Gen. Michael Flynn case- Judge Emmet Sullivan- refuses to let the case go even after the U.S. Department of Justice said it’s not going to prosecute this case.  This is what is wrong in the United States, we have dictatorial judges who need to be impeached and removed from office.  Perhaps when the GOP controls both houses of Congress in January 2021?

  86. 2021 Thursday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– After Hamas has launched more than 1,500 rockets into civilian areas within Israel since Monday, it would appear that Israeli ground and air assets are crossing the border into the hellhole known as Gaza.  Moses Scharbug III, aka Mo- who now lives in Israel- says that it is a clash between civilization and darkness, a clash between light and barbarism and that the Israelis must crush these animalistic scum with every weapon possessed in their arsenal.  We all tend to agree.  Send these cockroaches howling into 1,000 years of darkness, naked and devastated.  The Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer says that ‘Hamas must be taught a lesson that it cannot murder Israelis with impunity.’  Amen.  We say, ‘use neutron bombs and eliminate these rats.’   
  87. 2021 Thursday G: Political News I– While Israel fights for its very survival, Anti-Semitic scum such as Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, and Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, are more or less calling for her destruction by not providing her support in her hour of need.  As Mo says, ‘NO matter what the Democratic-Socialists say, God gave the land encompassed by Israel to Moses more than 2,000 years ago.  It was the homeland of the Jews and the only reason it was not because first the Romans and then the Muslims drove them off the land.  If one wants to talk about the ‘right of return,’ Jews have the first and ONLY right of return.’  Could not say it better ourselves.   Regarding these two Islamist congresswomen, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, confronted the head of the ‘suicide squad,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka AOC aka Baby Evita aka Sandy Cortez (birth name), DS-NY 14th congressional district, and called her out over her support for ‘terrorists.’  
  88. 2021 Thursday H: Business News– The Biden Regime is doing a lot of chest-thumping over the fact that last week ONLY 473,000 new jobless claims were filed.  What they neglect to say is that there are 8,000,000 unfilled in jobs in the U.S., jobs that are NOT being filled because of the Biden’s regime edict that the unemployed receive MORE money sitting at home in their skivvies than they would if they were on the job.  (Note- we believe the Biden regime is doing this so as to whine in a few weeks that ‘to fill these empty jobs, illegal aliens will have to do the work Americans are unwilling to do.’  We’ve heard this tune before.
  89. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s $86 billion pension bailout plan is set to boost corporate bonds.  In related news, a House panel is backing a bill that will spend $8 billion to shift the United States Postal Service from gas-fueled vehicles to electric vehicles.  (Note- fascinating how coincidental the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline running through 17 states and now the Dems are pushing for more electric vehicles than ever.  You realize that once everyone has EVs, they will be restricted to a certain radius because of charging station availability, the length of the charge, as well as the fact that electric cars are far more expensive, batteries harder to dispose of due to their toxicity, and the eventual pushing of everyone out of electric vehicles to public transit in much the same way we have Ubers).[xx]   
  90. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– As the Arizona state senate continues its investigation into the fraudulent 2020 Elections, investigators announce that the Maricopa County election officials WIPED the voting machines’ memories.  Here again is yet another reason as to why millions of Americans continue to believe that what happened in the days following November 03 were not legit.  And still, the Democrats continue crying and sniveling that anyone questioning the results of the 2020 Election is somehow a backwoods goober.  (Note- the evidence continues piling up by the day that November 03, 2020, was the worst example of elections fraud in the history of our great nation).
  91. 2021 Thursday K: Miscellaneous News I– Democrats are seeking a ban on military weapons making their way into the hands of local police departments.   Next, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov has hired criminal defense attorneys without saying if HE is paying for them or the Empire State will.  (Note- our bet is on the taxpayers of New York).  Speaking of worthless governors, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says he will ‘END the mask mandate on June 15.’  (Note- too late, there ‘Smiler;’ no matter what you do, WE are recalling you).  Elsewhere, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is trying to fight off potential challengers as she seeks to become the No. 3 in the GOP House leadership.  (Note- most of us would like to seen Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, or Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, get the job).
  92. 2022 Friday: You know the drill…

The next album by the Beach Boys- “Shut Down Volume 2” was the biggest to date as it contained so many wonderful tunes.  The lineup featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals).  The tunes on this album are some of the band’s fan favorites to this date- “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Don’t Worry Baby” (a tune Who drummer Keith Moon would cover on his sole solo album), “The Warmth of the Sun,” “This Car of Mine,” “Why Do Fools Fall in Love,” “Shut Down Part II,” and a cover of “Louie, Louie.”  We hope you will investigate this album to your ears’ content as it is one every fan of the times and of the band should own.  You will be so glad you did.

  70. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.074 per gallon, $2.881 in Florida, $3.815 in Hawaii, and $3.502 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New York: $2.978.  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- Ethiopia: $1.917 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,255,825,311,282 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.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.
  82. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

1954 Wednesday: At Dien Bien Phu, French troops fighting at Claudine 5 are shocked to see a platoon of Moroccan soldiers cut their way through the wire and cross over to surrender to the enemy.

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 198

125. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MAY 05, 2022:

Cinco de Mayo (fake ‘Mexican holiday’[i]); Yom Ha’atzmaut; National Day of Prayer and West Virginia Day of Prayer

Acting U.S. Secretary for Homeland Security David Pekoske; Famed Chef and Culinary Genius James Beard; Black Sabbath featuring Bill Ward, Family featuring Jim King, and the Jefferson Airplane/Jefferson Starship featuring Papa John Creach:

  1. 1045 Monday: The reign of the 148th Roman Catholic Pope Gregory V commences today.  He would lead all of Christendom from today until December 20, 1046.
  2. 1260 Wednesday: Kublai Khan becomes ruler of the Mongol Empire on this date.

  5. 1762 Wednesday: Russia and East Prussia sign a treaty of peace.
  6. 1798 Saturday: U.S. Secretary of War William McHenry ordered that the USS Constitution be made ready for sea.  The navy launched the frigate on October 21, 1797, but had never put it to sea.

  13. 1865 Friday: With the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, slavery was no more.  What is important to note is that the Republican Party is the creator and proponent of this amendment, not the Democrats who more than 157 years later claim to be the defenders and protectors of black Americans.  No, the Dems are the party of slavery, of the KKK, of burning crosses, of prison farms, of ‘separate but equal,’ red-lining, discrimination, the destruction of the black family.  The Democrats are the slave-holders who have exchanged their black slaves to lives dependent upon welfare while making the illegal aliens their new class of slaves, perpetual low-wage slaves only valued at election time.  NEVER permit the Democrats to lie to YOU that they and ONLY they are the defenders of black Americans. 
  14. 1877 Saturday: To avoid harassment from the United States Army under the command of Colonel Nelson Miles, Sitting Bull leads his band of Lakota people into Canada.

  20. 1904 Thursday: Pitcher Cy Young of the Boston Red Sox pitched the third perfect game in the major leagues against the Philadelphia Athletics.  It was the FIRST perfect game under modern rules.
  21. 1908 Tuesday: The Great White (U.S.) Fleet arrives in San Francisco, California.
  22. 1912 Sunday: Soviet Communist Party newspaper Pravda commences publication.

  25. 1920 Wednesday: Democratic President Woodrow Wilson outlaws the Communist Labor Party in the U.S.  Thank God, he did something right.  A century later, the Democratic Party has become the ‘Communist Labor Party.’  He must be rolling over in his grave.

  31. 1944 Friday: The Red Army launches its offensive against Sebastopol in Nazi-occupied Crimea.  The Germans cling to the city like rats with many of their Rumanian allies throwing down their weapons and surrendering- the Rumanians know the jig is up whereas the Germans will fight as long as possible to delay the Red Army’s progress.  Meanwhile, the British release Mahatma Gandhi from prison.
  32. 1945 Saturday: The Allies liberate Mauthausen Concentration Camp.  Meanwhile, in the only fatal attack of its kind during World War II, a Japanese balloon bomb exploded on Gearhart Mountain in Oregon, killing the pregnant wife of a minister and five children.  Elsewhere, as the German surrender began to go into effect, the Allies liberated Denmark and the Netherlands.
  33. 1947 Monday: Future drummer with Black Sabbath[vi]—Bill Ward—is born in Aston, Birmingham, UK, on this date.  Ward would perform with the band throughout the 1970s and then off and on throughout the 1980s and 1990s, and even beyond.
  34. 1954 Wednesday: At Dien Bien Phu, French troops fighting at Claudine 5 are shocked to see a platoon of Moroccan soldiers cut their way through the wire and cross over to surrender to the enemy.  The People’s Army immediately launched attacks on this site which cost the French Foreign Legionnaires at least seven men.  Once the attack was repulsed through superior force of arms, the remaining Moroccan troops were stripped of their weapons and propelled to join other deserters clustering around the Nam Youm River.  These so-called ‘internal deserters’ were men who were unable to sustain the fight and could no longer follow orders.  They lurked in wrecked aircraft and came out at night to compete for air-dropped supplies.  Morale is flagging within the base.[vii]
  35. 1955 Thursday: West Germany became a fully sovereign state.  Meanwhile, the baseball musical, “Damn Yankees” opened on Broadway.  Elsewhere, in Meridien, Connecticut, future Acting U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske is born.  A member of no declared political party, he would serve under President Joe Biden from January 20, 2021, to February 02, 2021.
  36. 1961 Friday: Astronaut Alan B. Shepherd Jr. became the America’s first space traveler as he made a 15-minute suborbital flight aboard Freedom 7, a Mercury capsule launched from Cape Canaveral.

