  75. 2020 Sunday: While it would be great to inform the world that the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis had vanished, sadly, it has not nor have Blue State governors desire to keep everyone in lockdown mode.  Thankfully, people are standing up and disobeying these totalitarians and with ever-warmer weather coming, people will no longer allow political losers to cage them, willingly; we will fight back.  Here are the global stats for the day: 5,400,604 confirmed cases, 344,760 confirmed deaths, and 2,175,682 confirmed recoveries, the last number of which is amazing- nit gives us hope.

  83. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 63 of ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ reign and she is nowhere to be seen.  News reports suggest that she is applying pressure to Guatemala to do something to halt the flow of illegal aliens pouring out of Honduras and El Salvador like vermin out of a sewer.  Does “Kooky Kamala” carry any weight?  We doubt it.   Elsewhere, the Biden regime has dropped a plan in which it would hold “tender age” illegal aliens at U.S. military bases.  (Note- how about holding them at Gitmo, there Joe?  We do not want more illegal aliens pouring into the country, you feeble old f**k)
  84. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Chi-Coms are warning BOTH the United States and South Korea to butt out when it comes to Taiwan, the REAL China, the FREE China.  The Chi-Coms appear determined to isolate and then conquer the freedom-loving Taiwanese which means that if Beijing launches an all-out assault, feeble Joe Biden will still be down in the basement of the White House spanking his wank.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com stooge Russia is accusing the United States of violating the New Start Treaty’s limitation on nukes.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is off to the Middle East to try to keep the ceasefire between Israel and the Untermensch in the Gaza Strip on track as well as to secure aid for said Untermensch.  Such is the Biden regime’s priorities.
  85. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Formerly referred to as the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci because in the eyes of liberals, he could do no wrong but now referred to by the AICPENDBLOG.COM as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, the ever-incorrect doctor now says ‘you know, there could be some funny business going on in Wuhan what with gain of function experimentation’ or so many words to that effect.  That tells us that once again, “Phony Tony” spit on his finger, held it up, and determined which way the wind was blowing.  By the end of the week, he will flipflop in another direction.  Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating as to whether monkey business was indeed going on within the Wuhan Institute of Virology.   
  86. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information II– In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu, Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, has been blasted over disobeying her own rules by going to the Land Shark Bar, pushing two tables together so that she and another 8-9 friends could sit around the same table together.  In Michigan, ONLY six people can sit at the same table unless, of course, you are some loser like “Gravel Gertie.”  Remove this B**CH from office NOW.  Elsewhere, the U.S. government is warning U.S. citizens not to travel to Japan due to rising Chi-Vi numbers there which sows more doubt on the long-delayed Summer Olympics.   Next, the Ohio GOP is blasting Governor Mike DeWine, RINO, over his ‘vaccine lotto’ which they call a ‘gross misuse of Ohioans tax dollars.’   Finally, Rep.  Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ 2nd congressional district, says that ‘something is wrong in Wuhan’ and that we must get to the bottom of it.  (Note- the Chi-Coms are waging asymmetrical warfare on us via hacking, pandemics, monetary devaluations, and business acquirement which is why we must eliminate these scumbags as a global power).
  87. 2021 Monday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Arizona state Representative Mark Finchem, R-11 District, says that the Democrats are TERRIFIED at what the 2020 Election Audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, is going to turn up.  We hope it is the beginning of the end for the Biden debacle. 
  88. 2021 Monday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, has launched a new legal strategy with which to do battle with the Biden regime.  Next, the GOP is slamming the Biden regime’s plan of hiring a new army of IRS agents with which to terrorize the American people and to shake every nickel out of their pockets so as to fund the multi-trillion ‘plans’ the regime floats one after another.  (Note- like the Ancient Romans, we suspect the Bidenistas will proscribe (i.e., outlaw) political enemies so the regime can then seize their assets via civil forfeiture.  This is what dictators do).  Meanwhile, the Biden regime is trying to pressure GOP lawmakers into giving in on their ‘infrastructure bill.’  Screw “Pro-China Joe.”   In other news, 500 former Biden campaign employees signed a letter to the usurper in the White House demanding he stand up for Palestine and screw Israel.  (Note- these group-signed letters are little more than propaganda bulls**t.  Pay no attention to them).
  89. 2021 Monday L: Miscellaneous News I– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed a bill into law that will permit citizens of the Sunshine State to sue BIG TECH over de-platforming issues.  Excellent.  Let’s go after Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other scumbag ‘social media’ entities.  Elsewhere, leftists are pushing ahead with their ‘Retire Breyer’ campaign to remove U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer- a reliable liberal vote- so they can get a bunch of rabid, frothing-at-the-mouth liberals onto the high court.  As you know, Justice Breyer opposes PACKING THE COURTS.  Meanwhile, a top MAGA Ohio senatorial candidate Jane Timken, RINO, most likely will not get support from President Donald J. Trump over her failure to condemn a RINO GOPPER in her state who voted to impeach President Trump.  Good.  Boot the RINOs into the nearest dumpster. 
  90. 2021 Monday M: Miscellaneous News II– A new study suggests that the numbers of great white sharks along the northern California coastline is going way up.  “Jaws,” anyone?  Stay out of the water.   Meanwhile, new reports suggest that the top police officer on the scene at the death of black man Ronald Greene down in New Orleans back on May 10, 2019- Lt. John Clary- withheld video of the incident suggesting coverup.  (Note- be prepared for a new round of Black Lives Matter riots).  In other news, Greg Kelly of Newsmax reports that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka the FLY, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, said to “Latino USA” podcast that she is in therapy over the events of January 06, 2021.  (Note- if we had been on Capitol Hill that day and near this skank, we would have thrown her to the wolves.  Remember- she LIED to the world and said she heard them outside her office looking for HER.  Enough with the theatrics, you dumb, ignorant c**t).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Although the Beach Boys were on the decline, the next album, “Wild Honey,” came out on December 18, 1967, and is one we absolutely love and wholeheartedly recommend.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass) as it was all hands-on deck.  The album features nothing but quality material beginning with the upbeat, “Wild Honey,” to the captivating “Aren’t You Glad,” to a cover of Stevie Wonder’s, “I Was Made to Love Her,” to the live classic, “Darlin’,” to the playful, “I’d Love Once Just to See You.” Also on the album is a raucous “Here Comes the Night” to yet another long-time live classic, “Let the Wind Blow.”  The other songs on the album are not filler but all quality material.  The Beach Boys were growing beards, sporting longer hair, and wearing modern-day clothing like the rest of the wild and crazy acts of the late 1960s.  We hope you will seek this one out and definitely make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  You will love it.

