Coms, have slapped reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for having slapped human rights sanctions on them.  Elsewhere, the container ship beached in the Suez Canal threatens to be there for several months blocking passage through the incredibly important waterway.  This, of course, will lead to higher energy prices as well as drive up the cost of goods around the world.  Glenn Beck raised the specter as to whether someone hacked into the controls of the ship and caused it to run aground.  We thought this was possible after two U.S. Navy ships collided with commercial freighters back in 2017.  Two guided-missile destroyers, the USS Fitzgerald and the USS John S. McCain ran into other ships back in June and August of that year for which there was no real explanation.  Could it be the Chi-Coms, the Russians, or some other nefarious unseen actor is able to cause such mishaps?  Sure, seems possible to us…
  85. 2021 Friday H: MEDICAL NEWS– Former Centers for Disease Control- the CDC- Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘COVID-19 bat flu virus did indeed escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.’  The question is, was it a purposeful release?  Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Atlas said to Glenn Beck today that ‘science and expertise have become compromised, politicized, and that the demand for social distancing of six-feet or more (or less) is based on pseudo-science.’  God bless you.  Next, the U.S. pulls over 95-percent of its stockpiled PPE gowns over safety issues.  Must be the crap manufactured in communist China.  Moving on, the cities of Boston, Newark, and Norfolk will become mega-vaccination sites on the East Coast.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates says ‘life will probably be back to normal by 2022.’  Bill- STFU.  Finally, the European Union is peeved with its vaccine suppliers as the demand far outpaces the production.  Are you dummies using the Russian Sputnik vaccine?  Serves you right, dimwits.
  86. 2021 Friday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– President Donald J. Trump said today that during the Antifa/Black Lives Matter FALSE FLAG OPERATION launched against Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021, lawmakers were in ‘ZERO DANGER.’  We concur, it was set up from the start.   Speaking of President Trump, he will also remain neutral in the Alabama race for the U.S. Senate seat, and, according to Jason Miller, President Trump may visit the southern border soon.  Next, Congressman Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi thinks she can remove anyone from office.’  Elsewhere, New York’s junior Senator Kirsten “Whitey” Gillibrand defends her call for Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to resign as being her personal opinion.  (The Lov Gov must have called her up and threatened her).  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi has authorized several House committees to conduct intensive investigations into rooting out the scurrilous scumbags behind the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, riots the Democrats set in motion.  She is angry NO Republicans will join her in yet another witch hunt.
  87. 2021 Friday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– U.S. Cybercommand says that recent hacks by foreign actors are a ‘clarion call’ to arms.  You go.  Meanwhile, Parler says it informed the FBI of numerous threats made on its site prior to the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is calling for an end to the lockdown on the cruise ship industry.  Cruise ships must get back to work.  NOW.  Next, “Lonesome Dove” (and other books) author Larry McMurtry is dead at the age of 84.  God bless you, Larry!  Moving on, the Michigan GOP plans to bypass a weakened Governor Gretchen “Bride of Frankenstein” Whitmer, Democratic-Socialist, and fix the voting laws in their state.  Finally, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says ‘Congress holding BIG TECH accountable is going to be a challenge.’
  88. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 124,683,860 confirmed cases, +579,564, 2,742,357  confirmed deaths, +9,863, and 70,731,503 confirmed recoveries, +338,716 (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS!).  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,223,587 confirmed cases, up 61,840 from yesterday’s reporting, 550,726 confirmed deaths, UP 1,315, (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS!) and 117,827,913 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. 
  89. 2021 Friday L: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  91. 2021 Friday N: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,072.88, UP 453.40 points (+1.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,138.73, UP 161.04 points (+1.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,974.54, UP 65.02 points (+1.66%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.72 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,731.60 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.11 per troy ounce, 0.00 (-0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,191.10 per troy oz, +13.20 (+1.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.08 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,677.50 per troy oz, +52.00 (+1.98%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -900.00 (-3.09%).[xix]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.58.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Belize dollars, one greenback equals 2.00.[xx]  
  92. 2021 Friday O: 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 $3.889 per gallon, $3.635 in Hawaii, and $3.323 in Washington state.[xxi]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,097,328,683,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  93. 2021 Friday P: NASA/SCIENCE NEWS– NASA reports that the humongous asteroid named Apophis originally thought to maybe impact the Earth sometime in 2068 now won’t come near enough to the Earth to wreak havoc on the planet for at least another century.  This bad boy from the cosmos is the size of the Empire State Building and is slated to pass within 20,000 miles of the Earth on Friday, April 13, 2029.  Astronomers point out that the moon is 238,000 miles away from our planet so this substantial chunk of rock is going to pass by us at an extremely close distance which astronomers are all excited about as it will provide them ample opportunity to get some good photos of it.  Let’s hope another chunk of space debris doesn’t slam into it, deflect it, and send it crashing down on our planet (unless it decides to hit communist China, Russia, or Iran first before creating a massive extinction event the likes of which ended the reign of the dinosaurs).   Italian astronomer Claudio Maccone says the best protection against space-based threats such as asteroids is space-based missiles with which to blow them up when they are a good distance from the planet rather than immediately threatening it.
  94. 2021 Friday Q: LATE NEWS I– Beloved children’s author Beverly Cleary died at the age of 104 today.  Meanwhile, rabid, foaming at the mouth liberals are suing Georgia’s elections officials over the new voting laws someone in the White House calls the ‘new Jim Crow of the 21st century.’  Yikes.  That hurts.  Elsewhere, the FREE nation of Taiwan, aka the Republic of China or Nationalist China, reported today that 20 Chi-Com warplanes penetrated its airspace today which led to rapid scrambling of attack planes and targeted missiles which drove the communist invaders back out to sea.  Light ‘em up, Taiwan, light those SOBs up!   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, them and the Russians are drawing closer together in an effort to intimidate the United States.  What else is new?   Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger warns that the constant ‘U.S.-China contest risks catastrophic conflict.’ 
  95. 2021 Friday R: LOTTERY NEWS– Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1645 with a jackpot of $137 million on the line.  Get your tickets purchased by 7:45 P.M. tonight.  Here are the results: 04, 25, 37, 46, 67, and Mega 15.  Out of 69,400 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,502.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Robbie Robertson’s next solo album came out on March 10, 1998, and is somewhat unique among his growing discography of music.  The famed guitarist of the Band jumped into a celebrated effort in which, he tried to bring the music of the First Peoples of Canada, aka aboriginals, to a wider audience, sort of what Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones did when he presented his ground-breaking effort, “Pipes of Pan at Joujouka,” an album that came out in 1971.  In that effort, Jones presented the whirling music of North African flute players and drummers whereas here, Robertson brings together large numbers of musicians to play his visionary intermingling of native rhythms with modern musical forms.  We hope you will seek this one out, consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure, and then sharing it with others.  We think they will be as appreciative of it as will you.  Enjoy.

[i] We look forward to doing our favorite classical composers one day.  Hopefully within the next 30 years.

[ii] See “The Soviet Juggernaut” by Earl F. Ziemke and the Editors of Time-Life Books (1980).

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

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Boston but when we do, we will alert the readership.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

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

[viii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[ix] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[x] 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.

[xi] The Reverend Al never misses out on an opportunity to label people RACISTS.

[xii] She should KNOW about Jim Crow.  Democrats were- and still are, for that matter- the party of Jim Crow as well as the party of separate but equal, the KKK, slavery, race hatred, segregation, red-lining, white flight, burning crosses, police dogs, fire hoses, beatings, plantation prisons, and the Civil War.  Dems love braying about “JIM CROW, JIM CROW” as it is the new watchword of the day, everything anyone opposing them does is taking us back to “Jim Crow.”  Lizzie- STFU you lying, phony, hypocritical, crazy f**king bitch!  Enough is enough!

[xiii] This moronic little chub probably thinks, “Boy, I sure showed them!”  We’re sure she believes Governor Kemp is also a racist bigot.  Enough already.

[xiv] Why?  Can’t Joe just undo everything with yet another executive order and can’t the Democrats coerce RINO Governor Brian Kemp into signing another consent decree in 2022 that will permit overweight Stacey Abrams to steal the elections as she did in 2020?  What the hell is the big deal?

[xv] This is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups from Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama as well as laying in minefields, antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat impediments, putting down spikes on our side of the river IN the river at the border line, putting in military emplacements, troops, razor wire augmenting the wall, and completing the wall.  Hell, put in foo gas pits and whatever else we need to stop the invasion.  BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL!

74. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2022, UPDATE A

The United Nations is supposed to stop wars from breaking out. It’s their number one objective, their raison d’être, and yet, they do nothing, nothing at all about Ukraine, much like its predecessor, the League of Nations, it does nothing, much like the League abandoning Abyssinia to Fascist Italy. Following that failure, World War II exploded a couple years later…

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 244

74. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2022, UPDATE A:

The United Nations is supposed to stop wars from breaking out.  It’s their number one objective, their raison d’être, and yet, they do nothing, nothing at all about Ukraine, much like its predecessor, the League of Nations, it does nothing, much like the League abandoning Abyssinia to Fascist Italy.  Following that failure, World War II exploded a couple years later…

  1. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 462,012,958 confirmed cases, +2,298,089, 6,073,733 confirmed deaths, +6,622 and 394,896,086 confirmed recoveries, +1,763,341. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 81,244,936 confirmed cases, UP 29,818 from yesterday’s reporting, 992,302 confirmed deaths, DOWN 1,274,[i] and 56,456,450 confirmed recoveries, UP 203,845.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]
  2. 2022 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 542,799 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 179,744 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 419 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,045,798 confirmed cases, 87,770 confirmed deaths, and 8,958,028 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,872,509 confirmed cases, 72,055 confirmed deaths, and 5,800,454 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 237,632 confirmed cases, 1,354 confirmed deaths, and 236,278 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,440,632 confirmed cases, 12,219 confirmed deaths, and 1,428,413 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Ohio: they have 2,663,835 confirmed cases, 37,410 confirmed deaths, and 2,607,778 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,732,586 confirmed cases, 10,399 confirmed deaths, and 3,681,263 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- San Marino, 180th place on the list: 14,726 cases of the virus, 112 confirmed death and 14,340 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,544.34, UP 599.10 points (+1.82%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,948.62 UP 367.40 points (+2.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,262.45, UP 89.34 points (+2.14%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $96.07 per barrel, +0.37 (+0.38%).  The price of GOLD is $1,922.80 per troy oz., -6.90 (-0.36%) while the price of SILVER is $25.15 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.05%).  The price of PLATINUM is $989.30 per troy oz, -13.20 (-1.32%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, -0.01 (-0.14%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,436.63 per troy oz., +12.67 (+0.52%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,400.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.54%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,450,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (-0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,393.00 per USD/T, +73.50 (+2.21%). The price of ZINC is $3,839.00 per USD/T., +50.00 (+0.79%).   The price of COCOA is $2,461.00 per USD/T, -110.00 (-4.28%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,420.00 USD 1,000 board feet +10.00 (+0.71%).[vi]   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. = 0.91 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.84, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 102.00 of theirs.    In Tunisian Dinar, one greenback equals 2.97 and in Turkish Lira, a buck equals 14.73 and in Turkmenistan Manat, one dollar equals 3.49 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.750 per gallon, $4.329 in Florida, $4.997 in Hawaii, and $4.743 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Ohio- $4.070.  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 153rd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Israel: $8.375 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,320,137,305,739 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 Kuwait the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Sweden.  This nation holds $47,000,000,000 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 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster these past 347 days and worse than that, she has not arrived on scene in 261 days to do her job.  Tragic.  Ah, well, today, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens since the first day of 2022 is around $468,902,327.  Second, the cost of caring for the illegals since Joe Biden became president is $42,746,574,390.  Third, the number of illegals who have swarmed across the border since January 01, 2022, is around 755,740.  Fourth and final, the number of illegals- conservative, mind you- we estimate in the U.S. is 43,526,114.  We believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-125 million which is horrendous.  (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, and MIT).
  8. 2022 Tuesday G: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $52.21 (2) AstraZeneca: $61.37 (3) Novavax: $73.80 (4) Merck & Company: $78.64 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $176.14  (6) BioNTech: $145.04 (7) Moderna: $148.12.
  9. 2022 Tuesday H: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $97.62 (2) Boeing: $179.89 (3) General Dynamics: $237.62 (4) Lockheed Martin: $448.67 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $447.82.
  10. 2022 Tuesday I: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.27 (2) DuPont: $71.87 (3) 3M: $144.31 (4) Honeywell: $187.79  (5) Teijen: $1,332.00.
  11. 2022 Tuesday J: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $22.64 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $61.32  (3) Beyond Meat: $38.89.
  12. 2022 Tuesday K: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $145.78 (2) Lowe’s: $231.07 (3) Home Depot: $328.54 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $542.32 (5) Amazon: $2,947.33.
  13. 2022 Tuesday L: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Poland’s Jaroslaw Kaczynski is calling for a peacekeeping mission to Ukraine.  People are curious as to WHY the United Nations is not involving itself with peacekeepers from around the world to stop the ongoing war in Ukraine.  The UN is a sham entity and should be expelled from the United States and relocated to Mongolia or some such other deserving country.
  14. 2022 Tuesday M: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- Russia’s UN humanitarian resolution fails to mention anything about its war in Ukraine.  What the Russians did do is to slap retaliatory sanctions on Joe Biden and members of his regime for having slapped them on them.   The White House made light of these sanctions, but you know, they must have pissed off feeble Joe Biden.  Imagine- Russians slapping sanctions on the regime?  Wow.
  15. 2022 Tuesday N: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump gave Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban his full endorsement to serve another term as leader of his freedom-loving country.  The Hungarians are like-minded people who want a common culture, a shared language, and protected borders.  We love the country and its people, too, and if we have to flee here, we will learn the Magyar culture, the language, and their history.
  16. 2022 Tuesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I- The Biden regime says that the U.S. will soon run out key COVID-19 treatments which sounds like it’s time to replenish funds to the drug companies who will then donate substantial portions of those funds BACK TO DEMOCRATS which is how the money-go-round works.  Pretty slick, eh?  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken discussed Ukraine’s security needs with its foreign minister.   Next, the U.S. Department of State announces that it WON’T permit Russia- or so it says- to use its help in reestablishing the JCPOA as a means of evading U.S. sanctions imposed on them.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden is set to approve a $1 billion aid package for Ukraine- after he takes his cut– sometime later this week.   Finally, a new poll claims that half of America’s voters have faith that slobbering Joe Biden will run for another term.  Say what?
  17. 2022 Tuesday P: Political News I- Former Acting Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell says that ‘Secretary Blinken is not truly active in diplomacy involving the Ukraine and Russia.’  Meanwhile, in a major issue very few- with the exception of Tucker Carlson of Fox News- is discussing, Saudi Arabia is making overtures to communist China as to using Chinese Yuan rather than U.S. dollars in the sale of oil around the world.  Were this to happen, the United States would plummet into a life-altering depression from which it would be extremely difficult to escape.  This is yet another problem the morons in the Biden regime are inflicting upon the world in general and the U.S. in particular.
  18. 2022 Tuesday Q: Crime and Punishment News- Disgraced actor Jussie Smollett has been moved out of a jail cell and into the psych ward for observation.  Don’t kill yourself, Jussie.  You’ll have fun in the slammer.
  19. 2022 Tuesday R: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News- Much to the horror of the Pro-Death Movement, Tennessee lawmakers have enacted a Texas-style anti-abortion law, one that forbids all abortions past 15 weeks.
  20. 2022 Tuesday S: California State News- A measure in Sacramento with which to suspend the gasoline tax so as to lower the Golden State’s already high gasoline prices for the citizens fell short.  Go figure.  In November, citizens of the state must vote out every single f**king Democrat in both state and national government so as to save the state.  Otherwise, it’s over and done.
  21. 2022 Tuesday T: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1746 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line: 09, 14, 28, 59, 60, and Mega 24.  Out of 42,314 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,722 apiece.

Joe Biden is worried more about protecting trannys than he is involving us in a conflict that could herald the End Times.  Joe, stop fretting about the chicks with dicks, dude, and start looking at the bigger picture like averting a Third World War

  1. 2022 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 440,553,009 confirmed cases, +2,157,408, 5,992,483 confirmed deaths, +9,367 and 372,987,959 confirmed recoveries, +2,153,009.

  2. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 530,134 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 167,079 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 406 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 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: 8,984,980 confirmed cases, 86,020 confirmed deaths, and 8,898,960 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it-.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,854,285 confirmed cases, 70,247 confirmed deaths, and 4,268,222 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 236,435 confirmed cases, 1,341 confirmed deaths, and 235,094 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,427,013 confirmed cases, 11,954 confirmed deaths, and 1,415,059 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., U.S. Northern Mariana Islands: they have 9,856 confirmed cases, 30 confirmed deaths, and 9,104 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,651,231 confirmed cases, 10,237 confirmed deaths, and 3,577,832 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Isle of Man, 167th place on the list: 23,099 cases of the virus, 79 confirmed death and 22,464 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,891.35, UP 596.40 points (+1.79%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,752.02 UP 219.56 points (+1.62%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,386.54, UP 80.28 points (+1.86%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $113.63 per barrel, +3.03 (+2.74%).  The price of GOLD is $1,931.90 per troy oz., +9.60 (+2.74%) while the price of SILVER is $25.27 per troy ounce, +0.08 (+0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,073.30 per troy oz, +5.30 (+0.50%) while the price of COPPER is $4.69 per pound, +0.02 (+0.47%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,658.29 per troy oz., -10.27 (-0.38%).

