  55. 2017 Thursday: According to On This Day, scientists at Cal-Tech publish an article in the journal, “Current Biology,” of the first brainless animal, the jellyfish Cassiopeia, that actually ‘sleeps.’  Most scientists believe that only animals gifted with brains sleep, as it is a normal function for creatures with thought processes.
  56. 2018 Friday: Trembling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford offers to testify before the U.S. Senate on the allegations of rape and sexual abuse she launched against President Donald J. Trump’s second U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  It would later turn out that she was a liar as were other women- most notably those turned up (or out) by thug attorney, Michael Avenatti.  It was all a scheme to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation and drive him from the nomination.  It didn’t work.
  57. 2019 Saturday: In Indonesia’s Jambi Province, skies go bright red as the worst illegal forest fires since 2015 blaze away, destroying more than 800,000 acres and causing respiratory distress for more than a million citizens.  They need Smokey the Bear. 
  58. 2020 Monday: Tropical Storm Beta is expected to attain hurricane status when it arrives on the Texas gulf coast at some point late today/early tomorrow.  Meanwhile, outside Los Angeles, the Bobcat Fire doubles in size thanks to warm winds breathing new life into it.  Next, on the other side of the country, New York City Transit officials say yesterday’s derailment of a subway train occurred due to vandalism.  No one was hurt but it’s clear that Antifa/Black Lives Matter is extending its reach when it comes to terrorism. 
  59. 2020 Monday A: Moving on, the Biden-Harris (or is it Harris-Biden) 2020 campaign announces it has $466 million in its coffers, having pulled in more than $100 million in the previous 48 hours by milking the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whereas the Trump-Pence campaign as $325 million on hand.  Speaking of President Trump and Justice Ginsburg, the commander-in-chief announces he will nominate his replacement pick for Justice Ginsburg on Thursday or Friday of this week.  All the while, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi promises to impeach President Trump- again!- should he fulfill his constitutional duty to nominate someone to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.   Meanwhile, well-known genius Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC says that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, moves forward with hearings on the nominee, that he ‘is playing with fire.’  Yikes.
  60. 2020 Monday B: Speaking of angry Democrats, the Dems say they are going to (1) end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate on EVERYTHING meaning every vote will be decided by the nuclear option, 50-percent plus one.  (2) They will give statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columba.  Why not give statehood to the U.S. Virgin Islands, to Guam, to Northern Marianas Islands, and to American Samoa.  (3) They plan to stack the Supreme Court with an additional five to seven justices.  (4) They plan to topple the Electoral College.  (5) They plan to increase taxes by $3 TRILLION as well as to reimpose the Obamacare mandate, all the rules and regulations overturned and removed by the Trump administration, and jump back in to the JCPOA, the Paris Climate Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  (6) They are going to grant the franchise to prisoners serving time, to felons, and to 15-and-16-year-olds.  What more can we say?  We must crush this illegitimate, Chi-Com colluding political party.  It is us or them.
  61. 2020 Monday C: Famed NBA star and noted ‘genius’ LeBron “Full of Fecal Matter” James of the Los Angeles Lakers chides Lori Loughlin, actress, and her husband who must go to prison for having bribed the university of their daughter’s choice to get her in, for allowing Loughlin to choose the facility.  LeBron says ‘it ain’t right.’  Elsewhere, a survey finds that unless Chinese Virus relief issues are soon met, 60-percent of all restaurants will close their doors forever.  Imagine all the real estate the Chi-Coms will be buying via shadow companies, straw buyers, and of course, their Democratic Party hacks.
  62. 2020 Monday D: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr labels three cities in the United States as anarchist jurisdictions- New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, for permitting and enabling out-of-control riots, mob violence, looting, rape, robbery, arson, and murder.  The AG said: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest.  We cannot waste federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance.”  The federal government seeks to strip these cities who have crippled their law enforcement via defunding or reduction so as to force them back into line.  New York City currently receives about $7 billion annually from U.S. taxpayers.  This must stop. Strip Portland and Seattle of their funding, too, until they regain their senses, or the voters replace them.   
  63. 2020 Monday D: A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled today that mail-in election ballots can be counted for up to SIX DAYS post-Election Day so long as they are postmarked on Election Day.  Bret Baier on FNC believes this will go to the Supreme Court to be overturned or put into law.  Meanwhile, President Trump is on the trail in the Midwest, stopping in Ohio and traveling elsewhere while “Pro-China Joe” Biden visited Wisconsin, there to try to re-energize his flagging base.  Question is, WHO is the real string-puller behind former VP Biden?  We suspect it’s none other than Xi Jinping and that Rep. James Clyburn is the conduit through which the alleged cash flow goes.  Think about it: Biden was at the bottom of the Democrats’ heap until Clyburn vouched for him, impeachment failed, the U.S.-Sino Trade Deal signed and then the Chi-Com Flu arrived on scene.  We don’t believe in coincidences nor should YOU.

  74. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– A report says that another 6,000 Haitians are tramping north through Mexico to Bidenville under the Del Rio, Texas, overpass.  This sounds like a job for napalm.  Just saying.  Anyhow, violence is breaking out in towns in their path as the Haitians fight one another to get on any available transportation north.  Here are the numbers from One America News for today.  First, here is the cost for caring for the invaders for just this day: $533,574,040.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for Joe Biden’s new citizens: $288,752,762,880.  Here are the numbers of illegals who have swarmed across the U.S.-Mexico border for 2021: 2,959,484.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, mind you, of the illegals lurking in the country as you read this: 36,959,484.  We believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Speaking of this disaster, today is Day No. 180 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 87 since she visited the border.  Where can we get a ‘no-show job’ like the one this loser has?  (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).
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says of Joe Biden that he ‘doesn’t even pretend on the border’ meaning he does not tell us everything is good and well when every American sees it for him-or-herself on live TV.  As the border continues its implosion, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today and said of his border policies that they are ‘ridiculous.’  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, calls the lack of a sound policy, “Insane.”
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Russian President Vladimir Putin won’t be coming to New York City to attend the U.N. General Assembly.  No, he will get his message across via diplomatic channels.  Speaking of Russia, we learned today that the Federal Bureau of Investigation delayed helping the victims of the recent Russian hacking attacks.  The question is, “WHY?”  Next Portugal has granted the Afghan girls’ soccer team asylum as their home country continues to implode under Islamism.  Meanwhile, up in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- son of one of the Rolling Stones- manages to cling to power at the head of a minute minority drastically weakened by his ignorant policies.  To get things done, the communist PM will have to engage with other political parties.  This should be fun.
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.92 (2) AstraZeneca $59.13 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.53 (4) BioNTech $341.35 (5) Moderna $434.04.  Even as the FDA says there is NO need for Chi-Vi booster shots, Johnson & Johnson now claims that their new booster shot is ’94-percent effective.’  How can they claim this when their original shot was down in the mid-forties?  There has not been enough time for them even to know so we encourage everyone to avoid the Johnson & Johnson shots as if their lives depended upon it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.11 (2) General Dynamics: $191.19 (3) Boeing: $208.51 (4) Lockheed Martin: $336.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $345.14.

  80. 2021 Tuesday L: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.23 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $62.78 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $26.85.
  81. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I- Joe Biden delivered a canned speech to the United Nations today.  It would appear he took some of his anti-senility medicine, some of son Hunter’s crack as he was able to get through it without completely breaking down.  He called on world leaders to ‘pull together to solve global problems’ all the while giving them the nod-nod, wink-wink to send Third World castoffs to invade the United States.  Speaking of feeble Joe, a new poll shows that 62-percent of Iowans think that Joe is doing a horrible job.  Add to that the fact that the House Dems are seeking to limit the poor old fool’s presidential powers.  You know, the Dems would love to transform the presidency into a prime ministerial gig.
  82. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joy of joys!  The White House is rolling a new plan with which to combat homelessness.  Wow.  Meanwhile, as the various multi-trillion bills continue bumping up against the deadlines, the House Dems throw Joe Biden a bone by passing a stopgap spending bill that will keep the American government open until December 01, 2021.  Wow.   In other shocking news, the House Dems stripped funding from the bills they are trying to shove through to Joe Biden’s desk that will go to helping Israel protect itself with the Iron Dome missile defense system.
  83. 2021 Tuesday O: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- A Customs and Border Patrol officer who attended the Justice for January 6 rally won’t be charged.  Still, Rep. Adam “Bug Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, says the committee charged with ‘investigating’ the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, could possibly go directly to sending out subpoenas which means they want to tarnish the reputations of many, patriotic Americans while continuing to vilify President Donald J. Trump.  Oooh, scary, “Bug Eyes.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Well-known government apparatchik and professor, Anthony Codevilla, died today at age 78.  He is best remembered over his strenuous objections to the life sentence imposed on Jonathan Pollard, the man who handed classified intelligence over to U.S. ally, Israel.  Pollard eventually was released on parole in 2015 and after fulfilling the obligations imposed upon him, he emigrated to Israel.
  85. 2021 Tuesday Q: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1696 what with a $x million jackpot on the line: 36, 41, 45, 51, 56, and Mega 13.  Out of 150,280 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,952 apiece.  In Washington state where Chef Vladdie lives, one person got all five numbers and the Mega for a prize of $432,000,000.
  86. 2022 Wednesday: Friends, whenever we call the Chi-Coms out our numbers tend to suffer but I am going to continue with my thoughts anyway on the outcome of a Chi-Com invasion of Taiwan.  Most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM tend to believe that Taiwan- FREE CHINA- is an undeclared nuclear power and why not?  Back on September 22, 1979, which is tomorrow, a U.S. satellite detected a double flash in the South Atlantic well below South Africa.  Most surmise it was a nuclear weapons test either by South Africa or Israel or possibly a joint operation.  We, however, believe Taiwan was the nation conducting the test and much evidence points in that direction.  It would make sense that a technologically superior Taiwan was working at building a clandestine nuclear weapons program because at some point in the future, the Chi-Coms would come-a-calling being the bullies that they are.  We suspect any approaching invasion fleet would find itself in deep trouble if underwater nukes were detonated several yards beneath the flotilla.  Virtually every vessel, submarine, and troop transport in the area would be swamped with tsunamis the likes of which the world has never witnessed.  Aircraft carriers, warships, transports, virtually an entire fleet would disappear along with every soldier, sailor, marine, and airman as did the Mongol fleet that disappeared in a massive tsunami while attempting to invade Japan centuries ago.  This would be enough to cause Xi Jinping and his cronies to be strung up in the streets and who knows?  Perhaps freedom would return to the mainland and peace in Asia ensue?  Sure, at some point the world needs to obliterate that overweight hog, Kim Jong-Un but that little POS is a piker compared to Chairman Xi, the wannabe world dictator.  Let me know your mind- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick delivered its next studio album- “Standing on the Edge”- on July 19, 1985.  The album featured their original producer Jack Douglas back at the control panel.  Once again, the band delivered a spirited group of rockers and of course their pop-ballads.  “Tonight, It’s You” received a great deal of airplay and is among the best tunes the band has ever done.  The lineup remains Robin Zander (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and Jon Brant (bass, backing vocals).  Joining the Illinois-based rockers is Mark Radice on keyboards.  We hope everyone will seek this album out at their favorite site for the absolute best in music because let’s face it: the AICPENDBLOG.COM offers nothing but the best in music.  You won’t find f**king Maroon 5, you won’t find twerking whores, you won’t find has-been lesbians, and you won’t find young men who aren’t sure as to whether they are men or chicks.  It is what it is and we thank you for joining us here daily.

