  85. 2021 Tuesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.04 (2) AstraZeneca $57.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $162.81 (4) BioNTech $276.52 (5) Moderna $384.21.  The push is on for everyone to get their third jab (if you’ve gotten the first two which most everyone we know has not) which means more taxpayer money will go to these companies to produce more vaccines for distribution around the world.  The BIG PHARMA companies will of course DONATE back to elected Democrats and RINOs.  Follow the money…
  86. 2021 Tuesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $86.84 (2) General Dynamics: $197.10 (3) Boeing: $218.41 (4) Lockheed Martin: $352.15 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $358.30.  Government has a big defense spending bill which means money will be sent to these companies who will then donate it back to elected Democrats.  Money-go-round, baby, the classic money-go-round.
  87. 2021 Tuesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $34.01 (2) DuPont: $69.05 (3) Honeywell: $214.97 (4) 3M: $180.05 (5) Teijen: $1,606.00.  Personal protective equipment companies are rolling in the bucks.  Follow the money.
  88. 2021 Tuesday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $107.36 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.00 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $20.50.  Beyond Meat shot way up.  Follow the money- especially as the Chi-Coms continue buying up U.S. farmland and food industries.  Is that not an issue of National Security?
  89. 2021 Tuesday O: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Amazon $3,315.96 (2) Costco Wholesale Corp: $447.35 (3) Wal-Mart $140.50 (4) Home Depot: $333.80 (5) Lowe’s: $205.43.  The government determines what is and what is NOT an essential business?  Do you think that government apparatchiks at all levels are NOT investing in these, and other companies like them?
  90. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News I– Left-wing protesters now target Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, over his refusal to support the regime’s $3.5 trillion spending bill.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate votes against the spending bill which causes liberals such as U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen to prophesy ‘DOOM is coming via a government shutdown.’  She is demanding the Senate act by October 8, 2021, to stop a catastrophic federal government shutdown.  Oh, woe, people!  Senator Cynthia Lummis, R-WY, lit up Secretary Yellen over the new order demanding banks report ALL TRANSACTIONS over $600 to the Internal Revenue Service.  WTF!  Speaking of the spending bill, Dems are trying to insert into it a tax on single-use plastics just as they are amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.    
  91. 2021 Tuesday Q:  Political News II– Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues swearing his spending bill is going to cost ZERO dollars.  He also is applying pressure to Democrat leaders of House and Senate to pass his bogus bills that will jack up taxes to an oppressive level not seen since Jimmy Carter.  Anyone missing President Donald J. Trump yet?  We sure the heck are missing the 45th president.  Elsewhere, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, had a town hall meeting at the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California, hosted by Newsmax’ Rob Schmitt.  Great town hall.
  92. 2021 Tuesday R:  Political News III– Today, the men responsible for the Afghan crisis- sans Joe Biden- testified before the Senate Armed Forces Committee- U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley, and commander of the United States Central Command General Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. sat and answered questions.  Rep. Mike Turner, R-OH 10th congressional district, told Newsmax that General Milley was ‘incredibly disingenuous in his testimony.’  When Senator Tom Cotton asked the agitated Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman as to whether he was going to resign or continue taking a paycheck, General Milley angrily said, “NO.  I’m not gonna resign.”  Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, said that after hearing the testimony of the three men that ‘Joe Biden must resign.’  Finally, Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says that Generals Milley and McKenzie’s testimony exposed the ‘lies of Joe Biden.’
  93. 2021 Tuesday S: Federal and State Court News– A shocking new report suggests that at least 131 federal judges sat on cases directly tied to their very own personal fiscal interests.  Imagine if these were Trump-appointed judges but we know they are not, they are liberal placements.  Meanwhile, a court in Texas ordered the immediate release of 220 illegal aliens into the hinterlands of the Lone Star State.  Why?  Elsewhere, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, is demanding more information from both the U.S. Department of Justice and the Biden regime in the case of the now-free Huawei CFO.
  94. 2021 Tuesday T: Miscellaneous News I– Native American groups are demanding that Joe Biden do something immediately to protect the Bears Ears National Monument in southeastern Utah.  President Barack Hussein Obama created it via presidential proclamation on December 28, 2016.  When President Donald J. Trump was in the White House, he slashed the size of the monument by 85-percent and the Native Americans want it restored before those cuts take effect.
  95. 2021 Tuesday U: Business News– Ford Motor Co. is going to invest $11.4 billion to build three plants inside the United States with which to build electric batteries for use in its EV automobiles.  Meanwhile, in the era of mentally deficient Joe Biden, the price of an average home in the United States has shot up by a shocking 19.7-percent.  The American Dream is being torn from the fingers of young Americans.
  96. 2021 Tuesday V: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1698 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line: 18, 30, 43, 68, 69, and Mega 22.  Stay tuned for the results on the winners…
  97. 2021 Tuesday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Prosecutors around the country are dismissing cases due to an ever-increasing backlog of cases due to the Chi-Vi.  Meanwhile, accused Georgia sex spa shooter, self-confessed whoremonger Robert Aaron Long, the punk who carried out the massage parlor massacres last year, pleaded “NOT GUILTY” to four murders.
  98. 2022 Wednesday:  As you know, each of the contributors to this blog write on a six-month cycle more or less so when we pick up where we left half-a-year earlier, we are ALWAYS surprised at what’s going on around the country and across the world.  Everyone knows that Joe Biden is dumber than a box full of taro root, but the senility is even worse than anticipated.  Falling down the stairs, falling off his bike, walking around shaking the hands of ghosts, not knowing where to enter or exit a stage, it’s all very unsettling and downright frightening at times.  Then, we have his trusty Number 2, a person NO one seems to like, who is even dumber than he is.  She goes around in circles babbling about communities being in the community of communities, blah, blah, blah, this is what you get when a subpar chick sleeps her way up the ladder of politicians’ totem poles.  Granted, she was able to disguise her lack of smarts when she was a sitting U.S. senator whereas now, whenever we have the misfortune of seeing her on TV is extremely nauseating.  The Number 3- the Botox-drenched hag who runs the U.S. House of Representatives can hardly offer a coherent sentence at a time, sloshing her choppers around her mouth while she sucks on a lemon.  This is extremely unsettling.  However, if anyone becomes too critical about the collapse of the U.S. government, the Joestapo might come around, roust one out of bed, and then possibly disappear you in the middle of the night.  What has befallen our country, you might ask?  Believe in karma?  This is what happens when one STEALS AN ELECTION SO BLATANTLY THE ENTIRE WORLD KNOWS IT!  Oh, Lord, I had better prepare for the Joestapo to show up at six o’clock in the morning.  LOL.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next studio album released by Cheap Trick remains among our favorites: “Woke Up with a Monster,” which came out on March 22, 1994.  While not a commercial success, it is an album one most definitely needs to own.  The band features the quartet of Rick Nielsen, Robin Zander, Bun E. Carlos, and Tom Petersson and rocks from the opening moments to the final chords in the fade out.  It begins with the superb (1) “My Gang” moves to (2) “Woke Up With a Monster” (absolutely amazing), (3) “You’re All I Wanna Do,” (4) “Never Run Out of Love” (5) “Didn’t Know I Had It” (6) “Ride the Pony” (7) “Girlfriends” (8) “Let Her Go” (9) “Tell Me Everything” (10) “Cry Baby” and (11) “Love Me for a Minute.”  Don’t pay attention to what reviewers at Amazon.com or at other sites say, we guarantee that every fan of both the band and of hard rock is going to enjoy this album.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 44

270. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2022:

Many Hawaiian voters fell for the line that Trump is NO GOOD.  Well, after suffering beneath the tyrant currently residing in the White House, GOP voter registrations are shooting up as high as Haleakala.  We plan to restore our state to the Red column in November.

  8. 1821 Saturday: As the Spanish withdraw, revolutionary troops begin the occupation of Mexico City.  The Spanish were unable to maintain enough troops in Mexico to keep it in its colonial orbit.  However, due to the intrinsic inabilities of the Mexican people, revolutions and civil wars will become an almost permanent thing.  It would appear they were better off under the control of Madrid.

  57. 2017 Wednesday: President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans unveiled the first major revamp of the nation’s tax code in a generation, a plan that included deep tax cuts for corporations, simplified tax brackets and a near doubling of the standard deduction.  So far, the tax cuts have proven successful and millions of Americans around the country have benefitted greatly from them.  Meanwhile, the scientific journal “Nature” publishes an article on the giant tree-dwelling rat of the Solomon Islands, the ‘Vika,’ an animal capable of cracking open coconuts.  Folks, everything grows bigger in the Tropics.
  58. 2018 Thursday: In the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, the accuser of Brett Kavanaugh- Dr. Christine Blasey Ford- sat before the committee members and laid out her allegations against Judge Kavanaugh with little emotion or credibility although the Democrats circled all around her proclaiming her to be a fantastic witness.  Then, when Judge Kavanaugh sat before them, he lambasted the Democrats on the committee for making it all about politics and for destroying his family.  In the end, the Judge appeared to be far more credible and produced evidence identifying his whereabouts on any given day.  The Democrats are causing problems once again and carried their attacks on the Judge to the next day during a committee vote to move the nomination to the full Senate.  Elsewhere, famed vocalist with the Jefferson Airplane[vi] and Jefferson Starship- Marty Balin- died on this date in Tampa Bay, Florida.  Marty was just 76 and had suffered a heart attack.  Following improper care after open heart surgery, he passed for good.

