  39. 1960 Sunday: Founder of the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad, calls for a ‘black state.’[iii].   (Note- wasn’t the nation of Liberia created to be the first ‘black state?’).  The sad thing is, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted the American people to be integrated, intermixed, and one harmonious people.  That was his dream so anything contrary to that dream is nothing more than bullshit and what’s even worse, six decades later America-haters would be trying to tear it all asunder.

  63. 2017 Monday: After less than two weeks, foul-mouth Anthony Scaramucci, aka the Mooch- is forced out of his position as communications director for Donald Trump’s White House.  The next to get the boot is the wily 5th U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.  This loser first became secretary on January 20, 2017 and served under President Donald J. Trump from then until today.  His replacement, the 5.5th Acting U.S. Secretary of the DHS Elaine Duke assumed office.  She would serve until December 06, 2017.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: The 104th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to replace 99th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement.  He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later.  Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.  Little did they know they would not have to worry about that. [vi] Meanwhile, Facebook announces a major moment of virtue-signaling as it announces it ‘removed Russian-linked accounts that are attempting to interfere in the November 2018 Elections.’[vii] 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor.  Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  66. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women.  He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him.

Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
  71. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 198,497,926 confirmed cases, +525,446, 4,232,079 confirmed deaths, +8,931 and 179,252,925 confirmed recoveries, +368,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,743,144 confirmed cases, UP 65,394 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,310 confirmed deaths, UP 380, [ix] and 29,666,084 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,303.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,868 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 93,210 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  76. 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 $4.367 per gallon, $2.972 in Florida, $4.092 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.919.  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- Curacao: $4.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,587,535,043,912 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 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.
  77.  2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 130 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘Booty Call Mattress,’ aka the squealing swamp hog of the Everglades, aka the yowling midnight lemur to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 36th day since her one and only visit to the border and again to have done nothing about it.  Okay, One American News always presents the costs of illegal immigration for the American People.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegals pouring across the southern border: $635,102,752.  Absolutely shocking.  Horrible we know.  Next, here is the cost for this year: $231,328,045,120.  Imagine all this money going to care for ILLEGAL ALIENS!  Next, here are the numbers estimated to have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,376,624.  Finally, here are the CONSERVATIVE estimates as to how many illegal aliens are roaming the land: 36,376,662.  (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).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an army of storm troopers the Democrats can deploy against the rest of us (which is why ammunition is flying off the shelves right now).
  78. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has written a letter to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, urging her NOT to include mass amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the country.  She won’t listen.  
  79. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The Biden regime is threatening a new round of lockdowns and restrictions if more Americans don’t rush out and get vaccinated against the Chi-Vi.   Last week, there was mention of the NEW Lambda variant out of Peru being worse than the Delta variant and then within a day, all talk of the Lambda variant (SARS-CoV-2) vanished out of the window, and it was back to pounding the Delta drums.   Amazing how the libs continue guiding all talk on the Chi-Vi and how everyone must rush out and get vaccinated.  Funny that there are more infections among VACCINATED Americans than among unvaccinated.  Something ain’t right here, folks.   Add to that the fact that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says that mRNA vaccines for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu could be approved for widespread use by next month.  Pushing, pushing, pushing!
  80. 2021 Saturday I: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3582 what with a $12 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 16, 18, 30, 32, 38, and Mega 05.  Out of 97,148 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,413 apiece.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #868 with a jackpot of $199 million up for grabs: 01, 21, 22, 34, 47, and Powerball 04.  Out of 83,515 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $44,999.
  81. 2022 Sunday: IF things do not change over the next two election cycles, we may need to become friendly with the Chi-Coms.  I remember when the country was committed to being the best whereas now, we are ripping ourselves apart, thanks in large part to Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, and other of our enemies’ machinations.  Race is the Achilles heel of the United States and if our enemies continue noodling away at the seams, at some point, the nation is going to explode.  Add to that the fact that we cannot trust our elected leaders who all seem to be in the pay of Beijing and one can see the old maxim is true: the capitalists will sell the communists the rope with which the communists hang the capitalists.  Personally, I think it’s too late and my family and I are considering relocating to Ireland as a safe haven from the looming storm.  What is the point in remaining in country that is ripping itself to shreds?  Let me know what you all think.  Thanks- Chef Elmer K.

This artwork is #0908 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Central Coast.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After the Beach Boys went through starts and fits back in the 1960s over Brian Wilson’s “Smile” project, an abbreviated form “Smiley Smile” hit record store shelves on September 16, 1967 (see Monday, May 23, 2022) and since it was nowhere near the project envisioned by composer Brian Wilson, it was considered a flop.  Well, years later, Brian Wilson said, “Screw it,” and relaunched the entire project with a series of live performances and a live album culled from the performance.  “Brian Wilson Presents Smile” came out on September 28, 2004, and is a mind-blowing, joyous project to behold.  NO ONE in his, her, or its right mind questions the fact that Brian Wilson is not an innovative, musical genius, certainly not anyone with sufficient gray matter, that’s for sure.  We hope you will seek this album out and that you will add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended music- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[vi] Both of President Donald J. Trump’s two court picks Neil Gorsuch (#113) and Brett Kavanaugh (#114) have voted against the president who nominated them more often than they have not- just like Associate Justice Kennedy!  What is it about Republican picks?

[vii] Regarding the Russians and election interference, what the f**k else is new?  They have been doing this sort of crap since Josef Stalin was running the country.

  64. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  We do our best to keep track of this so here is today’s assessment: ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the catastrophe, no, the calamity occurring on our southern border and the ‘laughing hyena,’ “Kooky,” has yet to make an appearance there in 76 days.  (Note- we say that were she in the professional foodservice business and didn’t show up on the first day, we would have terminated her worthless ass.  Just saying).  One America News updated their figures on the ongoing border disaster.  Here we go: (1) Cost to U.S. taxpayers on this day: $568,861,120.  Next, (2) Cost of caring for this blitzkrieg of illegals at this point as 2021: $171,527,815,168.  Imagine if this money went into rebuilding our economy, the one the Chi-Coms and the Democrats conspired to TRASH?  Wow.  Next, (3) the numbers of wet***ks who have crossed so far this year: 1,758,022.  Finally, (4) here are the number of illegals in the country as said by One America News: 35,758,024.  (Note- we have said the dwindling number as far back as 2009 was 35 million with a high of 50 million or more; well, we believe the sparse number is now around 50 million with a high of 80-85 million.  These people are sucking away at our resources.  We must deport all of them NOW.  Anyone who disagrees can go f**k themselves. 
  65. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The citizens of Budapest, Hungary, and across that fabled nation are taking to the streets in protest of the Chi-Coms’ planned building of a Chi-Com university with which they can continue spreading their cancerous ideology.  We stand with the citizens of Hungary and every other nation that has been subjected to the harsh tyranny of communism in their fight to remain free.  NO CHI-COMS.  Not now.  Not ever.  Boot them and their Belt and Roads crap project out of every nation (and you wonder why our numbers are currently in the crapper once again.  Oh, well…)  In other news, a nebulous tie between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Hunter Biden continues to emerge as we now know that lobbyists in their employ reached out to Ukrainian oligarchs so they could obtain meetings with Mrs. Clinton for a certain price, of course. 
  66. 2021 Sunday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information–  Things continue getting worse for Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci by the day.  We now know that Fauci’s organization- the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, aka NIAID- reportedly gave the Wuhan Institute of Virology $826,000 to study the Horseshoe Bat viruses and to accomplish Gain of Function tasks.  Thus, we have the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is calling on the compromised Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci to resign.  NOW.  In other interesting news, Judge Jeanine Pirro on her Fox News Channel program yesterday shared a video in which, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci back in early 2017 PREDICTED that the (Trump) administration was going to find itself confronted with a medical challenge the likes of which we hadn’t seen.  Amazing how the minute doctor was able to prophesize the coming of the global pandemic, almost as though he had advance notice.  Wow.  The deeper we dig the worse filth turns up.   Fauci was in the ‘anti-Trump camp’ from the start.  This story will one day shock the entire world.
  67. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– Yesterday, during the GOP convention in the Peach State, the GOP censured Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO, while the convention was ongoing.  Wow.  (Note- former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA 9th congressional district, should seek this job in 2022).   Next, crumbling Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-C, says that he is ‘not going to relinquish his pandemic emergency powers.’  This guy most likely will be gone come November; he still wants to stick it to the citizens of his state including fellow Democrats.  Speaking of asinine state chief executives, Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, pitches a new plan with which to provide unemployment benefits to part-time workers without jobs.  Wow. Love throwing around taxpayer money even though you won’t reopen your state.  What is wrong with this picture?   Finally, the U.S. Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Karen Gibson says she is more ‘fearful of cyberattack than she is of another January 06, 2021.’  Amen.
  68. 2021 Sunday J: New Category!  Moron News– New York’s shame, Rep. Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district (Joe Crowley, when are you going to take back your old seat?) said something truly stupid, truly, truly stupid- ‘In order to stop violent crime, the answer is to build fewer prisons and jails.’ Folks, this dimwitted horse’s ass never fails to disappoint, she will show her stupidity day after day after day and without being prodded to do so.  In reward, we will no longer call her by her professional name of ‘Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ but will go with her birth name of ‘Sandy “The Fly” Cortez.’
  69. 2022 Monday: How many cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu will see one year from last year?  The numbers last year were less than this year’s tally so far.  However, it’s an election year so this year, the numbers are going to be far higher…it’s the only way the Dems can win…

  57. 2005 Monday: About 50 miles north of Kabul, Afghanistan, something goes awry at a munitions dump.  The place blows up killing dozens of people with no full accounting of how many took a one-way trip to meet with Allah or how many others were left devastated one way or another.  Wow.

