Question is, does the conflict in Ukraine possess the same spark potential as did the assassination of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife, Sophie? Take out Putin NOW!

  63. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.

  81. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, that tomorrow’s ‘Justice for J6 Rally’ is going to be a setup.  We believe that tomorrow’s affair is going to be a “Mumbles” Pelosi setup what with loads of FBI informants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators, and that anyone who does not want to end up in the D.C. gulag with the other 400-plus poor souls would be wise to avoid the nation’s capital.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts one of the losers who voted to impeach him- retiring Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, RINO-OH 16th congressional district, by saying that the Rep.’s vote to impeach him was ‘very stupid.’  It was.  Look at what is happening to the losers who voted to impeach the 45th president.  One by one, they are losing support, becoming impotent, and will soon all be gone.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is weighing executive privilege in releasing documents related to President Donald J. Trump and the events of January 06, 2021.  Speaking of slobbering Joe, his approval ratings have imploded down to 44-percent- his lowest yet- which means in reality, the loser’s polls are nearer 34-30-percent than they are 44-percent.  Newsmax host Rob Finnerty says, ‘bye-bye Bide, the future we all knew was coming and didn’t want to admit.’ Meanwhile, in another slap to the feeble dictator, two large polluter nations were absent from Joe Biden’s follow-up climate summit.  Finally, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that ‘Joe Biden’s mandate regarding businesses forcing employees to get the Chi-Com vaccinations is divisive and that it undermines doctors.’
  83. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has interceded in the Purdue Pharma company settlement wanting to go after them some more.  In other Biden regime-related news, the impotent U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken deleted a tweet that said, “The U.S. stands with Hong Kong.”  Chi-Coms didn’t like that, eh?  Next- in something that sounds mighty unconstitutional to most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, the Biden regime is cutting off the supply of monoclonal antibodies to Red States.
  84. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Nineteen days after blowing up an Afghan ally of the United States and nine members of his family for being the ‘one’ who plotted and carried out the August 27, 2021, suicide bombing that killed 13 American servicemen-and-women, the Pentagon was forced to announce that it had erred taking ‘Taliban intel’ and blowing up this poor man and his family sight unseen.  Oooh, the mighty United States, whacking and stacking God knows who just as it did during the heady days of Obama-Biden.  Still, the Biden regime has better things to do- the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the way it holds ‘tranny prisoners’ in federal prisons.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Served papers yesterday while on a live radio program conducting an interview, famed political strategist Roger Stone said ‘there’s NO evidence supporting the lawsuit against him’ regarding U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the geriatric, nonagenarian leader of the House, and her claims of being behind the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  We believe you, Roger.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has okayed ‘100 National Guard troops to be on scene for the Saturday rally.’
  86. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– The Republican National Committee has released a new ad showing the countless times that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has lied, flipflopped, or laid bull crap on the American people. Ronna McDaniel- chair of the RNC- says that ‘Joe Biden’s COVID-19 mandates are the results of his far too many failures.’  Next, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says that ‘Joe Biden has NO business forcing COVID-19 mandates on the American people.’  Amen. 
  87. 2021 Friday T: Political News II– Axios reported today- to the dismay of the Biden regime- that under no circumstances will Senator Joe Manchin, D- W. VA, will vote ‘YES’ on the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Good.  Elsewhere, Arkansas senatorial candidate and U.S. Army veteran Jake Bequette says that the massive crowds attending college football games shows that the American people are ready to return to their lives.  The government had better pay attention to this. 
  88. 2021 Friday U: Political News III– Thirteen hardcore leftist Dems are pushing for expanded unemployment benefits in the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills.  Meanwhile, Health and Human Services tells Texas abortion providers, “We got your backs.”  Elsewhere, Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, D-MD 5th congressional district, says that the House will hold a vote so as to avoid imminent government default and subsequent shutdown.  Elsewhere, as mobs of illegal alien invaders swarm under the Del Rio, Texas, bridge, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that the “National Guard should be deployed to maintain order under and along that bridge as a swarm of 10,000 or more Haitian ‘asylum seekers’ mills about there.
  89. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– As outrage continues to grow regarding Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and his phone calls with the Chi-Coms, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien say the ‘NSA had NO intel suggesting anything that disingenuous fiction author Bob Woodward says in his new book, “Peril,” existed.  Mr. Woodward says that ‘General Milley called the Chi-Coms to warn them that he would warn them should Trump decide to nuke them in his final days.’  Gen. Milley must face courts marshal for being a traitor.
  90. 2021 Friday W: Business News– Ford Motor Company claims the demand for its EV Ford 150 electric trucks is so great that they are going to invest $250 million to increase production and add another 450 jobs in three plants in Michigan to meet this incredible demand.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Tesla is going to work with regulators on data security, something of which, they seem to have problems.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After many years, ‘jinx’ multi-millionaire Robert Durst finally was found guilty of murdering his best friend.  Meanwhile, the judge in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse- accused of murdering two Antifa POS- said that the prosecution cannot bring up ties between Mr. Rittenhouse and the patriotic organization, the Proud Boys.
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Big Tech News– Get this: the arbiter of what’s ‘true’ on the Internet, Google, and Apple, have removed imprisoned critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny’s ‘tactical voting app’ designed to mobilize the Russian people to fight back against the new communist dictator, Mr. Putin.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com intelligence gathering app- TikTok- has a new problem, the so-called ‘devious licks challenge’ that encourages American school-aged kids to break the law via vandalism.  Isn’t it about time we began nuking these sons of bitches?
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, the final Sears (and Roebuck) store- north of Chicago, Illinois- is set to close on November 14, 2021.  What a tragedy of mismanagement, not knowing its customers any longer, and being unable to morph with the times.  Sad, extremely sad, it did not have to happen.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: New York State News– Freshman Governor Kathy Hochul, D-NY, has given the people of her state a big gift: 191 freed inmates.  Meanwhile, three people went off on a New York City eatery host for requesting proof of vaccination before allowing them to enter.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Texas State News– Another Texas death row inmate has had his execution delayed over religious freedom claims.  Meanwhile, Governor Greg Abbott signed a $1.8 billion infrastructure bill to continue erecting the Trump border wall.  The governor said, ‘Joe Biden’s failures to do his job guarding the border has forced Texas to do the federal government’s job at protecting the border and its citizens.’  Meanwhile, state Representative Matt Krause, Republican, is going to primary sitting Attorney General Ken Paxton in 2022.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– Campus Reform students sign a petition to abolish the U.S. Constitution because it’s racist, doesn’t recognize gays, trannys, and people of color.  In other ‘moron news,’ U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-12th congressional district, a person whom capitalism has benefitted immensely, jumped on the socialist train while overseas and says that ‘capitalism has not served the U.S. well.’
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Today, Los Angeles, California, was announced to be the ‘Bedbug capital of the United States.’  Now that’s a distinction that every town and city in the entire United States covets.  Wow. No wonder we no longer like going to the city of (Fallen) Angels.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1695 what with a $400 million jackpot on the line: 17, 32, 40, 59, 61, and Mega 18.  Out of 130,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,613 apiece.
  99. 2021 Saturday: Observation of the Day– This past Tuesday, Greta Van Susteren had John “Perpetual War” Bolton on her show on Newsmax and the two discussed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to tactical nukes on the battlefield in Ukraine.   Look, if Adolf Hitler had nukes in 1944 or 1945, he would have used them against Great Britain and Russia for sure and the against U.S. if he could have delivered them.  That little cave-dwelling, slope-headed cretin Vladimir Putin sure as heck does have nukes and if he is facing Armageddon, then so will his enemies.  He already has severed energy supplies to the stupid-assed Europeans who came to depend upon him the same way American leaders delivered our country into the pockets of Xi Jinping.  We could be on the cusp of a global catastrophe much like the world was in early summer 1914 because back then, NO one believed that a far-off conflict in Eastern Europe could envelop almost all of the world in its horrifying embrace.  Yet, by the end of the year, three-quarters of the world was involved in the worst bloodletting the globe had ever seen. Serbia is not that far away from Ukraine so it’s easy to see how just the right spark- like a strike on one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants- could be the spark of the End Times.  Let us pray that someone dispatches Vladimir Putin and soon so we can avoid just such an outcome.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick next delivered a four-tune EP on June 02, 1980, the acclaimed “Found All the Parts.”  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Being an extended play much like a double-sided single with two tunes on either side, the band provides some awesome tunes.  First, we have a cover of the Beatles’ “Day Tripper” followed by “Can’t Hold On” followed by two more tracks, “Such a Good Girl” and “Take Me, I’m Yours.”  You can seek this one out at your favorite site for music or you can purchase the extended version of tomorrow’s offering as it has all four of these tunes added as bonus tracks.  Either way, the decision rests with you and your pocketbook.  Enjoy.

[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. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

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

Rush Limbaugh foretold of what the Dems have been working hard at accomplishing since his death: nullifying elections in the United States.

Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!

  74. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,150,151 confirmed cases, +480,596, 4,671,400 confirmed deaths, +8,373 and 203,826,456 confirmed recoveries, +454,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,432,847 confirmed cases, UP 144,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 684,572 confirmed deaths, UP 2,231,[vi] and 32,244,493 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,709.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 366,118 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 37,960 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[ix]

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

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0953 a 7” x 5” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Lone Rose.”  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 Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On October 08, 1978, Cheap Trick released their first live album, “Live at Budokan.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

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

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

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

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

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

[xvii] IF the charges against Gen.

