  62. 2020 Friday: Following last night’s announcement that President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for the Chi-Vi, they are in isolation.   Speaking of President Trump, Reuters reports the results of a recent poll that shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden is smoking Trump by virtue of what many believe to be an insurmountable lead of nine points.  However, Gallup reports that President Trump’s approval ratings are at their highest since the month of March, 46-percent.  A question asked by Gallup pollsters, “Despite whom you plan to support on November 3 and viewing things objectively, who do you think will win on November 3?”  A whopping 56-percent to 40-percent said they believe that President Trump will win re-election.  That says a lot.  Still, a poll on CNBC says that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to whoop President Trump by 54-percent to 41-percent.    Meanwhile, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a $2.2 TRILLION COVID-19 relief bill.  All Republicans- plus 18 Democrats- voted against it.  It is expected to die a slow death in the U.S. Senate. 
  63. 2020 Friday A: Chinese state-run media is laughing at President Trump following his announcement of having the Chinese Virus.  Why are you laughing?  This has been Beijing’s plan all along, to infect as many Americans as possible.  The rest of the world is merely collateral damage in the eyes of the modern-day Mandarin scum.  Speaking of all-things Chi-Com, Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Miami Heat (Lakers won 116 to 98) had the lowest viewership since 1994 when the New York Knicks played the Houston Rockets faced off against one another: 7 million, down from Game 1 of last year’s finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors.  That matchup had 13.7 million viewers.  Perhaps it’s time for the NBA to move to communist China, a place they seem to value more than they do their native country.  Adios, muchachos.
  64. 2020 Friday B: U.S. unemployment dropped below 8-percent yesterday, coming in at 7.9-percent what with 661,000 new jobs created and an increase in wage growth by 4.7-percent.   Speaking of economics, Switzerland announces it has approved a minimum wage of $25 per hour.  Yikes.  The cost of everything is going to skyrocket which means the mountain-surrounded country will have to import more Muslim refugees to fill low-wage jobs (under the table, if you know what we mean).  Elsewhere, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces that the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett will plow ahead, even as Democrats screech for a slow-down in the process.  Speaking of court matters, the U.S. Supreme Court says it’s going to review a BALLOT HARVESTING LAW in the state of Arizona.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Earlier today, Marine One transported President Donald J. Trump to Walter Reed Medical Center due to his Xi Jinping Bat Flu symptoms.  Upon arrival, he walked off the helicopter on his own volition, snapped a salute to military personnel, and headed for the hospital.  First Lady Melania Trump remains at the White House.  Son, Baron, and other family members have tested negative for the virus.  We neglected to mention that RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also has the Chi-Vi.  Get well, Mr. President, and Nancy “Mumbles’ Pelosi, stop talking about presidential succession: YOU will NEVER get close to the White House other than as an invited guest.

  69. 2020 Friday G:  As has become the norm, if you want to know what sorts of devious activities the Democratic Party and their bosses in Beijing are up to, you will have to check in throughout the day as more and more information continues coming to light.  We know the Chi-Coms and their allies in the Democratic Party are celebrating the president’s plight; their time is coming and it’s coming soon.  We also know as of today that the Chi-Coms are waging war on our blog site, using their stooge at Google- Sundar Pichai- to put us in page 100 of search results.  What do you scumbags fear?  YOU fear free speech?  We know Sundar Pichai sure the heck does; after all, he’s the POS who shut down the popular Google Plus site, used by millions of users around the world.  He did to stick his nose up Xi Jinping’s butt.
  70. 2020 Friday H: We learned this evening that the Michigan Supreme Court struck down Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat- a woman, who if ANTIFA truly battled fascism would be there en masse doing battle with her- struck down her recent bald-faced attempt at extending her dictatorial power by extending the COVID-19 lockdown until the end of October.  They said without approval by the state’s legislature, her orders were invalid.  According to the court, ‘life must begin returning to normal.’  Elsewhere, we learned that former White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway tested positive for the Wuhan Virus as has North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, Republican, Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, and three members of the White House Press Corps.   Sadly, many on the left are praying the president dies while world leaders- from Boris Johnson, UK, Angela Merkel, Germany, Vladimir Putin, Russia, and Kim Jong-Un, North Korea.  Thank you.   We also must note that both the former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden both tested NEGATIVE today for the Chinese Virus.  Good health to you and yours.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [ix]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 403,498 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 580 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xv]    Let us look at one other North Carolina: $3.008.  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- Netherlands: $8.257 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,831,207,808,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.

  79. 2022 Sunday: Observation of the Day- Like many of my colleagues, My contention is the United Nations no longer possesses any relevancy what with the ongoing war in the Ukraine and the atrocities Russian and Russian mercs are committing there.[xviii]  While I understand that Russia can veto any resolution merely because of their presence on the U.N. Security Council, one would think that the UN Secretary-General would be hitting them every day with demands to cease, desist, and to evacuate that war-torn land.  As with most things, the creators of the U.N. somehow did not envision the possibility that one of the five permanent members would begin an illegal and unjustified war and yet it has happened at least twice now: George W. Bush’s criminal invasion of Iraq and now Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine.  BOTH of these men should be tried in the Hague and both these men should be given lengthy prison sentences.  I would hope that the next president- the rightful president– uncovers a way through which we can rectify this glaring mistake.  We know the current lump of aged flesh in the Oval Office will do nothing other than to commit billions and billions of borrowed Chi-Com monies to the fight AFTER he and his corrupt family skim off copious amounts of cash.  I’m not saying anything everyone does not know, okay?  The Biden regime and family are as corrupt as they come.  It is what it is.  Let’s sweep the November midterms and let us march forward as a unified people.  See you in six months- let us hope things are better than they are now.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0970 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset Magic.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On February 12, 1998, Cheap Trick released the full edition of their first live album, “Live at Budokan,”- “Live at Budokan- the Complete Concert.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

[i] We hope that when President Trump returns to the White House that he and a unified GOP will deport the United Nations out of New York City and send it to Beijing where it’s better suited.  Get the U.N. out of the U.S. NOW.

  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!
  73. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,995.60, UP 2.27 points (+0.008%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,190.32, UP 133.67 points (+1.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,401.20, UP 17.66 points (+0.52%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.90 per troy oz., -4.30 (-0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $27.34 per troy ounce, -0.119 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $978.40 per troy oz, -3.80 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, -0.006 (-0.20%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,417.50 per troy oz., +8.00 (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.39 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.29%).  Today, COFFEE is $124.30 per metric ton, +1.00 (+0.81).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.78 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them.  Today, communist China’s ally, the World Trade Organization released a ruling that says ‘the U.S. violated international regulations by imposing trade tariffs on $278 billion of Chi-Com goods entering the U.S.’  Stop the crying, Beijing, this is NOTHING ruling, and the U.S. will continue punishing you, authoritarian SOBS.
  74. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,150,151 confirmed cases, +480,596, 4,671,400 confirmed deaths, +8,373 and 203,826,456 confirmed recoveries, +454,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,432,847 confirmed cases, UP 144,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 684,572 confirmed deaths, UP 2,231,[vi] and 32,244,493 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,709.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]   
  75. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 366,118 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 37,960 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  76. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,518,943 confirmed cases, 67,632 confirmed deaths, and 2,378,010 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,499,061 confirmed cases, 49,254 confirmed deaths, and 2,413,074 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 73,268 confirmed cases, 671 confirmed deaths, and 72,597 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 615,582 confirmed cases, 7,153 confirmed deaths, and 258,825 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New York: they have 2,423,298 confirmed cases, 55,269 confirmed deaths, and 2,116,680 confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  77. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,202,212 confirmed cases, 7,452 confirmed deaths, and 1,112,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Pierre and Miquelon, 213th area on the list: 31 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 30 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  78. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,814.39, UP 236.82 points (+0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,161.53, UP 123.77 points (+0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,480.70, UP 37.65 points (+0.85%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.60 per barrel, +2.13 (+3.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,795.20 per troy oz., -11.90 (-0.66%) while the price of SILVER is $23.89 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $941.90 per troy oz, +3.20 (+0.34%) while the price of COPPER is $4.41 per pound, +0.09 (+2.06%).

