  58. 2018 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump dismissed the finding of public health experts who estimated that nearly 3,000 people had died in Puerto Rico from the effects of Hurricane Maria.  The death toll was nowhere near what his enemies proclaimed it to be.  Meanwhile, former UK Prime Minister and now head of the Global Extremist Monitor Tony Blair reports that in ‘2017, 121 Islamic extremist groups took the lives of at least 84,000 people around the world.’  Again, got to love the so-called ‘religion of peace.’  When is Islam going to undergo a reformation?  Finally, do-gooders in Spain vote to exhume the body of the ‘savior of Spain’ Generalissimo “El Caudillo” Francisco Franco from the Valley of the Fallen.  The man saved that country from communism, people.  Leave him where he lies.

Bennie Thompson, D-LA, says he sent a subpoena to acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf demanding he appear before the committee to answer questions on September 17.  Acting Secretary Wolf says he ‘will be happy to do so but first, he has to undergo the confirmation process so he can sit before them as the DHS director.
  64. 2020 Sunday D: The Chi-Coms are sniveling and whining that ‘President Trump is the fomenter of regional unrest in Asia.’  Wah, wah, wah, no wonder the Chinese Communist Party is supporting the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and Willie Brown’s ‘mattress,’ Sen. Kamala Harris.  The Chi-Coms are supporting Biden, the Russians are supporting Biden, the Iranians are supporting Biden, the Cubans are supporting Biden, hell, every country that hates the United States is supporting “Pro-China Joe” Biden- what does that tell you?  Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says ‘legislation is required’ to negotiate a free-trade deal with the European Union whom the PM says is threatening to blockade the Irish Sea.  WTF?  Finally, the western United States continues burning, homes are destroyed, people are dying all because the three governors of California, Oregon, and Washington won’t do proper forestry management.  Read tomorrow’s post in which, Chef Gervais says it’s because their retirement programs for public employees suck up approximately 90% of each state’s budget so it’s burn baby burn.

[xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Connecticut: $3.190.  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- New Zealand: $6.559 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,757,077,774,031 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Kingdom, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position. 
  72. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Every day it becomes more and more depressing as to what is occurring along the U.S.-Mexico border as well as around the country where the Biden regime dumps illegal aliens and unvetted refugees but still, we must soldier onward.  Today is Day No. 172 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s part-time mattress, to be in charge of the calamity befalling the nation as well as her 79th day since her ONLY trip to the region to ‘view the problem.’ “Kooky,” get your flat ass down there and do your flipping job.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  73. 2020 Monday G: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Six Los Angeles Police Department officers- the first of many expected to come- have filed suit against the city of Los Angeles over the imposition of China virus vaccines onto ALL citywide workers.  Good for you- stand strong and don’t give up.  Elsewhere, former New Jersey Governor Chris “Lard Lad” Christie says that ‘Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates will harden criticism of the unvaccinated.’  Go screw yourself, tubby.   However, a new Trafalgar poll shows a large percentage of the American people view Joe Biden’s illegal vaccine mandates as being ‘unconstitutional’ which they are.  Nothing Joe can or would do will change this.  They are ILLEGAL (as is the Biden regime).  Add to that the fact that President Donald J. Trump pointed out that during ‘his time in office, Democrats disparaged the vaccines’ so WTF Joe?
  74. 2021 Monday H: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.58 (2) AstraZeneca $55.96 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.93 (4) BioNTech $327.14 (5) Moderna $419.72.  As the push for more and more vaccine mandates increases, the enlightened reader must pay close attention to the stock prizes of the BIG PHARMA vaccine manufacturers so as to comprehend the reasons behind the push.  Democrats in Congress direct U.S. taxpayer dollars to these companies who then crank out billions of vaccines from which, the elected leaders and Deep State apparatchiks reap loads of money in the form of campaign donations, bribes, and kickbacks.  This is an evil system.  The same thing occurs for the military stocks outlined below.
  75. 2021 Monday I: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.64 (2) General Dynamics: $104.53 (3) Boeing: $214.49 (4) Lockheed Martin: $346.40 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $353.72.  Follow the money.  Follow the stocks in which the nomenklatura invests the BIG BUCKS.
  76. 2021 Monday J: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.25 (2) DuPont: $70.67 (3) Honeywell: $223.60 (4) 3M: $185.23 (5) Teijen: $1,676.00.  Remember when Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci said ‘we may have to wear goggles atop 2-3 masks?’  Well, this is why, these BIG PPE manufacturing companies sell stock, too, in which, the Deep State and elected leaders invest.  It’s almost like sleeping with one’s sister, it’s not right, it’s immoral, yet it happens all too frequently.  This must stop.
  77. 2021 Monday K: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.94 (2) Maple Leaf Foods, Inc./Tofurkey: $21.33.  The next big push is artificial meat, it’s BIG on the Green New Deal agenda.  They want to eradicate factory farming of livestock and replace it with “Soylent Green”-type FAKE MEAT.  It’s one thing to eat tofu and quite another to eat something of which, NO one knows what the hell is in it.  If you know nothing about “Soylent Green,” look it up.
  78. 2021 Monday L: Joe Biden News I– Mentally dead Joe Biden is being trolled after a video of him with a bunch of pro-Donald J. Trump school-aged kids goes viral. Even children know this POS dictator is illegitimate.  Biden took a photo with a group of kids who were all wearing MAGA hats and pro-Trump gear which the dictator seemed not to notice.  Our view is that IF this man is as absent as he seems, he must leave office NOW.  NOW!
  79. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Wherever doddering old Joe Biden stumbles- Idaho and California to survey ‘fire damage’- he attracts crowds but not the ones you may think.  These crowds are opposed to him, his policies, and the stinking mess he has caused in eight short months.  Average, ordinary, patriotic Americans let their ire be felt in respectful ways while the second week in a row, the chorus of “F**K JOE BIDEN” continues to grow at more and more college and university sports stadiums.  The American people have been pushed as far as they can go and the message is clear to everyone with half a brain or more: it is time for YOU to go, Joe.  Resign NOW.
  80. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken is testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee.  He will be answering questions on WHY his boss- slobbering Joe Biden- caused such devastation and destruction across that country.  The Republican National Committee is calling for the immediate termination of Secretary “Bullshit” Blinken over him being the face of the disgrace of the fetid, stinking mess of Afghanistan.   Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris says the ‘U.S. government must protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated.’  Uh, okay, then EVERY member of Congress and their staffers must get vaccinated with this questionable vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU.
  81. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– A new book by Ben Schreckinger- former business associate of the Biden mob family- “The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power”- demonstrates how the Biden crime family profited from Joe’s time in political office.  Wow.
  82. 2021 Monday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Early today, a California man from Oceanside, California- 44-year-old Donald Craighead- was arrested outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters after Capitol Hill police officers noticed he had a machete and a bayonet in his nearby vehicle.  Hmmm, sounds like another Cesar Sayoc-type guy, another ‘Capitol Hill pipe bomber,’ some loser the Dems set up to commit some non-crime with which they can tar and feather their GOP opponents and President Donald J. Trump.  We await further information.
  83. 2021 Monday Q: Political News I– Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, asks an especially important question: Were the mistakes the Biden regime committed in Afghanistan ‘intentional?’  (Note- we believe so, we believe the deal was to let the country implode as quickly as possible while leaving tens of billions of dollars of military and security equipment behind for the Taliban and other enemies such as communist China, Russia, and Iran to exploit.  We think that money would flow back to the Biden crime family in circuitous routes for handing over all this U.S. military technology.  Something similar occurred back in the early days of the Bush #43 regime when the Chi-Coms forced down one of our spy planes on Hainan Island and again when great pretender Barack Hussein Obama took office when the Iranians managed to bring down one of our drones.  Obama never demanded it back thus the Iranians and their allies gleaned U.S. military secrets.  This also occurred under the Clinton presidency when he allowed the Chi-Coms to gain U.S. missile secrets.  Amazing how all of these presidents think nothing of selling out the country they were elected to lead and how coincidentally, they achieve massive amounts of wealth.  Classic money-go-round with being a traitor thrown in for good measure).
  84. 2021 Monday R: Political News II– The Democrats continue pushing the finalization of the largest tax increase on the American people in U.S. history with Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, being the lone holdout against the criminal $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  Senator Manchin is taking heat from his fellow Democrats including incoming from dingbat Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, she with the BIG ECONOMIC DEGREE from Boston University.  Senator Manchin waves the dumb bitch off the way a cow’s tail waves flies away from its ass.  Stand strong, Senator Manchin, stand strong.
  85. 2021 Monday S: Political News III– In yet another reason why regular Republicans detest their elected leaders, former President George W. Bush blasts average Americans by linking the Taliban and other jihadists to the Capitol Hill protesters who were swept up in the FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS being run by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi on January 06, 2021.  (Note- my GOP colleagues tell me they wish they could take back their votes from voting for this bum back in 2000 and again in 2004.  I can see why they feel this way as this is not right.  Chef Itzi Nakamura).
  86. 2021 Monday T: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Abortion providers across the United States are demanding the U.S. Supreme Court uphold Roe v. Wade, the ‘landmark’ decision that legalized the murder of the unborn from one end of the country to the other.
  87. 2021 Monday U: Arizona State News– An Arizona judge is going to look into the statewide ban on the wearing of masks in public schools.  Pro-mask groups are wailing and screaming over Governor Doug Ducey and his executive order banning the imposition of mask mandates and have found a favorable left-wing judge with which to challenge the governor’s constitutional authority on this and other Chi-Vi vaccine-related issues.
  88. 2021 Monday V: California State News– As the recall election is underway in California with which to remove perhaps the worst sitting governor in the history of the United States- Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom- reports are already coming out of people going to vote YES on the recall and discovering that the computer says, “They have already voted.”  There is going to be so much political chicanery coming from the left as the Dems try to save their ’golden bitch’ from being booted out on his ass that they are willing to replicate what they did on November 03, 2020, and that is to steal the election.  We suspect, however, that there are going to be so many YES votes on the recall that the Dems will be unable to mass produce enough ballots on the fly to save this puling POS governor.   The time is NOW to save the Golden State and to return it to the glorious place it once was.   
  89. 2021 Monday W: California State News II– Meanwhile, actress Rose McGowan joins forces with gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder saying that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom’s wife begged her NOT to talk about Harvey Weinstein’s depredations ahead of the world learning of them.  Seems like Governor “Nazi” Newsom and his wife aren’t so WOKE when it comes to a pig such as Mr. Weinstein.  Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-CA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘off-base Newsom deserves recall.’   Elsewhere, Michael Reagan says that Larry Elder is going to get BLOWN OUT in tomorrow’s recall election.  Finally, Ashli Babbitt’s widowed husband, Aaron- reports that he has received FOUR mail-in ballots at his home where he lives alone.
  90. 2021 Monday X: Missouri State News– Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, is probing vandalism that befell a memorial to the victims of September 11, 2002.  What a bunch of Marxist scum.  We must begin ferreting these SOBs out and show them what it means to be an American with love of country.
  91. 2021 Monday Y: New York State News– A New York hospital announced recently that it will NO longer deliver babies due to so many of its OB staff leaving the hospital over the Chi-Vi vaccine mandates.  Sad, incredibly sad.  At least 30 delivery room personnel have stood up and said, “We are not going to get vaccinated for the Wuhan Fever.”  Stand your ground, people, stand your ground.
  92. 2021 Monday Z: Sports News I– Tonight is the first Monday Night Football game of the 2021-2022 NFL Season: the Baltimore Ravens (0-0) @ the Las Vegas Raiders.  In overtime, the Raiders pull one out with a final score of 33-27.  Las Vegas will be rocking tonight as this was the new stadium’s first home crowd.  The hookers are going to be busy all night…
  93. 2021 Monday AA: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #884 with a jackpot of $416 million up for grabs: 37, 40, 50, 61, 63, and Powerball 21.  Out of 68,526 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 45 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $429 apiece.
  94. 2022 Tuesday:  Every Californian must remember in November that NO matter how unknown many of the Republican candidates in the California General Election, we must vote for them.  While GREEN this and GREEN that sound orgasmic, the truth of the matter is, like anything else, one cannot wham-bam into existence without proper planning and forethought.  Look at our illustrious governor, threatening power shutoffs at every turn and encouraging ALL EV owners not to plug their cars in between the hours of 4:00 PM and 9:00 PM because it will shatter the grid, the day after the little sword-swallowing closet fruitcake told the state that come 2035, NO MORE GASOLINE POWERED VEHICLES WILL BE SOLD IN THE STATE.  This man is such a worthless moron, he should have been booted out in last year’s recall election yet using the same chicanery that saved George Gascon he managed to retain power.  People, even if the cost of EVs could be cut by half, most California homes would require expensive updates to their electrical system in order to charge these ‘miracle vehicles’ without throwing the breakers and shutting off power.  Friends, we expect to join the exodus out of the Golden State as soon as we can sell our landmark restaurant and to go into retirement, preferably either down in Florida or in Nevada.  Either one would be good because California is on the precipice of complete collapse, and it certainly does not have to be this way.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick returned on September 10, 1977, with their sophomore effort, the acclaimed “In Color.”  The lineup featured the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  This album landed Cheap Trick on FM radio stations what with cuts such as “Big Eyes,” “I Want You to Want Me,” (BIG track in the land of the Rising Sun), “Oh, Caroline,” and “Clock Strikes Ten.”  Perhaps one of America’s soon-to-be-greatest bands, this album is a definite must-own by every aficionado of rock music.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music, you will be glad you did.