  62. 2012 Monday: After a wave of violence engulfed Iraq yesterday, a suicide bombing in Kunduz, Afghanistan, claims the lives of at least 16 people and injures loads more.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, teachers walk out on strike leaving 350,000 students in dire need of being educated.  Oh, well, gives them more time to shoot one another in unnecessary violence.   Mayor Rahm Emanuel, where are you?
  63. 2013 Tuesday: In the Arctic Ocean, a mishap sends a Canadian Coast Guard helicopter plummeting, killing three of its crew.

  66. 2016 Saturday: Ahead of yet another failed ceasefire in Syria, concentrated airstrikes in the country kill dozens in rebel-held areas.  Meanwhile, an earthquake in Tanzania kills at least 11 people and injures numerous others.  Finally, French authorities announce they are going to launch an investigation into a woman identified ONLY as Ornella G. on charges of possible terrorism as she was found with a car loaded with cooking gas containers near the Notre Dame Cathedral- it’s interesting to note that on April 15, 2019, mysterious fires broke out in the famed cathedral destroying much of it.  On this incident, authorities remain mum.

  68. 2018 Monday: The secretary-general of the United Nations- Antonio Guterres- calls for an immediate summit on climate change, emphatically telling the General Assembly that ‘climate change is moving faster than we are.’  Follow the science, people: the Sun is the sole generator of ‘climate change’ across the Solar System on every planet that contains a ‘climate.’  Solar winds, solar flares, and sunspots are the main drivers behind whether it’s hotter or cooler so relax.  We can, of course, contend with pollution which, we should but stop scaring everyone. [x]   Elsewhere, California- another lunatic locale- passes a bill that will commit the state to carbon-free energy by 2045.  Two years later, the state is suffering rolling brown-and-blackouts and Sacramento has NO CLUE as what to do- that’s what you get for shutting down the state’s last nuclear power plant in El Diablo Canyon with NOTHING to take its place!
  69. 2019 Tuesday: After being crossed one too many times, President Donald J. Trump hands his third national security advisor John Bolton his walking papers.  We have no clue as to what happened to Mr. Bolton, he seemed to be a normal guy at one time whereas now, we see him for the conniving RINO he is, and a man determined to go to war with Iran whatever it takes and whatever the cost.  Didn’t you learn from Iraq, John?  Good riddance.
  70. 2020 Thursday:  Tonight, the NFL season kicks off in Kansas City where the 2020 Superbowl winners the Chiefs will do battle with the visiting Houston Texans.  No one is participating an exciting season what with all the promised Black Lives Matter protests.  Our view: we don’t care, we won’t be watching.  Elsewhere, last week, first-time jobless benefits claims hit 884 thousand.   As for the economy, we learn that for the 2nd quarter consumer spending was down 34.1-percent.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announced his list of potential SCOTUS nominees in his second term yesterday.  Here are the potential nominees: (1) Bridget Bade, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals; (2) Daniel Cameron, 51st Kentucky state AG; (3) Sen.

  71. 2020 Thursday A: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says that ‘Joe Biden is going to make a great president’ and that in eight weeks, the Senate will be in the hands of the Democrats and the numbers of Dems in the House will be insurmountable.  The speaker’s Aricept® must be working really well today for her to express such confidence but when 42-percent of likely black voters say they are going to vote for President Trump, the Democratic Party’s house is ablaze.  Keep being confident, Madam Speaker, going to be fun seeing what you have to say on November 4.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden has NO campaign events today after President Donald J. Trump blasted the old bigot for using a teleprompter to answer scripted questions.  Ai-yi-yi!  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he appeared before a massive crowd in Michigan today.  Stunning!

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 358,559 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 45,519 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xviii]        
  80. 2021 Friday 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 dropped to $4.395 per gallon, $3.005 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.880 in Washington state. [xix]    Let us look at one other location- Arkansas: $2.848.  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- Yemen: $6.415 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,746,035,441,578 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after All Others, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Japan with $1,251,000,000 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.
  81. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 170 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 77 since her singular visit to the slowest section of the border.  What a job.  Next, here are the numbers of illegal aliens in the country as well as what they are costing us, cost first: $517,985,920 is the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders for just this day.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the illegal aliens for the year to date: $276,682,440,704.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed into the country this year: 2,835,773.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the total numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States: 36,835,772.  The news reported today that a new illegal alien caravan consisting of 14,000 Haitians, Cubans, and West Africans is forming up in Colombia waiting to cross into Panama.  Sounds like a job for napalm.  (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).
  82. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Vatican rejects Israeli criticism concerning Pope Francis’ ignorant comments on Jewish law.  Elsewhere, Australia- rapidly becoming a corrupt, criminal state is banning Ivermectin for off-label use in combatting the Dink-a-Link Fever.  What is wrong with these idiots in Australia?  Answer: just look at the ‘follow the money’ segments.  Speaking of overseas, as cases of the Delta variant skyrocket in Britain thanks to the Chi-Coms keeping this pandemic ongoing and causing problems, their economy is collapsing into the crapper.
  83. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– After Joe Biden giving Vladimir Putin the nod several months back, the Russians announce the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from the Baltic to Germany and says that if Ukraine wants the money to keep flowing, they had better begin showing Moscow some good will.  Speaking of the Russkies, they are accusing the United States of interfering in THEIR elections.  Wow.  Go figure.
  84. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Sadly for the Joe Biden regime, the creators of the COVID-19 booster shots say there may be NO need for them.  We knew that.  Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration official says the FDA is hopeful that kids under age 12 will soon be able to get COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots which will generate billions more dollars that will find their ways into the pockets of Deep State apparatchiks and elected officials.  Ah, the classic money-go-round is alive and well.
  85. 2021 Friday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Restrictions imposed by dictator Joe are being met with growing resistance.  Governors Greg Abbott, R-TX, and Ron DeSantis, R-FL, vow to fight tooth and nail against the unconstitutional edicts pouring out of the White House like fecal matter from a duck’s ass.  Florida and Texas are not the only two states fighting back against this senile dictator.  Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, South Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia are and by next Wednesday, California should be joining them in combatting this un-American, pro-communist regime.  We look for more states to climb aboard.  Joe Biden is slamming these brave governors as being ‘cavalier.’  Sadly, for the Biden regime, an appeals court has reinstated “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ ban on mask mandates in the Sunshine State’s schools.  Masks are optional and teachers’ unions need to STFU.
  86. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II– Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Unified School District is taking heat over their bogus Chi-Vi vaccine mandate requiring ALL students aged 12 and up to undergo vaccination whether they or their parents want them to or not.  American people, RESIST.  These people are using the pandemic to alter the way Americans live beyond the point of repair and we are NOT going to permit them to do this.  RESIST!
  87. 2021 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $45.59 (2) AstraZeneca $56.26 (3) Johnson & Johnson $166.97 (4) BioNTech $349.19 (5) Moderna $449.38.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $58.83 (3) Johnson & Johnson $175.04 (4) BioNTech $334.30 (5) Moderna $416.70.  We speculate the reason for the drop in some of the prices between this week and last week is that people are growing warier of the vaccines by the minute.  Hence, the push for more vaccines and more mandates.
  88. 2021 Friday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.00 (2) General Dynamics: $201.60 (3) Boeing: $210.30 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.88 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $354.10.  Here is what these stocks were worth a week ago today: (1) Raytheon: $83.65 (2) General Dynamics: $202.46 (3) Boeing: $218.17 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.00 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $365.93.
  89. 2021 Friday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.49 (3) Honeywell: $222.37 (4) 3M: $184.55 (5) Teijen: $1,666.00.  These companies are making money hand over fist.  We will keep you posted.
  90. 2021 Friday O: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.90 (2) Maple Leaf Farms-Tofurkey: $21.42.  This is the next big push.  We will continue developing it but the ‘meat is evil’ crowd is going to continue pushing for meatless meat which is not right.  We are drawing ever closer to Soylent Green-like sustenance.
  91. 2021 Friday P: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump released a new ad commemorating the jihadist terrorist attacks on New York City, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Thank you, Mr. President, thank you.   Next, President Trump also said that the ‘downside of a 2024 run for the White House is that he would be saving CNN.’
  92. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen to 39-percent with 49-percent disapproval and yet the pro-Beijing POS continues forging ahead with his plan to communize the United States.  Meanwhile, as the Biden regime continues waging war on ALL Trump appointees remaining in the government, Sean Spicer says it’s ‘frankly insulting’ to have his (military) board service questioned.’  The Biden regime does NOT want any Trump appointees left anywhere in government.  That is Barack Hussein Obama for you. 
  93. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Mob mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that- get this- the Taliban is ‘businesslike and professional.’  In other stupid regime news, Joe Biden called his boss in Beijing- Xi Jinping- so the two dictators could set some parameters, so the two nations don’t come into conflict (especially when the Chi-Coms begin the invasion of Taiwan).
  94. : Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is defending the mass resettlement of Afghan refugees across the United States even as a growing pandemic of measles is breaking out among them.  The GOP is demanding answers on the numbers, the locations, and the vetting of all these ‘refugees.’  Silence is all they get in answer.  Meanwhile, White House Chief of Staff- and Obama stooge- Ron Klain is receiving loads of blowback for an unwise retweet related to the Chi-Com virus vaccines.  The tweet said that everything the Biden regime is doing related to the China virus is the ultimate work-around.  Lastly, the Biden regime is appealing a recent court ruling against DACA.
  95. 2021 Friday T: Political News I– Rep. Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today by saying his ‘COVID-19 mandates are merely a cover for his disaster in Afghanistan and the calamity on the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Next, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer warned Democrats calling for him to retire that ‘what goes around comes around.’  Ouch.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams says that ‘Joe Biden has painted people- and NOT the Chi-Vi- as the enemy.’  (Note- Joe is good at doing this, he blames everyone else for his own lies, ineptitude, and mistakes). 
  96. 2021 Friday U: Political News II– Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-FL 7th congressional district, says there is NO way she can vote for the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bull-crap.  Good for you.   Next, former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer is nudging her former colleague, Senator Dianne Feinstein, DS-CA, to retire.  Here is what WE think: the Dems know that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is going down in the recall election next week and if Di-Fi would like to step down NOW, “Nazi” Newsom could then appoint himself U.S. senator prior to the end of the day on Tuesday.  Many have sought to encourage Di-Fi to retire before, but she always waves them off.  Will she continue doing so or will the senile old battle ax submit to the leftist mob?
  97. 2021 Friday V: Political News III– Andrew Yang- growing increasingly disillusioned with the Democratic Party- is forging ahead with the formation of a new political party.  Good for you.  In other news, Arizona has sold its Unilever bonds following anti-Semite Ben and Jerry’s outrageous move to ban its ice cream from being sold in Israel because of what they call apartheid.  Screw Ben and Jerry, their ice cream has always sucked anyway.  Tillamook, now that is ice cream of which to be proud.   In other news, as U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken instructs State Department officials in the aftermath of the Afghanistan implosion to ‘look around the corner’ (whatever that means), Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, says the numbers of U.S. passport holders remaining in Afghanistan far outnumbers what the Biden regime claims.  This story of abandonment of U.S. citizens is NOT going away no matter how many mandates old Joe whips out of his backside.
  98. 2021 Friday W: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1693 what with a $368 million jackpot on the line: 20, 32, 35, 47, 64, and Mega 18.  Out of 110,398 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $30,055.
  99. 2022 Saturday: Observation of the Day-  The only reason WHY Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom survived his recall last year is because of voter apathy, normal Democratic Party shenanigans, and the failure of the Republican National Committee getting behind the best candidate, giving him or her the necessary cash, and pushing him or her across the finish line.  California is NOT a BLUE state, all one need do is to look at the county election maps across the state and to see that they are almost all RED.  Add to that the fact that no one likes Gavin Newsom- including most Democrats- and we could easily have dumped this worthless POS.  Ah, well, while he’s warning Californians to avoid using ENERGY during the hottest portions of the day all the while wearing a fleece jacket and cap tells you that this man is little more than a pompous nimrod who is extremely vulnerable IF ONLY, we can get voters out to throw him out of office in November.  Singlehandedly, he has driven our state from being the best in the nation to the absolute worst with high power costs- when you can get it- high housing costs (millions of illegal aliens are getting free apartments which kills it for everyone else), high fuel costs, high food costs, crumbling infrastructure, and the wasting of resources rather than husbanding them.  We have plans to create more water storage and canals with which to move excess water about the state but oh, no, the fresh water flows out to sea to protect an invasive species of fish.  This November, we must turn everyone out and vote this POS and all his cronies out of office.  Ronna McDaniel, are YOU going to help us or are you going to continue ignoring the people of California crying out for deliverance from this Jacobin POS?  Let me know what you think- Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

