Currently, Joe is shy 180,827 deaths.   Now that the CDC says it’s ‘okay’ for kids aged 12-15 to get the shots, the Biden regime is urging parents to rush their children to the nearest drug store to get their immunizations for the Bat Fu Yuk out of Wuhan, communist China.    
  66. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,763,165 confirmed cases, 62,463 confirmed deaths, and 2,006,829 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,278,549 confirmed cases, 35,897 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,556 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,376 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 420,192 confirmed cases, 5,663 confirmed deaths, and 203,994 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Military: they have 291,757 confirmed cases, 348 confirmed deaths, and 278,457 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  69. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.112 per gallon, $2.886 in Florida, $3.840 in Hawaii, and $3.522 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.820.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Egypt: $2.114 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,278,809,428,671 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 50 for ‘Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the border.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues the so-called ‘controversial’ Title 42 implemented by President Donald J. Trump back in March 2020 to close the southern border over Bat Fu Yuk concerns to all but the most essential travel.  People are asking where “Kooky Kamala” stands on the Biden regime continuing the Trump policy?  (Note- we all believe that the border remains wide open and that armies of illegal aliens continue pouring across it which is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, lining the border with minefields, laying in foo gas pits, building anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, and \anti-boat obstacles,  as well as to station fast-response units along the border.  We also believe that U.S. Special Forces MUST carry out targeted assassinations of human traffickers, smugglers, and other criminals operating along our southern border).  (Additional note- NO matter what these lying Biden regime officials say, people are still flooding across the southern border.  Period.  In April, more than 178,000 illegals were apprehended crossing the border while 6,000 illegal aliens per day are being released into the interior of the country.  Hunting licenses anyone?).[xxi]
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fighting between the Israelis and the human fecal matter in Gaza continues, thanks to the Biden regime sending billions to the Iranians and millions to the Palestinian terrorists.  Missiles are crisscrossing the border with at least 55 dead, most of whom are Palestinians.[xxii]  The Israelis have launched targeted missile strikes on the Islamic National Bank and the Finance Ministry in Gaza leveling both buildings to the ground.  Speaking of the Iranians, so-called ‘Climate Czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry swore today that he NEVER informed the Iranians of Israeli covert ops in Syria.  The Iranians claim otherwise.  Still, the Biden regime is sending a flunky from the U.S. State Department to broker some sort of peace deal between the warring sides.  Good luck.  (Note- at least befuddled old Joe says that ‘Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.  Exceptionally good, Joe, exceptionally good).
  72. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Joe Biden’s erratic policies according to a new report are giving the Chi-Coms the ‘edge’ over the United States.  We concur.  In another surprise news, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is sanctioning a Chi-Com official, Yu Hui, who USED to hold office that allowed him to persecute the Falun Gong and other religious minorities.  Wow.  Next, Secretary Blinken stressed ‘U.S. resolve’ to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  We bet Mr. Lavrov was trembling in his shoes.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– A new report says that thanks to the Chi-Coms and their release of the ‘VID around the world and to the United States, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. went back up in 2020.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is raising questions about events that have become commonplace during the China Virus pandemic such as lockdowns and restrictions, especially on religious liberties.  Elsewhere, a panel agreed that the WHO- the World Health Organization- should have greater latitude in investigating the origins of pandemics.  Currently, the WHO is in the pocket of the Beijing Bullies.  Moving on, the Buckeye State is giving vaccinated citizens the opportunity to win a lottery of $1 million.  They hope everyone will rush out to get the vaccine.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– White House reporters are lambasting the Biden regime over its lack of transparency.  Dumb asses, listen up!  First, Joe Biden can only get it together once or twice a week.  The man is senile.  Second, what you see is a continuation of the Obama-Biden regime that shut out the news media, conducted its own in-house photography sessions, and even spied and jailed reporters.  YOU OWN THIS.  They are unhappy that the White House comm team edits all quotes before they go to press.  Wow.  Sounds like Joseph Goebbels is somewhere behind the scenes…Elsewhere, 120 former U.S. military and Department of Defense officials are warning about the peril our country faces as well as that from Joe Biden’s mental fitness (or lack of it).
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Biden regime is going to provide federal COVID-19 relief aid to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, Joe Biden is going full-blown Cloward and Piven by pushing his $4.1 trillion spending bill.  He said to the BIG FOUR House and Senate leaders- Kevin McCarthy and “Cocaine  Mitch” McConnell on the right side of the aisle and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- that all he has to do is ‘to snap his (flaccid) fingers and so it shall be.’  Whoa, Joe, whoa. The GOP leaders told ‘Forgetful Joe’ moments later that ‘raising taxes on the American people is a nonstarter.’  
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  According to Newsmax, prosecutors in the Derek Chauvin case asked for an ‘upward departure’ which means that they want Chauvin to get more time than he originally would have due to the fact that he abused his power.  The judge in the case agreed and made a ruling that will allow the sentence to become harsher both for him and the other three officers awaiting trial.   Meanwhile, the POS shooter who opened up in Times Square, New York City, a few days ago and shot three people including a young child was apprehended down in Florida. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Last night, she was running her mouth and today, she is still running her mouth.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, was voted out as House GOP conference chair.  She went to the mics after being humiliated and said she ‘will work to make sure that President Donald J. Trump NEVER gets close to the White House ever again.’  WTF is wrong with you, Liz?  Just cross over to the Democrat side of the aisle, you and your father were NEVER flipping Republicans, you frigging moron.[xxiii]  Ret. Col. Denton Knapp says, ‘Cheney’s ouster was justified.’  Correct.  She is not a team player.  However, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the ‘House GOP will advance with a unified conservative vision’ as the real battle is winning the House (and Senate) back in 2022.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– Yet another Democrat domino topples, this time new tax records show that a former staffer for Senator Dianne “The Disoriented” Feinstein- Daniel Jones who runs the ultra-left-wing, pro-Marxist TDIP, aka the Democracy Integrity Project, colluded with George Soros, the globalist former Nazi now a pro-communist scumbag to fund the so-called ‘Steele Dossier,’ the phony document with which the Democrats went after President Donald J. Trump.  It is amazing as to how as time passes; more information comes to light that continues to show just what an evil, bogus sham investigation the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert S. Mueller III was.  NOTHING BUT CRAP.  Meanwhile, Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, considered to be most at risk in next year’s elections, blasts the Biden regime’s economic policies as being bad for the Granite State.  Wise up, Joe.  Even members of your party are preparing to swim against the current.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Two far-left Democratic-Socialist senators, “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, Hawaii, and “Creepy Cory” Booker, New Jersey, are planning to set up a ‘new caucus’ in the haloed halls of Congress (yeah, right), the BIPOC- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color caucus.  Wow.  Big deal.  ONLY Democrats who are ‘black, indigenous, and people of color’ will qualify while Republicans who identify with those same groups will be kept at arm’s length as though they have B.O.  What a load of crap.  Still, look at the two losers setting it up and we mean LOSERS, with a capital “L.”  Elsewhere, H.R. 1 is stuck in a Senate committee.  We hope it remains there as though it’s in a tar pit.
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: National Security News– The federal government is easing restrictions in 12 states with which to combat the gasoline shortages thanks to the cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline that runs from Texas through 16 other states ending up in Maine.  Yet, the feds do not seem to want to address the hack, claiming it’s a confidential business matter.  Uh-huh.  Experts claim that the cyberattack exposes the lack of required defenses protecting pipelines such as the Colonial pipeline.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