Milley, says that ‘his calls to his Chi-Com ‘counterpart’ (we believe, MASTER) were designed to prevent conflict between the Chi-Coms and the U.S.  Folks, we believe that Milley is a creature of Beijing.  This is definitely NOT good.

  56. 2016 Tuesday: Following news that her health is not all that good, Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton promises to release additional medical records so the public can learn about her various conditions.  Meanwhile, new video is released from a Trump rally in North Carolina that shows a Trump supporter sucker-punching a young leftist protester smack dab in the chops as security leads the little wimp out of the arena.  Elsewhere, former British Prime Minister David Cameron steps down from Parliament.
  57. 2017 Wednesday: In the aftermath of outgoing Hurricane Irma, first responders in Hollywood, Florida, try to rescue senior citizens trapped in a rest home sans electricity and air conditioning with at least 11 dead already.  WTF!  Meanwhile, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres says that after the Myanmar military has cracked down on its Rohingya Muslims that 370,000 have fled to Bangladesh.  He calls this ‘catastrophic.’  Myanmar doesn’t think so.
  58. 2018 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump dismissed the finding of public health experts who estimated that nearly 3,000 people had died in Puerto Rico from the effects of Hurricane Maria.  The death toll was nowhere near what his enemies proclaimed it to be.  Meanwhile, former UK Prime Minister and now head of the Global Extremist Monitor Tony Blair reports that in ‘2017, 121 Islamic extremist groups took the lives of at least 84,000 people around the world.’  Again, got to love the so-called ‘religion of peace.’  When is Islam going to undergo a reformation?  Finally, do-gooders in Spain vote to exhume the body of the ‘savior of Spain’ Generalissimo “El Caudillo” Francisco Franco from the Valley of the Fallen.  The man saved that country from communism, people.  Leave him where he lies.
  59. 2019 Friday: Rock star Eddie Money lost his battle with cancer on this date and died in Los Angeles, California, at age 70.   Elsewhere, for her part in the college admissions scandal, actress Felicity Huffman receives a sentence of 14 days in the clink.

  62. 2020 Sunday B: Following the shootings of two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies in Compton, California, a 31-year-old female and a recent graduate of the academy, a 24-year-old male while they sat in their patrol car, law enforcement in the city put out a $100,000 reward leading to the arrest of the POS shooter who strolled up to their car and shot each in the head.  At the time of this publishing, both are in critical condition fighting for their lives.   Meanwhile, as Tropical Storm Sally roils off the west coast of Florida, expected to make landfall tomorrow along the Mississippi-Louisiana coastline, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards declares a state of emergency.  Speaking of storms, Hurricane Paulette in the Atlantic Ocean is making landfall in Bermuda as we speak. 
  63. 2020 Sunday C: Failed Democratic candidate and former New York City Mayor Michael “Peewee” Bloomberg announces he is going to dump $100,000,000 into Florida to help win it for “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Wow, how do we apply for some of those greenbacks?  Ah, well, polls show that Biden-Harris lead Trump-Pence across the nation by a comfortable margin of 51%-46%.  Speaking of President Trump, he is blitzing Nevada today meeting with all sorts of groups and speaking before large groups of people.  Still, Dems claim he is going to lose.   Elsewhere, House Homeland Security Committee Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-LA, says he sent a subpoena to acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf demanding he appear before the committee to answer questions on September 17.  Acting Secretary Wolf says he ‘will be happy to do so but first, he has to undergo the confirmation process so he can sit before them as the DHS director.
  64. 2020 Sunday D: The Chi-Coms are sniveling and whining that ‘President Trump is the fomenter of regional unrest in Asia.’  Wah, wah, wah, no wonder the Chinese Communist Party is supporting the campaign of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and Willie Brown’s ‘mattress,’ Sen. Kamala Harris.  The Chi-Coms are supporting Biden, the Russians are supporting Biden, the Iranians are supporting Biden, the Cubans are supporting Biden, hell, every country that hates the United States is supporting “Pro-China Joe” Biden- what does that tell you?  Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says ‘legislation is required’ to negotiate a free-trade deal with the European Union whom the PM says is threatening to blockade the Irish Sea.  WTF?  Finally, the western United States continues burning, homes are destroyed, people are dying all because the three governors of California, Oregon, and Washington won’t do proper forestry management.  Read tomorrow’s post in which, Chef Gervais says it’s because their retirement programs for public employees suck up approximately 90% of each state’s budget so it’s burn baby burn.  
  65. 2020 Sunday E: Today is the first Sunday of the NFL’s 101st season.  Here are the current scores: (1) Seattle Seahawks 38, Atlanta Falcons 25.  (2) Buffalo Bills 27, New York Jets 17.  (3) Chicago Bears 27, Detroit Lions 23.  (4) New England Patriots 21, Miami Dolphins 11.  (5) Washington REDSKINS 27, Philadelphia Eagles 17.  (6) Baltimore Ravens 38, Cleveland Browns 6.  (7) Green Bay Packers 43, Minnesota Vikings 34.  (8) Jacksonville Jaguars 27, Indianapolis Colts 20.   (9) New Orleans Saints 34, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23 (we predict a few more losses for the Bucs and Brady and Gronk will sign one day contracts with the New England Patriots so they can retire in Patriot uniforms).  (10) San Diego Chargers 16, Cincinnati Bengals 13.  (11) Arizona Cardinals 24, San Francisco 49ers 20.  (12) Oakland Raiders 34, Carolina Panthers 31.  Sunday Night Football: (13) Los Angeles Rams 20, Dallas Cowboys 17.

[x]   
  67. 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 361,034 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 43,044 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  68. 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: 4,486,798 confirmed cases, 67,232 confirmed deaths, and 2,349,983 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,463,780 confirmed cases, 48,772 confirmed deaths, and 2,387,556 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 72,352 confirmed cases, 660 confirmed deaths, and 71,692 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 600,427 confirmed cases, 6,991 confirmed deaths, and 256,563 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Diamond Princess Ship: they have 46 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 46 confirmed recoveries.[xi]

