  55. 2017 Thursday: According to On This Day, scientists at Cal-Tech publish an article in the journal, “Current Biology,” of the first brainless animal, the jellyfish Cassiopeia, that actually ‘sleeps.’  Most scientists believe that only animals gifted with brains sleep, as it is a normal function for creatures with thought processes.
  56. 2018 Friday: Trembling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford offers to testify before the U.S. Senate on the allegations of rape and sexual abuse she launched against President Donald J. Trump’s second U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  It would later turn out that she was a liar as were other women- most notably those turned up (or out) by thug attorney, Michael Avenatti.  It was all a scheme to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation and drive him from the nomination.  It didn’t work.
  57. 2019 Saturday: In Indonesia’s Jambi Province, skies go bright red as the worst illegal forest fires since 2015 blaze away, destroying more than 800,000 acres and causing respiratory distress for more than a million citizens.  They need Smokey the Bear. 
  58. 2020 Monday: Tropical Storm Beta is expected to attain hurricane status when it arrives on the Texas gulf coast at some point late today/early tomorrow.  Meanwhile, outside Los Angeles, the Bobcat Fire doubles in size thanks to warm winds breathing new life into it.  Next, on the other side of the country, New York City Transit officials say yesterday’s derailment of a subway train occurred due to vandalism.  No one was hurt but it’s clear that Antifa/Black Lives Matter is extending its reach when it comes to terrorism. 
  59. 2020 Monday A: Moving on, the Biden-Harris (or is it Harris-Biden) 2020 campaign announces it has $466 million in its coffers, having pulled in more than $100 million in the previous 48 hours by milking the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whereas the Trump-Pence campaign as $325 million on hand.  Speaking of President Trump and Justice Ginsburg, the commander-in-chief announces he will nominate his replacement pick for Justice Ginsburg on Thursday or Friday of this week.  All the while, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi promises to impeach President Trump- again!- should he fulfill his constitutional duty to nominate someone to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.   Meanwhile, well-known genius Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC says that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, moves forward with hearings on the nominee, that he ‘is playing with fire.’  Yikes.
  60. 2020 Monday B: Speaking of angry Democrats, the Dems say they are going to (1) end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate on EVERYTHING meaning every vote will be decided by the nuclear option, 50-percent plus one.  (2) They will give statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columba.  Why not give statehood to the U.S. Virgin Islands, to Guam, to Northern Marianas Islands, and to American Samoa.  (3) They plan to stack the Supreme Court with an additional five to seven justices.  (4) They plan to topple the Electoral College.  (5) They plan to increase taxes by $3 TRILLION as well as to reimpose the Obamacare mandate, all the rules and regulations overturned and removed by the Trump administration, and jump back in to the JCPOA, the Paris Climate Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  (6) They are going to grant the franchise to prisoners serving time, to felons, and to 15-and-16-year-olds.  What more can we say?  We must crush this illegitimate, Chi-Com colluding political party.  It is us or them.
  61. 2020 Monday C: Famed NBA star and noted ‘genius’ LeBron “Full of Fecal Matter” James of the Los Angeles Lakers chides Lori Loughlin, actress, and her husband who must go to prison for having bribed the university of their daughter’s choice to get her in, for allowing Loughlin to choose the facility.  LeBron says ‘it ain’t right.’  Elsewhere, a survey finds that unless Chinese Virus relief issues are soon met, 60-percent of all restaurants will close their doors forever.  Imagine all the real estate the Chi-Coms will be buying via shadow companies, straw buyers, and of course, their Democratic Party hacks.
  62. 2020 Monday D: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr labels three cities in the United States as anarchist jurisdictions- New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, for permitting and enabling out-of-control riots, mob violence, looting, rape, robbery, arson, and murder.  The AG said: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest.  We cannot waste federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance.”  The federal government seeks to strip these cities who have crippled their law enforcement via defunding or reduction so as to force them back into line.  New York City currently receives about $7 billion annually from U.S. taxpayers.  This must stop. Strip Portland and Seattle of their funding, too, until they regain their senses, or the voters replace them.   
  63. 2020 Monday D: A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled today that mail-in election ballots can be counted for up to SIX DAYS post-Election Day so long as they are postmarked on Election Day.  Bret Baier on FNC believes this will go to the Supreme Court to be overturned or put into law.  Meanwhile, President Trump is on the trail in the Midwest, stopping in Ohio and traveling elsewhere while “Pro-China Joe” Biden visited Wisconsin, there to try to re-energize his flagging base.  Question is, WHO is the real string-puller behind former VP Biden?  We suspect it’s none other than Xi Jinping and that Rep. James Clyburn is the conduit through which the alleged cash flow goes.  Think about it: Biden was at the bottom of the Democrats’ heap until Clyburn vouched for him, impeachment failed, the U.S.-Sino Trade Deal signed and then the Chi-Com Flu arrived on scene.  We don’t believe in coincidences nor should YOU.

  74. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– A report says that another 6,000 Haitians are tramping north through Mexico to Bidenville under the Del Rio, Texas, overpass.  This sounds like a job for napalm.  Just saying.  Anyhow, violence is breaking out in towns in their path as the Haitians fight one another to get on any available transportation north.  Here are the numbers from One America News for today.  First, here is the cost for caring for the invaders for just this day: $533,574,040.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for Joe Biden’s new citizens: $288,752,762,880.  Here are the numbers of illegals who have swarmed across the U.S.-Mexico border for 2021: 2,959,484.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, mind you, of the illegals lurking in the country as you read this: 36,959,484.  We believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Speaking of this disaster, today is Day No. 180 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 87 since she visited the border.  Where can we get a ‘no-show job’ like the one this loser has?  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says of Joe Biden that he ‘doesn’t even pretend on the border’ meaning he does not tell us everything is good and well when every American sees it for him-or-herself on live TV.  As the border continues its implosion, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today and said of his border policies that they are ‘ridiculous.’  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, calls the lack of a sound policy, “Insane.”
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Russian President Vladimir Putin won’t be coming to New York City to attend the U.N. General Assembly.  No, he will get his message across via diplomatic channels.  Speaking of Russia, we learned today that the Federal Bureau of Investigation delayed helping the victims of the recent Russian hacking attacks.  The question is, “WHY?”  Next Portugal has granted the Afghan girls’ soccer team asylum as their home country continues to implode under Islamism.  Meanwhile, up in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- son of one of the Rolling Stones- manages to cling to power at the head of a minute minority drastically weakened by his ignorant policies.  To get things done, the communist PM will have to engage with other political parties.  This should be fun.
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.92 (2) AstraZeneca $59.13 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.53 (4) BioNTech $341.35 (5) Moderna $434.04.  Even as the FDA says there is NO need for Chi-Vi booster shots, Johnson & Johnson now claims that their new booster shot is ’94-percent effective.’  How can they claim this when their original shot was down in the mid-forties?  There has not been enough time for them even to know so we encourage everyone to avoid the Johnson & Johnson shots as if their lives depended upon it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.11 (2) General Dynamics: $191.19 (3) Boeing: $208.51 (4) Lockheed Martin: $336.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $345.14.

  80. 2021 Tuesday L: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.23 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $62.78 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $26.85.
  81. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I- Joe Biden delivered a canned speech to the United Nations today.  It would appear he took some of his anti-senility medicine, some of son Hunter’s crack as he was able to get through it without completely breaking down.  He called on world leaders to ‘pull together to solve global problems’ all the while giving them the nod-nod, wink-wink to send Third World castoffs to invade the United States.  Speaking of feeble Joe, a new poll shows that 62-percent of Iowans think that Joe is doing a horrible job.  Add to that the fact that the House Dems are seeking to limit the poor old fool’s presidential powers.  You know, the Dems would love to transform the presidency into a prime ministerial gig.
  82. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joy of joys!  The White House is rolling a new plan with which to combat homelessness.  Wow.  Meanwhile, as the various multi-trillion bills continue bumping up against the deadlines, the House Dems throw Joe Biden a bone by passing a stopgap spending bill that will keep the American government open until December 01, 2021.  Wow.   In other shocking news, the House Dems stripped funding from the bills they are trying to shove through to Joe Biden’s desk that will go to helping Israel protect itself with the Iron Dome missile defense system.
  83. 2021 Tuesday O: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- A Customs and Border Patrol officer who attended the Justice for January 6 rally won’t be charged.  Still, Rep. Adam “Bug Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, says the committee charged with ‘investigating’ the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, could possibly go directly to sending out subpoenas which means they want to tarnish the reputations of many, patriotic Americans while continuing to vilify President Donald J. Trump.  Oooh, scary, “Bug Eyes.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Well-known government apparatchik and professor, Anthony Codevilla, died today at age 78.  He is best remembered over his strenuous objections to the life sentence imposed on Jonathan Pollard, the man who handed classified intelligence over to U.S. ally, Israel.  Pollard eventually was released on parole in 2015 and after fulfilling the obligations imposed upon him, he emigrated to Israel.
  85. 2021 Tuesday Q: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1696 what with a $x million jackpot on the line: 36, 41, 45, 51, 56, and Mega 13.  Out of 150,280 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,952 apiece.  In Washington state where Chef Vladdie lives, one person got all five numbers and the Mega for a prize of $432,000,000.
  86. 2022 Wednesday: Friends, whenever we call the Chi-Coms out our numbers tend to suffer but I am going to continue with my thoughts anyway on the outcome of a Chi-Com invasion of Taiwan.  Most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM tend to believe that Taiwan- FREE CHINA- is an undeclared nuclear power and why not?  Back on September 22, 1979, which is tomorrow, a U.S. satellite detected a double flash in the South Atlantic well below South Africa.  Most surmise it was a nuclear weapons test either by South Africa or Israel or possibly a joint operation.  We, however, believe Taiwan was the nation conducting the test and much evidence points in that direction.  It would make sense that a technologically superior Taiwan was working at building a clandestine nuclear weapons program because at some point in the future, the Chi-Coms would come-a-calling being the bullies that they are.  We suspect any approaching invasion fleet would find itself in deep trouble if underwater nukes were detonated several yards beneath the flotilla.  Virtually every vessel, submarine, and troop transport in the area would be swamped with tsunamis the likes of which the world has never witnessed.  Aircraft carriers, warships, transports, virtually an entire fleet would disappear along with every soldier, sailor, marine, and airman as did the Mongol fleet that disappeared in a massive tsunami while attempting to invade Japan centuries ago.  This would be enough to cause Xi Jinping and his cronies to be strung up in the streets and who knows?  Perhaps freedom would return to the mainland and peace in Asia ensue?  Sure, at some point the world needs to obliterate that overweight hog, Kim Jong-Un but that little POS is a piker compared to Chairman Xi, the wannabe world dictator.  Let me know your mind- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick delivered its next studio album- “Standing on the Edge”- on July 19, 1985.  The album featured their original producer Jack Douglas back at the control panel.  Once again, the band delivered a spirited group of rockers and of course their pop-ballads.  “Tonight, It’s You” received a great deal of airplay and is among the best tunes the band has ever done.  The lineup remains Robin Zander (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and Jon Brant (bass, backing vocals).  Joining the Illinois-based rockers is Mark Radice on keyboards.  We hope everyone will seek this album out at their favorite site for the absolute best in music because let’s face it: the AICPENDBLOG.COM offers nothing but the best in music.  You won’t find f**king Maroon 5, you won’t find twerking whores, you won’t find has-been lesbians, and you won’t find young men who aren’t sure as to whether they are men or chicks.  It is what it is and we thank you for joining us here daily.