  66. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,221 confirmed cases, 6,395 confirmed deaths, and 832,232 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Cuba, a communist hellhole that liberal Americans for some unexplainable reason seem to worship and love: 128,094 cases of the virus, 834 confirmed deaths and 120,282 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  67. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,896.04, DOWN 164.62 points (-0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,299.74, DOWN 3.90 points (-0.029%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,115.68, DOWN 12.15 points (-0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.38 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.20 per troy oz., -12.60 (-0.65%) while the price of SILVER is $27.79 per troy ounce, -0.23 (-0.84%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,194.50 per troy oz, -7.10 (-0.59%) while the price of COPPER is $4.59 per pound, -0.00 (-0.04%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,869.29 per troy oz, -33.59 (-1.16%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.70%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.94.     In Venezuelan Bolivar, one greenback equals 248,487.64 (that’s socialism for you) and in Vietnamese Dong, a buck equals 23,045.00 and in West African CFA Franc, one dollar equals 532.50 of theirs.[xv]     
  68. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.144 per gallon, $2.887 in Florida, $3.886 in Hawaii, and $3.547 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.877.  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- Kyrgyzstan: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,305,687,729,011 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  
  69. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– today is the 58th day in which the appointed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has FAILED to visit the southern border.  What’s up with that?   Speaking of the border calamity, One America News reports today’s stats regarding JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- as of today, the cost of caring for illegal aliens is $519,152,882.  The number of illegals that have crossed into the United States this year alone sits at 1,555,337 invaders whom the Biden regime is dumping across the United States.  One America News reports the number of illegals in the United States is around 35,555,336 which is incredible, but we have long said that the numbers of illegal alien invaders is between 35-50 million which is not flipping good.  Round ‘em up and begin deporting them.  NOW.  Apparently, along with the more than a million who have flooded into the United States this year, the Biden regime is going to allow in an additional 260 ‘vulnerable illegal aliens,’ i.e., gays, trannys, and other victimized groups, into the U.S. every day where the taxpayers will pay their way.
  70. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Colombian leaders confirm the death of prominent FARC leader Jesus Santrich- killed in Venezuela.  Venezuelan dictator (and former bus driver) Nicolas Maduro says he knows nothing about it.   In other overseas-related news, U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi calls for a ‘diplomatic boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.’  What is wrong, Mumbles?  Chi-Coms not dumping enough cash in your bank accounts. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– After Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrat election officials did their best to delete as much data related to the 2020 Elections, election auditors have announced they have recovered the deleted databases. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday I: Joe Biden News– A mushed-mouth Joe Biden spoke to U.S. Coast Guard grads and after telling them that ‘COVID-19 has prepared you to meet any challenge,’ he lit them up for not being overly enthusiastic about his incredibly low-key, incoherent speech and called them ‘dull,’ forcing them to applaud his stumbling, bumbling speech.  It was incredibly embarrassing to be sure.   Meanwhile, when a news reporter asked Joe Biden about “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ attack on him during the primary debates of last year over his record on busing, the slow-witted moron who resides in the White House said of her comments that her comments were ‘f**king bulls**t.”  (Note- increasing belligerence and anger is yet another sign of mental decline).
  73. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I- the regime announces it is going to release 3 terrorists languishing in Gitmo.  (Note- why not try the SOBs and then execute them?).  Next, the regime slanders the impressive, peace-bringing Abraham Accords, basically labeling them as fecal matter.  Wow.  Next, the regime is offering little support to Israel.  It would appear that she will have to fight on in solitude against Hamas and Hezbollah trash seeking to destroy her.  Moving on, Joe Biden’s court-packing commission is meeting soon with answers as to how the Democrats can continue trashing the federal court system.  (Note- a McLaughlin poll says that 64-percent of Americans believe Joe Biden won’t be running in 2024 and that President Donald J. Trump will decimate “Kooky Kamala” Harris should this quack somehow become the Democratic Party’s sacrificial 2024 lamb).
  74. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The BIG Joe Biden regime news of the day is that the regime is lifting all sanctions on the Nord Stream 2 pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany.  This will bring cheap Russian natural gas to Europe.  What could be wrong with that?  Well, it provides the Putin regime loads of high-paying jobs while increasing his regime’s power and reach across all non-Russia Europe, something President Donald J. Trump fought against, and which Joe Biden has now overturned- and they claim the 45th president was a stooge of the Russians for four long years.  Wow.  What could be wrong with the Russians supplying the main source of energy to Europe?  Why have NATO?  Add to that Joe Biden shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline on Day 1 and the Colonial Pipeline suffering a Russian hacking attack.  Again, WTF?  Yet, all we hear are crickets…
  75. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– The GOP is expected to release their ‘counteroffer’ to Joe Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar 2022 Budget soon.  We await it with bated breath.  Next, Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-FL 12th congressional district, ripped Health and Human Services Secretary (and California’s shame) Xavier Becerra a new one over the secretary’s stance on ‘partial birth abortion.’  Secretary Becerra sidestepped ‘partial birth abortion’ by mumbling about no actual law prohibiting the barbaric practice.  Ah, one must love the Pro-Death Movement.  Meanwhile, Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO-GA, says he is running for re-election in 2022.  Loser.  Elsewhere, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom released his 2019 tax returns.  Big whoop.
  76. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, seeks to codify into law what President Donald J. Trump sought to do back in 2017 and that is to keep U.S. soldiers, sailors, Marines, airmen-and-women, Coast Guard, and other military retirement funds out of communist China.  Back in 2017, the 45th president discovered that the five-member panel that manages military personnel retirement funds were going to invest the money in Chi-Com companies which means that money ALWAYS manages to find its way into Chi-Com military corporations.  That is insane, as insane as allowing the Chinese Communist Party to manufacture the pharmaceuticals the American people rely upon to protect their health.  We hope you succeed in this valiant effort, Senator Tuberville.
  77. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News III– The U.S. Department of Justice is creating a task force to combat Chi-Vi fraud in the United States and around the world wherever it may be connected to the U.S.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is encouraging lawmakers to vote against the proposed 01-06-2021 Capitol Hill Riots, aka the largest false flag operation in the history of American politics, ‘commission’ to investigate the events surrounding that day.  The Democrats do not want to investigate Antifa, Black Lives Matter, or any other domestic terrorist group, just the events of January 06, 2021, which means they want to investigate President Trump yet again, hoping against hope, they can somehow tar and feather him as some sort of Osama bin Laden.  Later in the day, the House voted to establish the commission with 35 Republicans[xix] joining the Democrats.   Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, hoped that Republicans would not vote ‘aye’ on this garbage and yet they did.  Sad, extremely sad.
  78. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News IV– A U.S. Army chaplain found himself reprimanded for being critical of the NEW U.S. Army’s ‘tranny policy.’  This occurred back on May 12 when Chaplain Major Andrew Calvert commented on his personal social media page where he expressed his religious views and mentioned his support for the ban on trannys serving in the U.S. military.  Once again, a conservative thinker is smacked down for sharing his or her personal views.  What a load of crap.   Next, despite what Pope Francis has ordered, U.S. bishops are going to begin debating Joe Biden receiving/not receiving communion over his Pro-Death policies.  We hope they excommunicate the old bastard.   He certainly is NO Catholic.  Elsewhere, ultra-left, Soros-funded hack Attorney General Leticia James says that investigation into President Donald J. Trump is now a ‘criminal matter.’[xx]  Soros’ ankle-biting dog strikes again.  Finally, attorney Mark McCloskey, R-MO, announced that he is running for U.S. Senate in Rush Limbaugh’s home state.
  79. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News V– In the city controlled by Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot, DS-Chicago, so far this year there have been 1,200 shootings.  Oh- she also will no longer permit white people to interview her.  Racist?  Of course, but Democrats claim it’s somehow not.  Go figure.  In the Keystone State, businessman Lou Barletta is running to replace the POS they have for governor now, the extremely corrupt Tom Wolf.  We hope he clobbers him.  Elsewhere, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, is pressing the Joe Biden regime over its use of encrypted communications so as to avoid any type of oversight.  This is akin to Hillary Rodham Clinton having a private server next door to her basement crapper.  Can you imagine what would be said if President Donald J. Trump was the one committing this highly questionable act?  Ye gods, don’t even want to think about it.
  80. 2021 Wednesday Q: Miscellaneous News I– A medical panel recommends colon cancer screenings beginning at age 45.  Next, Southern Command plans to double its emerging tech areas budget in 2022.  Next, Yosemite National Park is going to require reservations through September so as not to overcrowd America’s most popular national park.  Elsewhere, Lollapalooza Music Festival returns in Chicago on June 29.  Elsewhere, Lamborghini projects a fully electric car by 2030.
  81. 2021 Wednesday R: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3561 with a $47 million jackpot on the line.  Next, we have the Powerball Draw #847 with a $201 million jackpot on the line for some lucky soul(s).   First, here are the results for the Super Lotto draw tonight- 04, 16, 18, 32, 44, and Mega 20.  Out of 125,265 winning tickets, the highest winners are THREE people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $15,174 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Christy’s Donut in Los Angeles, CA 90062; (2) Safeway Fuel in South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150 (they hit on May 08, 2021, too); and (3) Love’s Travel Stop in Westmorland, CA 92281.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball: 11, 13, 55, 56, 69, and Powerball 04.   Out of 83,446 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $14,910 apiece.
  82. 2022 Thursday: We are behind, yes, we know that…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys was filler of sorts what with it being an album of covers done with acoustic instruments and vocals.  “Beach Boys Party” came out on November 08, 1965 and was received well even though the times they were a-changing all-right.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Brian Wilson had by this time suffered his first mental breakdown due to the constant stress of being forced by his family members to write hit songs and commercial albums as well as nonstop touring and friction with his abusive father Murray.  He also was experimenting with the popular drugs of the time so he could raise the level of his songwriting which was to come.  Great album for an increasingly contentious time in the history of the world which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.

