  59. 2014 Monday: “Nymphaea,” a painting in Claude Monet’s “Water Lilies” series, is auctioned today for a price of $54 million; this is only the second-highest price paid for a Monet – another painting in the series sold in 2008 for $80.3 million at auction.
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Amazon.com joins the bandwagon against the Confederate flag following the shooting committed by Dylann Storm Roof the previous week.  Although many Americans see, the flag as part of the nation’s history—from the Civil War—many among the American people see it as a symbol of racism and want it removed.  Elsewhere, NASA’s Mars Odyssey completed its 60,000th orbit around the Red Planet.  The spacecraft entered orbit around the fourth planet from the Sun on October 23, 2001.
  61. 2016 Thursday: On this date, the people of Great Britain flock to the polls to vote in the Brexit Referendum.  The majority of Brits vote to leave the corrupt European Union which sets in motion near-constant problems among younger Brits who don’t want to go and with the EU who wants them to stay no matter what.

  64. 2019 Sunday: Upset Czechs, numbering around 250,000 take to the streets- not for a Black Lives Matter protest but because they are angry at the nation’s Prime Minister Andrej Babis.  The protest occurs in Letna Plain Park and is the biggest public protest since the days when the communists ruled the country.  Elsewhere, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan stepped down from his position on this date.  A member of NO political party, he served under President Donald J. Trump from January 01,2019 until today.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: The FBI announces that the rope- not calling it a NOOSE- found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage has been there since last October.  Since the garage assignments were only made recently, they cast doubt on the ‘act’ being deliberate.  We will keep the readership posted.  UPDATE ON PREVIOUS STORY: HATE CRIME HOAX.  Next, the European Union says it ‘may ban Americans from visiting Europe’ over COVID-19 concerns.  Okay.  Finally, President Trump visits the southern border to celebrate more than 200 miles of new border wall going up and the fact that numbers of illegal aliens attempting to cross is down by 86-percent.  At a Students for Trump rally in Arizona, it is clear the president has loads of support.

Currently, Joe is shy 159,371 deaths

  74. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 92 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, to be in charge of the border and yet to have shown up for a single day’s work.  Still, a new pronouncement says that “Kooky Kamala” is going to tour the border this Friday so she can see the mayhem for herself.  Of course, this comes after last week’s announcement by President Donald J. Trump and Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, that the pair would tour the border next Wednesday, June 30, with at least 12-15 other Republicans.  President Trump says- and rightfully so- that ‘Kooky Kamala Harris would NEVER have visited the southern border IF Trump had not announced that he was going.’  Amen.  In other border calamity news, the Biden regime is going to give illegal aliens who failed to show up for their ASYLUM HEARINGS a second bite at the apple by welcoming deportees back to try again.  F**king Joe.
  75. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the numbers from One America News that shows both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens as well as the magnitude of this unnecessary disaster: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the Illegal Aliens $529,629,760.  (2) Total Amount this Year of caring for Illegal Aliens: $190,118,690,816.  (3) Total number of illegal aliens who have crossed in 2021: 1,948,564.  Finally, (4) Total ESTIMATED number of illegals in the United States: 35,948,564.[xvii]  (Note- we have estimated since the inception of this blog that there were between 35-and-50 million illegals in the United States- back in 2009, no less- whereas now, we believe we have 75-100 million illegals in the United States and the numbers only continue growing.  Time to call in pest control services).
  76. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News– A Russian warship fired warning shots at a Royal Navy vessel transiting the Black Sea.   Meanwhile, the Intel community prophesies that the Afghan government could ‘topple’ within months of the U.S. pullout.  Folks, we have been there more than 20 frigging years and if the SOBs are not prepared by now to fight their own war, then it demonstrates the entire thing was a waste of resources and lives.   Elsewhere, reports have arisen saying that Russian naval vessels have approached within 2 dozen miles off the coast of various Hawaiian islands as they continue pushing the bounds and gathering intelligence.  What is clear is that NO one fears the ‘slobberer-in-chief,’ “Cho-Mo Joe’ Biden sitting in the White House basement spanking his wank.  (Like son, like father, we guess).  (Note- we expect that a new Axis of Russia, the Chi-Coms, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and second- and third-line allies of these nations will soon launch actions across the world because “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to do NOTHING in response.  We mean, why would they not?  It’s open hunting season against the U.S.)
