  62. 2020 Friday: Following last night’s announcement that President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for the Chi-Vi, they are in isolation.   Speaking of President Trump, Reuters reports the results of a recent poll that shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden is smoking Trump by virtue of what many believe to be an insurmountable lead of nine points.  However, Gallup reports that President Trump’s approval ratings are at their highest since the month of March, 46-percent.  A question asked by Gallup pollsters, “Despite whom you plan to support on November 3 and viewing things objectively, who do you think will win on November 3?”  A whopping 56-percent to 40-percent said they believe that President Trump will win re-election.  That says a lot.  Still, a poll on CNBC says that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to whoop President Trump by 54-percent to 41-percent.    Meanwhile, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a $2.2 TRILLION COVID-19 relief bill.  All Republicans- plus 18 Democrats- voted against it.  It is expected to die a slow death in the U.S. Senate. 
  63. 2020 Friday A: Chinese state-run media is laughing at President Trump following his announcement of having the Chinese Virus.  Why are you laughing?  This has been Beijing’s plan all along, to infect as many Americans as possible.  The rest of the world is merely collateral damage in the eyes of the modern-day Mandarin scum.  Speaking of all-things Chi-Com, Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Miami Heat (Lakers won 116 to 98) had the lowest viewership since 1994 when the New York Knicks played the Houston Rockets faced off against one another: 7 million, down from Game 1 of last year’s finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors.  That matchup had 13.7 million viewers.  Perhaps it’s time for the NBA to move to communist China, a place they seem to value more than they do their native country.  Adios, muchachos.
  64. 2020 Friday B: U.S. unemployment dropped below 8-percent yesterday, coming in at 7.9-percent what with 661,000 new jobs created and an increase in wage growth by 4.7-percent.   Speaking of economics, Switzerland announces it has approved a minimum wage of $25 per hour.  Yikes.  The cost of everything is going to skyrocket which means the mountain-surrounded country will have to import more Muslim refugees to fill low-wage jobs (under the table, if you know what we mean).  Elsewhere, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces that the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett will plow ahead, even as Democrats screech for a slow-down in the process.  Speaking of court matters, the U.S. Supreme Court says it’s going to review a BALLOT HARVESTING LAW in the state of Arizona.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Earlier today, Marine One transported President Donald J. Trump to Walter Reed Medical Center due to his Xi Jinping Bat Flu symptoms.  Upon arrival, he walked off the helicopter on his own volition, snapped a salute to military personnel, and headed for the hospital.  First Lady Melania Trump remains at the White House.  Son, Baron, and other family members have tested negative for the virus.  We neglected to mention that RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also has the Chi-Vi.  Get well, Mr. President, and Nancy “Mumbles’ Pelosi, stop talking about presidential succession: YOU will NEVER get close to the White House other than as an invited guest.

  69. 2020 Friday G:  As has become the norm, if you want to know what sorts of devious activities the Democratic Party and their bosses in Beijing are up to, you will have to check in throughout the day as more and more information continues coming to light.  We know the Chi-Coms and their allies in the Democratic Party are celebrating the president’s plight; their time is coming and it’s coming soon.  We also know as of today that the Chi-Coms are waging war on our blog site, using their stooge at Google- Sundar Pichai- to put us in page 100 of search results.  What do you scumbags fear?  YOU fear free speech?  We know Sundar Pichai sure the heck does; after all, he’s the POS who shut down the popular Google Plus site, used by millions of users around the world.  He did to stick his nose up Xi Jinping’s butt.
  70. 2020 Friday H: We learned this evening that the Michigan Supreme Court struck down Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat- a woman, who if ANTIFA truly battled fascism would be there en masse doing battle with her- struck down her recent bald-faced attempt at extending her dictatorial power by extending the COVID-19 lockdown until the end of October.  They said without approval by the state’s legislature, her orders were invalid.  According to the court, ‘life must begin returning to normal.’  Elsewhere, we learned that former White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway tested positive for the Wuhan Virus as has North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, Republican, Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, and three members of the White House Press Corps.   Sadly, many on the left are praying the president dies while world leaders- from Boris Johnson, UK, Angela Merkel, Germany, Vladimir Putin, Russia, and Kim Jong-Un, North Korea.  Thank you.   We also must note that both the former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden both tested NEGATIVE today for the Chinese Virus.  Good health to you and yours.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [ix]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 403,498 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 580 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xv]    Let us look at one other North Carolina: $3.008.  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- Netherlands: $8.257 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,831,207,808,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.

