171. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JUNE 20, 2022

2008 Friday: Like poor Tibet, Nepal also is coming under the sway of the Chi-Coms which leads to massive protests in front of the Chi-Com embassy. At least 700 Tibetans were there among the crowd, all of whom were arrested with three being slapped with charges of ‘anti-Chi-Com activities.’ Folks, who runs Nepal? The government of that nation or Beijing? The world knows the answer.

  25. 1923 Wednesday: France announced it would seize the Rhineland to help Germany pay its debts from World War I.  This would be yet another massive slap in the face to the German people that would open their ears to the song of Adolf Hitler.  Stupid, stupid policy.

  28. 1941 Friday: The U.S. military replaced the Army Air Corps with the U.S. Army Air Forces.  In 1947, the military abolished the Air Corps by creating the United States Air Forces.  Elsewhere, the Germans and their Axis allies in Eastern Europe are preparing to launch the largest land invasion in the history of the world in two days.  Air crews are receiving their briefings, artillery targets are being registered, and the 1.5 million troops ready to cross the frontier into the Soviet Union are enjoying their final days of rest.  War is coming and the Soviets are dozing on the other side of the border.
  29. 1942 Saturday: The Afrika Korps conquers Tobruk in North Africa.  Meanwhile, Nazi Adolf Eichmann announces the deportation of Dutch Jews.  On the Eastern Front, heavy fighting continues around the Crimean fortress city of Sebastopol as German and Rumanian troops continue fighting to batter their way into the city.  Farther east, the road to Stalingrad is underway as the German spring and summer offensive is moving south with growing momentum.

  32. 1944 Tuesday: The Nazis begin the mass extermination of all Jews at Auschwitz Death Camp.  Meanwhile, the Allies are advancing on all fronts in Europe.  On the Leningrad Front, the Soviets are advancing while the Allies are advancing in France and Italy.  Fighting is fierce.  Elsewhere during World War II, Japanese naval forces retreated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea after suffering heavy losses to the American fleet.  On Saipan, American forces continue battering the Japanese defenders who cling tenaciously to every scrap of geography.  It is victory or it’s death for them.

  34. 1946 Thursday: The Big Four- the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union agree to begin the gradual withdrawal of Allied occupation forces from Italy.  The Soviets also agree to withdraw their troops from Bulgaria which although on the side of the Axis during World War II did not participate in Operation Barbarossa and also have traditionally been a Russian ally.  Still, they will be a part of the communist bloc.  It is what it is…

  58. 2009 Saturday: As the Arab Spring continues growing across the Muslim world, riot police in Tehran are finding their hands full with mobs of protesters demanding changes in their dictatorial regime.  This is ONE country that new President Barack Hussein Obama won’t provide help.  Elsewhere, jihadists near Kirkuk, Iraq, get lucky with a suicide bombing that propels 67 people up to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving at least another 200 in varying stages of suffering.  That’s the ‘religion of peace’ for you…
  59. 2010 Sunday: The Chicago Journal reports it’s been a busy weekend in President Barack Hussein Obama’s adopted hometown of the Windy City what with 40 people shot and seven of them dead.  Halfway across the world, similar issues are occurring in central Baghdad what with two car bombings ejecting at least 26 passersby up to meet with Allah sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving another 53 in varying stages of distress.
  60. 2011 Monday: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers grants private companies the right to create new website domains and suffixes.  Elsewhere, the Anglican Church in England considers permitting openly gay clergy members to become bishops.  Well.  Elsewhere, sectarian clashes break out in East Belfast, Northern Ireland, leading to numerous people being trucked off to the hospital and others to the hoosegow.

  62. 2013 Thursday: Instagram offers its users the ability to upload videos to its service.  Elsewhere, the Committee on the Rights of the Child accuses E-V-I-L Israeli soldiers of torturing Palestinian children and using the poor little bastards as human shields.  (Note- what a crock of crap!).  Elsewhere, in the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 4 games to 3 by a final score of 95-88 successfully defending their title from the previous year.  Knuckle-dragging cretin LeBron James is declared the MVP for the second year in a row.
  63. 2014 Friday: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiates a 7-day cease-fire, allowing troops to defend themselves but not to attack; during the cease-fire, separatists can turn in weapons and receive amnesty; so far, rebels have rejected the offer.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration rushes 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help that government’s forces battle the ISIS thugs in the oil-refining city of Baiji.   Light these scum-sucking bastards UP.
  64. 2015 Saturday: After white racist Dylann Storm Roof murders nine African Americans at the church in South Carolina earlier in the week, mass protests break out demanding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Capitol building.   Meanwhile, in southern Pakistan, a heat wave peaks killing at least 2,000 people from heat stroke and dehydration.   Elsewhere, in Japan, one-thousand female robots named “Pepper” sell out in under one minute at $1,600 per unit; so says creator SoftBank Robotics Corp.
  65. 2016 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court- noting that it has already reviewed other such bans on ‘assault weapons’ (ALL weapons are ‘assault weapons’ whether they be a gun or a screwdriver or even fists)- refuses to hear other states’ bans such as Connecticut and New York.  What we need is a universal permit to carry arms, both out in the open and concealed.  Cleansing the nation of ‘gun-free zones’ would also enhance the safety of every American.  Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that the number is higher than ever what with endless wars, climate disasters, and economic impoverishment: 65.3 million people (which the Democrats want to bring to the U.S.)
  66. 2017 Tuesday: Following his arrest for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods checks into a rehab clinic to deal with his pain medication dependency and his ongoing sleep disorders.   Elsewhere, as outrage continues to grow over the death of 22-year-old American tourist Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean jailers, Young Pioneers Tours, the firm taking foreigners into the hellhole known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea says it ‘won’t be taking any other Americans into that godforsaken country as the risk is simply too high.’  (Note- if you remember, young Mr. Warmbier visited the nation, removed a poster from a hotel room wall for a souvenir and then underwent arrest, a bulls**t trial, imprisonment, and just before he died, Kim Jong Un sent his catatonic body home to his parents).
  67. 2018 Wednesday: Bowing to pressure from his political enemies and armies of wailing illegal aliens, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order ending separation of families at the border, a policy that began under the previous administration but which no one conveniently remembers.   Meanwhile (and this is a good one!), the Chi-Coms express their regrets that the United States is withdrawing from the bulls**t U.N. Human Rights Council.  With dictators, thugs, criminals, and communists making up its membership, the organization is little more than a joke.
  68. 2019 Thursday: Leader of communist China, Xi Jinping, travels to North Korea to visit with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, the first Chinese leader to travel to the S-hole country in 14 years.  In other news, the Iranians commit an overt act of war when their military shoots down a U.S. surveillance drone which they claim trespassed into their airspace.  Almost immediately, the military-industrial-political complex in the United States as well as Democrats and pro-war RINOs begin banging the drum for President Donald J. Trump to launch yet another unnecessary Middle Eastern war.  Wow.
  69. 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump kicked off his official 2020 re-election bid with a massive rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  What a barn burner, he seems unstoppable.  Moving on, here are today’s stats for the Xi Jinping special Wuhan bat flu virus, first the globe: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 762 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 640 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for the CHOP state, Washington: 28,163 confirmed cases, 1,265 confirmed deaths, but sadly, like California, moron Gov. Jay Inslee will NOT REPORT the number of confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army would immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor.  The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent.  Good for you, President al-Sissi!
  71. 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant.  Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side.  He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army.  It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination.  Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum.  This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November.  VOTE TRUMP!
  72. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 178,960,779 confirmed cases, +14,417, 3,875,601 confirmed deaths, +8,968 and 163,779,820 confirmed recoveries, +386,650.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,401,712 confirmed cases, UP 8,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 617,083 confirmed deaths, UP 166, [xiii] and 28,694,843 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,439.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,177 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 160,472 deaths

  77. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.229 per gallon, $2.947 in Florida, $3.987 in Hawaii, and $3.633 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let’s look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.880.  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- Argentina: $3.833 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,429,862,051,238 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiv]
  78. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #89 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of America’s number one problem and to have yet shown up for a single day on the job.  Ah, well, Benny Johnson of Newsmax says that Customs and Border Patrol has arrested numerous terrorists on the terrorist watchlist as well as all sorts of criminals- especially sexual criminals- and yet more continue coming.  In other news we believe is related to the border, a Houston deputy’s home was invaded in a pre-dawn assault and his wife and 4-year-old stepdaughter shot and seriously wounded by unknown perps.  A week or so ago, news appeared that said the cartels were going to target the homes and families of Lone Star State law enforcement officers.   Thank you, Joe “F**king” Biden.
  79. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the mess, Rep. August Pfluger, R-TX 11th congressional district, says that ‘illegal aliens are overrunning the 29 inland counties he represents.’  (Note- we urge Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, to put former Sheriff Joe Arpaio in charge of all holding pens for the illegal aliens).  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, is seeking to join Florida and Idaho in sending law enforcement to help aid Arizona and Texas in repelling the illegal alien invasion.  Good.  Every RED STATE governor must send troops to defend the country.  This is akin to the emergency that surrounded the Alamo, only this time, the GOOD GUYS are NOT going to lose to the barbarians.
  80. 2021 Sunday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says the ‘world powers must wake up to the dangers of the Iran nuclear deal.’