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

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

[iii] Not sure as to when the AICPENDBLOG.COM will promote the music of the Aerosmith but when we do, you will also see the music of Blondie and Talking Heads shared as well.  Please, keep your eyes open for the day this magnificent event occurs.

[iv] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

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

[vi] We look forward to doing the music of Willie Dixon along with other great bluesmen of the era like Muddy Waters, and all the rest of the great voices of America that made the music of our country what it is.

[vii] When we return to promoting American bands, Cheap Trick will be towards the top so please stay alert.  You won’t want to miss them.

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

[ix] The French are under numerous terrorist threats and yet, they won’t discuss them out of fear of offending the massive Muslim population the dimwits have allowed to overrun their country.  Round them up and deport them back to whence they came.

[x] Any college geography class will drive this point home.

243. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2022

As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November. I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters. When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM! INSURRECTIONISTS! REVOLUTIONARIES! WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”

Trump for the left-wing violence destroying America’s largest Democrat-controlled cities.  What a laugh.  Meanwhile, Steve Bannon, President Donald J. Trump’s former political advisor had his first day in court with three of his fellow sycophants and pled ‘not guilty’ to charges the quartet defrauded donors into providing money to help build the wall along our border with Mexico.  Elsewhere, the D.C.

  66. 2020 Monday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 25,051,178 confirmed cases, +212,258, 843,586 confirmed deaths, +3,335, and 16,451,018 confirmed recoveries, +142,323.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,081,372 confirmed cases, UP by 23,852 new cases, 185,870 confirmed deaths, UP by 333 new deaths, and 3,202,457 confirmed recoveries, UP by 6,091 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 699,909 confirmed cases, 12,905 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. 
  67. 2020 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics- here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,339 confirmed cases, 63 confirmed deaths, and 2,520 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 74,320 confirmed cases, 1,905 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  NOTE: COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death in the United States.  The estimated hit to U.S. tourism and travel industries as of today rests at $51.5 billion.  The Chi-Coms have much to make restitution.   
  68. 2020 Monday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,430.05, DOWN 223.82 points (-0.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,775.46, UP 79.82 points (+0.68%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,500.31, DOWN 7.70 points (-0.22%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,973.90 per troy oz., DOWN -4.70 (-0.24%), SILVER is at $28.24 per troy oz., DOWN -0.202 (-0.71%), PLATINUM $937.90 per troy oz. DOWN -0.90 (-0.10%), and COPPER is at $3.05 # -0.01 (-0.33%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.82, UP +0.21 (+0.49%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.85 Chi-Com yuan.  In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  69. 2020 Monday D: Today, history occurred as El Al Flight 971 lifted off from Jerusalem and three-and-a-half hours later touched down in the United Arab Emirates, the first flight ever to do so.  The aircraft carried loads of dignitaries and the underside of the jetliner bristled with anti-missile defenses.  This is a momentous day for the entire world although the Palestinians continue running amok in the Gaza Strip, trying to initiate yet another war with the world’s sole Jewish state.  Shame on them.
  70. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 218,540,994 confirmed cases, +674,190, 4,533,609 confirmed deaths, +10,669 and 195,365,126 confirmed recoveries, +652,872.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 40,114,099 confirmed cases, UP 168,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 657,910 confirmed deaths, UP 1,533, [xii] and 31,020,612 confirmed recoveries, UP 80,403.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 339,222 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 64,886 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  72. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,366,577 confirmed cases, 65,885 confirmed deaths, and 2,284,613 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,295,993 confirmed cases, 44,561 confirmed deaths, and 2,342,929 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 63,502 confirmed cases, 589 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 565,013 confirmed cases, 6,643 confirmed deaths, and 246,247 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., District of Columbia: they have 55,431 confirmed cases, 1,160 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [xiv]   That’s Mayor Muriel “Bow-wow” Bowser for you- nothing more than a political hack.
  73. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,066,352 confirmed cases, 7,043 confirmed deaths, and 975,767 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Antigua and Barbuda, 197th country on the list: 1,715 cases of the virus, 34 confirmed deaths and 1,348 confirmed recoveries.