  48. 2008 Monday: Three men underwent arrest and beating by Philadelphia police officers after a vehicle chase in a scene videotaped by a WTXF-TV news helicopter.  A jury later acquitted the men of attempted murder and all other charges stemming from a shooting that led to their arrests; four of the 18 police officers at the scene suffered firing while several others underwent disciplinary reviews.   Elsewhere, on the New York Mercantile Exchange, U.S. oil futures contracts hit the incredible amount of $122 per barrel.
  49. 2009 Tuesday: Connie Culp, America’s first face transplant recipient, appeared before reporters at the Cleveland Clinic.  Culp underwent the procedure after being shot by her husband in a failed murder-suicide attempt.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization announces that confirmed cases of H1N1 Swine Flu have now reached 1,490.
  50. 2010 Wednesday: Off the coast of East Africa- 500 miles, no less- Somali pirates seize control of a Russian oil tanker Moscow University with a crew of 23 souls aboard.  Not good.  We suspect the Russians are going to light them up.
  51. 2011 Thursday: Across Syria as protests continue to get out of control, the Syrian government begins mobilizing more troops and firing up the engines of their tanks.  They will proceed to various hotspots and put an end to this stupidity.   In some of the towns and cities, anti-government thugs have even toppled statues commemorating President Bashar al-Assad’s father, the founder of the modern country which is outrageous.
  52. 2012 Saturday: The moon forms a super moon as it gets the closest to the earth for the year.  Meanwhile, five terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, including 9-11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammad appear before a military tribunal.  More than a decade later, these same POS will still be there awaiting trial.  WTF?
  53. 2013 Sunday: The world’s first plastic gun, produced by a 3-D printer by Defense Distributed, test-fires successfully in Austin, Texas; this leads security officials to voice fear that plastic weapons would not be detected at airport screenings, leading to acts of terrorism.   Elsewhere, former U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, seriously wounded in a 2011 shooting at a Tucson, Arizona, shopping mall, received the 2013 Profile in Courage award at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston.
  54. 2014 Monday: According to Brainy History, polio is on the rise as unvaccinated refugees travel across borders; though most prevalent in Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan, infections are now appearing in other parts of Asia and Africa; young children are the most vulnerable.  Meanwhile, a narrowly divided Supreme Court upheld Christian prayers at the start of local council meetings.  Finally, Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams won the NBA’s Rookie of the Year Award.
  55. 2015 Tuesday: What’s more, according to Brainy History, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, announce the name of their baby girl, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana.  Elsewhere, following ongoing mistreatment of its citizens and violations of their rights, Jakarta bans its citizens from working as domestics anywhere in the Middle East.  Who can blame them?  Can’t work for the Chi-Coms either…
  56. 2016 Thursday: Due to out-of-control wildfires at Fort McMurray, the Canadian province of Alberta declares a state of emergency and begins the evacuation of 80,000 residents in the area.   Elsewhere, following the discovery of yet another tunnel running from the Gaza Strip into Israel and additional attacks by militants, Israel responds with tank artillery fire killing some Palestinians including a woman.  Moral of the story- stop attacking Israel and you will be fine Gazans.
  57. 2017 Friday: Effective at midnight, an agreement reached by Russia, Turkey, and Iran will establish a ‘safe zone’ in northern Syria through which NO military aircraft will navigate, including American warplanes.  The ‘safe zone’ will also prohibit military action on the ground.   The United Nations is ecstatic that some semblance of civilization will be restored although Syrian military opposition and jihadists such as ISIS refuse to acknowledge or accept.
  58. 2018 Saturday: NASA launched the Mars In Sight lander from California on a flight of more than six months to the red planet, where the robot geologist would dig deeper into the Martian surface than ever before.  Elsewhere, Palestinians are up to no good once again as a large blast erupts near the town of Deir al-Balah blows at least six Palestinians to kingdom come while injuring numerous others.  Hamas thugs point the jihadist finger at the Israelis who point theirs right back.  Sounds like a case of bomb-making gone bad.  Sad.
  59. 2019 Sunday: Due to Palestinian intransigence and transgression over the past several days, four Israeli and 23 Palestinian citizens lie dead and countless others injured.   Meanwhile, at Sheremetyevo Airport in Moscow, at least 41 die and numerous others are injured as a Russian Aeroflot airliner comes back and makes an emergency landing.   Elsewhere, Juan Guido, president of the nation’s National Assembly, says he is considering a request with which to get the U.S. to invade the country and topple the communist POS dictator Nicolas “Bus Driver” Maduro.
  60. 2020 Tuesday: After the U.S. Supreme Court begins it session hearing arguments from a distance, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg goes to the hospital for what sounds to be an issue with gall or kidney stones.  Politics aside, we wish her a full recovery and a swift return to work.  This woman is amazing, she has survived numerous health crises in her life and always comes back strong.  God bless you.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s charging of those involved in a plot to topple Venezuelan thug dictator Nicolas Maduro, President Donald J. Trump denies any involvement in the so-called ‘attempted coup.’
  61. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, the COVID-19 update for the day: confirmed cases globally stand at 3,659,271; confirmed deaths are 256,929; and confirmed recoveries are 1,197,735 which is extremely good.  In the United States, confirmed cases are 1,233,146, confirmed deaths are 71,921, and confirmed recoveries are 163,841.  In the states connected to this blog, stats for California confirmed cases stand at 56,705 while confirmed deaths are 2,309.  Sadly, Gov. Gavin Newsom won’t provide confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, confirmed cases are 625, confirmed deaths are 17 and confirmed recoveries are 551.  Finally, in Washington state, confirmed cases are 15,557 and confirmed deaths are 862.  No information on confirmed recoveries so Gov. Jay Inslee is behaving just like Gov. Newsom.  Shame on them.  Question: WHY won’t Democrat-controlled states present recovery statistics?  Finally, communist China’s statistics, the place where this curse began remains the same: confirmed cases: 88,423; confirmed deaths: 4,633; and confirmed recoveries: 81,785 same as they were a week ago.  Shame.
  62. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 155,802,002 confirmed cases, +823,116, 3,254,757  confirmed deaths, +14,035, and 133,945,619 confirmed recoveries, +90,024.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,315,190 confirmed cases, UP 40,075 from yesterday’s reporting, 593,097 confirmed deaths, UP 691,[viii] and 26,014,813 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,527.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  63. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, There Have Been 278,256 Chi-Vi Deaths In The United States- feeble old Joe, in another 280.29 days, 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 185,277 deaths.    The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says the Pfizer vaccine for teens should be approved by next week. 
  64. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,751,034 confirmed cases, 62,063 confirmed deaths, and 1,997,994 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,253,929 confirmed cases, 35,492 confirmed deaths, and 1,824,257 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,794 confirmed cases, 485 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 412,129 confirmed cases, 5,593 confirmed deaths, and 201,370 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Washington, D.C., a place  that wants two horrible senators should they become a flipping state: they have 48,041 confirmed cases, 1,109 confirmed deaths, but 33,988 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[x]   
  65. 2021 Wednesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,767 confirmed cases, 6,370 confirmed deaths, and 831,218 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Venezuela, a place human fecal matter such as Antifa and Black Lives Matter emulate: 201,807 cases of the virus, 2,208 confirmed deaths and 184,161 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  66. 2021 Wednesday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,230.34, UP 97.31 points (+0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,582.42, DOWN 51.08 points (-0.37%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,167.59, UP 2.93 points (+0.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.12 per barrel, -0.57 (-0.87%).  The price of GOLD is $1,784.90 per troy oz., +0.50 (+0.03%) while the price of SILVER is $26.51 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,225.90 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.23%) while the price of COPPER is $4.52 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,964.82 per troy oz, -4.47 (-0.15%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.24.     In Nepalese Rupee, one greenback equals 118.26 and in New Israeli Shekel, a buck equals 3.27 and in Paraguayan Guarani, one dollar equals 6,727.00 of theirs.[xv]   Interesting note- prior to the announcement of their divorce, Bill Gates quietly and quickly moved $1.8 billion in stock to soon-to-be-ex-wife Melinda. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.057 per gallon, $2.871 in Florida, $3.807 in Hawaii, and $3.495 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Nevada: $3.513.  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- Ecuador: $1.910 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,251,982,318,772 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  68. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Bill Johnson, R-OH 6th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the Dems are paying a ransom to Northern Triangle countries to keep their illegal aliens in their country.   Next, Tony Shaffer, president of the London Center for Policy Research and former President Donald J. Trump 2020 national security adviser says that socialism and the drug wars are driving people to flee Central America and come to the U.S.   Here’s a laugh- the Vermont state senate has passed a bill that will permit ILLEGAL ALIENS the right to vote in their state.  Wow.  Yet, they don’t want Americans to believe in the REPLACEMENT THEORY…
  69. 2021 Wednesday G: Biden Regime News I– Apparently, Joe Biden is eyeing clemencies early on in his career.  We are curious as to whom these people might be.    Next, the Biden regime is seeking a ‘special master’ to look into the seized electronic devices taken from Rudy Giuliani and Victoria Toensing.   Next, Joe Biden says he is ‘open’ to compromise on his corporate tax hike.  We’ll see.  Moving on, the White House is considering subsidies for nuclear power plants to help them meet climate targets.  Speaking of ‘climate warriors,’ Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district), aka “The Fly,” aka “Baby Evita,” aka Sandy Cortez and Senator Ed Markey, CPUSA-MA, are pushing a $10 billion, 1.5-million-strong (of little Marxists) Civilian Climate Corps because the planet has a fever.  F**k these people.
  70. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– We learn today that thanks to the Chi-Vi, 20 million more Americans (many of them probably illegal aliens) were beset by food crises last year which means Joe Biden will be giving taxpayer dollars to illegals.  Can’t have them go hungry now, can we?   Elsewhere, the founder of BioNTech prophesizes that the Chi-Vi pandemic will continue until sometime in mid-2022, a date we are sure the Democrats hope will extend to the 2022 Mid-Term Elections so they can try to steal those elections, too.   In other COVID-19 news, over half of the people in the world’s democracies feel that governments repressed freedoms and liberties.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, blasts the FAKE NEWS MEDIA for labeling the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Mount Rushmore State in the summer a ‘super-spreader event.’  That’s the FAKE NEWS MEDIA, always causing trouble via disinformation and misinformation.  F**k them.  Finally, the U.S. Patent Office- at the direction of Joe Biden- is considering waiving patent rights on the vaccines to fight the Chi-Vi so everyone can jump into mass-producing this crap.   (Interesting tidbit- a U.S. federal court has overturned the moratorium on evictions.  Good.  Someone has to help landlords).
  71. 2021 Wednesday I: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Facebook votes to keep President Donald J. Trump banned but orders another ‘review’ down the road.   Once this news came out, President Trump blasted Facebook, Twitter, and Google as a ‘total disgrace’ (which they truly are).  Meanwhile, we learn that Iowa officials coordinated with BIG TECH to censor all posts related to the 2020 Presidential Election- so says Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch.
  72. 2021 Wednesday J: Political News I– Each day that passes, it appears more and more likely that Rep. Liz Cheney[xix], RINO-WY, is going to be toast as more and more Republicans are turning on the RINOs plaguing the GOP.[xx]  We hope she is out ASAP.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner forms the Abraham Accord Institute with which to continue pushing for peace around the world.   Next, the POS head of the Democratic Party in Lamar County, Texas, who called Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, an “Oreo,” offered his resignation earlier in the day but then Democrats in his county would not accept it.  Gary O’Connor is such a loveable guy; his fellow Dems don’t want to see the scumbag go.  Well, we do.   
  73. 2021 Wednesday K: Foreign News / Overseas News I– the president of El Salvador has taken over the country’s supreme court (look for Joe Biden to do something similar in the U.S.).  Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Columbia over the government raising taxes on its people.  The protesters, stupidly enough, are demanding socialism.   Next, those good-humored mullahs in Iran released a truly hilarious video in which it showed their military forces blowing up the U.S. Capitol Building.  Good.  We should blow their seat of government off the flipping map.  Now.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates security assistance to Afghanistan be continued even as U.S. forces pull out of that hellish country.  Yes.  We must.  Otherwise, we will be fighting them here in the streets of the U.S.  Hell, they are already here coming across the southern border.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is in London meeting with the G7 leaders.
  74. 2021 Wednesday L: Miscellaneous News I– After a report of one child’s death and numerous injuries, Peloton is recalling its treadmills.  Next, following the resignation of a top attorney, Coca-Cola pauses its controversial diversity plan.  Ah, the pause that refreshes.   Meanwhile, the state of Texas stops a Chi-Com energy company from purchasing Lone Star State land next to a military base.  Wow.  Thank you.   Elsewhere, LeBron “King of Fecal Matter” James apologizes for having started the wrong conversation about the police officer who was forced by the actions of Ma’ Khia Bryant to take her life before she stabbed another girl to death.  (Note- LeBron is little more than a BIG IDIOT over-amped on steroids and social media-likes.  Dumb ass).  Speaking of Black Lives Matter, a New Jersey police officer was fired for calling BLM ‘terrorists.’  They are TERRORISTS.  We have no problem calling spades ‘spades.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday M: Miscellaneous News II– Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, says that ‘Broadway will be open 100-percent by September.’  Uh, okay, trying to save your job, are we?  Next, Atlanta is ordered by the courts to reinstate a police officer they terminated who shot and killed Rayshard Brooks last year.  If you recall, Mr. Brooks was cooperating with cops after falling asleep in a drive-through lane at a fast-food restaurant and then began to fight.  Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms made sure Officer Garrett Rolfe was canned so she could maintain her bona fides with the BLM movement.  Glad to see you back, officer.  Moving on, a new law being considered could upend the firearms industry.   Laugh of the day, some POS New York City gunman got himself arrested after police read his social media posts.  Next, Sid Miller, Agriculture commissioner for Texas says that IF farmers are being discriminated against by Joe Biden, join our class action lawsuit.  Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis signs a new budget that will bestow $1,000 bonuses on law enforcement officers and first-responders.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws- First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #1656 with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 06, 11, 17, 27, 39, and Mega 19.   Out of 119,647 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $10.335 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Lanes Market in Dorris, CA 90263; (2) Lucky Zone Lottery and Cigarettes in Los Angeles, CA 90014; (3) Chevron in El Monte, CA 91731; and (4) Adobe Beverage and Deli in Petaluma, CA 94954.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #843: 16, 23, 28, 40, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 58,518 winning tickets, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $481 apiece.  Good for them!
  77. 2022 Thursday: You know the drill…looks like the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party WOKE stooges are screwing with our numbers…

[i] Cinco De Mayo commemorates the victory of Mexican rebels over the French Foreign Legion, troops fighting for Emperor Maximillian.  In modern times, restaurants and bars have given it new life so they can increase alcohol and food sales.  Police departments across the land make mass arrests of drunken drivers, thus increasing local municipality coffers.

[ii] We promoted the music of Hot Tuna beginning on Tuesday, 24-April-2012 through Thursday, 23-May-2012.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[iv] See previous footnote.

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

[vi] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade.

[vii] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

[xix] It would appear that Elise Stefanik is being pushed to take her place.  Many say she is no better than “Crazy Cheney.” Steve Scalise is backing Ms. Stefanik.  You know who would be good in this sport?  Jim Jordan.  There, we said it.

