Question is, does the conflict in Ukraine possess the same spark potential as did the assassination of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife, Sophie? Take out Putin NOW!

  63. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.

  81. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, that tomorrow’s ‘Justice for J6 Rally’ is going to be a setup.  We believe that tomorrow’s affair is going to be a “Mumbles” Pelosi setup what with loads of FBI informants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators, and that anyone who does not want to end up in the D.C. gulag with the other 400-plus poor souls would be wise to avoid the nation’s capital.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts one of the losers who voted to impeach him- retiring Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, RINO-OH 16th congressional district, by saying that the Rep.’s vote to impeach him was ‘very stupid.’  It was.  Look at what is happening to the losers who voted to impeach the 45th president.  One by one, they are losing support, becoming impotent, and will soon all be gone.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is weighing executive privilege in releasing documents related to President Donald J. Trump and the events of January 06, 2021.  Speaking of slobbering Joe, his approval ratings have imploded down to 44-percent- his lowest yet- which means in reality, the loser’s polls are nearer 34-30-percent than they are 44-percent.  Newsmax host Rob Finnerty says, ‘bye-bye Bide, the future we all knew was coming and didn’t want to admit.’ Meanwhile, in another slap to the feeble dictator, two large polluter nations were absent from Joe Biden’s follow-up climate summit.  Finally, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that ‘Joe Biden’s mandate regarding businesses forcing employees to get the Chi-Com vaccinations is divisive and that it undermines doctors.’
  83. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has interceded in the Purdue Pharma company settlement wanting to go after them some more.  In other Biden regime-related news, the impotent U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken deleted a tweet that said, “The U.S. stands with Hong Kong.”  Chi-Coms didn’t like that, eh?  Next- in something that sounds mighty unconstitutional to most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, the Biden regime is cutting off the supply of monoclonal antibodies to Red States.
  84. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Nineteen days after blowing up an Afghan ally of the United States and nine members of his family for being the ‘one’ who plotted and carried out the August 27, 2021, suicide bombing that killed 13 American servicemen-and-women, the Pentagon was forced to announce that it had erred taking ‘Taliban intel’ and blowing up this poor man and his family sight unseen.  Oooh, the mighty United States, whacking and stacking God knows who just as it did during the heady days of Obama-Biden.  Still, the Biden regime has better things to do- the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the way it holds ‘tranny prisoners’ in federal prisons.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Served papers yesterday while on a live radio program conducting an interview, famed political strategist Roger Stone said ‘there’s NO evidence supporting the lawsuit against him’ regarding U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the geriatric, nonagenarian leader of the House, and her claims of being behind the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  We believe you, Roger.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has okayed ‘100 National Guard troops to be on scene for the Saturday rally.’
  86. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– The Republican National Committee has released a new ad showing the countless times that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has lied, flipflopped, or laid bull crap on the American people. Ronna McDaniel- chair of the RNC- says that ‘Joe Biden’s COVID-19 mandates are the results of his far too many failures.’  Next, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says that ‘Joe Biden has NO business forcing COVID-19 mandates on the American people.’  Amen. 
  87. 2021 Friday T: Political News II– Axios reported today- to the dismay of the Biden regime- that under no circumstances will Senator Joe Manchin, D- W. VA, will vote ‘YES’ on the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Good.  Elsewhere, Arkansas senatorial candidate and U.S. Army veteran Jake Bequette says that the massive crowds attending college football games shows that the American people are ready to return to their lives.  The government had better pay attention to this. 
  88. 2021 Friday U: Political News III– Thirteen hardcore leftist Dems are pushing for expanded unemployment benefits in the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills.  Meanwhile, Health and Human Services tells Texas abortion providers, “We got your backs.”  Elsewhere, Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, D-MD 5th congressional district, says that the House will hold a vote so as to avoid imminent government default and subsequent shutdown.  Elsewhere, as mobs of illegal alien invaders swarm under the Del Rio, Texas, bridge, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that the “National Guard should be deployed to maintain order under and along that bridge as a swarm of 10,000 or more Haitian ‘asylum seekers’ mills about there.