  61. 2009 Saturday: The United Nations ORDERS- like that means anything- the Israelis to stop evicting Palestinians from East Jerusalem.  Oh, boohoo, boot them out and build housing for your people.   Elsewhere, inside a so-called ‘civilian safe zone,’ Sri Lankan Army troops go on a rampage and kill 91 people and wound another 87.  Not sure as to WHY they did what they did but they did it well.
  62. 2010 Sunday: The European Union and International Monetary Fund present Greece with 120 billion Euro bailout packages, to help rid them of their sovereign debt.   Elsewhere, following the bombing of the Mogadishu mosque yesterday, the death toll rises to 45 and the focus falls on the al-Qaida trash.  Light them up.
  63. 2011 Monday: As the news continues to spread about whacking Osama bin Laden, tens of thousands of people gather at Ground Zero in New York City as well as in other places around the country to celebrate the death of this terrorist POS.  The world also learns that in accordance with Islamic law, U.S. military authorities buried him via a sea burial in the Indian Ocean so that a burial site on land would not become a terrorist shrine.  The Allies did the same thing with the Nazis executed at Nuremburg.  They were cremated and went into a river.
  64. 2012 Wednesday: 2012 U.S. presidential candidate Newt Gingrich suspends his campaign for the Republican nomination.   Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrives in Beijing for high-level talks with her opposites as well as find ways to line her and her hubby Bill’s pockets with Chi-Com cash.  While on site, she meets with blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng. 
  65. 2013 Thursday: Conservationists determine poachers killed the last known rhinoceroses in Mozambique; these poachers worked with game rangers responsible for protecting them.  Meanwhile, a North Korean court sentences American Kenneth Bae to 15 years of hard labor for committing criminal acts against the regime.  Yeah, right.  The Obama administration begs for amnesty.
  66. 2014 Friday: According to Brainy History, Apple and Samsung achieved mixed victory in a patent suit settlement; Samsung will owe Apple about $120 million, and Apple will owe Samsung about $158,000; the court found both parties to have infringed on each other’s patents.  Elsewhere, fighting continues in eastern Ukraine as the Ukrainians claim they have killed numerous Russians and destroyed assets although two Ukrainian helicopters were reportedly shot down.   In the city of Odessa, Ukrainians are going after Russians with a vengeance.  Get those SOBS.
  67. 2015 Saturday: In a boxing match that shattered financial records for the sport, Floyd Mayweather Jr. beats Manny Pacquiao on points in 12 rounds in the world unification welterweight title bout.  What a fight.  Congratulations to Mr. Mayweather.   Elsewhere, as the Nigerian military continues fighting through the Sambisa Forest, the government announces that another 234 women and girls have been rescued from the clutches of the Islamist group, Boko Haram.
  68. 2016 Monday: The ‘religion of peace’ is on the move yet again, this time in Baghdad, Iraq, where three separate bombings claim the lives of at least 14 poor souls including a number of Shiite pilgrims while the Syrian Army takes up positions around its prison in the city of Hama where violent prisoners have overthrown the prison staff and are holding them as hostages.  What will President Bashar al-Assad do?  We think he’ll employ poison gas inside the prison killing all of them (and the guards).   
  69. 2016 Monday A: Elsewhere, the Catholic Church in the Philippines urges its followers to reject Roderigo Duterte who seems to be little more than a whack job.  Down in Venezuela, El Presidente Nicolas Maduro orders clocks in his nation to be moved forward by half-an-hour since the country is facing a major electricity shortage and that somehow moving the clocks up by 30 minutes will alleviate the suffering of the people.  YOU know what will alleviate their suffering?  Your fat neck dangling from a noose in the center of Caracas.  POS communist.
  70. 2017 Tuesday: Still angry from yesterday’s provocative overflight of the Korean Peninsula by two U.S. B-1B heavy bombers, Kim Jong Un warns the world that due to President Donald J. Trump’s belligerent stance against the peaceful Democratic Republic of North Korea, the military is going to accelerate its nuclear weapons programs and ‘could test a nuke at any time’ so there.  Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Times reports that Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro is going to ‘draft a new constitution’ seeing as how violent mobs are protesting his regime in the streets.
  71. 2018 Wednesday: Disaster befalls romaine lettuce in Yuma, Arizona, as a massive e. coli outbreak sickens at least 121 people across 25 states killing one in the process.  Grocery stores around the country put out immediate recalls and stop-sales on all romaine lettuces, fresh and packaged, coming out of the region.   Elsewhere, as a show of good faith, ahead of the summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the North Koreans release the last three American detainees they have been keeping as a potential future trump card.
  72. 2019 Thursday: Iowa passes one of the strictest abortion bans saying ‘can’t happen’ after the detection of a fetal heartbeat.  Good for them.   Elsewhere, Senator Michael Bennet, D-CO, says he is in the running for the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  No one cares.  Meanwhile, Facebook and Instagram ban several big names from its site for spreading violence and hate.  Among the folks bumped off the sites are Alex Jones, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, Milo Yiannopoulos, and several others.  We shall see.
  73. 2020 Saturday: After California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom orders ONLY the beaches of Orange County closed, the sheriff of the county says, ‘he will not enforce the order.’  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19- Wuhan Flu front- confirmed global cases are 3,424,254; confirmed deaths sit at 243,674; and confirmed recoveries are 1,092,715.  In the United States, the Kung Flu Virus Crisis- given us by the communist Chinese- is thus: confirmed cases sit at 1,157,782, confirmed deaths at 67,046, and confirmed recoveries are 150,934.  Meanwhile, the communist Chinese claim the following numbers (let’s see if they have changed): confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785!  Which is almost the same as one week ago, lying scumbags.  Around the United States, more states continue reopening and no upticks in the Coronavirus Crisis are seen so to all authoritarian governors out there, you better lighten up.  (It is interesting to note that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is still whining about ‘Confederate and swastika flags being seen at protests but every piece of film we have looked at, those flags are nowhere to behold.  ANTIFA- do your job, go to Michigan, and protest this b***h).
  74. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 153,467,379 confirmed cases, +667,534, 3,215,537  confirmed deaths, +9,349, and 131,436,594 confirmed recoveries, +71,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,178,844 confirmed cases, UP 29,104 from yesterday’s reporting, 591,056 confirmed deaths, UP 306,[viii] and 25,777,864 confirmed recoveries, UP 45,866.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix] 
  75. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 276,388 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 281.6 days, 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 404,812 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,586 deaths. 
  76. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,745,332 confirmed cases, 61,920 confirmed deaths, and 1,993,102 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,242,778 confirmed cases, 35,269 confirmed deaths, and 1,805,359 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,580 confirmed cases, 483 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 406,908 confirmed cases, 5,563 confirmed deaths, and 191,652 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Alaska, a once reliable DEEP RED state before the Democratic-Socialists corrupted it: they have 65,409 confirmed cases, 341 confirmed deaths, and 56,476 confirmed recoveries.[x]   Meanwhile, Governor Brian Kemp, R-GA, is lifting ALL remaining COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions.
  77. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,554 confirmed cases, 6,366 confirmed deaths, and 830,878 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Honduras, overloaded with way too many illegal aliens seeking asylum under Joe Biden: 213,167 cases of the virus, 5,318 confirmed deaths and 78,806 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  78. 2021 Sunday D:  Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,874.85, DOWN 185.51 points (-0.54%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,962.98, DOWN 119.86 points (-0.85%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,181.17, DOWN 30.30 points (-0.72%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.49 per barrel, -0.09 (-0.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,768.80 per troy oz., +1.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.92 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.24%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,203.90 per troy oz, -1.30 (-0.11%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, -0.01 (-0.27%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,934.50 per troy oz, -17.48 (-0.59%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,500.00 per troy oz., +150.00 (+0.51%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.21.     In Mozambican Metical, one greenback equals 57.02 and in Myanmar Kyat, a buck equals 1,550.00 and in Nicaraguan Córdoba, one dollar equals 34.85 of theirs.[xv]  
  79. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.040 per gallon, $2.780 in Florida, $3.790 in Hawaii, and $3.471 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- New Hampshire: $2.766.  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 seventh lowest gasoline price in the world- Nigeria: $1.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,240,289,802,772 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.  In other business news, Berkshire-Hathaway bigwig Warren Buffet is celebrating 1st quarter earnings in 2021 of $11.7 billion.  He also is warning investors NOT to gamble on stocks.   Meanwhile, in other economic news that will trash the U.S. economy, Joe Biden is QUIETLY preparing a massive increase in Food Stamps, even higher than the one his former (well, could still be the current) boss, Barack Hussein Obama had and without going via the U.S. Congress.  Yet another unilateral move that will see millions of dollars going to illegal aliens.
  80. 2021 Sunday F: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Kansas City, Missouri- 71-year-old Joseph Naumann told Newsmax TV that ‘it’s wrong for Joe Biden to use his Catholic ‘faith’ because it misguides Catholic listeners.’  Look, WE believe (and I’m a Jew- Mo) that the Roman Catholic Church should excommunicate Joe Biden and other scurrilous, reprobate Catholics such as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the decrepit nonagenarian because she like he are big PROPONENTS of the Pro-Death Movement and NOT because they believe women have a right to control their own bodies but because they make money off it via campaign contributions.
  81. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Like Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is having a challenging time within her party for being the neo-lib that she is by going against President Donald J. Trump.  She is expected to be removed from GOP leadership by June at the latest.   Next former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says that ‘Lockheed-Martin possesses UFO wreckage. This is getting better all the time.   We are looking forward to the upcoming UFO report next month- if the feds actually release it.  Elsewhere, the runoff for the U.S. House seat in Texas 6th congressional district is between two Republicans: Susan Wright (19.2%), backed by President Donald J. Trump and Jake Ellzey (13.8%), which has the Democrats sobbing gobs of tears as they genuinely thought they were going to propel third-place runner-up Jana Lynne Sanchez (13.4%) into the House to help a beleaguered “Mumbles” Pelosi.  
  82. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, continues sharing his views on Afghanistan and says we must withdraw from the country NOW.  We concur wholeheartedly and think we should have been out of there before President George W. Bush left office (and should never have gone into Iraq).  Since going to that forlorn country, Senator Paul says we have blown $825 billion to 1 trillion building roads and schools, protecting women, and doing other non-war-fighting jobs at great cost to our country in resources and human lives.  (Note- I said yesterday that the Democrats and Neocons are seeking a “Gulf of Tonkin Incident” so they can keep forces in that s—hole country in perpetuity and to continue reaping the wealth from the Military-Industrial-Political Complex- Mo).
  83. 2021 Sunday I: Political News III– The family of the late Ashli Babbitt is suing the Capitol Hill Police Department for her murder on January 06, 2021.  We still don’t know who fired the fatal shot (but we are learning more about the officer by the day.  We believe her killing was preordained that the House speaker- in control of the Capitol Hill Police Department- wanted to make sure someone lost their life in this FALSE FLAG OPERATION)- Mo).   Elsewhere, the U.S. State Department has announced that there is “NO TRUTH” regarding a prisoner swap with the Iranians.   Meanwhile, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, says he remains hopeful on police reform occurring in the U.S. Senate.  Finally, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says of Joe Biden’s $2.1 trillion infrastructure bill that it’s ‘like someone with a new credit card.’   Finally, famed economic adviser Larry Kudlow says Joe Biden’s BIG GOVERNMENT PUSH is destabilizing and bad for the United States.’
  84. 2021 Sunday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is warning of a “U.S.-communist China Armageddon.”  Amen, Mr. Secretary, amen.   Next, Kim Jong Un warns the U.S. of GRAVE CONSEQUENCES over Joe Biden’s mumbling, stumbling speech the other day on the 99th day of his regime before a Joint Session of the U.S. Congress.   Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is being forced to answer for his personal spending.  Oooh, BoJo could be going down.  Meanwhile, riotous soccer fans stormed Manchester United’s field over the U.S.-based owners proposing the ‘Super Soccer League’ that would feature only elite teams and would be a power grab by wealthy billionaires.   Finally, a Cuban dissident’s hunger strike is challenging the communist regime. 
  85. 2021 Sunday K: Miscellaneous News I– Yesterday, the Empire State Building celebrated its 90th birthday.  Next, SpaceX’s Dragon Capsule returned four astronauts back from the International Space Station in the first nighttime landing in the Gulf of Mexico since the Apollo missions.  Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has another job (not that she shows up for any of them): she is now going to be the head of the National Space Council.
  86. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Formed in the late 1950s as the Hawks, the group that would come to be known as the Band evolved in 1967.  Featuring four Canadians and one American, the band erupted onto the stage with their first album, “Music from the Big Pink,” (July 01, 1968).  In some ways, the band was a throwback in that having performed with Bob Dylan for a lengthy time, they combined elements of acoustic folks with rock and roll with the music of the prairies, the back-hills, and other American-Canadian forms in an extremely alluring package of sound.  The band features Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  Their first album touched the souls of many and put them on a path to stardom, one that would take them to Woodstock in 1969 and beyond.  One of the big hits was “The Weight.”  What we have here is the 50th anniversary edition of this celebrated album, “Music from Big Pink 50th Anniversary Edition,” a beefed-up effort featuring all manner of additional gems for your listening pleasure.  The album came out on January 01, 2018.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did, of that, we guarantee.

