  53. 2017 Friday: President Donald J. Trump acknowledged for the first time that he was under federal investigation as part of the expanding though phony probe into Russian election meddling as he lashed out at the top Deep State operative in the Justice Department overseeing the fraudulent probe.   Meanwhile, he tightens up on the open relations with communist Cuba that his predecessor Barack Hussein Obama had loosened while he was in office.  Finally, Amazon.com announces its plan to buy Whole Foods for $13.7 billion, becoming an ever-greater monopolistic octopus.  How come Democrats don’t want to hammer them with a huge antitrust suit?
  54. 2018 Saturday: Communist China announced 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion in U.S. imports, including soybeans and beef, in response to President Donald Trump’s tariff hike on a similar amount of Chinese goods.  The Chinese also scrapped agreements to narrow the trade surplus with the United States.  Elsewhere, after a frantic search for a missing woman in Indonesia, horrified villagers find her body consumed by a massive python.  This is but the second documented case of a humongous python engulfing a full-grown human being.

  57. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump signs an executive order to begin the reformation of the nation’s police agencies.  Democrats screech ‘IT’S NOT ENOUGH’ and that ‘TRUMP IS A RACIST.’  Ah, well, we know the Dems will never accept anything President Trump does.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 298,182 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 161,467 deaths

  63. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.227 per gallon, $2.962 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.625 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Minnesota: $2.858.  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- Lesotho: $3.766 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,413,747,338,681 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after 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 position).[xxii]
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, today is Day #85 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border calamity and not to have shown up for a single day’s work on the job.  Still, President Donald J. Trump will be visiting the Texas-Mexico border with Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, on June 30.  Many are speculating as to whether the laughing jackass border czar will rush down to the border for a quick photo op or won’t show up thereby proving our point, she is little more than a low IQ, empty pantsuit, the former ‘mattress’ of California Democratic Party bigwig, Willie Brown.  Ah, well, speaking of Governor Abbott, the patriotic Texas governor said that President Donald J. Trump set a ‘high mark’ for control of the southern border.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News shared the latest stats today concerning the border cataclysm: (1) Cost this day of caring for millions of illegal aliens: $585,083,840.  (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $182,502,932,480.  (3) Total numbers of illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 1,870,509.  (4) Estimated total number of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 35,870,508.  Note, we have said since 2009 at the blog’s inception that the total numbers were 35-50 million; now, we believe we have 75-100 million river-swimming, fence-climbing, and/or desert-crossing illegals in the U.S.  IF we deported ALL the illegals gobbling away at the benefits of being an American, rents and mortgages would precipitously drop, wages would go up, our students would become better-educated and would move through the educational system at a faster pace, Social Security and Medicare would be strengthened, and there would be far fewer Americans drawing unemployment and welfare checks.  There would also be less crime, fewer drunken driving fatalities, less rapes- especially of minors, fewer break-ins, less shop-lifting, you name it, our country would be in such better shape, it’s difficult to comprehend until you start comprehending it.  Yet, they want them here which to us verifies the veracity of the Replacement Theory.  Still, we say, BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  Update- “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is sending law enforcement officers to Texas and Arizona to help defend the southern border.  God bless him!
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fred Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, made the witty observation that the ‘Europeans LOVE decrepit old Joe Biden’ because ‘America is back.’  America is back meaning the U.S. will be footing the bill while the Europeans are allowed to renege on their obligations.  Speaking of Joe Biden overseas, the summit between he and Russian President Vladimir Putin failed to go the distance today.  Instead of going the full five hours promised by the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ it went about half that.  President Putin held a press conference first and ripped the U.S. leader a new one in subtle and witty ways while Joe then came out, held his, and we must say, the Aduhelm must have been working well today because we would give his press conference a C+ grade.  (Note- we don’t expect to see the feeble old perv for about a week now as he tries to recover from this challenging trip).   The two leaders apparently agreed to a return to the arms control treaty negotiations (all the while the Chi-Coms[xxiii] continue building a massive arsenal) as well as to the exchange of diplomats once again.  Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said it was ‘way too early for Joe Biden to be meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, says that the ‘new system for checking his citizens’ status for the Chi-Vi vaccine are NOT a vaccine passport.  (Good- because we are not going to get this crap anyway- see you in November, governor).  Next, a new report says that at a pop-up vaccination site in New York City, medical personnel carried out 899 ‘jabs’ using defective vaccines.  Say what?  Yet another reason to avoid this crap.  Elsewhere, the U.S. government has spent more taxpayer monies buying 14 million Johnson & Johnson vaccines for overseas export.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is ‘yet to get a response from either the National Institute of Health (NIH) or from Health and Human Services on his questions about the China Virus.  Senator- you won’t get a peep from either the NIH or HHS.  Next, brave scientists are calling for investigations into various ‘scientific journals’ that dismissed the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab leak theory.’  Excellent.  ‘Follow the science,’ folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris apparently trying to force a far-left agenda into the American economic system.  Not good, folks, not good.  Next- and this is the best one of the day- senile old Joe Biden is encouraging Americans to report radicalized family members, friends, and neighbors to the authorities so the RACE POLICE can swoop in and spirit them away in the dead of night to one of their black site secret prisons.  This smacks of the Gestapo’s Nacht und Nebel policy by which political dissidents disappeared during the dark of night.  Wow.   Meanwhile, the Biden regime releases its first list of top diplomatic nominees for overseas deployment.  Wonder where Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel will go?  Japan doesn’t want the POS.  Finally, Joe Biden is reversing yet another Trump Era policy by providing increased protections to tranny students, i.e., mostly ‘chicks with dicks’ students, what we used to call ‘exotics.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News– When reporters asked fumbling Joe Biden if he STILL THOUGHT that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a ‘killer,’ the usurper in the White House did his best “Kooky Kamala” Harris imitation and broke out in maniacal laughter before forgetting the question.  Friends, this is embarrassing to have a mentally-incapacitated dimwit in the White House.  This is, indeed, the SHAME of our country.  Speaking of our national embarrassment, Joe Biden claims to have given President Putin the ‘what for’ during their short meeting.  Question: when everyone returns to the United States, will the U.S. Congress demand that Joe’s interpreters appear before congressional committees and tell the lawmakers what was really said and how poorly Joe’s performance was?[xxiv]  Remember, after President Donald J. Trump met with his Russian counterpart, Democrats were demanding the interpreters testify to exactly what was said during the two leaders’ private meeting.  (Note- we don’t expect this will ever happen).
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger feeling intense heat down his backside is now going to investigate the missing ballots transfer documents and chain of custody.  From what we hear, there were more illegal ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, than anywhere else in the state and it’s clear that if an HONEST and IMPARTIAL audit is conducted, we will learn the truth.  We await more information…
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– New reports suggest that law enforcement recruitment is way, way down, while retirements are skyrocketing.  We imagine many law enforcement officers could find employment in Arizona and Texas, especially if those two states are going to continue fortifying their frontiers and creating their own statewide border patrols.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– New York City finds itself being consumed by a self-made problem: in midtown Manhattan, tens of thousands of ‘urban outdoorsmen’ have set up tent cities.  Wow.  Next, the House GOP seeks a review of BIG TECH’S close ties to the Chi-Coms.   In other news, Texas Democrats are launching a last-ditch effort to stop the Constitutional Carry Bill becoming the law of the Lone Star State.  Screw the little wimps. Elsewhere, Chicago Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot is seeking to halt alcohol sales after midnight.  Uh, what will this accomplish?  People will buy their liquor at 11:59 P.M.   Finally, Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Madeleine Dean, 4th congressional district, is NOT going to seek the seat of outgoing RINO Senator Pat Toomey.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, proposes changes to Dem-backed voting bill newly renamed from the “For the People Act” to the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” which means it’s still the same old shit, repackaged, and returned to the shelf.  NO one buy this stinking piece of crap bill.  Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, working on behalf of the family of Ashli Babbitt says information on her shooting death at the U.S. Capitol Building during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, is difficult to come by.  He is seeking answer as to whom the Capitol Hill police officer who shot her dead is and the circumstances as to WHY he shot her, an unarmed woman, attempting to climb through a broken window.  Moving on, GOP House and Senate members return to Washington, D.C., to hold their weekly conference.  Republicans- how about this: how about demanding answers as to WTF the Capitol Hill protesters are still locked up, mostly in solitary confinement?  IF you don’t defend these people, one day, the government will come for you.[xxv]
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Noted UFO filmmaker Jeremy Corbell says that when the UFO report comes out later this month, it will reveal uncomfortable truths for the American people.  Mr. Corbell told Rob Schmitt on Newsmax that the New York Times has said that the report will leave out the possibility of the technology being seen is a secret U.S. military program much less a Chi-Com or Russian program.  That will leave us with but one simple truth: it’s from somewhere else, NOT of this Earth.  Look, if it were Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, or North Korean, do you think they would not already be ruling the planet?  Of course it’s from somewhere else and that means there is little to nothing we can do about it except await its arrival.  Elsewhere, SpaceX supposedly ignored an FAA warning regarding the launch of its Starship SN8 launch in December 2020.  We are sure Elon Musk had good reasons to blow off the FAA.
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Amazon.com has introduced its new surveillance system to grocery stores.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3569 with a $55 million jackpot on the line as well as the Powerball Draw #855 with a $40 million pot on the line.  Stay tuned for tonight’s results…okay, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 01, 06, 21, 38, 39, and Mega 10.  Out of 147,354 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $16,603 apiece.  The tickets were sold at (1) Shell in Visalia, CA 93277; (2) Sunrise Market and Gas, San Diego, CA, 92102; and (3) Ronnie’s Market and Deli, Stockton, CA 95204.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 19, 29, 34, 44, 50, and Powerball 25.  In California, out of 40,139 winning tickets, the highest winners were 21 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $555 apiece.
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Sports News– NBA star, point guard, Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns is in COVID-19 protocols at the moment.  Not sure as to when he will be able to return.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Observation of the Day– Friends, there is BUT ONE WAY to STOP the tidal wave of illegal aliens pouring across the southern border and that is, the GOP must make a tactical decision with which to aid the overall strategy in combatting Joe Biden’s crimes.  We must make the tactical effort to reach out to the illegal aliens who are here, to make it appear that we are going to bring them into OUR FOLD.  We must make the Democrats believe we are recruiting illegals to become future GOP voters like the Democrats recruit children for immoral purposes.  We must enlist, recruit, and dragoon illegal aliens into becoming solid GOP members as once the Democrats realize they are losing on this battlefront, the trains, planes, buses, automobiles, and even empty freighters will be running 24/7/365 to get illegal aliens out of the country.  Once they begin shipping them out, we can throw the ones who helped us aboard those outbound modes of travel in the same way once the Indian Wars were over, General George Crook threw the Indian scouts onto the trains carrying the beaten Native Americans to the reservations.  It is a matter of saving the country so let’s make some tactical decisions NOW so our strategy can become reality at a future date.
  79. 2022 Thursday: Stick around and discover the events of the day along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Mike Love was the next Beach Boy to release a solo album, “Looking Back with Love” on October 08, 1981.  While Mike has sung some of the most well-known Beach Boys tunes, his songwriting talents were not always as good as the Wilson Brothers or Alan Jardine or Bruce Johnston, thus he gets panned by the critics.  Mike also was not as forward-looking as was say, Carl, in that he favored performing the ‘golden oldies’ while Carl and Dennis pushed the band to move forward into the future.  Still, fans of Mike Love ‘love’ the album which is why we have it here for your enjoyment.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  64. 2021 Monday 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: 3,797,335 confirmed cases, 63,048 confirmed deaths, and 2,061,112 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,329,867 confirmed cases, 36,973 confirmed deaths, and 1,970,341 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,649 confirmed cases, 505 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 443,210 confirmed cases, 5,909 confirmed deaths, and 218,426 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Alabama, the home of former Senator Jeff Sessions: they have 546,324 confirmed cases, 11,217 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  65. 2021 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,585 confirmed cases, 6,418 confirmed deaths, and 832,981 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country-  Singapore, 107th country on the list: 65,210 cases of the virus, 33 confirmed deaths and 61,660 confirmed recoveries.[ix]     
  66. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,630.24, DOWN 126.15 points (-0.36%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,881.72, UP 67.23 points (+0.49%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,226.52, DOWN 3.37 points (-0.08%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.71 per barrel, -0.50 (-0.72%).  The price of GOLD is $1,905.40 per troy oz., +6.30 (+0.33%) while the price of SILVER is $28.07 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.07%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,177.30 per troy oz, +2.50 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, -0.02 (-0.34%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,842.36 per troy oz, +8.65 (+0.31%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $22,500.00 per troy oz., -800.00 (-3.43%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (-0.00%). [xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.     In Guatemalan Quetzal, one greenback equals 7.71 and in Guinean Franc, a buck equals 9,757.00 and in Guyana Dollar, one dollar equals 207.28 of theirs.[xiii]        
