  57. 2006 Saturday: A massive earthquake slams Java in Indonesia, killing at least 6,600 people and wounding countless others as well as leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.  Elsewhere, the gay pride folks once again take to the streets of Moscow, trying to get that country to enter into the 21st century but it goes awry as usual.  Mayor Yuri Luzhkov announced that ‘homosexuality is unnatural’ and banned the long-anticipated gay rights parade.  This led to the police taking to the streets, beating, and arresting people- including members of the European Parliament.  Russia does not want this and the more you push it the more violent the outcome is going to be.  Maybe things will be better next year.
  58. 2007 Sunday: Some places you can get away with stuff and in others you cannot: after the Moscow mayor- Yuri Luzhkov- just like last year banned a gay pride event and parade in his city, apparently the participants failed to get the message, Moscow police go out and beat up Russian gay rights activists and foreign dignitaries who came to celebrate a change in Russia (or so they thought).  (Note- there aren’t going to be any changes in Russia anytime soon).
  59. 2008 Tuesday: Problems are going on between the Argentine government and grain farmers.  The problems are over the prices the farmers get when they sell their grain for export and since there is no answer to this problem, the farmers announce all sales will HALT between May 28 and June 2.  Let us hope there is an end to this crisis.
  60. 2009 Wednesday: In Lahore, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ carry out another suicide bombing that delivers 35 True Believers up to Allah sooner than any of them had planned and injures at least 250 other poor souls.  WTF!   Meanwhile, in an extremely curious move, Russia agrees to supply U.S. civilian nuclear reactors with $1 billion worth of uranium.
  61. 2010 Thursday: The Israeli government calls the ambassadors of several nations- Sweden, Cyprus, Ireland, Greece, and Turkey- on the carpet for launching a flotilla of ‘aid’ to the Gaza Strip, a territory the Israelis have kept under blockade for the past three years due to their terrorist operations against their country.  These countries compiled a ‘fleet’ of eight ships- four of which were cargo ships carrying ‘supplies’ to the Palestinians as well as a ferry trundling down the coast from Turkey carrying 600 people.  The Israelis don’t deserve this crap.  It is a clash of civilizations- Israel representing civilization and the Palestinians representing barbarism.
  62. 2011 Friday: Prime Minister David Cameron confirms that the United Kingdom is sending Apache attack helicopters to help the Libyan rebels in their attempt to overthrow Dictator Moammar Gaddafi.  Meanwhile- California Burning: a massive wildfire in the surrounding hills above Lake Isabella, Kern County, forces residents to flee via the three available avenues out of the area.  The California drought has depleted the massive reservoir.
  63. 2012 Sunday: Following some controversial remarks, Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, suffers accusations of “insulting the Greek people.”   Elsewhere, Vladimir Putin’s hired thugs disguised as ‘protesters’ take to the streets in Tbilisi, Georgia, demanding the ouster of the duly-elected government of Mikhail Saakashvili.    
  64. 2013 Monday: Scientists in Canada bring 400-year-old bryophyte specimens left behind by retreating glaciers during the Ice Age back to life.  Elsewhere, the European Union decided to lift an arms embargo on the Syrian opposition while maintaining all other sanctions against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator John McCain, R-Arizona, a proponent of arming Syrian rebels (without knowing who the f**k they are), quietly slipped into Syria for a meeting with anti-government forces.       
  65. 2014 Tuesday: President Barack Obama plans to keep 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan through the end of 2015 and then reduce this number over the following two years to a small force; the troops will train Afghan forces and conduct counterterrorism operations.  However, while giving a press conference at Baghram Air Base in Afghanistan, the White House, i.e., President Obama, ‘accidentally leaks’ the name of the top CIA intelligence officer in that country and even worse, he does it before 6,000 assembled journalists.  WTF, President O?  When ‘Scooter’ Libby ‘accidentally’ spilled the name of Valerie Plame, he went to federal prison.
  66. 2015 Wednesday: According to Brainy History, the federal government approves commercial space company SpaceX as a contractor to the U.S. military for satellite launches; SpaceX will compete for contracts against the Boeing-Lockheed Martin United Launch Alliance, currently the primary military launch provider.  Elsewhere, former Senator Rick Santorum, RINO-PA, announces he will be running for 2016 presidential nomination of the Republican Party.  Uh, okay. 
  67. 2016 Friday: Longtime bassist with the soul-funk-rock band, The Ohio Players[iii]—Marshall “Rock” Jones—died on this date in Houston, Texas; he was 75 years-old.  Elsewhere, Iranian morality police scoop up at least 30 college students who had the chutzpah to attend a co-ed graduation party.  The penalty for their crimes?  Ninety-nine lashes.  Wow.  Can’t have the sexes mingling now, can we?  Barbarism folks, plain, simple barbarism.
  68. 2017 Saturday: Gregg Allman, famed lead singer of the Macon, Ga., rock band, the Allman Brothers[iv], died at his home in Richmond Hill, Georgia, on this date due to the ill effects of liver disease.  Elsewhere, at Taormina, Italy, the 43rd G7 summit sputters to an end as every leader save for President Donald J. Trump votes to uphold the NON-BINDING Paris Climate Accord.  Of course, the BBC and American liberals began wailing about ‘climate change denial’ when in truth, there is NO evidence that it exists or does not exist.  The planet is in a constant state of flux and anyone who says otherwise simply does not accept the PROVEN science.  Climate change for former committed communists is the easiest way to force totalitarianism upon an unsuspecting population.
  69. 2018 Sunday: Problems continue erupting across Brazil as workers at the state-owned petroleum company- Petrobras- join the ongoing teamsters strike.  Elsewhere, the Israelis announce they will be building a ‘unique deterrent’ to Palestinians boarding ships and sneaking into Israel by sailing around land barriers and landing on their beaches.  The new obstacles will be three stories high and will be constructed of stone and defensive fencing which will prevent jihadists crossing from Gaza getting into Israel and causing problems.  Destroy the vermin.   (Note- the U.S. requires something like this on the Mexican border by San Diego, California).
  70. 2019 Monday: A new global study that investigated 711 rivers around the world finds that many of them are polluted with antibiotics and other medicines either flushed down the toilet or tossed into them for disposal.  Elsewhere, Reuters reports a horrifying story that in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, prison officials in several different jails discovered the corpses of at least 42 inmates strangled to death.  This followed on the heels of yesterday’s deaths of 15 gangbanging thugs in the state capital’s prison.  The violence appears to be spreading like a cancer.
  71. 2020 Wednesday: Sadly, America’s first attempt in nine years at putting astronauts back into space is scrubbed due to electrical storms raging in parts of Florida.  Saturday is the next date.  Astronauts Bob Bacon and Doug Hurley were aboard the Falcon 9 rocket provided by Space X.  Waiting aboard the Dragon Crew Capsule for their 19-hour trip to the International Space Station for over an hour, the duo learned the flight was postponed due to safety reasons.  We will be there Saturday.
  72. 2020 Wednesday A: The Chinese-created COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Virus continues causing problems and some scientists now say the virus is engineered ‘perfectly’ in that it can morph into variations that a normal virus could not.  Thank you, communist China, but the AICPENDBLOG.COM believed from the beginning that the Wuhan Flu’s appearance was too ‘coincidental’ to show up shortly after the communist Chinese lower-level signatories to the U.S.-China Trade Deal.  That is not right.  Here are the statistics for today for the world: 5,651,806 confirmed cases, 353,246 confirmed deaths, and 2,325,989 confirmed recoveries. 
  73. 2020 Wednesday B: In the United States, we have 1,730,136 confirmed cases, 101,356 confirmed deaths, and 369,460 confirmed recoveries.  It is important to note that recoveries would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics with the disease.  To us, this demonstrates evidence of the COLLUSION between communist China and the Democratic Party, something that must be investigated if the American people are ever to learn the truth.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the statistics, California first: 98,980 confirmed cases, 3,884 confirmed deaths, BUT ZERO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which confirms for us that Governor Gavin Newsom is doing nothing but playing politics.  In Hawaii, here are the numbers: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the socialist non-paradise of Washington state, here are the stats: 20,181 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  (It is interesting to note that Chef Vladimir says that prior to mail-in ballots in the state became the norm, the state was a reliable RED in every election as it will be again when people return to voting in the normal way).
  74. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 169,616,816 confirmed cases, +537,668, 3,524,509 confirmed deaths, +11,643 and 151,459,161 confirmed recoveries, +65,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,999,680 confirmed cases, UP 24,393 from yesterday’s reporting, 607,726 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[v] and 27,701,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,832.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]  
  75. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 289,779 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 169,830 deaths  
  76. 2021 Thursday 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: 3,786,604 confirmed cases, 63,161 confirmed deaths, and 2,024,029 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,318,480 confirmed cases, 36,733 confirmed deaths, and 1,939,437 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,032 confirmed cases, 498 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 436,124 confirmed cases, 5,814 confirmed deaths, and 212,224 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Michigan: they have 990,638 confirmed cases, 20,301 confirmed deaths, and 791,206 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  77. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,420 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,599 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Finland, a former ally of Nazi Germany during World War II: 92,062 cases of the virus, 946 confirmed deaths and 46,000 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  78. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,464.64, UP 141.59 points (+0.41%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,736.28, DOWN 1.72 points (-0.013%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,200.88, UP 4.89 points (+0.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $67.13 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.30 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.86 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,180.60 per troy oz, +1.50 (+0.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.66 per pound, 0.00 (-0.05%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,808.10 per troy oz, +2.96 (+0.11%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $22,750.00 per troy oz., -50.00 (-0.22%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.     In Botswana Pula, one greenback equals 10.58 and in Brazilian Real, a buck equals 5.24 and in Brunei Dollar, one dollar equals 1.32 of theirs.[xii]   In other business news, Bayer’s stocks take a tumble as a federal judge refuses to toss the ongoing lawsuit against Roundup which is under their umbrella of products.   
  79. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.175 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.927 in Hawaii, and $3.565 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Alaska: $3.320.  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- Belarus: $2.928 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,337,169,021,764 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  Regarding gasoline prices, economists believe that higher gas prices won’t affect travel on Memorial Day.
  80. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the so-called ‘border czar’ now for 66 days and NO one has seen her anywhere near the U.S.-Mexican border.  Speaking of the border disaster, One America News shared some updated statistics on just how dreadful things are at the border.  The costs of caring for the massive number of illegal aliens to the American people today is $584,855,552.  Next, the total cost of caring for these frigging illegal aliens for calendar year 2021 is $160,584,892,416.  The number of known illegals to have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border this year is 1,645,866 while the total number of illegals lurking within the shadows of the United States is 35,645,864.   (Note- we have long said the total number of illegals in the U.S. is between 35-50 million.  It would appear that One America News is backing us up on this number).  
  81. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The New York Times is praising Democrats’ silence on the disastrous mess along the southern border.  Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers were denied access to a DEA facility near El Paso, Texas, by the goons doing the bidding of the Biden regime.  Elsewhere, Rep. Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says, ‘states are playing shell games with illegal alien payments given them by the feds.’   Next, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says the border problem is not helped by ‘Facebook running ads for Mexican cartels.’
  82. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– News reports claim a Russian naval intelligence ship is sailing in the waters just off the coast of Hawaii.  Nothing to see here, folks.  (Yeah, right).  Next, in Iran, the third time in a week a chemical plant housing a nuclear reactor blew up killing one person outright and wounding another two.  Who would do such a dastardly thing, or did it happen because the Iranians are morons?  We await the final word on this event.   Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘external forces are seeking to damage the U.S.-Colombia relationship.’  (Note- most likely those forces are next door in Venezuela).  Moving on, Hong Kong might throw away loads of Chi-Vi vaccines citing citizens’ mistrust in both the former British crown colony’s and mainland China’s governments as well as the ongoing swirling misinformation about both the vaccines and the disease.[xvi]  Finally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad won a historic fourth term as dictator, uh, president, in a landslide election.  Wow.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Speaking of COVID, Dr. Marty Makary says that ‘half of non-vaccinated Americans are immune to COVID-19’ and that ‘health officials relied more on government mandates than on the science.’  Meanwhile, while Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci continues obfuscating, sputtering, and stammering about his friends, the Chi-Coms’ responsibility in infecting the entire world, Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says, ‘it’s laughable’ for Dr. Fauci to ‘plead ignorance’ over what his pals at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were up to in the lab.  Elsewhere, we learn from a recent study that people who have had mild COVID-19 infections can gain lifelong immunity.  (Note- speaking of ‘Phony Tony,’ he says the vaccine will be available for young kids by the end of 2021; we ain’t giving it to our kids when 99.98-percent of young kids survive the crap).
  84. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  In a Newark, New Jersey, federal courtroom, 26-year-old letter carrier Nicolas Beauchene pleaded guilty to one count of ‘desertion of mail.’  The punk admitted to destroying 99 2020 Election ballots as well as another 2,000 pieces of mail.  And bit by bit by bit, the dominoes continue falling.  We will see a change in the outcome of the 2020 Elections.  Count on it.  (Note- in other curious news regarding the U.S. Postal Service, we continue hearing more and more that the USPS is spying on the social media of the American people under order from the Joe Biden regime.  WTF?)
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been leading infrastructure talks with Congress and not flipping ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Yet another sign the senile old fool is not calling the shots.   Next, former 71st U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence “Larry” Summers, Democrat, says that Joe Biden’s stimulus plan will lead to rising inflation, inflation current Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, seems to be encouraging via increased government spending.  In other regime news, Joe Biden lifts ALL sanctions on the Russkies so they can now proceed with the construction of the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea to Germany- and they called Donald J. Trump a ‘Russian stooge!’  Joe Biden is a stooge of the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and even the rat-eating Iranians.  This scumbag must be evicted from office NOW.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II– Speaking of being a stooge of the Chi-Coms, Joe Biden is pushing a flipping $6 trillion federal budget for the next fiscal year.  All this money will come from the Chi-Coms.  Next, according to sources, the Biden regime is denying help to U.S. diplomats dealing with the so-called ‘Havana syndrome,’ the one in which microwaves of unknown origin are harming our overseas diplomats which is indeed an act of war upon the United States.  Meanwhile, the regime has not even looked at page 1 of the GOP $928 billion infrastructure offer, one Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says the GOP is willing to increase.  Finally, the regime dismisses the GOP’s plan for distribution of COVID-19 relief funds.  What’s up with the Biden regime.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden Regime News III– The lying POS Joe Biden has trotted up to Capitol Hill to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives- the ATF- David Chipman is being blasted by Republicans over his whacked-out stance on guns, gun control, and his whacked out ideas of arresting legal owners of AR-15 rifles while saying nothing about Hunter Biden[xvii] lying on his FBI background check and whether he would issue an arrest warrant for the scumbag should be become the next ATF director.  In other news favorable to the regime, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, introduces a bill to treble the budget of the Internal Revenue Service.   Music to the Bidenistas’ ears.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Well-known conservative commentator Todd Starnes shared a story about Hillsdale High School valedictorian Elizabeth Turner who was told by principal Amy Goldsmith she could not mention or reference to God Who is extremely important in her life.  After lawyers entered the fray, the courts overruled the principal, and her speech can continue as written at the graduation ceremonies.   Next, Facebook says it will NO longer censor posts pointing the finger at the Chi-Coms for making this pandemic in the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s laboratory.
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Political News I– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, is on the way out because the state’s largest labor union- the SEIU- has abandoned him to his fate and is calling for him to go.  NOW.  Next, after repeated death threats against Mike Lindell of My Pillow, a court rules that the manufacturer’s address can be kept secret while the Dominion Voting Systems’ fraudulent lawsuit against him continues.  They are claiming their product is as clean as the wind-driven snow.  (Note- everyone knows that Dominion is a corrupt, evil company that sells election outcomes to the highest bidder.  IF their home country of Canada won’t use their products, what does that say about the honesty of the company or its products?  Answer: NOT MUCH).
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Political News II– Today, we learned three Democratic members of Congress- Steve “Bucket O’ Fried Chicken” Cohen, DS-TN 9th congressional district, Barbara “Blacktivist” Lee, DS-CA 13th congressional district, and Bobby “Black Panther” Rush, DS-IL 1st congressional district, hosted a tete a tete in which former Black Panther convicted murderers were featured guests.  This event occurred on May 10, 2021.  Next, Los Angeles Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti is going to be the next U.S. ambassador to India which is good because he would never win re-election.  Speaking of ambassadorships, failed Senator Claire McCaskill, DS-MO, who lost in a landslide to now-Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a couple of election cycles ago also stands in line for an ambassadorship somewhere in Europe.  Hmmm, maybe Albania?  Finally, California continues hemorrhaging population as people continue fleeing for better environs.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News III– Lily Batchelder- Joe Biden’s nominee to be Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy under Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen so far is flying under the radar in her confirmation hearings- so says Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax TV.  She believes that Americans must be taxed on FUTURE INCOME and that taxation should vary via (1) race (2) gender (3) education (4) age (5) education and IQ (6) zip code and (7) behavioral profile.  This woman should NOT be confirmed.  Period.  In other political news, President Donald J. Trump says he plans to run a third time in 2024- provided he remains in good health.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he and personal attorney- and ‘America’s Mayor’- Rudy Giuliani have asked a judge to toss the Capitol Hill Riots 01-06-2021 lawsuit dimwitted Democrats launched against them.  We concur.  Toss it.   The 45th president also said of his administration compared to the Biden regime, the ‘U.S. was energy independent whereas now- it’s not- thanks to Biden’s policies.’  Finally, famed Democratic strategist James Carville said of his own party that there’s too much ‘arrogance’ and ‘urban smugness’ running the show.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Political News IV– Former Obama era employee Christine Wormuth received unanimous confirmation in the U.S. Senate to become the first female U.S. Secretary of the Army.  Congratulations.  Elsewhere, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, offered an amendment to a bill being debated that would forbid ‘gain of function’ experiments by medical scientists seeking to amplify the effects of already-dangerous viruses.  He received unanimous consent for his amendment.  Excellent.
  93. 2021 Thursday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Protesters going against a Washington abortion clinic have been granted more access in which to protest the Pro-Death Movement by a judge.  Meanwhile, down in Texas, the Lone Star State’s Senate has passed a so-called ‘trigger bill’ that will kick in IF Roe v. Wade is overturned.  Should it kick in, it will criminalize all abortion providers with lengthy prison sentences for the murder and dismemberment of the unborn.  Excellent.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: Miscellaneous News I– Clay Travis and Buck Sexton will be taking over Rush Limbaugh’s time slot.   Next, the Oscars will once again allow films on streaming services to compete for honors.  Meanwhile, the International Olympic Committee disputes a recent report that says that ‘even if Japan refuses to host the Olympics due to the Chi-Vi, the Olympics will STILL go on.’  Who will hold them?  Oildale, California?  Finally, last evening three Texas cops were shot during a 10-hour SWAT standoff.  The officers will recover, and the POS shooter is in custody.  
  95. 2022 Friday: Stick around and discover the news of the day along with all of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys is an interesting albeit an odd one.  “Stack-o-Tracks” came out on August 19, 1968 and did something NO other band of which we know and revere at the time as it was ALL INSTRUMENTAL and came with the music sheets and lyrics among other things.  Thus, we have all the BACKING TRACKS to 15 of their earlier and biggest tunes all in one place.  If you can find this oddity, seek it out as it would make for a glorious Karaoke night at the neighborhood watering hole.  Great stuff by a much-beloved band.  Seek it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Trump meets with Pope Francis at Vatican City on this date.  Elsewhere, that knuckle-dragging cretin, former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan testifies before the House Intelligence Committee saying he ‘knows of people who say there was contact between the Trump campaign and the damned Russians.’  Wow.  Big bulls**t, there Mr. ‘Former’ Communist.
  66. 2018 Wednesday: Following several years of upheaval, the NFL arrives at an agreement regarding its players and the playing of the National Anthem: if players are going to be on the field during the anthem, they are to stand.  Otherwise, get your FA off the field and into the locker rooms.  Enough with disrespect of both the nation and your fans!  Thank you, President Donald J. Trump.
  67. 2019 Thursday: Under Operation Blackwrist, law enforcement authorities working with Interpol rescue 50 children imprisoned by a Dark Net pedophile ring.  The children were saved in Thailand, Australia, and the U.S. with the main perp eventually receiving a sentence of 146 years.  Meanwhile, in the United States, deaths of illegal alien kids at the border in U.S. custody now stand at six over the course of eight months.  Of course, incensed Democrats rail at President Trump although when the same thing happened during the Obama regime, you didn’t hear a peep.    Illegal alien parents: please don’t send your brats to El Norte.  Gracias.
  68. 2020 Saturday: More information continues coming to light about how the communist Chinese have been working on bat viruses for the past 15-20 years.  The question is WHY?  Some say it’s because of SARS which caused numerous deaths when it broke out a decade or so ago while others believe- us, too- that it is for biowarfare research.  Well, it appears that COVID-19 did manage to jailbreak the Wuhan Institute of Virology and away we go.  Now dictator for life Xi Jinping says he welcomes a W.H.O.-led investigation into the origin of the Wuhan Virus when it ends.  When it ends?  And the W.H.O.?  The World Health Organization does the bidding of Xi Jinping so why would anyone believe anything it or the communists in Beijing say?  Here are today’s stats, first for the globe: 5,288,392 confirmed cases, 340,875 confirmed deaths, and 2,102,557 confirmed recoveries the last of which gives us hope as the number of recoveries far outweighs deaths.
  69. 2020 Saturday A: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the United States: 1,656,906 confirmed cases, 97,414 confirmed deaths, and 334,452 confirmed recoveries.  Now, we head to the breakdown of the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, California first: 90,631 confirmed cases, 3,708 confirmed deaths, but as usual, ZERO confirmed recoveries because Gov. Gavin Newsom continues playing politics.  He and his regime believe that IF they continue NOT publishing the number of recoveries, Californians will be afraid but next week when we begin seeing temperatures soar to over 100 degrees, people are going to disobey all governmental orders and edicts.  We won’t forget WHO is destroying the economy and It’s NOT President Donald J. Trump.  No, it’s Democrat governors.  Here are the stats for Hawaii: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 579 confirmed recoveries.  Here at the statistics for Washington state: 19,265 confirmed cases, 1,050 confirmed deaths, and ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Come on, Gov. Jay Inslee, release the true stats, you worthless POS.
  70. 2020 Saturday B: Our contacts in Hong Kong continue scoffing at the numbers put out by the communists in Beijing.  Communist China claims 82,974 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,261 confirmed recoveries while Hong Kong claims 1,066 confirmed cases, 4 confirmed deaths, and 1,029 confirmed recoveries.  Our sources claim the numbers for communist China are more like 780,000 confirmed cases, 400,000-plus deaths, and about 1,700,000 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you for the info, please stay safe, Hong Kong!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan!  Free Tibet!  Free Mainland China!  Time to return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as the legitimate government of the mainland and the People’s Republic of China as a usurper government.  We must bring Taiwan back to the United Nations and restore their seat on the U.N. Security Council as it was before the communist takeover.  
  71. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 167,505,190 confirmed cases, +467,189, 3,477,723  confirmed deaths, +9,401 and 148,580,554 confirmed recoveries, +56,391.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,896,035 confirmed cases, UP 13,286 from yesterday’s reporting, 604,082 confirmed deaths, UP 223,[iv] and 27,501,610 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,368.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[v]   
  72. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 287,475 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 172,134 deaths

