130. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2022

1943 Monday: The coming late spring-early summer offensive in the Soviet Union is getting in motion. Operation Citadel- the attack on the Kursk Salient in the Ukraine- has been given the go-ahead by Hitler himself even though German intelligence assets have told the Fuhrer that the Soviets have established a massive defense in depth. This will be the greatest clash of armor and tactical aircraft the world has ever seen.

  62. 2008 Saturday: Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, takes the lead in the superdelegate count- a very peculiar thing the Democrats have to steal nominations in presidential elections for their chosen candidate.  The first-term Illinois senator is smoking Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY.

  64. 2010 Monday: Solicitor General Elena Kagan is the youngest nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court and the third woman.  Elsewhere, jihadists carry out a wave of suicide attacks across Iraq, blowing up at least 102 unsuspecting souls and injuring more than 200.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace.’

  68. 2014 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Brazilian police distribute pamphlets to World Cup visitors with instructions on how to behave in the event of a robbery; law enforcement means the ‘advice’ to protect victims from injury or death during crime.

  71. 2017 Wednesday: To the delight of environmentalists everywhere, the U.S. Geological Service releases a study claiming that some glaciers in Montana have receded by 85-percent over the past half-century.  No wonder imbeciles such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the world is coming to an end soon.  Sadly, the Sun is the sole driver of all climatic changes throughout the entire Solar System.  Conversation and fighting pollution is indeed important but the Earth- and other planets- have all gone through periods of climate change throughout the history of said Solar system.  Meanwhile, to the ‘horror’ of Democrats, President Donald J. Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).
  72. 2018 Thursday: Following Iran firing missiles into Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria, the IDF lights up Iranian targets in Syria with 70 missiles, blowing up numerous installations and other military infrastructure.  Of course, Iran claims Israel started the fight.

  76. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,304 chi-vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, the 46th president is shy 182,305 deaths.      
  77. 2021 Monday 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: 3,759,618 confirmed cases, 62,314 confirmed deaths, and 2,003,503 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,272,102 confirmed cases, 35,785 confirmed deaths, and 1,853,131 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,267 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Northern Marianas Islands, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands become states: they have 170 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[x]

  79. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,742.82, DOWN 34.92 points (-0.10%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,401.86, DOWN 350.38 points (-2.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.43, DOWN 44.17 points (-1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.85 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.011%).  The price of GOLD is $1,835.50 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.44%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,249.50 per troy oz, -16.00 (-1.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,952.91 per troy oz, +26.40 (+0.90%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 15.18 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, a buck equals 10,154.00 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.33 of theirs.[xv]       
  80. 2021 Monday 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 $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  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- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 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.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by the Beach Boys- “Surfin’ USA”- came out on March 25, 1963, and featured the same lineup of Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals).  This album continued the new group’s rise to the top via tunes such as the title track, “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Shut Down.”  The Beach Boys were not content to ride the wave with just one genre of music, i.e., surf music, as numerous copycats were jumping aboard the surf train.  They also were delving into their love of hot rods, hot chicks, and wild times in So-Cal.  Hawthorne, California, would never be the same nor would the world.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[xix] Here is what WE think: like the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico blew up back in 2010, at the time many of us had our suspicions that the Obama-Biden administration had some foreknowledge of that event and used to shut down offshore oil drilling for years.  They shut down drilling off our coasts but allowed the rigs to relocate off the coast of Brazil to drill for oil down there.  Likewise, we think the Russian-backed Darkside hacking group shut this extremely important pipeline so as (1) to cut the amount of oil in the country; (2) to drive up the costs of oil and oil-based products; and (3) to help hasten the bullshit Green New Deal through to being.  Mark our words- Olaf Bologolo.

Andrew Cuomo of New York is going to hit every out-of-state medical professional who answered his call to come help the Empire State through its (self-imposed) COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis with state income taxes.  Currently, there are 3,755,341 confirmed cases of Kung Flu worldwide, 263,831 confirmed deaths, and 1,245,415 confirmed recoveries.  Thank you, communist China.  In the United States, we have 1,259,604 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Flu, 74,577 confirmed deaths, and 170,859 confirmed recoveries.  In California, we have 59,698 confirmed cases and 2,439 confirmed deaths but no mention of recoveries.  In Hawaii, we have 626 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 588 confirmed recoveries while in Washington state, there are 15,905 confirmed cases and 870 confirmed deaths but like California, no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Curious.  Meanwhile, communist China claims 88,423 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Flu, 4,633 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Got to love their honesty (joke).
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: Long-time vocalist with the British rock band Bad Company[vi] (following the departure of original vocalist Paul Rodgers) Brian Howe died at age 66 in Lake Placid, Florida.  He served as the band’s vocalist from 1986 to 1993 and kept the band’s success alive.   Meanwhile, Venezuela announces that it is going to try the so-called ‘mercenaries’ captured a few days earlier by its armed forces in the nation’s civil courts, including the two supposed American ringleaders.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. will do ‘everything in its power to return U.S. citizens to the United States.’
  65. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 156,666,845 confirmed cases, +837,588, 3,268,876  confirmed deaths, +13,574, and 134,841,720 confirmed recoveries, +89,611.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,366,320 confirmed cases, UP 44,947 from yesterday’s reporting, 593,987 confirmed deaths, UP 839,[vii] and 26,014,813 confirmed recoveries, UP 79,672.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  66. 2021 Thursday A: Note: since Joe Biden became president on JANUARY 20, 2021, there have been 279,095 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 219.83 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 184,438 deaths.      
  67. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,753,201 confirmed cases, 62,158 confirmed deaths, and 2,000,253 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,258,433 confirmed cases, 35,559 confirmed deaths, and 1,831,455 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,922 confirmed cases, 486 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 413,222 confirmed cases, 5,609 confirmed deaths, and 201,532 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Vermont, a place  that has two horrible senators- Bernie Sanders and Patrick Leahy should they become a flipping state: they have 23,296 confirmed cases, 249 confirmed deaths, but 21,007 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[ix]   
  68. 2021 Thursday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,828 confirmed cases, 6,374 confirmed deaths, and 831,331 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Bosnia and Hercegovina, a once communist country (well, part of a country) but now is free: 200,353 cases of the virus, 8,762 confirmed deaths and 163,445 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  69. 2021 Thursday D:  Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,548.53, UP 318.19 points (+0.93%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,632.84, UP 50.42 points (+0.37%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,201.62, UP 34.03 points (+0.82%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.82 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.17%).  The price of GOLD is $1,814.70 per troy oz., -1.00 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $27.39 per troy ounce, -0.09 (-0.33%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.00 per troy oz, -1.00 (-0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.60 per pound, 0.00 (+0.04%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,944.02 per troy oz, +0.81 (+0.03%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,300.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.     In Peruvian Nuevo Sol, one greenback equals 3.82 and in Philippine Peso, a buck equals 47.88 and in Polish Zloty, one dollar equals 3.79 of theirs.[xiv]     
  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.

108. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2022

2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election. The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’ Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See! See! The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’ Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…

  61. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low-cost foreign workers. 
  62. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  63. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  64. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Saturday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former 72nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul H. O’Neill died at age 84.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, to December 31, 2002.

  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  68. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

  70. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 81.80 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.98.[xvi]

  72. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS– in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I– Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously, and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021, and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  76. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III– Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin, which is not right, but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  77. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I– Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in an advantageous position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  78. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  79. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 566,404 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.

[i] This is the TRUE government of China, Nationalist China which is FREE China.  Although these people inhabit Taiwan, the former island of Formosa, they are the true owners of mainland China, too, and the sooner they reclaim their birthright, the sooner the world will heal.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.

[iv] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[v] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[vi] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vii] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.

[viii] Not sure when we will begin celebrating the music of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts but when we do…you will be among the first to know.

[ix] As to when we will celebrate the life, times, and music of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, we haven’t a clue so stay alert for the day we finally do.

[x] We doubt we will ever do the music of Green Day.

[xi] We hope to celebrate the music of Bill Withers one day.  Please stay alert for when that day arrives.  You will be glad you did.

[xii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

107. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 17, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell. We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions. We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Douamont.  Fighting is fierce and ongoing.   Elsewhere, heavy fighting between German colonial troops and their Askaris and a South African force erupts around the village of Kondona Irangi.  The Allies have had a hell of a time getting the Germans into a fixed fight and after the Kaiser’s troops inflict heavy losses on their opponents, they melt off into the terrain.
  20. 1917 Tuesday: A bill in Congress to establish Daylight Saving Time suffered a defeat; however, lawmakers managed to pass it a few months later.   Elsewhere, during World War I, British and Egyptian troops begin assaulting Ottoman Turk positions in and around Gaza.  The fight to liberate Palestine from the Turks is underway.

  32. 1960 Sunday: American Samoa sets up a constitutional government.
  33. 1961 Monday: Some 1,500 CIA-trained Cuban exiles launched the disastrous Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba with which to topple communist thug dictator, Fidel Castro- or so the plan went- on this date.  However, President John F. Kennedy’s plan went awry from the start as Castro’s forces crushed the incursion by the third day.  The CIA was going to provide the freedom fighters with air cover but then President Kennedy and his brother, U.S. Attorney General Robert F. “Bobby” Kennedy got cold feet and left them to their demise.