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

[ii] We began promoting the music of Foghat, one of the all-time greatest rock bands to explode out of England, beginning on Monday, 18-February-2018 through Monday, 19-March-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this celebrated group out by checking out the blog posts on those dates.

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

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

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

[vii] Tupac Shakur?  It could be 40 years before we begin promoting the music of rappers.  Please join us every day for that glorious day- you will be glad you did but NO Eminem. Fuck him- he hates his mother.

[viii] Many educated people believe that these so-called migrants are the advance waves of a Muslim invading army designed to bring Western Civilization down by overrunning Europe.  It must stop and it has to stop; otherwise, the world will transform into something it was never intended to be Sharia-ruled slave states with despots at the top.

  76. 2022 Monday:  Observation of the Day– Friends, I do not know about you but do you think the ‘war in Ukraine’ is something more than just one thug invading the country of another?  Did not the drooling dimwit of deceitfulness tell us that he was going to break Russia, break the Ruble, and break the war machine via the ‘sanctions’ he and his stooges in the European Union imposed on Moscow?  I remember hearing something akin to that yet the only ones being broken are the United States and the Europeans.  Gasoline costs will skyrocket even higher than they were once the artificial price adjustments return to normal all the while the Europeans are scrambling around trying to find energy sources other than wood and coal, sources we could provide them if our president weren’t a worthless POS.  It seems to me the ‘war in Ukraine’ is more about destroying our and the EU’s economy than it is about destroying Putin’s ability to make war.  The worse things become the more likely people will accept socialism, something none of us but a cadre of young, dumb idiots want because they do not understand the ramifications of embracing such a political-social-economic system that in the end will crush them, not help them.  Add to that the billions of dollars Cho-Mo Joe Biden continues sending overseas and one can see all the graft he and his worthless family are skimming off the top, yet another Money-Go-Round.  Folks, we need to get rid of every mother**king Democrat come November and to replace them with MAGA CONSERVATIVES.  It is the only hope for our nation and for our posterity.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.
  77. 2022 Monday A: NFL 2022-2023 Season Week One: In Seattle, Washington, the Denver Broncos (0-0-0) with new quarterback, Russell Wilson, are going to play the Seahawks (0-0-0).  We shall see.

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:

One of the all-time great American rock bands, Cheap Trick, formed in Rockford, Illinois, back in the early 1970s.  Through hard touring and numerous performances, the band landed a recording contract and released their first album, the self-titled, “Cheap Trick” on February 03, 1977.  The band features the quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Much of the 1970s featured 1960s rock bands working hard to hang on to their perches because the Disco phase was destroying those that could not.  Most rock fans had only the Rolling Stones, the Who, the Faces, the Kinks, Led Zeppelin, and Aerosmith to hold onto so by the time Cheap Trick exploded onto the scene with the Cars, the Knack, and a few others, it was as if the rock gods were smiling on us once again.  This album contains two major classics, “Elo Kiddies” and “Taxman, Mr. Thief.”  Every song with the exception of one is written by guitarist Nielsen.  Please, seek this album out and add it to your growing collection of musical classics.  You will be extremely glad you did.

223. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 2022

If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise. The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out. Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.

  51. 2019 Sunday:  The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend.  None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement, they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety.  Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
  52. 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it is NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly).  She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee.  It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, since dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India.  There you go.  If we, were you, Joe, we would sleep with one eye open from this point onward?  
  53. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02.  She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off one hundred officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it.

  55. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, thirty-four confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN).  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers your malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.

