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

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

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

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

  76. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.202 per gallon, $2.861 in Florida, $3.928 in Hawaii, and $3.577 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Connecticut: $3.070.  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- Trinidad and Tobago: $3.214 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,355,756,332,048 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  77. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #71 for “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be ‘Border Czar,’ a ‘no-show job’ for which, she receives a paycheck.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ a new report says that when the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece told him to appoint her to head this prestigious, national security job, her aides were in a state of panic not knowing what any of them were to do.  A bunch of flipping hacks.[xvi]  Anyhow, “Methuselah Joe” Biden is pushing Congress to get him a bill on his desk that he can sign that will LEGALIZE 11 million illegal aliens.[xvii]
  78. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is in Israel with two other U.S. senators and is pushing for $1 billion U.S. dollars with which to beef up Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.  Amen.   Elsewhere, Chi-Com state media says the nation MUST prepare for nuclear war with the United States after a mumbling, stumbling, bumbling Joe Biden orders an investigation into the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Wow.  Chi-Coms want war.  Meanwhile, NATO warplanes took to the airspace over member nations as a show of force to Vladimir Putin’s increasingly hostile Russia.
  79. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– It has been decided that COVID-19 variants will be given Greek letters rather than the name of the country in which they pop up.  Guess we don’t want to hurt the feelings of places like the People’s Republic of China, South Africa, Vietnam, and India.  Folks, it is what it is.  Next, a recent poll says that 60-percent of the American people oppose Chi-Vi passports for dining and that 55-percent oppose employers demanding proof of Bat Flu vaccinations.  We concur.   A recent TIPP poll reports that 55-percent of Americans believe the release of the ‘VID was NO accident while 44-percent believe that the Chi-Coms did indeed create this crap in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Elsewhere, Gordon Chang told Newsmax TV that ‘Joe Biden could conceal U.S. complicity in the origins of the Chi-Vi and subsequent spread when HIS report on the pandemic comes out.’  Finally, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, wants House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to launch an investigation into the Chinese Communist Party and the origins of the Wuhan Virus Crisis.
  80. 2021 Tuesday I: Health and Medical Alerts– Regarding the previous topic, the New York Knicks say that IF they advance in the playoffs, fans in the stands will HAVE TO PROVIDE evidence of vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Wow.  NO fans in the stands means NO money for your crappy team.  In other news- and this is BIG- the Chi-Coms have reported their FIRST human case of the H1ON3 bird flu.  Let’s see, this will be the NEW pandemic following hot on the heels of the Kung Flu which means- it will be running amok around the world by the time Americans go to vote in November 2022- and you believe the Chi-Coms are not malevolently evil.  (Note- the U.S. government says that from highest to lowest in rates of Chi-Com Meat Market Malady vaccinations, Asians come in first followed by whites followed by Hispanics and then blacks.  As Chef Bea O’Malley has said, ‘anytime white liberals tell us black folks to do something for our own good, we run like heck for the hills’).
  81. 2021 Tuesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– Fellow Democrats and critics worry that the Biden regime WON’T release President Donald J. Trump’s tax information when the ‘investigation into the 45th president concludes.’  Next, the Biden regime is suspending oil and natural gas leases in the Arctic Wildlife Preserve, leases created under President Donald J. Trump.   Elsewhere, in other disturbing news, the U.S. Pentagon has cleared the Chi-Coms’ largest drone manufacturer for use by, uh, U.S. forces?  WTF?
  82. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News I– The ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ fails to pass in the U.S. Senate.  Part of the bill setting up this so-called ‘commission’ labels everyone who was in Washington, D.C., that day as insurrectionists.[xviii]  Wow.  Next, left-wing losers are claiming the General Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., called for a ‘coup’ against the U.S. government, an accusation he says is ‘bulls**t.’  Amen.  In other Political News, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, appears in an RNC advertisement slamming the policies of decrepit old Joe Biden.   Elsewhere, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says, “Not here, not now” with the defense of the Girls’ Sports Fairness Law which prohibits trannys,  i.e., chicks with dicks from corrupting girls’ and women’s sports teams.  Transgender-lovers are suing the Sunshine State to overturn this excellent law.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump endorses Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, for another term.
  83. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News II– Joe Biden went to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to pander to black folks on the 100-year anniversary of the Tulsa Race Riots and Massacre.  Joe claimed in 100 years that ‘no American president has ever come to Tulsa to commemorate this horrible time.’  Well, last year, President Donald J. Trump visited the city around the time of the 99th anniversary of the detestable event which sent the liberals berserk.  Former Executive Director Harrison Floyd for the Trump campaign’s outreach to black Americans pointed this fact out.  Of course, liberals won’t believe this.  Back to Joe Biden, when questioned as to whether survivors of the massacre should get some sort of reparations for what they suffered, Biden zipped his lips.  NO comment.  Finally, a bitter fight looms over the filibuster.
  84. 2021 Tuesday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– In a Montana dispute, the U.S. Supreme Court backs Native American tribal law in the state.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch rejected challenges to a Colorado disaster law used by state government to ban churches from being open.  Oh, well.  In other SCOTUS news, major rulings await over the last month of the current term.  We shall see.
  85. 2021 Tuesday N: Business News– Following the pullout of the Major League All-Star Game from Atlanta, Georgia, a conservative business group- Job Creators Network- is suing the league and the players’ union to prevent Colorado from hosting the annual game.  Elsewhere, Amazon.com is allowing the sale of EVIL Blue Lives Murder apparel which is reason enough to return to shopping locally.   Meanwhile, Americans’ travel spree reaffirms that it’s right for the markets to be BULLISH on oil and not on renewables.  Next, personal incomes tumbled by 13.1-percent in April 2021, the highest loss in more than two decades.  Who’s to blame, you ask?  Joe “Flipping” Biden and his corrupt policies of self-enrichment and corruption.  INFLATION!
  86. 2021 Tuesday O: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Former Officer Derek Chauvin of the Minneapolis Police Department is now facing federal charges.  It would appear that due to all sorts of shenanigans by activists who made it onto his jury that he might receive a NEW trial.  Thus, the feds want to put him in double jeopardy by charging him with civil rights violations.  My, my, my.  In other news, the July 2021 deadline for survivors of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, by Muslim jihadists to get help is fast approaching.  Elsewhere, two people were shot at a Los Angeles County firehouse by a fellow firefighter.  Details hopefully to come.
  87. 2021 Tuesday P: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– In yet another, near-daily disclosure that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom knows he is a goner, he has ordered state officials to create a TASK FORCE to look into the matter of providing reparations to the descendants of former slaves.  As everyone knows, California was on the side of the Union during the Civil War and slavery was not permitted in the Golden State.  Governor “Nazi” Newsom—you are going down, you worthless, conniving, closet homo loser come November 2021.  Going to be amazing to see you take the boot up your scrawny little ass.   In other news, former President Barack Hussein Obama admitted to the New York Times that with feeble old Joe Biden hiring his staff, he is the one calling the shots.  Finally- and we don’t believe this story- Arizona says it plans to use Zyklon-B gas with which to execute death row inmates.  Say, wasn’t this the exact same gas employed by the Nazis in the death camps?  Hence why we think this is a bogus story.
  88. 2021 Tuesday Q: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– A BIG ROUND of applause for New York State Attorney General Leticia James- Josef Stalin and Lavrentiy Beria would be extremely proud of this communist POS who has launched a criminal probe into the Trump Organization.  “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” said KGB thug Lavrentiy Beria.  What a banana republic-style circus.   We hope you go deep in the running for this year’s award…
  89. 2021 Tuesday R: Religion News– Pope Francis criminalizes sexual abuse of adults by priests.  Seems like this SHOULD ALWAYS have been a crime.
  90. 2021 Tuesday S: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Space debris slammed into the International Space Station and damaged its robotic arm.  (Note- seems like it would be great if we could re-establish the space shuttle program and outfit one of them with massive nets that could begin scooping up all this crap and then either returning it to Earth for destruction or dropping it onto the moon for safekeeping).
  91. 2021 Tuesday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1664 with a $34 million jackpot on the line: 07, 11, 33, 58, 63, and Mega 23.  Out of 47,494 winning tickets, the highest numbers were 39 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $377 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday U: Special Election News– Melanie Stansbury won the New Mexico Special Election to fill the seat of now-Interior Secretary Debra Haaland.  She will represent New Mexico’s 1st congressional district until November of next year, thus preserving “Mumbles” Pelosi’s margin of 219-211.  Democrats are now out there creaming their panties believing this to be a bellwether of the upcoming 2022 Mid-Term Elections.
  93. 2022 Wednesday: Stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms and their stooge in the White House are up to today- should be good.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys marked a distinct move into much more social consciousness that began on the preceding album.  The Beach Boys were touring college and university campuses, were all about conservation, the grandfather of today’s loony tunes ‘green movement.’  Beards were getting longer, hair well past the collars and what with the departure of Bruce Johnston- asked to leave because he would not grow a beard, embrace Transcendental Meditation- the band brought into South African musicians, BLACK MUSICIANS to complete the social consciousness move.  Thus, we have a new album, “Carl and the Passions- So Tough,” an album that came out on May 15, 1972.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals- Dennis was having hand problems due to a major cut that prevented him from pounding the skins).  The album opens with the rocker, “You Need a Mess of Help to Stand Alone,” sung by Brian and Carl.  Next, “Here She Comes” sung by Ricky Fataar followed by “He Come Down” sung by Carl and Al followed by “Marcella,” sung by Carl and a damned good live tune.  Side two picks up with “Hold on Dear Brother” sung by Fataar.  Following that, we have “Make It Good” sung by Dennis and then, the lovely “All This Is That” sung by Al and Carl to the final tune, the strange, “Cuddle Up,” sung by Dennis.  Fans will note the distinct changes to the voice of Dennis which was becoming affected by tobacco and alcohol.  This is a great album- one we hope everyone will check out.  Back when it came out, the record company paired it with a reissue of “Pet Sounds,” back when vinyl was king.  You can still find it at select online sellers of fine music.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band” album appeared on Tuesday, 22-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[xvii] Note- when the voting audits are complete and the fraud a proven fact, every single act, appointment, and directive from the fraudulent Biden White House will be null and void.  Can you imagine when ICE and CBP are turned loose and begin rounding up and deporting the millions of illegal aliens roaming the American countryside?  Perhaps they will deputize millions of Americans to aid the Border Patrol in rounding up and loading aboard buses, trains, airplanes, and even onto freighters and sending this human flotsam and jetsam back to their rathole countries?  Going to be amazing.

