Question is, does the conflict in Ukraine possess the same spark potential as did the assassination of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife, Sophie? Take out Putin NOW!

  63. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.

  81. 2021 Friday N: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says what everyone else is thinking, that tomorrow’s ‘Justice for J6 Rally’ is going to be a setup.  We believe that tomorrow’s affair is going to be a “Mumbles” Pelosi setup what with loads of FBI informants, Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators, and that anyone who does not want to end up in the D.C. gulag with the other 400-plus poor souls would be wise to avoid the nation’s capital.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts one of the losers who voted to impeach him- retiring Rep. Anthony Gonzalez, RINO-OH 16th congressional district, by saying that the Rep.’s vote to impeach him was ‘very stupid.’  It was.  Look at what is happening to the losers who voted to impeach the 45th president.  One by one, they are losing support, becoming impotent, and will soon all be gone.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is weighing executive privilege in releasing documents related to President Donald J. Trump and the events of January 06, 2021.  Speaking of slobbering Joe, his approval ratings have imploded down to 44-percent- his lowest yet- which means in reality, the loser’s polls are nearer 34-30-percent than they are 44-percent.  Newsmax host Rob Finnerty says, ‘bye-bye Bide, the future we all knew was coming and didn’t want to admit.’ Meanwhile, in another slap to the feeble dictator, two large polluter nations were absent from Joe Biden’s follow-up climate summit.  Finally, Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry says that ‘Joe Biden’s mandate regarding businesses forcing employees to get the Chi-Com vaccinations is divisive and that it undermines doctors.’
  83. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime has interceded in the Purdue Pharma company settlement wanting to go after them some more.  In other Biden regime-related news, the impotent U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken deleted a tweet that said, “The U.S. stands with Hong Kong.”  Chi-Coms didn’t like that, eh?  Next- in something that sounds mighty unconstitutional to most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM, the Biden regime is cutting off the supply of monoclonal antibodies to Red States.
  84. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Nineteen days after blowing up an Afghan ally of the United States and nine members of his family for being the ‘one’ who plotted and carried out the August 27, 2021, suicide bombing that killed 13 American servicemen-and-women, the Pentagon was forced to announce that it had erred taking ‘Taliban intel’ and blowing up this poor man and his family sight unseen.  Oooh, the mighty United States, whacking and stacking God knows who just as it did during the heady days of Obama-Biden.  Still, the Biden regime has better things to do- the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the way it holds ‘tranny prisoners’ in federal prisons.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Served papers yesterday while on a live radio program conducting an interview, famed political strategist Roger Stone said ‘there’s NO evidence supporting the lawsuit against him’ regarding U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the geriatric, nonagenarian leader of the House, and her claims of being behind the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.  We believe you, Roger.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has okayed ‘100 National Guard troops to be on scene for the Saturday rally.’
  86. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– The Republican National Committee has released a new ad showing the countless times that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has lied, flipflopped, or laid bull crap on the American people. Ronna McDaniel- chair of the RNC- says that ‘Joe Biden’s COVID-19 mandates are the results of his far too many failures.’  Next, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, says that ‘Joe Biden has NO business forcing COVID-19 mandates on the American people.’  Amen. 
  87. 2021 Friday T: Political News II– Axios reported today- to the dismay of the Biden regime- that under no circumstances will Senator Joe Manchin, D- W. VA, will vote ‘YES’ on the $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill.  Good.  Elsewhere, Arkansas senatorial candidate and U.S. Army veteran Jake Bequette says that the massive crowds attending college football games shows that the American people are ready to return to their lives.  The government had better pay attention to this. 
  88. 2021 Friday U: Political News III– Thirteen hardcore leftist Dems are pushing for expanded unemployment benefits in the infrastructure and budget reconciliation bills.  Meanwhile, Health and Human Services tells Texas abortion providers, “We got your backs.”  Elsewhere, Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, D-MD 5th congressional district, says that the House will hold a vote so as to avoid imminent government default and subsequent shutdown.  Elsewhere, as mobs of illegal alien invaders swarm under the Del Rio, Texas, bridge, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that the “National Guard should be deployed to maintain order under and along that bridge as a swarm of 10,000 or more Haitian ‘asylum seekers’ mills about there.
  89. 2021 Friday V: U.S. Military News– As outrage continues to grow regarding Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley and his phone calls with the Chi-Coms, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien say the ‘NSA had NO intel suggesting anything that disingenuous fiction author Bob Woodward says in his new book, “Peril,” existed.  Mr. Woodward says that ‘General Milley called the Chi-Coms to warn them that he would warn them should Trump decide to nuke them in his final days.’  Gen. Milley must face courts marshal for being a traitor.
  90. 2021 Friday W: Business News– Ford Motor Company claims the demand for its EV Ford 150 electric trucks is so great that they are going to invest $250 million to increase production and add another 450 jobs in three plants in Michigan to meet this incredible demand.  Wow.  Meanwhile, Tesla is going to work with regulators on data security, something of which, they seem to have problems.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After many years, ‘jinx’ multi-millionaire Robert Durst finally was found guilty of murdering his best friend.  Meanwhile, the judge in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse- accused of murdering two Antifa POS- said that the prosecution cannot bring up ties between Mr. Rittenhouse and the patriotic organization, the Proud Boys.
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Big Tech News– Get this: the arbiter of what’s ‘true’ on the Internet, Google, and Apple, have removed imprisoned critic of Vladimir Putin- Alexei Navalny’s ‘tactical voting app’ designed to mobilize the Russian people to fight back against the new communist dictator, Mr. Putin.  Meanwhile, Chi-Com intelligence gathering app- TikTok- has a new problem, the so-called ‘devious licks challenge’ that encourages American school-aged kids to break the law via vandalism.  Isn’t it about time we began nuking these sons of bitches?
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Sadly, the final Sears (and Roebuck) store- north of Chicago, Illinois- is set to close on November 14, 2021.  What a tragedy of mismanagement, not knowing its customers any longer, and being unable to morph with the times.  Sad, extremely sad, it did not have to happen.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: New York State News– Freshman Governor Kathy Hochul, D-NY, has given the people of her state a big gift: 191 freed inmates.  Meanwhile, three people went off on a New York City eatery host for requesting proof of vaccination before allowing them to enter.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Texas State News– Another Texas death row inmate has had his execution delayed over religious freedom claims.  Meanwhile, Governor Greg Abbott signed a $1.8 billion infrastructure bill to continue erecting the Trump border wall.  The governor said, ‘Joe Biden’s failures to do his job guarding the border has forced Texas to do the federal government’s job at protecting the border and its citizens.’  Meanwhile, state Representative Matt Krause, Republican, is going to primary sitting Attorney General Ken Paxton in 2022.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– Campus Reform students sign a petition to abolish the U.S. Constitution because it’s racist, doesn’t recognize gays, trannys, and people of color.  In other ‘moron news,’ U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-12th congressional district, a person whom capitalism has benefitted immensely, jumped on the socialist train while overseas and says that ‘capitalism has not served the U.S. well.’
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Whacked-Out News of the Day– Today, Los Angeles, California, was announced to be the ‘Bedbug capital of the United States.’  Now that’s a distinction that every town and city in the entire United States covets.  Wow. No wonder we no longer like going to the city of (Fallen) Angels.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1695 what with a $400 million jackpot on the line: 17, 32, 40, 59, 61, and Mega 18.  Out of 130,606 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $17,613 apiece.
  99. 2021 Saturday: Observation of the Day– This past Tuesday, Greta Van Susteren had John “Perpetual War” Bolton on her show on Newsmax and the two discussed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to tactical nukes on the battlefield in Ukraine.   Look, if Adolf Hitler had nukes in 1944 or 1945, he would have used them against Great Britain and Russia for sure and the against U.S. if he could have delivered them.  That little cave-dwelling, slope-headed cretin Vladimir Putin sure as heck does have nukes and if he is facing Armageddon, then so will his enemies.  He already has severed energy supplies to the stupid-assed Europeans who came to depend upon him the same way American leaders delivered our country into the pockets of Xi Jinping.  We could be on the cusp of a global catastrophe much like the world was in early summer 1914 because back then, NO one believed that a far-off conflict in Eastern Europe could envelop almost all of the world in its horrifying embrace.  Yet, by the end of the year, three-quarters of the world was involved in the worst bloodletting the globe had ever seen. Serbia is not that far away from Ukraine so it’s easy to see how just the right spark- like a strike on one of Ukraine’s nuclear power plants- could be the spark of the End Times.  Let us pray that someone dispatches Vladimir Putin and soon so we can avoid just such an outcome.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

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:

Cheap Trick next delivered a four-tune EP on June 02, 1980, the acclaimed “Found All the Parts.”  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  Being an extended play much like a double-sided single with two tunes on either side, the band provides some awesome tunes.  First, we have a cover of the Beatles’ “Day Tripper” followed by “Can’t Hold On” followed by two more tracks, “Such a Good Girl” and “Take Me, I’m Yours.”  You can seek this one out at your favorite site for music or you can purchase the extended version of tomorrow’s offering as it has all four of these tunes added as bonus tracks.  Either way, the decision rests with you and your pocketbook.  Enjoy.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

[ii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

243. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2022

As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November. I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters. When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM! INSURRECTIONISTS! REVOLUTIONARIES! WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”

  65. 2020 Monday:  Failing and flailing Democratic Party presidential nominee, “Pro-China Joe” Biden has finally roused himself from the basement and is now out pounding the pavement.  He blames President Donald J. Trump for the left-wing violence destroying America’s largest Democrat-controlled cities.  What a laugh.  Meanwhile, Steve Bannon, President Donald J. Trump’s former political advisor had his first day in court with three of his fellow sycophants and pled ‘not guilty’ to charges the quartet defrauded donors into providing money to help build the wall along our border with Mexico.  Elsewhere, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the case against former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn cannot be dropped even though the U.S. Justice Department dropped the charges.  This was a nod to the whack-a-doodle judge on the case, Emmet Sullivan.

