171. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JUNE 20, 2022

2008 Friday: Like poor Tibet, Nepal also is coming under the sway of the Chi-Coms which leads to massive protests in front of the Chi-Com embassy. At least 700 Tibetans were there among the crowd, all of whom were arrested with three being slapped with charges of ‘anti-Chi-Com activities.’ Folks, who runs Nepal? The government of that nation or Beijing? The world knows the answer.

  25. 1923 Wednesday: France announced it would seize the Rhineland to help Germany pay its debts from World War I.  This would be yet another massive slap in the face to the German people that would open their ears to the song of Adolf Hitler.  Stupid, stupid policy.

  28. 1941 Friday: The U.S. military replaced the Army Air Corps with the U.S. Army Air Forces.  In 1947, the military abolished the Air Corps by creating the United States Air Forces.  Elsewhere, the Germans and their Axis allies in Eastern Europe are preparing to launch the largest land invasion in the history of the world in two days.  Air crews are receiving their briefings, artillery targets are being registered, and the 1.5 million troops ready to cross the frontier into the Soviet Union are enjoying their final days of rest.  War is coming and the Soviets are dozing on the other side of the border.
  29. 1942 Saturday: The Afrika Korps conquers Tobruk in North Africa.  Meanwhile, Nazi Adolf Eichmann announces the deportation of Dutch Jews.  On the Eastern Front, heavy fighting continues around the Crimean fortress city of Sebastopol as German and Rumanian troops continue fighting to batter their way into the city.  Farther east, the road to Stalingrad is underway as the German spring and summer offensive is moving south with growing momentum.

  32. 1944 Tuesday: The Nazis begin the mass extermination of all Jews at Auschwitz Death Camp.  Meanwhile, the Allies are advancing on all fronts in Europe.  On the Leningrad Front, the Soviets are advancing while the Allies are advancing in France and Italy.  Fighting is fierce.  Elsewhere during World War II, Japanese naval forces retreated in the Battle of the Philippine Sea after suffering heavy losses to the American fleet.  On Saipan, American forces continue battering the Japanese defenders who cling tenaciously to every scrap of geography.  It is victory or it’s death for them.

  34. 1946 Thursday: The Big Four- the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union agree to begin the gradual withdrawal of Allied occupation forces from Italy.  The Soviets also agree to withdraw their troops from Bulgaria which although on the side of the Axis during World War II did not participate in Operation Barbarossa and also have traditionally been a Russian ally.  Still, they will be a part of the communist bloc.  It is what it is…

  58. 2009 Saturday: As the Arab Spring continues growing across the Muslim world, riot police in Tehran are finding their hands full with mobs of protesters demanding changes in their dictatorial regime.  This is ONE country that new President Barack Hussein Obama won’t provide help.  Elsewhere, jihadists near Kirkuk, Iraq, get lucky with a suicide bombing that propels 67 people up to commune with Allah far sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving at least another 200 in varying stages of suffering.  That’s the ‘religion of peace’ for you…
  59. 2010 Sunday: The Chicago Journal reports it’s been a busy weekend in President Barack Hussein Obama’s adopted hometown of the Windy City what with 40 people shot and seven of them dead.  Halfway across the world, similar issues are occurring in central Baghdad what with two car bombings ejecting at least 26 passersby up to meet with Allah sooner than any of them anticipated while leaving another 53 in varying stages of distress.
  60. 2011 Monday: The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers grants private companies the right to create new website domains and suffixes.  Elsewhere, the Anglican Church in England considers permitting openly gay clergy members to become bishops.  Well.  Elsewhere, sectarian clashes break out in East Belfast, Northern Ireland, leading to numerous people being trucked off to the hospital and others to the hoosegow.

  62. 2013 Thursday: Instagram offers its users the ability to upload videos to its service.  Elsewhere, the Committee on the Rights of the Child accuses E-V-I-L Israeli soldiers of torturing Palestinian children and using the poor little bastards as human shields.  (Note- what a crock of crap!).  Elsewhere, in the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 4 games to 3 by a final score of 95-88 successfully defending their title from the previous year.  Knuckle-dragging cretin LeBron James is declared the MVP for the second year in a row.
  63. 2014 Friday: Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko initiates a 7-day cease-fire, allowing troops to defend themselves but not to attack; during the cease-fire, separatists can turn in weapons and receive amnesty; so far, rebels have rejected the offer.  Elsewhere, the Obama administration rushes 300 U.S. troops to Iraq to help that government’s forces battle the ISIS thugs in the oil-refining city of Baiji.   Light these scum-sucking bastards UP.
  64. 2015 Saturday: After white racist Dylann Storm Roof murders nine African Americans at the church in South Carolina earlier in the week, mass protests break out demanding the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the grounds of the Capitol building.   Meanwhile, in southern Pakistan, a heat wave peaks killing at least 2,000 people from heat stroke and dehydration.   Elsewhere, in Japan, one-thousand female robots named “Pepper” sell out in under one minute at $1,600 per unit; so says creator SoftBank Robotics Corp.
  65. 2016 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court- noting that it has already reviewed other such bans on ‘assault weapons’ (ALL weapons are ‘assault weapons’ whether they be a gun or a screwdriver or even fists)- refuses to hear other states’ bans such as Connecticut and New York.  What we need is a universal permit to carry arms, both out in the open and concealed.  Cleansing the nation of ‘gun-free zones’ would also enhance the safety of every American.  Meanwhile, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees reports that the number is higher than ever what with endless wars, climate disasters, and economic impoverishment: 65.3 million people (which the Democrats want to bring to the U.S.)
  66. 2017 Tuesday: Following his arrest for driving under the influence, Tiger Woods checks into a rehab clinic to deal with his pain medication dependency and his ongoing sleep disorders.   Elsewhere, as outrage continues to grow over the death of 22-year-old American tourist Otto Warmbier at the hands of North Korean jailers, Young Pioneers Tours, the firm taking foreigners into the hellhole known as the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea says it ‘won’t be taking any other Americans into that godforsaken country as the risk is simply too high.’  (Note- if you remember, young Mr. Warmbier visited the nation, removed a poster from a hotel room wall for a souvenir and then underwent arrest, a bulls**t trial, imprisonment, and just before he died, Kim Jong Un sent his catatonic body home to his parents).
  67. 2018 Wednesday: Bowing to pressure from his political enemies and armies of wailing illegal aliens, President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order ending separation of families at the border, a policy that began under the previous administration but which no one conveniently remembers.   Meanwhile (and this is a good one!), the Chi-Coms express their regrets that the United States is withdrawing from the bulls**t U.N. Human Rights Council.  With dictators, thugs, criminals, and communists making up its membership, the organization is little more than a joke.
  68. 2019 Thursday: Leader of communist China, Xi Jinping, travels to North Korea to visit with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, the first Chinese leader to travel to the S-hole country in 14 years.  In other news, the Iranians commit an overt act of war when their military shoots down a U.S. surveillance drone which they claim trespassed into their airspace.  Almost immediately, the military-industrial-political complex in the United States as well as Democrats and pro-war RINOs begin banging the drum for President Donald J. Trump to launch yet another unnecessary Middle Eastern war.  Wow.
  69. 2020 Saturday: President Donald J. Trump kicked off his official 2020 re-election bid with a massive rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  What a barn burner, he seems unstoppable.  Moving on, here are today’s stats for the Xi Jinping special Wuhan bat flu virus, first the globe: 8,546,919 confirmed cases, 456,726 confirmed deaths, and 4,195,274 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,295,615 confirmed cases, 121,441 confirmed deaths, and 714,961 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day possesses chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 169,309 confirmed cases, 5,424 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 762 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 640 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for the CHOP state, Washington: 28,163 confirmed cases, 1,265 confirmed deaths, but sadly, like California, moron Gov. Jay Inslee will NOT REPORT the number of confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Saturday A: Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sissi warns Ankara, Turkey, that IF Turkish backed Libyan thugs attack Sirte, the Egyptian army would immediately strike out and destroy the Libyan rebels causing problems in their next-door neighbor.  The Turkish president had no clue as to what to say when faced with a genuinely formidable threat and so remained silent.  Good for you, President al-Sissi!
  71. 2020 Saturday B: In House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s hometown of California, a violent mob of leftist ‘protesters’ tore down a statue of General (and President) Ulysses S. Grant.  Unbeknownst to these ignorant Black Lives Matter and Antifa trash rioters, Grant was the guiding military light of the Civil War on the northern side.  He freed slaves and was a strong proponent of recruiting newly freed blacks to serve in the Union army.  It is clear that these so-called ‘protesters’ are not about fighting for civil rights but are Marxists-Leninists in need of immediate extermination.  Time for good Americans to stand up and begin fighting back against this communist scum.  This is what we will get if “Pro-China Joe” Biden wins the White House in November.  VOTE TRUMP!
  72. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 178,960,779 confirmed cases, +14,417, 3,875,601 confirmed deaths, +8,968 and 163,779,820 confirmed recoveries, +386,650.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,401,712 confirmed cases, UP 8,542 from yesterday’s reporting, 617,083 confirmed deaths, UP 166, [xiii] and 28,694,843 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,439.  We genuinely appreciate 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 299,177 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 160,472 deaths