[xiv]  
  58. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 316,875 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 87,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xx]        
  62. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.393 per gallon, $3.017 in Florida, $4.095 in Hawaii, and $3.878 in Washington state. [xxi]    Let us look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.931.  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- Northern Macedonia: $5.194 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,630,008,130,917 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  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 Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  63. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,303,378.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,724,395,892.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,497,274.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,497,419. [xxiv]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).[xxv]
  64. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea says that the United States is failing to improve relations between the two countries.  Meanwhile, the Taliban conquer their eighth provincial capital in Afghanistan.  Many believe that Kabul will implode within three months.  Joe Biden’s mouthpiece, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, says that Joe ‘does not believe the collapse of Afghanistan is inevitable’ yet it will happen because of the way regime leader Biden conducted the pull-out.  Elsewhere, for some unknown reason, the U.S. State Department is sending $50 million to totalitarian Myanmar ostensibly to help around 700,000 people address COVID-19 concerns.  Why aren’t the Chi-Coms helping their fellow thugs?
  65. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The COVID-19 Nazis are at it again: YouTube has suspended the account of Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, over the bold senator’s recent criticisms of mask and vaccine mandates.  Speaking of mandates, drooling Joe Biden says (or his earpiece says) that HE will overrule like God on High bans on mask wearing in public schools.  Go for it, Joe, go for it.  Next, the Pentagon says that ‘most troops will respond positively to being compelled to get Chi-Vi vaccines.’  Moving on, the FDA is seeking clearance to mandate a third Chi-Vi vaccine injection for transplant patients.
  66. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke led tens of thousands of Wisconsinites in demanding an audit of the 2020 Presidential and national elections.  Across the nation, more people are standing up demanding that their state’s 2020 Election results undergo a forensic audit.  At Sioux City, South Dakota, as Mike Lindell and his patriotic colleagues were producing ream after ream after ream of evidence, he discovered live on air that a federal judge was going to allow the Dominion Voting Systems multiple lawsuits to proceed against the pillow magnate and his allies.  It is clear from listening to the two days so far that the 2020 Elections a cabal of rat-eating Chi-Com scum, Democratic-Socialists, and their obsequious RINO allies manipulated the elections to their desire if not actively reversed the results.  The time is coming, and it is coming soon when all of this will find its way into the courts.  The Department of Homeland Security is warning local police department to keep an eye out for election deniers.
  67. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden News I– Flipflopping from yesterday, slobbering old Joe Biden supports New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s resignation over his obsessive grabbing, fondling, and kissing of unwilling women and men.  Joe, they will be coming for YOU next, you old Cho-Mo.  (Speaking of “Killer” Cuomo, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, calls for the arrest and prosecution of the devious governor once he is out of office.  In other Cuomo news, his ex, Sandra Lee, feels betrayed that the groper took credit for granting homosexual marriage rights in the Empire State.  Apparently, she twisted him by the gonads to do this.
  68. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– The U.S. Senate passed the massive $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that will further impoverish the United States while stuffing massive amounts of cash into the pockets of Democrats, their sycophant RINO allies, and labor unions while everyone else will suffer.   Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, blasted the Democrats’ reckless ‘tax and spend’ policies.  He ripped into the scurrilous Democrats moments before the passage of the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill of which ONLY seven percent is ‘infrastructure.’  The rest is free pork to leftwing locales, liberal politicians, and of course the omnipresent Chi-Coms.  (The Republicans are telling the Democrats to ‘go it alone’ on raising the debt ceiling).  However, the Senate passed a GOP-led amendment that prohibits government from using federal funds to promote Critical (Criminal) Race Theory in government and in education.  Unfortunately, the Democrats can always remove or negate the amendment later like they almost always do when it comes to the horror of abortion.   Finally, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, voted against the ‘infrastructure bill.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, endorsed Ohio GOP Senate candidate and author J.D. Vance in the race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Rob Portman.   In other political news, former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos says she will NOT seek the governorship of Michigan in 2022.  In other news, the speaker of the Texas state house signed arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats who are holding up progress.  Meanwhile, longtime Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district, says he will not seek re-election.  He has served the citizens of his district since 1997. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– A gunowners rights group is fighting for the right to open carry firearms at the Minnesota State Fair.  Speaking of Second Amendment rights, President Donald J. Trump is congratulating Governor Mike Parson, R-MO, for pardoning the gun-wielding couple who defended their home in last year’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests.  Leftwing trash brazenly targeted Mark and Patricia McCloskey in their front yard.  The couple stood by armed to the teeth while the mob seethed about them in the street threatening to murder them, rape Patricia McCloskey, kill the family pets, and to burn their home down in the private community.
  71. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News IV– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her Squad-backed group are hailing cop killers.  What is wrong with these leftist skanks?  Strip these hateful skanks of their protection squads and let them fend for themselves.
  72. 2021 Wednesday O: California State News– Oakland, California, city officials are calling on Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to declare a state of emergency over rising violent crime rates across the city.  These people are Democrats!
  73. 2021 Wednesday P: Texas State News– Texas counties have won court orders blocking Governor Greg Abbott’s mask ban mandates.  They want masks.  Governor Abbott also fired a shot across the bow of the tranny movement by comparing gender transformation surgeries for children to be child abuse.
  74. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3585 what with a $7 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 12, 21, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 89,125 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,064 apiece.    Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #871 with a jackpot of $241 million up for grabs: 12, 18, 20, 29, 30, and Powerball 16.  Out of 92,051 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but no Powerball for a prize of $4,4772,553.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Temecula, CA 92592.
  75. 2021 Wednesday R: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– In his hometown of Akron, Ohio, heavyweight boxer Michael “Dynamite” Dokes dies at age 54, one day after his birthday.  Over the course of his pro career, he held numerous titles and amassed a record of 61 fights, 53 wins (33 KOs), 6 losses, and 2 draws.
  76. 2021 Wednesday S: The Wrap-Up– We learned today that the Biden regime is begging OPEC and associated nations to increase oil production so gasoline prices within the United States will drop.  Folks, didn’t this stumblebum bozo clamp down on virtually every fossil fuel production project that he could within the United States so he could usher in a brave new era of solar panels and wind energy?  Whether we produce our own oil supplies or import them, we are still burning the same amount of oil.  If we produce it, we are energy independent and if we import it and rely on those sources, we sure as hell are not.  Friends, this is frigging insane and the sooner the courts begin hearing the election fraud cases on merit, the sooner we might decapitate this faux regime.  We are Americans, we are free people, and we are not going to put up with this bullshit.  NOT threatening any violence upon anyone, just saying.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  77. 2022 Thursday: The next three months are going to be a dangerous time for the American people as the closer Election Day draws near, the more desperate the Biden regime and its Joestapo thugs will become.  They thought sending the Joestapo down to Mar-a-Lago was going to be the magic bullet, yet, the bullet had the opposite effect, people are growing angrier by the minute.  As a former Democrat, I KNOW Democrats, many Democrats in fact, and they are telling me that this ‘ain’t good, Fritz, it ain’t good.’  People are wary of what is happening to our country and whether one likes Donald Trump, or they do not, most can agree on one thing: thanks to him, we are now 100-percent aware as to the existence of the Deep State and most everyone will do everything possible to DESTROY IT.  We elect our leaders, and the bureaucrats are obligated to follow their directions.  If they don’t like it, they can frigging quit.  It is not up to scum such as James Clapper, that fat pig, John Brennan, that deviant POS James Comey, and the rest of the inbred political hacks scattered throughout government to topple elected leaders.  If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise.  The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out.  Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.  It has NEVER been clearer than it is now.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

Today’s album is the next studio album by Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, his second collaboration with the Disney Corporation- “In the Key of Disney”- which came out on October 25, 2011.  Disney was NOT yet WOKE like they would be a decade later which is why this album makes it into our presentation.  Brian ‘reimagines’ the Disney movie classics of the day in a way in which, only he can.  You have remakes of many tunes from various feature animated films whether it be “The Lion King,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Toy Story,” and loads of others well before everything became transgender, gay, lesbo, homo, you name it, all the devious, sick shit Disney now stands for.  Alas, it is what it is, we hope you seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in music and give it a listen.  Perhaps, you might like it.  Enjoy.

191. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JULY 10, 2022

1945 Tuesday: German U-Boat U-530 surfaces south of Buenos Aires, Argentina, a submarine that had gone missing after the German surrender. Many believe that high-ranking Nazis may have been aboard the vessel and will soon be sheltered by the Argentinians. Is Adolf Hitler among the passengers? This question will dog humanity for decades to come and will lead to several sightings of the fugitive Fuhrer.

  59. 2012 Tuesday: Always in search of new members (and to tweak the noses of the Catholics), the U.S. Episcopalian Church announces that its bishops have approved new rites for the blessings of gay marriages.  Oh, goody.  At one time, the gays said, “All we want is civil unions.”  Then, all of a sudden it was homosexual marriage.  They wanted nothing else.  We predict that within a decade they will pushing trannys, furries, pedophiles, and multiple-partner marriages.  You heard it here, first, and it’s all because these groups have LOTS of money which the Democrats covet.

  62. 2015 Friday: After a state law enacted its removal, the state of South Carolina removes the Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds.  Many see the flag as racist and following the assault on the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church that saw nine parishioners murdered by a white racist, the state had had enough.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of State blasts Thailand for its decision to deport a bunch of Uighur Muslims back to Xinjiang Province where the Chi-Coms are running amok in their persecutions of Muslims and other ethnic and religious minorities.

Walmart.  Elsewhere, the government of Iraq announces that the final positions of ISIS thugs in Mosul have been conquered and the scumbag jihadists either captured or killed.  Meanwhile, doctors in communist China report that Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo is in ‘grave, grave condition.’  Yup, most likely because YOU put him there.

  66. 2019 Wednesday: After cables between the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. and London suddenly appear in the news, cables in which, the British ambassador to the U.S. Sir Kim Darroch lambastes President Donald J. Trump for being ‘inept,’ among other things, the ambassador returns home in shame.  Speaking of the Brits, however, they have problems in the Persian Gulf as three IRGC swift boats attempt to commandeer a British oil tanker, the British Heritage.  However, a Royal Navy vessel, the HMS Montrose, warns the Iranian scum away from the tanker and thus they vacate as fast as their engines can propel them.  You should have sunk the maggots.
  67. 2020 Friday: U.S. Customs and Border Protection, aka CBP, reports that arrests of illegal aliens along the open parts of the U.S. southern border with Mexico were up 40% in June.  We say, “Build the wall and deport them all.”  Meanwhile average polling of the presidential matchup shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is leading President Donald J. Trump by 49.6% to 40.8%.  Finally, tropical storm Fay threatens to hammer New York City.   Perhaps if it slams the city, there won’t be as much violence this weekend as there was last week.
  68. 2020 Friday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 12,373,722 confirmed cases, UP by 305,688 cases, 556,863 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,704 deaths, and 6,786,196 confirmed recoveries, UP by 135,336 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 3,215,074 confirmed cases, UP by 105,574 new cases, 135,709 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,418 new deaths, and 955,238 confirmed recoveries, UP by 18,989 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).   
  69. 2020 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 296,499 confirmed cases, 6,711 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,130 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 840 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 38,581 confirmed cases, 1,409 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 400,299 confirmed number of cases (number is DOWN from several days ago something is going on), 24,959 confirmed number of deaths (this number has gone down from last week, too, so something is up), and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the numbers you murdering f**k!  YOU sent Xi Jinping Bat Flu-infected patients into rest homes where people were the most vulnerable and KILLED THEM.

