  56. 2012 Friday: The first commercial spacecraft, Space X Dragon, docks with the International Space Station when it completes docking at 12:02 pm EDT.  Meanwhile, French President Francois Hollande arrives in Afghanistan on a surprise visit to meet with French troops battling the jihadists in that horrible country.  Elsewhere, Scottish independence becomes the topic of the day when First Minister for Scotland Alex Salmond launches the “YES” campaign to encourage his fellow Scots that the time has come to sever ties with the Brits.

  59. 2015 Monday: According to Brainy History, Ehud Olmert, former prime minister of Israel, is sentenced to eight months in prison after new evidence emerges proving corruption charges for which he had been acquitted three years ago.  Israeli politics seem to be pretty tough over there what with trying to send its leaders to jail.  WTF?
  60. 2016 Wednesday: Southern Europe is in the throes of crisis as the tidal wave of ‘migrants’ continues trying to make it to Italy and other points in the Mediterranean Sea.  Off the coast of Libya, an overloaded boat full of ‘refugees’ capsizes leading to at least five drownings.  The Italian navy scoops out another 562 swimmers and takes them to shore.  (Note- it’s becoming time to start sowing mines off the coast of Libya).
  61. 2017 Thursday: Surrounded by stone-faced allies, President Donald Trump rebuked fellow NATO members for being the tightwads they have been for decades.  He criticized them for failing to meet the military alliance’s financial benchmarks.   Elsewhere, voters in Montana go to the polls today in the special election to replace Congressman Ryan Zinke who has gone to work in the Trump administration.  The choice is between Republican Greg Gianforte and Democrat Rob Quist.
  62. 2018 Friday: Sexual deviate Harvey Weinstein underwent charging in New York for rape and another sex felony in the first prosecution to result from the wave of allegations against him; the once-powerful movie mogul turned himself in to face the charges and was released on $1 million bail after a court appearance.  Elsewhere, following yesterday’s cancelation of the upcoming summit between the U.S. and North Korea in Singapore, President Donald J.

