  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is suing the Biden regime over its refusal to deport criminal illegal aliens.  Excellent. Next, citizens living in border states in a recent poll show that people of ALL political parties believe that Joe Biden’s immigration policies (or lack thereof) are responsible for driving cases of the ‘VID as well as increasing human trafficking and the deaths of thousands.  We must secure our borders.
  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The International Energy Agency- the IEA- has warned that Joe Biden’s policies are allowing the Chi-Coms to obtain greater control of dwindling rare mineral resources across the globe.   Meanwhile, Dr. Jill is meeting with military spouses during a stop in the Rocky Mountain State.  Next, the FAA is hitting unruly, mask-less passengers with massive fines.   In other Biden regime news, growing numbers of people are asking WHY the United States Postal Service now is SPYING on Americans’ social media posts?  Where the hell does the USPS get authority to do this?  Twilight Zone, folks, welcome to the modern-day Joe Biden regime police state.[xviii]   Finally, U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says, ‘kids will be back in school full-time by September.’
  73. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– House GOP leaders send a letter to Centers for Disease Control- CDC- demanding answers as to ties between teachers’ unions and the CDC.  The educators unions seem to hold a great deal of power over what the CDC says, allows, and does.  Next, Moderna is testing a COVID-19 booster shot which the pharmaceutical company shows promise in combatting the various variants.   Speaking of the vaccines, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says that the ‘Chi-Coms will be thrilled’ if the patents are stripped from BIG PHARMA’S vaccines as the communists will get their hands on them.[xix]  Elsewhere, Israel announces they believe they may have developed a drug that may cure COVID-19.  Thank God Joe Biden has no right to hand this information over to the Chi-Coms.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Xi Jinping has self-bestowed another title atop his shoulders, “Helmsman.”  The last person to ‘wear this moniker’ was the late Mao Zedong.   What further proof does one need to understand this thug wants to be a global dictator?   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken says that the U.S. will ‘stand with Ukraine against Russia.’  Boy, oh, boy.  In other fascinating news, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says that ‘Russian involvement, if not influence or interference in Brexit.’  Uh, okay.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– One America News obtained a letter from the Department of Justice to the state of Arizona attempting to STOP the 2020 Election audit currently going on within that state right now.  U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland swears the audit ‘could intimidate voters?’  WTF?  That is crazy, how is seeking to verify the election as free of corruption and fraud intimidating to voters unless of course, the timid voters actively participated in the fraud?   Speaking of election fraud, legislators in Wisconsin are proposing their own version of an election reform bill.  Meanwhile, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed into law the strongest election integrity bill in the United States.  God bless you, governor.
  76. 2021 Thursday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The upcoming new Superman movie will feature a black actor playing the man of steel.  Awesome.  Will the next Black Panther be a white actor? 
  77. 2021 Thursday L: National Security News– well-known household name Honeywell has been fined for sharing U.S. Department of Defense data with foreign countries.  The fine is a mere $13 million so it would seem as though the Biden regime wants Honeywell to continue funneling national security information to the, uh, Chi-Coms.  Really? 
  78. 2021 Thursday M: Big Tech News– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, is officially introducing his “Bust Up Big Tech Act,” aka BUBTA, an act with which to clean the clocks of social media titans and search engine leftist losers.  We have been personally assaulted by both social media and BIG TECH and would love to see both destroyed and their individual parts plastered around the world.   In other pathetic BIG TECH NEWS, even though there is NO direct connection between ‘From the Desk of President Donald J. Trump’ and Twitter, Jack Dorsey has closed the account.  WTF?   Speaking of Twitter, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, blasts Twitter for temporarily suspending one of her aides for no particular reason.   Moving on, a member of the Facebook ‘Oversight Board’ says that the referral on President Donald J. Trump was ‘lazy.’  An overseer at Facebook says the social media site should be less politically loaded (because we hope you guys are going to get broken up…for good).
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Political News I– The state of South Carolina adds the firing squad to its list of execution methods which also include the electric chair and lethal injection.  However, seeing as how namby-pamby suppliers of drugs for lethal injection many times will not sell the necessary items to states using them to carry out capital punishment.  Next Donald Trump Jr. says the Dems ‘want his father silenced because they know he resonates with the American people.’  Meanwhile, Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, is upping pressure to get to the bottom of Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations.  We want to know, too, why this POS is able to collude with an ENEMY who hates our country, and no one does anything about it? 
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, DS, is colluding with a far-left Swiss billionaire so he can get funds to screw up gerrymandering efforts in states where changes in proportional representation and loss or gain of new House sets is occurring or is set to occur.   In other news, Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says of colleague, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, is focused way too much on the past and not on the present and future.  We hope she is out next week.   NO MORE RINOS.  In other hilarious news, Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI, is set to receive a ‘profiles in courage award’ or some such dreck for her ‘handling of the pandemic in Michigan.’  What a joke.  This dingbat should be in prison.  In other news, Caitlyn Jenner- in response to critics going after her now that she is seeking Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s seat- says, “I move on.”  There you go.  
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Political News III–  A bar owner in California was busted for selling fake Chi-Vi vaccine documentation to people seeking them.  Next, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DSPUSA-MN 5th congressional district says, ‘it’s time to grow a backbone and end the filibuster.’  F— you.   Next, New York’s Sheldon Silver, former Democratic speaker of the state assembly, has been ordered to return to federal prison.  Elsewhere, TenCent is negotiating with U.S. authorities to keep its investment in the U.S.  Meanwhile, the FBI says they have close to 500 (440) arrests in the BIG FALSE FLAG OPERATION the Democrats and their storm-troopers of Antifa and Black Lives Matter ran on January 06, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol.  Yes, there were Trump supporters there but it’s clear to anyone with political knowledge that most of the people were left-wing infiltrators who nearly pulled off a coup of sorts but eventually failed.  The only ones rotting in the D.C. hoosegow are Trumpers while the Antifa and BLM thugs have all been sprung and in the wind.

The next album released by the Band was the self-titled, “The Band.”  Released on September 22, 1969, this album known as the “Brown Album” due to its album cover, was an even bigger hit their freshman debut.  Like their first album, it produced some powerful hits such as “Up on Cripple Creek” and “The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.”  Once again, the band featured Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  What we have for you today is the “The Band 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on September 27, 2019.  This is a wonderful album, one we anticipate everyone will want to own because in this day and age of bullshit music, there is nothing more refreshing than a blast from the past such as the one we are promoting here.  Please seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.

  70. 2009 Thursday: U.S. Supreme Court Justice David Souter announced his retirement effective at the end of the court’s term in late June.   Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than peaceful marches turning into violent mobs?  Violence breaks out in the streets of Germany, Greece, and Turkey where cops try to quell mob violence to the best of their abilities.  What is it with the communists?  Can’t they do anything without launching violent attacks on people who have nothing with which to do with them?  WTF?
  71. 2010 Friday: The Washington Post publishes a story in which, two retired U.S. Army generals tell the reporter that the U.S. military is having a tough time with 25-percent of the population being obese and ‘too fat to fight.’  Perhaps we should return to a draft and get these punks back in shape?   Meanwhile, some member of the ‘religion of peace’ sets off a bomb inside a Mogadishu mosque sending at least two dozen people to visit with Allah sooner than they had anticipated.
  72. 2011 Saturday: At Abbottabad, Pakistan, U.S. Special Forces’ Seal Team Six locate and kill the most wanted terrorist in the world, Osama bin Laden along with several others who attempted to defend him.   Late in the evening, U.S. President Barack Obama announces that American military operatives killed Osama bin Laden, founder of the militant Islamist group Al-Qaida.  Former President George W.

Human Rights Office determines that it is a violation of international law to force-feed hunger strikers at the U.S. Guantanamo Bay prison.  Elsewhere, in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, the Boston police scoop up three close friends of the bombers who provided them aid and comfort.  Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, a May Day celebration causes the celebrants to run amok, attacking police, breaking glass, and setting things ablaze.  Nearly a dozen cops are injured in the melees around the city.  That’s communists for you.
  75. 2014 Thursday: According to Brainy History, Ford Motor Company CEO Alan Mulally, will retire in July and that Mark Fields will replace him; Mulally restored profitability and distinguished the company as the only Big Three automaker to refuse government bailouts during the 2008-2009 recession.  Elsewhere, as Vladimir Putin’s thugs continue trying to snip off the eastern portion of Ukraine- cos, don’t you know- a whole lotta Russians supposedly live there- Kiev orders a return to conscription, what we Americans call the draft.  IF only the Obama administration would provide these guys with weapons.
  76. 2015 Friday: According to Brainy History, Elon Musk, head of Tesla Motors, announces the formation of Tesla Energy, a producer of large batteries for storage of generated renewable energy in homes and businesses.  Elsewhere, in Jalisco state in Mexico, narcoterrorists knock a Mexican military helicopter out of the sky.  In the ensuing crash, three Mexican soldiers are killed outright while another 10 soldiers and a pair of Federales suffer injuries to varying degrees.  Meanwhile, Maryland State Attorney Marilyn Mosby says that the six officers involved in the death of criminal Freddie Gray were negligent in their duties.   These six officers of the Baltimore Police Department will find themselves in court.
  77. 2016 Sunday: ISIS does what it does best and that is it carries out two car bombings in the town of As-Samawah that propels unlucky souls to commune with Allah while leaving 75 wounded in varying degrees.   Elsewhere, two Christian missionaries working out of Pennsylvania are found murdered in separate areas of Jamaica’s rural St. Mary’s Parish.  As of now, NO one knows who killed Randy Hentzel and Harold Nichols.
  78. 2017 Monday: Musician Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins fame announces he will purchase the National Wrestling Alliance.   Elsewhere, Kim Jong Un goes berserk as the U.S. flies two B-1B heavy bombers over the Korean Peninsula causing the ‘Brave Leader’ to bellow that the Trump administration is preparing for nuclear war against his country.  Meanwhile, what’s Paris, France, without RIOTS on May Day?  That’s what they get as mobs of protesters- supposedly preparing for upcoming elections- run amok in the streets causing riot police to fire tear gas and rubber bullets into the seething crowd.
  79. 2018 Tuesday: Another one bites the dust: the Dominican Republic, under pressure from the Chi-Coms, severs ties with Taiwan and opens diplomatic relations with Beijing.   Elsewhere, it’s May Day and what could be better than communists and socialists running amok in the streets?  In France, Paris sees some violent demonstrations what with car dealerships and fast-food restaurants being set ablaze.  Not good.  Maybe the authorities should utilize some lead on these scumbags?  Just saying.
  80. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr sits before the Senate Judiciary Committee, so he shag questions on HOW he handled the fraudulent Robert S. Mueller III report into ‘Trump-Russia collusion,’ since proven to be little more than a hoax.  Meanwhile, WikiLeaks founder receives a sentence of 50 weeks in a British slammer over his skipping bail back in 2012.  After that…he could be on his way to the United States.  Elsewhere, following the leak of a defense council meeting in Great Britain regarding the danger communist China’s Huawei poses the United Kingdom, British Prime Minister Theresa May fires her Secretary of State Defense Gavin Williamson, blaming him for the leak.
  81. 2020 Friday: COVID-19 continues running amok and communist China continues acting like the Sgt. Schultz character on the old B & W TV show, “Hogan’s Heroes,” “We know nothing, we know nothing.”  Okay, be like that.  Anyhow, here are today’s statistics: around the globe, we have 3,033,296 confirmed cases of this mess, 235,290 confirmed deaths but 1,039,588 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,128,460 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu, 65,435 confirmed deaths, and 137,944 confirmed recoveries.  If you notice, confirmed deaths in the U.S. rose only 1,897 over the course of today while confirmed recoveries rose by 9,508 so folks, WTF?  Far-left fascist governors, quit behaving like you work in China and not the United States- that means you, Ralph Northam, which means you, Gretchen Whitmer, that means you, northeast liberal lunatic governors and that means you, J.B. Pritzker.  STOP behaving like Nazis!
  82. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 152,785,811 confirmed cases, +786,224, 3,205,782  confirmed deaths, +12,547, and 130,723,338 confirmed recoveries, +86,191.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,145,766 confirmed cases, UP 41,792 from yesterday’s reporting, 590,704 confirmed deaths, UP 661,[x] and 25,777,864 confirmed recoveries, UP 67,805.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi] 
  83. 2021 Saturday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 276,082 CHI-VI deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 281.6 days, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,812 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 185,892 deaths. 
  84. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,744,182 confirmed cases, 61,865 confirmed deaths, and 1,992,932 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,238,937 confirmed cases, 35,239 confirmed deaths, and 1,799,224 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,468 confirmed cases, 483 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 406,753 confirmed cases, 5,563 confirmed deaths, and 191,652 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Hampshire, a once reliable DEEP RED state before the Democratic-Socialists corrupted it: they have 95,163 confirmed cases, 1,304 confirmed deaths, and 91,400 confirmed recoveries.[xii]   Meanwhile, CNN is reporting that the U.S. has managed to secure ONE BILLION DOSES of Chi-Vi vaccines which has led medical ethicists to suggest we should share them with the world.  Please do.  We don’t want them.  Elsewhere, BOTH Joe Biden and the GOP is trying to push the American people to get the shots.  This reminds us of when the U.S. military was forcing the troops to get injections with which to combat anthrax before invading Iraq and many service personnel had issues with the vaccines.  NOT for us.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he continues masking up even though the Centers for Disease Control now say that we don’t other than on specific occasions. 
  85. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,481 confirmed cases, 6,363 confirmed deaths, and 830,625 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Armenia, perhaps the greatest of all Christian countries in the Middle East/Central Asia: 216,586 cases of the virus, 4,128 confirmed deaths and 199,155 confirmed recoveries.[xiii]     
  86. 2021 Saturday D:  Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,874.85, DOWN 185.51 points (-0.54%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,962.98, DOWN 119.86 points (-0.85%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,181.17, DOWN 30.30 points (-0.72%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.49 per barrel, -0.09 (-0.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,768.80 per troy oz., +1.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.92 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.24%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,203.90 per troy oz, -1.30 (-0.11%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, -0.01 (-0.27%).[xiv]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,934.50 per troy oz, -17.48 (-0.59%).[xv] The price of RHODIUM is $28,500.00 per troy oz., +150.00 (+0.51%).[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.22.     In Moldovan Leu, one greenback equals 17.64 and in Mongolian Tögrög, a buck equals 2,820.00 and in Moroccan Dirham, one dollar equals 8.93 of theirs.[xvii]  
  87. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.034 per gallon, $2.783 in Florida, $3.797 in Hawaii, and $3.466 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Nebraska: $2.815.  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 sixth lowest gasoline price in the world- Kazakhstan: $1.576 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,236,690,578,042 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  88. 2021 Saturday F: Political News I–  For some unknown reason (yeah, right), Democrats won’t get behind Missouri Republican Senator Josh Hawley’s bill with which to rein in BIG TECH.  The Dems are in bed with BIG TECH.  Next, legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says the FBI raid on Rudy Giuliani’s townhouse was “UNCONSTITUTIONAL.”  Next (and we sincerely doubt this) the Democrats are acting as though they are willing to make concessions on the infrastructure bill they are trying to ramrod through Congress.    Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘D.C. statehood should not be granted through unilateral congressional action but through the amendments process as it should.’  The Democrats are angry.
  89. 2021 Saturday G: Political News II– Former U.S. Secretary for the Interior Ryan Zinke is going to run for one of Montana’s new U.S. House seats.  Elsewhere, the liberals are ginning up a buzz about U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer possibly going into retirement.  Boy, does the left want to get this guy off the nation’s high court so they can emplace another piece of fecal matter on the court such as the always-angry Stacey Abrams (God forbid).  Meanwhile, at a Utah state GOP convention, the good people of that state booed U.S. Senator Mitt Romney, RINO.  Good.   Finally, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom knows he is going to lose in November’s recall election because he is releasing 76,000 violent and repeat state prison offenders early.  He wants to make sure the people of the Golden State suffer at the hands of these Untermensch.   Thank you, governor, thank you.
  90. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– North Korea says that the Biden regime’s actions suggest the United States wants war with the Democratic Republic of North Korea.  Joe is taking us backward.   Elsewhere, further west in the scenic countryside of Afghanistan’s eastern Logar province, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ conducted a car bombing that propelled 27 unfortunate souls to the ‘other side’ while leaving many more suffering to one degree or another.  Many of the poor bastards were high school students.  Wow.  The Taliban are now warning of counterattacks on U.S. forces as today was the day for total withdrawal.[xxi]  Meanwhile, regarding the Bat Flu vaccine, Canada is putting a halt on the distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to contamination fears at the manufacturing plant.  And the liberals SWEAR that the anxieties of vaccine receivers is what has led to blood clots and other reported problems and NOT the vaccine.  Yeah, right.  We’re with you, Canada.
  91. 2021 Saturday I: Miscellaneous News I– California is trying to get their hands on incarcerated Harvey Weinstein but the extradition request currently in on hold.  He is going nowhere (although we are surprised that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden’s regime has not yet sprung a fellow groper).   Next, the U.S. Army’s investigation into the death of Specialist Vanessa Guillen has determined that she was sexually abused, reported the abuse as she should to her superiors, and that nothing was done about it.  This is beginning to sound like the movie, “A Few Good Men” (1992) because at least 20-plus people at Fort Hood, Texas, are in trouble for this case and several similar other cases.  What is wrong with our military?   Elsewhere, citizens of the Empire State will soon see their electricity bills skyrocket as the last reactor- Indian Point 3- at the nuclear power plant closed today.  What is wrong with people?  Nuclear energy is the safest and cheapest way of creating electricity, but the Green Meanies have everyone terrified of nuclear power plants (thank you, “The China Syndrome” (1979).   Finally, in the era of feeble Joe Biden, both CNN and MSNBC have seen their ratings precipitously fall to the point where WE hope they go broke. 
  92. 2021 Saturday J: Mass Shootings News– In Green Bay, Wisconsin, tonight, people were having an enjoyable time at the Oneida Casino when a gunman strolled in and began blasting the place.  Several people were shot but at press time, the authorities had not yet shared information on the status of the victims.  The cops did get their hands on the shooter, however.  Meanwhile, in St. Louis, Missouri, today was a deadly day with two people shot and killed and another dozen shout and wounded.  We await status on these victims, too.  What is it in the era of Joe Biden that shootings are occurring all over the flipping place?  What is it about drooling Joe Biden? 
  93. 2021 Saturday K: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws–  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3556 with a $43 million jackpot on the line: 01, 06, 13, 22, 31, and Mega 13.  Out of 136,144 winning tickets, 23 people had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $945 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #842 with a $129 million jackpot up for the taking: 35, 36, 47, 61, 63, and Powerball 03.  Out of 64,388 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,331 apiece.
  94. 2021 Saturday L: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS / LAW ENFORCEMENT NEWS- In Chicago, Illinois, today a 28-year-old psychopath- Elijah Rule Hill Prince- attacked a man in the 10500 block of South Emerald Avenue who refused to purchase something the punk said he was selling.  This led to Mr. Prince leaping onto the man, putting him into a chokehold, hitting him in the face with a shovel, biting off chunks of his ears, biting his scalp open, gouging out his eyes including one in which he used a portion of a wooden stake which he then drove into the man’s socket.  As his victim lay gasping for breath, Mr. Prince then spit into his gaping mouth.  The victim’s wife rushed out to help her husband and Mr. Prince then bit off humongous portions of her ears, gouged out her eyes, beat her, and spit on her before ambling away leaving his victims in the street.  The cops eventually found the sociopath, arrested him, and currently he is being held on $5 million bond.  When asked about the blood that was all over him, Mr. Prince said it was the “Blood of peasants.” Folks, this is someone the cops should have shot dead on the spot.  All you anti-cop people out there, stop f**king sniveling.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 571,561 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,806 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in SIXTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 466 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

