Currently, Joe is shy 180,827 deaths.   Now that the CDC says it’s ‘okay’ for kids aged 12-15 to get the shots, the Biden regime is urging parents to rush their children to the nearest drug store to get their immunizations for the Bat Fu Yuk out of Wuhan, communist China.    
  66. 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: 3,763,165 confirmed cases, 62,463 confirmed deaths, and 2,006,829 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,278,549 confirmed cases, 35,897 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,556 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,376 confirmed cases, 489 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 420,192 confirmed cases, 5,663 confirmed deaths, and 203,994 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the U.S. Military: they have 291,757 confirmed cases, 348 confirmed deaths, and 278,457 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  69. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.112 per gallon, $2.886 in Florida, $3.840 in Hawaii, and $3.522 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- South Carolina: $2.820.  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- Egypt: $2.114 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,278,809,428,671 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.
  70. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 50 for ‘Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the border.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime continues the so-called ‘controversial’ Title 42 implemented by President Donald J. Trump back in March 2020 to close the southern border over Bat Fu Yuk concerns to all but the most essential travel.  People are asking where “Kooky Kamala” stands on the Biden regime continuing the Trump policy?  (Note- we all believe that the border remains wide open and that armies of illegal aliens continue pouring across it which is why we suggest seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, lining the border with minefields, laying in foo gas pits, building anti-personnel, anti-vehicle, and \anti-boat obstacles,  as well as to station fast-response units along the border.  We also believe that U.S. Special Forces MUST carry out targeted assassinations of human traffickers, smugglers, and other criminals operating along our southern border).  (Additional note- NO matter what these lying Biden regime officials say, people are still flooding across the southern border.  Period.  In April, more than 178,000 illegals were apprehended crossing the border while 6,000 illegal aliens per day are being released into the interior of the country.  Hunting licenses anyone?).[xxi]
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fighting between the Israelis and the human fecal matter in Gaza continues, thanks to the Biden regime sending billions to the Iranians and millions to the Palestinian terrorists.  Missiles are crisscrossing the border with at least 55 dead, most of whom are Palestinians.[xxii]  The Israelis have launched targeted missile strikes on the Islamic National Bank and the Finance Ministry in Gaza leveling both buildings to the ground.  Speaking of the Iranians, so-called ‘Climate Czar’ John F. “Lurch” Kerry swore today that he NEVER informed the Iranians of Israeli covert ops in Syria.  The Iranians claim otherwise.  Still, the Biden regime is sending a flunky from the U.S. State Department to broker some sort of peace deal between the warring sides.  Good luck.  (Note- at least befuddled old Joe says that ‘Israel has a right to exist and to defend itself.  Exceptionally good, Joe, exceptionally good).
  72. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Joe Biden’s erratic policies according to a new report are giving the Chi-Coms the ‘edge’ over the United States.  We concur.  In another surprise news, the U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is sanctioning a Chi-Com official, Yu Hui, who USED to hold office that allowed him to persecute the Falun Gong and other religious minorities.  Wow.  Next, Secretary Blinken stressed ‘U.S. resolve’ to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.  We bet Mr. Lavrov was trembling in his shoes.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– A new report says that thanks to the Chi-Coms and their release of the ‘VID around the world and to the United States, drug overdose deaths in the U.S. went back up in 2020.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is raising questions about events that have become commonplace during the China Virus pandemic such as lockdowns and restrictions, especially on religious liberties.  Elsewhere, a panel agreed that the WHO- the World Health Organization- should have greater latitude in investigating the origins of pandemics.  Currently, the WHO is in the pocket of the Beijing Bullies.  Moving on, the Buckeye State is giving vaccinated citizens the opportunity to win a lottery of $1 million.  They hope everyone will rush out to get the vaccine.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– White House reporters are lambasting the Biden regime over its lack of transparency.  Dumb asses, listen up!  First, Joe Biden can only get it together once or twice a week.  The man is senile.  Second, what you see is a continuation of the Obama-Biden regime that shut out the news media, conducted its own in-house photography sessions, and even spied and jailed reporters.  YOU OWN THIS.  They are unhappy that the White House comm team edits all quotes before they go to press.  Wow.  Sounds like Joseph Goebbels is somewhere behind the scenes…Elsewhere, 120 former U.S. military and Department of Defense officials are warning about the peril our country faces as well as that from Joe Biden’s mental fitness (or lack of it).
