  48. 2014 Monday: The U.S. Treasury is issuing rules to hinder companies from moving their headquarters outside the country to save on taxes; the rules may affect pending deals, such as Burger King’s plan to move to Canada after merging with Tim Horton’s restaurant chain.  Meanwhile, the United States and five Arab nations launched airstrikes against the Islamic State group- aka Daish- in Syria waves of planes and Tomahawk cruise missiles against an array of targets.

Trump.  Roast in hell, Senator.
  52. 2018 Saturday: At a military parade in Ahvaz, Iran, four gunmen open fire on Revolutionary Guard troops marching past killing at least 25 onlookers in the melee.  They are fighting for freedom in the totalitarian dictatorship of Islamist Iran. 
  53. 2019 Sunday: Following yet another leak in which an unnamed White House military aide- later identified at Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman[iv]– said that ‘Donald Trump spoke with the Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky about investigating “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s son, Hunter[v], and his financial shenanigans in that former Soviet republic,’ President Trump says, ‘Yeah, I did that.’  He explained the phone call, one he identified as ‘perfect’ and which many others did as well, yet the Democrats would use this event as the catalyst for their failed impeachment of the 45th president after the New Year.
  54. 2020 Tuesday: Utah Senator Mitt Romney came out this morning and announced that he would support President Donald J. Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court, the one to replace deceased liberal icon, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, ‘as long as he or she is a strict constructionist.’   Conservatives want NO judicial activism which means they want judges who will APPLY the law rather than to CREATE the law or to look at supreme court rulings in OTHER countries for guidance as many liberals have said they do.  Meanwhile, voters continue demanding that former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden release his list of potential Supreme Court justices, an action he continually opposes.  Everyone believes disgruntled gubernatorial loser Stacey Abrams is at the top of his list.   Regarding the court fight to come, mobs of angry Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and other Marxist trash continue protesting outside the homes of Senate Majority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham.  What a bunch of losers, blow them away with water cannons and reestablish law and order.  Finally, President Trump says he will announce his nominee on Saturday.
  55. 2020 Tuesday A: The city of Louisville, Kentucky, enacts a ‘state of emergency’ as it awaits the decision as to whether or not to charge the officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor with some sort of crime.  As you should recall, law enforcement entered Taylor’s apartment with a NO knock warrant and Taylor’s boyfriend opened fire with a handgun which drew reciprocal fire from the cops, killing Ms. Taylor in the process.  We expect they won’t be charged or fired for simply doing their jobs.  Taylor’s family was the recent recipient of a $12 million settlement.
  56. 2020 Tuesday B: NYPD Police Officer Biamadjie Angwang underwent arrest today on charges of spying for communist China.  Wow.  Almost every day, someone of Chinese extraction or descent is arrested for spying on behalf of China.  One can understand WHY the U.S. government rounded up and interned American Japanese during the early years of World War II.  We had better clean out this nest of Chi-Com snakes AND you DON’T think they commies aren’t colluding with the Democrats?  Please!  Speaking of police matters, Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot, reeling from the destruction of parts of her city which, she gave the green light to, is now going after ALL parking offenders and hammering them with fines.  Tax increases must come from somewhere!
  57. 2020 Tuesday C: A recent PEW Poll says that support for the communist Black Lives Matter movement has plummeted since June, from 67-percent to 55-percent and if you seek the truth, it is much lower than that seeing as how many people tremble in fear at expressing their true feelings.  We believe Black Lives Matter must be eradicated like eradicating venereal disease.  Speaking of mobs, mobs are penetrating the suburbs of New York City and going after citizens.  Keep it up, you ignorant dumb bastards, you continue pushing more and more voters into the Trump camp.
  58. 2020 Tuesday D:  British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announces the rollback of the lifting of restrictions seeing as how cases of the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever-Flu are going back UP.  Thank you, Chi-Coms for infecting the world.  It is time the world returns to the Two-China Policy or better yet, recognize Taiwan as the LEGITIMATE China and the Chi-Coms as the CRIMINAL CHINA.
  59. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 31,444,163 confirmed cases, UP by 262,381 cases, 967,305 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,039 deaths, and 21,551,157 confirmed recoveries, UP by 250,656 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,968,226 confirmed cases, UP by 35,909 new cases, 203,446 confirmed deaths, UP by 464 new deaths, and 3,759,857 confirmed recoveries, UP by 36,282 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans (“Pro-China Joe” Biden says 200,000,000)- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Chi-Com Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  60. 2020 Tuesday F: 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: 793,737 confirmed cases, 15,126 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 11,590 confirmed cases, 120 confirmed deaths, and 4,888 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 86,889 confirmed cases, 2,137 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: 455,938 confirmed number of cases, 32,690 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were. PUT CUOMO ON TRIAL! 
  61. 2020 Tuesday G: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 193,374 confirmed cases, 1,285 confirmed deaths, and 136,780 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for those hidden tunnels the Hamas scum love using to penetrate Israel and kidnap its citizens, Mo!

  63. 2020 Tuesday H: Tucker Carlson continues reporting that questionable billionaires such as George Soros- the former Hungarian Nazi- continues funding as much of the anti-American behavior violent street mobs are committing on behalf of the Democratic Party and their masters in Beijing.  Last night, Mr. Carlson showed film of Soros and today, Carlson announced that other billionaires have rushed to Soros’ aid and that America’s billionaire class is among the real enemies we face as a FREE nation.   Our blogs are personally aware that Google CEO Sundar Pichai- a very wealthy man- allegedly works on behalf of the Chi-Coms and does everything he can to stifle free speech not only in the United States but around the rest of the Free World, too.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vii]   
  65. 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 383,560 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 20,518 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xii]

[xiii]    Let us look at one other Kentucky: $2.963.  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- Iceland: $7.357 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,792,180,393,291 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  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 Singapore, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Saudi Arabia 1 with $180 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 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As everyone continues asking the extremely pertinent question as to WHERE the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is, today is Day No. 180 for this sham ‘vice president’ to be in charge of the absolute calamity befalling the border and Day No. 87 since her sole visit to the border.  “Kooky,” where oh where art thou?  Do you job, skank.  Next, here are the numbers for the CRISIS occurring on the border as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost of caring for the human garbage for just this day: $538,977,792.  Second, here is the cost of caring for these Third World invaders for the year so far: $289,854,095,360.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have swarmed into the U.S. this year: 2,970,772, rapidly approaching 3 flipping million trash.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE for the shocking numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the U.S. as we speak, sucking away at the American taxpayers’ teats: 36,970,772. [xvi] (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).
  71. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador gave Joe Biden a verbal poke in the eye today when he said, “Enough talk.  It’s time to do something on the border” as our southern neighbor is being overrun with the dregs of the Third World.

  72. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– The Mormon church is going to require all attendees at its services to wear masks as the Chi-Com virus cases continue to skyrocket.   Meanwhile, in Congress, hearings are underway to determine the extent of damage being done to America’s children via mask and Chi-Vi vaccine mandates.  Elsewhere, TikTok bans podcaster Megan McGlover for questioning Joe Biden’s vaccine mandates.  Ms. McGlover happens to be a BLACK woman and yet, the Chi-Com spy app closed her down.
  73. 2021 Wednesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.95 (2) AstraZeneca $58.74 (3) Johnson & Johnson $163.93 (4) BioNTech $339.26 (5) Moderna $440.72.  Yes, the HAITIAN INVASION folks don’t have to take the vaccines, nor do they have to show any form of being COVID-19 free.  However, the Biden regime continues pushing vaccines for everyone as well as boosters.  IF you want to know WHY, look at the fact that the regime just bought one-billion doses of the vaccine to distribute worldwide.  The Benjamins are going to be flowing back into the pockets of every elected Democrat and RINO politician.
  74. 2021 Wednesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $85.27 (2) General Dynamics: $193.75 (3) Boeing: $216.98 (4) Lockheed Martin: $341.73 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $348.52.
  75. 2021 Wednesday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $34.85 (2) DuPont: $68.27 (3) Honeywell: $217.02 (4) 3M: $179.84 (5) Teijen: $1,597.00.
  76. 2021 Wednesday L: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $113.78 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.22 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $26.55.
  77. 2021 Wednesday M: Joe Biden News I– As Joe Biden continues having problems getting his faulty agenda shoved through to fruition, he brought in Democrats from both the House and Senate to bust some balls to get the bogus $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill passed.  Screw him.  Meanwhile, as ‘Rome’ continues to burn down all around him, the usurper in the White House took another slap to the face today when new polls show that his numbers have dropped to 43-percent approval which means in truth, they are between 23-33-percent.  NO one likes Joe, not even his fellow Democrats.
  78. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden called French President Emanuel Macron today, sucked up, apologized for driving the economic dagger in the neck of France over doing a backdoor deal with Australia and Great Britain to supply nuclear submarine technology Downunder, and in so doing, the French have agreed to return their ambassador to Washington, D.C.  Still, Joe has problems what with the House Republicans filing articles of impeachment against the feeble dictator.
  79. 2021 Wednesday O: Political News I– Politico finally verifies that the Hunter Biden laptop story is indeed true as reported all along.  The New York Post- the legendary newspaper that broke the story last year- lampoons Politico by saying ‘we’re shocked.’  Meanwhile, the Democrats are upset that without help from the GOP, their efforts to defund the police and to then replace them with federal police are going into the crapper.  
  80. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News II– We learned today that former President George W. Bush is going to support the re-election bid of soon-to-be-former Rep. Liz “The Loser” Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large congressional district.  Sadly, we know WHY President Bush is doing this because his former vice president is her father but still- haven’t the RINOs learned their lessons yet?  Average Republicans do not like RINOs.  It would be better if RINOs just changed the ‘R’ after their names to a ‘D.’  Speaking of Dems, after House Democrats yanked funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile protection system from the budget reconciliation bill, Senate Dems are returning the billion-dollar aid package as a standalone bill.  Thank God NOT ALL of the Democrats are vicious Anti-Semites.  
  81. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News III– In some shocking news today- if true- the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services won’t confirm the employment of Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams who served in the Trump administration.  Wow.  Is this the path down which, we want to go, Democrats?   Speaking of Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is trying to repair the growing rift between President Trump and failed (and sometime Trumper) Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell.  Senator Graham, there is NO repairing the rift- Senator McConnell is like President George W. Bush: a LOSER.
  82. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News IV– Rep. Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, told Newsmax today that low polling for Joe Biden shows that citizens of her state have had enough of the usurper in the White House.  Meanwhile, another Iowan- Senator Joni Ernst- revealed her new bill- the Prime Cuts Act- ‘Cuts’ standing for Cu Unnecessary Transactions and Spending with which to clean up the bloated federal government.  We wish you luck with your bill.  Finally, it appears that Virginia gubernatorial candidate Glenn Youngkin is leading Democrat and former Clinton ‘bagman’ Terry McAuliffe in the running.
  83. 2021 Wednesday S: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– A new report says that murders in the United States jumped by 29-percent in 2020, the BIGGEST increase since record-keeping began.  In other crime-related news, St. Louis, Missouri, attorneys Mark and Patricia McCloskey face the loss of their law licenses, even after Governor Mike Parson pardoned them.  This should tell everyone that leftist bar associations work against the rights of their members if their politics are NOT WOKE enough.
  84. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3597 what with a $19 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 04, 06, 26, 39, 41, and Mega 12.  Out of 110,890 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person with FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $37,267.  The winning ticket was sold at Esquire Liquor in Glendale, CA 91203.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #888 with a jackpot of $490 million up for grabs: 20, 40, 47, 55, 63, and Powerball 05.  Out of 117,939 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $245,101 apiece.  The Washington state Super Lotto Draw with $2.8 million apiece, 06, 15, 17, 22, 24, and 33.  Out of 8,172 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FIVE numbers out of SIX for a prize of $1,000 apiece.
  85. 2022 Thursday:  Yesterday, I was discussing the 1979 Vela Incident, the atomic detonation in the southern South Atlantic that occurred on this very day.  NO one know who the culprit was, but we suspect it was Taiwan.  The Chi-Coms on the mainland have been making a great deal of noise about retaking Taiwan but there is no way, the island of Formosa is ever going to return to the fold.  After all, Taipei is the actual ruler of the mainland having been forced out by massive numbers of crazed, underfed, and out-of-control communist mobs back in 1949.  Until the United States abandoned Taiwan in favor of currying favor with the Chi-Coms back in the 1970s with much of the world following suit, Taiwan was the true heir of mainland China.  Once the world abandoned the island in favor of the mainland and chucked the Two-China Policy onto the garbage, the Taiwanese have been left to fend for themselves.  As I said yesterday, I suspect Taiwan is prepared for the Chi-Coms to invade as others of my colleagues have said the same.  Others have said that vast drone swarms would also disable, cripple, and then lead to the destruction of any invasion fleet bold enough to cross water five times the distance of what Adolf Hitler and the Nazi war machine faced in 1940.  Sure, the Chi-Coms can fly into Taiwan airspace and circle their vessels around the island in a threatening manner but when push comes to shove, most dictators are cowardly thugs and Xi Jinping is no frigging different.  Let me know your mind- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

In some ways, Cheap Trick was struggling to keep up with the times- and the 1980’s were a cauldron of change for many bands.  Many bands that originated in the 1960’s was either struggling to keep up or had thrown in the towel and would return in another decade or two to become oldies acts.   Cheap Trick had the advantage of coming out of the mid-1970’s and burst onto the scene with their first album as the saviors- along with the Cars and a few others- of rock-and-roll.  On November 17, 1986- with yet another different producer in two- the band released, “The Doctor.”  NO massive hits on this album so the record company was pulling out its hair seeking a rebirth of the 1970’s success.  Sadly, it was not found here.  Once again, the lineup remains Robin Zander (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and Jon Brant (bass, backing vocals), along with a keyboardist and a backup vocalist.  Still, we love this album and know that longtime readers of the AICPENDBLOG.COM will love it, too.  Seek it out ASAP.

[iii] [iii] 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.

[iv] Lt. Col. Vindman and his ‘testimony’ in the build-up to impeachment has to be one of the most embarrassing episodes in which, a uniformed member of the U.S. military has ever engaged, and we wished that he had been stationed on the North Slope of Alaska or on Midway Island for the remainder of his career.  What a scumbag. 

[v] Hunter Biden, known crack head, crooked financial guy who followed his daddy around the world sucking up money from the Chi-Coms, the Ukrainians, and anyone else from whom he could needs to answer loads of questions about HIS activities, both on behalf of himself and his dad.