  76. 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 $4.161 per gallon, $2.874 in Florida, $3.907 in Hawaii, and $3.563 in Washington state.[xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Guam: $4.345.  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- Uzbekistan: $2.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,321,440,516,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  77. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– today is Day 62 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris in this job and guess what- she has yet to visit the southern border to do the job. 
  78. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Outrage is growing over Belarus forcing down Ryanair Flight 4978 over its territory to seize a critic of thug ruler Alexander Lukashenko, journalist Raman Pratasevich.  The flight was coming from Athens, Greece, on the way to Vilnius, Lithuania, and as it traversed Belarusian airspace, fighter jets came alongside the aircraft while ground control warned the pilots of a bomb aboard the craft.  The flight then was directed to land at Minsk where the authorities went aboard and arrested Mr. Pratasevich.  Of course, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and other world leaders- including NATO!- condemned the Lukashenko government for this criminal act.  Question- who will do anything about it?  (Note- any members of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day will be careful as to where we fly so as to avoid any kind of illegal rendition threats).
  79. 2021 Sunday H: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– The “Amazing” Dr. Tony Fauci has made it into the running for the 2021 Award that will be awarded in January 2022.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is on the list because he is little more than a hired gun political hack who will babble whatever those funding his lunacy tell him to say.  Who can remember ‘masks were not necessary,’ then ‘masks were,’ then ‘maybe googles, too,’ then ‘maybe no goggles,’ then ‘perhaps two masks,’ then ‘perhaps three masks,’ as well as ‘schools should reopen’ and yet they are not open?  Yup.  He has earned his place in the running this year- Chef Pedro.
  80. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Oh, the gift that continues giving- thank you, communist China, thank you.  According to reports, India which is suffering some massive numbers of the Wuhan Flu also is seeing a dreadful additional effect, the so-called ‘black fungus,’ which in medical parlance is mucormycosis that centers around the eyes, nose, and mouth and can cause death in about half the cases reporting it.  According to the Indian government, they have close to 9,000 cases of this diabolical accompaniment of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  And you question as to whether this evil disease was created in a Chi-Com lab funded by the devious Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.
  81. 2022 Monday: As you know, we await the news of the day…stick around and discover the truth…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys were at a crossroads as far as which direction to go.  Fun at the beach was being replaced with mind trips via smoking the ganja and dropping the big LSD.  Like everyone else, the Beach Boys were expanding their consciousness via the weed and psychedelics and the album composer Brian Wilson was working on- “Smile”- was too far out for the rest of the group and so they released a subpar one entitled, “Smiley Smile” on September 16, 1967.  Although the album was no “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” (Beatles), “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request” (Rolling Stones), “Face to Face” by the Kinks, or “Ogden’s Nut-Gone Flake” (Small Faces), it produced one of the all-time greatest hits of the era: “Good Vibrations” and a lesser one, albeit a live staple, “Heroes and Villains.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and percussion), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  We love this album and understand that 55 years on, it’s still a glorious album to be sure.  We hope everyone will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we believe you will be joyous that you did.

110. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2022

When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately. Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico. The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals. What a day that will be.

  70. 2017 Thursday: In Paris, a police van transporting criminals along the Champs Elysees suffers an attack by jihadists killing police officer and injuring two others.   Elsewhere, Australia beefs up its qualifications for one to become a citizen in their country by amending laws to demand stricter knowledge of the English language as well as a desire to become Australian and not remain some foreign-born piece of pond scum.  Wouldn’t it be great if the United States would do this?

  75. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 248,829 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, a new study suggests that the ‘VID can affect the lungs via the gums.  Elsewhere, the European Union announces it will restart receiving shipments of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine despite reports of RARE BLOOD CLOTS afflicting some recipients of the vaccine.
  76. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,720,794 confirmed cases, 61,006 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,178,783 confirmed cases, 34,533 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,779 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 388,842 confirmed cases, 5,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kansas, the home of the conservative Midwest: they have 308,518 confirmed cases, 5,005 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]