  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.221 per gallon, $2.852 in Florida, $3.945 in Hawaii, and $3.603 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.301.  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- Dominica: $3.476 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,379,2427,836,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  After Japan, the Chi-Coms, Brazil, and the United Kingdom, Ireland holds about $300 billion of U.S. debt.[xvii]
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  Today is Day #77 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the laughing hyena, to be on the job and we supposedly have a sighting: she is going to discuss border issues with the Guatemalan government in Guatemala[xviii].  Wow.  Next, One America News shared the latest statistics on the ILLEGAL TSUNAMI overwhelming the United States this morning.  First, the cost to U.S. taxpayers this day alone: $539,091,968.  Second, here is the total cost to American taxpayers for the year 2021 in caring for the illegal alien tidal wave: $172,593,922,048.  Imagine what this money could do to help the American people?  We could end the mushrooming tent cities across the country.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the southern border in 2021 alone: 1,768,949.  Finally, here is the estimate by OAN of the total number of illegals in the country as we speak: 35,768,948.  (Note- the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day has long prophesied that the numbers as far back as 2009 when this blog began was between 35-50 million.  In 2021, we believe the numbers are closer to 60-80 million.  All of these people must be scooped up and deported out of the country with microchips embedded in their bodies so we can track them from here on out).  Elsewhere, the Bidenistas now are saying that people being granted U.S. citizenship will NO longer have to pass an FBI background check.  Say what? 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Voters are going to the polls in Peru today.  For president, they have TWO populist candidates from which to choose: (1) Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of a former Peruvian president and businessman Pedro Castillo.   Meanwhile, in Japan, popularity polls for aged Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga are at 37-percent.  And he just met Joe Biden!  Whoa.  Speaking of Japan, Japanese citizens are evenly split as to whether the 2020, uh, 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will proceed or undergo cancelation out of health fears.   Next, Israeli officials prohibit a ‘far-right group’ (what are they, Nazis?) of Jews from conducting a march through Jerusalem’s Old City.   Elsewhere, President Volodymyr Zelensky blasts Joe Biden for his ineptitude of lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline carrying natural gas from the former Soviet Union to former Nazi Germany.   Finally, while the Biden regime bumbles about, jihadist Iran is close to a break-out in months- if not weeks- of achieving nuclear weapons. 
  70. 2021 Monday H: (New Category) War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– Boko Haram’s leader, the thug Abubakar Shekau severely wounded himself when his thugs clashed with rival, ISIS-affiliated scumbags.  He tried to detonate a suicide vest so his enemies would not capture him.  However, he did not do a decent job so he could not go down to hell to commune with Shaitan and achieve his 72 virgins (and yes, young boys, too).  We guess his people were able to drag his mauled body away to safety.[xix]   Elsewhere, U.S. senators call for better regulation on cryptocurrencies as they are the number one way in which criminals and terrorists move money around and get paid for services.   Finally, the founder of the terrorist group, Hezbollah- Iran’s 74-year-old Ali-Akbar Mohtashamipour- died from a Chi-Vi infection.  Good riddance.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information–  After chaos ensued in the Big Apple over the weekend with the return of Chi-Vi curfews, lockdowns, and restrictions from Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, NYPD arrests at least 23 people.  NO bail for them.  Next- and as expected- following one California’s county making changes to HOW it collects COVID-19 fatalities data, Chi-Vi deaths in Alameda County collapsed by 25-percent.  Alameda County- home of Oakland, California- now is only compiling COVID-19 deaths only if the virus actually killed them, not that the victim merely died with traces of the Bat Flu in their system.  We believe that deaths formerly blamed on the Xi Jinping Virus were driven higher due to politics and financial grants and not because they truly are as high as claimed.  Politics, baby, it’s all about POLITICS.   Meanwhile, Stanford University epidemiologist and professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s credibility is completely shot.  Finally, a new report broadcast on Newsmax says that ‘rare genetic sequencing in COVID-19 suggest a Wuhan lab leak’ because it would appear the virus was modified in the lab and not in nature.[xx]  
  72. 2021 Monday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– A day after filing a lawsuit against the seemingly corrupt and fraudulent Dominion Voting Systems, the lawyer who filed it on behalf of mega-businessman Mike Lindell has resigned from the firm.   Meanwhile, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says that ‘probes into voter and election fraud don’t happen overnight.’ 
  73. 2021 Monday K: Social Media News and Big Tech News– A French government watchdog is going after Google by accusing them of abusing their market power in online advertising.  (Note- we could say much about Google, one of the most corrupt, crooked companies on the face of the planet but we won’t).   In other news, following Nigeria closing down Twitter over its ban of a recent tweet by that nation’s President Muhammadu Buhari, Jack Dorsey’s eunuchs began wailing that ‘Twitter is a human right.’  No, Twitter is FECAL MATTER, President Donald J. Trump should have shut them and their equally pathetic pansy buddies at Facebook DOWN.   
  74. 2021 Monday L: U.S. Supreme Court News– The United States Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that NO citizenship should be available to those given TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS.  They say that people given something ‘temporary’ should not then be granted something ‘permanent.’  Once whatever crisis ends from whence, they came, they must return home.  Period.   Next, the high court rejected a lower court case in which the ruling said that ONLY males could register for the Selective Service aka the Draft.  The court said it’s up to Congress to determine who can and who cannot be drafted. 
  75. 2021 Monday M: Moron News– Shame and humiliation continue to grow for Sandy “The Fly” Cortez (AOC) as people continue taking shots at her over telling her pobrecita abuelita NOT to take the $100,000 conservative commentator Matt Walsh raised in TEN HOURS to help “The Fly’s” granny.  Since poor abuelita has been told NOT to take the cash for house renovations by her granddaughter, GoFundMe will refund the money- nearly $104,000- to the hundreds of thousands of kind, caring donors.  In other Moron News, CNN’s Brian “The Schmeckel” Stelter is taking incoming fire over his ass-kissing, boot-licking interview with White House chief propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki over the weekend.  Stelter- who lost his testicles seemingly at birth- is nothing but a ground-kissing, brown-nosing POS.  We cannot imagine what he must do for Jeff Zucker to maintain his job…; next, California is forging ahead with giving SLAVE REPARATIONS to former slaves…seeing as how California NEVER had slavery, it seems rather stupid.  Still, a desperate governor will do anything to cling to office (but note- black people who signed the recall petition won’t get a dime and even worse, whatever they receive will be 100-percent taxable.  YOU heard it here, first).[xxi]  In other Moron News, ‘environmentalist’ (and angriest teenager alive) Greta Thunberg ‘is back’ with a new video.  So f**king what?
  76. 2021 Monday N: Health And Medical Alerts– there may be hope for drooling Joe Biden, “Mumbles” Pelosi, and vacant-eyed Senator Dianne Feinstein: the Food and Drug Administration- the FDA- has approved a new Alzheimer’s disease drug, the first in nearly two decades.  Biogen’s new drug- aducanumab will be marketed under the brand-name Aduhelm®.  While it might be way too late for nonagenarians such as “Mumbles’ and centenarians like ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ and Di-Fi, there may be hope for numerous others.  Thank you, Biogen.
  77. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden and his boss, Barack Hussein Obama are out there doing a quick-step as to HOW WONDERFUL Obamacare is even as Red States are severing ties with the socialized system of healthcare.  (Note- the two should take their act on the road).  Speaking of the regime, chief White House propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says press briefings will soon return to 100-percent capacity.  Elsewhere, after the GOP rejected Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan, the GOP rejected his counteroffer which led to drooling Joe to reject the next offer from the GOP.  (Note- news reports suggest that Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is having a hell of a time trying to push the regime’s agenda as things surrounding the usurper president continue to implode).  In other Biden regime news, a new poll says that with JoJo Biden in the White House, the regime is not enjoying an early bounce in Germany and France what with the (fraudulent) change in White House occupancy.  (Note- everyone KNOWS the truth- that’s why).  Finally, the regime claims to have recovered millions in ransom monies paid to the hackers who shuttered the Colonial Pipeline.  Good.
  78. 2021 Monday P: Political News I– As the U.S. birthrate continues to decline, questions arise as to whether the federal government should encourage its citizens to get married and to produce new generations of kids in much the same way Hungary and other nations have.  (Note- it seems like our country frowns on marriage, promotes legions of bastard children, and non-reproductive styles of living like homosexuality and transgenderism.  Maybe things would be better if the Russians and Chi-Coms took over?).   In other news, Megabank J.P. Morgan-Chase has announced it’s going to refuse donations to ALL Republicans who question the legitimacy of the illegitimate 2020 Elections.  (Note- that’s a bank brown-nosing the Dems for you).  Elsewhere, former Governor “Crooked Ed” Rendell, DS-PA, says of the ‘infrastructure plan’ that some ‘nontraditional infrastructure’ (like what, Ed?) should be left within it its thousands of pages. 
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Political News II– Kimberly Klacik, former congressional candidate and founder of the Red Renaissance PAC says the ongoing killings among black Americans with guns is  a left-wing cultural genocide.   Today, we learned that yesterday on Fox News Channel, the ignoramus Chris Wallace was trying to light into Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, over his defense of the filibuster and his refusal to join fellow Democrats in pushing the “For the People Act,” aka H.R. 1/S 1, the total theft of America’s elections system.  Wallace called the steadfast senator ‘naïve.’[xxii]  Elsewhere, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed two bills into law today, both of which deal with foreign threats and intrusions into the state.  The first law prohibiting foreign influence in the Sunshine State, singling out nations like Russia, communist China, Iran, Venezuela, Syria, Cuba, and other s—hole countries.  The second one singles out the Chi-Coms in particular forbidding them to establish Confucius Institutes and funding universities and newspapers with wagonloads of Chi-Com cash.  Good for you, Governor.
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump said (1) that Mark Zuckerberg broke the law with drop-boxes on Election Day.  He also said that cryptocurrencies are a SCAM, something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  When asked if he would run with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis in 2024 as his running mate, he said, ‘sure, it’s possible.’  Unclear as to whether he would run with Vice President Mike Pence again- we rather doubt it.  Elsewhere, Javier Villalobos becomes the first GOP governor-elect in the history of McAllen, Texas.  In a city 85-percent Hispanic and mostly Democrat, the people want someone willing to STOP the flood of illegal aliens.  
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News IV– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, along with Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that the popularity of the ‘America First’ rallies proves that power in the United States does NOT reside in Washington, D.C., but around the country among the American people.  Elsewhere, Boston Police Commissioner Dennis White is fired over claims of domestic violence at home.  Ouch.  Later in the day, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that ‘Dr. Fauci must go.’  Meanwhile, news arises that former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Republican, will challenge sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, DS-NV, in the 2022 Elections.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– we have three new nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Awards this year, the first being whacked-out psychiatrist Dr. Aruna Khilanani- who recently gave a speech on April 6, 2021, to students at Yale University School of Medicine in which, she talked about wanting to kill and bury white people.  Wow.  Next, Calvin Pearson and his dimwitted sidekick, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Jones, creators of the 1619 Project made the list, too, as both of them deserve the ‘Lavrentiy Beria treatment’ of ‘lead to the back of the head down in the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison in central Moscow- symbolically, of course (racist bigot- what were you thinking?).  The third and final person deserving of the treatment is Robin Di Angelo, the promoter of WHITE FRAGILITY who earns millions of dollars promoting this foul rot.  Congratulations.  You join our growing list.
  83. 2021 Monday U: Miscellaneous News I– A day or so before Kelly Stewart was to become the newest betting analyst at ESPN, she was fired over previously acknowledged tweets from nearly a decade ago, tweets she deleted, in which she called people attacking her ‘fags’ and other derogatory names.  Folks, at what flipping point does one’s past disappear?  At some point, it simply must, especially if the person acknowledges his or her fault and apologizes.  Enough is flipping enough already.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are going to build a nuclear reactor in Wyoming while Jeff Bezos is planning to embark on a suborbital flight into space within the next couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines makes Chi-Vi vaccine passports optional for its guests.
  84. 2021 Monday V: Nasa, Space, and UFO News– speaking of space, NASA administrator Bill Nelson, D-FL, says that ‘NASA scientists are investigating the U.S. Navy’s films of UFO incidents.’  Good.  This is a national security issue.
  85. 2021 Monday W: National Security News– Red State reports exclusively that the ‘highest-ranking defector to come out of communist China has been working with and being protected by the Defense Intelligence Agency. This defector- God forbid ‘Chi-Com Joe’ Biden gets ahold of his or her identity as unlike what the libs claimed President Donald J. Trump would do with the Russians, Joe Biden most certainly will for his Chi-Com masters that person will be in grave danger- has informed the DIA of all manner of clandestine weapons programs.  Not only this but the defector has also pointed to Chi-Com spies in the FBI, the CIA, and in several other sensitive government agencies.  This is NOT good.  Ferret out this scum and put them in prison.  Apparently, when FBI Director Chris Wray heard of this, he was ‘blindsided.’  This article must be read to be believed. [xxiii]
  86. 2021 Monday X: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former Alabama segregationist and Governor James Patterson, Democrat, dies at age 99.  We suspect that Joe Biden knew Governor Patterson and knew him well seeing as how the old coot knew all the segregationists.
  87. 2021 Monday Y: The Wrap-Up– In Pakistan, two express trains slammed into one another killing at least 51 people in the human-caused disaster.  Looks like Casey Jones driving the train was high on cocaine…(so sang the Grateful Dead[xxiv]).  In other news, the Biden regime is defending the indefensible upcoming meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin who is going to rip the feeble old Joe a new one on June 16, 2021, in Switzerland.  Speaking of drooling old Joe, people are asking WTF over his lack of any word on the 77th anniversary of the D-Day landings while he continues to flounder about the White House before returning home to Delaware or to Camp David on the weekends.  (We suspect his keepers dope him up with all manner of drugs to try to keep him in some sort of coherent state.  Wow).[xxv]
  88. 2021 Monday Z: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– tomorrow night’s Mega-Millions Draw #1666 as of today is worth $56 million.  We will share the results of the draw tomorrow night.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Brand new week and Vladdie is here.  Let’s see what happens today…