[xviii] U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian leader of the Democratic-Socialist Party has ruled out Joe Biden creating her much-beloved January 06, 2021 ‘commission,’ the one by which the Dems can blame Trump supporters for the FALSE FLAG operations of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

Hell, everyone in North Korea is a slave.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Following “Sunflower,” the next Beach Boys album is “Surf’s Up,” an album that came out on August 30, 1971.  This is a phenomenal record, one that features every band member contributing lead vocals with the exception of Dennis.  The album features the same lineup as the preceding one: Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  The album is excellent all the way through with the exception of one peculiar track which we will get to.  The album opens with “Don’t Go Near the Water” sung by Mike, Al, and Brian followed by one of Carl Wilson’s all-time greatest, “Long Promised Road,” followed by “Take a Load off Your Feet” sung by Brian and Al followed by one of Bruce Johnston’s best, “Disney Girls 1957.”  Closing side one out is a remake of an old Lieber and Stoller song, “Riot in Cell Block Number 9” only done as “Student Demonstration Time” sung by Mike Love.  Side two opens with another Carl Wilson classic, “Feel Flows” followed by “Lookin’ at Tomorrow (A Welfare Song)” sung by Al followed by the extremely strange “A Day in the Life of a Tree” sung by two of Brian’s lyricists and Al.  Take this one for what you will.  The final two songs, “Til’ I Die” sung by Carl, Brian, and Mike is absolutely stunning followed by the final cut, one from Brian’s ‘Smile’ project, “Surf’s Up,” sung by Carl, Brian, and Al.  Absolutely amazing from start almost to the finish which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and to make it a part of your daily listening rotation.   You will be glad you did.

  59. 2020 Saturday A: Protests continue around the nation over the death of George Floyd this past Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The night before, extremely violent protests left many cities little more than moonscapes with stores burnt down, the husks of cars littering the streets.  As day progressed, more and more protesters and rioters returned to the streets and began going at it again.  There can be NO question that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party via funding and resources because the level of coordination for the conflagrations around the country is beyond most liberal losers to pull off on their own.  We believe that President Trump must rebuff Beijing every day and tell them, “YOU aren’t getting away with this!”  Free Hong Kong!  Free Taiwan!  Free Macau!  Free Tibet!  Now, for the Wuhan Bat Flu statistics.  Here we go:
  60. 2020 Saturday B: The Chinese Virus continues flowing around the world but with the protests raging in the streets of America, no one seems much concerned.  Many aren’t wearing masks.  Here are the global stats for today: 6,054,187 confirmed cases, 368,711 confirmed deaths, but 2,562,191 confirmed recoveries which far outpaces the number of deaths.  Excellent.  Here are the stats for the United States: 1,805,745 confirmed cases, 105,159 confirmed deaths, but 390,404 confirmed recoveries which would be much higher if Blue State governors were honest and would share those numbers.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 108,878 confirmed cases, 4,060 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION yet again of confirmed recoveries.  Governor Gavin Newsom, get with it and share those numbers, you worthless POS.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 604 confirmed recoveries which is extremely good.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 21,288 confirmed cases, 1,118 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Gov. Jay Inslee plays the same brand of deceptive liberal politics and won’t share honest statistics.  Shame on him!  Shame on Gov. Newsom!  Recall BOTH of them.
  61. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 171,006,181 confirmed cases, +388,054, 3,556,019  confirmed deaths, +7,837 and 153,278,160 confirmed recoveries, +52,339.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,042,922 confirmed cases, UP 7,604 from yesterday’s reporting, 609,544 confirmed deaths, UP 124,[vi] and 27,840,817 confirmed recoveries, UP 21,856.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vii]  
  62. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 291,598 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 168,011 deaths  
  63. 2021 Sunday 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: 3,789,318 confirmed cases, 63,245 confirmed deaths, and 2,054,021 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,320,818 confirmed cases, 36,774 confirmed deaths, and 1,943,113 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,246 confirmed cases, 500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 437,952 confirmed cases, 5,829 confirmed deaths, and 212,777 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Indiana: they have 743,696 confirmed cases, 13,620 confirmed deaths, and 710,986 confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  64. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,458 confirmed cases, 6,411 confirmed deaths, and 832,693 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- El Salvador, home of MS-13: 73,246 cases of the virus, 2,245 confirmed deaths and 68,408 confirmed recoveries.[ix]     
  65. 2021 Sunday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,529.45, UP 64.81 points (+0.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,748.74, UP 12.46 points (+0.091%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,204.11, UP 3.23 points (+0.077%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.63 per barrel, +0.31 (+0.47%).  The price of GOLD is $1,903.70 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $28.07 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.18%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,184.40 per troy oz, +2.00 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.67 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,822.33 per troy oz, +17.19 (+0.61%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $24,750.00 per troy oz., +2000.00 (+8.79%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Central African CFA Franc, one greenback equals 532.21 and in Chilean Peso, a buck equals 724.05 and in Colombian Peso, one dollar equals 3,705.75 of theirs.[xiii]      
  66. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.197 per gallon, $2.866 in Florida, $3.926 in Hawaii, and $3.576 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Arizona: $3.126.  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- Sierra Leone: $3.142 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,348,229,478,276 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.
  67. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, this is Day #69 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the “Laughing Hyena,” to be in charge of the southern border and not to have visited it.  Her ‘vice presidential’ salary is being well-spent as you can see.
  68. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– It looks like the Israelis are going to do to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu what the British people did to Prime Minister Winston Churchill at the end of World War II after he saved the UK like Netanyahu has Israel- countless time- vote him out and move on.  Netanyahu has saved Israel countless times and now that he has and the Palestinians have lit them up with more than 4,000 rockets, it appears the liberals in Israel are going to boot him and suck up to Gaza Strip and to Iran in a roundabout way,  Wow. At least Bill Maher is defending Israel unlike the rest of American liberals.  In other foreign and overseas news, news reports say that Mexican drug cartels are hunting Mexican law enforcement officers in their homes.  It sounds like Mexico- if it wants to remain a sovereign nation instead of an Afghanistan-like s**thole, they had better mobilize their military and start cleaning out this nest of vipers.
  69. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit continues even without the help of Democrats within the state who seem to be intent at keeping it under wraps rather than jumping in with both feet to demonstrate there was NO funny business.  The auditors are hand-counting 1 million ballots.  God bless them for doing what is RIGHT.  
  70. 2021 Sunday I: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In the era of ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden, last night/early this morning in Miami-Dade County in Florida, a gunman assaulted a concert, shot two dead, and wounded another 20.  In this era of gun control, amazing at how many folks are getting shot.   Meanwhile, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS, is bragging about how well gun control in the Golden State is doing a few days after the VTA train yard massacre in San Jose, California.   In another incident last night in Pittsburgh, a thug opens fire at a shopping mall but killed no one- two perps are in custody.
  71. 2021 Sunday J: Political News I– The Wisconsin state Assembly has ordered an investigation into Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life.  About time this little POS began to get his.  Next, a Michigan court rules that six recall petitions against Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer and one against Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist can move ahead.  Good.  Remove both of them from office.  Still, their supporters say they will fight the recall efforts in the courts.  Time to cut bait and go.  Moving on, as the Texas elections security bill moves forward, mumbling, stumbling old senile Joe Biden blasts the Lone Star State.  What a loser. Elsewhere, Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, says that ‘masks are no longer required in all government buildings.’
  72. 2021 Sunday K: Political News II– One America News reports a major poll regarding HOW the American people- in this case, New Yorkers- feel about the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Nearly 100-percent of the respondents believe the Chi-Vi came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology nor did they believe it a naturally-occurring virus but a lab-engineered one cooked up by the Chi-Coms.  Some even believed it was retaliation for President Donald J. Trump putting an ass-whooping on them over trade.  (Note- we have said that the virus was ‘too convenient’ as for the Chi-Coms, it allowed them to clamp down on Hong Kong as well as to put their stooge Joe Biden into the White House.  They are going to pay for this BIG TIME.  Retribution is coming).   
  73. 2021 Sunday L: Political News III– Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says the ONLY one responsible for rising inflation is Joe Biden and no one else.  In other political news, Democrats are pushing ahead with H.R. 127- the Firearm Licensing and Registration Act- which requires even more background checks, 24 hours of training paid for by the gun buyer, as well as clearance by a psychiatrist who will interview NOT only the buyer but every member of the immediate family meaning any and all relatives they can reel in with their dragnet.  Even more problematic is that all this information would become PUBLIC meaning everyone would know the guns one has as well as all the background information.  (Note- good thing we all have our firearms and will only buy them out of the backs of car trunks should this crap law ever become law of the land).
  74. 2021 Sunday M: Miscellaneous News I– the United Nations has released a report stating the danger of KILLER autonomous drones flying all over the damned place.  How soon before targeted assassinations are occurring in the skies above every nation?  If the tech companies can kill people with impunity in the Third World, soon, the thugs in the Third  will be repaying the favor.   Elsewhere, former General David Petraeus says the government has a responsibility to care for U.S. service personnel sickened by the notorious burn pits.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast Guard calls off a search for 10 missing Cuban refugees who went into the water off the Florida Keys.  Two bodies were recovered while several others were rescued.  The Coast Guard searched 800,000 square miles of ocean.        
  75. 2022 Monday:  It’s a holiday weekend, hopefully it will be a slow news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next Beach Boys album remains one of our favorites; in fact, it is the first of several that we hold especially dear.  Today’s album, “Sunflower,” came out on August 31, 1970, and although critics once again were extremely unkind and sales were crappy, it is an extraordinary album from start to finish.  The lineup on “Sunflower” features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Beginning with “Slip on Through,” sung by Dennis, the absolutely beautiful, “This Whole World” sung by Carl followed by “Add Some Music to Your Day” sung by all the band members to “Got to Know the Woman” (another Dennis rocker) to “Deidre” by Bruce Johnston to “It’s About Time,” a rocker sung by Carl and Mike.  Side two starts off with another Bruce Johnston classic, “Tears in the Morning” followed by the hauntingly beautiful, “All I Wanna Do” (Mike Love).  Next, “Forever,” a lovely Dennis love song followed by “Our Sweet Love,” a heart-warming Carl Wilson love song to “At My Window” (Bruce and Brian) to the closer, “Cool, Cool Water” sung by Brian and Mike.  Folks, this is one of the best albums by the Beach Boys and the first of several that are absolutely stunning.  We hope you seek it out and make it part of your nonstop growing collection.  Enjoy.