[xvi] Folks, since the inception of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day back in 2009, we said back then that the numbers of Untermensch in the U.S. back then was between 35-50 million illegal aliens whereas now, we believe that when you take into account the current invasion combined with the numbers of illegals who have been running amok since the 1960s onward in the Continental United States as well as in Hawaii and Alaska, there is between 75-100 million illegals.  We must round this scum up, imprison them, and then launch an Operation Wetback II like the one back in the 1950s where we scoop them all up and dump them in Mexico.  They are NOT our problem, nor will we allow the usurper in the White House to make it our problem.  The time to resist is NOW.

246. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 03, 2022

I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible, much-desired outcome this evening. Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow? He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.

Burger.  As chief justice, Rehnquist served from September 25, 1986, to September 03, 2005.  Meanwhile, President Bush ordered more than 7,000 active-duty forces to the Gulf Coast as his administration intensified efforts to rescue Katrina survivors and send aid to the hurricane-ravaged region in the face of criticism by DEMOCRATS that he did not act quickly enough.  Typical Democrat tactic, they always squeal like pigs about Republican presidents’ response to natural disasters when they themselves drag their feet.  F**K them.

Trump heads to Motown- Detroit- to launch an outreach to black Americans living in poverty.  In Santa Clara, California, local police announce a plan to BOYCOTT San Francisco 49ers games following the anti-cop, anti-American flag protests launched by failed QB Colin Kaepernick.  Good for you!

  63. 2020 Thursday: Last week, approximately 881,000 new jobless claims occurred bringing the unemployment numbers for Americans to 13,300,000.  On the campaign trail today, President Donald J. Trump is blitzing Pennsylvania while “Pro-China Joe” Biden is in Kenosha, Wisconsin, pandering to the family of Jacob Blake.  Polls show Biden has ‘commanding leads’ in battleground states such as Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Arizona.  Elsewhere, Antioch, California, Mayor Sean Wright blasts Contra Costa County District Attorney Diane Beckton that before she prosecutes looters, she will first make the determination as to whether they NEEDED the items they stole.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is beginning the process of slashing federal funding to four largely Democratic Party-held cities- Seattle, Portland, Oregon, New York City, and Washington D.C. until they reestablish and enforce law and order.  In response to this, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo tells POTUS ‘YOU CAN’T COME TO NEW YORK- OR ELSE.’ Finally, Facebook announces it will ban all political ads one week out from the November elections in the hope it can prevent Russian disinformation from swaying voters to vote ‘correctly,’ meaning for “Gropin’ Joe” Biden and not for President Donald J. Trump.
  64. 2020 Thursday A: California state Senator Scott Wiener sends SB 145 legislation to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his signature.  The bill will give judges ‘discretion’ in sentencing pedophiles and will lower penalties for child rape provided the difference in age between the so-called ‘willing child’ and the rapist is 10 years of less.  Hence, a 20-year-old sexual deviate can rape a 10-year-old child either anally or orally by claiming the youngster was a ‘willing participant’ in his rape.  Someone somewhere, do something to Senator Wiener- within the scope of the law.  California is indeed Sodom and Gomorrah. God, wipe out the state!
  65. 2020 Thursday B: Speaker Pelosi continues screeching that she ‘was framed’ for Hairgate, promising to get even with those who ‘set her up’ and was able to intimidate the hairdresser who gave her and wash and blowout into saying that ‘yes, she was setup.’  What is clear here is that Speaker Pelosi knows she is in the wrong because she canceled her weekly press conference today as she fears having to answer questions about this scandalous behavior.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 346,217 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 57,861 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- Puerto Rico: $3.558.  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- Montenegro: $6.057 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,719,043,045,883 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 Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 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.
  75. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As the Chinese move into Afghanistan, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, says they are going to find it hard going.  We mentioned this a while back because there are so many disparate groups in Afghanistan that it will be extremely easy for them to come into conflict with the Chinese.  Muslims despise communists and the former Soviet Union understands this extremely well.   When the Taliban or ISIS-K or the warrior tribes begin attacking Chinese infrastructure and killing their people, it will be problematic for the bottom line in Beijing.  The Chinese will have to respond heavy-handedly, and we suspect they could find themselves embroiled in their own lengthy war, perhaps 40 years?
  76. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, friends- today is Day No. 163 for the globally famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 70 since her one and only visit to the region.  Otherwise, she has been doing everything imaginable to avoid doing her job.  What a shame.  According to One America News network, here are the astounding numbers for both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens and the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals within the United States thanks to the absent Biden regime.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $493,569,376.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the refuse of the Third World for calendar year, 2021: $268,986,777,600.  Third, here is the number for illegals who have swarmed across our border for just this year: 2,756,899.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE for illegal aliens residing in our country, swamping hospitals, overrunning schools, sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers 24/7/365: 36,756,900.  You know what we say- the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million of the scumbags.  Let’s round them up, throw them aboard southbound planes, trains, automobiles, trucks, and even tramp steamers 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).  Note- more than $54 million has been donated to Texas to continue the building of its border wall.  Excellent.
  77. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The People’s Republic of China announced today that it is going to retain its embassy in Kabul and will provide economic assistance to the Taliban.  They will also work at building oil pipelines from Iran through the so-called “Graveyard of Empires” to western China.  In other overseas news, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga is set to resign as the end of the month following a collapse in his poll numbers.  His battle against COVID-19 has not been as good as anticipated and he is doing the honorable thing as Joe Biden should in the United States.   New elections will occur soon.
  78. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is setting harsher measures regarding COVID-19 after shunning vaccine help from neighboring China.  Uh-oh.  Loads of people are going to die.  Meanwhile, China is going to scrub all effeminate men from its airwaves.  Perhaps we should do that here in the United States? 
  79. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new report says that 83-percent of recent blood donations ALL show evidence of COVID-19 antibodies.  Meanwhile, as the U.S. government continues pushing forward with demanding COVID-19 booster shots (again, follow the money), the European Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there is “NO evidence of a need for a third shot.”  The FDA said today that it’s going to take additional time to determine whether a need for a booster (or a never-ending series of booster) shots before ordering them.  Still, if and when we go down this crazy road, Pfizer will be the one pumping out the boosters.  (Note- everyone begin investing in Pfizer stock.  NOW).
  80. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– A new report suggests that ‘unvaccinated cadets at the U.S. Border Patrol Academy could soon be booted unless they roll up their arms for the jab.  Wow.  Next, crazy Dr. Ashish Jha says, ‘it’s not crazy to think there is a need for a third round of COVID-19 booster shots.’  Dr. Jha, do us a favor: shut the hell up.  WHY do we need COVID-19 vaccines much less a damned booster shot when the vaccines contain an extinct virus?  The original virus is long since gone, we are moving through one variant after another such as the Delta, the Lambda, and now the notorious ‘MU.’  Stop spreading bullshit, please.  Meanwhile, a new Rasmussen poll says that viewers of conservative news channels have better understanding of the risks associated with the vaccines or of death facing them whether they get the vaccines or don’t get the vaccines.
  81. 2021 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $58.83 (3) Johnson & Johnson $175.04 (4) BioNTech $334.30 (5) Moderna $416.70.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: -(1) Pfizer $46.60 (2) AstraZeneca $58.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $172.93 (4) BioNTech $358.48 (5) Moderna $382.22.  See the trend?  FOLLOW THE MONEY!
  82. 2021 Friday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.65 (2) General Dynamics: $202.46 (3) Boeing: $218.17 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.00 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $365.93.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today:  Raytheon: $85.40 (2) General Dynamics: $199.72 (3) Boeing: $221.66 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.99 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $364.99.  Remain vigilant.  Invest in companies you believe in because our elected leaders and the denizens of the Deep State are investing in these companies and in the pharmaceutical stocks.  FOLLOW THE MONEY!
  83. 2021 Friday N: 2020 Election Audit– People are beginning to inquire as to WHEN the Arizona 2020 Election audit results are going to be released?  So far, NO WORD as to when which is leading some people to speculate that Attorney General Mark Brnovich is sitting atop them because the RINO has been bought off by Democrat allies.  We will keep you posted.  Meanwhile, the Badger State is ordering its own 2020 Election Audit as Pennsylvania prepares to do.
  84. 2021 Friday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump endorsed famed NFL star Hershel Walker to defeat freshman Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, in November 2022.  Excellent choice.  Speaking of the President, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th CD, says he believes that President Trump will be running for a third term in 2024. 
  85. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators are demanding feeble old Joe Biden provide information on the numbers of Americans he abandoned behind the lines in Afghanistan.  Next, bowing to pressure from the American people, Joe Biden released an executive order ordering the FBI to release all relevant information concerning September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the role the Saudis played in it.  We shall see what happens.  Finally, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel reported tonight that financial aid will make its way to the Taliban because they have promised to combat CLIMATE CHANGE.  How about that?  (Joe, we’ll fight CLIMATE CHANGE, too, by stop eating gaseous vegetables.  How do we get some of this easy money?)
  86. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Crazy old Joe Biden is lying yet again, this time saying how he ‘spent a lot of time at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, following the white supremacist attack on the place of worship back on October 27, 2018.’  Now, Joe believes he was Donald J. Trump because President Trump is the man who visited the site and met with the rabbi, not senile old Joe.
  87. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– New reports suggest that Susan Rice, Ron Klain, and Barack Hussein Obama are the ones calling the shots in the sagging ears of senile old Joe Biden.  Next, this is extremely puzzling, and we heard today that the Biden regime wants to remove penalties on the trafficking of deadly fentanyl into the United States.  WTF?
  88. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– Much excitement is swirling around the GOP candidate- Cicely Davis- seeking to unseat the extremely unpopular rabble rouser, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th CD, in 2022.  Omar is reputed to have married her brother to scam the U.S. immigration system and is a strong advocate of jihad and other Islamist ideas.  We will send money to Ms. Davis.  Omar and her fellow (Suicide) Squad skanks- Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, and Cori “The Bitch” Bush all must be ejected from office in November 2022 and onto the scrap heap of defeated left-wing politicians.
  89. 2021 Friday T: Economic News– The White House is running for cover because the expected 720,000 new jobs in the month of July collapsed to a measly 235,00 jobs, most of which, we suspect are little more than ‘hamburger-flipper jobs.’  Shame on the Biden regime for destroying the U.S. economy.  Still, it did not stop the brain-dead usurper in the White House to take a dig at President Donald J. Trump during a ‘jobs speech’ today when he mumbled, “I took on a nation in crisis.”  Joe, YOU caused the crisis, the nation was doing quite well before you stole the 2020 Presidential Election.   In other news, Paris Dennard who once worked with Donald J. Trump and who works for the GOP says that Joe Biden has failed the black community.  He pointed out that unemployment for black males has gone up to 9.1 percent, for black females to 7.9 percent, and for black youths to 17.9 percent.  Man, oh, man, Joe Biden, you are helping black Americans extremely well, aren’t you?  You loser.
  90. 2021 Friday U: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former Roman Catholic Church Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Massachusetts is set to be arraigned on charged he molested a teenager.  Meanwhile, Jacob Chansley, the so-called QANON shaman reportedly is taking a plea deal that will see him do 41-51 months behind bars instead of close to 50 for his role in wandering into the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.
  91. 2021 Friday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, plans to follow the Texas Pro-Life law in her state.  She wants to make South Dakota a strong Pro-Life refuge and not a barbarous, baby chop shop like many leftist-controlled states. [xx]  Speaking of Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton says that abortion law ‘must be at the state level and not the federal.’  We concur.  San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone says that abortion is not a ‘religious issues’ but a ‘fundamental human rights issue.’  Still, the Biden regime aided by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY are working overtime to uncover a scheme by which they can overturn the new Texas fetal heartbeat law.  A Senate panel is now carrying out a probe on this ‘evil law,’ one the U.S. Supreme Court allowed to stand… Finally, liberal groups are suing individual Texas lawmakers over the new fetal heartbeat law in the Lone Star State.
  92. 2021 Friday W: Social Media News – Twitter launched a new feature that will allow SOME users to earn money from tweeting.  Bet you won’t see any conservatives making any money from Twitter.   Meanwhile, YouTube censored a video supporting the recall of California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  Shame on them.
  93. 2021 Friday X: Big Tech News– Apple Inc. finally got around to eliminating a homeless community on their property in Silicon Valley.  They offered all manner of aid and help to its inhabitants, most of whom turned it down and wandered away when the area was cleansed, sanitized, and made useful again.  Advocates of urban outdoorsmen raised a BIG STINK, but it is cruel to allow people to live like animals.  We must reclaim and rehabilitate them and return them to society as contributing members.
  94. 2021 Friday Y: Weather News I– In New York City in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, at least 44 people have lost their lives in various storm-related mishaps.  Some drowned in basement apartments, others were swept away, and still others drowned in submerged vehicles.  The Democrats are howling that Global Warming is the root cause but folks, hurricanes typically occur every year and some of them can be extremely destructive.   Speaking of Ida, slobbering Joe Biden visited New Orleans today to visit storm-related damage there and lo and behold NOT a single outcry from the Fake News Media screeching that Joe was ‘taking away resources by his visit that were needed elsewhere.’  Funny how this works… Elsewhere, when Ida hit New Jersey, the storm-generated tornado we saw on the news had winds of 150 mph.  Wow.
  95. 2021 Friday Z: War on Terror News-Terrorism News-Jihad News– Member of the ‘Beatles,’ an ISIS execution group, British-born Alexanda Kotey, pled guilty in a U.S. courtroom to murdering and torturing numerous people, Americans among them, overseas in the now defeated ISIS caliphate.  He is set to spend the remainder of his crappy life in a federal prison.  In other news, police in New Zealand swarmed a local grocery store after a jihadist whipped out a large knife and began slashing shoppers and within minutes, shot the suspect dead.  Good.  Hang his corpse up for the crows.
  96. 2021 Friday AA: California State News– California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, DS, says that ’21 percent of the mail-in ballots in the recall election of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom are already pouring in.’  This should give the Dems ample opportunity to see how many ballots they are going to have to order from other states so they can maintain this POS governor in office.
  97. 2021 Friday BB: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The stupid California teacher Annette Franco who bragged in a TikTok video how she removed the reviled American flag from her grade school classroom and supplanted it with the homosexual rainbow flag and had her kids pledge allegiance to the foul thing has been removed from the classroom.  Yet, she will sit in a CTA rubber room for the rest of her days drawing her full check and benefits.
  98. 2021 Friday CC: Observation of the Day– Here’s an observation for you: the Ancient Greeks were ‘WOKE,’ and the Romans steamrolled over them.  More than a thousand years later, the Ancient Romans equally became ‘WOKE’ and the barbarians overran them.  For all you pansified losers prancing around demanding all things ‘WOKE,’ if you succeed, you are more or less sealing the fate of the United States- the brightest spot on the planet for human rights- by guaranteeing we are more concerned with gender, perversion, homosexuality, and other signs of the End Times.  However, you will be among the first to go when the Chinese, the Russians, the Islamists, or some other culture takes us over.  It will be a pleasure watching you thrown from skyscrapers, hung from helicopters and construction cranes, or any of the other ways devised by the enemies of human rights and freedoms.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.  
  99. 2021 Friday DD: Observation of the Day II– Regarding abortion, whatever happened to personal responsibility?  The fact that women continue getting knocked up implies that relations between men and women have become extremely sloppy.  While most gay men use condoms, it appears that women are open to any and all penetration sans any form of birth control (condoms, IUDs, birth control pills, and other easily accessible forms of preventing unwanted pregnancies) which then leaves abortion as the ONLY form of correcting a ‘mistake.’  I am inclined to believe that where once President Bill Clinton said that abortion should be ‘safe, legal, and rare,’ and that most Americans can accept termination of a pregnancy within the first trimester, the reason for abortion at ALL STAGES of fetal and even post-fetal development, i.e., birth, is because Planned Parenthood encourages it.  The reason for the encouragement is because they make BIG BUCKS just as they can continue the slaughter of babies of color, black women being number one among the recipients of abortions.  This is evil and it must stop.  Once a country makes it legal (and easy) to get rid of unwanted babies, the deformed, the mentally ill, and the old and senile (watch out, Joe) will be the next.  Think about it.  The Nazis labeled the unwanted as ‘useless eaters,’ people who contributed nothing to society (in their view) and who were in need of euthanasia.  Let’s return to men and women exercising personal responsibility and not becoming part of the Satanic offerings the left wants us all to be.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.
  100. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1691 what with a $323 million jackpot on the line: 07, 10, 12, 61, 65, and Mega 03.  Out of 111,113 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,292.
  101. 2021 Friday FF: Friends, the government says via a recent white paper that if an American citizen questions the efficacy of wearing masks or the results of the 2020 Presidential and National Elections, that person can and most likely will be considered a TERRORIST.  If that is the case, then so be it but I will tell our friends in the government this: there are far more of us than there are of YOU.  You would be wise to remember that.  Also, the moment the Joestapo shows up, demand a lawyer.  Period.  God bless America!
  102. 2022 Saturday: I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible outcome this evening.  Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow?  He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.  I am praying for a similar outcome because our nation cannot stand much more of the hateful, racist, divisiveness that is ripping the fabric of our great nation apart.  As I’ve said, I think arresting the man in a public setting will set off his minions which will then lead to civil unrest across the country thus giving us the pretext for our noble president to declare martial law and to postpone the November elections.  We must postpone the elections so as to secure our imperiled nation and we must send all the insurrectionists to reeducation camps so they can become contributing members of society once again.  Let’s take a page out of the China-Uighur Muslim playbook and put it to good use here- I think it will work.  Let me know what you think- Chef Itzi Nakamura.

238. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, AUGUST 26, 2022

I would like to say that IF the United Nations cannot find a way to stop this extremely illegal and criminal war, then the UN should disband. We should kick this corrupt and phony organization out of the United States and have them go set up shop in Beijing, another illicit, criminal-run nation. The UN obviously is a Third World bandstand for global dictators and murderers and does absolutely nothing to prevent wars, to stop wars, or to punish evildoers such as Vladimir Putin.

  43. 1981 Wednesday: Following the shooting by North Korea of an anti-aircraft missile at a U.S. surveillance plane over South Korea, the United States reported the incident to the global community.  Frigging North Koreans!
  44. 1985 Monday: Ryan White, a 13-year-old AIDS patient, began “attending” classes at Western Middle School in Kokomo, Indiana, via telephone hook-up at his home; school officials had barred Ryan from attending classes in person.  At the time with the HIV-AIDS epidemic being so new, people were terrified at how easily the virus might be transmitted. 
  45. 1986 Tuesday: In the so-called preppie murder case, the authorities discovered 18-year-old Jennifer Levin strangled in New York’s Central Park; Robert Chambers later pleaded guilty to manslaughter and served 15 years in prison.

  56. 2011 Friday: Japan’s National Police Agency reports that 90-percent of cyberattacks on its website came from IP addresses located in the People’s Republic of China.   Why would information such as this surprise anyone?  In 2019, the Chi-Coms are trying to get everyone to take their Huawei 5 G network and in 2020, various countries including the U.S. are trying to boot out their ‘social media ap’ (spying ap) TikTok.

  65. 2020 Wednesday: Basement-dwelling “Pro-China Joe” Biden says the Republican National Convention is an ‘alternate reality.’  His good pal, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi mumbles that the House will investigate Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s speech from Jerusalem the previous night as some sort of illegal speech.  Speaking of angry Democrats, BIG LOSER Hillary Rodham Clinton continues telling the Biden campaign “Not to concede under any circumstances on Election Day” as she believes ‘he will eventually win.”  Four years ago, she was blasting Donald J. Trump for saying he would have to ‘wait and see’ before accepting the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.  My, how times have changed.  Meanwhile, Democrats continue attacking First Lady Melania Trump for ‘not being able to speak English when she gave her speech in the White House rose garden the previous night.’  Well, many believe it’s better to have a first lady with an accent than one with a swinging dill pickle like the prior one.  Add to this the fact that Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, is attempting to take a second bite at the apple by demanding Deutsche Bank hand over President Trump’s financial records.   Finally, Democrats are beginning to express their dissatisfaction with “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s ‘basement strategy.’  Hell, we could have told you he wasn’t going to win if he continues on addressing the nation from his bunker.
  66. 2020 Wednesday A: In the Gulf of Mexico, Hurricane Laura is expected to be a Cat 4 storm when it makes landfall some time tomorrow along the Texas-Louisiana coastlines with winds up to 115 mph, 15-20 feet of storm surge, and hitting up to 60 miles inland.  In Texas, 420,000 people are evacuating as are between 200,000-250,000 people in Louisiana.  God help them.  Meanwhile, in California, wildfires have ravaged more than 36.5 million acres, an area more than 6-times the size of New York City.  Already, at least 7 lives have been lost as have countless homes and businesses.  Speaking of lost lives, after two nights of hardcore rioting and looting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, over the shooting of Jacob Blake, gunfire kills 2 and injures at least one.  Police have dragnets out for the shooters as more National Guard troops AND federal law enforcement officers arrive on scene.  Speaking of RIOTS, after 90 straight days of violent protests- and five straight nights of called ‘riots’ in Portland, Oregon, Gov. Kate Brown demands it STOPS NOW.  The Trump administration wants to send in troops and is pushing the Democrat governor to accept them.  (If you want our opinion- and we know you do, otherwise you would not be here, it’s time to round up ALL rioters and commit a Malmedy Massacre on them).  Elsewhere- on the other side of the planet- in response to a U2 surveillance flight over territory the Chi-Coms claim is their own, the Chi-Com military fires off two missiles a la North Korean-style as a form of ‘protest.’  F**k them!
  67. 2020 Wednesday B: Here are tonight’s speakers at the Republican National Convention: Lara Trump, Trump campaign senior advisor, Vice President Mike Pence, Second Lady Karen Pence, Sen.

  68. 2020 Wednesday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 24,011,502 confirmed cases, UP by 316,856 cases, 821,809 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,555 deaths, and 15,636,116 confirmed recoveries, UP by 255,012 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,899,331 confirmed cases, UP by 49,053 new cases, 181,791 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,416 new deaths, and 3,002,904 confirmed recoveries, UP by 22,300 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 c**ksuckers).
  69. 2020 Wednesday D: 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: 679,099 confirmed cases, 12,407 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 6,984 confirmed cases, 49 confirmed deaths, and 2,236 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 71,904 confirmed cases, 1,876 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced 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, New Mexico: 24,732 confirmed number of cases, 755 confirmed number of deaths, but unlike other Blue State locales, there are 12,193 confirmed recoveries in the state.

  71. 2020 Wednesday F: Tucker Carlson reports on his show that one of the candidates for district attorney in Los Angeles is San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, someone supported by Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom who wants to abolish all jails and prisons as well as disband the police.  He also reports the truth that the upheavals in the United States are not ‘race-based’ but ‘class-based,’ the classic Marxist assault on society.   It is clear to many that this election is one in which FREEDOM goes up against COMMUNISM which means we have one choice and one choice only: DEFEAT the Democrats and everyone connected to them.  Thank you, Democratic-Socialist Party of America- the DSPA- the NEW Democratic Party, you have sold your souls and you are making it easier for us to crush you.
  72. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 215,334,933 confirmed cases, +639,531, 4,485,353 confirmed deaths, +10,007 and 192,533,417 confirmed recoveries, +509,278.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 39,276,310 confirmed cases, UP 121,109 from yesterday’s reporting, 650,778 confirmed deaths, UP 1,010, [vi] and 30,708,149 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,910.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 332,090 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 71,988 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  74. 2021 Thursday 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: 4,287,231 confirmed cases, 65,481 confirmed deaths (DOWN), and 2,251,942 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,175,740 confirmed cases, 42,731 confirmed deaths, and 2,329,520 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 58,578 confirmed cases, 573 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 544,843 confirmed cases, 6,508 confirmed deaths, and 242,913 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., North Dakota: they have 116,022 confirmed cases, 1,556 confirmed deaths, and 112,460 confirmed recoveries. [viii]

[xiii]        
  77. 2021 Thursday 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 $4.392 per gallon, $2.954 in Florida, $4.080 in Hawaii, and $3.898 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let us look at one other location- Tennessee: $2.839.  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- Cyprus: $5.807 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,687,438,612,295 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  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 France, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Norway with $88 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.
  78. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Today, ISIS-K- with the blessing of the Taliban- carried out TWO catastrophic suicide bombings at or near the Hamid Karzai International Airport.  First, a bomb attack hit the Abbey Gate and then a nearby hotel suffered an attack.  At least 11-12 U.S. Marines and one U.S. Navy corpsman were killed outright while another 15 suffered grievous wounds.  At least 40-50 Afghans lost their lives and another 120-140 were injured.  For the U.S., this was the worst attack in a decade and the first deaths in the godforsaken Islamic hellhole in 18 months.  A stuttering, stumbling Joe Biden mumbled condolences and promised retribution and as soon as he answered 3-4 ‘canned questions,’ he rambled off into the background.  Almost immediately, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki had to rush out and spend 35-45 minutes answering reporters’ questions because it was clear that Joe Biden had no idea what the hell, he had for breakfast this morning.  Still, Joe Biden vowed to hunt down the scoundrels responsible for this attack, but it rapidly became clear- at least to us- that as soon as he left the stage, he had no clue as to what he had just said.
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News II– Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that ‘swift retaliatory action’ is called for against the ISIS-K thugs.  Meanwhile, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, says, ‘don’t kid yourselves, terrorist attacks coming to the U.S. sooner rather than later.’  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says that ‘open borders invite terrorist attacks inside the U.S.’  Next, Senator Bob “Cho-Mo” Menendez, DS-NJ, says the U.S. ‘cannot trust the Taliban with Americans’ security.’  Moving on, former National Security Advisor to President Donald J. Trump- H.R. McMaster- says that this is ’just the beginning.’  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, and Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, join the chorus demanding the feeble old regime leader resign NOW.  Finally, the Pentagon is preparing for MORE attacks as the days remaining to the evacuation before the Taliban go ballistic dwindle almost to nothing.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 155 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xvii] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 62 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $533,726,656.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $260,259,823,616.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,667,454.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,667,456.   (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).
  81. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $47.38 (2) AstraZeneca $58.76 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.30 (4) BioNTech $369.99 (5) Moderna $400.30.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.76 (2) General Dynamics: $199.07 (3) Boeing: $216.50 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.62 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $366.76.
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– We learned today that the Biden White House team gave personal information on Americans and Afghan allies remaining in Afghanistan to the Taliban so the terrorists could ‘help us’ collect them and get them to the airport.  WTF, people?  This man and this regime must go, and it must go NOW.  The Kabul bombings have shaken this crumbling regime to its core and it’s clear that with increasing calls for resignations from the regime leader on down to the losers in the Pentagon that this fraudulent regime cannot last much longer.
  84. 2021 Thursday L: Political News I– Democrats are urging the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to provide Afghans with temporary protected status so they can come to the U.S.  In other political news, seven sniveling Capitol Hill Police Department offices have filed lawsuits against President Donald J. Trump and his allies, blaming him and them for their emotional traumas and upsets.  We watched four of these crybabies testifying before “Mumbles” Pelosi’s bogus January 06, 2021, House panel.  Wah, wah, wah, stop with the frigging tears you frigging punks, the FBI already says there was no coordination between anyone on the day of the biggest FALSE FLAG OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF AMERICAN POLITICS!  YOU LOSERS ARE A DISGRACE!
  85. 2021 Thursday M: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg plead ‘no contest’ to two fatalities in an automobile accident while supposedly under the influence.  In doing so, he avoids jail time.  Meanwhile, the assassin of Senator Robert F. Kennedy, Sirhan Bashara Sirhan, is seeking parole; the government won’t contest it (because most believe he did not do it).  Next, two people are killed and one wounded in a targeted courthouse shooting in Illinois.
  86. 2022 Friday: Today’s Points– As a woman, I find the crime of rape to be especially appalling.  On Newsmax, Greta Van Susteren has run a special on Russian war crimes in Ukraine with yesterday’s topic being the ongoing, Kremlin-approved rapes of Ukrainian women in the occupied territories. Every guilty Russian soldier should be castrated on the spot and have their slimy organs thrust into their mouths and then dumped face-down into an open sewage ditch.  One must wonder how crimes such as these can remain under the radar in a world that claims to be against wartime atrocities.  NO one seems to care.  I would like to say that IF the United Nations cannot find a way to stop this extremely illegal and criminal war, then the UN should disband.  We should kick this corrupt and phony organization out of the United States and have them go set up shop in Beijing, another illicit, criminal-run nation.  The UN obviously is a Third World bandstand for global dictators and murderers and does absolutely nothing to prevent wars, to stop wars, or to punish evildoers such as Vladimir Putin.  Sure, they’ll go after some POS from Myanmar or the former Yugoslavia but when it comes to punishing a piece of duck crap like Vladimir Putin, oh, nothing is said.  If I could, I would.  I would gladly pull the trigger and give him something to think about on his one-way journey to hell.  Let me know what you think- Chef Goldie McNamara.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Live long enough and eventually, one will hear every last lick recorded by a veteran band which is why we have “1967- Sunshine Tomorrow 2- the Studio Sessions,” an even more beefed-up version of “Wild Honey” released on July 30, 2017.  Here is what we said regarding the aforementioned “Wild Honey”- although the Beach Boys were on the decline, the next album, “Wild Honey,” came out on December 18, 1967, and is one we absolutely love and wholeheartedly recommend.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass) as it was all hands-on deck.  The album features nothing but quality material beginning with the upbeat, “Wild Honey,” to the captivating “Aren’t You Glad,” to a cover of Stevie Wonder’s, “I Was Made to Love Her,” to the live classic, “Darlin’,” to the playful, “I’d Love Once Just to See You.” Also on the album is a raucous “Here Comes the Night” to yet another long-time live classic, “Let the Wind Blow.”  The other songs on the album are not filler but all quality material.  This album also includes “Smiley Smile” and everything surrounding that release plus more-more-more.  The Beach Boys were growing beards, sporting longer hair, and wearing modern-day clothing like the rest of the wild and crazy acts of the late 1960s.  You get loads of additional material plus seven concerts and portions of others all recorded back in the day.  Too good to be true.  We hope you will seek this one out and definitely make it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  You will love it.