  77. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– USC and the Rand Corp. show the results of a recent study that excessive lockdowns and restrictions related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis caused more problems than they helped.  Of course, the libs have no desire to hear this but it’s true- depression, emotional issues, alcohol and drug abuse, apathy and suicide went up, up, and UP.  Elsewhere, 153 staff members of a Methodist hospital in Houston have either been fired or been forced to resign over their refusal to take the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  Stand strong, people, stand strong.  Next, further reinforcing the beliefs of millions of Americans that the vaccines are either unnecessary or dangerous or both, the malevolent little dwarf, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci rushes out to claim the ‘Delta variant of the Chi-Vi is deadly but getting one of the vaccinations will protect one from its ravages.’  Right on time there, “Phony Tony.”  (Note- when is this lying POS going to be fired?  His time is up, folks).
  78. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that Joe Biden should have pressed the Chin harder over answers as to the origins of the China Virus.  Good for you, senator.   Next, regarding the evil ‘Delta variant’ of the Xi Jinping Pox, health authorities are telling us that both AstraZeneca and Pfizer are effective at combatting this new, fearsome variant from the Wuhan Bat Lab.  In other Chi-Com Virus news, the U.S. government seized an unauthorized shipment of Chairman Xi Kung Flu vaccines heading to Mexico.
  79. 2021 Wednesday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News-Oregon County officials have visited the ongoing Arizona 2020 Election audit so they can possibly replicate it in their counties.   Next, Michigan Republicans want to replicate an Arizona-style election audit in their state.  We say, “Go for it!”
  80. 2021 Wednesday L: Joe Biden News– Slobbering Joe Biden blames young people for sabotaging his efforts to get 70-percent of the American people vaccinated with one of the Chi-Vi vaccines roaming the land.  The more information that continues coming to light showing numerous adverse effects- especially on young people- the less people are inclined to get the shots.  NO MORE, JOE!  Meanwhile, Joe Biden nominates Cindy McCain to a U.N. post- the Food and Agriculture post, an ambassador-level position.
  81. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News I– Twenty-two GOP state attorneys general are fighting to protect the Hyde Amendment from rampaging Democrats who want to blacken everyone’s soul by using taxpayer dollars to fund the PRO-DEATH MOVEMENT.  God bless them.   Next, the National Security Agency- the NSA- is reaching out to the private sector to help them combat hackers.  Speaking of hackers, esteemed (yeah, right) FBI boss Christopher Wray is encouraging hacked businesses not to pay the hackers ransoms.  Okay, what can they do?  What is the FBI doing on behalf of American businesses? 
  82. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News II– In New York City’s mayoral race, candidate Adams widens lead over nearest competitors Wiley and Garcia while Andrew Yang throws in the towel.  Sorry, Andrew, it appears you are as electable as is Robert Francis “Beto the Bullshitter” O’Rourke.  Maybe you should return to Taiwan?   In other political news, a majority of Republican voters say that ‘Critical Race Theory is a definite danger to the republic as founded.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis has signed a new bill forcing colleges and universities to teach the EVILS of communism to their students.  About damned time. 
  83. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News III– Next week, we hear that the United States and the communist Chin are holding some sort of talks.   Next, political genius Dick Morris says that ‘Donald J. Trump is confident that the media will break its silence on the election audits.’  Elsewhere, Senator Josh Hawley says it’s time to hire 100,000 new police officers to combat the rising crime wave.  Amen.  Elsewhere, a new Rasmussen poll says that 41-percent of the American people do not believe that Joe Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election ‘fair and square.’  NO one we know does.  The guy bragged about having the largest voter theft organization in the history of the country.  Time to remove him from office.  Meanwhile, as Georgia Democrats continue screeching and wailing about the clean-up of the voter rolls in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, says that his government is following federal law ad it cleans up its voting rolls.  