[i] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this famed, “Little Ol’ Band from Texas,” ZZ Top sometime in the next decade.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will be promoting the music of Curved Air but when we do, you will be among the first to know.

[iv] We are not sure when AC/DC will be in the works, but you bet they will be at some point, possibly in 2027-2028.

[v] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds, but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Village People in the not-too-distant future.  Don’t want anyone calling us homophobic. 

[vii] Not sure when we will do the music of Freddie and the Dreamers but one day, we most certainly will so continue reading our political site until we do.

2021 Tuesday: Joe Biden Regime News I- In yet another massive giveaway of U.S. taxpayer dollars, Joe Biden’s new ‘child tax credit’ will begin dumping billions of dollars into the pockets of American parents- including ILLEGAL ALIEN parents- beginning on July 15. Wow.

  17. 1904 Wednesday: A Muslim criminal, Mulai Ahmed er Raisuli, the leader of a band of anti-government extremists, kidnaps an American citizen.  This event would later be portrayed in the movie, “The Wind and the Lion,” (United Artists 1975) starring Sean Connery as the loveable erstwhile jihadist and Candice Bergen as the kidnapped American.

Justin Amash, RINO-MI 3rd congressional district, becomes the first ‘Republican’ to announce he is in favor of impeaching President Donald J. Trump. 
  59. 2020 Monday: President Donald J. Trump ‘shocks’ his enemies, uh, the Fake News Media, when he informs them that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine along with zinc- and possibly another medication- as a prophylactic against communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ COVID-19.  Shortly afterwards, Fox News Channel host, Neil Cavuto goes berserk on his program, yelling, “IT CAN KILL YOU!” He then tries to coerce open-minded guests into condemning Trump, too, but they won’t which says much about them.  Here are our stats for the day regarding the Wuhan Virus: Global Cases: 4,801,282 number of confirmed cases, 318,464 number of confirmed deaths, but 1,786,829 number of confirmed recoveries which is excellent.   In the United States, we have 1,537,830 number of confirmed cases, 90,964 number of confirmed deaths, but 288,842 number of confirmed recoveries. 
  60. 2020 Monday A: In the three states in which the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, the NEW AICPENDBLOG.COM, has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, California first: 78.839 number of confirmed cases, 3,261 number of confirmed deaths, but NO number of confirmed recoveries thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom playing politics- the slime.  Next, Hawaii has 640 number of confirmed cases, 17 number of confirmed deaths, but 573 number of confirmed recoveries which is amazing- thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, we have 18,611 number of confirmed cases, 1,002 number of confirmed deaths, but 0 number of confirmed recoveries.  Some states are not even providing the world with daily updates which is incorrect, too.  This seems to be the way things are going to be.  Communist China lies, Blue State governors and mayors lie, which should inform everyone of sound mind and healthy body that the Wuhan Flu is being used for POLITICAL PURPOSES.  Remain alert, especially for legitimate figures out of Beijing because what they report is simply not the truth.
  61. : COVID-19 Statistics for the planet as a whole: 164,870,330 confirmed cases, +598,180, 3,417,628  confirmed deaths, +13,406 and 145,007,613 confirmed recoveries, +84,172.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,773,385 confirmed cases, UP 25,946 from yesterday’s reporting, 601,301 confirmed deaths, UP 704,[v] and 27,247,206 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,345.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]   
  62. : Note: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 284,987 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 174,622 deaths.     
  63. : 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: 3,770,980 confirmed cases, 62,720 confirmed deaths, and 2,013,858 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,296,785 confirmed cases, 36,236 confirmed deaths, and 1,897,257 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,889 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 425,771 confirmed cases, 5,696 confirmed deaths, and 205,439 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Diamond Princess Ship: they have 46 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 46 confirmed recoveries.[vii]    One America News reported today that recent reports suggest that thousands who have received both does of the Chi-Vi vaccine have tested positive for the lab-created disease while dozens more have succumbed following the second injection.  The question is WHY?  Very few in the news media are seeking proper answers to this perplexing question.   Speaking of this ‘vaccine,’ Joe Biden is going to send millions more doses of the vaccine overseas.  Our bets are on many of them going to Gaza Strip and to Iran.  We will see.
  64. : Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,167 confirmed cases, 6,392 confirmed deaths, and 832,144 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Latvia, a former ally of the Nazis during World War II: 128,688 cases of the virus, 2,280 confirmed deaths and 117,799 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  65. : Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,060.66, DOWN 267.13 points (-0.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,303.64, DOWN 75.41 points (-0.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,127.83, DOWN 35.46 points (-0.85%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.11 per barrel, -0.38 (-0.58%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.20 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $28.22 per troy ounce, -0.11 (-0.40%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,219.90 per troy oz, -5.40 (-0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $4.71 per pound, -0.02 (-0.37%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,906.79 per troy oz, +0.68 (+0.02%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.70%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.84.     In Uruguay Peso, one greenback equals 44.18 and in Uzbekistani Som, a buck equals 10,572.00 and in Vanuatu Vatu, one dollar equals 105.87 of theirs.[xii]     
  66. : 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 $4.135 per gallon, $2.889 in Florida, $3.873 in Hawaii, and $3.543 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Vermont: $2.941.  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- Haiti: $2.256 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,302,127,496,812 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.