  70. 2021 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As things in Afghanistan continue going to hell, at least one Afghan soldier was killed by Taliban thugs outside the Hamid Karzai International Airport and three others wounded in action.   Meanwhile, U.S. Embassy staff in Kabul reports harrowing experiences by those who manage to get through the cordon outside the HKIA.  As if this isn’t bad enough, the Taliban told the Biden regime that ‘IF the U.S. is not out of the country by the deadline of August 31, that will be crossing their RED LINE.’  Add to this humiliation the fact that the Chi-Coms are laughing at their stooge in the White House, heaping insult atop the old codger on state-run media.  (Note- here’s a good one: A new report says that 229 ex-Gitmo detainees have returned to the War on Terror as we all knew they would).
  71. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 152 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris[xvii] to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 59 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $740,075,040.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $255,043,156,448.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,624,352.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,624,354.  (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).
  72. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The FDA has given the Pfizer-BioNTech Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine full approval which is going to lead to loads of problems as we shall see.  First of all, Pentagon spokesman Admiral John Kirby said today that ‘ALL U.S. military personnel must get the vaccine- or else.’  Next, U.S. Surgeon General Admiral Vivek Murthy said today that he expects more businesses and universities to impose vaccine mandates on customers and students since the FDA cleared the vaccine.
  73. 2021 Monday I: Health and Medical Alerts– The Food and Drug Administration is warning U.S. citizens NOT to use Ivermectin to treat the Chi-Com Kung Flu Virus.  Meanwhile, a new report that came out and then seemed to vanish suggests that vaccinated people are more inclined to come down with serious illnesses than unvaccinated people than previously thought.  NO f—king way any of us plan to get this crap vaccine.  Dr. Ben Carson says that ‘vaccine mandates are shaping a terrible future.’
  74. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says ‘yes, there is mask fatigue, but everyone is going to have to continue wearing them’ even as we see pictures of the big soiree held by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian hypocrite, over the weekend where NO ONE but the servers wore masks.  What a farce, what a joke, what bulls**t but apparently when a Democrat hosts a $29,000 per plate party and no one but the staff wears masks, why should any of the rest of us wear masks?  We have no intention of bowing down to this crap anymore.  Speaking of Democrats, New York judges are ordering that ALL defendants get vaccinated for the Bat Flu or else.  What is up with all these threats?  Joe Biden said today that ‘since the FDA approved the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, he expects more businesses to demand that ALL employees get vaccinated or lose their jobs.  Finally, the fake news has terrified enough people that a poll says 40-percent of the American people are less likely to fly on airlines if the mask mandates go by the wayside.
  75. 2021 Monday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $49.93 (2) AstraZeneca $58.80 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.61 (4) BioNTech $382.10 (5) Moderna $411.89.
  76. 2021 Monday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.96 (2) General Dynamics: $198.01 (3) Boeing: $219.40 (4) Lockheed Martin: $357.35 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $362.68.
  77. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden urges the U.S. Supreme Court to keep his evictions moratorium in place.  Speaking of the decrepit regime leader, his approval ratings have dropped below the fifties to 48-percent (which in all truth- without the Fake News interference- is most likely down in the low thirties at best).
  78. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– National Security Advisor Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan said this morning that ‘Joe Biden won’t rule out sending MORE troops to Afghanistan to help beleaguered Americans and Afghan allies trying to get through the cordon surrounding the Hamid Karzai International Airport.’  (Note- Joe is going to get us into a wider war.  Someone please tell the reprobate losers Susan Rice and Barack Hussein Obama to STOP destroying the country).  Even more shocking is that an Axios report says that the Biden regime is NOT expected to fire ANY OFFICIALS over the ongoing debacle in Afghanistan as doing so would mean the regime would have to admit that it screwed everything up.
  79. 2021 Monday O: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Police in Portland, Oregon, are investigating a shooting incident between the Proud Boys and Antifa punks.  Wouldn’t it be great if the police of Portland and of the state actually did their jobs?  Speaking of the Proud Boys, leader Enrique Tarrio gets five months in the slammer for having burned a frigging Black Lives Matter flag.  What a load of crap but that is what happens when a fake regime is in the White House.
  80. 2021 Monday P: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov spent his last day in office by saying to his accusers, ‘someday the truth is going to come out’ as to how he was railroaded out of office.  Still, the loser can’t make any friends what him leaving his dog behind in the gubernatorial mansion and his commuting the sentences of FOUR CONVICTED MURDERERS.  Public opinion is staunchly deadest against these actions and yet, the outgoing governor did it anyway.  We expect California’s loser Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to do the same thing in the (hopeful) waning days of his regime seeing as how millions of Californians are anxious to see him go.
  81. 2021 Monday Q: Texas State News– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, tested positive for the Chi-Vi today after testing positive last week.  Speaking of Governor Abbott, Tucker Carlson on Fox News this evening asked WHEN the Lone Star State’s governor is going to deploy troops to the southern border.
  82. 2021 Monday R: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– Here are the results for the Powerball Monday Night Draw #875 what with a $293 million jackpot on the line: 17, 36, 47, 60, 61, and Mega 15.  Out of 43,992 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 24 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $495.
  83. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Get this- Joe Biden’s aides reportedly were afraid to challenge their boss’ timeline on fleeing Afghanistan.  Who is fearful of Joe Biden?  What a load of crap.  The regime’s apparatchiks continue trying to make it appear that this senile old POS is somehow running the show.  The man can’t even tell his ass from a hole in the ground.  In other whacked out news of the day, everyone must look into the 30/30 Plan.  You won’t find it on a normal browser, use Duck-Duck Go or another secured browser to see the bulls**t the federal government is doing to U.S. farmers.  They are paying them to DESTROY croplands and to dump out any oil they may have so by 2030, 30-percent of the land in the U.S. will be in ‘conservation.’  This also is going to create dependence upon foreign sources of food.  This is frigging crazy.
  84. 2022 Tuesday: For now, unlike my colleagues, I am going to keep my thoughts to myself.  There are a whole lot of intrusions out there seeking to crash our servers.  It is what it is.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0930 a 40” x 60” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset Dreams.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Once again, Europe f**ked everything up when they began jimmying around with copyright laws but what the hell- it caused record companies to dig deep into their vaults and to then release archival material lest they lose the copyright.  Thus, today, we have the next live album from the Beach Boys- “Graduation Day 1966- Live at the University of Michigan”- released on December 09, 2016.  You get two shows for the price of one plus the rehearsals.  If you enjoyed the old Beach Boys album, “Beach Boys Concert”- which is a glorious live album for its day, you will most definitely enjoy this one.  We hope you will seek this one out and to make it part of your daily listening rotation- you will be glad you did.

232. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2022

It is clear that Senate Minority ‘Leader’ “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell really does not want to win the Senate back if these are to be his new senators because he knows that IF they are, he most likely won’t be re-elected ‘majority leader.’ He is, after all, one of the worst leaders the GOP has ever had much like John Boehner and Paul Ryan were losers in the House.

Trump’s bid to block the subpoena launched by Trump-hater District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. of New York County.  This loser has been unfairly pursuing Donald Trump since he assumed office.  Speaking of New York, New York City is investigating Mayor Bill Di Blasio’s wife for having a lavish 14-person staff and for spending millions of the taxpayers’ dollars to do God knows what.  We will see where this goes, too.
  60. 2020 Thursday A: In Grand Prairie, Texas, the plastic plant that ignited yesterday continues burning today.  Firefighters believe it will require several more days for it to subside.  Halfway around the world, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un delegates more power to his lovely sister, Kim Yo-Jong which makes her his de facto number two.  Many people question as to when she will become the NUMBER ONE- if she is not already and the guy many believe to be Kim turns out to be a doppelganger.  We are keeping an eye on this one, too.

Tammy Duckworth, D-IL, and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms, and then- as far as we know- “Pro-China Joe” Biden will give his somnambulant speech.  Hopefully, he will not get up there and blow it by going blank with drool spilling off his chin.  Oh, a feeling of exhilaration fills the hearts of the Democratic-Socialists with their pick- don’t you know the American people are ‘going to have to run to keep up with Mr. Biden’ if he somehow steals the November Election?

[xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Oklahoma: $2.889.  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- Slovenia: $5.560 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,664,979,325,196 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 India, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168 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.  
  72. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As the Biden pullout of Afghanistan continues down its disastrous path, new reports say that the Taliban is going door to door searching for Christians.  They will undergo beheading.   Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, says that Afghanistan is becoming the new ‘jihadist Club Med.’ Next, new reports suggest that senile Joe Biden ignored calls from British Prime Minister Boris Johnson for ’36 hours’ so the allies could get their people out of the country in an orderly manner rather than the mess the world now sees.  Elsewhere, the United Arab Emirates agrees to host 5,000 Afghan refugees until the United States can bring them into the country.  Next, Senator Roger Marshall, R-KS, says ‘blame politics, not U.S. intel for the snafu in Afghanistan.’  Add to that the fact the House GOP is demanding to know ‘how many American weapons were left in Afghanistan for the Taliban to capture.’
  73. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must.  Today is Day No. 149 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 56th day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $582,096,799.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $251,541,056,765.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,675,879.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,667,877.  (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).  U.S. District Court Judge Miranda Du in Reno, Nevada, ruled that a 1929 immigration law that makes crossing back into the U.S. after being deported a felony as somehow ‘unconstitutional.’  WTF!  
  74. 2021 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey cites the fentanyl crisis in his lawsuit against the Biden regime demanding a return to the ‘Remain in Mexico Policy’ enacted by President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of courts, a U.S. court denies the Biden regime’s request to forestall the return of the “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Good.  Watch the Biden regime ignore it.
  75. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the illegal alien invasion continues driving UP COVID-19 cases, Florida and Texas are opening antibody treatment centers to help sick residents in their states.  Elsewhere- in Louisiana- Attorney General Jeff Landry, GOP, says the New Orleans Saints Chi-Vi mandates are completely ‘unacceptable.’ In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu-related news, ex-National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster, who advised President Donald J. Trump, is warning the Pentagon to prepare for the NEXT Chi-Com pandemic before it devastates the world even worse than the Bat Flu has.
  76. 2021 Friday J: Health and Medical Alerts– The Food and Drug Administration- the FDA- plans to give the Pfizer vaccine full approval this upcoming Monday.  Elsewhere, Customs and Border Enforcement seizes 3,000 phony COVID-19 vaccine passports in Alaska, all of them from communist China.  Here’s a good one: following Barack Hussein Obama’s birthday fest last week, 74 people on Martha’s Vineyard now have COVID-19- talk about a super-spreader event.
  77. 2021 Friday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– Here are today’s stock prices: (1) Pfizer $48.70 (2) AstraZeneca $59.39 (3) Johnson & Johnson $179.50 (4) BioNTech $348.68 (5) Moderna $382.98.  The reason we present this information is so that the readers can understand WHY the Democrats and their RINO supplicants continue pushing everyone to get the vaccinations and then the boosters and to continue wearing Chi-Com-manufactured masks, possibly forever.  The answer is because politicians invest in these surefire companies because vaccine manufacturers are ineligible to be sued no matter how devastating or onerous the reactions or long-term effects are.  What a money-making scheme.  Dems pick the contracts which get loads of federal tax dollars which them come back to the Dems via campaign donations.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Friday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– Here are today’s stock prices: (1) Raytheon: $84.10 (2) General Dynamics: $197.41 (3) Boeing: $212.72 (4) Lockheed Martin: $357.24 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $363.00.  What we said above applies to national defense stocks, too.  The military-industrial complex in action.