  89. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– As outrage continues to grow regarding Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and his phone calls with the Chi-Coms, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien say the ‘NSA had NO intel suggesting anything that disingenuous fiction author Bob Woodward says in his new book, “Peril,” existed.  Mr. Woodward says that ‘General Milley called the Chi-Coms to warn them that he would warn them should Trump decide to nuke them in his final days.’  Gen. Milley must face courts marshal for being a traitor.
  90. 2021 Friday W: Business News– Ford Motor Company claims the demand for its EV Ford 150 electric trucks is so great that they are going to invest $250 million to increase production and add another 450 jobs in three plants in Michigan to meet this incredible demand.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Tesla is going to work with regulators on data security, something of which, they seem to have problems.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After many years, ‘jinx’ multi-millionaire Robert Durst finally was found guilty of murdering his best friend.  Meanwhile, the judge in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse- accused of murdering two Antifa POS- said that the prosecution cannot bring up ties between Mr. Rittenhouse and the patriotic organization, the Proud Boys.
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Big Tech News– Get this: the arbiter of what’s ‘true’ on the Internet, Google, and Apple, have removed imprisoned critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny’s ‘tactical voting app’ designed to mobilize the Russian people to fight back against the new communist dictator, Mr. Putin.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com intelligence gathering app- TikTok- has a new problem, the so-called ‘devious licks challenge’ that encourages American school-aged kids to break the law via vandalism.  Isn’t it about time we began nuking these sons of bitches?
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, the final Sears (and Roebuck) store- north of Chicago, Illinois- is set to close on November 14, 2021.  What a tragedy of mismanagement, not knowing its customers any longer, and being unable to morph with the times.  Sad, extremely sad, it did not have to happen.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: New York State News– Freshman Governor Kathy Hochul, D-NY, has given the people of her state a big gift: 191 freed inmates.  Meanwhile, three people went off on a New York City eatery host for requesting proof of vaccination before allowing them to enter.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Texas State News– Another Texas death row inmate has had his execution delayed over religious freedom claims.  Meanwhile, Governor Greg Abbott signed a $1.8 billion infrastructure bill to continue erecting the Trump border wall.  The governor said, ‘Joe Biden’s failures to do his job guarding the border has forced Texas to do the federal government’s job at protecting the border and its citizens.’  Meanwhile, state Representative Matt Krause, Republican, is going to primary sitting Attorney General Ken Paxton in 2022.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– Campus Reform students sign a petition to abolish the U.S. Constitution because it’s racist, doesn’t recognize gays, trannys, and people of color.  In other ‘moron news,’ U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-12th congressional district, a person whom capitalism has benefitted immensely, jumped on the socialist train while overseas and says that ‘capitalism has not served the U.S. well.’
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Today, Los Angeles, California, was announced to be the ‘Bedbug capital of the United States.’  Now that’s a distinction that every town and city in the entire United States covets.  Wow. No wonder we no longer like going to the city of (Fallen) Angels.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1695 what with a $400 million jackpot on the line: 17, 32, 40, 59, 61, and Mega 18.  Out of 130,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,613 apiece.
  99. 2021 Saturday: Observation of the Day– This past Tuesday, Greta Van Susteren had John “Perpetual War” Bolton on her show on Newsmax and the two discussed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to tactical nukes on the battlefield in Ukraine.   Look, if Adolf Hitler had nukes in 1944 or 1945, he would have used them against Great Britain and Russia for sure and the against U.S. if he could have delivered them.  That little cave-dwelling, slope-headed cretin Vladimir Putin sure as heck does have nukes and if he is facing Armageddon, then so will his enemies.  He already has severed energy supplies to the stupid-assed Europeans who came to depend upon him the same way American leaders delivered our country into the pockets of Xi Jinping.  We could be on the cusp of a global catastrophe much like the world was in early summer 1914 because back then, NO one believed that a far-off conflict in Eastern Europe could envelop almost all of the world in its horrifying embrace.  Yet, by the end of the year, three-quarters of the world was involved in the worst bloodletting the globe had ever seen. Serbia is not that far away from Ukraine so it’s easy to see how just the right spark- like a strike on one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants- could be the spark of the End Times.  Let us pray that someone dispatches Vladimir Putin and soon so we can avoid just such an outcome.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick next delivered a four-tune EP on June 02, 1980, the acclaimed “Found All the Parts.”  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Being an extended play much like a double-sided single with two tunes on either side, the band provides some awesome tunes.  First, we have a cover of the Beatles’ “Day Tripper” followed by “Can’t Hold On” followed by two more tracks, “Such a Good Girl” and “Take Me, I’m Yours.”  You can seek this one out at your favorite site for music or you can purchase the extended version of tomorrow’s offering as it has all four of these tunes added as bonus tracks.  Either way, the decision rests with you and your pocketbook.  Enjoy.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

231. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 2022

It might be time to begin playing ball and soon because this November, well, things may not change for the good. It’s clear the Senate Republicans are not interested in regaining power. Go figure. “Cocaine Mitch” didn’t earn that nickname for nothing you know. We hope by next year we will be able to reconfigure our blog so that it meets the requirements of the contemporary ruling class.

