  65. 2017 Saturday: A car plowed into a crowd of violent Antifa protesters who were counter-protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing Heather Heyer, 32, and hurting more than a dozen others.  The Ohio man accused in the attack, James Alex Fields, 21, would face a state murder charge and federal hate crimes charges, which are bullshit.  President Donald Trump condemned what he called “this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.” Democrats and some Republicans called on Trump to specifically denounce white supremacy.  Fake news ginned up the coverage to make the President appear a bigot, which is bullshit.  Meanwhile, during the protest, two Virginia state police officers died in a helicopter crash while monitoring the violent Antifa-caused protests below them.  Everyone blames white nationalism and President Trump, but the Democrats and fake news scum vilify those they deem culpable while giving a pass to the real criminals involved here, Antifa and Governor Terry McAuliffe who told the police officers to stand down so the Antifa thugs could beat on their opponents unmolested.

  68. 2020 Wednesday: Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris make their first appearance as a ticket in Wilmington, Delaware, today.  The former vice president was able to follow the teleprompter most of the way but there were a few times when he began to falter.  Perhaps he requires a shock collar around his neck so every time his eyes begin going fuzzy and his words fall by the wayside, Dr. Jill can give him a quick ZAP to pull him back on course.   Just saying.   Note: the Biden-Harris campaign raised $10.8 million within four hours of announcing that “Groping Joe” Biden had chosen the unpopular California senator to be his vice president.  Hmmm.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 317,210 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 86,868 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiv]    Let us look at one other location- North Dakota: $3.131.  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- Senegal: $5.250 per U.S. Gallon. [xv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,633,797,855,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xvi] Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,923,443.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,725,319,325.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,507,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,507,919. [xvii]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  Reports also say that during the month of July there were 212,000 border crossings, something unseen in 21 years.
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– On behalf of the people of Cuba, the U.S. Senate passed a bill before fleeing D.C. for the summer that will provide uncensored internet to the freedom-fighting peoples rebelling against the communist government.  (Note- why not provide them guns, senators?).  In other news from across the world, the Taliban has overrun Kandahar and the Pentagon now predicts the fall of Kabul in a month or less.  Can anyone remind us again as to WHY we remained in that spineless crap-hole of a nation and shed the lives and limbs of our troops as well as trillions of dollars?  Let the Chi-Coms have the place.  Worse, the Biden regime is sending 3,000 U.S. troops BACK into Afghanistan to help evacuate our embassy in Kabul.  This is crazy.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Always seeking to set the template for the country, California becomes the first state in the Union to require EVERY teacher and staff member at all schools to undergo vaccination for the Chi-Vi or to face weekly, invasive tests for the wily Chi-Com disease.  The Oxford University vaccinations group say that ‘herd immunity is impossible to achieve with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu variants.’  Sounds like yet another excuse to keep the American people locked down.  Good luck with that.  Next, as government continues trying to force the American people to undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis, we learn today that Pfizer’s vaccine is effective 43-percent while Moderna’s is effective 76-percent against the Delta variant.
  81. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of the vaccines, let us look at the stock prices of the BIG FOUR pharmaceutical companies.  Remember, since the advent of vaccines for the Chi-Vi there are forty new BIG PHARMA billionaires ALL from selling the vaccines to the U.S. government.  First, Pfizer’s stock is low, valued at $47.24 today.  Next, Johnson & Johnson’s stock price is $175.17.  After J & J comes BioNTech at $374.02 and last but not least, the market values Moderna’s stock at $391.42.  We will keep our eyes on BIG PHARMA stocks.  Meanwhile, because of the increase in Chi-Vi cases thanks to the surge of infected illegal aliens along the southern border, Facebook has ordered office workers NOT to return to the office until January 2022.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, DS-PA, launches his order today that stipulates ALL city employees and contractors (and visitors) MUST get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine or wear masks (and suffer treatment like second class citizens).
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s polling ratings continue their ominous, downward slide yet no mainstream media news anchor is discussing his crumbling lack of popularity.  (They want to keep the regime propped up).  Meanwhile, first mentioned yesterday, Joe Biden is begging- begging! – OPEC and Russia to increase production so he can find a way to lower surging gasoline prices in the United States.  All the befuddled old fool must do is to get the hell out of the way and allow American production of fossil fuel energy to soar.
  84. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– The CIA is weighing the establishment of a communist China division in a bid to ‘out-spy’ the Chi-Coms.  We are sorry but this something that the Central Intelligence Agency should have been created back in the 1990s.  We cannot believe this but if true, it shows how pathetic our government is at recognizing true threats around the world.  Like the eye of Sauron, BIG GOVERNMENT is searching for homegrown terrorists.  What a load of festering crap.