  6. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.866 per gallon, $3.573 in Florida, $4.605 in Hawaii, and $4.039 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Michigan- $3.620.  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 141st HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- San Marino: $7.361 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,292,222,800,086 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 Singapore the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia 2.  The best vacation spot in the world holds $136,000,000,000 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 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- A new report suggests that Russians on the home front are beginning to feel the sanctions.  Despite NO direct sanctions on Russia’s oil and gas sector, that portion of their economy is beginning to slump.  However, U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Russia being banned from the SWIFT banking system will demonstrate how much the People’s Republic of China will support their Russian allies.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, a new report says that Chi-Com bigwig Xi Jinping told his stooge, Vladimir Putin, to wait until the end of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics before sending his tank columns and storm-troopers into Ukraine.
  8. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- As the Russians continue the destruction and devastation of Ukraine, Russian authorities claim they won’t hamper the flow of refugees seeking to flee the major cities the new “Red Army” is leveling to the ground.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden is sending more Stinger missiles to Ukraine with which the troops on the ground can continue shooting down Russian helicopters.  U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken says, Putin’s threats to go nuclear the height of irresponsibility.’  Elsewhere, at least 20 European nations are pouring weapons into Ukraine with which to fight off the new ‘Red Army,’ thus raising the specter of a wider European war.   Finally, Russian forces batter their way into the Ukrainian city of Kherson, suffering heavy casualties as they do so.  Ukrainians in many places are fighting to the death while many Russian soldiers are throwing down their weapons and surrendering.
  9. 2022 Wednesday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Folks, the famed border czar, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the border blowout now for 334 days.  Sadly, it’s been 248 days since she arrived down there to do her job.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens for the past 61 days we estimate stands at $397,229,298.  The cost of caring for them since senile Joe Biden has been in charge stands around $42,038,118,793.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed across our borders for the past 61 days: 636,059.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate of the numbers of illegal aliens currently sucking away at the wealth of the American taxpayers: 43,395,989.  We believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-125 million and rising as we speak.
  10. 2022 Wednesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $47.70 (2) AstraZeneca: $62.00 (3) Merck & Company: $76.67 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $166.04 (5) Novavax: $86.39 (6) BioNTech: $146.95 (7) Moderna: $147.86.

  13. 2022 Wednesday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.62 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $27.18 (3) Beyond Meat: $45.90.
  14. 2022 Wednesday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $136.16 (2) Lowe’s: $228.66 (3) Home Depot: $327.37 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $528.00 (5) Amazon: $3,041.05.
  15. 2022 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws- First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3643 what with a $21 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 06, 14, 16, 19, 38, and Mega 08.  Out of 104,806 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $35,171.  The winning ticket was sold at Orcutt Liquor in Santa Maria, CA, 93455.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #957 with a jackpot of $21 million up for grabs: 19, 37, 48, 61, 63, and Power 12. Out of 34,326 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $9,338 apiece.
  16. 2022 Wednesday O: Observation of the Day- I am curious: the Russians are having a tough go of conquering Ukraine.  The Ukrainians are putting up a fight the likes of which we have not seen since the NATO-led war against Serbia during the breakup of Yugoslavia.  I guess NATO- and the Joe Biden regime- lacks the cojones to do battle with Russia whereas they had plenty of testosterone to gang up on Serbia in the 1990s.  I am not saying we should enter this war; however, we should send the Ukrainians as much military equipment as is possible just as we did the Afghans when they were battling the Soviets 1979-1989.  I suspect that if Putin cannot win this conflict outright, Xi Jinping will have to bail him out which means we could see 10 People’s Liberation Army frontline divisions heading west down the Trans-Siberian Railroad with possibly one or two North Korean divisions to back them up, complete with armor, artillery, airpower, and everything else an invasion army might need.  Can you imagine what this would mean?  A total of 720,000 communist soldiers going to war on behalf of Vladimir Putin.  It would herald the End Times, I suspect.  I was wrong in my assessment of Putin yesterday.  I labeled him ‘Hitler’ whereas now, I see him as Benito Mussolini and Xi Jinping as Adolf Hitler.  ‘European Korps’ coming west towards Europe anytime soon?  We shall see, especially since we have a paper tiger in the White House, worried more about defending trannys than in defending the entire country.

The world is coming to the aid of the Ukrainians which is amazing. Subsequently, the Chi-Coms are somewhat silent. They didn’t expect their junior partner to face the growing catastrophe that he is, atrocities, banned weapons, and an inability to motivate his troops.

Linus Pauling Day (Oregon)

The world is coming to the aid of the Ukrainians which is amazing.  Subsequently, the Chi-Coms are somewhat silent.  They didn’t expect their junior partner to face the growing catastrophe that he is, atrocities, banned weapons, and an inability to motivate his troops.  Could Vladimir Putin’s head be atop the chopping block?

  1. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 437,070,169 confirmed cases, +1,084,267, 5,975,010 confirmed deaths, +6,983 and 368,189,870 confirmed recoveries, +1,680,464.

Trump’s 15-month number by 162,504 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 404 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 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: 8,975,836 confirmed cases, 85,613 confirmed deaths, and 8,890,223 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it-.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,850,431 confirmed cases, 70,084 confirmed deaths, and 4,167,468 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 236,151 confirmed cases, 1,334 confirmed deaths, and 234,817 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,423,990 confirmed cases, 11,866 confirmed deaths, and 1,412,124 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Guam: they have 44,573 confirmed cases, 328 confirmed deaths, and 41,133 confirmed recoveries.[iii]

  5. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,892.60, DOWN 165.15 points (-0.49%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,751.40 UP 56.77 points (+0.41%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,373.94, DOWN 10.71 points (-0.24%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $96.36 per barrel, +0.64 (+0.67%).  The price of GOLD is $1,903.22 per troy oz., -4.68 (-0.25%) while the price of SILVER is $24.32 per troy ounce, -0.10 (-0.41%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,041.97 per troy oz, -1.42 (-0.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.48 per pound, +0.04 (+0.93%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,492.22 per troy oz., +3.83 (+0.15%).

  6. 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 $4.827 per gallon, $3.518 in Florida, $4.549 in Hawaii, and $4.008 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Maryland- $3.599.  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 139th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Wallis and Futuna: $7.134 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,157,932,433,587 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 India the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia 1.  The best vacation spot in the world holds $180,000,000,000 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 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- As brave, freedom-loving Ukrainian defenders continue inflicting horrendous casualties atop the invading Russians, Vladimir Putin requested a meeting to hold talks at a site along the border between Belorussia- a Russian stooge- and Ukraine between representatives of both nations.  Ukraine’s foreign minister vows NO CAPITULATION to the Russians.  Film shows horrible losses for the Russians, reminiscent of the great tank battle at Kursk in 1943.  Russian frontline combat tanks and self-propelled artillery pieces appear more like knocked-out Porsche Ferdinand and Elefant tank destroyers which is a testament to the brave freedom-fighters of Ukraine.   As of last night, the United Nations reported at least 102 Ukrainian civilians dead- including seven children- murdered by the invading Red Army hordes.  WHERE CAN WE SEND MONEY?  As these talks begin between the crumbling invaders and the people of Ukraine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky signed the application for his country to join the European Union and while debuting it to the whirring cameras of news media, asked for immediate entry to the massive bloc of nations.
  8. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- The Ukrainian government is demanding the United Nations investigate Russian war crimes in the nation’s second largest city, Kharkiv, where the Russians have deployed cluster bombs and thermobaric bombs against the civilian population[xi]. Time for the Ukrainians to begin setting up roadside bombs the likes of which, terrorized U.S. and Coalition forces in Iraq and killed and maimed many servicemen-and-women.  Blow those f**king Russians UP!  Meanwhile, new reports confirm Vladimir Putin has activated at least 400 Chechen sicarios to go into Kyiv and kill not only President Zelensky and his family but also as many members of the government as they can.  We hope the Ukrainians capture and behead this filth.   Speaking of Putin’s war crimes, Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says of Vladimir Putin that he may begin a ‘scorched earth’ policy as he seeks a quick victory.
  9. 2022 Monday H:  Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III- Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky continues calling for Joe Biden and NATO to establish a NO-FLY ZONE over Ukraine to prevent the Russians from carrying out indiscriminate terror bombings of civilian centers.  Joe Biden is cowering beneath his desk, but NATO might step up to this challenge.  Putin is terrified of Ukraine joining NATO which is almost a guarantee now.  In essence, Xi Jinping’s Russian stooge is going to see the outcome he never wanted to see- Ukraine and possibly Georgia joining NATO.  Meanwhile, as word circulates of the Chechen hit squads moving into Kyiv, President Zelensky is deploying prison inmates with combat experience to fight the Russians.  In so doing, they can expunge their records.   Equally impressive, Westerners are forming international brigades with which to combat the Russian war criminals running amok in Ukraine.[xii]  WHERE CAN WE SEND MONEY?
  10. 2022 Monday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- While the world focuses on Ukraine, the invasion on OUR border continues unabated.  The cost of caring for the millions of illegal aliens the past 59 days is around $378,008,526.  The cost of caring for the illegals in this country while Joe Biden’s been in office is $42,025,304,945.  The number of illegals estimated to have crossed the border since January 01, 2022, is around 615,205.  Finally, the estimated number of illegals in the United States stands around 43,375,141 which is a conservative LOW estimate- we believe the number is around 85-to-125 million illegal aliens.
  11. 2022 Monday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I- As the new ‘Red Army’ continues its invasion of Ukraine, Switzerland said, “ENOUGH,” and has slapped sanctions atop the Putin regime.  Next, the European Union has severed air links to Russia.  Norway- another neutral nation- in a change of policy announced today that it’s going to begin shipping weapons to the Ukrainians.  Moving on, British Petroleum has dumped Russia even though they are taking a $25 billion write-off.   Meanwhile, as Russia’s economy begins a downward spiral due to their outrageous invasion of their neighbor to the south, the Moscow Stock Exchange will remain closed through Tuesday.