  63. 2019 Saturday: A powerful twister roars through the town of El Reno, Oklahoma, killing at least two and injuring numerous others.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump goes around Congress to make sure a multi-billion-dollar sale of arms to Saudi Arabia occurs.  Democrats are angry at this because they want to deny the Saudis the weapons with which to defend themselves from the Iranians because they are still pissed off over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.
  64. 2020 Memorial Day Monday: Failed New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, releases a 51-page edict outlining how the state will reopen in the event COVID-19- communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ which is sad.  The (former) Empire State will never be the same what with a constant stream of middle-and-upper-middle class citizens leaving for elsewhere.  Here are the statistics for the Wuhan Virus for today, first the globe: 5,490,954 confirmed cases, 345,962 confirmed deaths, but 2,228,952 confirmed recoveries which is amazing and a good sign.
  65. 2020 Memorial Day Monday A: Here are the statistics for the United States: 1,696,874 confirmed cases, 99,459 confirmed deaths, but 352,612 confirmed recoveries which would resemble the percentage of the globe IF the various Blue State governors would be honest and present the numbers of recoveries, but they won’t.  They seek to keep things locked down which in our view is criminal: it demonstrates the COLLUSION between the Democratic Party and their communist Chinese taskmasters in Beijing and here in our country.  We must thwart them. 
  66. 2020 Memorial Day Monday B: In the three states in which the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 94,558 confirmed cases, 3,785 confirmed deaths, BUT NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which demonstrates the scumbag Gov. Gavin Newsom KNOWS that if he shared them, NO one would obey his stay-at-home orders.  In Hawaii, here are the figures: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 591 confirmed recoveries for which, we must thank Gov. David Ige for his honesty.  Finally, in Washington state where whacked-out Governor Jay Inslee holds power (people, vote this baboon out!), here are the stats: 20,065 confirmed cases, 1,070 confirmed deaths, and sadly, like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  You know, Washington was once a wonderful state but now- in the grip of Democrats- languishes in the throes of Democratic-Socialism!  Free California!  Free Washington!  Free Tibet!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free and independent Taiwan (until they liberate the mainland)!  Free from Democratic-Socialism and Communism!
  67. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet As A Whole: 168,514,195 confirmed cases, +3,377, 3,499,505  confirmed deaths, +267 and 150,112,274 confirmed recoveries, +80,205.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,947,189 confirmed cases, UP 32,100 from yesterday’s reporting, 605,208 confirmed deaths, UP 904,[ix] and 27,606,442 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,997.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[x]   
  68. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, There Have Been 288,596 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 171,013 deaths  
  69. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,780,101 confirmed cases, 62,984 confirmed deaths, and 2,021,886 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,313,815 confirmed cases, 36,581 confirmed deaths, and 1,929,132 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,924 confirmed cases, 496 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 432,993 confirmed cases, 5,780 confirmed deaths, and 211,014 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Jersey: they have 1,014,579 confirmed cases, 26,125 confirmed deaths, and 873,637 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  70. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,389 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,523 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Uzbekistan, a former part of the old Soviet Union: 98,849 cases of the virus, 94,385 confirmed deaths and 96,666 confirmed recoveries.[xii]     
  71. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,312.46, DOWN 81.52 points (-0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,657.17, DOWN 4.00 points (-0.029%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.13, DOWN 8.92 points (-0.21%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.99 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.12%).  The price of GOLD is $1,899.90 per troy oz., +1.90 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $28.12 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,196.20 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, 0.00 (+0.09%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,770.60 per troy oz, +42.37 (+1.55%).[xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $27,250.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-1.80%).[xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.41 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Belarusian Ruble, one greenback equals 2.51 and in Belize Dollars, a buck equals 2.00 and in Bermudian Dollar, one dollar equals 1.00 of theirs.[xvi]   In other business news, Washington, D.C., has launched an antitrust lawsuit against Amazon over their purported mistreatment of vendors.  Wow.   Meanwhile, rents have gone up by 1.9-percent, the highest rate in 10 years, while rents for single-family homes have gone up 4.3-percent from last year.  (Note- we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe the Chi-Coms will be buying up commercial and residential real estate using straw buyers so they can become the de facto landlords of the average American.  This is not right, and immediate action must be taken to drive these bat-eating scumbags out of everyday American life).  