  85. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– As Democrats continue waging war on Mike Lindell’s cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota- both cyber and even physical as in the case of Mr. Lindell himself- President Donald J. Trump says that the Democrats ‘MUST NOT be allowed to get away with the murder of Ashli Babbitt.  President Trump also said that the Dems’ $35 trillion budget bill is a ‘communist plot to destroy the United States.’  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Democrats’ spending will erode Americans’ freedoms and drive-up inflation.’  Meanwhile, Twitter suspends Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account for- shock of shocks- another week.  Rep. Greene as you all know represents the 14th congressional district in the Peach State. 
  86. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says- get this- that he has ‘serious concerns’ about his fellow Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  (Note- we predict that he will vote for it anyway).  In other Democrat-related news, following the resignations or retirements of almost one-thousand Chicago police officers as well as the horrible murder of new mom and officer Ella French, Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot is requesting a sizable increase for the Windy City police officers.  Speaking of Democrats, soon-to-be-governor of the Empire State- Kathy Hochul- is doing everything she can to distance herself from outbound Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  Some say she may have had a hand in ALL the nursing home deaths of COVID-19 patients.
  87. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $7 million in the month of July.  Regarding the GOP, they managed to block the “For the People Act” from coming to a vote before everyone in Washington, D.C., flees the capital for August recess.  When they return, the Democrats will force it through to Joe Biden’s desk.  Speaking of the Democrats, House Blue Dogs begged Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, to hold a standalone vote on the ‘infrastructure bill’ but she said, “No dice.”  Meanwhile, a new poll says that a ‘majority of Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism.’  (Note- that is brainwashing for you.  We must reclaim our schools).    
  88. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– President Donald J. Trump endorsed former U.S. Navy Seal Derrick Van Orden to win the seat of retiring Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district.  Van Orden ran for the seat back in 2020 and lost it by 3-points.  We expect he will do much better with President Trump’s endorsement in 2022.  President Trump also says that the American people are turning off Fox News.  In other news, mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, running to replace Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, DS-NYC, said that CNN ‘must fire Governor Cuomo’s brother Chris.’  Amen.
  89. 2021 Thursday Q: Miscellaneous News I– A Georgia mother claims her kids’ elementary school district segregated them.  Thus, she is taking the fight to the Department of Education’s Civil Rights Division for resolution.  It is that flipping Criminal Race, uh, Critical Race Theory BS yet again.  Speaking of the DOE, Secretary Miguel Cardona backs forced vaccinations for ALL public schools’ staff members- NO exceptions.  Elsewhere, it appears that Jaime Spears, the leech-like father sucking daughter Britney dry, has relinquished his role as conservatorship.
  90. 2021 Thursday R: New York State News– New York State Rep. Colin Schmitt, R-NY 99th Assembly District, says that the ‘Cuomo impeachment probe must continue.’  Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, questions WHY Governor Cuomo is stick around for two weeks- is he destroying evidence? 
  91. 2021 Thursday S: Texas State News– The Lone Star State’s election security bill passed in the Texas State Senate.  Meanwhile, as various Democrat-controlled locales in the state attempt to stymie the NO MASK MANDATE order signed by Governor Greg Abbott, via the courts, he is taking the fight to the scoundrel Democrats.  Moreover, he is also telling mentally deficient Joe Biden to ‘let Texas produce our oil.’  Next- and this is a good one- the NAACP is urging the Department of Justice to launch a probe into the arrest warrants for the wayward Democrats still hiding out in Washington, D.C.  “Racist,” don’t you know to expect the elected politicians to do their frigging jobs.
  92. 2021 Thursday T: Weather News I– Democrats across the country are huddling in corners, wetting their undergarments because of sizzling summer weather in North America.  Many cities are declaring heat advisories.  Oh, heaven forbid.
