  71. 2020 Thursday: An amazing scene occurred today in the White House Press Room as reporters- including John Roberts of Fox News Channel- attempted to get White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany to voice that “Donald Trump renounces white supremacism.” She provided numerous examples going back years in which Mr. Trump, both as private citizen and as president of the United States, blasted the notion.  Reporters never will ask “Pro-China Joe” Biden to renounce Antifa and Black Lives Matter nor do they ask him to denounce his son, Hunter, actively colluding with communist China.  At first, we were confused but a source we have within the Biden campaign has alluded to the fact that internal polling shows black support for President Donald J. Trump is at an astounding 22-25 percent.  This would explain the amped-up rudeness we are seeing on display.  Adding to this story is the fact that Rush Limbaugh, during the second hour of his show today, has pointed out that the Proud Boys are a mixed group, both racially and ethnically, and that their international head- Enrique Tarrio- is a person of color.  He’s a black Cuban.   Yet, we know that “Pro-China Joe” Biden interacted with segregationists Senator J. William Fulbright, D-AR, Senator Herman Talmadge, D-GA, Senator Strom Thurmond, D-SC, Senator Robert C. Byrd, D-W. VA, Governor George C. Wallace, D-AL, and numerous other white segregationists.  His own pick for VP called him a ‘racist’ so what the heck?  
  72. 2020 Thursday A: The Trump campaign slams the Presidential Debate Commission over it ‘moving the goalposts’ on behalf of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Biden supports the moderator being able to cut the mic of Trump- is this a sign of confidence in the Biden-Harris campaign?  We think now.  Meanwhile, ransomware attacks- most likely from communist China and Russia- hammer Tyler Technology, a company that helps report election results in real time.  Tyler says the attacks ‘cannot change votes’ but that they ‘can sow confusion.’  They are working to correct this situation.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, what was first reported yesterday- that the authorities had arrested the POS shooter of the two sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car is a fact.  Convicted felon, Deonte Murray, 36-years-old was already in custody for other offenses so they did not have to search far for this scumbag.  Hoist him high and drop him!  Elsewhere, the CDC extends its ‘NO SAIL’ order for all cruise ships until the end of October due to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Finally, President Trump signs a stopgap bill to keep the government funded.
  73. 2020 Thursday B: LEFT-WING, LIBERAL, FAKE NEWS MEDIA attack line on Trump today is “WE DEMAND YOU DENOUNCE WHITE SUPREMACY” in these words.  Everyone in the administration must say this or else.  Friends, it is clear the Democrats are losing black and Latino voters, Telemundo providing a BIG INSIGHT into this shift following Tuesday night’s debate in Cleveland, Ohio.  A whopping 66-percent of viewers said Trump won compared to 33-percent who felt he lost.  This is NOT good for Democrats.  Let’s make them a modern-day incarnation of the Whigs.  Meanwhile, the Cook Political Report says that the Trump campaign is winning the voter registration battle forcing the Biden campaign to begin going door to door in the search for voters.  Speaking of the Biden campaign, WHY is the VP nominee hiding?   Is it because she knows the truth that the Harris-Biden 2020 ticket is going to be one of the all-time greatest landslide losers?   Still the latest poll from Rasmussen says Biden leads Trump 51% to 43%.
  74. 2020 Thursday C: U.S. Border and Customs officers bust 125 pounds of cocaine, worth at least one million in the U.S.- at a border crossing from Mexico into the United States.   The cartels are going to whack somebody somewhere for this mix up…

  77. 2020 Thursday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– We had a FAIRLY BIG UPSWING in the markets today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,816.90, UP 35.20 points (+0.13%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,326.51, UP 159.00 points (+1.42%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,380.80, UP 17.80 points (+0.53%).  Price of GOLD: $1,907.80 per troy oz., -8.50 (-0.44%).  Here is the price of SILVER: $23.84 per troy oz., -0.409 (-1.69%).  Price of PLATINUM: $902.80 per troy oz., -3.20 (-0.35%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,328.20 per troy oz., -2.30 (-0.10%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.87 per #, +0.002 (+0.07%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $38.36, -0.36 (-0.93%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.79 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.85 euros.  Conversely, one-dollar U.S. = 28.88 Taiwanese dollars.  Unemployment now stands at or around 8.4 percent (August).  In April, it was a whopping 14.7-percent.  Right now, approximately 13.5 million Americans are out of work, thanks to Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu.  Jobless claims rose to nearly 850,000 first-time unemployed workers seeking benefits.  Other than on Beijing, the blame rests squarely on the shoulders of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who will not come to a COVID-19 relief deal with the Trump White House.  Vote her out on November 3 and send her packing.   
  78. 2020 Thursday G: Late this evening, President Donald J. Trump announces that he and First Lady Melania are now COVID-19 positive.  This follows on the news that Hope Hicks, an integral part of the White House team announced earlier in the day that she tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  This means Fox News commentator Chris Wallace now must rush to his doctor just as “Pro-China Joe” Biden will.  Sounds like the 2020 campaign is sputtering to a halt.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.
  79. 2020 Thursday H:  Here is the result of Thursday Night Football’s game: (1) Thursday Night Football: Denver Broncos, 37 (1-3) @ New York Jets, 28 (0-4).

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 402,690 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 1,388 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

  86. 2021 Friday F: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Both Nationalist aka the Republic of China- aka FREE China- and the Chi-Coms celebrate their national day today.  The Chi-Coms decided to have some fun and sent more than two dozen warplanes into Taiwanese airspace.  It would appear that Chairman Xi is seeking to increase pressure on the freedom-loving people of FREE CHINA.  Folks, we should have nuked the Chi-Coms back in the early 1950s.  Light ‘em up, tune ‘em up, and make them docile.
  87. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh has tested positive for the ‘VID.  He is asymptomatic.   Next, multiple failed candidate Andrew Yang said today that ‘were it not for COVID-19, President Donald J. Trump would still be in office.’  Meanwhile, aging Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, decries the surge in COVID-19 cases in the Last Frontier and blasts those who compare ‘mask mandates with Nazism.’  The atrocious old gal is trying to save her jobs.  Next, a law firm is battling COVID-19 mandates in New York State but U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Sonia “A Wise Latina” Sotomayor smacked the lawsuit against them down.  The mandates requiring students, workers, and state employees to undergo jabs stands.  Next, Joe Biden is urging ALL U.S. airlines to impose Chi-Vi vaccine mandates on ALL employees.  (See ‘follow the money’).

  93. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden showed up on Capitol Hill today with a disheveled House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, trying to make some magic happen on all the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills the pair are trying to shove through to competition.  It was clear that Joe was unclear as to where he was while Nancy’s eyes were looking in two different directions at the same time and when reporters shouted questions at him as he fumbled along the hallway, he reacted angrily as though Corn Pop was nearby threatening to kick his senile butt.  Joe finally babbled about the passage of the bill that it matters not if it takes ‘six minutes, six hours, or six days’ to pass the unconstitutional POS bill which to most observers means it’s not going to pass.  Joe’s ‘agenda’ is at risk, especially with Senator Manchin opposed to it and Senator Kyrsten Sinema already on the plane heading back to Arizona.
  94. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Polling suggests the Democrats are going to lose the Senate in 2022.  Folks, if the border is not closed, the Dems have nothing to worry about.  Meanwhile, Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, the dingbat Rep. better known by ‘AOC,’ is mocking Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, who is hesitant about voting for the disastrous bills the socialist Democrats SO WANT.  Senator Manchin said today that ‘if he cannot explain the bill back home to his constituents, he won’t vote for it.’  Good for you.  (Note to AOC- STFU, you ditz).  
  95. 2021 Friday O: Political News II– Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that ‘Hunter Biden’s art sales pose a national security risk.’  Amen.  Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says it’s ‘extremely troubling that Joe Biden lies or has forgotten’ practically everything the senile cretin says and does, especially when it comes to the disaster in Afghanistan and the loss of U.S. military personnel.
  96. 2021 Friday P: U.S. Supreme Court News I– In a speech to the University of Notre Dame law school yesterday, U.S. Supreme Court Samuel A. Alito Jr. defended the court’s ‘shadow docket’ as critics continue labeling the nation’s high court as one controlled by a ‘hidden cabal.’  IF the court is controlled by a shadowy cabal, then it’s a leftist one that constantly threatens to pack the court with loads of leftwing justices.
  97. 2021 Friday Q: Business News– New car sales have fallen by 14-percent in the U.S.  This can, of course, be blamed on the shortage of computer chips.  Friends, globalism does not work; we should have been manufacturing our own chips and never have relied on foreign suppliers.
  98. 2021 Friday R: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1699 what with a $34 million jackpot on the line: 20, 25, 36, 62, 63, and Mega 06.  Stay tuned for info on the winners… Out of 62382 winning tickets, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $509 apiece.
  99. 2022 Saturday: Observation of the Day– The Democrats subscribe to the boneheaded notion that IF one tells a lie long enough and strident enough, those on the receiving end of told lie will come to accept it as the Gospel truth. Thus, we have all this howling, wailing, and gnashing of teeth that numerous Republicans running for office are ‘election deniers, evil election deniers.’  As far as I can recall, Democrats have denied more elections than any other political party in the history of the United States.  As far as I can recall, Democrats have attempted to overturn and corrupt more elections in this country than any other American political party.  The louder they scream this bogus crap- that Joe Biden somehow pulled off the electoral upset of the century the more we know that the modern-day equivalent of the “Know-Nothings” STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election.  Look- everyone knows that the senile, child-gropin’ loser in the White House is illegitimate because KARMA is delivering evidence of that every single day since he forced his way into the White House.  Karma has a way of righting cosmic wrongs and Joe Biden is the biggest ‘cosmic wrong’ our nation has ever seen.  In approximately five weeks, we are going to throw out as many Democrat bums as we possibly can and then some.  In 2024- if ‘Big Brother Joe’ remains in the White House, we are going to send him packing, too, along with that elder-abusing wife of his.  Question: can we just bring back President Trump now and give him his second term as well as a third term?  We must get him back into the White House ASAP and the Democrats must be targeted, ejected, and then persecuted to the ends of the Earth.  God bless you and God bless our country.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick returned to form yet again with their second eponymous album, “Cheap Trick,” popularly referred to as “Cheap Trick ’97.’  The album came out on April 29, 1997, and featured the band sounding like they did twenty years earlier: rockin’ loud and rockin’ hard.  The album features Robin Zander (vocals, guitars, and piano), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar, backing vocals, acoustic guitars, electric saw, and piano), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals, acoustic bass, tamboura, and E-bow), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  The album has 11 smoking tracks (13 if you buy the extended edition), which makes it well worth one’s while to rush out to the nearest record shop and picking it up in the condition, the price, and the format that makes sense to you- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy!

  90. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News I– Left-wing protesters now target Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, over his refusal to support the regime’s $3.5 trillion spending bill.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate votes against the spending bill which causes liberals such as U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to prophesy ‘DOOM is coming via a government shutdown.’  She is demanding the Senate act by October 8, 2021, to stop a catastrophic federal government shutdown.  Oh, woe, people!  Senator Cynthia Lummis, R-WY, lit up Secretary Yellen over the new order demanding banks report ALL TRANSACTIONS over $600 to the Internal Revenue Service.  WTF!  Speaking of the spending bill, Dems are trying to insert into it a tax on single-use plastics just as they are amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.    
  91. 2021 Tuesday Q:  Political News II– Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues swearing his spending bill is going to cost ZERO dollars.  He also is applying pressure to Democrat leaders of House and Senate to pass his bogus bills that will jack up taxes to an oppressive level not seen since Jimmy Carter.  Anyone missing President Donald J. Trump yet?  We sure the heck are missing the 45th president.  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, had a town hall meeting at the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California, hosted by Newsmax’ Rob Schmitt.  Great town hall.