[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[v] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

149. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, MAY 29, 2022

2013 Wednesday: Shuanghui, a Chinese meat processing company, buys Smithfield Foods for $4.72 billion; Smithfield was the world’s largest meat processing company. (Boy, the United States is truly f**ked, is it not? How has it come to pass that Chi-Coms are buying up American food processing companies? Are we putting our ‘national security’ into their conniving hands?)

  51. 2011 Sunday: In Dallas, Texas, former U.S. Secretary of Defense- Acting- Bill Clements died.  A Republican, he served under President Richard M.

  53. 2013 Wednesday: Shuanghui, a Chinese meat processing company, buys Smithfield Foods for $4.72 billion; Smithfield was the world’s largest meat processing company.  (Boy, the United States is truly fucked, is it not?  How has it come to pass that Chi-Coms are buying up American food processing companies?  Are we putting our ‘national security’ into their conniving hands?)
  54. 2014 Thursday: Early election tallies show that Abdel Fattah el-Sisi will be the next president of Egypt; el-Sisi, the military commander who removed former president Mohamed Morsi from office due to mass protests, resigned his military position to run for president.  Elsewhere, the leaders of Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Russia sign a treaty that creates the Eurasian Economic Union.

  56. 2016 Sunday: Military assets in Niger are on the way to having a good day what with the locating of and then killing of at least 12 Boko Haram jihadists.  Keep up the decent work.  However, in Nigeria, a bombing attack kills at least four civilians and one trooper in the town of Biu.  Leave ‘em for the crows, boys.
  57. 2017 Monday: Famed golfer Tiger Woods suffers arrest for driving under the influence in Jupiter, Florida.   Elsewhere, Labour (communist) leader Jeremy Corbyn and Prime Minister Theresa May of the Conservative Party hold a debate.  (Note- this Corbyn guy is flaming crazy).  Meanwhile, in Caracas, Venezuela, as protesters march on the government, security thugs light them up with automatic weapons fire wounding at least 18 innocent civilians including two opposition leaders- Enrique Capriles Radonski and Carlos Paparoni.  That’s Venezuelan ‘justice’ for you.
  58. 2018 Tuesday: Roseanne Barr finds herself fired by ABC-TV, not longer after the reboot of her show, “Roseanne,” for having posted a ‘racist tweet.’  My, my.  Elsewhere, the low-life scum in Gaza begin firing hundreds of mortar rounds into Israel, the heaviest such bombardment in years.  This leads to the Israeli air force launching defensive attacks on positions held by the militants.  Exterminate this vermin and free the Palestinian people from the bondage Hamas and Hezbollah holds them.
  59. 2019 Wednesday: Disappointing to millions of crazed liberals and their RINO allies, U.S. Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III says, ‘charging President Donald J. Trump with a crime was never an option as there is no legal means with which to do so; however, the befuddled old fool says his report ‘does not exonerate the president either.’  Alas, the anti-Trump coup cooked up by President Barack Hussein Obama implodes, causing much embarrassment to the coup plotters.
  60. 2020 Friday: COVID-19 continues racking up numbers; however, with all the riots in the streets in various nations around the United States regarding the murder of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis cops, people are NOT social distancing nor are they wearing masks to protect themselves from the Chinese Virus; no, they are wearing them to protect their identities as they slander the memory of the murdered man by looting and burning down businesses, at least 130 as of this moment.  They also burned down brand-new low-income housing leaving the residents of the community out in the streets. 
  61. 2020 Friday A: Here are the global statistics for the Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka the Chinese Bat Flu: 5,885,490 confirmed cases, 363,061 confirmed deaths, and 2,468,011 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the national stats: 1,779,204 confirmed cases, 104,007 confirmed deaths, and 382,023 confirmed recoveries.  As you know, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors in three U.S. states: California, Hawaii, and Washington.  Here are the stats for the Golden State: 103,886 confirmed cases, 4,068 confirmed deaths, BUT ONCE AGAIN, NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, these are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 604 confirmed recoveries.   Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the (questionable) stats: 21,013 confirmed cases, 1,111 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION as to confirmed recoveries which informs the serious reader that it’s all about politics.
  62. 2020 Friday B: President Trump tells the World Health Organization that we will no longer be donating to this bought-and-paid-for-organization of Beijing.  Of course, liberals are screeching and wailing over this in the same way they are trying to blame President Trump for what is taking place in Minnesota and across the country regarding George Floyd.  He also puts communist China on notice that IF they continue trying to crackdown on Hong Kong during the Bat Flu Virus Crisis, they will find the United States opposing them and their authoritarian policies (FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Tibet!  FREE Macau!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Mainland China!).  Liberals are wailing over this, too.  Regarding Minnesota, the cop who had a significant role in murdering Mr. Floyd- former Officer Derek Chauvin- was taken into custody today and charged with murder.   
  63. 2020 Friday C: Not only in Minneapolis, Minnesota, riots break out across the nation, in Brooklyn, in Dallas, in Phoenix, in Atlanta, even in Bakersfield, California, home to the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Outside the White House, hostile crowds continue battling with uniformed Secret Service officers, dressed in riot gear.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich says that “IF you do not believe that the collusion between the Democratic Party and communist China does not exist, how are these well-funded, inorganic, well-coordinated riots occurring?  It is a concerted effort to make President Trump look as bad as possible and a sign that the summer of 2020 is going to resemble the summer of 1968.  Still, President Trump will win re-election and it is interesting to note that it’s Blue States and Blue Cities where rioting is occurring.  Law enforcement: your sacred duty is to protect life and property: start busting heads.
  64. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 170,624,894 confirmed cases, +471,415, 3,548,573  confirmed deaths, +10,651 and 152,754,774 confirmed recoveries, +621,019.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,035,318 confirmed cases, UP 12,661 from yesterday’s reporting, 609,421 confirmed deaths, UP 460,[iii] and 27,818,961 confirmed recoveries, UP 51,921.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[iv]  
  65. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 291,474 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 168,135 deaths

  69. 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 $4.192 per gallon, $2.868 in Florida, $3.929 in Hawaii, and $3.574 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Arkansas: $2.763.  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- Sri Lanka: $3.096 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,345,037,086,457 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  70. 2021 Saturday F: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Under Joe Biden’s new regulations, American employers can require vaccination proof as a condition of employment but- and this is the good part- illegal aliens will NEVER have to demonstrate vaccinations for anything.  Meanwhile, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that the mask mandates are ‘neo-fascism.’  Elsewhere, the Michigan legislature passes a bill prohibiting Chi-Vi fines for businesses. 
  71. 2021 Saturday G: Business News–  Job searches are up in states that have severed ties with the expanded federal unemployment benefits program.  Once that extra money vanishes, people head back to work which they are doing in droves.  Meanwhile, a judge approves a class action lawsuit against Google who- as a WOKE entity- paid their 11,000 female employees WAY LESS than their male employees.  That is that POS Sundar Pichai for you- deport this idiot and his entire family back to Punjabistan.  Elsewhere, 20 GOP-led states are booting unemployment benefits for gig workers.  Get real jobs losers.
  72. 2021 Saturday H: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden is banking on the new $3.6 trillion in taxes he is slapping- supposedly on the wealthy but which will fall on everyone save the poor and the vermin illegal aliens flooding around the country- to pay for his $6.2 trillion in new spending, money he will be borrowing from the Chi-Coms.  Meanwhile, the House and Senate GOP are blasting Joe Biden’s defense spending as wholly inadequate seeing as how we are competing against the Chi-Coms, their Russian underlings, and their Iranian stooges.  Next, in other regime news, the Bidenistas are speeding up the processing of illegal alien families via refugee resettlement.  Finally, Joe Biden’s lips are zipped on WHY he is NOT fulfilling his campaign promise regarding cancellation of $50,000 per student per loan debt.  (Note- the dumb asses that voted for dribbling Joe Biden believing he would do this got played again just as Barack Hussein Obama played the dummies.  Never going to happen, not when the usurper in the White House is going to spend $6 trillion upon trillions of earlier spending.  Better luck next time, fools).
  73. 2021 Saturday I: Political News I–  Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, boldly pointed out that the police reform bills favored by the Democrats are becoming problematic for them.  Amazing how the Dems slash police budgets and then are appalled by rising violent crime rates.  Go figure.
  74. 2021 Saturday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Big problems in Canada what with the discovery of 215 corpses at an indigenous school.  (Note- Canada always likes to act like they are a kind, loving place but when it comes to their treatment of the so-called First Peoples, they make the United States look like amateurs).  Shame on them.
  75. 2021 Saturday K: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– For some unknown reason, convicted POS murderer Scott Peterson who murdered his wife and unborn child will not be put to death.  Guess Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom must need his vote in the recall election.  Meanwhile, a 14-year-old snot is going to be tried as an adult in Florida for the murder of a classmate.