  84. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News IV– RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says, ‘let’s concentrate on winning 2022 before we begin worrying about 2024.’  Amen.   Next, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that ‘without an increase in the debt ceiling, the United States could default on its debts by early August.’  This would collapse the country.  Jesus Christ, folks, the spiral of debt continues spinning like the spinning wheel spins (so sang Blood, Sweat & Tears back in the early 1970s).
  85. 2021 Wednesday Q:  U.S. Supreme Court News– The U.S. Supreme Court in an 8-1 decision handed the foul-mouthed cheerleader a big win today reaffirming the rights of Americans to freedom of speech.
  86. 2021 Wednesday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s up to his old tricks once again babbling on about how he is going to do something about gun violence.  He goes after lawful gun owners while giving thugs and gangbangers a pass on shooting one another in the streets.   What a loser.  Next, a new poll says that 56-percent of the American people do not support the Biden regime’s screwed up handling of the Israeli-Palestinian issue.  We believe that’s true.  Most Americans want to see the Palestinians obliterated off the face of the globe so the entire Middle East could enjoy an extended peace.  It’s clear that Joe Biden loves the Palestinian Untermensch. (Note- must be money going into Joe’s back pocket somewhere in the money-go-round).
  87. 2021 Wednesday S: Joe Biden Regime News II– The Joe Biden regime is launching a new campaign to go after ‘devious and crooked’ gun dealers whom they believe are selling guns out the backdoor to criminals and others who cannot own them.  Joe wants to take guns away from law-abiding criminals while doing nothing to go after criminals who misuse stolen guns to commit heinous crimes.  Once again, we have yet another prime example of how the people ‘elected’ to lead us hate our guts.  Joe says the Second Amendment does not permit the ownership of cannons and other weapons but if you read the amendment, it does not specify what types of weapons one can own.  We favor constitutional carry and have taken great pains to make sure when the “Joestapo” shows up at the door, they won’t find our guns.  F**k them.
  88. 2021 Wednesday T:  Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The Pentagon rejects the charge that the U.S. military has gone WOKE.  By saying they have ‘not gone WOKE’ when everyone knows they have demonstrated beyond the shadow of a doubt that the Pentagon has drunk long and deep from the well of toxic WOKE Kool-Aid.  Not a suitable time to enlist in the military folks.  We will wait until President Donald J. Trump returns to the White House, hopefully soon.   Elsewhere, a Loudoun County school board meeting in Virginia goes all to hell as people protesting the gender insanity being forced on their kids get hauled away in handcuffs to the hoosegow including parent Jon Tigges who came on the Tucker Carlson program on Fox News Channel.   The fuzz declared the meeting attended by hundreds of American patriots an ‘unlawful assembly’ and waded into the midst of the attendees, fighting with people who most likely have been BIG SUPPORTERS of the cops up until now.  Look for that to change.   Finally, as the LGBTQIA+ Nazis continue demanding we pay attention to the pronouns preferred by all the snowflakes and twinkies out there, let’s just call everyone, “Comrade.”  Is that acceptable?
  89. 2021 Wednesday U: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin to be sentenced this Friday.  Everyone expects him to be sent away for 30 years.  We expect him to get a retrial, especially as how the judge allowed corrupt individuals onto the jury and that insane racist skank, Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd congressional district, went to Minneapolis the weekend prior to the verdict coming in and ginned up the threat of violence IF the jury acquitted Officer Chauvin.  “Prune Face” should be doing time in a federal slammer for jury tampering.
  90. 2021 Wednesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News– Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, has put forth a bill censuring the slobberer-in-chief, Joe Biden, over his criminal mishandling of the crisis along the southern border. 