  47. 2005 Sunday: Indonesians across the country have been participating in anti-Israel and anti-American protests, mostly due to the U.S. invasion of Iraq and Israel, well, Muslim nations are always angry with Israel.  It is what it is.
  48. 2006 Monday: A Palestinian POS- a member of Islamic Jihad- killed 11 people and wounded loads of others when he detonated a bomb in the old bus station in Tel Aviv.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.  A spokesperson for Hamas called it ‘an act of self-defense.’
  49. 2007 Tuesday: U.S. military deaths in Iraq have now surpassed 3,300 what with at least 58 being killed so far this month.  Not good.  Iraq says we killed three of their law enforcement officers today while civilians claim the U.S. fires on random families as they go about their daily lives.  We doubt this.
  50. 2008 Thursday: Chairman Lee Hung-Kee of the Samsung Group finds himself under indictment as on tax evasion and breach of trust.  Say it ain’t so.
  51. 2009 Friday: The Obama administration releases four memos from his predecessor President George W. Bush’s administration outlining torture of detained terrorist suspects.  President Obama promises no prosecutions for CIA agents which makes the leftists who voted for him thinking they were going to get some payback even more angry.   Meanwhile, a new study hits the news cycle claiming that the victims of most airstrikes in Iraq are ‘women and children.’  Somehow, we knew this would be the case…sounds like Hamas talking.
  52. 2010 Saturday: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, calls for the expulsion of the United States from the international nuclear system because their religion prohibits the use of nuclear weapons, and the Obama administration is saying hateful stuff about their intentions.
  53. 2011 Sunday: The Mid-April 2011 southern United States tornado outbreak results in over 30 deaths; North Carolina is the state worst affected.  Elsewhere, law enforcement authorities in Beijing go on a rampage, scooping up underground Protestant church members and whisking them off to holding pens.  So much for freedom of religion.  Oh, wait- the Chinese communists don’t have ‘freedom of religion.’ 
  54. 2012 Tuesday: Senior members of the U.S. government admit that during the 6th Summit of the Americas that 11 U.S. Secret Service agents and possibly some military personnel were schlepping as many as 20 hos while in country in Colombia protecting President Barack Obama and other diplomats.
  55. 2013 Wednesday: In the U.S., a centerpiece proposal on background checks aimed at tightening gun control, fails in a Senate vote.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, border authorities are preventing South Koreans from supplying their fellow countrymen inside the now-shuttered Kaesong industrial zone.  The North Koreans want their apologies after yesterday’s burning of North Korea’s leaders in Seoul.
  56. 2014 Thursday: NASA’s Kepler space telescope confirms the discovery of the first Earth-sized planet in the habitable zone of another star.  Elsewhere, following the ferry disaster off South Korea, Korean navy divers continue searching for 290 people who still are missing.  What a mess.  Meanwhile, the Ukrainian military is angry over the previous day’s events what with the loss of six armored personnel carriers to ‘pro-Russian mobs.’  The unit that lost its vehicles is disbanded and its members charged with crimes of aiding and abetting the Russians.
  57. 2015 Friday: Russian leader Vladimir Putin accuses the Obama regime of ‘destabilizing the Ukraine’ by sending U.S. paratroopers to train Ukraine’s reserve military forces.  Sadly, even with a ceasefire agreement between Ukraine and ‘separatist rebels’ (who are really Russian and Chechen special forces), fighting continues unabated.  Elsewhere, as fighting continues in Iraq’s Anbar Province as ISIS continues drawing closer to Ramadi, civilians begin fleeing the city. 
  58. 2016 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues around the Afghan city of Kunduz.  The Taliban are trying to encircle the city so they can cut it off from the outside, but Afghan government forces are having none of it.  They are giving as good as they get.  Taliban infiltrators are trying to penetrate government lines so as to set off attacks from within the city itself.
  59. 2017 Monday: The Chinese continue infringing upon the borders of India by holding first-ever military drills with Nepal.  Communists are like syphilis as they continue to spread and the only thing that can stop them is cutting them off the world body.  Meanwhile, Palestinian prisoners held in Israeli holding pens are on a hunger strike, protesting their food rations and quality.  Stop causing trouble and you can return home.
  60. 2018 Tuesday: Disgraced former FBI Director James Comey, detested by both Democrats and Republicans, publishes his (comic) book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  Big whoop.  It sinks almost as soon as it hits the bookstores.   Elsewhere, the United States government releases the names of Japanese military and medical personnel who took part in the infamous activities of Unit 731.  This unit conducted medical experiments that rivaled the cruelty of ones conducted by their Nazi allies during World War II.  When the war ended, the U.S. scooped up 3,607 of the unit’s members and in exchange for not prosecuting them for war crimes also scooped up all their scientific information (as most likely did the Soviets).  It was horrible times back then.
  61. 2019 Wednesday: After an 18-year-old female obsessed with the Columbine massacre begins making threats, schools in Denver, Colorado, undergo closure until police locate her dead body.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security agents apprehend a Russian hit squad responsible for slaying a Ukrainian politician and were planning additional attacks in their country at the behest of Vladimir Putin.
  62. 2020 Friday: Although there is positivity as to how the United States is contending with the Chinese lab-engineered COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world, it is still taking its toll.  At the time of this posting, the United States acknowledges 661,712 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 33,049 confirmed deaths but 58,360 confirmed recoveries which is amazing.  Around the globe, there are 2,224,426 confirmed cases of this suspect disease, 153,177 confirmed deaths but 565,957 confirmed recoveries which is truly grand.   China- get this- is beginning to tell the truth but is still lying as far as many of us believe. They have updated their total confirmed case number to 88,273 what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 82,487 confirmed recoveries.  However, everyone understands that communist nations always LIE, that they do everything possible to cover up disasters, which is precisely what the People’s Republic of China is doing.  As for the Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closed at 24,242.49, UP 704.81 (2.99%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,650.14, UP 117.78 (1.38%); and the S & P closed at 2,874.56, UP 75.01 (2.68%).   Some states around the country are beginning to undergo reopening procedures but hardcore Democrat-controlled states continue extending their mitigation efforts in the hopes of tanking the economy if they can.  We believe, however, that these Democrat leaders are going to pay a horrendous price in the next 2-3 election cycles.  Keep it up!
  63. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 140,379,953 confirmed cases, +1,105,338, 3,007,708  confirmed deaths, +18,118, and 79,972,688 confirmed recoveries, +613,470.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,824,596 confirmed cases, UP 142,550 from yesterday’s reporting, 572,155 confirmed deaths, UP 1,624, and 119,025,387 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.[vii]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  64. 2021 Saturday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 246,196 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  65. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,714,406 confirmed cases, 60,883 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,162,067 confirmed cases, 34,404 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,510 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 385,695 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Connecticut, the home of two of the absolute worst senators in U.S. history- lying Dick Blumenthal and dimwit Chris Murphy: they have 329,062 confirmed cases, 7,995 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii] 
  66. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,936 confirmed cases, 6,331 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tunisia, the original flashpoint for the Arab Spring: 281,777 cases of the virus, 9,639 confirmed deaths and 232,643 confirmed recoveries.[ix]  
  67. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Guinean Franc, one greenback equals 9,947.00 and in Guyana Dollar, a buck equals 207.98.[x]
  68. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.963 per gallon, $2.829 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.365 in Washington state.[xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $2.847.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,182,529,180,837 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xii]
  69. 2021 Saturday F: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz blasted Democrats by saying ‘it would be a disaster to add additional justices to the U.S. Supreme Court’ which Democrats now want to do.  They claim that President Donald J. Trump and then-Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘got away with stealing two Supreme Court seats, the one Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch now holds as well as the one Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett now holds.’  According to Congressman Jerrold “Dough Boy” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, and Senator Ed Markey, DS-MA, both far-left losers claim both those seats belong to the Democrats, so they believe the only thing to do is to expand the number of justices on the court.  Wow.   Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, slams the Democrats over their court-packing scheme, saying it’s the worst thing she has seen since coming to Congress.
  70. 2021 Saturday G: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND II– Corey Lewandowski told Newsmax TV that the Chi-Coms pose a greater danger to the United States than do the Russians.  We concur.  Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that the ‘Russian bounty story,’ the one the Fake News media and liberal Democrats hammered President Donald J. Trump with for about half a year last year, a story we now know to be bogus,[xiii] demonstrates the hypocrisy of both the liberal media and of Joe Biden.  They lie through their teeth and then sweep it under the rug. 
  71. 2021 Saturday H: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND III– Federal officials reverse the fetal tissue research ban so scientists can once again use the remains of the aborted in their medical studies.  How nice.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland erased Trump-era limits on consent decrees on the nation’s police agencies.  Once again, the left wants to politicize every police department as they are attempting to do with every other branch of the federal government.   Elsewhere, former House speaker and BIG LOSER John Boehner stands to rake in $20 million with his pro-pot and anti-GOP endeavors.  What a POS.  Next, Roger Stone is being sued for back taxes.  Finally, for some inexplicable reasons, following GOP leadership pushing back against the formation of an America First Caucus in the House, it seemingly now is not going to happen.  That sucks.  Who did it?  Kevin McCarthy?  Steve Scalise?  That skank, Liz Cheney?  They all need to go.  
  72. 2021 Saturday I: ODDS ‘N’ ENDS OF THE WEEKEND IV– Gary Gensler took the oath of office today to become the next head of the Securities and Exchange Commission.   Moving on, U.S. Secretary of the Interior Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the position has erased 12 President Donald J. Trump climate policies.  Bet you feel good, Madam Secretary.
  73. 2021 Saturday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The Iranians say they know who messed up their Natanz nuclear facility, but the dirty dog somehow evaded their dragnet and escaped the country.  Hmmm.  They named this person as 43-year-old Reza Karimi, a person whom they claim somehow committed a dastardly act of sabotage and then skipped the country hours before the computers were trashed.  They have gone to Interpol seeking his immediate arrest and extradition back to the glorious Islamic Republic of Iran.  We hope he stays safe.  Elsewhere, incredibly stupid Alexei Navalny, Vladimir Putin’s Number One Critic, a person poisoned by Putin’s thugs, who then found a way to get to Germany for treatment, and then returned to the Motherland.  Once there, he was tried and sent to prison for bogus crimes and is now being tortured and force-fed since he is on a hunger protest.  Why did you return to Russia?   Finally, Prince Philip underwent burial today.  The Royal Family was there, and Meghan Markle sent a wreath and a hand-written card.  Awesome.
  74. 2021 Saturday K: SUPER LOTTO AND POWERBALL DRAWINGS– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3552 with a $38 million on the line: 02, 07, 12, 29, 44, and Mega 03.  Out of 122,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $10,574 apiece.  Here are the four winners: (1) Chevron, Folsom, CA 95630 (2) Chevron, Corona, CA 92879 (3) 7-11, San Diego, CA 92128 and (4) Ralphs, San Diego, CA 92127.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a prize of $79 million on the line: 10, 21, 26, 41, 49, and Powerball 25.  Out of 47,609 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $13,607 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.  We do not seek to offend our readers (or those claiming to be readers); no, we seek to enlighten, elucidate, and educate our readership in the pursuit of the truth and the interaction of various opinions.  We hope you seek the same with us instead of being woke crybabies.