[xx] Speaking of Liz Cheney, President Donald J. Trump continues blasting ‘warmonger’ Cheney and ‘gutless’ Mitch McConnell.

113. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 23, 2022

2021 Friday F: JOE BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS I- Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.

  61. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  62. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  63. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  64. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.

  67. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  68. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  69. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, which would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  70. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University, and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  71. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  72. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease, but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  73. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland. 
  74. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 144,804,485 confirmed cases, +799,197, 3,073,868  confirmed deaths, +11,781, and 83,220,681 confirmed recoveries, +650,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,717,457 confirmed cases, UP 48,336 from yesterday’s reporting, 584,839 confirmed deaths, UP 10,421, (figures include today’s and yesterday’s)[xii] and 119,056,391 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiii]

  79. 2021 Friday 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 $3.981 per gallon, $2.802 in Florida, $3.760 in Hawaii, and $3.401 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $2.822.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,205,305,997,186 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  80. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.   Elsewhere, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, said that the illegal alien brats are in OBAMA-BIDEN CAGES and NOT Trump cages.  
  81. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden News I– Drooling Joe Biden found himself for being mocked as at his recent ‘climate summit’ with world leaders via ZOOM, he was the ONLY leader wearing a mask.  Ye gods, Joe, what the hell is wrong with you?  Dimwit.   Anyhow, when Joe concluded his summit, he said with gasping vigor, “We’re gonna do this.”  Big flipping deal, Joe.  Do it to yourself, NOT to us.  Next, totally whacked White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki crowed that ‘Joe Biden will be the first president to create 1,000,000 jobs in his first 100 days.’  Oh, please, stop it, we are laughing as hard as we can already.  Enough, dimwit!  Moving on, Joe Biden told Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he is going to call ‘the Armenian massacre a GENOCIDE.’  As it was, the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE the Ottoman Turks carried out against the Christian Armenian minority in their country during World War I.  (Note- it would appear that via this action, Joe is pushing yet another dictatorial nation into the Chi-Com-Russian-Iranian-North Korean-Cuban-Venezuelan camp for good.  Good going there, Joe).
  82. 2021 Friday H: Energy News / Infrastructure News– Much to the horror of liberals, 73-percent of Americans recently polled believe that fossil fuels and natural gas will be with us for decades to come.  Yes, people are interested in renewable energy but until it becomes cost effective and dependable, no one wants this crap.[xxii]  Meanwhile, a new report says that a new proposed gasoline tax is meeting with resistance on BOTH sides of the political aisle.   After the GOP put forth a sensible and less costly infrastructure bill and the left slapped it down, Senator Johnson said it’s all ‘partisanship and not concern for the American people.’  Speaking of infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., says that ‘Joe Biden should concentrate on CONVENTIONAL infrastructure’ and not this WOKE bulls**t.
  83. 2021 Friday I: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– Early today, Democrats began suing the state of Arizona for permitting the election integrity audit to begin and continue.  Later in the day, a judge called a temporary halt to the procedures for some inexplicable reason, but then permitted it to proceed late in the day.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that his team is advancing election integrity efforts across the country.  Elsewhere, New Hampshire passed SB 43 with which to carry out a forensic audit of the voting machines.  Citing the Windham Incident, in this one location, 1,143 ballots for Republicans were magically flipped over to Democrats.  These investigations are necessary.    
  84. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, RINO, is slamming the inclusion of Iran- perhaps one of the greatest persecutors of women and girls- onto the U.N. Status of Women Commission.  What a load of feculent crap to put a scumbag nation such as Iran on a global body such as the one mentioned above.   Meanwhile, following Tony Perkins- of Family Research Council fame- calling for a boycott on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chi-Coms now are trying to cancel him.  Permanently.    Elsewhere, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny is going to end his hunger strike.  Finally, Japan is declaring a state of emergency around Tokyo and three other areas due to surging numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  85. 2021 Friday K: Mass Shooting News / Law Enforcement News–  We learned that late last night in San  Diego, California, a mass shooting left one person dead and at least four injured.  We learned today that NBC once again rejiggered audio from the recent police shooting of Ma’ Khia Bryant who was in the act of stabbing another girl with an eight-inch blade.  As they did with George Zimmerman’s 911 call regarding Trayvon Martin, they edited and fabricated the police call so as to suit their narrative.  Folks, these lying scumbag networks should be fined and/or stripped of their broadcast licenses.   Meanwhile, Nicolas Cruz, the POS who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida back on February 14, 2018, in what we have dubbed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018- could go on trial for his life as early as this September.  (Note- we thought he had already copped to a deal).   Elsewhere, an alternate juror in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin says ‘yes, indeed, the mob intimidate us into finding the way we did.’  This verdict is going to get tossed.  Count on it.
  86. 2021 Friday L: Social Media And Stupid People News– After that big POS Los Angeles Lakers dimwit LeBron “Fecal Matter” James put up his most recent tweet about the cop who shot violent teen Ma’ Kia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, a few days ago, President Donald J. Trump says the turd should ‘focus on his NBA career rather than presiding over the destruction of the National Basketball League.’  LeBron James clearly learned nothing in school and worse, he is down on his knees in front of Xi Jinping doing the nasty for him every day.  C***sucker.  Speaking of LeBron and social media, millions are asking WHY Twitter banned President Donald J. Trump for ‘inciting violence’ while all the while permitting King James to make threats of his own via the platform?  Why?
  87. 2021 Friday M: COVID-19 News / Updates– Today, 33 colleges said that in order to return to classes in the next semester, ALL students will have to show proof they have been vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – with the help of Border Guru Stephen Miller- is suing the Biden administration over its hypocrisy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of illegals without testing them for the ‘VID while demanding states continue the bogus lockdowns the federal government imposes on them (if it can get away with doing it).  Moving on, the U.S. will now permit the use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations to proceed.  However, this comes on the heels of the CDC investigation yet another woman’s death- someone in her fifties- following vaccination for the Chi-Vi.
  88. 2021 Friday N: U.S. Government News– Ahead of their planned pull out, U.S. military is packing up its military hardware in Afghanistan while leaving non-military supplies such as office equipment and appliances behind for the Taliban to put to effective use.   In other truly embarrassing news, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, a true milquetoast if one ever existed, is going to permit U.S. diplomatic missions abroad to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag at the same level with the U.S. flag around the world.  Gee whiz, paint another target on our backs, will you?  Meanwhile, the Biden White House is nominating a ‘conservationist’- Tracy Stone-Manning- to lead the Public Lands Bureau.  Another left-wing loser to be sure.  Finally, SpaceX Dragon capsule blasted off today carrying FOUR American astronauts to the International Space Station.
  89. 2021 Friday O: January 06, 2021, Storming The Capitol / Capitol Hill Riots / False Flag Operations News– It appears that Capitol Hill law enforcement has grown fatigued by lying Democrats’ narratives on what happened on that fateful day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrated the ranks of Trump supporters and then set in motion the largest FALSE FLAG operation seen in the history of our country.  They are pushing back on recent claims by unnamed Democrats that they showed ‘bias towards the Trump supporters.’  They say they did not.   Elsewhere, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is demanding a FULL ACCOUNTING of the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick, someone whom we just learned died from natural causes and did not- we repeat, did NOT- have his head bashed in with a fire extinguisher as liberal fake news media and Democrat politicians have long claimed.   Tell us the truth.
  90. 2021 Friday P: State News–  Florida’s Supreme Court stopped a bid with which to legalize marijuana in the Sunshine State.  Good.  We have enough stupid people already.   Elsewhere, in California, Caitlyn Jenner makes it official- she is running for the governor’s job in the recall of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and some like that overweight, wig-wearing Joy Behar on “The View” are upset.  She was so upset, she kept using the wrong pronouns when speaking of Ms. Jenner which in the liberal WOKE world is a major faux pas.  Yet, liberals routinely get away with NOT doing as they say everyone else should be doing.  What a farce.  Next, in New York City late last night/early this morning, did their best to deface a monument in Central Park, one built to commemorate the loss of 260 U.S. Navy sailors who were killed when the battleship USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, Cuba, on February 15, 1898, the main event that propelled the U.S. into war with Spain.  Police arrested some of the rioters, but we are sure they left the slammer within hours of their arrest.
  91. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new study on elected officials who are the child of elected officials says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, vote to the LEFT of their parents when they were in office.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, said he ‘endorses Senators Murkowski and her RINO buddy, Susan Collins, of Maine.   Next, survivors of the Steve Scalise shooting criticize yesterday’s findings by the FBI that James Hodgkinson who shot up the Republican team preparing for the annual House baseball game back on June 14, 2017, did so because he wanted to die by suicide by cop.  This was the FBI finding we received yesterday and all we can say is that FBI Director Christopher Wray is full of fecal matter.
  92. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that New York state’s planned payments of $15,000 or more to illegal aliens is ‘unacceptable.’  It’s unacceptable when Americans need help, require salvation from all the Chi-Com Virus lockdowns and restrictions, and liberal left-wing government would rather care for INVADERS than for its own people.   Next, Kimberly Guilfoyle endorses former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens in his U.S. Senate bid.   Moving on, Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, vetoed a bill limiting gun restrictions.  He vetoed a bill that LIMITS restrictions on guns in the Natural State, for Christ’s Sake.   The man has demonstrated he is little more than a RINO.
  93. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Apparently, the President Trump 2020 Campaign left an unpaid view in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a $211,000 bill, one they are sending to collections.  Sounds like bull crap but then- we know how it is.  Speaking of President Trump, he may be leaving Florida to spend the summer at his New Jersey golf club.   Speaking of Florida, the okays a bill banning abortions based on disability.  Meanwhile, we learn that the United States Postal Service- the USPS, for Christ’s Holy Sake!- is now doing dirty work for the Biden regime by spying on conservative Americans.  Man, they must have amassed a humongous dossier on the AICPENDBLOG.COM by now.  What the hell is the postal service doing behaving like the Gestapo?  Has Stamps.com hurt them this much that they must take on jobs that have NOTHING to do with their daytime jobs?
  94. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News I– After a violent summer last year in \Minneapolis, Minnesota, BLACK-OWNED businesses in the city say the ‘city has abandoned them.’  These poor people watched Black Lives Matter and Antifa and all the hateful white punks (especially the banshees) screaming and rioting, looting, robbing, raping, and burning, and the damned Twin Cities need to do something to get them back on their feet!  What the hell does it take?  Where the hell is Patrice Cullors and all her millions of dollars?  Where is Joe Biden?  HELP these people.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post was slammed earlier today for their disgraceful ‘fact-checking’ on Senator Tim Scott’s ‘from the cotton fields to Congress’ statement awhile back.  Leftists are scumbags, what more can one say?  In other whack-job news, Climate Czar John F. Kerry says that the administration is exploring a BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX that will slap additional taxes, i.e., tariffs, on nations with weaker climate policies.  Folks, it’s time to make up NICE with Russia or China and seek asylum.  These people are cray-cray.
  95. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1653: 04, 28, 29,30, 60, and Mega 25.  Stay tuned for news on the winners… Out of 111,596 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $14,862 apiece.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,023 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 204,268 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 458 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

98. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, APRIL 08, 2022

1954 Thursday: In the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, having lost Eliane 1 to the People’s Army the preceding night, Lt. Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais approves a plan for Major Marcel Bigeard to take it back later in the night/early morning. The size of the camp has been whittled down from more than 1,100 acres to around 640. Every scrap of land is essential to the defenders as is bleeding the communists dry faster than the communists are bleeding them.

