  55. 2006 Friday: Rep. Mark Foley, R-FL 16th congressional district, resigned his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives for doing some Democrats do all the time and seemingly get away with- sending inappropriate emails to a congressional page.  What a double standard but then, Republicans ALWAYS crucify their own.

  58. 2009 Tuesday: As Britain continues its national program of immunizing the hell out of everyone, a 14-year-old schoolgirl who died after being given an immunization for cervical cancer is found to have had a tumor in her heart and lungs.  What is it with forcing immunizations on everyone without checking their health situations?  Socialized medicine, folks, not good, never good, and something every sane nation must avoid.
  59. 2010 Wednesday: For the first time in two years, North and South Korea agree to hold working level military talks.  Elsewhere, in Dagestan, Russian troops get lucky and kill at least 14 Islamist militants in heavy fighting.  Good.  Cover the bodies with pig’s blood.

Take that, communists!
  61. 2012 Saturday:  After the U.S. delists the Mujahedeen-e Khalq as a terrorist entity, Iran accuses the United States of having “double standards.”  Meanwhile, the Obama administration transfers a Gitmo detainee, Omar Khadr, to Canada where the murderous POS jihadist will complete his prison sentence.

  65. 2016 Thursday:  The U.S. Congress overrides the veto of President Barack Hussein Obama that will now allow U.S. citizens to sue Saudi Arabia over the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  Obama did not want people affected by the horrible attacks from suing the Islamic nation.  All but one of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia; go figure!
  66. 2017 Friday: Tom Price resigned as President Donald J. Trump’s secretary of health and human services amid investigations into his use of costly charter flights for official travel at taxpayer expense.  Meanwhile, Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, accused the Trump administration of “killing us with the inefficiency” after Hurricane Maria.  We must note that Mayor Cruz is a corrupt politician who was unable to distribute the vast resources that poured into the island following the storm.   Finally, the U.S. issues a no-travel warning to its citizens NOT to go to Cuba due to the ongoing sonic attacks on American citizens.  It also calls home some of the diplomatic staff in Havana thanks to the scurrilous behavior of the communist Cubans.
  67. 2018 Saturday: Tesla and its CEO, Elon Musk, agreed to pay $40 million to settle a government lawsuit alleging that Musk had duped investors with misleading statements about a proposed buyout of the company.   Elsewhere, some left-wing news sites report widespread demonstrations against center-right Brazilian businessman Jair Bolsonaro, the frontrunner in the presidential elections.  Go, Bolsonaro, go!
  68. 2019 Sunday:  Pro-Iranian Houthi rebels do a celebratory dance claiming they killed 500 Saudi soldiers, captured another 2,000, as well as wiped out a supply convoy on Saudi territory in the Najran region of the country.  Time to nuke Iran and to wipe out the Houthi scumbags. 
  69. 2020 Tuesday: A new PEW Poll shows that five percent of Trump and Biden voters MIGHT have their votes changed following tonight’s Round 1 2020 Presidential Debate in Cleveland, Ohio, depending upon who does better.  Meanwhile, Democratic Party presidential nominee “Pro-China Joe” Biden disputes he ever agreed to (1) a break after every 30 minutes and (2) that he agreed to an ear canal check to determine if either participant is wearing an ear device.  Many believe that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden cannot sustain 90 minutes of debate and that he will be seeking every avenue of support or escape.  Rush Limbaugh still speculates that something will arise that will permit “Pro-China Joe” a way out without losing face.  Dr. Jill going to come down with a sudden case of the CHI-VI?  We shall see.  Speaking of Cleveland, shop owners are boarding up windows and securing their facilities as the danger of violent mob ‘protests,’ i.e., out-of-control riots looms ever larger.  Another ‘anti-fascist group,’ Resist Fascism arrives in Cleveland ostensibly to fight against fascism but to serve as the Democratic Party’s Brown Shirts.
  70. 2020 Tuesday A: Judge Amy Coney Barrett arrives on Capitol Hill to begin meeting with lawmakers ahead of October 12 and the first day of confirmation hearings.  At least 6-8 Senate Democrats announce they won’t meet with her as a means of protest.  Meanwhile, New York City schools begin the reopening process as Mayor Bill Di Blasio continues to threaten JEWISH neighborhoods with complete shutdowns if they don’t toe the line and follow his orders.  Speaking of major cities such as New York City, we learn that since June of this year, violent crime rates have soared 53-percent over last year’s rates at the same time.  Clever work, Democrats, clever work.   Elsewhere, on the West Coast, major parts of Sonoma and Napa Counties are ablaze, once again thanks to rampant mismanagement by California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Like Nero, he continues fiddling, trying to find ways by which, he can continue funding CalPERS at the expense of caring for the state’s forests.  This man must be removed from office before 2022.  Now.
  71. 2020 Tuesday B: Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah dies at age 91.  Meanwhile, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson severs his ties with more than 95-percent of his fans by coming out and following communist China’s dictates and endorses the Biden-Harris 2020 ticket.  Rock- you are not only a sleazy opportunist, but you also appear to be a shill for Beijing.  NO MORE ROCK MOVIES! Meanwhile, attorney for Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn- Sidney Powell- updated President Trump on his former National Security Advisor’s case and asked that ‘he not pardon the general.’  She is trying to get Judge Emmet Sullivan to recuse himself from the case or accept the Justice Department’s recommendations to drop the collapsed case. Elsewhere, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe releases fabulous footage that shows ALLEGEDLY Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar!” Omar has operatives involved in ballot creation and ballot harvesting.  We hear from sources on the ground in Minnesota that she could very well lose her re-election bid.  Strip her of her citizenship and return her crooked butt to Somalia.
  72. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a whole– 33,484,120 confirmed cases, UP by 327,308 cases, 1,004,082 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,386 deaths, and 23,212,633 confirmed recoveries, UP by 251,197 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,229,559 confirmed cases, UP by 23,692 new cases, 208,335 confirmed deaths, UP by 217 new deaths, and 3,870,955 confirmed recoveries, UP by 7,882 new recoveries. 
  73. 2020 Tuesday D: 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: 816,095 confirmed cases, 15,683 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 12,351 confirmed cases, 132 confirmed deaths, and 10,215 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 90,712 confirmed cases, 2,203 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: 462,364 confirmed number of cases, 32,743 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths when he is the one who sent COVID-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were. PUT CUOMO ON TRIAL! 
  74. 2020 Tuesday E: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 233,265 confirmed cases, 1,507 confirmed deaths, and 165,191 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the Chi-Com rockets the Hamas goons love firing at innocent Israelis.  We know you are prepared Mo!
  75. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,452.66, DOWN 131.40 points (-0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,085.25, DOWN 32.28 points (-0.29%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,335.47, DOWN 16.13 points (-0.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,903.10 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $24.42 per troy ounce, -0.002 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $882.60 per troy oz, -4.90 (-0.55%) while the price of COPPER is $3.00 per pound, +0.009 (+0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,329.30 per troy oz., +57.80 (+2.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $39.13 per barrel, -0.16 (–0.41%).  Today, COCOA is $2,565.00 per metric ton, +3.00 (+0.12).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.82 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  76. 2020 Tuesday G: National Security Director John Ratcliffe released information in a letter to Sen. Lindsey Graham- on the eve of testimony by fired FBI Director James Comey- that Hillary Clinton approved a plan with the Obama administration.  The illegal operation the two cooked up together sought to dirty 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump by tying him to Russian intelligence services.  The question is whether then Director Comey expended the same amount of effort investigating Hillary Clinton as he spent investigating then-candidate Trump, then president- elect Trump, and finally President Donald J. Trump.  Not looking good for the Obamaists coup plotters.  Is prison looming large on the horizon?   Join the Trump Third Term Movement NOW.
  77. 2020 Tuesday H: Regarding to Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, here is today’s Democratic Party’s and Fake News Media Attack Phrase of the Day: “Illegitimate.”
  78. 2020 Tuesday I: Tonight, is the first debate between presidential contenders, President Donald J. Trump, and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden.  About half-way through the ‘grudge match,’ it would appear that Mr. Biden is managing to survive the ongoing assault from the president.  Moderator Chris Wallace is struggling to maintain control.  We believe- at this junction- that Democrats will say the president is losing due to his belligerence while Republicans will say the president was aggressive and fending off both the former veep and the moderator. This update at 6:48 P.M.  What we will say is the following: it’s an UGLY affair, no-holds barred mud wrestling at its worst.   
  79. 2020 Tuesday I: Update @ 07:39 p.m.: what a rough 96-minute debate.  President Trump allowed the anger built up after 3.5 years to unload on a feeble Vice President Biden.  The former veep managed to remain upright but towards the end of the debate, he was looking a bit wasted.  We suspect the Democrat will cancel the other two debates.  Winner?  We think the president allowed his anger to get the better of him and the former vice president did not drop dead.  What an ugly mess…
  80. 2020 Tuesday J:  Telemundo, the Spanish language media giant released a poll from the first debate between President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President Joe R. Biden.  The poll says President Trump won by a 66-percent margin to 33-percent for Mr. Biden.  Wow.  You go, Spanish speakers!   We have no clue as to what mischief the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges will be up today but when we find out, you’ll find out so please, stay tuned for further developments such as the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu…
  81. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a whole– 234,031,070 confirmed cases, +551,457, 4,787,486 confirmed deaths, +10,359 and 210,856,434 confirmed recoveries, +615,696.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 397,777 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 6,301 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xii]  
  84. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,277,270 confirmed cases, 7,732 confirmed deaths, and 1,220,396 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Russia, 5th country on the list: 7,487,138 cases of the virus, 206,388 confirmed death and 6,653,941 confirmed recoveries.