  79. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.974 per gallon, $2.818 in Florida, $3.749 in Hawaii, and $3.385 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.611.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,193,749,804,750 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  In other business news, Netflix fails to meet paid subscriber predictions which leads to a subsequent fall in its shares.
  80. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News– Stammering Joe Biden says he ‘hopes the jury in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin reaches the right verdict.’   Next, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob “The Jerk” Frey says, “No matter the verdict, George Floyd died at the hands of the police.”  (Note- the police are under HIS control).   We were wrong: Judge Peter A. Cahill reads the verdicts and Officer Derek Chauvin is convicted on ALL charges.  Officer Chauvin stands to face 40 years in the slammer although esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz believes that Maxine “Prune Face” Waters did enough to cause a mistrial (see below).  In an interesting aside, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, gave a schizophrenic statement thanking ‘George Floyd for dying, for calling out to his mother on camera’ so the Dems could utilize his untimely demise to benefit the ongoing attempt to transform our country into a socialist s**t-hole.
  81. 2021 Tuesday G: Social Media And Big Tech– The United Kingdom is considering launching their own digital currency, the so-called “Britcoin.”  Next, Facebook is developing new audio products, products with which we suspect they will listen in on their users’ conversations.  Elsewhere, Apple is going to permit Parler to be offered in its App Store.  Big flipping deal.  Speaking of Apple, they are going to reveal new products today in a virtual store.
  82. 2021 Tuesday H: RINO News– Not to be outdone by former House Speaker John “Too Much Flipping Tanning Booth” Boehner, former President George W. Bush has to chime in and add his two cents on the modern GOP.  He says the Republican Party is ‘isolationist, protectionist, and nativist,’ lamenting the fact that he failed to get ‘comprehensive immigration reform taken care of when HE was president.’  Sadly, Republicans knew what he and the RINO wing of the GOP meant when they talked about ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ meant amnesty for millions with a pathway to citizenship for all.’  We did not want that then, George, and we don’t want it now and if you want to make sure the Bush Family name remains toxic, continue talking, George.  Voting for another Bush would mean legalizing the illegal and another justice like the loser chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts.   IF Jeb were to run again, yikes, NO MORE BUSHES!
  83. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic-Socialist News– A new poll says that a large majority of the American people are concerned with the fact that Joe Biden appears to be a slobbering idiot much of the time.  We are concerned, too.   Speaking of Joe Biden, a Missouri college student is suing the Biden administration allowing trannys, i.e., chicks with dicks, into female-only college dorms.   Next, Michigan’s GOP announced they had discovered that Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer AND her staff took a secret vacation to Florida while demanding everyone else remain indoors wearing 4-5 masks.   Elsewhere, a new poll demonstrates that white liberals typically have far more mental problems than do everyone else.  We agree with that study.  Meanwhile, as criticism continues rolling in blasting Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, she dismisses it as ‘nothing’ even though she did the same thing that supposedly got President Donald J. Trump impeached a second time.   (Interesting note- “Prune Face” Waters sought a police escort when she landed in Minneapolis to the protest scene so she could stir the pot without having to fear for her safety.  Wow).  Speaking of “Prune Face,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pushing a bill to censure the decrepit old rabble rouser and to remove her from her committee assignments.  Go for it.  (Note- the Democrats blocked this move).
  84. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump says he is considering a run for the White House in 2024.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘Joe Biden turned his back on the people of his state by going after coalminers when 43-percent of the world’s energy is derived from coal.’  This is true, the United States is the ‘Saudi Arabia of coal’ what with the best here such as anthracite and bituminous coal beneath our feet.   Moving on, Senator Marsha Blackburn says that asking for Voter ID is NOT racist.  We agree.  One needs ID for everything else including welfare checks, liquor, and pot purchases, picking up tickets, buying cigarettes, boarding airplanes- unless one is an illegal alien- you name it, you must show ID so WTF?[xvi] 
  85. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Officials in Indiana reveal that laws regarding firearms in their state would have done NOTHING to have stopped the mass shooting at the FedEx facility a week or so ago.  Next, in Arizona, students can now attend school in person and without having to wear face masks.  However, when the state’s mask mandate ends in May, Oregon is considering passing a law that will require faces masks on everyone forever.  That is correct- FOREVER.  Crazy flipping left-wing socialists.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to reinstate the travel ban that protected the nation so well from the Chi-Vi pandemic.   Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, Ohio GOP lawmakers want to rename a state park for the 45th president.   Speaking of befuddled old Joe Biden, he backs a bill to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state.  People, just return the land to Maryland.  Enough!
  86. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News III– The U.S. ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, is coming home for consultations after Joe Biden continues slandering Vladimir Putin.  Speaking of Mr. Putin and Russia, the word from Moscow is ‘IF Joe Biden wants a summit with Mr. Putin, it will depend on U.S. actions.’   Elsewhere, in Florida, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signs a bill that will allow the state to tax $1 billion in online purchases.   Next, North Carolina won’t pass a bill banning youth tranny procedures.  NOT right.  Wait until you’re 18 and then if you wish to destroy your body, it’s ON YOU.   Meanwhile, Willie Nelson is encouraging Joe Biden to make the ‘pot holiday’ an official one.   Finally, like Gary Gilmore in Utah back in 1977, a death row inmate in Nevada, Zane Michael Floyd, wants the option of being executed via firing squad.   Finally, Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti, NOT TO BE OUTDONE BY FELLOW LEFTISTS, is proposing a universal basic income (that ONLY minorities will receive).
  87. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News IV– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that “WOKE” companies will feel a backlash in the aftermath of Major League Baseball withdrawing the All-Star Game and MLB Draft from the Peach State.  Meanwhile, a recent poll says that less than one-third of Americans are aware of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Joe Biden-Russia-Chi-Com connection.
  88. 2021 Tuesday N: Foreign News / Overseas News– Chi-Com President Xi Jinping gives a thinly veiled warning to Joe Biden not to pursue a path of unilateralism.  Meanwhile, General Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, says that ‘pulling out of Afghanistan will make the War on Terror that much more difficult to prosecute.’   Elsewhere, Bill Gates and loads of world leaders will attend the ‘Biden climate summit.’  This should be fun to watch.  Next, Russia’s defense minister says, ‘U.S. actions in the Black Sea are becoming increasingly provocative.’  We would advise Joe Biden not to send U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea as whatever senile old Joe sends would NOT be able to withstand a concerted Russian attack nor might Turkey allow the vessels to pass back through the Dardanelles to the Mediterranean.  It could be a real cluster-f**k.  Finally, Admiral Charles Richard, head of U.S. Strategic Command, issues a dire warning to the administration: the Chi-Coms and the Russians are modernizing their nuclear forces much faster than anything the United States is doing.  Sadly, WOKE issues for the Democrats are much more important than defending the nation.[xvii]
  89. 2021 Tuesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1652 with a $257 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 06, 23, 43, 49, 52, and Mega 05.  Out of 166,921 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,806,354.  The winning ticket was sold at the Richmond New May Wah Supermarket in San Francisco, CA 94118.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 567,674 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 202,919 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 455 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  96. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– It’s Day No. 56 in the Russo-Ukrainian War with no end in sight.  Germany says that by the end of the year, there will be no more oil coming into their country from Russia nor will there be any natural gas shortly after that.  They must know that President Donald J. Trump is returning soon, and that oil and natural gas will be flowing from the United States once again.
  97. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our glorious Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 383 days.  Worse, she has not shown up to do the job in 297 days.  By our count, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris regime’s illegal aliens since January 01, 2022, is $700,740,760.  Next, since the duo took their oaths to defend the country and its Constitution, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders is $42,446,546,503.  Since the first day of the year, we contend 1,119,308 illegal alien invaders have arrived in the country while the conservative low estimate of illegals believed to be in the country is 46,550,965.  We believe the truer number is between 85-to-125 million illegals which is an intolerable amount.  Good news: the 7th bus of illegals arrived in the nation’s capital today.  Dump ‘em out on the White House lawn.  Put them to work. (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 Wednesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new poll of U.S. military veterans says the majority of them believe that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark A. Milley is BAD for morale.  Speaking of someone else BAD for the nation’s morale, Joe Biden sees only 26-percent approval among Hispanic voters.  This is not good for the regime.   Next, Joe Biden- well, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain or perhaps the Easter bunny- is demoting Acting ATF Director Marvin Richardson and bringing in U.S. Attorney Gary Restaino from Arizona to run the ship while his new nominee, former Ohio U.S. Attorney Steve Dettlebach tries to make it through confirmation in the U.S. Senate.
  104. 2022 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News II– In yet another sell-out by the Biden regime, the Bidenistas are canceling nuclear sea-launched cruise missile known as the SLCM-N, and the B83 gravity nuclear bombs designed.  It would appear that the administration is doing what Joe Biden and the Democrats always accused President Donald J. Trump- the legitimate president- of doing, being a stooge for the Russians.  Joe Biden and the Democrats surrounding him are the TRUE stooges of not just the Russians but of the Chi-Coms.   Twenty-fifth Amendment anyone?
  105. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News III– Supposedly, ‘Joe Biden’ held a confab with his top military generals today as events in Ukraine continue going from bad to worse.  Eastern European leaders however are journeying to Kyiv to walk the streets with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.   However, U.S. cybersecurity agencies and foreign allies are warning of massive Russian cyberattacks coming our way.  Oh, perish the thought.
  106. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News IV– The Centers for Disease Control have asked the Biden regime to ask the Department of Justice to appeal the federal judge’s slap-down of mask mandates on air travel.  Dutifully, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that he is going to contest the ruling, spending millions of taxpayer dollars with which to overturn an extremely popular ruling with the American people.  They just keep striking out on one issue after another that could help Democrats win in the fall.
  107. 2022 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th district, says that the Centers for Disease Control NEVER provided reasons for keeping masks on air travel.   Next, a new poll says that President Donald J. Trump holds an insurmountable lead over his closest possible Republican contenders in 2024 and a massive-massive-massive lead over losers such as Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, and U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell who would never run anyway.  His time in GOP politics is coming to an end within his next election cycle.  He’s going the way of Di-Fi.
  108. 2022 Wednesday R: Political News II- The Senate Majority PAC- a Democrat fund-raising monster- is rolling out a massive ad blitz to support crumbling Senator Tammy Baldwin, DS-WI, who is among many at risk of losing their seats in November.  The Democrats are rolling out massive ad campaigns across the fruited plain with which- or so they hope- to maintain some hope of holding a majority.  They stand better chance of dumping illegals in all 50 states and giving them the right to vote with 30-day residency which is why the GOP must go out NOW and begin recruiting the illegals to register GOP.  NOW.
  109. 2022 Wednesday S: U.S. Military News– In Ohio, the first ever Courts Martial of a U.S. Air Force Major General William Cooley is underway as jury selection commences.  The general is accused of forcibly groping and kissing a subordinate.  At least it’s not for refusing to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.
  110. 2022 Wednesday T: Big Tech News– Big Tech strikes again: Google takes down Hong Kong leadership contender John Lee’s YouTube account.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis- fresh from leading his state forward in the battle to force Disney to return to being at least, a neutral company, and at best, the American company that it once was is going after yet another WOKE target: Twitter.  The Sunshine State is threatening Twitter’s board of directors with a lawsuit over its rejection of Elon Musk’s buyout offer.  How can they do this, you ask?  Well, not considering an offer that would enrich ALL shareholders is a rejection of their fiduciary obligation to their shareholders and for this, the worthless company can be sued in court.   It is interesting to note that Governor DeSantis holds Twitter stock.  Not good for Twitter.
  111. 2022 Wednesday U: Big Tech News II– Another Big Tech icon sputtering into the wastebin of history like video shops is Netflix.  Having lost more than 200,000-plus users in recent months, shares of the online ‘video shop’ have fallen 23-percent.  Once Netflix went all WOKE, they, too, lost their allure, paying the Obamas hundreds of millions of dollars for some of the crappiest ‘entertainment’ on the Net.  How sad.  Meanwhile, it appears that CNN+ is doomed to circle the crapper, too.  Don’t these flipping liberals ever learn the hard lessons?  The American people are middle-right and don’t want all this WOKE CRAP.
  112. 2022 Wednesday V: Popular Culture News– Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania, by an 8-1 vote shot down an attempt by some sick f**ks to establish an afterschool Satan club.  These evil clubs operate in four other places around the country, opening a door to things better left alone by enticing young people that it’s all just, good clean fun.  Bullshit.  You know, you can tell when a culture is in its decline.  Here is how: (1) constant political strife bordering or leading to civil war.  (2) open borders and an inability to do what’s necessary to stop barbarians from flowing across it- namely, use of force to stop the invasion.  (3) loss of common culture, language, belief in God (4) embracing all things perverse such as homosexuality, perversion, chicks with dicks, mentally ill believing they are something they are biologically incapable of being (5) the acceptance of dark ‘religious faiths’ such as satanism, abortion on demand, the eradication of the sick, the infirm, the mentally challenged (6) the corruption, i.e., the sexualization of children, minors, and sexual abuse (7) rampant crime, especially violent crime, loss of law and order, abrogation of government’s duty to protect its citizenry from thugs and criminals (8) constant wars for no apparent reason, the worrying of foreign events over domestic events, the worrying about noncitizens over citizens, i.e., the replacement theory, which is indeed FACT, NOT THEORY.  Each of these things is bad enough but combined together and it’s the End of Times.  We have a leader who should be in the old folks’ home, and we are well on our way to the end of the line for the United States.
  113. 2022 Wednesday W: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3657 what with a $35 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 29, 36, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 111,308 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,284 apiece.   One ticket was sold at Bob’s Liquors in Redding, CA 96002 while the other was sold at Neighbors’ Market and Spirits in Galt, CA 95632.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #978 with a jackpot of $370 million up for grabs: 20, 30, 45, 55, 56, and Power 14.  Out of 94,565 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,235 apiece.

[i] We look forward to presenting the music of Grand Funk Railroad sometime in the late 2020s.

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

[iii] 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.

[iv] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] At some point in the distant future, we hope to do the music of the famed rocker, Prince.  Be sure to remain aware for the day that we do.

[xvi] When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately.  Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico.   The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals.  What a day that will be.

[xvii] We have predicted since ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election that it would not surprise any of us if the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the North Koreans, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, the Cubans, and all the Third World countries in the orbit of Beijing were to act in concert against the U.S. and her interests.  What better opportunity would they have?  Unless President Donald Trump reenters the White House, we are sitting ducks.

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

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

Trump says the “U.S. dollar is getting too strong” which is why he seeks to keep interest rates low.  In other news, liberals are going berserk after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the “Nazis never used poison gas.”  This is in response to Syrian chemical weapons attacks on jihadist rebels.  What he meant is that the Nazis did NOT use poison gas on the battlefield.  Yes, they used it in the concentration camps but did not use it on the battlefield as both the Central Powers and the Allies did during World War I.  Sheesh.  Elsewhere, Japan says it will join in U.S.-South Korean military exercises as North Korea is causing lots of problems right now.

  72. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 136,315,604 confirmed cases, +599,097, 2,940,833  confirmed deaths, +8,641, and 77,593,298 confirmed recoveries, +388,688.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,442,604 confirmed cases, UP 94,373 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,894 confirmed deaths, UP 752, and 119,004,328 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  73. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: SINCE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 240,090 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.   Dr. Scott Gottlieb takes the ‘Biden administration’ to task for NOT surging vaccines and resources into coronavirus hotspots but to continue doling vaccines out based on population numbers. 
  74. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,701,555 confirmed cases, 60,434 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,125,846 confirmed cases, 34,056 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,045 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 378,052 confirmed cases, 5,373 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kentucky, the home of “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and his Chi-Com wife, Elaine Chao: they have 436,434 confirmed cases, 6,350 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii]

  78. 2021 Monday F: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS– The state of Arizona is suing the ‘Biden administration’ over its flawed border policies.  They are suing the corrupt regime on environmental grounds as the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens pouring across the southern frontier are leaving heaps of garbage, fecal matter, urine, discarded clothing, condoms, beverage containers, food wrappers, and all sorts of other garbage that is destroying the pristine environment along the Arizona-Mexico border.  Next, President Joe Biden taps two openly hostile critics of President Donald J. Trump to lead key agencies.  First, he picks Tucson, Arizona’s chief of police, Chris Magnus to lead Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Ur Jaddou to head U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  Both of these POS will push open borders policies.  Speaking of open borders, today is Day 19 that Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris has failed to hold a press conference so she can share her ideas for fixing the southern border crisis.   
  79. 2021 Monday G: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS II– The first family’s dog, Major, is scheduled to get another round of training for all the people he has bitten since entering the White House.  What more proof does one need that the dog is a prop for a feeble old coot like President Joe Biden?  Next, as the White House continues trying to convince the American people that another $2 trillion bill- this one, the INFRASTRUCTURE FIASCO BILL[xv]– is somehow good for them, Biden’s henchmen are going to target the home states of GOP leaders for a concerted push.  (Note- Joe, we don’t want this POS bill.  What you are going to do is that borrowing money from our enemies- that’s right- I flipping said it- the Chinese- you are going to allow them to become de facto owners of U.S. businesses and landlords of the American people.  Chef Kilgore).   Meanwhile, we learn today that RINO wife of the late Senator John S. McCain- Cindy- could get an ambassadorship to the United Nations Food Program.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!  Big flipping deal.   Finally, President Joe Biden is going to nominate former Pentagon employee Christine Wormuth to become the U.S. Army secretary.  If she gets the gig, she will become the first woman to hold this position.  YOU couldn’t find a tranny for secretary of the Army, Joe?
  80. 2021 Monday H: POLITICAL NEWS I– Fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, is peeved today at her Chief Operating Officer Tricia Foster basically told her boss to ‘go f**k herself’ by taking her family to Florida to vacation during spring break and then possessing the chutzpah to post photos of her vacation to online social media sites.  According to Herr Whitmer, NO one in Michigan government is to disobey her by going to the EVIL, COVID-19-infested Florida.  Oh, well.  We predict Governor Whitmer is going to face a Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu moment when the citizens of her state drag that Frankenstein-headed b***h (the only thing she’s missing are the bolts in her neck) and her family out and liquidate them.   This is the fate of ALL dictators.[xvi]  In other news, former DNI John Ratcliffe says that ‘Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian connections and his laptop are NOT Russian disinformation.’ 
  81. 2021 Monday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEA NEWS– the Iranians are running around jabbering and swearing over the recent BLACKOUT that befell their main nuclear facility in Natanz.  Israel, if YOU are going to f**k with these scumbags, how about setting a chain reaction off within the program so the entire country blows the hell up?  Now, that would be something we would all love to see.  Meanwhile, the ‘Biden administration’ is negotiating with Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (Trump already did this) to obtain their help in stopping the tidal wave of illegal aliens flooding from the three Central American countries through Mexico and into the U.S.  We believe we should militarize the southern border and throw back every wave of illegals invading our country.
  82. 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– After a traffic stop goes awry in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, people are criticizing the moron judge in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd because with all the problems that have occurred in the area as well as across the country because he did not sequester the jury in this case.   Next, New York State continues to forge ahead with its incredibly STUPID plan of giving checks as high as $15,600 apiece to illegal aliens who may have been affected by the ‘VID when U.S. citizens have lost homes, businesses, and many of them are living out on the streets.  Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the “Gropin’ Gov” must go now.  In other news, Victor Davis Hanson says that ‘all organizations and institutions have all gone WOKE.’ 
  83. 2021 Monday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– President Donald J. Trump says it is imperative that the GOP reclaims both the House and Senate in 2022.   Elsewhere, following the accidental shooting death of a young black man in Minnesota last night, three counties are placed under curfew and the National Guard is now patrolling the streets.  Police in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota (see previous), said that the female officer who shot 20-year-old Duante Wright thought she was drawing her taser as he sought to flee and instead shot him.   In other curious news, the U.S. is warning the People’s Republic of China NOT to make a move on Taiwan.  We shall see.  Russia in the Ukraine, Iran flexing its muscles, and North Korea going mum, no one knows what the heck is going to happen.  Finally, as the volcano continues erupting on St. Vincent, ferries are taking people away from the island BUT ONLY if they have vaccinations for the Chi-Vi.  We guess loads of people are going to die.  WTF?
  84. 2021 Monday L: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– Taiwan reports that the Chinese flew 25 warplanes into their airspace earlier today.  Unlike the time when Chinese leader Hu Jintao was reaching out to Taiwan’s leadership, it’s clear that Xi Jinping is pulling a full-on Adolf Hitler, trying to intimidate neighboring countries around the borders of the People’s Republic of Chi-Com Land or actively trying to subvert them so as to force them into the fold.   Taiwan’s air defenses locked onto the PRC warplanes while tracker planes flew along with them.  War is coming, folks, war is coming, and we have, uh, President Joe Biden?  WTF!