  69. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden debuted executive actions this morning that he is taking to strip firearms away from the American people.  Most of them are feelgood measures for his whack-a-doodle base but even so, some of them have teeth- if anyone will obey them (which, we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have no intention of doing.  NO one is taking our firearms away, no one).  Next, Joe Biden nominated perhaps the worst person to become head of the ATF- the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (and Explosives), David Chipman, the dimwit who transformed the debacle at Waco, Texas, into what it became by lying through his teeth about things that SUPPOSEDLY occurred there, but which did not, and which then led to the deaths of mostly women- many of them pregnant- and children.  This was one of the shining events that occurred during the Bill Clinton administration, overseen by Attorney-General Janet Reno.   Congressman Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district says that Chipman is the absolute worst person to head the ATF.
  70. 2021 Thursday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE–  Texas Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, came out today and lit the Biden administration up for the appalling conditions in Border Patrol facilities holding tens of thousands of illegal alien, river-swimming, or fence-jumping invaders.  He condemns the Biden administration for its shocking lack of compassion and sensitivity and demands they close these facilities now which means these people should be loaded aboard empty airliners and dumped back in Guatemala.  Let THEM sort them out seeing as how they are a major starting point for this invasion.  Build the wall and deport them all, now.  Anyhow, Governor Abbott pointed out the human rights abuses such as rampant sexual assaults on women, children, and weaklings as well as shortages of food, medical supplies, clean water, and proper clothing and bedding.  IF these horrendous practices occurred under the Trump administration, President Trump would be visiting Old Sparky but under Joe Biden, “No problem, amigos, no problem”… Finally, people continue asking where the nation’s ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is.  She has been traveling around the country but nowhere near the border.  At least Cuban-born U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is visiting the border today.  Praise the Lord! 
  71. 2021 Thursday B: MASS SHOOTING AND CRIME NEWS–  We learned early today that in Rock Hill, S.C., former NFL player Phillip Adams shot and killed Dr. Robert Lesslie and his wife, Barbara Lesslie along with their two grandchildren- ages 5 and 9- in their home as well as two air conditioning technicians working outside their home.  One of the techs survived and called in for help and when police arrived, they found evidence that led them to the home of Adams’ parents where they encircled the home after getting his mother and father out of the home.  Adams then shot himself.  No one knows why he did what he did.  Later in the day, following Joe Biden’s mumbling stumbling bumbling announcement on various executive actions he is taking to strip guns away from the American people, a mass shooting occurred in Texas.  Like clockwork, in Bryan, Texas, a gunman entered the corporate offices of Kent Moore Cabinets and shot seven people, some of them critically, but none of them dead at the time of this reporting.  Police are purportedly chasing several suspects so we will provide updates as we learn them.
  72. 2021 Thursday C: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The communist Chinese in Beijing warned their stooge- “Pro-China Joe” Biden- today that he had better not boycott the 2022 Winter Olympics in their capital city.  We say, “F**k them!  Who do you think you are, you commie bastards?’  Next, the Biden administration announced that it is going to lift ALL sanctions on the crap-hole nation of Iran without seeking anything in return.  Good for you, Joe, good for you. Regarding the Chi-Coms, tech investor Peter Thiel says that ‘Bitcoin’ may very well be a financial tool the communists can use against the United States.  Moving on, France is postponing the French Open to May 30 over fears of COVID-19.  Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says the ‘U.S. policy on Russia is both dumb and ineffective.’  This comes after the Biden administration yesterday evening revived the Trump-Russia collusion scam and Russian interference in U.S. elections by announcing he is going to slam Russia with new sanctions for meddling and hacking.  Okay, Joe.
  73. 2021 Thursday D:  NATIONAL POLITICS– Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district has officially announced he is running to become governor of New York.  Next, Governor Ralph “Black Face” Northam, D-VA, has officially endorsed former Virginia Democrat governor and bagman for Bill and Hillary Clinton- Terry “the Punk” McAuliffe[vii]– to become governor again.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district has demanded that “Kooky Kamala” Harris attend FBI and CIA intel briefings.   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is nudging Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson, GOP, to seek another term by giving him his endorsement.   Meanwhile, in a threat to the Joe Biden agenda, following giving his wife a cushy gig, Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, refuses to allow ‘budget reconciliation’ to be used to pass bills nor will he vote to smack down the Filibuster rule in the U.S. Senate.  God bless you, Senator Manchin.
  74. 2021 Thursday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre says he failed to disclose yacht trips he accepted.  Next, we learned today that the Trump administration tried conducting secret talks in Syria with the goal of freeing American hostages across the Middle East.   Elsewhere, the San Francisco schools system- after spending loads of taxpayer dollars- has decided it will postpone renaming schools named after Americans (or foreigners) who might be RACISTS.    Meanwhile, John Gizzi of Newsmax says that ‘John Boehner,[viii] the former speaker of the House and now a political lobbyist for the Chi-Coms is attacking conservatives while ignoring his own lack of character.’  Ouch.

93. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 03, 2022

2009 Friday: The economy continues to crash and burn in the United States as another 663,000 jobs fall by the wayside thanks to the Dems having engineered the housing crisis so as to get a Democrat elected in 2008. Unemployment rate goes up to 8.5-percent which is not good, nor will it improve by much over the subsequent seven-plus years.

  15. 1915 Saturday: The Austro-Hungarians with German reinforcements begin driving the Russians back in the Carpathians.   The Russians had a unique plan that if they could penetrate through this harsh range of mountains, they might be able to knock the Hapsburgs out of the war.  Although not the strongest member of the Central Powers, the core Austrian, and Hungarian troops and not their Slavic allies were up to the task.
  16. 1916 Monday: During World War I, the horrendous battle of Verdun continues as the French mount counterattacks against recent German domains.  The city of Verdun is a fortress surrounded by a series of fortresses (sort of like Dien Bien Phu would be decades later though not as fortified) and the Germans believe if they can punch through, they might be able to bring France to its knees, possibly knock her out of the war for good.

  18. 1918 Wednesday: German troops commence landing in Finland to help their new ally as the Russian Civil War rages between White and Red forces.  Other Allied units are considering landing in eastern and norther regions to help White forces crush the Bolsheviks.  It is becoming a horrible mess.  In Austria, government officials report having received peace feelers from France.
  19. 1919 Thursday: The victorious allies hammering out the post-World War I peace in Paris, France, had sent South African General Jan Smuts to Budapest where a new Soviet-style regime had seized power.  The idea was to negotiate a peace between east and west, but it was failure, the communists had no intention of participating in anything.  All Western diplomatic missions begin pulling out and American wives of Hungarian citizens are to leave with the British.  Things are in an uproar in Eastern Europe thanks to the NEW Soviet Union.  
  20. 1922 Monday: In the USSR, Josef Stalin becomes general secretary of the Communist Party.  Lenin, suffering from poor health did not want to appoint his far more murderous comrade Stalin to this post but Stalin was ‘caretaker’ for the ailing revolutionary.  Soon, Stalin would begin consolidating his power.

  27. 1942 Friday: The Japanese commenced their first all-out assault on U.S. and Filipino forces defending the Bataan Peninsula.  Elsewhere, the Imperial Japanese carry out a firebombing on Mandalay, the capital of Burma, killing thousands of Burmese and British nationals who haven’t yet fled for their lives.
  28. 1943 Saturday: Richard Manuel, future pianist, and vocalist with the Band[i] was born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, on this date.  Meanwhile, a sad incident occurs in Wellington, New Zealand, when U.S. Marines got into a fight with New Zealand troops of Maori origin.  The Marines did not want them entering the servicemen’s club.

  35. 1953 Friday: “TV Guide” underwent first publication on today’s date.  Meanwhile, down in Magnolia, North Carolina, future heavyweight boxing champion of the world- James “Bonecrusher” Smith- is born.  Over the course of his career, ‘Bonecrusher’ would compile a pro record of 62 fights, 44 wins (32 KOs), 17 losses, and 1 draw.
  36. : During the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, heavy night assaults fall on Huguette 6 as the communists continue reducing the perimeter.  Air supplies are having a grim time locating the main camp as the weather is bad.  At other points, the communists broadcast in German over loudspeakers telling their foes to come over and pick up French wounded for transport back to the main camp.  When the stretcher-bearers arrive, instead of wounded, they find mutilated corpses.  Evil.[vi]

  67. 2019 Wednesday: Lesbian Lori Lightfoot wins election as Chicago’s first openly gay mayor.   Meanwhile, the sultanate of Brunei enacts new Sharia laws that demand death by stoning for homosexual sex as well as for adultery.  Civilized nations around the world condemn the new law.  It is what it is, folks.  Elsewhere, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives votes to end support for the Saudi Arabian-led military intervention in the Yemeni civil war and Houthi rebel uprising. 
  68. 2020 Friday: Acting U.S. Secretary for the Navy Thomas Modly fires the captain of the USS Theodore Roosevelt due to his lack of military discipline as well as situational awareness around the issue of security.  Captain Brett Crozier- playing politics to the max- announces that 100-plus members of his crew have shown positive for China’s COVID-19 lab-engineered virus.  He ordered the ship- after spending a week’s time in Vietnam- to put into port in Guam where approximately 3,000 members of the 5,000-person crew will go into isolation.  Captain Crozier, instead of discreetly alerting top Navy brass about the problem, put the information into a memo, one he copied to 20-to-30 people, one of whom handed it over to the news media in the captain’s hometown of San Francisco[viii].  The information alerted the nation’s enemies that the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt was NOT battle-ready.  WTF?  Meanwhile, COVID-19 statistics at the beginning of the day for the planet come in at 1,026,974 confirmed cases with 53,975 confirmed deaths.  In the United States, the numbers stand at 245,573 confirmed cases what with 6,058 confirmed deaths.   As for the DOW Jones Industrial Average, it was down early in the day by 415.82 points sitting at 21,000.50 points at 8:00 A.M. PDT.  Late in the day, President Trump fired Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community ‘watchdog,’ most likely over all the FISA abuses that occurred in the plot to remove the 45th president for being a ‘Russian agent,’ since proven to be nothing more than an attempted coup.  Good riddance, you POS.
  69. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 NEWS– Rasmussen releases the results of a new poll that says a vast majority of Americans oppose any type of COVID-19 passport.  Period.   Elsewhere, a big hubbub continues in Vermont where Governor Phil Scott, R-VT, has released his plan for everyone age 16 and up and who identifies as black, Native American, or any other minority- BUT NO WHITES- can come in and receive their Chi-Vi vaccines.  As Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says, ‘anytime white liberals tell black folks they should do something for their own good is when it’s time to turn tail and run like hell.’  No thank you, Governor Scott. 
  70. 2021 Saturday A: GEORGIA POLITICS– Governor Brian Kemp comes out today and before a mixed crowd of our fellow citizens lambasted Major League Baseball’s decision to pull BOTH the Major League Baseball All-Star Game and the MLB Draft.  He explains the law and urges everyone to read the law.  Even hardcore Peach State Democrats such as Senator Jon Ossoff and Stacey Abrams blasted the MLB for doing this to the state.  There is NOTHING wrong with this law.  As Governor Kemp says, ‘cancel culture must end because if you don’t think it’s NOT going to come for you, you are sadly mistaken.’
  71. 2021 Saturday B: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– Apparently, the Biden administration is going to negotiate a nuclear deal with the belligerent Iranians in Vienna, Austria.  Good luck.   Meanwhile, the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Dwight D. Eisenhower passed through the newly reopened Suez Canal. 
  72. 2021 Saturday C: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame begins airing his new special on the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election, “Scientific Proof,” in which he points out the massive body of evidence that shows exactly how the same algorithms were applied from one end of the country to the other flipping elections using information from the 2010 U.S. Census.   It is rather mystifying (yeah, right) how the same algorithms and the same spikes at the same times occurred in each of the states the Biden-Harris campaign ‘won’ the election.  This is not good, and we must get to the truth.  Then, we must figure out how to expel a FRAUDULENT PRESIDENT from the White House.  No wonder we have a ‘Fort Pelosi’ in Washington, D.C., and no wonder they sent out a crazed Nation of Islam member yesterday to commit a criminal act so the fort could remain standing.  Just saying, folks.
  73. 2021 Saturday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Texas is going to start focusing on securing its elections in the Lone Star State so Democrats won’t be able to interfere or to steal in its elections.  Good for you.  Next, 13 bipartisan states are pushing back on the Biden administration for all the insane laws they are trying to stuff down the throats of free Americans.  Moving on, recent statistics show that Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, aka the Fly, DS-NY 14th congressional district, is among the least effective Democrats in Congress among their 240 Democratic members.  However, she is ranked slightly higher than House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi who we believe is ranked at number #237.   Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, she is extending proxy voting until May 19 so any timid members can phone in their votes.  Speaking of voting, Wyoming passes a voting law requiring Voter ID.
  74. 2021 Saturday E: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka “Sleep-Her-Way-to-the-Top,” Harris is being pressed on holding a formal press conference on the border crisis now that she has been delegated the “Border Czar.”  No one knows where the overly mirthful “Kooky” is?   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that Joe Biden focusing on the WOKE agenda is putting our national security at risk.  You had better believe it.  Next, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, has signed a bill permitting its residents to carry firearms sans a permit.  Democrats are livid.  Finally, Joe Biden is still working at staffing his administration with loads more WOKE, far-left, liberal Democrats, almost all of whom are WHITE men.  Say it ain’t so.
  75. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will drive taxes way up while sending more American jobs overseas for good as well as lowering wages and minimizing benefits.’  Congressman Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘most people support infrastructure but there is so much crap stuffed into the bill such as making ‘school lunches green’ that it’s a mess on steroids.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that the (bogus) allegations launched against Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district could be a ‘smear job.’[ix]
  76. 2021 Saturday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS V– After Joe Biden lectured the American people as to HOW MANY people they could have in their homes on Easter Sunday, he now is taking incoming fire from the very same American people for his plans to have the entire Biden Clan- every single crooked one of them- in a big family get-together at Camp David.  There you go: liberal hypocrisy on display.  Next, there are rumors that the two underage skanks that murdered the Uber Eats driver earlier this week in Washington, D.C., and showed absolutely NO remorse are going to get a plea deal.  Lock the slut bags up.   Next, rapper DMX is in the hospital following a drug-induced heart attack.  Fine upstanding member of the community to be sure.  Finally, a North Carolina house party gone wild occurred early this morning when 3 people were shot dead, 4 wounded, and the rest in the wind.  How many mass shootings have now occurred under the Biden regime?

