130. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2022

1943 Monday: The coming late spring-early summer offensive in the Soviet Union is getting in motion. Operation Citadel- the attack on the Kursk Salient in the Ukraine- has been given the go-ahead by Hitler himself even though German intelligence assets have told the Fuhrer that the Soviets have established a massive defense in depth. This will be the greatest clash of armor and tactical aircraft the world has ever seen.

  62. 2008 Saturday: Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, takes the lead in the superdelegate count- a very peculiar thing the Democrats have to steal nominations in presidential elections for their chosen candidate.  The first-term Illinois senator is smoking Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY.

  64. 2010 Monday: Solicitor General Elena Kagan is the youngest nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court and the third woman.  Elsewhere, jihadists carry out a wave of suicide attacks across Iraq, blowing up at least 102 unsuspecting souls and injuring more than 200.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace.’

  68. 2014 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Brazilian police distribute pamphlets to World Cup visitors with instructions on how to behave in the event of a robbery; law enforcement means the ‘advice’ to protect victims from injury or death during crime.

  71. 2017 Wednesday: To the delight of environmentalists everywhere, the U.S. Geological Service releases a study claiming that some glaciers in Montana have receded by 85-percent over the past half-century.  No wonder imbeciles such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the world is coming to an end soon.  Sadly, the Sun is the sole driver of all climatic changes throughout the entire Solar System.  Conversation and fighting pollution is indeed important but the Earth- and other planets- have all gone through periods of climate change throughout the history of said Solar system.  Meanwhile, to the ‘horror’ of Democrats, President Donald J. Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).
  72. 2018 Thursday: Following Iran firing missiles into Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria, the IDF lights up Iranian targets in Syria with 70 missiles, blowing up numerous installations and other military infrastructure.  Of course, Iran claims Israel started the fight.

  76. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,304 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, the 46th president is shy 182,305 deaths.      
  77. 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: 3,759,618 confirmed cases, 62,314 confirmed deaths, and 2,003,503 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,272,102 confirmed cases, 35,785 confirmed deaths, and 1,853,131 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,267 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Northern Marianas Islands, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands become states: they have 170 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[x]

  79. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,742.82, DOWN 34.92 points (-0.10%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,401.86, DOWN 350.38 points (-2.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.43, DOWN 44.17 points (-1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.85 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.011%).  The price of GOLD is $1,835.50 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.44%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,249.50 per troy oz, -16.00 (-1.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,952.91 per troy oz, +26.40 (+0.90%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 15.18 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, a buck equals 10,154.00 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.33 of theirs.[xv]       
  80. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  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- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 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.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by the Beach Boys- “Surfin’ USA”- came out on March 25, 1963, and featured the same lineup of Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals).  This album continued the new group’s rise to the top via tunes such as the title track, “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Shut Down.”  The Beach Boys were not content to ride the wave with just one genre of music, i.e., surf music, as numerous copycats were jumping aboard the surf train.  They also were delving into their love of hot rods, hot chicks, and wild times in So-Cal.  Hawthorne, California, would never be the same nor would the world.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[xix] Here is what WE think: like the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico blew up back in 2010, at the time many of us had our suspicions that the Obama-Biden administration had some foreknowledge of that event and used to shut down offshore oil drilling for years.  They shut down drilling off our coasts but allowed the rigs to relocate off the coast of Brazil to drill for oil down there.  Likewise, we think the Russian-backed Darkside hacking group shut this extremely important pipeline so as (1) to cut the amount of oil in the country; (2) to drive up the costs of oil and oil-based products; and (3) to help hasten the bullshit Green New Deal through to being.  Mark our words- Olaf Bologolo. 

125. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MAY 05, 2022

1954 Wednesday: At Dien Bien Phu, French troops fighting at Claudine 5 are shocked to see a platoon of Moroccan soldiers cut their way through the wire and cross over to surrender to the enemy. The People’s Army immediately launched attacks on this site which cost the French Foreign Legionnaires at least seven men. Once the attack was repulsed through superior force of arms, the remaining Moroccan troops were stripped of their weapons and propelled to join other deserters clustering around the Nam Youm River.

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 198

125. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MAY 05, 2022:

Cinco de Mayo (fake ‘Mexican holiday’[i]); Yom Ha’atzmaut; National Day of Prayer and West Virginia Day of Prayer

Acting U.S. Secretary for Homeland Security David Pekoske; Famed Chef and Culinary Genius James Beard; Black Sabbath featuring Bill Ward, Family featuring Jim King, and the Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship featuring Papa John Creach:

  1. 1045 Monday: The reign of the 148th Roman Catholic Pope Gregory V commences today.  He would lead all of Christendom from today until December 20, 1046.
  2. 1260 Wednesday: Kublai Khan becomes ruler of the Mongol Empire on this date.
  3. 1430 Wednesday: The citizens of Speyer, Germany, expel their Jewish citizens.
  4. 1494 Saturday: On his second voyage to the New World, Christopher Columbus sights the Caribbean island of Jamaica, which he named Santa Gloria.
  5. 1762 Wednesday: Russia and East Prussia sign a treaty of peace.
  6. 1798 Saturday: U.S. Secretary of War William McHenry ordered that the USS Constitution be made ready for sea.  The navy launched the frigate on October 21, 1797, but had never put it to sea.  
  7. 1813 Wednesday: Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard considered the father of existentialism, was born in Copenhagen.

  13. 1865 Friday: With the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, slavery was no more.  What is important to note is that the Republican Party is the creator and proponent of this amendment, not the Democrats who more than 157 years later claim to be the defenders and protectors of black Americans.  No, the Dems are the party of slavery, of the KKK, of burning crosses, of prison farms, of ‘separate but equal,’ red-lining, discrimination, the destruction of the black family.  The Democrats are the slave-holders who have exchanged their black slaves to lives dependent upon welfare while making the illegal aliens their new class of slaves, perpetual low-wage slaves only valued at election time.  NEVER permit the Democrats to lie to YOU that they and ONLY they are the defenders of black Americans. 
  14. 1877 Saturday: To avoid harassment from the United States Army under the command of Colonel Nelson Miles, Sitting Bull leads his band of Lakota people into Canada.

  20. 1904 Thursday: Pitcher Cy Young of the Boston Red Sox pitched the third perfect game in the major leagues against the Philadelphia Athletics.  It was the FIRST perfect game under modern rules.
  21. 1908 Tuesday: The Great White (U.S.) Fleet arrives in San Francisco, California.
  22. 1912 Sunday: Soviet Communist Party newspaper Pravda commences publication.
  23. 1916 Friday: To restore order and to protect American interests, U.S. Marines invade the Caribbean nation of the Dominican Republic and remain there until 1924.

  25. 1920 Wednesday: Democratic President Woodrow Wilson outlaws the Communist Labor Party in the U.S.  Thank God, he did something right.  A century later, the Democratic Party has become the ‘Communist Labor Party.’  He must be rolling over in his grave.

  30. 1942 Tuesday: Wartime sugar rationing commenced in the United States on this date.  Meanwhile, Jim King, future horn player for the English rock band, Family[v], was born in Kettering, Northamptonshire, UK, on this date.  He provided part of the distinctive sound of the early band. 
  31. 1944 Friday: The Red Army launches its offensive against Sebastopol in Nazi-occupied Crimea.  The Germans cling to the city like rats with many of their Rumanian allies throwing down their weapons and surrendering- the Rumanians know the jig is up whereas the Germans will fight as long as possible to delay the Red Army’s progress.  Meanwhile, the British release Mahatma Gandhi from prison.
  32. 1945 Saturday: The Allies liberate Mauthausen Concentration Camp.  Meanwhile, in the only fatal attack of its kind during World War II, a Japanese balloon bomb exploded on Gearhart Mountain in Oregon, killing the pregnant wife of a minister and five children.  Elsewhere, as the German surrender began to go into effect, the Allies liberated Denmark and the Netherlands.
  33. 1947 Monday: Future drummer with Black Sabbath[vi]—Bill Ward—is born in Aston, Birmingham, UK, on this date.  Ward would perform with the band throughout the 1970s and then off and on throughout the 1980s and 1990s, and even beyond.
  34. 1954 Wednesday: At Dien Bien Phu, French troops fighting at Claudine 5 are shocked to see a platoon of Moroccan soldiers cut their way through the wire and cross over to surrender to the enemy.  The People’s Army immediately launched attacks on this site which cost the French Foreign Legionnaires at least seven men.  Once the attack was repulsed through superior force of arms, the remaining Moroccan troops were stripped of their weapons and propelled to join other deserters clustering around the Nam Youm River.  These so-called ‘internal deserters’ were men who were unable to sustain the fight and could no longer follow orders.  They lurked in wrecked aircraft and came out at night to compete for air-dropped supplies.  Morale is flagging within the base.[vii]
  35. 1955 Thursday: West Germany became a fully sovereign state.  Meanwhile, the baseball musical, “Damn Yankees” opened on Broadway.  Elsewhere, in Meridien, Connecticut, future Acting U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske is born.  A member of no declared political party, he would serve under President Joe Biden from January 20, 2021, to February 02, 2021.

  37. 1965 Wednesday: The first large-scale U.S. Army ground units arrive in South Vietnam to aid the government of that nation by destroying the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese main force units.

  47. 2003 Monday: Searchers using dogs and heavy equipment went from one crumbled home to another after tornado-packed storms flattened communities in four Midwestern states.  Meanwhile, in Colombia, a botched rescue attempt resulted in the deaths of a state governor, former defense minister and eight other hostages being held by rebels; three hostages survived.  Finally, Walter Sisulu, the quiet giant of South Africa’s anti-apartheid struggle for five decades died in Johannesburg at age 90. 
  48. 2008 Monday: Three men underwent arrest and beating by Philadelphia police officers after a vehicle chase in a scene videotaped by a WTXF-TV news helicopter.  A jury later acquitted the men of attempted murder and all other charges stemming from a shooting that led to their arrests; four of the 18 police officers at the scene suffered firing while several others underwent disciplinary reviews.   Elsewhere, on the New York Mercantile Exchange, U.S. oil futures contracts hit the incredible amount of $122 per barrel.

  50. 2010 Wednesday: Off the coast of East Africa- 500 miles, no less- Somali pirates seize control of a Russian oil tanker Moscow University with a crew of 23 souls aboard.  Not good.  We suspect the Russians are going to light them up.
  51. 2011 Thursday: Across Syria as protests continue to get out of control, the Syrian government begins mobilizing more troops and firing up the engines of their tanks.  They will proceed to various hotspots and put an end to this stupidity.   In some of the towns and cities, anti-government thugs have even toppled statues commemorating President Bashar al-Assad’s father, the founder of the modern country which is outrageous.
  52. 2012 Saturday: The moon forms a super moon as it gets the closest to the earth for the year.  Meanwhile, five terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, including 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad appear before a military tribunal.  More than a decade later, these same POS will still be there awaiting trial.  WTF?
  53. 2013 Sunday: The world’s first plastic gun, produced by a 3-D printer by Defense Distributed, test-fires successfully in Austin, Texas; this leads security officials to voice fear that plastic weapons would not be detected at airport screenings, leading to acts of terrorism.   Elsewhere, former U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, seriously wounded in a 2011 shooting at a Tucson, Arizona, shopping mall, received the 2013 Profile in Courage award at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston.

