210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.

  52. 2014 Tuesday: In Sierra Leone during the Ebola virus crisis, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan succumbs to the disease himself, the principal physician battling against it.  Meanwhile, in Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, the authorities claim that 100 of their citizens were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  IF Palestinians were killed, it’s because they were acting the fool- like usual.  In the wake of this, France announces it will send 8-million euros in aid to the Gaza.  Good for them, virtue-signaling is always good.
  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.
  54. 2016 Friday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party.  Needless to say, her fellow Democrats fall into a celebratory swoon and sex workers around the city see the numbers of their patrons spike.  Virginia Senator Tim Kaine becomes her running mate.  What a pair of losers.
  55. 2017 Saturday: U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint live-fire exercises in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile; experts said the North Korean launch showed that a substantial portion of the United States was now within the range of Kim Jong Un’s arsenal of missiles. 
  56. 2018 Sunday: Students in Dhaka, Bangladesh, launch protests around the nation demanding safer roadways.  In a country as poor as this one, they are incapable of doing the necessary infrastructure work to make their nation safe.
  57. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number.  Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  58. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $3.114.  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- Philippines: $4.590 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,579,970,824,046 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  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 Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 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.
  68. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

[iv] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

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

[vii] 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.

  45. 2011 Thursday: Astronomers identify a Trojan asteroid orbiting on the same path as the Earth around the Sun; it poses no danger to Earth because it sits in a gravitational ‘sweet spot’.  Meanwhile, as the Obama administration continues its fight to get the debt ceiling raised so it can continue its out-of-control spending spree, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner, RINO-OH, puts the kibosh on a vote on the floor to do just that.  He says, ‘maybe tomorrow.’  Democrats are going berserk.

  51. 2017 Friday:  In the U.S. Senate, the GOP attempted to repeal Obamacare via a ‘skinny vote’ yet Sen. John McCain, a Republican, joins the Democrats to vote the measure down, final vote 51-49.  What a POS.  Barack Hussein Obama[ix] beat Sen. McCain like an old drum on Election Day in 2016, belittled him over the years, and yet, the old war horse- hating Donald Trump as much as he does- voted to keep the signature legislation of his political enemy.  Damned flipping RINOS!  Meanwhile, President Trump appoints General John Kelly his new chief-of-staff.

  52. 2018 Saturday: Having burnt more than 80,000 acres in its path, the out-of-control Carr Fire reaches Redding, California, claiming at least 5 lives, injuring countless others, and destroying numerous properties.  The liberal Democrats screech “GLOBAL WARMING!” yet everyone knows it is poor forest management as stipulated by the Democratic Party as well as their loathness about building dams and constructing water reclamation projects.
  53. 2019 Sunday: The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is outed as the first guest editor at the United Kingdom version of Vogue Magazine, the first guest in 103 years.  She would bear partial responsibility with her husband, Prince Harry, for damaging the British Royal Family.  That is what you get when you marry an American skank.
  54. 2020 Tuesday: Much to the delight of their uber-left base, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee overseeing ‘oversight’ on the Dept. of Justice rip U.S. Attorney-General Bill Barr a new one by asking questions and then disallowing the AG to answer them properly.  The amount of political grandstanding was absolutely horrible but then, those are the Democratic-Socialists who are destroying our country.  GOP committee members did their best to even the score but that becomes impossible when there are more, angry, hateful Dems on the committee than Republicans.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s Prevagen must be working because after giving a speech, he even answered some questions, going off-script several times but not quite as much as we are generally used to seeing so either his handlers were putting in answers to pre-asked questions or the former vice president had a brief moment of lucidity.  He promised to make his VP choice known next week.
  55. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 16,660,138 confirmed cases, UP by 263,184 cases, 658,813 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,911 deaths, and 9,699,116 confirmed recoveries, UP by 186,555 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,426,281 confirmed cases, UP by 58,202 new cases, 151,374 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,175 new deaths, and 2,151,219 confirmed recoveries, UP by 841,971 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries seems somewhat impossible as every day, the listed number of recoveries is extremely low.  Perhaps more states have reported recoveries yet if you look at the breakdown of the states, far fewer have reported so something is going on…).   
  56. 2020 Tuesday 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: 466,550 confirmed cases, 8,518 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,757 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,205 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 54,205 confirmed cases, 1,548 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 412,878 confirmed number of cases, 25,126 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you suck-eyed blowfish, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.    
  57. 2020 Tuesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,378.28, DOWN 205.49 points (-0.77%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,402.09, DOWN 134.18 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,218.44, DOWN 20.97 points (-0.65%).  The price of GOLD is $1,948.70 per troy oz., +4.50 (+0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $24.33 per troy ounce, +0.03 (+0.12%).  The price of PLATINUM is $974.50 per troy oz, -11.70 (-1.19%) while the price of COPPER is $2.91 per pound, -0.0055 (-0.19%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.05 per barrel, +0.01 (+0.02%).

  59. 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 309,614 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 94,464 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  60. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,932,008 confirmed cases, 64,331 confirmed deaths, and 2,095,763 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,579,701 confirmed cases, 38,840 confirmed deaths, and 2,285,522 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 41,069 confirmed cases, 532 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 471,802 confirmed cases, 6,144 confirmed deaths, and 229,976 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Indiana: they have 768,624 confirmed cases, 13,993 confirmed deaths, and 735,115 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]    
  61. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 867,240 confirmed cases, 6,462 confirmed deaths, and 845,831 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Channel Islands, 162nd area on the list: 8,926 cases of the virus, 86 confirmed deaths and 5,831 confirmed recoveries. [xiv]     
  62. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,930.93, DOWN 127.59 points (-0.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,762.58, UP 102.01 points (+0.70%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,400.64, DOWN 0.82 points (-0.019%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.41 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,807.20 per troy oz., +7.50 (+0.42%) while the price of SILVER is $25.07 per troy ounce, +0.19 (+0.76%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,067.50 per troy oz, +9.40 (+0.89%) while the price of COPPER is $4.48 per pound, -0.01 (-0.11%).[xv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,631.80 per troy oz, +2.48 (+0.09%).[xvi] The price of RHODIUM is $18,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).