  69. 2020 Wednesday C: Following U.S. tire manufacturer Goodyear Tires banning its employees from wearing MAGA hats, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet urging people not to buy the company’s tires and other products.  Goodyear backtracks really quick and tries to clarify what it said.  It looks like employees can wear MAGA hats if they so choose.    Speaking of the Trump administration, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows echoes statements made by Dr. Tony Fauci and other medical professionals that ‘if it’s okay to protest in the streets, it’s okay to vote in person.’  We wholeheartedly agree with this view.   Finally, U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr reports more than 1,000 arrests in Operation Legend in which, the federal government partners with local law enforcement officers to take down violent scumbags.  Meanwhile, the dragnet is on for Marquise Love, a BLM supporter who stoved in the head of a passing motorist whose only crime is that he tried to come to the aid of a tranny in Portland, Oregon, whom thugs were beating and robbing on Sunday night in the 80th straight night of violent protests and riots.  Find this POS and beat his ass.

Kamala Harris, VP nominee, D-CA.  It looks to be ‘another exciting night.’  Speaking of Democrats, former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty in federal court today for tampering with evidence.  He is the first member of the communist Chinese-Democratic Party coup against Donald J. Trump.  Prison for you and loss of the right to practice law.  Stay tuned for more…
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has suspended or canceled three bilateral agreements with Hong Kong since the Chi-Coms on the mainland have reneged on the guarantees they made with the citizens of the former British Crown Colony.   Some of the agreements deal with tax exemptions from international shipping and extradition treaties, making the Beijing bullies angry yet again.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their criminality, here are today’s stats for the novel coronavirus they purposely sent around the planet:

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 324,355 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 79,723 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiii]   
  78. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 970,606 confirmed cases, 6,752 confirmed deaths, and 902,220 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Sint Maarten, 184th country on the list: 3,313 cases of the virus, 17 confirmed deaths and 2,924 confirmed recoveries.

  80. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.403 per gallon, $2.999 in Florida, $4.088 in Hawaii, and $3.909 in Washington state. [xix]    Let us look at one other location- Ohio: $2.995.  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- Andorra: $5.489 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,660,954,261,668 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after 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 top position.
  81. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman assured reporters that all seeking to make it into Hamid Karzai International Airport will have ‘safe passage.’  Elsewhere, protests continue around Afghanistan as the human fecal matter of the Taliban continue consolidating power.  In Jalalabad, the Taliban had to shoot into crowds of angry protesters.  What a disaster.  In other parts of the collapse, French and British troops are crisscrossing Kabul to bring their citizens to the airport for evacuation while the U.S. continues to claim, ‘we can’t go outside the airport to help our people.’  Meanwhile, a former female Afghan pilot who managed to get out of the imploding disaster says that the ‘repression of women will begin very soon.’  Speaking of Afghan women, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, asked a very piercing question today: ‘where is “Kooky Kamala” Harris on ‘women’s rights in Afghanistan?”  Answer: nowhere to be found.  Next, Joe Biden said something incredibly stupid when he claimed that the ‘Taliban is different today now that Osama Bin Laden is dead.’  Huh?  Finally, Rep. Jason Crow, D-CO 6th congressional district, ripped into absent Joe Biden over the absurdity of the ‘evacuation’ in Afghanistan.
  82. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must.  Today is Day No. 148 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 55th day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $566,730,229.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $251,525,690,195.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,660,454.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,656,452.  (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).
  83. 2021 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– U.S. Border Patrol Agents have sought to volunteer to serve in Afghanistan.  Next, a judge slapped down the White House’s narrowing of the categories the U.S. Border Patrol can detain and deport which will give ICE more leeway in crisscrossing the country to scoop up illegal aliens and begin getting them the hell out of our country.  NOW.
  84. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– When new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett arrives in Washington, D.C., to meet with the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear next week, the topic of discussion will be the U.S. returning to the failed ‘nuclear talks with the Iranian criminal regime.’  We hope the Israelis are going to nuke the mullahs before the camel thieves in Tehran go nuclear.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms slap a 40-percent capacity on U.S. airliners flying into communist China, the U.S. Department of Transportation slaps a similar passenger cut on all Chi-Com airliners flying into the United States.  (Note- a new Chi-Com ‘rap song’ (you know this has to be good) contains lyrics that say the Xi Jinping Bat Flu virus came from a ‘U.S. military lab.’  What a loser).  Next, we learned today that former President Ashraf Ghani removed $169 million from Afghanistan when he jumped ship earlier in the week.
  85. 2021 Thursday J: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Chi-Coms and the Russians are rubbing their hands in glee now that the Taliban control all the mineral mines in the country.  Captives of the Taliban will be down inside the mines doing the bidding of the Chi-Coms and Russkies.  Poor bastards.  Speaking of the Russians, due to their internecine contacts throughout Afghanistan, Moscow knew of the looming collapse whereas U.S. intel apparently had no clue whatsoever as to what was coming.  Wow.  Speaking of the Afghan collapse, another U.S. poll says that 70-percent of the American people believe that Joe Biden F****d up the Afghan withdrawal.
  86. 2021 Thursday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Three U.S. Senators- Angus King, I-ME, Roger Wicker, R-MS, and John Hickenlooper, DS-CO, have tested positive for the ‘VID.  All three of these politicians are 100-percent fully vaccinated and yet, they have come down with the Chi-Vi.  Famed journalist Alex Berenson told Tucker Carlson that the vaccines spike antibodies in the recipients which makes the receivers almost ‘invulnerable’ towards the virus but ONLY for a short while.  Then, immunity falls, and the patient becomes vulnerable again.  It appears we will have to get ‘boosters’ every other month which is frigging crazy.  NO way we are getting the vaccines to begin with, no way.
  87. 2021 Thursday L: Health And Medical Alerts– Ex-head of Purdue Pharma Richard Sackler denies the company played a role in the opioid crisis.
  88. 2021 Thursday M: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Several universities around the country are fining unvaccinated students to try to force them in line.  In other news, that slobbering dimwit Joe Biden is demanding that ALL Americans rush out and get COVID-19 booster shots even before the Food and Drug Administration has given them approval.  Joe, STFU.  Oh, Joe and Dr. Jill are going to get their booster shots very, very soon.  In other news, California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder vows that IF elected, he will immediately ban all mask and Chi-Vi vaccine mandates issued by Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  Speaking of fascists, the TSA is extending its mask mandates for all passengers on airliners until January 2022.  Next, Orange County, Florida, school boards are fighting the ban on mask mandates imposed by “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis.  Meanwhile, Michigan lawmakers are battling extremely unpopular Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer’s attempts at imposing a Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio-style system of vaccine passports to go from one business to another.
  89. 2021 Thursday N: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $48.76 (2) AstraZeneca $59.19 (3) Johnson & Johnson $178.50 (4) BioNTech $331.81 (5) Moderna $375.53.  As we say, IF one cares to know WHY there is this BIG PUSH on everyone MUST get vaccinated, then get the booster shots, and continue wearing masks even while swimming in the pool, having sex, or alone in the Alaskan wilderness, all one need know is that our leaders- both right and left- invest their money in BIG PHARMA stocks.  That is all one need know.