  57. 2017 Friday: Effective at midnight, an agreement reached by Russia, Turkey, and Iran will establish a ‘safe zone’ in northern Syria through which NO military aircraft will navigate, including American warplanes.  The ‘safe zone’ will also prohibit military action on the ground.   The United Nations is ecstatic that some semblance of civilization will be restored although Syrian military opposition and jihadists such as ISIS refuse to acknowledge or accept.
  58. 2018 Saturday: NASA launched the Mars In Sight lander from California on a flight of more than six months to the red planet, where the robot geologist would dig deeper into the Martian surface than ever before.  Elsewhere, Palestinians are up to no good once again as a large blast erupts near the town of Deir al-Balah blows at least six Palestinians to kingdom come while injuring numerous others.  Hamas thugs point the jihadist finger at the Israelis who point theirs right back.  Sounds like a case of bomb-making gone bad.  Sad.
  59. 2019 Sunday: Due to Palestinian intransigence and transgression over the past several days, four Israeli and 23 Palestinian citizens lie dead and countless others injured.   Meanwhile, at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, at least 41 die and numerous others are injured as a Russian Aeroflot airliner comes back and makes an emergency landing.   Elsewhere, Juan Guido, president of the nation’s National Assembly, says he is considering a request with which to get the U.S. to invade the country and topple the communist POS dictator Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: After the U.S. Supreme Court begins it session hearing arguments from a distance, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg goes to the hospital for what sounds to be an issue with gall or kidney stones.  Politics aside, we wish her a full recovery and a swift return to work.  This woman is amazing, she has survived numerous health crises in her life and always comes back strong.  God bless you.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s charging of those involved in a plot to topple Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro, President Donald J. Trump denies any involvement in the so-called ‘attempted coup.’
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, the COVID-19 update for the day: confirmed cases globally stand at 3,659,271; confirmed deaths are 256,929; and confirmed recoveries are 1,197,735 which is extremely good.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,233,146, confirmed deaths are 71,921, and confirmed recoveries are 163,841.  In the states connected to this blog, stats for California confirmed cases stand at 56,705 while confirmed deaths are 2,309.  Sadly, Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, confirmed cases are 625, confirmed deaths are 17 and confirmed recoveries are 551.  Finally, in Washington state, confirmed cases are 15,557 and confirmed deaths are 862.  No information on confirmed recoveries so Gov. Jay Inslee is behaving just like Gov. Newsom.  Shame on them.  Question: WHY won’t Democrat-controlled states present recovery statistics?  Finally, communist China’s statistics, the place where this curse began remains the same: confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785 same as they were a week ago.  Shame.
  62. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 155,802,002 confirmed cases, +823,116, 3,254,757  confirmed deaths, +14,035, and 133,945,619 confirmed recoveries, +90,024.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,315,190 confirmed cases, UP 40,075 from yesterday’s reporting, 593,097 confirmed deaths, UP 691,[viii] and 26,014,813 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,527.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  63. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, There Have Been 278,256 Chi-Vi Deaths In The United States- feeble old Joe, in another 280.29 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 185,277 deaths.    The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says the Pfizer vaccine for teens should be approved by next week. 
  64. 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: 3,751,034 confirmed cases, 62,063 confirmed deaths, and 1,997,994 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,253,929 confirmed cases, 35,492 confirmed deaths, and 1,824,257 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,794 confirmed cases, 485 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 412,129 confirmed cases, 5,593 confirmed deaths, and 201,370 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Washington, D.C., a place  that wants two horrible senators should they become a flipping state: they have 48,041 confirmed cases, 1,109 confirmed deaths, but 33,988 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[x]   
  65. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,767 confirmed cases, 6,370 confirmed deaths, and 831,218 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Venezuela, a place human fecal matter such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter emulate: 201,807 cases of the virus, 2,208 confirmed deaths and 184,161 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  66. 2021 Wednesday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,230.34, UP 97.31 points (+0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,582.42, DOWN 51.08 points (-0.37%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,167.59, UP 2.93 points (+0.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.12 per barrel, -0.57 (-0.87%).  The price of GOLD is $1,784.90 per troy oz., +0.50 (+0.03%) while the price of SILVER is $26.51 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,225.90 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.23%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,964.82 per troy oz, -4.47 (-0.15%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.24.     In Nepalese Rupee, one greenback equals 118.26 and in New Israeli Shekel, a buck equals 3.27 and in Paraguayan Guarani, one dollar equals 6,727.00 of theirs.[xv]   Interesting note- prior to the announcement of their divorce, Bill Gates quietly and quickly moved $1.8 billion in stock to soon-to-be-ex-wife Melinda. 
  67. 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 $4.057 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.807 in Hawaii, and $3.495 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Nevada: $3.513.  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- Ecuador: $1.910 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,251,982,318,772 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  68. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Bill Johnson, R-OH 6th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the Dems are paying a ransom to Northern Triangle countries to keep their illegal aliens in their country.   Next, Tony Shaffer, president of the London Center for Policy Research and former President Donald J. Trump 2020 national security adviser says that socialism and the drug wars are driving people to flee Central America and come to the U.S.   Here’s a laugh- the Vermont state senate has passed a bill that will permit ILLEGAL ALIENS the right to vote in their state.  Wow.  Yet, they don’t want Americans to believe in the REPLACEMENT THEORY…
  69. 2021 Wednesday G: Biden Regime News I– Apparently, Joe Biden is eyeing clemencies early on in his career.  We are curious as to whom these people might be.    Next, the Biden regime is seeking a ‘special master’ to look into the seized electronic devices taken from Rudy Giuliani and Victoria Toensing.   Next, Joe Biden says he is ‘open’ to compromise on his corporate tax hike.  We’ll see.  Moving on, the White House is considering subsidies for nuclear power plants to help them meet climate targets.  Speaking of ‘climate warriors,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district), aka “The Fly,” aka “Baby Evita,” aka Sandy Cortez and Senator Ed Markey, CPUSA-MA, are pushing a $10 billion, 1.5-million-strong (of little Marxists) Civilian Climate Corps because the planet has a fever.  F**k these people.
  70. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– We learn today that thanks to the Chi-Vi, 20 million more Americans (many of them probably illegal aliens) were beset by food crises last year which means Joe Biden will be giving taxpayer dollars to illegals.  Can’t have them go hungry now, can we?   Elsewhere, the founder of BioNTech prophesizes that the Chi-Vi pandemic will continue until sometime in mid-2022, a date we are sure the Democrats hope will extend to the 2022 Mid-Term Elections so they can try to steal those elections, too.   In other COVID-19 news, over half of the people in the world’s democracies feel that governments repressed freedoms and liberties.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, blasts the FAKE NEWS MEDIA for labeling the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Mount Rushmore State in the summer a ‘super-spreader event.’  That’s the FAKE NEWS MEDIA, always causing trouble via disinformation and misinformation.  F**k them.  Finally, the U.S. Patent Office- at the direction of Joe Biden- is considering waiving patent rights on the vaccines to fight the Chi-Vi so everyone can jump into mass-producing this crap.   (Interesting tidbit- a U.S. federal court has overturned the moratorium on evictions.  Good.  Someone has to help landlords).
  71. 2021 Wednesday I: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Facebook votes to keep President Donald J. Trump banned but orders another ‘review’ down the road.   Once this news came out, President Trump blasted Facebook, Twitter, and Google as a ‘total disgrace’ (which they truly are).  Meanwhile, we learn that Iowa officials coordinated with BIG TECH to censor all posts related to the 2020 Presidential Election- so says Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch.
  72. 2021 Wednesday J: Political News I– Each day that passes, it appears more and more likely that Rep. Liz Cheney[xix], RINO-WY, is going to be toast as more and more Republicans are turning on the RINOs plaguing the GOP.[xx]  We hope she is out ASAP.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner forms the Abraham Accord Institute with which to continue pushing for peace around the world.   Next, the POS head of the Democratic Party in Lamar County, Texas, who called Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, an “Oreo,” offered his resignation earlier in the day but then Democrats in his county would not accept it.  Gary O’Connor is such a loveable guy; his fellow Dems don’t want to see the scumbag go.  Well, we do.   
  73. 2021 Wednesday K: Foreign News / Overseas News I– the president of El Salvador has taken over the country’s supreme court (look for Joe Biden to do something similar in the U.S.).  Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Columbia over the government raising taxes on its people.  The protesters, stupidly enough, are demanding socialism.   Next, those good-humored mullahs in Iran released a truly hilarious video in which it showed their military forces blowing up the U.S. Capitol Building.  Good.  We should blow their seat of government off the flipping map.  Now.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates security assistance to Afghanistan be continued even as U.S. forces pull out of that hellish country.  Yes.  We must.  Otherwise, we will be fighting them here in the streets of the U.S.  Hell, they are already here coming across the southern border.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is in London meeting with the G7 leaders.
  74. 2021 Wednesday L: Miscellaneous News I– After a report of one child’s death and numerous injuries, Peloton is recalling its treadmills.  Next, following the resignation of a top attorney, Coca-Cola pauses its controversial diversity plan.  Ah, the pause that refreshes.   Meanwhile, the state of Texas stops a Chi-Com energy company from purchasing Lone Star State land next to a military base.  Wow.  Thank you.   Elsewhere, LeBron “King of Fecal Matter” James apologizes for having started the wrong conversation about the police officer who was forced by the actions of Ma’ Khia Bryant to take her life before she stabbed another girl to death.  (Note- LeBron is little more than a BIG IDIOT over-amped on steroids and social media-likes.  Dumb ass).  Speaking of Black Lives Matter, a New Jersey police officer was fired for calling BLM ‘terrorists.’  They are TERRORISTS.  We have no problem calling spades ‘spades.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday M: Miscellaneous News II– Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, says that ‘Broadway will be open 100-percent by September.’  Uh, okay, trying to save your job, are we?  Next, Atlanta is ordered by the courts to reinstate a police officer they terminated who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks last year.  If you recall, Mr. Brooks was cooperating with cops after falling asleep in a drive-through lane at a fast-food restaurant and then began to fight.  Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms made sure Officer Garrett Rolfe was canned so she could maintain her bona fides with the BLM movement.  Glad to see you back, officer.  Moving on, a new law being considered could upend the firearms industry.   Laugh of the day, some POS New York City gunman got himself arrested after police read his social media posts.  Next, Sid Miller, Agriculture commissioner for Texas says that IF farmers are being discriminated against by Joe Biden, join our class action lawsuit.  Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis signs a new budget that will bestow $1,000 bonuses on law enforcement officers and first-responders.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws- First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #1656 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 06, 11, 17, 27, 39, and Mega 19.   Out of 119,647 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $10.335 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Lanes Market in Dorris, CA 90263; (2) Lucky Zone Lottery and Cigarettes in Los Angeles, CA 90014; (3) Chevron in El Monte, CA 91731; and (4) Adobe Beverage and Deli in Petaluma, CA 94954.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #843: 16, 23, 28, 40, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 58,518 winning tickets, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $481 apiece.  Good for them!
  77. 2022 Thursday: You know the drill…looks like the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party WOKE stooges are screwing with our numbers…

[i] Cinco De Mayo commemorates the victory of Mexican rebels over the French Foreign Legion, troops fighting for Emperor Maximillian.  In modern times, restaurants and bars have given it new life so they can increase alcohol and food sales.  Police departments across the land make mass arrests of drunken drivers, thus increasing local municipality coffers.

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

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

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

[vi] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade.

114. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2022

27. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews. The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles. In response, the Germans begin setting buildings on fire. However, the defenders in these buildings either fight to the death or retreat through pre-cut holes in walls or into the sewers to fight another day.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 209

114. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2022:

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Peter Vivian Daniel; U.S. Secretary of Defense Louis A. Johnson; Badfinger featuring Pete Ham, Blondie featuring Nigel Harrison, Creedence Clearwater Revival featuring Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, “Diamond Dogs” by David Bowie, and the Electric Prunes featuring Preston Ritter:

  1. 858 Wednesday: St. Nicholas I succeeds the 104th Pope Benedict III to become the 105th Roman Catholic Pope.
  2. 1061 Wednesday: An English monk predicts that England will suffer destruction thanks to the passage of Haley’s Comet by the Earth.
  3. 1519 Thursday: Envoys of Montezuma II attended the first Easter Mass in Central America—at the behest of Spanish conquistador, Hernan Cortes.
  4. 1585 Wednesday: The reign of the 227th Roman Catholic Pope Sixtus V begins on this date.  He would guide his earthly flock from today until August 27, 1590.
  5. 1704 Thursday: The first regular newspaper in Colonial America, The Boston News-Letter hits publication.
  6. 1762 Saturday: Russia and Prussia sign a treaty of peace.
  7. 1784 Saturday: The future 28th associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court- Peter Vivian Daniel- was born in Stafford County, Virginia, on this date.  A Democrat, he was appointed to the nation’s high court by President Martin Van Buren to fill the seat vacated by 25th Associate Justice Philip Pendleton Barbour.  Daniel served on the Supreme Court from 01-10-1842 to 05-31-1860 when he died.
  8. 1792 Tuesday: Captain Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle composed the national anthem of France, “La Marseillaise,” on this date.
  9. 1800 Thursday: Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress and President John Adams signed it into being, which appropriates $5,000 to purchase “such books as may be necessary for use of Congress.”
  10. 1805 Wednesday: In Tripoli, North Africa, United States Marines attacked and captured the town of Derna.
  11. 1833 Wednesday: The creator of the soda fountain received a patent for the device.
  12. 1867 Wednesday: Black demonstrators stage ride-ins on Richmond, Virginia, streetcars.
  13. 1877 Tuesday: In defense of Romania, Russia declares war on the Ottoman Empire.  Meanwhile, the last Federal occupation troops withdraw from the South, departing through New Orleans, Louisiana, for home.  This would open the door to horrendous actions by Southern Democrats and their allies, the Ku Klux Klan.  Every Black American needs to recall who the REAL villains in their mistreatment were and have been: the two groups above are responsible for their persecution and for Jim Crow/Segregation laws.
  14. 1884 Thursday: In Atlanta, Georgia, the Black National Physicians Organization organizes.
  15. 1889 Wednesday: Thomas Edison and his business advisors organized the Edison General Electric Company.
  16. 1897 Saturday: William Price became the first reporter at the White House.

  19. 1915 Saturday: What’s regarded as the start of the Armenian Genocide began as the Ottoman Empire rounded up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople.  Although persecutions against Christians had been ongoing since Turkey joined the Central Powers- German Empire, Austro-Hungary, and Bulgaria- they were going to step up the pressure, fearful that they would have enemies in their rear areas.  Elsewhere, on the Western Front, the Second Battle of Ypres continues as Germans continue making gains.  On the Eastern Front, the Austro-Hungarians are making headway in the western Ukraine against the Russian bear.
  20. 1916 Monday: Some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Uprising by seizing several key sites in Dublin; however, the British crushed it almost a week later.   The Irish felt that with the British occupiers suffering heavy losses in World War I, this might be a grand opportunity to drive them out of the Emerald Isle.
  21. 1917 Tuesday: Fighting continues to rage in the French countryside as British, French, and German forces throw all they have at one another.  Elsewhere, the Ukraine demands independence from Czarist Russia.
  22. 1918 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the Somme as the Germans continue their all-out offensive to drive the Allies out of the war.  Starvation and lack of medicine is plaguing both sides in this titanic struggle, one that has another 4-5 months to go.   Meanwhile, the British and Turks announce a decision for a prisoner exchange.
  23. 1937 Saturday: In Lima, Ohio, future saxophonist with Blood, Sweat & Tears in 1972- Joe Henderson is born.
  24. 1940 Wednesday: German forces in Norway continue solidifying their positions as reinforcements arrive with which to counter the Brits who are trying to keep Norway free and independent.  However, preparations for the invasion of France continue as Germans continue building their troop strength up, much of it in the heavily wooded Ardennes Forest.
  25. 1941 Thursday: Resistance in Greece is dying as the Germans and their allied Axis troops continue pushing Greek and British defenders back to the southern portion of the country.  In Yugoslavia, resistance is also sputtering to an end.  Elsewhere, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt orders military leaders to keep track of all German Kriegsmarine movements so the information can be forwarded to the British government, on the sly of course, as the U.S. is not yet in the war.
  26. 1942 Friday: The Luftwaffe steps up its attacks against British heritage sites as heavy bombers target sites up and down the eastern coast of Great Britain.  The British are determined to withstand the assault while the Germans are doing their best to bomb them into submission.
  27. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews.  The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.  In response, the Germans begin setting buildings on fire.  However, the defenders in these buildings either fight to the death or retreat through pre-cut holes in walls or into the sewers to fight another day.

Bush broke it; he now owns it.