[xvii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Gibraltar Pound, one greenback equals 0.72 and in Guatemalan Quetzal, a buck equals 7.74 and in Guinean Franc, one dollar equals 9,711.00 of theirs. [xviii]        
  63. 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 $4.336 per gallon, $2.978 in Florida, $4.087 in Hawaii, and $3.839 in Washington state. [xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.395.  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- Mali: $4.572 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,575,821,402,785 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 127 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the unmitigated disaster along our southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it other than to say some stupid stuff here and then begin cackling like a rural crow.  It’s also Day No. 33 since her one and only visit to the border to view the crisis firsthand.  What an embarrassment to not only the country but to the entire flipping world.   Next, here are the numbers as presented by Pro-Freedom One America News: first, here is the cost this day for caring for the invaders: $584,652,608.  Second, here is the cost for caring for the alien invaders this year: $228,529,913,856.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who swept across the border just this year: 2,342,248.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE number of illegals estimated to be lurking within the shadows of the United States as we speak: 36,342,248.  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said from our inception back in the early spring of 2009 that the numbers THEN were around 35-50 million illegal aliens whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million frigging illegal aliens.  Round them up, brand them, and then deport every single flipping one of the scoundrels back to the s—hole countries from whence they came.  NOW.  (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).
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The moron governor of California- Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom- struggling to keep his job- today granted Medi-Cal insurance to ALL illegal aliens in the state over the age of 50 which is around 250,000 of them at taxpayer costs.  We hope to get you out of office and then begin rounding this refuse up and sending it back to whence it came.  Bastards.
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Imprisoned freedom fighter Alexei Navalny is urging ALL Russians to mobilize ahead of the September elections.   In other news, the fifth high-ranking Cuban military officer or politician has mysteriously died.  They must have been standing with the Cuban people against the totalitarian, communist government.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms are courting the Taliban so they can come into the hellhole of a country and rape it of its natural resources while constructing their Belt and Road communist takeover project.  (We hope the Chi-Coms become embroiled in yet another war in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires’ for at least 40 years- it would serve them right).   In other overseas news, for some unknown reason, Joe Biden is imposing NEW SANCTIONS on Syria.  Uh, okay.  WHY?  They are NOT our problem.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The National Football League is going to require vaccinated players to wear RED wristbands and unvaccinated players to wear YELLOW wristbands (while terminating coaches and staff who won’t get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines).   In other Chi-Vi news, the U.S. House of Representatives physician, Dr. Brian Monahan, a Pelosi hack, has ordered EVERYONE to wear masks in the House.  NO exceptions.  Meanwhile, so-called ‘rare’ BREAKTHROUGH cases of the Chi-Vi are slamming into fully vaccinated citizens, something mumbling, stumbling old ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden says is ‘impossible.’    
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, vaccinated U.S. travelers won’t have to quarantine upon arrival in Great Britain. Wow.  Elsewhere, New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio gave up on giving people a free bag of French fries and is now offering $100 to anyone who will go out and get vaccinated.  F**k him.  Elsewhere, intelligent politicians and medical professionals have pointed out that the rates of hospitalizations for the China Virus are a better indicator as to how bad the ongoing pandemic is which means it is NOT as bad as what the Democrats are pushing because fewer people are being hospitalized for the Kung Flu.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says he’s ‘not flipflopped, no, the virus has changed.’  Elsewhere, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, famed legal scholar, author, and professor said to Newsmax that the ‘courts will likely back COVID-19 vaccination mandates.’  Scary.  MARK OF THE BEAST to be sure… (Interesting note- Forbes Magazine reports that there are 40 NEW BILLIONAIRES who have become fabulously wealthy from the Chi-Com lab-generated pandemic).
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Meanwhile, as more images of COVID-19-infected illegal aliens appear across the country, more and more Americans on all sides of the political aisle are growing increasingly angrier.  There are reports of sick illegals being dumped all across the U.S.- most notably in RED states and cities- and left in the streets.  There, they spread not only the Wuhan Virus but other foul and detestable diseases that can or are causing a national health emergency.  A national reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon and with House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s margin being slashed to just THREE with the election of Republican Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th congressional district, we hope that reckoning is coming and it’s coming soon.
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– Top Democrats are encouraging brain-dead Joe Biden to negate $50,000 loan debt per student borrower.  This is more money the federal government is going to borrow from the Chi-Coms.  Talk about a National Security issue.  Man, oh, man.   In other news, the new DEATH TAX the Democratic-Socialist Party is proposing could cost 1 million jobs and $1 trillion of U.S. GDP over the next 10 years.  WTF is wrong with these SOBs?   In other news, Senate Republicans have agreed to $1 trillion in infrastructure spending. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, that she ‘stacked the January 06, 2021 (sham) select committee’ with a bunch of party apparatchiks and RINO Republicans.  Speaking of Mumbles, Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, lit up the House speaker over her demand that everyone wear masks while allowing millions of illegals into the country and then distributing them across the United States without masks and COVID-19 tests.  WTF is up with that?
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– An imbecile named Thomas Patrick Connally Jr. was charged in a Maryland federal court with threatening to murder Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and his family as well as the National Institute of Health director, Dr. Francis Collins.  Apparently, the bonehead was sending threatening emails to Dr. Fauci, Dr. Collins, and to others and now must pay the piper.  There are always some in every crowd.  We would never call for anyone to be attacked, assaulted, raped, robbed, or beaten.  Like Democrats, we might participate in schadenfreude as do the Dems and frankly, millions of their supporters, we would never encourage any illegal act, even when we jokingly talk about ‘lead to the back of the head’ in the Annual Lavrentiy Beria contests.  It’s all for a hoot.  In other crime news, BIG DEMOCRAT donor (and big friend of the Clintons) Ed Buck from West Hollywood, California, was convicted on all nine counts of giving methamphetamine to young black men for sex, two of whom died.  Wow.   Finally, in Joe Biden’s America, convicted pedophile and rapist Dr. Larry Nassar received COVID-19 stimulus checks but has yet to pay restitution to his victims.  ONLY in Joe Biden’s America…speaking of Joe’s America, the Department of Justice is dropping investigations into nursing home deaths in Michigan and New York.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Big Tech News– Apple beats fiscal Q3 earnings expectations.  Likewise, Alphabet- the parent company of Google- is reporting surging ad revenues.   Speaking of Google, they are delaying the return of employees to their office while mandating ALL employees get one of the Chi-Vi vaccines before they do or to find another job.
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, today, famed bassist and vocalist with the ‘Little ole Band from Texas’- ZZ Top- Dusty Hill died in his sleep this morning at the age of 72.  He died in Houston, Texas, and his death was reported by his two band mates, Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard.  According to his wishes, the band will continue to perform their fiery brand of Texas-Deep South Blues.  God bless you, Dusty, have a glorious afterlife!
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3581 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 20, 24, 32, 35, 39, and Mega 25.  Out of 85,662 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $7,862 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Valero, Salinas, CA 93906; (2) Smart & Final in Goleta, CA 93117; (3) Raley’s in Sacramento, CA 95826; and (4) Shell in Palmdale, CA 93551.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #867 with a jackpot of $186 million up for grabs: 25, 30, 53, 59, 60, and Powerball 05.  Stick around for the results.  Update: Out of 77,278 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $10,200.
  76. 2022 Thursday: California’s incredibly stupid governor, pretty boy Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, has bitten off far more than his pursy little lips can chew: he has launched ads against Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas.  For some reason known only to his petulant little mind, Governor Newsom seems to believe he has a record on which to run.  Wrong!  His record is one of failure and the ONLY reason he survived his recall election is because the GOP did not get behind any of his opponents seeking to unseat the little prick.  I have said it before and will say it yet again: California is not a LOST state.  We are a state waiting to explode.  IF only the GOP would come in here and help us push Brian Dahle across the finish line, we could get this bum out of office.  Perhaps if the GOP won’t do it, we cannot wait to see the ads the governors of Texas and Florida are going to launch at him come late October.  Going to be some grisly but hilarious s**t, we expect.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys record label released “Carl and the Passions- So Tough” and “Holland” on one compact disc on April 21, 2003.  Here is the overview of each: The next album by the Beach Boys marked a distinct move into much more social consciousness that began on the preceding album.  The Beach Boys were touring college and university campuses, were all about conservation, the grandfather of today’s loony tunes ‘green movement.’  Beards were getting longer, hair well past the collars and what with the departure of Bruce Johnston- asked to leave because he would not grow a beard, embrace Transcendental Meditation- the band brought into South African musicians, BLACK MUSICIANS to complete the social consciousness move.  Thus, we have a new album, “Carl and the Passions- So Tough,” an album that came out on May 15, 1972.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals- Dennis was having hand problems due to a major cut that prevented him from pounding the skins).  Next, here is the overview of “Holland”:  The next album from the Beach Boys- “Holland”- came out on January 08, 1973 and was one of their best.  The band at this time had abandoned the West Coast for the Atlantic coast- in Holland- and produced some stunning material.  The lineup once again featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals).  Every tune on this album is excellent.  For less than $20, you can add not one but two albums to your collection in one shot.  Enjoy.

[i] We began offering the musi of Pink Floyd beginning on Monday, 20-April-2020 through Sunday, 12-July-2020.  This included not only the band’s music but also that of all five members- Syd Barrett, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Rick Wright, and Nicky Mason.

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

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

[iv] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[v] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[ix] Millions of Americans believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[x] We would come to learn later that Gen. John Kelly was a dishonorable man who worked against the Trump agenda instead of working to help his boss.  The man is a disgraceful swamp creature and should spend the rest of his days living in shame.

118. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 2022

2003 Wednesday: U.S. forces open fire on a group of Iraqi protesters in Fallujah, Iraq, after they began throwing things and making threats. This would be the focal point for the buildup to what would become known as the Battle of Fallujah in 2004, a make-or-break effort in the unnecessary invasion launched by the George W. Bush administration. (Note- we think this is a prime example of the Deep State influencing a president into a war and then when it goes wrong, they abandon them to their fate).

