SPRING SESSION 2022

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MAY 16, 2022:

Vice President Levi P. Morton; U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Norman J. Coleman; U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan; U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward; U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning; Black Sabbath featuring Ronnie James Dio, King Crimson featuring Robert Fripp, Nazareth featuring Darrell Sweet, Nirvana featuring Krist Novoselic, Robin Trower featuring James Dewar, Savoy Brown featuring Roger Earl, and the Who:

  1. 1003 Monday: The 140th Roman Catholic Pope John XVII assumes his role as the Vicar of Christ on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until November 06, 1003.
  2. 1605 Monday: The 233rd Roman Catholic Pope Paul V became the shepherd of all Christians on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until January 28, 1621.
  3. 1611 Monday: Future 240th Roman Catholic Pope Innocent XI is born Benedetto Odescalchi.  He would pick up his Holy Cross on September 21, 1671 and would lead his global flock from then until August 12, 1689.
  4. 1770 Wednesday:  Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was only 15 years old.
  5. 1771 Thursday: The Battle of Alamance, a pre-American Revolutionary War battle between local militia and a group of rebels called the Regulators, took place on this date in Alamance County, North Carolina.
  6. 1792 Wednesday: Denmark abolishes the slave trade.
  7. 1801 Saturday: In Florida, N.Y., future 24th U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward is born.  He would serve under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson from March 06, 1861, to March 04, 1869.  During this time, he bought Alaska from the Russians, something many saw as foolhardy and a waste of taxpayers’ money.  In fact, so many derided the purchase, they called it “Seward’s Folly;” that is, until massive gold deposits were discovered there.  In 2019, the 45th president of the United States sought to buy Greenland from Denmark, and everyone laughed at him, including the Europeans.  Imagine how important Alaska is to the United States geopolitically and the same could be true of Greenland.  We shall see.
  8. 1817 Friday: Regular steamboat service up-and-down the Mississippi River begins on this date.
  9. 1824 Sunday: The future 22nd Republican vice president of the United States—Levi P. Morton—is born in Shoreham, Vermont, on this date.  He served under President Benjamin Harrison from March 04, 1889, to March 04, 1893.
  10. 1827 Wednesday: In Richfield Springs, N.Y., future first U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Noman J. Coleman is born.  A future Democrat, Secretary Coleman would serve under President Grover Cleveland from April 03, 1885, to February 14, 1889.
  11. 1831 Monday: The future 37th U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning is born.  A future Democrat, he would serve under President Grover Cleveland from March 08, 1885, to March 21, 1887.
  12. 1860 Wednesday: At Chicago, the Republican Party selects Abraham Lincoln as its candidate for the presidency of the United States.
  13. 1861 Thursday: The Confederate government offers war volunteers a $10 premium to join the ranks.
  14. 1863 Saturday: During the Vicksburg Campaign, the bloodiest fighting occurs at Champion’s Hill in Mississippi.
  15. 1865 Tuesday: The 8th U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Andrew Johnson from today until August 31, 1866.

Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority required to convict; 10 days later, the trial ended after two other articles of impeachment went down in flames, too.  The problem was Johnson wanted to follow the wishes of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln who wanted to treat the South with leniency while Lincoln’s holdover Cabinet members wanted to crush them.

  30. 1940 Thursday: Prime Minister Winston Churchill returns to London from Paris as the Nazi juggernaut rolls across France.  For the Germans, the conquest of France is going better than expected.  French troops are in full retreat while the British are struggling to reach the Channel Coast.  General Heinz Guderian’s XIX Panzer Corps is breaking away from the rest of the steam-rolling army to try to beat the Brits to the coast so as to complete the trap and bag tens of thousands of prisoners.

  33. 1944 Tuesday: The first load of 180,000 Jews arrives at Auschwitz Concentration Camp.

  43. 1975 Friday: Japanese climber Junko Tabei became the first woman to reach the summit of Mt.

  58. 2014 Friday: California burning- near San Diego, California, authorities inform the public that at least 20,000 acres have gone up in smoke within the county.   This is the toll of 11 wildfires.  This crap goes on year after year because Democrats will NOT permit proper forest management, won’t build new dams to collect fresh water instead of allowing it to flow out to sea, and putting so many restrictions atop PG&E and other power companies to fight global warming by pursuing renewable energy goals that are unrealistic.  The state requires good governance and it’s not from the Democrats.

  61. 2017 Tuesday: As the ongoing effort to destroy President Donald J. Trump continues, Newsweek reports that UNNAMED intelligence officials warned Israel NOT to share sensitive information with the president because he MIGHT pass it on to the Russians.  (Note- this is a load of crap).
  62. 2018 Wednesday: As talks on a summit between North Korea and the United States continues, Pyongyang says that it ‘might cancel the talks if the U.S. continues demanding unilateral disarmament of its nuclear weapons.  They know what happened to Libya that gave up its WMDs and things did not end well for the regime of Moammar Gaddafi.   Likewise, talks that were supposed to occur between North and South Korea are canceled as a protest of U.S. demands.
  63. 2019 Thursday: According to the Global Drug Survey, English-speaking peoples are more likely to get drunk throughout the year than do, non-English speakers, with the British getting drunk the most, an average of 51 times per year.  Folks, this is bogus information as Russians drink more than anyone and communist nations’ citizens (or authoritarian ones) drinking more than anyone anywhere else.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration finally does something that should have happened long ago and that is to cancel $929 million federal grant funding the disastrous California High-Speed Rail project, a project that seems to enrich Democratic politicians and their Chi-Com overseers.  (Note- we await Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which will make the train what it is- an expensive boondoggle).
  64. 2020 Saturday: Thanks to communist China, the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues as the disease continues causing problems around the world.  However, information coming from independent sources within the totalitarian state report as many as 750,000 cases of the coronavirus with possible number of deaths ranging from 150,000-to-250,000.  Since the authoritarian state won’t tell the world the truth, we must rely on these brave sources willing to put their lives and those of their families at risk to get the truth out to the rest of the world.  Here are the global statistics for today: 4,626,632 confirmed cases what with 311,363 confirmed deaths but 1,679,428 confirmed recoveries which is amazing, the number of recoveries compared to deaths.  In the United States, we have 1,497,244 confirmed cases, 89,420 confirmed deaths, but 272,525 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, state by state, beginning first with the Golden State: 76,793 confirmed cases, 3,204 confirmed deaths, but of course, 0 confirmed recoveries- California, give us the information!  You are no better than flipping communist China!  For Hawaii, we have 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. Ige.  For the once great state of Washington, now beset by a socialist state government, here are the stats: 18,288 confirmed cases, 999 confirmed deaths, but like that fellator Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, NO number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Inslee won’t share the stats.  Vote these scumbags out of office as soon as possible.  
  65. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 163,716,770 confirmed cases, +6,113, 3,393,335  confirmed deaths, +117 and 143,320,593 confirmed recoveries, +77,970.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,715,951 confirmed cases, UP 20,704 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,147 confirmed deaths, UP 308,[x] and 27,136,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,423.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]   
  66. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 283,944 Chi-Vi Deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 175,665 deaths.

  68. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,119 confirmed cases, 6,382 confirmed deaths, and 832,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- South Korea, a rising power in East Asia: 132,290 cases of the virus, 1,903 confirmed deaths and 122,163 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]

  71. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– And they used to complain about President Donald J. Trump using Department of Defense funds to defend the southern border, we learn today that Joe Biden has diverted $2 billion from federal healthcare programs to care for illegal aliens overrunning the border.  Wow.   Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that Joe Biden should relieve “Kooky Kamala” Harris of her duties as border czar because in 54 days in this position, the least popular woman in the United States has yet to visit the border.
  72. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Australia announces it is going to keep its borders closed to all but its own citizens returning home until mid-2022.   Next, the U.S. Department of Defense says that ‘yes indeed, Israel has the right to defend herself.’  Hell, we already know that.  They are on a crusade to eliminate Hamas and other Islamist scum from the planet.  We say continue. 
  73. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– the recount of ballots in Arizona has already yielded evidence that criminal activities did indeed occur in the subsequent hours after the 2020 Election.  There is word that ‘Senator’ Mark Kelly could be recalled, and that Martha McSally returned to her position.  We await further developments.