  93. 2022 Friday: Yesterday, we witnessed one of the most nauseating spectacles ever: Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland laying out the groundwork for why he launched the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  What an embarrassment this man is to both the legal profession and the country.  I will say now that he will become the second U.S. AG to go to prison, in the footsteps of John N. Mitchell, the nation’s 67th U.S. attorney general.  I suspect there will be MORE members of the fraudulent Biden regime going to the federal slammer than there were members of the Nixon administration, starting at the very top and going down to various denizens of the Deep State.  I suspect the only one not going to the slammer will be poor Kamala, “California’s shame.”  That girl, my friends, is a blooming moron.   Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.[xviii]

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0920 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Solo.”  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 Beach Boys next studio album came out on June 05, 2012: “That’s Why God Made the Radio.”  It’s been quite a while since the last studio album which is why the aging Beach Boys spent a lot of time in making this album with a reconfigured lineup: Brian Wilson (vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Bruce Johnston (vocals), Alan Jardine (vocals), and David Marks (guitars and vocals).  To perform the instruments, a humongous number of supporting musicians- including many of the touring band members- participated in the recording of the album.  Most critics enjoyed it, some even comparing it to “Sunflower” while several sourpuss losers panned it.  Say what you will about a band that’s been around for half-a-century, nothing is ever as it was but this is close enough.  Besides, this album hit No. 3 on the U.S. charts which was their highest placement in, uh, 38 years, so what more can be said?  Seek it out now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

215. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 03, 2022

2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia. Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?

  57. 2020 Monday:  President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order today in which, he forbids American companies (Google comes to mind as does Microsoft and numerous other big tech firms) from hiring foreign scab workers to displace higher-paid American workers.  Far too often in today’s America, American firms force American workers to train foreign workers to do their jobs and then send them packing.  This is not right and what the president did today is amazing.  NO more displacing Americans with foreign scabs.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the stats are in for shootings in Chicago over the weekend: at least 33 people shot, 9 slain- including a 9-year-old boy and when compared to last July in Chicago, murders in the Windy City in July are up 139-percent.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at this point in time, there have been more shootings than ALL of last year’s combined.  What the hell is up with these BIG BLUE CITIES?  Where the hell are Black Lives Matter, you know, the Marxist, racist organization?  We thought black lives ‘matter?’  Apparently not.
  58. 2020 Monday A: President Donald J. Trump gave Chi-Com ‘video’ (spying) ap Tik-Tok until September 15 of this year to allow Microsoft to buy the intelligence gathering platform or to get out of the United States.  Boot them out ASAP!  Meanwhile, Illinois state Representative La Shawn ford, Democrat, calls to abolish teaching history in schools across the state as- according to him- it ‘leads to white privilege and a racist society.’  Will it ever stop?

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 312,055 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 92,023 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[x]

[xv]        
  67. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.384 per gallon, $3.007 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.862 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Maryland: $3.098.  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- Aruba: $4.852 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,599,366,342,829 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xviii]  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 Kuwait, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Sweden with $47 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.
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 133 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the flaming fiasco down along the U.S.-Mexico border and her 39th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says that Joe Biden “MUST fire” “Kooky Kamala” because she has no clue as to what the f**k she is doing.  Elsewhere, Grant Stinchfield reported on Newsmax this evening that the mayor of McAllen, Texas, Javier Villalobos, has declared a disaster as they are being overrun by thousands of illegal aliens with no end in sight.
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Germany has set a trial date for a 100-year-old Nazi death camp guard.   Next, the Chi-Coms are lashing out angrily at the Republican Party following the release of their report on the origins and spread of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Oh, boohoo, Chi-Coms, shut the hell up.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their attack on the GOP, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th CD, says the Chi-Coms’ wailing and sniveling over the recent report is further proof of their duplicity in the crime of the century- unleashing the Chi-Vi on the world.  Rep. McCaul said it is ‘the worst cover-up in human history.’  No wonder the Beijing bullies are upset.  Speaking of the communists, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, has once again called for moving the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics out of the authoritarian country and somewhere else to a more deserving country.   Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says that the United States ‘must cut off communist China completely.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Saudi foreign ministry has suggested that it won’t take part in the Abraham Accords.  Well, screw them.  Next, South Korea reports that the North Koreans want sanctions eased for them to return to direct talks with the United States.  Moving on, the Lebanese president is calling for an investigation into the Beirut blast that leveled much of the city a year ago tomorrow.  At least 204 people lost their lives while another 6,500 suffering injuries of varying degrees.  Tens of thousands more were made homeless in the space of a second.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke with the Afghan president to see about ‘hastening along the peace negotiations with the Taliban.’  Mr. Secretary, the Taliban is overrunning the country, sir, how about helping them with air support?
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The United States is donating another 110 million doses of the Chi-Com Virus vaccine abroad.  Hopefully, it’s the Johnson & Johnson crap.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Florida’s schools have quickly rescinded their mask mandates for the upcoming school year after ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis threatened their funding.  NO MASKS for kids!  In fact, Governor Pete Ricketts, R-NE, says that ‘mask mandates and lockdowns are counterproductive.’     
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Elsewhere, scientific journal writer Peter Hotez says that ‘questioning Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci should be labeled a “HATE CRIME.”  Interesting note: Professor Hotez has received funding from Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.’  Man, the fruit does not fall far from the pestilent stink-tree.
