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

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

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 298,182 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 161,467 deaths

  63. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.227 per gallon, $2.962 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.625 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Minnesota: $2.858.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Lesotho: $3.766 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,413,747,338,681 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxii]
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, today is Day #85 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border calamity and not to have shown up for a single day’s work on the job.  Still, President Donald J. Trump will be visiting the Texas-Mexico border with Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, on June 30.  Many are speculating as to whether the laughing jackass border czar will rush down to the border for a quick photo op or won’t show up thereby proving our point, she is little more than a low IQ, empty pantsuit, the former ‘mattress’ of California Democratic Party bigwig, Willie Brown.  Ah, well, speaking of Governor Abbott, the patriotic Texas governor said that President Donald J. Trump set a ‘high mark’ for control of the southern border.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News shared the latest stats today concerning the border cataclysm: (1) Cost this day of caring for millions of illegal aliens: $585,083,840.  (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $182,502,932,480.  (3) Total numbers of illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 1,870,509.  (4) Estimated total number of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 35,870,508.  Note, we have said since 2009 at the blog’s inception that the total numbers were 35-50 million; now, we believe we have 75-100 million river-swimming, fence-climbing, and/or desert-crossing illegals in the U.S.  IF we deported ALL the illegals gobbling away at the benefits of being an American, rents and mortgages would precipitously drop, wages would go up, our students would become better-educated and would move through the educational system at a faster pace, Social Security and Medicare would be strengthened, and there would be far fewer Americans drawing unemployment and welfare checks.  There would also be less crime, fewer drunken driving fatalities, less rapes- especially of minors, fewer break-ins, less shop-lifting, you name it, our country would be in such better shape, it’s difficult to comprehend until you start comprehending it.  Yet, they want them here which to us verifies the veracity of the Replacement Theory.  Still, we say, BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  Update- “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is sending law enforcement officers to Texas and Arizona to help defend the southern border.  God bless him!
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fred Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, made the witty observation that the ‘Europeans LOVE decrepit old Joe Biden’ because ‘America is back.’  America is back meaning the U.S. will be footing the bill while the Europeans are allowed to renege on their obligations.  Speaking of Joe Biden overseas, the summit between he and Russian President Vladimir Putin failed to go the distance today.  Instead of going the full five hours promised by the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ it went about half that.  President Putin held a press conference first and ripped the U.S. leader a new one in subtle and witty ways while Joe then came out, held his, and we must say, the Aduhelm must have been working well today because we would give his press conference a C+ grade.  (Note- we don’t expect to see the feeble old perv for about a week now as he tries to recover from this challenging trip).   The two leaders apparently agreed to a return to the arms control treaty negotiations (all the while the Chi-Coms[xxiii] continue building a massive arsenal) as well as to the exchange of diplomats once again.  Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said it was ‘way too early for Joe Biden to be meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, says that the ‘new system for checking his citizens’ status for the Chi-Vi vaccine are NOT a vaccine passport.  (Good- because we are not going to get this crap anyway- see you in November, governor).  Next, a new report says that at a pop-up vaccination site in New York City, medical personnel carried out 899 ‘jabs’ using defective vaccines.  Say what?  Yet another reason to avoid this crap.  Elsewhere, the U.S. government has spent more taxpayer monies buying 14 million Johnson & Johnson vaccines for overseas export.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is ‘yet to get a response from either the National Institute of Health (NIH) or from Health and Human Services on his questions about the China Virus.  Senator- you won’t get a peep from either the NIH or HHS.  Next, brave scientists are calling for investigations into various ‘scientific journals’ that dismissed the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab leak theory.’  Excellent.  ‘Follow the science,’ folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris apparently trying to force a far-left agenda into the American economic system.  Not good, folks, not good.  Next- and this is the best one of the day- senile old Joe Biden is encouraging Americans to report radicalized family members, friends, and neighbors to the authorities so the RACE POLICE can swoop in and spirit them away in the dead of night to one of their black site secret prisons.  This smacks of the Gestapo’s Nacht und Nebel policy by which political dissidents disappeared during the dark of night.  Wow.   Meanwhile, the Biden regime releases its first list of top diplomatic nominees for overseas deployment.  Wonder where Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel will go?  Japan doesn’t want the POS.  Finally, Joe Biden is reversing yet another Trump Era policy by providing increased protections to tranny students, i.e., mostly ‘chicks with dicks’ students, what we used to call ‘exotics.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News– When reporters asked fumbling Joe Biden if he STILL THOUGHT that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a ‘killer,’ the usurper in the White House did his best “Kooky Kamala” Harris imitation and broke out in maniacal laughter before forgetting the question.  Friends, this is embarrassing to have a mentally-incapacitated dimwit in the White House.  This is, indeed, the SHAME of our country.  Speaking of our national embarrassment, Joe Biden claims to have given President Putin the ‘what for’ during their short meeting.  Question: when everyone returns to the United States, will the U.S. Congress demand that Joe’s interpreters appear before congressional committees and tell the lawmakers what was really said and how poorly Joe’s performance was?[xxiv]  Remember, after President Donald J. Trump met with his Russian counterpart, Democrats were demanding the interpreters testify to exactly what was said during the two leaders’ private meeting.  (Note- we don’t expect this will ever happen).