Mike Turner, R-OH 10th congressional district, told Newsmax that General Milley was ‘incredibly disingenuous in his testimony.’  When Senator Tom Cotton asked the agitated Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman as to whether he was going to resign or continue taking a paycheck, General Milley angrily said, “NO.  I’m not gonna resign.”  Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, said that after hearing the testimony of the three men that ‘Joe Biden must resign.’  Finally, Rep.

  93. 2021 Tuesday S: Federal and State Court News– A shocking new report suggests that at least 131 federal judges sat on cases directly tied to their very own personal fiscal interests.  Imagine if these were Trump-appointed judges but we know they are not, they are liberal placements.  Meanwhile, a court in Texas ordered the immediate release of 220 illegal aliens into the hinterlands of the Lone Star State.  Why?  Elsewhere, Rep.

  98. 2022 Wednesday:  As you know, each of the contributors to this blog write on a six-month cycle more or less so when we pick up where we left half-a-year earlier, we are ALWAYS surprised at what’s going on around the country and across the world.  Everyone knows that Joe Biden is dumber than a box full of taro root, but the senility is even worse than anticipated.  Falling down the stairs, falling off his bike, walking around shaking the hands of ghosts, not knowing where to enter or exit a stage, it’s all very unsettling and downright frightening at times.  Then, we have his trusty Number 2, a person NO one seems to like, who is even dumber than he is.  She goes around in circles babbling about communities being in the community of communities, blah, blah, blah, this is what you get when a subpar chick sleeps her way up the ladder of politicians’ totem poles.  Granted, she was able to disguise her lack of smarts when she was a sitting U.S. senator whereas now, whenever we have the misfortune of seeing her on TV is extremely nauseating.  The Number 3- the Botox-drenched hag who runs the U.S. House of Representatives can hardly offer a coherent sentence at a time, sloshing her choppers around her mouth while she sucks on a lemon.  This is extremely unsettling.  However, if anyone becomes too critical about the collapse of the U.S. government, the Joestapo might come around, roust one out of bed, and then possibly disappear you in the middle of the night.  What has befallen our country, you might ask?  Believe in karma?  This is what happens when one STEALS AN ELECTION SO BLATANTLY THE ENTIRE WORLD KNOWS IT!  Oh, Lord, I had better prepare for the Joestapo to show up at six o’clock in the morning.  LOL.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

Back in early summer 1914, NO one anywhere around the world believed that an event in the far-away Balkans had the potential to spark a global catastrophe and yet by summer’s end, three-quarters of the globe was locked in the deadly embrace of war.

  63. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.

[x]    Let us look at one other Iowa: $3.005.  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- Ireland: $6.877 per U.S. Gallon.[xi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,773,041,296,077 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xii]  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 Switzerland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Belgium with $253 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  73. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Rep. Dan Meuser, R-PA 9th congressional district, says the ‘GOP is going to get answers on this supposed ‘humanitarian aid’ to the Taliban.’  The Biden regime claims the ‘humanitarian aid of hundreds of millions of dollars was in the pipeline under President Donald J. Trump.’  Bullshit.  Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, says that a ‘reckoning is coming from the House GOP on Afghanistan.’

  75. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– We learned today that a pro-Chi-Com group has infiltrated Wikipedia and is inserting- wait for it- pro-Chi-Com propaganda across the ‘questionable site.’ Meanwhile, Canadian Prime Minister (and son of one of the Rolling Stones) Justin Trudeau is on the defensive as his ‘snap election’ seems to be going against HIM and HIS PARTY.  The Canadian people are tired of this limp-wristed cross-dressing pansy, and we hope they don’t use the Dominion Voting Systems machines in the upcoming election.  Finally, France continues to be upset over the snub by the new clique of Australia, United Kingdom, and the U.S. and has recalled its ambassadors from Australia, and the U.S.
  76. 2021 Friday I: Health and Medical Alerts– The U.S. is going to allot $2.1 billion to infection control, meaning it’s going to give money to hospitals to help control infections.  Question: WHY weren’t you doing this already?  Sounds like another portion of the money-go-round.  Meanwhile, in another devastating blow to the Biden regime, by a vote of 16-2, the Food and Drug Administration rejects the call for a THIRD booster shot.  It recommends the need only for those most at risk due to age and/or health issues.
  77. 2021 Friday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.89 (2) AstraZeneca $55.56 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.75 (4) BioNTech $359.18 (5) Moderna $430.05.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: (1) Pfizer $45.59 (2) AstraZeneca $56.26 (3) Johnson & Johnson $166.97 (4) BioNTech $349.19 (5) Moderna $449.38.  Some fluctuations here in ups and downs regarding the prices.

  81. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, that tomorrow’s ‘Justice for J6 Rally’ is going to be a setup.  We believe that tomorrow’s affair is going to be a “Mumbles” Pelosi setup what with loads of FBI informants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators, and that anyone who does not want to end up in the D.C. gulag with the other 400-plus poor souls would be wise to avoid the nation’s capital.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts one of the losers who voted to impeach him- retiring Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, RINO-OH 16th congressional district, by saying that the Rep.’s vote to impeach him was ‘very stupid.’  It was.  Look at what is happening to the losers who voted to impeach the 45th president.  One by one, they are losing support, becoming impotent, and will soon all be gone.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is weighing executive privilege in releasing documents related to President Donald J. Trump and the events of January 06, 2021.  Speaking of slobbering Joe, his approval ratings have imploded down to 44-percent- his lowest yet- which means in reality, the loser’s polls are nearer 34-30-percent than they are 44-percent.  Newsmax host Rob Finnerty says, ‘bye-bye Bide, the future we all knew was coming and didn’t want to admit.’ Meanwhile, in another slap to the feeble dictator, two large polluter nations were absent from Joe Biden’s follow-up climate summit.  Finally, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that ‘Joe Biden’s mandate regarding businesses forcing employees to get the Chi-Com vaccinations is divisive and that it undermines doctors.’
  83. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has interceded in the Purdue Pharma company settlement wanting to go after them some more.  In other Biden regime-related news, the impotent U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken deleted a tweet that said, “The U.S. stands with Hong Kong.”  Chi-Coms didn’t like that, eh?  Next- in something that sounds mighty unconstitutional to most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, the Biden regime is cutting off the supply of monoclonal antibodies to Red States.
  84. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Nineteen days after blowing up an Afghan ally of the United States and nine members of his family for being the ‘one’ who plotted and carried out the August 27, 2021, suicide bombing that killed 13 American servicemen-and-women, the Pentagon was forced to announce that it had erred taking ‘Taliban intel’ and blowing up this poor man and his family sight unseen.  Oooh, the mighty United States, whacking and stacking God knows who just as it did during the heady days of Obama-Biden.  Still, the Biden regime has better things to do- the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the way it holds ‘tranny prisoners’ in federal prisons.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Served papers yesterday while on a live radio program conducting an interview, famed political strategist Roger Stone said ‘there’s NO evidence supporting the lawsuit against him’ regarding U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the geriatric, nonagenarian leader of the House, and her claims of being behind the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  We believe you, Roger.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has okayed ‘100 National Guard troops to be on scene for the Saturday rally.’
  86. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– The Republican National Committee has released a new ad showing the countless times that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has lied, flipflopped, or laid bull crap on the American people. Ronna McDaniel- chair of the RNC- says that ‘Joe Biden’s COVID-19 mandates are the results of his far too many failures.’  Next, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says that ‘Joe Biden has NO business forcing COVID-19 mandates on the American people.’  Amen. 
  87. 2021 Friday T: Political News II– Axios reported today- to the dismay of the Biden regime- that under no circumstances will Senator Joe Manchin, D- W. VA, will vote ‘YES’ on the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Good.  Elsewhere, Arkansas senatorial candidate and U.S. Army veteran Jake Bequette says that the massive crowds attending college football games shows that the American people are ready to return to their lives.  The government had better pay attention to this. 
  88. 2021 Friday U: Political News III– Thirteen hardcore leftist Dems are pushing for expanded unemployment benefits in the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills.  Meanwhile, Health and Human Services tells Texas abortion providers, “We got your backs.”  Elsewhere, Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, D-MD 5th congressional district, says that the House will hold a vote so as to avoid imminent government default and subsequent shutdown.  Elsewhere, as mobs of illegal alien invaders swarm under the Del Rio, Texas, bridge, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that the “National Guard should be deployed to maintain order under and along that bridge as a swarm of 10,000 or more Haitian ‘asylum seekers’ mills about there.
  89. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– As outrage continues to grow regarding Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and his phone calls with the Chi-Coms, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien say the ‘NSA had NO intel suggesting anything that disingenuous fiction author Bob Woodward says in his new book, “Peril,” existed.  Mr. Woodward says that ‘General Milley called the Chi-Coms to warn them that he would warn them should Trump decide to nuke them in his final days.’  Gen. Milley must face courts marshal for being a traitor.
  90. 2021 Friday W: Business News– Ford Motor Company claims the demand for its EV Ford 150 electric trucks is so great that they are going to invest $250 million to increase production and add another 450 jobs in three plants in Michigan to meet this incredible demand.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Tesla is going to work with regulators on data security, something of which, they seem to have problems.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After many years, ‘jinx’ multi-millionaire Robert Durst finally was found guilty of murdering his best friend.  Meanwhile, the judge in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse- accused of murdering two Antifa POS- said that the prosecution cannot bring up ties between Mr. Rittenhouse and the patriotic organization, the Proud Boys.
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Big Tech News– Get this: the arbiter of what’s ‘true’ on the Internet, Google, and Apple, have removed imprisoned critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny’s ‘tactical voting app’ designed to mobilize the Russian people to fight back against the new communist dictator, Mr. Putin.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com intelligence gathering app- TikTok- has a new problem, the so-called ‘devious licks challenge’ that encourages American school-aged kids to break the law via vandalism.  Isn’t it about time we began nuking these sons of bitches?
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, the final Sears (and Roebuck) store- north of Chicago, Illinois- is set to close on November 14, 2021.  What a tragedy of mismanagement, not knowing its customers any longer, and being unable to morph with the times.  Sad, extremely sad, it did not have to happen.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: New York State News– Freshman Governor Kathy Hochul, D-NY, has given the people of her state a big gift: 191 freed inmates.  Meanwhile, three people went off on a New York City eatery host for requesting proof of vaccination before allowing them to enter.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Texas State News– Another Texas death row inmate has had his execution delayed over religious freedom claims.  Meanwhile, Governor Greg Abbott signed a $1.8 billion infrastructure bill to continue erecting the Trump border wall.  The governor said, ‘Joe Biden’s failures to do his job guarding the border has forced Texas to do the federal government’s job at protecting the border and its citizens.’  Meanwhile, state Representative Matt Krause, Republican, is going to primary sitting Attorney General Ken Paxton in 2022.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– Campus Reform students sign a petition to abolish the U.S. Constitution because it’s racist, doesn’t recognize gays, trannys, and people of color.  In other ‘moron news,’ U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-12th congressional district, a person whom capitalism has benefitted immensely, jumped on the socialist train while overseas and says that ‘capitalism has not served the U.S. well.’
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Today, Los Angeles, California, was announced to be the ‘Bedbug capital of the United States.’  Now that’s a distinction that every town and city in the entire United States covets.  Wow. No wonder we no longer like going to the city of (Fallen) Angels.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1695 what with a $400 million jackpot on the line: 17, 32, 40, 59, 61, and Mega 18.  Out of 130,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,613 apiece.
  99. 2021 Saturday: Observation of the Day– This past Tuesday, Greta Van Susteren had John “Perpetual War” Bolton on her show on Newsmax and the two discussed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to tactical nukes on the battlefield in Ukraine.   Look, if Adolf Hitler had nukes in 1944 or 1945, he would have used them against Great Britain and Russia for sure and the against U.S. if he could have delivered them.  That little cave-dwelling, slope-headed cretin Vladimir Putin sure as heck does have nukes and if he is facing Armageddon, then so will his enemies.  He already has severed energy supplies to the stupid-assed Europeans who came to depend upon him the same way American leaders delivered our country into the pockets of Xi Jinping.  We could be on the cusp of a global catastrophe much like the world was in early summer 1914 because back then, NO one believed that a far-off conflict in Eastern Europe could envelop almost all of the world in its horrifying embrace.  Yet, by the end of the year, three-quarters of the world was involved in the worst bloodletting the globe had ever seen. Serbia is not that far away from Ukraine so it’s easy to see how just the right spark- like a strike on one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants- could be the spark of the End Times.  Let us pray that someone dispatches Vladimir Putin and soon so we can avoid just such an outcome.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

How come Democrats never remember that the GOP fought for civil rights and that the Democrats supported racism, separate-but-equal, the KKK, cross-burning, Jim Crow, cops with fire hoses and rabid dogs, lynchings, and everything else they attempt to shift onto the Republicans now? Let us not forget that the Southern Democrats were the slaveowners and that the Northern Democrats did their best to provide them cover prior to and during the Civil War?