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album came out on June 12, 1983: “Rarities.”  Sooner or later, every band still performing who began in the early 1960s compiled a collection of so-called ‘rarities,’ thus we have this fabulous compendium of surf, sun, and fun music.  So, what do we have here?  Well, we begin with the Lennon-McCartney classic, “With a Little Help from My Friends,” followed by the Box Tops classic, “The Letter.”  After that, we have an alternate take of Stevie Wonder’s “I Was Made to Love Her,” followed by Brian Wilson’s “You’re Welcome.”  After that, we have “The Lord’s Prayer,” followed by “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” an alternate take, followed by a Dennis Wilson-penned tune, “Celebrate the News.”  We have an alternate version of “Good Vibrations” and gobs of other glorious tunes all lovingly compiled from the archives of this legendary group such as “Land Ahoy,” a live version of “All I Want to Do,” and several other unique and enjoyable cuts.  Seek this one out and add it to your daily playlist of the absolute best in summertime music.  You will be glad you did.

  72. 2020 Wednesday: Fulton County, Georgia, District Attorney Paul Howard led a press conference early in the morning in which, he charged the two officers responsible for the death of Rayshard Brooks.  Officer Garrett Rolfe, the man who fired the two lethal shots at a fleeing Brooks was hit with numerous accounts- 11 by our count- including felony murder.  The other officer- Devin Brosnan- was hit with 3 counts but the D.A. said he flipped and would testify against the other officer at trial.  Sad to say, there were massive numbers of cops who called in sick today in Atlanta, a big outbreak of Blue Flu.
  73. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are the Xi Jinping Chinese Bat Flu virus statistics for today: 8,261,260 confirmed cases, 445,468 confirmed deaths, and 4,013,202 confirmed recoveries which are the numbers for the globe.  Here are the stats for the United States: 2,205,567 confirmed cases, 119,471 confirmed deaths, and 687,450 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states where the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers for California: 157,015 confirmed cases, 5,208 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries thanks to the politics of Gov. Gavin Newsom and his Democrat hacks.  Next, here are the stats for Hawaii: 740 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 637 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 26,759 confirmed cases, 1,231 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, communist China says they might be locking things down again due to a spike in coronavirus numbers.   Here are the stats for the Chi-Coms (take them with a grain of salt because they LIE): 83,293 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,394 confirmed recoveries.  (Note: our sources in Hong Kong inform us that the numbers should be fifty percent- or more!- higher.

  75. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden To Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 298,516 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 161,133 deaths  
  76. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,806,205 confirmed cases, 63,259 confirmed deaths, and 2,068,914 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,352,995 confirmed cases, 37,448 confirmed deaths, and 2,131,508 confirmed recoveries, more or less the SAME numbers.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,170 confirmed cases, 507 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 448,160 confirmed cases, 5,843 confirmed deaths, and 220,640 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Mississippi: they have 319,704 confirmed cases, 7,369 confirmed deaths, and 310,189 confirmed recoveries.[xxii]   
  77. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,747 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,061 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Democratic Republic of the Congo (they pushed ahead of Sudan to the new position), 118th country on the list: 36,578 cases of the virus, 866 confirmed deaths and 27,894 confirmed recoveries.[xxiii]     
  78. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,823.45, DOWN 210.22 points (-0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,161.35, UP 121.67 points (+0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,221.86, DOWN -1.84 points (-0.044%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.02 per barrel, -0.02 (-0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,776.50 per troy oz., +1.70 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $26.02 per troy ounce, +0.16 (+0.61%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,060.40 per troy oz, +5.40 (+0.51%) while the price of COPPER is $4.18 per pound, 0.00 (+0.08%).[xxiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,518.03 per troy oz, -271.31 (-9.98%).[xxv] The price of RHODIUM is $23,000.00 per troy oz., +200.00 (+0.88%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $595,000.00 per troy oz., -7,500.00 (-1.24%). [xxvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.41.     In Malawian Kwacha, one greenback equals 793.74 and in Malaysian Ringgit, a buck equals 4.14 and in Maldivian Rufiyaa, one dollar equals 15.42 of theirs.[xxvii]        
  79. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.227 per gallon, $2.957 in Florida, $3.976 in Hawaii, and $3.628 in Washington state.[xxviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Missouri: $2.756.  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- Mozambique: $3.794 per U.S. Gallon.[xxix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,417,914,125,896 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia with $136 and 180 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxxi]
  80. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #86 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and has yet to show up.  Fire this laughing orangutan.  Next, former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan believes that other states will follow suit and begin deploying law enforcement officers to aid in protecting our southern border as “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has in sending Sunshine State law enforcement to aid his fellow governors in Texas and Arizona.   Speaking of Florida and the border, Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody, Republican, is calling on other states to follow the lead of her state and to send law enforcement officers to the border states to help repel the illegal alien invasion.
  81. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The European Union creates Chi-Vi vaccine passports so citizens of the international body can travel freely between member states.  Americans seeking to travel in Europe will also have to be able to prove vaccination status, proof of antibodies related to previous infection, or recent negative COVID-19 tests; otherwise, YOU can’t come to the EU.  (Note- F**k the EU).  Next, Ryanair is suing Great Britain over new travel restrictions ahead of the busy summer travel season.
  82. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that a new bill will hold the Chi-Coms wholly responsible for letting loose on the world the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, even as more and more evidence continues to come out showing that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines are harmful to human beings due to toxic ingredients, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the government is going to dump $3.2 billion into creating antiviral pills.  (Note- Dr. “Phony Tony,”[xxxii] how much of that $3.2 billion will go into YOUR pockets?)  Elsewhere, as the Delta variant of the ‘VID continues to spread, federal government is doubling down on everyone to get vaccinated with the yet-to-be-approved by the FDA vaccines.  Friends, when drug manufacturers have QUALIFIED IMMUNITY stripped away from them (as it should be from the Chi-Coms in the World Court) and people affected negatively by their products can sue them, we might consider getting inoculated then.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden News–  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says the recent ‘Putin-Biden summit’ shows how Russian leader Vladimir Putin is testing the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, Fred H. Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, affirms this by saying that the ‘recent summit between Russia’s leader and (dimwitted) Joe Biden harmed U.S. security.’  (Note- Joe Biden told Mr. Putin NOT to hack into 16 industries or companies which means the other ones are on the table).   Rep. Mike Turner, R-OH 10th congressional district, said of ‘Joe’s summit’ that he had ‘no real goals for his meeting with Vladimir Putin.’  In other regime news, the U.S. Department of Justice is dropping the lawsuit against former Donald J. Trump White House adviser John “Endless Wars” Bolton’s book, “The Room Where it Happened.”
  84. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has introduced a bill with which to abolish the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms (and Explosives).  Meanwhile, a new poll says that ’74-percent of Republican voters support state-wide election audits.’  Amen.  We suspect it’s higher than that.   Meanwhile, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says questions regarding ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ failure to visit the southern border in 86 flipping days no less are both ‘unfair’ and ‘disrespectful.’  F**k her and f**k YOU.
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who defended their home from violent Black Lives Matter fecal matter protesters a summer ago pled guilty to misdemeanors to get this bogus case off their backs.  When BLM trash knocked the gates of their private community and threatened them and their pets with rape, death, and the burning down of their property, the duo grabbed their guns, went outside, and stood in front of their home armed and ready to go.  YET, they NEVER once pointed their legally-owned firearms at the thugs creating havoc in their neighborhood.  God bless them and let’s see the BLM thugs hauled before court and given some stiff prison sentences.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Political News III– Conservative political activists in Michigan are demanding an Arizona-style 2020 Election audit.  Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the ‘Gropin’ Gov’ celebrates the end of the pandemic with a massive show of fireworks in the Big Apple.  Both he and NYC Mayor Bill ‘Bag O’ Fries’ Di Blasio are in a celebratory mood after driving the state and the city into economic collapse.  Elsewhere, J. Chuck Todd, the little snowflake says of 2020 Election fraud proponents that if they don’t accept the premise the election was honest, ‘it’s going to be a painful interview.’  J. Chuck- F— you.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– By a vote of 7-2, the United States Supreme Court shagged off another GOP challenge to Obamacare.  Go figure.  (Note- as long as John Roberts serves as chief justice, we will NEVER get this evil monstrosity off the backs of the American people.  The Biden regime crows that ‘SCOTUS NOT overturning Obamacare is a BFD’).  However, the case was rejected on STANDING and not on the MERITS of the case.  Next, the Supreme Court stands up for the Catholic Church as it rebuffs a lawsuit brought by LGBTQIA+ fascists seeking to destroy a Catholic charity placing kids with foster parents.  The gays want foster kids placed in homosexual homes which the charity says goes against the teachings of the church.  We concur.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Business News– After soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo pushes Coca-Cola aside and endorses water, the soft drink manufacturer’s stock tumbles by $4 billion in value.  (Note- we say ‘F**K woke corporations, they get what they deserve.  Soft drinks are nonessential foods; no, people choose to drink them just as we can un-choose to drink them and even better, carry them in our restaurants and foodservice operations.  Screw them).
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– There is a growing outcry for the Biden regime to release information related as to HOW MANY undercover agents of various federal law enforcement agencies helped carry out the FALSE FLAG OPERATION the world had the misfortune to see on January 6, 2021, when Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter infiltrated the peaceful ranks of Trump supporters and turned a peaceful gathering into a riotous, violent mob, one dimwits like Joe Biden still claim ‘killed a cop.’   Speaking of these more than 450 poor souls locked up in solitary confinement, most are not expected to go to trial until sometime within the next 2-3 years.
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– As the Derek Chauvin defense team continues its push toward demanding a retrial of their client over all sorts of corrupt activities and poor-timing on behalf of the city of Minnesota, the prosecution is doing everything it can so as to avoid having to try Chauvin again.  We fully suspect that thanks to the actions of one juror who LIED on the juror questionnaire and those of Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd congressional district that NOT only will Officer Chauvin receive another trial, but he will also be acquitted which will lead the DOJ to double down on double jeopardy.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: National Security News– The FCC says it will explore whether Chi-Com telecommunications equipment should be banned over their ties to the People’s Liberation Army.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Environmental News I– It’s summertime and the American West and Southwest is experiencing elevated temperatures.  Morons like Sandy “The Fly” Cortez are shrieking about ‘CLIMATE CHANGE!  GLOBAL WARMING!  EXTREME WEATHER!’  Those of us who have been around for decades understand that when it’s summer in some locales, it gets flipping hot.  Enough said.  (Note- the dreadful thing is, the Climate Change dupes want to take away our air conditioning).
  93. 2021 Thursday S: U.S. House of Representatives News– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi champions her new “Juneteenth” federal holiday making it the 12th paid federal holiday.  Drooling Joe Biden is expected to sign the bill into law.   Meanwhile, the GOP House campaign arm opens up to accepting cryptocurrency donations.  In other Democrat-dominated House news, Judiciary Committee Dems are seeking Trump-era subpoenas for data on Democrat lawmakers suspected of leaking like sieves.  Here we go again, another BOGUS investigation.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: U.S. Senate News– U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he will pass the federal budget sans any output by Republicans.  He could give a shit whether Republicans vote for the budget or they don’t.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell dismisses Senator Joe Manchin’s, D-W. VA, stance on voting rights.  Everyone knows spineless Senator Manchin will drop to his knees before the fawning POS majority leader and do his bidding.
  95. 2021 Thursday U: Louisiana State News– Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA, says the state will END enhanced unemployment benefits as of July 31, 2021.  It is time for Louisianans to return to work.  NOW.
  96. 2021 Thursday V: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, and leaders of both political parties held a joint news conference today in which the state will make a down payment of $250 million to begin again the construction of the border wall along the frontier with Mexico.  What we anticipate is that if Texas and Arizona begin reinforcing their borders with corrupt Mexico, illegals will flood through New Mexico and California which will cause voters in those two states to demand better border security.  The American people will no longer stand for a tidal wave of bottom-of-the-barrel illegal aliens running amok in their country.  We are contributing to the effort to secure our southern border.   (Note- we think that Governor Abbott should bring in former Sheriff Joe Arpaio to run the desert gulags for the illegal aliens- HE knows how to make people NEVER want to break the law again…).  Meanwhile, Governor Abbott signs ‘constitutional carry’ into law meaning Texans do not have to have a concealed carry permit to carry a legal firearm.
  97. 2021 Thursday W: Economic News– Unemployment numbers surged UP last month by 412,000 new claims for jobless benefits.  Oh, no, Joe, your ‘economic plans’ are collapsing the economy.  Dumb ass.
  98. 2021 Thursday X: U.S. Military News– The Associated Press reports that since 2010 the U.S. military has ‘mysteriously’ lost more than 1,900 weapons.  Say what?  
  99. 2021 Thursday Y: Observation of the Day– In other news, it is becoming increasingly clear that our military no longer has combat-qualified officers leading it but political hacks and appointees working to destabilize it and then to rebuild it as an updated version of the RED ARMY.  How soon will we see political commissars appointed to monitor the minds and actions of the soldiers?  How soon will it be before we see troops falling back from overwhelming odds being machine-gunned by their commissars?  Don’t laugh, we bet the Russian military that morphed into becoming the Red Army never thought their leaders would be more concerned with politics than with fighting and most importantly, winning wars.  We would say that this is among the reasons we spent more than 20 years in the septic tank of Afghanistan or why when President Donald J. Trump assumed office back in January 2017 that we suddenly found out we had troops in more places- like Equatorial Africa and parts of the Middle East we had no clue we had troops.  What we are seeing is a combination of the Red Army married with wealth for the top positions while everyone else must fall into line, follow the political orders of the day while paying scant attention to fighting to win against diabolical enemies.  (Note- Chef Vicky- let me know what YOU think).  (Note #2- look at NASA- now we are concerned with putting the first women and people of color on the moon?  While that’s great, what if they aren’t as skilled as other astronauts?  That is not a mission I would ever seek to participate).
  100. 2022 Friday:  Stick around and discover whatever the heck is going on today…

