  51. 2013 Wednesday: France drafts a resolution on this date, which allows the Syrian government–under the control of Bashar al-Assad–can turn over its stockpiles of chemical weapons to the world community for it to destroy.  Meanwhile, the UN receives purported use of chemical weapons by the Syria militants against their own people—the news comes from Russia.

  55. 2017 Monday: In the Catalan city of Barcelona, Spain, one million Catalonians take to the streets on the state’s national holiday demanding secession from the parent country.  Things would not work out for them in the long run.  Still, the independence movement gave it a good shot.  Meanwhile, as Hurricane Irma begins moving up the coast, 7 million homes in Georgia and Texas find themselves without power and in varying degrees of distress. 
  56. 2018 Tuesday: Near Hajin, in eastern Syria, U.S. backed Syrian troops begin the final assault on the final ISIS stronghold in the war-torn country, something that would never have occurred under a President Hillary Rodham Clinton but most certainly did under President Donald J. Trump.  Light ‘em up, boys!  Meanwhile in Asiatic Russia, the Russian military commences joint military exercises with communist China, putting more than 300,000 troops in the field, their largest such endeavor since the early 1980s.  They are trying to send President Trump a message: Look at us- we’re bad.
  57. 2019 Wednesday: As usual, Palestinians are running amok after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promises that should he win next week’s snap election, he will annex one-third of the West Bank.  The Palestinians bellow that ‘this would be tantamount to a war crime.’  Look you dimwits, you are better off with the Israelis in charge than you are with Hezbollah and Hamas and the rest of the jihadi groups.  Give it a rest.  Elsewhere, it’s official: two Trump-backed Republicans in North Carolina win two special elections, elections that occurred the prior day.  Dan Bishop won the 9th Congressional District sending Democrats spinning because they honestly thought they stood a chance in a state they claim is becoming BLUE.  In the 3rd Congressional District, Greg Murphy won that race, beating another favored Democrat.  Wow.
  58. 2020 Friday: The TV ratings are in for last night’s opening game in the NFL- the Kansas City Chiefs v. the Houston Texans- had a ratings view of 16.4-percent less than last year’s opening day.  What we will say is that we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have sworn off the NFL until (1) they fire Roger Goodell and (2) come back to their senses.  IF players want to protest- which is their God-given right- do it on your off time and put your own money where your mouths are.  Otherwise, STFU you spoiled rotten sniveling bastards.  Meanwhile, the White House announces that the kingdom of Bahrain will also make peace with Israel which drives the Palestinian trash into a foaming-at-the-mouth frenzy once again.  Hey, PLO- make peace with Israel and STFU!  Also, at the White House today, President Donald J. Trump awards the Congressional Medal of Honor to U.S. Army Ranger Sgt. Maj. Thomas Payne for heroic actions in Iraq in 2015.  The unit in which Sgt. Maj. Payne served went to free approximately 70-75 Kurdish hostages being held by ISIS fecal matter.  He helped rescue many of them and would not leave the field of battle even though one building in which, hostages were being held was ablaze and collapsing all around him.  In the action, he helped kill 20 of the ISIS thugs.  Congratulations, Sgt. Maj. Payne!
  59. 2020 Friday A: New York City business leaders sign a letter to Mayor Bill Di Blasio demanding he address the ‘deteriorating conditions in the Big Apple,’ the rising crime rates, the burnt out and destroyed businesses, the dying restaurants, and bars.  Mayor Di Blasio and his colleague, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo together have destroyed one of the great states and cities of the country.  Time to recall both of them.  Elsewhere, the city of Austin, Texas, slashes its police department of one-third of its annual budget- $150 million- which leads law enforcement to erect billboards outside the city warning travelers to ‘enter at your own risk.’  The murder rate in Austin is up 63-percent this year alone.  What the hell is going on in the country?
  60. 2020 Friday B:  Big news continues to come out as to HOW the Trump-Russia Collusion investigation led by senile Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his team wiped their phones used in the investigation so as to coverup the real crimes here- the vilification and attempted destruction of a duly elected president by members of the Obama administration- including the BIG GUY himself, perhaps- so the world awaits further information.  It would appear that Andrew Weissmann, the alleged top dog who ran this phony investigation ordered his cronies to bleach as much information as they could before it fell into the hands of the U.S. Justice Department.

  64. 2020 Friday E: Wildfires continue raging across the western states what with California beset by numerous fires. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says, ‘God is mad at the people’ and that ‘climate change and global warming’ are responsible for the state’s woes.  People are dying and Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom (ever notice how hate-filled people always smile before they say ugly stuff like Newsom, Ilhan Omar, and other scumbags) among others who says he has ‘no patience for climate change deniers.’  Look moron, instead of funneling every dime into CalPERS and other state-funded retirement programs for state employees, why not do some of the necessary forestry management such as clear-cutting, removing dead undergrowth, allowing timber companies to responsibly harvest and replant, and engaging in the various water transportation and catchment systems that made our state great?  What a bunch of losers, we hope San Francisco is blown off the map by an angry God.

Trump is much-loved and the proof of this is that slobbering Joe Biden nary uttered a peep today, nothing celebrating first-responders and survivors as well as veterans of the War on Terror.  Folks, Joe Biden is a f**king disgrace.  Everyone knows who won last November.

  75. 2022 Sunday: Observation of the Day Friends, my loyalties always lied with the Constitution Party, a party we lack in the Golden State which has thrust me into the independent wings or to the Republicans.  California has a piss-poor system of elections, the so-called ‘TOP-TWO’ vote getters facing off in the General Election which means in some districts, it could be two Democrats- a crazy one and a lunatic- facing off against one another for the seat.  Much like Alaska and their indecipherable ‘ranked choice’ voting catastrophe which seems only to aid the candidates the voters DON’T want, the Top-Two system basically denies any of the state’s third parties from EVER having someone in the General Election.  The Peace and Freedom Party, the Green Party, and the American Independent Party NEVER make it past the primary elections.  Why these parties have NOT joined together in a lawsuit to take this bullshit system to the Supreme Court to have it tossed is beyond any of us.  My assumption is it tells everyone that they are truly aligned with the Democrats.  Anyhow, the ONLY way to beat this crap is for there to be a massive voter turnout.  We can get rid of this leftist scum and reclaim our state.  It’s been done before.  We must save our state and send every Democrat in statewide office into retirement and to then keep them there.  IF the Dems are going to use illegal aliens, then so should we, it’s akin to the days of the Roman Republic when candidates vying for the Senate or for Counsel bought votes.  If it’s good enough for the Dems then it’s good enough for us.  First, let’s get rid of the scum destroying our state and resurrect it like the fabled phoenix from the ashes.  Let me know what you think- Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE 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:

Like every other band that has been around from the dawn of the rock-and-roll era, there are loads of live shows that appeared as radio broadcasts.  Today, we have “Transmission Impossible Box Set,” a 3-CD collection of three different Beach Boys’ radio shows.  This album came out on May 11, 2019 and is worthy of attention from YOU.  You have a show from the 1960s, another from the 1970s, and one from the early 1980s, all of which are glorious shows to behold.  We hope you will seek this one out and to make it part of your daily listening rotation- you will be glad you did.

2022 Sunday: This past Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice released yet another embarrassing attempt at justifying the raid on Mar-a-Lago. Sadly, with all the redactions, it said nothing other than that this is yet another attempt at destroying Donald Trump. What is wrong with these people? Everything they do to only makes things worse for the Democrats.

  57. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.397 per gallon, $2.945 in Florida, $4.071 in Hawaii, and $3.899 in Washington state. [xix]    Let us look at one other location- Utah: $3.823.  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- Austria: $5.856 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,696,517,002,798 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Thailand, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75 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.

  59. 2022 Sunday: This past Friday, the U.S. Department of Justice released yet another embarrassing attempt at justifying the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  Sadly, with all the redactions, it said nothing other than that this is yet another attempt at destroying Donald Trump.  What is wrong with these people?  Everything they do to only makes things worse for the Democrats.  All this talk about the ‘red tidal wave disappearing’ is little more than a false narrative.  Every Republican I know is voting against every Democrat.  Many Democrats are voting against Democrats.  Independents are voting against Democrats.  NO one wants the garbage these socialist-communist losers are pushing, NO one.  The funny thing is, they are absolutely oblivious to it.  OBLIVIOUS.  And that’s good.  The groundswell is growing, the Dems are facing a cataclysmic loss heretofore unseen in American politics.  The only thing is, will the Joestapo come to their rescue and corrupt the 2022 Elections?  That remains to be seen.  We must stop them.  Chef Goldie McNamara.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE 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 Beach Boys did it again: released an updated version of an older album- “Friends”- on December 07, 2018.  Here is what we said: the Beach Boys continued struggling along what with Brian Wilson- principal songwriter, falsetto vocalist, and guiding light now being in a mental state of malaise.  Thus, the other Beach Boys had to step up and tackle a larger portion of the songwriting.  Still, Brian Wilson’s name shows up on many of the tracks as well as his vocals, but the album suffered poor sales.  This is not to say that the album is not a joy because it is, albeit an extremely short one.  Some say it’s the band’s first ‘TM’ or their ‘transcendental meditation album’ as it has a spiritual, upbeat flow.  The lineup on “Friends” (June 24, 1968) features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  There are some wonderful songs on this album to be sure: the title track, “Wake the World,” “Be Here in the Morning,” “When a Man Needs a Woman,” “Passing By,” and “Busy Doing Nothing.”  Well, you get all this and a whole lot more.  We hope you will seek this one out as it is a delightful record, one we wholeheartedly love, enjoy, and recommend.  Back in the 1970s, one could find it packaged with “Smiley Smile” in a two-for-one.  Now, you can get an expanded edition so check it out.