[xvi]        
  71. 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 dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $2.993 in Florida, $4.057 in Hawaii, and $3.879 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Connecticut: $3.190.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- New Zealand: $6.559 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,757,077,774,031 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Kingdom, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position. 
  72. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Every day it becomes more and more depressing as to what is occurring along the U.S.-Mexico border as well as around the country where the Biden regime dumps illegal aliens and unvetted refugees but still, we must soldier onward.  Today is Day No. 172 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s part-time mattress, to be in charge of the calamity befalling the nation as well as her 79th day since her ONLY trip to the region to ‘view the problem.’ “Kooky,” get your flat ass down there and do your flipping job.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  73. 2020 Monday G: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Six Los Angeles Police Department officers- the first of many expected to come- have filed suit against the city of Los Angeles over the imposition of China virus vaccines onto ALL citywide workers.  Good for you- stand strong and don’t give up.  Elsewhere, former New Jersey Governor Chris “Lard Lad” Christie says that ‘Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates will harden criticism of the unvaccinated.’  Go screw yourself, tubby.   However, a new Trafalgar poll shows a large percentage of the American people view Joe Biden’s illegal vaccine mandates as being ‘unconstitutional’ which they are.  Nothing Joe can or would do will change this.  They are ILLEGAL (as is the Biden regime).  Add to that the fact that President Donald J. Trump pointed out that during ‘his time in office, Democrats disparaged the vaccines’ so WTF Joe?
  74. 2021 Monday H: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.58 (2) AstraZeneca $55.96 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.93 (4) BioNTech $327.14 (5) Moderna $419.72.  As the push for more and more vaccine mandates increases, the enlightened reader must pay close attention to the stock prizes of the BIG PHARMA vaccine manufacturers so as to comprehend the reasons behind the push.  Democrats in Congress direct U.S. taxpayer dollars to these companies who then crank out billions of vaccines from which, the elected leaders and Deep State apparatchiks reap loads of money in the form of campaign donations, bribes, and kickbacks.  This is an evil system.  The same thing occurs for the military stocks outlined below.
  75. 2021 Monday I: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.64 (2) General Dynamics: $104.53 (3) Boeing: $214.49 (4) Lockheed Martin: $346.40 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $353.72.  Follow the money.  Follow the stocks in which the nomenklatura invests the BIG BUCKS.
  76. 2021 Monday J: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.25 (2) DuPont: $70.67 (3) Honeywell: $223.60 (4) 3M: $185.23 (5) Teijen: $1,676.00.  Remember when Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci said ‘we may have to wear goggles atop 2-3 masks?’  Well, this is why, these BIG PPE manufacturing companies sell stock, too, in which, the Deep State and elected leaders invest.  It’s almost like sleeping with one’s sister, it’s not right, it’s immoral, yet it happens all too frequently.  This must stop.
  77. 2021 Monday K: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.94 (2) Maple Leaf Foods, Inc./Tofurkey: $21.33.  The next big push is artificial meat, it’s BIG on the Green New Deal agenda.  They want to eradicate factory farming of livestock and replace it with “Soylent Green”-type FAKE MEAT.  It’s one thing to eat tofu and quite another to eat something of which, NO one knows what the hell is in it.  If you know nothing about “Soylent Green,” look it up.
  78. 2021 Monday L: Joe Biden News I– Mentally dead Joe Biden is being trolled after a video of him with a bunch of pro-Donald J. Trump school-aged kids goes viral. Even children know this POS dictator is illegitimate.  Biden took a photo with a group of kids who were all wearing MAGA hats and pro-Trump gear which the dictator seemed not to notice.  Our view is that IF this man is as absent as he seems, he must leave office NOW.  NOW!
  79. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Wherever doddering old Joe Biden stumbles- Idaho and California to survey ‘fire damage’- he attracts crowds but not the ones you may think.  These crowds are opposed to him, his policies, and the stinking mess he has caused in eight short months.  Average, ordinary, patriotic Americans let their ire be felt in respectful ways while the second week in a row, the chorus of “F**K JOE BIDEN” continues to grow at more and more college and university sports stadiums.  The American people have been pushed as far as they can go and the message is clear to everyone with half a brain or more: it is time for YOU to go, Joe.  Resign NOW.
  80. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken is testifying before the House Foreign Affairs Committee.  He will be answering questions on WHY his boss- slobbering Joe Biden- caused such devastation and destruction across that country.  The Republican National Committee is calling for the immediate termination of Secretary “Bullshit” Blinken over him being the face of the disgrace of the fetid, stinking mess of Afghanistan.   Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris says the ‘U.S. government must protect the vaccinated from the unvaccinated.’  Uh, okay, then EVERY member of Congress and their staffers must get vaccinated with this questionable vaccine.  Otherwise, STFU.
  81. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– A new book by Ben Schreckinger- former business associate of the Biden mob family- “The Bidens: Inside the First Family’s Fifty-Year Rise to Power”- demonstrates how the Biden crime family profited from Joe’s time in political office.  Wow.
  82. 2021 Monday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Early today, a California man from Oceanside, California- 44-year-old Donald Craighead- was arrested outside the Democratic National Committee headquarters after Capitol Hill police officers noticed he had a machete and a bayonet in his nearby vehicle.  Hmmm, sounds like another Cesar Sayoc-type guy, another ‘Capitol Hill pipe bomber,’ some loser the Dems set up to commit some non-crime with which they can tar and feather their GOP opponents and President Donald J. Trump.  We await further information.
  83. 2021 Monday Q: Political News I– Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, asks an especially important question: Were the mistakes the Biden regime committed in Afghanistan ‘intentional?’  (Note- we believe so, we believe the deal was to let the country implode as quickly as possible while leaving tens of billions of dollars of military and security equipment behind for the Taliban and other enemies such as communist China, Russia, and Iran to exploit.  We think that money would flow back to the Biden crime family in circuitous routes for handing over all this U.S. military technology.  Something similar occurred back in the early days of the Bush #43 regime when the Chi-Coms forced down one of our spy planes on Hainan Island and again when great pretender Barack Hussein Obama took office when the Iranians managed to bring down one of our drones.  Obama never demanded it back thus the Iranians and their allies gleaned U.S. military secrets.  This also occurred under the Clinton presidency when he allowed the Chi-Coms to gain U.S. missile secrets.  Amazing how all of these presidents think nothing of selling out the country they were elected to lead and how coincidentally, they achieve massive amounts of wealth.  Classic money-go-round with being a traitor thrown in for good measure).
  84. 2021 Monday R: Political News II– The Democrats continue pushing the finalization of the largest tax increase on the American people in U.S. history with Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, being the lone holdout against the criminal $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  Senator Manchin is taking heat from his fellow Democrats including incoming from dingbat Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, she with the BIG ECONOMIC DEGREE from Boston University.  Senator Manchin waves the dumb bitch off the way a cow’s tail waves flies away from its ass.  Stand strong, Senator Manchin, stand strong.
  85. 2021 Monday S: Political News III– In yet another reason why regular Republicans detest their elected leaders, former President George W. Bush blasts average Americans by linking the Taliban and other jihadists to the Capitol Hill protesters who were swept up in the FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS being run by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi on January 06, 2021.  (Note- my GOP colleagues tell me they wish they could take back their votes from voting for this bum back in 2000 and again in 2004.  I can see why they feel this way as this is not right.  Chef Itzi Nakamura).
  86. 2021 Monday T: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Abortion providers across the United States are demanding the U.S. Supreme Court uphold Roe v. Wade, the ‘landmark’ decision that legalized the murder of the unborn from one end of the country to the other.
  87. 2021 Monday U: Arizona State News– An Arizona judge is going to look into the statewide ban on the wearing of masks in public schools.  Pro-mask groups are wailing and screaming over Governor Doug Ducey and his executive order banning the imposition of mask mandates and have found a favorable left-wing judge with which to challenge the governor’s constitutional authority on this and other Chi-Vi vaccine-related issues.
  88. 2021 Monday V: California State News– As the recall election is underway in California with which to remove perhaps the worst sitting governor in the history of the United States- Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom- reports are already coming out of people going to vote YES on the recall and discovering that the computer says, “They have already voted.”  There is going to be so much political chicanery coming from the left as the Dems try to save their ’golden bitch’ from being booted out on his ass that they are willing to replicate what they did on November 03, 2020, and that is to steal the election.  We suspect, however, that there are going to be so many YES votes on the recall that the Dems will be unable to mass produce enough ballots on the fly to save this puling POS governor.   The time is NOW to save the Golden State and to return it to the glorious place it once was.   
  89. 2021 Monday W: California State News II– Meanwhile, actress Rose McGowan joins forces with gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder saying that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom’s wife begged her NOT to talk about Harvey Weinstein’s depredations ahead of the world learning of them.  Seems like Governor “Nazi” Newsom and his wife aren’t so WOKE when it comes to a pig such as Mr. Weinstein.  Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-CA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘off-base Newsom deserves recall.’   Elsewhere, Michael Reagan says that Larry Elder is going to get BLOWN OUT in tomorrow’s recall election.  Finally, Ashli Babbitt’s widowed husband, Aaron- reports that he has received FOUR mail-in ballots at his home where he lives alone.
  90. 2021 Monday X: Missouri State News– Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, is probing vandalism that befell a memorial to the victims of September 11, 2002.  What a bunch of Marxist scum.  We must begin ferreting these SOBs out and show them what it means to be an American with love of country.
  91. 2021 Monday Y: New York State News– A New York hospital announced recently that it will NO longer deliver babies due to so many of its OB staff leaving the hospital over the Chi-Vi vaccine mandates.  Sad, incredibly sad.  At least 30 delivery room personnel have stood up and said, “We are not going to get vaccinated for the Wuhan Fever.”  Stand your ground, people, stand your ground.
  92. 2021 Monday Z: Sports News I– Tonight is the first Monday Night Football game of the 2021-2022 NFL Season: the Baltimore Ravens (0-0) @ the Las Vegas Raiders.  In overtime, the Raiders pull one out with a final score of 33-27.  Las Vegas will be rocking tonight as this was the new stadium’s first home crowd.  The hookers are going to be busy all night…
  93. 2021 Monday AA: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #884 with a jackpot of $416 million up for grabs: 37, 40, 50, 61, 63, and Powerball 21.  Out of 68,526 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 45 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $429 apiece.
  94. 2022 Tuesday:  Every Californian must remember in November that NO matter how unknown many of the Republican candidates in the California General Election, we must vote for them.  While GREEN this and GREEN that sound orgasmic, the truth of the matter is, like anything else, one cannot wham-bam into existence without proper planning and forethought.  Look at our illustrious governor, threatening power shutoffs at every turn and encouraging ALL EV owners not to plug their cars in between the hours of 4:00 PM and 9:00 PM because it will shatter the grid, the day after the little sword-swallowing closet fruitcake told the state that come 2035, NO MORE GASOLINE POWERED VEHICLES WILL BE SOLD IN THE STATE.  This man is such a worthless moron, he should have been booted out in last year’s recall election yet using the same chicanery that saved George Gascon he managed to retain power.  People, even if the cost of EVs could be cut by half, most California homes would require expensive updates to their electrical system in order to charge these ‘miracle vehicles’ without throwing the breakers and shutting off power.  Friends, we expect to join the exodus out of the Golden State as soon as we can sell our landmark restaurant and to go into retirement, preferably either down in Florida or in Nevada.  Either one would be good because California is on the precipice of complete collapse, and it certainly does not have to be this way.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  59. 2014 Monday: “Nymphaea,” a painting in Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” series, is auctioned today for a price of $54 million; this is only the second-highest price paid for a Monet – another painting in the series sold in 2008 for $80.3 million at auction.
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Amazon.com joins the bandwagon against the Confederate flag following the shooting committed by Dylann Storm Roof the previous week.  Although many Americans see, the flag as part of the nation’s history—from the Civil War—many among the American people see it as a symbol of racism and want it removed.  Elsewhere, NASA’s Mars Odyssey completed its 60,000th orbit around the Red Planet.  The spacecraft entered orbit around the fourth planet from the Sun on October 23, 2001.
  61. 2016 Thursday: On this date, the people of Great Britain flock to the polls to vote in the Brexit Referendum.  The majority of Brits vote to leave the corrupt European Union which sets in motion near-constant problems among younger Brits who don’t want to go and with the EU who wants them to stay no matter what.