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former President Barack Hussein Obama ripped into the ‘Republican fog’ surrounding voting rights in this country.  President Donald J. Trump was highlighting a new forensic report that shows that Joe Biden received more than 8 million fraudulent votes in last year’s presidential election.
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden News I– Enfeebled Joe Biden believes that putting pressure on U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer to retire would harm the nation’s highest court and would politicize it.  Of course, the Democratic-Socialists reacted to this statement in the same way that Dracula would to a Crucifix and a vial of Holy Water. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new report regarding the Biden regime says that federal agencies do extraordinarily little to protect the data of U.S. citizens from being hacked by foreign adversaries. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– The Democrats are at war with one another and the division within their hardcore-left-of-center party continues to grow.  Democrats are screeching and wailing over the end of the evictions moratorium which leads the rest of us to ask a scathing question of the liberal losers: YOU were giving people an extra 300 smackers on top of their unemployment so where the f**k did it go?  They weren’t paying their rent with the extra $1,200 per month.  This is crazy, landlords have bills, too, as do the people they hire to do the electrical work, the plumbing work, the reclamation work should the tenants to whom they have given housing trashed it.  Many people invest in rental properties to pay the bills and now, the Democrats are destroying that segment of the American economy along with numerous others.  Shame on them.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News II– Republican National Committee Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that for Donald J. Trump to win in 2024, Republicans must win in 2022.  Next, many people now believe that the reason as to WHY New York AG Leticia James came out and trashed her boss, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov by listing his crimes as disgraced FBI Director James “Criminal” Comey did Hillary Rodham Clinton back in 2016 is that she wants to cripple him so she can run for his job and possibly win in 2022.  Now, that’s devious.  Still, the Albany County D.A. is now investigating Governor Cuomo so maybe someone else is going to do the dirty work for A.G. James.
  78. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney says that the Department of Justice ordering the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to the cretins in the U.S. Congress is occurring sans any evidence of wrongdoing.   Next, that crackpot scarecrow loser in the U.S. Senate- Elizabeth Warren, DS-MA,- says that ‘GOP voting laws are somehow connected to abortion.’  Say the flip what?  This woman is an angry loser.  Elsewhere, Governor J.B. Pritzker, DS-IL, says he is going to ‘enforce background checks on private gun sales.’  You should have been doing that already.  Moving on, the U.S. Senate voted to award ‘gold medals’ to the Capitol Hill cops who were at the Capitol on January 06, 2021.  What a load of crap.
  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News IV– Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax lambasted the 18 Republicans who eagerly signed onto the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Again, here they are: Roy Blunt, R-MO; Richard Burr, R-NC; Shelley Moore Capito, R-WV; Bill Cassidy, R-LA; Mike Crapo; R-ID, James Risch, R-ID; Thom Tillis; R-NC; Todd Young, R-IN; Mike Rounds, R-SD; John Hoeven, R-ND, Kevin Cramer, R-ND; Lisa Murkowski, R-AK; Rob Portman, R-OH; Mitt Romney, R-UT; Susan Collins, R-ME; Chuck Grassley, R-IA; Lindsey Graham, R-SC; and “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY.  Here is some more of the crap contained within the ‘infrastructure bill’- $16.3 billion for ‘renewable energy’ program; $250 million for invasive plant elimination (how about for invasive human beings’ elimination, i.e., ILLEGAL ALIENS?), and $10 million per year for Motor Vehicle per-mile user fee program.  So now, the American people will be taxed per mile by local, state, and federal government?  There will be a new industry just as there is now with the manufacturing of vaccination ID cards, one in which, odometers will be reset and reset. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News V– Tucker Carlson reported tonight from Budapest, Hungary, that the New York Times- the so-called ‘paper of record’- received millions of dollars from communist China to shill for the thugs in Beijing.  Islands that belong to Japan, they claimed belonged to the Chi-Coms as well as did everything to trash anyone who said that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was ‘xenophobic,’ a ‘racist,’ and/or a ‘bigot.’  Mr. Carlson said that the New York Times was not the only ‘news outlet’ to take Chi-Com yuan and then lie their asses off about anything their Beijing masters ordered them to do.  Wow.  Hence, ‘Chi-Coms good, Wuhan lab ‘innocent,’ and Donald J. Trump a ‘big, fat, evil racist.’  What a load of crap.