Happy Easter to my Christian friends, colleagues, and neighbors.  For my Jewish friends, neighbors, family members, and coworkers, Happy Passover.  Let us hope the world finds peace, especially at this joyous season.


[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure when we will offer the music of the Jan Hammer Group, but you can bet we will one day to be sure.

[iv] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[vii] Bing has returned to reporting update numbers (well, mostly).  Here is the link: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[viii] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

[ix] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: (1) covid-19 u.s. and global statistics – Bing

[x] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[xi] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[xii] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xiii] We knew it was bogus back then and mentioned it in numerous posts.  First, why would the Russians do something such as this when if they had said the Iranians did it, it would have been much more believable.  We would not have issues with the Russians today if the Democrats did not use them for their punching bag.  Russia did this, Russia did that, wah, wah, wah.  We don’t believe our two countries should be at odds with one another because all it’s doing is to push the Russians deeper into the Chi-Com camp.  No, we should try to have a friendly relationship with Moscow.  How about it, Joe?

  17. 1917 Monday: Vladimir Ilyich Lenin arrived back from exile in Petrograd to join the Russian Revolution.   Kaiser Wilhelm II played his ‘secret weapon’ well: loaded aboard a closed train, Lenin and the Kaiser struck a deal- ‘we will send you back to Russia and when you take power, you take Russia out of the war.’  And so, it occurred.  However, when the communists took power, every nation in Europe shunned them because they did not want the evil disease of Marxism spreading to their countries but for now, all was well.

  23. 1941 Wednesday: The Yugoslav government (or what’s left of it) is attempting to negotiate an end to the Axis invasion of their country.  The Yugoslav military was not prepared for the Blitzkrieg that fell atop them like a load of bricks.  Anger Adolf Hitler and you will pay the price.

  58. 2011 Saturday: In Egypt, the court orders the former ruling National Democratic Party of Hosni Mubarak be dissolved.  Next, in Cuba, President Raul Castro proposes ‘term limits’ for ‘elected officials.’  Come on, Raul, Cuba is a communist s**thole and things such as ‘term limits’ and ‘elections’ are complete shams, meant only for foreign consumption.
  59. 2012 Monday: Following political reforms in Myanmar, Australia relaxes sanctions on the country, including by-elections earlier this month where opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi’s party won more than a dozen seats.  Elsewhere, Roxy Music’s[viii] original bassist, Graham Simpson, died on this date in London, United Kingdom.  Meanwhile, “God Save the Queen,” the Sex Pistols big tune from 35 years ago which the BBC banned finally can be heard in the United Kingdom in time for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

  63. 2016 Saturday: The Afghan government continues repelling Taliban attacks on the city of Kunduz.  Afghan and U.S. troops are keeping the jihadists at bay.  Half a world away, Syria and ISIS continue doing battle with one another and many parts of the city of Aleppo are smoldering ruins.  For every rocket attack, the Syrian government answers with airstrikes.  Civilians are fleeing in all directions.
  64. 2017 Sunday: Dictatorial thug leader of Turkey- Recep Tayyip Erdogan- ‘wins’ approval for an 18-article constitutional reform which thrusts the nation ever deeper into totalitarianism.  Elsewhere, due to the stupidity of Hamas and Fatah officials, the Gaza Strip’s ONLY power generating plants shuts down.  It has run out of fuel, its bills have gone unpaid, many among the leadership have skimmed off fortunes from money given to the Palestinian Authority and all they can do is to blame it on the ‘blockade.’  Look, dimwits, the answer is simple: stop building tunnels into Israel and do something for your people.  Period. 
  65. 2018 Monday: Following a recent chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government on the town of Douma, critics are bellowing that the Russians have ‘covered up evidence at the crime scene’ to which, the Russians say, ‘not likely’ and that as soon as it’s safe there (as soon as they finish cleaning it up), they will allow a team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to visit the area. 
  66. 2019 Tuesday: While many of us love the Seattle Seahawks, there is no reason as to WHY the team made quarterback Russell Wilson the highest-paid QB in the game, giving him both a $65 million signing bonus as well as a four-year extension worth $140 million.  The rest of the team is struggling so it appears Seattle is going down the path the Baltimore Ravens went with QB Joe Flacco.  Where is Joe NOW?   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump vetoes a bill demanding an end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.
  67. 2020 Thursday: Jobless claims due to COVID-19, the Chinese gift to the world that won’t stop giving, come in at 5.2 million for the week.  Total claims since social distancing and economic shutdown hit 22 million Americans out of work.  This is all because of China.  We must make them pay when we come to the end of the pandemic, which we hope is soon.  Word continues to appear that demonstrate that the Wuhan Virus Crisis did indeed come out of a Chinese laboratory in the city of Wuhan where it just so happens the Chinese conduct biowarfare studies.  Although they continue lying that the virus came from somewhere else, who can believe a single word a communist regime says?  Communists always lie, it’s in their DNA which is why no one should take them at their word.  COVID-19 Statistics: currently, there are 2,151,199 confirmed cases around the planet what with 1 confirmed cases around the planet what with 143,725 confirmed fatalities as well as 541,501 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 672,931 confirmed cases with 34,386 confirmed deaths and 54,594 confirmed recoveries.  The Chinese claim 84,593 confirmed cases, 3,342 confirmed deaths and 79,112 confirmed recoveries.  Boy do the communists lie.