  64. 2019 Sunday: Upset Czechs, numbering around 250,000 take to the streets- not for a Black Lives Matter protest but because they are angry at the nation’s Prime Minister Andrej Babis.  The protest occurs in Letna Plain Park and is the biggest public protest since the days when the communists ruled the country.  Elsewhere, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan stepped down from his position on this date.  A member of NO political party, he served under President Donald J. Trump from January 01,2019 until today.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: The FBI announces that the rope- not calling it a NOOSE- found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage has been there since last October.  Since the garage assignments were only made recently, they cast doubt on the ‘act’ being deliberate.  We will keep the readership posted.  UPDATE ON PREVIOUS STORY: HATE CRIME HOAX.  Next, the European Union says it ‘may ban Americans from visiting Europe’ over COVID-19 concerns.  Okay.  Finally, President Trump visits the southern border to celebrate more than 200 miles of new border wall going up and the fact that numbers of illegal aliens attempting to cross is down by 86-percent.  At a Students for Trump rally in Arizona, it is clear the president has loads of support.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: The Kung Flu, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka all manner of other names, continues causing problems.  Here are today’s stats for the globe: 9,154,232 confirmed cases, 473,650 confirmed deaths, and 4,585,022 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,373,274 confirmed cases, 122,654 confirmed deaths, and 735,365 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM- has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, Golden State first: 183,073 confirmed cases, 5,580 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him!  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 816 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 669 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor David Ige for refusing to play Blue State politics.  Finally, in left-wing moron Governor Jay Inslee’s Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,350 confirmed cases, 1,284 confirmed deaths, but NO reported confirmed recoveries.  The lack of information about recoveries tells one all they need to know.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 300,278 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 159,371 deaths

  73. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.243 per gallon, $2.941 in Florida, $3.982 in Hawaii, and $3.652 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- New Hampshire: $2.952.  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- Sudan: $3.921 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,440,917,002,371 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Thailand, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xvi]
  74. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 92 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, to be in charge of the border and yet to have shown up for a single day’s work.  Still, a new pronouncement says that “Kooky Kamala” is going to tour the border this Friday so she can see the mayhem for herself.  Of course, this comes after last week’s announcement by President Donald J. Trump and Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, that the pair would tour the border next Wednesday, June 30, with at least 12-15 other Republicans.  President Trump says- and rightfully so- that ‘Kooky Kamala Harris would NEVER have visited the southern border IF Trump had not announced that he was going.’  Amen.  In other border calamity news, the Biden regime is going to give illegal aliens who failed to show up for their ASYLUM HEARINGS a second bite at the apple by welcoming deportees back to try again.  F**king Joe.
  75. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the numbers from One America News that shows both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens as well as the magnitude of this unnecessary disaster: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the Illegal Aliens $529,629,760.  (2) Total Amount this Year of caring for Illegal Aliens: $190,118,690,816.  (3) Total number of illegal aliens who have crossed in 2021: 1,948,564.  Finally, (4) Total ESTIMATED number of illegals in the United States: 35,948,564.[xvii]  (Note- we have estimated since the inception of this blog that there were between 35-and-50 million illegals in the United States- back in 2009, no less- whereas now, we believe we have 75-100 million illegals in the United States and the numbers only continue growing.  Time to call in pest control services).
  76. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– A Russian warship fired warning shots at a Royal Navy vessel transiting the Black Sea.   Meanwhile, the Intel community prophesies that the Afghan government could ‘topple’ within months of the U.S. pullout.  Folks, we have been there more than 20 frigging years and if the SOBs are not prepared by now to fight their own war, then it demonstrates the entire thing was a waste of resources and lives.   Elsewhere, reports have arisen saying that Russian naval vessels have approached within 2 dozen miles off the coast of various Hawaiian islands as they continue pushing the bounds and gathering intelligence.  What is clear is that NO one fears the ‘slobberer-in-chief,’ “Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden sitting in the White House basement spanking his wank.  (Like son, like father, we guess).  (Note- we expect that a new Axis of Russia, the Chi-Coms, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and second- and third-line allies of these nations will soon launch actions across the world because “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to do NOTHING in response.  We mean, why would they not?  It’s open hunting season against the U.S.)
  77. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– USC and the Rand Corp. show the results of a recent study that excessive lockdowns and restrictions related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis caused more problems than they helped.  Of course, the libs have no desire to hear this but it’s true- depression, emotional issues, alcohol and drug abuse, apathy and suicide went up, up, and UP.  Elsewhere, 153 staff members of a Methodist hospital in Houston have either been fired or been forced to resign over their refusal to take the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  Stand strong, people, stand strong.  Next, further reinforcing the beliefs of millions of Americans that the vaccines are either unnecessary or dangerous or both, the malevolent little dwarf, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci rushes out to claim the ‘Delta variant of the Chi-Vi is deadly but getting one of the vaccinations will protect one from its ravages.’  Right on time there, “Phony Tony.”  (Note- when is this lying POS going to be fired?  His time is up, folks).
  78. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that Joe Biden should have pressed the Chin harder over answers as to the origins of the China Virus.  Good for you, senator.   Next, regarding the evil ‘Delta variant’ of the Xi Jinping Pox, health authorities are telling us that both AstraZeneca and Pfizer are effective at combatting this new, fearsome variant from the Wuhan Bat Lab.  In other Chi-Com Virus news, the U.S. government seized an unauthorized shipment of Chairman Xi Kung Flu vaccines heading to Mexico.
  79. 2021 Wednesday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News-Oregon County officials have visited the ongoing Arizona 2020 Election audit so they can possibly replicate it in their counties.   Next, Michigan Republicans want to replicate an Arizona-style election audit in their state.  We say, “Go for it!”
  80. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden News– Slobbering Joe Biden blames young people for sabotaging his efforts to get 70-percent of the American people vaccinated with one of the Chi-Vi vaccines roaming the land.  The more information that continues coming to light showing numerous adverse effects- especially on young people- the less people are inclined to get the shots.  NO MORE, JOE!  Meanwhile, Joe Biden nominates Cindy McCain to a U.N. post- the Food and Agriculture post, an ambassador-level position.
  81. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Twenty-two GOP state attorneys general are fighting to protect the Hyde Amendment from rampaging Democrats who want to blacken everyone’s soul by using taxpayer dollars to fund the PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT.  God bless them.   Next, the National Security Agency- the NSA- is reaching out to the private sector to help them combat hackers.  Speaking of hackers, esteemed (yeah, right) FBI boss Christopher Wray is encouraging hacked businesses not to pay the hackers ransoms.  Okay, what can they do?  What is the FBI doing on behalf of American businesses? 
  82. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– In New York City’s mayoral race, candidate Adams widens lead over nearest competitors Wiley and Garcia while Andrew Yang throws in the towel.  Sorry, Andrew, it appears you are as electable as is Robert Francis “Beto the Bullshitter” O’Rourke.  Maybe you should return to Taiwan?   In other political news, a majority of Republican voters say that ‘Critical Race Theory is a definite danger to the republic as founded.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis has signed a new bill forcing colleges and universities to teach the EVILS of communism to their students.  About damned time. 
  83. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Next week, we hear that the United States and the communist Chin are holding some sort of talks.   Next, political genius Dick Morris says that ‘Donald J. Trump is confident that the media will break its silence on the election audits.’  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley says it’s time to hire 100,000 new police officers to combat the rising crime wave.  Amen.  Elsewhere, a new Rasmussen poll says that 41-percent of the American people do not believe that Joe Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election ‘fair and square.’  NO one we know does.  The guy bragged about having the largest voter theft organization in the history of the country.  Time to remove him from office.  Meanwhile, as Georgia Democrats continue screeching and wailing about the clean-up of the voter rolls in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, says that his government is following federal law ad it cleans up its voting rolls.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News IV– RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘let’s concentrate on winning 2022 before we begin worrying about 2024.’  Amen.   Next, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that ‘without an increase in the debt ceiling, the United States could default on its debts by early August.’  This would collapse the country.  Jesus Christ, folks, the spiral of debt continues spinning like the spinning wheel spins (so sang Blood, Sweat & Tears back in the early 1970s).
  85. 2021 Wednesday Q:  U.S. Supreme Court News– The U.S. Supreme Court in an 8-1 decision handed the foul-mouthed cheerleader a big win today reaffirming the rights of Americans to freedom of speech.
  86. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s up to his old tricks once again babbling on about how he is going to do something about gun violence.  He goes after lawful gun owners while giving thugs and gangbangers a pass on shooting one another in the streets.   What a loser.  Next, a new poll says that 56-percent of the American people do not support the Biden regime’s screwed up handling of the Israeli-Palestinian issue.  We believe that’s true.  Most Americans want to see the Palestinians obliterated off the face of the globe so the entire Middle East could enjoy an extended peace.  It’s clear that Joe Biden loves the Palestinian Untermensch. (Note- must be money going into Joe’s back pocket somewhere in the money-go-round).
  87. 2021 Wednesday S: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Joe Biden regime is launching a new campaign to go after ‘devious and crooked’ gun dealers whom they believe are selling guns out the backdoor to criminals and others who cannot own them.  Joe wants to take guns away from law-abiding criminals while doing nothing to go after criminals who misuse stolen guns to commit heinous crimes.  Once again, we have yet another prime example of how the people ‘elected’ to lead us hate our guts.  Joe says the Second Amendment does not permit the ownership of cannons and other weapons but if you read the amendment, it does not specify what types of weapons one can own.  We favor constitutional carry and have taken great pains to make sure when the “Joestapo” shows up at the door, they won’t find our guns.  F**k them.
  88. 2021 Wednesday T:  Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The Pentagon rejects the charge that the U.S. military has gone WOKE.  By saying they have ‘not gone WOKE’ when everyone knows they have demonstrated beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Pentagon has drunk long and deep from the well of toxic WOKE Kool-Aid.  Not a suitable time to enlist in the military folks.  We will wait until President Donald J. Trump returns to the White House, hopefully soon.   Elsewhere, a Loudoun County school board meeting in Virginia goes all to hell as people protesting the gender insanity being forced on their kids get hauled away in handcuffs to the hoosegow including parent Jon Tigges who came on the Tucker Carlson program on Fox News Channel.   The fuzz declared the meeting attended by hundreds of American patriots an ‘unlawful assembly’ and waded into the midst of the attendees, fighting with people who most likely have been BIG SUPPORTERS of the cops up until now.  Look for that to change.   Finally, as the LGBTQIA+ Nazis continue demanding we pay attention to the pronouns preferred by all the snowflakes and twinkies out there, let’s just call everyone, “Comrade.”  Is that acceptable?
  89. 2021 Wednesday U: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin to be sentenced this Friday.  Everyone expects him to be sent away for 30 years.  We expect him to get a retrial, especially as how the judge allowed corrupt individuals onto the jury and that insane racist skank, Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd congressional district, went to Minneapolis the weekend prior to the verdict coming in and ginned up the threat of violence IF the jury acquitted Officer Chauvin.  “Prune Face” should be doing time in a federal slammer for jury tampering.
  90. 2021 Wednesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, has put forth a bill censuring the slobberer-in-chief, Joe Biden, over his criminal mishandling of the crisis along the southern border. 
  91. 2021 Wednesday W: U.S. Senate News– The U.S. Senate GOP successfully smacked down H.R. 1, aka S. 1- the “For the People Act” aka the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” via a unified stance.  This is great because it would allow the Democrats to federalize the system of elections that would be little more than a blatant power grab.[xviii]
  92. 2021 Wednesday X: Maryland State News–  Former DNC bigwig Tom Perez, DS, has thrown his hat into the ring for governor of the Old-Line State.  Wow.  This guy is nothing more than a political hack much like the Clinton bagman, Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe, who is trying to become the governor of Virginia again.
  93. 2021 Wednesday Y: Sports News– Organizers for the upcoming 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo announced today that they are banning alcohol sales and prohibiting fans from getting autographs from their favorite Olympians.  Next, defensive lineman for the Las Vegas Raiders Carl Nassib comes out as the first active openly gay player in the NFL.  Big whoop, he will be taking showers by himself from this point henceforth.  At least Michael Sam had to go to Canada to play and up there, he didn’t last long.  We expect Nassib will be out of the league within a year or two.
  94. 2021 Wednesday Z: Observation of the Day– This segment segues in perfectly.  All this talk about trannys- chicks with dicks– competing in the Olympics is insane just as it is for every other level of sports.  IF women must compete with sick boys claiming to be girls (like that ‘looker’ from New Zealand, the weightlifter), girls should be allowed to ‘dope.’  If they can dope, then they can stand an even chance at defeating this emotionally mixed-up boys; otherwise, it’s time to create a third category of sports- TRANNY SPORTS.  We have the ‘Special Olympics,’ let’s have the “Tranny Olympics.”  I bet more people would watch the ‘Tranny Olympics’ because who doesn’t like watching a good carnival freak show?  We know we do.
  95. 2021 Wednesday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Super Lotto Draw #3571 has a $57 million on the line tonight.  Meanwhile, the Powerball Draw #857 has a $63 million pot up for grabs so please, stick around and see the results.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 04, 09, 38, 40, 41, and Mega 25.  Out of 133,078 winning tickets, the highest winners were 25 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $983 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 13, 20, 40, 51, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 43,922 winning tickets in California, the highest winners was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,624.
  96. 2022 Thursday: Here is where we were ONE YEAR AGO TODAY when Chef Vladdie was doing the week: How soon before the new American ‘Gestapo’ (the Joestapo) shows up in the middle of the night, flashing their Nacht und Nebel badges to signify we no longer have any rights and can be arrested in the dead of darkness?  Remember: there are more than 75 million of us and it’s going to take them several years before they can accomplish the highly lampooned but equally true “Replacement Theory,” you know, the one in which American voters are replaced with a foreign-born population.  Of course, that’s just ‘QAnon shit, right?’   Stick around to uncover the events of the day along with the rest of us…then again, we probably will publish them NEXT year.