Janice McGeachin, while he was out of the state.  Apparently, McGeachin is running against her boss seeking to take him out because of his handling of the COVID-19 crisis in the state.  Governor Little NEVER ordered masks to be worn but wore one himself.  While he was out of state, McGeachin undermined him by instituting a mask mandate.  She sounds more like a Democrat to us.   McGeachin claims she tried to protect personal freedoms with her bogus mask mandate.  (Note- this woman sounds like a member of the Ben Sasse, Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Richard Burr, Bill Cassidy, and Liz Cheney class of losers.  There’s always room for more).
  8. 2021 Friday G: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information II–  Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, is continuing his investigation into the ties between the U.S. government and the Wuhan Institute of Virology, questions Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci seems to have challenging times answering truthfully.[xvi]  Meanwhile, a bill banning COVID-19 passports in the Grand Canyon State fails to pass.[xvii]   Elsewhere, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in another show he is going to lose his job in the recall election coming up later this year has enacted a COVID-19 lottery with $116 million in prizes for those who have received their vaccinations.   Next, former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says it’s important to confirm that the Wuhan Institute of Virology is indeed the source of the pandemic before the NEXT one hits.  Finally, now that the Chi-Coms hand in the virus is becoming more and more known, researchers at the Wuhan Institute of Virology claim ‘we was bit by bats!’  Bats that are 900 miles away.  Uh, okay.[xviii]
  9. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information III– The Centers for Disease Control loosens mask requirements for summer campers.  Next, the federal government says it’s ‘okay’ for employers to offer incentives to have their employees get vaccinated.   Meanwhile, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas wants Americans to have COVID-19 passports when traveling abroad but when illegals flood across the border or visitors come here, nope, no big deal.  Elsewhere, conservative luminary Victor David Hanson told Tucker Carlson that ‘nine people during the COVID-19 global pandemic made $20 billion creating and releasing the Chi-Vi vaccines.’  (Note- many of us believe that this is the reason WHY they are pushing everyone to get vaccinated all the way down to young kids which is their plan by the end of this year- EVERYONE.   Speaking of vaccinations, it was curious sight before Congress as the medical bigwigs testifying could not even put the finger on the numbers of their employees who have gotten vaccinated for the Kung Flu.  We say, “F**k them.”).
  10. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– It appears that Russian hackers are working on a new scheme targeting emails.  We await further developments.  Next, the German government officially recognizes the genocide they perpetrated in German Southwest Africa back before World War I erupted.  Known today as Namibia, Berlin is going to spend $1.2 billion on projects with which to repay their monstrous crimes.  Moving on, more than $2 billion worth of exports going to the European Union have been hammered with tariffs since Brexit became official.  Ah, it’s like being jilted, the jilted party wants to turn around and make YOU suffer. 
  11. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News II– French oil giant Total is rebranding itself as it moves towards renewable sources of energy.  My, my, my- very woke.  Elsewhere, Hungarian leader Viktor Orbán blows off accusations that his country is RACIST over not wanting to be invaded by hundreds of thousands of Muslims.  Some of us might be moving to Hungary as they seem like one of the few countries that wants to uphold its language, customs, and culture.  In other foreign and overseas news, a Hong Kong judge hands down additional time to pro-democracy leader Jimmy Lai and nine others involved with him (amazing how COVID-19 solved TWO problems for the Chi-Coms- pro-democracy in Hong Kong and Donald Trump in the U.S.).  Lai received an additional 14 months on his sentence while the other nine received an additional 18 months.  Such is justice in a Neo-Nazi hellhole of the People’s Republic of China- Sieg Heil!
  12. 2021 Friday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– President Donald J. Trump has said that ‘vast numbers of dead folks voted in 2020’ (which is no surprise to us); however, even stranger, many of them asked for absentee ballots.  Now that’s peculiar.  Meanwhile, a judge has halted the election audit in Fulton County, Georgia, after Democrats began raising holy hell about it.  Wait- if they had nothing to hide, why not encourage the audit?  Something does not add up here.  
  13. 2021 Friday L: Joe Biden News– Rep. Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is compromised by the Chi-Coms.’  Speaking of Joe Biden and his pals, the Chi-Coms, the leader of the regime says he will ‘release the Chi-Vi report in 90 days as long as there isn’t something within it that might embarrass his overlords in Beijing.’  Wow. In other disgusting news, the Daily Caller reported that Joe Biden looking at the young daughter of one of his flunkies, he said ‘she looks like she 19-years-old with her legs crossed.’  (Note- this is the sexual goober you people on the left claim is our ‘president?’  We’re so proud).
  14. 2021 Friday M: Business News– Hong Kong-based JD Logistics in its IPO is valued at $248 billion.  Next, Boeing reaches a deal with the FAA to pay $17 million over the problems its new jetliner suffered.  Elsewhere, Hyundai announces plans to slash half its lineup of vehicles to concentrate on EVs.  Boy, oh, boy. 
  15. 2021 Friday N: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– entertainer Bill Cosby won’t get early release because he refuses to attend sexual deviate classes in jail.  (Note- if the man DIDN’T do the crimes of which he went to prison, doesn’t attending those classes confirm that you did?  Catch 22 folks).   Elsewhere, the illegal alien who murdered Mollie Tibbetts back in 2018- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- was convicted of her murder today.  Justice has been served.   Meanwhile, Hunter Biden reportedly bragged about smoking crack with former D.C. mayor and famous crackhead Marion Berry. Wow.  Something of which to brag, Hunter. Second to last, California authorities are offering $300 thousand reward to find out who the hell murdered Aiden in a fit of road rage about a week ago.  Finally, noted legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the CNN lawsuit is all about misleading the ticket.  
  16. 2021 Friday O: Political News I–  Governor J.B. Pritzker, DS-IL, seeks to end a program that helps disadvantaged kids get into private schools.  Wow.  Next, in New Mexico as the race to fill the seat of now-U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland heats up, it appears that another seat might go to the Republicans.  The special election will occur on June 1, 2021.   Meanwhile, the Senate vote to create the January 06, 2021, Commission so wanted by House Democrats goes down in smoke even though the usual suspects among the RINOs voted in favor of it.[xix]   Elsewhere, the world learns that the ‘Durham Probe’ has spent $1.5 million; however, President Donald J. Trump and former Rep. Trey Gowdy wonder for what?
  17. 2021 Friday P: Political News II– Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen banned critical race theory as being discriminatory. Former Governor Bobby Jindal, R-LA, says ‘CRT is a way for the left to attack our kids in school.’ [xx] Next, a new poll says that ’73-percent of GOP voters believe that what happened on January 6, 2021, was indeed a FALSE FLAG OPERATION in which, ultra-leftists infiltrated and instigated the subsequent events.’  Hell, all one need do is to open one’s eyes and there’s the truth.  Next, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he plans to FORCE a vote in June on H.R. 1/S.R. 1, the voter theft bill.
  18. 2021 Friday Q: Political News III– House Republicans are putting forth two bills with which to confirm the origins of the Wuhan Virus.  God bless them.  Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov slapped two new judges onto the Empire State’s appellate courts.  He NEEDS friends in high places to protect him.  Speaking of New York, Pro-Life protesters won a victory that will allow them to continue protesting this abominable practice that no moral country should ever permit the way it’s permitted here.  Meanwhile, Rep. Barry Moore, R-AL 2nd congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s $6 trillion budget that it’s ‘criminal.’  He says instead of mailing checks to people’s mailboxes as ‘COVID-19 relief,’ it would make more sense to get people back to work and give them a tax holiday for as long as possible.’  Finally, since Mayor Lori “The Bigot” Lightfoot said, ‘white reporters can no longer interview her,’ some smartass has served her with a lawsuit.  Good for them.
  19. 2021 Friday R: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Noted conservative icon Todd Starnes says that a teacher in Virginia has been placed on leave for refusing to affirm that biological boys can become biological girls which they flipping can’t.  The Board of Education in Virginia placed this teacher on leave as they continue pushing this crackpot crap.  Folks, Myra Breckinridge was a flipping movie and anyone who continues pushing this crap is doing it as a way of damaging the country.  Perhaps it would be better if the jihadists did take the country over.  Rooftops in every city would be extremely busy.  Moving on, liberal MP William Amos of Canada was forced to apologize for peeing in a bottle while on a conference call with other lawmakers.
  20. 2021 Friday S: Miscellaneous News I– Florida teachers are going to receive a $1,000 bonus thanks to the DeSantis administration.  Speaking of Governor DeSantis, he says the vast majority of Floridians support the GOP.  Elsewhere, the San Francisco Teachers Union now backs Hamas and condemns Israel.   Meanwhile, Patrice Cullors, extremely wealthy co-founder of Black Lives Matter and owner of luxury homes is going to retire now that she’s ‘got hers.’  Wow.  What a bunch of losers.
  21. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News II– The United States Postal Service is raising first class postage to $0.58.  In other news, we learn that the San Jose, California, train yard shooter was facing disciplinary action for bigoted and racist behavior.  There you go and the man becomes a mass shooter. 
  22. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1663 with a $34 million jackpot on the line for some lucky soul: 10, 14, 20, 47, 70, and Mega 15.  Out of 51,417 winning tickets in California, the highest winner were two people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $6,833 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys for some unknown reason was panned when in fact, it is among our favorites of their so-called ‘early-mid stage’ recordings.  “20/20” came out on February 10, 1969, and has some of our most favorite tunes on it.  Tunes like the live favorite, “Do It Again,” “I Can Hear Music,” “Bluebirds over the Mountain,” the raunchiest Beach Boys tune ever- “All I Want to Do” (hard-rocking, too), as well as the beautiful instrumental, “The Nearest Faraway Place.”  Also on this amazing record is a lovely cover of “Cotton Fields,” as well as “Our Prayer” and “Cabinessence.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass), as well as some other musicians with which to round out the overall sound.