  61. 2020 Sunday A: The United Nations announces that the Houthi rebels and the Saudi-led coalition of anti-Iranian scumbags will conduct a prisoner swap of 1,000 or more prisoners.   There is hope that peace may be achieved and soon.  We suspect that as more Arab and Muslim nations begin recognizing the right of Israel to exist, the Iranian hegemony will begin to dwindle.  Meanwhile, Armenia and Azerbaijan engage in some border scuffles resulting in the loss of military vehicles and aircraft.    Finally, at the White House, President Donald J. Trump addresses reporters and asks the assembled hostile throng as to ‘WHY no one wants to know about the corruption of “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his son, Hunter, when it comes to harvesting hundreds of millions of dollars from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and other leftist-Marxist global actors.’  News Media: HOW COME you don’t ask these questions?  Why did Hunter Biden receive $3.5 million from the wife of Moscow, Russia’s mayor?  For what?  His boudoir services- wow.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 392,941 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 11,137 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xiii]       
  70. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.397 per gallon, $3.062 in Florida, $4.059 in Hawaii, and $3.855 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Michigan: $3.239.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Greece: $7.555 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,811,541,882,791 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after France, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Norway with $88 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  71. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News- As word of more and more crimes being committed by Afghan ‘refugees’ rushed into the country and rapidly dispersed around it by the Biden regime arise, Rep. Tom Tiffany, R-WI 7th congressional district, says ‘criminal activity among unvetted Afghans is predictable.’  Speaking of this criminal activity, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that ‘an unsecured Fort Bliss is unable to stop Afghan refugees and HAITIAN INVADERS from melting away into the local community and across the country.’  In other Afghan-related news, former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell says that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin must answer questions on WHY Bagram air base was abandoned and handed over to the Taliban.  The ‘Two Stooges’ will testify before the House tomorrow and then the Senate on Wednesday.  In other Afghan aftermath news, approximately 100 Americans and green card holders are set to leave the crumbling country.  (Note- Afghan barbers are NO longer permitted to cut men’s beards as that is not in keeping with their beloved ‘Prophet’).
  72. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Over the weekend, an unapologetic U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told left-wing journalists that ‘as many as 17,000 HAITIAN INVADERS have been seeded across the United States.’  Meanwhile, as we learn another invasion force of approximately 20,000-30,000 HAITIAN INVADERS are marching up from Central America to the U.S.-Mexico border, President Donald J. Trump took a direct verbal jab into the craggy face of senile Joe Biden by saying the “U.S. is the laughingstock of the globe.’  By the way- today is Day No. 186 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be monitoring the southern border and Day No. 93 since the one day she showed up to do her job.
  73. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Hospitals around the country are facing staffing shortages as ill-advised Chi-Vi vaccine mandates are willingly imposed across the country and nurses, technicians, and doctors refuse to take them.  Thus, we have a push in far too many towns, cities, and even states to bring in OUTSIDE healthcare workers to make up the shortages.  Of course, these noncitizens- like the ones pouring across the border- won’t have to provide proof of vaccination.  The Biden regime is destroying America’s healthcare system.
  74. 2021 Monday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.57 (2) AstraZeneca $58.72 (3) Johnson & Johnson $163.17 (4) BioNTech $307.09 (5) Moderna $408.84

  78. 2021 Monday M: President Donald J. Trump News– A new Mackinac straw poll shows that among the GOP, President Donald J. Trump is a 2-to-1 favorite among likely voters.  Still, if you partake of online news exclusively, you will see that it is almost mirror opposite which is why you should receive your news- and commentary- from the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day.  You know where we’re coming from, and you can make up your mind for yourselves.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that HAITIAN INVADERS ‘are being released into the U.S. with NO vetting or checking.’  True, absolutely true.  Speaking of Trump, he had more than 20,000 people at his rally in Georgia on Saturday. How many fervent supporters would a slobbering Joe Biden attract?   Turd that he is, he couldn’t even attract flies.
  79. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– Dictator Joe Biden ordered Iran either to grant access to U.N. inspectors of its workshops or face disciplinary action in the IAEA- the International Atomic Energy Agency- of the United Nations.  Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reports that ‘Joe Biden lied about the cost of his ‘build back better’ agenda.’  No surprise to us- the man is a liar.  Still, his good buddy, Barack Hussein Obama, says he ‘supports taxing the rich to pay for the Biden agenda’ (because it’s the OBAMA agenda, folks).  Meanwhile, after mumbling a few words to the press, the senile groper in charge of the country sat down in a chair, rolled up a sleeve, and received a jab in his arm of what he claimed to be the Xi Jinping Bat Flu ‘booster shot.’  (Note- wouldn’t it be crazy if old Joe had an adverse reaction to this stuff and uh, went to the other side?  It’s not like he has any use any more other than to drum up sympathy so the Dems can really crack down on the American people.  Of course, we hope NOTHING happens to the poor old coot).
  80. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Rasmussen poll says that Joe Biden’s numbers continue tanking what with 42-percent approving of his botched actions while 56-percent vociferously oppose his fascist actions.  In our learned view, Joe’s numbers are most likely 10-15 points LOWER than reported which means Americans of all political backgrounds and persuasions oppose this loser’s actions.  Add to that the fact that stumbling Joe Biden acknowledged that his agenda ‘may not be passed this week.’  Thank God, the American people are resisting.
  81. 2021 Monday P: U.S. House of Representatives News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has set September 30 as the day of the vote on the trillion dollar bills the Biden regime and “Mumbles” are trying to ramrod through both houses of Congress and onto senile Joe Biden’s desk.  Next, the House passed the Defense bill by a final vote of 316-113 (134 Republicans voting in favor) which includes forcing all American young women to register for the draft as their male counterparts do).   The spending bill is having problems as is the raising of the debt ceiling.
  82. 2021 Monday Q: U.S. Senate News I– The Senate Republicans are in lockstep against voting for the Democrats’ massive spending package, one that will cost the U.S. 5.3 million jobs and add another $3.5 trillion in overall debt to the American people.  As Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, tried to pass a temporary spending bill through, by a vote of 48-50, the bill went down to smoldering defeat.  “Cryin’ Chuck” was in a state of shock believing he had the necessary votes to pass this garbage bill through to fruition.
  83. 2021 Monday R: Popular Culture News– The Rolling Stones[xvii] have opened their North American tour and are paying homage to the late, great Charlie Watts, their drummer.  In other news, R & B singer R. Kelly found himself convicted in his sex trafficking case.  Will he go to the slammer, or will he be given a slap on the wrist?  Next, singer Rihanna has upset her fellow leftists by being seen wearing a t-shirt with the slogan, THINK WHILE IT’S STILL LEGAL” emblazoned across the front.  Good for you.
  84. 2021 Monday S: Sports News I– In tonight’s Monday Night Football matchup, the Eagles went to Dallas to play the Cowboys.  The Cowboys (2-1-0) clobbered the hapless Eagles (1-2-0) by a final score of 41-21.  Whoa.
  85. 2021 Monday T: Moron News I– After a big show last week of two ‘View’ hosts being yanked off the set prior to the arrival of “Kooky Kamala” Harris due to ‘positive COVID-19 tests,’ the two skanks returned to the show today.  Apparently, the tests were wrong as most of them seem to be.  It would be awesome if all of the skanks were struck dumb and unable to talk, especially Joy Behar and that stupid dingbat Sunny Hostin.  Talk about a moron!  (Note to Sunny- you don’t need to pancake the makeup on your face- look your age).  In other moron news, ultra-far-leftist Rep. Karen Bass, DS-CA 37th congressional district, announces she is ‘all in running for mayor of Los Angeles.’  Wow.
  86. 2021 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #890 with a jackpot of $545 million up for grabs: 21, 22, 39, 44, 60, and Power 12.  In California, out of 138,374 winning tickets in the tarnished Golden State, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $37,215 apiece.
  87. 2022 Tuesday: Observation of the Day There is a growing sentiment among Hawaii citizens that President Donald J. Trump is better for the nation than the head of cauliflower currently inhabiting the White House- fraudulently, I would say.  When Trump was president, many Aloha State voters fell victim to the negative spin the Democrats twirled before our eyes and ears about how bad he was (although I, your host, never believed that).  Now, under the control of the corrupt politician and his cronies running our nation, many voters in the state no longer believe it and that is why Democrats are crossing the Great Divide and becoming Republicans.  Friends, we are working hard to save our state and should you care to help us, make sure you to donate to the Hawaii GOP.  We would love to see President Donald J. Trump come to our beautiful island chain and hold a rally the likes of which has never been seen.  He could hold it Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on a Saturday night after the big swap meet.  It would be so ono.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On February 19, 1994, Cheap Trick released their next live album, “Budokan II.”  This album features more of the tracks that were left off the original album.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

Joe Biden does not operate from a position of altruism; no, every time we hear of billions going to Ukraine, billions going to mass monkeypox vaccine distribution, or billions going to fund his ‘cancer moonshot,’ one must know that billions skimmed off the top from those billions are going into the pockets of the BIG GUY and members of his corrupt, mafia-like family. Ye, gods, folks.

  56. 2016 Sunday: The United Russia Party- Vladimir Putin’s political party- wins big in the parliamentary elections winning 54-percent of all seats and installing his long-time crony, Dmitri Medvedev as prime minister.  What else is new?

  59. 2019 Wednesday:  The White House does something good for the country when it says that states like California cannot enact their own emissions standards on automobiles which brings down the cost of the cars sold in the state.

  60. 2020 Friday: To the horror of the Chi-Coms and their vociferous protests, the Trump administration agrees to sell SEVEN big weapons systems including drones and seaborne smart mines to Taiwan.

Moving on, President Trump says that another $13 billion in aid to American farmers will go out next week. Next, the reward for the POS attempted assassin in Los Angeles, California, this past Sunday, in which a punk strode up to a police car in Compton and shot two L.A. Sheriff’s Department deputies at close range has grown to $675,000. Catch the shooter and whack him.
  61. 2020 Friday A: Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s highly likely we will see a vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu Chinese Virus Crisis sometime in October or November. Speaking of the Wuhan Waltz, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is pulling back from saying he would impose a national mask mandate. Poor old Joe, he has no clue what he is saying on any given day. When is someone going to charge Dr. Jill Biden with elder abuse? Speaking of “Gropin’ Joe,” Howie Kurtz on Fox News Channel noted that last night’s CNN ‘Town Hall’ with the former VP and Anderson Cooper was not even softball, that it was akin to “T-Ball,” noting that Trump received all manner of hateful questions in his earlier in the week while everyone treated Senile Old Joe with kid gloves. What a laugh. True what Howie said, however.
  62. 2020 Friday B: The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled that mail-in ballots are valid up to three days after Election Day in November. Meanwhile, Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi doubles down on her demand for a $2 trillion Chinese Virus relief bill. President Donald J. Trump says he is in favor of the larger bill and advises the GOP to consider it as he wants to get COVID-19 Bat Flu emergency aid to the American people NOW. The president also signed a $11.6 billion aid package for the people of Puerto Rico, beset by corruption, mismanagement, and criminality on the part of their government.

[xii]    Let us look at one other Idaho: $3.772.  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- San Marino: $6.966 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,776,931,097,401 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Belgium, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 177 for the world-famous ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 84 since her sole visit to the El Paso Sector for a photo op.  Anyhow, here are the numbers as presented by OAN today regarding the illegal alien crisis.  First, here is the cost for just this day- Saturday, September 18, 2021– $579,642,432.  Imagine all that money put to beneficial use such as helping homeless vets, the drug addicted, even American urban outdoorsmen.  Imagine what that could do for AMERICANS instead of the Third World’s detritus.  Wow.  Next, here is the amount of taxpayer money wasted on caring for the illegal alien invaders for the calendar year 2021: $285,511,221,248.  Third, here is the appalling TRUE number of illegals who have flowed across the southern border this year: 2,926,261.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegal aliens living in the country, a number we believe is FAR TOO LOW: 36,926,260. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  74. 2021 Saturday G: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– After demanding that ALL employees submit to Joe Biden’s illegal mandate of getting the Chi-Com vaccine or else, 125 employees at Indiana University walk off the job.  Good for you.  When this winds its way through the courts, everyone who has lost their job will be paid for every single hour they have been off the job.   We have seen this before as people wrongly terminated in the professional foodservice industry or who are forced off the job- wrongly- can get some stunning payouts that can, on occasion, bankrupt a business.  Joe Biden- careful with those mandates because the American people love FREEDOM.

  76. 2022 Sunday: F**king Joe Biden might not be as senile as many believe.  Earlier this week, the man who showered with his young daughter now wants to send BILLIONS of nonexistent dollars into a ‘cancer moonshot’ much like President John Fitzgerald Kennedy launched the program to put Americans on the moon.  Every single time we hear that slobbering, minor-attracted individual announces plans to send billions of dollars into the Ukraine, into monkeypox mass vaccinations, into forcing every American to join a labor union, or into fighting cancer, the question is this: HOW BIG is the percentage going into the pockets of the BIG GUY?  Joe Biden is not doing any of this because of altruism; no, he is doing it because he knows how to skim money off the top and to then divert it into the coffers of his corrupt family.  The man is a criminal, a possible felon, not just for his creepy fondling of young girls and his sniffing of women’s hair and his groping of their behinds, but because he has become a master criminal that dwarfs the criminality of anyone else in elective office, even that of Mitch McConnell.  Let us not forget that “Cocaine Mitch’s” father-in-law was sending South American cocaine to Europe via his shipping company’s fleet of vessels which is why the Turtle has the moniker that he does.  We must neuter this man’s ‘presidency’ just as we must neuter the Democrats’ hopes of toppling our constitution-based representational republic which is NOT a democracy.  Friends, let me know what you think this week, I thank you for joining me each day and will see you again in six months.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0956 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Red Rose.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick was a disappointment to many in that the band was evolving and had changed producers. “All Shook Up” came out on October 24, 1980 and spawned no big radio hits which was unexpected. Longtime producer Tom Werman was out, and Beatles producer George Martin was in.  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion) although following the release, bassist Petersson would leave the group due to overwork.  The band was on the road around the clock- doing at least 300 shows per year and recording albums in between.  This album would not receive the same praise or achieve the same sales as its predecessor, “Dream Police.”  Still, as completists, we must own every shred of music produced by a favorite band.  Seek it out and enjoy, we think you will be glad you did.

Rush Limbaugh foretold of what the Dems have been working hard at accomplishing since his death: nullifying elections in the United States.

  52. 1992 Tuesday: The ex-Nazi, criminal financier George Soros earned his epithet “The Man Who Broke the Bank of England” when his Quantum Fund began dumping large amounts of pound sterling which crashed its value, thus driving the UK into a depression and driving the pound out of Enterprise Risk Management.  Why the global financial community has not put a hit out on this POS is beyond us.

  62. 2015 Tuesday: As the European Union Muslim ‘refugee’ and ‘migrant’ crisis continues causing problems for the nations of Eastern Europe, Hungary says, “ENOUGH!” and seals its border with Serbia with rows and rows of concertina razor wire.  This strands loads of Muslims in a country with a negative history towards followers of the Prophet Mohammad.

  66. 2019 Sunday: Famed member of the East Coast rock band, the Cars[v]– Ric Ocasek (guitars/vocals/keyboards 1976-1988 / 2010-present)- is found dead in his home in New York City on this date; he was 75.  Meanwhile, Hong Kong freedom protesters outside the British Embassy find themselves under fire from the authorities with tear gas and water canyons.  Protests there are growing in momentum as the people continue protesting the Chi-Coms.
  67. 2020 Tuesday: Hurricane Sally is expected to become a Cat 1 storm when it makes landfall later today along the coastlines of Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi.  Residents are bracing for the worst and FEMA is on site.  Meanwhile, at the White House, the foreign ministers of Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates are signing the historic peace agreement hammered out by the Trump administration between those Arab nations and Israel.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is also there signing the documents along with President Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, the Palestinians are crying and screaming that they are ‘being stabbed in the back.  Oh, boohoo.  STFU you worthless scumbags- you’ve had your chances, more than any other country ever, to make peace.  When ALL Arab nations sign onto this deal, you will have a choice: make peace with Israel or become the pariah of the world, forever shunned, dismissed, and driven away.   
  68. 2020 Tuesday A: As wildfires rage out of control along the West Coast, at least 36 people in California alone are dead because of the conflagrations.  All of this is easily preventable if only proper forest management would move to the fore once again.  IF (and this is a big IF) the environmentalists and their Democratic Party stooges GENUINELY loved wildlife, particularly endangered species, would it not make more sense to protect their habitats by proper management coupled with an emphasis on protecting the flora and the fauna?  It is all so unnecessary the level of destruction occurring in our forests that we hope in 2022, the people of California, Oregon, and elsewhere where dimwits rule remember everything these people have done and vote them out en mass!  Enough is enough!
  69. 2020 Tuesday B: During a speech, Democratic vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris lets it slip that if she and “Pro-China Joe” Biden are elected, it will be a “Harris administration.”  Folks, everyone knows this so don’t act shocked.  Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, California, the county doubles the reward for information leading to the POS shooter who attacked two L.A. Sheriff’s deputies as they sat in their patrol car in Compton, California, from $100,000 to $200,000 and the sheriff encourages race-baiter Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to put up the same amount; in effect, telling him to put his money where his mouth is.  So far, we’ve heard nothing from “King James” nor did we believe we would.  He’s a punk.  Finally, the city of Louisville, Kentucky, settles on $12 million to the family of Breonna Taylor.  She is the woman who died in a crossfire of lead when police officers stormed into her and her boyfriend’s apartment with a NO-KNOCK WARRANT and then when the boyfriend opened up, she died in a fusillade of lead.   
  70. 2020 Tuesday C: Following the signing of the peace accord at the White House earlier in the day, Palestinians begin firing rockets into neighboring Israel, wounding some citizens as they went about their daily lives.  The Palestinians are a bunch of sniveling pigs.  Stop!  Elsewhere, in Iraq, rockets begin landing near the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.  This clearly is the work of the bottom-feeder Iranian Revolutionary Guard.  We would hope the Trump administration sinks both their navy and takes out the oil refineries leaving them even more Third World than they now are.  What is clear is that the new peace process in the Middle East is one that has a greater chance of succeeding and sources inform us that Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, possibly Yemen, Algeria, and perhaps Qatar might join in the process.  Elsewhere, in response to the potential Iranian threat to attack a U.S. ambassador, President Trump warns the mullahs that they will pay a price ONE-THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than anything they might do.  Could we see Tehran go up in a mushroom cloud?
  71. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 29,386,463 confirmed cases, UP by 271,986 cases, 930,589 confirmed deaths, UP by 4,993 deaths, and 19,943,453 confirmed recoveries, UP by 270,382 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,665,316 confirmed cases, UP by 28,896 new cases, 198,085 confirmed deaths, UP by 718 new deaths, and 3,612,064 confirmed recoveries, UP by 31,279 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  72. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 768,334 confirmed cases, 14,477 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,887 confirmed cases, 99 confirmed deaths, and 3,693 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 83,962 confirmed cases, 2,096 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 450,425 confirmed number of cases, 32,655 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.  Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 162,273 confirmed cases, 1,141 confirmed deaths, and 120,443 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the rockets, Mo!
  73. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,995.60, UP 2.27 points (+0.008%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,190.32, UP 133.67 points (+1.21%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,401.20, UP 17.66 points (+0.52%).  The price of GOLD is $1,961.90 per troy oz., -4.30 (-0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $27.34 per troy ounce, -0.119 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $978.40 per troy oz, -3.80 (-0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, -0.006 (-0.20%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,417.50 per troy oz., +8.00 (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $38.39 per barrel, +0.11 (+0.29%).  Today, COFFEE is $124.30 per metric ton, +1.00 (+0.81).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.78 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them.  Today, communist China’s ally, the World Trade Organization released a ruling that says ‘the U.S. violated international regulations by imposing trade tariffs on $278 billion of Chi-Com goods entering the U.S.’  Stop the crying, Beijing, this is NOTHING ruling, and the U.S. will continue punishing you, authoritarian SOBS.
  74. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 227,150,151 confirmed cases, +480,596, 4,671,400 confirmed deaths, +8,373 and 203,826,456 confirmed recoveries, +454,052.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 42,432,847 confirmed cases, UP 144,643 from yesterday’s reporting, 684,572 confirmed deaths, UP 2,231,[vi] and 32,244,493 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,709.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]   
  75. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 366,118 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 37,960 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  76. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,518,943 confirmed cases, 67,632 confirmed deaths, and 2,378,010 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,499,061 confirmed cases, 49,254 confirmed deaths, and 2,413,074 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 73,268 confirmed cases, 671 confirmed deaths, and 72,597 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 615,582 confirmed cases, 7,153 confirmed deaths, and 258,825 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New York: they have 2,423,298 confirmed cases, 55,269 confirmed deaths, and 2,116,680 confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  77. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,202,212 confirmed cases, 7,452 confirmed deaths, and 1,112,533 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Pierre and Miquelon, 213th area on the list: 31 cases of the virus, 1 confirmed death and 30 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  78. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,814.39, UP 236.82 points (+0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,161.53, UP 123.77 points (+0.82%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,480.70, UP 37.65 points (+0.85%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.60 per barrel, +2.13 (+3.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,795.20 per troy oz., -11.90 (-0.66%) while the price of SILVER is $23.89 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $941.90 per troy oz, +3.20 (+0.34%) while the price of COPPER is $4.41 per pound, +0.09 (+2.06%).

[xiii]        
  79. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.391 per gallon, $3.084 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.876 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other Delaware: $2.998.  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- Liechtenstein: $6.865 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,764,701,405,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  80. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, has a new bill with which to deny U.S. recognition of the Taliban ‘government’ in Afghanistan.  His GOP colleagues have sent a letter to U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken demanding the U.S. State Department slap a designation of ‘foreign terror group’ atop the Taliban which they are.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban 2.0 is the same terror group it has always been.’
  81. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 174 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle down along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 81 since her singular visit anywhere in the vicinity of the border.  What a disaster.  
  82. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korean continues demonstrating that they’re ‘still with us’ by test-firing cruise missiles into waters near Japan and South Korea.  When President Donald J. Trump was in office, relations between the so-called ‘hermit kingdom’ and the United States were relatively cordial whereas now, the North Koreans are ramping up their activities.
  83. 2021 Wednesday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The U.S. Department of Defense and Health and the Department of Human Services is planning on buying 1.4 million doses of Regeneron.  In other (BOGUS) news we heard today, ‘immigrants (i.e., ILLEGAL) will reportedly have to show ‘proof of Chi-Vi vaccination before swarming across the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Sure, right- how is this going to work?  Next, as the Biden regime continues pushing the idea of Chi-Vi booster shots atop 2-3 immunizations for the Wuhan Virus, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that MORE info regarding the need for such ‘boosters’ must be handed over by the Biden regime’s leaders.
  84. 2021 Wednesday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-And Authoritarianism News– As demands from the illegitimate regime in the White House grow for everyone to get vaccinated with the Chi-Vi vaccines, calls for ‘religious exemptions’ are on the increase.  We suspect that the Christian Scientist and Jehovah’s Witnesses’ churches are going to increase membership.
  85. 2021 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $44.77 (2) AstraZeneca $56.45 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.42 (4) BioNTech $355.25 (5) Moderna $434.46.  Follow the money, folks, follow the money.  All this talk of booster shots on top of the vaccines is crazy what with more and more reports about problems caused by the vaccines continue to proliferate.  IF you seek the truth, you must watch One America News and Newsmax.  The vaccines are causing far more problems than are reported in the mainstream media, which is not right, especially when European nations now are backing away from any discussion of booster shots.  The only reason the talk of booster shots is intensifying is because the Deep State and the Democrats are getting rich off them.  Look at that pig, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci- this guy is growing wealthy off the suffering of the American people.
  86. 2021 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.87 (2) General Dynamics: $198.48 (3) Boeing: $214.22 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.07 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $355.74.  This is how the Deep State and elected members of Congress grow rich, investing in companies in which they send billions of dollars.  This is not only illegal but highly immoral.
  87. 2021 Wednesday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.01 (3) Honeywell: $221.69 (4) 3M: $184.19 (5) Teijen: $1,646.00.  These stocks are going to take off like rockets as the Deep State and elected members of Congress- and their staffers- continue investing in these firms either through themselves or via straw persons such as, uh, well, like Hunter Biden.
  88. 2021 Wednesday N: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $110.81 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.88 (3) Maple Leaf Foods Inc./Tofurkey: $27.11.  Like it or not, this is the next push as the Green New Deal continues becoming a part of our lives whether we want it to be or we don’t.  All one need do is to watch the movie, “Soylent Green” starring Edward G. Robinson and Charlton Heston.  Popular culture has a way of becoming reality if one lives long enough.
  89. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden- ever a man of science- says that ‘human activity is the root cause of extreme weather.’  Next, Joe Biden has demanded that Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, come to the White House so he can apply pressure on them to vote for his bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’
  90. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new McLaughlin poll says that ‘Joe Biden’s approval numbers have cratered, the American people are concerned, and that NO one likes “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- my colleagues in California tell me that Kamala Harris is detested by almost everyone in the state and the only good thing about her serving in the regime is that it gets her out of their state.  Chef Itzi).
  91. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– It would appear the Biden regime is tossing Saudi Arabia to the wolves what with the withdrawal of its top anti-missile defense systems in the country.  What the hell is going on here?  In other regime-related news, one of the regime’s favorites and purported candidate for U.S. ambassador to Ukraine- Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman- says if ‘what we hear about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, he must go.’  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Both of these men are absolute disgraces. [xvii].  Next, the U.S. Army says that soldiers refusing to get the ‘VID vaccinations may be forced out of the Army with less-than-honorable discharges.’  Yet, the U.S. Postal Service and elected members of Congress and their staffers do NOT have to undergo vaccination.  WTF!
  92. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– Something very strange occurred today when the Biden regime trotted out an enfeebled old Joe Biden to hold a Zoom conference with Prime Minister Scott Morrison of Australia and Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson of England in which, the three leaders announced a new triumvirate of sorts with which to help the Aussies obtain nuclear-powered submarines.  Although the Chi-Coms were not mentioned, they acted as though this new alignment of the BIG THREE nations would counter Beijing’s ambitions in the region.  Most observers, however, believe the Brits and the Aussies came to senile Joe Biden’s aid so as to deflect all the negative press coverage it has been getting.  Even more embarrassing is that slobbering Joe could not even pull the name of the Australian leader out of his crumbling mind.  This was embarrassing and it also demonstrated that both Boris Johnson and Scott Morrison are in the tank for the Biden regime.  This is disgraceful and besides- we also believe the three countries are in the tank with the Chi-Coms, sort of a fait accompli.
  93. 2021 Wednesday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Pope Francis- ever a creature of the left- says that ‘yes, abortion is murder but urges U.S. Roman Catholic bishops NOT to be political by denying so-called ‘Catholic politicians’ Holy Communion.  Folks, is the Pope on the Pro-Death money-go-round, too?  Like BIG PHARMA/vaccine manufacturers, Planned Parenthood and other infanticide-promoting organizations bestow BILLIONS of dollars upon left-wing and unscrupulous politicians and others.  It is akin to one selling their soul to Satan.
  94. 2021 Wednesday T: Moron News I– After little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez attended the $30,000 per plate Met Gala wearing a donated $35,000 designer dress with ‘tax the rich’ stenciled on the back of it, conservative groups are demanding an ethics investigation into perhaps the stupidest member of the U.S. House of Representatives which is indeed saying a lot.  We doubt any ethics investigation will go anywhere.  Look at Ilhan Omar, that woman married her brother to defraud U.S. immigration authorities and she is doing A-Okay.
  95. 2021 Wednesday U: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3595 what with a $17 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 07, 28, 45, and Mega 08.  Out of 108,351 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,854 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Dorose Liquor in Chatsworth, CA 91311 and (2) 7-Eleven in Vacaville, CA 95688.

  96. 2021 Wednesday V: The Wrap-Up– As someone who lives in Hawaii, I do not have an opinion on the recall election in California.  However, my colleagues living there say that it may have been a good thing if the Republican National Committee had dumped millions of dollars in the state to wage 24/7 ads blasting what they say is the ‘worst governor in the nation.’  Instead, it became a personality battle between Larry Elder and Governor Gavin Newsom, a battle that could not be won no matter how likable Mr. Elder is and how bad Governor Newsom is.  This is the Democrat Party’s secret weapon- Republican ambivalence.  They look at California and say, “We can’t win there,” and thus they send no money to help turn the tide.  The Republicans say, ‘move forward, we will return next year.’  No, GOP, you won’t.  The numbers of illegals flooding the state and the corruption surrounding the election system there is going to prevent that from occurring just as it will help empower Democrats to win the remaining few House seats currently held by Republicans.  You had your chance, and you blew it, all because the GOP itself is corrupt and unwilling to fight fire with fire.  My colleagues said the proof of election fraud is in the pudding: in less than an hour after the polls closed, the results were in. Amazing how that happens, and Governor Newsom won by Kim Jong Un and Fidel Castro numbers.  California is lost forever.
  97. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day- Friends, we wish that Rush Limbaugh were still with us because he did predict that the Dems would discover a way by which, they could make elections meaningless and boy was he right.  They have tried to topple our system of elections through corrupting them just as they have by flooding the country with loads of illegal aliens.  The tricky thing about the illegal aliens is that many of them still cling to Christianity, a religion the Democrats despise and detest.  They also want them to get abortions- plenty of them- something your average illegal does not seek because of love of children.  Add to that the fact that the leftists are blatant socialists and have mobs of storm-troopers in the street and one can understand WHY the illegals are drifting more and more to the right and are eagerly registering as Republicans even though- technically- if we abide by the law- they cannot.  However, if it’s good enough for the Dems then it’s good enough for us.  I think it’s going to be  good election cycle.  The question is, can we maintain the wins or will we need to outlaw the Democratic Party?  I say, ‘OUTLAW THEM.’  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0953 a 7” x 5” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Lone Rose.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On October 08, 1978, Cheap Trick released their first live album, “Live at Budokan.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

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

[ii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

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

[v] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

[vi] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xvii] IF the charges against Gen. Milley are true- and we pray they aren’t- his name will fall alongside those of Russian FBI spy Robert Hanssen and CIA traitor Aldrich Ames.  Names that every time they are heard cause patriotic Americans to spit.  This scumbag, Gen. Milley, says that ‘his calls to his Chi-Com ‘counterpart’ (we believe, MASTER) were designed to prevent conflict between the Chi-Coms and the U.S.  Folks, we believe that Milley is a creature of Beijing.  This is definitely NOT good.

Trump’s number one advisor Kellyanne Conway announces she will be leaving the White House at the end of the month.  Meanwhile, Kim Yo-Jong, Kim Jong Un’s sister, says her brother is in a coma and that she will be taking charge from here on out.  Finally, after weeks of calm, riots break out in Detroit leading the police to arrest at least 42 people.
  64. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 213,273,952 confirmed cases, +679,473, 4,453,032 confirmed deaths, +8,445 and 190,805,708 confirmed recoveries, +594,774.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 38,813,549 confirmed cases, UP 268,405 from yesterday’s reporting, 646,663 confirmed deaths, UP 1,605, [vi] and 30,564,746 confirmed recoveries, UP 91,942.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]  
  65. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 328,075 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 76,003 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[viii]   
  67. 2021 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 999,110 confirmed cases, 6,856 confirmed deaths, and 923,616 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Bermuda, 189th country on the list: 2,750 cases of the virus, 33 confirmed deaths and 2,593 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  68. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,331.71, UP 215.63 points (+0.61%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,942.65, UP 227.99 points (+1.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,479.53, UP 37.86 points (+0.85%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.75 per barrel, +0.21 (+0.32%).  The price of GOLD is $1,805.30 per troy oz., -0.80 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $22.59 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,012.80 per troy oz, -1.30 (-0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.23 per pound, -0.01 (-0.13%).

[xiii]        
  69. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.394 per gallon, $2.974 in Florida, $4.068 in Hawaii, and $3.909 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other location- Rhode Island: $3.060.  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- Lithuania: $5.698 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,676,366,080,523 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Saudi Arabia 2, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea with $132 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  70. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As things in Afghanistan continue going to hell, at least one Afghan soldier was killed by Taliban thugs outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport and three others wounded in action.   Meanwhile, U.S. Embassy staff in Kabul reports harrowing experiences by those who manage to get through the cordon outside the HKIA.  As if this isn’t bad enough, the Taliban told the Biden regime that ‘IF the U.S. is not out of the country by the deadline of August 31, that will be crossing their RED LINE.’  Add to this humiliation the fact that the Chi-Coms are laughing at their stooge in the White House, heaping insult atop the old codger on state-run media.  (Note- here’s a good one: A new report says that 229 ex-Gitmo detainees have returned to the War on Terror as we all knew they would).
  71. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 152 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xvii] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 59 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $740,075,040.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $255,043,156,448.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,624,352.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,624,354.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  72. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The FDA has given the Pfizer-BioNTech Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine full approval which is going to lead to loads of problems as we shall see.  First of all, Pentagon spokesman Admiral John Kirby said today that ‘ALL U.S. military personnel must get the vaccine- or else.’  Next, U.S. Surgeon General Admiral Vivek Murthy said today that he expects more businesses and universities to impose vaccine mandates on customers and students since the FDA cleared the vaccine.
  73. 2021 Monday I: Health and Medical Alerts– The Food and Drug Administration is warning U.S. citizens NOT to use Ivermectin to treat the Chi-Com Kung Flu Virus.  Meanwhile, a new report that came out and then seemed to vanish suggests that vaccinated people are more inclined to come down with serious illnesses than unvaccinated people than previously thought.  NO f—king way any of us plan to get this crap vaccine.  Dr. Ben Carson says that ‘vaccine mandates are shaping a terrible future.’
  74. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says ‘yes, there is mask fatigue, but everyone is going to have to continue wearing them’ even as we see pictures of the big soiree held by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian hypocrite, over the weekend where NO ONE but the servers wore masks.  What a farce, what a joke, what bulls**t but apparently when a Democrat hosts a $29,000 per plate party and no one but the staff wears masks, why should any of the rest of us wear masks?  We have no intention of bowing down to this crap anymore.  Speaking of Democrats, New York judges are ordering that ALL defendants get vaccinated for the Bat Flu or else.  What is up with all these threats?  Joe Biden said today that ‘since the FDA approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, he expects more businesses to demand that ALL employees get vaccinated or lose their jobs.  Finally, the fake news has terrified enough people that a poll says 40-percent of the American people are less likely to fly on airlines if the mask mandates go by the wayside.
  75. 2021 Monday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $49.93 (2) AstraZeneca $58.80 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.61 (4) BioNTech $382.10 (5) Moderna $411.89.
  76. 2021 Monday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.96 (2) General Dynamics: $198.01 (3) Boeing: $219.40 (4) Lockheed Martin: $357.35 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $362.68.
  77. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden urges the U.S. Supreme Court to keep his evictions moratorium in place.  Speaking of the decrepit regime leader, his approval ratings have dropped below the fifties to 48-percent (which in all truth- without the Fake News interference- is most likely down in the low thirties at best).
  78. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– National Security Advisor Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan said this morning that ‘Joe Biden won’t rule out sending MORE troops to Afghanistan to help beleaguered Americans and Afghan allies trying to get through the cordon surrounding the Hamid Karzai International Airport.’  (Note- Joe is going to get us into a wider war.  Someone please tell the reprobate losers Susan Rice and Barack Hussein Obama to STOP destroying the country).  Even more shocking is that an Axios report says that the Biden regime is NOT expected to fire ANY OFFICIALS over the ongoing debacle in Afghanistan as doing so would mean the regime would have to admit that it screwed everything up.
  79. 2021 Monday O: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Police in Portland, Oregon, are investigating a shooting incident between the Proud Boys and Antifa punks.  Wouldn’t it be great if the police of Portland and of the state actually did their jobs?  Speaking of the Proud Boys, leader Enrique Tarrio gets five months in the slammer for having burned a frigging Black Lives Matter flag.  What a load of crap but that is what happens when a fake regime is in the White House.
  80. 2021 Monday P: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov spent his last day in office by saying to his accusers, ‘someday the truth is going to come out’ as to how he was railroaded out of office.  Still, the loser can’t make any friends what him leaving his dog behind in the gubernatorial mansion and his commuting the sentences of FOUR CONVICTED MURDERERS.  Public opinion is staunchly deadest against these actions and yet, the outgoing governor did it anyway.  We expect California’s loser Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to do the same thing in the (hopeful) waning days of his regime seeing as how millions of Californians are anxious to see him go.
  81. 2021 Monday Q: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, tested positive for the Chi-Vi today after testing positive last week.  Speaking of Governor Abbott, Tucker Carlson on Fox News this evening asked WHEN the Lone Star State’s governor is going to deploy troops to the southern border.
  82. 2021 Monday R: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– Here are the results for the Powerball Monday Night Draw #875 what with a $293 million jackpot on the line: 17, 36, 47, 60, 61, and Mega 15.  Out of 43,992 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 24 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $495.
  83. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Get this- Joe Biden’s aides reportedly were afraid to challenge their boss’ timeline on fleeing Afghanistan.  Who is fearful of Joe Biden?  What a load of crap.  The regime’s apparatchiks continue trying to make it appear that this senile old POS is somehow running the show.  The man can’t even tell his ass from a hole in the ground.  In other whacked out news of the day, everyone must look into the 30/30 Plan.  You won’t find it on a normal browser, use Duck-Duck Go or another secured browser to see the bulls**t the federal government is doing to U.S. farmers.  They are paying them to DESTROY croplands and to dump out any oil they may have so by 2030, 30-percent of the land in the U.S. will be in ‘conservation.’  This also is going to create dependence upon foreign sources of food.  This is frigging crazy.
  84. 2022 Tuesday: For now, unlike my colleagues, I am going to keep my thoughts to myself.  There are a whole lot of intrusions out there seeking to crash our servers.  It is what it is.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Once again, Europe f**ked everything up when they began jimmying around with copyright laws but what the hell- it caused record companies to dig deep into their vaults and to then release archival material lest they lose the copyright.  Thus, today, we have the next live album from the Beach Boys- “Graduation Day 1966- Live at the University of Michigan”- released on December 09, 2016.  You get two shows for the price of one plus the rehearsals.  If you enjoyed the old Beach Boys album, “Beach Boys Concert”- which is a glorious live album for its day, you will most definitely enjoy this one.  We hope you will seek this one out and to make it part of your daily listening rotation- you will be glad you did.

228. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, AUGUST 16, 2022

2020 Sunday B: The Democrats continue undergoing meltdowns as they blast the Trump administration for proposing cuts to the U.S. Postal Service. They want more money going to the USPS so it can ‘manage the increase in mail-in ballots.’ You know, there was a time when the Democrats attempted to conceal their election-stealing attempts whereas now, they could give a hoot.

  60. 2020 Sunday B: The Democrats continue undergoing meltdowns as they blast the Trump administration for proposing cuts to the U.S. Postal Service.  They want more money going to the USPS so it can ‘manage the increase in mail-in ballots.’  You know, there was a time when the Democrats attempted to conceal their election-stealing attempts whereas now, they could give a hoot.  Various cities have reported boxes of election ballots piling up at post offices or at storage sites, ballots that will flood in on Election Day all in favor of Democrats.  Democrats demand the U.S. postmaster testify in Congress on August 24, the day the GOP Convention commences.  As for election-thieving, well, two can play the same game and when the Democrats are BLOWN out in November, let us see what the sniveling scumbags try to do then?  An actual attempted overthrow of the government?  Thank God gun sales are skyrocketing across the country- careful what you wish for, Democratic Party!  DO NOT ALLOW THE DEMOCRATS TO STEAL THE ELECTION!

Truman so famously said, “The buck stops here.”  Next, Politico stuck a journalistic dagger into the neck of dictator Joe Biden when they said his ‘chip on his shoulder’ is what caused the debacle the world is watching in Afghanistan as he would NOT listen to his generals.  In other Afghan-related news, at least seven desperate people are dead from falling several thousand feet from outbound aircraft at the Kabul airport.  Meanwhile, outside the White House, Afghan Americans are protesting the White House usurper by shouting, “THEY’RE KILLING OUR PEOPLE!”
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– today is Day No. 146 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 52 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Here are the numbers for illegal aliens and the cost of caring for them as provided by OAN.  First, the cost this day alone is: $652,723,151.  Next, here is the appalling cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country for just this year: $248,821,415,836.  Imagine the good that money could do for the American people and not the flotsam and jetsam of the Third World?  Next, here are the numbers of illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,555,525.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers for all time: 36,555,525.  Horrifying, simply horrifying.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks).

Security Council pushes for talks to bring about the formation of the new government in the new Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– As the Taliban continues accumulating and securing power across Afghanistan, Taliban thugs both inside and outside the empty U.S. embassy are chanting, “Death to America, death to America, death to America.”  Nice they love us so much.  Meanwhile, at the airport in Kabul, U.S. troops in two difference incidents shoot dead a pair of Taliban thugs.  Chaos at the airport has put a hold on exit flights.  As the catastrophe unfolds, dictator Joe Biden says he stands by his decision ‘to flee Afghanistan and to leave the people to the mercies of the Taliban.’  Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that this is “Saigon on steroids.”
  72. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– today Health experts announced that ‘herd immunity may never be achieved with COVID-19.’ Meanwhile, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the American people must ‘set aside personal liberties so we can join forces to do battle with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’ (It is ALWAYS, we must surrender our God-given personal liberties to climb aboard the BIG GOVERNMENT train).
  73. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– An Indiana man found himself in the intensive care unit of his city after contracting flesh-eating bacteria following the consumption of raw oysters.  (Folks, we gave up eating raw oysters long ago and would recommend that everyone else do the same thing.  Besides, they do not do what people believe they do, it is all in the mind).
  74. 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Harvard University and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, medical professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff told Greg Kelly on Newsmax over the weekend that Joe Biden’s demand for vaccine mandates creates distrust of the vaccines in people who have already had the disease.  Dr. Kulldorff says it must stop.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Dr. Francis Collins- Director of National Institute of Health- says that ‘unvaccinated Americans pose more problems for the United States than do the millions of illegal aliens flooding into the country.’  What a party apparatchik.  In Colorado on the first day of school, masks and law enforcement officers are all over the place.  Speaking of schools and COVID-19, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that the feds ‘cannot pay off school superintendents’ to follow the regime’s orders.  Regarding Florida, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that ‘parents cannot sue over the mask ban’ he put into place with an executive order.
  75. 2021 Monday M: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $48.91 (2) AstraZeneca $58.75 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.84 (4) BioNTech $343.10 (5) Moderna $373.86.  As we say, IF you wish to understand the reason for the BIG PUSH that everyone ‘get vaccinated’ or undergo immediate transport to Devil’s Island or to a leper colony (as well as all the mask mandates), just follow the money.  Politicians and bigwigs and other titans of the globe all are invested in these companies, companies that CANNOT BE SUED no matter how badly one is affected by a vaccine, which also gives them incredible power over the people they rule.
  76. 2021 Monday N: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Arizona announces that the week of August 22, 2021, is when they will release the preliminary report on the election fraud and corruption that went on in the Copper State surrounding the November 2020 Elections.  Meanwhile, as the disastrous Biden regime stumbles about like a punch-drunk boxer, we hope that more states will begin audits of the 2020 Elections because this disastrous mess cannot continue much longer.  Yes, we do miss President Donald J. Trump and he must return to the White House.  Those involved in the rampant election fraud and corruption must go to prison if not to the gallows for their crimes and perfidy.  There are many, many traitors who must pay the price for their betrayal, their disloyalty, and their treachery.  Chef Hector Santanamos Del Soto.
  77. 2021 Monday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Now that Joe Biden has sold out the Afghan people to the Taliban and- even worse– to the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump asks the question: ‘who will Joe Biden sell out next?’  The President also slammed the usurper in the White House for his ‘grossly incompetent’ abandonment of Afghanistan to the jihadists. 
  78. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden News I– Afghan Americans arrived outside the White House over the past weekend protesting the abandonment of their country to the cruel jihadist hoodlums.  Speaking of senile Joe Biden, chief pollster at the Trafalgar Group, Robert Cahaly- says that ‘Joe Biden is more popular than his policies.’  All day, the White House said that Joe Biden was ‘going to address the American people’ on the mess in Afghanistan.  Finally, he did and did what all of us knew he would: blame President Donald J. Trump and the Afghan people for being losers.  Wow.  The Deputy National Security Adviser Jonathan Finer says there will be ‘grave consequences for the Taliban if the riffraff interfere in the U.S. withdrawal from Kabul and across Afghanistan.’  Even worse for Joe Biden is his reluctance to give American citizens priority in the evacuation out of the destabilized Central Asian country.
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. State Department said earlier today that ALL U.S. embassy staff is at the airport in Kabul but thanks to the pandemonium occurring there, the U.S. authorities on the ground have suspended outbound flights until control can be reestablished.   Meanwhile, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley is defending his misguided assessment as to the strength of the Taliban.  (Note- Gen. Milley, you sound like the Nazis who underestimated Russian troop strength in late 1941 through 1942.  YOU must resign, sir.  NOW).  In other Biden regime news, Joe says the USDA is going to permanently increase food stamp benefits, i.e., SNAP benefits, because there are millions of foreign invaders who need to eat.  In other Biden regime news, the Bidenistas are filing a challenge to a recent court order to revive President Donald J. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Come on, Joe, we have enough illegal aliens in the country.  Can’t we stop already? 
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News I– As things continue deteriorating in Afghanistan, Vice President Mike Pence places the blame for the calamity unfolding there squarely atop the culprit responsible: drooling Joe Biden.  Former Army General (and CIA Director) David H. Petraeus says that ‘no good can come from the precipitous abandonment of Kabul to the Islamists.’  Security experts are now saying that ‘another 9-11-style attack is only a matter of time’ (especially with wide-open borders).  As things worsen in Kabul, the Republican Party is demanding the resignations of Joe Biden, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.  (Speaking of ‘Cryin’ Chuck,’ he is outraged over the need to crack down on fake China Virus vaccine cards.  Chuck- f**k you).
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News II– An angry House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is demanding that the House of Representatives launch a probe into the abrupt collapse of Afghanistan.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, says that ‘Joe Biden takes the final blame for the collapse of Afghanistan.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s arrogance led to the turmoil in Afghanistan.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell is accusing the Biden regime of outing U.S. intelligence officers on Twitter.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Political News III– Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies told Newsmax that Joe Biden may be unable to control the amount of Afghan refugees who will try to enter our country.  Next, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should resign from office over the disaster in Afghanistan.’   U.S. GOP Senate campaign Chairman Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, is floating the idea that the time is now to use the 25th Amendment to get enfeebled old Joe Biden out of the White House ASAP.  Former National Security Adviser to President Donald J. Trump- H.R. McMaster- says that ‘Joe Biden’s humanitarian disaster will equate with increased security risks for the United States.’  Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Joe Biden is the most incompetent commander-in-chief in the past forty years’ (the other one being President Jimmy Carter).   (Note- Joe Biden claims he will not repeat the past mistakes made by three other presidents in Afghanistan).   
  83. 2021 Monday U: Political News IV– Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, says that ‘firings must occur surrounding the debacle in Afghanistan.’  Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says that ‘Joe Biden ignored warnings regarding Afghanistan and now owns the disaster.’  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, told Greg Kelly on Newsmax that the ‘administration had NO plan with which to evacuate our embassy or the people who fought alongside us in the Central Asian hellhole.’  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says ‘we should have maintained a presence at Baghram Air Base instead of leaving it to the enemy.’  Both agree that WHEN we have to return to the ‘graveyard of empires,’ the Taliban will be better armed with U.S. abandoned weapons of all types.’
  84. 2021 Monday V: Miscellaneous News I– The federal government is giving Florida $500 million to help with the manatee crisis.  Meanwhile, the U.S. National Park Service is making masks mandatory at all parks in the U.S.
  85. 2021 Monday W: Business News– The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration- the NHTSA for short- is probing issues regarding autopilot in Tesla motor vehicles.
  86. 2021 Monday X: Mass Shootings News– It appears to have been a quiet weekend in Chicago what with eight dead and fifty-six injured in shootings across the Windy City.
  87. 2021 Monday Y: Big Tech News– Google whistleblower Scott Voorhies says that his employer changed its algorithms to unfairly target President Donald J. Trump throughout 2020.  To keep unwelcome news trending for President Trump, they would attach old stories to new ones to keep them pushed up to the front of the pack.  Elsewhere, T-Mobile is probing claims that hackers ripped off the data of 100 million users.
  88. 2021 Monday Z: Environmental News I– As we have said for close to a decade now, the Sun is the driver of all climate change, NOT CO2.  Well, a new study confirms that but observe this: solar activity- sunspots, solar flares, and solar winds- ebbs and flows.  When there is more activity, the entire Solar System warms up and when there is less, it cools down.  IF you get rid of ALL carbon dioxide emissions, plants will wither and die, oxygen production will fall off, and eventually, you end up with a planet like Mars.  All one must do to learn the truth is to find unbiased university professors willing to teach truthful geography classes and not this dumb-ass Marxist ‘global warming’ bulls**t dimwits such as AOC, Al Gore, and Greta Thunberg run around squealing and crying about.  Wake up, dummies.
  89. 2021 Monday AA: Natural Disasters News– Like California, wildfires are raging across Spain.  Meanwhile, one person died over the weekend as a party boat sailing the calm waters of Lake Conroe in the Texas town of Conroe flipped over when a freak storm crashed into the ship.  The two-story craft had fifty-three people aboard when the mishap occurred, and an older man died at the hospital following injuries sustained in the accident.
  90. 2021 Monday BB: California State News– As Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom continues sobbing that the “GOP is trying to get me in the recall election,’ today, we learned that copious quantities of bond money set aside to build water infrastructure in the Golden State is just sitting there, unused.  Damn it, Gov. Newsom, if you even cared about your job, get work underway NOW on the Sacramento Delta diversion project that will safely send northern California water south to the farmers and the citizens of the state.  Loser.  Regarding “Nazi” Newsom, a new poll (supposedly) claims Golden State voters find themselves split in the recall effort to remove the WORST governor in all fifty states and five territories.
  91. 2021 Monday CC: Nevada State News– Former Republican Silver State Attorney General Adam Laxalt has filed papers to compete against sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, D-NV, for the seat in November 2022.  
  92. 2021 Monday DD: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov (who says his mother was the one who imbued his scandalous behavior into him when he was a youngster) says, “I could have beaten impeachment.”  Then why are you leaving, you corrupt POS?  Even as Cuomo is in the process of exiting the governor’s office, he issued a mandate today: ALL Empire State health care professionals MUST undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Wow.  What a loser.
  93. 2021 Monday EE: Oklahoma State News– Patriotic Oklahomans demonstrated at their state capital over the weekend, protesting the Chi-Vi vaccine and mask mandates government is trying to foist onto them. 
  94. 2021 Monday FF: Texas State News– A Texas Supreme Court justice issues a temporary injunction against Lone Star State Democrats seeking to disobey Governor Greg Abbott’s ban on mask mandates in the schools and in public life.  Meanwhile, Texans will soon be able to open carry firearms without permits.
  95. 2021 Monday GG: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed actor Johnny Depp says that Hollywood is ‘boycotting me.’
  96. 2021 Monday HH: The Wrap Up– Prophesy- how soon will we see landing craft doors slamming down on Taiwanese beaches, the subjugation of Ukraine, Islamism spreading like wildfire throughout all of Central Asia, and Cuban and Venezuelan hegemony dispersing through all of Latin America?  With the Antitrump in the White House, we suspect it will begin soon… El Chilote predicts this on this day…
  97. 2022 Tuesday: The plot against President Donald J. Trump continues to grow by the day.  I would like to ask the readers of our blog, did you ever think- since we began back in 2009 writing for the Chi-Com blog site, Choseit.com, that we would have the misfortune of seeing the collapse of our country into Venezuela-style socialism?  Oh, it might not be that way at the moment, folks, but if we do not continue kicking butt from today onward and into 2024, it will be here before you know it.  You folks in Alaska- send Senator Lisa Murkowski packing and elect Kelly Tshibaka and Sarah Palin.  You folks in Wyoming, send that godawful witch “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney packing.  It is time to reclaim our country and to continue reclaiming it.  It’s that or troubled times for all of us but only if we allow it.  I seriously doubt my fellow Americans will permit this to befall our wonderful country.  We know we won’t.  Tell me what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0924 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “You Forgot My Tip.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Live long enough and eventually, one will hear every last lick recorded by a veteran band which is why we have “The Big Beat 1963,” a ‘compilation album’ of sorts that came out on December 17, 2013.  Truly more of a Brian Wilson album seeing as how the compilations are his, the album features tracks he wrote prior to the Beach Boys recorded by other up-and-coming pop bands and artists at the time.  According to the source for everything- world-famous Wikipedia- the album was released to ‘keep up with European copyright laws’ that said if you didn’t release something by such and such a date, one’s copyright on the material could be lost.  Thus, we have “The Big Beat 1963,” an album containing 22 heretofore unreleased tracks.  We hope you seek this one out and add it to your growing list of recording artists.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we have.  Who knows?  You might even be able to find it at your local library.