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

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

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iv] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Knack but one day, we most surely will.

[xviii] So as not to appear hypocrites like Democrats always do, we have pushed for a uniform system of elections codified by a constitutional amendment that would (1) demand voter ID for all elections (2) would imprison both unqualified voters (illegal aliens, felons, and others deemed incapable of voting), (3) would end same-day voting and early voting but would expand Election Day voting hours as well as provide absentee voting for those with a need to do so.  We also believe that U.S. military across the world should be able to vote a month in advance of Election Day and that their ballots would be transferred via military custody to a national military election site in Washington, D.C., where they would then be broken down into their states, counties, and cities.  Uniformity is important so long as it is to guarantee that ALL Lawful ballots are counted and unlawful ones not.  Also, if there are any crimes like we witnessed last election cycle such as GOP observers being booted, cardboard thrown up in windows, recounting of ballots, and trucking in pristine ballots printed elsewhere, people should face 25 years in a federal prison without the hope of early release.  Dead people must not vote, illegal aliens must not vote, criminals must not vote, and electronic machines and software programs should be booted in place of paper ballots with a paper trail.  You see, Democrats CANNOT win most honest elections which is why they are always trying to thieve elections any way they can.  We posit that DEEP BLUE STATES and CITIES most likely are a deep, deep RED.

147. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MAY 27, 2022

2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News- In a Newark, New Jersey, federal courtroom, 26-year-old letter carrier Nicolas Beauchene pleaded guilty to one count of ‘desertion of mail.’ The punk admitted to destroying ninety-nine 2020 Election ballots as well as another 2,000 pieces of mail. And bit by bit by bit, the dominoes continue falling. We will see a change in the outcome of the 2020 Elections. Count on it.