[i] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[ii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers soon.

[iv] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[v] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[vi] When we do Electric Flag, we will do Al Kooper.

[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] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ix] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[x] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[xi] 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.

[xiii] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[xiv] Not sure as to when we promote the music of this amazing vocalist.  Within the next two decades is a plausible timeline…

[xv] 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.

[xvi] If we remain in publication long enough, we will promote the music of this famed group.

[xvii] We hope we live long enough (which at our ages is not a guarantee), we want to promote the music of Otis.  There was no one like him; there will never be another like him in the history of the world.

[xviii] 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.

[xix] 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.  The album, “Tommy,” we promoted the album on Saturday, 08-August-2015.  We hope you will seek it and music by this band and its members out ASAP.

  60. 2019 Friday: In Game 4 of the 2019 NBA Finals, in Oakland, the Toronto Raptors beat the injury-plagued Golden State Warriors by a final score of 105-92 to take a 3-1 series lead.  Meanwhile, the United Nations says at least four million Venezuelans have abandoned their country since 2015 due to the out-of-control socialist government of Cuban-bought dictator Nicolas Maduro.  UN: Do something about it.  This is what the civilized nations did following World War II- this is your flipping job!

Currently, Joe is shy 164,864 deaths

  65. 2021 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,585 confirmed cases, 6,418 confirmed deaths, and 832,981 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country-  Singapore, 107th country on the list: 65,210 cases of the virus, 33 confirmed deaths and 61,660 confirmed recoveries.[ix]