  91. 2021 Wednesday W: U.S. Senate News– The U.S. Senate GOP successfully smacked down H.R. 1, aka S. 1- the “For the People Act” aka the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act” via a unified stance.  This is great because it would allow the Democrats to federalize the system of elections that would be little more than a blatant power grab.[xviii]
  92. 2021 Wednesday X: Maryland State News–  Former DNC bigwig Tom Perez, DS, has thrown his hat into the ring for governor of the Old-Line State.  Wow.  This guy is nothing more than a political hack much like the Clinton bagman, Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe, who is trying to become the governor of Virginia again.
  93. 2021 Wednesday Y: Sports News– Organizers for the upcoming 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo announced today that they are banning alcohol sales and prohibiting fans from getting autographs from their favorite Olympians.  Next, defensive lineman for the Las Vegas Raiders Carl Nassib comes out as the first active openly gay player in the NFL.  Big whoop, he will be taking showers by himself from this point henceforth.  At least Michael Sam had to go to Canada to play and up there, he didn’t last long.  We expect Nassib will be out of the league within a year or two.
  94. 2021 Wednesday Z: Observation of the Day– This segment segues in perfectly.  All this talk about trannys- chicks with dicks– competing in the Olympics is insane just as it is for every other level of sports.  IF women must compete with sick boys claiming to be girls (like that ‘looker’ from New Zealand, the weightlifter), girls should be allowed to ‘dope.’  If they can dope, then they can stand an even chance at defeating this emotionally mixed-up boys; otherwise, it’s time to create a third category of sports- TRANNY SPORTS.  We have the ‘Special Olympics,’ let’s have the “Tranny Olympics.”  I bet more people would watch the ‘Tranny Olympics’ because who doesn’t like watching a good carnival freak show?  We know we do.
  95. 2021 Wednesday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Super Lotto Draw #3571 has a $57 million on the line tonight.  Meanwhile, the Powerball Draw #857 has a $63 million pot up for grabs so please, stick around and see the results.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 04, 09, 38, 40, 41, and Mega 25.  Out of 133,078 winning tickets, the highest winners were 25 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $983 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 13, 20, 40, 51, 63, and Powerball 01.  Out of 43,922 winning tickets in California, the highest winners was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $25,624.
  96. 2022 Thursday: Here is where we were ONE YEAR AGO TODAY when Chef Vladdie was doing the week: How soon before the new American ‘Gestapo’ (the Joestapo) shows up in the middle of the night, flashing their Nacht und Nebel badges to signify we no longer have any rights and can be arrested in the dead of darkness?  Remember: there are more than 75 million of us and it’s going to take them several years before they can accomplish the highly lampooned but equally true “Replacement Theory,” you know, the one in which American voters are replaced with a foreign-born population.  Of course, that’s just ‘QAnon shit, right?’   Stick around to uncover the events of the day along with the rest of us…then again, we probably will publish them NEXT year.

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

[ii] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] 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.

[iv] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Knack but one day, we most surely will.

[xviii] So as not to appear hypocrites like Democrats always do, we have pushed for a uniform system of elections codified by a constitutional amendment that would (1) demand voter ID for all elections (2) would imprison both unqualified voters (illegal aliens, felons, and others deemed incapable of voting), (3) would end same-day voting and early voting but would expand Election Day voting hours as well as provide absentee voting for those with a need to do so.  We also believe that U.S. military across the world should be able to vote a month in advance of Election Day and that their ballots would be transferred via military custody to a national military election site in Washington, D.C., where they would then be broken down into their states, counties, and cities.  Uniformity is important so long as it is to guarantee that ALL Lawful ballots are counted and unlawful ones not.  Also, if there are any crimes like we witnessed last election cycle such as GOP observers being booted, cardboard thrown up in windows, recounting of ballots, and trucking in pristine ballots printed elsewhere, people should face 25 years in a federal prison without the hope of early release.  Dead people must not vote, illegal aliens must not vote, criminals must not vote, and electronic machines and software programs should be booted in place of paper ballots with a paper trail.  You see, Democrats CANNOT win most honest elections which is why they are always trying to thieve elections any way they can.  We posit that DEEP BLUE STATES and CITIES most likely are a deep, deep RED.