  57. 2005 Monday: About 50 miles north of Kabul, Afghanistan, something goes awry at a munitions dump.  The place blows up killing dozens of people with no full accounting of how many took a one-way trip to meet with Allah or how many others were left devastated one way or another.  Wow.

  62. 2010 Sunday: The European Union and International Monetary Fund present Greece with 120 billion Euro bailout packages, to help rid them of their sovereign debt.   Elsewhere, following the bombing of the Mogadishu mosque yesterday, the death toll rises to 45 and the focus falls on the al-Qaida trash.  Light them up.
  63. 2011 Monday: As the news continues to spread about whacking Osama bin Laden, tens of thousands of people gather at Ground Zero in New York City as well as in other places around the country to celebrate the death of this terrorist POS.  The world also learns that in accordance with Islamic law, U.S. military authorities buried him via a sea burial in the Indian Ocean so that a burial site on land would not become a terrorist shrine.  The Allies did the same thing with the Nazis executed at Nuremburg.  They were cremated and went into a river.

  68. 2016 Monday: The ‘religion of peace’ is on the move yet again, this time in Baghdad, Iraq, where three separate bombings claim the lives of at least 14 poor souls including a number of Shiite pilgrims while the Syrian Army takes up positions around its prison in the city of Hama where violent prisoners have overthrown the prison staff and are holding them as hostages.  What will President Bashar al-Assad do?  We think he’ll employ poison gas inside the prison killing all of them (and the guards).   
  69. 2016 Monday A: Elsewhere, the Catholic Church in the Philippines urges its followers to reject Roderigo Duterte who seems to be little more than a whack job.  Down in Venezuela, El Presidente Nicolas Maduro orders clocks in his nation to be moved forward by half-an-hour since the country is facing a major electricity shortage and that somehow moving the clocks up by 30 minutes will alleviate the suffering of the people.  YOU know what will alleviate their suffering?  Your fat neck dangling from a noose in the center of Caracas.  POS communist.

  71. 2018 Wednesday: Disaster befalls romaine lettuce in Yuma, Arizona, as a massive e. coli outbreak sickens at least 121 people across 25 states killing one in the process.  Grocery stores around the country put out immediate recalls and stop-sales on all romaine lettuces, fresh and packaged, coming out of the region.   Elsewhere, as a show of good faith, ahead of the summit between President Donald J. Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un, the North Koreans release the last three American detainees they have been keeping as a potential future trump card.
  72. 2019 Thursday: Iowa passes one of the strictest abortion bans saying ‘can’t happen’ after the detection of a fetal heartbeat.  Good for them.   Elsewhere, Senator Michael Bennet, D-CO, says he is in the running for the 2020 presidential nomination of his party.  No one cares.  Meanwhile, Facebook and Instagram ban several big names from its site for spreading violence and hate.  Among the folks bumped off the sites are Alex Jones, the Reverend Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, Milo Yiannopoulos, and several others.  We shall see.
  73. 2020 Saturday: After California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom orders ONLY the beaches of Orange County closed, the sheriff of the county says, ‘he will not enforce the order.’  Meanwhile, on the COVID-19- Wuhan Flu front- confirmed global cases are 3,424,254; confirmed deaths sit at 243,674; and confirmed recoveries are 1,092,715.  In the United States, the Kung Flu Virus Crisis- given us by the communist Chinese- is thus: confirmed cases sit at 1,157,782, confirmed deaths at 67,046, and confirmed recoveries are 150,934.  Meanwhile, the communist Chinese claim the following numbers (let’s see if they have changed): confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785!  Which is almost the same as one week ago, lying scumbags.  Around the United States, more states continue reopening and no upticks in the Coronavirus Crisis are seen so to all authoritarian governors out there, you better lighten up.  (It is interesting to note that Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer is still whining about ‘Confederate and swastika flags being seen at protests but every piece of film we have looked at, those flags are nowhere to behold.  ANTIFA- do your job, go to Michigan, and protest this b***h).

  80. 2021 Sunday F: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Kansas City, Missouri- 71-year-old Joseph Naumann told Newsmax TV that ‘it’s wrong for Joe Biden to use his Catholic ‘faith’ because it misguides Catholic listeners.’  Look, WE believe (and I’m a Jew- Mo) that the Roman Catholic Church should excommunicate Joe Biden and other scurrilous, reprobate Catholics such as House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the decrepit nonagenarian because she like he are big PROPONENTS of the Pro-Death Movement and NOT because they believe women have a right to control their own bodies but because they make money off it via campaign contributions.
  81. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– Like Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is having a challenging time within her party for being the neo-lib that she is by going against President Donald J. Trump.  She is expected to be removed from GOP leadership by June at the latest.   Next former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, says that ‘Lockheed-Martin possesses UFO wreckage. This is getting better all the time.   We are looking forward to the upcoming UFO report next month- if the feds actually release it.  Elsewhere, the runoff for the U.S. House seat in Texas 6th congressional district is between two Republicans: Susan Wright (19.2%), backed by President Donald J. Trump and Jake Ellzey (13.8%), which has the Democrats sobbing gobs of tears as they genuinely thought they were going to propel third-place runner-up Jana Lynne Sanchez (13.4%) into the House to help a beleaguered “Mumbles” Pelosi.  
  82. 2021 Sunday H: Political News II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, continues sharing his views on Afghanistan and says we must withdraw from the country NOW.  We concur wholeheartedly and think we should have been out of there before President George W. Bush left office (and should never have gone into Iraq).  Since going to that forlorn country, Senator Paul says we have blown $825 billion to 1 trillion building roads and schools, protecting women, and doing other non-war-fighting jobs at great cost to our country in resources and human lives.  (Note- I said yesterday that the Democrats and Neocons are seeking a “Gulf of Tonkin Incident” so they can keep forces in that s—hole country in perpetuity and to continue reaping the wealth from the Military-Industrial-Political Complex- Mo).
  83. 2021 Sunday I: Political News III– The family of the late Ashli Babbitt is suing the Capitol Hill Police Department for her murder on January 06, 2021.  We still don’t know who fired the fatal shot (but we are learning more about the officer by the day.  We believe her killing was preordained that the House speaker- in control of the Capitol Hill Police Department- wanted to make sure someone lost their life in this FALSE FLAG OPERATION)- Mo).   Elsewhere, the U.S. State Department has announced that there is “NO TRUTH” regarding a prisoner swap with the Iranians.   Meanwhile, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, says he remains hopeful on police reform occurring in the U.S. Senate.  Finally, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says of Joe Biden’s $2.1 trillion infrastructure bill that it’s ‘like someone with a new credit card.’   Finally, famed economic adviser Larry Kudlow says Joe Biden’s BIG GOVERNMENT PUSH is destabilizing and bad for the United States.’
  84. 2021 Sunday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is warning of a “U.S.-communist China Armageddon.”  Amen, Mr. Secretary, amen.   Next, Kim Jong Un warns the U.S. of GRAVE CONSEQUENCES over Joe Biden’s mumbling, stumbling speech the other day on the 99th day of his regime before a Joint Session of the U.S. Congress.   Elsewhere, British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is being forced to answer for his personal spending.  Oooh, BoJo could be going down.  Meanwhile, riotous soccer fans stormed Manchester United’s field over the U.S.-based owners proposing the ‘Super Soccer League’ that would feature only elite teams and would be a power grab by wealthy billionaires.   Finally, a Cuban dissident’s hunger strike is challenging the communist regime. 
  85. 2021 Sunday K: Miscellaneous News I– Yesterday, the Empire State Building celebrated its 90th birthday.  Next, SpaceX’s Dragon Capsule returned four astronauts back from the International Space Station in the first nighttime landing in the Gulf of Mexico since the Apollo missions.  Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has another job (not that she shows up for any of them): she is now going to be the head of the National Space Council.
  86. 2022 Monday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Formed in the late 1950s as the Hawks, the group that would come to be known as the Band evolved in 1967.  Featuring four Canadians and one American, the band erupted onto the stage with their first album, “Music from the Big Pink,” (July 01, 1968).  In some ways, the band was a throwback in that having performed with Bob Dylan for a lengthy time, they combined elements of acoustic folks with rock and roll with the music of the prairies, the back-hills, and other American-Canadian forms in an extremely alluring package of sound.  The band features Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  Their first album touched the souls of many and put them on a path to stardom, one that would take them to Woodstock in 1969 and beyond.  One of the big hits was “The Weight.”  What we have here is the 50th anniversary edition of this celebrated album, “Music from Big Pink 50th Anniversary Edition,” a beefed-up effort featuring all manner of additional gems for your listening pleasure.  The album came out on January 01, 2018.  We hope you will seek this album out and consider adding it to your growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did, of that, we guarantee.

118. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 28, 2022

2003 Wednesday: U.S. forces open fire on a group of Iraqi protesters in Fallujah, Iraq, after they began throwing things and making threats. This would be the focal point for the buildup to what would become known as the Battle of Fallujah in 2004, a make-or-break effort in the unnecessary invasion launched by the George W. Bush administration. (Note- we think this is a prime example of the Deep State influencing a president into a war and then when it goes wrong, they abandon them to their fate).

  53. 2003 Wednesday: U.S. forces open fire on a group of Iraqi protesters in Fallujah, Iraq, after they began throwing things and making threats.  This would be the focal point for the buildup to what would become known as the Battle of Fallujah in 2004, a make-or-break effort in the unnecessary invasion launched by the George W. Bush administration.  (Note- we think this is a prime example of the Deep State influencing a president into a war and then when it goes wrong, they abandon them to their fate). 
  54. 2004 Thursday: In Fallujah, Iraq, violent jihadists begin assaulting U.S. forces.  This leads to amplified intensity on both sides as the American troops call in fire missions and air support such as C-130 gunships which come in station on scene and begin riddling the jihadis with gatling guns and rockets.  A recent poll released by CNN says that a majority of Iraqis see the Americans as OCCUPIERS while a small minority sees them as liberators.  What a flipping mess.

Bush administration alleging that the Bush administration and allies such as AT&T and the NSA maintain secret computer rooms where the Bush administration conducts surveillance on not only foreign terror suspects but on the American people.  The Bush administration then demonstrates that what the EFF alleges to be true is true by trying to use the State Secrets Privilege to block the lawsuit against AT&T and the NSA.  President Bush- why not flipping just say that YOU are spying on the American people?  WTF?  (Never really liked the Bushes but this is bad, really bad).
  57. 2007 Sunday: The so-called ‘religion of peace’ is busy today.  In Iraq, a mosque in Karbala suffers a suicide bombing that blows 55 worshippers up and, on their way, to meet with Allah far sooner than any of them may have planned.  Meanwhile, farther east in Pakistan, a suicide bombing there blows another 22 people to meet with Allah while also wounding several government officials and loads of other people going about their daily lives.

  59. 2009 Wednesday: RINO Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania decides to leap aboard the Obama train hoping to ride to future success on the coattails of the Bamster.  He switches from being a ‘Republican’ to being a Democrat.  Woo-ooo, good for you, loser.  A year later, the self-serving maggot would lose his seat to Pat Toomey.  No one likes rats, Senator Specter, no one.
  60. 2010 Thursday: A Palestinian mob approaches the Gaza-Israeli border and the are heaving chunks of concrete, rocks, and setting things on fire.  The Israeli Defense Forces eventually are forced to defend themselves and a young Palestinian man lies dead while the rest of them scramble off like the rats they are.  Gaza, do something to help your people instead of maintaining them in generational poverty and misery.  It’s not Israel’s fault.
  61. 2011 Friday: Thanks to the Obama Administration’s horrible handling of the U.S. economy and for pushing Obamacare, Panasonic Corporation reportedly plans to announce it will cut 40,000 jobs.  Meanwhile, troublemaker former one-term U.S. President Jimmy Carter shares his views on North Korea with the world.  He just returned from visiting the godforsaken country and says that the ‘U.S. and South Korea must stop starving the North Korean people, that it’s a violation of human rights’ and a whole bunch of other crap.  Jimmy: STFU.
  62. 2012 Sunday: The government of Bashar al-Assad accuses UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon of ‘encouraging attacks on the government.’  Elsewhere, as Chi-Coms scour Beijing searching for blind dissident Chen Guangcheng who fled house arrest and into the streets, rumors are flying that he somehow made his way to the U.S. Embassy where he sought refuge.  Not good for U.S.-Chi-Com relations but it is what it is.
  63. 2013 Monday: During the new swearing in ceremony of Enrico Letta, an Italian man shoots and wounds two police officers outside Palazzo Chigi.  Elsewhere, original bassist with the Steve Miller Band[viii]—Lonnie Turner—died on this date in Lebanon, Oregon, at age 66.

  68. 2019 Sunday: Disney’s Marvel movie, “Avengers: Endgame,” becomes the first film to generate more than a billion dollars on its release- in this case, $1.2 billion.  Wow.  Meanwhile, in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” “The Long Night” episode surpasses “The Lord of the Rings” Battle of Helms Deep (44 minutes) for the longest battle scene in movie history with a gory battle almost 88 minutes in length.  It’s a great one to be sure.  Look for it.   Elsewhere, in West Chester Township, Ohio, police stumble upon four family members shot to death in an apartment.  They are searching for the killer.  
  69. 2020 Tuesday: News continues to break about “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s sexual assault of then-U.S. Senate staffer Tara Reade in 1993.  Meanwhile, Hillary Rodham Clinton- mum about those assault allegations- endorses former Vice President Biden for president on this day.  On the COVID-19 front, confirmed cases around the world now sit at 3,083,467 what with confirmed deaths at 213,824 but 915,988 confirmed recoveries.   In the United States, confirmed cases rests at 1,033,721, confirmed deaths at 58,947, but number of confirmed recoveries sits at 117,690, which is great.  Various states are reopening in bits and pieces and the outlook of Americans is that things are going to get better, and they are ready to return to work now.  Meanwhile, calls continue going out as to why famed ‘anti-fascist group,’ ANTIFA, is not in Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York, and other states with left-wing despotic governors doing battle with these would-be dictators.

  76. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Joe Biden is sending $310 million to Guatemala to ‘help them’ stem the tide of illegal aliens flowing north through their country to the United States; we’ll see.  Speaking of the border, Customs and Border Patrol reports that last month, the feds took 170,000 illegal aliens into custody.   Elsewhere, the Biden regime-controlled U.S. Department of Justice has quietly repealed Trump era restrictions on the amount of federal aid going to ‘sanctuary cities’ and ‘sanctuary states.’   Meanwhile, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is blasting the Biden regime for NOT permitting him entry into the illegal alien holding pens in Donna, Texas.
  77. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm is receiving loads of criticism over the numerous conflicts of interest surrounding her such as her connections to an electric vehicle automaker.   The secretary has millions of dollars of stock in Proterra, a company that will benefit- as will she- depending upon which way she goes in doling out taxpayer dollars.  Wow.  Next, Joe Biden taps anti-Trumper Harris County, Texas, Sheriff Ed Gonzalez to head Immigration and Customs Enforcement, aka ICE.   Meanwhile, tonight’s ‘Joe Biden address to a joint session of Congress’ will be devoid of a ‘designated survivor.’  So says White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki because hardly anyone will be in attendance.  
  78. 2021 Wednesday H: Joe Biden Regime News II– Tonight is the NIGHT, folks, Joe is going to reveal yet another multi-trillion bill, his so-called “Family Plan,” that will require of ALL Americans forced preschool for 3-and-4-year-olds so we can indoctrinate the kids at an earlier age and teach them to rat out their parents.  This is NOT good, and parents must resist this crap.  Political strategist says that Joe Biden ‘won’t reveal the sticker shock’ which means it is going to be COSTLY.   Next, Joe Biden is going to name longtime Marxist political hack, Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel to become U.S. ambassador to Japan.  Finally, former governor and Missouri U.S. Senate candidate Eric Greitens says that “Biden-Harris first one-hundred days is marked by failure.”  You are preaching to the choir, sir.  (Note- although we mentioned this yesterday, we will mention it again- the Washington Post, aka WAPO, says it ‘won’t fact check “Pro-China Joe” Biden the way it did President Donald J. Trump.’  Wow).[xxi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘Biden administration (i.e., the regime) displays schizophrenic undertones as it seeks de-escalation and confrontation at the same time.’  Absolutely true.  Next, as the truth continues to hit the presses over Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations in doing business with Iran while a private citizen, Congressman Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, says that the allegations against ‘Lurch’ appear to be ‘somewhat treasonous.’   Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district says, ‘Kerry MUST resign.’  We concur.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken acknowledges that the U.S. pullout of Afghanistan could lead to a takeover of the country by the Taliban.  Finally, the U.S. sees major rollbacks on the sanctions placed atop Iran so the U.S. can return to the bogus Iran nuclear deal.
  80. 2021 Wednesday J: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– In the craziest news of the day, we learn that crackhead/pedophile presidential son, Hunter “Crack Pipe” Biden is going to teach a class on FAKE NEWS at New Orleans’ Tulane University.  WTF?  In other whacked-out news, Democrats are demanding that the FCC block the sale of a popular radio station so that Miami Latinos CANNOT listen to conservative talk radio.  WTF?  Meanwhile, co-founder of the San Francisco-based $2 billion startup company, Iterable, Justin Zhu, was fired for micro-dosing LSD prior to a board meeting back in 2019.  Seems rather late to be terminating someone for something that occurred 2.5-3 years ago.  Strange.  Finally, a contestant on “Jeopardy!” made the ‘OK’ gesture and is under fire for being a white supremacist.  People, give it a F***ING REST already.  Enough is enough.
  81. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that while the Dems claim to SUPPORT Israel, they put forth a true anti-Semite POS such as Colin Kahl for the No. 3 position at the Pentagon: the undersecretary for policy.  (Note- Mr. Kahl says he will take a bipartisan approach to his job.  Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy- what a guy).  Next, President Donald J. Trump says of Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, that in so many words, she is a ‘LOSER.’   Moving on, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, is trying to save his job by signing a tough abortion bill preventing abortion for genetic abnormalities.   Meanwhile, Congressmen Jeff Duncan, R-SC 3rd congressional district, and Doug Lamborn, R-CO 5th congressional district, are pushing back HARD on the Biden’s regime pushing of the bogus Critical Race Theory which is Critical Race Theory BS.  Good for you gentlemen!  Finally, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says, ‘don’t denigrate Arizona’s 2020 Election audit.’  Amen.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– In some shocking news today, the feds swooped down on ‘America’s Mayor’ and Donald J. Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani’s Manhattan apartment and removed all of his electronic devices in an early morning raid.  Mr. Giuliani offered to meet with the authorities and to hand over his devices but no, much like they did during the raid on Roger Stone’s home, they wanted to INTIMIDATE the man, trying to tie to him the crimes committed by Hunter Biden in the Ukraine.  Likewise, they also raided the home of Victoria Toensing and Joe DiGenova, two more big Trump supporters and legal eagles.   In other news, as California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to whine and cry over the recall effort against him, one of the recall advisers says that ‘one-third of the signatories are Democrats, one-third are independents, and one-third are Republicans.’  Everyone wants Gavin Newsom OUT of office ASAP.[xxii]   Finally, Texas Department of Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is working with Stephen Miller to defeat Joe Biden’s RACIST policies on equity rather than equality when it comes to providing aid to farmers.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– An alternate juror on the Derek Chauvin murder trial says that ‘mob riots, protests, and the racial climate did NOT influence the jury’s decision.’  Sure.  Uh huh, of course not.  Next, following a cop shooting of a black suspect, a North Carolina judge denies a request for the video cam footage.   Next, a video shows that a California man died while the cops were holding him.  Here we go again.   Regarding firearms, a new poll shows that support for heavier gun laws is lacking support among the American people.
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: Notable Departure– NASA Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins is dead at the age of 90.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3555 with a $41 million pot on the line tonight: 14, 18, 19, 33, 37, and Mega 19.  Out of 116,245 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $41,234.  The winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in Coarsegold, CA 93614.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #841 with a $116 million pot on the line: 16, 18, 35, 39, 53, and Powerball 21.   Out of 55,428 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $859,829.  The winning ticket was sold at Stater Brothers 188 in Grand Terrace, CA 92313.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: The Wrap-Up– Amazing to see Joe Biden’s ‘address’ in which, he praised the police, noting most of them are okay.  Here is how socialism works- you grind law enforcement and the military in the dirt, kick them in the teeth, beat them up, purge them, and then when they can take no more, you make a deal: IF you don’t want things to return to the way they were- you being public enemies and all- you will now serve as storm-troopers and go after our enemies.  YOU can do whatever you want to them and without any oversight or parameters.  This is evil- glad I am now in Israel- Mo.  We love and cherish our freedoms… Meanwhile, the three people involved in the death of Ahmaud Arbery have been indicted on hate crimes charges.   A federal grand jury indicted Travis McMichael, Gregory McMichael, and William “Roddie” Bryan today which is good.  These three crackers have much for which to answer.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,831 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate 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 raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,076 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 463 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  93. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Sensing that Joe Biden is on the verge of mental collapse, Russia once again warned the United States of potential retaliation over America’s asinine sanctions.   Meanwhile, Senator Steve Daines, R-MT, says he ‘witnessed ample signs of Russian war crimes in Ukraine’ during a recent visit to that war-torn country.  Next, reports continue to arise of the Russian navy employing dolphins to guard their Black Sea base at Sebastopol.  This has been tried before but has never proven successful.  Still, with the Russkies, one never knows.
  94. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The Russians have raised rocket and missile attacks on Ukraine once again.  Several blasts rocked Ukraine’s capital city, Kyiv, today.   The British minister of defense- Ben Wallace- says that ‘Russia could become a cancerous growth in Ukraine.’  Meanwhile, Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax this evening that if Russia were to use tactical nukes in Ukraine, ‘all bets would be off, and the U.S. must put troops on the ground in direct conflict with the Russkies.’  This is becoming more ludicrous by the day.  We cannot fight a land war with Russia in eastern Europe, it’s impossible to do and will lead to the Chi-Coms becoming the world’s master.  Not good.
  95. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been the nation’s ‘border czar’ for the past 391 days and even worse, she has not arrived to do her job in 305 days.  Our estimates of the rising costs associated with rising numbers of illegal aliens continues breaking records every day.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 118 days is $752,442,887.  Next, the cost of caring for the detritus of the world since the Biden-Harris regime grabbed power on January 20, 2021, is $42,498,248,630.  The number of illegal aliens encountered at the border since January 01, 2022, is approximately 1,203,637.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 46,635,294.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 95-to-130 million which is unsustainable for any country and must be fixed now.  Deport ALL of them.  Now.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  96. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says the southern border is ‘broken because of Joe Biden’s attitude.’  George P. Bush, R-TX, says that the southern border is ‘out of control.’  Next, while testifying before the Congress, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the only solution for solving the border crisis is to give every illegal alien who has swarmed across it amnesty.  Folks, not only this insane, it’s also the kill stroke for the United States.  It’s over, it’s done, it’s finished.  In other border-related news, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is seeking donations with which to bus illegal aliens into Washington, D.C.  While we think this is great, how about finding a way to push them back across the border into Mexico?   Simultaneously, Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, is suing the Biden regime over its upcoming plan to lessen border security next month with the overturning of Title 42.  DHS Secretary Mayorkas says he believes there will be 18,000 or more encounters of illegal aliens per day once the pro-American Title 42 ends.  We must fight back against this evil.
  97. 2022 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $50.55 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.22 (3) Novavax: $44.27 (4) Merck & Company: $88.61 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.59  (6) BioNTech: $143.40 (7) Moderna: $142.52.
  98. 2022 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $98.09 (2) Boeing: $154.19 (3) General Dynamics: $242.20 (4) Lockheed Martin: $441.69 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $445.17.
  99. 2022 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.22 (2) DuPont: $67.58 (3) 3M: $147.21 (4) Honeywell: $189.92  (5) Teijen: $1,388.00.
  100. 2022 Thursday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.06 (2) Beyond Meat: $39.82  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $69.55.
  101. 2022 Thursday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $156.21 (2) Lowe’s: $205.13 (3) Home Depot: $312.04 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $562.00 (5) Amazon: $2,891.93.
  102. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden endorsed a new bill that will funnel assets seized from Russian oligarchs to Ukraine.  Joe also asked Congress for an additional $33 billion in aid for Ukraine which means the Biden regime will most likely skim off 12-20-percent for the Biden Family’s coffers.
  103. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll pulls NO punches and says that a large majority of Americans blame Joe Biden for skyrocketing gas prices.   In other disastrous news for the Biden regime, the Chi-Coms and Iran are going to increase their mutual defense pact.  This is a direct slap in the face of slobbering Joe Biden.  In yet another problem for the feeble U.S. ‘president’- one who could not speak today at a ‘press conference’ of sorts without going totally BLANK in his thoughts, words, and speech- parental rights groups are pushing back with growing force over Joe’s suggestion that children do not belong to their parents but to the regime.  George Orwell could not have foretold the topics of his classic novel, “1984,” than what we are seeing today.
  104. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– President Ron Klain, uh, excuse me, President Joe Biden, continues dangling the bait that the Biden regime could cancel all CURRENT student debt but not over $50,000.  Alas, it must be an election year for this carrot of the carrot of ‘reparations for slavery’ to be dangling in front of the young, dumb, and full of c*m voters.  Should Joe Biden cancel student loan debt, he will alienate all those who have struggled to pay their loans off who by far outnumber those who have not.
  105. 2022 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The House select committee investigating (yeah, right) the FALSE FLAG EVENTS of January 06, 2021, announce their plan to hold at least eight public hearings, beginning in June, in the hope of somehow influencing the voters to vote ‘D’ on their ballots in November.  We suspect their ratings will be at the bottom of the crapper.  We also suspect the American people will become even more infuriated with the regime and its allies than they are now and if- we repeat- IF- the elections are honest, the Dems are going to go the way of the dinosaur.
  106. 2022 Thursday S: Big Tech News– CNN + threw in the towel today, two full days ahead of the scheduled shutdown on April 30, 2022.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell. We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions. We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

