Gavin Newsom?  Colleagues up in Washington state report 15,462 confirmed cases what with confirmed deaths at 841 and- like California- NO recovery confirmation numbers.  Gov. Jay Inslee, what are YOU hiding (asks Chef Vladimir?)

FF. 1954 Monday: Fighting continues at Dien Bien Phu. At Isabelle, French Foreign Legionnaires send out combat patrols to clear communist approach trenches ringing them on all sides. Fighting is fierce in the style of World War I with hand grenades, knives, rifle butts, and brass knuckles. Once again, the communists are driven away, the Foreign Legionnaires bring in captured weapons to augment what they have left. In the main camp, officers are going through the hospital seeking anyone who can load or fire a weapon to return to duty in defense of the camp. The walking wounded pick up arms and head back to the fight. It is US or it is THEM and when it comes to communists, the only good communists are dead communists.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Before there was Badfinger, there was the Iveys, a band that formed in Swansea, Wales, and became the first outside band signed to the Beatles’ Apple label.  The group consisted of Pete Ham (lead and backing vocals, lead guitar, and keyboards), Tom Evans (lead and backing vocals, rhythm guitar), Ron Griffiths (bass guitar, lead and backing vocals), and Mike Gibbins (drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals).  The group’s first album, “Maybe Tomorrow,” came out on July 04, 1969, and was slated to be issued worldwide; however, for some still unknown reason, it only hit record stores in Japan, West Germany, and Italy which would make this album an expensive collector’s choice once they changed their name from the Iveys to Badfinger and became a massive global phenomenon.  We wholly recommend this album as it’s one for the history books, the start of something amazing as well as extremely tragic which is why we recommend it with as much vigor as we possibly can.   At Amazon.com, you can get the CD for about $20 while on vinyl, it goes for around $200.00.  Seek it out and give it a listen- enjoy.

