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

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

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

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

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

[iv] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

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

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

[vii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

  48. 2007 Wednesday: Tony Blair resigns as British prime minister, a position he had held since 1997.  Elsewhere, things are going from bad to worse in Iran as protesters take to the streets in Tehran angry over the rationing of gasoline in an oil-rich nation as well as rising inflation.  Drag the mullahs out, hang from construction cranes.  (Note- hanging people from construction cranes in Islamist Iran is one of their favorite pastimes).
  49. 2008 Friday: Bill Gates resigns from Microsoft to devote his energies to his charity work.  Elsewhere, as a show of good faith, the North Koreans destroy the cooling tower at the Yongbyon Scientific Nuclear Research Center.  Things are dire in the country, people are starving, and the leadership doesn’t want to end up like the Ceausescu Family following the collapse of communism in the early 1990s.
  50. 2009 Saturday: The Taliban claim credit for an attack in the Pakistani-administered portion of Kashmir that kills 2 soldiers going about their business.  Meanwhile, after a 10-month breakup over Russia’s aggression in Georgia, Russia and NATO agree to restore diplomats.   There was hope in the world back then, real hope that maybe ALL of Europe might find a way to unite with one another.  What the hell happened?  NATO’s continued encirclement of the former Soviet Union and the making of modern Russia into a bogeyman.
  51. 2010 Sunday: In Matam, Senegal, all hell breaks out at a 2010 FIFA World Cup soccer match leading to the deaths of at least 11 people and numerous injuries to loads of others.  All in the name of soccer, folks, all in the name of soccer.  Elsewhere, in northern Pakistan, military jets light up a Taliban compound blowing 14 people to hang with Allah sooner than any of them planned while leaving at least another eight messed up in one way or another.  Excellent work, boys, outstanding work, you frigging dimwits.

  53. 2012 Wednesday: After negotiations with creditors fail, the California city of Stockton files for bankruptcy protection, making it the largest city in the U.S. to do so.  Elsewhere, as things continue going from bad to worse in Syria, President Bashar al-Assad declares a state of war now exists in his country as rampaging mobs begin pouring into the capital city of Damascus.   As time passes, global leaders will demand that President Assad must go yet, he never goes.  World leaders go and he is still there.
  54. 2013 Thursday: China’s president, Xi Jinping, and South Korean President Park Geun-hye meet for four days of talks aimed at reducing tensions on the Korean Peninsula— why did no one invite the North Koreans. Elsewhere, a federal grand jury issues a 30-count formal accusation against surviving Boston bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  (Note- they should have shot this POS dead the moment they found him hiding in the boat).
  55. 2014 Friday: Bobby Womack, outstanding vocalist and songwriter died at the age of 70.  Elsewhere, Human Rights Watch announces that the ISIS thugs have murdered at least 160 POWS in ISIS-overrun city of Tikrit, Iraq.  It’s what these murdering scumbags do- behead their captives which is why napalm would do one hell of a job of eliminating the vermin.
  56. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, the Greek Parliament votes in favor of holding a referendum on July 5th regarding whether the country should accept reforms in exchange for continued bailouts; current bailouts expire on June 30th, the day that a $1.8 billion debt payment is due.  In Phoenix, Arizona, Chris Squire—famed bassist with the British rock band, Yes[v], —lost his battle with leukemia on this date; he was 67 years old.
  57. 2016 Monday: Once again demonstrating their anthesis towards the American people, a short-handed U.S. Supreme Court strikes down a Texas abortion law 5-3.  Elsewhere, the ISIS thugs carry their criminal activity north from Syria into southern Lebanon where they assault a peaceful village of Qaa.  In the resulting mayhem, the jihadists kill at least six poor souls and injure another 13 before being driven back into war-torn Syria.
  58. 2017 Tuesday: According to Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook has crossed the 2 billion users’ plateau.  Boy, George Orwell would have loved this!  Meanwhile, the European Union SLAMS Google for unfair competition practices and hands them a bill for $2.7 billion.  Boy, that will teach that worthless POS Sundar Pichai!  Elsewhere, the GOP is trying to get rid of Obamacare but are doing a half-assed attempt to do it.  Had they not drunk the Kool-Aid that President Donald J. Trump colluded with the Russkies, they might actually have gotten rid of this crap, but they failed like they always do.
  59. 2018 Wednesday: U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy announces his retirement effective July 31st.  Meanwhile, in one of the MOST EMBARRASSING election losses in ages, New York Democrat Rep. Joe Crowley, a powerful member of leadership, goes down in flames as bar maid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez DEFEATS him in the state’s primary.  He would not even debate this crazy chick because he dismissed her and look what happened to him: LOSER with a capital “L.”
  60. 2019 Thursday: The John Roberts U.S. Supreme Court does it again: it rules in a 6-3 ruling that the U.S. 2020 Census cannot contain a citizenship question.  WTF?  The court also rules that partisan gerrymandering is A-Okay in that the party in power can rejigger the boundary lines of congressional districts.  No wonder the Dems in California are stealing elections.  Again, WTF?   Elsewhere, down in Miami, Florida, the Democrats hold their presidential primary debate.  As usual, it’s a freak show of giving away everything to noncitizens and proclamations that President Donald J. Trump is ‘EVIL.’
  61. 2020 Saturday: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 9,891,728 confirmed cases, 496,075 confirmed deaths, and 5,004,567 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 2,556,465 confirmed cases, 127,452 confirmed deaths, and 783,235 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states where 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: 206,433 confirmed cases, 5,872 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 866 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 705 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 31,351 confirmed cases, 1,310 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 181,861,268 confirmed cases, +314,950, 3,938,817 confirmed deaths, +6,076 and 166,373,962 confirmed recoveries, +300,677.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,494,677 confirmed cases, UP 4,543 from yesterday’s reporting, 619,424 confirmed deaths, UP 81, [vi] and 28,927,335 confirmed recoveries, UP 14,429.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]  
  63. 2021 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 301,518 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 158,131 deaths  
  64. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,816,358 confirmed cases, 63,588 confirmed deaths, and 2,072,518 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,367,298 confirmed cases, 37,772 confirmed deaths, and 2,179,663 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,647 confirmed cases, 516 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 452,235 confirmed cases, 5,949 confirmed deaths, and 225,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., North Dakota: they have 110,663 confirmed cases, 1,528 confirmed deaths, and 108,988 confirmed recoveries.

[xiii]        
  67. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.272 per gallon, $2.938 in Florida, $4.002 in Hawaii, and $3.720 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- New York: $3.151.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Australia: $3.974 per U.S. Gallon. [xv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,456,752,827,063 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xvii]
  68. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #96 for “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border and Day No. 2 following her first brief trip to the border this past Friday.  Next, here are the stats as reported by One America News for the costs of providing succor to the millions of illegal aliens in this country and their numbers which we believe are conservative.  First, this is the cost this day of providing help to illegal aliens: $629,274,624.  Next, here are the costs this year of caring for the illegal aliens: $194,601,926,656.  Now, here are the numbers for the illegals who have crossed into the United States this year: 1.994,514.  Next, here are the estimated numbers of illegals in the country which in our view is extremely conservative: 35,994,512.  (Note- we have estimated since the inception of this blog back in 2009 that the numbers of illegals then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe there are between 75-100 million lurking within the country.  Time to round them up and boot them out of the country.  NOW.  OAN sources: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  69. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Famed economist Stephen Moore said today that a ‘great nation does not borrow its way to prosperity.’  Amen.  Next, Senator Rob Portman, R-OH, says of the ‘bipartisan infrastructure bill’ is popular for all the right reasons.   Speaking of the infrastructure bill, feeble old Joe Biden claims that comments he made regarding this bill and his dissatisfaction with it were not meant to sound like a threat of a veto.  Uh, okay.  Meanwhile, traitorous Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell is back to being negative on President Donald J. Trump and is encouraging former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr to come out and to announce that the 2020 Presidential Election was completely kosher, that there was no fraud, that all was peachy-keen.  None of us know what is wrong with “Cocaine Mitch” but this time, there is no coming back for him.  He must lose his seat.
  70. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, and 14 other GOP congressmen have sent a letter to the director of the Internal Revenue Service demanding revelations as to how the IRS can justify going after Christian organizations by denying them tax exempt status simply because ‘they tend to lean right.’  What the hell?  Is Lois Lerner back working for the IRS?  This is unconstitutional and extremely illegal.  What are we, Nazi Germany now?
  71. 2021 Sunday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Apparently North Koreans are concerned over the ‘dramatic weight loss’ of dear beloved leader Kim Jong Un?  Perhaps they stapled his stomach, and he is losing weight?  If he goes- his crazy-ass sister, Kim Yo-jong, will most likely take over his spot.  There won’t be any summits between her and drooling Joe Biden, that’s for sure.  In other foreign news, it sounds as though the military-industrial-political complex has pushed the decrepit usurper-in-chief to launch airstrikes on Iranian positions in Iraq and Syria.  Ah, who doesn’t love a good war, eh?
  72. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The VAERS website reports that in the United States alone, there have been more than 4,114 deaths or hospitalizations due to problems resulting from the various COVID-19 vaccines.  NOT GOOD.  Down in Arkansas, Governor Asa Hutchinson says that hospitalizations are increasing while vaccines to get incentives are falling.
  73. 2021 Sunday J: Where we were last year: Today is Day #158 of the Biden regime nightmare.  The question is, how long will the American people chafe under this usurper regime?  Especially one owned by the Chi-Coms and the Russians?  Folks, we hope to see the restoration of the Trump presidency before year’s end and the traitors rounded up and sent to prison where they belong.  You know what the Fake News says- we’ve never had a presidential election overturned in the history of the county but then, we have never had an election stolen as blatantly as was the 2020 Presidential Election.  Stay tuned…
  74. 2022 Monday: Who knows what’s occurring this year.