[i] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

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

[v] 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.

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

[vii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[viii] See earlier footnote.

[ix] In late 2019- early 2020, the World Health Organization says the COVID-19 strain of this Chinese-engineered POS disease was NOT transmissible between human beings…until it was.

[x] 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)

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

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

[xxiii] President Donald J. Trump released a statement today in which he said he expects to see Liz Cheney become the next paid commentator on CNN or MSNBC.  She will be removed from office in the primary race next year in Wyoming.

[xxiv] Not sure when we will do the music of Jay-Z.

[xxv] We hope to do the music of the Go-Gos one day.  They were awesome.

[xxvi] We hope to do the Foo Fighters when we do Soundgarden, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and maybe even Korn.

[xxvii] Not sure as to when we will do Carole King?  Perhaps in 20 years or so.

[xxviii] We definitely want to do the music of Todd Rundgren and Nazz as well as Aerosmith.

[xxix] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner one day. Maybe she will be included as a solo act.

[xxx] For the hell of it, we may be doing the music of the Monkees sooner- these guys deserve it.

  67. 2013 Friday: In Birmingham, United Kingdom, eleven members of a terror cell find themselves in the joint for planning an attack to exceed the atrocities committed on July 7 and 9/11.  Elsewhere, once again, North Korea is talking crap with South Korea so to be on the safe side in any ‘negotiations’ with the North, Seoul orders its remaining workers out of the Kaesong Industrial Region because no one ever knows what the Kim Family might do when agitated.

  70. 2016 Tuesday: Today is a BIG PRIMARY DAY in the United States as voters across the country flock to the polls.  The states on the line today are Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island with Donald Trump expected to reel in the lion’s share of votes in the GOP primaries while Hillary Clinton is expected to win all but one; Rhode Island should go to Bernie Sanders, the Vermont communist.  A few more victories and Hillary will wrap up the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.
  71. 2017 Wednesday: On Hulu, “The Handmaid’s Tale” begins its run.  The show is an adaptation of a novel by author Margaret Atwood.   Elsewhere, Venezuela becomes all huffy-puffy over the Organization of American States calling a meeting of member states without sending an invite to the crumbling socialist hellhole.

Trump on this date.  Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, a jury finds comedian Bill Cosby guilty of sexual assault.   Elsewhere, Avigdor Lieberman warns Tehran that IF the Iranians do something crazy such as attacking Tel Aviv, the Israelis will light the Shiite lunatics up.  Finally, by a 14-7 vote, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee votes to keep the special counsel Robert S.