[i] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

[ii] We began promoting the music of not only the Spencer Davis Group but also Traffic, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[iv] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[v] See previous.

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

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

[viii] Coincidentally the congressional district represented by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

[ix] The Democrats ALWAYS tip their hands as to whom they fear by the bogus allegations they launch at their targets.  Anyone remember former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin?  The Democrats did EVERYTHING they could to destroy her, so terrified of her were they.

82. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, MARCH 23, 2022, UPDATE A

Question: could the Russo-Ukrainian War and the subsequent world ‘anger’ over it actually be a sign of the New World Order of which slobbering Joe Biden mentioned the other day? Think about it: like COVID-19 opened the door to dictators everywhere, this war is going to allow those same dictators to achieve greater control of their subjects. This ain’t good.

  • 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Ivanka Trump has stepped to the fore and donated 1 million meals to Ukrainians.   Meanwhile, NATO intelligence sources report that 40,000 Russian soldiers, sailors, and airmen have been killed, wounded, and/or captured fighting in Ukraine.  Former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine Kurt Volker said of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is projecting propaganda rather than strength.  Next, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is calling for unfettered NATO aid.
  • 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says that communist China is ‘working directly with Russia’ rather than against them.  Meanwhile, the World Health Organization claims that since the Russo-Ukrainian War commenced, there have been 64 attacks on healthcare facilities within Ukraine by the Russians.  In other news, fierce Ukrainian counterattacks on Russian forces have thrown the new ‘Red Army’ back from the suburbs of Kyiv.   Finally, Senator Jon Thune, R-SD, says that ‘Russian citizens- NOT Vladimir Putin- are bearing the costs of the sanctions imposed upon the former Soviet Union.
  • 2022 Wednesday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border catastrophe now for the past 355 days and 269 days since she showed up to do her job.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens since the first day of the year is around $520,179,324 and since Joe Biden became dictator, uh, ‘president,’ the cost of caring for them is around $42,792,148,567.  Since January 01, 2022, we estimate 839,514 people have crossed into the U.S. which makes the conservative estimate of illegals living in the U.S. around 45,214,776.  We believe the number is closer to 85-to-125 million which is atrocious.  (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).
  • 2022 Wednesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Little French President Emanuel “Peewee Herman” Macron maintains that he will continue trying to establish a dialogue with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his invasion of Ukraine.   Next, the Russian regulator of news and information has blocked Google News from its Internet.  Who can blame them?  Google is a scourge in need of being broken up like Ma Bell into infinitesimal parts.   What’s more, Sundar Pichai, the POS head of the company, should be doing time in a federal prison for being a duplicitous scumbag.  NATO General Secretary Jens Stoltenberg says to bolster NATO’s eastern flank to deter future aggression from the Russkies.  Speaking of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization warns Russia against continued nuclear saber-rattling and warns the Chi-Coms to stop fostering lies and other bullshit.

  • 2022 Wednesday O: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump officially withdrew his endorsement of Alabama’s Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, for U.S. Senate.  Apparently, Mo is not the pro-America First guy he sought to portray himself as.
  • 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden warns U.S. governors across the country to take precautions to protect infrastructure from looming Russian cyberattacks.  He also is warning of chemical weapons attacks in the Ukraine which he claims are ‘imminent.’  This telegraphs to Putin that the time is NOW to commit such an act so the U.S. and Russia can engage in a phony war with which to bring about the New World Order of which slobbering Joe mentioned the other day.  Let’s be vigilant!
  • 2022 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Trafalgar poll says that a majority of Americans see the conflict-of-interest feeble Joe Biden faces in the Russo-Ukraine War.  Joe has taken money from both Ukraine and Russia, only Russia gave him a tad bit more than the Ukrainians thus Joe is on the side of the Russkies.   Still, Joe continues being pummeled.  U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that doddering Joe ‘should be warning Vladimir Putin, NOT Americans.’  (Note- must be that New World Order feeble Joe is talking about.  What’s that going to look like, Joe?)
  • 2022 Wednesday R: Political News I– Congressional Republicans are preparing an investigation into Hunter Biden’s notorious laptop, the one in which he maintained photo galleries of his sexual exploits with women, children, and animals.   Next, Congressman Ken Buck, R-CO 4th congressional district, says that ‘allegations of war crimes committed by Russian forces in Ukraine changes world opinion.’  Meanwhile, Congressman Ralph Norman, R- SC 5th congressional district, says that ‘Senator Lindsey Graham’s arguments against Joe Biden’s SCOTUS nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson are spot on.’
  • 2022 Wednesday S: Political News II– Dr. Alan Dershowitz- famed constitutional law scholar and professor- confirmed that Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson will be confirmed to the U.S. Supreme Court and HOPES for a tranny judge one day to be sitting on the nation’s high court.  We are curious as to when the first gay, Muslim, Mongolian midget will be nominated to sit on the nation’s high court?  They are not represented there.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Capitol is slated to begin a phased, reopening beginning next week.  Congressman Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, said of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson that she is nothing more than a ‘political appointee.’
  • 2022 Wednesday T: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– The first female U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright died today at age 84, the cause being cancer.  A Democrat, Secretary Albright served under President Bill Clinton from January 23, 1997, to January 20, 2001.

  69. 2017 Wednesday:  Flipping Disney refuses to cut gay scene in “Beauty and the Beast” in Malaysia as requested and rather than do what the censors requested, the company yanks the film from the country.  Wow.  Meanwhile, a judge in Hawaii blocks President Donald J. Trump’s Muslim ban.

