  59. 2020 Saturday:  Already tensions are growing as to whom will replace Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the U.S. Supreme Court.  This is what most of the AICPENDBLOG.COM believe: after what the Democrats and the RINOS have put you through what with the false claims of Russian collusion, impeachment, and roadblocks at every turn, nominate the replacement on Monday and go for it.  As for quavering GOP senators, do you want to go down as a FIGHTER and lose your seat or as a COLLABORATIONIST and perhaps lose your seat anyway?  States with messed-up elections systems such as California and Maine must contest these bogus systems at the Supreme Court and the only way we can win is with a strong conservative on the court.  Republicans, do your duty as you know the Democrats would not waver in doing theirs and in fact would hasten it as quickly as possible.   President Trump is down in North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is at home in his basement spanking the wank.  Elsewhere, a shooting at a party with 100 revelers or more in Buffalo, New York claims the life of one partygoer and injures four others.   Speaking of SCOTUS, Fox News Channel reports (erroneously, in our view) that voters trust “Pro-China Joe” Biden on picking Supreme Court nominees by a whopping 52 percent to 45 percent for Donald Trump.  Yup, sure they do…sure they do…

  73. 2022 Monday: Observation of the Day- Well, well, well, so little Lindsey Graham- last week- released his new bill to national opprobrium that would restrict abortions to 15 weeks- across the entire country. Look, I am Pro-Life, but I suspect that what Senator Graham is doing is the same as what we allege Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did and that is to toss the Democrats AND Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell.  We contend at the AICPENDBLOG.COM that Roberts is the one behind the now infamous leak of the opinion that sent abortion back to the fifty states.  We allege Roberts did this (haven’t found the leaker yet, have they?) so as to mobilize all the Pro-Death maggots to take to the streets and cause trouble.  Similarly, Senator Graham did this so as to prevent a GOP takeover of the Senate so his good friend and boss, the Turtle, could keep his leadership position as minority leader.  While we believe the GOP is going to overwhelm the Senate in November, the question is this: will the new Republican senators possess the big balls to vote the Turtle out of the leadership?  Look, we need to win both Houses and BOTH McConnell and that POS Kevin McCarthy must lose their seats.  Otherwise, it’s the same old shit.  Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick returned to form with their next studio release, “One on One” which came out on April 30, 1982.  The lineup was different what with the departure of Tom Petersson in 1980 featuring a refurbished lineup of Robin Zander (guitars, backing vocals, bass, and keyboards), Robin Zander (rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and new bassist/backing vocalist Jon Brant.  The album was somewhat a blast from the past returning the band to its earlier form, hard-rocking pop musicians.  “If You Want My Love” is the big hit on this album as well as “She’s Tight.”  We love this band, we love this album, and we encourage everyone to seek it out at your favorite site for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.

  69. 2020 Friday:  Today’s attempt to bring down President Donald J. 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.

Trump which will benefit both nations.  In so doing, Kosovo- a largely Muslim country- agrees to recognize Israel and Serbia says it will move its embassy to Jerusalem.  Fantastic!   Speaking of Trump, his approval ratings have climbed back to 52-percent, what they were before the Yellow Flu hit the U.S. Elsewhere, Hilton Hotels says it is going to close its mega-hotel in New York’s Times Square permanently.  The state and city continue losing businesses thanks to the mismanagement of Governor Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill Di Blasio. 
  72. 2020 Friday C: As economic news continues being positive for August, we learn that 1.37 million new jobs were created and that the jobless rate fell to 8.4-percent.  Democrats continue whining and screeching that Trump is destroying the economy while “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues expanding on his theme he mentioned yesterday: ‘I can’t tell you my tax plan because “they’ll shoot me.”  Your tax plan’s that bad Joe?  Maybe you shouldn’t win in November!  Elsewhere, as of publication time, stocks continue falling after dropping 807 points on Thursday.
  73. 2020 Friday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 26,398,466 confirmed cases, +323,857, 870,477, confirmed deaths, +6,324, and 17,565,712 confirmed recoveries, +228,328.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,283,209 confirmed cases, up 63,148 from yesterday’s reporting, 190,058 confirmed deaths, UP 1,204, and 3,373,378 confirmed recoveries, UP 84,857. 
  74. 2020 Friday E: COVID-19 Statistics 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: 727,072 confirmed cases, 13,497 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 9,202 confirmed cases, 79 confirmed deaths, and 2,778 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 79,121 confirmed cases, 2,034 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Oklahoma- currently, they have 62,040 confirmed cases, 846 confirmed deaths, and 5,213 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Kevin Stitt for your state’s honesty in this regard.
  75. 2020 Friday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 28,133.31, DOWN 159.42 points (-0.56%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,313.13, DOWN 114.97 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,426.96, DOWN 28.10 points (-0.81%).  Price of GOLD: $1,940.90 per troy oz., +6.60 (+0.34%).  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.12 per troy oz., +0.403 (+1.51%).  Price of PLATINUM: $906.90 per troy oz., +8.70 (+0.97%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,304.00 per troy oz., +3.00 (+0.13%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.07 per #, +0.0125 (+0.41%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.51, -0.26 (-0.65%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.84 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  76. 2020 Friday G: Oregon Governor Kate Brown- when asked WHY she won’t send the Oregon National Guard into Portland, Oregon, to stop what will be soon 100 nights of unrest, she told a reporter that the ‘Guard is not trained in law-enforcement matters.’  In other words, rioters, and looters, continue doing what you are doing because NO one is going to stop you from running amok.  Elsewhere, we learn that the explosion in Beirut, Lebanon’s port cost the city $3.2 billion, left 300,000 people homeless and claimed the lives of 191.  Although it’s not clear as to what set off the ammonium nitrate or why it had been stored in warehouses lining the port for what is said to be ‘years,’ we suspect that Hezbollah and its leader Hassan Nasrallah were keeping it there for use in attacks on neighboring Israel.  It is time a drone takes out Mr. Nasrallah as he is the next ranking terrorist in the world after Abu Bakr al-Baghdad and Gen. Qassim Soleimani.  Light ‘em up!

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 347,140 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 56,938 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Guam: $4.037.  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- Serbia: $6.097 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,723,110,084,117 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 United Arab Emirates, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  83. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Even though it’s Saturday, the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris remains committed to the job of patrolling the U.S.-Mexico border.  Today is Day No. 164 for her to be in this prestigious post and Day No. 71 since her one and only visit to the border actually to do her job.  We commend her for her diligence.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien devastation occurring along our southern border as reported by One America News.  First, here is the appalling cost for just this day of caring for the refuse of the Third World: $561,123,904.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the invaders for the entire year so far: $270,150,238,208.  Next, here is the number of estimated illegals who have swarmed across the southern border this year: 2,768,823.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals living freely in the United States as we speak: 36,768,824.  Folks, this is neither sustainable nor humane.  We must round these people up and send them back to whence the f**k they came. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  84. 2021 Saturday G: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Well, we knew this would happen.  The WOKIES are up in arms over the new anti-abortion bill in the Lone Star State.  Uber, Lyft, and American Airlines are targeting Texas.  For Christ’s Holy Sake, corporations, can you just go about your business instead of jumping aboard the WOKE train?  You are driving more and more Americans away from you.  We most certainly will no longer use your services.   Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says the ‘Constitution says NOTHING about states enacting abortion bans.’
  85. 2021 Saturday H: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3592 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 09, 11, 23, 30, 43, and Mega 05.  Out of 105,231 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO mega for a prize of $35,459.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Rosemead, CA 91770.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #880 with a jackpot of $367 million up for grabs: 32, 35, 40, 52, 54, and Power 01.  Out of 109,171 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $62,496.
  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.

226. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 14, 2022

Friends, it was akin to a lightbulb exploding above my head: the Democrats are NOT bringing millions of illegal alien military-aged males into the United States to affect the vote (maybe in years to come) but to rise up in January 2025 and to then launch an insurrection across our country. The Dems- I used to be one until I AWOKE- KNOW that President Donald J. Trump is going to return to office along with a continuing tidal wave of Republicans…

AND KEEP HER THAT WAY!