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger feeling intense heat down his backside is now going to investigate the missing ballots transfer documents and chain of custody.  From what we hear, there were more illegal ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, than anywhere else in the state and it’s clear that if an HONEST and IMPARTIAL audit is conducted, we will learn the truth.  We await more information…
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– New reports suggest that law enforcement recruitment is way, way down, while retirements are skyrocketing.  We imagine many law enforcement officers could find employment in Arizona and Texas, especially if those two states are going to continue fortifying their frontiers and creating their own statewide border patrols.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– New York City finds itself being consumed by a self-made problem: in midtown Manhattan, tens of thousands of ‘urban outdoorsmen’ have set up tent cities.  Wow.  Next, the House GOP seeks a review of BIG TECH’S close ties to the Chi-Coms.   In other news, Texas Democrats are launching a last-ditch effort to stop the Constitutional Carry Bill becoming the law of the Lone Star State.  Screw the little wimps. Elsewhere, Chicago Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot is seeking to halt alcohol sales after midnight.  Uh, what will this accomplish?  People will buy their liquor at 11:59 P.M.   Finally, Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Madeleine Dean, 4th congressional district, is NOT going to seek the seat of outgoing RINO Senator Pat Toomey.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, proposes changes to Dem-backed voting bill newly renamed from the “For the People Act” to the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” which means it’s still the same old shit, repackaged, and returned to the shelf.  NO one buy this stinking piece of crap bill.  Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, working on behalf of the family of Ashli Babbitt says information on her shooting death at the U.S. Capitol Building during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, is difficult to come by.  He is seeking answer as to whom the Capitol Hill police officer who shot her dead is and the circumstances as to WHY he shot her, an unarmed woman, attempting to climb through a broken window.  Moving on, GOP House and Senate members return to Washington, D.C., to hold their weekly conference.  Republicans- how about this: how about demanding answers as to WTF the Capitol Hill protesters are still locked up, mostly in solitary confinement?  IF you don’t defend these people, one day, the government will come for you.[xxv]
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Noted UFO filmmaker Jeremy Corbell says that when the UFO report comes out later this month, it will reveal uncomfortable truths for the American people.  Mr. Corbell told Rob Schmitt on Newsmax that the New York Times has said that the report will leave out the possibility of the technology being seen is a secret U.S. military program much less a Chi-Com or Russian program.  That will leave us with but one simple truth: it’s from somewhere else, NOT of this Earth.  Look, if it were Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, or North Korean, do you think they would not already be ruling the planet?  Of course it’s from somewhere else and that means there is little to nothing we can do about it except await its arrival.  Elsewhere, SpaceX supposedly ignored an FAA warning regarding the launch of its Starship SN8 launch in December 2020.  We are sure Elon Musk had good reasons to blow off the FAA.
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Amazon.com has introduced its new surveillance system to grocery stores.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3569 with a $55 million jackpot on the line as well as the Powerball Draw #855 with a $40 million pot on the line.  Stay tuned for tonight’s results…okay, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 01, 06, 21, 38, 39, and Mega 10.  Out of 147,354 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $16,603 apiece.  The tickets were sold at (1) Shell in Visalia, CA 93277; (2) Sunrise Market and Gas, San Diego, CA, 92102; and (3) Ronnie’s Market and Deli, Stockton, CA 95204.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 19, 29, 34, 44, 50, and Powerball 25.  In California, out of 40,139 winning tickets, the highest winners were 21 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $555 apiece.
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Sports News– NBA star, point guard, Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns is in COVID-19 protocols at the moment.  Not sure as to when he will be able to return.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Observation of the Day– Friends, there is BUT ONE WAY to STOP the tidal wave of illegal aliens pouring across the southern border and that is, the GOP must make a tactical decision with which to aid the overall strategy in combatting Joe Biden’s crimes.  We must make the tactical effort to reach out to the illegal aliens who are here, to make it appear that we are going to bring them into OUR FOLD.  We must make the Democrats believe we are recruiting illegals to become future GOP voters like the Democrats recruit children for immoral purposes.  We must enlist, recruit, and dragoon illegal aliens into becoming solid GOP members as once the Democrats realize they are losing on this battlefront, the trains, planes, buses, automobiles, and even empty freighters will be running 24/7/365 to get illegal aliens out of the country.  Once they begin shipping them out, we can throw the ones who helped us aboard those outbound modes of travel in the same way once the Indian Wars were over, General George Crook threw the Indian scouts onto the trains carrying the beaten Native Americans to the reservations.  It is a matter of saving the country so let’s make some tactical decisions NOW so our strategy can become reality at a future date.
  79. 2022 Thursday: Stick around and discover the events of the day along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  59. 2016 Wednesday: Young adult novelist Lois Duncan, author of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” dies at age 82.  Meanwhile, as Russian aggression intensifies in Ukraine, ministers from the European Union announce an increase in aid for the beleaguered Ukrainians.  Of course, whether the Europeans will deliver them offensive weapons or just meals-ready-to-eat remains to be seen. Elsewhere, crackpot Senator Chris Murphy, DS-CT, launches a filibuster on the floor of the U.S. Senate in an effort to ramrod comprehensive gun control through in the wake of the massacre at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  (Note- Senator Murphy, since the shooter was a radical jihadist who committed his life to ISIS, wouldn’t it make more sense to filibuster so NO more flipping Muslims enter the frigging country?  Dumbass liberals).