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Biden regime is going to provide federal COVID-19 relief aid to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, Joe Biden is going full-blown Cloward and Piven by pushing his $4.1 trillion spending bill.  He said to the BIG FOUR House and Senate leaders- Kevin McCarthy and “Cocaine  Mitch” McConnell on the right side of the aisle and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- that all he has to do is ‘to snap his (flaccid) fingers and so it shall be.’  Whoa, Joe, whoa. The GOP leaders told ‘Forgetful Joe’ moments later that ‘raising taxes on the American people is a nonstarter.’  
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News–  According to Newsmax, prosecutors in the Derek Chauvin case asked for an ‘upward departure’ which means that they want Chauvin to get more time than he originally would have due to the fact that he abused his power.  The judge in the case agreed and made a ruling that will allow the sentence to become harsher both for him and the other three officers awaiting trial.   Meanwhile, the POS shooter who opened up in Times Square, New York City, a few days ago and shot three people including a young child was apprehended down in Florida. 
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Last night, she was running her mouth and today, she is still running her mouth.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, was voted out as House GOP conference chair.  She went to the mics after being humiliated and said she ‘will work to make sure that President Donald J. Trump NEVER gets close to the White House ever again.’  WTF is wrong with you, Liz?  Just cross over to the Democrat side of the aisle, you and your father were NEVER flipping Republicans, you frigging moron.[xxiii]  Ret. Col. Denton Knapp says, ‘Cheney’s ouster was justified.’  Correct.  She is not a team player.  However, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the ‘House GOP will advance with a unified conservative vision’ as the real battle is winning the House (and Senate) back in 2022.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– Yet another Democrat domino topples, this time new tax records show that a former staffer for Senator Dianne “The Disoriented” Feinstein- Daniel Jones who runs the ultra-left-wing, pro-Marxist TDIP, aka the Democracy Integrity Project, colluded with George Soros, the globalist former Nazi now a pro-communist scumbag to fund the so-called ‘Steele Dossier,’ the phony document with which the Democrats went after President Donald J. Trump.  It is amazing as to how as time passes; more information comes to light that continues to show just what an evil, bogus sham investigation the ‘Special Counsel’ Robert S. Mueller III was.  NOTHING BUT CRAP.  Meanwhile, Senator Maggie Hassan, DS-NH, considered to be most at risk in next year’s elections, blasts the Biden regime’s economic policies as being bad for the Granite State.  Wise up, Joe.  Even members of your party are preparing to swim against the current.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Two far-left Democratic-Socialist senators, “Crazy Mazie” Hirono, Hawaii, and “Creepy Cory” Booker, New Jersey, are planning to set up a ‘new caucus’ in the haloed halls of Congress (yeah, right), the BIPOC- Black, Indigenous, and People of Color caucus.  Wow.  Big deal.  ONLY Democrats who are ‘black, indigenous, and people of color’ will qualify while Republicans who identify with those same groups will be kept at arm’s length as though they have B.O.  What a load of crap.  Still, look at the two losers setting it up and we mean LOSERS, with a capital “L.”  Elsewhere, H.R. 1 is stuck in a Senate committee.  We hope it remains there as though it’s in a tar pit.
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: National Security News– The federal government is easing restrictions in 12 states with which to combat the gasoline shortages thanks to the cyberattack on the Colonial pipeline that runs from Texas through 16 other states ending up in Maine.  Yet, the feds do not seem to want to address the hack, claiming it’s a confidential business matter.  Uh-huh.  Experts claim that the cyberattack exposes the lack of required defenses protecting pipelines such as the Colonial pipeline.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

As we said yesterday, manager and father Murray Wilson was keeping the Beach Boys at a frenetic pace.  The band’s fourth album, “Little Deuce Coupe,” came out on October 07, 1963, and was a repackaging of sorts of the band’s hot rod songs plus loads of other new tunes.  Brian Wilson was writing at a lightning pace and the tunes were all great to be sure.  Featured here are “Little Deuce Coupe,” “Be True to Your School,” “Shut Down,” “Spirit of America,” and “A Young Man is Gone.”  The band features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and Alan Jardine (rhythm guitar and vocals), a neighborhood friend like Marks.  This is a wonderful album one we know everyone is going to enjoy so zip on out and add this one to your collection- we think you will be extremely glad you did.  Enjoy.

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

[ii] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] 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.

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

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

[vi] We hope to present the music of KISS sometime in the late 2020s. 

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

[viii] See earlier footnote.

[ix] In late 2019- early 2020, the World Health Organization says the COVID-19 strain of this Chinese-engineered POS disease was NOT transmissible between human beings…until it was.

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

[xxi] Late in the afternoon- and this is a good one- Newsmax ran a Chiron crawl that said, “The Biden administration, (i.e., the regime), is ordering construction on the border wall to begin again.”  Say what?  We cannot believe that mixed-up, befuddled, stumbling, bumbling, drooling old Joe Biden has reordered construction on the wall again.  Say what?

[xxii] Interestingly enough, while lunatic members among the House Democrats continue calling for an end of Israel, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi came out and blasted Hamas, the POS terrorist organization that needs to be eliminated from the face of the planet.  Wow.  Didn’t know “Mumbles” had it in her; still, once the AOC Suicide Squad begins tuning “Mumbles” up, she may very well reverse her statement.

[xxiii] President Donald J. Trump released a statement today in which he said he expects to see Liz Cheney become the next paid commentator on CNN or MSNBC.  She will be removed from office in the primary race next year in Wyoming.

[xxiv] Not sure when we will do the music of Jay-Z.

[xxv] We hope to do the music of the Go-Gos one day.  They were awesome.

[xxvi] We hope to do the Foo Fighters when we do Soundgarden, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, and maybe even Korn.

[xxvii] Not sure as to when we will do Carole King?  Perhaps in 20 years or so.

[xxviii] We definitely want to do the music of Todd Rundgren and Nazz as well as Aerosmith.

[xxix] We look forward to doing the music of Ike and Tina Turner one day. Maybe she will be included as a solo act.

[xxx] For the hell of it, we may be doing the music of the Monkees sooner- these guys deserve it.

  71. 2017 Wednesday: To the delight of environmentalists everywhere, the U.S. Geological Service releases a study claiming that some glaciers in Montana have receded by 85-percent over the past half-century.  No wonder imbeciles such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the world is coming to an end soon.  Sadly, the Sun is the sole driver of all climatic changes throughout the entire Solar System.  Conversation and fighting pollution is indeed important but the Earth- and other planets- have all gone through periods of climate change throughout the history of said Solar system.  Meanwhile, to the ‘horror’ of Democrats, President Donald J. Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).
  72. 2018 Thursday: Following Iran firing missiles into Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria, the IDF lights up Iranian targets in Syria with 70 missiles, blowing up numerous installations and other military infrastructure.  Of course, Iran claims Israel started the fight.
  73. 2019 Friday: The United States raises tariffs on $250 billion of Chinese imports, a jump of 25-percent, following the collapse of trade talks between the United States and the communist nation.  Meanwhile, Uber becomes a publicly traded company on the New York Stock Exchange on this date.
  74. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 continues causing problems for the nations of the world what with 4,097,158 confirmed cases, 282,495 confirmed deaths, and 1,402,882 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,362,715 confirmed cases, 80,562 confirmed deaths, and 208,344 confirmed recoveries which is good, the recoveries that is.  Breaking down the three states in which the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors, California comes first.  In the Golden State, there are 66,773 confirmed cases and 2,745 confirmed deaths but no mention of recoveries.  In Hawaii, we have 732 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 561 confirmed recoveries.  In Washington state, there are 16,891 confirmed cases and 931 confirmed deaths but like California, there is no mention of confirmed recoveries.   
  75. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 159,527,685 confirmed cases, +549,998, 3,315,351  confirmed deaths, +8,678 and 138,098,049 confirmed recoveries, +71,473.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,506,648 confirmed cases, UP 22,997 from yesterday’s reporting, 596,116 confirmed deaths, UP 308,[viii] and 26,497,996 confirmed recoveries, UP 58,284.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ix]   
  76. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,304 chi-vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, the 46th president is shy 182,305 deaths.      
  77. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,759,618 confirmed cases, 62,314 confirmed deaths, and 2,003,503 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,272,102 confirmed cases, 35,785 confirmed deaths, and 1,853,131 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,267 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Northern Marianas Islands, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands become states: they have 170 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  78. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,957 confirmed cases, 6,378 confirmed deaths, and 831,620 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Nigeria, a place overrun with far too many ‘princes’ all-in need of U.S. senior citizens’ life savings: 165,419 cases of the virus, 2,065 confirmed deaths and 156,297 confirmed recoveries.[xi]     
  79. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,742.82, DOWN 34.92 points (-0.10%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,401.86, DOWN 350.38 points (-2.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.43, DOWN 44.17 points (-1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.85 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.011%).  The price of GOLD is $1,835.50 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.44%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,249.50 per troy oz, -16.00 (-1.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,952.91 per troy oz, +26.40 (+0.90%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 15.18 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, a buck equals 10,154.00 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.33 of theirs.[xv]       
  80. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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