  22. 1918 Tuesday: British forces in the Middle East continue rolling up the Ottoman Turks.  The Ottoman Empire was a crumbling entity, long known as the “Sick Man of Europe” because it was a jaded, hollow empire just awaiting the right set of circumstances to bring about its collapse.   That collapse was coming.

  66. 2011 Saturday: As the Libyan civil war continues to rage, Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi says he is ‘willing to enter into a ceasefire but BOTH sides must agree to it, not just his side.’  Sadly, for the Libyan leader, his youngest son, Saif al-Arab Gaddafi and three of his children are killed in a NATO airstrike.  How did we end up fighting in this war?

  75. 2020 Thursday: Thanks to the Kung Flu trashing the United States, another 3.6 million unemployment claims pushes total unemployment numbers for Americans over 30 million.  AND the Chinese find offense in the growing world anger directed towards them!  Millions of people around the world now believe that COVID-19 was something deliberately released onto the world following Beijing being forced to sign the new U.S.-China Trade Accord.  We shall see.  Current numbers for the Wuhan Virus Crisis Pandemic for the world rest at 3,249,022 confirmed cases what with 230,804 confirmed deaths but 1,006,112 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the United States, confirmed cases rest at 1,079,780, confirmed deaths stand at 62,603 but confirmed recoveries are 127,950.  Additionally, more states are beginning to release restrictions and businesses are beginning to reopen.  However, in California, Gov.

Newsom is spending $1 billion in communist China to purchase (shoddy) PPE items for the state.  F**king China lover.

Trump a xenophobe for cutting off travel from communist China and then from Europe?  Well, now Joe Biden has cut off travel from India seeing as how they are in a big mess with the Chi-Vi.  Sucks to be right next door to China because it would seem Beijing has no problem in sending the disease across its borders and into others.  Anyhow, the U.S. now is going to export the Pfizer vaccine to Mexico to help them with their cases.   Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control says that it was ANXIETY and NOT the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that caused all the adverse effects on people with blood clots, mental issues, and other issues connected to the vaccine.   Elsewhere, Florida lawmakers have moved on a bill banning COVID-19 passports.  Good.  We don’t have them for HIV-AIDS-infected people, we sure as hell don’t need them for the Chi-Com flu.   Speaking of the vaccines and how effective that it is, Arizona state lawmaker Alma Hernandez, Democrat, 3rd house district, received both doses of the Chi-Vi vaccine and just tested positive for the ‘VID.   Finally, scientists are encouraging the World Health Organization to look BEYOND animals for the human connection on the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.

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

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

  53. 2003 Wednesday: U.S. forces open fire on a group of Iraqi protesters in Fallujah, Iraq, after they began throwing things and making threats.  This would be the focal point for the buildup to what would become known as the Battle of Fallujah in 2004, a make-or-break effort in the unnecessary invasion launched by the George W. Bush administration.  (Note- we think this is a prime example of the Deep State influencing a president into a war and then when it goes wrong, they abandon them to their fate). 
  54. 2004 Thursday: In Fallujah, Iraq, violent jihadists begin assaulting U.S. forces.  This leads to amplified intensity on both sides as the American troops call in fire missions and air support such as C-130 gunships which come in station on scene and begin riddling the jihadis with gatling guns and rockets.  A recent poll released by CNN says that a majority of Iraqis see the Americans as OCCUPIERS while a small minority sees them as liberators.  What a flipping mess.

Bush administration alleging that the Bush administration and allies such as AT&T and the NSA maintain secret computer rooms where the Bush administration conducts surveillance on not only foreign terror suspects but on the American people.  The Bush administration then demonstrates that what the EFF alleges to be true is true by trying to use the State Secrets Privilege to block the lawsuit against AT&T and the NSA.  President Bush- why not flipping just say that YOU are spying on the American people?  WTF?  (Never really liked the Bushes but this is bad, really bad).
  57. 2007 Sunday: The so-called ‘religion of peace’ is busy today.  In Iraq, a mosque in Karbala suffers a suicide bombing that blows 55 worshippers up and, on their way, to meet with Allah far sooner than any of them may have planned.  Meanwhile, farther east in Pakistan, a suicide bombing there blows another 22 people to meet with Allah while also wounding several government officials and loads of other people going about their daily lives.

  59. 2009 Wednesday: RINO Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania decides to leap aboard the Obama train hoping to ride to future success on the coattails of the Bamster.  He switches from being a ‘Republican’ to being a Democrat.  Woo-ooo, good for you, loser.  A year later, the self-serving maggot would lose his seat to Pat Toomey.  No one likes rats, Senator Specter, no one.
  60. 2010 Thursday: A Palestinian mob approaches the Gaza-Israeli border and the are heaving chunks of concrete, rocks, and setting things on fire.  The Israeli Defense Forces eventually are forced to defend themselves and a young Palestinian man lies dead while the rest of them scramble off like the rats they are.  Gaza, do something to help your people instead of maintaining them in generational poverty and misery.  It’s not Israel’s fault.
  61. 2011 Friday: Thanks to the Obama Administration’s horrible handling of the U.S. economy and for pushing Obamacare, Panasonic Corporation reportedly plans to announce it will cut 40,000 jobs.  Meanwhile, troublemaker former one-term U.S. President Jimmy Carter shares his views on North Korea with the world.  He just returned from visiting the godforsaken country and says that the ‘U.S. and South Korea must stop starving the North Korean people, that it’s a violation of human rights’ and a whole bunch of other crap.  Jimmy: STFU.
  62. 2012 Sunday: The government of Bashar al-Assad accuses UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon of ‘encouraging attacks on the government.’  Elsewhere, as Chi-Coms scour Beijing searching for blind dissident Chen Guangcheng who fled house arrest and into the streets, rumors are flying that he somehow made his way to the U.S. Embassy where he sought refuge.  Not good for U.S.-Chi-Com relations but it is what it is.
  63. 2013 Monday: During the new swearing in ceremony of Enrico Letta, an Italian man shoots and wounds two police officers outside Palazzo Chigi.  Elsewhere, original bassist with the Steve Miller Band[viii]—Lonnie Turner—died on this date in Lebanon, Oregon, at age 66.

  68. 2019 Sunday: Disney’s Marvel movie, “Avengers: Endgame,” becomes the first film to generate more than a billion dollars on its release- in this case, $1.2 billion.  Wow.  Meanwhile, in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” “The Long Night” episode surpasses “The Lord of the Rings” Battle of Helms Deep (44 minutes) for the longest battle scene in movie history with a gory battle almost 88 minutes in length.  It’s a great one to be sure.  Look for it.   Elsewhere, in West Chester Township, Ohio, police stumble upon four family members shot to death in an apartment.  They are searching for the killer.  
  69. 2020 Tuesday: News continues to break about “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s sexual assault of then-U.S. Senate staffer Tara Reade in 1993.  Meanwhile, Hillary Rodham Clinton- mum about those assault allegations- endorses former Vice President Biden for president on this day.  On the COVID-19 front, confirmed cases around the world now sit at 3,083,467 what with confirmed deaths at 213,824 but 915,988 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, confirmed cases rests at 1,033,721, confirmed deaths at 58,947, but number of confirmed recoveries sits at 117,690, which is great.  Various states are reopening in bits and pieces and the outlook of Americans is that things are going to get better, and they are ready to return to work now.  Meanwhile, calls continue going out as to why famed ‘anti-fascist group,’ ANTIFA, is not in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, and other states with left-wing despotic governors doing battle with these would-be dictators.