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 563,722 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 199,057 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 447 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  90. 2022 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.748 per gallon, $4.056 in Florida, $5.239 in Hawaii, and $4.669 in Washington state.[xxiv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Delaware- $3.945.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 14th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Bahrain: $2.008 per U.S. Gallon.[xxv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,380,403,104,848 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Germany the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda.  This nation holds $73,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  91. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- The ongoing war in Ukraine is raising the specter of global famine as Russia is among the biggest producers of fertilizers across the world.  Atop this conundrum, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the West in general and the U.S. in particular that ‘Russia cannot be isolated nor held back from pursuing its goals.’  Putin’s goals are evil: the mayor of Bucha reported that at least 400 bodies of Ukrainian civilians have been recovered from where Russian forces massacred them.  The Russians claim they massacred no one but the Russkies never change.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken- and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky- say they cannot confirm claims that Russia used chemical weapons on civilians in Mariupol.  However, former Republican presidential candidate Jim Gilmore says that the ‘U.S. may have to provide chemical weapons to Ukraine.’
  92. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 375 days.  She has not arrived on scene to do the job in, uh, 289 days.  Yet, she still receives a paycheck.  Wow.  By our account, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens since the beginning of January 2022 is in our estimate, $649,272,590 while the cost of caring for the illegals since President Joseph R. Biden and Vice President Harris held up their right hands with their left hands on the Bible and took the oath to preserve and to defend the country, we estimate the cost of caring for the illegal alien invasion army at $42,395,348,333.  Imagine what that money could do for the American people?  Since January 01, 2022, we estimate that 1,036,752 illegals have arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border and that the conservative estimate of illegal aliens living in our country as you read this at 46,428,238.  We contend that there are between 85-to-125 million illegal aliens in the country, which is a horrendous number, something that seems to be on purpose to topple the U.S.  Time for patriots of all backgrounds to defend the country.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  93. 2022 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Taiwan is reading the tea leaves and recognizes that as Russian efforts in Ukraine continue to sour, a second front is about to open up thus Taipei is putting out a pre-invasion handbook with which to prepare their people for the inevitable.  We suspect that Beijing is weighing the consequences if they lose capital warships in the Straits of Taiwan.  Will they continue building armaments for future plans or will they roll the dice as Vladimir Putin has?  In other news related to China, Warner Bros. is taking loads of heat from WOKE Americans over censoring Dumbledore as gay at the request of Beijing.
  94. 2022 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- In yet another blow to Democrat dreams and hopes, a new Axios-Ipsos poll says that less than 10-percent of American voters believe that COVID-19 is a severe problem in the country at present.  Give the Dems time and by October, the country will be beset by another wave of COVID-19, possibly the Frankenstein variant,[xxvii] mentioned a week ago in England and then instantly sent into the shadows.  This could become a two-year cycle every election year where new strains of COVID-19 come out with just enough time to cause problems for elections.
  95. 2022 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $53.11 (2) AstraZeneca: $68.61 (3) Novavax: $58.10 (4) Merck & Company: $85.63 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.90  (6) BioNTech: $169.13 (7) Moderna: $159.50.

  100. 2022 Tuesday O: Political News I- Governor Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a bill prohibiting abortion in the state.  In other news, Republicans are calling out U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm over her sneaking components of the Green New Deal into ‘law’ by making them regulations that are not passed by lawmakers thus, it is difficult to overturn or to remove them. Still, when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, for every new regulation passed, two had to be removed.  Boy, those were the good old days.
  101. 2022 Tuesday P: Political News II- Democrats continue enduring self-inflicted problems via their electing crooks and scumbags.  Federal agents scooped up Empire State Lt. Governor Brian Benjamin for campaign finance fraud.   Upon being charged, the Lt. Governor resigned.  What the heck is wrong in the Empire State?  Former Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo was a POS, state Attorney-General Letitia James is a POS, current Governor Kathy “Heil Hitler” Hochul certainly is a POS just as current Big Apple Mayor Eric “Sleazebag” Adams is and his predecessor, Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio most definitely was. It would appear that the Empire State has rapidly passed Illinois as the most corrupt state in the Union.  They have lost other losers such as former Governor Eliot Spitzer and former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, and an extensive list of others.  How embarrassing.
  102. 2022 Tuesday Q: Political News III- It appears that Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, is aware that his popularity is waning.  He is pondering his political future.  You still have a couple of years to straighten up, Mitt, but NO true Republican would ever vote for you again, especially if you tried to run for the presidency again.   In other news, Twitter has temporarily banned Jack Posobiec over his Disney ‘grooming’ parody.  Speaking of Disney, up until the state passed the Parental Rights in Education law donated $190,000 to GOP candidates whereas now, no more.  We suspect they donate loads of money to Democrats, however… Texas Department of Education issues guidelines for library books in its schools.  No perversion here, folks.
  103. 2022 Tuesday R: Mass Shootings News- This morning, a shooter carried out an attack on New York City’s subway system using smoke bombs to confuse his intended victims and a handgun to shoot them.  He shot 10-11 people but killed none.  Approximately 16 people were injured in the melee and while fleeing the scene.  Many of the victims appeared to be Asian and the shooter was identified as a black man named Frank James.  Law enforcement later found a U-Haul truck from Arizona and are carrying out a massive manhunt for Mr. James.  Currently, there is no belief that the mass shooting is related to terrorism.  (Note- if it were a white guy, it would be white supremacism run amok).  Regarding this unfortunate incident, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that attacks ‘follow the undermining of the NYPD.’
  104. 2022 Tuesday S: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1754 what with a $106 million jackpot on the line: 02, 08, 14, 20, 31, and Mega 17. Out of 59,520 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 75 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $237 apiece.
  105. 2022 Tuesday T: Thanks for joining us today, we are attempting to become a bit more middle of the road so that entities such as Bing won’t throw our search results into the garbage.  This, of course, will require time and diligence on our parts just as it will require patience on the part of our critics.  We see the writing upon the wall, Biden administration.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

101. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 11, 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.

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

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

  81. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 563,134 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 198,469 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 446 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  82. 2022 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,133,348 confirmed cases, 89,498 confirmed deaths, and 8,881,898 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,911,882 confirmed cases, 73,583 confirmed deaths, and 5,796,163 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 241,972 confirmed cases, 1,382 confirmed deaths, and 236,602 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,467,059 confirmed cases, 12,566 confirmed deaths, and 1,429,877 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Montana: they have 272,919 confirmed cases, 3,255 confirmed deaths, and 269,320 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]   
  83. 2022 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,006,177 confirmed cases, 10,591 confirmed deaths, and 3,941,841 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Barth, 209th place on the list: 4,313 cases of the virus, 6 confirmed death and 4,307 confirmed recoveries.[xix]                         
  84. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,308.08, DOWN 413.04 points (-1.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,411.96 DOWN 299.04 points (-2.18%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,412.53, DOWN 75.75 points (-1.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $95.10 per barrel, +0.81 (+0.86%).  The price of GOLD is $1,956.10 per troy oz., +7.90 (+0.41%) while the price of SILVER is $25.23 per troy ounce, +0.24 (+0.97%).  The price of PLATINUM is $981.20 per troy oz, +3.40 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $4.63 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[xx]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,448.73 per troy oz., +16.56 (+0.68%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,900.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.53%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,180,000.00 per CNY/T, -30,000.00 (-2.48%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,229.00 per USD/T, -145.50 (-4.31%). The price of ZINC is $4,320.00 per USD/T., +65.50 (+1.54%).   The price of COCOA is $2,616.00 per USD/T, -4.00 (-0.15%).  The price of COFFEE is $236.60 per USD/T, +4.95 (+2.14%).  The price of LUMBER is $886.30 USD 1,000 board feet -63.60 (-6.70%).[xxi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 19.92, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 81.00 of theirs.    In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,458.50 and in Jamaican Dollar, a buck equals 153.87 and in Japanese Yen, one dollar equals 125.42 of theirs.[xxii]       
  85. 2022 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.763 per gallon, $4.072 in Florida, $5.228 in Hawaii, and $4.680 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: District of Columbia- $4.237.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 13th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Egypt: $1.971 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,378,296,809,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Thailand the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany.  This nation holds $75,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  86. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian troops operating in Ukraine have been nominated for ‘Darwin Awards’ over the idiots removing ‘radioactive souvenirs’ from the Chernobyl power plant in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, Ukrainian military authorities are alleging the Russians have used drones with which to disperse chemical weapons in the beleaguered port city of Mariupol.  Civilian and military authorities are awaiting independent confirmation that the Russians did indeed use chemical weapons.  Speaking of such barbarism, a Chechen leader says that Russian President Vladimir Putin should indeed use tactical nuclear weapons to subdue the Ukrainians.  Still, Moscow claims they have eradicated all of Ukraine’s S-300 missile systems.
  87. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says ‘Russia will not suspend its military operations in Ukraine even as ‘peace talks’ between the two countries are underway.   Meanwhile, although the Russians claim otherwise, the mayor of Mariupol says that at least 10,000 civilians have died during the siege and that when the siege is lifted, the true numbers of dead civilians could double that.  How is it the United Nations is not raising troops from member countries and forcing Russia to stop its malevolent actions in a peaceful country?
  88. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris- California’s shame- has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster for the past 374 days and worse, she has not shown up to do more than a couple hours’ worth of work in 288 days.  What has the country done to deserve a vice president such as her?  Okay, we do our best to continue computing the true costs of illegal immigration on America, the same way that One America News did prior to Direct TV removing them from their list of channels.  Perhaps because we continue promoting the honest-to-God numbers to the best of our abilities, perhaps this is why we find ourselves under assault from some of the biggest search engines.  It is what it is.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders since January 01, 2022, is $642,844,149.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since the undynamic duo took their oaths with which they swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution is $42,388,919,892.  The number of illegals we estimate to have crossed the border since January 20, 2021, is 1,026,488.  Fourth and final, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 45,401,750.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is the prime reason our country is in a state of economic malaise (not to mention liberal policies).[xxvi] (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  89. 2022 Monday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $53.97 (2) AstraZeneca: $70.63 (3) Novavax: $57.54 (4) Merck & Company: $86.63 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.88  (6) BioNTech: $170.55 (7) Moderna: $160.00.
  90. 2022 Monday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $102.12 (2) Boeing: $175.04 (3) General Dynamics: $243.55 (4) Lockheed Martin: $464.30 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $462.14.
  91. 2022 Monday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.53 (2) DuPont: $68.48 (3) 3M: $150.12 (4) Honeywell: $189.27  (5) Teijen: $1,312.00.
  92. 2022 Monday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $23.55 (2) Beyond Meat: $43.96  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $67.86.
  93. 2022 Monday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $154.33 (2) Lowe’s: $204.75 (3) Home Depot: $306.89 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $584.67 (5) Amazon: $3,022.44.
  94. 2022 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The White House is preparing for ‘extraordinarily-elevated CPI numbers,’ numbers that are sure to lead massive losses in House and Senate seats in November.  Next, the administration nominates a new commander to lead NATO forward.  Meanwhile, even as COVID-19 numbers continue tanking, the Biden administration is seeking a resumption of forcing EVERY federal worker or contractor to undergo forced vaccination with one of the COVID-19 vaccines.
  95. 2022 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– Although President Joe Biden is going to continue forcing all federal workers to undergo vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccines- and although Dr. Anthony Fauci continues saying the American people are going to have to learn to live with this foul disease, the Pentagon is moving onto the next pandemic, whatever it might be.
  96. 2022 Monday P: Political News I– Law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania arrested an elderly man who was sticking “I DID THAT” stickers onto gasoline pumps.  The stickers featured President Joseph R. Biden pointing to the exorbitant cost of the gas pumped.  Other hilarious stickers featured the nation’s vice president, quoted as saying, “I HELPED.”  While we recognize gas station owners must peel the stickers off- sometimes with difficulty- one cannot sidestep the fact that energy costs are sky high, and that the Biden-Harris administration bears COMPLETE responsibility and not Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.
  97. 2022 Monday Q: Political News II– Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson blasted the White House and its stance on gender affirming/gender reassignment surgeries.  Of course, the White House is a big proponent of life-altering gender surgeries which seems rather devilish to many.  Next, famed economist Peter Navarro says that a ‘perfect storm’ of stagflation is heading our way.   In other news, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush says, ‘it’s right for Governor Greg Abbott to send illegal aliens- what the left euphemistically labels as ‘undocumented migrants- to Washington, D.C., and to other ‘sanctuary locales.’  Finally, in other news Democrat locales would be wise to emulate, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill this morning with which to bolster fatherhood programs across the Sunshine State.
  98. 2022 Monday R: Political News III– Stacey Abrams-backed election law in the Peach State is going to trial.   Meanwhile, in Iowa, a hubbub continues following last night’s ruling by a judge in the state that won’t permit Senator Chuck Grassley’s struggling Democratic challenger- Abby Finkenauer to appear on the state’s Democratic Party primary ballot.  To qualify for the primary ballot, a candidate must have 100 signatures- or more- each from 19 counties to make the grade.  Although the Finkenauer campaign submitted more than 3,500 signatures, she did not get the necessary number to face off against Senator Grassley.  C’ est la vie.  Of the signatures, questions swirled around three of them from two counties.  Go figure.  Stop registering illegal aliens.
  99. 2022 Monday S: Political News IV– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says the White House is being mum on its plans with which to shove portions of the Build Back Better plan through to fruition.  We can only speculate what other evil crap the administration is attempting to insert into this doomed-to-fail bill.  Election Day is fast approaching and contrary to what many progressives are trumpeting, not every Democrat wants to lose his or her seat supporting this crumbling ‘signature package.’
  100. 2022 Monday T: Second Amendment News– The National Rifle Association has slammed President Joseph R. Biden’s new executive orders on the evil ‘ghost guns.’  Since before the founding of the country, Americans have made their own firearms and ammunition and even though President Biden believes he has a winner with this issue, Americans will continue making their own guns and crafting their own ammunition.  It is what free people in a free country do.  We are not communist China yet nor if older Americans continue defending freedom from the new generation of indoctrinated losers, we will continue doing this until the day we die.
  101. 2022 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #974 with a jackpot of $85 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 24, 31, 34, and Power 04.  Out of 62,911 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $33,732.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

91. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, APRIL 01, 2022

2021 Thursday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- A new report suggests that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov’s $4 million book on the AMAZING job he did with the ‘Chi-Vi’ (yeah, right) was written and edited by the Lov Gov’s staffers. We wonder, did the Gropin’ Gov share any of his money with them?