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[iv] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

  53. 1997 Tuesday: Russian President Boris Yeltsin signs a historic treaty with NATO.  Meanwhile, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the sexual harassment suit filed by Paula Jones could continue while the philandering President Bill Clinton was still in office, much to the chagrin of him and the anger of First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  54. 1998 Wednesday: Michael Fortier, the government’s star witness in the Oklahoma City bombing case, received a sentence of 12 years in prison after apologizing for NOT warning anyone about the deadly plot.  He walked free from prison in 2006.
  55. 1999 Thursday: The International Court in The Hague, Netherlands, indicts Slobodan Milosevic and four others for war crimes and crimes against humanity for killing Muslims in Kosovo—we say the Serbs should have killed more of them!
  56. 2005 Friday: In Islamabad, Pakistan, folks visiting a religious shrine find themselves meeting their maker sooner than they anticipated when a bomb propels 14 worshippers to the heavens sooner than any of them planned while wounding numerous others.  Elsewhere, protests begin erupting around the Middle East once word that U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq have desecrated the Holy Quran on Muslim soil no less.
  57. 2006 Saturday: A massive earthquake slams Java in Indonesia, killing at least 6,600 people and wounding countless others as well as leaving hundreds of thousands homeless.  Elsewhere, the gay pride folks once again take to the streets of Moscow, trying to get that country to enter into the 21st century but it goes awry as usual.  Mayor Yuri Luzhkov announced that ‘homosexuality is unnatural’ and banned the long-anticipated gay rights parade.  This led to the police taking to the streets, beating, and arresting people- including members of the European Parliament.  Russia does not want this and the more you push it the more violent the outcome is going to be.  Maybe things will be better next year.
  58. 2007 Sunday: Some places you can get away with stuff and in others you cannot: after the Moscow mayor- Yuri Luzhkov- just like last year banned a gay pride event and parade in his city, apparently the participants failed to get the message, Moscow police go out and beat up Russian gay rights activists and foreign dignitaries who came to celebrate a change in Russia (or so they thought).  (Note- there aren’t going to be any changes in Russia anytime soon).
  59. 2008 Tuesday: Problems are going on between the Argentine government and grain farmers.  The problems are over the prices the farmers get when they sell their grain for export and since there is no answer to this problem, the farmers announce all sales will HALT between May 28 and June 2.  Let us hope there is an end to this crisis.
  60. 2009 Wednesday: In Lahore, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ carry out another suicide bombing that delivers 35 True Believers up to Allah sooner than any of them had planned and injures at least 250 other poor souls.  WTF!   Meanwhile, in an extremely curious move, Russia agrees to supply U.S. civilian nuclear reactors with $1 billion worth of uranium.
  61. 2010 Thursday: The Israeli government calls the ambassadors of several nations- Sweden, Cyprus, Ireland, Greece, and Turkey- on the carpet for launching a flotilla of ‘aid’ to the Gaza Strip, a territory the Israelis have kept under blockade for the past three years due to their terrorist operations against their country.  These countries compiled a ‘fleet’ of eight ships- four of which were cargo ships carrying ‘supplies’ to the Palestinians as well as a ferry trundling down the coast from Turkey carrying 600 people.  The Israelis don’t deserve this crap.  It is a clash of civilizations- Israel representing civilization and the Palestinians representing barbarism.
  62. 2011 Friday: Prime Minister David Cameron confirms that the United Kingdom is sending Apache attack helicopters to help the Libyan rebels in their attempt to overthrow Dictator Moammar Gaddafi.  Meanwhile- California Burning: a massive wildfire in the surrounding hills above Lake Isabella, Kern County, forces residents to flee via the three available avenues out of the area.  The California drought has depleted the massive reservoir.
  63. 2012 Sunday: Following some controversial remarks, Christine Lagarde, head of the International Monetary Fund, suffers accusations of “insulting the Greek people.”   Elsewhere, Vladimir Putin’s hired thugs disguised as ‘protesters’ take to the streets in Tbilisi, Georgia, demanding the ouster of the duly-elected government of Mikhail Saakashvili.    
  64. 2013 Monday: Scientists in Canada bring 400-year-old bryophyte specimens left behind by retreating glaciers during the Ice Age back to life.  Elsewhere, the European Union decided to lift an arms embargo on the Syrian opposition while maintaining all other sanctions against President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator John McCain, R-Arizona, a proponent of arming Syrian rebels (without knowing who the f**k they are), quietly slipped into Syria for a meeting with anti-government forces.       
  65. 2014 Tuesday: President Barack Obama plans to keep 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan through the end of 2015 and then reduce this number over the following two years to a small force; the troops will train Afghan forces and conduct counterterrorism operations.  However, while giving a press conference at Baghram Air Base in Afghanistan, the White House, i.e., President Obama, ‘accidentally leaks’ the name of the top CIA intelligence officer in that country and even worse, he does it before 6,000 assembled journalists.  WTF, President O?  When ‘Scooter’ Libby ‘accidentally’ spilled the name of Valerie Plame, he went to federal prison.
  66. 2015 Wednesday: According to Brainy History, the federal government approves commercial space company SpaceX as a contractor to the U.S. military for satellite launches; SpaceX will compete for contracts against the Boeing-Lockheed Martin United Launch Alliance, currently the primary military launch provider.  Elsewhere, former Senator Rick Santorum, RINO-PA, announces he will be running for 2016 presidential nomination of the Republican Party.  Uh, okay. 
  67. 2016 Friday: Longtime bassist with the soul-funk-rock band, The Ohio Players[iii]—Marshall “Rock” Jones—died on this date in Houston, Texas; he was 75 years-old.  Elsewhere, Iranian morality police scoop up at least 30 college students who had the chutzpah to attend a co-ed graduation party.  The penalty for their crimes?  Ninety-nine lashes.  Wow.  Can’t have the sexes mingling now, can we?  Barbarism folks, plain, simple barbarism.
  68. 2017 Saturday: Gregg Allman, famed lead singer of the Macon, Ga., rock band, the Allman Brothers[iv], died at his home in Richmond Hill, Georgia, on this date due to the ill effects of liver disease.  Elsewhere, at Taormina, Italy, the 43rd G7 summit sputters to an end as every leader save for President Donald J. Trump votes to uphold the NON-BINDING Paris Climate Accord.  Of course, the BBC and American liberals began wailing about ‘climate change denial’ when in truth, there is NO evidence that it exists or does not exist.  The planet is in a constant state of flux and anyone who says otherwise simply does not accept the PROVEN science.  Climate change for former committed communists is the easiest way to force totalitarianism upon an unsuspecting population.
  69. 2018 Sunday: Problems continue erupting across Brazil as workers at the state-owned petroleum company- Petrobras- join the ongoing teamsters strike.  Elsewhere, the Israelis announce they will be building a ‘unique deterrent’ to Palestinians boarding ships and sneaking into Israel by sailing around land barriers and landing on their beaches.  The new obstacles will be three stories high and will be constructed of stone and defensive fencing which will prevent jihadists crossing from Gaza getting into Israel and causing problems.  Destroy the vermin.   (Note- the U.S. requires something like this on the Mexican border by San Diego, California).
  70. 2019 Monday: A new global study that investigated 711 rivers around the world finds that many of them are polluted with antibiotics and other medicines either flushed down the toilet or tossed into them for disposal.  Elsewhere, Reuters reports a horrifying story that in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, prison officials in several different jails discovered the corpses of at least 42 inmates strangled to death.  This followed on the heels of yesterday’s deaths of 15 gangbanging thugs in the state capital’s prison.  The violence appears to be spreading like a cancer.
  71. 2020 Wednesday: Sadly, America’s first attempt in nine years at putting astronauts back into space is scrubbed due to electrical storms raging in parts of Florida.  Saturday is the next date.  Astronauts Bob Bacon and Doug Hurley were aboard the Falcon 9 rocket provided by Space X.  Waiting aboard the Dragon Crew Capsule for their 19-hour trip to the International Space Station for over an hour, the duo learned the flight was postponed due to safety reasons.  We will be there Saturday.
  72. 2020 Wednesday A: The Chinese-created COVID-19 Wuhan Bat Virus continues causing problems and some scientists now say the virus is engineered ‘perfectly’ in that it can morph into variations that a normal virus could not.  Thank you, communist China, but the AICPENDBLOG.COM believed from the beginning that the Wuhan Flu’s appearance was too ‘coincidental’ to show up shortly after the communist Chinese lower-level signatories to the U.S.-China Trade Deal.  That is not right.  Here are the statistics for today for the world: 5,651,806 confirmed cases, 353,246 confirmed deaths, and 2,325,989 confirmed recoveries. 
  73. 2020 Wednesday B: In the United States, we have 1,730,136 confirmed cases, 101,356 confirmed deaths, and 369,460 confirmed recoveries.  It is important to note that recoveries would be much higher if Blue State governors were not playing politics with the disease.  To us, this demonstrates evidence of the COLLUSION between communist China and the Democratic Party, something that must be investigated if the American people are ever to learn the truth.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the statistics, California first: 98,980 confirmed cases, 3,884 confirmed deaths, BUT ZERO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which confirms for us that Governor Gavin Newsom is doing nothing but playing politics.  In Hawaii, here are the numbers: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 592 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the socialist non-paradise of Washington state, here are the stats: 20,181 confirmed cases, 1,078 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  (It is interesting to note that Chef Vladimir says that prior to mail-in ballots in the state became the norm, the state was a reliable RED in every election as it will be again when people return to voting in the normal way).
  74. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 169,616,816 confirmed cases, +537,668, 3,524,509 confirmed deaths, +11,643 and 151,459,161 confirmed recoveries, +65,910.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,999,680 confirmed cases, UP 24,393 from yesterday’s reporting, 607,726 confirmed deaths, UP 630,[v] and 27,701,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 42,832.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]  
  75. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 289,779 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 169,830 deaths  
  76. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,786,604 confirmed cases, 63,161 confirmed deaths, and 2,024,029 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,318,480 confirmed cases, 36,733 confirmed deaths, and 1,939,437 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,032 confirmed cases, 498 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 436,124 confirmed cases, 5,814 confirmed deaths, and 212,224 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Michigan: they have 990,638 confirmed cases, 20,301 confirmed deaths, and 791,206 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  77. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,420 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,599 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Finland, a former ally of Nazi Germany during World War II: 92,062 cases of the virus, 946 confirmed deaths and 46,000 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  78. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,464.64, UP 141.59 points (+0.41%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,736.28, DOWN 1.72 points (-0.013%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,200.88, UP 4.89 points (+0.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $67.13 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.39%).  The price of GOLD is $1,894.30 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $27.86 per troy ounce, -0.08 (-0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,180.60 per troy oz, +1.50 (+0.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.66 per pound, 0.00 (-0.05%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,808.10 per troy oz, +2.96 (+0.11%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $22,750.00 per troy oz., -50.00 (-0.22%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000026.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.95.     In Botswana Pula, one greenback equals 10.58 and in Brazilian Real, a buck equals 5.24 and in Brunei Dollar, one dollar equals 1.32 of theirs.[xii]   In other business news, Bayer’s stocks take a tumble as a federal judge refuses to toss the ongoing lawsuit against Roundup which is under their umbrella of products.   