  77. 2021 Sunday 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 $4.229 per gallon, $2.947 in Florida, $3.987 in Hawaii, and $3.633 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let’s look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.880.  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- Argentina: $3.833 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,429,862,051,238 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  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 Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxiv]
  78. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day #89 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of America’s number one problem and to have yet shown up for a single day on the job.  Ah, well, Benny Johnson of Newsmax says that Customs and Border Patrol has arrested numerous terrorists on the terrorist watchlist as well as all sorts of criminals- especially sexual criminals- and yet more continue coming.  In other news we believe is related to the border, a Houston deputy’s home was invaded in a pre-dawn assault and his wife and 4-year-old stepdaughter shot and seriously wounded by unknown perps.  A week or so ago, news appeared that said the cartels were going to target the homes and families of Lone Star State law enforcement officers.   Thank you, Joe “F**king” Biden.
  79. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the mess, Rep. August Pfluger, R-TX 11th congressional district, says that ‘illegal aliens are overrunning the 29 inland counties he represents.’  (Note- we urge Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, to put former Sheriff Joe Arpaio in charge of all holding pens for the illegal aliens).  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, is seeking to join Florida and Idaho in sending law enforcement to help aid Arizona and Texas in repelling the illegal alien invasion.  Good.  Every RED STATE governor must send troops to defend the country.  This is akin to the emergency that surrounded the Alamo, only this time, the GOOD GUYS are NOT going to lose to the barbarians.
  80. 2021 Sunday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett says the ‘world powers must wake up to the dangers of the Iran nuclear deal.’

  84. 2021 Sunday L: Economic News– Economist Stephen Moore says that the Federal Reserve is way behind the curve on rising inflation which some experts claim is at or near 12-percent.  This is a tax on EVERYONE including those least equipped to pay for it.
  85. 2022 Monday: Folks, today is Sunday, Father’s Day Sunday, let’s hope it’s a slow news day as all the baby mamas will bring all their bastard brats to meet their daddies doing time in America’s hoosegows, today.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album came out on June 12, 1983: “Rarities.”  Sooner or later, every band still performing who began in the early 1960s compiled a collection of so-called ‘rarities,’ thus we have this fabulous compendium of surf, sun, and fun music.  So, what do we have here?  Well, we begin with the Lennon-McCartney classic, “With a Little Help from My Friends,” followed by the Box Tops classic, “The Letter.”  After that, we have an alternate take of Stevie Wonder’s “I Was Made to Love Her,” followed by Brian Wilson’s “You’re Welcome.”  After that, we have “The Lord’s Prayer,” followed by “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” an alternate take, followed by a Dennis Wilson-penned tune, “Celebrate the News.”  We have an alternate version of “Good Vibrations” and gobs of other glorious tunes all lovingly compiled from the archives of this legendary group such as “Land Ahoy,” a live version of “All I Want to Do,” and several other unique and enjoyable cuts.  Seek this one out and add it to your daily playlist of the absolute best in summertime music.  You will be glad you did.

  58. 2007 Thursday: As the Iraq War continues to drone on and on and on, the Out-of-Iraq Caucus in the U.S. Congress finds themselves worked into a corner.  They planned to vote against a $124 billion military funding bill that would send more money to both the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on the promise the country would find a way with which to remove the U.S. from these endless meatgrinder wars.  Good luck with that.
  59. 2008 Saturday: In Rome, an amazing incident occurs when Pope Benedict XVI baptizes Madgi Allam, the most well-known Muslim cleric in all of Italy.  Allam has decided to turn his back on Islam and become a Roman Catholic.  Will riots break out around the world?  Events such as this usually cause such mayhem.
  60. 2009 Sunday: After a prolonged period of unrest, Mt. Redoubt, an Alaskan volcano commences erupting.  Elsewhere, in the United States, newbie President Barack Hussein Obama is seeking a strategy with which to extradite the United States from the continuous war in Afghanistan.  Good luck with that, sir.  President Obama tells the American people that the Bush-Cheney policies have made the world less-safe.  We concur, the world is a much more dangerous place due to all these regime-change wars neocons love to launch.
  61. 2010 Monday: In a big to-do for the Obama administration, President Obama will be signing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA or more well-known ACA- into law.  The Republicans are preparing to file a bill with which to repeal it if it does become law, but this BS from the GOP would continue until well after Donald J. Trump became president in early 2017.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: Governor Dennis Daugaard, Republican -South Dakota, signs an abortion bill that requires women to wait 72 hours before undergoing the procedure and to receive counseling.  Meanwhile, Hall of Famer NFL player Lawrence Taylor pleads guilty to misdemeanor sexual assault and receives a sentence of six years-probation.

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

55. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 2022

2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana. The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries. Good, let them be the guinea pigs.