1942 Friday: SS troops at Minsk, Belorussia, gas 1,000 Jews.

  57. 2008 Thursday: Scientists reported the Phoenix spacecraft had confirmed the presence of frozen water in Martian soil.
  58. 2009 Friday: The space shuttle Endeavour and its seven astronauts returned to Earth, completing a long but successful construction job that boosted the size and power of the International Space Station.
  59. 2013 Wednesday: The super PAC, “Ready for Hillary,”[v] raises over $1,000,000 since its inception earlier in the year; most of the money comes from mega-donors for President Barack Obama.
  60. 2014 Thursday: President Obama authorizes the use of airstrikes against ISIS trash in Syria as well as in Iraq should they threaten any American military personnel as well as for cargo planes to deliver food to border areas between Syria, Iraq, and Turkey.  Meanwhile, the death toll from the worst recorded Ebola outbreak in history surpassed 700 in West Africa.
  61. 2015 Friday: After killing the beloved lion, Cecil, the Zimbabwean authorities demand that the United States extradite American dentist, Walter James Palmer.  Zimbabwe says the dentist lured the lion from a game preserve so he could shoot it on a safari. 
  62. 2016 Sunday: Yuriko Koike becomes the first woman elected by the citizens of Tokyo to be its mayor.  
  63. 2017 Monday: After less than two weeks, foul-mouth Anthony Scaramucci, aka the Mooch- is forced out of his position as communications director for Donald Trump’s White House.  The next to get the boot is the wily 5th U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.  This loser first became secretary on January 20, 2017 and served under President Donald J. Trump from then until today.  His replacement, the 5.5th Acting U.S. Secretary of the DHS Elaine Duke assumed office.  She would serve until December 06, 2017.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: The 104th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to replace 99th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement.  He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later.  Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.  Little did they know they would not have to worry about that. [vi] Meanwhile, Facebook announces a major moment of virtue-signaling as it announces it ‘removed Russian-linked accounts that are attempting to interfere in the November 2018 Elections.’[vii] 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor.  Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  66. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women.  He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him. [viii]

  68. 2020 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 493,588 confirmed cases, UP 8,086 cases, 9,005 confirmed deaths, UP by 96, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,989 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,226 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  69. 2020 Friday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,428.32, UP 114.67 points (+0.44%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,745.27, UP 157.46 points (+1.49%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,271.12, UP 24.90 points (+0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,973.30 per troy oz., +10.50 (+0.53%) while the price of SILVER is $24.63 per troy ounce, +0.414 (+1.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $919.70 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.09) while the price of COPPER is $2.86 per pound, -0.0085 (-0.30%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.43 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.40%).  Currently, one dollar U.S. = 6.97 yuan.  Meanwhile, the U.S. unemployment rate has dropped from 13.3-percent in June to 11.1-percent in July.
  70. 2020 Friday D: Rasmussen polling has President Donald J. Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
  71. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 198,497,926 confirmed cases, +525,446, 4,232,079 confirmed deaths, +8,931 and 179,252,925 confirmed recoveries, +368,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,743,144 confirmed cases, UP 65,394 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,310 confirmed deaths, UP 380, [ix] and 29,666,084 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,303.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

  72. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,868 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 93,210 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  73. 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: 3,961,638 confirmed cases, 64,423 confirmed deaths, and 2,100,715 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,636,066 confirmed cases, 39,079 confirmed deaths, and 2,089,018 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 41,925 confirmed cases, 537 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 474,835 confirmed cases, 6,168 confirmed deaths, and 230,729 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wisconsin: they have 687,197 confirmed cases, 8,290 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [xi]

[xii]     
  75. 2021 Saturday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,935.47, DOWN 149.06 points (-0.42%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,672.68, DOWN 105.59 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,395.26, DOWN 23.89 points (-0.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $73.81 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.19%).  The price of GOLD is $1,812.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.55 per troy ounce, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,045.90 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $4.48 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[xiii] The price of PALLADIUM is $2,660.50 per troy oz, +14.52 (+0.55%).

[xvi]        
  76. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.367 per gallon, $2.972 in Florida, $4.092 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.919.  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- Curacao: $4.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,587,535,043,912 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  77.  2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 130 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘Booty Call Mattress,’ aka the squealing swamp hog of the Everglades, aka the yowling midnight lemur to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 36th day since her one and only visit to the border and again to have done nothing about it.  Okay, One American News always presents the costs of illegal immigration for the American People.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegals pouring across the southern border: $635,102,752.  Absolutely shocking.  Horrible we know.  Next, here is the cost for this year: $231,328,045,120.  Imagine all this money going to care for ILLEGAL ALIENS!  Next, here are the numbers estimated to have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,376,624.  Finally, here are the CONSERVATIVE estimates as to how many illegal aliens are roaming the land: 36,376,662.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an army of storm troopers the Democrats can deploy against the rest of us (which is why ammunition is flying off the shelves right now).
  78. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has written a letter to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, urging her NOT to include mass amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the country.  She won’t listen.  
  79. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The Biden regime is threatening a new round of lockdowns and restrictions if more Americans don’t rush out and get vaccinated against the Chi-Vi.   Last week, there was mention of the NEW Lambda variant out of Peru being worse than the Delta variant and then within a day, all talk of the Lambda variant (SARS-CoV-2) vanished out of the window, and it was back to pounding the Delta drums.   Amazing how the libs continue guiding all talk on the Chi-Vi and how everyone must rush out and get vaccinated.  Funny that there are more infections among VACCINATED Americans than among unvaccinated.  Something ain’t right here, folks.   Add to that the fact that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says that mRNA vaccines for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu could be approved for widespread use by next month.  Pushing, pushing, pushing!
  80. 2021 Saturday I: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3582 what with a $12 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 16, 18, 30, 32, 38, and Mega 05.  Out of 97,148 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,413 apiece.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #868 with a jackpot of $199 million up for grabs: 01, 21, 22, 34, 47, and Powerball 04.  Out of 83,515 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $44,999.
  81. 2022 Sunday: IF things do not change over the next two election cycles, we may need to become friendly with the Chi-Coms.  I remember when the country was committed to being the best whereas now, we are ripping ourselves apart, thanks in large part to Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, and other of our enemies’ machinations.  Race is the Achilles heel of the United States and if our enemies continue noodling away at the seams, at some point, the nation is going to explode.  Add to that the fact that we cannot trust our elected leaders who all seem to be in the pay of Beijing and one can see the old maxim is true: the capitalists will sell the communists the rope with which the communists hang the capitalists.  Personally, I think it’s too late and my family and I are considering relocating to Ireland as a safe haven from the looming storm.  What is the point in remaining in country that is ripping itself to shreds?  Let me know what you all think.  Thanks- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0908 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Central Coast.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After the Beach Boys went through starts and fits back in the 1960s over Brian Wilson’s “Smile” project, an abbreviated form “Smiley Smile” hit record store shelves on September 16, 1967 (see Monday, May 23, 2022) and since it was nowhere near the project envisioned by composer Brian Wilson, it was considered a flop.  Well, years later, Brian Wilson said, “Screw it,” and relaunched the entire project with a series of live performances and a live album culled from the performance.  “Brian Wilson Presents Smile” came out on September 28, 2004, and is a mind-blowing, joyous project to behold.  NO ONE in his, her, or its right mind questions the fact that Brian Wilson is not an innovative, musical genius, certainly not anyone with sufficient gray matter, that’s for sure.  We hope you will seek this album out and that you will add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended music- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We plan on promoting the music of the Move, Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne after we wrap up Supertramp.  Stay with us.

[ii] We definitely look forward to doing the music of R.E.M. at some point in the next five years.

[iii] Let’s give him Puerto Rico. 

[iv] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[v] Hillary was raising money for a long, long time.  Too bad she wasn’t a better candidate and too bad Barack Hussein Obama didn’t do a better job of helping her.

[vi] Both of President Donald J. Trump’s two court picks Neil Gorsuch (#113) and Brett Kavanaugh (#114) have voted against the president who nominated them more often than they have not- just like Associate Justice Kennedy!  What is it about Republican picks?

[vii] Regarding the Russians and election interference, what the f**k else is new?  They have been doing this sort of crap since Josef Stalin was running the country.

210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.

  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.

Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

  68. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0906 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset Sky.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys released a jam-packed 3-CD set: “Sounds of Summer: The Very Best of the Beach Boys” on June 10, 2003.  This set has approximately 80 tunes on it, big hits, not-so-big-hits, B-sides, unreleased, and archival tunes all lovingly compiled by Capitol Records with all sorts of additions with which to sweeten the pot- plus a DVD.    IF you have not yet brought the music of fun-sun-surf-hot chicks, fast cars, motorcycles, and all the rest of the music that made our summers so much delicious fun back in the 1960s and 1970s and even beyond, this is the way in which new fans and old-timers like us to accomplish this necessary task. Seek it out, don’t fret the cost, and buy it now- you will be glad you did.

[i] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[ii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

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

[iv] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[v] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[vi] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that celebrated day.

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