The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (-0.00%). [xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.     In Guatemalan Quetzal, one greenback equals 7.71 and in Guinean Franc, a buck equals 9,757.00 and in Guyana Dollar, one dollar equals 207.28 of theirs.[xiii]        
  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.221 per gallon, $2.852 in Florida, $3.945 in Hawaii, and $3.603 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.301.  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- Dominica: $3.476 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,379,2427,836,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  After Japan, the Chi-Coms, Brazil, and the United Kingdom, Ireland holds about $300 billion of U.S. debt.[xvii]
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  Today is Day #77 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the laughing hyena, to be on the job and we supposedly have a sighting: she is going to discuss border issues with the Guatemalan government in Guatemala[xviii].  Wow.  Next, One America News shared the latest statistics on the ILLEGAL TSUNAMI overwhelming the United States this morning.  First, the cost to U.S. taxpayers this day alone: $539,091,968.  Second, here is the total cost to American taxpayers for the year 2021 in caring for the illegal alien tidal wave: $172,593,922,048.  Imagine what this money could do to help the American people?  We could end the mushrooming tent cities across the country.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the southern border in 2021 alone: 1,768,949.  Finally, here is the estimate by OAN of the total number of illegals in the country as we speak: 35,768,948.  (Note- the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day has long prophesied that the numbers as far back as 2009 when this blog began was between 35-50 million.  In 2021, we believe the numbers are closer to 60-80 million.  All of these people must be scooped up and deported out of the country with microchips embedded in their bodies so we can track them from here on out).  Elsewhere, the Bidenistas now are saying that people being granted U.S. citizenship will NO longer have to pass an FBI background check.  Say what? 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Voters are going to the polls in Peru today.  For president, they have TWO populist candidates from which to choose: (1) Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of a former Peruvian president and businessman Pedro Castillo.   Meanwhile, in Japan, popularity polls for aged Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga are at 37-percent.  And he just met Joe Biden!  Whoa.  Speaking of Japan, Japanese citizens are evenly split as to whether the 2020, uh, 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will proceed or undergo cancelation out of health fears.   Next, Israeli officials prohibit a ‘far-right group’ (what are they, Nazis?) of Jews from conducting a march through Jerusalem’s Old City.   Elsewhere, President Volodymyr Zelensky blasts Joe Biden for his ineptitude of lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline carrying natural gas from the former Soviet Union to former Nazi Germany.   Finally, while the Biden regime bumbles about, jihadist Iran is close to a break-out in months- if not weeks- of achieving nuclear weapons. 
  70. 2021 Monday H: (New Category) War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– Boko Haram’s leader, the thug Abubakar Shekau severely wounded himself when his thugs clashed with rival, ISIS-affiliated scumbags.  He tried to detonate a suicide vest so his enemies would not capture him.  However, he did not do a decent job so he could not go down to hell to commune with Shaitan and achieve his 72 virgins (and yes, young boys, too).  We guess his people were able to drag his mauled body away to safety.[xix]   Elsewhere, U.S. senators call for better regulation on cryptocurrencies as they are the number one way in which criminals and terrorists move money around and get paid for services.   Finally, the founder of the terrorist group, Hezbollah- Iran’s 74-year-old Ali-Akbar Mohtashamipour- died from a Chi-Vi infection.  Good riddance.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information–  After chaos ensued in the Big Apple over the weekend with the return of Chi-Vi curfews, lockdowns, and restrictions from Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, NYPD arrests at least 23 people.  NO bail for them.  Next- and as expected- following one California’s county making changes to HOW it collects COVID-19 fatalities data, Chi-Vi deaths in Alameda County collapsed by 25-percent.  Alameda County- home of Oakland, California- now is only compiling COVID-19 deaths only if the virus actually killed them, not that the victim merely died with traces of the Bat Flu in their system.  We believe that deaths formerly blamed on the Xi Jinping Virus were driven higher due to politics and financial grants and not because they truly are as high as claimed.  Politics, baby, it’s all about POLITICS.   Meanwhile, Stanford University epidemiologist and professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s credibility is completely shot.  Finally, a new report broadcast on Newsmax says that ‘rare genetic sequencing in COVID-19 suggest a Wuhan lab leak’ because it would appear the virus was modified in the lab and not in nature.[xx]  
  72. 2021 Monday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– A day after filing a lawsuit against the seemingly corrupt and fraudulent Dominion Voting Systems, the lawyer who filed it on behalf of mega-businessman Mike Lindell has resigned from the firm.   Meanwhile, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says that ‘probes into voter and election fraud don’t happen overnight.’ 
  73. 2021 Monday K: Social Media News and Big Tech News– A French government watchdog is going after Google by accusing them of abusing their market power in online advertising.  (Note- we could say much about Google, one of the most corrupt, crooked companies on the face of the planet but we won’t).   In other news, following Nigeria closing down Twitter over its ban of a recent tweet by that nation’s President Muhammadu Buhari, Jack Dorsey’s eunuchs began wailing that ‘Twitter is a human right.’  No, Twitter is FECAL MATTER, President Donald J. Trump should have shut them and their equally pathetic pansy buddies at Facebook DOWN.   
  74. 2021 Monday L: U.S. Supreme Court News– The United States Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that NO citizenship should be available to those given TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS.  They say that people given something ‘temporary’ should not then be granted something ‘permanent.’  Once whatever crisis ends from whence, they came, they must return home.  Period.   Next, the high court rejected a lower court case in which the ruling said that ONLY males could register for the Selective Service aka the Draft.  The court said it’s up to Congress to determine who can and who cannot be drafted. 
  75. 2021 Monday M: Moron News– Shame and humiliation continue to grow for Sandy “The Fly” Cortez (AOC) as people continue taking shots at her over telling her pobrecita abuelita NOT to take the $100,000 conservative commentator Matt Walsh raised in TEN HOURS to help “The Fly’s” granny.  Since poor abuelita has been told NOT to take the cash for house renovations by her granddaughter, GoFundMe will refund the money- nearly $104,000- to the hundreds of thousands of kind, caring donors.  In other Moron News, CNN’s Brian “The Schmeckel” Stelter is taking incoming fire over his ass-kissing, boot-licking interview with White House chief propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki over the weekend.  Stelter- who lost his testicles seemingly at birth- is nothing but a ground-kissing, brown-nosing POS.  We cannot imagine what he must do for Jeff Zucker to maintain his job…; next, California is forging ahead with giving SLAVE REPARATIONS to former slaves…seeing as how California NEVER had slavery, it seems rather stupid.  Still, a desperate governor will do anything to cling to office (but note- black people who signed the recall petition won’t get a dime and even worse, whatever they receive will be 100-percent taxable.  YOU heard it here, first).[xxi]  In other Moron News, ‘environmentalist’ (and angriest teenager alive) Greta Thunberg ‘is back’ with a new video.  So f**king what?
  76. 2021 Monday N: Health And Medical Alerts– there may be hope for drooling Joe Biden, “Mumbles” Pelosi, and vacant-eyed Senator Dianne Feinstein: the Food and Drug Administration- the FDA- has approved a new Alzheimer’s disease drug, the first in nearly two decades.  Biogen’s new drug- aducanumab will be marketed under the brand-name Aduhelm®.  While it might be way too late for nonagenarians such as “Mumbles’ and centenarians like ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ and Di-Fi, there may be hope for numerous others.  Thank you, Biogen.
  77. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden and his boss, Barack Hussein Obama are out there doing a quick-step as to HOW WONDERFUL Obamacare is even as Red States are severing ties with the socialized system of healthcare.  (Note- the two should take their act on the road).  Speaking of the regime, chief White House propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says press briefings will soon return to 100-percent capacity.  Elsewhere, after the GOP rejected Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan, the GOP rejected his counteroffer which led to drooling Joe to reject the next offer from the GOP.  (Note- news reports suggest that Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is having a hell of a time trying to push the regime’s agenda as things surrounding the usurper president continue to implode).  In other Biden regime news, a new poll says that with JoJo Biden in the White House, the regime is not enjoying an early bounce in Germany and France what with the (fraudulent) change in White House occupancy.  (Note- everyone KNOWS the truth- that’s why).  Finally, the regime claims to have recovered millions in ransom monies paid to the hackers who shuttered the Colonial Pipeline.  Good.
  78. 2021 Monday P: Political News I– As the U.S. birthrate continues to decline, questions arise as to whether the federal government should encourage its citizens to get married and to produce new generations of kids in much the same way Hungary and other nations have.  (Note- it seems like our country frowns on marriage, promotes legions of bastard children, and non-reproductive styles of living like homosexuality and transgenderism.  Maybe things would be better if the Russians and Chi-Coms took over?).   In other news, Megabank J.P. Morgan-Chase has announced it’s going to refuse donations to ALL Republicans who question the legitimacy of the illegitimate 2020 Elections.  (Note- that’s a bank brown-nosing the Dems for you).  Elsewhere, former Governor “Crooked Ed” Rendell, DS-PA, says of the ‘infrastructure plan’ that some ‘nontraditional infrastructure’ (like what, Ed?) should be left within it its thousands of pages. 
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Political News II– Kimberly Klacik, former congressional candidate and founder of the Red Renaissance PAC says the ongoing killings among black Americans with guns is  a left-wing cultural genocide.   Today, we learned that yesterday on Fox News Channel, the ignoramus Chris Wallace was trying to light into Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, over his defense of the filibuster and his refusal to join fellow Democrats in pushing the “For the People Act,” aka H.R. 1/S 1, the total theft of America’s elections system.  Wallace called the steadfast senator ‘naïve.’[xxii]  Elsewhere, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed two bills into law today, both of which deal with foreign threats and intrusions into the state.  The first law prohibiting foreign influence in the Sunshine State, singling out nations like Russia, communist China, Iran, Venezuela, Syria, Cuba, and other s—hole countries.  The second one singles out the Chi-Coms in particular forbidding them to establish Confucius Institutes and funding universities and newspapers with wagonloads of Chi-Com cash.  Good for you, Governor.
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump said (1) that Mark Zuckerberg broke the law with drop-boxes on Election Day.  He also said that cryptocurrencies are a SCAM, something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  When asked if he would run with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis in 2024 as his running mate, he said, ‘sure, it’s possible.’  Unclear as to whether he would run with Vice President Mike Pence again- we rather doubt it.  Elsewhere, Javier Villalobos becomes the first GOP governor-elect in the history of McAllen, Texas.  In a city 85-percent Hispanic and mostly Democrat, the people want someone willing to STOP the flood of illegal aliens.  
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News IV– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, along with Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that the popularity of the ‘America First’ rallies proves that power in the United States does NOT reside in Washington, D.C., but around the country among the American people.  Elsewhere, Boston Police Commissioner Dennis White is fired over claims of domestic violence at home.  Ouch.  Later in the day, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that ‘Dr. Fauci must go.’  Meanwhile, news arises that former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Republican, will challenge sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, DS-NV, in the 2022 Elections.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– we have three new nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Awards this year, the first being whacked-out psychiatrist Dr. Aruna Khilanani- who recently gave a speech on April 6, 2021, to students at Yale University School of Medicine in which, she talked about wanting to kill and bury white people.  Wow.  Next, Calvin Pearson and his dimwitted sidekick, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Jones, creators of the 1619 Project made the list, too, as both of them deserve the ‘Lavrentiy Beria treatment’ of ‘lead to the back of the head down in the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison in central Moscow- symbolically, of course (racist bigot- what were you thinking?).  The third and final person deserving of the treatment is Robin Di Angelo, the promoter of WHITE FRAGILITY who earns millions of dollars promoting this foul rot.  Congratulations.  You join our growing list.
  83. 2021 Monday U: Miscellaneous News I– A day or so before Kelly Stewart was to become the newest betting analyst at ESPN, she was fired over previously acknowledged tweets from nearly a decade ago, tweets she deleted, in which she called people attacking her ‘fags’ and other derogatory names.  Folks, at what flipping point does one’s past disappear?  At some point, it simply must, especially if the person acknowledges his or her fault and apologizes.  Enough is flipping enough already.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are going to build a nuclear reactor in Wyoming while Jeff Bezos is planning to embark on a suborbital flight into space within the next couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines makes Chi-Vi vaccine passports optional for its guests.
  84. 2021 Monday V: Nasa, Space, and UFO News– speaking of space, NASA administrator Bill Nelson, D-FL, says that ‘NASA scientists are investigating the U.S. Navy’s films of UFO incidents.’  Good.  This is a national security issue.
  85. 2021 Monday W: National Security News– Red State reports exclusively that the ‘highest-ranking defector to come out of communist China has been working with and being protected by the Defense Intelligence Agency. This defector- God forbid ‘Chi-Com Joe’ Biden gets ahold of his or her identity as unlike what the libs claimed President Donald J. Trump would do with the Russians, Joe Biden most certainly will for his Chi-Com masters that person will be in grave danger- has informed the DIA of all manner of clandestine weapons programs.  Not only this but the defector has also pointed to Chi-Com spies in the FBI, the CIA, and in several other sensitive government agencies.  This is NOT good.  Ferret out this scum and put them in prison.  Apparently, when FBI Director Chris Wray heard of this, he was ‘blindsided.’  This article must be read to be believed. [xxiii]
  86. 2021 Monday X: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former Alabama segregationist and Governor James Patterson, Democrat, dies at age 99.  We suspect that Joe Biden knew Governor Patterson and knew him well seeing as how the old coot knew all the segregationists.
  87. 2021 Monday Y: The Wrap-Up– In Pakistan, two express trains slammed into one another killing at least 51 people in the human-caused disaster.  Looks like Casey Jones driving the train was high on cocaine…(so sang the Grateful Dead[xxiv]).  In other news, the Biden regime is defending the indefensible upcoming meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin who is going to rip the feeble old Joe a new one on June 16, 2021, in Switzerland.  Speaking of drooling old Joe, people are asking WTF over his lack of any word on the 77th anniversary of the D-Day landings while he continues to flounder about the White House before returning home to Delaware or to Camp David on the weekends.  (We suspect his keepers dope him up with all manner of drugs to try to keep him in some sort of coherent state.  Wow).[xxv]
  88. 2021 Monday Z: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– tomorrow night’s Mega-Millions Draw #1666 as of today is worth $56 million.  We will share the results of the draw tomorrow night.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Brand new week and Vladdie is here.  Let’s see what happens today…