  62. 2019 Saturday: The sports memorabilia world lights its hair on fire as a baseball jersey belonging to the world’s greatest Babe Ruth brings in a record $5.64 million at auction in New York City.  Stunning!  Elsewhere, Chi-Com stooge Carrie Lam- chief executive of Hong Kong- announces the suspension of the new extradition law that would send FREE Hong Kongens to mainland China for trial.  The protests have ground Beijing’s rule of the former British crown colony into the dust.  (Note- several months later, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu would arrive that would help Xi Jinping kill two birds with one stone- Hong Kong freedom fighters and U.S. President Donald J. Trump.  F**king diabolical).
  63. 2020 Monday: Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone warlord RAZ changed the name of the new utopic socialized crap hole from CHAZ to CHOP: Capitol Hill Organized Protest.  There, people tremble in fear that they might be beaten and/or evicted at any time while Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin, CPUSA-WA, pays it little mind and Gov. Jay Inslee- a loser if one ever existed- acts as though he knows nothing about it, a la Sergeant Schultz.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr make it known that the pending ‘tell-all’ book by John “Perpetual War” Bolton in which, he attacks his former boss, the current president, has not gone through the normal processes and could be in violation of long-standing federal policy.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds civil rights for homosexuals.  It is what it is.  Finally, President Trump informed the world that he is moving ahead with his planned Oklahoma City rally this upcoming Saturday, June 20, 2020.  The left is wailing, gnashing its teeth but the commander-in-chief is correct when he says, ‘all the fears of the Chinese bat flu went out the window when people were out in the streets rioting over the death of George Floyd but oh, no, Trump can’t hold any rallies because we must not take the chance of getting the Wuhan Virus.  Oh, please.  Here is the deal: 800,000 people have sought tickets to the 20,000-seat arena.  Period.  Joe Biden cannot match that.  
  64. 2020 Monday A: Speaking of the Chinese Bat Virus, the one comrade Xi dispatched to the rest of the world, here are today’s stats, world first: 7,965,453 confirmed cases, 434,432 confirmed deaths, and 3,809,566 confirmed recoveries.   Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,148,380 confirmed cases, 117,700 confirmed deaths, and 662,226 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are today’s stats, Golden State first: 151,452 confirmed cases, 5,089 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the numbers: 728 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 629 confirmed recoveries.  Finally in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 26,067 confirmed cases, 1,220 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

  66. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 297,795 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 161,854 deaths  
  67. 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: 3,804,748 confirmed cases, 63,203 confirmed deaths, and 2,065,912 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,351,726 confirmed cases, 37,393 confirmed deaths, and 2,124,674 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,067 confirmed cases, 506 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 447,658 confirmed cases, 5,840 confirmed deaths (DOWN), and 220,096 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Arkansas: they have 344,067 confirmed cases, 5,863 confirmed deaths, and 336,107 confirmed recoveries. [ix]