  71. 2020 Friday D: Less than a week before Roger Stone was to report to federal prison to serve his 3.5-year-stretch for being a friend of the commander-in-chief, President Donald J. Trump commuted his sentence to time served which drove the insane leftists berserk.  Meanwhile, the CEO of Goya Foods. Robert Unanue says he won’t back down upon having been at the White House the day prior and complimented the president on a job well done.  Good for you!
  72. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 187,188,248 confirmed cases, +366,661, 4,040,987 confirmed deaths, +6,599 and 171,108,101 confirmed recoveries, +230,606.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,723,547 confirmed cases, UP 16,178 from yesterday’s reporting, 622,810 confirmed deaths, UP 145, [xii] and 29,233,712 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,765.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Currently, Joe is shy 154,745 deaths

[xix]        
  77. 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 over $4.311 per gallon, $3.009 in Florida, $4.048 in Hawaii, and $3.828 in Washington state. [xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.970.  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- Ivory Coast: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon. [xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,506,094,235,480 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By the count of the AICPENDBLOG.COM, today is Day No. 109 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the unfolding border calamity and her 15th day since her first and only visit to the border.  Has she done anything?  Nope.  We’ve seen nothing.  Meanwhile, One America News presented the daily cost of the illegal alien invasion as well as the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals.  Are you ready?  Here we go: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the infestation of invaders: $585,654,656.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, the addicted, wounded veterans, and Americans devastated by harsh Chi-Vi lockdowns?  It would be transformational.  Next, (2) Total Cost of caring for the detritus of the Third World this year: $208,804,888,576.  Moving on, (3) Estimated number of illegals who have entered the United States this year: 2,140,083.  Finally, (4) CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens running amok in the United States: 36,140,084. [xxiii] (Sources for OAN: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  79. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that the Big Tech case will frame the law moving forward for the 21st century.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump calls on Senate Republicans to stop negotiating on infrastructure.  Amen.  It’s a Trojan horse.   Elsewhere, in Charlottesville, Virginia, statues of Confederate icons Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson are being removed today.  How sad.  Meanwhile, new reports suggest that female staffers on Capitol Hill are still lagging behind their male counterparts when it comes to salaries.  Democrats- aren’t YOU in charge?
  80. 2021 Saturday H: Political News II– In other news, ramshackle Joe Biden continues taking flak over his plan to send the Joestapo door to door to check on people’s vaccination status.  Wow.  Add to that the fact that he cannot even remember the name of his own, hand-picked Health and Human Services secretary (and California’s shame) Xavier Becerra and one can see disaster unfolding.  Besides, Secretary Becerra is taking all kinds of heat for suggesting the government has the RIGHT TO KNOW the vaccine status of ALL U.S. citizens while not giving a flying f**k about the illegal aliens the administration is distributing around the country.
  81. 2021 Saturday I: Political News III– Illinois is becoming the first state to order teaching of Asian-American history to all students.  Oh, boy, do some chest-thumping there, Governor J.B. Pritzker!  In other news, fencing around Capitol Hill reportedly is coming down six months after the Democrats’ FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.   Elsewhere, a judge blocks Tennessee’s new law requiring public bathrooms to post notices regarding trannys entering them.  Now, the notices cannot appear as it’s somehow discriminatory against confused individuals believing themselves to be something they are NOT.  Finally, a growing number of Democrats are growing fearful that their party has become too WOKE.  (Note- you can add me to the list- Chef Bea O’Malley).
  82. 2021 Saturday J: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have Super Lotto and Powerball.  The Super Lotto Draw #3576 has a $62 million pot on the line.  The Powerball Draw #862 has a $127 million pot on the line.  Stick around and find out the results for both.  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw: 09, 11, 15, 27, 30, and Mega 25.  Out of 136,746 winning tickets, the highest winners were ONE person who had FIVE NUMBERS plus the Mega for a prize of $62,000,000.  That ticket was sold at Tori Liquor in Van Nuys, CA 91405. Two other winners had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $24,559 apiece.  These two tickets were sold at two different 7-Eleven stores, one in Atwater, CA 95301 and the other at the San Ysidro, CA 92173.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 01, 05, 29, 54, 62, and Power 03.  Out of 62,489 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $21,875.

[v] We began promoting the music of Foghat, one of the all-time greatest rock bands to explode out of England, beginning on Monday, 18-February-2018 through Monday, 19-March-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this celebrated group out by checking out the blog posts on those dates.

You will be glad you did.

[x] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do.

[xxiii] Our original blog began back in 2009 and by 2010- when we realized the Chi-Coms were spying on us at the Choseit.com blogsite, we went to Google in late summer 2010 and we estimated then that the numbers of illegal aliens in the country was then between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers of illegal aliens running amok in our great country is between 75-100 million.  What other country would not respond militarily to an invasion such as this?  We believe that we must lay in minefields along the entire southern border, that we must build anti-personnel, anti-vehicular, and anti-vessel traps, we also must lay in foo gas pits, barbed wire, seed the area with rattlesnakes and alligator pups, put in snipers to shoot the traffickers through their heads as they ply the waters of the Rio Grande.  We believe we must imprison every U.S. citizen caught helping illegal aliens for 20 years to start. We must heavily tax all monies flowing out of the U.S. at between 90-95-percent and we believe we must send employers and landlords to prison for helping illegal aliens.  It is rapidly becoming us or them.  -Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MAY 16, 2022

2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News- the recount of ballots in Arizona has already yielded evidence that criminal activities did indeed occur in the subsequent hours after the 2020 Election. There is word that ‘Senator’ Mark Kelly could be recalled, and that Martha McSally returned to her position. We await further developments.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 189

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MAY 16, 2022:

Vice President Levi P. Morton; U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Norman J. Coleman; U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan; U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward; U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning; Black Sabbath featuring Ronnie James Dio, King Crimson featuring Robert Fripp, Nazareth featuring Darrell Sweet, Nirvana featuring Krist Novoselic, Robin Trower featuring James Dewar, Savoy Brown featuring Roger Earl, and the Who:

  1. 1003 Monday: The 140th Roman Catholic Pope John XVII assumes his role as the Vicar of Christ on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until November 06, 1003.
  2. 1605 Monday: The 233rd Roman Catholic Pope Paul V became the shepherd of all Christians on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until January 28, 1621.
  3. 1611 Monday: Future 240th Roman Catholic Pope Innocent XI is born Benedetto Odescalchi.  He would pick up his Holy Cross on September 21, 1671 and would lead his global flock from then until August 12, 1689.
  4. 1770 Wednesday:  Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was only 15 years old.

  11. 1831 Monday: The future 37th U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning is born.  A future Democrat, he would serve under President Grover Cleveland from March 08, 1885, to March 21, 1887.
  12. 1860 Wednesday: At Chicago, the Republican Party selects Abraham Lincoln as its candidate for the presidency of the United States.
  13. 1861 Thursday: The Confederate government offers war volunteers a $10 premium to join the ranks.
  14. 1863 Saturday: During the Vicksburg Campaign, the bloodiest fighting occurs at Champion’s Hill in Mississippi.
  15. 1865 Tuesday: The 8th U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Andrew Johnson from today until August 31, 1866.

Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority required to convict; 10 days later, the trial ended after two other articles of impeachment went down in flames, too.  The problem was Johnson wanted to follow the wishes of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln who wanted to treat the South with leniency while Lincoln’s holdover Cabinet members wanted to crush them.

  58. 2014 Friday: California burning- near San Diego, California, authorities inform the public that at least 20,000 acres have gone up in smoke within the county.   This is the toll of 11 wildfires.  This crap goes on year after year because Democrats will NOT permit proper forest management, won’t build new dams to collect fresh water instead of allowing it to flow out to sea, and putting so many restrictions atop PG&E and other power companies to fight global warming by pursuing renewable energy goals that are unrealistic.  The state requires good governance and it’s not from the Democrats.

  62. 2018 Wednesday: As talks on a summit between North Korea and the United States continues, Pyongyang says that it ‘might cancel the talks if the U.S. continues demanding unilateral disarmament of its nuclear weapons.  They know what happened to Libya that gave up its WMDs and things did not end well for the regime of Moammar Gaddafi.   Likewise, talks that were supposed to occur between North and South Korea are canceled as a protest of U.S. demands.
  63. 2019 Thursday: According to the Global Drug Survey, English-speaking peoples are more likely to get drunk throughout the year than do, non-English speakers, with the British getting drunk the most, an average of 51 times per year.  Folks, this is bogus information as Russians drink more than anyone and communist nations’ citizens (or authoritarian ones) drinking more than anyone anywhere else.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration finally does something that should have happened long ago and that is to cancel $929 million federal grant funding the disastrous California High-Speed Rail project, a project that seems to enrich Democratic politicians and their Chi-Com overseers.  (Note- we await Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which will make the train what it is- an expensive boondoggle).
  64. 2020 Saturday: Thanks to communist China, the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues as the disease continues causing problems around the world.  However, information coming from independent sources within the totalitarian state report as many as 750,000 cases of the coronavirus with possible number of deaths ranging from 150,000-to-250,000.  Since the authoritarian state won’t tell the world the truth, we must rely on these brave sources willing to put their lives and those of their families at risk to get the truth out to the rest of the world.  Here are the global statistics for today: 4,626,632 confirmed cases what with 311,363 confirmed deaths but 1,679,428 confirmed recoveries which is amazing, the number of recoveries compared to deaths.  In the United States, we have 1,497,244 confirmed cases, 89,420 confirmed deaths, but 272,525 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, state by state, beginning first with the Golden State: 76,793 confirmed cases, 3,204 confirmed deaths, but of course, 0 confirmed recoveries- California, give us the information!  You are no better than flipping communist China!  For Hawaii, we have 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. Ige.  For the once great state of Washington, now beset by a socialist state government, here are the stats: 18,288 confirmed cases, 999 confirmed deaths, but like that fellator Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, NO number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Inslee won’t share the stats.  Vote these scumbags out of office as soon as possible.  
  65. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 163,716,770 confirmed cases, +6,113, 3,393,335  confirmed deaths, +117 and 143,320,593 confirmed recoveries, +77,970.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,715,951 confirmed cases, UP 20,704 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,147 confirmed deaths, UP 308,[x] and 27,136,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,423.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]   
  66. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 283,944 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 175,665 deaths.