  90. 2021 Thursday O: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.03 (2) General Dynamics: $195.49 (3) Boeing: $212.09 (4) Lockheed Martin: $354.03 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $361.25.  Likewise, even though it may not be popular, Democrats and Republicans alike invest in military-industrial complex stocks because the government directs money to them via contracts and money comes back to them in the form of donations, the classic money-go-round that the Kinks once sang about.
  91. 2021 Thursday P: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Pennsylvania legislature is demanding an election audit of the 2020 Elections.
  92. 2021 Thursday Q: Joe Biden News I– A new Rasmussen poll says that 17-percent of Joe Biden voters now wish they had voted for President Donald J. Trump instead.  We believe that and what is more, we suspect the number is far higher than that, perhaps around 47-57 percent.  Joe would not survive ‘re-election’[xxii] if the vote were held today.  Speaking of old Joe, he is returning to Delaware this afternoon for a long weekend at home.  Guess he must undergo another “Manchurian Candidate” (1961)-style treatment so he can remain somewhat coherent.  Also, no one seems to know where Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is or White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain.  What the f*** is going on?
  93. 2021 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is going to release its new plan with which to better vet and process the millions of illegal aliens trying to swamp the country.  Next, the regime is going to nominate Charles F. “Chuck” Sams III to become the next head of the U.S. National Park Service.  Sams is a tribal leader living in Oregon.
  94. 2021 Thursday S: Political News I– Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, blasts Joe Biden’s U.N. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield for ‘going easy on the Taliban.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Dan Meuser, R-PA 9th congressional district, continues banging the drum as to how the United States left nearly 200 Black Hawk helicopters in Afghanistan?  Meanwhile, outrage continues to grow over the dunce who is the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark A. Milley, and the stupid comments he made yesterday.  Look, this loser should be busted down to buck private and sent to monitor weather at the South Pole.  Talk about a stooge for Beijing.  (Note- the Pentagon claims to have airlifted 7,000 civilians out of Afghanistan.  Question: ours or theirs?)
  95. 2021 Thursday T: Political News II– Fifty U.S. senators are imploring the absent Biden regime to get our Afghan allies out of Afghanistan ASAP.  Meanwhile, as Afghanistan continues down the path of becoming the worst U.S. military and diplomatic disaster since the fall of Saigon in 1975, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, adds her voice to the chorus calling for the resignation of loopy old Joe Biden.   Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, says that ‘real time hearings on the snafu in Afghanistan must occur now.’ 
  96. 2021 Thursday U: Political News III– Meghan McCain, usually a pain in the ass, said something funny today: ‘Joe Biden is like Jimmy Carter on acid.’  Amen.  Hilarious.  Next, crazed liberal Larry David was screaming at famed legal scholar, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, over his ties to President Donald J. Trump.  Larry, sod off.  In other news, we learned today that the Biden regime shut down President Donald J. Trump’s “Crisis Response Bureau” within the U.S. Department of State that was designed to help in, uh, emergencies like what we are now witnessing in Afghanistan.  The Antitrump strikes again.  What is wrong with these losers?
  97. 2021 Thursday V: Federal and State Court News– A U.S. Court of Appeals upholds the Lone Star State’s new abortion ban on abortions AFTER a fetal heartbeat is first detected.   Elsewhere, Big Apple businesses are taking pot-smoking Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio to court over his harsh Chi-Vi vaccine passport restrictions for ALL businesses.  Elsewhere, a federal judge approves the bankruptcy case for the Boy Scouts of America that will see them fork over $850 million to pay off the massive number of sexual assault cases lodged against the once-proud organization.  Elsewhere, a judge in Philadelphia ruled that famed explorer Christopher Columbus’ statue can continue to stand.  Look for Antifa to tear it down soon.  
  98. 2021 Thursday W: Miscellaneous News I– A new Gallup poll says, ‘fewer Americans are imbibing alcohol.’  (Amigos, I contend they are using more medicinal pot- El Chilote).  Another poll says that a large number of Americans do not believe that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is qualified to be president.  (Note- heck, most Californians do not believe she was qualified to be a U.S. senator but at least we got her the hell out of our state.  El Chilote).
  99. 2021 Thursday X: Business News– Swedish scientists create the first ‘fossil fuel free’ steel. 
  100. 2021 Thursday Y: Economic News– Last week, 348,000 Americans filed for first-time jobless benefits.