  62. 2012 Monday: After a wave of violence engulfed Iraq yesterday, a suicide bombing in Kunduz, Afghanistan, claims the lives of at least 16 people and injures loads more.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, teachers walk out on strike leaving 350,000 students in dire need of being educated.  Oh, well, gives them more time to shoot one another in unnecessary violence.   Mayor Rahm Emanuel, where are you?
  63. 2013 Tuesday: In the Arctic Ocean, a mishap sends a Canadian Coast Guard helicopter plummeting, killing three of its crew.

  66. 2016 Saturday: Ahead of yet another failed ceasefire in Syria, concentrated airstrikes in the country kill dozens in rebel-held areas.  Meanwhile, an earthquake in Tanzania kills at least 11 people and injures numerous others.  Finally, French authorities announce they are going to launch an investigation into a woman identified ONLY as Ornella G. on charges of possible terrorism as she was found with a car loaded with cooking gas containers near the Notre Dame Cathedral- it’s interesting to note that on April 15, 2019, mysterious fires broke out in the famed cathedral destroying much of it.  On this incident, authorities remain mum.

  68. 2018 Monday: The secretary-general of the United Nations- Antonio Guterres- calls for an immediate summit on climate change, emphatically telling the General Assembly that ‘climate change is moving faster than we are.’  Follow the science, people: the Sun is the sole generator of ‘climate change’ across the Solar System on every planet that contains a ‘climate.’  Solar winds, solar flares, and sunspots are the main drivers behind whether it’s hotter or cooler so relax.  We can, of course, contend with pollution which, we should but stop scaring everyone. [x]   Elsewhere, California- another lunatic locale- passes a bill that will commit the state to carbon-free energy by 2045.  Two years later, the state is suffering rolling brown-and-blackouts and Sacramento has NO CLUE as what to do- that’s what you get for shutting down the state’s last nuclear power plant in El Diablo Canyon with NOTHING to take its place!
  69. 2019 Tuesday: After being crossed one too many times, President Donald J. Trump hands his third national security advisor John Bolton his walking papers.  We have no clue as to what happened to Mr. Bolton, he seemed to be a normal guy at one time whereas now, we see him for the conniving RINO he is, and a man determined to go to war with Iran whatever it takes and whatever the cost.  Didn’t you learn from Iraq, John?  Good riddance.
  70. 2020 Thursday:  Tonight, the NFL season kicks off in Kansas City where the 2020 Superbowl winners the Chiefs will do battle with the visiting Houston Texans.  No one is participating an exciting season what with all the promised Black Lives Matter protests.  Our view: we don’t care, we won’t be watching.  Elsewhere, last week, first-time jobless benefits claims hit 884 thousand.   As for the economy, we learn that for the 2nd quarter consumer spending was down 34.1-percent.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announced his list of potential SCOTUS nominees in his second term yesterday.  Here are the potential nominees: (1) Bridget Bade, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals; (2) Daniel Cameron, 51st Kentucky state AG; (3) Sen.

  71. 2020 Thursday A: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says that ‘Joe Biden is going to make a great president’ and that in eight weeks, the Senate will be in the hands of the Democrats and the numbers of Dems in the House will be insurmountable.  The speaker’s Aricept® must be working really well today for her to express such confidence but when 42-percent of likely black voters say they are going to vote for President Trump, the Democratic Party’s house is ablaze.  Keep being confident, Madam Speaker, going to be fun seeing what you have to say on November 4.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden has NO campaign events today after President Donald J. Trump blasted the old bigot for using a teleprompter to answer scripted questions.  Ai-yi-yi!  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he appeared before a massive crowd in Michigan today.  Stunning!

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 358,559 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 45,519 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xviii]        
  80. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.395 per gallon, $3.005 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.880 in Washington state. [xix]    Let us look at one other location- Arkansas: $2.848.  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- Yemen: $6.415 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,746,035,441,578 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after All Others, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Japan with $1,251,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 170 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 77 since her singular visit to the slowest section of the border.  What a job.  Next, here are the numbers of illegal aliens in the country as well as what they are costing us, cost first: $517,985,920 is the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders for just this day.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the illegal aliens for the year to date: $276,682,440,704.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed into the country this year: 2,835,773.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the total numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States: 36,835,772.  The news reported today that a new illegal alien caravan consisting of 14,000 Haitians, Cubans, and West Africans is forming up in Colombia waiting to cross into Panama.  Sounds like a job for napalm.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  82. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Vatican rejects Israeli criticism concerning Pope Francis’ ignorant comments on Jewish law.  Elsewhere, Australia- rapidly becoming a corrupt, criminal state is banning Ivermectin for off-label use in combatting the Dink-a-Link Fever.  What is wrong with these idiots in Australia?  Answer: just look at the ‘follow the money’ segments.  Speaking of overseas, as cases of the Delta variant skyrocket in Britain thanks to the Chi-Coms keeping this pandemic ongoing and causing problems, their economy is collapsing into the crapper.
  83. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– After Joe Biden giving Vladimir Putin the nod several months back, the Russians announce the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from the Baltic to Germany and says that if Ukraine wants the money to keep flowing, they had better begin showing Moscow some good will.  Speaking of the Russkies, they are accusing the United States of interfering in THEIR elections.  Wow.  Go figure.
  84. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Sadly for the Joe Biden regime, the creators of the COVID-19 booster shots say there may be NO need for them.  We knew that.  Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration official says the FDA is hopeful that kids under age 12 will soon be able to get COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots which will generate billions more dollars that will find their ways into the pockets of Deep State apparatchiks and elected officials.  Ah, the classic money-go-round is alive and well.
  85. 2021 Friday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Restrictions imposed by dictator Joe are being met with growing resistance.  Governors Greg Abbott, R-TX, and Ron DeSantis, R-FL, vow to fight tooth and nail against the unconstitutional edicts pouring out of the White House like fecal matter from a duck’s ass.  Florida and Texas are not the only two states fighting back against this senile dictator.  Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, South Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia are and by next Wednesday, California should be joining them in combatting this un-American, pro-communist regime.  We look for more states to climb aboard.  Joe Biden is slamming these brave governors as being ‘cavalier.’  Sadly, for the Biden regime, an appeals court has reinstated “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ ban on mask mandates in the Sunshine State’s schools.  Masks are optional and teachers’ unions need to STFU.
  86. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II– Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Unified School District is taking heat over their bogus Chi-Vi vaccine mandate requiring ALL students aged 12 and up to undergo vaccination whether they or their parents want them to or not.  American people, RESIST.  These people are using the pandemic to alter the way Americans live beyond the point of repair and we are NOT going to permit them to do this.  RESIST!
  87. 2021 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $45.59 (2) AstraZeneca $56.26 (3) Johnson & Johnson $166.97 (4) BioNTech $349.19 (5) Moderna $449.38.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $58.83 (3) Johnson & Johnson $175.04 (4) BioNTech $334.30 (5) Moderna $416.70.  We speculate the reason for the drop in some of the prices between this week and last week is that people are growing warier of the vaccines by the minute.  Hence, the push for more vaccines and more mandates.
  88. 2021 Friday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.00 (2) General Dynamics: $201.60 (3) Boeing: $210.30 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.88 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $354.10.  Here is what these stocks were worth a week ago today: (1) Raytheon: $83.65 (2) General Dynamics: $202.46 (3) Boeing: $218.17 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.00 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $365.93.
  89. 2021 Friday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.49 (3) Honeywell: $222.37 (4) 3M: $184.55 (5) Teijen: $1,666.00.  These companies are making money hand over fist.  We will keep you posted.
  90. 2021 Friday O: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.90 (2) Maple Leaf Farms-Tofurkey: $21.42.  This is the next big push.  We will continue developing it but the ‘meat is evil’ crowd is going to continue pushing for meatless meat which is not right.  We are drawing ever closer to Soylent Green-like sustenance.
  91. 2021 Friday P: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump released a new ad commemorating the jihadist terrorist attacks on New York City, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Thank you, Mr. President, thank you.   Next, President Trump also said that the ‘downside of a 2024 run for the White House is that he would be saving CNN.’
  92. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen to 39-percent with 49-percent disapproval and yet the pro-Beijing POS continues forging ahead with his plan to communize the United States.  Meanwhile, as the Biden regime continues waging war on ALL Trump appointees remaining in the government, Sean Spicer says it’s ‘frankly insulting’ to have his (military) board service questioned.’  The Biden regime does NOT want any Trump appointees left anywhere in government.  That is Barack Hussein Obama for you. 
  93. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Mob mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that- get this- the Taliban is ‘businesslike and professional.’  In other stupid regime news, Joe Biden called his boss in Beijing- Xi Jinping- so the two dictators could set some parameters, so the two nations don’t come into conflict (especially when the Chi-Coms begin the invasion of Taiwan).
  94. : Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is defending the mass resettlement of Afghan refugees across the United States even as a growing pandemic of measles is breaking out among them.  The GOP is demanding answers on the numbers, the locations, and the vetting of all these ‘refugees.’  Silence is all they get in answer.  Meanwhile, White House Chief of Staff- and Obama stooge- Ron Klain is receiving loads of blowback for an unwise retweet related to the Chi-Com virus vaccines.  The tweet said that everything the Biden regime is doing related to the China virus is the ultimate work-around.  Lastly, the Biden regime is appealing a recent court ruling against DACA.
  95. 2021 Friday T: Political News I– Rep. Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today by saying his ‘COVID-19 mandates are merely a cover for his disaster in Afghanistan and the calamity on the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Next, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer warned Democrats calling for him to retire that ‘what goes around comes around.’  Ouch.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams says that ‘Joe Biden has painted people- and NOT the Chi-Vi- as the enemy.’  (Note- Joe is good at doing this, he blames everyone else for his own lies, ineptitude, and mistakes). 
  96. 2021 Friday U: Political News II– Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-FL 7th congressional district, says there is NO way she can vote for the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bull-crap.  Good for you.   Next, former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer is nudging her former colleague, Senator Dianne Feinstein, DS-CA, to retire.  Here is what WE think: the Dems know that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is going down in the recall election next week and if Di-Fi would like to step down NOW, “Nazi” Newsom could then appoint himself U.S. senator prior to the end of the day on Tuesday.  Many have sought to encourage Di-Fi to retire before, but she always waves them off.  Will she continue doing so or will the senile old battle ax submit to the leftist mob?
  97. 2021 Friday V: Political News III– Andrew Yang- growing increasingly disillusioned with the Democratic Party- is forging ahead with the formation of a new political party.  Good for you.  In other news, Arizona has sold its Unilever bonds following anti-Semite Ben and Jerry’s outrageous move to ban its ice cream from being sold in Israel because of what they call apartheid.  Screw Ben and Jerry, their ice cream has always sucked anyway.  Tillamook, now that is ice cream of which to be proud.   In other news, as U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken instructs State Department officials in the aftermath of the Afghanistan implosion to ‘look around the corner’ (whatever that means), Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, says the numbers of U.S. passport holders remaining in Afghanistan far outnumbers what the Biden regime claims.  This story of abandonment of U.S. citizens is NOT going away no matter how many mandates old Joe whips out of his backside.
  98. 2021 Friday W: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1693 what with a $368 million jackpot on the line: 20, 32, 35, 47, 64, and Mega 18.  Out of 110,398 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $30,055.
  99. 2022 Saturday: Observation of the Day-  The only reason WHY Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom survived his recall last year is because of voter apathy, normal Democratic Party shenanigans, and the failure of the Republican National Committee getting behind the best candidate, giving him or her the necessary cash, and pushing him or her across the finish line.  California is NOT a BLUE state, all one need do is to look at the county election maps across the state and to see that they are almost all RED.  Add to that the fact that no one likes Gavin Newsom- including most Democrats- and we could easily have dumped this worthless POS.  Ah, well, while he’s warning Californians to avoid using ENERGY during the hottest portions of the day all the while wearing a fleece jacket and cap tells you that this man is little more than a pompous nimrod who is extremely vulnerable IF ONLY, we can get voters out to throw him out of office in November.  Singlehandedly, he has driven our state from being the best in the nation to the absolute worst with high power costs- when you can get it- high housing costs (millions of illegal aliens are getting free apartments which kills it for everyone else), high fuel costs, high food costs, crumbling infrastructure, and the wasting of resources rather than husbanding them.  We have plans to create more water storage and canals with which to move excess water about the state but oh, no, the fresh water flows out to sea to protect an invasive species of fish.  This November, we must turn everyone out and vote this POS and all his cronies out of office.  Ronna McDaniel, are YOU going to help us or are you going to continue ignoring the people of California crying out for deliverance from this Jacobin POS?  Let me know what you think- Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[i] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[ii] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[iii] Not sure as to when the AICPENDBLOG.COM will promote the music of the Aerosmith but when we do, you will also see the music of Blondie and Talking Heads shared as well.  Please, keep your eyes open for the day this magnificent event occurs.