  19. 2022 Monday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster II- Regarding Joe Biden’s upcoming Usurper of the Union Address tomorrow night, Dick Morris says that “Joe Biden is going to LIE.”  Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, says that Joe Biden’s ‘state of the union address,’ aka the Usurper of the Union Address will avoid his far too many failures.  Next, a new McLaughlin poll says that ONLY 23-percent of Democratic voters want Joe Biden to run in 2024.  Wow.  (Interesting note: “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says he won’t be sending any of the Sunshine State’s National Guard troops to help secure the Usurper of the Union Address tomorrow night.  Who would?)
  20. 2022 Monday S: Joe Biden Regime News I- The Biden regime is urging ALL Americans to leave Russia ASAP and say that the lack of travel options due to many of the world’s nations severing air traffic ties between is limiting options for a quick escape.  Get out now.  Next, the U.S. is targeting Russia’s state-run banks with a new round of sanctions and slobbering Joe Biden is asking for an immediate aid package of $350 million military aid to Kyiv.  Folks, send them the money but please make sure none of the money finds its way into the back-pockets of the Biden crime family.
  21. 2022 Monday T: Joe Biden Regime News II- The United States has labeled 12 Russian United Nations diplomats ‘persona non grata’ and has given them until March 07 to get their butts out of the country.  Next, in a show of support to Joe Biden’s boss, Xi Jinping, he is sending former top U.S. defense officials to Taiwan to reassure them we are standing with them against Chi-Com aggression.  Meanwhile, mob mouthpiece, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that ‘yes, indeed, Joe Biden will address the inflation he has caused in his first ‘usurper of the union address’ tomorrow night.  Wow.

  23. 2022 Monday V: Political News II- Today is Day No. 6 of the American Freedom Truckers Convoy heading to Washington, D.C.  They are heading from Vinita, Oklahoma, to Sullivan, Missouri.   Next, Congressman Tom Tiffany, R-WI 7th congressional district, said today that the United States should be energy independent.
  24. 2022 Monday W: U.S. House of Representatives News I- Ahead of Joe Biden’s first Usurper of the Union Address tomorrow night, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi announces the removal of the mask mandate.  Very few people have answered their invitations to attend unless, of course, they are rabid left-wing losers unafraid of having their popularity ratings tied to the declining ‘president’s.’  Most people do not believe the mask mandate was EVER necessary.  Meanwhile, “Mumbles” is having her minions in the D.C. Police Department and among the Capitol Hill secret police to slap up Fort Pelosi again to prevent the American people from being anywhere near their nation’s capital.
  25. 2022 Monday X: U.S. Senate News I- A bill seeking to PROTECT abortion rights faces a dim future in the U.S. Senate.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, lampooned “Mumbles” Pelosi dropping mask mandates ahead of tomorrow night’s ‘usurper of the union address.’  It’s all been for show.

2021 Friday E: In a fit of outrage, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi forbids Representative Claudia Tenney, Republican- who just won NY-22 House race by 109 votes- from having her family present at her swearing in on Capitol Hill. Congresswoman Tenney’s son, a recent graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy and in uniform was deemed a “RISK” by the senile head of the House. What a national embarrassment.