[iv] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too, such as Bob Welch.  We thank you.

[xviii] Speaking of which, the Washington Post, aka WAPO, reports protesters met “Kooky Kamala” in Guatemala and held signs saying, “TRUMP WON!” and “GO HOME.”  Wow.  Even people in countries the Dems think are on THEIR side know the truth.  My, my, my.  God bless you, Guatemala, there is a way in which we do things legally.  Let’s do it.  Speaking of WAPO, their CEO is lambasting the Biden regime over its WAR on the FREE PRESS.  Say it ain’t so!

[xix] This POS tried to whack himself so as not to humiliate himself by having his enemies capture him alive.  However, it is much more humiliating to attempt to take one’s life and to fail in the act, especially when that same person is a big cheerleader for others to commit suicide bombings.  Loser. 

[xx] Rep. Michael Burgess, R-TX 26th congressional district told Newsmax that Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci must testify before Congress again.  The POS of won’t do it, Congressman,

[xxv] Hopefully, when Putin meets Susan Rice, uh, we mean Joe Biden, Putin won’t give slobbering Joe the ‘Engelbert Dollfuss treatment.’  

155. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JUNE 04, 2022

2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment. About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life.

  54. 2019 Tuesday: In Hong Kong and around the world, more than 100,000 people take to the streets to remember the 30th anniversary of the communist Chinese massacre of students in Tiananmen Square.  In 1989, communist tanks drove over protesting students, people seeking democratic reforms.
  55. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19, aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Bat Flu, aka the communist Chinese-engineered pandemic continues causing problems but so far has been unable to dislodge President Donald J. Trump or bring down the Western World.  Beijing, we are not going to settle for Xi-ism, no flipping way.  Here are the stats for the day around the world: 6,591,391 confirmed cases, 388,710 confirmed deaths, but 2,851,157 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the numbers: 1,910,843 confirmed cases, 109,639 confirmed deaths, but 437,251 confirmed recoveries, the last number of which would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics.
  56. 2020 Thursday A: In the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 119,807 confirmed cases, 4,422 confirmed deaths, but Governor ‘Little Gavin’ Newsom will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  In the Aloha State, here are the stats: 653 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 609 confirmed recoveries which is incredibly good.  Thank you, Governor David Ige, perhaps you can urge Gavin Newsom and Jay Inslee to do the same?  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 22,729 confirmed cases, 1,138 confirmed deaths, but much like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries which says it’s all about politics.
  57. 2020 Thursday B: U.S. Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr announces that Justice is looking into Antifa and other ‘foreign actors’ involved in the riots crippling the United States at the moment.  About time because the criminal scum must be found hiding under whatever rocks they do, rounded up, and sent to prison for life.  Harmeet Dhillon launches a lawsuit on behalf of beaten journalist Andy Ngo in Portland, Oregon, last year.   Get them, Harmeet!   Again, we must say that the majority of us writing for the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believe that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party who channels Beijing’s dark money to its various action groups such as Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Time to bring ALL of them down.
  58. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 173,301,283 confirmed cases, +406,451, 3,726,693  confirmed deaths, +9,784 and 156,279,830 confirmed recoveries, +46,930.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,191,460 confirmed cases, UP 16,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 612,202 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[viii] and 28,053,098 confirmed recoveries, UP 29,228.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]  
  59. 2021 Friday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 294,296 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 165,353 deaths  
  60. 2021 Friday 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: 3,794,217 confirmed cases, 63,393 confirmed deaths, and 2,059,372 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,329,867 confirmed cases, 36,973 confirmed deaths, and 1,970,341 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,471 confirmed cases, 501 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 441,674 confirmed cases, 5,889 confirmed deaths, and 215,260 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Missouri, home of newest Squad member: Rep. Cori “The Bit*h” Bush: they have 601,503 confirmed cases, 9,846 confirmed deaths, and 545,505 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  61. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,539 confirmed cases, 6,417 confirmed deaths, and 832,923 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country- Luxembourg, 104th country on the list, a proud country with a centuries’ old history, a: 70,182 cases of the virus, 818 confirmed deaths and 68,556 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  62. 2021 Friday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,756.39, UP 179.35 points (+0.52%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,814.59, UP 199.98 points (+1.47%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,229.89, UP 37.04 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.37 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.10 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.30 per troy oz, +3.60 (+0.31%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,841.08 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.07%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $23,300.00 per troy oz., -1,000.00 (-4.12%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., -2,500.00 (-0.41%). [xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96.     In Emirati Dirham, one greenback equals 3.67 and in Estonian Kroon, a buck equals 13.95 and in Ethiopian Birr, one dollar equals 43.19 of theirs.[xv]        
  63. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors – Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.210 per gallon, $2.857 in Florida, $3.944 in Hawaii, and $3.590 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.909.  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- Namibia: $3.343 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,367,734,381,099 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.[xix]
  64. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #74 for the so-called ‘Border Czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this extremely important job and as of yet, has not shown up to work…once.  Seems like we need a new border czar and not Willie Brown’s former bed partner.  Just saying… In other border news, reports on Newsmax say that nearly $2 billion earmarked for the border wall along the heaviest traffic sector remains unused.  Joe Biden- use this money to continue wall construction.  Now. Speaking of “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden (that tape with him talking about a 7-year-old girl looking like she’s 19 was extremely creepy and classic, classic “Cho-Mo Joe”), today, he officially ended President Donald J. Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy.
  65. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– A Chinese virologist- Dr. Lei-Meng Yan- says ‘Dr. Fauci’s leaked emails prove her claim that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu was indeed leaked from the Wuhan Institute of Virology as a majority of people around the globe now believe.’  Amen.  Dr. Fauci was sending the lab $600,000 per year to study bat viruses.  Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci now demands the Chi-Coms release the data on the bat cave patients who were the original people sickened by the Wuhan Flu.
  66. 2021 Friday H: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Advance portions of the Pentagon study into unidentified aerial (and submersible) phenomena are beginning to come out.  Initial excerpts suggest inconclusive findings stating that they could be ‘Chi-Com or Russian highly advanced craft.’  However, Lue Elizondo, the man who headed up the investigation at the Pentagon says that the report actually says the sightings of these and other unknown craft date back 70 years which confirms there is NO way either the Russians or the Chi-Coms could be responsible.  Sightings occurred for as long as human beings have walked the Earth; however, once the nuclear age commenced in the 1950s, the sightings have gone straight up (like the ‘hockey stick model’ that doofus promoting climate change uses) and only continue increasing.  (Note- the Chi-Coms have been busy stealing our (and everyone else’s) technology for decades which suggests there is no way the Beijing bullies could be responsible for this.  We seem to have a BIG PROBLEM.  Anyhow, former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says he’s ‘glad he blew the whistle on this problem and got the ball rolling.’  Thank you, senator, thank you.  We didn’t agree with you on much else, but this is a great thing you have done for our country.  
  67. 2021 Friday I: Big Tech News– Little Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook have banned President Donald J. Trump from its social media app (we closed our accounts long, long ago) for the next TWO years, meaning they think they are cutting him off from the rest of the world through the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  However, President Trump said, ‘next time he’s in the White House, there won’t be any dinners for Zuckerberg and his wife, it will be all business.’  We look forward to that time, folks.  Time to use the Sherman Antitrust Act and bust up not only Facebook but also Twitter, Instagram, and all the rest of the mind-controlling apps spying on us and canceling anyone they choose.  
  68. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the ‘graffiti all over her home is a sign of the times in the United States.’  Next the U.S. Senate GOP rejects the Biden regime’s infrastructure demand which leads to feeble old Joe rejecting their rejection.  Wow.  Moving on, yesterday, we reported that jobs created in May were something like 985,000 which was a false number- the true number was 559,000 new jobs which economists said should have been 650,000; the Republicans are ripping Joe Biden a new one over his ineptitude when it comes to being a ‘successful president.’  This man is a walking, stumbling, bumbling disaster and all we can say is ‘IF the Chi-Coms want to get in their licks, they better do it as quickly as possible because once the 2020 Election audits conclude, Joe will be selling pencils on the street corner.
  69. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Former White House counsel under the Trump administration Don McGahn testified before Congress today.  Next, Vice President Mike Pence said that “Black lives saved, not endangered, by the police.”  Next, the Pentagon says- for now- U.S. military bases still cannot fly the LGBTQIA+ flag (but how long before they do).   Elsewhere, the National Rifle Association drops claims against New York Attorney General Leticia James so the NRA can pursue other claims in Manhattan.  Meanwhile, former ambassador to the United States from Israel- Michael Oren- says, ‘it’s always premature to eulogize Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.’  Amen.
  70. 2021 Friday L: Business News– Nonfungible Tokens- so-called NFT sales have fallen by 90-percent as the market implodes.  NFTs are cryptographic assets on blockchain that in the era of cryptocurrencies and other things that don’t exist in the REAL world are things hucksters and shysters peddle to unsuspecting morons wanting to be COOL.  (Note- NFTs are a bogus thing such as digital art and other high-tech crap Millennials love.  Screw ‘em).
  71. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Draw #1665 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 04, 30, 34, 41, 64, and Mega 08.  Stay tuned for further details.  Out of 58,203 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $427 apiece.
  72. 2022 Saturday: Let’s see what corruption the Democrats and their bosses in Beijing are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys would be on tour for the next several years while they were trying to get Brian Wilson out of the doldrums of mental illness and back to being a functioning member of the group.  Thus, the record label began creating some phenomenal repackaging of the group’s earlier hits.  “Endless Summer” came out on June 24, 1974 and featured a rollicking collection of tunes from 1963 to 1965.  Back in the day, this was a double LP and catapulted the band back to popularity and sales as old fans who abandoned them returned and new fans proclaimed a ‘collective wow’ what with all the fun summer songs about surfin,’ girls, and hot rods.  As the Vietnam War sputtered to a close and Watergate was in the history books, everyone wanted to have a fun time once again and with this album, they could and did.  Seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, And ‘Refugees’ News- News reports today say that ‘illegal aliens released from custody into the interior of the United States are now out there panhandling as they have no resources.’ Wow. Hopefully, as these people weaken from malnutrition and lack of water, they will begin self-deporting. What is clear is that the American people are not going to come to their aid. Vamanos mojados! (Note- a ‘purge’ might be coming soon…)