  79. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.175 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.927 in Hawaii, and $3.565 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Alaska: $3.320.  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- Belarus: $2.928 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,337,169,021,764 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  Regarding gasoline prices, economists believe that higher gas prices won’t affect travel on Memorial Day.
  80. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been the so-called ‘border czar’ now for 66 days and NO one has seen her anywhere near the U.S.-Mexican border.  Speaking of the border disaster, One America News shared some updated statistics on just how dreadful things are at the border.  The costs of caring for the massive number of illegal aliens to the American people today is $584,855,552.  Next, the total cost of caring for these frigging illegal aliens for calendar year 2021 is $160,584,892,416.  The number of known illegals to have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border this year is 1,645,866 while the total number of illegals lurking within the shadows of the United States is 35,645,864.   (Note- we have long said the total number of illegals in the U.S. is between 35-50 million.  It would appear that One America News is backing us up on this number).  
  81. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The New York Times is praising Democrats’ silence on the disastrous mess along the southern border.  Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers were denied access to a DEA facility near El Paso, Texas, by the goons doing the bidding of the Biden regime.  Elsewhere, Rep. Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says, ‘states are playing shell games with illegal alien payments given them by the feds.’   Next, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says the border problem is not helped by ‘Facebook running ads for Mexican cartels.’
  82. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– News reports claim a Russian naval intelligence ship is sailing in the waters just off the coast of Hawaii.  Nothing to see here, folks.  (Yeah, right).  Next, in Iran, the third time in a week a chemical plant housing a nuclear reactor blew up killing one person outright and wounding another two.  Who would do such a dastardly thing, or did it happen because the Iranians are morons?  We await the final word on this event.   Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘external forces are seeking to damage the U.S.-Colombia relationship.’  (Note- most likely those forces are next door in Venezuela).  Moving on, Hong Kong might throw away loads of Chi-Vi vaccines citing citizens’ mistrust in both the former British crown colony’s and mainland China’s governments as well as the ongoing swirling misinformation about both the vaccines and the disease.[xvi]  Finally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad won a historic fourth term as dictator, uh, president, in a landslide election.  Wow.
  83. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Speaking of COVID, Dr. Marty Makary says that ‘half of non-vaccinated Americans are immune to COVID-19’ and that ‘health officials relied more on government mandates than on the science.’  Meanwhile, while Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci continues obfuscating, sputtering, and stammering about his friends, the Chi-Coms’ responsibility in infecting the entire world, Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says, ‘it’s laughable’ for Dr. Fauci to ‘plead ignorance’ over what his pals at the Wuhan Institute of Virology were up to in the lab.  Elsewhere, we learn from a recent study that people who have had mild COVID-19 infections can gain lifelong immunity.  (Note- speaking of ‘Phony Tony,’ he says the vaccine will be available for young kids by the end of 2021; we ain’t giving it to our kids when 99.98-percent of young kids survive the crap).
  84. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  In a Newark, New Jersey, federal courtroom, 26-year-old letter carrier Nicolas Beauchene pleaded guilty to one count of ‘desertion of mail.’  The punk admitted to destroying 99 2020 Election ballots as well as another 2,000 pieces of mail.  And bit by bit by bit, the dominoes continue falling.  We will see a change in the outcome of the 2020 Elections.  Count on it.  (Note- in other curious news regarding the U.S. Postal Service, we continue hearing more and more that the USPS is spying on the social media of the American people under order from the Joe Biden regime.  WTF?)
  85. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been leading infrastructure talks with Congress and not flipping ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Yet another sign the senile old fool is not calling the shots.   Next, former 71st U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Lawrence “Larry” Summers, Democrat, says that Joe Biden’s stimulus plan will lead to rising inflation, inflation current Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, seems to be encouraging via increased government spending.  In other regime news, Joe Biden lifts ALL sanctions on the Russkies so they can now proceed with the construction of the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline running beneath the Baltic Sea to Germany- and they called Donald J. Trump a ‘Russian stooge!’  Joe Biden is a stooge of the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and even the rat-eating Iranians.  This scumbag must be evicted from office NOW.
  86. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II– Speaking of being a stooge of the Chi-Coms, Joe Biden is pushing a flipping $6 trillion federal budget for the next fiscal year.  All this money will come from the Chi-Coms.  Next, according to sources, the Biden regime is denying help to U.S. diplomats dealing with the so-called ‘Havana syndrome,’ the one in which microwaves of unknown origin are harming our overseas diplomats which is indeed an act of war upon the United States.  Meanwhile, the regime has not even looked at page 1 of the GOP $928 billion infrastructure offer, one Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says the GOP is willing to increase.  Finally, the regime dismisses the GOP’s plan for distribution of COVID-19 relief funds.  What’s up with the Biden regime.
  87. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden Regime News III– The lying POS Joe Biden has trotted up to Capitol Hill to head the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives- the ATF- David Chipman is being blasted by Republicans over his whacked-out stance on guns, gun control, and his whacked out ideas of arresting legal owners of AR-15 rifles while saying nothing about Hunter Biden[xvii] lying on his FBI background check and whether he would issue an arrest warrant for the scumbag should be become the next ATF director.  In other news favorable to the regime, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, introduces a bill to treble the budget of the Internal Revenue Service.   Music to the Bidenistas’ ears.
  88. 2021 Thursday N: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Well-known conservative commentator Todd Starnes shared a story about Hillsdale High School valedictorian Elizabeth Turner who was told by principal Amy Goldsmith she could not mention or reference to God Who is extremely important in her life.  After lawyers entered the fray, the courts overruled the principal, and her speech can continue as written at the graduation ceremonies.   Next, Facebook says it will NO longer censor posts pointing the finger at the Chi-Coms for making this pandemic in the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s laboratory.
  89. 2021 Thursday O: Political News I– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, is on the way out because the state’s largest labor union- the SEIU- has abandoned him to his fate and is calling for him to go.  NOW.  Next, after repeated death threats against Mike Lindell of My Pillow, a court rules that the manufacturer’s address can be kept secret while the Dominion Voting Systems’ fraudulent lawsuit against him continues.  They are claiming their product is as clean as the wind-driven snow.  (Note- everyone knows that Dominion is a corrupt, evil company that sells election outcomes to the highest bidder.  IF their home country of Canada won’t use their products, what does that say about the honesty of the company or its products?  Answer: NOT MUCH).
  90. 2021 Thursday P: Political News II– Today, we learned three Democratic members of Congress- Steve “Bucket O’ Fried Chicken” Cohen, DS-TN 9th congressional district, Barbara “Blacktivist” Lee, DS-CA 13th congressional district, and Bobby “Black Panther” Rush, DS-IL 1st congressional district, hosted a tete a tete in which former Black Panther convicted murderers were featured guests.  This event occurred on May 10, 2021.  Next, Los Angeles Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti is going to be the next U.S. ambassador to India which is good because he would never win re-election.  Speaking of ambassadorships, failed Senator Claire McCaskill, DS-MO, who lost in a landslide to now-Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a couple of election cycles ago also stands in line for an ambassadorship somewhere in Europe.  Hmmm, maybe Albania?  Finally, California continues hemorrhaging population as people continue fleeing for better environs.
  91. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News III– Lily Batchelder- Joe Biden’s nominee to be Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy under Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen so far is flying under the radar in her confirmation hearings- so says Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax TV.  She believes that Americans must be taxed on FUTURE INCOME and that taxation should vary via (1) race (2) gender (3) education (4) age (5) education and IQ (6) zip code and (7) behavioral profile.  This woman should NOT be confirmed.  Period.  In other political news, President Donald J. Trump says he plans to run a third time in 2024- provided he remains in good health.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, he and personal attorney- and ‘America’s Mayor’- Rudy Giuliani have asked a judge to toss the Capitol Hill Riots 01-06-2021 lawsuit dimwitted Democrats launched against them.  We concur.  Toss it.   The 45th president also said of his administration compared to the Biden regime, the ‘U.S. was energy independent whereas now- it’s not- thanks to Biden’s policies.’  Finally, famed Democratic strategist James Carville said of his own party that there’s too much ‘arrogance’ and ‘urban smugness’ running the show.
  92. 2021 Thursday R: Political News IV– Former Obama era employee Christine Wormuth received unanimous confirmation in the U.S. Senate to become the first female U.S. Secretary of the Army.  Congratulations.  Elsewhere, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, offered an amendment to a bill being debated that would forbid ‘gain of function’ experiments by medical scientists seeking to amplify the effects of already-dangerous viruses.  He received unanimous consent for his amendment.  Excellent.
  93. 2021 Thursday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Protesters going against a Washington abortion clinic have been granted more access in which to protest the Pro-Death Movement by a judge.  Meanwhile, down in Texas, the Lone Star State’s Senate has passed a so-called ‘trigger bill’ that will kick in IF Roe v. Wade is overturned.  Should it kick in, it will criminalize all abortion providers with lengthy prison sentences for the murder and dismemberment of the unborn.  Excellent.
  94. 2021 Thursday T: Miscellaneous News I– Clay Travis and Buck Sexton will be taking over Rush Limbaugh’s time slot.   Next, the Oscars will once again allow films on streaming services to compete for honors.  Meanwhile, the International Olympic Committee disputes a recent report that says that ‘even if Japan refuses to host the Olympics due to the Chi-Vi, the Olympics will STILL go on.’  Who will hold them?  Oildale, California?  Finally, last evening three Texas cops were shot during a 10-hour SWAT standoff.  The officers will recover, and the POS shooter is in custody.  
  95. 2022 Friday: Stick around and discover the news of the day along with all of us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys is an interesting albeit an odd one.  “Stack-o-Tracks” came out on August 19, 1968 and did something NO other band of which we know and revere at the time as it was ALL INSTRUMENTAL and came with the music sheets and lyrics among other things.  Thus, we have all the BACKING TRACKS to 15 of their earlier and biggest tunes all in one place.  If you can find this oddity, seek it out as it would make for a glorious Karaoke night at the neighborhood watering hole.  Great stuff by a much-beloved band.  Seek it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