  61. 2017 Friday: J.C. Penney- the company that set the standard for commercial retail stores- announces that it’s going to close between 120 to 130 stores as well as two distribution centers.   The store has made poor decisions by bringing in younger, more hip leaders in the organization that have trashed the brand and ruined the legacy of its founder.

Billy Graham arrived at the library bearing his name in Charlotte, N.C., where he would lie in repose for two days.  Meanwhile, at the Winter Olympics in South Korea, American men won the gold medal in curling in a decisive upset of Sweden; it was only the second curling medal in U.S. history.  (Editor’s note: curling is a bullshit sport).  Finally, in the aftermath of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, WOKE liberal corporations such as Hertz Rent-a-Car, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and First National Bank of Omaha sever ties with the National Rifle Association.
  63. 2019 Sunday: In the 91st Academy Awards, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen[x] wins four big awards while “Black Panther,” “Green Book” (Best Picture), and “Roma” which had four awards.  It was tough going between “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Black Panther,” both films were extremely popular.  It’s a shame Chadwick Boseman couldn’t have won Best Actor.
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Armenia closes its border with Iran following the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in that country.  Oman- in the Persian Gulf- shuts off air traffic from Iran into its country.  In Italy, another 74 cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu brings the country’s number of cases to 224 what with another four fatalities.  Next, due to South Korea’s outbreak of coronavirus, Vietnam announces its airlines will suspend flight to the country the following day.   In the United States, reported cases are now at 53 as they begin to spread in the Pacific Northwest.  Pakistan’s airlines suspend flights to the People’s Republic of China as it attempts to arrest the number of cases coming to its borders.  Around the Persian Gulf, various nations are reporting their first cases while in Europe, Spain reports its first cases.  
  65. 2021 Wednesday: Day 36 of the Biden Regime- Sean Hannity reports that the Democrats  are striving to find a way with which, they can remove the nuclear codes from the responsibilities of the president, i.e., the commander-in-chief which in this case is ‘Joe Biden’ (in truth, Barack Obama via Kamala Harris).  House Democrats want to hold sole authority for launching nuclear weapons should the necessity arise the United States needs to launch them.  Why would the Democrats be striving to weaken the powers of the president? 
  66. 2021 Wednesday A: Much to the disgust of New York Attorney General Leticia James, the ever-volatile chief lawmaker of the Empire State, no charges will be filed against the seven Rochester police officers involved in the death of druggie Daniel Prude, a doped-up fool who was naked but for a spit hood on his head.  Ms. James sought to make the case a focal point of her career, but her hopes were dashed when a grand jury found the officers behaved within department policy. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday B: Failed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is a ‘yes vote’ on the confirmation of Judge Merrick Garland to be the nation’s next attorney-general.  “Cocaine Mitch” joins ranks with several other RINOs to announce a ‘yes vote’ for the wily evader of all pertinent questions.   Elsewhere, 13 Republican House members urge the FCC chair to back ‘free speech’ over leftist demands for ‘censorship’ of all speech other than what they approve.   Meanwhile, the Dems hold hearings on Capitol Hill in the House with which to forge ahead of de-platforming One America News, Newsmax, and Fox News Channel.  We expect they will soon come after Talk Radio as well as online speech in blogs.    Finally, 14 House Republicans are requesting the FBI provide information on just how deep Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell’s ties go to communist China.  The Republicans want to know just how compromised the government is by the Democrat’s schlepping of a Chi-Com intelligence agent.  We want to know the answers, too.
  68. 2021 Wednesday C: The White House press briefing room is cleared and cleaned after an unnamed reporter tests positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hold hearings on Republican-requested curbs on the Democrats scheme to federalize ALL voting via the H.R. 1 ‘For the People’ bulls**t bill currently being pushed by the Dems.  This bill is wholly unconstitutional.   Elsewhere, RINO Congressman Fred Upton, Michigan 6th District, finds himself censured yet again over his recent vote to expel Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from the haloed halls of Congress over her support of President Donald J. Trump.  Cass County, Michigan, slapped the censure on him today.   Finally, former President Barack Hussein Obama says that ‘white resentment and resistance’ is what stalled discussion of reparations for those descended from slaves.[xi]
  69. 2021 Wednesday D:  Free Speech founder Bradley Smith says the ‘Democrats targeting conservatives is a rank abuse of power.’  Yet, the Democrats are working overtime to prevent conservative speech being heard anywhere.  Elsewhere, another federal judge bans the enforcement of the ban of deporting illegal aliens.  Under the Biden regime, ALL illegal aliens can remain in the country.  Also- why aren’t the Democrats weeping and wailing over the big blue Quonset huts down along the southern border filled to the brim with the 5,000 illegal aliens being apprehended per day?  When Trump was president, they were gnashing their teeth, smearing their fetid bodies with ashes, donning sackcloth, and scourging their backs.  Now, not so much.  Hypocrites.
  70. 2021 Wednesday E: The International Olympic Committee is preparing to announce its preferred bidder for the 2032 Summer Olympics.  Who could it be?  Russia?  The Chi-Coms?  Iran?  We’ll have to wait and see.  Speaking of Iran, people are speculating that all the missiles being fired out of the crap-hole country are a message directed at the ‘Biden administration.’   Elsewhere, everyone was awaiting information as to when the court date for aged rocker Bruce “I Love Obama” Springsteen[xii] were going to be.  Then, we heard the court threw out the drunken driving charges against the “Boss.”   In other sad news, the Cancel Culture now labels the movie, “Grease,” as being BAD.  It’s bad because they claim there’s misogyny, that it’s sexist, that it’s homophobic, and that it slut-shames.’  Gee whiz sounds like a movie everyone should see.  This is the trouble when a bunch of morons attempts to judge the past by the present.  Remember lefties, one day, YOU will be the ones a future generation is judging.   
  71. 2021 Wednesday F: A recent anthropological study suggests that when early humans came to the Americas between 10-12 thousand years ago (although evidence suggests human habitation in North America as far back as 60,000 years), dogs traveled here with them.   In other news, an upcoming U.S. report lays the blame for the death of U.S.-Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi directly at the feet of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday G: Democrats are set to vote on their PORKULUS, aka the COVID-19 Relief Bill this Friday.  Out of $1.9 trillion (money being borrowed from the Chi-Coms), $350 billion is going to state and local governments (think Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Mayor Eric Garcetti, and other BIG BLUE STATE liberal locales.  Another $86 billion is going to fund union pension plans (think teachers’ unions and the like), $129 billion to schools, whether they reopen or not, another $15 billion to Medicaid expansion (think FREE healthcare for illegal aliens), $30 billion for public transit (liberals hate private cars), and at least $500 million for the arts, humanities, museums, and libraries.  ONLY 9-percent of this appalling amount of cash is going to Chinese Virus needs.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says, ‘it’s crazy to borrow money to fund this liberal wish list of bailouts, handouts, giveaways, and bull crap.’  However, more than 150 BIG BUSINESS executives support this insanity as they hope to latch their grubby mitts onto this handout of money borrowed from Beijing.    
  73. 2021 Wednesday H: Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, serving on the House task force on the Chi-Coms says there is NO way the Chi-Coms should host the Olympics and that to have the American flag flying in the PRC would be wrong.  The Chi-Coms bear full responsibility for the deaths of victims of the ‘VID and that to honor them would be to dishonor everyone else. 
