Bush administration publicly promise that the U.S. will NO longer torture terrorist suspects.  Wow.  We bet they still are only from behind the curtain.
  49. 2004 Saturday: It looks like Ralph Nader’s time is up leading the Green Party.  The Greens go with Texas lawyer David Cobb to become their 2004 presidential nominee.  Not that it matters.  In other news, Palestinian thug Yasser Arafat ‘promises’ that his people will refrain from launching attacks on the Athens, Greece, Summer Olympics.  Folks, use some neutron bombs on this inhuman garbage.  The world should not have to fear terrorists.

Bush administration is upset that the New York Times- the so-called newspaper of record- has exposed a secret government program that allows the tracking of terrorists via their financial actions.  Wow.  Never flipping fails.  Anyhow, President Bush calls it ‘disgraceful.’  (Note- send the editor of the damned newspaper to prison, George.  Abraham Lincoln sure the f**k did).

  54. 2009 Friday: Jihadists in Baghdad attack a market where local residents are going about their daily lives when a bomb goes off delivering another 13 poor souls to Allah and leaving dozens more most likely wishing they could have gone, too.  What the hell is wrong with these barbaric people?

  57. 2012 Tuesday: The police chief of Khartoum, Sudan, says ‘enough is enough’ and orders a violent crackdown on demonstrators screeching for CHANGE during the Arab Spring.  Meanwhile, some maggots set off a bomb outside the Tunisian embassy in Tripoli, Libya.  No injuries are reported.

  60. 2015 Friday: In yet another ruling designed to destroy the United States of America, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is a fundamental right for citizens and forces it onto all 50 states.  This is against the will of the people and yet, the court in a 5-4 decision takes it out of the hands of ALL Americans.
  61. 2016 Sunday: After a month-long struggle to reclaim the city of Fallujah, Iraqi forces finally vanquish the ISIS scum in an all-out blitz.  God bless ‘em!   Meanwhile, Panama opens the third set of locks- ones that cost the country approximately $5.25 billion (we believe funded by communist China)- that will virtually double the canal’s shipping traffic.  Elsewhere, communists attack a white pride rally in Sacramento, California.  Numerous marchers are stabbed by members of Antifa and Black Lives Matter who swoop in and cause a great deal of mayhem.

  63. 2018 Tuesday: Shock of shocks, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds one of President Donald J. Trump’s travel bans against mostly Muslim nations where terrorism flourishes but also Venezuela, North Korea, and one or two others.  Elsewhere, as usual, the Palestinians are causing trouble via launching incendiary balloons over the wall and into Israel where they ignite fires and cause problems for civilized people.  Thus, the Israeli air force launches airstrikes on a convoy of vehicles that intelligence sources identified as the culprits lighting them up.  NO more balloons.
  64. 2019 Wednesday: At the airport in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, inspectors discover approximately 5,000 turtles concealed in luggage bound for India.  The smugglers are arrested.  Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald J. Trump continues demanding the delinquent Germans pay their NATO obligations.  The Germans have long enjoyed a free ride in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization but it’s about to end.  President Trump asks a pertinent question: ‘why are we protecting YOU from the Russians again?’ It seems as though the Germans want a cozy relationship with Vladimir Putin, perhaps to rekindle the ‘good old days’ of 1945-1991?
  65. 2020 Friday:  The FBI now is launching a task force to track down the violent rioters in Washington, D.C., who have damaged, vandalized, or destroyed various monuments, churches, and other property within the federal enclave.  Round ‘em up, prosecute them, and send them to federal prison.  Worthless scumbags.

Eleanor Norton Holmes- as a voting member- as well as surround the White House with angry mobs.  California Rep. Maxine Waters, Democrat, one of the biggest crooks in the lower chamber says, ‘if the district does not receive statehood, it’s because of…RACISM!’  Screw her.

  74. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I–  Okay, we have rolled the day counter back on ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris seeing as how she forced herself to make an appearance yesterday at the El Paso Sector on the southern border.  Today is Day No. 1 in which, she has not shown up on the job.  By our count, today is Day No. 95 in which, she has been placed in charge by Joe Biden’s earpiece of solving the border crisis.  (Note- minefields would do one hell of a job as would rattlesnakes and alligators).  Anyhow, here are the stats regarding illegal alien numbers and cost of caring for them as compiled and released by One America News: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens: $526,585,632.  (2) Cost this Year of caring for these illegal aliens: $193,403,338,752.  Next, number of illegal aliens who either swam the Rio Grande or climbed the fence (or overstayed their visas): 1,982,229.  Finally, (4) estimated total number of illegal aliens running amok in the country: 35,982,228.  (Note- as we say every day, since the inception of this bold, culinary professional-run blog- back in 2009- we have said the numbers were 35-50 million wet—-s back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are between 75-100 million.  Too damned many!)  (OAN cited sources- Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  75. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– The El Paso, Texas, holding pens for illegal alien minors is under close scrutiny over the reports of sexual abuse including rapes, violence, and other negative societal behaviors going on between the inmates there.  Shame.  Where’s “Kooky Kamala” Harris when you need her to actually do some work?  Speaking of the disaster, a new Harvard poll says that ’80-percent of Americans view the southern border as an out-and-out disaster, a calamity, a catastrophe.’  Amen.
  76. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– John “Perpetual Wars” Bolton says the change in government in Israel may give the slobberer-in-chief, “Cho-Mo Joe” Biden an out on the U.S. returning to the Iran nuclear deal.  Regarding Iran, there are reports that the senile usurper may lift the U.S. sanctions from mass-murderer and crazed jihadist, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.  Wow.  Is that what Barack Hussein Obama is saying in your earpiece?
  77. 2021 Saturday I: Health and Medical Alerts– Republican senators are urging the CDC to end mask mandates for all public transportation.   In other healthcare news, Johnson & Johnson settles its portion of the opioid crises cases with a $230 million payout. 
  78. 2021 Saturday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Two cities in Vermont have allowed illegal aliens the right to vote in local elections which means they will be voting in ALL elections.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, the Arizona 2020 election audit wraps up with the report coming out sometime next month.  Democrats’ teeth are chattering in fear.  In other elections/voting news, former Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga 9th congressional district, says that the ‘Biden regime’s DOJ is going after the Peach State’s new election laws because they failed in pushing through their H.R. 1 / S. 1, aka the “For the People Act,” aka “The John Lewis Voting Rights Act” or whatever crap they are calling it today.  Sounds about right.
  79. 2021 Saturday K: Political News I– A pair of Capitol Hill police officers- one of them a tatted-up freak-o-zoid- met with Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd to discuss their trauma from the Democrat Party’s FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021.  These flipping losers believe the entire Capitol Hill Police Department deserves a medal for this ginned-up ersatz action instigated by Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  (Note- whatever happened to codes of professionalism?  Since when do we have a member of law enforcement with tats up and down the sides of their necks, tats no one we know can identify?  This crap would not have flown even a decade ago).
  80. 2021 Saturday L: Political News II–  Former Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan told Newsmax that ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ ‘border visit’ was all ‘optics,’ a ‘photo op.’  He said that were it a serious visit, it would have been to ground zero where the waves of illegal aliens crash onto the shore around the clock: the Rio Grande Valley.  That’s where one goes to see the honest-to-God border insanity.  Speaking of the border calamity, Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, says that the CBP needs resources, not ‘pats on the back.’  (Hint-hint- that means YOU, “Kooky Kamala”).  
  81. 2021 Saturday M: Political News III– Speaking of “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka “Willie Brown’s Mattress,” says that “EXTREME PROGRESS” has been made on the southern border meaning NONE has been made, it’s wide open.  She continues blaming President Donald J. Trump for the disaster befalling the border which anyone with half-a-brain or more knows is BULLS**T.  Trump handed the Biden regime a quiet border and had the goober in the White House continued building the wall and enforcing the laws, the border would be even better.   (Note- President Trump said it today, ‘the Biden regime is a complete and total disaster’- “I told you so.”  Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that when it comes to being the ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is the “GREAT PRETENDER.”  No matter what she says or does, the GOP continues lambasting the extremely unpopular, sleep-her-way-to-the-top, failed politician.
  82. 2021 Saturday N: Political News IV– Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, is going to speak at the state’s GOP convention.  In other political news, famed legal scholar and professor, Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Rudy Giuliani- America’s mayor- was denied due process and the loss of his law license in New York state simply won’t be upheld in the courts.’  Awesome.   In other news, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, says that MOST Americans disagree with Criminal Race Theory- uh, ‘Critical Race Theory.’  Amen to this, too.  Elsewhere, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, brought his FREEDOM TOUR to Charlotte, North Carolina, today.  You can smell freedom in the air, folks.  Meanwhile- and this interesting so pay note- Democrats are backing off DEFUND THE POLICE going into 2022 as it’s a nonstarter for most Americans. 
  83. 2021 Saturday O: Political News V– Democrats continue their war on sensible, common-sense Trump-era regulations by trying to topple as many of them as they can.  Meanwhile, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, continues pushing members of the ultra-left-wing, anti-black conservative group.  These flipping hacks and losers won’t allow anyone who does not espouse their bigoted, racist insanity into their group.  (Note- Rep. Donalds- how about forming the CONSERVATIVE BLACK CAUCUS?)  Elsewhere, George Floyd’s brother committed a cardinal sin to the leftists and said that “ALL LIVES MATTER.”  Finally, Missouri’s state senate approves a bill that ends a showdown on abortion in the state.
  84. 2021 Saturday P: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– The suspected shooter in a horrible crime that occurred in the Bronx several days back in which, a lone gunman fired multiple shots while dancing around the intended victim.  The reason for the dancing was because the victim’s young siblings were trying to shield his body from the gangbanging thug that appeared to fire off an entire magazine of rounds.  Where is drooling Joe Biden on this intolerable crime?  (Note- Joe’s down in the basement playing pocket pool).  Elsewhere, in the always-peaceful metropolis of Portland, Oregon, (yeah, right) riots break out follow an officer-involved shooting.
  85. 2021 Saturday Q: Weather News I– The U.S. is bracing for a record heat wave and Seattle, Washington, reports its hottest day on record- ever.  Oh, the Green New Deal losers are going to be screeching like the banshees they are.  (Note- folks, it’s summertime.  If we had plentiful energy and the Democrats didn’t squander our water resources, everything would be fine).   Meanwhile, thanks to the ongoing drought in the Golden State- one easily fixed by the Democrats- the Golden State is having a banner year with rattlesnakes pouring out of their cubbyholes, crevices, and woodpiles.
  86. 2021 Saturday R: Natural Disasters– A 2.6-magnitude earthquake hit Woodlawn, Maryland, early this morning.  No reports of injuries or property damage.  Maryland seems an odd place for earthquakes. 
  87. 2021 Saturday S: Human-Caused Disasters– Following the collapse of one-half of a 12-story condominium in Surfside, Florida, early Thursday morning, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis has given Surfside Mayor Charles Burkett a brief time to determine whether residents in the remaining upright portion of the building should evacuate.  New reports suggest that the building back in 2018 saw an engineering report suggesting structural damage that needed to be fixed.  The building is about 40 years old and has been reportedly sinking 2-3 centimeters per year.  Not good.  (Note- if we lived in the building and didn’t disappear in the collapse, we would vacate the place as of yesterday).
  88. : Religion News– The U.S. Catholic bishops show their spinelessness (and the fact that they lean way far left) as they could not arrive at a policy of denying Holy Communion to Pro-Death politicians such as dribbling Joe Biden and others of his ilk.  (Note- they are afraid of losing their tax-exempt status which in our view is even worse than being craven leftists).
  89. 2021 Saturday U: NASA, Space, and UFO News– The Pentagon report on UFOs says that ‘yes, indeed they are real’ and that ‘we know little to nothing about them.’  Not very comforting but this is the most they have ever honestly said on the subject so we should be grateful, we guess.
  90. 2021 Saturday V: Moron News I– At the infamous Philly naked bike ride, participants are required to wear…MASKS.  Go figure.
  91. 2021 Saturday W: Fake News I– We learned today that FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS continue.  Two newly erected statues of George Floyd, one in New York and one in New Jersey, were spray-painted and tagged with EVIL WHITE SUPREMACIST SAYINGS.  Yeah, right, what a load of crap.  This crap will go on and imbeciles in the Biden regime and Democratic Party will continue braying like the sheeple they are of the dangers of ‘white supremacism,’ blah, blah, blah.  Anyhow, the NYC Hate Crimes Division is investigating these scurrilous scalawags.  Friends, this is a classic case of FAKE NEWS, a ginned-up bunch of crap.  Let’s get this straight- the statues are white and someone threw black paint on them.  The group that supposedly did this- Patriot Front- sounds like crap created by the liberals.  Pay NO attention but hey- other statues are defaced and torn down so why not ones dedicated to a low-level, POS, loser like Mr. Floyd?  It is what it is.
  92. 2021 Saturday X: California State News– Isn’t it amazing how this always works out?  Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom suddenly produces $5.2 billion to pay back rents for everyone requiring help with their rents due to the Chi-Com virus.  The POS loser is facing a recall election in a few months and now like a good magician, he’s able to pull some rabbits out of his hat.  (Note- he is still going to be voted out of office as everyone hates them).
  93. 2021 Saturday Y: Louisiana State News– Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards has vetoed Senate Bill 118 that would permit concealed carry of firearms sans any type of permit.  Keep working at it, Louisianans.
  94. 2021 Saturday Z: Sports News I– After a devastating crash at the Tour d’ France, race organizers are urging spectators to use precautions.
  95. 2021 Saturday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3572 with a $59 million jackpot on the line: 11, 19, 24, 32, 44, and Mega 04.  Out of 141,401 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $24,716.  The winning tickets were sold in (1) Chevron in Eureka, CA 95501 and (2) 7-Eleven in El Cajon, CA 92021.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #858 with an $88 million pot on the line: 08, 31, 39, 43, 60, and Powerball 17.  Out of 48,877 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $26,989.
  96. 2022 Sunday: Stick around…