  75. 2021 Sunday J: Miscellaneous News I–  Joe Exotic is seeking an early release from the slammer due to a possible cancer diagnosis.   Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, 1,500 trailers meant to house the homeless are sitting vacant in parking lots.  In other news, the FBI has re-classified the Alexandria, Virginia, baseball shooting of a few years back as ‘domestic terrorism.’  The dumb SOBs said at first it was a ‘case of suicide by cop.’  How flipping stupid do you think all of us are?  The ‘domestic terrorism’ call was the ONLY call.  (Note- for the BIG GOVERNMENT folks, they need another generation or two of misinformed souls before they can begin pulling the scams on us).
  76. 2022 Monday: We know, we’re behind…

  49. 2011 Sunday: Suzanne Mubarak, wife of ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, has open-heart surgery after having a heart attack brought on by a corruption investigation.  Elsewhere, two suspected members of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb undergo arrest in Tunisia for carrying bombs and explosives near the city of Ramada.
  50. 2012 Tuesday: France swears in Francois Hollande, the 24th President of France.  Elsewhere, Palestinians take to the streets in the tens of thousands to protest Israel having ‘forced them out in 1948 when the Israelis declared their independence.’  Let us get this straight: PALESTINIAN leaders told their people to flee to the boonies rather than remaining and becoming something bigger and better.  Instead, they fled and have been living in squalor for the resulting decades instead of improving their lot with the billions of dollars the global community has given them.
  51. 2013 Wednesday: The Eurozone announces the sixth straight quarter of recession; Germany reports weak growth and negative growth in Spain, Italy, and France.  Elsewhere, a report from eBay hits the news about the sale of what was reputed to be the original recipe for Coca-Cola.  Apparently, the seller found it at an estate sale and listed it at the auction site for $15 million.  BOOM!  The recipe was sold for $15 million.  Truly?  Wow.
  52. 2014 Thursday: According to Brainy History, German company Linde begins constructing a facility to convert wind power to hydrogen; the plant will help Germany in its efforts to increase reliance on renewable energy sources.  Elsewhere, near a prison in Israel where Palestinian criminals, thugs, and terrorists are incarcerated, protests by other Palestinians get out of hand leading to two of them being shot and killed by Israeli troops.
  53. 2015 Friday: A jury sentenced POS jihadist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death for the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that killed three and left more than 250 wounded.  Also, according to Brainy History, Google will begin testing self-driving cars on the streets of Mountain View, California this summer; the company has tested modified versions of existing vehicles but will now test cars developed specifically for self-driving.
  54. 2016 Sunday: Suicide bombers continue carrying out attacks across Iraq.  North of Baghdad in Taji, suicide bombers hit a plant that manufactures cooking gas killing at least 18 people and wounding God knows how many more while across the rest of the country, Islamic thugs kill another 12-15 people.  What the hell is wrong with these people?
  55. 2017 Monday: Federal prosecutors prosecute the first case of a hate crime directed at a transgender under the federal Hate Crimes Act, the murder of Mercedes Williamson.  Meanwhile, in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, the authorities declare a state of emergency after a cholera outbreak kills at least 115 people and sickens numerous others.
  56. 2018 Tuesday: Once again, Palestinians acting crazy costs them big time.  Along the border between Gaza and Israel, Israeli security forces are forced to kill 58 and to send another 1,700-plus to the hospital because the angry rioters were protesting the moving of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem where it belongs. 
  57. 2019 Wednesday: Angering the Pro-Death movement, Alabama passes a law restricting abortion to all but the most extreme cases.  The ban includes abortions based on rape and incest.  It is what it is.  Sadly, numerous court challenges by the Pro-Death lobby have kept it blocked from implementation.  Next, President Donald J. Trump granted a full pardon to Conrad Black, a former newspaper publisher who had written a flattering political biography of Trump.  (In 2007, a jury convicted Black of fraud in 2007 and he spent more than three years in prison).  Next, California fire officials said an investigation found that power lines owned by PG&E Corp. had sparked a blaze that killed 85 people and nearly destroyed the town of Paradise in 2018; it was the deadliest U.S. wildfire in a century. Elsewhere, Mexico City declares a state of emergency after air pollution reaches toxic levels.  How come the environmentalists are down there screeching about how Mexico is destroying the environment?
  58. 2020 Friday: Blue states continue to chafe under far-left pro-communist China governors.  In California, things continue being locked down with ultra-left Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti promising a lockdown of the city through August.  Meanwhile, nut-bag Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer continues crying about how ‘Nazis and KKK and pro-Confederacy, misogynists, and other horrible white trash are trying to drive her from office.  Bitch: YOU need to go.  Elsewhere like in New York and other states continue suffering and dying while Red States like Georgia and others that have reopened or are reopening as we speak continue to see fewer cases and far less deaths. 
  59. 2020 Friday A: COVID-19 Kung Flu stats for the day: around the globe, we have 4,534,952 confirmed cases, 307,108 confirmed deaths, BUT 1,633,185 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,472,143 confirmed cases, 88,199 confirmed deaths, and 259,834 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the numbers, California first: 73,164 confirmed cases, 3,032 confirmed deaths, BUT 0 confirmed recoveries; the question is WHY?  Hawaii: 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 565 confirmed recoveries.  Washington state where lunatic Governor Jay Inslee demands restaurant owners follow Gestapo methods such as taking names and addresses of diners so his army of SS contact tracers can visit them (people are going to get shot), we have: 17,826 confirmed cases, 991 confirmed deaths, BUT 0 confirmed recoveries.  Like Gov. Gavin Newsom, Gov. Inslee is a political hack and deserves a swift boot in the butt and removal from office.  The American people understand WHO is responsible for this mess, it’s the communist Chinese and their Democratic Party partners.  That’s right, the REAL collusion is between Beijing and the Democratic Party.  You would have to be blind NOT to see it…
  60. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 163,142,091 confirmed cases, +607,971, 3,382,455  confirmed deaths, +11,316 and 142,540,899 confirmed recoveries, +111,035.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,695,247 confirmed cases, UP 24,973 from yesterday’s reporting, 599,839 confirmed deaths, UP 488,[v] and 27,097,597 confirmed recoveries, UP 390,796.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]   
  61. 2021 Saturday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 283,636 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 175,973 deaths.