  56. 2007 Tuesday: Hamas decides to do what it does best today: terrorism.  They launch a barrage of missiles, rockets, and mortar shells into neighboring Israel.  Scumbags.  Use neutron bombs on this human garbage to cleanse the region of their pestilence.  Elsewhere, Kevin Tillman, brother of NFL star and slain soldier in the Afghan War Pat Tillman, testifies before Congress accusing the Bush administration of manipulating his ‘friendly fire’ death into something with which to increase recruitment and support for the ongoing regime change wars.
  57. 2008 Thursday: Following the recent destruction of a nuclear facility in Syria by the Israelis, the United States reports that North Korean technicians helped the Syrians build the reactor.  Good thing the Israelis blew it up.  Meanwhile, following Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s BIG WIN in Pennsylvania this past Tuesday, she has raked in $10 million in donations.  Both she and her opponent, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, are focusing their attentions on Indiana, the next big state in the primary battles.  Elsewhere, the United Nations is crying that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing them from getting aid to the Palestinians.
  58. 2009 Friday: Not to be outdone by terrorists in Iraq yesterday, slavering jihadis carry out yet another suicide bombing in Baghdad, killing at least 80 people and wounding or crippling another 125.  Time to start lighting up the terrorists, we say, “Use neutron bombs, send these scumbags straight to hell.”  Elsewhere, North Korea plans to try two Current TV journalists they claim were on the soil, but evidence shows they were on the Chinese side of the Yalu River and were kidnapped by the North Koreans.  WTF?

  61. 2012 Tuesday: The Obama-controlled Pentagon is creating a new intelligence service, the Defense Clandestine Service that will (supposedly) investigate threats to U.S. national interests coming from nations such as North Korea, the Chi-Coms, and Iran.  Good.  Just what we need.  Another flipping spy agency in the hands of Barack Hussein Obama.  Meanwhile, Al-Jazeera reports that the case against imprisoned Pfc. Bradley Manning must be thrown out due to prosecutorial misconduct.
  62. 2013 Wednesday: Americans learn the FBI and CIA had previous intelligence from Russia warning U.S. intelligence agencies about Tamerlane Tsarnaev’s extremist connections before the Boston Marathon bombings.   Meanwhile, in Manchester, Illinois, a mass shooting occurs leaving five dead and another one or two injured.  As police track down the shooter and engage, the gunman is killed.
  63. 2014 Thursday:  The Federal Communications Commission moves away from the idea of net neutrality, in which all Internet users can equally access and view content; the agency instead proposes to allow large companies to pay Internet service providers for access to faster streaming “lanes.”  Meanwhile, it sounds like President Barack Hussein Obama, aka the Bamster, listened to us yesterday.  He is blasting Russian dictator Vladimir Putin for waging a war of aggression in the Ukraine and is threatening additional sanctions on Moscow.
  64. 2015 Friday: As the civil war continues raging in Yemen, UNICEF reports that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of children have been slain, wounded, or maimed for life in the savage fighting there.  Iran is meddling in this war, stirring up trouble for the Saudis and the rest of the Sunni world.  They believe that if they can bring Shias to power in Yemen, they will have the Kingdom nearly surrounded.
  65. 2016 Sunday: With the U.S. silent about the upcoming joint military exercises with South Korea, North Korea moves up 300 ballistic missile launchers near the demilitarized zone on the chance they may have to go to war with both the U.S. and their southern neighbors.  Speaking of President Obama, he says the U.S. won’t be deploying ground troops to Syria and sadly, he believes the last nine months of his time in office will not see ISIS defeated.  (Note- because YOU never tried, Bamster).
  66. 2017 Monday: Arkansas puts their thumb in the eyes of the leftists as it becomes the first state to execute NOT one murderer but two on the same day, something that has not occurred since 2000.  Convicted murderers Jack Jones Jr. and Marcel Williams meet their Maker via lethal injection.
  67. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump hosts his first state dinner for visiting French President Emanuel Macron.  Elsewhere, according to IFPI, streaming music service sales overtake that of CDs, LPs, and tapes.  Such a shame but young people are extremely unintelligent when it comes to sound quality.  Elsewhere, Thailand raises its hand and suggests that it would like to hold the upcoming summit between the United States and North Korea.
  68. 2019 Wednesday: “Brave Leader” Kim Jong Un arrives in Vladivostok, Russia, aboard his armored private train for his first meetings with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.  The talks will begin tomorrow.  Speaking of the ‘Brave Leader,’ four of his foreign ministry officials underwent execution over his failed second summit with President Donald J. Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, back in February.  Accused of handing over sensitive information to the Americans, these unlucky four were lucky enough that all they faced was the firing squad and not some bizarre other form of execution dreamed up by Chairman Kim Jong Un.

  76. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has been sharing photos on One America News (and probably other news networks as well) of ILLEGAL ALIENS being removed from holding pens and hotels along the border and dumped into airports in the region for transport to other parts of the country.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is being slammed, rightfully so, seeing as how 30 days have passed and the so-called ‘Border Czar’ has been nowhere near the flipping border.  WTF?   In other perplexing news, ICE ends placing fines on illegal aliens.  WTF about this, too?  
  77. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden News I– White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- not the brightest bulb in the pack to be sure- says that drooling old Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress will likely NOT have many attendees as we are all observing COVID-19 restrictions. Yeah, right.  Sure.  Flipping old Joe is going to be swinging at a lot of balls but connecting with very few of them so we cannot have anyone observing the senile old coot too closely. 
  78. 2021 Saturday H: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– As Democrats continue trying to throw roadblocks in the path of the Maricopa County, Arizona’s recount and election integrity efforts, Steve Bannon asks an incredibly simple question: WHAT ARE THE DEMS AFRAID OF?  That’s it in a nutshell, what the f**k are the Democrats trying to prevent the American people seeing?   Meanwhile President Donald J. Trump calls on Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, to provide not only more support to the ongoing effort to achieve election integrity but also security so that it can proceed without rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth liberal lunatics trying to halt it.  President Trump questions WHY Democrats are so determined to STOP the ongoing efforts to find out what the hell happened in the early morning hours after Election Day 2020 and also says, the ‘results will be startling.’
  79. 2021 Saturday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Indonesia announced today that their missing submarine is presumed lost and the crew dead.  How sad.  This is a horrible tragedy.  Next, Palestinians are behaving like they always do- like a bunch of Untermensch, this time in Jerusalem for the 11th night in a row.  Alas, what is their problem?  Well, since the start of Ramadan, they have been running amok in Jerusalem, causing Israeli Defense Forces to launch a harsh crackdown on the human garbage.  Meanwhile, their brethren across the border began firing rockets into Israel.  Sounds like someone is looking for a major ass-whooping, yet again.   Next, Southeast Asian nations have reached some sort of consensus over the crisis in Myanmar.  Hmmm, what are they going to do about it?  Finally, an avalanche near the Indo-Sino border sees 8 people killed but another 384 rescued.   Elsewhere, at least 27-30 people are dead in a Baghdad COVID-19 hospital blaze (probably set by jihadists being the kind, loving people they are).
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Social Media News–  President Donald J. Trump discussed his removal from Facebook and Twitter and notes that BOTH are extremely boring and that issuing press releases is much more elegant and informative.  Next, Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame presented his third program on the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election today, “Absolute Interference,” which is a mind-blower to see just how deep the hacks by the Chi-Coms were.  Lindell showed so much evidence that we do indeed hope that it ends up before the U.S. Supreme Court where- IF Chief Justice John Roberts does not behave as he normally does- things might change.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: COVID-19 News / Updates– It appears that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for the Chi-Vi will soon be back online, even though continued reports of deaths and intensified menstrual cycles continue to predominate the news cycle.   Next, a new MIT study questions the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci dictates regarding wearing of masks and maintaining social distancing from fellow human beings.   MIT questions whether social distancing works while Republicans demand evidence from the Centers for Disease Control regarding the need for children but especially children under the age of TWO to wear flipping masks.  NO evidence says they should.   
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News I– First, an Oklahoma police officer, Nathan Ronan of the Lawton PD who was at the center of a deadly shooting has been cleared of ALL charges.  Next, the NYPD is searching for a gangbanging POS who drug one of theirs by a speeding vehicle before dumping him off in the streets.   Next, a guy in the Lone Star State was arrested after shooting a police officer in the shoulder.   Moving on, in the era of feeble old Joe Biden yet another gun crime occurs, this one on Bourbon Street in New Orleans in the wee hours of the morning where five people were shot (but none so far have died).   
  83. 2021 Saturday M: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News II– Elsewhere, convicted murderer Derek Chauvin (whom we still believe is going to be cleared of all charges provided he is not shivved between here and there) could face added charges for an arrest back in 2017.  Boy, the radical left hates to let go, like a dog humping one’s pantleg.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice has charged five people for defrauding Medicare of $65 million over the back brace scheme we think everyone has heard at least one sales pitch on the phone at one time or another.  Good.  Send them to prison, those ads were annoying.  Finally, Jeffrey Epstein’s close associate and procurer Ghislaine Maxwell pleads NOT guilty to loads more charges of sex trafficking.
  84. 2021 Saturday N: State News– Former Trump associate Mike Egan is running for the Texas 6th congressional district seat in a special election next month.   Elsewhere, Alabama passes a law that will allow student athletes to profit off their images and likenesses.   Next, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte, Republican, signed a bill that NULLIFIES all restrictions on guns.  However, the Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, Democrat, vetoed a bill that would lower the age for concealed carry firearm permits to 18.  That one is okay unless of course the individual is in law enforcement or the U.S. military.   Meanwhile, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, shared an update with his voters about his remaining eye’s condition.  He hopes to have vision restored and for him to be back on the job.
  85. 2021 Saturday O: Stupid News Of The Day– In crazy news of the day, the fossilized mummy Joe Biden says, ‘MORE troops are heading to Afghanistan even though he claims- we repeat, CLAIMS- U.S. troops are coming home on September 11, 2021.’  Wow.  These people simply do not want to leave the flipping country.  Let the Chi-Coms have ‘em.   Meanwhile, as the Chi-Vi pandemic ebbs and flows, toilet paper prices are beginning to return to normal and supplies are hitting all-time highs.   In other STUPID news, an unnamed member of the Biden regime claims that U.S. sanctions on Russia are having their desired effect because the Russians ‘went home.’  Don’t count on it…next, Portland, Oregon, declare yet another riot after Antifa burns down a Boys & Girls Club.  When are you going to start shooting these scumbags?  A little bit of lead will stop the rioting like that.  BOOM!
  86. 2021 Saturday P: Miscellaneous News I– Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO-LA, says, ‘the GOP infrastructure bill will provide more for less.’  Next, Representative Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district says that Joe Biden’s ‘New Deal’ hurts poor people the most.  Next conservative icon Ari Hoffman is taking over the helm at Seattle’s KVI radio station.   Moving on, George P.

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

[ii] We hope to promote the music of the Electric Prunes within the next 5-10 years.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iv] We should have shot down this POS satellite.

[v] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

[vi] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so please remain vigilant.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of David Bowie within the next decades.

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

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

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 566,856 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 202,101 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 454 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[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

90. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 2022

1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Communist China and receives political asylum in neighboring India. The communists claim that Tibet belongs to them, but Tibet does not, it’s been an independent kingdom for all time. The communists are invading the country to subjugate it, it’s people, and to provide lebensraum for its people. Wait, isn’t that what the Nazis called their land-grabs? Living room for their people? Funny how history tends to repeat itself…

  29. 1944 Friday: German ally Hungary orders its Jews to wear yellow stars beginning April 5, so its police forces and the Nazis can find them.  Meanwhile, future guitarist with Mott the Hoople[iii] and Bad Company[iv]—Mick Ralphs—was born in in Stoke Lacy, Herefordshire, England on this date.  Elsewhere, in Alexandria, Virginia, future U.S. Senator Angus King is born.  A future ‘independent’ (a reliable Democrat vote), he would enter the world’s greatest deliberative body on January 03, 2013, representing Maine.  Meanwhile, in the Pacific Theater, U.S. air assets are pounding Japanese positions on the island of Palau ahead of an invasion to drive them out and retake the strategic island.
  30. 1945 Saturday: The Red Army continues plowing through Poland, capturing Upper Silesia on the way to the east German border.  Fighting is fierce, the Germans fighting for every scrap of land as for them, it’s better to fight the battle in Poland than in the homeland.  Russian forces are so powerful and the Germans so weak, the Nazis are fighting on nothing more than fumes which for them is formidable for their enemies.

  34. 1949 Thursday: Newfoundland (now called Newfoundland and Labrador) entered confederation as Canada’s 10th province.
  35. 1954 Wednesday: The Battle of Dien Bien Phu continues to rage.  The communists have set their sights on French positions east of the Nam Yum River, the Elianes and Dominiques.  Although held by understrength units, the French regular army and Foreign Legion troops and Vietnamese and Thai allies are determined to give ground at excessive cost to the enemy.  As usual, the People’s Army digs trenches right up to the wire perimeters of the French positions and at the blast of the whistle storm up and hopefully over it into the trenches where hand-to-hand fighting will rage.  Attacks and counterattacks would sway back and forth.  Horrible battle…

  38. 1959 Tuesday: The Dalai Lama flees Communist China and receives political asylum in neighboring India.  The communists claim that Tibet belongs to them, but Tibet does not, it’s been an independent kingdom for all time.  The communists are invading the country to subjugate it, it’s people, and to provide lebensraum for its people.  Wait, isn’t that what the Nazis called their land-grabs?  Living room for their people?  Funny how history tends to repeat itself…

  46. 1973 Saturday: In the 12th round of their heavyweight title fight, Ken Norton beats Muhammad Ali in a split decision.  Losing the North American Boxing Federation title, Ali’s pro-career record dropped to 42-2.  As for Ken Norton, his record improved to 30-1.  Norton and Ali would meet again later in the year.
  47. 1975 Tuesday: After a record 20 seasons on CBS-TV, “Gunsmoke” ended its run with its final first-run episode, “The Sharecroppers.”  This was perhaps one of the all-time greatest TV westerns but now with all the WOKE stupidity f***ing up the country, it would probably be deemed RACIST.  F*** them.  
  48. 1976 Wednesday: The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled that the family of Karen Ann Quinlan, who was in a persistent vegetative state, could disconnect her from her respirator.  However, she remained unconscious until death finally claimed her in 1985.

Bush from January 31, 2001, until today.