[vii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.  The album on which, “Brown Sugar” appeared- “Sticky Fingers”- was offered on Wednesday, 13-April-2016.  It was a wonderful addition to the band’s discography; we hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the best rock music.

[viii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[xxi] Sadly, we believe this is all by design because we believe the Military-Industrial-Political Complex does not want to pull out of this s—hole country.  Too much money is to be made supplying the military with the tools of the trade which means we want a ‘Gulf of Tonkin Incident’ to occur so decrepit old Joe Biden can mumble into a microphone, “We can’t leave.  We must stay and fight this evil” which means another generation of American youth will continue being killed and maimed.  WTF does it take to end a frigging war.  The new corporate form of government has been with us since George W. Bush took us to war in Iraq over NOTHING and will remain here until the American people stand up and say, “WE AREN’T GOING TO TAKE THIS CRAP ANYMORE.”  As an old man, I, Moses Scharbug III, most likely won’t be able to see it but I sure hope successive generations do.  This crap must end.

  12. 1863 Thursday: In Mexico, as the French regime of Maximillian is under assault, at Camerone, the foundation for the French Foreign Legion’s most distinguished holiday occurs at a battered farmhouse.  Three officers- led by a captain with a wooden hand- and 63 rankers- held out against a howling mob of more than 2,000 Mexicans.  All day, the sun baked the ramshackle building that was becoming as porous as a kitchen sieve with all the flying lead plowing through it witnessed the deaths of most of the defenders until late in the day, the remaining five Legionnaires made the grim decision: to fix bayonets, fire their last round, and then charge out at the screeching mad attackers.  So, they did, they charged out, went into Legion history for all time by killing as many of their howling opponents as possible, and the Mexicans were so surprised and impressed that their leader spared the lives of the three survivors.

  21. 1916 Sunday: Fighting in Dublin, Ireland, ends as more than 700 rebels lay down their arms to the British occupiers.  Elsewhere, the Allies continue trying to bring the German colonial forces to a decisive battle and a column crossing over from the Belgian Congo reaches Lake Victoria where they hope to trap the Germans between them and South African forces. 
  22. 1918 Tuesday: British forces in the Middle East continue rolling up the Ottoman Turks.  The Ottoman Empire was a crumbling entity, long known as the “Sick Man of Europe” because it was a jaded, hollow empire just awaiting the right set of circumstances to bring about its collapse.   That collapse was coming.

  24. 1930 Wednesday: The Soviet Union proposed a military alliance with Great Britain and France.  
  25. 1938 Saturday: A precursor to the cartoon character, Bugs Bunny, first appeared in the Warner Brothers animated short, “Porky’s Hare Hunt.”

  27. 1940 Tuesday: State boxing officials in California licensed Belle Martell as the United States’ first female prizefight referee.  Elsewhere, following on the heels of the evacuation of Norway’s King Haakon, British troops begin preparing for evacuation themselves.  It is clear who is going to win this fight and it’s not going to be the French and British but the Nazis.
  28. 1941 Wednesday: The Afrika Korps gears up for yet another assault on the port of Tobruk with heavy bombing attacks by bombers and dive bombers.  The general leading this assault is Friedrich von Paulus, who would end up being transferred to the attack on the Soviet Union and would become the losing commander at Stalingrad.

  30. 1943 Friday: The Nazi extermination camp, Bergen-Belsen, begins construction.  Elsewhere, in London, the Free Polish Government is in a quandary what with the demand for Swiss Red Cross to investigate the Katyn Forest Massacre because if they continue pushing it, the Soviets are going to cut them out of the future of Poland (which they do anyway).
  31. 1944 Sunday: U.S. Navy warplanes continue attacking Truk and destroying loads of Japanese warplanes.  Due to severe losses among veteran pilots, the Japanese are rushing poorly trained pilots into the fight which shows the desperation afflicting them.  Surrender?  No way in hell.
  32. 1945 Monday: As Russian troops approached his Berlin Bunker, Adolf Hitler committed suicide along with his wife of one day, Eva Braun.  His successor, Grand Admiral Karl Dönitz assumed power on this date and in this capacity served until his surrender to the Allies on May 23, 1945. Still the fight rages within the city and in other parts of Czechoslovakia where Germans still hold land.  The fight is fierce because the German military now seeks to keep open ‘tunnels’ through which retreating comrades can reach the West and surrender to the American, British, and French allies and not to the Soviets.  Meanwhile, Arthur Godfrey began his CBS radio morning show, “Arthur Godfrey Time.”  It ran until this day in 1972.
  33. 1947 Wednesday: The federal government changed the name of the Boulder Dam back to the Hoover Dam.
  34. 1952 Wednesday: The first toy advertised on television is Mr. Potato Head.
  35. 1954 Friday: At Dien Bien Phu, the weather clears which is joyous news for the French Foreign Legionnaires’ feast day, the Day of Camerone when they commemorate the Legion’s history and their lost comrades.  American air crews return to flying in supplies during the daytime as well as dropping in reinforcements while fighter planes are able to attack one AA battery position after another.   Among the most important supplies dropped to the French troops was a strange gelatinous wine-substance that when combined with water became a drinkable wine.  Called vinogel, French troops kept their eyes on it all day as it lay in crates between their lines and then at night launched sorties out into No-Man’s Land to retrieve as much of it as possible as well as killing as many communists as possible.  The retrieval of a 16-year-old recently drafted into the People’s Army gave the defenders hope as he had no clue as to what unit he was in or what he was supposed to do.[i]  
  36. 1956 Monday: The former 35th vice president of the United States (served January 20, 1949-to-January 20, 1953) Alben W. Barkley, died at age 78 in Lexington, Virginia, on this date.  A Democrat, he served under President Harry S. Truman.

  38. 1961 Sunday: Willie Mays of the San Francisco Giants hits four homeruns in one game.   Meanwhile, communist thug dictator, Fidel Castro, receives the ‘Lenin Peace Prize’ for his work to bring about ‘peace.’  What a load of garbage.
  39. 1964 Thursday: The FCC ruled that all TV receivers should be able to receive both VHF and UHF channels.  
  40. 1968 Tuesday: New York police forcibly removed student demonstrators occupying five buildings at Columbia University.
  41. 1970 Thursday: At 9:00 P.M. as the invasion was already underway the prior day, President Richard M. Nixon announced that ‘U.S. and South Vietnamese troops were going to invade Cambodia during the war in Vietnam to take out the North Vietnamese supply bases up and down the Ho Chi Minh Trail.’
  42. 1971 Friday: In Charlotte, North Carolina, future 17th U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx is born.  A future Democrat, he would serve under President Barack Hussein Obama from July 02, 2013, to January 20, 2017.
  43. 1973 Monday: President Richard Nixon announced the resignations of top aides, H.R. Haldeman, and John Ehrlichman, as well as that of the 68th U.S. Attorney General Richard G. Kleindienst. As for White House counsel John Dean, President Nixon fired the scurrilous rat on suspicions (confirmed decades later) that he was the notorious “Deep Throat” who spilled his guts to the news media.
  44. 1974 Tuesday: President Richard M. Nixon hands over partial transcripts of Watergate tape recordings.
  45. 1975 Wednesday: The last U.S. helicopter leaves the U.S. embassy grounds in Saigon; the city surrenders to the North Vietnamese on this date.  Next, the 39th U.S. Secretary of the Interior Rogers C.B. Morton left office on this date.  A Republican, Secretary Morton served under Presidents Richard M. Nixon and then Gerald R. Ford from January 29, 1971, to April 30, 1975.  His replacement, the 39.1st Acting U.S. Interior Secretary D. Kent Frizzell, assumed office on this date.  A Republican also, Acting Secretary Frizzell served under President Gerald R. Ford from today until June 12, 1975. 
  46. 1976 Friday: At Landover, Maryland, Muhammad Ali retains the WBA, WBC, and The Ring magazine’s heavyweight boxing titles scoring a unanimous decision in 15 rounds over Jimmy Young.  By beating the hard-hitting Young, Ali improved his pro-record to 51-2 while Jimmy’s record went to 17-5-2.  On the undercard, heavyweight boxer Ken Norton scores a TKO over opponent, Ron Stander, at the 1:19 minute mark of Round 5 of a scheduled 12-round bout.  Norton’s pro record went to 36-3 and would put the ‘Fighting Marine’ on a collision course with Muhammad Ali on September 28, 1976.  As for Stander- known as the “Council Bluffs Butcher,” his record went to 29-9-2.
  47. 1980 Wednesday: In London, terrorists seize the Iranian embassy.
  48. 1983 Saturday: Blues singer and guitarist Muddy Waters[ii] died in Westmont, Illinois, at age 70.  Cause of death was heart failure, he died in his sleep.

