2022 Saturday: I don’t know about you, but I am still awaiting Chief Justice John Roberts to release the report on the leaker of the opinion written by Associate Justice Samuel Alito that overturned the vile Roe v. Wade. Many seemingly have forgotten he promised to do this. Others suspect he will never do it whereas we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have come to believe that Chief Justice Roberts is the leaker.

  83. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– A mother is suing the Transportation Security Administration- the TSA- because TSA goons strip-searched her tranny kid.   Next, now that the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down by a vote of 6-3 Joe Biden’s evictions moratorium, the question is would the Biden regime honor it?  Next, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is demanding that slobbering Joe Biden recognize the opposition in Afghanistan and NOT- we repeat- the Taliban.  (Note- the Antitrump is going to do the exact opposite of whatever President Donald J. Trump and common sense would do).  Meanwhile, POS Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, says there will be ‘NO impeachment of Joe Biden resulting from the regime’s bad decisions.’  (Note- to Ronna McDaniel, chairperson of the RNC, you can understand WHY millions of Republicans will no longer donate to the organization because of all the RATS within the party.  Clean out the rats and watch the money flow, don’t and watch it go).
  84. 2021 Friday L: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Aaron Babbitt, widower of Ashli Babbitt murdered by Capitol Hill Police Department Lt. Michael Byrd says that ‘D.C. and the media ran cover’ for this POS scumbag who shot an unarmed woman.  (Note- most of us believe that since Lt. Byrd is flawed from having two incidences of leaving his loaded service firearm in public places, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered that ‘someone had to die’ during the riots.  It is as if a certain degree of violence had to occur so it could be spun to the advantage of the Democrats.  Shame on them).  Meanwhile, District of Columbia officials are bracing for the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001, terror attacks as well as a protest in support of the brave souls being held in the D.C. slammer for having been on Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021.
  85. 2021 Friday M: Political News I– As Democratic-Socialists continue saying ignorant things (Sandy “The Fly” Cortez ranks towards the top), U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer says, ‘it’s not at all inappropriate for politics to affect his retirement decision.’  The socialists want him to step down so they can place some loony tunes crackpot loser onto the nation’s high court.  We hope he stays.  Next, a new Rasmussen Reports poll says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s popularity continues to fall which we believe is because of all the lying in which, he has engaged.  He must be careful, look at what happened to ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  Like Daedalus and his son, Icarus, Icarus flew too close to the Sun and went down like a stone.  It is important for one to know their place in the world.  Speaking of Cuomo, Politico reports that the disgraced Empire State former chief executive is ‘plotting revenge’ on new Empire State Governor Kathy Hochul.  Why?  She didn’t bring you down, Mr. Cuomo, you brought yourself down, dimwit.
  86. 2021 Friday N: How bad can things continue getting?  I hate to say it, I think we are on the cusp of disaster.  Why the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the North Koreans, even the Cubans and the Venezuelans and every Third World terrorist group are not moving against us this very minute is mind-boggling.  We have a feeble president, one who clasps his head in his hands and mumbles, stumbles, rumbles around are not only humiliating, but it’s also damned well dangerous.  PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP, WE NEED YOU BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE NOW.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.
  87. 2022 Saturday:  I don’t know about you, but I am still awaiting Chief Justice John Roberts to release the report on the leaker of the opinion written by Associate Justice Samuel Alito that overturned the vile Roe v. Wade.  Many seemingly have forgotten he promised to do this.  Others suspect he will never do it whereas we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have come to believe that Chief Justice Roberts is the leaker.  For more than a decade now, conservatives have been suspicious of the ‘conservatism’ of Justice Roberts because he seems to be more in the tank for the Democrats and the liberals- especially since President Donald J. Trump changed the face of the court with three right-leaning justices- because he believes in some sort of equilibrium so long as it leans left.  He is the one, after all, who prevented the deeply flawed Obamacare from falling onto the scrap heap of history just as he has saved other leftist laws.  I suspect that he is the sole leaker of the decision ending Roe because he is beholden to the LEFT and always has been.  All one need do is to look at the president who appointed him: George W. Bush.  Boy, do we have buyer’s remorse on that one.  Let me know what you think- Chef Goldie McNamara.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0934 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Verbena Sundown.”  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, giclees, 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:

After 36 years, Beach Boys vocalist, Mike Love, returned with his second solo album: “Unleash the Love,” put out on November 17, 2017.  Mike Love had been compiling songs for more than three decades, having a musical vision contained within his mind but requiring an army of musicians to make the dream materialize.  Eventually, he brought in loads of musicians and over the course of the sessions released a quality solo album.  He included a disc featuring re-records of earlier Beach Boys songs so as to keep the money flowing from updated copyrights which is cool.  Performers such as Eric Burdon have done the same thing only he unwittingly lost control of his music.  Mr. Love has not.  We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite site for the best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

238. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2022

I would like to say that IF the United Nations cannot find a way to stop this extremely illegal and criminal war, then the UN should disband. We should kick this corrupt and phony organization out of the United States and have them go set up shop in Beijing, another illicit, criminal-run nation. The UN obviously is a Third World bandstand for global dictators and murderers and does absolutely nothing to prevent wars, to stop wars, or to punish evildoers such as Vladimir Putin.

  56. 2011 Friday: Japan’s National Police Agency reports that 90-percent of cyberattacks on its website came from IP addresses located in the People’s Republic of China.   Why would information such as this surprise anyone?  In 2019, the Chi-Coms are trying to get everyone to take their Huawei 5 G network and in 2020, various countries including the U.S. are trying to boot out their ‘social media ap’ (spying ap) TikTok.
  57. 2012 Sunday: Lydia Ko, a 15-year-old amateur golfer, wins the Canadian Women’s Open; she is the youngest winner ever on the LPGA Tour and first amateur to win since JoAnne Carner in 1969.