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

73. 2021 Sunday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE- The attorney general of the great state of Montana- Austin Knudsen- announces that IF the Biden administration attempts to deliver illegal immigrants from the U.S.-Mexico border to northern states, they are going to slam the administration with a hefty lawsuit. NO one wants these illegals, Joe, so stop dumping them across the country.

  35. 1944 Tuesday: On the Eastern Front, German and Romanian troops that have been bottled up in Odessa in the Ukraine are preparing their own evacuation by sea across the Black Sea towards Romania and freedom.  The Red Army continues shelling the city making the escape problematic but still, drowning is preferable to becoming a POW in the Soviet Union.    Meanwhile, the Soviets capture the Nikolayev which the year before had been the scene of a major battle between escaping Italian 8th Army, Romanian, and German survivors of the Battle of Stalingrad.   
  36. 1945 Wednesday: Germany launched the last of the V-2 rockets against England.   On the Western Front, U.S. British, French,  and Polish forces continue the inexorable drive towards Berlin and ultimate victory while the Soviets continue plowing through Eastern Europe, crushing resistance wherever they come across it.   In the China-Burma-India Theater, Imperial Japanese forces are losing the fight for Burma and are having to hightail it towards the east.

  65. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, officials find that Andreas Lubitz, co-pilot of downed Germanwings Flight 4U 9525, had mental and physical health problems that he hid from the airline; a doctor’s note was found excusing him from work on the day that he crashed the plane.  Meanwhile, the Saudi Coalition announces that it now has full control of Yemeni airspace while ground fighting continues around the port of Aden.  The Saudis are trying to drive the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels out of their positions and to reassert Yemeni Sunni control of government.
  66. 2016 Monday: Belgian prosecutors release one Muslim guy they scooped up in their search for the jihadists that capsized their country and caused widespread fear throughout Western Europe because the evidence upon which, they arrested him did not support the crimes with which they were trying to charge him.  We hope they kept eyes on him anyway…elsewhere, the Japanese military continues building up its forces and intelligence-gathering apparatuses near the disputed Senkaku Islands, the ones the Chinese covet. 
  67. 2017 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump proposed immediate budget cuts of $18 billion from programs such as medical research, infrastructure, and community grants so the American taxpayers—and NOT Mexico—could cover the down payment for the border wall.  Elsewhere, Wells Fargo Bank said it would pay $110 million to settle a class-action lawsuit over as many as 2 million accounts its employees opened for customers without getting their permission.
  68. 2018 Wednesday: Arriving for his first trip outside North Korea, Kim Jong Un arrives in Beijing via his armored train to meet with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.  Meanwhile, following an out-of-control prison riot that led to a major fire in the Carabobo state police headquarters in Valencia, Venezuela, the authorities claim 68 deaths and countless others injured and maimed.
  69. 2019 Thursday: After 100-plus migrants seized control of a merchantmen plying the waters off the coast of Libya- and which then took control of the vessel and ordered its captain and crew to take them to Malta- the Maltese navy arrived on scene, stormed the vessel, freed its crew, and took the pirates into custody.  The ship then went onto Malta where it docked, and the scumbag refugees were trotted off to holding cells.  We guess a prison on Malta beats living in Libya without Moammar Gaddafi in charge.  
  70. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus continues plaguing the world what with confirmed global cases hitting 664,924 with a total of 30,848 deaths and 140,222 recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the United States there are a total of 124,665 confirmed cases with 2,026 deaths and approximately 1,072 recoveries (although the recovery number seems a bit low).  Meanwhile, in Communist China, the authorities have re-opened parts of the epicenter of the virus- Wuhan- after two months of intense isolation including the nailing in of the afflicted into their apartments.
  71. 2021 Sunday: FOREIGN NEWS I- Some nut case runs amok in a library in Vancouver, Canada today stabbing seven people.  One person is dead, and six others wounded.  Stick around for updates.  Meanwhile, tensions continue to rise in Myanmar as the military junta goes berserk during their annual military parade in their capital city of Naypyidaw.  They murdered at least 100 people across the country yesterday and continue their rampage today.  Since the military coup took charge, more than 420 brave souls have been slain by the left-wing thugs.
  72. 2021 Sunday A: FOREIGN NEWS II- Meanwhile, a pair of jihadists attempt to storm a Roman Catholic Church but end up detonating their suicide bombs outside the main entrance injuring at least 14 people.  The Indonesian jihad attack occurred on the island of Sulawesi.   One must love the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Elsewhere, for the second year in a row- thanks to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu Pandemic- Pope Francis delivered Palm Sunday services to a near-empty St. Peter’s Basilica.  Finally, two additional tugboats are heading to the Suez Canal to try to budge the quarter-mile-long container ship blocking canal traffic.  Economic losses are estimated to be around $9 billion per day in shipped goods reaching their destinations.
  73. 2021 Sunday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE- The attorney general of the great state of Montana- Austin Knudsen- announces that IF the Biden administration attempts to deliver illegal immigrants from the U.S.-Mexico border to northern states, they are going to slam the administration with a hefty lawsuit.  NO one wants these illegals, Joe, so stop dumping them across the country.  As the BIDEN BORDER HOLOCAUST continues to develop, a weakening Biden administration says, ‘yes, indeed, it will allow reporters to visit the border.’  Speaking of the border, President Donald J. Trump says he will be visiting the border within the next several weeks.   Next, an ABC-IPSOS poll released today says that ’56-percent of the American people do NOT approve of Joe Biden’s bungled border crisis, the disaster that threatens to engulf our entire nation.  We suspect the numbers are far higher than that.  Finally, Senator Mike Braun reported that a Biden administration hack demanded GOP senators delete all photos of their visit to the crumbling border.
  74. 2021 Sunday C: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS- The Biden administration installs a rabid anti-Trumper by the name of Richard Torres Estrada into the role of Chief of Diversity and Inclusion (what a load of bullshit.  There, we said it, what are you going to do about it?) into the Special Operations Command.  I guess we need more snowflakes with which to terrify the NEW Axis powers of communist China, Russia, Iran, and their junior partners North Korea, Venezuela, and Cuba.  Limp-wristed defenses are best.  Speaking of North Korea, it appears that Joe Biden is indeed losing sleep at night over North Korea because he won’t utter a peep against their bellicosity.
  75. 2021 Sunday D: POLITICAL NEWS I- In Iowa, the news media is turning on Democrat Rita Hart, the woman trying to get House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to steal the seat from lawfully-seated Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks.  The Cornhuskers are growing angrier by the day and the Democrat media is slamming Ms. Hart and Pelosi, too.  God bless them.   Meanwhile, Bill Maher on his show, Real Time with Bill Maher, noted left-of-center commentator is blasting the WOKE attitudes in U.S. schools, hammering them for being unable to hear ALL views.  Good for you, Bill.
  76. 2021 Sunday E: POLITICAL NEWS II- Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, Congressman Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd congressional district, blasts “Mumbles” for staging political theater on the grounds of the Capitol what with razor wire fencing that never seems to come down surrounding Fort Pelosi as well as for installing metal detectors through which, ALL members must pass or face an immediate docking of $5,000 from their pay.  People of California vote this angry old senile hag out of office.
  77. 2021 Sunday F: POLITICAL NEWS III- Corey Lewandowski says that when President Donald J. Trump’s new social media platform goes live, people will be able to communicate directly with the 45th president.   Elsewhere, GOP Asian official Lee Wong shows his battle scars to his fellow Cincinnati city council members.  “Don’t question my patriotism” as he displayed his scarred body from 20-years’ military service in the U.S. military.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. says that ‘before the Democrats go after law abiding citizens’ guns, they had better do something about Hunter Biden as man, that guy lied on a federal background check form as well as tossed a firearm into a trash can across from a school that then disappeared.  Amen.
  78. 2021 Sunday G: POLITICAL NEWS IV- Meanwhile, this September, Congress is going to award murdered retired police Captain David Dorn with the Congressional Medal of Honor.  Looks like “Mumbles” needs to show she actually gives a flying fluck about murdered cops.    Elsewhere, the people of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are seeking to remove their version of Los Angeles County’s George Gascon, the inept left-wing POS DA Larry Krasner.  Since last summer’s protests, violent crime rates have soared into the stratosphere.  Remove this George Soros-funded piece of duck dreck from office.  NOW.   Next, Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA and a man who serves Karl Marx and the Lord simultaneously, told Dana “Horse Face” Bash today that the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate can concentrate on BOTH voting rights and infrastructure at the same time.  Wow.  Good for you.
  79. 2021 Sunday H: CHINESE VIRUS NEWS- Vladimir Putin says he expects that herd immunity in the former Soviet Union will arrive sometime towards the end of summer at which point, all lockdowns and restrictions will be removed.   Next, the British expect the second round of Wuhan Virus vaccines will soon be administered to the British people and even better, thanks to increasing supplies, people will not have to receive MIXED vaccinations which is incredibly good.  Elsewhere, One America News asked a question today: “Is the China Virus responsible for hate crimes?”  No, the communist Chinese are responsible for the virus and OTHER minorities than Asians hired by the Democrats to go out and commit faux hate crimes against Asians are responsible.  Why do you think we NEVER see the perpetrators in the FEW EXAMPLES trotted out by leftist news media to show us of this wave of hate crimes against Asian Americans?  It’s not happening yet Asian Americans at the drop of a hat (Democrats set this stuff in motion) are out in the streets demanding STOP THE HATE.  It’s all Astroturf, folks.  (What we have seen is young black men attacking Asians.  Someone talk about that, please).