  76. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Joe Biden is sending $310 million to Guatemala to ‘help them’ stem the tide of illegal aliens flowing north through their country to the United States; we’ll see.  Speaking of the border, Customs and Border Patrol reports that last month, the feds took 170,000 illegal aliens into custody.   Elsewhere, the Biden regime-controlled U.S. Department of Justice has quietly repealed Trump era restrictions on the amount of federal aid going to ‘sanctuary cities’ and ‘sanctuary states.’   Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is blasting the Biden regime for NOT permitting him entry into the illegal alien holding pens in Donna, Texas.
  77. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm is receiving loads of criticism over the numerous conflicts of interest surrounding her such as her connections to an electric vehicle automaker.   The secretary has millions of dollars of stock in Proterra, a company that will benefit- as will she- depending upon which way she goes in doling out taxpayer dollars.  Wow.  Next, Joe Biden taps anti-Trumper Harris County, Texas, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement, aka ICE.   Meanwhile, tonight’s ‘Joe Biden address to a joint session of Congress’ will be devoid of a ‘designated survivor.’  So says White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki because hardly anyone will be in attendance.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday H: Joe Biden Regime News II– Tonight is the NIGHT, folks, Joe is going to reveal yet another multi-trillion bill, his so-called “Family Plan,” that will require of ALL Americans forced preschool for 3-and-4-year-olds so we can indoctrinate the kids at an earlier age and teach them to rat out their parents.  This is NOT good, and parents must resist this crap.  Political strategist says that Joe Biden ‘won’t reveal the sticker shock’ which means it is going to be COSTLY.   Next, Joe Biden is going to name longtime Marxist political hack, Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel to become U.S. ambassador to Japan.  Finally, former governor and Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Eric Greitens says that “Biden-Harris first one-hundred days is marked by failure.”  You are preaching to the choir, sir.  (Note- although we mentioned this yesterday, we will mention it again- the Washington Post, aka WAPO, says it ‘won’t fact check “Pro-China Joe” Biden the way it did President Donald J. Trump.’  Wow).[xxi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘Biden administration (i.e., the regime) displays schizophrenic undertones as it seeks de-escalation and confrontation at the same time.’  Absolutely true.  Next, as the truth continues to hit the presses over Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations in doing business with Iran while a private citizen, Congressman Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that the allegations against ‘Lurch’ appear to be ‘somewhat treasonous.’   Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district says, ‘Kerry MUST resign.’  We concur.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that the U.S. pullout of Afghanistan could lead to a takeover of the country by the Taliban.  Finally, the U.S. sees major rollbacks on the sanctions placed atop Iran so the U.S. can return to the bogus Iran nuclear deal.
  80. 2021 Wednesday J: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– In the craziest news of the day, we learn that crackhead/pedophile presidential son, Hunter “Crack Pipe” Biden is going to teach a class on FAKE NEWS at New Orleans’ Tulane University.  WTF?  In other whacked-out news, Democrats are demanding that the FCC block the sale of a popular radio station so that Miami Latinos CANNOT listen to conservative talk radio.  WTF?  Meanwhile, co-founder of the San Francisco-based $2 billion startup company, Iterable, Justin Zhu, was fired for micro-dosing LSD prior to a board meeting back in 2019.  Seems rather late to be terminating someone for something that occurred 2.5-3 years ago.  Strange.  Finally, a contestant on “Jeopardy!” made the ‘OK’ gesture and is under fire for being a white supremacist.  People, give it a F***ING REST already.  Enough is enough.
  81. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that while the Dems claim to SUPPORT Israel, they put forth a true anti-Semite POS such as Colin Kahl for the No. 3 position at the Pentagon: the undersecretary for policy.  (Note- Mr. Kahl says he will take a bipartisan approach to his job.  Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy- what a guy).  Next, President Donald J. Trump says of Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, that in so many words, she is a ‘LOSER.’   Moving on, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, is trying to save his job by signing a tough abortion bill preventing abortion for genetic abnormalities.   Meanwhile, Congressmen Jeff Duncan, R-SC 3rd congressional district, and Doug Lamborn, R-CO 5th congressional district, are pushing back HARD on the Biden’s regime pushing of the bogus Critical Race Theory which is Critical Race Theory BS.  Good for you gentlemen!  Finally, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘don’t denigrate Arizona’s 2020 Election audit.’  Amen.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– In some shocking news today, the feds swooped down on ‘America’s Mayor’ and Donald J. Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and removed all of his electronic devices in an early morning raid.  Mr. Giuliani offered to meet with the authorities and to hand over his devices but no, much like they did during the raid on Roger Stone’s home, they wanted to INTIMIDATE the man, trying to tie to him the crimes committed by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine.  Likewise, they also raided the home of Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, two more big Trump supporters and legal eagles.   In other news, as California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to whine and cry over the recall effort against him, one of the recall advisers says that ‘one-third of the signatories are Democrats, one-third are independents, and one-third are Republicans.’  Everyone wants Gavin Newsom OUT of office ASAP.[xxii]   Finally, Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is working with Stephen Miller to defeat Joe Biden’s RACIST policies on equity rather than equality when it comes to providing aid to farmers.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– An alternate juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial says that ‘mob riots, protests, and the racial climate did NOT influence the jury’s decision.’  Sure.  Uh huh, of course not.  Next, following a cop shooting of a black suspect, a North Carolina judge denies a request for the video cam footage.   Next, a video shows that a California man died while the cops were holding him.  Here we go again.   Regarding firearms, a new poll shows that support for heavier gun laws is lacking support among the American people.
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: Notable Departure– NASA Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins is dead at the age of 90.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3555 with a $41 million pot on the line tonight: 14, 18, 19, 33, 37, and Mega 19.  Out of 116,245 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $41,234.  The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in Coarsegold, CA 93614.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #841 with a $116 million pot on the line: 16, 18, 35, 39, 53, and Powerball 21.   Out of 55,428 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $859,829.  The winning ticket was sold at Stater Brothers 188 in Grand Terrace, CA 92313.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: The Wrap-Up– Amazing to see Joe Biden’s ‘address’ in which, he praised the police, noting most of them are okay.  Here is how socialism works- you grind law enforcement and the military in the dirt, kick them in the teeth, beat them up, purge them, and then when they can take no more, you make a deal: IF you don’t want things to return to the way they were- you being public enemies and all- you will now serve as storm-troopers and go after our enemies.  YOU can do whatever you want to them and without any oversight or parameters.  This is evil- glad I am now in Israel- Mo.  We love and cherish our freedoms… Meanwhile, the three people involved in the death of Ahmaud Arbery have been indicted on hate crimes charges.   A federal grand jury indicted Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan today which is good.  These three crackers have much for which to answer.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,831 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,076 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 463 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  93. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Sensing that Joe Biden is on the verge of mental collapse, Russia once again warned the United States of potential retaliation over America’s asinine sanctions.   Meanwhile, Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, says he ‘witnessed ample signs of Russian war crimes in Ukraine’ during a recent visit to that war-torn country.  Next, reports continue to arise of the Russian navy employing dolphins to guard their Black Sea base at Sebastopol.  This has been tried before but has never proven successful.  Still, with the Russkies, one never knows.
  94. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The Russians have raised rocket and missile attacks on Ukraine once again.  Several blasts rocked Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, today.   The British minister of defense- Ben Wallace- says that ‘Russia could become a cancerous growth in Ukraine.’  Meanwhile, Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax this evening that if Russia were to use tactical nukes in Ukraine, ‘all bets would be off, and the U.S. must put troops on the ground in direct conflict with the Russkies.’  This is becoming more ludicrous by the day.  We cannot fight a land war with Russia in eastern Europe, it’s impossible to do and will lead to the Chi-Coms becoming the world’s master.  Not good.
  95. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been the nation’s ‘border czar’ for the past 391 days and even worse, she has not arrived to do her job in 305 days.  Our estimates of the rising costs associated with rising numbers of illegal aliens continues breaking records every day.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 118 days is $752,442,887.  Next, the cost of caring for the detritus of the world since the Biden-Harris regime grabbed power on January 20, 2021, is $42,498,248,630.  The number of illegal aliens encountered at the border since January 01, 2022, is approximately 1,203,637.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 46,635,294.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 95-to-130 million which is unsustainable for any country and must be fixed now.  Deport ALL of them.  Now.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  96. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says the southern border is ‘broken because of Joe Biden’s attitude.’  George P. Bush, R-TX, says that the southern border is ‘out of control.’  Next, while testifying before the Congress, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the only solution for solving the border crisis is to give every illegal alien who has swarmed across it amnesty.  Folks, not only this insane, it’s also the kill stroke for the United States.  It’s over, it’s done, it’s finished.  In other border-related news, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is seeking donations with which to bus illegal aliens into Washington, D.C.  While we think this is great, how about finding a way to push them back across the border into Mexico?   Simultaneously, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, is suing the Biden regime over its upcoming plan to lessen border security next month with the overturning of Title 42.  DHS Secretary Mayorkas says he believes there will be 18,000 or more encounters of illegal aliens per day once the pro-American Title 42 ends.  We must fight back against this evil.