  67. 2021 Tuesday: Joe Biden Regime News I– In yet another massive giveaway of U.S. taxpayer dollars, Joe Biden’s new ‘child tax credit’ will begin dumping billions of dollars into the pockets of American parents- including ILLEGAL ALIEN parents- beginning on July 15.  Wow.   Speaking of Joe Biden and billions of dollars, the enfeebled old faux president is calling for dumping billions more into ‘cybersecurity’ following the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline and the paying of 4-5 million dollars in ransom.  In other despicable news, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says the ‘Abraham Accords are dead on arrival.’  WTF?  Those were the best Middle East peace deals in generations, ones that reconciled Arabs around the world with Israel.  We know where Joe Biden’s loyalties lie.   Elsewhere, the ongoing violence between Israel and the barbarians in Gaza overshadows the ‘domestic agenda’ of the Biden regime.   Finally, the Biden regime is seeking to confiscate the phone records of journalists as they try to find who is behind numerous leaks.  Of course, they say they are following in the footsteps of the 45th president’s administration but we simply do not believe that.  Democrats are totalitarians and totalitarians are Democrats.  Period.  
  68. 2021 Tuesday: Political News I– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, does not support the Democrats demand to create a ‘bi-partisan commission to delve into the origins of the FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021, the Capitol Hill Riots, aka the ‘Insurrection’ led by Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators who stormed the Capitol and who terrorized lawmakers.   We think it’s a political witch hunt.   Regarding Rep. McCarthy, that loser Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, says that ‘IF the GOP retakes the House, she won’t vote for Leader McCarthy to become the next speaker of the House.’  Oooh, we bet Rep. McCarthy is trembling in his boots.  (Note- Liz, just join the Democratic-Socialists, which is precisely what YOU are).  Finally, in New York, Andrew Giuliani has thrown his hat into the race for governor of the Empire State.  Awesome.
  69. 2021 Tuesday: Political News II– The Portland Oregonian reports that 53-percent of polled Portlanders NO longer feel safe in their city or that they want to continue living there due to all the Antifa and BLM riots that seemingly go on around the clock 24/7/365.  Who can blame them?  Next, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom claims that the ‘surplus’ the Golden State has is $38 billion larger than it truly is.  (Note- you know the Democrats have suckled at the teats of the taxpayers so look into their bank accounts).  Moving on, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says the Lone Star State is going to refuse federal enhanced unemployment monies.  It is time for citizens to return to work.  The governor of Texas also is banning ALL mask mandates for schools and other public places. Elsewhere, Governor Kay Ivey, R-AL, signed a bill into law that criminalizes citizens in her state from voting in other states.  Amen.  Finally, churches in the Golden State win a court case against Governor Newsom’s harsh and overbearing COVID-19 restrictions imposed on places of worship.   
  70. 2021 Tuesday: Political News III– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer is releasing a new book that blasts Democrats’ court-packing schemes.  Dems are not going to like this as he is ‘one of theirs.’  Next, Mallory Quigley says that the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the Mississippi anti-abortion law case is a watershed moment for the Pro-Life Movement v. the Pro-Death Movement.  The new Mississippi law says abortion past 15 weeks is forbidden unless, of course, the life of the mother is in danger.  We hope the high court decides in favor of LIFE as should everyone else.   Elsewhere, the Pentagon plans to monitor all troops’ social media posts as they try to root out extremists in their ranks (meaning WHITE extremists).[xvi]  Next, the White House and the GOP cannot arrive at an agreement on how to move forward with the infrastructure talks.
  71. 2021 TuesdayPolitical News IV– Palestinians in the U.S. are clogging up the streets of major American cities as they protest the violence in Gaza, violence their leaders in Hamas began and now can’t finish.  We hope the Israelis go full-blown pest control mode and clean this vermin out of their ratholes.  Hamas is the SOLE reason as to WHY Palestinians are dying.  If you don’t want to DIE, then stop launching frigging attacks on Israel.   Speaking of Israel, an AP source says the Bidenistas are encouraging Israel to halt its Gaza offensive.  (Note- the Israelis will halt it when they are good and ready).  Meanwhile, a poll suggests that at least 42-percent of Democrat voters would NOT vote again for pathetic old drooling Joe Biden if he is still around in 2024.   (Note- we could have told you that and the percentage will continue going up).  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a new HATE CRIMES bill after the massive spike of BLACK DEMOCRATS assaulting ASIAN-AMERICAN DEMOCRATS across the country.[xvii]  Next stop, the desk of Joe Biden (or whoever the f**k is really running the show.  Some say Barack Hussein Obama while others say it’s Susan Rice.  Still, others claim Dictator for Life Xi Jinping is the secret hand pulling the strings.  We are still investigating but one thing is clear- we have a Manchurian Candidate in the White House as we speak). 
  72. 2021 Tuesday: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega-Millions jackpot Draw #1660 is sitting at $475 million.  Here are the numbers: 03, 05, 56, 61, 66, and Mega 04.  Out of 195,392 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $183,291 apiece.
  73. 2022 Wednesday: We’re running behind, but we are still here.  Next year will be glorious.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys returned with another awesome studio album on July 05, 1965: “Summer Days (and Summer Nights).”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), as well as some additional guests such as future Beach Boy, Bruce Johnston (vocals, keyboards, and percussion).  Once again, we have a load of long-time beloved tunes such as (1) “Salt Lake City”; (2) “Girl Don’t Tell Me”; (3) “Help Me, Rhonda” (again); (4) “California Girls,” and (5) “Let Him Run Wild.”  Although the album sold loads of copies, the Beach Boys were becoming aware that writing similar tunes about the same topics was beginning to grate on some music critics which began to turn some of the more enlightened listeners of popular music away.  Chief songwriter Brian Wilson would begin having to evolve to keep the family band at the top of the heap, especially since they were in competition with the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and the Kinks.  We hope you will check it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  71. 2010 Friday: The Washington Post publishes a story in which, two retired U.S. Army generals tell the reporter that the U.S. military is having a tough time with 25-percent of the population being obese and ‘too fat to fight.’  Perhaps we should return to a draft and get these punks back in shape?   Meanwhile, some member of the ‘religion of peace’ sets off a bomb inside a Mogadishu mosque sending at least two dozen people to visit with Allah sooner than they had anticipated.