  32. 1960 Sunday: American Samoa sets up a constitutional government.
  33. 1961 Monday: Some 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba with which to topple communist thug dictator, Fidel Castro- or so the plan went- on this date.  However, President John F. Kennedy’s plan went awry from the start as Castro’s forces crushed the incursion by the third day.  The CIA was going to provide the freedom fighters with air cover but then President Kennedy and his brother, U.S. Attorney General Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy got cold feet and left them to their demise.
  34. 1964 Friday: The Ford Motor Company officially debuts its Mustang with a base price of $2,368.

Haise, and Jack Swigert splashed down in the Pacific Ocean; four days after a ruptured oxygen tank crippled their spacecraft while en route to the moon.  Meanwhile, former Beatle Paul McCartney[v] releases his first solo effort, “McCartney.”  Elsewhere, at the fabulous Felt Forum in New York City, N.Y., “Big George” Foreman puts his pro record to 18-0 with a 3rd round TKO of opponent, James J.

  43. 1993 Saturday: LAPD police officers found guilty by a jury of their peers of violating Rodney King’s civil rights.  Remember, they pulled Mr. King over after a long car chase and beat the living s**t out of him, unaware that a passerby was recording their actions.   
  44. 1997 Thursday: New Jersey Devils Martin Brodeur is second NHL goalie to score in a playoff game.
  45. 2003 Thursday: U.S. forces get lucky in Iraq as they scoop up one of deposed dictator Saddam Hussein’s half-brothers, Barzan Ibrahim Hassan al-Tikriti, the leader of Iraq’s intelligence-gathering agency, the Mukhabarat.  Off he goes to a black site. 
  46. 2004 Saturday: Once again, the Israelis get their man: Hamas leader and thug- Abdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi, the famed “Lion of Palestine” embarks on a journey to meet with Muhammad.  An Israeli missile strike blows the piece of desert scum to bits.  Congratulations, Israel.  Elsewhere, Spain swears in its new socialist leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, on this date. 
  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 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.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  65. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 2021 Saturday 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 $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[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 when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group, but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

[iv] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

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

[vi] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.

  87. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says ‘Russia will not suspend its military operations in Ukraine even as ‘peace talks’ between the two countries are underway.   Meanwhile, although the Russians claim otherwise, the mayor of Mariupol says that at least 10,000 civilians have died during the siege and that when the siege is lifted, the true numbers of dead civilians could double that.  How is it the United Nations is not raising troops from member countries and forcing Russia to stop its malevolent actions in a peaceful country?
  88. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris- California’s shame- has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster for the past 374 days and worse, she has not shown up to do more than a couple hours’ worth of work in 288 days.  What has the country done to deserve a vice president such as her?  Okay, we do our best to continue computing the true costs of illegal immigration on America, the same way that One America News did prior to Direct TV removing them from their list of channels.  Perhaps because we continue promoting the honest-to-God numbers to the best of our abilities, perhaps this is why we find ourselves under assault from some of the biggest search engines.  It is what it is.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders since January 01, 2022, is $642,844,149.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since the undynamic duo took their oaths with which they swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution is $42,388,919,892.  The number of illegals we estimate to have crossed the border since January 20, 2021, is 1,026,488.  Fourth and final, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 45,401,750.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is the prime reason our country is in a state of economic malaise (not to mention liberal policies).[xxvi] (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  94. 2022 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The White House is preparing for ‘extraordinarily-elevated CPI numbers,’ numbers that are sure to lead massive losses in House and Senate seats in November.  Next, the administration nominates a new commander to lead NATO forward.  Meanwhile, even as COVID-19 numbers continue tanking, the Biden administration is seeking a resumption of forcing EVERY federal worker or contractor to undergo forced vaccination with one of the COVID-19 vaccines.
  95. 2022 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– Although President Joe Biden is going to continue forcing all federal workers to undergo vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccines- and although Dr. Anthony Fauci continues saying the American people are going to have to learn to live with this foul disease, the Pentagon is moving onto the next pandemic, whatever it might be.
  96. 2022 Monday P: Political News I– Law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania arrested an elderly man who was sticking “I DID THAT” stickers onto gasoline pumps.  The stickers featured President Joseph R. Biden pointing to the exorbitant cost of the gas pumped.  Other hilarious stickers featured the nation’s vice president, quoted as saying, “I HELPED.”  While we recognize gas station owners must peel the stickers off- sometimes with difficulty- one cannot sidestep the fact that energy costs are sky high, and that the Biden-Harris administration bears COMPLETE responsibility and not Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.
  97. 2022 Monday Q: Political News II– Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson blasted the White House and its stance on gender affirming/gender reassignment surgeries.  Of course, the White House is a big proponent of life-altering gender surgeries which seems rather devilish to many.  Next, famed economist Peter Navarro says that a ‘perfect storm’ of stagflation is heading our way.   In other news, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush says, ‘it’s right for Governor Greg Abbott to send illegal aliens- what the left euphemistically labels as ‘undocumented migrants- to Washington, D.C., and to other ‘sanctuary locales.’  Finally, in other news Democrat locales would be wise to emulate, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill this morning with which to bolster fatherhood programs across the Sunshine State.
  98. 2022 Monday R: Political News III– Stacey Abrams-backed election law in the Peach State is going to trial.   Meanwhile, in Iowa, a hubbub continues following last night’s ruling by a judge in the state that won’t permit Senator Chuck Grassley’s struggling Democratic challenger- Abby Finkenauer to appear on the state’s Democratic Party primary ballot.  To qualify for the primary ballot, a candidate must have 100 signatures- or more- each from 19 counties to make the grade.  Although the Finkenauer campaign submitted more than 3,500 signatures, she did not get the necessary number to face off against Senator Grassley.  C’ est la vie.  Of the signatures, questions swirled around three of them from two counties.  Go figure.  Stop registering illegal aliens.
  99. 2022 Monday S: Political News IV– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says the White House is being mum on its plans with which to shove portions of the Build Back Better plan through to fruition.  We can only speculate what other evil crap the administration is attempting to insert into this doomed-to-fail bill.  Election Day is fast approaching and contrary to what many progressives are trumpeting, not every Democrat wants to lose his or her seat supporting this crumbling ‘signature package.’
  100. 2022 Monday T: Second Amendment News– The National Rifle Association has slammed President Joseph R. Biden’s new executive orders on the evil ‘ghost guns.’  Since before the founding of the country, Americans have made their own firearms and ammunition and even though President Biden believes he has a winner with this issue, Americans will continue making their own guns and crafting their own ammunition.  It is what free people in a free country do.  We are not communist China yet nor if older Americans continue defending freedom from the new generation of indoctrinated losers, we will continue doing this until the day we die.
  101. 2022 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #974 with a jackpot of $85 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 24, 31, 34, and Power 04.  Out of 62,911 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $33,732.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every artist releases a ‘20th Century Masters,’ i.e., best of compilation, and Robbie Robertson is no different.  We have a collection of the guitarist’s most beloved tunes all in one place so what do you have to lose?  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