  71. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– And they used to complain about President Donald J. Trump using Department of Defense funds to defend the southern border, we learn today that Joe Biden has diverted $2 billion from federal healthcare programs to care for illegal aliens overrunning the border.  Wow.   Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that Joe Biden should relieve “Kooky Kamala” Harris of her duties as border czar because in 54 days in this position, the least popular woman in the United States has yet to visit the border.
  72. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Australia announces it is going to keep its borders closed to all but its own citizens returning home until mid-2022.   Next, the U.S. Department of Defense says that ‘yes indeed, Israel has the right to defend herself.’  Hell, we already know that.  They are on a crusade to eliminate Hamas and other Islamist scum from the planet.  We say continue. 
  73. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– the recount of ballots in Arizona has already yielded evidence that criminal activities did indeed occur in the subsequent hours after the 2020 Election.  There is word that ‘Senator’ Mark Kelly could be recalled, and that Martha McSally returned to her position.  We await further developments.
  74. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– South Carolina reelected Drew McKissick to continue on as the state’s GOP chair of the state.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-Fl, has reached an agreement with the Seminole Nation for expanded casino development and gambling.  (Note- Chef Cherry and hubby are excited by this news- Hawaii never went for casinos).   Elsewhere, new polls show that IF Joe Biden does not run for a second term in 2024 and “Kooky Kamala” Harris somehow dips her corrupt toe in the water, her popularity as a candidate is in the pits.  (Note- we could have told them that- she was a disaster in California, too.  Thank God she’s gone).
  75. 2021 Sunday J: Miscellaneous News I–  Joe Exotic is seeking an early release from the slammer due to a possible cancer diagnosis.   Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, 1,500 trailers meant to house the homeless are sitting vacant in parking lots.  In other news, the FBI has re-classified the Alexandria, Virginia, baseball shooting of a few years back as ‘domestic terrorism.’  The dumb SOBs said at first it was a ‘case of suicide by cop.’  How flipping stupid do you think all of us are?  The ‘domestic terrorism’ call was the ONLY call.  (Note- for the BIG GOVERNMENT folks, they need another generation or two of misinformed souls before they can begin pulling the scams on us).
  76. 2022 Monday: We know, we’re behind…

106. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  63. 2016 Saturday: The Afghan government continues repelling Taliban attacks on the city of Kunduz.  Afghan and U.S. troops are keeping the jihadists at bay.  Half a world away, Syria and ISIS continue doing battle with one another and many parts of the city of Aleppo are smoldering ruins.  For every rocket attack, the Syrian government answers with airstrikes.  Civilians are fleeing in all directions.
  64. 2017 Sunday: Dictatorial thug leader of Turkey- Recep Tayyip Erdogan- ‘wins’ approval for an 18-article constitutional reform which thrusts the nation ever deeper into totalitarianism.  Elsewhere, due to the stupidity of Hamas and Fatah officials, the Gaza Strip’s ONLY power generating plants shuts down.  It has run out of fuel, its bills have gone unpaid, many among the leadership have skimmed off fortunes from money given to the Palestinian Authority and all they can do is to blame it on the ‘blockade.’  Look, dimwits, the answer is simple: stop building tunnels into Israel and do something for your people.  Period. 
  65. 2018 Monday: Following a recent chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government on the town of Douma, critics are bellowing that the Russians have ‘covered up evidence at the crime scene’ to which, the Russians say, ‘not likely’ and that as soon as it’s safe there (as soon as they finish cleaning it up), they will allow a team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to visit the area. 
  66. 2019 Tuesday: While many of us love the Seattle Seahawks, there is no reason as to WHY the team made quarterback Russell Wilson the highest-paid QB in the game, giving him both a $65 million signing bonus as well as a four-year extension worth $140 million.  The rest of the team is struggling so it appears Seattle is going down the path the Baltimore Ravens went with QB Joe Flacco.  Where is Joe NOW?   Elsewhere, President Donald J.

  75. 2021 Friday F: GUNS, GUNS, GUNS– You know folks, last night, 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole went into the FedEx facility at the Indianapolis, Indiana, airport, shot and killed 8 people, wounded several others, and then took his own life.  His mother reportedly warned the cops last year that her son might try to go out via suicide by cop.  This is a tragedy for all involved but here’s the deal: since Joe Biden has become president, there have been more mass shootings than there were under the last two years of President Donald J. Trump what with 30 dead so far this month alone.  This tells us that the rhetoric used by feeble old Joe Biden and his Democratic Party henchmen-and-women is driving the nuts to go berserk, shooting, and killing and maiming innocent people.  It is clear many fear they are going to lose their weapons and since they have unfinished business, are going to act on it NOW.  Stop with all the HATE SPEECH, Joe, enough is enough.  (Note- the cops in Indianapolis say they are searching for a motive.  What the hell!  Mr. Hole wanted to die, and he had some people with whom he wanted to settle scores.  Period).
  76. 2021 Friday G: BULLS**T POLL OF THE DAY– a recent PEW Poll says that Joe Biden’s approval rating stands at 59-percent.  Please.  This nothing but crap.  Speaking of Joe Biden, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says, that ‘Joe Biden is not up to the task at hand, especially the Chi-Coms who are our biggest threat and someone we should have nuked back in 1951.  In other Joe Biden news, he is holding his first meeting with another foreign leader, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan, at the White House today.  We wonder who is speaking for him.   Anyhow, the two leaders agree that the Taiwan Strait must remain stable.
  77. 2021 Friday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– common sense people are beginning to ask WTF we shut our country down over the Chi-Com virus when hundreds of thousands of people continue swamping across our border and disappearing into the interior of the country?  If the federal government could give a flying f**k about how many of the invaders have COVID-19, then why should anyone else?  Speaking of the border crisis, President George W. Bush- an ‘esteemed former president’ if one ever existed (yeah, right) says he supports immigration reform but not amnesty.  George, we feel the same way about you as we do Jimmy Carter.  When either one of you dimwits says anything, we quickly move onto something else.   
  78. 2021 Friday I: JOE BIDEN REFUGEE NEWS–  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the dumb b***h who slurs her words bad enough already but with a mask strapped over her pie hole makes it even more difficult to understand what the hell she is saying chided Joe Biden on not taking in enough refugees.  Oh, please, Nance, please Joe, bring in some more winners like Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, like the Syrian shooter in Boulder, Colorado, like the Boston bombers, please, bring in some more of those America-hating POS, we need more of them ASAP.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden moves to placate our European allies and says he will remove Trump-era caps on the number of refugees our country accepts in.  That truly sucks.
  79. 2021 Friday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Someone said Chelsea “The Genius” Clinton may run for Congress.  Good God Almighty, please say it ain’t so.  She is as stupid as is the Fly, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she with her Boston College economics degree.   Then again, she would fit right in with all the dimwitted Democrats serving in Congress already like Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, and Congresswoman Sheila “Putty Puss” Jackson Lee, DS-TX 18th congressional district, and Congressman ‘Mr.’ James “Influence” Clyburn, DS-SC 6th congressional district, she would fit right in.   
  80. 2021 Friday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– Glenn Beck said today on his radio show that in the cities where Black Lives Matter protesters ran amok raping, pillaging, looting, robbing, and beating, there were a combined total of more than 6,000 additional homicides.  Coincidence?  We think not.  They are not a peace-loving group; they are fascist black-and-brown-shirted thugs in need of eradication.  Elsewhere, in other political news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has challenged the highly cerebral Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district to a debate on the Green New Deal.  Now, we would pay handsomely to get ringside seats to see this duel to the death, MTG doing battle with the Fly on pay-per-view-TV.  Sign us up now.
  81. 2021 Friday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– In other political news, we learn that the director for the new Black Panther sequel is NOT going to follow his WOKE liberal comrades and boycott Georgia.  Good.  ‘WOKE’ will go away when people pay it NO attention.  None of us are going to NFL, NBA, or MLB games ever again nor are we going to buy Coca-Cola® products, Nike® sportswear, or any of the other crap that is boycotting everything.  We are not going to see movies, we do not have to see how stupid we are, how great the Chi-Coms and perverts are, enough is enough.   Elsewhere, the great state of Florida passes an anti-riot bill.  About time someone does.  Look, government’s number one job is this: protecting the lives of its citizens and their property.  Plain, simple, and easy for the stupid to understand.  Once you raise an arm to throw a Molotov cocktail, you get shot.  Once you throw bricks and don’t stop when you are told to stop, you get shot.  Once you start looting, you are eligible to get shot.  This is the way it always was and should be again.
  82. 2021 Friday M: 2020 ELECTION NEWS– reports continue to arise that the number one person behind the changed election laws in numerous states and in the subsequent theft of the election from President Donald J. Trump is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s number one hired thug, attorney Mark Elias.  A partner at Perkins Cole, he is the head of their ‘political law’ department and this man- if we are to believe what we are now learning- is the number one operative behind the stolen election and the subsequent cover-ups of the theft.  In all states where election information has already been trashed, those states should have to hold another election at their expense.
  83. 2021 Friday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– We learn that Hunter Biden’s NEW book in which he talks about smoking crack, banging teenaged whores, and doing all sorts of other evil and disgusting stuff has sold a whopping 10,638 books in its first week.  According to Bill O’Reilly, this is ‘crap’ seeing as how Bill’s new book, “Killing the Mob” has already sold 60,000 copies and is not even on the shelves of bookstores yet.  In other news, people are lamenting the 13-year-old boy who was shot dead in Chicago the other night by a cop.  Adam Toledo, aka Lil Homicide and Baby Diablo was gangbanging with his buds at 2:30 in the morning, running around with a loaded gun, shot at cops, then ran away and dumped the gun just as the cops rolled up and got shot.  YOU don’t want to get shot, don’t be banging, don’t be shooting at cops, and don’t be running around in the middle of the night.  Period.   We shed no tears.  Next, Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, says yes indeed, he is going to resign.  Wow.
  84. 2021 Friday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– U.S. Interior Secretary Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the job, is dumping Trump era rules concerning the fossil fuel industry’s rights on public lands.  Apparently, oil and gas companies will no longer be able to drill for vital national resources leaving us dependent upon OPEC, Russia, and other Third World producers of energy.  This makes no sense.  Next, conservative House Republicans are forming the ‘America First Caucus,’  a group to continue the legacy of President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Minneapolis public schools are hurriedly switching over to online learning as the city (and the country) braces for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, the mother of slain EMT Breonna Taylor- Tamika Palmer- slams both State Representative Attica Scott, D-Louisville, and BLM, labeling both of them as ‘frauds’ in the aftermath of the shooting death of her daughter.  According to Ms. Palmer, she watched the TWO raise money off the death of Breonna without doing a damned thing to help her family.  Wow.  We understand.
  85. 2021 Friday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1651: 17, 27, 28, 50, 55, and Mega 25.  Out of 105,680 winning tickets, the highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $496 apiece.
  86. 2022 Saturday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.