  73. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ 73rd day in this job and as of yet, she is a NO-SHOW.  Perhaps it’s duties as the new ‘equity czar’ (or whatever you want to call it) that are interfering with her fulfillment of her pre-existing duties.  We shall see.  Customs and Border Patrol says that for the month of April 17-thousand illegal alien brats were apprehended.  We say: load them onto planes, trains, buses, and freighters and send them back to Tegucigalpa and let the Central Americans sort them out.  Enough is enough.  Anyhow, One America News reports the following statistics: (1) Cost of illegal aliens to the American people for today: $527,980,864.  (2) Number of illegal aliens who have crossed just in 2021: 1,723,907.  (3) Total Cost of caring for illegal aliens this year alone: $168,199,241,728.  Finally, (4) Total number of illegals in the United States as of today (One America News count): 35,723,908.  (Note- since this blog began in 2009, we suggested there were anywhere between 35-50 million illegals in the country back then; now, we suspect that number is closer to 55-85 million illegal aliens sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers.  They clog our schools, our hospitals, deplete our food banks, reap benefits to which the scum are not entitled, drive up rents, lower wages, and deplete jobs meant for Americans.  This simply must stop, and it must stop now.  Everyone- turn illegal aliens over to law enforcement or deal with them yourselves.
  74. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, And ‘Refugees’ News– News reports today say that ‘illegal aliens released from custody into the interior of the United States are now out there panhandling as they have no resources.’  Wow.  Hopefully, as these people weaken from malnutrition and lack of water, they will begin self-deporting.  What is clear is that the American people are not going to come to their aid.  Vamanos mojados!  (Note- a ‘purge’ might be coming soon…)
  75. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– More than 10,000 Olympics volunteers have quit.  However, organizers of the Tokyo Summer Olympics claim they will go on as scheduled which is in two months.  Meanwhile, we learned today that the Chi-Coms are paying American newspapers to publish their propaganda.  Wow.  We knew newspapers were having a hell of a time staying in business due to their far-left politics but had no idea they would sell our country out to Beijing.  Wow again.  Elsewhere, Georgia gubernatorial candidate Vernon Jones says that ‘the U.S. must stand with Israel and with Jewish Americans.’
  76. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– As the emails of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci continue hitting the news cycle, there is increasing demand for the political hack to come before Congress and answer questions over his ties to the Wuhan Institute of Virology, his cover-up of the Chi-Coms’ gain of function studies with the bat viruses, and his actions since the pandemic began.  Sadly- for him- the American people now know that he is little more than a pollical operative who could have helped President Donald J. Trump negate the pandemic in the U.S. sooner than he was able to and note- he acted unilaterally extremely fast to halt the inflow of people from communist China and from Europe.  “Phony Tony” has much for which to answer and as the highest-paid bureaucrat in Washington, D.C., he must start answering questions NOW.
  77. 2021 Thursday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Now that we have a usurper in the White House, medical science now feels it’s okay to tell the American people that- God forbid!- Hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, increases COVID-19 survival rates by 100-percent (which we already knew) and that it both shortens the length of the illness and its severity.   In other news, former Florida Rep. and current director for the American Center for Political Leadership Dennis Ross says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has done more than anyone else to politicize the Xi Jinping Bat Flu than anyone else in the United States.  Regarding little “Phony Tony,” President Donald J. Trump says that with ‘Fauci exposed, the Chi-Coms owe the United States alone $10 trillion for causing the pandemic.’  Amen.  Elsewhere, Francis Collins, director of the National Institute of Health, is striving to cover his ass by calling for a probe into what the Chi-Coms at the Wuhan Institute of Virology knew and when did they know it?  Finally, “Phony Tony” says that ‘President Donald J. Trump deserves credit for the Chi-Vi vaccines but so do other presidents.’  What?  What other presidents had a hand in Operation Warp Speed?
  78. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senator Shelley Moore Capito, R-W. Va, continues meeting with the Biden regime to negotiate an infrastructure deal.  “Mumbling, Stumbling Old Joe” still demands ONE TRILLION DOLLARS FOR INFRASTRUCTURE (so says Barack Obama’s voice in his earpiece) but claims he will lower his demand for a 28-percent tax on corporations.  (Note- the Bidenistas, however, are hard at work at getting the G7 to agree to a global tax on corporations of around 28-percent so this is a bogus area of negotiation).   In other regime news, Joe Biden still hasn’t appointed permanent leaders to oversee BIG TECH.  (Note- he will pick some loser seeing as how BIG TECH owns the Biden regime).  Next, the regime has ordered NO investment in Chi-Com firms connected to the Chinese Communist Party, the Chi-Com military, or surveillance.[xxi] 
  79. 2021 Thursday L: Business News– A recent study says that ‘unemployment claims in Florida are down 97-percent from last year.’  You go, Florida, you go.  Speaking of unemployment across the country, last week, first time filings for jobless benefits dropped to 385,000.  Meanwhile, initial reports say the U.S. added 985,000 jobs in May.  Excellent.  Question- are they ‘hamburger-flipper jobs?’  Democrats always deride those sorts of jobs when Republicans are in the White House.  Elsewhere, Dogecoin price jumps amid Coinbase debut what with Dogecoin being the 6th most valuable cryptocurrency.
  80. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signs into law a $101 billion spending bill for Florida in 2022.  Next, extremely popular U.S. Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, announced today that he is going to seek a second term.  Congratulations.  Speaking of Louisiana, state lawmakers pass a bill allowing its citizens to conceal carry handguns sans a license.  The bill will move to the desk of Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA. Moving on, President Donald J. Trump is going to be the headliner at North Carolina’s GOP convention and will speak on Saturday, June 5, 2021, in Greenville.  Meanwhile, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the Biden regime’s agenda will help the GOP retake both houses of Congress in 2022.  (Note- this is why the regime wants to legalize 11 million new illegal aliens as citizens).  Speaking of Rep. Mace, conservative icon Todd Starnes says of Mace that Snopes labeled the recent attack on the Rep.’s home a ‘rumor.’  Wow.
  81. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– A new poll says that a majority of Americans support the DEATH PENALTY.  Next, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, says of the U.S. House of Representatives dictate that ‘everyone must wear a mask’ as being NOTHING but political theater.  Elsewhere, things just keep piling on: former Rep. Katie Hill, DS-CA 25th congressional district, finds herself forced by a judge to pay $219 thousand in legal fees over a revenge porn case.  As you recall, Rep. Hill was forced to relinquish her seat after being involved in various sexual liaisons with numerous people including campaign staffers and office staffers.  Poor Katie.  Boohoo.  In other Democrat loser news, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, won a lawsuit lodged against him over his totalitarian lockdowns and restrictions in the Empire State.  However, the courts have ordered California to pay $2 million in damages for its harsh lockdowns of Golden State churches.   Elsewhere, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, says it’s a ‘national disgrace to fly the Black Lives Matter flag at U.S. embassies around the world.’  Finally, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says the Biden regime’s dictate of NO fireworks at Mt. Rushmore this July 4, 2021, is because the ‘left hates celebrating America.’  Amen.
  82. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is co-sponsoring the “Only Old Glory Act” that will ban all other flags- like the LGBTQIA+ flag, the Black Lives Matter flags, and other flags at ALL U.S. government buildings, embassies, and other structures around the world and in the country.  In other news, we continue hearing reports that actor Matthew McConaughey might run for governor of Texas, but NO one knows for what he stands.  HOW ABOUT TELLING THE WORLD WTF YOU STAND FOR, BOY?  Meanwhile, we hear a new report that says that AFTER Rep. Liz Cheney, R-WY at large district, had to spend $58,000 on private security, she was so afraid of Trump supporters.  Folks, recall this woman from office NOW.   Finally, U.S. Postmaster General Louis DeJoy has confirmed that he is the subject of an FBI investigation (2020 Elections bull crap) and denies any wrongdoing.  
  83. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– Texas lawmakers canceled Dallas Mavericks’ owner Mark Cuban’s anti-National Anthem kibosh.  Cuban is a POS and what’s more, he should move his Karl Marx-loving ass to Beijing where they will gladly take this reprobate loser in and make him one of theirs.  Speaking of Beijing- which we seem to do all the time now- Rep. Jim Hagedorn, R-MN 1st congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci could very well be ‘covering up for the Chi-Coms when it comes to the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu and what hand- if any- the political hack had in loosing it upon the world.  Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, won a challenge to campaign reimbursement rules.  A three-judge panel said it’s okay for a candidate to use campaign contributions to reimburse personal money he put into his political campaign.  Democrats are wailing and sniveling over this BIG WIN!
  84. 2021 Thursday Q: Miscellaneous News I–  One of the last- IF not the last- attorney on the so-called “Dream Team” involved in the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial back in 1995, F. Lee Bailey, died today at age 87.  Over the course of his lifetime, he defended numerous BIG-NAME personalities and celebrities.  Next, gay journalist Andy Ngo snuck into his hometown of Portland, Oregon, and got yet another beat-down from Antifa.  He was able to seek refuge in a hotel while a howling mob of slavering lunatics tried to get in to lynch the dumb bastard.  YOU can’t go home, Andy, these people want to KILL YOU.  Elsewhere, the Food and Drug Administration is encouraging the American people NOT to eat cicadas (who the hell is eating flipping bugs- we aren’t the Chi-Coms) if one is allergic to seafood.  (Note- anyone who eats insects in this country should be scooped up and deported to communist China).  
  85. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Supreme Court News– For the first time since being seated on the U.S. Supreme Court, newest Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett sided against Associate Justice Clarence Thomas.  The case concerning computer law, namely a Georgia law enforcement officer Sgt. Nathan Van Buren was in trouble for violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act of 1986 in that he was paid money to do a search on a license plate using his police department computer.  Lower courts said what he did was a violation of not just state law but federal law and thus his case eventually made its way to SCOTUS.   Coney not only joined in the 6-3 decision but also wrote the majority opinion.  The three justices in opposition were Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito. 
  86. 2021 Thursday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– two things- one we heard yesterday and one today.  Yesterday, we learned that enfeebled Robert S. Mueller III, chief ankle-biting dog for the Democrats, is going to teach a course on the BOGUS Trump-Russia collusion narrative at the University of Virginia School of Law.  What a farce.  Today, we learned that Rep. Alexandria “Baby Evita” Ocasio-Cortez, aka the Fly, aka Sandy Cortez (birthname), CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district, is bitching and moaning about the condition of her pobrecita abuelita’s home in Puerto Rico.  Apparently, the place is a DUMP, and the little communist is blaming President Donald J. Trump for not making things ‘right’ after Hurricane Maria.  As Greg Kelly on Newsmax so rightly pointed out, “Girl, you are in Congress, you own a Tesla (rental most likely), and there are nearly 14 Home Depot stores across the island so get your lazy, hypocritical butt down there and fix her home yourself.’  (We augmented his words with ours).  Look, this is how communists are- they blame everyone else for their wrongdoings, misdoings, mistakes, you name it, they blame it (read George Orwell’s “Animal Farm”).  Look, “Fly,” shut the hell up and send your granny some money.  
  87. 2021 Thursday T: The Wrap-Up– First, a Singapore-flagged vessel carrying hazardous chemicals has broken up off the coast of Sri Lanka.  There goes their tourism industry.  In other news, the intersection where George Floyd died in Minneapolis has been reopened.  Thus, it would appear that ‘George Floyd Square’ is no mas.  Ah, well, c’est la vie.  Next, as ‘vacation season’ arrives in the era of COVID-19, everything is going up besides the price of gasoline.  Rentals and airlines tickets and everything else associated with Americans enjoying themselves is going up, up, and up thanks to the bumbling ineptitude of the Biden regime.
  88. 2022 Friday: What could be going on today?  Stick around and find out along with us.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 19, 1973, the Beach Boys released perhaps one of the best live albums of the decade, “The Beach Boys In Concert.”  The live lineup features Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (electric piano and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals), augmented by their supporting cast of Billy Hinsche (guitar, keyboards), Ed Carter (bass), Robin Kenyatta (woodwinds), Carl Muñoz (keyboards), and Mike Kowalski (drums and percussion).  From start to finish, this album demonstrates what a powerful live act the Beach Boys became in the early-to-mid 1970s.  We can remember seeing them in downtown Bakersfield, California, around this time and the crowd was going insane from the opening riffs of “Sail On Sailor” to the closer, “Fun, Fun, Fun.”  Every song one loves and then some are included here.  We remember back in the day a bootleg Beach Boys album that came out around the time “Surf’s Up” did, entitled, “Re-Surfin’ USA.”  It is too bad that those songs were not added to this in a beefed-up version because that album was amazing being in superb sound quality.  Ah, well, we hope that everyone will seek this one out wherever you shop for the finest in music and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  62. 2020 Tuesday: Neil Cavuto is still expressing outrage as are numerous other liberal talking heads and pundits due to him being unashamed that he is taking hydroxychloroquine sulfate as a preventative against the Chinese Virus.  Speaking of COVID-19, here are the stats for the world: 4,893,195 number of confirmed cases, 322,861 confirmed deaths, but 1,686,487 confirmed recoveries which is good.   In the United States, we have 1,558,631 confirmed cases, 92,258 confirmed deaths, but 297,153 confirmed recoveries which again is great.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, we begin with California first: 81,795 number of confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries since Gov.