  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.226 per gallon, $2.966 in Florida, $3.972 in Hawaii, and $3.621 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Michigan: $3.162.  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- Zambia: $3.673 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,410,267,967,104 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Cayman Islands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xviii]
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 84 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘sofa,’ to be in charge of the border and to continue being a no-show.  How is it this woman still maintains this ‘job’ much less continues to serve as the faux vice president of the United States.  Hurry up with the election audits so we can boot this woman who schlepped her way to the top along with her boss out of office.  Enough is enough.  Speaking of “Kooky Kamala,” Democrats and Republicans alike are blasting her for taking selfies at a South Carolina vaccination center when she should be down at the border halting the tidal wave of illegal aliens from the Third World.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News releases the latest updates as to ILLEGAL ALIENS DATA.  First, the cost of caring for all these Untermensch as of today is $533,130,528.  Second, the cost so far this year of handling the illegal alien tsunami for 2021 is $181,355,085,824.  Third, the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year is 1,858,744 while fourth, the total number of illegal aliens estimated to be in the U.S. is 35,858,744.  Since the inception of our original blog site back in 2009, we have speculated that the number of illegals back then was anywhere between 35-to-50 million.  Now, we believe the number is closer to 75-to-100 million.  Let’s begin rounding them up, inserting microchips next to their hearts, and then booting them out of the country as quickly as possible.  We need Donald Trump to come back NOW.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In advance of the ‘Joe Biden’-Vladimir Putin summit tomorrow, Joe Biden says that he is going to ‘warn’ Putin in a conversation that could last up to five hours (which is bull crap- no way Joe can do it.  However, we expect that once in the room with their interpreters, Putin actually will be discussing issues with Joe Biden’s earpiece which most likely contains the voice of former regime leader Barack Hussein Obama).   Ahead of their summit, Putin says that Joe has much for which to answer when it comes as to WHY more than 450 people are languishing in D.C. lockups for their part in January 06, 2021, and WHY Ashli Babbitt was shot dead by a police officer.  In essence, what Putin is saying, is ‘look in the mirror at yourselves before you begin pointing the finger at us.’  (Note- we expect some issue will arise that will cancel the Obama-Putin Summit so Joe does not embarrass himself and our country.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II–  News arose today that suggests that Vladimir Putin will soon be annexing Belarus to the new Russian empire just as they continue applying pressure upon the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania and continue their war of aggression against Ukraine.  Meanwhile, patriotic Israelis stage a massive march through East Jerusalem as the new liberal government sends out legions of police to keep the ‘radicals’ in line.  These people are NOT radicals and Jerusalem- ALL OF IT- belongs to the Israeli people because God gave them the land more than 3,00 years ago in a covenant between Yahweh and His Chosen People.  March every day!  Regarding Israel, the Israeli Air Force had to strike some targets in Gaza after the criminal Palestinians launched a barrage of incendiary balloons across the border into Israel.  The Israeli fire authorities report the bottom-feeding rabble in Gaza ignited at least 20 fires.  Light ‘em up, Israel, light ‘em up.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Foreign News / Overseas News III-Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms sent 28 warplanes- including nuclear-capable bombers and fighters- into Taiwanese airspace in the largest show of force to date.  We hope Taiwan continues beefing up its defenses because in the coming war between the forces of the modern-day Chi-Com Nazis and the freedom-loving people of Free China- Taiwan- there is but one place to stand: on the side of free people.  We should have nuked the Chi-Coms back in 1950.  (Note- communist China expert Gordon Chang says Beijing’s military exercises are no ‘coincidence’).  Finally, Israeli ex-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says that ‘ignorant’ Ilhan Omar is ‘not worthy’ to be in Congress.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– New evidence continues to arise that shows what most Americans already know: COVID-19 was already in the U.S. by Christmas 2019.  (Note- the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges took care of one another’s problems: COVID-19 allowed the Chi-Coms to end the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong while the disease allowed the Democrats to get rid of President Donald J. Trump and to vilify his supporters by setting the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, into action.   In so doing, it permitted both to get rid of their enemies and to allow each one to cover for the other.  The capstone is that Vladimir Putin can now lambaste drooling Joe Biden for keeping the people locked up while hiding the identity of the cop who shot Ashli Babbitt.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II-In other Chi-Vi-related news, former CDC Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘arrogance’ of the Chi-Com scientists may have led to the disaster of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic destabilizing the world.  Finally, thanks to Red State’s brave reporting, we continue learning the truth that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic was indeed cooked up like methamphetamine in the Wuhan Institute of Virology for use as a biowarfare weapons.  If their stats are correct, the reason the Chi-Coms’ numbers are so low is that they were prepared for it in advance.
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– President Donald J. Trump continues ramping up pressure on the Keystone State to conduct an Arizona-style 2020 Election audit.
  79. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– GOP lawmakers seek to defund schools using the bogus and racist 1619 Project in its educational regimen.  Good.  In other news, Robert Bork Jr. says that ‘his father would be appalled that ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden is president.  Of course when Biden was on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, he eviscerated Bork’s father who was up for a SCOTUS nomination.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launches a new PAC with which to help worthy candidates in the fight to reclaim the U.S. House and Senate in 2022.  Moving on, it’s official: the GOP have introduced a bill to fire Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci for his mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis as well as his potential enrichment from his mistakes.
  80. 2021 Tuesday O: Business News– Wall Street ends DOWN over investor fears in anticipation of the coming report from the Federal Reserve.  In other business news, Southwest Airlines has had to cancel more than 1,000 flights due to technical issues but we think they were ‘hacked.’  Everyone else is so why not them?
  81. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas returns from a trip to Mexico.  We suspect he went there to clean up the mess made by ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris who takes nothing seriously but laughs at everything like the yammering jackal she is.  In other news, ‘Joe Biden’s’ proposed budget is $6 trillion, which will drive the U.S. deficit to the moon.  The senile old fool’s handlers are going to drive taxes up on the American people.  This is insanity, it’s akin to King John crushing the people and Robin Hood fighting back on behalf of the people.  In other regime news, Joe Biden wants to spend $100 million ANNUALLY to combat domestic terrorism.
  82. 2021 Tuesday Q: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– While conducting a turtle-nesting study in Florida, researchers come across $1.2 million worth of cocaine.   Next, the U.S. Department of Justice seeks to reinstate the death penalty against Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  Elsewhere, a judge rules that Harvey Weinstein can be sent to California to face a rape charge in the Golden State.
  83. 2021 Tuesday R: National Security News– Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel show that government documents reveal that there were numerous FBI agents involved in the events of January 06, 2021, ‘unindicted co-conspirators’ who helped organize the protests that day and then participated in leading them into the Capitol Building.  We have said countless times that what happened on January 06, 2021, was the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION carried out in the history of our country so as to bring down President Donald J. Trump, vilify his supporters, and then to place a Chi-Com-backed stooge into the White House.  This only reinforces what we believe and what we have been saying for months now.