  59. 2002 Tuesday: Iran Air Tours Flight 956 crashes into a mountain in Iran, killing 119 people aboard it.  Elsewhere, the trial of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milošević begins at the United Nations war crimes tribunal in The Hague.  Finally, Pakistan charged three men regarding the kidnapping of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl in Karachi.  The thugs beheaded the journalist.
  60. 2004 Thursday: San Francisco begins issuing marriage licenses to homosexual customers.  Meanwhile, Mattel announced that “Barbie” and “Ken” were breaking up.  The dolls had ‘met’ on the set of their first television commercial together in 1961.
  61. 2008 Tuesday: The race for the White House continues.  Illinois Senator Barack Obama wins the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia Democratic primaries which puts him in the lead over his closest rival, New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.  On the other side of the coin, Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, wins the GOP nominations in the same chunks of real estate.  Republicans are not thrilled with Senator McCain; it is what it is.  Elsewhere, Russia and the Ukraine settle a dispute over the debt owed by the latter to the former.  The Ukraine owes money to Gazprom for deliveries of natural gas.
  62. 2011 Saturday: Anti-government protesters in Yemen call for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down from power; he ruled the country since 1978.
  63. 2012 Sunday: At the Grammy Awards, Adele[viii], a British singer, wins awards for the Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year.  Meanwhile, the Greek people go berserk as the government okays austerity measures.  Portugal is having similar problems with 300,000 people taking to the streets in protest against their government.
  64. 2013 Tuesday: North Korea[ix] conducted its third underground nuclear test—the world needs to nuke these crazy bastards into submission!
  65. 2014 Wednesday: Twenty-eight years after Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos was ousted, the Philippine government recovers $29 million from Swiss accounts, bringing the total Marcos’ secret accounts now recovered and in government hands to $712 million.  Meanwhile, Syrian government forces and their Hezbollah allies link up to launch an assault on the ISIS-held Yabrud.
  66. 2015 Thursday: Ukraine and Russia negotiate a ceasefire with the support of Germany[x] and France; the agreement calls for an end to fighting, removal of large artillery from the sites of conflict, and greater independence for eastern Ukraine.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate confirms Ashton Carter as the 25th U.S. Secretary of Defense.
  67. 2016 Friday: To the delight of climate change scammers everywhere, Fiji becomes the first nation to ratify the UN climate deal[xi], the one signed in Paris in December 2015.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry announces that following a meeting of 17 foreign ministers from around the world in Munich, a ceasefire in Syria would be declared in one week, following the delivery of humanitarian supplies to the refugees huddling along the border with Turkey.
  68. 2017 Sunday: In Northern California, residents living around the Oroville Dam- 180,000- are ordered to immediately get the hell out as overflow from the spillways due to humongous rainfall threatens its stability and a possible collapse.  Thankfully, the dam withstood the torrent of water.  Elsewhere, the North Koreans fire an intercontinental ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan.  Of course, this causes alarm around the region.
  69. 2018 Monday:  Following widespread charges of allegations of sexual misconduct in Haiti and Chad, Oxfam deputy director Penny Laine Lawrence resigns the post of the British charity.  She apologizes profusely.  Great.  Tell it to the victims.  Meanwhile, trying to get things going, President Donald J. Trump sends his $4.4 trillion federal budget proposal for 2019 to the U.S. Congress.  Meanwhile, the president meets with several governors and big city mayors so he can lay out his $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill to get the American people back to work and to repair and improve the crumbling infrastructure of the nation.
  70. 2019 Tuesday: After 200 hours of testimony in a federal courtroom, a jury finds Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman guilty of all 10 federal crimes with which, they charged him.  Meanwhile, after a lengthy dispute with Greece, Macedonia changes its name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia.   Elsewhere, much to the delight of Democrats in the United States, Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro tells a BBC reporter that U.S. President Donald J. Trump is a white supremacist who is actively ‘warmongering’ against his country and says that the “Ku Klux Klan is running the White House.”  Now where could this ignorant POS have gotten these comments?  The Democratic Party and their allies in the Fake News Media?  We’d lay our money on this!
  71. 2020 Wednesday: As the coronavirus outbreak continues to worsen around the planet, Tonga forbids four cruise ships from docking while in Cambodia, the government there says it’s okay for the MS Westerdam to disembark more than 2,000 after several other nations in the region turned the cruise ship away.  Elsewhere, all manner of other nations are canceling all manner of events and happenings out of fear of the rapidly spreading Wuhan Flu.    Elsewhere, Democratic 2020 presidential candidate and former governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick suspends his brief campaign. 
  72. 2021 Friday:  Day 24 of the Biden Regime: the border policies of the Biden administration (or lack of them, we should say) are coming under increased fire as hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are flowing north through Mexico and attempting to storm the southern border.  NO one is checking the dregs of the Third World for the infamous Chi-Vi.  Good going, ‘Usurper Joe!’  Speaking of the Biden regime, his family is coming under increased fire from people on all side of the aisle over his claims that family members will have no place within his administration when in fact, they are enriching themselves like gorging leeches on a floundering swimmer in the Amazon River.  Speaking of Joe Biden, he is attempting to blame his predecessor for his inability to roll out vaccines with which to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  You go, Joe, you go!  Finally, Joe Biden announces he is going to permit in 25,000 refugees immediately (among whom we suspect will be foreign intelligence agents seeking to target U.S. citizens opposing their countries).   Joe Biden also cuts off all emergency funding for the southern border wall.
  73. 2021 Friday A: Speaking of the Biden administration, a now capsizing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, D-NY, is deflecting criticism of his murder of the ill, the infirm, the disabled, and the mentally ill in rest homes onto the back of the Biden crew.  Wow.  How quickly the maggots turn!  Speaking of New York Democrats, Dems across the state are being hammered with the tragic loss of life their inept at best and criminal at worst policies have done to the citizens of the Empire State.  Regarding the Chinese Virus, more than 8 million Americans slipped into poverty in the second half of last year thanks to the Wuhan Flu.  “Pro-China Joe” said he had a plan- where is the plan, Joe?
  74. 2021 Friday B: The Trump defense team is blasting major holes in the House managers’ flawed arguments showing film clips the Democrats edited to make Trump appear a criminal by showing the films in their entirety as well as innumerable clips of Democrats talking about violence, threatening violence, joking about violence (man, Kamala’s laugh is worse than Hillary’s and that is pretty bad, folks), and guaranteeing violence.  Republicans have met with the defense team in preparation for the devastation coming the way of the Democrats in the U.S. Senate today.  We contend it’s going to be extremely difficult for the RINOs to vote to convict ex-President Trump just as it will for several Democrats whose allegiance is to the Constitution of the United States and not to Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.
  75. 2021 Friday C: The People’s Republic of China bans BBC World News from within its borders.  We thought you had nothing to hide, Chairman Xi?   Meanwhile, Russia threatens to cut off ties with the European Union if they impose any additional economic sanctions upon the country over the arrest of Alexei Navalny and protesters favorable to him.  That means natural gas supplies you get from the Russkies could be terminated.  You probably miss Donald J. Trump by now, don’t you?  Elsewhere, New Zealand announces plans to roll out vaccines for the Chi-Vi beginning next week.  Finally, we learn today that the Biden regime’s energy policies favor foreign nations over the country he was supposedly elected to lead.  First, loss of high-paying energy jobs to Canada and to China.  Second, energy independence is thrown out the window in favor of importing oil from OPEC, Russia, Venezuela, and other places inimical to U.S. interests.  Third and final, stifling U.S. energy production benefits Chairman Xi, Vladimir Putin, the Grand Ayatollah, Burisma, and Nicolas Maduro.  Good going, Joe.  Finally, “Pro-China Joe” is being blasted for repealing a Trump executive order that prohibited purchase of and installation of foreign energy equipment in the American power grid.
  76. 2021 Friday D: Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Democrat, signals she will oppose the Biden administration’s demand for a $15 per hour minimum wage.  Meanwhile, in New Hampshire, a hand recount shows that in the 7th congressional district, a place in which, DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS MACHINES AND SMARTMATIC SOFTWARE WAS EMPLOYED, an average of 300 votes was deducted from every statewide or national Republican candidate and flipped to the Democrats.  Yet, both of these disingenuous companies- Dominion and Smartmatic- swear there’s ‘nothing to see here.’  The entire 2020 election cycle is (ALLEGEDLY) marred by these two crap companies and their Democrat bosses.    Elsewhere, the North Dakota Senate is considering a bill that prohibits trannys from participating in scholastic sports.  (Note- Chef Elmer on Monday is going to make an argument that a third category of school sports should be created- Transsexual Sports.  This would make both boys and girls competing in sports happy and it would acknowledge the greater increase of students who are confused about their sexual identity and who can then compete with one another fairly).
  77. 2021 Friday E: In a fit of outrage, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi forbids Representative Claudia Tenney, Republican- who just won NY-22 House race by 109 votes- from having her family present at her swearing in on Capitol Hill.  Congresswoman Tenney’s son, a recent graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy and in uniform was deemed a “RISK” by the senile head of the House.  What a national embarrassment.  The Speaker has National Guard units all over Washington, D.C., and yet, she won’t permit a uniformed member from entering the House?  What a disgrace.  Next, a House committee plans to give U.S. airlines $14 billion in COVID-19 relief aid.  Meanwhile, dating app Bumble surges in its IPO in its first day of trading.  Elsewhere, L’Oréal sales shoot up to hit $95 billion in Q4 2020 due to a 62-percent spike in online sales.  Sales in the People’s Republic of (Communist) China saw an increase of 27-percent.  Finally, a judge declines to issue both a new warrant and a jacked-up bail amount for patriot Kyle Rittenhouse, accused of murdering two Antifa thugs who were trying to murder him.  A clear case of SELF DEFENSE.  
  78. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 108,043,938 confirmed cases, +538,271, 2,377,988, confirmed deaths, +20,513, and 60,504,739 confirmed recoveries, +368,271.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,716,018 confirmed cases, up 176,801 from yesterday’s reporting, 483,695 confirmed deaths, UP 10,472, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 24 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 154,300 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  79. 2021 Friday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,460,320 confirmed cases, 46,002 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,370 confirmed cases, 425 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 329,170 confirmed cases, 4,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: New Jersey- currently, they have 740,016 confirmed cases, 22,393 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 718,746 confirmed cases, 5,304 confirmed deaths, and 651,522 confirmed recoveries.     
  80. 2021 Friday H: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,748 cases, +14 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,292 confirmed recoveries, +825 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Rodent-eating scum. 
  81. 2021 Friday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,458.40, UP 27.70 points (+0.88%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,095.47, UP 69.70 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,934.83, UP 18.45 points (+0.47%). We reiterate what we mentioned last week: markets are UP because they believe ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden is going to borrow TRILLIONS from the Chi-Coms.  We still predict that by June 2021, the triple whammy of a $15 minimum wage, ongoing pandemic politics, skyrocketing energy and food prices, and massive illegal aliens numbers are going to tank the economy worse than 1929.  Bad economic times are on the horizon because the economy cannot handle multiple hits of Chi-Vi, a jacked-up minimum wage that is going to cost American workers jobs while allowing employers to hire ILLEGAL ALIENS under the table and providing them NO Obamacare.  It is going to be extremely ugly, and we have a ‘president’ sitting around spanking the Toobin in the White House.
  82. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,823.20 per troy oz., -3.60 (-0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $27.33 per troy ounce, +0.28 (+1.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.38 per troy oz, +18.70 (+1.51%) while the price of COPPER is $3.80 per pound, +0.01 (+0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,393.00 per troy oz, +39.50 (+1.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.73 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.44%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.52 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.
  83. 2021 Friday K: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Drawing #1633: 05, 14, 24, 25, 27, and Mega 14.  Out of 74,680 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $2,881,341.
  84. 2021 Friday L: Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says she ‘hopes that Joe Biden understands that the Chi-Coms are not our friends.’  This after “Pro-China Joe” schmoozed with Xi Jinping on the Chi-Coms earlier in the week, reportedly for two hours.  Who believes this?   Next, Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that in regard to the bogus impeachment trial occurring in the U.S. Senate, i.e., the Stalinist Show Trial Extraordinaire, “Trump’s lawyers have won.”  We concur.   Trump’s lawyers are rating higher performance marks today as their video presentation blew the Democrats’ highly produced and doctored video clips- provided to them by ANTIFA, no less, look like the steaming pile of fecal matter that it is.  We expect many of these Democrats are going to lose their seats in next year’s Mid-Term Elections.  We will work to make it so.
  85. 2021 Friday M: Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, his State Department has scheduled a ‘racism is America’s number one national security threat.’  For God’s sake, because when things get better and people are moving on, you pull us all back into the cesspool and dirty everyone, black, white, brown, red, yellow, and every shade in between.  Stop it already!  Elsewhere, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece tells him that ‘governors and mayors need $350 billion in Xi Jinping Bat Flu relief’ as without it, dimwits such as Gavin Newsom, Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Larry Hogan, and other Democrat and RINO putzes will go under and probably see their states flip from BLUE to RED.  Finally, Jen Psaki says she suspended an aide for ‘one-week sans pay’ for having told an inquiring White House reporter asking about his relationship with a fellow journalist.  Apparently, aide T. J. Ducklo told the female reporter, “I will destroy you for asking this question.”  When Psaki was asked whether the president knew about it or not, she said, “NO.  I acted on my own.”  Joe Biden did say anyone belittling anyone in his administration would ‘be fired on the spot’ in a very Donald Trump-like moment.
  86. 2021 Friday N: Another Lincoln Project founder bites the dust: Steve Schmidt.  All of these guys have problems and character flaws, covering up for pervert John Weaver who has been sleeping with 14-year-old boys.  What the hell is wrong with these RINO sickos?  More to come on this story, folks.  We learn that $50 million of the $90 million received by these scumbags went to businesses associated with said scumbags.  Once again, we have another self-enrichment scheme and lawsuits are piling up, soon to hit this bogus group of disgruntled losers.  Wow.  What will be the next shoe to drop?  George Conway?  
  87. 2021 Friday O: New York Attorney General Leticia James calls for a dismissal of the National Rifle Association’s Chapter 11 Bankruptcy claiming it’s in “bad faith.”  Meanwhile, strong defender of free and fair elections, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton finds himself smeared with allegations of ‘trading favors in exchange for a home remodel and a job for his mistress.’  Sounds like something Democrats do.  Moving on, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax a couple of things: first, the Trump impeachment trial is little more than a ‘joke.’  Next- and we have been expecting this although not as early as it’s come- Nikki Haley slams Trump, belittles him and says he’s not the ‘leader of the party.’  To this, Mr. Grenell dismisses her comments as nothing and says, ‘Trump is indeed the leader of the party.’  We expect that she- like other RINOs- will vie for the 2024 nomination of the GOP, expecting that once again, Republicans having no alternative will vote for ‘the lesser of two evils.’  Not so.  No more.  Nikki, find out at your own risk.
  88. 2021 Friday P: The World Health Organization now is backing away from its absolute denial of the Wuhan Virus coming out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  We guess they are feeling the heat.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms’ malign influence, Disney (NO one should see the movie, “Mulan”) is remaining mum on the growing news of systemic rapes of Uighur Muslim women in the ‘paradise province’ of Xinjiang, western China, a place where every manufacturer lacking a conscience has slave labor making their products.  This is where Disney filmed “Mulan.”  The NBA, yep, they are total scum, and we are big proponents of the National Basketball Association relocating their entire operation to communist China, seeing as how they love the Chi-Coms as much as they do.  
  89. 2021 Friday Q: Elsewhere, things continue going from bad to worse for New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Can we expect to see this POS in an orange jumpsuit anytime soon?  Speaking of the notorious Beijing Bug sweeping the world, California is trying to correct its myriad mistakes and is begging for vaccines to arrive in the state.  Governor Gavin Newsom is such an inept fool (he’s Nancy Pelosi’s beloved nephew) that there is nothing he can do to save himself.  Instead of putting $4 billion into vaccine procurement, he’s putting it into the money-laundering California High-Speed Rail boondoggle.  WTF?
  90. 2022 Saturday: ¿Qué locuras pueden ocurrir hoy?  Quédate y descúbrelo con el resto de nosotros.  Nadie sabe lo que esta administración presidencial está arruinando hoy…