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

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

[vi] We look forward to doing the music of Willie Dixon along with other great bluesmen of the era like Muddy Waters, and all the rest of the great voices of America that made the music of our country what it is.

[vii] When we return to promoting American bands, Cheap Trick will be towards the top so please stay alert.  You won’t want to miss them.

[viii] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

[ix] The French are under numerous terrorist threats and yet, they won’t discuss them out of fear of offending the massive Muslim population the dimwits have allowed to overrun their country.  Round them up and deport them back to whence they came.

[x] Any college geography class will drive this point home.

243. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2022

As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November. I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters. When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM! INSURRECTIONISTS! REVOLUTIONARIES! WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”

Trump for the left-wing violence destroying America’s largest Democrat-controlled cities.  What a laugh.  Meanwhile, Steve Bannon, President Donald J. Trump’s former political advisor had his first day in court with three of his fellow sycophants and pled ‘not guilty’ to charges the quartet defrauded donors into providing money to help build the wall along our border with Mexico.  Elsewhere, the D.C.

  66. 2020 Monday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 25,051,178 confirmed cases, +212,258, 843,586 confirmed deaths, +3,335, and 16,451,018 confirmed recoveries, +142,323.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,081,372 confirmed cases, UP by 23,852 new cases, 185,870 confirmed deaths, UP by 333 new deaths, and 3,202,457 confirmed recoveries, UP by 6,091 new recoveries.   Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 699,909 confirmed cases, 12,905 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. 
  67. 2020 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics- here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,339 confirmed cases, 63 confirmed deaths, and 2,520 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 74,320 confirmed cases, 1,905 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  NOTE: COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death in the United States.  The estimated hit to U.S. tourism and travel industries as of today rests at $51.5 billion.  The Chi-Coms have much to make restitution.   
  68. 2020 Monday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,430.05, DOWN 223.82 points (-0.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,775.46, UP 79.82 points (+0.68%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,500.31, DOWN 7.70 points (-0.22%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,973.90 per troy oz., DOWN -4.70 (-0.24%), SILVER is at $28.24 per troy oz., DOWN -0.202 (-0.71%), PLATINUM $937.90 per troy oz. DOWN -0.90 (-0.10%), and COPPER is at $3.05 # -0.01 (-0.33%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.82, UP +0.21 (+0.49%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.85 Chi-Com yuan.  In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  69. 2020 Monday D: Today, history occurred as El Al Flight 971 lifted off from Jerusalem and three-and-a-half hours later touched down in the United Arab Emirates, the first flight ever to do so.  The aircraft carried loads of dignitaries and the underside of the jetliner bristled with anti-missile defenses.  This is a momentous day for the entire world although the Palestinians continue running amok in the Gaza Strip, trying to initiate yet another war with the world’s sole Jewish state.  Shame on them.
  70. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 218,540,994 confirmed cases, +674,190, 4,533,609 confirmed deaths, +10,669 and 195,365,126 confirmed recoveries, +652,872.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 40,114,099 confirmed cases, UP 168,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 657,910 confirmed deaths, UP 1,533, [xii] and 31,020,612 confirmed recoveries, UP 80,403.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 339,222 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 64,886 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  72. 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: 4,366,577 confirmed cases, 65,885 confirmed deaths, and 2,284,613 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,295,993 confirmed cases, 44,561 confirmed deaths, and 2,342,929 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 63,502 confirmed cases, 589 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 565,013 confirmed cases, 6,643 confirmed deaths, and 246,247 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., District of Columbia: they have 55,431 confirmed cases, 1,160 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [xiv]   That’s Mayor Muriel “Bow-wow” Bowser for you- nothing more than a political hack.
  73. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,066,352 confirmed cases, 7,043 confirmed deaths, and 975,767 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Antigua and Barbuda, 197th country on the list: 1,715 cases of the virus, 34 confirmed deaths and 1,348 confirmed recoveries.