  67. 2012 Saturday: Construction workers make progress on the United Kingdom and the European Union’s tallest building when workers place the spire of the Shard London Bridge into place.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Com authorities bust six people and close at least 16 websites.  What were their crimes?  They said they saw ‘military vehicles on the streets of Beijing.’  Question: aren’t there military vehicles on the streets of Beijing all the time?
  68. 2013 Sunday: In China, two people die from H7N9 avian influenza infection.  H7N9 avian influenza is a sub-type that medical professionals previously did not believe was a threat to humans.  Elsewhere, in the Nigerian city of Kano, the Nigerian military has a momentous day when they storm a building full of Boko Haram thugs, killing 14 Islamist thugs at the cost of one of their own as well as apprehend a wanted bomb-maker and a car jam-packed with explosives.  Kill them all.

  70. 2015 Tuesday: Even though the deadline for discussions on the Iranian nuclear program has arrived, the petulant terrorist nation and six other countries agree to continue the talks because ‘some progress has been made.’  The Iranians are lying scumbags and we cannot trust them.  Meanwhile, some crazy things are occurring in Turkey what with a blackout afflicting approximately 65-percent of the country.  Terrorism?  No one knows for sure.
  71. 2016 Thursday: The Supreme Court of the state of Pennsylvania upholds a previous court ruling that allows Texas Senator Ted Cruz to appear on the state’s primary ballot.  Some losers were trying to challenge the senator’s being born in Canada to American parents saying he was not qualified under the Constitution to seek the nation’s high office.
  72. 2017 Friday: New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says he is ‘developing a plan to close the infamous Rikers Island New York Police Department jail within a decade.’  That will be the day.   Elsewhere, at a meeting of NATO members, the Germans say it’s ‘unrealistic for them to spend 2-percent of their GDP on military assets and equipment.’  Wow.  Meanwhile, former 4th U.S. Transportation Secretary William Thaddeus Coleman Jr. died at age 96.  A Republican, he served under President Gerald R. Ford from March 07, 1975, to January 20, 1977.
  73. 2018 Saturday:  President Donald J. Trump’s first secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, found himself fired today.  He served from February 01, 2017, to March 31, 2018.  This pretentious fool called his boss a “moron,’ which is one of the major reasons he got canned.  He was actively working against the president from within the State Department.
  74. 2019 Sunday: So many illegal aliens are attempting to storm the United States that the Trump administration has threatened to close the border with Mexico.  The American people want to know, when will there be enough ‘invaders’ for the ruling class to understand this and to then authorize the use of deadly force?  We cannot wait until the nation has been toppled via the sheer numbers of illegals seeking entry to the country.  Shoot them down!
  75. 2020 Tuesday: As the day sputters to an end, cases of the Wuhan Virus continue going up although communist China continues braying like sheep  that cases there are going down and life is returning to normal.  Uh, okay, can’t trust communists folks.  As we wrap up for the day, total confirmed cases around the planet are at 858,785 what with a total of 42,139 confirmed deaths worldwide.  In the United States, there are 203,608 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu with 4,476 confirmed deaths.  Again, thank you, China.  Today, the governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, says life will be shut down until sometime in June, returning to normal a day AFTER the GOP primary takes place.  What a scumbag.
  76. 2021 Wednesday: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Under the Biden administration, it is clear that there no longer is any control on the southern border.  Hundreds of thousands of people are pushing across the border, swamping border guards, and spilling into the interior of the country.  This is akin to what brought about the end of the Roman Empire, its inability to escape perpetual wars as well as losing control of it borders to more and more people who would not assimilate.  Here is what we think: WE believe the Biden administration is praying for the American people to take it upon themselves to defend the border, doing whatever must be done to prevent the collapse of the country.  Then, and only then can some POS such as General Russell L. Honoré can then institute a harsh crackdown of the American people, once again going after the most dangerous enemy the country has ever known: evil white racist bigots.  This is what’s up.  Meanwhile, Chef Lilah Paulikovich informed us today that a relative working at HNL in Honolulu reported the first arrival of a planeload of illegal alien brats.  They are spreading the misery to wherever they can.   
  77. 2021 Wednesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– That bug-eyed moron from the Empire State- Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (birth name ‘Sandy Cortez), aka AOC, aka Baby Evita (can we please deport this skank back to Venezuela or Cuba from where she truly came?)- has told the world that to refer to the border crisis as a ‘border surge’ is somehow racist.  Folks, they truly need some sort of intelligence test for people to serve at the federal level because this woman is a ditz.   Texas Governor Greg Abbott demands that the ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris address the border crisis instead of hiding from it out of sight. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday B: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– The Biden administration is backing away from its desire to force a COVID-19 passport onto the American people.  Although they didn’t state this, we believe the following is the reason: when it comes time to vote, the voter would have to show their COVID-19 Chi-Vi vaccine passport with their photo ID.  Everyone knows that Democrats recoil from voter ID as Dracula does the sunlight and/or a crucifix.   Nope, until they can find some other way to force everyone to show proof of vaccination, this one is on the back-burner…for now.   Meanwhile, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is slamming the Biden-Harris administration on the coming massive tax increases with which, the administration plans to pay for all the graft they have in the pipeline.  The Chamber of Commerce probably is wishing Donald J. Trump would return.   Speaking of Biden’s infrastructure plan, progressives are demanding $10 trillion in GREEN NEW DEAL spending.  WTF is wrong with these morons?  We don’t have the f***ing money, you dog dinguses.
  79. 2021 Wednesday C: COVID-19 NEWS– Peter Navarro, President Donald J. Trump’s economic adviser, lit into the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci who has been taking credit for the development of the Chi-Vi vaccine via Operation Warp Speed.   He laid out the case- first the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci downplayed the danger the virus posed to the American people, then said that it would “take years” to develop a vaccine, and then when the vaccine hit, AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci took credit for the vaccine.  We also remember the micro-doc saying, ‘masks were ineffective,’ then saying we ‘should wear 2-3 masks’ and at one point, even suggesting that perhaps ‘we should all wear goggles.’  WTF?  Anyhow, Mr. Navarro calls the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci a ‘sociopath.’  He sure appears to be that way as does Dr. Deborah Birx.  Full of themselves and full of fecal matter.[xi]   Elsewhere, ‘statistics’ show that in 2020, after heart disease and cancer, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu was the third highest cause of death (at 11-percent).[xii]   Finally, France is re-instituting nationwide lockdowns as well as school closures because the Chi-Vi is on the rampage yet again.  And YOU don’t believe that this evil crap didn’t come out of a biowarfare laboratory.  Finally, Pfizer and BioNTech claim their vaccines are 100-percent effective among adolescents and pre-teens.
  80. 2021 Wednesday D: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– while the Biden administration is urging the European Union to remove all restrictions imposed upon Iran, the EU is planning to hit the number one JIHAD NATION with new sanctions because of their misbehavior.  Good.   Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms penetrated Taiwanese airspace the other day and the Taipei air controllers reported that when the Chi-Com pilots were told to leave ROC airspace, one of the Chi-Com pilots said, “This is ours.”  Shoot the skunks down.  Invasion coming soon.  We think so.  Meanwhile, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is blasting the decrepit Biden administration over being soft on the People’s Republic of China (although lackluster U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken doubles down on his remarks of Chi-Com human rights violations such as the genocide of the Uighurs).  Beijing then responds, ‘wah, wah, wah, we are being discriminated against.’  F*** you guys.  Finally, H & M reports Q 1 losses and vows that it will rebuild its reputation in communist China after last year raising concerns over mistreatment of Uighur and other minorities in the PRC in Xinjiang Province.  This is why nothing will improve what with too many spineless countries and businesses.
  81. 2021 Wednesday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Hunter Biden- son of Joe Biden- says that he probably ‘should not have taken a job with Burisma.’  Uh, okay.  Finally got the crack out of your brain and see the error of your ways?  Meanwhile, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, is beset with what appears to be a false flag operation- most likely being run out of the DCCC- to tie him to transporting an underage girl across stateliness.  We watched an interview with the congressman and Fox News’ Tucker Carlson last night and we concur- it was a strange interview but not because of Congressman Gaetz but because Tucker sometimes seems to have difficulties processing what people are saying to him.  Ah, well, we won’t pass judgment until we hear the complete story.  Elsewhere, it’s Day 3 of the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, on trial for the death of thug, George Floyd.
  82. 2021 Wednesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Facebook and Instagram banned a recent interview between Lara Trump and President Donald J. Trump.  Sad.  Next, beached whale of a governor, Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, just did a complete 180 and signed into a law legalizing recreational pot in the Empire State.  Not that long ago, “Killer Cuomo” did not want to see legalized pot in his state but as he continues to appear shakier and shakier by the day, the guy will do anything to cling to his job.  Can someone somewhere find photos of this moron in BLACK FACE?  That would be the trifecta!  Next, down in Georgia, an equally shaky governor, Brian Kemp, says that the NEW voting laws slams the Democrats’ power grab with H.R. 1.   Moving on, the Wisconsin State Supreme Court strikes down Governor Tony Evers’ demand for the mask mandate to continue ad infinitum.  Good for you!  Finally, the WOKE Pentagon reverses President Donald J. Trump’s tranny ban and welcomes ALL trannys and other aberrant behavior people to join its ranks.      
  83. 2021 Wednesday G: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 128,421,931 confirmed cases, +633,914, 2,807,094  confirmed deaths, +12,673, and 72,860,502 confirmed recoveries, +359,322.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,613,592 confirmed cases, up 64,157 from yesterday’s reporting, 556,487 confirmed deaths, UP 910, and 118,271,487 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.[xiii] 
  84. 2021 Wednesday H: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 229,277 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  85. 2021 Wednesday I: 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: 3,667,039 confirmed cases, 59,138 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,052,433 confirmed cases, 33,337 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,689 confirmed cases, 459 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 365,867 confirmed cases, 5,302 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Michigan, the home of Governor “Gravel Gertie Gretchen” Whitmer: currently, they have 739,078 confirmed cases, 17,100 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 833,040 confirmed cases, 6,203 confirmed deaths, and 819,564 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Morocco, home of perhaps the most libertarian Arab society: 496,097 cases of the virus, 8,818 confirmed deaths and 483,363 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

  87. 2021 Wednesday K: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.902 per gallon, $2.860 in Florida, $3.680 in Hawaii, and $3.329 in Washington state.[xix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,116,714,678,561 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  88. 2021 Wednesday L: Congressman Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district and the House Minority Leader, said today that ‘House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi genuinely wants to get Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district out of office so she can cement her grip on power.  Currently, her control is among the slimmest margins ever and if border Blue Dog Democrats begin defecting to the GOP camp, she is going to have one hell of a time getting her Maoist agenda pushed through.  Elsewhere, a judge ruled that the Trump campaign’s NDA- non-disclosure agreements- are virtually unenforceable.   Next, we overlooked mentioning it yesterday but the “G-Man”- G. Gordon Liddy of Watergate fame as well as a longtime talk radio host died at age 90.  God bless you, “G-Man!”  Elsewhere, Congressman Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district says there’s “No way” Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan will get bipartisan support.  Finally, the Cancel Culture is canceling two episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants as one episode features the clam pandemic and the other one a character stealing ladies undergarments.  WTF? 
  89. 2021 Wednesday M: Having earlier mentioned House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s attempt to boot out Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, Iowa State Senator Rita Hart, D-IA 49th senatorial district, has dropped her bid to have the senile old speaker of the House steal the election for her.  The people of Iowa were extremely angry with her for trying to steal a certified election.  Elsewhere, it would appear that ALL of the perps committing hate crimes against Asian-Americans are BLACK AMERICANS.  Two recent beatings of Asian-Americans caught on camera were committed by black men.  One is in custody, the other one is being sought by law enforcement.  We speculate that the Democrats are paying one portion of their identity politics base to go out and attack another, lesser-liked member, i.e., the Asians, to commit HATE CRIMES.  The Democrats are the master puppeteers.  Finally, Joe Biden is giving us a NEW Civilian Climate Corps.  Going to be loads of losers flocking to that crap-assed organization.  Greta Thunberg-like wannabes, screaming at EVERYONE:  “YOU ARE KILLING THE PLANET!” F**k them.
  90. 2021 Wednesday N: Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3547 with a $33 million pot on the line: 04, 26, 36, 37, 42, and Mega 05.  Out of 113,541 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $13,076 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) Primm Valley Lotto, Nipton, CA 93264; (2) Shell, West Hills, CA 93107; and (3) Worton’s Market, Georgetown, CA 95634.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #833 with a $20 million jackpot awaiting some lucky person- 03, 10, 44, 55, 68, and Power 24.  Out of 41,878 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,656,980.  Out of 41,878 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,656,980. The top winning ticket in California was sold at the Circle K in Temecula, California 92592.
  91. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

[i] Observed in Arizona, California, Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Wisconsin.

[ii] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[iii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iv] See previous footnote.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp, but we hope to do it within the next year or so.  You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[vi] 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.

[vii] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.

[viii] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[ix] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[x] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant for the day when we do.

[xi] Something else of interest are the side effects connected to the various vaccines, particularly the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the one that uses fetal tissues from aborted fetuses for both testing and manufacturing such as the elderly man who THREE DAYS post his final vaccination, his skin turned bright red and began peeling off his body.  Now this sounds rather ‘satanic’ to us so there is NO flipping way anyone working at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will ever get the J & J vaccine.  EVIL.