Trump is such an ‘evil ogre,’ they won’t be providing any funds or other support to the convention.  They claim that Mr. Trump has said things negative to women, illegal aliens, and homosexuals, most of which is either blown out of proportion or straight-out bulls**t.   (Note- Big Tech is showing its hand already, folks…)
  55. 2017 Sunday: Emanuel Macron’s political party wins big in the second round of the legislative elections.  Elsewhere, a new ‘health study’ in the United States says it’s wise to avoid the use of coconut oil (which makes the absolute best popcorn) and go with something like canola oil or other such U.S.-produced vegetable oils.  A year or two later, there would be much discussion as to whether canola oil is actually a cancer-causing oil?  We understand the best oils to use are either olive or avocado and yes, coconut oil, too.  Avoid the other crap.
  56. 2018 Monday: President Donald J. Trump announces the establishment of a sixth branch of the U.S. military, the U.S. Space Force with which to counter the threats of communist China, Vladimir Putin’s Russia, India, Iran, and other states seeking to control outer space.   Elsewhere, a dimwitted Palestinian thug tries to sneak into Israel.  While fiddling with automated border technology way beyond the farthest realms of his intelligence, the defensive device detonates and kills the imbecile.  Of course, the Palestinians are angry over this incident of suicide by stupidity.
  57. 2019 Tuesday: An International Tribunal in London announces that communist China has been harvesting the organs of marginalized peoples in prison camps on an industrial scale.  This should be shocking to everyone that this communist POS country would commit crimes against humanity on this scale yet the United Nations and nations around the globe say…nothing.  Crickets.  Free Mainland China NOW!  Meanwhile in Hong Kong, Carrie Lam, leader of the independent former British Crown Colony apologizes for having introduced the Beijing-sponsored ‘extradition bill’ that would send accused criminals to communist Mainland China for trial.  She withdrew it because people demanding freedom forced her to do it, she had no choice.
  58. 2020 Thursday: China’s ‘gift to the world,’ the coronavirus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, created in Wuhan and dispatched around the world, continues causing problems.  Here are the global stats for today: 8,400,320 confirmed cases, 450,435 confirmed deaths, and 4,109,183 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the stats: 2,230,920 confirmed cases, 120,147 confirmed deaths, and 698,390 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist China American Institute of Culinary Politics- The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 161,099 confirmed cases, 5,290 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 744 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 639 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Democratic-Socialist hellhole of Washington, here are the stats: 27,145 confirmed cases, 1,245 confirmed deaths, and but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these political scumbags, shame.  As for unemployment claims, more than 1.5 million Americans filed for unemployment claims last week.
  59. 2020 Thursday A: Here are the stock market closing numbers for today: the DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,080.10, DOWN 39.51 points, a 0.15% drop.  The NASDAQ closed at: 9,943.05, UP 32.52 points, an increase of 0.33%.  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,154.34, UP 1.85 points, an increase of 0.59%.
  60. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 178,586,006 confirmed cases, +398,536, 3,866,633  confirmed deaths, +8,501 and 163,103,022 confirmed recoveries, +43,712.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,393,170 confirmed cases, UP 13,382 from yesterday’s reporting, 616,917 confirmed deaths, UP 495,[xv] and 28,675,644 confirmed recoveries, UP 35,837.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xvi]  
  61. 2021 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,011 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 160,638 deaths  
  62. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,807,850 confirmed cases, 63,292 confirmed deaths, and 2,069,640 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,356,248 confirmed cases, 37,555 confirmed deaths, and 2,141,281 confirmed recoveries, more or less the SAME numbers.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,214 confirmed cases, 510 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 449,080 confirmed cases, 5,862 confirmed deaths, and 220,934 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kansas: they have 316,539 confirmed cases, 5,129 confirmed deaths, and 306,682 confirmed recoveries. [xvii]   
  63. 2021 Friday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,769 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,061 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Cabo Verde, 121st country on the list: 31,910 cases of the virus, 281 confirmed deaths and 30,907 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]     
  64. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,290.08, DOWN 533.37 points (-1.58%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,030.38, DOWN 130.97 points (-0.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,166.45, DOWN -55.41 points (-1.31%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.50 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.20%).  The price of GOLD is $1,763.90 per troy oz., -5.10 (-0.29%) while the price of SILVER is $25.85 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,035.40 per troy oz, -5.60 (-0.54%) while the price of COPPER is $4.12 per pound, -0.04 (-0.84%).[xix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,465.42 per troy oz, -31.31 (-1.25%).[xx] The price of RHODIUM is $22,000.00 per troy oz., -750.00 (-3.30%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $590,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%). [xxi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.66.     In Mauritanian Ouguiya, one greenback equals 357.00 and in Mauritian Rupee, a buck equals 40.75 and in Moldovan Leu, one dollar equals 17.74 of theirs.[xxii]        
  65. 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 over $4.228 per gallon, $2.953 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.630 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.724.  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- El Salvador: $3.797 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,421,896,732,639 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Saudi Arabia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea with $131 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxvi]
  66. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says of Joe Biden and ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris (by the way, this is Day #87 she has held this job, folks, and has yet to do one day’s work in this extremely important job), that ‘neither of them have any intention of visiting or fixing the border.’  We are sending checks to the Texas-Arizona effort to continue building the wall.  (Note- we would send even more money if they were going to lay in minefields, seed the area along the Rio Grande with loads of rattlesnakes, and other anti-personnel obstacles and barriers.  Something must happen here).
  67. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Palestinians were set to receive 1 million doses of the Chi-Vi vaccine from Israel and then refused them by claiming they were going to expire soon.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, as Canada continues to follow the path forward blazed by Mao Zedong in the 1940s and 1950s, U.S. businesses are concerned over the failure of the Canucks to reopen their border so normal business and tourism can recommence.  (Note- we think Ottawa is going down a dark path and are using the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as their excuse for cutting off communications between our two countries.  None of us want to visit that Third World country again, especially after they interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election- that means YOU, Justin Trudeau, which means YOU, Dominion Voting Systems, which means you, YOU Marx-loving losers).
  68. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Unvaccinated West Point cadets are under a great deal of pressure to get the COVID-19 vaccine or face solitary confinement.  Look, most of the U.S. military is not taking the vaccine so why should the military cadets?  Many of us remember the innumerable problems that surrounded U.S. military personnel given anthrax and other oddball vaccinations prior to George W. Bush’s illegal war in Iraq.  We stand with the cadets.   Next- and this is a good one- apparently, the AstraZeneca Chi-Com vaccine is NOT GOOD ENOUGH to get tickets to see Bruce “The Boring” Springsteen on Broadway.  Alas, what is GOOD ENOUGH- the Johnson & Johnson soul-stealing vaccine?  We didn’t want to see “The Loser” anyway.
  69. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Forever-pissed Stacey Abrams, election-stealing expert says she is backing Senator Joe Manchin’s voting compromise that will make Election Day a national holiday as well as to cement 15 days of early voting.  If an angry cow such as Ms. Abrams is supporting it, then it can’t be good.  (Note- we always hope that Senator Machin will ‘do the right thing’ but it’s clear that he is as malleable as is silly putty under the right pressure.
  70. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News– Rep. Andrew Garbarino, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that Joe Biden is not tough enough on the cybersecurity front.   In other Joe Biden news, former White House physician and current Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th congressional district, is demanding the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ feeble old “Gropin’ Joe” Biden must take a cognitive test and even more importantly, release the results to the American people.  We wholeheartedly concur.
  71. 2021 Friday K: Political News I– As questions continue to rise over what exactly happened on January 06, 2021, and the cacophony of misinformation swirling around the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION the nation has ever seen, brave patriots are now asking questions as to what the FBI and their pro-Beijing Director Chris Wray knew and when did they know.  Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, perhaps one of the greatest patriots the country has ever seen, asked the top question regarding this ginned-up mob of Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter: “Did the FBI animate the events of that day?”  (Note- we suspect they were in the thick of it, hence WHY there are more than 14,000 hours of video from that day that the public has yet to see.  We do know police on the backside of the Capitol Building waved the mob inside.  We also know that ONCE you see Confederate battle flags flying, you know the FALSE FLAG OPERATION is underway because much like the Tea Party, they never carried rebel flags, Nazi flags, or signs calling for the death of politicians.  There are not enough prisons to silence all of us.
  72. 2021 Friday L: Political News II– Two losers both on the View- lard-lady Meghan McCain (a RINO if ever one existed) and the extremely angry and belligerent (and unattractive) Whoopi Goldberg came close to trading blows on the highly-overrated program over angry old Joe Biden’s treatment of a female reporter.  Yeah, that was pretty bad.  While we dislike both these women, we would love to see ‘Lard Lady’ plant one smack dab in the puss of both Whoopi and ‘Joyless’ Joy Behar.  That would be Pay-per-View TV,  folks.
  73. 2021 Friday M: Political News III– Vice President Mike Pence speaking at the Faith and Freedom Conference in Florida was heckled and booed as a ‘traitor.’  The offenders were escorted out and the vice president’s speech continues.  Meanwhile, there’s a growing clamor for Joe Biden to ask for the resignation of “Kooky Kamala” Harris so he can replace the gibbering jackal with someone actually willing to do the job.  There also is a new bill coming forward demanding that before Willie Brown’s mattress can visit Europe, she visit the southern border FIRST.  Wow.
  74. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas said today- without giving us a single incidence (other than the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, which is BULLS**T) that domestic terrorism, aka white ‘supremacism’ is the federal government’s number one foe, NOT Chi-Com MSS agents, NOT violent jihadists, NOT Russian agents, NOT Antifa (remember- they’re just a philosophy), and not Black Lives Matter but white folks.  We would encourage Secretary Mayorkas to begin putting up all the threats that have been stopped so we can have some verification that what he claims is true.  Otherwise, we look at it as little more than propaganda.
  75. 2021 Friday O: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The husband of Ashli Babbitt still seeks answers as to WHY a federal police officer felt so emboldened that he could shoot dead an unarmed woman climbing through a broken window and without warning of the impending shot?  Folks, everyone knows that what happened on January 06, 2021, has been transformed into mythic proportions but the black officer who shot her dead must come forward and answer the questions the American people demand to KNOW.  We believe that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- the nonagenarian clinging to the gavel in the House mandated that some people had to die so they could spin the FALSE FLAG OPERATION for the next 60 years which led to the death of Officer Brian Sicknick and U.S. military veteran Babbitt.  Call us ‘conspiracy theorists’ but don’t you think that it’s rather peculiar what actually happened with all of the lies we’ve been told?
  76. 2021 Friday P: Big Tech News– A major poll shows that the majority of Americans believe it’s time to break up Big Tech.
  77. 2021 Friday Q: Religion News– Catholic bishops are moving closer to denying Pro-Death Joe Biden communion over his crazy stance on abortion at all stages and the tacit approval of the selling of baby body parts which friends, puts us on a par with the frigging Chi-Coms.  We contend they should excommunicate EVERY politician supporting the Pro-Death Movement just as they should anyone seeking to topple the Hyde Amendment.
  78. 2021 Friday R: U.S. Senate News– Conniving Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, says he is ‘going to force a vote on S. 1, the former “For the People Act,’ newly renamed the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2021,” next week in the Senate and will do it sans any input from the Republicans.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday S: Economic News– The Fed’s Neel Kashkari advises against rate hikes until sometime towards the end of 2023.  Meanwhile, because of cancellations across 2020-2021, American Airlines has had to refund more than $12 billion in airline tickets.
  80. 2021 Friday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1669 with a $30 million pot on the line: 14, 36, 44, 46, 53, and Mega 18.  Out of 42,648 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $23,671.
  81. 2021 Friday U: The Wrap Up–  Late breaking news this evening says that- voila!- today, the Biden regime froze military aid to the Ukraine- including lethal weaponry.  This occurs smack dab on the heels of uh, the, uh, Putin-Biden summit in Geneva, Switzerland.  Now, we have been around long enough to recall that when President Donald J. Trump SUPPOSEDLY held up aid to Ukraine to ‘get dirt’ on the Bidens, Democrats impeached him- the first time.  Wow.  Where’s the little bitch, Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district?  What about that ogre, Rep. Jerrold “Tub of Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district?  Where are the calls for “IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!”  Where are they?  Not long after this report appeared, the Biden regime said it ‘was nonsense.’  Sure, right.  You gave Vladimir Putin the oil pipeline and now you’ve finished the job you and Barack Hussein Obama started; you are giving the Ukraine to Vladimir Putin.  My, my, my, the cockroaches always come out at night (and in Hawaii, they fly)…
  82. 2022 Saturday: Everyone knows the drill…

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

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

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[iv] NONE of us believe we will live long enough to promote the music of Ravi Shankar although we wish we could.  Ditto classical music but then- you just never know.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of the Blues Project within the next five years or so.

[vi] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[vii] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[viii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time, we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so, please remain vigilant.

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

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

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

[xii] We hope to share the music of this legendary artist, the VOICE of the Summer of Love and far beyond.  “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…”

[xiii] 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.    “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band” appeared on Tuesday, 22-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[xiv] Not sure as to when we will do the music of Bruce Springsteen.

  58. 2017 Wednesday: In Game 3 of the 2017 NBA Finals, the Golden State Warriors beat defending champion, the Cleveland Cavaliers by a final score of 118-113.  The Warriors came back from trailing the Cavaliers through part of the 3rd and almost all the 4th period before retaking the lead and beating the Cleveland team to win a 3-0 advantage.  Game 4 will occur on Friday night, June 09, 2017.  Meanwhile, in Tehran, ISIS carries out its first suicide attack in the terrorist haven of Iran attacking both parliament and Ayatollah Khomeini’s mausoleum killing at least 12 and wounding numerous others.  Finally, according to On This Day- cops in Mozambique warn bald-headed men to be careful when they are out and about as five have been murdered for the ‘gold believed to be within their heads.’  Haven’t heard this one before but watch out!

  60. 2019 Friday: In Game 4 of the 2019 NBA Finals, in Oakland, the Toronto Raptors beat the injury-plagued Golden State Warriors by a final score of 105-92 to take a 3-1 series lead.  Meanwhile, the United Nations says at least four million Venezuelans have abandoned their country since 2015 due to the out-of-control socialist government of Cuban-bought dictator Nicolas Maduro.  UN: Do something about it.  This is what the civilized nations did following World War II- this is your flipping job!

  63. 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 294,785 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 164,864 deaths

  65. 2021 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,585 confirmed cases, 6,418 confirmed deaths, and 832,981 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one other country-  Singapore, 107th country on the list: 65,210 cases of the virus, 33 confirmed deaths and 61,660 confirmed recoveries.[ix]

The price of NEODYMIUM is $602,500.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (-0.00%). [xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.39 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.     In Guatemalan Quetzal, one greenback equals 7.71 and in Guinean Franc, a buck equals 9,757.00 and in Guyana Dollar, one dollar equals 207.28 of theirs.[xiii]        
  67. 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 over $4.221 per gallon, $2.852 in Florida, $3.945 in Hawaii, and $3.603 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.301.  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- Dominica: $3.476 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,379,2427,836,049 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  After Japan, the Chi-Coms, Brazil, and the United Kingdom, Ireland holds about $300 billion of U.S. debt.[xvii]
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  Today is Day #77 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the laughing hyena, to be on the job and we supposedly have a sighting: she is going to discuss border issues with the Guatemalan government in Guatemala[xviii].  Wow.  Next, One America News shared the latest statistics on the ILLEGAL TSUNAMI overwhelming the United States this morning.  First, the cost to U.S. taxpayers this day alone: $539,091,968.  Second, here is the total cost to American taxpayers for the year 2021 in caring for the illegal alien tidal wave: $172,593,922,048.  Imagine what this money could do to help the American people?  We could end the mushrooming tent cities across the country.  Third, here is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the southern border in 2021 alone: 1,768,949.  Finally, here is the estimate by OAN of the total number of illegals in the country as we speak: 35,768,948.  (Note- the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day has long prophesied that the numbers as far back as 2009 when this blog began was between 35-50 million.  In 2021, we believe the numbers are closer to 60-80 million.  All of these people must be scooped up and deported out of the country with microchips embedded in their bodies so we can track them from here on out).  Elsewhere, the Bidenistas now are saying that people being granted U.S. citizenship will NO longer have to pass an FBI background check.  Say what? 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Voters are going to the polls in Peru today.  For president, they have TWO populist candidates from which to choose: (1) Keiko Fujimori, the daughter of a former Peruvian president and businessman Pedro Castillo.   Meanwhile, in Japan, popularity polls for aged Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga are at 37-percent.  And he just met Joe Biden!  Whoa.  Speaking of Japan, Japanese citizens are evenly split as to whether the 2020, uh, 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo will proceed or undergo cancelation out of health fears.   Next, Israeli officials prohibit a ‘far-right group’ (what are they, Nazis?) of Jews from conducting a march through Jerusalem’s Old City.   Elsewhere, President Volodymyr Zelensky blasts Joe Biden for his ineptitude of lifting U.S. sanctions on Russia’s Nord Stream 2 Pipeline carrying natural gas from the former Soviet Union to former Nazi Germany.   Finally, while the Biden regime bumbles about, jihadist Iran is close to a break-out in months- if not weeks- of achieving nuclear weapons. 
  70. 2021 Monday H: (New Category) War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– Boko Haram’s leader, the thug Abubakar Shekau severely wounded himself when his thugs clashed with rival, ISIS-affiliated scumbags.  He tried to detonate a suicide vest so his enemies would not capture him.  However, he did not do a decent job so he could not go down to hell to commune with Shaitan and achieve his 72 virgins (and yes, young boys, too).  We guess his people were able to drag his mauled body away to safety.[xix]   Elsewhere, U.S. senators call for better regulation on cryptocurrencies as they are the number one way in which criminals and terrorists move money around and get paid for services.   Finally, the founder of the terrorist group, Hezbollah- Iran’s 74-year-old Ali-Akbar Mohtashamipour- died from a Chi-Vi infection.  Good riddance.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Covid-19 Updates and Additional Information–  After chaos ensued in the Big Apple over the weekend with the return of Chi-Vi curfews, lockdowns, and restrictions from Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, NYPD arrests at least 23 people.  NO bail for them.  Next- and as expected- following one California’s county making changes to HOW it collects COVID-19 fatalities data, Chi-Vi deaths in Alameda County collapsed by 25-percent.  Alameda County- home of Oakland, California- now is only compiling COVID-19 deaths only if the virus actually killed them, not that the victim merely died with traces of the Bat Flu in their system.  We believe that deaths formerly blamed on the Xi Jinping Virus were driven higher due to politics and financial grants and not because they truly are as high as claimed.  Politics, baby, it’s all about POLITICS.   Meanwhile, Stanford University epidemiologist and professor Dr. Jay Bhattacharya says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s credibility is completely shot.  Finally, a new report broadcast on Newsmax says that ‘rare genetic sequencing in COVID-19 suggest a Wuhan lab leak’ because it would appear the virus was modified in the lab and not in nature.[xx]  
  72. 2021 Monday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– A day after filing a lawsuit against the seemingly corrupt and fraudulent Dominion Voting Systems, the lawyer who filed it on behalf of mega-businessman Mike Lindell has resigned from the firm.   Meanwhile, former NYPD Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik says that ‘probes into voter and election fraud don’t happen overnight.’ 
  73. 2021 Monday K: Social Media News and Big Tech News– A French government watchdog is going after Google by accusing them of abusing their market power in online advertising.  (Note- we could say much about Google, one of the most corrupt, crooked companies on the face of the planet but we won’t).   In other news, following Nigeria closing down Twitter over its ban of a recent tweet by that nation’s President Muhammadu Buhari, Jack Dorsey’s eunuchs began wailing that ‘Twitter is a human right.’  No, Twitter is FECAL MATTER, President Donald J. Trump should have shut them and their equally pathetic pansy buddies at Facebook DOWN.   
  74. 2021 Monday L: U.S. Supreme Court News– The United States Supreme Court ruled 9-0 that NO citizenship should be available to those given TEMPORARY PROTECTED STATUS.  They say that people given something ‘temporary’ should not then be granted something ‘permanent.’  Once whatever crisis ends from whence, they came, they must return home.  Period.   Next, the high court rejected a lower court case in which the ruling said that ONLY males could register for the Selective Service aka the Draft.  The court said it’s up to Congress to determine who can and who cannot be drafted. 
  75. 2021 Monday M: Moron News– Shame and humiliation continue to grow for Sandy “The Fly” Cortez (AOC) as people continue taking shots at her over telling her pobrecita abuelita NOT to take the $100,000 conservative commentator Matt Walsh raised in TEN HOURS to help “The Fly’s” granny.  Since poor abuelita has been told NOT to take the cash for house renovations by her granddaughter, GoFundMe will refund the money- nearly $104,000- to the hundreds of thousands of kind, caring donors.  In other Moron News, CNN’s Brian “The Schmeckel” Stelter is taking incoming fire over his ass-kissing, boot-licking interview with White House chief propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki over the weekend.  Stelter- who lost his testicles seemingly at birth- is nothing but a ground-kissing, brown-nosing POS.  We cannot imagine what he must do for Jeff Zucker to maintain his job…; next, California is forging ahead with giving SLAVE REPARATIONS to former slaves…seeing as how California NEVER had slavery, it seems rather stupid.  Still, a desperate governor will do anything to cling to office (but note- black people who signed the recall petition won’t get a dime and even worse, whatever they receive will be 100-percent taxable.  YOU heard it here, first).[xxi]  In other Moron News, ‘environmentalist’ (and angriest teenager alive) Greta Thunberg ‘is back’ with a new video.  So f**king what?
  76. 2021 Monday N: Health And Medical Alerts– there may be hope for drooling Joe Biden, “Mumbles” Pelosi, and vacant-eyed Senator Dianne Feinstein: the Food and Drug Administration- the FDA- has approved a new Alzheimer’s disease drug, the first in nearly two decades.  Biogen’s new drug- aducanumab will be marketed under the brand-name Aduhelm®.  While it might be way too late for nonagenarians such as “Mumbles’ and centenarians like ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ and Di-Fi, there may be hope for numerous others.  Thank you, Biogen.
  77. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden and his boss, Barack Hussein Obama are out there doing a quick-step as to HOW WONDERFUL Obamacare is even as Red States are severing ties with the socialized system of healthcare.  (Note- the two should take their act on the road).  Speaking of the regime, chief White House propagandist Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says press briefings will soon return to 100-percent capacity.  Elsewhere, after the GOP rejected Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan, the GOP rejected his counteroffer which led to drooling Joe to reject the next offer from the GOP.  (Note- news reports suggest that Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is having a hell of a time trying to push the regime’s agenda as things surrounding the usurper president continue to implode).  In other Biden regime news, a new poll says that with JoJo Biden in the White House, the regime is not enjoying an early bounce in Germany and France what with the (fraudulent) change in White House occupancy.  (Note- everyone KNOWS the truth- that’s why).  Finally, the regime claims to have recovered millions in ransom monies paid to the hackers who shuttered the Colonial Pipeline.  Good.
  78. 2021 Monday P: Political News I– As the U.S. birthrate continues to decline, questions arise as to whether the federal government should encourage its citizens to get married and to produce new generations of kids in much the same way Hungary and other nations have.  (Note- it seems like our country frowns on marriage, promotes legions of bastard children, and non-reproductive styles of living like homosexuality and transgenderism.  Maybe things would be better if the Russians and Chi-Coms took over?).   In other news, Megabank J.P. Morgan-Chase has announced it’s going to refuse donations to ALL Republicans who question the legitimacy of the illegitimate 2020 Elections.  (Note- that’s a bank brown-nosing the Dems for you).  Elsewhere, former Governor “Crooked Ed” Rendell, DS-PA, says of the ‘infrastructure plan’ that some ‘nontraditional infrastructure’ (like what, Ed?) should be left within it its thousands of pages. 
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Political News II– Kimberly Klacik, former congressional candidate and founder of the Red Renaissance PAC says the ongoing killings among black Americans with guns is  a left-wing cultural genocide.   Today, we learned that yesterday on Fox News Channel, the ignoramus Chris Wallace was trying to light into Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, over his defense of the filibuster and his refusal to join fellow Democrats in pushing the “For the People Act,” aka H.R. 1/S 1, the total theft of America’s elections system.  Wallace called the steadfast senator ‘naïve.’[xxii]  Elsewhere, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed two bills into law today, both of which deal with foreign threats and intrusions into the state.  The first law prohibiting foreign influence in the Sunshine State, singling out nations like Russia, communist China, Iran, Venezuela, Syria, Cuba, and other s—hole countries.  The second one singles out the Chi-Coms in particular forbidding them to establish Confucius Institutes and funding universities and newspapers with wagonloads of Chi-Com cash.  Good for you, Governor.
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News III– President Donald J. Trump said (1) that Mark Zuckerberg broke the law with drop-boxes on Election Day.  He also said that cryptocurrencies are a SCAM, something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  When asked if he would run with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis in 2024 as his running mate, he said, ‘sure, it’s possible.’  Unclear as to whether he would run with Vice President Mike Pence again- we rather doubt it.  Elsewhere, Javier Villalobos becomes the first GOP governor-elect in the history of McAllen, Texas.  In a city 85-percent Hispanic and mostly Democrat, the people want someone willing to STOP the flood of illegal aliens.  
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News IV– Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, along with Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that the popularity of the ‘America First’ rallies proves that power in the United States does NOT reside in Washington, D.C., but around the country among the American people.  Elsewhere, Boston Police Commissioner Dennis White is fired over claims of domestic violence at home.  Ouch.  Later in the day, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that ‘Dr. Fauci must go.’  Meanwhile, news arises that former Nevada Attorney General Adam Laxalt, Republican, will challenge sitting Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, DS-NV, in the 2022 Elections.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates– we have three new nominees for the Fourth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Awards this year, the first being whacked-out psychiatrist Dr. Aruna Khilanani- who recently gave a speech on April 6, 2021, to students at Yale University School of Medicine in which, she talked about wanting to kill and bury white people.  Wow.  Next, Calvin Pearson and his dimwitted sidekick, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Jones, creators of the 1619 Project made the list, too, as both of them deserve the ‘Lavrentiy Beria treatment’ of ‘lead to the back of the head down in the bowels of the Lubyanka Prison in central Moscow- symbolically, of course (racist bigot- what were you thinking?).  The third and final person deserving of the treatment is Robin Di Angelo, the promoter of WHITE FRAGILITY who earns millions of dollars promoting this foul rot.  Congratulations.  You join our growing list.
  83. 2021 Monday U: Miscellaneous News I– A day or so before Kelly Stewart was to become the newest betting analyst at ESPN, she was fired over previously acknowledged tweets from nearly a decade ago, tweets she deleted, in which she called people attacking her ‘fags’ and other derogatory names.  Folks, at what flipping point does one’s past disappear?  At some point, it simply must, especially if the person acknowledges his or her fault and apologizes.  Enough is flipping enough already.  Elsewhere, Bill Gates and Warren Buffet are going to build a nuclear reactor in Wyoming while Jeff Bezos is planning to embark on a suborbital flight into space within the next couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines makes Chi-Vi vaccine passports optional for its guests.
  84. 2021 Monday V: Nasa, Space, and UFO News– speaking of space, NASA administrator Bill Nelson, D-FL, says that ‘NASA scientists are investigating the U.S. Navy’s films of UFO incidents.’  Good.  This is a national security issue.
  85. 2021 Monday W: National Security News– Red State reports exclusively that the ‘highest-ranking defector to come out of communist China has been working with and being protected by the Defense Intelligence Agency. This defector- God forbid ‘Chi-Com Joe’ Biden gets ahold of his or her identity as unlike what the libs claimed President Donald J. Trump would do with the Russians, Joe Biden most certainly will for his Chi-Com masters that person will be in grave danger- has informed the DIA of all manner of clandestine weapons programs.  Not only this but the defector has also pointed to Chi-Com spies in the FBI, the CIA, and in several other sensitive government agencies.  This is NOT good.  Ferret out this scum and put them in prison.  Apparently, when FBI Director Chris Wray heard of this, he was ‘blindsided.’  This article must be read to be believed. [xxiii]
  86. 2021 Monday X: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Former Alabama segregationist and Governor James Patterson, Democrat, dies at age 99.  We suspect that Joe Biden knew Governor Patterson and knew him well seeing as how the old coot knew all the segregationists.
  87. 2021 Monday Y: The Wrap-Up– In Pakistan, two express trains slammed into one another killing at least 51 people in the human-caused disaster.  Looks like Casey Jones driving the train was high on cocaine…(so sang the Grateful Dead[xxiv]).  In other news, the Biden regime is defending the indefensible upcoming meeting with Russia’s Vladimir Putin who is going to rip the feeble old Joe a new one on June 16, 2021, in Switzerland.  Speaking of drooling old Joe, people are asking WTF over his lack of any word on the 77th anniversary of the D-Day landings while he continues to flounder about the White House before returning home to Delaware or to Camp David on the weekends.  (We suspect his keepers dope him up with all manner of drugs to try to keep him in some sort of coherent state.  Wow).[xxv]
  88. 2021 Monday Z: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– tomorrow night’s Mega-Millions Draw #1666 as of today is worth $56 million.  We will share the results of the draw tomorrow night.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Brand new week and Vladdie is here.  Let’s see what happens today…

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

[v] 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, such as Bob Welch.  We thank you.

[xviii] Speaking of which, the Washington Post, aka WAPO, reports protesters met “Kooky Kamala” in Guatemala and held signs saying, “TRUMP WON!” and “GO HOME.”  Wow.  Even people in countries the Dems think are on THEIR side know the truth.  My, my, my.  God bless you, Guatemala, there is a way in which we do things legally.  Let’s do it.  Speaking of WAPO, their CEO is lambasting the Biden regime over its WAR on the FREE PRESS.  Say it ain’t so!

[xix] This POS tried to whack himself so as not to humiliate himself by having his enemies capture him alive.  However, it is much more humiliating to attempt to take one’s life and to fail in the act, especially when that same person is a big cheerleader for others to commit suicide bombings.  Loser. 

[xx] Rep. Michael Burgess, R-TX 26th congressional district told Newsmax that Dr. ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci must testify before Congress again.  The POS of won’t do it, Congressman,

[xxv] Hopefully, when Putin meets Susan Rice, uh, we mean Joe Biden, Putin won’t give slobbering Joe the ‘Engelbert Dollfuss treatment.’  

112. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2022

2021 Thursday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- a new report hit the news cycle today suggesting that Health and Human Services, an agency headed by Secretary Xavier Becerra, a man who never met an illegal alien he did not want to protect or a baby to abort, is paying travel expenses for (NAMBLA) and other groups to come pick up illegal alien brats and then take them elsewhere in the country. Shady foster care services are making BIG BUCKS right now caring for illegal alien minors.

  86. 2021 Thursday G: Earth Day Climate Communism News– Conservative commentators with the balls to call out Joe Biden point out that his so-called ‘climate summit’ is little more than a gift to the Chi-Coms who will agree to anything and then forge ahead with their plans.  Who can blame them?  Since it’s ‘Earth Day,’ Joe Biden rolls out sweeping new climate goals that are little more than open doorways for communism to consume both the country and the world.  Thanks, Joe.   Speaking of our drooling commander-in-chief, Climate Change protesters pushed pink wheelbarrows full of steer manure through the streets of Washington, D.C. and dumped them out in front of the White House.  They claim Old Joe is full of s**t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, it’s another Earth Day so it’s another opportunity for angry teenager Greta Thunberg to lambaste the world’s politicians once again.  Young lady, why don’t you row your boat to Beijing and tell comrade Xi Jinping how HE is responsible for f**king up the world?  You might find yourself vacationing in Xinjiang Province.

  89. 2021 Thursday J: Crime And Punishment News– Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a pair of bills into law today that protect motorists from ‘protesters.’  Not long after he did that, there was an INSURRECTION in the State House in which, a bunch of BLM supporters stormed the building and had to be tossed out on their butts by security.  Excellent.   Next, the POS Islamist from Syria[xviii], let in on the refugee program under President Barack Hussein Obama who shot up the King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, is being charged with having a high-capacity magazine.  Say it ain’t so!  Next, Columbus, Ohio, following the death of a 16-year-old Ma’ Khia Bryant was shot dead by a police officer yesterday as she was in the act of stabbing another young girl, protests and riots are occurring in the city, especially after troglodyte LeBron “Fecal Matter” James poured gasoline all over the fire yesterday with a threatening tweet against the officer involved in the action.  Look, when you are threatening someone with an 8-eight-inch blade and you are overheard saying, “I’M GOING TO STAB THE F**K OUT OF YOU, BITCH,” was the officer supposed to stand aside and watch the deed done?  Enough with this bulls**t.  Moving on, Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel program that SEXUAL ASSAULTS in New York City this past couple of months are UP by…get this…322-percent.  Gee whiz.  WTF is Mayor Bill “The Blank” Di Blasio doing to halt this horrendous sexual crime wave?  Nothing.  Finally, the POS Bangladeshi that tried to carry out a suicide bombing in the Times Square subway station received a life term in federal prison today.   
  90. 2021 Thursday K: Supreme Court News– On a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects limits imposed on life sentences for juveniles.  This led to Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor slamming her fellow justices- but Brett Kavanaugh in particular- noting that the newer justices are willing to overturn precedent extremely easy.   Speaking of liberals, Democrats are demanding (don’t they always) that Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from a donor privacy case.  C’mon, Dems NEVER recuse themselves from anything.   Speaking of the nation’s high court, GOP senators are speaking out against the Democratic Party’s twisted scheme of packing the court.[xix]

  92. 2021 Thursday M: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Late last night, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you know of whom we speak) carried out a suicide car-bombing outside a luxury hotel in Quetta, Pakistan.  The resulting explosion killed four and wounded at least 11.  Supposedly, the Chi-Com ambassador was on site, so no one knows for sure whether he was the target, or it was just another day at the office for the jihadists.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is putting forth a bill designed to crack down on People’s Republic of China infiltrating our institutions of higher learning.  Good.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, slams the enfeebled Joe Biden over his crackpot plans for rejoining with the Iranians in the deeply flawed JCPOA.   Moving on, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggests the U.S. could give eventual U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens willing to plant trees.  How about they plant them in YOUR country?).
  93. 2021 Thursday N: Foreign News / Overseas News II– A new report suggests that the Russians are suspected of launching directed energy attacks on U.S. military personnel.  Okay, uh, when claims of Vladimir Putin placing bounties atop the heads of U.S. soldiers led to demands that President Donald J. Trump go to war with the Russkies, how come the very same voices aren’t demanding that Joe Biden go to war?  Speaking of the Russians, it appears they have blinked and have pulled their forces back from the eastern border of Ukraine.  Wow.  Joe scared them.  In other ‘foreign news,’ a team of scientists are urging Congress to release more information on UFOs after one incident comes to light in which, a UFO going along at 120 miles per hour over Puerto Rico suddenly splits in two and heads off in different directions.  Folks, we have a problem on this planet.  What are we going to do about it?  (Note- this incident occurred back in 2013 so why are we just hearing about it now?)  Finally, at the upcoming meeting of House Republicans, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that President Donald J. Trump WON’T be addressing the group.

  99. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.110 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.685 in Washington state.[xxvii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Maryland- $4.047.  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 24th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Russia: $2.421 per U.S. Gallon.[xxviii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,402,029,192,644 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Arab Emirates the next largest holder of U.S. debt is ALL OTHERS.  These nations holds $215,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  100. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Moscow now says that they are going to conquer all of eastern Ukraine as well as southern Ukraine so they can then focus on intimidating Moldova into submission.   Meanwhile, a new report informs the world that Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites fought off a Russian jamming attack over Ukraine the other day.   Satellite images are showing mass graves surrounding Mariupol in eastern Ukraine holding as many as 9,000 or more corpses.  Whether they are Ukrainian civilians or slain Russians is unclear; however, the defenders within the city continue to put up a defense which is driving the Russians and their mercenaries insane.
  101. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The families of the lost sailors who went down with the Moskva when it was sunk by Ukrainian forces last week are demanding answers from Vladimir Putin and his military regime.  They want to know WHY their sons and daughters went down with the ship in an unnecessary war.   Things are growing much more tense in Russia as the FSB is scooping up critics of the Russo-Ukrainian War such as opposition activist, Vladimir Kara-Murza Jr.  A criminal case has been opened against him and he could soon be staying with Alexei Navalny in the Siberian slammer.   Speculation abounds about Russian President Vladimir Putin as a recent series of photos shows him speaking with his defense minister. His right foot is tapping feverishly, he grips the table with one hand, his face, hands, and neck are bloated, and he looks worse than Adolf Hitler did in 1945.  Regarding Hitler, his personal doctor, Dr. Theodor Morell was injecting the Fuhrer with 75 different drugs per day including methamphetamine so what is Putin’s excuse?  The Joe Biden ‘disease,’ i.e., advance senility?
  102. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 385 days and it’s been 299 days since she arrived on scene to do her job.  What a tragedy.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is $713,581,700.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the two took their oaths to defend the Constitution of the United States and the American people is $42,459,387,443.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since the year began is a shocking 1,139,758.  Next, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is a shockingly low 46,571,415.  We suspect the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is a travesty no sane country can withstand. Next, a Texas National Guard member was swept away attempting to rescue struggling illegals drowning in the Rio Grande River.  The search continues for the unfortunate guardsman.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  103. 2022 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Bowing to pressure, Pope Francis calls off a meeting he had scheduled with a Russian patriarch due to the Russian being an ardent supporter of President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, another Russian, Olympic swimmer Evgeny Rylov has been given a nine-month suspension in international swimming events because the POS attended a pro-Vladimir Putin rally.  Next, Austria turns off the Russian oil spigot.  Meanwhile, the European Union is begging its citizens to voluntarily reduce energy usage so as to slash the dependence on Russian oil.
  104. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News II– British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is no slacker, and he says that ‘next week, the Brits will be reopening their embassy in Kyiv.’  Wow.  Where the hell is Joe Biden?  (Note- Joe is worried more about trannys and their rights than he is in promoting and defending the United States).   Elsewhere, after back-to-attack attacks on U.S. troops, diplomats from Iraq and Iran to meet. However, President Volodymyr Zelensky says the ‘U.S. most definitely will be reopening their embassy very soon.’  Next, after the Ukrainian postal service debuts a new anti-Russian postage stamp online, a cyberattack shuts them down.

  110. 2022 Friday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Gallup poll says that Joe Biden’s popularity rating is the second lowest in presidential history.  While we suggest that Barack Hussein Obama’s was worst, we know that President Richard M. Nixon rates the lowest.  In other devastating news to the so-called ‘Catholic president,’ Catholic League President William Anthony Donahue is slamming President Biden over his embrace of ‘transgender mania.’  Yikes, Joe.  How much worse can it get for you?
  111. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– Despite a growing rebellion among Democrats and red state governors going for broke to end the border invasion, the Biden regime says that it’s still going to end Title 42 on May 23, 2022,  whether they like it or they don’t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, struggling Joe Biden arrived on the West Coast today to do some fundraising and not to discuss defending our borders.  In Portland, Oregon, Joe Biden gave a rambling, stumbling speech to a tiny crowd and in his remarks, said that ‘Americans should stop feeling sorry for themselves’ regarding inflation and unaffordable prices.  Then in Seattle, he talked about climate change before ambling off into the hands of his handlers.  Where was the Easter bunny?  To cap things off, Joe grasped the lectern, leaned forward to the almost nonexistent crowd, begin whispering, then mumbling, and finally stuttering and stammering about how the GOP has become the MAGA party.  (Note- look for Joe to outlaw the Republican Party ahead of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections).
  112. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– In Washington, D.C., today, another busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in the nation’s capital.  Dump ‘em on the White House lawn.  They should not need ID there anymore than they need ID along the U.S.-Mexico border.   Next, after the BIG SCARE at the U.S. Capitol yesterday, the FAA says it failed to inform the Capitol Hill Police Department of the parachute jump into Washington Nationals Stadium.  As you recall, a parachutist caused mass panic at the Capitol.  Was it the return of the INSURRECTIONISTS?  Oh, God, say it ain’t so.
  113. 2022 Friday S: Political News I– Democrats do what Democrats do best: use the system to topple their foes.  Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, appeared in administrative court in Atlanta, Georgia, today where her Democrat opponents are trying to remove her from the primary ballot because (1) they hate her and (2) they know they can’t beat her.  He enemies are attempting to tie her to the false flag operation authorized by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Charged with no crime, the Dems still seek to remove her from the ballot.  Her attorney informed the hearing that all she did was to exercise her First Amendment rights.  The congresswoman says that all she was doing was asking people to come and to attend a peaceful march.
  114. 2022 Friday T: Political News II– Randi Weingarten- well-known socialist head of the American Federation of Teachers says that ‘parental rights laws in education are the way in which wars are started.’  Wow.  We suspect Ms. Weingarten may be going the way of Jimmy Hoffa soon.  Know when you’ve reached the apex of your career and then bow out gracefully; otherwise, you could end up in a landfill in the Garden State.
  115. 2022 Friday U: Political News III– In dire news for U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd district, Rep. “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney released audio from around January 06, 2022, in which, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ prompted Leader McCarthy to say that he was going to suggest to President Donald J. Trump that ‘IF impeached again, he should resign.’  This first came up yesterday and Rep. McCarthy denied ever saying it; however, today, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ Cheney got even with the California congressman by releasing the audio damning him as the anti-Trump RINO POS that he is.  Republicans in the Golden State’s 23rd district tell us they will be voting for Republican Jay Obernolte in June’s primary.  Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax that ‘McCarthy will probably have to go,’ that ‘Trump will most likely push him out,’ and that the ‘only way McCarthy could survive is that he looks better in comparison than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, RINO-KY.[xxx]
  116. 2022 Friday V: Political News IV– Former President Barack Hussein Obama once again has to add his two bits to the conversation.  He says that Meta-Facebook and Twitter are private companies and don’t have to practice freedom of speech.  Wow.  Next, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, shedding tears while speaking about the trauma she claims to have suffered on January 06, 2021- remember, she was in another building several blocks away from the Capitol- says, ‘this is no joke- they’re coming back.’  Well, this time we hope the ‘insurrectionists find YOU.’ Moving on, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st district, says that Twitter ‘must release data on Hunter Biden’s activities and his laptop.’
  117. 2022 Friday W: Political News V– Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st district, says, ‘it’s not right for the Dems trying to force fellow GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, off the primary ballot.  In other news, former ambassador to Germany and to the United Nations Ric Grenell says that ‘the Dems, Joe Biden, and ‘Merkelism’ in Germany’ set the war in Ukraine in motion.
  118. 2022 Friday X: Political News VI– Greg Kelly on Newsmax played an audio clip of former Governor John Kasich, RINO-OH, and former ‘2016 presidential primary candidate’ said on his radio show, Kasich and Klepper, that following losing the nomination to businessman Donald J. Trump, he broke down and started blubbering like the crybaby he is.
  119. 2022 Friday Y: Lawsuit and Legal News– The punk who started an altercation with heavyweight boxing champion “Iron Mike” Tyson on an airliner the other day has lawyered up while “Iron Mike’s” legal representatives say the putz was bothering him throughout the flight and then finally threw a water bottle at the famous fighter.  This led Mr. Tyson to turn around and punch the dimwit into early senility.  It’s a cut-and-dry case for Mr. Tyson.  Lock the punk up for instigating a fight he was never going to win.   Meanwhile, Tennessee has passed a new law that will force drunk drivers- guilty of killing a parent while driving while intoxicated- to pay support to the kids of the parents they kill.  This is absolutely amazing.  Good for you!
  120. 2022 Friday Z: Big Tech News– Netflix, reeling from a precipitous drop in stock value through the loss of hundreds of thousands of subscribers said today they will curtail spending in an effort to woo young people back to their crumbling site.  We suspect they will go the way of the ‘video store,’ relegated to the dustbin of history.  Meanwhile, Florida passed the law stripping Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges which led to a precipitous fall in their stock prices.  All Disney has to do is to just shut the hell up.  Be neutral and tell your employees to be neutral, too, while on the job.  Outside of work, if you want to prance around in pink tutus defending ‘transgender rights,’ go for it but stop with supporting the indoctrination of kids ages kindergarten to Third Grade.  Enough is flipping enough, already.  Now, your employer owes billions of dollars in taxes which means some of you are going to get the ax.
  121. 2022 Friday AA: Big Tech News II– New data shows that BIG TECH censored stories critical of Joe Biden 600-plus times over a two-year-cycle.  Why would anyone be surprised?  We know they did everything imaginable to cover up the truth of Hunter Biden’s laptop story which would have swayed the election for sure.  (We still believe that President Donald J. Trump won the 2020 Presidential Election by amazing numbers).
  122. 2022 Friday BB: New York State News– Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner resigned today following video of the arrest of an eight-year-old shoplifter.  Passersby attempted to interfere with the police officers and once again the media is in a stage of outrage screaming and yelling racism.  If a family member would discipline the brat at home, he would not be out shoplifting but no, they permit the kid to run amok and then when he’s caught, the media and their left-wing allies turn it into yet another reason for social unrest across the nation.  Put the kid in with the Cho-Mos.  He won’t shoplift again.
  123. 2022 Friday CC: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1757 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line: 07, 28, 29, 58, 59, and Mega 10.  Out of 51,626 winning tickets, the highest winners were 27 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $513 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next archival release Rick Danko’s record company put out is “Live at the Iron Hose, Northampton 1995 with Blondie Chapin and Ed Kaercher.”  This album came out on June 07, 2011, as have his other releases but unlike his ‘solo’ efforts, he has the phenomenal Blondie Chapin (guitars/vocals of Beach Boys fame among others) and Ed Kaercher (guitars, vocals) with which to give it a more electrified sound.  There are 20 tunes, many of which have been culled from the Band’s catalog and which are a joy to hear.  Sadly, they should have been able to have slipped in “Sail On Sailor,” one of the all-time great 1970s Beach Boys albums performed by Blondie Chapin.  We hope you will seek this one out as Danko- troubled star that he was- could deliver the musical goods with the emotional voice denoting fragility, yet strength at the same time.  Great music on a great album by one of the all-time greats- check it out now.  Enjoy.

110. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2022

When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately. Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico. The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals. What a day that will be.

Bush.  Of course, the Saudis denied this blatant attempt to sully their good nature.

  61. 2007 Friday: The state of Virginia begins the observance of a day of mourning for the victims of the Virginia Tech Massacre.  Of course, people want to take guns away from law-abiding people but never from the criminals and the nuts who utilize them to commit evil acts.

  70. 2017 Thursday: In Paris, a police van transporting criminals along the Champs Elysees suffers an attack by jihadists killing police officer and injuring two others.   Elsewhere, Australia beefs up its qualifications for one to become a citizen in their country by amending laws to demand stricter knowledge of the English language as well as a desire to become Australian and not remain some foreign-born piece of pond scum.  Wouldn’t it be great if the United States would do this?
  71. 2018 Friday: A federal court in Mexico declares sale of the controversial Barbie doll depicting artist, Frida Kahlo, cannot occur.  Not sure as to what the reasoning behind this is but folks, it is what it is.    Meanwhile, in the race for 2020, Senators Ron Johnson, R-WI, and “Little Bob” Corker, RINO-TN, opt NOT to endorse President Trump in the race for a second term.  Question is, “WHY?”  However, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that he will endorse President Trump for a second term.
  72. 2019 Saturday: Even though the Trump administration is going after ISIS, they still manage to cause damage and in Syria, over the past couple of days they have managed to kill at least 50 Syrian army soldiers and wound numerous others.  Doesn’t say much about the training given them by Russia or Iran.  Meanwhile, much to the dismay of the far-left liberals, the Mueller Report says, “NO Trump-Russia collusion but the possibility of obstruction still exists.’  Elsewhere, Central American illegal aliens trying to get into the United States are saying the Mexicans are abusing them as they hover around the southern border of their country and the United States.’
  73. 2020 Monday: The world continues suffering under the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis that is spreading around the world.  Today, we have 2,458,150 confirmed cases of the disease what with 168,906 confirmed deaths and 643,918 confirmed recoveries.   The Chinese claim 88,423 confirmed cases with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, the United States sees 789,439 confirmed cases what with 42,186 confirmed deaths, and 71,675 confirmed recoveries as of mid-day.  It is interesting to note that China’s figures change little from day to day which suggests they are either lying to the rest of the world or possess the cure which says a lot about communist governments.
  74. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 141,813,257 confirmed cases, +399,077, 3,027,182  confirmed deaths, +7,522, and 81,116,141 confirmed recoveries, +327,427.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,976,092 confirmed cases, UP 108,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 573,551 confirmed deaths, UP 924, and 119,041,372 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii] 
  75. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 248,829 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Meanwhile, a new study suggests that the ‘VID can affect the lungs via the gums.  Elsewhere, the European Union announces it will restart receiving shipments of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine despite reports of RARE BLOOD CLOTS afflicting some recipients of the vaccine.
  76. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,720,794 confirmed cases, 61,006 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,178,783 confirmed cases, 34,533 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,779 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 388,842 confirmed cases, 5,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kansas, the home of the conservative Midwest: they have 308,518 confirmed cases, 5,005 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  77. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,309 confirmed cases, 6,342 confirmed deaths, and 828,761 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Kuwait, the supposed missing province of Iraq: 258,497 cases of the virus, 1,456 confirmed deaths and 241,696 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    
  78. 2021 Tuesday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,821.30, DOWN 256.33 points (-0.75%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,786.27, DOWN 128.50 points (-0.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,134.94, DOWN 28.32 points (-0.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.42 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,779.20 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.88 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,189.50 per troy oz, -6.80 (-0.57%) while the price of COPPER is $4.20 per pound, -0.01 (-0.21%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,761.73 per troy oz, -49.92 (-1.78%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.72%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.98.     In Icelandic Krona, one greenback equals 125.91 and in Indian Rupee, a buck equals 75.38.[xiii]   
  79. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.974 per gallon, $2.818 in Florida, $3.749 in Hawaii, and $3.385 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.611.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,193,749,804,750 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  In other business news, Netflix fails to meet paid subscriber predictions which leads to a subsequent fall in its shares.
  80. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News– Stammering Joe Biden says he ‘hopes the jury in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin reaches the right verdict.’   Next, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob “The Jerk” Frey says, “No matter the verdict, George Floyd died at the hands of the police.”  (Note- the police are under HIS control).   We were wrong: Judge Peter A. Cahill reads the verdicts and Officer Derek Chauvin is convicted on ALL charges.  Officer Chauvin stands to face 40 years in the slammer although esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz believes that Maxine “Prune Face” Waters did enough to cause a mistrial (see below).  In an interesting aside, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, gave a schizophrenic statement thanking ‘George Floyd for dying, for calling out to his mother on camera’ so the Dems could utilize his untimely demise to benefit the ongoing attempt to transform our country into a socialist s**t-hole.
  81. 2021 Tuesday G: Social Media And Big Tech– The United Kingdom is considering launching their own digital currency, the so-called “Britcoin.”  Next, Facebook is developing new audio products, products with which we suspect they will listen in on their users’ conversations.  Elsewhere, Apple is going to permit Parler to be offered in its App Store.  Big flipping deal.  Speaking of Apple, they are going to reveal new products today in a virtual store.
  82. 2021 Tuesday H: RINO News– Not to be outdone by former House Speaker John “Too Much Flipping Tanning Booth” Boehner, former President George W. Bush has to chime in and add his two cents on the modern GOP.  He says the Republican Party is ‘isolationist, protectionist, and nativist,’ lamenting the fact that he failed to get ‘comprehensive immigration reform taken care of when HE was president.’  Sadly, Republicans knew what he and the RINO wing of the GOP meant when they talked about ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ meant amnesty for millions with a pathway to citizenship for all.’  We did not want that then, George, and we don’t want it now and if you want to make sure the Bush Family name remains toxic, continue talking, George.  Voting for another Bush would mean legalizing the illegal and another justice like the loser chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts.   IF Jeb were to run again, yikes, NO MORE BUSHES!
  83. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic-Socialist News– A new poll says that a large majority of the American people are concerned with the fact that Joe Biden appears to be a slobbering idiot much of the time.  We are concerned, too.   Speaking of Joe Biden, a Missouri college student is suing the Biden administration allowing trannys, i.e., chicks with dicks, into female-only college dorms.   Next, Michigan’s GOP announced they had discovered that Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer AND her staff took a secret vacation to Florida while demanding everyone else remain indoors wearing 4-5 masks.   Elsewhere, a new poll demonstrates that white liberals typically have far more mental problems than do everyone else.  We agree with that study.  Meanwhile, as criticism continues rolling in blasting Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, she dismisses it as ‘nothing’ even though she did the same thing that supposedly got President Donald J. Trump impeached a second time.   (Interesting note- “Prune Face” Waters sought a police escort when she landed in Minneapolis to the protest scene so she could stir the pot without having to fear for her safety.  Wow).  Speaking of “Prune Face,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pushing a bill to censure the decrepit old rabble rouser and to remove her from her committee assignments.  Go for it.  (Note- the Democrats blocked this move).
  84. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump says he is considering a run for the White House in 2024.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘Joe Biden turned his back on the people of his state by going after coalminers when 43-percent of the world’s energy is derived from coal.’  This is true, the United States is the ‘Saudi Arabia of coal’ what with the best here such as anthracite and bituminous coal beneath our feet.   Moving on, Senator Marsha Blackburn says that asking for Voter ID is NOT racist.  We agree.  One needs ID for everything else including welfare checks, liquor, and pot purchases, picking up tickets, buying cigarettes, boarding airplanes- unless one is an illegal alien- you name it, you must show ID so WTF?[xvi] 
  85. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Officials in Indiana reveal that laws regarding firearms in their state would have done NOTHING to have stopped the mass shooting at the FedEx facility a week or so ago.  Next, in Arizona, students can now attend school in person and without having to wear face masks.  However, when the state’s mask mandate ends in May, Oregon is considering passing a law that will require faces masks on everyone forever.  That is correct- FOREVER.  Crazy flipping left-wing socialists.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to reinstate the travel ban that protected the nation so well from the Chi-Vi pandemic.   Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, Ohio GOP lawmakers want to rename a state park for the 45th president.   Speaking of befuddled old Joe Biden, he backs a bill to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state.  People, just return the land to Maryland.  Enough!
  86. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News III– The U.S. ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, is coming home for consultations after Joe Biden continues slandering Vladimir Putin.  Speaking of Mr. Putin and Russia, the word from Moscow is ‘IF Joe Biden wants a summit with Mr. Putin, it will depend on U.S. actions.’   Elsewhere, in Florida, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signs a bill that will allow the state to tax $1 billion in online purchases.   Next, North Carolina won’t pass a bill banning youth tranny procedures.  NOT right.  Wait until you’re 18 and then if you wish to destroy your body, it’s ON YOU.   Meanwhile, Willie Nelson is encouraging Joe Biden to make the ‘pot holiday’ an official one.   Finally, like Gary Gilmore in Utah back in 1977, a death row inmate in Nevada, Zane Michael Floyd, wants the option of being executed via firing squad.   Finally, Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti, NOT TO BE OUTDONE BY FELLOW LEFTISTS, is proposing a universal basic income (that ONLY minorities will receive).
  87. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News IV– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that “WOKE” companies will feel a backlash in the aftermath of Major League Baseball withdrawing the All-Star Game and MLB Draft from the Peach State.  Meanwhile, a recent poll says that less than one-third of Americans are aware of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Joe Biden-Russia-Chi-Com connection.
  88. 2021 Tuesday N: Foreign News / Overseas News– Chi-Com President Xi Jinping gives a thinly veiled warning to Joe Biden not to pursue a path of unilateralism.  Meanwhile, General Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, says that ‘pulling out of Afghanistan will make the War on Terror that much more difficult to prosecute.’   Elsewhere, Bill Gates and loads of world leaders will attend the ‘Biden climate summit.’  This should be fun to watch.  Next, Russia’s defense minister says, ‘U.S. actions in the Black Sea are becoming increasingly provocative.’  We would advise Joe Biden not to send U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea as whatever senile old Joe sends would NOT be able to withstand a concerted Russian attack nor might Turkey allow the vessels to pass back through the Dardanelles to the Mediterranean.  It could be a real cluster-f**k.  Finally, Admiral Charles Richard, head of U.S. Strategic Command, issues a dire warning to the administration: the Chi-Coms and the Russians are modernizing their nuclear forces much faster than anything the United States is doing.  Sadly, WOKE issues for the Democrats are much more important than defending the nation.[xvii]
  89. 2021 Tuesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1652 with a $257 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 06, 23, 43, 49, 52, and Mega 05.  Out of 166,921 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,806,354.  The winning ticket was sold at the Richmond New May Wah Supermarket in San Francisco, CA 94118.