  79. 2022 Sunday: Observation of the Day- Like many of my colleagues, My contention is the United Nations no longer possesses any relevancy what with the ongoing war in the Ukraine and the atrocities Russian and Russian mercs are committing there.[xviii]  While I understand that Russia can veto any resolution merely because of their presence on the U.N. Security Council, one would think that the UN Secretary-General would be hitting them every day with demands to cease, desist, and to evacuate that war-torn land.  As with most things, the creators of the U.N. somehow did not envision the possibility that one of the five permanent members would begin an illegal and unjustified war and yet it has happened at least twice now: George W. Bush’s criminal invasion of Iraq and now Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine.  BOTH of these men should be tried in the Hague and both these men should be given lengthy prison sentences.  I would hope that the next president- the rightful president– uncovers a way through which we can rectify this glaring mistake.  We know the current lump of aged flesh in the Oval Office will do nothing other than to commit billions and billions of borrowed Chi-Com monies to the fight AFTER he and his corrupt family skim off copious amounts of cash.  I’m not saying anything everyone does not know, okay?  The Biden regime and family are as corrupt as they come.  It is what it is.  Let’s sweep the November midterms and let us march forward as a unified people.  See you in six months- let us hope things are better than they are now.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0970 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset Magic.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On February 12, 1998, Cheap Trick released the full edition of their first live album, “Live at Budokan,”- “Live at Budokan- the Complete Concert.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

[i] We hope that when President Trump returns to the White House that he and a unified GOP will deport the United Nations out of New York City and send it to Beijing where it’s better suited.  Get the U.N. out of the U.S. NOW.

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

People, don’t get orgasmic over Lindsey Graham debuting a 15-week ban on abortions bill. He is not doing it because he wants to protect human life. No, he’s doing it so the GOP doesn’t win the Senate and his overweight boss, the Turtle, can maintain his choke on the throat of GOP power

  59. 2020 Saturday:  Already tensions are growing as to whom will replace Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.  This is what most of the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe: after what the Democrats and the RINOS have put you through what with the false claims of Russian collusion, impeachment, and roadblocks at every turn, nominate the replacement on Monday and go for it.  As for quavering GOP senators, do you want to go down as a FIGHTER and lose your seat or as a COLLABORATIONIST and perhaps lose your seat anyway?  States with messed-up elections systems such as California and Maine must contest these bogus systems at the Supreme Court and the only way we can win is with a strong conservative on the court.  Republicans, do your duty as you know the Democrats would not waver in doing theirs and in fact would hasten it as quickly as possible.   President Trump is down in North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is at home in his basement spanking the wank.  Elsewhere, a shooting at a party with 100 revelers or more in Buffalo, New York claims the life of one partygoer and injures four others.   Speaking of SCOTUS, Fox News Channel reports (erroneously, in our view) that voters trust “Pro-China Joe” Biden on picking Supreme Court nominees by a whopping 52 percent to 45 percent for Donald Trump.  Yup, sure they do…sure they do…