  54. 2017 Monday: Under pressure from right and left, President Donald J. Trump- once againcondemned white supremist groups by names, declaring them to be “repugnant to everything that we hold dear as Americans.”  The CEO of Merck, the nation’s third-largest pharmaceutical company, resigned from a federal advisory council, citing Trump’s failure to explicitly condemn white nationalists who marched in Charlottesville, Va.  Kenneth Frazier was one of the few African Americans (does it matter what flipping color a CEO is?) to head a Fortune 500 company.  In addition to this prick abandoning the president under false pretenses and fake news, so, too, did the CEOs of Intel and Under Armor who also resigned from the American Manufacturing Council later in the day.  What a bunch of fricking pussies.  
  55. 2018 Tuesday: According to the United Nations, things have been so bad in the South American Marxist state of Venezuela that more than 2.3 million people have fled the crap-hole country.  While it is great that someone has reported this, when is the United Nations going to do what the victors of World War II created it to do, to topple failed nation states and liberate people?  WTF!  Elsewhere, in Genoa, Italy, the Morandi Bridge collapses which causes the deaths of at least forty-three people as thirty or so cars traversing it plunge into the Polcevera Valley which includes a river, a railway terminal, and other physical landmarks.  The disaster also causes six hundred people to become homeless.  At least when Benito Mussolini ran Italy, the trains ran on time and the bridges did not collapse- unless they were under a rain of Allied bombs.  C’est la vie!
  56. 2019 Wednesday: In Stockholm, Sweden, American rapper ASAP Rocky receives a suspended sentence for being found guilty of assault on a Swedish citizen.  Meanwhile, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan blasts the government of India for having placed the Indian-controlled region of Kashmir under lockdown following violence caused by…you guessed it…Pakistani Muslims.
  57. 2020 Friday:  California Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-CA 18th Assembly District, proposes a NEW taxation law on the state’s ultra-wealthy that ‘will raise $7.5 billion for the state’s general fund, will drive the top tax rate from 13.5% to 16.8%.  Supposedly, it would affect only those with wealth over $30 million and if the wealthy leave the state and take their money with them, they will STILL have to pay taxes to California on their money for up to 10 years.  Assemblyman Bonta swears it will affect only 30,400 California residents but once those people move out of the state before the law- if passed and takes effect- and take their money with them, who will the new taxation rate hit next?   Vote this POS out of office in November.  Meanwhile, former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith who worked with James Comey and others in the coup to remove Donald Trump from office becomes the first member of the far-leftist cabal to plead guilty in federal court for having lied and for falsifying evidence.  He altered emails saying Carter Page was NOT a CIA source when he WAS a CIA source every time, he gave speeches in Russia.  Let us hope Mr. Clinesmith becomes the first of many facing prison time.  He is another POS.  
  58. 2020 Friday A: President Trump says he is prepared to cut stimulus checks to American families of up to $3,400 per family of four if ONLY the Democrats would come to the table and help him.  Meanwhile, polling shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his VP nominee Kamala Harris leading the Trump-Pence team by 8 to 10 points depending upon where one looks.  Speaking of “Pro-China (or Groping) Joe” Biden, he says ‘Trump has done nothing to staunch the spread of the Chinese Virus, that he would order U.S. industry to produce more PPE gear and would require ALL Americans to wear masks for the next three months whether within or without their homes. 
  59. 2020 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Virus Statistics for the globe: 21,036,943 confirmed cases, UP by 412,627 cases, 761,926 confirmed deaths, UP by 12,505 deaths, and 13,048,978 confirmed recoveries, UP by 217,174 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,353,608 confirmed cases, UP by 29,006 new cases, 169,634 confirmed deaths, UP by 704 new deaths, and 2,698,129 confirmed recoveries, UP by 18,435 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  60. 2020 Friday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 601,075 confirmed cases, UP 7,934 cases, 10,996 confirmed deaths, UP by 188, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 4,312 confirmed cases, UP by 0(according to yesterday) forty confirmed deaths, UP by zero, and 1,716 confirmed recoveries, UP by 0- NO NEW NUMBERS.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 65,339 confirmed cases, UP by 833, 1,653 confirmed deaths, UP by twenty-nine, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  THE NUMBERS REMAIN THE SAME FOR WASHINGTON, TOO, NO REPORTING OF NEW NUMBERS.
  61. 2020 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,931.02, UP 34.30 points (+0.12%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,019.30, DOWN 23.20 points (-0.21%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,372.85, DOWN 0.58 points (-0.017%).  Price of GOLD: $1,953.70 per troy oz., +3.90 (+0.20%) Here is the price of SILVER: $26.54 per troy oz., +0.456 (+1.75%).  Price of PLATINUM: $960.80 per troy oz., +1.70 (+0.18%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.86 per #, +0.0045 (+0.16%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $42.23, +0.22 (+0.52%).  Today, one dollar U.S. = 6.95 PRC yuan while one dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  62. 2020 Friday E: The U.S. Department of Defense announces it is going to establish a task force to investigate the numerous UFO sightings that have been ongoing around the world.  Although investigators have studied the phenomena before- aka Project Blue Book with dubious answers- it seems much more important now as hundreds of millions of people around the world have seen unidentified aerial vehicles as well as unidentified submerged vehicles.  It is extremely important that the American people and the world understand if we are in danger from these otherworldly vehicles.  Go for it!   Speaking of UFO [viii], bassist Pete Way of the British rock band died at age 69 from complications from an accident.
  63. 2020 Friday F: A federal appeals court rules that California’s restrictions on large-capacity magazines are unconstitutional which is amazing as all of us who own firearms never handed them over anyway and if anything went out and bought more of them so we would have them on hand when or if that drooling moron Beto O’Rourke comes calling for them.  Watch out, boy!  Elsewhere, Hezbollah thug leader Hassan Nasrallah suggests that Lebanon and ONLY Lebanon should investigate the massive blast that devastated Beirut on August 04 which is silly as everyone believes the Hezbollah morons are the ones who blew the city’s port up when mountains of ammonium nitrate exploded, killing more than 180 people, vaporizing numerous others, and wounding nearly 4,000 people.  If anything, the Lebanese people should string this murderous POS up as he is now trying to blame Israel for his and his followers’ stupidity.  Meanwhile, Iran- another culprit in this mishap- says it will restore Beirut’s power free of charge.  Allowing them to do it is akin to the chickens inviting the wolf into the hen house.
  64. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 207,523,242 confirmed cases, +566,314, 4,367,066 confirmed deaths, +8,828 and 186,015,838 confirmed recoveries, +440,328.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 37,435,835 confirmed cases, UP 71,135 from yesterday’s reporting, 637,439 confirmed deaths, UP 278, [ix] and 30,144,609 confirmed recoveries, UP 14,517.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 318,682 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 85,396 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  66. 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: 4,124,808 confirmed cases, 64,644 confirmed deaths, and 2,188,791 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,925,074 confirmed cases, 40,584 confirmed deaths, and 2,312,488 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 50,355 confirmed cases, 548 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 508,842 confirmed cases, 6,289 confirmed deaths, and 238,596 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Nevada: they have 371,126 confirmed cases, 6,160 confirmed deaths, and 325,218 confirmed recoveries. [xi]    
  67. 2021 Saturday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day- now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 934,896 confirmed cases, 6,622 confirmed deaths, and 879,873 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- San Marino, 179th country on the list: 5,194 cases of the virus, 90 confirmed deaths and 5,029 confirmed recoveries.

[xvi]        
  69. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.404 per gallon, $3.015 in Florida, $4.090 in Hawaii, and $3.893 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other location- New Hampshire: $3.005.  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- Albania: $5.314 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,641,726,427,507 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 Switzerland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Belgium with $253 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  70. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Trumpets please- today is Day No. 144 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 50 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Not being critical, just pointing it out for the readers.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that ‘Kooky Kamala’ has ‘done nothing to address the border crisis in weeks.’  Although ‘Kooky’ is not doing her job, California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner visited the southern border.  
  71. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the updated figures for the illegal alien invasion along the southern border.  First, here is the cost of caring for this riffraff for just this day: 693,442,560.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the invaders at this point in the year: $247,268,851,712.  Can you imagine all this money being spent to bring about one-world government run by the likes of communist countries?  Horrifying.  Third, here are the numbers of illegals who have poured across the border just this year: 2,534,307.  Fourth and final, here is the LOW ESTIMATE for the illegals hiding in the country: 36,534,307.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  (Note- if you have been reading our work for any time now, you know that back when we created the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day in 2009, we said THEN the numbers of illegals in the country stood at 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Not good).
  72. 2021 Saturday H: Illegal Aliens-Invaders-and-‘Refugees’ News– Here are some more stats for the border crisis regarding numbers for the year 2021 so far.  First, 888,454 single adults have crossed the border, most of them young males of military age (see the original “Red Dawn” movie starring Patrick Swayze (1984), not the PC 2012 remake if you want to know what damage a tidal wave of illegal aliens could do).  Next, here is the number for family units who have crossed the southern border this year: 328,121.  Moving on, here are the numbers for unaccompanied children and single minors who have crossed in 2021: 113,791.  Here are the numbers for unaccompanied minors for the past four Julys: 2018: 4,406.  2019: 5,846.  2020: 2,509.  2021: 18,962.  Finally, a federal judge has ordered the Biden regime to revive- immediately- President Donald J. Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico policy’ for all illegal aliens.    
  73. 2021 Saturday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– As the Biden regime continues trying to rush American troops BACK into Afghanistan so we can pull them out yet again, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is blasting the Antitrump for the hurried evacuation of Afghanistan, leaving it in the mess that it is, and now for going back into the maelstrom.  The United Kingdom is pulling out its embassy staff as we speak.  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district says that Joe Biden’s bumbling is going to lead to a ‘resurgence of al-Qaida.’ Speaking of the war in Afghanistan, here are some stats.  Cost of the war: 2.26 trillion dollars.  Next, cost in U.S. lives: 2,442 and 20,666 wounded.  Afghan dead at or around 241,000 and wounded at or around 1,271,000.  As Taliban forces continue investing around the perimeter of Kabul, the Afghan president is appealing to the global community for help.
  74. 2021 Saturday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Newsmax reported today that following the highly unwise 60th birthday bash for the 44th president at his multimillion-dollar mansion on Martha’s Vineyard last week, the island is seeing a huge spike in Wuhan Virus cases.  Wow.  Barack Hussein Obama is a super-spreader.
  75. 2021 Saturday K: Health and Medical Alerts– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has announced the creation of a rapid response team to expand monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19 for all Floridians.  Elsewhere, first responders in Hawaii are suing the state over its onerous vaccine policies for all first responders and medical personnel.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Democrats are floating yet another ‘stick’ in the war to get everyone to undergo the ‘jab’ so they can rake in the big bucks: unvaccinated employees are going to have to pay more for their health insurance, yet another tax slapped on the American people.  Here is another one: in California, they are saying that smoke from the wildfires is going to drive up cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as well as deaths.  What will they think of next?
  76. 2021 Saturday L: Joe Biden News I– Everyone should remember that while the Antitrump was campaigning for president, he promised the world that his administration would be the most transparent in the history of the presidency.  Some members of the Fake News Media are asking ‘WHY’ they cannot see the visitor logs for Joe Biden’s home in Delaware?  He goes there frequently to get his ‘Manchurian Candidate-like mental tune-ups’ so reporters want to know who is visiting him there.  Chi-Coms?  We do not know.  Russians?  Possibly.  Ukrainians?  Highly possible yet flipping Joe Biden will not release the visitor logs and this is the most transparent administration in the history of presidential politics.
  77. 2021 Saturday M: Political News I– Disheveled, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, has extended the proxy voting to October 2021.  Next, a bipartisan group of U.S. senators is asking U.S. Treasury to investigate JBS- the meat-packing conglomerate- for corruption and criminal practices.  Next, a federal judge tosses the lawsuit against FOX News Channel that disgraced POS attorney Michael Avenatti launched against them.
  78. 2021 Saturday N: Political News II– In other political news of the day, former Republican governor of New York George Pataki says that ‘New York is corrupted by arrogance of power.’  In other news, famed legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘IF Attorney General Leticia James runs for governor, she is going to face loads of ethics woes.’
  79. 2021 Saturday O: Business News– Dodge is recalling 263,000 Ram trucks because of airbag problems.  The auto maker will fix the problems at no charge to the customers.
  80. 2021 Saturday P: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After trashing the entertainer’s life, attorneys for Bill Cosby announce that they plan on FULLY VINDICATING him via a civil lawsuit.
  81. 2021 Saturday Q: California State News– Sacramento says that Pacific Gas & Electric- PG&E- will NOT face charges for the Woolsey Fire of 2018.  The entity who should face charges for all California wildfires is the Democrat-run state government.  They abrogate their duty at maintaining the forests properly just as they fail to maintain and/or create new water infrastructure.  Every wildfire in the state rests solely upon the shoulders of the California Democratic Party.  Speaking of wildfires, the largest wildfire in the history of the state- the Dixie Fire- continues to rage across northern California.  God, please send some rain!  In other Golden State news, gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder says that IF he wins election, he is going to repeal all mask and vaccine mandates before breakfast.  Fellow gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner says that IF she wins the governor’s mansion, she will use state money to complete the California portion of the border wall.
  82. 2021 Saturday R: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3586 what with a $8 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner. Here are the numbers: 02, 13, 17, 19, 21, and Mega 12.  Out of 97,445 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $32,171.  The winning ticket was sold at ARCO AM/PM in Cathedral City, CA 92234. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #872 with a jackpot of $258 million up for grabs: 06, 21, 49, 65, 67, and Powerball 18.  Out of 97,651 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $53,536.
  83. 2021 Saturday S: The Wrap-Up– Here are the stock prices for the BIG FOUR PHARMA companies cranking out vaccines for Uncle Sam: (1) Pfizer: $48.48.  (2) Johnson & Johnson: $176.25.  (3) BioNTech: $377.32.  (4) Moderna: $389.78.  To achieve Zen in understanding WHY global leaders are pushing vaccines on their people, follow the money.  Every country partnering with a vaccine manufacturer means the country’s leaders invest heavily in the stock of said companies.  Just like companies producing weapons, politicians invest heavily in those companies, too, as the market for their products NEVER disappears. [xx]  The wonderful thing about vaccines, is that they can try to force them on everyone which means more money in their pockets.  What a flipping swindle, and the world needs to wake up to the danger facing it when the ‘sophisticate folks’- like those at Barack’s birthday party- think they can guide us into being subservient slaves.  (Note- you can take it a step further- did the various world leaders conspire with the Chi-Coms to release the virus so that they could amass heretofore unseen amounts of wealth while crushing problems in each country?  The Chi-Coms and the Dems were able to get Donald Trump out of the White House.  The Chi-Coms were able to crush the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong.  Britain has been able to secure more power as has Canada, France, Australia, look at what these people are doing.  Let us listen to Rand Paul: they cannot arrest all of us which means the people of the world must demonstrate to their leaders that they are not going to lie down and take it.  Let us get Donald Trump back in the White House.  NOW.  (Beware the military-industrial-pharmaceutical-political complex).
  84. 2022 Sunday: Friends, it was akin to a lightbulb exploding above my head: the Democrats are NOT bringing millions of illegal alien military-aged males into the United States to affect the vote (maybe in years to come) but to rise up in January 2025 and to then launch an insurrection across our country.  The Dems- I used to be one until I AWOKE- KNOW that President Donald J. Trump is going to return to office along with a continuing tidal wave of Republicans and to cause him as much havoc as they can by setting our nation ablaze.  Think about it: remember when all those ‘spontaneous marches and demonstrations’ began following the election of 2016?  Everyone thought at the time- me included- that they were a ‘grassroots response’ to golden girl, Hillary Rodham Clinton going down in flames.  Watching our country burst asunder in the summer of 2020 over a few minor police interactions with minorities and how the left just showed up with everything ready to go and burned down half of the country was the eye-opening event.  The Dems will DESTROY our nation any way they can because they hate it when people rise up and throw them out of office just as the Deep State despises losing its slimy grip on power.  Friends, this is EVIL which is why I encourage everyone to go to gun shows across the nation and to buy firearms and ammo for the dark days to come.  We are going to send these illegal aliens packing back across the border where hopefully, they will topple the corrupt government down there.  It couldn’t happen to more deserving people.  The Democratic Party is like a cancer on one’s testicles– gnarly.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Byrds and then Buffalo Springfield, had we been more perceptive at the time as to how we would combined integrated musical groups and performers, we should have done the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, as well as each artist’s solo catalog as well as that of the various members of the Byrds.  We look forward to correcting that mistake at some point in the next 3-5 years so please remain alert for that day.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] We hope to present the music of Sly & the Family Stone within the next decade or so.  Please stay tuned for further information.