[xii] However, most of the victims were either seniors, the disabled, the chronically ill, and the obese or overweight.  Stats also show that hardly anyone died from the flu.  Amazing how that works…

  52. 2013 Saturday: Northwest Africa 7325, a green meteorite found in Morocco, 2012, may have originated on planet Mercury; if scientists are correct, this will be the first known meteorite from Mercury.  Meanwhile, North Korea declares that it is in a state of war with neighboring South Korea.
  53. 2014 Sunday: Slovakia sets a new precedent by electing Andrej Kiska, a millionaire, as president; Mr. Kiska is the first president without ties to the Communist party to be elected since 1993, when the country was formed out of the breakup of Czechoslovakia.  Elsewhere, at the Hague, the Philippines files a complaint against the People’s Republic of China for bullying their fishing fleets and for trying to drive Filipinos off islands they either claim or hold.
  54. 2015 Monday: In recent Nigerian elections, General Muhammadu Buhari defeats incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan by 2.5 million votes.  Elsewhere, as the situation in Yemen continues deteriorating, the People’s Republic of China begins pulling out its diplomats and civilians.   Meanwhile, Comedy Central’s The Daily Show decides on Trevor Noah- a South African comic (so they say)- as the successor to Jon Stewart who is retiring.  
  55. 2016 Wednesday: The National Border Patrol Council endorses GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump for president of the United States.  This is the organization’s first ever endorsement of a person running for president in the United States.  Amazing.
  56. 2017 Thursday: Bowing to public pressure from liberals and with threats of boycott by most major sports, North Carolina repeals its ‘controversial’ bathroom bill that restricted public bathrooms to specific genders- like it’s always been.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, a witness testifying before Congress says that ‘Vladimir Putin hired 1,000 people to create anti-Hillary Clinton news during the 2016 Presidential Election.’
  57. 2018 Friday: On this date, Palestinians go crazy as they commence their “Great March of Return,” the beginning of six long weeks of nonstop protests in which they demand- once again- the ‘right of return’ for ALL Palestinians and their descendants who walked away from the new state of Israel in 1948.  For their troubles, the first day’s casualty total (you knew this was coming) was 19 dead Palestinians and 1,416 wounded.  What a bunch of losers.
  58. 2019 Saturday: On today’s date, Slovakia elects its first female head of state, Zuzana Caputova.  Congratulations!   Meanwhile, Pope Francis arrives in Rabat, Morocco, his first ever pontifical visit to the Maghreb region of North Africa.  The pope and King Mohammed VI call for the protection of Jerusalem’s holy sites as they belong to multitudes of people and to the three primary monotheistic religions.  We agree.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump orders the U.S. State Department to cease aid to El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala unless they halt the flow of their citizens trying to invade the southern United States.
  59. 2020 Monday: The Wuhan Virus continues causing problems around the planet as cases near 800,000 and deaths approach 39,000.  China continues claiming they are NOT responsible for this evil they have foisted upon the world, and many believe they colluded with the Democratic Party to launch yet another attempt to remove from office or take down altogether President Donald J. Trump.  Not going to happen, folks.   In New York City, the U.S. hospital ship Comfort arrives in New York City to care for patients that Mayor Bill Di Blasio will never send to it.  As for the Summer 2020 Olympics, postponed a week prior to later in the year are now postponed to June 23, 2021.
  60. 2021 Tuesday: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I– in the first outrageous news story of the day, a new report says that 2.64 million illegal aliens are receiving COVID-19 relief checks which is BULLS**T.  In the second outrageous tidbit of news today regarding the swamping of the border with hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, we learn today that in San Diego County[ix], California, where our illustrious colleague, Chef Pedro Muñoz resides (and he confirms this), members of the California Teachers Association is visiting illegal alien holding pens where the river-swimming brats are being warehoused to instruct them while it’s still not flipping safe for American kids to attend classes in person more than 5-8 hours per week.   What else do we need to hear to know that the ruling class DETESTS the people they were elected to help?[x] 
  61. 2021 Tuesday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– In Texas, the Border Patrol continues reporting that they are arresting hundreds of known illegal alien criminals, thugs, rapists, and narcoterrorists.  We also hear that Russians and Iranians are slipping into the country.  These people should all be shot on sight, especially the latter.  Next, we hear that the nation’s glorious NEW BORDER CZAR, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has no plans on visiting the southern border.   Elsewhere, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district warns the ‘Biden administration’ to stop dumping illegal aliens in the Copper State.  Enough is flipping enough already there Joe Biden.    Meanwhile, Congressman Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district held a round-table discussion with members of his community as to how best they can protect their communities from being overrun with illegal aliens.[xi]  Finally, Lara Trump is hammering the Democrats over their hypocrisy on the border.
  62. 2021 Tuesday B: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district is demanding to know from the U.S. Department of Justice as to whether any prosecutions are going to fall atop the Antifa scum and their reign of terror in Portland, Oregon.  Crickets.   Next, former Congressman Ron Paul, R-TX, says ‘Joe Biden’s gun control policies are going to do nothing to help kids.’  Next, Joe Biden’s new chief of diversity and inclusion at U.S. Southern Command Richard Torres Estrada has had his reign cut short.  Due to a bunch of hateful, mean tweets such as comparing President Donald J. Trump with Adolf Hitler, he is being reassigned elsewhere.  Oh, boohoo for you.  LOL.  Moving on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki was stumped by a reporter’s question at the daily briefing: “Can you explain WHY Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris fly all over the place- unessential travel- when Americans cannot do the same?  Psaki had no answer (but generally, she seldom does.  Talk about an overrated individual).  Finally, ‘Pandering Joe’ Biden has announced some court picks among them the first Muslim jurist at the federal level.  Keep on pandering, Joe.  Can’t wait to see who the pro-jihadi is…
  63. 2021 Tuesday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Senator Pat Toomey, R-PA, is putting a Federal Reserve Bank branch on notice to stop overstepping its boundaries meaning stop pushing the liberal WOKE agenda.  Good for you.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump continues blasting Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci as without him, Operation Warp Speed would never have occurred.  The undynamic duo continue taking credit for what the 45th president did for the American people (for those who want to get the shots which we don’t).  Elsewhere, a Jackson County, Michigan, judge drops ‘terrorism charges’ against three patriotic Americans charged with the attempted kidnapping of Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI.  According to the judge, there has to be evidence of ‘committing terrorist acts’ which there aren’t.  They will still face trial on other crimes.   Finally, our esteemed Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has ordered the Department of Justice to begin investigations into ALL (the white) HATE CRIMES afflicting our nation.  Whoa.
  64. 2021 Tuesday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– as a 10th accuser represented by famed feminist attorney Gloria Allred blasts the corrupt, deviant New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, the cringing POS continues to claim that ‘grabbing and groping women is a cultural norm,’ that the ‘Gropin’ Love Gov’ meant nothing wrong by his actions.[xii]  He is sorry if ‘he offended anyone.’  Regarding another deviate, Jeffrey Epstein’s procurer Ghislaine Maxwell, she finds herself facing added charges, charges of corrupting underage 14-year-old girls.  You in trouble there, chickee.   Elsewhere- and we don’t understand this- Nike- the maker of Lil NAS X’s satanic tennis shoes is suing the rapper to remove the ‘human blood component’ in the shoes.  YOU make the shoes, stop making the crap and throw them on the bonfire.  Enough with satanic bulls*** already.  In other news, Dr. Nicholas Meriwether, Ph.D. of Ohio’s Shawnee State University has won a court case on appeal over his refusal to use tranny-friendly gender terms.  Good.  Tell the trannys- aka chicks with dicks- to shut up and grow up.
  65. 2021 Tuesday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– the World Health Organization’s boss Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus- in the hip pocket of Comrade Xi Jinping- slams his own COVID-19 report and demands a further investigation into whether or not there was a leak of the Chi-Vi at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  This is strange.  Former S.C. governor and former U.N. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley says the ‘WHO COVID-19 report is nothing more than Chi-Com propaganda.’   In other heartwarming news (LOL), Google Maps will now direct its users (no longer us) to ‘eco-friendly routes.’  Are you going to direct El Jefe Climate Czar John F. Kerry to ‘eco-friendly routes?’  That will be the day.  Next, the Freedom Caucus is split on how to combat the “Chi-Com Joe” Biden agenda.  Folks, you do exactly what the Democrats do: court-shop and get one injunction after another slapped on every crap-ass issue the Biden Gang tries to stuff down our throats.
  66. 2021 Tuesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Mt. Rushmore is shut down and 400 households in the area are evacuated as out-of-control wildfires continue to rage.  Elsewhere, the Derek Chauvin murder trial continues.  The teen who shot the video of George Floyd’s death says that Mr. Floyd begged for his life.  Famed legal trial attorney and scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says, ‘thank God for cellphone cameras at least in this case.’  What we are curious of is the story we first heard last year shortly after the murder of Mr. Floyd was the connection between then-Officer Chauvin and Mr. Floyd who both worked security at a local nightclub, the El Nuevo Rodeo.[xiii]  When the story first hit, it opened a door that might show there was a personal issue between the two men that Officer Chauvin then acted upon which would possibly up the charges to first-degree murder but then…that case visited.   Meanwhile, leftist do what leftists do and following the new Georgia Elections Law, democratic-socialists are demanding that Major League Baseball and Professional Golf Association BOYCOTT the Peach State as well a third suit challenging the law was filed today.  My, my, my.  Finally, Philadelphia cops are searching for a POS shooter who shot and killed one person in a shopping mall.  Sounds rather personal.
  67. 2021 Tuesday G: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,788,017 confirmed cases, +30,892, 2,794,721  confirmed deaths, +6,509, and 72,501,170 confirmed recoveries, +244,446.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,549,435 confirmed cases, up 230,660 from yesterday’s reporting, 555,577 confirmed deaths, UP 5,714, and 118,013,462 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiv] 
  68. 2021 Tuesday H: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 228,367 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  69. : COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,664,708 confirmed cases, 59,011 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,047,371 confirmed cases, 48,316 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,626 confirmed cases, 459 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 365,075 confirmed cases, 5,296 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Tennessee, the Volunteer State: currently, they have 808,404 confirmed cases, 11,852 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 832,125 confirmed cases, 6,197 confirmed deaths, and 817,698 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Austria, home of the victim for the flashpoint for World War I: 539,561 cases of the virus, 9,275 confirmed deaths and 494,377 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    Note- Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says his administration OPPOSES all attempts at creating a COVID-19 vaccine passport.  Joe Biden- F*** you and your attempt at forcing everyone to get the “mark of the Beast.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday J:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,066.96, DOWN 104.41 points (-0.31%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,045.39, DOWN 14.25 points (-0.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,958.55, DOWN 12.54 points (-0.32%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.39 per barrel, -0.16 (-0.26%).  The price of GOLD is $1,683.30 per troy oz., -0.60 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $24.06 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,156.00 per troy oz, -1.70 (-0.15%) while the price of COPPER is $3.98 per pound, 0.00 (0.00%).[xvi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,592.00 per troy oz, +53.50 (+2.11%).[xvii] The price of RHODIUM is $26,900.00 per troy oz., -600.00 (-2.18%).[xviii]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.57.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Bosnian and Herzegovina convertible mark, one greenback equals 1.67.[xix]  
  71. 2021 Tuesday K: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.896 per gallon, $2.867 in Florida, $3.660 in Hawaii, and $3.325 in Washington state.[xx]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,112,715,077,810 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven running amok. 
  72. 2021 Tuesday L: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE III– Former CBP head Mark Morgan says that more than 30,000 illegal aliens have been released into the United States on their own recognizance since January by the Biden administration.   In Texas, a facility designed to hold 250 illegal aliens is now holding more than 4,000 thanks to the fraudulent Biden-Harris administration.   Photos continue coming out via clandestine sources showing the cruel and inhumane treatment the illegals have brought upon themselves.  Repeatedly raped, beaten, traumatized, and molested on the journey here, they suffer more rape and enslavement once they manage to escape illegal holding pens.  The cartels keep them in bondage here.  People, everyone arm up while we still have the opportunity.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, is seeking information on the $87.9 million contract the federal government has made with hoteliers in the country so they can send excess illegal aliens to hotels.   What the f*** is going on?  Why do the Democratic-Socialists hate the American people as much as they do?   Finally, Sean Spicer asks WHY BORDER CZAR “Kooky Kamala” Harris HAS no border-specific meetings on her miniscule agenda?  Why?
  73. 2021 Tuesday M: Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1646 with a $152 million jackpot on the line tonight.  Here are the numbers: 11, 37, 47, 53, 56, and Mega 15.  Out of 77,199 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,144 apiece.

[i] We promoted the music of the Moody Blues and of the band’s members beginning on Monday, 23-October-2017 through Sunday, 11-February-2018.  We definitely hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[ii] We began promoting the music of Love, the famed Los Angeles, California, rock band on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  Please seek out the music of this awesome band.  This group was among the best of the 1960s.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Yardbirds- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds, themselves, on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through vocalist Paul Rodgers of both Free and Bad Company on Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope you will check them all out.

[iv] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[v] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

88. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2022

2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS- Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them. Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings. We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.

  25. 1932 Tuesday: Jack Benny debuts on radio on Ed Sullivan’s New York Interview program.
  26. 1936 Sunday: Nazi propaganda claims 99% of Germans voted for Nazi candidates.  More than 82 years in the 2020 Presidential Election, the same types of liars will claim that slobbering Joe Biden, a senile, pro-communist China-loving loser received 80 million votes over the 76 million for President Donald J. Trump.  Everyone knows that the majority of Germans did not vote for the Nazis just as the world knows eight decades-plus later that a loser like Joe Biden received 80 million popular votes.  It’s a bunch of malarkey.
  27. 1940 Friday: Joe Louis knocks out Johnny Paycheck in 2 to retain heavyweight-boxing title.  Elsewhere, Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov announces that the Soviet Union ‘will remain neutral in the war between Nazi Germany and France and Britain.’  Boy, does he have a surprise coming his way in June 1941.  Speaking of the Soviets, they are looking to nick off Bessarabia from Rumania which will put the Rumanians in the Axis camp.
  28. 1941 Saturday: As the British continue pushing through Ethiopia on the way to liberate the capital of Addis Ababa from the Fascist Italians, Italian civilians- who have no love for the war imposed upon them by Il Duce- are begging for protection from the British.  Renegade Askari troops are running amok murdering, raping, and torturing Italians wherever they find them.
  29. 1942 Sunday: Things are dire for the British indeed when they begin floating the idea of granting independence to their crown colony of India following a successful conclusion to World war II.  They desperately need Indian colonial troops to help them prosecute the war on all fronts.   Meanwhile, the RAF bomber command begins attacking civilian targets in Germany.  The strategy is to harm the civilian population as much as possible with the idea of driving them to take down the Nazi government.  Of course, this will never happen, and the German people will suffer horribly at the hands of their enemies.