  48. 1991 Monday: Boxer Mike Tyson was indicted in Indianapolis on a charge of raping Desiree Washington, a beauty pageant contestant on this date in what many believe was a frame job to ensnare the embattled boxer. A jury convicted him, and he ended up serving three years of a six-year prison stretch.
  49. 1993 Thursday: Israel and PLO leaders agreed to recognize one another. While Israel has attempted to make peace, the lying Palestinians always do their best to avoid making peace.
  50. 1994 Friday: The U.S. agreed to accept about 20,000 Cuban immigrants a year. This was in return for Cuba’s promise to halt the flight of refugees. So instead of sending us immigrants, they send us criminals—and Obama opened the door to Cuba during his second term—son of a bitch!
  51. 1995 Saturday: Amtrak’s Broadway Limited service made its final run between New York and Chicago.
  52. 1997 Tuesday: Sinn Fein, the IRA’s political ally, formally renounced violence and took part in talks on Northern Ireland’s future. Meanwhile, elsewhere in the world, actor Burgess Meredith died in Malibu at age 89.

  58. 2013 Monday: Near the foot of Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, archaeologists discover 1,400-year-old treasure, called “the Opel Treasure.” Elsewhere, four days of vehicular gridlock began near the George Washington Bridge when two of three approach lanes from Fort Lee, New Jersey, were blocked off; Democrats later blamed the traffic jam on loyalists to New Jersey Governor Chris “Big Fats” Christie over the refusal of Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich to endorse Christie for re-election. Christie denied any prior knowledge of the lane closures.  Hmmm, could “Big Fats” big telling the truth or is he a lying scumbag?  We will never know.
  59. 2014 Tuesday: In Taiwan, the government arrests six scumbags for selling contaminated lard products to foodservice operations, manufacturers, and restaurant suppliers, the lard contained discarded cooking oil as well as waste material from leather manufacturers.

  63. 2018 Sunday: After six more women air their #MeToo allegations against CBS News boss Les Moonves in the New Yorker, he throws in the towel and calls it quits. Meanwhile, things are going crazy across Russia as police begin arresting anti-pension reform protests, rounding up one-thousand, or more, in a single day. Hey!  Vladimir Putin and his flunkies need to self-enrich so something has to give…
  64. 2019 Monday: After South Africa undergoes a wave of xenophobic violence, Nigeria says it will act quickly to repatriate at least 600 of their citizens. Since Nelson Mandela died, everything has gone to hell in the once-stable country. Meanwhile, singer John Legend[v] and plump wife Chrissy Tiegen light up President Donald J. Trump who launched into them on Twitter for criticizing his prison reform efforts.  He called them “foulmouthed’ and ‘boring,’ two criticisms the two ‘beautiful people’ didn’t like.  The truth always hurts.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Today, we learned that across the nation, Democrats dominate the requests for mail-in voting ballots. Folks, this is a time-honored variation of a psychological trick the Democrats ALWAYS use which is to depress their opponents into believing it’s a ‘done deal,’ that whomever the Republican president is, he is going to lose and to LOSE BIG. Don’t fall for it, let them do what they are doing.  Speaking of Democrats, we learned that the Harris-Biden 2020 Campaign raked in $355 million for the month of August: however, no reporting of the Trump-Pence tallies.  Elsewhere, Chicago reports that downtown Chi-Town renters are abandoning the city and who can blame them?  Lawlessness, mob violence, shootings, beatings, rapes, all are on the rise.  Thanks to this, occupancy rates have fallen by 5.2-percent over the past few weeks which means that Chicago- like New York City and other big BLUE STATE METROPOLISES- is going to die due to poor leadership and criminal mismanagement.   Next, Fox News reports that Obama-Biden, over their eight years in office lost 494,000 manufacturing jobs while over the past three years, Donald Trump gained them back.  Yet, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is on the campaign trails when he can wake up claiming HE is the one who will bring jobs back to America.   Speaking of President Trump, the Nobel Peace Prize group announced they were putting in Trump’s name for their 2021 Award thanks to trying to make peace with the North Koreans and for brokering a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, something, laughingly, that Vice President Biden claims ‘me and Barack set the foundation for;’ please, you two goobers did no such thing.  
  66. 2020 Wednesday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 27,605,570 confirmed cases, UP by 213,357 cases, 898,269 confirmed deaths, UP by 556 deaths, and 18,565,072 confirmed recoveries, UP by 187,663 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,434,718 confirmed cases, UP by 23,326 new cases, 193,119 confirmed deaths, UP by 668 new deaths, and 3,481,537 confirmed recoveries, UP by 30,719 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).
  67. 2020 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 747,603 confirmed cases, 13,899 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,025 confirmed cases, 88 confirmed deaths, and 3,063 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 81,133 confirmed cases, 2,046 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Wyoming: 4,103 confirmed number of cases, 42 confirmed number of deaths, and 3,451 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Mark Gordon for providing us the proper figures.
  68. 2020 Wednesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,940.47, UP 439.58 points (+1.60%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,141.56, UP 293.87 points (+2.71%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,398.96, UP 67.12 points (+2.01%).  The price of GOLD is $1,955.10 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $27.21 per troy ounce, +0.127 (+0.47%).  The price of PLATINUM is $924.10 per troy oz, -0.80 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.11%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,305.80 per troy oz, -37.40 (-1.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $37.83 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.58%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.83 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.37.
  69. 2020 Wednesday D: The Iranian garbage announce they are building a new, more secure site from which to enrich uranium at a much more rapid pace so they can build a bomb or two, the first one in 3.5-months. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard and their mullah bosses claim the Mossad destroyed their first site via fire and explosions earlier in the year. Folks, time to NUKE the living s**t out of these scumbags.  
  70. 2020 Wednesday E: Meanwhile, the Oscars announce complicated new diversity rules so we can all encircle the bonfire and sing ‘happy, happy, joy, you.’ Here they are: A QUOTA SYSTEM, how about that? To ensure more equitable representations, one of four lead actors must come from underrepresented groups such as black, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, or whatever else they can dream up along with 30-percent of all secondary actors must come from underrepresented groups including gays, the disabled, and the aforementioned groups as well as chicks.  In addition to that, the storylines/focus/themes must focus on underrepresented groups, and finally, at least two senior executives must come from underrepresented groups.  Wow, we already don’t watch movies now so from this point forward, we won’t be watching any flipping movies but if a producer wants their film to qualify for an Oscar- any Oscar- they will have to meet each of these requirements or qualify for NOTHING.   
  71. 2020 Wednesday F: The woman accusing President Donald J. Trump of sexual assault, aka ‘rape,’ back in the 1990s- E. Jean Carroll- says the U.S. Department of Justice’s decision to defend the president was “UNPRECEDENTED.” It is not unprecedented as many times the U.S. Department of Justice will insert itself into a legal case on behalf of an individual federal employee and since President Trump IS a federal employee, it is perfectly legal and common. Carroll claims that since the president recently disputed her accusations by saying (1) it never happened and (2) he doesn’t know her; it has harmed her credibility and her reputation.  Wah-wah-wah.  The Westfall Act gives federal employees absolute immunity from legal actions such as these and since Ms. Carroll is going to court in New York State, one can smell the malevolent odor of New York State Attorney General Letitia “Tish” James (as well as decrepit old battleax Hillary Rodham Clinton) somewhere in the mix.  We suspect that “Pro-China Joe” Biden will attempt to copy Trump’s tactics at a debate between he and Mrs. Clinton back in 2016 when the NY real estate developer and media mogul trotted out all of Bill Clinton’s rape accusers and sat them in the front row to throw the former first lady, senator, and secretary of state off her game- it worked but Ms. Carroll won’t sway Trump.  You can bet on it.  With the U.S. defending Trump, the case moves from New York State courts to the federal courts where she will end up the one in trouble.  Count on that, too.
  72. 2020 Wednesday G: Excerpts from Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, “Rage,” have clips of President Trump on tape downplaying COVID-19’s danger. President Trump has done more than any other country around the globe to defeat this Chi-Com bat flu, yellow fever virus running amok and when questioned on his statements, the commander-in-chief says he did ‘not want to cause a panic.’ Sounds about right.  What matters here is that communist China LIED to the world and must pay a price for their crimes against humanity.  Elsewhere, on the campaign trail, Joe’s anti-senility meds are working fairly well today, and he uses the admissions of Trump on tape to blast him and to tell the world all the amazing things he will do as president.  God help us!
  73. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 223,995,675 confirmed cases, +737,757, 4,619,835 confirmed deaths, +12,049 and 200,583,433 confirmed recoveries, +782,535. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 41,561,156 confirmed cases, UP 245,369 from yesterday’s reporting, 674,547 confirmed deaths, UP 3,938, [vi] and 31,744,959 confirmed recoveries, UP 134,170. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vii]   
  74. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 356,119 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 47,959 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  75. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,463,803 confirmed cases, 66,934 confirmed deaths, and 2,340,618 confirmed recoveries. Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,436,788 confirmed cases, 48,273 confirmed deaths, and 2,375,875 confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 69,573 confirmed cases, 633 confirmed deaths, and 68,940 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 596,618 confirmed cases, 6,935 confirmed deaths, and 255,708 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., S.