  83. 2021 Sunday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- California theme parks are preparing to reopen this week.  Next, the White House and private industries are conspiring as HOW to create ‘vaccine passports’ so that those who resist vaccination with this as yet-unknown crap- will be prevented from participating in normal society.  The Health and Human Services Department is the driving force behind this initiative by which, the federal government and the globalist movement can force everyone to accept their agenda.  People of faith are suspicious of this push to get everyone to take this vaccine for a disease that millions suspect is not quite as bad as advertised.  Very strange, folks, very strange.  Finally, Oscar De La Hoya is going to make yet another comeback, this time at age 48.
  84. 2022 Monday: Stick around, let’s see what happens today…

  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.

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.

  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…

  52. 2003 Thursday: The United States, Great Britain, Australia, and Poland invade Iraq sans United Nations sanctions.  Airstrikes have already been crisscrossing the country and it appears that the Iraqis are unprepared to contend with this assault.  Little did the Coalition troops know that Saddam Hussein had a plan, a good plan.  Government forces disappear into the shadows and an insurrection fueled by religious extremism will blossom in it’s place.  That won’t happen for several months however…
  53. 2004 Saturday:  In Taiwan, despite being shot in the stomach by an unknown assailant, President Chen Shui-bian wins another term as president.  The results are close, so his opponent decries the election as ‘unfair’, but the results hold firm.   Meanwhile, in the United States, millions of people in this country and across the world take to the streets protesting the first anniversary of the war in Iraq.  It started out well and everyone in Congress- including the Democrats- were onboard but as soon as it went south, everyone was all over President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney (especially him), and the administration.
  54. 2005 Sunday: In Fukuoka, Japan, the first major earthquake to hit in more than a century occurs killing one person and injuring numerous others which also causes massive evacuations.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrives in Beijing to meet with Chi-Com President Hu Jintao.
  55. 2006 Monday: In Chad, the rebel movement seeking to overthrow President Idris Deby launches an attack in the eastern part of the country that kills 150 government soldiers and injures countless others.   Meanwhile Russian thug Vladimir Putin visits Beijing to discuss energy projects with Chi-Com thug, Hu Jintao.
  56. 2007 Tuesday: Democrats continue screeching and whining about the Bush White House firing a bunch of federal attorneys.  President Bush agrees to permit White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers testify but NOT under oath.   Meanwhile, the French government signs an extradition treaty with communist China.  They will ONLY extradite people involved in DEATH PENALTY CASES and only if the communists agree not to condemn the individual to death.  Typical European thinking.
  57. 2008 Thursday: The communist Chinese are having a hell of time trying to quell the rising unrest in Tibet.  Well, go figure- the Chi-Coms are interlopers and Tibet is NOT their country; yet they claim it, persecute their people, and are searching for the Dalai Lama as though he is a common criminal.   The Dalai Lama offers to meet with the Chi-Coms but in response they load up hundreds of military vehicles loaded with soldiers to crush the INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT.

Udall died at age 90.  A Democrat, Secretary Udall served under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson from January 21, 1961, to January 20, 1969.
  60. 2011 Sunday: The Arab Spring continues: the people of Morocco turn out in the thousands to demand an end to corruption and civil rights for all citizens.  Bahrain is experiencing problems as is Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Libya.  Arabs across the Middle East are hopping mad with their governments and their governments are taken by surprise.  It will lead to a complete restructuring of much of the Middle East.   
  61. 2012 Tuesday: Violence continues to rage across Iraq with 50 people killed and another 240 plus injured as terrorists conduct suicide bombings, shootings, kidnappings, and other violence.  At least 10 cities are experiencing a wave of violence.  Elsewhere, Pope Benedict XVI appoints three new bishops for the United States- one in Baltimore, Maryland, the second in Tallahassee-Pensacola, Florida, and the third in Cheap Trick’s[vi] home, Rockford, Illinois.
  62. 2013 Wednesday: Zillur Rahman, age 84, the president of Bangladesh, dies in office after a prolonged illness at a hospital in Singapore; the government declared three days of mourning.  Meanwhile, following the U.S. State Department’s comments on next month’s Venezuelan elections, Caracas cuts off a back-channel line of communications with Washington, D.C.  The Venezuelans would NEVER dream of holding corrupt or crooked elections not with Smartmatic Software and allegedly Dominion Voting Systems machines, allegedly.
  63. 2014 Thursday: Rising Asian demand for Champagne will represent increasing export growth, with Japan currently the fourth-largest export market after the U.K., the U.S. and Germany.   Meanwhile, the world is growing increasingly upset with the Russian occupation and annexation of the Crimea but there is nothing anyone will do to stop Vladimir Putin’s road to conquest.  Next, and even more perplexing, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, orders an investigation into HOW and even more important WHY the CIA ‘breached’ the U.S. Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence’s computers.[vii]  
  64. 2015 Friday: The creator of “Berry’s World,” cartoonist Jim Berry, dies at age 83.  Meanwhile, former Liberal Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Fraser (served 1975-83) dies at age 84.  Elsewhere, ISIS releases video of the executions of three Kurdish peshmerga soldiers and announces with glee that ‘there are going to be more from where those came.’  Savage sons of bitches, we need to radiate all of them.   Meanwhile, in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., former drummer Anthony “A.J.” Pero of Twisted Sister died at age 55.
  65. 2016 Sunday: President Barack Hussein Obama and his family arrive in Cuba for a three-day visit.  He was the first U.S. president to visit the island nation since 1928.  His visit, however, was the first by any American president since the island went communist in the 1950s so thank you, Mr. Obama, for being such a pro-Castro POS.
  66. 2017 Monday: The American psychotherapist who coined the term ‘homophobia’ dies at the age of 87.  We do not know if Dr. George Weinberg was himself a homosexual but he’s the one who crafted the term.  Meanwhile, confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia commence today.  Of course, liberals are hopping mad over the fact that their guy, Merrick Garland, never had a hearing but it is what it is.  Elsewhere, fired FBI Director James Comey is going to testify before the House Intelligence Committee today.
  67. 2018 Tuesday: Actress Cynthia Nixon from “Sex in the City” announces she will run for New York governor.  She would go down in flames to the dimwit Andrew Cuomo.  Meanwhile, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman meets with President Donald J.