  60. 2015 Wednesday: Alison Parker, a reporter for WDBJ-TV in Roanoke, Va., and her cameraman, Adam Ward, were shot to death during a live broadcast by disgruntled former station employee, Bryce Williams (Vester Lee Flannagan II) who fatally shot himself while being pursued by police.  The murderer was a militant homosexual POS who had made unfounded charges of ‘racism’ against the station.
  61. 2016 Friday: San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick kneels for the first time in protest of the U.S. flag because of police brutality and systemic racism (and whatever else was pissing him off) prior to a game at Qualcomm Stadium against the San Diego Chargers. 
  62. 2017 Saturday: Hurricane Harvey spun into Texas, unloading extraordinary amounts of rain.  The hurricane would kill 68 people as well as damage more than 300,000 structures at an estimated cost of $125 billion.  Elsewhere, Iraq’s military said it had driven Islamic State aka Da’ish or ISIS out of 90 percent of the northern town of Tal Afar.  Meanwhile, Floyd Mayweather Jr. beats UFC fighter Conor McGregor in a boxing match in Las Vegas that was stopped by the referee in the 10th round; it was the last fight of Mayweather’s career, and it earned him an estimated $200 million.  The victory put “Pretty Boy’s” professional career stats to 50-0 while McGregor’s loss did not alter his record.
  63. 2018 Sunday: In the fist papal visit to Dublin, Ireland, since 1979, Pope Francis asks forgiveness in a speech on child abuse within the Catholic Church.   Meanwhile, new president of Zimbabwe Emmerson Mnangagwa takes the oath of office.
  64. 2019 Monday: In the first trial against a large drug manufacturer with a BIG HAND in the ongoing opioid crisis, a judge orders Johnson & Johnson to fork out $572 million.  Elsewhere, in Biarritz, France, a meeting of the G7 nations agrees to pay $20 million (such a paltry amount) to help fight the horrifying forest fires devouring the Amazonian rainforest.   Meanwhile, American movie star Leonardo DiCaprio and his environmental group Earth Alliance says he- and it- will pay $5 million which is a BIG SLAP in the face to the G7 leaders.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Basement-dwelling “Pro-China Joe” Biden says the Republican National Convention is an ‘alternate reality.’  His good pal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi mumbles that the House will investigate Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s speech from Jerusalem the previous night as some sort of illegal speech.  Speaking of angry Democrats, BIG LOSER Hillary Rodham Clinton continues telling the Biden campaign “Not to concede under any circumstances on Election Day” as she believes ‘he will eventually win.”  Four years ago, she was blasting Donald J. Trump for saying he would have to ‘wait and see’ before accepting the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.  My, how times have changed.  Meanwhile, Democrats continue attacking First Lady Melania Trump for ‘not being able to speak English when she gave her speech in the White House rose garden the previous night.’  Well, many believe it’s better to have a first lady with an accent than one with a swinging dill pickle like the prior one.  Add to this the fact that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, is attempting to take a second bite at the apple by demanding Deutsche Bank hand over President Trump’s financial records.   Finally, Democrats are beginning to express their dissatisfaction with “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s ‘basement strategy.’  Hell, we could have told you he wasn’t going to win if he continues on addressing the nation from his bunker.
  66. 2020 Wednesday A: In the Gulf of Mexico, Hurricane Laura is expected to be a Cat 4 storm when it makes landfall some time tomorrow along the Texas-Louisiana coastlines with winds up to 115 mph, 15-20 feet of storm surge, and hitting up to 60 miles inland.  In Texas, 420,000 people are evacuating as are between 200,000-250,000 people in Louisiana.  God help them.  Meanwhile, in California, wildfires have ravaged more than 36.5 million acres, an area more than 6-times the size of New York City.  Already, at least 7 lives have been lost as have countless homes and businesses.  Speaking of lost lives, after two nights of hardcore rioting and looting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the shooting of Jacob Blake, gunfire kills 2 and injures at least one.  Police have dragnets out for the shooters as more National Guard troops AND federal law enforcement officers arrive on scene.  Speaking of RIOTS, after 90 straight days of violent protests- and five straight nights of called ‘riots’ in Portland, Oregon, Gov. Kate Brown demands it STOPS NOW.  The Trump administration wants to send in troops and is pushing the Democrat governor to accept them.  (If you want our opinion- and we know you do, otherwise you would not be here, it’s time to round up ALL rioters and commit a Malmedy Massacre on them).  Elsewhere- on the other side of the planet- in response to a U2 surveillance flight over territory the Chi-Coms claim is their own, the Chi-Com military fires off two missiles a la North Korean-style as a form of ‘protest.’  F**k them!
  67. 2020 Wednesday B: Here are tonight’s speakers at the Republican National Convention: Lara Trump, Trump campaign senior advisor, Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, Sen.

  68. 2020 Wednesday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 24,011,502 confirmed cases, UP by 316,856 cases, 821,809 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,555 deaths, and 15,636,116 confirmed recoveries, UP by 255,012 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,899,331 confirmed cases, UP by 49,053 new cases, 181,791 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,416 new deaths, and 3,002,904 confirmed recoveries, UP by 22,300 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 c**ksuckers).
  69. 2020 Wednesday D: 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: 679,099 confirmed cases, 12,407 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,984 confirmed cases, 49 confirmed deaths, and 2,236 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,904 confirmed cases, 1,876 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, New Mexico: 24,732 confirmed number of cases, 755 confirmed number of deaths, but unlike other Blue State locales, there are 12,193 confirmed recoveries in the state.

  71. 2020 Wednesday F: Tucker Carlson reports on his show that one of the candidates for district attorney in Los Angeles is San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, someone supported by Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom who wants to abolish all jails and prisons as well as disband the police.  He also reports the truth that the upheavals in the United States are not ‘race-based’ but ‘class-based,’ the classic Marxist assault on society.   It is clear to many that this election is one in which FREEDOM goes up against COMMUNISM which means we have one choice and one choice only: DEFEAT the Democrats and everyone connected to them.  Thank you, Democratic-Socialist Party of America- the DSPA- the NEW Democratic Party, you have sold your souls and you are making it easier for us to crush you.
  72. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 215,334,933 confirmed cases, +639,531, 4,485,353 confirmed deaths, +10,007 and 192,533,417 confirmed recoveries, +509,278.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 39,276,310 confirmed cases, UP 121,109 from yesterday’s reporting, 650,778 confirmed deaths, UP 1,010, [vi] and 30,708,149 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,910.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 332,090 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 71,988 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  74. 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: 4,287,231 confirmed cases, 65,481 confirmed deaths (DOWN), and 2,251,942 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,175,740 confirmed cases, 42,731 confirmed deaths, and 2,329,520 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 58,578 confirmed cases, 573 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 544,843 confirmed cases, 6,508 confirmed deaths, and 242,913 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., North Dakota: they have 116,022 confirmed cases, 1,556 confirmed deaths, and 112,460 confirmed recoveries. [viii]   
  75. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,025,336 confirmed cases, 6,929 confirmed deaths, and 942,943 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Sao Tome and Principe, 192nd country on the list: 2,570 cases of the virus, 37 confirmed deaths and 2,415 confirmed recoveries.

[xiii]        
  77. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.392 per gallon, $2.954 in Florida, $4.080 in Hawaii, and $3.898 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let us look at one other location- Tennessee: $2.839.  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- Cyprus: $5.807 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,687,438,612,295 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 France, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Norway with $88 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.
  78. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Today, ISIS-K- with the blessing of the Taliban- carried out TWO catastrophic suicide bombings at or near the Hamid Karzai International Airport.  First, a bomb attack hit the Abbey Gate and then a nearby hotel suffered an attack.  At least 11-12 U.S. Marines and one U.S. Navy corpsman were killed outright while another 15 suffered grievous wounds.  At least 40-50 Afghans lost their lives and another 120-140 were injured.  For the U.S., this was the worst attack in a decade and the first deaths in the godforsaken Islamic hellhole in 18 months.  A stuttering, stumbling Joe Biden mumbled condolences and promised retribution and as soon as he answered 3-4 ‘canned questions,’ he rambled off into the background.  Almost immediately, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki had to rush out and spend 35-45 minutes answering reporters’ questions because it was clear that Joe Biden had no idea what the hell, he had for breakfast this morning.  Still, Joe Biden vowed to hunt down the scoundrels responsible for this attack, but it rapidly became clear- at least to us- that as soon as he left the stage, he had no clue as to what he had just said.
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News II– Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that ‘swift retaliatory action’ is called for against the ISIS-K thugs.  Meanwhile, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, says, ‘don’t kid yourselves, terrorist attacks coming to the U.S. sooner rather than later.’  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says that ‘open borders invite terrorist attacks inside the U.S.’  Next, Senator Bob “Cho-Mo” Menendez, DS-NJ, says the U.S. ‘cannot trust the Taliban with Americans’ security.’  Moving on, former National Security Advisor to President Donald J. Trump- H.R. McMaster- says that this is ’just the beginning.’  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, and Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, join the chorus demanding the feeble old regime leader resign NOW.  Finally, the Pentagon is preparing for MORE attacks as the days remaining to the evacuation before the Taliban go ballistic dwindle almost to nothing.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 155 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xvii] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 62 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $533,726,656.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $260,259,823,616.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,667,454.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,667,456.   (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).
  81. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $47.38 (2) AstraZeneca $58.76 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.30 (4) BioNTech $369.99 (5) Moderna $400.30.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.76 (2) General Dynamics: $199.07 (3) Boeing: $216.50 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.62 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $366.76.
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– We learned today that the Biden White House team gave personal information on Americans and Afghan allies remaining in Afghanistan to the Taliban so the terrorists could ‘help us’ collect them and get them to the airport.  WTF, people?  This man and this regime must go, and it must go NOW.  The Kabul bombings have shaken this crumbling regime to its core and it’s clear that with increasing calls for resignations from the regime leader on down to the losers in the Pentagon that this fraudulent regime cannot last much longer.
  84. 2021 Thursday L: Political News I– Democrats are urging the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to provide Afghans with temporary protected status so they can come to the U.S.  In other political news, seven sniveling Capitol Hill Police Department offices have filed lawsuits against President Donald J. Trump and his allies, blaming him and them for their emotional traumas and upsets.  We watched four of these crybabies testifying before “Mumbles” Pelosi’s bogus January 06, 2021, House panel.  Wah, wah, wah, stop with the frigging tears you frigging punks, the FBI already says there was no coordination between anyone on the day of the biggest FALSE FLAG OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN POLITICS!  YOU LOSERS ARE A DISGRACE!
  85. 2021 Thursday M: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg plead ‘no contest’ to two fatalities in an automobile accident while supposedly under the influence.  In doing so, he avoids jail time.  Meanwhile, the assassin of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Sirhan Bashara Sirhan, is seeking parole; the government won’t contest it (because most believe he did not do it).  Next, two people are killed and one wounded in a targeted courthouse shooting in Illinois.
  86. 2022 Friday: Today’s Points– As a woman, I find the crime of rape to be especially appalling.  On Newsmax, Greta Van Susteren has run a special on Russian war crimes in Ukraine with yesterday’s topic being the ongoing, Kremlin-approved rapes of Ukrainian women in the occupied territories. Every guilty Russian soldier should be castrated on the spot and have their slimy organs thrust into their mouths and then dumped face-down into an open sewage ditch.  One must wonder how crimes such as these can remain under the radar in a world that claims to be against wartime atrocities.  NO one seems to care.  I would like to say that IF the United Nations cannot find a way to stop this extremely illegal and criminal war, then the UN should disband.  We should kick this corrupt and phony organization out of the United States and have them go set up shop in Beijing, another illicit, criminal-run nation.  The UN obviously is a Third World bandstand for global dictators and murderers and does absolutely nothing to prevent wars, to stop wars, or to punish evildoers such as Vladimir Putin.  Sure, they’ll go after some POS from Myanmar or the former Yugoslavia but when it comes to punishing a piece of duck crap like Vladimir Putin, oh, nothing is said.  If I could, I would.  I would gladly pull the trigger and give him something to think about on his one-way journey to hell.  Let me know what you think- Chef Goldie McNamara.