  102. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden endorsed a new bill that will funnel assets seized from Russian oligarchs to Ukraine.  Joe also asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in aid for Ukraine which means the Biden regime will most likely skim off 12-20-percent for the Biden Family’s coffers.
  103. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll pulls NO punches and says that a large majority of Americans blame Joe Biden for skyrocketing gas prices.   In other disastrous news for the Biden regime, the Chi-Coms and Iran are going to increase their mutual defense pact.  This is a direct slap in the face of slobbering Joe Biden.  In yet another problem for the feeble U.S. ‘president’- one who could not speak today at a ‘press conference’ of sorts without going totally BLANK in his thoughts, words, and speech- parental rights groups are pushing back with growing force over Joe’s suggestion that children do not belong to their parents but to the regime.  George Orwell could not have foretold the topics of his classic novel, “1984,” than what we are seeing today.
  104. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– President Ron Klain, uh, excuse me, President Joe Biden, continues dangling the bait that the Biden regime could cancel all CURRENT student debt but not over $50,000.  Alas, it must be an election year for this carrot of the carrot of ‘reparations for slavery’ to be dangling in front of the young, dumb, and full of c*m voters.  Should Joe Biden cancel student loan debt, he will alienate all those who have struggled to pay their loans off who by far outnumber those who have not.
  105. 2022 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The House select committee investigating (yeah, right) the FALSE FLAG EVENTS of January 06, 2021, announce their plan to hold at least eight public hearings, beginning in June, in the hope of somehow influencing the voters to vote ‘D’ on their ballots in November.  We suspect their ratings will be at the bottom of the crapper.  We also suspect the American people will become even more infuriated with the regime and its allies than they are now and if- we repeat- IF- the elections are honest, the Dems are going to go the way of the dinosaur.
  106. 2022 Thursday S: Big Tech News– CNN + threw in the towel today, two full days ahead of the scheduled shutdown on April 30, 2022.

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

[xii] The Nazis labeled these people ‘Useless Eaters,” people who TOOK FROM society but NOT RETURNED to society.  Thus, they were economic drains on the state and had to be eliminated which is what Governor Cuomo did by sending sick patients back into places where a vulnerable population depended upon competent care.  The Nazis used carbon monoxide vans, but Cuomo sent the sick into places where they would do the most damage.  HE MUST go to prison.

112. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2022

2021 Thursday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- a new report hit the news cycle today suggesting that Health and Human Services, an agency headed by Secretary Xavier Becerra, a man who never met an illegal alien he did not want to protect or a baby to abort, is paying travel expenses for (NAMBLA) and other groups to come pick up illegal alien brats and then take them elsewhere in the country. Shady foster care services are making BIG BUCKS right now caring for illegal alien minors.

  86. 2021 Thursday G: Earth Day Climate Communism News– Conservative commentators with the balls to call out Joe Biden point out that his so-called ‘climate summit’ is little more than a gift to the Chi-Coms who will agree to anything and then forge ahead with their plans.  Who can blame them?  Since it’s ‘Earth Day,’ Joe Biden rolls out sweeping new climate goals that are little more than open doorways for communism to consume both the country and the world.  Thanks, Joe.   Speaking of our drooling commander-in-chief, Climate Change protesters pushed pink wheelbarrows full of steer manure through the streets of Washington, D.C. and dumped them out in front of the White House.  They claim Old Joe is full of s**t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, it’s another Earth Day so it’s another opportunity for angry teenager Greta Thunberg to lambaste the world’s politicians once again.  Young lady, why don’t you row your boat to Beijing and tell comrade Xi Jinping how HE is responsible for f**king up the world?  You might find yourself vacationing in Xinjiang Province.   
  87. 2021 Thursday H: Joe Biden News I– In an interesting turn of events, Joe Biden is expected to call the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  This is going to drive the Turks berserk.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden is talking about raising the capital gains tax to 39.6-to-43.3-percent which collapsed the stock markets today (see Thursday 2021 D) and will kill all further business development and progress.  Thanks, Joe, thanks.  Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is set to speak with Guatemalan officials on Monday, seeking ways to ‘fix’ the ongoing illegal alien crisis.

VA, says he ‘won’t budge on the Senate filibuster.’  Next, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is going to visit Iowa on June 29, 2021, to help fellow GOP politicians in election bids.  Some believe this is testing the waters for a run in 2024, something with which, we don’t concur.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill that would make Washington, D.C., a state, something the U.S. Constitution expressly forbids.  It moves onto the U.S. Senate.
  89. 2021 Thursday J: Crime And Punishment News– Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a pair of bills into law today that protect motorists from ‘protesters.’  Not long after he did that, there was an INSURRECTION in the State House in which, a bunch of BLM supporters stormed the building and had to be tossed out on their butts by security.  Excellent.   Next, the POS Islamist from Syria[xviii], let in on the refugee program under President Barack Hussein Obama who shot up the King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, is being charged with having a high-capacity magazine.  Say it ain’t so!  Next, Columbus, Ohio, following the death of a 16-year-old Ma’ Khia Bryant was shot dead by a police officer yesterday as she was in the act of stabbing another young girl, protests and riots are occurring in the city, especially after troglodyte LeBron “Fecal Matter” James poured gasoline all over the fire yesterday with a threatening tweet against the officer involved in the action.  Look, when you are threatening someone with an 8-eight-inch blade and you are overheard saying, “I’M GOING TO STAB THE F**K OUT OF YOU, BITCH,” was the officer supposed to stand aside and watch the deed done?  Enough with this bulls**t.  Moving on, Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel program that SEXUAL ASSAULTS in New York City this past couple of months are UP by…get this…322-percent.  Gee whiz.  WTF is Mayor Bill “The Blank” Di Blasio doing to halt this horrendous sexual crime wave?  Nothing.  Finally, the POS Bangladeshi that tried to carry out a suicide bombing in the Times Square subway station received a life term in federal prison today.   
  90. 2021 Thursday K: Supreme Court News– On a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects limits imposed on life sentences for juveniles.  This led to Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor slamming her fellow justices- but Brett Kavanaugh in particular- noting that the newer justices are willing to overturn precedent extremely easy.   Speaking of liberals, Democrats are demanding (don’t they always) that Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from a donor privacy case.  C’mon, Dems NEVER recuse themselves from anything.   Speaking of the nation’s high court, GOP senators are speaking out against the Democratic Party’s twisted scheme of packing the court.[xix]
  91. 2021 Thursday L: Miscellaneous News– The Department of Homeland Security reveals yet another cybersecurity hack into U.S. systems, blaming the Russkies when everyone knows it’s the Chi-Coms doing the evil deeds.  Next, the U.S. Senate passes a bill making it a crime to practice Asian Hate.  Folks, the Dems must tell the BLACK DEMOCRATS to stop attacking the ASIAN DEMOCRATS.  Everyone knows what has been going on, black Americans assaulting Asian Americans and for what?  Did the Dems mobilize their shock troops to commit these heinous acts?  We think so.  Next, former aide to former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, Bridget Kelly, says the ‘big oaf is unfit to ever become president.’  He engineered ‘Bridgegate,’ and Ms. Kelly underwent two criminal trials, was facing prison until the Supreme Court tossed this bogus case.   Elsewhere, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, is scheduled to give the rebuttal to Joe Biden’s upcoming ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress. 
  92. 2021 Thursday M: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Late last night, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you know of whom we speak) carried out a suicide car-bombing outside a luxury hotel in Quetta, Pakistan.  The resulting explosion killed four and wounded at least 11.  Supposedly, the Chi-Com ambassador was on site, so no one knows for sure whether he was the target, or it was just another day at the office for the jihadists.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is putting forth a bill designed to crack down on People’s Republic of China infiltrating our institutions of higher learning.  Good.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, slams the enfeebled Joe Biden over his crackpot plans for rejoining with the Iranians in the deeply flawed JCPOA.   Moving on, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggests the U.S. could give eventual U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens willing to plant trees.  How about they plant them in YOUR country?).
  93. 2021 Thursday N: Foreign News / Overseas News II– A new report suggests that the Russians are suspected of launching directed energy attacks on U.S. military personnel.  Okay, uh, when claims of Vladimir Putin placing bounties atop the heads of U.S. soldiers led to demands that President Donald J. Trump go to war with the Russkies, how come the very same voices aren’t demanding that Joe Biden go to war?  Speaking of the Russians, it appears they have blinked and have pulled their forces back from the eastern border of Ukraine.  Wow.  Joe scared them.  In other ‘foreign news,’ a team of scientists are urging Congress to release more information on UFOs after one incident comes to light in which, a UFO going along at 120 miles per hour over Puerto Rico suddenly splits in two and heads off in different directions.  Folks, we have a problem on this planet.  What are we going to do about it?  (Note- this incident occurred back in 2013 so why are we just hearing about it now?)  Finally, at the upcoming meeting of House Republicans, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that President Donald J. Trump WON’T be addressing the group.

