  57. 2015 Thursday: For the second time in three years, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds Obamacare in a 6-3 decision, outraging most Americans but causing the Obama Administration to dance the jig.  This is not right and yet, no one—including the Republican Party—will fight against it.  What do the Obamaists have on Chief Justice John Roberts? 
  58. 2016 Saturday: After the new government of Taiwan refuses to accept the One-China Policy and bow down to the commies in Beijing, the Chi-Coms sever communications with the brave island.  They must bow down and kiss the ground the Chinese Communist Party tells them to kiss.  F**k them.  IF Donald Trump wins in November, he will defend Taiwan.  If the Democrats win, it’s ‘adios amigos.’

  62. 2020 Thursday: Inexorably, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu continues marching around the world.  In the United States, Democrats gleefully recite all the polls showing “Pro-China Joe” Biden with an insurmountable 14-point lead, in many battleground states, as well as across the nation.  It’s all over, folks, according to the leftists, “NO point going to the polls.”  My, my, my, I guess we shall see.  Here are the global stats for the COVID Crisis (thank you, communist China): 9,494,571 confirmed cases, 484,155 confirmed deaths, and 4,782,910 confirmed recoveries.

  71. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Border arrests top one-million during Fiscal Year 2021.  Wow.  Next, by our count, today is Day #94 that ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge and voila, like a maggot appearing on a dog turd, she showed up in the El Paso sector and blamed the problems along the border on- you guessed it- President Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, once in El Paso, perhaps the slowest crossing point for the illegal alien tidal wave, she chose to blast the GOP instead of offering competent fixes for the border crisis.  Dimwit.  Speaking of “Kooky Kamala,” former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan says that the ‘vice president’ won’t accomplish a thing at the border.
  72. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Canadian leader Justin Trudeau says that Pope Francis should apologize on Canadian soil for what happened in Catholic-run First Peoples’ schools where numerous unmarked graves have turned up.  Mr. Trudeau, those Catholic nuns running the schools most likely were Canadian Catholic nuns so you should stop while you are ahead, doofus.   If you wish to see true persecution and discrimination against the indigenous peoples of North America, look no further than Canada and Mexico before you start sniveling about the United States’ treatment of Native Americans.
  73. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The filthy city by the bay- San Francisco- is going to require ALL city employees- 35 thousand of them to be precise- to get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  Whether they like it or not!  (Seems like we have heard this before from Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom when he was mayor of Frisco and was marrying gays at city hall.  It was against the law back then and he blew it off.  He told his critics that ‘whether you like it or not, it’s gonna happen so get with the program bigots.”  What a lovely fellow.  Going to be amazing watching him go down in the recall election.
  74. 2021 Friday I: Health and Medical Alerts– What’s up with Joe Biden?  Not only does he say black people are too ignorant to get by in life without help from Uncle Joe, now, Hispanics are, too, because- and this is a good one- according to the drooler-in-chief, “they won’t get the vaccine because they fear being deported immediately afterward.”  WTF, Joe, you aren’t deporting anyone now so who is fearful of getting the vaccine and then getting placed aboard the southbound Border Patrol bus and sent back whence the f**k they came?  (Note- what the hell is up with this bigoted POS claiming to be president, flinging out all sorts of racist comments sans any kind of pushback?  Where are all these RACE WARRIORS fighting against bigots, racists, and white supremacists?)
  75. 2021 Friday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– The state senate in Pennsylvania has approved a bill requiring a constitutional amendment with which to codify VOTER ID in the state’s founding documents.  Excellent.  In Georgia, both Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger are pushing back against the unlawful overreach of the Department of Justice threatening to trash their new voting laws.  President Donald J. Trump says that citizens of the Peach State should sue their state government over the crooked, ‘rigged election.’  Amen.  What amazes us is the fact that the Georgia voting rights law is less strident than say the ones in New York or in Colorado and yet, that little trollop, Kristin Clarke, the little racist heading the civil rights division at the Justice Department could care less.  And you ask why WE believe the 2020 Election was stolen?  NO one in their right mind would vote for this crap, no one.
  76. 2021 Friday K: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I–  Former Minneapolis Police Officer received a sentence from Judge Peter Cahill today of 270 months in prison.  The prosecution was seeking 30 years while the defense was seeking probation.  The judge issued his verdict and in a 20-plus page addendum added his reasoning in writing so that everyone would be able to see and understand his thought processes on the verdict.  (Note- almost immediately, people outside the courthouse were wailing and moaning.  STFU already, George Floyd’s family is now fabulously wealthy so they most likely are pleased that erstwhile son George took one for the team).  Elsewhere, the union head of prison employees says that the Bureau of Prisons is facing tough decisions without proper funding in the upcoming budget.
  77. 2021 Friday L: Popular Culture News– A new poll says that 3 out of 4 respondents believe it’s unfair for women to be forced to compete with mentally deranged young boys and men claiming to be girls.  Only one person out of four believes that girls should be forced to compete with males.  Look, we have offered some fixes for this problem.  First, IF boys want to be girls, then they should undergo full transition from male to female meaning everything gets snipped off and you have undergone at least a year to get the testosterone out of your system.  Second, IF girls must be forced to compete with un-snipped boys and young men, girls should be allowed to dope as this will even the playing field.  Third and final alternative, just create a third category of sports: TRANNY SPORTS.  We believe everyone would watch TRANNY SPORTS because who doesn’t love a good ‘freak show?’
  78. 2021 Friday M: California State News– California’s government is asking ALL Californians NOT to charge their electric vehicles during Peak Hours.  Hmmm, what can go wrong with this debacle?  Well, if you lived in a town like Paradise, California, which burned down more than 20,000 acres back in 2018.  People were trapped in the town what with only one or two roads out of the area which were both ablaze.  The death toll was frightening but imagine how much worse it could have been had people been reliant upon EVs.  We will drive gas-guzzling cars to the day we die because we will never bow down to the Green Meanies.
  79. 2021 Friday N: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1671 has a $50 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 17, 20, 42, 45, 65, and Mega 12.  Out of 49,933 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $12,402.
  80. 2022 Saturday: Today marks Day #521 of the illegal Joe Biden regime.  We tick off the minutes every day until we can see the return of the legitimate President Donald J. Trump to his rightful position in the White House.  This is WHY the fake news media, the criminals in the Democratic-Socialist Party (and among the RINO wing of the GOP), and the street thugs in Antifa and Black Lives Matter continue pursuing the freedom fighters of the nation by vilifying and ridiculing them.  Ridicule all you want.  The time is coming and it’s coming soon.  Stick around and discover the truth along with all of us.  You will be glad you did (including the traitorous scum trying to topple the country and sell it out to the Chi-Coms).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every now and then, a movie soundtrack or cut from a movie soundtrack breathes NEW LIFE into an older band.  The song, “Kokomo” from the Tom Cruise movie, “Cocktail,” was just such a track and suddenly, the Beach Boys had their first Number One hit since “Good Vibrations” several decades earlier.  The band went into the studio and came out with a new album, “Still Cruisin’” that came out on August 28, 1989.  The album featured the same lineup as the previous album but this record was far better.  We hope you will investigate it to your exacting standards but we suspect that you will enjoy this album as much as we do.  Check it out ASAP.  You will be glad you did.

  63. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.227 per gallon, $2.962 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.625 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other location- Minnesota: $2.858.  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- Lesotho: $3.766 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,413,747,338,681 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 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).[xxii]
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, today is Day #85 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border calamity and not to have shown up for a single day’s work on the job.  Still, President Donald J. Trump will be visiting the Texas-Mexico border with Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, on June 30.  Many are speculating as to whether the laughing jackass border czar will rush down to the border for a quick photo op or won’t show up thereby proving our point, she is little more than a low IQ, empty pantsuit, the former ‘mattress’ of California Democratic Party bigwig, Willie Brown.  Ah, well, speaking of Governor Abbott, the patriotic Texas governor said that President Donald J. Trump set a ‘high mark’ for control of the southern border.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Meanwhile, One America News shared the latest stats today concerning the border cataclysm: (1) Cost this day of caring for millions of illegal aliens: $585,083,840.  (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $182,502,932,480.  (3) Total numbers of illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 1,870,509.  (4) Estimated total number of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 35,870,508.  Note, we have said since 2009 at the blog’s inception that the total numbers were 35-50 million; now, we believe we have 75-100 million river-swimming, fence-climbing, and/or desert-crossing illegals in the U.S.  IF we deported ALL the illegals gobbling away at the benefits of being an American, rents and mortgages would precipitously drop, wages would go up, our students would become better-educated and would move through the educational system at a faster pace, Social Security and Medicare would be strengthened, and there would be far fewer Americans drawing unemployment and welfare checks.  There would also be less crime, fewer drunken driving fatalities, less rapes- especially of minors, fewer break-ins, less shop-lifting, you name it, our country would be in such better shape, it’s difficult to comprehend until you start comprehending it.  Yet, they want them here which to us verifies the veracity of the Replacement Theory.  Still, we say, BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  Update- “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is sending law enforcement officers to Texas and Arizona to help defend the southern border.  God bless him!
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Fred Fleitz, CEO of the Center for Security Policy, made the witty observation that the ‘Europeans LOVE decrepit old Joe Biden’ because ‘America is back.’  America is back meaning the U.S. will be footing the bill while the Europeans are allowed to renege on their obligations.  Speaking of Joe Biden overseas, the summit between he and Russian President Vladimir Putin failed to go the distance today.  Instead of going the full five hours promised by the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ it went about half that.  President Putin held a press conference first and ripped the U.S. leader a new one in subtle and witty ways while Joe then came out, held his, and we must say, the Aduhelm must have been working well today because we would give his press conference a C+ grade.  (Note- we don’t expect to see the feeble old perv for about a week now as he tries to recover from this challenging trip).   The two leaders apparently agreed to a return to the arms control treaty negotiations (all the while the Chi-Coms[xxiii] continue building a massive arsenal) as well as to the exchange of diplomats once again.  Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, said it was ‘way too early for Joe Biden to be meeting with President Vladimir Putin.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, says that the ‘new system for checking his citizens’ status for the Chi-Vi vaccine are NOT a vaccine passport.  (Good- because we are not going to get this crap anyway- see you in November, governor).  Next, a new report says that at a pop-up vaccination site in New York City, medical personnel carried out 899 ‘jabs’ using defective vaccines.  Say what?  Yet another reason to avoid this crap.  Elsewhere, the U.S. government has spent more taxpayer monies buying 14 million Johnson & Johnson vaccines for overseas export.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is ‘yet to get a response from either the National Institute of Health (NIH) or from Health and Human Services on his questions about the China Virus.  Senator- you won’t get a peep from either the NIH or HHS.  Next, brave scientists are calling for investigations into various ‘scientific journals’ that dismissed the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab leak theory.’  Excellent.  ‘Follow the science,’ folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris apparently trying to force a far-left agenda into the American economic system.  Not good, folks, not good.  Next- and this is the best one of the day- senile old Joe Biden is encouraging Americans to report radicalized family members, friends, and neighbors to the authorities so the RACE POLICE can swoop in and spirit them away in the dead of night to one of their black site secret prisons.  This smacks of the Gestapo’s Nacht und Nebel policy by which political dissidents disappeared during the dark of night.  Wow.   Meanwhile, the Biden regime releases its first list of top diplomatic nominees for overseas deployment.  Wonder where Rahm “Dead Fish” Emanuel will go?  Japan doesn’t want the POS.  Finally, Joe Biden is reversing yet another Trump Era policy by providing increased protections to tranny students, i.e., mostly ‘chicks with dicks’ students, what we used to call ‘exotics.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News– When reporters asked fumbling Joe Biden if he STILL THOUGHT that Russian President Vladimir Putin was a ‘killer,’ the usurper in the White House did his best “Kooky Kamala” Harris imitation and broke out in maniacal laughter before forgetting the question.  Friends, this is embarrassing to have a mentally-incapacitated dimwit in the White House.  This is, indeed, the SHAME of our country.  Speaking of our national embarrassment, Joe Biden claims to have given President Putin the ‘what for’ during their short meeting.  Question: when everyone returns to the United States, will the U.S. Congress demand that Joe’s interpreters appear before congressional committees and tell the lawmakers what was really said and how poorly Joe’s performance was?[xxiv]  Remember, after President Donald J. Trump met with his Russian counterpart, Democrats were demanding the interpreters testify to exactly what was said during the two leaders’ private meeting.  (Note- we don’t expect this will ever happen).
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger feeling intense heat down his backside is now going to investigate the missing ballots transfer documents and chain of custody.  From what we hear, there were more illegal ballots in Fulton County, Georgia, than anywhere else in the state and it’s clear that if an HONEST and IMPARTIAL audit is conducted, we will learn the truth.  We await more information…
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– New reports suggest that law enforcement recruitment is way, way down, while retirements are skyrocketing.  We imagine many law enforcement officers could find employment in Arizona and Texas, especially if those two states are going to continue fortifying their frontiers and creating their own statewide border patrols.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News I– New York City finds itself being consumed by a self-made problem: in midtown Manhattan, tens of thousands of ‘urban outdoorsmen’ have set up tent cities.  Wow.  Next, the House GOP seeks a review of BIG TECH’S close ties to the Chi-Coms.   In other news, Texas Democrats are launching a last-ditch effort to stop the Constitutional Carry Bill becoming the law of the Lone Star State.  Screw the little wimps. Elsewhere, Chicago Mayor Lori “The Loser” Lightfoot is seeking to halt alcohol sales after midnight.  Uh, what will this accomplish?  People will buy their liquor at 11:59 P.M.   Finally, Pennsylvania Democrat Rep. Madeleine Dean, 4th congressional district, is NOT going to seek the seat of outgoing RINO Senator Pat Toomey.
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, proposes changes to Dem-backed voting bill newly renamed from the “For the People Act” to the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” which means it’s still the same old shit, repackaged, and returned to the shelf.  NO one buy this stinking piece of crap bill.  Meanwhile, Rep. Greg Steube, R-FL 17th congressional district, working on behalf of the family of Ashli Babbitt says information on her shooting death at the U.S. Capitol Building during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, is difficult to come by.  He is seeking answer as to whom the Capitol Hill police officer who shot her dead is and the circumstances as to WHY he shot her, an unarmed woman, attempting to climb through a broken window.  Moving on, GOP House and Senate members return to Washington, D.C., to hold their weekly conference.  Republicans- how about this: how about demanding answers as to WTF the Capitol Hill protesters are still locked up, mostly in solitary confinement?  IF you don’t defend these people, one day, the government will come for you.[xxv]
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Noted UFO filmmaker Jeremy Corbell says that when the UFO report comes out later this month, it will reveal uncomfortable truths for the American people.  Mr. Corbell told Rob Schmitt on Newsmax that the New York Times has said that the report will leave out the possibility of the technology being seen is a secret U.S. military program much less a Chi-Com or Russian program.  That will leave us with but one simple truth: it’s from somewhere else, NOT of this Earth.  Look, if it were Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, or North Korean, do you think they would not already be ruling the planet?  Of course it’s from somewhere else and that means there is little to nothing we can do about it except await its arrival.  Elsewhere, SpaceX supposedly ignored an FAA warning regarding the launch of its Starship SN8 launch in December 2020.  We are sure Elon Musk had good reasons to blow off the FAA.
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Big Tech News– Amazon.com has introduced its new surveillance system to grocery stores.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have the Super Lotto Draw #3569 with a $55 million jackpot on the line as well as the Powerball Draw #855 with a $40 million pot on the line.  Stay tuned for tonight’s results…okay, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 01, 06, 21, 38, 39, and Mega 10.  Out of 147,354 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $16,603 apiece.  The tickets were sold at (1) Shell in Visalia, CA 93277; (2) Sunrise Market and Gas, San Diego, CA, 92102; and (3) Ronnie’s Market and Deli, Stockton, CA 95204.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 19, 29, 34, 44, 50, and Powerball 25.  In California, out of 40,139 winning tickets, the highest winners were 21 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $555 apiece.
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Sports News– NBA star, point guard, Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns is in COVID-19 protocols at the moment.  Not sure as to when he will be able to return.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Observation of the Day– Friends, there is BUT ONE WAY to STOP the tidal wave of illegal aliens pouring across the southern border and that is, the GOP must make a tactical decision with which to aid the overall strategy in combatting Joe Biden’s crimes.  We must make the tactical effort to reach out to the illegal aliens who are here, to make it appear that we are going to bring them into OUR FOLD.  We must make the Democrats believe we are recruiting illegals to become future GOP voters like the Democrats recruit children for immoral purposes.  We must enlist, recruit, and dragoon illegal aliens into becoming solid GOP members as once the Democrats realize they are losing on this battlefront, the trains, planes, buses, automobiles, and even empty freighters will be running 24/7/365 to get illegal aliens out of the country.  Once they begin shipping them out, we can throw the ones who helped us aboard those outbound modes of travel in the same way once the Indian Wars were over, General George Crook threw the Indian scouts onto the trains carrying the beaten Native Americans to the reservations.  It is a matter of saving the country so let’s make some tactical decisions NOW so our strategy can become reality at a future date.
  79. 2022 Thursday: Stick around and discover the events of the day along with us…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Mike Love was the next Beach Boy to release a solo album, “Looking Back with Love” on October 08, 1981.  While Mike has sung some of the most well-known Beach Boys tunes, his songwriting talents were not always as good as the Wilson Brothers or Alan Jardine or Bruce Johnston, thus he gets panned by the critics.  Mike also was not as forward-looking as was say, Carl, in that he favored performing the ‘golden oldies’ while Carl and Dennis pushed the band to move forward into the future.  Still, fans of Mike Love ‘love’ the album which is why we have it here for your enjoyment.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  We think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  55. 2020 Saturday: The Chinese Bat Flu continues causing problems around the world but such is communism: they either released it on purpose or are so inept that no other country around the world should trust them to do anything above fifth-grade level science.  Here are the global stats for today: 6,855,858 confirmed cases, 398,321 confirmed deaths, and 3,071,403 confirmed recoveries the last number of which, compared to deaths, is exceptionally good.

David Ige- unlike California’s Gov. Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Washington’s Gov. Jay Inslee reports FULL figures.  Here we go: 664 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 614 confirmed recoveries.   Finally, in the Evergreen (Ever Communist) State, here are the stats: 23,442 confirmed cases, 1,153 confirmed deaths, BUT NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.

Currently, Joe is shy 165,193 deaths

  63. 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 $4.218 per gallon, $2.854 in Florida, $3.957 in Hawaii, and $3.600 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Idaho: $3.275.  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- Botswana: $3.453 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,375,2445709,029 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.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.  The third nation owning much of our debt is Brazil- they own $300 billion.  Yesterday, we said that Brazil was number three, apparently, the United Kingdom holds more than they do with $368 billion.[xviii]
  64. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  We do our best to keep track of this so here is today’s assessment: ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the catastrophe, no, the calamity occurring on our southern border and the ‘laughing hyena,’ “Kooky,” has yet to make an appearance there in 76 days.  (Note- we say that were she in the professional foodservice business and didn’t show up on the first day, we would have terminated her worthless ass.  Just saying).  One America News updated their figures on the ongoing border disaster.  Here we go: (1) Cost to U.S. taxpayers on this day: $568,861,120.  Next, (2) Cost of caring for this blitzkrieg of illegals at this point as 2021: $171,527,815,168.  Imagine if this money went into rebuilding our economy, the one the Chi-Coms and the Democrats conspired to TRASH?  Wow.  Next, (3) the numbers of wet***ks who have crossed so far this year: 1,758,022.  Finally, (4) here are the number of illegals in the country as said by One America News: 35,758,024.  (Note- we have said the dwindling number as far back as 2009 was 35 million with a high of 50 million or more; well, we believe the sparse number is now around 50 million with a high of 80-85 million.  These people are sucking away at our resources.  We must deport all of them NOW.  Anyone who disagrees can go f**k themselves. 
  65. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The citizens of Budapest, Hungary, and across that fabled nation are taking to the streets in protest of the Chi-Coms’ planned building of a Chi-Com university with which they can continue spreading their cancerous ideology.  We stand with the citizens of Hungary and every other nation that has been subjected to the harsh tyranny of communism in their fight to remain free.  NO CHI-COMS.  Not now.  Not ever.  Boot them and their Belt and Roads crap project out of every nation (and you wonder why our numbers are currently in the crapper once again.  Oh, well…)  In other news, a nebulous tie between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Hunter Biden continues to emerge as we now know that lobbyists in their employ reached out to Ukrainian oligarchs so they could obtain meetings with Mrs. Clinton for a certain price, of course. 
  66. 2021 Sunday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information–  Things continue getting worse for Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci by the day.  We now know that Fauci’s organization- the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, aka NIAID- reportedly gave the Wuhan Institute of Virology $826,000 to study the Horseshoe Bat viruses and to accomplish Gain of Function tasks.  Thus, we have the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is calling on the compromised Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci to resign.  NOW.  In other interesting news, Judge Jeanine Pirro on her Fox News Channel program yesterday shared a video in which, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci back in early 2017 PREDICTED that the (Trump) administration was going to find itself confronted with a medical challenge the likes of which we hadn’t seen.  Amazing how the minute doctor was able to prophesize the coming of the global pandemic, almost as though he had advance notice.  Wow.  The deeper we dig the worse filth turns up.   Fauci was in the ‘anti-Trump camp’ from the start.  This story will one day shock the entire world.
  67. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– Yesterday, during the GOP convention in the Peach State, the GOP censured Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO, while the convention was ongoing.  Wow.  (Note- former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA 9th congressional district, should seek this job in 2022).   Next, crumbling Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-C, says that he is ‘not going to relinquish his pandemic emergency powers.’  This guy most likely will be gone come November; he still wants to stick it to the citizens of his state including fellow Democrats.  Speaking of asinine state chief executives, Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, pitches a new plan with which to provide unemployment benefits to part-time workers without jobs.  Wow. Love throwing around taxpayer money even though you won’t reopen your state.  What is wrong with this picture?   Finally, the U.S. Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Karen Gibson says she is more ‘fearful of cyberattack than she is of another January 06, 2021.’  Amen.
  68. 2021 Sunday J: New Category!  Moron News– New York’s shame, Rep. Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district (Joe Crowley, when are you going to take back your old seat?) said something truly stupid, truly, truly stupid- ‘In order to stop violent crime, the answer is to build fewer prisons and jails.’ Folks, this dimwitted horse’s ass never fails to disappoint, she will show her stupidity day after day after day and without being prodded to do so.  In reward, we will no longer call her by her professional name of ‘Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ but will go with her birth name of ‘Sandy “The Fly” Cortez.’
  69. 2022 Monday: How many cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu will see one year from last year?  The numbers last year were less than this year’s tally so far.  However, it’s an election year so this year, the numbers are going to be far higher…it’s the only way the Dems can win…

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

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

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

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

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

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 566,404 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  59. 2015 Thursday: The Federal Aviation Administration exempts Amazon.com from commercial drone flight prohibitions, which allows it to flight test delivery drones.  However, due to the amount of time it took to approve them, their drone fleet grew older, and they had to reapply for a new exemption.  Meanwhile, as ISIS continues spreading terror to the borders of other nations surrounding Syria, Iraq says the scumbags have murdered at least 52 Iraqi police officers working along their shared border with Syria.

  61. 2017 Sunday: Once again, members of the so-called “religion of peace,” Islam, in the form of ISIS launches suicide bombings against two Egyptian Coptic churches, one in Tanta and the other in Alexandria, killing 44.  Then, in Mogadishu, Somalia, other members of this ‘peaceful faith’ carry out a suicide car-bombing that kills at least 17 and wounds scores of others; Al-Shabab claims credit.  Elsewhere, the Trump administration begins deploying naval assets towards the Koreas following missile tests by Kim Jong Un, the Brave Leader of that Godforsaken country.   The country also finds itself back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism
  62. 2018 Monday: Illinois junior Senator Tammy Duckworth, Democrat, becomes the first sitting U.S. senator to give birth while in office.  Congratulations!  Next, U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde Smith, R-MS, entered the world’s greatest deliberative body on this date.  Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac[ii] undergoes change yet again what with the firing of guitarist/vocalist Lindsay Buckingham and by replacing him with Neil Finn and Michael Campbell.  Elsewhere, the Israeli government is investigating a video that just happened to pop up showing Israeli soldiers cheering the death of a Palestinian terrorist shot dead by an Israeli sniper.  The kill shot went through the Gaza border fence and took out the thug.  Since when can warriors not celebrate the death of an enemy?  Elsewhere, the U.S. State Department says that North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is displaying a willingness to discuss ‘denuclearization’ with the U.S.  
  63. 2018 Monday A: Meanwhile, the FBI swoop down on President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen as they search for evidence of illicit payments from the Trump campaign to porn star, Stormy Daniels.  Cohen would flip on his boss but could not give federal prosecutors anything of value.  Next, comedian Bill Cosby’s retrial begins today.  The comedian is hopeful a new trial will clear him of all charges which he says are BOGUS.  Doping women and then doing them?  Come on, he’s ‘America’s dad.’   
  64. 2019 Tuesday: For their part in the pro-independence movement, a court finds nine leading members of Hong Kong’s “Umbrella Movement” guilty on public nuisance charges and sentences them to prison.   Meanwhile, as the college bribery scandal continues gathering steam, federal prosecutors indict another 16 people involved in the scam.   Elsewhere, a youthful suicide bomber attacks a market in the Sinai, blowing up several policemen and several other civilians while wounding at least 27.  The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.
  65. 2020 Thursday: The Chinese-engineered COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues claiming lives and trashing the global economy.  As of today, we have 1,600,427 confirmed cases of this mess encircling the globe what with 95,699 confirmed deaths but 354,464 confirmed recoveries as well.  In the United States, there are 464,865 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 16,498 confirmed deaths and 25,343 confirmed recoveries.   The economy continues suffering due to the mitigation Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx continue demanding of the American people which is insane.  Some places are not suffering whereas some Democratic strongholds such as New York state and New York City continue racking up the losses.  Meanwhile, the Stock Market finishes UP which is awesome with the DOW Jones Industrial Complex closing at 23,719.37, up 285.80 (1.22%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,153,57 up 62.67 (0.77%), and the S & P closed at 2,789.82, up 39.84 (1.45%).  Real Clear Politics claims that President Trump’s approval ratings are +47 and -52.  Polls also claim that Vice President “China Joe” Biden is leading President Trump.  Bulls**t.  Finally, Chef Itzi Nakamura of the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believes that when the COVID-19 mess ends, the United States must reimplement the Two-China Policy, recognizing Nationalist China, aka Taiwan, as an equal to the mainland if not the legitimate ruler of the mainland.
  66. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS I– Various news agencies on the left (i.e., Fake News) are trying to clean up what Joe Biden said yesterday regarding all the restrictions he is going to slap on lawful gun owners.  Even CNN had to lay out the fact that the infamous ‘gun show loophole’ does not exist due to all the rules and regulations emplaced upon such events.  Folks, Joe Biden has NO clue what he is doing, saying, and damned sure thinking.  What the gun-grabber Democrats fail to understand is the American people are NOT going to hand over their firearms, their ammunition, and their accessories.  None of us are.  Federal law enforcement is going to find themselves in similar situations as the British did in the months leading up to the Revolutionary War, shooters behind every bush, every tree, on every rooftop, in cars, in back alleys, everywhere so any attempt at entering our homes and taking our firearms away is going to meet with disaster.  As Charlton Heston once said, “You can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.”  Remember this: there are MORE of us than there are of THEM.  Joe Biden did mumble that gun violence (which is committed by criminals, Joe) is a ‘public health epidemic or crisis’ or whatever it was he said.  Joe- tell blue state governors and mayors to turn the cops loose and go after illegal gun owners and crimes.
  67. 2021 Friday A: JOE BIDEN NEWS II– After Hunter Biden went on Jimmy Kimmel and told the host that the ‘laptop’ issue is little more than a red herring, news comes out that the laptop the computer store owner handed over to the FBI is indeed Hunter Biden’s laptop.  Hunter Biden who loves indulging in drugs and narcotics and sleeping with hookers and skanks and also has problems disposing of firearms properly should be doing time in federal prison.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s budget contains $131 million with which to combat domestic terrorism.[iii]
  68. 2021 Friday B: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Antonio Mayorkas is meeting with leaders and immigration advocates in Texas as the illegal alien invasion continues ramping up.  NO one seems to want to do what must be done.[iv]   Elsewhere, the Department of Homeland Security reports 19,000 illegal alien brats crossed the southern border in the month of March alone.  The cost to the American taxpayers per week is reported to be $60 million to house just the illegal alien minors.  People, load them on empty jetliners, fly them into San Salvador and Guatemala City and let THEM deal with getting them back to the parents.  Enough is flipping enough.  Next, Biden’s Border Coordinator Roberta Jacobson is stepping down from her post.  Apparently, it’s too much for her.
  69. 2021 Friday C: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II– the White House says there’s no basis to close illegal alien holding pens along the southern border over rumors of sexual abuse and rape.  His Health and Humans Services Secretary Xavier “Abort them All” Becerra is down there investigating the allegations.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration is begging non-governmental business to help mitigate the southern border crisis.  Hmmm, sounds like MORE bulls**t.  Elsewhere, Congressman Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the border crisis.’   Finally, Congressman Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district says that ‘Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris are terrified of visiting the border’ and seeing the horrendous misery they have caused.  Shame on them.
  70. 2021 Friday D: COVID-19 NEWS– the United States is sending three field hospitals to Argentina to help them deal with their COVID-19 pandemic problems.  Elsewhere, a mass vaccination site in Colorado using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine[v] had to stop vaccinations after inoculating 1,700 people as 11 became extremely ill and 2 ended up in the hospital.   Meanwhile, after Joe Biden labeled Texas political leaders for behaving like Neanderthals over their lifting of Joe’s demands for a mask mandate, COVID-19 is still under control.  In other shocking news, 246 fully-vaccinated residents in the Wolverine State tested positive for the ‘VID and 3 of them died.  Whoa.
  71. 2021 Friday E: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS– Joe Biden (well, the voice in his ear) is calling for the establishment of a commission to investigate expanding the U.S. Supreme Court as well as ‘maybe emplacing term limits on the sitting justices.’  Sounds rather like the plan “Prancing Pete” Buttigieg- now the U.S. secretary of the Department of Transportation pushed during the primary campaign.   
  72. 2021 Friday F: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I–  the United Kingdom and nations are around the world are mourning the death of Prince Philip- the Duke of Edenborough and Queen Elizabeth II’s husband.   Prince Philip was two months shy of hitting the century mark.  Many are pondering as to whether the person formerly known as Prince Harry and his boss Meghan Markle will attend the funeral.  IF we were the royal family, we’d tell Harry, “You can come but leave that nutty bitch at home.” In other news that broke late last night, Joe Biden is considering sending some U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea- a Russian flipping lake, for God’s sake– to make a show of force to Vladimir Putin who will soon be invading the Ukraine.  Also, the Chi-Coms said to the Biden administration that ‘if U.S. warships continue passing through the Straits of Taiwan, we could soon see Chinese naval assets patrolling the Gulf of Mexico.’  Wow.  Joe, Joe, Joe, WTF are you doing?  GOP senators say, ‘Joe Biden’s defense bill sends the wrong message to our enemies and allies.’
  73. 2021 Friday G: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– South Korea has agreed to help Iran recover assets frozen within their country if the mullahs will allow a South Korean tanker to go free.  Elsewhere, the Zionist Organization of America strongly opposes the Biden plan to lift ALL sanctions on the jihadist country of Iran without anything in return.  Others believe that Iran atomic talks could set the stage of U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken having a face-to-face with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.  The U.S. is making serious overtures to the murderous regime in Tehran if the mullahs will permit the United States to return to brown-nosing Ayatollah Khamenei’s gnarly, wrinkled ass.  Finally, La Soufriere, a dormant volcano on the eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent decided to come alive today.  Dormant since 1979, citizens of the island were surprised to say the least when smoke and ash began  pouring out of the peak and rolling down the sides onto nearby villages.  Government began evacuating people in the area.
  74. 2021 Friday H: DEMOCRATIC PARTY NEWS– The Wisconsin State Supreme Court rebuffs Republican lawmakers and won’t let them clean up the voter rolls.[vi]  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, says it’s time for the nation to ‘stop with the divisive politics.’  Joe- it’s YOUR party doing all the s**t talking.  Elsewhere, James Carville is expressing dismay that the Democratic Party is embracing identity politics and cancel culture.  Next, a recent report says that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was considering retirement before Donald J. Trump won the presidency in 2016.
  75. 2021 Friday I: REPUBLICAN PARTY NEWS– Senator Thom Tillis, R-N.C., underwent surgery for his prostate cancer diagnosis.  No word on when he will return to his duties.  Next, former Senator Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, slams the ‘disinformation campaign’ the Democrat Party is running against the new election laws in the Peach State.  Kelly, everyone knows the Democrats are LIARS.  Elsewhere, we learn that a Super PAC is backing Alaska machine RINO Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski which they are touting will defeat President Donald J. Trump’s plans to oust her.  This is going to be fun.  Murkowski must be humiliated and booted from office like the scurrilous POS she is.  Speaking of RINO garbage, former House Speaker and all-around loser John Boehner says in his new book (big deal) that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears full responsibility for the Capitol Hill Riots on January 06, 2021.’  Most now understand that those ‘riots’ were the biggest FALSE FLAG OPERATION ever run in this country’s politics.   Mr. Boehner: “F**K YOU.”
  76. 2021 Friday J: TECH AND BUSINESS NEWS– Netflix acquires streaming rights to all upcoming Sony movies.  Meanwhile, due to the massive tax hike plan in New York state, numerous businesses such as Jet Blue, J.P. Morgan, Chase, Citibank, and numerous others are all abandoning the state ahead of the promised tax increases.  Imagine if Tallahassee, Tampa, or Miami became the NEW financial capital of the world?  Empire State Democrats should be wanting to lynch Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov because once lost, those cash cows will NEVER return.[vii]  
  77. 2021 Friday K: ECONOMIC NEWS– McDonald’s is hiring for new positions across the country with 25,000 alone in the Lone Star State.   Meanwhile, Impossible Foods is in talks to go public sometime within the next several months through an IPO.  The company is valued at $4 billion.  Elsewhere, while under review, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is permitting the Dakota Access Pipeline to remain in operation no matter what sniveling activists say.  Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos and Amazon are dancing the jig today as Alabama Amazon employees voted 2-to-1 against unionization.   Next, Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida are suing the Biden administration to get the cruise line industry back up and running.  After all, if everyone follows CDC guidelines, WHY can’t the cruise lines return to business?
  78. 2021 Friday L: 2020 ELECTION NEWS, FRAUD, THEFT, AND CORRUPTION NEWS– The Arizona election audit is moving along at a snail’s pace but all because of the actions of Maricopa County Democrats who seem to feel they answer to NO ONE other than themselves.  We would hope that Governor Doug Ducey emulate the actions of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, GOP, by firing obstinate Democrat election officials who will not hand over all information related to last year’s elections.   Elsewhere, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger refers three counties for ballot drop box probes.   New Hampshire also is ordering an audit of 2020 Presidential Election votes after reams of evidence came to light showing that a fairly sizeable portion of Republican votes mysteriously switched to Democratic votes not only for president but for some down-ballot races.
  79. 2021 Friday M: NATIONAL NEWS– Texas is implementing a $4.3 million plan with which to mitigate the homeless problem which mostly is in the liberal bastion of Austin.    Next, President Donald J. Trump blasts Governor Asa Hutchinson over his veto of the transgender-tranny-chicks with dicks- ban.  He says, “Bye-bye, Asa.”  Speaking of the 45th president, he gave his endorsement today to Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL.[viii]  Elsewhere, rapper Earl Simmons, aka DMX, is dead at age 50 from a drug-induced heart attack.  His 15 kids by different baby mamas were all trying to get in and see their beloved daddy before he gave up the ghost.
  80. 2021 Friday N: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 134,038,180 confirmed cases, +1,108,348, 2,904,554  confirmed deaths, +19,153, and 76,188,672 confirmed recoveries, +752,117.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,201,770 confirmed cases, UP 83,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 565,507 confirmed deaths, UP 1,060, and 118,883,459 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix] 
  81. 2021 Friday O: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 236,964 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  82. 2021 Friday P: 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: 3,691,435 confirmed cases, 60,142 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,111,807 confirmed cases, 33,968 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 30,673 confirmed cases, 470 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 375,408 confirmed cases, 5,367 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Colorado, the state that reaped a windfall when Major League Baseball stripped the mostly black city of Atlanta of the All-Star Game and relocated it to the mostly white Rocky Mountain State: they have 476,630 confirmed cases, 6,200 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[x] 
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 835,641 confirmed cases, 6,280 confirmed deaths, and 824,748 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Ecuador, home of the Cuyabeno Wildlife Preserve: 341,649 cases of the virus, 17,115 confirmed deaths and 290,314 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  84. 2021 Friday R:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,800.60, UP 297.03 points (+0.89%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,900.18, UP 70.88 points (+0.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,128.80, UP 31.63 points (+0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.34 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,744.310 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.33 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.20 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.05 per pound, 0.00 (0.12%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,639.24 per troy oz, +14.44 (+0.55%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,100.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.34%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.15.     In Djiboutian Franc, one greenback equals 177.50 and in Danish Krone, a buck equals 6.25.[xv]  
  85. 2021 Friday S: 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 $3.926 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.724 in Hawaii, and $3.335 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.016.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,151,463,572,701 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  86. 2021 Friday T: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk is being added to New York’s WACB lineup.  Elsewhere, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, is preparing for a major speech at the Women for America First Summit even though Democratic enemies are trying to destroy him.  We believe the man is as clean as the wind-driven snow.  Elsewhere, former Hennepin County forensic pathologist Lindsey Thomas who retired in 2017 testified at Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s trial today that the cause of death for George Floyd was the deprivation of oxygen that occurred because of the way Chauvin and the other officers restrained the perp.  She said she arrived at this conclusion from watching the video.  Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas Baker more or less said the same thing.  
  87. 2021 Friday U: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Next, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear signs a partial ban on “NO KNOCK” warrants such as the one that led to the death of EMT Breonna Taylor when police burst into the apartment she shared with her boyfriend.  The boyfriend began shooting first and Ms. Taylor died in the subsequent crossfire.  The officers involved in the mishap were cleared but fired and Taylor’s boyfriend who was facing loads of charges had them dropped.  Finally, Black Lives Matter continues demonstrating it’s built atop a foundation of deceit as a cofounder of the group- Patrisse Khan-Cullors just bought a $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon, which many critics are pointing out ‘ain’t exactly the ‘hood.’[xviii]    
  88. 2021 Friday V: Also, stay tuned for the Mega-Millions Draw #1649!  Here are the numbers: 22, 26, 27, 58, 66, and Mega 12.  Out of 105,034 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $26,262.
  89. 2021 Friday W: The 66th U.S. Attorney General of the United States Ramsey Clark died in New York City, N.Y., at age 93.  A Democrat, he served under President Lyndon Baines Johnson from March 10, 1967, to January 20, 1969.  It is interesting to note that he also served on fallen dictator Saddam Hussein’s defense team when the tyrant went on trial for his life.
  90. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned to action following a bout with cancer and reformed his band.  The subsequent release is “The Midnight Ramble Sessions, Volume I” (February 01, 2006). Joining the drummer/vocalist, were Little Sammy Davis (vocals/harmonica), Fred Scribner (guitars), and Michael Merritt (bass).  Davis is the vocalist and front man for the group seeing as how Helm was recovering from throat cancer which is amazing because the band roars through a set of blues tunes that leave one’s head ablaze and ears a-smoking.  We hope that you will investigate this one to your heart’s content and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and enjoy.  It’s amazing, of that we guarantee.

[i] 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.    Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[ii] 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.  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.

[iii] We hope that a generous portion of this money goes into investigating the rash of BLACK Democrats assaulting Asian-Americans.  Sadly, for the Dems, very few whites are committing the crimes they would like the world to believe they are committing.

[iv] We encourage militarizing the southern border by moving military bases along the southern frontier.  We also support laying in minefields and other human, vehicle, boat, and even air obstacles to prevent illegals from swarming into the country.  We believe they should seed the Rio Grande River with baby alligators scooped up from the Deep South and relocated west just as we support Black Ops going into northern Mexico and eradicating all human traffickers through clandestine operations.  Without control of the border, both the United States and Mexico will collapse with Canada following along behind the two countries within 5-10 years.  This is an example of a true existential crisis and unless we begin behaving like we want to save our country, our nation is going to be lost.

[v] We oppose this vaccine due to tissues from aborted fetuses being used in both its study and its manufacturing.

[vi] What more proof does one need to determine that yes, indeed, the scumbag Democrats STOLE the 2020 Elections.  They robbed President Donald J. Trump’s second term from him (they will rue the day they did not give him his second term because when he returns in 2024, he will be so on top of his game that the Democrats are going to cringe in the corners like the beaten wives and brats they are.  Moses Scharbug III has said, “Julius Caesar never wanted to become dictator, his political enemies forced him to become one and man, oh, man did they rue the day they did.

[vii] Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that the ‘tax plan in New York state,’ the one providing $15,000 checks to illegal aliens and felons- is “absolutely insane.”

[viii] President Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, says the odds President Trump running for a third term in 2024 is above 50-50.

  55. 2004 Monday: Terry Nichols went on trial for his life in the infamous Oklahoma City bombing.  Already serving a life sentence for his conviction on federal charges, a jury found him guilty of 161 state murder charges, but once again cheated death because the jury couldn’t agree on his sentence.
  56. 2005 Tuesday: Rod Price, the electric slide guitarist of the band Foghat[vi], died on this date in Wilton, New Hampshire, due to a heart attack suffered while falling down the stairs at his home.  He was 57 years-old.   This man made the slide guitar into a virtuoso instrument giving Foghat a sound that made them monsters of the world throughout much of the 1970s and into the early 1980s.  IF you haven’t heard this band yet, you must seek them out ASAP.

  58. 2007 Thursday: As the Iraq War continues to drone on and on and on, the Out-of-Iraq Caucus in the U.S. Congress finds themselves worked into a corner.  They planned to vote against a $124 billion military funding bill that would send more money to both the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on the promise the country would find a way with which to remove the U.S. from these endless meatgrinder wars.  Good luck with that.
  59. 2008 Saturday: In Rome, an amazing incident occurs when Pope Benedict XVI baptizes Madgi Allam, the most well-known Muslim cleric in all of Italy.  Allam has decided to turn his back on Islam and become a Roman Catholic.  Will riots break out around the world?  Events such as this usually cause such mayhem.

Redoubt, an Alaskan volcano commences erupting.  Elsewhere, in the United States, newbie President Barack Hussein Obama is seeking a strategy with which to extradite the United States from the continuous war in Afghanistan.  Good luck with that, sir.  President Obama tells the American people that the Bush-Cheney policies have made the world less-safe.  We concur, the world is a much more dangerous place due to all these regime-change wars neocons love to launch.
  61. 2010 Monday: In a big to-do for the Obama administration, President Obama will be signing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA or more well-known ACA- into law.  The Republicans are preparing to file a bill with which to repeal it if it does become law, but this BS from the GOP would continue until well after Donald J. Trump became president in early 2017.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: Governor Dennis Daugaard, Republican -South Dakota, signs an abortion bill that requires women to wait 72 hours before undergoing the procedure and to receive counseling.  Meanwhile, Hall of Famer NFL player Lawrence Taylor pleads guilty to misdemeanor sexual assault and receives a sentence of six years-probation.

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

  82. 2021 Monday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 219,704 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another three-and-a-half-weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Centers for Disease Control says that California ranks 44th in Chi-Vi vaccine equity.  F**k equity, just distribute this crap to whomever wants it and for those that don’t, stop guilting them.  Meanwhile, AstraZeneca reports that U.S. data shows that their vaccine is 79-percent effective.  
  83. 2021 Monday J: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,643,252 confirmed cases, 57,679 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,834 confirmed cases, 454 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 357,443 confirmed cases, 5,224 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- U.S. Virgin Islands: currently, they have 2,767 confirmed cases, 25 confirmed deaths, and 2,653 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 828,672 confirmed cases, 6,102 confirmed deaths, and 807,341 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Sweden, home of pissed-off Greta Thunberg: 744,272 cases of the virus, 13,262 confirmed deaths but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  
  84. 2021 Monday K:   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,731.20, UP 103.23 points (+0.32%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,377.54, UP 162.31 points (+1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,940.59, UP 27.49 points (+0.70%).  The price of GOLD is $1,737.80 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.82 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.20%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,186.50 per troy oz, +2.50 (+0.21%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, 0.00 (-0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,186.50 per troy oz, -4.50 (-0.38%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.00 per troy oz, +45.00 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.19 per barrel, -0.40 (-0.61%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.57.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Bahraini Dinar, one greenback equals 0.38.  
  85. 2021 Monday L: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.882 per gallon, $3.597 in Hawaii, and $3.317 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,082,074,861,052 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  86. 2021 Monday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– George W. Bush political advisor Karl Rove is planning on holding a fund-raiser for politically dead man-walking Congressman Adam Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district.  That’s Karl Rove for you.  The guy is probably thinking he’s going to trot out Jeb Bush for another go in 2024.  One thing we can guarantee you, the era of voting for the lesser of two evils– meaning voting for a RINO instead of a Democrat has ended. If we’re going to go socialist, then we’re going to go socialist so what difference does it make if it’s next year or in three years or whatever?  NO MORE RINOs.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s national security adviser says it wasn’t a mistake to call Vladimir Putin a ‘killer.’  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the battle of mail-in ballots is raging in the Florida statehouse.  We don’t want mail-in ballots.   Next, the push to make the federal district of Washington, D.C., is beginning in the U.S. Senate.  Washington, D.C. was NEVER meant to be a state.   Finally, accusers of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo claim the Lov Gov is interfering in the harassment probe into his scandalous activities and actions.  The man is a groper.
  87. 2021 Monday N: CRIME NEWS– In Boulder, Colorado, a lone gunman carrying a rifle shot and killed 10 people- including a law enforcement office- at a King Soopers Grocery Store.  The shooting began around 2:30 P.M. and within minutes, a line of emergency vehicles and first responders ringed the store.  Law enforcement then went in and subdued the scumbag.  He’s in custody.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice has announced that it is considering hitting the Oath Keepers with SEDITION charges for their part in the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots.  The question is, WILL the Justice Department file similar charges against Antifa and Black Lives Matter as both groups infiltrated Trump supporters and engineered one of the largest FALSE FLAG operations in modern U.S. history.   
  88. 2021 Monday O: In other crazy news, RINO Bill Kristol, one of the all-time great phonies is supporting making Washington, D.C., a state while also advocating the invasion of Cuba and making that one a state, too.  This worthless phony has never seen a Third World War for which he didn’t advocate, and NO one should waste time listening to this dumb ass.  The time for jingoism ended when at the end of the Mexican-American War, the U.S. didn’t absorb the land between our southern border all the way down to Columbia just as after the Spanish-American War, we didn’t keep Cuba, too.  Next thing you know, Bill Kristol is going to want to make Afghanistan a U.S. commonwealth or at least a territory.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Stick around…

  43. 1996 Saturday: In their heavyweight fight at the 50-second mark of Round 3 of a scheduled 12-round championship bout, Mike Tyson scores a TKO on Frank Bruno to win the WBC heavyweight boxing title of the world and to put his pro record to 44-1.  As for Bruno, this would put his record to 40-5 and would prove to be his final bout.  
  44. 2003 Sunday: Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein warned that if Iraq were attacked, it would take the war anywhere in the world “wherever there is sky, land or water.”  President George W. Bush gave the United Nations one more day to find a diplomatic solution to the standoff.     Elsewhere, American activist Rachel Corrie, 23, lost her life when an Israeli bulldozer crushed her as she was trying to block the demolition of a Palestinian home in the Gaza Strip.  No one asked the leftist to be there, and it should be clear to all that she was pretty damned stupid to put herself between the home of a terrorist and an Israeli bulldozer.  No sympathy for her.

  47. 2006 Thursday: Global law enforcement authorities discover a worldwide child pornography ring after finding information in online chat rooms that leads to the arrests of 13 Americans, 10 Canadians, several Australians and at least 2 Brits.  Lock ‘em up.
  48. 2007 Friday: Islamic jihadists go berserk in Anbar Province launching a chlorine attack (remember: NO weapons of mass destruction in Iraq) killing at least 2 Iraqi police officers and wounding or sickening hundreds more.  That’s the so-called ‘religion of peace’ for you.   Elsewhere, communist China adopts the People’s Republic of China Property Law, a law that covers the creation, ownership, and transfer of property in mainland China. 
  49. 2008 Sunday: With the collapse of Bear Stearns over the housing crisis, the world economy finds itself on shaky footing.  This past Sunday, the Fed enabled JP Morgan to buy Bear Stearns in an effort to prevent the collapse of the nation’s fifth largest investment bank from collapse.  Sadly, it does not seem to have prevented the ongoing implosion.   JP Morgan bought the company, once valued at more than $20 billion for bargain basement prices of $270 million.  What a bargain.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms go berserk in Tibet, cracking down on protesters demanding freedom.  Word has it the Chi-Coms murdered at least 80 people in cold blood and scooped up loads of others for their concentration camps.  Basketball shoes anyone?  The Dalai Lama accused the Chin of waging a cultural genocide against his people.  No wonder the Chi-Coms want his hide.
  50. 2009 Monday: Outrage continues to grow over collapsing AIG’s decision to pay out hundreds of millions of dollars in bonuses to its top managers and CEO.  This leads to outrage in the street and a decision by the Obama White House to discover a way to halt this outrage.  It matters not that the executives were promised these bonuses whether the company turned a profit or not.   New York State Attorney Andrew Cuomo announces he is going to subpoena AIG so he can get some answers before his kangaroo court.  Elsewhere, following the bailouts of the big banks by the Obama administration, their thanks is to lessen lending, not increase it.  Wow.
  51. 2010 Tuesday: NO matter what liberal Westerners demand, Israel announces that it’s going to move forward with the construction of new settlements.  Meanwhile, as Palestinians continue protesting in Jerusalem, Israeli authorities crack down on them leaving at least ten or more injured.  Stop fighting with the Israelis, you dumb asses.  Meanwhile, a drone strike ordered by the droner-in-chief, President Barack Hussein Obama, kills 9 people and injures many more in Pakistan.  No one knows if they were terrorists or not.  No wonder the Muslim world hates the United States.
  52. 2011 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announces that she will NOT serve a second term should President Obama win reelection for a second term.   Elsewhere, the CIA continues conducting drone strikes across Afghanistan and Pakistan.  What the hell is going on?
  53. 2012 Friday: In North Korea, the dictatorship announces that to honor the upcoming birthday of founder Kim-IL Sung, the nation will launch a satellite that will supposedly study agricultural croplands and natural resources.
  54. 2013 Saturday: In response to a possible nuclear attack on the U.S. mainland by North Korea, the government announces it will invest $1 billion to put into place ground-based missile interceptors.
  55. 2014 Sunday: In a referendum deemed illegal by both the European Union and the United States, voters in the Crimea vote for secession from the Ukraine and a coupling with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
  56. 2015 Monday: Andy Fraser, bassist of Free, dies on this date in Temecula, California.  The legendary bassist was 62 years-old.  As a musician, he played his instrument as though he was playing a lead instrument.  Listen to the live album by Free, listen to his incredible solo playing on “Mr. Big,” among others and see that he was among the greatest bassists ever, in the same class as Jack Casady of the Jefferson Airplane or Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead.  Absolutely stunning to say the least.
  57. 2016 Wednesday: Setting in motion one of the most contentious Supreme Court issues between Republicans and Democrats, President Barack Hussein Obama nominates Merrick Garland to fill the seat of deceased Republican Associate Justice Antonin Scalia.  Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says that the voters will decide in November’s presidential election as to whom should have the honor of nominating the replacement for Scalia.  Of course, the Democrats go bat crap crazy.  Eventually with Donald Trump winning the presidency, the 45th president will nominate Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacant seat.
  58. 2017 Thursday: The anti-Trump ‘Resistance Movement’ strikes again what with not one but two federal courts blocking the president’s second travel ban.  Elsewhere, a judge in Maryland issues a temporary restraining order against President Donald J. Trump’s revised Muslim ban.
  59. 2018 Friday: At age 89, Li Ka-Shing- Asia’s second wealthiest person (and Hong Kong resident) announces his retirement from the world of business.  Elsewhere, as the United States continues reaching out to North Korea, South Korea and the U.S. jointly announce that they will scale down annual military drills so as to draw the North into direct talks.
  60. 2019 Saturday: In Mabini, Philippines, a dead beached whale is discovered to have 88 pounds of plastic refuse in his guts, including 40 pounds of plastic bags.  Yikes.  Meanwhile, the Yellow Vests Protests against French President Emanuel Macron enter their fourth month as protesters angry over rising energy prices due to Green Fascism continue to drive the people insane.  Fires erupt, stores and cars are burned, the police take to the streets and fire tear gas at the protesters.  It’s a mess.
  61. 2020 Monday: Thanks to the Wuhan Virus out of Wuhan, China, panic continues gripping the world.  The markets have been in freefall, with a Bear market that began last week continuing.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 23,185.62, down 2,997.10 points.  The S & P 500 is down 324.89, closing at 2,480.64.  The NASDAQ is down 970.28 and closed at 6,904.55.  Total confirmed cases of COVID-19 around the world are 167,457 with 6,471 confirmed dead and 76,851 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, medical researchers continue trying to increase testing kits as well as experimental vaccines to fight this foreign scourge.  In the U.S., there have been 4,017 positive tests for coronavirus what with 35,840 negative tests and another 1,691 pending tests.  The United States is behind in testing but folks, you can test negative one day and positive a day or two later.   
  62. 2021 Tuesday:  FOREIGN NEWS- Intelligence analysts now report that both the Russians and their Iranian lackeys interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election to undermine and defeat Donald Trump while pushing Methuselah Joe Biden into the White House, someone easier to control and who would put America LAST rather than FIRST as President Donald J. Trump did.  No one is screaming and wailing like a bunch of banshees over 2020 Election interference while all the while they still snivel that ‘Trump stole the election in 2016 with Russian help.’  Wah, wah, wah.  
  63. 2021 Tuesday A: In other FOREIGN NEWS- the ‘Joe Biden White House’ is confused as to WHY Kim Jong Un won’t respond to feelers put forward by the ‘46th president.’  Kim’s sister, Kim Yo-Jong is urging a hardline stance against the ‘Biden administration’ seeing as how a stumbling Joe Biden on the campaign trail called her brother- the Supreme Ruler- a thug and that he wouldn’t deal with the North Koreans if they did not denuclearize.  Now, ‘Chi-Com Joe’ is puzzled as to why Kim won’t respond to him other than to demand he halt the WAR GAMES with South Korea.  Perhaps it’s this: the Iranians called Joe Biden a second-class idiot today, not even a first-class dimwit.  That sucks and yet, Joe is still giving the Iranians several billion dollars.  Gee whiz.   Meanwhile, former Bolivian President Jeanine Anez has entered prison to do a four-month stretch for supposedly trying to engineer a coup against socialist thug Evo Morales.
  64. 2021 Tuesday B: Border Disaster News- The ‘Biden administration’ announces plans to house at least 3,000 illegal alien brats in a downtown Dallas, Texas, convention center.  Incapable of stopping the invasion along our southern border, Biden officials are busing the illegals all over the country and dumping them out in the streets saying to community leaders, ‘it’s on you.’  Many communities run these illegal aliens out of town on rails.  We don’t want them; we won’t care for them.  Meanwhile, moderate (almost a RINO) Florida Senator Rick Scott has authored a bill that will provide amnesty to so-called DREAMers in exchange for funds to complete the border wall.  White House?  Crickets…
  65. 2021 Tuesday C:  Border Disaster News Pt. II- Joe Biden’s immigration plan does NOTHING to curb the illegal alien invasion.  (Note- he has NO plan.  Goldie).  Next, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas defends his crap-assed performance of taking care of illegal alien minors along the border.  His plan calls for them to be sardined together in worse conditions than anything President Trump ordered.  They sleep on cement floors, they get showers once a week, the food is shit, the babes are crying at night for their mothers, and this POS scumbag says he’s doing a ‘fantastic job.’  Impeach this SOB.  Regarding Secretary Mayorkas, this loser is passing the buck by saying, “We are repairing the system the last guy disbanded.”  Sure.  Speaking of immigration, leading House Dems say there’s a bleak outlook when it comes to passing a coherent immigration bill.  (Note- this is the ONLY policy you need- build the wall and deport them all.  Period.  Goldie).   In other ‘border news,’ 10 Iranian nationals have been arrested along the southern border.
  66. 2021 Tuesday D:   Border Disaster News Pt. III- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. Va., becomes the first top-level Democrat to declare the travesty of the southern border to be a “MAJOR CRISIS.”  Thank you, senator, now do something to stop the invasion.  Meanwhile, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing everything he can to evade having to do something about the border catastrophe.’   Meanwhile, former New York state Congressman Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing whatever he can to deflect away from the predicament he created on the southern border by not stopping the tidal wave.’  Impeach Biden Now. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday E:  Political News Pt. I- House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, lets the Democrats have both barrels and then a reloaded both barrels over them trying to politicize the U.S. military, the National Guard, and federal law enforcement.  They are recruiting trannys, gays, and unfit people to be the frontline in defending our nation, even offering FREE sex-change surgeries for enlisted men, women, and ‘things.’[vii]  We are going down.  (Note- looks like ‘Groping Joe’ Biden is doing everything he can to HELP the Chi-Coms).   Next, people are asking at Day #56 of the Biden administration, WHEN is ‘President Biden’ going to address the American people?  The country’s citizens are growing worried that they have elected a vegetable to the highest job in the world.   We concur. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Political News Pt. II- The ‘Joe Biden tax plan’ continues facing increased pushback from the GOP as it’s a social-re-engineering plan, one that will transfer wealth all over the place while killing jobs, putting more people into the street, and destroying society.  Speaking of the Democrats, they claim to want to bring in Republican input for their ‘infrastructure plan’ (Note- their Green New Deal plan- Goldie) but so far have not met with Republicans.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is still trying to unseat Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district, a woman whose race was certified and who has been serving in the House since taking the oath on January 3, 2021.  Speaker Pelosi is trying to OVERTURN her lawful election.  We must stop Mumbles.   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is doing EVERYTHING he can to circumvent the U.S. Congress.’
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: My Pillow’s Mike Lindell is launching several countersuits against the crooked Dominion Voting Systems company out of Canada, accusing them of ‘racketeering’ as they try to intimidate him into silence.  We hope you get those scumbags, Mike, they have loads of explaining to do.   Next, President Donald J. Trump calls the Washington Post, aka WAPO, ‘an example of media travesty’ after it lied about the conversation, he held with Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger earlier in the year.   Regarding the Peach State, a judge in Georgia says he may order unsealing of the absentee ballots so investigators into election fraud in 2020 can perform a REAL audit.
  70. 2021 Tuesday H:  Democratic Party News, Pt. I: Democrats in the U.S. Senate on the Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee are holding hearings on ‘housing in America.’  We know there is a shortage of housing right now because of the pandemic’s halt on new home construction.  What the Democrats seek are multi-family home dwellings so they can force more people into living with one another which is wholly un-American.  Yet that is what they do, they seek to bring Section 8 housing into a neighborhood near you.  Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers are pushing back against Democrats by seeking to include natural gas and nuclear energy as part of our energy creation sources with which to augment unreliable renewable energy sources.  Democrats want wind and solar period.   Finally, Democrats are pushing Senate Dems to get rid of the filibuster which is putting pressure directly atop moderate Democrats like Joe Manchin, D-W. Va.  (Note- the RNC is planning a counter-media blitz against the Democrats’ blitz on HOW GREAT the Chi-Vi Relief Bill is).
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: Political Correctness News- Columbia University is going to put on six different graduation ceremonies- a) Native American; b) Asian; c) Latino; d) LGBTQIA+; e) gringos; and f) first generation students and low-income students.  Wow.  Martin Luther King Jr. would be rolling over in his grave.  For God’s Sake, people!  Meanwhile, Project Veritas released video of Facebook execs discussing how to avoid governmental oversight, rules, regulations, and what they deem to be interference.  Sadly, for Facebook, 48 states currently have monopoly lawsuits going against FB.  
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: U.S. ‘Enemies’ News- On his first trip to Asia, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, Democrat, takes it to the Chi-Coms for their regional coercion of their neighbors.  Good for you but wait- don’t YOU have ties to the Chi-Coms, Secretary Blinken?  We believe you do.  This is all smoke and mirrors.  Next, a recent Gallup poll says that MORE Americans now view the Chi-Coms as a major threat following the lab-engineered pandemic they created and then released.   Meanwhile, the bastion of ‘freedom’- Russia- says it’s thinking of banning Facebook from their soil.
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: Popular Culture News- this year’s Grammy Awards were among the worst ever what with a drop from 18.7 million viewers last year to a pitiful 7.9 million this year.  If you like watching hoochie mamas singing about that ‘Wet Hot Pu**y,” then good for you but people can see slut-bags seven days a week walking down the street.   Next, the “Amityville Horror” killer Ronald De Feo Jr. died in the joint at age 69.  Elsewhere, after Sharon Osbourne exercises the chutzpah to defend Piers Morgan on “The Talk,” the show goes into hiatus because the black chick, Sheryl Underwood’s feelings were hurt.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo News- there is speculation that ‘seven Cuomo judges- will rescue him from being removed from office.  The investigation into “Killer Cuomo,” however continues as his accusers are undergoing depositions.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden won’t demand that his fellow groper “Killer Cuomo” be ejected from making COVID-19 calls to encourage people to rush out and get the vaccine.   Sexual deviates always stick together.
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom News- Little Gavin is now out there crowing that ‘if he gets a chance, he will appoint a black woman- ANY black woman to fill Senator Dianne Feinstein’s seat.’  We didn’t know that Senator Feinstein was going anywhere anytime soon.  Still, this is what liberals do when confronting the law, they begin promising to donate money to Planned Parenthood, wage war on the NRA, and do everything else liberals love.  Too little too late.   Newsom has awoken to the fact that he is probably going to lose his seat so he releases a commercial in which he blames HIS problems on: 1) the Far-Right; 2) QAnon; 3) Proud Boys; 4) Oath Keepers; 5) Donald J. Trump; 6) Newt Gingrich; 7) Mike Huckabee; 8) conspiracy theorists; and 9) everyone else he can blame HIS disasters upon and then some, i.e., white supremacists, racists, bigots, haters, and insurrectionists.   Michael Reagan says living in California is like in the Germany of the 1930s.  Could not have said it better ourselves.  Thanks, Mike.
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: The National Rifle Association seeks to delay the deposing of its board members as the bankruptcy case makes its way through the courts.  Meanwhile, Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform says that ‘Joe Biden wants to raise tax rates higher than what the Chi-Coms have, especially on corporations, and in so doing will kill wages, destroy jobs, and eliminate retirement savings.’  He also said that ‘increasing utility rates is akin to raising the taxes although it’s not an official raising of taxes.’  By raising corporate taxes, it diminishes the return on investments which will destroy retirement programs.  The government also seeks to legalize marijuana across the country so that it can reap the tax dollars.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: National Guard troops from Guam visited the office of Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R- GA 14th congressional district, because she mentioned the name of the U.S. territory in a speech and referred to it as a ‘foreign nation.’[viii]  She blasted their ‘visit’ as little more than a political stunt.   Meanwhile, scientists are proposing to put a doomsday vault on the moon.   Next, ex-Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin wants George Floyd’s 2019 arrest released to the jury in his trial.   Meanwhile, New Mexico is advancing a bill that will allow assisted suicide for the terminally ill within their state.
  78. 2021 Tuesday P: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 120,505,974 confirmed cases, +657,693, 2,665,597, confirmed deaths, +11,956, and 68,325,205 confirmed recoveries, +293,341.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,719,808 confirmed cases, up 43,163 from yesterday’s reporting, 541,030 confirmed deaths, UP 578, and 115,759,310 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 212,553 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    Note- Sweden becomes the latest nation to put a halt to further use of the AstraZeneca vaccine over pulmonary embolisms and blood clots.  Meanwhile, Moderna starts a study in which, they will inoculate children and study the effects.  Finally, that dimwit, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, “inconvenient truths” came into play with our response to the China Virus crisis.  (Note- the Federalist reports that Democrats want “COVID-19 passports but when it comes to asking for ID at election sites, nyet.”
  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,626,327 confirmed cases, 56,621 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for several days now).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 353,322 confirmed cases, 5,192 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wyoming, aka the Equality State: currently, they have 55,352 confirmed cases, 693 confirmed deaths, and 54,231 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 821,762 confirmed cases, 6,037 confirmed deaths, and 787,893 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Canada, the home of the Guess Who, Bachman-Turner Overdrive, and Rush: 915,868 cases of the old Wuhan Meat Market Malady, 22,519 confirmed deaths and 861,832 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, what’s the point: communist nations ALWAYS lie- you know it and we know it.
  80. 2021 Tuesday R: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,825.95, DOWN 127.51 points (-0.39%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,471.51, UP 11.859 points (+0.09%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,962.71, DOWN 6.23 points (-0.61%).  The price of GOLD is $1,729.40 per troy oz., -1.50 (-0.09%) while the price of SILVER is $25.99 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.07%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,215.40 per troy oz, -3.70 (-0.30%) while the price of COPPER is $4.06 per pound, -0.01 (-0.34%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,498.70 per troy oz, -0.02 (-0.50%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.91 per barrel, +0.10 (+0.15%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.61.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Aruban florin, one greenback equals 1.78.  
  81. 2021 Tuesday S: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.856 per gallon, $3.558 in Hawaii, and $3.281 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,058,245,351,045 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: In some shocking news, a stockpile of commercial grade fireworks blew up in Ontario, California, killing two people.  The Ontario police chief said that officers were called on scene for another issue when the garage blew up killing the two and injuring others.  Next, Joe Biden’s handlers are establishing a commission with which to study packing the U.S. Supreme Court as well as other courts.  In other court news, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI, sent a new letter to the FBI demanding a FURTHER investigation into U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.   Senator Whitehouse- a partisan POS- says the FBI investigation back in 2018 was ‘flawed’ and that witness information went into the circular file.  What a scumbag.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Islamic jihadists attacked locals in Niger’s Tillaberi region killing at least 58 people and wounding countless others.   The people were returning home from a cattle market in Banibangou when the jihadists came racing up on motorcycles and began lighting the startled villagers up.  After they killed as many as they could and left the wounded to die, the reputed al-Qaida “B-team” then set local granaries ablaze in the hopes of causing famine throughout the region.  Time for the French Foreign Legion to arrive on scene and begin exterminating these Boko Haram-loving murderers, rapists, and thugs.
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: NEWS FLASH: In Atlanta, Georgia, 8 people are shot dead at a massage parlor, most of the dead being female staffers.  It appears that happy endings for the night were no more.  The suspect whose image and car were captured on security tape was apprehended more than 100 miles south of the city.  No one knows the motive yet; it could have been fraud, it could have been QAnon, it could have been someone gave the shooter the clap.  We will await further developments.
  85. 2021 Tuesday W: Mega-Millions Draw #1642 with a jackpot of $93 million on the line tonight: 10, 41, 46, 52, 69, and Mega 08.  Stay tuned for results on the winner(s).  Okay, out of 66,472 winning tickets, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $437 apiece.
  86. 2022 Wednesday:  Things are moving so fast that it’s difficult to keep up.  After a heavy news day yesterday, we hope the Unseen Hand manipulating Chi-Com Joe Biden takes it a little bit slower today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Canadian guitarist Robbie Robertson- the main songwriter of the Band- released his first self-titled album, “Robbie Robertson,” on October 27, 1987.  It is easy to visualize that Robertson was the guiding light behind the Band as his songwriting always rises to the top like cream atop milk.  Joining the legendary guitarist/keyboardist/vocalist are Tony Levin of King Crimson on bass, Manu Katché on drums, Daniel Lanois on guitars/vocals as well as guest appearances from Garth Hudson and Rick Danko of the Band, all of U2, and loads of other five-star musicians and performers.  This is a worthy addition to any record collection which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out, give it a good listen, and then add it to your growing collection in the format, condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.

[i] The Soviets would do what communists always do: march their prisoners in and give them lead to the back of the head.  Then, they haphazardly bury the corpses and leave it for others to find.  Russian scumbags.

[ii] Likewise, we expect to offer the music of Alice Cooper sometime between 2025-2027.  Please stay tuned.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Manfred Mann’s Earth Band at some point within the next 5-7 years.  Stick around for the glorious day when we do.  You will be glad you did.

[iv] We hope to share the music of Heart within the next 15 years or so.  Stick around for the glorious, mind-altering day.

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

[vi] Not sure when we will promote the music of Van Halen but when we do, we will also present the music of Sammy Hagar so please stay tuned.

[vii] Jessie Jane Duff, GySgt. U.S.M.C. Retired says the purpose of the military is to break things and kill people, not to serve as some sort of laboratory for left-wing social scientists to transform our society into a freak show.  The U.S. Army is second-guessing its gender-neutral policies after record numbers of young women can’t cut the mustard (but they can always like the jar).  Instead of recognizing the differences between genders and working within that framework, the Pentagon is reducing standards for men so women can score better on their physical tests.  It sounds like it’s getting to be time to move somewhere else because an army of gays and trannys is not going to defend our nation.  Note- this is ALL Barack Hussein Obama’s fault- he’s the one who f**ked up the military.

[viii] Look, about ten years ago, Democratic Congressman Hank Johnson, Georgia, asked military leaders if MORE assets were sent to Guam would the island capsize and sink into the sea.  This moron STILL sits in Congress.  Whatever MTG said is nothing compared to this Rhodes scholar.

74. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2022

37. 1954 Monday A: The Battle for Dien Bien Phu enters its third day with the communists already in control of some of the outlying French infantry posts from the night before. The plan to take Gabrielle will follow the same course as the one used to take several of the Béatrice infantry posts. Dig trenches as closely as possible to the barbed wire protecting the French Union troops following a heavy barrage of several hours, blow the wire, and overrun the defenders.

Somebody get this girl some help.
  72. 2020 Sunday: The Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus continues causing mass panic around the world as food service establishments begin shuttering their doors in many cities around the world.  Meanwhile, people continue swamping stores, buying everything off store shelves and leaving them empty for loads of others.  As of today, these are the facts: around the planet (of course, we have no clue as to what is occurring in China), there are 156,400 confirmed cases.  That’s right, 156,400 confirmed cases with 5,833 confirmed deaths.  As for those who have recovered, there are 73,968 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, so far, ONLY 40 people have died from China’s Wuhan Virus.  Elsewhere, former Vice President Joe Biden and Marxist Senator Bernie Sanders debated one another on CNN with no crowd in the room.  What a snooze fest.  Two cantankerous old WHITE men bashing one another for their poor records.  Tom Perez: listen, YOU POS, put Tulsi Gabbard in the debates, they might draw far better crowds than the crap you are running now.  Just saying.
  73. 2021 Monday: DAY 55 of the Biden Regime- today is a busy flipping day, folks.  Stacey Abrams- failed gubernatorial candidate in Georgia and an engineer of the election fraud in the Peach State in 2020 is encouraging the U.S. Senate to throw the filibuster rule onto the dung heap of history so the Senate can ramrod H.R. 1[vi] through to fruition like a Chi-Com doctor ramming an anal swab up the nether regions of a U.S. diplomat arriving in the People’s Republic of China.  H.R. 1 and the subsequent Senate equivalent would forever alter the way Americans vote; however, it would be entirely unconstitutional so everything would fall atop the shoulders of Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court.  Would he uphold the Constitution or would he, too, throw it atop the trash heap?
  74. 2021 Monday A:  The Nigerian government reports that clashes with Boko Haram or a spin-off Islamist group has led to the loss of at least 30 soldiers.  In other foreign news, Kosovo announces that it is moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem in accordance with its signing of a peace deal negotiated by the Trump administration.   Speaking of this momentous occasion, Jared Kushner expresses hope that the ‘Biden administration’ won’t throw the previous administration’s foreign policy successes- most notably the Abraham Accords- onto the garbage pile. 
  75. 2021 Monday B: The United States Marine Corps apologizes for saying hateful things about Tucker Carlson of the Fox News Channel.  Mr. Carlson had expressed incredulity that the most important things in which, the U.S. military in general and the United States Marine Corps in particular would concern themselves with, i.e., WOKE POLITICS such as sex changes and flight suits for pregnant pilots and the USMC responded with hate speech.  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Oh, the leadership are ALL Obama generals and admirals.  NO wonder Democrats want to continue fighting permanent wars with trannys and gays.  Wow.
  76. 2021 Monday C: Communist China says things are going so well with their economy that they are going to pull their lab-engineered COVID-19 relief stimulus from their public.  Their economy is the ONLY one in the world on a trajectory straight up following the pandemic trashing the world.  As if this wasn’t planned.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Cornell University professors are at odds with one another over ending Chi-Com programs on campus, programs that allow Beijing to sow propaganda (as well as BIG BUCKS) on students and faculty alike.  Leftists hate to give up sources of enrichment for selling out their country. 
  77. 2021 Monday D:  The White House is on the road this week as Joe Biden and Dr. Jill and Kooky Kamala and her husband seek to inform the American people of all the GREAT THINGS the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 ‘Relief’ bill is going to bestow upon them, even though the bulk of the ‘relief funds’ won’t be spent until 2024-2028.[vii]  Wow.  Can’t wait.  Still, the media blitz and all the advertisements are going to wash over the country for the next several weeks.  We hope that Joe Biden will remember where he is.  We also learned today that in order to pay for this hoopla, Joe Biden is going to launch the first major federal tax hikes since 1993- who didn’t see this one coming?   The federal government ‘gives us’ $1,400 in stimulus funds, we pay them back $2,800 in federal taxes.  Awesome.  Keep your money.
  78. 2021 Monday E: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, visits the southern border at El Paso, Texas, with other GOP leaders to view the ongoing crisis, one House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi blames President Donald J. Trump for- what?  How does #45 bear any responsibility for the border crisis other than that he lacked the time to finish building the border wall to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens?   In other border news, Texas Governor Greg Abbot says that ‘the lack of a border coherent border policy other than ‘come on in’ under the Biden administration is 100-percent responsible for the humanitarian crisis at the border.’  Still, Republican state attorneys-general are pushing back against the Biden policies favorable to illegal aliens and NOT for U.S. citizens.   
  79. 2021 Monday F:  In other Border News, Congressman Greg Steube, R-Fl 17th congressional district, tells Newsmax today that ‘Joe Biden is 100-percent responsibility for the humanitarian disaster occurring along our southern border.’   His colleague, Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, R-TN 3rd congressional district, says there is a tremendous crisis on the southern border.  The Washington Examiner reports that ONE illegal alien invader facility holding brats is at 729-percent- 729-PERCENT- capacity and NO one- including little Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is down there shedding tears.  Where is Nancy Pelosi?  Where is “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer?  Where oh where oh where are all the bleeding-heart liberals.  DEPORT THEM ALL.  
  80. 2021 Monday G: Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo toured a vaccination site in the Empire State today and after giving a brief speech, he refused to take any questions from assembled reporters.  “Killer” Cuomo’s ratings are their lowest thanks in part to his sexual mischief of groping women, propositioning women, and other misbehavior as well as the fact that the deaths of between 15,000-to-20,000 seniors in his state rests squarely atop his shoulders.  However, fellow serial groper/molester Joe Biden won’t call for “Killer” Cuomo to resign.  Pervs always stick together.  In an effort to deflect blame from his shoulders, “Killer” Cuomo follows the path fellow sexual deviates like Harvey Weinstein have taken before him.  The crumbling governor calls for $7 billion in NEW TAXES on the wealthy thinking that being a ‘class warrior’ will somehow help him keep his job- Harvey Weinstein is in prison.   Add to this another scandal, this one being “Killer” Cuomo’s Chi-Vi Vax Czar hammering county officials to ‘profess their support of “Killer” Cuomo if they want to obtain COVID-19 vaccines for their citizens.’  Wow.  Not good.  All this has led to the collapse of the governor’s approval ratings.  Cuomo- just flipping go.
  81. 2021 Monday H: In other corrupt Democratic Party news and liberal hypocrisy, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser demands citizens show ID before getting their vaccinations whereas when it comes to voting, showing ID is somehow RACIST.  Good for you, mayor.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, 25-percent of U.S. House of Representatives’ members have not yet gotten their Wuhan Virus inoculations.  We also hear that as China Virus cases continue to rise in prisons across the country, prison guards and staff are refusing to take the shots.  So are we.  F**k those pushing this bogus crap.  Speaking of the Hubei Hooey vaccinations, the state of Illinois is blasting the Biden administration over its ‘equitable rollout of the Chi-Com Virus vaccine.’  Race politics as usual.   Meanwhile, medical professionals like the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci warn that COVID-19 vaccine skepticism will prohibit a return to normalcy.  Screw you.   Finally, little Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook unveils a new plan to help their dimwitted followers find vaccination sites.  Question: WHAT did people do before Facebook?  Answer: they did it themselves.  Note- Facebook is going to ‘label’ all posts regarding the Chi-Com Bat Flu vaccine as either true or false. 
  82. 2021 Monday I: A recent study reports that fewer students plan on attending four-year universities and colleges than ever.  No wonder, private schools typically cost $50,000 per year (and some per semester) while public universities can cost $25,000 per year.  You spend that money and America-hating liberals indoctrinate you.  We can’t blame the young folks for not wanting to go.    In other news, another study says that Smartphones can cause ‘sleeplessness, stress, and anxiety.’  Like we say about Facebook and social media, just stop using the phones.  You will feel so much better.  Next, Elon Musk changes his job description from ‘CEO’ to ‘Techno King of Tesla.’  Why not just call yourself, ‘emperor?’  Finally, actor Matthew McConaughey is going to host a virtual concert for relief for Texas.  
  83. 2021 Monday J: In Portland, Oregon, federal authorities are reinstalling the fencing around the federal courthouse following Antifa and Black Lives Matter human trash trying to burn it down.  The best way to solve this problem is to give them some lead.  That will solve your problems extremely fast and reinstall law and order for the community.  Next, the judge in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd says ‘the timing was poor’ in the award of $27 million to the family of Mr. Floyd before the trial was even underway.  Sounds like IF they convict Officer Chauvin, he will have excellent grounds to overturn the conviction.  We shall see.   Next, two men were arrested in the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick whom many believe was doused with a heavy dose of bear spray and suffered allergic reaction to it.  Next, the FBI says that the Nashville bomber was motivated by paranoia and conspiracy theories and NOT political ideology.  Finally, a Chicago suburb could become the first locale in the United States to award reparations to its black citizens.  What?  Question: was Illinois a slave-holding state?
  84. 2021 Monday K: Washington Post (WAPO) news: first, they admit to MISQUOTING President Donald J. Trump’s conversation with Peach State Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a conversation in which, the president was seeking help in investigating the myriad election fraud evidence.  No surprise there.  Next, WAPO reports that the Iranians are demanding a guarantee that IF they return to the JCPOA, aka the Iranian nuke deal, that a future president cannot overturn it, like say, Donald Trump wins a third term in 2024.  Speaking of Iran, they cannot prevent themselves from sharing with the world that the IRG- the Iranian Revolutionary Guard now has what they call a ‘missile city’ with which to terrorize the entire region.  We say, “Joe- NUKE THEM NOW.”  Next, Myanmar is declaring martial law in various suburbs around the capital city of Yangon.   Finally, India’s parliament is considering a ban of cryptocurrencies, and should it become law, India will become the first major company to ban this new form of wealth.
  85. 2021 Monday L: Senate Majority Leader strikes a deal to fund almost $3 billion for private schools.  In other news of major import, Pope Francis- much to the horror of the LGBTQIA+ community says the Catholic Church cannot BLESS same-sex marriages.  He says the church can welcome the homo community and be inclusive, but they cannot BLESS their unions.  Of course, the liberal community is going berserk, seeking to CANCEL the Roman Catholic Church.  This is WHY liberals want to rewrite the Bible which is bullshit.  There, we said it, it is what it is, gay community.  You don’t like the Catholic Church, go be a Methodist or some other crackpot faith.   Elsewhere, the state of Alabama gives President Donald J. Trump an award, noting that he is one of the greatest U.S. presidents in history, this as his detractors continue to blast him.  His critics are losers.  Next, in San Diego, California, an out-of-control car careens into nine people killing three of them.  Police have the suspect in custody- is he or she an illegal alien or a terrorist?
  86. 2021 Monday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,848,281 confirmed cases, +83,791, 2,653,641, confirmed deaths, +2,063, and 67,895,864 confirmed recoveries, +81,450.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,676,645 confirmed cases, up 42,948 from yesterday’s reporting, 540,452 confirmed deaths, UP 1,534, and 115,489,507 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 211,975 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Note: Joe Biden slams his predecessor’s COVID-19 relief plan and appoints Gene Sperling to manage the $1.9 trillion Xi Jinping Bat Flu plan.  In other healthcare news, Amazon.com Healthcare Services is launching nationwide very soon.  Jeff Bezos will provide healthcare to the American people.  F**k him.

278. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, OCTOBER 05, 2021

22. 1944 Thursday: The air war continues to rage over Berlin as RAF bombers appear over the capital at night while the U.S. Army Air Force conducts daylight bombings. Antiaircraft fire coursing into the sky from the infamous flak towers in the middle of the city account for many of the planes blasted out of the skies while the Luftwaffe gets credit for numerous others. Still, every bomb dropped is a moral victory for the Allies as Hitler and Joseph Goebbels said, “NO Allied bombs would ever fall on the mighty city.”

  53. 2020 Monday:  Following President Donald J. Trump’s roundabout the Walter Reed Medical Center (where doctors are treating him for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu) yesterday, liberals continue wailing and groaning like banshees about his ‘lack of concern for the welfare of others.’  He drove around the block in a hermetically sealed vehicle with Secret Service agents wearing the recommended garb.  He wanted to thank his well-wishers. In New York City, Trump supporters took over 5th Avenue and blasted their support for the ailing president.  Didn’t moronic Governor Andrew Cuomo claim that ‘Trump would need an army if he wanted to show his face in New York?’  Well, there’s your army, you frigging dimwit. C’ est la vie.  Meanwhile, the Presidential Debate Commission is recommending that all participants and guests wear masks at all subsequent debates.  Elsewhere, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announces that she, too, has tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  What is going on?  Who seeded the White House with the Chinese Virus?  Look to the kitchens, investigators, look to the kitchens… Finally, Anthony Scaramucci says that since Trump is sick, he ‘should drop out of the race.’  F-off Mooch!  
  54. 2020 Monday A: Following a weekend of terror over the president’s illness, the S&P 500 futures are beginning to show signs of calm. Good.  Meanwhile, Finland announces that nuclear disarmament talks between the United States and Russia will commence soon.  Where is the flipping Chi-Coms?   Elsewhere, Democratic Party presidential nominee “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues dissing the Green New Deal, saying instead that when elected, he will move forward with his $2 trillion Biden Plan that will jumpstart clean energy over the next four years.  What does AOC and her Squad of lunatics have to say about that?  On Newsmax, Joe DiGenova blasts the Biden Plan saying that in four years, President Donald J. Trump has made us energy independent and that our environment is cleaner now than it was when he assumed office.   
  55. 2020 Monday B: Regarding the Chi-Vi, Ireland says it may enact a second Wuhan Virus shutdown due to rising numbers, 110 per 100,000 citizens.  In New York City, Mayor Bill Di Blasio says he ‘is going to shutdown specific sections of the city where Bat Virus cases are rising,’ neighborhoods that are mostly Jewish.  Say what, Mr. anti-Semitic mayor?  
  56. 2020 Monday C: At 6:39 P.M. President Donald J. Trump walked out the front door of Walter Reed Medical Center.  Although not entirely out of the woods yet as his doctors said, he is on the mend and will be closely watched by physicians at the White House.   Self-proclaimed ‘conservative,’ and Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin, says via Tweet that taxpayer dollars should no longer go to funding the Walter Reed Medical Center and that Maryland should pull the medical license of Trump’s treating Dr. Sean Conley.  And these people claim to be ‘balanced.’
  57. 2020 Monday D: Speaking of the Beijing Bug, here are the numbers for the CHI-VI, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 35,366,134 confirmed cases, +354,812, 1,039,802, confirmed deaths, +4,937, and 24,615,512 confirmed recoveries, +250,950.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu pandemic: 7,546,065 confirmed cases, up 41,043 from yesterday’s reporting, 213,408 confirmed deaths, UP 352, and 4,904,396 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,727.  Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 836,239 confirmed cases, 16,155 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 12,957 confirmed cases, 132 confirmed deaths, and 10,215 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 93,789 confirmed cases, 2,238 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Arizona- currently, they have 221,091 confirmed cases, 5,707 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Doug Ducey for not reporting recoveries; that ain’t right.  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 272,309 confirmed cases, 1,757 confirmed deaths, and 204,355 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at another nation: Kuwait: they have 107,592 confirmed cases of the CHI-VI, 628 confirmed deaths and 99,549 confirmed recoveries.

  59. 2020 Monday E:  Monday Night Football: two games tonight due to Chi-Vi postponement- early game: (15) New England Patriots, 10 (2-2) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 26 (4-0).   The late game is (16) Atlanta Falcons, 16 (0-4) @ Green Bay Packers, 30 (4-0) before the half.  Meanwhile, the Houston Texans, a WINLESS team after going into the playoffs last year fired General Manager and Coach Bill O’Brien after the 0-4 start.  It is what it is but folks, it’s an Xi Jinping Bat Flu year so give ‘em a break…
  60. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 236,593,653 confirmed cases, +481,087, 4,831,604 confirmed deaths, +9,690 and 213,721,839 confirmed recoveries, +557,549.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]   
  61. 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 410,642 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.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop him.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump with 6,564 Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths.  Congratulations, Joe, YOU are IT from this point forward and will be for the rest of your illegitimate time in office.   
  62. 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: 4,662,762 confirmed cases, 69,678 confirmed deaths, and 2,471,122 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,636,318 confirmed cases, 55,622 confirmed deaths, and 2,737,138 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 80,414 confirmed cases, 811 confirmed deaths, and 79,603 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 673,432 confirmed cases, 7,916 confirmed deaths, and 275,537 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Kentucky: they have 702,951 confirmed cases, 8,921 confirmed deaths, and 694,030 confirmed recoveries.[vii]

  64. 2021 Tuesday D: STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,314.67, UP 311.75 points (+0.92%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,433.83 UP 178.34 points (+1.25%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,345.72, UP 45.26 points (+1.05%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $78.85 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.09%).  The price of GOLD is $1,755.60 per troy oz., -5.40 (-0.31%) while the price of SILVER is $22.50 per troy ounce, -0.11 (-0.50%).  The price of PLATINUM is $948.60 per troy oz, -11.20 (-1.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, -0.06 (-1.35%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,906.18 per troy oz., -7.41 (-0.39%).

  65. 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 $4.414 per gallon, $3.047 in Florida, $4.101 in Hawaii, and $3.846 in Washington state.[xii]    Let us look at one other New Hampshire: $3.050.  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 second LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Iran: $0.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,842,422,397,228 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  66. 2021 Tuesday F: AFGHANISTAN CRISIS AND COLLAPSE NEWS- We learned today that following the vaccination of 50,000 Afghans in Afghanistan, the Biden regime is going to restart evacuation flights out of HKIA, people we know little to nothing about but whom the Biden regime wants to seed across the United States.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.  Speaking of the Afghan debacle, Republican senators are demanding a probe into the disastrous Afghan evacuations and resulting carnage at Hamid Karzai International Airport.
  67. 2021 Tuesday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE I- The state of Texas is gearing up for a possible surge of 60,000 illegals in the coming weeks.  Deploy troops to the border and begin shooting them.  A few thousand dollars’ worth of lead will do more than giving Central American nations and Mexico billions of dollars to halt the crisis.  We also must note that today marks Day No. 194 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the mess on the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 101 since her sole visit to the border to do her job.  Where can we find NO SHOW jobs like the one, she has?
  68. 2021 Tuesday H: FOREIGN NEWS-OVERSEAS NEWS I- U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken arrived in France today to soothe over France’s hurt feelings over the loss of its $40 billion submarine deal with Australia.  Meanwhile, not to be outdone by the North Koreans, Russia test-fires its new hypersonic missiles, missiles the United States cannot stop.
  69. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 UPDATES AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION I- We learn today that Pfizer’s Chi-Vi vaccine loses 50-percent efficacy after six months which is why there is a BIG PUSH for perpetual boosters.  We also learned today that ahead of the Xi Jinping Never-Ending Pandemic, the Chi-Coms loaded up on polymerase chain reaction, aka PCR, tests because the communist government knew what was coming down the pike.  Next, a court rules that Arizona cannot apply federal COVID-19 funds to fund ‘anti-mask grants.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday J: HEALTH AND MEDICAL ALERTS- Ahead of next year’s coming retribution against the Democrats in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections, NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins is going to retire at the end of the year.  Many speculate he is doing this so he can avoid being dragged before Congress and forced to answer questions regarding how the Wuhan Institute of Virology received tens of billions of U.S. taxpayer monies to fund ‘gain of function research.’  We hope you won’t get away.  In other oppressive Biden regime-related news regarding the Chi-Vi, the U.S. military is ignoring requests for religious and/or medical exceptions for the vaccines being forced atop U.S. servicemembers.  Stand strong, fellow Americans, stand strong.
  71. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS-RESTRICTIONS-AND AUTHORITARIANISM NEWS- Kaiser Permanente today suspended 5,000 employees for refusing to undergo vaccination with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu inoculations.  Shame.  Elsewhere, the biggest healthcare provider in New York State terminated the employment of 1,400 employees for similar refusals.  Wow.
  72. 2021 Tuesday L: VACCINE MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY) NEWS-(1) Pfizer $42.32 (2) AstraZeneca $59.89 (3) Johnson & Johnson $159.58 (4) BioNTech $250.12 (5) Moderna $332.11
  73. 2021 Tuesday M: MILITARY SUPPLIERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 2) NEWS- (1) Raytheon: $88.72 (2) General Dynamics: $198.16 (3) Boeing: $224.42 (4) Lockheed Martin: $347.75 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $369.88.
  74. 2021 Tuesday N: PPE MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 3) NEWS- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $33.82 (2) DuPont: $70.97 (3) Honeywell: $215.72 (4) 3M: $177.87 (5) Teijen: $1,568.00.
  75. 2021 Tuesday O: ARTIFICIAL (FAKE) MEAT MANUFACTURERS’ STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 4) NEWS- (1) Beyond Meat: $100.67 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.02 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $21.21.
  76. 2021 Tuesday P: BIG BOX STORE STOCK PRICES (FOLLOW THE MONEY 5) NEWS- (1) Wal-Mart $136.62 (2) Lowe’s: $204.27 (3) Home Depot: $329.48 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $446.24 (5) Amazon $3,221.00.
  77. 2021 Tuesday Q: 2020 ELECTION AUDIT- Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO, once again is attempting to give the impression that he is doing his job and is launching another probe into DeKalb County’s handling of the 2020 Elections.  Big deal.
  78. 2021 Tuesday R: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- Joe Biden is going to tour a union facility in Michigan today, touting his Build Back Better agenda and the multi-trillion-dollar spending bills (that always seem to redirect money back into the pockets of Democrats).  The declining leader of the regime says what he is doing will prevent America from losing its edge.  Whoa.
  79. 2021 Tuesday S: POLITICAL NEWS I- We have all seen the depressing video of angry illegal alien political hacks harassing Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the public crapper.  Shameful.  Well, we learn today that George Soros-funded groups are behind the harassment.  These scumbag illegal alien hirelings are going after the feisty Arizona Democrat to force her into supporting the “Build Back Better Agenda” which many of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe they are stupid to understand much less comprehend.  Likewise, other left-wing hirelings are going after Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, trying to force him into supporting this bull crap.  Finally, as the left continues ramping up its efforts to intimidate and persecute their real and perceived enemies, former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich warns them softly that ‘there’s more of us than there are of YOU.’  Amen.
  80. 2021 Tuesday T: POLITICAL NEWS II- Ever-mercurial former Ambassador Nikki Haley says the “GOP needs Donald Trump.”  (Note- she’s still trying to get on his good side).  Meanwhile, a new report suggests that Democrats are losing the voter registration battle in battleground states.  NOT a good sign.  Next, Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says the GOP has a new bill with which to demand accountability from the Chi-Coms on COVID-19.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence is lighting up the left by saying today the Dems use the (FALSE FLAG OPERATION of) January 06, 2021, as a weapon with which to club President Donald J. Trump and Trump-Pence supporters over the head.  Amen.
  81. 2021 Tuesday U: POLITICAL NEWS III- Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, says that all along, the Democrats have wanted combined spending bills.  Elsewhere, third party hack Evan McMullin announced he is going to challenge conservative Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican.  What the hell is up with this bonehead, McMullin?  It’s a waste of money, time, and effort and, by the way, what is wrong with Senator Lee?
  82. 2021 Tuesday V: SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS – Frances Haugen- a so-called Facebook whistleblower, someone we believe is most likely a plant sent by Mark Zuckerberg himself- sat before the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee’s subcommittee Product Safety and Data Security and spilled her guts as to how terrible things are at Facebook when it comes to social media harming young kids and viewing pre-teens as an untapped source to lure in and violate.  Chairman Senator Richard “Dick” Blumenthal, DS-CT, says that the ‘SEC and FTC should investigate the whistleblower’s claims.’  Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, says that the ‘whistleblower’s testimony diverts from the real crime, Facebook’s unabashed war on conservatives.’
  83. 2021 Tuesday W: CALIFORNIA LOTTERY RESULTS-MEGA-MILLIONS DRAW- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1700 what with a $45 million jackpot on the line: 07, 11, 18, 30, 36, and Mega 04.  Out of 69,999 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $24,231 apiece.
  84. 2021 Tuesday X: as you know, we await news every day as to what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges are up to; please remain alert as for when we do later today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by English band Fairport Convention- “What We Did on our Holidays”- came out on January 12, 1969.  The band featured a change in the lineup- Judy Dyble out and Sandy Denny (vocals, guitars, keyboards) in her place.  The lineup now featured Iain Matthews (lead vocals, congas), Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Ashley Hutchings (basses, jug), and Martin Lamble (drums, percussion, and violin).  The album saw the band moving to much more of a folk-rock sound without some of the electric elements that fans, and music critics said made them sound like an English version of the Jefferson Airplane.  Still, it’s a great follow up to a superb debut album and we encourage everyone to visit your favorite site for the best in rock-and-roll music and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.