  46. 2015 Friday: In Yola, Nigeria, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ carry out a bombing that ills 31 people and injures countless others.  Were the people blown up fellow believers or were they innocent people going about their business?  Remains to be seen…
  47. 2016 Sunday: Hillary Clinton wins the Democratic Primary in Puerto Rico today.  Requiring 2,383 delegates to clinch the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, she is now less than 30 shy of the necessary tally.
  48. 2017 Monday: Hostility in the Arab world continues to mount against Qatar as Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE sever ties with the Persian Gulf kingdom over its support of Islamic terrorism around the world.  The Maldives, Yemen, and Libya follow in their footsteps.  Qatar seems more amenable to Iranian hegemony than they are to Arab solidarity.   Meanwhile, Puerto Rico declares its Zika virus epidemic over.  Good.
  49. 2018 Tuesday: In Santa Clara, CA, Judge Aaron Persky becomes the first sitting judge voted out of office in the state in 80 years, all because he showed extreme leniency towards college campus rapist Brock Turner.  Elsewhere, to disprove that it under-reported fatalities suffered in Hurricane Maria, the government of Puerto Rico says it will comply with a Superior Court order to fork over ALL death certificates.
  50. 2019 Wednesday: In Game 3 of the 2019 NBA Finals, in Oakland, the Toronto Raptors beat the injury-plagued Golden State Warriors by a final score of 123-109 to take a 2-1 series lead.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump confirms he is seeking a $2 billion arms deal including the main U.S. battle tank- the M1A1- as well as a restock on all other offensive weapons for the freedom-loving peoples of Taiwan.  Beijing goes ballistic and expresses their immense displeasure that the American running dogs would do such a horrible thing as to sell weapons to a free and independent country.  (Note- a year later, it would appear they paid us back with COVID-19…well, later this year.  Coincidence?  Don’t count on it).
  51. 2020 Friday: The economic news for the month of May is phenomenal with an increase of 2,509,000 new jobs and a decrease in unemployment to 13.3-percent.  The DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 27,110.98, +829.16 (3.15%); the NASDAQ closed at 9,814.08, +198.268 (2.06%), and the S&P closed at 3,193.93, +81.58 (2.62%). Hate to say it but the Democrats are shocked.  Meanwhile, in many American cities, Democrats are declaring their intention to defund big city police departments.  Again, we suspect that communist China is behind this crap.
  52. 2020 Friday A: Here are today’s COVID-19 statistics for the world: 6,724,516 confirmed cases, 394,018 confirmed deaths, and 2,996,832 confirmed recoveries the last number of which is glorious.  Still, we must condemn the communist government of a once-free China for sending this evil around the world to cover up their own internal problems.
  53. 2020 Friday B: Here are today’s stats for the United States: 1,935,432 confirmed cases, 110,655 confirmed deaths, and 453,053 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here is California’s numbers: 122,901 confirmed cases, 4,485 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in Hawaii, here are the numbers: 655 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 611 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in far-left Washington, here are the numbers for today: 22,974 confirmed cases, 1,149 confirmed deaths, but like other socialist s-holes, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.
  54. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 173,704,678 confirmed cases, +392,196, 3,735,760  confirmed deaths, +8,984 and 156,812,386 confirmed recoveries, +532,556.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,203,708 confirmed cases, UP 10,937 from yesterday’s reporting, 612,583 confirmed deaths, UP 381,[v] and 28,100,548 confirmed recoveries, UP 47,450.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]  
  55. 2021 Saturday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 294,677 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 164,972 deaths  
  56. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,795,441 confirmed cases, 63,003 confirmed deaths (lowered number), and 2,059,703 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,329,867 confirmed cases, 36,973 confirmed deaths, and 1,970,341 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,535 confirmed cases, 502 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 441,676 confirmed cases, 5,889 confirmed deaths, and 215,268 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., South Carolina, birthplace of the U.S. Civil War: they have 593,948 confirmed cases, 9,752 confirmed deaths, and 549,380 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  57. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,569 confirmed cases, 6,418 confirmed deaths, and 832,932 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country-  Maldives, 104th country on the list: 67,538 cases of the virus, 182 confirmed deaths and 47,333 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  58. 2021 Saturday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,756.39, UP 179.35 points (+0.52%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,814.59, UP 199.98 points (+1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,229.89, UP 37.04 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.37 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.30 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.31%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,841.08 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.07%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $23,300.00 per troy oz., -1,000.00 (-4.12%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., -2,500.00 (-0.41%). [xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96.     In Fijian Dollar, one greenback equals 2.02 and in French Pacific Franc, a buck equals 98.00 and in Gambian Dalasi, one dollar equals 50.25 of theirs.[xii]        
  59. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.215 per gallon, $2.855 in Florida, $3.954 in Hawaii, and $3.597 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Iowa: $2.881.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Panama: $3.374 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,369,641,789,513 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.  The third nation owning much of our debt is Brazil- they own $300 billion.[xvi]
  60. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #75 for the gibbering hyena- the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and boy, what a ‘czar’ she’s been- not shown up once to see just how insane things have become there, not to give us her customary high-pitched cackle to show she’s on the job.  WTF!  Meanwhile, One American News shared the latest border stats with its viewers today.  Are we ready?  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day Alone for caring for all these illegal aliens: $584,766,784, all of which is taxpayer money.  Next- (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for all these illegal aliens- $170,447,814,656, all of which again belongs to the taxpayers.  Imagine if they gave the descendants of slaves in this country the money as reparations instead of squandering it upon ILLEGAL ALIENS?  This is insane.  Next, (3) Number of Illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 1,746,953.  Round them up and deport them as fast as they flow in.  Finally, (4) Total Number of Illegals ESTIMATED to be in the U.S.: 35,746,953.  Since 2009, we have estimated the number at 35-50 million whereas now, we believe it is closer to 60-75 million.   These illegals suck away at the life’s blood of the American taxpayers, suck up our benefits, lower wages, drive up the costs of rents, overrun our hospitals, f**k up our schools, and commit millions of crimes.  Time to scoop them up and deport ALL of them NOW.
  61. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– NBC News is beginning to see the light (it must be killing them) and is refuting the notion that the southern border is closed, the story the Biden regime continues to pedal.  Speaking of the Biden regime, the Bidenistas in the White House and at the Department of Homeland Security have a new APP with which to enable the legions of illegal aliens to swamp across our southern frontier.  And you ask are the Bidenistas working on behalf of the Chi-Coms, or aren’t they?  The answer seems to speak for itself. 
  62. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Chi-Coms released Chow Hang Tung from the hoosegow.  She is one of the organizers of the commemoration of Tiananmen Square 1989 event.  Like the Turks hate talking about the Armenian Genocide, so, too, do the Chi-Coms hate talking about the massacre of more than 10,000-11,000 pro-democracy protesters (much less the extermination of the Uighurs, the Tibetans, and non-Han minorities).  Meanwhile, U.S. vaccine supplies arrive in South Korea.  Good.  Send them more and send some to the NORCs, too.  We don’t want them, especially not that Johnson & Johnson crap.  (Note to date, more than 4,200 people have died because of vaccine complications.  Any other drug on the market would already be pulled.  We favor Hydroxychloroquine as a preventative- f**k Neil Cavuto).  Elsewhere, after Twitter shut down the president of Nigeria- Muhammadu Buhari- for one of his tweets, Nigeria shut down Twitter.  That is all that needs to be done.  SHUT THEM DOWN.
  63. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Speaking of the Chi-Vi, things continue getting worse for Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says, “Joe Biden should follow the science and fire Dr. Fauci.”  Amen.  Next, Rep. Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Tony Fauci must testify before Congress now that his emails have exposed him.’  Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is demanding that “Phony Tony” resign NOW.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, now that he has called out Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci is once again receiving death threats from his unenlightened, ignorant enemies.  
  64. 2021 Saturday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– A bipartisan group of lawmakers are urging Joe Biden to begin pulling out our Afghan allies as the handover to the Afghan government continues.  We know what is going to happen there; only it will be worse than what befell the South Vietnamese.  Next, a group of Bidenistas met with their Israeli Defense Forces and guaranteed they would help defend the Jewish state.  We hope so.  In other anti-Joe Biden news, the state of Arizona is growing increasingly resistant to any talk of the Biden regime raising federal income taxes.  Good.  We must fight them on land, sea, in the air, and underground.   Speaking of Biden’s policies, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says that ‘Joe’s policies are killing the United States.’
  65. 2021 Saturday K: Political News I– Governor Steve Sisolak, D-NV, signed a bill into law today making MAIL-IN voting the law of the state.  (Note- we must play by their own game if we are to crush these scumbags).  Next, that ignorant, self-important a-hole- CNN’s Jake Tapper- swears that he will blacklist ANY REPUBLICAN from appearing on his show who refuses to admit that Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election.  (Note- we guess he’s going to have Liz Cheney and the other losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump on his show around the clock).   
  66. 2021 Saturday L: Political News II– The U.S. Department of Justice claims that it will NO longer seize the phone records of journalists.  (Note- this was frequent practice under the Obama-Biden regime for eight years- why would it change now?  Of course, they are going to continue seizing records).  In other crazy news, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen told leaders of the G7 to continue spending and spending, she says inflation will pass.  How the hell did this loser ever run the Fed?  This is insane.   Speaking of the G7, if the Biden regime can convince them to give him his GLOBAL CORPORATE TAX, he will get a ‘win.’  That is flipping crazy.   (Note- do not count President Donald J. Trump out.  Ever).  
  67. 2021 Saturday M: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump addressed more than one-thousand attendees at the North Carolina GOP Convention this evening and what a speech.  The Dems are going to wish they had not stolen the election because terrible things are coming their way.  We also learned that Lara Trump won’t be seeking the U.S. Senate seat of outgoing RINO Richard Burr.  She has two young kids- 1- and- 3-years-old who need their mother more than she needs politics.  President Trump endorsed Rep. Ted Budd, R-NC 13th congressional district, to succeed Senator Burr.  Elsewhere, a federal judge in California has tossed the three decades-plus ban on so-called ‘assault weapons,’ causing Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to go ballistic.  Perhaps it was the tossing of his beloved ban that led him to say ‘the state is NOT reopening on June 15 as the little closet cross-dresser promised.  Wow.
  68. 2021 Saturday N: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Within 24 hours, conservatives raised $100,000 for Rep. Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio-Cortez’s pobrecita abuela in Puerto Rico.  As you know, “The Fly” was crying yesterday about the condition of her poor little abuela’s house in Puerto Rico, doing what good communists do and that is to blame everyone else for their own problems.  Well, AOC must be embarrassed, thus she told her abuela ‘you cannot take this money, it will humiliate me.’  Poor abuela said today she ‘refuses to accept the money because it comes with onerous strings.’  What a flipping loser but her granddaughter, the Fly, is the real embarrassment, a national embarrassment.  Vote her out in 2022 along with the rest of the Squad.
  69. 2021 Saturday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3566 with a $52 million pot on the line: 04, 07, 08, 32, 45, and Mega 14.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #852 with a $286 million pot on the line. 44, 52, 54, 64, 69, and Powerball 26.  The California Lottery site is having technical issues tonight… first, here are the Super Lotto winners- out of 131,098 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $23,629 apiece.  One ticket was sold at (1) Rimpau Smoke Shop in Corona, CA 92881 and the second at (2) Super 1 Cigarette in Visalia, CA 93277.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball: out of 97,904 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,921 apiece.
  70. 2021 Saturday P: Ah, it’s the weekend, let’s hope it’s a slow news day…oh, wait!  President Donald J. Trump is speaking at the North Carolina GOP Convention in Greenville this evening.  That is going to send a shiver of cold fear down the backs of the Bidenistas and the Chi-Coms…
  71. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

