Trump comes to us from an article in The Atlantic magazine in which in 2018, the president called fallen U.S. soldiers at a U.S. military cemetery “losers and suckers.”  Four unnamed sources claim this is so just as they contend that President Trump also ‘didn’t think that wounded U.S. soldiers should participate in military parades.’  Most people believe that Generals John Kelly and “Mad Dog” Mattis are two of the sources, but the sources say they won’t come forward out of fear of ‘angry Tweets.’  Uh, okay.
  70. 2020 Friday A: When federal agents go to arrest the Antifa POS who murdered Aaron “Jay” Danielson, a member of Patriot Prayer, a conservative peace group in Portland, Oregon, last weekend, the perp- Michael Reinoehl drew a handgun and was shot dead.  Good riddance.  Meanwhile, in San Francisco, Speaker Nancy Pelosi finds herself under verbal assault as protesters go after her for violating her own rules about wearing face masks and not going to hairdressers for indoor appointments.  The old bat continues claiming ‘I was set up.’  We hope that AOC-backed Shahid Buttar cleans your clock on November 03.

Qassim Soleimani.  Light ‘em up!

  86. 2022 Sunday: I guess I could have told you so: Joe Biden is a feeble fool, AG Merrick Garland is a cowardly POS, and the entire FBI is as my colleagues have labeled it, the Joestapo, cowardly scum Joestapo at best.  I thought for sure the Biden administration would swoop down on Trump at his racist rally in P.A. last night and drag him off in cuffs for the numerous crimes he has committed on the country but oh, no, the sniveling losers allowed it to go on which tells me that it’s all a big show and that they know they are going to be destroyed come November.  I am going to go independent.  I cannot take this anymore nor can my family.  All those MAGA Maggots and NO FBI crackdown.  What a bunch of losers.  It makes me sick.  See you in six months- If I haven’t been dumped.  Chef Itzi Nakamura.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  At the time, we damned sure should have promoted the music of its various members such as Roger “Jim” McGuinn, Chris Hillman, Gene Clark, David Crosby (along with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young and their associated catalog of group and solo endeavors), as well as later Byrds such as Gene Parsons and Skip Battin, among others.  We hope to do so one day and hope that you will indulge us when we do.

[ii] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[iii] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too. 

[iv] We are not sure as to when we will promote the music of the Pretenders but when we do, you will be the first to know so rejoice.

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

[vi] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] The father of Mitt Romney who plagues our modern times with his RINO BS.

[viii] Sadly, we were not as attuned to the sharing of interconnected bands and musicians when we promoted Santana years ago, but we do hope we will be able to promote the music of Journey at some point in the nest 10-12 years.