  28. 1917 Sunday: During World War I, the Russians are pushing towards Bagdad with the Ottoman Turks in headlong retreat.  The ‘Sick Man of Europe,’ the Ottomans because they have been in decline for so long are battling to hold onto Palestine as well as to prevent a Russian invasion from the north and east (not that the Russians are doing all that well- in a few more months, the Bolshevik Revolution would knock them out of the fight).
  29. 1918 Monday: With Russia embroiled in the civil war between the Reds and the Whites, the Germans continue pummeling them for concessions on all manner of things.  Today, they give Moscow an ultimatum as parts of the new Soviet Union breaks apart.  Give Finland their freedom or we will continue operations against you.  The Kaiser’s Germany and the Finns have a history.

  36. :  The first commercially successful fluorescent lamps hit the market.  Finally, the Baseball Hall of Fame opened in Cooperstown, N.Y.
  37. 1939 Saturday: The United States recognized the government of General Francisco Franco in Spain; the same day Franco went on the radio to declare victory in the Spanish Civil War.  Meanwhile, the German General Staff is finishing their plan for the invasion of Poland, scheduled for later in the year.
  38. 1940 Monday: The Soviet NKVD- the secret police- begin trucking captured Polish officers into the Katyn Forest where they will soon begin machine-gunning them to death, at least 22,000 Polish officers and intelligentsia, people the Soviets view as impediments to them forcing communism onto the conquered portion of the nation they control.
  39. 1941 Tuesday: Pro-German Rashid Ali al-Ghailani grabs power in Iraq.  Angry at their occupation by the Brits, the “Golden Square,” the movement to oust the British gets underway.  At first, the British would be surprised and overrun but within a few days would be able to recover and strike back.  Meanwhile, in North Africa, following their costly defeat at El Agheila, the British are falling back in headlong retreat across the coastal road.  Is the road for the Axis to Egypt WIDE OPEN?  Meanwhile, German troops are moving towards the Yugoslav border.  They have a date with the Yugoslav people…
  40. 1942 Wednesday: The Japanese army continues the conquest of Burma, pushing the British back in one concentrated assault after another.  Meanwhile, in the Mediterranean Sea theater, the Luftwaffe continues smothering the island fortress of Malta with sortie after sortie of bombers, attacking ships, military targets, and civilian towns and cities.  Still, the people of Malta won’t submit to the Nazis and their Fascist Italian henchmen.
  41. 1943 Thursday: Craig “Stinkbug” Carrici was born in Pumpkin Center,[i] California, on this date; he is the founder of the AICP-END Blog.  Elsewhere, in the North African Theater of World War II, the British, the Americans, and the Free French and Free Poles continue pushing the Afrika Korps into an ever-shrinking corner of Tunisia.  As long as the Axis troops can continue the fight, they can keep Allied assets tied up there instead of being redeployed to other fronts.  Still, the end is coming and it’s coming soon.
  42. 1944 Saturday: John Barbata, future drummer of the Turtles[ii], the Jefferson Airplane[iii], the Jefferson Starship, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young[iv] was born on this date in Passaic, New Jersey.   Elsewhere, during the air war over occupied Europe, a grave error occurs today as 50 B-24 bombers flew into Switzerland’s airspace and bombed the wrong target, killing at least 40 or more civilians.  Pilots shot down over Switzerland of all sides were typically interned there until the end of the war and the Swiss were not big fans of the Allies, the United States in particular.  This mistake did not help things between the two countries.
  43. 1945 Sunday: American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II.  This would prove to be one of the costliest fights of World War II and the catastrophic loss of life on both sides would press President Harry S. Truman to authorize the dropping of atomic bombs onto the Japanese home islands in the hopes it would force them to surrender.
  44. 1946 Monday: Bassist Ronnie Lane of both the Small Faces[v] and the Faces[vi] was born in England.  Elsewhere, Weight Watchers formed.

Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais informs his command to cut the Thai auxiliaries loose.  No longer are they dependable.[ix]
  51. 1960 Friday: The United States launched TIROS-1, the nation’s first weather satellite on this date.
  52. 1961 Saturday: Evangelist Jim Bakker marries Tammy Faye.

Kennedy and then Lyndon Baines Johnson from January 21, 1961, until today.  His replacement- the 58th U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry H. Fowler- assumed office on this date.  Also, a Democrat, Secretary Fowler served under President Lyndon Baines Johnson from today until December 20, 1968.
  55. 1967 Saturday: The United States Department of Transportation begins operation.
  56. 1970 Wednesday: President Richard M. Nixon signs the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act, an act that banned cigarette advertisements effective on January 1, 1971.  Meanwhile, for his part in the My Lai Massacre, the U.S. Army charged Captain Ernest Medina on this date.
  57. 1972 Saturday: The first Major League Baseball players’ strike began; it lasted 12 days.  Elsewhere, in Budokan, Tokyo, Japan, heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali wins a 15-round unanimous decision over his opponent, Mac Foster, to put his pro record to 35-1 while that of Foster went to 28-2.
  58. 1974 Monday: Ayatollah Khomeini calls for an Islamic Republic in Iran.  We call for the death of the ayatollah.  The guy is little more than a POS stuck to the bottom of one’s shoe.
  59. 1976 Thursday: Stephen Wozniak and Steve Jobs found Apple Computer.
  60. 1979 Sunday: Following the flight of the Shah, Iran proclaims themselves an “Islamic Republic.”  This horrible country would become the number one state sponsor od terrorism.
  61. 1982 Thursday: The U.S. transferred the Canal Zone to Panama.
  62. 1983 Friday: Tens of thousands of anti-nuclear demonstrators linked arms in a 14-mile human chain spanning three defense installations in rural England, including the Greenham Common U.S. Air Base.
  63. 1991 Monday: After five years of holding British citizen Roger Cooper hostage, the scumbag Islamist regime in Iran released him.  Meanwhile here in the United States, the Supreme Court ruled that attorneys could not bar jurors from serving due to their race.  Finally, with the ongoing collapse of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact disbanded. 
  64. 1992 Wednesday: The National Hockey League’s Players’ Association went on it’s first-ever strike, which lasted 10 days.  Elsewhere, the world’s 7 wealthiest nations agree on $24 billion aid for former U.S.S.R.
  65. 1998 Wednesday: Paula Jones’ sexual harassment suit against President Bill Clinton is thrown out of court.
  66. 2000 Saturday: The 2000 United States Census is underway as of today.
  67. 2001 Sunday: George W. Bush has not been in office long when his first international crisis occurs as a U.S. intelligence-gathering aircraft flying in international waters is intercepted and rammed by a Chi-Com fighter jet.  The U.S. plane is seriously damaged and is forced down in Chi-Com territory while the PRC warplane goes down in the ocean and sinks.  The Chi-Coms will keep our people prisoner and will take the spy plane apart one screw at a time.
  68. 2002 Monday: Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis and fighting between terrorists and Israeli Defense Forces continues.  Gradually, Israeli troops are pushing the rabid jihadists towards the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem where the human garbage will seek refuge from an Israeli ass-whooping.  
  69. 2003 Tuesday: American troops entered a hospital in Nasiriyah, Iraq, and rescued Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, who had been held prisoner since jihadists ambushed her supply column on March 23.
  70. 2004 Thursday: Suffering from the effects of kidney and liver disease, Paul Atkinson—guitarist with the British rock band, the Zombies[x]—loses his fight with his maladies and dies in a hospital in Santa Monica, California; he was 58-years-old.
  71. 2005 Friday: Hamas and Islamic Jihad have announced that they are considering- in principle- of joining the Palestine Liberation Organization.
  72. 2006 Saturday: White House Press Secretary Tony Snow announces that the administration is concerned over news of a potential toppling of the Lebanese government  by a cabal of Syria, Iran, and Hamas forces.  Of course, it appears that the Bush administration is searching for yet another opportunity to launch a new regime change war in the Middle East, ostensibly to help an ‘ally,’ Beirut.
  73. 2007 Sunday: Former United States Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, Republican, throws his hat into the 2008 Presidential Election race. 
  74. 2008 Tuesday: While the Dalai Lama is visiting India, his hosts request that he not anger neighboring communist China.  India is unclear of its military abilities should the Chi-Coms begin launching attacks along their joint border.  
  75. 2009 Wednesday: In St. Petersburg, Russia, some anti-communist wag partially toppled a statue of Vladimir Lenin at the railway station with a bomb.  Police are seeking the suspect.   Meanwhile, the U.S. and Russia commence talks on a new Strategic Arms Limitations Treaty. 
  76. 2010 Thursday: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev- Vladimir Putin’s puppet- makes a surprise visit to Dagestan following a double suicide attack the day before that killed at least 12 people and wounded numerous others.  Meanwhile, former Alaskan Governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin gives a speech in Nevada to tens of thousands of people seeking to get Senator Harry Reid, D-NV, out of office.
  77. 2011 Friday: Off the coast of Greece, Crete suffers a 6.2-magnitude earthquake.  Elsewhere, across the Near and Middle East, the Arab Spring continues as nations from the Persian Gulf to the end of North Africa at the Atlantic Ocean continue to see people running amok, trying to topple governments and murder leaders.  It’s akin to watching global insanity among members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.
  78. 2012 Sunday: In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood nominates Chairman Khairat El-Shater as a candidate for the May 2012 presidential elections.  Meanwhile, as the Syrian civil war continues to rage, Syrian military assets and artillery begin assaulting the city of Homs where a bunch of antigovernment and perhaps even ISIS thugs are holed up.  Wipe ‘em out, boys.
  79. 2013 Monday: In preparation for plans to step down in 2015, the president of Sudan Omar al-Bashar gives an order to release all political prisoners.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, at the annual convening of the People’s Supreme Assembly, their version of a parliament, begins after Kim Jong Un finished leveling threats of thermonuclear war against BOTH South Korea and the United States.  Fine people do something about it, President Barack Hussein Obama.
  80. 2014 Tuesday:  Fifty-eight miles north of the Chilean city of Iquique, an earthquake of 8.2 magnitude hits the area, stunning the region.  An earlier earthquake that hit on March 16 was 6.2-magnitude on the Richter scale; scientists predict an even bigger one soon.  Meanwhile, thanks to Russian land-grabs in the Crimea, NATO cancels all civil and military cooperation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  We’re sure they’re upset.  Elsewhere, the death toll in the West African nation of Guinea from its ongoing Ebola virus outbreak is now at 80 dead with possibly dozens sickened.
  81. 2015 Wednesday: Following problems with reaching a self-imposed reduction in water usage in drought-stricken California, Democrat Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown mandates a 25-percent reduction under threat of legal punishment to force lower usage of the precious resource.  Meanwhile, the governor-fearful of rising sea levels, continues to allow millions of acre-feet of water to flow out into the Pacific Ocean to protect the Delta smelt.  Impeach the bastard!  Elsewhere, famed British guitarist Dave Ball who played with Procol Harum died on this date in his native England; he was 65 years-old.
  82. 2016 Friday: At the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, the Golden State Warriors’ NBA record for home game wins ends as the Boston Celtics beat them, 109-106; it was the team’s first loss at home since January 2015.  Elsewhere, as world leaders convene in Washington, D.C., at the annual Nuclear Security Summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives them something on which to chew: he fires off a couple of missiles from the east coast of his s***hole country and into the ocean.  “Notice me,” appears to be the message.
  83. 2017 Saturday: In Stockholm, Sweden, famed singer/songwriter Bob Dylan wins his Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in a private ceremony.  God bless you, Bob.   Meanwhile, the government of Communist China announces its plan to build a city three-times the size of New York City (using American money, of course, purloined from us via disastrous past trade ‘deals’) in Xlongan, a new area.  Three years later, they spread the Wuhan Flu to the rest of the world.  Thank you, China, thank you.
  84. 2018 Sunday: In the 37th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, a stunner of a game occurs as Notre Dame beats Mississippi State by a final of 61-58 what with ND forward Jessica Shepard scoring 19 points.  Elsewhere, combined U.S. and South Korean forces commence their annual military drills, codenamed “Foal Eagle” and “Key Resolve.”  Of course, North Korean strongman, Kim Jong Un, is unhappy with the drills.
  85. 2019 Monday: China announces new laws to take effect on May 01, 2019, to stop the production of fentanyl-related opiates.  Okay.  China is the number one provider of opiates to the United States, being the ‘unseen hand’ distributing harmful drugs to Americans and causing far too many to die from them.  Shame.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi ARAMCO is the most profitable company in the world what with $111.1 billion in the previous year.    
  86. 2020 Wednesday: China continues being a major problem for the rest of the globe as the Wuhan Flu continues wreaking havoc wherever it shows up- with the strange exception of China (or so they claim)- with total number of confirmed cases at or near 911,308 and total number of confirmed deaths at 45,497.  We now know, however, that China has concealed- intentionally- the number of confirmed cases and number of confirmed deaths within their country so who the heck can believe anything these totalitarians claim?  The U.S. number of confirmed cases is closing in at 213,000 with 47,000 or so confirmed deaths.  This is outrageous, yet in China, the infamous WET MARKETS are open once more so the populace can enjoy their bat, rat, cat, dog, monkey, snakes, lizards, insects, and other exotic and endangered animals on their dinner table.  Shame!  World beware of the Wuhan Boogie Woogie!
  87. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– A new poll shows that 59-percent of the GOP’s voters do not approve of more gun control laws.  Meanwhile, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AK, said today that ‘Joe Biden’s border crisis is WORSE that a crisis, it’s sheer insanity.’  We concur.  Even federal officials are nonplussed over the (lack of) Biden border plan with which to distribute illegal alien brats across the country.[xi]   Elsewhere, Congressmen John Katko, R-NY 24th congressional district, and Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have authored a bipartisan bill with which to bring sanity back to the southern border.  Moving on, Representative Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that the LEFT puts the fear of God (well, in the case of Democrats- Satan) into Joe Biden which prevents him from owning up to HIS border crisis.
  88. 2021 Thursday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– A recent report shows that the scumbag Iranians are increasing uranium enrichment in their underground lairs more than the law permits.  We say, “Nuke them!  Now!”  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says his major regret is that the administration was unable to get North Korea to give up its nukes.  It is what it is, Mike.  Next, ahead of upcoming OPEC plus meetings, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are discussing energy affordability but then, the U.S. says it’s going to minimize the number of U.S. military deployments to the Middle East to help the Saudis fight the Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.  Meanwhile, the Russians are moving armored and supply units via train towards the eastern Ukraine.  With muddled Old Joe Biden in office, WAR is coming soon.  We predicted this months ago.[xii]  Finally, a U.S. Air Force general warns that Russian activity off the coast of Alaska is increasing at a kinetic pace.  NOT GOOD.
  89. 2021 Thursday B: SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS / GUNS– Like always, the Democrats are pushing for more and more restrictions on firearms.  Good luck with that.  The FBI reports that the month of March 2021 saw the highest number of gun background checks in the U.S. ever what with 4.7 million new requests.  Wow.  Awesome.[xiii]   Speaking of guns, yesterday, we had yet another mass shooting under the Biden administration, this one in California in which a shooter killed four people including a 9-year-old kid.  Joe, WTF, dude?
  90. 2021 Thursday C: ECONOMIC NEWS– a recent report shows that factory activity is expanding at its highest pace since 1983.  People must be thinking President Donald J. Trump is coming back.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration allowed a Trump-era rule to lapse and this one was on the number of H-1B Visas handed out to foreign tech workers.  Americans trained to do these jobs can return to drawing unemployment checks because half of India is returning to the U.S.  Joe, again, WTF?  Elsewhere, last week, 719,000 new claims for unemployment insurance benefits were filed.  This is down yet again.  In other economic news, corporate tenants are looking to offload expensive office space now that millions of Americans can work from home.
  91. 2021 Thursday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– A new report suggests that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov’s $4 million book on the AMAZING job he did with the ‘Chi-Vi’ (yeah, right) was written and edited by the Lov Gov’s staffers.  We wonder, did the Gropin’ Gov share any of his money with them?  Moving on, the U.S. Supreme Court gave the Federal Communications Commission the go-ahead to loosen rules on media companies ownership.  Meanwhile, Colorado is becoming the latest state to weigh in on its sports teams having Native American mascots.  Okay.  Elsewhere, U.S. airlines passengers fell by 60-percent in 2020 (thanks to the Chi-Coms) while gun seizures in the United States are at an all-time high.  Finally, American Jews report a major spike in Antisemitism, especially online.  
  92. 2021 Thursday E: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS I– Joe Biden condemns the Texas Rangers baseball team using the harshest language (for him) over their opening the ballpark in Arlington, Texas, to FULL CAPACITY!  Awesome.  Life is returning to normal in civilized places.  Next, the Biden infrastructure plan is to RAISE corporate taxes which has led Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell to label it a ‘liberal wish list.’  What with growing pushback across the country to this ignorant ‘plan,’ Joe Biden is demanding his Cabinet ‘go out and begin promoting the $2 trillion give-away to liberal causes.’[xiv]  Finally, for some reason known only to God Almighty, Joe Biden is sending $125 million to the frigging Palestinians.  WTF?  (Note- the Senate GOP is BEGGING Joe Biden to keep jobs in America, not send them overseas which always seems to be Joe’s way).
  93. 2021 Thursday F: COVID-19 NEWS– Pfizer reports that after six months, it’s shots for the coronavirus remain 91-percent effective.  As long as it’s not that skin-peeling, Johnson & Johnson crap, we’re good.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, presented a new bill, “The Fire Fauci Act.”  Everyone is sick of the AMAZING Dr. “Tiny Tony” Fauci.  This man has lied and spread so much misinformation that it’s high time this guy was booted out on his butt.  He’s a bum.  
  94. 2021 Thursday G: POLITICAL CORRECTNESS/WOKE NEWS/MORON NEWS– Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia is firing back at befuddled Old Joe Biden’s demand that the Major League Baseball All-Star Game be pulled from Atlanta, due to the new Voting Rights Bill in the Peach State.  ‘Ridiculous,’ says the man sitting in overweight Stacey Abrams’ seat (yeah, right, LOL).  Next, Bud Light pulled a fast one on the American people (after all, it’s April Fool’s Day) by showing photos of its new pizza-flavored seltzer.  Yuck (but of course, young people are stupid and like all manner of stupid stuff).   Moving on, incredibly unattractive and terribly stupid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” aka Sandy Cortez (her birth name) is upping the ante on Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill.[xv]  She wants a $10 trillion infrastructure bill.  What, is this f***ing monopoly money?  Finally, the Star Wars franchise is going to have new trans/nonbinary characters.  Ah, aren’t you all WOKE?  Dumb asses.
  95. 2021 Thursday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II– Iran and other world powers are discussing the re-entry of the United States into the Iran Nuclear Deal, aka the JCPOA.  Wow.  Thanks, Joe.  Elsewhere, BIG TECH guy Tim Cook blasts Georgia for its new voting rights law while remaining entirely silent on Uighur concentration camps in Xinjiang Province.  That’s a BIG CORPORATE head for you, sucking up to Beijing while blasting fellow Americans.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, seven pro-democracy advocates in Hong Kong have just been convicted in a ‘Chi-Com court’ for daring to defend the deal the Chi-Coms promised to observe- a 50-year-transition.  That’s communists for you.  Next, last night Tucker Carlson reported on Canada’s INTERNMENT HOTELS where all Canadian citizens exiting airplanes in that country are whisked off to internment centers where they are held for three days- or until repeated COVID-19 tests clear them (still, after three days)- before being released.  Even worse, the internees pay for their own room and board which according to Mr. Carlson sees little food and even less water provided to the inmates.  Even worse, the doors don’t lock and there have been reports of sexual assaults occurring in the middle of the night.  This is Canada? 
  96. 2021 Thursday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II–  Angry Los Angeles County residents are suing the L.A. County Teachers’ Union as well as the Los Angeles Unified School District for NOT holding in-person classes for the kids.  (Note- we look forward to the disciplinary problems the teachers are going to face when schools reopen.  Teachers are going to get their asses beat and even murdered by out-of-control sociopathic students.  Serves them right).  Next, Lara Trump says, ‘it’s outrageous’ that her interview with her father-in-law was banned from Facebook and Instagram.  Do what we did- we closed our social media accounts with the exception of Lilah’s Twitter account.  Elsewhere, Governor Greg Gianforte, R-MT, signed a bill into law in his state that prohibits SANCTUARY CITIES and demands that ALL law enforcement cooperate with federal law enforcement officers and agencies.  Finally, a report on the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021- the Capitol Hill Riots, the ones in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter infiltrated peaceful Trump supporters and carried out an incursion into the Capitol says that the majority of the blame falls on D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s ‘police forces being unprepared.’  There you go.

