123. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MAY 03, 2021

FF. 1954 Monday: Fighting continues at Dien Bien Phu. At Isabelle, French Foreign Legionnaires send out combat patrols to clear communist approach trenches ringing them on all sides. Fighting is fierce in the style of World War I with hand grenades, knives, rifle butts, and brass knuckles. Once again, the communists are driven away, the Foreign Legionnaires bring in captured weapons to augment what they have left. In the main camp, officers are going through the hospital seeking anyone who can load or fire a weapon to return to duty in defense of the camp. The walking wounded pick up arms and head back to the fight. It is US or it is THEM and when it comes to communists, the only good communists are dead communists.

Trump does a digital town hall from the Lincoln Memorial with Fox News Channel.  Of course, his Democrat enemies blast him for ‘doing it there.’  “Anywhere else other than the Lincoln Memorial” is what they cry and whine but anywhere Trump would have done it would have met the exact same criticisms.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Before there was Badfinger, there was the Iveys, a band that formed in Swansea, Wales, and became the first outside band signed to the Beatles’ Apple label.  The group consisted of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, rhythm guitar), Ron Griffiths (bass guitar, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  The group’s first album, “Maybe Tomorrow,” came out on July 04, 1969, and was slated to be issued worldwide; however, for some still unknown reason, it only hit record stores in Japan, West Germany, and Italy which would make this album an expensive collector’s choice once they changed their name from the Iveys to Badfinger and became a massive global phenomenon.  We wholly recommend this album as it’s one for the history books, the start of something amazing as well as extremely tragic which is why we recommend it with as much vigor as we possibly can.   At Amazon.com, you can get the CD for about $20 while on vinyl, it goes for around $200.00.  Seek it out and give it a listen- enjoy.

  54. 2004 Sunday: Along the Gaza-Israeli border, Palestinian thugs murder a pregnant Israeli woman and her four daughters before Israeli Defense Forces light ‘em up and leave them dead like the rats they are.  Following this Palestinian-caused barbarity, the Israeli government votes NOT to pull out of the Gaza Strip.  Go in there and get this animalistic scum.   Elsewhere, the Baltimore Sun reports that a government report says that ‘since 2001, secret or private searches in the U.S. are up by since 2001, secret or private searches in the U.S. are up by 85-percent.  Who can blame people with the way the Bush administration has turned the country into a police state.
  55. 2005 Monday: About 50 miles north of Kabul, Afghanistan, something goes awry at a munitions dump.  The place blows up killing dozens of people with no full accounting of how many took a one-way trip to meet with Allah or how many others were left devastated one way or another.  Wow.

  57. 2007 Wednesday: Following yesterdays beating of illegal alien lovers during a May Day rally in Los Angeles, California, by the LAPD, outraged Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa orders an immediate investigation as to why the cops beat the snot out of the illegals.  Well, the illegals DON’T belong here so if they weren’t here, they would not have gotten their asses beat.   Elsewhere, President George W.

  61. 2011 Monday: As the news continues to spread about whacking Osama bin Laden, tens of thousands of people gather at Ground Zero in New York City as well as in other places around the country to celebrate the death of this terrorist POS.  The world also learns that in accordance with Islamic law, U.S. military authorities buried him via a sea burial in the Indian Ocean so that a burial site on land would not become a terrorist shrine.  The Allies did the same thing with the Nazis executed at Nuremburg.  They were cremated and went into a river.
  62. 2012 Wednesday: 2012 U.S. presidential candidate Newt Gingrich suspends his campaign for the Republican nomination.   Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton arrives in Beijing for high-level talks with her opposites as well as find ways to line her and her hubby Bill’s pockets with Chi-Com cash.  While on site, she meets with blind Chinese dissident Chen Guangcheng.

  65. 2015 Saturday: In a boxing match that shattered financial records for the sport, Floyd Mayweather Jr. beats Manny Pacquiao on points in 12 rounds in the world unification welterweight title bout.  What a fight.  Congratulations to Mr. Mayweather.   Elsewhere, as the Nigerian military continues fighting through the Sambisa Forest, the government announces that another 234 women and girls have been rescued from the clutches of the Islamist group, Boko Haram.
  66. 2016 Monday: The ‘religion of peace’ is on the move yet again, this time in Baghdad, Iraq, where three separate bombings claim the lives of at least 14 poor souls including a number of Shiite pilgrims while the Syrian Army takes up positions around its prison in the city of Hama where violent prisoners have overthrown the prison staff and are holding them as hostages.  What will President Bashar al-Assad do?  We think he’ll employ poison gas inside the prison killing all of them (and the guards).   
  67. 2016 Monday A: Elsewhere, the Catholic Church in the Philippines urges its followers to reject Roderigo Duterte who seems to be little more than a whack job.  Down in Venezuela, El Presidente Nicolas Maduro orders clocks in his nation to be moved forward by half-an-hour since the country is facing a major electricity shortage and that somehow moving the clocks up by 30 minutes will alleviate the suffering of the people.  YOU know what will alleviate their suffering?  Your fat neck dangling from a noose in the center of Caracas.  POS communist.
  68. 2017 Tuesday: Still angry from yesterday’s provocative overflight of the Korean Peninsula by two U.S. B-1B heavy bombers, Kim Jong Un warns the world that due to President Donald J. Trump’s belligerent stance against the peaceful Democratic Republic of North Korea, the military is going to accelerate its nuclear weapons programs and ‘could test a nuke at any time’ so there.  Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Times reports that Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro is going to ‘draft a new constitution’ seeing as how violent mobs are protesting his regime in the streets.
  69. 2018 Wednesday: Disaster befalls romaine lettuce in Yuma, Arizona, as a massive e. coli outbreak sickens at least 121 people across 25 states killing one in the process.  Grocery stores around the country put out immediate recalls and stop-sales on all romaine lettuces, fresh and packaged, coming out of the region.   Elsewhere, as a show of good faith, ahead of the summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the North Koreans release the last three American detainees they have been keeping as a possible future trump card.
  70. 2019 Thursday: Iowa passes one of the strictest abortion bans saying ‘can’t happen’ after the detection of a fetal heartbeat.  Good for them.   Elsewhere, Senator Michael Bennet, D-CO, says he is in the running for the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  No one cares.  Meanwhile, Facebook and Instagram ban several big names from its site for spreading violence and hate.  Among the folks bumped off the sites are Alex Jones, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, Milo Yiannopoulos, and several others.  We shall see.
  71. 2020 Saturday: After California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom orders ONLY the beaches of Orange County closed, the sheriff of the county says, ‘he will not enforce the order.’  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19- Wuhan Flu front- confirmed global cases are 3,424,254; confirmed deaths sit at 243,674; and confirmed recoveries are 1,092,715.  In the United States, the Kung Flu Virus Crisis- given us by the communist Chinese- is thus: confirmed cases sit at 1,157,782, confirmed deaths at 67,046, and confirmed recoveries are 150,934.  Meanwhile, the communist Chinese claim the following numbers (let’s see if they have changed): confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785!  Which is almost the same as one week ago, lying scumbags.  Around the United States, more states continue reopening and no upticks in the Coronavirus Crisis are seen so to all authoritarian governors out there, you better lighten up.  (It is interesting to note that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is still whining about ‘Confederate and swastika flags being seen at protests but every piece of film we have looked at, those flags are nowhere to behold.  ANTIFA- do your job, go to Michigan, and protest this b***h).
  72. 2021 Sunday: Let’s hope it’s a slow news day…

Meanwhile, in the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, the People’s Army is launching massive attacks against the French Union, French Legionnaires, and local troops along the east side of the camp. Huge artillery barrages precede human wave assaults where the communists spring out of trenches dug right up to the wire. The battles being fought around the hilltop Eliane 2 are fierce but the French trade their shrinking perimeters for a high cost in communist blood.