  73. 2019 Friday: At a meeting of the National Rifle Association, President Donald J. Trump announces that he is withdrawing the United States from the Arms Trade Treaty, an agreement between many nations that regulates the flow of firearms around the world.
  74. 2020 Sunday:  On the COVID-19 battlefront today, the world announces 2,965,263 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus what with 206,265 confirmed deaths but 863,464 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 985,027 confirmed cases what with 55,383 confirmed deaths but 109,12 confirmed recoveries.  Communist China continues lying by claiming the same number of cases that they have been reporting for a couple of weeks now: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed cases, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  The fact that the Chinese continue spreading this bulls**t means when we come out on the other side that we hammer them with all manner of lawsuits, that we repatriate American industries in their country, and that we return to a Two-China Policy in which, we recognize Taiwan, aka Nationalist or Free China, as the rightful ruler of the mainland portion of the country.  It would serve Beijing right.  Either that or pay $10 million per death to the victims of the virus they engineered in their Wuhan Institute of Virology around the entire world.  
  75. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 147,346,436 confirmed cases, +697,114, 3,112,206  confirmed deaths, +9,618, and 85,028,957 confirmed recoveries, +539,462.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,320,125 confirmed cases, UP 75,508 from yesterday’s reporting, 578,356 confirmed deaths, UP 1,132,[vii] and 119,078,566 confirmed recoveries, UP 2,264.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[viii] 
  76. 2021 Monday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, There Have Been 263,905 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.    
  77. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,731,677 confirmed cases, 61,434 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,212,097 confirmed cases, 34,912 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,284 confirmed cases, 478 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 397,006 confirmed cases, 5,478 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Rhode Island, the smallest state in the Union: they have 146,960 confirmed cases, 2,663 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[ix]   
  78. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,107 confirmed cases, 6,353 confirmed deaths, and 829,983 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Lithuania, a bastion of freedom in the Baltic: 241,872 cases of the virus, 3,857 confirmed deaths and 218,011 confirmed recoveries.[x]    
  79. 2021 Monday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,981.57, DOWN 61.92 points (-0.18%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,138.78, UP 121.97 points (+0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,187.62, UP 7.45 points (+0.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.05 per barrel, +0.14 (+0.26%).  The price of GOLD is $1,782.00 per troy oz., +1.90 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $26.31 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.39%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,255.20 per troy oz, +8.80 (+0.71%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, +0.02 (+0.43%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,912.58 per troy oz, -0.97 (-0.03%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,800.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.87.     In Kenyan Schilling, one greenback equals 108.00 and in Korean- North Won, a buck equals 900.03 and in Angolan Kwanza, one dollar equals 652.83 of theirs.[xiv]  
  80. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.994 per gallon, $2.788 in Florida, $3.743 in Hawaii, and $3.413 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Missouri: $2.568.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The first country on the list is the absolute lowest gasoline price, Venezuela: $0.076 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  How about that?  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,217,294,081,383 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Customs and Border Patrol confirmed early today that 800 Venezuelans have been apprehended along our southern border attempting to cross into the U.S.  According to the Bidenistas, these intruders will most likely be given protected status meaning U.S. taxpayers will be footing the bill for decades to come as well as for their ever-increasing progeny.   In other border news, the Grand Old Party (GOP) claims that ‘IF we win back the majority in the House in 2022, we will refund the construction of the border wall.’  (Note- we believe that besides the wall, we should lay in minefields, obstacles for vehicles, boats, and people, as well as electrifying a second inner fence and the building of foo gas trenches past that.  We also believe that baby alligators must be seeded from the Deep South to the Rio Grande, and also that military bases should be relocated to the border, especially since we do much of our war-fighting in the Middle East.  Add to that the laying in of razor wire fences along the boundary line through the middle of the Rio Grande and the positioning of fast action helicopter and drone forces would also help halt the cartels just as targeted assassinations of coyotes would be good, too.  This would solve a lot of problems.  Period).
  82. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– at a recent confab of House Republicans, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned his fellow Republicans NOT to go soft on ongoing Chi-Com espionage operations ongoing in the United States.  We must remain vigilant.   Next, Israeli intelligence officials are planning a visit to Washington, D.C. to see their counterparts and to warn them that Joe Biden’s concessions to the Iranians are not beneficial for either nation.   Sadly, this announcement follows on the heels that former U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry, Democratic-Socialist, tipped off the Iranians more than 200 covert Mossad operations in Syria which makes him a prime candidate for prosecution under the Logan Act.  The POS scumbag did this while Donald Trump was the president of the United States.  Prosecute this loser and send him to federal prison.  Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan tells Joe Biden that he should reconsider calling the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  (Or else!).
  83. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– the Centers for Disease Control says that ‘summer camps in the U.S. may reopen as long as social distancing rules are observed and masks are worn.  Next, the Biden administration is sending vaccines and PPE gear to India, the nation now beset by the most cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Next, Chloé Zhao who won three Oscars at last night fiasco found her success censored in communist China because she criticized the communist nation.  Oi vie! 