  72. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.165 per gallon, $2.869 in Florida, $3.909 in Hawaii, and $3.562 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Virgin Islands: $3.239.  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- Liberia: $2.911 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,328,605,823,085 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.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– One year after the death of George Floyd, the American people reflect on his ‘life and times.’  Here is what the majority of the chef-bloggers at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe: George Floyd was a thug[xx] and had he not continued scuffling with the police but had complied with their commands, he would be alive today.  Maybe he would be doing time in the county jail, but he would be alive today.  When stopped by the cops and you are as high as hell and tried to pass a counterfeit $20 bill, do what the hell the cops instruct you to do, and you will most likely survive the interaction.  Period.   We are sorry that Mr. Floyd behaved like a dimwit but man, oh man, did his family (and the Democratic Party) profit from his demise.  Tragic.  Meanwhile, drooling Joe Biden hosted Mr. Floyd’s family at the White House demanding that lawmakers pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act 2021- H.R. 1280- NOW.  Such is Democrats pandering to identity politics.
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day #64 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be doing something about the southern border calamity and yet, she has yet to visit, and nothing is being done.  The floodgates are open, the vermin are swarming out of Third World sewers and overwhelming the United States.  (Note- we always suggest watching the ORIGINAL- and not the PC sanitized- version of “Red Dawn,” (1984).  About midway through the movie, you will see how the United States fell under assault by the Russians and Cubans- advance waves of millions of illegal aliens flooded into the country followed by troops from the two communist countries.  It is eye-opening.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– President Donald J. Trump congratulated himself on the roll out of the Chi-Vi vaccine.  Meanwhile, the Moderna Bat Flu vaccine has been approved for use by teenagers and could become available to teenaged Americans by early next month.   Elsewhere, after photos appeared showing Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer enjoying the good life at the Landshark Bar and Grill in East Lansing, Michigan came to light- the horrible chief executive of a once-lovely state is facing growing blowback.  People in her state are chafing under a soul-crushing lockdown while the rectangular-headed bozo governor can go out and have a celebration in public much like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in California did a few months back at the famed French Laundry.  Remove this authoritarian skank from office NOW.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump slammed the pink panties-wearing Joe Scarborough of ‘Morning Joe’ infamy today for being a political hack.  Next, Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office George P. Bush talks to President Trump about political options for the Lone Star State- he is thinking of running against current Attorney General Ken Paxton.  Speaking of Texas, the state’s legislature has passed the “Star-Spangled Banner” Bill; it awaits the signature of Republican Governor Greg Abbott.  Elsewhere, Congressman Brad Wenstrup, R-OH 2nd congressional district, told Newsmax that Joe Biden’s reluctance to confront the Chi-Coms is ‘unfair to all mankind.’  (Note- we have said this before- the Chi-Coms are the National Socialists of the 21st century as they have (1) territorial ambitions (2) are more fascists now than communists and (3) have concentration and slave labor/death camps for ethnic and religious minorities as well as other undesirables (in their eyes).   They are an ‘Asian version’ of the Nazis.  How soon before they add swastikas to their flags?).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News II– The FBI is investigating a suspicious package that some liberal lunatic sent to Senator Rand Paul, R-KY.  Next, the Senate GOP appears ready to employ the filibuster against the bogus January 06, 2021 ‘Commission’ in which, the Democrats will try- once again- to impeach President Donald J. Trump and to sully other Republicans if they can over the FALSE FLAG OPERATION that occurred on that fateful day.   We believe the American people are becoming much more aware that what we saw on January 06, 2021, was a well-orchestrated theatrical production designed to do exactly what it accomplished: force the reluctant Republicans into not questioning all the fraudulent and corrupt activities on and around Election Day and 2020 and to certify the election.[xxi]
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News III– Zack Smith, legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, said today that ‘D.C. statehood requires a constitutional amendment to become reality.’  We concur- the District of Columbia was NEVER meant to be a state and anyone who claims otherwise must go back and retake civics as well as to open their eyes.  If the denizens of the nation’s capital want ‘full rights,’ the land on which everything sits- other than actual government buildings- should be returned to the states that offered up portions of their territories in the first place.  Problem solved.   Meanwhile, the Senate GOP is offering up a compromise on Joe Biden’s ‘infrastructure package’ of nearly $1 trillion but only for actual infrastructure.   Elsewhere, ex-White House counsel under President Donald J.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys continued struggling along what with Brian Wilson- principal songwriter, falsetto vocalist, and guiding light now being in a mental state of malaise.  Thus, the other Beach Boys had to step up and tackle a larger portion of the songwriting.  Still, Brian Wilson’s name shows up on many of the tracks as well as his vocals, but the album suffered poor sales.  This is not to say that the album is not a joy because it is, albeit an extremely short one.  Some say it’s the band’s first ‘TM’ or their ‘transcendental meditation album’ as it has a spiritual, upbeat flow.  The lineup on “Friends” (June 24, 1968) features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  There are some wonderful songs on this album to be sure: the title track, “Wake the World,” “Be Here in the Morning,” “When a Man Needs a Woman,” “Passing By,” and “Busy Doing Nothing.”  We hope you will seek this one out as it is a delightful record, one we wholeheartedly love, enjoy, and recommend.  Back in the 1970s, one could find it packaged with “Smiley Smile” in a two-for-one.  Now, you can get an expanded edition so check it out.