  74. 2021 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 112,214,084 confirmed cases, +389,387, 2,487,568, confirmed deaths, +10,900, and 63,368,513 confirmed recoveries, +269,020.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,526,532 confirmed cases, up 63,214 from yesterday’s reporting, 507,469 confirmed deaths, UP 2,234, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last four-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 178,955 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the hell is it you feeble old Chi-Com stooge?  It seems that everyone around ‘Pro-China Joe’ is ‘Pro-Chi-Coms.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,543,162 confirmed cases, 49,895 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 339,051 confirmed cases, 4,947 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Oklahoma: currently, they have 421,010 confirmed cases, 4,264 confirmed deaths, and 403,159 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 759,572 confirmed cases, 5,634 confirmed deaths, and 712,555 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Mexico: 2,052,266 confirmed cases, 181,809 confirmed deaths, and 1,607,869 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, medical researchers now fear coronavirus variants.  Will they subject us to continued lockdowns, restrictions, and intimidation?  F**k them.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ says it’s shipping 14.5 million doses of the Wuhan Virus Crisis vaccine to the states this week.   Finally, the FDA says that Johnson & Johnson’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine meets emergency usage standards.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,961.86, UP 424.51 points (+1.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,597.97, UP 132.77 points (+0.99%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,925.43, UP 44.06 points (+1.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.00 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.34%) while the price of SILVER is $28.01 per troy ounce, +0.15 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,275.40 per troy oz, +17.50 (+1.39%) while the price of COPPER is $4.32 per pound, +0.02 (+0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,442.50 per troy oz, +89.50 (+3.80%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.45 per barrel, +0.23 (+0.36%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.36.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000020 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, new home sales are up by 4-percent whereas new mortgages are down by 11-percent.
  77. 2021 Wednesday L: The state attorney general of West Virginia- Patrick Morrissey- rejects lawmakers’ calls to ban or censor news programming.   Meanwhile, Donald Trump teases his upcoming speech at CPAC by suggesting that he’s going to blast enfeebled Joe Biden and tease his upcoming 2024 run for the White House.  This would explain why the Dems are seeking to make Joe Biden a ‘prime minister’ and neuter his presidency (if you can call it that).  Next, noted legal scholar Jonathan Turley suggests the ‘new red scare’ is intimidating conservative voices into silence.  Regarding this, Arizona GOP Congressman Andy Biggs says the ‘pressure on media platform providers to silence conservative voices is intense.  Finally, Palm Beach County, Florida, refuses to lower flags for famed radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Powerball and Super Lotto drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3537 with a $23 million on the line: 07, 34, 38, 44, 47, and Mega 07.  Out of 113,786 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $18,478.  One ticket was sold at a Chevron in Los Angeles, CA  while the second was at Sky Fuel in El Cajon, CA 92021.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball #823 with a $90 million jackpot just waiting to be grabbed by some lucky individual: 04, 33, 43, 53, 65, and Powerball 21.  Out of 56,233 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $32,139.
  79. 2021 Wednesday N: A former aid to New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo details the ongoing sexual harassment she suffered at the hands of this slack-jawed bottom-feeder.  Shame, Andrew, shame.  Elsewhere, a misguided poll reports that a majority of Republicans back Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Chinese Virus Relief Bill.  We do not believe this report.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasts the Democrats’ attempt at de-platforming conservative news media sites.  He also says that President Donald J. Trump’s help in retaking the House for the GOP is going to be extremely important.   Next, failed- and- censured Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO, continues bad-mouthing President Donald J. Trump, blaming him for the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter- led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the very same riots used by Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to turn Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill and White House into a Baghdad-like Green Zone.  Some wag on Newsmax said that Congresswoman Cheney is auditioning for a future job on CNN (or better- MSNBC).  Liz, from all of us to you, “SHUT YOUR RINO MOUTH!”  Congressman McCarthy whip this RINO into line or strip her of her committee assignments the same way the RINOs did Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene.   
  80. 2021 Wednesday O: Grant Stinchfield reports on Newsmax that Chi-Com facial recognition software is being used in the United States.   As he says, ‘overreaching surveillance in the U.S. is infringing on every American’s civil liberties.’  As he says, the Chi-Coms tested the software on Uighur Muslims who slave away in Xinjiang concentration camps on behalf of Coca-Cola, Nike, Apple, and other global corporations (as well as have their organs harvested for the global organ market) and now with the help of Democrats like ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and others are transforming the entire world into a vast surveillance state.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ the old coot he’s also revoking Trump-imposed bans on the numbers of foreign workers and Green Card holders allowed into the United States.  In a country beset by Chi-Com-caused Panda Pandemic unemployment, ‘Old Joe’ is flooding the country with hundreds of thousands (and soon millions) of people who are going to Americans’ jobs.  Time for the RED STATES to form a new country and abandon ship.   In other news, calls for the impeachment of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continue to grow led by Democrats in state government.
  81. 2021 Wednesday P: Jen Psaki says 11 million illegal alien fence-jumpers and river-swimmers and visa-overstays will soon have a pathway to citizenship.  The Dems continue braying about ’11 million, 11 million, 11 million’ when in fact, sources within the government say the number is closer to 30 to 50 million illegal aliens hiding in the shadows except, of course, when they commit crimes on one another and against U.S. citizens.  When the 11 million illegals are ‘legalized,’ they are going to receive free health care, free housing, free food stamps, free in-state tuition, free transportation, free this, free that while American citizens foot the bill and languish without jobs. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana.  The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries.  Good, let them be the guinea pigs.  Next, the White House says a call between President Biden and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will ‘happen soon.’  White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday that a classified U.S. report confirms the fact that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the hit on Jamal Khashoggi.  C’ est la vie.
  83. 2022 Thursday: Join us later in the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “Chicago 1970”- came out on August 07, 2020.  The album featured a stripped down, lean, mean, music-fighting machine featuring NO female vocalist for the first time in the group’s history.  However, the band did feature Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  You can see, hear, and feel Richard Thompson’s growing power within the band, power that would eventually propel him out on his own being a rocker at heart.  We love this album as we know you will so why waste time?  Seek it out now, give it a listen, and make it a part of your daily listening enjoyment.  You will be glad you did.  Undoubtedly!