  63. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,118 confirmed cases, 6,381 confirmed deaths, and 831,950 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Portugal, a once great colonial power: 841,848 cases of the virus, 17,006 confirmed deaths and 802,671 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  64. 2021 Saturday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,382.13, UP 360.68 points (+1.06%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,429.98, UP 304.99 points (+2.32%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,173.85, UP 61.35 points (+1.49%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.51 per barrel, +0.14 (+0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,844.00 per troy oz., +5.90 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.53 per troy ounce, +0.16 (+0.58%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,231.10 per troy oz, +8.30 (+0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.06 per pound, +0.01 (+0.19%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,892.50 per troy oz, +29.61 (+1.03%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.43%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.85.     In Taiwan Dollar, one greenback equals 27.96 and in Tanzanian Schilling, a buck equals 2,313.00 and in Thai Baht, one dollar equals 31.36 of theirs.[xii]    
  65. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.124 per gallon, $2.894 in Florida, $3.857 in Hawaii, and $3.534 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Texas: $2.761.  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- Oman: $2.232 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,290,267,383,104 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  66. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 53rd day in this ‘prestigious post’ and has yet- we repeat- has yet to visit the southern border.  Speaking of the border cataclysm, One America News reported today that the United States has spent $628,716,544 to care for the 312,151 illegals that have managed to cross into the country since New Year’s Day.  In fact, OAN reports that the total number of illegals lurking within the shadows of the country is around 35,511,034 which is what this site has said for more than a decade now, that there are between 35-50 million illegals in the country sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats.  What the hell is going on?[xvi]  Speaking of the illegal alien calamity, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says that ‘California is going to bestow free healthcare on illegal aliens aged 60 and older within the no-longer-golden-state.’  And we thought this POS wanted to keep his job.  He’s a goner… In other border news, Governor Gregg Abbott, R-TX, says that enough fentanyl has been seized along the southern border to kill every man, woman, and child in the state of New York.
  67. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Yesterday, the United States called on Azerbaijan to pull its troops back from the Armenian border.  Elsewhere, as Islamist scum continue their assault on Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that ‘Israel is teaching the Hamas rabble and other Islamists a tough lesson that they cannot get away with attacking the state of Israel.’  Continue lighting ‘em up, Mr. Prime Minister.  Teach that riffraff a lesson they won’t soon forget.[xvii]  There are those, however, who say that Israel is the instigator in all this which is BULLS**T.  It’s BS because the hundreds of millions of dollars given to the Palestinian Authority never seems to go to making the lives of the citizens better but to keep them in squalor.  Gaza could be as prosperous as Israel is but it’s not because the money goes strictly to hate and attacks on Israel.
  68. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– At least 18 states are now lifting mask mandates forced on their citizens during the COVID-19 crisis.  Freedom is slowly beginning to return although you wouldn’t know it up north in Canada where Canadian cops are arresting preachers for holding services. 
  69. 2021 Saturday I: Joe Biden News I– President Donald J. Trump points out the sad but extremely evident truth that all the failures besetting Joe Biden demonstrates he is losing whatever weak grip he had on the United States.  The entire world can see it.  Speaking of decrepit old Joe, he is coming under increasing fire from after reporters shared information about his SECRET Venmo account, one of the most popular peer-to-peer payment apps that a guy like “Pro-China” Joe Biden can use to move money around from the Chi-Coms to the outstretched, greedy hands of family members and friends.  They call it a ‘national security risk.’   
  70. 2021 Saturday J: Joe Biden News II– House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, said yesterday that ‘Joe Biden spends more time helping Hamas and Iran than he ever has Israel.’  What is up with anti-Semitic Joe Biden?  Meanwhile, a new report in the Washington Examiner suggests that when Joe Biden ‘doesn’t like’ the information he is getting from his aides, he lights them up with profanity-laced tirades, sends them trembling into the shadows of the White House.[xviii]  Sad to say, this is yet another sign of increasing dementia on the part of the ‘commander-in-chief,’ the usurper lingering in the White House.  Donald Trump must come back.  NOW.
  71. 2021 Saturday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– In other Joe Biden-related news, his pick for a sensitive position in the U.S. Department of Justice- racist Kristin Clarke- is trying to maintain her nomination by backing away from her own tirades about Republicans in general and now U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  This woman has used loads of hates speech against various conservatives and Senate Republicans are taking her to task for her foul-mouthed rants.  (Note- we expect they will still pass this unfit and unqualified bigot through to the Civil Rights Division.  What a disaster).  In other Biden regime news, Neera Tanden, a person who could not make it through her own confirmation due to similar problems as Ms. Clarke is now a senior White House advisor to President Susan Rice, UH, we mean, Joe Biden.  (Sorry for the gaff).
  72. 2021 Saturday L: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump wished current GOP conference chair in South Carolina- Drew McKissick- luck in his upcoming election battle.  Speaking of President Trump, he spoke to the Ohio GOP on the myriad critical issues facing the ‘Joe Biden administration.’   In other political news, even though hydrogen has proven to be the cheapest, most efficient fuel for cars of the future, Dems in California are pushing forward with ALL electric vehicles which means more coal consumption and dependence upon unreliable green energy sources.  Within the decade, they seek to eliminate all gas-fueled cars which is why this November and November 20222, the citizens of the state must send these Marx-loving liberal losers packing.  Finally, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, is lambasting Fox News Channel for having reported she sought protection from the U.S. air marshals on her return flight home from Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she was ginning up anger the weekend before Officer Chauvin was convicted.  She can blast FNC all she likes but this sounds like something this hypocritical loser would do.[xix]
  73. 2021 Saturday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Law enforcement authorities arrested three skanks who threw a bloody pig’s head and other animal liquids over the FORMER home of a hired expert who testified in the recent trial of Officer Derek Chauvin on his behalf.  Lock these troglodyte bitches up.  Elsewhere, former Green Beret Peter Rafael Dzibinski Debbins has been given a 15-plus-year stretch in a federal prison for having spied for the Russian government for the past 15 years.  What a disgrace.

[i] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of the Little River Band, but you can be sure that one day we will.  In the 1970s, they were one of the all-time great touring rock acts and their record sales were mind-blowing.  Please, stay tuned.

[ii] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016, through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “Let It Be” album appeared on Saturday, 03-December-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[v] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xvi] The amazing thing is that IF someone refers to the ‘replacement theory’ whereby American liberals replace the American population with low-skilled, foreign-born, poorly educated to ignorant illegal aliens, they are called ‘CRAZY’ or even worse, labeled as RACISTS.  While we hate to say this, it sure seems as though the liberals are bent on replacing the American people with illegal aliens.

[xvii] Wouldn’t it be awesome if a meteorite came down and blew the Al-Aqsa Mosque up?  That would be a sign from the heavens to be sure…

[xviii] Remember when the Fake News Media and Democrats everywhere had a massive meltdown when President Donald J. Trump supposedly called Third World nations shithole countries?  Yet, none of them say a peep about Joe Biden launching profanity-laced tirades against trembling staffers, throwing F-bombs and other foul words at them that would make even a guy like President Lyndon Baines Johnson blush? 

[xix] This amazing story has made “Prune Face” Waters our second entry onto the 4th annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Man, we hope she wins.

Currently, Joe is shy 180,087 deaths.