  81. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden was close to an hour late today to give a ‘briefing’ on the disaster in Afghanistan.  Next, a new report suggests that Joe Biden is praying for ‘limited fallout from the Afghan debacle.’  Another report suggests that mentally incompetent Joe Biden will be headed off to Delaware either tonight or tomorrow morning.  The Antitrump requires his “Manchurian Candidate”-style tune-up so he can appear somewhat coherent.  At his incoherent briefing today, regime leader Joe Biden said the “U.S. will maintain laser focus on terrorists.”  Sure, Joe, whatever you say.  Terrorists are pouring across the U.S.-Mexico border as we speak.  Speaking of Joe, he says there ‘is greater danger from ISIS than from the Taliban.’  Joe also promises to bring home every American in Afghanistan who wants to come home.  He just does not know who all is there seeking exit out of the country.
  82. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price continues taking heat over his lack of preparedness and lack of transparency at State Department briefings.  The dimwit can hardly answer what he had for breakfast much less speak coherently about the regime’s disaster in Afghanistan.  Like every other face of the regime, the loser is nothing more than an empty suit.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice is seeking to overturn the conviction of Taliban traitor Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl so they can clear him of all charges.  The DOJ is also seeking to get rid of the ‘public charge’ rule enacted by the Trump administration that prohibited illegal aliens from gaining entry into the U.S. if the country would have to support them.  Good.  Just what we need, Joe- more deadbeats. 
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Political News I– A new poll from the Trafalgar Group and the Convention of States Action says that a large majority of the American people are appalled by Joe Biden’s handling of the Afghan withdrawal.  Speaking of the disaster, even Democrats are calling for hearings on Joe Biden’s messy withdrawal from the forlorn country.  Another poll released yesterday by the Morning Consult Poll says that a plurality of Americans blames Joe Biden for the disaster unfolding across the Central Asian nation and not President Donald J. Trump.  Another poll falling atop these others says that ‘less than 40-percent of the American people believe slobbering Joe Biden is running the country. 
  84. 2021 Friday R: Political News II– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says she is preparing to launch articles of impeachment against Joe Biden.  (Note- better include them for “Kooky Kamala” Harris, too).  Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, agrees with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that the ‘mess’ in Afganistan was easily ‘preventable.’ Rep. Adam Smith, DS-WA 9th congressional district, says Joe Biden’s ‘chaos remarks don’t add up.’  (Note- look for the 25th Amendment coming soon.  Poor Joe).  Elsewhere, old video from 2014 has bubbled up once again in which, Senator John McCain, RINO-AZ, says that Anthony Blinken is a ‘danger to the United States.’
  85. 2021 Friday S: Political News III– Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘defending President Donald J. Trump cost him his friendship with far-left Larry David.’  It’s his loss, Dr. Dershowitz.  In other news, freshman Senator Mark Kelly, DS-AZ, is facing scrutiny for failing to disclose investments in a Chi-Com technology company ahead of last year’s elections.  Uh-oh.  In other political news, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is coming to the Golden State to campaign for a fellow loser, Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom ahead of the recall election on September 14, 2021.  We Californians are looking forward to that.
  86. 2021 Friday T: Political News IV– Now that AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is with the angels (or…), the AFL-CIO Has elected its most diverse leadership in the history of the organization.  Liz Schuler becomes the first female president while two black gentlemen take the numbers two and three spots: Tefere Gebre becomes executive vice president and Fred Redmond becomes secretary-treasurer.  Let us hope they are NOT mob-connected.   In other news, Tucker Carlson reported that Infowars host Owen Shroyer is facing time in the D.C. slammer all because he stood on the steps of the U.S. Capitol but did not go in on January 06, 2021.  Tucker reports that the real reason he is facing trouble is because he said nasty things about Rep. Jerrold “Doughnut-Gobbling” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district, sometime last year.  IF that is all it takes, we’re all going to the gulags.
  87. 2021 Friday U: U.S. Supreme Court News I– The U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear a concealed carry gun Second Amendment case next month; one the Biden regime hopes will allow them to strip Americans of the rights to carry legally owned firearms concealed with a permit.  We hope the court will rule favorably for Americans’ Constitutional rights.

  91. 2021 Friday Y: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News II– Capitol Hill Police Officer Lt. Michael Leroy Byrd[xx] is breathing easier this evening as he has been exonerated from all possible charges for the shooting death of U.S. Air Force veteran and patriot Ashli Babbitt.  (Note- everyone knows “Mumbles” Pelosi had him cleared).  Meanwhile, the new FALSE FLAG operation, the so-called bomber outside the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., yesterday, Floyd Ray Roseberry, has been charged with a variety of crimes.
  92. 2021 Friday Z: Big Tech News– Yesterday, the Federal Trade Commission filed a new monopoly lawsuit against Facebook.  Speaking of Facebook, they have now unveiled their new ‘virtual workplace’ app complete with avatars.  What a load of crap.   Meanwhile, the Anti-Defamation League is urging Twitter to ban the Taliban leaders from its site.  President Trump is still banned from the platform, but all the Anti-Semites and jihadists can say whatever the hell they want.  This is frigging crazy.

  98. 2022 Saturday: Friends, many interested observers of the 2022 Mid-Terms are beginning to get frustrated with Senate Republicans.  I mean, why aren’t they out there fighting to help Ron Johnson retain his seat?  Why have they left J.D. Vance, Blake Masters, and Dr. Oz out to pasture?  I mean, I would have voted for Jim Lamon in Arizona because Masters seems to be an odd choice just as someone else might have been better than Dr. Oz.  Still, they are who they are and the money must begin flowing into their coffers now.  It is clear that Senate Minority ‘Leader’ “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell really does not want to win the Senate back if these are to be his new senators because he knows that IF they are, he most likely won’t be re-elected ‘majority leader.’  He is, after all, one of the worst leaders the GOP has ever had much like John Boehner and Paul Ryan were losers in the House.  We need to elect Republicans willing to fight on behalf of the American people, not for the Chi-Coms, the illegal aliens, and the corporations.  How about fighting for us, Mitch?  Let’s fight to neuter Joe Biden ASAP.  We still have 81 days so let’s put them to effective use.  Just dreaming, I guess.  Like I said yesterday, we must consign ourselves to the new global power structure- it’s better to be with them than against them.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Today’s rendition is the “Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Album,” an album that came out on March 23, 2016.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[ii] Perhaps one day we will promote the music of the Seeds, the Electric Prunes, and the Amboy Dukes.  We should have done these bands around the same time we did the Strawberry Alarm Clock.

[iii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

[iv] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep, but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[v] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[vi] We promoted the music of Led Zeppelin- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through vocalist Paul Rodgers of both Free and Bad Company on Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope you will check them all out.

[vii] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[viii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[ix] 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)

[xx] We believe Officer Byrd is a man who has ‘misplaced’ her service arm on at least two occasions.  We suspect- and this is speculation- that Nancy Pelosi OWNS him because of this and that he was told on January 6, 2021, to SHOOT someone and Ms. Babbitt was the one who took the bullet.  In our eyes, IF he is indeed the officer who shot an unarmed woman who did not threaten him, he will forever be a murderer. 

231. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, AUGUST 19, 2022

It might be time to begin playing ball and soon because this November, well, things may not change for the good. It’s clear the Senate Republicans are not interested in regaining power. Go figure. “Cocaine Mitch” didn’t earn that nickname for nothing you know. We hope by next year we will be able to reconfigure our blog so that it meets the requirements of the contemporary ruling class.

  64. 2018 Sunday: In a New York Times article, the author claims that one of Jeffrey Epstein’s many accusers- in this case, Asia Argento- assaulted a 17-year-old minor.  Say it ain’t so!  Meanwhile, in an interview between President Donald J.

  67. 2020 Wednesday A:  Due to a spike in new Xi Jinping Bat Flu cases in just nine days, Notre Dame (150 new Wuhan Virus cases) announces the closure of its campus while the University of North Carolina, faced with 222 new cases, an upward tick of 17.2-percent, also announces it closure for the immediate future.   In Europe, Spain reports 3,700 new cases of the Kung Flu after keeping their country on lockdown for three months.  Seeing this number of new cases on the first day the country opened is astounding.  So much for doing business with the Chi-Coms.
  68. 2020 Wednesday B: Economic news for today is great: Target reports profits are up by an astounding 80-percent while Apple becomes the first U.S. company to hit a market cap of $2 trillion.  It took Apple 38 years to hit $1 trillion and then just 2 years to attain the astoundingly high number of $2 trillion.  And people thought Tim Cook, Apple CEO, lacked what it took to continue the work of Steve Jobs. 
  69. 2020 Wednesday C: Following U.S. tire manufacturer Goodyear Tires banning its employees from wearing MAGA hats, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet urging people not to buy the company’s tires and other products.  Goodyear backtracks really quick and tries to clarify what it said.  It looks like employees can wear MAGA hats if they so choose.    Speaking of the Trump administration, Chief of Staff Mark Meadows echoes statements made by Dr. Tony Fauci and other medical professionals that ‘if it’s okay to protest in the streets, it’s okay to vote in person.’  We wholeheartedly agree with this view.   Finally, U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr reports more than 1,000 arrests in Operation Legend in which, the federal government partners with local law enforcement officers to take down violent scumbags.  Meanwhile, the dragnet is on for Marquise Love, a BLM supporter who stoved in the head of a passing motorist whose only crime is that he tried to come to the aid of a tranny in Portland, Oregon, whom thugs were beating and robbing on Sunday night in the 80th straight night of violent protests and riots.  Find this POS and beat his ass.
  70. 2020 Wednesday D:  Here is the lineup of NOTABLE speakers at the Democratic Convention in Milwaukee, WI, albeit most of them virtual: (1) former first lady, senator, and secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton; (2) former President Barack Hussein Obama; (3) House Speaker Nancy Pelosi; (4) Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, D-MA; (5) former Rep. Gabby Giffords, D-AZ; (6) Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, D-NM; (7) Gov. Tony Evers, D-WI; and Sen. Kamala Harris, VP nominee, D-CA.  It looks to be ‘another exciting night.’  Speaking of Democrats, former FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty in federal court today for tampering with evidence.  He is the first member of the communist Chinese-Democratic Party coup against Donald J. Trump.  Prison for you and loss of the right to practice law.  Stay tuned for more…
  71. 2020 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has suspended or canceled three bilateral agreements with Hong Kong since the Chi-Coms on the mainland have reneged on the guarantees they made with the citizens of the former British Crown Colony.   Some of the agreements deal with tax exemptions from international shipping and extradition treaties, making the Beijing bullies angry yet again.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms and their criminality, here are today’s stats for the novel coronavirus they purposely sent around the planet:
  72. 2020 Wednesday F: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 22,218,441 confirmed cases, UP by 244,048 cases, 782,883 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,726 deaths, and 14,156,538 confirmed recoveries, UP by 222,006 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,605,858 confirmed cases, UP by 42,212 new cases, 174,963 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,250 new deaths, and 2,852,221 confirmed recoveries, UP by 35,753 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they will not- corrupt MF-ers).
  73. 2020 Wednesday G: COVID-19 Statistics next, 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: 638,831 confirmed cases, 11,523 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,349 confirmed cases, forty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,921 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 68,264 confirmed cases, 1,801 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us take a look at one more state, Colorado: 53,901 confirmed number of cases, 1,900 confirmed number of deaths, but like other Blue State locales, NO mention of recoveries in the mile-high state.
  74. 2020 Wednesday H: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals- here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,692.88, DOWN 85.19 points (-0.31%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,146.46, DOWN 64.38 points (-0.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,374.85, DOWN 14.93 points (-0.44%).  The price of GOLD is $1,943.70 per troy oz., -26.60 (-1.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.96 per troy ounce, -0.38 (-1.39%).  The price of PLATINUM is $947.40 per troy oz, -8.90 (-0.93%) while the price of COPPER is $3.00 per pound, -0.0255 (-0.84%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.78 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.35%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.92 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.

[xii]  
  76. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 324,355 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 79,723 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiii]   
  78. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 970,606 confirmed cases, 6,752 confirmed deaths, and 902,220 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Sint Maarten, 184th country on the list: 3,313 cases of the virus, 17 confirmed deaths and 2,924 confirmed recoveries. [xiv]     
  79. 2021 Thursday D: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,894.12, DOWN 66.57 points (-0.19%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,541.79, UP 15.87 points (+0.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,005.80, UP 5.53 points (+0.13%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.03 per barrel, +0.34 (+0.53%).  The price of GOLD is $1,786.90 per troy oz., +3.70 (+0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $23.26 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $971.50 per troy oz, +0.30 (+0.03%) while the price of COPPER is $4.06 per pound, +0.02 (+0.47%).

    Rupee, a buck equal 13.81 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, one dollar equals 10,225.00 of theirs. [xviii]        
  80. 2021 Thursday 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 dropped to $4.403 per gallon, $2.999 in Florida, $4.088 in Hawaii, and $3.909 in Washington state. [xix]    Let us look at one other location- Ohio: $2.995.  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- Andorra: $5.489 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,660,954,261,668 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  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 Islands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216 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.
  81. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman assured reporters that all seeking to make it into Hamid Karzai International Airport will have ‘safe passage.’  Elsewhere, protests continue around Afghanistan as the human fecal matter of the Taliban continue consolidating power.  In Jalalabad, the Taliban had to shoot into crowds of angry protesters.  What a disaster.  In other parts of the collapse, French and British troops are crisscrossing Kabul to bring their citizens to the airport for evacuation while the U.S. continues to claim, ‘we can’t go outside the airport to help our people.’  Meanwhile, a former female Afghan pilot who managed to get out of the imploding disaster says that the ‘repression of women will begin very soon.’  Speaking of Afghan women, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, asked a very piercing question today: ‘where is “Kooky Kamala” Harris on ‘women’s rights in Afghanistan?”  Answer: nowhere to be found.  Next, Joe Biden said something incredibly stupid when he claimed that the ‘Taliban is different today now that Osama Bin Laden is dead.’  Huh?  Finally, Rep. Jason Crow, D-CO 6th congressional district, ripped into absent Joe Biden over the absurdity of the ‘evacuation’ in Afghanistan.
  82. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must.  Today is Day No. 148 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 55th day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $566,730,229.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $251,525,690,195.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,660,454.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,656,452.  (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).
  83. 2021 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– U.S. Border Patrol Agents have sought to volunteer to serve in Afghanistan.  Next, a judge slapped down the White House’s narrowing of the categories the U.S. Border Patrol can detain and deport which will give ICE more leeway in crisscrossing the country to scoop up illegal aliens and begin getting them the hell out of our country.  NOW.
  84. 2021 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– When new Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett arrives in Washington, D.C., to meet with the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear next week, the topic of discussion will be the U.S. returning to the failed ‘nuclear talks with the Iranian criminal regime.’  We hope the Israelis are going to nuke the mullahs before the camel thieves in Tehran go nuclear.  Meanwhile, after the Chi-Coms slap a 40-percent capacity on U.S. airliners flying into communist China, the U.S. Department of Transportation slaps a similar passenger cut on all Chi-Com airliners flying into the United States.  (Note- a new Chi-Com ‘rap song’ (you know this has to be good) contains lyrics that say the Xi Jinping Bat Flu virus came from a ‘U.S. military lab.’  What a loser).  Next, we learned today that former President Ashraf Ghani removed $169 million from Afghanistan when he jumped ship earlier in the week.
  85. 2021 Thursday J: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Chi-Coms and the Russians are rubbing their hands in glee now that the Taliban control all the mineral mines in the country.  Captives of the Taliban will be down inside the mines doing the bidding of the Chi-Coms and Russkies.  Poor bastards.  Speaking of the Russians, due to their internecine contacts throughout Afghanistan, Moscow knew of the looming collapse whereas U.S. intel apparently had no clue whatsoever as to what was coming.  Wow.  Speaking of the Afghan collapse, another U.S. poll says that 70-percent of the American people believe that Joe Biden F****d up the Afghan withdrawal.
  86. 2021 Thursday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Three U.S. Senators- Angus King, I-ME, Roger Wicker, R-MS, and John Hickenlooper, DS-CO, have tested positive for the ‘VID.  All three of these politicians are 100-percent fully vaccinated and yet, they have come down with the Chi-Vi.  Famed journalist Alex Berenson told Tucker Carlson that the vaccines spike antibodies in the recipients which makes the receivers almost ‘invulnerable’ towards the virus but ONLY for a short while.  Then, immunity falls, and the patient becomes vulnerable again.  It appears we will have to get ‘boosters’ every other month which is frigging crazy.  NO way we are getting the vaccines to begin with, no way.
  87. 2021 Thursday L: Health And Medical Alerts– Ex-head of Purdue Pharma Richard Sackler denies the company played a role in the opioid crisis.
  88. 2021 Thursday M: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Several universities around the country are fining unvaccinated students to try to force them in line.  In other news, that slobbering dimwit Joe Biden is demanding that ALL Americans rush out and get COVID-19 booster shots even before the Food and Drug Administration has given them approval.  Joe, STFU.  Oh, Joe and Dr. Jill are going to get their booster shots very, very soon.  In other news, California gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder vows that IF elected, he will immediately ban all mask and Chi-Vi vaccine mandates issued by Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  Speaking of fascists, the TSA is extending its mask mandates for all passengers on airliners until January 2022.  Next, Orange County, Florida, school boards are fighting the ban on mask mandates imposed by “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis.  Meanwhile, Michigan lawmakers are battling extremely unpopular Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer’s attempts at imposing a Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio-style system of vaccine passports to go from one business to another.
  89. 2021 Thursday N: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $48.76 (2) AstraZeneca $59.19 (3) Johnson & Johnson $178.50 (4) BioNTech $331.81 (5) Moderna $375.53.  As we say, IF one cares to know WHY there is this BIG PUSH on everyone MUST get vaccinated, then get the booster shots, and continue wearing masks even while swimming in the pool, having sex, or alone in the Alaskan wilderness, all one need know is that our leaders- both right and left- invest their money in BIG PHARMA stocks.  That is all one need know.
  90. 2021 Thursday O: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.03 (2) General Dynamics: $195.49 (3) Boeing: $212.09 (4) Lockheed Martin: $354.03 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $361.25.  Likewise, even though it may not be popular, Democrats and Republicans alike invest in military-industrial complex stocks because the government directs money to them via contracts and money comes back to them in the form of donations, the classic money-go-round that the Kinks once sang about.
  91. 2021 Thursday P: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Pennsylvania legislature is demanding an election audit of the 2020 Elections.
  92. 2021 Thursday Q: Joe Biden News I– A new Rasmussen poll says that 17-percent of Joe Biden voters now wish they had voted for President Donald J. Trump instead.  We believe that and what is more, we suspect the number is far higher than that, perhaps around 47-57 percent.  Joe would not survive ‘re-election’[xxii] if the vote were held today.  Speaking of old Joe, he is returning to Delaware this afternoon for a long weekend at home.  Guess he must undergo another “Manchurian Candidate” (1961)-style treatment so he can remain somewhat coherent.  Also, no one seems to know where Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is or White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain.  What the f*** is going on?
  93. 2021 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is going to release its new plan with which to better vet and process the millions of illegal aliens trying to swamp the country.  Next, the regime is going to nominate Charles F. “Chuck” Sams III to become the next head of the U.S. National Park Service.  Sams is a tribal leader living in Oregon.
  94. 2021 Thursday S: Political News I– Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, blasts Joe Biden’s U.N. Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield for ‘going easy on the Taliban.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Dan Meuser, R-PA 9th congressional district, continues banging the drum as to how the United States left nearly 200 Black Hawk helicopters in Afghanistan?  Meanwhile, outrage continues to grow over the dunce who is the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark A. Milley, and the stupid comments he made yesterday.  Look, this loser should be busted down to buck private and sent to monitor weather at the South Pole.  Talk about a stooge for Beijing.  (Note- the Pentagon claims to have airlifted 7,000 civilians out of Afghanistan.  Question: ours or theirs?)
  95. 2021 Thursday T: Political News II– Fifty U.S. senators are imploring the absent Biden regime to get our Afghan allies out of Afghanistan ASAP.  Meanwhile, as Afghanistan continues down the path of becoming the worst U.S. military and diplomatic disaster since the fall of Saigon in 1975, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, adds her voice to the chorus calling for the resignation of loopy old Joe Biden.   Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, says that ‘real time hearings on the snafu in Afghanistan must occur now.’ 
  96. 2021 Thursday U: Political News III– Meghan McCain, usually a pain in the ass, said something funny today: ‘Joe Biden is like Jimmy Carter on acid.’  Amen.  Hilarious.  Next, crazed liberal Larry David was screaming at famed legal scholar, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, over his ties to President Donald J. Trump.  Larry, sod off.  In other news, we learned today that the Biden regime shut down President Donald J. Trump’s “Crisis Response Bureau” within the U.S. Department of State that was designed to help in, uh, emergencies like what we are now witnessing in Afghanistan.  The Antitrump strikes again.  What is wrong with these losers?
  97. 2021 Thursday V: Federal and State Court News– A U.S. Court of Appeals upholds the Lone Star State’s new abortion ban on abortions AFTER a fetal heartbeat is first detected.   Elsewhere, Big Apple businesses are taking pot-smoking Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio to court over his harsh Chi-Vi vaccine passport restrictions for ALL businesses.  Elsewhere, a federal judge approves the bankruptcy case for the Boy Scouts of America that will see them fork over $850 million to pay off the massive number of sexual assault cases lodged against the once-proud organization.  Elsewhere, a judge in Philadelphia ruled that famed explorer Christopher Columbus’ statue can continue to stand.  Look for Antifa to tear it down soon.  
  98. 2021 Thursday W: Miscellaneous News I– A new Gallup poll says, ‘fewer Americans are imbibing alcohol.’  (Amigos, I contend they are using more medicinal pot- El Chilote).  Another poll says that a large number of Americans do not believe that “Kooky Kamala” Harris is qualified to be president.  (Note- heck, most Californians do not believe she was qualified to be a U.S. senator but at least we got her the hell out of our state.  El Chilote).
  99. 2021 Thursday X: Business News– Swedish scientists create the first ‘fossil fuel free’ steel. 
  100. 2021 Thursday Y: Economic News– Last week, 348,000 Americans filed for first-time jobless benefits.
  101. 2021 Thursday Z: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Florida prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for a POS scumbag who murdered a 26-year-old police officer, Jason Raynor.  Elsewhere, Capitol Hill police evacuated Cannon House congressional office building because some dumb ass was sitting outside in a truck claiming to have ‘explosive material.’  After five hours, he gave up and the police took him into custody.  Watch House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, resurrect ‘Fort Pelosi’ and demand that a division of U.S. Army troops garrison the Capitol at all times.  We suspect that this is yet another false flag operation initiated by the drooling speaker so she can clamp down on the capitol. 
  102. 2021 Thursday AA: Mass Shootings News– In Frankfurt, Indiana, one employee at the NHK Seating of America shot two fellow female coworkers outside in the parking lot.  Awaiting further details on the victims and the mope is in custody.
  103. 2021 Thursday BB: California State News– California continues to burn.  The Dixie Fire in northern California has now consumed 662,000 acres and is only 35-percent contained.  What a disaster, loser Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom needs to lose his office just because of poor forest management and dumb ass decisions as to how PG&E must work hard at going GREEN instead of protecting its transmission lines by putting them underground.
  104. 2021 Thursday CC: Sports News I– This is strange, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation is joining the probe into sexual assault allegations against Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.  We didn’t know the FBI investigated allegations of sexual assault.  If they do, they should be investigating “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden, the Groper-in-Chief.
  105. 2021 Thursday DD: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Dane County, Wisconsin, Sheriff Kalvin Barrett announced today that the county will no longer call ‘inmates’ as such but will refer to them as ‘residents’ or as ‘people in our care’ so as not to stigmatize the criminals.  Sheriff Barrett, why don’t you stop inmates raping and beating other inmates?  We bet they would prefer that to the stupid name change.
  106. 2022 Friday: Friends, we are living in bizarre times.  It appears that we have one party aided by allies in the other who want China to become the global superpower.  It appears they believe that things will be much better for citizens of the world if Beijing is the one calling the shots.  Who knows?  Perhaps the American people will be akin to what the Greeks were to the Ancient Romans: slaves, albeit cultured ones, whose ethos the Romans adopted in many ways such as Greek becoming the upper-crust language, as educators, and as athletes and performers.  The Chinese love our basketball (while despising the black players), our movies (as long as they reflect what’s important to Beijing), and our technology which they readily buy or steal.  As far as I am concerned, it is possible the battle could already be over, we just don’t recognize it yet.  Still, when the Chinese physically arrive on our shores, a lot of these mixed-up young people believing themselves to be a gender opposite than the one at birth- along with the gays- are either going to end up in re-education camps or have their heads slapped atop the chopping block.  Our culture is polluted and by design.  The ones at the top will become the new nomenklatura while everyone else will become cogs in the machine– thank you, Pink Floyd.  It might be time to begin playing ball and soon because this November, well, things may not change for the good.  It’s clear the Senate Republicans are not interested in regaining power.  Go figure.  “Cocaine Mitch” didn’t earn that nickname for nothing you know.  We hope by next year we will be able to reconfigure our blog so that it meets the requirements of the contemporary ruling class.  (Note: it will be fascinating to see if the joint military exercises being held in Russia with the Chinese will see Chinese troops introduced into Ukraine.  After all, Nazi Germany had to bail out Fascist Italy time and again).  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys is yet another archival release.  “The Beach Boys’ Party Uncovered and Unplugged” is an extended expansion of their earlier ‘party album’ from back in the day which we will now revisit for your edification: The next album by the Beach Boys was filler of sorts what with it being an album of covers done with acoustic instruments and vocals.  “Beach Boys Party” came out on November 08, 1965 and was received well even though the times they were a-changing all-right.  The lineup features Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals and saxophones), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), and Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), and Bruce Johnston (vocals and bass).  Brian Wilson had by this time suffered his first mental breakdown due to the constant stress of being forced by his family members to write hit songs and commercial albums as well as nonstop touring and friction with his abusive father Murray.  He also was experimenting with the popular drugs of the time so he could raise the level of his songwriting which was to come.  We presented this album back on May 22, 2022, a Thursday, by our recollection.  This one features 81 cuts, all of which are a pleasure to behold- audio-wise.  Great album for an increasingly contentious time in the history of the world which is why we encourage everyone to seek it out and enjoy.  You will be glad you did.

230. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 18, 2022

2022 Thursday: Rep. Liz Cheney- a woman we lovingly have labeled “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney due to her obsessive-compulsive desire to destroy President Donald J. Trump- cannot read the writing on the wall. The voters of Wyoming said, ‘NO MORE, go the hell away.’ At least that pathetic little piece of crap Adam Kinzinger from Illinois had sense enough NOT even to run for another term.

Trump says, ‘yes, the U.S. wants to buy Greenland from the Danes.’  The Danes were all offended at his offer. 
  54. 2020 Tuesday: The NYPD reports that requests for retirement benefits are up by 50-percent.  Go figure.  Next reports released today that the Chi-Com backed (or so we believe) opioid epidemic in the United States has cost the United States more than $630 billion since 2007.  It should be clear that communist China is waging an ‘opium war’ against the United States which means we should do the same to them.  Next, optimism is rising in the United States with the news that new home construction increased by 22.6-percent.  Meanwhile, today being the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment that gives women the right to vote, President Donald J.

  55. 2020 Tuesday A: At the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, WI, the Dems have a massive lineup of speakers: (1) Former Acting U.S. Attorney General Sally Yates; (2) Senate Minority Leader Chuckie Schumer, N.Y.; (3) Former Secretary of State John F. “Lurch” Kerry; (4) Dingbat Rep. Alexandria “Sandy Cortez” Ocasio-Cortez, N.Y.; (5) Rep. Lisa Blunt Rochester, D-DE; (6) Former president and close Jeffrey Epstein friend Bill Clinton; (7) former President Jimmy Carter; and (8) Dr. Jill Biden, JOBI’s wife.  Then, the Dems have an army of keynote speakers, the ‘future of the party.’  Here we go: (9) Stacey Abrams- disgruntled loser; (10) Rep. Connor Lamb, D-PA; (11) Rep. Colin Allred, D-TX; (12) State Sen. Raamesh Akbari, D-TN.; (13) Rep. Brendan Boyle, D-PA; (14) State Sen. Yvanna Cancela, D-NV.; (15) former State Rep.

  56. 2020 Tuesday B: The National Border Patrol Council today endorsed President Donald J. Trump as other law enforcement organizations have and will continue doing.  There is no other choice in this upside-down world.  Meanwhile, a POS terrorist named Marquise Love underwent arrest today in Portland, Oregon, for the savage assault on a motorist whom the mob dragged out of the car on Sunday night, beat, kicked, and stomped before Mr. Love ran up and did a roundhouse kick into the head of the victim, a man named Adam Haner.
  57. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 21,974,393 confirmed cases, UP by 234,892 cases, 776,157 confirmed deaths, DOWN by 84 (yesterday, sources reported 776,241) deaths, and 13,934,532 confirmed recoveries, UP by 231,569 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,563,646 confirmed cases, UP by 74,883 new cases, 173,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,567 new deaths, and 2,816,468 confirmed recoveries, UP by 53,329 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least thirty million Americans have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true.
  58. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics next, 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: 632,667 confirmed cases, 11,342 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 5,215 confirmed cases, forty confirmed deaths, and 1,868 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 67,721 confirmed cases, 1,785 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us look at one more state, the Empire State: 426,571 confirmed number of cases, 32,833 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 honest numbers you foul-smelling piece of cesspool grime, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.
  59. 2020 Tuesday E: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals- here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,778.07, DOWN 66.84 points (-0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,210.84, UP 81.12 points (+0.73%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,389.78, UP 7.79 points (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $2,013.50 per troy oz., +0.40 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $27.92 per troy ounce, -0.155 (-0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $977.00 per troy oz, +1.60 (+0.16%) while the price of COPPER is $2.97 per pound, -0.0005 (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $42.61 per barrel, -0.28 (-0.65%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.92 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.84 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  60. 2020 Tuesday F: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka REAL name Sandy Cortez, seconds the NOMINATION OF SEN. BERNIE SANDERS OF VERMONT FOR PRESIDENT.  She just spit in the face of Nancy Pelosi and of the Old Guard.  Wow.  We now believe what we heard to be so is so, that AOC is supporting the far-left challenger of Nancy Pelosi in November, Muslim attorney Shahid Buttar- you heard it here first.  Will the Squad follow in AOC’s footsteps?  Finally, the organizers conduct the roll call, and the result is Joe Biden (JOBI) winning 3,627 delegates and Sen. Bernie Sanders winning 1,151.  Congratulations, Joe, you have wanted this for decades.  Good for you.
  61.  2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 209,977,126 confirmed cases, +651,987, 4,403,271 confirmed deaths, +9,859 and 188,144,233 confirmed recoveries, +258,258.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 38,016,008 confirmed cases, UP 130,753 from yesterday’s reporting, 641,080 confirmed deaths, UP 1,007, [ix] and 30,324,754 confirmed recoveries, UP 35,473.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 322,323 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 81,755 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xii]     
  65. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: Thanks to Joe Biden being the WORST president in U.S. history- even worse than foreign-born Barack Hussein Obama and the ‘peanut farmer’- DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,960.69, DOWN 382.59 points (-1.08%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,525.91, DOWN 130.27 points (-0.89%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,000.27, DOWN 47.81 points (-1.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.54 per barrel, +4.90 (+0.27%).  The price of GOLD is $1,789.20 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $23.49 per troy ounce, +0.07 (+0.29%).  The price of PLATINUM is $995.00 per troy oz, -1.40 (-0.14%) while the price of COPPER is $4.11 per pound, -0.01 (-0.19%).