[ix] We hope to present the music of the J. Geil’s Band at some point within the next five years.  One of the great American bands, they most certainly deserve to be heard and celebrated by the readership of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 229

91. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, APRIL 01, 2022, UPDATE A:

Former U.S. prosecutor Brett Tolman is correct when he says that IF Hunter Biden were anyone else the POS would have been prosecuted already and most likely serving time in the slammer

  1. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 489,496,951 confirmed cases, +1,419,286, 6,169,763 confirmed deaths, +3,798 and 424,289,174 confirmed recoveries, +1,367,089. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 81,787,041 confirmed cases, UP 22,130 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,007,397 confirmed deaths, UP 388,[i] and 65,297,807 confirmed recoveries, UP to 176,787.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]
  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 558,104 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate 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 raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 194,189 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 436 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  3. 2022 Friday 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: 9,102,677 confirmed cases, 89,052 confirmed deaths, and 8,761,513 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,893,878 confirmed cases, 73,244 confirmed deaths, and 5,820,634 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 240,778 confirmed cases, 1,379 confirmed deaths, and 239,399 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,454,722 confirmed cases, 12,478 confirmed deaths, and 1,442,244 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Kansas: they have 770,082 confirmed cases, 8,294 confirmed deaths, and 756,704 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,926,819 confirmed cases, 10,496 confirmed deaths, and 3,782,095 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Antigua and Barbuda, 199th place on the list: 7,491 cases of the virus, 135 confirmed death and 7,347 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                        
  5. 2022 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,818.27, UP 139.92 points (+0.40%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,261.50 UP 40.98 points (+0.29%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,545.86, UP 15.45 points (+0.34%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $99.42 per barrel, -0.86 (-0.86%).  The price of GOLD is $1,928.50 per troy oz., -25.50 (-1.31%) while the price of SILVER is $24.76 per troy ounce, -0.38 (-1.50%).  The price of PLATINUM is $990.10 per troy oz, -5.70 (-0.57%) while the price of COPPER is $4.71 per pound, -0.05 (-0.96%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,276.50 per troy oz., +14.92 (+0.66%). The price of RHODIUM is $19,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,300,000.00 per CNY/T, -10,000.00 (-0.76%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,441.00 per USD/T, -50.00 (-1.43%). The price of ZINC is $4,343.00 per USD/T., +169.50 (+4.06%).   The price of COCOA is $2,599.00 per USD/T, -51.00 (-1.92%).  The price of COFFEE is $228.25 per USD/T, +1.85 (+0.82%).  The price of LUMBER is $955.10 USD 1,000 board feet -10.20 (-1.06%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000022.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.36 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.90 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 19.84, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 83.25 of theirs.    In Czech Koruna, one greenback equals 22.02 and in Danish Krone, a buck equals 6.73 and in Djiboutian Franc, one dollar equals 177.50 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Friday 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.882 per gallon, $4.193 in Florida, $5.209 in Hawaii, and $4.721 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: U.S. Virgin Islands- $3.469.  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 4th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Syria: $1.195 per U.S. Gallon.[ix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,356,521,770,081 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 Cayman Islands the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India.  This nation holds $216,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Ukraine says it’s foiled a Russian missile attack near Odesa.  Next, fears of the war in neighboring Ukraine have young Russian draft-age males fearful of answering President Vladimir Putin’s call for an additional 134,000 conscripts.   Counterintelligence on Vladimir Putin suggests he’s fearful of cancer and that a coterie of medical professionals and specialists follows him wherever he goes.  Uh, okay.  Sounds like manufactured gossip used to belittle foreign leaders such as Kim Jong Un toting his own crapper around so no one can analyze his fecal matter, Adolf Hitler doing the jig at the capitulation of France in 1940, or Saddam Hussein being a closet homo.  Pay no attention.
  8. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Fighting continues in Ukraine as Ukrainian forces recapture 29 towns and villages from the ‘New Red Army’ forces holding them.  Putin’s troops are falling back, demoralized, discouraged, and downright damned as the ground begins to thaw, supplies and reinforcements practically nonexistent, and a growing desire to return home emerges.  Aid convoys trying to reach Ukrainians cut off by the war are finding themselves stopped by starving Russian soldiers who then make off with the supplies.[xi]   Meanwhile, as Russian attacks continue on the port city of Mariupol, the Turkish navy says it will sail across the Black Sea to the beleaguered urban center and will evacuate civilian refugees seeking to escape the cauldron.
  9. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III– Kyiv is urging its fellow European nations to seal off their borders to Russians and Belarussians.  Meanwhile, an ex-prosecutor at the United Nations (where is the United Nations, by the way?) says that international arrest warrants must be issued for Vladimir Putin.  We are curious as to why other scumbags such as George Soros have not been scooped up by Interpol and sent to the gulags.  How is it these international criminals are able to run around Scott-free.
  10. 2022 Friday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Congressman Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, says that the ‘floodgates along the southern border are about to open’ referring to the end of Title 42 which will end on May 23.  Already, we know that a massive caravan is beginning to move north from Mexico’s southern border bound for the U.S.  Time to start napalming the hell out of them, send them scurrying back to their dens.  Okay, the vice-president, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, our so-called ‘border czar’ has been in charge of the border disaster for 364 days now.  She has not shown up to do her job in 278 days.  Makes one sick, eh?  Ah, well, the cost of caring for Joe Biden’s and Kamala Harris’ illegal aliens since January 01, 2022, is in our estimation, $578,827,573.  Since the undynamic duo took charge on January 20, 2021, the cost of caring for their illegal aliens is $42,331,465,335.  Since the beginning of the year, 933,045 illegal aliens have come in contact or gotten away with/from Border Patrol authorities while the conservative low, low, low estimate of illegal aliens living in the country is 45,308,307.  We believe the number is treble to quadruple that.  DEPORT ALL OF THEM INCLUDING THE OLD PEOPLE AND THE BRATS.  NO ANCHOR BABIES, NO DREAMERS, NONE OF THEM.  Come the RIGHT way, illegal aliens, please.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  11. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Pope Francis apologizes to indigenous Canadians, i.e., ‘First Peoples,’ for the damage inflicted on them by the Catholic Church in association with the Canadian government.  For more than 150 years, Canada’s Native Americans- especially their youth- suffered at the hands of Catholic school headmasters who stripped them of everything connected to their cultures.   Pope Francis also took time to blast Russia over its ‘savage’ and ‘infantile’ war in Ukraine.
  12. 2022 Friday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Apparently, the United Kingdom has seen a spike in new cases of COVID-19, five million or more in the past 7-10 days.  While we doubt this number is as high as it is, coupled with China’s report of a major spike in COVID-19 cases means that over the next 6-7 months- by Election Day- the Dems will have enough ammunition in their arsenal with which to alter how Americans vote once again.  Beware.

  71. 2015 Thursday: In protest of U.S. airstrikes authorized by President Obama in the Iraqi city of Tikrit, Shiite militia forces boycott the fight against ISIS believing that the United States will take credit for the work they have done.  Meanwhile, Great Britain reburies the remains of King Richard III (1452-1485) at Leicester Cathedral after discovering them under a carpark in that city back in 2012.
  72. 2016 Saturday: Democratic-Socialist (Marxist) presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders wins the primaries of Washington, Hawaii, and Alaska on this date.  Meanwhile, in another amazing ‘first’ for the Rolling Stones[x]– after being banned for more than 50 years from playing in the socialist ‘paradise’ of Cuba, the Stones arrive on scene and play a massive open-air concert in Havana.  There is a superb concert film of this show which everyone should see.
  73. 2017 Sunday: In the great ‘free democracy of Russia,’ anti-corruption protests around the country lead to the arrest of hundreds along with opposition leader Alexei Navalny.  Meanwhile, the people of Chile take to the streets in protests over the nation’s privatized pension system.   Meanwhile, in Cincinnati, Ohio, at the Cameo Nightclub, a scumbag with a gun shoots one person dead and wounds 16 others before the cops could arrive on scene.  They would be pounding the pavement seeking the multiple shooters.
  74. 2018 Monday: The United States, the Ukraine, and the European Union expel more than 100 Russian diplomats over the use of nerve agents to assassinate former Russian intel agent and his daughter in a public park.  Did it do any good?  NO, Putin is still the same pig he always has been.  Meanwhile, U.S. auto manufacturer Ford and Chinese e-commerce giant, Alibaba, unveil a new car-vending machine in the Chinese city of Guangzhou which rids the process of car-buying of salespeople.  Meanwhile, porn queen Stormy Daniels alleges in an interview on 60 Minutes with her attorney, Michael Avenatti, at her side that she had an affair with Donald J. Trump and that Trump’s ‘people’ (lawyer Michael Cohen) threatened the pitiful thing to be quiet.  This was later disproven, and the actress is paying Trump money she owes him via a lawsuit while Avenatti is going to federal prison.  Finally, a U.S. Army soldier receives the first transplant of a penis and scrotum at John Hopkins University in Maryland.
  75. 2019 Tuesday: For now, charges of facing a FAKE HATE CRIME against Empire actor Jussie Smollett are dropped only to be reinstated months later when the prosecutor is shown to be compromised.   Meanwhile, the first known transplant of a kidney from a live HIV donor and an HIV recipient occurs at a university in Boston, Massachusetts.   Elsewhere, BIG PHARMA giant Purdue Pharma reaches a settlement with the state of Oklahoma in the lawsuit regarding the opioid epidemic and its part in it: they agree to pay a settlement of $270 million.