  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

  61. 2018 Saturday: The Ta’ ang National Liberation Army attacks the town of Muse, Myanmar killing 19 civilians and wounding numerous others.   Meanwhile, the Palestinians being what they are set ablaze the main border crossing between Israel and the Gaza Strip at Kerem Shalom leading the Israelis to put out the blaze and then to seal the border to all but the most urgent humanitarian cases.  Of course, since this is the one crossing where most goods flowing into the Hamas hellhole flow.  Loud wailing and screaming from the Untermensch (and their liberal allies around the world like U.S. Democrats).   Ramadan begins in four days which is why the Palestinians are running amok.
  62. 2019 Sunday: The government of Cuba continues to lie: due to the U.S. ‘embargo’ (remember: every other nation in the world trades with this POS communist hellhole) and hoarding by its people, the government must ration more products including vital foodstuffs such as rice and beans.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: Due to the Chinese COVID-19 Virus, Democrat governors around the country continue to extend and prolong their stay-at-home orders even though increasing numbers of Americans are beginning to fight back.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proposes an illegal alien, Pro-Death-friendly $3 trillion Wuhan Virus relief bill which everyone with sense says is “CRAZY!”  Here are the Kung Flu COVID-19 statistics for the day (around the planet): 4,233,504 confirmed cases, 289,932 confirmed deaths, and 1,481,314 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,399,305 confirmed cases, 83,019 confirmed deaths, and 234,607 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, we start with California: 69,715 confirmed cases, 2,802 confirmed deaths, and once again, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, we have Hawaii: 635 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 563 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, we have Washington state: 17,330 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO reports of confirmed recoveries.   Democrat governors, we understand you are messing with the statistics so you can continue the lockdown.  You reap what you sow.  IF you are curious about the numbers in the origin nation of the Chinese Virus, they remain the same as they did two weeks ago.
  64. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 161,052,323 confirmed cases, +726,249, 3,344,095  confirmed deaths, +13,178 and 139,983,418 confirmed recoveries, +83,238.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,584,617 confirmed cases, UP 34,297 from yesterday’s reporting, 597,752 confirmed deaths, UP 808,[x] and 26,618,483 confirmed recoveries, UP 65,764.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]   
  65. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 281,782 chi-vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 180,827 deaths.   Now that the CDC says it’s ‘okay’ for kids aged 12-15 to get the shots, the Biden regime is urging parents to rush their children to the nearest drug store to get their immunizations for the Bat Fu Yuk out of Wuhan, communist China.    
  66. 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: 3,763,165 confirmed cases, 62,463 confirmed deaths, and 2,006,829 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,278,549 confirmed cases, 35,897 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,556 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,376 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 420,192 confirmed cases, 5,663 confirmed deaths, and 203,994 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Military: they have 291,757 confirmed cases, 348 confirmed deaths, and 278,457 confirmed recoveries.[xii]   
  67. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,022 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,794 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- North Macedonia, the birthplace of Alexander the Great (sorry, Greece): 154,372 cases of the virus, 5,151 confirmed deaths and 139,266 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]     
  68. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,587.66, DOWN 681.50 points (-1.99%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,031.68, DOWN 357.75 points (-2.67%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,063.04, DOWN 89.06 points (-2.14%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.65 per barrel, -0.43 (-0.65%).  The price of GOLD is $1,816.70 per troy oz., -6.10 (-0.33%) while the price of SILVER is $27.17 per troy ounce, -0.07 (-0.27%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,218.00 per troy oz, -7.90 (-0.64%) while the price of COPPER is $4.72 per pound, -0.01 (-0.26%).[xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,868.52 per troy oz, -68.71 (-2.34%).[xv] The price of RHODIUM is $27,700.00 per troy oz., -700.00 (-2.46%).[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.16.     In South Korean Won, one greenback equals 1,132.63 and in South Sudanese Pound, a buck equals 130.26 and in Sri Lankan Rupee, one dollar equals 195.50 of theirs.[xvii]    Meanwhile, Tesla, Apple, and Microsoft are driving the stock markets down.  However, credit card debt has fallen by $49 billion over the past year.  Elsewhere, U.S. consumer prices have gone up by 0.08-percent in April which does not bode well for the American people what with the Consumer Price Index up from a year ago by 4.21-percent.  This is the largest increase since 2009.  Hmmm, what does 2021 have in common with 2009?  Let’s see- Obama-Biden were in the White House and now we have the regime of Biden-Harris in the White House.  See the parallels?  In other business news, thanks to the gas shortage slowing deliveries, Chick-Fill-A is rationing its famous secret sauce.
  69. 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 $4.112 per gallon, $2.886 in Florida, $3.840 in Hawaii, and $3.522 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.820.  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- Egypt: $2.114 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,278,809,428,671 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 50 for ‘Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the border.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues the so-called ‘controversial’ Title 42 implemented by President Donald J. Trump back in March 2020 to close the southern border over Bat Fu Yuk concerns to all but the most essential travel.  People are asking where “Kooky Kamala” stands on the Biden regime continuing the Trump policy?  (Note- we all believe that the border remains wide open and that armies of illegal aliens continue pouring across it which is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, lining the border with minefields, laying in foo gas pits, building anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, and \anti-boat obstacles,  as well as to station fast-response units along the border.  We also believe that U.S. Special Forces MUST carry out targeted assassinations of human traffickers, smugglers, and other criminals operating along our southern border).  (Additional note- NO matter what these lying Biden regime officials say, people are still flooding across the southern border.  Period.  In April, more than 178,000 illegals were apprehended crossing the border while 6,000 illegal aliens per day are being released into the interior of the country.  Hunting licenses anyone?).[xxi]
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fighting between the Israelis and the human fecal matter in Gaza continues, thanks to the Biden regime sending billions to the Iranians and millions to the Palestinian terrorists.  Missiles are crisscrossing the border with at least 55 dead, most of whom are Palestinians.[xxii]  The Israelis have launched targeted missile strikes on the Islamic National Bank and the Finance Ministry in Gaza leveling both buildings to the ground.  Speaking of the Iranians, so-called ‘Climate Czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry swore today that he NEVER informed the Iranians of Israeli covert ops in Syria.  The Iranians claim otherwise.  Still, the Biden regime is sending a flunky from the U.S. State Department to broker some sort of peace deal between the warring sides.  Good luck.  (Note- at least befuddled old Joe says that ‘Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.  Exceptionally good, Joe, exceptionally good).
  72. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Joe Biden’s erratic policies according to a new report are giving the Chi-Coms the ‘edge’ over the United States.  We concur.  In another surprise news, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is sanctioning a Chi-Com official, Yu Hui, who USED to hold office that allowed him to persecute the Falun Gong and other religious minorities.  Wow.  Next, Secretary Blinken stressed ‘U.S. resolve’ to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  We bet Mr. Lavrov was trembling in his shoes.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– A new report says that thanks to the Chi-Coms and their release of the ‘VID around the world and to the United States, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. went back up in 2020.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is raising questions about events that have become commonplace during the China Virus pandemic such as lockdowns and restrictions, especially on religious liberties.  Elsewhere, a panel agreed that the WHO- the World Health Organization- should have greater latitude in investigating the origins of pandemics.  Currently, the WHO is in the pocket of the Beijing Bullies.  Moving on, the Buckeye State is giving vaccinated citizens the opportunity to win a lottery of $1 million.  They hope everyone will rush out to get the vaccine.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– White House reporters are lambasting the Biden regime over its lack of transparency.  Dumb asses, listen up!  First, Joe Biden can only get it together once or twice a week.  The man is senile.  Second, what you see is a continuation of the Obama-Biden regime that shut out the news media, conducted its own in-house photography sessions, and even spied and jailed reporters.  YOU OWN THIS.  They are unhappy that the White House comm team edits all quotes before they go to press.  Wow.  Sounds like Joseph Goebbels is somewhere behind the scenes…Elsewhere, 120 former U.S. military and Department of Defense officials are warning about the peril our country faces as well as that from Joe Biden’s mental fitness (or lack of it).
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Biden regime is going to provide federal COVID-19 relief aid to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, Joe Biden is going full-blown Cloward and Piven by pushing his $4.1 trillion spending bill.  He said to the BIG FOUR House and Senate leaders- Kevin McCarthy and “Cocaine  Mitch” McConnell on the right side of the aisle and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- that all he has to do is ‘to snap his (flaccid) fingers and so it shall be.’  Whoa, Joe, whoa. The GOP leaders told ‘Forgetful Joe’ moments later that ‘raising taxes on the American people is a nonstarter.’  
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  According to Newsmax, prosecutors in the Derek Chauvin case asked for an ‘upward departure’ which means that they want Chauvin to get more time than he originally would have due to the fact that he abused his power.  The judge in the case agreed and made a ruling that will allow the sentence to become harsher both for him and the other three officers awaiting trial.   Meanwhile, the POS shooter who opened up in Times Square, New York City, a few days ago and shot three people including a young child was apprehended down in Florida. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Last night, she was running her mouth and today, she is still running her mouth.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, was voted out as House GOP conference chair.  She went to the mics after being humiliated and said she ‘will work to make sure that President Donald J. Trump NEVER gets close to the White House ever again.’  WTF is wrong with you, Liz?  Just cross over to the Democrat side of the aisle, you and your father were NEVER flipping Republicans, you frigging moron.[xxiii]  Ret. Col. Denton Knapp says, ‘Cheney’s ouster was justified.’  Correct.  She is not a team player.  However, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the ‘House GOP will advance with a unified conservative vision’ as the real battle is winning the House (and Senate) back in 2022.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– Yet another Democrat domino topples, this time new tax records show that a former staffer for Senator Dianne “The Disoriented” Feinstein- Daniel Jones who runs the ultra-left-wing, pro-Marxist TDIP, aka the Democracy Integrity Project, colluded with George Soros, the globalist former Nazi now a pro-communist scumbag to fund the so-called ‘Steele Dossier,’ the phony document with which the Democrats went after President Donald J. Trump.  It is amazing as to how as time passes; more information comes to light that continues to show just what an evil, bogus sham investigation the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert S. Mueller III was.  NOTHING BUT CRAP.  Meanwhile, Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, considered to be most at risk in next year’s elections, blasts the Biden regime’s economic policies as being bad for the Granite State.  Wise up, Joe.  Even members of your party are preparing to swim against the current.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Two far-left Democratic-Socialist senators, “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, Hawaii, and “Creepy Cory” Booker, New Jersey, are planning to set up a ‘new caucus’ in the haloed halls of Congress (yeah, right), the BIPOC- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color caucus.  Wow.  Big deal.  ONLY Democrats who are ‘black, indigenous, and people of color’ will qualify while Republicans who identify with those same groups will be kept at arm’s length as though they have B.O.  What a load of crap.  Still, look at the two losers setting it up and we mean LOSERS, with a capital “L.”  Elsewhere, H.R. 1 is stuck in a Senate committee.  We hope it remains there as though it’s in a tar pit.
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: National Security News– The federal government is easing restrictions in 12 states with which to combat the gasoline shortages thanks to the cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline that runs from Texas through 16 other states ending up in Maine.  Yet, the feds do not seem to want to address the hack, claiming it’s a confidential business matter.  Uh-huh.  Experts claim that the cyberattack exposes the lack of required defenses protecting pipelines such as the Colonial pipeline. 
  81. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Rep. Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district, is demanding answers from CEO Tim Cook and Apple regarding their use of SLAVE LABOR in Chi-Com concentration camps in Xinjiang Province and elsewhere within that communist country.  Crickets. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday R: Popular Culture News– The Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2021 are Jay-Z[xxiv], the Go-Gos[xxv], and the Foo Fighters[xxvi] who all got in on their first nomination as well as Carole King[xxvii], Todd Rundgren[xxviii], and Tina Turner[xxix].  Congratulations.  What about the Monkees?[xxx]  Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneres is giving up her TV talk show after 19 years of being a major guiding light.
  83. 2021 Wednesday S: Religion News– Catholic bishops in the U.S. are pushing back against Marxist Pope Francis edict on NOT denying Joe Biden and other wayward Pro-Death politicians by urging everyone to sign onto a petition to make sure the Hyde Amendment continues being the law of the land.  The Hyde Amendment prohibits U.S. taxpayer dollars being used to fund abortions.  (Note- Pope Francis, YOU need to resign NOW).  
  84. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3559 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 01, 19, 20, 38, 54, and Powerball 17.  Out of 127,842 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $14,328 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) Oh Those Donuts in Costa Mesa, CA 92627; (2) Safeway in Walnut Creek, CA 94596; and (3) Easy Money in San Francisco, CA 94122.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #845, the one with $168 million on the line: 01, 19, 20, 38, 54, and Powerball 17.  Out of 68,297 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $12,438 apiece.

