213. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 01, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts? Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go. Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.

  67. 2015 Saturday: After Puerto Rican Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla warned creditors the previous June that if its debt did not undergo restructuring to keep the commonwealth afloat, Puerto Rico fails to make a $58 billion payment on bonds issued by the Public Finance Corporation.  In other news, Palestinian riffraff have been causing trouble for the Israelis who after the scumbags murder an innocent wee babe in his crib by setting him on fire leads Israeli Defense Forces to take the fight to the human garbage.  At least two Palestinian 17-year-olds are killed in the resulting fray.

  69. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms the Honorable Christopher A. Wray the next head of the FBI, thus ending the era of the corrupt James Comey.  Elsewhere, in Herat, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again when a bomb blast at the Jawadia Shia Mosque kills at least 30 and injures and maims countless others.  Got to love the religion!  Next, famed keyboardist with the rock band, Steppenwolf- Goldy McJohn- died in Seattle, Washington, on this date from a heart attack; he was 72 years old.

Trump announces via a tweet that starting September 1, 2019, the U.S. is going to slap a 10-percent tariff on $300 billion of Chi-Com exports.  Good.  The SOBs have been raping the United States for a long, long time.  Time to make those bloodsuckers pay.
  72. 2020 Saturday: Florida is bracing today for incoming Hurricane Isaias.  Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans are working hard to craft a new Chinese Virus relief package.  The Democrats want to continue giving unemployed Americans $600 atop their state unemployment checks while the GOP wants to slash the additional funding to $200 atop the weekly state unemployment checks.  The GOP wants workers to return to work while the Democrats seek to keep them at home, dependent upon federal government until well after the November elections.  Democrats seek to topple the U.S. economy as only then can uber-leftists force Marxism down the throats of the American people.  Finally, BOTH Democrats and Republicans slam President Donald J. Trump for seeking to remove U.S. troops from Germany and redeploy them farther east to countries such as Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, as well as bring some of them home.  Very few NATO member countries fail to pay their annual 2-percent dues.   As for the most prosperous nation in Western Europe and a linchpin of the alliance: Germany wants U.S. troops to protect them from Russia, yet Angela Merkel makes energy deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas pipelines coming directly into her country.  This is bulls**t! 
  73. 2020 Saturday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 17,594,541 confirmed cases, UP 273,147, 679,439 confirmed deaths, UP 5,617, and 10,333,166 confirmed recoveries, UP 178,140.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,686,214 confirmed cases, UP 61,034 new cases, 156,370 confirmed deaths, UP 1,124, and 2,293,228 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,254.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,243 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 112,936 while the number of deaths is 13,588.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Tom Wolf is little more than a hardcore political hack.

Currently, Joe is shy 93,140 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[viii]

[ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.816.  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- Jamaica: $4.711 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,591,181,135,271 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Arab Emirates, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico 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.
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 131 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the horrendous humanitarian disaster along the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.  It’s also her 37th day since her one and only visit to the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.   When we say ‘nothing,’ we mean, “NOTHING.”  It is time she laid down her duties- not that she ever picked them up- and returned home to spend more time with her family.  Adios.  Customs and Border Protection officials report that in the month of June, the authorities caught 190,000 illegals which means many, many more were able to have beaten the dragnet.   Speaking of CBP, former acting commissioner of the organization- Mark Morgan- calls out the hypocrisy of both Joe Biden and the Democrats over their stoppage of the border wall construction- ‘it would be cheaper to complete the wall rather than care for all of these frigging illegal aliens.’
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the horrendous ongoing mess along the southern border, here are the numbers reported by One America News for this disgusting disaster we have no choice but to watch.  It affects all of us, it harms all of us, and it will eat away at the guts of the country until everything implodes.  First, here is the COST THIS DAY of caring for all the frigging illegal aliens: $583,016,384.   Second, here is the COST THIS YEAR: $232,911,831,040.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens estimated to have crossed the border this year: 2,387,159.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals believed to be within the United States: 36,387,160.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- if you have read our blog site for any length of time, then you know we estimated as far back as 2009 when we first began being the voice of the culinary worker and professional chef that back then, we believed the number to be between 35-to-50 million whereas now, we suspect the honest-to-God number is closer to 75-100 million which means we have the seeds of our own demise residing within our country.  DEPORT THEM NOW no matter the difficulty or the cost.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– While sending Cubans back to their communist hellhole, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says that at least 100,000 Haitians will be provided work permits so they can work (and vote) in the U.S. without fear.  Elsewhere, seizures of fentanyl along the southern border are up by as much as 4,000-percent.  CBP officials report the drug comes from labs in Mexico supplied by the Chi-Coms and that it is used in cocaine, heroin, and in pill presses to create fake oxycontin and other pharmaceutical prescribed drugs being used by Americans.  Deaths are going way up once again now that President Donald J. Trump is not in the White House.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Former Iranian thug President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that while HE was president, the government lied for EIGHT years about its countless human rights abuses and violations.  Mahmoud, everyone knows that.  Iranian leaders are ALL liars.  Elsewhere, the government of Myanmar has extended its ‘state of emergency’ with the leader of the coup proclaimed the prime minister.  Meanwhile, the war in Afghanistan continues to rage what with the cities of Herat, Lashkar Gah, and Kandahar being attacked and overwhelmed in some places.  In the western portion of the country, the Taliban has attacked a United Nations compound.
  85. 2021 Sunday J:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As drooling Joe Biden continues trying to discern ways by which he can coerce the American people into taking the Kung Flu vaccines, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, says ‘nope’ to offering $100 incentives to entice her citizens into getting the shots.  (Note- we suspect they could jack it up to $1,000 per jab and people would still say, “HELL, NO, we are not getting this duck dreck”).  Meanwhile, CNN ‘health expert’ John Berman puts the blame for the ongoing ‘pandemic’ onto the shoulders of the unvaccinated while totally ignoring the wide-open borders and the hundreds of thousands of infected illegals pouring across into the United States.  Good try, Mr. Berman, but it’s all bullshit.  This dimwit also says that Joe Biden declared victory ‘way too early.’ 
  86. 2021 Sunday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Two countries- Thailand and Indonesia- are pushing away from using Chi-Com vaccines, finding fault with how they are manufactured and the myriad side effects they cause the recipients.  (Note- NO one should use any vaccine from either the Chi-Coms or the Russians.  Both are f**ked up countries).   Elsewhere, a new poll says that only 45-percent of the American people are concerned about getting the Chi-Vi while 13-percent- hardcore liberals- wet their beds at night in terror of contracting it.   What’s more, Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths and hospitalizations are at record lows.  Yes, the Delta variant of the Chi-Com flu is much more contagious- like the common cold- but much less lethal.  Also let’s not forget that about one week ago today, the Dems were beginning to drive up the fears of the Lambda variant but then abruptly yanked that one back for use at a later date.  Delta comes from India while Lambda comes from Peru. 
  87. 2021 Sunday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Fox News host Judge Janine Pirro says that the government is setting up for future COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions- especially going into 2022 so the Dems and their RINO sycophants can replicate the elections theft they perfected in conjunction with the Chi-Coms in 2020.  Judge Pirro points out that the LEFT is the science deniers.  She also asked what the ‘endgame’ in this horrible scheme is? In other Chi-Vi news, the Centers for Disease Control is paying the National Football League’s Alumni Association $3.5 million to get retired players to coerce current players into taking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines even though they have no desire to do it.  Next, in two San Francisco, California, hospitals, 233 breakthrough cases among fully vaccinated staff have occurred with at least TWO of them hospitalized.  Finally, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, R, is blasting health officials for exaggerating COVID-19’s danger via their frightening hyperbole.
  88. 2021 Sunday M: Political News I– The ‘mask mandate’ imposed by nonagenarian U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is not only unpopular with most Republicans, but  also becoming increasingly unpopular with many Democrats as well- so says the polls.  Speaking of mask mandates, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser like many other Democrats- including “Mumbles” Pelosi and her corpulent sidekick, Rep. Jerrold “Tub-of-Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th CD, all have been captured wandering around sans masks.  Next, Democrats are fretting over the fact that millions of Americans could soon be homeless once the moratorium on evictions vanishes but here’s the deal: most of the $45 billion earmarked for helping renters and mortgage holders keep current remains unused which means it’s resting peacefully in the pockets of Democrat and RINO politicians.   
  89. 2021 Sunday N: Political News II– We have been long hoping for this but it sounds like former Alaska GOP Governor Sarah Palin could return to politics and take a go at highly unpopular current Senator Lisa Murkowski in 2022.  We hope to God she runs and beats this Republican-in-name-only.  She would be an amazing addition to the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, says that ‘IF he gets the gavel in November 2022, he will launch investigations into drooling Joe Biden and extremely corrupt House Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi.   Speaking of moronic Democrats, the police chief of Charleston, South Carolina, Luther Reynolds, says that the Democrats’ Defund the Police scheme is blowing up in their faces.
  90. 2021 Sunday O: Business News– Amazon has been slammed with a $886 million fine over a recent data law breach.  Meanwhile, British-based bank Monzo Bank Ltd finds itself embroiled in a money-laundering mess.
  91. 2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts?  Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go.  Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.  I suspect that once liberal lunatics such as Joe f**king Biden seize power as his good buddy, Justin Trudeau has already done and others follow, the New World Order will be imposed on the global population with the Chi-Coms at the top.  This is evil, coordinated, and propaganda/fake news supported, and I fear if they find a way to force everyone to remain at home another election cycle, it will become a fait accompli.  Although Ukraine is being destroyed, it will be rebuilt once the world is starved into submission, the people driven into poverty, and freeze in the winters and broil in the summers, it will be too late.  Tell me what you think- Chef Hector.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0909 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Verbenas and Saguaros.”  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, giclees, 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 by Beach Boys’ genius, Brian Wilson, is his first seasonal release: “What I Really Want for Christmas,” an album that came out on October 18, 2005.  The Beach Boys had a glorious Christmas album so it would make sense that Brian would do something similar and thus, here it is.  Besides doing some of his classic Beach Boys tunes such as “Little St. Nick” and “The Man with All the Toys,” he delivers some amazing covers of other, classic Yuletide tunes.  As always, he has a superb cast of supporting musicians with which to deliver a delightful holiday package.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure around the holidays.  You will be extremely glad you did- we guarantee it.

181. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JUNE 30, 2022

1941 Monday: During the Nazi drive into the Soviet Union, a pro-Nazi group declares the independence of the Ukraine. As Axis troops entered various towns and cities, they were astounded to see cheering citizens throwing flowers upon them. They were finally free from the hell imposed on them by Soviet thug Josef Stalin. Had the Germans played this differently, the world might be a completely different place.

Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un along the DMZ separating the two Koreas from one another.  President Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to walk across the dividing line onto North Korean soil and then the two crossed into South Korea where they held an impromptu meeting for nearly three hours.  Jealous Democrats and fake news promoters called the whole thing a ‘photo op’ when it might truly lead to peace and destroy Democratic Party 2020 hopes.   Meanwhile, in Khartoum, the capital of the Sudan, protests against continued military rule leads to violence what with seven killed and 181 injured.

Trump.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 302,343 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 157,306 deaths

[xii]        
  74. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.282 per gallon, $3.002 in Florida, $4.013 in Hawaii, and $3.747 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Oregon: $3.600.  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- Nepal: $4.048 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv] . Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,468,462,511,078 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS [xv].  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Arab Emirates, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico 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 position).[xvi] 
  75. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 99 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in command of the southern border and Day No. 5 since her first and only visit to view the destructiveness caused by the policies of Barack Hussein Obama (who is the voice in slobbering Joe Biden’s earpiece).  Speaking of the border, President Donald J. Trump and Texas Governor Greg Abbott are touring the border today, appearing in the epicenter of the invasion instead of doing photo ops in quiet sectors like “Kooky Kamala.”   While in Texas, President Trump says that secure borders and fair elections are the keys to a prosperous and safe United States.’  He also said that not only has Joe Biden ‘sabotaged’ the border wall and that his border policies are ‘absolutely depraved.’  Former Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan says that ‘President Trump’s visit to the southern border is one of actual substance.’
  76. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Communist Chinese dictator Xi Jinping celebrated ‘communist China’s irreversible rise on the world stage’ at the 100th anniversary celebrations of the Chi-Com Party.  Woo-oo.  Big dictator and all.  In other thug news, the government of the Central African Republic is expressing its displeasure with human rights watchers who claim the Russian military advisers in the country are committing human rights abuses on the populace as they do battle with crazed rebels.  The Russians would never misbehave now, would they?  Speaking of both the Russians and the Chi-Coms, Japanese government official Yasuhide Nakayama is warning his American counterparts to beware of a possible joint-Russian-Chi-Com attack on Hawaii as they also attack Taiwan.  We are witnessing a buildup of power by the world’s totalitarian regimes while our ‘president’ plays pocket pool in the basement of the White House.  Not good.
  77. 2021 Wednesday H: Political News I– Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar is little more than a ‘voice for Hamas.’  The screeching harpy has been calling the United States a ‘terrorist nation.’  (Note- strip this stick-like skank of her citizenship along with whatever family members residing in the U.S. and deport them back to Somalia or Eritrea or wherever the f**k they came).   Elsewhere, as “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ star continues to rise, CBS and the Washington Post are trying to launch weak attacks on the popular politician to try to tarnish him.
  78. 2021 Wednesday I: Political News II– Moving on, reports from within the office of ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris continue the tarnish the already tarnished reputation of the woman who is supposedly the ‘vice president.’  She apparently cannot lead her way out of a paper bag and various staff members are throwing their hands up in the air claiming, “IT’S TOO CHAOTIC!”  We all know Joe is not going to last forever unless, of course, as a hologram so one would think the Dems would be scrambling for a qualified number two.  Members working for Joe Biden say that ‘it begins at the top.’  We are beginning a countdown as to how long this goober is going to last.  (We suspect she will be out by November).
  79. 2021 Wednesday J: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I–  Bill Cosby is walking free today after a Pennsylvania judge threw out his conviction.   Meanwhile, actor Allison Mack got three years in prison and a hefty fine for her role in supplying sex slaves to NXIVM cult leader Keith Raniere.  She originally faced 7-to-14 years in the slammer but was able to settle on three years.  Elsewhere, the FBI is moving to offense to counter moves made by cyberhackers.
  80. 2021 Wednesday K: Weather News I– The Pacific Northwest- unaccustomed to temperatures outside the high 80s on occasion are claiming they have lost at least 100 people due to the recent heat wave.  It does at times get flipping hot there and any temps in the mid-to-high 90s are seen as intolerable.  Still, it allows them to claim that global warming is destroying the planet.  (We expect it’s also going to be a FRIGID winter).
  81. 2021 Wednesday L: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former 13th and 21st U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, a big proponent of regime-change wars, died in Taos, N.M., today at age 88 from multiple myeloma.  He was both the youngest and the oldest person to serve in this position.  Many now suspect that he and then-Vice President Dick Cheney were instrumental in pushing President George W. Bush into invading Iraq on the cheap with NO PLAN for what was to come after the toppling of Saddam Hussein.  It was this ‘invasion-on-the-cheap’ and lack of a plan that led to countless deaths of American troops and Iraqi civilians as the insurgency broke out.  We don’t doubt Secretary Rumsfeld’s patriotism; however, we think he and Cheney did it as a means of self-enrichment through the military-industrial-political complex.
  82. 2021 Wednesday M: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former 13th and 21st U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, a big proponent of regime-change wars, died in Taos, N.M., today at age 88 from multiple myeloma.  He was both the youngest and the oldest person to serve in this position.  Many now suspect that he and then-Vice President Dick Cheney were instrumental in pushing President George W. Bush into invading Iraq on the cheap with NO PLAN for what was to come after the toppling of Saddam Hussein.  It was this ‘invasion-on-the-cheap’ and lack of a plan that led to countless deaths of American troops and Iraqi civilians as the insurgency broke out.  We don’t doubt Secretary Rumsfeld’s patriotism; however, we think he and Cheney did it as a means of self-enrichment through the military-industrial-political complex.
  83. 2021 Wednesday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump calls for the pathetic loser General Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who is the American version of German officers Generaloberst Alfred Jodl and Field Marshall Wilhelm Keitel, to resign.  (Note- in our view, nothing is worse than a political general and General Milley is a prime example, one as corrupt and as criminal as were Jodl and Keitel who met their end on the gallows following World War II).  In other Trump-related news, new statistics show that he was way up in 2020 when it comes to non-college-educated Hispanics.
  84. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3573 with a $60 million pot on the line: 12, 13, 16, 18, 25, and Mega 25.  Out of 130,291, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $47,865.  The winning ticket was sold at the Fast and Easy Mart in Benicia, CA 94510.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #859: 24, 29, 50, 65, 66, and Mega 14.  Out of 49,322 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,712 apiece.
  85. 2021 Wednesday:  Friends, please stick around but note, we may be toning things down a bit what with increased pressure from the outside.  Joe Biden is GREAT, communist China WONDERFUL, illegal aliens DELIGHTFUL.  Nancy Pelosi is a GENIUS, AOC a MENSA graduate, and BIG GOVERNMENT preferable to freedom and liberty.  Yes, we are using Newspeak Dictionary 2021.

[i] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering because it was so damned amazing.

[ii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[iii] Democrats in 2020 now want to lower the voting age to 16-year-olds as well as to felons, illegal aliens, and others who should not be able to vote.  If anything, voting age should be raised to 35 because most Americans do not begin undergoing the maturation process as they did 50 or more years ago.  What we are saying is that young people are little more than a bunch of sissies who should never be able to vote.  Let us restore it as the Constitution presented it that people of property should be the only ones able to vote.  You must have a stake in the country to do what’s right for her.

[iv] It’s no wonder as to WHY Jimmy Carter served but one term as president.  The guy was a whoosie.

153. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JUNE 02, 2022

1998 Tuesday: California voters passed Proposition 227 on this date. The act abolished the state’s 30-year-old bilingual education program by requiring that ALL children must undergo instruction in English. This is how it should be as every nation has an official language so the illegal alien-loving scumbags that want every child taught in their native language need to go to prison for subverting the nation—hear that Democrats?