[xiii]    Let us look at one other Illinois: $3.402.  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- France: $7.060 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,780,214,457,944 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Taiwan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Cayman Islands with $223 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  72. 2021 Sunday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 178 for the world-famous ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 85 since her sole visit to the El Paso Sector for a photo op.  Anyhow, here are the numbers as presented by OAN today regarding the illegal alien crisis.  First, here is the cost for just this day- Sunday, September 19, 2021– $553,779,968.  Imagine all that money put to beneficial use such as helping homeless vets, the drug addicted, even American urban outdoorsmen.  Imagine what that could do for AMERICANS instead of the Third World’s detritus.  Wow.  Next, here is the amount of taxpayer money wasted on caring for the illegal alien invaders for the calendar year 2021: $286,581,260,288.  Third, here is the appalling TRUE number of illegals who have flowed across the southern border this year: 2,937,228.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegal aliens living in the country, a number we believe is FAR TOO LOW: 36,937,228. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  73. 2022 Monday: Observation of the Day- Well, well, well, so little Lindsey Graham- last week- released his new bill to national opprobrium that would restrict abortions to 15 weeks- across the entire country. Look, I am Pro-Life, but I suspect that what Senator Graham is doing is the same as what we allege Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did and that is to toss the Democrats AND Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell.  We contend at the AICPENDBLOG.COM that Roberts is the one behind the now infamous leak of the opinion that sent abortion back to the fifty states.  We allege Roberts did this (haven’t found the leaker yet, have they?) so as to mobilize all the Pro-Death maggots to take to the streets and cause trouble.  Similarly, Senator Graham did this so as to prevent a GOP takeover of the Senate so his good friend and boss, the Turtle, could keep his leadership position as minority leader.  While we believe the GOP is going to overwhelm the Senate in November, the question is this: will the new Republican senators possess the big balls to vote the Turtle out of the leadership?  Look, we need to win both Houses and BOTH McConnell and that POS Kevin McCarthy must lose their seats.  Otherwise, it’s the same old shit.  Chef Kilgore Randalini.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0957 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Bouquet.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick returned to form with their next studio release, “One on One” which came out on April 30, 1982.  The lineup was different what with the departure of Tom Petersson in 1980 featuring a refurbished lineup of Robin Zander (guitars, backing vocals, bass, and keyboards), Robin Zander (rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and new bassist/backing vocalist Jon Brant.  The album was somewhat a blast from the past returning the band to its earlier form, hard-rocking pop musicians.  “If You Want My Love” is the big hit on this album as well as “She’s Tight.”  We love this band, we love this album, and we encourage everyone to seek it out at your favorite site for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

239. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 27, 2022

2022 Saturday: I don’t know about you, but I am still awaiting Chief Justice John Roberts to release the report on the leaker of the opinion written by Associate Justice Samuel Alito that overturned the vile Roe v. Wade. Many seemingly have forgotten he promised to do this. Others suspect he will never do it whereas we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have come to believe that Chief Justice Roberts is the leaker.

  65. 2019 Tuesday: In Coatzacoalcos, Mexico, a bar fire claims the lives of at least 25 revelers, set by a rival gang.  Who in their right mind would ever want to visit modern Mexico?
  66. 2020 Thursday: Upon the start of the day, Hurricane Laura- as it slammed into the Texas-Louisiana coastline- rapidly became a Cat 2 and then a Cat 1 and then a tropical storm once again although it was causing problems and four people died from falling trees.  Elsewhere, Sen. Kamala Harris of the Harris-Biden 2020 Democratic ticket gave a speech today.  Having to listen to her nasal tones, her bitchy voice, her leering smiles is going to be tough over the next two months but as @ChefLilah at our Twitter feed says, ‘thankfully, we won’t have to’ because they are going to lose.   Why didn’t Sen. Harris take questions when her speech concluded?  Meanwhile, police in Kenosha, Wisconsin, are trying to extradite the 17-year-old shooter so they can charge him with first-degree murder charges.  Where can we donate to for the defense of this young man?  He was doing what the cops wouldn’t do, protecting life and property.  Please, someone tell us.