Ige.  Finally, we have Washington state where they have a crackpot governor talking about ‘conspiracies from the planet Pluto,’ here are the stats: 18,811 number of confirmed cases, 1,031 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries due to the state not reporting them.  Meanwhile, communist China continues misreporting the statistics but sources within Hong Kong continue getting the truth out and the numbers are 10-15-percent higher than what Beijing is reporting.  Go figure.  
  63. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 165,457,298 confirmed cases, +571,756, 3,429,560  confirmed deaths, +11,341 and 145,664,210 confirmed recoveries, +65,660.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,795,693 confirmed cases, UP 23,533 from yesterday’s reporting, 601,879 confirmed deaths, UP 565,[viii] and 27,295,523 confirmed recoveries, UP 48,317.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  64. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, There Have Been 285,552 Chi-Vi Deaths In The United States- President Biden, 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 174,057 deaths.     
  65. 2021 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: 3,772,275 confirmed cases, 62,754 confirmed deaths, and 2,014,099 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,299,596 confirmed cases, 36,287 confirmed deaths, and 1,903,074 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: 426,465 confirmed cases, 5,713 confirmed deaths, and 208,961 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Texas: they have 2,937,461 confirmed cases, 51,298 confirmed deaths, and 2,809,993 confirmed recoveries.[x]    
  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.

124. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, MAY 04, 2022

1954 Tuesday A: The attempt to reach Dien Bien Phu by French Union forces fighting from the south in Operation Condor had stalled. A contingency plan- Operation Albatross had already been discussed, a breakout of the 2,000-3,000 fittest men from Dien Bien Phu and Isabelle, but sadly for the garrison, it was slated to May 15 when additional air support and artillery could provide some semblance of aid as to help those breaking out heading to the south.

  64. 2020 Monday: Well, it keeps getting better: we now know we have “Murder Hornets” in the Pacific Northwest.  Although some claim Japan is their homeland, experts now tell us it is communist China where these monstrous insects call home.  Coincidence?  You are the judge.  COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis update: confirmed cases around the world: 3,582,469, confirmed deaths are 251,365, but confirmed recoveries are 1,162,563 so things are looking better.  As for the United States, confirmed cases are 1,201,101, confirmed deaths are 69,579, and confirmed recoveries are 159,789.  In Hawaii, we have 621 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths but 548 confirmed recoveries.  Yet, in the Islands, we live under the authoritarianism of Governor David Ige.  Colleagues in California report 55,657 confirmed cases, 2,254 confirmed deaths and NO- we repeat- NO numbers for confirmed recoveries.  What are you hiding, Gov. Gavin Newsom?  Colleagues up in Washington state report 15,462 confirmed cases what with confirmed deaths at 841 and- like California- NO recovery confirmation numbers.  Gov. Jay Inslee, what are YOU hiding (asks Chef Vladimir?)?

  66. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 277,565 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 240.56 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,968 deaths.