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 “1967- Sunshine Tomorrow 2- the Studio Sessions,” an even more beefed-up version of “Wild Honey” released on July 30, 2017.  Here is what we said regarding the aforementioned “Wild Honey”- although the Beach Boys were on the decline, the next album, “Wild Honey,” came out on December 18, 1967, and is one we absolutely love and wholeheartedly recommend.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass) as it was all hands-on deck.  The album features nothing but quality material beginning with the upbeat, “Wild Honey,” to the captivating “Aren’t You Glad,” to a cover of Stevie Wonder’s, “I Was Made to Love Her,” to the live classic, “Darlin’,” to the playful, “I’d Love Once Just to See You.” Also on the album is a raucous “Here Comes the Night” to yet another long-time live classic, “Let the Wind Blow.”  The other songs on the album are not filler but all quality material.  This album also includes “Smiley Smile” and everything surrounding that release plus more-more-more.  The Beach Boys were growing beards, sporting longer hair, and wearing modern-day clothing like the rest of the wild and crazy acts of the late 1960s.  You get loads of additional material plus seven concerts and portions of others all recorded back in the day.  Too good to be true.  We hope you will seek this one out and definitely make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  You will love it.

  71. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 152 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xvii] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 59 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $740,075,040.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $255,043,156,448.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,624,352.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,624,354.  (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).
  72. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The FDA has given the Pfizer-BioNTech Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine full approval which is going to lead to loads of problems as we shall see.  First of all, Pentagon spokesman Admiral John Kirby said today that ‘ALL U.S. military personnel must get the vaccine- or else.’  Next, U.S. Surgeon General Admiral Vivek Murthy said today that he expects more businesses and universities to impose vaccine mandates on customers and students since the FDA cleared the vaccine.
  73. 2021 Monday I: Health and Medical Alerts– The Food and Drug Administration is warning U.S. citizens NOT to use Ivermectin to treat the Chi-Com Kung Flu Virus.  Meanwhile, a new report that came out and then seemed to vanish suggests that vaccinated people are more inclined to come down with serious illnesses than unvaccinated people than previously thought.  NO f—king way any of us plan to get this crap vaccine.  Dr. Ben Carson says that ‘vaccine mandates are shaping a terrible future.’
  74. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says ‘yes, there is mask fatigue, but everyone is going to have to continue wearing them’ even as we see pictures of the big soiree held by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian hypocrite, over the weekend where NO ONE but the servers wore masks.  What a farce, what a joke, what bulls**t but apparently when a Democrat hosts a $29,000 per plate party and no one but the staff wears masks, why should any of the rest of us wear masks?  We have no intention of bowing down to this crap anymore.  Speaking of Democrats, New York judges are ordering that ALL defendants get vaccinated for the Bat Flu or else.  What is up with all these threats?  Joe Biden said today that ‘since the FDA approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, he expects more businesses to demand that ALL employees get vaccinated or lose their jobs.  Finally, the fake news has terrified enough people that a poll says 40-percent of the American people are less likely to fly on airlines if the mask mandates go by the wayside.
  75. 2021 Monday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $49.93 (2) AstraZeneca $58.80 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.61 (4) BioNTech $382.10 (5) Moderna $411.89.
  76. 2021 Monday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.96 (2) General Dynamics: $198.01 (3) Boeing: $219.40 (4) Lockheed Martin: $357.35 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $362.68.
  77. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden urges the U.S. Supreme Court to keep his evictions moratorium in place.  Speaking of the decrepit regime leader, his approval ratings have dropped below the fifties to 48-percent (which in all truth- without the Fake News interference- is most likely down in the low thirties at best).
  78. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– National Security Advisor Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan said this morning that ‘Joe Biden won’t rule out sending MORE troops to Afghanistan to help beleaguered Americans and Afghan allies trying to get through the cordon surrounding the Hamid Karzai International Airport.’  (Note- Joe is going to get us into a wider war.  Someone please tell the reprobate losers Susan Rice and Barack Hussein Obama to STOP destroying the country).  Even more shocking is that an Axios report says that the Biden regime is NOT expected to fire ANY OFFICIALS over the ongoing debacle in Afghanistan as doing so would mean the regime would have to admit that it screwed everything up.
  79. 2021 Monday O: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Police in Portland, Oregon, are investigating a shooting incident between the Proud Boys and Antifa punks.  Wouldn’t it be great if the police of Portland and of the state actually did their jobs?  Speaking of the Proud Boys, leader Enrique Tarrio gets five months in the slammer for having burned a frigging Black Lives Matter flag.  What a load of crap but that is what happens when a fake regime is in the White House.
  80. 2021 Monday P: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov spent his last day in office by saying to his accusers, ‘someday the truth is going to come out’ as to how he was railroaded out of office.  Still, the loser can’t make any friends what him leaving his dog behind in the gubernatorial mansion and his commuting the sentences of FOUR CONVICTED MURDERERS.  Public opinion is staunchly deadest against these actions and yet, the outgoing governor did it anyway.  We expect California’s loser Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to do the same thing in the (hopeful) waning days of his regime seeing as how millions of Californians are anxious to see him go.
  81. 2021 Monday Q: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, tested positive for the Chi-Vi today after testing positive last week.  Speaking of Governor Abbott, Tucker Carlson on Fox News this evening asked WHEN the Lone Star State’s governor is going to deploy troops to the southern border.
  82. 2021 Monday R: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– Here are the results for the Powerball Monday Night Draw #875 what with a $293 million jackpot on the line: 17, 36, 47, 60, 61, and Mega 15.  Out of 43,992 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 24 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $495.
  83. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Get this- Joe Biden’s aides reportedly were afraid to challenge their boss’ timeline on fleeing Afghanistan.  Who is fearful of Joe Biden?  What a load of crap.  The regime’s apparatchiks continue trying to make it appear that this senile old POS is somehow running the show.  The man can’t even tell his ass from a hole in the ground.  In other whacked out news of the day, everyone must look into the 30/30 Plan.  You won’t find it on a normal browser, use Duck-Duck Go or another secured browser to see the bulls**t the federal government is doing to U.S. farmers.  They are paying them to DESTROY croplands and to dump out any oil they may have so by 2030, 30-percent of the land in the U.S. will be in ‘conservation.’  This also is going to create dependence upon foreign sources of food.  This is frigging crazy.
  84. 2022 Tuesday: For now, unlike my colleagues, I am going to keep my thoughts to myself.  There are a whole lot of intrusions out there seeking to crash our servers.  It is what it is.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0930 a 40” x 60” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset Dreams.”  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, giclees, 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:

Once again, Europe f**ked everything up when they began jimmying around with copyright laws but what the hell- it caused record companies to dig deep into their vaults and to then release archival material lest they lose the copyright.  Thus, today, we have the next live album from the Beach Boys- “Graduation Day 1966- Live at the University of Michigan”- released on December 09, 2016.  You get two shows for the price of one plus the rehearsals.  If you enjoyed the old Beach Boys album, “Beach Boys Concert”- which is a glorious live album for its day, you will most definitely enjoy this one.  We hope you will seek this one out and to make it part of your daily listening rotation- you will be glad you did.

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.

  58. 2019 Tuesday: In a small town in Texas, after black hats hack twenty-two computer systems and infect them with ransomware, the FBI swoops in to investigate the coordinated attacks.   Meanwhile, NASA announces that a mission to explore Jupiter’s moon, Europa, will launch in 2025 in the hope that it can discover life beneath the icecap and in the ocean concealed below.   
  59. 2020 Thursday:  The feds swooped in and arrested conservative firebrand Steve Bannon and three other people for allegedly defrauding investors who contributed to a charitable fund to fund the Wall along the southern border with private money.  The feds claim that he and his cohorts transferred hundreds of thousands of dollars into their private accounts and hammered the quartet with conspiracy to defraud and wire fraud.  We will see where this goes.  Meanwhile, a court blocked President Donald J. 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.     
  61. 2020 Thursday B: This evening is the final night of the Democratic National (mostly virtual and lackluster) Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Scheduled to speak tonight are Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., former Mayor Pete Buttigieg, D-IN, Andrew Yang, Michael Bloomberg (what about #MeToo?), Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-WI, Sen. Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and then- as far as we know- “Pro-China Joe” Biden will give his somnambulant speech.  Hopefully, he will not get up there and blow it by going blank with drool spilling off his chin.  Oh, a feeling of exhilaration fills the hearts of the Democratic-Socialists with their pick- don’t you know the American people are ‘going to have to run to keep up with Mr. Biden’ if he somehow steals the November Election?

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 325,524 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 78,554 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[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. McMaster, who advised President Donald J. Trump, is warning the Pentagon to prepare for the NEXT Chi-Com pandemic before it devastates the world even worse than the Bat Flu has.
  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.
  79. 2021 Friday M: 2020 Election Audit– Republican senate leader in Pennsylvania blocks an audit of the 2020 Election.  Get these people out of office now.   Meanwhile, residents in Wisconsin are demanding an audit of their elections.  Elsewhere, residents of Arizona demand that the state’s Senate release all information on the 2020 Election audit.
  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.

  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.

  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. 

229. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17, 2022

2018 Friday: Twenty-four hours after President Donald J. Trump revoked the security clearance of “former communist” Obama era CIA Director John Brennan, the ousted Deep State apparatchik penned an opinion piece in the New York Times entitled, “President Trump’s Claims of No Collusion are Hogwash.” What an angry POS.

Trump revoked the security clearance of “former communist” Obama era CIA Director John Brennan, the ousted Deep State apparatchik penned an opinion piece in the New York Times entitled, “President Trump’s Claims of No Collusion are Hogwash.” What an angry POS. Like a pit bull attacking another dog, this scumbag cannot let go of the Obama administration’s dastardly set-up of Trump and the people around him in order to destroy his presidency.  Meanwhile, the House Oversight Committee’s ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings demanded an ‘explanation’ from President Trump for revoking Brennan’s security clearance.  Still waiting, we think.

  52. 2020 Monday: Word is now out that New York City- under the watchful eye of Mayor Bill Di Blasio- pot-smoking, Marxist mayor- is on the brink of permanent decline thanks to the mismanagement of both Mayor Bill Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo- both Democrats. Currently, there are 13,177 vacant apartments in the city, a 177-percent increase over last year compiled with a drop of 23-percent of new lease signings.  In the past weekend of violence, thugs shot fifty-one people and four killed (76 people shot during the entire week) and no one seems to care.  Business owners boarded up their storefronts, residents fled to other states, and the duplicitous Democrats seem not to care.  Meanwhile, over the weekend, gangbanging ruffians shot sixty-four people and killed at least five in Chicago.  The time is NOW to charge these Blue State governors and Blue City mayors with DERELICTION OF DUTY.  They must face federal charges and prison time for their criminal neglect and felonious mismanagement of their locales.  Elsewhere, Nancy Pelosi calls for Congress to reconvene to pass an emergency bill to fund the USPS but not to help the tens of millions of Americans affected by the Chinese Bat Flu Virus.  Shame on her!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump- on the way out to stump across America while the Democrats commence their national convention via Zoom and Skype authorizes aid for Iowa, ravaged by violent storms over the previous week.    
  53. 2020 Monday A: Rush Limbaugh- on his radio show today- shared the news that many countries around the world are using hydroxychloroquine behind the scenes to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. He pointed out that the African nation of Uganda is a big-time user of hydroxychloroquine to fight endemic malaria. Here are their number of confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus: 1,500, 13 confirmed deaths, and 1,142 confirmed recoveries.  Leftist Democrats, what flipping more proof do you criminal scumbags require to know that Plaquenil is great for fighting this disease?  Enough is enough!  Give everyone hydroxychloroquine NOW!
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: At the Democratic Convention, here is the lineup for speakers for TONIGHT: former First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, Sen. Doug Jones, D-AL, Rep. Gwen Moore, D-WI, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-MS, Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-SC, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, D-MI, Gov. Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, D-NY, Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto, D-NV, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, former 2016 presidential candidate and Gov. John Kasich, OH, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman. What a lineup!  Interesting note: we heard through the grapevine that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is backing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat challenger- Shahid Buttar, another Democrat- in the November Elections.  Mr. Buttar is a Muslim lawyer, a person who graduated from Stanford Law School in 2003.  Boy, that takes some balls (for AOC, which is.  This is what Pelosi gets for giving the former Sandy Cortez 60 seconds to speak at the DNC Convention!  My-my!).
  55. 2020 Monday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 21,739,501 confirmed cases, +259,390, 776,241 confirmed deaths, +4,723, and 13,702,873 confirmed recoveries, +240,708.

  56. 2020 Monday D: COVID-19 Statistics next, 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: 628,031 confirmed cases, 11,242 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,042 confirmed cases, forty confirmed deaths, and 1,841 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 67,461 confirmed cases, 1,781 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  57. 2020 Monday E: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals- here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,844.91, DOWN 86.11 points (-0.31%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,129.73, UP 110.42 points (+1.00%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,381.99, UP 9.14 points (+0.27%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,993.70 per troy oz., DOWN -5.00 (-0.25%), SILVER is at $27.62 per troy oz., DOWN 0.052 (-0.19%), PLATINUM $968.90 per troy oz. UP +1.30 (+0.24%), and COPPER is at $2.91 # +0.007 (+0.24%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.81, DOWN -0.08 (-0.19%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.93 Chi-Com yuan.  In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  58. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 209,325,139 confirmed cases, +771,899, 4,393,412 confirmed deaths, +11,257 and 187,885,975 confirmed recoveries, +597,897. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 37,885,255 confirmed cases, UP 245,117 from yesterday’s reporting, 640,073 confirmed deaths, UP 1,918, [v] and 30,289,281 confirmed recoveries, UP 66,682.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vi]  
  59. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 321,316 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 82,762 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  60. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,159,868 confirmed cases, 64,733 confirmed deaths, and 2,204,051 confirmed recoveries.