As we said yesterday, manager and father Murray Wilson was keeping the Beach Boys at a frenetic pace.  The band’s fourth album, “Little Deuce Coupe,” came out on October 07, 1963, and was a repackaging of sorts of the band’s hot rod songs plus loads of other new tunes.  Brian Wilson was writing at a lightning pace and the tunes were all great to be sure.  Featured here are “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Be True to Your School,” “Shut Down,” “Spirit of America,” and “A Young Man is Gone.”  The band features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and Alan Jardine (rhythm guitar and vocals), a neighborhood friend like Marks.  This is a wonderful album one we know everyone is going to enjoy so zip on out and add this one to your collection- we think you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

[vi] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s.

[xxi] Late in the afternoon- and this is a good one- Newsmax ran a Chiron crawl that said, “The Biden administration, (i.e., the regime), is ordering construction on the border wall to begin again.”  Say what?  We cannot believe that mixed-up, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, drooling old Joe Biden has reordered construction on the wall again.  Say what?

[xxii] Interestingly enough, while lunatic members among the House Democrats continue calling for an end of Israel, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi came out and blasted Hamas, the POS terrorist organization that needs to be eliminated from the face of the planet.  Wow.  Didn’t know “Mumbles” had it in her; still, once the AOC Suicide Squad begins tuning “Mumbles” up, she may very well reverse her statement.

  62. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,974 chi-vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 181,635 deaths.      
  63. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,761,724 confirmed cases, 62,357 confirmed deaths, and 2,005,443 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,275,365 confirmed cases, 35,849 confirmed deaths, and 1,859,688 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,329 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 418,071 confirmed cases, 5,642 confirmed deaths, and 203,349 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., American Samoa, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, and the Northern Marianas Islands become states: they have 4 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 1 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]   
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,000 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,738 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Kenya, the birthplace of the United States’ 44th ‘president’ Barack Hussein Obama: 163,976 cases of the virus, 2,928 confirmed deaths and 113,057 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]     
  65. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,216.69, DOWN 473.66 points (-1.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,389.43, DOWN 12.43 points (-0.093%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,152.10, DOWN 36.33 points (-0.87%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.46 per barrel, +0.15 (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,837.20 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.03%) while the price of SILVER is $27.71 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.16%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,241.60 per troy oz, +0.40 (+0.03%) while the price of COPPER is $4.79 per pound, 0.00 (+0.63%).[xv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,938.34 per troy oz, -21.25 (-0.72%).[xvi] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-1.73%).[xvii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96. In Solomon Islands Dollar, one greenback equals 7.9957 and in Somali Schilling, a buck equals 575.00 and in South African Rand, one dollar equals 13.99 of theirs.[xviii]      The reason as to WHY Wall Street had such a down cycle today is due to fears of oncoming rampant inflation thanks to the inabilities of the Biden regime to continue the Trump economic miracle.  The Bidenistas will bring about a new Great Depression- mark our words.  Businesses are raising prices at the highest rates since the 1980s.   In other news, cryptocurrencies value is higher than that of the U.S. dollar.
  66. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.107 per gallon, $2.877 in Florida, $3.833 in Hawaii, and $3.518 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Rhode Island: $2.894.  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- Bolivia: $2.045 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,274,850,063,528 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Untermensch in Gaza Strip continue attacking Israel, enfeebled old Joe Biden finds himself under assault from both the right and left.  The right wants Israel supported and defended while the left wants to see Israel destroyed.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day stands with Israel to a member.  We say use the neutron bomb on the human scum inhabiting the Gaza Strip and then reclaim the land for Israel.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore says that ‘Joe Biden’s unemployment benefits are keeping Americans out of the workforce.’  Amen.  Regarding the abandonment of Israel by the fraudulent Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump says that ‘Biden’s weakness is causing the massive surge in violence across the Middle East.’  Amen to that, too.   
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News II– In other fascinating news, WOKE leftists are jumping on Andrew Yang for announcing his support for Israel.  And the left eats its own.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is sending out ‘signed letters’ to recipients of COVID-19 relief checks.  Big whoop.  Stick the letters where the sun don’t shine Mr. (Bogus) President.   Finally, new rules coming out of the Biden regime would force doctors and other medical professionals to enable those suffering from gender dysphoria to undergo whatever treatments and irreversible processes they demand.  (Note- while I hate to say this, I am beginning to think that Joe Biden could very well be the Antichrist- Olaf).
  69. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Chile- a nation with a high rate of vaccination against the Chi-Vi is currently experiencing a tidal wave of new Bat Fu Yuk cases thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, a key officer at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that ‘annual booster shots may be required against the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the China Virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the ‘VID.  No thank you, we are not getting the vaccinations no matter what.  Elsewhere, analysis by the New York Times shows that the extremely overcautious Centers for Disease Control are sowing mass confusion over the danger of the Wuhan Flu.   Finally, Missouri and Tennessee are joining other states slashing Chi-Vi relief payments to their citizens.  It’s time for these people to return to work.  Now.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– In Russia, at least seven are dead in a school shooting in that country.  The police have apprehended the suspect.   Next, the Siberian doctor who treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has mysteriously disappeared.   Next, left-wing lawmakers in the U.S. (you know the scum) are screeching about ‘Israel’s brutality’ in defending itself from the 130 or so rockets fired into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  You know our feelings on the topic.  Elsewhere, Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says that Iran is trying to cause problems in the Straits of Hormuz by swamping U.S. Navy and Coast Guard assets with swift boats.’  We say, ‘sink these riffraff scumbags.’
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– The Vatican warns U.S. bishops NOT to deny drooling old Joe Biden communion.  (Note- we know where Pope Francis stands which is why many Catholics are abandoning the church.  The man’s a Marxist and one cannot serve Marx and God simultaneously.  Olaf).   Next, the new White House deputy director for political strategy and outreach- Natalie Montelongo- says, ‘ICE does not have to exist.’  Next, a new poll says that almost two-thirds of Americans believe social media platforms are ripping our country asunder.   Elsewhere, Caitlyn Jenner, running for the governor’s job in California chose to golf on Election Day rather than to cast a vote for President Donald J. Trump.  Hence why we like John Cox.
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, and other members of the GOP are calling for a new probe into the shootings that occurred at the baseball field a few years back when an enraged Bernie Sanders supporter shot several people and either seriously wounded or killed them before being shot and killed by Capitol Hill Police officers.  After all, a week or two ago, FBI Director Chris Wray announced the verdict of ‘suicide by cop.’  Wow.
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In Georgia, prosecutors are going to seek the death penalty against the sex-addicted POS who shot up a pair of Asian massage (brothel) parlors killing eight people, six of whom were Asian women whom the left then leapt atop as a symbol of anti-Asian hate ginned up by the China Virus.   Good.  Convict and execute that punk.  Next, in related legal news, the reason for the divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates is because back in 2019, Melinda was upset that hubby Bill was too close to Jeffrey Epstein, the pervert and pedophile.  We’d throw the guy out, too.  Elsewhere, in other legal news, New York state is celebrating a big victory as a court in the Empire State has thrown out the bankruptcy filings by the National Rifle Association.  Finally, trainer Bob Baffert of the Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, claims that an ointment he used on the horse may have caused its ‘positive’ for doping.  The investigation continues.
  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– Now that Great Britain is going to require photo IDs to vote, President Donald J. Trump points out the obvious that so, too, should the United States.  Of course, to leftists, photo IDs are RACIST.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he is supporting Glenn Youngkin, the GOP candidate for Virginia governor, in the upcoming election.   Another stalwart candidate in upstate New York- Sheriff Mike Carpinelli- is putting his hat into the ring to replace that angry moron, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  We hope he can beat that POS.   Elsewhere, the ex-Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund defended his performance on January 06, 2021, the day of the largest FALSE FLAG POLITICAL OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES and said he feared the ‘appearance of a coup d’ êtat.’   Finally, Wisconsin is considering a law making it mandatory to play the National Anthem in every public venue.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the BORDER CZAR now for 49 days and has yet to take her butt down to the southern border.  What the hell is up with that?
  76. 2021 Tuesday O: Environmental News I– Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, has extended the drought declaration to 41 counties.  It is sad that the state continues allowing fresh water to flow out to the Pacific Ocean rather than confining it behind the walls of new dams.   Meanwhile, the feds have approved the building of the first offshore wind farms.  Elsewhere, in a blow to the Green Meanies, a new report says that temperatures so far in 2021 are far lower than they have been in recent years.  Not good for idiots such as the ‘Squad’ and their push for the Green New Deal.  A win for us.
  77. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1658 with a $402 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 07, 08, 20, 36, 39 and Mega 22.  Out of 163,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $10,622 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys’ third album, “Surfer Girl,” released on September 16, 1963, was their greatest to date yet spawning numerous hits.  The band’s lineup was the same- 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)- but Marks would be leaving soon.  The group knocked out a load of hits on this record- the title track to be sure but also “Catch a Wave,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “In My Room,” and “Hawaii.”  Brian Wilson was having to write at a much more furious pace what with the emphasis being on hits.  Father Murray Wilson, the group’s manager, kept them on a tight schedule of writing, recording, and performing, raking in as much money as was humanly possible and then some.  Great music to be sure, music we hope you will check out and enjoy because the Beach Boys are one of the all-time great American groups to be sure.