  84. 2021 Tuesday S: Big Tech News– “Little Mark” Zuckerberg made one of the biggest (and stupidest) mistakes of his life when he tried to buy rights to Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2” for an undisclosed massive amount of money.  Roger Waters, creative fire behind the British band and writer of most of its songs said, ‘there is no F***ing way I am going to allow a F***ing POS like Zuckerberg to use MY song so he can brainwash young people.’  A supporter of Julian Assange, Waters the song was as important back then as it is now especially since Facebook is rapidly becoming a Big Brother-like entity spying on people around the globe, sucking up their data, and then doing its damnedest to control their minds.  God bless you, Roger; it’s good to know patriots and freedom fighters still exist.  As for Zuck, well, he can go F*** himself in the ass.
  85. 2021 Tuesday T: Religion News– U.S. Roman Catholic bishops are meeting to discuss the denying of communion to Pro-Death politicians.  The Holy Father Pope Francis ordered them NOT to deny communion to the abortion-loving, Marxist Democrats because in our view, Francis is a Marxist, too, and unfit to lead the church.  We hope the bishops excommunicate ALL Pro-Death politicians from the church.  Let them languish in Limbo.
  86. 2021 Tuesday U: Health and Medical Alerts– A new study reports that for about one-quarter of all survivors of the Chi-Vi, they develop other, much more chronic issues down the road.  The Chi-Coms claim their pandemic did not originate in their biowarfare program but folks, every scrap of news we hear connected to the ‘VID tells us one thing and one thing only: the Chi-Coms cooked this crap up and then infected the rest of the world.   E-V-I-L.
  87. 2021 Tuesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, she with the lopsided breasts, says that the House will proceed with its ‘investigation’ into the (FALSE FLAG OPERATION) of January 06, 2021.  As we all recall, the crowd of peaceful Trump supporters was infiltrated by Antifa thugs and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter.  The rest as they say is ‘history.’  In other House news, loser Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district says that has unlimited power to spy on the American people and to seize any records he so desires even as he raises a stink about the Bill Barr DOJ’s subpoenas for phone records belonging to Democrat lawmakers.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is pushing ‘Mumbles” Pelosi to strip Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MI 5th congressional district, of her seat on the House Intel Committee because of her hatred of Israel and her love of all things ‘jihad.’
  88. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to take the seat of now-Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.  A likely future nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court- should “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden stick around long enough to get to nominate a pick- Jackson was confirmed by a vote of 53-44.  In other U.S. Senate news, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says that ‘Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management- Tracy Stone-Manning- should be booted over her support or involvement in past acts of eco-terrorism.  The Democrats NEVER possess a scrap of shame for their crazed, left-wing, Marxist actions.  Shame.  Elsewhere, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says ‘U.S. servicemembers are complaining about the overly WOKE Pentagon’s policies.’  Amen.  As they should… He is also concerned that the Chi-Coms will be harvesting the DNA of Olympians at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.  Finally, the Senate Judiciary Committee is debating the House Bill H.R. 6 that will grant amnesty and citizenship to 3 million frigging illegal aliens without determining whether there are thugs and rapists among them.  (Note- the Democrats truly hate the people they lead).
  89. 2021 Tuesday X: U.S. Senate News II– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY, says that there must be grave consequences for the purposeful leaking of a person’s tax records.  Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” he says there is NO WAY that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden will get someone onto the U.S. Supreme Court in 2024.  Another denizen of the U.S. Senate, Senator “Cho-Mo Bob” Menendez, DS-NJ, says that ‘Joe Biden must treat Vladimir Putin like the ‘killer’ he is.  Good for you, Bob, good for you.  Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘the Biden regime’s blanket amnesty covers dangerous criminals, too.’
  90. 2021 Tuesday Y: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump names Liz Harrington as his new spokesperson as Jason Miller is taking over as the CEO of a new tech start-up company.  The company owns one of the social media platforms the 45th president is considering appropriating with which to get his message out to the American people and his supporters around the world.
  91. 2021 Tuesday Z: Economic News– A new Trafalgar poll says that MORE Americans blame ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden than they do President Donald J. Trump for the rising inflation now afflicting the country.
  92. 2021 Tuesday AA: Environmental News I– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows calls the G7 Summit’s agreement on ‘climate change actions’ a terrible deal.
  93. 2021 Tuesday BB: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, sends a powerful message to the laughing hyena ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris when he tells her the ‘border crisis is no laughing matter.’  The Lone Star State’s governor is going to seek contributions so that his state can continue building the wall to halt the ongoing flow of millions of ravenous illegal aliens roaring over the Southwest frontier like a cloud of locusts.  The state is also encouraging all states who can spare law enforcement officers to send them to Texas to help guard the frontier.  Governor Abbott- where can we send the checks?  (Note- all the cops run out of cities that won’t support them will be heading to Texas and Arizona, we suspect).  However, a government watchdog says, ‘Joe Biden’s halt of wall construction does not violate U.S. law.’ Speaking of Governor Abbott, President Donald J. Trump has accepted his invitation to tour the southern border with him and other officials on the last Wednesday at the end of the month.
  94. 2021 Tuesday CC: Observation of the Day– IF the United States was filled with as many WHITE SUPREMACISTS as Democrats claim, don’t you think it strange that during the eight years of the ‘first black president,’ no one- especially NO WHITE PERSON- ever tried to assassinate him?  The Secret Service isn’t that good.  However, had someone tried- or worse- had the Democrats conducted a FALSE FLAG OPERATION whereby they picked some random loser and had him or her make an attempt on the life of the 44th president, can you imagine the political bludgeoning they could have carried out on ‘white males?’  We will say this: it should be clear that true political violence is no longer a problem in this country whereas mob violence at street level is.  But in a nation that saw Presidents Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy shot dead as well as two attempts on the life on President Gerald R. Ford and the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan, no attempt on the life of an American president has occurred in 41 years.  In the last century, we saw the assassinations of Senator Robert F. Kennedy as well as that of famed civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. but no attempts on three highly popular/unpopular presidents depending upon whom you ask- George W. Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, and Donald J. Trump- since the turn of the century tells us one thing.  Much of the violence we see is ginned up by the left and what’s clear is, we believe that the left was trying to gin up someone among their ranks to do the unthinkable to President Trump yet were unable to find a fall guy or worse- coerce a patsy- into carrying out their loony-tunes agenda of vilification followed by violence.  No, we say, ‘WHITE SUPREMACISM’ no longer is around but there sure is a whole lotta ‘BLACK SUPREMACISM’ afflicting our country like cancer gobbling away at one’s privates.  Let’s do something to end this stupidity.   Democrats, can we set RACE ATTACKS aside?  This is going to destroy our country and even worse, you pathetic bottom-feeding scumbags know it and yet you persist.  Let me know what you think.  Thank you- Chef Vicky.
  95. 2021 Tuesday DD: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1668 with a $30 million pot on the line.  18, 22, 27, 38, 52, and Mega 11.  Out of 50,948 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $383 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