  69. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 139,274,615 confirmed cases, +933,695, 2,989,590  confirmed deaths, +14,760, and 79,359,280 confirmed recoveries, +573,576.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,764,754 confirmed cases, UP 82,708 from yesterday’s reporting, 571,464 confirmed deaths, UP 933, and 119,018,094 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.[ix]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  70. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 244,572 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  71. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,712,566 confirmed cases, 60,837 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,155,744 confirmed cases, 34,330 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,337 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 383,967 confirmed cases, 5,412 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Arkansas, the home of future Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders: they have 332,949 confirmed cases, 5,686 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[x] 
  72. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,902 confirmed cases, 6,315 confirmed deaths, and 827,934 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Nepal, a country the Chinese are trying to undermine and make a de facto piece of the RED EMPIRE: 282,890 cases of the virus, 3,070 confirmed deaths and 274,812 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  73. 2021 Friday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,200.67, UP 164.68 points (+0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,052.34, UP 13.58 points (+0.97%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,185.47, UP 15.05 points (+0.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.07 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,777.30 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.16%) while the price of SILVER is $26.04 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.25%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,206.00 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $4.16 per pound, -0.00 (-0.08%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,777.50 per troy oz, +36.77 (+1.34%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,600.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.78%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000016.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Gibraltar pounds, one greenback equals 0.72860 and in Guatemalan Quetzal, a buck equals 7.72.[xv]   
  74. 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 $3.953 per gallon, $2.833 in Florida, $3.748 in Hawaii, and $3.352 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.080.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,178,345,152,208 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.
  75. 2021 Friday F: GUNS, GUNS, GUNS– You know folks, last night, 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole went into the FedEx facility at the Indianapolis, Indiana, airport, shot and killed 8 people, wounded several others, and then took his own life.  His mother reportedly warned the cops last year that her son might try to go out via suicide by cop.  This is a tragedy for all involved but here’s the deal: since Joe Biden has become president, there have been more mass shootings than there were under the last two years of President Donald J. Trump what with 30 dead so far this month alone.  This tells us that the rhetoric used by feeble old Joe Biden and his Democratic Party henchmen-and-women is driving the nuts to go berserk, shooting, and killing and maiming innocent people.  It is clear many fear they are going to lose their weapons and since they have unfinished business, are going to act on it NOW.  Stop with all the HATE SPEECH, Joe, enough is enough.  (Note- the cops in Indianapolis say they are searching for a motive.  What the hell!  Mr. Hole wanted to die, and he had some people with whom he wanted to settle scores.  Period).
  76. 2021 Friday G: BULLS**T POLL OF THE DAY– a recent PEW Poll says that Joe Biden’s approval rating stands at 59-percent.  Please.  This nothing but crap.  Speaking of Joe Biden, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says, that ‘Joe Biden is not up to the task at hand, especially the Chi-Coms who are our biggest threat and someone we should have nuked back in 1951.  In other Joe Biden news, he is holding his first meeting with another foreign leader, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan, at the White House today.  We wonder who is speaking for him.   Anyhow, the two leaders agree that the Taiwan Strait must remain stable.
  77. 2021 Friday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– common sense people are beginning to ask WTF we shut our country down over the Chi-Com virus when hundreds of thousands of people continue swamping across our border and disappearing into the interior of the country?  If the federal government could give a flying f**k about how many of the invaders have COVID-19, then why should anyone else?  Speaking of the border crisis, President George W. Bush- an ‘esteemed former president’ if one ever existed (yeah, right) says he supports immigration reform but not amnesty.  George, we feel the same way about you as we do Jimmy Carter.  When either one of you dimwits says anything, we quickly move onto something else.   
  78. 2021 Friday I: JOE BIDEN REFUGEE NEWS–  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the dumb b***h who slurs her words bad enough already but with a mask strapped over her pie hole makes it even more difficult to understand what the hell she is saying chided Joe Biden on not taking in enough refugees.  Oh, please, Nance, please Joe, bring in some more winners like Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, like the Syrian shooter in Boulder, Colorado, like the Boston bombers, please, bring in some more of those America-hating POS, we need more of them ASAP.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden moves to placate our European allies and says he will remove Trump-era caps on the number of refugees our country accepts in.  That truly sucks.
  79. 2021 Friday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Someone said Chelsea “The Genius” Clinton may run for Congress.  Good God Almighty, please say it ain’t so.  She is as stupid as is the Fly, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she with her Boston College economics degree.   Then again, she would fit right in with all the dimwitted Democrats serving in Congress already like Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, and Congresswoman Sheila “Putty Puss” Jackson Lee, DS-TX 18th congressional district, and Congressman ‘Mr.’ James “Influence” Clyburn, DS-SC 6th congressional district, she would fit right in.   
  80. 2021 Friday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– Glenn Beck said today on his radio show that in the cities where Black Lives Matter protesters ran amok raping, pillaging, looting, robbing, and beating, there were a combined total of more than 6,000 additional homicides.  Coincidence?  We think not.  They are not a peace-loving group; they are fascist black-and-brown-shirted thugs in need of eradication.  Elsewhere, in other political news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has challenged the highly cerebral Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district to a debate on the Green New Deal.  Now, we would pay handsomely to get ringside seats to see this duel to the death, MTG doing battle with the Fly on pay-per-view-TV.  Sign us up now.
  81. 2021 Friday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– In other political news, we learn that the director for the new Black Panther sequel is NOT going to follow his WOKE liberal comrades and boycott Georgia.  Good.  ‘WOKE’ will go away when people pay it NO attention.  None of us are going to NFL, NBA, or MLB games ever again nor are we going to buy Coca-Cola® products, Nike® sportswear, or any of the other crap that is boycotting everything.  We are not going to see movies, we do not have to see how stupid we are, how great the Chi-Coms and perverts are, enough is enough.   Elsewhere, the great state of Florida passes an anti-riot bill.  About time someone does.  Look, government’s number one job is this: protecting the lives of its citizens and their property.  Plain, simple, and easy for the stupid to understand.  Once you raise an arm to throw a Molotov cocktail, you get shot.  Once you throw bricks and don’t stop when you are told to stop, you get shot.  Once you start looting, you are eligible to get shot.  This is the way it always was and should be again.
  82. 2021 Friday M: 2020 ELECTION NEWS– reports continue to arise that the number one person behind the changed election laws in numerous states and in the subsequent theft of the election from President Donald J. Trump is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s number one hired thug, attorney Mark Elias.  A partner at Perkins Cole, he is the head of their ‘political law’ department and this man- if we are to believe what we are now learning- is the number one operative behind the stolen election and the subsequent cover-ups of the theft.  In all states where election information has already been trashed, those states should have to hold another election at their expense.
  83. 2021 Friday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– We learn that Hunter Biden’s NEW book in which he talks about smoking crack, banging teenaged whores, and doing all sorts of other evil and disgusting stuff has sold a whopping 10,638 books in its first week.  According to Bill O’Reilly, this is ‘crap’ seeing as how Bill’s new book, “Killing the Mob” has already sold 60,000 copies and is not even on the shelves of bookstores yet.  In other news, people are lamenting the 13-year-old boy who was shot dead in Chicago the other night by a cop.  Adam Toledo, aka Lil Homicide and Baby Diablo was gangbanging with his buds at 2:30 in the morning, running around with a loaded gun, shot at cops, then ran away and dumped the gun just as the cops rolled up and got shot.  YOU don’t want to get shot, don’t be banging, don’t be shooting at cops, and don’t be running around in the middle of the night.  Period.   We shed no tears.  Next, Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, says yes indeed, he is going to resign.  Wow.
  84. 2021 Friday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– U.S. Interior Secretary Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the job, is dumping Trump era rules concerning the fossil fuel industry’s rights on public lands.  Apparently, oil and gas companies will no longer be able to drill for vital national resources leaving us dependent upon OPEC, Russia, and other Third World producers of energy.  This makes no sense.  Next, conservative House Republicans are forming the ‘America First Caucus,’  a group to continue the legacy of President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Minneapolis public schools are hurriedly switching over to online learning as the city (and the country) braces for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, the mother of slain EMT Breonna Taylor- Tamika Palmer- slams both State Representative Attica Scott, D-Louisville, and BLM, labeling both of them as ‘frauds’ in the aftermath of the shooting death of her daughter.  According to Ms. Palmer, she watched the TWO raise money off the death of Breonna without doing a damned thing to help her family.  Wow.  We understand.
  85. 2021 Friday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1651: 17, 27, 28, 50, 55, and Mega 25.  Out of 105,680 winning tickets, the highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $496 apiece.
  86. 2022 Saturday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.

  55. 2004 Monday: Terry Nichols went on trial for his life in the infamous Oklahoma City bombing.  Already serving a life sentence for his conviction on federal charges, a jury found him guilty of 161 state murder charges, but once again cheated death because the jury couldn’t agree on his sentence.
  56. 2005 Tuesday: Rod Price, the electric slide guitarist of the band Foghat[vi], died on this date in Wilton, New Hampshire, due to a heart attack suffered while falling down the stairs at his home.  He was 57 years-old.   This man made the slide guitar into a virtuoso instrument giving Foghat a sound that made them monsters of the world throughout much of the 1970s and into the early 1980s.  IF you haven’t heard this band yet, you must seek them out ASAP.
  57. 2006 Wednesday: The ETA—an armed Basque separatist group—declares a permanent ceasefire.  Elsewhere, U.S. Army personnel continue to be punished for mistreating Muslim POWs at the Abu Ghraib prison.  Sgt. Michael Smith, a military dog handler, had the misfortune of being photographed frightening jihadist prisoners with unmuzzled canines.  He received a six-month sentence.  Gee whiz.
  58. 2007 Thursday: As the Iraq War continues to drone on and on and on, the Out-of-Iraq Caucus in the U.S. Congress finds themselves worked into a corner.  They planned to vote against a $124 billion military funding bill that would send more money to both the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on the promise the country would find a way with which to remove the U.S. from these endless meatgrinder wars.  Good luck with that.
  59. 2008 Saturday: In Rome, an amazing incident occurs when Pope Benedict XVI baptizes Madgi Allam, the most well-known Muslim cleric in all of Italy.  Allam has decided to turn his back on Islam and become a Roman Catholic.  Will riots break out around the world?  Events such as this usually cause such mayhem.
  60. 2009 Sunday: After a prolonged period of unrest, Mt. Redoubt, an Alaskan volcano commences erupting.  Elsewhere, in the United States, newbie President Barack Hussein Obama is seeking a strategy with which to extradite the United States from the continuous war in Afghanistan.  Good luck with that, sir.  President Obama tells the American people that the Bush-Cheney policies have made the world less-safe.  We concur, the world is a much more dangerous place due to all these regime-change wars neocons love to launch.
  61. 2010 Monday: In a big to-do for the Obama administration, President Obama will be signing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA or more well-known ACA- into law.  The Republicans are preparing to file a bill with which to repeal it if it does become law, but this BS from the GOP would continue until well after Donald J. Trump became president in early 2017.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: Governor Dennis Daugaard, Republican -South Dakota, signs an abortion bill that requires women to wait 72 hours before undergoing the procedure and to receive counseling.  Meanwhile, Hall of Famer NFL player Lawrence Taylor pleads guilty to misdemeanor sexual assault and receives a sentence of six years-probation.