  56. 2005 Friday: In Islamabad, Pakistan, folks visiting a religious shrine find themselves meeting their maker sooner than they anticipated when a bomb propels 14 worshippers to the heavens sooner than any of them planned while wounding numerous others.  Elsewhere, protests begin erupting around the Middle East once word that U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq have desecrated the Holy Quran on Muslim soil no less.
  57. 2006 Saturday: A massive earthquake slams Java in Indonesia, killing at least 6,600 people and wounding countless others as well as leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.  Elsewhere, the gay pride folks once again take to the streets of Moscow, trying to get that country to enter into the 21st century but it goes awry as usual.  Mayor Yuri Luzhkov announced that ‘homosexuality is unnatural’ and banned the long-anticipated gay rights parade.  This led to the police taking to the streets, beating, and arresting people- including members of the European Parliament.  Russia does not want this and the more you push it the more violent the outcome is going to be.  Maybe things will be better next year.
  58. 2007 Sunday: Some places you can get away with stuff and in others you cannot: after the Moscow mayor- Yuri Luzhkov- just like last year banned a gay pride event and parade in his city, apparently the participants failed to get the message, Moscow police go out and beat up Russian gay rights activists and foreign dignitaries who came to celebrate a change in Russia (or so they thought).  (Note- there aren’t going to be any changes in Russia anytime soon).
  59. 2008 Tuesday: Problems are going on between the Argentine government and grain farmers.  The problems are over the prices the farmers get when they sell their grain for export and since there is no answer to this problem, the farmers announce all sales will HALT between May 28 and June 2.  Let us hope there is an end to this crisis.
  60. 2009 Wednesday: In Lahore, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ carry out another suicide bombing that delivers 35 True Believers up to Allah sooner than any of them had planned and injures at least 250 other poor souls.  WTF!   Meanwhile, in an extremely curious move, Russia agrees to supply U.S. civilian nuclear reactors with $1 billion worth of uranium.
  61. 2010 Thursday: The Israeli government calls the ambassadors of several nations- Sweden, Cyprus, Ireland, Greece, and Turkey- on the carpet for launching a flotilla of ‘aid’ to the Gaza Strip, a territory the Israelis have kept under blockade for the past three years due to their terrorist operations against their country.  These countries compiled a ‘fleet’ of eight ships- four of which were cargo ships carrying ‘supplies’ to the Palestinians as well as a ferry trundling down the coast from Turkey carrying 600 people.  The Israelis don’t deserve this crap.  It is a clash of civilizations- Israel representing civilization and the Palestinians representing barbarism.
  62. 2011 Friday: Prime Minister David Cameron confirms that the United Kingdom is sending Apache attack helicopters to help the Libyan rebels in their attempt to overthrow Dictator Moammar Gaddafi.  Meanwhile- California Burning: a massive wildfire in the surrounding hills above Lake Isabella, Kern County, forces residents to flee via the three available avenues out of the area.  The California drought has depleted the massive reservoir.
  63. 2012 Sunday: Following some controversial remarks, Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, suffers accusations of “insulting the Greek people.”   Elsewhere, Vladimir Putin’s hired thugs disguised as ‘protesters’ take to the streets in Tbilisi, Georgia, demanding the ouster of the duly-elected government of Mikhail Saakashvili.    
  64. 2013 Monday: Scientists in Canada bring 400-year-old bryophyte specimens left behind by retreating glaciers during the Ice Age back to life.  Elsewhere, the European Union decided to lift an arms embargo on the Syrian opposition while maintaining all other sanctions against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator John McCain, R-Arizona, a proponent of arming Syrian rebels (without knowing who the f**k they are), quietly slipped into Syria for a meeting with anti-government forces.       
  65. 2014 Tuesday: President Barack Obama plans to keep 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan through the end of 2015 and then reduce this number over the following two years to a small force; the troops will train Afghan forces and conduct counterterrorism operations.  However, while giving a press conference at Baghram Air Base in Afghanistan, the White House, i.e., President Obama, ‘accidentally leaks’ the name of the top CIA intelligence officer in that country and even worse, he does it before 6,000 assembled journalists.  WTF, President O?  When ‘Scooter’ Libby ‘accidentally’ spilled the name of Valerie Plame, he went to federal prison.
  66. 2015 Wednesday: According to Brainy History, the federal government approves commercial space company SpaceX as a contractor to the U.S. military for satellite launches; SpaceX will compete for contracts against the Boeing-Lockheed Martin United Launch Alliance, currently the primary military launch provider.  Elsewhere, former Senator Rick Santorum, RINO-PA, announces he will be running for 2016 presidential nomination of the Republican Party.  Uh, okay. 
  67. 2016 Friday: Longtime bassist with the soul-funk-rock band, The Ohio Players[iii]—Marshall “Rock” Jones—died on this date in Houston, Texas; he was 75 years-old.  Elsewhere, Iranian morality police scoop up at least 30 college students who had the chutzpah to attend a co-ed graduation party.  The penalty for their crimes?  Ninety-nine lashes.  Wow.  Can’t have the sexes mingling now, can we?  Barbarism folks, plain, simple barbarism.
  68. 2017 Saturday: Gregg Allman, famed lead singer of the Macon, Ga., rock band, the Allman Brothers[iv], died at his home in Richmond Hill, Georgia, on this date due to the ill effects of liver disease.  Elsewhere, at Taormina, Italy, the 43rd G7 summit sputters to an end as every leader save for President Donald J. Trump votes to uphold the NON-BINDING Paris Climate Accord.  Of course, the BBC and American liberals began wailing about ‘climate change denial’ when in truth, there is NO evidence that it exists or does not exist.  The planet is in a constant state of flux and anyone who says otherwise simply does not accept the PROVEN science.  Climate change for former committed communists is the easiest way to force totalitarianism upon an unsuspecting population.
  69. 2018 Sunday: Problems continue erupting across Brazil as workers at the state-owned petroleum company- Petrobras- join the ongoing teamsters strike.  Elsewhere, the Israelis announce they will be building a ‘unique deterrent’ to Palestinians boarding ships and sneaking into Israel by sailing around land barriers and landing on their beaches.  The new obstacles will be three stories high and will be constructed of stone and defensive fencing which will prevent jihadists crossing from Gaza getting into Israel and causing problems.  Destroy the vermin.   (Note- the U.S. requires something like this on the Mexican border by San Diego, California).
  70. 2019 Monday: A new global study that investigated 711 rivers around the world finds that many of them are polluted with antibiotics and other medicines either flushed down the toilet or tossed into them for disposal.  Elsewhere, Reuters reports a horrifying story that in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, prison officials in several different jails discovered the corpses of at least 42 inmates strangled to death.  This followed on the heels of yesterday’s deaths of 15 gangbanging thugs in the state capital’s prison.  The violence appears to be spreading like a cancer.
  71. 2020 Wednesday: Sadly, America’s first attempt in nine years at putting astronauts back into space is scrubbed due to electrical storms raging in parts of Florida.  Saturday is the next date.  Astronauts Bob Bacon and Doug Hurley were aboard the Falcon 9 rocket provided by Space X.  Waiting aboard the Dragon Crew Capsule for their 19-hour trip to the International Space Station for over an hour, the duo learned the flight was postponed due to safety reasons.  We will be there Saturday.
  72. 2020 Wednesday A: The Chinese-created COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Virus continues causing problems and some scientists now say the virus is engineered ‘perfectly’ in that it can morph into variations that a normal virus could not.  Thank you, communist China, but the AICPENDBLOG.COM believed from the beginning that the Wuhan Flu’s appearance was too ‘coincidental’ to show up shortly after the communist Chinese lower-level signatories to the U.S.-China Trade Deal.  That is not right.  Here are the statistics for today for the world: 5,651,806 confirmed cases, 353,246 confirmed deaths, and 2,325,989 confirmed recoveries. 
  73. 2020 Wednesday B: In the United States, we have 1,730,136 confirmed cases, 101,356 confirmed deaths, and 369,460 confirmed recoveries.  It is important to note that recoveries would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics with the disease.  To us, this demonstrates evidence of the COLLUSION between communist China and the Democratic Party, something that must be investigated if the American people are ever to learn the truth.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the statistics, California first: 98,980 confirmed cases, 3,884 confirmed deaths, BUT ZERO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which confirms for us that Governor Gavin Newsom is doing nothing but playing politics.  In Hawaii, here are the numbers: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the socialist non-paradise of Washington state, here are the stats: 20,181 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  (It is interesting to note that Chef Vladimir says that prior to mail-in ballots in the state became the norm, the state was a reliable RED in every election as it will be again when people return to voting in the normal way).
  74. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 169,616,816 confirmed cases, +537,668, 3,524,509 confirmed deaths, +11,643 and 151,459,161 confirmed recoveries, +65,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,999,680 confirmed cases, UP 24,393 from yesterday’s reporting, 607,726 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[v] and 27,701,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,832.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]  
  75. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 289,779 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 169,830 deaths  
  76. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,786,604 confirmed cases, 63,161 confirmed deaths, and 2,024,029 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,318,480 confirmed cases, 36,733 confirmed deaths, and 1,939,437 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,032 confirmed cases, 498 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 436,124 confirmed cases, 5,814 confirmed deaths, and 212,224 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Michigan: they have 990,638 confirmed cases, 20,301 confirmed deaths, and 791,206 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  77. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,420 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,599 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Finland, a former ally of Nazi Germany during World War II: 92,062 cases of the virus, 946 confirmed deaths and 46,000 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  78. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,464.64, UP 141.59 points (+0.41%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,736.28, DOWN 1.72 points (-0.013%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,200.88, UP 4.89 points (+0.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $67.13 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.30 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.86 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,180.60 per troy oz, +1.50 (+0.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.66 per pound, 0.00 (-0.05%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,808.10 per troy oz, +2.96 (+0.11%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $22,750.00 per troy oz., -50.00 (-0.22%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.     In Botswana Pula, one greenback equals 10.58 and in Brazilian Real, a buck equals 5.24 and in Brunei Dollar, one dollar equals 1.32 of theirs.[xii]   In other business news, Bayer’s stocks take a tumble as a federal judge refuses to toss the ongoing lawsuit against Roundup which is under their umbrella of products.   