  101. 2021 Thursday Z: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Florida prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for a POS scumbag who murdered a 26-year-old police officer, Jason Raynor.  Elsewhere, Capitol Hill police evacuated Cannon House congressional office building because some dumb ass was sitting outside in a truck claiming to have ‘explosive material.’  After five hours, he gave up and the police took him into custody.  Watch House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, resurrect ‘Fort Pelosi’ and demand that a division of U.S. Army troops garrison the Capitol at all times.  We suspect that this is yet another false flag operation initiated by the drooling speaker so she can clamp down on the capitol. 
  102. 2021 Thursday AA: Mass Shootings News– In Frankfurt, Indiana, one employee at the NHK Seating of America shot two fellow female coworkers outside in the parking lot.  Awaiting further details on the victims and the mope is in custody.
  103. 2021 Thursday BB: California State News– California continues to burn.  The Dixie Fire in northern California has now consumed 662,000 acres and is only 35-percent contained.  What a disaster, loser Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom needs to lose his office just because of poor forest management and dumb ass decisions as to how PG&E must work hard at going GREEN instead of protecting its transmission lines by putting them underground.
  104. 2021 Thursday CC: Sports News I– This is strange, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation is joining the probe into sexual assault allegations against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.  We didn’t know the FBI investigated allegations of sexual assault.  If they do, they should be investigating “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden, the Groper-in-Chief.
  105. 2021 Thursday DD: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Dane County, Wisconsin, Sheriff Kalvin Barrett announced today that the county will no longer call ‘inmates’ as such but will refer to them as ‘residents’ or as ‘people in our care’ so as not to stigmatize the criminals.  Sheriff Barrett, why don’t you stop inmates raping and beating other inmates?  We bet they would prefer that to the stupid name change.
  106. 2022 Friday: Friends, we are living in bizarre times.  It appears that we have one party aided by allies in the other who want China to become the global superpower.  It appears they believe that things will be much better for citizens of the world if Beijing is the one calling the shots.  Who knows?  Perhaps the American people will be akin to what the Greeks were to the Ancient Romans: slaves, albeit cultured ones, whose ethos the Romans adopted in many ways such as Greek becoming the upper-crust language, as educators, and as athletes and performers.  The Chinese love our basketball (while despising the black players), our movies (as long as they reflect what’s important to Beijing), and our technology which they readily buy or steal.  As far as I am concerned, it is possible the battle could already be over, we just don’t recognize it yet.  Still, when the Chinese physically arrive on our shores, a lot of these mixed-up young people believing themselves to be a gender opposite than the one at birth- along with the gays- are either going to end up in re-education camps or have their heads slapped atop the chopping block.  Our culture is polluted and by design.  The ones at the top will become the new nomenklatura while everyone else will become cogs in the machine– thank you, Pink Floyd.  It might be time to begin playing ball and soon because this November, well, things may not change for the good.  It’s clear the Senate Republicans are not interested in regaining power.  Go figure.  “Cocaine Mitch” didn’t earn that nickname for nothing you know.  We hope by next year we will be able to reconfigure our blog so that it meets the requirements of the contemporary ruling class.  (Note: it will be fascinating to see if the joint military exercises being held in Russia with the Chinese will see Chinese troops introduced into Ukraine.  After all, Nazi Germany had to bail out Fascist Italy time and again).  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys is yet another archival release.  “The Beach Boys’ Party Uncovered and Unplugged” is an extended expansion of their earlier ‘party album’ from back in the day which we will now revisit for your edification: The next album by the Beach Boys was filler of sorts what with it being an album of covers done with acoustic instruments and vocals.  “Beach Boys Party” came out on November 08, 1965 and was received well even though the times they were a-changing all-right.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Brian Wilson had by this time suffered his first mental breakdown due to the constant stress of being forced by his family members to write hit songs and commercial albums as well as nonstop touring and friction with his abusive father Murray.  He also was experimenting with the popular drugs of the time so he could raise the level of his songwriting which was to come.  We presented this album back on May 22, 2022, a Thursday, by our recollection.  This one features 81 cuts, all of which are a pleasure to behold- audio-wise.  Great album for an increasingly contentious time in the history of the world which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.