Trump goes around Congress to make sure a multi-billion-dollar sale of arms to Saudi Arabia occurs.  Democrats are angry at this because they want to deny the Saudis the weapons with which to defend themselves from the Iranians because they are still pissed off over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.
  64. 2020 Memorial Day Monday: Failed New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, releases a 51-page edict outlining how the state will reopen in the event COVID-19- communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ which is sad.  The (former) Empire State will never be the same what with a constant stream of middle-and-upper-middle class citizens leaving for elsewhere.  Here are the statistics for the Wuhan Virus for today, first the globe: 5,490,954 confirmed cases, 345,962 confirmed deaths, but 2,228,952 confirmed recoveries which is amazing and a good sign.
  65. 2020 Memorial Day Monday A: Here are the statistics for the United States: 1,696,874 confirmed cases, 99,459 confirmed deaths, but 352,612 confirmed recoveries which would resemble the percentage of the globe IF the various Blue State governors would be honest and present the numbers of recoveries, but they won’t.  They seek to keep things locked down which in our view is criminal: it demonstrates the COLLUSION between the Democratic Party and their communist Chinese taskmasters in Beijing and here in our country.  We must thwart them.

Gavin Newsom KNOWS that if he shared them, NO one would obey his stay-at-home orders.  In Hawaii, here are the figures: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 591 confirmed recoveries for which, we must thank Gov. David Ige for his honesty.  Finally, in Washington state where whacked-out Governor Jay Inslee holds power (people, vote this baboon out!), here are the stats: 20,065 confirmed cases, 1,070 confirmed deaths, and sadly, like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  You know, Washington was once a wonderful state but now- in the grip of Democrats- languishes in the throes of Democratic-Socialism!  Free California!  Free Washington!  Free Tibet!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free and independent Taiwan (until they liberate the mainland)!  Free from Democratic-Socialism and Communism!
  67. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet As A Whole: 168,514,195 confirmed cases, +3,377, 3,499,505  confirmed deaths, +267 and 150,112,274 confirmed recoveries, +80,205.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,947,189 confirmed cases, UP 32,100 from yesterday’s reporting, 605,208 confirmed deaths, UP 904,[ix] and 27,606,442 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,997.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[x]   
  68. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, There Have Been 288,596 CHI-VI Deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 171,013 deaths  
  69. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,780,101 confirmed cases, 62,984 confirmed deaths, and 2,021,886 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,313,815 confirmed cases, 36,581 confirmed deaths, and 1,929,132 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,924 confirmed cases, 496 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 432,993 confirmed cases, 5,780 confirmed deaths, and 211,014 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Jersey: they have 1,014,579 confirmed cases, 26,125 confirmed deaths, and 873,637 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  70. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,389 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,523 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Uzbekistan, a former part of the old Soviet Union: 98,849 cases of the virus, 94,385 confirmed deaths and 96,666 confirmed recoveries.[xii]     
  71. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,312.46, DOWN 81.52 points (-0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,657.17, DOWN 4.00 points (-0.029%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.13, DOWN 8.92 points (-0.21%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.99 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.12%).  The price of GOLD is $1,899.90 per troy oz., +1.90 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $28.12 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,196.20 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, 0.00 (+0.09%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,770.60 per troy oz, +42.37 (+1.55%).[xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $27,250.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-1.80%).[xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.41 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Belarusian Ruble, one greenback equals 2.51 and in Belize Dollars, a buck equals 2.00 and in Bermudian Dollar, one dollar equals 1.00 of theirs.[xvi]   In other business news, Washington, D.C., has launched an antitrust lawsuit against Amazon over their purported mistreatment of vendors.  Wow.   Meanwhile, rents have gone up by 1.9-percent, the highest rate in 10 years, while rents for single-family homes have gone up 4.3-percent from last year.  (Note- we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe the Chi-Coms will be buying up commercial and residential real estate using straw buyers so they can become the de facto landlords of the average American.  This is not right, and immediate action must be taken to drive these bat-eating scumbags out of everyday American life).  
  72. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.165 per gallon, $2.869 in Florida, $3.909 in Hawaii, and $3.562 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Virgin Islands: $3.239.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Liberia: $2.911 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,328,605,823,085 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– One year after the death of George Floyd, the American people reflect on his ‘life and times.’  Here is what the majority of the chef-bloggers at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe: George Floyd was a thug[xx] and had he not continued scuffling with the police but had complied with their commands, he would be alive today.  Maybe he would be doing time in the county jail, but he would be alive today.  When stopped by the cops and you are as high as hell and tried to pass a counterfeit $20 bill, do what the hell the cops instruct you to do, and you will most likely survive the interaction.  Period.   We are sorry that Mr. Floyd behaved like a dimwit but man, oh man, did his family (and the Democratic Party) profit from his demise.  Tragic.  Meanwhile, drooling Joe Biden hosted Mr. Floyd’s family at the White House demanding that lawmakers pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act 2021- H.R. 1280- NOW.  Such is Democrats pandering to identity politics.
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day #64 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be doing something about the southern border calamity and yet, she has yet to visit, and nothing is being done.  The floodgates are open, the vermin are swarming out of Third World sewers and overwhelming the United States.  (Note- we always suggest watching the ORIGINAL- and not the PC sanitized- version of “Red Dawn,” (1984).  About midway through the movie, you will see how the United States fell under assault by the Russians and Cubans- advance waves of millions of illegal aliens flooded into the country followed by troops from the two communist countries.  It is eye-opening.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– President Donald J. Trump congratulated himself on the roll out of the Chi-Vi vaccine.  Meanwhile, the Moderna Bat Flu vaccine has been approved for use by teenagers and could become available to teenaged Americans by early next month.   Elsewhere, after photos appeared showing Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer enjoying the good life at the Landshark Bar and Grill in East Lansing, Michigan came to light- the horrible chief executive of a once-lovely state is facing growing blowback.  People in her state are chafing under a soul-crushing lockdown while the rectangular-headed bozo governor can go out and have a celebration in public much like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in California did a few months back at the famed French Laundry.  Remove this authoritarian skank from office NOW.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump slammed the pink panties-wearing Joe Scarborough of ‘Morning Joe’ infamy today for being a political hack.  Next, Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office George P. Bush talks to President Trump about political options for the Lone Star State- he is thinking of running against current Attorney General Ken Paxton.  Speaking of Texas, the state’s legislature has passed the “Star-Spangled Banner” Bill; it awaits the signature of Republican Governor Greg Abbott.  Elsewhere, Congressman Brad Wenstrup, R-OH 2nd congressional district, told Newsmax that Joe Biden’s reluctance to confront the Chi-Coms is ‘unfair to all mankind.’  (Note- we have said this before- the Chi-Coms are the National Socialists of the 21st century as they have (1) territorial ambitions (2) are more fascists now than communists and (3) have concentration and slave labor/death camps for ethnic and religious minorities as well as other undesirables (in their eyes).   They are an ‘Asian version’ of the Nazis.  How soon before they add swastikas to their flags?).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News II– The FBI is investigating a suspicious package that some liberal lunatic sent to Senator Rand Paul, R-KY.  Next, the Senate GOP appears ready to employ the filibuster against the bogus January 06, 2021 ‘Commission’ in which, the Democrats will try- once again- to impeach President Donald J. Trump and to sully other Republicans if they can over the FALSE FLAG OPERATION that occurred on that fateful day.   We believe the American people are becoming much more aware that what we saw on January 06, 2021, was a well-orchestrated theatrical production designed to do exactly what it accomplished: force the reluctant Republicans into not questioning all the fraudulent and corrupt activities on and around Election Day and 2020 and to certify the election.[xxi]
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News III– Zack Smith, legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, said today that ‘D.C. statehood requires a constitutional amendment to become reality.’  We concur- the District of Columbia was NEVER meant to be a state and anyone who claims otherwise must go back and retake civics as well as to open their eyes.  If the denizens of the nation’s capital want ‘full rights,’ the land on which everything sits- other than actual government buildings- should be returned to the states that offered up portions of their territories in the first place.  Problem solved.   Meanwhile, the Senate GOP is offering up a compromise on Joe Biden’s ‘infrastructure package’ of nearly $1 trillion but only for actual infrastructure.   Elsewhere, ex-White House counsel under President Donald J. Trump Don McGahn is expected to testify on the Robert S. Mueller III ‘investigation into Trump-Russia collusion,’ one of the all-time great political witch hunts of all time.  Finally, America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani says of the rampant anti-Semitism taking place across the country: “Very dangerous thing we are watching.”
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1662 with a $20 million pot on the line: 14, 21, 31, 34, 54, and Mega 11.   
  80. 2022 Wednesday: Everyone knows the drill.  Stick around to discover the truth and note- we know the world is up to its usual tricks…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