Elsewhere, Disney forks out $71.3 billion to buy 21st Century Fox and all its individual parts.  Next, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras issues a ruling that HALTS oil and natural gas drilling in Wyoming.  The reason: climate change.   
  69. 2020 Friday: The Chinese Virus is sweeping across the world.  At first, health authorities- especially in the United States and Europe- were very dismissive of the Wuhan Flu whereas now, businesses are closing and a two-week mandatory order in the U.S. is enacted.  “Two weeks to flatten the curve and then life can return to normal” is the mantra.  People like the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci told us early on that masks were not important whereas now, everyone must wear them if they wish to journey out to the doctor or to big box stores.  Toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex and napkins have become a thing of the past.  The shelves of stores are being stripped clean with only foodstuffs people don’t like clinging to the shelves.
  70. 2021 Saturday: BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS- the latest report that began hitting the news late yesterday evening is that the Biden administration is seeking air transport to begin moving the tsunami of illegal aliens crossing the southern border to the northern border so CBP officials can begin processing them there.[viii]  The northern border has been quiet since the arrival of COVID-19 caused all operations to be suspended so now, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ brainy new idea is let’s load all the illegal aliens aboard aircraft, move them to the border with Canada, and deal with them there.  Secretary Mayorkas, how about this: HOW about loading them aboard transport aircraft and send them back to whence they f**king came?  Enough is enough already.  Meanwhile, dingbat House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi claims ‘Joe has the border mega-disaster under control.’  Awesome.  We may need to reevaluate our views on the Chi-Coms.  At least they would NEVER prevent suicidal stupidity such as what the Biden administration is afflicting onto the people of our country.
  71. 2021 Saturday A: BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS II- Governor Greg Abbot, R-TX, is demanding state authorities inspect the illegal alien holding pens at least out of public health and humanitarian desires.  Illegals are crammed into shipping containers, into the backs of trucks (300 found in the back of a Mexican truck), fresh water, decent food, showers, and other hygiene provisions as well as COVID-19 checks are sadly lacking, and the frigging Democrats had the never to criticize the Trump administration for how it ‘treated’ its illegals.  The Trump administration cared for them and even better, made it extremely difficult to come here so millions of Third World illegal aliens did not all begin marching north.  The Biden administration must deal with this, or we will discover YOU did steal the election on November 3, 2020, and boot this criminal regime out of office.  (Speaking of te stolen election, the Arizona Senate has ordered the hand recount of 1.3 million ballots from the election out of fear that MASS FRAUD was committed by the Democrats).   Meanwhile, Congressman Clay Higgins, R-LA 3rd congressional district, the ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Border Issues is seeking an audience with Joe Biden.  The crisis must be stopped (or the American people, we suspect, will step up and fix the problem themselves).
  72. 2021 Saturday B: JOE BIDEN NEWS- Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-Fl 1st congressional district, tells news people that Joe Biden is the image of ‘weakness,’ especially after falling on the stairs of Air Force One three times yesterday (maybe Vice President Kamala Harris slathered some lube on those steps?).  Congressman Gaetz, we will raise it one step higher: Joe Biden is the posterchild of ‘weakness,’ he’s the milk carton image of weakness, this aging image of senility is putting our country in danger.   Wake up, America, before it’s too late.   Meanwhile, Franklin Graham slams Joe Biden for ‘offending Putin’ as well as for backing ‘abortion at all stages.’  We suspect the reverend is not happy with Biden angering yet another one of our opponents, Vladimir Putin, as all we need is everyone ganging up on us at one time.  Next, Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is handing the border over to the drug cartels.’  Finally, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says that the ‘communist Chinese think they can roll Joe Biden.’  Of course, they can.  
  73. 2021 Saturday C: DEMOCRAT PARTY NEWS- brand-new HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge is already in trouble.  For being on U.S. government property- we believe the White House press room, she was electioneering as to who she believed should run against outgoing Senator Rob Portman, R-Ohio.  Secretary Fudge says that either Dayton, Ohio, Mayor Nan Whaley or fellow Democrat Congressman Tim Ryan, D-OH 13th congressional district (and failed presidential candidate), would make great senators.  In an effort to deflect from the secretary’s woes, Democrats are trying to save everyone in the Trump administration was electioneering all the time.  Bulls**t.
  74. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS- several of the justices have come to the court to meet in person ahead of oral arguments next week.  This is the first time since the arrival of COVID-19 that justices are meeting in person. 
  75. 2021 Saturday E:  REPUBLICAN PARTY NEWS- GOP lawmakers in the state of Georgia are working on new legislation that will prevent large nonprofit organizations from interfering in Peach State elections.  Apparently, there are no restrictions on how much money these nongovernmental entities can throw into campaigns, campaigns they seek to alter so the outcomes are favorable to them.  Most of these organizations like Stacey Abrams are hardcore leftist groups.  We bid them good luck in stopping this interference.   Elsewhere, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district says that the ‘Dems radical agenda is on full display what with wide open borders and the House Democrats trying to steal the certified election of Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district.  Everyone can see exactly what they are doing.    
  76. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- The organizers of the Olympic Games in Tokyo this year have decided that NO foreign fans can attend any of the games.  Due to the COVID-19 running amok around the world, they think it’s best to prohibit outsiders- other than the athletes- do not attend.  Probably just as good seeing as how they just had a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit the same area around Fukushima nearly a decade ago.   Nobody wants to be caught in a disaster like that.  Elsewhere, a long dormant volcano- hasn’t erupted in 781 years- came to life on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula, 20 miles or so south of the nation’s capital of Reykjavik.  Authorities in that country are not worried because they believe it to be in a somewhat remote, isolated area.  Let’s hope so.
  77. 2021 Saturday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II: Federal agents investigating New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo are closing in on the capsizing Empire State’s chief executive thanks to evidence gathered by the state’s legal department and supplied to the U.S. Department of Justice.   Elsewhere, the outer fencing around the U.S. Capitol is supposed to be coming down sometime this weekend.  Next, a judge says that the anti-GOP media is a threat to American democracy, true democracy, not this Democratic-Socialism the liberals are trying to force down our throats.  Meanwhile, a probe into golf champion Tiger Wood’s recent automobile accident says the evidence shows there was no sign the legendary golfer tried to slow down ahead of the curve.  Finally, former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon is asking that his indictment be dropped seeing as how President Donald J. Trump issued him a pardon.
  78. 2021 Saturday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III: NASA conducted a successful test of its Artemis rocket engines, the ones that will power a new generation of astronauts to the moon and back sometime in 2024.  Meanwhile, former Florida Senator Bill Nelson, Democrat, is up for the head job at NASA.  A three-time senator and former astronaut, Joe Biden nominated him to head the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.   Next, prosecutors now have 12 sexual misconduct charges going against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.  We hope the guy didn’t do what they say he has but it looks like that POS Colin Kaepernick could be heading to Texas instead of Seattle.  Praise the Lord!   Finally, in Mexico’s Chiapas’ state capital, Tuxtla, a parade of law enforcement, immigration officers, and National Guardsmen- hundreds of them in fact- conducted a march against human trafficking which is upending the region thanks to the ‘migrant president’- Joe Biden (Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador gave him this name).
  79. 2021 Saturday I: ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIME NEWS- U.S. Marshals tracked down a POS illegal alien child predator- 46-year-old Juan Jimenez-Salas- accused of raping his Arkansas girlfriend’s two young daughters.  This illegal alien child rapist managed to escape and was tracked down to Texas.  When he tried to resist the arrest, the marshals shot the scumbag dead.  Jimenez-Salas had been deported at least once 20 years ago for similar crimes.  Apparently when law enforcement rolled up on this lowlife victimizer of the defenseless, he did everyone a favor, pulled a firearm, and was shot dead.  Excellent.
  80. 2021 Saturday J: NOTE- THE FOLLOWING NUMBERS ARE THE SAME AS YESTERDAY’S- Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 121,882,440 confirmed cases, +297,052, 2,692,806, confirmed deaths, +7,036, and 69,033,271 confirmed recoveries, +144,348.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,905,513 confirmed cases, up 58,699 from yesterday’s reporting, 545,131 confirmed deaths, UP 1,650, and 116,597,906 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.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 216,654 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- El Presidente, in another two-and-a-half weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    
  81. 2021 Saturday K: 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: 3,638,515 confirmed cases, 57,391 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,678 confirmed cases, 452 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 355,397 confirmed cases, 5,224 (DOWN ONE) confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., the commonwealth of Puerto Rico: currently, they have 137,510 confirmed cases, 2,092 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 827,220 confirmed cases, 6,082 confirmed deaths, and 800,514 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Portugal, former colonial powerhouse and now a sunny destination on the map- 817,080 cases of the ‘VID, 16,762 confirmed deaths and 766,924 confirmed recoveries.
  82. 2021 Saturday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.878 per gallon, $3.609 in Hawaii, and $3.314 in Washington state.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,077,536,864,432 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  83. 2021 Saturday N: Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3544 with a $30 million pot on the line for some lucky person: 03, 23, 27, 34, 37, and Mega 13.  Out of 127,805 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $20,650 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #830 with a prize of $200 million on the line: 01, 06, 22, 42, 61, and Power 04.  Out of 94,505 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $25,626 apiece.
  84. 2021 Saturday O: Julia Letlow won a special election in Louisiana today, the one to fill the seat vacated by her late husband, Luke.  The Republican won the 5th congressional district seat.  Another special election is heading for a run-off on April 24, the one to fill the seat vacated by Democrat Cedric Richmond who went to serve as special adviser to Joe Biden.  Two Democrats secured spots in the battle for the 2nd district congressional seat.  Still, you never know what might happen in these crazy times…
  85. 2022 Sunday: stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band more or less reformed in the early 1990s sans Robbie Robertson and on November 02, 1993, released the critically acclaimed, “Jericho.”  The lineup featured three stalwarts- Garth Hudson (keyboards/accordions), Rick Danko (bass/fiddle/harmonica/vocals), and Levi Helm (drums/vocals/mandolins/guitars)- with Richard Manuel guesting on vocals and piano.  Joining the reformed group were Jim Weider (guitars/vocals), Stan Szelest (electric pianos), Rick Bell (keyboards/accordions/vocals), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), along with guest spots by loads of other talented and well-known musicians.  While people missed Robbie Robertson’s exceptional songwriting and famed guitar, the Band demonstrated that yes, they were more than just Robbie’s ‘backup’ performers but amazing musicians in their own right- which they most certainly are.  We hope you will seek this album out as it is the first of a trio of new works to come.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

77. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2022

1946 Monday: At the Nuremburg War Crimes Trials, former Luftwaffe Chief Hermann Goering is still in the witness dock. He will not accept fault for his crimes and defends the actions that he and his fellow Nazis took during the war. He’s a tough nut to crack. Goering, however, knows the score- he knows he’s destined for the hangman’s noose unless a miracle happens.

Bush, PLEASE- don’t do this.  We beg you.  Meanwhile, the foreign ministry in Iraq labels President Bush a ‘war criminal’ before the war is even under way.
  70. 2004 Thursday: Howard Dean announces he is going to form a far-left organization of people of like mind, the progressive Democracy for America group.  This guy’s a nut.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives votes to double the bounty atop the head of wanted international terrorist, Osama bin Laden.  Find the POS and kill him.
  71. 2005 Friday: Doctors in Florida, acting on the orders of a state judge, removed Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube.  Despite the efforts of congressional Republicans to intervene and repeated court appeals by the parents of Schiavo, the brain-damaged woman died on March 31, 2005, at age 41.

Security Council vote just days before authorizing any naval force encountering pirates off the coast of East Africa to engage, a U.S. Naval squadron encounters Somali pirates and lights them up killing at least 1, wounding others, and taking 12 prisoners.  Excellent action.  Pirates must be eliminated from the high seas.  Elsewhere, Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine are fighting one another as they try to form a unified cabinet.

  74. 2008 Tuesday: You know it’s an election year when loads of limp-wristed sissies turn out to protest the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.  Look, we agree, NO one wanted George W. Bush to invade Iraq but the more we think about it, the more it appears that the Deep State aka the Military-Industrial-Political Complex egged him on to do it because industrialists and corporatists can only make money when bombs are dropping on Middle Eastern and other Third World targets and blood is being shed for oil.  When we don’t even get the oil, it’s even worse.  Fricking Dick Cheney!   Meanwhile, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, does his best to distance himself from the insane comments made by his ‘former’ Reverend Jeremiah “Chickens Have Come Home to Roost” Wright in whose church Senator and Mrs. Obama sat for 20 years.

  76. 2010 Thursday: In anticipation of passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA, aka the ACA, aka Obamacare- the White House delays an overseas trip so President Barack Obama can sign the bill when it reaches his desk.  The Democrats expect to have the 216 votes with which to pass this monstrosity that will destroy the American healthcare system for generations to come, lead to lower-quality healthcare, and create ‘Death Panels’ with which government bureaucrats will eliminate what the Nazis called, “Useless eaters,” people who took more resources to stay alive than they gave back to society.  We hope it won’t pass.
  77. 2011 Friday: After the United States, Britain, and France authorized a No-Fly Zone over Libya, Libyan authorities announced that it would call for a ceasefire, which it immediately violated by killing 25 civilians in Misrata.   Meanwhile, the MESSENGER spacecraft goes into orbit around the planet Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun.

Robert Bales.  Currently, he is being held in solitary confinement at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas.  Afghan President Hamid Karzai is screeching about ‘multiple shooters killing the 16 which included 9 children’ but no evidence supporting those allegations is found.   Sgt. Bales enlisted in the military following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and had served multiple tours fighting terrorists.
  79. 2013 Monday: At Kano, Nigeria, an explosion at a bus park claims the lives of 25 people and injures numerous others.  Meanwhile, an explosion erupts claiming the lives of 10 people and injures 20 others as a car bomb goes off in Mogadishu, Somalia.