  86. 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 $4.397 per gallon, $3.057 in Florida, $4.074 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other Missouri: $2.853.  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- Israel: $7.709 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,819,205,239,855 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Thailand, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  87. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 188 for the famed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border from one legion after another of Third World illegal alien invaders and Day No. 95 since her sole visit anywhere NEAR the border.  Where is the esteemed ‘Border Czar?’  Ah, well, Texas border counties are preparing to hammer the Biden regime with a massive lawsuit over its lack of desire to enforce the laws and to defend the nation.  Most of these people living in these counties are Latinos who happen to vote Democrat.  Just saying.
  88. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Putin regime opens a new case against imprisoned Putin dissident, Alexei Navalny.  Meanwhile, North Korea claims the development of its new hypersonic missile is for DEFENSIVE needs rather than for offensive capabilities.  Next, we have some Chi-Com news for you today: first, there will be NO overseas visitors to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics which we hope no one sends athletes to due to the Chi-Coms infecting the entire world with the Xi Jinping Never-Ending Pandemic.  Secondly, the Chi-Com air force commander issued a veiled threat to the U.S. military: “Let us meet in the skies.”  Chi-Coms, shut the f**k up.
  89. 2021 Wednesday H: Health and Medical Alerts– A new poll says that 65-percent of Americans oppose loss of jobs for those opposed to submitting to COVID-19 vaccine mandates.  Agreed.  Another poll says that more than half of the American people do not really believe that current Chi-Vi vaccines are appropriate for children, especially those 5-11 years of age.  Meanwhile, GOP senators introduce the new TREAT Act designed to counter the rationing of the drug Regeneron by the Biden regime who is cutting supplies to Red States.
  90. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions and Authoritarianism News– Los Angeles County, California, is considering new rules/regulations for all customers going to bars and restaurants: they want COVID-19 vaccine passports or NO service.  Meanwhile, a judge in South Carolina slaps a temporary stay on enacting bans on the wearing of masks among school-aged children.  BIG GOVERNMENT wants to impose the wearing of masks on everyone.  Next, we learn that in the BIG SPENDING BILL the House speaker and her Democrat minions are promoting, there’s a big $700,000 fine for businesses NOT complying with the vaccine decrees.  Finally, the Kathy Hochul regime in New York is in the process of firing healthcare workers who did not meet the September 27, 2021, deadline to vaccinate or go on the public dole (which we believe will be cut off by government IF workers won’t vaccinate.  This is evil.  This is the Mark of the Beast and folks it looks like Joe Biden is indeed the Antitrump).
  91. 2021 Wednesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.53 (2) AstraZeneca $59.67 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.02 (4) BioNTech $277.44 (5) Moderna $378.90.

  96. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Mob mouthpiece White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to cover up for her missing-in-action, senile boss today by claiming the Three Stooges- Milley, McKenzie, and Austin- gave the dictator split opinions on what to do.  Jen, this in no way clears your boss; the man has NO clue as to what he is told much less as what to do.  Meanwhile, as the mainstream media- i.e., the fake news media- continues trying to cover for the botched Afghan withdrawal on behalf of the Biden regime, they, too, are taking increased incoming fire from across the country and around the world.  Embarrassing.
  97. 2021 Wednesday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The U.S. Department of Justice continues to aid the FALSE FLAG OPERATION conducted by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi by delaying the trials of the political prisoners scooped up on January 06, 2021, and in the immediate days and weeks following the set-up event.  They claim the delays are based upon ‘procedural issues.’  Oh, really?  Speaking of this sham subcommittee, the chairman and his thugs are sending out a flurry of subpoenas to former advisers and staffers of President Donald J. Trump.  They are attempting to make life as difficult as possible for these brave patriots.
  98. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Parents of imprisoned USMC Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller- who merely spoke his mind on the Afghan debacle- want both U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley to resign over their far too many failures while running the show on behalf of senile Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, at the hearing before the House Armed Services Committee today, the Three Stooges- Secretary Austin, Chairman Milley, and U.S. Central Command commander General McKenzie- were torn asunder by one Republican politician (with the exception of Liz Cheney who praised and defended the Three Stooges) for their failures connected to the withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Democrats did their best to circle the wagons around these three dunces but defending them proved to be impossible.  All three men must submit their resignations by the end of today.   Still, brave, patriotic souls such as Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, told the Three Stooges that ‘IF their commander in chief was NOT so out of it, all three of them would be FIRED.’  This led to angry Democrats apologizing to the three losers for the words of their conservative colleague.  Oh, wah, wah, wah!
  99. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News II– House Democrats continue trying to avert a federal government shutdown which- if it happens- will attach to them like the lips of a remora to the balls of a swimmer.  Thus, they are attempting to set up a vote with which to jack up the debt ceiling still more which will fall atop our children’s children’s children.  Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian leader of the House socialists, is doing her best to move forward with a vote on jacking up the debt ceiling.  In other shocking news, the Democrats now want to RAPE- i.e., TAX the retirement plans of the American people while providing all sorts of freebies to illegal aliens flooding into the United States.
  100. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News III– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is MORE outraged than ever after hearing Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley’s testimony than ever.’  All the man does is lie his ass off- Gen. Milley.  He’s a political general and nothing good ever happens to them.  Speaking of General Milley, he alluded to the fact that come spring of 2022, al-Qaida and the Taliban could commence new operations in the region.   Meanwhile, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN- a fighter if ever one existed- demanded that ‘transcripts between General Milley and his reporter pals must be produced to the Senate Armed Services Committee.’  General Milley also had to fend off attacks on him for having said that ‘Newsmax and The Epoch Times are akin to terrorists.’  Wow.  Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘he did NOT know about General Milley’s phone calls with his opposites in the Chinese Communist Party.’  We suspect NO one knew what this traitorous POS Milley was up to, friends.  Secretary Pompeo told journalist Megan Kelly that ‘NO one briefed him’ on this questionable action.
  101. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3599 what with a $21 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 12, 13, 16, 17, 22, and Mega 06.  Out of 107,152 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $12,680 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) ARCO AM/PM in Stockton, CA 95210; (2) Paradise Valley Produce Market in Spring Valley, CA 91977; and (3) Speedway in Carlsbad, CA 92011.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #891 with a jackpot of $570 million up for grabs: 02, 07, 11, 17, 32, and Powerball 11.  Out of 197,406 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,361,359.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Yuba City, CA 95993.
  102. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day I hope the Secret Service is maintaining a watchful eye on that big overweight bull dyke, “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney.  After all, she said, that ‘she will do anything to stop President Donald J. Trump from returning to the White House.”  That tells me she is crazy enough to stalk him and to take him out should he win the nomination in 2024 and/or win the White House later that fall.  Hatred like this only occurs on the left side of the aisle.  After all, they are the ones who now label MAGA supporters as ‘Nazis.’  Like Senator John McCain (good riddance), Liz Cheney is NO Republican even though she like he has/had an ‘R’ by their name.  No, Liz Cheney has drunk from the poisoned well of Jim Jones’ cyanide-laced Kool-Aid and her hatred grows for the 45th president grows more strident by the day.  Thankfully, her career- other than as a babbling head on MSNBC- is OVER.  The voters of Wyoming showed her the door by an electoral landslide of more than 30 points.  She is loser and will soon be gone.  Let us hope she realizes her time in the limelight is over and that she will sulk off into the D.C. swamp to enjoy whatever is left of her bitter life.  I just hope that the Secret Service is on the ball because this woman is a lunatic.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