[v] We will present the music of Chicago- and its various members’ solo careers- sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[vi] See earlier footnote.

[vii] We are not sure when we will begin offering the music of Blue Öyster Cult but expect it will be sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the legendary British rock band UFO as well as its various side projects including music by the Michael Schenker Group, Phil Mogg, Pete Way, Waysted, and a few other iterations of the group beginning on Monday, January 11, 2021, through Sunday, May 02, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.

[xx] Weapons are not popular whereas vaccines are.  However, we mostly agree that if we were to look into investments of every politician, either they- or members of their families or straw buyers- are invested in weapons stocks.  They just don’t talk about it.  Investing in companies producing ‘life-saving vaccines’ however looks good and makes big bucks just like investing in green energy companies.  Anyone recall how the Democrats got wealthy off Solyndra before the company tanked and the regular folks lost their life savings?  It is what it is so let’s awaken, smell the danger circling around us and do something about it.  They cannot imprison all of us.

215. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 03, 2022

2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan. Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia. Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?

  57. 2020 Monday:  President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order today in which, he forbids American companies (Google comes to mind as does Microsoft and numerous other big tech firms) from hiring foreign scab workers to displace higher-paid American workers.  Far too often in today’s America, American firms force American workers to train foreign workers to do their jobs and then send them packing.  This is not right and what the president did today is amazing.  NO more displacing Americans with foreign scabs.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the stats are in for shootings in Chicago over the weekend: at least 33 people shot, 9 slain- including a 9-year-old boy and when compared to last July in Chicago, murders in the Windy City in July are up 139-percent.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at this point in time, there have been more shootings than ALL of last year’s combined.  What the hell is up with these BIG BLUE CITIES?  Where the hell are Black Lives Matter, you know, the Marxist, racist organization?  We thought black lives ‘matter?’  Apparently not.