  64. 2013 Friday: The British Food Standards Agency reports a discovery in Lancashire of 100kg of horsemeat imported from Hungary labelled as beef.  Elsewhere, information is beginning to come out regarding the secret drone war the Obama administration has been running covertly.  Four Americans have been slain by CIA drone strikes in Yemen and Pakistan and the American public is growing concerned.  What is the 44th president up to?  Didn’t he win a Nobel Peace Prize almost upon the day of his election?  Yikes.  Take it back, Nobel, take it back.
  65. 2014 Saturday: At Oso, Washington, 30 people die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, at Lake Albert, Uganda, a boat capsize kills at least 251 people.  Elsewhere, with Vladimir Putin formerly signing into law the act that allows Russia to rip the Crimea away from the Ukraine, the world is going berserk.  We shall see what we shall see.
  66. 2015 Sunday: Having discovered the remains of King Richard III of England, 1483-85, in the city of Leicester, the crown gives him a royal funeral procession to his place of burial at the Leicester Cathedral.  Elsewhere, it appears that civil war is looming in Yemen.  The United Nations reports the possibility which causes the United States to close a key base and begin pulling personnel out of the violent hellhole.  Meanwhile, one of the creators of the havoc in Yemen- Iran- is demanding an immediate end to ALL sanctions imposed upon their country if the U.S. and other nations trying to engineer a ‘deal’ with Tehran want to see it happen.
  67. 2016 Tuesday:  Jihadists in Brussels, Belgium have caused loads of trouble again as they attacked a subway station and an airport killing at least 31 people and injuring another 200 plus people.  The time is coming when permitting ‘armies’ of military age Muslim males from the Middle East, North Africa, Central Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa must stop or Europe will be no more.  The authorities are out seeking this riffraff.   Elsewhere, Senator Ted Cruz says it’s ‘time we begin patrolling Muslim neighborhoods in the U.S. to prevent them from becoming radicalized.’  This of course raises the ire of liberals across the country.  God, forbid we do something to protect our country.  
  68. 2017 Wednesday: Original drummer for the East Coast rock band, Boston[vii]—Sib Hashian—drops dead while performing on a cruise ship in Nassau, Bahamas; he was age 67.  Elsewhere, the House of Representatives is preparing to vote on the future of the Affordable Care Act, one of the failed Obama era messes that Donald Trump promised to end on Day 1.  Across the nation, liberals are out running riot in the streets, screaming don’t take away our healthcare.  Wah, wah, wah, everyone receiving Obamacare is receiving it thanks to government subsidies which are bankrupting the government.  Obamacare MUST GO.  NOW.
  69. 2018 Thursday: According to new scientific research, the Great Floating Island of Garbage haunting the waters between California and Hawaii contains more than 1.8 trillion pieces of garbage and thanks to China, Russia, and the Third World continues expanding by the minute.  Meanwhile, in eastern China at Yancheng, a chemical Xiangshui plant explodes with such magnitude that it registers as an earthquake, killing at least 64 and at least- according to Chinese reporting 28 missing.  Wow.
  70. 2019 Friday: Rumors continue to abound that special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, nicknamed the “Boy Scout,” will soon release his more than two-plus years witch hunt into all-things Russian collusion and President Donald J. Trump.  People who either helped initiate the potential coup or who have knowledge of the farce begin distancing themselves from the impending release of the final report.   Millions of Americans hope that when the report clears the president, that the people who launched the coup- Andrew McCabe, Rod J. Rosenstein, James Comey, James Clapper, John Brennan, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Loretta Lynch, Sally Yates, Peter Strzok and his paramour Lisa Page, and numerous others- including Barack Hussein Obama- will face justice. 
  71. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 continues crisscrossing the world with the death toll now sitting at 15,000 with loads more to follow.  Worldwide, there are at least 340,000 confirmed cases of the bat virus with several nations such as Italy feeling the brunt of the growing pandemic.  The Gaza Strip, Afghanistan, and Syria report their first cases while German Chancellor Angela Merkel goes into self-imposed quarantine following her personal physician testing positive for this evil crap.  The U.S. is trying to prevent foreign flights coming in so as to stop the spread of the virus but in some areas, particularly Democrat-controlled areas, they aren’t taking it seriously as they should.   In Japan, the Summer Olympics are up in the air what with some nations now saying they aren’t going to send athletes.
  72. 2021 Monday:  BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE I– Despite a blackout on what is occurring on the U.S. southern border with Mexico, brave souls are releasing shocking of photos of illegal aliens and illegal alien brats crammed into sardine can-like holding facilities, sleeping on cement floors with foil blankets for protection.  Where is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez aka the Baby Evita, where is Rashida Tlaib, where is Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and all the rest of the blubbering leftists who care so much about illegal alien kids?  Nowhere.  Let the world see them for what they are- glib hypocritical POS.   Former Acting U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf says it’s NOT an ‘open border but a LAWLESS border now’ thanks to blundering Joe Biden’s horrible America-last immigration policies.
  73. 2021 Monday A: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE II– President Donald J. Trump says his administration handed Joe Biden a secure border.  Look at it now.   As the crisis continues growing exponentially worse by the hour, the 45th president blasted the enfeebled 46th president’s border policies as inhuman, cruel, and according to us, EVIL.   Speaking of the 46th disaster, he says he will go to the border when ‘he’s good and ready.’  Uh, okay.  The problem is, you WON’T know what you are looking at, Joe, you’ll think you’re at the zoo… Elsewhere, we learn that U.S. Customs and Border Patrol interactions with family units on the southern border are up by 188 percent and illegal alien brats by 96-percent.  Build the wall and deport them all.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Monday B: POLITICAL NEWS– Congressman Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district received an endorsement from President Donald J. Trump as he runs to unseat RINO Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, an extremely corrupt individual who colluded with Governor Brian Kemp and political hack Stacey Abrams to throw the 2020 Presidential Election to stumbling, bumbling old Joe Biden in the Peach State.  Even more embarrassing for Mr. Raffensperger is the fact that HIS county- Fulton County- banned him from serving as a delegate in any upcoming elections.  Ouch.  Congressman Hice thanks President Trump saying his endorsement has led to an overwhelming response in support.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump says that Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘is hanging by a thread in the upcoming battle to end the Senate filibuster rule.’  (Note- we also learn that dark money is funding efforts to end the filibuster rule).
  75. 2021 Monday C: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Pro-Death Joe Biden is facing a growing backlash from the Catholic (and other religious affiliations) over his rabid support of abortion at all stages of gestation and even after birth.  IF Pope Francis were not a liberal-socialist, some say, ‘communist,’ he would excommunicate Biden, his family, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and loads of other Pro-Death Democrats and liberals.  Pope Francis- do your job, excommunicate these Catholic-in-Name-only, aka CINO, abortion-loving losers.  NOW.  Next, Joe Biden (well, the voice in his ear) says he is going to move to bolster Obamacare prior to its upcoming 11th anniversary.  What a disaster.  Biden (the voice) also says that his administration must prepare to get $3 trillion in additional spending on the road NOW.
  76. 2021 Monday D: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS– Russia regrets the United States lack of support for public talks between Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin.  Elsewhere, for the first time this year, Russian warplanes carried out airstrikes on rebel positions in northwestern Syria.  Blow those bastards to hell, boys!  Next, the U.S. sanctions two Chinese officials for their roles in repressing Uighur Muslims.   Speaking of the Chinese, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘we cannot reward communist China by allowing them to hold the 2022 Winter Games in Beijing.’  Numerous nations around the world are joining the movement to either boycott the games or to see them moved elsewhere. 
  77. 2021 Monday E: MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRES AND OTHER CRIME NEWS– A Chinese American group condemns, we repeat, condemns CRITICAL RACE THEORY as being the new form of Maoism.  How soon do we see Red Guards going door to door in the streets?  Instead of lamenting the dead in the Atlanta killings, the Democrats are using the dead to stir their evil-smelling pot of fecal matter to continue their race-baiting ways as well as to steal guns from the American people.  Speaking of the Massage Parlor Massacres, the feds say there is “NO EVIDENCE that the shooter’s crimes were racially motivated thus no federal hate crimes charges can be filed against the sex addict shooter.’  This of course drives all liberals insane.  Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO, says that the politization of the crimes is a ‘calculation’ on the part of the Democrats.   Speaking of crime, the judge in the Derek Chauvin trial has seated the 14th and final juror in the upcoming trial.   
  78. 2021 Monday F: SCOTUS NEWS– The John Roberts U.S. Supreme Court will weigh reinstating the Boston Marathon Bomber’s death sentence.  Folks- just execute this POS, he does not need to sit on death row for the next 40 years.  Next, the Supreme Court won’t take up the case about Facebook tracking its users.  Speaking of Facebook, they claim to have removed 1.3 billion false accounts between October to December of last year.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– The Los Angeles teachers’ union agrees to reopen schools sometime in April.  (Note- teachers have NO clue as to what is heading their way, the discipline problems are going to be off the charts.  We expect to see teachers and administrators assaulted, beaten, raped, and murdered because the young people with socialization skills are going to amped up more than anyone can comprehend.  It’s going to be ugly).  Elsewhere, Miami Beach, Florida, has had to slap on a curfew from 8:00 p.m. to sometime the next morning because of fights, havoc, and people crowding together.   Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, and Elon Musk are arguing over wealth and how best to spend it.  Mr. Musk, whatever Bernie says, do the EXACT opposite.  Finally, newbie Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, is tying gun control together with voting rights.  (Note- Georgia- vote this POS out of office next year).   
  80. 2021 Monday H: AICPENDBLOG.COM ENDORSEMENT– We endorse former Assistant Administrator of the Small Business Administration Sery Kim to fill the open House seat in Texas’ 6th congressional district.  The Special General Election will occur on May 1, 2021.

  83. 2021 Monday J: 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: 3,643,252 confirmed cases, 57,679 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,834 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 357,443 confirmed cases, 5,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- U.S. Virgin Islands: currently, they have 2,767 confirmed cases, 25 confirmed deaths, and 2,653 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,672 confirmed cases, 6,102 confirmed deaths, and 807,341 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Sweden, home of pissed-off Greta Thunberg: 744,272 cases of the virus, 13,262 confirmed deaths but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

  86. 2021 Monday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– George W. Bush political advisor Karl Rove is planning on holding a fund-raiser for politically dead man-walking Congressman Adam Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district.  That’s Karl Rove for you.  The guy is probably thinking he’s going to trot out Jeb Bush for another go in 2024.  One thing we can guarantee you, the era of voting for the lesser of two evils– meaning voting for a RINO instead of a Democrat has ended. If we’re going to go socialist, then we’re going to go socialist so what difference does it make if it’s next year or in three years or whatever?  NO MORE RINOs.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s national security adviser says it wasn’t a mistake to call Vladimir Putin a ‘killer.’  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the battle of mail-in ballots is raging in the Florida statehouse.  We don’t want mail-in ballots.   Next, the push to make the federal district of Washington, D.C., is beginning in the U.S. Senate.  Washington, D.C. was NEVER meant to be a state.   Finally, accusers of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo claim the Lov Gov is interfering in the harassment probe into his scandalous activities and actions.  The man is a groper.
  87. 2021 Monday N: CRIME NEWS– In Boulder, Colorado, a lone gunman carrying a rifle shot and killed 10 people- including a law enforcement office- at a King Soopers Grocery Store.  The shooting began around 2:30 P.M. and within minutes, a line of emergency vehicles and first responders ringed the store.  Law enforcement then went in and subdued the scumbag.  He’s in custody.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice has announced that it is considering hitting the Oath Keepers with SEDITION charges for their part in the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots.  The question is, WILL the Justice Department file similar charges against Antifa and Black Lives Matter as both groups infiltrated Trump supporters and engineered one of the largest FALSE FLAG operations in modern U.S. history.   
  88. 2021 Monday O: In other crazy news, RINO Bill Kristol, one of the all-time great phonies is supporting making Washington, D.C., a state while also advocating the invasion of Cuba and making that one a state, too.  This worthless phony has never seen a Third World War for which he didn’t advocate, and NO one should waste time listening to this dumb ass.  The time for jingoism ended when at the end of the Mexican-American War, the U.S. didn’t absorb the land between our southern border all the way down to Columbia just as after the Spanish-American War, we didn’t keep Cuba, too.  Next thing you know, Bill Kristol is going to want to make Afghanistan a U.S. commonwealth or at least a territory.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Stick around…

  86. 2021 Monday: Day 48 of the Biden Regime- stick around and discover what sort of antics the Chi-Coms and their imposed stooges in the Biden administration are up to today.  First, West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin- after allowing the ‘Biden administration’ to intimidate him into voting for the $1.9 trillion PORKULUS bill- now vows that he will vote to block Joe Biden’s equally humongous climate and infrastructure bill.  Sure, Joe, sure.   Still, Senator Joe Manchin says that the ‘GOP must be involved in fashioning infrastructure bill or that HE will BLOCK it.’  Regarding Joe Biden’s ‘climate bill,’ Steve Milloy, founder of JunkScience.com and former member of Donald Trump’s energy transition team says, ‘ALL one needs to know about Democrats and their climate goals is to look at the disaster that befell Texas in the recent storm.’  Regarding Democrats and their bills, House Dems plan to vote on two repressive 2nd Amendment anti-gun bills on Wednesday. 
  87. 2021 Monday A: U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says for some inexplicable reason that ‘the U.S. must include BOTH communist China and Iran in engineering the Afghan peace process’ successful conclusion.’  WHY?  The Trump administration had it well underway so now, we must bring in the Iranians and the Chi-Coms?  WTF?  Still, we knew the Biden administration would do stupid s**t such as this.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we learn today that they are continuing to exploit U.S. cybersecurity weaknesses which is why we must stop the scumbags.
  88. 2021 Monday B: The NYPD continues going about the ‘business of the people,’ cracking down on ILLEGAL PARTIES.  Whoa.  Speaking of New York, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., joins the chorus of state and national lawmakers demanding an investigation into crumbling Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo over the far too many allegations of sexual harassment lodged against him PLUS the fact that between 15,000-20,000 deaths of seniors and disabled folks in the Empire State’s nursing homes.  The man sent Chi-Vi-infected patients into nursing homes where the state’s vulnerable died and then- as they were dying- had them transported back to state hospitals so they would die there, driving up hospital death rates but not the nursing homes.’  Wow.  Still, an ever-defiant Governor Cuomo says, “I WILL NOT RESIGN!  UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!”[ix]  
  89. 2021 Monday C: Speaking of Cuomo killing the state’s nursing home residents, former three-term Governor George Pataki, R-NY, says what Cuomo did to nursing home inmates is ‘beyond the pale’ and ‘highly criminal.’   Heck, even the New York Senate’s majority leader- Andrea Stewart-Cousins- says the guy must go and that person is a Democrat.  NOTE- we are now seeing Harvey Weinstein-like behavior as Gov. Cuomo is trying to ‘buy’ his way to ‘freedom:’ today, he floated the idea of raising taxes on wealthy New Yorkers even though his state has received $12.58 billion in federal COVID-19 money.  This is what libs do when they are in trouble- promise to jack wealthy people in their state, promise to fight for abortion at all stages of gestation and even after birth, and to crush the NRA.  Let us see what he does next.
  90. 2021 Monday D: Police in Pennsylvania report the arrest of a man accused of more than 1,000 auto burglaries since February 2020.  Wow.  Pennsylvania law enforcement is finally doing its job.  In other oddball news, a Harvard professor suggests that ‘comfort women’ used by Japanese troops during World War II were all willing prostitutes.  And this on the 110th International Women’s Day![x]  Meanwhile, NASA Mars scientists encourage girls to ‘reach for the stars.’  Elsewhere, the effort to recall Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom has 1.9 million approved signatures.  This POS is on the way out.    Finally, it’s confirmed that French multi-billionaire ($7.15 billion to be precise) Olivier Dassault lost his life with two others in a helicopter crash yesterday.
  91. 2021 Monday E: In COVID-19 news- numerous states take the big step towards life after the Chi-Vi by making plans to eliminate masks and to reopen their economies and even their schools.   Next, COVID-19 travel insurance could become a valuable tool in the reopening of the world’s countries to hospitality and travel industries.  Next, a new book says world diplomats were warned about the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s numerous problems TWO years prior to the Chi-Coms allowing the Xi Jinping Bat Virus to engulf the world.  Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci now says that ‘fully vaccinated people can mingle with one another sans masks.’  Thank you, Dr. Fauci.  Then, the AMAZING Dr. Fauci throws icy water on that by warning the country, ‘the U.S. can experience a new mass outbreak of the ‘VID by reopening too fast and easing mask mandates.’  Thanks again, Dr. Fauci.   However, the CDC is allowing illegal alien holding pens along the border with Mexico to fill beyond capacity, NOT worrying about the Chi-Vi there.  Likewise, towns in Texas used as dumping sites for illegal aliens, report that one-quarter of the illegals test positive for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  92. 2021 Monday F: Pro-Trumper Senator Lindsey Graham is trying to harness the Donald J. Trump magic.   Next, Senator Roy Blunt, R-MO, says he won’t be seeking another term thus opening the seat up for another young gun like Senator Josh Hawley.   Next, Vice President Mike Pence plans on giving a speech- his first since leaving the White House- sometime next month.  Meanwhile, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, blasts Joe Biden’s nominee for deputy secretary of state Windy Sherman over her being a big proponent of abortion ‘rights’ at all moments of gestation and after the child’s birth.  What a horrible human being.  In another move, Joe Biden appoints Erin Pelton as a special adviser for him, a person who lobbied for Qatar.  Wow.
  93. 2021 Monday G: In other Joe Biden news, he is directing the U.S. Department of Education to review Title IX changes made by the Trump administration.   Next, the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear tells him to announce that he is going to form a Gender Policy Council so he can continue f**king up the country’s young people.  Next, Joe Biden’s secretary of the U.S. Treasury Janet Yellen says the passage of the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief bill is going to ‘restore the U.S. economy by 2022.’[xi]  Uh, okay, not when you borrow money from the Chi-Coms.  Not when you allow the Chi-Coms to buy up vital U.S. industries such as meat-packing and food preparation as well as allowing them to buy distressed U.S. commercial and residential properties via straw companies thus making them our de facto landlords. 
  94. 2021 Monday H: What else is happening today- the 80th Annual Daytona Beach Bike Week kicks off today.  Next, NBA star Kobe Bryant’s rookie card sells for a cool $1.8 million.  Next, the billionaire ex-wife of Amazon business mogul Jeff Bezos- Mackenzie Scott- marries a high school teacher.  Good for him.  Moving on, famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz asks the extremely important question of the Cancel Culture- ‘Why stop with Dr. Seuss?’  Speaking of the Cancel Culture, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL, says the real goal behind the “CC” is to drive people into SELF-CENSORSHIP- something free Americans will NEVER submit to, NEVER. Meanwhile, SCOTUS refuses to hear the final Trump era election fraud case, this one a violation of election law in Wisconsin.  Elsewhere, Jason Snead of the Honest Elections Project looks to reestablish faith in the U.S. Elections system.   
  95. 2021 Monday I: In Minnesota, an appeals court orders the return of Third-Degree Murder charges in the trial of former Minneapolis P.D. Officer Derek Chauvin.  State Attorney General Keith Ellison, Democrat, thought he could pull a fast one and go for a second-degree charge of murder.  He can’t and he won’t get it.  Speaking of the trial, it’s already off to a horrible start as jury selections freezes.  Meanwhile, George Floyd’s brother says he hopes for ‘justice, for a conviction’ of Officer Chauvin.  Again, we shall see.[xii] 
  96. 2021 Monday J: The GOP pushes the Biden administration to get an imprisoned U.S. Marine in Russia released and sent home.  Good luck with that, the Biden administration is as impotent as impotence can be.  In other fascinating news, Iran threatens to RAZE Tel Aviv if Israel should attack the ‘peace-loving Islamic Republic of Iran.’  We say, NUKE the hell out of Iran- give them something to suck on in the same way that President Ronald Reagan ordered the sinking of most of their pathetic navy back in the early 1980s.
  97. 2021 Monday K: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 117,060,462 confirmed cases, +459,454, 2,597,318, confirmed deaths, +7,680, and 66,132,420 confirmed recoveries, +211,728.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,293,090 confirmed cases, up 34,149 from yesterday’s reporting, 530,614 confirmed deaths, UP 1,087, and 112,744,650 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 202,137 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.   
  98. 2021 Monday 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: 3,599,900 confirmed cases, 54,271 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 445 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 347,422 confirmed cases, 5,108 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Oregon: currently, they have 157,481 confirmed cases, 2,304 confirmed deaths, BUT NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 805,116 confirmed cases, 5,917 confirmed deaths, and 758,541 confirmed recoveries. 
  99. 2021 Monday M: Somehow, the Democrats have been able to drive the markets back up on this Friday- it’s artificial, the collapse is still coming.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,802.44, UP 306.14 points (+0.97%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,609.16, DOWN 310.99 points (-2.41%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,821.35, DOWN 20.59 points (-0.54%).  The price of GOLD is $1,682.30 per troy oz., +4.30 (+0.26%) while the price of SILVER is $25.26 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,144.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.72%) while the price of COPPER is $4.09 per pound, +0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,328.50 per troy oz, +6.50 (+0.28%) Same as yesterday.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.93 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.03%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.49.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 28.28.
  100. 2021 Monday N: Greg Kelly reports on Newsmax that Pepe Le Pew, the “Joe Biden of cartoon characters” because of all his hands-on the female character is now CANCELED, too. Meanwhile, the White House praises the courage of Megan Markle and the individual formerly known as “Prince Harry” for sobbing their story to Oprah Winfrey.  Folks, who the f**k cares?  Hopefully, Harry will recognize his mistake sooner while there is still time to repair the self-inflicted damage than later when the royal family will never welcome him back in.  Megan sobbed that the royals worried about the color of baby Archie.  Uh, again, who cares?  Oprah don’t act so flipping shocked, you has-been.  In other news, the family of Ashli Babbitt, slain at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, by a Capitol Hill police officer for still unknown reasons is considering filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the department.   Next, Joe Biden grants temporary immigration status to Venezuelans who have fled their country for the U.S.  Finally, JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO GIVE A PRIME TIME ADDRESS THIS THURSDAY!  Glory, glory hallelujah, glory,  glory hallelujah, glory, glory hallelujah, the world is going to hear the mummy speak!  
  101. 2021 Monday O: On this spectacular 110th International Day of Women (except in crap-hole nations such as Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan), Burger King UK tweets out the following statement: “women belong in the kitchen.”  Ooops.  Must have been a joke. Speaking of jokes, the U.S. State Department has zipped its lips and won’t accuse the Chi-Coms of committing mass genocide against the Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang Province.  The State Department is also tiptoeing around the fact that the Chi-Coms are not honoring their commitment to a half-century of incorporation of Hong Kong- former British crown colony- by seeking to corrupt their voting system so that it resembles the authoritarian system on the mainland.  FREE Hong Kong!  FREE Taiwan!  FREE Macao!  FREE Tibet!  FREE Mainland China!  NO MORE COMMUNISM! 
  102. 2021 Monday P: General Russell Honoré concludes his report into the Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the good (left-wing) general announces that the Capitol Police Department must have greater authority in times of crisis.  Uh, okay.  Will the increased power allow us to demilitarize our nation’s capital?  Meanwhile, Georgia state lawmakers present a bill that will terminate NO-EXCUSE absentee voting.  The Democrats won’t like this.  Still, if state government won’t enforce the state’s voting laws, what difference does it make?   
  103. 2021 Monday Q: Two of Joe Biden’s picks for top posts in the U.S. Department of Justice promise to rain hell down upon the evildoers behind Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-instigated-and-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Lisa Monaco- nominated to be U.S. Deputy Attorney General and Vanita Gupta- nominated to be Associate Attorney General promise to go after and crush the people threatening our democracy.  Both proclaim to keep the U.S. Department of Justice nonpartisan while assumed U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland says, ‘Donald Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud are bogus.’  Meanwhile, Joe Biden isn’t budging from his desire to keep the ‘filibuster in place’ even as the rest of his party seeks to overturn it and to ram through all their crazy leftist bull crap ideas.  In other news, liberals are rubbing their hands in glee having heard that an investigation into ‘citizen Donald Trump’ is underway to investigate his claims the 2020 Presidential Election were rigged.  The Democrats can’t let go.
  104. 2022 Tuesday: Day 412 of the Biden Administration- stick around and discover what sort of antics the Chi-Coms and their imposed stooges in the Biden administration are up to today.  It’s going to be good!