[xix]        
  75. 2021 Tuesday 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 $4.398 per gallon, $2.983 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.898 in Washington state. [xx]    Let us look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.994.  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- Seychelles: $5.950 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,707,520,165,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  76. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Following on the heels of the last flight of Americans out of Hamid Karzai International Airport today, the Taliban moved in quickly upon our heels dressed in U.S. camo and using U.S. weapons.  We have left behind perhaps 15,000-20,000 Americans while the bogus regime inhabiting the White House claims the numbers are closer to 100 to 200.  Bulls**t.  Pentagon spokesperson Admiral John Kirby says the U.S. ‘will use leverage to bring trapped Americans home.’  We also left behind all of our military dogs to suffer horrendous fates at the hands of the barbarous Mohammedans who also are going to door to door executing anyone they deem to be enemies or threats to their criminal regime.   What is becoming clearer by the moment is that even though the war is ‘now over,’ Joe Biden’s Afghan crisis is only just beginning.  Take for example, new video showing the Taliban escorting- openly- Osama bin Laden’s former security chief, Dr. Amin al-Haq, an al-Qaida thug.  And the Biden regime says there is NO al-Qaida in the Afghan boonies.  Finally, new reports suggest that during a phone call in June, neither slobbering Joe Biden or Afghan President Ashraf Ghani anticipated the sudden collapse of the country.
  77. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, with the usurper regime in the White House, everything is going to hell.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 160 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle on the southern border and Day No. 67 since her sole visit to th southern border.  What a loser.  Ah, well, the Cost this Day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens is $521,296,416.  Next, the cost of caring for this tsunami of Third World flesh is $265,726,853,120.  As for the numbers of illegal alien vermin who have crossed the southern border this year, here is the appalling figure for the numbers who managed to cross into the United States: 2,723,487.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens sucking away at the American taxpayers’ teat: 36,723,488.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- since the inception of this blog back in 2009, we believed the numbers of illegal alien vermin in the U.S. to have been between 35-50 million whereas now- 12 years later- we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport all of them.  NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Ireland announces that it will be dropping almost all COVID-19 restrictions in their country by October all the while Australia continues tightening the screws on its citizens.  The military goes door to door to check on whether its citizens are cowering behind their doors as well as checks on citizens’ individual QR codes to make sure they are following the government’s dictates.  WTF?  In another country seemingly freer than Australia, Vladimir Putin is approving special payments to military and law enforcement personnel ahead of upcoming elections (just like U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is doing for federal employees in America).
  79. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– In other foreign and overseas news, the People’s Republic of China has restricted young people under the age of 18 no more than 3 hours per week playing video games.  Beijing also shut down the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Chengdu, probably because it is pushing the LGBTQIA+ agenda which should get any organization closed down.
  80. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– In an effort to destroy “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, a ‘report’ suggests that death rates in the Sunshine State due to COVID-19 somehow are artificially low.  Elsewhere, another report says that Alaska and Utah have low COVID-19-related deaths.   Meanwhile, an Axios/Ipsos poll says that ‘it appears vaccine hesitancy is waning’ around the nation.  Uh, okay.  NO, no it’s not.
  81. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that he is ‘confident a judge will rule in favor of his ban on the required wearing of masks in Florida’s school systems.  Elsewhere, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, has been accused of violating New Mexico’s mask mandate on a recent visit to the Cactus State.  Liberal hypocrisy?  No, it couldn’t be.  Meanwhile, the Manhattan D.A. charges 15 in a fake COVID-19 vaccine passport scheme.
  82. 2021 Tuesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.07 (2) AstraZeneca $58.28 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.13 (4) BioNTech $329.19 (5) Moderna $376.69.  Follow the money.  Politicians and the Deep State are invested BIG TIME in vaccine manufacturers.
  83. 2021 Tuesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.76 (2) General Dynamics: $200.31 (3) Boeing: $219.50 (4) Lockheed Martin: $359.80 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.70.  Same as above, the Deep State and politicos are invested heavily in the dogs of war.
  84. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden News I– Early this morning, we were promised that faux president Joe Biden would give a statement on the debacle in Afghanistan to the American people.  When he did finally show up, he was agitated and angrier than ever.  The White House must have gotten some of son Hunter’s crack and had old Joe smoke a few bowls before he walked glassy eyed to the microphones and lit into the American people.  (Note- Joe, STFU about your son, Beau Biden, he did NOT die in combat, he was not shot, he was not blown up, and he was not maimed; no, he died from brain cancer from being around too many burn-pits in-country.  You cannot relate with anyone who has lost a loved one in combat.  Enough!).  The old fool also praised the success of the ‘airlift’ and the ‘end of the forever war.’  Speaking of this man’s failure, the Flag Officers 4 America- more than 87-plus former U.S. military officers- sent a letter to “Taliban Joe” Biden demanding the resignations of U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and political hack Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley over failing to advise Joe Biden of the disastrous consequences resulting from his baffling pull-out from Afghanistan.  (Note- Gen. Milley, being the POS that you are and an uneducated one, IF you ever wish someone to explain to you the truth behind the three-fifths clause, we would love to sit down and explain it to your stupid ass.  Also, you must pay heed as to what happens to ‘political generals,’ i.e., General Alfred Jodl and Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel at the end of World War II).  
  85. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News II– The father of a U.S. Marine killed in last Thursday’s terror attack at HKIA- Mark Schmitz- said that when he met Joe Biden at Dover when the bodies of his son and 12 others arrived home on U.S. soil, Mr. Biden ‘bristled’ when told to learn the stories of the dead.  Joe went on about son, Beau, and said little to nothing to comfort the grieving families and instead looked at his watch to see when he could return to the White House basement to watch reruns of “Dragnet” and “Murder She Wrote.”   Joe also claims he is committed to getting ‘the last 100-200 Americans out of Afghanistan.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Fox News had the balls to report today that during a press conference with FEMA regarding Hurricane Ida relief, when he called forward one of his senior advisers, former Rep. Cedric Richmond, the racist faux president referred to him as “BOY.”  Since Mr. Richmond happens to be black, one would think that the besotted old fool who claims to be president would have ignited a firestorm but oh, no, apparently not.  Here is what the senile codger said: “I’m here with my senior adviser and BOY who knows Louisiana very, very well, and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond.” [xxiii]
  87. : Joe Biden Regime News I– Ahead of a White House visit, the U.S. commits to $60 million in foreign aid to the Ukraine.  Next, U.S. State Department staffers are assailing Secretary Anthony Blinken over the need to terminate one of their own- Fritz Berggren who runs a website, bloodandfaith.com- where he blasts Jews, homos and trannys, and other left-wing riffraff.  Hey, staffers: stop sniveling.  You guys get away with all sorts of stuff so shut the hell up.  Elsewhere, Health and Human Services- HHS- says it’s going to open a division committed to combatting ‘climate change.’  Spare us the crap.
  88. 2021 Tuesday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– In other political news, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says- regarding the bogus January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots panel in the U.S. House of Representatives that is demanding BIG TECH to hand over all data related to the GOP and others who were there on that day- that ‘this is America and the people will remember’ if BIG TECH complies with the Democratic-Socialists’ requests. 
  89. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News I– Eric Trump told Newsmax today that the nation ‘demands a refund for the debacle in Afghanistan.’  We left billions of dollars in equipment there as well as billions of dollars more for the criminal regime currently inhabiting the country.   Next, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that Afghanistan is a ‘jaw-dropping, abysmal failure.’  Amen.  Moving on, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th CD, says that ‘Americans are now fending for themselves’ in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd CD, puts most of the blame for the Afghan debacle atop the shoulders of ‘Taliban Joe’ Biden, National Security Adviser Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan, and the increasingly pathetic, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Sell-Out” Blinken.  Finally, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th CD, says that ‘whenever the Biden regime sends Anthony Blinken to the microphone banks, it’s to LIE to the American people.’  Amen, Rep., amen.  Rep. Mast also has said that the ‘White House has doubled down on stupid with the Taliban.’  Finally, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says the “U.S. is going to fund terrorism against itself.”
  90. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News II– Anger continues to grow across the United States at CRT in the schools- what WE call truthfully ‘Criminal Race Theory’ and what the leftist scumbags label ‘Critical Race Theory.’  This crap is as evil as is Marxism and Nazism and must be destroyed.  Anyone promoting this crap must be stripped of their job and sent into the hinterlands to become reeducated.
  91. 2021 Tuesday U: Economic News– Thanks to the COVID-19 crisis, U.S. home prices during the month of June soared to their highest point in years.  (Note- the reason for higher prices is the scarcity thanks to big banks and Chinese companies snapping up homes in mass.  Not good.
  92. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– The murderer of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- received a sentence of life in prison today as well as having to pay restitution for his barbaric crime.  Execute him.  Another condemned murderer set to die on September 8, 2021, via lethal injection in Texas- 37-year-old John Henry Ramirez- is suing to have the right to have his pastor lay hands on him as he undergoes execution.
  93. 2021 Tuesday W: Social Media News– Another mother who lost her son at HKIA last week saw Instagram shutter account over emotional posts she shared following the death of her child.  When blasted for doing it, Instagram said ‘they made a mistake and had NO clue as to how such an outrageous incident occurred.’  Sure, uh-huh.  F— you.
  94. 2021 Tuesday X: Weather News I– Following Hurricane Ida slamming the gulf coast, thousands in Louisiana are facing weeks- if not months- of NO electricity.  We recall that when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, he had everything ready and waiting to rush in and begin the process of restoring power as soon as the storms passed.  What the hell is up with the Biden regime?
  95. 2021 Tuesday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1690 what with a $306 million jackpot on the line: 08, 14, 31, 58, 68, and Mega 15.  Out of 105,850 winning tickets, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,621.
  96. 2022 Wednesday: As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November.  I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters.  When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM!  INSURRECTIONISTS!  REVOLUTIONARIES!  WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”  It will allow the Biden White House to DECLARE MARTIAL LAW, LOCK DOWN THE ELECTION CYCLE, KEEP EVERYONE IN THEIR HOMES, AND FORCE THEM TO USE MAIL-IN BALLOTS which, we the Democratic Party OWN.  If everyone has to vote by mail, we are going to pull our irons out of the fire and save the election cycle.  IF we can’t get Trump voters to run amok, we will send our Antifa and BLM goons out into the streets, give them CSA and Nazi flags and have them run amok.  It’s a cinch. Trump will be indicted but will NEVER go to trial until October 2024 and we will win that election cycle, too.  Man, oh, man, are we smart.  This is the plan, it’s going to work, and Dems are going to WIN and WIN BIG.  Especially when our media spews the myth that the RED WAVE is dying, and the BLUE WAVE is going to crush EVERYONE.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0938 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Rancho Santa Margarita.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys is one to be expected: “The Beach Boys with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra” (June 08, 2018).  There are 17 tunes here featuring Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson along with Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Al Jardine, and David Marks.  Most every band that has survived- or whose record catalog has survived- has had remix albums with orchestras so why would the Beach Boys be any different?  While some criticize the album, others praise it which is what we do being the completists that we are.  Besides- if you’ve purchased everything else, why would you spurn this effort?  It does not cost that much so pick it up much like you would (or did) “Metamorphosis” or “Jamming with Edward” by the Rolling Stones.  We think you will enjoy but if not, perhaps your aging mother or father will.  After all, they are most likely Beach Boys fans.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

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

[iii] Shavers won the vacant Nevada state heavyweight title on September 28, 1971.  However, Earnie lost his two big-time title fights, the first to Muhammad Ali on September 29, 1977, via a 15-round unanimous decision.  He fought to win the WBA, WBC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight titles.  The second shot was against Larry Holmes, aka the Easton Assassin, on September 28, 1979.  Holmes held the WBC heavyweight title of the world.  Holmes beat Shavers via a TKO at the 2:00 minute mark of Round 11 in a scheduled 15-round heavyweight bout.  There would be no future shots at any of the belts.

[iv] We hope to begin promoting the music of Them and of Van Morrison at some point in the near future.  Please remain alert for the day when we do.

[v] We shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies beginning on Thursday, 25-November-2010 through Sunday, 02-January-2011.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy.

[vi] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Firefall sometime in 2026.  Please stay tuned.

[viii] We most definitely should have done Whitesnake back during the time we did the music of Deep Purple, Elf, Rainbow, Ian Gillan, Ian Gillan Band, Richie Blackmore, and the rest of that offering but we failed to do so.  However, when we get around to doing Poison, Mȍtley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and other of the HAIR bands sometime within the next 10 years.  As for the first grouping of bands, we shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.  The only problem, we did the lineup at the Google Blogger blog we had for 11 years and that cocksucker Sundar Pichai, a POS Pakistani jihadist shut us down.  He will get his when conservatism reclaims the nation in the greatest revival since the post-Civil War era.

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

[x] We began promoting the music of the Move- and of Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne- beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

[xi] More and more Americans now believe that President Barack Hussein Obama was the first phony president as it has become clearer that he was NOT born in the United States but in Kenya.  This would explain the actions of the Democrats back in 2009 when they began to go down the totalitarian roadway.  Look at them now.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Europe f**ked everything up when they began jimmying around with copyright laws but what the hell- it caused record companies to dig deep into their vaults and to then release archival material lest they lose the copyright.  Thus, today, we have the next live album from the Beach Boys- “Live in Chicago 1965”- released on December 06, 2016.  You get two shows for the price of one plus the rehearsals.  If you enjoyed the old Beach Boys album, “Beach Boys Concert”- which is a glorious live album for its day, you will most definitely enjoy this one.  We hope you will seek this one out and to make it part of your daily listening rotation- you will be glad you did.

233. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 21, 2022

2022 Sunday: Let us recap: when Donald J. Trump was running for office, the Obama-Biden Deep State targeted him. Once elected, it continued to target him and the targeting continued throughout his time in the White House. The Mueller investigation, two impeachments, the targeting of his friends, family, colleagues, and supporters. It appears that the cabal of Deep State apparatchiks and their approved elected politicians will continue this unfair targeting far into the future.

  54. 2019 Wednesday:  President Donald Trump cancels his upcoming state visit to Denmark after labeling Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen ‘nasty’ for laughing at his suggestion the United States ‘buy Greenland.’  Folks, buying Greenland would be akin to buying Alaska, the mineral resources are underdeveloped as well as the fact that it would also put a damper on Russian expansion north of the Arctic Circle.  The Russians claim almost everything around the North Pole as theirs to which, we should give them a strong brushback.  BUY GREENLAND!
  55. 2020 Friday: USPS Postmaster General Louis Dejoy testified before the U.S. Senate today, albeit remotely, answering questions about changes occurring in the U.S. Postal Service.  Democrats were rude as is the norm, demanding “YES” or “NO” answers to weighty questions, basically accusing the man of trying to steal the election in November.  Problem for the Democrats is this: THEY are the ones trying to steal the election and always accuse others of what they themselves are doing.  It never fails.  Meanwhile, actress Lori Loughlin gets two months in prison for the college admissions scandal while hubby, Mossimo Giannuli gets five months.  Liberals are crying saying Crystal Mason, black mother of three, got five years in prison for voting when she was a felon and failed to know it was illegal for her to vote.  Folks, felons understand when they leave prison they cannot own guns, practice law, serve on juries, or vote so stop with the sniveling already, Robert B. Reich, Charlotte Clymer, and all the rest of the leftist mob.  It is what the f**k it is. Granted, Loughlin and Giannuli should have gotten two years and five years respectively but remember, liberals, they are members of YOUR tribe so why are you bitching?
  56. 2020 Friday A: Democrats are celebrating “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s acceptance speech the previous night at the Democratic National Convention.  What is clear is that the organizers presented a ‘canned speech,’ and one can only imagine the number of takes required to make it appear seamless.  IF Joe truly gave the speech live and in one take, then he should be willing to debate at least four times.  What does he have to lose, Dems, he is so flipping brilliant, so get him out there and on the stump?  (Note- we still believe something will befall him and his wife prior to Election Day.  The Dems will then use emotions to elect whomever their ticket ends up becoming.  We shall see).
  57. 2020 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 22,589,017 confirmed cases, UP by 73,804 cases, 792,475 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,650 deaths, and 14,457,309 confirmed recoveries, UP by 76,261 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,551,793 confirmed cases, UP by 44,864 new cases, 173,490 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,074 new deaths, and 2,852,221 confirmed recoveries, UNKNOWN because there is no report of new recoveries.  (For some reason, the reportage of U.S. statistics has stagnated, so we have to look everywhere across the Internet seeking current figures.  Could it be…politics?).
  58. 2020 Friday 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: 650,336 confirmed cases, UP 5,585 cases, 11,821 confirmed deaths, UP by 135, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,844 confirmed cases, UP by 235 (according to yesterday) forty-five confirmed deaths, UP by three, and 1,716 confirmed recoveries, UP by fifty-four.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 69,389 confirmed cases, UP by 223, 1,837 confirmed deaths, UP by five, but like California, the halfwit governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us look at one other state we have not looked at before: South Carolina: the state claims 110,378 confirmed cases, 2,459 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Sad
  59. 2020 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals- here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,930.33, UP 190.60 points (+0.69%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,311.80, UP 46.85 points (+0.42%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,397.16, UP 11.65 points (+0.34%).  Price of GOLD: $1,947.40 per troy oz., +0.40 (+0.02%).  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.88 per troy oz., +0.153 (+0.57%).  Price of PLATINUM: $926.30 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.02%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.93 per #, +0.0009 (+0.31%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $42.25, -0.09 (-0.21%).  Today, one dollar U.S. = 6.92 PRC yuan while one dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
  60. 2020 Friday E: In Portland, Oregon, the POS scumbag who shocked the civilized world with his unprovoked violent assault on passing motorist Adam Haner fell into the hands of the cops.  This past Sunday night, Marquise Love beat Mr. Haner senseless and after doing so delivered a violent roundhouse kick to the prone man’s head which caused an intense manhunt for Mr. Love.  The cowardly POS turned himself into the cops lest they shoot him like the dog he is.  These violent scumbags need eradication as though they were wild rabid dogs, we wholeheartedly urge law enforcement to go after the Antifa Brown Shirts and the Black Lives Matter thugs and begin taking them OUT.  A law-based, constitutional republic cannot permit Marxist-inspired anarchy to destroy American cities.  If retribution cannot be obtained legally, then star chambers must undergo establishment for the good of the people.  
  61. 2020 Friday F: Alexei Navalny, the anti-Vladimir Putin critic poisoned earlier in the week by suspected Putin operatives finally receives permission from Moscow for German paramedics to airlift him to Berlin for medical treatment.  Once again, Putin has let everyone know it was HIM who did this because poisoning is his mode of silencing critics.  Speaking of Russians, U.S. law enforcement agents arrested former U.S. Army Green Beret, 45-year-old Peter Rafael Dziubinski Debbins on charges that he has been spying for the GRU since December 1996 to January 2011.  Shame on you, you POS.
  62. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 212,161,905 confirmed cases, +613,209, 4,436,893 confirmed deaths, +20,670 and 189,792,895 confirmed recoveries, +493,461.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 38,519,294 confirmed cases, UP 120,698 from yesterday’s reporting, 644,840 confirmed deaths, UP 728, [v] and 30,463,056 confirmed recoveries, UP 23,817.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vi]  
  63. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 326,252 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 77,826 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[vii]   
  65. 2021 Saturday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 985,341 confirmed cases, 6,775 confirmed deaths, and 911,013 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Monaco, 186th country on the list: 3,129 cases of the virus, 33 confirmed deaths and 2,990 confirmed recoveries. [viii]     
  66. 2021 Saturday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,120.08, UP 225.96 points (+0.65%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,714.66, UP 172.88 points (+1.19%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,441.67, UP 35.87 points (+0.81%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.86 per barrel, -0.28 (-0.45%).  The price of GOLD is $1,782.60 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $22.97 per troy ounce, -0.14 (-0.61%).  The price of PLATINUM is $991.20 per troy oz, -3.00 (-0.30%) while the price of COPPER is $4.15 per pound, +0.01 (+0.19%).

  67. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $2.985 in Florida, $4.086 in Hawaii, and $3.908 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let us look at one other location- Oregon: $3.801.  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- Poland: $5.604 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,669,087,460,982 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  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 Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia with $136 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Saturday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– A new report says that back in June, senile Joe Biden told U.S. allies that Kabul could hold out for the foreseeable future.  It took the Taliban less than a week to overrun the country, arrive at the gates of Kabul, and then infest the city.   Joe Biden is also considering demanding public airlines to begin flying Afghan refugees wherever the government decides to send them, FREE.  Meanwhile, the evacuation out of Kabul is becoming problematic as ISIS is descending on the airport.  God know what could happen next, especially when the U.S. embassy staff still on scene is warning Americans NOT to come to Kabul for evacuation.  WTF?
  69. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 150 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xvi] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 57 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $768,303,104.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $255,014,928,384.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,613,698.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,613,700.   (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).  Governor Doug Ducey, R-AZ, is extending the deployment of the Copper State’s National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border to help U.S. Border Patrol combat the invasion of illegal aliens.
  70. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The people of Australia are growing angrier with their government over the harsh lockdown measures imposed on the population by a tyrannical regime over COVID-19.  Protesters clashed with law enforcement in two of the country’s biggest cities.  Good for you, people, good for you.
  71. 2021 Saturday I: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– As various left-wing-controlled school districts in the Sunshine State continue trying to buck NO MASK MANDATE in the state’s schools, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis gives the schools an ultimatum: respect the ban or lose funding.  In other news, comedic hack Seth Meyers says the “GOP is lying about masks.”  Seth: The Red States are leading the way in recovering from the COVID crisis so STFU.  Elsewhere, the University of Virginia has disenrolled 238 students who have refused to get the Chi-Com Virus vaccines.  Good for the students.
  72. 2021 Saturday J: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump endorsed former Silver State Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Republican, for U.S. senator.  Meanwhile, President Trump held a massive rally in Cullman, Alabama, to promote Rep. Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, is his bid for the open U.S. Senate seat when Senator Richard Shelby retires next year.  At least 15,000-20,000 people were inside and another 20,000-to-30,000 were outside.  Amazing.  President Trump also said that Joe Biden owes the American people an apology for the unnecessary chaos occurring in Afghanistan.  
  73. 2021 Saturday K: Joe Biden News I– Since “Chi-Com Joe” Biden is taking so much heat for the disaster occurring in Afghanistan, the senile regime leader cancels his trip home to Delaware for the weekend which means, next week, he will be combative, disrespectful, and unstable.  Going to be interesting to watch.   Speaking of the feeble dictator, his poll numbers continue tanking as new cases of the Wuhan Virus Crisis continue rising.
  74. 2021 Saturday L: Political News I– Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, is sponsoring a bill with which to convene hearings on the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Meanwhile, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says the brief released by the Capitol Hill Police Department is a ‘panic, manic legal defense of unbridled secrecy surrounding the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.’  According to Mr. Fitton, there was a lot of communications going back and forth between U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district and higher-ups in the Capitol Hill Police Department.  Friends, we can make a fairly good guess as to what was going on and all of it was to launch a FALSE FLAG OPERATION to try to destroy President Donald J. Trump.  WE know.
  75. 2021 Saturday M: Political News II– The Chamber of Commerce is running ads for moderate Democrats fighting to separate the ‘infrastructure bill’ from the ‘budget reconciliation’ BS bill House leader “Mumbles” Pelosi is fighting to shove through to bankrupt the country.  In other BS news, Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy signed a bill that preventing New Jersey state prisons from contracting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  What a POS.  Next, the U.S. State Department reports that it has been hit by a cyberattack.  Why are we not surprised?  Finally, former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan says ‘it’s not surprising that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘missing’ on Afghanistan.
  76. 2021 Saturday N: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court- ever fearful of the Biden regime packing the body- has put a hold on lower court rulings to reinstate the “Remain in Mexico” policy for the millions of illegal aliens swamping the country all requesting ‘asylum.’
  77. 2021 Saturday O: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Radio talk show host Phil Valentine lost his battle with COVID-19 today.  When the famed conservative came down with the ‘VID, liberals laughed and mocked him because he believed in personal choice when it came to wearing masks and/or getting the vaccine.  They are probably doing the jig now.  God bless you, Mr. Valentine.  Elsewhere, famed country music performer Tom T. Hall is dead at age 85.  Next, the Reverend Jesse Jackson and his wife entered the hospital today as both tested positive for the Kung Flu.
  78. 2021 Saturday P: New York State News– Soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov declared a state of emergency today as Hurricane Henri approaches the region.  Reporters asked the loser as to WHY he didn’t hand off to Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul who will become the first female governor of the Empire State on Tuesday?  The ‘governor’ hemmed and hawed as to how he was doing ‘his duty.’  Loser, just go.  NOW.
  79. 2021 Saturday Q: Texas State News– The Texas voting laws now are on the fast track since the fugitive Democrats returned home after 33 days in Washington, D.C.  They fled there to stop the necessary quorum from being formed and only came home when the courts said that Texas law enforcement authorities could arrest them.
  80. 2021 Saturday R: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3588 what with a $10 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 12, 22, 36, 39, 59, and Mega 04.  Out of 91,589 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had five numbers BUT NO Mega for a prize of $33,286.  The winning ticket was sold at Texas Liquor in National City, CA 91950.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #874 with a jackpot of $290 million up for grabs: 16, 28, 36, 39, 59, and Powerball 04.  Out of 101,268 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR plus the Powerball for a prize of $18,305 apiece.
  81. 2022 Sunday: Let us recap: when Donald J. Trump was running in office, the Obama-Biden Deep State targeted him.  Once elected, it continued to target him and the targeting continued throughout his time in office.  The Mueller investigation, two impeachments, the targeting of his friends, family, colleagues, and supporters.  It appears that the cabal of Deep State apparatchiks and their approved elected politicians will continue this unfair targeting far into the future.  The latest story to unfold is that the Joestapo raid targeting Mar-a-Lago was seeking information related to Crossfire Hurricane, to appropriate it and then to destroy it so that evidence of the corruption that set it in motion can never and will never come to light.  This should tell us there’s fear amongst the Deep State that divine judgment is on the horizon, which means they will become even more dangerous in their death throes.  Be aware.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

186. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 05, 2022

1971 Monday: President Richard M. Nixon certified the 26th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which lowered the minimum voting age from 21 to 18. In 2019, the Democrats want to lower the age to 14 and to extend voting rights to felons in prison. It never stops. Many believe that voting should return to what the Founders wanted, ONLY people owning property had the right to vote. When you bestow voting on the masses, they will never vote for anything or anyone who does not represent their selfish interests like Democrats with trannys, illegal aliens, and criminal felons.

  51.  2014 Saturday:  Argentina and the Netherlands join Brazil and Germany as World Cup semifinalists.
  52. 2015 Sunday: Greek voters say “NO” to austerity measures after missing a $1.6 billion bailout payment several days earlier leaving the IMF, the EU, and the European Central Bank to consider whether to expel the nation from their ranks.
  53. 2016 Tuesday:  Pompous, arrogant ass FBI Director James “The Saint” Comey strode to the microphones today to lay out a case for prosecuting former U.S. Secretary of State and current Democratic candidate for the 2016 Presidential Election.  In doing so, he raises the hopes among the American people that she will finally pay the price for being a corrupt POS but Comey ends his presentation on whether she should or not be charged over her ‘careless handling of her emails’ by saying he ‘doesn’t recommend prosecution’ which is not his decision to make but that of the U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch who remained mum.
  54. 2017 Wednesday: Numbers for the number of dead and wounded in Chicago over the Fourth of July weekend are appalling: 101 shot with at least 15 dead and yet NO one wants to address the elephant in the room, the fact that this is Black on Black genocide.  The reason these and other horrifying statistics are swept under the rug is because Democrats have been in control since the early 1930s.  WTF!  Where is Black Lives Matter when you need the communist scum?  Nowhere to be found.   
  55. 2018 Thursday: James Alex Fields Jr. pleaded not guilty to federal hate crime charges in a car attack on a crowd of protesters opposing a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia., on August 12, 2017; a 32-year-old woman died and dozens suffered grievous injuries.  Fields later pleaded guilty to 29 federal hate crime charges under a plea deal in which the prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty. 
  56. 2019 Friday: Near Ridgecrest, California, in eastern Kern County, a second stronger earthquake hits the area, already hammered by one a couple of days earlier, coming in at 7.1 magnitude.   Elsewhere, UNESCO declares ancient Iraqi city of Babylon a World Heritage Site.
  57. 2020 Sunday: The Beijing Bat Flu, the one Xi Jinping sent to the rest of the world, continues trashing the world as the escapee from the Wuhan Institute of Virology continues taking names and calling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 11,304,534 confirmed cases, an increase of 211,352 cases, 531,659 confirmed deaths, an increase of 6,168 deaths, and 6,11,195 confirmed recoveries, an increase of 221,143.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 2,929,625 confirmed cases- +69,929, 131,948 confirmed deaths, +399, and 878,748 confirmed recoveries, +13,752.

  59. 2020 Sunday B: News reports out of Chicago- governed by the Democrats for the past 54 years- confirm at least 74 shootings with at least 14 fatalities including some young kids so where oh where are Black Lives Matter? [viii]  Don’t black lives in Chicago matter or is it a ‘selective concern’ for black lives when they can twist the situation to fit a political outcome?  President Donald J. Trump reached out to big city Democratic mayors willing to help them with their violence problems but of course, they called him a “RACIST” for asking.
  60. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 184,912,094 confirmed cases, +375,398, 4,000,309 confirmed deaths, +7,497 and 169,280,164 confirmed recoveries, +39,762.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,598,355 confirmed cases, UP 6,279 from yesterday’s reporting, 621,335 confirmed deaths, UP 42, [ix] and 29,280,164 confirmed recoveries, UP 183,346.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]  
  61. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 303,429 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 156,220 deaths  
  62. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,822,179 confirmed cases, 63,758 confirmed deaths, and 2,074,859 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,382,980 confirmed cases, 37,985 confirmed deaths, and 2,215,966 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 38,043 confirmed cases, 518 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 454,759 confirmed cases, 5,987 confirmed deaths, and 226,690 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Puerto Rico, home of AOC’s pobrecita abuelita: they have 275,320 confirmed cases, 2,552 confirmed deaths, and 121,227 confirmed recoveries. [xi]    
  63. 2021 Monday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 843,465 confirmed cases, 6,429 (DOWN) confirmed deaths, and 834,195 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Papua New Guinea, 139th country on the list: 17,098 cases of the virus, 173 confirmed deaths and 16,518 confirmed recoveries. [xii]

[xvi]        
  65. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.303 per gallon, $3.011 in Florida, $4.021 in Hawaii, and $3.801 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Tennessee: $2.881.  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- Gabon: $4.166 per U.S. Gallon. [xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,487,342,957,683 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after ALL OTHERS, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is we return to the top with Japan with $1,251,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position.
  66. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 104 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 10 since her photo op visit to El Paso where everything was choreographed for the gibbering jackal.  According to One America News, the numbers are astounding and remember- somehow, the Dems are blaming President Donald J. Trump for the utter fiasco unfolding along the southern border.  Here are their numbers for this horrendous holocaust of illegals invading our country: first, (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the vermin flowing in from around the world: $553,348,672.  Imagine this money going to Tunnel 2 Towers, to Wounded Warriors, to Disabled American Vets?  It would be life changing.  Next, (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of unwashed humanity seeking to rape the United States: $203,293,130,752.  Imagine this money going to help the American people recover from the disaster of the Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus f**king up the country?  It would be amazing.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegal aliens who have swarmed into the USA this year: 2,083,591.  Fourth and final, here is the number of fence-climbing, river-swimming, visa-overstaying illegals lurking within the fabric of the U.S.- and remember- this is a conservative estimate: 36,083,592.  (Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Folks, we created this blog back in 2009 and at that time, we estimated the numbers of illegals in the United States to be between 35-50 million whereas now, we estimate there are between 75-100 million of illegals sucking away at what belongs to the American people.  This is NOT right.
  67. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Taliban is ramping up its warnings that if NOT ALL foreign troops evacuate Afghanistan, they will be considered open targets of the criminal Islamist thugs.  Elsewhere, BIG TECH companies are threatening to leave Hong Kong due to new Chi-Com laws being imposed on them.   In other fascinating news, we learn today that Israel used autonomous drone swarms to locate targets in the Gaza Strip during their 11-day conflict earlier in the year.  The drones located the targets, and the Israelis neutralized the scumbags.  Excellent.   Meanwhile, Russian warplanes are conducting bombing runs in the Black Sea while NATO allies- mostly the U.S. and Great Britain- are conducting military exercises with Ukraine.  Vladimir Putin did say last week that he could have sunk the British warship sailing the waters and that ‘World War III would NOT occur.’  Okay, Vlad.  Remember- the U.S. and the U.K. saved your asses in World War II.  POS.
  68. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden News I– When drooling Joe Biden was asked about recent Chi-Com and Russian cyberattacks on the U.S., he fumbled through his notes looking for the answer given him via his handlers.  How embarrassing this loser is to the American people in particular and the Free World in general.  Loser with a capital ‘L.’  Speaking of the cyberattacks of which slobbering Joe Biden knows nothing, they are demanding $70 million to restore data to the companies they have hacked.
  69. 2021 Monday I: Political News I– Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st congressional district, is drawing heavy flak for having proclaimed “Black people still aren’t free in the United States.”  Says a woman elected to the U.S. Congress by the citizens (and illegal aliens, too) of her district.  Are people like “The Bitch” this stupid not to see the irony in what she has said?  Citizens of Missouri, vote this piece of human fecal matter out of office in November 2022.  Another left-wing loser, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd CD, displayed her stupidity when she babbled that ‘Fourth of July applies ONLY to white men.’  Oh, tell us more, oracle of ignorance.  Speaking of female dogs, Governor ‘Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, CPUSA-MI, is trailing in new polls.  Good.  She must go, too.   Oh, since we are on this topic of female curs, Governor Kate Brown, CPUSA-OR, says that ‘FEMA is racist’ because they ‘won’t help illegal aliens’ in her state and that ‘illegal aliens are more important than native citizens.’  WTF is wrong with these people?
  70. 2021 Monday J: Political News II– In other political news, famed political strategist and historian Dick Morris says that the prosecutions going against President Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization are designed to ‘shut him up’ which they won’t.  Speaking of the President, Rep. James “Chi-Com Cash” Clyburn, CPUSA-SC 6th CD, says that ‘President Trump may have to come and testify before the ‘esteemed and apolitical’ January 06, 2021, Select Committee.’  Uh-huh.  In your dreams, communist bag man.  In other political news- and this is humorous- Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, says he ‘is considering a 2024 presidential run.’  Sure, you and Chris “Lard Lad” Christie, Mitt “The RINO” Romney, Nikki “Two-Face” Haley, and loads of other RINOs.  In the words of Bob Dylan, “You ain’t going nowhere.”
  71. 2021 Monday K: Political News III– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, points out the truth that it’s the Democrats who are defunding law enforcement.  (Note- the Dems always tack defense bills or law enforcement bills onto other, extreme lunatic bills which the GOP cannot vote for and then blames the Republicans for doing what the Dems seek to do like defunding the cops.  Meanwhile, Democratic-Socialists are crying that the conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court are laying the groundwork for what they call the ‘devastation to come’ regarding democracy.  Folks, the Supreme Court is standing with the proponents of FREEDOM and FAIR ELECTIONS so stop with the crying and with the attempts at corrupting our elections system.
  72. 2021 Monday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– TC Energy- the company behind the now-canceled Keystone XL Pipeline- is suing the Biden regime over shutting down the project which benefits the peoples of Canada and the United States.  By canceling it, Joe Biden has strengthened Russia, OPEC, and other oil producers while leaving the U.S. dependent upon other nations.  Shame on Joe Biden.  We hope TC Energy wins the lawsuit.
  73. 2021 Monday M: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– A California man is facing federal charges after a truck in which he was transporting a gigantic amount of commercial grade fireworks blew up and injured 17 people.  Elsewhere, CNN reports that over the course of the three-day Fourth of July weekend, more than 400 shootings have occurred in mostly BLUE towns and cities with at least 150 of them being FATAL.  Democrats blame Donald J. Trump for all the violence when in fact, it’s the Democrats corrupt and evil policies causing the violence.  Just look at Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot- she blames Trump and everyone else for the problems besetting her city when in fact, it’s HER.  It’s ‘Frog-Face.’  She is a loser.
  74. 2021 Monday N: Fake News I– The New York Times has come under fire for comparing ‘flag wavers’ to ‘Trump supporters.’  Most Trump supporters are flag wavers but the corrupt, left leaning ‘newspaper of record’ hates the country and hates patriots.  Shame on them.  Why are they even still in business?   Speaking of America-haters, a new poll says that ONLY 36-percent of young Americans are proud of the greatest nation on Earth.  Shame on them.  Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, blasts the ‘Old Grey Lady’ for calling the American flag ‘divisive.’
  75. 2021 Monday O: Economic News– GOP-controlled states are doing extremely well economically and doing so sans the extra unemployment insurance the Biden regime is raining down upon the citizens of BLUE STATES with which to keep them at home and their economies in the doldrums.
  76. 2022 Tuesday:  Everyone knows the drill- stick around to discover the truth along with the rest of us- you will be glad you did…