[xix]        
  75. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.398 per gallon, $2.983 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.898 in Washington state. [xx]    Let us look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.994.  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- Seychelles: $5.950 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,707,520,165,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  76. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Following on the heels of the last flight of Americans out of Hamid Karzai International Airport today, the Taliban moved in quickly upon our heels dressed in U.S. camo and using U.S. weapons.  We have left behind perhaps 15,000-20,000 Americans while the bogus regime inhabiting the White House claims the numbers are closer to 100 to 200.  Bulls**t.  Pentagon spokesperson Admiral John Kirby says the U.S. ‘will use leverage to bring trapped Americans home.’  We also left behind all of our military dogs to suffer horrendous fates at the hands of the barbarous Mohammedans who also are going to door to door executing anyone they deem to be enemies or threats to their criminal regime.   What is becoming clearer by the moment is that even though the war is ‘now over,’ Joe Biden’s Afghan crisis is only just beginning.  Take for example, new video showing the Taliban escorting- openly- Osama bin Laden’s former security chief, Dr. Amin al-Haq, an al-Qaida thug.  And the Biden regime says there is NO al-Qaida in the Afghan boonies.  Finally, new reports suggest that during a phone call in June, neither slobbering Joe Biden or Afghan President Ashraf Ghani anticipated the sudden collapse of the country.
  77. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, with the usurper regime in the White House, everything is going to hell.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 160 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle on the southern border and Day No. 67 since her sole visit to th southern border.  What a loser.  Ah, well, the Cost this Day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens is $521,296,416.  Next, the cost of caring for this tsunami of Third World flesh is $265,726,853,120.  As for the numbers of illegal alien vermin who have crossed the southern border this year, here is the appalling figure for the numbers who managed to cross into the United States: 2,723,487.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens sucking away at the American taxpayers’ teat: 36,723,488.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- since the inception of this blog back in 2009, we believed the numbers of illegal alien vermin in the U.S. to have been between 35-50 million whereas now- 12 years later- we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport all of them.  NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Ireland announces that it will be dropping almost all COVID-19 restrictions in their country by October all the while Australia continues tightening the screws on its citizens.  The military goes door to door to check on whether its citizens are cowering behind their doors as well as checks on citizens’ individual QR codes to make sure they are following the government’s dictates.  WTF?  In another country seemingly freer than Australia, Vladimir Putin is approving special payments to military and law enforcement personnel ahead of upcoming elections (just like U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is doing for federal employees in America).
  79. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– In other foreign and overseas news, the People’s Republic of China has restricted young people under the age of 18 no more than 3 hours per week playing video games.  Beijing also shut down the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Chengdu, probably because it is pushing the LGBTQIA+ agenda which should get any organization closed down.
  80. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– In an effort to destroy “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, a ‘report’ suggests that death rates in the Sunshine State due to COVID-19 somehow are artificially low.  Elsewhere, another report says that Alaska and Utah have low COVID-19-related deaths.   Meanwhile, an Axios/Ipsos poll says that ‘it appears vaccine hesitancy is waning’ around the nation.  Uh, okay.  NO, no it’s not.
  81. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that he is ‘confident a judge will rule in favor of his ban on the required wearing of masks in Florida’s school systems.  Elsewhere, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, has been accused of violating New Mexico’s mask mandate on a recent visit to the Cactus State.  Liberal hypocrisy?  No, it couldn’t be.  Meanwhile, the Manhattan D.A. charges 15 in a fake COVID-19 vaccine passport scheme.
  82. 2021 Tuesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.07 (2) AstraZeneca $58.28 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.13 (4) BioNTech $329.19 (5) Moderna $376.69.  Follow the money.  Politicians and the Deep State are invested BIG TIME in vaccine manufacturers.
  83. 2021 Tuesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.76 (2) General Dynamics: $200.31 (3) Boeing: $219.50 (4) Lockheed Martin: $359.80 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.70.  Same as above, the Deep State and politicos are invested heavily in the dogs of war.
  84. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden News I– Early this morning, we were promised that faux president Joe Biden would give a statement on the debacle in Afghanistan to the American people.  When he did finally show up, he was agitated and angrier than ever.  The White House must have gotten some of son Hunter’s crack and had old Joe smoke a few bowls before he walked glassy eyed to the microphones and lit into the American people.  (Note- Joe, STFU about your son, Beau Biden, he did NOT die in combat, he was not shot, he was not blown up, and he was not maimed; no, he died from brain cancer from being around too many burn-pits in-country.  You cannot relate with anyone who has lost a loved one in combat.  Enough!).  The old fool also praised the success of the ‘airlift’ and the ‘end of the forever war.’  Speaking of this man’s failure, the Flag Officers 4 America- more than 87-plus former U.S. military officers- sent a letter to “Taliban Joe” Biden demanding the resignations of U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and political hack Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley over failing to advise Joe Biden of the disastrous consequences resulting from his baffling pull-out from Afghanistan.  (Note- Gen. Milley, being the POS that you are and an uneducated one, IF you ever wish someone to explain to you the truth behind the three-fifths clause, we would love to sit down and explain it to your stupid ass.  Also, you must pay heed as to what happens to ‘political generals,’ i.e., General Alfred Jodl and Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel at the end of World War II).  
  85. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News II– The father of a U.S. Marine killed in last Thursday’s terror attack at HKIA- Mark Schmitz- said that when he met Joe Biden at Dover when the bodies of his son and 12 others arrived home on U.S. soil, Mr. Biden ‘bristled’ when told to learn the stories of the dead.  Joe went on about son, Beau, and said little to nothing to comfort the grieving families and instead looked at his watch to see when he could return to the White House basement to watch reruns of “Dragnet” and “Murder She Wrote.”   Joe also claims he is committed to getting ‘the last 100-200 Americans out of Afghanistan.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Fox News had the balls to report today that during a press conference with FEMA regarding Hurricane Ida relief, when he called forward one of his senior advisers, former Rep. Cedric Richmond, the racist faux president referred to him as “BOY.”  Since Mr. Richmond happens to be black, one would think that the besotted old fool who claims to be president would have ignited a firestorm but oh, no, apparently not.  Here is what the senile codger said: “I’m here with my senior adviser and BOY who knows Louisiana very, very well, and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond.” [xxiii]
  87. : Joe Biden Regime News I– Ahead of a White House visit, the U.S. commits to $60 million in foreign aid to the Ukraine.  Next, U.S. State Department staffers are assailing Secretary Anthony Blinken over the need to terminate one of their own- Fritz Berggren who runs a website, bloodandfaith.com- where he blasts Jews, homos and trannys, and other left-wing riffraff.  Hey, staffers: stop sniveling.  You guys get away with all sorts of stuff so shut the hell up.  Elsewhere, Health and Human Services- HHS- says it’s going to open a division committed to combatting ‘climate change.’  Spare us the crap.
  88. 2021 Tuesday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– In other political news, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says- regarding the bogus January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots panel in the U.S. House of Representatives that is demanding BIG TECH to hand over all data related to the GOP and others who were there on that day- that ‘this is America and the people will remember’ if BIG TECH complies with the Democratic-Socialists’ requests. 
  89. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News I– Eric Trump told Newsmax today that the nation ‘demands a refund for the debacle in Afghanistan.’  We left billions of dollars in equipment there as well as billions of dollars more for the criminal regime currently inhabiting the country.   Next, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that Afghanistan is a ‘jaw-dropping, abysmal failure.’  Amen.  Moving on, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th CD, says that ‘Americans are now fending for themselves’ in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd CD, puts most of the blame for the Afghan debacle atop the shoulders of ‘Taliban Joe’ Biden, National Security Adviser Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan, and the increasingly pathetic, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Sell-Out” Blinken.  Finally, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th CD, says that ‘whenever the Biden regime sends Anthony Blinken to the microphone banks, it’s to LIE to the American people.’  Amen, Rep., amen.  Rep. Mast also has said that the ‘White House has doubled down on stupid with the Taliban.’  Finally, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says the “U.S. is going to fund terrorism against itself.”
  90. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News II– Anger continues to grow across the United States at CRT in the schools- what WE call truthfully ‘Criminal Race Theory’ and what the leftist scumbags label ‘Critical Race Theory.’  This crap is as evil as is Marxism and Nazism and must be destroyed.  Anyone promoting this crap must be stripped of their job and sent into the hinterlands to become reeducated.
  91. 2021 Tuesday U: Economic News– Thanks to the COVID-19 crisis, U.S. home prices during the month of June soared to their highest point in years.  (Note- the reason for higher prices is the scarcity thanks to big banks and Chinese companies snapping up homes in mass.  Not good.
  92. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– The murderer of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- received a sentence of life in prison today as well as having to pay restitution for his barbaric crime.  Execute him.  Another condemned murderer set to die on September 8, 2021, via lethal injection in Texas- 37-year-old John Henry Ramirez- is suing to have the right to have his pastor lay hands on him as he undergoes execution.
  93. 2021 Tuesday W: Social Media News– Another mother who lost her son at HKIA last week saw Instagram shutter account over emotional posts she shared following the death of her child.  When blasted for doing it, Instagram said ‘they made a mistake and had NO clue as to how such an outrageous incident occurred.’  Sure, uh-huh.  F— you.
  94. 2021 Tuesday X: Weather News I– Following Hurricane Ida slamming the gulf coast, thousands in Louisiana are facing weeks- if not months- of NO electricity.  We recall that when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, he had everything ready and waiting to rush in and begin the process of restoring power as soon as the storms passed.  What the hell is up with the Biden regime?
  95. 2021 Tuesday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1690 what with a $306 million jackpot on the line: 08, 14, 31, 58, 68, and Mega 15.  Out of 105,850 winning tickets, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,621.
  96. 2022 Wednesday: As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November.  I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters.  When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM!  INSURRECTIONISTS!  REVOLUTIONARIES!  WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”  It will allow the Biden White House to DECLARE MARTIAL LAW, LOCK DOWN THE ELECTION CYCLE, KEEP EVERYONE IN THEIR HOMES, AND FORCE THEM TO USE MAIL-IN BALLOTS which, we the Democratic Party OWN.  If everyone has to vote by mail, we are going to pull our irons out of the fire and save the election cycle.  IF we can’t get Trump voters to run amok, we will send our Antifa and BLM goons out into the streets, give them CSA and Nazi flags and have them run amok.  It’s a cinch. Trump will be indicted but will NEVER go to trial until October 2024 and we will win that election cycle, too.  Man, oh, man, are we smart.  This is the plan, it’s going to work, and Dems are going to WIN and WIN BIG.  Especially when our media spews the myth that the RED WAVE is dying, and the BLUE WAVE is going to crush EVERYONE.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0938 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Rancho Santa Margarita.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys is one to be expected: “The Beach Boys with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra” (June 08, 2018).  There are 17 tunes here featuring Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson along with Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Al Jardine, and David Marks.  Most every band that has survived- or whose record catalog has survived- has had remix albums with orchestras so why would the Beach Boys be any different?  While some criticize the album, others praise it which is what we do being the completists that we are.  Besides- if you’ve purchased everything else, why would you spurn this effort?  It does not cost that much so pick it up much like you would (or did) “Metamorphosis” or “Jamming with Edward” by the Rolling Stones.  We think you will enjoy but if not, perhaps your aging mother or father will.  After all, they are most likely Beach Boys fans.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[ii] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[iii] Shavers won the vacant Nevada state heavyweight title on September 28, 1971.  However, Earnie lost his two big-time title fights, the first to Muhammad Ali on September 29, 1977, via a 15-round unanimous decision.  He fought to win the WBA, WBC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight titles.  The second shot was against Larry Holmes, aka the Easton Assassin, on September 28, 1979.  Holmes held the WBC heavyweight title of the world.  Holmes beat Shavers via a TKO at the 2:00 minute mark of Round 11 in a scheduled 15-round heavyweight bout.  There would be no future shots at any of the belts.

[iv] We hope to begin promoting the music of Them and of Van Morrison at some point in the near future.  Please remain alert for the day when we do.

[v] We shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies beginning on Thursday, 25-November-2010 through Sunday, 02-January-2011.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy.

[vi] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Firefall sometime in 2026.  Please stay tuned.

[viii] We most definitely should have done Whitesnake back during the time we did the music of Deep Purple, Elf, Rainbow, Ian Gillan, Ian Gillan Band, Richie Blackmore, and the rest of that offering but we failed to do so.  However, when we get around to doing Poison, Mȍtley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and other of the HAIR bands sometime within the next 10 years.  As for the first grouping of bands, we shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.  The only problem, we did the lineup at the Google Blogger blog we had for 11 years and that cocksucker Sundar Pichai, a POS Pakistani jihadist shut us down.  He will get his when conservatism reclaims the nation in the greatest revival since the post-Civil War era.

[ix] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments. 

[x] We began promoting the music of the Move- and of Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne- beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

[xi] More and more Americans now believe that President Barack Hussein Obama was the first phony president as it has become clearer that he was NOT born in the United States but in Kenya.  This would explain the actions of the Democrats back in 2009 when they began to go down the totalitarian roadway.  Look at them now.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Europe f**ked everything up when they began jimmying around with copyright laws but what the hell- it caused record companies to dig deep into their vaults and to then release archival material lest they lose the copyright.  Thus, today, we have the next live album from the Beach Boys- “Live in Chicago 1965”- released on December 06, 2016.  You get two shows for the price of one plus the rehearsals.  If you enjoyed the old Beach Boys album, “Beach Boys Concert”- which is a glorious live album for its day, you will most definitely enjoy this one.  We hope you will seek this one out and to make it part of your daily listening rotation- you will be glad you did.

233. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 21, 2022

2022 Sunday: Let us recap: when Donald J. Trump was running for office, the Obama-Biden Deep State targeted him. Once elected, it continued to target him and the targeting continued throughout his time in the White House. The Mueller investigation, two impeachments, the targeting of his friends, family, colleagues, and supporters. It appears that the cabal of Deep State apparatchiks and their approved elected politicians will continue this unfair targeting far into the future.