  59. 2018 Sunday: The Philadelphia Eagles won Super Bowl LII by pounding the New England Patriots, 41-33.  It was a great game and although Tom Brady played well, one could tell he was feeling his age.  It was the first Super Bowl victory for the Eagles and they did it with backup quarterback Nick Foles.  Congratulations, Philly!  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson suggests the United States ‘could employ force in a coup attempt against the Maduro regime in Venezuela.’
  60. 2019 Monday: As things go from bad to worse in Venezuela, several European countries- namely Germany, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom- recognize opposition leader Juan Guiado as the interim leader of the devastated country.  This of course does not sit well with former bus driver and current president Nicolas Maduro.   Meanwhile, Virginia Governor Ralph “Blackface” Northam, Democrat, delays his decision on whether he will step down from office as he is still not sure if the picture in his college yearbook depicting him as either a member of the KKK or dressed in blackface is ‘really him.’  Come on, bigot, leave office NOW.
  61. 2020 Tuesday: Once again Democrats demonstrate they cannot steal an election properly.  Last night was the Iowa caucuses- ‘first in the nation’ (WHY?)- and the results have not yet been made available to the public.  Millions of Americans speculate that Joe Biden came in 4th or 5th and that either communist Bernie Sanders or Podunk town Mayor Pete came in at the top.  Therefore, Troy Price- chair of the IA Democratic Party- is doing everything possible to find more caucus results from outhouses and condemned buildings to flip the votes to CHOMO Joe Biden.  Disaster strikes again.  And the Democrats claim Donald Trump and the Republicans stole an election!  WTF!  Then, some results trickled out that showed Mayor Pete (26.9%) first followed by Sanders (25.1%) followed by Liz Warren (18.3%) followed by Joe Biden (15.6%) followed by Amy Klobuchar (12.6%).  The political dead were Andrew Yang (1.0%), Tom Steyer (less than 1%), Uncommitted (less than 1%), Michael Bloomberg (less than 1%) and Tulsi Gabbard (less than 1%).
  62. 2020 Tuesday A: COVID-19 continues raging around the world.  The Princess Cruise Lines Diamond Princess finds itself in Yokohama Bay, Japan, in quarantine with all its passengers onboard.  They cannot get off, they cannot leave, NO one will have them as they have Chi-Vi-infected people on the ship.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms announce the death toll has surpassed 400 victims and more than 20,000 ill people yet asks the United States ‘not to overreact’ as the U.S. seeks access to information.  Elsewhere, Hong Kong reports its first COVID-19 death making it the second person outside the PRC to succumb from the growing pandemic.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump delivers his third State of the Union Address and when he’s wrapping it up, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi takes his speech and rips it to shreds in front of the entire world.  Wow.  Boot this hag from the people’s house, please.  
  63. 2021 Thursday: The proponents of continuous war- aka the military-industrial-politico complex- seek to keep U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan despite threats from the Taliban as to what might happen to them if they halt the withdrawal.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden has put a freeze on troop withdrawals from Germany and their redeployment elsewhere, something the previous president sought due to Germany closely tying itself to Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has ordered a military-wide standdown so the military can root through all its WHITE members seeking to uncover racism, bigotry, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, and whatever else is the ‘in’ thing at the moment.  It will accomplish this by going through all social media posts of its white servicemembers.  Although they are saying they are exclusively singling out whites, we know that they are.  Such is the modern-day United States of America.   Speaking of all this latent racism and bigotry among white people, what does Joe Biden do at the prayer breakfast?  He calls out ‘political’ extremism meaning ‘white supremacism,’ something that NO longer exists.  What a world in which, we live…
  64. 2021 Thursday A: California Governor Gavin Newsom, Democrat, is holding off on naming a replacement to fill outgoing AG Xavier Becerra until after he’s been confirmed as the next secretary of Health and Human Services.  There is a possibility he won’t because he is such a whacked-out, far-left nut that he might not make it although in this time, it appears the ‘crazier the better.’  Meanwhile, Politico reports that the recall of Governor Newsom now is ‘unavoidable’ seeing as how he has few if any remaining supporters.  He has proven to be a greater disaster than Governor Gray Davis ever was, another Democrat who was recalled about 16 years ago.
  65. 2021 Thursday B: The U.S. Chamber of Commerce urges- implores- Joe Biden to compromise on the COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill as the 46th president considers bypassing the GOP.  Meanwhile, in a nod to Joe Biden, the U.S. Supreme Court announces it will NOT hear oral arguments in Trump-related immigration cases.  Next, union officials from the state of Alabama are meeting with the 46th president to discuss the ongoing case of unionizing the Amazon.com fulfillment center in the state.  Amazon is resisting its employees demands for union protections while labor leaders are determined to force the online retail giant to buckle under to their demands.
  66. 2021 Thursday C: Kamran Abbasi- editor of the British Medical Journal- has accused world governments of ‘social murder’ over their mishandling of the Chinese Virus Crisis.  Regarding the Chi-Com Virus, the CDC says, “Inoculating teachers is not necessary to reopen schools” yet public schools remain closed while private schools are up and running.  Speaking of schools, San Francisco Mayor London Breed and the San Francisco School District is at war with one another as the mayor demands they reopen the schools while the school unions tell her to go f**k herself.  We say someone must be brave like Ronald Reagan was with the air traffic controllers, give them an ultimatum to open or get fired and then when they won’t reopen, fire the entire flipping lot of these scurrilous scumbags.  It is the ONLY thing to do.