  31. 1944 Wednesday: Imperial Japanese forces continue trying to invest the eastern Indian city of Imphal, perhaps one of their worst-planned, self-inflicted military disasters yet.  When they should have been withdrawing their forces to points further east to defend the territories nearer to home conquered by them in late 1941-mid-1943, they have the idea that the people of India will join them in destroying the British.  This won’t happen- the Brits promised the Indian people their independence.  
  32. 1945 Thursday: During World War II, March 29 is the final day Nazi Germany launches B-1 attacks against Great Britain while the Soviet Army on the Eastern Front mauls the German 4th Army to the point that it no longer is battle-worthy.  In Hungary, as the Germans continue being forced back by the Red Army, Hungarian troops are deserting in droves and joining with the Reds.  They must do what they must to survive this horrendous conflict.  Still, the Germans can dish out a harsh mauling here and there.

  41. 1971 Monday: U.S. Army 1st Lt William L Calley, Jr. found guilty in the My Lai (Vietnam) Massacre.  The military tribunal convicted Lt. Calley of 22 deaths and sentenced him to serve three years of house arrest.  Meanwhile, a jury in Los Angeles, California, recommended the death penalty for Charles Manson and three female followers for the 1969 Tate-La Bianca murders; however, a judge later commuted the sentences.

Bush at the White House.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com bullying, the nation of Dominica withdraws its diplomats from the Republic of China- Taiwan- and sends them to Beijing.  Cowards.  Meanwhile, scientists are all agog at having found methane in the Martian atmosphere which means there could be organic processes occurring on the Red Planet.  We suspect there are- where’s there’s water, folks, there’s life and where there’s life, there’s methane.
  56. 2005 Tuesday: In war-devastated Iraq- thanks to the Bush-Cheney administration- three Romanian journalists undergo kidnapping by violent jihadists.  Although these poor souls face having their heads lopped off, it’s clearer that the scumbags holding them want to charge a massive ransom for their safe return.  We shall see.
  57. 2006 Wednesday: Christian convert Abdul Rahman flees Afghanistan and receives asylum in Italy.  Multitudes of Afghan clerics and government officials demand his extradition back to his home country so they can show him what Islamic ‘justice’ is.
  58. 2007 Thursday: Once again, a militant hegemonic Iran is up to no good.  The U.N. Security Council is wagging a finger at them in ‘grave, grave concern’ over the Iranian Revolutionary Guard capturing and imprisoning 15 British Royal Navy and Marines they claim entered their territorial waters.  Time to drop some neutron bombs on these sand maggots.
  59. 2008 Saturday: Liberals are creaming their pants around the world as today is EARTH HOUR, a time in which, slobbering liberals encourage everyone to go without ALL nonessential power between the hour of 8-9:00 P.M. local time.  This will show those dastardly energy-guzzling scumbags like Senator John F. Kerry, D-MA.
  60. 2009 Sunday: At a nursing home in Carthage, North Carolina, a POS gunman goes on a rampage killing at least 8 people and wounding another 3.  Democrats immediately begin screaming for ‘GUN CONTROL!  CONFISCATE ALL GUNS!  DESTROY THE NRA!’  To be expected, every time some schmuck uses a gun for evil.
  61. 2010 Monday: At least 38 people die and 60 suffer injuries when two female suicide bombers carry out two separate terrorist attacks at Moscow Metro stations Lubyana and Park Kultury.   Elsewhere, in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi and her political movement, the National League for Democracy, announces that it will boycott the upcoming elections because of the corruption of their government.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis calls for the Federal Reserve to limit its purchase of U.S. Treasuries because they ‘feed the fire’ of inflation.  Meanwhile, from one end of the Near and Middle East to the other, people are running amok during the ‘Arab Spring.’  Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is assuming control of the entire government after two weeks of violent protests.

  65. 2014 Saturday:  Russia makes assurances that the country will not invade Ukraine in its efforts to resolve the dispute over its annexation of Crimea.  Of course, the Russians have already gobbled up the Crimea and will soon be waging undeclared war in eastern Ukraine on behalf of ‘Russian separatists’ there.
  66. 2015 Sunday: To combat the ISIS thugs, Egyptian President Fattah al-Sisi announces that moderate Arab states will begin allowing their militaries to work with one another since Barack Obama cut off aid to Egypt, Jordan, and others.  Saudi Arabia has already been battling Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.   Meanwhile, Pakistan is sending a Boeing 747 to evacuate its diplomats and civilians out of that crumbling country.
  67. 2016 Tuesday: Due to increasing strife and chaos along the southern border of Turkey with Iraq, the U.S. State Department as well as the Pentagon begin ordering all diplomatic and military personnel to evacuate.  ISIS is continuing to run amok in Syria butchering and killing people all over the place so in order to avoid an international incident, it’s time to begin withdrawing U.S. personnel.  We’d hate to go to war in Syria, right (or have we already been fighting there)?  Elsewhere, Breitbart News reports that Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is charged with battery for allegedly having pushed their reporter, Michelle Fields, away from his candidate on March 08.  What a load of crap.

  69. 2018 Thursday: Because the U.S. Department of Homeland Security failed to notify screened asylum seekers that their one-year period for requesting asylum was going to end, thus prompting the illegals to hurry up with their claims, Judge Ricardo S.

Biden of an ‘inappropriate kiss.’  Oh, well; it’s not the first time.   Elsewhere, a judge in the Cayman Islands, a judge throws out a law stipulating that marriage is between one man and one woman and thus legalizes with the stroke of a pen gay marriage.  And another one bites the dust.
  71. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to the Wuhan Flu leaving China and enveloping the world, the number of confirmed global cases sits at 718,685 what with 33,881 confirmed deaths from the virus.  Meanwhile, in the United States, we know of 139,675 cases with at least 2,436 deaths.  China continues trying to alleviate itself of the sole responsibility as creators of this horrendous virus, but everyone knows the communists sitting pretty in Beijing are the culprits and that when the crisis passes, they will be held to account for it.  Shame on them: your plan to take out President Trump by ruining the global economy is a complete failure.
  72. 2021 Monday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– First, we hear that Joe Biden’s administration won’t lift the Trump-imposed tariffs on the People’s Republic of (communist) China.  This remains to be seen.  Next, Joe Biden says he has no plans on meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Joe plans to take a tough stance towards Pyongyang.  We shall see what the gets us.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump made a surprise visit to a wedding being held on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago and much to the delight of the guests began ripping into feeble old Joe Biden.   In other Joe Biden news, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Uncle Joe and his administration for labeling everything RACIST or calling it JIM CROW.  We agree.  Enough is enough already![iv]
  73. 2021 Monday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS I– In the Suez Canal, after offloading the quarter-mile-long Panamanian-flagged, Japanese-owned container ship, an armada of tugboats and cranes was finally able to get the ship back into the water.  Global economic losses per day due to the complete stoppage of canal traffic is estimated to be at $9 billion per day.  Prices on all goods will go up while others will once again be snapped up by hoarders.   Next, a report on One America News says that U.S. banks are busily divesting from communist China Tech and mainstream media companies.  Good.  They are a bunch of propagandists.   Next, Kim Jong Un says that the ‘United Nations is trying to negate his nation’s ability to defend itself from foreign attack.’
  74. 2021 Monday B: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– late last night, we were able to witness video in which a Baby Evita look-alike with BIG GOO-GOO EYES and a black face mask was prohibiting U.S. senators from filming the outrageous human rights abuses occurring in border holding pens for illegal aliens.  Apparently, the Biden administration has hired a bunch of young leftists to shield anyone from getting too close to the illegal aliens, languishing in squalid conditions far worse than what Kim Jong Un does to three generations of dissidents in his country.   This is contemptable and it must stop NOW.  Speaking of the border, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, supposedly the nation’s vice president, says she (and Uncle Joe) are NOT going to visit the southern border anytime soon but that she- as the new BORDER CZAR[v]– will meet with Central American leaders so she can address the illegal alien invasion at its source(s).   (Note- the administration says they are working on a plan but won’t say what the plan might be.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM suspect it will be sending trillions of taxpayer dollars to Third World despots and thugs).
  75. 2021 Monday C: POLLING NEWS– a recent poll shows that 57-percent of the American people disapprove of Joe Biden’s handling of the Second Amendment and his bid to outlaw all guns.  The same poll says that 54-percent of the American people view the activities along our southern border as a CRISIS although Uncle Joe and his bought-and-paid-for fake news media hacks do their best to avoid calling it as such.   Another poll shown on Newsmax says that a significant percentage of the American people view Cancel Culture as a dire threat to liberty and freedom.  Time to destroy it, folks.
  76. 2021 Monday D: COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS NEWS– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows blasts Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci for their revisionist rearrangement of what we know about COVID-19, whence it came from, and how bad it is.  The American people are tired of the constant barrage of lying and intimidation on the China Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control have extended the moratorium on evictions.  We didn’t know the CDC was in control of who could and who could not be evicted?  At what time will landlords be provided aid?  In other CDC news, the agency nixed Governor Ron DeSantis’ request to get the cruise lines up and going now that the Chi-Vi is scaling back.  Governor DeSantis says he will fight them and is threatening to sue.  Next, a new report released by the World Health Organization says that ‘the Chinese Virus came from animals, NOT from the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which if we are to believe this crock of festering crap returns us to the Wuhan Meat Market Malady Theory (although the virus came from animals and the Chi-Coms inside the institute were studying bat viruses.  Ba-bam!).
  77. 2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS– Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them.  Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings.  We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.  Elsewhere, the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is underway with opening statements made by both sides.  If the jurors follow the law, from what we saw already, it appears that Officer Chauvin will be cleared of all charges and will be reinstated on the force, IF the jurors follow the law.  Meanwhile, an Antifa mob in Salem, Oregon, attacked a Blue Lives Matter rally.  Next, reports from the Windy City from last night say that a car full of shooters pulled up alongside a party bus at a stoplight and lit the vehicle up.  One was killed outright and at least three others suffered injuries in the unprovoked assault.  Finally, in the Washington State House of Representatives, a bill has been passed prohibiting open carry at the state capitol and on state property.
  78. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– The National Rifle Association reports that business is good with an average of 1,000 new signups each day.  Excellent.   Meanwhile, Los Angeles County, California, has decided that violent crime has gotten so out of control that they are going to REFUND the law enforcement budget $36 million they cut from it several months back.  Next, Piers Morgan comes to the defense of Sharon Osbourne, recently fired from the ‘chick show,’ The Talk, for defending him.  Whatever the f*** happened to the right to express one’s opinions? 
  79. 2021 Monday G: GOP NEWS I– Senator Dan Sullivan, R-AK, says he will support his fellow senator, the highly unlikable party hack, Lisa Murkowski, who is facing a tough road ahead.  Alaska GOP politician Kelly Tshibaka, former Department of Administration commissioner, is seeking to primary Senator Murkowski in 2022.  Where can we send money, Kelly?   Elsewhere, famed attorney Linn Wood says he is seeking to become head of South Carolina’s GOP.  Uh, okay, didn’t you cost the state of Georgia TWO Senate seats, Mr. Wood?  Next, Senator Thom Tillis, R-NC, tells the media that he has a ‘prostate cancer’ confirmation from his doctor.  Good luck, Senator.  Hang in there.
  80. 2021 Monday H: POPULAR CULTURE NEWS– If you want to know where the blood of aborted fetuses go, rapper Lil NAS X and Nike are offering a limited-edition shoe, 666 pairs at more than a grand each dedicated to Satan.  In fact, the shoes are so ‘satanic,’ that the ‘Church of Satan’ has said, ‘right on, son, right on.’  Each pair of tennis shoes is made with ONE DROP of human blood which is sick enough, but the shoes are covered with satanic symbols and the like and what is clear to us is that although many will dismiss the shoes as a passing fancy, in a culture where Christianity and Judaism is under constant assault, this is evil shit.  Nike says we just make them, we neither approve nor disapprove of the shoes.  Wow.  NO more Nike shoes for us as this is sick shit.  Elsewhere, the author of Captain Underpants- David Murray Pilkey Jr.- has just had his books banned for…wait for it…you guessed it: PASSIVE RACISM.  Wow.
  81. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– New Mexico is suing the Biden administration over its plan to store nuclear waste in the Cactus State.  We keep waiting for someone such as Elon Musk to find a way to recycle and reuse spent uranium.  That would be a game changer as far a nuclear energy goes.  Imagine if atomic energy became so commonplace and safe that all ships and aircraft could be powered via nuclear energy, it would flatten the costs of fuel for massive cargo ships such as the one recently freed in the Suez Canal.   Speaking of Elon Musk, first, the Biden administration is floating a $3 trillion ‘infrastructure/green energy bill’ that will rely heavily on high-speed rail crisscrossing the country.[vi]  Folks, in California, each mile of the failed HSR project costs $200 million and much of the work done on it is done by the Chi-Coms.[vii]  Elon Musk is in the process of making the Hyperloop a reality just as he is a tunnel network that will permit self-driving vehicles to zip people underground across the country at 150 mph or more.  Hey, Uncle Joe: how about working with Elon Musk you senile old f***?   Speaking of energy, a new report says that the Chi-Coms are responsible for more than HALF of all coal emissions on the planet and it’s the United States that must use windmills and solar farms.