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

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

[iii] 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.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner as well as their separate solo efforts one day.

[v] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[vi] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the great Motown acts but when we do, we will do ALL of them including Aretha Franklin.

[vii] Congressman Eric Swalwell, well-known for his lack of intellect, entered the fray on Monday, April 08, 2019, and was among those sorry low-end losers who had to beg for donations so he could appear on the debate stage.  There was no way in hell that anyone would ever vote the so-called ‘Farter-in-Chief’ for anything higher than the House seat he now holds.

[viii] Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper entered the race on March 04, 2019.  His most notable contribution to the Democratic Party’s nomination process was an admission that he ‘took his mother to see the porn classic, “Deep Throat,” not knowing fully what it was,’ he claimed mom asked to see the movie.  Think what you will.  STRANGE.

[ix] Governor Jay Inslee jumped into the running on March 01, 2019, and his big thing- and only thing- was that he was going to devote 100-percent of his time dueling with climate change.  He looks, sounds, and acts like a palooka and Democratic voters saw him for the POS he is.  He did not last very long.

[x] Congressman Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, an Iraq War vet, entered the race on April 21, 2019.  He seemed like a decent guy but when everyone around you is jostling one another to see who can go bat crap crazy far-far-far-left, Congressman Moulton stood no chance at ever winning the nomination.

  62. 2019 Sunday: The government of Cuba continues to lie: due to the U.S. ‘embargo’ (remember: every other nation in the world trades with this POS communist hellhole) and hoarding by its people, the government must ration more products including vital foodstuffs such as rice and beans.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: Due to the Chinese COVID-19 Virus, Democrat governors around the country continue to extend and prolong their stay-at-home orders even though increasing numbers of Americans are beginning to fight back.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi proposes an illegal alien, Pro-Death-friendly $3 trillion Wuhan Virus relief bill which everyone with sense says is “CRAZY!”  Here are the Kung Flu COVID-19 statistics for the day (around the planet): 4,233,504 confirmed cases, 289,932 confirmed deaths, and 1,481,314 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,399,305 confirmed cases, 83,019 confirmed deaths, and 234,607 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where the AICPENDBLOG.COM has chef-authors, we start with California: 69,715 confirmed cases, 2,802 confirmed deaths, and once again, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, we have Hawaii: 635 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 563 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, we have Washington state: 17,330 confirmed cases, 962 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO reports of confirmed recoveries.   Democrat governors, we understand you are messing with the statistics so you can continue the lockdown.  You reap what you sow.  IF you are curious about the numbers in the origin nation of the Chinese Virus, they remain the same as they did two weeks ago.
  64. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 161,052,323 confirmed cases, +726,249, 3,344,095  confirmed deaths, +13,178 and 139,983,418 confirmed recoveries, +83,238.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,584,617 confirmed cases, UP 34,297 from yesterday’s reporting, 597,752 confirmed deaths, UP 808,[x] and 26,618,483 confirmed recoveries, UP 65,764.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]   
  65. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 281,782 chi-vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 180,827 deaths.   Now that the CDC says it’s ‘okay’ for kids aged 12-15 to get the shots, the Biden regime is urging parents to rush their children to the nearest drug store to get their immunizations for the Bat Fu Yuk out of Wuhan, communist China.    
  66. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,763,165 confirmed cases, 62,463 confirmed deaths, and 2,006,829 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,278,549 confirmed cases, 35,897 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,556 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,376 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 420,192 confirmed cases, 5,663 confirmed deaths, and 203,994 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Military: they have 291,757 confirmed cases, 348 confirmed deaths, and 278,457 confirmed recoveries.[xii]   
  67. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,022 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,794 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- North Macedonia, the birthplace of Alexander the Great (sorry, Greece): 154,372 cases of the virus, 5,151 confirmed deaths and 139,266 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]     
  68. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,587.66, DOWN 681.50 points (-1.99%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,031.68, DOWN 357.75 points (-2.67%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,063.04, DOWN 89.06 points (-2.14%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.65 per barrel, -0.43 (-0.65%).  The price of GOLD is $1,816.70 per troy oz., -6.10 (-0.33%) while the price of SILVER is $27.17 per troy ounce, -0.07 (-0.27%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,218.00 per troy oz, -7.90 (-0.64%) while the price of COPPER is $4.72 per pound, -0.01 (-0.26%).[xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,868.52 per troy oz, -68.71 (-2.34%).[xv] The price of RHODIUM is $27,700.00 per troy oz., -700.00 (-2.46%).[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.16.     In South Korean Won, one greenback equals 1,132.63 and in South Sudanese Pound, a buck equals 130.26 and in Sri Lankan Rupee, one dollar equals 195.50 of theirs.[xvii]    Meanwhile, Tesla, Apple, and Microsoft are driving the stock markets down.  However, credit card debt has fallen by $49 billion over the past year.  Elsewhere, U.S. consumer prices have gone up by 0.08-percent in April which does not bode well for the American people what with the Consumer Price Index up from a year ago by 4.21-percent.  This is the largest increase since 2009.  Hmmm, what does 2021 have in common with 2009?  Let’s see- Obama-Biden were in the White House and now we have the regime of Biden-Harris in the White House.  See the parallels?  In other business news, thanks to the gas shortage slowing deliveries, Chick-Fill-A is rationing its famous secret sauce.
  69. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.112 per gallon, $2.886 in Florida, $3.840 in Hawaii, and $3.522 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.820.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Egypt: $2.114 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,278,809,428,671 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 50 for ‘Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the border.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues the so-called ‘controversial’ Title 42 implemented by President Donald J. Trump back in March 2020 to close the southern border over Bat Fu Yuk concerns to all but the most essential travel.  People are asking where “Kooky Kamala” stands on the Biden regime continuing the Trump policy?  (Note- we all believe that the border remains wide open and that armies of illegal aliens continue pouring across it which is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, lining the border with minefields, laying in foo gas pits, building anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, and \anti-boat obstacles,  as well as to station fast-response units along the border.  We also believe that U.S. Special Forces MUST carry out targeted assassinations of human traffickers, smugglers, and other criminals operating along our southern border).  (Additional note- NO matter what these lying Biden regime officials say, people are still flooding across the southern border.  Period.  In April, more than 178,000 illegals were apprehended crossing the border while 6,000 illegal aliens per day are being released into the interior of the country.  Hunting licenses anyone?).[xxi]
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fighting between the Israelis and the human fecal matter in Gaza continues, thanks to the Biden regime sending billions to the Iranians and millions to the Palestinian terrorists.  Missiles are crisscrossing the border with at least 55 dead, most of whom are Palestinians.[xxii]  The Israelis have launched targeted missile strikes on the Islamic National Bank and the Finance Ministry in Gaza leveling both buildings to the ground.  Speaking of the Iranians, so-called ‘Climate Czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry swore today that he NEVER informed the Iranians of Israeli covert ops in Syria.  The Iranians claim otherwise.  Still, the Biden regime is sending a flunky from the U.S. State Department to broker some sort of peace deal between the warring sides.  Good luck.  (Note- at least befuddled old Joe says that ‘Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.  Exceptionally good, Joe, exceptionally good).
  72. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Joe Biden’s erratic policies according to a new report are giving the Chi-Coms the ‘edge’ over the United States.  We concur.  In another surprise news, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is sanctioning a Chi-Com official, Yu Hui, who USED to hold office that allowed him to persecute the Falun Gong and other religious minorities.  Wow.  Next, Secretary Blinken stressed ‘U.S. resolve’ to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  We bet Mr. Lavrov was trembling in his shoes.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– A new report says that thanks to the Chi-Coms and their release of the ‘VID around the world and to the United States, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. went back up in 2020.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is raising questions about events that have become commonplace during the China Virus pandemic such as lockdowns and restrictions, especially on religious liberties.  Elsewhere, a panel agreed that the WHO- the World Health Organization- should have greater latitude in investigating the origins of pandemics.  Currently, the WHO is in the pocket of the Beijing Bullies.  Moving on, the Buckeye State is giving vaccinated citizens the opportunity to win a lottery of $1 million.  They hope everyone will rush out to get the vaccine.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– White House reporters are lambasting the Biden regime over its lack of transparency.  Dumb asses, listen up!  First, Joe Biden can only get it together once or twice a week.  The man is senile.  Second, what you see is a continuation of the Obama-Biden regime that shut out the news media, conducted its own in-house photography sessions, and even spied and jailed reporters.  YOU OWN THIS.  They are unhappy that the White House comm team edits all quotes before they go to press.  Wow.  Sounds like Joseph Goebbels is somewhere behind the scenes…Elsewhere, 120 former U.S. military and Department of Defense officials are warning about the peril our country faces as well as that from Joe Biden’s mental fitness (or lack of it).
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Biden regime is going to provide federal COVID-19 relief aid to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, Joe Biden is going full-blown Cloward and Piven by pushing his $4.1 trillion spending bill.  He said to the BIG FOUR House and Senate leaders- Kevin McCarthy and “Cocaine  Mitch” McConnell on the right side of the aisle and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- that all he has to do is ‘to snap his (flaccid) fingers and so it shall be.’  Whoa, Joe, whoa. The GOP leaders told ‘Forgetful Joe’ moments later that ‘raising taxes on the American people is a nonstarter.’  
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  According to Newsmax, prosecutors in the Derek Chauvin case asked for an ‘upward departure’ which means that they want Chauvin to get more time than he originally would have due to the fact that he abused his power.  The judge in the case agreed and made a ruling that will allow the sentence to become harsher both for him and the other three officers awaiting trial.   Meanwhile, the POS shooter who opened up in Times Square, New York City, a few days ago and shot three people including a young child was apprehended down in Florida. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Last night, she was running her mouth and today, she is still running her mouth.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, was voted out as House GOP conference chair.  She went to the mics after being humiliated and said she ‘will work to make sure that President Donald J. Trump NEVER gets close to the White House ever again.’  WTF is wrong with you, Liz?  Just cross over to the Democrat side of the aisle, you and your father were NEVER flipping Republicans, you frigging moron.[xxiii]  Ret. Col. Denton Knapp says, ‘Cheney’s ouster was justified.’  Correct.  She is not a team player.  However, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the ‘House GOP will advance with a unified conservative vision’ as the real battle is winning the House (and Senate) back in 2022.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– Yet another Democrat domino topples, this time new tax records show that a former staffer for Senator Dianne “The Disoriented” Feinstein- Daniel Jones who runs the ultra-left-wing, pro-Marxist TDIP, aka the Democracy Integrity Project, colluded with George Soros, the globalist former Nazi now a pro-communist scumbag to fund the so-called ‘Steele Dossier,’ the phony document with which the Democrats went after President Donald J. Trump.  It is amazing as to how as time passes; more information comes to light that continues to show just what an evil, bogus sham investigation the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert S. Mueller III was.  NOTHING BUT CRAP.  Meanwhile, Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, considered to be most at risk in next year’s elections, blasts the Biden regime’s economic policies as being bad for the Granite State.  Wise up, Joe.  Even members of your party are preparing to swim against the current.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Two far-left Democratic-Socialist senators, “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, Hawaii, and “Creepy Cory” Booker, New Jersey, are planning to set up a ‘new caucus’ in the haloed halls of Congress (yeah, right), the BIPOC- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color caucus.  Wow.  Big deal.  ONLY Democrats who are ‘black, indigenous, and people of color’ will qualify while Republicans who identify with those same groups will be kept at arm’s length as though they have B.O.  What a load of crap.  Still, look at the two losers setting it up and we mean LOSERS, with a capital “L.”  Elsewhere, H.R. 1 is stuck in a Senate committee.  We hope it remains there as though it’s in a tar pit.
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: National Security News– The federal government is easing restrictions in 12 states with which to combat the gasoline shortages thanks to the cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline that runs from Texas through 16 other states ending up in Maine.  Yet, the feds do not seem to want to address the hack, claiming it’s a confidential business matter.  Uh-huh.  Experts claim that the cyberattack exposes the lack of required defenses protecting pipelines such as the Colonial pipeline. 
  81. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Rep. Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district, is demanding answers from CEO Tim Cook and Apple regarding their use of SLAVE LABOR in Chi-Com concentration camps in Xinjiang Province and elsewhere within that communist country.  Crickets. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday R: Popular Culture News– The Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inductees for 2021 are Jay-Z[xxiv], the Go-Gos[xxv], and the Foo Fighters[xxvi] who all got in on their first nomination as well as Carole King[xxvii], Todd Rundgren[xxviii], and Tina Turner[xxix].  Congratulations.  What about the Monkees?[xxx]  Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneres is giving up her TV talk show after 19 years of being a major guiding light.
  83. 2021 Wednesday S: Religion News– Catholic bishops in the U.S. are pushing back against Marxist Pope Francis edict on NOT denying Joe Biden and other wayward Pro-Death politicians by urging everyone to sign onto a petition to make sure the Hyde Amendment continues being the law of the land.  The Hyde Amendment prohibits U.S. taxpayer dollars being used to fund abortions.  (Note- Pope Francis, YOU need to resign NOW).  
  84. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3559 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 01, 19, 20, 38, 54, and Powerball 17.  Out of 127,842 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $14,328 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) Oh Those Donuts in Costa Mesa, CA 92627; (2) Safeway in Walnut Creek, CA 94596; and (3) Easy Money in San Francisco, CA 94122.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #845, the one with $168 million on the line: 01, 19, 20, 38, 54, and Powerball 17.  Out of 68,297 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $12,438 apiece.
  85. 2022 Thursday: Stick around and discover the truth with us…