[i] We hope to present the music of the Nice as well as Emerson, Lake & Palmer at some point within the next five years.  Please remain posted for the day that we do.

[ii] We promoted the music of Blossom Toes beginning on Monday, 01-June-2015 through Sunday, 07-June-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog, so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of the Outlaws when we begin promoting the music of country artists.  Please remain alert for the day we do as you will enjoy them.

[v] 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.  Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too.  Perhaps one day we will.

[vi] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of the legendary British band, the Pretty Things, but when we do, you will love them so remain vigilant for the day we do.

[vii] We promoted the music of the James Gang beginning on Saturday, 11-August-2012 through Monday, 27-August-2012.  We did not do the solo discography of Joe Walsh at the time but when we arrive at the Eagles, we most certainly will.

[viii] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

70. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022

2021 Thursday A: The hits continue coming for flailing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo. You know you’re a scumbag when a reprobate such as New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says, ‘Cuomo can no longer serve.’ He joins the massive chorus demanding the mortally wounded Empire State governor to step down and go home in shame.

  63. 2018 Sunday: The government of Communist China- the National Peoples’ Congress- declares an end to term limits thus making dictator Xi Jinping ‘president for life.’  He is the new Mao Zedong.  This will put the dictator on a path to defy the West and terrorize the world.  In two years, a pandemic from one of his biowarfare labs will be terrorizing the world.
  64. 2019 Monday: Israeli President Reuven Rivlin- a thorn in the side to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refutes the PM’s claim that “Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people- and only it.”   Meanwhile, the Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, age 82, changes his mind on seeking a fifth term and postpones the upcoming elections after citizens of his country go berserk in the streets.   Elsewhere, the blackout in Venezuela continues into yet another day.  The Maduro regime continues blaming the U.S. and Juan Guiado instead of acknowledging the blame rests entirely upon the regime’s ineptitude and its criminality.   Democratic-Socialists in the United States would love for the United States to resemble that once-prosperous and now-collapsing South American country.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Fallout from the spread of the COVID-19 aka Coronavirus around the globe causes the NBA to suspend the rest of the season including the playoffs and all sorts of entertainment and sporting events to shutter their doors.  President Donald J. Trump goes before the American people and gives a stately Oval Office address in which, he reassures the citizens of the country that the government at all levels is doing everything possible to protect them.  He suspends all flights from Continental Europe for 30 days as the United States continues finding ways to minimize our exposure.  Many believe it is time the Chinese stand up and admit what everyone knows them to have done and that is- following the U.S.-China trade deal- the release of the coronavirus around the world.  Sadly, Tom Hanks and his wife admit that while filming a movie on Elvis Presley in Australia- in Australia!- the pair caught the coronavirus.  Wow.  Finally, when many thought that Bernie Sanders was going to throw in the towel on his campaign, he goes before the mics and proclaims he is going to fight all the way to Milwaukee.  Double wow.
  66. 2021 Thursday: Day 51 of the Biden Regime, how much more can the United States take of this senile president and his unseen handlers?  We expect they are in league with the Chi-Coms and as such are actively selling out the country. Tonight, is the night, folks: “Chi-Com Joe” Biden is going to deliver a 20-minute address to the American people.  The ‘president’ is going to level with us, tell us what we must continue doing if we are going to lick this virus.  We are curious if he will be able to deliver a 20-minute address.  We don’t believe he can so here’s what we think: we believe if we watch closely, the speech is going to feature various takes spliced together to give the IMPRESSION he is delivering an address.  It’s also possible it could be a DEEP FAKE.  We will be watching this ‘address’ closely to see just how fake it is.  We know Democrats will be wetting their underwear in anticipation of “Pro-China Joe.”   Anyhow, Joe is going to promote ‘vigilance’ and ‘hope.’  What a guy!
  67. 2021 Thursday A: The hits continue coming for flailing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.[v]  You know you’re a scumbag when a reprobate such as New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says, ‘Cuomo can no longer serve.’  He joins the massive chorus demanding the mortally wounded Empire State governor to step down and go home in shame.  It appears citizens of the state are more upset with Cuomo groping women than they are the 20,000 or so deaths HIS policies caused in nursing homes what with seeding COVID-19 patients among the elderly and disabled.  Still, ‘how sweet it is,’ said Jackie Gleason’s character on “The Honeymooners.”  Vamanos, Governor Cuomo!   Speaking of Bill Di Blasio, Andrew Yang is leading the polls in the mayoral race.  Billy Di Blasio may be joining Governor “Killer Cuomo” in exile. 
  68. 2021 Thursday B: The Senate is having a challenging time moving along the nomination of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to become the next head of Health and Human Services.  The only medical experience AG Becerra has is that he never saw an abortion he did not like nor an excuse to deliver taxpayer dollars to the Pro-Death Movement, aka Planned Parenthood.  Speaking of Planned Parenthood, the international ‘baby chop shop,’ (don’t take the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, folks), a judge ruled that Texas can remove Margaret Sanger’s organization from its list of Medicaid providers.  Excellent.  UPDATE- despite opposition, the Senate voted to move the nomination to the floor late this afternoon.  S**t!