[v] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.  Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too.  Perhaps one day we will.

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

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

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

[xxi] The more I pay attention to the events of January 06, 2021, the more I smell a rat.  One does not have to love Donald Trump to know my party screwed him.  I don’t like the road down which we are traveling.  I didn’t ask for socialism, nor did I ask for communism.  – Chef Roland.

2017 Tuesday: Elsewhere, that knuckle-dragging cretin, former Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan testifies before the House Intelligence Committee saying he ‘knows of people who say there was contact between the Trump campaign and the damned Russians.’ Wow. Big bulls**t, there Mr. ‘Former’ Communist.

  68. 2020 Saturday: More information continues coming to light about how the communist Chinese have been working on bat viruses for the past 15-20 years.  The question is WHY?  Some say it’s because of SARS which caused numerous deaths when it broke out a decade or so ago while others believe- us, too- that it is for biowarfare research.  Well, it appears that COVID-19 did manage to jailbreak the Wuhan Institute of Virology and away we go.  Now dictator for life Xi Jinping says he welcomes a W.H.O.-led investigation into the origin of the Wuhan Virus when it ends.  When it ends?  And the W.H.O.?  The World Health Organization does the bidding of Xi Jinping so why would anyone believe anything it or the communists in Beijing say?  Here are today’s stats, first for the globe: 5,288,392 confirmed cases, 340,875 confirmed deaths, and 2,102,557 confirmed recoveries the last of which gives us hope as the number of recoveries far outweighs deaths.
  69. 2020 Saturday A: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the United States: 1,656,906 confirmed cases, 97,414 confirmed deaths, and 334,452 confirmed recoveries.  Now, we head to the breakdown of the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, California first: 90,631 confirmed cases, 3,708 confirmed deaths, but as usual, ZERO confirmed recoveries because Gov. Gavin Newsom continues playing politics.  He and his regime believe that IF they continue NOT publishing the number of recoveries, Californians will be afraid but next week when we begin seeing temperatures soar to over 100 degrees, people are going to disobey all governmental orders and edicts.  We won’t forget WHO is destroying the economy and It’s NOT President Donald J. Trump.  No, it’s Democrat governors.  Here are the stats for Hawaii: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 579 confirmed recoveries.  Here at the statistics for Washington state: 19,265 confirmed cases, 1,050 confirmed deaths, and ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Come on, Gov. Jay Inslee, release the true stats, you worthless POS.
  70. 2020 Saturday B: Our contacts in Hong Kong continue scoffing at the numbers put out by the communists in Beijing.  Communist China claims 82,974 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,261 confirmed recoveries while Hong Kong claims 1,066 confirmed cases, 4 confirmed deaths, and 1,029 confirmed recoveries.  Our sources claim the numbers for communist China are more like 780,000 confirmed cases, 400,000-plus deaths, and about 1,700,000 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you for the info, please stay safe, Hong Kong!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free Taiwan!  Free Tibet!  Free Mainland China!  Time to return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as the legitimate government of the mainland and the People’s Republic of China as a usurper government.  We must bring Taiwan back to the United Nations and restore their seat on the U.N. Security Council as it was before the communist takeover.

  76. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.161 per gallon, $2.874 in Florida, $3.907 in Hawaii, and $3.563 in Washington state.[xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Guam: $4.345.  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- Uzbekistan: $2.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,321,440,516,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  77. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– today is Day 62 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris in this job and guess what- she has yet to visit the southern border to do the job. 
  78. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Outrage is growing over Belarus forcing down Ryanair Flight 4978 over its territory to seize a critic of thug ruler Alexander Lukashenko, journalist Raman Pratasevich.  The flight was coming from Athens, Greece, on the way to Vilnius, Lithuania, and as it traversed Belarusian airspace, fighter jets came alongside the aircraft while ground control warned the pilots of a bomb aboard the craft.  The flight then was directed to land at Minsk where the authorities went aboard and arrested Mr. Pratasevich.  Of course, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and other world leaders- including NATO!- condemned the Lukashenko government for this criminal act.  Question- who will do anything about it?  (Note- any members of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day will be careful as to where we fly so as to avoid any kind of illegal rendition threats).
  79. 2021 Sunday H: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– The “Amazing” Dr. Tony Fauci has made it into the running for the 2021 Award that will be awarded in January 2022.  Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is on the list because he is little more than a hired gun political hack who will babble whatever those funding his lunacy tell him to say.  Who can remember ‘masks were not necessary,’ then ‘masks were,’ then ‘maybe googles, too,’ then ‘maybe no goggles,’ then ‘perhaps two masks,’ then ‘perhaps three masks,’ as well as ‘schools should reopen’ and yet they are not open?  Yup.  He has earned his place in the running this year- Chef Pedro.
  80. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Oh, the gift that continues giving- thank you, communist China, thank you.  According to reports, India which is suffering some massive numbers of the Wuhan Flu also is seeing a dreadful additional effect, the so-called ‘black fungus,’ which in medical parlance is mucormycosis that centers around the eyes, nose, and mouth and can cause death in about half the cases reporting it.  According to the Indian government, they have close to 9,000 cases of this diabolical accompaniment of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  And you question as to whether this evil disease was created in a Chi-Com lab funded by the devious Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.
  81. 2022 Monday: As you know, we await the news of the day…stick around and discover the truth…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys were at a crossroads as far as which direction to go.  Fun at the beach was being replaced with mind trips via smoking the ganja and dropping the big LSD.  Like everyone else, the Beach Boys were expanding their consciousness via the weed and psychedelics and the album composer Brian Wilson was working on- “Smile”- was too far out for the rest of the group and so they released a subpar one entitled, “Smiley Smile” on September 16, 1967.  Although the album was no “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” (Beatles), “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request” (Rolling Stones), “Face to Face” by the Kinks, or “Ogden’s Nut-Gone Flake” (Small Faces), it produced one of the all-time greatest hits of the era: “Good Vibrations” and a lesser one, albeit a live staple, “Heroes and Villains.”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and percussion), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  We love this album and understand that 55 years on, it’s still a glorious album to be sure.  We hope everyone will seek this one out, give it a good listen, and then make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- we believe you will be joyous that you did.