A year later, the Beach Boys’ record label did it again: compiled another two LP fantastic collection of the band’s crème de la crème from the same time period as the preceding album we promoted, “Endless Summer.”  “Spirit of America” hit record store shelves on April 14, 1975, and had additional tunes culled from the archives including some B-sides such as the much-beloved “Breakaway.”  Friends, if you are new to the Beach Boys and have not gotten your fill yet or if you are a new fan in a new age, we hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Everyone will celebrate listening to these timeless songs of summer fun, dozing in the sand, hanging with the chicks (sexist, we know, but we don’t give a flying f**k), riding hot rods, motorcycles, and everything else patriotic American young people loved doing.  Seek this album out and make it a part of your daily playlist- you will be so glad you did.

102. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, APRIL 12, 2022

Thanks for joining us today, we are attempting to become a bit more middle of the road so that entities such as Bing won’t throw our search results into the garbage. This, of course, will require time and diligence on our parts just as it will require patience on the part of our critics. We see the writing upon the wall, Biden administration.

  78. 2021 Monday F: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS– The state of Arizona is suing the ‘Biden administration’ over its flawed border policies.  They are suing the corrupt regime on environmental grounds as the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens pouring across the southern frontier are leaving heaps of garbage, fecal matter, urine, discarded clothing, condoms, beverage containers, food wrappers, and all sorts of other garbage that is destroying the pristine environment along the Arizona-Mexico border.  Next, President Joe Biden taps two openly hostile critics of President Donald J. Trump to lead key agencies.  First, he picks Tucson, Arizona’s chief of police, Chris Magnus to lead Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Ur Jaddou to head U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  Both of these POS will push open borders policies.  Speaking of open borders, today is Day 19 that Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris has failed to hold a press conference so she can share her ideas for fixing the southern border crisis.   
  79. 2021 Monday G: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS II– The first family’s dog, Major, is scheduled to get another round of training for all the people he has bitten since entering the White House.  What more proof does one need that the dog is a prop for a feeble old coot like President Joe Biden?  Next, as the White House continues trying to convince the American people that another $2 trillion bill- this one, the INFRASTRUCTURE FIASCO BILL[xv]– is somehow good for them, Biden’s henchmen are going to target the home states of GOP leaders for a concerted push.  (Note- Joe, we don’t want this POS bill.  What you are going to do is that borrowing money from our enemies- that’s right- I flipping said it- the Chinese- you are going to allow them to become de facto owners of U.S. businesses and landlords of the American people.  Chef Kilgore).   Meanwhile, we learn today that RINO wife of the late Senator John S. McCain- Cindy- could get an ambassadorship to the United Nations Food Program.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!  Big flipping deal.   Finally, President Joe Biden is going to nominate former Pentagon employee Christine Wormuth to become the U.S. Army secretary.  If she gets the gig, she will become the first woman to hold this position.  YOU couldn’t find a tranny for secretary of the Army, Joe?
  80. 2021 Monday H: POLITICAL NEWS I– Fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, is peeved today at her Chief Operating Officer Tricia Foster basically told her boss to ‘go f**k herself’ by taking her family to Florida to vacation during spring break and then possessing the chutzpah to post photos of her vacation to online social media sites.  According to Herr Whitmer, NO one in Michigan government is to disobey her by going to the EVIL, COVID-19-infested Florida.  Oh, well.  We predict Governor Whitmer is going to face a Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu moment when the citizens of her state drag that Frankenstein-headed b***h (the only thing she’s missing are the bolts in her neck) and her family out and liquidate them.   This is the fate of ALL dictators.[xvi]  In other news, former DNI John Ratcliffe says that ‘Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian connections and his laptop are NOT Russian disinformation.’ 
  81. 2021 Monday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEA NEWS– the Iranians are running around jabbering and swearing over the recent BLACKOUT that befell their main nuclear facility in Natanz.  Israel, if YOU are going to f**k with these scumbags, how about setting a chain reaction off within the program so the entire country blows the hell up?  Now, that would be something we would all love to see.  Meanwhile, the ‘Biden administration’ is negotiating with Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (Trump already did this) to obtain their help in stopping the tidal wave of illegal aliens flooding from the three Central American countries through Mexico and into the U.S.  We believe we should militarize the southern border and throw back every wave of illegals invading our country.
  82. 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– After a traffic stop goes awry in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, people are criticizing the moron judge in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd because with all the problems that have occurred in the area as well as across the country because he did not sequester the jury in this case.   Next, New York State continues to forge ahead with its incredibly STUPID plan of giving checks as high as $15,600 apiece to illegal aliens who may have been affected by the ‘VID when U.S. citizens have lost homes, businesses, and many of them are living out on the streets.  Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the “Gropin’ Gov” must go now.  In other news, Victor Davis Hanson says that ‘all organizations and institutions have all gone WOKE.’ 
  83. 2021 Monday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– President Donald J.

  84. 2021 Monday L: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– Taiwan reports that the Chinese flew 25 warplanes into their airspace earlier today.  Unlike the time when Chinese leader Hu Jintao was reaching out to Taiwan’s leadership, it’s clear that Xi Jinping is pulling a full-on Adolf Hitler, trying to intimidate neighboring countries around the borders of the People’s Republic of Chi-Com Land or actively trying to subvert them so as to force them into the fold.   Taiwan’s air defenses locked onto the PRC warplanes while tracker planes flew along with them.  War is coming, folks, war is coming, and we have, uh, President Joe Biden?  WTF!