Wednesday, February 24, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

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

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


Thursday, February 24, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two different occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ii] Juan Peron’s wife, Eva Peron, is the woman who that dingbat from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez models her loser self after which is why we have bestowed upon her the name, “Baby Evita.”

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of George Thorogood but when we do you will be the first to know. 

[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.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] In 2020, Democrats are whining that Donald Trump wanted a quid pro quo from Ukraine to get U.S. military aid.  Yet here, we have a prime example as to WHY and HOW foreign aid is doled out by countries around the world.  President Jimmy Carter said that ‘he would consider human rights abuses before doling out American aid to countries around the world.  Quid pro quo?  You had better flipping believe it and a damned good one in our view so Democrats, stop with the f**king sniveling, enough is enough already.

[viii] In 2019, the question is, “Is the late John Dingell looking UP or is he looking DOWN?

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

[x] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[xi] The real reason as to WHY talk of reparations stalled is because (1) it’s crazy, there is NO one alive today descended from slavery prior to 1865 and (2) Democrats love talking about it but will never do anything to solve it as once they solve it, they can no longer use it as a drum to beat around the clock.  Besides, there are so many interracial couples, kids, and others so how is it going to work, is the WHITE spouse going to hand the BLACK spouse a check?  What’s more, what the liberals never tell you is that like the COVID-19 relief, the recipients will have to pay taxes on this money.  When it comes to liberals there are no FREE lunches.  Period.  It’s also important to note that Obama would never have been elected TWICE without white voters so Mr. ‘Unqualified President (due to being born in Kenya and not in the United States) Obama, STFU.

[xii] We will never promote the music of this no-talent POS.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

356. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 22, 2021

66. 2020 Tuesday J: Corrupt prosecutors of the Southern District of New York are trying to get ahold of Rudy Giuliani’s emails so they can pursue him and the president.

Trump signed the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul into law.
  54. 2018 Saturday: A government shutdown that went into effect the previous night continued into the weekend with lawmakers leaving for home for the Christmas holidays.  The shutdown came about because President Trump would not sign the budget if it did not include a measly $1.5 billion for him to continue work on the southern border wall.  Senate Minority Leader “Crying Chuck” Schumer told the president that he ‘will never get the money for his barrier so stop with the shutdown and put the government back to work.’  Finally, Indonesia’s Anak Krakatau volcano island erupted and collapsed, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 420 people and displaced 40,000.
  55. 2019 Sunday: The Pentagon released new emails regarding the President Donald J. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  Approximately 91 minutes after the phone call occurred, the White House Budget Office ordered the Pentagon to put a hold on military aid to the former Soviet republic.  Democrats are impeaching President Trump over this ‘phone call.’   Meanwhile, the White House is considering a plan in which, it will deport illegal aliens seeking to storm the border to Guatemala where they will wait asylum hearings.
  56. 2020 Tuesday: In a move that surprised everyone, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, aka Silver Spoon, aka Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, appoints California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to fill the seat of ‘Vice President-elect’ Kamala Harris who- if she assumes office- will step down from the seat.  Padilla will have to run in 2022 should he fill her seat.  He would become the first Latino senator from the Golden State.  Many suspected that Governor Newsom would appoint himself to fill the Harris seat because it is clear he is going to go down in next year’s recall election.  It would be the only way he would ever make it to a national office.
  57. 2020 Tuesday A: Jared Kushner joins a planeload of Israelis for the first flight from Israel to Morocco, the fourth nation to establish or resume normalized relations with the Jewish state.  Next, the hardcore left BLASTS House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for caving on the COVID-19 Relief Bill.  She held this up from well before the 2020 Elections last month until now agreeing to the same things she agreed to two months ago.  However, Rush Limbaugh reports all manner of giveaways to foreign nations, checks to illegal aliens and their families that are retroactive to the last Chi-Vi relief bill.  Coupled with $600 checks for each American and each illegal alien in the country (remember: the true estimate is between 30-to-60 million illegals within the fabric of the country) the illegals will receive $600 plus $1,200 for a grand total of $1,800 per each illegal alien.  WTF?  Time for a second revolution!
  58. 2020 Tuesday B: Holy Roller Pat Robertson says, ‘Trump should move on, forget about 2024.’[xi]  Loser.  Next, Rudy Giuliani says the Pennsylvania lawsuit is the first of many to come regarding fraud and corruption in the 2020 Presidential Election- the one the Democrats are attempting to steal.   Economic adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Peter Navarro, says the ‘stolen election is an example of brass-knuckles politics.’  Noted conservative author and speaker Patrick Buchannan asks a pertinent question: “Can democracy hold a dysfunctional United States together?’  Good question for which, we don’t have the answer.
  59. 2020 Tuesday C: A Gallup poll shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden has 65-percent transition approval among Democrats.   Speaking of Sinophile Joe, he is going to nominate the head of Connecticut’s educational system- Miguel Cardona, a hardcore left-wing, Democratic-Socialist loser- to become his secretary of the Department of Education.  What can go wrong with this?   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Chi-Com air force joined forces with the Russians to fly joint bomber patrols over the Pacific Ocean.  Some say they were ‘surprised’ by this event, but we were not surprised and expect to see more of our adversaries join together to demonstrate a unified show of force.   Also speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing emplaces new visa restrictions on U.S. citizens entering their authoritarian country in what is seen as a tit-for-tat move.
  60. 2020 Tuesday D: Former New Jersey Governor and failed presidential candidate Chris Christie says, ‘he is leaving the door open to a run in 2024.’  Who is going to vote for you, you traitorous, RINO scumbag?  Certainly, NO one here.  Meanwhile RINOS are expressing mixed feelings if President Trump revives “The Apprentice” should he leave office following the corrupt election.  None of their business.  Speaking of the president, he is considering two pardons for two former GOP congressmen now doing time in federal prisons: Duncan Hunter, Jr. of California, and Steve Stockman of Texas.   Hunter was sent to prison in December 2019 for missing campaign funds while Stockman was sent to prison in November 2018 on charges of money laundering, mail and wire fraud, income tax evasion, and conspiracy, all charges related to a non-profit organization he had set up.  Many believe he was set-up and railroaded by liberal prosecutors and judges.
  61. 2020 Tuesday E: As COVID-19 cases continue arising in California, the state is desperately searching for additional nurses and doctors to handle the crisis, one caused by Governor “The Smiler” Newsom.  We learn, too, that 2020 has become the DEADLIEST year in U.S. history what with 3 million deaths from the Chinese Virus, homicides, suicides, accidental drug overdoses, and far too many other diseases left untreated because everything was diverted into dealing with the effects of the Kung Flu.  
  62. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 77,801,721 confirmed cases, UP by 613,375 cases, 1,713,109 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,824 deaths, and 43,894,903 confirmed recoveries (once again, down from one week ago- something funny going on here), UP by 372,661 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 18,362,068 confirmed cases, UP by 278,922 new cases, 324,441 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,923 new deaths, and 8,135,415 confirmed recoveries, UP by 135,302 new recoveries.
  63. 2020 Tuesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,945,841 confirmed cases, 23,023 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 20,423 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 230,743 confirmed cases, 3,186 confirmed deaths, but like California, the apelike 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, Tennessee: 534,019 confirmed number of cases, 6,269  confirmed number of deaths, and sadly, NO MENTION of confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 387,482 confirmed cases, 3,136 confirmed deaths, and 351,186 confirmed recoveries.
  64. 2020 Tuesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,015.51, DOWN 200.94 points (-0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,807.92, UP 65.40 points (+0.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,687.26, DOWN 7.66 points (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.10 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $25.64 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,011.50 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,323.10 per troy oz., +6.70 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $46.79 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.49%).  Today, COCOA is $2,555.00 per metric ton, +20.00 (+0.79).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.54 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.82 euros.  in other economic news, the more we learn about the bogus COVID-19 chi-vi relief bill, the more we learn it’s full of all  manner of bulls**t and crap.  president Donald J. Trump, veto this flipping bill.  tell mitch McConnell, that brain-dead hag Nancy Pelosi, crybaby chuckie, and even Kevin McCarthy to go suck a big one! no!  no!  no!
  65. 2020 Tuesday I: What we heard earlier is true: President Donald J. Trump issued full pardons to former Congressmen Steve Stockman, Chris Collins, and Duncan Hunter Jr. as well as George Papadopoulos who was singled out for special mistreatment as the doorway with which to enter the Trump campaign.  The president also issued a pardon to Alex van der Zwaan as well as commutations or pardons to others mistreated by the DEEP STATE APPARATUSES.  Pardon any-and-everyone in need of a pardon who might need a pardon.  Elsewhere, after a two-year-stint on the 15-member U.N. Security Council, Germany is leaving and its U.N. Ambassador Christoph Heusgen, going to retire.  The ambassador fought to fight to get two detained Canadians freed from communist China’s cruel grasp had the Chi-Com deputy ambassador to the U.N. Geng Shuang tell him, “Good riddance.”  Time to start nuking some Chi-Coms…
  66. 2020 Tuesday J: Corrupt prosecutors of the Southern District of New York are trying to get ahold of Rudy Giuliani’s emails so they can pursue him and the president.   They are seeking help from the Department of Justice so they can persecute- NOT prosecute- either President Trump OR the president’s attorney.  Meanwhile, the FREE INDEPENDENT NATION OF TAIWAN reports its first Chi-Com Virus case in 250 days.   Speaking of the Beijing Bat Flu, Dr. Tony Fauci received his vaccine today, saying it’s ‘safe’ and that ‘everyone should do it.’  We’ll see.  Ilhan Omar is mad at fellow Squad member AOC for rushing out to get her vaccine.  Elsewhere, President Trump signed an executive order that would permit Special Counsel John Durham to present classified intelligence from the CIA to a grand jury when he prepares his case against those who set the bogus Russian collusion scam investigation into motion. 
  67. 2020 Tuesday K: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1618 with a jackpot of $330,000,000 up for grabs: 29, 53, 56, 59, 67, and Mega 21.  Out of 117,883 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $15,651 apiece.
  68. 2020 Tuesday: One year ago today, here is where we were: as always, we encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Canadians, the Iranians, and other garbage around the world are doing with their Democrat stooges in the U.S.  It’s always fascinating…
  69. 2021 Wednesday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Fairport Convention commemorated the band’s 35 years of existence, 1967-2002.  Aptly titled, “XXXV,” the album hit record store shelves on February 12, 2002, and featured an augmented lineup beginning with the core five of Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals, dulcimers, and piano), Ric Sanders (fiddle), Dave Pegg (bass, mandolins, guitars, and vocals), Chris Leslie (violins, multiple stringed instruments, and vocals), and Gerry Conway (drums and percussion).  Joining them on this endeavor were Ian Anderson (flute), Mark Tucker (guitars), Chris White (vocals), and a full horn section.  All 14 tunes on this amazing album latch onto one’s ears and thus one’s inner mind.  We hope you will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and enjoy- you will be glad you did.