  66. 2020 Wednesday E: Meanwhile, a U.S. Senate committee chaired by Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, finds both former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his son, the erstwhile Hunter, culpable of wrongdoing in the Ukraine.  This alone should drive the senile elder Biden from the race and send his son to prison for engaging in corruption, self-enrichment, and possible crimes.  Finally, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom announces that by 2035, NO MORE GAS-FUELED cars and trucks will be sold.  He claims this will improve the environment of the state.  Question, Governor Newsom: where will the power for these vehicles originate?  Wind and solar farms?  You are trying to lay off massive taxes on renewable energy sources in November so WTF is wrong with you?

  86. 2021 Thursday M: Political News II– In other pathetic Democratic Party news, after the White House said that it was looking for a private contractor to provide care for members of the HAITIAN INVASION in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the White House had to then rush out and say, “Oh, no, we aren’t going to send our beloved Haitian illegals to Gitmo.’  Wow.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse for the Biden regime, the Wall Street Journal says that troubling questions regarding Hunter Biden’s art sales continue to increase.  Oh, say it ain’t so!  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, said of Hunter Biden and the regime that ‘hypocrisy is rich when it comes to the first son.’  Next- and this is a shock to us as much as it is to country star Lee Greenwood, Joe Biden is going to remove the beloved entertainer from the Arts Council all because he performed for President Donald J. Trump.  WOW.  How flipping petty!  Finally, the feds are going to pay a Florida school district $150,000 because it refuses to follow “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis order banning mask mandates in the state’s public schools.  Wow to that, too.

  88. 2022 Friday: Observation of the Day On Tuesday, our nation hit a record never before seen in the history of the nation: 2 million illegal alien encounters on the U.S.-Mexico border and those are just the ones we’ve apprehended.  This is unsustainable, something we cannot permit and I am going to offer a solution.  Remember when the Saudis were offering high-priced boat tours along the coastline of Somalia?  About a decade or more ago, Somali pirates were wreaking havoc on commercial shipping and the navies of the world attempted to stop it.  However, maintaining naval and air assets in the area was costly and so they fell off as time progressed.  The Saudis would take their passengers aboard yachts and provide them with all manner of automatic weapons, ammo, and whatever else was required to kill pirates and then would like in wait, awaiting the inevitable speedboats full of crazed, drug-addled pirates parting the waves towards them.  Once within firing range, the passengers would light the f**king scum up, riddling the pirates with high-powered bullets and sending their boats to the bottom of the sea.  While some people called it ‘evil,’ others called it ‘necessary’ and over the last 5, 6, maybe even 7 years, we have heard little to nothing about ‘Somali pirates.’  Folks, let’s do something similar along the border.  At some point- and everyone understands this– we are going to have to begin shooting the invaders.  The longer we postpone the inevitable, the more it’s going to cost the American taxpayers.  I say, we begin running tours for people seeking to improve their shooting skills and to do what the f**king government will NOT do and that is to DEFEND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.  Hell, we might even allow the wealthiest customers to use vintage World War II tanks, imagine the revenues that would provide our cash-strapped government.  Let me know your opinion.  Thanks- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On April 12, 1988, Cheap Trick returned to fore with their next album- “Lap of Luxury”- their most successful since “Dream Police” of nearly a decade before.  Besides featuring Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitars, and synthesizers), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), Tom Petersson (bass and backing vocals), had returned home.  The Epic label was determined that Cheap Trick was going to have a ‘number one hit’ seeing as how they had not had a bona fide hit in eons, the label demanded they bring in outside songwriters which must have been somewhat insulting to Rick Nielsen, the principal songwriter.  Still, they had a NUMBER ONE HIT- their ONLY number one- in “The Flame.”  Considered a controversial number in the history of the band because feelings towards it were mixed, it is a FABULOUS TUNE and we love it.  It resurrected the group and most fans are onboard with it.  Add to that the cover of Elvis Presley’s “Don’t Be Cruel” and the delightful “Ghost Town” and one can see why we give this album the ringing endorsement that we do.  Seek it out and add it to your ever-growing collection of the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful on Saturday, 14-September-2013 and concluded the presentation on Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  Please check them out and add them to your growing CD collection- they are one of the greats.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Starship beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Airplane, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.  His brother was the lead guitarist for the Airplane.

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Alice Cooper one day so please keep posted until we do.  We think you will appreciate them, especially the original band.

[iv] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years.  Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.

[vi] Barack Obama most likely was born in Kenya as many sources claim and therefore an illegal president.,

[vii] We won’t be doing the music of Shawn Mendes.  We only do serious musicians.

[viii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment, but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday E: 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: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 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: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!
  73. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,995.60, UP 2.27 points (+0.008%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,190.32, UP 133.67 points (+1.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,401.20, UP 17.66 points (+0.52%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.90 per troy oz., -4.30 (-0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $27.34 per troy ounce, -0.119 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $978.40 per troy oz, -3.80 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, -0.006 (-0.20%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,417.50 per troy oz., +8.00 (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.39 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.29%).  Today, COFFEE is $124.30 per metric ton, +1.00 (+0.81).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.78 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them.  Today, communist China’s ally, the World Trade Organization released a ruling that says ‘the U.S. violated international regulations by imposing trade tariffs on $278 billion of Chi-Com goods entering the U.S.’  Stop the crying, Beijing, this is NOTHING ruling, and the U.S. will continue punishing you, authoritarian SOBS.
  74. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,150,151 confirmed cases, +480,596, 4,671,400 confirmed deaths, +8,373 and 203,826,456 confirmed recoveries, +454,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,432,847 confirmed cases, UP 144,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 684,572 confirmed deaths, UP 2,231,[vi] and 32,244,493 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,709.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]   
  75. 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 366,118 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 37,960 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  76. 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: 4,518,943 confirmed cases, 67,632 confirmed deaths, and 2,378,010 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,499,061 confirmed cases, 49,254 confirmed deaths, and 2,413,074 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 73,268 confirmed cases, 671 confirmed deaths, and 72,597 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 615,582 confirmed cases, 7,153 confirmed deaths, and 258,825 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New York: they have 2,423,298 confirmed cases, 55,269 confirmed deaths, and 2,116,680 confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  77. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,202,212 confirmed cases, 7,452 confirmed deaths, and 1,112,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Pierre and Miquelon, 213th area on the list: 31 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 30 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  78. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,814.39, UP 236.82 points (+0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,161.53, UP 123.77 points (+0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,480.70, UP 37.65 points (+0.85%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.60 per barrel, +2.13 (+3.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,795.20 per troy oz., -11.90 (-0.66%) while the price of SILVER is $23.89 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $941.90 per troy oz, +3.20 (+0.34%) while the price of COPPER is $4.41 per pound, +0.09 (+2.06%).