  77. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Those of us who sat mouths agape yesterday watching Joe Biden stumble through his first press conference in 65 days were even more shocked today when what everyone knew to be true was proven true by photos.  The discombobulated Biden was using a binder full of cheat sheets and crib notes and his list of reporters featured their names and photos of their faces and still he f**ked up calling them by the wrong names.  Most Americans are appalled enough already knowing that this fuddled old fool STOLE the 2020 Presidential Election but are even more so now that a majority of Americans realize we have a vegetable in the White House.  WTF is happening to our country.  Next, the White House says that Joe Biden is going to beef up gun control measures by scrawling his chicken scratch on more executive orders.  F**k you, Joe, NO one is taking our guns.
  78. 2021 Friday A: “RACIST! NEWS”/WHAT’S RACIST TODAY– Oakland, California Mayor and crackpot political hack Libby Schaaf backs an income supplement program that will help disadvantaged black folks but won’t help equally disadvantaged white folks living in that corrupt East Bay city.  Wow.  Next, a Minnesota-based dinner theater scraps a presentation of “Cinderella” because the cast was ‘too white.’   Meanwhile, black leaders zero in on Democrat holdouts in the U.S. Senate who do not want to toss the filibuster onto the heap.  Thus, they are going to accuse them of being racists 24/7/365 with the Reverend Al Sharpton at the head of the pack of accusers.[xi]  What a bunch of crap.   Elsewhere, the top editor at the Journal of the American Medical Association, aka JAMA- Howard Bauchner- found himself sidelined over a tweet and podcast he made in which he said: “No physician is racist, so how can there be structural racism in health care?”  Not good, Dr. B., black doctors became angry and out you go.  Get with it man!
  79. 2021 Friday B: LIBERAL STUPIDITY– Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascon- a George Soros appointee- is not going to try 20-year-old murderous thug Jalen Yoakum as an adult.  This means the POS will be back on the streets in five years.  When is L.A. County going to remove this worthless scumbag?  Meanwhile, the state of Oregon is going to go after concealed carry permits via a new direction by creating a patchwork of gun-free zones all over the place making it difficult for gun owners to carry their lawfully-owned firearms and avoid felonies.  Thugs, of course, will still be packing.  No wonder eastern Oregon wants to break off from the lunatics in the western portion.   Elsewhere, Dems in the Peach State are going berserk over Governor Brian Kemp signing the new voting rights bill.  Massachusetts phony Native American Senator Lizzie “Borden” Warren tweeted that ‘the man sitting in Stacey Abrams chair (good one, Lizzie, good one) is taking the state back to JIM CROW!”[xii]  In fact, a state black lawmaker, Park Cannon, was arrested for banging on the governor’s door after the cops told her to stop knocking.  Stupid skank.[xiii]   Finally, the White House says, ‘Joe Biden’ is worried about the Georgia voting rights law.[xiv]
  80. 2021 Friday C: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Burgess Owens, R-UT 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden owes border officials a big apology for creating the massive tsunami surge of illegal aliens flooding across our border.’  Meanwhile, as GOP lawmakers visit the overwhelmed southern border, Senator Mike Lee, R-OR, said that across the Rio Grande River, smugglers, gangbangers, and cartel trash were taunting them.[xv]  Elsewhere, the GOP is demanding that the news media be allowed to film along the southern border so the nation can see what the heck is going on down there with illegal aliens as thick as cockroaches in a Tijuana backstreet whore house rushing across it.  Time to do some pest control, folks.  Finally, it would appear that every sitting GOP U.S. senator is down at the border today blasting the inept Joe Biden administration.
  81. 2021 Friday D: JOE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS– thanks to Joe Biden’s incredibly stupid policies on energy production and usage, the U.S. is back to importing oil, much of which is Russian oil, and our guy has the nerve to call Putin a “Killer.”  WTF?   Meanwhile, former Ohio treasurer and candidate for Senator Rob Portman’s seat when he steps down at the end of his term said that ‘Joe Biden isn’t all there.’  Go figure.  Next, Joe Biden may invite Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping to a virtual climate summit.  Wow.  Amazing, Joe, simply amazing. 
  82. 2021 Friday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– USC reaches a settlement of $852 million following it acknowledging that a former campus gynecologist Dr. George Tyndall- charged with five counts of sexual abuse- abused hundreds of female students while employed at the University of Southern California.  The crimes allegedly occurred between 2011 and 2015.  Wow.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and rapper Killer Mike are meeting with folks in Bessemer, Alabama, the site of a big battle to unionize.  Liberal icon Amazon is doing battle with its workers seeking to unionize the plant to seek better wages and even better treatment.  Amazon will probably move the plant to Puerto Rico.  Be careful.
  83. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, signs a bill ending trannys from participating in girls and women’s sports.  Excellent.  As we have repeatedly said, IF trannys are so determined to compete in sports, it’s far easier to create a third category of sports as well as separate locker rooms.  Let them have at it and we suspect that tranny sports would have far more fans than either girls/women’s or boys/men’s sports.  It’s like roller derby, everyone loves watching the women more so than men so how about creating a third category of competitive sports, you know, for the mentally ill- oh, wait, did we just say that?  Sorry.  Elsewhere, Dominion Voting Systems, the ALLEGEDLY CORRUPT ORGANIZATION THAT STEALS ELECTIONS FOR THE HIGHEST BIDDER- is slapping Fox News Channel with a $1.6 billion lawsuit alleging FNC slandered their fine, fine company.  Sounds like deflection to us or at least so says our attorneys.
  84. 2021 Friday G: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Since Kim Jong Un and North Korea have become belligerent again what with Joe Biden talking s**t about them, elements of the 1st Armored Division are deploying to South Korea.  Next, the People’s Republic of China, aka the Chi-Coms, have slapped reciprocal sanctions onto the European Union for having slapped human rights sanctions on them.  Elsewhere, the container ship beached in the Suez Canal threatens to be there for several months blocking passage through the incredibly important waterway.  This, of course, will lead to higher energy prices as well as drive up the cost of goods around the world.  Glenn Beck raised the specter as to whether someone hacked into the controls of the ship and caused it to run aground.  We thought this was possible after two U.S. Navy ships collided with commercial freighters back in 2017.  Two guided-missile destroyers, the USS Fitzgerald and the USS John S. McCain ran into other ships back in June and August of that year for which there was no real explanation.  Could it be the Chi-Coms, the Russians, or some other nefarious unseen actor is able to cause such mishaps?  Sure, seems possible to us…
  85. 2021 Friday H: MEDICAL NEWS– Former Centers for Disease Control- the CDC- Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘COVID-19 bat flu virus did indeed escape from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.’  The question is, was it a purposeful release?  Meanwhile, Dr. Scott Atlas said to Glenn Beck today that ‘science and expertise have become compromised, politicized, and that the demand for social distancing of six-feet or more (or less) is based on pseudo-science.’  God bless you.  Next, the U.S. pulls over 95-percent of its stockpiled PPE gowns over safety issues.  Must be the crap manufactured in communist China.  Moving on, the cities of Boston, Newark, and Norfolk will become mega-vaccination sites on the East Coast.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates says ‘life will probably be back to normal by 2022.’  Bill- STFU.  Finally, the European Union is peeved with its vaccine suppliers as the demand far outpaces the production.  Are you dummies using the Russian Sputnik vaccine?  Serves you right, dimwits.
  86. 2021 Friday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– President Donald J. Trump said today that during the Antifa/Black Lives Matter FALSE FLAG OPERATION launched against Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021, lawmakers were in ‘ZERO DANGER.’  We concur, it was set up from the start.   Speaking of President Trump, he will also remain neutral in the Alabama race for the U.S. Senate seat, and, according to Jason Miller, President Trump may visit the southern border soon.  Next, Congressman Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi thinks she can remove anyone from office.’  Elsewhere, New York’s junior Senator Kirsten “Whitey” Gillibrand defends her call for Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to resign as being her personal opinion.  (The Lov Gov must have called her up and threatened her).  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi has authorized several House committees to conduct intensive investigations into rooting out the scurrilous scumbags behind the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, riots the Democrats set in motion.  She is angry NO Republicans will join her in yet another witch hunt.
  87. 2021 Friday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– U.S. Cybercommand says that recent hacks by foreign actors are a ‘clarion call’ to arms.  You go.  Meanwhile, Parler says it informed the FBI of numerous threats made on its site prior to the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is calling for an end to the lockdown on the cruise ship industry.  Cruise ships must get back to work.  NOW.  Next, “Lonesome Dove” (and other books) author Larry McMurtry is dead at the age of 84.  God bless you, Larry!  Moving on, the Michigan GOP plans to bypass a weakened Governor Gretchen “Bride of Frankenstein” Whitmer, Democratic-Socialist, and fix the voting laws in their state.  Finally, Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says ‘Congress holding BIG TECH accountable is going to be a challenge.’
  88. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 124,683,860 confirmed cases, +579,564, 2,742,357  confirmed deaths, +9,863, and 70,731,503 confirmed recoveries, +338,716 (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS!).  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,223,587 confirmed cases, up 61,840 from yesterday’s reporting, 550,726 confirmed deaths, UP 1,315, (SAME AS YESTERDAY’S NUMBERS!) and 117,827,913 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. 
  89. 2021 Friday L: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 222,259 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  90. : COVID-19 STATISTICS in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,648,021 confirmed cases (same as yesterday’s count), 57,909 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,950 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 359,290 confirmed cases, 5,249 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the third highest state after California- Florida: currently, they have 2,016,505 confirmed cases, 32,819 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 829,689 confirmed cases, 6,122 confirmed deaths, and 808,869 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Hungary, former Axis ally: 586,123 cases of the virus, 18,703 confirmed deaths and 378,176 confirmed recoveries.[xvi]  
  91. 2021 Friday N: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,072.88, UP 453.40 points (+1.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,138.73, UP 161.04 points (+1.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,974.54, UP 65.02 points (+1.66%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $60.72 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,731.60 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.11 per troy ounce, 0.00 (-0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,191.10 per troy oz, +13.20 (+1.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.08 per pound, +0.01 (+0.28%).[xvii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,677.50 per troy oz, +52.00 (+1.98%).[xviii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -900.00 (-3.09%).[xix]    Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.58.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Belize dollars, one greenback equals 2.00.[xx]  
  92. 2021 Friday O: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE 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 $3.889 per gallon, $3.635 in Hawaii, and $3.323 in Washington state.[xxi]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,097,328,683,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  93. 2021 Friday P: NASA/SCIENCE NEWS– NASA reports that the humongous asteroid named Apophis originally thought to maybe impact the Earth sometime in 2068 now won’t come near enough to the Earth to wreak havoc on the planet for at least another century.  This bad boy from the cosmos is the size of the Empire State Building and is slated to pass within 20,000 miles of the Earth on Friday, April 13, 2029.  Astronomers point out that the moon is 238,000 miles away from our planet so this substantial chunk of rock is going to pass by us at an extremely close distance which astronomers are all excited about as it will provide them ample opportunity to get some good photos of it.  Let’s hope another chunk of space debris doesn’t slam into it, deflect it, and send it crashing down on our planet (unless it decides to hit communist China, Russia, or Iran first before creating a massive extinction event the likes of which ended the reign of the dinosaurs).   Italian astronomer Claudio Maccone says the best protection against space-based threats such as asteroids is space-based missiles with which to blow them up when they are a good distance from the planet rather than immediately threatening it.
  94. 2021 Friday Q: LATE NEWS I– Beloved children’s author Beverly Cleary died at the age of 104 today.  Meanwhile, rabid, foaming at the mouth liberals are suing Georgia’s elections officials over the new voting laws someone in the White House calls the ‘new Jim Crow of the 21st century.’  Yikes.  That hurts.  Elsewhere, the FREE nation of Taiwan, aka the Republic of China or Nationalist China, reported today that 20 Chi-Com warplanes penetrated its airspace today which led to rapid scrambling of attack planes and targeted missiles which drove the communist invaders back out to sea.  Light ‘em up, Taiwan, light those SOBs up!   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, them and the Russians are drawing closer together in an effort to intimidate the United States.  What else is new?   Former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger warns that the constant ‘U.S.-China contest risks catastrophic conflict.’ 
  95. 2021 Friday R: LOTTERY NEWS– Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1645 with a jackpot of $137 million on the line.  Get your tickets purchased by 7:45 P.M. tonight.  Here are the results: 04, 25, 37, 46, 67, and Mega 15.  Out of 69,400 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,502.
  96. 2022 Saturday: Thank God, it’s Saturday.  We hope things remain peaceful…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Robbie Robertson’s next solo album came out on March 10, 1998, and is somewhat unique among his growing discography of music.  The famed guitarist of the Band jumped into a celebrated effort in which, he tried to bring the music of the First Peoples of Canada, aka aboriginals, to a wider audience, sort of what Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones did when he presented his ground-breaking effort, “Pipes of Pan at Joujouka,” an album that came out in 1971.  In that effort, Jones presented the whirling music of North African flute players and drummers whereas here, Robertson brings together large numbers of musicians to play his visionary intermingling of native rhythms with modern musical forms.  We hope you will seek this one out, consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure, and then sharing it with others.  We think they will be as appreciative of it as will you.  Enjoy.