  84. 2021 Monday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– First, Democrats continue doing everything to continue stealing elections what with 10 states seeking to empower felons leaving prison with the right to vote.   Next, as the effort to audit the 2020 Election in Arizona continue, the judge scheduled to oversee the effort- Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury- recused himself because some of the attorneys involved in the effort worked as interns for the court official. 
  85. 2021 Monday J: Joe Biden News– Ten U.S. states are suing the Biden administration over its ‘draconian climate change laws, rules and regulations.’  Good.  All 50 states and the U.S. territories and commonwealths should be suing the Biden administration, too.  Next, Joe Biden plans to feed 34 million schoolchildren via another high-priced plan.  Sorry, Joe, we can feed our own kids.  F— you.[xviii]  Next, President Donald J. Trump’s chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, says that ‘Joe Biden’s tax plan is an assault on investment and investors.’  Add to that the fact that critics are lambasting senile old Joe by reminding him of what he did back in 1972 with taxes and how now in demanding tax increases across the board, he is coming into conflict with both the GOP and SALT (state and local taxes) rebels.  Elsewhere, as if things are not bad enough for the inept Biden regime, Rep. Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s tax hike on capital gains is a MAJOR BLUNDER.’  Finally, America First Legal and Trump adviser Stephen Miller are filing lawsuits against the Biden regime accusing the bumbling Biden regime of RACISM in that its ‘plan’ to help ranchers and farmers is ONLY for black ones, not whites.  This is clearly racist and a violation of the American people’s civil rights.  NOT good for Joe.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Political News I–  Goofy Rep. Tim “Poached Egg Eyes” Ryan has officially announced that he is running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Rob Portman.  Big deal.   Next, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, says that the leaders of the GOP are ‘Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell.  We’ll see, Liz, we’ll see.  We’ll check back in on your in November 2022.   In other fascinating news, pundits are pointing out that Fox News LOSER Chris Wallace just cannot get beyond President Donald J. Trump nor the Antifa and Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Chris, there is a reason as to WHY we mostly no longer watch Fox News but especially the weekends when you are on the air.  POS.
  87. 2021 Monday L: Political News II– In Connecticut, District Court Judge Robert Chatigny has dismissed a law preventing trannys from participating in scholastic sports within the state.  WTF?  Next, former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA 9th congressional district, rules out a run for the governorship in the Peach State or for any other office.  Moving on, Democrats are sobbing big tears of grief because it looks like the 2020 Census is going to lead to the loss of numerous Democrat seats due to people pouring out of BLUE STATES and relocating to RED STATES that are going to get new GOP seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Add to that the redistricting that is going to happen and it would appear the Dems’ goose is cooked.  In other fascinating news, we learned today that 62-percent of WHITE LIBERALS are afflicted with mental illness.  Hell, we could have told you that without having to consult psychiatrists. 
  88. 2021 Monday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– For the first time in nearly two decades, SCOTUS agrees to hear a case regarding concealed carry of handguns.  Next, SCOTUS rejects the GOP’s bid to revive the PUBLIC CHARGE rule put in place by President Donald J. Trump that people seeking asylum in the U.S. had to be able to support themselves without receiving government aid.  Democrats can’t have that- they want to care for their low-wage slaves like they’re wee babes in need of Nancy Pelosi’s drooping breast milk.  Man, put it back into effect, let’s stop supporting illegal aliens and take care of the American people. 
  89. 2021 Monday N: Miscellaneous News I– An ‘Anti-Asian/Anti-Pacific Islander Hate Bill’ passes in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 99-1.  Good.  Democrats, tell the black Democrats to stop attacking the Asian and Pacific Islander Democrats.  The lone NO vote belonged to Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO.  He voted against it because he said it ‘was too broad and scope and could infringe on the rights of others.’  Speaking of Asian hate, a black man violently attacked an Asian man in New York City.   Next, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that the ‘U.S. Department of Justice is launching an investigation into the Louisville, Kentucky, police department in the aftermath of the death of Breonna Taylor.  (Note- another police department beats the dust). 
  90. 2021 Monday O: Miscellaneous News II– The Oscar ratings last night are even worse than last year’s what with 9.85 million viewers.  In 2020, 23 million tuned in and that was considered LOW.  Everyone is pointing out that WOKEISM is killing show business, it’s killing sports, and it’s killing the American way of life.  We must stand against WOKEISM at every turn which means, NO MORE MOVIES and NO MORE SPORTS.  In other news, first-time gun purchases are driving gun sales in the U.S.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump’s official portrait is now on display in the official gallery of presidential portraits.  Finally, 53 women made it through United States Marine Corps boot camp, a place that was formerly ALL male.  Congratulations.
  91. 2021 Monday P: Business News– Panera Bread Company is back in the black what with delivery and takeout meals.  Next, a Florida McDonald’s restaurant is paying people $50 just to show up and interview.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,715 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,960 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 461 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  94. 2022 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,212,425 confirmed cases, 90,324 confirmed deaths, and 8,958,374 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,955,748 confirmed cases, 73,869 confirmed deaths, and 5,813,904 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 238,861 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,489,316 confirmed cases, 12,668 confirmed deaths, and 1,444,636 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., U.S. Military: they have 619,078 confirmed cases, 685 confirmed deaths, and 591,443 confirmed recoveries.[xxi]