  67. 2021 Thursday D: Following the House GOP vote to keep censured Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney in her leadership post, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy calls for ‘UNITY’ while forcing Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene to apologize for ALL her statements prior to becoming a member of Congress.  Our California colleagues inform us that they will NO longer vote for Congressman McCarthy, even if it means Democrats take his seat.  Enough is enough is what they say.  Speaking of Congresswoman Greene, she can no longer serve on any committees.  After all, upstanding Illinois RINO Adam Kinzinger says ‘Greene cannot serve unless she proves she is ‘contrite’ for her past actions.  Speaking of political corruption and the like, New York state lawmakers are fighting to block Attorney General Leticia James investigation into all the deaths Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has caused and tried to coverup.  Wow.
  68. 20201 Thursday E:  Recently appointed to a three-year term on the Council of the Administration Conference of the United States, Trump appointee Roger Severino- asked on Wednesday to resign or be fired by the 46th president- has filed a lawsuit against ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for wrongful termination.  Good.  People must fight back against fascism wherever they find it.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ the 46th president is considering sending every American (Chi-Com-manufactured) face masks so as to fight the Wuhan Bat Flu running amok around the world.  Sadly, like most masks, they will end up blowing across the streets and highways of the country, collecting along fence lines, in gutters, and everywhere else as do billions of plastic bags.   Most people are not going to wear this crap, Joe, so please, don’t waste taxpayer dollars on Chi-Com facemasks.   Speaking of Mr. Biden, son, Hunter’s ‘memoirs’ are coming out in April, entitled, “How I raked in Billions while smoking Crack and banging Prepubescent Girls.”  We’re really looking forward to this book!  (We don’t know what the title really is but wouldn’t it be great if this were the title?)
  69. 2021 Thursday F: With the Biden COVID-19 Relief/Stimulus bill coming soon to a town near you, several Kroger stores in California are already closing down as they cannot afford the increased minimum wage to $15 per hour that is included within it.  Hell, NO one can so expect millions of other stores to call it quits over the course of the year and the OMB claims everything will be peachy-keen by mid-year.  What a load of crap.  Meanwhile, there was an 80-percent jump in gun sales in January 2021.  Heck, several of our members went out and beefed up their gun collections while some of our California members put them into secure sites while informing law enforcement they were missing.  NO one is going to hand over firearms.   Speaking of weapons, U.S. Envoy to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, Robert Wood says the ‘Biden administration is going to pursue arms control and engagement with the Chi-Coms.’  Woo-oo!  Next, famed attorney Lin Wood is now under investigation for VOTER FRAUD.  Finally, famed Watergate plumber Eugenio Martinez has died at the age of 98.
  70. 2021 Thursday G: In the House of Representatives, Marjorie Taylor Greene has been removed by a party line vote from her two major committee assignments- Education & Labor and Budget.  Democrats are exuberant and Republicans silent.  What they are doing is making Greene bigger than before which is what the Dems are also doing to former President Donald J. Trump by demanding he appear at the ‘re-impeachment trial’ next week and testifying under oath.   Although the Democrats do not believe this, they are going to be punished by voters more ways than one because even if H.R. 1 becomes law, Republicans are already converting legions of illegal aliens to vote GOP in next year’s mid-terms.  Two can play the same game, folks.
  71. 2021 Thursday H: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 104,684,395 confirmed cases, +435,785, 2,277,590, confirmed deaths, +13,798, and 58,164,975 confirmed recoveries, +271,687.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,791,783 confirmed cases, up 60,966 from yesterday’s reporting, 454,392 confirmed deaths, UP 1,365, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as last week’s.  NOTE- in the White House 16 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 49,580 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  72. 2021 Thursday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,366,597 confirmed cases, 42,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,187 confirmed cases, 416 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 319,502 confirmed cases, 4,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- New York: currently, thanks to Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, they have 1,444,199 confirmed cases, 43,687 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 668,874 confirmed cases, 4,948 confirmed deaths, and 589,311 confirmed recoveries.    For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Russia: currently, they have 3,917,918 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 75,205 confirmed deaths, and 3,389,913 confirmed recoveries.   In other Chinese Virus news, Johnson & Johnson is seeking the FDA to give their one-shot Wuhan Flu vaccine the go-ahead necessary with which to start getting it into the arms of the American people.