  52. 2007 Tuesday: The U.S. government authorizes nearly $60 million for the Palestinian Authority.  How about this: how about NOT giving them the money?  They use it to commit terrorist attacks on Israel, not for the betterment of their people.  Elsewhere, all hell is breaking out in Baghdad.  The U.S. and Iraqi forces are fighting terrorists and scumbags and are planning to construct a wall around the Sunni neighborhoods in the capital city seeing as how much of the terrorism is coming from the Shia majority.
  53. 2008 Thursday: In Kandahar, Afghanistan, a NATO convoy patrolling the area encounters suicide bombers driving a truck.  The resulting explosion kills at least 8 civilians on the road.
  54. 2009 Friday: Today is a bad day for tornadoes in the Deep South: at least 27 roar through several states claiming the lives of several people and leaving trails of devastation.  Global Warming?  Sure.  Definitely.  Good to get ahead of the leftists.
  55. 2010 Saturday: Bronislaw Komorowski becomes acting president of Poland after a plane carrying top Polish officials and President Lech Kaczynski crashes, leaving no survivors.  The aircraft crashed near Smolensk, Russia, and many people believe because he was an ardent critic of Russia that Putin may have had something to do with it.  Elsewhere, for the first time in 10 years, the Shroud of Turin goes on display.
  56. 2011 Sunday: Following a show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the band U 2’s[v] tour, 360 degrees, becomes the highest grossing music tour of all time.  Elsewhere, the People’s Republic of China reports its first trade deficit in six years blaming the rising costs of commodities.
  57. 2012 Tuesday: The American company Apple, Inc. announces it is worth over $600 billion dollars, making the technology company the largest in the world by market capitalization.  Meanwhile, in the GOP presidential primary race, Senator Rick Santorum suspends his candidacy on this date which leaves Gov. Mitt Romney the overwhelming favorite to win the nomination to contest Barack Hussein Obama for the White House.
  58. 2013 Wednesday: The United States, Jordan, and Canada boycott a meeting of the U.N. General Assembly organized by former Serbian foreign minister, Vuk Jeremic.  Meanwhile, tensions on the Korean Peninsula continue to rise as South Korea and the United States raise threat levels and the People’s Republic of China and North Korea clamp down on border crossings.  This is back when the PRC was sort of working with regional countries and the U.S. to contend with North Korea’s nuclear ambitions.
  59. 2014 Thursday: The head of Tesla Motors, Elon Musk, announces that his company will begin selling its luxury electric cars in China later this month.  Meanwhile, around Aleppo, Syria, home of ISIS, 88 people die and scores of others are injured when the Syrian air force drops a series of barrel bombs on the city.  This of course drives liberals loony tunes as they think the use of barrel bombs is somehow a horrible thing.  Look, killing people is a horrible thing, what difference does it make if barrel bombs do the killing or President Barack Hussein Obama indiscriminately drones people all over the world sans any type of trial?
  60. 2015 Friday: As ISIS continues spreading terror throughout the Middle East, jihadists in Baghdad carry out a suicide bombing killing several people and wounding loads of others.  It appears that President Barack Obama has no ideas as how to combat this evil scourge of jihad evil.  We say, “Neutron bomb.  Painless.  Simple.  Quick.  Cheap.”
  61. 2016 Sunday: Three bigwigs of the pro-Democracy movement in Hong Kong- Agnes Chow, Nathan Law, and Joseph Wong form a new political movement to fight for the freedom of their fellow Hong Kongese from communist China.  Meanwhile, as the international committee led by U.S. Secretary of State John F. (Flipping) Kerry tries to coerce Iran into making the ‘deal only if they agree to discuss their missile programs,’ Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif says ‘any discussion of his nation’s missile systems will NOT happen.’