It is a shame to watch a band undergoing problems, but such was the agonizing lot of the Beach Boys: Familial friction, inner family turmoil, and the picking and choosing of sides of one, two, or three against the others- along with managers, outside family members, even hangers-on- was causing the much-beloved band to disintegrate before the eyes of their fans.  Thus, we find Carl Wilson the second Wilson Brother to launch a solo career: “Carl Wilson,” an album that came out on March 27, 1981.  Carl was always a strong songwriter once he got going and was always a glorious collaborator with others.  This album is a good one, one that highlights the artist’s multiple musical abilities and vocal talents.  The album features Carl (vocals, guitars, keyboards), J.W. Guercio (bass, guitars, vocals), Gerald Johnson (bass), James Stroud (drums, percussion), as well as several others.  We hope you will investigate this one to your liking and that perhaps you will add it to your growing collection of nothing but the best in music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  71. 2021 Monday Memorial Day F: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information–  Yesterday- and it must have been painful for him to say it- ABC’s Jon Karl said that ‘even if President Donald J. Trump says it does not mean it’s a lie.’  He was referring to President Trump placing the blame for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu squarely where it lays- on the Chi-Coms in general and the Wuhan Institute of Virology in particular.   Next, a California café owner has initiated a fee for anyone choosing to wear a mask in the establishment.   Moving on, the Biden regime is sending one million doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to our South Korean allies.  Finally, the World Health Organization is studying reforms with which to strengthen the organization- cut the Chi-Coms out of it, that will work wonders.
  72. 2021 Monday Memorial Day G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Joe Biden is naming Caroline Kennedy to become U.S. ambassador to Australia.  (Note- better than Rahm Emanuel).  Next, U.S. intel reports that two Iranian vessels may be bound for Venezuela, a country where they are not supposed to visit.   Meanwhile, a former U.S. Marine is being sought by the Spanish government over his breaking into the North Korean embassy.  The Biden administration is weighing sending him to the Spaniards who may then send him to North Korea.  Speaking of North Korea, their government is slamming Joe Biden’s lifting of missile development restrictions on South Korea as being ‘hostile U.S. policy.’  Finally, Israeli Defense Forces head Benny Gantz is fearful over the possibility of assassination or civil war breaking out over the possible end of Benjamin Netanyahu’s time as head of state.
  73. 2021 Monday Memorial Day H: Political News I– Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, has created a new website for whistleblowers in the U.S. military to expose the WOKE bull crap occurring within their ranks.  Next, following a walk-out by the Democrats at the state house in Texas, Governor Greg Abbott, GOP, is going to halt their paychecks.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo sparks 2024 rumors what with a trip to Iowa.   In other utterly disturbing news, Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, has vetoed 22 bills including election security and anti-Critical Race Theory bills.  And you had questions about this loser being a RINO…