  37. 1941 Tuesday: Pro-German Rashid Ali al-Ghailani grabs power in Iraq.  Angry at their occupation by the Brits, the “Golden Square,” the movement to oust the British gets underway.  At first, the British would be surprised and overrun but within a few days would be able to recover and strike back.  Meanwhile, in North Africa, following their costly defeat at El Agheila, the British are falling back in headlong retreat across the coastal road.  Is the road for the Axis to Egypt WIDE OPEN?  Meanwhile, German troops are moving towards the Yugoslav border.  They have a date with the Yugoslav people…
  38. 1942 Wednesday: The Japanese army continues the conquest of Burma, pushing the British back in one concentrated assault after another.  Meanwhile, in the Mediterranean Sea theater, the Luftwaffe continues smothering the island fortress of Malta with sortie after sortie of bombers, attacking ships, military targets, and civilian towns and cities.  Still, the people of Malta won’t submit to the Nazis and their Fascist Italian henchmen.

  40. 1944 Saturday: John Barbata, future drummer of the Turtles[ii], the Jefferson Airplane[iii], the Jefferson Starship, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young[iv] was born on this date in Passaic, New Jersey.   Elsewhere, during the air war over occupied Europe, a grave error occurs today as 50 B-24 bombers flew into Switzerland’s airspace and bombed the wrong target, killing at least 40 or more civilians.  Pilots shot down over Switzerland of all sides were typically interned there until the end of the war and the Swiss were not big fans of the Allies, the United States in particular.  This mistake did not help things between the two countries.
  41. 1945 Sunday: American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II.  This would prove to be one of the costliest fights of World War II and the catastrophic loss of life on both sides would press President Harry S.

Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais informs his command to cut the Thai auxiliaries loose.  No longer are they dependable.[ix]

  65. 2002 Monday: Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis and fighting between terrorists and Israeli Defense Forces continues.  Gradually, Israeli troops are pushing the rabid jihadists towards the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem where the human garbage will seek refuge from an Israeli ass-whooping.

  75. 2012 Sunday: In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood nominates Chairman Khairat El-Shater as a candidate for the May 2012 presidential elections.  Meanwhile, as the Syrian civil war continues to rage, Syrian military assets and artillery begin assaulting the city of Homs where a bunch of antigovernment and perhaps even ISIS thugs are holed up.  Wipe ‘em out, boys.

  77. 2014 Tuesday:  Fifty-eight miles north of the Chilean city of Iquique, an earthquake of 8.2 magnitude hits the area, stunning the region.  An earlier earthquake that hit on March 16 was 6.2-magnitude on the Richter scale; scientists predict an even bigger one soon.  Meanwhile, thanks to Russian land-grabs in the Crimea, NATO cancels all civil and military cooperation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  We’re sure they’re upset.  Elsewhere, the death toll in the West African nation of Guinea from its ongoing Ebola virus outbreak is now at 80 dead with possibly dozens sickened.
  78. 2015 Wednesday: Following problems with reaching a self-imposed reduction in water usage in drought-stricken California, Democrat Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown mandates a 25-percent reduction under threat of legal punishment to force lower usage of the precious resource.  Meanwhile, the governor-fearful of rising sea levels, continues to allow millions of acre-feet of water to flow out into the Pacific Ocean to protect the Delta smelt.  Impeach the bastard!  Elsewhere, famed British guitarist Dave Ball who played with Procol Harum died on this date in his native England; he was 65 years-old.
  79. 2016 Friday: At the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, the Golden State Warriors’ NBA record for home game wins ends as the Boston Celtics beat them, 109-106; it was the team’s first loss at home since January 2015.  Elsewhere, as world leaders convene in Washington, D.C., at the annual Nuclear Security Summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives them something on which to chew: he fires off a couple of missiles from the east coast of his s***hole country and into the ocean.  “Notice me,” appears to be the message.
  80. 2017 Saturday: In Stockholm, Sweden, famed singer/songwriter Bob Dylan wins his Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in a private ceremony.  God bless you, Bob.   Meanwhile, the government of Communist China announces its plan to build a city three-times the size of New York City (using American money, of course, purloined from us via disastrous past trade ‘deals’) in Xlongan, a new area.  Three years later, they spread the Wuhan Flu to the rest of the world.  Thank you, China, thank you.
  81. 2018 Sunday: In the 37th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, a stunner of a game occurs as Notre Dame beats Mississippi State by a final of 61-58 what with ND forward Jessica Shepard scoring 19 points.  Elsewhere, combined U.S. and South Korean forces commence their annual military drills, codenamed “Foal Eagle” and “Key Resolve.”  Of course, North Korean strongman, Kim Jong Un, is unhappy with the drills.
  82. 2019 Monday: China announces new laws to take effect on May 01, 2019, to stop the production of fentanyl-related opiates.  Okay.  China is the number one provider of opiates to the United States, being the ‘unseen hand’ distributing harmful drugs to Americans and causing far too many to die from them.  Shame.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi ARAMCO is the most profitable company in the world what with $111.1 billion in the previous year.    
  83. 2020 Wednesday: China continues being a major problem for the rest of the globe as the Wuhan Flu continues wreaking havoc wherever it shows up- with the strange exception of China (or so they claim)- with total number of confirmed cases at or near 911,308 and total number of confirmed deaths at 45,497.  We now know, however, that China has concealed- intentionally- the number of confirmed cases and number of confirmed deaths within their country so who the heck can believe anything these totalitarians claim?  The U.S. number of confirmed cases is closing in at 213,000 with 47,000 or so confirmed deaths.  This is outrageous, yet in China, the infamous WET MARKETS are open once more so the populace can enjoy their bat, rat, cat, dog, monkey, snakes, lizards, insects, and other exotic and endangered animals on their dinner table.  Shame!  World beware of the Wuhan Boogie Woogie!
  84. 2021 Thursday: Stick around to discover what the communists are up to today…

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 588

89. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 30, 2021 UPDATE A:

DAY SEVENTY OF THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION

Third Day of Passover

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus is disputing his own COVID-19 report?  Say what?  Come on, man, YOU are NOT going to blame your Chi-Com masters for the pandemic…