  58. 2019 Sunday: In Game 2 of the 2018-19 NBA Finals in Toronto, Canada, the Golden State Warriors roared back to win the game against home team, Toronto Raptors, by a final score of 109-104.   Elsewhere, Canada temporarily closes its embassy in Venezuela after the government of thug dictator Nicolas Maduro fails to provide accreditation to Canadian diplomats.  The Venezuelans are peeved.  Screw them.
  59. 2020 Tuesday: Thanks to infusion of dark money from the Chinese Communist Party (or so the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes), unrest in American cities continues unabated.  Many cities- both large and small- continue to suffer violent riots and angry protests, supposedly over the murder of George Floyd but now, many are not so sure.   At the same time, the Chinese Wuhan Virus Bat Flu continues causing problems which is somewhat redundant as both the riots and the disease are Beijing’s response to Trump out-negotiating them on the U.S.-communist China Trade Deal.  Here are the COVID-19 stats for the planet today: 6,325,603 confirmed cases, 377,460 confirmed deaths, but 2,727,679 confirmed recoveries which is excellent, as far as recoveries go.
  60. 2020 Tuesday A: In the United States- the place hardest hit by the Bat Flu, here are the numbers for today:  1,866,279 confirmed cases, 107,506 confirmed deaths, but 416,319 confirmed recoveries.  Note: U.S. recoveries would be much, much higher if MOST Blue State governors would not conceal the numbers which would make the number of deaths appear far less.  Shame on them.  Moving on, in the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 115,310 confirmed cases, 4,286 confirmed deaths, but Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him.  Next, in Hawaii, here are the numbers: 652 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 608 confirmed recoveries; thank you, Governor David Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, here are the numbers: 22,130 confirmed cases, 1,129 confirmed deaths, but that dingbat Governor Jay Inslee won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  
  61. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 172,360,613 confirmed cases, +403,338, 3,699,783  confirmed deaths, +9,000 and 155,072,367 confirmed recoveries, +65,616.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,149,029 confirmed cases, UP 11,789 from yesterday’s reporting, 610,912 confirmed deaths, UP 603,[vii] and 27,975,613 confirmed recoveries, UP 46,126.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]  
  62. 2021 Wednesday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 292,966 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 166,643 deaths  
  63. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,791,300 confirmed cases, 63,274 confirmed deaths, and 2,056,809 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,327,989 confirmed cases, 36,924 confirmed deaths, and 1,965,252 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,332 confirmed cases, 500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 439,337 confirmed cases, 5,843 confirmed deaths, and 213,533 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wisconsin, home of Governor Tony Evers, another POS like yesterday’s Ralph “KKK” Northam: they have 674,480 confirmed cases, 7,875 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[ix]   
  64. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,517 confirmed cases, 6,415 confirmed deaths, and 832,764 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Cyprus, 102nd country on the list, a Greek civilization hampered by loads of Turks: 72,515 cases of the virus, 360 confirmed deaths and 69,738 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  65. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,600.38, UP 25.07 points (+0.073%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,756.33, UP 19.85 points (+0.14%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,208.12, UP 6.08 points (+0.14%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.74 per barrel, -0.09 (-0.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,910.90 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $28.31 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.34%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,194.90 per troy oz, +2.20 +0.18%) while the price of COPPER is $4.60 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,850.80 per troy oz, -8.93 (-0.31%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $25,500.00 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Danish Krone, one greenback equals 6.09 and in Djiboutian Franc, a buck equals 177.50 and in Dominican Peso, one dollar equals 56.85 of theirs.[xiv]        
  66. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.204 per gallon, $2.861 in Florida, $3.939 in Hawaii, and $3.579 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. District of Columbia: $3.171.  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- Puerto Rico: $3.244 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,359,625,572,309 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #72 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the disaster on the southern border and yet, she has yet to show up there to do her job.  Speaking of this disaster, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is exacerbating the border crisis by canceling illegal alien protection protocols.’ 
  68. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Beijing orders the shutdown of the June 4th Museum that commemorates what the Chi-Coms did to pro-democracy protesters in Tiananmen Square back on June 4, 1989.  The Chi-Coms claim the museum lacked the proper business license and ordered their closure.  What a load of crap.   Next, we learn today that Iran could soon strike the United States with an EMT weapon which would obliterate not only the U.S. power grid but that of Canada and Mexico at the same time.  (Note- it’s about time we drop a big flipping nuke atop the Iranians.  NOW).  Elsewhere, in advance of the midnight deadline for the Israelis to form a new government, they managed to cobble one together that will signal the END of the Benjamin Netanyahu era.  (Note- expect Iran and their stooges in Hamas and Hezbollah begin lighting Israel up yet again).
  69. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– As Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s star continues to collapse, he has both a movie and a book coming out.  (Note- why is it losers such as “Phony Tony” and Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov[xviii] never see that they are so full of self-importance that it does them in when they take things too far?  Hubris, folks, hubris).  We hear 3,200 pages of Fauci’s emails show him in deep with the Chi-Coms, so the question rises ‘what did YOU know, Dr. Fauci, and when did YOU know it?’  POS.  (Speaking of Fauci, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says there is NO way ‘Phony Tony’ should be given a pass on COVID).  Next, West Virginia is giving away prizes of $1 million as well as hunting licenses and even firearms to get people to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization has approved the Chi-Coms’ Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine for immediate emergency deployment.  It will be going to the Third World.  Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘all evidence leads directly to the Wuhan Institute of Virology when it comes to determining WHO is responsible for trashing much of the world.’  Amen.
  70. 2021 Wednesday I: Business News– the Federal Reserve says that even with ‘hiring troubles and rising prices, U.S. growth is ‘gaining speed.’  Uh, we’ll see.  Next, Papa John Schnatter says ‘America’s small businesses can survive COVID-19 but they sure as heck cannot survive tax hikes.  Meanwhile, economist Stephen Moore told Newsmax TV that ‘more stimulus checks could damage the U.S. economy.’
  71. 2021 Wednesday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Pennsylvania Republicans are flocking to Arizona to observe the ongoing 2020 Election audit occurring in the Copper State. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday K: National Security News– Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that ‘Vladimir Putin is indeed testing feeble old Joe Biden what with all the ongoing hacks of infrastructure and now JBS- the largest meat-packing company in the world.’ 
  73. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– People are still responding in shock to the words that drooled out of Joe Biden’s mumbling mouth yesterday in which, he claimed that ‘white supremacism is the greatest danger facing our country- so says U.S. intel agencies, NOT the Chi-Coms, NOT the Russians, NOT Iran, NOT radicals like Muslim extremists, Antifa, and Black Lives Matter thugs.’  People are aghast at the constant finger-pointing.  Give us some examples you feeble old fool but beware- when you continue ginning up anger against something that no longer exists, what you claim to fear could quite easily return.   
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  Feeling their oats, the state prosecution in the case of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is seeking 30 years imprisonment for the now-convicted cop.  The defense, on the other hand, is seeking time served.  Period.  What we do know is that the feds are going to take a whack at this already beaten apple which strikes us as double jeopardy.  Still, they have to because the majority of the chef-authors at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day believe that due to the corruption of the original trial, Officer Chauvin will get a new trial and most likely will be acquitted.  Meanwhile, the Defund the Police Movement is losing momentum as crime is going up and cities are rushing funding back to law enforcement to stop this massive spike in violent crime.  Speaking of the crime wave, the Miami Police Department’s chief has said it’s ‘going to be a long sizzling summer what with all the shootings occurring around the country.’  Finally, an off-duty FBI agent by the name of Eduardo Valdivia has been charged with attempted murder after getting into an altercation with an unarmed individual aboard a Metro train in a Washington, D.C. suburb in Maryland last year on December 15, 2020.  The fight led to the agent trying to shoot the man.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, one of the BIG ARCHITECTS behind the aforementioned Defund the Police Movement is spending hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to maintain private security around her 24/7/365.  Wow.  Hypocrite.  Next, former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said of President Donald J. Trump that he touched a nerve among the American people who felt left out of the system.  Amen.   Moving on- and this is extremely embarrassing- the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See is trying to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag.  WTF.  Is no place free from this tomfoolery?  Enough with the push of everything gay, we might be better off if the Chi-Coms took the country over.  Enough is enough.  Finally, Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs, communist, cannot take any more- she threw her hat into the right to rip the governorship of her state away from RINO sell-out Doug Ducey.  TWO LOSERS.
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Carol Walker a horse photographer and advocate reported to Tucker Carlson that the Biden regime is sending wild horses to slaughter.  This is NOT right and yet another example of overreach by a criminal regime.   Speaking of the criminal Biden regime, President Donald J. Trump lambasted the regime over its dismantling of the successful “remain in Mexico policy.’  Speaking of the 45th president, he closed his ‘From the Desk of the 45th President’ blog. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: Miscellaneous News I– The Trump Organization is putting up its Washington, D.C. hotel once again.  Next, WOKE threats pushed ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis to move to protect girls’ and women’s sports in the Sunshine State.  Speaking of governors, the one in Ohio- Mike DeWine, RINO, is under fire because he supports both the 1619 Project which is bulls**t and Critical Race Theory which is equally bulls**t.  Vote this POS out of office.  NOW.  Elsewhere, a new report says that sexual assault and racism seem to be the way of life at Virginia Military Institute.  Whoa.
  78. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3565 with a $51 million up for grabs- 09, 23, 27, 28, 41, and Mega 12.  Draw #3565- Out of 131,757 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $22,267 apiece.  One ticket was sold at Uncle Pete’s Café in Westminster, CA 92683 and the other was sold at Eagle Energy in Paso Robles, CA 93446.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #851 with a $268 million jackpot on the line: 06, 07, 11, 66, 67, and Powerball 19.  Out of 92,910 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,168 apiece.
  79. 2022 Thursday: Folks, we encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever the flipping Chi-Coms and their stooges in the White House are up to today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys- “Holland”- came out on January 08, 1973 and was one of their best.  The band at this time had abandoned the West Coast for the Atlantic coast- in Holland- and produced some stunning material.  The lineup once again featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals).  Every tune on this album is excellent, opening with “Sail On Sailor” sung by Blondie Chapin, the absolutely love psychedelic tune, “Steamboat,” sung by Carl and Dennis.  The song has some of the best guitar work of Carl yet, a mind-altering but beautiful lead.  Next, is a three-part “California Saga” sung by Mike and Brian.  Side two opens with “The Trader,” another superb song sung by Carl to the bluesy “Leaving this Town” sung by Blondie and Ricky to Dennis’ tune, “Only With You,” sung by Carl.  The closing track, “Funky Pretty,” is sung by most of the Beach Boys and a stunning tune.  Most of these tunes would show up on the upcoming live album and would be gems.  Oh- on the vinyl version there was an extra disc with a Brian Wilson tale set to music- “Mount Vernon and Fairway.”  Fascinating.  Absolutely amazing from start almost to the finish which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and to make it a part of your daily listening rotation.   You will be glad you did.