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.

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 ninety-nine 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.

  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!

  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

  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.

  59. 2015 Monday: According to Brainy History, Ehud Olmert, former prime minister of Israel, is sentenced to eight months in prison after new evidence emerges proving corruption charges for which he had been acquitted three years ago.  Israeli politics seem to be pretty tough over there what with trying to send its leaders to jail.  WTF?
  60. 2016 Wednesday: Southern Europe is in the throes of crisis as the tidal wave of ‘migrants’ continues trying to make it to Italy and other points in the Mediterranean Sea.  Off the coast of Libya, an overloaded boat full of ‘refugees’ capsizes leading to at least five drownings.  The Italian navy scoops out another 562 swimmers and takes them to shore.  (Note- it’s becoming time to start sowing mines off the coast of Libya).

  63. 2019 Saturday: A powerful twister roars through the town of El Reno, Oklahoma, killing at least two and injuring numerous others.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump goes around Congress to make sure a multi-billion-dollar sale of arms to Saudi Arabia occurs.  Democrats are angry at this because they want to deny the Saudis the weapons with which to defend themselves from the Iranians because they are still pissed off over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.
  64. 2020 Memorial Day Monday: Failed New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, releases a 51-page edict outlining how the state will reopen in the event COVID-19- communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ which is sad.  The (former) Empire State will never be the same what with a constant stream of middle-and-upper-middle class citizens leaving for elsewhere.  Here are the statistics for the Wuhan Virus for today, first the globe: 5,490,954 confirmed cases, 345,962 confirmed deaths, but 2,228,952 confirmed recoveries which is amazing and a good sign.
  65. 2020 Memorial Day Monday A: Here are the statistics for the United States: 1,696,874 confirmed cases, 99,459 confirmed deaths, but 352,612 confirmed recoveries which would resemble the percentage of the globe IF the various Blue State governors would be honest and present the numbers of recoveries, but they won’t.  They seek to keep things locked down which in our view is criminal: it demonstrates the COLLUSION between the Democratic Party and their communist Chinese taskmasters in Beijing and here in our country.  We must thwart them. 
  66. 2020 Memorial Day Monday B: In the three states in which the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the numbers, California first: 94,558 confirmed cases, 3,785 confirmed deaths, BUT NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries which demonstrates the scumbag Gov. Gavin Newsom KNOWS that if he shared them, NO one would obey his stay-at-home orders.  In Hawaii, here are the figures: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 591 confirmed recoveries for which, we must thank Gov. David Ige for his honesty.  Finally, in Washington state where whacked-out Governor Jay Inslee holds power (people, vote this baboon out!), here are the stats: 20,065 confirmed cases, 1,070 confirmed deaths, and sadly, like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  You know, Washington was once a wonderful state but now- in the grip of Democrats- languishes in the throes of Democratic-Socialism!  Free California!  Free Washington!  Free Tibet!  Free Hong Kong!  Free Macau!  Free and independent Taiwan (until they liberate the mainland)!  Free from Democratic-Socialism and Communism!
  67. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet As A Whole: 168,514,195 confirmed cases, +3,377, 3,499,505  confirmed deaths, +267 and 150,112,274 confirmed recoveries, +80,205.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,947,189 confirmed cases, UP 32,100 from yesterday’s reporting, 605,208 confirmed deaths, UP 904,[ix] and 27,606,442 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,997.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[x]   
  68. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, There Have Been 288,596 CHI-VI Deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 171,013 deaths  
  69. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,780,101 confirmed cases, 62,984 confirmed deaths, and 2,021,886 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,313,815 confirmed cases, 36,581 confirmed deaths, and 1,929,132 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 35,924 confirmed cases, 496 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 432,993 confirmed cases, 5,780 confirmed deaths, and 211,014 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Jersey: they have 1,014,579 confirmed cases, 26,125 confirmed deaths, and 873,637 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  70. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,389 confirmed cases, 6,406 confirmed deaths, and 832,523 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Uzbekistan, a former part of the old Soviet Union: 98,849 cases of the virus, 94,385 confirmed deaths and 96,666 confirmed recoveries.[xii]     
  71. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,312.46, DOWN 81.52 points (-0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,657.17, DOWN 4.00 points (-0.029%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.13, DOWN 8.92 points (-0.21%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.99 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.12%).  The price of GOLD is $1,899.90 per troy oz., +1.90 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $28.12 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,196.20 per troy oz, -0.70 (-0.06%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, 0.00 (+0.09%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,770.60 per troy oz, +42.37 (+1.55%).[xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $27,250.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-1.80%).[xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.41 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Belarusian Ruble, one greenback equals 2.51 and in Belize Dollars, a buck equals 2.00 and in Bermudian Dollar, one dollar equals 1.00 of theirs.[xvi]   In other business news, Washington, D.C., has launched an antitrust lawsuit against Amazon over their purported mistreatment of vendors.  Wow.   Meanwhile, rents have gone up by 1.9-percent, the highest rate in 10 years, while rents for single-family homes have gone up 4.3-percent from last year.  (Note- we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe the Chi-Coms will be buying up commercial and residential real estate using straw buyers so they can become the de facto landlords of the average American.  This is not right, and immediate action must be taken to drive these bat-eating scumbags out of everyday American life).  