  69. 2021 Thursday C: The House Democrats have passed two sweeping gun control measures, bills that require extended background checks and longer waiting periods before one can purchase a firearm, ammunition, and accessories.  Neither of these bills do anything to halt criminals and thugs from obtaining firearms but as far as legal owners go, the Democrats want to take our guns.  As we have said here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM on multiple occasions, we are recommending the stashing of firearms or their transfer to family members and theirs back to you so when the cops come pounding on the door with a leering moron like Beto O’Rourke outside demanding you hand them over, you can tell them, “MY GUNS WERE STOLEN.  I WAS JUST GETTING READY TO REPORT IT.”  Imagine if millions of gun owners do this; it’s the same concept of EVERYONE across the country reopening their businesses at the same time on the same day.  If everyone supports everyone else, government cannot crush us, nor can they take away our business licenses.   It is time for the American people to remind government at all levels who exactly is in charge…it ain’t them!
  70. 2021 Thursday D: Meanwhile, California Senator Dianne Feinstein and Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline, 1st congressional district, introduced a bill today that will allow government to strip away ownership of AR-15 rifles and similar weapons.  Gun-grabbing Democrats never rest which is why the National Rifle Association and various state pistol and rifle associations never rest either.   We urge everyone to obtain a lifetime membership with the NRA, a lifetime membership with the California Rifle and Pistol Association,  the same with the Hawaii Rifle Association, likewise with the Washington State Rifle and Pistol Association, and the same in every other state in the union.  We must defend our God-given rights of gun ownership. 
  71. 2021 Thursday E: As California Governor Gavin “Silver Spoon” Newsom continues floundering like his opposite in New York, things are suddenly beginning to reopen including state attractions such as Alcatraz Island and its penitentiary.  Flailing governors will do anything to save their souls.  Sadly, for Governor Newsom, the effort to recall him has 1.8 verified signatures, well over the 1.5 million to get him on a recall ballot.  We hope to boot this sissified POS out of office as quickly as possible. 
  72. 2021 Thursday F: The federal government reports 712,000 new claims for jobless benefits which is lower than anticipated.  However, 4.5 million of our fellow Americans are still drawing benefits.  In other business news, Rolls Royce- no longer a manufacturer of fine automobiles but of aircraft engines- announces a loss in 2020 of $5.6 billion.   Meanwhile, Parler has been denied yet again a return to the Apple store of apps.  What is up with that? 
  73. 2021 Thursday G: The ‘Biden EPA’ is going to reconsider Trump era rules on lead in drinking water.  In other ‘Biden administration’ news, reports are that there are 3,200 illegal alien minors and brats stuffed into the same kinds of animal pens as they were during the Obama-Biden administration, the very same hellholes of rape, murder, and torture they tried to pass off onto Donald J. Trump.  We think it’s more humane to load them aboard trains, buses, semi-trucks, even sidelined aircraft and send them back to ONE point and ONE point ONLY: to Honduras.  Seeing as how this is where the caravans commence forming, we should send them back and dump them out.  At the same time, we must continue securing the borders, laying in minefields, antipersonnel and antivehicle obstacles and pits, foo gas pits, and everything else we can to stop the tidal wave of humanity that will never assimilate.  Of course, if the ‘Biden administration’ wants to give us $5,000 per month to take in an illegal alien brat and to pay for their keep, many Americans will be glad to do that, especially members of NAMBLA.  It is what it is…[vi]
  74. 2021 Thursday H: In the joke of the day, shock jock newsman Geraldo Rivera says he is considering a run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Ohio Senator Rob Portman next year.  Wow.  Go for it ‘Mustache!’  Next, Britney Spears’ dad’s team blasts Congressmen Matt Gaetz, R-FL, and Jim Jordan, R-OH, blasting them on their crazy conservatorship of the popular pop icon.  They pointed out yesterday that conservatorships such as the one Britney’s dad has her detained under is wrong and must be stopped.  It’s unfair to those who are capable of running their own lives.  We tend to agree.  Let Britney go!   In other interesting news, the governor of Mississippi, Tate Reeves, signs a bill into law today that defends girls’ and women’s sports from Trannys.  We believe there should be a THIRD league of scholastic and collegiate sports (and perhaps even at the Olympics level) of tranny sports.  Let the Trannys play sports with one another, let boys and men compete against one another and the same for girls and women.  Enough is enough, stop coddling people with mental issues.  Help them instead. 
  75. 2021 Thursday I: Texas Governor Greg Abbot is sending 500 Texas National Guardsmen to the southern border to help defend it from the tidal wave of illegal aliens a feeble Joe Biden invited to come here.  Again, we say, “Defend the border using whatever tools and weapons of war necessary.”  No other nation would ever permit outrageous behavior such as this to continue unimpeded.  In other distressing news, the head of the Indo-Pacific command of the U.S. military laments the fact that the Chi-Coms are cleaning our clocks in the size of our militaries.  We have problems, folks, the Chi-Coms NEVER fight foreign wars while the U.S.- except under President Donald J. Trump- fights wars all over the place and is again.  This is among the quickest ways to reduce the effectiveness of our military.  Just ask the Roman Empire.
  76. 2021 Thursday J: President Donald J. Trump says former NFL great Hershel Walker would make a great U.S. senator from Georgia.  Watch out, Reverend Raphael Warnock (how can a man of the cloth serve both God and Karl Marx at the same time?).  We think Walker would make a GREAT senator!  Meanwhile, retired NFL player Jack Brewer tells Newsmax that ‘the City of San Francisco spends roughly $61,000 per year on each tent on public property within the fecal-rich city by the bay.’  This is frigging crazy!  You could buy every homeless person a tiny house and pay their utilities. 
