213. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 01, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts? Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go. Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.

  67. 2015 Saturday: After Puerto Rican Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla warned creditors the previous June that if its debt did not undergo restructuring to keep the commonwealth afloat, Puerto Rico fails to make a $58 billion payment on bonds issued by the Public Finance Corporation.  In other news, Palestinian riffraff have been causing trouble for the Israelis who after the scumbags murder an innocent wee babe in his crib by setting him on fire leads Israeli Defense Forces to take the fight to the human garbage.  At least two Palestinian 17-year-olds are killed in the resulting fray.

  69. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms the Honorable Christopher A. Wray the next head of the FBI, thus ending the era of the corrupt James Comey.  Elsewhere, in Herat, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again when a bomb blast at the Jawadia Shia Mosque kills at least 30 and injures and maims countless others.  Got to love the religion!  Next, famed keyboardist with the rock band, Steppenwolf- Goldy McJohn- died in Seattle, Washington, on this date from a heart attack; he was 72 years old.

Trump announces via a tweet that starting September 1, 2019, the U.S. is going to slap a 10-percent tariff on $300 billion of Chi-Com exports.  Good.  The SOBs have been raping the United States for a long, long time.  Time to make those bloodsuckers pay.
  72. 2020 Saturday: Florida is bracing today for incoming Hurricane Isaias.  Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans are working hard to craft a new Chinese Virus relief package.  The Democrats want to continue giving unemployed Americans $600 atop their state unemployment checks while the GOP wants to slash the additional funding to $200 atop the weekly state unemployment checks.  The GOP wants workers to return to work while the Democrats seek to keep them at home, dependent upon federal government until well after the November elections.  Democrats seek to topple the U.S. economy as only then can uber-leftists force Marxism down the throats of the American people.  Finally, BOTH Democrats and Republicans slam President Donald J. Trump for seeking to remove U.S. troops from Germany and redeploy them farther east to countries such as Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, as well as bring some of them home.  Very few NATO member countries fail to pay their annual 2-percent dues.   As for the most prosperous nation in Western Europe and a linchpin of the alliance: Germany wants U.S. troops to protect them from Russia, yet Angela Merkel makes energy deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas pipelines coming directly into her country.  This is bulls**t! 
  73. 2020 Saturday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 17,594,541 confirmed cases, UP 273,147, 679,439 confirmed deaths, UP 5,617, and 10,333,166 confirmed recoveries, UP 178,140.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,686,214 confirmed cases, UP 61,034 new cases, 156,370 confirmed deaths, UP 1,124, and 2,293,228 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,254.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,243 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 112,936 while the number of deaths is 13,588.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Tom Wolf is little more than a hardcore political hack.

Currently, Joe is shy 93,140 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[viii]

[ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.816.  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- Jamaica: $4.711 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,591,181,135,271 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  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 United Arab Emirates, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 131 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the horrendous humanitarian disaster along the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.  It’s also her 37th day since her one and only visit to the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.   When we say ‘nothing,’ we mean, “NOTHING.”  It is time she laid down her duties- not that she ever picked them up- and returned home to spend more time with her family.  Adios.  Customs and Border Protection officials report that in the month of June, the authorities caught 190,000 illegals which means many, many more were able to have beaten the dragnet.   Speaking of CBP, former acting commissioner of the organization- Mark Morgan- calls out the hypocrisy of both Joe Biden and the Democrats over their stoppage of the border wall construction- ‘it would be cheaper to complete the wall rather than care for all of these frigging illegal aliens.’
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the horrendous ongoing mess along the southern border, here are the numbers reported by One America News for this disgusting disaster we have no choice but to watch.  It affects all of us, it harms all of us, and it will eat away at the guts of the country until everything implodes.  First, here is the COST THIS DAY of caring for all the frigging illegal aliens: $583,016,384.   Second, here is the COST THIS YEAR: $232,911,831,040.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens estimated to have crossed the border this year: 2,387,159.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals believed to be within the United States: 36,387,160.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- if you have read our blog site for any length of time, then you know we estimated as far back as 2009 when we first began being the voice of the culinary worker and professional chef that back then, we believed the number to be between 35-to-50 million whereas now, we suspect the honest-to-God number is closer to 75-100 million which means we have the seeds of our own demise residing within our country.  DEPORT THEM NOW no matter the difficulty or the cost.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– While sending Cubans back to their communist hellhole, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says that at least 100,000 Haitians will be provided work permits so they can work (and vote) in the U.S. without fear.  Elsewhere, seizures of fentanyl along the southern border are up by as much as 4,000-percent.  CBP officials report the drug comes from labs in Mexico supplied by the Chi-Coms and that it is used in cocaine, heroin, and in pill presses to create fake oxycontin and other pharmaceutical prescribed drugs being used by Americans.  Deaths are going way up once again now that President Donald J. Trump is not in the White House.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Former Iranian thug President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that while HE was president, the government lied for EIGHT years about its countless human rights abuses and violations.  Mahmoud, everyone knows that.  Iranian leaders are ALL liars.  Elsewhere, the government of Myanmar has extended its ‘state of emergency’ with the leader of the coup proclaimed the prime minister.  Meanwhile, the war in Afghanistan continues to rage what with the cities of Herat, Lashkar Gah, and Kandahar being attacked and overwhelmed in some places.  In the western portion of the country, the Taliban has attacked a United Nations compound.
  85. 2021 Sunday J:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As drooling Joe Biden continues trying to discern ways by which he can coerce the American people into taking the Kung Flu vaccines, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, says ‘nope’ to offering $100 incentives to entice her citizens into getting the shots.  (Note- we suspect they could jack it up to $1,000 per jab and people would still say, “HELL, NO, we are not getting this duck dreck”).  Meanwhile, CNN ‘health expert’ John Berman puts the blame for the ongoing ‘pandemic’ onto the shoulders of the unvaccinated while totally ignoring the wide-open borders and the hundreds of thousands of infected illegals pouring across into the United States.  Good try, Mr. Berman, but it’s all bullshit.  This dimwit also says that Joe Biden declared victory ‘way too early.’ 
  86. 2021 Sunday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Two countries- Thailand and Indonesia- are pushing away from using Chi-Com vaccines, finding fault with how they are manufactured and the myriad side effects they cause the recipients.  (Note- NO one should use any vaccine from either the Chi-Coms or the Russians.  Both are f**ked up countries).   Elsewhere, a new poll says that only 45-percent of the American people are concerned about getting the Chi-Vi while 13-percent- hardcore liberals- wet their beds at night in terror of contracting it.   What’s more, Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths and hospitalizations are at record lows.  Yes, the Delta variant of the Chi-Com flu is much more contagious- like the common cold- but much less lethal.  Also let’s not forget that about one week ago today, the Dems were beginning to drive up the fears of the Lambda variant but then abruptly yanked that one back for use at a later date.  Delta comes from India while Lambda comes from Peru. 
  87. 2021 Sunday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Fox News host Judge Janine Pirro says that the government is setting up for future COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions- especially going into 2022 so the Dems and their RINO sycophants can replicate the elections theft they perfected in conjunction with the Chi-Coms in 2020.  Judge Pirro points out that the LEFT is the science deniers.  She also asked what the ‘endgame’ in this horrible scheme is? In other Chi-Vi news, the Centers for Disease Control is paying the National Football League’s Alumni Association $3.5 million to get retired players to coerce current players into taking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines even though they have no desire to do it.  Next, in two San Francisco, California, hospitals, 233 breakthrough cases among fully vaccinated staff have occurred with at least TWO of them hospitalized.  Finally, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, R, is blasting health officials for exaggerating COVID-19’s danger via their frightening hyperbole.
  88. 2021 Sunday M: Political News I– The ‘mask mandate’ imposed by nonagenarian U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is not only unpopular with most Republicans, but  also becoming increasingly unpopular with many Democrats as well- so says the polls.  Speaking of mask mandates, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser like many other Democrats- including “Mumbles” Pelosi and her corpulent sidekick, Rep. Jerrold “Tub-of-Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th CD, all have been captured wandering around sans masks.  Next, Democrats are fretting over the fact that millions of Americans could soon be homeless once the moratorium on evictions vanishes but here’s the deal: most of the $45 billion earmarked for helping renters and mortgage holders keep current remains unused which means it’s resting peacefully in the pockets of Democrat and RINO politicians.   
  89. 2021 Sunday N: Political News II– We have been long hoping for this but it sounds like former Alaska GOP Governor Sarah Palin could return to politics and take a go at highly unpopular current Senator Lisa Murkowski in 2022.  We hope to God she runs and beats this Republican-in-name-only.  She would be an amazing addition to the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, says that ‘IF he gets the gavel in November 2022, he will launch investigations into drooling Joe Biden and extremely corrupt House Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi.   Speaking of moronic Democrats, the police chief of Charleston, South Carolina, Luther Reynolds, says that the Democrats’ Defund the Police scheme is blowing up in their faces.
  90. 2021 Sunday O: Business News– Amazon has been slammed with a $886 million fine over a recent data law breach.  Meanwhile, British-based bank Monzo Bank Ltd finds itself embroiled in a money-laundering mess.
  91. 2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts?  Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go.  Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.  I suspect that once liberal lunatics such as Joe f**king Biden seize power as his good buddy, Justin Trudeau has already done and others follow, the New World Order will be imposed on the global population with the Chi-Coms at the top.  This is evil, coordinated, and propaganda/fake news supported, and I fear if they find a way to force everyone to remain at home another election cycle, it will become a fait accompli.  Although Ukraine is being destroyed, it will be rebuilt once the world is starved into submission, the people driven into poverty, and freeze in the winters and broil in the summers, it will be too late.  Tell me what you think- Chef Hector.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0909 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Verbenas and Saguaros.”  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:

The next album by Beach Boys’ genius, Brian Wilson, is his first seasonal release: “What I Really Want for Christmas,” an album that came out on October 18, 2005.  The Beach Boys had a glorious Christmas album so it would make sense that Brian would do something similar and thus, here it is.  Besides doing some of his classic Beach Boys tunes such as “Little St. Nick” and “The Man with All the Toys,” he delivers some amazing covers of other, classic Yuletide tunes.  As always, he has a superb cast of supporting musicians with which to deliver a delightful holiday package.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure around the holidays.  You will be extremely glad you did- we guarantee it.

  57. 2004 Friday: Crazed Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr declares he will employ suicide bombers against U.S. troops should they make a move on his militias in the city of Najaf.  American and Coalition invaders are overrunning parts of the country in their quest for ‘weapons of mass destruction’ and then stamping out jihadis that the Shiites are preparing to begin lashing back at the so-called “Crusaders.”
  58. 2005 Saturday: At a checkpoint between Israel and the Gaza Strip, Israeli Defense Forces capture a 17-year-old Palestinian boy trying to smuggle four pipe bombs into Israel.

  61. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  62. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  63. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  64. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.
  65. 2012 Monday: The trial of former senator and vice-presidential candidate John Edwards for misuse of campaign funds gets underway in North Carolina.  Elsewhere, famed bassist Chris Ethridge who played with the Flying Burrito Brothers[xi] (1968-69 / 1974-76 / 1990-93)—among other bands—lost his battle with pancreatic carcinoma on this date.  He died in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi, at the age of 65.  Next, the Iranians are angry because a malware attack has hammered the National Iranian Oil Company.  Sucks to be you.  Finally, the White House is launching an investigation into its advance staff in the wake of the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
  66. 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
  67. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  68. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  69. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, which would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  70. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University, and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  71. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  72. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease, but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  73. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland. 
  74. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 144,804,485 confirmed cases, +799,197, 3,073,868  confirmed deaths, +11,781, and 83,220,681 confirmed recoveries, +650,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,717,457 confirmed cases, UP 48,336 from yesterday’s reporting, 584,839 confirmed deaths, UP 10,421, (figures include today’s and yesterday’s)[xii] and 119,056,391 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiii] 
  75. 2021 Friday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 260,967 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  76. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,727,713 confirmed cases, 61,261 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,196,502 confirmed cases, 34,759 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,977 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Idaho, one of the few sane places left in the country: they have 186,081 confirmed cases, 2,029 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]   
  77. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,892 confirmed cases, 6,346 confirmed deaths, and 829,424 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian nations on the globe: 247,989 cases of the virus, 3,496 confirmed deaths and 185,107 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    
  78. 2021 Friday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,043.49, UP 227.59 points (+0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,016.81, UP 198.40 points (+1.44%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,180.17, UP 45.19 points (+1.09%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.04 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,776.70 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.05 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,232.00 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.08%).[xvi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,855.15 per troy oz, +18.52 (+0.65%).[xvii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xviii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 107.91 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71.[xix]  
  79. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.981 per gallon, $2.802 in Florida, $3.760 in Hawaii, and $3.401 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $2.822.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,205,305,997,186 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  80. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.   Elsewhere, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, said that the illegal alien brats are in OBAMA-BIDEN CAGES and NOT Trump cages.  
  81. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden News I– Drooling Joe Biden found himself for being mocked as at his recent ‘climate summit’ with world leaders via ZOOM, he was the ONLY leader wearing a mask.  Ye gods, Joe, what the hell is wrong with you?  Dimwit.   Anyhow, when Joe concluded his summit, he said with gasping vigor, “We’re gonna do this.”  Big flipping deal, Joe.  Do it to yourself, NOT to us.  Next, totally whacked White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki crowed that ‘Joe Biden will be the first president to create 1,000,000 jobs in his first 100 days.’  Oh, please, stop it, we are laughing as hard as we can already.  Enough, dimwit!  Moving on, Joe Biden told Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he is going to call ‘the Armenian massacre a GENOCIDE.’  As it was, the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE the Ottoman Turks carried out against the Christian Armenian minority in their country during World War I.  (Note- it would appear that via this action, Joe is pushing yet another dictatorial nation into the Chi-Com-Russian-Iranian-North Korean-Cuban-Venezuelan camp for good.  Good going there, Joe).
  82. 2021 Friday H: Energy News / Infrastructure News– Much to the horror of liberals, 73-percent of Americans recently polled believe that fossil fuels and natural gas will be with us for decades to come.  Yes, people are interested in renewable energy but until it becomes cost effective and dependable, no one wants this crap.[xxii]  Meanwhile, a new report says that a new proposed gasoline tax is meeting with resistance on BOTH sides of the political aisle.   After the GOP put forth a sensible and less costly infrastructure bill and the left slapped it down, Senator Johnson said it’s all ‘partisanship and not concern for the American people.’  Speaking of infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., says that ‘Joe Biden should concentrate on CONVENTIONAL infrastructure’ and not this WOKE bulls**t.
  83. 2021 Friday I: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– Early today, Democrats began suing the state of Arizona for permitting the election integrity audit to begin and continue.  Later in the day, a judge called a temporary halt to the procedures for some inexplicable reason, but then permitted it to proceed late in the day.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that his team is advancing election integrity efforts across the country.  Elsewhere, New Hampshire passed SB 43 with which to carry out a forensic audit of the voting machines.  Citing the Windham Incident, in this one location, 1,143 ballots for Republicans were magically flipped over to Democrats.  These investigations are necessary.    
  84. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, RINO, is slamming the inclusion of Iran- perhaps one of the greatest persecutors of women and girls- onto the U.N. Status of Women Commission.  What a load of feculent crap to put a scumbag nation such as Iran on a global body such as the one mentioned above.   Meanwhile, following Tony Perkins- of Family Research Council fame- calling for a boycott on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chi-Coms now are trying to cancel him.  Permanently.    Elsewhere, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny is going to end his hunger strike.  Finally, Japan is declaring a state of emergency around Tokyo and three other areas due to surging numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  85. 2021 Friday K: Mass Shooting News / Law Enforcement News–  We learned that late last night in San  Diego, California, a mass shooting left one person dead and at least four injured.  We learned today that NBC once again rejiggered audio from the recent police shooting of Ma’ Khia Bryant who was in the act of stabbing another girl with an eight-inch blade.  As they did with George Zimmerman’s 911 call regarding Trayvon Martin, they edited and fabricated the police call so as to suit their narrative.  Folks, these lying scumbag networks should be fined and/or stripped of their broadcast licenses.   Meanwhile, Nicolas Cruz, the POS who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida back on February 14, 2018, in what we have dubbed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018- could go on trial for his life as early as this September.  (Note- we thought he had already copped to a deal).   Elsewhere, an alternate juror in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin says ‘yes, indeed, the mob intimidate us into finding the way we did.’  This verdict is going to get tossed.  Count on it.