  81. 2015 Wednesday: Although election consultants sent by President Barack Obama to help the opposition to Israeli leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, worked hard and spent millions to beat the prime minister, Netanyahu and his Likud Party retain power.  Mr. Netanyahu set out to form a new coalition government.   Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Frankfurt, Germany, during a massive protest against austerity measures proposed by Berlin. 
  82. 2016 Friday: American actor Joe Santos of Rockford Files fame dies at age 84.  Elsewhere, following imposition of new sanctions on North Korea, South Korea reports that its northern neighbor fired off two ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan.   Meanwhile, European Union leaders are trying to bribe Turkey to do something about halting the ongoing flow of Muslim ‘refugees’ from the Middle East, Central Asia, and other parts of the region through their country and into Europe.  Something has got to give.
  83. 2017 Saturday: The founder of rock-and-roll—the great Chuck Berry[xii]—died from natural causes at the age of 90 in Wentzville, Missouri.  Meanwhile, as Iraqi military forces begin assaulting ISIS positions in western Mosul, tens of thousands of civilians try to flee through the battle lines.  The Iraqis have to sort out civilian from terrorist, it’s an onerous process but a necessary one.
  84. 2018 Sunday: In a ‘shock of shocks’ (yeah, right), Russian thug president and oligarch Vladimir Putin wins his fourth term with 76-percent of the vote.  Meanwhile, Sri Lanka ends the state of emergency it declared on March 06, 2018, after anti-Muslim riots got out of hand.
  85. 2019 Monday: According to the U.S. National Weather Service, historic, catastrophic flooding occurs as parts of Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and South Dakota find themselves battling floodwaters.  Of course, this is a SIGN of ‘Climate Change.’  Ooh, la-la. Elsewhere, New Zealand mourns the loss of people killed in the recent mosque shootings, urging the populace to show compassion for the Muslim population.   Meanwhile, in Utrecht, Netherlands, a jihadist seeking revenge for the mosque shootings in New Zealand opens fire on a train, killing three people and wounding others.  The police finally track the POS down and discover that he is a Turkish immigrant.   Bring out the old guillotine.   
  86. 2020 Wednesday: As of today, there are 214,894 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the “Wuhan Virus,” the one the Peoples’ Republic of China dumped on the world.  Currently, we have 8,732 confirmed deaths with 83,313 recoveries.  China continues leading the death toll with 3,122 followed by Italy with 2,978 and then Iran with 1,135 deaths.  After them, Spain acknowledges 623 deaths followed by France with 148, then South Korea with 84, the United Kingdom with 71, then the Netherlands with 58, and the U.S. with 55 deaths.  Meanwhile, after getting his butt clobbered in the previous day’s presidential primaries, Sen. Bernie Sanders announces the suspension of his presidential run.  Thus, Joe Biden is the de facto winner of the nomination which means, who will contest him at the convention or even before?  Will it be moronic Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York who seems to be on TV every flipping day acting as though he is the ‘shadow president’ or will it be Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama?  Possibly, since Democrats OWE Donald Trump at least three years, perhaps the president should postpone elections until November 2024?  On Wall Street, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes at 19,898.92, a drop of 1,338.46 or -6.30%.  The S & P closes at 2,398.10, a drop of 131.09 or -5.18.  Finally, the NASDAQ closes at 6,989.84, a drop of 344.94 or -4.70%.
  87. 2021 Thursday: DAY 58 of the Biden Regime.   FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS UPDATE- North Korea calls nuclear talks with the ‘Joe Biden administration’ to be little more than a waste of their time.  Furthermore, they say that IF Joe Biden doesn’t dump the harsh speech, Joe Biden won’t be getting much sleep at night for the next four years.  They might consider speaking with ‘Joe Biden’ if he refrains from the hate speech against Kim Jong Un and discontinues the nasty rhetoric.  Otherwise, Biden can shut the hell up.   In answer, the Biden administration says it ‘will keep all options on the table when it comes to dealing with the North Koreans and will counter any threat the Kim regime poses to the rest of the Asia-Pacific Region.’ 
  88. 2021 Thursday A: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS UPDATE II: The Russians are not happy with Joe Biden.  First, they demand that Joe Biden apologize for calling Vladimir Putin a ‘killer,’ and then when Joe Biden’s administration remains mum, they call their ambassador in Washington, D.C., to return home.[xiii]  This is a slap to the face of Joe Biden personally and to the American people in general.  It’s a good thing that Joe Biden didn’t say that ‘if Putin and I were in high school, I’d take his scrawny little ass behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.’  IF Joe had said something like that, we might be getting nuked by now but of course, Joe Biden lacks the testosterone to do something as brazenly stupid as that.   Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘back and forth between Biden and Putin is increasingly childish.’  Stop it.  Meanwhile, Moscow extends the house arrest for Alexei Navalny’s spokesperson, Kira Yarmysh.   
  89. 2021 Thursday B: FOREIGN NEWS UPDATE/OVERSEAS III: In Kabul, Afghanistan, a bus carrying Afghan workers along a road runs smack dab into a roadside bomb planted by practitioners of the religion of peace.  The resulting explosion claims the lives of four workers outright, injures another nine, and blows the bus to smithereens.  One must love the ‘religion of peace!’  Next, as the Joe Biden administration meets with the Chi-Coms in Alaska, reports are that Beijing is going to pressure U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken- a close friend of the Chi-Coms- to remove all Trump era sanctions imposed upon them.  This most likely is going to happen.  Elsewhere, the UAW is upset because an automobile Ford Motor Company promised to manufacture in Ohio is heading for Mexico instead.  Thank you, Biden administration, thank you dumb ass Richard Trumka for NOT putting labor squarely behind President Donald J. Trump.  More job losses to come.
  90. 2021 Thursday C: BORDER NEWS UPDATE I: The people of the United States are decrying ‘Joe Biden’s assault on the southern border.’  As our country reels from the massive invasion of Third World illegal aliens who are coming here to suck off government’s teats, none of these people will assimilate and many of them are males of military age.   House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that ‘Joe Biden’s words and actions alone have created the border crisis.’  He also says that ‘when Joe Biden was running for president, he said he would open the borders and legalize millions of illegals so no one should be surprised now at what is happening along our border.’  (Note- we say it’s time to begin seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, to put in antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat obstacles beginning on our side of the river and then lay in minefields, foo gas pits, punji stake pits, and whatever else we can to protect our borders from the tidal wave of illegals.  STOP THEM NOW!)
  91. 2021 Thursday D: BORDER NEWS UPDATE II: Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says that ‘Joe Biden is going to try to redeploy border funding to other programs,’ like WOKE bulls**t.   Meanwhile, Mexico says it will help with the BORDER DISASTER if the United States provides aid with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.   Elsewhere, it’s clear that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is working on behalf of the illegal aliens and not the American people.[xiv]  Elections have consequences, folks.  The Biden administration is planning to legalize ALL DACA recipients as well as anyone who has worked in U.S. agricultural fields for as short a time as 180 days.  BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  It is better than hundreds of thousands of uneducated illegal aliens languishing in Joe Biden’s gulags.  Send them back NOW.  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, demands that Secretary Mayorkas ‘change course now’ on the border.
  92. 2021 Thursday E: CHI-COM NEWS: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, is moving forward a bill that will strip compromised House Intelligence Committee member Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, a man who had a lengthy sexual affair with a Chi-Com female intelligence agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang.  Leader McCarthy says there is NO way that Swalwell could get a security clearance in the private sector so he should not have one in the public sector.  Swalwell is a security risk and increasingly erratic House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi will do nothing about it.  (Note- it appears to me that her anti-Alzheimer’s drugs are not working very well- Goldie).
  93. 2021 Thursday F: POLLING AND ELECTIONS NEWS- a recent Rasmussen poll reports that 75-percent of the American people believe that VOTER ID is an essential tool with which to maintain fair and honest elections.  Why then won’t the Democrats demand safe and secure elections rather than seeking to enfranchise illegal aliens, felons, sixteen-year-olds, and others incapable of voting to vote?  This bull crap simply must stop.  NOW.   
  94. 2021 Thursday G: ATLANTA MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRES and associated ideas- even though Robert Aaron Long- the person that shot and killed five Korean women, Latinos, and one white male says he didn’t do it because they are Asian does not gain much traction in the media.[xv]  We think his motive most likely was having watched the Grammys on Sunday night and seen all the whores and sluts prancing around that for a guy with a self-proclaimed sex addiction, he acted upon what he saw.  The Democrats continue wailing about the uptick in anti-Asian violence of which, we have still seen incredibly little and what we have seen other than Mr. Long is black folks attacking Asians.[xvi]  Still, the Asian-American community is screaming for support so congressional hearings looking into all the ‘anti-Asian violence’ are going to begin soon.  Dr. Alan Dershowitz, noted legal scholar, says the easy availability of firearms put the gun into the hands of Mr. Long.   How about we do something to help people with sex addictions in our highly sexualized society?   (Note- Joe Biden and Kooky Kamala Harris are going to visit Georgia soon and are going to blast guns- again.  STFU.  Goldie).   Anyhow, the Atlanta P.D. says the investigation into Mr. Long is FAR FROM OVER meaning they are seeking a racial angle.  Oh- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Trump’s to blame for the shootings.’[xvii]
  95. 2021 Thursday H: U.S. Senate News- the U.S. Senates confirms the pro-China William Burns by a unanimous vote to become the nation’s next Central Intelligence Agency director.  Wow.  Even worse, the U.S. Senate confirms California Attorney-General Xavier Becerra by a vote of 50-49 (Senator Susan Collins, RINO-ME, voted ‘aye’) to become the next Health and Human Services secretary.  Generally, someone with a medical background is sought for this post.  Sadly, however, the only thing Becerra qualifies for is his love of abortion, abortion at all stages of fetal development and even post-birth.  The man is an evil, evil ghoul.   At least the people of California have gotten rid of him.  No longer is he the Golden State’s problem; no, he’s now the nation’s problem.   Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer was correct when he defended the legislative filibuster back in 2017 whereas now, Schumer lacks the balls to keep the left-wing of his party at bay.  Schumer is LEFT-WING of his party.
  96. 2021 Thursday I: Miscellaneous Government News- The Republicans in Congress are concerned over HOW the Democrats plan on funding their (Green New Deal) ‘infrastructure program.’  Representative Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the Democrats will stick ‘the American workers, the middle class with paying for another multi-trillion-dollar bill.’  She also says that this scheme is their most expensive so far.   Meanwhile, the House passes an extension on the Equal Rights Amendment despite furious pushback from the GOP.   Next, in a ‘speech’ today,  Joe Biden referred to “Kooky Kamala” Harris once again as “President Harris.”  Dr. Jill Biden should be in prison for elder abuse.  WTF.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives passes a bill with which to award GOLD MEDALS to all Capitol Hill police officers who withstood the ‘insurrection of January 06, 2021.’  Wow.  Go, Nance, go!  Panderer.[xviii] 
  97. 2021 Thursday J: WEATHER NEWS UPDATE- the National Weather Service issues severe warnings for the American Deep South.  The NWS also says that much of the U.S. is going to be in the throes of an extended drought.  WTF is going on in the atmosphere with all the chem trails?  Something is occurring of which hardly anyone knows.  We would LOVE to know what our government or worse- the globalist government- is doing to the world’s atmosphere.
  98. 2021 Thursday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- The Kansas state Senate passes a bill prohibiting trannys from playing in girls’ and women’s sports.  It will advance to the GOP-controlled House in the state and then move to the governor’s desk.   Next, Lt. General Michael Flynn’s former business partner, Bijan Rafiekan, found himself resentenced by an appeals court over whatever bogus crime with which he was charged.   Next, Dan Bongino is going to assume Rush Limbaugh’s radio slot on Talk Radio.   In other interesting news, Los Angeles County D.A. George Gascon admits to cutting 8,000 years of prison sentences given to L.A. criminals and this in just 100 days.  We are NEVER visiting Los Angeles City or County ever again until this scurrilous POS is removed from office.
  99. 2021 Thursday L: GOP Miscellaneous News: a nonpartisan polling groups says that Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is the most effective U.S. senator.  Next, another poll says that U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is the most popular SCOTUS justice among Republicans.  Congratulations, Justice Thomas.   Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he’s optimistic about Joe Biden doing the right thing with the Chi-Coms.   
  100. 2021 Thursday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 121,585,388 confirmed cases, +583,289, 2,685,770, confirmed deaths, +10,249, and 68,888,923 confirmed recoveries, +253,755.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,846,814 confirmed cases, up 58,650 from yesterday’s reporting, 543,481 confirmed deaths, UP 1,177, and 116,340,711 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.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this wretched, disorientated slobbering POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 215,004 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    
  101. 2021 Thursday N: 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: 3,632,133 confirmed cases, 57,016 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for more than a week now).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 354,828 confirmed cases, 5,212 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., aka the federal district, Washington, D.C., aka Fort Pelosi: currently, they have 42,892 confirmed cases, 1,046 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries thanks to Mayor Muriel Bowser.  Woof.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 824,926 confirmed cases, 6,062 confirmed deaths, and 793,723 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Romania, the home of Vlad the Impaler, aka Count Dracula of literary fame: 881,159 cases of the old the Communist China Condition, 21,877 confirmed deaths and 794,950 confirmed recoveries.   Meanwhile, new reports say that New York health authorities were horrified at Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s order to return COVID-19-positive patients back into nursing homes (and yet, they did NOTHING.  They are as guilty as the governor who, by the way, has another accuser, a female reporter who says he made her feel uncomfortable).
  102. 2021 Thursday O: Boy!  Dreadful day on the markets now that BIG BUSINESS realizes there is going to be inflation, possibly, stagflation, loss of jobs, low interest rates, all the gains made in 2021 are LOST thanks to “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,862.30, DOWN 153.07 points (-0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,116.17, DOWN 409.03 points (-3.02%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,915.46, DOWN 58.66 points (-1.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.60 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.08 per troy ounce, -0.27 (-1.03%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.00 per troy oz, -9.50 (-0.78%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.04 (-0.94%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,662.80 per troy oz, +124.50 (+4.90%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.00 per troy oz, +45.00 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.59 per barrel, -0.41 (-0.68%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.49.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Azerbaijani Manat, one greenback equals 1.69.   Last week, there were 770,000 first-time unemployment applications last week which is a reverse from the previous week.  Claims are going up, NOT going down.  The national unemployment rate for February 2021 was 6.2-percent nationwide.
  103. 2021 Thursday P: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.871 per gallon, $3.580 in Hawaii, and $3.301 in Washington state.  Time for ALL Red States and portions of states to secede from the Communist States of America.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,066,880,604,872 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.
  104. 2022 Friday: What will happen today…