  91. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 567,674 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 202,919 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 455 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  92. 2022 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,162,004 confirmed cases, 89,844 confirmed deaths, and 8,931,498 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,935,813 confirmed cases, 73,759 confirmed deaths, and 5,805,626 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 237,950 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,477,863 confirmed cases, 12,626 confirmed deaths, and 1,438,605 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Puerto Rico: they have 499,539 confirmed cases, 4,188 confirmed deaths, and 473,564 confirmed recoveries.[xx]   
  93. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,044,994 confirmed cases, 10,658 confirmed deaths, and 3,941,841 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Montserrat, 218th place on the list: 177 cases of the virus, 2 confirmed death and 174 confirmed recoveries.[xxi]                         
  94. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,160.79, UP 249.59 points (+0.71%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,453.07 DOWN 166.59 points (-1.22%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,459.45, DOWN 2.76 points (-0.062%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $102.56 per barrel, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of GOLD is $1,955.90 per troy oz., +0.30 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.21 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.24%).  The price of PLATINUM is $984.30 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.27%) while the price of COPPER is $4.66 per pound, +0.01 (+0.18%).[xxii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,443.32 per troy oz., -8.61 (-0.35%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,750.00 per troy oz., -150.00 (-0.79%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, +5,000.00 (+0.45%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,270.00 per USD/T, +9.00 (+0.28%). The price of ZINC is $4,418.00 per USD/T., -80.50 (-1.79%).   The price of COCOA is $2,536.00 per USD/T, +11.00 (+0.44%).  The price of COFFEE is $218.80 per USD/T, -2.50 (-1.13%).  The price of CORN is $812.75 per USD/T, -3.25 (-0.40%).  The price of LUMBER is $995.60 USD 1,000 board feet +57.00 (+6.07%).[xxiii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000024.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.00, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 79.78 of theirs.    In Moroccan Dirham, one greenback equals 9.80 and in Mozambican Metical, a buck equals 63.20 and in Myanmar Kyat, one dollar equals 1,850.00 of theirs.[xxiv]       
  95. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.696 per gallon, $4.106 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.682 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Louisiana- $3.869.  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 22nd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.348 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,397,730,855,439 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  96. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– It’s Day No. 56 in the Russo-Ukrainian War with no end in sight.  Germany says that by the end of the year, there will be no more oil coming into their country from Russia nor will there be any natural gas shortly after that.  They must know that President Donald J. Trump is returning soon, and that oil and natural gas will be flowing from the United States once again.
  97. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our glorious Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 383 days.  Worse, she has not shown up to do the job in 297 days.  By our count, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris regime’s illegal aliens since January 01, 2022, is $700,740,760.  Next, since the duo took their oaths to defend the country and its Constitution, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders is $42,446,546,503.  Since the first day of the year, we contend 1,119,308 illegal alien invaders have arrived in the country while the conservative low estimate of illegals believed to be in the country is 46,550,965.  We believe the truer number is between 85-to-125 million illegals which is an intolerable amount.  Good news: the 7th bus of illegals arrived in the nation’s capital today.  Dump ‘em out on the White House lawn.  Put them to work. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  103. 2022 Wednesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new poll of U.S. military veterans says the majority of them believe that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark A. Milley is BAD for morale.  Speaking of someone else BAD for the nation’s morale, Joe Biden sees only 26-percent approval among Hispanic voters.  This is not good for the regime.   Next, Joe Biden- well, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain or perhaps the Easter bunny- is demoting Acting ATF Director Marvin Richardson and bringing in U.S. Attorney Gary Restaino from Arizona to run the ship while his new nominee, former Ohio U.S. Attorney Steve Dettlebach tries to make it through confirmation in the U.S. Senate.
  104. 2022 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News II– In yet another sell-out by the Biden regime, the Bidenistas are canceling nuclear sea-launched cruise missile known as the SLCM-N, and the B83 gravity nuclear bombs designed.  It would appear that the administration is doing what Joe Biden and the Democrats always accused President Donald J. Trump- the legitimate president- of doing, being a stooge for the Russians.  Joe Biden and the Democrats surrounding him are the TRUE stooges of not just the Russians but of the Chi-Coms.   Twenty-fifth Amendment anyone?
  105. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News III– Supposedly, ‘Joe Biden’ held a confab with his top military generals today as events in Ukraine continue going from bad to worse.  Eastern European leaders however are journeying to Kyiv to walk the streets with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.   However, U.S. cybersecurity agencies and foreign allies are warning of massive Russian cyberattacks coming our way.  Oh, perish the thought.
  106. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News IV– The Centers for Disease Control have asked the Biden regime to ask the Department of Justice to appeal the federal judge’s slap-down of mask mandates on air travel.  Dutifully, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that he is going to contest the ruling, spending millions of taxpayer dollars with which to overturn an extremely popular ruling with the American people.  They just keep striking out on one issue after another that could help Democrats win in the fall.
  107. 2022 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th district, says that the Centers for Disease Control NEVER provided reasons for keeping masks on air travel.   Next, a new poll says that President Donald J. Trump holds an insurmountable lead over his closest possible Republican contenders in 2024 and a massive-massive-massive lead over losers such as Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, and U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell who would never run anyway.  His time in GOP politics is coming to an end within his next election cycle.  He’s going the way of Di-Fi.
  108. 2022 Wednesday R: Political News II- The Senate Majority PAC- a Democrat fund-raising monster- is rolling out a massive ad blitz to support crumbling Senator Tammy Baldwin, DS-WI, who is among many at risk of losing their seats in November.  The Democrats are rolling out massive ad campaigns across the fruited plain with which- or so they hope- to maintain some hope of holding a majority.  They stand better chance of dumping illegals in all 50 states and giving them the right to vote with 30-day residency which is why the GOP must go out NOW and begin recruiting the illegals to register GOP.  NOW.
  109. 2022 Wednesday S: U.S. Military News– In Ohio, the first ever Courts Martial of a U.S. Air Force Major General William Cooley is underway as jury selection commences.  The general is accused of forcibly groping and kissing a subordinate.  At least it’s not for refusing to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.
  110. 2022 Wednesday T: Big Tech News– Big Tech strikes again: Google takes down Hong Kong leadership contender John Lee’s YouTube account.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis- fresh from leading his state forward in the battle to force Disney to return to being at least, a neutral company, and at best, the American company that it once was is going after yet another WOKE target: Twitter.  The Sunshine State is threatening Twitter’s board of directors with a lawsuit over its rejection of Elon Musk’s buyout offer.  How can they do this, you ask?  Well, not considering an offer that would enrich ALL shareholders is a rejection of their fiduciary obligation to their shareholders and for this, the worthless company can be sued in court.   It is interesting to note that Governor DeSantis holds Twitter stock.  Not good for Twitter.
  111. 2022 Wednesday U: Big Tech News II– Another Big Tech icon sputtering into the wastebin of history like video shops is Netflix.  Having lost more than 200,000-plus users in recent months, shares of the online ‘video shop’ have fallen 23-percent.  Once Netflix went all WOKE, they, too, lost their allure, paying the Obamas hundreds of millions of dollars for some of the crappiest ‘entertainment’ on the Net.  How sad.  Meanwhile, it appears that CNN+ is doomed to circle the crapper, too.  Don’t these flipping liberals ever learn the hard lessons?  The American people are middle-right and don’t want all this WOKE CRAP.
  112. 2022 Wednesday V: Popular Culture News– Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania, by an 8-1 vote shot down an attempt by some sick f**ks to establish an afterschool Satan club.  These evil clubs operate in four other places around the country, opening a door to things better left alone by enticing young people that it’s all just, good clean fun.  Bullshit.  You know, you can tell when a culture is in its decline.  Here is how: (1) constant political strife bordering or leading to civil war.  (2) open borders and an inability to do what’s necessary to stop barbarians from flowing across it- namely, use of force to stop the invasion.  (3) loss of common culture, language, belief in God (4) embracing all things perverse such as homosexuality, perversion, chicks with dicks, mentally ill believing they are something they are biologically incapable of being (5) the acceptance of dark ‘religious faiths’ such as satanism, abortion on demand, the eradication of the sick, the infirm, the mentally challenged (6) the corruption, i.e., the sexualization of children, minors, and sexual abuse (7) rampant crime, especially violent crime, loss of law and order, abrogation of government’s duty to protect its citizenry from thugs and criminals (8) constant wars for no apparent reason, the worrying of foreign events over domestic events, the worrying about noncitizens over citizens, i.e., the replacement theory, which is indeed FACT, NOT THEORY.  Each of these things is bad enough but combined together and it’s the End of Times.  We have a leader who should be in the old folks’ home, and we are well on our way to the end of the line for the United States.
  113. 2022 Wednesday W: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3657 what with a $35 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 29, 36, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 111,308 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,284 apiece.   One ticket was sold at Bob’s Liquors in Redding, CA 96002 while the other was sold at Neighbors’ Market and Spirits in Galt, CA 95632.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #978 with a jackpot of $370 million up for grabs: 20, 30, 45, 55, 56, and Power 14.  Out of 94,565 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,235 apiece.

2022 Wednesday X: There’s always more…

[i] We look forward to presenting the music of Grand Funk Railroad sometime in the late 2020s.

[ii] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

[iii] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[iv] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] At some point in the distant future, we hope to do the music of the famed rocker, Prince.  Be sure to remain aware for the day that we do.

[xvi] When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately.  Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico.   The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals.  What a day that will be.

[xvii] We have predicted since ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election that it would not surprise any of us if the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the North Koreans, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, the Cubans, and all the Third World countries in the orbit of Beijing were to act in concert against the U.S. and her interests.  What better opportunity would they have?  Unless President Donald Trump reenters the White House, we are sitting ducks.

108. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2022

2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election. The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’ Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See! See! The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’ Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…

  49. 2005 Monday: In the Papal Conclave of 2005, senior cardinals signal no new pope has been chosen by sending up black smoke, the traditional method of signaling no decision.  When white smoke goes up, they have made their choice and will inform the world.  We will await the decision.

  57. 2013 Thursday: Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f, two planets resembling planet Earth are discovered revolving around the star Kepler-62 in the habitable zone, an area around the stars whose atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at the surface.   Elsewhere, President Barack Obama visits the city of Boston.  Meanwhile, as a condition of talking to the Obama administration, North Korea demands that all UN-imposed sanctions on their country be lifted or screw off.
  58. 2014 Friday: About 80 miles northwest of the resort town of Acapulco, Mexico, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hits but the authorities report only minimal damage.  Elsewhere, in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, pro-Russian thugs holding government buildings refuse to surrender them to Ukrainian authorities threatening an international incident.  Kiev needs to send in some worse thugs than the Russian scum holding them and evict them right into a prison cell.  This is what happens when an American president- Bill Clinton- promised the Ukrainians that ‘America would come to their defense if they would only surrender their nuclear weapons.’  This mess occurred shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union.
  59. 2015 Saturday: In Nigeria, 17 people die from a mystery disease within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.  Tests show that the disease is not viral; however, currently, there is no identification.  Elsewhere, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inducts Ringo Starr[vi] (finally!), the Paul Butterfield Blues Band[vii] (finally!), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts[viii] (finally!), Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble[ix] (guy’s been dead quite a while), Green Day[x], Bill Withers[xi], Lou Reed[xii] (finally), and the Five Royals.
  60. 2016 Monday: U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter arrives in Baghdad and informs his counterparts that in an effort to defeat ISIS, the U.S. will be sending more troops to help Iraqi troops repel the murderous thugs.  Elsewhere, in the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea, a migrant boat off the coast of Egypt, overloaded with Somali immigrants bound for Italy capsizes and at least 400 of the travelers drown.
  61. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low-cost foreign workers. 
  62. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  63. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  64. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Saturday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former 72nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul H. O’Neill died at age 84.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, to December 31, 2002.

  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  68. 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: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv] 
  69. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,047 confirmed cases, 6,338 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- the West Bank, long a part of Israel: 279,273 cases of the virus, 2,983 confirmed deaths and 245,293 confirmed recoveries.[xv]  
  70. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 81.80 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.98.[xvi]
  71. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.968 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.745 in Hawaii, and $3.371 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.676.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,186,291,746,801 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]
  72. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS– in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I– Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously, and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021, and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  76. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III– Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin, which is not right, but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  77. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I– Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in an advantageous position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  78. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  79. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.

[i] This is the TRUE government of China, Nationalist China which is FREE China.  Although these people inhabit Taiwan, the former island of Formosa, they are the true owners of mainland China, too, and the sooner they reclaim their birthright, the sooner the world will heal.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.

[iv] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[v] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.

[viii] Not sure when we will begin celebrating the music of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts but when we do…you will be among the first to know.

[ix] As to when we will celebrate the life, times, and music of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, we haven’t a clue so stay alert for the day we finally do.

[x] We doubt we will ever do the music of Green Day.

[xi] We hope to celebrate the music of Bill Withers one day.  Please stay alert for when that day arrives.  You will be glad you did.

[xii] 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.

Thanks for joining us today, we are attempting to become a bit more middle of the road so that entities such as Bing won’t throw our search results into the garbage. This, of course, will require time and diligence on our parts just as it will require patience on the part of our critics. We see the writing upon the wall, Biden administration.

Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Baghdad has become of the most violent places on the entire Earth as riots and looting occur, even in the hospitals and the museums.  The Coalition figured that when Saddam fell, everything would be A-Okay and the grateful people would come together in a spirit of love and harmony, rather like a Woodstock 2003.  Only, things are not turning out this way.  Things are going to hell in a handbasket.  President Bush, Prime Minister Blair: YOU broke it, you own it.  Dimwits.
  55. 2004 Monday: A federal judge allowed a nationwide ban on dietary supplements containing ephedra to take effect, turning aside a plea from two manufacturers.   Elsewhere, as everything continues going south in Iraq, U.S. Army General Ricardo S.

  56. 2005 Tuesday: Wolfgang Droege, perhaps Canada’s most prolific white supremacist- has a problem today.  Cops arrived at his home, found him murdered,  Even better for the cops, the perp was still inside the apartment with a gun in his hand.  Naughty, naughty.   They don’t like handguns in our neighbor to the north.
  57. 2006 Wednesday: Jurors in the Zacarias Moussaoui trial listened to a recording of shouts and cries in the cockpit as desperate passengers twice charged hijackers during the final half-hour of doomed United Flight 93 on September 11, 2001.  Meanwhile, as the Iranians continue working on their nuclear program, the Israelis threaten strikes on their nuke facilities as a ‘last resort’ if world leaders don’t put a stop to the insanity.  (Note- we say, “NUKE IRAN!  NOW!- Moses Scharbug III)
  58. 2007 Thursday: The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee authorizes Senator Patrick “Leaky” Leahy to investigate the firings of federal attorneys that occurred under the Bush #43 administration.  The administration says it’s missing emails.  We shall see.

  64. 2013 Friday: Russia threatens retaliation after the U.S. imposes sanctions on 18 Magnitsky list Russians accused of human rights violations.  Meanwhile, Macy’s loses its dispute with JC Penney; JC Penney wins the right to sell unbranded housewares designed by Martha Stewart in its stores.  Elsewhere, the 50th U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar left office on this date and his replacement- the 51st U.S. Interior Secretary Sally Jewell- assumed the position.  Both Democrats, Secretary Salazar served under President Barack Obama from January 20, 2009, until today while Secretary Jewell served from today until January 20, 2017.
  65. 2014 Saturday: Researchers announce a new orally administered drug that may cure Hepatitis C; medical researchers declared 90-percent of patients in trials free of the virus after 12 weeks.  Elsewhere, gunmen- most likely Taliban thugs- kidnap 100 tribal leaders at a meeting in North Waziristan, Pakistan.