  83. 2021 Monday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,653 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  84. : COVID-19 STATISTICS in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,541,928 confirmed cases (less than yesterday’s count), 56,072 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the next highest state after California- Arizona: currently, they have 836,253 confirmed cases, 16,745 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Serbia, home of the flashpoint for World War I: 566,689 cases of the virus, 5,039 confirmed deaths and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[viii]    Meanwhile, Joe Biden is demanding that states reimpose their mask mandates so we can ‘beat the virus.’  F*** you, Joe.  NOT our president.
  85. 2021 Monday M:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,171.37, UP 98.49 points (+0.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,059.65, DOWN 79.08 points (-0.60%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,971.09, DOWN 3.45 points (-0.087%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.10 per barrel, +0.54 (+0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,710.10 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $24.72 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,183.40 per troy oz, +1.70 (+1.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.04 per pound, +0.01 (+0.20%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,541.50 per troy oz, +3.00 (+0.12%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $27,500.00 per troy oz., -700.00 (-2489%).[xi]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.57 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.60.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Bolivian boliviano, one greenback equals 6.85.[xii]  
  86. 2021 Monday N: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.897 per gallon, $2.874 in Florida (now that Chef Cheryl and her family have relocated there), $3.645 in Hawaii, and $3.326 in Washington state.[xiii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,109,117,789,302 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.  Meanwhile, Mayor Pete- our ‘transportation secretary’- says the Biden administration has NO plans at raising gasoline taxes or taxing drivers a mileage fee (which means they probably do) in order to pay for the upcoming $3 trillion ‘infrastructure plan.’  I guess we shall see.
  87. 2021 Monday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– It would appear that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has yet another accuser claiming that the ‘Gropin’ Gov’ groped her and didn’t want to let go.  What a POS and yet like a turd stuck to the side of the crapper, this piece of fecal matter refuses to go.  The new accuser says that the handsy governor groped this woman while touring her FLOODED flipping home.  Ye gods, is there NOTHING this scum bum won’t do?  Speaking of floods, several people lost their lives in flash-flooding in Tennessee.
  88. 2022 Tuesday: By now, everyone knows the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Rick Danko released his third solo album, “Live on Breeze Hill,” on July 27, 1999.  The album was recorded at a live show three months before the legendary bassist/fiddler/vocalist died which makes it an alluring show.  Always cursed with substance abuse problems and subsequent poor health, Danko was a fragile individual yet a brave, powerful performer.   Of the 12 cuts on this superb outing, most of them are Band classics, both tunes he and Richard Manuel sang as well as one or two from Levon Helm.  Also included are some of his originals which makes it a glorious purchase to be sure.  Joining Danko are friend, Garth Hudson (keyboards/accordions), Jim Weider and Roger Mason (guitars, basses), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), three brass players and another keyboardist.  We certainly hope that you will seek this album out at your favorite haunt for music and give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.

[i] The young United States should have taken ALL of Mexico down through the Central American countries to where the southern end of Panama meets the northern end of Colombia.  Had we done that, we would have solved the issue of illegal immigration.  We should have also taken Cuba in 1898 and kept her just as we should have gone back and taken Canada.  What a glorious nation we would have, one now being overrun with Third World illegal aliens.

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

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

[iv] Democrats think that if they call everything racist or Jim Crow or some combination of the terms that they can guilt or shame the American people into silence.  Here’s the deal- we don’t give a flying f*** anymore, call us racist as much as you like but one day when a REAL incidence of racism occurs and no one gives a damn, you will only have yourselves to blame.

[v] Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says that ‘putting (“Kooky”) Kamala Harris in charge along the border is akin to putting banned cyclist Lance Armstrong in charge of the DEA.’  You just don’t do that because as everyone knows, the former senator from California believes that border officials and immigration authorities are akin to the Ku Klux Klan.  F*** you, “Kooky Kamala.”

[vi] National debt in the United States sits at $28 trillion and is expected to double within 30 years or less.  Yikes.

[vii] In France, the cost per mile of high-speed rail is $30 million which still seems high.  However, in the United States, projects such as these are big pools of money from which, liberal politicians reward not only their flunkies and lackeys but also themselves which is why work is tortuously slow and cost overruns are increase by the day.  The people of California do not want this crap and yet the crap is forced upon us and Joe Biden plans to see that the money-go-round continues.

Colonel Pierre Langlais confronts Colonel Christian De Castries and demands a reordering of the command structure.  Castries is somewhat subdued, his chief-of-staff Lt.

  60. 2016 Thursday: At the Hague, the European Court finds Radovan Karadžić, leader of the Bosnian Serbs during the war in Yugoslavia in the 1990s guilty of war crimes.  His main crime was the 1995 massacre at Srebrenica in which Serb forces murdered loads of Muslims.  He received a sentence of 40 years.  Elsewhere, in the U.S., an appellate court upholds a lower court’s ruling in New York seeking to keep Senator Ted Cruz off the GOP presidential primary ballot because of his Canadian birth.  This is hardball by Congressman Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district and a close friend of candidate Donald J. Trump.  
  61. 2017 Friday: Thanks to schmucks such as House Speaker Paul Ryan, the Trump administration and their GOP allies in the House of Representatives are forced to pull their plan to overturn Obamacare and to replace it with a better plan.   Meanwhile, the House Intelligence Committee goes to war with itself over the bogus Trump-Russia Collusion scam, the very same engineered by the Democrats.  Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, and ranking member, the locoweed Adam Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, are butting heads over information coming out that shows that the Obama administration SPIED on the then-Trump campaign.
  62. 2018 Saturday: In the streets of Washington, D.C., and cities across the country, hundreds of thousands of teens and their supporters rallied against gun violence, spurred by a call to action from student survivors of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., which left 17 people dead.  In other crazy news, likeminded European liberals- these in Paris- are also protesting against gun violence- in the U.S.  The French people are demanding Americans give up their guns- so says the losers of 1940, Dien Bien Phu in 1954, and Algeria from 1956 to 1962.  LOSERS with a capital “L.”
  63. 2019 Sunday: On this Sunday, Attorney-General Bill Barr put out a brief on the 22-month Robert S. Mueller III investigation into Donald Trump, Trump campaign officials, and Vladimir Putin’s Russia by saying that ‘Mueller’s team had found no evidence of collusion between now-President Trump, members of his campaign, his friends and family and Russia nor was there any sign of obstruction.’  In effect, this clears the president and those around him other than those convicted of process crimes during the investigation.  The Democrats could not handle the outcome and rushed to the microphones braying like dogs for ALL the evidence and promise to continue the witch hunt into Mr. Trump.  The investigation began- many believe- in late 2015 or early 2016 and involved members of the Hillary Clinton team, Barack Obama Justice Department and FBI officials, as well as foreign operatives hired by members of the Obama team to set up candidate- and then- President Trump.  
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Democrats continue stalling in the U.S. Senate by holding up Wuhan Virus relief legislation by trying to stuff in Green New Deal, Pro-Death, union, identity politics, election fraud such as ballot harvesting in ALL 50 states, and more.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell continues rebuffing them in the hope that honest and legitimate legislation can occur.  Meanwhile, the world around mid-day acknowledges approximately 414,277 cases of COVID-19, with 38,819 new cases over the past 24 hours.  Global deaths are 18,557 what with 2,146 in the previous 24 hours.  In the United States, there are 51,542 cases of the Kung Flu with 8,328 new cases over the past 24 hours.  There is a total of 674 deaths, up by 95 over the previous 24 hours.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closes UP by 11.3% or up 2,112.98 points, closing at 20,764.91.  Bravo. 
  65. 2020 Tuesday A: Bill Rieflin- drummer with King Crimson from 2013-15 / 2017 until today- died in his hometown of Seattle, Washington, on this date at age 59.  Cancer was the cause.
  66. 2021 Wednesday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– in anticipation of tomorrow’s FIRST NEWS CONFERENCE with the press, Joe Biden announces (or his earpiece does) that 40 reporters will be allowed into the briefing.  Next, Newsmax says that the mocking of Joe Biden by our foreign adversaries shows that they neither respect him nor fear him which is not good for the United States.   However, (and we don’t believe this one iota), the American Research Group shows an approval rating for Joe Biden of 60-percent and 33-percent disapproval rate.   (Note- Rasmussen puts Joe’s numbers at 48-percent approve and 50-percent disapprove of him).  Moving on, Joe Biden plans to mark Equal Pay Day as women are harder hit by COVID-19 than are their male counterparts.  Good for you, Joe, pandering like always.  Speaking of old Joe, earlier today he announced that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is now in charge of ‘solving the border crisis.’  (Note- continue building the wall and deport them all and that will help solve the ‘self-inflicted problem’ just as cutting off ALL government aid to illegals will.  Come on Methuselah, do your flipping job!).[vii]   Finally, when reporters asked Old Joe what he thought about North Korea’s recent missile tests, he said, ‘not much has changed.’
  67. 2021 Wednesday A: GOP NEWS– Utah Governor Spencer J. Cox, GOP, signed a measure that will put filters on porn sites within the state.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, GOP-lead states are fighting the good fight against Joe Biden’s increasingly insane policies, wish lists of liberal loony tunes spending and deprivation of the American people’s rights.  Elsewhere, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is pushing the Justice Department to continue the probe into perjury charges against the crackpot witnesses the Democrats trotted out to smear now-Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick should all be doing time in federal prisons for the bulls**t they pulled at his confirmation hearings back in 2018.  Get them, Chuck!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump is supporting Max Miller in his bid to unseat RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez in Ohio’s 16th congressional district.  Gonzalez voted to impeach President Trump if you recall.
  68. 2021 Wednesday B: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I–  The person who used to be known as Prince Harry, aka Mr. Meghan Markle, is taking a no-show gig as the ‘chief impact officer’ at a Silicon Valley startup, Betterup, that will help emotionally challenged individuals- like his wife and boss- overcome their issues.  Bravo, Harry, bravo.  Sort of like Hunter Biden working at Burisma.   Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders says that he is ‘uncomfortable’ with the permanent ban placed on President Donald J. Trump by Twitter.  However, President Trump says he has ‘no plans to return to Twitter,’ seeing as how he is in the midst of creating his own untouchable social media platform.   Next, the New York Justice Department says the impeachment probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo could continue for months.  So, charge him with the homicides of 15,000-20,000 people and get him out of office.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Wednesday C: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS–  Vladimir Putin’s chef- businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin- has written to the Federal Bureau of Investigation demanding he be removed from a most-wanted list.  The FBI put a bounty of $250,000 atop his head last month for his apprehension and extradition to the United States over bogus charges he somehow meddled in the 2016 Presidential Election on behalf of then-candidate Donald J. Trump.  He says the FBI must stop offering the reward as it violates several principles under human rights laws.  That’s Joe Biden for you, looking for fall guys he can blame for his own shortcomings such as Hunter Biden being in the hip pockets of both the Ukraine and China.  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declares victory in the recent elections, but the majority is still unclear.   Elsewhere, a massive container ship in the Suez Canal has run aground due to high winds and is blocking passage to other ships.
  70. 2021 Wednesday D: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUNS NEWS– Representative Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says the Dems are ‘playing politics with our lives’ over their renewed drive to strip the American people of their guns.  (Note- we’d like to see them try.  First, there are going to be SO-O-O MANY gun thefts in this country, the cops will be tied up seeking them while secondly, it’s like what former NRA boss Charlton Heston used to say: ‘you can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.  Joe- NO one is going to surrender their guns, NO one.  Come and get them.  Chef Alvin).  Still, after the POS Syrian Muslim refugee Ahmad Al-Aliwi Alissa[viii] killed 10 WHITE people at the King Soopers Grocery Store in Boulder, Colorado, earlier this week, the Dems began to go bat-crap-crazy in pushing their gun-grabbing bills.   Joe Biden says he doesn’t have to ‘wait for Congress’ to begin stripping guns.  Go for it, Joe.
  71. 2021 Wednesday E: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS II– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer[ix] swears on his mother’s soul that the two firearms bills sent to him from the House of Representatives will receive swift attention.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris is urging swift hearing and passage of these gun-grabbing bills.  Interesting note- John Bachman of Newsmax says that the ‘Democrats are hypocrites.  They claim to hate guns, yet they spread guns all over the world’ selling them to thugs, criminals, terrorists, murderers, and other human trash.  He reminded his viewers of the Obama era “Fast and Furious” program that put military grade weapons into the hands of Mexican narcoterrorists.  
  72. 2021 Wednesday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– ‘The (Communist) Squad in Congress now claims that NOT supporting statehood for Washington, D.C., is RACIST.  The federal district was NEVER intended to be a state, girls, it was pulled together from several states so that NO single state would claim rights to sole ownership of the federal government.  No, just because lots of black folks live there does not make it ‘racist.’  Everyone living in the District of Columbia knows the score.  Shut the f**k up.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that H.R. 1 is a bald political power grab.  Mitch- you should have supported President Donald J. Trump when you had the opportunity.  Now, shut the hell up.  Finally, the Wisconsin State Assembly authorizes an investigation into election fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election.
  73. 2021 Wednesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Coincidence of the Day”- last week, Dr. Moncef Slaoui said that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears 90-percent of getting the COVID-19 vaccine programs underway what with Operation Warp Speed and Joe Biden just 10-percent.  Today, GlaxoSmithKline terminated Dr. Slaoui for purported sexual harassment allegations against him.  Wow.  Is this not amazing?  Cancel Culture strikes yet again.  Defend Trump and you lose your job.  Well, we defend Trump- WTF are YOU going to do to US?   Next, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says AstraZeneca soon to release an updated report on its coronavirus vaccines.   Meanwhile, Caribbean nations are begging the Biden administration NOT to be stingy with the coronavirus vaccines, to please, remember the countries on the U.S.’ third border.  (Note- when these countries do something about the horrendous foodborne illness visitors typically acquire upon eating their first meals there, we will send you vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU).  Finally, five years after his untimely death, famed rock star Prince’s ashes will go on public display.
  74. 2021 Wednesday H: ODDBALL AND HUMOROUS NEWS OF THE DAY– By a final vote of 52-48 (with RINO Senators Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, and Susan Collins, RINO-ME, confirmed the nomination of tranny (woof!) former Pennsylvania Health Secretary Rachel Levine to become the next assistant secretary of health.  Okie dokie.  Aren’t we proud as a nation!  Next, a chick with a dick,[x] Kataluna Enriquez has been crowned Miss Silver State USA, one step away from competing in the Miss Nevada USA pageant.  In yet another slap to the faces of women and girls, the tranny beat out numerous biological females to become the first beauty pageant winner with a dong swinging down under.  Folks, what the hell is going on?  Almost makes one wish the Chinese would take the country over.  Oh, speaking about ‘affronts’ to women, “Kooky Kamala” Harris and former President William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton are teaming up on a program with which to empower women.  Does anyone see the irony in this? [xi] (They are already receiving massive blowback for this bulls**t symposium).
  75. 2021 Wednesday I: U.S. BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, swears to ‘shut the Senate down’ if the Biden administration denies him access to the southern border.  Senator Marsha Blackburn was visiting the border today and she said, ‘what a mess.’  Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the ongoing border catastrophe.’  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden’s rhetoric and his first day actions are responsible for the border catastrophe.’   Speaking of this crisis, this holocaust, Joe Biden has yet to name a nominee to head the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol.   Meanwhile, Congressman Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the ‘migrants must be made known as to what awaits them on this side of the border.’  The border states must find a way with which they can finish the wall on their territory if they cannot do it on federal land.  Steve Bannon, where the hell are YOU and YOUR charity to fund border wall construction?
  76. 2021 Wednesday J: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 124,378,693 confirmed cases, +453,805, 2,736,980  confirmed deaths, +9,340, and 70,573,246 confirmed recoveries, +252,735.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,161,747 confirmed cases, up 57,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,411 confirmed deaths, UP 798, and 117,371,050 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. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 220,944 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,648,021 confirmed cases, 57,909 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the commonwealth of the American Samoa: currently, they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Pakistan, home of a large chapter of the Taliban: 637,042 cases of the virus, 13,965 confirmed deaths and 586,228 confirmed recoveries.  
  79. 2021 Wednesday M: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,420.06, DOWN 3.09 points (-0.01%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,961.89, DOWN 265.81 points (-2.01%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,889.14, DOWN 21.38 points (-0.55%).  The price of GOLD is $1,733.10 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.12 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.46%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,172.20 per troy oz, -8.00 (-0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.03 per pound, -0.04 (-0.92%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,640.10 per troy oz, +22.80 (+0.87%). The price of RHODIUM is $29,800.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.70 per barrel, -0.48 (-0.78%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.90.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.   In Barbadian dollar, one greenback equals 2.00. 
  80. 2021 Wednesday N: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.622 in Hawaii, and $3.324 in Washington state.    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,089,823,477,532 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to crumble into nothingness thanks to the Democrats and their trillion-dollar bills.  Donald Trump- time for you to return to office.
  81. 2021 Wednesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Drawing #3545 with a pot of $31 million on the line: 10, 11, 13, 32, 38, and Mega 17.  Out of 111,151 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,815 apiece. Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #831 with a $220 million pot on the line: 04, 09, 17, 27, 38, and Power 18.   Out of 95,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,606. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday P: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS I– Tesla now says that its customers can buy their electric vehicles with Bitcoin.  Having bought $1.5 billion in Bitcoin several months back, any cars bought with Bitcoin will remain in their Bitcoin account- they are not going to convert it into dollars.  Next, the Joint Chiefs of Staff spokesperson said that yes, indeed, North Korea did fire at least one projectile into the East China Sea.  That’s Kim for you- NO respect for Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, as 14 states sue the Biden administration for its almost immediate crackdown on all energy projects on federal lands, the U.S. Department of the Interior announces that it’s going to review all existing and applications for fossil fuel drilling on federal lands.  With a Norwegian-Native American in charge, Debra Haaland, you know there won’t be any new drilling and many existing oil and natural gas leases will be shut down.  Windmills and solar farms.  
  83. 2021 Wednesday Q: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS II– Virginia Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam signs a bill that will end capital punishment in the state.  Since its inception as a British colony, there have been 1,400 executions.  Since the U.S. Supreme Court reinstated the death penalty in 1976, there have been 113 executions which ranks the Old Dominion State second only to the Lone Star State in the number of executions carried out.  Still, Governor “Black Face” says the death penalty should be available for especially heinous crimes but throughout history, the death penalty has fallen mostly on minorities, the mentally ill, and the poor.  Elsewhere, Intel is going to build two chip-manufacturing plants in Arizona, so says CEO Pat Gelsinger.  Not only will it produce chips for its own purposes, but it will also serve as a ‘foundry,’ which means it will build microchips for other companies.  The company will qualify for about $90 million in tax credits when construction is completed, and it will also provide at least 3,000 high-paying jobs.  Even better, it will become an alternative source for chip manufacturing so if Asia craps out or withholds chips from Western nations, problem solved.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday R: END OF THE NIGHT NEWS III– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken visited NATO headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, today and informed our allies that ‘America was back’ and that we would not put our ‘allies in a position of ‘us or them,’ meaning- we guess- that if the Germans want to buy natural gas from the Russians, the nation against whom the victorious Western allies created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to defend against- then so be it.  It is what it is.  Meanwhile, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg invited the Russians to return to having an observatory role in the organization.  Secretary Blinken wants the organization to remain strong against both Russian and Chinese hegemony and that if the Chi-Coms cause problems for one country, they cause them for all countries within the group.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, they blasted the U.S. today for everything from being a racist nation to its out-of-control spending.  Ouch.
  85. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The reformed Band released their next album, “High on the Hog,” on February 27, 1996.  Once again, the group performed numerous covers but what the heck- they performed them with verve, class, and a great deal of sass.  The Band features Rick Danko (guitars, bass, vocals), Levon Helm (drums, bass, vocals, and mandolins), Garth Hudson (keyboards, accordions, saxophones, even vocals), Richard Manuel (piano on one track), Jim Weider (guitars/vocals), Rick Bell (keyboards/accordions/vocals), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), along with guest spots by loads of other talented and well-known musicians, at least 15-20 of them.  While it’s challenging not to have major songwriter and guitarist Robbie Robertson in the fold, it is what it is.  We hope you will seek this album out as it is the first of a trio of new works to come.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