[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.85.     In Falklands Island Pound, one greenback equals 0.73 and in Fijian Dollar, a buck equal 2.07 and in French Pacific Franc, one dollar equals 100.70 of theirs. [xiii]        
  79. 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 $4.391 per gallon, $3.084 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.876 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Delaware: $2.998.  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- Liechtenstein: $6.865 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,764,701,405,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  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 next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  80. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, has a new bill with which to deny U.S. recognition of the Taliban ‘government’ in Afghanistan.  His GOP colleagues have sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken demanding the U.S. State Department slap a designation of ‘foreign terror group’ atop the Taliban which they are.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban 2.0 is the same terror group it has always been.’
  81. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 174 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle down along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 81 since her singular visit anywhere in the vicinity of the border.  What a disaster.  
  82. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korean continues demonstrating that they’re ‘still with us’ by test-firing cruise missiles into waters near Japan and South Korea.  When President Donald J. Trump was in office, relations between the so-called ‘hermit kingdom’ and the United States were relatively cordial whereas now, the North Koreans are ramping up their activities.
  83. 2021 Wednesday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The U.S. Department of Defense and Health and the Department of Human Services is planning on buying 1.4 million doses of Regeneron.  In other (BOGUS) news we heard today, ‘immigrants (i.e., ILLEGAL) will reportedly have to show ‘proof of Chi-Vi vaccination before swarming across the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Sure, right- how is this going to work?  Next, as the Biden regime continues pushing the idea of Chi-Vi booster shots atop 2-3 immunizations for the Wuhan Virus, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that MORE info regarding the need for such ‘boosters’ must be handed over by the Biden regime’s leaders.
  84. 2021 Wednesday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-And Authoritarianism News– As demands from the illegitimate regime in the White House grow for everyone to get vaccinated with the Chi-Vi vaccines, calls for ‘religious exemptions’ are on the increase.  We suspect that the Christian Scientist and Jehovah’s Witnesses’ churches are going to increase membership.
  85. 2021 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.77 (2) AstraZeneca $56.45 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.42 (4) BioNTech $355.25 (5) Moderna $434.46.  Follow the money, folks, follow the money.  All this talk of booster shots on top of the vaccines is crazy what with more and more reports about problems caused by the vaccines continue to proliferate.  IF you seek the truth, you must watch One America News and Newsmax.  The vaccines are causing far more problems than are reported in the mainstream media, which is not right, especially when European nations now are backing away from any discussion of booster shots.  The only reason the talk of booster shots is intensifying is because the Deep State and the Democrats are getting rich off them.  Look at that pig, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci- this guy is growing wealthy off the suffering of the American people.
  86. 2021 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.87 (2) General Dynamics: $198.48 (3) Boeing: $214.22 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.07 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $355.74.  This is how the Deep State and elected members of Congress grow rich, investing in companies in which they send billions of dollars.  This is not only illegal but highly immoral.
  87. 2021 Wednesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.01 (3) Honeywell: $221.69 (4) 3M: $184.19 (5) Teijen: $1,646.00.  These stocks are going to take off like rockets as the Deep State and elected members of Congress- and their staffers- continue investing in these firms either through themselves or via straw persons such as, uh, well, like Hunter Biden.
  88. 2021 Wednesday N: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $110.81 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.88 (3) Maple Leaf Foods Inc./Tofurkey: $27.11.  Like it or not, this is the next push as the Green New Deal continues becoming a part of our lives whether we want it to be or we don’t.  All one need do is to watch the movie, “Soylent Green” starring Edward G. Robinson and Charlton Heston.  Popular culture has a way of becoming reality if one lives long enough.
  89. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden- ever a man of science- says that ‘human activity is the root cause of extreme weather.’  Next, Joe Biden has demanded that Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, come to the White House so he can apply pressure on them to vote for his bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’
  90. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new McLaughlin poll says that ‘Joe Biden’s approval numbers have cratered, the American people are concerned, and that NO one likes “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- my colleagues in California tell me that Kamala Harris is detested by almost everyone in the state and the only good thing about her serving in the regime is that it gets her out of their state.  Chef Itzi).
  91. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– It would appear the Biden regime is tossing Saudi Arabia to the wolves what with the withdrawal of its top anti-missile defense systems in the country.  What the hell is going on here?  In other regime-related news, one of the regime’s favorites and purported candidate for U.S. ambassador to Ukraine- Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman- says if ‘what we hear about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, he must go.’  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Both of these men are absolute disgraces. [xvii].  Next, the U.S. Army says that soldiers refusing to get the ‘VID vaccinations may be forced out of the Army with less-than-honorable discharges.’  Yet, the U.S. Postal Service and elected members of Congress and their staffers do NOT have to undergo vaccination.  WTF!
  92. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– Something very strange occurred today when the Biden regime trotted out an enfeebled old Joe Biden to hold a Zoom conference with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson of England in which, the three leaders announced a new triumvirate of sorts with which to help the Aussies obtain nuclear-powered submarines.  Although the Chi-Coms were not mentioned, they acted as though this new alignment of the BIG THREE nations would counter Beijing’s ambitions in the region.  Most observers, however, believe the Brits and the Aussies came to senile Joe Biden’s aid so as to deflect all the negative press coverage it has been getting.  Even more embarrassing is that slobbering Joe could not even pull the name of the Australian leader out of his crumbling mind.  This was embarrassing and it also demonstrated that both Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison are in the tank for the Biden regime.  This is disgraceful and besides- we also believe the three countries are in the tank with the Chi-Coms, sort of a fait accompli.
  93. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Pope Francis- ever a creature of the left- says that ‘yes, abortion is murder but urges U.S. Roman Catholic bishops NOT to be political by denying so-called ‘Catholic politicians’ Holy Communion.  Folks, is the Pope on the Pro-Death money-go-round, too?  Like BIG PHARMA/vaccine manufacturers, Planned Parenthood and other infanticide-promoting organizations bestow BILLIONS of dollars upon left-wing and unscrupulous politicians and others.  It is akin to one selling their soul to Satan.
  94. 2021 Wednesday T: Moron News I– After little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez attended the $30,000 per plate Met Gala wearing a donated $35,000 designer dress with ‘tax the rich’ stenciled on the back of it, conservative groups are demanding an ethics investigation into perhaps the stupidest member of the U.S. House of Representatives which is indeed saying a lot.  We doubt any ethics investigation will go anywhere.  Look at Ilhan Omar, that woman married her brother to defraud U.S. immigration authorities and she is doing A-Okay.
  95. 2021 Wednesday U: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3595 what with a $17 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 07, 28, 45, and Mega 08.  Out of 108,351 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,854 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Dorose Liquor in Chatsworth, CA 91311 and (2) 7-Eleven in Vacaville, CA 95688. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #885 with a jackpot of $432 million up for grabs: 01, 04, 18, 46, 62, and Power 25.  Out of 93,905 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers for $2,581,768.  The winning ticket was sold at the General Store in Compton, California 90222.
  96. 2021 Wednesday V: The Wrap-Up– As someone who lives in Hawaii, I do not have an opinion on the recall election in California.  However, my colleagues living there say that it may have been a good thing if the Republican National Committee had dumped millions of dollars in the state to wage 24/7 ads blasting what they say is the ‘worst governor in the nation.’  Instead, it became a personality battle between Larry Elder and Governor Gavin Newsom, a battle that could not be won no matter how likable Mr. Elder is and how bad Governor Newsom is.  This is the Democrat Party’s secret weapon- Republican ambivalence.  They look at California and say, “We can’t win there,” and thus they send no money to help turn the tide.  The Republicans say, ‘move forward, we will return next year.’  No, GOP, you won’t.  The numbers of illegals flooding the state and the corruption surrounding the election system there is going to prevent that from occurring just as it will help empower Democrats to win the remaining few House seats currently held by Republicans.  You had your chance, and you blew it, all because the GOP itself is corrupt and unwilling to fight fire with fire.  My colleagues said the proof of election fraud is in the pudding: in less than an hour after the polls closed, the results were in. Amazing how that happens, and Governor Newsom won by Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro numbers.  California is lost forever.
  97. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day- Friends, we wish that Rush Limbaugh were still with us because he did predict that the Dems would discover a way by which, they could make elections meaningless and boy was he right.  They have tried to topple our system of elections through corrupting them just as they have by flooding the country with loads of illegal aliens.  The tricky thing about the illegal aliens is that many of them still cling to Christianity, a religion the Democrats despise and detest.  They also want them to get abortions- plenty of them- something your average illegal does not seek because of love of children.  Add to that the fact that the leftists are blatant socialists and have mobs of storm-troopers in the street and one can understand WHY the illegals are drifting more and more to the right and are eagerly registering as Republicans even though- technically- if we abide by the law- they cannot.  However, if it’s good enough for the Dems then it’s good enough for us.  I think it’s going to be  good election cycle.  The question is, can we maintain the wins or will we need to outlaw the Democratic Party?  I say, ‘OUTLAW THEM.’  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On October 08, 1978, Cheap Trick released their first live album, “Live at Budokan.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