  88. 2021 Saturday F: Political News I–  For some unknown reason (yeah, right), Democrats won’t get behind Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley’s bill with which to rein in BIG TECH.  The Dems are in bed with BIG TECH.  Next, legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the FBI raid on Rudy Giuliani’s townhouse was “UNCONSTITUTIONAL.”  Next (and we sincerely doubt this) the Democrats are acting as though they are willing to make concessions on the infrastructure bill they are trying to ramrod through Congress.    Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘D.C. statehood should not be granted through unilateral congressional action but through the amendments process as it should.’  The Democrats are angry.
  89. 2021 Saturday G: Political News II– Former U.S. Secretary for the Interior Ryan Zinke is going to run for one of Montana’s new U.S. House seats.  Elsewhere, the liberals are ginning up a buzz about U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer possibly going into retirement.  Boy, does the left want to get this guy off the nation’s high court so they can emplace another piece of fecal matter on the court such as the always-angry Stacey Abrams (God forbid).  Meanwhile, at a Utah state GOP convention, the good people of that state booed U.S. Senator Mitt Romney, RINO.  Good.   Finally, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom knows he is going to lose in November’s recall election because he is releasing 76,000 violent and repeat state prison offenders early.  He wants to make sure the people of the Golden State suffer at the hands of these Untermensch.   Thank you, governor, thank you.
  90. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– North Korea says that the Biden regime’s actions suggest the United States wants war with the Democratic Republic of North Korea.  Joe is taking us backward.   Elsewhere, further west in the scenic countryside of Afghanistan’s eastern Logar province, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ conducted a car bombing that propelled 27 unfortunate souls to the ‘other side’ while leaving many more suffering to one degree or another.  Many of the poor bastards were high school students.  Wow.  The Taliban are now warning of counterattacks on U.S. forces as today was the day for total withdrawal.[xxi]  Meanwhile, regarding the Bat Flu vaccine, Canada is putting a halt on the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to contamination fears at the manufacturing plant.  And the liberals SWEAR that the anxieties of vaccine receivers is what has led to blood clots and other reported problems and NOT the vaccine.  Yeah, right.  We’re with you, Canada.
  91. 2021 Saturday I: Miscellaneous News I– California is trying to get their hands on incarcerated Harvey Weinstein but the extradition request currently in on hold.  He is going nowhere (although we are surprised that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden’s regime has not yet sprung a fellow groper).   Next, the U.S. Army’s investigation into the death of Specialist Vanessa Guillen has determined that she was sexually abused, reported the abuse as she should to her superiors, and that nothing was done about it.  This is beginning to sound like the movie, “A Few Good Men” (1992) because at least 20-plus people at Fort Hood, Texas, are in trouble for this case and several similar other cases.  What is wrong with our military?   Elsewhere, citizens of the Empire State will soon see their electricity bills skyrocket as the last reactor- Indian Point 3- at the nuclear power plant closed today.  What is wrong with people?  Nuclear energy is the safest and cheapest way of creating electricity, but the Green Meanies have everyone terrified of nuclear power plants (thank you, “The China Syndrome” (1979).   Finally, in the era of feeble Joe Biden, both CNN and MSNBC have seen their ratings precipitously fall to the point where WE hope they go broke. 
  92. 2021 Saturday J: Mass Shootings News– In Green Bay, Wisconsin, tonight, people were having an enjoyable time at the Oneida Casino when a gunman strolled in and began blasting the place.  Several people were shot but at press time, the authorities had not yet shared information on the status of the victims.  The cops did get their hands on the shooter, however.  Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, today was a deadly day with two people shot and killed and another dozen shout and wounded.  We await status on these victims, too.  What is it in the era of Joe Biden that shootings are occurring all over the flipping place?  What is it about drooling Joe Biden? 
  93. 2021 Saturday K: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3556 with a $43 million jackpot on the line: 01, 06, 13, 22, 31, and Mega 13.  Out of 136,144 winning tickets, 23 people had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $945 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #842 with a $129 million jackpot up for the taking: 35, 36, 47, 61, 63, and Powerball 03.  Out of 64,388 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,331 apiece.
  94. 2021 Saturday L: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS / LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS- In Chicago, Illinois, today a 28-year-old psychopath- Elijah Rule Hill Prince- attacked a man in the 10500 block of South Emerald Avenue who refused to purchase something the punk said he was selling.  This led to Mr. Prince leaping onto the man, putting him into a chokehold, hitting him in the face with a shovel, biting off chunks of his ears, biting his scalp open, gouging out his eyes including one in which he used a portion of a wooden stake which he then drove into the man’s socket.  As his victim lay gasping for breath, Mr. Prince then spit into his gaping mouth.  The victim’s wife rushed out to help her husband and Mr. Prince then bit off humongous portions of her ears, gouged out her eyes, beat her, and spit on her before ambling away leaving his victims in the street.  The cops eventually found the sociopath, arrested him, and currently he is being held on $5 million bond.  When asked about the blood that was all over him, Mr. Prince said it was the “Blood of peasants.” Folks, this is someone the cops should have shot dead on the spot.  All you anti-cop people out there, stop f**king sniveling.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 571,561 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,806 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in SIXTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 466 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  82. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– In a major embarrassment for the American people, our pathetic strumpet of a vice president, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, has been in charge of the ongoing border disaster for 388 days.  Worse than that, this pole-climbing bag of bulls**t has not shown up to do her job in 302 days.  Absolutely disgusting.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens since New Year’s Day 2022 is $732,695,495.  Next, the cost of caring for the Biblical deluge of illegal aliens since senile Joe and “Kooky” assumed office is $42,478,501,238.  The conservative low estimate of illegal alien invaders who have swarmed across the border since the first day of the year is 1,170,603.  Shocking and simply unsustainable.  The conservative LOW-LOW-LOW estimate of illegal aliens devouring resources meant for the American people is 46,602,260.  We believe the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million but given the way things are going, it could soon be 100-130 million which is even worse.  Round ‘em up, load ‘em aboard every available means of transport and get them the f**k out of the country.  NOW.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