  57. 2006 Wednesday: The ETA—an armed Basque separatist group—declares a permanent ceasefire.  Elsewhere, U.S. Army personnel continue to be punished for mistreating Muslim POWs at the Abu Ghraib prison.  Sgt. Michael Smith, a military dog handler, had the misfortune of being photographed frightening jihadist prisoners with unmuzzled canines.  He received a six-month sentence.  Gee whiz.
  58. 2007 Thursday: As the Iraq War continues to drone on and on and on, the Out-of-Iraq Caucus in the U.S. Congress finds themselves worked into a corner.  They planned to vote against a $124 billion military funding bill that would send more money to both the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on the promise the country would find a way with which to remove the U.S. from these endless meatgrinder wars.  Good luck with that.
  59. 2008 Saturday: In Rome, an amazing incident occurs when Pope Benedict XVI baptizes Madgi Allam, the most well-known Muslim cleric in all of Italy.  Allam has decided to turn his back on Islam and become a Roman Catholic.  Will riots break out around the world?  Events such as this usually cause such mayhem.
  60. 2009 Sunday: After a prolonged period of unrest, Mt. Redoubt, an Alaskan volcano commences erupting.  Elsewhere, in the United States, newbie President Barack Hussein Obama is seeking a strategy with which to extradite the United States from the continuous war in Afghanistan.  Good luck with that, sir.  President Obama tells the American people that the Bush-Cheney policies have made the world less-safe.  We concur, the world is a much more dangerous place due to all these regime-change wars neocons love to launch.
  61. 2010 Monday: In a big to-do for the Obama administration, President Obama will be signing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA or more well-known ACA- into law.  The Republicans are preparing to file a bill with which to repeal it if it does become law, but this BS from the GOP would continue until well after Donald J. Trump became president in early 2017.