Tuesday, December 22, 2020, Today in History:

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


Wednesday, December 22, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iii] 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.

[iv] We truly look forward to promoting the music of Cheap Trick in the next decade or so.

[v] We hope to promote the music of the Bee Gees within the next 3-4 years.

[vi] 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.

[vii] 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.

[viii] Member of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

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

[x] Speculation exists that Obama is gay because many of the people he put around him while in office were gays and some say during his university days he had a gay affair.  No one truly knows but he sure did a heck of a lot of stuff for the LGBTQIA+ movement.

[xi] We find it absolutely amazing to see who is a true man or woman of God and who is a hack, a religious-political hack.  Pat Robertson demonstrated today that he is a phony POS scumbag, someone who is a fair-weather friend and supporter.  Like Jimmy Swaggert and other phony Holy Rollers, this guy is a loser and should be kept at arm’s length by all future conservative politicians.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

XX. 2019 Sunday: The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend. None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement, they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety. Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?

  50. 2019 Sunday:  The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend.  None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement, they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety.  Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
  51. 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it is NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly).  She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee.  It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, since dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India.  There you go.  If we, were you, Joe, we would sleep with one eye open from this point onward?  
  52. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02.  She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off one hundred officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it. 
  53. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,185,153 confirmed cases, UP by 227,115 cases, 738,800 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,911 deaths, and 12,450,681 confirmed recoveries, UP by 292,606 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,224,867 confirmed cases, UP by 65,127 new cases, 166,456 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 2,623,403 confirmed recoveries, UP by 111,801 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  54. 2020 Tuesday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, thirty-four confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN).  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers your malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.
  55. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,686.91, DOWN 104.53 points (-0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,782.82, DOWN 185.53 points (-1.69%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,333.69, DOWN 26.78 points (-0.80%).  The price of GOLD is $1,926.70 per troy oz., -19.60 (-1.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.38 per troy ounce, -0.669 (-2.57%).  The price of PLATINUM is $942.00 per troy oz, -29.40 (-3.03%) while the price of COPPER is $2.85 per pound, -0.026 (-0.90%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.60 per barrel, -0.01 (-0.02%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.94 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  56. 2021 Wednesday: Friends, I am the Voice of Freedom broadcasting to you from the hellhole of Los Angeles, California, a place beset by unnecessary lockdowns, restrictions, illegal aliens running amok, and a bastion of our beloved governor, “Nazi” Newsom.  Time to overthrow the existing order and it’s going to happen on September 14, 2021.  Stick around for the latest anti-Chi-Com news, politics, Chi-Vi updates, and news about the border crisis…

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0554 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Spring Blooms.”  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, or at the blog’s Facebook page.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  Beverly has been painting for more than 60 years and known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by innumerable 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 work.  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!  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there IMMEDIATELY!  Thank you, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Famed guitarist Mick Abrahams released a ‘Blodwyn Pig’ album called “The Radio Sessions 1969-1971” on April 29, 2012, that actually featured thirteen superb songs culled from radio sessions of not only Blodwyn Pig but also the Mick Abrahams Band.  Thus, you have a variety of musicians including bassists Andy Pyle and Walter Monahan, drummers Richie Dharma and Ron Berg, keyboardist Bob Sargent, saxophonist Jack Lancaster, and of course the famed Mr. Abrahams on smoking red-hot guitars and vocals.  We hope you will consider seeking this one out and making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We thank you for considering it…

The Viet Minh continue fighting for the few remaining outlying posts while others are fighting to gain a toehold in the main camp.