  59. 2020 Monday: President Donald J. Trump ‘shocks’ his enemies, uh, the Fake News Media, when he informs them that he has been taking hydroxychloroquine along with zinc- and possibly another medication- as a prophylactic against communist China’s ‘gift to the world’ COVID-19.  Shortly afterwards, Fox News Channel host, Neil Cavuto goes berserk on his program, yelling, “IT CAN KILL YOU!” He then tries to coerce open-minded guests into condemning Trump, too, but they won’t which says much about them.  Here are our stats for the day regarding the Wuhan Virus: Global Cases: 4,801,282 number of confirmed cases, 318,464 number of confirmed deaths, but 1,786,829 number of confirmed recoveries which is excellent.   In the United States, we have 1,537,830 number of confirmed cases, 90,964 number of confirmed deaths, but 288,842 number of confirmed recoveries. 
  60. 2020 Monday A: In the three states in which the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, the NEW AICPENDBLOG.COM, has chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, California first: 78.839 number of confirmed cases, 3,261 number of confirmed deaths, but NO number of confirmed recoveries thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom playing politics- the slime.  Next, Hawaii has 640 number of confirmed cases, 17 number of confirmed deaths, but 573 number of confirmed recoveries which is amazing- thank you, Gov. Ige.  Finally, in Washington state, we have 18,611 number of confirmed cases, 1,002 number of confirmed deaths, but 0 number of confirmed recoveries.  Some states are not even providing the world with daily updates which is incorrect, too.  This seems to be the way things are going to be.  Communist China lies, Blue State governors and mayors lie, which should inform everyone of sound mind and healthy body that the Wuhan Flu is being used for POLITICAL PURPOSES.  Remain alert, especially for legitimate figures out of Beijing because what they report is simply not the truth.
  61. : COVID-19 Statistics for the planet as a whole: 164,870,330 confirmed cases, +598,180, 3,417,628  confirmed deaths, +13,406 and 145,007,613 confirmed recoveries, +84,172.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,773,385 confirmed cases, UP 25,946 from yesterday’s reporting, 601,301 confirmed deaths, UP 704,[v] and 27,247,206 confirmed recoveries, UP 53,345.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]   
  62. : Note: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 284,987 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 174,622 deaths.     
  63. : 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: 3,770,980 confirmed cases, 62,720 confirmed deaths, and 2,013,858 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,296,785 confirmed cases, 36,236 confirmed deaths, and 1,897,257 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,889 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 425,771 confirmed cases, 5,696 confirmed deaths, and 205,439 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Diamond Princess Ship: they have 46 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 46 confirmed recoveries.[vii]    One America News reported today that recent reports suggest that thousands who have received both does of the Chi-Vi vaccine have tested positive for the lab-created disease while dozens more have succumbed following the second injection.  The question is WHY?  Very few in the news media are seeking proper answers to this perplexing question.   Speaking of this ‘vaccine,’ Joe Biden is going to send millions more doses of the vaccine overseas.  Our bets are on many of them going to Gaza Strip and to Iran.  We will see.
  64. : Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,167 confirmed cases, 6,392 confirmed deaths, and 832,144 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Latvia, a former ally of the Nazis during World War II: 128,688 cases of the virus, 2,280 confirmed deaths and 117,799 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  65. : Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,060.66, DOWN 267.13 points (-0.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,303.64, DOWN 75.41 points (-0.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,127.83, DOWN 35.46 points (-0.85%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.11 per barrel, -0.38 (-0.58%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.20 per troy oz., +1.20 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $28.22 per troy ounce, -0.11 (-0.40%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,219.90 per troy oz, -5.40 (-0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $4.71 per pound, -0.02 (-0.37%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,906.79 per troy oz, +0.68 (+0.02%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $28,200.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.70%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.84.     In Uruguay Peso, one greenback equals 44.18 and in Uzbekistani Som, a buck equals 10,572.00 and in Vanuatu Vatu, one dollar equals 105.87 of theirs.[xii]     
  66. : 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 $4.135 per gallon, $2.889 in Florida, $3.873 in Hawaii, and $3.543 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Vermont: $2.941.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Haiti: $2.256 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,302,127,496,812 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  67. 2021 Tuesday: Joe Biden Regime News I– In yet another massive giveaway of U.S. taxpayer dollars, Joe Biden’s new ‘child tax credit’ will begin dumping billions of dollars into the pockets of American parents- including ILLEGAL ALIEN parents- beginning on July 15.  Wow.   Speaking of Joe Biden and billions of dollars, the enfeebled old faux president is calling for dumping billions more into ‘cybersecurity’ following the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline and the paying of 4-5 million dollars in ransom.  In other despicable news, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says the ‘Abraham Accords are dead on arrival.’  WTF?  Those were the best Middle East peace deals in generations, ones that reconciled Arabs around the world with Israel.  We know where Joe Biden’s loyalties lie.   Elsewhere, the ongoing violence between Israel and the barbarians in Gaza overshadows the ‘domestic agenda’ of the Biden regime.   Finally, the Biden regime is seeking to confiscate the phone records of journalists as they try to find who is behind numerous leaks.  Of course, they say they are following in the footsteps of the 45th president’s administration but we simply do not believe that.  Democrats are totalitarians and totalitarians are Democrats.  Period.  
  68. 2021 Tuesday: Political News I– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, does not support the Democrats demand to create a ‘bi-partisan commission to delve into the origins of the FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021, the Capitol Hill Riots, aka the ‘Insurrection’ led by Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators who stormed the Capitol and who terrorized lawmakers.   We think it’s a political witch hunt.   Regarding Rep. McCarthy, that loser Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, says that ‘IF the GOP retakes the House, she won’t vote for Leader McCarthy to become the next speaker of the House.’  Oooh, we bet Rep. McCarthy is trembling in his boots.  (Note- Liz, just join the Democratic-Socialists, which is precisely what YOU are).  Finally, in New York, Andrew Giuliani has thrown his hat into the race for governor of the Empire State.  Awesome.
  69. 2021 Tuesday: Political News II– The Portland Oregonian reports that 53-percent of polled Portlanders NO longer feel safe in their city or that they want to continue living there due to all the Antifa and BLM riots that seemingly go on around the clock 24/7/365.  Who can blame them?  Next, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom claims that the ‘surplus’ the Golden State has is $38 billion larger than it truly is.  (Note- you know the Democrats have suckled at the teats of the taxpayers so look into their bank accounts).  Moving on, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says the Lone Star State is going to refuse federal enhanced unemployment monies.  It is time for citizens to return to work.  The governor of Texas also is banning ALL mask mandates for schools and other public places. Elsewhere, Governor Kay Ivey, R-AL, signed a bill into law that criminalizes citizens in her state from voting in other states.  Amen.  Finally, churches in the Golden State win a court case against Governor Newsom’s harsh and overbearing COVID-19 restrictions imposed on places of worship.   
  70. 2021 Tuesday: Political News III– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer is releasing a new book that blasts Democrats’ court-packing schemes.  Dems are not going to like this as he is ‘one of theirs.’  Next, Mallory Quigley says that the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the Mississippi anti-abortion law case is a watershed moment for the Pro-Life Movement v. the Pro-Death Movement.  The new Mississippi law says abortion past 15 weeks is forbidden unless, of course, the life of the mother is in danger.  We hope the high court decides in favor of LIFE as should everyone else.   Elsewhere, the Pentagon plans to monitor all troops’ social media posts as they try to root out extremists in their ranks (meaning WHITE extremists).[xvi]  Next, the White House and the GOP cannot arrive at an agreement on how to move forward with the infrastructure talks.
  71. 2021 TuesdayPolitical News IV– Palestinians in the U.S. are clogging up the streets of major American cities as they protest the violence in Gaza, violence their leaders in Hamas began and now can’t finish.  We hope the Israelis go full-blown pest control mode and clean this vermin out of their ratholes.  Hamas is the SOLE reason as to WHY Palestinians are dying.  If you don’t want to DIE, then stop launching frigging attacks on Israel.   Speaking of Israel, an AP source says the Bidenistas are encouraging Israel to halt its Gaza offensive.  (Note- the Israelis will halt it when they are good and ready).  Meanwhile, a poll suggests that at least 42-percent of Democrat voters would NOT vote again for pathetic old drooling Joe Biden if he is still around in 2024.   (Note- we could have told you that and the percentage will continue going up).  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a new HATE CRIMES bill after the massive spike of BLACK DEMOCRATS assaulting ASIAN-AMERICAN DEMOCRATS across the country.[xvii]  Next stop, the desk of Joe Biden (or whoever the f**k is really running the show.  Some say Barack Hussein Obama while others say it’s Susan Rice.  Still, others claim Dictator for Life Xi Jinping is the secret hand pulling the strings.  We are still investigating but one thing is clear- we have a Manchurian Candidate in the White House as we speak). 
  72. 2021 Tuesday: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega-Millions jackpot Draw #1660 is sitting at $475 million.  Here are the numbers: 03, 05, 56, 61, 66, and Mega 04.  Out of 195,392 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $183,291 apiece.
  73. 2022 Wednesday: We’re running behind, but we are still here.  Next year will be glorious.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys returned with another awesome studio album on July 05, 1965: “Summer Days (and Summer Nights).”  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), as well as some additional guests such as future Beach Boy, Bruce Johnston (vocals, keyboards, and percussion).  Once again, we have a load of long-time beloved tunes such as (1) “Salt Lake City”; (2) “Girl Don’t Tell Me”; (3) “Help Me, Rhonda” (again); (4) “California Girls,” and (5) “Let Him Run Wild.”  Although the album sold loads of copies, the Beach Boys were becoming aware that writing similar tunes about the same topics was beginning to grate on some music critics which began to turn some of the more enlightened listeners of popular music away.  Chief songwriter Brian Wilson would begin having to evolve to keep the family band at the top of the heap, especially since they were in competition with the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and the Kinks.  We hope you will check it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