Robert Bales is facing 17 counts of premeditated homicide while on duty in Afghanistan.  The Afghans want him so they can dish out justice but for now, he is being held in solitary confinement at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
  64. 2013 Friday: The British Food Standards Agency reports a discovery in Lancashire of 100kg of horsemeat imported from Hungary labelled as beef.  Elsewhere, information is beginning to come out regarding the secret drone war the Obama administration has been running covertly.  Four Americans have been slain by CIA drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan and the American public is growing concerned.  What is the 44th president up to?  Didn’t he win a Nobel Peace Prize almost upon the day of his election?  Yikes.  Take it back, Nobel, take it back.
  65. 2014 Saturday: At Oso, Washington, 30 people die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, at Lake Albert, Uganda, a boat capsize kills at least 251 people.  Elsewhere, with Vladimir Putin formerly signing into law the act that allows Russia to rip the Crimea away from the Ukraine, the world is going berserk.  We shall see what we shall see.
  66. 2015 Sunday: Having discovered the remains of King Richard III of England, 1483-85, in the city of Leicester, the crown gives him a royal funeral procession to his place of burial at the Leicester Cathedral.  Elsewhere, it appears that civil war is looming in Yemen.  The United Nations reports the possibility which causes the United States to close a key base and begin pulling personnel out of the violent hellhole.  Meanwhile, one of the creators of the havoc in Yemen- Iran- is demanding an immediate end to ALL sanctions imposed upon their country if the U.S. and other nations trying to engineer a ‘deal’ with Tehran want to see it happen.
  67. 2016 Tuesday:  Jihadists in Brussels, Belgium have caused loads of trouble again as they attacked a subway station and an airport killing at least 31 people and injuring another 200 plus people.  The time is coming when permitting ‘armies’ of military age Muslim males from the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa must stop or Europe will be no more.  The authorities are out seeking this riffraff.   Elsewhere, Senator Ted Cruz says it’s ‘time we begin patrolling Muslim neighborhoods in the U.S. to prevent them from becoming radicalized.’  This of course raises the ire of liberals across the country.  God, forbid we do something to protect our country.  
  68. 2017 Wednesday: Original drummer for the East Coast rock band, Boston[vii]—Sib Hashian—drops dead while performing on a cruise ship in Nassau, Bahamas; he was age 67.  Elsewhere, the House of Representatives is preparing to vote on the future of the Affordable Care Act, one of the failed Obama era messes that Donald Trump promised to end on Day 1.  Across the nation, liberals are out running riot in the streets, screaming don’t take away our healthcare.  Wah, wah, wah, everyone receiving Obamacare is receiving it thanks to government subsidies which are bankrupting the government.  Obamacare MUST GO.  NOW.
  69. 2018 Thursday: According to new scientific research, the Great Floating Island of Garbage haunting the waters between California and Hawaii contains more than 1.8 trillion pieces of garbage and thanks to China, Russia, and the Third World continues expanding by the minute.  Meanwhile, in eastern China at Yancheng, a chemical Xiangshui plant explodes with such magnitude that it registers as an earthquake, killing at least 64 and at least- according to Chinese reporting 28 missing.  Wow.
  70. 2019 Friday: Rumors continue to abound that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, nicknamed the “Boy Scout,” will soon release his more than two-plus years witch hunt into all-things Russian collusion and President Donald J. Trump.  People who either helped initiate the potential coup or who have knowledge of the farce begin distancing themselves from the impending release of the final report.   Millions of Americans hope that when the report clears the president, that the people who launched the coup- Andrew McCabe, Rod J. Rosenstein, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page, and numerous others- including Barack Hussein Obama- will face justice. 
  71. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 continues crisscrossing the world with the death toll now sitting at 15,000 with loads more to follow.  Worldwide, there are at least 340,000 confirmed cases of the bat virus with several nations such as Italy feeling the brunt of the growing pandemic.  The Gaza Strip, Afghanistan, and Syria report their first cases while German Chancellor Angela Merkel goes into self-imposed quarantine following her personal physician testing positive for this evil crap.  The U.S. is trying to prevent foreign flights coming in so as to stop the spread of the virus but in some areas, particularly Democrat-controlled areas, they aren’t taking it seriously as they should.   In Japan, the Summer Olympics are up in the air what with some nations now saying they aren’t going to send athletes.
  72. 2021 Monday:  BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I– Despite a blackout on what is occurring on the U.S. southern border with Mexico, brave souls are releasing shocking of photos of illegal aliens and illegal alien brats crammed into sardine can-like holding facilities, sleeping on cement floors with foil blankets for protection.  Where is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka the Baby Evita, where is Rashida Tlaib, where is Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and all the rest of the blubbering leftists who care so much about illegal alien kids?  Nowhere.  Let the world see them for what they are- glib hypocritical POS.   Former Acting U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf says it’s NOT an ‘open border but a LAWLESS border now’ thanks to blundering Joe Biden’s horrible America-last immigration policies.
  73. 2021 Monday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– President Donald J. Trump says his administration handed Joe Biden a secure border.  Look at it now.   As the crisis continues growing exponentially worse by the hour, the 45th president blasted the enfeebled 46th president’s border policies as inhuman, cruel, and according to us, EVIL.   Speaking of the 46th disaster, he says he will go to the border when ‘he’s good and ready.’  Uh, okay.  The problem is, you WON’T know what you are looking at, Joe, you’ll think you’re at the zoo… Elsewhere, we learn that U.S. Customs and Border Patrol interactions with family units on the southern border are up by 188 percent and illegal alien brats by 96-percent.  Build the wall and deport them all.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Monday B: POLITICAL NEWS– Congressman Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district received an endorsement from President Donald J. Trump as he runs to unseat RINO Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, an extremely corrupt individual who colluded with Governor Brian Kemp and political hack Stacey Abrams to throw the 2020 Presidential Election to stumbling, bumbling old Joe Biden in the Peach State.  Even more embarrassing for Mr. Raffensperger is the fact that HIS county- Fulton County- banned him from serving as a delegate in any upcoming elections.  Ouch.  Congressman Hice thanks President Trump saying his endorsement has led to an overwhelming response in support.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump says that Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘is hanging by a thread in the upcoming battle to end the Senate filibuster rule.’  (Note- we also learn that dark money is funding efforts to end the filibuster rule).
  75. 2021 Monday C: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Pro-Death Joe Biden is facing a growing backlash from the Catholic (and other religious affiliations) over his rabid support of abortion at all stages of gestation and even after birth.  IF Pope Francis were not a liberal-socialist, some say, ‘communist,’ he would excommunicate Biden, his family, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and loads of other Pro-Death Democrats and liberals.  Pope Francis- do your job, excommunicate these Catholic-in-Name-only, aka CINO, abortion-loving losers.  NOW.  Next, Joe Biden (well, the voice in his ear) says he is going to move to bolster Obamacare prior to its upcoming 11th anniversary.  What a disaster.  Biden (the voice) also says that his administration must prepare to get $3 trillion in additional spending on the road NOW.
  76. 2021 Monday D: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Russia regrets the United States lack of support for public talks between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin.  Elsewhere, for the first time this year, Russian warplanes carried out airstrikes on rebel positions in northwestern Syria.  Blow those bastards to hell, boys!  Next, the U.S. sanctions two Chinese officials for their roles in repressing Uighur Muslims.   Speaking of the Chinese, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘we cannot reward communist China by allowing them to hold the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing.’  Numerous nations around the world are joining the movement to either boycott the games or to see them moved elsewhere. 
  77. 2021 Monday E: MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRES AND OTHER CRIME NEWS– A Chinese American group condemns, we repeat, condemns CRITICAL RACE THEORY as being the new form of Maoism.  How soon do we see Red Guards going door to door in the streets?  Instead of lamenting the dead in the Atlanta killings, the Democrats are using the dead to stir their evil-smelling pot of fecal matter to continue their race-baiting ways as well as to steal guns from the American people.  Speaking of the Massage Parlor Massacres, the feds say there is “NO EVIDENCE that the shooter’s crimes were racially motivated thus no federal hate crimes charges can be filed against the sex addict shooter.’  This of course drives all liberals insane.  Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO, says that the politization of the crimes is a ‘calculation’ on the part of the Democrats.   Speaking of crime, the judge in the Derek Chauvin trial has seated the 14th and final juror in the upcoming trial.   
  78. 2021 Monday F: SCOTUS NEWS– The John Roberts U.S. Supreme Court will weigh reinstating the Boston Marathon Bomber’s death sentence.  Folks- just execute this POS, he does not need to sit on death row for the next 40 years.  Next, the Supreme Court won’t take up the case about Facebook tracking its users.  Speaking of Facebook, they claim to have removed 1.3 billion false accounts between October to December of last year.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– The Los Angeles teachers’ union agrees to reopen schools sometime in April.  (Note- teachers have NO clue as to what is heading their way, the discipline problems are going to be off the charts.  We expect to see teachers and administrators assaulted, beaten, raped, and murdered because the young people with socialization skills are going to amped up more than anyone can comprehend.  It’s going to be ugly).  Elsewhere, Miami Beach, Florida, has had to slap on a curfew from 8:00 p.m. to sometime the next morning because of fights, havoc, and people crowding together.   Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and Elon Musk are arguing over wealth and how best to spend it.  Mr. Musk, whatever Bernie says, do the EXACT opposite.  Finally, newbie Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, is tying gun control together with voting rights.  (Note- Georgia- vote this POS out of office next year).   
  80. 2021 Monday H: AICPENDBLOG.COM ENDORSEMENT– We endorse former Assistant Administrator of the Small Business Administration Sery Kim to fill the open House seat in Texas’ 6th congressional district.  The Special General Election will occur on May 1, 2021.
  81. 2021 Monday I: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 123,516,699 confirmed cases, +552,287, 2,917,703, confirmed deaths, +7,956, and 69,975,879 confirmed recoveries, +327,920.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 30,054,603 confirmed cases, up 43,422 from yesterday’s reporting, 548,172 confirmed deaths, UP 718, and 116,975,502 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. 
  82. 2021 Monday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 219,704 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Centers for Disease Control says that California ranks 44th in Chi-Vi vaccine equity.  F**k equity, just distribute this crap to whomever wants it and for those that don’t, stop guilting them.  Meanwhile, AstraZeneca reports that U.S. data shows that their vaccine is 79-percent effective.  
  83. 2021 Monday J: 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: 3,643,252 confirmed cases, 57,679 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,834 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 357,443 confirmed cases, 5,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- U.S. Virgin Islands: currently, they have 2,767 confirmed cases, 25 confirmed deaths, and 2,653 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,672 confirmed cases, 6,102 confirmed deaths, and 807,341 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Sweden, home of pissed-off Greta Thunberg: 744,272 cases of the virus, 13,262 confirmed deaths but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  
  84. 2021 Monday K:   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,731.20, UP 103.23 points (+0.32%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,377.54, UP 162.31 points (+1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,940.59, UP 27.49 points (+0.70%).  The price of GOLD is $1,737.80 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.82 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.20%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,186.50 per troy oz, +2.50 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, 0.00 (-0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,186.50 per troy oz, -4.50 (-0.38%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.00 per troy oz, +45.00 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.19 per barrel, -0.40 (-0.61%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.57.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Bahraini Dinar, one greenback equals 0.38.  
  85. 2021 Monday L: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.597 in Hawaii, and $3.317 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,082,074,861,052 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.
  86. 2021 Monday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– George W. Bush political advisor Karl Rove is planning on holding a fund-raiser for politically dead man-walking Congressman Adam Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district.  That’s Karl Rove for you.  The guy is probably thinking he’s going to trot out Jeb Bush for another go in 2024.  One thing we can guarantee you, the era of voting for the lesser of two evils– meaning voting for a RINO instead of a Democrat has ended. If we’re going to go socialist, then we’re going to go socialist so what difference does it make if it’s next year or in three years or whatever?  NO MORE RINOs.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s national security adviser says it wasn’t a mistake to call Vladimir Putin a ‘killer.’  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the battle of mail-in ballots is raging in the Florida statehouse.  We don’t want mail-in ballots.   Next, the push to make the federal district of Washington, D.C., is beginning in the U.S. Senate.  Washington, D.C. was NEVER meant to be a state.   Finally, accusers of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo claim the Lov Gov is interfering in the harassment probe into his scandalous activities and actions.  The man is a groper.
  87. 2021 Monday N: CRIME NEWS– In Boulder, Colorado, a lone gunman carrying a rifle shot and killed 10 people- including a law enforcement office- at a King Soopers Grocery Store.  The shooting began around 2:30 P.M. and within minutes, a line of emergency vehicles and first responders ringed the store.  Law enforcement then went in and subdued the scumbag.  He’s in custody.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice has announced that it is considering hitting the Oath Keepers with SEDITION charges for their part in the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots.  The question is, WILL the Justice Department file similar charges against Antifa and Black Lives Matter as both groups infiltrated Trump supporters and engineered one of the largest FALSE FLAG operations in modern U.S. history.   
  88. 2021 Monday O: In other crazy news, RINO Bill Kristol, one of the all-time great phonies is supporting making Washington, D.C., a state while also advocating the invasion of Cuba and making that one a state, too.  This worthless phony has never seen a Third World War for which he didn’t advocate, and NO one should waste time listening to this dumb ass.  The time for jingoism ended when at the end of the Mexican-American War, the U.S. didn’t absorb the land between our southern border all the way down to Columbia just as after the Spanish-American War, we didn’t keep Cuba, too.  Next thing you know, Bill Kristol is going to want to make Afghanistan a U.S. commonwealth or at least a territory.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Stick around…

40. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 09, 2022

2021 Tuesday I: Good news for Christians and Jews: a judge strikes down New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s ban on religious gatherings at churches and synagogues (but you know the cowardly fool would NEVER close mosques- they’d take him out in a heartbeat). We learn today from immigration experts that the United States has 14.5 million illegal aliens and 5 million anchor babies which is conservative estimate to be sure.