  87. 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: 9,134,145 confirmed cases, 89,534 confirmed deaths, and 8,888,559 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,913,991 confirmed cases, 73,588 confirmed deaths, and 5,796,925 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 241,972 confirmed cases, 1,382 confirmed deaths, and 236,758 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,467,059 confirmed cases, 12,566 confirmed deaths, and 1,431,389 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Delaware: they have 259,419 confirmed cases, 2,884 confirmed deaths, and 253,989 confirmed recoveries.[xix]

  90. 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 $5.748 per gallon, $4.056 in Florida, $5.239 in Hawaii, and $4.669 in Washington state.[xxiv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Delaware- $3.945.  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 14th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Bahrain: $2.008 per U.S. Gallon.[xxv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,380,403,104,848 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvi]  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 Germany the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda.  This nation holds $73,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  91. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- The ongoing war in Ukraine is raising the specter of global famine as Russia is among the biggest producers of fertilizers across the world.  Atop this conundrum, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the West in general and the U.S. in particular that ‘Russia cannot be isolated nor held back from pursuing its goals.’  Putin’s goals are evil: the mayor of Bucha reported that at least 400 bodies of Ukrainian civilians have been recovered from where Russian forces massacred them.  The Russians claim they massacred no one but the Russkies never change.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken- and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky- say they cannot confirm claims that Russia used chemical weapons on civilians in Mariupol.  However, former Republican presidential candidate Jim Gilmore says that the ‘U.S. may have to provide chemical weapons to Ukraine.’
  92. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 375 days.  She has not arrived on scene to do the job in, uh, 289 days.  Yet, she still receives a paycheck.  Wow.  By our account, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens since the beginning of January 2022 is in our estimate, $649,272,590 while the cost of caring for the illegals since President Joseph R. Biden and Vice President Harris held up their right hands with their left hands on the Bible and took the oath to preserve and to defend the country, we estimate the cost of caring for the illegal alien invasion army at $42,395,348,333.  Imagine what that money could do for the American people?  Since January 01, 2022, we estimate that 1,036,752 illegals have arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border and that the conservative estimate of illegal aliens living in our country as you read this at 46,428,238.  We contend that there are between 85-to-125 million illegal aliens in the country, which is a horrendous number, something that seems to be on purpose to topple the U.S.  Time for patriots of all backgrounds to defend the country.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  93. 2022 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Taiwan is reading the tea leaves and recognizes that as Russian efforts in Ukraine continue to sour, a second front is about to open up thus Taipei is putting out a pre-invasion handbook with which to prepare their people for the inevitable.  We suspect that Beijing is weighing the consequences if they lose capital warships in the Straits of Taiwan.  Will they continue building armaments for future plans or will they roll the dice as Vladimir Putin has?  In other news related to China, Warner Bros. is taking loads of heat from WOKE Americans over censoring Dumbledore as gay at the request of Beijing.
  94. 2022 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- In yet another blow to Democrat dreams and hopes, a new Axios-Ipsos poll says that less than 10-percent of American voters believe that COVID-19 is a severe problem in the country at present.  Give the Dems time and by October, the country will be beset by another wave of COVID-19, possibly the Frankenstein variant,[xxvii] mentioned a week ago in England and then instantly sent into the shadows.  This could become a two-year cycle every election year where new strains of COVID-19 come out with just enough time to cause problems for elections.
  95. 2022 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $53.11 (2) AstraZeneca: $68.61 (3) Novavax: $58.10 (4) Merck & Company: $85.63 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.90  (6) BioNTech: $169.13 (7) Moderna: $159.50.
  96. 2022 Tuesday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $102.60 (2) Boeing: $176.28 (3) General Dynamics: $243.82 (4) Lockheed Martin: $467.55 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $463.28.
  97. 2022 Tuesday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.08 (2) DuPont: $68.46 (3) 3M: $148.58 (4) Honeywell: $190.99  (5) Teijen: $1,313.00.
  98. 2022 Tuesday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $22.52 (2) Beyond Meat: $43.58  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $67.95.
  99. 2022 Tuesday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $153.23 (2) Lowe’s: $204.14 (3) Home Depot: $306.29 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $581.36 (5) Amazon: $3,015.75.
  100. 2022 Tuesday O: Political News I- Governor Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a bill prohibiting abortion in the state.  In other news, Republicans are calling out U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm over her sneaking components of the Green New Deal into ‘law’ by making them regulations that are not passed by lawmakers thus, it is difficult to overturn or to remove them. Still, when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, for every new regulation passed, two had to be removed.  Boy, those were the good old days.
  101. 2022 Tuesday P: Political News II- Democrats continue enduring self-inflicted problems via their electing crooks and scumbags.  Federal agents scooped up Empire State Lt. Governor Brian Benjamin for campaign finance fraud.   Upon being charged, the Lt. Governor resigned.  What the heck is wrong in the Empire State?  Former Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo was a POS, state Attorney-General Letitia James is a POS, current Governor Kathy “Heil Hitler” Hochul certainly is a POS just as current Big Apple Mayor Eric “Sleazebag” Adams is and his predecessor, Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio most definitely was. It would appear that the Empire State has rapidly passed Illinois as the most corrupt state in the Union.  They have lost other losers such as former Governor Eliot Spitzer and former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, and an extensive list of others.  How embarrassing.
  102. 2022 Tuesday Q: Political News III- It appears that Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, is aware that his popularity is waning.  He is pondering his political future.  You still have a couple of years to straighten up, Mitt, but NO true Republican would ever vote for you again, especially if you tried to run for the presidency again.   In other news, Twitter has temporarily banned Jack Posobiec over his Disney ‘grooming’ parody.  Speaking of Disney, up until the state passed the Parental Rights in Education law donated $190,000 to GOP candidates whereas now, no more.  We suspect they donate loads of money to Democrats, however… Texas Department of Education issues guidelines for library books in its schools.  No perversion here, folks.
  103. 2022 Tuesday R: Mass Shootings News- This morning, a shooter carried out an attack on New York City’s subway system using smoke bombs to confuse his intended victims and a handgun to shoot them.  He shot 10-11 people but killed none.  Approximately 16 people were injured in the melee and while fleeing the scene.  Many of the victims appeared to be Asian and the shooter was identified as a black man named Frank James.  Law enforcement later found a U-Haul truck from Arizona and are carrying out a massive manhunt for Mr. James.  Currently, there is no belief that the mass shooting is related to terrorism.  (Note- if it were a white guy, it would be white supremacism run amok).  Regarding this unfortunate incident, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that attacks ‘follow the undermining of the NYPD.’
  104. 2022 Tuesday S: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1754 what with a $106 million jackpot on the line: 02, 08, 14, 20, 31, and Mega 17. Out of 59,520 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 75 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $237 apiece.
  105. 2022 Tuesday T: Thanks for joining us today, we are attempting to become a bit more middle of the road so that entities such as Bing won’t throw our search results into the garbage.  This, of course, will require time and diligence on our parts just as it will require patience on the part of our critics.  We see the writing upon the wall, Biden administration.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm had formed his own group back while he was still part of the Band: Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars.  His record label released an archival release- “Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars: Live at the Palladium, NYC, New Year’s Eve 1977” on July 25, 2006.  Of the 13 songs on the disc, most of them were covers which is cool because we have a wide range of musical influences here.  The band was more of an orchestra what with Levon Helm (lead and backing vocals/drums), the great Paul Butterfield (harmonicas), Steve “The Colonel” Cropper and Fred Carter Jr. (guitars), Booker T. Jones (keyboards and percussion), the “Night Tripper” aka Mac Rebennack (keyboards and gris-gris), Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass), a horn sections, strings, a conductor, and guest appearances by fellow Band mates Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson.  We love the album, particularly the Taj Mahal cover of “Ain’t That a Lotta Love,” which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.  At Amazon, you can pick it up for less than $29.97 so what the heck?  Seek it out now…

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

[v] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[vii] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

88. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2022

2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS- Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them. Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings. We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.