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.

[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.

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

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

  58. 2013 Sunday:  Due to disorderly conduct, police in Atlanta, Georgia, arrest actress Reese Witherspoon.  Elsewhere, North Korea announces that it’s going to move two more missile launchers to its east coast for an upcoming missile test.  Of course, the entire world is shocked and horrified.   Meanwhile, Nigeria and Boko Haram jihadist thugs are doing battle with one another resulting in nearly 200 people being killed.  (Note- this is what God gave mankind the neutron bomb for: for eliminating Islamist garbage).
  59. 2014 Monday:  The New York Knicks fire Coach Mike Woodson after a season in which the Knicks began as champions and ended with elimination.  Elsewhere Russian separatists n the eastern Ukraine claim that two of their number have been pulled from a river, covered in stab wounds.  This is a horrendous outrage and of course the Russians are angry.  Like the Nazis in 1939 prior to the invasion of Poland also needed a pretext for invasion and so they engineered one.  Vladimir Putin is a good student.  (Note- the Russians probably killed a couple of Chechens).
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, a true jihadist if one ever existed, receives a 20-year stint in an Egyptian hoosegow for hundreds of protesters he had killed when he was the nation’s president.   Elsewhere, following the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is going to launch a federal investigation into the incident.

  66. 2020 Tuesday A: COVID-19 Evening Update– As of tonight, the world claims 2,563,384 confirmed cases of China’s lab-engineered virus, the Kung Flu.  The world stats show there are 177,415 confirmed deaths what with 681,477 confirmed recoveries.  IN the United States, there are 824,698 confirmed cases what with 45,297 confirmed deaths, and 75,050 confirmed recoveries.  As for the world’s ‘friends,’ the communist Chinese, they still claim 88,423 confirmed cases what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  As we say, “Communists always lie and so the Chinese continue doing so.”  Soon, they will be paying the price as almost every nation encircling the globe is suffering from this unnecessary disaster.

  68. 2021 Wednesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 250,546 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Speaking of ‘Vegetable Joe,’ he has some cockamamie plan with which to offer tax credits to people getting the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Speaking of the Bat Flu vaccines, the FDA has found multiple irregularities in the plant manufacturing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine what with peeling paint, rodent droppings, and other things in need of correction.  NO wonder people are getting flipping blood clots (not to mention that the J & J vaccine utilizes fetal tissue culled from aborted fetuses for both manufacturing and testing.  This ain’t good, folks).