  71. 2019 Friday:  In Christchurch, New Zealand, a ‘right-wing’ gunman attacks two mosques, killing 51 and wounding another 50.  Meanwhile, thanks to Hitler Jugend-like Swedish ‘climate activist’ Greta Thunberg, schoolchildren around the world walk out of schools in protests of climate change.  Another wow. Somebody get this girl some help.
  72. 2020 Sunday: The Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus continues causing mass panic around the world as food service establishments begin shuttering their doors in many cities around the world.  Meanwhile, people continue swamping stores, buying everything off store shelves and leaving them empty for loads of others.  As of today, these are the facts: around the planet (of course, we have no clue as to what is occurring in China), there are 156,400 confirmed cases.  That’s right, 156,400 confirmed cases with 5,833 confirmed deaths.  As for those who have recovered, there are 73,968 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, so far, ONLY 40 people have died from China’s Wuhan Virus.  Elsewhere, former Vice President Joe Biden and Marxist Senator Bernie Sanders debated one another on CNN with no crowd in the room.  What a snooze fest.  Two cantankerous old WHITE men bashing one another for their poor records.  Tom Perez: listen, YOU POS, put Tulsi Gabbard in the debates, they might draw far better crowds than the crap you are running now.  Just saying.
  73. 2021 Monday: DAY 55 of the Biden Regime- today is a busy flipping day, folks.  Stacey Abrams- failed gubernatorial candidate in Georgia and an engineer of the election fraud in the Peach State in 2020 is encouraging the U.S. Senate to throw the filibuster rule onto the dung heap of history so the Senate can ramrod H.R. 1[vi] through to fruition like a Chi-Com doctor ramming an anal swab up the nether regions of a U.S. diplomat arriving in the People’s Republic of China.  H.R. 1 and the subsequent Senate equivalent would forever alter the way Americans vote; however, it would be entirely unconstitutional so everything would fall atop the shoulders of Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court.  Would he uphold the Constitution or would he, too, throw it atop the trash heap?
  74. 2021 Monday A:  The Nigerian government reports that clashes with Boko Haram or a spin-off Islamist group has led to the loss of at least 30 soldiers.  In other foreign news, Kosovo announces that it is moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem in accordance with its signing of a peace deal negotiated by the Trump administration.   Speaking of this momentous occasion, Jared Kushner expresses hope that the ‘Biden administration’ won’t throw the previous administration’s foreign policy successes- most notably the Abraham Accords- onto the garbage pile. 
  75. 2021 Monday B: The United States Marine Corps apologizes for saying hateful things about Tucker Carlson of the Fox News Channel.  Mr. Carlson had expressed incredulity that the most important things in which, the U.S. military in general and the United States Marine Corps in particular would concern themselves with, i.e., WOKE POLITICS such as sex changes and flight suits for pregnant pilots and the USMC responded with hate speech.  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Oh, the leadership are ALL Obama generals and admirals.  NO wonder Democrats want to continue fighting permanent wars with trannys and gays.  Wow.
  76. 2021 Monday C: Communist China says things are going so well with their economy that they are going to pull their lab-engineered COVID-19 relief stimulus from their public.  Their economy is the ONLY one in the world on a trajectory straight up following the pandemic trashing the world.  As if this wasn’t planned.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Cornell University professors are at odds with one another over ending Chi-Com programs on campus, programs that allow Beijing to sow propaganda (as well as BIG BUCKS) on students and faculty alike.  Leftists hate to give up sources of enrichment for selling out their country. 
  77. 2021 Monday D:  The White House is on the road this week as Joe Biden and Dr. Jill and Kooky Kamala and her husband seek to inform the American people of all the GREAT THINGS the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 ‘Relief’ bill is going to bestow upon them, even though the bulk of the ‘relief funds’ won’t be spent until 2024-2028.[vii]  Wow.  Can’t wait.  Still, the media blitz and all the advertisements are going to wash over the country for the next several weeks.  We hope that Joe Biden will remember where he is.  We also learned today that in order to pay for this hoopla, Joe Biden is going to launch the first major federal tax hikes since 1993- who didn’t see this one coming?   The federal government ‘gives us’ $1,400 in stimulus funds, we pay them back $2,800 in federal taxes.  Awesome.  Keep your money.
  78. 2021 Monday E: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, visits the southern border at El Paso, Texas, with other GOP leaders to view the ongoing crisis, one House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi blames President Donald J. Trump for- what?  How does #45 bear any responsibility for the border crisis other than that he lacked the time to finish building the border wall to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens?   In other border news, Texas Governor Greg Abbot says that ‘the lack of a border coherent border policy other than ‘come on in’ under the Biden administration is 100-percent responsible for the humanitarian crisis at the border.’  Still, Republican state attorneys-general are pushing back against the Biden policies favorable to illegal aliens and NOT for U.S. citizens.   
  79. 2021 Monday F:  In other Border News, Congressman Greg Steube, R-Fl 17th congressional district, tells Newsmax today that ‘Joe Biden is 100-percent responsibility for the humanitarian disaster occurring along our southern border.’   His colleague, Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, R-TN 3rd congressional district, says there is a tremendous crisis on the southern border.  The Washington Examiner reports that ONE illegal alien invader facility holding brats is at 729-percent- 729-PERCENT- capacity and NO one- including little Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is down there shedding tears.  Where is Nancy Pelosi?  Where is “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer?  Where oh where oh where are all the bleeding-heart liberals.  DEPORT THEM ALL.  
  80. 2021 Monday G: Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo toured a vaccination site in the Empire State today and after giving a brief speech, he refused to take any questions from assembled reporters.  “Killer” Cuomo’s ratings are their lowest thanks in part to his sexual mischief of groping women, propositioning women, and other misbehavior as well as the fact that the deaths of between 15,000-to-20,000 seniors in his state rests squarely atop his shoulders.  However, fellow serial groper/molester Joe Biden won’t call for “Killer” Cuomo to resign.  Pervs always stick together.  In an effort to deflect blame from his shoulders, “Killer” Cuomo follows the path fellow sexual deviates like Harvey Weinstein have taken before him.  The crumbling governor calls for $7 billion in NEW TAXES on the wealthy thinking that being a ‘class warrior’ will somehow help him keep his job- Harvey Weinstein is in prison.   Add to this another scandal, this one being “Killer” Cuomo’s Chi-Vi Vax Czar hammering county officials to ‘profess their support of “Killer” Cuomo if they want to obtain COVID-19 vaccines for their citizens.’  Wow.  Not good.  All this has led to the collapse of the governor’s approval ratings.  Cuomo- just flipping go.
  81. 2021 Monday H: In other corrupt Democratic Party news and liberal hypocrisy, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser demands citizens show ID before getting their vaccinations whereas when it comes to voting, showing ID is somehow RACIST.  Good for you, mayor.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, 25-percent of U.S. House of Representatives’ members have not yet gotten their Wuhan Virus inoculations.  We also hear that as China Virus cases continue to rise in prisons across the country, prison guards and staff are refusing to take the shots.  So are we.  F**k those pushing this bogus crap.  Speaking of the Hubei Hooey vaccinations, the state of Illinois is blasting the Biden administration over its ‘equitable rollout of the Chi-Com Virus vaccine.’  Race politics as usual.   Meanwhile, medical professionals like the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci warn that COVID-19 vaccine skepticism will prohibit a return to normalcy.  Screw you.   Finally, little Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook unveils a new plan to help their dimwitted followers find vaccination sites.  Question: WHAT did people do before Facebook?  Answer: they did it themselves.  Note- Facebook is going to ‘label’ all posts regarding the Chi-Com Bat Flu vaccine as either true or false. 
  82. 2021 Monday I: A recent study reports that fewer students plan on attending four-year universities and colleges than ever.  No wonder, private schools typically cost $50,000 per year (and some per semester) while public universities can cost $25,000 per year.  You spend that money and America-hating liberals indoctrinate you.  We can’t blame the young folks for not wanting to go.    In other news, another study says that Smartphones can cause ‘sleeplessness, stress, and anxiety.’  Like we say about Facebook and social media, just stop using the phones.  You will feel so much better.  Next, Elon Musk changes his job description from ‘CEO’ to ‘Techno King of Tesla.’  Why not just call yourself, ‘emperor?’  Finally, actor Matthew McConaughey is going to host a virtual concert for relief for Texas.  
  83. 2021 Monday J: In Portland, Oregon, federal authorities are reinstalling the fencing around the federal courthouse following Antifa and Black Lives Matter human trash trying to burn it down.  The best way to solve this problem is to give them some lead.  That will solve your problems extremely fast and reinstall law and order for the community.  Next, the judge in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd says ‘the timing was poor’ in the award of $27 million to the family of Mr. Floyd before the trial was even underway.  Sounds like IF they convict Officer Chauvin, he will have excellent grounds to overturn the conviction.  We shall see.   Next, two men were arrested in the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick whom many believe was doused with a heavy dose of bear spray and suffered allergic reaction to it.  Next, the FBI says that the Nashville bomber was motivated by paranoia and conspiracy theories and NOT political ideology.  Finally, a Chicago suburb could become the first locale in the United States to award reparations to its black citizens.  What?  Question: was Illinois a slave-holding state?
  84. 2021 Monday K: Washington Post (WAPO) news: first, they admit to MISQUOTING President Donald J. Trump’s conversation with Peach State Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a conversation in which, the president was seeking help in investigating the myriad election fraud evidence.  No surprise there.  Next, WAPO reports that the Iranians are demanding a guarantee that IF they return to the JCPOA, aka the Iranian nuke deal, that a future president cannot overturn it, like say, Donald Trump wins a third term in 2024.  Speaking of Iran, they cannot prevent themselves from sharing with the world that the IRG- the Iranian Revolutionary Guard now has what they call a ‘missile city’ with which to terrorize the entire region.  We say, “Joe- NUKE THEM NOW.”  Next, Myanmar is declaring martial law in various suburbs around the capital city of Yangon.   Finally, India’s parliament is considering a ban of cryptocurrencies, and should it become law, India will become the first major company to ban this new form of wealth.
  85. 2021 Monday L: Senate Majority Leader strikes a deal to fund almost $3 billion for private schools.  In other news of major import, Pope Francis- much to the horror of the LGBTQIA+ community says the Catholic Church cannot BLESS same-sex marriages.  He says the church can welcome the homo community and be inclusive, but they cannot BLESS their unions.  Of course, the liberal community is going berserk, seeking to CANCEL the Roman Catholic Church.  This is WHY liberals want to rewrite the Bible which is bullshit.  There, we said it, it is what it is, gay community.  You don’t like the Catholic Church, go be a Methodist or some other crackpot faith.   Elsewhere, the state of Alabama gives President Donald J. Trump an award, noting that he is one of the greatest U.S. presidents in history, this as his detractors continue to blast him.  His critics are losers.  Next, in San Diego, California, an out-of-control car careens into nine people killing three of them.  Police have the suspect in custody- is he or she an illegal alien or a terrorist?
  86. 2021 Monday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,848,281 confirmed cases, +83,791, 2,653,641, confirmed deaths, +2,063, and 67,895,864 confirmed recoveries, +81,450.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,676,645 confirmed cases, up 42,948 from yesterday’s reporting, 540,452 confirmed deaths, UP 1,534, and 115,489,507 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 211,975 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Note: Joe Biden slams his predecessor’s COVID-19 relief plan and appoints Gene Sperling to manage the $1.9 trillion Xi Jinping Bat Flu plan.  In other healthcare news, Amazon.com Healthcare Services is launching nationwide very soon.  Jeff Bezos will provide healthcare to the American people.  F**k him.
  87. 2021 Monday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,624,371 confirmed cases, 56,580 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 352,355 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Alaska, aka the Last Frontier: currently, they have 60,625 confirmed cases, 306 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 820,913 confirmed cases, 6,030 confirmed deaths, and 786,148 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Netherlands, the country where anything goes: 1,151,218 cases of the old Yellow Fever 2020-2021-style, 16,046 confirmed deaths but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, what’s the point: communist nations ALWAYS lie…
  88. 2021 Monday O: Bob Sellers on Newsmax reports consumer confidence is at its highest point since before the Xi Jinping Bat Flu swept across the world.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,953.46, UP 174.82 points (+0.53%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,459.71, UP 139.843 points (+1.05%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,968.94, UP 25.60 points (+0.65%).  The price of GOLD is $1,729.90 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $26.33 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.16%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,217.20 per troy oz, +7.70 (+0.64%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, 0.00 (-0.07%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,373.70 per troy oz, +13.00 (+0.55%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.27 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.18%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.66.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Armenian Dram, one greenback equals 525.00.

  90. 2021 Monday Q: Debra Haaland becomes the first ever Norwegian-Native American secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior.  Meanwhile, the White House says it might support President Donald J. Trump promoting the Chi-Vi vaccine that his administration made possible.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence endorses Sarah Huckabee Sanders to become the next governor of Arkansas.   Next, following last night’s disastrous Grammy Awards, people are up in arms over every chick in the show acting like a bunch of streetwalking hos.  Not the kind of stuff people want their daughters watching.  You know, it’s like, ‘daughter, you, too, can grow up to become a slut-bag like Cardi B.  Something for which to work, baby girl.’