  • 2021 Tuesday: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I- in the first outrageous news story of the day, a new report says that 2.64 million illegal aliens are receiving COVID-19 relief checks which is BULLS**T.  In the second outrageous tidbit of news today regarding the swamping of the border with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, we learn today that in San Diego County[i], California, where our illustrious colleague, Chef Pedro Muñoz resides (and he confirms this), members of the California Teachers Association is visiting illegal alien holding pens where the river-swimming brats are being warehoused to instruct them while it’s still not flipping safe for American kids to attend classes in person more than 5-8 hours per week.   What else do we need to hear to know that the ruling class DETESTS the people they were elected to help?[ii] 
  • 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II- In Texas, the Border Patrol continues reporting that they are arresting hundreds of known illegal alien criminals, thugs, rapists, and narcoterrorists.  We also hear that Russians and Iranians are slipping into the country.  These people should all be shot on sight, especially the latter.  Next, we hear that the nation’s glorious NEW BORDER CZAR, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has no plans on visiting the southern border.   Elsewhere, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district warns the ‘Biden administration’ to stop dumping illegal aliens in the Copper State.  Enough is flipping enough already there Joe Biden.    Meanwhile, Congressman Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district held a round-table discussion with members of his community as to how best they can protect their communities from being overrun with illegal aliens.[iii]  Finally, Lara Trump is hammering the Democrats over their hypocrisy on the border.
  • 2021 Tuesday B: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS- Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district is demanding to know from the U.S. Department of Justice as to whether any prosecutions are going to fall atop the Antifa scum and their reign of terror in Portland, Oregon.  Crickets.   Next, former Congressman Ron Paul, R-TX, says ‘Joe Biden’s gun control policies are going to do nothing to help kids.’  Next, Joe Biden’s new chief of diversity and inclusion at U.S. Southern Command Richard Torres Estrada has had his reign cut short.  Due to a bunch of hateful, mean tweets such as comparing President Donald J. Trump with Adolf Hitler, he is being reassigned elsewhere.  Oh, boohoo for you.  LOL.  Moving on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki was stumped by a reporter’s question at the daily briefing: “Can you explain WHY Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris fly all over the place- unessential travel- when Americans cannot do the same?  Psaki had no answer (but generally, she seldom does.  Talk about an overrated individual).  Finally, ‘Pandering Joe’ Biden has announced some court picks among them the first Muslim jurist at the federal level.  Keep on pandering, Joe.  Can’t wait to see who the pro-jihadi is…
  • 2021 Tuesday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- Senator Pat Toomey, R-PA, is putting a Federal Reserve Bank branch on notice to stop overstepping its boundaries meaning stop pushing the liberal WOKE agenda.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump continues blasting Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci as without him, Operation Warp Speed would never have occurred.  The undynamic duo continue taking credit for what the 45th president did for the American people (for those who want to get the shots which we don’t).  Elsewhere, a Jackson County, Michigan, judge drops ‘terrorism charges’ against three patriotic Americans charged with the attempted kidnapping of Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI.  According to the judge, there has to be evidence of ‘committing terrorist acts’ which there aren’t.  They will still face trial on other crimes.   Finally, our esteemed Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has ordered the Department of Justice to begin investigations into ALL (the white) HATE CRIMES afflicting our nation.  Whoa.
  • 2021 Tuesday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- as a 10th accuser represented by famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred blasts the corrupt, deviant New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, the cringing POS continues to claim that ‘grabbing and groping women is a cultural norm,’ that the ‘Gropin’ Love Gov’ meant nothing wrong by his actions.[iv]  He is sorry if ‘he offended anyone.’  Regarding another deviate, Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer Ghislaine Maxwell, she finds herself facing new charges, charges of corrupting underage 14-year-old girls.  You in trouble there, chickee.   Elsewhere- and we don’t understand this- Nike- the maker of Lil NAS X’s satanic tennis shoes is suing the rapper to remove the ‘human blood component’ in the shoes.  YOU make the shoes, stop making the crap and throw them on the bonfire.  Enough with satanic bulls*** already.  In other news, Dr. Nicholas Meriwether, Ph.D. of Ohio’s Shawnee State University has won a court case on appeal over his refusal to use tranny-friendly gender terms.  Good.  Tell the trannys- aka chicks with dicks- to shut up and grow up.
  • 2021 Tuesday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III- the World Health Organization’s boss Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- in the hip pocket of Comrade Xi Jinping- slams his own COVID-19 report and demands a new investigation into whether or not there was a leak of the Chi-Vi at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  This is strange.  Former S.C. governor and former U.N. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley says the ‘WHO COVID-19 report is nothing more than Chi-Com propaganda.’   In other heartwarming news (LOL), Google Maps will now direct its users (no longer us) to ‘eco-friendly routes.’  Are you going to direct El Jefe Climate Czar John F. Kerry to ‘eco-friendly routes?’  That will be the day.  Next, the Freedom Caucus is split on how to combat the “Chi-Com Joe” Biden agenda.  Folks, you do exactly what the Democrats do: court-shop and get one injunction after another slapped on every crap-ass issue the Biden Gang tries to stuff down our throats.
  • 2021 Tuesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV- Mt. Rushmore is shut down and 400 households in the area are evacuated as out-of-control wildfires continue to rage.  Elsewhere, the Derek Chauvin murder trial continues.  The teen who shot the video of George Floyd’s death says that Mr. Floyd begged for his life.  Famed legal trial attorney and scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says, ‘thank God for cellphone cameras at least in this case.’  What we are curious of is the story we first heard last year shortly after the murder of Mr. Floyd was the connection between then-Officer Chauvin and Mr. Floyd who both worked security at a local nightclub, the El Nuevo Rodeo.[v]  When the story first hit, it opened a door that might show there was a personal issue between the two men that Officer Chauvin then acted upon which would possibly up the charges to first-degree murder but then…that case visited.   Meanwhile, leftist do what leftists do and following the new Georgia Elections Law, democratic-socialists are demanding that Major League Baseball and Professional Golf Association BOYCOTT the Peach State as well a third suit challenging the law was filed today.  My, my, my.  Finally, Philadelphia cops are searching for a POS shooter who shot and killed one person in a shopping mall.  Sounds rather personal.
  • 2021 Tuesday G: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,788,017 confirmed cases, +30,892, 2,794,721  confirmed deaths, +6,509, and 72,501,170 confirmed recoveries, +244,446.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,549,435 confirmed cases, up 230,660 from yesterday’s reporting, 555,577 confirmed deaths, UP 5,714, and 118,013,462 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi] 
  • 2021 Tuesday H: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 228,367 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  • : 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: 3,664,708 confirmed cases, 59,011 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,047,371 confirmed cases, 48,316 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,626 confirmed cases, 459 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 365,075 confirmed cases, 5,296 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Tennessee, the Volunteer State: currently, they have 808,404 confirmed cases, 11,852 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 832,125 confirmed cases, 6,197 confirmed deaths, and 817,698 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Austria, home of the victim for the flashpoint for World War I: 539,561 cases of the virus, 9,275 confirmed deaths and 494,377 confirmed recoveries.[vii]    Note- Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says his administration OPPOSES all attempts at creating a COVID-19 vaccine passport.  Joe Biden- F*** you and your attempt at forcing everyone to get the “mark of the Beast.’
  • 2021 Tuesday J:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,066.96, DOWN 104.41 points (-0.31%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,045.39, DOWN 14.25 points (-0.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,958.55, DOWN 12.54 points (-0.32%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.39 per barrel, -0.16 (-0.26%).  The price of GOLD is $1,683.30 per troy oz., -0.60 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $24.06 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,156.00 per troy oz, -1.70 (-0.15%) while the price of COPPER is $3.98 per pound, 0.00 (0.00%).[viii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,592.00 per troy oz, +53.50 (+2.11%).[ix] The price of RHODIUM is $26,900.00 per troy oz., -600.00 (-2.18%).[x]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.57.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Bosnian and Herzegovina convertible mark, one greenback equals 1.67.[xi]  
  • 2021 Tuesday K: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.896 per gallon, $2.867 in Florida, $3.660 in Hawaii, and $3.325 in Washington state.[xii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,112,715,077,810 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  • 2021 Tuesday L: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III- Former CBP head Mark Morgan says that more than 30,000 illegal aliens have been released into the United States on their own recognizance since January by the Biden administration.   In Texas, a facility designed to hold 250 illegal aliens is now holding more than 4,000 thanks to the fraudulent Biden-Harris administration.   Photos continue coming out via clandestine sources showing the cruel and inhumane treatment the illegals have brought upon themselves.  Repeatedly raped, beaten, traumatized, and molested on the journey here, they suffer more rape and enslavement once they manage to escape illegal holding pens.  The cartels keep them in bondage here.  People, everyone arm up while we still have the opportunity.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, is seeking information on the $87.9 million contract the federal government has made with hoteliers in the country so they can send excess illegal aliens to hotels.   What the f*** is going on?  Why do the Democratic-Socialists hate the American people as much as they do?   Finally, Sean Spicer asks WHY BORDER CZAR “Kooky Kamala” Harris HAS no border-specific meetings on her miniscule agenda?  Why?
  • 2021 Tuesday M: Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1646 with a $152 million jackpot on the line tonight.