  77. 2018 Sunday: In northwestern Pakistan, violent rainstorms rampaged through the region, killing at least 15 and wounding numerous others.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘IF North Korea dismantles its nuclear weapons, the United States will lift sanctions.’
  78. 2019 Monday: Sweden announced a reopening of the rape case against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and will seek his extradition from the United Kingdom.  This could put a hold on the United States that seeks to get him to their country so they can prosecute him for leaking loads of U.S. military secrets stolen by Bradley Manning and others during the Iraq War.
  79. 2020 Wednesday: Here are the latest COVID-19 statistics for the day: around the globe, we have 4,347,015 confirmed cases, 297,197 confirmed deaths, and 1,548,547 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,421,061 confirmed cases, 84,763 confirmed deaths, and 243,517 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have participating chef-authors, California has 71,141 confirmed cases, 2,934 confirmed deaths, and once again, 0 number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t share them.  Next, Hawaii has 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 563 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, Washington state has 17,512 confirmed cases, 975 confirmed deaths, and 0 number of confirmed recoveries because it’s all POLITICAL.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party, beware of communist China-Democratic Party collusion.  Meanwhile, the judge in the Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?   
  80. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 161,801,690 confirmed cases, +724,793, 3,357,598  confirmed deaths, +12,796 and 140,642,031 confirmed recoveries, +65,862.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,623,686 confirmed cases, UP 37,414 from yesterday’s reporting, 598,518 confirmed deaths, UP 740,[ix] and 26,665,848 confirmed recoveries, UP 47,365.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[x]   
  81. 2021 Thursday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 282,522 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 180,087 deaths.      
  82. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,765,100 confirmed cases, 62,564 confirmed deaths, and 2,008,558 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,282,612 confirmed cases, 35,946 confirmed deaths, and 1,870,952 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,450 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 421,460 confirmed cases, 5,674 confirmed deaths, and 204,165 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Veterans Affairs: they have 258,087 confirmed cases, 11,941 confirmed deaths, and 243,172 confirmed recoveries.[xi]   
  83. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,059 confirmed cases, 6,379 confirmed deaths, and 831,888 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Myanmar, a ‘bastion’ of human and civil rights: 143,004 cases of the virus, 3,212 confirmed deaths and 132,069 confirmed recoveries.[xii]     
  84. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,021.45, UP 433.79 points (+1.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,124.99, UP 93.31 points (+0.72%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,112.50, UP 49.46 points (+1.22%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.86 per barrel, +0.04 (+0.06%).  The price of GOLD is $1,825.40 per troy oz., +1.50 (+0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $27.15 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.32%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,212.50 per troy oz, +6.00 (+0.50%) while the price of COPPER is $4.68 per pound, -0.01 (-0.31%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,867.35 per troy oz, +0.22 (+0.01%).[xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.43%).[xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.     In Sudanese Pound, one greenback equals 400.10 and in Suriname Dollar, a buck equals 14.15 and in Swazi Lilangeni, one dollar equals 14.12 of theirs.[xvi]    
  85. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.118 per gallon, $2.896 in Florida, $3.850 in Hawaii, and $3.527 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Dakota: $2.892.  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- Afghanistan: $2.215 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,282,286,307,412 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

93. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 03, 2022

2009 Friday: The economy continues to crash and burn in the United States as another 663,000 jobs fall by the wayside thanks to the Dems having engineered the housing crisis so as to get a Democrat elected in 2008. Unemployment rate goes up to 8.5-percent which is not good, nor will it improve by much over the subsequent seven-plus years.

  14. 1910 Sunday: Mountaineers conquer the highest mountain in North America, Alaska’s Mt. McKinley.
  15. 1915 Saturday: The Austro-Hungarians with German reinforcements begin driving the Russians back in the Carpathians.   The Russians had a unique plan that if they could penetrate through this harsh range of mountains, they might be able to knock the Hapsburgs out of the war.  Although not the strongest member of the Central Powers, the core Austrian, and Hungarian troops and not their Slavic allies were up to the task.
  16. 1916 Monday: During World War I, the horrendous battle of Verdun continues as the French mount counterattacks against recent German domains.  The city of Verdun is a fortress surrounded by a series of fortresses (sort of like Dien Bien Phu would be decades later though not as fortified) and the Germans believe if they can punch through, they might be able to bring France to its knees, possibly knock her out of the war for good.
  17. 1917 Tuesday: Arriving in Petrograd on a closed train from Switzerland, Bolshevik revolutionary Vladimir Ilyich Lenin finally arrives home.  He will soon be up to no good.  Meanwhile, World War I continues on all fronts with heavy fighting on both Western and Eastern Fronts as well as in Africa as the Allies attempt to crush the German Colonial Army in East Africa.  No matter how many times the Brits, South Africans, and now the Portuguese think they have their quarry contained, the Germans are always able to break through the encirclement.
  18. 1918 Wednesday: German troops commence landing in Finland to help their new ally as the Russian Civil War rages between White and Red forces.  Other Allied units are considering landing in eastern and norther regions to help White forces crush the Bolsheviks.  It is becoming a horrible mess.  In Austria, government officials report having received peace feelers from France.
  19. 1919 Thursday: The victorious allies hammering out the post-World War I peace in Paris, France, had sent South African General Jan Smuts to Budapest where a new Soviet-style regime had seized power.  The idea was to negotiate a peace between east and west, but it was failure, the communists had no intention of participating in anything.  All Western diplomatic missions begin pulling out and American wives of Hungarian citizens are to leave with the British.  Things are in an uproar in Eastern Europe thanks to the NEW Soviet Union.  
  20. 1922 Monday: In the USSR, Josef Stalin becomes general secretary of the Communist Party.  Lenin, suffering from poor health did not want to appoint his far more murderous comrade Stalin to this post but Stalin was ‘caretaker’ for the ailing revolutionary.  Soon, Stalin would begin consolidating his power.

  26. 1941 Thursday: Based on intelligence, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill warns Josef Stalin of the impending German invasion of the Soviet Union; however, Stalin does NOT act on it.  Meanwhile, Rasjid al-Gailani forms pro-German regime in Iraq.  Soon, they will be doing their utmost to drive the British occupiers out of their country- or so they think.  Elsewhere, British troops roll into the capital of Eritrea in hot pursuit of the Fascist Italians.
  27. 1942 Friday: The Japanese commenced their first all-out assault on U.S. and Filipino forces defending the Bataan Peninsula.  Elsewhere, the Imperial Japanese carry out a firebombing on Mandalay, the capital of Burma, killing thousands of Burmese and British nationals who haven’t yet fled for their lives.
  28. 1943 Saturday: Richard Manuel, future pianist, and vocalist with the Band[i] was born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, on this date.  Meanwhile, a sad incident occurs in Wellington, New Zealand, when U.S. Marines got into a fight with New Zealand troops of Maori origin.  The Marines did not want them entering the servicemen’s club.
  29. 1944 Monday: British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s obsession with the German battleship Tirpitz in a Norwegian fjord when yet another RAF strike on the vessel fails to do any damage. 
  30. 1945 Tuesday: During World War II, the Nazis begin evacuating the Buchenwald Concentration Camp ahead of the onrushing Allied troops.  Elsewhere on the Western Front, the Battle of the Ruhr Pocket- Nazi Germany’s last remaining industrial center- is underway.

  73. 2021 Saturday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Texas is going to start focusing on securing its elections in the Lone Star State so Democrats won’t be able to interfere or to steal in its elections.  Good for you.  Next, 13 bipartisan states are pushing back on the Biden administration for all the insane laws they are trying to stuff down the throats of free Americans.  Moving on, recent statistics show that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, aka the Fly, DS-NY 14th congressional district, is among the least effective Democrats in Congress among their 240 Democratic members.  However, she is ranked slightly higher than House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who we believe is ranked at number #237.   Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, she is extending proxy voting until May 19 so any timid members can phone in their votes.  Speaking of voting, Wyoming passes a voting law requiring Voter ID.

  75. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will drive taxes way up while sending more American jobs overseas for good as well as lowering wages and minimizing benefits.’  Congressman Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘most people support infrastructure but there is so much crap stuffed into the bill such as making ‘school lunches green’ that it’s a mess on steroids.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that the (bogus) allegations launched against Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district could be a ‘smear job.’[ix]
  76. 2021 Saturday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS V– After Joe Biden lectured the American people as to HOW MANY people they could have in their homes on Easter Sunday, he now is taking incoming fire from the very same American people for his plans to have the entire Biden Clan- every single crooked one of them- in a big family get-together at Camp David.  There you go: liberal hypocrisy on display.  Next, there are rumors that the two underage skanks that murdered the Uber Eats driver earlier this week in Washington, D.C., and showed absolutely NO remorse are going to get a plea deal.  Lock the slut bags up.   Next, rapper DMX is in the hospital following a drug-induced heart attack.  Fine upstanding member of the community to be sure.  Finally, a North Carolina house party gone wild occurred early this morning when 3 people were shot dead, 4 wounded, and the rest in the wind.  How many mass shootings have now occurred under the Biden regime?

[i] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

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

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

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

[v] See previous.

[vi] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[vii] 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.

[viii] Coincidentally the congressional district represented by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

[ix] The Democrats ALWAYS tip their hands as to whom they fear by the bogus allegations they launch at their targets.  Anyone remember former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin?  The Democrats did EVERYTHING they could to destroy her, so terrified of her were they.