  62. 2017 Monday: The 113th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch, nominated by President Donald J. Trump, takes his place on the court on this date.  The swearing in ceremony took place at the White House.  Associate Justice would take the place of Associate Justice Antonin Scalia who died last year.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms detain a political activist from Taiwan, Lee Ming-che, claiming he endangered Chi-Com national security along with his wife.  
  63. 2018 Tuesday: So-called “Boy Wonder,” Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, begins testifying before the U.S. Congress regarding data harvesting, lack of privacy for the social media giant’s users, and misuse of said data.   Elsewhere, the Israeli government announces the findings of its investigation into the death of a jihadist on the other side of the Gaza border fence.  A sniper put the thug down- someone identified as a Hamas terrorist- with one shot which is ruled a ‘clean kill.’  However, the soldiers who filmed the incident and then celebrated it are told not to behave like that.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: On this date, one of the most amazing photos to come out of the Event Horizon Telescope depicts a BLACK HOLE in 2017 in galaxy M87, approximately 6.5 billion times the mass of Earth and about 55 million light years distant.  Absolutely amazing!  Elsewhere, anyone on Medicare in the United States has had salespeople calling them up, telling them they are ‘eligible for back braces for their pain.’  All one must do is to give their information to these scoundrels.  Well, the federal government charges 24 scumbags for Medicare fraud, not a good thing, because these people were pushing back braces to many who did not need them and billing the feds for $1.2 billion for not only the back braces but other durable equipment medical devices.   Finally, the 6th U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen left office on this date.  She served under President Donald J. Trump from December 06, 2017, until today.
  65. 2020 Friday: China’s grand gift to the rest of the world, the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis continues claiming lives and ruining economies.  Currently, we have 1,699,632 confirmed cases of this hellacious disease what with 102,734 confirmed deaths and 376,330 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 502,876 confirmed cases what with 18,747 confirmed deaths and another 27,314 confirmed recoveries.   Around the world, pain, suffering, and death continue and it’s all because of two guilty culprits: communist China and the World Health Organization that continues to carry water for the communist nation.  President Trump informed the world today that the United States puts $500 million into the coffers of the corrupt organization every year while the People’s Republic of China puts in a measly $40-50 million per year yet the W.H.O. continues doing Beijing’s bidding.  This will have to change and the only way it will is when the United States returns to the Two-China Policy and recognizes Taiwan as a full member state of the U.N. and gives them back their seat on the Security Council.
  66. 2021 Saturday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– Joe Biden says he is going to maintain the current level of funding for the U.S. military, he is going to funnel it through Pine Island Acquisitions Corporation which is a major lobbying tailor-made for doing Deep State business with the federal government supplying its military needs (and most likely, to re-route money back around to liberal Democrats- the classic money-go-round.  However, what exactly the military is going to do other than to root out conservatism in the ranks is unclear because his Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki declared ‘the Biden administration WON’T confront communist China.’  Why would they?  The Chi-Coms fund the entire Biden clan.   Finally, Joe Biden is going to convene a ‘chip summit’ so we can find a way to eradicate our chip shortage.  Whoa, Joe.
  67. 2021 Saturday A: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Congressman Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, says that Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the border crisis.  He labels it a horrible ‘humanitarian crisis.’   Meanwhile, as this self-inflicted crisis continues, the Biden administration is going to continue housing illegal aliens at hotels in border cities (and elsewhere across the country).  (Note- Chefs Lilah and Itzi says that flights bringing illegals into Honolulu is indeed happening although they are doing their best to keep it quiet.  They say it’s the same as when President Obama was in office and states were giving their homeless populations one-way tickets to the islands.  NOT good).  