[i] We hope to do the music of all the soul legends one day including Wilson Pickett among others.

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

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

[iv] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[v] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

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

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

[viii] 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.

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

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

[xi] Not sure when we will do the music of Blues Image but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[xii] We look forward to promoting the music of Chuck Berry in its entirety but are not sure as to when.  Stay tuned.

[xiii] Apparently, Vladimir Putin is challenging Joe Biden to a public debate.  This is something we would love to have front row seats to watch!

[xiv] We learn today that at least 3 million illegal aliens are going to be legalized immediately just as we learned that all illegal aliens deported under the Trump administration who were here living in the shadows for three years will be invited back.  We also learn that the Biden administration will NOT deport any illegal alien child who manages to walk through Central America, up through Mexico, and somehow cross our border will NEVER be deported- DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

[xv] Interesting note- Atlanta Police Department Captain Jay Baker lost his position as spokesperson for the department today because he relayed to the press what the suspect told him, that he ‘shot those people because of his sex addiction.’  Captain Baker did not sing the song of INCREASED VIOLENCE AGAINST ASIAN-AMERICANS, OH MY, MY!  Identity politics strikes once again and that ho, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is in the midst of it.

[xvi] The incredible thing in all of this is that Democrats despise Asian-Americans, they demonstrate it through holding them back in institutions of higher learning like colleges and universities.  The Dems do not like the fact that Asians are extremely industrial, successful, and do not need government generally to survive and thus the Democrats wage war on them around the clock.  Now that they can use their grief to their advantage, they love the Asians now but when things go back to normal, they will cut them loose the same way Democrats cut Cindy Sheehan lose after she thought she could primary Nancy Pelosi in her California House district race.  Democrats are USERS, they care little for the people they use, it’s who and what they are.

[xvii] Here’s something- Donald J. Trump’s personal wealth FELL by $700 million the four years he was president.  Mr. Trump is the first American president to LOSE money while in office.  The man is a patriot.

[xviii] The ‘January 06, 2021, commission’ by which the government seeks to ‘investigate the Capitol Hill riots, aka THE TRUMP-INSPIRED INSURRECTION, is being held up by…you guessed it…partisanship. 

65. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, MARCH 06, 2022

57. 2017 Monday: President Donald J. Trump signs his second executive order banning visitors from six mostly ‘religion of peace’ nations but leaves Iraq out of the mix. The ban is good for 90 days. Millions of liberals go berserk around the country in protest of this sensible order.

  61. 2021 Saturday: Today is Day 46 of the Biden Regime, socialism and communism never sleeps nor does beating the rug looking for all the white supremacists the LEFT claims are lurking all over the place.  They must have their radicals mixed up- it’s the Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter bobbing up and down in the liberal crapper, the one the Chi-Coms never seem to wish to flush…late in the evening/early in the morning, Chuck Schumer’s Senate passes the massive $1.9 trillion Joe Biden PORKULUS bill with which supposedly to relieve COVID-19 suffering.  Joe, you still have a trillion languishing from the previous Chi-Vi relief bill that has not yet been spent so what the f**k?
  62. 2021 Saturday A: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 116,169,119 confirmed cases, +387,940, 2,582,075, confirmed deaths, +9,722, and 65,695,020 confirmed recoveries, +198,353.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,192,273 confirmed cases, up 63,054 from yesterday’s reporting, 527,917 confirmed deaths, UP 2,357, and 112,910,453 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.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 199,440 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, other than sending the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine overseas, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines to the Third World.  Also, prevent the invasion across the southern border.

  64. 2021 Saturday C: As if things cannot get any worse for the embattled Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Empire State’s soon-to-be-ex-governor, two of his senior female aides have thrown in the towel and left him in the lurch.  “Killer Cuomo,” just f**king resign.   Elsewhere, as illegal aliens continue swarming across the border and people become shocked by what’s going on, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- not the brightest bulb in any pack- says, ‘we don’t take advice from Donald J. Trump.’  You would be wise if you did.   Speaking of President Trump, he endorses South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster for another run in 2022 just as he endorses Lt. Gov. Griffin on Arkansas as that state’s next attorney-general.   West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey says the people must act to stop the power grab the Biden administration is carrying out against the country.    Finally, eight Senate Democrats balk at the $15 per hour minimum wage sought by the Biden administration.
  65. 2021 Saturday D: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3540 with a $26 million at stake: 12, 18, 27, 28, 34, and Mega 19.  Out of 108,397 winning tickets, ONE person had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $38,985.  The winning ticket was sold at a Food 4 Less in Long Beach, CA 90805.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #826 with a $138 million jackpot up for grabs: 11, 31, 50, 52, 58, and Powerball 18.  Out of 69,278 winning tickets, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $12,844 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On November 01, 1975, the Band managed to shelve their differences and get back to work.  The subsequent album, “Northern Lights, Southern Cross,” featured not one, not two, but three glorious songs that make it worth owning by every fan new and old.  “Ophelia” is about a woman every man has known at one time or another while “It Makes No Difference” is a lamentable tune that defines the end of a relationship that could either be one between lovers of between band members.  “Acadian Driftwood,’ the third tune, also is one that evokes an emotional response which makes this album superb.  The band features the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[ii] We look forward to doing the music of Pink Floyd within the next two years.  The offering will include the solo efforts of the individual members, too, like David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Syd Barrett, Nicky Mason, and Rick Wright. 