  99. 2022 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.110 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.685 in Washington state.[xxvii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Maryland- $4.047.  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 24th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Russia: $2.421 per U.S. Gallon.[xxviii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,402,029,192,644 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxix]  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 United Arab Emirates the next largest holder of U.S. debt is ALL OTHERS.  These nations holds $215,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  100. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Moscow now says that they are going to conquer all of eastern Ukraine as well as southern Ukraine so they can then focus on intimidating Moldova into submission.   Meanwhile, a new report informs the world that Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites fought off a Russian jamming attack over Ukraine the other day.   Satellite images are showing mass graves surrounding Mariupol in eastern Ukraine holding as many as 9,000 or more corpses.  Whether they are Ukrainian civilians or slain Russians is unclear; however, the defenders within the city continue to put up a defense which is driving the Russians and their mercenaries insane.
  101. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The families of the lost sailors who went down with the Moskva when it was sunk by Ukrainian forces last week are demanding answers from Vladimir Putin and his military regime.  They want to know WHY their sons and daughters went down with the ship in an unnecessary war.   Things are growing much more tense in Russia as the FSB is scooping up critics of the Russo-Ukrainian War such as opposition activist, Vladimir Kara-Murza Jr.  A criminal case has been opened against him and he could soon be staying with Alexei Navalny in the Siberian slammer.   Speculation abounds about Russian President Vladimir Putin as a recent series of photos shows him speaking with his defense minister. His right foot is tapping feverishly, he grips the table with one hand, his face, hands, and neck are bloated, and he looks worse than Adolf Hitler did in 1945.  Regarding Hitler, his personal doctor, Dr. Theodor Morell was injecting the Fuhrer with 75 different drugs per day including methamphetamine so what is Putin’s excuse?  The Joe Biden ‘disease,’ i.e., advance senility?
  102. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 385 days and it’s been 299 days since she arrived on scene to do her job.  What a tragedy.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is $713,581,700.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the two took their oaths to defend the Constitution of the United States and the American people is $42,459,387,443.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since the year began is a shocking 1,139,758.  Next, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is a shockingly low 46,571,415.  We suspect the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is a travesty no sane country can withstand. Next, a Texas National Guard member was swept away attempting to rescue struggling illegals drowning in the Rio Grande River.  The search continues for the unfortunate guardsman.  (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).
  103. 2022 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Bowing to pressure, Pope Francis calls off a meeting he had scheduled with a Russian patriarch due to the Russian being an ardent supporter of President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, another Russian, Olympic swimmer Evgeny Rylov has been given a nine-month suspension in international swimming events because the POS attended a pro-Vladimir Putin rally.  Next, Austria turns off the Russian oil spigot.  Meanwhile, the European Union is begging its citizens to voluntarily reduce energy usage so as to slash the dependence on Russian oil.
  104. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News II– British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is no slacker, and he says that ‘next week, the Brits will be reopening their embassy in Kyiv.’  Wow.  Where the hell is Joe Biden?  (Note- Joe is worried more about trannys and their rights than he is in promoting and defending the United States).   Elsewhere, after back-to-attack attacks on U.S. troops, diplomats from Iraq and Iran to meet. However, President Volodymyr Zelensky says the ‘U.S. most definitely will be reopening their embassy very soon.’  Next, after the Ukrainian postal service debuts a new anti-Russian postage stamp online, a cyberattack shuts them down.

  110. 2022 Friday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Gallup poll says that Joe Biden’s popularity rating is the second lowest in presidential history.  While we suggest that Barack Hussein Obama’s was worst, we know that President Richard M. Nixon rates the lowest.  In other devastating news to the so-called ‘Catholic president,’ Catholic League President William Anthony Donahue is slamming President Biden over his embrace of ‘transgender mania.’  Yikes, Joe.  How much worse can it get for you?
  111. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– Despite a growing rebellion among Democrats and red state governors going for broke to end the border invasion, the Biden regime says that it’s still going to end Title 42 on May 23, 2022,  whether they like it or they don’t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, struggling Joe Biden arrived on the West Coast today to do some fundraising and not to discuss defending our borders.  In Portland, Oregon, Joe Biden gave a rambling, stumbling speech to a tiny crowd and in his remarks, said that ‘Americans should stop feeling sorry for themselves’ regarding inflation and unaffordable prices.  Then in Seattle, he talked about climate change before ambling off into the hands of his handlers.  Where was the Easter bunny?  To cap things off, Joe grasped the lectern, leaned forward to the almost nonexistent crowd, begin whispering, then mumbling, and finally stuttering and stammering about how the GOP has become the MAGA party.  (Note- look for Joe to outlaw the Republican Party ahead of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections).
  112. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– In Washington, D.C., today, another busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in the nation’s capital.  Dump ‘em on the White House lawn.  They should not need ID there anymore than they need ID along the U.S.-Mexico border.   Next, after the BIG SCARE at the U.S. Capitol yesterday, the FAA says it failed to inform the Capitol Hill Police Department of the parachute jump into Washington Nationals Stadium.  As you recall, a parachutist caused mass panic at the Capitol.  Was it the return of the INSURRECTIONISTS?  Oh, God, say it ain’t so.
  113. 2022 Friday S: Political News I– Democrats do what Democrats do best: use the system to topple their foes.  Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, appeared in administrative court in Atlanta, Georgia, today where her Democrat opponents are trying to remove her from the primary ballot because (1) they hate her and (2) they know they can’t beat her.  He enemies are attempting to tie her to the false flag operation authorized by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Charged with no crime, the Dems still seek to remove her from the ballot.  Her attorney informed the hearing that all she did was to exercise her First Amendment rights.  The congresswoman says that all she was doing was asking people to come and to attend a peaceful march.
  114. 2022 Friday T: Political News II– Randi Weingarten- well-known socialist head of the American Federation of Teachers says that ‘parental rights laws in education are the way in which wars are started.’  Wow.  We suspect Ms. Weingarten may be going the way of Jimmy Hoffa soon.  Know when you’ve reached the apex of your career and then bow out gracefully; otherwise, you could end up in a landfill in the Garden State.
  115. 2022 Friday U: Political News III– In dire news for U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd district, Rep. “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney released audio from around January 06, 2022, in which, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ prompted Leader McCarthy to say that he was going to suggest to President Donald J. Trump that ‘IF impeached again, he should resign.’  This first came up yesterday and Rep. McCarthy denied ever saying it; however, today, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ Cheney got even with the California congressman by releasing the audio damning him as the anti-Trump RINO POS that he is.  Republicans in the Golden State’s 23rd district tell us they will be voting for Republican Jay Obernolte in June’s primary.  Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax that ‘McCarthy will probably have to go,’ that ‘Trump will most likely push him out,’ and that the ‘only way McCarthy could survive is that he looks better in comparison than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, RINO-KY.[xxx]
  116. 2022 Friday V: Political News IV– Former President Barack Hussein Obama once again has to add his two bits to the conversation.  He says that Meta-Facebook and Twitter are private companies and don’t have to practice freedom of speech.  Wow.  Next, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, shedding tears while speaking about the trauma she claims to have suffered on January 06, 2021- remember, she was in another building several blocks away from the Capitol- says, ‘this is no joke- they’re coming back.’  Well, this time we hope the ‘insurrectionists find YOU.’ Moving on, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st district, says that Twitter ‘must release data on Hunter Biden’s activities and his laptop.’
  117. 2022 Friday W: Political News V– Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st district, says, ‘it’s not right for the Dems trying to force fellow GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, off the primary ballot.  In other news, former ambassador to Germany and to the United Nations Ric Grenell says that ‘the Dems, Joe Biden, and ‘Merkelism’ in Germany’ set the war in Ukraine in motion.
  118. 2022 Friday X: Political News VI– Greg Kelly on Newsmax played an audio clip of former Governor John Kasich, RINO-OH, and former ‘2016 presidential primary candidate’ said on his radio show, Kasich and Klepper, that following losing the nomination to businessman Donald J. Trump, he broke down and started blubbering like the crybaby he is.
  119. 2022 Friday Y: Lawsuit and Legal News– The punk who started an altercation with heavyweight boxing champion “Iron Mike” Tyson on an airliner the other day has lawyered up while “Iron Mike’s” legal representatives say the putz was bothering him throughout the flight and then finally threw a water bottle at the famous fighter.  This led Mr. Tyson to turn around and punch the dimwit into early senility.  It’s a cut-and-dry case for Mr. Tyson.  Lock the punk up for instigating a fight he was never going to win.   Meanwhile, Tennessee has passed a new law that will force drunk drivers- guilty of killing a parent while driving while intoxicated- to pay support to the kids of the parents they kill.  This is absolutely amazing.  Good for you!
  120. 2022 Friday Z: Big Tech News– Netflix, reeling from a precipitous drop in stock value through the loss of hundreds of thousands of subscribers said today they will curtail spending in an effort to woo young people back to their crumbling site.  We suspect they will go the way of the ‘video store,’ relegated to the dustbin of history.  Meanwhile, Florida passed the law stripping Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges which led to a precipitous fall in their stock prices.  All Disney has to do is to just shut the hell up.  Be neutral and tell your employees to be neutral, too, while on the job.  Outside of work, if you want to prance around in pink tutus defending ‘transgender rights,’ go for it but stop with supporting the indoctrination of kids ages kindergarten to Third Grade.  Enough is flipping enough, already.  Now, your employer owes billions of dollars in taxes which means some of you are going to get the ax.
  121. 2022 Friday AA: Big Tech News II– New data shows that BIG TECH censored stories critical of Joe Biden 600-plus times over a two-year-cycle.  Why would anyone be surprised?  We know they did everything imaginable to cover up the truth of Hunter Biden’s laptop story which would have swayed the election for sure.  (We still believe that President Donald J. Trump won the 2020 Presidential Election by amazing numbers).
  122. 2022 Friday BB: New York State News– Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner resigned today following video of the arrest of an eight-year-old shoplifter.  Passersby attempted to interfere with the police officers and once again the media is in a stage of outrage screaming and yelling racism.  If a family member would discipline the brat at home, he would not be out shoplifting but no, they permit the kid to run amok and then when he’s caught, the media and their left-wing allies turn it into yet another reason for social unrest across the nation.  Put the kid in with the Cho-Mos.  He won’t shoplift again.
  123. 2022 Friday CC: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1757 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line: 07, 28, 29, 58, 59, and Mega 10.  Out of 51,626 winning tickets, the highest winners were 27 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $513 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next archival release Rick Danko’s record company put out is “Live at the Iron Hose, Northampton 1995 with Blondie Chapin and Ed Kaercher.”  This album came out on June 07, 2011, as have his other releases but unlike his ‘solo’ efforts, he has the phenomenal Blondie Chapin (guitars/vocals of Beach Boys fame among others) and Ed Kaercher (guitars, vocals) with which to give it a more electrified sound.  There are 20 tunes, many of which have been culled from the Band’s catalog and which are a joy to hear.  Sadly, they should have been able to have slipped in “Sail On Sailor,” one of the all-time great 1970s Beach Boys albums performed by Blondie Chapin.  We hope you will seek this one out as Danko- troubled star that he was- could deliver the musical goods with the emotional voice denoting fragility, yet strength at the same time.  Great music on a great album by one of the all-time greats- check it out now.  Enjoy.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell. We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions. We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Douamont.  Fighting is fierce and ongoing.   Elsewhere, heavy fighting between German colonial troops and their Askaris and a South African force erupts around the village of Kondona Irangi.  The Allies have had a hell of a time getting the Germans into a fixed fight and after the Kaiser’s troops inflict heavy losses on their opponents, they melt off into the terrain.
  20. 1917 Tuesday: A bill in Congress to establish Daylight Saving Time suffered a defeat; however, lawmakers managed to pass it a few months later.   Elsewhere, during World War I, British and Egyptian troops begin assaulting Ottoman Turk positions in and around Gaza.  The fight to liberate Palestine from the Turks is underway.