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.

  71. 2018 Friday: A federal court in Mexico declares sale of the controversial Barbie doll depicting artist, Frida Kahlo, cannot occur.  Not sure as to what the reasoning behind this is but folks, it is what it is.    Meanwhile, in the race for 2020, Senators Ron Johnson, R-WI, and “Little Bob” Corker, RINO-TN, opt NOT to endorse President Trump in the race for a second term.  Question is, “WHY?”  However, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that he will endorse President Trump for a second term.
  72. 2019 Saturday: Even though the Trump administration is going after ISIS, they still manage to cause damage and in Syria, over the past couple of days they have managed to kill at least 50 Syrian army soldiers and wound numerous others.  Doesn’t say much about the training given them by Russia or Iran.  Meanwhile, much to the dismay of the far-left liberals, the Mueller Report says, “NO Trump-Russia collusion but the possibility of obstruction still exists.’  Elsewhere, Central American illegal aliens trying to get into the United States are saying the Mexicans are abusing them as they hover around the southern border of their country and the United States.’
  73. 2020 Monday: The world continues suffering under the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis that is spreading around the world.  Today, we have 2,458,150 confirmed cases of the disease what with 168,906 confirmed deaths and 643,918 confirmed recoveries.   The Chinese claim 88,423 confirmed cases with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, the United States sees 789,439 confirmed cases what with 42,186 confirmed deaths, and 71,675 confirmed recoveries as of mid-day.  It is interesting to note that China’s figures change little from day to day which suggests they are either lying to the rest of the world or possess the cure which says a lot about communist governments.
  74. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 141,813,257 confirmed cases, +399,077, 3,027,182  confirmed deaths, +7,522, and 81,116,141 confirmed recoveries, +327,427.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,976,092 confirmed cases, UP 108,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 573,551 confirmed deaths, UP 924, and 119,041,372 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii] 
  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]   
  77. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,309 confirmed cases, 6,342 confirmed deaths, and 828,761 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Kuwait, the supposed missing province of Iraq: 258,497 cases of the virus, 1,456 confirmed deaths and 241,696 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    
  78. 2021 Tuesday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,821.30, DOWN 256.33 points (-0.75%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,786.27, DOWN 128.50 points (-0.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,134.94, DOWN 28.32 points (-0.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.42 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,779.20 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.88 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,189.50 per troy oz, -6.80 (-0.57%) while the price of COPPER is $4.20 per pound, -0.01 (-0.21%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,761.73 per troy oz, -49.92 (-1.78%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.72%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.98.     In Icelandic Krona, one greenback equals 125.91 and in Indian Rupee, a buck equals 75.38.[xiii]   
  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.              
  92. 2022 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,162,004 confirmed cases, 89,844 confirmed deaths, and 8,931,498 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,935,813 confirmed cases, 73,759 confirmed deaths, and 5,805,626 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 237,950 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,477,863 confirmed cases, 12,626 confirmed deaths, and 1,438,605 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Puerto Rico: they have 499,539 confirmed cases, 4,188 confirmed deaths, and 473,564 confirmed recoveries.[xx]

  95. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.696 per gallon, $4.106 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.682 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Louisiana- $3.869.  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 22nd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.348 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,397,730,855,439 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  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.