  78. 2021 Thursday E: S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $3.009 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.883 in Washington state. [xiv] Let us look at one other location- Alabama: $2.840. 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- Spain: $6.312 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,741,965,625,065 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  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 All others with $215 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  79. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘it’s no surprise’ that four former Gitmo detainees are now running the show in Afghanistan. Next, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th congressional district, says that ‘Congress has neglected any talk of the failed Afghan evacuation.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mark Green, R-TN 7th congressional district, says recently imported Afghan refugees dumped in Virginia are able to have free-run of the state.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Taliban and other enemies of the U.S. do not fear us.’  Immigration guru and former Trump confidante Stephen Miller told Newsmax today that the ‘goal of the Biden regime is to settle as many refugees around the country as it possibly can.’
  80. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 169 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show and Day No. 76 since her sole visit to the border to do her job. Anyhow, here are the numbers as presented by One America News for the utter disaster befalling the nation. First, here are the numbers for the cost as of this day for caring for all this riffraff: $517,821,024.  Next, here is the cost for just this year of caring for the castoff products of the Third World: $275,586,383,872.  Next, here are the numbers for illegal aliens who have swarmed into the United States this year: 2,824,539.  Finally, here are the numbers of illegals estimated to be living in the country: 36,824,540.  However, we know the number is double that, if not higher.  This must stop. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden has been totally absent during the southern border crisis.’
  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Saudi Arabian Embassy in Washington, D.C. says that it ‘welcomes’ the upcoming disclosure of its role in the September 11, 2001, terror attacks and notes that it had NO role in them whatsoever. We shall see. Next, Yair Netanyahu- Benjamin Netanyahu’s son- says Israel is ‘spiraling out of control without his dad in office.’  Meanwhile, in other truly crazy news, New South Wales, Australia, has people on lockdown and now is putting a cap on the amount of alcohol one citizen can have delivered to their home or apartment per day: six beers or one bottle of wine.  What the hell is going on in that totally insane country?  This is frigging loony tunes, folks.  Finally, Chi-Com warplanes are penetrating Taiwanese airspace every day.  The war is coming…
  82. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– New Jersey police and firefighters are protesting in the streets against COVID-19 vaccine mandates being imposed upon them. Fight back, people, fight back. Meanwhile, liberal hypocrisy is on full display today: where once the American Civil Liberties Union stood against government-opposed mandates- especially medical ones- the ACLU now stands firmly behind all those seeking to impose harsh COVID-19 restrictions and vaccine mandates on the American people.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says there are too many new cases of the ‘VID to stop calling it a pandemic.’  “Phony Tony,” we hate to say this but it’s now endemic, something with which, we will just have to live- thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, Rep. Andy Harris, R-MD 1st congressional district, says there’s ‘no reason WHY someone who has had COVID-19 should have to get the vaccines.’
  83. 2021 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.03 (2) AstraZeneca $56.29 (3) Johnson & Johnson $168.07 (4) BioNTech $351.38 (5) Moderna $455.92. As you can see, the money-go-round is alive and well. Moderna is developing a 1-dose booster shot for the Chi-Vi and the flu, combined together in a double-whammy of God knows what to the human body.  Experts in the medical industry say that it takes two years at least to put a vaccine through clinical trials and we have not done that yet.  Anyone takes this crap, God help them.  Next, Joe Biden was bragging on the U.S. donating 140 million doses overseas with another 500 million slated to go to poor, highly deserving countries around the world.  Once again, here is the money-go-round in action.  Politicians and Deep State apparatchiks are highly invested in these companies and thus the federal government BUYS the vaccines, ships them elsewhere, and the aforementioned politicians and apparatchiks receive dividends as well as campaign funding and other freebies from these companies.  This is EVIL.
  84. 2021 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.66 (2) General Dynamics: $203.81 (3) Boeing: $213.94 (4) Lockheed Martin: $348.93 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $356.78.
  85. 2021 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.12 (2) DuPont: $70.30 (3) Honeywell: $222.93 (4) 3M: $185.75 (5) Teijen: $1659.00. WHY do you think that losers such as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and the CDC director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky continue pushing the wearing of masks? Like the vaccines, it’s the classic money-go-round as outlined above.  (Note- soon, we will begin doing the fake meat company stocks as the war on meat is on the way as of today…)
  86. 2021 Thursday M: President Donald J. Trump News– Gold Star mother Shana Chappell invited President Donald J. Trump to her U.S. Marine son Kareen Nikoui who was killed in the bomb blast at the Hamid Karzai International Airport- along with 12 other U.S. servicemembers- last month.
  87. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden released his oppressive ‘plan’ to get ‘COVID-19 under control.’ He is going to increase the pressure to get 80 million Americans who remain unconvinced or who simply won’t get the vaccine to undergo vaccination whether they want to or not. He is going to demand mask mandates and will counter any governor’s plan to either overlook demanding vaccinated employees or who blows off mask mandates (please see our new section on PPE manufacturers’ stock prices to understand the money-go-round on all this bull crap).  He wants to get schools open, will require ALL companies with 100 or more employees to force ALL employees to undergo vaccination even as he provides the U.S. Postal Service a carve out- NO vaccinations for them!  Say, what the f**k?  (The Republican National Committee is suing the Biden regime over its new COVID-19 ‘mandates’).
  88. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden was talking crap the other day about the U.S. Stock Market and the effect he was having on it. Well, stocks are tanking as are his approval numbers. Joe Biden now is a few points shy of what President Jimmy Carter’s were towards the end of his first and only term in office.  Joe Biden has collapsed below 40-percent approval which is not good for a usurper who has only been in office eight months.
  89. 2021 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– Amid growing resistance from the GOP, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen urges Congress to raise the debt ceiling before the government implodes. Next, the Biden regime is planning on hitting ALL Americans with massive tax increases such as charging drivers a tax of $0.08 per mile (actual figure will vary depending on types of vehicles). As for death taxes, unsold assets will be subject to tax as high as 43.3-percent for the wealthiest households on top of a 40-percent estate tax for millionaires.  Capital gains taxes will increase from 21-percent to 28-percent with a top marginal rate of 39.6-percent.  This is ONLY the beginning.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime had to pull the nomination of one of the worst POS yet to come out of this fraudulent regime, David Chipman nominated to head the Bureau of Alcohol and Tobacco.  What difference does it make?  The regime will send some other nut up to Capitol Hill to try to get confirmed.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Joe Biden lays out a plan to lower drug costs for associated with Medicare. (Note- President Donald J. Trump already did this, you loser). Next, the Biden regime is slamming the meat industry for ‘pandemic pricing.’  Joe, there were no workers, no livestock feed deliveries, WTF is wrong with you?  Why the f**k don’t you just shut the hell up?  What a loser.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice is suing Texas over its new fetal heartbeat abortion ban law. 
  91. 2021 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The FBI released new info on the ‘Capitol Hill pipe bomber.’ We think they have another Cesar Sayoc in the works. IF you don’t know who Mr. Sayoc is, look him up- that was bullshit, too.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian destroying the country, is putting Fort Pelosi back up ahead of the upcoming protest on Capitol Hill grounds in support of the political prisoners still in the slammer in D.C.  (We suspect that this protest is going to be infiltrated by Antifa and BLM agents who will then make this event even more explosive than the one on January 06, 2021.  See how it all works?  It’s not good).
  92. 2021 Thursday S: Political News I– Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, must stand up and do something with (losers) Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. Amen, boot those two scumbags out of the Republican conference. NOW.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he is asking SCOTUS to declare proxy voting in the House unconstitutional.
  93. 2021 Thursday T: Political News II– Rep. Clay Higgins, R-LA 3rd congressional district, said today that the U.S. is ‘greatly weakened’ since Joe Biden cheated his way into the White House. Next, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci should be charged with lying before Congress which he did.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, conservative icon Todd Starnes said that Joe Biden should ‘show some respect for both the U.S. military and the U.S. Constitution.’  Good luck with that, Mr. Starnes.
  94. 2021 Thursday U: Business News– Amazon.com announces it’s going to ‘invest $1.2 billion over the next four years to put their frontline employees through college or to get their high school diplomas. (Note- Eric Bolling at Newsmax said, ‘how about paying some taxes, Amazon?’ Everyone wants the answer to that pressing question).
  95. 2021 Thursday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Washington, D.C. Roman Catholic Archbishop Wilton Gregory says that ‘Joe Biden is NOT demonstrating Catholic faith.’ We concur. It is fake Catholics such as these who are going to be visiting Hell.  They have forgotten the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church.
  96. 2021 Thursday W: Social Media News– Many were shocked when a racist bitch wearing a gorilla mask of all-things threw an egg at gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder, R-CA, and then tried to fight with his security. Typical liberal BS but the Twitter verse is up in arms over this incident. About flipping time, folks.
  97. 2021 Thursday X: California State News– Democrats are beginning to sob tears over the impending doom for Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom. We are praying that POS is BLOWN OUT. (Hey, Gavin- where’s those relief checks you were going to send us?).  In fact, slobbering Joe Biden is coming to California to campaign for “Nazi” Newsom this upcoming Monday. 
  98. 2021 Thursday Y: Sports News I– The opening game of the 2021-2022 NFL Season begins with the Dallas Cowboys playing the world champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In a nail-biter of a game, the Bucs pulled it out in the final couple of seconds to win by a final score of 31-29. What a game.  The Cowboys played their hearts out but if you give Tom Brady a couple of seconds, that son-of-a-gun will pull it out.
  99. 2021 Thursday Z: For us, this is the midpoint of the week. Let us see what Beijing Biden is up to today… NFL 2021-22 Season opens tonight with the Dallas Cowboys visiting Superbowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bucs, obviously…
  100. 2022 Friday: Friends, I know everyone is celebrating the ‘lowered gasoline prices’ for which, frigging Joe Biden gets all the ‘credit’ but it’s a phony lowering of prices.  As everyone should know, he has tapped our Strategic Oil Preserve which President Donald J. Trump worked so diligently to fill with much of it flowing across the Pacific Ocean so we can pay the interest on our debt.  The real stunner will be the day after Election Day when oil prices will skyrocket back up because the Dems will have two years to ride out the tidal wave of anger until the 2024 Election Cycle.  I think prices will rise higher than what they were before the artificial lowering because the prices will reflect the true cost of gasoline as things now stand.  Democrats do not want people using gasoline-powered cars and so once unrestrained by what voters think, the prices will rise and will continue to rise thus worsening our economic circumstances.  This November, we must vote out every frigging Democrat no matter if they seem ‘reasonable’ because none of them are.  We must neuter the Biden regime and force them to go even more draconian in their retributions against us so everyone can see that Joe f**king Biden is little more than a senile tool of Barack Hussein Obama, a fraudulent president if ever one existed.  Let me know what you think.  Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[i] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Byrds and then Buffalo Springfield, had we been more perceptive at the time as to how we would combined integrated musical groups and performers, we should have done the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, as well as each artist’s solo catalog as well as that of the various members of the Byrds.  We look forward to correcting that mistake at some point in the next 3-5 years so please remain alert for that day.  You will be glad you did.

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

[iv] Good riddance to this Chi-Com POS.  He was a murderous thug and deserves to burn in Hell.

[v] We don’t ever plan on doing the music of this little wimp. Maybe in 80-100 years?

232. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2022

It is clear that Senate Minority ‘Leader’ “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell really does not want to win the Senate back if these are to be his new senators because he knows that IF they are, he most likely won’t be re-elected ‘majority leader.’ He is, after all, one of the worst leaders the GOP has ever had much like John Boehner and Paul Ryan were losers in the House.

POLITICS FROM A MOUNTAIN CHEF’S PERSPECTIVE

232. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2022:

Hawaii Statehood Day

President Benjamin Harrison; U.S. Acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates; U.S. Secretary of State Edmund J. Randolph; U.S. Senator Steve Daines; Chicago featuring James Pankow, the Flying Burrito Brothers featuring “Sneaky” Pete Kleinow, Hawkwind featuring Dave Brock, Led Zeppelin featuring Robert Plant, the Ohio Players featuring Ralph “Peewee” Middlebrooks, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by the Rolling Stones, the Seeds featuring Sky Saxon, and Thin Lizzy featuring Phil Lynott:

  1. 2 Tuesday: The star of Bethlehem appears the conjunction of Venus-Jupiter.
  2. 984 Friday: Today is an interesting day in the history of the Roman Catholic Church.  First, the 136th Roman Catholic Pope John XIV ends and two successors- Antipope Boniface VII and Pope John XV begins.  Antipope Boniface VII elected in opposition to both Johns would rule until July 20, 985, while John XV would rule until 01, 996.
  3. 1191 Tuesday: Crusader King Richard I orders the deaths of 3,000 prisoners at Acre in the Levant.  The Crusaders could not afford to spare the lives of the infidels as their goal was to march on Jerusalem as soon as possible.  Three-thousand Mohammedans in their rear areas could have compromised their supply lines.
  4. 1619 Tuesday: The Dutch bring the first black slaves to the British colony of Jamestown, Virginia.