  79. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.175 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.927 in Hawaii, and $3.565 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Alaska: $3.320.  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- Belarus: $2.928 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,337,169,021,764 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  Regarding gasoline prices, economists believe that higher gas prices won’t affect travel on Memorial Day.
  80. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the so-called ‘border czar’ now for 66 days and NO one has seen her anywhere near the U.S.-Mexican border.  Speaking of the border disaster, One America News shared some updated statistics on just how dreadful things are at the border.  The costs of caring for the massive number of illegal aliens to the American people today is $584,855,552.  Next, the total cost of caring for these frigging illegal aliens for calendar year 2021 is $160,584,892,416.  The number of known illegals to have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border this year is 1,645,866 while the total number of illegals lurking within the shadows of the United States is 35,645,864.   (Note- we have long said the total number of illegals in the U.S. is between 35-50 million.  It would appear that One America News is backing us up on this number).  
  81. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The New York Times is praising Democrats’ silence on the disastrous mess along the southern border.  Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers were denied access to a DEA facility near El Paso, Texas, by the goons doing the bidding of the Biden regime.  Elsewhere, Rep. Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says, ‘states are playing shell games with illegal alien payments given them by the feds.’   Next, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says the border problem is not helped by ‘Facebook running ads for Mexican cartels.’
  82. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– News reports claim a Russian naval intelligence ship is sailing in the waters just off the coast of Hawaii.  Nothing to see here, folks.  (Yeah, right).  Next, in Iran, the third time in a week a chemical plant housing a nuclear reactor blew up killing one person outright and wounding another two.  Who would do such a dastardly thing, or did it happen because the Iranians are morons?  We await the final word on this event.   Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘external forces are seeking to damage the U.S.-Colombia relationship.’  (Note- most likely those forces are next door in Venezuela).  Moving on, Hong Kong might throw away loads of Chi-Vi vaccines citing citizens’ mistrust in both the former British crown colony’s and mainland China’s governments as well as the ongoing swirling misinformation about both the vaccines and the disease.[xvi]  Finally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad won a historic fourth term as dictator, uh, president, in a landslide election.  Wow.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Speaking of COVID, Dr. Marty Makary says that ‘half of non-vaccinated Americans are immune to COVID-19’ and that ‘health officials relied more on government mandates than on the science.’  Meanwhile, while Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci continues obfuscating, sputtering, and stammering about his friends, the Chi-Coms’ responsibility in infecting the entire world, Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says, ‘it’s laughable’ for Dr. Fauci to ‘plead ignorance’ over what his pals at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were up to in the lab.  Elsewhere, we learn from a recent study that people who have had mild COVID-19 infections can gain lifelong immunity.  (Note- speaking of ‘Phony Tony,’ he says the vaccine will be available for young kids by the end of 2021; we ain’t giving it to our kids when 99.98-percent of young kids survive the crap).
  84. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  In a Newark, New Jersey, federal courtroom, 26-year-old letter carrier Nicolas Beauchene pleaded guilty to one count of ‘desertion of mail.’  The punk admitted to destroying 99 2020 Election ballots as well as another 2,000 pieces of mail.  And bit by bit by bit, the dominoes continue falling.  We will see a change in the outcome of the 2020 Elections.  Count on it.  (Note- in other curious news regarding the U.S. Postal Service, we continue hearing more and more that the USPS is spying on the social media of the American people under order from the Joe Biden regime.  WTF?)
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been leading infrastructure talks with Congress and not flipping ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Yet another sign the senile old fool is not calling the shots.   Next, former 71st U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence “Larry” Summers, Democrat, says that Joe Biden’s stimulus plan will lead to rising inflation, inflation current Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, seems to be encouraging via increased government spending.  In other regime news, Joe Biden lifts ALL sanctions on the Russkies so they can now proceed with the construction of the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea to Germany- and they called Donald J. Trump a ‘Russian stooge!’  Joe Biden is a stooge of the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and even the rat-eating Iranians.  This scumbag must be evicted from office NOW.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II– Speaking of being a stooge of the Chi-Coms, Joe Biden is pushing a flipping $6 trillion federal budget for the next fiscal year.  All this money will come from the Chi-Coms.  Next, according to sources, the Biden regime is denying help to U.S. diplomats dealing with the so-called ‘Havana syndrome,’ the one in which microwaves of unknown origin are harming our overseas diplomats which is indeed an act of war upon the United States.  Meanwhile, the regime has not even looked at page 1 of the GOP $928 billion infrastructure offer, one Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says the GOP is willing to increase.  Finally, the regime dismisses the GOP’s plan for distribution of COVID-19 relief funds.  What’s up with the Biden regime.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden Regime News III– The lying POS Joe Biden has trotted up to Capitol Hill to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives- the ATF- David Chipman is being blasted by Republicans over his whacked-out stance on guns, gun control, and his whacked out ideas of arresting legal owners of AR-15 rifles while saying nothing about Hunter Biden[xvii] lying on his FBI background check and whether he would issue an arrest warrant for the scumbag should be become the next ATF director.  In other news favorable to the regime, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, introduces a bill to treble the budget of the Internal Revenue Service.   Music to the Bidenistas’ ears.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Well-known conservative commentator Todd Starnes shared a story about Hillsdale High School valedictorian Elizabeth Turner who was told by principal Amy Goldsmith she could not mention or reference to God Who is extremely important in her life.  After lawyers entered the fray, the courts overruled the principal, and her speech can continue as written at the graduation ceremonies.   Next, Facebook says it will NO longer censor posts pointing the finger at the Chi-Coms for making this pandemic in the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s laboratory.
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Political News I– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, is on the way out because the state’s largest labor union- the SEIU- has abandoned him to his fate and is calling for him to go.  NOW.  Next, after repeated death threats against Mike Lindell of My Pillow, a court rules that the manufacturer’s address can be kept secret while the Dominion Voting Systems’ fraudulent lawsuit against him continues.  They are claiming their product is as clean as the wind-driven snow.  (Note- everyone knows that Dominion is a corrupt, evil company that sells election outcomes to the highest bidder.  IF their home country of Canada won’t use their products, what does that say about the honesty of the company or its products?  Answer: NOT MUCH).
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Political News II– Today, we learned three Democratic members of Congress- Steve “Bucket O’ Fried Chicken” Cohen, DS-TN 9th congressional district, Barbara “Blacktivist” Lee, DS-CA 13th congressional district, and Bobby “Black Panther” Rush, DS-IL 1st congressional district, hosted a tete a tete in which former Black Panther convicted murderers were featured guests.  This event occurred on May 10, 2021.  Next, Los Angeles Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti is going to be the next U.S. ambassador to India which is good because he would never win re-election.  Speaking of ambassadorships, failed Senator Claire McCaskill, DS-MO, who lost in a landslide to now-Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a couple of election cycles ago also stands in line for an ambassadorship somewhere in Europe.  Hmmm, maybe Albania?  Finally, California continues hemorrhaging population as people continue fleeing for better environs.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News III– Lily Batchelder- Joe Biden’s nominee to be Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy under Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen so far is flying under the radar in her confirmation hearings- so says Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax TV.  She believes that Americans must be taxed on FUTURE INCOME and that taxation should vary via (1) race (2) gender (3) education (4) age (5) education and IQ (6) zip code and (7) behavioral profile.  This woman should NOT be confirmed.  Period.  In other political news, President Donald J. Trump says he plans to run a third time in 2024- provided he remains in good health.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he and personal attorney- and ‘America’s Mayor’- Rudy Giuliani have asked a judge to toss the Capitol Hill Riots 01-06-2021 lawsuit dimwitted Democrats launched against them.  We concur.  Toss it.   The 45th president also said of his administration compared to the Biden regime, the ‘U.S. was energy independent whereas now- it’s not- thanks to Biden’s policies.’  Finally, famed Democratic strategist James Carville said of his own party that there’s too much ‘arrogance’ and ‘urban smugness’ running the show.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Political News IV– Former Obama era employee Christine Wormuth received unanimous confirmation in the U.S. Senate to become the first female U.S. Secretary of the Army.  Congratulations.  Elsewhere, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, offered an amendment to a bill being debated that would forbid ‘gain of function’ experiments by medical scientists seeking to amplify the effects of already-dangerous viruses.  He received unanimous consent for his amendment.  Excellent.
  93. 2021 Thursday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Protesters going against a Washington abortion clinic have been granted more access in which to protest the Pro-Death Movement by a judge.  Meanwhile, down in Texas, the Lone Star State’s Senate has passed a so-called ‘trigger bill’ that will kick in IF Roe v. Wade is overturned.  Should it kick in, it will criminalize all abortion providers with lengthy prison sentences for the murder and dismemberment of the unborn.  Excellent.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: Miscellaneous News I– Clay Travis and Buck Sexton will be taking over Rush Limbaugh’s time slot.   Next, the Oscars will once again allow films on streaming services to compete for honors.  Meanwhile, the International Olympic Committee disputes a recent report that says that ‘even if Japan refuses to host the Olympics due to the Chi-Vi, the Olympics will STILL go on.’  Who will hold them?  Oildale, California?  Finally, last evening three Texas cops were shot during a 10-hour SWAT standoff.  The officers will recover, and the POS shooter is in custody.  
  95. 2022 Friday: Stick around and discover the news of the day along with all of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys is an interesting albeit an odd one.  “Stack-o-Tracks” came out on August 19, 1968 and did something NO other band of which we know and revere at the time as it was ALL INSTRUMENTAL and came with the music sheets and lyrics among other things.  Thus, we have all the BACKING TRACKS to 15 of their earlier and biggest tunes all in one place.  If you can find this oddity, seek it out as it would make for a glorious Karaoke night at the neighborhood watering hole.  Great stuff by a much-beloved band.  Seek it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