  68. 2021 Saturday B: JUDICIAL SYSTEM NEWS– following U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer saying yesterday that ‘packing the court is not the way to go,’ tens of thousands of raving lunatic leftists are out in the streets demanding that Justice Breyer step down now.  This is what you get when you coddle at least two generations by not giving them the belt across their asses when they cause problems as kids- you get a bunch of whiny, sniveling young people who behave like spoiled brats.  You know what Ichabod Crane said in “The Headless Horseman”- ‘spare the rod and spoil the child.’  Folks, instead of these worthless c***suckers canceling us, how about we cancel the living Bejeezus out of them?  It’s US or THEM.  Keep your seat, Justice Breyer, we may not agree with you on much, but this is flipping crazy.  In other court news, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom’s Gestapo-like order preventing home Bible study during the pandemic.  When can we recall this POS?  (Note- Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the libs on the court.  What a mistake he was).  In other news, famed legal scholar and professor Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax TV that the Dems are indeed doing their best to ‘stack the court.’
  69. 2021 Saturday C: 2020 ELECTION FRAUD, CORRUPTION, THEFT, AND FOREIGN INTERFERENCE NEWS– Governor Christopher T. Sununu, R-N.H., says he will sign an order to look into the voting machines used in the last election.  Word has it they flipped a lot of GOP votes to Democrats.  Is it not amazing how this just seemed to happen across the country?  And they claim there was NO election interference.   Elsewhere, after being ordered to remove the dead voters from the state’s voter rolls due to a court order, Pennsylvania announces they are going to clean up their voter rolls.  Isn’t this amazing, too, how when courts intervene on behalf of the voters, things start getting cleaned up?  NO wonder they still have “Fort Pelosi” up in Washington, D.C.   (Note- although the ‘un-elected governor of Georgia- Stacey Abrams once supported similar laws to what Georgia now has, she no longer does.  Too bad).
  70. 2021 Saturday D: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– Iranian leadership was all excited today touring a new centrifuge facility that will enrich uranium 50-times faster than they currently are.  Moreover, the good thing about it, it’s all for ‘peaceful purposes’ or so these lying scumbags claim.  Seems about time for another worm infecting their centrifuges to occur.  We know Joe Biden won’t do it so it’s up to the Israelis.  Next, the Chi-Coms have hit Alibaba with a $2.8 billion antitrust suit.  How does this work in a ‘communist country?’  It’s nice they pretend like they have laws when in fact, there is BUT ONE LAW- whatever dictator Xi Jinping says.
  71. 2021 Saturday E: RINO REPUBLICAN NEWS– It would appear that Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell has some residual guilt left from sticking the dagger in President Donald J. Trump’s neck by voting NOT to convict #45 in his second impeachment trial and then saying that ‘Trump was responsible for the False Flag Operation the Dems and their storm-troopers ran on January 06, 2021.’  Senator McConnell says that Joe Biden is ‘caving to the left on packing the U.S. Supreme Court and ending the filibuster.’  His good friend, Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, echoes his boss by ripping the Dems on their scheme to ‘pack the court’ and to ‘end the filibuster.’  (Note- these guys are hoping we will forget their RINO politics and their traitorous behavior towards a president who did what neither of them have ever been able to accomplish: #45 kept his word).   In REAL Republican news, Jason Miller says that ‘Donald Trump is still the head of the GOP no matter how much the RINO scum wants him NOT to be).

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 562,858 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 198,903 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 445 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm returned to action following a bout with cancer and reformed his band.  The subsequent release is “The Midnight Ramble Sessions, Volume II” (August 16, 2006).  Joining the drummer/vocalist, were Little Sammy Davis (vocals/harmonica), Larry Campbell  (guitars), Dr. John (pianos), Michael Merritt (bass), and several others.  Davis is the vocalist and front man for the group seeing as how Helm was recovering from throat cancer which is amazing because the band roars through a set of blues tunes that leave one’s head ablaze and ears a-smoking.  Levon manages to do some vocals which is good.  We hope that you will investigate this one to your heart’s content and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and enjoy.  It’s amazing, of that we guarantee.