  77. 2021 Thursday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 118,119,333 confirmed cases, +354,714, 2,621,944, confirmed deaths, +8,197, and 66,926,960 confirmed recoveries, +189,463.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,465,761 confirmed cases, up 62,965 from yesterday’s reporting, 534,746 confirmed deaths, UP 1,627, and 115,014,297 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 206,269 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  78. 2021 Thursday L: 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: 3,611,884 confirmed cases, 54,961 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,892 confirmed cases, 448 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 349,900 confirmed cases, 5,159 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- South Dakota, aka the Mt. Rushmore State: currently, they have 114,163 confirmed cases, 1,905 confirmed deaths, BUT NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 812,823 confirmed cases, 5,955 confirmed deaths, and 768,713 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Ukraine, the place where Vladimir Putin is waging a war of re-conquest: 1,425,522 cases of the old Wuhan Meat Market Malady, 27,685 confirmed deaths, and 1,210,246 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, how about their numbers: 90,002 confirmed cases (our sources in Hong Kong say multiply everything by 75,000-percent and add the numbers for a total of 67,729,348 confirmed cases, 3,598,303 confirmed deaths, and 65,738,140 confirmed recoveries- and remember- these are still low-end numbers.  
  79. 2021 Thursday M: Norway and Denmark have stopped inoculating their citizens with the AstraZeneca vaccine seeing as how 22 cases of blood clots turned up in their citizens.  They are launching a two-week investigation of what the heck is up.  Meanwhile, a young mother in Utah dies four days following the second injection of the Bat Virus vaccine.  Medical authorities are investigating that death.  Across the country and around the world, stories of mysterious illnesses and deaths related to the vaccines are popping up, here and there.  We are in a wait and see mode, not having any desire to rush out and get vaccinated for this crap disease.  We believe the gulf between DYING OF THE ‘VID or WITH THE ‘VID is wide.  If government wasn’t using the Chi-Com Virus as a club with which to beat us, we might actually know the truth but until honest leaders step up and share the truth with us, we will remain suspicious of the whole charade.   In other China Virus-related news, 8-in-10 American parents want schools reopened for in-person classes- so says a recent poll by Gallup.   The AP reports that Joe Biden is ‘in the wrong place on vaccinations.’  Likewise, an AP-NORC poll says that ‘1-in-5 Americans lost someone to the Chi-Com bat flu. 
  80. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden signed the $1.9 trillion ‘COVID-19 Relief Bill’, aka the PORKULUS into law.  As soon as he did, he scurried out of view of reporters.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,485.59, UP 188.57 points (+0.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,398.67, UP 329.841 points (+2.52%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,939.34, UP 40.53 points (+1.04%).  The price of GOLD is $1,720.10 per troy oz., -2.50 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $26.17 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.11%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,200.00 per troy oz, -2.30 (-0.19%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, 0.00 (+0.04%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,341.60 per troy oz, +48.40 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.97 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.08%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.59.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Algerian Dinar, one greenback equals 132.71.  NOTE- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.783 per gallon, $3.534 in Hawaii, and $3.219 in Washington state.  That’s Old Joe destroying our oil and petroleum industries.  Scumbag.  Meanwhile, with Old Joe signing the bill, we have committed more than $5 trillion in ‘relief’ funds in ONE year.  Sounds like Cloward and Piven strategy is going to destroy the United States.   Time to move to Russia. 
  81. 2021 Thursday O: Vice President Kamala Harris administered the oath of office to new U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland.   This guy is a loser.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Attorney General Monty Wilkinson stepped down on this date.  (Wilkinson served from January 20, 2021, until today).  Elsewhere, sources say that Sackler has boosted its opioid settlement up to $4.3 billion.   Next, Trump adviser Jason Miller say ‘woe to anyone in the RNC who goes against Trump-endorsed candidates.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Congressman Madison Cawthorn, R-NC 11th congressional district, says a ‘weaponized Department of Justice and FBI could block all firearm sales.’  Time for patriots to answer the clarion call.   Elsewhere, Politico reports that within the $1.9 trillion ‘COVID-19 Relief Bill,’ there’s a $60 billion tax hike for all U.S. citizens.  Finally, for the U.S. to rejoin the Paris Climate Accord, we must slash emissions by 57-percent.  Hell, it might be time to move to Chi-Com China.  They don’t worry about this crap.
  82. 2021 Thursday P: CNN and MSNBC’s ratings are in the crapper.  Fox still ranks high with Newsmax and One America News not far behind.  This, of course, is among Republican viewers but still, Fox is thrashing about trying to discover some way by which it can reclaim millions of lost viewers but folks, other than Tucker Carlson and Mark Levin, many people say, “F**k them.”  They made their own bed, let them lie in it.   In other news, Mexico is legalizing recreational marijuana.  Good for them…
  83. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band released its second ‘best of’ compilation, “Anthology,” on March 21, 1978.  The group had split due to inner turmoil related to being together for far too long, having had massive success and then a subsequent decline all within the span of about five years.  Thus, the record company said, ‘it’s time to release another compilation,’ this one a double-header, so we can bring in some additional revenue so here we are.  Still, you have a glorious introduction to one of the most prolific groups of all time- yes, we said it, because the music and the attitude of this band influenced everyone from Eric Clapton to Dave Mason to loads of other similar-sounding groups- which is why if you have yet to get in on the ground floor, well, this is the perfect way in which you can do it.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended albums.  You can thank us later.