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

[iv] Vladimir Putin stole the Crimea from the Ukraine during the second term of President Barack Hussein Obama.  From 2017 on, Democrats and anti-Trumper garbage claim that President Donald J. Trump is in bed with Moscow, when in fact, it was Obama who was the bed buddy of Comrade Putin.  Shame.

Trump, has his White House security clearance downgraded, most likely by General Kelly, the COS for the president.  Meanwhile, freak Barbara Streisand[vi] reveals she has cloned her dog not once but twice.  Hope it was not like Stephen King’s classic novel.  Next, 980 days before the 2020 Presidential Election, President Trump announces he is running for a second term and has hired Brad Parscale to be his 2020 campaign manager.
  59. 2019 Wednesday: Before Congress, one of the worst spectacles of the Trump administration occurs as the president’s former lawyer and so-called ‘fixer,’ Michael Cohen, testifies, sobbing and crying about his time working for Mr. Trump, calling him a ‘con man’ and a ‘cheat’ while also labeling him a ‘racist.’  Behind him sits a smiling Lanny Davis, the famed Clinton crook and Cohen’s personal lawyer.  Shortly after this farce, Mr. Cohen reported to federal prison to serve a lengthy term.   Elsewhere, in Vietnam North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and American President Donald J.

  61. 2021 Saturday: Day 39 of the Biden Regime.  a Texas U.S. District judge rules that the CDC moratorium on evictions is unconstitutional and says that the states should be able to decide this issue for themselves.  The Democrats only care about renters and low-income mortgage holders not giving a damn that landlords and title holders have issues of their own.   Meanwhile, churches in northern California begin reopening as a recent ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court has given them the okay to do so in the increasingly fascist Golden State.  The ruling is temporary as the far left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is currently reviewing the case.  Speaking of fascism, folks, there are rumors that former DNI Ric Grenell could be going up against Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom in the upcoming recall election.  If so, we could end fascism in the Golden State.
  62. 2021 Saturday A: In other California news, the California Supreme Court ends adult trials for teens under the age of 16.   In other fascinating news, the FBI confirms a report from February 21, 2021, one in which pilots aboard American Airlines Flight 2292 reported seeing a long, cylindrical, fast-moving object moving alongside and then above them.  U.S. military and aviation authorities said there was nothing in the New Mexican skies at the time of the report.  It proves yet again that UFO reports continue to increase which means, it could either be a “flap year” or it could be the beginning of something no one wants to see but which might unify the world: an off-world threat.
  63. 2021 Saturday B: Vice President Kamala Harris is NOT planning to overrule the Senate Parliamentarian’s decision NOT to allow inclusion of the $15 per hour minimum wage in the Chi-Vi relief bill the House Democrats manage to pass last night by a slim margin.   Critics claim that the ‘relief bill’ will resemble the Obama “Porkulus” back in 2009 that the Democrats used as a slush fund to fulfill campaign promises made to unions and other connected persons and companies while doing nothing for the average American.  What else is new? 
  64. 2021 Saturday C: Burmese cops in Myanmar launch a concerted effort across the troubled Southeast Asian nation in an effort to quell the ongoing protests that have disrupted the country since the military junta in charge launched a coup against the democratically elected leaders.   In other foreign news, reports declare it to be ‘official’- Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the ‘hit’ on Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Turkey back in 2018.

  66. 2021 Saturday E: NOTE- in the White House 39 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 186,629 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 46,914 people, half of them in nursing homes.   Speaking of the Beijing Bat Bug, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine could soon go into action around the United States thanks to the FDA giving it emergency use approval.
  67. 2021 Saturday F: 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: 3,561,812 confirmed cases, 51,941 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 437 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 341,941 confirmed cases, 5,024 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Utah.  Currently, they have 370,770 confirmed cases, 1,929 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 773,261 confirmed cases, 5,726 confirmed deaths, and 727,779 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Iran.  Currently, they have  1,623,159 confirmed cases, 59,980 confirmed deaths, and 1,386,534 confirmed recoveries. 
  68. 2021 Saturday G: At CPAC, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, applauds President Donald J. Trump for standing up for conservative beliefs and for continuing to stand up for conservative beliefs.  Meanwhile, as documents continue to appear, the American people are learning additional information on how the Federal Bureau of Investigation did everything it could to insinuate intelligence agents into the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey says his state is going to do everything it can to push back on the radical left-wing agenda the Biden-Harris administration is pushing such as the destruction of domestic energy production.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump endorses former aide Max Miller to primary RINO POS Congressman Anthony Gonzalez who voted for the second impeachment in 2022. 
  69. 2021 Saturday H: Leftists continue whining about ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s ‘reckless bombing’ of Iranian militants in eastern Syria earlier in the week.  Even far-left site, Salon blasts Biden for having carried out these airstrikes, saying this is not the foreign policy we expected.’  You stupid dolts!  Don’t you understand that President Donald J. Trump was trying to extricate the United States from wars around the world whereas we predict- pat attention to this- that by the end of the year, Joe Biden will have us in a raging war, just like Lyndon Baines Johnson upped the ante in Vietnam that we lost far too many soldiers.  LBJ promised he would pull the United States out of Southeast Asia.  What he gave them in return were more body bags coming home.  
  70. 2021 Saturday I: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3538 with a $24 million pot on the line: 03, 08, 22, 28, 34, and Mega 22.  Out of 108,946 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $38,895.  The winning ticket was sold in Chula Vista, CA, 91913 at a 7/11.   Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #824 with a jackpot of $85 million at stake: 02, 28, 31, 44, 52, and Powerball 18.   Out of 66,849 winning tickets, the highest winners were 34 people who had FOUR numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $543 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next live effort by Fairport Convention was the wonderful “Off the Desk 2020” (April 26, 2021). As always, these musical veterans deliver a powerful live show that sees them draw millions of fans to their music year after year.  People hunger for the OLD music because much of the new music- ahem, like Maroon Five, the Jonas Brothers, and other twits SUCKS. The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 22 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

ENDNOTES:

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too.

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.

  58. 2014 Monday: Representative John Dingell[viii], an 87-year-old Democrat congressman who has been in office for 29 terms, announces he will retire at the end of his current term.  The reason he gives is that although his health is ‘fine,’ he can no longer do his job effectively because of the ‘hostile climate’ in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Oh, boohoo, congressman, when the Democrats were screwing the GOP, you could care less.  What a schmuck.  Elsewhere, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signed an anti-gay bill that punished gay sex with up to life in prison.  Meanwhile, writer-director-actor Harold Ramis, 69, died in Glencoe, Illinois.
  59. 2015 Tuesday: According to Brainy History, U.S. President Barack Obama[ix] vetoes the Keystone XL Pipeline project, which would extend the existing Keystone pipeline and connect Canadian oil directly to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries; environmentalist nuts claim the pipeline extension will add to climate change.
  60. 2016 Wednesday: The government of Hungary announces it’s going to convene a meeting of its parliament to determine as to whether it’s going to accept European Union-mandated ‘migrant quotas.’  Hundreds of thousands of Middle Eastern, North African, and even Sub-Saharan migrants- mostly males of military age- are pouring into Europe seeking ‘asylum.’
  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.
  62. 2018 Saturday: The U.N. Security Council unanimously demanded a 30-day cease-fire across Syria to deliver humanitarian aid and evacuate the wounded, as the death toll reached 500 from a Syrian bombing campaign in the rebel-held suburbs of Damascus.  Unfortunately, the cease-fire failed to take hold.  Elsewhere, the body of the Rev. 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!

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2022, BLOG POST #4,452

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

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.