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY FEBRUARY 12, 2022, BLOG POST #4,428

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

Friday, February 12, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

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

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


Saturday, February 12, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012.  We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

[ii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iv] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[vii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.  Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too.  Perhaps one day we will.

[viii] Present the music of Adele one day?  If we are still around in 15-20 years, we just might.

[ix] God created the neutron bomb for wiping out maggots like these scum.  President Trump: LIGHT THEM UP!

[x] Does anyone ever question WHY Germany has become Russia’s bitch?

[xi] Climate change is a hoax, the way the Democrats and liberals around the world present it.  The climate is always changing but the solar activity- abundance or lack of sunspots and solar flares- is the driving force and it changes the climate on every planet in our Solar System.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

¡Tienes que irte, maldito Joe!

  71. 2020 Saturday: NBC reports today that as the Chinese Virus continues enveloping parts of the world, the first two foreigners to die of lab-engineered virus in Wuhan- one Japanese and one American- did so today.  This does not count the numbers of communist Chinese or Hong Kong citizens who have died from this evil crap.  Elsewhere, U.S. and Afghan security forces holding joint exercises end up fighting with one another leaving between 4-6 Americans and at least 6 Afghans dead.  Investigators are trying to find out if the Taliban, al-Qaida, or ISIS infiltrated human trash into the ranks of the Afghan troops.

  73. 2021 Monday A: With re-impeachment looming tomorrow, Republicans plan on showing how it is ‘unconstitutional.’  Folks, impeaching someone is NOT a president and without the chief justice of the United States Supreme Court calling balls and strikes, it is little more than politics, a circus, a load of steaming hog hooey.  Everyone participating in this charade must be removed from office in upcoming elections.   Elsewhere, Missouri freshman Congresswoman Cori Bush sides with rioting inmates over law enforcement and the rule of law.  Recall this dimwit.   Speaking of the Democrat losers, folks- there are photos of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi walking around metal detectors in the halls of Congress.  Someone hit her with the $5,000 fine she imposed on her members for committing such an egregious act.   Moreover, speaking of Democrat losers, the little dimwit Senator Chris Murphy, D-Connecticut, says, “There is NO comparison between the words of lunatic Congresswoman “Gasoline Maxine” Waters of California and those of Donald J. Trump.  Hence why you are rated among the stupider members of the U.S. Senate, Mr. Murphy.
  74. 2021 Monday B: Biden press secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki dismisses questions about impending job losses over the coming raising of the federal minimum wage of $15 per hour.  She laughed it off.  Speaking of such idiocy, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen blows off fears of coming double-digit inflation due to the oncoming $1.9 trillion Biden stimulus plan as well as near-zero interest rates.  Folks, we point it out every day- expect the country to be in the tank by mid-summer thanks to (1) a jacked up minimum wage; (2) pandemic politics; and (3) massive numbers of illegal aliens who are low-to-no-skilled taking American jobs and receiving wages under the table.  Someone else who is unhappy with the Biden administration is AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka, someone whom we thought was going to endorse Donald J. Trump.  He is unhappy about the all the job losses that have already occurred under the 46th president as well as the millions to come.  We told you so, Mr. Trumka.  You could have supported President Trump and continued seeing your members enjoy rising wages, better benefits, and increased prosperity.  
  75. 2021 Monday C: In foreign news and issues, Joe Biden’s claims of being ‘tough on communist China are met with skepticism, if not outright laughter.  He will do nothing.  Next, Joe Biden’s stupid border policies are causing massive caravans heading to the U.S. borders and thousands of illegal aliens flooding into the U.S.  Time to start laying minefields along that border, folks.  Meanwhile, following the arrest of one of its press corps in communist China, Australia calls other reporters home.  NOW.   Elsewhere, after receiving the Sputnik V Chi-Vi vaccine from Russia, the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei warns Iranians citizens to ‘avoid those who have gotten the vaccines because they’ve become homosexuals.’  Say what?  Vladimir Putin, what the hell are YOU doing to Iran?   Finally, Saudi Arabia has shot down four recent weaponized drones crossing into its airspace from Yemen where the Houthi rebels are running amok.  Neutron bombs, folks, that’s the answer for the Houthis.
  76. 2021 Monday D: Senator Lindsey Graham, labeled “Lady G” by press secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- a homosexual slur- urges the Biden administration NOT to abandon all of his predecessor’s foreign policies just because you don’t like their creator.  Lindsey, Biden is getting rid of EVERYTHING.  You know it, we know it, hell, everyone knows it.  Speaking of RINO senators, Alabama Senator Richard Shelby says he ‘won’t seek another term’ which leaves it open for Jeff Sessions to come back- again.  Elsewhere, following a weekend in which two were killed and 20 shot in Chicago, Windy City Mayor Lori Lightfoot announces that Chi-Town and the teachers’ union have reached an agreement with which to reopen the schools and to get the little tykes back into class.    Finally, Texas Republican Congressman Ron Wright, died from a combination of cancer and the ‘VID;’ we know the COVID-19 will be the cause of death.
  77. 2021 Monday E: Two GOP congressmen have offered up the Oversight Members and Relatives Act- the OMAR Act- because members of congress such as Ilhan Omar, D-MN, and ‘Gasoline Maxine’ Waters have poured millions of dollars from their campaign coffers into the pockets of their family members.  Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-WI, and Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-WI, said it was time for an act such as this.  We agree.  Enough with all these scoundrels enriching themselves and their families at the taxpayers’ expense.  Speaking of self-enrichment, Dr. Vivek Murthy, Joe Biden’s pick for surgeon-general has made hundreds of thousands of dollars in speaking fees from- wait, you guessed it- BIG HEALTHCARE.  Wow.  Does it ever end?   Meanwhile, Tampa Bay’s Democrat Mayor Jane Castor says she is ‘appalled that citizens of her community were without masks during the Super Bowl and that law enforcement will identify the offenders and will do something about it once the scumbags are identified.’  Wow.  Another wannabe Gretchen Whitmer on the loose…
  78. 2021 Monday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 106,314,695 confirmed cases, +300,0472 2,320,720, confirmed deaths, +6,928, and 59,303,299 confirmed recoveries, +231,945.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,319,269 confirmed cases, up 67,092 from yesterday’s reporting, 468,379 confirmed deaths, UP 1,040, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- no update in more than two weeks- what’s up with that? NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 138,473 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  79. 2021 Monday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,417,099 confirmed cases, 44,159 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,468 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,947 confirmed cases, 4,531 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Pennsylvania: currently, they have 875,557 confirmed cases, 22,493 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 696,528 confirmed cases, 5,171 confirmed deaths, and 619,100 confirmed recoveries.