  62. 2021 Tuesday:  FOREIGN NEWS- Intelligence analysts now report that both the Russians and their Iranian lackeys interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election to undermine and defeat Donald Trump while pushing Methuselah Joe Biden into the White House, someone easier to control and who would put America LAST rather than FIRST as President Donald J. Trump did.  No one is screaming and wailing like a bunch of banshees over 2020 Election interference while all the while they still snivel that ‘Trump stole the election in 2016 with Russian help.’  Wah, wah, wah.  
  63. 2021 Tuesday A: In other FOREIGN NEWS- the ‘Joe Biden White House’ is confused as to WHY Kim Jong Un won’t respond to feelers put forward by the ‘46th president.’  Kim’s sister, Kim Yo-Jong is urging a hardline stance against the ‘Biden administration’ seeing as how a stumbling Joe Biden on the campaign trail called her brother- the Supreme Ruler- a thug and that he wouldn’t deal with the North Koreans if they did not denuclearize.  Now, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ is puzzled as to why Kim won’t respond to him other than to demand he halt the WAR GAMES with South Korea.  Perhaps it’s this: the Iranians called Joe Biden a second-class idiot today, not even a first-class dimwit.  That sucks and yet, Joe is still giving the Iranians several billion dollars.  Gee whiz.   Meanwhile, former Bolivian President Jeanine Anez has entered prison to do a four-month stretch for supposedly trying to engineer a coup against socialist thug Evo Morales.
  64. 2021 Tuesday B: Border Disaster News- The ‘Biden administration’ announces plans to house at least 3,000 illegal alien brats in a downtown Dallas, Texas, convention center.  Incapable of stopping the invasion along our southern border, Biden officials are busing the illegals all over the country and dumping them out in the streets saying to community leaders, ‘it’s on you.’  Many communities run these illegal aliens out of town on rails.  We don’t want them; we won’t care for them.  Meanwhile, moderate (almost a RINO) Florida Senator Rick Scott has authored a bill that will provide amnesty to so-called DREAMers in exchange for funds to complete the border wall.  White House?  Crickets…
  65. 2021 Tuesday C:  Border Disaster News Pt. II- Joe Biden’s immigration plan does NOTHING to curb the illegal alien invasion.  (Note- he has NO plan.  Goldie).  Next, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas defends his crap-assed performance of taking care of illegal alien minors along the border.  His plan calls for them to be sardined together in worse conditions than anything President Trump ordered.  They sleep on cement floors, they get showers once a week, the food is shit, the babes are crying at night for their mothers, and this POS scumbag says he’s doing a ‘fantastic job.’  Impeach this SOB.  Regarding Secretary Mayorkas, this loser is passing the buck by saying, “We are repairing the system the last guy disbanded.”  Sure.  Speaking of immigration, leading House Dems say there’s a bleak outlook when it comes to passing a coherent immigration bill.  (Note- this is the ONLY policy you need- build the wall and deport them all.  Period.  Goldie).   In other ‘border news,’ 10 Iranian nationals have been arrested along the southern border.
  66. 2021 Tuesday D:   Border Disaster News Pt. III- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., becomes the first top-level Democrat to declare the travesty of the southern border to be a “MAJOR CRISIS.”  Thank you, senator, now do something to stop the invasion.  Meanwhile, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing everything he can to evade having to do something about the border catastrophe.’   Meanwhile, former New York state Congressman Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing whatever he can to deflect away from the predicament he created on the southern border by not stopping the tidal wave.’  Impeach Biden Now. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday E:  Political News Pt. I- House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, lets the Democrats have both barrels and then a reloaded both barrels over them trying to politicize the U.S. military, the National Guard, and federal law enforcement.  They are recruiting trannys, gays, and unfit people to be the frontline in defending our nation, even offering FREE sex-change surgeries for enlisted men, women, and ‘things.’[vii]  We are going down.  (Note- looks like ‘Groping Joe’ Biden is doing everything he can to HELP the Chi-Coms).   Next, people are asking at Day #56 of the Biden administration, WHEN is ‘President Biden’ going to address the American people?  The country’s citizens are growing worried that they have elected a vegetable to the highest job in the world.   We concur. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Political News Pt. II- The ‘Joe Biden tax plan’ continues facing increased pushback from the GOP as it’s a social-re-engineering plan, one that will transfer wealth all over the place while killing jobs, putting more people into the street, and destroying society.  Speaking of the Democrats, they claim to want to bring in Republican input for their ‘infrastructure plan’ (Note- their Green New Deal plan- Goldie) but so far have not met with Republicans.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is still trying to unseat Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district, a woman whose race was certified and who has been serving in the House since taking the oath on January 3, 2021.  Speaker Pelosi is trying to OVERTURN her lawful election.  We must stop Mumbles.   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing EVERYTHING he can to circumvent the U.S. Congress.’
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: My Pillow’s Mike Lindell is launching several countersuits against the crooked Dominion Voting Systems company out of Canada, accusing them of ‘racketeering’ as they try to intimidate him into silence.  We hope you get those scumbags, Mike, they have loads of explaining to do.   Next, President Donald J. Trump calls the Washington Post, aka WAPO, ‘an example of media travesty’ after it lied about the conversation, he held with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger earlier in the year.   Regarding the Peach State, a judge in Georgia says he may order unsealing of the absentee ballots so investigators into election fraud in 2020 can perform a REAL audit.
  70. 2021 Tuesday H:  Democratic Party News, Pt. I: Democrats in the U.S. Senate on the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee are holding hearings on ‘housing in America.’  We know there is a shortage of housing right now because of the pandemic’s halt on new home construction.  What the Democrats seek are multi-family home dwellings so they can force more people into living with one another which is wholly un-American.  Yet that is what they do, they seek to bring Section 8 housing into a neighborhood near you.  Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers are pushing back against Democrats by seeking to include natural gas and nuclear energy as part of our energy creation sources with which to augment unreliable renewable energy sources.  Democrats want wind and solar period.   Finally, Democrats are pushing Senate Dems to get rid of the filibuster which is putting pressure directly atop moderate Democrats like Joe Manchin, D-W. Va.  (Note- the RNC is planning a counter-media blitz against the Democrats’ blitz on HOW GREAT the Chi-Vi Relief Bill is).
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: Political Correctness News- Columbia University is going to put on six different graduation ceremonies- a) Native American; b) Asian; c) Latino; d) LGBTQIA+; e) gringos; and f) first generation students and low-income students.  Wow.  Martin Luther King Jr. would be rolling over in his grave.  For God’s Sake, people!  Meanwhile, Project Veritas released video of Facebook execs discussing how to avoid governmental oversight, rules, regulations, and what they deem to be interference.  Sadly, for Facebook, 48 states currently have monopoly lawsuits going against FB.  
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: U.S. ‘Enemies’ News- On his first trip to Asia, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Democrat, takes it to the Chi-Coms for their regional coercion of their neighbors.  Good for you but wait- don’t YOU have ties to the Chi-Coms, Secretary Blinken?  We believe you do.  This is all smoke and mirrors.  Next, a recent Gallup poll says that MORE Americans now view the Chi-Coms as a major threat following the lab-engineered pandemic they created and then released.   Meanwhile, the bastion of ‘freedom’- Russia- says it’s thinking of banning Facebook from their soil.
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: Popular Culture News- this year’s Grammy Awards were among the worst ever what with a drop from 18.7 million viewers last year to a pitiful 7.9 million this year.  If you like watching hoochie mamas singing about that ‘Wet Hot Pu**y,” then good for you but people can see slut-bags seven days a week walking down the street.   Next, the “Amityville Horror” killer Ronald De Feo Jr. died in the joint at age 69.  Elsewhere, after Sharon Osbourne exercises the chutzpah to defend Piers Morgan on “The Talk,” the show goes into hiatus because the black chick, Sheryl Underwood’s feelings were hurt.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo News- there is speculation that ‘seven Cuomo judges- will rescue him from being removed from office.  The investigation into “Killer Cuomo,” however continues as his accusers are undergoing depositions.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden won’t demand that his fellow groper “Killer Cuomo” be ejected from making COVID-19 calls to encourage people to rush out and get the vaccine.   Sexual deviates always stick together.
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom News- Little Gavin is now out there crowing that ‘if he gets a chance, he will appoint a black woman- ANY black woman to fill Senator Dianne Feinstein’s seat.’  We didn’t know that Senator Feinstein was going anywhere anytime soon.  Still, this is what liberals do when confronting the law, they begin promising to donate money to Planned Parenthood, wage war on the NRA, and do everything else liberals love.  Too little too late.   Newsom has awoken to the fact that he is probably going to lose his seat so he releases a commercial in which he blames HIS problems on: 1) the Far-Right; 2) QAnon; 3) Proud Boys; 4) Oath Keepers; 5) Donald J. Trump; 6) Newt Gingrich; 7) Mike Huckabee; 8) conspiracy theorists; and 9) everyone else he can blame HIS disasters upon and then some, i.e., white supremacists, racists, bigots, haters, and insurrectionists.   Michael Reagan says living in California is like in the Germany of the 1930s.  Could not have said it better ourselves.  Thanks, Mike.
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: The National Rifle Association seeks to delay the deposing of its board members as the bankruptcy case makes its way through the courts.  Meanwhile, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform says that ‘Joe Biden wants to raise tax rates higher than what the Chi-Coms have, especially on corporations, and in so doing will kill wages, destroy jobs, and eliminate retirement savings.’  He also said that ‘increasing utility rates is akin to raising the taxes although it’s not an official raising of taxes.’  By raising corporate taxes, it diminishes the return on investments which will destroy retirement programs.  The government also seeks to legalize marijuana across the country so that it can reap the tax dollars.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: National Guard troops from Guam visited the office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R- GA 14th congressional district, because she mentioned the name of the U.S. territory in a speech and referred to it as a ‘foreign nation.’[viii]  She blasted their ‘visit’ as little more than a political stunt.   Meanwhile, scientists are proposing to put a doomsday vault on the moon.   Next, ex-Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin wants George Floyd’s 2019 arrest released to the jury in his trial.   Meanwhile, New Mexico is advancing a bill that will allow assisted suicide for the terminally ill within their state.