[i] We look forward to doing our favorite classical composers one day.  Hopefully within the next 30 years.

[ii] See “The Soviet Juggernaut” by Earl F. Ziemke and the Editors of Time-Life Books (1980).

[iii] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

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

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of Boston but when we do, we will alert the readership.  Stay tuned for further developments.

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

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

[viii] 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.”

[ix] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[x] 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.

[xi] The Reverend Al never misses out on an opportunity to label people RACISTS.

[xii] She should KNOW about Jim Crow.  Democrats were- and still are, for that matter- the party of Jim Crow as well as the party of separate but equal, the KKK, slavery, race hatred, segregation, red-lining, white flight, burning crosses, police dogs, fire hoses, beatings, plantation prisons, and the Civil War.  Dems love braying about “JIM CROW, JIM CROW” as it is the new watchword of the day, everything anyone opposing them does is taking us back to “Jim Crow.”  Lizzie- STFU you lying, phony, hypocritical, crazy f**king bitch!  Enough is enough!

[xiii] This moronic little chub probably thinks, “Boy, I sure showed them!”  We’re sure she believes Governor Kemp is also a racist bigot.  Enough already.

[xiv] Why?  Can’t Joe just undo everything with yet another executive order and can’t the Democrats coerce RINO Governor Brian Kemp into signing another consent decree in 2022 that will permit overweight Stacey Abrams to steal the elections as she did in 2020?  What the hell is the big deal?

[xv] This is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups from Florida, Mississippi, and Alabama as well as laying in minefields, antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat impediments, putting down spikes on our side of the river IN the river at the border line, putting in military emplacements, troops, razor wire augmenting the wall, and completing the wall.  Hell, put in foo gas pits and whatever else we need to stop the invasion.  BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL!

  52. 2003 Thursday: The United States, Great Britain, Australia, and Poland invade Iraq sans United Nations sanctions.  Airstrikes have already been crisscrossing the country and it appears that the Iraqis are unprepared to contend with this assault.  Little did the Coalition troops know that Saddam Hussein had a plan, a good plan.  Government forces disappear into the shadows and an insurrection fueled by religious extremism will blossom in it’s place.  That won’t happen for several months however…
  53. 2004 Saturday:  In Taiwan, despite being shot in the stomach by an unknown assailant, President Chen Shui-bian wins another term as president.  The results are close, so his opponent decries the election as ‘unfair’, but the results hold firm.   Meanwhile, in the United States, millions of people in this country and across the world take to the streets protesting the first anniversary of the war in Iraq.  It started out well and everyone in Congress- including the Democrats- were onboard but as soon as it went south, everyone was all over President George W.

  57. 2008 Thursday: The communist Chinese are having a hell of time trying to quell the rising unrest in Tibet.  Well, go figure- the Chi-Coms are interlopers and Tibet is NOT their country; yet they claim it, persecute their people, and are searching for the Dalai Lama as though he is a common criminal.   The Dalai Lama offers to meet with the Chi-Coms but in response they load up hundreds of military vehicles loaded with soldiers to crush the INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT.

Udall died at age 90.  A Democrat, Secretary Udall served under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson from January 21, 1961, to January 20, 1969.
  60. 2011 Sunday: The Arab Spring continues: the people of Morocco turn out in the thousands to demand an end to corruption and civil rights for all citizens.  Bahrain is experiencing problems as is Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Libya.  Arabs across the Middle East are hopping mad with their governments and their governments are taken by surprise.  It will lead to a complete restructuring of much of the Middle East.   
  61. 2012 Tuesday: Violence continues to rage across Iraq with 50 people killed and another 240 plus injured as terrorists conduct suicide bombings, shootings, kidnappings, and other violence.  At least 10 cities are experiencing a wave of violence.  Elsewhere, Pope Benedict XVI appoints three new bishops for the United States- one in Baltimore, Maryland, the second in Tallahassee-Pensacola, Florida, and the third in Cheap Trick’s[vi] home, Rockford, Illinois.
  62. 2013 Wednesday: Zillur Rahman, age 84, the president of Bangladesh, dies in office after a prolonged illness at a hospital in Singapore; the government declared three days of mourning.  Meanwhile, following the U.S. State Department’s comments on next month’s Venezuelan elections, Caracas cuts off a back-channel line of communications with Washington, D.C.  The Venezuelans would NEVER dream of holding corrupt or crooked elections not with Smartmatic Software and allegedly Dominion Voting Systems machines, allegedly.
  63. 2014 Thursday: Rising Asian demand for Champagne will represent increasing export growth, with Japan currently the fourth-largest export market after the U.K., the U.S. and Germany.   Meanwhile, the world is growing increasingly upset with the Russian occupation and annexation of the Crimea but there is nothing anyone will do to stop Vladimir Putin’s road to conquest.  Next, and even more perplexing, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, orders an investigation into HOW and even more important WHY the CIA ‘breached’ the U.S. Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence’s computers.[vii]  
  64. 2015 Friday: The creator of “Berry’s World,” cartoonist Jim Berry, dies at age 83.  Meanwhile, former Liberal Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Fraser (served 1975-83) dies at age 84.  Elsewhere, ISIS releases video of the executions of three Kurdish peshmerga soldiers and announces with glee that ‘there are going to be more from where those came.’  Savage sons of bitches, we need to radiate all of them.   Meanwhile, in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., former drummer Anthony “A.J.” Pero of Twisted Sister died at age 55.
  65. 2016 Sunday: President Barack Hussein Obama and his family arrive in Cuba for a three-day visit.  He was the first U.S. president to visit the island nation since 1928.  His visit, however, was the first by any American president since the island went communist in the 1950s so thank you, Mr. Obama, for being such a pro-Castro POS.
  66. 2017 Monday: The American psychotherapist who coined the term ‘homophobia’ dies at the age of 87.  We do not know if Dr. George Weinberg was himself a homosexual but he’s the one who crafted the term.  Meanwhile, confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia commence today.  Of course, liberals are hopping mad over the fact that their guy, Merrick Garland, never had a hearing but it is what it is.  Elsewhere, fired FBI Director James Comey is going to testify before the House Intelligence Committee today.
  67. 2018 Tuesday: Actress Cynthia Nixon from “Sex in the City” announces she will run for New York governor.  She would go down in flames to the dimwit Andrew Cuomo.  Meanwhile, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House.  Elsewhere, after allegations of rape and other sex crimes continue hammering Harvey Weinstein- close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton- the Weinstein Company files for Chapter 11 protections.
  68. 2019 Wednesday: According to the World Happiness Report, Finland is the happiest country on planet Earth while the South Sudan is the least-happiest nation.  Meanwhile, South Korean authorities arrest four scumbags for secretly filming at least 1,600 hotel guests doing the nasty and selling the footage to online Websites. Elsewhere, Disney forks out $71.3 billion to buy 21st Century Fox and all its individual parts.  Next, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras issues a ruling that HALTS oil and natural gas drilling in Wyoming.  The reason: climate change.   
  69. 2020 Friday: The Chinese Virus is sweeping across the world.  At first, health authorities- especially in the United States and Europe- were very dismissive of the Wuhan Flu whereas now, businesses are closing and a two-week mandatory order in the U.S. is enacted.  “Two weeks to flatten the curve and then life can return to normal” is the mantra.  People like the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci told us early on that masks were not important whereas now, everyone must wear them if they wish to journey out to the doctor or to big box stores.  Toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex and napkins have become a thing of the past.  The shelves of stores are being stripped clean with only foodstuffs people don’t like clinging to the shelves.
  70. 2021 Saturday: BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS- the latest report that began hitting the news late yesterday evening is that the Biden administration is seeking air transport to begin moving the tsunami of illegal aliens crossing the southern border to the northern border so CBP officials can begin processing them there.[viii]  The northern border has been quiet since the arrival of COVID-19 caused all operations to be suspended so now, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ brainy new idea is let’s load all the illegal aliens aboard aircraft, move them to the border with Canada, and deal with them there.  Secretary Mayorkas, how about this: HOW about loading them aboard transport aircraft and send them back to whence they f**king came?  Enough is enough already.  Meanwhile, dingbat House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi claims ‘Joe has the border mega-disaster under control.’  Awesome.  We may need to reevaluate our views on the Chi-Coms.  At least they would NEVER prevent suicidal stupidity such as what the Biden administration is afflicting onto the people of our country.
  71. 2021 Saturday A: BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS II- Governor Greg Abbot, R-TX, is demanding state authorities inspect the illegal alien holding pens at least out of public health and humanitarian desires.  Illegals are crammed into shipping containers, into the backs of trucks (300 found in the back of a Mexican truck), fresh water, decent food, showers, and other hygiene provisions as well as COVID-19 checks are sadly lacking, and the frigging Democrats had the never to criticize the Trump administration for how it ‘treated’ its illegals.  The Trump administration cared for them and even better, made it extremely difficult to come here so millions of Third World illegal aliens did not all begin marching north.  The Biden administration must deal with this, or we will discover YOU did steal the election on November 3, 2020, and boot this criminal regime out of office.  (Speaking of te stolen election, the Arizona Senate has ordered the hand recount of 1.3 million ballots from the election out of fear that MASS FRAUD was committed by the Democrats).   Meanwhile, Congressman Clay Higgins, R-LA 3rd congressional district, the ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Border Issues is seeking an audience with Joe Biden.  The crisis must be stopped (or the American people, we suspect, will step up and fix the problem themselves).
  72. 2021 Saturday B: JOE BIDEN NEWS- Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-Fl 1st congressional district, tells news people that Joe Biden is the image of ‘weakness,’ especially after falling on the stairs of Air Force One three times yesterday (maybe Vice President Kamala Harris slathered some lube on those steps?).  Congressman Gaetz, we will raise it one step higher: Joe Biden is the posterchild of ‘weakness,’ he’s the milk carton image of weakness, this aging image of senility is putting our country in danger.   Wake up, America, before it’s too late.   Meanwhile, Franklin Graham slams Joe Biden for ‘offending Putin’ as well as for backing ‘abortion at all stages.’  We suspect the reverend is not happy with Biden angering yet another one of our opponents, Vladimir Putin, as all we need is everyone ganging up on us at one time.  Next, Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is handing the border over to the drug cartels.’  Finally, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says that the ‘communist Chinese think they can roll Joe Biden.’  Of course, they can.  
  73. 2021 Saturday C: DEMOCRAT PARTY NEWS- brand-new HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge is already in trouble.  For being on U.S. government property- we believe the White House press room, she was electioneering as to who she believed should run against outgoing Senator Rob Portman, R-Ohio.  Secretary Fudge says that either Dayton, Ohio, Mayor Nan Whaley or fellow Democrat Congressman Tim Ryan, D-OH 13th congressional district (and failed presidential candidate), would make great senators.  In an effort to deflect from the secretary’s woes, Democrats are trying to save everyone in the Trump administration was electioneering all the time.  Bulls**t.
  74. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS- several of the justices have come to the court to meet in person ahead of oral arguments next week.  This is the first time since the arrival of COVID-19 that justices are meeting in person. 
  75. 2021 Saturday E:  REPUBLICAN PARTY NEWS- GOP lawmakers in the state of Georgia are working on new legislation that will prevent large nonprofit organizations from interfering in Peach State elections.  Apparently, there are no restrictions on how much money these nongovernmental entities can throw into campaigns, campaigns they seek to alter so the outcomes are favorable to them.  Most of these organizations like Stacey Abrams are hardcore leftist groups.  We bid them good luck in stopping this interference.   Elsewhere, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district says that the ‘Dems radical agenda is on full display what with wide open borders and the House Democrats trying to steal the certified election of Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd