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The only American in the Band- Levon Helm- struck out on his own for a brief period while the Band was in somewhat of a hiatus.  Thus, he formed his own group which subsequently released the album, “Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars” on April 15, 1977.  Of the 10 songs on the disc, most of them were covers which is cool because we have a wide range of musical influences here.  The band was more of an orchestra what with Levon Helm (lead and backing vocals/drums), the great Paul Butterfield (harmonicas), Steve “The Colonel” Cropper and Fred Carter Jr. (guitars), Booker T. Jones (keyboards and percussion), the “Night Tripper” aka Mac Rebennack (keyboards and gris-gris), Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass), a horn sections, strings, a conductor, and guest appearances by fellow Band mates Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson.  We love the album, particularly the Chuck Berry cover of “Havana Moon,” which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.  At Amazon, you can pick it up for less than $25 so what the heck?  Seek it out now…

TODAY IN HISTORY, TUESDAY MARCH 08, 2022, BLOG POST #4,476

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…


Tuesday, March 08, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

[ii] We hope to share the music of the Eagles, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Glenn Fray, and others, including Poco, sometime in the next decade.  Please remain with us.

[iii] See previous.

[iv] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time however, we overlooked presenting the music of the group’s individual members- Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Welch, Lindsay Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.  We hope to do that at some point in the near future.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

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

[vi] We first began promoting the music of Trapeze beginning on Monday, 15-October-2018 through Saturday, 27-October-2018.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed band out and consider adding it to your collection.

[vii] We began promoting the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Jimi Hendrix on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Please check the albums out, you will enjoy them.

[viii] 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.

[ix] New York State Attorney General announced the names of the team investigating the handsy governor today.  Godspeed folks.

[x] Why are we celebrating International Women’s Day?  It’s a flipping joke when liberals want trannys to play in girls’ sports.  There is no reason to celebrate a day such as this until the Western World regains its senses.  We believe- if you want to celebrate trannys- a third category of scholastic sports should be created- tranny sports.  Let’s do that.  Then, we can celebrate International Women’s Day.

[xi] Speaking of Treasury Secretary Yellen, reports suggest she is AWOL from office.  Left-wing news channels and online sites remain mum on her whereabouts or what she might be up to while center and center-right news sites are raising questions about the aged old gal.  We would like to know ourselves. 

[xii] In a similar note- all charges pending for Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend- the target of the police raid that killed Ms. Taylor- have been dropped.   Likewise, in other connected news, the mother of Eric Garner warns that the cops will assassinate the character of the victim, meaning that the Minneapolis P.D. will point out the fact that Floyd was a thug and that he was doped up and overdosing the day of his death.  Just saying.  Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax says the prosecution will be unable to obtain a conviction of 2nd Degree Homicide because of the fact they cannot prove that Officer Chauvin was the cause of Floyd’s death.  The cause of Floyd’s death was DRUGS, primarily fentanyl but other drugs as well. 

GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES, GOD BLESS UKRAINE, AND OTHER COUNTRIES THREATENED BY AUTHORITARIAN REGIMES…