  69. 2020 Monday D: Today, history occurred as El Al Flight 971 lifted off from Jerusalem and three-and-a-half hours later touched down in the United Arab Emirates, the first flight ever to do so.  The aircraft carried loads of dignitaries and the underside of the jetliner bristled with anti-missile defenses.  This is a momentous day for the entire world although the Palestinians continue running amok in the Gaza Strip, trying to initiate yet another war with the world’s sole Jewish state.  Shame on them.

[xx]    Let us look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.994.  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- Seychelles: $5.950 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,707,520,165,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxii]  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 Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  76. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Following on the heels of the last flight of Americans out of Hamid Karzai International Airport today, the Taliban moved in quickly upon our heels dressed in U.S. camo and using U.S. weapons.  We have left behind perhaps 15,000-20,000 Americans while the bogus regime inhabiting the White House claims the numbers are closer to 100 to 200.  Bulls**t.  Pentagon spokesperson Admiral John Kirby says the U.S. ‘will use leverage to bring trapped Americans home.’  We also left behind all of our military dogs to suffer horrendous fates at the hands of the barbarous Mohammedans who also are going to door to door executing anyone they deem to be enemies or threats to their criminal regime.   What is becoming clearer by the moment is that even though the war is ‘now over,’ Joe Biden’s Afghan crisis is only just beginning.  Take for example, new video showing the Taliban escorting- openly- Osama bin Laden’s former security chief, Dr. Amin al-Haq, an al-Qaida thug.  And the Biden regime says there is NO al-Qaida in the Afghan boonies.  Finally, new reports suggest that during a phone call in June, neither slobbering Joe Biden or Afghan President Ashraf Ghani anticipated the sudden collapse of the country.
  77. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, with the usurper regime in the White House, everything is going to hell.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 160 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle on the southern border and Day No. 67 since her sole visit to th southern border.  What a loser.  Ah, well, the Cost this Day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens is $521,296,416.  Next, the cost of caring for this tsunami of Third World flesh is $265,726,853,120.  As for the numbers of illegal alien vermin who have crossed the southern border this year, here is the appalling figure for the numbers who managed to cross into the United States: 2,723,487.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens sucking away at the American taxpayers’ teat: 36,723,488.  (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- since the inception of this blog back in 2009, we believed the numbers of illegal alien vermin in the U.S. to have been between 35-50 million whereas now- 12 years later- we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport all of them.  NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Ireland announces that it will be dropping almost all COVID-19 restrictions in their country by October all the while Australia continues tightening the screws on its citizens.  The military goes door to door to check on whether its citizens are cowering behind their doors as well as checks on citizens’ individual QR codes to make sure they are following the government’s dictates.  WTF?  In another country seemingly freer than Australia, Vladimir Putin is approving special payments to military and law enforcement personnel ahead of upcoming elections (just like U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is doing for federal employees in America).
  79. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– In other foreign and overseas news, the People’s Republic of China has restricted young people under the age of 18 no more than 3 hours per week playing video games.  Beijing also shut down the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Chengdu, probably because it is pushing the LGBTQIA+ agenda which should get any organization closed down.
  80. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– In an effort to destroy “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, a ‘report’ suggests that death rates in the Sunshine State due to COVID-19 somehow are artificially low.  Elsewhere, another report says that Alaska and Utah have low COVID-19-related deaths.   Meanwhile, an Axios/Ipsos poll says that ‘it appears vaccine hesitancy is waning’ around the nation.  Uh, okay.  NO, no it’s not.
  81. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that he is ‘confident a judge will rule in favor of his ban on the required wearing of masks in Florida’s school systems.  Elsewhere, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, has been accused of violating New Mexico’s mask mandate on a recent visit to the Cactus State.  Liberal hypocrisy?  No, it couldn’t be.  Meanwhile, the Manhattan D.A. charges 15 in a fake COVID-19 vaccine passport scheme.
  82. 2021 Tuesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.07 (2) AstraZeneca $58.28 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.13 (4) BioNTech $329.19 (5) Moderna $376.69.  Follow the money.  Politicians and the Deep State are invested BIG TIME in vaccine manufacturers.
  83. 2021 Tuesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.76 (2) General Dynamics: $200.31 (3) Boeing: $219.50 (4) Lockheed Martin: $359.80 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.70.  Same as above, the Deep State and politicos are invested heavily in the dogs of war.
  84. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden News I– Early this morning, we were promised that faux president Joe Biden would give a statement on the debacle in Afghanistan to the American people.  When he did finally show up, he was agitated and angrier than ever.  The White House must have gotten some of son Hunter’s crack and had old Joe smoke a few bowls before he walked glassy eyed to the microphones and lit into the American people.  (Note- Joe, STFU about your son, Beau Biden, he did NOT die in combat, he was not shot, he was not blown up, and he was not maimed; no, he died from brain cancer from being around too many burn-pits in-country.  You cannot relate with anyone who has lost a loved one in combat.  Enough!).  The old fool also praised the success of the ‘airlift’ and the ‘end of the forever war.’  Speaking of this man’s failure, the Flag Officers 4 America- more than 87-plus former U.S. military officers- sent a letter to “Taliban Joe” Biden demanding the resignations of U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and political hack Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley over failing to advise Joe Biden of the disastrous consequences resulting from his baffling pull-out from Afghanistan.  (Note- Gen. Milley, being the POS that you are and an uneducated one, IF you ever wish someone to explain to you the truth behind the three-fifths clause, we would love to sit down and explain it to your stupid ass.  Also, you must pay heed as to what happens to ‘political generals,’ i.e., General Alfred Jodl and Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel at the end of World War II).  
  85. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News II– The father of a U.S. Marine killed in last Thursday’s terror attack at HKIA- Mark Schmitz- said that when he met Joe Biden at Dover when the bodies of his son and 12 others arrived home on U.S. soil, Mr. Biden ‘bristled’ when told to learn the stories of the dead.  Joe went on about son, Beau, and said little to nothing to comfort the grieving families and instead looked at his watch to see when he could return to the White House basement to watch reruns of “Dragnet” and “Murder She Wrote.”   Joe also claims he is committed to getting ‘the last 100-200 Americans out of Afghanistan.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Fox News had the balls to report today that during a press conference with FEMA regarding Hurricane Ida relief, when he called forward one of his senior advisers, former Rep. Cedric Richmond, the racist faux president referred to him as “BOY.”  Since Mr. Richmond happens to be black, one would think that the besotted old fool who claims to be president would have ignited a firestorm but oh, no, apparently not.  Here is what the senile codger said: “I’m here with my senior adviser and BOY who knows Louisiana very, very well, and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond.” [xxiii]
  87. : Joe Biden Regime News I– Ahead of a White House visit, the U.S. commits to $60 million in foreign aid to the Ukraine.  Next, U.S. State Department staffers are assailing Secretary Anthony Blinken over the need to terminate one of their own- Fritz Berggren who runs a website, bloodandfaith.com- where he blasts Jews, homos and trannys, and other left-wing riffraff.  Hey, staffers: stop sniveling.  You guys get away with all sorts of stuff so shut the hell up.  Elsewhere, Health and Human Services- HHS- says it’s going to open a division committed to combatting ‘climate change.’  Spare us the crap.
  88. 2021 Tuesday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– In other political news, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says- regarding the bogus January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots panel in the U.S. House of Representatives that is demanding BIG TECH to hand over all data related to the GOP and others who were there on that day- that ‘this is America and the people will remember’ if BIG TECH complies with the Democratic-Socialists’ requests. 
  89. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News I– Eric Trump told Newsmax today that the nation ‘demands a refund for the debacle in Afghanistan.’  We left billions of dollars in equipment there as well as billions of dollars more for the criminal regime currently inhabiting the country.   Next, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that Afghanistan is a ‘jaw-dropping, abysmal failure.’  Amen.  Moving on, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th CD, says that ‘Americans are now fending for themselves’ in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd CD, puts most of the blame for the Afghan debacle atop the shoulders of ‘Taliban Joe’ Biden, National Security Adviser Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan, and the increasingly pathetic, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Sell-Out” Blinken.  Finally, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th CD, says that ‘whenever the Biden regime sends Anthony Blinken to the microphone banks, it’s to LIE to the American people.’  Amen, Rep., amen.  Rep. Mast also has said that the ‘White House has doubled down on stupid with the Taliban.’  Finally, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says the “U.S. is going to fund terrorism against itself.”
  90. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News II– Anger continues to grow across the United States at CRT in the schools- what WE call truthfully ‘Criminal Race Theory’ and what the leftist scumbags label ‘Critical Race Theory.’  This crap is as evil as is Marxism and Nazism and must be destroyed.  Anyone promoting this crap must be stripped of their job and sent into the hinterlands to become reeducated.
  91. 2021 Tuesday U: Economic News– Thanks to the COVID-19 crisis, U.S. home prices during the month of June soared to their highest point in years.  (Note- the reason for higher prices is the scarcity thanks to big banks and Chinese companies snapping up homes in mass.  Not good.
  92. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– The murderer of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- received a sentence of life in prison today as well as having to pay restitution for his barbaric crime.  Execute him.  Another condemned murderer set to die on September 8, 2021, via lethal injection in Texas- 37-year-old John Henry Ramirez- is suing to have the right to have his pastor lay hands on him as he undergoes execution.
  93. 2021 Tuesday W: Social Media News– Another mother who lost her son at HKIA last week saw Instagram shutter account over emotional posts she shared following the death of her child.  When blasted for doing it, Instagram said ‘they made a mistake and had NO clue as to how such an outrageous incident occurred.’  Sure, uh-huh.  F— you.
  94. 2021 Tuesday X: Weather News I– Following Hurricane Ida slamming the gulf coast, thousands in Louisiana are facing weeks- if not months- of NO electricity.  We recall that when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, he had everything ready and waiting to rush in and begin the process of restoring power as soon as the storms passed.  What the hell is up with the Biden regime?
  95. 2021 Tuesday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1690 what with a $306 million jackpot on the line: 08, 14, 31, 58, 68, and Mega 15.  Out of 105,850 winning tickets, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,621.
  96. 2022 Wednesday: As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November.  I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters.  When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM!  INSURRECTIONISTS!  REVOLUTIONARIES!  WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”  It will allow the Biden White House to DECLARE MARTIAL LAW, LOCK DOWN THE ELECTION CYCLE, KEEP EVERYONE IN THEIR HOMES, AND FORCE THEM TO USE MAIL-IN BALLOTS which, we the Democratic Party OWN.  If everyone has to vote by mail, we are going to pull our irons out of the fire and save the election cycle.  IF we can’t get Trump voters to run amok, we will send our Antifa and BLM goons out into the streets, give them CSA and Nazi flags and have them run amok.  It’s a cinch. Trump will be indicted but will NEVER go to trial until October 2024 and we will win that election cycle, too.  Man, oh, man, are we smart.  This is the plan, it’s going to work, and Dems are going to WIN and WIN BIG.  Especially when our media spews the myth that the RED WAVE is dying, and the BLUE WAVE is going to crush EVERYONE.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0938 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Rancho Santa Margarita.”  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, giclee, 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:

The next album from the Beach Boys is one to be expected: “The Beach Boys with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra” (June 08, 2018).  There are 17 tunes here featuring Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson along with Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Al Jardine, and David Marks.  Most every band that has survived- or whose record catalog has survived- has had remix albums with orchestras so why would the Beach Boys be any different?  While some criticize the album, others praise it which is what we do being the completists that we are.  Besides- if you’ve purchased everything else, why would you spurn this effort?  It does not cost that much so pick it up much like you would (or did) “Metamorphosis” or “Jamming with Edward” by the Rolling Stones.  We think you will enjoy but if not, perhaps your aging mother or father will.  After all, they are most likely Beach Boys fans.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[ii] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[iii] Shavers won the vacant Nevada state heavyweight title on September 28, 1971.  However, Earnie lost his two big-time title fights, the first to Muhammad Ali on September 29, 1977, via a 15-round unanimous decision.  He fought to win the WBA, WBC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight titles.  The second shot was against Larry Holmes, aka the Easton Assassin, on September 28, 1979.  Holmes held the WBC heavyweight title of the world.  Holmes beat Shavers via a TKO at the 2:00 minute mark of Round 11 in a scheduled 15-round heavyweight bout.  There would be no future shots at any of the belts.

[iv] We hope to begin promoting the music of Them and of Van Morrison at some point in the near future.  Please remain alert for the day when we do.

[v] We shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies beginning on Thursday, 25-November-2010 through Sunday, 02-January-2011.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy.

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

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Firefall sometime in 2026.  Please stay tuned.

[viii] We most definitely should have done Whitesnake back during the time we did the music of Deep Purple, Elf, Rainbow, Ian Gillan, Ian Gillan Band, Richie Blackmore, and the rest of that offering but we failed to do so.  However, when we get around to doing Poison, Mȍtley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and other of the HAIR bands sometime within the next 10 years.  As for the first grouping of bands, we shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.  The only problem, we did the lineup at the Google Blogger blog we had for 11 years and that cocksucker Sundar Pichai, a POS Pakistani jihadist shut us down.  He will get his when conservatism reclaims the nation in the greatest revival since the post-Civil War era.

[ix] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments. 

[x] 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.

[xi] More and more Americans now believe that President Barack Hussein Obama was the first phony president as it has become clearer that he was NOT born in the United States but in Kenya.  This would explain the actions of the Democrats back in 2009 when they began to go down the totalitarian roadway.  Look at them now.

Trump for comments he made about the crappy job the city’s highest civil servant for being such a worthless putz.   He claims the president has created ‘hate and division.’  Meanwhile, Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf says ‘all options’ are on the table for ending the violence afflicting major and mid-sized American cities facing increased violence on their streets, violence we allege the Chi-Coms are financing through their lackeys in the Democratic Party, what we now call the Democratic-Socialist Party of America, the DSPA.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden pops out of his hidey hole and denounces the violence afflicting the United States.  Uh, okay Joe, okay.  Finally, a shooting outside a pancake house in Chicago today claims one life and wounds several others.  It was a drive-by shooting in which an SUV pulled by the foodservice establishment and opened fire.  Democratic Catchphrase of the Day: “Trump is dividing the nation!”  Reprobate Rep. Adam Schiff, D-CA, tells Dana Bash, aka Old Horse Face, that “Donald Trump is fanning the flames of violence.”  Hmmm…
  59. 2020 Sunday A: Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe informs Maria Bartiromo on the Fox News Channel that although ‘Russia remains a problem, the real threat emanates from communist China,’ land of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The fact that the Democrats continue dismissing the threat of communist China while constantly braying about ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ as the imminent threat tells observant readers and contributors that what the Democrats claim others are doing is what they, themselves, are guilty of doing which means the Dems are colluding with the Chi-Coms to defeat Donald Trump and to deliver the United States into the hands of Chairman Xi.  Next, in the United States, we have arrived at a startling statistic: so far this year, 37 police officers have been killed in the line of duty and another 700 injured. 
  60. 2020 Sunday B: Sadly today, we do not have the stock market or the current COVID-19 statistics due to an attempted Chi-Com attack into our systems that shut us down for nearly three days.  Sorry.

[viii]   
  62. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 337,689 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 66,419 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  63. 2021 Monday 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: 4,346,741 confirmed cases, 65,814 confirmed deaths, and 2,273,567 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,277,385 confirmed cases, 44,553 confirmed deaths, and 2,339,765 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 62,949 confirmed cases, 589 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 561,568 confirmed cases, 6,594 confirmed deaths, and 245,910 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Wyoming: they have 74,756 confirmed cases, 835 confirmed deaths, and 69,198 confirmed recoveries.

[x]