  86. 2021 Friday L: Social Media And Stupid People News– After that big POS Los Angeles Lakers dimwit LeBron “Fecal Matter” James put up his most recent tweet about the cop who shot violent teen Ma’ Kia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, a few days ago, President Donald J. Trump says the turd should ‘focus on his NBA career rather than presiding over the destruction of the National Basketball League.’  LeBron James clearly learned nothing in school and worse, he is down on his knees in front of Xi Jinping doing the nasty for him every day.  C***sucker.  Speaking of LeBron and social media, millions are asking WHY Twitter banned President Donald J. Trump for ‘inciting violence’ while all the while permitting King James to make threats of his own via the platform?  Why?
  87. 2021 Friday M: COVID-19 News / Updates– Today, 33 colleges said that in order to return to classes in the next semester, ALL students will have to show proof they have been vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – with the help of Border Guru Stephen Miller- is suing the Biden administration over its hypocrisy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of illegals without testing them for the ‘VID while demanding states continue the bogus lockdowns the federal government imposes on them (if it can get away with doing it).  Moving on, the U.S. will now permit the use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations to proceed.  However, this comes on the heels of the CDC investigation yet another woman’s death- someone in her fifties- following vaccination for the Chi-Vi.
  88. 2021 Friday N: U.S. Government News– Ahead of their planned pull out, U.S. military is packing up its military hardware in Afghanistan while leaving non-military supplies such as office equipment and appliances behind for the Taliban to put to effective use.   In other truly embarrassing news, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, a true milquetoast if one ever existed, is going to permit U.S. diplomatic missions abroad to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag at the same level with the U.S. flag around the world.  Gee whiz, paint another target on our backs, will you?  Meanwhile, the Biden White House is nominating a ‘conservationist’- Tracy Stone-Manning- to lead the Public Lands Bureau.  Another left-wing loser to be sure.  Finally, SpaceX Dragon capsule blasted off today carrying FOUR American astronauts to the International Space Station.
  89. 2021 Friday O: January 06, 2021, Storming The Capitol / Capitol Hill Riots / False Flag Operations News– It appears that Capitol Hill law enforcement has grown fatigued by lying Democrats’ narratives on what happened on that fateful day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrated the ranks of Trump supporters and then set in motion the largest FALSE FLAG operation seen in the history of our country.  They are pushing back on recent claims by unnamed Democrats that they showed ‘bias towards the Trump supporters.’  They say they did not.   Elsewhere, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is demanding a FULL ACCOUNTING of the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick, someone whom we just learned died from natural causes and did not- we repeat, did NOT- have his head bashed in with a fire extinguisher as liberal fake news media and Democrat politicians have long claimed.   Tell us the truth.
  90. 2021 Friday P: State News–  Florida’s Supreme Court stopped a bid with which to legalize marijuana in the Sunshine State.  Good.  We have enough stupid people already.   Elsewhere, in California, Caitlyn Jenner makes it official- she is running for the governor’s job in the recall of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and some like that overweight, wig-wearing Joy Behar on “The View” are upset.  She was so upset, she kept using the wrong pronouns when speaking of Ms. Jenner which in the liberal WOKE world is a major faux pas.  Yet, liberals routinely get away with NOT doing as they say everyone else should be doing.  What a farce.  Next, in New York City late last night/early this morning, did their best to deface a monument in Central Park, one built to commemorate the loss of 260 U.S. Navy sailors who were killed when the battleship USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, Cuba, on February 15, 1898, the main event that propelled the U.S. into war with Spain.  Police arrested some of the rioters, but we are sure they left the slammer within hours of their arrest.
  91. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new study on elected officials who are the child of elected officials says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, vote to the LEFT of their parents when they were in office.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, said he ‘endorses Senators Murkowski and her RINO buddy, Susan Collins, of Maine.   Next, survivors of the Steve Scalise shooting criticize yesterday’s findings by the FBI that James Hodgkinson who shot up the Republican team preparing for the annual House baseball game back on June 14, 2017, did so because he wanted to die by suicide by cop.  This was the FBI finding we received yesterday and all we can say is that FBI Director Christopher Wray is full of fecal matter.
  92. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that New York state’s planned payments of $15,000 or more to illegal aliens is ‘unacceptable.’  It’s unacceptable when Americans need help, require salvation from all the Chi-Com Virus lockdowns and restrictions, and liberal left-wing government would rather care for INVADERS than for its own people.   Next, Kimberly Guilfoyle endorses former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens in his U.S. Senate bid.   Moving on, Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, vetoed a bill limiting gun restrictions.  He vetoed a bill that LIMITS restrictions on guns in the Natural State, for Christ’s Sake.   The man has demonstrated he is little more than a RINO.
  93. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Apparently, the President Trump 2020 Campaign left an unpaid view in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a $211,000 bill, one they are sending to collections.  Sounds like bull crap but then- we know how it is.  Speaking of President Trump, he may be leaving Florida to spend the summer at his New Jersey golf club.   Speaking of Florida, the okays a bill banning abortions based on disability.  Meanwhile, we learn that the United States Postal Service- the USPS, for Christ’s Holy Sake!- is now doing dirty work for the Biden regime by spying on conservative Americans.  Man, they must have amassed a humongous dossier on the AICPENDBLOG.COM by now.  What the hell is the postal service doing behaving like the Gestapo?  Has Stamps.com hurt them this much that they must take on jobs that have NOTHING to do with their daytime jobs?
  94. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News I– After a violent summer last year in \Minneapolis, Minnesota, BLACK-OWNED businesses in the city say the ‘city has abandoned them.’  These poor people watched Black Lives Matter and Antifa and all the hateful white punks (especially the banshees) screaming and rioting, looting, robbing, raping, and burning, and the damned Twin Cities need to do something to get them back on their feet!  What the hell does it take?  Where the hell is Patrice Cullors and all her millions of dollars?  Where is Joe Biden?  HELP these people.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post was slammed earlier today for their disgraceful ‘fact-checking’ on Senator Tim Scott’s ‘from the cotton fields to Congress’ statement awhile back.  Leftists are scumbags, what more can one say?  In other whack-job news, Climate Czar John F. Kerry says that the administration is exploring a BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX that will slap additional taxes, i.e., tariffs, on nations with weaker climate policies.  Folks, it’s time to make up NICE with Russia or China and seek asylum.  These people are cray-cray.
  95. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1653: 04, 28, 29,30, 60, and Mega 25.  Stay tuned for news on the winners… Out of 111,596 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $14,862 apiece.

Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A.

  68. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Castle Music label compiled a ‘best of’ collection for Sandy Denny that came out on April 12, 2005: “Where the Time Goes- Sandy ‘67.”  The album features a collection of 18 glorious tracks running from her earliest days prior to her association with Fairport Convention, Fotheringay, and Fairport Convention again and prior to her final solo career.  Thus, you get lots of acoustic Sandy mostly alone but with others including a unique collaboration with the Strawbs, another folkie acoustical group from the UK.  We hope you will investigate this one for yourselves, give it a good listen, and then consider adding it to your growing collection of music from this devoted vocalist and songwriter.  You will be so glad you did.  Enjoy.

Trump takes a phone call with Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, the 7th president of the Republic of China, aka FREE CHINA.  Prior to the world throwing Taiwan under the bus back in the early 1970s by recognizing the Chi-Coms as the ONLY China, Taiwan was- and still is, in our eyes- the ONLY China.  If the world’s nations possessed a set of balls among them, Taiwan would still be in the U.N. and on the security council.  They were one of the original nations of the U.N.
  54. 2017 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump changed his story on why he fired Michael Flynn as his national security adviser, now suggesting that he knew at the time that Flynn had lied to the FBI about his contact with Russians- which was his job, what he was supposed to do.  Thanks to the Russian “Collusion” bull crap, the Democrats have done their best to hamper President Trump.  They will not win.  
  55. 2018 Sunday: At the G20 Summit in Argentina, the U.S. and communist China agree to a truce in the ongoing trade war between the two nations. Meanwhile, in Mexico, the nation swears in its first socialist president in decades, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, a man committed to allowing caravans of illegal aliens to pass through his country to the U.S. border.  To us, this is an act of war.
  56. 2019 Monday: Scurrilous House Democrats are considering whether or not to extend the impeachment inquiry against President Trump.  Originally, they want to impeach him over a phone call between the president and his counterpart in the Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelensky, earlier in the year in which, the president was seeking information on corruption between former Vice President Joe Biden and son, Hunter, all of which was caught on tape.  House Dems now are considering charging the president with ‘obstruction of justice’ charges as well as other high crimes and misdemeanors claiming President Trump was stymieing the investigation of special counsel Robert S. Mueller (who is incapable of doing anything seeing as how he is feeble) into “Trump-Russia collusion.”  Meanwhile, California Congressman Duncan Hunter, Republican, pleads guilty to corruption charges. 
  57. 2020 Wednesday: U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell continue trying to negotiate a COVID-19 deal for the American people seeking to release more than $138 billion in unused Cares Act funding but House Speaker Nancy “Mumble” Pelosi is the ONLY person standing in the way.  Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is urging the U.S. Supreme Court to hold an expedited hearing on the rampant voter fraud in the Keystone State.   Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate approves a Trump nominee for the Energy Department’s panel.  Next, GOP Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL, plans to challenge the Electoral College’s upcoming reports on the 2020 Presidential Election.  Finally, Representative Jason Smith, R-Missouri, becomes the ranking member of the House Budgetary Committee. 
  58. 2020 Wednesday A:  Lt. Gen. Thomas McInerny, Ret., says that we must do something to fix our elections system and to fix the 2020 Elections as the Chi-Coms are the driving force behind this push to topple the American system of government.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, American and United Airlines are halting flights to Shanghai, communist China over their mistreatment of air crews in their country and the lengthy, costly delays Beijing imposes upon them.  The flights will divert to Seoul, South Korea, instead.  Meanwhile, NATO allies are planning to draw down forces in Afghanistan following the United States timeline of withdrawal.  We have been there long enough, time to go.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos says the siren’s song of FREE COLLEGE is socialism’s push to overthrow our educational system.  Finally, Elon Musk becomes the recipient of the 6th Annual Axel Springer Award, an award in Germany.
  59. 2020 Wednesday B: Attorneys Sidney Powell and Lin Wood hold a news conference in Atlanta, Georgia, answering questions of a massive crowd demanding answers as to why Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger are working so hard to move on from the election and are not doing their legal duty to the president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.  Trump supported Gov. Kemp in his fight against crackpot angry bigot Stacey Abrams and this is how he repays him?  WTF?  The attorneys also question WHY the state of Georgia used Dominion Voting Systems to count votes, a company using software owned mainly by the Chi-Coms and Venezuela.  What the f**k is up with this?  No, we believe Canada has declared WAR on the United States by selling us a system they won’t even use themselves.  SOBS.
  60. 2020 Wednesday C: At the White House today, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany shows clips of mayors, governors, and other elected leaders- all of whom are Democrats- who have locked down their locales over the Chi-Com Virus and then brazenly flaunted those restrictions.  We see all manner of losers, scumbags such as Gavin Newsom, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, and loads of other losers all going about their business, eating in fancy restaurants, bicycling, and other activities while demanding their citizens remain home, indoors, cowering, doing what they’re told.  Time to rise up, overthrow this scum, and send them to prison.
  61. 2020 Wednesday D: Yes, there is Wednesday afternoon football today, a game postponed from Sunday to Tuesday until today: Baltimore Ravens, 14 (6-5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers, 19 (11-0) 12:20 P.M.  Meanwhile, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3513 with a $11 million jackpot on the line: 06, 08, 13, 31, 38, and Mega 26.  Out of 80,577 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $15,107 apiece.  Winning tickets were sold in Seal Beach and San Diego, CA.  Here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #799 with a $231 million jackpot up for grabs: 28, 31, 40, 41, 46, and Powerball 04.  Out of 82,465 winning tickets, TWO people had four numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $22,579 apiece. 
  62. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of Wuhan, China: 64,293,447 confirmed cases, UP by 737,407 cases, 1,488,321 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,678 deaths, and 41,258,010 confirmed recoveries, UP by 459,584 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 13,987,747 confirmed cases, UP by 171,217 new cases, 275,643 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,436 new deaths, and 6,756,016 confirmed recoveries, UP by 65,918 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 POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 338,748 confirmed cases, 2,881 confirmed deaths, and 324,645 confirmed recoveries.
  63. 2020 Wednesday F: 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: 1,262,272 confirmed cases, 19,359 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 18,049 confirmed cases, 242 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 175,118 confirmed cases, 2,928 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-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: 99,419 confirmed number of cases, 1,589 confirmed deaths, and 33,458 confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.
  64. 2020 Wednesday G: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,883.79, UP 59.87 points (+0.20%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,349.37, DOWN 5.74 points (-0.36%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,669.61, UP 6.56 points (+0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,833.20 per troy oz., +3.00 (+0.18%) while the price of SILVER is $24.20 per troy ounce, +0.115 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,019.30 per troy oz, +7.20 (+0.71%) while the price of COPPER is $3.49 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,408.20 per troy oz, -21.50 (-0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $44.80 per barrel, -0.48 (-1.06%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.98.
  65. 2020 Wednesday H: In our joke of the day, Iranian President Hasan Rouhani rejects a bill sent to him by parliament that would restart their uranium enrichment program.  Folks, they have been enriching uranium from before Donald Trump became president and have never stopped.  Meanwhile, the White House condemns Democratic Party thuggery in Georgia as shock troops try to intimidate election officials.   Elsewhere, kidnapping and murder suspect James Edward Hawley dies in a shootout with the FBI.  Finally, Tesla set to release a self-driving upgrade in coming weeks.  Wow.  Something else foreign hackers can hack into and corrupt.  Not for us.
  66. 2021 Wednesday I: As a result of crooked elections in Arizona last month, Senator Martha McSally, R-AZ, leaves office on this date as her successor, former astronaut Mark Kelly, takes her place.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention came out on July 19, 1995, “A Chronicle of Sorts 1967-1969,” that was a glorious addition to the band’s discography seeing as how it contained 23 unreleased live tracks culled from a variety of shows between the years 1967 and 1969.  You have a variety of members of the band contributing to various tracks which makes it even more enjoyable.  We hope everyone will rush out to whatever site it is they do to seek it out in the format, the best price, the greatest condition, and get it.  You will enjoy this one for decades to come (unless, of course the predictions by the Greenies become ‘true’ (yeah right) that the world will end in as little as 12 years.  In that case, enjoy it for as long as you possibly can.  Just joking, of course).  Enjoy!