  68. 2020 Thursday B: Various sports leagues are boycotting their schedules/playoff schedules as first the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday followed by other NBA teams, MLB teams, and today, NHL teams over the shooting of Jason Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Look, we get it but the more you politicize your sports the less likely we are to continue watching your games which means the less money you will be able to earn in the future.  Speak out on YOUR own but when leagues begin going down this road, it spells trouble for your longevity.  Sorry.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast Guard offloads 30,000 pounds of narcotics in Miami worth about $228 million, intercepted and confiscated on the high seas.

[vi]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 334,697 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 69,381 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  74. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,308,249 confirmed cases, 65,612 confirmed deaths, and 2,258,710 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,225,007 confirmed cases, 43,640 confirmed deaths, and 2,332,456 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 59,613 confirmed cases, 582 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 553,487 confirmed cases, 6,569 confirmed deaths, and 244,685 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New Hampshire: they have 106,525 confirmed cases, 1,415 confirmed deaths, and 102,312 confirmed recoveries.

[viii]     
  76. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,455.80, UP 242.68 points (+0.69%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,129.50, UP 183.69 points (+1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,509.37, UP 39.37 points (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.67 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,820.50 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.05%) while the price of SILVER is $24.03 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.13%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,006.60 per troy oz, +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of COPPER is $4.32 per pound, 0.00 +0.05%).