Let us look at one other country- Barbados, 182nd country on the list: 4,581 cases of the virus, 48 confirmed deaths and 4,409 confirmed recoveries. [viii]     
  62. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: Thanks to Joe Biden being the WORST president in U.S. history- even worse than foreign-born Barack Hussein Obama and the ‘peanut farmer’- DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,343.28, DOWN 282.12 points (-0.79%). Next, the NASDAQ: 14,656.18, DOWN 137.58 points (-0.93%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,448.08, DOWN 31.63 points (-0.71%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.04 per barrel, +0.05 (+0.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,787.90 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $23.65 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $994.40 per troy oz, +1.30 (+0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.22 per pound, +0.02 (+0.37%).

[xii]        
  63. 2021 Tuesday 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 risen to $4.405 per gallon, $3.010 in Florida, $4.089 in Hawaii, and $3.904 in Washington state. [xiii] Let us look at one other location- Nevada: $4.062.  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- Cabo Verde: $5.363 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,652,985,232,767 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xv].  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 Taiwan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Hong Kong with $224 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.
  64. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The Navy SEAL who shot jihadist Osama bin Laden- Rob O’Neill- says that Joe Biden- aka the Antitrump- is a ‘disaster.’ “Doomed from the start”- so says a Special IG report- the plan of building a stable democracy in Afghanistan.  The Taliban, sounding like peaceniks promise peace in the country and women’s rights under the guiding light of a kind and loving (false) deity, Allah.  Sure, right, of course women are going to enjoy ‘rights.’  Meanwhile National Security Adviser to slobbering Joe Biden- Jake Sullivan- says the ‘Taliban has guaranteed the right of all those who wish to leave the country uncontested passage to the airport.’  The young adviser also says that the regime will ‘hold the Taliban accountable for any wrongdoing.’  Sure, Jake, sure.  He also made the astonishing claim that the regime planned for ‘all contingencies’ in withdrawing the military (even though they left thousands of Americans behind and thousands of fellow NATO troops).  The former ambassador to Kabul under President Barack Hussein Obama- a man who criticized President Donald J. Trump as much as he could- now says there are severe doubts as to the ‘mental fitness’ of the ‘commander in chief’ to hold the office he supposedly won on November 03, 2020.
  65. 2021 Tuesday 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. 147 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 53rd 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: $443,797,664.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $250,306,854,912.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,656,444.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,565,444.  (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).
  66. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– As things continue worsening in Afghanistan, the Taliban is going door to door seeking Western allies as well as compiling lists of girls and women aged 12 to 45 so the fatigued veterans of the Taliban army can marry them, settle down, and have families when they are not busy lopping off heads. However, be glad because the Biden regime is going to probe Afghan deaths at the Kabul airport, you know, the ones that fell to their deaths clinging to the landing gear.  These poor people were so afraid that they threw common sense to the winds and clung to the C-130 cargo jets.  Some managed to affix themselves to the aircraft but died at the elevation due to lack of oxygen while others plummeted thousands of feet to crash on the ground.
  67. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Joe Biden is extending the mask mandate for all travel in the U.S. via airplanes, buses, and railroads until 2022.  As COVID-19 cases surge in Florida, additional school districts are defying “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ order on NO masks in schools.
  68. 2021 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $50.42 (2) AstraZeneca $59.35 (3) Johnson & Johnson $179.47 (4) BioNTech $366.27 (5) Moderna $401.86. As we say, IF you desire to know the reason for the PUSH-PUSH-PUSH to get the vaccines and now with talk of everyone having to undergo a third round of this crap, all one must do is to follow the money.  Politicians invest in BIG PHARMA, they invest their money there because the recipients who suffer adverse reactions cannot sue the companies associated with vaccines, it is as if they have a ‘get-out-of-jail-free card’ when it comes to dealing with costly lawsuits.  Who would not want to put money into stocks such as these?  We sure the heck are putting more money into the stocks of pharmaceutical companies manufacturing Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.   IF the Chi-Coms continue releasing one variant after another, the vaccine companies will continue making new boosters which the U.S. government will buy with taxpayer dollars so they can distribute them “FREE” to all Americans and across the world.  The drug makers will then donate money back to the Democrats in the ongoing money-go-round.  Like union dues and donations to Democrats, this is a tried-and-true way with which the Dems and their RINO allies reap in the big bucks. 
  69. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden News I– Apparently, a reporter asked Joe Biden on his 2010 comments on America’s duty to defend the Afghan people. His reply to them now is “F— that.”  Well, there you go, Joe.  Oh, it is interesting to note that Joe Biden is back at Camp David, ostensibly on vacation but we know the ‘Manchurian Candidate’ is undergoing his weekly tune-up.  Without such tune-ups, he would be unable to speak coherently to anyone for longer than a minute or two.  
  70. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Biden regime continues its implosion, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘America’s enemies are laughing at the U.S. over its abject failure’ in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, says of Joe Biden that he does NOT deserve to remain in office.  The White House reports that (much like our botched withdrawal from Iraq) the Taliban has obtained loads of U.S. military hardware and equipment including drones and Blackhawk helicopters (so says Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district) and other equipment which we all know will be wending its way to communist China, Russia, and Iran for evaluation.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.   Meanwhile, as drought conditions worsen in the western states, governors in the region are pushing Joe Biden to declare a disaster so FEMA can activate and begin providing help.  Finally, the regime is hinting it is going to give the ‘cold shoulder’ to former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
  71. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– We learned today that Rep. Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and a ‘cancel rent’ advocate own numerous rental properties and collected rents from all of them. How come you did not cancel rents for your clients, “Chrome Dome?”
  72. 2021 Tuesday N: Big Tech News– Senator Marco Rubio is urging Joe Biden to ban TikTok following the Chi-Coms taking a major stake in the company.
  73. 2021 Tuesday O: New York State News– New Yorkers are growing angrier with both the mayor of the BIG APPLE and the soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov. First, 52-percent of New Yorkers want to see Governor Cuomo to face criminal charges while Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio faces lawsuits over his imposition of vaccine passports for all people seeking to dine indoors or to patronize other indoor businesses.  “No shot, no proof, no service” is the order of the day (unless, of course, you are a Christian baker and a couple of hardcore homos demand you bake them a ‘wedding cake’).  One shot won’t be enough, for a customer to partake of the ‘delights’ of New York City, a customer must be fully vaccinated and when boosters arrive, one must have proof of full vaccination.  Of course, this is not going over well with residents of the Big Apple- especially black, brown, and other minorities who view the government with suspicion and the lawsuits slamming into “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio are CIVIL RIGHTS lawsuits.  You see, “Killer” Cuomo and “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio through their harsh orders are turning blacks, browns, and others into second-class citizens.
  74. 2021 Tuesday P: Texas State News– Fully-vaccinated Lone Star State Governor Greg Abbot, GOP, tested positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu although he is asymptomatic and will undergo self-imposed quarantine for 1-2 weeks. Meanwhile, the state government is calling for mortuary trailers for dispatch to the southern border amid the illegal alien-caused growing COVID-19 crisis befalling the state.   
  75. 2021 Tuesday Q: Sports News I– The comeback of Tim Tebow ends as the Jacksonville Jaguars cut him loose. In other sports news, NFL great quarterback Brett Favre says parents should not permit their kids to play tackle football until age 14.
  76. 2021 Tuesday R: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1686 what with a $242 million jackpot on the line: 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24. 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24.  Stick around and discover the winners… Out of 97,147 winning tickets, the highest winners were 67 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $408 apiece.
  77. 2021 Tuesday S: Amigos, I am afraid that the Antitrump is leaving Americans behind in Afghanistan while flying jihadis interlaced with Afghan refugees into the U.S. to conduct terror attacks, attacks the bogus regime will lay at the feet of WHITE SUPREMACISTS. Once they tar and feather white folks with whatever jihadist attacks occur here, instead of going after the Islamists themselves, they will go after white people like Hitler and the Nazis went after the Jews.  Most all of us agree that the people behind Joe Biden are using white people as their ‘Jews,’ isolate and attack them all the while turning the country into a Third World pisser.  Look, I am a Latino- “America’s favorite Cholo”- and I don’t want the country overrun with millions of Third World riffraff.  Unlike many, I am not afraid to say this, in fact, I will boldly proclaim it.  Joe has got to go; President Trump must return to the White House now.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.
  78. 2022 Wednesday: Looks like Liz Cheney went down in smoking defeat.  Good.  The sooner these ‘Republocrats’ are vanquished, the sooner we can reclaim America and restore law and order.  Oh, the RINOs are crying, oh, the Democrats sniveling, but they did not turn out to save her sorry ass as she was begging them.           Let me say something about Alaska’s election system, the ‘ranked choice voting.’  What a bunch of bullshit, much like California’s corrupt ‘top two vote-getters’ facing off in the general.  Anything that is not one U.S. citizen one vote is bogus, corrupt, and must go.  We must vote on Election Day.  Paper ballots.  NO skullduggery.  Absentee ballots must come postmarked no later than Election Day.  I mean, does the IRS allow 2, 3, 4, or more weeks for returns to come in past April 15?  Nope. Besides- as in California thanks to our corrupt system- the American Independent Party, the Libertarian Party, the Peace and Freedom Party, and the Green Party are NEVER on the general election ballot.  Why aren’t they launching all sorts of lawsuits and taking this crap up to the U.S. Supreme Court and getting this corrupt, Democrat-favoring system tossed on the garbage heap?  I’m telling you.  Let us know what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0925 a 24” x 36” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “The Posse.”  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, giclees, 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.

221. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, AUGUST 09, 2022

2020 Sunday C: In Chicago, after false reports of the Chicago PD executing a young black man in the streets, mobs rush out and begin attacking upscale stores and neighborhoods along the ‘Magnificent Mile,’ beating, burning, rioting, and looting like a bunch of lunatics. The following day, Mayor Lori Lightfoot would berate her citizens but what does it matter? Nothing changes.

  54. 2020 Sunday B: People still await the VP pick of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  We hope to hear it soon but speculation abounds about two things: is it possible that whomever the former VP chooses to be his number two will be such a bottom-level loser such as Stacey Abrams or Gretchen Whitmer because no one of substance wishes to be on a doomed ticket or could what Chef Cheryl will write about in tomorrow’s blog post- Monday, August 10, 2020- could we see a NEW Obama-Biden ticket, one in which, Michelle Obama will be at the top and Dr. Jill Biden at the bottom?  Think about it.  Be sure to read tomorrow’s blog post.
  55. 2020 Sunday C: In Chicago, after false reports of the Chicago PD executing a young black man in the streets, mobs rush out and begin attacking upscale stores and neighborhoods along the ‘Magnificent Mile,’ beating, burning, rioting, and looting like a bunch of lunatics.  The following day, Mayor Lori Lightfoot would berate her citizens but what does it matter?  Nothing changes.  Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., a mass shooting occurs between black citizens leaving one dead and another twenty injured in varying degrees.  Mainstream media remained mum on both incidents, but Tucker Carlson at Fox News had the balls to both report it the following day and show video of the incidents.  Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon, rioting lunatics assault an elderly woman simply because she forgot to wear her mask in public.  Time to start whacking and stacking, folks.  Gun sales continue going UP!
  56. 2020 Sunday D: Speaking of guns, a tragedy occurs in Wilson, North Carolina, as a man named Darius Sessoms, 25-years-old, walked across their street and shot his five-year-old neighbor, Cannon Hinnant, in the head as he rode his bicycle in front of his home.  The child was white while the shooter was black.  Sadly, the news media has done its best to let this story go unreported.  Go figure.  Police are investigating but said the ‘shooting was not random.’  
  57. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 204,098,545 confirmed cases, +654,388, 4,315,487 confirmed deaths, +8,100 and 183,276,380 confirmed recoveries, +534,294.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,780,461 confirmed cases, UP 237,123 from yesterday’s reporting, 633,798 confirmed deaths, UP 337, [iii] and 29,922,841 confirmed recoveries, UP 63,779.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [iv]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 315,011 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 89,067 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[x]        
  62. 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 $4.390 per gallon, $3.022 in Florida, $4.083 in Hawaii, and $3.873 in Washington state. [xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.792.  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- Bosnia and Herzegovina: $5.078 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,618,816,777,129 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiii]  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 the Chi-Coms, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom with $440 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.
  63. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As you know, the AICPENDBLOG.COM tracks the movements of our ‘Johnny on the spot’ ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  By our count, today is her 139th day overseeing the U.S.-Mexico border and her 45th day since he sole visit to quietest part of the border, the El Paso Sector.  When will she begin doing the job to which senile Joe Biden appointed her to do? [xiv]   Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $507,711,936.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $241,603,657,728.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,476,244.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,476,244. [xv]  (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.  The Western Roman Empire imploded because of its (1) inability to control its borders (2) endless wars (3) constant political strife and intrigue and (4) normalizing aberrant behavior such as homosexuality, pedophilia, and other forms of immoral perversion.  The collapse of the Western Roman Empire led to 1,000 years of Darkness, the Dark Ages.  We must save our country and the Western World by stopping the barbarians).
  64. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As things along the southern border continue getting out of hand along the border and across the country, the Biden regime is taking increased heat as to its lack of transparency as to where they are dumping the more than two million illegal aliens around the country.  Sadly, critics such as Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, are facing pushback from progressives that want NO separation with their crazy border policies and legitimate concern over the border invasion.
  65. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett calls on Lebanon to take ‘responsibility’ for the rocket fire coming out of the southern part of their country and into Israel.  We know Hezbollah is the one firing the missiles which is why the civilized world must exterminate the Untermensch.  In other news, eight hundred mixed Israeli and Palestinian families are calling for unification following the lapse of a law.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is preparing to slap Belarus with a new round of sanctions.   Finally, Israel’s diaspora President Nachman Shai says that ‘IF we lose the United States, things are going to get bad for the Jewish people.’  
  66. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Centers for Disease Control are urging Americans NOT to travel to Israel, France, or Thailand due to increasing COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, Australian troops are going door to door Downunder to make sure that EVERYONE is home and is not out violating the stay-at-home orders.  WTF?  Concerned citizens are warning the same BS could soon come to American shores. 
  67. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the Biden regime continues the drumbeat that ‘everyone must be vaccinated, everyone must be vaccinated (or face ostracization from society’), the Centers for Disease Control claims there’s ‘limited evidence that people recovered from the Xi Jinping Bat Flu require vaccinations or that antibodies protect them from ALL variants.’  Speaking of Xi Jinping, noted author Gordon Chang says that ‘Xi’s actions show the deliberate spread of COVID-19 across the world.’  Elsewhere, the dean of the Brown University of Public Health- Dr. Ashish Jha- says that ‘people must try to understand vaccine-hesitant Americans rather than vilifying them.’  Dr. Scott Gottlieb says ‘leave COVID-19 response up to local communities rather than issuing blanket rulings.’  Finally, Christian Whiton says that ‘IF the lab leak theory is proven true, the Chi-Coms owe the world $35 trillion in damages and lost lives.’  Amen.
  68. 2021 Monday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Democrats want a ‘permanent pandemic’ because they loathe giving up power and want to make people more dependent upon the federal government.   Next, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten is demanding vaccine mandates for ALL schools or else, she will not authorize the reopening of schools.  U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says the ‘nation stands at a fork in the road when it comes to vaccine and mask mandates and the reopening of schools.’  Meanwhile, the Pentagon is ordering that ALL active-duty personnel hold out his or her arms for a jab by September 15 or else.  (Note- could be loads of courts martial). 
  69. 2021 Monday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Former President Barack Hussein Obama continues taking heat for his sixtieth birthday party over the weekend due to NO precautions against COVID-19 (because leaked film shows it as such) while Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is blasting ONLY the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota while giving both Obama and the Lollapalooza Music Festival big passes.  Speaking of Obama’s birthday party, critics were slamming a New York Times reporter for seemingly giving the Obamas a pass because they are ‘sophisticated vaccinated people’ while the little people are nothing more than ignorant mopes.  Regarding the vaccines, pollster Frank Luntz says the ‘divide over vaccines is now a massive political chasm.’