ENDNOTES:


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

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

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

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

87. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, MARCH 28, 2021

29. 1939 Tuesday: The Spanish Civil War effectively ended as Madrid fell to the forces of Francisco Franco. Under siege for more than two years, the communist Republicans had managed to defend the nation’s capital from the Falangists, aka Fascist, aka Nationalist Spaniards. The Nationalists began rounding up their communist opponents, executing many of them where they stood (the only good communist is a dead communist) while sparing others to begin repairing the damage they caused to both Madrid and to the rest of their nation. A few survivors managed to flee through enemy lines and seek refuge in the mountains.

  63. 2016 Monday: Belgian prosecutors release one Muslim guy they scooped up in their search for the jihadists that capsized their country and caused widespread fear throughout Western Europe because the evidence upon which, they arrested him did not support the crimes with which they were trying to charge him.  We hope they kept eyes on him anyway…elsewhere, the Japanese military continues building up its forces and intelligence-gathering apparatuses near the disputed Senkaku Islands, the ones the Chinese covet.

  66. 2019 Thursday: After 100-plus migrants seized control of a merchantmen plying the waters off the coast of Libya- and which then took control of the vessel and ordered its captain and crew to take them to Malta- the Maltese navy arrived on scene, stormed the vessel, freed its crew, and took the pirates into custody.  The ship then went onto Malta where it docked and the scumbag refugees were trotted off to holding cells.  We guess a prison on Malta beats living in Libya without Moammar Gaddafi in charge.  
  67. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus continues plaguing the world what with confirmed global cases hitting 664,924 with a total of 30,848 deaths and 140,222 recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the United States there are a total of 124,665 confirmed cases with 2,026 deaths and approximately 1,072 recoveries (although the recovery number seems a bit low).  Meanwhile, in Communist China, the authorities have re-opened parts of the epicenter of the virus- Wuhan- after two months of intense isolation including the nailing in of the afflicted into their apartments.

43. 1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Tibet in the advance of Chinese troops to take refuge in neighboring India. The Chi-Coms claim that Tibet is their territory in the same way they claim Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao. The U.S. should have nuked the Chi-Coms long ago when we had the opportunity; it’s a shame we failed to do what had to be done.

  35. 1945 Saturday: With the Japanese island of Iwo Jima all but secure, U.S. troops are now seeking out Imperial Japanese holdouts clinging to caves, bunkers, and other territory.  Most of the Japanese who fought to defend the island are dead but there are still enough remaining to make inattention by U.S. soldiers lethal.
  36. 1946 Sunday: Future drummer for the Los Angeles-based fun-rock-soul-jazz band, WAR[iv]—Harold Ray Brown—is born on this date in Long Beach, California.  Elsewhere- in the aftermath of World War II- the Nuremburg Trials of Nazi leaders continues with Reichsmarshall Hermann Goering- former chief of the Luftwaffe- on the stand.  He is a scrapper who won’t allow the Allied judges to badger him.  Still, we all know how this is going to end for this unrepentant Nazi.  Other Nazis in the box look up to him.  He is showing them the way.

  41. 1955 Thursday: The 89th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John Marshall Harlan II assumed his position on the nation’s high court on this date.  A Republican, President Dwight D. Eisenhower nominated Harlan to fill the seat of Associate Justice Robert H. Jackson’s seat.  He served from today until September 23, 1971.

  43. 1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Tibet in the advance of Chinese troops to take refuge in neighboring India.   The Chi-Coms claim that Tibet is their territory in the same way they claim Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao.  The U.S. should have nuked the Chi-Coms long ago when we had the opportunity; it’s a shame we failed to do what had to be done.
  44. 1960 Thursday: President Dwight D. Eisenhower forms an anti-Fidel Castro-exile army under the auspices of the CIA.  Communists in Cuba is not good and it’s clear that the U.S. failed to nip this one in the bud.  Soon, the Soviets will be building military bases on the island.  Not good.

  47. 1968 Sunday: A peaceful anti-Vietnam War protest in London was followed by a riot outside the U.S. Embassy; more than 200 people underwent arrest and over 80 people were arrested.   Why the Brits are crying is unclear; we supported them in their endeavors to crush the communists in Malaysia post-World War II just as we gave aid to the French fighting in Indochina.  Ingrates.
  48. 1969 Monday: Golda Meir becomes the fourth prime minister of Israel.  This woman would become a major wartime leader, devastating one Arab army after another.
  49. 1970 Tuesday: The United States cast its first veto in the U.N. Security Council by killing a resolution that would have condemned Britain for failure to use force to overthrow the white-ruled government of Rhodesia.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Army charged 14 officers with suppression of facts in the My Lai massacre case.

  59. 2000: In Uganda, a mass holocaust to rival that of the Reverend Jim Jones occurs in the country as 800-plus people die.  The Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God is deemed a mass murder and suicide, one orchestrated by leaders of the cult.  Ugandan law enforcement believe that the five main leaders of the group died in the fire that took the lives of many but then came to expect that at least one of them was in the wind- with the movement’s wealth.
  60. 2001 Saturday: OPEC announces major cuts in production, effective April 1- 4% or one million barrels per day.  Of course nations dependent upon this oil output are flabbergasted as gasoline prices will go UP.