  98. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the southern border for the past 389 days and it’s been 303 days since she showed up to do the job although she has an excuse at the moment: she is among the pandemic of the vaccinated.  Fully vaxxed, fully boosted, she has COVID-19- yet again– and yet, they still want everyone to undergo vaccination.  F**k them.  Ah, well, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegal alien invaders since New Year’s Day is $739,167,760.  The cost of caring for them since the un-dynamic duo took charge is $42,484,973,503.  Next, the number of illegals pouring into the country this year is 1,181,861.  Finally, the conservative low estimate is 46,613,518.  We suspect the truer numbers are closer to 95-to-135 million illegals which is godawful bad. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  99. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Rep. Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says ‘it’s great news that the judge blocked Joe Biden from ending Title 42.’  Speaking of Title 42, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced a new plan for what happens after Title 42 goes down on May 23, 2022.  Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th district, says that ‘IF Secretary Mayorkas won’t protect the border, he must go.’  We concur.  NOW.  Next, the world-famous ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  Hence, she is unavailable to do her job which she seemingly NEVER does.

If you are aware of the King Biscuit Flower Hour series, then this one is a must-add to your collection.  The Band released a glorious archival release on June 24, 2014: “Carter Barron Amphitheater, Washington, D.C., 07-17-1976.”  This amazing concert recording came towards the end of their career, one that spanned nearly two decades, and which would then be reborn at a later date.  The Band roars all of its greatest tunes with the exception of one- the one we love the most- “Stage Fright.”  Fans of the Band give this album rave reviews which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and then make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  You will be glad you did.

  62. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate approves a $1.5 trillion tax bill the Democrats screech, and wail is going to the wealthiest Americans.  Look, the wealthiest Americans are the job creators, so STFU liberal, left-wing losers!   Meanwhile, in communist China, Beijing condemns and executes 10 accused drug smugglers and dealers yet the amount of fentanyl flowing into the U.S. from the Chi-Coms won’t end.  What is up with that?

  67. 2020 Saturday B: We now learn that the suspected Russian hack of the U.S. began as far back as March before anyone noticed anything or reported it.  Here are the government departments or entities affected by the Russian FSB thugs: (1) U.S. Treasury Dept. (2) U.S. Commerce Dept. (3) National Institute of Health (4) CISA (5) Dept. of Homeland Security (6) U.S. State Dept. (7) Pentagon- the (8) Office of POTUS (9) NASA (10) Natl. Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’
  68. 2020 Saturday C: The U.S. Congress is holding a Saturday session on government funding. President Donald J. Trump signs a stopgap spending bill to keep government up and running.  Next, the U.S. Army rejects former national security adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Retired call for martial law to figure out what the hell happened in the presidential election.   Regarding the election, Franklin Graham says, ‘I tend to believe the election was rigged or stolen.’  Elsewhere, apelike thug and former director of the CIA (and former communist) John Brennan says the Durham report is ‘trolling’ and mocks outgoing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr.  Have YOU looked in the mirror lately, Mr. Brennan?  You are a thug.   Speaking of Mr. Barr, he says ‘there was NO CIA misconduct in the Trump-Russian collusion probe.’
  69. 2020 Saturday D: In a humorous note, the Fake News Media is blubbering tears, criticizing the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-Chi-Com China Joe” Biden for closing access to them.  What the hell did you think you dumbasses?   Elsewhere, housing ‘experts’ want the eviction ban extended.  Good for them.  Regarding Chinese Virus-related problems, the GOP wants to bind Chi-Vi aid to limits on federal spending (there’s no money) which throws the outcome of the COVID-19 relief bill into doubt.  Allies of Chi-Com Joe Biden cry, “Foul!”  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the good old ‘Kung Flu,’ the Moderna vaccine has been cleared for emergency use in the United States which will spread the vaccine to greater numbers of people.   
  70. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot having continues coming to light.  He must go.  NOW!  We also learn the Chi-Com ‘100-Year Plan’ is for them to bribe, buy, or blackmail everyone around the world who is in their way.  Time to start dropping some nukes, people!   U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says, “The Democrats are too cozy with the Chi-Coms.”  She’s right.
  71. 2020 Saturday F: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw and the Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3518 with a jackpot of $16 million at stake- 10, 15, 25, 31, 33, and Mega 21.  Out of 92.010 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,020 apiece.  One of the two winning tickets was sold at an ARCO AM/PM station in Newbury Park, CA, 91320 while the other was sold at a Mega Liquor in San Gabriel, CA, 91776.   Next, here are the numbers for tonight’s Powerball Draw #804 with a jackpot of $377 million at stake: 27, 32, 34, 43, 52, and Powerball 13.  Out of 101,071 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,972.
  72. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,126,125 confirmed cases, +1,617,691, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +11,762, and 42,963,631 confirmed recoveries (again, this number is less than reported a week ago), +361,393.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,629,293 confirmed cases, UP 177,126 from yesterday’s reporting, 317,534 confirmed deaths, UP 1,765, and 7,857,661 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,121.
  73. 2020 Saturday H: 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: 1,827,535 confirmed cases, 22,509 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 281 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 224,594 confirmed cases, 3,168 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state- Ohio. Currently, they have 614,429 confirmed cases, 8,031 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor DeWine.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 372,886 confirmed cases, 3,074 confirmed deaths, and 345,589 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Mao Zedong fever, Maryland and Virginia donate doses of the vaccine to Washington, D.C.
  74. 2020 Saturday: Folks, even though it’s Saturday, everyone knows EVIL never sleeps so stay tuned for whatever shenanigans the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party in the U.S. are up to today.  Everyone knows whatever it is, it’s going be GOOD!