  27. 1944 Monday: The Red Army continues driving Axis troops out of the western Ukraine.  One offensive after another prevents the German, Hungarian, Rumanian, and other allied Axis troops from being able to catch their breath and make a stand.  This is not good for the Axis, but they will continue fighting until the bitter end.

  33. 1961 Monday: Some 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba with which to topple communist thug dictator, Fidel Castro- or so the plan went- on this date.  However, President John F. Kennedy’s plan went awry from the start as Castro’s forces crushed the incursion by the third day.  The CIA was going to provide the freedom fighters with air cover but then President Kennedy and his brother, U.S. Attorney General Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy got cold feet and left them to their demise.

  45. 2003 Thursday: U.S. forces get lucky in Iraq as they scoop up one of deposed dictator Saddam Hussein’s half-brothers, Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, the leader of Iraq’s intelligence-gathering agency, the Mukhabarat.  Off he goes to a black site. 
  46. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 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.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  65. 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: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Happy Easter to my Christian friends, colleagues, and neighbors.  For my Jewish friends, neighbors, family members, and coworkers, Happy Passover.  Let us hope the world finds peace, especially at this joyous season.


[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group, but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

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

[v] 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.

[vi] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] 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.

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

349. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2021

62. 2020 Tuesday B: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden gives a speech this morning marred by his wandering mind, repeated coughing fits, and distractions from God knows where causing him to be incoherent and lost. This is OUR NEXT PRESIDENT? We now know the Chi-Coms are running the show.

  18. 1942 Tuesday: As the fight to relieve the Sixth Army trapped in Stalingrad continues, the 6th Panzer Division is battling its way to Mishkova but is finding the area alive with Soviet troops and armored units.  Still, superior German force of arms, tank artillery’s greater targeting ranges, and superior skills, the Germans are destroying numerous tanks, trucks, artillery pieces, and infantrymen.

  58. 2018 Saturday: President Donald Trump said Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke would be leaving the administration at year’s end; Zinke was facing federal investigations into his travel, political activity, and potential conflicts of interest.  Fearing that the incoming administration of Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro could restrict homosexual marriage, about 40 gay couples exchanged wedding vows in downtown Sao Paulo.        
  59. 2019 Sunday: Top Republicans in the House and Senate are coordinating with the bogus impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump upcoming in the U.S. Senate.  The Democrats are trying to remove the president over a phone call between him and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier in the year in which, the President asked his counterpart to continue investigations into fraudulent activities on the part of the Biden Family.  Democrats are attempting to bully various GOP senators into recusing themselves from the trial.  What a load of crap.[x]   
  60. 2020 Tuesday: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, congratulates ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and Kamala Harris on becoming the official ‘president-and-vice-president elect.’  Next, former President Barack Hussein Obama chides President Donald J. Trump on the ‘birther conspiracy.’  Meanwhile, not content with Chi-Com Joe’s victory, Hillary Rodham Clinton calls for an end to the Electoral College.   Elsewhere, Republican Congressman Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey rejects push by dimwitted Democratic Congressman Brad Pascrell’s drive NOT to seat House Republicans who supported the Texas lawsuit against election fraud.   Regarding Democrats, a Pennsylvania sheriff says, ‘goodbye to the socialist Dems and hello to the GOP.’  Sheriff James Custer of Fayette County mentions that socialism and draconian lockdowns regarding the Beijing Bat Virus drove him to it.  Good for you.
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: House Minority Whip Steve Scalise, R-LA, blasts the SILENCE surrounding California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell’s lengthy affair with a Chi-Com honeypot spy, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang.  No one seems to want to address the real espionage scandal in their midst.  Could it be because MOST Democrats in House and Senate receive financial support from the Chi-Coms?   Meanwhile, a bi-partisan group of lawmakers, aka the Gang of Eight, are growing increasingly angrier with House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who won’t pass any COVID-19 relief bill, not just the one they hammered out.  No one is clear as to WHY Madam Speaker is being so obstinate, but most believe she is waiting for Trump to leave office.  Democrats: strip this senile old bi**h of the speakership.  Do it for the nation.
  62. 2020 Tuesday B: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden gives a speech this morning marred by his wandering mind, repeated coughing fits, and distractions from God knows where causing him to be incoherent and lost.  This is OUR NEXT PRESIDENT?  We now know the Chi-Coms are running the show.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence is visiting his home state of Indiana so he can visit a production plant making the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  As we speak, thousands of Americans are receiving the vaccine to ward off the Chi-Com Yellow Fever.  Speaking of the Pelosi Pox, we now learn that HYDROXYCHLOROQUINE IS A-OKAY FOR USE IN TREATING THE CHINA VIRUS.  Everyone knew this but dimwits such as Neil Cavuto went ballistic when President Trump admitted to using the medication to ward off the Bat Bug from Wuhan, China.  Wow.   Regarding the Kung Flu, Catholic schools across the country have remained open and have continued instructing their students while government-controlled schools have kept their doors closed.
  63. 2020 Tuesday C: We now learn that the Department of Homeland Security has also been hacked by Russian agents as we learned other agencies were yesterday.   Speaking of foreign thugs, we learn that a record number of journalists around the globe are either in prison or are dead.   Meanwhile, erstwhile Jeffrey Epstein girlfriend and procurer of young girls, Ghislaine Maxwell, proposes a bail package of $28.5 million so she can get the hell out of jail while awaiting trial.  She continues maintaining her innocence.   Elsewhere, bigshot Larry Ellison is the next wealthy person to tell California to ‘kiss my grits’ as he relocates to Hawaii.
  64. 2020 Tuesday D: The Xi Jinping Bat Flu is not dampening First Lady Melania Trump’s holiday visits to children’s hospitals.  She will maintain this especially important tradition until the end of her husband’s first term.  Meanwhile, talk show host Glenn Beck says President Donald J. Trump is ‘one of a kind’ and that he ‘definitely took one for the team.’   He sure has.   Speaking of Yellow Fever 2020, President Trump signs an executive order on increasing economic and geographic mobility for American workers during the pandemic.  Meanwhile, Jeff Rosen becomes acting U.S. Attorney-General following Bill Barr’s resignation.   Speaking of the Department of Justice, the United Auto Workers- UAW- vows to tackle corruption (yeah, right) among its top officials following the deal it made with the DOJ.  Elsewhere, the Federal Reserve Bank weighs different options to help the U.S. economy as the Chi-Vi continues causing problems across the country.  Finally, an NHK-World Japan poll says that due to the China virus running amok, approximately one-third of the nation would like to see the postponed Summer Olympics next year canceled.
  65. 2020 Tuesday E: The Amistad Project says the bombshell Antrim County audit of Dominion Voting Systems corrupt machines and subsequent interrogation of voting personnel and whatever Dominion executives they can get their hands on could very well swing the outcomes of the votes in the battleground states.    Elsewhere, we learn today that little Mayor Pete Buttigieg will become ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s U.S. Secretary of Transportation.  Question: what does this closet queen know about ‘transportation?’  Where the heck is Julian Castro?  Meanwhile, Minnesota’s Pardons Board is considering freeing a young black gentleman convicted in 2002 of killing a child via a stray bullet.  Myron Burrell was convicted of the death when he was a teenager and sentenced to life imprisonment even though evidence was faulty and his trial far from fair.  We hope he gets a new opportunity in life. 
  66. 2020 Tuesday F: Now that every illegal alien in Central America believes that President Donald J. Trump is on the way out, the U.S. Border Patrol announces that it is making approximately 2,300 arrests per day and that 70,000 illegals from Latin America tried to cross the border in November.  We hope the Trump administration continues erecting as much wall as possible to stem the tide but IF ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden enters the White House, the country will be submerged by a tidal wave of illegal aliens.  Would the Chi-Coms put up with this s**t?  NO!
  67. 2020 Tuesday G: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 72,221,634 confirmed cases, UP by 571,758 cases, 1,612,014 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,498 deaths, and 47,218,235 confirmed recoveries, UP by 406,451 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 16,648,159 confirmed cases, UP by 115,405 new cases, 303,482 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,341 new deaths, and 7,784,483 confirmed recoveries, UP by 306,455 new recoveries.
  68. 2020 Tuesday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,625,892 confirmed cases, 21,219 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 19,512 confirmed cases, 274 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 212,488 confirmed cases, 3,084 confirmed deaths, but like California, the apelike governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Texas: 1,337,096 confirmed number of cases, 23,937  confirmed number of deaths, and 1,185,627 confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 359,506 confirmed cases, 3,004 confirmed deaths, and 338,418 confirmed recoveries.
  69. 2020 Tuesday I: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,199.31, UP 337.76 points (+1.13%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,595.06, UP 155.02 points (+1.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,694.62, UP 47.13 points (+1.29%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.30 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $24.61 per troy ounce, -0.034 (-0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,042.90 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $3.54 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.13%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,324.00 per troy oz., +5.10 (+0.22%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $47.50 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.25%).  Today, COCOA is $2,589.90 per metric ton, +48.00 (+1.89).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.54 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.82 euros.  Meanwhile, the Trump administration is auctioning off oil and natural gas drilling rights in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.  This, of course, has the liberal environmentalists wetting their panties!   Look, we now know- according to Elon Musk- that there is NOT enough electricity production in the world to fuel all the electric vehicles environmentalists plan to force down our throats.  Let’s get them nuke plants up and running, shall we?  Interesting note: the CEO of Dominion Voting Systems claims his company is ‘the victim of a disinformation campaign.’  Those f**king Russians!
  70. 2020 Tuesday J: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, secure in the fact that he has another six years ahead of him in the upper chamber, ‘urged’ his fellow GOP senators NOT to support any GOP efforts in the House to contest the election when it arrives in the U.S. Senate in early January.  Mitch- if this is how it’s going to be- then we may as well NOT continue funneling money into the Senate races in Georgia.  You, sir, are a piece of festering s**t and you’ve always been a piece of festering ‘shit.’  We might as well undergo a Götterdämmerung moment and watch the country experience an overthrow by socialists.  It it’s going to happen, it’s going to happen and you sir, should not be the leader of anything.   YOU must fight for Trump.   Meanwhile, a Rasmussen poll says a majority of Americans believe that the media buried the Hunter Biden laptop story.  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, says, “Joe Biden has a lot of explaining to do about son, Hunter.”   Speaking of national security threats, outgoing Rep. Peter King, R-NY, says, “Eric Swalwell must be removed from the House Intelligence Committee” as the guy is an alleged agent of the Chi-Coms.
  71. 2020 Tuesday K: A McLaughlin poll reports that a majority of Americans believe that voter fraud is a national problem and must be addressed and soon.  Meanwhile, U.S. Census estimates the American population could be as high as 336 million people.  When you add the 30-to-75 million illegal aliens living in the shadows of the country, we have a BIG problem.  Not enough to go around- especially for illegal aliens which means we must deport them ASAP as well as finish constructing the Trump Border Wall.
  72. 2020 Tuesday L: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1616 with a $291 million jackpot up for the grab: 01, 10, 18, 20, 46, and Mega 15.  Out of 99,480 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had four numbers PLUS the Mega for a prize of $25,790. 
  73. 2020 Tuesday M: The state of Arizona orders a forensic audit of the Dominion Voting Systems machines and the software used to steal the 2020 Presidential Election from President Donald J. Trump and flip it to ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  The report must be in by this Friday.  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi orders everyone on the floor of the House chamber to wear masks even while speaking and anyone who fails to follow her orders will lose speaking privileges and other harsh punishments.  Wow.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate will hold hearings on the stolen election and the fraud that went into it tomorrow in the Senate Homeland Security Committee.  Various witnesses will testify.  Finally, reports show that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell received CAMPAIGN DONATIONS FROM DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS AND OTHER ELECTION MACHINE VENDORS.  Say it ain’t so, Senator McConnell, but it sure as hell would explain a lot as to why you are going against Trump now.
  74. 2020 Tuesday N:  This was where we were one year ago today: Stick around and discover with us- your esteemed hosts- what the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, the Canadians, and their dimwitted stooges in the Democratic Party are up to today- you will be glad you did…
  75. 2021 Wednesday: Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album, “Mock Tudor,” on September 10, 1999.  Once again, the legendary guitarist delivered the goods which music critics consider to be among his best works yet did not fare well in the stores.  Grunge was exploding all over the place and it was difficult for old-timers to remain current yet in our eyes, Mr. Thompson is ALWAYS current no matter what anyone else thinks.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist/vocalist are (1) Michael Froom (keyboards); (2) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion); (3) Atom Ellis (bass); (4) Danny Thompson (guitars); and numerous others including a horn section.  For some, Thompson is an acquired taste and for loads of others, he’s always a joy to behold.  We hope you will investigate this one to your hearts’- and ears’- content.  We think you will be glad you did.