  67. 2017 Wednesday: FOX News announces its letting go of long-time news host, Bill O’Reilly, following purported allegations of sexual improprieties.  We learned somewhat later that the accusations were ginned up so the network could boot him in favor of Tucker Carlson.   Elsewhere, Caracas, Venezuela, sees the ‘Mother of All Marches” as hundreds of thousands of people turn out to protest the dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro.  In subsequent events, several people are killed or injured on both sides of the political divide.
  68. 2018 Thursday: Following the stepping down of President Raul Castro, Cuba elects Miguel Dias-Canel the communist island nation’s new president.  Meanwhile, one day after the U.S. Senate votes to allow ‘babies on its floor,’ Senator Tammy Duckworth, D-Illinois, brings her newborn babe to the world’s most august body.   Elsewhere, the government of Ukraine is urging Russian ‘separatists’ in the Donbass not to flood a mine where the Soviet Union once stored nuclear weapons.  It could cause a humongous environmental disaster; then again, no one ever said Russians were ‘gifted individuals.’
  69. 2019 Friday: Famed German composer and conductor Martin Böttcher, dies at age 91.  Meanwhile, the U.S. National Institutes of Health announces a $350 million grant for researchers to find ways to cut the number of opioid deaths in the four hardest hit states.  Elsewhere, media reports that former Vice President (and Senator) Joe Biden has decided that next week, he will officially announce he is in the race for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  Finally, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces a bill that would raise the minimum age for tobacco products from 18 to 21.
  70. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to Chinese incompetence or by purpose, the COVID-19 continues killing people around the planet.  As of today, there are 2,382,064 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu, 165,636 confirmed deaths, and 611,791 confirmed recoveries which is great.  The United States acknowledges 762,690 confirmed cases, 40,548 confirmed deaths, and 68,119 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, communist China, the place where this debacle originated claims 88,302 confirmed cases what with- get this- 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scumbags but then, communists always lie.  When this is over will be time enough for those affected by the Wuhan Virus Crisis to begin suing the living bejeezus out of every communist official as well as the labs and the wet markets where this barbarity originated.
  71. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 141,684,613 confirmed cases, +690,758, 3,024,290  confirmed deaths, +9,715, and 81,018,628 confirmed recoveries, +562,181.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,878,296 confirmed cases, UP 10,922 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,701 confirmed deaths, UP 546, and 119,038,619 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.[ix] 
  72. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,905 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.    
  73. 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: 3,718,223 confirmed cases, 60,994 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,173,138 confirmed cases, 34,471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,715 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,382 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Mississippi, the home of the New South: they have 309,186 confirmed cases, 7,153 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[x]   Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says he expects to see the Johnson & Johnson vaccine back in action later this week.  In other Chi-Vi news, today, we learned that more than half of our fellow Americans have received at least ONE of their Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.

  75. 2021 Monday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,077.63, DOWN 123.04 points (-0.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,914.76, DOWN 137.58 points (-0.98%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,163.06, DOWN 22.21 points (-0.53%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.59 per barrel, +0.17 (+0.27%).  The price of GOLD is $1,770.80 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.86 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,211.70 per troy oz, +5.20 (+0.43%) while the price of COPPER is $4.24 per pound, -0.00 (-0.01%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,797.85 per troy oz, +20.35 (+0.73%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.40%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Hong Kong dollar, one greenback equals 7.77 and in Hungarian Forint, a buck equals 299.57.[xv]   
  76. 2021 Monday 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 $3.971 per gallon, $2.822 in Florida, $3.734 in Hawaii, and $3.374 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.734.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,190,082,334,572 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  77. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Governor Ron DeSantis,[xviii] R-FL, signs the most pro-law enforcement bill on the books and also has consequences for violent rioters.  God bless you, sir!  Next, a poll in New York state says that ’54-percent of the voters view Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Go, aka the Gropin’ Gov, with disdain.  Another poll tried to say the voters would vote for this POS again, but no one believes that.  Speaking of the Empire State, a judge rules that the case, N.Y. v. Amazon will remain at the state level and not move up the chain to the federal level.   In other interesting “Killer” Cuomo news, N.Y. Attorney General Leticia James may be ‘reviewing’ the erstwhile governor’s autobiographical ‘novel’ of the wonderful job he did during the Chinese Virus pandemic, the one in which, he consigned tens of thousands of New York’s elderly and ill to their deaths.
  78. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– The Texas House of Representatives okays a bill dropping permits to open-carry firearms in the state.  Speaking of the Lone Star State, the former Austin Police Department detective sought in the shooting deaths of three people yesterday has been scooped up in police custody.   Next, President Donald J. Trump advises decrepit Joe Biden NOT to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan on the symbolic date of September 11, 2021, the 20-year-anniversary of the Islamist attack on New York City, on the Pentagon, and on a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Will old drooling Joe Biden listen to the sage advice?  Most likely not. 
  79. 2021 Monday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Elsewhere, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is putting forth a bill demanding the expulsion of lunatic Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, over her visit to Minnesota over the weekend to encourage VIOLENCE no matter the outcome of the murder trial of Officer Derek Chauvin.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is standing by her fellow octogenarian by saying, “She did nothing wrong.”  Both of these imbeciles must be voted out of office or impeached and removed.   In the case of “Prune Face” Waters, she should be doing time prison.  (Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Maxine Waters singlehandedly may have caused a mistrial due to her careless words.’[xix]   In other news, as the deathwatch of Putin critic Alexei Navalny begins, Joe Biden begins uttering some incoherent words in defense of the imprisoned freedom fighter.
  80. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Steve Stivers, R-OH 15th congressional district is resigning his seat to head his state’s Chamber of Commerce.   Next, a Jewish coalition may expel the Zionists of America for them being critical of radical anti-Semite scum such as Congresswomen Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, by calling them out for their anti-Israel bigotry.  What did ZOA say wrong?   Next, Republican leaders are demanding a meeting with ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris so they can discuss the BORDER CRISIS, the one a word-slurring Joe Biden long claimed it wasn’t but now says it is and do something about it.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris has crisscrossed the country but has gone NOWHERE near the border since coming into office.  Speaking of the BORDER CRISIS, Joe Biden issued new rules to Customs and Border Patrol telling them ‘NO LONGER can they use the words ‘illegal alien’ and ‘assimilation’ when discussing the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS POURING ACROSS THE SOUTHERN BORDER.’  WTF?   Speaking of ILLEGALS, Joe Biden’s handlers pledge that fuddled old Joe is going to raise the numbers of REFUGEES accepted into the country but that his original goal of hundreds of thousands may not occur.   (Interesting note- late this afternoon, the White House began walking back Joe Biden’s mumbled statements about the ‘crisis’ on the southern border.  Maybe they’ll CANCEL JOE?).
  81. 2021 Monday J: INTERESTING HYPOCRISY OF THE DAY–  Facebook is now censoring criticism of Black Lives Matter skank Patrice Cullors who has purchased several million dollars’ worth of real estate using money donated to BLM by dimwits such as FB cofounder Dustin Moskovitz who gave $5 million to the Marxist organization.  We cannot have people calling out LIBERAL HYPOCRISY now can we and so the great social media platform won’t let anyone call them out on it.
  82. 2021 Monday K: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT– After the defense wrapped up its closing arguments in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, the jury now has the case and cities from Minneapolis to Chicago to Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California, to Portland, Oregon, are all preparing for out-of-control riots should he be acquitted on ALL charges.  Judge Peter Cahill says, ‘it will be an easy appeal what with Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters urging VIOLENCE on American society NO MATTER WHAT VERDICT THE JURY DELIVERS.  (Note- we have said this and will continue saying it, ‘we think Officer Chauvin is going to get off.  Completely.  The blame will rest on liberal Democrats.  Period.  We think that had not the liberals involved themselves, had not the city of Minneapolis paid George Floyd’s family in the week prior to the start of the trial, they may have gotten a just verdict whereas now- as with George Zimmerman, aka the “White Hispanic,” they won’t get the verdict they seek.  IF they do, Chauvin will beat it on appeal).
  83. 2021 Monday L: NOTABLE DEATH– Former Vice President Walter F. Mondale who served under President Jimmy Carter from January 20, 1977, to January 20, 1981, died today in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the age of 93.  He also was the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 1984 with New York Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro, D-NY 9th congressional district as his running mate.  They were soundly defeated by President Ronald Reagan.  Bon voyage, Mr. Vice President.   In other notable news, we learn today that Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick did not die from having his head ‘stoved in with a fire extinguisher’ as multiple media sources proclaimed for months on end during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021, but from a combination of two strokes caused by chemical irritants sprayed in his face by Antifa ‘protesters.’
  84. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 505,737,568 confirmed cases, +718,359, 6,227,272 confirmed deaths, +2,913 and 457,655,561 confirmed recoveries, +1,211,298.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 566,856 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 202,101 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 454 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