  59. 2019 Saturday: Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth “I’m a Cherokee” Warren[v] announces her official bid for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in the city of Lawrence.  How this unattractive and dishonest individual thinks she can win the presidency is beyond any of us here at the AICP-END Blogs.  She has used one of the most maligned racial minorities in the history of the country as her springboard to virtually everything she has earned in life.  She should be disqualified.
  60. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to the ineptitude (or purposefulness, we are reserving judgment at present), the death toll of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu now stands at 910 people which is higher than the reported death toll of the SARS epidemic that broke out in 2002 and lasted until 2004.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Chi-Com warplanes conducting ‘military drills’ off the coast of the Republic of China- Taiwan- circle the freedom-loving island.  This leads the Taiwanese Defense Ministry to call out their belligerent neighbors for threatening their sovereignty.  (We should give Taiwan some nukes- just saying…).    
  61. 2021 Tuesday: Eighty-two different advocacy groups call on the Biden administration to end all federal executions.  Speaking of the Biden administration, he announced plans to fire ALL Trump-appointed U.S. federal attorneys.  However, the U.S. attorney overseeing the Hunter Biden probe is NOT going anywhere soon.  Next, Joe Biden’s nomination to head the OMB vows to work with the GOP following a row on Twitter.  As the ‘re-impeachment trial’ of Donald Trump opens, neither the former president nor the ‘current president’ are making any statements.   Regarding this bogus sham waste of time, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says the prosecutors’ arguments are ‘ambiguous’ this after Congressman Jaime Raskin laid out the ‘charges’ against the 45th president.   
  62. 2021 Tuesday A: In communist China, the World Health Organization personnel on site says, ‘the Wuhan Institute of Virology is the UNLIKELY origination point for the Chi-Vi, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu,  There you go, the WHO covers up for their Chinese masters.   Thanks to the Wuhan Virus Crisis, in the U.S.- unless relief comes soon- millions of small businesses could close by year’s end.  Many believe that this is precisely the game plan the Dems are using because if small businesses close, everyone will be working for the massive corporations.  This is a fascist form of government in which BIG CORPORATIONS are in bed with BIG GOVERNMENT as it was in Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and in modern-day communist China.  Evil.   Speaking of fascism, Hong Kong denies bail to pro-democracy advocate Jimmy Lai.  Meanwhile, Iran says, “Western policies could force them into building nuclear bombs’ as though they are not already working on them lickety-split.
  63. 2021 Tuesday B: In another blow to the expectations of Californians being throttled by the Newsom Regime, California High-Speed Rail Authority is seeking another $4 billion to toss down the rabbit hole on this never-ending wealth redistribution scheme.  Elsewhere, in Arizona, the Republican-controlled state Senate loses a narrow vote in which the state’s leaders and GOP leadership wanted a full audit of the crappy Dominion Voting Systems machines used- ALLEGEDLY- to throw the 2020 Presidential Election to ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and away from President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, My Pillow creator and CEO Mike Lindell calls for an open public debate on the ALLEGED election chicanery Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software in the 2020 Presidential Election.  Amen.   Finally, Tampa Bay city government is busting the balls of Governor Ron DeSantis for not having worn a facemask at the Super Bowl.  These people doing the bitching are like body lice- annoying tidbits of nothing.
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: A federal judge in Texas has put a freeze on Joe Biden’s deportation ban.   Meanwhile, the New York Attorney General Leticia James urges the FDA to look into improving the standards on baby food.  Elsewhere, Ohio serial killer Anthony Sowell, a man who murdered 11 women of whom we know, died in prison.  Meanwhile, Mary Wilson- original founding member of the Supremes (later Diana Ross and the Supremes) dies at age 76.  Next, Palm Beach, Florida, says ‘Donald Trump can live at his own resort- Mar-a-Lago as long as he is a ‘bona fide employee.’  WTF?  Hotel magnates live in their hotels, who gives Palm Beach the right to determine who can live and who cannot live somewhere?   Finally, the pilot in the crash that killed Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and several other people is said to have become disoriented in heavy fog.
  65. 2021 Tuesday D: Tesla’s investment of $1.5 billion into Bitcoin drives a single Bitcoin up to $48,000.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate votes 56-44 that the second impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump is constitutional and can proceed.    One thing we learned today is that President Donald J. Trump authorized as many as 10,000 members of the National Guard to arrive in Washington, D.C. ahead of January 6, 2021, so as to maintain law and order.  Elsewhere, federal and state cybersecurity authorities are investigating an intrusion into Florida in which, an unknown entity sought to poison a town’s water supply.   Next, Senator Joe Manchin, Democrat, of the Senate Energy Committee begs Joe Biden not to scrap the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline.   Finally, Joe Biden’s pick to lead the CIA appears to be intricately linked to Chinese businessmen with close ties to the Chinese Communist Party- WTF, Joe?  Can you sell out our country quickly enough? 
  66. 2021 Tuesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 106,643,519 confirmed cases, +328,824, 2,330,839, confirmed deaths, +10,119, and 59,549,395 confirmed recoveries, +246,096.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,382,078 confirmed cases, up 114,433 from yesterday’s reporting, 470,660 confirmed deaths, UP 2,792, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least two weeks.  This tells us the Biden administration does not want them reported.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 141,265 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  67. 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,430,685 confirmed cases, 44,470 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,500 confirmed cases, 418 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 326,625 confirmed cases, 4,540 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: North Carolina: currently, they have 802,820 confirmed cases, 10,046 confirmed deaths but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 696,528 confirmed cases, 5,171 confirmed deaths, and 633,313 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- France: they have 3,341,365 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 79,423 confirmed deaths, and 208,925 confirmed recoveries.   We will say this: the primary purpose of the Chi-Vi was to remove the threat of Trump- the Chi-Coms accomplished that goal.  The secondary goal (or so we believe) is to ‘cleanse the world’ of the old, the infirm, the sick, and the mentally disabled.  Anyone else who died from this Wuhan Institute of Virology lab-engineered virus is just collateral damage.  Shame on the Chi-Coms!
  69. 2021 Tuesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,375.83 DOWN 9.93 points (-0.032%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,007.70, UP 20.05 points (+0.14%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,911.23, DOWN 4.36 points (-0.11%).  The price of GOLD is $1,838.80 per troy oz., +1.30 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.33 per troy ounce, -0.07 (-0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,190.20 per troy oz, -4.20 (-0.45%) while the price of COPPER is $3.72 per pound, -0.000 (-0.04%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,320.60 per troy oz, -16.10 (-0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $58.38 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000022.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Good news for Christians and Jews: a judge strikes down New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s ban on religious gatherings at churches and synagogues (but you know the cowardly fool would NEVER close mosques- they’d take him out in a heartbeat).  We learn today from immigration experts that the United States has 14.5 million illegal aliens and 5 million anchor babies which is conservative estimate to be sure.  Sources within the federal government have said the estimates of illegal aliens are close to 30-50 million illegals and Joe Biden does not want to deport them.  Speaking of Usurper Joe, he says that by April of this year, he wants schools to be open at least ONE DAY per week.  Wow.  His wife, Dr. Jill Biden says the Biden administration is going to make junior college FREE.  Another bill the taxpayers are going to fund.  Meanwhile, U.S. Transportation Secretary Mayor Pete Buttigieg says the administration is thinking about demanding NEGATIVE COVID-19 TESTS before anyone can board an airplane.  Good going, Picolo Pete!
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: We learn this evening that Joe Biden’s pick to head the Central Intelligence Agency- William Burns- is…wait for it…closed tied to communist China.  WTF is going on.  Can the people selling the country out to the Chi-Coms at least be discreet about it?  This is insane.   Next Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Chuck Schumer are asking Biden to up the relief bill so that people will receive money for Chinese Virus burials of loved ones.  What else will the government spend our money on?  Elsewhere, Representative Lee Zeldin, R-NY, says that ‘both the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, were as predetermined as is the farce occurring in the U.S. Senate what with the ‘re-impeachment’ or ‘second impeachment’ of President Donald J. Trump.  (NOTE- I am writing a post this Saturday in which I lay out the real reason the Dems are doing what they’re doing, and it lies within what President Trump’s defense attorneys said- IF the Democrats genuinely believed that Trump was guilty of inciting an insurrection against the government, federal charges would be brought against him.  Period.  But they haven’t which screeches of bogus impeachment.  Well, like Doug Mackey, Democrats are reaching B-A-C-K to 2016 to go after their enemies so why NOT bring federal charges against Donald Trump whenever he announces he is going to run- or even better- when he wins the GOP nomination?  Never say never).
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: The famed Aunt Jemima brand has been renamed the Pearl Milling Company.  Meanwhile, we learn that this year’s Super Bowl ratings were the worst since 2007- coming in at 91 million viewers.  It’s been a strange year, folks what with the Chi-Com Bat Virus sweeping the globe, the one the W.H.O. now says came from the Wuhan wet market.   Elsewhere, a judge informs George Soros’ handpicked D.A. George Gascon in Los Angeles, California, that he cannot- we repeat CANNOT set the law aside and do whatever the hell he wants to do like not charge thugs and criminals because it’s RACIST.  Send Gascon to county…
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Here are the winning numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1632 with a $68 million big pot o’ cash up for grabs: 07, 18, 21, 31, 40, and Mega 09.  Out of 80,331 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,103 apiece.
  74. 2022 Wednesday: Amigos, ya saben lo que hay que hacer: quédense para conocer los acontecimientos del día como sólo yo puedo contarles…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s studio album, “Myths and Heroes,” came out on January 25, 2015, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 13 glorious tracks, all of which being originals and the other four covers.  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).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] Beginning in 2019, Democratic Chairman of the Intel Committee- Adam Schiff, congressman from California- would employ the same tactics to bring down President Donald J. Trump but would fail…miserably.  The loser is a POS while Trump has done nothing his political enemies accuse of him doing.

[ii] In 2020, many believe this loser might throw his hat into the race for the Democratic Party’s 2020 nomination.  Go for it, John, go for it, you, and Hillary Clinton both and if Michelle wants to run, she should throw her bonnet into the running, too.

[iii] Millions of Americans believe there should be an asterisk after the name of the 44th president because they believe he was foreign-born thus being disqualified from holding the highest office in the land.  Many of us here at the AICP-END Blogs agree with this assessment and believe that most of the readership does, too.

[iv] Many speculate that Donald Trump funded this loser via strawmen so he would remain in the race mucking things up for others like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.  At one time, Gov. Kasich was a normal guy but like many left-leaning RINOS, somewhere along the way, he “lost it.”

[v] The previous Friday, most of the women of color working for “Lyin’ Liz” in Arizona left the office, citing hostile workplace issues.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention released a remastered version of a live album recorded back in 1970- “Live at the L.A. Troubadour” (January 23, 1977) on May 23, 2013.  For a British folk-rock band, this is a delightfully hot album featuring Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, and mandolins), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolin, vocals), and Dave Mattacks (drums).  Richard Thompson’s fretwork alone is well worth the price of admission as is the glorious setlist which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music.  After all, Thompson deserves to be up there with the likes of Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Eric “Slow-hand” Clapton, Alvin Lee, Robin Trower, Kim Simmonds, even Peter Green, Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, and Bob Welch.   You will be so glad you looked into this album we guarantee it.  Enjoy.

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

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

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

[iv] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.

[v] We are not sure when we will begin offering the music of Blue Öyster Cult but expect it will be sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned.

[vi] We promoted the music of the greatest blues-rock-British-boogie band, Savoy Brown, beginning on Friday, 28-January-2011 through Monday, 28-February-2011.  Kim Simmonds is one of the greatest guitarists of all time which is why everyone should check the music of this fabulous band out ASAP.

[vii] We began promoting the music of Foghat, one of the all-time greatest rock bands to explode out of England, beginning on Monday, 18-February-2018 through Monday, 19-March-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this celebrated group out by checking out the blog posts on those dates.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