  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 $4.405 per gallon, $3.006 in Florida, $4.091 in Hawaii, and $3.906 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other location- New York: $3.224.  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- South Korea: $5.487 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,656,592,489,318 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 Hong Kong, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Cayman Islands with $223 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: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As Joe Biden sits spanking the wank at Camp David, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is going to host a meeting of the G7 nations next week (a little late, there, Mr. PM) to discuss the calamity befalling Afghanistan.  Next, as Afghanistan continues sliding into the abyss, the Australian military was able to rescue twenty-six people from the jaws of the Taliban.  Moving on, exiled Afghan President Ashraf Ghani says he left his country to prevent unnecessary bloodshed, not to steal the country’s treasury.  Meanwhile, he plans to remain in the United Arab Emirates.  In other Afghan news, on the same day the Taliban said, ‘we will respect women’s rights,’ they shot dead a woman in the streets who was not wearing a burqa.  Next, protests in Jalalabad turn violent as the Taliban continues consolidating power.
  68. 2021 Wednesday G: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News II– The U.S. State Department announced today that IT CANNOT secure the road into Hamid Karzai International Airport so that Americans can evacuate the collapsing country.  “Shelter in place” is what they are telling American citizens.  Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, says that the ‘Taliban are extremely emboldened by Joe Biden’s failures.’  Next, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and chairperson of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley addressed reporters today.  Neither one is very illustrious but the political general- Milley- lied bald-faced and unabashedly to reporters when he claimed- get this- ‘the U.S. didn’t see this coming.’  The liar also says that ‘U.S. troops CANNOT help Americans make it to the airport to escape the country.’  What a POS.  Meanwhile, Breitbart London editor Raheem Kassan told Newsmax that ‘Joe Biden halted President Donald J. Trump’s crisis response’ program in Afghanistan.
  69. 2021 Wednesday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Amigos, hoy dia is the 148th day since El Jefe Joe Biden appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be his ‘border czar’ as well as her 54th day since her sole visit to the border.  Tragic.  Next, here are the numbers as compiled by OAN daily.  First, here is the cost for this day alone of caring for the cast-offs of the world: $535,997,088.  Second, here is the horrible cost for just this year of caring for the invaders: $251,494,957,056.  Third, here are the numbers of the illegals that have made it into our country this year: 2,577,622.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative effort for the illegal alien invaders running amok in our country: 36,577,620.  (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). [xx] 
  70. 2021 Wednesday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster, cross-border shootings from Mexico on U.S. Border Patrol agents are on the increase as the cartels continue ‘feeling their oats’ with the lawlessness afflicting the region.  Next, a new poll says that a vast majority of the American people favor the immigration policies of President Donald J. Trump compared to the lack of any of the Biden regime.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is trying to slash the numbers of ‘asylum cases’ along the southern border.  This means look for MORE illegal aliens coming to a town or city near you.
  71. 2021 Wednesday J: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Chi-Coms are deploying numerous warships to the Taiwan Straits and are telling Taipei that “Joe Biden is not coming to protect you.”  The Biden regime then vowed to support Taiwan after the Chi-Coms said what they said.  (Note- we do not believe Joe Biden even knows WHAT Taiwan is much less WHERE it is).  Elsewhere, the Russians were testing a prototype military transport plane that sadly went down, killed both pilots and the flight engineer outside Moscow.
  72. 2021 Wednesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Chicago to bring back indoor mask mandates for ALL citizens.   Next, Joe Biden is going to require that ALL NURSING HOME STAFF must be fully vaccinated, or they cannot work.  Elsewhere, Disneyworld tweaked its mask policy to allow visitors to go without masks when outdoors in their theme parks.  Next, unvaccinated students at Quinnipiac University face fines and loss of internet privileges.  Finally, parents in Louisiana are rebelling against Governor John Bel Edwards’ harsh mask measures in the state’s schools.  Stand and fight, people, stand and fight.
  73. 2021 Wednesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $49.33 (2) AstraZeneca $59.44 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.26 (4) BioNTech $363.99 (5) Moderna $398.80.  The reason we compile these numbers for our readers is so that you can understand WHY there is this ongoing push for everyone to get vaccinated, get vaccinated again, and now get flipping booster shots, thus, the politicians invest in these companies.  When the federal government buys vaccines and distributes them free not just to the American people but to illegal frigging aliens and to countries around the world that hate our guts, the profit levels soar by as much as 1,000-percent.  The stock dividends pour millions of dollars into the pockets of every politician invested in these companies.  It is your classic money-go-round, all money leads back to our political leaders of both parties.  As if right on cue, U.S. officials are calling for ALL Americans to begin getting booster shots in September, eight months after their second vaccination, so as to ‘protect them’ from the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.
  74. 2021 Wednesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $85.48 (2) General Dynamics: $196.60 (3) Boeing: $219.09 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.68 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $363.16.  Ditto what we said in the prior segment.  Politicians decry the companies producing the ‘weapons of war’ yet invest heavily in them.  This is a shame, and all elected leaders should undergo automatic banning from investing in companies that win big fat government contracts.  
  75. 2021 Wednesday N: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  The FBI is joining an election machine hacking probe in the great state of Colorado.  Meanwhile, Georgia approves of a Fulton County election audit where loads of election fraud occurred last year.
  76. 2021 Wednesday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Regarding the disaster ongoing in Afghanistan, President Donald J. Trump says our nation has ‘never been so humiliated as it now is.’  President Trump had much more to say about the usurper living in the White House, senile old fool that the invader is: “Joe Biden destroyed respect for the U.S. by abandoning Afghanistan in a mess and it makes the country much more vulnerable than ever.”  The President’s son, Donald J. Trump Jr. told Newsmax that the ‘Taliban waited for a weakling to be in the White House before they did what they did.’
  77. 2021 Wednesday P: Joe Biden News I– As Afghanistan worsens by the minute, Joe Biden’s ‘once HIGH (we do not believe this) approval ratings went from around 54-percent to 43-percent.  We doubt he ever was above 45-percent once he took the oath and opened the southern border to the millions of illegal alien invaders. [xxi]  Joe Biden told ABC News that ‘chaos was unavoidable in withdrawing from Afghanistan’ (and that everything is President Donald J. Trump’s fault).  Joe Biden also says that the U.S. military is going to relocate tens of thousands of Afghan ‘refugees’ to the following states: Texas, Wisconsin, and Virginia.  None of them are undergoing any type of vetting, however.  Joe Biden also is inviting the new prime minister of Israel to visit the White House as the relationship between the U.S. and the world’s sole Jewish state is fraying.
  78. 2021 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is allocating $500 million to help Afghan refugees get out of Afghanistan even as more than 40,000 Americans are trapped within the hellhole.  In other Biden regime news, loser “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces she has NO PLANS of not going overseas on her first trip abroad to Vietnam and Singapore even as the Afghanistan debacle continues to implode.  Moving on, Joe Biden is going to war against various school systems around the country.  Any school district that won’t permit trannys- i.e., chicks with dicks- from playing with the girls will face the wrath of the Biden regime.  Likewise, any school with a mask ban mandate now is going to have to contend with the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division (WTF?).  This is crazy.
  79. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News I– Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, is taking his Freedom Fest on the road.  He says the tour is about positive messaging and fun opportunities for the GOP.  Next, Rep. Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says there ‘MUST be an Afghanistan commission in the House to probe this unmitigated disaster.’  Amen.  Moving on, Vice President Mike Pence says that ‘Joe Biden’s retreat from Afghanistan is a reckless retreat.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that ‘any novice can see that Afghanistan is a mess.’
  80. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News II– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi continues to show her mind is becoming Jell-O when the nonagenarian senile politician said that ‘leaving equipment behind is what happens when there is a military withdrawal.’[xxii]  Saying this alone means she should undergo forced removal from office NOW and possible incarceration in the D.C. gulags.  Regarding this mummified loser, a new Morning Consult poll says that the border crisis and the collapse of Afghanistan have overshadowed the drive to push through the infrastructure bill.   
  81. 2021 Wednesday T: Political News III– The U.S. Department of Justice announced today that the Missouri gun laws are ‘unconstitutional.’  F-off, DOJ.  Next, Miranda Devine, New York Post columnist, told Tucker Carlson tonight on his program that Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district, did indeed marry her brother to remain in the country.  DNA shows that her brother and she have a 99.999998-percent match thus she committed fraud on the U.S. government.  There are NO statute of limitations on immigration fraud.   Finally, nutrition company REDCON1 is severing ties with RINO loser Arnold Schwarzenegger over his stupid remark, “Screw your freedoms” when it comes to the right NOT to wear a mask.  Good.  Arnold should go back to where the f**k he came from.
  82. 2021 Wednesday U: Political News IV– Lara Logan told Tucker Carlson on Fox News tonight that there is NO way that the U.S. government did not know what was coming in Afghanistan.  The Taliban live in neighboring Pakistan so there is no way that the U.S. failed to notice the military buildup there nor any reason as to WHY they didn’t begin bombing the border crossings where they flooded into the country.  (Note- is it possible that the Biden regime gave the Taliban the ‘go-ahead’ to invade the country and subjugate it?)
  83. 2021 Wednesday V: U.S. House of Representatives News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is fighting tooth and nail to lure vulnerable moderate Democrats into supporting the ‘infrastructure bill,’ i.e., the $1.3 trillion money pit.  Most of these Democrats recall what happened to their predecessors who voted for Obamacare back in 2009-2010, they went down in droves in the 2010 Mid-Term Elections as well as in 2012 (except for President Barack Hussein Obama), and again in the 2014 Mid-Term Elections.  Vote for it, losers, vote for it.  Speaking of the nonagenarian, addle-brained House speaker, she is also trying to get ‘bipartisan support’ for her election-theft bill, the so-called “John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act,” the one originally called the “For the People Act.”  This old coot believes she can steal all future elections if she can convince enough dummies in both parties to support this criminal crap.
  84. 2021 Wednesday W: Economic News– Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell says it is ‘unclear as to what effect the COVID-19 delta variant will have on the U.S. and global economies.’  Next, retail sales for the month of July dropped by more than 1.1-percent due to COVID-19 lockdowns, restrictions, mandates, and fears.   
  85. 2021 Wednesday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– A new Rasmussen poll says that 70-percent of the American people believe violent crime in the country is getting out of control.
  86. 2021 Wednesday Y: Big Tech News– Although Twitter and other social media platforms controlled by the leftists still ban President Donald J. Trump, the Taliban has free run to spew hate and bile on Twitter.  Allah f**king Akbar! 
  87. 2021 Wednesday Z: National Security News– Customs and Border Protection confiscated a sizeable amount of FAKE Chi-Com-made DEA and FBI badges in Chicago.  Elsewhere, U.S. diplomats in Germany are the latest to be hit by the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome.’
  88. 2021 Wednesday AA: Human-Caused Disaster News– The Dixie Fire in northern California is out of control burning 54,000 acres within 24 hours.  The residents of Susanville are preparing to flee as the flames continue racing closer.  Meanwhile, Pacific Gas & Electric announced today that in anticipation of the out-of-control firestorm are cutting power to 50,000 homes and businesses.
  89. 2021 Wednesday BB: Natural Disasters News– The death toll from last week’s 7.2-magnitude earthquake that slammed Haiti continues to rise what with 2,000-plus deaths.
  90. 2021 Wednesday CC: War on Terror News-Terrorism News-Jihad News– Former U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott says that there are large numbers of known terrorists crossing the southern border into the United States.  Meanwhile, we learned that back in 2014, President Barack Hussein Obama freed the Taliban hoodlums overseeing the takeover of Afghanistan in exchange for disgraced U.S. Army deserter, Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl.  (Should have sent Sgt. Bergdahl to the gallows, Mr. “Forty-Fourth President.”
  91. 2021 Wednesday DD: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former First Lady Rosalyn Carter celebrates her 94th birthday.  Happy birthday, Madam First Lady!
  92. 2021 Wednesday EE: Fake News I– Governor “Killer” Cuomo’s brother Chris “Fraido” Cuomo says he wrote one of his older brother’s statements regarding the initial charges of sexual harassment and assault.  Fire the POS, CNN.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com stooge Mark Zuckerberg says that ‘Facebook removed 18 million COVID-19 misinformation posts.’  (Note- that means that anyone who shared a different view of this Chi-Com, lab-engineered disease, their posts and possibly their accounts got whacked).
  93. 2021 Wednesday FF: Arizona State News– Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, fighting to keep his seat, says he will financially penalize any school district that imposes a mask mandate on students.  
  94. 2021 Wednesday GG: California State News– Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom says the Golden State will ‘gladly welcome all Afghan refugees’ (and hopefully get them registered to vote before the September 14, 2021, recall election).
  95. 2021 Wednesday HH: Florida State News– COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the Sunshine State thanks to the Biden regime’s internecine war to dump massive numbers of illegal aliens there so as to drive UP the numbers of cases.  In Orange County, wastewater treatment plants report an increase of 600-percent of COVID-19 detections in the water.  This is not because of the freedom these people enjoy but because of the dumping of hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants across the state in the dead of night.
  96. 2021 Wednesday II: New York State News– Outgoing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov reportedly is filing for his pension benefits.  Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul is leading in the Democratic Party’s primary race according to new polls.
  97. 2021 Wednesday JJ: Texas State News– The Texas Supreme Court affirmed today that the ‘fugitive Democrats’ can undergo arrest as soon as the idiots return to the Lone Star State.
  98. 2021 Wednesday KK: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3587 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 09, 22, 38, 39, 45, and Mega 02.  Out of 83,101 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had five numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $7,732 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Golden Snack Shop in Carson, CA 90745 (2) Calamart in Sunnyvale, CA 94087 (3) Shell in Los Angeles, CA 90021 and (4) 7-Eleven in Chula Vista, CA 91911.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #863 with a jackpot of $274 million up for grabs: 35, 36, 51, 55, 61, and Power 26.  Out of 92,804 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $52,670.
  99. 2021 Wednesday LL:  The Wrap-Up– You know, mis amigos, I have worked more than my share of places across the country and all I can say is that in my estimation, I think that the Biden ‘whisperer’ in the ear of old Joe- Barack Hussein Obama- has now abandoned his proxy.  It appears that Joe is little more than a senile babe in the woods now, abandoned by all.  We have yet to even see Dr. Jill around anywhere, it is as if he is alone, forlorn, and abandoned and this is concerning, genuinely concerning.  My colleagues here have suggested that the time is NOW for the downfall of the United States, in much the same way as the Soviet Union imploded, so, too, are we, because our enemies have maneuvered us into this position through corrupting our elections and giving us the “Manchurian Candidate.”  The question is, will we allow our government to go after us or will we stand tall and fight back?  I will leave you with this: I know many, many Democrats and the ones who voted FOR Joe Biden now wish they had cast their votes for Trump.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it- there is still hope.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.
  100. 2022 Thursday:  Rep. Liz Cheney- a woman we lovingly have labeled “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney due to her obsessive-compulsive desire to destroy President Donald J. Trump- cannot read the writing on the wall.  The voters of Wyoming said, ‘NO MORE, go the hell away.’  At least that pathetic little piece of crap Adam Kinzinger from Illinois had sense enough NOT even to run for another term.  He knew he was going down months ago so he decided not to run for another term as he would have gone down by 30 points or more as did his associate.  The short Tik-Tok video Kinzinger released saying ‘it was not the end of my career (just not going to win re-election) and that at some point, I will be back.’  Sure.  If it makes you feel better, continue saying it.  As for Lyin’ Liz, at her farewell rally last night in Jackson, Wyoming, about 50 people listened to her compare herself to Abraham Lincoln.  Somehow, she believes she can return even though she was BLOWN OUT.  She believes she can somehow challenge President Trump in 2024 at best and at worst, defeat him by running third party.  Okay, if thinking this wets your panties, good for you.  We suspect, however, that unless she goes on MSNBC or CNN or perhaps even CNBC, she will disappear along with her POS father.  It’s people like her- and her father’s ‘stimulating campaign commercial’ that doomed her to the crapper- that make us wish we could take back the votes we gave him and W. back in 2000 and again in 2004.  Had the Democrats only run better candidates back then- better than Vice President Al Gore in 2000 and something radically different than ‘Lurch’ in 2004, we might not have languished under the military-industrial-political complex, but they did not.  Liz, take a bow and get the f**k out and take that evil f**king father of yours with you.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The biggest online retailer of music- Apple-iTunes- released another archival Beach Boys release- “Live in Sacramento 1964”- on December 02, 2014, so as to prevent the Beach Boys and mostly Brian Wilson (although Mike Love figures in here, too) from losing copyrights on the material due to whack-a-doodle European copyright laws.  Thus we have 37 tunes resulting from two shows and some practice sessions from this legendary show on these two discs.  If you enjoyed the old Beach Boys album, “Beach Boys Concert”- which is a glorious live album for its day, you will most definitely enjoy this one.  We hope you will seek this one out and to make it part of your daily listening rotation- you will be glad you did.