  72. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.976 per gallon, $2.814 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.390 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $2.757.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,197,874,203,119 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  
  73. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ongoing Border Catastrophe– Things are going to hell along the southern border that Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, is calling up the National Guard and deploying them to his state’s border with Mexico.  In fact, Senators Mark Kelly, D-AZ, and Kyrsten Sinema support the governor’s efforts to halt the invasion.   Meanwhile, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle want to know WHEN Joe Biden or “Kooky Kamala” Harris is going to visit the border and behold the BORDER CATASTROPHE that is occurring there 24/7.  This must stop.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Wednesday G: Crime And Punishment News / U.S. Department Of Justice News–  Senile old hag, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, continues blathering on about how ‘great it was for George Floyd to give up his life and to call out for his mama’ as he lay dying beneath the knee of convicted murderer and former Police Officer Derek Chauvin.  The leftists being what they are ALWAYS require martyrs so they can forge ahead with their sick agenda and poor Mr. Floyd was just another brick in the Democratic-Socialists’ wall.  Speaker Pelosi must lose her seat in 2022.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced that the feds are launching an investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department in a renewed drive to federalize as many police departments as possible.  This is what socialist-communist societies do, they bump up local law enforcement to federal level so they can then move them around- like the People’s Republic of China- so that law enforcement has NO ties to the communities they serve which leads to greater police brutality and mistreatment of the citizenry.  You can count on it.  This is precisely what the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act (or whatever BS name it goes by) is all about, federalizing ALL local and state law enforcement.  In other crime news, following the police shooting of a young black female attacking another with a butcher knife in Columbus, Ohio, last night, Democrats and their ‘tool’s like LeBron James are screeching for blood.  Someone, please, kick LeBron’s stupid ass.  Finally, a Virginia cop was fired- we repeat, FIRED- for donating $25 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund.  WTF?  Lt. William Kelly, an internal affairs officer in the Norfolk, Virginia, police department was terminated when his superiors learned of this callous doing in a FREE country.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday H: Crime And Punishment News Ii– After the Chauvin verdict yesterday, ‘peaceful protesters,’ aka Antifa, in Portland, Oregon, assaulted people on the street, set Starbucks stores ablaze, and attacked cops on the street.  Speaking of Officer Chauvin, he is being held in protective custody, i.e., in solitary confinement, to protect him from his fellow inmates.   Meanwhile, the four detestable skanks of the Squad, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and newbie Cori “The B***h” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, are driving up race hatred across the country while having the taxpayers spend tens of thousands of dollars to PROTECT THEM.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the case of ‘comfort women’ used by Imperial Japanese forces in the Pacific during World War II, South Korea- a country from which many of the sex slaves were taken- sides with Japan.   Speaking of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in says that ‘President Donald J. Trump failed to solve the North Korean problem.’  Uh, okay, but he gave it a better shot than any president since Ronald Reagan.   Next, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that the Chi-Coms WON’T reduce carbon emissions, nor will they slow their growth as the United States will willingly do.’  He is 100-percent correct.
  77. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Administration News I– Joe Biden is sending members of his Cabinet out to the various states to shill for his INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN, the one that costs $3.2 trillion, that very few want.   Speaking of the faux president, the Associate Press reports that Joe Biden plans to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 which means higher energy costs, less energy reliability, and a diminished middle class.   Next, Joe Biden plans to use his upcoming address to a joint session of Congress supposedly sometime in May to push for POLICE REFORM across the country.   Meanwhile, a stuttering and stammering Joe Biden says that he believes the bar to ‘convict cops is too high.’   Maybe you should zip your lips until AFTER justice has occurred there, Mr. Faux President.
  78. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Book publishers, Simon & Schuster announce that they reject a petition demanding they DON’T publish a book by Vice President Mike R. Pence.  They are going to move ahead with publication, damn the torpedoes.  Next, RINO King former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, N.J., says he could run for the White House in 2024.  It will be to YOUR embarrassment there, Big Boy.  Speaking of New Jersey, they are going to permit Gender “X” on the state’s driver’s licenses and identification cards.  Oh, goodie, kowtowing to the freaks yet again.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that failing to censure Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, yesterday has weakened both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Department of Justice.  As you know, she went to Minneapolis, Minnesota, over the weekend to stir up a lynch mob and to intimidate the jury in the trial of now-convicted murderer, Derek Chauvin.
  79. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– It appears that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, is becoming vulnerable amid ongoing attacks by President Donald J. Trump.  Former Democrat-turned-Republican and former state Representative Vernon Jones, GA 91st district,  is in a powerful position to knock Governor Kemp out in the primary election of next year.  Meanwhile, ever-drooling, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is floating the idea of a BIPARTISAN January 06, 2021, Commission to get to the bottom of the False Flag, Antifa-and-Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters that then became a mob and stormed Capitol Hill.  (Note- it does not require loads of intelligence to visualize that most of those people storming the Capitol, waving Confederate flags and what not weren’t crazed leftists bent on intimidating true protesters, lawmakers, and the American people into accepting what they know was stolen: the 2020 Presidential Election).  
  80. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III–  Next, the FBI releases a report on the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, the one that occurred on June 14, 2007, in Alexandria, Virginia, when a crazed BERNIE SANDERS VOTER attacked a baseball practice for House Republicans.  The FBI decided that the slain shooter, James Hodgkinson wanted to carry out a…wait for it…suicide by cop.  That’s right, that’s what the esteemed Federal Bureau of Investigation- in the hands of ‘highly capable’ Director Chris Wray pulled out of their hat.  What a deduction.  How sad is our world today?  Our government has become fully corrupted and it’s a shocking thing to behold for patriots.
  81. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3553 with a $40 million jackpot on the line: 03, 12, 17, 41, 42, and Mega 23.  Out of 114,936 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $40,636.   The winning ticket was sold at Fast Stop in Lake View Terrace, CA 91342.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a $90 million pot up for grabs: 21, 25, 32, 63, 67, and Powerball 06.  Out of 50,586 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,206.
  82. 2021 Wednesday O: In Long Beach Township, New Jersey, former member of the Four Seasons- bassist Joe LaBracio, aka Joe Long (1965-1975)- died at age 88.

  84. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 568,290 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 203,535 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 456 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  85. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,173,641 confirmed cases, 89,980 confirmed deaths, and 8,934,741 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,939,573 confirmed cases, 73,789 confirmed deaths, and 5,806,452 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 238,065 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,479,559 confirmed cases, 12,650 confirmed deaths, and 1,439,677 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Guam: they have 47,902 confirmed cases, 354 confirmed deaths, and 47,259 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]   
  86. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,047,693 confirmed cases, 10,658 confirmed deaths, and 4,009,152 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Falklands Islands, 219th place on the list: 128 cases of the virus, 0 confirmed death and 128 confirmed recoveries.[xix]                         
  87. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,792.76, DOWN 368.03 points (-1.05%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,174.65 DOWN 278.41 points (-2.07%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,393.66, DOWN 65.79 points (-1.48%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $103.60 per barrel, -0.19 (-0.18%).  The price of GOLD is $1,953.50 per troy oz., +5.30 (+0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $24.72 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.38%).  The price of PLATINUM is $988.30 per troy oz, +0.50 (+0.05%) while the price of COPPER is $4.69 per pound, -0.02 (-0.33%).[xx]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,423.78 per troy oz., +3.92 (+0.16%).

  88. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.689 per gallon, $4.113 in Florida, $5.243 in Hawaii, and $4.684 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Massachusetts- $4.124.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 23rd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Colombia: $2.398 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,399,844,953,328 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian President Vladimir Putin is declaring ‘victory over Mariupol’ even though the Ukrainian defenders fighting in the ruins of the steel factory continue killing Russians by the score.  They will not surrender and it’s clear to any observer that Mariupol could become Putin’s Stalingrad, sort of a Putingrad.  Going to be good watching them annihilate the Russians.  In other areas where Ukrainian civilians have been victimized and crushed, the Russians are raising red victory flags.  Sounds like the Soviet Union is struggling to return for Round 2.  The Russians are preparing ‘referendums in the occupied areas’ so the grateful Ukrainians can kowtow to their Soviet masters.
  90. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Although it would be a good show of support for the United States to reopen its embassy in Kyiv, the Biden regime is resisting calls for it to do this morale-boosting step.  WTF is up with slobbering Joe?   Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says his country requires $7 billion per month to sustain his nation and its fight against the Russians.  Today, we also learned that money Joe Biden is sending to Ukraine also is helping to pay its civil service.  Wow.  In other news, Russia has slapped travel bans on Vice President Kamala Harris, the REAL PRESIDENT Ron Klain, and on Meta-Facebook’s ‘Little Mark’ Zuckerberg.
  91. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The 8th busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in Washington, D.C., today.  Keep ‘em coming.  Next, 21 red states are joining forces to stop the Biden regime ending Title 42 on May 23.  Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border for the past 384 days and it’s been 298 days since she arrived to do the job.  Since the first day of the year, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens is $707,111,130.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the Biden-Harris regime took charge is $42,452,916,873.  The number of illegals who have entered the U.S. since January 01, 2022, is an appalling 1,129,483.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the U.S. is 46,561,140.  We believe the truer number is close to 85-125 million illegal aliens. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  92. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban meets with Pope Francis with the Russo-Ukrainian War as their backdrop.  Meanwhile, mystery continues surrounding WNBA star Britney Griner’s arrest and imprisonment in Russia.  In other horrifying news, Beijing has inked deals with the Solomon Islands and with Kiribati so its ships and security personnel can use them as ‘transit sites.’  (Note- the United States fought at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands and at Tarawa in present-day Kiribati during World War II and now the Chi-Coms have built forward bases threatening not only Australia and New Zealand but Hawaii and Guam as well as continues the isolation of Taiwan).
  93. 2022 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– U.S. Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, Dr. Mehmet Oz, says, ‘it’s time to for the U.S. to get back to reality on COVID-19.’  Next, the U.S. claims it’s extending COVID-19 vaccine mandates for illegal aliens at the southern border.  Uh, okay, sure you are.  Illegals can run around without following any COVID-19 mandates while the Biden regime is appealing the judge’s recent ruling ending mask mandates on public transit.
  94. 2022 Thursday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $49.11 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.39 (3) Novavax: $48.80 (4) Merck & Company: $86.23 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.36  (6) BioNTech: $147.84 (7) Moderna: $144.50.

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

[i] 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.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

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

[iv] 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.

[v] We promoted “Led Zeppelin IV” on Saturday, 12-July-2014.  This ranks among the greatest albums of all time.

[vi] This whack-job girl- Greta Thunberg- should get some sort of mental and emotional aid because she and other young people like her have been indoctrinated by people seeking to deploy them to carry out their Marxist agenda.