  73. 2021 Thursday J:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,055.86, UP 332.26 points (+1.08%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,777.74, UP 167.20 points (+1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,871.74, UP 41.57 points (+1.09%).  The price of GOLD is $1,796.40 per troy oz., +5.20 (+0.29%) while the price of SILVER is $26.43 per troy ounce, +0.20 (+0.75%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,107.20 per troy oz, +0.04 (+0.36%) while the price of COPPER is $3.56 per pound, +0.01 (+0.18%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,280.70 per troy oz, +4.10 (+0.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $56.59 per barrel, +0.36 (+0.64%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.37.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000027 Bitcoin (BTC).  In other economic news, Shell Oil’s profits have slumped to their lowest level in 20 years.  Thank you, Joe Biden.
  74. 2021 Thursday K: The Jeffrey Epstein fund for victims has abruptly halted its payouts.  No one is sure as to WHY?  Meanwhile, as the truth continues coming about Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, aka Baby Evita, birth name Sandy Cortez, and her ‘terrifying moments in the Capitol Complex on January 6, when Antifa-led mobs stormed the Capitol Building, we learn she was not even present.  She was nowhere near the action so as the truth continues coming out, she has been yanking down tweets and videos so as not to embarrass herself.  Girl- you are already embarrassed.  Elsewhere, the attorneys for Donald Trump says he WON’T answer a demand from his inquisitors to show up for next week’s SHOW TRIAL in the U.S. Senate.  Speaking of President Trump, he resigned from the Screen Actors Guild today.  Why should he?  It’s a kangaroo court.  Finally, state legislators are going to town on Governor Tony Evers’ MASK MANDATE.  No one is going to wear this crap.  It’s over and done.
  75. 2021 Thursday L:   The U.S. Border Patrol is reporting its agents are being overrun by tens of thousands of illegal aliens.  Mexican states along the border with the U.S. no longer are accepting returns of illegal aliens so the illegals are ‘caught’ and then ‘released’ into the interior of the United States.  Without Donald Trump in the White House, Democrats plans of social re-engineering the United States into a Third World S-hole country are underway.  Meanwhile, a report says that during the four years Donald Trump spent in the White House, he lost half his net worth.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden threatens to amp up restrictions on the Russians if they fail to free Alexei Navalny.  Russia responds with ‘bug off.’   Finally, following Congressman Matt Gaetz asking House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, D-NY, to recite the Pledge of Allegiance ahead of every meeting, Nadler tells his GOP colleague, more or less, to ‘bug off’ like the Russians told Joe Biden on Navalny.  Wow.  Patriotism (or lack of it on the part of the Democrats).
  76. 2021 Thursday M: We learned that someone has made off with 10# of C-4 plastic explosive from a USMC base in California, most likely Camp Pendleton.  NOT good.  Meanwhile, a federal judge in Oregon says it’s ‘okay’ for state officials to provide COVID-19 immunizations to prisoners in the state’s hoosegows.  They will receive their immunizations before senior citizens and school teachers.  There you go.  Next, Joe Biden revives the old stories of being ‘shot at while overseas’ in much the same way Hillary Clinton used to tell similar stories.  It’s all bogus but it makes for good tall tales told around campfires late at night.  Elsewhere, freshman Republican Congressman Madison Cawthorne says he has ‘no regrets’ about speaking at the Stop the Steal Rally in Washington, D.C., on January 6, the day of the Antifa-led storming of the Capitol Building. 
  77. 2021 Thursday N: Speaking of the Stop the Steal Rally on January 6, Tucker Carlson reported something extremely disturbing tonight on his show on Fox News Channel.  He reported that Bank of America is actively investigating charges made by its customers between January 5-7, 2021 in and around Washington, D.C., in the hope of locating ‘Pro-Trump extremists and white supremacists’ so it can then hand the over to federal law enforcement.  IF you were in D.C. on those dates and bought a donut and a coffee, BOA handed that information over to the feds who have already knocked on doors and questioned people.  Wow.  Is this the bank with which you want to do business?  Not us, we are closing our accounts as quickly as we can.  Meanwhile, returning to the story mentioned first above in “L,” the Border Patrol reports that it has arrested 11 Iranians attempting to cross the border into the United States from Mexico.  NOT GOOD. 
  78. 2021 Thursday O: First-time unemployment claims have fallen the third straight week in a row, down to 779,000 jobless claims for a total of 17.8 million Americans on government assistance.  However, as soon as the minimum wage rises to $15 per hour, we expect there will be 1.5 million jobless claims in the first week with 750,000 to one million per week after that.  Add to that the numbers of illegal aliens now being permitted into the country and we expect by late March-early April to see an economic depression rivaling that of 1929.  Secure your wealth, hide your funds, bad times are coming.  There is no way the TRIPLE THREAT of (1) a higher minimum wage combined with (2) the ongoing COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions plus (3) a sudden vast pool of low-skilled to unskilled labor is going to cause what the OMB says is going to be a massive economic recovery by June 2021.  We haven’t even included skyrocketing energy costs thanks to the cessation of fracking on federal lands yet.  It’s going to be BAD.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden will no longer provide support to the Saudi-led war in neighboring Yemen in the fight against Iran and their proxies, the Houthi rebels.  Yet another pro-Iranian policy.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On April 12, 1985, UFO released a two-LP album, “The Collection,” an album that contained many of the earlier cuts, the crème de la crème of the British rock band that was always on the verge of becoming a mega band but never quite hit the BIG TIME like the Stones, the Kinks, the Who, Led Zeppelin, and the sadly short-lived Faces.  We know you will enjoy this audio gem; this mind-altering album so why not seek it out.  If you cannot find it at Amazon.com, you can always visit Discogs and find it there.  You will enjoy it, we guarantee it.

