Chris Murphy, D-CT.  Enough is enough!

  66. 2020 Wednesday E: Meanwhile, a U.S. Senate committee chaired by Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, finds both former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his son, the erstwhile Hunter, culpable of wrongdoing in the Ukraine.  This alone should drive the senile elder Biden from the race and send his son to prison for engaging in corruption, self-enrichment, and possible crimes.  Finally, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom announces that by 2035, NO MORE GAS-FUELED cars and trucks will be sold.  He claims this will improve the environment of the state.  Question, Governor Newsom: where will the power for these vehicles originate?  Wind and solar farms?  You are trying to lay off massive taxes on renewable energy sources in November so WTF is wrong with you?

  79. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As all hell continues breaking loose down on the southern border, today is Day No. 182 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the mess and Day No. 89 since her singular visit to the border.  What the Biden regime did do, however, was to strip away the Border Patrol’s main asset- their horses.  After video appeared of Border Patrol agents trying to corral the Haitian Invasion going on down there while on horseback, the left immediately began screeching about RACISM and SLAVERY and everything else they love crowing about. Next, here are the numbers as presented by OAN, first the cost of caring for this riffraff for just this day: $508,967,648.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the invaders for the year 2021: $290,920,005,632.  Third, here is the number of illegals who crossed the border this year: 2,981,697.  Finally, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals living in the country now: 2,981,696. (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).
  80. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As the border crisis continues going from bad to worse, the highly esteemed Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell said today that the ‘border crisis is a textbook example of failed leadership.’  In other Biden border catastrophe news, U.S. Special Envoy Daniel Foote- the man in charge of Haiti- threw in the towel and resigned over his boss, Joe Biden’s failed handling of the HAITIAN INVASION.  Speaking of the ongoing disaster that could be easily fixed if only the Biden regime was not committed to carrying out the REPLACEMENT THEORY- replacing American voters with the dregs of the Third World- Rep. Ralph Norman, R-SC 5th congressional district, said today that the Biden regime is ‘tone deaf’ on the border.
  81. 2021 Thursday H: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.19 (2) AstraZeneca $59.48 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.86 (4) BioNTech $352.99 (5) Moderna $454.60.

  85. : Political News I– In a national embarrassment, so-called ‘climate czar’ John F. Kerry says he is more worried about the Chi-Coms ‘doing their part’ fighting climate change than he is about their innumerable human rights abuses.  In other Democratic Party news, the Dems are going berserk as the bill they plan on pushing tomorrow to counter the Texas ban on abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, Senator Susan Collins, R-ME, says she won’t support their bill.  The Dems are going into a tailspin, the Pro-Death losers.
  86. 2021 Thursday M: Political News II– In other pathetic Democratic Party news, after the White House said that it was looking for a private contractor to provide care for members of the HAITIAN INVASION in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the White House had to then rush out and say, “Oh, no, we aren’t going to send our beloved Haitian illegals to Gitmo.’  Wow.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse for the Biden regime, the Wall Street Journal says that troubling questions regarding Hunter Biden’s art sales continue to increase.  Oh, say it ain’t so!  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, said of Hunter Biden and the regime that ‘hypocrisy is rich when it comes to the first son.’  Next- and this is a shock to us as much as it is to country star Lee Greenwood, Joe Biden is going to remove the beloved entertainer from the Arts Council all because he performed for President Donald J. Trump.  WOW.  How flipping petty!  Finally, the feds are going to pay a Florida school district $150,000 because it refuses to follow “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis order banning mask mandates in the state’s public schools.  Wow to that, too.
  87. 2021 Thursday N: Sports News I– In tonight’s Thursday Night Football Game, the Carolina Panthers easily defeated the Houston Texans by a final score of 24-9.
  88. 2022 Friday: Observation of the Day On Tuesday, our nation hit a record never before seen in the history of the nation: 2 million illegal alien encounters on the U.S.-Mexico border and those are just the ones we’ve apprehended.  This is unsustainable, something we cannot permit and I am going to offer a solution.  Remember when the Saudis were offering high-priced boat tours along the coastline of Somalia?  About a decade or more ago, Somali pirates were wreaking havoc on commercial shipping and the navies of the world attempted to stop it.  However, maintaining naval and air assets in the area was costly and so they fell off as time progressed.  The Saudis would take their passengers aboard yachts and provide them with all manner of automatic weapons, ammo, and whatever else was required to kill pirates and then would like in wait, awaiting the inevitable speedboats full of crazed, drug-addled pirates parting the waves towards them.  Once within firing range, the passengers would light the f**king scum up, riddling the pirates with high-powered bullets and sending their boats to the bottom of the sea.  While some people called it ‘evil,’ others called it ‘necessary’ and over the last 5, 6, maybe even 7 years, we have heard little to nothing about ‘Somali pirates.’  Folks, let’s do something similar along the border.  At some point- and everyone understands this– we are going to have to begin shooting the invaders.  The longer we postpone the inevitable, the more it’s going to cost the American taxpayers.  I say, we begin running tours for people seeking to improve their shooting skills and to do what the f**king government will NOT do and that is to DEFEND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.  Hell, we might even allow the wealthiest customers to use vintage World War II tanks, imagine the revenues that would provide our cash-strapped government.  Let me know your opinion.  Thanks- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On April 12, 1988, Cheap Trick returned to fore with their next album- “Lap of Luxury”- their most successful since “Dream Police” of nearly a decade before.  Besides featuring Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitars, and synthesizers), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), Tom Petersson (bass and backing vocals), had returned home.  The Epic label was determined that Cheap Trick was going to have a ‘number one hit’ seeing as how they had not had a bona fide hit in eons, the label demanded they bring in outside songwriters which must have been somewhat insulting to Rick Nielsen, the principal songwriter.  Still, they had a NUMBER ONE HIT- their ONLY number one- in “The Flame.”  Considered a controversial number in the history of the band because feelings towards it were mixed, it is a FABULOUS TUNE and we love it.  It resurrected the group and most fans are onboard with it.  Add to that the cover of Elvis Presley’s “Don’t Be Cruel” and the delightful “Ghost Town” and one can see why we give this album the ringing endorsement that we do.  Seek it out and add it to your ever-growing collection of the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful on Saturday, 14-September-2013 and concluded the presentation on Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  Please check them out and add them to your growing CD collection- they are one of the greats.