  82. 2021 Monday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II– As Russian troops and armored units continue to amass along the eastern border of the Ukraine, Ukraine and NATO are going to hold joint military drills.  Many believe that Vladimir Putin- a man, who by the way, signed legislation into law today that will allow him to rule with an iron fist until 2036- is testing senile old Joe Biden to see how far he can push the old coot before the U.S. responds.  This is coming at a time when Russia is cementing its claim to many parts of the Arctic just as communist China, Iran, North Korea, and other nations are behaving aggressively to both the U.S. and to other nations around the globe.  We believe we are witnessing a new Axis alliance which will conquer the world unfolding before our very eyes.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band reformed in the early 1980s and went on the road with four of five members onboard: Levon Helm (drums, vocals, mandolins, and percussion), Rick Danko (fiddle, bass, vocals, guitars), Richard Manuel (pianos and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards, saxophones).  Joining them are the Cate Brothers and members of their band and the subsequent archival release we have for you today is “Live in Tokyo 1983” which came out on March 30, 2003.  We have two glorious discs featuring the Band’s classic tracks along with material from the reformed group.  This is a fabulous album that encapsulates a glorious time, one that might have been even better had Robbie Robertson decided to rejoin his mates but then, water under the bridge is water under the bridge.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We shared the music of the Hollies with the world beginning on Monday, 29-August-2016 through Thursday, 03-November-2016.

[ii] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012.  You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.

[iii] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.

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

[v] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[vi] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

[vii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included the Jeff Beck Group, Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[xi] Political strategist Dick Morris says the entire thing is about collectivizing the American worker by forcing everyone to join labor unions.  Amen, Dick!

[xii] Once again, the Democrats play one component of the identity politics group against another so they can then send Asian-Americans (and Pacific Islanders) out into the streets demanding a STOP to Asian HATE.  Only problem with having members of the black community to commit your violent crimes is that unless they dress in whiteface, we know who they are, and we know who’s directing them: DEMOCRATS.

[xiii] Speaking of Arizona, the Democrat-controlled Fake News Media is blasting Arizona over its recount of all votes in the 2020 Presidential Election.  Hey, Dems, if you have nothing to hide, what the f**k are you frightened of? 

[xiv] Speaking of Governor Ron DeSantis, CBS’ “60 Minutes” attempted to twist an interview done with him at a news conference by rearranging it to suit their agenda and their narrative.  Unluckily for them, the Florida governor had his people film the entire event so he could show the TRUTH.  Come on, Fake News Media, when are you going to learn your lessons.

[xv] Right now, PepsiCo® stands to gain BIG unless, they, too, join the cavalcade of WOKEISM f**king up our country.

[xvi] These flipping people are entering the Nazi-Fascist period in their political history when the power of the state supplants all other rights including worship services.  Canada is now an enemy of the United States and of free people everywhere.

2009 Friday: The economy continues to crash and burn in the United States as another 663,000 jobs fall by the wayside thanks to the Dems having engineered the housing crisis so as to get a Democrat elected in 2008.

  20. 1922 Monday: In the USSR, Josef Stalin becomes general secretary of the Communist Party.  Lenin, suffering from poor health did not want to appoint his far more murderous comrade Stalin to this post but Stalin was ‘caretaker’ for the ailing revolutionary.  Soon, Stalin would begin consolidating his power.

  28. 1943 Saturday: Richard Manuel, future pianist, and vocalist with the Band[i] was born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, on this date.  Meanwhile, a sad incident occurs in Wellington, New Zealand, when U.S. Marines got into a fight with New Zealand troops of Maori origin.  The Marines did not want them entering the servicemen’s club.

  68. 2020 Friday: Acting U.S. Secretary for the Navy Thomas Modly fires the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt due to his lack of military discipline as well as situational awareness around the issue of security.  Captain Brett Crozier- playing politics to the max- announces that 100-plus members of his crew have shown positive for China’s COVID-19 lab-engineered virus.  He ordered the ship- after spending a week’s time in Vietnam- to put into port in Guam where approximately 3,000 members of the 5,000-person crew will go into isolation.  Captain Crozier, instead of discreetly alerting top Navy brass about the problem, put the information into a memo, one he copied to 20-to-30 people, one of whom handed it over to the news media in the captain’s hometown of San Francisco[viii].  The information alerted the nation’s enemies that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt was NOT battle-ready.  WTF?  Meanwhile, COVID-19 statistics at the beginning of the day for the planet come in at 1,026,974 confirmed cases with 53,975 confirmed deaths.  In the United States, the numbers stand at 245,573 confirmed cases what with 6,058 confirmed deaths.   As for the DOW Jones Industrial Average, it was down early in the day by 415.82 points sitting at 21,000.50 points at 8:00 A.M. PDT.  Late in the day, President Trump fired Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community ‘watchdog,’ most likely over all the FISA abuses that occurred in the plot to remove the 45th president for being a ‘Russian agent,’ since proven to be nothing more than an attempted coup.  Good riddance, you POS.
  69. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 NEWS– Rasmussen releases the results of a new poll that says a vast majority of Americans oppose any type of COVID-19 passport.  Period.   Elsewhere, a big hubbub continues in Vermont where Governor Phil Scott, R-VT, has released his plan for everyone age 16 and up and who identifies as black, Native American, or any other minority- BUT NO WHITES- can come in and receive their Chi-Vi vaccines.  As Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says, ‘anytime white liberals tell black folks they should do something for their own good is when it’s time to turn tail and run like hell.’  No thank you, Governor Scott. 
  70. 2021 Saturday A: GEORGIA POLITICS– Governor Brian Kemp comes out today and before a mixed crowd of our fellow citizens lambasted Major League Baseball’s decision to pull BOTH the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and the MLB Draft.  He explains the law and urges everyone to read the law.  Even hardcore Peach State Democrats such as Senator Jon Ossoff and Stacey Abrams blasted the MLB for doing this to the state.  There is NOTHING wrong with this law.  As Governor Kemp says, ‘cancel culture must end because if you don’t think it’s NOT going to come for you, you are sadly mistaken.’
  71. 2021 Saturday B: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– Apparently, the Biden administration is going to negotiate a nuclear deal with the belligerent Iranians in Vienna, Austria.  Good luck.   Meanwhile, the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Dwight D. Eisenhower passed through the newly reopened Suez Canal. 
  72. 2021 Saturday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame begins airing his new special on the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election, “Scientific Proof,” in which he points out the massive body of evidence that shows exactly how the same algorithms were applied from one end of the country to the other flipping elections using information from the 2010 U.S. Census.   It is rather mystifying (yeah, right) how the same algorithms and the same spikes at the same times occurred in each of the states the Biden-Harris campaign ‘won’ the election.  This is not good, and we must get to the truth.  Then, we must figure out how to expel a FRAUDULENT PRESIDENT from the White House.  No wonder we have a ‘Fort Pelosi’ in Washington, D.C., and no wonder they sent out a crazed Nation of Islam member yesterday to commit a criminal act so the fort could remain standing.  Just saying, folks.
  73. 2021 Saturday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Texas is going to start focusing on securing its elections in the Lone Star State so Democrats won’t be able to interfere or to steal in its elections.  Good for you.  Next, 13 bipartisan states are pushing back on the Biden administration for all the insane laws they are trying to stuff down the throats of free Americans.  Moving on, recent statistics show that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, aka the Fly, DS-NY 14th congressional district, is among the least effective Democrats in Congress among their 240 Democratic members.  However, she is ranked slightly higher than House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who we believe is ranked at number #237.   Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, she is extending proxy voting until May 19 so any timid members can phone in their votes.  Speaking of voting, Wyoming passes a voting law requiring Voter ID.
  74. 2021 Saturday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka “Sleep-Her-Way-to-the-Top,” Harris is being pressed on holding a formal press conference on the border crisis now that she has been delegated the “Border Czar.”  No one knows where the overly mirthful “Kooky” is?   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that Joe Biden focusing on the WOKE agenda is putting our national security at risk.  You had better believe it.  Next, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, has signed a bill permitting its residents to carry firearms sans a permit.  Democrats are livid.  Finally, Joe Biden is still working at staffing his administration with loads more WOKE, far-left, liberal Democrats, almost all of whom are WHITE men.  Say it ain’t so.
  75. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will drive taxes way up while sending more American jobs overseas for good as well as lowering wages and minimizing benefits.’  Congressman Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘most people support infrastructure but there is so much crap stuffed into the bill such as making ‘school lunches green’ that it’s a mess on steroids.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that the (bogus) allegations launched against Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district could be a ‘smear job.’[ix]
  76. 2021 Saturday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS V– After Joe Biden lectured the American people as to HOW MANY people they could have in their homes on Easter Sunday, he now is taking incoming fire from the very same American people for his plans to have the entire Biden Clan- every single crooked one of them- in a big family get-together at Camp David.  There you go: liberal hypocrisy on display.  Next, there are rumors that the two underage skanks that murdered the Uber Eats driver earlier this week in Washington, D.C., and showed absolutely NO remorse are going to get a plea deal.  Lock the slut bags up.   Next, rapper DMX is in the hospital following a drug-induced heart attack.  Fine upstanding member of the community to be sure.  Finally, a North Carolina house party gone wild occurred early this morning when 3 people were shot dead, 4 wounded, and the rest in the wind.  How many mass shootings have now occurred under the Biden regime?  
  77. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 130,643,579 confirmed cases, +541,809, 2,844,807  confirmed deaths, +8,587, and 74,042,059 confirmed recoveries, +358,084.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,884,407 confirmed cases, up 58,026 same as yesterday’s reporting, 560,220 confirmed deaths, UP 704, and 118,737,319 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.[x] 
  78. 2021 Saturday I: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 231,707 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  FROZEN FIGURES TODAY…

  81. 2021 Saturday L: LIMITED ECONOMIC NEWS DUE TO HOLY SATURDAY– Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.29.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Cambodian Riel, one greenback equals 4,037.00.  In Canadian dollars, one U.S. dollar equals 1.26 of theirs.[xii]  Ether rises as rally in cryptocurrencies continues unabated.