  58. 1999 Friday: Hungary, Poland, and the Czech Republic became members of NATO on this date.  All three nations were former members of the Warsaw Pact.
  59. 2003 Wednesday: Authorities rescued Elizabeth Smart, the 15-year-old girl who had vanished from her bedroom nine months earlier, in a Salt Lake City suburb with two drifters, Brian David Mitchell and Wanda Barzee.  Both Mitchell and Barzee are serving prison terms for kidnapping and raping the girl. 
  60. 2009 Thursday: The administrators of the Sears Tower in Chicago announced they would rename the building Willis Tower.
  61. 2011 Saturday: In Queensland, Australia, Grateful Dead[vii] soundman and creator of the best LSD on Earth- Augustus Stanley Owsley III- dies in an automobile mishap at the age of 76.
  62. 2012 Monday: The U.S. Census Bureau reports that the world now has 7 billion people.  Meanwhile, a section of China’s high-speed rail track collapses, possibly due to heavy rains.  Elsewhere, longtime drummer with the rock band, the Doobie Brothers[viii]—Michael Hossack—dies at age 65 in Dubois, Wyoming.
  63. 2013 Tuesday: In Rome, Italy, Catholic Cardinals meet in a conclave to choose a successor to Pope Benedict XVI.
  64. 2014 Wednesday: President Obama meets with Ukrainian acting Prime Minster Yatsenyuk and vows to ‘stand with Ukraine’ in its conflict with Russia.
  65. 2015 Thursday: After 366,000 U.S. citizens have lost $15 million to telephone scammers who call claiming to be IRS agents, the Internal Revenue Service warns of an increase in these types of crimes.  Scammers call from India purporting to be IRS agents and get debit card numbers, which allows them to drain the bank accounts of the unfortunates.
  66. 2016 Saturday: U.S. primary elections and caucuses continue today.  Florida Senator Marco Rubio, GOP, wins the caucus in Washington, D.C., while Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, nabs most of the delegates in Wyoming.   In the Northern Marianas Islands Democratic caucuses, Hillary Rodham Clinton wins big.  Meanwhile, voters in Guam also go to the polls.
  67. 2017 Sunday: American actor David Burns dies of heart attack at age 68.   Elsewhere, people digging through a rubbish heap outside Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, cause a landslide that claims the lives of at least 48 people.  It must have been one hell of a rubbish heap, folks, one the size of a mid-sized building.
  68. 2018 Monday: British Prime Minister Theresa May says it was ‘highly likely’ that Moscow was behind the poisoning of a former Russian spy and his daughter on March 04.  Meanwhile, the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives announces the end of its investigation into ‘Russian election interference in the 2016 Presidential Election’ which drives the Democrats bat-crap crazy.  Preliminary findings clear President Trump of ANY collusion with the Russkies.
  69. 2019 Tuesday: The British government under Prime Minister Theresa May suffers a second setback and loss in the attempt to fulfill Brexit what with votes against her deal 391 to 242.  Meanwhile in Syria as the fight against ISIS winds down, 3,000 Islamist thugs surrender to Syrian Democratic Forces in Baghouz, the last ISIS stronghold left to topple.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo orders all remaining U.S. diplomats and family members to come home immediately.  This after the Maduro regime threatens violence against Americans as being behind the ongoing blackout engulfing the country. 
  70. 2020 Thursday: CPUSA candidate, oh wait, he is running as a Democrat, Sen. Bernie Sanders goes to the mics in Burlington, VT, and does his best to scare the hell out of the American people.  His solution to the Wuhan Virus, aka COVID-19, a gift from China to the rest of the world all because they took it where the sun don’t shine when they signed the U.S.-China trade deal, is for the American people to immediately embrace Marxism as run and defined by him.  Following upon the heels of the NBA canceling its season, the NHL does the same.  Major League Baseball has motioned that spring training could be on the rocks, too, if not the entire season.  What should be clear to ALL is that the LEFT never lets a good crisis go to waste and anything that will enable them to advance socialism and big government even further is in their wheelhouse.  So far, ONLY 39 Americans have succumbed to the Wuhan Virus, most of them in a Washington state nursing home.  If you have ever worked in such a facility, you would understand WHY this tragic statistic is so.  Of course- according to Bernie and his fellow Democrats, the Trump administration is STUPID and incapable of doing anything to thwart the Chinese-transmitted virus.  In the spirit of everything, we encourage the president to postpone the election until ALL is clear.
  71. 2021 Friday: Today is Day 52 of the Biden Regime.  Not good, folks, not good.  Stick around to discover the truth with us.  First, Democrats and liberals are celebrating the AMAZING SPEECH delivered by “Vegetable Joe” Biden last night, a speech in which, he takes full credit for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  Oh, Joe managed to stumble through 23 minutes of a speech- obviously on teleprompter- and managed to walk to and from the speech down the lengthy hall without falling flat on his space.  As Dick Morris told Newsmax TV, ‘Joe Biden is the rooster taking credit for the sunrise.’  Dick’s right.  Never have we seen something so pathetic, so lackluster, so impotent in our lives.  The enemies of our nation must be wondering how they were so lucky to get this feeble, drooling old fool into the White House.  This is not good for the United States. 
  72. 2021 Friday A: Apparently, the accusers of New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo are facing harassment online.  Sounds like something the Goombah Governor would have his flunkies do.  We hope they go to jail, too.  Speaking of “Killer Cuomo,” Democrats in New York such as the “Baby Evita,” aka Alexandria Ocasio, aka AOC, aka Sandy Cortez, and overweight Jerrold Nadler (along with 10 other House Dems)- along with Big Apple Mayor Bill Di Blasio- are all demanding the beleaguered Empire State governor step down, NOW.  Still, “Killer Cuomo” says, ‘I ain’t going nowhere, I have a job to do.’  Listen moron: the longer you fight this, the worse it’s going to be for you.  LEAVE NOW, especially now that yet another accuser has stepped forward. 
  73. 2021 Friday B: As illegal aliens swamp the southern border and as concerned Americans begin gearing up to head to the border to repel the invasion, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says, “Crisis, what crisis?”  The octogenarian speaker never met an illegal alien she didn’t love.  Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says, “the Biden administration must address the crisis on the southern border.”  Wow.  You go, Chuck, you go!   In other crooked Democratic Party news, Congressman Vicente Gonzalez Jr., D-TX 15th congressional district, even as he urged the United States to divest from the People’s Republic of China maintained a Chi-Com bank account of between $100,000 to $250,000.  Typical Democrat, talking out of both sides of his face.  
  74. 2021 Friday C: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the city of Austin, Texas, for refusing to follow Governor Greg Abbot’s order to terminate ALL mask mandates within the Lone Star State.  Austin is like liberal pus-filled sore in an otherwise DEEP RED Texas.  Go get ‘em, AG Paxton!   Elsewhere, the state of Kentucky’s Senate passes a bill that would criminalize taunting of all law enforcement officers.  Excellent.   Next, New York prosecutor Cyrus Vance Jr., the man ‘investigating President Donald J. Trump,’ says he won’t run for another term. 
  75. 2021 Friday D: Following the disastrous interview with Oprah Winfrey, popularity polls show that Mr. and Mrs. Meghan Markle are dropping fast.  Listening to Meghan Markle snivel and whine about the family that took her in and made her one of them is not only disgusting but traitorous.  Their sickening actions should cancel both her and her husband, the Person formerly known as Prince Harry, to undergo CANCELATION for good, IF the Cancel Culture actually pursued losers.  Finally, Geraldo “Al Capone’s Vault” Rivera says he’s NOT going to seek Senator Rob Portman’s seat in November 2022.
  76. 2021 Friday E: The City of Minneapolis settles for $27 million with the family of George Floyd.  Family attorney and race-baiter Benjamin Crump gets up there and continues blasting those who made it possible.  This guy never saw a pot of racial confrontation he did not want to stir.  The autopsy showed that Mr. Floyd was full of drugs and that his body showed no signs of fatal physical injuries as the prosecution alleges fired M. P. D. Officer Derek Chauvin and three other officers caused the low-level thug.  We still believe Keith Ellison- Minnesota’s AG- is going to blow this case and even with 3rd degree murder charges restored to the pantheon of charges upon which, the prosecution hopes to win a conviction.  No, AG Ellison is going to become a goat.     
  77. 2021 Friday F: Former U.S. Green Beret Army Captain Jeffrey MacDonald, age 77, is seeking release from prison on compassionate grounds.  MacDonald has been in prison for more than 40 years now having been convicted of killing his pregnant wife and two daughters on February 17, 1970.  He has sought release before and has always claimed innocence in the matter, stating that a band of violent hippies murdered his family.   No motive has ever been presented of which, we know, but the Army captain received three consecutive life sentences, nevertheless. 
  78. 2021 Friday G: Arizona five-term Representative Ann Kirkpatrick, D-2nd congressional district, announces that she won’t be seeking another term in Congress.   In other news, the Biden administration is holding talks with Israel, discussing Iran and other regional issues.  Speaking of ‘Joe Biden,’ Ric Grenell says the fact that Vice President Kamala Harris is holding talks with world leaders is extremely troubling.   In other Joe Biden news, he wants every American to be eligible for the vaccines President Donald J. Trump created to combat the Chi-Vi by May 01, 2021.  In other news of interest, President Trump’s COVID-19 coordinator (and backstabber) Dr. Deborah Birx, is leaving government service and going to work for a Texas air purifier company.  Good riddance.  
  79. 2021 Friday H: Host of the Summer Olympics, Japan refuses the offer of a Chi-Com offer of a Bat Flu vaccine.  So would we. WHO is stupid enough to take a vaccine from the country that set the pandemic in motion?  WTF?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Com-run World Health Organization is investigating the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine following reports of coagulation problems and pulmonary embolisms reported in several European Union countries such as the Netherlands, Austria, Norway, Denmark, and Italy.  We are not advocating anyone take this crap, especially the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that uses fetal tissue harvested from abortions both in its manufacture and its testing.  The Catholic Church even warned Catholics worldwide to avoid this POS vaccine.[ix]
  80. 2021 Friday I: As we continue learning of all the PORK in the $1.9 trillion Chi-Vi relief bill, the more shocking it becomes what with inmates on death row and illegal aliens qualifying for ‘stimulus checks.’  Add to that more than $350 billion to bail out BLUE STATE GOVERNMENTS AND LOCALES and one can see the making of yet another Obama-Biden Era PORKULUS in which, the federal government always had on hand a big slush fund with which to fund their supporters in a perpetual money-go-round all the while the citizens of the country suffer.   Imagine, the mayor of Portland, Oregon, Teddy Wheeler, wants several million so he can rebuild his tattered and abandoned police force.  Still, the bill directs $268 billion to education even as schools in many parts of the country refuse to reopen.  Additional hundreds of millions of dollars will flow to Planned Parenthood, to Obamacare exchanges, and to every other left-wing liberal load of hooey Democrats love. 
  81. 2021 Friday J: CNN’s ratings continue to collapse sans President Donald J. Trump in the White House and after seeing porcine loser Brian Stelter sitting in his skivvies with his laptop’s camera lens focused on his crotch area while he does the news, NO wonder.  Did we see him sitting in his drawers either before or after ‘pulling a Toobin?’[x]  What is it with these sick left-wing losers?  Put your pants on you pudgy pig.
  82. 2021 Friday K: Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, and Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, say that Joe Biden and ONLY Joe Biden bears complete responsibility for the disaster befalling our southern border and Customs and Border Patrol officers fighting to stem the massive tide of illegals seeking to invade the country.    In other news, the Quadrilateral Nations- aka ‘Quad Nations (United States, Japan, India, and Australia)- are meeting to discuss countermeasures against the Chi-Coms who are becoming a REGIONAL adversary in the Indo-Pacific Region.
  83. 2021 Friday L: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 118,742,439 confirmed cases, +623,106, 2,632,364, confirmed deaths, +10,420, and 67,253,779 confirmed recoveries, +326,819.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,509,986 confirmed cases, up 41,225 from yesterday’s reporting, 535,758 confirmed deaths, UP 1,012, and 115,036,827 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 207,281 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  84. 2021 Friday M: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,614,568 confirmed cases, 55,138 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases (DOWN from yesterday’s number), 448 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 350,661 confirmed cases, 5,167 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Montana, aka the Big Sky or Treasure State: currently, they have 101,561 confirmed cases, 1,392 confirmed deaths, and 99,213 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 814,250 confirmed cases, 5,967 confirmed deaths, and 773,545 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Indonesia, the largest Muslim-majority nation on Earth: 1,410,134 cases of the old Hubei Hooey, 38,229 confirmed deaths, and 1,231,254 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, how about their numbers: 90,002 confirmed cases (our sources in Hong Kong say multiply everything by 75,000-percent and add the numbers for a total of 71,358,428 confirmed cases, 3,724,401 confirmed deaths, and 65,835,291 confirmed recoveries- and remember- these are still low-end numbers.  Estimates, of course, because communist nations ALWAYS lie…
  85. 2021 Friday N: Bob Sellers on Newsmax reports consumer confidence is at its highest point since before the Xi Jinping Bat Flu swept across the world.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,778.64, UP 293.05 points (+0.90%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,319.86, DOWN 78.808 points (-0.59%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,943.34, UP 4.00 points (+0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,725.80 per troy oz., +6.00 (+0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.01 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.38%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.50 per troy oz, +8.20 (+0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.16 per pound, +0.02 (+0.41%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,376.00 per troy oz, +20.50 (+0.87%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.56 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.08%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.73.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Argentine Peso, one greenback equals 90.78.  NOTE- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.801 per gallon, $3.536 in Hawaii, and $3.235 in Washington state.  Thank you, Joe.
  86. 2021 Friday O: New York’s junior Senator Kirsten Gillibrand has joined the chorus demanding that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo step down, that he is no longer fit to do the job and must go.  Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer, senior New York senator and Senate majority leader also is saying, “ENOUGH!  It’s time to go!”  Of course, NO one gives a hoot about the 15,000 to 20,000 New Yorkers the old thug governor consigned to their deaths when he returned COVID-19-infected patients back into the nursing homes where they infected others.  Then, when they were on the verge of death, Cuomo had them returned to the hospitals so their deaths would fall atop the hospitals and not on the nursing homes.  Cuomo was in effect trying to cover up the deaths that he himself caused.  This guy needs to visit Old Sparky. 
  87. 2021 Friday P: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1641 with a $79 million jackpot on the line.  Remember- YOU must buy your tickets NO LATER than 7:45 P.M. PST.
  88. 2021 Friday Q: In a speech to the U.N. Human Rights Council, U.S. Charge d’ Affaires Mark Cassayre blasted the Chi-Coms for their horrid human rights abuses and genocide of the Muslim Uighurs in Xinjiang Province, China.  He also lit them up on the crackdown on the free people of Hong Kong.  Of course, the Chi-Coms and the other Third World thugs on the ‘Council’ were outraged.  Who cares?  Speaking of communist thugs, Vladimir Putin had his number one critic, Alexei Navalny, removed from a prison near Moscow and taken to a black site somewhere in Russia.  His lawyer has no clue where the jack-booted Putin thugs took him.  We know the poor guy is serving a 2.5-year sentence for ‘parole violations,’ this after the Putin regime tried to murder the man with Novichok, a Soviet-era poison. 
  89. 2021 Friday R: Questions continue arising over the recent Joe Biden-authored airstrike on Syria as well as the previous one back in 2018 when President Donald J. Trump was in the White House.  President Trump wanted to pull the U.S. out of needless wars whereas ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden clearly is a deep part of the industrial-military-political complex putting our country at risk.  Syria is indeed a sovereign country, and we have no business attacking them, yet the warmongers behave as though they are the guiding lights of the Roman Empire, fighting perpetual wars, weakening the country by expending countless lives, wealth, and time when the United States should be continuing what President Trump wanted to do and that was to make America great again.  You DON’T see the Chi-Coms wasting blood and treasure to fight bogus wars, no, they are waiting for the day when their nation collides with ours and it’s not going to go well when they do.
  90. 2021 Friday S: The African nation of Nigeria is under assault again, once again by ‘bandits,’ meaning Boko Haram, Islamist thugs.  The so-called ‘armed bandits’ assaulted another town and its school in northwestern Nigeria kidnapping at least 30 students and several staff members carrying them off into the jungle.  The Nigerian government just spent loads of money to get 180 students kidnapped a week or so ago back from the jihadists.   These very same scumbags kidnapped 279 schoolgirls from their school last month.  Sounds like there should be a concerted effort by West African nations to eradicate this scum and to bury their dead bodies with pigs’ blood all over them.
  91. 2021 Friday T: Attacks against Asian Americans continue in heavily Democratic areas around the country, attacks decried by a mumbling, stumbling old Joe Biden last night in his PRIME-TIME ADDRESS.  We have a theory- we believe the Democrats are paying low-economic black Americans to go out and commit these attacks- we have seen film on various news channels and it’s NOT white Americans committing these attacks- so they can then scream and cry about the ‘heinous attacks on our poor Asian-American fellow citizens.’  Look, when you have a party that infiltrates Trump supporters and then engineers an ‘insurrection’ on the nation’s capital, these scumbags will stoop to any low and this would surprise NONE of us.
  92. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY MARCH 12, 2022, BLOG POST #4,484

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We are unclear as to when we will offer the music of Badfinger, seeing as how we should have promoted them during the lengthy presentation of the Beatles and the band’s various members.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do as this band was among the greats.

[ii] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[iii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.  Hell, we might also do the music of the group’s sisters, too.

[iv] We shared the music of the famed Los Angeles, California, psychedelic rock band, Love, beginning on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  We hope you will check them out as they deserve to be heard.  The debut album occurred on the first day of the presentation.