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

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Alice Cooper one day so please keep posted until we do.  We think you will appreciate them, especially the original band.

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

[v] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years.  Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.

[vi] Barack Obama most likely was born in Kenya as many sources claim and therefore an illegal president.,

[vii] We won’t be doing the music of Shawn Mendes.  We only do serious musicians.

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

  55. 2017 Thursday: According to On This Day, scientists at Cal-Tech publish an article in the journal, “Current Biology,” of the first brainless animal, the jellyfish Cassiopeia, that actually ‘sleeps.’  Most scientists believe that only animals gifted with brains sleep, as it is a normal function for creatures with thought processes.
  56. 2018 Friday: Trembling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford offers to testify before the U.S. Senate on the allegations of rape and sexual abuse she launched against President Donald J. Trump’s second U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  It would later turn out that she was a liar as were other women- most notably those turned up (or out) by thug attorney, Michael Avenatti.  It was all a scheme to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation and drive him from the nomination.  It didn’t work.
  57. 2019 Saturday: In Indonesia’s Jambi Province, skies go bright red as the worst illegal forest fires since 2015 blaze away, destroying more than 800,000 acres and causing respiratory distress for more than a million citizens.  They need Smokey the Bear. 
  58. 2020 Monday: Tropical Storm Beta is expected to attain hurricane status when it arrives on the Texas gulf coast at some point late today/early tomorrow.  Meanwhile, outside Los Angeles, the Bobcat Fire doubles in size thanks to warm winds breathing new life into it.  Next, on the other side of the country, New York City Transit officials say yesterday’s derailment of a subway train occurred due to vandalism.  No one was hurt but it’s clear that Antifa/Black Lives Matter is extending its reach when it comes to terrorism. 
  59. 2020 Monday A: Moving on, the Biden-Harris (or is it Harris-Biden) 2020 campaign announces it has $466 million in its coffers, having pulled in more than $100 million in the previous 48 hours by milking the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whereas the Trump-Pence campaign as $325 million on hand.  Speaking of President Trump and Justice Ginsburg, the commander-in-chief announces he will nominate his replacement pick for Justice Ginsburg on Thursday or Friday of this week.  All the while, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi promises to impeach President Trump- again!- should he fulfill his constitutional duty to nominate someone to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.   Meanwhile, well-known genius Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC says that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, moves forward with hearings on the nominee, that he ‘is playing with fire.’  Yikes.
  60. 2020 Monday B: Speaking of angry Democrats, the Dems say they are going to (1) end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate on EVERYTHING meaning every vote will be decided by the nuclear option, 50-percent plus one.  (2) They will give statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columba.  Why not give statehood to the U.S. Virgin Islands, to Guam, to Northern Marianas Islands, and to American Samoa.  (3) They plan to stack the Supreme Court with an additional five to seven justices.  (4) They plan to topple the Electoral College.  (5) They plan to increase taxes by $3 TRILLION as well as to reimpose the Obamacare mandate, all the rules and regulations overturned and removed by the Trump administration, and jump back in to the JCPOA, the Paris Climate Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  (6) They are going to grant the franchise to prisoners serving time, to felons, and to 15-and-16-year-olds.  What more can we say?  We must crush this illegitimate, Chi-Com colluding political party.  It is us or them.
  61. 2020 Monday C: Famed NBA star and noted ‘genius’ LeBron “Full of Fecal Matter” James of the Los Angeles Lakers chides Lori Loughlin, actress, and her husband who must go to prison for having bribed the university of their daughter’s choice to get her in, for allowing Loughlin to choose the facility.  LeBron says ‘it ain’t right.’  Elsewhere, a survey finds that unless Chinese Virus relief issues are soon met, 60-percent of all restaurants will close their doors forever.  Imagine all the real estate the Chi-Coms will be buying via shadow companies, straw buyers, and of course, their Democratic Party hacks.
  62. 2020 Monday D: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr labels three cities in the United States as anarchist jurisdictions- New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, for permitting and enabling out-of-control riots, mob violence, looting, rape, robbery, arson, and murder.  The AG said: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest.  We cannot waste federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance.”  The federal government seeks to strip these cities who have crippled their law enforcement via defunding or reduction so as to force them back into line.  New York City currently receives about $7 billion annually from U.S. taxpayers.  This must stop. Strip Portland and Seattle of their funding, too, until they regain their senses, or the voters replace them.   