[i] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

[ii] We began promoting the music of not only the Spencer Davis Group but also Traffic, 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.

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[iv] 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.

[v] See previous.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[vii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[viii] Coincidentally the congressional district represented by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

[ix] The Democrats ALWAYS tip their hands as to whom they fear by the bogus allegations they launch at their targets.  Anyone remember former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin?  The Democrats did EVERYTHING they could to destroy her, so terrified of her were they.

  68. 2019 Wednesday: President Donald J. Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort receives and additional 43 months in jail on top of his 47 months for tax evasion and other Deep State-instigated and accused crimes.  Time for the president to pardon the guy.  Meanwhile, President Trump establishes the home of civil rights activists Medgar and Mylie Evers as a national monument in their hometown of Jackson, Mississippi.  Finally, POS California Governor Gavin Newsom- facing recall the following year- declares an indefinite moratorium on the death penalty claiming it discriminates against ‘marginalized communities.’
  69. 2020 Friday: Democrats and the Trump administration continue trying to hammer out a deal that will bring real relief to the American people combatting the Chinese-caused Wuhan Virus, aka COVID-19, which is sweeping the world.  The Democrats continue trying to expand the size of government and to stick in things like additional funding for abortion and other crazy things and the Trump administration and the GOP continue smacking them back and knocking them down.  What is up with the Democrats?  No one knows but they are a bunch of sick f**ks.  Meanwhile, President Trump addresses reporters at the White House and some of the assembled reporters seem eager to know if the president himself might be infected.  Horrible people.  Finally, the State Department ordered the Chinese ambassador to the United States to shut the hell up about trying to connect the U.S. Army to the outbreak of coronavirus that seemingly spilled out of that nation’s ONLY biowarfare lab.  The moratorium on air flights from Europe to the U.S. begins tonight at midnight.
  70. 2021 Saturday: DAY 53 of the BIDEN REGIME…these fools think they are going to confiscate our firearms.  They can try.  The DCCC is launching an ad blitz on television so the Biden administration can take a ‘victory lap’ as though somehow, THEY are the ones who created the vaccines and distributed them to the public.  In fact, they created a commercial showing every living ex-president and former first lady- with the exception of the Trumps!- going on about how miraculous it was we produced several COVID-19 vaccines.  Wow.  Talk about envy, jealousy, and hatred (and do you know what?  It won’t surprise us to see Jeb Bush throw his hat into the ring in 2023.  We agree with what the Reverend Jesse Jackson said several years back: ‘stay out’ d-bushes!’  Amen.).   Note- Joe Biden held a Democrats-only celebration of the ‘Chi-Vi Relief Bill’ in the White House Rose Garden yesterday which pissed off all the Republicans.
  71. 2021 Saturday A: The U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service announce that the Biden COVID-19 relief checks are getting underway, perhaps as early as this weekend.  We recall Joe saying before he became president that everyone was going to get $2,000 checks and not $1,400 checks.  Then, they combined the Joe’s payments with President Trump’s payments which means we already got the $600 and now the $1,400 is on the way.  What a scam.  This is taxpayer money, so we are getting our own money back PLUS we’ll have to pay taxes on the money back to the government.  This is the Democratic Party’s infamous money-go-round.  Now, they’re talking about a $4 trillion infrastructure bill- who’s going to do the majority of the work?  Chi-Coms like they do the California High-Speed Rail boondoggle.  All a scam…
  72. 2021 Saturday B: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says, ‘the Dems are still seeking to take control of U.S. Elections.’  We know this, Mitch.  The question is this: HOW will they circumvent the U.S. Constitution and when H.R. 1 arrives at the U.S. Supreme Court under challenge, what will Chief Justice John Roberts do?  Meanwhile, Republican senators continue badgering their Democrat counterparts and the Biden administration as to when they are going to remove the fencing and razor wire surrounding the U.S. Capitol and White House and when the troops are going to go home?  That phony POS General Russell Honoré says the Capitol’s defense requires 2,500 troops at all times around it; yet only 500 have volunteered to remain?  We guess the ones wanting to return home must be the evil Trumpsters the general seeks to excise like cancer from the U.S. military.  He should remember this: there are more of us than there are of YOU,  general.
  73. 2021 Saturday C: Part of General Honoré’s plan is to remove guns from the American people.  The Democrat sponsored bill seeks to ban ALL military-style assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.  Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-CA, claims the American people who already own such guns and accessories will be able to keep them, but we know that’s all bulls**t.  If they get this through without pushback, those ‘rights’ will vanish, too.  They also want background checks which they always demand but everyone who gets firearms- unless they’re thugs- undergoes background checks.  We prefer ‘somebody stole our guns.’  F**k anyone seeking to take away our 2nd amendment rights.
  74.  2021 Saturday D: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is backing a new process in his home state that would change how vacancies would be filled within the state if an opening arises.  It would strip the governor- who in this case happens to be Democrat Andy Beshear- of the ability to put a politician of his choice into a vacancy should one arise and permit the heavily GOP-controlled legislature in the driver’s seat.  We like this and we hope the bill becomes law.  The only reason Beshear won the seat back in 2018 is that everyone despised the Republican who held the seat- Matt Bevin- at the time.  
  75. 2021 Saturday E: The FCC designates FIVE Chi-Com tech companies as inimical to U.S. national security interests: Huawei, ZTE, Hytera Communications, Hangzhou Hikvision Digital Technology and Dahua Technology.  Each of these companies serves the Ministry of State Security in Beijing, monitoring the globe on behalf of the Chi-Com leadership.  Not good.  In other U.S. national security news, the southern border is still under assault by a tidal wave of illegal aliens from Central America as well as from across the world.  In all of 2019, the Trump administration had ONLY 2,600 illegal alien minors in custody while the Biden administration in just 53 days has 3,200 illegal aliens brats locked up in over-filled containers doing nothing.  Where are all the Democrats screaming and hollering about their mistreatment?  Where are the fake news reporters?  Why has the Biden administration forbidden cameras in the facilities?  We say load them onto buses and deport them NOW.   Even the Mexican president is blasting Joe Biden.  “Trump did a far better job dealing with illegal immigration” or words to that effect.
  76. 2021 Saturday F: The U.S. Department of Justice plans on filing more than 400 cases against the ‘insurrectionists’ that stormed the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.  We suspect the Antifa, and Black Lives Matter scum will somehow be released on their own recognizance whereas any true Trump supporters will remain in solitary confinement after the judge throws the book at them.  Such are fascist countries.   In other Joe Biden news, the National Parks Service BANS fireworks at Mt. Rushmore this year.   Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Gottlieb who led the FDA during the Trump administration says, “Americans will be gathering before the Fourth of July.”  Joe Biden had said earlier in the week that we would be ‘lucky’ if we could gather in small groups.  F**k that, too.  The country is getting ready to erupt.  Soon.
  77. 2021 Saturday G: In other news, Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence announce the birth of their first grandchild.  Next, apparently the Portland, Oregon, cops took the fight to the Antifa human scum and kept them in check after a rough couple of days before.  We hope they begin cracking some skulls and run these scumbags out of the state.  Elsewhere, the Russian cops detain 200 people who were attending an opposition forum.  We learned yesterday that Putin’s No. 1 critic- Alexei Navalny- was moved from a prison near Moscow to an undisclosed black site.  These people want to see him freed.  Now, they probably are going to be joining him.
  78. 2021 Saturday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,469,346 confirmed cases, +445,489, 2,647,229, confirmed deaths, +8,342, and 67,621,472 confirmed recoveries, +252,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,633,697 confirmed cases, up 126,711 from yesterday’s reporting, 538,918 confirmed deaths, UP 3,160, and 115,379,301 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.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 210,441 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Senile Joe, in another 12 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the frigging ‘VID.
  79. 2021 Saturday I: 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: 3,616,872 confirmed cases, 55,336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 450 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 351,419 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- North Dakota, aka the Peace Garden State: currently, they have 100,973 confirmed cases, 1,488 confirmed deaths, and 98,797 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 817,799 confirmed cases, 5,988 confirmed deaths, and 776,099 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Peru, the home of the Incan Empire at least until Francisco Pizarro arrived on scene: 1,402,610 cases of the old Hubei Hooey, 48,664 confirmed deaths, and 1,308,175 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, why even bother- they’re liars. 
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.824 per gallon, $3.543 in Hawaii, and $3.252 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe, how about allowing fracking to continue as well as the Keystone XL Pipeline?  It would be beneficial for the people of this country.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,048,361,528,794 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: Here are the results for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3542 with a $28 million jackpot on the line: 03, 07, 08, 13, 21, and Mega 19.  Out of 117,459 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,731.  The 5/5 ticket was sold at La Positas Liquor & Market in Santa Barbara, CA 93105.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #828 with a $169 million jackpot up for grabs- 05, 11, 51, 56, 61, and Powerball 02.  Out of 76,264 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $10,854 apiece.
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Famed middleweight boxing champion “Marvelous Marvin” Hagler died from unexpected causes at age 66.  At one time, he would hold the WBA, WBC, IBF, and The Ring magazine middleweight boxing titles of the world while compiling a pro record of 67 fights, 62 wins (52 KOs), 3 losses, and 2 draws.
  83. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned with his third solo album, “American Son,” on June 17, 1980, which did much to boost the singer/musician’s solo career.  There is no questioning his unique powerful voice, Helm could belt them out with the best of them and sang many of the Band’s most notable songs.  Here- like the best of vocalists, he reinterprets the works of others and does one hell of a job.  Joining Levon Helm (drums, vocals, harmonicas) are Buddy Emmons (perhaps the foremost pedal steel guitarist of our day), Muscle Shoals, Alabama, session drummer Jerry Carrigan, and an ever-growing cast of numerous other talented musicians and vocalists to round out the sound.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do which is a great deal.  Seek it out now.