Trump.  Everyone knows that the majority of Germans did not vote for the Nazis just as the world knows eight decades-plus later that a loser like Joe Biden received 80 million popular votes.  It’s a bunch of malarkey.
  27. 1940 Friday: Joe Louis knocks out Johnny Paycheck in 2 to retain heavyweight-boxing title.  Elsewhere, Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov announces that the Soviet Union ‘will remain neutral in the war between Nazi Germany and France and Britain.’  Boy, does he have a surprise coming his way in June 1941.  Speaking of the Soviets, they are looking to nick off Bessarabia from Rumania which will put the Rumanians in the Axis camp.
  28. 1941 Saturday: As the British continue pushing through Ethiopia on the way to liberate the capital of Addis Ababa from the Fascist Italians, Italian civilians- who have no love for the war imposed upon them by Il Duce- are begging for protection from the British.  Renegade Askari troops are running amok murdering, raping, and torturing Italians wherever they find them.
  29. 1942 Sunday: Things are dire for the British indeed when they begin floating the idea of granting independence to their crown colony of India following a successful conclusion to World war II.  They desperately need Indian colonial troops to help them prosecute the war on all fronts.   Meanwhile, the RAF bomber command begins attacking civilian targets in Germany.  The strategy is to harm the civilian population as much as possible with the idea of driving them to take down the Nazi government.  Of course, this will never happen, and the German people will suffer horribly at the hands of their enemies.
  30. 1943 Monday: World War II rationing of meat, fats, and cheese began across the United States.  Meanwhile, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Chad Allan—multi-instrumentalist with Chad Allan and the Expressions, the band that would become the Guess Who[ii]—is born.  Elsewhere, the British Admiralty is weighing a difficult decision- do they suspend aid convoys to their new allies, the Soviet Union, because they lack the naval and long-range air assets to protect the convoys heading to Arctic Russian ports or do, they continue sending supplies and losing precious ships and personnel?
  31. 1944 Wednesday: Imperial Japanese forces continue trying to invest the eastern Indian city of Imphal, perhaps one of their worst-planned, self-inflicted military disasters yet.  When they should have been withdrawing their forces to points further east to defend the territories nearer to home conquered by them in late 1941-mid-1943, they have the idea that the people of India will join them in destroying the British.  This won’t happen- the Brits promised the Indian people their independence.  
  32. 1945 Thursday: During World War II, March 29 is the final day Nazi Germany launches B-1 attacks against Great Britain while the Soviet Army on the Eastern Front mauls the German 4th Army to the point that it no longer is battle-worthy.  In Hungary, as the Germans continue being forced back by the Red Army, Hungarian troops are deserting in droves and joining with the Reds.  They must do what they must to survive this horrendous conflict.  Still, the Germans can dish out a harsh mauling here and there.
  33. 1947 Saturday: Future keyboardist and vocalist with the rock band, Toto (1977-1984 / 1989 / 1998-2008)- Bobby Kimball- is born on this date.
  34. 1949 Tuesday: Turkey recognizes Israel.  When they were still a FREE democratic republic, the Turks were great people and were friendly with much of the world.  Fifty years later or so when the dictator would come and make the country into a junior partner of the Islamist school of thought, all of this would go out the window.
  35. 1951 Thursday: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg suffer conviction for espionage and in 1953, the couple will meet their end in the electric chair.
  36. 1954 Monday: The French paratroopers under the command of Major Marcel Bigeard manage to destroy numerous People’s Army antiaircraft artillery pieces which allows for French air assets to bring in supplies and reinforcements and to take out several hundred wounded soldiers.  Meanwhile, the command structure in Dien Bien Phu comes to the harsh decision that road clearing operations between the main camp and Isabelle to the south is becoming a costly daily battle for the troops.  Isabelle will have to rely on air drops from whatever planes can penetrate the AA batteries surrounding them.  Still, the French have no intention of giving in to the communists.
  37. 1961 Wednesday: After a 4-year trial, Nelson Mandela wins acquittal on treason charges.  In the U.S., the 23rd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution passes ratification thereby allowing the residents of Washington, D.C., to vote in presidential elections.

  40. 1966 Tuesday: Muhammad Ali beats George Chuvalo in a 15-round unanimous decision.   Ali improved his pro record to 23-0 by beating the Canadian heavyweight in a unanimous decision.  In so doing, he retained the WBC, the NYSAC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight boxing titles.  Chuvalo in his loss to Ali saw his record drop to 34-12-2.  Still, he went the distance with the Greatest.
  41. 1971 Monday: U.S. Army 1st Lt William L Calley, Jr. found guilty in the My Lai (Vietnam) Massacre.  The military tribunal convicted Lt. Calley of 22 deaths and sentenced him to serve three years of house arrest.  Meanwhile, a jury in Los Angeles, California, recommended the death penalty for Charles Manson and three female followers for the 1969 Tate-La Bianca murders; however, a judge later commuted the sentences.  
  42. 1973 Thursday: The last United States combat troops left South Vietnam, ending America’s direct military involvement in the Vietnam War.  In an address to the nation, President Richard Nixon declared, “For the first time in 12 years, no American military forces are in Vietnam.”

  54. 2003 Saturday: Thanks to the Chi-Coms, SARS- Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome- is running amok in various parts of the world.  In the Canadian city of Toronto, health authorities report at least 100 cases due to loads of Chinese going back and forth.
  55. 2004 Monday: Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia joined NATO as full members, welcomed into the organization by President George W. Bush at the White House.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com bullying, the nation of Dominica withdraws its diplomats from the Republic of China- Taiwan- and sends them to Beijing.  Cowards.  Meanwhile, scientists are all agog at having found methane in the Martian atmosphere which means there could be organic processes occurring on the Red Planet.  We suspect there are- where’s there’s water, folks, there’s life and where there’s life, there’s methane.
  56. 2005 Tuesday: In war-devastated Iraq- thanks to the Bush-Cheney administration- three Romanian journalists undergo kidnapping by violent jihadists.  Although these poor souls face having their heads lopped off, it’s clearer that the scumbags holding them want to charge a massive ransom for their safe return.  We shall see.
  57. 2006 Wednesday: Christian convert Abdul Rahman flees Afghanistan and receives asylum in Italy.  Multitudes of Afghan clerics and government officials demand his extradition back to his home country so they can show him what Islamic ‘justice’ is.
  58. 2007 Thursday: Once again, a militant hegemonic Iran is up to no good.  The U.N. Security Council is wagging a finger at them in ‘grave, grave concern’ over the Iranian Revolutionary Guard capturing and imprisoning 15 British Royal Navy and Marines they claim entered their territorial waters.  Time to drop some neutron bombs on these sand maggots.
  59. 2008 Saturday: Liberals are creaming their pants around the world as today is EARTH HOUR, a time in which, slobbering liberals encourage everyone to go without ALL nonessential power between the hour of 8-9:00 P.M. local time.  This will show those dastardly energy-guzzling scumbags like Senator John F. Kerry, D-MA.
  60. 2009 Sunday: At a nursing home in Carthage, North Carolina, a POS gunman goes on a rampage killing at least 8 people and wounding another 3.  Democrats immediately begin screaming for ‘GUN CONTROL!  CONFISCATE ALL GUNS!  DESTROY THE NRA!’  To be expected, every time some schmuck uses a gun for evil.
  61. 2010 Monday: At least 38 people die and 60 suffer injuries when two female suicide bombers carry out two separate terrorist attacks at Moscow Metro stations Lubyana and Park Kultury.   Elsewhere, in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi and her political movement, the National League for Democracy, announces that it will boycott the upcoming elections because of the corruption of their government.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis calls for the Federal Reserve to limit its purchase of U.S. Treasuries because they ‘feed the fire’ of inflation.  Meanwhile, from one end of the Near and Middle East to the other, people are running amok during the ‘Arab Spring.’  Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is assuming control of the entire government after two weeks of violent protests.