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

[ii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

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

[xvii] IF the charges against Gen. Milley are true- and we pray they aren’t- his name will fall alongside those of Russian FBI spy Robert Hanssen and CIA traitor Aldrich Ames.  Names that every time they are heard cause patriotic Americans to spit.  This scumbag, Gen. Milley, says that ‘his calls to his Chi-Com ‘counterpart’ (we believe, MASTER) were designed to prevent conflict between the Chi-Coms and the U.S.  Folks, we believe that Milley is a creature of Beijing.  This is definitely NOT good.

Let us not forget that the Southern Democrats were the slaveowners and that the Northern Democrats did their best to provide them cover prior to and during the Civil War?

  48. 1991 Monday: Boxer Mike Tyson was indicted in Indianapolis on a charge of raping Desiree Washington, a beauty pageant contestant on this date in what many believe was a frame job to ensnare the embattled boxer. A jury convicted him, and he ended up serving three years of a six-year prison stretch.
  49. 1993 Thursday: Israel and PLO leaders agreed to recognize one another. While Israel has attempted to make peace, the lying Palestinians always do their best to avoid making peace.
  50. 1994 Friday: The U.S. agreed to accept about 20,000 Cuban immigrants a year. This was in return for Cuba’s promise to halt the flight of refugees. So instead of sending us immigrants, they send us criminals—and Obama opened the door to Cuba during his second term—son of a bitch!

  58. 2013 Monday: Near the foot of Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem, archaeologists discover 1,400-year-old treasure, called “the Opel Treasure.” Elsewhere, four days of vehicular gridlock began near the George Washington Bridge when two of three approach lanes from Fort Lee, New Jersey, were blocked off; Democrats later blamed the traffic jam on loyalists to New Jersey Governor Chris “Big Fats” Christie over the refusal of Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich to endorse Christie for re-election. Christie denied any prior knowledge of the lane closures.  Hmmm, could “Big Fats” big telling the truth or is he a lying scumbag?  We will never know.
  59. 2014 Tuesday: In Taiwan, the government arrests six scumbags for selling contaminated lard products to foodservice operations, manufacturers, and restaurant suppliers, the lard contained discarded cooking oil as well as waste material from leather manufacturers. Meanwhile, in Iran, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei undergoes prostate surgery. It must have gone well, in 2020, the old POS is still alive.

  61. 2016 Friday: During the second term of Barack Hussein Obama, North Korea conducted its fifth nuclear weapons test. Leader Kim Jong Un wanted to make sure he caused problems for the successor of the 44th president, whether it was going to be Hillary Clinton or Donald J. Trump.
  62. 2017 Saturday: At the 74th Annual Venice Film Festival, Guillermo Del Toro’s “Shape of Water” wins the coveted Golden Lion Award. The movie starred Michael Shannon, Octavia Spencer, Sally Hawkins, Richard Jenkins, and numerous others.
  63. 2018 Sunday: After six more women air their #MeToo allegations against CBS News boss Les Moonves in the New Yorker, he throws in the towel and calls it quits. Meanwhile, things are going crazy across Russia as police begin arresting anti-pension reform protests, rounding up one-thousand, or more, in a single day. Hey!  Vladimir Putin and his flunkies need to self-enrich so something has to give…
  64. 2019 Monday: After South Africa undergoes a wave of xenophobic violence, Nigeria says it will act quickly to repatriate at least 600 of their citizens. Since Nelson Mandela died, everything has gone to hell in the once-stable country. Meanwhile, singer John Legend[v] and plump wife Chrissy Tiegen light up President Donald J. Trump who launched into them on Twitter for criticizing his prison reform efforts.  He called them “foulmouthed’ and ‘boring,’ two criticisms the two ‘beautiful people’ didn’t like.  The truth always hurts.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Today, we learned that across the nation, Democrats dominate the requests for mail-in voting ballots. Folks, this is a time-honored variation of a psychological trick the Democrats ALWAYS use which is to depress their opponents into believing it’s a ‘done deal,’ that whomever the Republican president is, he is going to lose and to LOSE BIG. Don’t fall for it, let them do what they are doing.  Speaking of Democrats, we learned that the Harris-Biden 2020 Campaign raked in $355 million for the month of August: however, no reporting of the Trump-Pence tallies.  Elsewhere, Chicago reports that downtown Chi-Town renters are abandoning the city and who can blame them?  Lawlessness, mob violence, shootings, beatings, rapes, all are on the rise.  Thanks to this, occupancy rates have fallen by 5.2-percent over the past few weeks which means that Chicago- like New York City and other big BLUE STATE METROPOLISES- is going to die due to poor leadership and criminal mismanagement.   Next, Fox News reports that Obama-Biden, over their eight years in office lost 494,000 manufacturing jobs while over the past three years, Donald Trump gained them back.  Yet, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is on the campaign trails when he can wake up claiming HE is the one who will bring jobs back to America.   Speaking of President Trump, the Nobel Peace Prize group announced they were putting in Trump’s name for their 2021 Award thanks to trying to make peace with the North Koreans and for brokering a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, something, laughingly, that Vice President Biden claims ‘me and Barack set the foundation for;’ please, you two goobers did no such thing.  
  66. 2020 Wednesday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 27,605,570 confirmed cases, UP by 213,357 cases, 898,269 confirmed deaths, UP by 556 deaths, and 18,565,072 confirmed recoveries, UP by 187,663 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,434,718 confirmed cases, UP by 23,326 new cases, 193,119 confirmed deaths, UP by 668 new deaths, and 3,481,537 confirmed recoveries, UP by 30,719 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 motherf**kers).
  67. 2020 Wednesday 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: 747,603 confirmed cases, 13,899 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,025 confirmed cases, 88 confirmed deaths, and 3,063 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 81,133 confirmed cases, 2,046 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Wyoming: 4,103 confirmed number of cases, 42 confirmed number of deaths, and 3,451 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Mark Gordon for providing us the proper figures.
  68. 2020 Wednesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,940.47, UP 439.58 points (+1.60%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,141.56, UP 293.87 points (+2.71%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,398.96, UP 67.12 points (+2.01%).  The price of GOLD is $1,955.10 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $27.21 per troy ounce, +0.127 (+0.47%).  The price of PLATINUM is $924.10 per troy oz, -0.80 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.11%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,305.80 per troy oz, -37.40 (-1.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $37.83 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.58%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.83 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.37.
  69. 2020 Wednesday D: The Iranian garbage announce they are building a new, more secure site from which to enrich uranium at a much more rapid pace so they can build a bomb or two, the first one in 3.5-months. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard and their mullah bosses claim the Mossad destroyed their first site via fire and explosions earlier in the year. Folks, time to NUKE the living s**t out of these scumbags.  
  70. 2020 Wednesday E: Meanwhile, the Oscars announce complicated new diversity rules so we can all encircle the bonfire and sing ‘happy, happy, joy, you.’ Here they are: A QUOTA SYSTEM, how about that? To ensure more equitable representations, one of four lead actors must come from underrepresented groups such as black, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, or whatever else they can dream up along with 30-percent of all secondary actors must come from underrepresented groups including gays, the disabled, and the aforementioned groups as well as chicks.  In addition to that, the storylines/focus/themes must focus on underrepresented groups, and finally, at least two senior executives must come from underrepresented groups.  Wow, we already don’t watch movies now so from this point forward, we won’t be watching any flipping movies but if a producer wants their film to qualify for an Oscar- any Oscar- they will have to meet each of these requirements or qualify for NOTHING.   
  71. 2020 Wednesday F: The woman accusing President Donald J. Trump of sexual assault, aka ‘rape,’ back in the 1990s- E. Jean Carroll- says the U.S. Department of Justice’s decision to defend the president was “UNPRECEDENTED.” It is not unprecedented as many times the U.S. Department of Justice will insert itself into a legal case on behalf of an individual federal employee and since President Trump IS a federal employee, it is perfectly legal and common. Carroll claims that since the president recently disputed her accusations by saying (1) it never happened and (2) he doesn’t know her; it has harmed her credibility and her reputation.  Wah-wah-wah.  The Westfall Act gives federal employees absolute immunity from legal actions such as these and since Ms. Carroll is going to court in New York State, one can smell the malevolent odor of New York State Attorney General Letitia “Tish” James (as well as decrepit old battleax Hillary Rodham Clinton) somewhere in the mix.  We suspect that “Pro-China Joe” Biden will attempt to copy Trump’s tactics at a debate between he and Mrs. Clinton back in 2016 when the NY real estate developer and media mogul trotted out all of Bill Clinton’s rape accusers and sat them in the front row to throw the former first lady, senator, and secretary of state off her game- it worked but Ms. Carroll won’t sway Trump.  You can bet on it.  With the U.S. defending Trump, the case moves from New York State courts to the federal courts where she will end up the one in trouble.  Count on that, too.
  72. 2020 Wednesday G: Excerpts from Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, “Rage,” have clips of President Trump on tape downplaying COVID-19’s danger. President Trump has done more than any other country around the globe to defeat this Chi-Com bat flu, yellow fever virus running amok and when questioned on his statements, the commander-in-chief says he did ‘not want to cause a panic.’ Sounds about right.  What matters here is that communist China LIED to the world and must pay a price for their crimes against humanity.  Elsewhere, on the campaign trail, Joe’s anti-senility meds are working fairly well today, and he uses the admissions of Trump on tape to blast him and to tell the world all the amazing things he will do as president.  God help us!
  73. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 223,995,675 confirmed cases, +737,757, 4,619,835 confirmed deaths, +12,049 and 200,583,433 confirmed recoveries, +782,535.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 356,119 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 47,959 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