  68. 2017 Wednesday:  President Donald J. Trump says the “U.S. dollar is getting too strong” which is why he seeks to keep interest rates low.  In other news, liberals are going berserk after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the “Nazis never used poison gas.”  This is in response to Syrian chemical weapons attacks on jihadist rebels.  What he meant is that the Nazis did NOT use poison gas on the battlefield.  Yes, they used it in the concentration camps but did not use it on the battlefield as both the Central Powers and the Allies did during World War I.  Sheesh.  Elsewhere, Japan says it will join in U.S.-South Korean military exercises as North Korea is causing lots of problems right now.
  69. 2018 Thursday: Along the border between Israel and Gaza, Palestinians continue running amok which leads Israeli Defense Forces to take out another couple of terrorists which drives liberals the world over to shriek and cry.  Meanwhile, Gazan doctors claim they have to amputate the legs of some young kids the Israelis shot (we don’t believe this crock of crap).
  70. 2019 Friday: Governor Mike DeWine, R-OH, signs a bill that eliminates the possibility of abortion once a fetal heartbeat is heard.  This leads the American Civil Liberties Union to announce they are preparing a challenge to the bill.  Meanwhile, in Quetta, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you can figure out what it is) carry out a suicide bombing on a marketplace that blows 21 people to meet Allah sooner than they planned and left another 50 wishing that maybe they could have gone to meet him, too.
  71. 2020 Easter Sunday: sees 1,847,643 cases of confirmed COVID-19 around the world with 113,911 confirmed deaths and 422,489 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, there are 557,783 confirmed cases with 21,965 confirmed deaths and 31,976 confirmed recoveries at the time of this update.  Sadly, many locales around the U.S. have ordered churches to be closed to ‘prevent the spread of the Wuhan Virus Crisis’ the communists running the People’s Republic of China have given the world.  Question is, when Ramadan- a holiday of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam- begins on April 23 and runs through May 23, will local and state governments order mosques to close, too?  Millions of Americans suspect this will not be the case as the government only seeks to persecute Christians and Jews but NEVER Muslims.
  72. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 136,315,604 confirmed cases, +599,097, 2,940,833  confirmed deaths, +8,641, and 77,593,298 confirmed recoveries, +388,688.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,442,604 confirmed cases, UP 94,373 from yesterday’s reporting, 567,894 confirmed deaths, UP 752, and 119,004,328 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  73. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: SINCE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 240,090 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   Dr. Scott Gottlieb takes the ‘Biden administration’ to task for NOT surging vaccines and resources into coronavirus hotspots but to continue doling vaccines out based on population numbers. 
  74. 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: 3,701,555 confirmed cases, 60,434 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,125,846 confirmed cases, 34,056 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,045 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 378,052 confirmed cases, 5,373 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kentucky, the home of “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and his Chi-Com wife, Elaine Chao: they have 436,434 confirmed cases, 6,350 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii] 
  75. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,072 confirmed cases, 6,299 confirmed deaths, and 826,205 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Greece, birthplace of the AICPENDBLOG.COM’s very own Chef Tiresias: 295,480 cases of the virus, 8,885 confirmed deaths and 93,764 confirmed recoveries.[viii]  In other China Virus news, India has now overtaken Brazil as having the newest cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Not good.   
  76. 2021 Monday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,745.40, DOWN 55.20 points (-0.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,850.00, DOWN 50.19 points (-0.36%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,127.99, DOWN 0.81 points (-0.02%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.63 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.12%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.60 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $24.83 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,174.90 per troy oz, +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of COPPER is $4.02 per pound, 0.00 (+0.02%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,677.52 per troy oz, +38.28 (+1.45%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -100.00 (-0.34%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.13.     In Egyptian Pound, one greenback equals 15.64 and in Emirati Dirham, a buck equals 3.67.[xii]  
  77. 2021 Monday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.936 per gallon, $2.840 in Florida, $3.718 in Hawaii, and $3.337 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.016.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,162,923,067,501 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  78. 2021 Monday F: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS– The state of Arizona is suing the ‘Biden administration’ over its flawed border policies.  They are suing the corrupt regime on environmental grounds as the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens pouring across the southern frontier are leaving heaps of garbage, fecal matter, urine, discarded clothing, condoms, beverage containers, food wrappers, and all sorts of other garbage that is destroying the pristine environment along the Arizona-Mexico border.  Next, President Joe Biden taps two openly hostile critics of President Donald J. Trump to lead key agencies.  First, he picks Tucson, Arizona’s chief of police, Chris Magnus to lead Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) and Ur Jaddou to head U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.  Both of these POS will push open borders policies.  Speaking of open borders, today is Day 19 that Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris has failed to hold a press conference so she can share her ideas for fixing the southern border crisis.   
  79. 2021 Monday G: PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN NEWS II– The first family’s dog, Major, is scheduled to get another round of training for all the people he has bitten since entering the White House.  What more proof does one need that the dog is a prop for a feeble old coot like President Joe Biden?  Next, as the White House continues trying to convince the American people that another $2 trillion bill- this one, the INFRASTRUCTURE FIASCO BILL[xv]– is somehow good for them, Biden’s henchmen are going to target the home states of GOP leaders for a concerted push.  (Note- Joe, we don’t want this POS bill.  What you are going to do is that borrowing money from our enemies- that’s right- I flipping said it- the Chinese- you are going to allow them to become de facto owners of U.S. businesses and landlords of the American people.  Chef Kilgore).   Meanwhile, we learn today that RINO wife of the late Senator John S. McCain- Cindy- could get an ambassadorship to the United Nations Food Program.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!  Big flipping deal.   Finally, President Joe Biden is going to nominate former Pentagon employee Christine Wormuth to become the U.S. Army secretary.  If she gets the gig, she will become the first woman to hold this position.  YOU couldn’t find a tranny for secretary of the Army, Joe?
  80. 2021 Monday H: POLITICAL NEWS I– Fascist Governor Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, is peeved today at her Chief Operating Officer Tricia Foster basically told her boss to ‘go f**k herself’ by taking her family to Florida to vacation during spring break and then possessing the chutzpah to post photos of her vacation to online social media sites.  According to Herr Whitmer, NO one in Michigan government is to disobey her by going to the EVIL, COVID-19-infested Florida.  Oh, well.  We predict Governor Whitmer is going to face a Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu moment when the citizens of her state drag that Frankenstein-headed b***h (the only thing she’s missing are the bolts in her neck) and her family out and liquidate them.   This is the fate of ALL dictators.[xvi]  In other news, former DNI John Ratcliffe says that ‘Hunter Biden’s Ukrainian connections and his laptop are NOT Russian disinformation.’ 
  81. 2021 Monday I: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEA NEWS– the Iranians are running around jabbering and swearing over the recent BLACKOUT that befell their main nuclear facility in Natanz.  Israel, if YOU are going to f**k with these scumbags, how about setting a chain reaction off within the program so the entire country blows the hell up?  Now, that would be something we would all love to see.  Meanwhile, the ‘Biden administration’ is negotiating with Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (Trump already did this) to obtain their help in stopping the tidal wave of illegal aliens flooding from the three Central American countries through Mexico and into the U.S.  We believe we should militarize the southern border and throw back every wave of illegals invading our country.
  82. 2021 Monday J: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS– After a traffic stop goes awry in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, people are criticizing the moron judge in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd because with all the problems that have occurred in the area as well as across the country because he did not sequester the jury in this case.   Next, New York State continues to forge ahead with its incredibly STUPID plan of giving checks as high as $15,600 apiece to illegal aliens who may have been affected by the ‘VID when U.S. citizens have lost homes, businesses, and many of them are living out on the streets.  Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the “Gropin’ Gov” must go now.  In other news, Victor Davis Hanson says that ‘all organizations and institutions have all gone WOKE.’ 
  83. 2021 Monday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– President Donald J. Trump says it is imperative that the GOP reclaims both the House and Senate in 2022.   Elsewhere, following the accidental shooting death of a young black man in Minnesota last night, three counties are placed under curfew and the National Guard is now patrolling the streets.  Police in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota (see previous), said that the female officer who shot 20-year-old Duante Wright thought she was drawing her taser as he sought to flee and instead shot him.   In other curious news, the U.S. is warning the People’s Republic of China NOT to make a move on Taiwan.  We shall see.  Russia in the Ukraine, Iran flexing its muscles, and North Korea going mum, no one knows what the heck is going to happen.  Finally, as the volcano continues erupting on St. Vincent, ferries are taking people away from the island BUT ONLY if they have vaccinations for the Chi-Vi.  We guess loads of people are going to die.  WTF?
  84. 2021 Monday L: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– Taiwan reports that the Chinese flew 25 warplanes into their airspace earlier today.  Unlike the time when Chinese leader Hu Jintao was reaching out to Taiwan’s leadership, it’s clear that Xi Jinping is pulling a full-on Adolf Hitler, trying to intimidate neighboring countries around the borders of the People’s Republic of Chi-Com Land or actively trying to subvert them so as to force them into the fold.   Taiwan’s air defenses locked onto the PRC warplanes while tracker planes flew along with them.  War is coming, folks, war is coming, and we have, uh, President Joe Biden?  WTF!
  85. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 500,813,931 confirmed cases, +1,169,664, 6,209,098 confirmed deaths, +3,580 and 450,867,362 confirmed recoveries, +1,448,464.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 563,722 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 199,057 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 447 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  87. 2022 Tuesday 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: 9,134,145 confirmed cases, 89,534 confirmed deaths, and 8,888,559 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,913,991 confirmed cases, 73,588 confirmed deaths, and 5,796,925 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 241,972 confirmed cases, 1,382 confirmed deaths, and 236,758 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,467,059 confirmed cases, 12,566 confirmed deaths, and 1,431,389 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Delaware: they have 259,419 confirmed cases, 2,884 confirmed deaths, and 253,989 confirmed recoveries.[xix]

  90. 2022 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.748 per gallon, $4.056 in Florida, $5.239 in Hawaii, and $4.669 in Washington state.[xxiv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Delaware- $3.945.  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 14th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Bahrain: $2.008 per U.S. Gallon.[xxv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,380,403,104,848 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvi]  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 Germany the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda.  This nation holds $73,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  91. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- The ongoing war in Ukraine is raising the specter of global famine as Russia is among the biggest producers of fertilizers across the world.  Atop this conundrum, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned the West in general and the U.S. in particular that ‘Russia cannot be isolated nor held back from pursuing its goals.’  Putin’s goals are evil: the mayor of Bucha reported that at least 400 bodies of Ukrainian civilians have been recovered from where Russian forces massacred them.  The Russians claim they massacred no one but the Russkies never change.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken- and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky- say they cannot confirm claims that Russia used chemical weapons on civilians in Mariupol.  However, former Republican presidential candidate Jim Gilmore says that the ‘U.S. may have to provide chemical weapons to Ukraine.’
  92. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 375 days.  She has not arrived on scene to do the job in, uh, 289 days.  Yet, she still receives a paycheck.  Wow.  By our account, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens since the beginning of January 2022 is in our estimate, $649,272,590 while the cost of caring for the illegals since President Joseph R. Biden and Vice President Harris held up their right hands with their left hands on the Bible and took the oath to preserve and to defend the country, we estimate the cost of caring for the illegal alien invasion army at $42,395,348,333.  Imagine what that money could do for the American people?  Since January 01, 2022, we estimate that 1,036,752 illegals have arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border and that the conservative estimate of illegal aliens living in our country as you read this at 46,428,238.  We contend that there are between 85-to-125 million illegal aliens in the country, which is a horrendous number, something that seems to be on purpose to topple the U.S.  Time for patriots of all backgrounds to defend the country.  (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  93. 2022 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Taiwan is reading the tea leaves and recognizes that as Russian efforts in Ukraine continue to sour, a second front is about to open up thus Taipei is putting out a pre-invasion handbook with which to prepare their people for the inevitable.  We suspect that Beijing is weighing the consequences if they lose capital warships in the Straits of Taiwan.  Will they continue building armaments for future plans or will they roll the dice as Vladimir Putin has?  In other news related to China, Warner Bros. is taking loads of heat from WOKE Americans over censoring Dumbledore as gay at the request of Beijing.
  94. 2022 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- In yet another blow to Democrat dreams and hopes, a new Axios-Ipsos poll says that less than 10-percent of American voters believe that COVID-19 is a severe problem in the country at present.  Give the Dems time and by October, the country will be beset by another wave of COVID-19, possibly the Frankenstein variant,[xxvii] mentioned a week ago in England and then instantly sent into the shadows.  This could become a two-year cycle every election year where new strains of COVID-19 come out with just enough time to cause problems for elections.

  100. 2022 Tuesday O: Political News I- Governor Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a bill prohibiting abortion in the state.  In other news, Republicans are calling out U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm over her sneaking components of the Green New Deal into ‘law’ by making them regulations that are not passed by lawmakers thus, it is difficult to overturn or to remove them. Still, when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, for every new regulation passed, two had to be removed.  Boy, those were the good old days.
  101. 2022 Tuesday P: Political News II- Democrats continue enduring self-inflicted problems via their electing crooks and scumbags.  Federal agents scooped up Empire State Lt. Governor Brian Benjamin for campaign finance fraud.   Upon being charged, the Lt. Governor resigned.  What the heck is wrong in the Empire State?  Former Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo was a POS, state Attorney-General Letitia James is a POS, current Governor Kathy “Heil Hitler” Hochul certainly is a POS just as current Big Apple Mayor Eric “Sleazebag” Adams is and his predecessor, Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio most definitely was. It would appear that the Empire State has rapidly passed Illinois as the most corrupt state in the Union.  They have lost other losers such as former Governor Eliot Spitzer and former Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, and an extensive list of others.  How embarrassing.
  102. 2022 Tuesday Q: Political News III- It appears that Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, is aware that his popularity is waning.  He is pondering his political future.  You still have a couple of years to straighten up, Mitt, but NO true Republican would ever vote for you again, especially if you tried to run for the presidency again.   In other news, Twitter has temporarily banned Jack Posobiec over his Disney ‘grooming’ parody.  Speaking of Disney, up until the state passed the Parental Rights in Education law donated $190,000 to GOP candidates whereas now, no more.  We suspect they donate loads of money to Democrats, however… Texas Department of Education issues guidelines for library books in its schools.  No perversion here, folks.
  103. 2022 Tuesday R: Mass Shootings News- This morning, a shooter carried out an attack on New York City’s subway system using smoke bombs to confuse his intended victims and a handgun to shoot them.  He shot 10-11 people but killed none.  Approximately 16 people were injured in the melee and while fleeing the scene.  Many of the victims appeared to be Asian and the shooter was identified as a black man named Frank James.  Law enforcement later found a U-Haul truck from Arizona and are carrying out a massive manhunt for Mr. James.  Currently, there is no belief that the mass shooting is related to terrorism.  (Note- if it were a white guy, it would be white supremacism run amok).  Regarding this unfortunate incident, Congresswoman Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says that attacks ‘follow the undermining of the NYPD.’
  104. 2022 Tuesday S: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1754 what with a $106 million jackpot on the line: 02, 08, 14, 20, 31, and Mega 17. Out of 59,520 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 75 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $237 apiece.
  105. 2022 Tuesday T: Thanks for joining us today, we are attempting to become a bit more middle of the road so that entities such as Bing won’t throw our search results into the garbage.  This, of course, will require time and diligence on our parts just as it will require patience on the part of our critics.  We see the writing upon the wall, Biden administration.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Levon Helm had formed his own group back while he was still part of the Band: Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars.  His record label released an archival release- “Levon Helm and the RCO All-Stars: Live at the Palladium, NYC, New Year’s Eve 1977” on July 25, 2006.  Of the 13 songs on the disc, most of them were covers which is cool because we have a wide range of musical influences here.  The band was more of an orchestra what with Levon Helm (lead and backing vocals/drums), the great Paul Butterfield (harmonicas), Steve “The Colonel” Cropper and Fred Carter Jr. (guitars), Booker T. Jones (keyboards and percussion), the “Night Tripper” aka Mac Rebennack (keyboards and gris-gris), Donald “Duck” Dunn (bass), a horn sections, strings, a conductor, and guest appearances by fellow Band mates Robbie Robertson and Garth Hudson.  We love the album, particularly the Taj Mahal cover of “Ain’t That a Lotta Love,” which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out wherever you can find it- you will be glad you did.  At Amazon, you can pick it up for less than $29.97 so what the heck?  Seek it out now…

  53. 2009 Thursday: After NOT being seen since August 2008, North Korea’s Great Leader Kim Jong Un makes a public appearance.  He is after all, running for another term as leader of his nation.  We bet he will get 99.999-percent and the fraction that don’t vote for him will be sent to the gulags with three generations of their families.   
  54. 2010 Friday: Rescuers search for over 200 people believed buried in their homes by a landslide in Murro do Bumba near Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  Meanwhile, ISIS is excited in that they are claiming credit for a recent triple bombing in Baghdad that blew up 40 poor souls and damaged some nearby embassies.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace’ strikes again- Islam.