  55. 2019 Thursday: The Trump administration recognizes Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the legitimate president of that troubled South American country.  This of course drives the Venezuelans amok as they fight to quell ongoing civil disturbances over their attempted-fixed presidential elections.  Canada, European and other Western nations recognize the opposition leader as the rightful winner whereas the totalitarian states around the globe don’t.  Elsewhere, competing funding bills in the U.S. Senate fail as everyone expected they would.  Meanwhile, House Democrats dangle the fraudulent fishhook of $5.7 billion for a VIRTUAL border wall meaning drones will hover ahigh watching millions of illegals as they swarm across the border.
  56. 2020 Friday: Iraqis continue marching through Baghdad and other cities in the country protesting the presence of U.S. troops on their soil following the droning of Quds Force commander General Qassim Soleimani on New Year’s Day.  The U.S. is unmoved but Iranian agents are causing trouble on the ground, seeking the people to rise up and to throw the Americans out of their country.  Elsewhere, following Iran’s floating of ‘opening a dialogue with its neighbors,’ the government of Saudi Arabia tells them to stop attacking oil facilities and oil tankers in the Gulf.  No reply.
  57. 2021 Sunday: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 99,006,885 confirmed cases, +718,738, 2,125,373, confirmed deaths, +15,615, and 54,608,134 confirmed recoveries, +352,720.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,227,940 confirmed cases, up 118,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 421,330 confirmed deaths, UP 2,272, and 10,987,457 confirmed recoveries, UP 13,290.  IF that leaning tower of drool, ‘President’ Joe Biden is going to save the country, he needs to save it NOW, ASAP, by getting the Trump vaccine to the people and ordering an immediate reopening of ALL businesses.
  58. 2021 Sunday A: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,163,830 confirmed cases, 36,816 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases (Hawaii has not updated their case numbers in more than a week), 336 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 304,107 confirmed cases, 4,182 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Wyoming: currently, they have 50,898 confirmed cases, 571 confirmed deaths, and 48,571 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 593,961 confirmed cases, 4,341 confirmed deaths, and 512,702 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Texas rolls out 100,000 Chi-Vi vaccine doses in a single day making BLUE states look like the losers they are.  Speaking of Blue States, Governor Gavin Newsom of California is being ripped apart for buying PPE from the Chi-Coms directly instead of American manufacturers.  Once again, is another direct tie between Democrats and their Chi-Com masters in Beijing.
  59. 2021 Sunday B: We learn today that Instagram is FORCING ALL USERS to ‘sign up’ for the White House account to make it look like ‘President’ Joe Biden- the usurper in chief- has a massive following when in fact, he has NO one.  Hence why many chef-authors and support staff at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have shuttered their Instagram accounts among other pro-Chi-Com social media sites.  F**k them.  Speaking of scurrilous social media scumbags, Facebook closes Young Patriots accounts.  We already dumped Facebook and it’s amazing how much they cried when they did.  We guess they enjoy exercising the power and determining whether one is ‘permitted’ on their site or is not.  F**k them, too.
  60. 2021 Sunday C: Today we have both NFL Championship games- first, the NFC Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 30 (13-5) @ Green Bay Packers, 32 (14-3) and then the AFC Championship- Buffalo Bills, 17 (15-3) @ Kansas City Chiefs, 22 (15-2).  Out of 25 chef-authors here at the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day, aka AICPENDBLOG.COM, 17 say it’s going to be a ‘State Farm Super Bowl’ between Green Bay and Aaron Rodgers and Kansas City and Patrick Mahomes while the others don’t.  We shall see.   Results for the first game: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31, Green Bay Packers, 26. NO STATE FARM SUPER BOWL this time around.  Eight of our colleagues are at 50-percent in their picks.  We shall see, again. Here are the results for the second matchup and we must say, it was a brutal game.  Some of the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line behaved like Capitol Hill police officers did on January 06, stepping aside and almost waving the Chiefs in to sack or to commit some questionable hits on Josh Allen, QB of the Bills. Final score: Chiefs, 38, Bills 24.  Next week, the Pro-Bowl then on February 07, 2021- Kansas City Chiefs @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers for Super Bowl LV.
  61. 2021 Sunday D: The Michigan GOP censures Rep. Fred Upton, one of theirs who voted for impeachment in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Payback is coming to all these losers.  Likewise, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey says he’s dropping a planned U.S. Senate run in 2022 because the Arizona GOP has censured him for handing the 2020 Presidential Election over to the Democrats and their standard-bearer, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden. Next, Arizona GOP leader Dr. Kelli Ward wins re-election as the chair of the GOP in that state for another two years.  Speaking of the U.S. Senate and of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton says, ‘the Chi-Coms are blackmailing the ‘46th president’ with sanctions.   Elsewhere, the FBI rescues 33 kidnapped children from human traffickers and predators in the L.A. area.  God bless you!
  62. 2021 Sunday E: Chef Lilah in Hawaii says the Hawaii GOP is receiving loads of criticism over the party saying that “Q supporters” in Washington, D.C., are patriots, believing in what they believe.  She says, ‘that in every so-called conspiracy theory, an element of truth exists as otherwise it would not gain strength.’  She also says, ‘that Democrats are desperate to deflect blame from their leadership in the House telling Capitol Hill police officers to step aside and allow the Antifa-interlaced protesters easy entry into the Capitol Building on January 6.’  Look, Nancy Pelosi is out there accusing President Donald J. Trump of homicide for the people who lost their lives in the left-wing mob riots when she is the one who should shut up and lawyer up.  When the truth hits, no one will acquit Speaker Pelosi.  Finally, Chef Lilah says, ‘as for QAnon, why wouldn’t people believe this when they live in a country where millions of their fellow citizens- particularly minorities- have been aborted, a country in which fetal body parts are harvested and sold, a country in which, perversion, sexual deviancy, engineered racism, and the elimination of history, both good and bad, is at risk of being destroyed?’  No, she concludes by saying, ‘QAnon is not difficult to believe; no, it’s difficult to disbelieve when one closely examines what the left is doing to our country and why, the damage being caused, none of which is moral or Christian.’  God bless you, Chef Lilly!