TODAY IN HISTORY, FRIDAY MARCH 11, 2022, BLOG POST #4,482

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

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

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

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We promoted the music of New York City’s very own Vanilla Fudge, beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  You definitely will want to check them out so please, do so now.  At the time, we overlooked the music of Cactus which we hope to promote one of these days.  Remain vigilant for the day when we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both Emerson, Lake & Palmer along with the Nice at some point soon.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.  Thank you.

[v] Here’s a fascinating aside that no one is discussing: all of Cuomo’s accusers are WHITE.  Does this say something about Cuomo also being a RACIST besides being a GROPER?  It’s not like women of color are nonexistent in New York or in New York government so why is no one lambasting Cuomo for not groping women of color like say, Leticia James?  We wonder how that would have gone…

[vi] Just joking about NAMBLA so stop wetting your drawers.   However, we don’t see how it’s HUMANE to have women and children marching to our borders where they are being raped, beaten, mistreated, and most likely scarred for life.  This is NOT humane and it’s clear to everyone Democrats possess ZERO humanity as if they did, they would stop this outrageous activity along our border.  President Trump, come back, please!

ELECTION DAY IS COMING AND IT’S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

70. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 11, 2021

35. 1954 Thursday A: In northern Vietnam at the French base at Dien Bien Phu, incoming transport planes are beginning to experience 37 mm anti-aircraft fire. French pre-registered heavy artillery begin firing back while patrols go through the wire and out into the surrounding fields and forests seeking their foes. Yet, these are still the ‘quiet times,’ the French Union forces- a mix of French paratroopers, Foreign Legionnaires, Moroccan and Algerian colonial troops, Thai and Vietnamese troops, and West African Senegalese artillery men- believe they have the upper hand. Every night, the People’s Army continues building approach trenches to various remote outposts surrounding the main base and every day, the French troops fill them in.

Say what you will about the eclectic Ferry, the man is an amazing, unique talent, one who is always a pleasure to listen to, which is why we urge everyone reading today’s post to seek it out NOW. Please, visit Amazon.com where you can pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you.

[i] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011. We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We promoted the music of New York City’s very own Vanilla Fudge, beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013. You definitely will want to check them out so please, do so now. At the time, we overlooked the music of Cactus which we hope to promote one of these days. Remain vigilant for the day when we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day. We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[iv] We hope to promote the music of both Emerson, Lake & Palmer along with the Nice at some point soon. We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do. Thank you.