  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.050 per gallon, $2.834 in Florida, $3.796 in Hawaii, and $3.488 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New Mexico: $2.879.  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- Malaysian: $1.887 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,247,962,760,073 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.
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is visiting the Ukraine today.[xviii]   Next, Iran confirms the authenticity of tape where Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry[xix] commits various Logan Act violations by sharing with the Iranians at least, we repeat- at least– 200 separate incidences of the Mossad carrying out surreptitious activities against Iranian interests in the hellhole of Syria.  In other news related to overseas activities, former Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller- part of the Trump administration- is urging the Biden administration NOT to let its guard down regarding the use of directed-energy weapons on U.S. personnel worldwide.  He calls it ‘an act of war’ and suggests that even if it’s ‘nonlethal,’ we owe it to our people to investigate so as to be better protected in the future.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Covid-19 Updates And Additional Information– First, early information is suggesting that the COVID-19-caused pandemic shutdowns of cities may be in the preliminary stages of reversal.  Next, Pfizer seeks full clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for the use of its Chi-Vi vaccine for everyone.  Elsewhere, U.S. states are not ordering their full allotments of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu over a lessening demand for the questionable inoculations.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Joe Biden Regime News I–   We learn today that thanks to Joe Biden being president (well, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘president’), the death tax is going to rise to 40-61-percent meaning their family’s tragedy will also see financial rape of the grieving survivors.  Wow.  Thank you, President Obama, uh, we mean, “El Presidente Joe Biden.”   Meanwhile, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, DS, says the regime is moving ahead with reuniting illegal alien families torn asunder by the Trump administration.   Elsewhere, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley is dropping his opposition to changes in sexual assault policies.  Wow.  Sell-out.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he is considering a slick budgetary maneuver whereby he can legalize tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of our country.  Gee whiz, thank you, Chuckie, thank you.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– the House GOP is calling for an oversight hearing on the Capitol Hill Police Department and their actions on FALSE FLAG OPERATION DAY on January 06, 2021.  Next, GOP lawmakers seek a probe of Amazon’s Jedi contract.   Elsewhere, the GOP is adding an additional 10 Democrat-held congressional seats deemed to be vulnerable in 2022.  (Note- get rid of YOUR RINO problem, too, Republicans).  Moving on, UNC Chapel Hill has bestowed a professorship on the clown that created the 1619 ‘Project,’ (a bullshit propaganda project with which to wail and cry and to point fingers at the evil whiteys)[xx].  In other news, former Governor Charlie Crist, RINO-FL-turned Democrat Congressman, 13th congressional district, is making another run for the gubernatorial mansion.  Loser.  Finally, Eric Trump says there is NO way that fuddled old Joe Biden can hold a candle to his father’s energy on the job.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– We learned today that Newsmax settled a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada, that they apologized and agreed to stop questioning the 2020 Presidential Election’s veracity.  One America News, however, won’t back down for which, we congratulate them.  However, if Canada WON’T use Dominion Voting Systems nor Smartmatic Software in their own elections, what does that say about their trustworthiness and honesty?  Not very much.  Speaking of the untrustworthy, it now appears that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out as GOP Conference Chair by the end of the month.  This woman and the other corrupt Republicans that leapt onto the President Donald J. Trump impeachment vote as showing their virtue ALL must lose their seats.  Period.  She needs to join the Democrats of which she truly is one…finally, the Justice Department has been ordered to release the memo cited by then-U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr as to why there was no charge of obstruction launched against President Donald J. Trump when feeble old Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III concluded his ginned-up, bogus investigation into the 45th president.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The attorney for convicted murderer and former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has filed for a new trial now that we learn the jurors were going to convict him on ALL counts no matter what which is not justice but a kangaroo court.  The judge in the case pointed out that thanks to people like that dingbat from California, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, going there and rabble rousing the lynch mob outside the courthouse every day, that her actions put the entire outcome of the trial in jeopardy.  We expect to see Chauvin win a new trial, be acquitted, and get his old job back.  Boo-yeah!
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– stick around for the results on tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1656 with a pot of $345 million available to some lucky winner…here are the results: 04, 27, 32, 57, 63, and Mega 22.  Out of 136,836 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $947,704.

  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.

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.

[viii] We are hopeful we will present the music of the Band and of its individual members sometime in 2024-2025.  Great music by a superb band

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

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

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

  78. 2021 Monday F: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS– The state of Arizona is suing the ‘Biden administration’ over its flawed border policies.  They are suing the corrupt regime on environmental grounds as the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens pouring across the southern frontier are leaving heaps of garbage, fecal matter, urine, discarded clothing, condoms, beverage containers, food wrappers, and all sorts of other garbage that is destroying the pristine environment along the Arizona-Mexico border.  Next, President Joe Biden taps two openly hostile critics of President Donald J. Trump to lead key agencies.  First, he picks Tucson, Arizona’s chief of police, Chris Magnus to lead Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Ur Jaddou to head U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  Both of these POS will push open borders policies.  Speaking of open borders, today is Day 19 that Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris has failed to hold a press conference so she can share her ideas for fixing the southern border crisis.   
  79. 2021 Monday G: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS II– The first family’s dog, Major, is scheduled to get another round of training for all the people he has bitten since entering the White House.  What more proof does one need that the dog is a prop for a feeble old coot like President Joe Biden?  Next, as the White House continues trying to convince the American people that another $2 trillion bill- this one, the INFRASTRUCTURE FIASCO BILL[xv]– is somehow good for them, Biden’s henchmen are going to target the home states of GOP leaders for a concerted push.  (Note- Joe, we don’t want this POS bill.  What you are going to do is that borrowing money from our enemies- that’s right- I flipping said it- the Chinese- you are going to allow them to become de facto owners of U.S. businesses and landlords of the American people.  Chef Kilgore).   Meanwhile, we learn today that RINO wife of the late Senator John S. McCain- Cindy- could get an ambassadorship to the United Nations Food Program.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!  Big flipping deal.   Finally, President Joe Biden is going to nominate former Pentagon employee Christine Wormuth to become the U.S. Army secretary.  If she gets the gig, she will become the first woman to hold this position.  YOU couldn’t find a tranny for secretary of the Army, Joe?
  80. 2021 Monday H: POLITICAL NEWS I– Fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, is peeved today at her Chief Operating Officer Tricia Foster basically told her boss to ‘go f**k herself’ by taking her family to Florida to vacation during spring break and then possessing the chutzpah to post photos of her vacation to online social media sites.  According to Herr Whitmer, NO one in Michigan government is to disobey her by going to the EVIL, COVID-19-infested Florida.  Oh, well.  We predict Governor Whitmer is going to face a Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu moment when the citizens of her state drag that Frankenstein-headed b***h (the only thing she’s missing are the bolts in her neck) and her family out and liquidate them.   This is the fate of ALL dictators.[xvi]  In other news, former DNI John Ratcliffe says that ‘Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian connections and his laptop are NOT Russian disinformation.’ 
  81. 2021 Monday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEA NEWS– the Iranians are running around jabbering and swearing over the recent BLACKOUT that befell their main nuclear facility in Natanz.  Israel, if YOU are going to f**k with these scumbags, how about setting a chain reaction off within the program so the entire country blows the hell up?  Now, that would be something we would all love to see.  Meanwhile, the ‘Biden administration’ is negotiating with Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (Trump already did this) to obtain their help in stopping the tidal wave of illegal aliens flooding from the three Central American countries through Mexico and into the U.S.  We believe we should militarize the southern border and throw back every wave of illegals invading our country.
  82. 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– After a traffic stop goes awry in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, people are criticizing the moron judge in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd because with all the problems that have occurred in the area as well as across the country because he did not sequester the jury in this case.   Next, New York State continues to forge ahead with its incredibly STUPID plan of giving checks as high as $15,600 apiece to illegal aliens who may have been affected by the ‘VID when U.S. citizens have lost homes, businesses, and many of them are living out on the streets.  Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the “Gropin’ Gov” must go now.  In other news, Victor Davis Hanson says that ‘all organizations and institutions have all gone WOKE.’ 
  83. 2021 Monday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– President Donald J. Trump says it is imperative that the GOP reclaims both the House and Senate in 2022.   Elsewhere, following the accidental shooting death of a young black man in Minnesota last night, three counties are placed under curfew and the National Guard is now patrolling the streets.  Police in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota (see previous), said that the female officer who shot 20-year-old Duante Wright thought she was drawing her taser as he sought to flee and instead shot him.   In other curious news, the U.S. is warning the People’s Republic of China NOT to make a move on Taiwan.  We shall see.  Russia in the Ukraine, Iran flexing its muscles, and North Korea going mum, no one knows what the heck is going to happen.  Finally, as the volcano continues erupting on St. Vincent, ferries are taking people away from the island BUT ONLY if they have vaccinations for the Chi-Vi.  We guess loads of people are going to die.  WTF?
  84. 2021 Monday L: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– Taiwan reports that the Chinese flew 25 warplanes into their airspace earlier today.  Unlike the time when Chinese leader Hu Jintao was reaching out to Taiwan’s leadership, it’s clear that Xi Jinping is pulling a full-on Adolf Hitler, trying to intimidate neighboring countries around the borders of the People’s Republic of Chi-Com Land or actively trying to subvert them so as to force them into the fold.   Taiwan’s air defenses locked onto the PRC warplanes while tracker planes flew along with them.  War is coming, folks, war is coming, and we have, uh, President Joe Biden?  WTF!
  85. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 500,813,931 confirmed cases, +1,169,664, 6,209,098 confirmed deaths, +3,580 and 450,867,362 confirmed recoveries, +1,448,464.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 563,722 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 199,057 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 447 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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