  81. 2021 Monday I: We said it earlier today, but the Congressional Budget Office announced today that Joe Biden’s $15-hour minimum wage is going to cost the country another 1.4 million jobs- on the low end- once it goes into effect.  An AP Poll says that just 16-percent of Americans think U.S. democracy is in decent shape.  Another 45-percent said the country is not functioning as it should be while 80-percent said the rule of law, functioning judicial system, free and fair elections,
  82. 2021 Monday J: Meanwhile, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says, ‘Joe Biden’s transgender rules is a war on women.’  Amen.   Next, POS Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger is launching an investigation into that EVIL-EVIL-EVIL Trump for him trying to get this wonderful public servant to throw the election in his favor.  Whoa.  Friends, after listening to hours of people testifying before the Georgia Senate, the secretary of state should be doing time in the hoosegow.   Finally, New York prosecutors have dropped all charges against pardoned Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort- and they kept this poor man in solitary confinement.  EVIL.
  83. 2021 Monday K: There is talk that communist China and its thug leader Xi Jinping could face charges before the International Court for committing genocide against its Uighur minority, people who are imprisoned in concentration camps being made into ‘worthy citizens’ of Mao Zedong’s horrible hellhole.  A British legal firm working on behalf of human rights releases reams of evidence showing that what the Chi-Coms are doing in Xinjiang Province to their Muslim minorities is a disguised genocide of a thriving people.  Elsewhere, reports suggest that Kim Jong Un built up his nuclear weapons arsenal and missile systems with which to deliver said atomic weapons during the course of last year.  Uncle Joe Biden, what are YOU going to do about this threat?   Meanwhile, Fox News host Tucker Carlson reports that the Biden administration is not going to deport illegal aliens convicted of violent crimes including sex crimes.  And this senile old POS wants to be president of ALL the American people or so he promised.   Moreover, Tucker Carlson reports that illegal aliens are being dumped into U.S. neighborhoods without even being tested for COVID-19.  We have said this before, when the bodies start dropping, don’t be shocked.   Finally, whereas the U.S. was apprehending 1,200 illegal aliens at the border each day last year, we are now seeing more than 3,000 illegals trying to enter the country daily.  We say minefields, 50-caliber MG emplacements, and miles and miles and miles of concertina razor wire to augment the existing fence.  (Note- some of us support seeding the Rio Grande with baby alligators…)
  84. 2021 Monday L: Niccole Wallace at MSNBC believes that targeted drone strikes should be used against conservative Republicans in the United States who may not believe the 2020 Presidential Election was remotely fair.  I guess since most of us believe it was a load of festering crap, we had better start watching the skies overhead.  We already have more chem trails above our neighborhoods than ever before and NO one ever explains their purpose.  WTF is up?
  85. 2021 Monday M: In Henderson, Nevada, original Supreme (1959-2021)- Mary Wilson- from cardiovascular disease on this date; she was 76.

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We offered the music of this famed West Coast band- the Grass Roots- beginning on Thursday, 06-February-2014 through Saturday, 22-February-2014.  We hope you will seek their music out by visiting whatever site you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.

[ii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[iv] In an interesting note, many believe the coup in Turkey was engineered by Erdogan to get rid of his political enemies by engineering a coup d’ gras against him.  In 2021 in the United States, following a False Flag operation in which, Antifa-led mobs stormed Capitol Hill and ‘terrified’ lawmakers, the Democrats are doing the same going after every Trump supporter.  The only people in attendance at ‘Joe Biden’s inauguration’ were 27,000 National Guard members.  The Democrats who always say, “WALLS DON’T WORK,” put up walls all over Washington, D.C. and as of today, there are still 7,000 Guardsmen on scene protecting “Usurper Joe.”

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

25. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JANUARY 25, 2022

2021 Monday: First of all, it’s official: Janet Yellen is now the first female U.S. Treasury secretary. Congratulations. It really matters what is or what is NOT between your legs. We are proud. Next, the LEFT is celebrating ‘President’ Joe Biden’s ‘Catholicism’ which is strange because the man is a founding member of the Pro-Death Movement (aka Pro-Choice). IF Pope Francis were not such a leftist himself, he’d excommunicate the Satan-worshipping ‘46th president.’

  58. 2017 Wednesday: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto says there’s ‘no way that Mexico is going to pay for ANY PART of the border wall between Mexico and the United States,’ the one promised by President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of the 45th president, he signs two executive orders, one that strips funding away from sanctuary cities and states and the other to begin construction on the wall that Mexico ‘won’t pay for.’
  59. 2018 Thursday: The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists move the Doomsday Clock[v] by 30 seconds to 2 minutes to midnight, the closest it’s been since the 1950s.  The group is a left-wing group, and they are afraid of President Donald J.