  76. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Joe Biden is sending $310 million to Guatemala to ‘help them’ stem the tide of illegal aliens flowing north through their country to the United States; we’ll see.  Speaking of the border, Customs and Border Patrol reports that last month, the feds took 170,000 illegal aliens into custody.   Elsewhere, the Biden regime-controlled U.S. Department of Justice has quietly repealed Trump era restrictions on the amount of federal aid going to ‘sanctuary cities’ and ‘sanctuary states.’   Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is blasting the Biden regime for NOT permitting him entry into the illegal alien holding pens in Donna, Texas.
  77. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm is receiving loads of criticism over the numerous conflicts of interest surrounding her such as her connections to an electric vehicle automaker.   The secretary has millions of dollars of stock in Proterra, a company that will benefit- as will she- depending upon which way she goes in doling out taxpayer dollars.  Wow.  Next, Joe Biden taps anti-Trumper Harris County, Texas, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement, aka ICE.   Meanwhile, tonight’s ‘Joe Biden address to a joint session of Congress’ will be devoid of a ‘designated survivor.’  So says White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki because hardly anyone will be in attendance.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday H: Joe Biden Regime News II– Tonight is the NIGHT, folks, Joe is going to reveal yet another multi-trillion bill, his so-called “Family Plan,” that will require of ALL Americans forced preschool for 3-and-4-year-olds so we can indoctrinate the kids at an earlier age and teach them to rat out their parents.  This is NOT good, and parents must resist this crap.  Political strategist says that Joe Biden ‘won’t reveal the sticker shock’ which means it is going to be COSTLY.   Next, Joe Biden is going to name longtime Marxist political hack, Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel to become U.S. ambassador to Japan.  Finally, former governor and Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Eric Greitens says that “Biden-Harris first one-hundred days is marked by failure.”  You are preaching to the choir, sir.  (Note- although we mentioned this yesterday, we will mention it again- the Washington Post, aka WAPO, says it ‘won’t fact check “Pro-China Joe” Biden the way it did President Donald J. Trump.’  Wow).[xxi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘Biden administration (i.e., the regime) displays schizophrenic undertones as it seeks de-escalation and confrontation at the same time.’  Absolutely true.  Next, as the truth continues to hit the presses over Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations in doing business with Iran while a private citizen, Congressman Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that the allegations against ‘Lurch’ appear to be ‘somewhat treasonous.’   Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district says, ‘Kerry MUST resign.’  We concur.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that the U.S. pullout of Afghanistan could lead to a takeover of the country by the Taliban.  Finally, the U.S. sees major rollbacks on the sanctions placed atop Iran so the U.S. can return to the bogus Iran nuclear deal.
  80. 2021 Wednesday J: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– In the craziest news of the day, we learn that crackhead/pedophile presidential son, Hunter “Crack Pipe” Biden is going to teach a class on FAKE NEWS at New Orleans’ Tulane University.  WTF?  In other whacked-out news, Democrats are demanding that the FCC block the sale of a popular radio station so that Miami Latinos CANNOT listen to conservative talk radio.  WTF?  Meanwhile, co-founder of the San Francisco-based $2 billion startup company, Iterable, Justin Zhu, was fired for micro-dosing LSD prior to a board meeting back in 2019.  Seems rather late to be terminating someone for something that occurred 2.5-3 years ago.  Strange.  Finally, a contestant on “Jeopardy!” made the ‘OK’ gesture and is under fire for being a white supremacist.  People, give it a F***ING REST already.  Enough is enough.
  81. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that while the Dems claim to SUPPORT Israel, they put forth a true anti-Semite POS such as Colin Kahl for the No. 3 position at the Pentagon: the undersecretary for policy.  (Note- Mr. Kahl says he will take a bipartisan approach to his job.  Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy- what a guy).  Next, President Donald J. Trump says of Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, that in so many words, she is a ‘LOSER.’   Moving on, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, is trying to save his job by signing a tough abortion bill preventing abortion for genetic abnormalities.   Meanwhile, Congressmen Jeff Duncan, R-SC 3rd congressional district, and Doug Lamborn, R-CO 5th congressional district, are pushing back HARD on the Biden’s regime pushing of the bogus Critical Race Theory which is Critical Race Theory BS.  Good for you gentlemen!  Finally, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘don’t denigrate Arizona’s 2020 Election audit.’  Amen.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– In some shocking news today, the feds swooped down on ‘America’s Mayor’ and Donald J. Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and removed all of his electronic devices in an early morning raid.  Mr. Giuliani offered to meet with the authorities and to hand over his devices but no, much like they did during the raid on Roger Stone’s home, they wanted to INTIMIDATE the man, trying to tie to him the crimes committed by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine.  Likewise, they also raided the home of Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, two more big Trump supporters and legal eagles.   In other news, as California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to whine and cry over the recall effort against him, one of the recall advisers says that ‘one-third of the signatories are Democrats, one-third are independents, and one-third are Republicans.’  Everyone wants Gavin Newsom OUT of office ASAP.[xxii]   Finally, Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is working with Stephen Miller to defeat Joe Biden’s RACIST policies on equity rather than equality when it comes to providing aid to farmers.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– An alternate juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial says that ‘mob riots, protests, and the racial climate did NOT influence the jury’s decision.’  Sure.  Uh huh, of course not.  Next, following a cop shooting of a black suspect, a North Carolina judge denies a request for the video cam footage.   Next, a video shows that a California man died while the cops were holding him.  Here we go again.   Regarding firearms, a new poll shows that support for heavier gun laws is lacking support among the American people.
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: Notable Departure– NASA Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins is dead at the age of 90.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3555 with a $41 million pot on the line tonight: 14, 18, 19, 33, 37, and Mega 19.  Out of 116,245 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $41,234.  The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in Coarsegold, CA 93614.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #841 with a $116 million pot on the line: 16, 18, 35, 39, 53, and Powerball 21.   Out of 55,428 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $859,829.  The winning ticket was sold at Stater Brothers 188 in Grand Terrace, CA 92313.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: The Wrap-Up– Amazing to see Joe Biden’s ‘address’ in which, he praised the police, noting most of them are okay.  Here is how socialism works- you grind law enforcement and the military in the dirt, kick them in the teeth, beat them up, purge them, and then when they can take no more, you make a deal: IF you don’t want things to return to the way they were- you being public enemies and all- you will now serve as storm-troopers and go after our enemies.  YOU can do whatever you want to them and without any oversight or parameters.  This is evil- glad I am now in Israel- Mo.  We love and cherish our freedoms… Meanwhile, the three people involved in the death of Ahmaud Arbery have been indicted on hate crimes charges.   A federal grand jury indicted Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan today which is good.  These three crackers have much for which to answer.
  87. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 512,067,467 confirmed cases, +785,425, 6,255,853 confirmed deaths, +2,360 and 465,824,561 confirmed recoveries, +566,075. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 82,950,138 confirmed cases, UP 61,891 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,020,124 confirmed deaths, UP 350,[xxiii] and 80,618,357 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,438.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xxiv]
  88. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,831 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,076 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 463 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  89. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,216,406 confirmed cases, 90,343 confirmed deaths, and 8,963,856 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,964,981 confirmed cases, 73,928 confirmed deaths, and 5,816,157 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 248,405 confirmed cases, 1,418 confirmed deaths, and 239,022 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,493,194 confirmed cases, 12,686 confirmed deaths, and 1,445,808 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Navajo Nation: they have 53,381 confirmed cases, 1,758 confirmed deaths, and 51,519 confirmed recoveries.[xxv]   