  63. 2004 Wednesday: NASA’s Messenger became the first spacecraft to enter orbit around Mercury.  The probe took more than 270,000 pictures before it crashed into the surface of the planet on April 30, 2015.  Elsewhere, guests at the Mount Lebanon Hotel in Baghdad got more than they planned on when a car bomb piloted by some jihadists crashed into the place, blowing it sky-high.  In the blast, 17 were killed outright while another 45 or more suffered varying injuries.  Once again, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam is to blame.
  64. 2005 Thursday: The People’s Republic of China frees Uighur Muslim dissident and businesswoman Rebiya Kadeer on medical parole.  They probably decided that if they tortured this woman any longer, her heart would give out so the Chi-Coms most likely bowed to Western pressure.   Kadeer became a millionaire through her real estate holdings so it’s clear the Chi-Coms wanted to shake her down.
  65. 2006 Friday: Federal regulators reported the deaths of two women in addition to four others who had taken the abortion pill RU-486; Planned Parenthood- the notorious ‘baby chop shop’- said it would immediately stop disregarding the approved instructions for the use of the murderous drug.  Elsewhere, fashion designed Oleg Cassini died on Long Island, NY, at age 92.
  66. 2007 Saturday: Australian Prime Minister John Howard announces that Australia will keep its troops in Iraq until the Iraqi government is able to maintain order.   In other truly fascinating news, heavy metal band Iron Maiden[ix] becomes the first heavy metal band to tour India.  How about that?
  67. 2008 Monday: Senator Barack Obama goes to the microphones in Philadelphia to give a speech on race.  He is trying to tamp down concerns that he might be a racist.  No, not ‘our Obama.’  In other news, the Democratic Party of Florida abandons a plan to demand all mail-in ballots for the Democratic Primary Election.   Elsewhere, the Fed is blasted for choosing to bail out banks but not homeowners.  The housing crisis continues to worsen.
  68. 2009 Tuesday: Upset continues to grow over AIG executives going to get bonuses so the Democrat-controlled Congress is threatening to pass a bill by which they can slap hefty taxes on these bonuses.  Other companies that have gotten bailouts like Citigroup and Morgan Stanley are seeking ways they can hand out bonuses to their executives without everyone and his or her brother knowing.  They are trying to get in before the Congress can come after them.
  69. 2010 Wednesday: as the Obama administration continues trying to drum up votes with which to pass the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka the PPACA, aka the ACA, aka “Obamacare,” the White House gets a ‘win’ when two Democratic congressmen opposed to the bill for various reasons change their minds and will vote for it.  Dennis Kucinich of Ohio and Dan Kildee of Michigan announce they are ‘yes votes.’  Oh, good, we can hardly wait.
  70. 2011 Thursday: St. Patrick’s Day parades are now a worldwide event.  Meanwhile, Libya claims it will end fighting on Sunday for the jihadists to turn themselves in to the government.   Elsewhere, in a recent drone strike in Pakistan, the CIA blasts 40 Pakistani civilians to kingdom come and wounds God knows how many others.  WTF are you doing, President Obama?  Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled House passes a bill with which to defund the left-wing NPR.
  71. 2012 Saturday: Despite being under house arrest in Great Britain, Wikileaks founder, Julian Assange, announces he will seek a seat in the senate of Australia.  Meanwhile, ISIS thugs in Damascus, Syria, attack two government offices killing several government employees and wounding others.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi Arabia is sending weapons to anti-Assad forces in Syria.   
  72. 2013 Sunday: Two members of Steubenville, Ohio’s celebrated high school football team were found guilty of raping a drunken 16-year-old girl and sentenced to at least a year in juvenile prison in a case that rocked the Rust Belt city of 18,000.  Elsewhere, the citizens of Wardak, Afghanistan, launch a large rally demanding ALL U.S. forces pull out of their country after numerous mishaps, drone strikes, and other problems.
  73. 2014 Monday: L’ Wren Scott, the 49-year-old model, designer, and longtime girlfriend of Rolling Stone[x] Mick Jagger is discovered dead in her apartment, a mystery to this day.  In other news, Russian President Vladimir Putin recognized Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula as an “independent and sovereign country,” ignoring sanctions imposed by President Barack Hussein Obama of the United States and various European countries.
  74. 2016 Thursday: Following the U.S. placing new sanctions on the ever-belligerent North Koreans over their nuclear weapons and missile programs, the People’s Republic of China inserts itself between their allies, the North Koreans, and their foes, the U.S. by opposing the unilateral actions of President Barack Hussein Obama.
  75. 2017 Friday: Donna Brazile, former head of the DNC, admits she gave Hillary Clinton copies of debate questions ahead of her debate with now-President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, in the Yemeni civil war, a U.S. Apache helicopter piloted by unknown individuals opens fire on a Somali refugee boat off the coast of the war-torn country killing at least 40 refugees and injuring another 35.  NO one knows who committed this dastardly act.
  76. 2018 Saturday: The National People’s Congress appoints Wang Qishan as vice president on this date.  In Iran, a close ally of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his former vice president is arrested for criticizing the Iranian judiciary.  No room for criticism in that country.
  77. 2019 Sunday: After tropical cyclone Idai roars through eastern Zimbabwe killing at least 259 people, the government declares a state of emergency.  Meanwhile, New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand announces she is running for president.  Wow.
  78. 2020 Tuesday: Much to the horror of New England Patriots fans, quarterback Tom Brady announces that after 20 years with the team, he is leaving the team to pursue opportunities with other teams.  COVID-19 update: as of today, there are 197,802 known cases of the virus what with 7,955 deaths and 81,691 recoveries.  Of course, the birthplace of the Wuhan Virus- communist China- leads the pack with 80,881 cases with Italy in second place what with 31,506 cases, and the Islamo-fascist republic of Iran in third place with 16,169 cases.  The United States is in eighth place with 6,223 cases with West Virginia being the ONLY state sans any reported cases.  Meanwhile, young people continue flocking to beaches across the country to celebrate Spring Break.  What a bunch of losers as many food service establishments across the country are shuttering their doors and sending employees home like many of us chef-authors here have done. 
  79. 2020 Tuesday A: In the three presidential primaries held today, candidate Joe Biden beat the hell out of his opponent Bernie Sanders winning Arizona, Florida, and Illinois.  Ohio postponed its primary until later in the year out of fear of the COVID-19 virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, the one the Chinese gave the world.  Meanwhile, speaking of the Hubei Hooey, Pfizer and Biontech sign deals to develop a vaccine for the Chi-Com Virus, the Chi-Vi, the ‘VID.  People do not believe it is possible but with President Donald J. Trump’s backing, anything is possible (although the Democrats will never admit it).
  80. 2021 Wednesday: DAY 57 of the Biden Regime.  What is this fossilized piece of wood and his Chi-Com masters up to today?  Stick around and discover the truth along with us.  We all want the same answers…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Once again, UFO found a way by which to come back, as they almost always do.  The new band featuring Phil Mogg (vocals), Pete Way (bass/vocals), Paul Raymond (guitars, keyboards, and vocals) joined forces with Jason Bonham (drums), and Vinnie Moore (guitars).  The resulting effort, “You Are Here,” came out on March 16, 2004 and blew the socks off fans around the world.  Say what you will, fans of modern bands typically dismiss the older folks as ‘dinosaurs’ and ‘fossils’ whereas folks our age- sixties and up- understand what REAL rock and roll is and it sure ain’t none of the goobers you see performing on Saturday Night Live or on late night TV.  We hope everyone will rush out and give this fine album a good listen and then consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.  You will be so glad you did- we guarantee it!