  61. 2018 Thursday: In Haiti and other parts of the Third World, cholera rears its ugly head once again.  The corrupt World Health Organization- controlled by the Chi-Coms- is trying to combat it.  Meanwhile, due to the corruption at Google and the shameful mishandling of sexual assault complaints, thousands of Google employees stage a walkout.  Friends, depose and deport Sundar Pichai, the man is little more than a POS.
  62. 2019 Friday: Moron candidate for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination- Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke- becomes the eighth Democrat hopeful to abandon the race due to low ranking and lack of funds.   He follows in the footsteps of Congressman Eric Swalwell (another moron), Gov. John Hickenlooper and Gov. Jay Inslee, as well as Congressman Seth Moulton, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, failed Mayor Bill Di Blasio, and Congressman Tim Ryan.     
  63. 2020 Sunday: President Donald J. Trump is holding five campaign rallies today, the first of which is in Washington, Michigan, in the icy cold.  Meanwhile, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette endorses President Trump today, the first GOP presidential candidate they have endorsed in decades.  Moving on, polls in Iowa are changing in favor of the president what with a lead of 48-percent to 41-percent for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Elsewhere, law enforcement declares a pro-Trump rally in Los Angeles, California, an unlawful assembly after a mob of violent leftists assaults the Trump supporters.
  64. 2020 Sunday A: In Mayor Bill Di Blasio’s New York City- a left-wing socialist hellhole, police arrest and hold nine citizens after they hosted a Halloween party in which 400 people showed up.  That’s socialists, for you- cannot have a party.  Elsewhere, in North Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, two protesters in two separate incidents are shot to death in yet another socialist ‘paradise on Earth.’
  65. 2020 Sunday B: Here are today’s NFL matchups and scores, beginning with a recap of Thursday Night Football’s game: (1) Atlanta Falcons, 25 (2-6) @ Carolina Panthers, 17 (3-5).

(13)  Dallas Cowboys, 9 (2-6) @ Philadelphia Eagles, 23 (3-4-1) @ 5:20 P.M. WTF is up with the flipping Cowboys?  They ain’t America’s team no more…
  66. 2020 Sunday C: Today is the first National Day of Remembrance for Americans murdered by illegal aliens.  President Trump signed an order this past Friday designating November 1 as a day in which, the American people will remember those slain by illegal alien POS’s living in the shadows of the country.  Meanwhile, Senator Amy Klobuchar, D-Minnesota, urges Democrats in her state NOT to mail in their ballots but to flood the polls so that their votes will be counted.  What?  Elsewhere, 56-percent of Americans say they are more satisfied with their lives now than they were four years ago.  This does not bode well for Democrats.  Finally, Father Michael McGivney undergoes beatification yesterday at the Vatican; he is the founder of the Knights of Columbus.  When Democrats talk about ‘the dogma lives loudly within someone,’ the answer is, ‘it’s better the dogma of Christ than the dogma of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.  Any flipping day!’
  67. 2020 Sunday D: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Bat Flu- the -so-called Pelosi Pox the aka ‘Go to Chinatown and hug a Chinaman’ (a moronic act of virtue-signaling) disease:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 46,419,939 confirmed cases, +503,788, 1,199,500, confirmed deaths, +6,430, and 31,009,559 confirmed recoveries, +1,172,467.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 9,302,271 confirmed cases, up 79,422 from yesterday’s reporting, 234,567 confirmed deaths, UP 482, and 5,567,985 confirmed recoveries, UP 15,815.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 936,350 confirmed cases, 18,549 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 15,207 confirmed cases, 219 confirmed deaths, and 11,776 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 112,580 confirmed cases, 2,468 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Florida- currently, they have 807,412 confirmed cases, 16,997 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Ron DeSantis for being yet another  ‘tight-lipped’ political hack about the number of recoveries.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo is living there: 314,943 confirmed cases, 2,554 confirmed deaths, and 302,729 confirmed recoveries.  Sadly, the deadly Chi-Vi continues embracing the world which should tell everyone that the Chi-Coms are NO ONE’S FRIENDS.  Time for some punishment, the nations of the world MUST stand up and defy the Chi-Coms, recognize Taiwan as the rightful sovereign of mainland China and let’s send these commie bastards packing.  RESTORE THE TWO-CHINA POLICY AND DEMAND A FREE AND INDEPENDENT HONG KONG.  Meanwhile… just saying folks BUT when the election is over and Joe’s back at home sitting in his rocker, eating chicken noodle soup, and watching reruns of Perry Mason, someone is going to have to charge Dr. Jill Biden with elder abuse because what she’s done to him in her drive to become first lady is criminal.

  74. 2021 Monday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- Today is Day No. 221 for the infamous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the catastrophe down on the southern border and Day No. 128 since the laughing hyena showed up to fulfill the demands of the job.  Next, here are the figures for the illegal alien invasion as presented by One America News early this morning.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $539,485,184.  Next, here is the cost for this year of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $333,690,306,560.  Stunning, folks, stunning.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal aliens who have swarmed into the United States this year: 3,420,059.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate for illegal aliens lurking within the fabric of the U.S.: 37,420,060.  (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).
  75. 2021 Monday G: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS I- In Mexican, an illegal tap into an oil pipeline results in at least 1 death, 15 injured, and the destruction of at least 50 homes.  Elsewhere, French President Emanuel Macron– still angry over the loss of the $40 billion submarine deal he had with Australia to the Brits and to the U.S. accused the Aussie Prime Minister Scott Morrison of LYING to him.  Next, at the G20 Climate Summit in Glasgow, Scotland, G20 leaders pledge to end the use of coal.  (Note- Joe Biden went to the summit in an 85-car motorcade where they will protest the use of fossil fuels.  Are these people too stupid to observe the irony here?  Even more incredible is that he arrived an hour late to the G20 press conference.)[xvii]
  76. 2021 Monday H: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS II- The Chi-Coms continue shaking their heads and wagging their fingers at naysayers.  They continue to trumpet, “We are not responsible for the Wuhan Virus, it did not come from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.”  Why then does the world call it the “Wuhan Virus,” Comrade Xi?
  77. 2021  Monday I: COVID-19 UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION I- The Food and Drug Administration has delayed a decision on the use of the Moderna China Virus vaccine in adolescents.  (Note- after what Chef MacDougal has undergone, we think they should hold off on ALL COVID-19 vaccines in children).