This will be the greatest clash of armor and tactical aircraft the world has ever seen.

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]   
  78. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,957 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,620 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Nigeria, a place overrun with far too many ‘princes’ all-in need of U.S. senior citizens’ life savings: 165,419 cases of the virus, 2,065 confirmed deaths and 156,297 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  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.

  53. 2008 Friday: The price of crude oil hits an astounding $125.98 per barrel.  This is not good for the economies of the world.  Meanwhile, Hezbollah continues a powerplay in Lebanon in general and in Beirut in particular as they continue battling with government forces.

  56. 2011 Monday: Pakistani Prime Minister Yousef Raza Gillani launches an investigation to determine how Osama bin Laden lived undetected in Abbottabad.  (Editor’s note- we all know the truth of the matter; the Pakistani government gave him refuge).  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com Yuan reaches its highest level next to the U.S. dollar.  A decade from now, they will be surpassing us.

  64. 2019 Thursday: Off the coast of Tunisia, a boatload of migrants fleeing Libya capsizes, drowning at least 65 of the passengers, according to the United Nations.  The best way to avoid mishaps such as this is migrants: stay where you are.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Navy seizes a North Korean freighter in the East China Sea, loaded with coal for Indonesia which is against the sanctions imposed upon the former for its nuclear programs and weapons tests.  
  65. 2020 Saturday: Around the world, the “Chinese Curse,” aka COVID-19, aka the “Chinese Virus,” aka the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, continues claiming lives and destroying economies and yet, communist China protests anyone calling it the “Chinese Virus,” which it is so Beijing, STFU.  Confirmed cases around the world stand at 4,004,224, confirmed deaths stand at 277,860, and confirmed recoveries at 1,348,288.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,138,643, confirmed deaths are 79,373, and confirmed recoveries are 189,912 (which is an incomplete number as the liberal states tend to keep this statistic close to their vests so they can continue this unconstitutional lockdown order a la Michigan and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.   California acknowledges 64,532 confirmed cases and confirmed deaths at 2,630 BUT NO NUMBER of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Hawaii claims 629 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 548 confirmed recoveries.  Up in Washington state where one of our colleagues lives, works, and writes, the number of confirmed cases is 16,388 with confirmed deaths at 905.  Sadly, Gov.

Currently, Joe is shy 182,613 deaths.

  74. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Rep. Andy Biggs, 5th congressional district, says that new evidence shows the FBI has been lying to Congress.   We’ve known that for a long time.  Next, Senator Ben Sasse, RINO-NE, is going to introduce legislation that will permit the repurposing of unemployment benefits into hiring bonuses to get everyone to return to work instead of sitting at home and being good little socialists, drawing benefits.   Next, the NCAA is in discussions with the Department of Justice (WHY?) over the new plan of allowing student athletes to make money from their names, likenesses, and apparel.  They should have been able to have done this for a long time.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys are one of those American success stories, one that NO one at the time had any idea as how far it would go.  Dennis Wilson loved surfing and brought that love of riding the waves home with him.  Brother Brian- inspired by his brother started writing tunes.  A talented, musical family, Brian played bass, piano, and sang while older brother Dennis played drums and could sing.  Youngest brother Carl could play guitar, and their sad started seeing money signs although he was abusive as hell and put them down every opportunity he had.  Mike Love joined his cousins on vocals while neighbor David Marks joined on rhythm guitar and vocals.  Brian could hear all the harmonies in his head and soon the group began to form and chose the name, ‘the Beach Boys.’  Their first album, “Surfin’ Safari” came out on October 01, 1962, and it set the world on fire.  One of the oldest American rock groups, the Beach Boys touched off the California sun and surf craze.  The songs were pretty simple but hey, it was the early 1960s, the Vietnam War was not yet in motion, anything was possible and so it was.  Thus, we have some classic tunes on this album, “Surfin’ Safari,” “409,” and “Surfin’.”  Great music if there ever was which set the world ablaze and put the members of the band on one of the all-time crazy roller-coaster rides.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection.  You will be glad you did.

  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is dumping yet another Trump-era rule regarding the border, this one being that the collection of biometric data from illegal aliens along the border will now cease.  Thank you, Secretary Mayorkas.  (Note- and people wonder WHY everyone is buying firearms).  Speaking of Secretary Mayorkas, he lied to reporters earlier when he said that the numbers of illegals trying to cross into the country has gone way down and that the number of illegal alien minors has also decreased.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice has reaffirmed the war on ghost guns and will keep Joe Biden’s promise to enact sweeping gun reform (meaning gun control laws.  And they wonder as to WHY so many of us are buying guns, ammos, and accessories like flash and sound suppressants).  Next, census data shows that California’s population fell by more than 182,000 people in 2020 as people were fleeing the state in droves.  Speaking of California, now that it is becoming clear NO ONE wants Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom to remain as governor of the Golden State, the lightbulb has finally gone off over the dimwit’s head- he is now trying to do anything to save his job including making threats against all signers of the RECALL PETITION.  F**k you, Governor Newsom.
  75. 2021 Saturday H: Political News II– Karen Fann- president of the Arizona state senate- says that when the audit is over, she expects many irregularities will be discovered.  Next, new GOP voting laws look to hold election officials accountable as they should.  IF what happened to President Donald J. Trump in 2020 happened to a Democrat, they would be burning down the entire country.  We all know that.  Elsewhere, as Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Go, aka the Gropin’ Gov, continues trying to cling to his job like his compatriot in California is attempting, “Killer” Cuomo is shaking up his senior staff as there seems to be numerous leaks as to the criminal behavior exhibited by him and them in the killing of so many seniors.  Meanwhile, Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘U.S. system of justice is being distorted’ by the double standards the American people have been witnessing, i.e., the raid on Rudy Giuliani’s apartment and the home of Victoria Toensing.

  77. 2021 Saturday J: Miscellaneous News I– The largest pipeline of gasoline in the United States- the 1,500-mile Colonia Pipeline- was shut down by unknown hackers.  Sounds like environmentalists did this.   Next, in the glorious city of New York, a woman and her three-year-old child were shot.  SHOT.  Elsewhere, Ernest Angley, a ‘controversial televangelist has died at the ripe old age of 99.  Finally, the religion of peace strikes again near a girls school in Kabul, Afghanistan, sending at least 30 people off to meet with Allah sooner than they planned and injuring loads of others.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971 and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones). What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on October 22, 2021.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.

  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’

  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.
  82. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

111. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2022

28. 1954 Wednesday: The People’s Army is launching an all-out assault on the Foreign Legion held strongpoint of Huguette 1. The communists have labored to dig approach trenches right up to the wire as well as to pull in heavy weapons for close range support. According to some Legion survivors, the last that was seen of their comrades was that they were fighting back-to-back atop the command bunker, throwing back one human wave assault after another of howling communists until finally, everything fell into silence. Still, the fighting at Dien Bien Phu will continue.

  59. 2014 Monday:  The New York Knicks fire Coach Mike Woodson after a season in which the Knicks began as champions and ended with elimination.  Elsewhere Russian separatists n the eastern Ukraine claim that two of their number have been pulled from a river, covered in stab wounds.  This is a horrendous outrage and of course the Russians are angry.  Like the Nazis in 1939 prior to the invasion of Poland also needed a pretext for invasion and so they engineered one.  Vladimir Putin is a good student.  (Note- the Russians probably killed a couple of Chechens).
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, a true jihadist if one ever existed, receives a 20-year stint in an Egyptian hoosegow for hundreds of protesters he had killed when he was the nation’s president.   Elsewhere, following the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is going to launch a federal investigation into the incident.
  61. 2016 Thursday: Prince, one of the most inventive and influential musicians of modern times, was found dead at his home in suburban Minneapolis; he was 57 years old.   Elsewhere, in the War on Terror, the Nigerian army is doing the job that must be done.  In Kaduna state at the village of Zaria, Amnesty International claims that the Nigerian military murdered 350 Boko Haram militants and then bulldozed their corpses into a mass grave.  Good riddance.  Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth celebrates her 90th birthday.
  62. 2017 Friday: The Taliban carries out a successful terror attack on a government base in Mazar-al-Shariff in which they slay more than 100 government troops.  Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 91st birthday.  God bless you, Mum!