[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,481.98 per troy oz, -11.59 (-0.46%). [xii] The price of RHODIUM is $17,600.00 per troy oz., +200.00 (+1.15%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $770,000.00 per troy oz., -5,000.00 (-0.65%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,653.00 per USD/T, +32.25 (+1.23%).  [xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.11.     In Zambian Kwacha, one greenback equals 15.86 and in Zimbabwean Dollar, a buck equal 361.90 and in Afghan Afghani, one dollar equals 87.84 of theirs. [xiv]        
  66. 2021 Monday 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 $4.398 per gallon, $2.943 in Florida, $4.070 in Hawaii, and $3.902 in Washington state. [xv] Let us look at one other location- Vermont: $3.086.  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- Latvia: $5.918 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,703,407,487,861 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Bermuda, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Netherlands with $70 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 Monday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The White House reports that within the past 24 hours, the U.S. military has been able to evacuate 1.2 thousand people.  Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st CD told Newsmax that ‘it’s likely the Pentagon had more than a head’s up on last Thursday’s ISIS-K suicide bombing at the Kabul airport.’  Speaking of this disaster, increasing numbers of Democrats are beginning to turn their backs on the usurper in the White House over his sheer stupidity in dealing with Afghanistan.  Rasmussen reports that 52-percent of the American people rate Joe Biden’s Afghan performance as POOR.   Rep. Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th CD, says the ‘evacuation mission must be extended.’  Rep. Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd CD, told Newsmax today that the ’U.S. is cowering to the Taliban following the terror group’s demands that the United States adheres to its deadline for their withdrawal.’  Prior to the commander in charge- General Austin S. Miller- proclaiming the ‘war is over’ in Afghanistan, Senator Joni Ernst, R-IA, said, ‘it’s unclear if we will get all Americans out of the POS country.’  According to the general, we won’t.  The Pentagon says that the last U.S. military aircraft have left Afghanistan and that the war is now ‘over.’
  68. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, folks.  As much as it upsets our stomach to continually point out the deficiencies of the loser some claim is the ‘vice president,’ we are compelled to do it anyway.  Today is Day No. 159 since Joe Biden made “Kooky Kamala” Harris the so-called ‘border czar’ and Day No. 66 since her sole visit to the U.S.-Mexico border.  What can we say other than the fact that this woman is a complete loser?  It is what it is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion along the southern border and across the United States as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost of caring for these frigging illegal alien losers for just this day: $519,850,464.  Second, here is the cost of caring for these maggots for this year: $264,629,485,568.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have swarmed into our country just this frigging year: 2,712,240.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, we assure you, of the number of illegals roaming across the United States as we speak: 36,712,240.  (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).
  69. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Iran and Syria are proposing a mutually beneficial economic plan for the betterment of both nations seeing as the U.S. has imposed harsh sanctions on not only national leaders but the countries.   Eventually, we believe that Iran will spread across Iraq and into Syria to the Mediterranean where they most likely will establish a naval base.  Meanwhile, another member of the Axis of Evil- North Korea- is set to begin enriching plutonium yet again, giving the big, gnarly middle finger to the Biden regime.  Elsewhere, the World Health Organization has opened an air bridge into Kabul, Afghanistan, to get medical supplies into the hellhole nation.  Finally, “Kooky Kamala” Harris visiting Vietnam laid flowers at the monument commemorating the shootdown of then-U.S. Navy flier, John McCain.  WTF is wrong with this stupid woman?
  70. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As COVID-19 cases continue to surge thanks to the importation of millions of UNSCREENED illegal aliens and refugees, McDonalds’ restaurants and other similar fast-food outlets are closing down indoor dining.  Meanwhile, Texas and Florida are stressing antibody treatments over forcing everyone to get the increasingly ineffective vaccines.
  71. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee, Democrat, is so upset with the harsh lockdowns destroying economic activity across the Silver State that he is switching to becoming a Republican.  That is correct, Mayor Lee blasted Governor Steve Sisolak, DS, and is now a member of the GOP.   In other harsh COVID-19 lockdown and restriction news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that ‘Trump hatred’ is preventing potential COVID-19 drug research and development.’  Amen, Senator, amen.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Education is pursuing five states that have mask bans in place in their schools.
  72. 2021 Monday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.76 (2) AstraZeneca $58.61 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.66 (4) BioNTech $345.00 (5) Moderna $370.69.  The reason we share these figures is so that the public understands the reason for the push behind the vaccine craze.  Everyone in government is feeding from the hog trough, getting big, fat, rich, and horribly wealthy while everyone else starves in the street.  NOT flipping good for the American people.
  73. 2021 Monday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.80 (2) General Dynamics: $199.19 (3) Boeing: $217.63 (4) Lockheed Martin: $362.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.62.  Folks, do you believe that the U.S. military is upset over leaving $85 billion of military equipment in Afghanistan?  Well, they most assuredly are NOT.  The reason for this is because the military industries will have to make more weapons of war for the military which means profits for these companies will continue to increase which means everyone in the Deep State and elected to government will be profiting from their stock dividends.  The classic money-go-round and the reason WHY the left hates President Donald J. Trump- he got in the way of their money.  God bless him.
  74. 2021 Monday M: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says that the U.S. ‘must either evacuated U.S. military abandoned in Afghanistan or bomb it.’ 
  75. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s approval ratings have dropped to 48-percent (which in the era of FAKE NEWS means they most likely are down around 29-percent.  Serves the usurper right).  Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling Joe Biden continues taking heat after the regime claimed it was taking intel from the Taliban to go after the plotters of last Thursday’s attack at HKIA in Kabul.  The world learned that the intel provided by the Taliban to the Bidenistas killed an Afghan interpreter and nine members of his family, including seven children.  Good Lord, Joe, you are a pathetic loser. 
  76. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– After Joe Biden and wife Jill met the returning slain U.S. military heroes from last Thursday’s terrorist attack at HKIA, Joe is taking incoming flak over him pushing up his cuff to look at his watch as the bodies were being brought in.  WTF is wrong with you, Joe, you can watch reruns of “Matlock” and “Colombo” anytime on TV.  Honor America’s slain military men and women you corrupt POS.  Newsmax reports that the dimwitted Joe Biden’s mindless comments are endangering Americans such as his recent bull crap, “What interest do we have in Afghanistan at this point with al-Qaida gone?  We went to Afghanistan with the express purpose of getting rid of al-Qaida in Afghanistan as well as Osama bin Laden.”  Joe, you are a moron, zip your lips.
  77. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– FEMA Director Deanne Criswell says that ‘after Hurricane Ida, the biggest concern for the federal government is COVID-19-slammed hospitals.’  (Note- the other day when Joe Biden was at a press conference with Director Criswell, the old fool couldn’t even say her name properly.  This man is an embarrassment for the country as his Number Two, “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  (Note- we would be better off with Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke in the U.S. Naval Observatory, and that guy is a drooling moron).
  78. 2021 Monday Q: Political News I– Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell blasted Joe Biden’s hurried exit from Kabul by saying, ‘it’s worse than Saigon’ back in 1975.   Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that ‘words cannot describe the Afghan travesty.’   Worse, we learn today that U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken was vacationing in the Hamptons when the debacle in Afghanistan began.  What a loser.  We learned today that various U.S. businesses around the nation are lobbying to bring about the implosion of the Biden regime’s ‘infrastructure bill.’  Good.  The bill needs to go into the circular filing cabinet.
  79. 2021 Monday R: U.S. House of Representatives News I– One-hundred-and-three House Republicans are going to oppose any attempt by the Democrats to raise the debt ceiling yet again so the Dems can borrow billions and billions from communist China and other nations so they can fund ‘Joe Biden’s’ economic ‘plans.’  We wish you luck.
  80. 2021 Monday S: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Abortion providers are down on their knees sniveling to the United States Supreme Court to STOP the new Texas fetal heartbeat law.
  81. 2021 Monday T: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Democrats are celebrating as word came of conservative radio talk show host Marc Bernier who has a radio program in Daytona Beach, Florida.  Mr. Bernier was opposed to forced vaccinations so the tragic fact that COVID-19 took him out has caused legions of left-wing losers to dance around the maypole in celebration.  F**k them.  (Note- whatever happened to ‘my body, my choice’?)  Meanwhile, Joseph P. Kennedy II- oldest son of slain Senator Robert F. Kennedy- is opposed to the release of his convicted assassin, Sirhan B. Sirhan, age 77.
  82. 2021 Monday: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Colonial Williamsburg to highlight gay and tranny reenactments.  Elsewhere, the former 20-year-old mistress of then-President John F. Kennedy, Democrat, is going to share her story with the press.  In other WOKE news, a new video came to light in which a skanky-looking California teacher was bragging how without an American flag in her classroom, she cajoled a student into pledging allegiance to the LGBTQIA+ Homo flag.  That teacher needs to be shot.  We must stop this WOKE devastation of the country.  If or when the Chi-Coms take the country over, all this WOKE crap will go out the window and these WOKIES will either get with the program or will join us in the labor/reeducation camps.
  83. 2021 Monday V: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #878 with a jackpot of $332 million up for grabs: 03, 15, 45, 51, 61, and Power 08.  Out of 58,654 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of 15,080 apiece.
  84. 2022 Tuesday: Unlike my colleagues, I do my best to avoid crossing the line into spitefulness because calling others foul names accomplishes nothing.  Still, there are things I find problematic with my party such as the Mar-a-Lago raid.  That is causing more people to cross over to the GOP which is going to have disastrous consequences for Dems come November.  We shall monitor the situation.  Chef Itzi Nakamura.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0937 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Cove at Sundown.”  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:

The next release by the Beach Boys featured another archival release, a LIVE one from several top-quality shows from 1967: “Live Sunshine 1967” (12-08-2017).  For decades, if we wanted live Beach Boys shows from the group’s heyday- 1966 through 1979- we had to find vendors of bootlegs which was easy during the days of colored vinyl.  However, as time progressed, it became more difficult which is why we are so glad we are still alive half-a-century later.  We have two shows from Hawaii plus rehearsals, another from Washington, D.C., Pittsburgh, White Plains, N.Y., and from other locales, all of which are a joy to behold.  We hope you find the necessary Joe Biden worthless greenbacks to pick up this amazing collection of concerts.  You will be extremely glad you did, that, we guarantee.

[i] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[ii] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[iii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig, Mick Abrahams, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Wild Turkey, and Paris on Monday, May 24, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  We are still in the process of presenting the music so please, join us at WordPress.  We hope you will.

[iv]We most definitely should have done Whitesnake back during the time we did the music of Deep Purple, Elf, Rainbow, Ian Gillan, Ian Gillan Band, Richie Blackmore, and the rest of that offering but we failed to do so.  However, when we get around to doing Poison, Mȍtley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and other of the HAIR bands sometime within the next 10 years.  As for the first grouping of bands, we shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.  The only problem, we did the lineup at the Google Blogger blog we had for 11 years and that cocksucker Sundar Pichai, a POS Pakistani jihadist shut us down.  He will get his when conservatism reclaims the nation in the greatest revival since the post-Civil War era.

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

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

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.