  62. 2021 Saturday A: In other California news, the California Supreme Court ends adult trials for teens under the age of 16.   In other fascinating news, the FBI confirms a report from February 21, 2021, one in which pilots aboard American Airlines Flight 2292 reported seeing a long, cylindrical, fast-moving object moving alongside and then above them.  U.S. military and aviation authorities said there was nothing in the New Mexican skies at the time of the report.  It proves yet again that UFO reports continue to increase which means, it could either be a “flap year” or it could be the beginning of something no one wants to see but which might unify the world: an off-world threat.
  63. 2021 Saturday B: Vice President Kamala Harris is NOT planning to overrule the Senate Parliamentarian’s decision NOT to allow inclusion of the $15 per hour minimum wage in the Chi-Vi relief bill the House Democrats manage to pass last night by a slim margin.   Critics claim that the ‘relief bill’ will resemble the Obama “Porkulus” back in 2009 that the Democrats used as a slush fund to fulfill campaign promises made to unions and other connected persons and companies while doing nothing for the average American.  What else is new? 
  64. 2021 Saturday C: Burmese cops in Myanmar launch a concerted effort across the troubled Southeast Asian nation in an effort to quell the ongoing protests that have disrupted the country since the military junta in charge launched a coup against the democratically elected leaders.   In other foreign news, reports declare it to be ‘official’- Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the ‘hit’ on Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Turkey back in 2018.

  66. 2021 Saturday E: NOTE- in the White House 39 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 186,629 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 46,914 people, half of them in nursing homes.   Speaking of the Beijing Bat Bug, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine could soon go into action around the United States thanks to the FDA giving it emergency use approval.
  67. 2021 Saturday F: 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: 3,561,812 confirmed cases, 51,941 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 437 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 341,941 confirmed cases, 5,024 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Utah.  Currently, they have 370,770 confirmed cases, 1,929 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 773,261 confirmed cases, 5,726 confirmed deaths, and 727,779 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Iran.  Currently, they have  1,623,159 confirmed cases, 59,980 confirmed deaths, and 1,386,534 confirmed recoveries. 
  68. 2021 Saturday G: At CPAC, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, applauds President Donald J. Trump for standing up for conservative beliefs and for continuing to stand up for conservative beliefs.  Meanwhile, as documents continue to appear, the American people are learning additional information on how the Federal Bureau of Investigation did everything it could to insinuate intelligence agents into the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey says his state is going to do everything it can to push back on the radical left-wing agenda the Biden-Harris administration is pushing such as the destruction of domestic energy production.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump endorses former aide Max Miller to primary RINO POS Congressman Anthony Gonzalez who voted for the second impeachment in 2022. 
  69. 2021 Saturday H: Leftists continue whining about ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s ‘reckless bombing’ of Iranian militants in eastern Syria earlier in the week.  Even far-left site, Salon blasts Biden for having carried out these airstrikes, saying this is not the foreign policy we expected.’  You stupid dolts!  Don’t you understand that President Donald J. Trump was trying to extricate the United States from wars around the world whereas we predict- pat attention to this- that by the end of the year, Joe Biden will have us in a raging war, just like Lyndon Baines Johnson upped the ante in Vietnam that we lost far too many soldiers.  LBJ promised he would pull the United States out of Southeast Asia.  What he gave them in return were more body bags coming home.  
  70. 2021 Saturday I: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3538 with a $24 million pot on the line: 03, 08, 22, 28, 34, and Mega 22.  Out of 108,946 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $38,895.  The winning ticket was sold in Chula Vista, CA, 91913 at a 7/11.   Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #824 with a jackpot of $85 million at stake: 02, 28, 31, 44, 52, and Powerball 18.   Out of 66,849 winning tickets, the highest winners were 34 people who had FOUR numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $543 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next live effort by Fairport Convention was the wonderful “Off the Desk 2020” (April 26, 2021). As always, these musical veterans deliver a powerful live show that sees them draw millions of fans to their music year after year.  People hunger for the OLD music because much of the new music- ahem, like Maroon Five, the Jonas Brothers, and other twits SUCKS. The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 22 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

  30. : As things go from bad to worse for Axis ally Finland- Red Air Force bombers are attacking the capitol city of Helsinki- the Finns begin putting out feelers seeking peace.  Meanwhile, the major U.S. bombing campaign of the Third Reich- the so-called ‘Big Week’ in which U.S. bombers supported by P-51 Mustang fighters were able to deliver big payloads with far fewer losses.  The ability of the Mustangs to fly long distances- escorting the bombers to and from their targets- cut losses by astronomical numbers.