  58. 2015 Thursday: It appears that the NFL has implicated New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in ‘Deflate-Gate.”  This is the scandal in which, both the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens claimed the famed quarterback used footballs in playoff games that were under pressure, making them easier for Brady to handle.  His father, Tom Brady, Sr., claims it is all a ‘frame.’
  59. 2016 Saturday: Democratic voters on Guam head to the polls in their caucuses.   Elsewhere, near Aleppo, Syria, Iranian troops are battling ISIS thugs and in heavy fighting lose 13 of their soldiers, their biggest loss of life since coming to the aid of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Oliver North, U.S. Army Ret., will become the organization’s next president.   Elsewhere, Paraguay becomes the third country to announce the relocating of its embassy from Tel Aviv to capital of Israel, Jerusalem.  Of course, liberals and Gaza Strip trash are wailing and crying that it’s an ‘affront’ against humanity to do so.  The sooner the better, Paraguay.
  62. 2019 Tuesday: In Venezuela, turmoil- as usual- reigns supreme as the Congress strips opposition leaders of immunity and accuses them of treason.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo makes a surprise visit to Iraq to meet with U.S. military and Iraqi leaders so they can determine what to do as the Iranians continue making threats against both nations.  Nuke them.
  63. 2020 Thursday: The U.S. Department of Justice recommends the case against Lt. General Michael Flynn, former national security advisor to President Donald J. Trump be dropped and so it is.   Meanwhile, COVID-19 pandemic adds another 3.17 million Americans to the unemployment rolls, driving the numbers up past 33 million.  Thank you, China.  Confirmed cases of the Kung Flu around the world are 3,784,085; confirmed deaths are 264,679 and confirmed recoveries are 1,255,685 which is great.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,288,771, confirmed deaths are 76,503, and confirmed recoveries are 173,939.  Breaking down the U.S. figures, California has 61,139 confirmed cases, 2,474 confirmed deaths with NO numbers for recoveries.  Hawaii claims 626 confirmed cases, 17 deaths, and 588 confirmed recoveries.  In Washington state, there are 16,178 confirmed cases, 891 confirmed deaths, but NO numbers for recoveries.  What is up with that?  In New York state under the watchful eye of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, there are 327,469 confirmed cases, 20,828 confirmed cases and like California and Washington state, NO numbers for recoveries.  Could it be political?  You better believe it.
  64. 2020 Thursday A: Following a viral video showing Chi-Com sailors aboard their ‘fishing boats’ throwing the body of a dead Indonesian fisherman overboard, the government of Indonesia summons the Chi-Com ambassador to an immediate meeting to discuss the outrageous mistreatment of its citizens serving aboard the Chi-Com ‘fishing fleets’ (which in reality are actually intelligence-gathering operations with foreign fishing crews aboard them to do the ‘fishing’ because fishing is beneath modern-day Chi-Com citizens).   Elsewhere, law enforcement in Brunswick, Georgia, scoops up father and son Gregory and Travis McMichael and charges the two scumbags for chasing down black jogger Ahmaud Arbery on tape beating and then murdering him.  They claimed he was breaking into houses in their area and that they were forced to take matters into their own hands.  These guys are going to fry.   
  65. 2021 Friday: Stick around and discover the truth along with us…you know it’s going to be good…until BIG BROTHER shuts us down for good…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final album Badfinger did for Apple Records came out on November 23, 1973.  “Ass” hit record store shelves and fans were still with the group even though it did not do well on the charts.  The group was disillusioned with Apple because the label had sold them a bill of goods and then left them in the lurch.  Warner Bros. happily picked them up and gave them new life.  The band featured Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, bass guitar), Joey Molland (rhythm and lead guitars, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  “Apple of My Eye” was the single from the band but it failed to do as well as previous releases.  We hope you will seek this one out and give it a good listen- you will definitely enjoy it as much as we do.

ENDNOTES:


[i] 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.

[ii] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

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

[vii] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two different occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ii] Juan Peron’s wife, Eva Peron, is the woman who that dingbat from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez models her loser self after which is why we have bestowed upon her the name, “Baby Evita.”

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of George Thorogood but when we do you will be the first to know. 

[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.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] In 2020, Democrats are whining that Donald Trump wanted a quid pro quo from Ukraine to get U.S. military aid.  Yet here, we have a prime example as to WHY and HOW foreign aid is doled out by countries around the world.  President Jimmy Carter said that ‘he would consider human rights abuses before doling out American aid to countries around the world.  Quid pro quo?  You had better flipping believe it and a damned good one in our view so Democrats, stop with the f**king sniveling, enough is enough already.

[viii] In 2019, the question is, “Is the late John Dingell looking UP or is he looking DOWN?