Today in History, April 01, 2021, at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day:


[i] Stinkbug would always say he was born in Oildale, California, which is 10 miles or so north of Pumpkin Center because he was embarrassed to tell people he was born in Pumpkin Center because people would laugh.  Now, he says he doesn’t give a f*** what anyone says.  Happy birthday, Stinky!

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

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vi] See previous.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of Steely Dan at some point within the next 10-15 years.  Please stay with us.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of this exciting professional band, Toto, at some point in the future.

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

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

[xi] Chef Lilah Paulikovich in Hawaii reports that the first planeload of illegal alien minors arrived at Honolulu’s airport the other day.  In many places, foster care children are getting booted onto the streets so illegal alien snots can take their place.  Folks, what the Democrats are doing with illegal aliens is the same thing they did with black slaves in the Old South prior to the Civil War.  The Democrats are always on the wrong side of history, fighting to protect the evil institution of slavery, in this case, the economic low-wage slavery of illegal aliens.

[xii] Last year we predicted an alliance of communist China, Russia, Iran, and probably some lesser members such as Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and others and that they would launch various actions in their ‘neck of the woods’ because with Joe Biden in the White House, folks, there isn’t going to be a better time to launch attacks around the world, rather like the Axis during World War II.  It’s coming. 

[xiii] Virtually everyone- and we mean everyone- here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM has gone out- with family members- and added guns, accessories, and ammunition like there’s no tomorrow.  F*** the Democrats.

[xiv] Yet, “Cocaine Mitch” is praising Joe Biden while slamming his administration.  That’s the way, Mitch, that’s the way to play BOTH SIDES of the fence. 

[xv] House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that ‘Joe Biden’s absurd $2 trillion ‘infrastructure bill’ is no joke.  We have to stop this crap.

  60. 2021 Tuesday: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I– in the first outrageous news story of the day, a new report says that 2.64 million illegal aliens are receiving COVID-19 relief checks which is BULLS**T.  In the second outrageous tidbit of news today regarding the swamping of the border with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, we learn today that in San Diego County[ix], California, where our illustrious colleague, Chef Pedro Muñoz resides (and he confirms this), members of the California Teachers Association is visiting illegal alien holding pens where the river-swimming brats are being warehoused to instruct them while it’s still not flipping safe for American kids to attend classes in person more than 5-8 hours per week.   What else do we need to hear to know that the ruling class DETESTS the people they were elected to help?[x] 
  61. 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– In Texas, the Border Patrol continues reporting that they are arresting hundreds of known illegal alien criminals, thugs, rapists, and narcoterrorists.  We also hear that Russians and Iranians are slipping into the country.  These people should all be shot on sight, especially the latter.  Next, we hear that the nation’s glorious NEW BORDER CZAR, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has no plans on visiting the southern border.   Elsewhere, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district warns the ‘Biden administration’ to stop dumping illegal aliens in the Copper State.  Enough is flipping enough already there Joe Biden.    Meanwhile, Congressman Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district held a round-table discussion with members of his community as to how best they can protect their communities from being overrun with illegal aliens.[xi]  Finally, Lara Trump is hammering the Democrats over their hypocrisy on the border.
  62. 2021 Tuesday B: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district is demanding to know from the U.S. Department of Justice as to whether any prosecutions are going to fall atop the Antifa scum and their reign of terror in Portland, Oregon.  Crickets.   Next, former Congressman Ron Paul, R-TX, says ‘Joe Biden’s gun control policies are going to do nothing to help kids.’  Next, Joe Biden’s new chief of diversity and inclusion at U.S. Southern Command Richard Torres Estrada has had his reign cut short.  Due to a bunch of hateful, mean tweets such as comparing President Donald J. Trump with Adolf Hitler, he is being reassigned elsewhere.  Oh, boohoo for you.  LOL.  Moving on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki was stumped by a reporter’s question at the daily briefing: “Can you explain WHY Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris fly all over the place- unessential travel- when Americans cannot do the same?  Psaki had no answer (but generally, she seldom does.  Talk about an overrated individual).  Finally, ‘Pandering Joe’ Biden has announced some court picks among them the first Muslim jurist at the federal level.  Keep on pandering, Joe.  Can’t wait to see who the pro-jihadi is…
  63. 2021 Tuesday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Senator Pat Toomey, R-PA, is putting a Federal Reserve Bank branch on notice to stop overstepping its boundaries meaning stop pushing the liberal WOKE agenda.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump continues blasting Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci as without him, Operation Warp Speed would never have occurred.  The undynamic duo continue taking credit for what the 45th president did for the American people (for those who want to get the shots which we don’t).  Elsewhere, a Jackson County, Michigan, judge drops ‘terrorism charges’ against three patriotic Americans charged with the attempted kidnapping of Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI.  According to the judge, there has to be evidence of ‘committing terrorist acts’ which there aren’t.  They will still face trial on other crimes.   Finally, our esteemed Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has ordered the Department of Justice to begin investigations into ALL (the white) HATE CRIMES afflicting our nation.  Whoa.
  64. 2021 Tuesday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– as a 10th accuser represented by famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred blasts the corrupt, deviant New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, the cringing POS continues to claim that ‘grabbing and groping women is a cultural norm,’ that the ‘Gropin’ Love Gov’ meant nothing wrong by his actions.[xii]  He is sorry if ‘he offended anyone.’  Regarding another deviate, Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer Ghislaine Maxwell, she finds herself facing added charges, charges of corrupting underage 14-year-old girls.  You in trouble there, chickee.   Elsewhere- and we don’t understand this- Nike- the maker of Lil NAS X’s satanic tennis shoes is suing the rapper to remove the ‘human blood component’ in the shoes.  YOU make the shoes, stop making the crap and throw them on the bonfire.  Enough with satanic bulls*** already.  In other news, Dr. Nicholas Meriwether, Ph.D. of Ohio’s Shawnee State University has won a court case on appeal over his refusal to use tranny-friendly gender terms.  Good.  Tell the trannys- aka chicks with dicks- to shut up and grow up.
  65. 2021 Tuesday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– the World Health Organization’s boss Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- in the hip pocket of Comrade Xi Jinping- slams his own COVID-19 report and demands a further investigation into whether or not there was a leak of the Chi-Vi at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  This is strange.  Former S.C. governor and former U.N. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley says the ‘WHO COVID-19 report is nothing more than Chi-Com propaganda.’   In other heartwarming news (LOL), Google Maps will now direct its users (no longer us) to ‘eco-friendly routes.’  Are you going to direct El Jefe Climate Czar John F. Kerry to ‘eco-friendly routes?’  That will be the day.  Next, the Freedom Caucus is split on how to combat the “Chi-Com Joe” Biden agenda.  Folks, you do exactly what the Democrats do: court-shop and get one injunction after another slapped on every crap-ass issue the Biden Gang tries to stuff down our throats.
  66. 2021 Tuesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Mt. Rushmore is shut down and 400 households in the area are evacuated as out-of-control wildfires continue to rage.  Elsewhere, the Derek Chauvin murder trial continues.  The teen who shot the video of George Floyd’s death says that Mr. Floyd begged for his life.  Famed legal trial attorney and scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says, ‘thank God for cellphone cameras at least in this case.’  What we are curious of is the story we first heard last year shortly after the murder of Mr. Floyd was the connection between then-Officer Chauvin and Mr. Floyd who both worked security at a local nightclub, the El Nuevo Rodeo.[xiii]  When the story first hit, it opened a door that might show there was a personal issue between the two men that Officer Chauvin then acted upon which would possibly up the charges to first-degree murder but then…that case visited.   Meanwhile, leftist do what leftists do and following the new Georgia Elections Law, democratic-socialists are demanding that Major League Baseball and Professional Golf Association BOYCOTT the Peach State as well a third suit challenging the law was filed today.  My, my, my.  Finally, Philadelphia cops are searching for a POS shooter who shot and killed one person in a shopping mall.  Sounds rather personal.
  67. 2021 Tuesday G: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,788,017 confirmed cases, +30,892, 2,794,721  confirmed deaths, +6,509, and 72,501,170 confirmed recoveries, +244,446.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,549,435 confirmed cases, up 230,660 from yesterday’s reporting, 555,577 confirmed deaths, UP 5,714, and 118,013,462 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiv] 
  68. 2021 Tuesday H: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 228,367 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  70. 2021 Tuesday J:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,066.96, DOWN 104.41 points (-0.31%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,045.39, DOWN 14.25 points (-0.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,958.55, DOWN 12.54 points (-0.32%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.39 per barrel, -0.16 (-0.26%).  The price of GOLD is $1,683.30 per troy oz., -0.60 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $24.06 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,156.00 per troy oz, -1.70 (-0.15%) while the price of COPPER is $3.98 per pound, 0.00 (0.00%).[xvi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,592.00 per troy oz, +53.50 (+2.11%).[xvii] The price of RHODIUM is $26,900.00 per troy oz., -600.00 (-2.18%).[xviii]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.57.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Bosnian and Herzegovina convertible mark, one greenback equals 1.67.[xix]  
  71. 2021 Tuesday K: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.896 per gallon, $2.867 in Florida, $3.660 in Hawaii, and $3.325 in Washington state.[xx]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,112,715,077,810 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  72. 2021 Tuesday L: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III– Former CBP head Mark Morgan says that more than 30,000 illegal aliens have been released into the United States on their own recognizance since January by the Biden administration.   In Texas, a facility designed to hold 250 illegal aliens is now holding more than 4,000 thanks to the fraudulent Biden-Harris administration.   Photos continue coming out via clandestine sources showing the cruel and inhumane treatment the illegals have brought upon themselves.  Repeatedly raped, beaten, traumatized, and molested on the journey here, they suffer more rape and enslavement once they manage to escape illegal holding pens.  The cartels keep them in bondage here.  People, everyone arm up while we still have the opportunity.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, is seeking information on the $87.9 million contract the federal government has made with hoteliers in the country so they can send excess illegal aliens to hotels.   What the f*** is going on?  Why do the Democratic-Socialists hate the American people as much as they do?   Finally, Sean Spicer asks WHY BORDER CZAR “Kooky Kamala” Harris HAS no border-specific meetings on her miniscule agenda?  Why?
  73. 2021 Tuesday M: Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1646 with a $152 million jackpot on the line tonight.  Here are the numbers: 11, 37, 47, 53, 56, and Mega 15.  Out of 77,199 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,144 apiece.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[vii] We are not clear as to when- or ever- we will begin doing the music of the Ramones but we sure as heck we do sometime over the next 25 years.