[v] We began promoting the music of the Beatles and the band’s original members, beginning on Friday, 04-November-2016 which ran through Sunday, 11-June-2017. You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

ELECTION DAY IS COMING AND IT’S EXTREMELY IMPORTANT

70. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 11, 2022

2021 Thursday A: The hits continue coming for flailing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo. You know you’re a scumbag when a reprobate such as New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says, ‘Cuomo can no longer serve.’ He joins the massive chorus demanding the mortally wounded Empire State governor to step down and go home in shame.

  48. 1990 Sunday: Lithuania declares its independence from the crumbling Soviet Union making it the first Soviet republic to break away from the crumbling superpower.  Elsewhere, in Chile, Patricio Aylwin took the oath of office as the first democratically elected president since 1973.

  54. 2004 Thursday: At least 191 dies and more than 2,000 are wounded in the Madrid railway bombings after 10 bombs exploded in quick succession across the commuter rail network in the city, an act that comes to be known as Spain’s ‘9-11.’

  57. 2012 Sunday: In Russia, the citizens stage protests in response to the election of the preceding week in which, strongman and thug, Vladimir Putin, wins a third term as the nation’s president.  Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, 16 villagers—mostly women and children—are shot dead by U.S. Army Staff Sgt.

  60. 2015 Wednesday: The Obama administration announces it will support the Ukrainians in their fight against Russian-backed separatists by providing NON-lethal aid in the form of unarmed drones, radios, ambulances, and in a separate deal, Humvees.  Elsewhere, Jimmy Greenspoon—famed keyboardist with Three Dog Night[iii] (1968-76 / 1981-2015)—lost his fight with melanoma on this date.  He died in North Potomac, Maryland.  He was 67 years-old.
  61. 2016 Friday: Keith Emerson, famed rock keyboardist who played with Emerson, Lake, & Palmer[iv] died in Santa Monica, California, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head on this date.  He did this because of his ongoing problems with colon cancer.  He was 71 years-old.  He also played with the British band, the Nice.   Elsewhere, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un continues chest-thumping by ordering his military to continue conducting additional nuclear weapons and ballistic missile tests.   Of course, the world is shocked.
  62. 2017 Saturday: In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, at least 65 people die, and numerous others are injured when a rubbish landslide buries them.  Elsewhere, problems continue across Cape Town, South Africa, what with fires in various parts of the city claiming the lives of at least 9 people and injuring far too many others.
  63. 2018 Sunday: The government of Communist China- the National Peoples’ Congress- declares an end to term limits thus making dictator Xi Jinping ‘president for life.’  He is the new Mao Zedong.  This will put the dictator on a path to defy the West and terrorize the world.  In two years, a pandemic from one of his biowarfare labs will be terrorizing the world.
  64. 2019 Monday: Israeli President Reuven Rivlin- a thorn in the side to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu refutes the PM’s claim that “Israel is the nation-state of the Jewish people- and only it.”   Meanwhile, the Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, age 82, changes his mind on seeking a fifth term and postpones the upcoming elections after citizens of his country go berserk in the streets.   Elsewhere, the blackout in Venezuela continues into yet another day.  The Maduro regime continues blaming the U.S. and Juan Guiado instead of acknowledging the blame rests entirely upon the regime’s ineptitude and its criminality.   Democratic-Socialists in the United States would love for the United States to resemble that once-prosperous and now-collapsing South American country.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Fallout from the spread of the COVID-19 aka Coronavirus around the globe causes the NBA to suspend the rest of the season including the playoffs and all sorts of entertainment and sporting events to shutter their doors.  President Donald J. Trump goes before the American people and gives a stately Oval Office address in which, he reassures the citizens of the country that the government at all levels is doing everything possible to protect them.  He suspends all flights from Continental Europe for 30 days as the United States continues finding ways to minimize our exposure.  Many believe it is time the Chinese stand up and admit what everyone knows them to have done and that is- following the U.S.-China trade deal- the release of the coronavirus around the world.  Sadly, Tom Hanks and his wife admit that while filming a movie on Elvis Presley in Australia- in Australia!- the pair caught the coronavirus.  Wow.  Finally, when many thought that Bernie Sanders was going to throw in the towel on his campaign, he goes before the mics and proclaims he is going to fight all the way to Milwaukee.  Double wow.
  66. 2021 Thursday: Day 51 of the Biden Regime, how much more can the United States take of this senile president and his unseen handlers?  We expect they are in league with the Chi-Coms and as such are actively selling out the country. Tonight, is the night, folks: “Chi-Com Joe” Biden is going to deliver a 20-minute address to the American people.  The ‘president’ is going to level with us, tell us what we must continue doing if we are going to lick this virus.  We are curious if he will be able to deliver a 20-minute address.  We don’t believe he can so here’s what we think: we believe if we watch closely, the speech is going to feature various takes spliced together to give the IMPRESSION he is delivering an address.  It’s also possible it could be a DEEP FAKE.  We will be watching this ‘address’ closely to see just how fake it is.  We know Democrats will be wetting their underwear in anticipation of “Pro-China Joe.”   Anyhow, Joe is going to promote ‘vigilance’ and ‘hope.’  What a guy!
  67. 2021 Thursday A: The hits continue coming for flailing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.[v]  You know you’re a scumbag when a reprobate such as New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says, ‘Cuomo can no longer serve.’  He joins the massive chorus demanding the mortally wounded Empire State governor to step down and go home in shame.  It appears citizens of the state are more upset with Cuomo groping women than they are the 20,000 or so deaths HIS policies caused in nursing homes what with seeding COVID-19 patients among the elderly and disabled.  Still, ‘how sweet it is,’ said Jackie Gleason’s character on “The Honeymooners.”  Vamanos, Governor Cuomo!   Speaking of Bill Di Blasio, Andrew Yang is leading the polls in the mayoral race.  Billy Di Blasio may be joining Governor “Killer Cuomo” in exile. 
  68. 2021 Thursday B: The Senate is having a challenging time moving along the nomination of California Attorney General Xavier Becerra to become the next head of Health and Human Services.  The only medical experience AG Becerra has is that he never saw an abortion he did not like nor an excuse to deliver taxpayer dollars to the Pro-Death Movement, aka Planned Parenthood.  Speaking of Planned Parenthood, the international ‘baby chop shop,’ (don’t take the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, folks), a judge ruled that Texas can remove Margaret Sanger’s organization from its list of Medicaid providers.  Excellent.  UPDATE- despite opposition, the Senate voted to move the nomination to the floor late this afternoon.  S**t!
  69. 2021 Thursday C: The House Democrats have passed two sweeping gun control measures, bills that require extended background checks and longer waiting periods before one can purchase a firearm, ammunition, and accessories.  Neither of these bills do anything to halt criminals and thugs from obtaining firearms but as far as legal owners go, the Democrats want to take our guns.  As we have said here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM on multiple occasions, we are recommending the stashing of firearms or their transfer to family members and theirs back to you so when the cops come pounding on the door with a leering moron like Beto O’Rourke outside demanding you hand them over, you can tell them, “MY GUNS WERE STOLEN.  I WAS JUST GETTING READY TO REPORT IT.”  Imagine if millions of gun owners do this; it’s the same concept of EVERYONE across the country reopening their businesses at the same time on the same day.  If everyone supports everyone else, government cannot crush us, nor can they take away our business licenses.   It is time for the American people to remind government at all levels who exactly is in charge…it ain’t them!
  70. 2021 Thursday D: Meanwhile, California Senator Dianne Feinstein and Rhode Island Congressman David Cicilline, 1st congressional district, introduced a bill today that will allow government to strip away ownership of AR-15 rifles and similar weapons.  Gun-grabbing Democrats never rest which is why the National Rifle Association and various state pistol and rifle associations never rest either.   We urge everyone to obtain a lifetime membership with the NRA, a lifetime membership with the California Rifle and Pistol Association,  the same with the Hawaii Rifle Association, likewise with the Washington State Rifle and Pistol Association, and the same in every other state in the union.  We must defend our God-given rights of gun ownership. 
  71. 2021 Thursday E: As California Governor Gavin “Silver Spoon” Newsom continues floundering like his opposite in New York, things are suddenly beginning to reopen including state attractions such as Alcatraz Island and its penitentiary.  Flailing governors will do anything to save their souls.  Sadly, for Governor Newsom, the effort to recall him has 1.8 verified signatures, well over the 1.5 million to get him on a recall ballot.  We hope to boot this sissified POS out of office as quickly as possible. 
  72. 2021 Thursday F: The federal government reports 712,000 new claims for jobless benefits which is lower than anticipated.  However, 4.5 million of our fellow Americans are still drawing benefits.  In other business news, Rolls Royce- no longer a manufacturer of fine automobiles but of aircraft engines- announces a loss in 2020 of $5.6 billion.   Meanwhile, Parler has been denied yet again a return to the Apple store of apps.  What is up with that? 
  73. 2021 Thursday G: The ‘Biden EPA’ is going to reconsider Trump era rules on lead in drinking water.  In other ‘Biden administration’ news, reports are that there are 3,200 illegal alien minors and brats stuffed into the same kinds of animal pens as they were during the Obama-Biden administration, the very same hellholes of rape, murder, and torture they tried to pass off onto Donald J. Trump.  We think it’s more humane to load them aboard trains, buses, semi-trucks, even sidelined aircraft and send them back to ONE point and ONE point ONLY: to Honduras.  Seeing as how this is where the caravans commence forming, we should send them back and dump them out.  At the same time, we must continue securing the borders, laying in minefields, antipersonnel and antivehicle obstacles and pits, foo gas pits, and everything else we can to stop the tidal wave of humanity that will never assimilate.  Of course, if the ‘Biden administration’ wants to give us $5,000 per month to take in an illegal alien brat and to pay for their keep, many Americans will be glad to do that, especially members of NAMBLA.  It is what it is…[vi]
  74. 2021 Thursday H: In the joke of the day, shock jock newsman Geraldo Rivera says he is considering a run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Ohio Senator Rob Portman next year.  Wow.  Go for it ‘Mustache!’  Next, Britney Spears’ dad’s team blasts Congressmen Matt Gaetz, R-FL, and Jim Jordan, R-OH, blasting them on their crazy conservatorship of the popular pop icon.  They pointed out yesterday that conservatorships such as the one Britney’s dad has her detained under is wrong and must be stopped.  It’s unfair to those who are capable of running their own lives.  We tend to agree.  Let Britney go!   In other interesting news, the governor of Mississippi, Tate Reeves, signs a bill into law today that defends girls’ and women’s sports from Trannys.  We believe there should be a THIRD league of scholastic and collegiate sports (and perhaps even at the Olympics level) of tranny sports.  Let the Trannys play sports with one another, let boys and men compete against one another and the same for girls and women.  Enough is enough, stop coddling people with mental issues.  Help them instead. 
  75. 2021 Thursday I: Texas Governor Greg Abbot is sending 500 Texas National Guardsmen to the southern border to help defend it from the tidal wave of illegal aliens a feeble Joe Biden invited to come here.  Again, we say, “Defend the border using whatever tools and weapons of war necessary.”  No other nation would ever permit outrageous behavior such as this to continue unimpeded.  In other distressing news, the head of the Indo-Pacific command of the U.S. military laments the fact that the Chi-Coms are cleaning our clocks in the size of our militaries.  We have problems, folks, the Chi-Coms NEVER fight foreign wars while the U.S.- except under President Donald J. Trump- fights wars all over the place and is again.  This is among the quickest ways to reduce the effectiveness of our military.  Just ask the Roman Empire.
  76. 2021 Thursday J: President Donald J. Trump says former NFL great Hershel Walker would make a great U.S. senator from Georgia.  Watch out, Reverend Raphael Warnock (how can a man of the cloth serve both God and Karl Marx at the same time?).  We think Walker would make a GREAT senator!  Meanwhile, retired NFL player Jack Brewer tells Newsmax that ‘the City of San Francisco spends roughly $61,000 per year on each tent on public property within the fecal-rich city by the bay.’  This is frigging crazy!  You could buy every homeless person a tiny house and pay their utilities. 
  77. 2021 Thursday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 118,119,333 confirmed cases, +354,714, 2,621,944, confirmed deaths, +8,197, and 66,926,960 confirmed recoveries, +189,463.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,465,761 confirmed cases, up 62,965 from yesterday’s reporting, 534,746 confirmed deaths, UP 1,627, and 115,014,297 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 206,269 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  78. 2021 Thursday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,611,884 confirmed cases, 54,961 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next her