  90. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,071,491 confirmed cases, 10,695 confirmed deaths, and 4,033,472 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Nauru, 226th place on the list: 4 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 3 confirmed recoveries.[xxvi]                         
  91. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,916.39, UP 614.46 points (+1.85%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,871.53 UP 382.60 points (+3.06%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,287.50, UP 103.54 points (+2.47%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $105.11 per barrel, +3.09 (+3.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.80 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $23.17 per troy ounce, -0.30 (-1.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $909.90 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.05%) while the price of COPPER is $4.44 per pound, -0.04 (-0.86%).[xxvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,249.53 per troy oz., +46.71 (+2.12%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,095,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,039.00 per USD/T, -54.50 (-1.76%). The price of ZINC is $4,136.00 per USD/T., -83.50 (-1.98%).   The price of COCOA is $2,575.00 per USD/T, +7.00 (+0.27%).  The price of COFFEE is $218.40 per USD/T, +2.45 (+1.13%).  The price of CORN is $817.00 per USD/T, +1.50 (+0.18%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,043.80 USD 1,000 board feet -8.60 (-0.82%).[xxviii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.62 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.95 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.45, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 70.25 of theirs.    In Rwandan Franc, one greenback equals 1,010.05 and in St. Helena Pound, a buck equals 0.80 and in El Salvadoran Colón, one dollar equals 8.75 of theirs.[xxix]       
  92. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.176 in Florida, $5.256 in Hawaii, and $4.691 in Washington state.[xxx]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Montana- $4.097.  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 30th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Chad: $3.206 per U.S. Gallon.[xxxi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,414,818,869,159 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxxii]  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 Luxembourg the SIXTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil.  This nation holds $258,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  93. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Sensing that Joe Biden is on the verge of mental collapse, Russia once again warned the United States of potential retaliation over America’s asinine sanctions.   Meanwhile, Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, says he ‘witnessed ample signs of Russian war crimes in Ukraine’ during a recent visit to that war-torn country.  Next, reports continue to arise of the Russian navy employing dolphins to guard their Black Sea base at Sebastopol.  This has been tried before but has never proven successful.  Still, with the Russkies, one never knows.
  94. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The Russians have raised rocket and missile attacks on Ukraine once again.  Several blasts rocked Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, today.   The British minister of defense- Ben Wallace- says that ‘Russia could become a cancerous growth in Ukraine.’  Meanwhile, Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax this evening that if Russia were to use tactical nukes in Ukraine, ‘all bets would be off, and the U.S. must put troops on the ground in direct conflict with the Russkies.’  This is becoming more ludicrous by the day.  We cannot fight a land war with Russia in eastern Europe, it’s impossible to do and will lead to the Chi-Coms becoming the world’s master.  Not good.
  95. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been the nation’s ‘border czar’ for the past 391 days and even worse, she has not arrived to do her job in 305 days.  Our estimates of the rising costs associated with rising numbers of illegal aliens continues breaking records every day.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 118 days is $752,442,887.  Next, the cost of caring for the detritus of the world since the Biden-Harris regime grabbed power on January 20, 2021, is $42,498,248,630.  The number of illegal aliens encountered at the border since January 01, 2022, is approximately 1,203,637.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 46,635,294.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 95-to-130 million which is unsustainable for any country and must be fixed now.  Deport ALL of them.  Now.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  96. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says the southern border is ‘broken because of Joe Biden’s attitude.’  George P. Bush, R-TX, says that the southern border is ‘out of control.’  Next, while testifying before the Congress, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the only solution for solving the border crisis is to give every illegal alien who has swarmed across it amnesty.  Folks, not only this insane, it’s also the kill stroke for the United States.  It’s over, it’s done, it’s finished.  In other border-related news, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is seeking donations with which to bus illegal aliens into Washington, D.C.  While we think this is great, how about finding a way to push them back across the border into Mexico?   Simultaneously, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, is suing the Biden regime over its upcoming plan to lessen border security next month with the overturning of Title 42.  DHS Secretary Mayorkas says he believes there will be 18,000 or more encounters of illegal aliens per day once the pro-American Title 42 ends.  We must fight back against this evil.
  97. 2022 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $50.55 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.22 (3) Novavax: $44.27 (4) Merck & Company: $88.61 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.59  (6) BioNTech: $143.40 (7) Moderna: $142.52.
  98. 2022 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $98.09 (2) Boeing: $154.19 (3) General Dynamics: $242.20 (4) Lockheed Martin: $441.69 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $445.17.
  99. 2022 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.22 (2) DuPont: $67.58 (3) 3M: $147.21 (4) Honeywell: $189.92  (5) Teijen: $1,388.00.
  100. 2022 Thursday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.06 (2) Beyond Meat: $39.82  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $69.55.
  101. 2022 Thursday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $156.21 (2) Lowe’s: $205.13 (3) Home Depot: $312.04 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $562.00 (5) Amazon: $2,891.93.
  102. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden endorsed a new bill that will funnel assets seized from Russian oligarchs to Ukraine.  Joe also asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in aid for Ukraine which means the Biden regime will most likely skim off 12-20-percent for the Biden Family’s coffers.
  103. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll pulls NO punches and says that a large majority of Americans blame Joe Biden for skyrocketing gas prices.   In other disastrous news for the Biden regime, the Chi-Coms and Iran are going to increase their mutual defense pact.  This is a direct slap in the face of slobbering Joe Biden.  In yet another problem for the feeble U.S. ‘president’- one who could not speak today at a ‘press conference’ of sorts without going totally BLANK in his thoughts, words, and speech- parental rights groups are pushing back with growing force over Joe’s suggestion that children do not belong to their parents but to the regime.  George Orwell could not have foretold the topics of his classic novel, “1984,” than what we are seeing today.
  104. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– President Ron Klain, uh, excuse me, President Joe Biden, continues dangling the bait that the Biden regime could cancel all CURRENT student debt but not over $50,000.  Alas, it must be an election year for this carrot of the carrot of ‘reparations for slavery’ to be dangling in front of the young, dumb, and full of c*m voters.  Should Joe Biden cancel student loan debt, he will alienate all those who have struggled to pay their loans off who by far outnumber those who have not.
  105. 2022 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The House select committee investigating (yeah, right) the FALSE FLAG EVENTS of January 06, 2021, announce their plan to hold at least eight public hearings, beginning in June, in the hope of somehow influencing the voters to vote ‘D’ on their ballots in November.  We suspect their ratings will be at the bottom of the crapper.  We also suspect the American people will become even more infuriated with the regime and its allies than they are now and if- we repeat- IF- the elections are honest, the Dems are going to go the way of the dinosaur.
  106. 2022 Thursday S: Big Tech News– CNN + threw in the towel today, two full days ahead of the scheduled shutdown on April 30, 2022.

117. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2022

1975 Sunday: North Vietnamese infantry and armor encircled Saigon on this date. Although panic grips much of the populace of South Vietnam’s capital city, South Vietnamese troops are determined to hold out for as long as they can. Had not the Democrats in the U.S. Congress prevented President Gerald R. Ford from rushing in military supplies so the ARVN troops could fight on equal terms, this humiliating defeat would never have occurred. However, the Democrats being the pro-communist scum they are left the South to its fate. Evil.

  61. 2016 Wednesday: Unlike other European countries, Austria says “F— this” by limiting asylum claimants into their country and also reserves the right to reject people at their border.  Of course, human rights groups go haywire claiming this is an afront to all humanity.  Austria, we’re with you, Germany and Angela Merkel are NOT your friends.

  64. 2019 Saturday: Our ‘beloved’ Pope Francis, the 266th Roman Catholic pontiff, donates half-a-million bucks to ‘help’ migrants trying to reach the U.S. border via caravan who are stranded in Mexico City.  Let them remain there.  Meanwhile, a shooter opens fire at a synagogue in Poway, California, managing to slay one and wound three before being taken down himself.   God bless the victims.
  65. 2020 Monday: Thanks to the reopening of some states, the Stock Market has a momentous day.  The DOW Jones Industrial Average closes up 358.51 at 24,133.78; the S&P 500 closes up 41.74 at 2,878.48; and the NASDAQ closes up 95.64 at 8,730.16.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the one the Chinese claim is ‘not theirs but came out of the United States’ continues causing problems.  Global statistics show that currently, we have 3,002,303 confirmed cases what with 208,131 confirmed deaths and 878,813 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,005,934 confirmed cases what with 56,329 confirmed deaths but 112,913 confirmed recoveries so things are looking good- most places.  California’s confirmed cases rest at 44,792 and at 1,755 confirmed deaths.  The Chinese continue lying about their numbers.  Elsewhere, people continue to speculate about North Korean thug dictator, Kim Jong Un, who has been absent from world view for the past two weeks.  Many speculate he contracted COVID-19 and is near or at death whereas others claim he is on a ‘holiday.’  We shall see.  Finally, apparent Democratic Party 2020 presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden remains mum on allegations he sexually abused a staffer back in the 1990s when he was a senator.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!
  66. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 148,190,387 confirmed cases, +864,953, 3,126,361  confirmed deaths, +14,155, and 85,879,081 confirmed recoveries, +850,124.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,375,602 confirmed cases, UP 55,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 579,162 confirmed deaths, UP 806,[v] and 119,318,872 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,064.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 264,711 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  71. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.996 per gallon, $2.791 in Florida, $3.767 in Hawaii, and $3.421 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.569.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The first country on the list is the second lowest gasoline price in the world- Iran: $0.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Good for those Shiite lunatics  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,221,266,256,036 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, upbraids the Biden regime’s plan of dumping tens of millions of dollars on the Northern Triangle countries of Central America in the hope that dumping U.S. dollars on corrupt and sometimes criminal regimes will stop the ongoing flow of illegal aliens to the United States.   Speaking of the Biden regime, a new directive prohibits ICE from arresting criminal illegal aliens at courthouses across the country.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is going to launch a major investigation into extremists…within its own ranks.  Sounding more and more like a communist regime in the making when governmental departments begin looking for enemies within their own ranks.  Next, Joe Biden wants to give the Internal Revenue Service $80 billion so they can step up tax collections and enforcement activities against shirkers unwilling to do their duty and pay higher taxes.  Of course, Democrats in arrears with the IRS will be entirely fine.[xvi]  Moving on, Joe Biden is going to Georgia tomorrow to celebrate his 99th day in office and to blast the GOP.  Oh, he also wants to propose FREE PRESCHOOL, yet another way of getting hold of America’s kids and indoctrinating them into believing there are a billion genders.  Finally, the Washington Post is going to end its ‘fact-checking’ of the lying Joe Biden.  (Note- Fake News strikes again).
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– With feeble old Joe Biden in the White House willing to drop to his knees in front of the Iranian mullahs if the murderous thugs will A-L-L-O-W the U.S. back into the flawed nuclear deal, what do the Iranians do?  They cause problems for the U.S. Navy in the Persian Gulf, threatening our warships who then had to drive the IRG swift boats away.  (Note- we think the U.S. should sink Iran’s entire navy).  Meanwhile, as news continues to break about John F. Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations, there are growing calls for a thorough investigation into the scumbag’s criminal activities.  Speaking of Kerry, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘John F. Kerry’s love of the Iran nuclear deal may have clouded his judgment.’  (Note- nope, Marco- Kerry is a traitor and should be treated as such).  His fellow senator, Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘IF the Iran allegations are true, John Kerry must leave government employ.’  Amen.  Bloomberg journalist Eli Lake says that the ‘Iran talks can do without Russian diplomatic mischief’ (so says a leftist).
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Political News I– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is limiting attendance for Joe Biden’s first ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress.  What?  Is he going to be like, a, uh, hologram?  Whatever happens, it’s going to be hysterical.   In California, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is sniveling and whining about the recall effort going forward against him.  He is blaming the GOP when it’s EVERYONE wanting to get his worthless butt out of office.  Still, many believe the Democrats are going to pull a fast one and somehow preserve the Smiler’s career by having him (we said this last year when or if “Kooky Kamala” Harris actually became the VP) appoint himself U.S. senator by having Senator Dianne Feinstein step down and him take her place.   The other possibility is that he will step down so the lieutenant governor can step in, so the state remains in Democratic Party hands.  We shall see.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News II–  President Donald J. Trump has endorsed Susan Wright for the Texas 6th congressional district.  Her husband, Rep. Ron Wright, died from COVID-19 and the 45th president hopes to have his widow take his place.   Next, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is going to address a “Back the Blue” rally that is upcoming.  Speaking of the Peach State, 21 black political leaders are excoriating the Democrats for damaging their state by lying about the new voter law. 
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci makes yet another ‘promise’ to the American people- that the U.S. should see a ‘turning point in several weeks’ if we all do the right thing like wear masks and get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We won’t put any money on that.   Next, although the liberals won’t give President Donald J. Trump any credit for the vaccine, they are now demanding he do a public service announcement to get his ‘Neanderthal followers’ to go out and get vaccinations- like good citizens.  What a load of crap.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed Democratic strategist James Carville says that ‘wokeness is a problem for Democrats’ and that ‘we all know it.’   Next, news comes out that many state-run colleges now require new hires to commit to the promotion of far-left agendas.  Wow.  We knew this.  In other WOKE insanity, the CEO of VisuWell- Sam Johnson- found himself terminated from his job for asking why a foul-mouthed punk at a prom reception was wearing a dress and being a foul-mouthed little shit.  What?  People cannot say anything anymore.  This is what happens when two generations of young people don’t get the belt across their asses.  Spare the rod and spoil flipping generations.  If kids had been disciplined there would be NO WOKE movement.   Finally, Elon Musk is getting lambasted by the WOKIES about him hosting Saturday Night Live sometime next month.  WTF?  We thought Musk was a ‘cool guy.’[xvii]
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: Miscellaneous News I– Former Dallas PD Officer Amber Guyger who shot her black neighbor dead claiming she entered the wrong apartment and thought the man was an ‘intruder’ is appealing her sentence.   Next, Governor Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed three anti-abortion bills limiting when abortions can occur.  Of course, the liberals are out running amok, demanding he be removed from office.  Wah, wah, wah.  Next, Senator Cynthia Lummis, R-WY, introduced a bill today that would permit people under age 21 to buy handguns.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says the ‘Democrats are insane to fight the Arizona 2020 Election audit.’  They are doing everything they can to stop it so that tells you all you need to know.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News II– At the House GOP retreat, apparently tensions between hardcore RINO Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, are rising.  We are not sure as to why the two are having problems but of the two, Cheney is the least popular and needs to shut her mouth.  Moving on, Little Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. Transportation secretary, says that ‘from the start, Joe Biden has longed for a BIPARTISAN infrastructure bill.’  Yeah, sure.  Bulls**t.   Meanwhile, liberals are fearful that the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan is going to leave women in a dark place.  We guess we could stay there another 50 years and the plight of women in that s—hole country would…still be the same.
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Miscellaneous News III– Britney Spears is set to speak at an upcoming court hearing regarding the highly unfair conservatorship in which, her father has placed her.   Next, states are fearful of SCOTUS taking the new concealed carry of firearms case in that it might lessen their power.  You can’t trust Chief Justice John Roberts. 
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw: Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1654 with a $319 million on the line: 15, 22, 30, 41, 42, and Mega 25.  Out of 120,216 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $10,640 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,481 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic.

  89. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The world-famous ‘border czar,’ Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the disaster befalling the country for the past 390 days.  Worse than that, it’s been 304 days since last she showed up to do a photo op.  The cost of caring for these uninvited illegal aliens for the past 117 days is a shocking $745,967,001.  Atop that, since the two derelicts became the ‘guardians of the Constitution and the American people,’ the nation has shelled out $42,491,772,744 to care for the leeches.  Since the first day of the year, we have seen 1,192,049 illegal aliens pour across the border and into the interior of the country.  NOT good.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens living in the country is 46,623,706.  We believe the number is treble that, possibly quadruple that.  NO nation can withstand this invasion, perhaps not even until November.  Our nation could soon be lost.  Time for Operation Wetback II.  Let’s round ‘em up and deport them ASAP out of the country and back to whence they came. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  90. 2022 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– A new poll says that nearly half of all Israelis fear a second Holocaust is brewing.  Next, Russia releases American hostage, Trevor Reed, home to his family in an exchange for a Russian drug trafficker locked up in the United States.  The parents of Mr. Reed said it appeared their son’s treatment at the hands of the Russians was horrible.  F**king Russians.  Time to nuke them.   Speaking of the Russians and their horrible treatment of those whom they don’t like, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is demanding global control over Russia’s nuclear weapons stockpile.  Ukraine fears that the Russians might nuke them the more the Ukrainians continue mopping the floor with Russian blood.

  97. 2022 Wednesday N: Political News I– A new bill has come forth seeking to reinstate ALL U.S. military personnel terminated for refusing to undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu virus.  Excellent.  Bring them back.  In other news, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testifies on Capitol Hill where we learn that the Biden regime spent $72 million to extricate itself from federal contracts with which to complete construction on the border wall.  Wow.  Secretary Mayorkas says the Trump administration ruined the immigration system but has NO fixes to stop the seething tidal wave of humanity pouring across it.  Instead, he says that domestic extremism- WHITE POWER EXTREMISM- is the most potent threat facing Americans today.  While DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was testifying before Congress, he raised concerns over what he said is the establishment of a ‘disinformation board’ with which to combat ‘misinformation.’  The board will be headed by ultra-leftist Nina Jankowicz, a fellow at the Wilson Center.
  98. 2022 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3659 what with a $37 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 03, 11, 13, 23, 34, and Mega 23.  Out of 121,094 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $21,088 apiece.  One ticket was sold at the Arco AM/PM in Perris, CA 92571 while the other was sold at 7-Eleven in Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #981 with a jackpot of $454 million up for grabs: Out of 180,291 winning tickets, SIX people had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,226 apiece.

  51. 2020 Wednesday: Twitter  boss Jack Dorsey, who resembles the dwarf character on Game of Thrones, takes a pummeling from the U.S. Senate today during a virtual hearing in which he was pounded over being a so-called platform when in fact being a publisher who censors any news injurious to Democrats such as the Hunter Biden laptop story.  Meanwhile, little Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s pimp, says he ‘had no idea that Facebook election integrity official worked for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.’  Aw, gee whiz, Zuck!  What a moron!   Ah, well, it’s time to strip these BIG TECH folks- including that POS Sundar Pichai of Google of any protections they have long enjoyed. 
  52. 2020 Wednesday A:  Elsewhere, FBI boss Christopher Wray finally does some work and announces indictments against eight Chi-Com operatives in the U.S. seeking to punish and coerce Chinese and Hong Kong freedom fighters inside the United States.  How about digging into Hunter Biden’s laptop there, Director Wray?   Finally, early voting numbers across the country demonstrate that the GOP is angry, on the rise, and is outvoting the Democratic Party scum on the other side.  This election appears as though it’s going to be a RED TIDAL WAVE as President Donald J. Trump has long predicted. 
  53. 2020 Wednesday B: Ex-DHS official Miles Taylor comes out as “Anonymous,” the one who was working against President Donald J. Trump from within the administration, trying to take him down from the inside.  No one knows who this POS is or why he was disgruntled but everyone gets theirs.  It is just a matter of time… Meanwhile, following Tony Bobulinski going public on the rampant corruption within the Biden Family and the Harris-Biden 2020 Campaign- Build Back Better (Bullshit)- the campaign makes it known to ALL media companies that anyone who shares the Hunter Biden laptop story or what the brave Bobulinski said on Tucker Carlson’s show last night will be SHUNNED from the Biden White House.  SHUNNED.