As we said yesterday, manager and father Murray Wilson was keeping the Beach Boys at a frenetic pace.  The band’s fourth album, “Little Deuce Coupe,” came out on October 07, 1963, and was a repackaging of sorts of the band’s hot rod songs plus loads of other new tunes.  Brian Wilson was writing at a lightning pace and the tunes were all great to be sure.  Featured here are “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Be True to Your School,” “Shut Down,” “Spirit of America,” and “A Young Man is Gone.”  The band features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and Alan Jardine (rhythm guitar and vocals), a neighborhood friend like Marks.  This is a wonderful album one we know everyone is going to enjoy so zip on out and add this one to your collection- we think you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[ii] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

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

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

[v] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

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

[vii] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[viii] See earlier footnote.

[ix] In late 2019- early 2020, the World Health Organization says the COVID-19 strain of this Chinese-engineered POS disease was NOT transmissible between human beings…until it was.

[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] Late in the afternoon- and this is a good one- Newsmax ran a Chiron crawl that said, “The Biden administration, (i.e., the regime), is ordering construction on the border wall to begin again.”  Say what?  We cannot believe that mixed-up, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, drooling old Joe Biden has reordered construction on the wall again.  Say what?

[xxii] Interestingly enough, while lunatic members among the House Democrats continue calling for an end of Israel, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi came out and blasted Hamas, the POS terrorist organization that needs to be eliminated from the face of the planet.  Wow.  Didn’t know “Mumbles” had it in her; still, once the AOC Suicide Squad begins tuning “Mumbles” up, she may very well reverse her statement.

[xxiii] President Donald J. Trump released a statement today in which he said he expects to see Liz Cheney become the next paid commentator on CNN or MSNBC.  She will be removed from office in the primary race next year in Wyoming.

[xxiv] Not sure when we will do the music of Jay-Z.

[xxv] We hope to do the music of the Go-Gos one day.  They were awesome.

[xxvi] We hope to do the Foo Fighters when we do Soundgarden, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and maybe even Korn.

[xxvii] Not sure as to when we will do Carole King?  Perhaps in 20 years or so.

[xxviii] We definitely want to do the music of Todd Rundgren and Nazz as well as Aerosmith.

[xxix] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner one day. Maybe she will be included as a solo act.

[xxx] For the hell of it, we may be doing the music of the Monkees sooner- these guys deserve it.

  62. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,974 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 181,635 deaths.      
  63. 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: 3,761,724 confirmed cases, 62,357 confirmed deaths, and 2,005,443 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,275,365 confirmed cases, 35,849 confirmed deaths, and 1,859,688 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,329 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 418,071 confirmed cases, 5,642 confirmed deaths, and 203,349 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., American Samoa, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, Virgin Islands, and the Northern Marianas Islands become states: they have 4 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 1 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]   
  64. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,000 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,738 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Kenya, the birthplace of the United States’ 44th ‘president’ Barack Hussein Obama: 163,976 cases of the virus, 2,928 confirmed deaths and 113,057 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]     
  65. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,216.69, DOWN 473.66 points (-1.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,389.43, DOWN 12.43 points (-0.093%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,152.10, DOWN 36.33 points (-0.87%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.46 per barrel, +0.15 (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,837.20 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.03%) while the price of SILVER is $27.71 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.16%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,241.60 per troy oz, +0.40 (+0.03%) while the price of COPPER is $4.79 per pound, 0.00 (+0.63%).[xv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,938.34 per troy oz, -21.25 (-0.72%).[xvi] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-1.73%).[xvii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.43 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.96. In Solomon Islands Dollar, one greenback equals 7.9957 and in Somali Schilling, a buck equals 575.00 and in South African Rand, one dollar equals 13.99 of theirs.[xviii]      The reason as to WHY Wall Street had such a down cycle today is due to fears of oncoming rampant inflation thanks to the inabilities of the Biden regime to continue the Trump economic miracle.  The Bidenistas will bring about a new Great Depression- mark our words.  Businesses are raising prices at the highest rates since the 1980s.   In other news, cryptocurrencies value is higher than that of the U.S. dollar.
  66. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.107 per gallon, $2.877 in Florida, $3.833 in Hawaii, and $3.518 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Rhode Island: $2.894.  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- Bolivia: $2.045 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,274,850,063,528 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Untermensch in Gaza Strip continue attacking Israel, enfeebled old Joe Biden finds himself under assault from both the right and left.  The right wants Israel supported and defended while the left wants to see Israel destroyed.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day stands with Israel to a member.  We say use the neutron bomb on the human scum inhabiting the Gaza Strip and then reclaim the land for Israel.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore says that ‘Joe Biden’s unemployment benefits are keeping Americans out of the workforce.’  Amen.  Regarding the abandonment of Israel by the fraudulent Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump says that ‘Biden’s weakness is causing the massive surge in violence across the Middle East.’  Amen to that, too.   
  68. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News II– In other fascinating news, WOKE leftists are jumping on Andrew Yang for announcing his support for Israel.  And the left eats its own.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is sending out ‘signed letters’ to recipients of COVID-19 relief checks.  Big whoop.  Stick the letters where the sun don’t shine Mr. (Bogus) President.   Finally, new rules coming out of the Biden regime would force doctors and other medical professionals to enable those suffering from gender dysphoria to undergo whatever treatments and irreversible processes they demand.  (Note- while I hate to say this, I am beginning to think that Joe Biden could very well be the Antichrist- Olaf).
  69. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Chile- a nation with a high rate of vaccination against the Chi-Vi is currently experiencing a tidal wave of new Bat Fu Yuk cases thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, a key officer at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says that ‘annual booster shots may be required against the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the China Virus, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the ‘VID.  No thank you, we are not getting the vaccinations no matter what.  Elsewhere, analysis by the New York Times shows that the extremely overcautious Centers for Disease Control are sowing mass confusion over the danger of the Wuhan Flu.   Finally, Missouri and Tennessee are joining other states slashing Chi-Vi relief payments to their citizens.  It’s time for these people to return to work.  Now.
  70. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– In Russia, at least seven are dead in a school shooting in that country.  The police have apprehended the suspect.   Next, the Siberian doctor who treated Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny has mysteriously disappeared.   Next, left-wing lawmakers in the U.S. (you know the scum) are screeching about ‘Israel’s brutality’ in defending itself from the 130 or so rockets fired into Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.  You know our feelings on the topic.  Elsewhere, Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says that Iran is trying to cause problems in the Straits of Hormuz by swamping U.S. Navy and Coast Guard assets with swift boats.’  We say, ‘sink these riffraff scumbags.’
  71. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– The Vatican warns U.S. bishops NOT to deny drooling old Joe Biden communion.  (Note- we know where Pope Francis stands which is why many Catholics are abandoning the church.  The man’s a Marxist and one cannot serve Marx and God simultaneously.  Olaf).   Next, the new White House deputy director for political strategy and outreach- Natalie Montelongo- says, ‘ICE does not have to exist.’  Next, a new poll says that almost two-thirds of Americans believe social media platforms are ripping our country asunder.   Elsewhere, Caitlyn Jenner, running for the governor’s job in California chose to golf on Election Day rather than to cast a vote for President Donald J. Trump.  Hence why we like John Cox.
  72. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, and other members of the GOP are calling for a new probe into the shootings that occurred at the baseball field a few years back when an enraged Bernie Sanders supporter shot several people and either seriously wounded or killed them before being shot and killed by Capitol Hill Police officers.  After all, a week or two ago, FBI Director Chris Wray announced the verdict of ‘suicide by cop.’  Wow.
  73. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In Georgia, prosecutors are going to seek the death penalty against the sex-addicted POS who shot up a pair of Asian massage (brothel) parlors killing eight people, six of whom were Asian women whom the left then leapt atop as a symbol of anti-Asian hate ginned up by the China Virus.   Good.  Convict and execute that punk.  Next, in related legal news, the reason for the divorce between Bill and Melinda Gates is because back in 2019, Melinda was upset that hubby Bill was too close to Jeffrey Epstein, the pervert and pedophile.  We’d throw the guy out, too.  Elsewhere, in other legal news, New York state is celebrating a big victory as a court in the Empire State has thrown out the bankruptcy filings by the National Rifle Association.  Finally, trainer Bob Baffert of the Kentucky Derby winner, Medina Spirit, claims that an ointment he used on the horse may have caused its ‘positive’ for doping.  The investigation continues.
  74. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– Now that Great Britain is going to require photo IDs to vote, President Donald J. Trump points out the obvious that so, too, should the United States.  Of course, to leftists, photo IDs are RACIST.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he is supporting Glenn Youngkin, the GOP candidate for Virginia governor, in the upcoming election.   Another stalwart candidate in upstate New York- Sheriff Mike Carpinelli- is putting his hat into the ring to replace that angry moron, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  We hope he can beat that POS.   Elsewhere, the ex-Capitol Hill Police Chief Steven Sund defended his performance on January 06, 2021, the day of the largest FALSE FLAG POLITICAL OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES and said he feared the ‘appearance of a coup d’ êtat.’   Finally, Wisconsin is considering a law making it mandatory to play the National Anthem in every public venue.
  75. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the BORDER CZAR now for 49 days and has yet to take her butt down to the southern border.  What the hell is up with that?
  76. 2021 Tuesday O: Environmental News I– Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, has extended the drought declaration to 41 counties.  It is sad that the state continues allowing fresh water to flow out to the Pacific Ocean rather than confining it behind the walls of new dams.   Meanwhile, the feds have approved the building of the first offshore wind farms.  Elsewhere, in a blow to the Green Meanies, a new report says that temperatures so far in 2021 are far lower than they have been in recent years.  Not good for idiots such as the ‘Squad’ and their push for the Green New Deal.  A win for us.
  77. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1658 with a $402 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 07, 08, 20, 36, 39 and Mega 22.  Out of 163,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $10,622 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys’ third album, “Surfer Girl,” released on September 16, 1963, was their greatest to date yet spawning numerous hits.  The band’s lineup was the same- Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals)- but Marks would be leaving soon.  The group knocked out a load of hits on this record- the title track to be sure but also “Catch a Wave,” “Little Deuce Coupe,” “In My Room,” and “Hawaii.”  Brian Wilson was having to write at a much more furious pace what with the emphasis being on hits.  Father Murray Wilson, the group’s manager, kept them on a tight schedule of writing, recording, and performing, raking in as much money as was humanly possible and then some.  Great music to be sure, music we hope you will check out and enjoy because the Beach Boys are one of the all-time great American groups to be sure.