  70. 2021 Monday M: Miscellaneous News I– Small towns across the United States are offering remote workers up to $20,000 to relocate to their towns.
  71. 2021 Monday N: Economic News– Job openings during July hit a record 10.1 million.  Sadly, way too many people are sitting at home, squirting out bastard children, smoking the crack pipe, breaking into their neighbors’ homes, or joining mobs when they should be either on the job or seeking one. 
  72. 2021 Monday O: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Freshly back from parental leave, Chicago Police Department Officer Ella French lost her life during a routine traffic stop after a punk she pulled over shot her in the face.  Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot blamed everyone and everything else instead of her failed policies for this tragic loss of life.  Calls continue growing for this pathetic POS governor, a person who could never find a man even if her life depended upon it to resign and to do so now.  Law enforcement turned their backs on this corrupt mayor.  Speaking of Chicago, in a 10-hour span over the weekend, criminals shot seventy-three people killing eleven of them.  William Kelly told Newsmax that ‘Frog-Face’s’ comments on the shooting of Officer French were despicable.  Officer French was the first Windy City officer killed since 1987.  Finally, Cleveland, Ohio, activists are pressing for the formation of the toughest police department oversight committee in the entire nation.  NOT good.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Human-Caused Disaster News– Report: apparently, the condominium that collapsed in Surfside, Florida was not built to code.  However, the age of the building, who were the original builders, the Trafficante Mob?  Good luck with getting restitution out of them.
  74. 2021 Monday Q: Natural Disasters News– The Dixie Fire is the largest wildfire in California history what with the destruction of more than 463,000 acres, the leveling of the historic mining town of Greenville, and at least eight people missing, five of them from Greenville.  This crap occurs every summer and fall in California and it is because Democrat control has done nothing about maintaining the forests, building new water infrastructure (in fact, they are tearing down dams), or working with PG&E to help them put transmission lines underground instead of forcing them to go ‘GREEN’ within the next few years.  Shame on them.
  75. 2021 Monday R: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Government has bestowed upon a Harvard professor $1.8 million to study UFOs.  Sounds like the money-go-round to us, folks.
  76. 2021 Monday S: Fake News I– We learned today that CNN’s Chris “Fraido” Cuomo has been barred by management from discussing the problems of his perverted brother, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov,” after already advising big brother on how to combat the calls for his resignation from office.
  77. 2021 Monday T: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is calling on the Biden regime to restart construction on the southern border wall.  We seriously doubt that enfeebled old Joe Biden will pay any heed to this sage advice.  Meanwhile, as the Dems continue the back-slapping glee over forcing through the ‘infrastructure bill’ to the floor for a full vote, President Trump slams the Trojan horse of a bill as being the beginning of the “Green New Deal,” a fascist takeover of the country by the Democrats hidden by the disguise of impending doom via Climate Change, Global Warming, and Extreme Weather.  Amen, Mr. President, amen.  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says of the Dems’ $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill that it is a ‘gateway to socialism.’
  78. 2021 Monday U: New York State News– Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat from upstate New York, is preparing to become governor if current office-holder Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov resigns over his growing scandals or either through impeachment or via arrest for the crimes of which he has been accused removes the cretin from office,   Here are the names of the eleven women accusing him of wrongdoing: (1) Lindsey Boylan (2) Charlotte Bennett (3) Ana Liss (4) Alyssa McGrath (5) Anna Ruch (6) Karen Hinton (7) Virginia Limmiatis (8) Jessica Bakeman (9) Sherry Vill (10) Valerie Bauman and (11) Brittany Commisso[xvi].  (Note- one thing that jumps out at us at the AICPENDBLOG.COM is that Governor “Killer” Cuomo must be a racist because all these women are WHITE.  Wow.  Regarding Cuomo, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘it’s over for Cuomo as he’s NO Bill Clinton.’
  79. 2021 Monday V: Texas State News– Crybaby sniveling fugitive Democrats from the Lone Star State are suing Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, for having ‘forced them to flee the state so they could not do their jobs.’  Talk about deflection.  Still, a Texas judge blocked the dragnet Austin planned to launch against these recalcitrant, wayward scumbags who fled more than a month ago via private jets with plenty of light beer with which to numb their fears to hide out in Washington, D.C.  One of them- a Madea-look-alike- had the nerve to sign “We shall overcome” upon first arriving in the District of Columbia.  The judge said that going after these brave Democrats would violate their civil rights. [xvii]
  80. 2021 Monday W: The Wrap-Up– Let me leave you with a closing thought or two…IF we do not fight back with everything in our wheelhouse against the crap the Democrats are trying to force down our throats, we will lose our God-given freedoms for a long, long time.  Most countries are able to break free eventually but if we are to use the rat-eating Chi-Coms, the Cubans, and the North Koreans as an example, if there is one thing these criminal regimes have learned is that the worse the oppression, the more difficult it is to break free.  Look at the Chi-Coms and the North Koreans’ concentration camps, horrible places where entire generations live out their lives.  Look, it is US, or it is THEM and as long as freedom flows through our veins, we must resist the Democrats with every ounce of fiber God has instilled in us.  We are strong, there are more of us than there are of them and if the RINO Republicans would stop act like kapos working for the Nazis, we might be able to stymie the scum.  We also must join forces to help our beleaguered border guards.  Otherwise, we could soon see Chi-Com troops patrolling our streets at the request of the Democratic-Socialists.  Thanks for joining us today, we will meet up again tomorrow.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  81. 2022 Tuesday: Friends, I knew I did something right when I switched parties several years ago (did so on November 08, 2018)- we were still writing at Google Blogger- because after what we saw yesterday at Mar-a-Lago in conservative Florida, there is NO way in hell I could remain a Democrat, even if my lovely wife swore to cut me off if I left.  Look, what more excuse does one need to add new firearms to the DARK gun cabinet than seeing the Joestapo raid Mar-a-Lago?  Why would I not want to scoop up some new shotguns and handguns after learning the IRS is going to add another 87,000 agents to their employment rolls?  I had other things I wanted to say today but friends, the raid on Mar-a-Lago demonstrates that our country is embarking down a new and desolate path into authoritarianism.  I hope to God we reclaim our country over the course of the subsequent two election cycles as if we don’t, well, it’s going to be time to move down to the D.R. and enjoy retirement.  Let us know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht- America’s favorite German chef.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Everyone knows George and Ira Gershwin were musical geniuses, people that gave the world some of the greatest music ever heard.  Thus, we have another genius- Brian Wilson- who dove in headfirst for his next studio album and thus we have it: “Brian Wilson reimagines Gershwin,” released on August 17, 2010.  Whether you love George and Ira or you don’t, this is an important album that everyone should add to their growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved CDs because it is one for the ages.  Once again, Wilson is joined by some of the best musicians available which is why we promote this one as loudly as we do.  Seek it out and add it to your collection you will be glad you did.