Saturday, December 19, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Sunday, December 19, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.

[ii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership, so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

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

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

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

[vii] See previous footnote.  

[viii] In 2019, enfeebled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues misleading the public that what President Bill Clinton was in trouble for was his ‘affair’ with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  Although that was questionable, he was in trouble for lying in the Paula Jones case as well as for suborning lying under oath in same which inevitable cost him big bucks as well as the right to practice law in his home state of Arkansas for a year.  Speaker Pelosi, STOP LYING to the American people, tell the truth or step down from office and go back home to crime-ridden San Francisco.

[ix] This guy is more of a murderous thug than even his father was.  Still President Donald J. Trump has attempted to bring him and his rat-shit country into modern times.  We shall see.

[x] In 2019 at this point, we are not sure as to whether she will give it, yet another goes or will remain along the sidelines talking shit.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

337. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, DECEMBER 03, 2021

62. 2020 Thursday A: President Donald J. Trump is NOT ruling out firing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr who seems to be MIA when it comes to doing anything about the rampant voter fraud that we have observed from one end of the country in key battleground states such as Nevada, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, and Arizona to the other.

  61. 2020 Thursday: The Senate GOP warned President-Elect “Pro-China Joe” Biden not to send whack-job leftists to Capitol Hill for Cabinet positions.

  62. 2020 Thursday A: President Donald J. Trump is NOT ruling out firing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr who seems to be MIA when it comes to doing anything about the rampant voter fraud we have observed from one end of the country in key battleground states such as Nevada, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, and Arizona.

Were it not for the Wuhan Bat Flu this year, I doubt we would have as many BIG CITY MAYORS on the list like we have this year but all of them are deserving of the award

Thursday, December 03, 2020, Today in History:

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Friday, December 03, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

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

[iv] We are not sure when we will promote the music of .38-Special but will do so when we do a big shindig for Southern rock bands.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vii] The sad thing about this story is that the NYPD was only acting on orders from City Hall that wanted to bush illicit street merchants such as Mr. Garner who were not paying their fair share to the city in taxes.  Mr. Garner gave us the phrase, “I can’t breathe!”  Overweight and fighting the cops, he died in the struggle.

[viii] Senator Harris entered the race on January 21, 2019, doing so on the 90th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Prior to her (in order) the following Democrats dropped out: (1) Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-CA; (2) Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-CO; (3) Gov. Jay Inslee, D-WA; (4) Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass.; (5) Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY; (6) Mayor Bill Di Blasio, D-NY; (7) Rep. Tim Ryan, D-OH; (8) Former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, D-TX; and (9) Mayor Wayne Messam, D-FL.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Over the course of Jethro Tull’s lengthy lifespan, Jethro Tull has delivered loads of performances, most of which have ended up in bootleg form over the decades.  Today, we have “Live in Sweden 1969,” (January 15, 2020), that presents one famed live show for the fans.  The band features  Ian Anderson (vocals, flutes, guitars, keyboards), Martin Barre (guitars), Jeffrey Hammond (bass and keyboards), John Evan (keyboards), and Clive Bunker (drums).  If you want to hear the band during its rise to popularity riding this is a good album with which to do it.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

  62. 2020 Saturday B: We now learn that the suspected Russian hack of the U.S. began as far back as March before anyone noticed anything or reported it.  Here are the government departments or entities affected by the Russian FSB thugs: (1) U.S. Treasury Dept.