  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: 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: 3,626,327 confirmed cases, 56,621 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 several days now).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 353,322 confirmed cases, 5,192 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wyoming, aka the Equality State: currently, they have 55,352 confirmed cases, 693 confirmed deaths, and 54,231 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 821,762 confirmed cases, 6,037 confirmed deaths, and 787,893 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Canada, the home of the Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Rush: 915,868 cases of the old Wuhan Meat Market Malady, 22,519 confirmed deaths and 861,832 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, what’s the point: communist nations ALWAYS lie- you know it and we know it.
  80. 2021 Tuesday R: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,825.95, DOWN 127.51 points (-0.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,471.51, UP 11.859 points (+0.09%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,962.71, DOWN 6.23 points (-0.61%).  The price of GOLD is $1,729.40 per troy oz., -1.50 (-0.09%) while the price of SILVER is $25.99 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.07%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,215.40 per troy oz, -3.70 (-0.30%) while the price of COPPER is $4.06 per pound, -0.01 (-0.34%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,498.70 per troy oz, -0.02 (-0.50%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.91 per barrel, +0.10 (+0.15%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.61.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Aruban florin, one greenback equals 1.78.  
  81. 2021 Tuesday S: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.856 per gallon, $3.558 in Hawaii, and $3.281 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: $28,058,245,351,045 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.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: In some shocking news, a stockpile of commercial grade fireworks blew up in Ontario, California, killing two people.  The Ontario police chief said that officers were called on scene for another issue when the garage blew up killing the two and injuring others.  Next, Joe Biden’s handlers are establishing a commission with which to study packing the U.S. Supreme Court as well as other courts.  In other court news, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI, sent a new letter to the FBI demanding a FURTHER investigation into U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.   Senator Whitehouse- a partisan POS- says the FBI investigation back in 2018 was ‘flawed’ and that witness information went into the circular file.  What a scumbag.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Islamic jihadists attacked locals in Niger’s Tillaberi region killing at least 58 people and wounding countless others.   The people were returning home from a cattle market in Banibangou when the jihadists came racing up on motorcycles and began lighting the startled villagers up.  After they killed as many as they could and left the wounded to die, the reputed al-Qaida “B-team” then set local granaries ablaze in the hopes of causing famine throughout the region.  Time for the French Foreign Legion to arrive on scene and begin exterminating these Boko Haram-loving murderers, rapists, and thugs.
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: NEWS FLASH: In Atlanta, Georgia, 8 people are shot dead at a massage parlor, most of the dead being female staffers.  It appears that happy endings for the night were no more.  The suspect whose image and car were captured on security tape was apprehended more than 100 miles south of the city.  No one knows the motive yet; it could have been fraud, it could have been QAnon, it could have been someone gave the shooter the clap.  We will await further developments.
  85. 2021 Tuesday W: Mega-Millions Draw #1642 with a jackpot of $93 million on the line tonight: 10, 41, 46, 52, 69, and Mega 08.  Stay tuned for results on the winner(s).  Okay, out of 66,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $437 apiece.
  86. 2022 Wednesday:  Things are moving so fast that it’s difficult to keep up.  After a heavy news day yesterday, we hope the Unseen Hand manipulating Chi-Com Joe Biden takes it a little bit slower today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Canadian guitarist Robbie Robertson- the main songwriter of the Band- released his first self-titled album, “Robbie Robertson,” on October 27, 1987.  It is easy to visualize that Robertson was the guiding light behind the Band as his songwriting always rises to the top like cream atop milk.  Joining the legendary guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist are Tony Levin of King Crimson on bass, Manu Katché on drums, Daniel Lanois on guitars/vocals as well as guest appearances from Garth Hudson and Rick Danko of the Band, all of U2, and loads of other five-star musicians and performers.  This is a worthy addition to any record collection which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your growing collection in the format, condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.

[i] The Soviets would do what communists always do: march their prisoners in and give them lead to the back of the head.  Then, they haphazardly bury the corpses and leave it for others to find.  Russian scumbags.

[ii] Likewise, we expect to offer the music of Alice Cooper sometime between 2025-2027.  Please stay tuned.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band at some point within the next 5-7 years.  Stick around for the glorious day when we do.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Heart within the next 15 years or so.  Stick around for the glorious, mind-altering day.

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

[vi] Not sure when we will promote the music of Van Halen but when we do, we will also present the music of Sammy Hagar so please stay tuned.

[vii] Jessie Jane Duff, GySgt. U.S.M.C. Retired says the purpose of the military is to break things and kill people, not to serve as some sort of laboratory for left-wing social scientists to transform our society into a freak show.  The U.S. Army is second-guessing its gender-neutral policies after record numbers of young women can’t cut the mustard (but they can always like the jar).  Instead of recognizing the differences between genders and working within that framework, the Pentagon is reducing standards for men so women can score better on their physical tests.  It sounds like it’s getting to be time to move somewhere else because an army of gays and trannys is not going to defend our nation.  Note- this is ALL Barack Hussein Obama’s fault- he’s the one who f**ked up the military.

[viii] Look, about ten years ago, Democratic Congressman Hank Johnson, Georgia, asked military leaders if MORE assets were sent to Guam would the island capsize and sink into the sea.  This moron STILL sits in Congress.  Whatever MTG said is nothing compared to this Rhodes scholar.

37. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 06, 2022

2021 Saturday E: The Biden administration ends another Trump era agreement, this one in which, asylum-seeking illegal aliens were able to be returned back to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

  62. 2017 Monday: U.S. Representative Matt Gaetz, R-Florida, proposes a bill to eliminate the Environmental Protection Agency.  Next, Senate Dems are holding a ’24-hour protest vote,’ trying stall Trump Education secretary nominee Betsy DeVos, someone they fear who is going to overturn Obama-Biden era regime rules on college campuses. Meanwhile, former U.S. secretaries of state and ‘hundreds of companies’ all support the suit against President Trump’s ‘Muslim ban.’  Elsewhere, Queen Elizabeth II of England marks her 65th year as monarch.  
  63. 2018 Tuesday: The president of Poland- Andrzej Duda- signs a controversial law that outlaws anyone from saying that the country and its people were complicit in the crimes committed on its soil by the Nazis during the Holocaust.  Many try to infer that the Poles aided the Nazis in helping exterminate the Jews.   Meanwhile, the U.S. calls for a ceasefire as Syrian government airstrikes on rebel positions have killed dozens.  Elsewhere, as the Winter Olympic Games approach in South Korea, Vice President Mike Pence says additional sanctions could be coming for North Korea.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: As problems continue to rage in Virginia over Democrat Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam’s racist photos in his college yearbook, one of the people who might take his place should he choose to resign- Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax- has his own problems.  In more #MeToo allegations, a woman who worked for the lieutenant governor accuses him of rape, of forced sodomy and the like.  What is going on in this once reputable state?  What is up with all these Democrats?  The state’s AG- Mark Herring- says, ‘yup, I wore blackface at a party back in 1980 while in college.’  Folks, the Democrats always accuse their political enemies of being RACISTS yet here are three bigwig Democrats and two of them are racists and one a sexual offender.  You can’t make this stuff up, folks, you simply cannot.
  65. 2020 Thursday: Following a speech by President Trump at the National Prayer Breakfast, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi goes to the microphone banks and gives one of her most incoherent, rambling, ambling speeches yet, attacking the president, condemning the president, and trying to justify tearing up the president’s speech at Tuesday night’s SOTU address.  How this senile crone clings to power is beyond millions of Americans; we expect her to pay the price on Election Day 2020 becoming the first House speaker to lose the position not once but twice, along with her congressional seat.  Later, President Trump thanked his supporters in both House and Senate, as well as his cabinet members, and other assembled VIPS.  The speech was absolutely wonderful and concluded with the president’s determination to help as many Republicans win or keep their seats in November.  Godspeed, Mr. President, Godspeed.  Meanwhile, in China, more and more images come out via social media showing the outbreak of the corona virus to be far worse than what the communist authorities claim.  We think a biological warfare experiment went awry and now the world is going to pay the price for their bumbling.  Thank you, President Xi, thank you.
  66. 2021 Saturday:  One America News reports that thousands of Americans are receiving tax forms for unemployment insurance for which they did not file.  Next, the TSA announces that passengers who refuse to wear facemasks could face fines of up to $1,500 per citation.  Meanwhile, a recent Rasmussen poll says that most Americans do not believe the ‘news media’ is aggressive with Joe Biden as it was with President Donald J. Trump.  We concur.  Elsewhere, the CEO of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce- Thomas Donohue- announces that he will be leaving his position in favor of Suzanne Clark.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump returns to social media with a post on Gab.
  67. 2021 Saturday A: In New York’s 22nd U.S. House District, the one in which, Republican Claudia Tenney finally won her old seat back, Democrat Anthony Brindisi, the beaten Democrat, is now crying about the Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic software.  IF you agree to taking another LOOK into the 2020 Presidential Election and how it was stolen from one candidate and given to another, perhaps we will take another look at this House race.  Otherwise, STFU.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden has stripped President Donald J. Trump of his security clearance.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he’s bringing back the ‘President’s weekly radio address.’  Let’s look for an earpiece folks so we can know that someone is putting words in his ear.   Finally, the U.S. Supreme Court partially lifts California’s ban on church gatherings.
  68. 2021 Saturday B: Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, D-NY, says that to accept the GOP counter COVID-19 bill is to commit ‘unconditional surrender.’  Elsewhere, the people are Myanmar are out in the streets protesting the coup against their government even with the Internet shut down.  The interesting thing about this is the Biden administration is upset about the coup in Burma but could care less that he won the 2020 Presidential Election via a…coup.  The Democrats, the RINOs, the Chi-Coms, and Canada- among others- conspired to topple President Trump and to then shove the senile usurper into his place.  What the flaming f**k? 
  69. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 105,461,681 confirmed cases, +238,473, 2,300,891, confirmed deaths, +7,628, and 58,645,012 confirmed recoveries, +144,616.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,054,709 confirmed cases, up 78,221 from yesterday’s reporting, 463,090 confirmed deaths, UP 1,837, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  NOTE- in the White House 17 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 134,662 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  Maybe you will be a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State?
  70. 2021 Saturday D: 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: 3,395,385 confirmed cases, 43,647 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,286 confirmed cases (again, Hawaii is no longer reporting their case numbers in more than a week), 416 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 323,334 confirmed cases, 4,526 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Georgia.  Currently, they have 932,912 confirmed cases, 14,858 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 680,856 confirmed cases, 5,020 confirmed deaths, and 590,822 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: the United Kingdom.  The UK has 3.929,835 confirmed cases, 112,092 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed deaths.  What a load of crap, share the TRUTH! 
  71. 2021 Saturday E: The Biden administration ends another Trump era agreement, this one in which, asylum-seeking illegal aliens were able to be returned back to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.  Oh, thank you, Joe, for swarming our country with millions more illegal aliens to whom you are going to grant citizenship.  Can the country survive?  Elsewhere, Michigan is the first state revamping the state’s GOP leadership and folks, they are recruiting strong Trump supporters which is good.   Meanwhile, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers wins his third NFL MVP Award making him only the sixth person in NFL history to win three or more such honors.  Congratulations, Aaron.   Finally, the now discredited Lincoln Project continues imploding as yet another phony- in this case, Jennifer Horn- threw in the towel following disclosures about gay sex addict John Weaver.
  72. 2021 Saturday F: Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3532 with an $18 million jackpot on the line: 04, 16, 32, 35, 45, and Mega 17.  Out of 108,912 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $19,457 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #818 with a $30 million jackpot up for grabs: 01, 16, 48, 49, 65, and Power 08.  Out of 54,318 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,839.
  73. 2021 Saturday G: The former 60th U.S. Secretary of State George P. Schultz died at his home in Stanford, California, at age 100 today.  A Republican, he served under President Ronald Reagan / served from July 16, 1982, to January 20, 1989.  Prior to this, he served his nation as its 62nd U.S. Treasury secretary.  In this capacity, he served under President Richard Nixon from June 12, 1972, to May 08, 1974.
  74. 2022 Sunday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Just when you think Sandy Denny’s ‘well’ is dried up, the record label and the family dives into the deep end and comes to the surface with still more.  “The Notes and the Words: A Collection of Demos and Rarities” came out on May 21, 2012, a four-disc set featuring a vast collection of this legendary vocalist’s repertoire.  There are lost nuggets, newly discovered gems, relics long lost and thought destroyed and holy, moly, there they are.  If you think you have every shred of music by this famed vocalist, think again.  Just like other bands from the psychedelic era in the U.S.- Quicksilver Messenger Service, Jefferson Airplane, the always dependable Grateful Dead, and some of the others- boom, bam, there’s always something else deep within the vaults and that is what you have here.   Currently, Amazon.com is selling it for around $388.15 but what the heck- now that you can track the price, put it on your tracker and follow it until you can get it at the price that works best for you- you will be extremely glad you did.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

13. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JANUARY 13, 2022

59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020. What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?