ENDNOTES:


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

[ii] We promoted the music of a group of interconnected venerable British rock bands 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.

[iii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iv] 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.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[vi] 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.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too.

[vii] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[viii] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[ix] If we are still here in 20 years, we most likely will be doing Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Poison, and all the rest of the crazy bands but you can bet we will never do the music of Maroon Five.

[x] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

  55. 2019 Thursday: The Trump administration recognizes Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the legitimate president of that troubled South American country.  This of course drives the Venezuelans amok as they fight to quell ongoing civil disturbances over their attempted-fixed presidential elections.  Canada, European and other Western nations recognize the opposition leader as the rightful winner whereas the totalitarian states around the globe don’t.  Elsewhere, competing funding bills in the U.S. Senate fail as everyone expected they would.  Meanwhile, House Democrats dangle the fraudulent fishhook of $5.7 billion for a VIRTUAL border wall meaning drones will hover ahigh watching millions of illegals as they swarm across the border.
  56. 2020 Friday: Iraqis continue marching through Baghdad and other cities in the country protesting the presence of U.S. troops on their soil following the droning of Quds Force commander General Qassim Soleimani on New Year’s Day.  The U.S. is unmoved but Iranian agents are causing trouble on the ground, seeking the people to rise up and to throw the Americans out of their country.  Elsewhere, following Iran’s floating of ‘opening a dialogue with its neighbors,’ the government of Saudi Arabia tells them to stop attacking oil facilities and oil tankers in the Gulf.  No reply.
  57. 2021 Sunday: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,006,885 confirmed cases, +718,738, 2,125,373, confirmed deaths, +15,615, and 54,608,134 confirmed recoveries, +352,720.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,227,940 confirmed cases, up 118,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 421,330 confirmed deaths, UP 2,272, and 10,987,457 confirmed recoveries, UP 13,290.  IF that leaning tower of drool, ‘President’ Joe Biden is going to save the country, he needs to save it NOW, ASAP, by getting the Trump vaccine to the people and ordering an immediate reopening of ALL businesses.
  58. 2021 Sunday A: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,163,830 confirmed cases, 36,816 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (Hawaii has not updated their case numbers in more than a week), 336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 304,107 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Wyoming: currently, they have 50,898 confirmed cases, 571 confirmed deaths, and 48,571 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,961 confirmed cases, 4,341 confirmed deaths, and 512,702 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Texas rolls out 100,000 Chi-Vi vaccine doses in a single day making BLUE states look like the losers they are.  Speaking of Blue States, Governor Gavin Newsom of California is being ripped apart for buying PPE from the Chi-Coms directly instead of American manufacturers.  Once again, is another direct tie between Democrats and their Chi-Com masters in Beijing.
  59. 2021 Sunday B: We learn today that Instagram is FORCING ALL USERS to ‘sign up’ for the White House account to make it look like ‘President’ Joe Biden- the usurper in chief- has a massive following when in fact, he has NO one.  Hence why many chef-authors and support staff at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have shuttered their Instagram accounts among other pro-Chi-Com social media sites.  F**k them.  Speaking of scurrilous social media scumbags, Facebook closes Young Patriots accounts.  We already dumped Facebook and it’s amazing how much they cried when they did.  We guess they enjoy exercising the power and determining whether one is ‘permitted’ on their site or is not.  F**k them, too.
  60. 2021 Sunday C: Today we have both NFL Championship games- first, the NFC Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 30 (13-5) @ Green Bay Packers, 32 (14-3) and then the AFC Championship- Buffalo Bills, 17 (15-3) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 22 (15-2).  Out of 25 chef-authors here at the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day, aka AICPENDBLOG.COM, 17 say it’s going to be a ‘State Farm Super Bowl’ between Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers and Kansas City and Patrick Mahomes while the others don’t.  We shall see.   Results for the first game: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31, Green Bay Packers, 26. NO STATE FARM SUPER BOWL this time around.  Eight of our colleagues are at 50-percent in their picks.  We shall see, again. Here are the results for the second matchup and we must say, it was a brutal game.  Some of the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line behaved like Capitol Hill police officers did on January 06, stepping aside and almost waving the Chiefs in to sack or to commit some questionable hits on Josh Allen, QB of the Bills. Final score: Chiefs, 38, Bills 24.  Next week, the Pro-Bowl then on February 07, 2021- Kansas City Chiefs @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Super Bowl LV.
  61. 2021 Sunday D: The Michigan GOP censures Rep. Fred Upton, one of theirs who voted for impeachment in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Payback is coming to all these losers.  Likewise, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey says he’s dropping a planned U.S. Senate run in 2022 because the Arizona GOP has censured him for handing the 2020 Presidential Election over to the Democrats and their standard-bearer, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden. Next, Arizona GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward wins re-election as the chair of the GOP in that state for another two years.  Speaking of the U.S. Senate and of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton says, ‘the Chi-Coms are blackmailing the ‘46th president’ with sanctions.   Elsewhere, the FBI rescues 33 kidnapped children from human traffickers and predators in the L.A. area.  God bless you!
  62. 2021 Sunday E: Chef Lilah in Hawaii says the Hawaii GOP is receiving loads of criticism over the party saying that “Q supporters” in Washington, D.C., are patriots, believing in what they believe.  She says, ‘that in every so-called conspiracy theory, an element of truth exists as otherwise it would not gain strength.’  She also says, ‘that Democrats are desperate to deflect blame from their leadership in the House telling Capitol Hill police officers to step aside and allow the Antifa-interlaced protesters easy entry into the Capitol Building on January 6.’  Look, Nancy Pelosi is out there accusing President Donald J. Trump of homicide for the people who lost their lives in the left-wing mob riots when she is the one who should shut up and lawyer up.  When the truth hits, no one will acquit Speaker Pelosi.  Finally, Chef Lilah says, ‘as for QAnon, why wouldn’t people believe this when they live in a country where millions of their fellow citizens- particularly minorities- have been aborted, a country in which fetal body parts are harvested and sold, a country in which, perversion, sexual deviancy, engineered racism, and the elimination of history, both good and bad, is at risk of being destroyed?’  No, she concludes by saying, ‘QAnon is not difficult to believe; no, it’s difficult to disbelieve when one closely examines what the left is doing to our country and why, the damage being caused, none of which is moral or Christian.’  God bless you, Chef Lilly!