[i] We began promoting the music of the Move- and of Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne- beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

[ii] We are not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of the Bee Gees but one day, we sure as heck will.  They will forever rank as one of the all-time great British bands.

[iii] We definitely look forward to promoting the music of Foreigner one of these days, perhaps in 2020?

[iv] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[v] Many have long contended that President Barack Hussein Obama is an illegitimate president because of him not meeting the birth requirements.  Evidence suggests that he was indeed born in the East African nation of Kenya and that that fact nullified his time in office and his judicial picks- including TWO SCOTUS justices- among other things.  We believe that ‘President Obama’ should always have an asterisk placed next to his name in the history books.  It is interesting to note that his ‘Vice President’ Joseph R. Biden also is an illegitimate president having stolen the 2020 Presidential Election.

[vi] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[vii] The Rolling Stones did not appear at Woodstock for two reasons- Mick Jagger was in Australia filming Ned Kelly and Keith Richard’s girlfriend Anita Pallenberg gave birth to his son, Marlon, on this date.  However, compared to being shot one might think the Stones had been at Woodstock.  Can you imagine their performance?  It would have been amazing.

[viii] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[ix] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now:

[xix] U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xx] While we love OAN, we disagree with their final number.  You see, we said as far back as 2009 when the blog began that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number is closer to 75-100 million.  We must round them up, imprison them in camps in the middle of the Arizona desert or better yet, dump them on Wake Island and let them languish.

[xxi] Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, says that the Biden regime is using the Afghan mess to deflect from the disaster occurring down on the U.S.-Mexico border.

[xxii] Rep. Dan Meuser, R-PA 9th congressional district told Newsmax that the U.S. military left behind 158 Blackhawk helicopters.  Can you imagine?  Of course, the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and the Iranians are scooping them up.

224. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 2022

1943 Thursday: British Prime Minister Winston Churchill arrives in Moscow to meet with Russian leader Josef Stalin. While there, he presents the Soviet dictator with the ‘Sword of Stalingrad,’ thus signaling the victory the Red Army enjoyed over the Nazis earlier in the year. The Russian advisor who accepted the sword then dropped it; no one knows what might have happened to this poor putz.

  68. 2020 Wednesday: Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris make their first appearance as a ticket in Wilmington, Delaware, today.  The former vice president was able to follow the teleprompter most of the way but there were a few times when he began to falter.  Perhaps he requires a shock collar around his neck so every time his eyes begin going fuzzy and his words fall by the wayside, Dr. Jill can give him a quick ZAP to pull him back on course.   Just saying.   Note: the Biden-Harris campaign raised $10.8 million within four hours of announcing that “Groping Joe” Biden had chosen the unpopular California senator to be his vice president.  Hmmm.

[xiv]    Let us look at one other location- North Dakota: $3.131.  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- Senegal: $5.250 per U.S. Gallon. [xv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,633,797,855,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xvi] 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 Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 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.
  78. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,923,443.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,725,319,325.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,507,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,507,919. [xvii]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  Reports also say that during the month of July there were 212,000 border crossings, something unseen in 21 years.
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– On behalf of the people of Cuba, the U.S. Senate passed a bill before fleeing D.C. for the summer that will provide uncensored internet to the freedom-fighting peoples rebelling against the communist government.  (Note- why not provide them guns, senators?).  In other news from across the world, the Taliban has overrun Kandahar and the Pentagon now predicts the fall of Kabul in a month or less.  Can anyone remind us again as to WHY we remained in that spineless crap-hole of a nation and shed the lives and limbs of our troops as well as trillions of dollars?  Let the Chi-Coms have the place.  Worse, the Biden regime is sending 3,000 U.S. troops BACK into Afghanistan to help evacuate our embassy in Kabul.  This is crazy.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Always seeking to set the template for the country, California becomes the first state in the Union to require EVERY teacher and staff member at all schools to undergo vaccination for the Chi-Vi or to face weekly, invasive tests for the wily Chi-Com disease.  The Oxford University vaccinations group say that ‘herd immunity is impossible to achieve with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu variants.’  Sounds like yet another excuse to keep the American people locked down.  Good luck with that.  Next, as government continues trying to force the American people to undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis, we learn today that Pfizer’s vaccine is effective 43-percent while Moderna’s is effective 76-percent against the Delta variant.
  81. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of the vaccines, let us look at the stock prices of the BIG FOUR pharmaceutical companies.  Remember, since the advent of vaccines for the Chi-Vi there are forty new BIG PHARMA billionaires ALL from selling the vaccines to the U.S. government.  First, Pfizer’s stock is low, valued at $47.24 today.  Next, Johnson & Johnson’s stock price is $175.17.  After J & J comes BioNTech at $374.02 and last but not least, the market values Moderna’s stock at $391.42.  We will keep our eyes on BIG PHARMA stocks.  Meanwhile, because of the increase in Chi-Vi cases thanks to the surge of infected illegal aliens along the southern border, Facebook has ordered office workers NOT to return to the office until January 2022.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, DS-PA, launches his order today that stipulates ALL city employees and contractors (and visitors) MUST get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine or wear masks (and suffer treatment like second class citizens).
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s polling ratings continue their ominous, downward slide yet no mainstream media news anchor is discussing his crumbling lack of popularity.  (They want to keep the regime propped up).  Meanwhile, first mentioned yesterday, Joe Biden is begging- begging! – OPEC and Russia to increase production so he can find a way to lower surging gasoline prices in the United States.  All the befuddled old fool must do is to get the hell out of the way and allow American production of fossil fuel energy to soar.
  84. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– The CIA is weighing the establishment of a communist China division in a bid to ‘out-spy’ the Chi-Coms.  We are sorry but this something that the Central Intelligence Agency should have been created back in the 1990s.  We cannot believe this but if true, it shows how pathetic our government is at recognizing true threats around the world.  Like the eye of Sauron, BIG GOVERNMENT is searching for homegrown terrorists.  What a load of festering crap.
  85. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– As Democrats continue waging war on Mike Lindell’s cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota- both cyber and even physical as in the case of Mr. Lindell himself- President Donald J. Trump says that the Democrats ‘MUST NOT be allowed to get away with the murder of Ashli Babbitt.  President Trump also said that the Dems’ $35 trillion budget bill is a ‘communist plot to destroy the United States.’  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Democrats’ spending will erode Americans’ freedoms and drive-up inflation.’  Meanwhile, Twitter suspends Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account for- shock of shocks- another week.  Rep. Greene as you all know represents the 14th congressional district in the Peach State. 
  86. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says- get this- that he has ‘serious concerns’ about his fellow Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  (Note- we predict that he will vote for it anyway).  In other Democrat-related news, following the resignations or retirements of almost one-thousand Chicago police officers as well as the horrible murder of new mom and officer Ella French, Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot is requesting a sizable increase for the Windy City police officers.  Speaking of Democrats, soon-to-be-governor of the Empire State- Kathy Hochul- is doing everything she can to distance herself from outbound Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  Some say she may have had a hand in ALL the nursing home deaths of COVID-19 patients.
  87. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $7 million in the month of July.  Regarding the GOP, they managed to block the “For the People Act” from coming to a vote before everyone in Washington, D.C., flees the capital for August recess.  When they return, the Democrats will force it through to Joe Biden’s desk.  Speaking of the Democrats, House Blue Dogs begged Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, to hold a standalone vote on the ‘infrastructure bill’ but she said, “No dice.”  Meanwhile, a new poll says that a ‘majority of Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism.’  (Note- that is brainwashing for you.  We must reclaim our schools).    
  88. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– President Donald J. Trump endorsed former U.S. Navy Seal Derrick Van Orden to win the seat of retiring Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district.  Van Orden ran for the seat back in 2020 and lost it by 3-points.  We expect he will do much better with President Trump’s endorsement in 2022.  President Trump also says that the American people are turning off Fox News.  In other news, mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, running to replace Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, DS-NYC, said that CNN ‘must fire Governor Cuomo’s brother Chris.’  Amen.
  89. 2021 Thursday Q: Miscellaneous News I– A Georgia mother claims her kids’ elementary school district segregated them.  Thus, she is taking the fight to the Department of Education’s Civil Rights Division for resolution.  It is that flipping Criminal Race, uh, Critical Race Theory BS yet again.  Speaking of the DOE, Secretary Miguel Cardona backs forced vaccinations for ALL public schools’ staff members- NO exceptions.  Elsewhere, it appears that Jaime Spears, the leech-like father sucking daughter Britney dry, has relinquished his role as conservatorship.
  90. 2021 Thursday R: New York State News– New York State Rep. Colin Schmitt, R-NY 99th Assembly District, says that the ‘Cuomo impeachment probe must continue.’  Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, questions WHY Governor Cuomo is stick around for two weeks- is he destroying evidence? 
  91. 2021 Thursday S: Texas State News– The Lone Star State’s election security bill passed in the Texas State Senate.  Meanwhile, as various Democrat-controlled locales in the state attempt to stymie the NO MASK MANDATE order signed by Governor Greg Abbott, via the courts, he is taking the fight to the scoundrel Democrats.  Moreover, he is also telling mentally deficient Joe Biden to ‘let Texas produce our oil.’  Next- and this is a good one- the NAACP is urging the Department of Justice to launch a probe into the arrest warrants for the wayward Democrats still hiding out in Washington, D.C.  “Racist,” don’t you know to expect the elected politicians to do their frigging jobs.
  92. 2021 Thursday T: Weather News I– Democrats across the country are huddling in corners, wetting their undergarments because of sizzling summer weather in North America.  Many cities are declaring heat advisories.  Oh, heaven forbid.
  93. 2022 Friday: Yesterday, we witnessed one of the most nauseating spectacles ever: Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland laying out the groundwork for why he launched the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  What an embarrassment this man is to both the legal profession and the country.  I will say now that he will become the second U.S. AG to go to prison, in the footsteps of John N. Mitchell, the nation’s 67th U.S. attorney general.  I suspect there will be MORE members of the fraudulent Biden regime going to the federal slammer than there were members of the Nixon administration, starting at the very top and going down to various denizens of the Deep State.  I suspect the only one not going to the slammer will be poor Kamala, “California’s shame.”  That girl, my friends, is a blooming moron.   Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.[xviii]

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys next studio album came out on June 05, 2012: “That’s Why God Made the Radio.”  It’s been quite a while since the last studio album which is why the aging Beach Boys spent a lot of time in making this album with a reconfigured lineup: Brian Wilson (vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Bruce Johnston (vocals), Alan Jardine (vocals), and David Marks (guitars and vocals).  To perform the instruments, a humongous number of supporting musicians- including many of the touring band members- participated in the recording of the album.  Most critics enjoyed it, some even comparing it to “Sunflower” while several sourpuss losers panned it.  Say what you will about a band that’s been around for half-a-century, nothing is ever as it was but this is close enough.  Besides, this album hit No. 3 on the U.S. charts which was their highest placement in, uh, 38 years, so what more can be said?  Seek it out now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.