[xv]        
  67. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.384 per gallon, $3.007 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.862 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Maryland: $3.098.  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- Aruba: $4.852 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,599,366,342,829 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xviii]  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 Kuwait, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Sweden with $47 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  68. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 133 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the flaming fiasco down along the U.S.-Mexico border and her 39th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says that Joe Biden “MUST fire” “Kooky Kamala” because she has no clue as to what the f**k she is doing.  Elsewhere, Grant Stinchfield reported on Newsmax this evening that the mayor of McAllen, Texas, Javier Villalobos, has declared a disaster as they are being overrun by thousands of illegal aliens with no end in sight.
  69. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Germany has set a trial date for a 100-year-old Nazi death camp guard.   Next, the Chi-Coms are lashing out angrily at the Republican Party following the release of their report on the origins and spread of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Oh, boohoo, Chi-Coms, shut the hell up.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their attack on the GOP, Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th CD, says the Chi-Coms’ wailing and sniveling over the recent report is further proof of their duplicity in the crime of the century- unleashing the Chi-Vi on the world.  Rep. McCaul said it is ‘the worst cover-up in human history.’  No wonder the Beijing bullies are upset.  Speaking of the communists, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, has once again called for moving the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics out of the authoritarian country and somewhere else to a more deserving country.   Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says that the United States ‘must cut off communist China completely.’
  70. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Saudi foreign ministry has suggested that it won’t take part in the Abraham Accords.  Well, screw them.  Next, South Korea reports that the North Koreans want sanctions eased for them to return to direct talks with the United States.  Moving on, the Lebanese president is calling for an investigation into the Beirut blast that leveled much of the city a year ago tomorrow.  At least 204 people lost their lives while another 6,500 suffering injuries of varying degrees.  Tens of thousands more were made homeless in the space of a second.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken spoke with the Afghan president to see about ‘hastening along the peace negotiations with the Taliban.’  Mr. Secretary, the Taliban is overrunning the country, sir, how about helping them with air support?
  71. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The United States is donating another 110 million doses of the Chi-Com Virus vaccine abroad.  Hopefully, it’s the Johnson & Johnson crap.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Florida’s schools have quickly rescinded their mask mandates for the upcoming school year after ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis threatened their funding.  NO MASKS for kids!  In fact, Governor Pete Ricketts, R-NE, says that ‘mask mandates and lockdowns are counterproductive.’     
  72. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Elsewhere, scientific journal writer Peter Hotez says that ‘questioning Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci should be labeled a “HATE CRIME.”  Interesting note: Professor Hotez has received funding from Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.’  Man, the fruit does not fall far from the pestilent stink-tree.
  73. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former President Barack Hussein Obama ripped into the ‘Republican fog’ surrounding voting rights in this country.  President Donald J. Trump was highlighting a new forensic report that shows that Joe Biden received more than 8 million fraudulent votes in last year’s presidential election.
  74. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden News I– Enfeebled Joe Biden believes that putting pressure on U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen G. Breyer to retire would harm the nation’s highest court and would politicize it.  Of course, the Democratic-Socialists reacted to this statement in the same way that Dracula would to a Crucifix and a vial of Holy Water. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new report regarding the Biden regime says that federal agencies do extraordinarily little to protect the data of U.S. citizens from being hacked by foreign adversaries. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News I– The Democrats are at war with one another and the division within their hardcore-left-of-center party continues to grow.  Democrats are screeching and wailing over the end of the evictions moratorium which leads the rest of us to ask a scathing question of the liberal losers: YOU were giving people an extra 300 smackers on top of their unemployment so where the f**k did it go?  They weren’t paying their rent with the extra $1,200 per month.  This is crazy, landlords have bills, too, as do the people they hire to do the electrical work, the plumbing work, the reclamation work should the tenants to whom they have given housing trashed it.  Many people invest in rental properties to pay the bills and now, the Democrats are destroying that segment of the American economy along with numerous others.  Shame on them.
  77. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News II– Republican National Committee Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that for Donald J. Trump to win in 2024, Republicans must win in 2022.  Next, many people now believe that the reason as to WHY New York AG Leticia James came out and trashed her boss, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov by listing his crimes as disgraced FBI Director James “Criminal” Comey did Hillary Rodham Clinton back in 2016 is that she wants to cripple him so she can run for his job and possibly win in 2022.  Now, that’s devious.  Still, the Albany County D.A. is now investigating Governor Cuomo so maybe someone else is going to do the dirty work for A.G. James.
  78. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney says that the Department of Justice ordering the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to the cretins in the U.S. Congress is occurring sans any evidence of wrongdoing.   Next, that crackpot scarecrow loser in the U.S. Senate- Elizabeth Warren, DS-MA,- says that ‘GOP voting laws are somehow connected to abortion.’  Say the flip what?  This woman is an angry loser.  Elsewhere, Governor J.B. Pritzker, DS-IL, says he is going to ‘enforce background checks on private gun sales.’  You should have been doing that already.  Moving on, the U.S. Senate voted to award ‘gold medals’ to the Capitol Hill cops who were at the Capitol on January 06, 2021.  What a load of crap.
  79. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News IV– Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax lambasted the 18 Republicans who eagerly signed onto the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Again, here they are: Roy Blunt, R-MO; Richard Burr, R-NC; Shelley Moore Capito, R-WV; Bill Cassidy, R-LA; Mike Crapo; R-ID, James Risch, R-ID; Thom Tillis; R-NC; Todd Young, R-IN; Mike Rounds, R-SD; John Hoeven, R-ND, Kevin Cramer, R-ND; Lisa Murkowski, R-AK; Rob Portman, R-OH; Mitt Romney, R-UT; Susan Collins, R-ME; Chuck Grassley, R-IA; Lindsey Graham, R-SC; and “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY.  Here is some more of the crap contained within the ‘infrastructure bill’- $16.3 billion for ‘renewable energy’ program; $250 million for invasive plant elimination (how about for invasive human beings’ elimination, i.e., ILLEGAL ALIENS?), and $10 million per year for Motor Vehicle per-mile user fee program.  So now, the American people will be taxed per mile by local, state, and federal government?  There will be a new industry just as there is now with the manufacturing of vaccination ID cards, one in which, odometers will be reset and reset. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday R: Political News V– Tucker Carlson reported tonight from Budapest, Hungary, that the New York Times- the so-called ‘paper of record’- received millions of dollars from communist China to shill for the thugs in Beijing.  Islands that belong to Japan, they claimed belonged to the Chi-Coms as well as did everything to trash anyone who said that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu came from the Wuhan Institute of Virology was ‘xenophobic,’ a ‘racist,’ and/or a ‘bigot.’  Mr. Carlson said that the New York Times was not the only ‘news outlet’ to take Chi-Com yuan and then lie their asses off about anything their Beijing masters ordered them to do.  Wow.  Hence, ‘Chi-Coms good, Wuhan lab ‘innocent,’ and Donald J. Trump a ‘big, fat, evil racist.’  What a load of crap.
  81. 2021 Tuesday S: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee finally is seeking to repeal the 2002 use of military force in Iraq powers they gave to President George W. Bush.  Interested observers ask what took you so long to do this?  You should never have bestowed those powers on President Bush.  The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes, however, that the Deep State forced Bush’s hand into invading Iraq so everyone could rake in lots of bucks while then using the exact same war powers act to trash Bush #43.
  82. 2021 Tuesday T: Business News– In various parts of the United States, McDonalds Restaurants will require both employees and customers to mask up or to go across the street to Burger King.   Restaurants in New York City are going to require that ALL customers- with the blessings of outgoing NYC Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio- to show proof of vaccination, i.e., show their papers, otherwise, they cannot enter, sit down, and eat.  It would appear that the government is going to have private businesses do their dirty work just as they require employers to deduct payroll taxes from their workers’ salaries and then hand them over to government apparatchiks.  Well, there will always be restaurants that welcome all diners so it is important that we share names and locations in the same ways that hoboes of old shared whose house would provide one a meal and which house would not.
  83. 2021 Tuesday U: Special Election News– Tonight in the GOP primary race in Ohio’s 15th CD in a race to fill the vacant seat of former Rep. Steve Stivers, Donald J. Trump-backed candidate Mike Carey won big time.  Meanwhile, on the Democratic side of the aisle, state Rep. Allison Russo was projected to win the Democratic nomination.  The general election will be this November.  And they say Trump-backed candidates can’t win.  You win some, you lose some and Barack Hussein Obama has lost almost every endorsement he ever made- “Loser” with a capital “L.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– New York Attorney General Leticia James released the results of the probe into Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and none of it looked good.  She would not commit to prosecuting the immoral chief executive and left it for others to do.  New York state Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat, said today “NO one is above the law.”  Later in the day, Joe Biden called for the Empire State governor to ‘step down’ for his reprobate activities as did House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.   Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st CD, called for the ‘immediate arrest’ of the immoral governor on grounds of criminal sexual harassment.  Good.  Lock him up.
  85. 2021 Tuesday W: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– However, Joe Biden is so out of it that he did not realize that as he was calling on his fellow Democratic-Socialist to step down, he opened the door for others to demand Mr. Biden step down due to his LONG HISTORY of groping, grabbing, smooching, rubbing, and saying all sorts of suggestive and disturbing things.  What is clear, too, is that AG James lacks the balls to pursue her boss, Governor “Killer” Cuomo.   Elsewhere, Missouri Governor Mike Parson has officially pardoned Mark and Patricia McCloskey for their ‘gun crimes convictions’ of last year.  Excellent.
  86. 2021 Tuesday X: Mass Shootings News– Two employees were wounded in a warehouse shooting in Tennessee.  Cops responding on scene shot the shooter.  Elsewhere, after some shots were fired outside the Pentagon, the entire facility went on lockdown.  It seems the bravest of the brave had to cower in fear inside the walls of America’s defense epicenter.   Apparently, a law enforcement officer may have lost his life in the incident.  Jihad?  White Supremacism?  Black Lives Matter?  Angry lover?  We don’t know.
  87. 2021 Tuesday Y: Big Tech News– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, slams YouTube for its censorship of free speech and urges users to find alternative sites to share their views.
  88. 2021 Tuesday Z: California State News– Backers of Recall Governor Gavin Newsom are seeking to block language on the upcoming recall ballot that the effort to cleanse California of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is a ‘power grab by the GOP.  Governor Newsom, people from across the political spectrum are banding together to get YOU out of office just as they did with Governor Gray Davis, another corrupt Democrat governor.
  89. 2021 Tuesday AA: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1682 what with a $179 million jackpot on the line: 01, 09, 17, 27, 34, and Mega 24.  Out of 73,454 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $1,091,799.  The winning ticket was sold at the Cortesia Market in Pacoima, CA 91331.
  90. 2022 Wednesday: Many pundits are speculating as to the REAL REASON for U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s visit to Taiwan.  Sure, American politicians should be able to travel wherever and whenever they wish without being fearful of communist thugs like communist China or fascist hoodlums like Russia.  Some such as Tucker Carlson, Eric Bolling, Chris Salcedo, and others speculate as to whether “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ill-timed visit is a false flag so the Chi-Coms can snatch up the islands to the west of Taiwan with which to then launch an invasion of Taiwan?  Anything is indeed possible in this world and some such as my family and me see signs of the End Times on the horizon.  One cannot make this stuff up.  No, all one need do is to read the Holy Bible.  Still, after all the suffering, the death, and the destruction, we will win.  That is the promise of GOD.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilte” De Soto.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys released their next live album, “Songs from Here and Back,” a special release album that came out on May 15, 2006, one that came out from Hallmark for two months back in the day.  This is rather a hodgepodge of tunes, most of the live ones from 1989- two from back in 1974- as well as three solo studio tunes, one from Brian Wilson, one from Mike Love, and one from Alan Jardine.  You get the lineup back in 1989- Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, and Alan Jardine- plus the longtime Beach Boys backup band, the one that provides the background on the road.  The two from 1974 feature Dennis Wilson and Ricky Fataar in the mix while the solo studio recordings feature a variety of accompanying musicians.  IF you can find this one, it’s a worthy addition to one’s collection and if you can’t, well, it is what it is.  Enjoy.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Not sure if we will ever present the music of the other bands with which York played like the Bees, the Sir Douglas Quintet, the Museums, CRY, Gene Clark’s solo band, and Carla Olson.

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iv] When we begin promoting American bands again, we will be sure to include the Stray Cats as well as the group’s individual members.  We hope you will remain alert for the day we do.

[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, Wings, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[vi] We began promoting the music of Love, the famed Los Angeles, California, rock band on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  Please seek out the music of this awesome band.  This group was among the best of the 1960s.

[vii] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.

  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.

  58. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

  68. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

[iv] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[v] 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 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.

195. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2022

2017 Friday: A Russian-American lobbyist said he attended a June 2016 meeting with President Donald J. Trump’s son that was billed as part of a Russian-government effort to help the Republican campaign. In 2022, all of this would proven to be Democrat Party engineered bullshit. We also believe that the Chi-Coms and the flipping Canucks had a hand in this scam and we hope one day, they pay a tremendous price for their perfidy. We would love to see the Chi-Coms nuked off the face of the planet.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 120

195. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 14, 2022:

Bastille Day (France)

President Gerald R. Ford; famed session drummer Andy Newmark, the Byrds featuring Clarence White, the J. Geil’s Band featuring Stephen Jo Bladd, Steve Miller of the Steve Miller Band, and Traffic featuring Jim Gordon:

  1. 939 Tuesday: The reign of the 127th Roman Catholic Pope Stephen VIII begins on this date.  He would serve as the Vicar of Christ from today until October 30, 942.
  2. 1430 Wednesday: The Burgundians hand over their prisoner, Joan of Arc—whom they captured in May—to Pierre Cauchon, the bishop of Beauvais for trial.
  3. 1456 Monday: At the Battle of Belgrade, the Hungarians defeat the Ottoman Empire, sending them into headlong retreat.  It is a stunning victory by Christian forces over the Satanic Muslim scum seeking to topple European Christianity and to replace it with their crazed jihadist faith.  Crucify them all, Hungarians, just like Vlad the Impaler!
  4. 1520 Wednesday: The Battle of Otumba, Mexico, occurs as Conquistadors under the command of Hernando Cortez and their Native American allies attack the Aztecs.  The Spanish are determined to destroy Mexico City and to then put the Aztec scum to the sword.
  5. 1714 Saturday: At the Battle of Aland, the Russian fleet overpowers and beats a much-larger Swedish fleet.
  6. 1789 Tuesday: During the opening moments of the fledgling French Revolution, citizens of Paris stormed the Bastille Prison and released the seven prisoners inside after killing the Swiss garrison and the military governor.  This would lead to a left-wing takeover of the country with the people eradicating their enemies- real and imagine- at breakneck pace.  In 1917, the Bolsheviks in Russia would follow a similar track like the scumbags Antifa and Black Lives Matter are in the United States from 2020 onward.  The only good leftist is a dead leftist.  Remember: you heard it here first.
  7. 1798 Saturday: The Alien and Sedition Act of the United States prohibits “false, malicious and scandalous’ writings about the U.S. government.  The bogus Joe Biden regime in 2022 is following a similar path as it seeks to silence its enemies. 
  8. 1845 Monday: A fire in New York City burns down 1,000-plus homes and kills many citizens.
  9. 1853 Thursday: Commodore Matthew Perry relayed to Japanese officials a letter from President Millard Fillmore (Whig) requesting trade relations.  However, by the time the Commodore delivered the letter, President Fillmore’s term in office had already expired.  Meanwhile, the first World’s Fair opens at the Crystal Palace in New York City.
  10. 1868 Tuesday: Alvin J. Fellows patented the tape measure on this date.
  11. 1881 Thursday: Outlaw William H. Bonney Jr., alias “Billy the Kid,” was shot and killed by Sheriff Pat Garret in Fort Sumner in present-day New Mexico.
  12. 1911 Friday: Harry N. Atwood became the first pilot to land an airplane—a Wright Model B airplane—on the grounds of the White House after flying in from Boston; he was greeted by President William Howard Taft.  
  13. 1912 Sunday: American folk singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie- “This Land is Your Land”- was born in Okemah, Okla., on this date. 
  14. 1913 Monday: Gerald R. Ford—future Republican 40th vice president and 38th president of the United States—was born on this date in Omaha, Nebraska.
  15. 1914 Tuesday: Robert H. Goddard patented liquid rocket fuel.
  16. 1921 Thursday: Italian-born anarchists Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were convicted in Dedham, Massachusetts, of murdering a shoe company paymaster and his guard.  The pair paid the ultimate price, being executed six years later by the state.
  17. 1933 Friday: The National Socialist Party (NAZI) becomes the ONLY political party allowed in Germany.  By the way, according to Chef Tiresias at the AICP-END Blog, the Nazi Party is a leftwing creature and not one belonging to the right, hence the word ‘socialist’ contained within its title.  Nazism is race-based/crony capitalism socialism whereas communism is class-based socialism and fascism is nationalism combined with corporatism and the accumulation of wealth at the point of a gun.
  18. 1934 Saturday: Babe Ruth hits his 700th home run.
  19. 1938 Thursday: Italian Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini “Il Duce,” publishes a manifesto against both Jews and Africans.  While somewhat ambivalent on the question of Jews, being colleagues with German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler forces his hand whereas Africans are in the way of his recreation of the Roman Empire, Africa being the prime target of his globalist ambitions.
  20. 1941 Monday: In World War II Lithuania, the Nazis murder 6,000 Jews.  Across the western portion of the Soviet Union from the north from Finland south to the drive to Rostov, the Axis juggernaut continues rolling up the Red Army.
  21. 1942 Tuesday: Encouraged by the Nazis, anti-Semitic riots break out across occupied Amsterdam.  Elsewhere, Stephen Jo Bladd—future longtime drummer with the hard-rocking blues band, the J. Geil’s Band [i]—is born on this date in Boston, Massachusetts.    
  22. 1943 Wednesday: Although the main battle surrounding the Kursk bulge has petered out for the Germans, Army Group South continues attacking along the southern line of the massive salient while the Red Army is counterattacking in the direction of Orel.  The Germans cannot fall into headlong retreat as a secondary defensive line is not really ready for them to do so, thus they have to maintain pressure on the Soviets lest everything implodes.
  23. 1944 Friday: Heavy fighting continues on the Eastern Front as the Soviets continue their drive to liberate Belorussia and other western portions of the USSR.  The Germans continue parrying their thrusts with diminishing reserves but there are so many thrusts that it is becoming impossible for the Germans and their few remaining allies to stabilize the front.  Meanwhile in France, the Allies continue building up strength for the dash to liberate France.  Can the Fuhrer produce the miracle weapons he continues telling the German people will win the war?
  24. 1945 Saturday: During World War II, the USS South Dakota is the first American warship to bombard Japan from offshore.  Meanwhile, former Axis partner Italy declared war on its former ally, Imperial Japan, on this date.  Famed future session drummer Jim Gordon who would play with the British rock band, Traffic[ii], and with Eric Clapton[iii] before murdering his mother and going to prison was born on this date in Los Angeles, California.
  25. 1946 Sunday: The book that would change the world was published on this date: “Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care” by Dr. Benjamin Spock.
  26. 1948 Wednesday: During their War of Independence, the Israeli Air Force bombs Cairo, Egypt.  Not expecting anything like this, the Egyptian people run amok in the streets.
  27. 1949 Thursday: The Soviet Union explodes its first atom bomb.  This would cause consternation across the world. 
  28. 1950 Friday: In Port Chester, New York, future session drummer Andy Newmark is born.  This man would play with practically everyone at one time or another such as Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton, Carly Simon, Sly & the Family Stone, George Benson, Gary Wright, and far too many more to catalog here.
  29. 1951 Saturday: A monument honoring Dr. George Washington Carver is unveiled to the public in Joplin, Missouri.  This is the first national park in the United States to honor an African American.  
  30. 1953 Tuesday: The North Koreans/Communist Chinese launch a major offensive in Korea.  After much heavy fighting, the UN forces led by the United States will throw the communist scum back yet again.
  31. 1958 Monday: The army of Iraq overthrew the monarchy imposed on the nation following World War II.
  32. 1964 Tuesday: In a speech to the Republican National Convention in San Francisco, supporters of Senator Barry Goldwater, R-AZ, booed New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller as he called on the GOP to denounce political extremists.
  33. 1965 Wednesday: The American space probe Mariner 4 flew by Mars and sent back photographs of the planet.
  34. 1966 Thursday: The city of Chicago awoke to shocking news that eight student nurses had been murdered during the night in a South Side dormitory.  A jury later convicted criminal drifter Richard Speck and a judge sentenced him to death.  However, another judge later reduced his sentence to life in prison where the son-of-a-bitch died in 1991.
  35. 1968 Sunday: While playing for the Atlanta Braves, “Hammering Hank” Aaron hits his 500th career home run in a game against the San Francisco Giants.  In the third inning, Giants’ pitcher Mike McCormick offered up a juicy fastball and “Hammering Hank” made him pay.  He became the 8th player in Major League Baseball to achieve this amazing milestone.
  36. 1973 Saturday: Phil Everly storms offstage at a concert declaring an end to the Everly Brothers[iv].  Elsewhere, Clarence White—famed lead guitarist with the Byrds[v]—died after a drunken driver hit him in the parking lot at the Whisky A-Go-Go in Palmdale, CA.
  37. 1976 Wednesday: At the Democrat Party’s National Convention in New York City, Governor Jimmy Carter of Georgia wins the presidential nomination.  (Note- until senile Joe Biden comes along in 2020, President Jimmy Carter would have the dubious distinction of holding the title of ‘worst president ever.’  Barack Obama cannot hold this title being an illegitimate president: he was NOT a U.S. citizen).  
  38. 1977 Thursday: The U.S. House of Representatives establishes a permanent select committee on intelligence.  They should bring back the committee investigating un-American activities.
  39. 1980 Monday: The Republican National Convention opened in Detroit, where nominee-apparent Ronald Reagan told a welcoming rally he and his supporters were determined to “make America great again,” which he did after eight years in office.
  40. 1985 Sunday: The last USFL football game takes place with the Baltimore Stars beating the Oakland Invaders by a score of 28-24.
  41. 1986 Monday: Richard W. Miller becomes the first FBI agent convicted of espionage charges.
  42. 1987 Tuesday: Guitarist Steve Miller receives a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
  43. 1998 Tuesday: Los Angeles sued 15 tobacco companies for $2.5 billion over the dangers of secondhand smoke.
  44. 1999 Wednesday: Race-based school bussing in Boston ended after 25 years, much to the relief of everyone involved in the stupid mess.
  45. 2003 Monday: Newspaper columnist Robert Novak publicly revealed the CIA employment of Valerie Plame, wife of Joseph Wilson, a former U.S. ambassador in Africa had twisted prewar intelligence on Iraq.  Of course, Wilson and his wife were Democratic Party deep state hacks intent on causing as many problems for the George W. Bush administration as possible.
  46. 2004 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate scuttled a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.  Forty-eight senators voted to advance the measure, 12 shy of the required 60 while 50 voted to block it.
  47. 2009 Monday: The iTunes Music Store reaches 1.5 billion applications downloaded.  Meanwhile at her Senate confirmation hearing, Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor pushed back vigorously against Republican charges that she would bring bias and a liberal- Obama- agenda to the nation’s highest court.  Since her time on the bench, it definitely appears that the fears of the GOP were true.
  48. 2010 Wednesday: In the 18th annual ESPY awards, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees and skier Lindsay Vonn win, the male and female athlete awards, respectively.
  49. 2011 Thursday: Neptune completes its first orbit around the sun since being discovered in 1846.
  50. 2013 Sunday: In Iraq, a suicide attacker detonated a massive car bomb at a checkpoint near the British Embassy and the interim government’s headquarters in Baghdad, killing 11 people.  Elsewhere, the Mexican Army captures Miguel Trevino Morales, commander of the dreaded “Los Zetas’ drug cartel.  Finally, thousands of demonstrators across the country, ginned up by the news media, protested a Florida jury’s decision the day before to clear George Zimmerman in the shooting death of black teen, Trayvon Martin.
  51. 2014 Monday:  Hamas rejects a peace deal brokered by Egypt and agreed to by Israel; Israel warned that the rejection could result in military action to stop rocket attacks from Palestinian militants.  Meanwhile, the Church of England voted overwhelmingly in favor of allowing women to become bishops. 
  52. 2015 Tuesday: After journeying 3 billion miles, NASA’s New Horizons space probe reestablishes contact with NASA and begins transmitting the first photos of Pluto and its five moons.  Launched in 2006, the probe will continue transmitting data for the next 16 months.   
  53. 2016 Thursday: Terror struck Bastille Day celebrations in the French Riviera city of Nice as a heavy truck plowed into the festive crowd, killing 86 people in an attack the scumbags of the Islamic State claimed as one of their own; police shot the jihadist driver dead.
  54. 2017 Friday: A Russian-American lobbyist said he attended a June 2016 meeting with President Donald J. Trump’s son that was billed as part of a Russian-government effort to help the Republican campaign.  In 2022, all of this would prove to be Democrat Party engineered bullshit.  We also believe that the Chi-Coms and the flipping Canucks had a hand in this scam, and we hope one day, they pay a tremendous price for their perfidy.  We would love to see the Chi-Coms nuked off the face of the planet. [vi]
  55. 2018 Saturday: The government of Nicaragua reluctantly reports that more than 300 people have been killed by Sandinista forces, people protesting against the communist thug government of dictator Daniel Noriega, someone Democrats in the United States praise.  That’s commies for you.
  56. 2019 Sunday: Famed American boxer Pernell Whitaker dies at age 55 after being hit by a speeding automobile.   A four-division champion, he won Olympic gold in 1984.  Over the course of his professional career, he compiled a record of 46 fights, 40 wins (17 KOs), 4 losses, 1 draw, and 1 no contest.
  57. 2020 Tuesday: Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg finds herself in John Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland, tonight.  She is undergoing antibiotic treatment for an unknown condition.  We wish her well.   Meanwhile, in the Alabama GOP runoff for the right to face Democrat Doug Jones in November, Tommy Tuberville, supported by President Donald J. Trump, pounds the final nail into the coffin of former U.S. senator and former U.S. Attorney-General Jeff Sessions by beating him.  We always liked Senator sessions but when the jig’s up, the jig is up.
  58. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 13,203,571 confirmed cases, UP by 258,061 cases, 575,201 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,757 deaths, and 7,331,608 confirmed recoveries, UP by 329,393 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 3,483,905 confirmed cases, UP by 55,443 new cases, 138,358 confirmed deaths, UP by 745 new deaths, and 1,026,816 confirmed recoveries, UP by 26,848 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).   
  59. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 336,508 confirmed cases, 7,087 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,264 confirmed cases, 22 confirmed deaths, and 911 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 42,161 confirmed cases, 1,438 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 403,175 confirmed number of cases, 32,350 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the numbers you tea-bagging dimwit.  Shame on you.    
  60. 2020 Tuesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals- Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,649.59, UP 556.79 points (2.13%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,488.58, UP 97.73 points (0.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,197.52, UP 42.30 points (1.34%).  The price of GOLD is $1,811.50 per troy oz., -1.90 (-0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $19.68 per troy ounce, +0.145 (+0.74%).  The price of PLATINUM is $842.80 per troy oz, +6.00 (0.72%) while the price of COPPER is $2.94 per pound, +0.005 (+0.17%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.54 per barrel, +0.25 (+0.62%).