  64. 2019 Easter Sunday: “Climate activist” Greta Thunberg[vi] speaks at an “Extinction Rebellion” where like-minded, Kool-Aid-drinking (and modern-day Hitler Jugend-like brain-dead zombies) terrorize the city of London.  Waterloo Bridge had been closed for four days as legions of youthful nuts occupied it as they demonstrated their mass insanity over the impending DOOM of the world.  Yeah, right.  Elsewhere, ISIS carries out a string of bombings in Sri Lanka, attacking churches and hotels where Christians might be.  At least 359 people are killed outright with another 500 ore more seriously wounded.  The United States and Pope Francis condemn the attacks.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: COVID-19 Morning Update–  The confirmed world cases of the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis are 2,501,156 what with the confirmed number of global deaths sitting at 171,810 but 659,737 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we acknowledge a total confirmed cases at 800,932 with 43,006 confirmed deaths but 73,379 confirmed recoveries.  As for the Chinese statistics, IF you enjoy fairy tales, IF you enjoy fantasy fiction, the communist government claims 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries, pretty much the same as yesterday’s number and the day before that and so on and so forth.  Let this be a life lesson to everyone that communists, socialists, democratic-socialists, and every other left-wing ideology always lie to cover their tracks.  Do not believe anything the False China says.  Meanwhile, word continues trickling out that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is ‘recovering from a cardiac event or cardiac surgery which could be true just as he might be dead due to the ill effects of a coup.  We will remain vigilant and report the truth when we learn it.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: COVID-19 Evening Update– As of tonight, the world claims 2,563,384 confirmed cases of China’s lab-engineered virus, the Kung Flu.  The world stats show there are 177,415 confirmed deaths what with 681,477 confirmed recoveries.  IN the United States, there are 824,698 confirmed cases what with 45,297 confirmed deaths, and 75,050 confirmed recoveries.  As for the world’s ‘friends,’ the communist Chinese, they still claim 88,423 confirmed cases what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  As we say, “Communists always lie and so the Chinese continue doing so.”  Soon, they will be paying the price as almost every nation encircling the globe is suffering from this unnecessary disaster.

  68. 2021 Wednesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 250,546 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Speaking of ‘Vegetable Joe,’ he has some cockamamie plan with which to offer tax credits to people getting the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Speaking of the Bat Flu vaccines, the FDA has found multiple irregularities in the plant manufacturing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine what with peeling paint, rodent droppings, and other things in need of correction.  NO wonder people are getting flipping blood clots (not to mention that the J & J vaccine utilizes fetal tissue culled from aborted fetuses for both manufacturing and testing.  This ain’t good, folks).
  69. 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: 3,723,271 confirmed cases, 61,083 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,184,354 confirmed cases, 34,616 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,817 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 390,415 confirmed cases, 5,451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nebraska, the home of the Cornhuskers: they have 217,108 confirmed cases, 2,349 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]

  72. 2021 Wednesday 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 $3.976 per gallon, $2.814 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.390 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $2.757.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,197,874,203,119 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  
  73. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ongoing Border Catastrophe– Things are going to hell along the southern border that Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, is calling up the National Guard and deploying them to his state’s border with Mexico.  In fact, Senators Mark Kelly, D-AZ, and Kyrsten Sinema support the governor’s efforts to halt the invasion.   Meanwhile, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle want to know WHEN Joe Biden or “Kooky Kamala” Harris is going to visit the border and behold the BORDER CATASTROPHE that is occurring there 24/7.  This must stop.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Wednesday G: Crime And Punishment News / U.S. Department Of Justice News–  Senile old hag, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, continues blathering on about how ‘great it was for George Floyd to give up his life and to call out for his mama’ as he lay dying beneath the knee of convicted murderer and former Police Officer Derek Chauvin.  The leftists being what they are ALWAYS require martyrs so they can forge ahead with their sick agenda and poor Mr. Floyd was just another brick in the Democratic-Socialists’ wall.  Speaker Pelosi must lose her seat in 2022.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced that the feds are launching an investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department in a renewed drive to federalize as many police departments as possible.  This is what socialist-communist societies do, they bump up local law enforcement to federal level so they can then move them around- like the People’s Republic of China- so that law enforcement has NO ties to the communities they serve which leads to greater police brutality and mistreatment of the citizenry.  You can count on it.  This is precisely what the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act (or whatever BS name it goes by) is all about, federalizing ALL local and state law enforcement.  In other crime news, following the police shooting of a young black female attacking another with a butcher knife in Columbus, Ohio, last night, Democrats and their ‘tool’s like LeBron James are screeching for blood.  Someone, please, kick LeBron’s stupid ass.  Finally, a Virginia cop was fired- we repeat, FIRED- for donating $25 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund.  WTF?  Lt. William Kelly, an internal affairs officer in the Norfolk, Virginia, police department was terminated when his superiors learned of this callous doing in a FREE country.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday H: Crime And Punishment News Ii– After the Chauvin verdict yesterday, ‘peaceful protesters,’ aka Antifa, in Portland, Oregon, assaulted people on the street, set Starbucks stores ablaze, and attacked cops on the street.  Speaking of Officer Chauvin, he is being held in protective custody, i.e., in solitary confinement, to protect him from his fellow inmates.   Meanwhile, the four detestable skanks of the Squad, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and newbie Cori “The B***h” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, are driving up race hatred across the country while having the taxpayers spend tens of thousands of dollars to PROTECT THEM.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the case of ‘comfort women’ used by Imperial Japanese forces in the Pacific during World War II, South Korea- a country from which many of the sex slaves were taken- sides with Japan.   Speaking of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in says that ‘President Donald J. Trump failed to solve the North Korean problem.’  Uh, okay, but he gave it a better shot than any president since Ronald Reagan.   Next, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that the Chi-Coms WON’T reduce carbon emissions, nor will they slow their growth as the United States will willingly do.’  He is 100-percent correct.
  77. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Administration News I– Joe Biden is sending members of his Cabinet out to the various states to shill for his INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN, the one that costs $3.2 trillion, that very few want.   Speaking of the faux president, the Associate Press reports that Joe Biden plans to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 which means higher energy costs, less energy reliability, and a diminished middle class.   Next, Joe Biden plans to use his upcoming address to a joint session of Congress supposedly sometime in May to push for POLICE REFORM across the country.   Meanwhile, a stuttering and stammering Joe Biden says that he believes the bar to ‘convict cops is too high.’   Maybe you should zip your lips until AFTER justice has occurred there, Mr. Faux President.
  78. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Book publishers, Simon & Schuster announce that they reject a petition demanding they DON’T publish a book by Vice President Mike R. Pence.  They are going to move ahead with publication, damn the torpedoes.  Next, RINO King former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, N.J., says he could run for the White House in 2024.  It will be to YOUR embarrassment there, Big Boy.  Speaking of New Jersey, they are going to permit Gender “X” on the state’s driver’s licenses and identification cards.  Oh, goodie, kowtowing to the freaks yet again.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that failing to censure Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, yesterday has weakened both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Department of Justice.  As you know, she went to Minneapolis, Minnesota, over the weekend to stir up a lynch mob and to intimidate the jury in the trial of now-convicted murderer, Derek Chauvin.
  79. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– It appears that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, is becoming vulnerable amid ongoing attacks by President Donald J. Trump.  Former Democrat-turned-Republican and former state Representative Vernon Jones, GA 91st district,  is in a powerful position to knock Governor Kemp out in the primary election of next year.  Meanwhile, ever-drooling, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is floating the idea of a BIPARTISAN January 06, 2021, Commission to get to the bottom of the False Flag, Antifa-and-Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters that then became a mob and stormed Capitol Hill.  (Note- it does not require loads of intelligence to visualize that most of those people storming the Capitol, waving Confederate flags and what not weren’t crazed leftists bent on intimidating true protesters, lawmakers, and the American people into accepting what they know was stolen: the 2020 Presidential Election).  
  80. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III–  Next, the FBI releases a report on the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, the one that occurred on June 14, 2007, in Alexandria, Virginia, when a crazed BERNIE SANDERS VOTER attacked a baseball practice for House Republicans.  The FBI decided that the slain shooter, James Hodgkinson wanted to carry out a…wait for it…suicide by cop.  That’s right, that’s what the esteemed Federal Bureau of Investigation- in the hands of ‘highly capable’ Director Chris Wray pulled out of their hat.  What a deduction.  How sad is our world today?  Our government has become fully corrupted and it’s a shocking thing to behold for patriots.
  81. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3553 with a $40 million jackpot on the line: 03, 12, 17, 41, 42, and Mega 23.  Out of 114,936 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $40,636.   The winning ticket was sold at Fast Stop in Lake View Terrace, CA 91342.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a $90 million pot up for grabs: 21, 25, 32, 63, 67, and Powerball 06.  Out of 50,586 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,206.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 568,290 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 203,535 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 456 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  88. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.689 per gallon, $4.113 in Florida, $5.243 in Hawaii, and $4.684 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Massachusetts- $4.124.  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 23rd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Colombia: $2.398 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,399,844,953,328 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian President Vladimir Putin is declaring ‘victory over Mariupol’ even though the Ukrainian defenders fighting in the ruins of the steel factory continue killing Russians by the score.  They will not surrender and it’s clear to any observer that Mariupol could become Putin’s Stalingrad, sort of a Putingrad.  Going to be good watching them annihilate the Russians.  In other areas where Ukrainian civilians have been victimized and crushed, the Russians are raising red victory flags.  Sounds like the Soviet Union is struggling to return for Round 2.  The Russians are preparing ‘referendums in the occupied areas’ so the grateful Ukrainians can kowtow to their Soviet masters.
  90. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Although it would be a good show of support for the United States to reopen its embassy in Kyiv, the Biden regime is resisting calls for it to do this morale-boosting step.  WTF is up with slobbering Joe?   Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says his country requires $7 billion per month to sustain his nation and its fight against the Russians.  Today, we also learned that money Joe Biden is sending to Ukraine also is helping to pay its civil service.  Wow.  In other news, Russia has slapped travel bans on Vice President Kamala Harris, the REAL PRESIDENT Ron Klain, and on Meta-Facebook’s ‘Little Mark’ Zuckerberg.
  91. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The 8th busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in Washington, D.C., today.  Keep ‘em coming.  Next, 21 red states are joining forces to stop the Biden regime ending Title 42 on May 23.  Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border for the past 384 days and it’s been 298 days since she arrived to do the job.  Since the first day of the year, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens is $707,111,130.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the Biden-Harris regime took charge is $42,452,916,873.  The number of illegals who have entered the U.S. since January 01, 2022, is an appalling 1,129,483.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the U.S. is 46,561,140.  We believe the truer number is close to 85-125 million illegal aliens. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  92. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban meets with Pope Francis with the Russo-Ukrainian War as their backdrop.  Meanwhile, mystery continues surrounding WNBA star Britney Griner’s arrest and imprisonment in Russia.  In other horrifying news, Beijing has inked deals with the Solomon Islands and with Kiribati so its ships and security personnel can use them as ‘transit sites.’  (Note- the United States fought at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands and at Tarawa in present-day Kiribati during World War II and now the Chi-Coms have built forward bases threatening not only Australia and New Zealand but Hawaii and Guam as well as continues the isolation of Taiwan).
  93. 2022 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– U.S. Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, Dr. Mehmet Oz, says, ‘it’s time to for the U.S. to get back to reality on COVID-19.’  Next, the U.S. claims it’s extending COVID-19 vaccine mandates for illegal aliens at the southern border.  Uh, okay, sure you are.  Illegals can run around without following any COVID-19 mandates while the Biden regime is appealing the judge’s recent ruling ending mask mandates on public transit.