Federal Prisons: they have 55,909 confirmed cases, 257 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  76. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,145,932 confirmed cases, 7,313 confirmed deaths, and 1,059,332 confirmed recoveries (same numbers). Let us look at one other portion of the world- Greenland, 207th country on the list: 377 cases of the virus, N/A confirmed deaths and 309 confirmed recoveries. [ix]

  78. 2021 Thursday E: 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 dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $3.009 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.883 in Washington state. [xiv] Let us look at one other location- Alabama: $2.840. 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- Spain: $6.312 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,741,965,625,065 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is All others with $215 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.
  79. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘it’s no surprise’ that four former Gitmo detainees are now running the show in Afghanistan. Next, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th congressional district, says that ‘Congress has neglected any talk of the failed Afghan evacuation.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mark Green, R-TN 7th congressional district, says recently imported Afghan refugees dumped in Virginia are able to have free-run of the state.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Taliban and other enemies of the U.S. do not fear us.’  Immigration guru and former Trump confidante Stephen Miller told Newsmax today that the ‘goal of the Biden regime is to settle as many refugees around the country as it possibly can.’
  80. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 169 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show and Day No. 76 since her sole visit to the border to do her job. Anyhow, here are the numbers as presented by One America News for the utter disaster befalling the nation. First, here are the numbers for the cost as of this day for caring for all this riffraff: $517,821,024.  Next, here is the cost for just this year of caring for the castoff products of the Third World: $275,586,383,872.  Next, here are the numbers for illegal aliens who have swarmed into the United States this year: 2,824,539.  Finally, here are the numbers of illegals estimated to be living in the country: 36,824,540.  However, we know the number is double that, if not higher.  This must stop. (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).  Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden has been totally absent during the southern border crisis.’
  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Saudi Arabian Embassy in Washington, D.C. says that it ‘welcomes’ the upcoming disclosure of its role in the September 11, 2001, terror attacks and notes that it had NO role in them whatsoever. We shall see. Next, Yair Netanyahu- Benjamin Netanyahu’s son- says Israel is ‘spiraling out of control without his dad in office.’  Meanwhile, in other truly crazy news, New South Wales, Australia, has people on lockdown and now is putting a cap on the amount of alcohol one citizen can have delivered to their home or apartment per day: six beers or one bottle of wine.  What the hell is going on in that totally insane country?  This is frigging loony tunes, folks.  Finally, Chi-Com warplanes are penetrating Taiwanese airspace every day.  The war is coming…
  82. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– New Jersey police and firefighters are protesting in the streets against COVID-19 vaccine mandates being imposed upon them. Fight back, people, fight back. Meanwhile, liberal hypocrisy is on full display today: where once the American Civil Liberties Union stood against government-opposed mandates- especially medical ones- the ACLU now stands firmly behind all those seeking to impose harsh COVID-19 restrictions and vaccine mandates on the American people.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says there are too many new cases of the ‘VID to stop calling it a pandemic.’  “Phony Tony,” we hate to say this but it’s now endemic, something with which, we will just have to live- thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, Rep. Andy Harris, R-MD 1st congressional district, says there’s ‘no reason WHY someone who has had COVID-19 should have to get the vaccines.’
  83. 2021 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.03 (2) AstraZeneca $56.29 (3) Johnson & Johnson $168.07 (4) BioNTech $351.38 (5) Moderna $455.92. As you can see, the money-go-round is alive and well. Moderna is developing a 1-dose booster shot for the Chi-Vi and the flu, combined together in a double-whammy of God knows what to the human body.  Experts in the medical industry say that it takes two years at least to put a vaccine through clinical trials and we have not done that yet.  Anyone takes this crap, God help them.  Next, Joe Biden was bragging on the U.S. donating 140 million doses overseas with another 500 million slated to go to poor, highly deserving countries around the world.  Once again, here is the money-go-round in action.  Politicians and Deep State apparatchiks are highly invested in these companies and thus the federal government BUYS the vaccines, ships them elsewhere, and the aforementioned politicians and apparatchiks receive dividends as well as campaign funding and other freebies from these companies.  This is EVIL.
  84. 2021 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.66 (2) General Dynamics: $203.81 (3) Boeing: $213.94 (4) Lockheed Martin: $348.93 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $356.78.
  85. 2021 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.12 (2) DuPont: $70.30 (3) Honeywell: $222.93 (4) 3M: $185.75 (5) Teijen: $1659.00. WHY do you think that losers such as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and the CDC director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky continue pushing the wearing of masks? Like the vaccines, it’s the classic money-go-round as outlined above.  (Note- soon, we will begin doing the fake meat company stocks as the war on meat is on the way as of today…)
  86. 2021 Thursday M: President Donald J. Trump News– Gold Star mother Shana Chappell invited President Donald J. Trump to her U.S. Marine son Kareen Nikoui who was killed in the bomb blast at the Hamid Karzai International Airport- along with 12 other U.S. servicemembers- last month.
  87. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden released his oppressive ‘plan’ to get ‘COVID-19 under control.’ He is going to increase the pressure to get 80 million Americans who remain unconvinced or who simply won’t get the vaccine to undergo vaccination whether they want to or not. He is going to demand mask mandates and will counter any governor’s plan to either overlook demanding vaccinated employees or who blows off mask mandates (please see our new section on PPE manufacturers’ stock prices to understand the money-go-round on all this bull crap).  He wants to get schools open, will require ALL companies with 100 or more employees to force ALL employees to undergo vaccination even as he provides the U.S. Postal Service a carve out- NO vaccinations for them!  Say, what the f**k?  (The Republican National Committee is suing the Biden regime over its new COVID-19 ‘mandates’).
  88. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden was talking crap the other day about the U.S. Stock Market and the effect he was having on it. Well, stocks are tanking as are his approval numbers. Joe Biden now is a few points shy of what President Jimmy Carter’s were towards the end of his first and only term in office.  Joe Biden has collapsed below 40-percent approval which is not good for a usurper who has only been in office eight months.
  89. 2021 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– Amid growing resistance from the GOP, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen urges Congress to raise the debt ceiling before the government implodes. Next, the Biden regime is planning on hitting ALL Americans with massive tax increases such as charging drivers a tax of $0.08 per mile (actual figure will vary depending on types of vehicles). As for death taxes, unsold assets will be subject to tax as high as 43.3-percent for the wealthiest households on top of a 40-percent estate tax for millionaires.  Capital gains taxes will increase from 21-percent to 28-percent with a top marginal rate of 39.6-percent.  This is ONLY the beginning.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime had to pull the nomination of one of the worst POS yet to come out of this fraudulent regime, David Chipman nominated to head the Bureau of Alcohol and Tobacco.  What difference does it make?  The regime will send some other nut up to Capitol Hill to try to get confirmed.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Joe Biden lays out a plan to lower drug costs for associated with Medicare. (Note- President Donald J. Trump already did this, you loser). Next, the Biden regime is slamming the meat industry for ‘pandemic pricing.’  Joe, there were no workers, no livestock feed deliveries, WTF is wrong with you?  Why the f**k don’t you just shut the hell up?  What a loser.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice is suing Texas over its new fetal heartbeat abortion ban law. 