Nuclear Security Administration (11) U.S. Energy Dept. and (12) three U.S. states.  Members of government are calling this an ‘act of war.’  We tend to agree; however, we believe the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, and other human garbage around the world are acting in concert and they also hacked the U.S. Presidential Election to sow as much discord and confusion as possible.  Because of this, the U.S. Dept. of State announces that it is going to close the last two U.S. consulates in Russia as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘it’s pretty clear that Russia was behind the massive hack.’
  63. 2020 Saturday C: The U.S. Congress is holding a Saturday session on government funding. President Donald J.

  64. 2020 Saturday D: In a humorous note, the Fake News Media is blubbering tears, criticizing the so-called ‘president-elect,’ “Pro-Chi-Com China Joe” Biden for closing access to them.  What the hell did you think you dumbasses?   Elsewhere, housing ‘experts’ want the eviction ban extended.  Good for them.  Regarding Chinese Virus-related problems, the GOP wants to bind Chi-Vi aid to limits on federal spending (there’s no money) which throws the outcome of the COVID-19 relief bill into doubt.  Allies of Chi-Com Joe Biden cry, “Foul!”  Speaking of the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the good old ‘Kung Flu,’ the Moderna vaccine has been cleared for emergency use in the United States which will spread the vaccine to greater numbers of people.   
  65. 2020 Saturday E: Questions continue to arise over WHY California Democratic Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell is still in the House of Representatives much less on the House Intelligence Committee when more evidence of him having a five-year-plus sexual relationship with a Chi-Com honeypot continues coming to light.  He must go.  NOW!  We also learn the Chi-Com ‘100-Year Plan’ is for them to bribe, buy, or blackmail everyone around the world who is in their way.  Time to start dropping some nukes, people!   U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says, “The Democrats are too cozy with the Chi-Coms.”  She’s right.

First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3518 with a jackpot of $16 million at stake- 10, 15, 25, 31, 33, and Mega 21.  Out of 92.010 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,020 apiece.  One of the two winning tickets was sold at an ARCO AM/PM station in Newbury Park, CA, 91320 while the other was sold at a Mega Liquor in San Gabriel, CA, 91776.   Next, here are the numbers for tonight’s Powerball Draw #804 with a jackpot of $377 million at stake: 27, 32, 34, 43, 52, and Powerball 13.  Out of 101,071 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,972.
  67. 2020 Saturday G: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s duplicitous closet pansy Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 76,126,125 confirmed cases, +1,617,691, 1,602,500, confirmed deaths, +11,762, and 42,963,631 confirmed recoveries (again, this number is less than reported a week ago), +361,393.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 17,629,293 confirmed cases, UP 177,126 from yesterday’s reporting, 317,534 confirmed deaths, UP 1,765, and 7,857,661 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,121.
  68. 2020 Saturday H: 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: 1,827,535 confirmed cases, 22,509 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,257 confirmed cases, 281 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 224,594 confirmed cases, 3,168 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state- Ohio. Currently, they have 614,429 confirmed cases, 8,031 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor DeWine.  Let’s look at Israel’s stats now that Mo is living there: 372,886 confirmed cases, 3,074 confirmed deaths, and 345,589 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Mao Zedong fever, Maryland and Virginia donate doses of the vaccine to Washington, D.C.
  69. 2020 Saturday I: Folks, even though it’s Saturday, everyone knows EVIL never sleeps so stay tuned for whatever shenanigans the Chi-Coms, their allies in Canada, Iran, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, and in the Democratic Party in the U.S. are up to today.  Everyone knows whatever it is, it’s going be GOOD!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Now that the J. Geils Band was on an upward trajectory, the band’s old record company, Atlantic Records decided what the heck, we are going to release another best of album, “Best of the J. Geils Band Two” on October 28, 1980.  Once again there were another nine tunes culled from throughout the group’s discography with the label and folks, these are great tunes.  If you have failed to get in on the ground floor with the group’s work, well, this is a superb way in which, you can do it which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and add it to your growing record collection.  Remember- wax is best and old “Pro-China Joe” Biden said in a primary debate that everyone should leave the record player on at night for their young kids and this is one of the albums you would have playing as the little tikes are trying to sleep.  This music is far better than say the music of Maroon Five or any of the modern-day crap you hear on WOKE radio stations.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY DECEMBER 19, 2020

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Saturday, December 19, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of this legendary British blues-rock band, Ten Years After, beginning on Tuesday, 01-March-2011 through Thursday, 24-March-2011.  We hope you will check them out because their music is as important today as it was 50 years ago.  Their performance at Woodstock in 1969 made them megastars.

[ii] We shared the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful with the readership beginning on Saturday, 14-September-2013 through Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  At the time, we made the oversight of not sharing the music of John B. Sebastian with the readership so we do hope we come back around to promoting him sometime in the next 15 years or so.

[iii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

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

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

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

[vii] See previous footnote.  

[viii] In 2019, enfeebled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues misleading the public that what President Bill Clinton was in trouble for was his ‘affair’ with White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.  Although that was questionable, he was in trouble for lying in the Paula Jones case as well as for suborning perjury in same which inevitable cost him big bucks as well as the right to practice law in his home state of Arkansas for a year.  Speaker Pelosi, STOP LYING to the American people, tell the truth or step down from office and go back home to crime-ridden San Francisco.