  63. 2020 Monday D: A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled today that mail-in election ballots can be counted for up to SIX DAYS post-Election Day so long as they are postmarked on Election Day.  Bret Baier on FNC believes this will go to the Supreme Court to be overturned or put into law.  Meanwhile, President Trump is on the trail in the Midwest, stopping in Ohio and traveling elsewhere while “Pro-China Joe” Biden visited Wisconsin, there to try to re-energize his flagging base.  Question is, WHO is the real string-puller behind former VP Biden?  We suspect it’s none other than Xi Jinping and that Rep. James Clyburn is the conduit through which the alleged cash flow goes.  Think about it: Biden was at the bottom of the Democrats’ heap until Clyburn vouched for him, impeachment failed, the U.S.-Sino Trade Deal signed and then the Chi-Com Flu arrived on scene.  We don’t believe in coincidences nor should YOU.
  64. 2020 Monday E: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Folks, here are the numbers for the Wuhan Waltz, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic the Chi-Coms created but blame on the U.S..  Here we go: 31,120,980 confirmed cases, +261,911, 961,656, confirmed deaths, +3,342, and 21,287,328 confirmed recoveries, +188,233.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,932,317 confirmed cases, UP 68,463 from yesterday’s reporting, 202,982 confirmed deaths, UP 573, and 3,723,573 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,066.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 378,443 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 25,635 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  73. 2021 Tuesday D: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.390 per gallon, $3.093 in Florida, $4.065 in Hawaii, and $3.867 in Washington state.[xxi]    Let us look at one other Kansas: $2.918.  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- Sweden: $7.346 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,788,463,892,116 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  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 India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 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.
  74. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– A report says that another 6,000 Haitians are tramping north through Mexico to Bidenville under the Del Rio, Texas, overpass.  This sounds like a job for napalm.  Just saying.  Anyhow, violence is breaking out in towns in their path as the Haitians fight one another to get on any available transportation north.  Here are the numbers from One America News for today.  First, here is the cost for caring for the invaders for just this day: $533,574,040.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for Joe Biden’s new citizens: $288,752,762,880.  Here are the numbers of illegals who have swarmed across the U.S.-Mexico border for 2021: 2,959,484.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, mind you, of the illegals lurking in the country as you read this: 36,959,484.  We believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Speaking of this disaster, today is Day No. 180 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 87 since she visited the border.  Where can we get a ‘no-show job’ like the one this loser has?  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says of Joe Biden that he ‘doesn’t even pretend on the border’ meaning he does not tell us everything is good and well when every American sees it for him-or-herself on live TV.  As the border continues its implosion, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today and said of his border policies that they are ‘ridiculous.’  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, calls the lack of a sound policy, “Insane.”
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Russian President Vladimir Putin won’t be coming to New York City to attend the U.N. General Assembly.  No, he will get his message across via diplomatic channels.  Speaking of Russia, we learned today that the Federal Bureau of Investigation delayed helping the victims of the recent Russian hacking attacks.  The question is, “WHY?”  Next Portugal has granted the Afghan girls’ soccer team asylum as their home country continues to implode under Islamism.  Meanwhile, up in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- son of one of the Rolling Stones- manages to cling to power at the head of a minute minority drastically weakened by his ignorant policies.  To get things done, the communist PM will have to engage with other political parties.  This should be fun.
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.92 (2) AstraZeneca $59.13 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.53 (4) BioNTech $341.35 (5) Moderna $434.04.  Even as the FDA says there is NO need for Chi-Vi booster shots, Johnson & Johnson now claims that their new booster shot is ’94-percent effective.’  How can they claim this when their original shot was down in the mid-forties?  There has not been enough time for them even to know so we encourage everyone to avoid the Johnson & Johnson shots as if their lives depended upon it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.11 (2) General Dynamics: $191.19 (3) Boeing: $208.51 (4) Lockheed Martin: $336.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $345.14.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

206. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JULY 25, 2022

2022 Monday: As the Voice of Occupied Los Angeles, California, a place overrun with illegal aliens, gangbangers, corrupt politicians, and liberal losers, let me ask a pertinent question: could Joe Biden’s feebleness be the result of long-term syphilis? Everyone knows that back in the day, not only did Senator Teddy Kennedy- aka, the “Lion of the Senate”- but so did good buddies, Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Joe Biden. Leave it to some losers like Dr. Jill to push her mentally disabled husband into a position of power that he cannot hope to ever have a grip on. Dr. Jill should be in prison and her husband in the loony bin for old gropers and hair-sniffers.

[xix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,565,021,806,001 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.

  83. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 124 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border crisis and Day No. 30 since her one and only visit to the border.  One America News compiles a running tally of the crisis down there, a tally we gladly share with our readers who don’t watch the network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $721,816,512.  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for all the noncitizens in the country: $225,379,401,728.  Third, here is the number of illegals estimated to have crossed the country just this year: 2,309,958.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the number of illegals currently residing in the country: 36,309,960.  We say this every day that when the AICPENDBLOG.COM began tapping out blogposts back in the spring of 2009, we estimated the numbers then at between 35-50 million illegals and everyone jeered at our estimates.  Thus, we did the digging and now, we believe the numbers to be closer to 75-100 million, an unsustainable number if ever one existed.  It is what it is, we guess.
  84. 2022 Monday: As the Voice of Occupied Los Angeles, California, a place overrun with illegal aliens, gangbangers, corrupt politicians, and liberal losers, let me ask a pertinent question: could Joe Biden’s feebleness be the result of long-term syphilis?  Everyone knows that back in the day, not only did Senator Teddy Kennedy- aka, the “Lion of the Senate”- but so did good buddies, Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Joe Biden.  Leave it to some losers like Dr. Jill to push her mentally disabled husband into a position of power that he cannot hope to ever have a grip on.  Dr. Jill should be in prison and her husband in the loony bin for old gropers and hair-sniffers. 

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0902 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Bird Rock.”  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 solo album by Beach Boys’ legend Brian Wilson- “Live at the Roxy”- came out on June 19, 2001, and features the famed composer, singer, and musician covering not only Beach Boys’ classics but also tunes from his solo works as well as covers of other admired musicians.  The American release contains 31 tunes while the UK releases features 35, all of which are phenomenal.  Wilson is accompanied by a stellar cast of musicians and the overall album is extremely enjoyable.  We hope you will seek this one out by visiting the artist’s website or by going to the time-honored vendors of fine music such as Amazon.com, Discogs, AllMusic, and/or eBay.  Seek him and his work out and enjoy- you will be glad you did.  (Note- we at the AICPENDBLOG.COM occasionally get our dates mixed up, this we have two albums that appear earlier than several of the previous offerings- it is what it is, please oblige us.  Thank you).

[i] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of Bob Dylan but one day, we sure heck we do.  Stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds, but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

[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 “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] The so-called “Lion of the Senate,” Teddy Kennedy, a Democrat, was little more than a sexual deviate and a murderer.

[vii] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

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

[ix] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time however, we overlooked presenting the music of the group’s individual members- Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Welch, Lindsay Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.  We hope to do that at some point in the near future.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.