  91. 2021 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The FBI released new info on the ‘Capitol Hill pipe bomber.’ We think they have another Cesar Sayoc in the works. IF you don’t know who Mr. Sayoc is, look him up- that was bullshit, too.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian destroying the country, is putting Fort Pelosi back up ahead of the upcoming protest on Capitol Hill grounds in support of the political prisoners still in the slammer in D.C.  (We suspect that this protest is going to be infiltrated by Antifa and BLM agents who will then make this event even more explosive than the one on January 06, 2021.  See how it all works?  It’s not good).
  92. 2021 Thursday S: Political News I– Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, must stand up and do something with (losers) Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. Amen, boot those two scumbags out of the Republican conference. NOW.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he is asking SCOTUS to declare proxy voting in the House unconstitutional.
  93. 2021 Thursday T: Political News II– Rep. Clay Higgins, R-LA 3rd congressional district, said today that the U.S. is ‘greatly weakened’ since Joe Biden cheated his way into the White House. Next, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci should be charged with lying before Congress which he did.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, conservative icon Todd Starnes said that Joe Biden should ‘show some respect for both the U.S. military and the U.S. Constitution.’  Good luck with that, Mr. Starnes.
  94. 2021 Thursday U: Business News– Amazon.com announces it’s going to ‘invest $1.2 billion over the next four years to put their frontline employees through college or to get their high school diplomas. (Note- Eric Bolling at Newsmax said, ‘how about paying some taxes, Amazon?’ Everyone wants the answer to that pressing question).
  95. 2021 Thursday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Washington, D.C. Roman Catholic Archbishop Wilton Gregory says that ‘Joe Biden is NOT demonstrating Catholic faith.’ We concur. It is fake Catholics such as these who are going to be visiting Hell.  They have forgotten the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church.
  96. 2021 Thursday W: Social Media News– Many were shocked when a racist bitch wearing a gorilla mask of all-things threw an egg at gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder, R-CA, and then tried to fight with his security. Typical liberal BS but the Twitter verse is up in arms over this incident. About flipping time, folks.
  97. 2021 Thursday X: California State News– Democrats are beginning to sob tears over the impending doom for Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom. We are praying that POS is BLOWN OUT. (Hey, Gavin- where’s those relief checks you were going to send us?).  In fact, slobbering Joe Biden is coming to California to campaign for “Nazi” Newsom this upcoming Monday. 
  98. 2021 Thursday Y: Sports News I– The opening game of the 2021-2022 NFL Season begins with the Dallas Cowboys playing the world champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In a nail-biter of a game, the Bucs pulled it out in the final couple of seconds to win by a final score of 31-29. What a game.  The Cowboys played their hearts out but if you give Tom Brady a couple of seconds, that son-of-a-gun will pull it out.
  99. 2021 Thursday Z: For us, this is the midpoint of the week. Let us see what Beijing Biden is up to today… NFL 2021-22 Season opens tonight with the Dallas Cowboys visiting Superbowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bucs, obviously…
  100. 2022 Friday: Friends, I know everyone is celebrating the ‘lowered gasoline prices’ for which, frigging Joe Biden gets all the ‘credit’ but it’s a phony lowering of prices.  As everyone should know, he has tapped our Strategic Oil Preserve which President Donald J. Trump worked so diligently to fill with much of it flowing across the Pacific Ocean so we can pay the interest on our debt.  The real stunner will be the day after Election Day when oil prices will skyrocket back up because the Dems will have two years to ride out the tidal wave of anger until the 2024 Election Cycle.  I think prices will rise higher than what they were before the artificial lowering because the prices will reflect the true cost of gasoline as things now stand.  Democrats do not want people using gasoline-powered cars and so once unrestrained by what voters think, the prices will rise and will continue to rise thus worsening our economic circumstances.  This November, we must vote out every frigging Democrat no matter if they seem ‘reasonable’ because none of them are.  We must neuter the Biden regime and force them to go even more draconian in their retributions against us so everyone can see that Joe f**king Biden is little more than a senile tool of Barack Hussein Obama, a fraudulent president if ever one existed.  Let me know what you think.  Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[i] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Byrds and then Buffalo Springfield, had we been more perceptive at the time as to how we would combined integrated musical groups and performers, we should have done the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, as well as each artist’s solo catalog as well as that of the various members of the Byrds.  We look forward to correcting that mistake at some point in the next 3-5 years so please remain alert for that day.  You will be glad you did.

241. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 29, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, I don’t drink as much Kool-Aid as some of my colleagues do so we will do our best to keep things moving ahead without so much bombast. You know what I am saying, we no talk stink about Democrats being evil and President Biden being a senile bonehead. That is not my style nor will it be. Besides, the prospect of Donald Trump going to prison is giving me chicken skin up and down my arms.

  69. 2020 Saturday A: Early this morning, police in Portland, Oregon, declared yet another riot after a so-called ‘peaceful protest’ once again erupted into a violent mob shortly after midnight.  These peaceful ‘beatnik types’ tried to trap law enforcement officers inside the police union building and then did everything they could to set it ablaze and murder the people inside.  Folks, there is an answer to this: anyone tossing a Molotov cocktail, you shoot them dead.  This stops this sort of illegal activity in its tracks and puts everyone else on notice as to what you will and what you WON’T accept.  This used to be the way things were done.  Elsewhere, another military mishap occurs as a U.S. Army helicopter crashes into San Clemente Island 70 miles off of Coronado, California, killing two special forces soldiers and wounding several others.  Finally, U.S. Director of National Intelligence ignites a firestorm among House Democrats when he says he ‘will no longer testify in person before the House about Election security.’  He will, however, provide written answers.  Of course, the Dems are angry, they can no longer showboat and act like a bunch of rapscallions as they do any time a member of the Trump administration testifies before them.

[i] We promoted the music of both Koss and Back Street Crawler when we did the previous batch of famed British bands.

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

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

[iv] See footnote ii.

[v] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[vii] 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.

[viii] We look forward to promoting the music of Roy Orbison when we do other classic rockers such as Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers, and others of that ilk.

[ix] See footnote vii.

[x] Many of the Yippies are the parents of the Antifa and Black Lives Matter trash running rampant in America’s streets in 2020.  Time to tune up their kids- NOW.

[xi] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.  The album, “Abracadabra,” which features the cut appeared on Tuesday, 09-August-2011.