[viii] We began promoting the music of this legendary American rock band- the Young Rascals- beginning on Sunday, 08-December-2013 through Saturday, 21-December-2013.  This band is one everyone who loves rock music must look into and enjoy.

[ix] In San Diego County, health authorities announced that dozens and dozens of fence-jumping illegal alien girls are all testing positive for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Not good which is why we encourage the sowing of minefields along the southern border replete with antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat obstacles as well as seeding the Rio Grande River with alligator pups, laying in foo gas pits, electrifying the fence where possible, and doing whatever else must be done to stop the horde flooding into our country.  At some point, when the administration realizes they have F***ED UP in a major way, like the Romans, we will have to wage war on the illegal aliens within our country of cease to exist.  PATRIOTS MUST HEAD TO THE BORDER TO STOP THE TIDAL WAVE OF THIRD WORLD FLOTSAM AND JETSAM…

[x] IF you ever sought to know how violent events such as the French Revolution, the Bolshevik Revolution, or the Spanish Revolution occurred- or the ensuing civil wars that followed the last two- this is a perfect example.  YOU spit in the faces of the people long enough, do not be surprised when they drag out the LEADERS, put them up against the wall and begin shooting them or sending them to the gallows or to the guillotine.  An inevitable flashpoint is coming and anyone who thinks that it’s not coming sadly is crazy.  The citizens of Paris had had enough and stormed the Bastille, the Russian soldier demoralized that his commanders frittered their lives away succumbed to the toxic siren’s song of Marxism, while in Spain, wealthy aristocratic landowners and an unsympathetic church drove the masses to go berserk.  In the inevitable after in Spain, it required a Fascist to save the country, El Caudillo Francisco Franco while in France, it required its own fascist leader, Napoleon Bonaparte.  Who will lead the American people against the communist thugs pissing all over us?

[xi] We would like to suggest to Blue Dog border Democrats such as Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, IF you want to stop the border from disappearing, it’s time you folks either threaten Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi with becoming Republicans or that you will vote with the GOP.  Let her make all the threats she wants, at some point, you guys must shake this old bag’s control of all things Democratic Party.

[xii] The 10th accuser is a woman of Italian ancestry and she says, ‘kissing and hugging people is Italian but ONLY FOR FAMILY and the Gropin’ Gov is NOT FAMILY.  We hope to see the Lov Gov wearing an orange jumpsuit soon.  Maybe even his brother, too.

  58. 2019 Wednesday A: Off the coast of Libya, a merchant vessel plying the Mediterranean rescues more than 100 migrants floundering aboard a leaky boat.  Instead of being grateful to their rescuers, the migrants hijack the vessel and demand that its crew take them to the island of Malta where they have some sort of cockamamie idea, they will find safe harbor there.  However, Maltese authorities say, ‘that vessel is NOT docking in our waters.’ What the hell is wrong with these ‘migrants?’
  59. 2020 Friday: The COVID-19 statistics for the day (at the time of this publishing) stand at 558,52 confirmed cases what with 25,251 fatalities; U.S. statistics stand at 86,012 confirmed cases along with 1,301 confirmed deaths.  Communist China continues claiming that within the borders of this Marxist-Leninist ‘paradise,’ the numbers of new cases continue to decline and that hundreds of millions of happy Chinese are jumping onto buses and going back to work.  Whoa.  Why aren’t we living there?
  60. 2021 Saturday: JOE BIDEN NEWS- U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is said to have terminated the 25-30 members of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory board which includes Trump appointees such as Ken Cuccinelli, Tom Homan, and anyone else who might be going against the Biden regime’s OPEN BORDERS policy.   Something else that first occurred last night is yet another story about carrot and stick politics in the Biden administration and that is Joe Biden nominated Senator Joe Manchin’s wife for a cushy, Michelle Obama-style no-show gig- a federal commission- with which to reward the Manchin family and force Senator Manchin, D-WV, to throw the Senate filibuster rule under the bus.  Not good but most believe Manchin will cave, especially if his spouse- Gayle Connelly Manchin- is confirmed for the $160,000 per year gig as the co-chair of the Appalachian Regional Commission.  Republicans are on the spot- oppose it and you will anger Joe Manchin and support it and Joe Manchin will trash the filibuster anyway.  Boy, talk about being over a barrel.   
  61. 2021 Saturday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE- After spending 24 hours along the southern border, GOP lawmakers are demanding the Biden regime return to enforcing Trump era policies that were much more humane in their treatment of illegal aliens by preventing their arduous journey to the U.S. southern border and those that did who truly required asylum waited in Mexico for their court hearings.  The problem is, Joe Biden told them to come, everyone has heard him say it and it has been widely reported.  Why are people coming with machine-printed t-shirts with Biden-Harris campaign logos on them and claiming to be ‘Joe’s children?’  Joe told them to come.   Mark Morgan, former border chief under several presidents told Newsmax TV that Joe Biden’s ideological hubris is creating the border chaos.   Next, Congressman Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district told Newsmax, “NO to mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.”  Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz shared video with news media of illegal alien kids being housed in ‘Joe Biden cages’ just as they were under the Obama-Biden administration.
  62. 2021 Saturday B: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS- The People’s Republic of China is forming a new Axis to rival that of Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan, Fascist Italy, and junior members Hungary, Rumania, Bulgaria, and Croatia (as well as with other foreign nationals coming from occupied countries or from nonbelligerent Fascist Spain) by inking a 25-year deal with Iran that will supply the massive communist global power with oil and petroleum products.  With Russia already in the camp and various tributary countries all throughout Asia, Africa, Latin America, and even in Europe, the Chinese communists are well on the way to world domination, especially with a feeble Joe Biden in the White House.  Fred H. Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy told Newsmax TV that ‘an indecisive, weak Joe Biden imperils the entire U.S. and free world.’  We concur.   Interestingly, Joe Biden is proposing an alternative to China’s Belt and Road Initiative- now that is something we’d like to see (although we are so far in debt it would be impossible.  The next generation will inherit $30 trillion in debt.  Impossible to escape.
  63. 2021 Saturday C: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS II– The People’s Republic of China is targeting various religious freedom folks such as Senator Joe Manchin’s wife, Gayle Connelly Manchin and other U.S. and Canadian religious freedom advocates bashing the Chi-Coms for their appalling human rights abuses.  We guess you know you’ve arrived when the Chi-Coms take a disliking to you.   Elsewhere, after firing a blitz of missiles into the oceans surrounding its country, the North Koreans blast the Biden regime for ‘making provocations.’   Meanwhile, local authorities are having a hell of a time budging the massive container ship blocking the Suez Canal.  Folks, offload that sucker and IMPLODE it like you would a building that needs to make way for a new one.  The insurance companies can reimburse the Japanese owners.  That’s all she wrote.  Finally, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson- BoJo- expresses his distaste of protesters attacking police in Great Britain.  It seems to be spreading like syphilis around the globe, disrespect for the cops.
  64. 2021 Saturday D: POLITICAL NEWS I- Upcoming U.S. wargames are expected to wage war against the Chi-Coms and the Russians.  Good to know.  Next, the Republicans are fighting the Joe Biden ‘infrastructure bill,’ the one that costs $3 trillion.   Moving on, Lara Trump says she will decide soon as to whether she will seek a U.S. Senate seat in her home state of North Carolina.   Meanwhile, down in the Peach State, the hubbub is underway, everyone wanting to boycott the state for having the balls to enact necessary voting reforms so Democrats like forever-angry Stacey Abrams cannot continue stealing them.  Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district says, ‘it’s about time.’   Elsewhere, the Maine GOP lacks the balls to censure Senator Susan Collins for her vote to convict President Donald J. Trump in the second impeachment farce.
  65. 2021 Saturday E: POLITICAL NEWS II– this was reported late last night (who didn’t see it coming?)- that the Biden administration via little Mayor Pete is considering slapping a mileage tax on Americans, charging them for every mile they drive.  We suspect they won’t charge BLACK drivers or illegal alien drivers but WHITE drivers, boy, are you chumps going to pay.  Of course, people will find ways to get around this as they always do which is why we think the Democrats should slap a NATIONAL SALES TAX on EVERY GOOD so that everyone will have ‘skin in the game.’  Poor people will pay it, illegal aliens will pay it (space aliens, too, if they buy anything), as will every one of every economic class.  Otherwise, the mileage tax is going to cause even more problems.  Why are these people so stupid?[vii]   In other news last night, we heard that New York City is removing qualified immunity from its law enforcement officers, becoming the first city in the United States to do so.  City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, DS 3rd district, says ‘qualified immunity is rooted in systemic racism.’  Bam!  Who didn’t see that one coming?   Noted legal scholar Alan Dershowitz says doing so is ‘an outrage.’  Finally, humorous note of the night- Congressman Mondaire Jones, D-NY 17th district, blasts the Biden White House for being hypocrites for firing White House staffers for past drug use.
  66. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– Famed college level and pro-football Coach Howard Schellenberger died at age 89.  Next, Lt. General Michael Flynn’s brother, John “Jack” Flynn is suing CNN for $75 million for defamation.  Elsewhere, tornadoes are roaring through parts of Alabama destroying property and claiming the lives of at least six people.  Dreadful, simply dreadful.   Finally, NBC’s Peacock streaming service is going to edit WWE broadcasts for some unknown reason.  Racism there, too?  What?
  67. 2021 Saturday G: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 124,683,860 confirmed cases, NO INFO, 2,742,357  confirmed deaths, NO INFO, and 70,731,505 confirmed recoveries, +2 (WTF?).  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,223,587 confirmed cases, up NO INFO from yesterday’s reporting, 550,726 confirmed deaths, NO INFO, (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS!) and 118,012,811 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.
  68. 2021 Saturday H: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE UNITED STATES- NO NEW NUMBERS (this wreaks of the pandemic being a SCAM).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  31. 1941 Sunday: Although the Battle of Britain would continue with the Luftwaffe raining hell down upon the people of England- standing alone against the Nazi menace- the German General Staff was busy preparing the invasion of the Soviet Union, Operation Barbarossa- set to begin in early May.  However, problems would arise in Yugoslavia as well as in Greece with the Italians struggling to subdue their foes there.  This sidestep would prove problematic for the crushing of the USSR.
  32. 1942 Monday: The first Japanese-Americans evacuated by the U.S. Army during World War II, arrived at the internment camp in Manzanar, California.  Meanwhile, in Lublin, Poland, the Nazis massacre and/or deport 2,500 Jewish citizens.

  34. 1944 Thursday: Russian pilot Nicolas Alkemade falls 5,500 feet without a parachute and lives.
  35. 1945 Friday: In the largest naval operation in the Pacific Theater in World War II, 1,500 U.S. Navy warships pound Japanese positions on the island of Okinawa.  Okinawa will become the bloodiest fight of the Pacific War as once it is subdued; the next stop will be mainland Japan.

  39. 1954 Tuesday: As the People’s Army continues trench construction drawing them closer and closer to the main French base at Dien Bien Phu as well as to the outlying ones such as Isabelle, the Dominque bases, the Huguettes, French warplanes are flying as many sorties as possible.  They are dropping napalm to expose the artillery and antiaircraft batteries as well as the troop concentration zones so as to disrupt them.  Otherwise, Colonel Christian De Castries fears the Viet Minh are going to draw so close as to starve the defenders out.  Airstrikes won’t be able to hit the communists without killing their allies.
  40. 1956 Friday: Pakistan became an Islamic republic on this date in history.

  46. 1980 Sunday: After Islamists overrunning Iran drive the Shah out of the country, the Shah and his family arrive in Egypt seeking exile status.
  47. 1981 Monday: The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) rules that states could require some sort of parental notification before teenage girls acquire abortions.

  49. 1990 Friday: Buena Vista Pictures released the romantic comedy “Pretty Woman,” starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, on this date.  It was a romantic romp in which a business tycoon fell in love with a hooker.  Rather modern-day fairy tale…

  51. 1994 Wednesday: Aeroflot Flight 593, an Airbus A310, crashed in Siberia with the loss of all 75 people aboard it; it turned out that the one of the pilots allowed his teenage son to sit at the controls accidentally disengaged the autopilot, causing the jetliner to plunge to the ground.  Elsewhere, the leading presidential candidate of Mexico dies in an assassination during a rally in Tijuana.  Finally, Wayne Gretzky broke Gordie Howe’s National Hockey League career record of with his 802nd goal.