64. 2020 Saturday: Sadly, Chi-Com/Democratic Party-backed anti-Thanksgiving protests continue in various parts of the country with statues being defaced or torn down and businesses destroyed. It is time for police to do this duty and to begin cracking down on this socialist-communist scum.

Trump chooses Representative Tom Price, R-GA, to be his Health and Human Services secretary.  Mr. Trump announces he is set to meet with former Governor Mitt Romney tomorrow in his quest to discover the perfect fit for U.S. secretary of state.  That should be interesting.   
  61. 2017 Tuesday: In the U.S. Senate, the Budget Committee passes President Donald J.

  68. 2020 Saturday E: Speaking of the Chi-Vi, let us present to you the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox, communist China’s gift to the world and a boon for Democrats who want to exercise their fascist skills in locking down people’s lives like California’s hypocritical snowflake Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 62,094,127 confirmed cases, +593,035, 1,449,709, confirmed deaths, +9,203, and 37,750,055 confirmed recoveries, +474,550.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 13,351,024 confirmed cases, UP 168,297 from yesterday’s reporting, 269,562 confirmed deaths, UP 1,239, and 6,528,128 confirmed recoveries, UP 62,077.

Thanks to failing health, I pray to God every election cycle to let me live long enough to cast my vote which He did; now, I am praying He will see me through to November 2022- Gavin Newsom has got to go

ENDNOTES:

[i] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was a mind-altering experience.  Absolutely amazing to be sure.

[ii] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[iii] See the preceding footnote.

[iv] We hope to do the music of Soundgarden within the next five years along with Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, and other groups of their era.

[v] We hope to do the music of Pearl Jam within the next five years along with Soundgarden, Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, and other groups of their era.

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

[vii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point.

[viii] We began offering albums by this veteran Canadian American rock band on Friday, 25-May-2012 until the final day of Sunday, 17-June-2012.  We encourage everyone to check out the music of this group as they are still rocking to this day with original vocalist John Kay at the helm.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