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

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

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

[v] 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, such as Bob Welch.  We thank you.

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

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

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

[xxi] There are NO FREE LUNCHES in the Golden State when Democrats run the show.

  61. 2020 Sunday: What the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes to be Communist China-well-funded and Democratic Party well-orchestrated and coordinated riots continue occurring in cities across the country, big and small.  The time is NOW for the government to regain control of the cities by putting the military into the streets.  Time to tell the People’s Republic of China that NEUTRON BOMBS will soon be on the way.  Is this the ‘second revolution?’ Will we throw this scum back or will we allow them to topple our government and then aid Beijing to control the world?  President Trump has said that ANTIFA is a domestic terrorist organization which we have said for several years now.  Time to crush the scumbags.
  62. 2020 Sunday A: Communist China’s gift to the world, COVID-19 continues causing problems, but you would not know it what with everyone out in the streets rioting, looting, burning, and killing.  Here are the global statistics for today: 6,152,160 confirmed cases, 371,700 confirmed deaths, and 2,637,496 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you, Comrade Xi!

  64. 2020 Sunday C: The city of Chicago experiences its worst day for homicides in 60 years what with 18 people being shot and killed in a single day.  What is wrong with the Windy City?  Why won’t liberal loony Mayor Lori Lightfoot step up and do the job the voters elected her to do?  The woman is a loser and must go via a recall election.  NOW!

  71. 2021 Monday Memorial Day F: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information–  Yesterday- and it must have been painful for him to say it- ABC’s Jon Karl said that ‘even if President Donald J. Trump says it does not mean it’s a lie.’  He was referring to President Trump placing the blame for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu squarely where it lays- on the Chi-Coms in general and the Wuhan Institute of Virology in particular.   Next, a California café owner has initiated a fee for anyone choosing to wear a mask in the establishment.   Moving on, the Biden regime is sending one million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to our South Korean allies.  Finally, the World Health Organization is studying reforms with which to strengthen the organization- cut the Chi-Coms out of it, that will work wonders.
  72. 2021 Monday Memorial Day G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Joe Biden is naming Caroline Kennedy to become U.S. ambassador to Australia.  (Note- better than Rahm Emanuel).  Next, U.S. intel reports that two Iranian vessels may be bound for Venezuela, a country where they are not supposed to visit.   Meanwhile, a former U.S. Marine is being sought by the Spanish government over his breaking into the North Korean embassy.  The Biden administration is weighing sending him to the Spaniards who may then send him to North Korea.  Speaking of North Korea, their government is slamming Joe Biden’s lifting of missile development restrictions on South Korea as being ‘hostile U.S. policy.’  Finally, Israeli Defense Forces head Benny Gantz is fearful over the possibility of assassination or civil war breaking out over the possible end of Benjamin Netanyahu’s time as head of state.
  73. 2021 Monday Memorial Day H: Political News I– Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, has created a new website for whistleblowers in the U.S. military to expose the WOKE bull crap occurring within their ranks.  Next, following a walk-out by the Democrats at the state house in Texas, Governor Greg Abbott, GOP, is going to halt their paychecks.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sparks 2024 rumors what with a trip to Iowa.   In other utterly disturbing news, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, has vetoed 22 bills including election security and anti-Critical Race Theory bills.  And you had questions about this loser being a RINO…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following “Sunflower,” the next Beach Boys album is “Surf’s Up,” an album that came out on August 30, 1971.  This is a phenomenal record, one that features every band member contributing lead vocals with the exception of Dennis.  The album features the same lineup as the preceding one: Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  The album is excellent all the way through with the exception of one peculiar track which we will get to.  The album opens with “Don’t Go Near the Water” sung by Mike, Al, and Brian followed by one of Carl Wilson’s all-time greatest, “Long Promised Road,” followed by “Take a Load off Your Feet” sung by Brian and Al followed by one of Bruce Johnston’s best, “Disney Girls 1957.”  Closing side one out is a remake of an old Lieber and Stoller song, “Riot in Cell Block Number 9” only done as “Student Demonstration Time” sung by Mike Love.  Side two opens with another Carl Wilson classic, “Feel Flows” followed by “Lookin’ at Tomorrow (A Welfare Song)” sung by Al followed by the extremely strange “A Day in the Life of a Tree” sung by two of Brian’s lyricists and Al.  Take this one for what you will.  The final two songs, “Til’ I Die” sung by Carl, Brian, and Mike is absolutely stunning followed by the final cut, one from Brian’s ‘Smile’ project, “Surf’s Up,” sung by Carl, Brian, and Al.  Absolutely amazing from start almost to the finish which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and to make it a part of your daily listening rotation.   You will be glad you did.

  59. 2020 Saturday A: Protests continue around the nation over the death of George Floyd this past Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The night before, extremely violent protests left many cities little more than moonscapes with stores burnt down, the husks of cars littering the streets.  As day progressed, more and more protesters and rioters returned to the streets and began going at it again.  There can be NO question that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party via funding and resources because the level of coordination for the conflagrations around the country is beyond most liberal losers to pull off on their own.  We believe that President Trump must rebuff Beijing every day and tell them, “YOU aren’t getting away with this!”  Free Hong Kong!  Free Taiwan!  Free Macau!  Free Tibet!  Now, for the Wuhan Bat Flu statistics.  Here we go:
  60. 2020 Saturday B: The Chinese Virus continues flowing around the world but with the protests raging in the streets of America, no one seems much concerned.  Many aren’t wearing masks.  Here are the global stats for today: 6,054,187 confirmed cases, 368,711 confirmed deaths, but 2,562,191 confirmed recoveries which far outpaces the number of deaths.  Excellent.  Here are the stats for the United States: 1,805,745 confirmed cases, 105,159 confirmed deaths, but 390,404 confirmed recoveries which would be much higher if Blue State governors were honest and would share those numbers.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 108,878 confirmed cases, 4,060 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION yet again of confirmed recoveries.  Governor Gavin Newsom, get with it and share those numbers, you worthless POS.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 604 confirmed recoveries which is extremely good.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 21,288 confirmed cases, 1,118 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Gov. Jay Inslee plays the same brand of deceptive liberal politics and won’t share honest statistics.  Shame on him!  Shame on Gov. Newsom!  Recall BOTH of them.

Currently, Joe is shy 168,011 deaths

  67. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, this is Day #69 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the “Laughing Hyena,” to be in charge of the southern border and not to have visited it.  Her ‘vice presidential’ salary is being well-spent as you can see.
  68. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– It looks like the Israelis are going to do to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu what the British people did to Prime Minister Winston Churchill at the end of World War II after he saved the UK like Netanyahu has Israel- countless time- vote him out and move on.  Netanyahu has saved Israel countless times and now that he has and the Palestinians have lit them up with more than 4,000 rockets, it appears the liberals in Israel are going to boot him and suck up to Gaza Strip and to Iran in a roundabout way,  Wow. At least Bill Maher is defending Israel unlike the rest of American liberals.  In other foreign and overseas news, news reports say that Mexican drug cartels are hunting Mexican law enforcement officers in their homes.  It sounds like Mexico- if it wants to remain a sovereign nation instead of an Afghanistan-like s**thole, they had better mobilize their military and start cleaning out this nest of vipers.
  69. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit continues even without the help of Democrats within the state who seem to be intent at keeping it under wraps rather than jumping in with both feet to demonstrate there was NO funny business.  The auditors are hand-counting 1 million ballots.  God bless them for doing what is RIGHT.  
  70. 2021 Sunday I: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In the era of ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden, last night/early this morning in Miami-Dade County in Florida, a gunman assaulted a concert, shot two dead, and wounded another 20.  In this era of gun control, amazing at h