[i] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.

[iii] 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.

[iv] Nationalist China is FREE China, the true owners of mainland China.  Driven off the mainland by the Reds in 1948-49 to the island of Formosa, renamed Taiwan, these people held the seat in the United Nations now held by the communists.  Many believe it is high time we return to a Two-China Policy that would recognize both the Free and the communist governments would benefit the entire world.  Many also believe it is time to boot Red China out of the UN and welcome Taiwan back in, especially since the communists gave the world the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis.

[v] 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.

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

[vii] We promoted the music of both Koss and Back Street Crawler when we did the previous batch of famed British bands.

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

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

  57. 2013 Thursday: Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f, two planets resembling planet Earth are discovered revolving around the star Kepler-62 in the habitable zone, an area around the stars whose atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at the surface.   Elsewhere, President Barack Obama visits the city of Boston.  Meanwhile, as a condition of talking to the Obama administration, North Korea demands that all UN-imposed sanctions on their country be lifted or screw off.
  58. 2014 Friday: About 80 miles northwest of the resort town of Acapulco, Mexico, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hits but the authorities report only minimal damage.  Elsewhere, in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, pro-Russian thugs holding government buildings refuse to surrender them to Ukrainian authorities threatening an international incident.  Kiev needs to send in some worse thugs than the Russian scum holding them and evict them right into a prison cell.  This is what happens when an American president- Bill Clinton- promised the Ukrainians that ‘America would come to their defense if they would only surrender their nuclear weapons.’  This mess occurred shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union.
  59. 2015 Saturday: In Nigeria, 17 people die from a mystery disease within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.  Tests show that the disease is not viral; however, currently, there is no identification.  Elsewhere, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inducts Ringo Starr[vi] (finally!), the Paul Butterfield Blues Band[vii] (finally!), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts[viii] (finally!), Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble[ix] (guy’s been dead quite a while), Green Day[x], Bill Withers[xi], Lou Reed[xii] (finally), and the Five Royals.
  60. 2016 Monday: U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter arrives in Baghdad and informs his counterparts that in an effort to defeat ISIS, the U.S. will be sending more troops to help Iraqi troops repel the murderous thugs.  Elsewhere, in the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, a migrant boat off the coast of Egypt, overloaded with Somali immigrants bound for Italy capsizes and at least 400 of the travelers drown.
  61. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low-cost foreign workers. 
  62. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  63. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  64. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Saturday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former 72nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul H. O’Neill died at age 84.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, to December 31, 2002.

  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  68. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv] 
  69. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,047 confirmed cases, 6,338 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- the West Bank, long a part of Israel: 279,273 cases of the virus, 2,983 confirmed deaths and 245,293 confirmed recoveries.[xv]  
  70. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 81.80 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.98.[xvi]
  71. 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 $3.968 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.745 in Hawaii, and $3.371 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.676.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,186,291,746,801 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]
  72. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS– in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I– Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously, and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021, and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  76. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III– Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin, which is not right, but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  77. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I– Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in an advantageous position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  78. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  79. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.
  80. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 505,019,209 confirmed cases, +211,451, 6,224,359 confirmed deaths, +1,092 and 456,444,263 confirmed recoveries, +441,770.

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 201,649 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 453 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  86. 2022 Monday F: For us, the day after Easter is still another holiday…at least in professional foodservice.  Join us for a drink- you know where to find me.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  32. 1960 Sunday: American Samoa sets up a constitutional government.
  33. 1961 Monday: Some 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba with which to topple communist thug dictator, Fidel Castro- or so the plan went- on this date.  However, President John F. Kennedy’s plan went awry from the start as Castro’s forces crushed the incursion by the third day.  The CIA was going to provide the freedom fighters with air cover but then President Kennedy and his brother, U.S. Attorney General Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy got cold feet and left them to their demise.

  43. 1993 Saturday: LAPD police officers found guilty by a jury of their peers of violating Rodney King’s civil rights.  Remember, they pulled Mr. King over after a long car chase and beat the living s**t out of him, unaware that a passerby was recording their actions.   
  44. 1997 Thursday: New Jersey Devils Martin Brodeur is second NHL goalie to score in a playoff game.
  45. 2003 Thursday: U.S. forces get lucky in Iraq as they scoop up one of deposed dictator Saddam Hussein’s half-brothers, Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, the leader of Iraq’s intelligence-gathering agency, the Mukhabarat.  Off he goes to a black site. 
  46. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  65. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

106. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 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.