Tuesday, December 15, 2020, 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 are not sure as to when we are going to promote the music of the legendary Dave Clark Five, but we expect to do so at the same time we do Paul Revere and the Raiders, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap, and the amazing Box Tops.  Stick around for the day when we do…

[ii] We promoted the music of HP Lovecraft beginning on Friday, 07-June-2013 through Monday, 10-June-2013.  We hope you will seek the music of this wild acid rock band out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] We promoted the music of Vanilla Fudge beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  We hope you will seek this band out and add their music to your growing collection.

[iv] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

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

[vi] We hope to present the music of the Clash sometime before we wrap up our presentation of British rock bands so, please remain vigilant for the day we do.

[vii] We have not yet discussed when Fairport Convention and Richard Thompson will appear.  We sure as heck hope they do soon.

[viii] They ain’t normal either.  Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, and Democratic presidential candidate in 2019 compares being gay with being black.  This, of course, set off all manner of outrage as it should.

[ix] In boxing, RTD means a corner retirement in between rounds.  Grady Daniels was unable to answer the bell for the next round.

[x] A year later, we would learn that the entire impeachment trial was all a sham.  We would learn PRIOR to the 2020 Elections that Hunter Biden, the bagman for his father, uncle, and for other family members, was doing drugs, receiving vast amounts of cash from the Chi-Coms, the Ukrainians, and other sundry and shadowy globalist players.  We would learn, too, that collusion and conspiracy with foreign powers exists, alive and well in the Democratic Party as lowlife, scum-sucking Democratic Congressmen like Eric Swalwell of California is actually sleeping with a Chinese female intelligence agent for close to 4.5-5 years and only recently broke off Facebook and other social media contact with the Chi-Com ‘Red Sparrow.’  What is it about the Democrats that makes them so f**king corrupt?  Lack of God, we think, lack of God…

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!

246. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 03, 2021

III. 2020 Thursday A: California state Senator Scott Wiener sends SB 145 legislation to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his signature. The bill will give judges ‘discretion’ in sentencing pedophiles and will lower penalties for child rape provided the difference in age between the so-called ‘willing child’ and the rapist is 10 years of less. Hence, a 20-year-old sexual deviate can rape a 10-year-old child either anally or orally by claiming the youngster was a ‘willing participant’ in his rape.

Trump is blitzing Pennsylvania while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is in Kenosha, Wisconsin, pandering to the family of Jacob Blake.  Polls show Biden has ‘commanding leads’ in battleground states such as Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Arizona.  Elsewhere, Antioch, California, Mayor Sean Wright blasts Contra Costa County District Attorney Diane Beckton that before she will prosecute looters, she will first make the determination as to whether they NEEDED the items they stole.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is beginning the process of slashing federal funding to four largely Democratic Party-held cities- Seattle, Portland, Oregon, New York City, and Washington D.C. until they reestablish and enforce law and order.  In response to this, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo tells POTUS ‘YOU CAN’T COME TO NEW YORK- OR ELSE.’ Finally, Facebook announces it will ban all political ads one week out from the November elections in the hope it can prevent Russian disinformation from swaying voters to vote ‘correctly,’ meaning for “Gropin’ Joe” Biden and not for President Donald J. Trump.
  61. 2020 Thursday A: California state Senator Scott Wiener sends SB 145 legislation to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his signature.  The bill will give judges ‘discretion’ in sentencing pedophiles and will lower penalties for child rape provided the difference in age between the so-called ‘willing child’ and the rapist is 10 years of less.  Hence, a 20-year-old sexual deviate can rape a 10-year-old child either anally or orally by claiming the youngster was a ‘willing participant’ in his rape.  Someone somewhere, do something to Senator Wiener- within the scope of the law.  California is indeed Sodom and Gomorrah. God, wipe out the state!
  62. 2020 Thursday B: Speaker Pelosi continues screeching that she ‘was framed’ for Hairgate, promising to get even with those who ‘set her up’ and was able to intimidate the hairdresser who gave her and wash and blowout into saying that ‘yes, she was setup.’  What is clear here is that Speaker Pelosi knows she is in the wrong because she canceled her weekly press conference today as she fears having to answer questions about this scandalous behavior.  
  63. 2020 Thursday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 26,074,609 confirmed cases, +239,308, 864,153, confirmed deaths, +5,492, and 17,337,374 confirmed recoveries, +215,182.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,220,061 confirmed cases, up 21,013 from yesterday’s reporting, 188,854 confirmed deaths, UP 530, and 3,288,521 confirmed recoveries, UP 9,189.  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: 723,821 confirmed cases, 13,338 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 8,981 confirmed cases, 75 confirmed deaths, and 2,689 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 78,734 confirmed cases, 2,026 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Delaware- currently, they have 17,653 confirmed cases, 606 confirmed deaths, and 9,514 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor John Carney for your state’s honesty in this regard.
  64. 2020 Thursday D: After yesterday’s BIG GAINS, we had a BIG SELL-OFF today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,292.73, DOWN 807.77 points (-2.78%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,458.10, DOWN 598.34 points (-4.96%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,455.06, DOWN 125.78 points (-3.51%).  Price of GOLD: $1,939.10 per troy oz., +1.30 (+0.07%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.80 per troy oz., -0.07 (-0.26%).  Price of PLATINUM: $890.30 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.08%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,304.00 per troy oz., +3.00 (+0.13%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.98 per #, +0.0015 (+0.05%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.26, -0.11 (-0.27%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.84 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  65. 2021 Friday: Friends, the government says via a recent white paper that if an American citizen questions the efficacy of wearing masks or the results of the 2020 Presidential and National Elections, that person can and most likely will be considered a TERRORIST.  If that is the case, then so be it but I will tell our friends in the government this: there are far more of us than there are of YOU.  You would be wise to remember that.  Also, the moment the Joestapo shows up, demand a lawyer.  Period.  God bless America!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Over the course of Jethro Tull’s lengthy lifespan, Jethro Tull has delivered loads of performances, most of which have ended up in bootleg form over the decades.  Today, we have “Live in Stockholm 1969,” (June 04, 2018), that presents one famed live show for the fans.  The band features  Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jeffrey Hammond (bass and keyboards), John Evan (keyboards), and Clive Bunker (drums).  If you want to hear the band during its rise to popularity riding this is a good album with which to do it.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

NO one should ever vote for another Democrat candidate until they regain their sanity and return to what made them a great party: fighting for the little guy and gal and not for a hodgepodge of lunatic ideas