  53. 2016 Wednesday: The largest Powerball jackpot in history- $1.6 billion- was divided among three winners.  Elsewhere, in the Pakistani city of Quetta, angry jihadists carry out a suicide bombing on a polio center, killing at least 15 people, and wounding far too many others.  Ah, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes yet again.  Meanwhile, in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, ISIS thugs attack the Pakistani Consulate killing at least 9 people and wounding another 12 or more.  Finally, Iran frees 10 U.S. Navy sailors it took into custody when their two patrol boats ‘strayed into Iranian waters.’  No, they did not enter your waters, you scumbags.
  54. 2017 Friday: Turkish strongman Tayyip Recep Erdogan announces that Turkish forces will remain on the island of Cyprus for the rest of time.  They invaded the island during the 1970s and fought to displace the Greeks.  The island has been divided between the two countries ever since.  Speaking of thugs, for the first time the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons blasts Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and members of his regime for using chemical weapons on innocent civilians.
  55. 2018 Saturday: In the NFC Division Round, the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Atlanta Falcons in a low-scoring affair by a score of 15-10.  In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots wipe out the Tennessee Titans with a final score of 35-14.  Meanwhile, thanks to Deep State resistance, a false alarm that warned of a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii sent the islands into a panic, with people abandoning cars on a highway and preparing to flee their homes; officials apologized and said the alert was sent when someone (obviously on purpose) hit the wrong button during a shift change.  So far, the feds have not identified the prick.
  56. 2019 Sunday: In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots pound the snot out the Los Angeles Chargers with a final score of 41-28.  In the NFC Division Round, the New Orleans Saints wallop the Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 20-14, knocking Super Bowl LII champion Eagles out of the running.   Elsewhere, following insane elections in Venezuela in which, many people believe the President of the National Assembly Juan Guaidó won, Caracas police briefly detain him after he said he ‘was prepared to take power.’  This would create an international crisis.
  57. 2020 Monday: The people of Iran continue protesting their illegitimate government by calling for the ouster of the grand ayatollah, someone who should have been droned long ago.  Meanwhile, Sen. Cory “Creepy” Booker, D-NJ, becomes the fifteenth Democrat to leave the running for the 2020 Democratic nomination.  He does this because he has 0-percent support and cannot raise money.  Also, because the man is stranger than f**k and claims NOT to be gay.  Sure, Cory, sure.  Elsewhere, the U.S. expels 21 Royal Saudi Air Force pilots from the country following the shooting in Pensacola, Florida, which took the lives of American service personnel.  The Saudis were found to have jihadist sympathies.  Will we ever learn?
  58. 2021 Wednesday: Although many called for leniency, the feds executed Lisa Montgomery at its Terre Haute prison facility, the first woman executed in 67 years.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court blocks mail delivery of the abortion drug during the Chi-Com-caused pandemic.  Meanwhile, Acting Attorney-General Rosen warns of violence both in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day as well as in all 50 states.  Finally, pot-smoking Mayor Bill Di Blasio of New York City says the city is ‘canceling $17 million in contracts with Donald J. Trump.’  Wow.
  59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020.  What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?  Moving on, we learn that ‘fewer than 10 scurrilous Republicans’ support the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump which is occurring now on Capitol Hill in the U.S. House of Representatives.  As the impeachment BS continues, Representative Matt Rosendale, R-Montana, says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, should be ‘stripped of her leadership role,’ something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  Meanwhile, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces he will select another Obama-Biden alum- Samantha Power- to head USAID.  Next, the U.S. Senate announces confirmation hearings for incoming Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen beginning on January 19, the same day the Democrats want to impeach President Trump a second time.
  60. 2021 Wednesday B: Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax TV says that ‘in a strange way President-elect Joe Biden is listening to his outgoing predecessor President Donald J. Trump in that he is nominating what the country perceives to be moderates to work in his administration and keeping the ultra-left riffraff at arm’s length.’  Interesting point.  Speaking of the 45th president, a recent McLaughlin poll says Trump’s approval ratings have been holding at 49-percent, his highest since the election.  Meanwhile, the U.S. special envoy to South Korea Henry Harris will be leaving his post next week.  Elsewhere, Newt Gingrich says there is ‘enormous danger’ in the ability to dictate whether President Donald J. Trump (or anyone else for that matter) can seek the presidency ever again.’  Nope, times are changing for the worst, folks.  Finally, ever-traitorous “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, the current Senate majority leader, signals he will go along with the second impeachment of President Trump.  What a guy.
  61. 2021 Wednesday C: President Donald J. Trump’s EPA through its push to impose industry-backed regulations is a tactic by which, it can tie the hands of incoming President-elect Joe Biden’s hands when it comes to forcing Green New Deal BS on the American people.  This will allow industry to have a greater say in proceeding with projects than the federal government, which is good, extremely good.  Meanwhile, YouTube has suspended President Donald Trump’s channel on their site.  Censorship run amok yet again, folks.  Elsewhere, at the request of President-elect Joe Biden, Operation Warp Speed’s Dr. Moncef Slaoui has submitted his resignation letter.      
  62. 2021 Wednesday D: Please stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3525 with a jackpot of $11,000,000 up for grabs: 03, 17, 21, 27, 35, and Mega 05.  Out of 151,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $25,559 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at Riviera Foods in Kelseyville, CA 95451 and Shell in Irvine, CA 92606.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #811 with a jackpot of $550,000,000 at stake: 04, 19, 23, 25, 49, and Powerball 14.   Out of 424,484 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,768,497 apiece.  One winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in San Diego, CA 92111 and Paul’s Market in San Jose, CA 95112.
  63. 2021 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has been impeached a second time what with 219 Democrats and 10 Republicans voting for and 197 Republicans voting against (232 for, 197 against).  What a disgrace for our country, a politically-motivated impeachment designed to prevent Donald J. Trump from running ever again for the White House.   One thing we have learned is that there is NOT enough support among Republicans for impeachment so the Senate might waffle on forging ahead with a trial.  The negative repercussions could be tremendous for BOTH sides.  Time for President Trump to release ALL UFO files, all JFK assassination files, and all files on the corruption and crookedness of the entire Biden Family.  Do it NOW, Mr. President, do it NOW before our enemies take advantage of our insane politics and light us up.  
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 92,240,036 confirmed cases, +856,492, 1,975,707, confirmed deaths, +18,955, and 50,922,412 confirmed recoveries, +384,517.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 23,009,789 confirmed cases, up 212,059 from yesterday’s reporting, 383,290 confirmed deaths, UP 4,270, and 9,989,455 confirmed recoveries, UP 73,884.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: 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: 2,815,933 confirmed cases, 31,105 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 312 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 283,363 confirmed cases, 3,869 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nebraska: currently, they have 177,883 confirmed cases, 1,847 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 510,063 confirmed cases, 3,771 confirmed deaths, and 429,929 confirmed recoveries. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,060.47, DOWN 8.22 points (-0.026%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,128.95, UP 56.52 points (+0.43%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,809.84, UP 8.65 points (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,847.40 per troy oz., -7.50 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.36 per troy ounce, -0.207 (-0.81%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,105.40 per troy oz, -5.30 (-0.48%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.003 (+0.08%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,397.10 per troy oz, +20.90 (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.79 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: In other economic news, consumer prices rose by 0.4-percent.  December saw the largest increase in four months.  The U.S. Department of Labor said that excluding core prices- energy costs and food prices- consumer prices rose by 0.1-percent and just 1.6-percent over the past 12 months.  Rising oil and gas prices as well as increases in the cost of food driving the increase.  Meanwhile, the U.S. bans cotton and tomato imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China amid concerns over the appalling human rights abuses and the rampant use of Uighur slave labor.  Human Rights Watch says that 2020 was the WORST year for human rights abuses in that repressive totalitarian country since 1989.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms harvest organs from their prisoners and then sell them at astronomical prices around the globe.  Horrible. 
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Elsewhere, the CEO of Parler says the social app may not return after being de-platformed by a cabal of BIG TECH social media and shadow authoritarians working from behind the scenes to squelch FREE SPEECH.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump gave a five-minute address from the Oval Office imploring Americans NOT to engage in violence even though rumors abound about what’s to come NEXT WEEK.  A poll conducted today says that a majority of Americans expect more violence to follow on the heels of the violence the nation witnessed last week.  Can anyone say, “CHI-COMS are behind this?” They are mad about criticism about Hong Kong as well as their use of slave labor, also U.S. reaching out to Taiwan, the REAL CHINA.
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: As everyone now knows, 10 Republicans voted against President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charges of stirring up ‘an insurrection’ even though we know they know that was NOT the case.  Here are their names: (A) Rep. John Katko, NY (B) Liz Cheney, WY (C) Adam Kinzinger, IL (D) Fred Upton, MI (E) Jaime Herrera Beutler, WA (F) Peter Meijer, MI (G) Dan Newhouse, WA (H) Anthony Gonzalez, OH (I) Tom Rice, SC and (J) David Valadao, CA.  This last congressman is especially painful for those of us from California who contributed money to help Valadao take his seat back from carpetbagger T.J. Cox.  He then turns around and drives a shiv in the president.  I guess we will be coming for him in 2022.  Ingrate.  Meanwhile, Chef Vladimir in Washington state says both Newhouse and Beutler are proving to be disappointments.  Will someone please create a vaccine for RINO Republicanism?
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Famed bassist Tim Bogert died in San Diego, California, at age 76 from the effects of cancer.  He played with Vanilla Fudge[vi], Beck, Bogert & Appice[vii], Cactus[viii], and Vanilla Fudge again until he retired from touring in 2010 due to a horrible motorcycle accident.
  71. 2022 Thursday: Friends, stick around and discover the news of the day along with all of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next release from guitar legend Richard Thompson was a five-CD box set: “RT- The Life and Times of Richard Thompson” (February 17, 2006).  This massive collection is broken into five separate portions featuring everything from classic cuts to amazing live renditions to album cuts upon which, he played as a guest or contributed to as a session musician.  One finds a nearly 170-page booklet that goes into great detail about the life and times of this phenomenal artist and priced at less than one hundred bucks, what the heck can you lose?  If you have yet to introduce the music of this lesser-known guitar virtuosos, well this is a glorious (and economical) way in which one can do it.  We hope you rush out to your nearest seller of classic rock music and add it to your collection.  You will be extremely glad you did, that we guarantee.