  81. 2021 Tuesday S: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee finally is seeking to repeal the 2002 use of military force in Iraq powers they gave to President George W. Bush.  Interested observers ask what took you so long to do this?  You should never have bestowed those powers on President Bush.  The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes, however, that the Deep State forced Bush’s hand into invading Iraq so everyone could rake in lots of bucks while then using the exact same war powers act to trash Bush #43.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: Business News– In various parts of the United States, McDonalds Restaurants will require both employees and customers to mask up or to go across the street to Burger King.   Restaurants in New York City are going to require that ALL customers- with the blessings of outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio- to show proof of vaccination, i.e., show their papers, otherwise, they cannot enter, sit down, and eat.  It would appear that the government is going to have private businesses do their dirty work just as they require employers to deduct payroll taxes from their workers’ salaries and then hand them over to government apparatchiks.  Well, there will always be restaurants that welcome all diners so it is important that we share names and locations in the same ways that hoboes of old shared whose house would provide one a meal and which house would not.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Special Election News– Tonight in the GOP primary race in Ohio’s 15th CD in a race to fill the vacant seat of former Rep. Steve Stivers, Donald J. Trump-backed candidate Mike Carey won big time.  Meanwhile, on the Democratic side of the aisle, state Rep. Allison Russo was projected to win the Democratic nomination.  The general election will be this November.  And they say Trump-backed candidates can’t win.  You win some, you lose some and Barack Hussein Obama has lost almost every endorsement he ever made- “Loser” with a capital “L.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– New York Attorney General Leticia James released the results of the probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and none of it looked good.  She would not commit to prosecuting the immoral chief executive and left it for others to do.  New York state Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat, said today “NO one is above the law.”  Later in the day, Joe Biden called for the Empire State governor to ‘step down’ for his reprobate activities as did House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.   Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st CD, called for the ‘immediate arrest’ of the immoral governor on grounds of criminal sexual harassment.  Good.  Lock him up.
  85. 2021 Tuesday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– However, Joe Biden is so out of it that he did not realize that as he was calling on his fellow Democratic-Socialist to step down, he opened the door for others to demand Mr. Biden step down due to his LONG HISTORY of groping, grabbing, smooching, rubbing, and saying all sorts of suggestive and disturbing things.  What is clear, too, is that AG James lacks the balls to pursue her boss, Governor “Killer” Cuomo.   Elsewhere, Missouri Governor Mike Parson has officially pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey for their ‘gun crimes convictions’ of last year.  Excellent.
  86. 2021 Tuesday X: Mass Shootings News– Two employees were wounded in a warehouse shooting in Tennessee.  Cops responding on scene shot the shooter.  Elsewhere, after some shots were fired outside the Pentagon, the entire facility went on lockdown.  It seems the bravest of the brave had to cower in fear inside the walls of America’s defense epicenter.   Apparently, a law enforcement officer may have lost his life in the incident.  Jihad?  White Supremacism?  Black Lives Matter?  Angry lover?  We don’t know.
  87. 2021 Tuesday Y: Big Tech News– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, slams YouTube for its censorship of free speech and urges users to find alternative sites to share their views.
  88. 2021 Tuesday Z: California State News– Backers of Recall Governor Gavin Newsom are seeking to block language on the upcoming recall ballot that the effort to cleanse California of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is a ‘power grab by the GOP.  Governor Newsom, people from across the political spectrum are banding together to get YOU out of office just as they did with Governor Gray Davis, another corrupt Democrat governor.
  89. 2021 Tuesday AA: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1682 what with a $179 million jackpot on the line: 01, 09, 17, 27, 34, and Mega 24.  Out of 73,454 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,091,799.  The winning ticket was sold at the Cortesia Market in Pacoima, CA 91331.
  90. 2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.  Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia.  Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?  Anything is indeed possible in this world and some such as my family and me see signs of the End Times on the horizon.  One cannot make this stuff up.  No, all one need do is to read the Holy Bible.  Still, after all the suffering, the death, and the destruction, we will win.  That is the promise of GOD.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilte” De Soto.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys released their next live album, “Songs from Here and Back,” a special release album that came out on May 15, 2006, one that came out from Hallmark for two months back in the day.  This is rather a hodgepodge of tunes, most of the live ones from 1989- two from back in 1974- as well as three solo studio tunes, one from Brian Wilson, one from Mike Love, and one from Alan Jardine.  You get the lineup back in 1989- Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, and Alan Jardine- plus the longtime Beach Boys backup band, the one that provides the background on the road.  The two from 1974 feature Dennis Wilson and Ricky Fataar in the mix while the solo studio recordings feature a variety of accompanying musicians.  IF you can find this one, it’s a worthy addition to one’s collection and if you can’t, well, it is what it is.  Enjoy.