  54. 2019 Wednesday:  President Donald Trump cancels his upcoming state visit to Denmark after labeling Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen ‘nasty’ for laughing at his suggestion the United States ‘buy Greenland.’  Folks, buying Greenland would be akin to buying Alaska, the mineral resources are underdeveloped as well as the fact that it would also put a damper on Russian expansion north of the Arctic Circle.  The Russians claim almost everything around the North Pole as theirs to which, we should give them a strong brushback.  BUY GREENLAND!
  55. 2020 Friday: USPS Postmaster General Louis Dejoy testified before the U.S. Senate today, albeit remotely, answering questions about changes occurring in the U.S. Postal Service.  Democrats were rude as is the norm, demanding “YES” or “NO” answers to weighty questions, basically accusing the man of trying to steal the election in November.  Problem for the Democrats is this: THEY are the ones trying to steal the election and always accuse others of what they themselves are doing.  It never fails.  Meanwhile, actress Lori Loughlin gets two months in prison for the college admissions scandal while hubby, Mossimo Giannuli gets five months.  Liberals are crying saying Crystal Mason, black mother of three, got five years in prison for voting when she was a felon and failed to know it was illegal for her to vote.  Folks, felons understand when they leave prison they cannot own guns, practice law, serve on juries, or vote so stop with the sniveling already, Robert B. Reich, Charlotte Clymer, and all the rest of the leftist mob.  It is what the f**k it is. Granted, Loughlin and Giannuli should have gotten two years and five years respectively but remember, liberals, they are members of YOUR tribe so why are you bitching?
  56. 2020 Friday A: Democrats are celebrating “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s acceptance speech the previous night at the Democratic National Convention.  What is clear is that the organizers presented a ‘canned speech,’ and one can only imagine the number of takes required to make it appear seamless.  IF Joe truly gave the speech live and in one take, then he should be willing to debate at least four times.  What does he have to lose, Dems, he is so flipping brilliant, so get him out there and on the stump?  (Note- we still believe something will befall him and his wife prior to Election Day.  The Dems will then use emotions to elect whomever their ticket ends up becoming.  We shall see).
  57. 2020 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 22,589,017 confirmed cases, UP by 73,804 cases, 792,475 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,650 deaths, and 14,457,309 confirmed recoveries, UP by 76,261 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,551,793 confirmed cases, UP by 44,864 new cases, 173,490 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,074 new deaths, and 2,852,221 confirmed recoveries, UNKNOWN because there is no report of new recoveries.  (For some reason, the reportage of U.S. statistics has stagnated, so we have to look everywhere across the Internet seeking current figures.  Could it be…politics?).
  58. 2020 Friday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 650,336 confirmed cases, UP 5,585 cases, 11,821 confirmed deaths, UP by 135, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,844 confirmed cases, UP by 235 (according to yesterday) forty-five confirmed deaths, UP by three, and 1,716 confirmed recoveries, UP by fifty-four.  Finally, in the Ever Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 69,389 confirmed cases, UP by 223, 1,837 confirmed deaths, UP by five, but like California, the halfwit governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us look at one other state we have not looked at before: South Carolina: the state claims 110,378 confirmed cases, 2,459 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Sad
  59. 2020 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals- here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,930.33, UP 190.60 points (+0.69%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,311.80, UP 46.85 points (+0.42%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,397.16, UP 11.65 points (+0.34%).  Price of GOLD: $1,947.40 per troy oz., +0.40 (+0.02%).  Here is the price of SILVER: $26.88 per troy oz., +0.153 (+0.57%).  Price of PLATINUM: $926.30 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.02%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.93 per #, +0.0009 (+0.31%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $42.25, -0.09 (-0.21%).  Today, one dollar U.S. = 6.92 PRC yuan while one dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
  60. 2020 Friday E: In Portland, Oregon, the POS scumbag who shocked the civilized world with his unprovoked violent assault on passing motorist Adam Haner fell into the hands of the cops.  This past Sunday night, Marquise Love beat Mr. Haner senseless and after doing so delivered a violent roundhouse kick to the prone man’s head which caused an intense manhunt for Mr. Love.  The cowardly POS turned himself into the cops lest they shoot him like the dog he is.  These violent scumbags need eradication as though they were wild rabid dogs, we wholeheartedly urge law enforcement to go after the Antifa Brown Shirts and the Black Lives Matter thugs and begin taking them OUT.  A law-based, constitutional republic cannot permit Marxist-inspired anarchy to destroy American cities.  If retribution cannot be obtained legally, then star chambers must undergo establishment for the good of the people.  
  61. 2020 Friday F: Alexei Navalny, the anti-Vladimir Putin critic poisoned earlier in the week by suspected Putin operatives finally receives permission from Moscow for German paramedics to airlift him to Berlin for medical treatment.  Once again, Putin has let everyone know it was HIM who did this because poisoning is his mode of silencing critics.  Speaking of Russians, U.S. law enforcement agents arrested former U.S. Army Green Beret, 45-year-old Peter Rafael Dziubinski Debbins on charges that he has been spying for the GRU since December 1996 to January 2011.  Shame on you, you POS.
  62. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 212,161,905 confirmed cases, +613,209, 4,436,893 confirmed deaths, +20,670 and 189,792,895 confirmed recoveries, +493,461.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 38,519,294 confirmed cases, UP 120,698 from yesterday’s reporting, 644,840 confirmed deaths, UP 728, [v] and 30,463,056 confirmed recoveries, UP 23,817.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vi]  
  63. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 326,252 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 77,826 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[vii]   
  65. 2021 Saturday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 985,341 confirmed cases, 6,775 confirmed deaths, and 911,013 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Monaco, 186th country on the list: 3,129 cases of the virus, 33 confirmed deaths and 2,990 confirmed recoveries. [viii]     
  66. 2021 Saturday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,120.08, UP 225.96 points (+0.65%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,714.66, UP 172.88 points (+1.19%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,441.67, UP 35.87 points (+0.81%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.86 per barrel, -0.28 (-0.45%).  The price of GOLD is $1,782.60 per troy oz., -1.40 (-0.08%) while the price of SILVER is $22.97 per troy ounce, -0.14 (-0.61%).  The price of PLATINUM is $991.20 per troy oz, -3.00 (-0.30%) while the price of COPPER is $4.15 per pound, +0.01 (+0.19%).

  67. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $2.985 in Florida, $4.086 in Hawaii, and $3.908 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let us look at one other location- Oregon: $3.801.  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- Poland: $5.604 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,669,087,460,982 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia with $136 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Saturday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– A new report says that back in June, senile Joe Biden told U.S. allies that Kabul could hold out for the foreseeable future.  It took the Taliban less than a week to overrun the country, arrive at the gates of Kabul, and then infest the city.   Joe Biden is also considering demanding public airlines to begin flying Afghan refugees wherever the government decides to send them, FREE.  Meanwhile, the evacuation out of Kabul is becoming problematic as ISIS is descending on the airport.  God know what could happen next, especially when the U.S. embassy staff still on scene is warning Americans NOT to come to Kabul for evacuation.  WTF?
  69. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 150 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xvi] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 57 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $768,303,104.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $255,014,928,384.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,613,698.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,613,700.   (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Governor Doug Ducey, R-AZ, is extending the deployment of the Copper State’s National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border to help U.S. Border Patrol combat the invasion of illegal aliens.
  70. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The people of Australia are growing angrier with their government over the harsh lockdown measures imposed on the population by a tyrannical regime over COVID-19.  Protesters clashed with law enforcement in two of the country’s biggest cities.  Good for you, people, good for you.
  71. 2021 Saturday I: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– As various left-wing-controlled school districts in the Sunshine State continue trying to buck NO MASK MANDATE in the state’s schools, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis gives the schools an ultimatum: respect the ban or lose funding.  In other news, comedic hack Seth Meyers says the “GOP is lying about masks.”  Seth: The Red States are leading the way in recovering from the COVID crisis so STFU.  Elsewhere, the University of Virginia has disenrolled 238 students who have refused to get the Chi-Com Virus vaccines.  Good for the students.
  72. 2021 Saturday J: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump endorsed former Silver State Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Republican, for U.S. senator.  Meanwhile, President Trump held a massive rally in Cullman, Alabama, to promote Rep. Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, is his bid for the open U.S. Senate seat when Senator Richard Shelby retires next year.  At least 15,000-20,000 people were inside and another 20,000-to-30,000 were outside.  Amazing.  President Trump also said that Joe Biden owes the American people an apology for the unnecessary chaos occurring in Afghanistan.  
  73. 2021 Saturday K: Joe Biden News I– Since “Chi-Com Joe” Biden is taking so much heat for the disaster occurring in Afghanistan, the senile regime leader cancels his trip home to Delaware for the weekend which means, next week, he will be combative, disrespectful, and unstable.  Going to be interesting to watch.   Speaking of the feeble dictator, his poll numbers continue tanking as new cases of the Wuhan Virus Crisis continue rising.
  74. 2021 Saturday L: Political News I– Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, is sponsoring a bill with which to convene hearings on the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Meanwhile, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch says the brief released by the Capitol Hill Police Department is a ‘panic, manic legal defense of unbridled secrecy surrounding the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.’  According to Mr. Fitton, there was a lot of communications going back and forth between U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district and higher-ups in the Capitol Hill Police Department.  Friends, we can make a fairly good guess as to what was going on and all of it was to launch a FALSE FLAG OPERATION to try to destroy President Donald J. Trump.  WE know.
  75. 2021 Saturday M: Political News II– The Chamber of Commerce is running ads for moderate Democrats fighting to separate the ‘infrastructure bill’ from the ‘budget reconciliation’ BS bill House leader “Mumbles” Pelosi is fighting to shove through to bankrupt the country.  In other BS news, Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy signed a bill that preventing New Jersey state prisons from contracting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.  What a POS.  Next, the U.S. State Department reports that it has been hit by a cyberattack.  Why are we not surprised?  Finally, former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan says ‘it’s not surprising that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘missing’ on Afghanistan.
  76. 2021 Saturday N: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court- ever fearful of the Biden regime packing the body- has put a hold on lower court rulings to reinstate the “Remain in Mexico” policy for the millions of illegal aliens swamping the country all requesting ‘asylum.’
  77. 2021 Saturday O: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Radio talk show host Phil Valentine lost his battle with COVID-19 today.  When the famed conservative came down with the ‘VID, liberals laughed and mocked him because he believed in personal choice when it came to wearing masks and/or getting the vaccine.  They are probably doing the jig now.  God bless you, Mr. Valentine.  Elsewhere, famed country music performer Tom T. Hall is dead at age 85.  Next, the Reverend Jesse Jackson and his wife entered the hospital today as both tested positive for the Kung Flu.
  78. 2021 Saturday P: New York State News– Soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov declared a state of emergency today as Hurricane Henri approaches the region.  Reporters asked the loser as to WHY he didn’t hand off to Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul who will become the first female governor of the Empire State on Tuesday?  The ‘governor’ hemmed and hawed as to how he was doing ‘his duty.’  Loser, just go.  NOW.
  79. 2021 Saturday Q: Texas State News– The Texas voting laws now are on the fast track since the fugitive Democrats returned home after 33 days in Washington, D.C.  They fled there to stop the necessary quorum from being formed and only came home when the courts said that Texas law enforcement authorities could arrest them.
  80. 2021 Saturday R: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3588 what with a $10 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 12, 22, 36, 39, 59, and Mega 04.  Out of 91,589 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had five numbers BUT NO Mega for a prize of $33,286.  The winning ticket was sold at Texas Liquor in National City, CA 91950.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #874 with a jackpot of $290 million up for grabs: 16, 28, 36, 39, 59, and Powerball 04.  Out of 101,268 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR plus the Powerball for a prize of $18,305 apiece.
  81. 2022 Sunday: Let us recap: when Donald J. Trump was running in office, the Obama-Biden Deep State targeted him.  Once elected, it continued to target him and the targeting continued throughout his time in office.  The Mueller investigation, two impeachments, the targeting of his friends, family, colleagues, and supporters.  It appears that the cabal of Deep State apparatchiks and their approved elected politicians will continue this unfair targeting far into the future.  The latest story to unfold is that the Joestapo raid targeting Mar-a-Lago was seeking information related to Crossfire Hurricane, to appropriate it and then to destroy it so that evidence of the corruption that set it in motion can never and will never come to light.  This should tell us there’s fear amongst the Deep State that divine judgment is on the horizon, which means they will become even more dangerous in their death throes.  Be aware.