[viii]  
  62. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 305,441 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 98,637 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  63. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,848,767 confirmed cases, 63,940 confirmed deaths, and 2,080,971 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,428,435 confirmed cases, 38,282 confirmed deaths, and 2,253,793 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 38,653 confirmed cases, 521 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 460,213 confirmed cases, 6,078 confirmed deaths, and 228,112 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Grand Princess Ship: they have 122 confirmed cases, 7 confirmed deaths, and 115 confirmed recoveries. [ix]    
  64. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 848,322 confirmed cases, 6,441 confirmed deaths, and 836,661 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Tajikistan, 148th country on the list: 13,587 cases of the virus, 331 confirmed deaths and 12,961 confirmed recoveries. [x]

[xiv]        
  66. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.313 per gallon, $3.001 in Florida, $4.059 in Hawaii, and $3.838 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Guam: $4.379.  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- Malawi: $4.242 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,521,987,904,317 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Cayman Island, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan with $235 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  67. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 113 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and her 19th day since her one and only visit to the southern border.  In between slandering rural American voters out of her ignorance, the ‘Border Czar’ now is standing with the fugitive Texas Democrats by comparing them to Frederick Douglass and the Suffragettes.  What a moron.  Anyhow, here are the stats for the illegal alien invasion as compiled by One America News: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens in the country: $529,756,608.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the millions of vermin in the country: $213,132,541,952.  Next, (3) here is the number for illegals estimated to have crossed the southern border this year: 2,184,438.  Finally, (4) conservative estimated number for illegals suspected to be roaming the byways of the country: 36,184,436.  Note- since the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day first began writing back in 2009, we said back then that there were between 35-50 million human flotsam and jetsam clogging up the country whereas now, we believe there is between 75-100 million illegal aliens.
  68. 2021 Wednesday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Tucker Carlson reports on his news program on Fox News this evening that whistleblowers have handed over information that shows Lt. Colonel Matthew J. Burrows of the USAF has given his subordinates information regarding the U.S. military’s transport of hundreds of thousands of illegals across the nation.  They are not to take photos; they are not to talk of the seeding operations of illegal aliens across the country nor should they share any information on social media.  Anyone caught doing so will face repercussions.   U.S. Air Force aircraft and U.S. Air Force bases are being used as staging grounds and transportation hubs so the Bidenistas can remake the country they seemingly loathe and seek to overthrow from within.  This is not good, and it must stop NOW. [xviii]   Stephen Miller, former White House senior adviser says this is a RESETTLEMENT PROGRAM and that it goes on 24/7/365 since Joe Biden entered the White House.
  69. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Taliban sets off a bomb in Kabul, Afghanistan, which claimed the lives of at least four people and wounded at least 11 more.   Reports coming out of the crap country say that the Taliban is carrying out mass executions of Afghan government troops.  Kabul is appealing for help from the Iranians, the Chi-Coms, and the Russians.  Elsewhere, as violence continues to increase in South Africa over the arrest of former President Jacob “The Spear” Zuma, the specter of food and fuel shortages is on the rise.  Meanwhile, French healthcare workers are pushing back against President Emanuel Macron’s orders that ALL healthcare workers in that country MUST get vaccinated for the Bat Pox or surrender their jobs.  This demand by the government has led to mass protests in the streets across France requiring French law enforcement to let loose with tear gas, water cannons, rubber bullets, and nightsticks.
  70. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II– The Chi-Coms, the Russians, and the Iranians are threatening the Biden regime that it had better NOT interfere on behalf of the Cuban people which sadly, we know they won’t.  They are saying ‘hands off Cuba’ which is wrong which is why it is imperative to get President Donald J. Trump back into the White House.  The Chi-Coms are also threatening the Biden regime NOT to interfere in Hong Kong or in Taiwan.  We say, “F**k them.”   Meanwhile, while inflation in the United States hovers around 5.4-percent, Great Britain reports they have hit 2.5-percent inflation, their highest rate in 3 years.
  71. 2021 Wednesday J: Health and Medical Alerts– California’s Department of Health is requiring ALL students and teachers to wear masks indoors to fight off the Chi-Vi.  Stupid.  Elsewhere, a children’s advocacy group is suing Washington, D.C., school district over allowing children to be vaccinated with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine without notifying the parents.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, unvaccinated Purdue students will have to “make arrangements” for their schoolwork meaning they cannot sit in classroom with their fellow students.
  72. 2021 Wednesday K: Joe Biden News I– Fake News Media hacks continue celebrating Joe Biden’s big speech yesterday in the Keystone State because he did not fall down, did not start slobbering, did not go blank.  Somehow, the old coot made it through the speech.  However, they did not show the ‘raucous crowd’ hooting and cheering, clapping, and shouting, nor did they show the empty streets traveled by the ‘presidential motorcade’ on the way to the event.  Only Newsmax and One America News showed the vacant streets.
  73. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News I– First, in Arizona, Blake Masters has launched a U.S. Senate run for 2022.  Business owners in Texas say that Joe Biden’s economic policies are worse than the Xi Jinping Bat Flu lockdowns of 2020.  Amen.  In other fascinating news, it appears that the Democratic-Socialists of America are backing Cuba’s government over the long-suffering Cuban people.  Wow.  Add to that the fact that U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas said today that ‘Cuban and Haitian refugees should NOT come to the United States via the sea.’  Wow.  Apparently, Cuban refugees are pro-democracy and despise communism thus they would find NO home here in the United States as long as the Bidenistas and their allies control power.    Speaking of the illustrious DHS secretary, Rep. Nicole Malliotakis, R-NY 11th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should apply Secretary Mayorkas’ rules for Cubans to illegal aliens on the southern border.’  Amen.
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News II– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer and his fellow Senate Democrats are set to unveil their plan with which to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level.  Wow.  Good for the country.  Elsewhere, as “Kooky Kamala” Harris continues taking heat from one gaffe after another, many Americans now believe that the ‘vice president’ is seriously out of touch with reality.  We concur.  Next, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says the request by U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken for ‘racism experts’ from the UN to help the United States combat racism ‘is insane.’  Finally, the House Select Committee on the False Flag Operation of January 06, 2021, has scheduled its first hearing.  Boy, oh, boy, what fun.
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says that inflation is likely to remain elevating until eventually moderating.  Uh, okay.  Meanwhile, the Federal Bureau of Investigation finally does something right and that is, it thwarts a kidnap plot hatched in Tehran and put into action here in the United States by four Iranian covert ops agents.  The four scumbags sought to kidnap Iranian author and freedom fighter Masih Alinejad from her Brooklyn home, get her to the coast, transport her to the S—hole nation of Venezuela where the Maduro regime would then hand her over to Iranian thugs for transport back to their country.  (Note- we hope the Biden regime will execute the potential kidnappers if it gets their hands on them).
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3577 with a $8 million jackpot on the line: 08, 15, 28, 38, 39, and Mega 18.  Out of 83,823 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,050 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #863 with a $150 million jackpot on the line: 33, 46, 52, 59, 62, and Powerball 10.  Out of 65,247 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $34,831.
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: Sports News– In the 2021 NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks evened the series up by beating the Phoenix Suns by a final score of 109-103.  The next game is Saturday, July 17.
  78. 2022 Thursday:  What stupid things will spill out of feeble Joe’s mouth today?  White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre, aka “Medusa,” or any of the other mopes in the ‘administration?’  Stick around and find out along with us…

[i] We hope to present the music of the J. Geil’s Band at some point within the next five years.  One of the great American bands, they most certainly deserve to be heard and celebrated by the readership of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.