  64. 2021 Thursday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- As much as it breaks our collective hearts to report this day in and day out, today is Day No. 217 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border disaster and Day No. 124 since ‘California’s Shame’ has visited the border.  Holy Moly, folks, where can God-fearing folks such as us obtain jobs like hers?  What a life it would be.  Who do we ask?  The Chi-Coms?  Seems like they’re the ones controlling the White House.  Governor Greg Abbott, GOP, said today that ‘we are securing our borders because the Biden regime won’t.’
  65. 2021 Thursday G: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS I- Seoul, South Korea, reported today that North Korea’s GREAT LEADER Kim Jong Un has lost 44 pounds but still is healthy.  (Note- he must have gotten his stomach stapled).  Elsewhere, defenders of freedom and journalistic rights are demanding famed journalist Julian Assange be freed from prison.
  66. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- American Airlines CEO Doug Parker says (anti-mask-related) violence on the company’s airlines simply has to stop.  People are pissed, Mr. Parker.  Next, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sent a letter to senile Joe Biden blasting him over his unconstitutional vaccine mandates.  (Note- it is interesting to note how congressional staffers and their families are EXEMPT from having to undergo the jabs.  What the f**k is up with that?)  Elsewhere, angry parents and voters are driving recalls around the country as they pushback against unconstitutional vaccine and mask mandates.  Finally, as the vaccine mandate approaches in the Big Apple, massive numbers of firefighters, law enforcement, and EMS personnel are in the streets protesting.  It’s clear that half of all fire stations and police stations in New York City could be closed and half as many EMS workers will be available.  This is going to bring in a tsunami of violence, death, and other crimes and all of it will rest atop the shoulders of NYC Mayor Bill ‘Bag O’ Fries’ Di Blasio.

  72. 2021 Thursday N: JOE BIDEN’S DAILY DISASTER- Word came out late today that dazed and confused Joe Biden is considering giving adult family members of illegal aliens separated under the Trump administration payments of $450,000 apiece.  This is frigging crazy and everything this moron does is destroying him and his loony tunes party.  Black folks know just where they stand, so says Chef Bea O’Malley.  According to her, all this talk of ‘reparations for slavery’ is just that- talk.  Illegal aliens will be given money while blacks continue to chafe under despotic Democratic Party leadership.  Time to vote for Republicans!
  73. 2021 Thursday O: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS I- After the president of Taiwan confirms U.S. troops are on the island training its troops to resist the Chi-Coms, the Biden regime confirms that it will defend the island nation of millions of freedom-loving people.   Next, as the Biden-Harris regime continue going WOKE, neither of them had a clue as to what the Chi-Coms were doing with their development of their hypersonic missiles.  Speaking of the military, the ever-wavering Pentagon now says that at least 450 Americans were abandoned in Afghanistan.  Guess they are trying to extricate themselves from the disaster that is Joe Biden.
  74. 2021 Thursday P: JOE BIDEN REGIME NEWS II- Slow-witted Joe Biden unveiled the framework for his Build Back Better Bullshit plan, one that far more economists say will worsen inflation while the senile old bastard says, ‘it will cost the American taxpayers ZERO dollars.’
  75. 2021 Thursday Q: POLITICAL NEWS I- A nothing Congresswoman from Illinois, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, 9th congressional district, said that IF the infrastructure and reconciliation bills go down, Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, R-AZ, should be deprived of their posts.  Congresswoman Schakowsky, why don’t you STFU?  Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, said that U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland’s behavior before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday was ‘inappropriate.’
  76. 2021 Thursday R: POLITICAL NEWS II-  Newsmax reports that far-left nut, Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, DS-WA 7th congressional district, is now in charge of Joe Biden’s flailing agenda.  Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, slammed Joe Biden’s spending as ‘deranged, left-wing agenda’ crap.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, quipped that ‘Joe Biden’s spending plans make for the most expensive Thanksgiving ever for Americans.’  Add to that the fact that Congressman Andrew Clyde, R-GA 9th congressional district, said that the Dems’ spending disarray raises questions as to whom is in power?
  77. 2021 Thursday S: POLITICAL NEWS III-  As the Democratic Party continues to circle the crapper’s drain like the turds they are, moderate and progressive Democrats cannot get onboard with one another as they fight to shove through their insane infrastructure and reconciliation bills.  An all-caucus meeting is to be held later today so the progressives can cudgel everyone else into submission.  Yikes.  House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, said of the Dems’ bills that ‘infrastructure and reconciliation are no longer separate bills.’  Elsewhere, in the Windy City, a large group of assembled plumbers boo Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot off the stage, much to the delight of all attendees.  How embarrassing!
  78. 2021 Thursday T: POLITICAL NEWS IV- Congressman Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, is calling for the impeachment of U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro “The Blank” Mayorkas for abrogating his duty to secure the United States’ borders and for failing to enforce immigration laws.
  79. 2021 Thursday U: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- In the first half of 2021, traffic deaths in the United States jumped dramatically hitting 18.4-percent which means we’ve lost 20,160 Americans in six months.  Uh, sounds like there are far too many drunken illegal aliens driving around the country.  Round them up, send them to work camps on the north slope of Alaska, and keep them there for five years.  Then deport them.  Elsewhere, a study says that a ‘record 66-percent of college and university students voted in the 2020 Elections.
  80. 2021 Thursday V: BUSINESS NEWS- Apple’s strong quarter suffers a $6 billion blow due to supply chain shortages.  Next, after a second In-N-Out Burger is forced to close due to vaccine mandates in the East Bay, thousands of pro-In-N-Out Burger protesters take to the streets.  NO MORE vaccine mandates, government apparatchiks, find other ways to line your pockets.
  81. 2021 Thursday W: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS-LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS I- Poor former New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, has been charged with a misdemeanor sexual assault charge, i.e., a groping charge.  You know your days are done when you own party wants to send you to prison.  Wow.   Elsewhere, following the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent announcement that executions can proceed in Oklahoma, the first inmate to undergo execution via lethal injection- John Grant- did so early this morning.  Meanwhile, as the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse approaches, legal defense experts see a strong case for self-defense.  The poor kid was being attacked by two Antifa goons whom he then shot.  Dead.  Good for him.  Elsewhere, California law enforcement authorities confirm human remains found in desert belong to missing New Jersey woman, Lauren Cho.   Elsewhere, we learned today that Huawei paid Democratic Party lobbyist Tony Podesta $1 million to shill for them.
  82. 2021 Thursday X: SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS – The new name of Facebook is “Meta.”  Wow.  Imaginative.  Uh, just change it to BIG BROTHER and you are good.
  83. 2021 Thursday Y: FLORIDA STATE NEWS- Lt. Governor Jeanette Nunez, GOP, said that the ‘supply chain mess is the perfect example of Joe Biden’s incompetence.’  Hence why the Sunshine State is inviting all marooned container ships to reroute to Jacksonville, Florida, so the good people of Florida can offload the ships and then truck goods all across America.   (Note- the ships have no choice- if they overstay their berth time in the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, California, they face humongous fines so it will cost less to transit the Panama Canal, head across the Gulf of Mexico, and dock in western Florida.  We hope ALL container vessels do this.  It could save the United States).
  84. 2021 Thursday Z: VIRGINIA STATE NEWS- Things continue going from bad to worse for the Democrats as new polling says that Republican businessman and gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin is smoking Democratic Party hack and scumbag Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe by 53-to-45-percent.  Wow.  It appears that “Maggot” McAuliffe is going DOWN to an embarrassing defeat.  (Note- look for the Dems to try to steal the election next Tuesday).  Meanwhile, as WOKE schools in Virginia continue crushing the spirits of the kids they are hired to educate, angry Old Dominion parents are moving their kids to private schools.
  85. 2021 Thursday AA: SPORTS NEWS I- In tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup between the Green Bay Packers (7-1-0) and the undefeated Arizona Cardinals (7-1-0), the Packers pulled a win out of their hats, 24-21, in a strange game in which some calls aided one team over the other but evened out in the end.
  86. 2021 Thursday BB: WOKEISM-WOKE-WOKIES- Much to the shock of WOKIES everywhere, a WHITE CEO won a $10 million reverse discrimination lawsuit for having lost his job to two subpar women, one black the other a dyke.  Awesome.  David Duvall- wrongly terminated by Novant Health- made out like a bandit.  Booyah, all the way to the bank, baby.
  87. 2021 Thursday CC: Folks, please stick around so you can discover whatever the Democratic Party dupes are doing on behalf of their Chi-Com overlords.  Hunter Biden, what are you up to today?  Are you working with Comrade Xi to subvert the cherished freedoms of the liberty-loving Taiwanese people?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Fairport Convention released a live album recorded back in 1970- “Live at the L.A. Troubadour” (January 23, 1977).  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.