  62. 2020 Friday C: Georgia Governor Brian Kemp orders a signature envelope recount to determine if fraud occurred in his state on November 3.  After seeing ample evidence of the voter fraud that occurred in State Farm Arena in Atlanta on the night of November 3-4, the entire election should be tossed and done over- in person, with voter ID- because the original election was totally corrupt.  If people are not charged and punished for the crimes they committed against the voters of the Peach State and sent to prison, in 2022 Governor Kemp, the Democrats will come for YOU.  Moron.
  63. 2020 Friday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 65,760,928 confirmed cases, +649,062, 1,515,990, confirmed deaths, +11,687, and 42,248,499 confirmed recoveries, +396,600.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 14,463,929 confirmed cases, up 238,540 from yesterday’s reporting, 281,798 confirmed deaths, UP 2,874, and 6,878,662 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,323. 
  64. 2020 Friday E: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,293,887 confirmed cases, 19,586 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 18,605 confirmed cases, 256 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 180,125 confirmed cases, 3,040 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Dakota: currently, they have 81,949 confirmed cases, 989 confirmed deaths, and 75,653 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 342,101 confirmed cases, 2,896 confirmed deaths, and 327,162 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of Israel, Jerusalem has contracted with Moderna for three-times the original amount of Chi-Vi vaccines to be delivered to them.  Let’s look at one other country: Canada- currently, they have 402,569 confirmed cases, 12,496 confirmed deaths, and 320,096 confirmed recoveries.  Seeing as how the Canucks declared WAR on the USA via their bogus Dominion Voting Systems, we do NOT wish them well. 
  65. 2020 Friday F: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,218.16, UP 248.74 points (+0.83%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,464.63, UP 87.05 points (+0.70%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,699.12, UP 32.40 points (+0.88%).  Price of GOLD: $1,842.00 per troy oz., +2.00 (+0.11%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.32 per troy oz., +0.067 (+0.28%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,070.20 per troy oz., -2.60 (-0.24%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,357.80 per troy oz., +39.90 (+1.72%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.53 per #, +0.0045 (+0.13%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.09, -0.17 (-0.37%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.82 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.88 Afghan Afghani.  In other economic news, last month, the U.S. added 245,000 new jobs, below expectations.  Unemployment dropped to 6.7-percent, still high, but given the fact that we are in a war with the Chi-Coms, the Canucks, the Iranians, the Russians, and the dimwits in the Democratic Party, it’s NOT so bad.
  66. 2020 Friday G: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1613 with a jackpot of $264 million up for grabs.  Here are tonight’s numbers: 03, 19, 24, 44, 50, and Mega 08.  Out of 100,494 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,863.
  67. 2020 Friday H: A federal court of appeals rules in favor of the Trump administration redeploying Defense Department funds into erecting the southern border wall that separates civilization from the uncivilized.   Another judge rules against the Trump administration’s termination of DACA by ordering it restored.  This is the program the Obama administration sold as a ‘humane act’ because it provided children brought to this country by their illegal alien parents with an avenue towards legality and eventual citizenship.
  68. 2020 Friday I: As you know, we keep a close eye on the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges here in the U.S.  Talk about a Fifth Column!  The Democrats fit that bill to a tee, thanks to their constant pushing of socialism, socialism, and more socialism.  Stick around to discover what they’ve done today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Say what you will about aged rockers- rock and roll either makes you a long-lived legend a la Mick Jones- or it takes you out in a blaze of glory at age 27 like Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, Janis Joplin, Alan Wilson, or some slightly older guys like Keith Moon and the like.  Foreigner’s current lineup, much younger than legendary axe man Jones delivers a red-hot set of fiery renditions of tunes that led to the sales of 80 million and still counting albums.  I mean, how many bands still are able to continue generating a positive cash flow yet that’s what these guys do.  Fans love the album like we do which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and add it to your growing collection.  Lou Gramm- who?  Please seek out “The Greatest Hits of Foreigner- Live in Concert,” a superb album that came out on December 22, 2018- you will be glad you did.

Trump is imposing on American industries doing business with the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, with alligator tears running down their faces and dripping off their chins at the World Trade Organization, they defend their status as a “developing nation’ so they get breaks other ‘more developed nations don’t.’  What a load of crap, once the Chi-Coms entered the UN and then the WTO, the rest of the planet’s nations suffered. 
  51. 2019 Friday: “Democracy Now!” reports that 91 minutes following the phone call between President Donald J.

Trump blasts CNBC as ‘biased and fake news’ over its coverage of the G-20 Summit.  Elsewhere, Operation Warp Speed chief, Dr. Moncef Slaoui, says vaccines will  be shipped within 24 hours of emergency use authorization approval.  Meanwhile, the Ethiopian military takes the fight to the Tigray rebels fighting for independence from one of the world’s oldest nations.  Ethiopia is predominantly a Christian country whereas the rebels are Muslim.

  54. 2020 Sunday B: Here are the scores for Week 11 of the NFL’s 2020-2021 Season starting with a recap of Thursday Night Football’s game: (1) Arizona Cardinals, 21 (6-4) @ Seattle Seahawks, 28 (7-3) 5:20 P.M.  Next, here are Sunday’s games: (2) New England Patriots, 20 (4-6) @ Houston Texans, 27 (3-7) 10:00 A.M.  (3) Philadelphia Eagles, 17 (3-6-1) @ Cleveland Browns, 22 (7-3).  (4) Pittsburgh Steelers, 27 (10-0) @ Jacksonville Jaguars, 3 (1-9).  (5) Detroit Lions, 0 (4-6) @ Carolina Panthers, 20 (4-7).  (6) Cincinnati Bengals, 9 (2-7-1) @ Washington Redskins, 20 (2-8).  (7) Atlanta Falcons, 9 (3-7) @ New Orleans Saints, 24 (8-2).  (8) Tennessee Titans, 30 (7-3) @ Baltimore Ravens, 24 (6-4).  (9) New York Jets, 28 (0-10) @ Los Angeles Chargers, 34 (2-7) 1:05 P.M.   (10) Miami Dolphins, 13 (6-4) @ Denver Broncos, 20 (4-6) 1:05 P.M.  (11) Green Bay Packers, 31 (7-3) @ Indianapolis Colts, 34 (7-3) OT 1:25 P.M.

