2020 Thursday: President Donald J.

  57. 2018 Monday: Sadly, for people around the world, the Malaysian government announces that it has been unable to determine the causes that downed Flight MH370 somewhere in the Indian Ocean (or so people believe). It disappeared on March 08, 2014, with all 239 passengers and crew aboard. 
  58. 2019 Tuesday: Law enforcement in California released information on the shooter at the Gilroy Garlic Festival- 19-year-old Santino William Legan- the punk who murdered three people before the police shot the POS dead (gotta love the cops!). Apparently, the punk posted white supremacist text messages and racist content before he embarked on his shooting spree. Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate failed to override President Donald J. Trump’s vetoes on bills blocking arms sales to Saudi Arabia.  Politicians are angry over the murder of the journalist Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey.
  59. 2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out. Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur. In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama- in his eulogy for deceased Rep. John Lewis, D-GA, lambastes President Trump for trying to steal the election, using voter intimidation and manipulation and God knows what other bull crap the former president could yank out of his mind and the attendees at the funeral, none of whom were sitting six-feet apart, leapt to their feet and applauded insanely for what seemed like hours.   Will Democrats NEVER continue trying to steal elections?  Enough is flipping enough, already, folks.  Finally, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather Pizza and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies at age 74 from the Bat Virus sent around the world by the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Bat Flu:

[x]        
  68. 2021 Friday E: 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 $4.356 per gallon, $2.976 in Florida, $4.090 in Hawaii, and $3.843 in Washington state. [xi] Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.940.  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- Burundi: $4.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,583,734,946,871 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  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 Poland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Philippines with $43 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.
  69. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, the days continue passing us by and lo and behold, today is Day No. 129 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 35 since her one and only visit to the region. Speaking of the regime for which the border czar labors, the Department of Justice is suing Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, for his order to HALT all further ground transportation of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State. Of course, the DOJ cannot have a governor fighting back but legal eagles say the Lone Star State’s case is going to be hard to topple.   
  70. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News compiles the HONEST-TO-GOD numbers of the costs and numbers surrounding our illegal alien invasion and today is NO different. First, here is the cost for just this flipping day: $585,147,264.  Imagine all the good that money could do for the American people and lo and behold, it’s going to care for noncitizens who do not deserve to be here and who must be rounded up, imprisoned in the absolute worst conditions, deprogrammed to want to come here a la “A Clockwork Orange,” and then deported via any means available.  How about we ship them to communist China?  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the invaders: $230,722,174,976.    So much money going down the crapper, folks; we must round up all of them- including the DREAMERS and any other foals calved here and ship them back NOW.  Third, here is the number of estimated illegals who have swamped the U.S. in 2021 alone: 2,364,717.  Finally, here is the fourth and final statistic, the number of illegal aliens estimated to be running amok across the United States: 36,364,710.  Remember, this is a CONSERVATIVE NUMBER.  (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 invasion army already living in our midst.  Time to exercise the 2nd Amendment…(to protect ourselves).
  71. 2021 Friday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have joined forces to demand the Biden regime awaken to the dangers of unchecked mass immigration into the United States from nearly 160 nations around the globe. Entire neighborhoods and towns are being overrun with illegal aliens and people are beginning to fight back and to end this unconstitutional mess.
  72. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden continues playing pocket pool in the White House basement, national security experts are growing concerned over the Chi-Coms ramped up silo-building. Silos are where intercontinental ballistic missiles- ICBMs- reside and it’s clear the Chi-Coms are constructing them like flies have maggots. We believe it may be time to launch a pre-emptive strike on the Chi-Coms before they go to war against the Free World.
  73. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Yesterday, Il Duce Joe Biden said that ALL federal employees and contractors will be required to get vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu or face never-ending mask-wearing, 2-3, perhaps even 4 tests a week (could be anal ones like the Chi-Coms favor for all international travelers) as well as being prohibited from traveling for job-related matters. Thus, the American Fuhrer has spoken. Yet, we learn that in places such as Massachusetts where a major outbreak of the Chi-Com Yellow Fever is underway, there seems to be a pandemic of the vaccinated, NOT the vaccinated as the liberal goobers claim.  Hence why NONE of us are going to get vaccinated for this bogus virus crisis (we have urgent care centers willing to dish out hydroxychloroquine tablets and vitamin D injections).   Yesterday, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, put forth a bill which will hold the Centers for Disease Control accountable for all the lies and propaganda they continue spewing on the Chi-Vi.
  74. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Broadway is mandating that all behind-the-scenes personnel as well as performers AND all attendees wear masks as well as present proof of vaccination. Uh, okay. Speaking of mass mask stupidity, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says ‘it’s amazing: right across the hall in the U.S. Senate, NO MASKS.’  It’s as if by magic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu has snared approximately 2 million Americans in a passport backlog.  Next, the House GOP is demanding that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and other top COVID-19 scientists testify on the Hill.   Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘Pelosi’s mask mandates are a massive overreach of her powers.’
  75. 2021 Friday L: Joe Biden News I– While Joe Biden was at some function, people noticed he had a yellow booger hanging off his chin, something of which, he was unaware. One of his aides, however, rushed to his side, handed him a note saying, ‘something’s on your chin.’ He wiped the snot off and according to some either stuck it in his mouth as though he were still in kindergarten (in his mind, he seemingly still is) or wiped it on the tabletop.  Either way, he remains our national disgrace and humiliation.  In other Joe Biden news, he took a BIG ONE on the chin when House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was unable to prevent the evictions moratorium collapse as of tomorrow morning.  It looks like the mentally decrepit, nonagenarian speaker is folding like a deck of cards. 
  76. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Department of Justice says that the Internal Revenue Service MUST hand President Donald J. Trump’s tax records over to the angry Democrat goons in the U.S. House of Representatives.
  77. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that the ‘nursing home probe into deaths in New York’ caused by the indifference or worse, by design of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov ‘should continue.’ Elsewhere, new polling out of Wyoming shows that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large congressional district, is in deep, deep trouble with the voters. She deserves it.  Next, we continue to learn about the duplicitous activities of the Catholic Charities spreading illegal aliens across the United States regardless as to whether they have the Chi-Vi or other diseases or not.  This is not good and it causing many of our Catholic members to lapse in their church support.   Finally, the Wisconsin Republicans are working at expanding the state’s 2020 Election probe.  Good for them.
  78. 2021 Friday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1681 what with a $166 million jackpot on the line: 19, 26, 31, 52, 68, and Mega 10. Out of 77,695 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $568 apiece.2022 Saturday: Hubbub continues from Tuesday’s extremely peculiar and wholly unnatural ‘speech’ by slobbering Joe Biden, you know, the one where he mumbled and stumbled through his verbal assault on President Donald J. Trump with his unblinking eyes wide open.  It’s as if he has a ‘Dr. Morrell’ in his employ, the doctor who ‘treated’ Adolf Hitler throughout the war years.  Dr. Morrell used to inject the Fuhrer with all manner of things such as vitamins, methamphetamine, even bull semen, to make his Fuhrer less crazy and more in control, none of which worked.  The Joe Biden ‘speech’ made me think of one of those ‘G.I. Joe’ movies where America’s enemies replaced the president with a look-alike clone.  It also makes me think of those lifelike dolls the Japanese use as sexual partners, whatever drooling Joe is doing, I doubt it’s truly him.  We have never been in a situation such as this.  Let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0907 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Cave in the Rocks.”  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 next studio album from Beach Boys genius, Brian Wilson- “Gettin’ In Over My Head”- came out on June 22, 2004.  Like Pete Townsend and his “Lighthouse” project that never made it to completion, Brian Wilson was working on two different projects during the 1990s, both of which never made it to fruition.  The music was there and he went back and reworked it and brought it to the public in all its radiant glory.  Brian Wilson’s band of musicians joined him as did four big guests, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, and Carl Wilson as well as other studio hotshots brought in to help him finish the project.  Fans raved over the album as do we which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out wherever it is they shop for the absolute best in music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

206. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JULY 25, 2022

2022 Monday: As the Voice of Occupied Los Angeles, California, a place overrun with illegal aliens, gangbangers, corrupt politicians, and liberal losers, let me ask a pertinent question: could Joe Biden’s feebleness be the result of long-term syphilis? Everyone knows that back in the day, not only did Senator Teddy Kennedy- aka, the “Lion of the Senate”- but so did good buddies, Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Joe Biden. Leave it to some losers like Dr. Jill to push her mentally disabled husband into a position of power that he cannot hope to ever have a grip on. Dr. Jill should be in prison and her husband in the loony bin for old gropers and hair-sniffers.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 1,620 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,167 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 51,849 confirmed cases, 1,495 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Illinois, the “Land of Lincoln,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 169,883 while the number of deaths is 7,560.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame.

  82. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.328 per gallon, $2.969 in Florida, $4.077 in Hawaii, and $3.837 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.968.  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- Dominican Republic: $4.501 per U.S. Gallon. [xix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,565,021,806,001 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xx]  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 Thailand, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75 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.
  83. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 124 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border crisis and Day No. 30 since her one and only visit to the border.  One America News compiles a running tally of the crisis down there, a tally we gladly share with our readers who don’t watch the network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $721,816,512.  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for all the noncitizens in the country: $225,379,401,728.  Third, here is the number of illegals estimated to have crossed the country just this year: 2,309,958.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the number of illegals currently residing in the country: 36,309,960.  We say this every day that when the AICPENDBLOG.COM began tapping out blogposts back in the spring of 2009, we estimated the numbers then at between 35-50 million illegals and everyone jeered at our estimates.  Thus, we did the digging and now, we believe the numbers to be closer to 75-100 million, an unsustainable number if ever one existed.  It is what it is, we guess.
  84. 2022 Monday: As the Voice of Occupied Los Angeles, California, a place overrun with illegal aliens, gangbangers, corrupt politicians, and liberal losers, let me ask a pertinent question: could Joe Biden’s feebleness be the result of long-term syphilis?  Everyone knows that back in the day, not only did Senator Teddy Kennedy- aka, the “Lion of the Senate”- but so did good buddies, Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Joe Biden.  Leave it to some losers like Dr. Jill to push her mentally disabled husband into a position of power that he cannot hope to ever have a grip on.  Dr. Jill should be in prison and her husband in the loony bin for old gropers and hair-sniffers. 

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0902 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Bird Rock.”  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.

[i] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

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

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

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds, but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

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

[vi] The so-called “Lion of the Senate,” Teddy Kennedy, a Democrat, was little more than a sexual deviate and a murderer.

[viii] 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.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

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

200. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 19, 2022

2022 Tuesday: Here is another thought- those of us who live under the despotic rule of Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom cannot wait to see the ads that “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis will drop on our bozo chief executive come late October. Gov. Newsom is such a worthless POS that he deserves ridicule and derision from everyone. The man is so flipping stupid not to comprehend that he is a target-rich environment when it comes being trolled. It’s going to be fun. Chef E.C. McCardle.

  63. 2019 Friday A: Meanwhile in the Straits of Hormuz, the Iranian Revolutionary Guard seizes the Swedish-owned but British-flagged oil tanker Stena Impero and holds it hostage.  As a show of contempt for the UK, the Iranian scum keep the ship in its waters until September 27 at which time they released the rest of the crew, having let some of them go earlier.