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

[x] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

  56. 2020 Tuesday A: Jared Kushner joins a planeload of Israelis for the first flight from Israel to Morocco, the fourth nation to establish or resume normalized relations with the Jewish state.  Next, the hardcore left BLASTS House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi for caving on the COVID-19 Relief Bill.  She held this up from well before the 2020 Elections last month until now agreeing to the same things she agreed to two months ago.  However, Rush Limbaugh reports all manner of giveaways to foreign nations, checks to illegal aliens and their families that are retroactive to the last Chi-Vi relief bill.  Coupled with $600 checks for each American and each illegal alien in the country (remember: the true estimate is between 30-to-60 million illegals within the fabric of the country) the illegals will receive $600 plus $1,200 for a grand total of $1,800 per each illegal alien.  WTF?  Time for a second revolution!
  57. 2020 Tuesday B: Holy Roller Pat Robertson says, ‘Trump should move on, forget about 2024.’  Loser.  Next, Rudy Giuliani says the Pennsylvania lawsuit is the first of many to come regarding fraud and corruption in the 2020 Presidential Election- the one the Democrats are attempting to steal.   Economic adviser to President Donald J. Trump, Peter Navarro, says the ‘stolen election is an example of brass-knuckles politics.’  Noted conservative author and speaker Patrick Buchannan asks a pertinent question: “Can democracy hold a dysfunctional United States together?’  Good question for which, we don’t have the answer.
  58. 2020 Tuesday C: A Gallup poll shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden has 65-percent transition approval among Democrats.   Speaking of Sinophile Joe, he is going to nominate the head of Connecticut’s educational system- Miguel Cardona, a hardcore left-wing, Democratic-Socialist loser- to become his secretary of the Department of Education.  What can go wrong with this?   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Chi-Com air force joined forces with the Russians to fly joint bomber patrols over the Pacific Ocean.  Some say they were ‘surprised’ by this event but we were not surprised and expect to see more of our adversaries join together to demonstrate a unified show of force.   Also speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing emplaces new visa restrictions on U.S. citizens entering their authoritarian country in what is seen as a tit-for-tat move.
  59. 2020 Tuesday D: Former New Jersey Governor and failed presidential candidate Chris Christie says, ‘he is leaving the door open to a run in 2024.’  Who is going to vote for you, you traitorous, RINO scumbag?  Certainly, NO one here.  Meanwhile RINOS are expressing mixed feelings if President Trump revives “The Apprentice” should he leave office following the corrupt election.  None of their business.  Speaking of the president, he is considering two pardons for two former GOP congressmen now doing time in federal prisons: Duncan Hunter, Jr. of California, and Steve Stockman of Texas.   Hunter was sent to prison in December 2019 for missing campaign funds while Stockman was sent to prison in November 2018 on charges of money laundering, mail and wire fraud, income tax evasion, and conspiracy, all charges related to a non-profit organization he had set up.  Many believe he was set-up and railroaded by liberal prosecutors and judges.
  60. 2020 Tuesday E: As COVID-19 cases continue arising in California, the state is desperately searching for additional nurses and doctors to handle the crisis, one caused by Governor “The Smiler” Newsom.  We learn, too, that 2020 has become the DEADLIEST year in U.S. history what with 3 million deaths from the Chinese Virus, homicides, suicides, accidental drug overdoses, and far too many other diseases left untreated because everything was diverted into dealing with the effects of the Kung Flu.
  61. 2020 Tuesday F: Here are today’s Comrade Xi Pangolin-Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 77,801,721 confirmed cases, UP by 613,375 cases, 1,713,109 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,824 deaths, and 43,894,903 confirmed recoveries (once again, down from one week ago- something funny going on here), UP by 372,661 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 18,362,068 confirmed cases, UP by 278,922 new cases, 324,441 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,923 new deaths, and 8,135,415 confirmed recoveries, UP by 135,302 new recoveries.
  62. 2020 Tuesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,945,841 confirmed cases, 23,023 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 20,423 confirmed cases, 282 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 230,743 confirmed cases, 3,186 confirmed deaths, but like California, the apelike 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, Tennessee: 534,019 confirmed number of cases, 6,269  confirmed number of deaths, and sadly, NO MENTION of confirmed number of recoveries.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 387,482 confirmed cases, 3,136 confirmed deaths, and 351,186 confirmed recoveries.
  63. 2020 Tuesday H: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,015.51, DOWN 200.94 points (-0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,807.92, UP 65.40 points (+0.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,687.26, DOWN 7.66 points (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.10 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $25.64 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,011.50 per troy oz, +2.10 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $3.52 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.10%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,323.10 per troy oz., +6.70 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $46.79 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.49%).  Today, COCOA is $2,555.00 per metric ton, +20.00 (+0.79).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.54 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.82 euros.  IN OTHER ECONOMIC NEWS, the more we learn about the BOGUS COVID-19 CHI-VI RELIEF BILL, THE MORE WE LEARN IT’S FULL OF ALL  MANNER OF BULLS**T AND CRAP.  President Donald J. Trump, VETO THIS FLIPPING BILL.  TELL MITCH MCCONNELL, THAT BRAIN-DEAD HAG NANCY PELOSI, CRYBABY CHUCKIE, AND EVEN KEVIN MCCARTHY TO GO SUCK A BIG ONE! NO!  NO!  NO!
  64. 2020 Tuesday I: What we heard earlier is true: President Donald J. Trump issued full pardons to former Congressmen Steve Stockman, Chris Collins, and Duncan Hunter Jr. as well as George Papadopoulos who was singled out for special mistreatment as the doorway with which to enter the Trump campaign.  The president also issued a pardon to Alex van der Zwaan as well as commutations or pardons to others mistreated by the DEEP STATE APPARATUSES.  Pardon any-and-everyone in need of a pardon who might need a pardon.  Elsewhere, after a two-year-stint on the 15-member U.N. Security Council, Germany is leaving and its U.N. Ambassador Christoph Heusgen, going to retire.  The ambassador fought to fight to get two detained Canadians freed from communist China’s cruel grasp had the Chi-Com deputy ambassador to the U.N. Geng Shuang tell him, “Good riddance.”  Time to start nuking some Chi-Coms…
  65. 2020 Tuesday J: Corrupt prosecutors of the Southern District of New York are trying to get ahold of Rudy Giuliani’s emails so they can pursue him and the president.   They are seeking help from the Department of Justice so they can persecute- NOT prosecute- either President Trump OR the president’s attorney.  Meanwhile, the FREE INDEPENDENT NATION OF TAIWAN reports its first Chi-Com Virus case in 250 days.   Speaking of the Beijing Bat Flu, Dr. Tony Fauci received his vaccine today, saying it’s ‘safe’ and that ‘everyone should do it.’  We’ll see.  Ilhan Omar is mad at fellow Squad member AOC for rushing out to get her vaccine.  Elsewhere, President Trump signed an executive order that would permit Special Counsel John Durham to present classified intelligence from the CIA to a grand jury when he prepares his case against those who set the bogus Russian collusion scam investigation into motion.
  66. 2020 Tuesday K: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1618 with a jackpot of $330,000,000 up for grabs: 29, 53, 56, 59, 67, and Mega 21.  Out of 117,883 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $15,651 apiece.
  67. 2020 Tuesday L: As always, we encourage everyone to stick around and discover whatever the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Canadians, the Iranians, and other garbage around the world are doing with their Democrat stooges in the U.S.  It’s always fascinating…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Former front man for the J. Geils Band- Peter Wolf- went into the studio and on July 21, 1984, released his first solo album, the acclaimed “Lights Out.”  As long-time fans of the band, it was a tear-jerker to see Wolf go just as it was to see Rod Stewart dump the Faces and Ian Hunter spit in the eye of Mott the Hoople and go their own way.  Joining the veteran vocalist were Adrian Belew and Peter Bliss (guitars/backing vocals), Michael Jonzun (bass), and loads of other people.  It was a fine debut.  The reason Wolf abandoned the group is because Wolf began writing with outside musicians and when be brought the tunes to the group, co-leader Seth Justman said, “NO.”  Thus, the band broke apart and the title track became a mid-sized hit for the vocalist.  Sad but true.  Check it out.

TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, AUGUST 11, 2020

XX. 2019 Sunday: The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend. None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety. Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?

  50. 2019 Sunday: The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend.  None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety.  Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
  51. 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it’s NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly). She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee.  It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, seeing as how dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India.  There you go.  If we were you, Joe, we’d sleep with one eye open from this point forward.
  52. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02. She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off 100 officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it.
  53. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,185,153 confirmed cases, UP by 227,115 cases, 738,800 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,911 deaths, and 12,450,681 confirmed recoveries, UP by 292,606 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,224,867 confirmed cases, UP by 65,127 new cases, 166,456 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 2,623,403 confirmed recoveries, UP by 111,801 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  54. 2020 Tuesday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, 34 confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, 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: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN).  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.
  55. 2020 Tuesday D: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,686.91, DOWN 104.53 points (-0.38%).