  55. 1997 Wednesday: 42 million viewers tune in to the “Ellen” show to hear her announce she is ‘Gay.’
  56. 1998 Thursday: NATO expanded to include Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic.  The three nations underwent formal admittance the following April at the 50th anniversary summit meeting of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
  57. 1999 Friday: Longtime drummer with the Scottish rock band Nazareth- Darrell Sweet- died at age 51 51 in New Albany, Indiana, USA, from cardiac arrest while the band was touring.

  65. 2010 Friday: The Deepwater Horizon oil spill reaches the Louisiana coast; weather officials predict that harsh weather will impede cleanup efforts.  Governor Bobby Jindal, Republican, had been begging for aid from the Obama administration but none was forthcoming until the first black waves began rolling across the beach.  By then, it was too late, fisheries destroyed, shrimp and crab-catcher fleets ruined for years to come.  Why?  Many suspect it’s because the Obama-Biden administration sought to vilify oil and natural gas so the American people would condemn fossil fuels.  Thankfully, it didn’t work.
  66. 2011 Saturday: As the Libyan civil war continues to rage, Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi says he is ‘willing to enter into a ceasefire but BOTH sides must agree to it, not just his side.’  Sadly, for the Libyan leader, his youngest son, Saif al-Arab Gaddafi and three of his children are killed in a NATO airstrike.  How did we end up fighting in this war?

  68. 2013 Tuesday: Apple, Inc. initiates the largest-ever non-bank bond offering at $17 billion.  Elsewhere, jihadists do what they do best and that is, they carry out a bombing on an unsuspecting population.  Today, in Damascus, Syria, they set off a bomb that blows 13 people to kingdom come while living many more wishing they had gone with them.  Horrible flipping people.
  69. 2014 Wednesday: In Clarkston, Washington, Larry Ramos—guitarist/vocalist with the Association[iii]—lost his battle with skin cancer on this date; he was 72 years-old.  Meanwhile, the Yemeni army has lost at least 30 people in ongoing battles with al-Qaida thugs.   Elsewhere, the Sultan of Brunei has announced the new institution of laws that would make Islamic law supreme what with floggings, amputations, and stoning of guilty folks.  We won’t be visiting there anytime soon.
  70. 2015 Thursday: U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, announces his bid to seek the Democratic Party’s 2016 presidential nomination.  Elsewhere, following the seizure of a Danish-owned tanker by the Iranians, the U.S. Navy says it will escort American-flagged ships through the Strait of Hormuz to prevent further such criminal actions.   
  71. 2016 Saturday: The Italian coast guard is plying the waters off the coast of Libya.  A migrant raft jam-packed with Muslim refugees began floundering with the loss of at least 70 people and only 26 or 27 people rescued.  Elsewhere, a heatwave in India continues claiming lives with 300 people so far succumbing to record temperatures.  If only these poor people had air-conditioning; then again, environmentalists HATE air-conditioning, believing it WRECKS the environment.  Dumb asses.
  72. 2017 Sunday: At a pool party in San Diego, California, a pool party goes up in smoke as a shooter kills one person outright, wounds another seven and then is shot and killed by the police.  Elsewhere, budget negotiators in Congress come to a bipartisan agreement on the budget for FY 2017.  The deal will fund the federal government through September 30 while the current budget expires on May 05.
  73. 2018 Monday: Marvel’s “Avengers: Infinity War” sets new opening weekend box office record raking in $250 million in the United States and another $630 million around the planet.  Meanwhile, in Baghdad, the criminal court sentences a load of women from several different countries to life in prison for purportedly belonging to ISIS.  The tally included 19 Russians, six Azerbaijani, and four Tajikistani women.  Life is going to be rough for them. 
  74. 2019 Tuesday: Japan’s Emperor Akihito announces he is stepping down at an abdication ceremony in Tokyo, effective the following day.  Naruhito will be the new emperor.   Elsewhere, Canada expresses its outrage over the second of its citizens condemned to death in the People’s Republic of China this year.  Fan Wei received the sentence for his supposed production of and transportation of methamphetamine.  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expresses his anger while pleading for clemency.
  75. 2020 Thursday: Thanks to the Kung Flu trashing the United States, another 3.6 million unemployment claims pushes total unemployment numbers for Americans over 30 million.  AND the Chinese find offense in the growing world anger directed towards them!  Millions of people around the world now believe that COVID-19 was something deliberately released onto the world following Beijing being forced to sign the new U.S.-China Trade Accord.  We shall see.  Current numbers for the Wuhan Virus Crisis Pandemic for the world rest at 3,249,022 confirmed cases what with 230,804 confirmed deaths but 1,006,112 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the United States, confirmed cases rest at 1,079,780, confirmed deaths stand at 62,603 but confirmed recoveries are 127,950.  Additionally, more states are beginning to release restrictions and businesses are beginning to reopen.  However, in California, Gov. Gavin Newsom issues a new order today in which all beaches along the state’s enormous coastline are now closed.   (Gavin, if you close the beaches, we will go to the mountains, the lakes, the forests, even the deserts to disobey your authoritarian orders).  In addition to this, we now know that Gov. Newsom is spending $1 billion in communist China to purchase (shoddy) PPE items for the state.  F**king China lover.

  77. 2021 Friday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 275,421 CHI-VI Deaths In The United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  82. 2021 Friday FCOVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Does EVERYONE recall how Joe Biden called President Donald J. Trump a xenophobe for cutting off travel from communist China and then from Europe?  Well, now Joe Biden has cut off travel from India seeing as how they are in a big mess with the Chi-Vi.  Sucks to be right next door to China because it would seem Beijing has no problem in sending the disease across its borders and into others.  Anyhow, the U.S. now is going to export the Pfizer vaccine to Mexico to help them with their cases.   Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control says that it was ANXIETY and NOT the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that caused all the adverse effects on people with blood clots, mental issues, and other issues connected to the vaccine.   Elsewhere, Florida lawmakers have moved on a bill banning COVID-19 passports.  Good.  We don’t have them for HIV-AIDS-infected people, we sure as hell don’t need them for the Chi-Com flu.   Speaking of the vaccines and how effective that it is, Arizona state lawmaker Alma Hernandez, Democrat, 3rd house district, received both doses of the Chi-Vi vaccine and just tested positive for the ‘VID.   Finally, scientists are encouraging the World Health Organization to look BEYOND animals for the human connection on the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  83. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Secretary of State Tony Blinken is visiting Ukraine next week.  Next, the state of South Dakota is suing the Biden administration over its ban on fireworks at Mt. Rushmore on the Fourth of July.   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, says that Joe Biden’s plan to dump millions of dollars atop the Northern Triangle countries is ‘concerning.’  Another critic of the Biden regime- Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, said that Joe Biden’s speech the other night, i.e., the address to a Joint Session of Congress, was like he was giving a ‘private speech.’  Yep.  It sure seemed that way to us, too.  In other Biden regime news, WHITE farmers are suing the corrupt administration over them being denied aid while black, brown, Asian-Pacific Islanders, Native Americans, gays, trannys, and other oddball farmers can get FREE MONEY from the federal government.
  84. 2021 Friday H: Political News I– Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, introduced a bill that would prevent the use of adversarial technology in U.S. government and military operations.  Next, voted-out-of-office former Senator Bill Nelson, D-FL, is set to become the next administrator of NASA.   Moving on, as with other states making changes in the aftermath of the STOLEN presidential election of 2020, the Florida state legislature has passed a new voting law of its own.  Good for them.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Cheri Bustos, D-IL 17th congressional district, says she is not going to seek another term in 2022.  Thus, she is going to retire.
  85. 2021 Friday I: Political News II– A new poll regarding old Joe Biden says that HE is LESS popular than are the police and law enforcement.  Next, the GOP is questioning Joe Biden’s interference in the 2020 Census.  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says he is not going to fold on the Dems’ push for ‘D.C. statehood,’ something that cannot happen as long as the U.S. Constitution remains the law of the land.  (Of course, the way we’re going, that may not be long).   Elsewhere, the White House says that following  a review, there will be limits placed on diplomacy with North Korea.  Next, former New York GOP Congressman Peter King says the ‘Biden administration is going for broke on spending as they are going to lose BIG NEXT YEAR.  Finally, Vice President Mike Pence is calling on Americans to unite behind a positive agenda while blasting the White House push for a far-left agenda that will destroy the country.
  86. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Money removed from the Pentagon’s budget to help fund wall construction along the southern border now will be returned by the Biden administration (after old Joe gets his hands on some of it).  Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security is going to repair the damage, we repeat- REPAIR THE DAMAGE- wall construction along the southern border has caused.  Wow.  Elsewhere, a new study says that 76-percent of illegal aliens will commit other crimes while lurking in the shadows of the United States.  Amen.
  87. 2021 Friday K: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw–  Here are the numbers for Mega-Millions Draw #1655 with a $319 jackpot: 08, 19, 26, 48, 49, and Mega 05.  Stay tuned for the full details on the winners…- Out of 135,460 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $33,509.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 571,540 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 206,785 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 465 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  94. 2022 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the ongoing border disaster for the past 393 days.  She has not shown up to do her job in 307 days.  A Greek tragedy in the making.  The cost of caring for the Third World invasion army since January 01, 2022, is approximately $765,407,697.  The cost of providing care to them since the Biden-Harris administration entered office is $42,511,213,440.  The number of illegals who have entered the country since the first day of the year is 1,225,976.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegals living in the United States is 47,850,393.  We contend the number is closer to 95-to-130 million, possibly even higher than that.  So much for globalism. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  68. 2018 Sunday: On this date, “The Simpsons,” the animated TV hit show surpasses “Gunsmoke’s” 635-episode run, becoming the longest-running show in the history of television.  Congratulations!   Elsewhere, South Korea reports that in a recent summit between North- and- South Korea that Kim Jong Un said that ‘IF the United States promises not to attack their nation, they might denuclearize.’  Uh, okay.

  71. 2020 Wednesday A: Meanwhile, Democratic women continue circling the wagons around stumbling, bumbling “Pro-China Joe” Biden as the Tara Reade story continues gathering steam.  Women who attacked Brett Kavanaugh continue to say, “No, Joe didn’t do anything.”  Look, liberal slut-bags, IF you don’t go after Joe, no one is ever going to pay attention to you hypocritical skanks ever again.  We know YOUR game.  Finally, NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio threatens to arrest Jewish citizens while promising Muslims they will get their meals throughout the city during Ramadan.  What?

  78. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The nation is all atwitter over last night’s ‘Joe Biden address to a Joint Session of the Congress,’ because Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, sitting up in the gallery was wearing a mylar blanket like all the illegal alien brats use to cover their bodies in the illegal alien holding pens. 
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Speaking of the ‘Biden agenda,’ Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘Joe Biden’s radical agenda is dead on arrival in the U.S. Senate.’  Next, the Senate is interviewing the next round of Joe Biden’s ‘judicial picks,’ most of them far-left whackos as the Dems seek to move on from the conservatives the Trump administration got onto the nation’s federal courts.  In other Joe Biden news, Catholic bishops are suggesting that Joe Biden should NOT take communion because of his insane push for abortions at all stages of fetal and post-fetal development.  We concur, Joe Biden should be excommunicated from the Catholic Church along with every other pro-abortion Democrats.  It is an evil and a sin.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– GOP lawmakers are requesting an inspector-general investigation into Climate Czar John F. Kerry’s close ties to the criminal regime in Tehran, what many say are treasonous ties.  It is clear that the Biden administration WON’T investigate John Kerry’s Logan Act violations unless, of course, it’s time to throw him under the bus for some misdeed within the administration.  Speaking of the Iranians, after the leak of the audio tape hit the news cycle in which the Iranians were discussing the help John F. Kerry provided them on ongoing Israeli covert operations in Syria, the presidential office is undergoing an extreme shakeup as they seek the rat(s) who leaked the damning evidence of collusion between “Lurch” and the mullahs.  Meanwhile, Maria Butina, a Russian intelligence operative (or so the feds claimed) who did time in an American prison is seeking to win a seat in Russia’s Parliament.   Speaking of Russia, allies of Alexei Navalny are closing down various of his offices over a harsh crackdown by the Putin government. 
  81. 2021 Thursday I: Political News I– The U.S. Department of Justice is going to launch civil rights violations charges against convicted Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin as well as the other three officers awaiting their trials.  You might ask, ‘doesn’t double jeopardy exist?’  In this country, NO longer, NO more.  If the federal government doesn’t like the outcome of a criminal trial, it can come in, dump in loads more charges, and go to town.  This is not right and should not be condoned otherwise, the feds can take repeated swings at the same crumbling apple.  ALL of us are in danger.  Next, New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio says that ‘New York City will fully reopen on July 01.’  We’ll see.  Moving on, after Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, gave last night’s rebuttal to Joe Biden’s incoherent speech, “Uncle Tim” was trending on Twitter before- after about 12 hours- Twitter took it down.  They wanted to make sure enough people saw it before removing it.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Political News II– Former U.S. Attorney Brett Tolam said on Newsmax today that he believes the seizure of Rudy Giuliani’s electronic devices- other than the hard drive from Hunter Biden’s laptop– demonstrates how the U.S. Justice Department has become totally politicized.  He alluded to the fact that prior to this- the third warrant- Justice Department officials sought two prior warrants to go after Rudy Giuliani but were denied each time.  Thus, they had to await a change in leadership at the DOJ, i.e., Merrick “The Mole” Garland becoming the attorney general.  With him sitting in the big chair, the enemies of Rudy easily got the warrants they sought, and the rest is history.  However, many are curious as to WHY the feds did not seize Hunter’s hard drive?   Also, as in other Trump allies’ treatment at the hands of the feds, the FBI made sure that reporters were on scene so they could see “America’s Mayor” embarrassed if that is at all possible.  They showed up at 6:30 a.m.  Hmmm, no wonder why there is the FBI show on TV… finally, in other U.S. government news, the feds will maintain the ban on menthol-flavored cigarettes and cigars.
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Political News III–  Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, are both refusing corporate donations.  Because they WOKE, man, the corporations that is.