[i] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of Spooky Tooth, Mott the Hoople, and Widowmaker- among other interconnected bands beginning on Friday, 25-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We hope you will check out this collection of great rock music.  Even the worst albums among them beats the crap out of any bull crap music one hears today.

[iii] 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

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

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

[vi] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[vii] Feeble Old Joe said that he would take the news media with him when he went to do a tour of the southern border.  Now that he has appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to do ‘something’ about the border, there no longer is a need to take the media there to see what the hell is occurring down there.

[viii] Speaking of this piece of desert dirt, amazing how all the left-wing news agencies and pundits stopped with the shooter being a WHITE man and then NOT reporting his name so they can suck up to their beloved Muslims.  We have heard unverified reports of the scumbag yelling “Allah Akbar” while he walked up to and then shot his victims at close range.  What if one of the victims had a gun and put a round into the shooter’s face?  That would be awesome.  He had rants all over Facebook blasting those whom he believed were ‘racist against Islam’ and even worse, the vaunted FBI had Mr. Alissa on a ‘watch list.’  Lot of good FBI watchlists are, huh?  Still, losers such as Ilhan Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and ‘Baldy,’ Ayanna Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district all zipped their generally flapping lips so as not to have to admit the scumbag Alissa was one of theirs.

[ix] “Prune Face” would be a good alternative name for Cryin’ Chuck seeing as how we have labeled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi as such.  Dick Tracy had some cool villains.

[x] If you want to see ‘chicks with dicks,’ come to Los Angeles, California, and take a trip down the Sunset Strip.

[xi] “Kooky Kamala” slept her way to the top beginning with powerful Golden State Democrat Willie Brown and Bill, well, everyone knows about Bill.  We don’t have to list all the transgressions against women this guy committed and who can forget that he flew on Jeffrey Epstein’s private plane, what was it- 19 times?  Yikes.

78. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 2022

2009 Thursday: North Korea is up to its old tricks once again- they arrest two American journalists with Current TV- near the border with communist China. Many believe the North Koreans went across the Yalu River and grabbed them up. The North Koreans like kidnapping foreigners and holding them for ransom. Ask the Japanese.

Ford only fell down the stairs of Air Force One ONCE.   No wonder Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to debate Joe Biden publicly.[iv]   Next, while Democrats may promote the benefits of marijuana for everyone (so they can tax the hell out of it), apparently the Joe Biden White House does not approve of its use among staffers.  An unnamed number of staffers have been terminated for past usage as well as present usage.  Watch that CBD oil, folks.

  75. 2021 Friday B: FOREIGN POLICY/OVERSEAS NEWS- the American people are shocked at how the representatives of the People’s Republic of China disrespected representatives of the Biden administration, most notably, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.[v]  The communists Chinese told the Biden administration they ‘have no room to lecture them about human rights abuses when black lives seemingly DON’T matter in the United States.’  Of course, like former U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry allowed the Iranians to abuse him in public on innumerable occasions, so, too, did the Chi-Coms abuse Secretary Blinken.  The Chi-Coms told Blinken, Sullivan, and others in attendance that the ‘United States is NOT approaching the talks from a position of power.’  Our power is evaporating now that Donald Trump is no longer President Trump.[vi] 
  76. 2021 Friday C: In other Chi-Com related news, the U.S. House of Representatives manages to squash an effort by the Republican minority to have Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell removed from the House Intelligence Committee seeking as how he had a lengthy sexual affair with Ministry of State Security secret agent Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, which only recently ended.[vii]  In other foreign news, the U.S. House blasts the military junta in Myanmar demanding they free their detainees.

  78. 2021 Friday E: U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE AND SENATE NEWS- At least 73 House Democrats have signed a petition demanding House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi expel Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, from Congress.  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi is still trying to STEAL the certified election from Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district.[ix]  Why aren’t more Republicans standing up to the old bag and telling her to stop this sort of behavior?  Enough is enough!  Elsewhere, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that ‘the Equality Act does nothing for equality for women.’  Next, never-to-be-outdone, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, D-MA, says that ‘the filibuster is a relic from the Jim Crow era.’[x]  Moving on, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY 14th congressional district, says that ‘challenging “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer would be a lot to put on one person.’  Finally, Senate Democrats say that IF they fail to push through ‘filibuster reform,’ they will be facing ARMAGEDDON in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.’
  79. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- a father in British Columbia underwent arrest for defying a court order.  What was the court order, you ask?  He was speaking about his daughter’s transition from being a girl to being a freak, uh,  we mean ‘boy.’  Excuse us for living.  The father had no clue what was going on and that his wife was aiding the mixed-up kid to become a person of the opposite gender.  The Canadian courts ordered him not to publicly comment on the matter but as a concerned parent, he felt he had no choice other than to express his feelings publicly since the government did not seem to give a dump.  Welcome to the modern world.   In other news, a wax museum in San Antonio, Texas, had to remove a wax effigy of President Donald J. Trump because dimwitted leftists were walking up and punching it in the face.  Put those scumbags in prison.   Speaking of the former president, a man was arrested by the Secret Service for threatening the 45th president as well as other government officials.  
  80. 2021 Friday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- Following Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the person formerly-known-as-Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, Britney Spears is considering doing a similar interview.  Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth says she is ‘not mad at Harry and Meghan, just saddened by their interview’ as are we.  Talk about a pair of ingrates.  Wow.  Never seen anything like it.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden addresses the matter of ‘his dog’ Major’s biting incident of a White House staffer but we learned nothing new about the matter.  Go figure.   Next, the judge in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd agrees that some evidence from Floyd’s 2019 arrest can be heard in the present trial.  Finally, automaker Ford Motor Co. is building ‘computerless trucks’ sans chips due to a shortage of microchips.

  82. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 NEWS- Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, tore the AMAZING Dr. Anthony Fauci to shreds during their meeting yesterday in the U.S. Senate.  The junior senator from Kentucky slammed the guy for politicizing the virus by saying ‘fully vaccinated people do not have to wear masks so why, Dr. Fauci, are you out there prancing around saying we should continue wearing not one mask but at least two for the next TWO flipping years?’  The AMAZING Dr. Fauci tried to give as good as he was getting but the little wimp was getting pummeled.  The only thing that saved this phony was the senator’s time ran out and it was time to move to another lawmaker.   Next, a COVID-19 scientist involved in the vaccines says the next step is working on a cure for cancer. Speaking of the old Chi-Vi, the Centers for Disease Control reduces the social distancing for reopening schools.  Rather than six feet, the distance is now three feet.  Anything to do with Dr. Fauci getting his clock cleaned?  You be the judge.  Finally, Joe Biden is promoting a COVID-19 Hate Crimes bill following the Massage Parlor Massacres in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 16.  Even though the perp says he did not go there to kill Asians, Democrats continue braying like the left-wing sheeple they are that it was an ANTI-ASIAN HATE CRIME.  We’ve already addressed that bogus POS in the past couple of days.

  87. 2021 Friday N: EVENING UPDATES- Foreign News- Houthi rebel drone strikes once again have caused problems for the Saudis as six drones flew in and hit the Aramco facility in Riyadh.  Although they didn’t cause much damage, they still caused enough by causing some fires.  However, oil production was not interrupted.   Next, after the European Medicines Agency evaluated the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, they decided that the benefits far outweigh the risks and thus countries across Europe are back to using it to protect their citizens. 
  88. 2021 Friday O: Ex-con Michael Cohen, former personal attorney for President Donald J. Trump met with New York City D.A. Cyrus Vance, Jr., for the eighth time today.  Vance is trying to engineer a charge with which, he can ‘get’ Donald Trump.  He wants to know if the 45th president exaggerated the value of his real estate investments so he could get much more favorable loans from his bankers.  Stay tuned for further details (although we think Vance is tapping a dry hole).  We shall see.  In other news, apparently the quarterback of the Houston Texans, Deshaun Watson, is being accused by numerous spa employees for behaving in a sexually lewd and aggressive manner, something he wholeheartedly denies.  Poor guy must be a Republican because seldom does anyone go after a Democrat for such matters unless, of course, they are unlikable scumbags such as Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, former Senator Al Sharpton, and former Congressman John Conyers.  Then, one is fair game.  Finally, the feds are charging some Proud Boys leaders for their roles in the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.
  89. 2021 Friday P: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1643 with a $105 million jackpot on the line tonight.  Here we go: 09, 14, 40, 59, 68, and Mega 08.

  90. 2022 Saturday:  Thank God, it’s the weekend…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Robbie Robertson’s sophomore effort, “Storyville,” came out on September 30, 1991.  This outing featured the guitarist/vocalist/keyboardist joined with other like-minded musicians performing Southern/New Orleans-style music.  Always a musical traveler around all of North America and around the world, Robertson was loaded with musical influences that novices can only dream.  Numerous musicians including Bruce Hornsby (piano/vocals), Guy Pratt (who took Roger Waters’ place in the reformed Pink Floyd on bass), and far too many other performers to mention in this brief promo.  We hope you will seek out this excellent album, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Check it out- now.