  49. 2007 Monday: Republican senator from the state of Wyoming- John Barrasso- entered the U.S. Senate on this date.   Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court issues a spate of 5-4 decisions.  The first places limits on freedom of expression by students, the next one permits the airing of issue-oriented ads ahead of elections, and the final one prohibits ordinary American citizens from demanding answers over faith-based initiatives.  In essence, the Roberts court is allowing the stripping away of Americans’ freedoms.
  50. 2008 Wednesday: The United States Supreme Court finally does the right thing and rules in the case of Exxon Shipping Co. v. Baker that the damages slapped on Exxon-Mobil over the Exxon Valdez case were exorbitant.  It slashed the settlement from the more than $2.7 billion to a much more reasonable $507 million.  Of course, the Green Nazis go berserk.  In another case, Kennedy v. Louisiana, SCOTUS rules out the death penalty in criminal cases that did not result in the death of another human being.
  51. 2009 Thursday: Death, claimed Michael Jackson[v], the “King of Pop,” in Los Angeles, California, at age 50.  Elsewhere, Skye Saxon, lead singer of the acid rock band, the Seeds[vi], died at age 71 from organ failure in Austin, Texas. Next, actress Farah Fawcett died in Santa Monica, California, at age 62.  What a day for death.
  52. 2010 Friday: Palestinian thugs begin firing mortars into neighboring Israel from the Gaza Strip.  In return, the Israeli air force bombs Palestinian smuggling tunnels from Egypt into the Gaza Strip, hopefully caving them atop the murderous thugs.  Note to Palestinian Authority: stop with the violence already.
  53. 2011 Saturday: New York becomes the largest state to legalize same-sex marriage after Governor Andrew Cuomo signs the New York State Marriage Equality Law.  Meanwhile, across the Middle East, the Arab Spring continues to see new areas ravaged by angry protesters and thugs.  The Syrian military is trying to sever the border between their nation and Turkey where many of the jihadis are coming from.  Meanwhile, fighting rages across Libya and parts of Egypt while the Taliban never let a good crisis go to waste by launching attacks in Afghanistan.  Neutron bombs, folks, neutron bombs, that’s why God gave them to civilized folks.
  54. 2012 Monday: The U.S. Supreme Court rules that minors cannot be sentenced to life without the possibility of parole.  Elsewhere, 30 senior Syrian military officers including a general defect to neighboring Turkey.   Meanwhile, Cyprus announces that at the end of the week, it’s going to seek financial aid from the European Union which will make it the fifth member of the EU to require financial aid.
  55. 2013 Tuesday: A portion of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which protects minority-voting rights, is struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court, ruling that Congress has not considered the nation’s racial progress when singling out certain states for federal oversight.  Elsewhere, the Taliban is getting pretty bold what with launching an attack near the presidential palace in Kabul, the nation’s capital.
  56. 2014 Wednesday:  Facebook reports that over 90% of its tech employees are Asian or white, while women make up only 15% of tech employees and 31% of all employees; COO Cheryl Sandberg notes that more women are also needed in leadership roles at the company—something they are striving to do.  Elsewhere, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki of Iraq calls for ‘national unity’ seeing as how the ISIS trash have overrun the town of Yathrib, 54 scant miles north of Baghdad.  (Note- this is what happens when a POS president like Barack Hussein Obama yanks the U.S. out of Iraq and then has to send America’s war-fighters back in to stabilize the mess he inflicted on himself and on the Iraqis).
  57. 2015 Thursday: For the second time in three years, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds Obamacare in a 6-3 decision, outraging most Americans but causing the Obama Administration to dance the jig.  This is not right and yet, no one—including the Republican Party—will fight against it.  What do the Obamaists have on Chief Justice John Roberts? 
  58. 2016 Saturday: After the new government of Taiwan refuses to accept the One-China Policy and bow down to the commies in Beijing, the Chi-Coms sever communications with the brave island.  They must bow down and kiss the ground the Chinese Communist Party tells them to kiss.  F**k them.  IF Donald Trump wins in November, he will defend Taiwan.  If the Democrats win, it’s ‘adios amigos.’
  59. 2017 Sunday: In Ahmedpur East, Pakistan, a tanker truck carrying oil bursts into violent flames following an explosion, claiming at least 200 lives, and injuring countless others as they sought to scavenge oil on the ground.   Elsewhere, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad arrives in the city of Hama in his first visit to the community since the start of all the anti-government foolishness that has plagued the country since the beginning of the Arab Spring.  He came to attend the Eid al-Fitr holiday prayer services.
  60. 2018 Monday: In Lake County, California, as flames from a raging wildfire burn more than 8,200 acres, Governor Jerry Brown, Democrat, declares a State of Emergency in the area.  Meanwhile, in response to economic sanctions imposed on the United States by the European Union, famed motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson announces it will begin moving some of its production abroad.
  61. 2019 Tuesday: San Francisco, California, a city where garbage, human feces, and toxic waste lines many of the streets, the city’s leadership steps up and does something extremely important: it bans E-cigarettes.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the White House appoints Stephanie Grisham press secretary and communications director.  Elsewhere, on the other side of the world in the Egyptian city of Arish, ISIS thugs descend on a checkpoint and in the resulting melee, seven Egyptian law enforcement officers and a civilian are killed while at least four and possibly five Islamists are killed.
  62. 2020 Thursday: Inexorably, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu continues marching around the world.  In the United States, Democrats gleefully recite all the polls showing “Pro-China Joe” Biden with an insurmountable 14-point lead, in many battleground states, as well as across the nation.  It’s all over, folks, according to the leftists, “NO point going to the polls.”  My, my, my, I guess we shall see.  Here are the global stats for the COVID Crisis (thank you, communist China): 9,494,571 confirmed cases, 484,155 confirmed deaths, and 4,782,910 confirmed recoveries.  
  63. 2020 Thursday A: In the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,463,563 confirmed cases, 126,185 confirmed deaths, and 763,814 confirmed recoveries.  You know the drill: in the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, Golden State first: 195,571 confirmed cases, 5,733 confirmed deaths, but alas, NO mention of confirmed recoveries- is Gov. Gavin Newsom colluding with his Beijing bosses?  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 835 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 686 confirmed recoveries.  In the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 30,318 confirmed cases, 1,300 confirmed deaths, but like other BLUE STATES, no mention of confirmed recoveries.  For interest’s sake, here are the stats for the Empire State where dimwit Governor Andrew “The Moron” Cuomo, a man ‘who’s single and ready to mingle’ according to his mentally challenged younger brother, CNN anchor and victim of Roid Rage, Chris, here are the stats: 390,415 confirmed cases, 24,800 confirmed deaths, and golly gee whiz, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us not forget, too, that Gov. Cuomo is responsible for most of the deaths in his state by sending coronavirus infected patients into rest homes! 
  64. 2020 Thursday B: Here are today’s stock market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,745.60, UP 299.66 points (1.18%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 10,017.00, UP 107.84 points (1.09%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,083.76, UP 33.43 points (1.10%).

  66. 2021 Friday A: Joe Biden To Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 301,029 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 158,620 deaths  
  67. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,813,332 confirmed cases, 63,495 confirmed deaths, and 2,072,095 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,363,489 confirmed cases, 37,768 confirmed deaths, and 2,174,419 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,484 confirmed cases, 515 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 451,871 confirmed cases, 5,939 confirmed deaths, and 225,431 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., South Dakota: they have 124,492 confirmed cases, 2,030 confirmed deaths, and 122,292 confirmed recoveries.[ix]   
  68. 2021 Friday C: Foreign COVID Stats Of The Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 840,638 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,221 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Syria, 128th country on the list: 25,287 cases of the virus, 1,859 confirmed deaths and 21,774 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  69. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,433.84, UP 237.02 points (+0.69%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,360.39, DOWN 9.32 points (-0.065%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,280.70, UP 14.21 points (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $74.00 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.07%).  The price of GOLD is $1,781.80 per troy oz., +4.00 (+0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $26.19 per troy ounce, -0.10 (-0.39%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,108.20 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.42%) while the price of COPPER is $4.28 per pound, -0.02 (-0.37%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,637.10 per troy oz, -3.16 (-0.12%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $19,250.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-2.53%).

[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000031.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.81.     In Paraguayan Guaraní, one greenback equals 6,746.00 and in Peruvian Nuevo Sol, a buck equals 3.97 and in Philippine Peso, one dollar equals 48.54 of theirs.[xiv]        
  70. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.258 per gallon, $2.940 in Florida, $3.997 in Hawaii, and $3.693 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New Mexico: $3.018.  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- Taiwan: $3.945 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,448,291,778,032 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 Bermuda, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Netherlands with $70 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 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Border arrests top one-million during Fiscal Year 2021.  Wow.  Next, by our count, today is Day #94 that ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge and voila, like a maggot appearing on a dog turd, she showed up in the El Paso sector and blamed the problems along the border on- you guessed it- President Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, once in El Paso, perhaps the slowest crossing point for the illegal alien tidal wave, she chose to blast the GOP instead of offering competent fixes for the border crisis.  Dimwit.  Speaking of “Kooky Kamala,” former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan says that the ‘vice president’ won’t accomplish a thing at the border.
  72. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Canadian leader Justin Trudeau says that Pope Francis should apologize on Canadian soil for what happened in Catholic-run First Peoples’ schools where numerous unmarked graves have turned up.  Mr. Trudeau, those Catholic nuns running the schools most likely were Canadian Catholic nuns so you should stop while you are ahead, doofus.   If you wish to see true persecution and discrimination against the indigenous peoples of North America, look no further than Canada and Mexico before you start sniveling about the United States’ treatment of Native Americans.
  73. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The filthy city by the bay- San Francisco- is going to require ALL city employees- 35 thousand of them to be precise- to get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  Whether they like it or not!  (Seems like we have heard this before from Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom when he was mayor of Frisco and was marrying gays at city hall.  It was against the law back then and he blew it off.  He told his critics that ‘whether you like it or not, it’s gonna happen so get with the program bigots.”  What a lovely fellow.  Going to be amazing watching him go down in the recall election.
  74. 2021 Friday I: Health and Medical Alerts– What’s up with Joe Biden?  Not only does he say black people are too ignorant to get by in life without help from Uncle Joe, now, Hispanics are, too, because- and this is a good one- according to the drooler-in-chief, “they won’t get the vaccine because they fear being deported immediately afterward.”  WTF, Joe, you aren’t deporting anyone now so who is fearful of getting the vaccine and then getting placed aboard the southbound Border Patrol bus and sent back whence the f**k they came?  (Note- what the hell is up with this bigoted POS claiming to be president, flinging out all sorts of racist comments sans any kind of pushback?  Where are all these RACE WARRIORS fighting against bigots, racists, and white supremacists?)
  75. 2021 Friday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– The state senate in Pennsylvania has approved a bill requiring a constitutional amendment with which to codify VOTER ID in the state’s founding documents.  Excellent.  In Georgia, both Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger are pushing back against the unlawful overreach of the Department of Justice threatening to trash their new voting laws.  President Donald J. Trump says that citizens of the Peach State should sue their state government over the crooked, ‘rigged election.’  Amen.  What amazes us is the fact that the Georgia voting rights law is less strident than say the ones in New York or in Colorado and yet, that little trollop, Kristin Clarke, the little racist heading the civil rights division at the Justice Department could care less.  And you ask why WE believe the 2020 Election was stolen?  NO one in their right mind would vote for this crap, no one.
  76. 2021 Friday K: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I–  Former Minneapolis Police Officer received a sentence from Judge Peter Cahill today of 270 months in prison.  The prosecution was seeking 30 years while the defense was seeking probation.  The judge issued his verdict and in a 20-plus page addendum added his reasoning in writing so that everyone would be able to see and understand his thought processes on the verdict.  (Note- almost immediately, people outside the courthouse were wailing and moaning.  STFU already, George Floyd’s family is now fabulously wealthy so they most likely are pleased that erstwhile son George took one for the team).  Elsewhere, the union head of prison employees says that the Bureau of Prisons is facing tough decisions without proper funding in the upcoming budget.
  77. 2021 Friday L: Popular Culture News– A new poll says that 3 out of 4 respondents believe it’s unfair for women to be forced to compete with mentally deranged young boys and men claiming to be girls.  Only one person out of four believes that girls should be forced to compete with males.  Look, we have offered some fixes for this problem.  First, IF boys want to be girls, then they should undergo full transition from male to female meaning everything gets snipped off and you have undergone at least a year to get the testosterone out of your system.  Second, IF girls must be forced to compete with un-snipped boys and young men, girls should be allowed to dope as this will even the playing field.  Third and final alternative, just create a third category of sports: TRANNY SPORTS.  We believe everyone would watch TRANNY SPORTS because who doesn’t love a good ‘freak show?’
  78. 2021 Friday M: California State News– California’s government is asking ALL Californians NOT to charge their electric vehicles during Peak Hours.  Hmmm, what can go wrong with this debacle?  Well, if you lived in a town like Paradise, California, which burned down more than 20,000 acres back in 2018.  People were trapped in the town what with only one or two roads out of the area which were both ablaze.  The death toll was frightening but imagine how much worse it could have been had people been reliant upon EVs.  We will drive gas-guzzling cars to the day we die because we will never bow down to the Green Meanies.
  79. 2021 Friday N: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1671 has a $50 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 17, 20, 42, 45, 65, and Mega 12.  Out of 49,933 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $12,402.
  80. 2022 Saturday: Today marks Day #521 of the illegal Joe Biden regime.  We tick off the minutes every day until we can see the return of the legitimate President Donald J. Trump to his rightful position in the White House.  This is WHY the fake news media, the criminals in the Democratic-Socialist Party (and among the RINO wing of the GOP), and the street thugs in Antifa and Black Lives Matter continue pursuing the freedom fighters of the nation by vilifying and ridiculing them.  Ridicule all you want.  The time is coming and it’s coming soon.  Stick around and discover the truth along with all of us.  You will be glad you did (including the traitorous scum trying to topple the country and sell it out to the Chi-Coms).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every now and then, a movie soundtrack or cut from a movie soundtrack breathes NEW LIFE into an older band.  The song, “Kokomo” from the Tom Cruise movie, “Cocktail,” was just such a track and suddenly, the Beach Boys had their first Number One hit since “Good Vibrations” several decades earlier.  The band went into the studio and came out with a new album, “Still Cruisin’” that came out on August 28, 1989.  The album featured the same lineup as the previous album but this record was far better.  We hope you will investigate it to your exacting standards but we suspect that you will enjoy this album as much as we do.  Check it out ASAP.  You will be glad you did.