  60. 2015 Monday: After combatting the effects of pneumonia for several weeks, Lee Kuan Yew—91-year-old founder of the nation of Singapore and its leader for 31 years—died.  Elsewhere, the Pentagon is busy alerting U.S. servicemembers who are on an ISIS hit list.  No one knows whether this jihadist scum possesses the ability to strike targets in America, but the U.S. military is not going to permit any harm to come to its people if it can stop such attacks.  
  61. 2016 Wednesday: Researchers using GPR imaging determine that the skull of William Shakespeare most likely has been stolen from his tomb at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford, United Kingdom.   Elsewhere, police in Brussels, Belgium, identify two of the attackers in the recent attacks on a subway station and an airport as a pair of homegrown jihadist brothers.  The search is on for a third man, the reputed ISIS bomber lurking somewhere within the country.  Track him down and KILL him.  Meanwhile, a U.S. airstrike on an al-Qaida camp in the lovely country of Yemen kills dozens of jihadists.
  62. 2017 Thursday: American singer and actress Lola Albright dies at age 92. Elsewhere, loony tunes Congressman Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, in an interview with equally insane ‘newsman’ Chuck Todd told his open-mouthed interviewer that ‘there is more than circumstantial evidence that associates of President Trump- if not the president himself!– colluded with Russian President Vladimir Putin to steal the 2016 Presidential Election from the highly popular Hillary Rodham Clinton (yeah, right.  In your dreams, congressman, in your dreams.  Moron).   However, Senator John McCain, RINO-AZ, says that ‘Congress lacks the credibility itself to investigate such charges.’  Yikes.
  63. 2018 Friday: President Donald J. Trump released an order banning most transgender troops from serving in the military except under “limited circumstances.”  Meanwhile, the online classified ads site Craigslist removed its personals section; the action came after the U.S. Senate passed an anti-sex-trafficking bill that could hold the website and others responsible for illegal activity.  Elsewhere in Sochi, Russia, in one of the largest transfers of desert sand ever, a sandstorm in the Sahara transforms the snow from white to orange. 
  64. 2019 Saturday: With the signing of Xi Jinping- Chinese dictator- and Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio, Italy signs onto China’s Belt and Road Initiative.  A year later, the Italian people are wondering why they are Ground Zero for China’s Wuhan Virus outbreak in Europe.   Meanwhile, with the raising of Syrian Democratic Forces flag over the Syrian city of Baghuz, civilized people proclaim the vanquishing of the ISIS caliphate.  The terrorist scum had held the area for five bloody years. 
  65. 2020 Monday: Due to illness and self-quarantine, the Republican-controlled Senate is not in control with only 48 members present.  The Democrats under Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, at the behest of Speaker Nancy Pelosi will NOT pass a bill designed to protect the country’s economy while providing support to the afflicted unless Republicans sign on to more Obamacare-like government-run medical claptrap as well as all manner of identity politics desires, Green New Deal insanity, increased protections for illegal aliens, and additional Pro-Death protections.  As of the time of this publishing, the GOP was still holding out, hoping the Dems would regain their senses and stop with the insanity but oh, no, they simply won’t surrender their partisan politics.  COVID-19 statistics: earlier in the day, there were 354,677 known cases of the Chinese Virus what with the number of infections up in previous 24 hours standing at 21,115; total known deaths are 15,430, up 940 in 24 hours.  In the United States, total known cases are 35,345 what with 473 deaths, up by 56 in past 24 hours.  This does not account for the stats for the second part of the day.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: YESTERDAY’S NEWS CATCHUP- Dare we say this but the name of the individual who shot up the King Sooper Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, goes by the name of Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa.  Allah Akbar, anyone?  Meanwhile, Robert Aaron Long, the perp who carried out the Atlanta Massage Parlors Massacre found himself in court charged with ‘malice murder’ and ‘aggravated assault.’  The poor bastard was trying to conquer a sex addiction, something he will be unable to conquer in prison as everyone knows what goes on in there.  Sad.  Elsewhere, in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, after seating 2 alternate jurors yesterday giving the trial a full 12 plus the two, seated a 15th today in case one of the other ones drops or is forced out for some as yet unanticipated reason. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki could not answer a reporter’s question as to WHY illegal alien mobs receive better treatment than do National Guard members protecting Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.  National Guard members have had to sleep in frigid parking garages and have been served undercooked, raw, or poor-quality food while illegals are pampered like Roman emperors.  Something is NOT right here.
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II- Regarding the border mess, the Biden administration continues trying to deflect blame for the ongoing disaster onto President Donald J. Trump’s back.  Not working very well seeing as how President Trump handed Joe Biden a secure border.   Regarding the Biden Border Catastrophe, 40-percent in a recent poll blame Joe Biden 100-percent for the border catastrophe while 27-percent (the uneducated) blame President Donald J. Trump.  Another 12-percent blame Congress.  What everyone agrees on is the border must be secured NOW.  Speaking of the CRISIS, “Kooky Kamala” Harris says her administration received a f-up border from the previous administration and when asked if she was going to visit the border anytime soon, laughed it off.[iii] 
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III-  the Republicans are dangling the bait of amnesty for DACA recipients, i.e., the much-beloved DREAMers (yeah, right- deport all of them NOW) in exchange for the Democrats agreeing to fix the broken farmworker visa system.  You know, we used to have the Bracero Program which allowed temporary workers to cross to and from the southern border to work in the United States and then to return home after the season ended.  What is so frigging difficult about this?  Just fix it and stop the tidal wave of illegals rampaging through our country.  Enough already!  Meanwhile, we learn that only 13-percent of family units crossing the southern border are turned back into Mexico.  Wow.
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: LAW ENFORCEMENT/LEGAL NEWS- Attorney Sidney Powell files a motion to dismiss suit in court to have the bogus lawsuit filed by the (allegedly) corrupt Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  These scumbags filed a frivolous lawsuit against all those who pointed out the fact that Dominion coupled with Hugo Chavez’s Smartmatic software STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election and threw it to decrepit old Joe Biden.   In other news, Regent University hosted a lengthy symposium on how the election fraud in 2020 occurred what with Michelle Bachman and Peter Navarro providing reams of evidence showing the crime committed before our eyes.  Elsewhere, the Massachusetts attorney general seeks to vacate thousands of drug convictions that were handed out using lab ‘evidence’ with which law enforcement tampered so as to achieve convictions.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. POLITICAL NEWS-  Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district announced today that he is running to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Senator Richard Shelby.  Good luck, Mo!  Meanwhile, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, blasts the Biden tax plan as being little more than a wealth redistribution scheme.  Elsewhere, by a vote of 68-29, the U.S. Senate confirms the nomination of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh to become the next U.S. Secretary of the Labor Department.  From what we hear, the guy is a labor hack.  In other news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district says that ‘efforts to expel me will fail.’  Next, Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, says she won’t confirm anymore WHITE nominees sent to the U.S. Senate by the Biden administration until some Asian-Americans begin getting nominated for high posts- like what?  Ambassador to Micronesia?  Finally, Joe Biden says we can ban assault weapons.  Go for it.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS I-  Economist Steve Moore pointed out today how the $1,400 stimulus checks sent to, uh, not just American taxpayers but to felons in prison, illegal aliens, and even savvy foreigners could end up costing $11,000 each.  Not good.  Meanwhile, U.S. corporations are urging elected Democrats to push through the DREAMER bill so as to get all this cheap labor employed while American workers are left without.   However, corporations may not get the last laugh as U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is promising to boost the U.S. corporate tax rate back to where it was- if not higher- than before President Donald J. Trump was in office.  Corporate heads, DON’T you wish you had supported the 45th president when you had the opportunity?   
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS II- In other PANDERING NEWS, the city of Evanston, Illinois, becomes the first city in the United States to provide reparations to black Americans.  Wait, isn’t Evanston a NORTHERN CITY where slavery did not exist?  WTF is up with that?  (Note- NO longer can Democrats in Evanston use ‘slavery’ as a club to bash the heads of their political enemies.  NEVER).  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s economic advisers are warning fellow Democrats to prepare for an additional $3 trillion in spending, much of which will go into HIGH-SPEED RAIL?  WTF?  This has never worked in the United States nor will it.  Next, Microsoft is in talks to buy instant messaging app, Discord.   Finally, Regal Cinemas plans a grand reopening across the country beginning on April 02, 2021.
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: FOREIGN AND OVERSEAS NEWS I- Following a complaint, the Federal Communications Commission- the FTC- is looking into allegations that two communist Chinese telecommunications companies, China Central Television and CGTN, for inserting propaganda into its broadcasts as well as showing coerced confessions by prisoners who have been mistreated.   Meanwhile, Russian officials say that Joe Biden has repeatedly rejected any open talks with Moscow so that mutual problems can be addressed, and grievances aired.  That’s Joe for you.  Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s going to address a virtual summit of European leaders this upcoming Thursday just as he is supposed to address the American people via a press conference.  (Note- we expect neither will occur or if they do, they will come off as Max Headroom with multiple takes, Deep Fakes, and hidden earpieces.  What a country).  Moving on, Dems are pressuring Joe Biden to ease sanctions on communist Venezuela.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia is proposing a ceasefire with the Houthi rebels.  Finally, Israeli voters are taking another shot at Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 123,924,888 confirmed cases, +408,189, 2,727,640 (down from yesterday’s figure), confirmed deaths, +7,937, and 70,320,511 confirmed recoveries, +344,632.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,104,069 confirmed cases, up 49,466 from yesterday’s reporting, 548,613 confirmed deaths, UP 442, and 117,037,711 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. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,146 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Centers for Disease Control are hammering AstraZeneca for using outdated data in their correlation of vaccine results.  Say it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, a new study suggests that low-dose aspirin can ward off the coronavirus.  Elsewhere, Pfizer is developing a pill with which to ward off the ‘VID.  (In other healthcare news, Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AK, has signed a new antiabortion law into being, one that will challenge Roe v. Wade in the courts).   (Other News II- the teachers’ unions are pushing back on the CDC’s recommendations for social distancing: six feet or no teach).
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,646,171 confirmed cases, 57,799 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,912 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 358,762 confirmed cases, 5,232 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the Northern Marianas: currently, they have 158 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,764 confirmed cases, 6,109 confirmed deaths, and 807,653 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Philippines, home of Ferdinand and Imelda Marcos (and her legendary shoe collection): 677,653 cases of the virus, 12,992 confirmed deaths and 578,461 confirmed recoveries.  
  78. 2021 Tuesday L:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,423.15, DOWN 308.05 points (-0.94%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,227.70, DOWN 149.84 points (-1.12%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,910.52, DOWN 30.07 points (-0.76%).  The price of GOLD is $1,726.20 per troy oz., +1.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.11 per troy ounce, -0.14 (-0.54%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,169.60 per troy oz, -5.00 (-0.43%) while the price of COPPER is $4.03 per pound, -0.05 (-1.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,605.00 per troy oz, -24.00 (-0.91%). The price of RHODIUM is $29,200.00 per troy oz.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $57.42 per barrel, -0.34 (-0.59%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.79.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Bangladeshi taka, one greenback equals 84.37.  
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.612 in Hawaii, and $3.320 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,085,852,256,420 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness.  IF the Chinese are going to become the masters of the world, well, what can we do except to join the band.
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: UNIDENTIFIED FLYING (AND SUBMERSIBLE) OBJECT NEWS- It would appear that the American people will soon learn the truth about UFOs although whether anyone will go the distance and inform us that the persons operating these crafts are not of this world is unclear.  Louis Elizondo was on Fox News this morning discussing the phenomena that has vexed millions around the world since the Roswell crash in New Mexico shortly after the end of World War II.  Elizondo provides three explanations as to the origins of these craft.  First, that they are BLACK OPERATIONS vehicles that only certain governmental organizations are aware of while the second is that the technology could be that of our enemies.  The third is that they come from somewhere else although no one wants to definitively state they come from somewhere NOT of this Earth such as interdimensional or interplanetary or interstellar origins.  To be a UFO, there must be at least one of five observable characteristics such as (1) the ability to accelerate almost instantaneously (2) hypersonic speeds (3) low observability (4) the ability to operate on various planes such as air to water, water to air, and whatever else observers might see and (5) the ability to move sans any form of wings, engine exhausts, and other characteristics associated with earthly flight.
  81. 2021 Tuesday O: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS II- North Korea sent a message to Joe Biden today in which, Kim Jong Un- the Great Leader II- fired off a barrage of short-range missiles into the sea this past weekend as a message to the White House that the Democratic Republic of North Korea does not like Joe Biden firing up the U.S.-South Korean military exercises.  Today, the Department of Defense said that ‘North Korea threatens the entire region.’  Wow.  We don’t think Chairman Kim likes Joe Biden very much.  It will be interesting to see what comes of this.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration still won’t say that labeling Vladimir Putin a ‘killer’ was the wrong thing to do.  Elsewhere, China lashes out at U.S. allies in a bid to thwart the agenda of “Joe Biden.”  The People’s Republic of China began slapping reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for the pressure the ‘Biden administration’ and the EU are slapping onto Beijing for mistreating the citizens of Hong Kong, Tibet, and Uighur Muslims.  China says these are internal issues like mistreatment of minorities in the U.S. is an American internal issue.  Joe- the AICPENDBLOG.COM recommends YOU don’t start something with the PRC you can’t finish or win.
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: Stick around for the results of the Mega Millions Draw #1644 tonight what with a $122 million pot on the line for some lucky winner(s).  Here are the numbers: 12, 23, 35, 38, 55, and Mega 11.  Out of 80,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,340 apiece.
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS FOREIGN/OVERSEAS III- We overlooked this story this morning but in a Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh, a massive fire broke out killing 560 people outright, thousands more injured, and causing the disappearances of another 400.  The U.N. says that 45,000 people have been displaced.   The Bangladeshis have given shelter to more than 1 million of their fellow Muslims whom the anti-Muslim government in neighboring Burma drove out back in 2017 via a concerted effort to kill all of them.  Next, even though Saudi Arabia proposed a ceasefire with the Houthi rebel scum in Yemen, the Houthis conducted an attack on Abha International Airport with a drone loaded up with explosives.   Had the ceasefire gone into effect, it would have permitted the reopening of the Sana’a airport in Yemen so that relief supplies could flow into the starving, impoverished civilians in the country.  Instead, we think the Saudis had better raze all Houthi-controlled areas. 
  84. 2021 Tuesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS NATIONAL:  A 14th woman filed a lawsuit against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson accusing him of exposing himself and performing lewd acts on them.  The quarterback denies all allegations and investigation is ensuing.  Unlike Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, we believe that Watson is facing false accusations and we will wait to see where the evidence takes us.   Elsewhere, the ‘Biden administration’ announces all official documents will bear the moniker ‘Biden-Harris Administration.’  Speaking of old Joe, he says he is going to take America’s guns away since a crazed Syrian refugee POS shot up the Boulder, Colorado, grocery store killing 10 people, all of whom were WHITE.  No one seems to be shedding tears for them but oh, those poor Asian hookers- uh, excuse me, masseuses- in Atlanta, which is an entirely different story.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, says ‘making Washington, D.C. a state is a matter of racial equity seeing as how there are loads of black folks living there.’
  85. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Band is an archivist’s release featuring the group live at one of the all-time celebrated great shows following Woodstock.  “Live at Watkins Glen” came out on April 04, 1995, and features the Band’s performance at the famous site.  This concert for those who may not know featured a top bill of not only the Band but also the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers Band so folks, it was one long trip to be remembered or lost in the fog.  All three groups were in their peak eras although the Dead and the ABB would continue for decades to come so why not listen to this legendary set?  Both the Band and the Dead appeared at the Woodstock Music and Arts Fair of 1969 whereas the ABB did not.  One can only ponder why.  Ah, well, seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you did, of that, we are positive.

62. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 03, 2022, UPDATE A

What’s going on between the West and Russia is not something that had to happen. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the birth of modern Russia, the West could have incorporated them rather than dismissed them as a failed state. In so doing, instead of democracy, they got Putin, and not listening to his repeated ‘security assurances’ put us to where we now are- on the precipice of World War III

What’s going on between the West and Russia is not something that had to happen.  Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the birth of modern Russia, the West could have incorporated them rather than dismissed them as a failed state.  In so doing, instead of democracy, they got Putin, and not listening to his repeated ‘security assurances’ put us to where we now are- on the precipice of World War III