Trump’s nominee for secretary of the U.S. Navy- Phillip Bilden- withdraws his name from consideration noting that his business interests and his government post would cause conflicts of interest.
  61. 2018 Monday: A 7.5-magnitude earthquake in Papua-New Guinea claims the lives of at least 100 locals and injures hundreds more.  Meanwhile, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto cancels an upcoming trip to the United States to meet with President Donald J. Trump after the two had a heated phone call.  Most likely, it was over halting the illegal alien invasion of the United States and who was going to help pay for the wall along the southern border.
  62. 2019 Tuesday: The U.S. Health Department receives claims of more than 4,500 child abuse allegations by illegal alien kids as they travel to the United States while the U.S. Justice Department receives another 1,300.  Kids, the best way to avoid getting raped on the way to the United States by illegal alien coyotes is to stay the f**k home!  Meanwhile, the city of Venice, Italy, introduces a tax on visitors per day.  Elsewhere, Kim Jong Un visits the North Korean embassy in Hanoi, Vietnam, while Air Force One lands in the country with President Donald J. Trump aboard.
  63. 2020 Wednesday: Although it won’t mollify the Democrats, President Trump and members of his administration held a news conference in which, they laid out what the government is doing to prevent the spread of the coronavirus which now is on every continent with the exception of Antarctica.  Although not killing people outside of China, there have been some deaths here and there.  It would make sense that liberal states around the nation would aid ICE in rounding up illegal aliens, housing the homeless, rehabilitating the drug-addicted, and cleaning up the streets.  What is clear is that it behooves everyone to set their politics aside and to get together to stop the spread of this potentially deadly disease given to the world by the communist S-Hole country of China.  Meanwhile, a mass shooting takes place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at a Molson Coors brewery operation.  We believe five people are dead.
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: Italy says its cases are close to 450 what with another death, thanks to the rampaging COVID-19 pandemic engulfing the world.  Austria is beginning to shut some schools in its country while in the United States, the Chi-Com Flu is traveling down the West Coast of the United States.  Elsewhere, Brazil, Greece, Romania, Georgia, and other nations begin reporting their first cases while Spain announces its first non-tourist-related case thanks to the Panda Pandemic that ‘somehow’ escaped the Wuhan Institute of Virology.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives passes the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act by a vote of 410-4.  This is a celebration of WOKENESS when the bill should have been passed more than half-a-century ago.  In case the Dems are unaware of this little tidbit, NO one has been lynched in the country in five-plus decades.  Excellent work, imbeciles[vii].
  65. 2021 Friday: Day 38 of the Biden Regime- House Democrats are demanding to know the legal rationales behind the U.S. military launching airstrikes on Iranian-backed Shiite militia groups (can we be honest here- Quds Force killers)- the night before.  U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said, ‘it had to be done to pay them back for their rocket attacks against our forces.’  What more do you need, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi?   Regarding the strike on the Iranian scum, Axios reports that the Biden administration informed Israel ahead of the airstrikes.  Meanwhile, in other important House of Representatives news, the Dems are strengthening protections for the LGBTQIA+ community (as though they didn’t already have enough).  Ah, well, first things first.   Moreover, Speaker Pelosi proclaims the demand for the minimum wage going to $15 per hour is NOT going to be yanked from the $1.9 trillion Chi-Com Virus relief bill, even though the House parliamentarian says it cannot remain a part of the bill if being passed as a budgetary bill.
  66. 2021 Friday A: In a stunning turn of events, “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that ‘if Donald Trump is the GOP nominee in 2024, he’ll be right there beside him.’  Wow.   What a guy, wishy-washy like other squishy Republicans.   In other news, CPAC is underway today with a number of solid speakers such as Senators Ted Cruz and Rick Scott as well as Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA and Congressman Matt Gaetz.  Conspicuous in their absence are “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Nikki Haley, Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, and Mike Pence.  Hmmm.  We are surprised at the former vice president’s absence whereas the other ones, they most likely would receive massive loads of boos and other negative speech. 
  67. 2021 Friday B:  Speaking of CPAC, it’s interesting to note that Ronald Reagan set the Conservative Political Action Committee in motion back in 1974 so that conservatives would have a voice.  RINOs were a problem back then, too.  Regarding RINOs, Liz Cheney’s poll numbers continue to plummet especially after her comments earlier in the week still lambasting President Donald J. Trump for what happened on January 6, 2021, the day the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter mob infiltrated Trump supporters and stormed the capitol in one of the largest FALSE FLAG operations in U.S. history.  In other important news, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, has put forth a bill that will prohibit court packing.[viii] 
  68. 2021 Friday C: Far-left activists are gathering outside the Capitol demanding the mentally frail House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and her fellow Democratic-Socialists to include a Basic Minimum Income in the bill so they can all sit at home, smoking dope and drinking booze, fornicating with one another, and bringing another generation of bastards into the world, bastards for whom will be uncared.  Speaking of Democrats, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, has labeled the Dems as ‘hypocrites’ on the border what with their dumping of illegal alien brats into cages and holding pens once again.  It only matters when a Republican is in the White House when a Democrat is, there is no adverse or hostile news coverage, no pictures of a snot-nosed, tears-flowing Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, wailing over her peeps being locked in cages.  Speaking of illegal alien brats, the Border Patrol is expecting a tidal wave of young people reaching the southern border in the next couple of weeks.  We say, “Lay in minefields.”
  69. 2021 Friday D: The Biden administration is going to launch a major push to get Americans onboard for getting their Chi-Vi shots.  Why, we’re not exactly clear, seeing as how the ‘Biden administration’ is sending millions of doses intended for Americans overseas to the Third World via the U.N.-sponsored COVAX program.  Most believe the Biden administration is doing this in some misguided way of getting back at ‘whitey.’   Elsewhere, two U.S. warships in the Middle East find themselves beset by a rising number of Xi Jinping Bat Flu cases.   In other Wuhan Virus Crisis news, the U.S. is set to buy at least 100,000 doses of Eli Lilly’s COVID-19 antibody treatment.   In other medical research-related news, a scientist says there is fear of declining fertility rates due to lower sperm counts in men.  All one need do is to ask WHAT is in our foods and what the hell is taking place in the skies above us every day as chem trails crisscross the skies like massive spiders’ webs. 
  70. 2021 Friday E: President Donald J. Trump is preparing to launch a massive Super PAC.  He has tapped Corey Lewandowski to run it for him.  Speaking of Mr. Trump, he is supporting Kansas Senator Jerry Moran’s run for another term in the Senate representing that state.   At CPAC, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says, “Trump ain’t going nowhere anytime soon.”  At the same forum, Senator Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, says, “Conservatives will always defend the United States.”   Donald Trump Jr. pointed out that in less than 40 days, the U.S. is bombing targets in the Middle East once again. 
  71. 2021 Friday F: In foreign news, we learn via leaked emails that the UNITED NATIONS has for years handed over information related to human rights activists to communist China, to the Ministry of State Security, no matter the price to their personal safety.  Folks, this is all the more reason to boot the United Nations out of the United States and let them relocate to the European Union, to Russia, to India, or to communist f**king China.  Speaking of the MSS, TikTok agrees to pay $92 billion to settle lawsuits lodged against the Chi-Com intelligence-gathering social media app over its accumulation of its users data and then handing it over to Beijing.  Trump was correct to go after these communist scumbags and the bogus ‘social media app’ used by millions of low IQ youngsters to post nude photos of themselves. 
  72. 2021 Friday G: A report reveals that Boeing was going to strengthen the covers surrounding the housing of their Pratt and Whitney 4000 engines on their 777 airliners prior to the recent problems several of their planes had such as last week’s mishap over Denver, Colorado, where parts of an engine cover came apart and drifted down atop Denver’s citizens.   In other business news, COSTCO is getting aboard with increasing its starting wages to $16 per hour.   Another report suggests ‘personal incomes were up by 10-percent thanks to government stimulus checks.’   Finally, Mike Lindell of My Pillow asks Dominion Voting Systems who are suing him for more than a billion dollars over Lindell pointing out just how corrupt their voting machines coupled with Smartmatic software were in the 2020 Elections.  Lindell asks Dominion, “WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO HIDE?”  We look forward to this case going to court because then, ALL the evidence of the crookedness of last year’s November elections will hit the presses like bat guano hitting the proverbial fan.  S**t will be splattered everywhere, and it won’t be Mr. Lindell the one in trouble but Dominion  and Smartmatic.  Bring it on, you SOBS.  
  73. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 113,161,963 confirmed cases, +445,096, 2,510,955, confirmed deaths, +10,185, and 63,860,665 confirmed recoveries, +262,680.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,693,938 confirmed cases, up 85,007 from yesterday’s reporting, 513,517 confirmed deaths, UP 3,630, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 38 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 185,003 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  74. 2021 Friday I: 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: 3,555,916 confirmed cases, 51,435 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 435 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 341,011 confirmed cases, 5,015 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: Maryland- currently, they have 380,618 confirmed cases, 7,838 confirmed deaths, and 9,643 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 767,760 confirmed cases, 5,687 confirmed deaths, and 722,534 confirmed recoveries.     
  75. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,877 cases, +4,636 confirmed deaths (same as three weeks ago), and 84,997 confirmed recoveries.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  Meanwhile, the noose around the neck of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continues growing as more and more evidence comes to light of his deliberately sending people infected with the Xi Jinping Fever into rest homes where the alleged hope was to KILL OFF everyone who requires inordinate amounts of resources to maintain.  Get ‘em all sick and BOOM!  You have saved yourselves a vast pool of money, to be used elsewhere, rather like giving money to Black Lives Matter and Antifa.  Add to Cuomo’s woes what with women coming out accusing him of being a sexist pig and we expect he won’t last exceptionally long, especially when CNN won’t even cover his televised rants anymore.  It could not happen to a better person.  
  76. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,932.37, DOWN 469.64 points (-1.50%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,192.34, UP 72.96 points (+0.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,811.15, DOWN 18.19 points (-0.47%).  Although stocks are jumping up and down, we still anticipate the collapse of the U.S. economy so long as (1) businesses don’t reopen in BLUE states; (2) Joe Biden allows the Third World to flood into the United States; (3) economic pocket-poolers are running the show in the ‘Biden administration;’ (4) fossil fuel production continues to collapse thanks to Green New Deal policies being implemented by the frigging Democratic-Socialists, and (5) NO one in the administration has EVER RUN a successful business in their lives.   Here and there, signs arise that show the economy might like to revive; however, as long as none of those issues mentioned above are addressed, there is ONLY one direction for the U.S. economy and that is straight DOWN.   Get your wealth while you can get it and then get the hell out.  Period.  Like GameStop.
  77. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,733.10 per troy oz., +4.20 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $26.66 per troy ounce, +0.26 (+0.98%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,192.80 per troy oz, +7.50 (+0.63%) while the price of COPPER is $4.10 per pound, 0.00 (+0.09%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,321.00 per troy oz, -87.00 (-3.61%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.66 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.26%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000022 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 74.16 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.  Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1637 with a $30 million pot up for grabs.   Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions: 11, 15, 37, 62, 64, and Mega 05.   Out of 54,026 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers PLUS the Mega for a prize of $3,308 apiece.
  78. 2021 Friday K: Dr. Sebastian Gorka reports that Amazon’s streaming service has removed today- during Black History Month, no less- the Clarence Thomas Story.  One of our most distinguished U.S. Supreme Court justices, the story details how Justice Thomas came from extremely humble beginnings to rise to the pinnacle of U.S. jurisprudence.  How Amazon can be such as scumbag organization is beyond us, but we will guarantee they will not get another dime from anyone here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  F— ‘em!
  79. 2022 Saturday: Stick around for the latest FREEDOM NEWS!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album Fairport Convention released was the group’s next archival live album, “Worcester and Tokyo 1974,” on January 12, 2021.  Recorded in one, possibly two locations, this was a celebrated effort as it featured Sandy Denny back in the fold.   Besides Ms. Denny on vocals and piano, the band features (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars and vocals) (3) Jerry Donahue (lead guitar and backing vocals) (4) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars) and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano).  Each song is unique, the overall sound ostentatious, and all we can say is that we wholly recommend this album to fans of both the blog and of the band.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and then add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did- we guarantee it.

56. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2022

2021 Thursday: Day 37 of the Biden Regime- Congressman James Panetta, D-CA 20th congressional district, and nearly two dozen other House Democrats are pushing decrepit ‘Old Joe’ Biden to give up sole authority to launch nukes should the need to do so arises. The Democrats want a cabal of the president, vice president, and House speaker to make the determination which will delay any response America might have against an impending nuclear attack. Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, says this is ‘weird.’