  58. 2020 Saturday: First, America returns to space what with the NASA-SpaceX collaboration as early in the afternoon, liftoff occurred with the Falcon 9 rocket and astronauts Bob Bacon and Doug Hurley made it safely into space.  God protect you, gentlemen, no longer does the United States have to rely on Russia to get our men and women into space.
  59. 2020 Saturday A: Protests continue around the nation over the death of George Floyd this past Monday in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The night before, extremely violent protests left many cities little more than moonscapes with stores burnt down, the husks of cars littering the streets.  As day progressed, more and more protesters and rioters returned to the streets and began going at it again.  There can be NO question that communist China is colluding with the Democratic Party via funding and resources because the level of coordination for the conflagrations around the country is beyond most liberal losers to pull off on their own.  We believe that President Trump must rebuff Beijing every day and tell them, “YOU aren’t getting away with this!”  Free Hong Kong!  Free Taiwan!  Free Macau!  Free Tibet!  Now, for the Wuhan Bat Flu statistics.  Here we go:
  60. 2020 Saturday B: The Chinese Virus continues flowing around the world but with the protests raging in the streets of America, no one seems much concerned.  Many aren’t wearing masks.  Here are the global stats for today: 6,054,187 confirmed cases, 368,711 confirmed deaths, but 2,562,191 confirmed recoveries which far outpaces the number of deaths.  Excellent.  Here are the stats for the United States: 1,805,745 confirmed cases, 105,159 confirmed deaths, but 390,404 confirmed recoveries which would be much higher if Blue State governors were honest and would share those numbers.  In the three states where the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 108,878 confirmed cases, 4,060 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION yet again of confirmed recoveries.  Governor Gavin Newsom, get with it and share those numbers, you worthless POS.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 647 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, but 604 confirmed recoveries which is extremely good.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 21,288 confirmed cases, 1,118 confirmed deaths, but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Gov. Jay Inslee plays the same brand of deceptive liberal politics and won’t share honest statistics.  Shame on him!  Shame on Gov. Newsom!  Recall BOTH of them.
  61. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 171,006,181 confirmed cases, +388,054, 3,556,019  confirmed deaths, +7,837 and 153,278,160 confirmed recoveries, +52,339.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,042,922 confirmed cases, UP 7,604 from yesterday’s reporting, 609,544 confirmed deaths, UP 124,[vi] and 27,840,817 confirmed recoveries, UP 21,856.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vii]  
  62. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 291,598 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 168,011 deaths  
  63. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,789,318 confirmed cases, 63,245 confirmed deaths, and 2,054,021 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,320,818 confirmed cases, 36,774 confirmed deaths, and 1,943,113 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 36,246 confirmed cases, 500 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 437,952 confirmed cases, 5,829 confirmed deaths, and 212,777 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Indiana: they have 743,696 confirmed cases, 13,620 confirmed deaths, and 710,986 confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  64. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,458 confirmed cases, 6,411 confirmed deaths, and 832,693 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- El Salvador, home of MS-13: 73,246 cases of the virus, 2,245 confirmed deaths and 68,408 confirmed recoveries.[ix]     
  65. 2021 Sunday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,529.45, UP 64.81 points (+0.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,748.74, UP 12.46 points (+0.091%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,204.11, UP 3.23 points (+0.077%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.63 per barrel, +0.31 (+0.47%).  The price of GOLD is $1,903.70 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $28.07 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.18%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,184.40 per troy oz, +2.00 (+0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.67 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,822.33 per troy oz, +17.19 (+0.61%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $24,750.00 per troy oz., +2000.00 (+8.79%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.37 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Central African CFA Franc, one greenback equals 532.21 and in Chilean Peso, a buck equals 724.05 and in Colombian Peso, one dollar equals 3,705.75 of theirs.[xiii]      
  66. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.197 per gallon, $2.866 in Florida, $3.926 in Hawaii, and $3.576 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Arizona: $3.126.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Sierra Leone: $3.142 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,348,229,478,276 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, this is Day #69 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the “Laughing Hyena,” to be in charge of the southern border and not to have visited it.  Her ‘vice presidential’ salary is being well-spent as you can see.
  68. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– It looks like the Israelis are going to do to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu what the British people did to Prime Minister Winston Churchill at the end of World War II after he saved the UK like Netanyahu has Israel- countless time- vote him out and move on.  Netanyahu has saved Israel countless times and now that he has and the Palestinians have lit them up with more than 4,000 rockets, it appears the liberals in Israel are going to boot him and suck up to Gaza Strip and to Iran in a roundabout way,  Wow. At least Bill Maher is defending Israel unlike the rest of American liberals.  In other foreign and overseas news, news reports say that Mexican drug cartels are hunting Mexican law enforcement officers in their homes.  It sounds like Mexico- if it wants to remain a sovereign nation instead of an Afghanistan-like s**thole, they had better mobilize their military and start cleaning out this nest of vipers.
  69. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit continues even without the help of Democrats within the state who seem to be intent at keeping it under wraps rather than jumping in with both feet to demonstrate there was NO funny business.  The auditors are hand-counting 1 million ballots.  God bless them for doing what is RIGHT.  
  70. 2021 Sunday I: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– In the era of ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden, last night/early this morning in Miami-Dade County in Florida, a gunman assaulted a concert, shot two dead, and wounded another 20.  In this era of gun control, amazing at how many folks are getting shot.   Meanwhile, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS, is bragging about how well gun control in the Golden State is doing a few days after the VTA train yard massacre in San Jose, California.   In another incident last night in Pittsburgh, a thug opens fire at a shopping mall but killed no one- two perps are in custody.
  71. 2021 Sunday J: Political News I– The Wisconsin state Assembly has ordered an investigation into Mark Zuckerberg-funded Center for Tech and Civic Life.  About time this little POS began to get his.  Next, a Michigan court rules that six recall petitions against Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer and one against Lt. Governor Garlin Gilchrist can move ahead.  Good.  Remove both of them from office.  Still, their supporters say they will fight the recall efforts in the courts.  Time to cut bait and go.  Moving on, as the Texas elections security bill moves forward, mumbling, stumbling old senile Joe Biden blasts the Lone Star State.  What a loser. Elsewhere, Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, says that ‘masks are no longer required in all government buildings.’
  72. 2021 Sunday K: Political News II– One America News reports a major poll regarding HOW the American people- in this case, New Yorkers- feel about the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Nearly 100-percent of the respondents believe the Chi-Vi came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology nor did they believe it a naturally-occurring virus but a lab-engineered one cooked up by the Chi-Coms.  Some even believed it was retaliation for President Donald J. Trump putting an ass-whooping on them over trade.  (Note- we have said that the virus was ‘too convenient’ as for the Chi-Coms, it allowed them to clamp down on Hong Kong as well as to put their stooge Joe Biden into the White House.  They are going to pay for this BIG TIME.  Retribution is coming).   
  73. 2021 Sunday L: Political News III– Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says the ONLY one responsible for rising inflation is Joe Biden and no one else.  In other political news, Democrats are pushing ahead with H.R. 127- the Firearm Licensing and Registration Act- which requires even more background checks, 24 hours of training paid for by the gun buyer, as well as clearance by a psychiatrist who will interview NOT only the buyer but every member of the immediate family meaning any and all relatives they can reel in with their dragnet.  Even more problematic is that all this information would become PUBLIC meaning everyone would know the guns one has as well as all the background information.  (Note- good thing we all have our firearms and will only buy them out of the backs of car trunks should this crap law ever become law of the land).
  74. 2021 Sunday M: Miscellaneous News I– the United Nations has released a report stating the danger of KILLER autonomous drones flying all over the damned place.  How soon before targeted assassinations are occurring in the skies above every nation?  If the tech companies can kill people with impunity in the Third World, soon, the thugs in the Third  will be repaying the favor.   Elsewhere, former General David Petraeus says the government has a responsibility to care for U.S. service personnel sickened by the notorious burn pits.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast Guard calls off a search for 10 missing Cuban refugees who went into the water off the Florida Keys.  Two bodies were recovered while several others were rescued.  The Coast Guard searched 800,000 square miles of ocean.        
  75. 2022 Monday:  It’s a holiday weekend, hopefully it will be a slow news day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

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

Are we putting our ‘national security’ into their conniving hands?)

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

  53. 2013 Wednesday: Shuanghui, a Chinese meat processing company, buys Smithfield Foods for $4.72 billion; Smithfield was the world’s largest meat processing company.  (Boy, the United States is truly fucked, is it not?  How has it come to pass that Chi-Coms are buying up American food processing companies?  Are we putting our ‘national security’ into their conniving hands?)

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

Currently, Joe is shy 168,135 deaths

  70. 2021 Saturday F: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Under Joe Biden’s new regulations, American employers can require vaccination proof as a condition of employment but- and this is the good part- illegal aliens will NEVER have to demonstrate vaccinations for anything.  Meanwhile, Rep.

  71. 2021 Saturday G: Business News–  Job searches are up in states that have severed ties with the expanded federal unemployment benefits program.  Once that extra money vanishes, people head back to work which they are doing in droves.  Meanwhile, a judge approves a class action lawsuit against Google who- as a WOKE entity- paid their 11,000 female employees WAY LESS than their male employees.  That is that POS Sundar Pichai for you- deport this idiot and his entire family back to Punjabistan.  Elsewhere, 20 GOP-led states are booting unemployment benefits for gig workers.  Get real jobs losers.
  72. 2021 Saturday H: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden is banking on the new $3.6 trillion in taxes he is slapping- supposedly on the wealthy but which will fall on everyone save the poor and the vermin illegal aliens flooding around the country- to pay for his $6.2 trillion in new spending, money he will be borrowing from the Chi-Coms.  Meanwhile, the House and Senate GOP are blasting Joe Biden’s defense spending as wholly inadequate seeing as how we are competing against the Chi-Coms, their Russian underlings, and their Iranian stooges.  Next, in other regime news, the Bidenistas are speeding up the processing of illegal alien families via refugee resettlement.  Finally, Joe Biden’s lips are zipped on WHY he is NOT fulfilling his campaign promise regarding cancellation of $50,000 per student per loan debt.  (Note- the dumb asses that voted for dribbling Joe Biden believing he would do this got played again just as Barack Hussein Obama played the dummies.  Never going to happen, not when the usurper in the White House is going to spend $6 trillion upon trillions of earlier spending.  Better luck next time, fools).
  73. 2021 Saturday I: Political News I–  Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, boldly pointed out that the police reform bills favored by the Democrats are becoming problematic for them.  Amazing how the Dems slash police budgets and then are appalled by rising violent crime rates.  Go figure.