  62. 2021 Tuesday E: ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe” Biden’s pick to head the OMB- Neera Tanden- reaped more than $700,000 working for a nonprofit.  Looks like Old Joe is going with financial fraudsters like him and his family.  Uh-oh.  Elsewhere, Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden must speak out against impeachment’ because it is a divisive issue.  Hot upon its heels, a McLaughlin poll says, ‘most Americans are opposed to another impeachment of the 45th president, especially when he will be leaving office in EIGHT days.  Meanwhile, Jared Kushner is briefing ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s incoming National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.  Finally, President Trump recognizes that talk of impeachment is dividing the country and once again urges PEACE for his followers while also saying that BIG TECH is dividing the United States.’
  63. 2021 Tuesday F: Regarding the aftermath of the Capitol Hill Antifa-led riots last week, AT&T becomes yet another big corporation halting donations to ALL GOP congressmen-and-women who voted against the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  Next, the CEO of Parler- John Matze- says he’s getting numerous death threats over his stand for First Amendment rights.   Meanwhile, after calling for ALL GOP members to be placed onto the NO-FLY list, House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Bennie G. Thompson, D-Mississippi, continues demanding for GOP Senators Josh Hawley, Missouri, and Ted Cruz, Texas, to be put on the NO-FLY list.  WTF, Congressman Thompson?  Elsewhere, Rep. Pat Fallon, R-TX, says that what is going on is ‘liberals gone wild.’ 
  64. 2021 Tuesday G: Derek Chauvin- the officer who kept his knee on the neck of George Floyd- will be tried separately from his three fellow Minneapolis Police Department officers.  Next, the FBI says it is investigating more than 170 separate cases related to last week’s Antifa-sponsored riots on Capitol Hill.  At the same time, we learn that a new plot to surround the Capitol has been foiled.   As if this isn’t bad enough, we receive warnings from the FBI of ‘armed protests in all 50 states are coming’ which sounds frightening but we remember back in 2016 post the election and into 2017, there were anti-Trump protests from one end of the country to the other and we do not recall the FBI being terrified back then.  All we want is a little consistency!  Elsewhere, a federal judge halts the execution of the only woman on federal death row.  If Lisa Montgomery does undergo execution, she would become the first female in 67 years to undergo execution at the federal site in Terre Haute, Indiana.
  65. 2021 Tuesday H: The NHL says in playing for its fans, it’s going to lose billions of dollars unless things open up and soon.  Elsewhere, the Catholic League blasts the American Civil Liberties Union’s attacks on President Donald J. Trump’s First Amendment rights to free speech.  Meanwhile, CIA documents on UFOs have been compiled by a researcher and are awaiting release.  Finally, the Democrats are now looking into the 14th Amendment to find some way with which, they can drive President Trump from office before he’s scheduled to leave office a week from tomorrow.  What a bunch of maggots.
  66. 2021 Tuesday I: The U.S. Department of Justice is probing ‘sedition conspiracies’  (they’re acting like this is somehow resembling the Civil War) surrounding the Capitol Hill 2021 storming last Wednesday, saying that somehow it is something we have never seen before.  Folks, we were alive, well, and observant in the 1960s and the 1970s (and way before) and we remember the antiwar protests of those two decades.  We also remember Puerto Rican communists attacking the Capitol, it’s as though modern historians overlook the past, especially when LEFTISTS were the ones blowing things up, murdering police officers, threatening judges, and even members of Congress.  They must wake up and stop with the flipping propaganda already.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, Apple CEO calls ‘for accountability’ for the Capitol Hill, Antifa-led riots of last week.  Sadly, Walmart announces it’s going to HALT donations to Republicans who stood against the certification of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden.  Wow.
  67. 2021 Tuesday J: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 91,383,544 confirmed cases, +658,733, 1,956,752, confirmed deaths, +15,609, and 50,537,895 confirmed recoveries, +370,814.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 22,797,730 confirmed cases, up 89,725 from yesterday’s reporting, 379,020 confirmed deaths, UP 450, and 9,915,571 confirmed recoveries, UP 14,936.
  68. 2021 Tuesday K: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,785,701 confirmed cases, 30,561 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 309 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 281,210 confirmed cases, 3,793 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Connecticut: currently, they have 217,047 confirmed cases, 6,449 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 501,073 confirmed cases, 3,704 confirmed deaths, and 425,006 confirmed recoveries. 
  69. 2021 Tuesday L:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,068.69, UP 60.00 points (+0.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,072.43, UP 36.00 points (+0.28%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,801.19, UP 1.58 points (+0.42%).  The price of GOLD is $1,855.80 per troy oz., +11.60 (+0.63%) while the price of SILVER is $25.66 per troy ounce, +0.225 (+0.88%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,078.70 per troy oz, +10.90 (+1.02%) while the price of COPPER is $3.64 per pound, +0.03 (+0.83%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,376.20 per troy oz, -2.60 (-0.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $53.33 per barrel, +0.12 (+0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.78.
  70. 2021 Tuesday M: Humorous note for the day:  as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was crossing the street, hecklers barraged him with invective, calling him “Adolf Hitler.”  Now that’s funnier than s**t.  Meanwhile, U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Thomas Donahue lashes out at President Trump like other losers by trying to say that the president’s words last Wednesday are what set in motion an event- the Capitol Hill riots- that was prearranged to coincide with Antifa members storming the building.  We now know that several Capitol Hill police officers are facing questions as to WHY they pulled barricades aside and waved the angry left-wing mob into the building.  Elsewhere, the manager for actor Chuck Norris says ‘his client was not present at Capitol Hill last week.’  Finally, a ‘civil rights group’ demands Google remove Donald Trump’s YouTube channel.  Wow.
  71. 2021 Tuesday N: Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1624: 12, 14, 26, 28, 33, and Mega 09.  Out of 527,357 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $926,572.  The winning ticket was sold at La Paz Liquor in Burbank, CA, 91505.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The quartet of UFO- Phil Mogg (vocals), Mick Bolton (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Andy Parker (drums and percussion)- returned to the studio after touring as an opening act and released “UFO 2: Flying” on October 17, 1971.  Once again, the band’s sophomore effort was exceptional and once again did not achieve massive notice around the world even though their tunes were evolving into more unique and powerful songs.  The title track is perhaps the longest song in rock history up to that date and is a joy to behold.  We hope you will seek this album out wherever you shop for nothing but the best in music and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  You will be glad you did…