[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Arkansas: $2.856.  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- Nicaragua: $4.365 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,541,728,261,929 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 Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia with $180 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 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, by our count, today is Day No. 118 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, [xx] aka the gibbering jackal, aka the howling banshee, aka the twittering mountain ape, aka the chirruping jackanapes, aka Willie Brown’s bottom mattress to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border.  What’s more, it’s also her 24th day since her one and only visit to the southern border with no signs of her returning anytime soon.  Perhaps once President Donald J. Trump announces another trip to the border, the screeching night bird will schedule another quickie stop so as to make it appear as though she is doing something.  What a pathetic loser.
  74. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the latest numbers on the costs and the numbers associated with the massive pandemic of illegal alien invaders earlier today.  First, here is the Cost This Day of caring for the illegal vermin flooding our country: $584,741,376.  Imagine what this money could do for the homeless, the addicted, the mentally ill, and for veterans and minorities.  Alas, the Democrats would rather waste it on their new ‘class of slaves,’ the illegal aliens.  Second, here is the Cost This Year of caring for the illegal alien pests flooding into the country: $218,666,975,232.  Let us ask our black fellow Americans a question: WOULD you rather see this money distributed to you as reparations for slavery or would you rather it go to people who have no business being here, people who take YOUR jobs, drive up the costs of rents, mortgages, groceries, and who clog YOUR schools and hospitals?   Think about it and let us know.  Third, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals who have flooded the United States just this year: 2,241,161.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the numbers of illegals clogging the shadows of the country: 36,241,160.  (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).  Folks, it is interesting to note that the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day said back in 2009 when we wrote for Choseit.com that the numbers of illegal aliens then were between 35-50 million.  After our move to Google Blogger in late 2010, we continued with this number whereas now, we believe that the TRUE number of illegal aliens in this country now rests at between 75-100 million.  Time for someone to begin handing out illegal alien hunting licenses…
  75. 2021 Monday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Scott L. Fitzgerald, R-WI 5th congressional district, says that control of the border will weaken even more sans the Title 42 protections that allow the U.S. government to reject illegal aliens consumed by disease.   In other troubling illegal alien news, Tucker Carlson reported on his show- Tucker Carlson Tonight- that while the Democrats continue seeding illegal aliens across the interior of the United States using military airfields as their way stations, the Republicans either tacitly approve of the actions or remain mum.  This is not good and it must stop.  Chef Lilah on Maui has reported that a family member who works in Honolulu at the airport reports that twice a month, airliners come in, dump illegal alien brats on the tarmac who are then redistributed around the islands.  Not good.
  76. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As the Cuban people continue demanding freedom from the communist tyranny under which they have suffered for 62 years, dingbats like Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, the one they call “AOC,” continue to support the communist regime.   Meanwhile, Canada says it will ‘open the border to U.S. citizens next month who can prove they have been vaccinated.’  Big whoop.   Elsewhere, in Japan, a court handed down prison sentences to the father and son team who enabled Carlos Ghosn- big automobile CEO- to escape corruption charges against him.  The father, Michael Taylor, got two years in a Japanese slammer while the son- Peter- received 20 months. 
  77. 2021 Monday J: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Xi Jinping of the Chi-Coms warned Japan today that if the Japanese come to the aid of Taiwan- aka FREE CHINA- they will ‘nuke them off the face of the Earth.’  How nice.  Let’s launch a pre-emptive strike on not just the Chi-Coms but on the Russians, Iranians, Cubans, and Venezuelans.  Drooling Joe Biden, NUKE THEM NOW.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we learn today that their hackers- Red Patriots as they call them- openly advertise their capabilities on Chi-Com TV.  All the more reason to nuke these scumbags off the face of the planet.  Elsewhere, we learn today that Israeli spyware- Pegasus- is being used around the world to target journalists and activists. 
  78. 2021 Monday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the Biden regime continues floundering about trying to find ways to shame the American people into falling into step and getting the Yellow Flu vaccines that six months ago, they told us we would be fools to get, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control, is going to adopt Critical Race Theory (Criminal Race Theory in reality) rhetoric to try to shame the American people into getting this crap.  Look, the Biden regime is going to toss Title 42- the portion of the immigration laws that allows the U.S. to deny entry to sick illegal aliens- so if millions of untested and unvaccinated illegals can pour into the country, why the f**k should we rush out and get the vaccines?  Furthermore, anyone stupid enough to come to the door trying to give us the vaccine is either going to get an ass-whipping they won’t soon forget or is going to get shot.   (Note- our very own Chef Bea O’Malley, a woman of color, has said repeatedly that every time white liberals encourage black Americans to do something ‘for their own good,’ it never works out well for them so stop pushing the crap already).
  79. 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of the aforementioned Centers for Disease Control, a pediatrics group is openly contradicting CDC guidelines by saying ALL children and staff should wear masks in schools.   Along similar lines, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sheriff Alex Villanueva says he will NOT enforce the unscientific mandates recently slapped back on the people.’  Elsewhere, regarding the rising numbers of the Chi-Vi, two-thirds of Japan’s citizenry fear hosting the Summer Olympic Games as scheduled.   Meanwhile, a British health official reports that 40-PERCENT of serious cases of the Wuhan Flu that end up in the hospital are people who have been fully vaccinated.   So reported Tucker Carlson tonight.
  80. 2021 Monday M: Health and Medical Alerts– Reimposed mask mandates send the wrong message on Chi-Com Dink-a-Link vaccines.   Elsewhere, now that the CDC has found a judge that allowed them to slap mask mandates back on the cruise line industry, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis vows to take the fight to end mask mandates on the cruise lines to the United States Supreme Court.  Excellent.
  81. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– After being blasted 24/7 over the weekend for his comments pertaining to Facebook KILLING people through the misinformation, they continue publishing on how great the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines are, the drooling Oval Office usurper is toning down his rhetoric.   (Note- the same maxim holds true here as it did when print media was honest and powerful: Joe, don’t pick fights with people or entities who buy ‘ink’ by the barrel meaning that Mark “F**k” Zuckerberg, his allies Jack “Dingleberry” Dorsey at Twitter and other BIG TECH connivers can do you immense harm just as they did President Donald J. Trump.
  82. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Joe Biden regime is transferring the first Gitmo detainee out of the POW camp to Morocco.  How about we plant a tracking chip in the scumbag and then ‘drone him?’  Meanwhile, the Biden regime vows that the Department of Justice will contest the recent federal court ruling that tossed out the unconstitutional DACA program.  Go for it.  We hope every DACA recipient is rounded up, imprisoned, and then when transport becomes available, they are dumped back into Central America or from wherever else they might have come.
  83. 2021 Monday P: Political News I– Besides costing Democratic-Socialists $1.5 million for their run to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., last week so as to avoid doing their duty in the Lone Star State, the Democrats who left Texas also took at least FIVE cases of the Chinese Virus with them to the District of Columbia thus making it a ‘super-spreader event.’  They are no different than ‘Covid Corey’ who gave the Chi-Vi to all the fruits on Fire Island last summer.  Shame on YOU.  Next, as the Democratic-Socialists continue trying to re-jigger last year’s 2020 Elections results, a new ‘study’ now says that polling institutes OVERESTIMATED support for BOTH Republicans and President Donald J. Trump so as to justify that ‘he didn’t win’ which is bullshit. 
  84. 2021 Monday Q: Political News II– Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large congressional district, says that the ‘Dems are out to control voting in the United States via the infrastructure bill.’  Remember, the ONLY way the Democrats were able to push through Obamacare was by attaching to a budget bill that had already passed.  Otherwise, that crap bill would NEVER have passed.  The Dems are trying to do it again via budget reconciliation.   Senator Amy “The Schnoz” Klobuchar- failed Democratic-Socialist presidential candidate from Minnesota- says that ‘voting is indeed part of infrastructure.’  NOT the way you envision it, “Schnoz.”
  85. 2021 Monday R: Political News III– Liberal groups are trying to target Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, in 2022 by re-jiggering statements he made about January 06, 2021, i.e., the FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS carried out by the Democratic-Socialists under the command of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Speaking of the ‘Capitol Hill Riots’ of that ill-fated day back in January, the Capitol Hill Police hired a new chief today, one who will be subservient to Massa Nancy.  In other related news, one of the first ‘Capitol Hill Riots’ rioters just received an 8-month sentence in a D.C. slammer for having made it inside the Capitol Building on that brisk January day.   Finally, in other political news, Rep. Brendan Boyle, DS-PA 2nd congressional district, introduced a resolution that would prohibit President Donald J. Trump from becoming speaker of the House.
  86. 2021 Monday S: Political News IV– Tucker Carlson reported this evening that a Department of Justice presentation obtained by Fox News Channel has identified the THREE MAJOR CAUSES of inner-city violence.  What he found surprised the hell out of us just as it will you: the three causes of inner-city shootings and killings are (1) WHITE SUPREMACISM (2) RACISM and (3) THE COPS.  Wow.  Very Orwellian if you ask us.  In other political news, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, has named FIVE Republicans to the House Select Committee on the ’causes’ behind the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, i.e., the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY: (1) Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district and ranking member; (2) Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district; (3) Rep. Rodney Davis, R-IL 13th congressional district; (4) Rep. Kelly Armstrong, R-ND At-Large congressional district; and (5) Rep. Troy Nehls, R-TX 22nd congressional district.   (Note- it appears that Leader McCarthy lacked the balls to put Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, and/or Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, on the committee.  We know what we’ll get.
  87. 2021 Monday T: Business News– After OPEC and their allies agreed to increase production, global oil prices began to fall.   Elsewhere, art critic Sebastian Smee recently said of Hunter Biden’s artworks that the crap is ‘not worth more than $1,000.’  Hunter should go on the Starving Artists tour.  In other business news, Delaware just guaranteed the loss of jobs by raising the state’s minimum wage to $15 per hour. 
  88. 2021 Monday U:  Economic News– As fears of new Chi-Vi eruptions around the country continue to grow, the stock market took another massive slide today mirroring last week’s massive losses on Friday.  We predicted back in January that by late summer/early fall, the markets would be in the tank.  Whether or not this happens, we stand with what we said.   In other fascinating news, freedom-fighter journalist Glen Greenwald says that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is raking in millions on companies SHE regulates through Congress.  Wow.  And they were angry at the Reddit users making a killing off GameStop stocks.   Finally, a new poll says that 88-percent of the American people are growing increasingly concerned over the rising cost of living.
  89. 2021 Monday V: Big Tech News– Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says that Democrats and Big Tech are working hard at creating a symbiotic relationship between Democratic-Socialists and BIG TECH.  The Democrats genuinely want to bring George Orwell’s “1984” to life.  Elsewhere, Gettr has President Donald J. Trump’s old Twitter handle ‘in the safe.’
  90. 2021 Monday W: War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– NATO issued a forceful statement today encouraging the Taliban to stop running amok in Afghanistan as Western forces continue withdrawing combat forces.  (Note- we are sure the Taliban is listening to your warnings).  Retired U.S. Army General (and former CIA director) David Petraeus says that ‘the U.S. will come to regret the way in which it left Afghanistan.’  Once out, the U.S. cannot return.  (We hope the Chi-Coms fill the void and we hope the SOBs get sucked into a malevolent maelstrom of endless war.  We cannot see the Taliban allying with godless Chi-Coms who keep millions of fellow Muslims in slave labor camps).
  91. 2021 Monday X: U.S. Senate News I– U.S. Senate Democrats propose adding women to help draft laws.  What?  It’s 2021 and this has yet to happen.  Meanwhile, Senate Republicans warn Senate ‘Majority Leader’ “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer about the onrushing deadline to get something legitimate accomplished on the so-called ‘infrastructure bill.’
  92. 2021 Monday Y: Fake News I– It was fun watching author Michael Wolff- a great writer of FICTION- lambaste Brian “The Eunuch” Stelter as a proprietor of fake news.  What he said was that CNN presents itself as ‘virtuous news’ when in fact they are fake news.  Stelter was stunned and criticized Wolff for eagerly coming on the channel to share his views to which, Mr. Wolff said, ‘he does so to sell books.’  Hilarious.   Speaking of CNN, they announced that they are going to launch a new subscription streaming service as Fox News Channel has sometime in 2022.  Wow.  Can’t wait.
  93. 2021 Monday Z: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Fashion magazine Marie Claire says that media should show more parents getting abortions.  Sick f**ks
  94. 2022 Tuesday: Will today be the day that Joe Biden trundles off to the rest home and his despicable wife, ‘Dr. Jill’ Biden goes to prison for elder abuse?  Let’s hope so.  Here is another thought- those of us who live under the despotic rule of Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom cannot wait to see the ads that “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis will drop on our bozo chief executive come late October.  Gov. Newsom is such a worthless POS that he deserves ridicule and derision from everyone.  The man is so flipping stupid not to comprehend that he is a target-rich environment when it comes being trolled.  It’s going to be fun.  Chef E.C. McCardle.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final original recording by Beach Boy Carl Wilson- “Like a Brother”- came out on March 15, 2000, two years after his death from lung cancer.  Over the years- interesting fact- the Beach Boys joined bands like the Grateful Dead (you can find these bootleg albums and foreign releases by going to RZ Record) and Chicago where the groups united to deliver joint sets, all of which were phenomenal.  In this case, work on the album began in 1992 and ended in 1997 and features collaborations between Carl and Robert Lamm (Chicago) and Gerry Beckley (America) joined by a load of talented musicians with which to create the aura surrounding this album.  There are 10 tunes here (13 on a Japanese re-release from 2001) which are amazingly delightful melding of the styles of three great bands and three glorious artists, all in synch with one another.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite haunt for music and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure; we think you will be glad that you did.  Enjoy.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 975 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 754 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 34,919 confirmed cases, 1,352 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.