Wednesday, January 13, 2021, Today in History:  

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


Thursday, January 13, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Within the next two decades, we hope to present the music of Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.

[ii] We are unclear as to when we will celebrate the music of this long-lived group but when we do, you will be the first to know.

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.

[iv] We have no idea when we will begin promoting the music of this fabled country artist but you can be sure we will promote Johnny Cash at some point during the next two decades.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “The Yellow Submarine” appeared on Sunday, 27-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We promoted the music of Vanilla Fudge beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  We hope you will seek this band out and add their music to your growing collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] We fucked up when we failed to celebrate the music of the hard-rocking band, Cactus, at the same time we shared the music of Vanilla Fudge with you.  We hope to rectify that mistake sometime in the next 15 years.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  68. 2020 Tuesday:  You know as well as we do that the Democratic stooges are fast at work terrifying the GOP into folding on Trump and the 2020 Electoral College confirmation coming up on January 6, 2021.  Their Chi-Com backers are urging them on, so we encourage everyone to stick around to discover what the heck they’re up to…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album, “The Old Kit Bag,” on February 10, 2003.  Once again, the legendary guitarist delivered the goods which music critics consider to be among his best works yet did not fare well in the stores.  Grunge was exploding all over the place and it was difficult for old-timers to remain current yet in our eyes, Mr. Thompson is ALWAYS current no matter what anyone else thinks.  Joining the smoking hot guitarist/vocalist are (1) Michael Jerome (drums, percussion); (2) Danny Thompson (bass); and (3) Judith Owen (vocals).  For some, Thompson is an acquired taste and for loads of others, his music is always a joy to behold.  We hope you will investigate this one to your hearts’- and ears’- content.  We think you will be glad you did.

  47. 2009 Tuesday: President Barack Obama held formal, closed-door talks in Beijing with Chinese President Hu Jintao.  Meanwhile, Sarah Palin’s autobiography “Going Rogue” hit bookstores; 1 million copies sold in less than two weeks.  Wow.
  48. 2010 Wednesday: Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski becomes the first write-in candidate to win an election in the United States since 1954.  Meanwhile, researchers trapped 38 antihydrogen atoms.  It was the first-time humans had trapped antimatter.
  49. 2011 Thursday: Divers from Sweden discover the wreck of Swedish warship, the Svardet, a ship that sank during the Battle of Oland in 1676 by the Russians.
  50. 2013 Sunday: Georgia swears in its new President, Giorgi Margvelashvili.  Elsewhere, intense thunderstorms and tornadoes swept across the Midwest, causing extensive damage in several central Illinois communities, killing more than half a dozen people.  Meanwhile, a Tatarstan Airlines Boeing 737 crashed 450 miles east of Moscow, killing all 50 people on board.
  51. 2014 Monday: After allowing women to be priests for the past 20 years, the Church of England makes significant changes that allow women to become bishops.  Meanwhile, Martin Salia, a doctor who caught Ebola while working in a hospital in the West African nation of Sierra Leone, dies from the disease in a hospital in Nebraska.  He came from Africa aboard a medical transport, already in serious condition and never recovered.
  52. 2015 Tuesday: As the French authorities continue seeking the suspects who murdered loads of people in a Paris nightclub and in other parts of the city, they detain seven suspects and kill two jihadists in a raid.   Meanwhile, the United States, France, and Russia step up airstrikes across Syria as they seek to annihilate the ISIS trash.  The Russians- to the shock of all- are accused of lighting up several hospitals.  It’s what the Russians do.
  53. 2016 Thursday:  The British government threatens energy companies not to use Brexit as an excuse for raising rates on English utility customers. 
  54. 2017 Friday: POS Senator Al Franken- Democrat from Minnesota- tearfully apologized to a woman who had accused him of forcibly kissing her and groping her during a 2006 USO tour; the lib said he remembered the encounter ‘differently.’  What a pig.   Elsewhere, Ronan Farrow continues explaining how he ‘broke’ the Harvey Weinstein scandal, something NO other news media would touch with a ten-foot pole.

Trump.
  57. 2020 Tuesday: Things continue going from bad to worse for the decrepit old House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi as Burgess Owens, Republican, wins a U.S. House seat in Utah’s 4th District, flipping it from BLUE to RED with his victory over incumbent Congressman Ben McAdams, a Democrat.   As GOP victories continue to pile up, it is becoming extremely clear that whatever ‘majority’ the Democrats enjoy in the House will be impotent, powerless, and pathetic.  The blame rests entirely on the sagging shoulders of Speaker Pelosi.  Democrats colluding with Canada and communist China did not bring them the expected victories they guaranteed.   Speaking of the 2020 Elections, things are beginning to go against the Democrats in Nevada as judges step in and additional votes show strong support for President Donald J. Trump and the GOP.
  58. 2020 Tuesday A: NATO warns the organization that withdrawal from Afghanistan could pose heightened dangers for the West.  Leaving troops there another 10 years is not going to make things any better.  President Trump is trying to speed up the withdrawal of U.S. troops from the crap-hole country.  Meanwhile, late last night, the SpaceX Dragon crew capsule docked with the International Space Station- congratulations, SpaceX!  Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate grills Mutt and Jeff- Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter’s Jack Dorsey- over their ongoing attempts to censor things they don’t like including President Donald J. Trump’s words.  We learn of a program called Centra that allows the ‘social media twerps’ to follow their users across a variety of social media spectrums compiling dossiers on every user of their sites.  Not only is this dangerous, but it is also outright EVIL as none of these little closet fairies has any right to censor anyone, much less track anyone across the World Wide Web.  Senators, do your duty and break them up as well as Google and deport Sundar Pichai and his family back to Bangladesh or wherever the hell the scumbag emanates.
  59. 2020 Tuesday B: Tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1608 with a $135 million jackpot on the line- stay tuned for the numbers.  Here are the numbers- 08, 13, 35, 46, 68, and Mega 16.  The highest winners were two people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,515 apiece.
  60. 2020 Tuesday C: Here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 55,333,374 confirmed cases, UP by 655,215 cases, 1,332,390 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,987 deaths, and 35,613,120 confirmed recoveries, UP by 514,614 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 11,395,550 confirmed cases, UP by 195,059 new cases, 251,551 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,548 new deaths, and 6,040,795 confirmed recoveries, UP by 83,160 new recoveries.
  61. 2020 Tuesday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 1,051,642 confirmed cases, 18,317 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 16,711 confirmed cases, 222 confirmed deaths, and today, NO mention of confirmed recoveries- that’s unusual.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 139,275 confirmed cases, 2,664 confirmed deaths, but like California, the thuggish 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, Louisiana: 207,685 confirmed number of cases, 6,156  confirmed number of deaths, but no mention of confirmed number of recoveries- that’s Governor John Bel Edwards for you.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 325,537 confirmed cases, 2,736 confirmed deaths, and 313,643 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2020 Tuesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,783.35, DOWN 167.09 points (-0.56%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,899.34, DOWN 24.79 points (-0.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,609.53, DOWN 17.38 points (-0.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,880.40 per troy oz., -4.70 (-0.25%) while the price of SILVER is $24.56 per troy ounce, -0.091 (-0.37%).  The price of PLATINUM is $933.40 per troy oz, -3.70 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.20 per pound, +0.007 (+0.22%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,326.50 per troy oz., -18.60 (-0.79%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.22 per barrel, -0.21 (-0.51%).  Today, COCOA is $2,435.00 per metric ton, -0.82 (-3.26).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.56 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 and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Fairport Convention is a ‘blast from the past,’ “Heyday,’ a live album of sorts culled from the archives and released on April 17, 1987.  The album features a collection of tunes recorded a decade-and-a-half or so ago for the John Peel’s Top Gear Show.  The band consists of Ashley Hutchings (bass), Simon Nichol (guitars), Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals), Sandy Denny (vocals), Martin Lamble and Dave Mattacks (drums), Dave Swarbrick and Ric Grech (violins), and one or two others to round out the sound.  As you haven’t added enough music to your nonstop, never-ending growing collection, there’s always one more addition which is why we encourage everyone to visit their favorite haunt for the absolute best in music and pick it up- you will be so glad you did.

ENDNOTES:

[i] We look forward to doing the music of this legendary singer-songwriter.  Gordon Lightfoot will remain one of the all-time greatest songwriters of all time.

[ii] Please see: Shaw, John (and the Editors of Time-Life Books).  “Red Army Resurgent.”  1979.  Time-Life Books, Chicago, Illinois, p. 177.

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

[iv] Not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of this long-lived band but when we do, you will be among the first to know.

[v] We are somewhat surprised in 2020 that this wimpy POS did not pull an “Arlen Specter,” a Republican senator who flipped from the GOP to Democrat during the first term of President Barack Hussein Obama.  Pig. Sadly, Specter became an outcast like General Benedict Arnold, and no one had any respect for him.

[vi] See previous.