  60. 2019 Friday: After 27 years of struggle- following the dissolution of Yugoslavia into its core parts, the Greek Parliament votes on whether to accept the Republic of Macedonia- a name with which, they took umbrage seeing as how Alexander was born in Macedonia- Greek Macedonia- and by a vote of 153-146 that the Republic of Macedonia changing its name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia is acceptable and can occur.  There you go.
  61. 2020 Saturday:  Comrade Xi Jinping calls for a special meeting of the Chi-Com Politburo where he discusses the spread of COVID-19 and the danger it poses to the people of China.   Of course, it originated in the Wuhan biomedical/biowarfare laboratory (although they would seek to blame the U.S. Army at a later date for bringing it into their country- a bogus claim but such are communists).   Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of State orders its consulate staffers to begin leaving communist China ASAP.
  62. 2021 Monday:  First of all, it’s official: Janet Yellen is now the first female U.S. Treasury secretary.  Congratulations.  It really matters what is or what is NOT between your legs.  We are proud.  Next, the LEFT is celebrating ‘President’ Joe Biden’s ‘Catholicism’ which is strange because the man is a founding member of the Pro-Death Movement (aka Pro-Choice).  IF Pope Francis were not such a leftist himself, he’d excommunicate the Satan-worshipping ‘46th president.’  Up next, ‘President’ Joe Biden ends the Trump era ban on trannys serving in the military.   Following that, ‘President’ Joe Biden steals Donald Trump’s ‘make American, buy American’ program and remakes it as his own.  Plagiarist to the end there, Joe.
  63. 2021 Monday A: In the Golden State in the city of San (“Lord when are you going to destroy me like You did Sodom and Gomorrah?”) Francisco, taxpayers are going to continue paying the upscale hotel fees for housing the homeless until September 2021 at the earliest.  And Governor Gavin Newsom why’s there now over 1 million signatures on his recall petition.  Speaking of our brave governor, he’s ‘seen the light and is rolling back stay-at-home-orders.’  Too late, Smiler, too late.
  64. 2021 Monday B: ‘President’ Joe Biden has decided to maintain his predecessor’s travel bans on numerous countries due to the rampaging COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus, and has added South Africa to the list.  Sounds ‘racist’ to us, there, ‘Mr. President.’  Speaking of the ‘usurper-in-chief,’ he’s facing bi-partisan pushback on his massive porkulus stimulus bill which is good.  $1.9 trillion is way too much money, especially when one considers the money is flowing east from Beijing to Washington, D.C., to pay for this plus the fact ILLEGAL ALIENS are getting stimulus checks, too.  Meanwhile, ‘President’ Joe Biden announces he is going to erase all student loan debt.  That is going to lead to loss of still more jobs and lenders going broke.
  65. 2021 Monday C:  Strange things are occurring in Washington, D.C., what with the Washington Monument suddenly going dark.  Investigators are investigating.  Meanwhile, the Democrats are ordering reviews of all police departments and military and National Guard units to root out ‘right-wing radicals.’  My, my, it’s okay to be Antifa, Occupy, BLM, or even the U.S. branch of Mao’s Red Guards but conservatives?  Oh, no, never.  Speaking of trash rioting in the streets, Tacoma, Washington, now is aflame thanks to cadres of Chi-Com-trained Antifa thugs running amok in the streets.  Governor Inslee, how about calling out the National Guard and squashing these insects.  Finally, to continue the aura that Washington, D.C., is under siege from Trump supporters, 7,000 National Guard troops- the ones who have been purified by the left- will remain in the city until sometime in March, AFTER the bogus second impeachment trial of an ex-president ends.
  66. 2021 Monday D: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s boss, Xi Jinping, warns the U.S. against an ‘outmoded cold war mentality.’  Okay.  Meanwhile, as Russia continues rounding up thousands of anti-Putin supporters of Alexei Navalny, the ‘Biden administration’ makes weak demands of the Kremlin to ‘let these people go.’  Putin does not even meet the U.S. ambassador in person and even worse, tells ‘President’ Biden NOT to meddle in the affairs of Russia.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, a recent study shows that the world’s ice is melting at a higher rate than it was 30 years ago; yet liberals continue buying beachfront homes.  What’s up with that hypocrisy?
  67. 2021 Monday E: COVID-19 pays good, folks: Dr. Tony Fauci, darling of the American left, pulls in the highest annual salary in the federal government: $417.6 thousand dollars per year.  How many times has this goof ball been wrong?  We’ve lost count.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, an ABC ‘poll’ says that 69-percent of Americans approve of ‘President’ Joe Biden’s handling of the COVID-19 crisis.  What has he done that Trump didn’t do?  Biden says in his first 100 days, he was going to get 100 million doses out to the American people.  Now, he’s jacking it up to 150 million doses.  We shall see.  News reports are saying that there are many unexplained deaths surrounding people who have gotten the virus.  Not good.   Meanwhile, FEMA says it will reimburse SOME of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu’s costs to the states.  (Pssst- don’t reimburse Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo because that man is responsible for a genocide among seniors and the chronically ill in the Empire State).  Finally, while COVID-19 runs amok, the billionaires continue growing wealthier while the middle and lower classes continue growing poorer.  All by leftist design, social engineering, and pro-Chi-Com politics.
  68. 2021 Monday F: The U.S. Supreme Court ends anticorruption cases launched against former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of the high court, Chief Justice John Roberts says he will NOT attend the ‘second impeachment sham trial,’ which leaves the Democrats to elevate old fogey Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to the dais in an unconstitutional trial.  Regarding impeachment, the Epoch Times says there are 29 GOP senators who are anti-impeachment and will make their presence known once the scam commences.   Also, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH, is rounding up a rapid-response squad to counter Democrat moves to impeach- a second, illegal time- former President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is filing a countersuit against seven Democratic senators who tried to tie him and Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, to the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6 who tried to get him, and his colleague expelled from the upper chamber.  Finally, Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says he won’t seek re-election.  
  69. 2021 Monday G: ‘President’ Joe Biden says he’s going to ‘expedite getting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.  Look, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ (we mean ‘President Joe’) why don’t you make a new bill, the $25 bill?  We have pushed that for a long, long time- since Barack Hussein Obama was ‘president.’  That makes more sense.  Meanwhile, the Instagram scandal over ‘President’ Joe Biden followers grows- hardly anyone is following the so-called 46th president on the White House feed so Instagram has been charged with forcing all users to follow ‘President’ Joe Biden’s White House feed.  Speaking of shams and scams, Twitter has launched a program called “Birdwatch” that will monitor misinformation on its site and online.  They are going to bust all manner of leftists spreading disinformation and misinformation.  Speaking of social media, the Trump Family regains some of their social media followers.   Rupert Murdoch slams liberal media for its ‘awful WOKE orthodoxy’ and yet, Fox News worked to defeat President Trump and to put a usurper in his place.  Shame.  Elsewhere, former UN Ambassador says the ‘media bears partial responsibility for some of the divisions’ affecting our country.
  70. 2021 Monday H: Mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, Democrat, says, “New York City must restore its value.”  Question is- is it too late?  Next, famed attorney Alan Dershowitz says he will America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani to the ‘depths of his soul’ as the corrupt Dominion Voting System-election-stealing company out of a now hostile Canada seeks to sue the living bejezzus out of Mr. Giuliani over his battle to expose the Canadian scum for exactly what they are: criminals (or so we allege).  In other news, Budweiser says it’s NOT going to spend any money on commercials for the Super Bowl on February 7.   Meanwhile, Montana passes four bills limiting ABORTION.  Congratulations!
  71. 2021 Monday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,655,985 confirmed cases, +599,649, 2,138,251, confirmed deaths, +12,324, and 54,961,829 confirmed recoveries, +316,036.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,501,479 confirmed cases, up 127,128 from yesterday’s reporting, 425,429 confirmed deaths, UP 1,638, and 11,166,132 confirmed recoveries, UP 35,702.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,200,931 confirmed cases, 37,349 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 (sill the same as it was a week ago- something is going on in Honolulu) confirmed cases, 342 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 304,617 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Maine: currently, they have 37,046 confirmed cases, 547 confirmed deaths, and 12,245 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 606,365 confirmed cases, 4,498 confirmed deaths, and 529,834 confirmed recoveries.   Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, MRNA says its Chi-Vi vaccine will protect against ALL variants.  Wow.  A miracle drug.

  74. 2021 Monday L: DAY SIX OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to find out what else ‘President’ Joe Biden is up to today.  Hmmm, his ‘boss’ House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she of drooping Botox-drenched face, walked the Article of Impeachment against ex- (the REAL) President Donald J. Trump to the U.S. Senate where the obsequious, knuckle-dragging Senate Majority Leader Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer received it.  Impeachment proceedings to commence the day following Super Bowl LV.   Look, “Botox Nancy,” you are 10 seats away from losing control of the House.  In the Senate, we expect Raphael Warnock and Mark Kelly will be gone in 2022, seeing as how they were ‘winners’ of special elections in states where the state GOP leadership worked on behalf of Democrats.
  75. 2021 Monday M: Acting U.S. Treasury Secretary Andy Baukol stepped down from office on this date.  He served under President Joseph R. Biden Jr., from January 20, 2021, until today. 
  76. 2022 Tuesday: Stick around, friends, we will discover whatever the heck is occurring today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Record labels being what they are, Sandy Denny’s label slapped together a second Fotheringay album years after her death.  Here is what said regarding the first effort: amazing vocalist Sandy Denny bolted the band to form a short-lived group, Fotheringay, a band we will cover because of her and Steeleye Span which we most likely won’t, concerned they may bear little to no interest for many of our readers even though they have a lengthy discography.  I guess we shall see.  Ah well, Fotheringay released their one and only album while Sandy was still alive, the eponymous “Fotheringay” that came out on June 28, 1970, and featured not only Ms. Denny, but future husband, Trevor Lucas (guitars, basses, harmonicas, and vocals), Jerry Donahue (lead guitar, vocals), Pat Donaldson (bass/vocals), Gerry Conway (Drums), and Linda Thompson and Todd Lloyd (vocals).  Thus, we now have “Fotheringay 2,” released on September 30, 2008.  If you love the English folk music the way we do as performed by Fairport Convention, Led Zeppelin’s acoustic material, the Strawbs, and other similar bands, this is an album that your ears should investigate as it does have its moments.  Please, seek it out, give it a listen, and see if it’s right for you- we think you will be glad that you did.

Monday, January 25, 2021, Today in History:  

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011.  Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.

[ii] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[iii] Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is little more than a murderous thug who should have been droned in the same way we droned Gen. Qassim Soleimani, the terrorist POS who ran the Quds Force until Donald Trump wiped him out.

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

[v] The Bulletin of Atomic Scientists’ Doomsday Clock is a left-wing way to terrorize the citizens of the world whenever a conservative or Republican is president of the United States.  Pay no attention to these scumbags.