  65. 2014 Saturday:  Russia makes assurances that the country will not invade Ukraine in its efforts to resolve the dispute over its annexation of Crimea.  Of course, the Russians have already gobbled up the Crimea and will soon be waging undeclared war in eastern Ukraine on behalf of ‘Russian separatists’ there.
  66. 2015 Sunday: To combat the ISIS thugs, Egyptian President Fattah al-Sisi announces that moderate Arab states will begin allowing their militaries to work with one another since Barack Obama cut off aid to Egypt, Jordan, and others.  Saudi Arabia has already been battling Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.   Meanwhile, Pakistan is sending a Boeing 747 to evacuate its diplomats and civilians out of that crumbling country.
  67. 2016 Tuesday: Due to increasing strife and chaos along the southern border of Turkey with Iraq, the U.S. State Department as well as the Pentagon begin ordering all diplomatic and military personnel to evacuate.  ISIS is continuing to run amok in Syria butchering and killing people all over the place so in order to avoid an international incident, it’s time to begin withdrawing U.S. personnel.  We’d hate to go to war in Syria, right (or have we already been fighting there)?  Elsewhere, Breitbart News reports that Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is charged with battery for allegedly having pushed their reporter, Michelle Fields, away from his candidate on March 08.  What a load of crap.
  68. 2017 Wednesday: Britain filed for divorce from the European Union as Prime Minister Theresa May sent a six-page letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk.  Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump assumes a position as an unpaid advisor to her father, President Donald J. Trump.   Elsewhere, jihadists continue running amok in Iraq as a suicide bomber targets a police roadblock.  The subsequent explosion kills 15 people outright and injures at least another 40 poor souls.
  69. 2018 Thursday: Because the U.S. Department of Homeland Security failed to notify screened asylum seekers that their one-year period for requesting asylum was going to end, thus prompting the illegals to hurry up with their claims, Judge Ricardo S. Martinez orders the DHS to give the ‘asylum seekers’ another year to file their applications and also orders the DHS to fix their rules.   Meanwhile, the 2018 Major League Baseball season gets underway.  
  70. 2019 Friday: Democratic politician Lucy Flores accuses former vice president and presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden of an ‘inappropriate kiss.’  Oh, well; it’s not the first time.   Elsewhere, a judge in the Cayman Islands, a judge throws out a law stipulating that marriage is between one man and one woman and thus legalizes with the stroke of a pen gay marriage.  And another one bites the dust.
  71. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to the Wuhan Flu leaving China and enveloping the world, the number of confirmed global cases sits at 718,685 what with 33,881 confirmed deaths from the virus.  Meanwhile, in the United States, we know of 139,675 cases with at least 2,436 deaths.  China continues trying to alleviate itself of the sole responsibility as creators of this horrendous virus, but everyone knows the communists sitting pretty in Beijing are the culprits and that when the crisis passes, they will be held to account for it.  Shame on them: your plan to take out President Trump by ruining the global economy is a complete failure.
  72. 2021 Monday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– First, we hear that Joe Biden’s administration won’t lift the Trump-imposed tariffs on the People’s Republic of (communist) China.  This remains to be seen.  Next, Joe Biden says he has no plans on meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Joe plans to take a tough stance towards Pyongyang.  We shall see what the gets us.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump made a surprise visit to a wedding being held on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago and much to the delight of the guests began ripping into feeble old Joe Biden.   In other Joe Biden news, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Uncle Joe and his administration for labeling everything RACIST or calling it JIM CROW.  We agree.  Enough is enough already![iv]
  73. 2021 Monday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS I– In the Suez Canal, after offloading the quarter-mile-long Panamanian-flagged, Japanese-owned container ship, an armada of tugboats and cranes was finally able to get the ship back into the water.  Global economic losses per day due to the complete stoppage of canal traffic is estimated to be at $9 billion per day.  Prices on all goods will go up while others will once again be snapped up by hoarders.   Next, a report on One America News says that U.S. banks are busily divesting from communist China Tech and mainstream media companies.  Good.  They are a bunch of propagandists.   Next, Kim Jong Un says that the ‘United Nations is trying to negate his nation’s ability to defend itself from foreign attack.’
  74. 2021 Monday B: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– late last night, we were able to witness video in which a Baby Evita look-alike with BIG GOO-GOO EYES and a black face mask was prohibiting U.S. senators from filming the outrageous human rights abuses occurring in border holding pens for illegal aliens.  Apparently, the Biden administration has hired a bunch of young leftists to shield anyone from getting too close to the illegal aliens, languishing in squalid conditions far worse than what Kim Jong Un does to three generations of dissidents in his country.   This is contemptable and it must stop NOW.  Speaking of the border, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, supposedly the nation’s vice president, says she (and Uncle Joe) are NOT going to visit the southern border anytime soon but that she- as the new BORDER CZAR[v]– will meet with Central American leaders so she can address the illegal alien invasion at its source(s).   (Note- the administration says they are working on a plan but won’t say what the plan might be.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM suspect it will be sending trillions of taxpayer dollars to Third World despots and thugs).
  75. 2021 Monday C: POLLING NEWS– a recent poll shows that 57-percent of the American people disapprove of Joe Biden’s handling of the Second Amendment and his bid to outlaw all guns.  The same poll says that 54-percent of the American people view the activities along our southern border as a CRISIS although Uncle Joe and his bought-and-paid-for fake news media hacks do their best to avoid calling it as such.   Another poll shown on Newsmax says that a significant percentage of the American people view Cancel Culture as a dire threat to liberty and freedom.  Time to destroy it, folks.
  76. 2021 Monday D: COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS NEWS– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows blasts Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci for their revisionist rearrangement of what we know about COVID-19, whence it came from, and how bad it is.  The American people are tired of the constant barrage of lying and intimidation on the China Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control have extended the moratorium on evictions.  We didn’t know the CDC was in control of who could and who could not be evicted?  At what time will landlords be provided aid?  In other CDC news, the agency nixed Governor Ron DeSantis’ request to get the cruise lines up and going now that the Chi-Vi is scaling back.  Governor DeSantis says he will fight them and is threatening to sue.  Next, a new report released by the World Health Organization says that ‘the Chinese Virus came from animals, NOT from the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which if we are to believe this crock of festering crap returns us to the Wuhan Meat Market Malady Theory (although the virus came from animals and the Chi-Coms inside the institute were studying bat viruses.  Ba-bam!).
  77. 2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS– Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them.  Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings.  We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.  Elsewhere, the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is underway with opening statements made by both sides.  If the jurors follow the law, from what we saw already, it appears that Officer Chauvin will be cleared of all charges and will be reinstated on the force, IF the jurors follow the law.  Meanwhile, an Antifa mob in Salem, Oregon, attacked a Blue Lives Matter rally.  Next, reports from the Windy City from last night say that a car full of shooters pulled up alongside a party bus at a stoplight and lit the vehicle up.  One was killed outright and at least three others suffered injuries in the unprovoked assault.  Finally, in the Washington State House of Representatives, a bill has been passed prohibiting open carry at the state capitol and on state property.
  78. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– The National Rifle Association reports that business is good with an average of 1,000 new signups each day.  Excellent.   Meanwhile, Los Angeles County, California, has decided that violent crime has gotten so out of control that they are going to REFUND the law enforcement budget $36 million they cut from it several months back.  Next, Piers Morgan comes to the defense of Sharon Osbourne, recently fired from the ‘chick show,’ The Talk, for defending him.  Whatever the f*** happened to the right to express one’s opinions? 
  79. 2021 Monday G: GOP NEWS I– Senator Dan Sullivan, R-AK, says he will support his fellow senator, the highly unlikable party hack, Lisa Murkowski, who is facing a tough road ahead.  Alaska GOP politician Kelly Tshibaka, former Department of Administration commissioner, is seeking to primary Senator Murkowski in 2022.  Where can we send money, Kelly?   Elsewhere, famed attorney Linn Wood says he is seeking to become head of South Carolina’s GOP.  Uh, okay, didn’t you cost the state of Georgia TWO Senate seats, Mr. Wood?  Next, Senator Thom Tillis, R-NC, tells the media that he has a ‘prostate cancer’ confirmation from his doctor.  Good luck, Senator.  Hang in there.
  80. 2021 Monday H: POPULAR CULTURE NEWS– If you want to know where the blood of aborted fetuses go, rapper Lil NAS X and Nike are offering a limited-edition shoe, 666 pairs at more than a grand each dedicated to Satan.  In fact, the shoes are so ‘satanic,’ that the ‘Church of Satan’ has said, ‘right on, son, right on.’  Each pair of tennis shoes is made with ONE DROP of human blood which is sick enough, but the shoes are covered with satanic symbols and the like and what is clear to us is that although many will dismiss the shoes as a passing fancy, in a culture where Christianity and Judaism is under constant assault, this is evil shit.  Nike says we just make them, we neither approve nor disapprove of the shoes.  Wow.  NO more Nike shoes for us as this is sick shit.  Elsewhere, the author of Captain Underpants- David Murray Pilkey Jr.- has just had his books banned for…wait for it…you guessed it: PASSIVE RACISM.  Wow.
  81. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– New Mexico is suing the Biden administration over its plan to store nuclear waste in the Cactus State.  We keep waiting for someone such as Elon Musk to find a way to recycle and reuse spent uranium.  That would be a game changer as far a nuclear energy goes.  Imagine if atomic energy became so commonplace and safe that all ships and aircraft could be powered via nuclear energy, it would flatten the costs of fuel for massive cargo ships such as the one recently freed in the Suez Canal.   Speaking of Elon Musk, first, the Biden administration is floating a $3 trillion ‘infrastructure/green energy bill’ that will rely heavily on high-speed rail crisscrossing the country.[vi]  Folks, in California, each mile of the failed HSR project costs $200 million and much of the work done on it is done by the Chi-Coms.[vii]  Elon Musk is in the process of making the Hyperloop a reality just as he is a tunnel network that will permit self-driving vehicles to zip people underground across the country at 150 mph or more.  Hey, Uncle Joe: how about working with Elon Musk you senile old f***?   Speaking of energy, a new report says that the Chi-Coms are responsible for more than HALF of all coal emissions on the planet and it’s the United States that must use windmills and solar farms.
  82. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,479,098 confirmed cases, +46,271, 2,788,212  confirmed deaths, +7,436, and 72,276,724 confirmed recoveries, +316,035.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,318,775 confirmed cases, up 64,285 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,863 confirmed deaths, UP 394, and 118,013,462 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. 
  83. 2021 Monday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,653 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.  
  84. : 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: 3,541,928 confirmed cases (less than yesterday’s count), 56,072 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the next highest state after California- Arizona: currently, they have 836,253 confirmed cases, 16,745 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Serbia, home of the flashpoint for World War I: 566,689 cases of the virus, 5,039 confirmed deaths and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[viii]    Meanwhile, Joe Biden is demanding that states reimpose their mask mandates so we can ‘beat the virus.’  F*** you, Joe.  NOT our president.
  85. 2021 Monday M:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,171.37, UP 98.49 points (+0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,059.65, DOWN 79.08 points (-0.60%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,971.09, DOWN 3.45 points (-0.087%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.10 per barrel, +0.54 (+0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,710.10 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.72 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,183.40 per troy oz, +1.70 (+1.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.04 per pound, +0.01 (+0.20%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,541.50 per troy oz, +3.00 (+0.12%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $27,500.00 per troy oz., -700.00 (-2489%).[xi]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.60.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Bolivian boliviano, one greenback equals 6.85.[xii]  
  86. 2021 Monday N: 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 $3.897 per gallon, $2.874 in Florida (now that Chef Cheryl and her family have relocated there), $3.645 in Hawaii, and $3.326 in Washington state.[xiii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,109,117,789,302 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.  Meanwhile, Mayor Pete- our ‘transportation secretary’- says the Biden administration has NO plans at raising gasoline taxes or taxing drivers a mileage fee (which means they probably do) in order to pay for the upcoming $3 trillion ‘infrastructure plan.’  I guess we shall see.
  87. 2021 Monday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– It would appear that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has yet another accuser claiming that the ‘Gropin’ Gov’ groped her and didn’t want to let go.  What a POS and yet like a turd stuck to the side of the crapper, this piece of fecal matter refuses to go.  The new accuser says that the handsy governor groped this woman while touring her FLOODED flipping home.  Ye gods, is there NOTHING this scum bum won’t do?  Speaking of floods, several people lost their lives in flash-flooding in Tennessee.
  88. 2022 Tuesday: By now, everyone knows the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Rick Danko released his third solo album, “Live on Breeze Hill,” on July 27, 1999.  The album was recorded at a live show three months before the legendary bassist/fiddler/vocalist died which makes it an alluring show.  Always cursed with substance abuse problems and subsequent poor health, Danko was a fragile individual yet a brave, powerful performer.   Of the 12 cuts on this superb outing, most of them are Band classics, both tunes he and Richard Manuel sang as well as one or two from Levon Helm.  Also included are some of his originals which makes it a glorious purchase to be sure.  Joining Danko are friend, Garth Hudson (keyboards/accordions), Jim Weider and Roger Mason (guitars, basses), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), three brass players and another keyboardist.  We certainly hope that you will seek this album out at your favorite haunt for music and give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.