[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.

  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.

Trump will be holding a massive America First rally.  Tens of thousands expected to attend.  Speaking of the commander-in-chief, President Trump accuses regime leader Joe Biden of ‘unforgivable dereliction of duty.’
  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.
  88. 2021 Friday V: Miscellaneous News I– Yesterday, a refugee boat off the Canary Islands capsized with 37 refugees missing in the roiling waters. 
  89. 2021 Friday W: Business News– General Motors is recalling 73,000 Bolt EVs for problems at a cost of $1 billion.
  90. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Yesterday, a NYPD officer leapt onto the subway tracks to rescue a man who had fallen atop them.  Elsewhere, police in Miami-Dade County in Florida close a cold case going back quite a few years.  Police arrested the murderer of University of Miami football star Bryan Pata, Rashaun Jones.  Jones shot Pata to death in the parking lot of his apartment building and from there, the case went cold.   Next, four police officers suffered injuries in a shooting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, apprehending a mope.  Meanwhile, much to the shock of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the FBI says there is ‘scant evidence of coordination in the FALSE FLAG operation that occurred on Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021.’  Oi vie, poor Madam Mumbles!  In other news, as violent crime continues to skyrocket in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Mayor Jim Kenney rejected ALL calls to call in the National Guard to combat the violent hoodlums running amok in the streets.
  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.
  93. 2021 Friday AA: Natural Disasters News– As fires continue raging across northern California, 35,000 people have received evacuation orders to flee from the horrendous Dixie Fire.
  94. 2021 Friday BB: New York State News– A frigging musical based on the life and times of short-time Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, is slated for Off-Broadway production.  Speaking of “Killer” Cuomo, moving vans have been seen at the governor’s mansion packing up the soon-to-be-ex-governor’s possessions.
  95. 2021 Friday CC: Moron News I– After the big lug Arnold Schwarzenegger insulted millions of Americans by saying “Screw your freedoms” when it comes to the debate on mask-waring, Australian actor Calum Von Moger who portrayed Arnold in a film about the guy has severed all ties with the former failed California governor over his casual dismissal of concerned Americans.  Good for you.
  96. 2021 Friday DD: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The new host of the game show, “Jeopardy!” Mike Richards is stepping down saying he does not want ‘past sexist tweets’ to create problems for the popular show.
  97. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1687 what with a $256 million jackpot on the line: 41, 43, 51, 57, 70, and Mega 01.  Out of 88,189 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $24,149 apiece.
  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. 

227. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 15, 2022

2020 Saturday C: After the NYPD union endorses President Donald J. Trump, New York Democrats go berserk, particularly the little communist skank, your friend and ours, the Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, former barmaid in the Big Apple, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, now known as AOC.

Trump finally does something many people have long-wished him to do and that was to suspend the security clearance of ‘former communist’ and former CIA director under Barack Hussein Obama- John Brennan.  This SOB should have had his security clearance suspended on Day No. 1.  
  54. 2020 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that will not stop giving, statistics for today: 21,280,608 confirmed cases, UP 243,665, 767,422 confirmed deaths, UP 5,496, and 13,290,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 241,905.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 5,403,756 confirmed cases, UP 50,148 new cases, 170,632 confirmed deaths, UP 998, and 2,733,055 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,926. 
  55. 2020 Saturday A: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 613,689 confirmed cases, 11,147 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a mildewed POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 4,543 confirmed cases, forty confirmed deaths, and 1,756 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 66,139 confirmed cases, 1,755 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee will not list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at the numbers of another state we have not looked at lately, Arkansas, the “Natural State.”  The number of cases in the state is 52,392 while the number of deaths is six hundred.  The number of confirmed recoveries is 44,905.  Thank you, Governor Asa Hutchinson for your honesty and integrity.
  56. 2020 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics for Several Hand-selected Nations- Let us look at the second-highest nation infected with the Wuhan Virus, Brazil:  The South American nation has 3,317,0996 cases of Xi Jinping’s gift to the world what with 107,232 deaths, and 2,384,302 recoveries.   India is the third highest nation infected with this dastardly, lab-engineered virus what with 2,589,208 confirmed cases, 50,084 confirmed deaths, and 1,860,672 confirmed recoveries.  Russia comes in fourth what with 917,884 confirmed cases, 15,617 confirmed deaths, and 729,411 confirmed recoveries.  Now, let’s look at the Chi-Coms, the place where this needless disaster began: last week, they come in 30th among nations but this week have dropped to 32nd place (yeah, right) with 84,808 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths (same as last week), and 79,519 confirmed recoveries (although our sources in Hong Kong and Macau tell us they are 10-12-times higher than reported which sounds about right for the main communist hellhole on the planet.  Shame on them and damn them for the crime they have committed on the world).
  57. 2020 Saturday C: After the NYPD union endorses President Donald J. Trump, New York Democrats go berserk, particularly the little communist skank, your friend and ours, the Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, former barmaid in the Big Apple, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, now known as AOC.  Not sure what these frigging Democrats expected but we predict that all across the United States, one law enforcement union after another is going to endorse President Donald J. Trump.  To tell you the truth, we expect Richard Trumka and the AFL-CIO to fall in line behind President Trump because in SOCIALIST-COMMUNIST countries, labor unions are for show while in FREE nations such as the United States, Labor serves a purpose and unions represent the workers.  As long as they do not try to devour businesses but work with them, amazing things can occur.  Trumka- get with it: NOW.
  58. 2020 Saturday D: Robert Trump, President Trump’s younger brother, died of an unknown illness at age 72.  He was a Trump Org. executive and a much more private member of the family although he supported his brother’s presidency. 
  59. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 207,984,087 confirmed cases, +460,845, 4,374,467 confirmed deaths, +7,695 and 186,447,031 confirmed recoveries, +431,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 37,466,718 confirmed cases, UP 30,883 from yesterday’s reporting, 637,561 confirmed deaths, UP 122, [vi] and 30,153,576 confirmed recoveries, UP 8,967.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]  
  60. 2021 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 318,804 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 85,274 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  61. 2021 Sunday 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: 4,131,332 confirmed cases, 64,670 confirmed deaths, and 2,189,158 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,925,074 confirmed cases, 40,584 confirmed deaths, and 2,312,488 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 51,200 confirmed cases, 552 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 508,842 confirmed cases, 6,289 confirmed deaths, and 238,596 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Connecticut: they have 361,836 confirmed cases, 8,307 confirmed deaths, and 341,673 confirmed recoveries. [viii]   
  62. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 939,360 confirmed cases, 6,668 confirmed deaths, and 884,799 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Guinea-Bissau, 180th country on the list: 5,123 cases of the virus, 90 confirmed deaths and 4,399 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  63. 2021 Sunday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,515.38, UP 15.58 points (+0.044%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,822.90, UP 6.64 points (+0.045%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,468.00, UP 7.17 points (+0.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.03 per barrel, -0.41 (-0.60%).  The price of GOLD is $1,781.50 per troy oz., +3.30 (+0.19%) while the price of SILVER is $23.74 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.16%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,025.90 per troy oz, -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of COPPER is $4.36 per pound, -0.03 (-0.72%).