II- A judge sided with the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police over Windy City Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot’s demand that ALL police officers in the city undergo vaccination with the Wuhan Virus vaccine or be terminated from their employment with the city.  Awesome.   Meanwhile, a Louisiana judge has temporarily blocked the imposition of vaccine mandates in that state.  Elsewhere, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva continues battling vaccine mandates in L.A. County.

  85. 2021 Monday Q: PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP NEWS- Recent court filings show President Donald J. Trump trying to shield 770 pages of documents from the sham FALSE FLAG OPERATION January 06, 2021, ‘select committee.’  President Trump also expressed his displeasure with the unfair attacks on gubernatorial candidate, Glenn Youngkin, R-VA.  The pedophile-full Lincoln Project tried to smear Mr. Youngkin by trying to make it appear he supports RACISM, which he does not.
  86. 2021 Monday R: JOE BIDEN’S DAILY DISASTER- Prior to falling asleep at the G20 Climate Summit in Glasgow, Scotland, slobbering Joe Biden mumbled to reporters that sometime this week, the House will vote on his Build Back Better Bullshit, aka the BBBB.  Next, a new poll says that well under half of Americans believe that Joe Biden is ‘mentally sharp.’  In the group photo taken with other world leaders, slobbering Joe was on the far left-side of the photo frame, almost off the stage and by himself.  What a disaster, what a disgrace.  This is damaging to the image of the United States abroad.  Meanwhile, former congressman and CEO for Center for Security Policy, Fred H. Fleitz, says there’s ‘NO WAY Pope Francis called Joe Biden a “good Catholic.”’  Finally, a new Marist poll says that 46-percent of Democrat voters are longing for a new candidate in 2024 (and NOT for “Kooky Kamala” Harris, that’s for sure).[xix]
  87. 2021 Monday S: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- Fully Chi-Vi-vaccinated White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is reported to now have the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  She claims not to have been around poor old Joe Biden since last Tuesday, but it could be purposeful.  Many believe that Joe’s usefulness to the Democratic (Socialist) Party is now at a low ebb.   Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken warned the Chi-Coms today ‘NOT to move against Taiwan.’  Uh, okay, we are sure they are listening to you.
  88. 2021 Monday T: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS II- U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said that ‘Democrats must be prepared to move ahead- alone if need be- on raising the debt ceiling.  Next, the Biden regime announces that it will soon release vaccination and testing rules for the American public (all the while millions of illegal aliens flow across our southern border and across the country).  Moving on, the Biden regime announces that it will answer any Iranian wrongdoing no matter what they do.  (Note- are we going to see another Democrat or pseudo-Democrat president[xx] insert us into yet another violent, never-ending war?).
  89. 2021 Monday U: POLITICAL NEWS I- A new poll says that 7-in-10 American voters believe the country is on the WRONG track.  Next, Tommy Hicks Jr. told Newsmax that Virginia voters will reject the radical agenda of Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe, DS.  Speaking of ‘the Maggot,’ he blasted President Donald J. Trump’s ‘endorsement of his opponent, Glenn Youngkin.’  Meanwhile, Congressman Brian Steil, R-WI 1st congressional district, said of feeble Joe Biden that he is ‘more interested in pursuing a global minimum tax while ignoring the plight of U.S. citizens.’
  90. 2021 Monday V: POLITICAL NEWS II- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, broke the hearts of the liberal news media and the ultra-far-left crazies of his party when he said today that he ‘won’t vote for the multi-trillion reconciliation bill currently languishing in limbo until he knows exactly what’s in it, what it’s going to cost, and how it will affect both the American people and the U.S. economy.’  Of course, the uber-leftists were angry at this but thankfully, Joe is standing his ground.  He did, however, encourage everyone to vote on the infrastructure bill which is bi-partisan having been hammered out by members of both parties.  (Note- we hope both bills will go down to defeat unless the border wall is completed, and immigration laws enforced).
  91. 2021 Monday W: POLITICAL NEWS III- Announcement was made today that #MeToo casualty former Senator Al Franken, DS-MI, won’t primary the junior senator from New York, Kirsten “Whitey” Gillibrand in 2022.  Uh, okay.  Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is calling for a return to ‘Reagan Era patriotism.’  Amen, senator.  Next, James Maughan told Newsmax that the ‘media is ignoring Sweden’s success in combatting the China Virus.’
  92. 2021 Monday X: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS I- SCOTUS spurns a Catholic Hospital appeal over caring for a tranny patient.  The hospital in California declined to perform a procedure on a confused patient and sought to avoid a lawsuit but the U.S. Supreme Court won’t hear it.  Next, SCOTUS denied a case from the American Civil Liberties Union- the ACLU- that sought public access to FISA Court documents.  Can’t have that.  Another case the nation’s highest court won’t take is that of Hunter Biden’s former business partner, Devon Archer, who currently is languishing in federal prison for attempting to defraud the Oglala Sioux Indian tribe.  Finally, SCOTUS is weighing the Texas fetal heartbeat abortion law.
  93. 2021 Monday Y: U.S. MILITARY NEWS- The Pentagon is beginning to awaken to the dangers posed by the Chi-Coms what with reports claiming leaders such as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley being ‘rattled’ by their lightning speed progress in weapons development.  Next, the U.S. military is warning the federal government of the potential loss of hundreds, if not thousands, of skilled positions within the military due to the impending December 1, 2021, deadline to vaccinate or to undergo courts martial.
  94. 2021 Monday Z: FOURTH ANNUAL LAVRENTIY BERIA AWARD UPDATES- Chef Olaf Bologolo adds the Lincoln Project and its individual loser members to this year’s crop of scumbags vying for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  The fact that pedophiles exist within the organization- not to mention that many of them are absolute losers- should make them a hands-down winner or one of the three runner-up positions.  Congratulations to George Conway, Steve Schmidt- rhymes with Shit, John Weaver, Rick Wilson, Jennifer Horn, Ron Steslow, Reed Galen, Mike Madrid, and paid hack Michael Steele (and the rest of them whether they remain or have left) are now in the running.  (Note- it’s interesting for us to consider the fact that they take pride in trying to make Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin with the bogus United the Right group that we believe are left-wing paid operatives)[xxi].
  95. 2021 Monday AA: SPORTS NEWS I- In tonight’s Monday Night Football game, a struggling home team Kansas City Chiefs (4-4-0) manages to beat the visiting New York Giants (2-6-0) by a final score of 20-17.  What is up with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs?  Still, a win’s a win.