[xii]        
  77. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.394 per gallon, $2.950 in Florida, $4.071 in Hawaii, and $3.896 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let us look at one other location- Texas: $2.791.  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- Czech Republic: $5.855 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,691,729,665,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Norway, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Even though victims of the blast claim otherwise, the Pentagon now says that there was but one blast at the Kabul airport yesterday that claimed the lives of 12 U.S. Marines and one Navy corpsman along with at least 85 Afghan citizens.  (The Pentagon claims to have evacuated 12,500 in the last day at HKIA but have no clue as to whom they evacuated).  The U.S. is bracing for more terrorist attacks by ISIS-K in Kabul.  Now that the Taliban are back to running the show, Iran is resuming shipments of oil to the country.  Rep. Don Bacon, R-NE 2nd congressional district, said of yesterday’s twin blasts at HKIA that it’s the ‘worst national security debacle.’  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says he wants an immediate House vote on delaying the withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Not sure we agree but we must get everyone out of that country.  Rep. Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says that Congress ‘should be in session during the Afghan crisis.’  (Good luck with that).
  79. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– A new U.S. intelligence report suggests that the Chi-Com leadership had NO clue as to what was going on at the Wuhan Institute of Virology was doing.  Bulls**t.
  80. 2021 Friday H: Health and Medical Alerts– In Japan, a batch of Moderna Chi-Vi vaccine shipments is discovered to be tainted with metal particles.  Meanwhile, as cases of the Delta variant continue to skyrocket, Joe Biden is hemorrhaging support among independent voters as he is among every other group.  A new poll says that most Americans believe the economy is worsening due to skyrocketing COVID-19 numbers.  The Chi-Coms continue to say that anyone who connects the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to them will suffer all kinds of horrible repercussions.  Look, Chi-Coms, you may be going to control the world, but you don’t control it now.  -Chef Fritz.  Elsewhere, more medical workers are flowing into Texas to help with the spike in Chi-Vi cases down there.
  81. 2021 Friday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.60 (2) AstraZeneca $58.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $172.93 (4) BioNTech $358.48 (5) Moderna $382.22.
  82. 2021 Friday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $85.40 (2) General Dynamics: $199.72 (3) Boeing: $221.66 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.99 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $364.99.
  83. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– A mother is suing the Transportation Security Administration- the TSA- because TSA goons strip-searched her tranny kid.   Next, now that the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down by a vote of 6-3 Joe Biden’s evictions moratorium, the question is would the Biden regime honor it?  Next, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is demanding that slobbering Joe Biden recognize the opposition in Afghanistan and NOT- we repeat- the Taliban.  (Note- the Antitrump is going to do the exact opposite of whatever President Donald J. Trump and common sense would do).  Meanwhile, POS Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, says there will be ‘NO impeachment of Joe Biden resulting from the regime’s bad decisions.’  (Note- to Ronna McDaniel, chairperson of the RNC, you can understand WHY millions of Republicans will no longer donate to the organization because of all the RATS within the party.  Clean out the rats and watch the money flow, don’t and watch it go).
  84. 2021 Friday L: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Aaron Babbitt, widower of Ashli Babbitt murdered by Capitol Hill Police Department Lt. Michael Byrd says that ‘D.C. and the media ran cover’ for this POS scumbag who shot an unarmed woman.  (Note- most of us believe that since Lt. Byrd is flawed from having two incidences of leaving his loaded service firearm in public places, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered that ‘someone had to die’ during the riots.  It is as if a certain degree of violence had to occur so it could be spun to the advantage of the Democrats.  Shame on them).  Meanwhile, District of Columbia officials are bracing for the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001, terror attacks as well as a protest in support of the brave souls being held in the D.C. slammer for having been on Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021.
  85. 2021 Friday M: Political News I– As Democratic-Socialists continue saying ignorant things (Sandy “The Fly” Cortez ranks towards the top), U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer says, ‘it’s not at all inappropriate for politics to affect his retirement decision.’  The socialists want him to step down so they can place some loony tunes crackpot loser onto the nation’s high court.  We hope he stays.  Next, a new Rasmussen Reports poll says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s popularity continues to fall which we believe is because of all the lying in which, he has engaged.  He must be careful, look at what happened to ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  Like Daedalus and his son, Icarus, Icarus flew too close to the Sun and went down like a stone.  It is important for one to know their place in the world.  Speaking of Cuomo, Politico reports that the disgraced Empire State former chief executive is ‘plotting revenge’ on new Empire State Governor Kathy Hochul.  Why?  She didn’t bring you down, Mr. Cuomo, you brought yourself down, dimwit.
  86. 2021 Friday N: How bad can things continue getting?  I hate to say it, I think we are on the cusp of disaster.  Why the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the North Koreans, even the Cubans and the Venezuelans and every Third World terrorist group are not moving against us this very minute is mind-boggling.  We have a feeble president, one who clasps his head in his hands and mumbles, stumbles, rumbles around are not only humiliating, but it’s also damned well dangerous.  PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP, WE NEED YOU BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE NOW.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.
  87. 2022 Saturday:  I don’t know about you, but I am still awaiting Chief Justice John Roberts to release the report on the leaker of the opinion written by Associate Justice Samuel Alito that overturned the vile Roe v. Wade.  Many seemingly have forgotten he promised to do this.  Others suspect he will never do it whereas we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have come to believe that Chief Justice Roberts is the leaker.  For more than a decade now, conservatives have been suspicious of the ‘conservatism’ of Justice Roberts because he seems to be more in the tank for the Democrats and the liberals- especially since President Donald J. Trump changed the face of the court with three right-leaning justices- because he believes in some sort of equilibrium so long as it leans left.  He is the one, after all, who prevented the deeply flawed Obamacare from falling onto the scrap heap of history just as he has saved other leftist laws.  I suspect that he is the sole leaker of the decision ending Roe because he is beholden to the LEFT and always has been.  All one need do is to look at the president who appointed him: George W. Bush.  Boy, do we have buyer’s remorse on that one.  Let me know what you think- Chef Goldie McNamara.

Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After 36 years, Beach Boys vocalist, Mike Love, returned with his second solo album: “Unleash the Love,” put out on November 17, 2017.  Mike Love had been compiling songs for more than three decades, having a musical vision contained within his mind but requiring an army of musicians to make the dream materialize.  Eventually, he brought in loads of musicians and over the course of the sessions released a quality solo album.  He included a disc featuring re-records of earlier Beach Boys songs so as to keep the money flowing from updated copyrights which is cool.  Performers such as Eric Burdon have done the same thing only he unwittingly lost control of his music.  Mr. Love has not.  We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite site for the best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.