[xiii]        
  64. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.404 per gallon, $3.013 in Florida, $4.087 in Hawaii, and $3.897 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other location- New Jersey: $3.202.  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- Japan: $5.318 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,645,810,068,827 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 Belgium, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Grand Cayman Island with $225 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.
  65. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Celestial strings please- today is Day No. 145 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 51 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Here are the numbers for illegal aliens and the cost of caring for them as provided by OAN.  First, the cost this day alone is: $632,597,824.  Next, here is the appalling cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country for just this year: $248,303,894,528.  Imagine the good that money could do for the American people and not the flotsam and jetsam of the Third World?  Next, here are the numbers of illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,544,916.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers for all time: 36,544,916.  Horrifying, simply horrifying.  (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).  In other border news, Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook published a study in which seven million illegal aliens would receive amnesty immediately.  WHO gives a f**k what Zuckerberg and Facebook say?  Break them up like the federal government did Ma Bell decades back.
  66. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– In the wee hours of the morning, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled to neighboring Tajikistan where the government granted him asylum.  Later in the day, the Taliban rumbled into Kabul, took control of Bagram Air Base, released prisoners, and ended up in the presidential palace.  The Chi-Coms, the Russians, and the Iranians recognized the new Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.  Twenty years after the U.S. and her NATO allies drove the scum out of the country, they are back and more Islamist than ever.  Helicopters are shuttling people from the American embassy to the airport where they are leaving the country as fast as they can.   The Taliban claims they want a ‘peaceful transfer of power.’  U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says that IF the United States did not abandon Afghanistan to her fate, we would be back at war with the Taliban.   Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says the debacle in Afghanistan caused by no one else but slobbering Joe Biden has humiliated the United States on the world stage.
  67. 2021 Sunday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– Speaking of Afghanistan, President Donald J. Trump says that the Biden regime did not follow the withdrawal plan that had the Taliban did what they are now doing would have blasted them with drone strikes and air power.  President Trump says the Biden regime handed Afghanistan over to the Taliban so whatever happens to the people there- but especially the women and girls- will be atop the heads of the regime.  Elsewhere, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada bravely calls for snap elections in a few months.  The effeminate PM whose father was one of the Rolling Stones is confident that his party can win back the majority which will mean he will not have to depend on a coalition of left-wing parties.  Careful what you wish for, Mr. PM.  In other foreign and overseas news, black marketeers selling gasoline out of a tank in northern Lebanon blew themselves up.  At least twenty-eight poor souls lost their lives and another seventy-nine suffered a wide variety of horrible injuries. 
  68. 2021 Sunday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A Freedom March in Los Angeles, California, peacefully protesting the harsh lockdown mandates and restrictions across the city drew left-wing thugs from Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  One of the thugs brazenly stabbed one of the anti-lockdown marchers.  Not sure as to what his condition is.  Next, the Biden regime continues waging war on the state of Florida.  According to some mope in the regime, the federal government will provide financial assistance to Sunshine State lawmakers fighting against Tallahassee’s ban on kids wearing masks in schools.  We are on the cusp of a second civil war thanks to the Chi-Coms interfering in our affairs.  Next, here are the stock prices for BIG PHARMA: (1) Pfizer $48.48 (2) AstraZeneca PLC $58.48.  (3) Johnson & Johnson $176.25 (4) BioNTech $377.32 (5) Moderna $389.78.
  69. 2021 Sunday K: Political News I– Following Senator Lindsey Graham’s ‘YES’ vote on the Biden regime’s ‘infrastructure bill,’ several counties in South Carolina censured the RINO Republican.  In other news, sniveling anti-Trumper Republicans are lying to the Fake News by saying that Trump supporters are calling for violence against the American people.  STFU.
  70. 2021 Sunday L: Political News II– In other political news, a judge put the kibosh on Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott’s executive orders authorizing Lone Star State law enforcement to pull over cars, buses, and trucks suspected of carrying illegal aliens throughout the state.  Since most of the illegals swamping the country at present are carrying the Chi-Vi and other dire diseases into the country, one would think it would be a matter of protecting the public health but oh, no, the liberals despise it when anyone pursues the new class of Democratic low-wage slaves: illegal aliens.
  71. 2022 Monday: Everyone is appalled by what the Biden regime did one week ago today- raiding President Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate- and we will continue being appalled.  There must be heads on the chopping block over this egregious, unpatriotic and highly un-American travesty of justice and I, your host, believe even more people are going to continue voting GOP in ever-growing numbers.  I suspect that tomorrow, Liz Cheney will be out on her ass just as will be the old fossil, Lisa Murkowski.  I suspect that each primary race left on the calendar is going to witness RINOs going down in smoldering defeat.  How the hell Dan Newhouse escaped retribution is beyond us but I am sure Chef Vlad will have something to say about that.  From this point forward, the FBI- aka the Joestapo- will be viewed as no better than the Mexican Federales.  You had better bet payback is coming at the election booth for all of these leftwing-liberal losers and pieces of festering shit.  We cannot wait.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0923 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Mustang Run.”  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.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Just when one suspects that the vaults might be dry, bone dry, well, think again.  Capitol Records went into the archives and produced yet another massive box set: “Made in California,” released on August 27, 2013.  A massive, 6-CD set broken down by years and then by decades, there is so much material here which spans the years from 1961 through 2012.  There are 174 tunes here, 60 of which have either NEVER been heard or were on bootleg albums fans sought out on the black market.  There are well-known cuts, live cuts, B-sides, alternate versions, and everything between here, there, and everywhere.  IF you can afford the dough, we hope you will seek this amazing box set out wherever it is you shop for the best in music.  Hell, you might even be able to find it at your local library depending upon the size of the city in which you live.  We think you will love it as much as do we so what the heck are you awaiting?  A personal invitation?  Seek it out now and enjoy.

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

[ii] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[iii] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

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

[v] We look forward to sharing ALL of the Woodstock 1969 albums one day.  On opening day, the first act of the day was Richie Havens followed by an Indian swami who gave the incantation.  Following him, Sweetwater took the stage followed by Bert Sommer, then Tim Hardin, then Ravi Shankar, Melanie, Arlo Guthrie, and Joan Baez.  The performances began 05:07 P.M. and ended 2:00 A.M. the following morning. This was the first day.

[xvii] These leftwing sons of bitches somehow believe signs of American patriotism as well as other signs such as the wholly American “OKAY sign” are emblematic of WHITE SUPREMACISM which is the stupidest thing any of us have ever heard.  It’s time to clean the leftists out of government.  We would love to see Bernie Kerik become head of the FBI and former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke become head of the ATF in the second Trump administration.  Would that not be something?  It would be good to see Rudy Giuliani become the next U.S. Attorney General.  Can you dig it?  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

219. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 07, 2022

IF you want to end monkeypox in the United States, close the bathhouses, the gay bars, park restrooms, and encourage the homo men to return to practicing safe sex, if not chastity. Without the so-called ‘gay gene’ being discovered- and believe you me, they are searching high and low for it- homosexuality is 99.99999-percent choice, not a matter of birth. Will people be mad at us? Sure, but we don’t give a flying hoot because it is important to always speak the truth.

They would rather kiss the rear-ends of environmentalist groups than to do what is right by the people of the state- the U.S. citizens, which is. Meanwhile, the ‘democratic’ People’s Republic of China bans the Disney movie, “Christopher Robin” (from Winnie the Pooh fame) because the character had the audacity to mock the communist thug running the country, Xi Jinping.

  57. 2020 Friday: Prior to President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Ohio the previous day, Republican Governor Mike DeWine claimed to have had a positive test for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. Today, his office declared it to be a false alert, that he did NOT have the Wuhan Virus. Well, we know that Governor DeWine is a RINO and that he does not want to appear with President Trump so there you go. What a shame. Meanwhile, employment statistics for the month of July show a net gain of 1.763 million new jobs filled, that unemployment in the country had dropped to 10.2 percent and that of all the jobs gained, one-third of them were in the leisure and hospitality industry. Unemployment for all categories is down but especially for black and Hispanic Americans. No matter what the Democrats do, they cannot cripple the economy. Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo says that schools in the Empire State will reopen in the fall for all students. Finally, “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues trying to clarify his statements from earlier in the week that he is ‘not a racist’ and that he ‘loves black folks.’  Uh, okay, Joe, okay. We KNOW you are a racist and that since your earliest days in the U.S. Senate, you have backed every segregationist move that came your way. Enough is enough, already!
  58. 2020 Friday A: Various teachers’ unions around the country continue sniveling and whining about ‘how dangerous it is for them to return to the classrooms in the fall due to Wuhan Virus Crisis concerns,’ to which, we say, “IF you can’t do it, then step the hell aside and allow others to do the job” as well as urge President Trump to find ways by which to terminate all teachers who will not return to the classrooms.  We must find ways by which, we can crush public sector employees’ unions because this is bulls**t. Besides, teachers’ unions want to defund cops, make the Green New Deal real, and all manner of left-wing socialist crap. However, one way by which, we can make sure the kids and teachers can socially distant is to DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR KIDS and you will find classrooms 50-percent vacant. DO THIS NOW! Never let a good crisis like the Chinese Virus go to waste, DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS BUT ESPECIALLY THEIR KIDS! Once done, the test scores of American children will skyrocket as they will not have to restrict their pace to that of the ignorant illegals.  Meanwhile, news hits that the Democratic Party does NOT want the “Baby Evita,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka AOC, to speak at their upcoming convention. Who can blame them? The girl is bat crap stupid! Elsewhere, the Democrats in Congress continue demanding a $3 trillion COVID-19 relief bill atop the previous trillion dollars spent on this Chi-Com lab-engineered pandemic. If anyone should be $3 trillion, it should be the Democratic Party’s masters in Beijing!
  59. 2020 Friday B: The president of Lebanon- Michel Aoun- announces that one of two things sparked the ginormous explosion that toppled much of the port section of Beirut on Tuesday: human error or human intent. He asked the president of France for help in determining if a missile or an aircraft in the vicinity might somehow have caused the godawful explosion that has killed close to two hundred people, injured 4,000 or more, as well as caused the disappearances of numerous others. The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes it was an Iranian weapons cache that a moron dropped a cigarette butt into, or the Israeli Mossad took action to stop a Hezbollah (we put nothing past POS murderer Hassan Nasrallah) or Hamas’s plot against them.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump announces he will extend unemployment benefits to the end of the year. He says he will forgo school loan repayments for the time being and that evictions will be put on hold until sometime in the fall. He also announces aid for Lebanon in the aftermath of what appears more likely to have been a terrorist attack in that beautiful nation. President Trump also says- yet again- that the Dept. of Homeland Security is ready, willing, and able to go into Portland, Oregon, and end the seventy-six straight days of rioting that has been trashing that once beautiful city. It is clear that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is in league with the Marxist scum. We say, “Send in former Blackwater Special Ops and WHACK ‘em!”