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

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

  53. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02.  She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off one hundred officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it. 
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,185,153 confirmed cases, UP by 227,115 cases, 738,800 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,911 deaths, and 12,450,681 confirmed recoveries, UP by 292,606 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,224,867 confirmed cases, UP by 65,127 new cases, 166,456 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 2,623,403 confirmed recoveries, UP by 111,801 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  55. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, thirty-four confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN).  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers your malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.

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

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

206. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JULY 25, 2022

2022 Monday: As the Voice of Occupied Los Angeles, California, a place overrun with illegal aliens, gangbangers, corrupt politicians, and liberal losers, let me ask a pertinent question: could Joe Biden’s feebleness be the result of long-term syphilis? Everyone knows that back in the day, not only did Senator Teddy Kennedy- aka, the “Lion of the Senate”- but so did good buddies, Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Joe Biden. Leave it to some losers like Dr. Jill to push her mentally disabled husband into a position of power that he cannot hope to ever have a grip on. Dr. Jill should be in prison and her husband in the loony bin for old gropers and hair-sniffers.

[xix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,565,021,806,001 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.

  83. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 124 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border crisis and Day No. 30 since her one and only visit to the border.  One America News compiles a running tally of the crisis down there, a tally we gladly share with our readers who don’t watch the network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $721,816,512.  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for all the noncitizens in the country: $225,379,401,728.  Third, here is the number of illegals estimated to have crossed the country just this year: 2,309,958.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the number of illegals currently residing in the country: 36,309,960.  We say this every day that when the AICPENDBLOG.COM began tapping out blogposts back in the spring of 2009, we estimated the numbers then at between 35-50 million illegals and everyone jeered at our estimates.  Thus, we did the digging and now, we believe the numbers to be closer to 75-100 million, an unsustainable number if ever one existed.  It is what it is, we guess.
  84. 2022 Monday: As the Voice of Occupied Los Angeles, California, a place overrun with illegal aliens, gangbangers, corrupt politicians, and liberal losers, let me ask a pertinent question: could Joe Biden’s feebleness be the result of long-term syphilis?  Everyone knows that back in the day, not only did Senator Teddy Kennedy- aka, the “Lion of the Senate”- but so did good buddies, Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Joe Biden.  Leave it to some losers like Dr. Jill to push her mentally disabled husband into a position of power that he cannot hope to ever have a grip on.  Dr. Jill should be in prison and her husband in the loony bin for old gropers and hair-sniffers.

[v] 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.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] The so-called “Lion of the Senate,” Teddy Kennedy, a Democrat, was little more than a sexual deviate and a murderer.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

[viii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[ix] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time however, we overlooked presenting the music of the group’s individual members- Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Welch, Lindsay Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.  We hope to do that at some point in the near future.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

  80. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Chi-Coms have announced that WHEN hostilities break out between the communists and the freedom-loving peoples of the REAL China- Taiwan- the Japanese had better stay the hell away or the Chi-Coms will DESTROY them.  Talk like this makes us wish the Imperial Japanese had overrun China in the 1930s and were still there today because in the ultimate struggle between freedom and tyranny, the Chinese Communist Party is the NUMBER ONE THREAT to the free peoples of the planet.  Not so much because of their military might but because of their use of United States dollars to finance the buying off of governments around the world to do their bidding and become lackeys.  We are big proponents of a neutron bomb first strike on all Chi-Com military bases and sites, something that should have occurred back in 1950.
  81. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The Delta variant of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu is the prevailing one in the United States right now, one that drooling Joe Biden is going to dispatch his Joestapo agents door to door to make sure everyone has their vaccine.  Uh, Joe, if people go door to door forcing Americans to get this bulls**t vaccine, people are going to get their asses beat, if not shot.  And besides…what about it’s MY body, MY choice?  Six months ago, I thought if Trump was pushing the vaccine, we shouldn’t take it whereas now, EVERYONE must take it.  (Note- as a woman of piety and religious conviction, it sounds a great deal like the ‘Mark of the Beast’ to me).  In England, Chi-Vi cases there have quadrupled since last month.
  82. 2021 Wednesday I: Political News I– A new Echelon poll says that IF President Donald J. Trump does not run for a third term, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis is the hands-down favorite to win the White House in 2024.  In other political news, powerhouse Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd CD, says that ‘Joe Biden talking tough to Russia is comical.’
  83. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is sending billions of dollars to Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot, CPUSA, to help her quell the crime wave surging throughout the Windy City, a wave of crime the ugliest woman in the world blames on President Donald J. Trump and gun store owners in neighboring Indiana.  We predict 95-99-percent of the money slobbering Joe Biden is sending there will end up in the Swiss bank accounts of everyone in public office within the nation’s third largest city.  It’s inevitable.
  84. 2021 Wednesday K: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– President Donald J. Trump said today that ‘Hunter Biden’s laptop makes Al Capone look like a baby.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, the punk who filmed George Floyd’s death and then became an instant star lost his uncle in a crash with law enforcement as he was trying to flee from a crime scene.
  85. 2021 Wednesday L: National Security News– Grant Stinchfield reported on his Newsmax show that BIG WALL STREET BANKS and pension funds are buying up entire neighborhoods with which to turn them into rentals, thus keeping the American people in a state of bondage.  We have warned of this for several years now but we believe that enemy nations such as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others if smart are purchasing up housing tracts and commercial properties, not for resale but for purposes of transforming into rentals.  They do this via straw companies and buyers and in so doing are becoming the landlords of the American people which is a national security risk.  It is a risk the same way that a POS such as Bill Gates buying up American farmland at a rate heretofore unseen in U.S. history and then leaving it fallow is a national security risk.  This must stop.  NOW.
  86. 2021 Wednesday M: Human-Caused Disasters– The death toll in the Surfside, Florida, condo collapse now hovers somewhere around 46-50 with at least 90-plus still unaccounted for.  Local authorities say that any hope of finding anyone alive in the rubble now is almost impossible.
  87. 2021 Wednesday N: Fake News I– CNN took it upon itself to scold American parents for ‘not comprehending Criminal Race Theory,’ uh, what they call Critical Race Theory which is nothing but bigotry on steroids.  The foundation of Criminal, uh, Critical Race Theory is that the country was built atop SLAVERY.  Slavery was NOT good, but they act as though the United States was the ONLY nation in the world that had slaves.  When the Spanish came, they brought slaves as did the Portuguese, the Dutch, and the British, it was the way of life just as it is now.  Granted, slaves may not labor on plantations, but they sell their bodies against their will or hump drugs across the border.  The gist of the whole story is this: Haiti ended slavery in 1798.  Mexico in 1821.  The United States in 1865 at the cost of more than 600,000 lives, while Brazil ended slavery in 1881.  Heck, Saudi Arabia ended slavery in 1961 so what is the point in all this HATE being spewed by members of my party?  As a black woman, it offends me, they offend me, and it’s high time we take our country back and run this godless riffraff out of the country NOW.  Enough with the hate.  Nikole Hannah Jones and all the rest of the race pimps should be ashamed.  Besides, they are doing the Chi-Coms’ work for them.  -Bea O’Malley.
  88. 2021 Wednesday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Today, President Donald J. Trump announced the launch of a class-action lawsuit against Facebook, Twitter, and Google.  Everyone who has been victimized by any of these scurrilous scoundrels of left-wing companies understands the rank power these little boys and illegal aliens possess over the American people which is simply NOT right and must be stopped.  Famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that Trump’s lawsuit is ‘particularly important.’
  89. 2021 Wednesday P: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, we have Super Lotto Draw #3575 with a $61 million jackpot on the line and second, we have Powerball Draw #861 with a $113 jackpot on the line for some lucky dog.  Stick around for the results of both.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 10, 12, 32, 37, 39, and Mega 18.  Out of 134,375 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $23,803 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Shell, McClellan, CA 95652 and (2) another Shell in Mariposa, CA 95338.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #861: 08, 21, 30, 49, 57, and Power 08.  In California, out of 61,837 winning tickets, the highest winners were 28 people who had FOUR numbers but no Powerball for a prize of $571 apiece.
  90. 2022 Thursday: Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with the rest of us…