[i] 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.

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

[iii] Sadly, Detective was a short-lived band but one that had the potential to be as legendary as Led Zeppelin, if only Disco was not trashing the airwaves.  You will find their three albums on: (1) Tuesday, 29-July-2014, (2) Thursday, 31-July-2014, and (3) Friday, 01-August-2014.  We hope you will seek them out.

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

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

[vi] Look for the Clash sometime within the next 5-10 years.  We know you will enjoy them.

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

[viii] It should be clear to all interested, well-informed readers that the Democrats could care less about black lives unless, of course, they can use their agonies to accomplish their perverted political goals.  Ask yourselves, why do blacks face murder and mayhem week after week in BLUE cities across the nation?  Why are Planned Parenthood centers predominantly near black and other minority communities?  Because to Democrats, ‘black lives don’t matter.’  Why then do blacks and other minorities continue voting for Democrats?

159. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JUNE 08, 2022

1954 Tuesday: In Hanoi, capital of French Indochina, a new general takes over after his predecessor was sacked on the 4th: General Paul Ely. Peace talks between the French, the communists, and the Russians are ongoing in Europe to bring some sort of end to the war there but the French are moving faster than the talks are. They are preparing to abandon much of the northern part of Vietnam while trying to hold on to portions of the south. The mood at home back in France is not very good- for the people of France, this smells a lot like the summer of 1940.

  1. 65 Monday: The Jews revolt against Roman rule in Jerusalem, capturing the Fortress Antonia, driving out, and massacring one of the legions guarding the city.  This would lead to a series of events that would bring Rome down hard upon the peoples of Judea.  By the time the war ended several years later, Jerusalem would be in ruins and the Jewish people carted off as slaves, not to return until 19th century.
  2. 452 Saturday: Attila the Hun invades Italy.

  65. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Wherever the laughing hyena- ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris- goes, she continues embarrassing herself and the administration.  When asked as to WHY she has yet to visit the southern border, she did what she does best and that is to burst out laughing like the jackal that she is.  Today, coming home from her humiliating trip to Guatemala to discuss the ongoing BORDER CALAMITY, she stopped in Mexico and was embarrassed there by anti-“Cho-Mo Joe” Biden-“Kooky Kamala” Harris protesters who showed up to tell her to go home and to reinforce the fact that President Donald J. Trump won.  As if this is not lethal to this fraudulent administration, news accounts say that ‘she fails to impress on her first taxpayer-funded trip abroad.’  Wow.  This is what happens when one helps steal an election and then tries to act as though they are legit.  People know the truth.  “Kooky Kamala” should tuck her cur tail between her legs and come home, disappear, and stay silent until the courts throw her and feeble Joe out of the White House.[xxii]  Speaking of this calamity along the border, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, said that ‘Joe Biden and his border czar are covering up the absolute disaster along the border by staying as far away from it as possible.’  Amen.
  66. 2021 Tuesday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, And ‘Refugees’ News– One America News once again updates the stats on what illegal immigration is costing the United States.  First, Cost this Day alone is $526,446,112.  Second, Total Cost this Year: $173,677,166,592.  Third: Number of Illegals who crossed the border this year: 1,780,052.  Fourth and final, Total Number of Illegal Aliens in the U.S. as you read this: 35,780,052 to which we say the ‘true number is closer to 60-80 million illegals.  Initiate new Operation Wetback II, round them up, load them onto trains, planes, buses, trucks, freighters, and even rickshaws and send them back to Mexico.  Let the Mexicans sort them out.  (Note- we learned yesterday on Newsmax that once the illegals make it across the southern border and arrive at safe houses, Americans come and pick them up and distribute them across three principal states- Texas, Tennessee, and Virginia.  And people claim the Replacement Theory is ‘conspiracy theory.’  Sure.  One thing we do know: any American citizen aiding the human trafficking must spend 20-30 years in a federal prison).
  67. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information–  Washington state has a new program running through July 12: “Joints for Jabs.”  If a person 21 or older gets the Chi-Vi vaccine, they can visit a state licensed marijuana dispensary and get themselves a free joint.  Question is, will it be bottom shelf stuff the likes of which they sell to low-income minorities or will it be top-of-the-line stuff imported from the Hindu Kush?  Thank you, Governor Jay Inslee, DS-WA, you big dumbass.  Still, people are shying away from getting the vaccinations now.   Next, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, signed a bill prohibiting COVID-19 Vaccine Passports and said that Texas is OPEN 100-percent.  Elsewhere, a New York pharmacist got fired for refusing to offer the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations.  Sad.   Finally, a new report says that ‘past COVID-19 infection is best defense against getting the disease again.’  In essence, this finding means that Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, was 100-percent correct when he said this while questioning the ‘Mighty Mite’ ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci.
  68. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Top airlines around the world are becoming increasingly uneasy and are asking global health authorities to begin easing the restrictions as otherwise, they will go broke sans customers.   Elsewhere, economic genius Peter Navarro says, ‘Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci[xxiii] orchestrated a coverup of the role the Chi-Coms played in loosing the Wuhan Flu on the world.’  Meanwhile, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory had a report ready to go back in May 2020 in which, it laid out the damning evidence that the Chi-Vi was lab-created and either loosed on the world through ineptitude or on purpose on an unsuspecting world.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is in cahoots with Little Mark Zuckerberg when it comes to covering up the Chi-Coms’ vast COVID-19 crimes.[xxiv]  Finally, UC Berkeley physics Professor Richard Muller told Greg Kelly on Newsmax that research shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Wuhan Virus Crisis was indeed developed within the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  
  69. 2021 Thursday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Russia announced today in advance of the upcoming summit in Switzerland on June 16 between Vladimir Putin and enfeebled Joe Biden their official withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty.  Ba-boom!  Another bitch-slap to the face of the drooler-in-chief.  Speaking of Russia, they are commissioning a new class of submarines, the Yasen-M-class nuclear-powered, guided missile submarine.  Next, communist-lover Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being pressured by both Canadian businesses and the United States to reopen the border between the U.S. and Canada.  In other hilarious news, French President Emanuel Macron found himself slapped across the face as he was out going on a walkabout and when he approached a rope line, a gentleman on the other side slapped him across his petulant puss.  Yikes.   Not sure what may have happened to the slapper.  In other foreign and overseas news, we learn today that the Chi-Coms are doing everything imaginable and then some to repress Uighur birth rates.  (Note- and you wonder why we typically say that the Chi-Coms and Nazi Germany have so much in common).[xxv] (Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the U.S. Senate is set to pass a sweeping tech bill with which to combat the communist threat emanating from Beijing).
  70. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– ‘Joe Biden’ is set to launch a ‘taskforce’ on America’s supply chain problems.  (Note- do what President Donald J. Trump advocated- bring EVERYTHING home from communist China.  Period).  Next, the Dems are having problems pushing the ‘Joe Biden agenda’ without the support of some of their own senators in the U.S. Senate.  Add to that the fact of liberal infighting, confusion, and plain stupidity and it’s no wonder his ‘agenda’ is going in a circular motion down the crapper and off to the water purification farm.  In fact, Senate ‘Majority Leader’ “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says infrastructure talks between the White House and the GOP have ‘hit a brick wall.’  His counterpart, Senate ‘Minority Leader’ ‘Cocaine Mitch’ McConnell, R-KY, says that ‘era of bipartisanship is over.’  Amen.
  71. 2021 Tuesday L: Big Tech News– Poll- 86-percent of Americans believe the United States is vulnerable to damaging cyberattacks.  The federal government, however, claims to have recovered around 63 Bitcoin from the account the hackers of the Colonial oil pipeline used to amass their ransom.  Good.  Now, we need to find and execute them.  Even as the feds have a success, a new cyberattack hits a provider of tech services to Capitol Hill demanding ransom.  This seems to be a daily, ongoing thing.  Someone nudge ‘drooling Joe’ and see if he’s awake.  Someone must do something.
  72. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News I– the U.S. Senate passes a bill with which to provide payments to victims of the ‘Havana Syndrome,’ the microwave attacks on U.S. diplomats and embassy personnel in various stations around the world.   About time.  Next, because U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has a penis and not a vagina between his legs, the LEFT is demanding he be replaced with former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.  Look, we think Garland’s a loser; however, replacing one loser with another loser makes no sense at all NO matter the genitalia.  In other news, Buckhead, a neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia, is seeking to secede from the crime-infested, illegal alien-overrun city and become their own city.  We hope they ‘secede.’  (LOL).  Meanwhile, a new U.S. Senate report on January 6, 2021, puts the onus on what happened on that day- one the Dems compare to the War of 1812, Pearl Harbor, and September 11, 2001- onto the Capitol Hill cops who did nothing even with intel to stop the FALSE FLAG OPERATION[xxvi] that overran the Capitol Building.
  73. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News II– Back from the graveyard, hardcore Democrat, cash bundler for the Clintons, and former Governor Terry McAuliffe, bested his opponents in the Virginia Democratic Party’s gubernatorial primary race.   Democrats believe the Virginia state races in November 2021 will demonstrate how well the Democrats are doing which is why in our view, Virginia is among the BIG THREE states where traffickers are bringing vast numbers of illegal aliens.   They want to flood the polls with a tidal wave of new voters to put a man labeled the “punk” by famed radio icon, Rush Limbaugh.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday O: Moron News– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez- the one some public relations firm tied to former Nazi and ‘born again communist’ George Soros dubbed ‘AOC’- was crying on some radio or TV show about having to get counseling for her post-traumatic stress disorder she claims to have suffered at the aforementioned Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Wah, wah, wah, girl, don’t you ever shut up?  Speaking of another moron, octogenarian entertainer Cher can’t distinguish between blonde female senators.  She was bitching and moaning about Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, not standing with her party and confused her with a vacuous blonde from New York Kirsten Gillibrand.  Cher said the voters of New York must vote that skank out of office.  She didn’t mean you, Senator Gillibrand.  Perhaps someone can enlighten Cher?[xxvii]   Finally, actress Ellie Kemper of ‘The Office’ fame is yet another to bite the dust as the WOKE mob continues devouring its own.  Apparently, Ms. Kemper went to a Cotillion dance and celebration back in flipping 1999 and because she wore a white dress and white gloves to her above her elbow as females participating in these events typically do, she became a MAJOR TARGET and was forced to apologize profusely and to then leave whatever show of which she was a cast member.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1666 with a pot of $56 million.  Here are the numbers: 09, 22, 39, 41, 54, and Mega 19.  Out of 53,082 winning numbers in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $41,111.