  70. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 137 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to oversee the fiasco along the southern border with Mexico and Day No. 43 since her one and only visit to the catastrophe going on down there.  As the border continues imploding, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says the White House’s border policies only lead to increased violence and an avalanche of drugs from communist China (which in our view is an act of war against the American people).  Moving on, here are the figures for the illegal alien invasion as compiled by One America News.  Ready?  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens: $554,515,584.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $ 239,458,680,832.  Next, (3) here is the number of illegal aliens who have swarmed across the border this year: 2,454,259.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens living within the United States: 36,454,260.  (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- since the inception of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day back in July 2009, we predicted then that the numbers were approximately 35-50 million whereas now, we contend they are closer to 75-100 million which is not good.  The seeds of our own destruction already exist among us.
  71. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As Joe Biden continues stumbling around like a deranged lunatic suffering from the DTs, Texas Judge Richard Cortez is calling out the head of the regime for ignoring his invitation to visit the southern border and to witness the disaster Dictator Biden has caused.  Meanwhile, we learn (and we do not believe this for a minute) but a new report says that the Biden regime is flying illegal alien families down into Mexico.  We do not believe this for a moment.

  74. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-OH 7th CD, is asking the House Republican leadership to begin impeachment hearings on slobbering Joe Biden.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is blasting the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill’ and warns that it is going to lead to a horrible uptick in inflation for the American people.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that the GOP ‘should use the debt ceiling to force a better infrastructure bill.’  Amen.  Elsewhere, Rep.

Trump is blasting Wisconsin for not cleaning up its voter rolls sooner.  Next, politicians are joining pediatricians in slamming the American Medical Association’s absolutely STUPID idea of NOT including gender markers on birth certificates.  Enough with WOKE!  In other political news, Rep.

  76. 2021 Saturday L: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– The sheriff of Albany County, New York, says that ‘if the accusations against Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov are true, he could arrest the crumbling governor for sexual harassment and assault.  Rep.

  78. 2022 Sunday: Folks, we are recording the latest Chi-Vi and monkeypox cases for presentation in 2023 but let us say this about the monkeypox: the fact that it is mostly an STD among gay men lessens our concern for the ‘victims.’  IF you want to end monkeypox in the United States, close the bathhouses, the gay bars, park restrooms, and encourage the homo men to return to practicing safe sex, if not chastity.  Without the so-called ‘gay gene’ being discovered- and believe you me, they are searching high and low for it- homosexuality is 99.99999-percent choice, not a matter of birth.  Will people be mad at us?  Sure, but we don’t give a flying hoot because it is important to always speak the truth.  A century from now- if our country still survives- generations then will look back on now as being a time of rampant lunacy, one that afflicted many otherwise sane people.  Look at transgenderism: that’s bullshit.  The fact that young people are being physically disfigured for life tells us at some point those mentally ill people are going to come back to their enablers and begin murdering them for having destroyed their lives via giving in to the ‘fad of the day.’  Let us return to common sense instead of nursing at the nasty teats of liberalism and reclaim our nation.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.

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:

You know the drill: when a group has been around as long as the Beach Boys, the archives are jam-packed material thus we have yet another compilation released on May 19, 2009: “Summer Love Songs.”  What one finds here are the following tunes: (1) “Don’t Worry Baby” (2) “Why Do Fools Fall in Love” (3) “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” (4) “God Only Knows” (5) “Surfer Girl” (6) “California Girls” (7) “Please Let Me Wonder” (8) “In the Parking Lot” (9) “Your Summer Dream” (10) “Kiss Me Baby” (11) “Hushabye” (12) “I’m So Young” (13) “Good to My Baby” (14) “Fallin’ in Love” (15) “Time to Get Alone” (16) “Our Sweet Love” (17) “Help Me, Rhonda” (18) “Keep an Eye on Summer” (19) “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on the Shoulder)” and (20) “Girls on the Beach.”  IF you have not yet brought the music of fun-sun-surf-hot chicks, fast cars, motorcycles, and all the rest of the music that made our summers so much delicious fun back in the 1960s and 1970s and even beyond, this is the way in which new fans and old-timers like us to accomplish this necessary task. Seek it out, don’t fret the cost, and buy it now- you will be glad you did.

218. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 06, 2022

It would be amazing what a killer drone swarm could accomplish, half a million killer drones laden with explosives crashing into the bridge of the Chi-Com fleet, onto the funnels taking out whatever protections there might be while the secondary swarm goes down the stacks into the interior of the ship setting off a chain of explosions sending the ships to the bottom of the Taiwan Strait. Drones can disable deck guns, jet engines, take out landing craft while submersible drones hammer the bellies of other vessels including submarines.