Trump picks Breitbart’s Steve Bannon to serve as his chief political strategist.  Meanwhile, the president-elect sits down with 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl and mentions that he may ‘deport up to 3 million people.’  We expect him to deport about 10-15 million illegal aliens.

  61. 2020 Friday D: White House trade adviser Peter Navarro says the team is moving ahead with agenda for a second Trump term.  Meanwhile, down in Georgia, the two scumbags who chased down and murdered (allegedly) Ahmaud Arbery will remain in prison due to a judge denying them bail.  The governors of California, Oregon, and Washington issue travel advisories to anyone entering the state of the holidays must quarantine for 14 days or face legal problems which could include confinement.  The governors have already laid out punitive restrictions on holiday gatherings that are so draconian, we expect citizens of the states are going to rebel.  NOTE – to Gov. Gavin Newsom from the AICPENDBLOG.COM: F**K YOU!        
  62. 2020 Friday E: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Drawing #1607 with a $165 million jackpot at stake.  Here are the numbers: 06, 07, 14, 28, 59, and Mega 07.  The highest winners were two people who had four numbers plus the Mega number for $9,045 apiece.  Congratulations

At some point, all good things begin coming to an end and due to creative differences between vocalist Lou Gramm and guitarist Mick Jones, the vocalist became the first member of Foreigner to put out his own solo album, “Ready or Not,” on January 19, 1987.  This album contained some classic tunes that got radio airplay such as “Midnight Blue,” and “Ready or Not.”  This should have fired a massive salvo across the bow of Mick Jones’ flagship because if Foreigner were to lose Gramm, things would never be the same other than on the touring circuit.  Joining Gramm (vocals/production) were Bruce Turgon (guitars/bass/keyboards), Nils Lofgren (lead guitar), Phil Ashley (keyboards), and Ben Gramm (drums/percussion).  If you want to enjoy an amazing album, we hope you will seek this one out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] We began promoting the music of the Troggs on Monday, 06-January-2020 and then Google Blogger slammed the door shut on us.  Go figure.  We hope to return to presenting the music of the greatest bands in the world one day so please, remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[ii] Since this stunning throwback of Democrat cheating, the former Nazi criminal financier George Soros has funded every crackpot far-leftist anti-American secretary of state and district attorney gigs around the country so that he can manipulate and topple elections he does not like.  This man should be delivered to the Hague to stand trial for his World War II-era war crimes.