  72. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.165 per gallon, $2.869 in Florida, $3.909 in Hawaii, and $3.562 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Virgin Islands: $3.239.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Liberia: $2.911 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,328,605,823,085 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– One year after the death of George Floyd, the American people reflect on his ‘life and times.’  Here is what the majority of the chef-bloggers at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe: George Floyd was a thug[xx] and had he not continued scuffling with the police but had complied with their commands, he would be alive today.  Maybe he would be doing time in the county jail, but he would be alive today.  When stopped by the cops and you are as high as hell and tried to pass a counterfeit $20 bill, do what the hell the cops instruct you to do, and you will most likely survive the interaction.  Period.   We are sorry that Mr. Floyd behaved like a dimwit but man, oh man, did his family (and the Democratic Party) profit from his demise.  Tragic.  Meanwhile, drooling Joe Biden hosted Mr. Floyd’s family at the White House demanding that lawmakers pass the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act 2021- H.R. 1280- NOW.  Such is Democrats pandering to identity politics.
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day #64 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be doing something about the southern border calamity and yet, she has yet to visit, and nothing is being done.  The floodgates are open, the vermin are swarming out of Third World sewers and overwhelming the United States.  (Note- we always suggest watching the ORIGINAL- and not the PC sanitized- version of “Red Dawn,” (1984).  About midway through the movie, you will see how the United States fell under assault by the Russians and Cubans- advance waves of millions of illegal aliens flooded into the country followed by troops from the two communist countries.  It is eye-opening.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– President Donald J. Trump congratulated himself on the roll out of the Chi-Vi vaccine.  Meanwhile, the Moderna Bat Flu vaccine has been approved for use by teenagers and could become available to teenaged Americans by early next month.   Elsewhere, after photos appeared showing Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer enjoying the good life at the Landshark Bar and Grill in East Lansing, Michigan came to light- the horrible chief executive of a once-lovely state is facing growing blowback.  People in her state are chafing under a soul-crushing lockdown while the rectangular-headed bozo governor can go out and have a celebration in public much like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom in California did a few months back at the famed French Laundry.  Remove this authoritarian skank from office NOW.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump slammed the pink panties-wearing Joe Scarborough of ‘Morning Joe’ infamy today for being a political hack.  Next, Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office George P. Bush talks to President Trump about political options for the Lone Star State- he is thinking of running against current Attorney General Ken Paxton.  Speaking of Texas, the state’s legislature has passed the “Star-Spangled Banner” Bill; it awaits the signature of Republican Governor Greg Abbott.  Elsewhere, Congressman Brad Wenstrup, R-OH 2nd congressional district, told Newsmax that Joe Biden’s reluctance to confront the Chi-Coms is ‘unfair to all mankind.’  (Note- we have said this before- the Chi-Coms are the National Socialists of the 21st century as they have (1) territorial ambitions (2) are more fascists now than communists and (3) have concentration and slave labor/death camps for ethnic and religious minorities as well as other undesirables (in their eyes).   They are an ‘Asian version’ of the Nazis.  How soon before they add swastikas to their flags?).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News II– The FBI is investigating a suspicious package that some liberal lunatic sent to Senator Rand Paul, R-KY.  Next, the Senate GOP appears ready to employ the filibuster against the bogus January 06, 2021 ‘Commission’ in which, the Democrats will try- once again- to impeach President Donald J. Trump and to sully other Republicans if they can over the FALSE FLAG OPERATION that occurred on that fateful day.   We believe the American people are becoming much more aware that what we saw on January 06, 2021, was a well-orchestrated theatrical production designed to do exactly what it accomplished: force the reluctant Republicans into not questioning all the fraudulent and corrupt activities on and around Election Day and 2020 and to certify the election.[xxi]
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News III– Zack Smith, legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, said today that ‘D.C. statehood requires a constitutional amendment to become reality.’  We concur- the District of Columbia was NEVER meant to be a state and anyone who claims otherwise must go back and retake civics as well as to open their eyes.  If the denizens of the nation’s capital want ‘full rights,’ the land on which everything sits- other than actual government buildings- should be returned to the states that offered up portions of their territories in the first place.  Problem solved.   Meanwhile, the Senate GOP is offering up a compromise on Joe Biden’s ‘infrastructure package’ of nearly $1 trillion but only for actual infrastructure.   Elsewhere, ex-White House counsel under President Donald J. 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.

[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.

  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.

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.

Security Council as it was before the communist takeover.

  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.