[i] The young United States should have taken ALL of Mexico down through the Central American countries to where the southern end of Panama meets the northern end of Colombia.  Had we done that, we would have solved the issue of illegal immigration.  We should have also taken Cuba in 1898 and kept her just as we should have gone back and taken Canada.  What a glorious nation we would have, one now being overrun with Third World illegal aliens.

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

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

[iv] Democrats think that if they call everything racist or Jim Crow or some combination of the terms that they can guilt or shame the American people into silence.  Here’s the deal- we don’t give a flying f*** anymore, call us racist as much as you like but one day when a REAL incidence of racism occurs and no one gives a damn, you will only have yourselves to blame.

[v] Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says that ‘putting (“Kooky”) Kamala Harris in charge along the border is akin to putting banned cyclist Lance Armstrong in charge of the DEA.’  You just don’t do that because as everyone knows, the former senator from California believes that border officials and immigration authorities are akin to the Ku Klux Klan.  F*** you, “Kooky Kamala.”

[vi] National debt in the United States sits at $28 trillion and is expected to double within 30 years or less.  Yikes.

[vii] In France, the cost per mile of high-speed rail is $30 million which still seems high.  However, in the United States, projects such as these are big pools of money from which, liberal politicians reward not only their flunkies and lackeys but also themselves which is why work is tortuously slow and cost overruns are increase by the day.  The people of California do not want this crap and yet the crap is forced upon us and Joe Biden plans to see that the money-go-round continues.

  57. 2019 Wednesday: Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi excitedly announces that his country has become a space power after the successful shootdown of a satellite via a ballistic missile test.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Theresa May says that if Parliament accepts her Brexit plan, she will step down.  They don’t and she does.  Finally, the holier-than-thou losers at Facebook say they will ban white nationalism and white supremacy after angry users bitch about the two mosque massacres being live streamed by the shooter in Christchurch, New Zealand, earlier in the year.  Good for YOU.  
  58. 2019 Wednesday A: Off the coast of Libya, a merchant vessel plying the Mediterranean rescues more than 100 migrants floundering aboard a leaky boat.  Instead of being grateful to their rescuers, the migrants hijack the vessel and demand that its crew take them to the island of Malta where they have some sort of cockamamie idea, they will find safe harbor there.  However, Maltese authorities say, ‘that vessel is NOT docking in our waters.’ What the hell is wrong with these ‘migrants?’
  59. 2020 Friday: The COVID-19 statistics for the day (at the time of this publishing) stand at 558,52 confirmed cases what with 25,251 fatalities; U.S. statistics stand at 86,012 confirmed cases along with 1,301 confirmed deaths.  Communist China continues claiming that within the borders of this Marxist-Leninist ‘paradise,’ the numbers of new cases continue to decline and that hundreds of millions of happy Chinese are jumping onto buses and going back to work.  Whoa.  Why aren’t we living there?
  60. 2021 Saturday: JOE BIDEN NEWS- U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is said to have terminated the 25-30 members of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory board which includes Trump appointees such as Ken Cuccinelli, Tom Homan, and anyone else who might be going against the Biden regime’s OPEN BORDERS policy.   Something else that first occurred last night is yet another story about carrot and stick politics in the Biden administration and that is Joe Biden nominated Senator Joe Manchin’s wife for a cushy, Michelle Obama-style no-show gig- a federal commission- with which to reward the Manchin family and force Senator Manchin, D-WV, to throw the Senate filibuster rule under the bus.  Not good but most believe Manchin will cave, especially if his spouse- Gayle Connelly Manchin- is confirmed for the $160,000 per year gig as the co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission.  Republicans are on the spot- oppose it and you will anger Joe Manchin and support it and Joe Manchin will trash the filibuster anyway.  Boy, talk about being over a barrel.   
  61. 2021 Saturday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE- After spending 24 hours along the southern border, GOP lawmakers are demanding the Biden regime return to enforcing Trump era policies that were much more humane in their treatment of illegal aliens by preventing their arduous journey to the U.S. southern border and those that did who truly required asylum waited in Mexico for their court hearings.  The problem is, Joe Biden told them to come, everyone has heard him say it and it has been widely reported.  Why are people coming with machine-printed t-shirts with Biden-Harris campaign logos on them and claiming to be ‘Joe’s children?’  Joe told them to come.   Mark Morgan, former border chief under several presidents told Newsmax TV that Joe Biden’s ideological hubris is creating the border chaos.   Next, Congressman Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district told Newsmax, “NO to mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.”  Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz shared video with news media of illegal alien kids being housed in ‘Joe Biden cages’ just as they were under the Obama-Biden administration.
  62. 2021 Saturday B: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS- The People’s Republic of China is forming a new Axis to rival that of Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan, Fascist Italy, and junior members Hungary, Rumania, Bulgaria, and Croatia (as well as with other foreign nationals coming from occupied countries or from nonbelligerent Fascist Spain) by inking a 25-year deal with Iran that will supply the massive communist global power with oil and petroleum products.  With Russia already in the camp and various tributary countries all throughout Asia, Africa, Latin America, and even in Europe, the Chinese communists are well on the way to world domination, especially with a feeble Joe Biden in the White House.  Fred H. Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy told Newsmax TV that ‘an indecisive, weak Joe Biden imperils the entire U.S. and free world.’  We concur.   Interestingly, Joe Biden is proposing an alternative to China’s Belt and Road Initiative- now that is something we’d like to see (although we are so far in debt it would be impossible.  The next generation will inherit $30 trillion in debt.  Impossible to escape.
  63. 2021 Saturday C: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS II– The People’s Republic of China is targeting various religious freedom folks such as Senator Joe Manchin’s wife, Gayle Connelly Manchin and other U.S. and Canadian religious freedom advocates bashing the Chi-Coms for their appalling human rights abuses.  We guess you know you’ve arrived when the Chi-Coms take a disliking to you.   Elsewhere, after firing a blitz of missiles into the oceans surrounding its country, the North Koreans blast the Biden regime for ‘making provocations.’   Meanwhile, local authorities are having a hell of a time budging the massive container ship blocking the Suez Canal.  Folks, offload that sucker and IMPLODE it like you would a building that needs to make way for a new one.  The insurance companies can reimburse the Japanese owners.  That’s all she wrote.  Finally, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson- BoJo- expresses his distaste of protesters attacking police in Great Britain.  It seems to be spreading like syphilis around the globe, disrespect for the cops.
  64. 2021 Saturday D: POLITICAL NEWS I- Upcoming U.S. wargames are expected to wage war against the Chi-Coms and the Russians.  Good to know.  Next, the Republicans are fighting the Joe Biden ‘infrastructure bill,’ the one that costs $3 trillion.   Moving on, Lara Trump says she will decide soon as to whether she will seek a U.S. Senate seat in her home state of North Carolina.   Meanwhile, down in the Peach State, the hubbub is underway, everyone wanting to boycott the state for having the balls to enact necessary voting reforms so Democrats like forever-angry Stacey Abrams cannot continue stealing them.  Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district says, ‘it’s about time.’   Elsewhere, the Maine GOP lacks the balls to censure Senator Susan Collins for her vote to convict President Donald J. Trump in the second impeachment farce.
  65. 2021 Saturday E: POLITICAL NEWS II– this was reported late last night (who didn’t see it coming?)- that the Biden administration via little Mayor Pete is considering slapping a mileage tax on Americans, charging them for every mile they drive.  We suspect they won’t charge BLACK drivers or illegal alien drivers but WHITE drivers, boy, are you chumps going to pay.  Of course, people will find ways to get around this as they always do which is why we think the Democrats should slap a NATIONAL SALES TAX on EVERY GOOD so that everyone will have ‘skin in the game.’  Poor people will pay it, illegal aliens will pay it (space aliens, too, if they buy anything), as will every one of every economic class.  Otherwise, the mileage tax is going to cause even more problems.  Why are these people so stupid?[vii]   In other news last night, we heard that New York City is removing qualified immunity from its law enforcement officers, becoming the first city in the United States to do so.  City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, DS 3rd district, says ‘qualified immunity is rooted in systemic racism.’  Bam!  Who didn’t see that one coming?   Noted legal scholar Alan Dershowitz says doing so is ‘an outrage.’  Finally, humorous note of the night- Congressman Mondaire Jones, D-NY 17th district, blasts the Biden White House for being hypocrites for firing White House staffers for past drug use.
  66. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– Famed college level and pro-football Coach Howard Schellenberger died at age 89.  Next, Lt. General Michael Flynn’s brother, John “Jack” Flynn is suing CNN for $75 million for defamation.  Elsewhere, tornadoes are roaring through parts of Alabama destroying property and claiming the lives of at least six people.  Dreadful, simply dreadful.   Finally, NBC’s Peacock streaming service is going to edit WWE broadcasts for some unknown reason.  Racism there, too?  What?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The reformed Band released their next, albeit, final album, “Jubilation,” on September 15, 1998.  This time, the group performed numerous self-penned tunes rather than covers which is among the reasons the critics lavished loads of praise upon it.  The Band features Rick Danko (guitars, bass, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, bass, vocals, and mandolins), Garth Hudson (keyboards, accordions, saxophones, even vocals), Richard Manuel (piano on one track), Jim Weider (guitars/vocals), Rick Bell (keyboards/accordions/vocals), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), along with guest spots by loads of other talented and well-known musicians, at least 15-20 of them.  While it’s challenging not to have major songwriter and guitarist Robbie Robertson in the fold, it is what it is.  We hope you will seek this album out as it is the first of a trio of new works to come.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