ENDNOTES:

[i] 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.

[ii] One simply must wonder why countries such as France and other First World nations do not push self-control and self-responsibility such as using birth control instead of abortion as the number one form of ‘birth control?’  Have we as civilized people become so callous as to the murder of the unborn that we can continue condoning the savagery employed against the unborn, many of whom are minorities?  This must stop and people must return to responsible behavior and do everything possible to stop unwanted pregnancies instead of terminating unwanted pregnancies either in the womb or once on the delivery table. 

[iii] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

RR. 2008 Tuesday: The federal government indicted Alaska Senator Ted Stevens on seven felony counts of concealing more than a quarter million dollars in house renovations and gifts from a powerful oil contractor. However, after being railroaded out of office, a jury later found the long-time Republican guilty of lying on financial disclosure forms, but a judge subsequently dismissed the case saying prosecutors had withheld evidence.

  41. 2004 Thursday: Incredibly stupid Senator John F. Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.
  42. 2005 Friday: Astronomers announced the discovery of a planetary body larger than Pluto in orbit around the sun; the dwarf planet initially nicknamed Xena received the official designation Eris.

  44. 2008 Tuesday: The federal government indicted Alaska Senator Ted Stevens on seven felony counts of concealing more than a quarter million dollars in house renovations and gifts from a powerful oil contractor.  However, after being railroaded out of office, a jury later found the long-time Republican guilty of lying on financial disclosure forms, but a judge subsequently dismissed the case saying prosecutors had withheld evidence. 
  45. 2011 Friday: The U.S. House of Representatives votes to once again, increase the debt ceiling; however, the U.S. Senate rejects it outright.
  46. 2013 Monday: Signs of deteriorating economic security are suggested by an Associated Press survey stating that four out of five adults living in the United States struggle with joblessness, near-poverty, or reliance on welfare for at least parts of their lives.  Meanwhile, in Cannes, France, the largest jewelry heist in recent memory takes place at the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel’s diamond show with thieves making off with 103 million Euros worth of precious gems and metals.  Elsewhere, 44 people at least die and hundreds more are injured as ISIS carries out a wave of car bombings across the country.  In Dera Ismal Khan, Pakistan, the Taliban conducts a prison break freeing at least 300 dedicated jihadis who flee to the hills.  KILL THEM!
  47. 2014 Tuesday: In Sierra Leone during the Ebola virus crisis, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan succumbs to the disease himself, the principal physician battling against it.  Meanwhile, in Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, the authorities claim that 100 of their citizens were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  IF Palestinians were killed, it’s because they were acting the fool- like usual.  In the wake of this, France announces it will send 8-million euros in aid to the Gaza.  Good for them, virtue-signaling is always good.
  48. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.
  49. 2016 Friday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party.  Needless to say, her fellow Democrats fall into a celebratory swoon and sex workers around the city see the numbers of their patrons spike.  Virginia Senator Tim Kaine becomes her running mate.  What a pair of losers.
  50. 2017 Saturday: U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint live-fire exercises in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile; experts said the North Korean launch showed that a large portion of the United States was now within the range of Kim Jong Un’s arsenal of missiles.

  52. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number.  Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  53. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Go get them, Republicans, go get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Congresswoman Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).
  54. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 16,845,602 confirmed cases, UP by 240,535 cases, 662,577 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,240 deaths, and 9,836,182 confirmed recoveries, UP by 191,795 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,491,773 confirmed cases, UP by 65,492 new cases, 152,624 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,250 new deaths, and 2,204,332 confirmed recoveries, UP by 53,113 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).   
  55. 2020 Wednesday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 475,503 confirmed cases, 8,715 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,865 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,215 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 54,205 confirmed cases, 1,548 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, New Jersey: 180,776 confirmed number of cases, 15,798 confirmed number of deaths, and like other Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Phil Murphy?  Acting like your typical Blue State governor and concealing the truth?  Nothing to say?  Let gym owners out of jail.     
  56. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,539.57, UP 160.29 points (0.61%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,542.94, UP 140.85 points (1.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,258.44, UP 40.00 points (1.24%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.60 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.42%) while the price of SILVER is $24.36 per troy ounce, +0.034 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $957.90 per troy oz, -0.60 (-0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $2.93 per pound, +0.0105 (+0.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.29 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.05%).
  57. 2021 Thursday: Here we are, the midpoint of the week for those of us who work seven straight days so let us see what the heck is happening today…let’s hope President Biden has not gotten us into a shooting war…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

We will admit, this is one album we have not heard which is strange as we have heard them all.  It’s also a difficult one to find.  What’s more, they may not be the same Wild Turkey as the one led by former Jethro Tull bassist Glenn Cornick so we will leave it to those who wish to seek it out, give it a listen, and then perhaps enlighten us as to whom exactly the group is and how they sound.  In 12 years, we will admit that we have NEVER been stymied in finding out about a band or its recorded music.  We are stumped!

ENDNOTES:

[iv] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

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

[vi] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that celebrated day.

[vii] 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.

GG. 1954 Wednesday: French Union troops are in good spirits that Operation Condor- the effort to open a tunnel through which the remaining defenders at Dien Bien Phu can make a breakout should all go bad in and around the base- is making good progress. French Foreign Legionnaires and Laotian troops are fighting through one communist position after another but still, it will require another two weeks at least to be able to link up with the garrison.

Bush administration.  (Note- we think this is a prime example of the Deep State influencing a president into a war and then when it goes wrong, they abandon them to their fate). 
  53. 2004 Thursday: In Fallujah, Iraq, violent jihadists begin assaulting U.S. forces.  This leads to amplified intensity on both sides as the American troops call in fire missions and air support such as C-130 gunships which come in station on scene and begin riddling the jihadis with gatling guns and rockets.  A recent poll released by CNN says that a majority of Iraqis see the Americans as OCCUPIERS while a small minority sees them as liberators.  What a flipping mess.

  56. 2007 Sunday: The so-called ‘religion of peace’ is busy today.  In Iraq, a mosque in Karbala suffers a suicide bombing that blows 55 worshippers up and on their way to meet with Allah far sooner than any of them may have planned.  Meanwhile, farther east in Pakistan, a suicide bombing there blows another 22 people to meet with Allah while also wounding several government officials and loads of other people going about their daily lives. 
  57. 2008 Tuesday: The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services announces that of the 53 girls they rescued from the breakaway Mormon church at the YFZ Ranch, at least 31 of the girls between ages 14 and 17 are pregnant.   Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds an Indiana law requiring voter ID during elections.
  58. 2009 Wednesday: RINO Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania decides to leap aboard the Obama train hoping to ride to future success on the coattails of the Bamster.  He switches from being a ‘Republican’ to being a Democrat.  Woo-ooo, good for you, loser.  A year later, the self-serving maggot would lose his seat to Pat Toomey.  No one likes rats, Senator Specter, no one.
  59. 2010 Thursday: A Palestinian mob approaches the Gaza-Israeli border and the are heaving chunks of concrete, rocks, and setting things on fire.  The Israeli Defense Forces eventually are forced to defend themselves and a young Palestinian man lies dead while the rest of them scramble off like the rats they are.  Gaza, do something to help your people instead of maintaining them in generational poverty and misery.  It’s not Israel’s fault.
  60. 2011 Friday: Thanks to the Obama Administration’s horrible handling of the U.S. economy and for pushing Obamacare, Panasonic Corporation reportedly plans to announce it will cut 40,000 jobs.  Meanwhile, troublemaker former one-term U.S. President Jimmy Carter shares his views on North Korea with the world.  He just returned from visiting the godforsaken country and says that the ‘U.S. and South Korea must stop starving the North Korean people, that it’s a violation of human rights’ and a whole bunch of other crap.  Jimmy: STFU.
  61. 2012 Sunday: The government of Bashar al-Assad accuses UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon of ‘encouraging attacks on the government.’  Elsewhere, as Chi-Coms scour Beijing searching for blind dissident Chen Guangcheng who fled house arrest and into the streets, rumors are flying that he somehow made his way to the U.S. Embassy where he sought refuge.  Not good for U.S.-Chi-Com relations but it is what it is.
  62. 2013 Monday: During the new swearing in ceremony of Enrico Letta, an Italian man shoots and wounds two police officers outside Palazzo Chigi.  Elsewhere, original bassist with the Steve Miller Band[viii]—Lonnie Turner—died on this date in Lebanon, Oregon, at age 66.