[ix] This guy is more of a murderous thug than even his father was.  Still President Donald J. Trump has attempted to bring him and his rat-shit country into modern times.  We shall see.

[x] In 2019 at this point, we are not sure as to whether she will give it yet another go or will remain along the sidelines talking shit.

Q. 1942 Thursday: The Germans are preparing to launch the strike to relieve the Sixth Army and the Fourth Panzer Army trapped in Stalingrad in a couple of days. Field Marshal Erich von Manstein has chosen the 11th Panzer Division, commanded by a tough officer, Major General Hermann Balck. The tank division is going to spearhead a diversion toward Kalach while Colonel General Hermann “Papa” Hoth and a corps from the Fourth Panzer Army would race 73 miles in an attempt to open a corridor to Stalingrad through which supplies could flow that would enable General Friedrich Paulus and his trapped troops to load up with food and ammo for the breakout. The attacks would commence tomorrow.

  60. 2020 Thursday: The Senate GOP warned President-Elect “Pro-China Joe” Biden not to send whack-job leftists to Capitol Hill for Cabinet positions.  Currently, he has the Obama-Biden “B-Team” up for various positions including Neera Tanden, an ultra-leftist, bigoted racist, for his OMB director.  She, by the way, has sought to cover her tracks on social media by deleting more than 1,000 tweets.  Additionally, David Cohen is Biden’s pick to be the next director of the CIA.  Meanwhile, here is the humorous note of the day: CNN calls out Democratic lawmakers for being hypocrites when it comes to observing their own harsh Chi-Vi restrictions.  Nearly every Democrat of note has been caught going about their normal lives while everyone has to remain indoors trembling in fear.

  61. 2020 Thursday A: President Donald J. Trump is NOT ruling out firing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr who seems to be MIA when it comes to doing anything about the rampant voter fraud we have observed from one end of the country in key battleground states such as Nevada, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, and Arizona.  Elsewhere, U.S. Navy Secretary Kenneth Braithwaite told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Vladimir Putin’s Russia has ‘re-militarized the Arctic.’  Not good.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Census Bureau has uncovered data glitches that are pushing back the release of its findings until sometime in February 2021.  It’s all about the illegal aliens.   Finally, DNI John Ratcliffe implores President-Elect Joe Biden NOT to politicize America’s intelligence-gathering agencies and to admit openly that communist China is the world’s number one threat.

  64. 2020 Thursday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 1,271,908 confirmed cases, 19,440 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 18,342 confirmed cases, 244 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 177,929 confirmed cases, 2,979 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: South Dakota- currently, they have 82,203 confirmed cases, 1,033 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence says the U.S. is ‘days away from the distribution of a vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’  Excellent, ONLY the Trump-Pence administration could have accomplished something as monumental as this.

  67. 2020 Thursday G: President Donald J. Trump awards the Congressional Medal of Freedom to former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz.  Great coach of a legendary team that never seemed to lose many games back in the 1980s.  Speaking of President Trump, he is planning to be in Georgia on Saturday campaigning for Senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler.  Elsewhere, federal law enforcement raid a house in Houston, Texas, in which, human traffickers are holding numerous illegal aliens naked, dirty, and afraid in cages.  String the traffickers up!
  68. 2020 Thursday H: We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover what scurrilous shenanigans the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party underlings are up to today- you know you are as curious as are we… we MUST HOLD THE CHI-COMS, the Canadians, the Iranians, and the damned Russians accountable for what they have done to our country. It’s coming, Canadians first!   Canada has declared WAR on us.  Send us your Dominion bosses so we can grill the living f**k out of them.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Who would ever have believed this (but if you live long enough, you are willing to try anything or do anything).  The modern lineup of Foreigner went to Switzerland, teamed up with an orchestra and a choir and did a live show featuring all the hits- and then some- in one place.  Friends, don’t knock it until you tried it- this is fascinating reproductions that in some ways reminds one of Deep Purple- one of the hardest rocking bands of all time- doing a show with the London Symphony Orchestra back in 1968, 1969, or 1970, don’t quite recall but it was the first album featuring Roger Glover and Ian Gillan.  Keyboardist Jon Lord was classically trained and so the rest of the band indulged him.  Here, founder Mick Jones takes a journey down the same path and boy, oh, boy, what an album.  Seek this one out: “Foreigner with the 21st Century Orchestra and Choir,” an album that came out on February 15, 2018 having been recorded the previous year.  Enjoy.

[vii] The sad thing about this story is that the NYPD was only acting on orders from City Hall that wanted to bush illicit street merchants such as Mr. Garner who were not paying their fair share to the city in taxes.  Mr. Garner gave us the phrase, “I can’t breathe!”  Overweight and fighting the cops, he died in the struggle.