  76. 2020 Thursday: As of this publication time, COVID-19 Wuhan Virus statistics acknowledge 491,623 cases globally what with 22,169 deaths.  In the United States, there are 69,210 confirmed cases as well as 1,046 deaths.  Meanwhile, for the week of 03-15 to 03-21-2020, unemployment claims rose to 3.28 million.  As for the COVID-19 Relief Bill, right now, it clocks in at $2.2 trillion.  Still, the Democrats are not happy.
  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.  
  90. : 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: 3,648,021 confirmed cases (same as yesterday’s count), 57,909 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the third highest state after California- Florida: currently, they have 2,016,505 confirmed cases, 32,819 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Hungary, former Axis ally: 586,123 cases of the virus, 18,703 confirmed deaths and 378,176 confirmed recoveries.[xvi]  
  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.
  96. 2022 Saturday: Thank God, it’s Saturday.  We hope things remain peaceful…

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!

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

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

KWANZAA CELEBRATION 2021-22 DAY SEVEN- FINAL DAY

Trump for working against the commander-in-chief.  His replacement- Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M.

  61. 2020 Thursday: After a two-day standoff outside the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad, Iraq’s Green Zone, Iranian-backed militias withdraw back into the rat holes inside the city.  The pro-Iranian group tried to storm the embassy following devastating U.S.-led airstrikes against terrorist targets in Syria and Iraq.  Light ‘em up, boys, light ‘em up.  Meanwhile, following an airstrike by Syrian government forces in Idlib, Syria, aid workers claim the Syrians hit a school killing nine civilians and wounding loads of others.  Folks, they’re terrorists, shed no tears for terrorists.  Elsewhere, tens of thousands of Hong Kong residents take to the streets to protest Beijing’s oppressive presence and to defend their liberties from the Chi-Coms.   Finally, the strike by French railway workers now is the longest since 1968.
  62. 2021 Friday: Ever the “optimist,” Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says, “Trump will be dead in a few days” as relations between his rat-shit country and the United States continue to deteriorate.  Meanwhile, the Iranians chant ‘DEATH TO AMERICA’ on the one-year anniversary of the whacking of Quds Force commander General Qassim Soleimani.  We say, “NUKE THEM!”  We should nuke the scumbags because once again, they are mining the Persian Gulf as oil tankers leaving Iraq find the explosive devices floating in the sea lanes.
  63. 2021 Friday A: Once again, the Mitch McConnell-led Senate blocks the $2,000 relief checks for the American people.   Here’s the thing that is angering the American people: the COVID-19 Relief Bill directs $174 billion to the American people and $762 billion to various other countries around the world.  This is insane.  What is even worse is that part of the $174 billion for the American people also includes $600 PLUS another $1,200 per illegal alien they did not get in the first stimulus.  The time is coming- so says Chef Vladimir Gdansk- that the Second Revolution coming will resemble more the French Revolution than the American Revolution.  People are angry that government NO LONGER REPRESENTS US!
  64. 2021 Friday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 83,579,767 confirmed cases, +585,547, 1,820,923, confirmed deaths, +10,563, and 47,162,055 confirmed recoveries, +268,693.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 20,212,820 confirmed cases, up 302,146 from yesterday’s reporting, 349,397 confirmed deaths, UP 4,520, and 9,136,262 confirmed recoveries, UP 379,112.
  65. 2021 Friday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,307,706 confirmed cases, 25,971 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 21,644 confirmed cases, 288 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 251,064 confirmed cases, 3,523 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia where they have a Ku Klux Klan-lover for a governor: currently, they have 354,766 confirmed cases, 5,081 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 426,769 confirmed cases, 3,338 confirmed deaths, and 378,038 confirmed recoveries.
  66. 2021 Friday D: The E.U. and the Chi-Coms continue working on their ‘deal’ to open markets in the communist nation to European investment.   Next, the Philippines block travel from the U.S. following detection of the new strain of the Chi-Vi in the United States.   Elsewhere, the entire African Continent (26 states as of today with most of the others soon to join)- with the exception of Eritrea- enters into the massive free trade zone it had previously set up making it the largest free trade zone since the creation of the World Trade Organization.  Meanwhile, both the U.S. State Department and the people of Hong Kong demand the release of the so-called “Hong Kong 12,” wrongly imprisoned by the thugs in Beijing.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Georgia voters come out for the final day of early voting in the two U.S. Senate run-off race- 3 million people have early voted so far.  Meanwhile the U.S. Senate overrides President Trump’s veto of the NDAA- the National Defense Authorization Act, patting themselves on the back as they do so.  The president vetoed the bill because it does nothing with the Section 230 the 45th president wanted overturned.  Chef Vladimir Gdansk writes in today’s post how the BIG TECH demon baby should be strangled in the crib now before it becomes so powerful that it is running the world (with the Chi-Coms being the main managing partner behind the scenes). 
  68. 2021 Friday F: Strange things occurring in Colorado what with the discovery of human remains in a pair of suitcases as are other human remains outside Prescott, Arizona.   Elsewhere, even though it’s against the mayor’s demands, the people of Philadelphia turn out to either participate in or to watch the big Philly Mummers parade.  Labeled a ‘protest,’ left-wing liberal government can do NOTHING to stop it.  FREEDOM OF SPEECH- PARDON JULIAN ASSANGE NOW!  Next, Portland, Oregon, police label a ‘protest’ a ‘riot’ when the mob goes berserk as darkness begins to fall.  (We believe the Chi-Coms are funding all of this mob mayhem).
  69. 2021 Friday G: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions #1621 with a $401 million jackpot: 08, 24, 53, 68, 69, and Mega 07.   Out of 186,678 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,000 apiece.  Congratulations!
  70. 2022 Saturday: We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover whatever the Chi-Coms, their allies Canada, Iran, Russia, North Korea, and other s-hole countries, as well as their stooges in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good!

Friday, January 01, 2021, Today in History:  

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

ENDNOTES:

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

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

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

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

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Trump signs the tax bill, one the left has ginned up many Americans to believe will ONLY benefit the wealthiest of Americans.  They claim he told his friends, ‘you all just got a lot richer,’ but even if this were the case, people with money employ people without money so WTF?  Stop lying about a law that will benefit all Americans.   Meanwhile, a dimwit named Robert Strong of Los Angeles, California, drunk the liberal Kool-Aid, filled a box with horse manure, wrapped it with Christmas paper, slapped a big bow on it, and hand-delivered it to the home of U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.  What a guy.

Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff- two communists- show that each candidate raised $100 million apiece over the past two months.  Just think if that money was put to better use somewhere else- like St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital instead of giving it to two Marxist candidates.  Wow. Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Education opens a probe into ties between the University of Alabama and the lab in Wuhan, China, from whence came the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- WTF? 
  63. 2020 Friday E: As the U.S. housing boom continues, developers have become fearful they may run out of land on which, to build the new communities.  Perhaps if we deported the illegal aliens in the country, we would have more available housing and land for development.  Just saying.  Meanwhile, “Pro-China Joe” and Dr. Jill Biden send Christmas greetings to the American people while the Pope at the Vatican urges every nation with vaccines for the Wuhan Virus Crisis not to forget the poor nations of the world who have no vaccines.  God bless you, Pontiff!   Elsewhere, the Washington Post says Microsoft Cloud customers have been hit hard by the Russian hacks. 
  64. 2020 Friday F: Russia opens a criminal investigation into an ally of Kremlin critic and the man the FSB tried to poison, Alexei Navalny.  Meanwhile, Gordon Chang says there is NO way the Chi-Coms and the U.S. can cooperate in space like the U.S. and Russia does.  We tend to agree.

Friday, December 25, 2020, Today in History:

Funding U.S. National Debt is akin to the Chi-Coms waging an ‘opium war’ against us- the more cash we need the more power Beijing gains

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 look forward to presenting the music of Electric Flag sometime within the next 15-20 years.

[ix] Here is what the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes- when government is shutdown or a pandemic shuts down everything, EVERY government employee furloughed or deemed non-essential, whether school teachers of members of elective offices should not receive paychecks until everything returns to normal.  WTF should school teachers be sitting home, watching daytime TV, eating bonbons, and drinking booze be paid?  They are NOT working.  You want a f**king paycheck, take your worthless asses back to work.

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