Trump’s bid to block the subpoena launched by Trump-hater District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. of New York County.  This loser has been unfairly pursuing Donald Trump since he assumed office.  Speaking of New York, New York City is investigating Mayor Bill Di Blasio’s wife for having a lavish 14-person staff and for spending millions of the taxpayers’ dollars to do God knows what.  We will see where this goes, too.
  60. 2020 Thursday A: In Grand Prairie, Texas, the plastic plant that ignited yesterday continues burning today.  Firefighters believe it will require several more days for it to subside.  Halfway around the world, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un delegates more power to his lovely sister, Kim Yo-Jong which makes her his de facto number two.  Many people question as to when she will become the NUMBER ONE- if she is not already and the guy many believe to be Kim turns out to be a doppelganger.  We are keeping an eye on this one, too.

[xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Oklahoma: $2.889.  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- Slovenia: $5.560 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,664,979,325,196 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.  
  72. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As the Biden pullout of Afghanistan continues down its disastrous path, new reports say that the Taliban is going door to door searching for Christians.  They will undergo beheading.   Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, says that Afghanistan is becoming the new ‘jihadist Club Med.’ Next, new reports suggest that senile Joe Biden ignored calls from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for ’36 hours’ so the allies could get their people out of the country in an orderly manner rather than the mess the world now sees.  Elsewhere, the United Arab Emirates agrees to host 5,000 Afghan refugees until the United States can bring them into the country.  Next, Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, says ‘blame politics, not U.S. intel for the snafu in Afghanistan.’  Add to that the fact the House GOP is demanding to know ‘how many American weapons were left in Afghanistan for the Taliban to capture.’
  73. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must.  Today is Day No. 149 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 56th day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $582,096,799.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $251,541,056,765.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,675,879.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,667,877.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  U.S. District Court Judge Miranda Du in Reno, Nevada, ruled that a 1929 immigration law that makes crossing back into the U.S. after being deported a felony as somehow ‘unconstitutional.’  WTF!  
  74. 2021 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey cites the fentanyl crisis in his lawsuit against the Biden regime demanding a return to the ‘Remain in Mexico Policy’ enacted by President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of courts, a U.S. court denies the Biden regime’s request to forestall the return of the “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Good.  Watch the Biden regime ignore it.
  75. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the illegal alien invasion continues driving UP COVID-19 cases, Florida and Texas are opening antibody treatment centers to help sick residents in their states.  Elsewhere- in Louisiana- Attorney General Jeff Landry, GOP, says the New Orleans Saints Chi-Vi mandates are completely ‘unacceptable.’ In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu-related news, ex-National Security Adviser H.R.

  76. 2021 Friday J: Health and Medical Alerts– The Food and Drug Administration- the FDA- plans to give the Pfizer vaccine full approval this upcoming Monday.  Elsewhere, Customs and Border Enforcement seizes 3,000 phony COVID-19 vaccine passports in Alaska, all of them from communist China.  Here’s a good one: following Barack Hussein Obama’s birthday fest last week, 74 people on Martha’s Vineyard now have COVID-19- talk about a super-spreader event.
  77. 2021 Friday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– Here are today’s stock prices: (1) Pfizer $48.70 (2) AstraZeneca $59.39 (3) Johnson & Johnson $179.50 (4) BioNTech $348.68 (5) Moderna $382.98.  The reason we present this information is so that the readers can understand WHY the Democrats and their RINO supplicants continue pushing everyone to get the vaccinations and then the boosters and to continue wearing Chi-Com-manufactured masks, possibly forever.  The answer is because politicians invest in these surefire companies because vaccine manufacturers are ineligible to be sued no matter how devastating or onerous the reactions or long-term effects are.  What a money-making scheme.  Dems pick the contracts which get loads of federal tax dollars which them come back to the Dems via campaign donations.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Friday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– Here are today’s stock prices: (1) Raytheon: $84.10 (2) General Dynamics: $197.41 (3) Boeing: $212.72 (4) Lockheed Martin: $357.24 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $363.00.  What we said above applies to national defense stocks, too.  The military-industrial complex in action.

  80. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– Saturday night in Alabama, President Donald J. Trump will be holding a massive America First rally.  Tens of thousands expected to attend.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, President Trump accuses regime leader Joe Biden of ‘unforgivable dereliction of duty.’
  81. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden was close to an hour late today to give a ‘briefing’ on the disaster in Afghanistan.  Next, a new report suggests that Joe Biden is praying for ‘limited fallout from the Afghan debacle.’  Another report suggests that mentally incompetent Joe Biden will be headed off to Delaware either tonight or tomorrow morning.  The Antitrump requires his “Manchurian Candidate”-style tune-up so he can appear somewhat coherent.  At his incoherent briefing today, regime leader Joe Biden said the “U.S. will maintain laser focus on terrorists.”  Sure, Joe, whatever you say.  Terrorists are pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border as we speak.  Speaking of Joe, he says there ‘is greater danger from ISIS than from the Taliban.’  Joe also promises to bring home every American in Afghanistan who wants to come home.  He just does not know who all is there seeking exit out of the country.
  82. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price continues taking heat over his lack of preparedness and lack of transparency at State Department briefings.  The dimwit can hardly answer what he had for breakfast much less speak coherently about the regime’s disaster in Afghanistan.  Like every other face of the regime, the loser is nothing more than an empty suit.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice is seeking to overturn the conviction of Taliban traitor Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl so they can clear him of all charges.  The DOJ is also seeking to get rid of the ‘public charge’ rule enacted by the Trump administration that prohibited illegal aliens from gaining entry into the U.S. if the country would have to support them.  Good.  Just what we need, Joe- more deadbeats. 
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new poll from the Trafalgar Group and the Convention of States Action says that a large majority of the American people are appalled by Joe Biden’s handling of the Afghan withdrawal.  Speaking of the disaster, even Democrats are calling for hearings on Joe Biden’s messy withdrawal from the forlorn country.  Another poll released yesterday by the Morning Consult Poll says that a plurality of Americans blames Joe Biden for the disaster unfolding across the Central Asian nation and not President Donald J. Trump.  Another poll falling atop these others says that ‘less than 40-percent of the American people believe slobbering Joe Biden is running the country. 
  84. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says she is preparing to launch articles of impeachment against Joe Biden.  (Note- better include them for “Kooky Kamala” Harris, too).  Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, agrees with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the ‘mess’ in Afganistan was easily ‘preventable.’ Rep. Adam Smith, DS-WA 9th congressional district, says Joe Biden’s ‘chaos remarks don’t add up.’  (Note- look for the 25th Amendment coming soon.  Poor Joe).  Elsewhere, old video from 2014 has bubbled up once again in which, Senator John McCain, RINO-AZ, says that Anthony Blinken is a ‘danger to the United States.’
  85. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘defending President Donald J. Trump cost him his friendship with far-left Larry David.’  It’s his loss, Dr. Dershowitz.  In other news, freshman Senator Mark Kelly, DS-AZ, is facing scrutiny for failing to disclose investments in a Chi-Com technology company ahead of last year’s elections.  Uh-oh.  In other political news, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is coming to the Golden State to campaign for a fellow loser, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom ahead of the recall election on September 14, 2021.  We Californians are looking forward to that.
  86. 2021 Friday T: Political News IV– Now that AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is with the angels (or…), the AFL-CIO Has elected its most diverse leadership in the history of the organization.  Liz Schuler becomes the first female president while two black gentlemen take the numbers two and three spots: Tefere Gebre becomes executive vice president and Fred Redmond becomes secretary-treasurer.  Let us hope they are NOT mob-connected.   In other news, Tucker Carlson reported that Infowars host Owen Shroyer is facing time in the D.C. slammer all because he stood on the steps of the U.S. Capitol but did not go in on January 06, 2021.  Tucker reports that the real reason he is facing trouble is because he said nasty things about Rep. Jerrold “Doughnut-Gobbling” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, sometime last year.  IF that is all it takes, we’re all going to the gulags.
  87. 2021 Friday U: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear a concealed carry gun Second Amendment case next month; one the Biden regime hopes will allow them to strip Americans of the rights to carry legally owned firearms concealed with a permit.  We hope the court will rule favorably for Americans’ Constitutional rights.
  88. 2021 Friday V: Miscellaneous News I– Yesterday, a refugee boat off the Canary Islands capsized with 37 refugees missing in the roiling waters. 
  89. 2021 Friday W: Business News– General Motors is recalling 73,000 Bolt EVs for problems at a cost of $1 billion.
  90. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Yesterday, a NYPD officer leapt onto the subway tracks to rescue a man who had fallen atop them.  Elsewhere, police in Miami-Dade County in Florida close a cold case going back quite a few years.  Police arrested the murderer of University of Miami football star Bryan Pata, Rashaun Jones.  Jones shot Pata to death in the parking lot of his apartment building and from there, the case went cold.   Next, four police officers suffered injuries in a shooting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, apprehending a mope.  Meanwhile, much to the shock of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the FBI says there is ‘scant evidence of coordination in the FALSE FLAG operation that occurred on Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021.’  Oi vie, poor Madam Mumbles!  In other news, as violent crime continues to skyrocket in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Mayor Jim Kenney rejected ALL calls to call in the National Guard to combat the violent hoodlums running amok in the streets.
  91. 2021 Friday Y: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– Capitol Hill Police Officer Lt. Michael Leroy Byrd[xx] is breathing easier this evening as he has been exonerated from all possible charges for the shooting death of U.S. Air Force veteran and patriot Ashli Babbitt.  (Note- everyone knows “Mumbles” Pelosi had him cleared).  Meanwhile, the new FALSE FLAG operation, the so-called bomber outside the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., yesterday, Floyd Ray Roseberry, has been charged with a variety of crimes.
  92. 2021 Friday Z: Big Tech News– Yesterday, the Federal Trade Commission filed a new monopoly lawsuit against Facebook.  Speaking of Facebook, they have now unveiled their new ‘virtual workplace’ app complete with avatars.  What a load of crap.   Meanwhile, the Anti-Defamation League is urging Twitter to ban the Taliban leaders from its site.  President Trump is still banned from the platform, but all the Anti-Semites and jihadists can say whatever the hell they want.  This is frigging crazy.
  93. 2021 Friday AA: Natural Disasters News– As fires continue raging across northern California, 35,000 people have received evacuation orders to flee from the horrendous Dixie Fire.
  94. 2021 Friday BB: New York State News– A frigging musical based on the life and times of short-time Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, is slated for Off-Broadway production.  Speaking of “Killer” Cuomo, moving vans have been seen at the governor’s mansion packing up the soon-to-be-ex-governor’s possessions.
  95. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– After the big lug Arnold Schwarzenegger insulted millions of Americans by saying “Screw your freedoms” when it comes to the debate on mask-waring, Australian actor Calum Von Moger who portrayed Arnold in a film about the guy has severed all ties with the former failed California governor over his casual dismissal of concerned Americans.  Good for you.
  96. 2021 Friday DD: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The new host of the game show, “Jeopardy!” Mike Richards is stepping down saying he does not want ‘past sexist tweets’ to create problems for the popular show.
  97. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1687 what with a $256 million jackpot on the line: 41, 43, 51, 57, 70, and Mega 01.  Out of 88,189 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $24,149 apiece.
  98. 2022 Saturday: Friends, many interested observers of the 2022 Mid-Terms are beginning to get frustrated with Senate Republicans.  I mean, why aren’t they out there fighting to help Ron Johnson retain his seat?  Why have they left J.D. Vance, Blake Masters, and Dr. Oz out to pasture?  I mean, I would have voted for Jim Lamon in Arizona because Masters seems to be an odd choice just as someone else might have been better than Dr. Oz.  Still, they are who they are and the money must begin flowing into their coffers now.  It is clear that Senate Minority ‘Leader’ “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell really does not want to win the Senate back if these are to be his new senators because he knows that IF they are, he most likely won’t be re-elected ‘majority leader.’  He is, after all, one of the worst leaders the GOP has ever had much like John Boehner and Paul Ryan were losers in the House.  We need to elect Republicans willing to fight on behalf of the American people, not for the Chi-Coms, the illegal aliens, and the corporations.  How about fighting for us, Mitch?  Let’s fight to neuter Joe Biden ASAP.  We still have 81 days so let’s put them to effective use.  Just dreaming, I guess.  Like I said yesterday, we must consign ourselves to the new global power structure- it’s better to be with them than against them.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Today’s rendition is the “Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Album,” an album that came out on March 23, 2016.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[ii] Perhaps one day we will promote the music of the Seeds, the Electric Prunes, and the Amboy Dukes.  We should have done these bands around the same time we did the Strawberry Alarm Clock.