One thing about the Beach Boys is that while their vocal harmonies soared, harmony among the band members was always affray which was sad.  Alan Jardine and Mike Love sought control, but Brian Wilson had the ‘touch.’  Carl contributed great tunes whereas Dennis was slowly becoming a problem for the band.  Still, the band had not released a new studio album since “Holland” several years back.  Demand was high and thus it was time to release a brand-new record and to make it appear as though Brian was back at the helm.  Thus, we get “15 Big Ones,” released on July 05, 1976.  The album is a mix of classic oldies and some Beach Boys compositions that might have appeared on B-Sides and the like. The album features the same lineup as the preceding one: Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Bruce Johnston (backing vocals), and others including members of the touring ensemble.  Say what you will about the album but at the time, it was a godsend since fans sought any music from the group and it would mark the start of the ‘third period of productivity.’  We hope you will seek this one out as it has its moments and some tunes such as Alan Jardine’s “Susie Cincinnati” are a joy to behold.  Seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening rotation.  Enjoy.

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

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Steve Miller Band, we screwed up by not promoting the music of Boz Scaggs at the same time.  We look forward to doing it soon.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

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

[vi] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

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

[viii] James Comey is a worthless POS and one of the main coup plotters against President Donald J. Trump.  We hope he will soon be breaking rocks at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary for his role in the attempted coup.

[ix] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  Seeing as how Fleetwood Mac was among the earliest bands we ever promoted, we will have to pick them back up and present not only the music of the band that has come out since then but also the individual member’s solo projects.

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

[xxi] So says Investopedia: How Much U.S. Debt Does China Own? (investopedia.com)

[xxii] Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-OH 2nd congressional district, says it’s ‘absolutely unbelievable that neither Joe Biden nor his flunky have visited the southern border. 

[xxiii] A new Rasmussen poll says that ONLY 40-percent of Americans believe the ‘Mighty Mite’ told the truth at any point.

[xxiv] Speaking of the political hack doctor, the “Fire Fauci Act” continues to gain momentum.  It is funny that yesterday during a trip the midget doctor took with Dr. Jill Biden, the ersatz ‘first lady,’ people along the way hooted and yelled at them, demanding he resign office NOW.

[xxv] Like the Nazis, the Chi-Coms allow ‘private ownership of businesses and wealth’ as long as the business owners and wealthy play ball with the regime.  Like the Nazis, the Chi-Coms have a strong territorial aggression agenda by which they will take over other nations through threat or by cash.  Like the Nazis, they seek to exterminate the Untermensch (in their eyes) of racial, ethnic, and religious minorities, and maintain a vast system of concentration and slave labor camps and do something the Nazis never even thought of doing: organ harvesting for sale to the highest bidder.  Yes, the People’s Republic of China is Nazi Germany but with an Asian face.

[xxvi] The False Flag Operation was one organized by Antifa and carried out with their thugs and Black Lives Matter communists insinuated into the ranks of Trump supporters to make it appear as though it was Trump supporters run amok.  The Dems are milking these teats for all their worth.  Their time will come.

[xxvii] Because this woman is a ditz, we will NEVER promote her music; we will, however, one day do the music of Sonny and Cher.

  62. 2016 Monday:  In the beautiful Mexican vacation town of Acapulco, police find themselves in a running gun battle with Mexican cartel gangbangers.  The shootout goes on for two hours but amazingly, only one gunman was killed with no police casualties other than a minor wound.  However, in another part of town, cartel bangers attacked a federal police base in the city with no effect, all because the police scooped up a high-ranking cartel boss known as “The Donkey.” 
  63. 2017 Tuesday: Acting U.S. Attorney General Dana Boente stepped down from his post today.  A Republican, Boente served under President Donald J.

Bush from February 03, 1989, to January 20, 1993. 
  66. 2020 Saturday: Speculation continues to swirl around North Korean leader Kim Jong Un- is he or is he not still alive?  He purportedly had some sort of cardiac issues, but no one knows for sure.  Could his sister, Kim Yo Jong have struck a dagger into his back?  We continue to await further developments.  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19 battlefront, the world reports 2,892,508 cases this Saturday what with 202,455 deaths but at least 815,658 confirmed recoveries.  In the U.S., the number of confirmed cases rests at 956,375 confirmed cases what with 53,928 confirmed deaths but 102,340 confirmed recoveries.  Some states such as Georgia and Colorado have announced re-opening of their economies and we await further developments on this front.  Back to COVID-19, the communist Chinese continue sticking with their bulls**t statistics that they have but 88,423 confirmed cases what with 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 81,725 confirmed recoveries.  Pay no attention as communists like jihadists always lie.
  67. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 146,628,322 confirmed cases, +557,092, 3,102,588  confirmed deaths, +6,910, and 84,489,495 confirmed recoveries, +393,675.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,244,617 confirmed cases, UP 59,122 from yesterday’s reporting, 577,224 confirmed deaths, UP 959,[iii] and 119,076,302 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[iv] 
  68. 2021 Sunday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 263,773 Chi-Vi Deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  72. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.991 per gallon, $2.792 in Florida, $3.762 in Hawaii, and $3.409 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Minnesota: $2.733.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,213,803,340,013 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  73. 2021 Sunday F: Miscellaneous News I– The National Rifle Association is launching a $2 million campaign with which to combat the crazy gun policies of the Biden regime.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that Project Veritas proves the far too numerous campaign violations CNN committed during the 2020 Presidential campaign.  Next, a bipartisan group is working to stymie Democrats’ court-packing scheme and what is even more important, 72-percent of registered independent voters OPPOSE the Democrats’ court-packing schemes.   Elsewhere, Minnesota Attorney General Keith Ellison says that the ‘Judge in the trial case of Derek Chauvin should go neither light nor heavy when sentencing of the former Minneapolis police officer occurs.’  The AG said it was ‘never about revenge but about accountability’ and that the sentence must reflect the crimes.
  74. 2021 Sunday G: Miscellaneous News II– The GOP is blasting the infamous baby chop shop, aka the home of the Pro-Death Movement- Planned Parenthood- for taking PPE and small business loans during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Next, a new poll says that 45-percent of the American people believe the border was much more secure under President Donald J. Trump while 77-percent blame Joe Biden for the ongoing BORDER CRISIS.   Meanwhile, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, and the New Hampshire GOP slam “Kooky Kamala” Harris for visiting the wrong border state.   In other news, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that in Joe Biden’s first 100 days, Joe Biden is destabilizing the entire country.  Finally, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, the big cheese in New York is denying all freedom of information requests regarding the thousands of COVID-19 deaths he and his policies have caused the state.  Sounds like a guilty man if we have ever seen one…
  75. 2021 Sunday H: Miscellaneous News III– Funny things are going on in the Chi-Vi vaccine racket what with the stock price of Emergent BioSolutions tanked following revelations of the company’s Baltimore plant ruining more than 15 million doses of the now-infamous Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the one formulated and testing using recovered aborted fetal tissue.  Even worse, the CEO Robert G. Kramer sold more than $10 million in stock in the company back in January and February as if he knew in February that the company was going to lose ’15 million doses of the Chi-Vi vaccine due to incompetence, stupidity, and perhaps on purpose.   In other tragic news, the missing Indonesian submarine has been found in three parts on the ocean floor.  Poor sailors.  God bless them.  Meanwhile, the European Union yesterday blamed the People’s Republic of China for rising tensions in the South China Sea.
  76. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 510,070,450 confirmed cases, +606,317, 6,245,573 confirmed deaths, +2,741 and 463,086,050 confirmed recoveries, +1,117,425.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,289 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,534 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 460 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  82. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– In a major embarrassment for the American people, our pathetic strumpet of a vice president, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, has been in charge of the ongoing border disaster for 388 days.  Worse than that, this pole-climbing bag of bulls**t has not shown up to do her job in 302 days.  Absolutely disgusting.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens since New Year’s Day 2022 is $732,695,495.  Next, the cost of caring for the Biblical deluge of illegal aliens since senile Joe and “Kooky” assumed office is $42,478,501,238.  The conservative low estimate of illegal alien invaders who have swarmed across the border since the first day of the year is 1,170,603.  Shocking and simply unsustainable.  The conservative LOW-LOW-LOW estimate of illegal aliens devouring resources meant for the American people is 46,602,260.  We believe the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million but given the way things are going, it could soon be 100-130 million which is even worse.  Round ‘em up, load ‘em aboard every available means of transport and get them the f**k out of the country.  NOW.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

97. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 07, 2022

2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 NEWS I- A growing number of governors across the United States are making a stand against any suggestion of the Biden administration’s idea of forcing everyone to present COVID-19 vaccine passports to return to normal life. This never happened when homos were running amok, and HIV-AIDS was a true crisis so any suggestion we should have proof of vaccine is a big overstep for government. We are not the flipping Chi-Coms.