Trump announces he is going to go to Alaska so he can campaign against RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski.  We would love to see former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin primary Senator Murkowski.[x]   Speaking of President Trump, he lambastes various RINO Republican entities for misusing his brand in fund-raising efforts, especially when they continue supporting RINOs who voted for his impeachment.  He demands they cease and desist.  That means the Republican House and Senate Committees and we believe the Republican National Committee, too.  Until the GOP comes to grips with its RINO problems, no one is going to send another dime to any GOP PAC or Super Pac.  F**k them.
  78. 2021 Sunday C: In the U.S. Senate, the Republicans tried to block COVID-19 relief checks going to illegal aliens and other foreign citizens- as well as to people doing time in the hoosegow- but the Democrats blocked the GOP.   With the absence of Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan, Republican, away on family business, the Dems passed the COVID-19 ‘Relief Bill’ by a vote of 50-49.  We learn that at least 17 million Americans are ineligible to receive benefits while river-swimming illegals and the incarcerated will receive checks.  F**k them.   RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says Joe Biden should concentrate on reopening schools rather than sending checks to people who don’t deserve them.
  79. 2021 Sunday D: In New York, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s woes continue to worsen what with two more women coming out and pointing the fingers of doom at this POS who thinks his fecal matter doesn’t stink.  The Albany Times says NOT only should “Killer Cuomo” go but the enablers who helped him get away with incalculable #MeToo crimes.[xi]   Speaking of Cuomo, the New York legislature has stripped the bum of his emergency rights.  NO more acting like a dictator.  We hope to see his brother, Chris the Pris, face his own #MeToo troubles what with his exceptionally close relationship with fellow CNN anchor Don Lemon, both of whom are reputed gropers.   Speaking of the Empire State, Donald Trump is planning his first visit to the Big Apple since leaving office.
  80. 2021 Sunday E:  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says the ‘Democratic agenda is the reshaping of America.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, a massive global hack breaches Microsoft business accounts.   Speaking of hacks, pressure applied by President Donald J. Trump and the U.S. has caused Huawei to lose loads of money outside the People’s Republic of China.  In other news, a Michigan state judge reinstates voting fraud cases with the state’s borders following a forensic probe of the corrupt Dominion Voting Systems equipment used in the state’s 2020 Presidential Election.  Ample evidence exists of the machines flipping votes for Donald Trump to Methuselah Biden.   Finally, the Tennessee legislature is proposing a bill that will allow the state to crack down on violent highway protesters, people who blocks roads and highways as well as stiffening the rights of citizens to defend their lives and property. 
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Governor Greg Abbot and the state of Texas is launching Operation Lone Star with which to fund, employ National Guard troops, and law enforcement officers in land, sea, and air operations to halt the tidal wave of illegal aliens trying to force their way into the country.  All power to Texas!  Let’s revive Operation Wetback and begin rounding up and removing illegal aliens everywhere we find them.  Meanwhile, Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz blasts the Biden administration for holding NO press conferences and notes that it appears as though we are moving towards a “Harris administration.”  Amen.  Speaking of the Republican Party, it’s speaking out against the cancelation of news media outlets on the right by the left and Cancel Culture.
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 116,600,908 confirmed cases, +431,789, 2,589,638, confirmed deaths, +7,563, and 65,920,692 confirmed recoveries, +225,672.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,258,941 confirmed cases, up 65,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 529,527 confirmed deaths, UP 1,610, and 112,291,045 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 201,050 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.   Note- that stupid bi**h Jen “Circle Back” Psaki won’t credit President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: 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: 3,596,488 confirmed cases, 54,124 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 444 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 347,301 confirmed cases, 5,107 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Idaho: currently, they have 173,011 confirmed cases, 1,882 confirmed deaths, and 96,017 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 799,727 confirmed cases, 5,856 confirmed deaths, and 753,081 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Com lab-engineered biowarfare, anti-Trump Xi Jinping Bat Virus, AstraZeneca says that it’s planning to deliver roughly 50 million doses of the Chi-Vi Vax to Americans within the next two months.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Switzerland votes to ban face coverings in public.  Meanwhile, authorities report that the Russians have launched a disinformation campaign on the efficacy and safety of U.S. Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  F**k the Russians.  Elsewhere, a Uighur Muslim human rights group demands the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics be stripped from the Chi-Com regional power over their persecution of Uighurs and other minorities in the western portion of that backward country.  Finally, the U.S. and South Korea are preparing to hold limited military exercises beginning tomorrow and which will run for nine days.  North Korea promises to closely monitor them.  How about we END the Korean War?  What a novel idea!
  85. 2021 Sunday J: Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, blasts the Biden PORKULUS Relief Bill as nothing more than a ‘liberal wish list.’  Meanwhile, Representative Mike Gallagher, R-WI, is demanding that Joe Biden reconsider shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline.  It’s time to open that sucker back up so Americans can enjoy cheap energy prices.  In other news, economist Stephen Moore says a good jobs report can get the U.S. economy going up like a rocket ship.  Next, Trump era student loan debt czar Mark A. Brown hands his resignation letter over to the Biden administration.    Finally, Newsmax asks an important question: is “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell planning to exit the world’s greatest deliberative body?  Probably going to relocate to the PRC so he can help his father-in-law run his shipping company.
  86. 2022 Monday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band released its first ‘best of’ compilation, “The Best of the Band,” on July 15, 1976.  The group was having inner turmoil related to being together for far too long, having massive success and then a decline all within the span of about five years.  Thus, the record company said ‘it’s time to release a compilation’ so we can bring in some additional revenue so here we are.  Still, you have a glorious introduction to one of the most prolific groups of all time- yes, we said it, because the music and the attitude of this band influenced everyone from Eric Clapton to Dave Mason to loads of other similar-sounding groups- which is why if you have yet to get in on the ground floor, well, this is the perfect way in which you can do it.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended albums.  You can thank us later.

TODAY IN HISTORY, MONDAY MARCH 07, 2022, BLOG POST #4,474

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

Sunday, March 07, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

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…


Monday, March 07, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the J. Geils’ Band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  We hope you remain attentive for the day when we do because they are one of the all-time great American rock bands.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[v] We are not sure when we will promote the music of Oakland’s Tower of Power, but you can be sure that we will do so when we begin promoting the music of funk-rock, horn-powered bands. 

[vi] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[vii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[viii] 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.

[ix] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[x] One of the reasons (among many) President Trump wants to end the service of Senator Murkowski is her support for Debra Haaland to become the next secretary of the Department of the Interior, a person who will cripple the 49th state’s energy and mineral production.  It’s time for Murkowski to go.

[xi] The amazing thing is NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio smells chum in the water and is planning on launching a primary campaign to strip “Killer Cuomo” of the governorship and winning it for himself.  That is pretty bad when a loser like Di Blasio is in better shape than a boner like Cuomo.  Going to be fun to watch.

62. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 03, 2022

1991 Sunday: In a scene captured on amateur video, Los Angeles police officers beat the living shit out of motorist Rodney King for being high and for having led them on a lengthy pursuit.

  84. 2021 Wednesday J: 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: 3,577,879 confirmed cases, 52,789 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii has not updated their stats in more than a week now.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 344,916 confirmed cases, 5,056 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Mississippi: currently, they have 295,675 confirmed cases, 6,743 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 785,218 confirmed cases, 5,790 confirmed deaths, and 738,226 confirmed recoveries.  Texas Senator Ted Cruz says it’s the right thing to do ending the Coronavirus lockdowns and mask restrictions in Texas.  (Hey, Ted- we expect to see the Democrats DRIVE UP the numbers of COVID-19 cases within the Lone Star State so they can continue the shutdown). 
  85. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,270.09, DOWN 121.43 points (-0.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,997.75, DOWN 361.04 points (-2.70%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,819.72, DOWN 50.57 points (-1.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,709.30 per troy oz., -6.50 (-0.38%) while the price of SILVER is $26.18 per troy ounce, -0.21 (-0.78%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,168.20 per troy oz, -13.60 (-1.15%) while the price of COPPER is $4.10 per pound, -0.04 (-0.91%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,354.30 per troy oz, -14.20 (-0.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.06 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.36%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.94.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.71.
  86. 2021 Wednesday L: After the House votes on H.R. 1 this evening, the so-called, “For the People Act” which will forever allow Democrats to steal elections from the White House to the collector of roadkill, they are going to flee town claiming FEAR over this bogus, ginned-up, Democratic-Socialist-manufactured looming assault on the U.S. Capitol tomorrow.   The FBI Director Chris Wray said recent intel suggests evil white militia, supremacists, and other human fecal matter are going to assault the Capitol TOMORROW.  With fences and walls up all over the place and with National Guard troops still capable of doing their duty after many received tainted food and became ill, what do Democrats fear?  An airborne drop atop the Capitol like it’s a “Red Dawn” movie?  WTF? 
  87. 2021 Wednesday M: FOR ALL THOSE WHO BELIEVED JOE BIDEN WOULD NOT MIRE US IN ANOTHER MIDDLE EASTERN WAR, well, you are STUPID.  The U.S. is now warning ‘terrorists’ in the Middle East that there will be retaliatory airstrikes on ‘terrorist’ assets in the region.  Joe Biden promised NO new wars and in less than 50 days, the military lobbyists, the Military-Industrial Complex, and fat cat politicians heavily invested in military industries, war is coming to a place near YOU.  Thank you, you stupid f**k Democrats!
  88. 2021 Wednesday N: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3539 with a $25 million jackpot on the line: 11, 18, 22, 28, 37, and Mega 14.  Out of 102,638 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $18,852 apiece.  One ticket was sold at a 7/11 in Desert Hot Springs, CA 92240 while the second one was sold at a Chevron in Irvine, CA 92620.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #825 with a $123 million on the line: 21, 40, 44, 50, 55, and Powerball 16.   
  89. 2021 Wednesday O: The Democrats passed their sweeping ‘Voting Rights Act’ bulls**t bill, one that will give 16-year-olds the right to vote.  Folks, people shouldn’t be voting until they are in their thirties now, they don’t mature until well into their thirties and yet, Democrats want everyone to vote.  The House Republicans stood against, but we will say this: the Democrats genuinely believe they are making themselves untouchable, but you know, the Fates have a way of coming back around and biting disbelievers on their asses.  It’s going to be fun watching the Dems toppled by their own stupidity.  Do you think YOUNG people want fossils like Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, James Clyburn, Chuck Schumer, and other senile old, mummified idiots calling the shots?  You better think again…
  90. 2022 Thursday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The fourth album by the Band- “Cahoots”- came out on September 15, 1971, and would see the band beginning to slide a bit from the pinnacle they rapidly had climbed over the preceding years.  The album contained one bona fide hit- “Life is a Carnival”- but would not chart as well as the preceding three.  The band features the same quintet of 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).  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music because we love it and know that you will, too, especially with all the add-ons one gets as a bonus to the original tracks.  Enjoy.