  99. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is launching a new program with which it claims it will beckon in Ukrainian refugees but not across the U.S.-Mexico border.  That is for the Russians, the Third World, and the Chi-Coms to push their agents across amidst the sea of illegal aliens.  Next, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain- uh, ‘President’ Joe Biden- announces another $800 million in military aid to Ukraine.  How much will the Biden Family skim off the top?  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime has banned Russian vessels from visiting American ports.
  100. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– The FAA is going to review the parachute stunt that occurred yesterday in the nation’s Capital that caused a mass evacuation from the U.S. Capitol Building.  Next, here is one that is a head-scratcher: the U.S. Supreme Court is backing Joe Biden’s decision to DENY benefits to Puerto Rico.  What benefits are we discussing?  Well, these federal benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens.  These benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens and Joe Biden- with the support of the John Roberts’ Supreme Court is denying these benefits to low-income, elderly, and blind Puerto Ricans.  Where the hell is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, on this topic?  Her Abuelita lives in the PR so she should be screeching like a flipping banshee, yet she’s silent.  (Note- the chief justice must truly fear the Dems packing the court as why would he back a crazy move such as this?)
  101. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News III– Thirteen of the victims of Larry Nassar are suing the Federal Bureau of Investigation for $130 million for having f**ked up the investigation into the perverted coach.  Next, the Biden regime has contracted the release of another 30 million barrels of oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve.  We suspect that like previous withdrawals under the Biden regime, this oil will flow overseas to our ‘allies’ and not to the American people.  Speaking of the oil rip-off, Rep. Rick W. Allen, R-GA 12th district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies are bringing pain to the American people.’
  102. 2022 Thursday S: Joe Biden Regime News IV– U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen weighed the cost of the Russo-Ukrainian War on Russia’s frozen assets.  Next, Vice President Kamala Harris has lost her 13th staffer- this time, her Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy.  What can you say?  The VP is a bitch who slept her way to the top.  This is fitting justice for one half of this fraudulent administration, YOU steal an election, Karma has a way of coming back and biting you on your ass and this administration is going down the crapper.  Next, left-wing, Obama economist Austan Goolsbee says that the pandemic shutdowns are the main cause of the sky-rocketing inflation eating away at average Americans’ bank accounts.
  103. 2022 Thursday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Famed radio talk show host, Infowars’ Alex Jones, is seeking immunity from the January 06, 2021, Select House Committee.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. is expected to meet with this sham committee.
  104. 2022 Thursday U: Political News I– Although this sounds somewhat hopeful, the Cook Political Report says that 27 Democrat-controlled House seats are in the toss-up column in November.   Next, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd congressional district, denies ever having advised President Donald J. Trump that ‘if they impeach you, you should resign.’  He would never have said something such as that, huh.  We are beginning to suspect Leader McCarthy is in the same class with “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT.
  105. 2022 Thursday V: Political News II– Never say that President Donald J. Trump’s endorsements don’t matter (although this one leaves us puzzled).  J.D. Vance- venture capitalist and author- has seen his lead in the race for retiring Senator Rob Portman’s seat in Ohio has leapt by 7 points to the good.  One of his Republican challengers- Mike Gibbons- says he still can’t forget that Vance voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Neither can we.
  106. 2022 Thursday W: Political News III–  Talk about turning something once good into a piece of festering cow crap, other than Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the JFK Profiles in Courage Award is going to Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-large district, as well as to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, DS, the Copper State’s House Speaker Rusty Bowers, RINO, and to Peach State Election Department employee Wandrea “Shaye” Moss.
  107. 2022 Thursday X: Big Tech News– In a ‘put up or shut up move,’ tech multi-billionaire Elon Musk has $46.5 billion in cash with which to buy Twitter.  The price he is offering is $54.20.  Next, folks, it’s so successful that following its launch on March 29, 2022, it’s official: CNN+ is shutting down on April 30, 2022.  Adios, Chris Wallace.  POS.  In other news, the Florida House of Representatives voted to strip Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges.  This did not come easy, however, as Democrats and their rent-a-mobs of LGBTQIA+ crazed psychos tried to carry out an ‘insurrection’ a la January 6, 2021, of their own although very few news media sites are labeling it as such- but we will.
  108. 2022 Thursday Y: Sports News I– Here’s an interesting one: the NFL says that the black coaches’ discrimination lawsuits lack merit.  Wow.  We thought the NFL was all WOKE now and here they are throwing the black coaches’ suits under the bus.  Shame on them.
  109. 2022 Thursday Z: Miscellaneous News I– The Pro-Death Movement in Kentucky gains a temporary win what with a stay on the state’s new anti-abortion law.  For some reason, the Trump campaign has been ordered to pay $1.3 million in damages and attorneys’ fees to former adviser Omarosa Manigault.  Finally, some glorious film hit the news cycle today.  Some dumbass airlines passenger was hassling Mike Tyson during a flight and wouldn’t take ‘buzz off’ for an answer.  The former heavyweight champion turned around and punched the living shit out of this dimwit who then posted photos of his bloody face on TikTok.  Will they ever learn?