[iii] If this seems somewhat familiar, it is, Democrats fight to overturn every presidential election they lose.  This is what they do.  Democrats use every crooked means available to them and then some so what we see Democrats doing in 2019 and beyond is the same thing they sought to do to President George W. Bush, prior to him becoming president the first time and again in 2004 when he ran for re-election.  The Democrats tried to produce enough ballots in Ohio and in Florida to throw the election to their candidate, the highly unpopular Sen. John F. Kerry.  There was no way that a clone of Lurch from the Addams Family was ever going to become president without cheating.  Thankfully, he lost.

[iv] Prior to President Donald J. Trump entering office, this was how the U.S. conducted business with foreign adversaries.  Nations sat down and discussed issues, every president prior to President Trump interacted with competitors and adversaries.  For some reason, IF President Trump tries to do the same thing, he is committing treason.  Folks, it would be great if we could work with Russia instead of trying to isolate them as though they remained a Cold War adversary.  China is a far greater danger and we should be doing everything possible to ally with Russia against the communist Chinese.

[v] France has a major problem what with millions of Muslims who want to see the collapse of the French nation and an Islamic hellhole erected in its place.  Enough!  Deport all of the angry Muslims back to their home countries.

[vi] Adam Schiff continues lying that he has never met the ‘whistleblower’ who claims third-or-fourth-hand knowledge of a phone call that President Donald J. Trump had with new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.  By the way, the name of the so-called ‘whistleblower’ is a CIA officer by the name of Eric Ciaramella.  He met with Schiff prior to this fiasco and found himself in trouble on this day as he set up a ‘Go Fund Me’ account for his legal fees which is illegal for someone still in government employ.  What a nest of snakes.

CCC. 2016 Sunday: In the early morning hours, local Muslim jihadist Omar Mateen, 29 years-old opens fire at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, slaying 49 people and wounding another 53 before members of the Orlando Police Department kill the POS.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

#PF001.1o Wish You Were Here #15 04-19-2020 (400)

 

The next album Pink Floyd released- “Wish You Were Here”- came out on September 12, 1975.  This album was the follow up to “Dark Side of the Moon” and lived up to expectations and then some.  The band remained the same: Roger Waters (bass/vocals), David Gilmour (guitars/vocals), Nicky Mason (drums/percussion), and Richard Wright (keyboards/vocals) as well as some supporting musicians to increase the sound and the vocal range.  At the time, reviews were mixed, which is always amazing, but back in those days, rock media somewhat resembled the fake news media of today in that they blistered almost every release by a top band and then some.  Sad thing is this: critics can only criticize while performers perform.  This is one of the all-time great albums of the day which is why we hope everyone will seek it out and add it to their growing collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music.   You will be glad you did.

Last night was the Iowa caucuses- ‘first in the nation’ (WHY?)- and the results have not yet been made available to the public. Millions of Americans speculate that Joe Biden came in 4th or 5th and that either communist Bernie Sanders of Podunk town Mayor Pete came in at the top. Therefore, Troy Price- chair of the IA Democratic Party- is doing everything possible to find more caucus results from outhouses and condemned buildings to flip the votes to CHOMO Joe Biden. Disaster strikes again. And the Democrats claim Donald Trump and the Republicans stole an election! WTF! Then, some results trickled out that showed Mayor Pete (26.9%) first followed by Sanders (25.1%) followed by Liz Warren (18.3%) followed by Joe Biden (15.6%) followed by Amy Klobuchar (12.6%). The political dead were Andrew Yang (1.0%), Tom Steyer (less than 1%), Uncommitted (less than 1%), Michael Bloomberg (less than 1%) and Tulsi Gabbard (less than 1%).