  89. 2022 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.706 per gallon, $4.181 in Florida, $5.261 in Hawaii, and $4.699 in Washington state.[xxix]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: North Carolina- $3.864.  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 31st LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Uzbekistan: $3.294 per U.S. Gallon.[xxx] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,417,378,268,284 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxxi]  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 Brazil the SEVENTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland.  This nation holds $256,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  90. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian submarines are delivering barrages of cruise missile assaults onto various targets in Ukraine including an attack on Kyiv while the U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres was visiting Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky earlier in the week.  The Russians admit they targeted the meeting.  Meanwhile, 63 days into the Russo-Ukrainian War, Russian President Vladimir Putin says he’s going to ‘make it official’ by declaring war on Ukraine.  A new report says that the Russkies had almost captured President Zelensky in the opening days of the war.
  91. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Ukraine is now cracking down on traitors providing aid and comfort to the Russian invaders.  Time for ‘scorched earth’ tactics, the destroying of all materiel that would help the Russians, the poisoning of water sources, the destruction of crops, leave the new Red Army invaders in a cesspool of death.  Ukraine points out that the Russkies have lost at least 23,000 military personnel since its ill-fated invasion of Ukraine commenced 63 days ago.  Meanwhile, Kyiv reports that their flying ace- the so-called ‘Ghost of Kyiv’ who shot down at least six Russian jets in combat over the nation’s capital city- has now been shot down and killed himself.
  92. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III- The U.S. is providing military training to Ukrainians in Germany.  This, of course, will anger Russia.   Meanwhile, the Turks are cutting off access to the Black Sea as a growing problem of seaborne mines- implanted by the Russkies to hinder shipping to Ukraine- which means NO vessels in our out.
  93. 2022 Friday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– ‘Border Czar’ Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border catastrophe for the past 392 days.  It has been 306 days since the ‘border czar’ arrived on scene for a few minutes’ photo op.  Tragic.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders these past 119 days is $758,919,732.  The cost of caring for them since the VP and her boss, President Joseph R. Biden, took office is $42,504,725,475.  The number of illegal aliens who have arrived at our border since January 01, 2022, is in our estimate, 1,214,514.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the country is 47,838,931 whereas we believe the numbers closer to 95-130 million illegal aliens if not more.  These people drain resources meant for Americans, increase food scarcity, drive up crime, dumb-down our young people, overrun our hospitals and collapse our medical systems, and lower wages while driving up rents/mortgage costs. This is not right.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  94. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Iran nuclear deal supposedly hangs on the U.S. removing the terror designation from that country and its jihadist military apparatus.   Next, Russia announces its plan to abandon the ISS over the sanctions that the West and its other allies have slapped atop them.
  95. 2022 Friday K: Health and Medical Alerts– Hopefully, Joe Biden’s ‘misinformation board’ won’t censor or silence us but doctors around the world are attempting to find the cause of rising cases of hepatitis among young children.  They say they are leaning towards adenovirus as being the culprit whereas we are leaning towards increasing rates of COVID-19 vaccinations among young people that seemingly won’t or don’t stop.  The medical community is now urging the vaccination of wee babes for this Chi-Com-engineered virus.  This is insane.  The thing even more evil is that apparently, many of these children afflicted with hepatitis have required liver transplants.  Where oh where are these organs being harvested?  Communist China?  North Korea?  The aborted?  Wherever they are coming from, this ain’t right.  Poor Dr. Joseph Mengele- he was born a century too soon.   Speaking of abortion, progressives fear that IF Roe v. Wade goes down, nearly half of ALL U.S. physicians will not undergo abortion training.

  101. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden News I– President Joseph R. Biden and Mexico’s President Andrés Manuel López Obrador purportedly discussed the ‘unprecedented illegal alien invasion of the United States via the U.S.-Mexico border.’  While Joe Biden attempts to blame everyone else for his self-inflicted damages to the United States, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, lays the blame squarely where it belongs: upon the shoulders of senile Joe Biden.
  102. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden continues absorbing hit after hit after hit after hit.  Today, the inflation surge hit 6.6-percent, the largest jump since 1982.  Still, Joe hasn’t a clue as to what to do nor does he have the desire to do something to the positive if he did.   In other ‘Joe Biden Daily Disaster News,’ 72-percent of American voters say that ‘IF the Hunter Biden laptop stories are true, Joe Biden should be impeached and removed from office.’ Other polls report that his approval ratings continue their ongoing slide.  In other news, a new poll says that a vast majority of American voters are demanding TRANSPARENCY on Joe Biden’s declining mental state.
  103. 2022 Friday S: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster II– Joe Biden is still considering pandering to young holders of student loan debt (woe to those who have already paid off their loans).  To cover the costs of removing $10,000 debt from holders (woe to those with more than $10,000 student loan debt), the cost to taxpayers will be another $321 billion slapped atop the U.S. taxpayers- primarily the middle and working classes.  Thank you, f**king Joe Biden, thank you.  “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis calls the insane push to alleviate student loan debt ‘simply wrong.’  “America’s Governor” also alleges the Biden regime is installing an ‘Orwellian Ministry of Truth’ with which to perpetuate hoaxes and to silence its critics.  Rep. Rick W. Allen, R-GA 12th District, says of Joe Biden’s attempt to dismiss student loan debt that it’s a big political mistake.
  104. 2022 Friday T: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the election continues drawing nigh, the Biden regime is pushing the European Union to avoid an embargo of oil from Russia which will drive the cost of oil into the stratosphere.  The Biden regime wants the EU to slap the embargo onto the Russkies following the election so Democrats will somehow be able to retain power rather than go down in droves.
  105. 2022 Friday U: Joe Biden Regime News II– In between tears, Pentagon spokesperson Admiral John Kirby says there’s ‘no way that Russian President Vladimir Putin should be invited to the G-20.  Later in the day, we heard that Mr. Putin had been invited.   In other news, the Biden Dept. of Justice is going to challenge Alabama’s law banning tranny treatment for underage kids as well as prohibiting them from competing in scholastic sports other than in that of their gender.
  106. 2022 Friday V: Political News I– Senate Democrats are preparing to unleash $33 million in ad buys on the country.  Meanwhile, Senators Chuck Grassley, R-IA, and Ron Johnson, R-WI, are pushing DARPA to investigate the hacking of the DNC back in 2016.   Meanwhile, in a shocking interview between Sean Spicer and former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, the latter told the former that ‘there was not enough fraud to overturn the 2020 Presidential Election nor that the GOP should put Donald J. Trump forth as its 2024 standard-bearer.’  He did say, however, that he would vote for President Trump over the Democrat.
  107. 2022 Friday W: Political News II– Although NO one asked him, former President Bill Clinton is defending HIS flawed Russia policy while he was president.  His advisor back then- Dick Morris- encouraged Ukraine to surrender its nukes following the collapse of the Soviet Union with the guarantee that the United States would defend that country from all enemies.  (Note- all the Ukrainians had to do was to read U.S. history and to understand the millions of broken promises made by one administration after another.  Ask the Native Americans).
  108. 2022 Friday X: Political News III– Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is on the warpath against Senators Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, and Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ.  He believes they are standing in the way of his and his fellow progressives’ view of the coveted ‘socialist utopia.’  F**k Bernie.  Speaking of the ‘socialist utopia,’ former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI 2nd D, says that ‘Joe Biden’s ‘misinformation board’ makes the Biden regime a DICTATORSHIP.   Thankfully, Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd District, is the one leading the fight to defund this appalling, un-American ‘ministry of truth.’  Good.
  109. 2022 Friday Y: Political News IV– To the irritation of liberals across the Old Dominion State and across the country, Lt. Gov. Winsome Sears, R-VA, is celebrating the many accomplishments of the Youngkin Administration.  We celebrate with them.  Next, Rep. Ralph Norman, R-SC 5th congressional district, informed Newsmax today that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is a ‘pathological liar.’  Meanwhile, Alaska congressional candidate and former Governor Sarah Palin says that the ‘GOP must confront Dems who seek to take the United States DOWN.’
  110. 2022 Friday Z: Federal and State Court News– A U.S. court has sentenced ISIS ‘Beatle’ Kotey to life in prison for his murders of foreign journalists and captives.  Another judge has denied President Donald J. Trump’s request to dismiss the contempt charges against him in New York State and to force him to continue paying $10,000 per day in contempt of court charges.  Next, as her sentencing day looms, Ghislaine Maxwell has had her bid to have her conviction struck down denied.
  111. 2022 Friday AA: Popular Culture News–  James Corden will be leaving the “Late, Late Show,” sometime next year.   Next, the family of the filmmaker murdered by actor Alec Baldwin on the set of “Rust” is demanding the New Mexico sheriff conducting the investigation to take the shooting video of their loved one down from the Internet.  Speaking of the Internet, new analysis shows that with Elon Musk’s purchase of Twitter, conservatives are going to gain whereas liberals are going to lose.  In fact, in such pathetic sniveling, various liberal pundits on various television networks have shown the world their crimes by whining that they may be the ones ghosted, blacklisted, and/or shadow-banned.  Folks, we don’t want to ban liberal speech.  No, we want more of it, so everyone sees how frigging insane they are while we want unlimited access to share opposing views.
  112. 2022 Friday BB: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1759 what with a $34 million jackpot on the line: 09, 11, 34, 49, 66 and Mega 15.  Out of 52,053 winning tickets, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $424 apiece.

[i] We look forward to sharing the music of not only Waylon Jennings but of Willie Nelson, and the rest of the Outlaw country music scene. We definitely hope you will keep your eyes open for the day when we do.  You will love them all.

[ii] We offered the music of this famed West Coast band- the Grass Roots- beginning on Thursday, 06-February-2014 through Saturday, 22-February-2014.  We hope you will seek their music out by visiting whatever site you choose for the absolute best in rock music.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] As is the norm, we visit Martin Windrow’s amazing book, “The Last Valley,” De Capo Press (2006) as well as Time-Life Books for relevant information on this critical fight against communism.

[iv] Not sure when we promote the music of Aretha Davis but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[v] At some as yet undetermined point, we are going to go on an all-out Motown and Soul blitz, probably sometime before 2030 so we hope you will keep posted.  Otis Redding is one of the all-time greats and had he not died before his time could have been one of the music world’s megastars.

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

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] See previous footnote.

[ix] The cops should have executed this Islamist POS on sight.  F**k him.

[x] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Customs and Border Patrol confirmed early today that 800 Venezuelans have been apprehended along our southern border attempting to cross into the U.S.  According to the Bidenistas, these intruders will most likely be given protected status meaning U.S. taxpayers will be footing the bill for decades to come as well as for their ever-increasing progeny.   In other border news, the Grand Old Party (GOP) claims that ‘IF we win back the majority in the House in 2022, we will refund the construction of the border wall.’  (Note- we believe that besides the wall, we should lay in minefields, obstacles for vehicles, boats, and people, as well as electrifying a second inner fence and the building of foo gas trenches past that.  We also believe that baby alligators must be seeded from the Deep South to the Rio Grande, and also that military bases should be relocated to the border, especially since we do much of our war-fighting in the Middle East.  Add to that the laying in of razor wire fences along the boundary line through the middle of the Rio Grande and the positioning of fast action helicopter and drone forces would also help halt the cartels just as targeted assassinations of coyotes would be good, too.  This would solve a lot of problems.  Period).
  82. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– at a recent confab of House Republicans, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned his fellow Republicans NOT to go soft on ongoing Chi-Com espionage operations ongoing in the United States.  We must remain vigilant.   Next, Israeli intelligence officials are planning a visit to Washington, D.C. to see their counterparts and to warn them that Joe Biden’s concessions to the Iranians are not beneficial for either nation.   Sadly, this announcement follows on the heels that former U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry, Democratic-Socialist, tipped off the Iranians more than 200 covert Mossad operations in Syria which makes him a prime candidate for prosecution under the Logan Act.  The POS scumbag did this while Donald Trump was the president of the United States.  Prosecute this loser and send him to federal prison.  Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan tells Joe Biden that he should reconsider calling the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  (Or else!).
  83. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– the Centers for Disease Control says that ‘summer camps in the U.S. may reopen as long as social distancing rules are observed and masks are worn.  Next, the Biden administration is sending vaccines and PPE gear to India, the nation now beset by the most cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Next, Chloé Zhao who won three Oscars at last night fiasco found her success censored in communist China because she criticized the communist nation.  Oi vie! 
  84. 2021 Monday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– First, Democrats continue doing everything to continue stealing elections what with 10 states seeking to empower felons leaving prison with the right to vote.   Next, as the effort to audit the 2020 Election in Arizona continue, the judge scheduled to oversee the effort- Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury- recused himself because some of the attorneys involved in the effort worked as interns for the court official. 
  85. 2021 Monday J: Joe Biden News– Ten U.S. states are suing the Biden administration over its ‘draconian climate change laws, rules and regulations.’  Good.  All 50 states and the U.S. territories and commonwealths should be suing the Biden administration, too.  Next, Joe Biden plans to feed 34 million schoolchildren via another high-priced plan.  Sorry, Joe, we can feed our own kids.  F— you.[xviii]  Next, President Donald J. Trump’s chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, says that ‘Joe Biden’s tax plan is an assault on investment and investors.’  Add to that the fact that critics are lambasting senile old Joe by reminding him of what he did back in 1972 with taxes and how now in demanding tax increases across the board, he is coming into conflict with both the GOP and SALT (state and local taxes) rebels.  Elsewhere, as if things are not bad enough for the inept Biden regime, Rep. Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s tax hike on capital gains is a MAJOR BLUNDER.’  Finally, America First Legal and Trump adviser Stephen Miller are filing lawsuits against the Biden regime accusing the bumbling Biden regime of RACISM in that its ‘plan’ to help ranchers and farmers is ONLY for black ones, not whites.  This is clearly racist and a violation of the American people’s civil rights.  NOT good for Joe.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Political News I–  Goofy Rep. Tim “Poached Egg Eyes” Ryan has officially announced that he is running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Rob Portman.  Big deal.   Next, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, says that the leaders of the GOP are ‘Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell.  We’ll see, Liz, we’ll see.  We’ll check back in on your in November 2022.   In other fascinating news, pundits are pointing out that Fox News LOSER Chris Wallace just cannot get beyond President Donald J. Trump nor the Antifa and Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Chris, there is a reason as to WHY we mostly no longer watch Fox News but especially the weekends when you are on the air.  POS.
  87. 2021 Monday L: Political News II– In Connecticut, District Court Judge Robert Chatigny has dismissed a law preventing trannys from participating in scholastic sports within the state.  WTF?  Next, former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA 9th congressional district, rules out a run for the governorship in the Peach State or for any other office.  Moving on, Democrats are sobbing big tears of grief because it looks like the 2020 Census is going to lead to the loss of numerous Democrat seats due to people pouring out of BLUE STATES and relocating to RED STATES that are going to get new GOP seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Add to that the redistricting that is going to happen and it would appear the Dems’ goose is cooked.  In other fascinating news, we learned today that 62-percent of WHITE LIBERALS are afflicted with mental illness.  Hell, we could have told you that without having to consult psychiatrists. 
  88. 2021 Monday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– For the first time in nearly two decades, SCOTUS agrees to hear a case regarding concealed carry of handguns.  Next, SCOTUS rejects the GOP’s bid to revive the PUBLIC CHARGE rule put in place by President Donald J. Trump that people seeking asylum in the U.S. had to be able to support themselves without receiving government aid.  Democrats can’t have that- they want to care for their low-wage slaves like they’re wee babes in need of Nancy Pelosi’s drooping breast milk.  Man, put it back into effect, let’s stop supporting illegal aliens and take care of the American people. 
  89. 2021 Monday N: Miscellaneous News I– An ‘Anti-Asian/Anti-Pacific Islander Hate Bill’ passes in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 99-1.  Good.  Democrats, tell the black Democrats to stop attacking the Asian and Pacific Islander Democrats.  The lone NO vote belonged to Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO.  He voted against it because he said it ‘was too broad and scope and could infringe on the rights of others.’  Speaking of Asian hate, a black man violently attacked an Asian man in New York City.   Next, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that the ‘U.S. Department of Justice is launching an investigation into the Louisville, Kentucky, police department in the aftermath of the death of Breonna Taylor.  (Note- another police department beats the dust). 
  90. 2021 Monday O: Miscellaneous News II– The Oscar ratings last night are even worse than last year’s what with 9.85 million viewers.  In 2020, 23 million tuned in and that was considered LOW.  Everyone is pointing out that WOKEISM is killing show business, it’s killing sports, and it’s killing the American way of life.  We must stand against WOKEISM at every turn which means, NO MORE MOVIES and NO MORE SPORTS.  In other news, first-time gun purchases are driving gun sales in the U.S.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump’s official portrait is now on display in the official gallery of presidential portraits.  Finally, 53 women made it through United States Marine Corps boot camp, a place that was formerly ALL male.  Congratulations.
  91. 2021 Monday P: Business News– Panera Bread Company is back in the black what with delivery and takeout meals.  Next, a Florida McDonald’s restaurant is paying people $50 just to show up and interview.
  92. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 510,837,666 confirmed cases, +767,216, 6,249,012 confirmed deaths, +3,439 and 464,046,721 confirmed recoveries, +960,671. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 82,789,716 confirmed cases, UP 55,853 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,019,008 confirmed deaths, UP 426,[xix] and 80,547,402 confirmed recoveries, UP by 40,466.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xx]
  93. 2022 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,715 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,960 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 461 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  97. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.684 per gallon, $4.137 in Florida, $5.249 in Hawaii, and $4.688 in Washington state.[xxvi]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Missouri- $3.758.  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 28th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Kyrgyzstan: $3.007 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,410,752,888,854 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxviii]  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 the United Kingdom the FOURTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland.  This nation holds $318,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  98. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the southern border for the past 389 days and it’s been 303 days since she showed up to do the job although she has an excuse at the moment: she is among the pandemic of the vaccinated.  Fully vaxxed, fully boosted, she has COVID-19- yet again– and yet, they still want everyone to undergo vaccination.  F**k them.  Ah, well, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegal alien invaders since New Year’s Day is $739,167,760.  The cost of caring for them since the un-dynamic duo took charge is $42,484,973,503.  Next, the number of illegals pouring into the country this year is 1,181,861.  Finally, the conservative low estimate is 46,613,518.  We suspect the truer numbers are closer to 95-to-135 million illegals which is godawful bad. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  99. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Rep. Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says ‘it’s great news that the judge blocked Joe Biden from ending Title 42.’  Speaking of Title 42, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced a new plan for what happens after Title 42 goes down on May 23, 2022.  Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th district, says that ‘IF Secretary Mayorkas won’t protect the border, he must go.’  We concur.  NOW.  Next, the world-famous ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  Hence, she is unavailable to do her job which she seemingly NEVER does.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

If you are aware of the King Biscuit Flower Hour series, then this one is a must-add to your collection.  The Band released a glorious archival release on June 24, 2014: “Carter Barron Amphitheater, Washington, D.C., 07-17-1976.”  This amazing concert recording came towards the end of their career, one that spanned nearly two decades, and which would then be reborn at a later date.  The Band roars all of its greatest tunes with the exception of one- the one we love the most- “Stage Fright.”  Fans of the Band give this album rave reviews which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out and then make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  You will be glad you did.

81. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 22, 2022, UPDATE A

Thank God, we have Tucker Carlson. He reported earlier this evening that a sizeable component of U.S. military troops is on the border between Poland and Ukraine. This shadowy component has NO media attached thus it is a stealth force. The question is, WHY? It appears whether we want to go to war or we don’t, we soon will be. It is the inevitable, wag-the-dog scenario…

  6. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.866 per gallon, $4.142 in Florida, $5.092 in Hawaii, and $4.726 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Tennessee- $4.032.  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 160th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Finland: $8.810 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]  (Note: the city of Los Angeles, California, has become the first city in the nation to hit an average of $6.00 per gallon for regular gasoline.)   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,335,300,726,138 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 People’s Republic of China the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom.  This nation holds $440,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– TotalEnergies announces that it will end the purchase of Russian oil by the end of the year.   Next, an Odesa, Ukraine, city councilman told Newsmax that ‘Ukraine backing out of NATO will not deter Russian President Vladimir Putin from his conquest of Ukraine.’  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says that ‘Russia talks tough, sometimes confrontational.’  Meanwhile, U.S. intelligence sources are reporting that Russian combat strength in Ukraine is below 90-percent.   They are suffering heavy losses at the hands of the Ukrainians.  Speaking of them, the city of Mariupol is still holding out against large numbers of Russian ‘Red Army’ troops trying to batter the port city into submission.  Tucker Carlson reported tonight that there are sizable numbers of U.S. military troops on the border between Poland and Ukraine with NO media components attached.  WTF is going on there- World War III slow-rolling along?   (Note- Ex-Russian President (and Putin stooge) Dmitri Medvedev blasts Poland for its unwavering support of Ukraine).
  8. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris- withering and dying on the vine like a diseased bunch of grape- has been in charge of the border catastrophe for the past 354 days.  It’s been 268 days since she arrived on scene to do her job.  The cost to the taxpayers of caring for the illegal alien invaders since the first of the year is around $513,837,373.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country since the drooling dunce in the White House took office is around $42,785,806,616.  Next, the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed across our southern border since bonehead in the White House took office is- in our estimation- 829,194.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens living in the United States is around 45,204,456.  We estimate the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is absolutely appalling, absolutely appalling.  Scoop ‘em all up, force them to spend time in the slammer, make restitution, pay fines, and then get them deported. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  14. 2022 Tuesday M: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump won a big one today when the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals- typically a liberal loony bin- found porn star, Stormy Daniels, at fault over her bogus lawsuit of the 45th president.  She must pay the president $300,000 plus all attorney fees, sanctions, and costs incurred by President Trump.  Suddenly, the fake news media has gone SILENT.
  15. 2022 Tuesday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– As Joe Biden continues fumbling on virtually everything like the border, Ukraine, and whether or not he is coherent, President Donald J. Trump is leading him by 12 points on favorability.   His ineptitude- and the insanity of his party- has given Republicans a 12-point margin in the Mid-Terms and President Donald J. Trump a 3-point advantage in a 2024 rematch between him and slobbering Joe Biden.
  16. 2022 Tuesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime condemns the ‘sham trial’ Alexei Navalny by his Russian captors.  Next, the U.S. Department of Defense for the first time since the China Virus pandemic began has failed to release its weekly COVID-19 numbers.
  17. 2022 Tuesday P: Political News I– Congressman Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd congressional district, says that Joe Biden’s Brussels trip is ‘way too little, too late.’  Next, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, lambasted the fake news media for shunning reportage of the Hunter Biden laptop story.   Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, signed a bill with which to prohibit the teaching of Critical (Criminal) Race Theory in colleges within the state.  In other news, Governor Eric Holcomb, RINO-IN, is facing pushback from his citizens following his refusal to sign into law a bill that would prevent tranny men from participating in girls’ and women’s sports.  Finally, voices are demanding that leading GOP gubernatorial candidate and former Governor Eric Greitens withdraw from the running if rumors be true, he abused his wife and children.  Oh, please, stop the BS.
  18. 2022 Tuesday Q: U.S. Senate News I– Day No. 2 of confirmation hearings for Judge Ketanji Brown-Jackson before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  Unlike when Republican nominees go to the Hill, she is receiving a smooth ride from both the GOP questioners and their Democratic Party counterparts.  On the one hand, Democrats were celebrating the color of her skin and the fact that she has a vagina while bolder Republicans such as Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, were asking poignant and hard-hitting questions on race and on sentencing for pedophiles.  We expect her to be confirmed and yet another stealth liberal candidate will be emplaced on the court.
  19. 2022 Tuesday R: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1748 what with a $39 million jackpot on the line: 08, 15, 21, 27, 61, and Mega 08.  Out of 51,782 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 41 people who had FOUR numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $332 apiece.

80. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MARCH 21, 2022, UPDATE A

According to Tucker Carlson, everyone’s ‘hero’ Volodymyr Zelensky has banned all opposition political parties, 11 of them, to be precise, an action he carried out over the weekend. What’s up with that? According to Tucker, the American people have a right to know what’s going on in that country seeing as how we are footing the bill for their part of the Russo-Ukrainian War. This mess is far more complex than anyone thought- WTF is going on?

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 549,387 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 186,332 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 425 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,072,268 confirmed cases, 88,386 confirmed deaths, and 8,539,835 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,879,715 confirmed cases, 72,767 confirmed deaths, and 5,806,948 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 238,764 confirmed cases, 1,368 confirmed deaths, and 237,396 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,446,845 confirmed cases, 12,355 confirmed deaths, and 1,434,490 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Arizona: they have 1,992,471 confirmed cases, 28,547 confirmed deaths, and 1,939,155 confirmed recoveries.[iii]

  5. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,552.99, DOWN 201.94 points (-0.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,838.46 DOWN 55.38 points (-0.40%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,461.18, DOWN 1.94 points (-0.043%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $112.85 per barrel, +11.20 (+11.02%).  The price of GOLD is $1,932.80 per troy oz., -10.40 (-0.54%) while the price of SILVER is $25.37 per troy ounce, -0.25 (-0.98%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,041.20 per troy oz, +9.90 (+0.96%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.01 (-0.14%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,564.18 per troy oz., -20.16 (-0.78%).

  6. 2022 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.855 per gallon, $4.167 in Florida, $5.087 in Hawaii, and $4.726 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: South Dakota- $3.929.  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 159th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Italy: $9.084 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,333,182,116,017 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 Japan the next largest holder of U.S. debt is People’s Republic of China.  This nation holds $1,072,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says that ‘Jerusalem is the proper place to hold talks with his Russian enemies.’  Next, the IAEA claims to have a deal brewing to protect nuclear facilities in Ukraine.  We continue asking a very important question about the United Nations: why do they exist?  They are not raising troops to enter Ukraine and bring peace to the nation.  No, they sit around like the losers they are looking the other way.  Expel them from the country NOW and let them relocate to Beijing with the puppet-masters. Next, a NATO official- unnamed of course- says that the Russo-Ukrainian War is rapidly becoming a stalemate.
  8. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Former Director of National Intelligence Ric Grenell says that ‘Joe Biden waiting for Brussels to act gives Vladimir Putin running room in Ukraine.’  In other Ukraine-related news, Tucker Carlson reported tonight that over the weekend, President Zelensky banned 11 political parties which brought him additional power.  He also is cracking down on domestic media outlets.
  9. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our esteemed- no, our exquisite Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 353 days and it’s been 267 days since she showed up on scene to do the job.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the U.S. since January 01, 2022, is in our estimation $507,024,800.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens in our country is an appalling $42,778,994,043.  Next, since the first day of the year, we estimate 818,962 illegals have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border which means we could see close to 3 million illegal aliens invading our country by the end of the year.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegals in our country is around 45,194,224 which in our view is EXTREMELY LOW.  We believe the number to be around 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is horrible.  Round ‘em up, imprison them for 20-30 years forcing them to work off their debt, and then deport them back to whence the f**k they came.  (Sources for AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and an honest-to-God education back in the day when educators ‘educated’ rather than ‘indoctrinated’).

  15. 2022 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is extending travel bans on Chi-Com officials over their persecution of Uighur Muslims and other religious and/or ethnic minorities in the People’s Republic of China.  Next, as World War III continues to brew, senile Joe Biden warns American businesses and corporations to expect Russian cyberattacks.  Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris has done again: since June of this year, a 10th staffer has thrown in the towel and said, “NO MÁS!”  That’s right, the national security adviser to the VP- Nancy McEldowney tossed in the towel and is getting the hell out of the slow-witted VP’s office for better environs.
  16. 2022 Monday O: Political News I– Former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin, Republican, told Newsmax today that she would be honored to fill the seat of recently deceased Congressman Don Young, R-AK.  Next, Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb, GOP, governor vetoes transgender ‘girls’ sports ban.  Uh, oh.  It appears the chicks with the dicks will be playing with the girls.   In other fascinating news, black employees of Google are suing POS Sundar Pichai and Google over racial discrimination towards them.
  17. 2022 Monday P: U.S. Senate News I– Hearings for U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer’s replacement- Judge Ketanji Brown- commenced today.  Everyone was respectful, U.S. Senate Judiciary Chairman “Drippin’ Dick” Durbin, DS-IL, said ‘there will be NO disruptions,’ and when Senator Josh Hawley’s turn came for opening remarks, he gave her a head’s up that he would be asking questions as to WHY she was so lenient with child rapists, pornographers, and pedophiles.  This led to immediate outrage in the press over him bringing up this issue.  What an evil, evil white man, to ask a potential SCOTUS nominee as to why she gave light sentences to child molesters?   Unlike hearings for GOP Supreme Court nominees, no one raised a ruckus in the gallery on Day 1 and had to be removed from the room.  Contrast that with the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.  Wow.
  18. 2022 Monday Q: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #965 what with a $156 million jackpot on the line: 01, 15, 26, 63, 65, and Power 16.  Out of 42,340 winning tickets, the highest winners were 29 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $411 apiece.

1854 Monday: Approximately 50 anti-slavery abolitionists got together in Ripon, Wisconsin, to form what would become the modern-day Republican Party.

  52. 2003 Thursday: The United States, Great Britain, Australia, and Poland invade Iraq sans United Nations sanctions.  Airstrikes have already been crisscrossing the country and it appears that the Iraqis are unprepared to contend with this assault.  Little did the Coalition troops know that Saddam Hussein had a plan, a good plan.  Government forces disappear into the shadows and an insurrection fueled by religious extremism will blossom in it’s place.  That won’t happen for several months however…
  53. 2004 Saturday:  In Taiwan, despite being shot in the stomach by an unknown assailant, President Chen Shui-bian wins another term as president.  The results are close, so his opponent decries the election as ‘unfair’, but the results hold firm.   Meanwhile, in the United States, millions of people in this country and across the world take to the streets protesting the first anniversary of the war in Iraq.  It started out well and everyone in Congress- including the Democrats- were onboard but as soon as it went south, everyone was all over President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney (especially him), and the administration.
  54. 2005 Sunday: In Fukuoka, Japan, the first major earthquake to hit in more than a century occurs killing one person and injuring numerous others which also causes massive evacuations.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice arrives in Beijing to meet with Chi-Com President Hu Jintao.
  55. 2006 Monday: In Chad, the rebel movement seeking to overthrow President Idris Deby launches an attack in the eastern part of the country that kills 150 government soldiers and injures countless others.   Meanwhile Russian thug Vladimir Putin visits Beijing to discuss energy projects with Chi-Com thug, Hu Jintao.
  56. 2007 Tuesday: Democrats continue screeching and whining about the Bush White House firing a bunch of federal attorneys.  President Bush agrees to permit White House Chief of Staff Karl Rove and former White House Counsel Harriet Miers testify but NOT under oath.   Meanwhile, the French government signs an extradition treaty with communist China.  They will ONLY extradite people involved in DEATH PENALTY CASES and only if the communists agree not to condemn the individual to death.  Typical European thinking.
  57. 2008 Thursday: The communist Chinese are having a hell of time trying to quell the rising unrest in Tibet.  Well, go figure- the Chi-Coms are interlopers and Tibet is NOT their country; yet they claim it, persecute their people, and are searching for the Dalai Lama as though he is a common criminal.   The Dalai Lama offers to meet with the Chi-Coms but in response they load up hundreds of military vehicles loaded with soldiers to crush the INDEPENDENCE MOVEMENT.
  58. 2009 Friday: Somali pirates board their swift boats and take to the high seas attacking the Greek-flagged cargo ship, MV Titan. 
  59. 2010 Saturday: In Lebanon, the authorities arrest four of their citizens, accused of being recruited by the Mossad to spay on their fellow citizens.  As the authorities take them in, two manage to escape and make it into Israel.  Jerusalem remains mum on the incident.  Meanwhile, in Russia, people take to the streets to protest the policies of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin who continues erecting a Soviet-like police state block by block by block.  Finally, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, former 37th U.S. Interior Secretary Stewart L. Udall died at age 90.  A Democrat, Secretary Udall served under Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Baines Johnson from January 21, 1961, to January 20, 1969.
  60. 2011 Sunday: The Arab Spring continues: the people of Morocco turn out in the thousands to demand an end to corruption and civil rights for all citizens.  Bahrain is experiencing problems as is Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Libya.  Arabs across the Middle East are hopping mad with their governments and their governments are taken by surprise.  It will lead to a complete restructuring of much of the Middle East.   
  61. 2012 Tuesday: Violence continues to rage across Iraq with 50 people killed and another 240 plus injured as terrorists conduct suicide bombings, shootings, kidnappings, and other violence.  At least 10 cities are experiencing a wave of violence.  Elsewhere, Pope Benedict XVI appoints three new bishops for the United States- one in Baltimore, Maryland, the second in Tallahassee-Pensacola, Florida, and the third in Cheap Trick’s[vi] home, Rockford, Illinois.
  62. 2013 Wednesday: Zillur Rahman, age 84, the president of Bangladesh, dies in office after a prolonged illness at a hospital in Singapore; the government declared three days of mourning.  Meanwhile, following the U.S. State Department’s comments on next month’s Venezuelan elections, Caracas cuts off a back-channel line of communications with Washington, D.C.  The Venezuelans would NEVER dream of holding corrupt or crooked elections not with Smartmatic Software and allegedly Dominion Voting Systems machines, allegedly.
  63. 2014 Thursday: Rising Asian demand for Champagne will represent increasing export growth, with Japan currently the fourth-largest export market after the U.K., the U.S. and Germany.   Meanwhile, the world is growing increasingly upset with the Russian occupation and annexation of the Crimea but there is nothing anyone will do to stop Vladimir Putin’s road to conquest.  Next, and even more perplexing, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, orders an investigation into HOW and even more important WHY the CIA ‘breached’ the U.S. Senate’s Select Committee on Intelligence’s computers.[vii]  
  64. 2015 Friday: The creator of “Berry’s World,” cartoonist Jim Berry, dies at age 83.  Meanwhile, former Liberal Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Fraser (served 1975-83) dies at age 84.  Elsewhere, ISIS releases video of the executions of three Kurdish peshmerga soldiers and announces with glee that ‘there are going to be more from where those came.’  Savage sons of bitches, we need to radiate all of them.   Meanwhile, in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., former drummer Anthony “A.J.” Pero of Twisted Sister died at age 55.
  65. 2016 Sunday: President Barack Hussein Obama and his family arrive in Cuba for a three-day visit.  He was the first U.S. president to visit the island nation since 1928.  His visit, however, was the first by any American president since the island went communist in the 1950s so thank you, Mr. Obama, for being such a pro-Castro POS.
  66. 2017 Monday: The American psychotherapist who coined the term ‘homophobia’ dies at the age of 87.  We do not know if Dr. George Weinberg was himself a homosexual but he’s the one who crafted the term.  Meanwhile, confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the seat of late Justice Antonin Scalia commence today.  Of course, liberals are hopping mad over the fact that their guy, Merrick Garland, never had a hearing but it is what it is.  Elsewhere, fired FBI Director James Comey is going to testify before the House Intelligence Committee today.
  67. 2018 Tuesday: Actress Cynthia Nixon from “Sex in the City” announces she will run for New York governor.  She would go down in flames to the dimwit Andrew Cuomo.  Meanwhile, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House.  Elsewhere, after allegations of rape and other sex crimes continue hammering Harvey Weinstein- close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton- the Weinstein Company files for Chapter 11 protections.
  68. 2019 Wednesday: According to the World Happiness Report, Finland is the happiest country on planet Earth while the South Sudan is the least-happiest nation.  Meanwhile, South Korean authorities arrest four scumbags for secretly filming at least 1,600 hotel guests doing the nasty and selling the footage to online Websites. Elsewhere, Disney forks out $71.3 billion to buy 21st Century Fox and all its individual parts.  Next, U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras issues a ruling that HALTS oil and natural gas drilling in Wyoming.  The reason: climate change.   
  69. 2020 Friday: The Chinese Virus is sweeping across the world.  At first, health authorities- especially in the United States and Europe- were very dismissive of the Wuhan Flu whereas now, businesses are closing and a two-week mandatory order in the U.S. is enacted.  “Two weeks to flatten the curve and then life can return to normal” is the mantra.  People like the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci told us early on that masks were not important whereas now, everyone must wear them if they wish to journey out to the doctor or to big box stores.  Toilet paper, paper towels, Kleenex and napkins have become a thing of the past.  The shelves of stores are being stripped clean with only foodstuffs people don’t like clinging to the shelves.
  70. 2021 Saturday: BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS- the latest report that began hitting the news late yesterday evening is that the Biden administration is seeking air transport to begin moving the tsunami of illegal aliens crossing the southern border to the northern border so CBP officials can begin processing them there.[viii]  The northern border has been quiet since the arrival of COVID-19 caused all operations to be suspended so now, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ brainy new idea is let’s load all the illegal aliens aboard aircraft, move them to the border with Canada, and deal with them there.  Secretary Mayorkas, how about this: HOW about loading them aboard transport aircraft and send them back to whence they f**king came?  Enough is enough already.  Meanwhile, dingbat House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi claims ‘Joe has the border mega-disaster under control.’  Awesome.  We may need to reevaluate our views on the Chi-Coms.  At least they would NEVER prevent suicidal stupidity such as what the Biden administration is afflicting onto the people of our country.
  71. 2021 Saturday A: BORDER CATASTROPHE NEWS II- Governor Greg Abbot, R-TX, is demanding state authorities inspect the illegal alien holding pens at least out of public health and humanitarian desires.  Illegals are crammed into shipping containers, into the backs of trucks (300 found in the back of a Mexican truck), fresh water, decent food, showers, and other hygiene provisions as well as COVID-19 checks are sadly lacking, and the frigging Democrats had the never to criticize the Trump administration for how it ‘treated’ its illegals.  The Trump administration cared for them and even better, made it extremely difficult to come here so millions of Third World illegal aliens did not all begin marching north.  The Biden administration must deal with this, or we will discover YOU did steal the election on November 3, 2020, and boot this criminal regime out of office.  (Speaking of te stolen election, the Arizona Senate has ordered the hand recount of 1.3 million ballots from the election out of fear that MASS FRAUD was committed by the Democrats).   Meanwhile, Congressman Clay Higgins, R-LA 3rd congressional district, the ranking member of the House Subcommittee on Border Issues is seeking an audience with Joe Biden.  The crisis must be stopped (or the American people, we suspect, will step up and fix the problem themselves).
  72. 2021 Saturday B: JOE BIDEN NEWS- Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-Fl 1st congressional district, tells news people that Joe Biden is the image of ‘weakness,’ especially after falling on the stairs of Air Force One three times yesterday (maybe Vice President Kamala Harris slathered some lube on those steps?).  Congressman Gaetz, we will raise it one step higher: Joe Biden is the posterchild of ‘weakness,’ he’s the milk carton image of weakness, this aging image of senility is putting our country in danger.   Wake up, America, before it’s too late.   Meanwhile, Franklin Graham slams Joe Biden for ‘offending Putin’ as well as for backing ‘abortion at all stages.’  We suspect the reverend is not happy with Biden angering yet another one of our opponents, Vladimir Putin, as all we need is everyone ganging up on us at one time.  Next, Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is handing the border over to the drug cartels.’  Finally, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, says that the ‘communist Chinese think they can roll Joe Biden.’  Of course, they can.  
  73. 2021 Saturday C: DEMOCRAT PARTY NEWS- brand-new HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge is already in trouble.  For being on U.S. government property- we believe the White House press room, she was electioneering as to who she believed should run against outgoing Senator Rob Portman, R-Ohio.  Secretary Fudge says that either Dayton, Ohio, Mayor Nan Whaley or fellow Democrat Congressman Tim Ryan, D-OH 13th congressional district (and failed presidential candidate), would make great senators.  In an effort to deflect from the secretary’s woes, Democrats are trying to save everyone in the Trump administration was electioneering all the time.  Bulls**t.
  74. 2021 Saturday D: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS- several of the justices have come to the court to meet in person ahead of oral arguments next week.  This is the first time since the arrival of COVID-19 that justices are meeting in person. 
  75. 2021 Saturday E:  REPUBLICAN PARTY NEWS- GOP lawmakers in the state of Georgia are working on new legislation that will prevent large nonprofit organizations from interfering in Peach State elections.  Apparently, there are no restrictions on how much money these nongovernmental entities can throw into campaigns, campaigns they seek to alter so the outcomes are favorable to them.  Most of these organizations like Stacey Abrams are hardcore leftist groups.  We bid them good luck in stopping this interference.   Elsewhere, Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district says that the ‘Dems radical agenda is on full display what with wide open borders and the House Democrats trying to steal the certified election of Mariannette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district.  Everyone can see exactly what they are doing.    
  76. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- The organizers of the Olympic Games in Tokyo this year have decided that NO foreign fans can attend any of the games.  Due to the COVID-19 running amok around the world, they think it’s best to prohibit outsiders- other than the athletes- do not attend.  Probably just as good seeing as how they just had a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit the same area around Fukushima nearly a decade ago.   Nobody wants to be caught in a disaster like that.  Elsewhere, a long dormant volcano- hasn’t erupted in 781 years- came to life on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula, 20 miles or so south of the nation’s capital of Reykjavik.  Authorities in that country are not worried because they believe it to be in a somewhat remote, isolated area.  Let’s hope so.
  77. 2021 Saturday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II: Federal agents investigating New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo are closing in on the capsizing Empire State’s chief executive thanks to evidence gathered by the state’s legal department and supplied to the U.S. Department of Justice.   Elsewhere, the outer fencing around the U.S. Capitol is supposed to be coming down sometime this weekend.  Next, a judge says that the anti-GOP media is a threat to American democracy, true democracy, not this Democratic-Socialism the liberals are trying to force down our throats.  Meanwhile, a probe into golf champion Tiger Wood’s recent automobile accident says the evidence shows there was no sign the legendary golfer tried to slow down ahead of the curve.  Finally, former Trump political adviser Steve Bannon is asking that his indictment be dropped seeing as how President Donald J. Trump issued him a pardon.
  78. 2021 Saturday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III: NASA conducted a successful test of its Artemis rocket engines, the ones that will power a new generation of astronauts to the moon and back sometime in 2024.  Meanwhile, former Florida Senator Bill Nelson, Democrat, is up for the head job at NASA.  A three-time senator and former astronaut, Joe Biden nominated him to head the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.   Next, prosecutors now have 12 sexual misconduct charges going against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.  We hope the guy didn’t do what they say he has but it looks like that POS Colin Kaepernick could be heading to Texas instead of Seattle.  Praise the Lord!   Finally, in Mexico’s Chiapas’ state capital, Tuxtla, a parade of law enforcement, immigration officers, and National Guardsmen- hundreds of them in fact- conducted a march against human trafficking which is upending the region thanks to the ‘migrant president’- Joe Biden (Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador gave him this name).
  79. 2021 Saturday I: ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIME NEWS- U.S. Marshals tracked down a POS illegal alien child predator- 46-year-old Juan Jimenez-Salas- accused of raping his Arkansas girlfriend’s two young daughters.  This illegal alien child rapist managed to escape and was tracked down to Texas.  When he tried to resist the arrest, the marshals shot the scumbag dead.  Jimenez-Salas had been deported at least once 20 years ago for similar crimes.  Apparently when law enforcement rolled up on this lowlife victimizer of the defenseless, he did everyone a favor, pulled a firearm, and was shot dead.  Excellent.
  80. 2021 Saturday J: NOTE- THE FOLLOWING NUMBERS ARE THE SAME AS YESTERDAY’S- Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 121,882,440 confirmed cases, +297,052, 2,692,806, confirmed deaths, +7,036, and 69,033,271 confirmed recoveries, +144,348.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,905,513 confirmed cases, up 58,699 from yesterday’s reporting, 545,131 confirmed deaths, UP 1,650, and 116,597,906 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.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 216,654 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- El Presidente, in another two-and-a-half weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    
  81. 2021 Saturday K: 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: 3,638,515 confirmed cases, 57,391 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,678 confirmed cases, 452 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 355,397 confirmed cases, 5,224 (DOWN ONE) confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., the commonwealth of Puerto Rico: currently, they have 137,510 confirmed cases, 2,092 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 827,220 confirmed cases, 6,082 confirmed deaths, and 800,514 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Portugal, former colonial powerhouse and now a sunny destination on the map- 817,080 cases of the ‘VID, 16,762 confirmed deaths and 766,924 confirmed recoveries.
  82. 2021 Saturday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.878 per gallon, $3.609 in Hawaii, and $3.314 in Washington state.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,077,536,864,432 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  83. 2021 Saturday N: Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3544 with a $30 million pot on the line for some lucky person: 03, 23, 27, 34, 37, and Mega 13.  Out of 127,805 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO MEGA for a prize of $20,650 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Drawing #830 with a prize of $200 million on the line: 01, 06, 22, 42, 61, and Power 04.  Out of 94,505 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $25,626 apiece.
  84. 2021 Saturday O: Julia Letlow won a special election in Louisiana today, the one to fill the seat vacated by her late husband, Luke.  The Republican won the 5th congressional district seat.  Another special election is heading for a run-off on April 24, the one to fill the seat vacated by Democrat Cedric Richmond who went to serve as special adviser to Joe Biden.  Two Democrats secured spots in the battle for the 2nd district congressional seat.  Still, you never know what might happen in these crazy times…
  85. 2022 Sunday: stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band more or less reformed in the early 1990s sans Robbie Robertson and on November 02, 1993, released the critically acclaimed, “Jericho.”  The lineup featured three stalwarts- Garth Hudson (keyboards/accordions), Rick Danko (bass/fiddle/harmonica/vocals), and Levi Helm (drums/vocals/mandolins/guitars)- with Richard Manuel guesting on vocals and piano.  Joining the reformed group were Jim Weider (guitars/vocals), Stan Szelest (electric pianos), Rick Bell (keyboards/accordions/vocals), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), along with guest spots by loads of other talented and well-known musicians.  While people missed Robbie Robertson’s exceptional songwriting and famed guitar, the Band demonstrated that yes, they were more than just Robbie’s ‘backup’ performers but amazing musicians in their own right- which they most certainly are.  We hope you will seek this album out as it is the first of a trio of new works to come.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we do.

[vii] Obviously, this is President Barack Obama’s thug’s handiwork, CIA Director John Brennan.  Obama is spying on his own flipping people.

[viii] Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, R-NY, 21st congressional district blasted the Biden administration for this incredibly stupid idea.  Amen, congresswoman.

77. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2022, UPDATE A

This truly isn’t funny, but you know what? With World War III rapidly approaching, prior to Joe Biden speaking to his boss, Xi Jinping today, the Chi-Coms sailed an aircraft carrier around Taiwan while Saudi Arabia invited Joe’s boss to visit Riyadh, soon. Yet, the Saudis won’t answer his phone calls. What is up with that?

77. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2022, UPDATE A:

This truly isn’t funny, but you know what?  With World War III rapidly approaching, prior to Joe Biden speaking to his boss, Xi Jinping today, the Chi-Coms sailed an aircraft carrier around Taiwan while Saudi Arabia invited Joe’s boss to visit Riyadh, soon.  Yet, the Saudis won’t answer his phone calls.  What is up with that?

  1. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 468,424,614 confirmed cases, +1,952,455, 6,093,827 confirmed deaths, +5,928 and 399,298,817 confirmed recoveries, +1,419,762.

  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 547,633 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 184,578 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 422 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,061,091 confirmed cases, 88,190 confirmed deaths, and 8,972,901 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,876,649 confirmed cases, 72,592 confirmed deaths, and 5,804,057 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 238,764 confirmed cases, 1,368 confirmed deaths, and 237,396 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,445,223 confirmed cases, 12,333 confirmed deaths, and 1,432,890 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Michigan: they have 2,378,439 confirmed cases, 35,418 confirmed deaths, and 1,421,905 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,751,049 confirmed cases, 10,417 confirmed deaths, and 3,698,791 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Bermuda, 184th place on the list: 12,094 cases of the virus, 126 confirmed death and 11,697 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,754.93, UP 274.17 points (+0.80%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,893.84 UP 279.06 points (+2.05%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,463.12, UP 51.45 points (+1.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $105.10 per barrel, +2.12 (+2.06%).  The price of GOLD is $1,921.50 per troy oz., -21.70 (-1.12%) while the price of SILVER is $25.14 per troy ounce, -0.48 (-1.88%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,029.80 per troy oz, -1.50 (-0.15%) while the price of COPPER is $4.72 per pound, +0.01 (+0.30%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,491.00 per troy oz., -19.18 (-0.76%). The price of RHODIUM is $19,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,130,000.00 per CNY/T,-10,000.00 (-0.72%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,498.00 per USD/T, +133.50 (+3.35%). The price of ZINC is $3,878.00 per USD/T., +52.50 (+1.37%).   The price of COCOA is $2,537.00 per USD/T, +33.00 (+1.32%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,193.00 USD 1,000 board feet -14.00 (-1.16%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000024.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.36 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.90 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.34, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 99.00 of theirs.    In Vietnamese Dong, one greenback equals 22,860.00 and in West African CFA Franc, a buck equals 588.75 and in Yemeni Rial, one dollar equals 250.00 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.800 per gallon, $4.236 in Florida, $5.118 in Hawaii, and $4.723 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Pennsylvania- $4.346.  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 156th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Denmark: $8.500 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,326,737,892,272 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 Australia the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates.  This nation holds $32,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russia is putting nations helping arm Ukraine on notice, that they, too, will pay a price for their perfidy.  A new report says that 222 people were killed in the recent missile attacks on the western Ukrainian city of Lviv which includes 60 civilians and about four children.  As if that’s not bad enough, the latest refugee figures claim at least 6.5 million people have been displaced in Ukraine due to Russia’s indiscriminate attacks on civilian targets.  Elsewhere, down in Mariupol, there is a desperate effort to rescue the civilians trapped beneath the rubble of a theater Russian missile attacks destroyed yesterday.
  8. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Although reports continue suggesting the leader of Chechnya is in Ukraine guiding his assassins, Kyiv reports that this is NOT so.  In other news- music to the ears of Dick Morris- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov praises Fox News Channel’s and Tucker Carlson’s coverage of the Russo-Ukraine War.  In other news, Ukraine says it will require years to diffuse the massive number of mines sown all over the country.  Hint: make Russian POWs do the job.  Anyone ever seen the movie, “Land of Mine?”  After that, a former Ukrainian defense minister says that warplanes are needed NOW to drive the Russkies out.
  9. 2022 Friday H: World War III– As war fears continue growing, we learn now that a widening war is going to cause massive foot shortages across the globe.  Congressman Austin Scott, R-GA 8th congressional district, echoed this when he told Newsmax today that the Russo-Ukraine War could bring about global food shortages.  (Note- this is the trouble with globalism, an interconnected world that one piece is yanked from it and the entire world suffers).  Meanwhile, a new Zogby poll says that a sizeable portion of adults in the country are extremely worried about the prospect of ‘nuclear war.’
  10. 2022 Friday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The Department of Homeland Security is calling for the immediate removal of a massive herd of illegal aliens being kept at an ICE facility in New Mexico.  How about deporting them back to f**k they came before the American people have to begin taking matters into their own hands?  Ah, well, today is Day No. 350 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border and Day No. 264 since the knock-kneed skank showed up to do her job.  Okay, the cost of caring for the army of illegal aliens since January 01, 2022, is- in our estimation- $487,920,672.  Next, since senile Joe Biden entered the White House, the cost of caring for the vermin is around $42,765,592,515.  Whoa.  Since the first day of the year, we estimate 786,789 illegals have crossed the border which makes the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens living in the country is in our computations, 43,557,163.  We believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-125 million.  Don’t laugh.  We believe it to be TRUE.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  11. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and the people of Ukraine have been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.  Next, it’s clear that Russian President Vladimir Putin watches U.S. politics and learned something from President Donald J. Trump: the power of a massive, televised pep rally.  Surrounded by tens of thousands of cheering supporters, President Putin promised his fellow countrymen that Russia would ‘achieve all her goals in Ukraine’ meaning they are going to de-Nazify the country and crush the drug addicts running the Eastern European nation.
  12. 2022 Friday K: Foreign News-Overseas News II– Ahead of Joe Biden meeting with his boss in Beijing today- Chairman Xi Jinping- the Chi-Coms sailed one of their two aircraft carriers around Taiwan.   The Shandong sailed off the coast of the country the Chi-Coms claim is their territory.  We tend to believe that Taiwan is the legitimate China whereas the People’s Republic of China are the usurpers, sort of like the Biden regime.

  18. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden White House slammed Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, for having voted against the bill that would provide $800 million to Ukraine for immediate support.  The only problem with the bill is that elected Democrats will be siphoning off loads of money into their back pockets beginning with the ‘Big Guy’ eating split pea soup in the bowels of the White House basement.  Still, the ‘Big Guy’ spoke with his boss in Beijing today- Chi-Com bigwig, Xi Jinping- and warned his boss to get onboard with the sanctions the so-called ‘46th president’ want to impose on Russia.  Whoa.  Must have been a fun call.   What’s even worse is that Riyadh invited Chairman Xi to visit Saudi Arabia soon whereas when Joe Biden tries to call the Saudis, NO one answers the phone.
  19. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– U.S. Intel reports (like we can trust what our intelligence agencies claim anymore- remember Iraq and the WMDs?  Yeah, right) report that up to 7,000 Russian soldiers have been killed in Ukraine and more than 21,000 wounded in action.  Intel also reports- shades of Vietnam- that Russian soldiers are shooting themselves in the legs and feet so as not to have to engage Ukrainians in combat.  Wow.  A new Rasmussen poll says that ’60 percent of Americans disapprove of Joe Biden’s job performance.’
  20. 2022 Friday S: Political News I– With the world on the cusp of World War III, House Democrats are pushing the Biden regime to ‘declare a climate emergency.’  Enough with the f**king climate, imbeciles.  It’s bogus.  Another Democrat- Congressman Frank Pallone, D-NJ 6th congressional district, is demanding that SIX BIG OIL CEOs come and testify before Congress as to WHY gasoline prices are going UP?  Look, they’re going up because Democrats have done everything in their power to drive them UP.  It’s on YOU.  Finally, even after slobbering Joe Biden called for a ‘return to normalcy,’ most Democratic offices in the U.S. Capitol remain closed. Scumbags.
  21. 2022 Friday T: Political News II– Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, continues saying about Russian Vladimir Putin what they said for the past decade about Syrian President Bashar al-Assad: ‘it’s going to be very difficult for Putin to remain in power.’  Uh, we shall see.  Not that we are Russian lovers but our money’s on Vlad.  Congressman Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd congressional district, blasted U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and U.S. intel, calling them ‘naïve on Russia.’  In a similar vein, Congressman Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says there’s ‘no sign an unhinged Putin (why does everyone say this?) will relent in his attacks anytime soon.’
  22. 2022 Friday U: Political News III– U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd congressional district, said something everyone should know today: that IF the GOP reclaims the House in November, Intel Committee Chairman Adam “Bug Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, will be out as chairman.  Of course, he will (or so we should hope.  This guy needs to be in prison).   Meanwhile, Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, said today that Joe Biden refuses to condemn communist China’s and Iran’s support for Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian endeavor.
  23. 2022 Friday V: Political News IV– Unlike the Democrats who are doing NOTHING to solve rising gasoline prices, Peach State Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, signed a bill into law which suspends the collection of gasoline taxes.  At least this loser is attempting to help his citizens contend with the skyrocketing gasoline prices.  Elsewhere, two losers- former Presidents George W. Bush (architect of the Iraq War 2003) and William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton (architect of Somalia, Yemen, and other parts of the Muslim world) went to a Ukrainian church in Chicago to ‘pay their respects.’  Please.  You two are LOSERS.
  24. 2022 Friday W: Political News V– Ahead of U.S. Supreme Court hearings for nominee, Judge Ketanji Brown, Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, blasted her habit of giving light sentences to pedophiles.
  25. 2022 Friday X: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Alabama’s mea culpa: the now famous LGBFJB license plate issued to a vehicle in the state WON’T be censored.  “Let’s go Brandon!”
  26. 2022 Friday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1747 what with a $29 million jackpot on the line: 02, 06, 25, 40, 45, and Mega 05.  Out of 48,502 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $11,871.