[i] Little would President Thomas Jefferson ever know about 190 some years later, American communists in Black Lives Matter and Antifa and other left-wing, Democrat-funded group would revile this brave founding father and American leader as an EVIL SLAVEOWNER to which we say, “F**K THEM!”  We cannot judge people of the past by those of today.  We must stop the vile communists, well-funded by George Soros, Beijing, and other leftist POS from destroying the nation’s heritage, both good and bad.  We here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM will fight tooth and nail to protect the United States and all its history.

[ii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening enjoyment.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Canned Heat on Sunday, 05-June-2011 through Sunday, 17-July-2011.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[iv] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[v] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time we did so- in the earliest days of our second blog- we overlooked all of the individual solo efforts by everyone, ranging from Jeremy Spencer, Danny Kirwan, Peter Green, Bob Welch, to Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, and Lindsey Buckingham.  We hope to rectify that fledgling error by doing an updated presentation sometime in the future.  Please stay tuned.

[vi] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of the Beach Boys and the group’s individual members- Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson as well as Alan Jardine, Mike Love, Bruce Johnson, and other members- at some point.  It will be a lengthy presentation rivaling if not surpassing the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Who, and Genesis.

[viii] 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 and the Plastic Ono Band.

[ix] When we do the music of Nirvana, we will be doing the music of Foo Fighters, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Hole, and Smashing Pumpkins.  Stick around as that is going to be gloriously fun.

[x] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.  When we do, we will do our best to include the music of various collaborations and spin-offs from the group, seeing as how every member was extremely talented. 

[xi] To which, we say, “F**K the Democrats, stop the crying, shut your mouths, you insolent unpatriotic POS.

Steve Scalise, R-LA, was shot by a Bernie Sanders’ whacked out supporter, the victorious Democrats in a show of sympathy lend the trophy to the GOP until the Louisiana Republican makes a full recovery.
  61. 2018 Friday: Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort underwent jailing to await two criminal trials; a federal judge revoked his house arrest over phony allegations of witness tampering in special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s phony investigation into purported “Trump-Russia collusion,” something the special counsel failed to find or to prove beyond a reasonable doubt.  Sadly, Manafort received seven years in prison on federal charges.  The poor man is a political prisoner, punished by the Democrats because he helped Donald Trump win the presidency.
  62. 2019 Saturday: The sports memorabilia world lights its hair on fire as a baseball jersey belonging to the world’s greatest Babe Ruth brings in a record $5.64 million at auction in New York City.  Stunning!  Elsewhere, Chi-Com stooge Carrie Lam- chief executive of Hong Kong- announces the suspension of the new extradition law that would send FREE Hong Kongens to mainland China for trial.  The protests have ground Beijing’s rule of the former British crown colony into the dust.  (Note- several months later, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu would arrive that would help Xi Jinping kill two birds with one stone- Hong Kong freedom fighters and U.S. President Donald J. Trump.  F**king diabolical).
  63. 2020 Monday: Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone warlord RAZ changed the name of the new utopic socialized crap hole from CHAZ to CHOP: Capitol Hill Organized Protest.  There, people tremble in fear that they might be beaten and/or evicted at any time while Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkin, CPUSA-WA, pays it little mind and Gov. Jay Inslee- a loser if one ever existed- acts as though he knows nothing about it, a la Sergeant Schultz.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr make it known that the pending ‘tell-all’ book by John “Perpetual War” Bolton in which, he attacks his former boss, the current president, has not gone through the normal processes and could be in violation of long-standing federal policy.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds civil rights for homosexuals.  It is what it is.  Finally, President Trump informed the world that he is moving ahead with his planned Oklahoma City rally this upcoming Saturday, June 20, 2020.  The left is wailing, gnashing its teeth but the commander-in-chief is correct when he says, ‘all the fears of the Chinese bat flu went out the window when people were out in the streets rioting over the death of George Floyd but oh, no, Trump can’t hold any rallies because we must not take the chance of getting the Wuhan Virus.  Oh, please.  Here is the deal: 800,000 people have sought tickets to the 20,000-seat arena.  Period.  Joe Biden cannot match that.  
  64. 2020 Monday A: Speaking of the Chinese Bat Virus, the one comrade Xi dispatched to the rest of the world, here are today’s stats, world first: 7,965,453 confirmed cases, 434,432 confirmed deaths, and 3,809,566 confirmed recoveries.   Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,148,380 confirmed cases, 117,700 confirmed deaths, and 662,226 confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are today’s stats, Golden State first: 151,452 confirmed cases, 5,089 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the numbers: 728 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 629 confirmed recoveries.  Finally in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 26,067 confirmed cases, 1,220 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

  66. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 297,795 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 161,854 deaths  
  67. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,804,748 confirmed cases, 63,203 confirmed deaths, and 2,065,912 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,351,726 confirmed cases, 37,393 confirmed deaths, and 2,124,674 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,067 confirmed cases, 506 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 447,658 confirmed cases, 5,840 confirmed deaths (DOWN), and 220,096 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Arkansas: they have 344,067 confirmed cases, 5,863 confirmed deaths, and 336,107 confirmed recoveries. [ix]   
  68. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,690 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,029 confirmed recoveries (SAME NUMBERS).   Let’s look at one other country-  Angola, 117th country on the list: 36,921 cases of the virus, 842 confirmed deaths and 30,775 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  69. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,299.33, DOWN 94.42 points (-0.27%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,072.86, DOWN 101.29 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,246.59, DOWN -8.56 points (-0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.65 per barrel, +0.52 (+0.73%).  The price of GOLD is $1,856.90 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $27.77 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.22%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,153.90 per troy oz, +5.30 (+0.46%) while the price of COPPER is $4.35 per pound, +0.02 (+0.50%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,767.93 per troy oz, +5.30 (+0.19%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $22,800.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+2.24%).

[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.40 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.03.     In Lesotho Loti, one greenback equals 13.76 and in Liberian Dollar, a buck equals 107.60 and in Libyan Dinar, one dollar equals 4.46 of theirs.[xiv]        
  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.226 per gallon, $2.966 in Florida, $3.972 in Hawaii, and $3.621 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Michigan: $3.162.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Zambia: $3.673 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,410,267,967,104 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Cayman Islands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xviii]
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 84 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘sofa,’ to be in charge of the border and to continue being a no-show.  How is it this woman still maintains this ‘job’ much less continues to serve as the faux vice president of the United States.  Hurry up with the election audits so we can boot this woman who schlepped her way to the top along with her boss out of office.  Enough is enough.  Speaking of “Kooky Kamala,” Democrats and Republicans alike are blasting her for taking selfies at a South Carolina vaccination center when she should be down at the border halting the tidal wave of illegal aliens from the Third World.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News releases the latest updates as to ILLEGAL ALIENS DATA.  First, the cost of caring for all these Untermensch as of today is $533,130,528.  Second, the cost so far this year of handling the illegal alien tsunami for 2021 is $181,355,085,824.  Third, the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year is 1,858,744 while fourth, the total number of illegal aliens estimated to be in the U.S. is 35,858,744.  Since the inception of our original blog site back in 2009, we have speculated that the number of illegals back then was anywhere between 35-to-50 million.  Now, we believe the number is closer to 75-to-100 million.  Let’s begin rounding them up, inserting microchips next to their hearts, and then booting them out of the country as quickly as possible.  We need Donald Trump to come back NOW.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In advance of the ‘Joe Biden’-Vladimir Putin summit tomorrow, Joe Biden says that he is going to ‘warn’ Putin in a conversation that could last up to five hours (which is bull crap- no way Joe can do it.  However, we expect that once in the room with their interpreters, Putin actually will be discussing issues with Joe Biden’s earpiece which most likely contains the voice of former regime leader Barack Hussein Obama).   Ahead of their summit, Putin says that Joe has much for which to answer when it comes as to WHY more than 450 people are languishing in D.C. lockups for their part in January 06, 2021, and WHY Ashli Babbitt was shot dead by a police officer.  In essence, what Putin is saying, is ‘look in the mirror at yourselves before you begin pointing the finger at us.’  (Note- we expect some issue will arise that will cancel the Obama-Putin Summit so Joe does not embarrass himself and our country.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II–  News arose today that suggests that Vladimir Putin will soon be annexing Belarus to the new Russian empire just as they continue applying pressure upon the Baltic states of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania and continue their war of aggression against Ukraine.  Meanwhile, patriotic Israelis stage a massive march through East Jerusalem as the new liberal government sends out legions of police to keep the ‘radicals’ in line.  These people are NOT radicals and Jerusalem- ALL OF IT- belongs to the Israeli people because God gave them the land more than 3,00 years ago in a covenant between Yahweh and His Chosen People.  March every day!  Regarding Israel, the Israeli Air Force had to strike some targets in Gaza after the criminal Palestinians launched a barrage of incendiary balloons across the border into Israel.  The Israeli fire authorities report the bottom-feeding rabble in Gaza ignited at least 20 fires.  Light ‘em up, Israel, light ‘em up.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Foreign News / Overseas News III-Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms sent 28 warplanes- including nuclear-capable bombers and fighters- into Taiwanese airspace in the largest show of force to date.  We hope Taiwan continues beefing up its defenses because in the coming war between the forces of the modern-day Chi-Com Nazis and the freedom-loving people of Free China- Taiwan- there is but one place to stand: on the side of free people.  We should have nuked the Chi-Coms back in 1950.  (Note- communist China expert Gordon Chang says Beijing’s military exercises are no ‘coincidence’).  Finally, Israeli ex-Prime Minister Ehud Olmert says that ‘ignorant’ Ilhan Omar is ‘not worthy’ to be in Congress.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– New evidence continues to arise that shows what most Americans already know: COVID-19 was already in the U.S. by Christmas 2019.  (Note- the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges took care of one another’s problems: COVID-19 allowed the Chi-Coms to end the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong while the disease allowed the Democrats to get rid of President Donald J. Trump and to vilify his supporters by setting the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, into action.   In so doing, it permitted both to get rid of their enemies and to allow each one to cover for the other.  The capstone is that Vladimir Putin can now lambaste drooling Joe Biden for keeping the people locked up while hiding the identity of the cop who shot Ashli Babbitt.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II-In other Chi-Vi-related news, former CDC Director Robert Redfield says that the ‘arrogance’ of the Chi-Com scientists may have led to the disaster of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic destabilizing the world.  Finally, thanks to Red State’s brave reporting, we continue learning the truth that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic was indeed cooked up like methamphetamine in the Wuhan Institute of Virology for use as a biowarfare weapons.  If their stats are correct, the reason the Chi-Coms’ numbers are so low is that they were prepared for it in advance.
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– President Donald J. Trump continues ramping up pressure on the Keystone State to conduct an Arizona-style 2020 Election audit.
  79. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– GOP lawmakers seek to defund schools using the bogus and racist 1619 Project in its educational regimen.  Good.  In other news, Robert Bork Jr. says that ‘his father would be appalled that ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden is president.  Of course when Biden was on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, he eviscerated Bork’s father who was up for a SCOTUS nomination.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo launches a new PAC with which to help worthy candidates in the fight to reclaim the U.S. House and Senate in 2022.  Moving on, it’s official: the GOP have introduced a bill to fire Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci for his mishandling of the COVID-19 crisis as well as his potential enrichment from his mistakes.
  80. 2021 Tuesday O: Business News– Wall Street ends DOWN over investor fears in anticipation of the coming report from the Federal Reserve.  In other business news, Southwest Airlines has had to cancel more than 1,000 flights due to technical issues but we think they were ‘hacked.’  Everyone else is so why not them?
  81. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas returns from a trip to Mexico.  We suspect he went there to clean up the mess made by ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris who takes nothing seriously but laughs at everything like the yammering jackal she is.  In other news, ‘Joe Biden’s’ proposed budget is $6 trillion, which will drive the U.S. deficit to the moon.  The senile old fool’s handlers are going to drive taxes up on the American people.  This is insanity, it’s akin to King John crushing the people and Robin Hood fighting back on behalf of the people.  In other regime news, Joe Biden wants to spend $100 million ANNUALLY to combat domestic terrorism.
  82. 2021 Tuesday Q: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– While conducting a turtle-nesting study in Florida, researchers come across $1.2 million worth of cocaine.   Next, the U.S. Department of Justice seeks to reinstate the death penalty against Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  Elsewhere, a judge rules that Harvey Weinstein can be sent to California to face a rape charge in the Golden State.
  83. 2021 Tuesday R: National Security News– Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel show that government documents reveal that there were numerous FBI agents involved in the events of January 06, 2021, ‘unindicted co-conspirators’ who helped organize the protests that day and then participated in leading them into the Capitol Building.  We have said countless times that what happened on January 06, 2021, was the largest FALSE FLAG OPERATION carried out in the history of our country so as to bring down President Donald J. Trump, vilify his supporters, and then to place a Chi-Com-backed stooge into the White House.  This only reinforces what we believe and what we have been saying for months now.
  84. 2021 Tuesday S: Big Tech News– “Little Mark” Zuckerberg made one of the biggest (and stupidest) mistakes of his life when he tried to buy rights to Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2” for an undisclosed massive amount of money.  Roger Waters, creative fire behind the British band and writer of most of its songs said, ‘there is no F***ing way I am going to allow a F***ing POS like Zuckerberg to use MY song so he can brainwash young people.’  A supporter of Julian Assange, Waters the song was as important back then as it is now especially since Facebook is rapidly becoming a Big Brother-like entity spying on people around the globe, sucking up their data, and then doing its damnedest to control their minds.  God bless you, Roger; it’s good to know patriots and freedom fighters still exist.  As for Zuck, well, he can go F*** himself in the ass.
  85. 2021 Tuesday T: Religion News– U.S. Roman Catholic bishops are meeting to discuss the denying of communion to Pro-Death politicians.  The Holy Father Pope Francis ordered them NOT to deny communion to the abortion-loving, Marxist Democrats because in our view, Francis is a Marxist, too, and unfit to lead the church.  We hope the bishops excommunicate ALL Pro-Death politicians from the church.  Let them languish in Limbo.
  86. 2021 Tuesday U: Health and Medical Alerts– A new study reports that for about one-quarter of all survivors of the Chi-Vi, they develop other, much more chronic issues down the road.  The Chi-Coms claim their pandemic did not originate in their biowarfare program but folks, every scrap of news we hear connected to the ‘VID tells us one thing and one thing only: the Chi-Coms cooked this crap up and then infected the rest of the world.   E-V-I-L.
  87. 2021 Tuesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, she with the lopsided breasts, says that the House will proceed with its ‘investigation’ into the (FALSE FLAG OPERATION) of January 06, 2021.  As we all recall, the crowd of peaceful Trump supporters was infiltrated by Antifa thugs and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter.  The rest as they say is ‘history.’  In other House news, loser Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district says that has unlimited power to spy on the American people and to seize any records he so desires even as he raises a stink about the Bill Barr DOJ’s subpoenas for phone records belonging to Democrat lawmakers.  Moving on, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is pushing ‘Mumbles” Pelosi to strip Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MI 5th congressional district, of her seat on the House Intel Committee because of her hatred of Israel and her love of all things ‘jihad.’
  88. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate confirmed Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to take the seat of now-Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.  A likely future nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court- should “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden stick around long enough to get to nominate a pick- Jackson was confirmed by a vote of 53-44.  In other U.S. Senate news, Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, says that ‘Joe Biden’s nominee to head the Bureau of Land Management- Tracy Stone-Manning- should be booted over her support or involvement in past acts of eco-terrorism.  The Democrats NEVER possess a scrap of shame for their crazed, left-wing, Marxist actions.  Shame.  Elsewhere, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says ‘U.S. servicemembers are complaining about the overly WOKE Pentagon’s policies.’  Amen.  As they should… He is also concerned that the Chi-Coms will be harvesting the DNA of Olympians at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.  Finally, the Senate Judiciary Committee is debating the House Bill H.R. 6 that will grant amnesty and citizenship to 3 million frigging illegal aliens without determining whether there are thugs and rapists among them.  (Note- the Democrats truly hate the people they lead).
  89. 2021 Tuesday X: U.S. Senate News II– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY, says that there must be grave consequences for the purposeful leaking of a person’s tax records.  Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” he says there is NO WAY that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden will get someone onto the U.S. Supreme Court in 2024.  Another denizen of the U.S. Senate, Senator “Cho-Mo Bob” Menendez, DS-NJ, says that ‘Joe Biden must treat Vladimir Putin like the ‘killer’ he is.  Good for you, Bob, good for you.  Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘the Biden regime’s blanket amnesty covers dangerous criminals, too.’
  90. 2021 Tuesday Y: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump names Liz Harrington as his new spokesperson as Jason Miller is taking over as the CEO of a new tech start-up company.  The company owns one of the social media platforms the 45th president is considering appropriating with which to get his message out to the American people and his supporters around the world.
  91. 2021 Tuesday Z: Economic News– A new Trafalgar poll says that MORE Americans blame ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden than they do President Donald J. Trump for the rising inflation now afflicting the country.
  92. 2021 Tuesday AA: Environmental News I– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows calls the G7 Summit’s agreement on ‘climate change actions’ a terrible deal.
  93. 2021 Tuesday BB: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, sends a powerful message to the laughing hyena ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris when he tells her the ‘border crisis is no laughing matter.’  The Lone Star State’s governor is going to seek contributions so that his state can continue building the wall to halt the ongoing flow of millions of ravenous illegal aliens roaring over the Southwest frontier like a cloud of locusts.  The state is also encouraging all states who can spare law enforcement officers to send them to Texas to help guard the frontier.  Governor Abbott- where can we send the checks?  (Note- all the cops run out of cities that won’t support them will be heading to Texas and Arizona, we suspect).  However, a government watchdog says, ‘Joe Biden’s halt of wall construction does not violate U.S. law.’ Speaking of Governor Abbott, President Donald J. Trump has accepted his invitation to tour the southern border with him and other officials on the last Wednesday at the end of the month.
  94. 2021 Tuesday CC: Observation of the Day– IF the United States was filled with as many WHITE SUPREMACISTS as Democrats claim, don’t you think it strange that during the eight years of the ‘first black president,’ no one- especially NO WHITE PERSON- ever tried to assassinate him?  The Secret Service isn’t that good.  However, had someone tried- or worse- had the Democrats conducted a FALSE FLAG OPERATION whereby they picked some random loser and had him or her make an attempt on the life of the 44th president, can you imagine the political bludgeoning they could have carried out on ‘white males?’  We will say this: it should be clear that true political violence is no longer a problem in this country whereas mob violence at street level is.  But in a nation that saw Presidents Abraham Lincoln, James A. Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy shot dead as well as two attempts on the life on President Gerald R. Ford and the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan, no attempt on the life of an American president has occurred in 41 years.  In the last century, we saw the assassinations of Senator Robert F. Kennedy as well as that of famed civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. but no attempts on three highly popular/unpopular presidents depending upon whom you ask- George W. Bush, Barack Hussein Obama, and Donald J. Trump- since the turn of the century tells us one thing.  Much of the violence we see is ginned up by the left and what’s clear is, we believe that the left was trying to gin up someone among their ranks to do the unthinkable to President Trump yet were unable to find a fall guy or worse- coerce a patsy- into carrying out their loony-tunes agenda of vilification followed by violence.  No, we say, ‘WHITE SUPREMACISM’ no longer is around but there sure is a whole lotta ‘BLACK SUPREMACISM’ afflicting our country like cancer gobbling away at one’s privates.  Let’s do something to end this stupidity.   Democrats, can we set RACE ATTACKS aside?  This is going to destroy our country and even worse, you pathetic bottom-feeding scumbags know it and yet you persist.  Let me know what you think.  Thank you- Chef Vicky.
  95. 2021 Tuesday DD: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1668 with a $30 million pot on the line.  18, 22, 27, 38, 52, and Mega 11.  Out of 50,948 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 35 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $383 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

  76. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.202 per gallon, $2.861 in Florida, $3.928 in Hawaii, and $3.577 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- U.S. Connecticut: $3.070.  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- Trinidad and Tobago: $3.214 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,355,756,332,048 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  77. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– By our count, today is Day #71 for “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be ‘Border Czar,’ a ‘no-show job’ for which, she receives a paycheck.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ a new report says that when the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece told him to appoint her to head this prestigious, national security job, her aides were in a state of panic not knowing what any of them were to do.  A bunch of flipping hacks.[xvi]  Anyhow, “Methuselah Joe” Biden is pushing Congress to get him a bill on his desk that he can sign that will LEGALIZE 11 million illegal aliens.[xvii]
  78. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is in Israel with two other U.S. senators and is pushing for $1 billion U.S. dollars with which to beef up Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.  Amen.   Elsewhere, Chi-Com state media says the nation MUST prepare for nuclear war with the United States after a mumbling, stumbling, bumbling Joe Biden orders an investigation into the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Wow.  Chi-Coms want war.  Meanwhile, NATO warplanes took to the airspace over member nations as a show of force to Vladimir Putin’s increasingly hostile Russia.
  79. 2021 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– It has been decided that COVID-19 variants will be given Greek letters rather than the name of the country in which they pop up.  Guess we don’t want to hurt the feelings of places like the People’s Republic of China, South Africa, Vietnam, and India.  Folks, it is what it is.  Next, a recent poll says that 60-percent of the American people oppose Chi-Vi passports for dining and that 55-percent oppose employers demanding proof of Bat Flu vaccinations.  We concur.   A recent TIPP poll reports that 55-percent of Americans believe the release of the ‘VID was NO accident while 44-percent believe that the Chi-Coms did indeed create this crap in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Elsewhere, Gordon Chang told Newsmax TV that ‘Joe Biden could conceal U.S. complicity in the origins of the Chi-Vi and subsequent spread when HIS report on the pandemic comes out.’  Finally, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, wants House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to launch an investigation into the Chinese Communist Party and the origins of the Wuhan Virus Crisis.
  80. 2021 Tuesday I: Health and Medical Alerts– Regarding the previous topic, the New York Knicks say that IF they advance in the playoffs, fans in the stands will HAVE TO PROVIDE evidence of vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Wow.  NO fans in the stands means NO money for your crappy team.  In other news- and this is BIG- the Chi-Coms have reported their FIRST human case of the H1ON3 bird flu.  Let’s see, this will be the NEW pandemic following hot on the heels of the Kung Flu which means- it will be running amok around the world by the time Americans go to vote in November 2022- and you believe the Chi-Coms are not malevolently evil.  (Note- the U.S. government says that from highest to lowest in rates of Chi-Com Meat Market Malady vaccinations, Asians come in first followed by whites followed by Hispanics and then blacks.  As Chef Bea O’Malley has said, ‘anytime white liberals tell us black folks to do something for our own good, we run like heck for the hills’).
  81. 2021 Tuesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– Fellow Democrats and critics worry that the Biden regime WON’T release President Donald J. Trump’s tax information when the ‘investigation into the 45th president concludes.’  Next, the Biden regime is suspending oil and natural gas leases in the Arctic Wildlife Preserve, leases created under President Donald J. Trump.   Elsewhere, in other disturbing news, the U.S. Pentagon has cleared the Chi-Coms’ largest drone manufacturer for use by, uh, U.S. forces?  WTF?
  82. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News I– The ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ fails to pass in the U.S. Senate.  Part of the bill setting up this so-called ‘commission’ labels everyone who was in Washington, D.C., that day as insurrectionists.[xviii]  Wow.  Next, left-wing losers are claiming the General Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., called for a ‘coup’ against the U.S. government, an accusation he says is ‘bulls**t.’  Amen.  In other Political News, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, appears in an RNC advertisement slamming the policies of decrepit old Joe Biden.   Elsewhere, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says, “Not here, not now” with the defense of the Girls’ Sports Fairness Law which prohibits trannys,  i.e., chicks with dicks from corrupting girls’ and women’s sports teams.  Transgender-lovers are suing the Sunshine State to overturn this excellent law.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump endorses Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, for another term.
  83. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News II– Joe Biden went to Tulsa, Oklahoma, to pander to black folks on the 100-year anniversary of the Tulsa Race Riots and Massacre.  Joe claimed in 100 years that ‘no American president has ever come to Tulsa to commemorate this horrible time.’  Well, last year, President Donald J. Trump visited the city around the time of the 99th anniversary of the detestable event which sent the liberals berserk.  Former Executive Director Harrison Floyd for the Trump campaign’s outreach to black Americans pointed this fact out.  Of course, liberals won’t believe this.  Back to Joe Biden, when questioned as to whether survivors of the massacre should get some sort of reparations for what they suffered, Biden zipped his lips.  NO comment.  Finally, a bitter fight looms over the filibuster.
  84. 2021 Tuesday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– In a Montana dispute, the U.S. Supreme Court backs Native American tribal law in the state.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch rejected challenges to a Colorado disaster law used by state government to ban churches from being open.  Oh, well.  In other SCOTUS news, major rulings await over the last month of the current term.  We shall see.
  85. 2021 Tuesday N: Business News– Following the pullout of the Major League All-Star Game from Atlanta, Georgia, a conservative business group- Job Creators Network- is suing the league and the players’ union to prevent Colorado from hosting the annual game.  Elsewhere, Amazon.com is allowing the sale of EVIL Blue Lives Murder apparel which is reason enough to return to shopping locally.   Meanwhile, Americans’ travel spree reaffirms that it’s right for the markets to be BULLISH on oil and not on renewables.  Next, personal incomes tumbled by 13.1-percent in April 2021, the highest loss in more than two decades.  Who’s to blame, you ask?  Joe “Flipping” Biden and his corrupt policies of self-enrichment and corruption.  INFLATION!
  86. 2021 Tuesday O: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Former Officer Derek Chauvin of the Minneapolis Police Department is now facing federal charges.  It would appear that due to all sorts of shenanigans by activists who made it onto his jury that he might receive a NEW trial.  Thus, the feds want to put him in double jeopardy by charging him with civil rights violations.  My, my, my.  In other news, the July 2021 deadline for survivors of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, by Muslim jihadists to get help is fast approaching.  Elsewhere, two people were shot at a Los Angeles County firehouse by a fellow firefighter.  Details hopefully to come.
  87. 2021 Tuesday P: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– In yet another, near-daily disclosure that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom knows he is a goner, he has ordered state officials to create a TASK FORCE to look into the matter of providing reparations to the descendants of former slaves.  As everyone knows, California was on the side of the Union during the Civil War and slavery was not permitted in the Golden State.  Governor “Nazi” Newsom—you are going down, you worthless, conniving, closet homo loser come November 2021.  Going to be amazing to see you take the boot up your scrawny little ass.   In other news, former President Barack Hussein Obama admitted to the New York Times that with feeble old Joe Biden hiring his staff, he is the one calling the shots.  Finally- and we don’t believe this story- Arizona says it plans to use Zyklon-B gas with which to execute death row inmates.  Say, wasn’t this the exact same gas employed by the Nazis in the death camps?  Hence why we think this is a bogus story.
  88. 2021 Tuesday Q: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– A BIG ROUND of applause for New York State Attorney General Leticia James- Josef Stalin and Lavrentiy Beria would be extremely proud of this communist POS who has launched a criminal probe into the Trump Organization.  “Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime” said KGB thug Lavrentiy Beria.  What a banana republic-style circus.   We hope you go deep in the running for this year’s award…
  89. 2021 Tuesday R: Religion News– Pope Francis criminalizes sexual abuse of adults by priests.  Seems like this SHOULD ALWAYS have been a crime.
  90. 2021 Tuesday S: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Space debris slammed into the International Space Station and damaged its robotic arm.  (Note- seems like it would be great if we could re-establish the space shuttle program and outfit one of them with massive nets that could begin scooping up all this crap and then either returning it to Earth for destruction or dropping it onto the moon for safekeeping).
  91. 2021 Tuesday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– here are the results for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1664 with a $34 million jackpot on the line: 07, 11, 33, 58, 63, and Mega 23.  Out of 47,494 winning tickets, the highest numbers were 39 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $377 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday U: Special Election News– Melanie Stansbury won the New Mexico Special Election to fill the seat of now-Interior Secretary Debra Haaland.  She will represent New Mexico’s 1st congressional district until November of next year, thus preserving “Mumbles” Pelosi’s margin of 219-211.  Democrats are now out there creaming their panties believing this to be a bellwether of the upcoming 2022 Mid-Term Elections.
  93. 2022 Wednesday: Stick around and discover what the Chi-Coms and their stooge in the White House are up to today- should be good.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by the Beach Boys marked a distinct move into much more social consciousness that began on the preceding album.  The Beach Boys were touring college and university campuses, were all about conservation, the grandfather of today’s loony tunes ‘green movement.’  Beards were getting longer, hair well past the collars and what with the departure of Bruce Johnston- asked to leave because he would not grow a beard, embrace Transcendental Meditation- the band brought into South African musicians, BLACK MUSICIANS to complete the social consciousness move.  Thus, we have a new album, “Carl and the Passions- So Tough,” an album that came out on May 15, 1972.  The band now featured Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Blondie Chapin (guitars, vocals), and Ricky Fataar (drums and vocals- Dennis was having hand problems due to a major cut that prevented him from pounding the skins).  The album opens with the rocker, “You Need a Mess of Help to Stand Alone,” sung by Brian and Carl.  Next, “Here She Comes” sung by Ricky Fataar followed by “He Come Down” sung by Carl and Al followed by “Marcella,” sung by Carl and a damned good live tune.  Side two picks up with “Hold on Dear Brother” sung by Fataar.  Following that, we have “Make It Good” sung by Dennis and then, the lovely “All This Is That” sung by Al and Carl to the final tune, the strange, “Cuddle Up,” sung by Dennis.  Fans will note the distinct changes to the voice of Dennis which was becoming affected by tobacco and alcohol.  This is a great album- one we hope everyone will check out.  Back when it came out, the record company paired it with a reissue of “Pet Sounds,” back when vinyl was king.  You can still find it at select online sellers of fine music.  Enjoy.

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

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

[iii] 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 “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band” album appeared on Tuesday, 22-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[xvi] Speaking of “Kooky Kamala” Harris, Ric Grenell says ‘it’s a joke to think that Kamala Harris is ready to lead the country.’

[xvii] Note- when the voting audits are complete and the fraud a proven fact, every single act, appointment, and directive from the fraudulent Biden White House will be null and void.  Can you imagine when ICE and CBP are turned loose and begin rounding up and deporting the millions of illegal aliens roaming the American countryside?  Perhaps they will deputize millions of Americans to aid the Border Patrol in rounding up and loading aboard buses, trains, airplanes, and even onto freighters and sending this human flotsam and jetsam back to their rathole countries?  Going to be amazing.

[xviii] U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian leader of the Democratic-Socialist Party has ruled out Joe Biden creating her much-beloved January 06, 2021 ‘commission,’ the one by which the Dems can blame Trump supporters for the FALSE FLAG operations of Antifa and Black Lives Matter.

  61. 2008 Wednesday: After U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that during Jimmy Carter’s time as president, he was advised ‘NOT to have direct talks with the Islamic terrorist group Hamas,’ the failed president appears before news reporters and claims, “NOT true.”  This idiot would have talked with anyone, even those who hate both the United States and Israel.
  62. 2009 Thursday: The International Monetary Fund says it believes economic recovery will commence sometime in the next year.   Elsewhere, the Iraqi government believes that since President George W. Bush invaded their country in 2003, at least 110,000 of their citizens have been slain in the unnecessary war.  How sad.   Add to that the fact today, two suicide attacks, one in Baghdad and the other near Baquba, claim the lives of 87 people who weren’t yet ready to commune with Allah but went anyway.  
  63. 2010 Friday: As the U.S. and the United Nations place demands atop the Jewish state, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brushes off demands that it refrain from building new housing in its capital city of Jerusalem.  Meanwhile, the U.N. also is bitching that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing the global body from ‘educating the poor little Palestinian tykes.’  Wah, wah, wah.
  64. 2011 Saturday: Chi-Com police stage a raid on a Tibetan monastery in Sichuan killing at least two people and wounding several others.  Ah, religious freedom in a communist hellhole.  Elsewhere, in Syria, while people are staging funerals for loved ones killed in rioting, Syrian government security forces kill another dozen or so mourners.  There will be more funerals for them.
  65. 2012 Monday: The trial of former senator and vice-presidential candidate John Edwards for misuse of campaign funds gets underway in North Carolina.  Elsewhere, famed bassist Chris Ethridge who played with the Flying Burrito Brothers[xi] (1968-69 / 1974-76 / 1990-93)—among other bands—lost his battle with pancreatic carcinoma on this date.  He died in his hometown of Meridian, Mississippi, at the age of 65.  Next, the Iranians are angry because a malware attack has hammered the National Iranian Oil Company.  Sucks to be you.  Finally, the White House is launching an investigation into its advance staff in the wake of the U.S. Secret Service scandal.
  66. 2013 Tuesday: In France, an amended bill legalizing same-sex (homosexual) marriage is passed, opening the door for Francois Holland to promulgate it.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms float a flotilla of warships near Japan’s Senkaku Islands, Tokyo orders the Chi-Com ambassador to account for the actions of his countrymen.
  67. 2014 Wednesday: Facebook announces first-quarter profits of $642 million, an increase of nearly a factor of 3 over first-quarter profits in 2013, resulting in earnings of 25 cents per share versus the 17 cents per share expected by Wall Street.  Elsewhere, Ukrainian security officials discover that a Russian Orthodox Church in the eastern part of the country is a staging ground for Russian thugs attempting to terrorize that portion of the country.  That sounds like ‘Putin’ to us.  Obama, you must help these people against the Russian bear.  Plain.  Simple.  NOW.
  68. 2015 Thursday: On this date, Loretta Lynch wins confirmation in the U.S. Senate to succeed Eric Holder as the nation’s first attorney general.  She is the first African American female to hold this post.  Elsewhere, in one of the more tragic events in U.S. history, former General and former CIA Director David Petraeus pleads guilty in a federal court of sharing classified information with his biographer and lover.  The reason Petraeus found himself in this mess is because he REFUSED to back the Obama administration’s narrative on Benghazi.  The Bamster had knowledge of the victor of both Iraq and Afghanistan’s misdeeds and saved them, saved them for when he required them and when CIA Director Petraeus did not fall in line with the bogus narrative, word of the wrongdoing suddenly hit the news cycle. 
  69. 2016 Saturday: In what seems to be an annual thing, North Korea tells the United States that “IF you suspend military exercises with South Korea, maybe we’ll talk about nuclear disarmament.”  Elsewhere, German citizens in the city of Hanover are in the streets, protesting against President Barack Obama’s and the European Union’s proposed agreement, the Transatlantic Trade and Partnership deal, a deal akin to the Transpacific Partnership, which would tie the U.S. in with the Europeans.  However, the Germans aren’t having any of it and claim that if this ‘Obama deal’ becomes reality, jobs will be lost, wages will fall, environmental protections damaged, they are having none of it.
  70. 2017 Sunday: The North Korean news agency announces they scooped up an American citizen, Kim Sang-Duk, aka Tony Kim, as he sought to leave the country.  The bonehead was teaching classes at Pyongyang University, and we guess the North Koreans decided they wanted him to continue teaching longer than the man planned.  Yikes.   
  71. 2018 Monday: In North Korea, a major mishap occurs as a bus carrying a group of visiting Chi-Com tourists plunges off a highway in North Hwanghae, killing at least 32 of the visiting guests and four North Koreans.  Several others are injured and trucked off to an infirmary for treatment.  What the hell are the Chi-Coms doing visiting North Korea when they could have gone to Tibet or Xinjiang Province where they could tour the Muslim concentration camps? 
  72. 2019 Tuesday: In Myanmar, at least 52 jade miners die in a mudslide.  Meanwhile, in Malawi, the World Health Organization begins inoculating young people with the world’s first malaria vaccine.  The vaccine provides only partial protection against the killer tropical disease, but any protection is better than NO protection.  Elsewhere, ISIS figuratively thumps its chest and takes credit for the Easter Sunday bombings in Sri Lanka this past weekend.  Time to irradiate these murderous thugs.  
  73. 2020 Thursday:  The COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ continues taking lives, destroying economies, and being an over all pain in the ass for the entire planet.  Total confirmed cases for the globe sit at 2,699,338, confirmed deaths at 188,437, but confirmed recoveries sit at 737,735.  In the United States, there are 886,529 confirmed cases what with 50,162 confirmed deaths but 81,792 confirmed recoveries.  China continues claiming the same numbers what with 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  What a bunch of lying scum.  After the United States, the next nation with the most cases is Spain, then Italy, Germany, the United Kingdom, France, Turkey, and then communist China.  Meanwhile, the worst news for the United States is that another 4.4 million Americans are unemployed bringing the total number of unemployed Americans to 26 million.  This shocking statistic shows that every single job gained since 2008 is NOW GONE.  Time to exact a heavy price from the PRC by returning to a Two-China Policy recognizing Taiwan- aka Free or Nationalist China- as an equal nation if not the rightful owner of the mainland. 
  74. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 144,804,485 confirmed cases, +799,197, 3,073,868  confirmed deaths, +11,781, and 83,220,681 confirmed recoveries, +650,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,717,457 confirmed cases, UP 48,336 from yesterday’s reporting, 584,839 confirmed deaths, UP 10,421, (figures include today’s and yesterday’s)[xii] and 119,056,391 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[xiii] 
  75. 2021 Friday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 260,967 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  76. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,727,713 confirmed cases, 61,261 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,196,502 confirmed cases, 34,759 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,977 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Idaho, one of the few sane places left in the country: they have 186,081 confirmed cases, 2,029 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv]   
  77. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,892 confirmed cases, 6,346 confirmed deaths, and 829,424 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Ethiopia, one of the oldest Christian nations on the globe: 247,989 cases of the virus, 3,496 confirmed deaths and 185,107 confirmed recoveries.[xv]    
  78. 2021 Friday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,043.49, UP 227.59 points (+0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,016.81, UP 198.40 points (+1.44%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,180.17, UP 45.19 points (+1.09%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.04 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,776.70 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.05 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,232.00 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.08%).[xvi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,855.15 per troy oz, +18.52 (+0.65%).[xvii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xviii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 107.91 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71.[xix]  
  79. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.981 per gallon, $2.802 in Florida, $3.760 in Hawaii, and $3.401 in Washington state.[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $2.822.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,205,305,997,186 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  80. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Senators John Cornyn, R-TX, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, along with members of the House, presented the bicameral Bipartisan Border Solutions Act with which to tackle the ongoing BORDER CRISIS CAUSED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION’S INEPTITUDE would create- if passed- four regional border processing facilities so the Biden Regime would not be dumping illegal aliens into every neighborhood in every state as the regime is doing now.   Elsewhere, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, said that the illegal alien brats are in OBAMA-BIDEN CAGES and NOT Trump cages.  
  81. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden News I– Drooling Joe Biden found himself for being mocked as at his recent ‘climate summit’ with world leaders via ZOOM, he was the ONLY leader wearing a mask.  Ye gods, Joe, what the hell is wrong with you?  Dimwit.   Anyhow, when Joe concluded his summit, he said with gasping vigor, “We’re gonna do this.”  Big flipping deal, Joe.  Do it to yourself, NOT to us.  Next, totally whacked White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki crowed that ‘Joe Biden will be the first president to create 1,000,000 jobs in his first 100 days.’  Oh, please, stop it, we are laughing as hard as we can already.  Enough, dimwit!  Moving on, Joe Biden told Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdoğan that he is going to call ‘the Armenian massacre a GENOCIDE.’  As it was, the ARMENIAN GENOCIDE the Ottoman Turks carried out against the Christian Armenian minority in their country during World War I.  (Note- it would appear that via this action, Joe is pushing yet another dictatorial nation into the Chi-Com-Russian-Iranian-North Korean-Cuban-Venezuelan camp for good.  Good going there, Joe).
  82. 2021 Friday H: Energy News / Infrastructure News– Much to the horror of liberals, 73-percent of Americans recently polled believe that fossil fuels and natural gas will be with us for decades to come.  Yes, people are interested in renewable energy but until it becomes cost effective and dependable, no one wants this crap.[xxii]  Meanwhile, a new report says that a new proposed gasoline tax is meeting with resistance on BOTH sides of the political aisle.   After the GOP put forth a sensible and less costly infrastructure bill and the left slapped it down, Senator Johnson said it’s all ‘partisanship and not concern for the American people.’  Speaking of infrastructure, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., says that ‘Joe Biden should concentrate on CONVENTIONAL infrastructure’ and not this WOKE bulls**t.
  83. 2021 Friday I: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– Early today, Democrats began suing the state of Arizona for permitting the election integrity audit to begin and continue.  Later in the day, a judge called a temporary halt to the procedures for some inexplicable reason, but then permitted it to proceed late in the day.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that his team is advancing election integrity efforts across the country.  Elsewhere, New Hampshire passed SB 43 with which to carry out a forensic audit of the voting machines.  Citing the Windham Incident, in this one location, 1,143 ballots for Republicans were magically flipped over to Democrats.  These investigations are necessary.    
  84. 2021 Friday J: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, RINO, is slamming the inclusion of Iran- perhaps one of the greatest persecutors of women and girls- onto the U.N. Status of Women Commission.  What a load of feculent crap to put a scumbag nation such as Iran on a global body such as the one mentioned above.   Meanwhile, following Tony Perkins- of Family Research Council fame- calling for a boycott on the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics, the Chi-Coms now are trying to cancel him.  Permanently.    Elsewhere, Russian dissident Alexei Navalny is going to end his hunger strike.  Finally, Japan is declaring a state of emergency around Tokyo and three other areas due to surging numbers of COVID-19 cases.
  85. 2021 Friday K: Mass Shooting News / Law Enforcement News–  We learned that late last night in San  Diego, California, a mass shooting left one person dead and at least four injured.  We learned today that NBC once again rejiggered audio from the recent police shooting of Ma’ Khia Bryant who was in the act of stabbing another girl with an eight-inch blade.  As they did with George Zimmerman’s 911 call regarding Trayvon Martin, they edited and fabricated the police call so as to suit their narrative.  Folks, these lying scumbag networks should be fined and/or stripped of their broadcast licenses.   Meanwhile, Nicolas Cruz, the POS who shot up Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida back on February 14, 2018, in what we have dubbed the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018- could go on trial for his life as early as this September.  (Note- we thought he had already copped to a deal).   Elsewhere, an alternate juror in the murder trial of Derek Chauvin says ‘yes, indeed, the mob intimidate us into finding the way we did.’  This verdict is going to get tossed.  Count on it.
  86. 2021 Friday L: Social Media And Stupid People News– After that big POS Los Angeles Lakers dimwit LeBron “Fecal Matter” James put up his most recent tweet about the cop who shot violent teen Ma’ Kia Bryant in Columbus, Ohio, a few days ago, President Donald J. Trump says the turd should ‘focus on his NBA career rather than presiding over the destruction of the National Basketball League.’  LeBron James clearly learned nothing in school and worse, he is down on his knees in front of Xi Jinping doing the nasty for him every day.  C***sucker.  Speaking of LeBron and social media, millions are asking WHY Twitter banned President Donald J. Trump for ‘inciting violence’ while all the while permitting King James to make threats of his own via the platform?  Why?
  87. 2021 Friday M: COVID-19 News / Updates– Today, 33 colleges said that in order to return to classes in the next semester, ALL students will have to show proof they have been vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Virus.  In other Chi-Vi news, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton – with the help of Border Guru Stephen Miller- is suing the Biden administration over its hypocrisy of allowing in hundreds of thousands of illegals without testing them for the ‘VID while demanding states continue the bogus lockdowns the federal government imposes on them (if it can get away with doing it).  Moving on, the U.S. will now permit the use of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccinations to proceed.  However, this comes on the heels of the CDC investigation yet another woman’s death- someone in her fifties- following vaccination for the Chi-Vi.
  88. 2021 Friday N: U.S. Government News– Ahead of their planned pull out, U.S. military is packing up its military hardware in Afghanistan while leaving non-military supplies such as office equipment and appliances behind for the Taliban to put to effective use.   In other truly embarrassing news, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, a true milquetoast if one ever existed, is going to permit U.S. diplomatic missions abroad to fly the LGBTQIA+ flag at the same level with the U.S. flag around the world.  Gee whiz, paint another target on our backs, will you?  Meanwhile, the Biden White House is nominating a ‘conservationist’- Tracy Stone-Manning- to lead the Public Lands Bureau.  Another left-wing loser to be sure.  Finally, SpaceX Dragon capsule blasted off today carrying FOUR American astronauts to the International Space Station.
  89. 2021 Friday O: January 06, 2021, Storming The Capitol / Capitol Hill Riots / False Flag Operations News– It appears that Capitol Hill law enforcement has grown fatigued by lying Democrats’ narratives on what happened on that fateful day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrated the ranks of Trump supporters and then set in motion the largest FALSE FLAG operation seen in the history of our country.  They are pushing back on recent claims by unnamed Democrats that they showed ‘bias towards the Trump supporters.’  They say they did not.   Elsewhere, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is demanding a FULL ACCOUNTING of the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick, someone whom we just learned died from natural causes and did not- we repeat, did NOT- have his head bashed in with a fire extinguisher as liberal fake news media and Democrat politicians have long claimed.   Tell us the truth.
  90. 2021 Friday P: State News–  Florida’s Supreme Court stopped a bid with which to legalize marijuana in the Sunshine State.  Good.  We have enough stupid people already.   Elsewhere, in California, Caitlyn Jenner makes it official- she is running for the governor’s job in the recall of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and some like that overweight, wig-wearing Joy Behar on “The View” are upset.  She was so upset, she kept using the wrong pronouns when speaking of Ms. Jenner which in the liberal WOKE world is a major faux pas.  Yet, liberals routinely get away with NOT doing as they say everyone else should be doing.  What a farce.  Next, in New York City late last night/early this morning, did their best to deface a monument in Central Park, one built to commemorate the loss of 260 U.S. Navy sailors who were killed when the battleship USS Maine blew up in Havana Harbor, Cuba, on February 15, 1898, the main event that propelled the U.S. into war with Spain.  Police arrested some of the rioters, but we are sure they left the slammer within hours of their arrest.
  91. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new study on elected officials who are the child of elected officials says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, and Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, vote to the LEFT of their parents when they were in office.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, said he ‘endorses Senators Murkowski and her RINO buddy, Susan Collins, of Maine.   Next, survivors of the Steve Scalise shooting criticize yesterday’s findings by the FBI that James Hodgkinson who shot up the Republican team preparing for the annual House baseball game back on June 14, 2017, did so because he wanted to die by suicide by cop.  This was the FBI finding we received yesterday and all we can say is that FBI Director Christopher Wray is full of fecal matter.
  92. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Congressman Jason Smith, R-MO 8th congressional district, told Newsmax TV that New York state’s planned payments of $15,000 or more to illegal aliens is ‘unacceptable.’  It’s unacceptable when Americans need help, require salvation from all the Chi-Com Virus lockdowns and restrictions, and liberal left-wing government would rather care for INVADERS than for its own people.   Next, Kimberly Guilfoyle endorses former Missouri Governor Eric Greitens in his U.S. Senate bid.   Moving on, Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, vetoed a bill limiting gun restrictions.  He vetoed a bill that LIMITS restrictions on guns in the Natural State, for Christ’s Sake.   The man has demonstrated he is little more than a RINO.
  93. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Apparently, the President Trump 2020 Campaign left an unpaid view in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a $211,000 bill, one they are sending to collections.  Sounds like bull crap but then- we know how it is.  Speaking of President Trump, he may be leaving Florida to spend the summer at his New Jersey golf club.   Speaking of Florida, the okays a bill banning abortions based on disability.  Meanwhile, we learn that the United States Postal Service- the USPS, for Christ’s Holy Sake!- is now doing dirty work for the Biden regime by spying on conservative Americans.  Man, they must have amassed a humongous dossier on the AICPENDBLOG.COM by now.  What the hell is the postal service doing behaving like the Gestapo?  Has Stamps.com hurt them this much that they must take on jobs that have NOTHING to do with their daytime jobs?
  94. 2021 Friday T: Miscellaneous News I– After a violent summer last year in \Minneapolis, Minnesota, BLACK-OWNED businesses in the city say the ‘city has abandoned them.’  These poor people watched Black Lives Matter and Antifa and all the hateful white punks (especially the banshees) screaming and rioting, looting, robbing, raping, and burning, and the damned Twin Cities need to do something to get them back on their feet!  What the hell does it take?  Where the hell is Patrice Cullors and all her millions of dollars?  Where is Joe Biden?  HELP these people.  Elsewhere, the Washington Post was slammed earlier today for their disgraceful ‘fact-checking’ on Senator Tim Scott’s ‘from the cotton fields to Congress’ statement awhile back.  Leftists are scumbags, what more can one say?  In other whack-job news, Climate Czar John F. Kerry says that the administration is exploring a BORDER ADJUSTMENT TAX that will slap additional taxes, i.e., tariffs, on nations with weaker climate policies.  Folks, it’s time to make up NICE with Russia or China and seek asylum.  These people are cray-cray.
  95. 2021 Friday U: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1653: 04, 28, 29,30, 60, and Mega 25.  Stay tuned for news on the winners… Out of 111,596 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $14,862 apiece.

104. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 2022

Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  50. 2002 Sunday: Dictator and thug Hugo Chavez returns to power in Venezuela.  Many people will pay the price for his return.  The people of Venezuela tried to depose this POS, but enough scumbags rallied to his side to save him and put him back in power.
  51. 2003 Monday: It sucks to be a terrorist: in Baghdad, U.S. troops capture a Palestinian POS, Abu Abbas, a man responsible for murdering an American on the cruise ship Achille Lauro, sailing in the Mediterranean when it was commandeered by jihadists.  The scum threw disabled passenger Leon Klinghoffer overboard in his wheelchair.  Brave scumbag.  Hang him.  Elsewhere, near Richmond, California, the headless body of a female and a fetus with the umbilical cord still attached wash up on the shore.  Law enforcement officers test the body for DNA and learn that the remains are those of Laci Peterson and her unborn baby who have been missing from their Modesto, California, home since December 24, 2002.  This would bode ill for her husband and the baby’s father, Scott Peterson.
  52. 2004 Wednesday: In a historic policy shift, President George W. Bush endorsed Israel’s plan to hold on to part of the West Bank in any final peace settlement with the Palestinians.  He also ruled out Palestinian refugees returning to Israel, bringing strong criticism from the scumbag Palestinians.
  53. 2005 Thursday: Near the Palestinian town of Nablus, Israeli troops whack a member of the terrorist group, Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, who was preparing to launch an attack into Israel.  Israeli officials placed blame for the incident squarely atop the shoulders of the Palestinian garbage running the show in Gaza City.  These people are all jihadists and jihadists must be whacked wherever discovered.  Excellent work, Israel!
  54. 2006 Friday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad meeting with Hamas officials at a conference on Palestinian statehood blasts the Israeli government as being a dying, rotten tree, one that will disappear with the first storm.’  Israel is still there, and Ahmadinejad is full of fecal matter.  Elsewhere, Chad severs ties with the Sudan after Islamist rebels from Chad carry out an attack within their own country, killing at least 350 people and wounding countless others.  Chad points the finger of blame directly at Khartoum which remains mum.
  55. 2007 Saturday: Not that it did any good, 200,000 people take to the streets in Ankara, Turkey, protesting against the possible candidacy of want-to-be dictator for life, incumbent Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  The POS is still there in 2020.

Security Councils condemnation of its April 15 rocket launch.
  58. 2010 Wednesday: The Vatican finds itself in the hotseat when a top cardinal within the church links homosexuality with pedophilia in discussions over the recent wave of sex scandals threatening the institution.  You know, if the shoe fits; still, whether the Roman Catholic Church knows it or not, everyone is beginning to get WOKE.  Some things you can say and others you can’t and what the cardinal said is one of the bad ones…in other news, whispers are coming out of the White House that President Barack Hussein Obama is going to debut a new plan with which to send American astronauts to Mars.  Supposedly, this will occur tomorrow.  The funny thing is that NOT long after he became president, he scrapped NASA’s plans for returning astronauts to the moon.  He wanted the money for his bogus social re-engineering programs.
  59. 2011 Thursday: President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy publish an op-ed in a global newspaper- International Herald Tribune– in which the three leaders share their vision on how best to end the Libyan Civil War, one these guys sort of had a hand in starting and now like George W.

  63. 2015 Tuesday: President Barack Hussein Obama meets with Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi to discuss the ongoing fight against the Islamic State.  The American president says he will send the nation ‘humanitarian aid’ but in his usual ‘f**k this’ attitude, will not commit to sending the beleaguered nation military supplies.
  64. 2016 Thursday: Palestinians are always causing trouble and today is no different.  In Jerusalem, Israeli law enforcement catch two Palestinian 12-year-old boys who had an assortment of knives concealed within their clothing.  Off they went to the Hoosegow.  Meanwhile, near Hebron, a Palestinian extremist attacks an Israeli soldier with an axe but who is then shot dead for his troubles.  Piss on them.  Elsewhere, the Chinese announce they are going to prosecute 357 of its citizens for the illegal sale of vaccines.  What kind of vaccines? 
  65. 2017 Friday: Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, already serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder, was acquitted in Boston in a 2012 double-homicide that prosecutors claimed was fueled by his anger over a drink spilled on him at a nightclub.  Five days later, Hernandez supposedly hanged himself in his prison cell.   Elsewhere, European vessels plying the waters off of the Libyan coast come upon another floundering load of Sub-Saharan African ‘migrants’ and yank 2,000 of them out of the water.  
  66. 2018 Saturday: Terrorists attack an Egyptian army outpost in the Sinai today killing several soldiers.  At least 12-14 jihadis ran amok, four of them detonating suicide vests as they grappled with the soldiers.  At least 8 Egyptian soldiers lost their lives in the skirmish.  Further north, problems continue along the border between Israel and Gaza.  A visiting delegation of Egyptian leaders encourage the Palestinians to call off their ‘Great March of Return.’  This event witnesses Hamas sending out cannon fodder to engage with the Israeli Defense Forces so people can get killed and Hamas can then point fingers at Israel.  We say, stop giving the Palestinians money.  Period.
  67. 2019 Sunday: Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a woman with numerous problems, finds herself at the center of controversy yet again after comments made at a 9/11 speech come to light in which, she tries to cover up the role of Islam in bringing down the Twin Towers.  President Donald J. Trump hammers the skank while- shock of shocks- Nancy Pelosi rushes to her defense.  Boot both women out of Congress.
  68. 2020 Tuesday: Today, former President Barack Hussein Obama endorsed his former vice president, “Pro-China Joe” Biden for the 2020 presidential nomination of the Democratic Party.  He did so via social media.  Mr. Obama joins the Chinese taskmasters running the Biden campaign in selecting the ‘right man for the job’ should he win in November (which he won’t).  Meanwhile, the Kung Flu- aka COVID-19, aka coronavirus, aka Wuhan Virus, aka Wuhan Flu, aka Wuhan Virus Crisis- continues claiming lives and causing economic destruction wherever it occurs.  Current statistics show a total of 1,968,943 confirmed cases with 123,783 confirmed deaths and 464,135 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have a total (at the time of this update) 598,737 confirmed cases what with 24,770 confirmed deaths and 38,015 confirmed recoveries.  We must thank our Chinese ‘friends’ for giving us the gift that won’t stop giving.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China, thank you.
  69. 2020 Tuesday A: As of this evening, the world has 1,981,239 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus Crisis what with 126,681 confirmed deaths and 486,622 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, 614,416 confirmed cases and 29,897 confirmed deaths and 48,036 confirmed recoveries.  Now, get this, the People’s Republic of China claims to have 84,393 confirmed cases, 3.342 deaths and 78,877 confirmed recoveries.  Amazing is it not?  The U.S. State Department estimates that in truth, at least 2.2 million to 2.5 million fatalities connected to this lab-engineered, diabolical virus and yet, they claim it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announces that he will put a hold on the money the United States gives to the World Health Organization.  About time, Mr. President, about time.  How about putting an American into the place of Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus?  That makes more sense than having a Third World toady for China in the gig.

  72. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,706,728 confirmed cases, 60,507 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,141,686 confirmed cases, 34,164 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,175 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 381,537 confirmed cases, 5,391 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Utah, the home of a bunch of rebellious Mormons who dressed up like Native Americans and attacked settlers on the Oregon Trail: they have 391,177 confirmed cases, 2,161 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii]

  77. 2021 Wednesday G: WASHINGTON, D.C. STATEHOOD– a recent poll says that of all 50 states and Washington, D.C., the latter is viewed as the absolute worst place to live and work.  Speaking of statehood, 22 Republican state attorney-generals are suing the Biden administration saying that statehood for the nation’s capital is unconstitutional which it is.  The nation’s capital was meant to be an independent federal district.  Perhaps they should return the real estate given to the district by the surrounding states back to the donors.  There.  Problem solved.  They can pay taxes to the states.  Ah, well, the House Oversight Committee is going to vote on a bill- H.R. 51- authorizing D.C. statehood later in the week.  Still, Democrats are facing cries of “HYPOCRISY” over the court-packing scheme seeing as how they were against it before they were for it.

Trump planned but on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001: September 11, 2021.[xv]  However, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns is pushing back on this announcement.[xvi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: CRIME AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE NEWS– The judge in the Derek Chauvin murder trial today refused a motion to dismiss the case.  Meanwhile, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, Police Officer Kim Potter was arrested today and charged with second degree manslaughter in the accidental shooting death of thug Duante Wright.  Police in the city also had to put barricades around her family’s home seeing as how rioting has been ongoing there now for three days.  Last night, law enforcement arrested another 60 people rioting and running amok in the streets.  We say, “Shoot them and re-establish law and order in your city.”   In other criminal justice news, Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff died in federal prison at age 83.  In doing so, he was able to beat serving his 150-year prison sentence.  C’ est la vie.  Finally, as the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin continues, a defense expert testifies that Mr. Floyd did not die from Officer Chauvin’s actions but from a heart rhythm problem.  (Interesting note- a report says that NYPD officers stood by as four MS-13 gangbangers loaded a dead body into the trunk of their vehicle).

  81. 2021 Wednesday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Capitol Hill officer who shot and killed 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt during the January 06, 2021, FALSE FLAG operation, aka the infamous Capitol Hill Riots- of that ill-fated day will face NO charges whatsoever even though film makes it clear there was no reason for such an incident to have occurred.  Good to have friends in high places, folks.  Next, major U.S. corporations are all banding together to thwart the new voting laws seeking to infuse more honesty and openness into the laws so that what happened on November 03, 2020, does not occur again; namely, stealing a presidential election and giving it to a horrible candidate, creepy old Joe Biden.  Elsewhere, several GOP senators are seeking to strip Major League Baseball of its anti-trust protections.  Kick MLB to the curb.

  83. 2021 Wednesday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV– The Democrats are preparing to release a new plan with which to expand the U.S. Supreme Court from nine seats to 13.  This is indeed ‘packing the courts,’ something Joe Biden swore upon the head of Satan (just kidding) he would NEVER do.  Congressman Ted Budd, R-NC 13th congressional district, says a constitutional amendment is required with which to fix the number of justices at nine.  Meanwhile, Congressman Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Major League Baseball is punishing the people it claims to be helping.’  Next, the Dems have another plan, one into which they will pour another $50 billion to eradicate student loan debt.  This will wipe out the debt for 36 million of our fellow Americans.  Good.  Elsewhere, former President George W. Bush laments that he did not pass comprehensive immigration reform when HE was president.  How about enforcing the laws?

  86. 2021 Wednesday P: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– the United States and Germany are warning Russia to pull back from Ukraine’s borders.  The Biden administration plans to slap new sanctions atop Vladimir Putin and the Russian government.  Let’s see what that does.  Meanwhile, experts say that thanks to U.S. stupidity, we have built the Chi-Com military for them via the lopsided trade disparities as well as permitting to steal everything they can get their thieving hands on.  Wow.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 565,609 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 200,944 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 449 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  90. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,149,794 confirmed cases, 89,675 confirmed deaths, and 8,897,475 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,919,467 confirmed cases, 73,656 confirmed deaths, and 5,798,702 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 243,299 confirmed cases, 1,390 confirmed deaths, and 237,218 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,471,754 confirmed cases, 12,589 confirmed deaths, and 1,433,781 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., North Dakota: they have 240,109 confirmed cases, 2,251 confirmed deaths, and 237,715 confirmed recoveries.[xix]

  93. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.719 per gallon, $4.016 in Florida, $5.238 in Hawaii, and $4.654 in Washington state.[xxiv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Iowa- $3.796.  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 16th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Yemen: $2.137 per U.S. Gallon.[xxv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,384,833,492,283 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Netherlands the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland.  This nation holds $51,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).  
  94. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Governor Greg Abbott is hammering out agreements with various Mexican state governors to stop the flow of the Biden-Harris illegals into the Lone Star State.  If the Mexican governors fail to provide security along their shared borders, every single vehicle crossing the border heading north will be stopped and inspected.  Billions of dollars of revenues will be lost which hopefully will propel the governors to doing the right thing.  IF the Biden-Harris regime won’t do the job, Texas will.  Hopefully, Arizona and New Mexico will follow suit leaving California to bear the brunt of illegal aliens alone. Okay, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is a shocking $662,179,656.  The cost of caring for them since these two losers took charge is $42,408,255,399.  Wow.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since January 01, 2022, is in our estimation 1,057,658.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is 46,479,144. We believe the number of illegals is closer to 85-to-100 million which is a detestable number.  Round ‘em up, imprison them, and then deport them after they work off their transgressions. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  95. 2022 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Finland and Sweden are seeking fast-track membership in NATO which has led the tottering Putin regime in Russia to threaten a build-up of its nuclear forces if the two neutral nations become the newest members of NATO.  In more unwelcome news for Russia, however, Ukraine sank Russia’s Black Sea flagship- the Moskva– with a land-to-sea missile.  Belching smoke and flames, the vessel went to the bottom with sailors leaping into the sea.  In an attempt to cover up the disaster, Moscow claimed sailors smoking cigarettes somehow sank the ship- which, if true- is worse than the ship being sunk via a missile.  What can go wrong for the Putin regime next?  We suspect that the military and intelligence leadership is NOT going to permit much more of these disasters to continue.  President Putin had better keep his back to the wall at all times; otherwise, someone is going to come up behind him and cap him.  It’s what Russians do.  (Note- this is so reminiscent of the Winter War of 1939- the Finns beat the living crap out of the Russians).

  101. 2022 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I- Information continues to arise linking the FBI not only to the events of January 06, 2021, but to the ‘plot’ to kidnap one of America’s absolute worst governors, Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI.  Last week, virtually everyone charged by the feds was either acquitted or had a mistrial which blows the government’s case out of the water.  Julie Kelly reports that regarding January 06, 2021, i.e., the INSURRECTION, there were more than 1,000 FBI agents, informants, and/or stooges in the crowd inciting the ensuing mayhem.  This is disturbing and the FBI must undergo a massive purification to remove the leftist losers causing inner rot within the once proud organization.  Our advice to anyone faced with an interview with the FBI: ask for a lawyer and then go silent.  Period.   Remember: the few remaining good apples are tainted by the multitudes of bad ones.
  102. 2022 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II- Apparently, the Biden White House is struggling with how much information to provide the Ukrainians.   Next, the Biden White House indicts a Russian legislator and two aides operating in the U.S. whom they claim are running an anti-Ukrainian propaganda site in the U.S.  Next, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns says, ‘don’t count out Russia using nukes in Ukraine.’  Good to know.   Next, the Biden regime is preparing a crackdown on those seeking to evade regime-imposed sanctions on Russia.  Good to know, too.
  103. 2022 Thursday M: Political News I- A new poll says that a large majority of Americans do not believe gun control will stop mass shootings.   Next, BIG DEMOCRAT DONOR from Los Angeles, California, the disgusting Ed Buck- longtime close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Obamas– has received 30 years for his crack-induced overdose deaths of young black men he enticed into his home to have sex with him.  Good riddance to a POS.   Another close friend of the Clintons- attorney Michael Sussman- watched his request for his Russia-collusion scam case to be dropped- swatted aside.  The Durham investigation is going to go after this scumbag on the ladder up to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  104. 2022 Thursday N: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News- Pro-Death proponents in Florida are going insane what with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis signing into law a bill banning ALL abortions after 15 weeks.  Whatever happened to birth control, i.e., ‘the pill?’  It used to be everyone sought to prevent pregnancy rather than to murder the outcome of a pregnancy.  Something is wrong in a country when it murders its unborn and seeks to replace the mass genocide of its young people with illegal aliens.  (Note- I am so glad I now live abroad.  Israel values ALL life, not just those that are ‘convenient’).
  105. 2022 Thursday O: Big Tech News- Elon Musk has put up a $43 billion bid with which to buy Twitter and put it back on the path towards FREE SPEECH.  Of course, the left in America and around the world is going bonkers.  Who knows?  Maybe Elon will launch a hostile takeover of Meta-Facebook.  Now that would be something.  Time to round up all these tech moguls and send them to Devil’s Island for all the harm they’ve caused the world.
  106. 2022 Thursday P: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.