  75. 2021 Saturday K: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– For some unknown reason, convicted POS murderer Scott Peterson who murdered his wife and unborn child will not be put to death.  Guess Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom must need his vote in the recall election.  Meanwhile, a 14-year-old snot is going to be tried as an adult in Florida for the murder of a classmate.

With record sales being so-so, the next album by the Beach Boys is a live album recorded several years back on a European tour: “Live in London” (May 12, 1970).  Overseas, the Europeans never gave up on the Beach Boys so whenever they arrived on continent, they were hailed as heroes and the crowds were among the loveliest ever heard or seen.  The lineup features 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 interaction between band and crowd is a joyous glimpse into the past to behold and the songs on this album are among their best including “Barbara Ann,” “Good Vibrations,” “Darlin’,” “California Girls,” and “Do It Again” among others.  We hope you will seek this one out and add it to your daily rotation.  You will be glad you did.

117. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2022

1975 Sunday: North Vietnamese infantry and armor encircled Saigon on this date. Although panic grips much of the populace of South Vietnam’s capital city, South Vietnamese troops are determined to hold out for as long as they can. Had not the Democrats in the U.S. Congress prevented President Gerald R. Ford from rushing in military supplies so the ARVN troops could fight on equal terms, this humiliating defeat would never have occurred. However, the Democrats being the pro-communist scum they are left the South to its fate. Evil.

  61. 2016 Wednesday: Unlike other European countries, Austria says “F— this” by limiting asylum claimants into their country and also reserves the right to reject people at their border.  Of course, human rights groups go haywire claiming this is an afront to all humanity.  Austria, we’re with you, Germany and Angela Merkel are NOT your friends.

Biden remains mum on allegations he sexually abused a staffer back in the 1990s when he was a senator.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!

  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 264,711 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  71. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.996 per gallon, $2.791 in Florida, $3.767 in Hawaii, and $3.421 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.569.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The first country on the list is the second lowest gasoline price in the world- Iran: $0.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Good for those Shiite lunatics  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,221,266,256,036 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.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, upbraids the Biden regime’s plan of dumping tens of millions of dollars on the Northern Triangle countries of Central America in the hope that dumping U.S. dollars on corrupt and sometimes criminal regimes will stop the ongoing flow of illegal aliens to the United States.   Speaking of the Biden regime, a new directive prohibits ICE from arresting criminal illegal aliens at courthouses across the country.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is going to launch a major investigation into extremists…within its own ranks.  Sounding more and more like a communist regime in the making when governmental departments begin looking for enemies within their own ranks.  Next, Joe Biden wants to give the Internal Revenue Service $80 billion so they can step up tax collections and enforcement activities against shirkers unwilling to do their duty and pay higher taxes.  Of course, Democrats in arrears with the IRS will be entirely fine.[xvi]  Moving on, Joe Biden is going to Georgia tomorrow to celebrate his 99th day in office and to blast the GOP.  Oh, he also wants to propose FREE PRESCHOOL, yet another way of getting hold of America’s kids and indoctrinating them into believing there are a billion genders.  Finally, the Washington Post is going to end its ‘fact-checking’ of the lying Joe Biden.  (Note- Fake News strikes again).
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– With feeble old Joe Biden in the White House willing to drop to his knees in front of the Iranian mullahs if the murderous thugs will A-L-L-O-W the U.S. back into the flawed nuclear deal, what do the Iranians do?  They cause problems for the U.S. Navy in the Persian Gulf, threatening our warships who then had to drive the IRG swift boats away.  (Note- we think the U.S. should sink Iran’s entire navy).  Meanwhile, as news continues to break about John F. Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations, there are growing calls for a thorough investigation into the scumbag’s criminal activities.  Speaking of Kerry, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘John F. Kerry’s love of the Iran nuclear deal may have clouded his judgment.’  (Note- nope, Marco- Kerry is a traitor and should be treated as such).  His fellow senator, Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘IF the Iran allegations are true, John Kerry must leave government employ.’  Amen.  Bloomberg journalist Eli Lake says that the ‘Iran talks can do without Russian diplomatic mischief’ (so says a leftist).
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Political News I– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is limiting attendance for Joe Biden’s first ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress.  What?  Is he going to be like, a, uh, hologram?  Whatever happens, it’s going to be hysterical.   In California, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is sniveling and whining about the recall effort going forward against him.  He is blaming the GOP when it’s EVERYONE wanting to get his worthless butt out of office.  Still, many believe the Democrats are going to pull a fast one and somehow preserve the Smiler’s career by having him (we said this last year when or if “Kooky Kamala” Harris actually became the VP) appoint himself U.S. senator by having Senator Dianne Feinstein step down and him take her place.   The other possibility is that he will step down so the lieutenant governor can step in, so the state remains in Democratic Party hands.  We shall see.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News II–  President Donald J. Trump has endorsed Susan Wright for the Texas 6th congressional district.  Her husband, Rep. Ron Wright, died from COVID-19 and the 45th president hopes to have his widow take his place.   Next, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is going to address a “Back the Blue” rally that is upcoming.  Speaking of the Peach State, 21 black political leaders are excoriating the Democrats for damaging their state by lying about the new voter law. 
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci makes yet another ‘promise’ to the American people- that the U.S. should see a ‘turning point in several weeks’ if we all do the right thing like wear masks and get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We won’t put any money on that.   Next, although the liberals won’t give President Donald J. Trump any credit for the vaccine, they are now demanding he do a public service announcement to get his ‘Neanderthal followers’ to go out and get vaccinations- like good citizens.  What a load of crap.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed Democratic strategist James Carville says that ‘wokeness is a problem for Democrats’ and that ‘we all know it.’   Next, news comes out that many state-run colleges now require new hires to commit to the promotion of far-left agendas.  Wow.  We knew this.  In other WOKE insanity, the CEO of VisuWell- Sam Johnson- found himself terminated from his job for asking why a foul-mouthed punk at a prom reception was wearing a dress and being a foul-mouthed little shit.  What?  People cannot say anything anymore.  This is what happens when two generations of young people don’t get the belt across their asses.  Spare the rod and spoil flipping generations.  If kids had been disciplined there would be NO WOKE movement.   Finally, Elon Musk is getting lambasted by the WOKIES about him hosting Saturday Night Live sometime next month.  WTF?  We thought Musk was a ‘cool guy.’[xvii]
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: Miscellaneous News I– Former Dallas PD Officer Amber Guyger who shot her black neighbor dead claiming she entered the wrong apartment and thought the man was an ‘intruder’ is appealing her sentence.   Next, Governor Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed three anti-abortion bills limiting when abortions can occur.  Of course, the liberals are out running amok, demanding he be removed from office.  Wah, wah, wah.  Next, Senator Cynthia Lummis, R-WY, introduced a bill today that would permit people under age 21 to buy handguns.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says the ‘Democrats are insane to fight the Arizona 2020 Election audit.’  They are doing everything they can to stop it so that tells you all you need to know.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News II– At the House GOP retreat, apparently tensions between hardcore RINO Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, are rising.  We are not sure as to why the two are having problems but of the two, Cheney is the least popular and needs to shut her mouth.  Moving on, Little Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. Transportation secretary, says that ‘from the start, Joe Biden has longed for a BIPARTISAN infrastructure bill.’  Yeah, sure.  Bulls**t.   Meanwhile, liberals are fearful that the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan is going to leave women in a dark place.  We guess we could stay there another 50 years and the plight of women in that s—hole country would…still be the same.
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Miscellaneous News III– Britney Spears is set to speak at an upcoming court hearing regarding the highly unfair conservatorship in which, her father has placed her.   Next, states are fearful of SCOTUS taking the new concealed carry of firearms case in that it might lessen their power.  You can’t trust Chief Justice John Roberts. 
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw: Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1654 with a $319 million on the line: 15, 22, 30, 41, 42, and Mega 25.  Out of 120,216 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $10,640 apiece.

  84. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,481 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 205,726 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 462 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  88. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.680 per gallon, $4.168 in Florida, $5.249 in Hawaii, and $4.687 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Mississippi- $3.776.  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 29th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Pakistan: $3.035 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,412,638,051,610 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland the FIFTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg.  This nation holds $288,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The world-famous ‘border czar,’ Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the disaster befalling the country for the past 390 days.  Worse than that, it’s been 304 days since last she showed up to do a photo op.  The cost of caring for these uninvited illegal aliens for the past 117 days is a shocking $745,967,001.  Atop that, since the two derelicts became the ‘guardians of the Constitution and the American people,’ the nation has shelled out $42,491,772,744 to care for the leeches.  Since the first day of the year, we have seen 1,192,049 illegal aliens pour across the border and into the interior of the country.  NOT good.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens living in the country is 46,623,706.  We believe the number is treble that, possibly quadruple that.  NO nation can withstand this invasion, perhaps not even until November.  Our nation could soon be lost.  Time for Operation Wetback II.  Let’s round ‘em up and deport them ASAP out of the country and back to whence they came. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  90. 2022 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– A new poll says that nearly half of all Israelis fear a second Holocaust is brewing.  Next, Russia releases American hostage, Trevor Reed, home to his family in an exchange for a Russian drug trafficker locked up in the United States.  The parents of Mr. Reed said it appeared their son’s treatment at the hands of the Russians was horrible.  F**king Russians.  Time to nuke them.   Speaking of the Russians and their horrible treatment of those whom they don’t like, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is demanding global control over Russia’s nuclear weapons stockpile.  Ukraine fears that the Russians might nuke them the more the Ukrainians continue mopping the floor with Russian blood.

  97. 2022 Wednesday N: Political News I– A new bill has come forth seeking to reinstate ALL U.S. military personnel terminated for refusing to undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu virus.  Excellent.  Bring them back.  In other news, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testifies on Capitol Hill where we learn that the Biden regime spent $72 million to extricate itself from federal contracts with which to complete construction on the border wall.  Wow.  Secretary Mayorkas says the Trump administration ruined the immigration system but has NO fixes to stop the seething tidal wave of humanity pouring across it.  Instead, he says that domestic extremism- WHITE POWER EXTREMISM- is the most potent threat facing Americans today.  While DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was testifying before Congress, he raised concerns over what he said is the establishment of a ‘disinformation board’ with which to combat ‘misinformation.’  The board will be headed by ultra-leftist Nina Jankowicz, a fellow at the Wilson Center.
  98. 2022 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3659 what with a $37 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 03, 11, 13, 23, 34, and Mega 23.  Out of 121,094 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $21,088 apiece.  One ticket was sold at the Arco AM/PM in Perris, CA 92571 while the other was sold at 7-Eleven in Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #981 with a jackpot of $454 million up for grabs: Out of 180,291 winning tickets, SIX people had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,226 apiece.

[ii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time, we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so, please remain vigilant.