  58. 2015 Tuesday: Amazon.com joins the bandwagon against the Confederate flag following the shooting committed by Dylann Storm Roof the previous week.  Although many Americans see, the flag as part of the nation’s history—from the Civil War—many among the American people see it as a symbol of racism and want it removed.  Elsewhere, NASA’s Mars Odyssey completed its 60,000th orbit around the Red Planet.  The spacecraft entered orbit around the fourth planet from the Sun on October 23, 2001.
  59. 2016 Thursday: On this date, the people of Great Britain flock to the polls to vote in the Brexit Referendum.  The majority of Brits vote to leave the corrupt European Union which sets in motion near-constant problems among younger Brits who don’t want to go and with the EU who wants them to stay no matter what.

  62. 2019 Sunday: Upset Czechs, numbering around 250,000 take to the streets- not for a Black Lives Matter protest but because they are angry at the nation’s Prime Minister Andrej Babis.  The protest occurs in Letna Plain Park and is the biggest public protest since the days when the communists ruled the country.  Elsewhere, U.S. Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick M. Shanahan stepped down from his position on this date.  A member of NO political party, he served under President Donald J. Trump from January 01,2019 until today.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: The FBI announces that the rope- not calling it a NOOSE- found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage has been there since last October.  Since the garage assignments were only made recently, they cast doubt on the ‘act’ being deliberate.  We will keep the readership posted.  UPDATE ON PREVIOUS STORY: HATE CRIME HOAX.  Next, the European Union says it ‘may ban Americans from visiting Europe’ over COVID-19 concerns.  Okay.  Finally, President Trump visits the southern border to celebrate more than 200 miles of new border wall going up and the fact that numbers of illegal aliens attempting to cross is down by 86-percent.  At a Students for Trump rally in Arizona, it is clear the president has loads of support.
  64. 2020 Tuesday A: The Kung Flu, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka all manner of other names, continues causing problems.  Here are today’s stats for the globe: 9,154,232 confirmed cases, 473,650 confirmed deaths, and 4,585,022 confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 2,373,274 confirmed cases, 122,654 confirmed deaths, and 735,365 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which the world famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM- has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, Golden State first: 183,073 confirmed cases, 5,580 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom won’t release the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on him!  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 816 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 669 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor David Ige for refusing to play Blue State politics.  Finally, in left-wing moron Governor Jay Inslee’s Evergreen State, here are the stats: 29,350 confirmed cases, 1,284 confirmed deaths, but NO reported confirmed recoveries.  The lack of information about recoveries tells one all they need to know.
  65. 2020 Tuesday B: Here are today’s Stock Market close: the DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,156.10, UP 131.14 points (0.50%); next, for the NASDAQ: 10,131.37, UP 74.89 points (0.74%); and the S&P 500: 3,131.29, UP 13.43 points (0.43%).
  66. 2021 Wednesday: How soon before the new American ‘Gestapo’ shows up in the middle of the night, flashing their Nacht und Nebel badges to signify we no longer have any rights and can be arrested in the dead of darkness?  Remember: there are more than 75 million of us and it’s going to take them several years before they can accomplish the Replacement Theory.   Stick around to uncover the events of the day along with the rest of us…

  63. 2020 Tuesday: The FBI announces that the rope- not calling it a NOOSE- found in NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace’s garage has been there since last October.  Since the garage assignments were only made recently, they cast doubt on the ‘act’ being deliberate.  We will keep the readership posted.  UPDATE on previous story: HATE CRIME HOAX.  Next, the European Union says it ‘may ban Americans from visiting Europe’ over COVID-19 concerns.  Okay.  Finally, President Trump visits the southern border to celebrate more than 200 miles of new border wall going up and the fact that numbers of illegal aliens attempting to cross is down by 86-percent.  At a Students for Trump rally in Arizona, it is clear the president has loads of support.