[iii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

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

[v] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

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

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

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

[ix] 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)

[xx] We believe Officer Byrd is a man who has ‘misplaced’ her service arm on at least two occasions.  We suspect- and this is speculation- that Nancy Pelosi OWNS him because of this and that he was told on January 6, 2021, to SHOOT someone and Ms. Babbitt was the one who took the bullet.  In our eyes, IF he is indeed the officer who shot an unarmed woman who did not threaten him, he will forever be a murderer. 

231. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 2022

It might be time to begin playing ball and soon because this November, well, things may not change for the good. It’s clear the Senate Republicans are not interested in regaining power. Go figure. “Cocaine Mitch” didn’t earn that nickname for nothing you know. We hope by next year we will be able to reconfigure our blog so that it meets the requirements of the contemporary ruling class.

  68. 2020 Wednesday B: Economic news for today is great: Target reports profits are up by an astounding 80-percent while Apple becomes the first U.S. company to hit a market cap of $2 trillion.  It took Apple 38 years to hit $1 trillion and then just 2 years to attain the astoundingly high number of $2 trillion.  And people thought Tim Cook, Apple CEO, lacked what it took to continue the work of Steve Jobs. 
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: Following U.S. tire manufacturer Goodyear Tires banning its employees from wearing MAGA hats, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet urging people not to buy the company’s tires and other products.  Goodyear backtracks really quick and tries to clarify what it said.  It looks like employees can wear MAGA hats if they so choose.    Speaking of the Trump administration, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows echoes statements made by Dr. Tony Fauci and other medical professionals that ‘if it’s okay to protest in the streets, it’s okay to vote in person.’  We wholeheartedly agree with this view.   Finally, U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr reports more than 1,000 arrests in Operation Legend in which, the federal government partners with local law enforcement officers to take down violent scumbags.  Meanwhile, the dragnet is on for Marquise Love, a BLM supporter who stoved in the head of a passing motorist whose only crime is that he tried to come to the aid of a tranny in Portland, Oregon, whom thugs were beating and robbing on Sunday night in the 80th straight night of violent protests and riots.  Find this POS and beat his ass.

Kamala Harris, VP nominee, D-CA.  It looks to be ‘another exciting night.’  Speaking of Democrats, former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty in federal court today for tampering with evidence.  He is the first member of the communist Chinese-Democratic Party coup against Donald J. Trump.  Prison for you and loss of the right to practice law.  Stay tuned for more…
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has suspended or canceled three bilateral agreements with Hong Kong since the Chi-Coms on the mainland have reneged on the guarantees they made with the citizens of the former British Crown Colony.   Some of the agreements deal with tax exemptions from international shipping and extradition treaties, making the Beijing bullies angry yet again.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their criminality, here are today’s stats for the novel coronavirus they purposely sent around the planet:

[xiii]   
  78. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 970,606 confirmed cases, 6,752 confirmed deaths, and 902,220 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Sint Maarten, 184th country on the list: 3,313 cases of the virus, 17 confirmed deaths and 2,924 confirmed recoveries.

[xix]    Let us look at one other location- Ohio: $2.995.  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- Andorra: $5.489 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,660,954,261,668 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  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 Cayman Islands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman assured reporters that all seeking to make it into Hamid Karzai International Airport will have ‘safe passage.’  Elsewhere, protests continue around Afghanistan as the human fecal matter of the Taliban continue consolidating power.  In Jalalabad, the Taliban had to shoot into crowds of angry protesters.  What a disaster.  In other parts of the collapse, French and British troops are crisscrossing Kabul to bring their citizens to the airport for evacuation while the U.S. continues to claim, ‘we can’t go outside the airport to help our people.’  Meanwhile, a former female Afghan pilot who managed to get out of the imploding disaster says that the ‘repression of women will begin very soon.’  Speaking of Afghan women, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, asked a very piercing question today: ‘where is “Kooky Kamala” Harris on ‘women’s rights in Afghanistan?”  Answer: nowhere to be found.  Next, Joe Biden said something incredibly stupid when he claimed that the ‘Taliban is different today now that Osama Bin Laden is dead.’  Huh?  Finally, Rep. Jason Crow, D-CO 6th congressional district, ripped into absent Joe Biden over the absurdity of the ‘evacuation’ in Afghanistan.
  82. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must.  Today is Day No. 148 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 55th day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $566,730,229.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $251,525,690,195.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,660,454.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,656,452.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  83. 2021 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– U.S. Border Patrol Agents have sought to volunteer to serve in Afghanistan.  Next, a judge slapped down the White House’s narrowing of the categories the U.S. Border Patrol can detain and deport which will give ICE more leeway in crisscrossing the country to scoop up illegal aliens and begin getting them the hell out of our country.  NOW.
  84. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– When new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett arrives in Washington, D.C., to meet with the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear next week, the topic of discussion will be the U.S. returning to the failed ‘nuclear talks with the Iranian criminal regime.’  We hope the Israelis are going to nuke the mullahs before the camel thieves in Tehran go nuclear.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms slap a 40-percent capacity on U.S. airliners flying into communist China, the U.S. Department of Transportation slaps a similar passenger cut on all Chi-Com airliners flying into the United States.  (Note- a new Chi-Com ‘rap song’ (you know this has to be good) contains lyrics that say the Xi Jinping Bat Flu virus came from a ‘U.S. military lab.’  What a loser).  Next, we learned today that former President Ashraf Ghani removed $169 million from Afghanistan when he jumped ship earlier in the week.
  85. 2021 Thursday J: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Chi-Coms and the Russians are rubbing their hands in glee now that the Taliban control all the mineral mines in the country.  Captives of the Taliban will be down inside the mines doing the bidding of the Chi-Coms and Russkies.  Poor bastards.  Speaking of the Russians, due to their internecine contacts throughout Afghanistan, Moscow knew of the looming collapse whereas U.S. intel apparently had no clue whatsoever as to what was coming.  Wow.  Speaking of the Afghan collapse, another U.S. poll says that 70-percent of the American people believe that Joe Biden F****d up the Afghan withdrawal.
  86. 2021 Thursday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Three U.S. Senators- Angus King, I-ME, Roger Wicker, R-MS, and John Hickenlooper, DS-CO, have tested positive for the ‘VID.  All three of these politicians are 100-percent fully vaccinated and yet, they have come down with the Chi-Vi.  Famed journalist Alex Berenson told Tucker Carlson that the vaccines spike antibodies in the recipients which makes the receivers almost ‘invulnerable’ towards the virus but ONLY for a short while.  Then, immunity falls, and the patient becomes vulnerable again.  It appears we will have to get ‘boosters’ every other month which is frigging crazy.  NO way we are getting the vaccines to begin with, no way.
  87. 2021 Thursday L: Health And Medical Alerts– Ex-head of Purdue Pharma Richard Sackler denies the company played a role in the opioid crisis.
  88. 2021 Thursday M: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Several universities around the country are fining unvaccinated students to try to force them in line.  In other news, that slobbering dimwit Joe Biden is demanding that ALL Americans rush out and get COVID-19 booster shots even before the Food and Drug Administration has given them approval.  Joe, STFU.  Oh, Joe and Dr. Jill are going to get their booster shots very, very soon.  In other news, California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder vows that IF elected, he will immediately ban all mask and Chi-Vi vaccine mandates issued by Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  Speaking of fascists, the TSA is extending its mask mandates for all passengers on airliners until January 2022.  Next, Orange County, Florida, school boards are fighting the ban on mask mandates imposed by “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis.  Meanwhile, Michigan lawmakers are battling extremely unpopular Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer’s attempts at imposing a Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio-style system of vaccine passports to go from one business to another.
  89. 2021 Thursday N: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $48.76 (2) AstraZeneca $59.19 (3) Johnson & Johnson $178.50 (4) BioNTech $331.81 (5) Moderna $375.53.  As we say, IF one cares to know WHY there is this BIG PUSH on everyone MUST get vaccinated, then get the booster shots, and continue wearing masks even while swimming in the pool, having sex, or alone in the Alaskan wilderness, all one need know is that our leaders- both right and left- invest their money in BIG PHARMA stocks.  That is all one need know.
  90. 2021 Thursday O: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.03 (2) General Dynamics: $195.49 (3) Boeing: $212.09 (4) Lockheed Martin: $354.03 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $361.25.  Likewise, even though it may not be popular, Democrats and Republicans alike invest in military-industrial complex stocks because the government directs money to them via contracts and money comes back to them in the form of donations, the classic money-go-round that the Kinks once sang about.
  91. 2021 Thursday P: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Pennsylvania legislature is demanding an election audit of the 2020 Elections.
  92. 2021 Thursday Q: Joe Biden News I– A new Rasmussen poll says that 17-percent of Joe Biden voters now wish they had voted for President Donald J. Trump instead.  We believe that and what is more, we suspect the number is far higher than that, perhaps around 47-57 percent.  Joe would not survive ‘re-election’[xxii] if the vote were held today.  Speaking of old Joe, he is returning to Delaware this afternoon for a long weekend at home.  Guess he must undergo another “Manchurian Candidate” (1961)-style treatment so he can remain somewhat coherent.  Also, no one seems to know where Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is or White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain.  What the f*** is going on?
  93. 2021 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is going to release its new plan with which to better vet and process the millions of illegal aliens trying to swamp the country.  Next, the regime is going to nominate Charles F. “Chuck” Sams III to become the next head of the U.S. National Park Service.  Sams is a tribal leader living in Oregon.
  94. 2021 Thursday S: Political News I– Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, blasts Joe Biden’s U.N. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield for ‘going easy on the Taliban.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Dan Meuser, R-PA 9th congressional district, continues banging the drum as to how the United States left nearly 200 Black Hawk helicopters in Afghanistan?  Meanwhile, outrage continues to grow over the dunce who is the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark A. Milley, and the stupid comments he made yesterday.  Look, this loser should be busted down to buck private and sent to monitor weather at the South Pole.  Talk about a stooge for Beijing.  (Note- the Pentagon claims to have airlifted 7,000 civilians out of Afghanistan.  Question: ours or theirs?)
  95. 2021 Thursday T: Political News II– Fifty U.S. senators are imploring the absent Biden regime to get our Afghan allies out of Afghanistan ASAP.  Meanwhile, as Afghanistan continues down the path of becoming the worst U.S. military and diplomatic disaster since the fall of Saigon in 1975, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, adds her voice to the chorus calling for the resignation of loopy old Joe Biden.   Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, says that ‘real time hearings on the snafu in Afghanistan must occur now.’ 
  96. 2021 Thursday U: Political News III– Meghan McCain, usually a pain in the ass, said something funny today: ‘Joe Biden is like Jimmy Carter on acid.’  Amen.  Hilarious.  Next, crazed liberal Larry David was screaming at famed legal scholar, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, over his ties to President Donald J. Trump.  Larry, sod off.  In other news, we learned today that the Biden regime shut down President Donald J. Trump’s “Crisis Response Bureau” within the U.S. Department of State that was designed to help in, uh, emergencies like what we are now witnessing in Afghanistan.  The Antitrump strikes again.  What is wrong with these losers?
  97. 2021 Thursday V: Federal and State Court News– A U.S. Court of Appeals upholds the Lone Star State’s new abortion ban on abortions AFTER a fetal heartbeat is first detected.   Elsewhere, Big Apple businesses are taking pot-smoking Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio to court over his harsh Chi-Vi vaccine passport restrictions for ALL businesses.  Elsewhere, a federal judge approves the bankruptcy case for the Boy Scouts of America that will see them fork over $850 million to pay off the massive number of sexual assault cases lodged against the once-proud organization.  Elsewhere, a judge in Philadelphia ruled that famed explorer Christopher Columbus’ statue can continue to stand.  Look for Antifa to tear it down soon.  
  98. 2021 Thursday W: Miscellaneous News I– A new Gallup poll says, ‘fewer Americans are imbibing alcohol.’  (Amigos, I contend they are using more medicinal pot- El Chilote).  Another poll says that a large number of Americans do not believe that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is qualified to be president.  (Note- heck, most Californians do not believe she was qualified to be a U.S. senator but at least we got her the hell out of our state.  El Chilote).
  99. 2021 Thursday X: Business News– Swedish scientists create the first ‘fossil fuel free’ steel. 
  100. 2021 Thursday Y: Economic News– Last week, 348,000 Americans filed for first-time jobless benefits.
  101. 2021 Thursday Z: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Florida prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for a POS scumbag who murdered a 26-year-old police officer, Jason Raynor.  Elsewhere, Capitol Hill police evacuated Cannon House congressional office building because some dumb ass was sitting outside in a truck claiming to have ‘explosive material.’  After five hours, he gave up and the police took him into custody.  Watch House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, resurrect ‘Fort Pelosi’ and demand that a division of U.S. Army troops garrison the Capitol at all times.  We suspect that this is yet another false flag operation initiated by the drooling speaker so she can clamp down on the capitol. 
  102. 2021 Thursday AA: Mass Shootings News– In Frankfurt, Indiana, one employee at the NHK Seating of America shot two fellow female coworkers outside in the parking lot.  Awaiting further details on the victims and the mope is in custody.
  103. 2021 Thursday BB: California State News– California continues to burn.  The Dixie Fire in northern California has now consumed 662,000 acres and is only 35-percent contained.  What a disaster, loser Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom needs to lose his office just because of poor forest management and dumb ass decisions as to how PG&E must work hard at going GREEN instead of protecting its transmission lines by putting them underground.
  104. 2021 Thursday CC: Sports News I– This is strange, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation is joining the probe into sexual assault allegations against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.  We didn’t know the FBI investigated allegations of sexual assault.  If they do, they should be investigating “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden, the Groper-in-Chief.
  105. 2021 Thursday DD: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Dane County, Wisconsin, Sheriff Kalvin Barrett announced today that the county will no longer call ‘inmates’ as such but will refer to them as ‘residents’ or as ‘people in our care’ so as not to stigmatize the criminals.  Sheriff Barrett, why don’t you stop inmates raping and beating other inmates?  We bet they would prefer that to the stupid name change.
  106. 2022 Friday: Friends, we are living in bizarre times.  It appears that we have one party aided by allies in the other who want China to become the global superpower.  It appears they believe that things will be much better for citizens of the world if Beijing is the one calling the shots.  Who knows?  Perhaps the American people will be akin to what the Greeks were to the Ancient Romans: slaves, albeit cultured ones, whose ethos the Romans adopted in many ways such as Greek becoming the upper-crust language, as educators, and as athletes and performers.  The Chinese love our basketball (while despising the black players), our movies (as long as they reflect what’s important to Beijing), and our technology which they readily buy or steal.  As far as I am concerned, it is possible the battle could already be over, we just don’t recognize it yet.  Still, when the Chinese physically arrive on our shores, a lot of these mixed-up young people believing themselves to be a gender opposite than the one at birth- along with the gays- are either going to end up in re-education camps or have their heads slapped atop the chopping block.  Our culture is polluted and by design.  The ones at the top will become the new nomenklatura while everyone else will become cogs in the machine– thank you, Pink Floyd.  It might be time to begin playing ball and soon because this November, well, things may not change for the good.  It’s clear the Senate Republicans are not interested in regaining power.  Go figure.  “Cocaine Mitch” didn’t earn that nickname for nothing you know.  We hope by next year we will be able to reconfigure our blog so that it meets the requirements of the contemporary ruling class.  (Note: it will be fascinating to see if the joint military exercises being held in Russia with the Chinese will see Chinese troops introduced into Ukraine.  After all, Nazi Germany had to bail out Fascist Italy time and again).  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0927 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset Crags.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys is yet another archival release.  “The Beach Boys’ Party Uncovered and Unplugged” is an extended expansion of their earlier ‘party album’ from back in the day which we will now revisit for your edification: The next album by the Beach Boys was filler of sorts what with it being an album of covers done with acoustic instruments and vocals.  “Beach Boys Party” came out on November 08, 1965 and was received well even though the times they were a-changing all-right.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Brian Wilson had by this time suffered his first mental breakdown due to the constant stress of being forced by his family members to write hit songs and commercial albums as well as nonstop touring and friction with his abusive father Murray.  He also was experimenting with the popular drugs of the time so he could raise the level of his songwriting which was to come.  We presented this album back on May 22, 2022, a Thursday, by our recollection.  This one features 81 cuts, all of which are a pleasure to behold- audio-wise.  Great album for an increasingly contentious time in the history of the world which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.