  97. 2021 Monday CC: MORON NEWS I- Dull-witted Fox News Channel journalist Juan Williams says that ‘parents’ rights are code for white supremacism.’  Wow.  You go, Juan, you go, you dumb son of a bitch.  In other fascinating Moron News, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, DS, is going to sign a bill that will prohibit Philadelphia Police Department officers from making routine traffic stops.  Thus, people can drive along in all manner of unsafe vehicles without a care in the world that a cop will pull them over.  Wow.
  98. 2021 Monday:   Friends, one year ago, this is where we were at: in two days, the first election of a lifetime- the one between GOOD- Donald Trump- and EVIL- “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his Chi-Com backers occurs.  Please, join us here every day so you can learn the truth of what these scalawags and their Chi-Com puppet masters are up to; you know it can’t be good…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention went into the studio and recorded their final studio album for approximately seven years: “Tippler’s Tales,” released on May 19, 1978.  The album featured the quartet of Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), and Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, viola, mandolins, and vocals), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), and Bruce Rowland (drums, percussion, and piano).  Management of the band happily accepted the finished product and then paid the musicians off which allowed them to embark on separate journeys.  Once again, the album was a classic romp of English folk music with tinges of rock thrown in for good measure.  The band also did the classic tune, “John Barleycorn Must Die,” which Traffic had done about five years earlier.  We enjoy this album and know that you will, too, so please seek it out, listen to some samples and then add it to your ever-growing collection of nothing but the best in AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended music.

ENDNOTES:

[i] Sadly, 810 years later, New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio would begin doing the same thing as he goes after Jews in his city he deems in violation of his moronic Chi-Vi restrictions and lockdowns.  He dispatches armies of thugs to accost Jews on the street.  What’s next, Mayor Di Blasio?  Requiring the Jews to sew yellow Stars of David onto their clothes for easy identification?

[ii] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.

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

[v] Not sure when we will offer the music of Def Leppard, but we hope to do it sometime within the next decade.  Please, keep posted for further information.

[vi] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[vii] 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)

[xvii] Here is what Charlie Kirk said of Joe’s trip: “Biden and his convoy of 4 planes will emit 2.2 million pounds of carbon during his 5-day trip across Europe.  And his 2 Presidential Cadillacs, part of an 85-car convoy, emitted 1,680 pounds of carbon to drive 92 miles to Glasgow at 8 mpg…All to “fight climate change.” (Tweet at 1:20 P.M. Nov. 1, 2021)  God bless you, Mr. Kirk.

[xviii] On Newsmax today, Greg Kelly said of these forced mandates that it could be an attempt to nationalize all first-responders which would make it easier to control them and to unionize them.  It would also allow the federal government to send people wherever they want to send them as though they were military or federal employees.  He could be right.

[xix] Another poll says that 7-in-10 Americans believe the country to be on the wrong track.

[xx] President George W. Bush comes to mind…

[xxi] A new Trafalgar poll says that Glenn Youngkin has a 2.3-percent lead over Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe.  Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax today that Glenn Youngkin will be the clear winner tomorrow.

Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump pardoned former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had been falsely convicted of a misdemeanor contempt-of-court charge for defying a judge’s orders that he stop conducting immigration patrols; the 85-year-old retired lawman had faced the prospect of jail time at his October sentencing.

  59. 2020 Tuesday A: Tonight’s speakers at the Republican National Convention include First Lady Melania Trump, Eric Trump, Tiffany Trump, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo speaking from Jerusalem as he continues his Mideastern trip.  This, of course, has Democrats foaming from the mouth just as Melania speaking from the White House rose garden does.  Oh, boohoo.  Also speaking tonight are Sen. Rand Paul, R-KY, Florida Lt.Gov. Jeanette Nunez, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, anti-abortion advocate Abby Johnson, Maine Lobsterman Jason Joyce, Navajo Nation Vice President Myron Lizer, Mary Ann Mendoza, a mother who lost her son to an illegal drunken driver, Nicolas Sandman, the kid vilified by the press for supposedly being ‘disrespectful to a Native American elder who turned out to be a fraud, as well as other surprise guests.  Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics says “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads President Donald J. Trump by 52-percent to 42.4-percent.  Uh, okay.
  60. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 23,694,646 confirmed cases, UP by 269,802 cases, 814,354 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,638 deaths, and 15,381,104 confirmed recoveries, UP by 230,337 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,850,278 confirmed cases, UP by 56,817 new cases, 180,375 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,046 new deaths, and 2,980,604 confirmed recoveries, UP by 33,332 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true.
  61. 2020 Tuesday C: 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: 673,095 confirmed cases, 12,257 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,769 confirmed cases, 49 confirmed deaths, and 2,172 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,456 confirmed cases, 1,872 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed 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, the Empire State: 430,774 confirmed number of cases, 32,864 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you putrid piece of culvert muck, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.
  62. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,248.44, DOWN 60.02 points (-0.21%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,466.47, UP 86.75 points (+0.76%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,443.62, UP 12.34 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,935.00 per troy oz., +11.90 (+0.62%) while the price of SILVER is $26.55 per troy ounce, +0.277 (+1.05%).  The price of PLATINUM is $937.40 per troy oz, +3.40 (+0.36%) while the price of COPPER is $2.94 per pound, +0.006 (+0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $43.43 per barrel, +0.08 (+0.18%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.91 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  63. 2021 Wednesday:  Hello, friends, stick around to find out whatever the hell mess Joe Biden is creating today on behalf of his Chi-Com taskmasters.

  59. 2008 Friday: Unemployment in the United States hits 5.7-percent, its highest rate in four years.  You know it must be an election year.
  60. 2009 Saturday: The thugs ruling Venezuela order the closure of at least 34 privately-owned radio stations.  It’s all for the ‘revolution’ don’t you know?  No- it’s what flipping communist do.  First thing that goes is freedom of speech.  Meanwhile, in Punjab, Pakistan, following claims that Christians desecrated a Holy Quran, jihadists murder six Christians. 
  61. 2010 Sunday: Following Palestinian thugs firing rockets into Israel last night, the Israelis launch airstrikes against Hamas thugs in the Gaza Strip.  Elsewhere, Venezuelan thug dictator Hugo Chavez- claiming the Colombians are going to invade his country to liberate people- threatens to send Venezuelan military forces to their shared border.  Colombia responds that in so many words, he’s full of fecal matter.
  62. 2011 Monday: Muslims are getting mighty uppity in Xinjiang Province, China, what with rioting which has led to at least 11 deaths including five jihadists and another 20-to-30 injured.  The Chi-Coms are preparing to crack down on the scum.  Meanwhile, North Korea continues playing the United States for chumps by saying they are willing to engage in the Six-Party Talks yet again.  Fine people, exceptionally fine people, the lying North Koreans.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives holds another vote and this time is able to raise the DEBT LIMIT CEILING so as to avert the 2011 Debt Limit Ceiling Crisis.  The Democrats want to spend and spend and spend…so what else is new?  
  63. 2012 Wednesday: Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak announces that in 30 days, ALL ultra-orthodox Jewish men will become available for the nation’s military draft.  Of course, the ultra-orthodox are unhappy but when it comes to defending one’s country, you do what you must do.