  72. 2021 Friday 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 $4.388 per gallon, $3.028 in Florida, $4.095 in Hawaii, and $3.869 in Washington state. [xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Minnesota: $3.032.  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- Laos: $4.972 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,611,223,182,940 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiv]  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 ALL OTHERS, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Japan with $1,251 trillion 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.
  73. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our esteemed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been on the job now for 136 days.  What’s more, it’s her 42nd day since her one and only visit to the southern border.  Wow.  Anyone else this derelict in his or her duty would have received their pink slip long ago.  
  74. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– On Newsmax, Sean Spicer of Spicer & Co., shared an incredible stat of EIGHT states with LESSER populations that the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the United States this year.  Rhode Island: 1,097,379.  Wyoming: 576,851.  North Dakota: 779,094.  Montana: 1,084,225.  Vermont: 643,077.  South Dakota: 886,667, Delaware: 989,943.  Alaska: 733,391.  What a statistic.  Meanwhile, healthcare services in Houston, Texas, are at the breaking point what with the thousands of sick illegal aliens flooding into the city.  What the hell is going on?
  75. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart in Washington, D.C.  Next, U.S. Central Command says that yes, indeed, it does appear that the Iranians attacked an Israeli tanker in the Gulf of Oman, something the lying Iranian scum continue saying ‘we did not do.’  Speaking of the Iranians, former ambassador to the United Nations from Israel Danny Danon says the U.S. should not negotiate anything with ‘the Butcher of Tehran,’ the new Iranian president, Ebrahim Raisi.  Finally, two Myanmar men were arrested in the U.S. for plotting to carry out an attack on their ambassador to the U.N.
  76. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– New York City mayoral candidate the famous Curtis Sliwa, Republican, stands against the vaccine passports demanded by outgoing New York Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, Democratic-Socialist.  Good for you.  Elsewhere, ‘rogue elements’ within the Centers for Disease Control report that 30,000 fully vaccinated people are coming down with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu weekly.  Meanwhile, as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci continues changing stories by the day, Rep. Mark Green, R-TN 7th CD, says ‘it’s wrong for the CDC to use OLD DATA to try to control things NOW.’
  77. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– A growing coalition of college and university students are urging the courts to stop the imposition of Chi-Vi vaccine mandates before students can return to classes in the fall.  Speaking of students, Joe Biden commits another unconstitutional act by extending the ban on student loan debt repayment until January 2022.  Who is paying the debt or worse, will lenders expect the missed payments when January arrives?  Elsewhere, as various state and local governments consider stuffing vaccine mandates onto everyone they can, we learn today that 72-percent of black Americans have not yet sought out vaccinations.  (Note- Chef Bea says that she won’t get the jab because every time white liberals tell blacks to do something for their own good, it never is).
  78. 2021 Friday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News–     Mike Lindell of My Pillow® fame gave a massive speech in Dallas, Texas, tonight in which, he began laying out the case for overturning the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election and several of the Senate races, i.e., Georgia, Arizona, and Michigan- that went to Democrats ONLY because they stole them.
  79. 2021 Friday L: 2020 Election Audit– Wisconsin expects to issue subpoenas to two counties in the state to hand a variety of 2020 Election information and equipment as that state’s audit commences.  Meanwhile, a new Quinnipiac poll says that 47-percent of Americans are concerned about voter fraud while 46-percent fear voter suppression.  Apparently, the other seven percent have no thoughts on the matter.
  80. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. dictator ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden unveiled ‘his’ target for 50-percent electric vehicle use in the country by 2030 today.  Big whoop.  Next, ‘Dictator Joe’ Biden is reportedly considering withholding federal funding from states, cities, colleges and universities, and anything else sucking away at the federal government’s sagging teats to force the numbers of vaccinations jabbed into arms to go UP.  (Note- how soon before the Biden regime demands everyone on Social Security, on welfare, and on other government assistance must get vaccinated or lose their monthly aid?  You know it MUST be in the works).  
  81. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Stephen Miller told Tucker Carlson on his Fox News Channel program this evening that ‘for the first time in U.S. history, we have a government that is truly disdainful of the American people.’  He said this in a conversation as to WHY the Biden regime loves ILLEGAL ALIENS more than it cares for its own citizens.   Wow.   Elsewhere, gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder says that ‘Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom and Andrew “Killer” Cuomo of New York have much alike- both will soon be out of office.’  Mr. Elder is seeking to replace “Nazi” Newsom while New Yorkers are demanding the ‘Love Gov’ resign now.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Political News II– We learn today from author Julie Kelly of American Greatness that the 550 people held without bail in the D.C. hoosegow for their roles in the FALSE FLAG OPERATION conducted via Communist China-Democratic Party-RINO collusion on January 6, 2021, they will remain in jail- sans bail as we mentioned- until sometime next year when the SHOW TRIALS will begin.  The Democrats seek to use these unfortunate political prisoners, people regularly abused by the jail staff, so as to gin up anger at Republicans ahead of the 2022 Mid-Terms.  Not only is this incredibly abusive, but it’s also equally un-American and the authoritarian regime must free these people on bond as they did Antifa and Black Lives Matter criminals.  Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi[xv] and the Dems ‘let down’ Capitol Hill law enforcement on that day by allowing what happened to happen.
  83. 2021 Friday P: Political News III– In a major slap to the face of regime dictator Joe Biden, 9-11 families have said they don’t want him anywhere near the upcoming memorial events.  Ouch.  In other political news, Rep. Carlos A. Giménez, R-FL 26th CD, blasted the Biden regime by saying the ‘White House pick for ambassador to communist Cuba demonstrates the regime errs when it comes to Cuba.’  Next, Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, DS-MO 1st CD, says ‘it’s no one’s business that she spent more than $200,000 on private security as she screeches about DEFUNDING THE POLICE.’  Hence, you know why we have bestowed the nickname on her that we have. [xvi]  Finally, the Department of Justice is urging a federal judge to keep the unconstitutional moratorium on evictions in place.  We say, “FIGHT IT!”
  84. 2021 Friday Q: U.S. Senate News I– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is calling for the august body to reconvene on Saturday so they can stuff the ‘infrastructure bill’ through and onto ‘Dictator Joe’s’ desk.  Speaking of the aforementioned ‘bill,’[xvii] a new study by the University of Pennsylvania says that the ‘infrastructure bill’ will NOT drive-up U.S. GDP no matter how much the liberals claim it will.
  85. 2021 Friday R: Miscellaneous News I– The gun that killed “Billy the Kid”- a Colt single-action revolver with a 7.5-inch barrel is going on the auction block and what’s more, auctioneers expect the antique firearm to pull in $2 million or more which would make it the most expensive antique firearm in history.  Sheriff Pat Garrett shot and killed William H. Bonney, aka “Billy the Kid,” 140 years ago.
  86. 2021 Friday S: Business News– Inflation is afflicting ALL Americans.  Sean Spicer of Spicer & Co. on Newsmax shared alarming statistics regarding the increasing costs of the Biden/Democratic Party’s unparalleled spending.  First, milk has gone up 5.6-percent.  Next, car rentals have shot up a whopping 87.7-percent.  Used cars have gone up 45.2-percent.  Gasoline has gone up by 45.1-percent.  Laundry machines- washers and dryers- have gone up 29.4-percent.  Airfare has increased by 24.6-percent while hotel rooms have gone up 16.9-percent.  Furniture prices have increased by 8.6-percent, bacon by 8.4-percent, TVs by 7.6-percent, fresh fruit 7.3-percent, shoes 6.5-percent, and fresh fish by 6.4-percent.  Inflation is a tax on everyone, but it singles out the poor the most.  They already struggle to survive in this life and when everything they buy goes up and up, they are lost.  Thank you, Joe Biden, thank you, Democrats.
  87. 2021 Friday T: Economic News– The Biden regime is CELEBRATING the jobs figures for July: 943,000 NEW JOBS and what’s more, unemployment has fallen to 5.4-percent.  But wait- there’s more and it’s not that stupendous.  Observe: of the 943,000 new jobs, 240,000 were GOVERNMENT JOBS which means the Deep State continues to grow.  Moreover, 380,000 jobs in the hospitality industry underwent creation even though employers are having a hell of a time locating people to fill more of these jobs.  Add to that the fact that when Republicans are in the White House, Democrats dismiss these jobs as ‘hamburger-flipper jobs,’ and other derogatory names.  Even more important, ONLY 27,000 manufacturing jobs were created, and retail jobs fell by 5,500 jobs which also is not good.  Continue blowing your horn, Biden regime, but you have done NOTHING.  
  88. 2021 Friday U: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Things continue looking bad for Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, DS-NY, as additional voices continue their demands for him to step down.  Heck, one of his accusers has now filed a criminal complaint against the ogre.  At a fundraiser in New York, President Donald J. Trump said things are looking bad for the serial sexual harasser.  (Note- NYC mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa says the ‘taxpayers will have to cover hypocrite Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s legal bills.’  That does indeed suck).  Next, the family of slain Capitol Hill protester Ashli Babbitt is filing a $10 million wrongful death suit against the Capitol Hill officer who shot her dead as she was going through a window.
  89. 2021 Friday V: Religion News– Rabbi Yaakov Menken on One America News today said that ‘being anti-Israel is a cover for being anti-Semitic.’  (Rabbi Menken is managing director for the Coalition of Jewish Values).
  90. 2021 Friday W: Florida State News– After Joe Biden attempted to slam “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis yesterday by saying when asked about the Floridian governor, ‘governor who?’, Governor DeSantis said this morning, “I wonder what else he has forgotten?”  Meaning, everything because the dictator is frigging senile.  Meanwhile, many Florida school districts are saying they are going to defy the governor’s orders on NO MASKS in school.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Texas State News– Even though Washington, D.C., is growing tired of the fugitive Texas Democrats and would like them to take their ‘super-spreader selves’ back home, the Lone Star scum expect to remain in the District of Columbia while the 2nd Special Session of the state legislature is in effect.  (Republicans, we hope you take note of this behavior and begin employing it yourselves).
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Sports News I– The International Olympic Committee has stripped two Belarussian coaches of their accreditation and Japan has sent them home.  Meanwhile, due to all the WOKE BS going on, NBC’s ratings for its Olympics coverage are in the crapper and heading down the drain.  Go figure.
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Pediatricians across the United States are upbraiding the American Medical Association’s effort to remove gender from birth certificates.  One of the stupidest things we have ever heard.  We hope the pediatricians win.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: South Dakota State News– With Governor Kristi Noem’s blessings, the 81st Sturgis Motorcycle Rally kicks off for its annual 10-day event.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Arizona State News– Copper State lawmaker Senator Tony Navarrete underwent arrest in connection with a 2019 child sex crime.  So far, the state senator has given no comment.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Big Tech News– Twitter suspends a podcaster for saying that the tranny weightlifter from New Zealand is a ‘man’ which he is.  What a load of crap.
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Federal and State Court News– A judge refuses to block the construction of the obscene Barack Hussein Obama ‘presidential library and compound’ in Chicago.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1683 what with a $208 million jackpot on the line: 09, 18, 40, 46, 69, and Mega 09.  Out of 80,316 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,621 apiece.
  99. 2022 Saturday:  Alas, the Chi-Coms are firing missiles over the island nation of Taiwan.  At least they were this past Thursday.  It’s also amazing how our numbers went straight down after we shared how the Taiwanese could destroy the Chi-Com invasion fleet- when- or more likely- IF it ever comes.  It would be amazing what a killer drone swarm could accomplish, half a million killer drones laden with explosives crashing into the bridge of the Chi-Com fleet, onto the funnels taking out whatever protections there might be while the secondary swarm goes down the stacks into the interior of the ship setting off a chain of explosions sending the ships to the bottom of the Taiwan Strait.  Drones can disable deck guns, jet engines, take out landing craft while submersible drones hammer the bellies of other vessels including submarines.  Look, the Chi-Coms do not like anyone speaking negatively of them but we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM do not do this for the numbers.  No, we do it because it’s a calling and also believe that Taiwan is the legitimate government in exile of the mainland, NOT the communist regime in Beijing.  Saying this, we know they will make attempts on our lives (as they seemingly have in the past with letters addressed to George Noory) but to the Chi-Coms, we say, “F**K YOU.”  Chef Hector “El Chilote” Santanamos De Soto.

[xv] “Mumbles” Pelosi says she’s ‘confident’ that Democrats will maintain the majority in 2022.

[xvi] Even more fascinating is the fact that Business Insider reports that Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, has spent a massive $350,000 from his campaign coffers on increased security, Senator Jon Ossoff, also a DS-from the Peach State has spent $162,107 on personal security, and strangely, Senator Mark Kelly, D(S)-AZ has spent $247,487 on personal security.  All of this money comes out of their campaign coffers.  Question is, why do these losers need increased security?  We haven’t heard of any threats on their lives.  

[xvii] Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill is little more than a trap.

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

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

  57. 2020 Monday:  President Donald J. Trump signed an executive order today in which, he forbids American companies (Google comes to mind as does Microsoft and numerous other big tech firms) from hiring foreign scab workers to displace higher-paid American workers.  Far too often in today’s America, American firms force American workers to train foreign workers to do their jobs and then send them packing.  This is not right and what the president did today is amazing.  NO more displacing Americans with foreign scabs.  Enough is enough.  Meanwhile, the stats are in for shootings in Chicago over the weekend: at least 33 people shot, 9 slain- including a 9-year-old boy and when compared to last July in Chicago, murders in the Windy City in July are up 139-percent.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at this point in time, there have been more shootings than ALL of last year’s combined.  What the hell is up with these BIG BLUE CITIES?  Where the hell are Black Lives Matter, you know, the Marxist, racist organization?  We thought black lives ‘matter?’  Apparently not.
  58. 2020 Monday A: President Donald J. Trump gave Chi-Com ‘video’ (spying) ap Tik-Tok until September 15 of this year to allow Microsoft to buy the intelligence gathering platform or to get out of the United States.  Boot them out ASAP!  Meanwhile, Illinois state Representative La Shawn ford, Democrat, calls to abolish teaching history in schools across the state as- according to him- it ‘leads to white privilege and a racist society.’  Will it ever stop?

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

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

[ii] We began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

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