(14) Tomorrow Night’s Monday Night Football Game: Los Angeles Rams (6-3) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3) Monday Night 5:15 P.M. 
  55. 2020 Sunday C: Thanks to POS California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, tax revenues are plummeting, particularly in San Francisco where tax revenues are down 43 percent thanks to onerous Chinese Virus restrictions and lockdowns.  Everyone who lives in the state and who hasn’t thrown in the towel and moved elsewhere can go to recallgavin2020.com and sign the RECALL PETITION.  Two-million signatures are required with the state having an additional 120 days to gather signatures thanks to the Wuhan Virus Crisis and as of today, we are halfway there.  We got rid of another Democrat governor 20 years ago, Gray Davis who would be a far better person to lead the state NOW than he was then.  Governor Newsom orders all sorts of authoritarian lockdowns while he and his family flaunt them all the time.  Enough is enough.  Let’s get this POS removed from office ASAP!  On the bright side, most law enforcement officials in the state will no longer enforce his restrictions.   Elsewhere, efforts to impeach another thug governor, Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan, continues to gather steam.  Let’s boot these closet Marxists out NOW!
  56. 2020 Sunday D: The United States plans to deploy nuclear-capable B-52 bombers to undisclosed bases in the Middle East to keep the Iranian mullahs in check.  Meanwhile, NSA Chief Robert O’Brien is abroad promoting the ‘Get Tough on communist China’ policies of President Donald J. Trump.  America is partnering with countries opposed to the growing threat posed by the Chi-Coms as they continue projecting power around the globe through their corrupt Belts and Roads Initiative that links poorer countries as well as submissive European Union countries to Beijing via vast infusions of cash.  Look at how the Chi-Coms treat some of their proxies like trying to blame Italy for the Beijing Bat Flu- is this the thanks they get for working with the Chi-Coms?  Benito Mussolini’s ghost must be rolling around in his grave.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] When we begin promoting the music of our favorite classical composers and the conductors who perform them, Ravel will be among the first.  Stick around for when that day comes…

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

[iii] We began promoting the music of this famed British blues-boogie-rock band on Monday, 12-February-2018 and the offerings ran through Monday, 19-March-2018.  Please look for them in these posts.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We have yet to offer the music of the Talking Heads but hope to get around doing so and soon.  Stay tuned.

[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.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] Although leftist historians of modern-day call El Caudillo Francisco Franco an ‘evil dictator,’ the man kept his country out of World War II as well as prevented a communist takeover of the nation.  He deserves celebration, not condemnation.

[vii] We have not yet begun presenting the music of INXS but hope to do sometime in 2022-2023.

[viii] This pro-Russian German leader is a disgrace to her country and to the world.

Mueller III, special counsel digging into ‘Trump-Russia collusion.’  The deeper Mueller and his team of anti-Trump hacks digs, the more they see Hillary Clinton implicated into dealing with the Russians by selling off a good portion of the nation’s uranium supply.  We shall see where this leads…
  53. 2018 Tuesday: Following Saudi Arabia’s murder of Saudi American journalist Jamal Khashoggi, President Trump announces he believes the Saudi’s version of events which leads RINO and Democratic Party anti-Trumpers to go berserk, outraged over his defending of a staunch Middle Eastern ally.  Speaking of Saudi Arabia, the human rights group, Save the Children,’ alleges that Saudi Arabia is responsible for the starvation deaths of at least 85,000 Yemeni children.  The Houthi rebels should stand down and quit trying to force the country to become pro-Iranian.

  55. 2020 Friday: Never-Trumpers are now worried that Trump Republicans of whom there are tens of millions won’t show up to vote for either Senator David Purdue or for Kelly Loeffler after blasting them as racists, haters, homophobes, bigots, Islamophobes, transphobes, scumbags, stupid, backwards, vile, and worthless, deplorable POS.  This is a tough one; however, YOU RINOS made your frigging bed, now sleep in the damned thing.  It appears that the Democrats are going to win so perhaps they should win.  IF you won’t support a president who has done all the things you claim to want and to support, then millions of Trump voters say, “Screw you.”  Time for a strong third party.
  56. 2020 Friday A: Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin urges Congress to unlock $580 billion of unused COVID-19 stimulus relief monies to help the American people remain somewhat solvent.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization advises people NOT to use Remdesivir to treat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Like hydroxychloroquine, it seems to work extremely well in combatting the Chinese Virus yet the W.H.O. doesn’t want people using it.  Meanwhile, various state governors continue increasing their Chi Vi restrictions such as in California which now has a 10:00 P.M. to 5:00 A.M. curfew to stop the virus spread.  Is the virus only virulent between those hours?  Remains to be seen.  Finally, Georgia announces that “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his sidekick, “Kooky Kamala” Harris have won the state, the first time a Democrat has won the Peach State in 30 years, by a margin of 12,000 votes.  It is what it is…
  57. 2020 Friday B: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 57,369,049 confirmed cases, +929,805, 1,368,746, confirmed deaths, +15,971, and 36,706,250 confirmed recoveries, +415,170.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 11,934,455 confirmed cases, up 189,962 from yesterday’s reporting, 257,309 confirmed deaths, UP 1,919, and 6,155,250 confirmed recoveries, UP 31,386.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,087,464 confirmed cases, 18,573 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 16,917 confirmed cases, 223 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 145,255 confirmed cases, 2,723 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 327,049 confirmed cases, 2,742 confirmed deaths, and 315,930 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other state: South Carolina- currently, they have 203,161 confirmed cases, 4,231 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  It is what it is, it seems to be going against the norm to provide the recovery numbers; what is up with that?
  58. 2020 Friday C: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 29,263.48, DOWN 219.75 points (-0.75%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,858.97, DOWN 49.74 points (-0.42%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,557.54, DOWN 24.33 points (-0.68%).  Price of GOLD: $1,869.60 per troy oz., -2.80 (-0.15%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.22 per troy oz., -0.138 (-0.57%).  Price of PLATINUM: $952.40 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.50%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,340.90 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.19%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.29 per #, +0.002 (+0.06%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $42.47, +0.05 (+0.12%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.89 Afghan afghani. 
  59. 2020 Friday D: A mass shooting occurs at the Mayfair Mall in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  At least eight people were shot but reports suggest none of the victims was in a life-threatening situation.  At least 75 police officers are scouring the area seeking the shooter.  The Milwaukee division of the FBI also is on scene to aid in any manner in which, the feds can.  Meanwhile, GOP Senators Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, and Mitt Romney say they will ‘vote’ to confirm ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s cabinet picks.  Elsewhere, a 2-1 ruling by the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down a ruling in the Florida city of Boca Raton and of Palm Beach County that prevents therapists from offering conversion therapy to children struggling with sexual orientation or gender confusion.  Good for them.
  60. 2020 Friday E: President Donald J. Trump announced today a dramatic lowering in the prices of prescription drugs.  The costs of insulin could be reduced by thousands of dollars per year which would benefit all diabetic patients enormously.  Elsewhere, efforts to recall California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom have been granted a 120-day extension until March 17, 2021.  Meanwhile, Harvard Law School professors sign a petition demanding any lawyer who did or continues doing work on behalf of President Donald J. Trump must go to a reeducation center so they can be cleansed.  Wow.  WTF is going on in the United States.  Finally, we learn that Democratic Party U.S. Senate candidate Jon Ossoff- seeking to oust Senator David Purdue- works for a Chi-Com owned company and derives his living from money paid to him by the Chinese Communist Party while his counterpart- Reverend Raphael Warnock- seeking the other U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Kelly Loeffler is an unapologetic black racist and communist.
  61. 2020 Friday F: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1609 with a jackpot of $198 million at stake: 26, 33, 45, 61, 68, and Mega 17.  The highest winners were 49 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $441 apiece.