  60. 2020 Sunday B: The Democrats continue undergoing meltdowns as they blast the Trump administration for proposing cuts to the U.S. Postal Service.  They want more money going to the USPS so it can ‘manage the increase in mail-in ballots.’  You know, there was a time when the Democrats attempted to conceal their election-stealing attempts whereas now, they could give a hoot.  Various cities have reported boxes of election ballots piling up at post offices or at storage sites, ballots that will flood in on Election Day all in favor of Democrats.  Democrats demand the U.S. postmaster testify in Congress on August 24, the day the GOP Convention commences.  As for election-thieving, well, two can play the same game and when the Democrats are BLOWN out in November, let us see what the sniveling scumbags try to do then?  An actual attempted overthrow of the government?  Thank God gun sales are skyrocketing across the country- careful what you wish for, Democratic Party!  DO NOT ALLOW THE DEMOCRATS TO STEAL THE ELECTION!
  61. 2020 Sunday C: Meanwhile, in Chicago, protests become riots and at least seventeen law enforcement officers suffering injuries as they attempt to quell the violence trashing a once-great city.   In Portland, Oregon, ongoing protests transform into riots there on a nightly basis.  Time to hire special contractors to go in and clean out the filth.

  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.406 per gallon, $3.012 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.896 in Washington state. [xix]    Let us look at one other location- New Mexico: $3.079.  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- Romania: $5.338 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,649,118,365,205 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  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 Grand Cayman Island, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Here are the costs of the Afghan War: (1) 20 years, the longest U.S. war (2) U.S. military deaths: 2,448 (3) U.S. Military wounded: 20,719 (4) U.S. contractor deaths: 3,846 (5) direct costs: $2 trillion.  (6) Costs to 2050 for the American people: $6.5 trillion.  (Source: Newsmax).  (Note- the Western Roman Empire collapsed because (1) inability to control its borders (2) perpetual wars (3) never-ending political strife and (4) normalization of perversion, immorality, and loss of faith.  Sound like any country you might know?)  Meanwhile, former deputy CIA Director Mike Morell says that the collapse of Afghanistan is not an ‘intelligence failure’ but a ‘policy failure.’  Joe Biden is attempting to blame everyone else for his troubles than himself whereas President Harry S. Truman so famously said, “The buck stops here.”  Next, Politico stuck a journalistic dagger into the neck of dictator Joe Biden when they said his ‘chip on his shoulder’ is what caused the debacle the world is watching in Afghanistan as he would NOT listen to his generals.  In other Afghan-related news, at least seven desperate people are dead from falling several thousand feet from outbound aircraft at the Kabul airport.  Meanwhile, outside the White House, Afghan Americans are protesting the White House usurper by shouting, “THEY’RE KILLING OUR PEOPLE!”
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– today is Day No. 146 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 52 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Here are the numbers for illegal aliens and the cost of caring for them as provided by OAN.  First, the cost this day alone is: $652,723,151.  Next, here is the appalling cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country for just this year: $248,821,415,836.  Imagine the good that money could do for the American people and not the flotsam and jetsam of the Third World?  Next, here are the numbers of illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,555,525.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers for all time: 36,555,525.  Horrifying, simply horrifying.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks).
  70. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Talks between the Maduro regime in Venezuela and its opposition are underway in Mexico City.  Meanwhile, after months of turmoil in Malaysia, the prime minister who seized power in a coup relinquished it.  Next, Lebanese police officers and violent protesters clashed in the norther portion of the country where a fuel tank exploded over the weekend killing and injuring numerous people.  Elsewhere, as the U.S. flees out of Afghanistan, the Chi-Coms are telling Taipei to reconsider their belief that the U.S. will come to their rescue when the People’s Liberation Army begins landing on Taiwanese beaches.  Meanwhile, the U.N. Security Council pushes for talks to bring about the formation of the new government in the new Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– As the Taliban continues accumulating and securing power across Afghanistan, Taliban thugs both inside and outside the empty U.S. embassy are chanting, “Death to America, death to America, death to America.”  Nice they love us so much.  Meanwhile, at the airport in Kabul, U.S. troops in two difference incidents shoot dead a pair of Taliban thugs.  Chaos at the airport has put a hold on exit flights.  As the catastrophe unfolds, dictator Joe Biden says he stands by his decision ‘to flee Afghanistan and to leave the people to the mercies of the Taliban.’  Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that this is “Saigon on steroids.”
  72. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– today Health experts announced that ‘herd immunity may never be achieved with COVID-19.’ Meanwhile, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the American people must ‘set aside personal liberties so we can join forces to do battle with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’ (It is ALWAYS, we must surrender our God-given personal liberties to climb aboard the BIG GOVERNMENT train).
  73. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– An Indiana man found himself in the intensive care unit of his city after contracting flesh-eating bacteria following the consumption of raw oysters.  (Folks, we gave up eating raw oysters long ago and would recommend that everyone else do the same thing.  Besides, they do not do what people believe they do, it is all in the mind).
  74. 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Harvard University and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, medical professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff told Greg Kelly on Newsmax over the weekend that Joe Biden’s demand for vaccine mandates creates distrust of the vaccines in people who have already had the disease.  Dr. Kulldorff says it must stop.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Dr. Francis Collins- Director of National Institute of Health- says that ‘unvaccinated Americans pose more problems for the United States than do the millions of illegal aliens flooding into the country.’  What a party apparatchik.  In Colorado on the first day of school, masks and law enforcement officers are all over the place.  Speaking of schools and COVID-19, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that the feds ‘cannot pay off school superintendents’ to follow the regime’s orders.  Regarding Florida, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that ‘parents cannot sue over the mask ban’ he put into place with an executive order.
  75. 2021 Monday M: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $48.91 (2) AstraZeneca $58.75 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.84 (4) BioNTech $343.10 (5) Moderna $373.86.  As we say, IF you wish to understand the reason for the BIG PUSH that everyone ‘get vaccinated’ or undergo immediate transport to Devil’s Island or to a leper colony (as well as all the mask mandates), just follow the money.  Politicians and bigwigs and other titans of the globe all are invested in these companies, companies that CANNOT BE SUED no matter how badly one is affected by a vaccine, which also gives them incredible power over the people they rule.
  76. 2021 Monday N: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Arizona announces that the week of August 22, 2021, is when they will release the preliminary report on the election fraud and corruption that went on in the Copper State surrounding the November 2020 Elections.  Meanwhile, as the disastrous Biden regime stumbles about like a punch-drunk boxer, we hope that more states will begin audits of the 2020 Elections because this disastrous mess cannot continue much longer.  Yes, we do miss President Donald J. Trump and he must return to the White House.  Those involved in the rampant election fraud and corruption must go to prison if not to the gallows for their crimes and perfidy.  There are many, many traitors who must pay the price for their betrayal, their disloyalty, and their treachery.  Chef Hector Santanamos Del Soto.
  77. 2021 Monday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Now that Joe Biden has sold out the Afghan people to the Taliban and- even worse– to the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump asks the question: ‘who will Joe Biden sell out next?’  The President also slammed the usurper in the White House for his ‘grossly incompetent’ abandonment of Afghanistan to the jihadists. 
  78. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden News I– Afghan Americans arrived outside the White House over the past weekend protesting the abandonment of their country to the cruel jihadist hoodlums.  Speaking of senile Joe Biden, chief pollster at the Trafalgar Group, Robert Cahaly- says that ‘Joe Biden is more popular than his policies.’  All day, the White House said that Joe Biden was ‘going to address the American people’ on the mess in Afghanistan.  Finally, he did and did what all of us knew he would: blame President Donald J. Trump and the Afghan people for being losers.  Wow.  The Deputy National Security Adviser Jonathan Finer says there will be ‘grave consequences for the Taliban if the riffraff interfere in the U.S. withdrawal from Kabul and across Afghanistan.’  Even worse for Joe Biden is his reluctance to give American citizens priority in the evacuation out of the destabilized Central Asian country.
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. State Department said earlier today that ALL U.S. embassy staff is at the airport in Kabul but thanks to the pandemonium occurring there, the U.S. authorities on the ground have suspended outbound flights until control can be reestablished.   Meanwhile, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley is defending his misguided assessment as to the strength of the Taliban.  (Note- Gen. Milley, you sound like the Nazis who underestimated Russian troop strength in late 1941 through 1942.  YOU must resign, sir.  NOW).  In other Biden regime news, Joe says the USDA is going to permanently increase food stamp benefits, i.e., SNAP benefits, because there are millions of foreign invaders who need to eat.  In other Biden regime news, the Bidenistas are filing a challenge to a recent court order to revive President Donald J. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Come on, Joe, we have enough illegal aliens in the country.  Can’t we stop already? 