  65. 2014 Friday: Days after imposing additional sanctions against Russia, U.S. President Barack Obama contacts Russian President Vladimir Putin to express concern about Russia’s continuing support of Ukrainian separatists.  Meanwhile, a medical examiner ruled that a New York City police officer’s chokehold caused the death of Eric Garner, whose videotaped arrest, and final pleas of “I can’t breathe!” had sparked outrage.  What happened to Mr. Garner was not right; however, as impartial we must point out that from the moment police tried to take Garner into custody, he resisted arrest and continued resisting arrest until he died.  Do not fight the cops when they want to arrest you.
  66. 2015 Saturday: After Puerto Rican Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla warned creditors the previous June that if its debt did not undergo restructuring to keep the commonwealth afloat, Puerto Rico fails to make a $58 billion payment on bonds issued by the Public Finance Corporation.  In other news, Palestinian riffraff have been causing trouble for the Israelis who after the scumbags murder an innocent wee babe in his crib by setting him on fire leads Israeli Defense Forces to take the fight to the human garbage.  At least two Palestinian 17-year-olds are killed in the resulting fray.
  67. 2016 Monday:  In the autonomous district of Yamalo-Nenets, Siberia, an outbreak of anthrax kills one person, sickens another eight, and kills at least 2,300 reindeer.  The authorities blame it on…climate change…what else?  Elsewhere, after receiving a request from the ‘government’ in Libya to take out ISIS thugs in Sirte, NATO warplanes arrive on scene, drops loads of bombs, and according to the government kills a whole lotta scumbags.
  68. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms the Honorable Christopher A. Wray the next head of the FBI, thus ending the era of the corrupt James Comey.  Elsewhere, in Herat, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again when a bomb blast at the Jawadia Shia Mosque kills at least 30 and injures and maims countless others.  Got to love the religion!  Next, famed keyboardist with the rock band, Steppenwolf- Goldy McJohn- died in Seattle, Washington, on this date from a heart attack; he was 72-years-old.
  69. 2018 Wednesday: The remains of dozens of presumed casualties of the Korean War were returned to U.S. soil; in an emotional ceremony in Hawaii, military members carried 55 boxes draped with American flags off two military transport planes.  Meanwhile, in Paris, angry ticket agents at the Eiffel Tower go on strike leaving tens of thousands of tourists perplexed as to WTF to do?
  70. 2019 Thursday: Keyboardist with the Kinks[xiv] from 1979 to the early 1990s- Ian Gibbons- died at his home in England from bladder cancer; he was only 67.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate confirms Kelly Craft as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com intransigence, President Donald J. Trump announces via a tweet that starting September 1, 2019, the U.S. is going to slap a 10-percent tariff on $300 billion of Chi-Com exports.  Good.  The SOBs have been raping the United States for a long, long time.  Time to make those bloodsuckers pay.
  71. 2020 Saturday: Florida is bracing today for incoming Hurricane Isaias.  Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans are working hard to craft a new Chinese Virus relief package.  The Democrats want to continue giving unemployed Americans $600 atop their state unemployment checks while the GOP wants to slash the additional funding to $200 atop the weekly state unemployment checks.  The GOP wants workers to return to work while the Democrats seek to keep them at home, dependent upon federal government until well after the November elections.  Democrats seek to topple the U.S. economy as only then can uber-leftists force Marxism down the throats of the American people.  Finally, BOTH Democrats and Republicans slam President Donald J. Trump for seeking to remove U.S. troops from Germany and redeploy them farther east to countries such as Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, as well as bring some of them home.  Very few NATO member countries fail to pay their annual 2-percent dues.   As for the most prosperous nation in Western Europe and a linchpin of the alliance: Germany wants U.S. troops to protect them from Russia yet Angela Merkel makes energy deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas pipelines coming directly into her country.  This is bulls**t! 
  72. 2020 Saturday A: Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 17,594,541 confirmed cases, UP 273,147, 679,439 confirmed deaths, UP 5,617, and 10,333,166 confirmed recoveries, UP 178,140.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,686,214 confirmed cases, UP 61,034 new cases, 156,370 confirmed deaths, UP 1,124, and 2,293,228 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,254.  Next, in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 500,130 confirmed cases, 9,224 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,243 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 112,936 while the number of deaths is 13,588.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Tom Wolf is little more than a hardcore political hack.
  73. 2021 Sunday: Today will be my final day of the week which means, I won’t be back for six months as that is how the rotation goes.  Join us at Gettr by going to @aicpendblog.com as well as at Chef Lilah’s Twitter page.  We sure as heck dumped our Facebook accounts…

II. 1954 Friday A: The first part of the battle for Huguette 6 goes as planned with a sortie by a squadron of B-26 bombers followed by dive bombers lit up the communists clinging to the outlying position. According to witnesses, the Viet Minh holding the position were obliterated. However, French troops moving up to assault the position from two angles found themselves under heavy fire from communist positions holding the approaches to their target and were unable to reach it in time. By the time they did, communists had moved to retake the position and heavy fighting ensued, much of it by hand-to-hand. French forces would be forced to pull back under heavy fire.

  55. 2004 Friday: Crazed Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr declares he will employ suicide bombers against U.S. troops should they make a move on his militias in the city of Najaf.  American and Coalition invaders are overrunning parts of the country in their quest for ‘weapons of mass destruction’ and then stamping out jihadis that the Shiites are preparing to begin lashing back at the so-called “Crusaders.”

  59. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  60. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  61. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  62. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.
  63. 2012 Monday: The trial of former senator and vice-presidential candidate John Edwards for misuse of campaign funds gets underway in North Carolina.  Elsewhere, famed bassist Chris Ethridge who played with the Flying Burrito Brothers[xi] (1968-69 / 1974-76 / 1990-93)—among other bands—lost his battle with pancreatic carcinoma on this date.  He died in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi, at the age of 65.  Next, the Iranians are angry because a malware attack has hammered the National Iranian Oil Company.  Sucks to be you.  Finally, the White House is launching an investigation into its advance staff in the wake of the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
  64. 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
  65. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  66. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  67. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, that would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  68. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  69. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  70. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  71. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland. 
  72. 2021 Friday: Stick around and find out the truth with us just as we do…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Once again, archivists for UFO combined several shows together for an enticing offering for the fans: “Impact Live” (August 14, 2017).  Two of the shows come from the 1990s featuring a lineup of Phil Mogg (vocals), Michael Schenker (guitars), Pete Way (bass), Paul Raymond (keyboards/rhythm guitar), and Simon Wright (drums).  The other show comes from the 1970s and features Phil Mogg (vocals), Michael Schenker (guitars), Pete Way (bass), Paul Raymond (keyboards/rhythm guitar), and Andy Parker (drums).  While some may debate the energy showcased here, others are excited to have more access to more shows featuring one of the all-time great veteran bands coming to us from the late 1960s.  We believe there is NOTHING available today that can compare with this exciting band so why not check it out for yourselves and consider adding it to your collection- we think you will be glad you did.

  62. 2021 Friday: It appears that Democrats are cowering in their corners over what President Donald J. Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A.

  64. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’ 
  65. 2021 Friday C: President Trump awards the medal of freedom to three golfers- Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player, and Babe Zaharias.   Meanwhile, Ronna McDaniel is elected to another term as chair of the Republican National
    Committee whereas Hope Hicks says she is leaving next week.  Larry Kudlow and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are both remaining to the end of Trump’s term.    Next, President Trump promises to be a GIANT VOICE for his followers, all 77-80 million of them.  Finally, Simon and Schuster cancels Senator Josh Hawley’s book deal following his role in contesting the election results (which all the losers- both right and left- are using as an excuse to jump ship).
  66. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  67. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC and the DNC contained timing devices.