  72. 2017 Saturday: At age 90, Dr. Thomas Starzl, the American surgeon who performed the first successful liver transplant, died.   Meanwhile, in a move that draws derision from the ‘Yes Mob’ Fake News Media, President Donald J. Trump alleges that during the 2016 Presidential campaign, President Barack Hussein Obama had Trump Tower in New York wiretapped.  Later, this turned out to be true.  The Obama administration wiretapped loads of people connected to the Trump campaign.
  73. 2018 Sunday: To much anger around the world, in Salisbury, UK, former Russian intelligence agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulla suffer poisoning by a poison known to exist only in Russia, thereby showing the tie between the two and Vladimir Putin.   Elsewhere, FAKE NEWS reports that President Trump in a speech to GOP donors at Mar-a-Lago says that the 45th president congratulated communist Chinese President Xi Jinping on him ‘eliminating term limits,’ reporting that Mr. Trump wants to do the same thing as president of the United States.  Oh, really now…
  74. 2019 Monday: Crybaby Democrats announce yet another wide-ranging investigation into ‘corruption’ surrounding President Donald J. Trump.  What a bunch of sniveling ankle-biters.  Meanwhile, much to the horror of liberals and communist Cubans alike, the Trump administration announces it will permit U.S. citizens to the Com-Cubes for redress for property that Havana stole from them during the Revolution. 
  75. 2020 Wednesday: After the drubbing dished out by Joe Biden the previous day on Super Tuesday 2020, the midget Mike Bloomberg announces he is dropping out of the presidential race and will support former Vice President Biden.  Despite spending more than $600 million to BUY the nomination, he bows out of the race with only 53 delegates and ONE win, in American Samoa.  Meanwhile, Mr. Biden won Alabama, Arkansas, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia (566 delegates total) while the old commie, Bernie Sanders won California, Colorado, Utah, and Vermont (501 delegates total).  Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren won 61 total delegates from the start of the contest and could not even carry her home state.  She is a loser and should bow out of the race like Bloomberg did.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Com Virus continues to spread…
  76. 2020 Wednesday A: In Detroit, Michigan, member of the Motown act, the Supremes- Barbara Martin (1960-1962)- dies at age 76.
  77. 2021 Thursday: DAY 44 of the Biden Regime- what the heck is “Senile Joe” and his Chi-Com puppeteers up to today?  Stick around and uncover whatever plot they are trying to foist onto the American people.  You know it can’t be any good…House Democrats fled last night after voting on their bogus Marxist bills, claiming today would be a day when WHITE SUPREMACISTS LED BY DONALD TRUMP WERE GOING TO STORM THE CAPITOL.  Meanwhile, the Senate remains in Washington, D.C., doing its thing.  The Democrats are SO FULL OF FECAL MATTER…UPDATE on this story: NO WHITE SUPREMACISTS STORMED THE CAPITOL TODAY!
  78. 2021 Thursday A: In the aftermath of the passage of the “George Floyd Justice in Policing Act,” the one authored by Democratic-Communist lawmaker Karen Bass of California, the GOP is pointing out the fact that the law goes too far in neutering law enforcement by stripping officers of qualified immunity and slashing federal funding to police departments across the nation among other things.  Here is OUR opinion: IF YOU WANT TO SEE A RISE IN VIGILANTISM, STAR CHAMBERS, AND LAW ENFORCEMENT DOING WHAT LAW ENFORCEMENT MUST IN THE SHADOWS, THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO ENGINEER THIS.  We expect that local citizens and law enforcement officers will work together undercover eliminating threats to local communities.  It is what it is…likewise, American citizens will do what they must to protect our border. 
  79. 2021 Thursday B: In other Joe Biden news, we learn today from a leaked classified report that the Biden administration is incarcerating illegal alien minors longer than the law permits.  Where is all the outrage?   Even worse, the Biden administration FORBIDS ALL PRESS from visiting the illegal alien holding pens.  Porque?  Add to that the fact that the Dems are NOT enforcing any Chinese Virus restrictions on the tidal wave of illegal aliens crossing the border should tell everyone that the Chi-Vi is little more than a political scam. 
  80. 2021 Thursday C: In other ‘Joe Biden’ news, he is now the first president in nearly a century NOT to hold any solo press conferences within 5-7 weeks of assuming office.  Joe Biden has done NOT a single press conference on his own.  This should confirm to everyone that senile Joe is a vegetable, that we have a vegetable for a commander-in-chief.  Wow.  Next- in other Joe Biden news, his pick for Pentagon policy adviser, an Obama-Biden retread, a member of the “C” team- Colin Kahl- said in a 2019 interview that the “GOP is the party of ethnic cleansing.”  Wow.  Joe sure knows how to pick them.
  81. 2021 Thursday C: Meanwhile leaked reports from the FBI go against what ‘esteemed Director’ Christopher Wray said during his testimony this week that there was NO armed insurrection at the nation’s capital on January 6, 2021, which is yet another rebuttal of Democratic-Socialist claims.  Alas, the riots predicted to occur today, the one that caused House Democratic-Socialists to flee to safe zones across the country have so far not occurred.  What a load of political theater crap.
  82. 2021 Thursday D:  Tennessee law enforcement officials report the results from a months’ long investigation into missing children within the borders of their state what with the successful recovery of at least 150 children from a total of around 239.  God bless you.  We must fund law enforcement.   In other ‘law enforcement’ news, the father of Michael Brown is demanding $20 million from the racist Black Lives Matter group who came to prominence burning down Ferguson, Missouri, years ago after the ignorant kid assaulted a police officer and got himself shot.  We don’t think pop is going to receive a dime.  Like Cindy Sheehan, he has NO more value to the Marxist group.
  83. 2021 Thursday E: The Democratic-Socialist-controlled U.S. Senate is holding the passage of the $1.9 trillion Chinese Virus ‘relief bill’ up as they seek ways to lighten the cost of Biden’s PORKULUS.  Billions of dollars of the previous ‘relief bill’ are still sitting unused so what the f**k?  In other U.S. Senate news, Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, says ‘the real victims of the Chi-Com Bat Virus are children, children being isolated in their homes due to the oppressive lockdowns and restrictions in many parts of the country.’  Let’s lift them NOW!  Speaking of lockdowns and restriction, Ohioans are asking WHY Governor Mike DeWine, RINO, won’t lift the restrictions like Texas and Mississippi are?  Vote the bum out of office!  Next, Republican senators have authored a bill for term limits on all federal officeholders.  Come on, Chuck, hold some hearings on that one…
  84. 2021 Thursday F: The Customs and Border Patrol announces that the illegals crammed into the ‘clown car-like SUV’ that collided with a semi-tractor-and-trailer eight miles north of Calexico managed to come through a large gap cut into the border wall and were speeding north when the dumbasses collided with the truck killing at least 15 of the 27 illegal aliens stuffed inside the vehicle.  Did the Biden administration cut the hole in the fence?  We await further information.   Note- this is WHY we need vehicle traps, anti-personnel trenches, foo gas pits, and minefields.  It’s an invasion, folks, an invasion.
  85. 2021 Thursday G: Famed Tiger King- Joe Exotic- has hired new attorneys so he can take another crack at having his sentence for attempted murder overturned.  We wish him luck.  Meanwhile, as the Cancel Culture (NOTE- the AICPENDBLOG.COM cancels the cancel culture) continues taking names and numbers, Dr. Seuss- recently ‘canceled’- sees his books rise to all-time high sales as the demand for them skyrockets.  A full set of around 58 Dr. Seuss books- including the banned ones- sells for a cool $999.99 at Amazon.com.   Anything Cancel Culture cancels typically increases in value.
  86. 2021 Thursday H: Former Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams slams the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci on his two-shot COVID-19 plan.  Meanwhile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci now says thing ‘might not get back to normal March 2022.’  Fascinating how the goalposts continue moving with this schmeckel.   Elsewhere, numerous Catholic bishops are now blasting the Johnson & Johnson Chi-Com Virus vaccine as ‘morally compromised’ seeing as how cells culled from abortions are involved in both the manufacturing and testing of the anti-Chi-Com Wuhan Virus.  We would not take this s**t.  In other COVID-19 bat and pangolin news, a report suggests that locales in which a high proportion of the population is obese (which does not require much to receive a declaration as such), deaths are ten-times higher.   Finally, after Joe Biden labeled Texas and Mississippi as being ‘Neanderthals’ for throwing their societies open, both Texas Governor Greg Abbott and Missouri Senator Josh Hawley return fire and label senile Old Joe as the ‘Neanderthal’ for not knowing what the f**k he’s even doing.  Joe- we have your Neanderthal swinging.
  87. 2021 Thursday I: GOP lawmakers continue speaking out against H.R. 1, the so-called “For the People Act” which is really the “Democrats in Perpetual Power Act,” because it’s nothing to do with voting rights but about circumventing voting rights as numerous states did during the November 2020 Elections.  Representative Scott DesJarlais, Tennessee’s 4th congressional district, says that the ‘Democrats have changed the rules of the game to win elections.’  Likewise, Representative Jim Jordan, R-OH, says the Democrats are ‘codifying election fraud’ via H.R. 1.  Speaking of the 2020 Elections and the upcoming 2024 Presidential Election, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp now says he will support President Donald J. Trump?  What?  Another rat trying to save his hide (like Mitch McConnell) by now rallying to President Trump after throwing him under the bus?  Kemp won’t be governor after November 2022 because Doug Collins is going to beat him like an old Green Stamps drum.
  88. 2021 Thursday J: Some news sources are suggesting that Mike Pompeo could seek the 2024 GOP presidential nomination IF Donald Trump should not run for office.  In other GOP news, state Republican lawmakers are working to neutralize any prohibitions of the Biden administration imposed on Second Amendment rights.  God bless you.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump slams the Wall Street Journal by noting they have lost ‘great credibility.’   Next, famed U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger says that ‘Joe Biden would be wise to hang onto the Trump administration’s successes with Israel and various Arab states such as Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Sudan.’  We expect senile old Joe to spend all his time kissing the derrieres of the Iranians and the Palestinians.   
  89. 2021 Thursday K: Cochise County, Arizona, Sheriff Mark Dannels says that ‘Joe Biden’s pullback from the U.S.-Mexico border is creating highways for Mexican cartels to transport drugs, human beings and possibly even terrorists into the United States.’  Sheriff Bill Waybourn of Tarrant County, Texas told Chris Salcido of Newsmax that the cartels are insinuating criminals and thugs into the United States.   Representative Andy Biggs, R-AZ, says DHS Secretary Mayorkas totally wrong, that border officials are being swamped by the massive invasion of illegal aliens.  Again, we say, “Light ‘em up,’ we must do what we must to save the country.
  90. 2021 Thursday L: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 115,467,624 confirmed cases, +470,711, 2,565,369, confirmed deaths, +10,455, and 65,296,409 confirmed recoveries, +262,009.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,066,212 confirmed cases, up 68,142 from yesterday’s reporting, 523,852 confirmed deaths, UP 2,348, and 96,781,572 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 195,375 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  (Note- send the J & J vaccine overseas).
  91. 2021 Thursday M: 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: 3,582,359 confirmed cases, 53,099 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 441 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii finally has an update.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 345,271 confirmed cases, 5,075 confirmed deaths (same as yesterday), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Nevada: currently, they have 295,082 confirmed cases, 5,085 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 789,485 confirmed cases, 5,803 confirmed deaths, and 741,167 confirmed recoveries.  Alabama not quite ready to leap onto the “NO MASK MANDATE” other southern states are doing.   Meanwhile, Larry Kudlow- Donald Trump’s economic adviser Larry Kudlow- says the ‘key to reopening the U.S. economy is vaccinations, not multi-trillion-dollar COVID-19 relief bills.’  Amen.   Next, the leader of Ontario, Canada, is disappointed that Joe Biden is not sharing the Wuhan Virus vaccine with the Canucks.   Finally, the CEO for Warnermedia issues an apology for saying the China Virus pandemic has ‘been really good for our ratings.’  Insensitive pig.   (Note: President Jair Bolsonaro tells the Brazilian people that following the record numbers of Chi-Vi deaths, to ‘stop whining’).
  92. 2021 Thursday N: Friends, we have predicted a collapse of stock markets and commodities by early summer.  Here we are, stocks and commodities are beginning the downward slide thanks to the accumulated policies of ‘President Joe Biden’ and the Democrats.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,924.14, DOWN 345.95 points (-1.11%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,723.47, DOWN 274.28 points (-2.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,768.48, DOWN 51.25 points (-1.34%).  The price of GOLD is $1,694.60 per troy oz., -6.10 (-0.36%) while the price of SILVER is $25.36 per troy ounce, -0.10 (-0.40%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,130.00 per troy oz, -5.30 (-0.47%) while the price of COPPER is $3.95 per pound, -0.03 (-0.78%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,342.80 per troy oz, -11.60 (-0.49%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.27 per barrel, +0.44 (+0.69%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.13.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.81. 
  93. 2021 Thursday O: Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu vows to ‘stand against the world fighting the Iranian nuclear deal.’  Speaking of that, Israel has dispatched a submarine or two to the Persian Gulf after the Iranians attacked an Israeli-owned cargo vessel.  The Biden Administration is slapping sanctions on Myanmar’s military and government leaders.  Lot of good those will do.  Elsewhere, Bytedance is working on a Clubhouse-like app for its Chi-Com users.  Next, a Senate panel approves the nomination of Debra Haaland to become the next secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior.
  94. 2022 Thursday: Stick around for the latest…

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know.  This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members.   Please stay tuned.

[ii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[iv] 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.

[v] Not sure when we will present the music of this famed Canadian American rock band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  The Band ranks among the all-time greatest rock bands of the 1960s and 1970s.  You won’t want to miss them.

[vi] NO economic plan put forth by President Barack Obama over his eight years in office ever generated the promised results.  It was not until Donald Trump became president that the economy began going like gangbusters.  The proof of how inept the Obama administration was is in the way in 2020 Obama tries to take credit for the Trump economy, claiming that it was ‘his.’  No, Mr. Obama, you did NOTHING to create the economy we are now enjoying.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