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News I– As things continue deteriorating in Afghanistan, Vice President Mike Pence places the blame for the calamity unfolding there squarely atop the culprit responsible: drooling Joe Biden.  Former Army General (and CIA Director) David H. Petraeus says that ‘no good can come from the precipitous abandonment of Kabul to the Islamists.’  Security experts are now saying that ‘another 9-11-style attack is only a matter of time’ (especially with wide-open borders).  As things worsen in Kabul, the Republican Party is demanding the resignations of Joe Biden, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.  (Speaking of ‘Cryin’ Chuck,’ he is outraged over the need to crack down on fake China Virus vaccine cards.  Chuck- f**k you).
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News II– An angry House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is demanding that the House of Representatives launch a probe into the abrupt collapse of Afghanistan.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, says that ‘Joe Biden takes the final blame for the collapse of Afghanistan.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s arrogance led to the turmoil in Afghanistan.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell is accusing the Biden regime of outing U.S. intelligence officers on Twitter.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Political News III– Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies told Newsmax that Joe Biden may be unable to control the amount of Afghan refugees who will try to enter our country.  Next, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should resign from office over the disaster in Afghanistan.’   U.S. GOP Senate campaign Chairman Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, is floating the idea that the time is now to use the 25th Amendment to get enfeebled old Joe Biden out of the White House ASAP.  Former National Security Adviser to President Donald J. Trump- H.R. McMaster- says that ‘Joe Biden’s humanitarian disaster will equate with increased security risks for the United States.’  Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Joe Biden is the most incompetent commander-in-chief in the past forty years’ (the other one being President Jimmy Carter).   (Note- Joe Biden claims he will not repeat the past mistakes made by three other presidents in Afghanistan).   
  83. 2021 Monday U: Political News IV– Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, says that ‘firings must occur surrounding the debacle in Afghanistan.’  Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says that ‘Joe Biden ignored warnings regarding Afghanistan and now owns the disaster.’  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, told Greg Kelly on Newsmax that the ‘administration had NO plan with which to evacuate our embassy or the people who fought alongside us in the Central Asian hellhole.’  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says ‘we should have maintained a presence at Baghram Air Base instead of leaving it to the enemy.’  Both agree that WHEN we have to return to the ‘graveyard of empires,’ the Taliban will be better armed with U.S. abandoned weapons of all types.’
  84. 2021 Monday V: Miscellaneous News I– The federal government is giving Florida $500 million to help with the manatee crisis.  Meanwhile, the U.S. National Park Service is making masks mandatory at all parks in the U.S.
  85. 2021 Monday W: Business News– The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration- the NHTSA for short- is probing issues regarding autopilot in Tesla motor vehicles.
  86. 2021 Monday X: Mass Shootings News– It appears to have been a quiet weekend in Chicago what with eight dead and fifty-six injured in shootings across the Windy City.
  87. 2021 Monday Y: Big Tech News– Google whistleblower Scott Voorhies says that his employer changed its algorithms to unfairly target President Donald J. Trump throughout 2020.  To keep unwelcome news trending for President Trump, they would attach old stories to new ones to keep them pushed up to the front of the pack.  Elsewhere, T-Mobile is probing claims that hackers ripped off the data of 100 million users.
  88. 2021 Monday Z: Environmental News I– As we have said for close to a decade now, the Sun is the driver of all climate change, NOT CO2.  Well, a new study confirms that but observe this: solar activity- sunspots, solar flares, and solar winds- ebbs and flows.  When there is more activity, the entire Solar System warms up and when there is less, it cools down.  IF you get rid of ALL carbon dioxide emissions, plants will wither and die, oxygen production will fall off, and eventually, you end up with a planet like Mars.  All one must do to learn the truth is to find unbiased university professors willing to teach truthful geography classes and not this dumb-ass Marxist ‘global warming’ bulls**t dimwits such as AOC, Al Gore, and Greta Thunberg run around squealing and crying about.  Wake up, dummies.
  89. 2021 Monday AA: Natural Disasters News– Like California, wildfires are raging across Spain.  Meanwhile, one person died over the weekend as a party boat sailing the calm waters of Lake Conroe in the Texas town of Conroe flipped over when a freak storm crashed into the ship.  The two-story craft had fifty-three people aboard when the mishap occurred, and an older man died at the hospital following injuries sustained in the accident.
  90. 2021 Monday BB: California State News– As Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom continues sobbing that the “GOP is trying to get me in the recall election,’ today, we learned that copious quantities of bond money set aside to build water infrastructure in the Golden State is just sitting there, unused.  Damn it, Gov. Newsom, if you even cared about your job, get work underway NOW on the Sacramento Delta diversion project that will safely send northern California water south to the farmers and the citizens of the state.  Loser.  Regarding “Nazi” Newsom, a new poll (supposedly) claims Golden State voters find themselves split in the recall effort to remove the WORST governor in all fifty states and five territories.
  91. 2021 Monday CC: Nevada State News– Former Republican Silver State Attorney General Adam Laxalt has filed papers to compete against sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, D-NV, for the seat in November 2022.  
  92. 2021 Monday DD: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov (who says his mother was the one who imbued his scandalous behavior into him when he was a youngster) says, “I could have beaten impeachment.”  Then why are you leaving, you corrupt POS?  Even as Cuomo is in the process of exiting the governor’s office, he issued a mandate today: ALL Empire State health care professionals MUST undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Wow.  What a loser.
  93. 2021 Monday EE: Oklahoma State News– Patriotic Oklahomans demonstrated at their state capital over the weekend, protesting the Chi-Vi vaccine and mask mandates government is trying to foist onto them. 
  94. 2021 Monday FF: Texas State News– A Texas Supreme Court justice issues a temporary injunction against Lone Star State Democrats seeking to disobey Governor Greg Abbott’s ban on mask mandates in the schools and in public life.  Meanwhile, Texans will soon be able to open carry firearms without permits.
  95. 2021 Monday GG: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed actor Johnny Depp says that Hollywood is ‘boycotting me.’
  96. 2021 Monday HH: The Wrap Up– Prophesy- how soon will we see landing craft doors slamming down on Taiwanese beaches, the subjugation of Ukraine, Islamism spreading like wildfire throughout all of Central Asia, and Cuban and Venezuelan hegemony dispersing through all of Latin America?  With the Antitrump in the White House, we suspect it will begin soon… El Chilote predicts this on this day…
  97. 2022 Tuesday: The plot against President Donald J. Trump continues to grow by the day.  I would like to ask the readers of our blog, did you ever think- since we began back in 2009 writing for the Chi-Com blog site, Choseit.com, that we would have the misfortune of seeing the collapse of our country into Venezuela-style socialism?  Oh, it might not be that way at the moment, folks, but if we do not continue kicking butt from today onward and into 2024, it will be here before you know it.  You folks in Alaska- send Senator Lisa Murkowski packing and elect Kelly Tshibaka and Sarah Palin.  You folks in Wyoming, send that godawful witch “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney packing.  It is time to reclaim our country and to continue reclaiming it.  It’s that or troubled times for all of us but only if we allow it.  I seriously doubt my fellow Americans will permit this to befall our wonderful country.  We know we won’t.  Tell me what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Live long enough and eventually, one will hear every last lick recorded by a veteran band which is why we have “The Big Beat 1963,” a ‘compilation album’ of sorts that came out on December 17, 2013.  Truly more of a Brian Wilson album seeing as how the compilations are his, the album features tracks he wrote prior to the Beach Boys recorded by other up-and-coming pop bands and artists at the time.  According to the source for everything- world-famous Wikipedia- the album was released to ‘keep up with European copyright laws’ that said if you didn’t release something by such and such a date, one’s copyright on the material could be lost.  Thus, we have “The Big Beat 1963,” an album containing 22 heretofore unreleased tracks.  We hope you seek this one out and add it to your growing list of recording artists.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we have.  Who knows?  You might even be able to find it at your local library.

[i] We hope to promote the music of the Soft Machine at some point within the next 3-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when that celebrated day arrives.  We thank you.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

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

[iv] Quill began the day coming on at 2:00 P.M.  Following them were (in order of appearance) Country Joe McDonald, Santana, John Sebastian, the Keef Hartley Band, the Incredible String Band, Canned Heat, Mountain, the Grateful Dead, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin with the Kozmic Blues Band, Sly & the Family Stone, the Who, and the Jefferson Airplane.  The official end of the musical festivities occurred the following morning at 9:40 A.M.

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

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

[vii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[viii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[ix] We won’t be doing the music of this skank unless we are still going in another 50 years or so…you never know, what with HGH, all kinds of strange things are occurring.

[x] When we begin celebrating the music of Motown, Aretha Franklin will be among those artists.

The Dems- I used to be one until I AWOKE- KNOW that President Donald J. Trump is going to return to office along with a continuing tidal wave of Republicans…

AND KEEP HER THAT WAY!