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

[iii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[iv] We hope to celebrate the music of the Everly Brothers one day. 

[v] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[vi] Personal sentiments of Chef Cheryl La Tigre who since having moved with her family to Florida is now in the Republican camp.  Nothing like a crash course in red state politics from Ron DeSantis!

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

[xviii] This can only be occurring if General Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is permitting it to occur.  Mr. Carlson is correct when he says that this goes against the oath to the Constitution every service member from the lowest specialist to General Milley swears to.  What’s more, IF the current regime labels it a conspiracy theory to believe in the Replacement Theory, the federal government sure the hell is doing nothing to dispel that notion.  We are on the cusp of dictatorship.  Plain and fucking simple.

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 121

194. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 2022:

Nathan Bedford Forrest Day (Tennessee)

The Byrds featuring Roger McGuinn, Dire Straits featuring Chris White, World Class Chef Paul Prudhomme, Jeff Beck and Rod Stewart, Twisted Sister featuring Mark “The Animal” Mendoza, and Michael “The Jinx” Spinks:

  3. 1099 Thursday: The Crusaders launch their final assault on Muslim strongholds in Jerusalem.  Before long, the banners of Christendom would flutter over the city and the infidels put to the sword.  In modern times, revisionists of history claim the Crusaders were ‘invaders’ of Muslim land but the Muslims were the invaders- savage ones at that- and the Crusaders were merely reclaiming the region for the Kingdom of God.

  5. 1590 Friday: In Rome in the Papal States, future 239th Roman Catholic Pope Clement X is born Emilio Bonaventura Altieri.  He would become pontiff on April 29, 1670 and would lead the Holy Roman Catholic Church from then until July 22, 1676.
  6. 1754 Saturday: At the beginning of the French and Indian War, George Washington surrenders the small, circular Fort Necessity in southwestern Pennsylvania, to the French.
  7. 1787 Friday: The Congress of the Confederation adopted the Northwest Ordinance, which established a government in the Northwest Territory, an area corresponding to the present-day Midwest and Upper-Midwest.
  8. 1793 Saturday: French revolutionary writer Jean-Paul Marat was stabbed to death in his bath by Charlotte Corday, who was executed four days later.
  9. 1812 Monday: New York City passed the first pawnbroker ordinance in the history of the nation.
  10. 1832 Friday: Henry R. Schoolcraft discovers the source of the Mississippi River.

  62. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 112 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day. No. 18 since her one and only visit to the El Paso, Texas, sector, the quietest portion of the border.  We hope she is not drawing a check for this farce.
  63. 2021 Tuesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As the Cuban people continue fighting for their freedom from the totalitarian regime, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, slams enfeebled Joe Biden and Twitter over their lack of response to the cries for freedom or even worse, covering them up so as to make nice with the communist regime in Havana.  The Senator also said that the Cuban government relies on Chi-Com tech to clamp down on their people.  Next, the DEA announced that one of the Haitian Americans swept up in the dragnet in the aftermath of the assassination of President Jovenel Moise was a confidential informant.  Oh, he isn’t now but he sure as heck was back when.  Wow.
  64. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– France today fined Google $590 million for failing to pay news outlets for the news they run on their sites.  Whoa.  Go for it.  Elsewhere, in Nasiriyah, Iraq, in a hospital’s COVID-19 ward, a fire broke out killing at least 92 patients and injuring loads of others.

  66. 2021 Tuesday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– As Keystone State Democrats continue attacking Pennsylvania state Republican Senator Douglas Mastriano, the feisty senator says all he wants is the auditing of elections so the people will be secure with the outcome.  As for Georgia, more complaints about corrupt and fraudulent elections continue to arise no matter how much they try to say there isn’t.
  67. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is sending Dr. Jill to be his representative at the Tokyo Summer Olympics.  (Note- before YOU go, Dr. Jill, how about buying some Genusel and applying it to your flipping arms?  Yikes[xvii]).  In other news, Joe Biden continues taking incoming flak over his inability to come out and stand with the Cuban people.  All hell is breaking loose down there on the island while the ‘president’ continues pulling a Toobin in the White House basement.   Speaking of old Joe, when he visited Philadelphia today, NOT a single person lined the streets and when he gave his ‘speech,’ there were NO shots of the audience and only canned applause.  How embarrassing.  Still, the senile old fool claims we are facing the ‘worst crisis since the Civil War’ with states trying to clean up their voter rolls and enforcing voter laws.  What a load of crap.
  68. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News I– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘inflation is small potatoes if we spend more.’  Spend more what, Mitch?  Should we spend more money just to spend it or should we exercise fiscal austerity and stop with spending trillions of dollars?  Ignoramus.  Next, GOP senators introduce a bill to extend Title 42 border expulsions for all sick illegal aliens trying to get across the border.   In other news, John Gizzi of Newsmax says that Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, ‘will remain in the GOP’ even though her days are numbered.  Kelly Tshibaka, conservative Republican, is going to clean the anti-Trumper’s clock come November 2022.
  69. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News II– Rudy Giuliani says that the ongoing witch hunt against him by the Biden regime shows a ‘shocking intellectual dishonesty’ in how the regime and its fake news media allies are going about it.  What they are doing to Rudy smacks of Third World, banana republic politics.  Meanwhile, former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says that RNC Chairperson Ronna Romney McDaniel is a ‘liar, that the RNC did not help President Donald J. Trump during the 2020 Election’s aftermath nor are they helping him now.’  Amen.  McDaniel claims that the arguments made by Trump’s lawyers are based upon false information in a book we think by Michael Wolff.  No, Ronna, the more the American people pay attention to YOU, the more we realize you are a SHYSTER.  Resign.
  70. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News III– In other political news, we have heard how one of the Capitol Hill rioters of January 06, 2021, had a ‘Lego replica of the U.S. Capitol in his home and that he used it as a model to storm the Capitol Building on that ill-fated but overblown day.  Well, now we learn from our esteemed and wholly honorable Federal Bureau of Investigation that the Lego model was not fully constructed.  Wow.  In other political news, a Senate panel has given its okay for Supreme Court sessions to be televised.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Cuban government cannot fire on its own people.’  Yet they can and will do it.  Finally, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, says that the Democrats ‘have a plan with which to pay for $6 trillion in new spending.’  Sure, uh-huh, Chuck; it’s called borrowing the cash from the Chi-Coms which is why the Chi-Coms via straw purchasers are buying up housing tracts, apartment buildings, entire neighborhoods, and commercial real estate.  The SOBs are going to become Americans’ landlords and mortgage holders.  What a disaster.
  71. 2021 Tuesday O: Business News– Thanks to Major League Baseball playing WOKE politics, Georgia businesses are feeling an incredible pecuniary loss what with the All-Star Game occurring in lily-white Denver, Colorado, this week.   Next, the Trump Organization has removed CFO Allen Weisselberg from his duties while the ongoing witch hunt against him continues.
  72. 2021 Tuesday P:  Joe Biden Regime News I– Andrew Saul, Social Security commissioner under President Donald J. Trump who was fired by Joe Biden when asked to resign and would not now is denied access to the agency’s computers.  Next, the Biden regime is nominating ousted RINO Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona to become the next U.S. ambassador to Turkey.  Wow.  In other much more embarrassing news for the administration, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki said today what everyone knows and that is that the groper-in-chief Joe Biden does not write his speeches, press releases, or anything else, that someone in the administration does.  Folks, it requires two weeks of prepping and heavy-duty psych meds for the ‘46th president’ to be able to come across as semi-coherent as he did today in Pennsylvania.
  73. 2021 Tuesday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Steve Cortes said on Newsmax to get ready- even in liberal states- for the upcoming clashes between America’s parents and local school boards that have gone WOKE and are pushing Criminal Race Theory, uh, Critical Race Theory.  Speaking of Criminal Race Theory, Oklahoma’s Board of Education has banned the teaching of this Marxist claptrap.  Excellent.
  74. : Whacked-Out News of the Day– Senator Bernie Sanders, CPUSA-VT, spoke up ‘in support of the Cuban people’ (yeah, right) saying that they have the right to protest peacefully.  Wow.

  77. 2021 Tuesday U: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott (R) says that the 57 Texas House Democrats who fled the state for Washington, D.C., will be arrested upon their return to Texas.  Texas Republicans have passed a bill that will allow Texas law enforcement to go to other states to arrest the scum who are filibustering new voter integrity laws.
  78. 2021 Tuesday V: U.S. Military News– U.S. Rear Admiral Mark Montgomery, (Ret), co-author of a report says that the U.S. Navy is beleaguered by WOKENESS and that many junior officers fear the Navy will survive a clash with the Chi-Coms.  Junior officers believe that the emphasis on WOKENESS and diversity officers is more important than is preparedness to go to war with the nation’s enemies.  Apparently, administrative training takes precedence over everything else which is WRONG.  When a ship is on deployment, it must focus on warfighting and not on who’s a WHITE SUPREMACIST.  Amen.
  79. 2021 Tuesday W: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1676 has a $102 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 03, 10, 17, 26, 55, and Mega 24.  Out of 58,641 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 39 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $462 apiece.
  80. 2022 Wednesday: After watching the Dr. Jill clown show the past couple of days, if there is one thing I know, having a Ph.D. after one’s name means nothing.  Hispanics are as unique as breakfast tacos?  Really?  As a Democrat, I am embarrassed at both this ignorant woman and her bumbling, senile husband.  Perhaps it’s true what my colleagues say?  That Joe is in the pocket of the Chi-Coms?  Holy, Moly.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys- “Endless Harmony Soundtrack”- came out on August 11, 1998, and is a tie-in to a documentary film on the band as well as a presentation of previously unheard/unreleased music from the Beach Boys.  This set mostly is one compiled and produced by Mike Love and Bruce Johnston as following the death of Carl Wilson, both Brian Wilson and Alan Jardine abandoned the joint group efforts of the past.  This split among members would last until 2012 when the original members remaining would reunite for a celebratory tour.  We hope you will seek this one out for all the unique recordings, alternate takes, and selected archival cuts.  It’s a good one and worth investigation by YOU, the veteran fan.  Check it out and enjoy.