  66. 2019 Sunday: Disney’s Marvel movie, “Avengers: Endgame,” becomes the first film to generate more than a billion dollars on its release- in this case, $1.2 billion.  Wow.  Meanwhile, in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” “The Long Night” episode surpasses “The Lord of the Rings” Battle of Helms Deep (44 minutes) for the longest battle scene in movie history with a gory battle almost 88 minutes in length.  It’s a great one to be sure.  Look for it.   Elsewhere, in West Chester Township, Ohio, police stumble upon four family members shot to death in an apartment.  They are searching for the killer.  
  67. 2020 Tuesday: News continues to break about “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s sexual assault of then-U.S. Senate staffer Tara Reade in 1993.  Meanwhile, Hillary Rodham Clinton- mum about those assault allegations- endorses former Vice President Biden for president on this day.  On the COVID-19 front, confirmed cases around the world now sit at 3,083,467 what with confirmed deaths at 213,824 but 915,988 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, confirmed cases rests at 1,033,721, confirmed deaths at 58,947, but number of confirmed recoveries sits at 117,690, which is great.  Various states are reopening in bits and pieces and the outlook of Americans is that things are going to get better and they are ready to return to work now.  Meanwhile, calls continue going out as to why famed ‘anti-fascist group,’ ANTIFA, is not in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, and other states with left-wing despotic governors doing battle with these would-be dictators. 
  68. 2021 Wednesday: Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Michael Schenker is always on a musical quest much like Carlos Santana and he always puts together good groups with which to get his musical talents across to his millions of fans.  “Resurrection” came out under the moniker “Michael Schenker Fest” on December 15, 2018.  The band featured an amalgam of his musical friends including vocalist Graham Bonnet, Gary Barden, Robin McAuley, and Doogie White plus his usual rhythm section adding the power punch that this mad axman requires to light stages ablaze and melt the minds of his beloved fans.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection; you will be glad you did.

  49. 2008 Sunday: News begins to break about a scumbag named Josef Fritzi in the town of Amstetten, Austria, had a special cellar in his house where he imprisoned his daughter Elisabeth from the age of 18 onward for the next 24 years.  He raped her and fathered seven children with her, three girls and four boys.  By the time the authorities discovered what this monstrous scumbag had done, he was age 74.  The trial was swift and he received a life sentence.   We’re sorry, the Austrian government should have shot this POS.  
  50. 2009 Monday: A 23-month-old Mexico City toddler died at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, becoming the first swine-flu death on U.S. soil.  Meanwhile, a strong earthquake hammered Mexico, rattling nerves among residents already tense from a swine flu outbreak.  Elsewhere, former WBA heavyweight champion Greg Page died at home in Louisville, Kentucky, of positional asphyxiation.  He was 50 years old.  Over the course of his pro-career, he amassed a record of 58 fights, 48 wins (17 Kos), and  1 draw.  Finally, one of President Barack Hussein Obama’s Air Force One jets, a Boeing 747, and an F-16 fighter jet panicked New Yorkers as they circled over lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty for what turned out to be a photo op.  Many people believe this to have been staged, the president committing a heinous practical joke above a city scarred from the 9-11 Attacks eight years before.  What a POS.

  55. 2014 Sunday: The high court in Egypt dishes out some stiff sentences to pro-Mohammed Morsi rioters- 11 of them this time- of anywhere from 5 to 88 years in the slammer for running amok and rioting in the streets. 
  56. 2015 Monday: The 82nd U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder left office on this date.  A Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from February 03, 2009 until today.  His successor, Loretta Lynch- the 83rd U.S. attorney general assumed office today and served until January 20, 2017.
  57. 2016 Wednesday: Unlike other European countries, Austria says “F— this” by limiting asylum claimants into their country and also reserves the right to reject people at their border.  Of course, human rights groups go haywire claiming this is an afront to all humanity.  Austria, we’re with you, Germany and Angela Merkel are NOT your friends.
  58. 2017 Thursday: Julius Younger, American virologist who helped create the Salk polio vaccine dies at age 96 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump softens his stance on NAFTA by saying he ‘seeks to renegotiate it.’

Trump.
  60. 2019 Saturday: Our ‘beloved’ Pope Francis, the 266th Roman Catholic pontiff, donates half-a-million bucks to ‘help’ migrants trying to reach the U.S. border via caravan who are stranded in Mexico City.  Let them remain there.  Meanwhile, a shooter opens fire at a synagogue in Poway, California, managing to slay one and wound three before being taken down himself.   God bless the victims.
  61. 2020 Monday: Thanks to the reopening of some states, the Stock Market has a great day.  The DOW Jones Industrial Average closes up 358.51 at 24,133.78; the S&P 500 closes up 41.74 at 2,878.48; and the NASDAQ closes up 95.64 at 8,730.16.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the one the Chinese claim is ‘not theirs but came out of the United States’ continues causing problems.  Global statistics show that currently, we have 3,002,303 confirmed cases what with 208,131 confirmed deaths and 878,813 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,005,934 confirmed cases what with 56,329 confirmed deaths but 112,913 confirmed recoveries so things are looking good- most places.  California’s confirmed cases rest at 44,792 and at 1,755 confirmed deaths.  The Chinese continue lying about their numbers.  Elsewhere, people continue to speculate about North Korean thug dictator, Kim Jong Un, who has been absent from world view for the past two weeks.  Many speculate he contracted COVID-19 and is near or at death whereas others claim he is on a ‘holiday.’  We shall see.  Finally, apparent Democratic Party 2020 presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden remains mum on allegations he sexually abused a staffer back in the 1990s when he was a senator.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!
  62. 2021 Tuesday: Stick around…

Meanwhile, in Cannes, France, the largest jewelry heist in recent memory takes place at the Carlton Intercontinental Hotel’s diamond show with thieves making off with 103 million Euros worth of precious gems and metals. Elsewhere, 44 people at least die and hundreds more are injured as ISIS carries out a wave of car bombings across the country.  In Dera Ismal Khan, Pakistan, the Taliban conducts a prison break freeing at least 300 dedicated jihadis who flee to the hills.  KILL THEM!
  46. 2014 Tuesday: In Sierra Leone during the Ebola virus crisis, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan succumbs to the disease himself, the principal physician battling against it. Meanwhile, in Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, the authorities claim that 100 of their citizens were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  IF Palestinians were killed, it’s because they were acting the fool- like usual.  In the wake of this, France announces it will send 8-million euros in aid to the Gaza.  Good for them, virtue-signaling is always good.
  47. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370. The plane disappeared over a year ago.
  48. 2016 Friday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party. Needless to say, her fellow Democrats fall into a celebratory swoon and sex workers around the city see the numbers of their patrons spike.  Virginia Senator Tim Kaine becomes her running mate.  What a pair of losers.
  49. 2017 Saturday: U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint live-fire exercises in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile; experts said the North Korean launch showed that a large portion of the United States was now within the range of Kim Jong Un’s arsenal of missiles.
  50. 2018 Sunday: Students in Dhaka, Bangladesh, launch protests around the nation demanding safer roadways. In a country as poor as this one, they are incapable of doing the necessary infrastructure work to make their nation safe.
  51. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number. Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  52. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Go get them, Republicans, go get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Congresswoman Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).
  53. 2020 Wednesday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 16,845,602 confirmed cases, UP by 240,535 cases, 662,577 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,240 deaths, and 9,836,182 confirmed recoveries, UP by 191,795 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,491,773 confirmed cases, UP by 65,492 new cases, 152,624 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,250 new deaths, and 2,204,332 confirmed recoveries, UP by 53,113 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).
  54. 2020 Wednesday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 475,503 confirmed cases, 8,715 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,865 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,215 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 54,205 confirmed cases, 1,548 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, New Jersey: 180,776 confirmed number of cases, 15,798 confirmed number of deaths, and like other Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Phil Murphy?  Acting like your typical Blue State governor and concealing the truth?  Nothing to say?  Let gym owners out of jail.
  55. 2020 Wednesday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,539.57, UP 160.29 points (0.61%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,542.94, UP 140.85 points (1.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,258.44, UP 40.00 points (1.24%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.60 per troy oz., +8.20 (+0.42%) while the price of SILVER is $24.36 per troy ounce, +0.034 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $957.90 per troy oz, -0.60 (-0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $2.93 per pound, +0.0105 (+0.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.29 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.05%).

[iv] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.