[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Dire Straits within the next decade.

[iii] Not sure when or if we will ever do the Sex Pistols’ music but who knows?  If we are still here in 30-40 years, we very well could.  Stay tuned for future developments.

[iv] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included the Jeff Beck Group, 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.

[v] We promoted the music of this venerable British guitarist 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.

  65. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 105 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 11 since her first and only visit to the quiet sector of El Paso, Texas, where she conducted a photo op.  Next, here are the updated statistics on the illegal alien invaders as presented by One America News: first, (1) Cost this Day of caring for the ILLEGAL ALIENS: $509,132,544.  Incredible.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the flotsam and jetsam of humanity: $204,344,803,328.  Imagine what that money could do for the American people?  Amazing.  Still, it goes to illegal alien criminals.  Next, (3) estimated number of illegals who have entered the United States this year: 2,0994,370.  Finally, (4) estimated number of illegals in the country, a conservative number: 36,094,368.  We believe and said so back in 2009 when the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day tapped out its first keystrokes that back then, there were between 35-50 million river-swimming, border-hopping, visa-overstaying POS in the country whereas now, a true estimate of illegal aliens in the country in our view is between 75-100 million.  Time for Operation Wetback II, time to round them up, pile them aboard derelict freighters, boxcars, buses, 747 Max liners, even into automobiles and send them back to whence the f**k they came.  It is ‘us’ or it’s ‘them.’  There is no middle ground.
  66. 2021 Tuesday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– In other border-related news, a new Democrat bill, perhaps the infrastructure bill or whatever else will provide NO funds for continued building of the southern border wall and will remove funding from Customs and Border Protection which will effectively 86 our border security.   Still, Biden backers are worried over the potential fallout coming from slobbering Joe Biden’s proposed reopening of the borders.  Over what borders?  The southern one is wide open.
  67. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Although the writings on the wall, the Afghan government is calling up hundreds of troops with which to do battle with the Taliban.  Meanwhile, as we predicted a couple of days back, the Chi-Coms are looking to expand their reach into the war-torn, barbaric nation.  We expect the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Iranians may carve out enclaves in which, they can rape the hellhole of whatever resources exist there like, uh, opium, the Chi-Coms can then sell to narcoterrorists and drug-traffickers for export to the U.S.  (Note- we hope the Chi-Coms and Russkies get embroiled in a 40-year-war there).  The Taliban is trying to ‘clean up their image’ as they compete for power in the void left by the U.S. withdrawal.  (Note- no more stoning women, lopping off heads, hands, and other body parts, no more child rape, no more skinning captives alive?  Truly?  We shall see).
  68. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Iran’s ‘Israel Doomsday Clock,’ the countdown to Armageddon and the annihilation of the world’s sole Jewish state went dark when Tehran ran out of power.  What a bunch of losers.  In other foreign/overseas news, Beijing stooges arrest nine pro-democracy Hong Kongese over ‘possible terrorist activities’ meaning they stand for FREEDOM.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Rep. Diana Harshbarger, R-TN 1st CD, says it is imperative that we pull our supply chains home from communist China.  Amen.  In other Chi-Com-related news, New Zealand Chi-Com specialist professor Anne-Marie Brady of the University of Canterbury was booted from Twitter after lampooning Chi-Com Xi Jinping.  Wow.  That’s all that is required to get the boot is to make fun of the communist dingleberry?  Whoa.  (You know, if the Chi-Coms want to drop a couple million on us, we’ll say cordial things about the dictator).
  69. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Israel and South Korea plan to swap 700,000 Chi-Vi vaccines.  Meanwhile, the CDC is appealing “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ lifting of the lockdowns on cruise ships which are already out at sea.  CDC, f**k off.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden is unhappy that his promised rate of vaccinations for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu is way down so he is making proposals such as sending people door to door to remind people to get their shots just as he is seeking to have lab techs on job sites dishing out injections as well as paid days off so people will get their vaccinations.  (Note- no one in my family or any of our employees will be getting a ‘jab,’ not until the vaccines are cleared for GENERAL USE and the manufacturers are stripped of qualified immunity so if- God forbid- someone in our family or on our staff has a problem, we can sue them.  -Chef Bea O’Malley).
  70. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Eric Adams has finally been declared the winner of the contested New York City Democratic Party primary race.  They were trying to steal the election from him so they could bestow it on crazed, cop-hating Maya Wiley.  Congratulations, Mr. Adams.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump calls on swing states to enact REAL ELECTION REFORM.  Every state and territory must do this so we can maintain free elections.  Period.
  71. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden News I– A new poll says that a whopping 57-percent (32-percent of Democrats, 84-percent Republicans) do not believe that slobbering Joe Biden is running the show.  (Note- you can add me to that number and Earl Tiberius, too- we think Xi Jinping is running the show and the enfeebled Joe Biden is dancing to his jig).
  72. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News I– Rep. Jackie “The Jackass” Speier, DS-CA 14th CD, is urging her boss, senile old Joe Biden to respond in a timely manner to the Russian and Chi-Com cyberattacks.  Old Joe acts as though he has no clue as to what century it is in which, the old coot lives.  Speaking of cyberattacks, it would appear that the Russkies have breached the RNC.  Elsewhere, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah Jones has ‘withdrawn’ her quest for tenure at the University of North Carolina (because UNC did not offer it) and instead is going to take her ludicrous 1619 Project to Howard University.
  73. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News II– We learn today that the possible shooter of Ashli Babbitt on January 06, 2021, in the U.S. Capitol is Capitol Hill Police Lt. Michael Byrd.  Attorney Terrell Roberts in a Fox interview last month alluded to the fact that this officer- IF he is the actual killer of Ms. Babbitt- is the same cop who left his loaded firearm in a public restroom on Capitol Hill back in 2019.  Other sources such as Capitol Hill Sergeant at Arms Timothy Blodgett confirmed this in separate testimony as to what happened that day.  Apparently, Lt. Byrd has issues with keeping track of his firearm and now- if he is confirmed to be the shooter- has no trouble with stepping forward and shooting an unarmed woman climbing through a window.  She was given NO warning but was just shot dead.  Many believe that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered that a certain amount of violence had to occur during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION and that Ms. Babbitt- for whatever reason- was the one culled from the herd and shot.  We await confirmation of this terrible tragedy and also wait for the officer to undergo charging.
  74. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Apparently, the White House is holding ‘informal talks’ with non-governmental Republicans (?) to see if he can somehow get his crackpot Green New Deal ‘infrastructure plan’ pushed through to completion.  Still, a ‘bipartisan’ group in the House is backing a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package.  Speaking of this BS package, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell promises a ‘hell of a fight’ over the infrastructure package.
  75. 2021 Tuesday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– This morning, POS attorney Michael Avenatti launched a request for a new trial regarding his conviction in the Nike extortion case the government prosecuted against him with success.  He says that evidence was withheld by federal prosecutors so as to get a conviction.  Unfortunately for Mr. Avenatti, his request was DENIED.   Meanwhile, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer is not expected back anytime soon seeing as how he stands accused of sexual assault.  In other news, reports continue hitting the news cycle showing that Trump supporters being held in the D.C. slammer for their part in the January 06, 2021, FALSE FLAG operation put in motion by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD are being physically assaulted, abused, and mistreated by their jailers.  They are subjected to the kinds of punishments one might find in a Beijing slammer.  This is un-American, criminal, immoral, and flat-out wrong.  Finally, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Bouldin says that anyone concerned about rising crime is…wait for it…a WHITE SUPREMACIST.  Wow.[xviii]
  76. 2021 Tuesday Q: NASA, Space, and UFO News– A new Pew Poll says that 65-percent of Americans believe that aliens exist (and why would they not?  IF anything, bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae, and other parasites exist across the entire Universe which is why diseases like the Black Death, Ebola virus, and HIV-AIDS show up unannounced.
  77. 2021 Tuesday R: Sports News I– ESPN has benched sidelines reporter Rachel Nichols from the NBA Finals beginning tonight because of a tweet that just so happened to pop up from 2020 in which Nichols said the only reason why Maria Taylor was chosen over her to cover last year’s finals was because of her skin color.  Whoa.  Not good.  Anyhow, tonight is Game 1 between the Milwaukee Bucks (46-26) at the Phoenix Suns (51-21).  The Suns take Game 1 by a score of 118 to 105.
  78. 2021 Tuesday S: Observation of the Day– Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend and in Joe Biden’s America, more than 500 people were shot, 233 killed, and 618 wounded.  This is Joe Biden’s America, NOT Donald J. Trump’s America, and it’s not white supremacists killing black folks, it’s black folks murdering black folks, and no one seems to care.  ET and I can pray 24/7/365 and until the morons and halfwits realize that LAW AND ORDER MUST BE MAINTAINED, SUPPORTED, AND CELEBRATED, the carnage is going to continue.  Earl Tiberius and I have our guns, we go to the range, we make our own bullets, we do what we must do to protect our business, our family, and our friends.  Joe Biden- you must leave office NOW.  – Chef Bea O’Malley.
  79. 2021 Tuesday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1674 with an $82 million jackpot up for grabs: 18, 47, 63, 68, 69, and Mega 14.  Out of 50,752 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $27,444.
  80. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill- let’s see what the Chi-Coms are up to today…shall we?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Brian Wilson was a collaborative effort with lyricist and songwriter Van Dyke Parks, a friend and colleague with whom Brian Wilson created some of the greatest Beach Boys material in the late 1960s-early 1970s.  “Orange Crate Art” came out on October 24, 1995, and features tunes- mostly written by Parks- with Brian Wilson contributing the bulk of the vocals.  Other musicians joined in the effort which makes it a glorious endeavor indeed, a meeting of the minds, so to speak.  Back in the day, the other Beach Boys bitched and moaned about the lyrics, believing them to be ‘too out there’ for a group who loved surfing, hotrods, motorbikes, and enjoying the company of hot beach chicks.  We don’t give a flying hoot about the complexity of the lyrics; they were what made the Beach Boys most creative period what it was.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.