  56. 2012 Monday: Facebook purchases Instagram, a photo sharing application, for $1 billion.  Elsewhere, the North Koreans are preparing for another missile launch which the world’s spy satellites claim might be a new intercontinental missile with which to threaten the entire world but especially the Obama administration.  Meanwhile, the Arab Spring continues as Turkey gets angry that the Syrians are firing cross-border barrages into refugee camps on the Turkish side.

  59. 2015 Thursday: The Federal Aviation Administration exempts Amazon.com from commercial drone flight prohibitions, which allows it to flight test delivery drones.  However, due to the amount of time it took to approve them, their drone fleet grew older, and they had to reapply for a new exemption.  Meanwhile, as ISIS continues spreading terror to the borders of other nations surrounding Syria, Iraq says the scumbags have murdered at least 52 Iraqi police officers working along their shared border with Syria.

  62. 2018 Monday: Illinois junior Senator Tammy Duckworth, Democrat, becomes the first sitting U.S. senator to give birth while in office.  Congratulations!  Next, U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde Smith, R-MS, entered the world’s greatest deliberative body on this date.  Meanwhile, Fleetwood Mac[ii] undergoes change yet again what with the firing of guitarist/vocalist Lindsay Buckingham and by replacing him with Neil Finn and Michael Campbell.  Elsewhere, the Israeli government is investigating a video that just happened to pop up showing Israeli soldiers cheering the death of a Palestinian terrorist shot dead by an Israeli sniper.  The kill shot went through the Gaza border fence and took out the thug.  Since when can warriors not celebrate the death of an enemy?  Elsewhere, the U.S. State Department says that North Korea’s Kim Jong Un is displaying a willingness to discuss ‘denuclearization’ with the U.S.  
  63. 2018 Monday A: Meanwhile, the FBI swoop down on President Donald J. Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen as they search for evidence of illicit payments from the Trump campaign to porn star, Stormy Daniels.  Cohen would flip on his boss but could not give federal prosecutors anything of value.  Next, comedian Bill Cosby’s retrial begins today.  The comedian is hopeful a new trial will clear him of all charges which he says are BOGUS.  Doping women and then doing them?  Come on, he’s ‘America’s dad.’   
  64. 2019 Tuesday: For their part in the pro-independence movement, a court finds nine leading members of Hong Kong’s “Umbrella Movement” guilty on public nuisance charges and sentences them to prison.   Meanwhile, as the college bribery scandal continues gathering steam, federal prosecutors indict another 16 people involved in the scam.   Elsewhere, a youthful suicide bomber attacks a market in the Sinai, blowing up several policemen and several other civilians while wounding at least 27.  The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.
  65. 2020 Thursday: The Chinese-engineered COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues claiming lives and trashing the global economy.  As of today, we have 1,600,427 confirmed cases of this mess encircling the globe what with 95,699 confirmed deaths but 354,464 confirmed recoveries as well.  In the United States, there are 464,865 confirmed cases of the Kung Flu what with 16,498 confirmed deaths and 25,343 confirmed recoveries.   The economy continues suffering due to the mitigation Drs. Anthony Fauci and Deborah Birx continue demanding of the American people which is insane.  Some places are not suffering whereas some Democratic strongholds such as New York state and New York City continue racking up the losses.  Meanwhile, the Stock Market finishes UP which is awesome with the DOW Jones Industrial Complex closing at 23,719.37, up 285.80 (1.22%); the NASDAQ closed at 8,153,57 up 62.67 (0.77%), and the S & P closed at 2,789.82, up 39.84 (1.45%).  Real Clear Politics claims that President Trump’s approval ratings are +47 and -52.  Polls also claim that Vice President “China Joe” Biden is leading President Trump.  Bulls**t.  Finally, Chef Itzi Nakamura of the AICPENDBLOG.COM now believes that when the COVID-19 mess ends, the United States must reimplement the Two-China Policy, recognizing Nationalist China, aka Taiwan, as an equal to the mainland if not the legitimate ruler of the mainland.
  66. 2021 Friday: JOE BIDEN NEWS I– Various news agencies on the left (i.e., Fake News) are trying to clean up what Joe Biden said yesterday regarding all the restrictions he is going to slap on lawful gun owners.  Even CNN had to lay out the fact that the infamous ‘gun show loophole’ does not exist due to all the rules and regulations emplaced upon such events.  Folks, Joe Biden has NO clue what he is doing, saying, and damned sure thinking.  What the gun-grabber Democrats fail to understand is the American people are NOT going to hand over their firearms, their ammunition, and their accessories.  None of us are.  Federal law enforcement is going to find themselves in similar situations as the British did in the months leading up to the Revolutionary War, shooters behind every bush, every tree, on every rooftop, in cars, in back alleys, everywhere so any attempt at entering our homes and taking our firearms away is going to meet with disaster.  As Charlton Heston once said, “You can have my guns when you pry them out of my cold dead fingers.”  Remember this: there are MORE of us than there are of THEM.  Joe Biden did mumble that gun violence (which is committed by criminals, Joe) is a ‘public health epidemic or crisis’ or whatever it was he said.  Joe- tell blue state governors and mayors to turn the cops loose and go after illegal gun owners and crimes.
  67. 2021 Friday A: JOE BIDEN NEWS II– After Hunter Biden went on Jimmy Kimmel and told the host that the ‘laptop’ issue is little more than a red herring, news comes out that the laptop the computer store owner handed over to the FBI is indeed Hunter Biden’s laptop.  Hunter Biden who loves indulging in drugs and narcotics and sleeping with hookers and skanks and also has problems disposing of firearms properly should be doing time in federal prison.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s budget contains $131 million with which to combat domestic terrorism.[iii]
  68. 2021 Friday B: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Antonio Mayorkas is meeting with leaders and immigration advocates in Texas as the illegal alien invasion continues ramping up.  NO one seems to want to do what must be done.[iv]   Elsewhere, the Department of Homeland Security reports 19,000 illegal alien brats crossed the southern border in the month of March alone.  The cost to the American taxpayers per week is reported to be $60 million to house just the illegal alien minors.  People, load them on empty jetliners, fly them into San Salvador and Guatemala City and let THEM deal with getting them back to the parents.  Enough is flipping enough.  Next, Biden’s Border Coordinator Roberta Jacobson is stepping down from her post.  Apparently, it’s too much for her.
  69. 2021 Friday C: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE II– the White House says there’s no basis to close illegal alien holding pens along the southern border over rumors of sexual abuse and rape.  His Health and Humans Services Secretary Xavier “Abort them All” Becerra is down there investigating the allegations.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration is begging non-governmental business to help mitigate the southern border crisis.  Hmmm, sounds like MORE bulls**t.  Elsewhere, Congressman Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the border crisis.’   Finally, Congressman Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district says that ‘Joe Biden and “Kooky Kamala” Harris are terrified of visiting the border’ and seeing the horrendous misery they have caused.  Shame on them.
  70. 2021 Friday D: COVID-19 NEWS– the United States is sending three field hospitals to Argentina to help them deal with their COVID-19 pandemic problems.  Elsewhere, a mass vaccination site in Colorado using the Johnson & Johnson vaccine[v] had to stop vaccinations after inoculating 1,700 people as 11 became extremely ill and 2 ended up in the hospital.   Meanwhile, after Joe Biden labeled Texas political leaders for behaving like Neanderthals over their lifting of Joe’s demands for a mask mandate, COVID-19 is still under control.  In other shocking news, 246 fully-vaccinated residents in the Wolverine State tested positive for the ‘VID and 3 of them died.  Whoa.
  71. 2021 Friday E: U.S. SUPREME COURT NEWS– Joe Biden (well, the voice in his ear) is calling for the establishment of a commission to investigate expanding the U.S. Supreme Court as well as ‘maybe emplacing term limits on the sitting justices.’  Sounds rather like the plan “Prancing Pete” Buttigieg- now the U.S. secretary of the Department of Transportation pushed during the primary campaign.   
  72. 2021 Friday F: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I–  the United Kingdom and nations are around the world are mourning the death of Prince Philip- the Duke of Edenborough and Queen Elizabeth II’s husband.   Prince Philip was two months shy of hitting the century mark.  Many are pondering as to whether the person formerly known as Prince Harry and his boss Meghan Markle will attend the funeral.  IF we were the royal family, we’d tell Harry, “You can come but leave that nutty bitch at home.” In other news that broke late last night, Joe Biden is considering sending some U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea- a Russian flipping lake, for God’s sake– to make a show of force to Vladimir Putin who will soon be invading the Ukraine.  Also, the Chi-Coms said to the Biden administration that ‘if U.S. warships continue passing through the Straits of Taiwan, we could soon see Chinese naval assets patrolling the Gulf of Mexico.’  Wow.  Joe, Joe, Joe, WTF are you doing?  GOP senators say, ‘Joe Biden’s defense bill sends the wrong message to our enemies and allies.’
  73. 2021 Friday G: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– South Korea has agreed to help Iran recover assets frozen within their country if the mullahs will allow a South Korean tanker to go free.  Elsewhere, the Zionist Organization of America strongly opposes the Biden plan to lift ALL sanctions on the jihadist country of Iran without anything in return.  Others believe that Iran atomic talks could set the stage of U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken having a face-to-face with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif.  The U.S. is making serious overtures to the murderous regime in Tehran if the mullahs will permit the United States to return to brown-nosing Ayatollah Khamenei’s gnarly, wrinkled ass.  Finally, La Soufriere, a dormant volcano on the eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent decided to come alive today.  Dormant since 1979, citizens of the island were surprised to say the least when smoke and ash began  pouring out of the peak and rolling down the sides onto nearby villages.  Government began evacuating people in the area.
  74. 2021 Friday H: DEMOCRATIC PARTY NEWS– The Wisconsin State Supreme Court rebuffs Republican lawmakers and won’t let them clean up the voter rolls.[vi]  Meanwhile, Senator Joe Manchin, D-WV, says it’s time for the nation to ‘stop with the divisive politics.’  Joe- it’s YOUR party doing all the s**t talking.  Elsewhere, James Carville is expressing dismay that the Democratic Party is embracing identity politics and cancel culture.  Next, a recent report says that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was considering retirement before Donald J. Trump won the presidency in 2016.
  75. 2021 Friday I: REPUBLICAN PARTY NEWS– Senator Thom Tillis, R-N.C., underwent surgery for his prostate cancer diagnosis.  No word on when he will return to his duties.  Next, former Senator Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, slams the ‘disinformation campaign’ the Democrat Party is running against the new election laws in the Peach State.  Kelly, everyone knows the Democrats are LIARS.  Elsewhere, we learn that a Super PAC is backing Alaska machine RINO Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski which they are touting will defeat President Donald J. Trump’s plans to oust her.  This is going to be fun.  Murkowski must be humiliated and booted from office like the scurrilous POS she is.  Speaking of RINO garbage, former House Speaker and all-around loser John Boehner says in his new book (big deal) that ‘President Donald J. Trump bears full responsibility for the Capitol Hill Riots on January 06, 2021.’  Most now understand that those ‘riots’ were the biggest FALSE FLAG OPERATION ever run in this country’s politics.   Mr. Boehner: “F**K YOU.”
  76. 2021 Friday J: TECH AND BUSINESS NEWS– Netflix acquires streaming rights to all upcoming Sony movies.  Meanwhile, due to the massive tax hike plan in New York state, numerous businesses such as Jet Blue, J.P. Morgan, Chase, Citibank, and numerous others are all abandoning the state ahead of the promised tax increases.  Imagine if Tallahassee, Tampa, or Miami became the NEW financial capital of the world?  Empire State Democrats should be wanting to lynch Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov because once lost, those cash cows will NEVER return.[vii]  
  77. 2021 Friday K: ECONOMIC NEWS– McDonald’s is hiring for new positions across the country with 25,000 alone in the Lone Star State.   Meanwhile, Impossible Foods is in talks to go public sometime within the next several months through an IPO.  The company is valued at $4 billion.  Elsewhere, while under review, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is permitting the Dakota Access Pipeline to remain in operation no matter what sniveling activists say.  Meanwhile, Jeff Bezos and Amazon are dancing the jig today as Alabama Amazon employees voted 2-to-1 against unionization.   Next, Governor Ron DeSantis and Florida are suing the Biden administration to get the cruise line industry back up and running.  After all, if everyone follows CDC guidelines, WHY can’t the cruise lines return to business?
  78. 2021 Friday L: 2020 ELECTION NEWS, FRAUD, THEFT, AND CORRUPTION NEWS– The Arizona election audit is moving along at a snail’s pace but all because of the actions of Maricopa County Democrats who seem to feel they answer to NO ONE other than themselves.  We would hope that Governor Doug Ducey emulate the actions of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, GOP, by firing obstinate Democrat election officials who will not hand over all information related to last year’s elections.   Elsewhere, Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger refers three counties for ballot drop box probes.   New Hampshire also is ordering an audit of 2020 Presidential Election votes after reams of evidence came to light showing that a fairly sizeable portion of Republican votes mysteriously switched to Democratic votes not only for president but for some down-ballot races.
  79. 2021 Friday M: NATIONAL NEWS– Texas is implementing a $4.3 million plan with which to mitigate the homeless problem which mostly is in the liberal bastion of Austin.    Next, President Donald J. Trump blasts Governor Asa Hutchinson over his veto of the transgender-tranny-chicks with dicks- ban.  He says, “Bye-bye, Asa.”  Speaking of the 45th president, he gave his endorsement today to Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL.[viii]  Elsewhere, rapper Earl Simmons, aka DMX, is dead at age 50 from a drug-induced heart attack.  His 15 kids by different baby mamas were all trying to get in and see their beloved daddy before he gave up the ghost.
  80. 2021 Friday N: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 134,038,180 confirmed cases, +1,108,348, 2,904,554  confirmed deaths, +19,153, and 76,188,672 confirmed recoveries, +752,117.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,201,770 confirmed cases, UP 83,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 565,507 confirmed deaths, UP 1,060, and 118,883,459 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix] 
  81. 2021 Friday O: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 236,964 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  
  82. 2021 Friday P: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,691,435 confirmed cases, 60,142 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,111,807 confirmed cases, 33,968 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 30,673 confirmed cases, 470 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 375,408 confirmed cases, 5,367 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Colorado, the state that reaped a windfall when Major League Baseball stripped the mostly black city of Atlanta of the All-Star Game and relocated it to the mostly white Rocky Mountain State: they have 476,630 confirmed cases, 6,200 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[x] 
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 835,641 confirmed cases, 6,280 confirmed deaths, and 824,748 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Ecuador, home of the Cuyabeno Wildlife Preserve: 341,649 cases of the virus, 17,115 confirmed deaths and 290,314 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  84. 2021 Friday R:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,800.60, UP 297.03 points (+0.89%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,900.18, UP 70.88 points (+0.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,128.80, UP 31.63 points (+0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.34 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,744.310 per troy oz., -0.70 (-0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.33 per troy ounce, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.20 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.05 per pound, 0.00 (0.12%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,639.24 per troy oz, +14.44 (+0.55%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,100.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.34%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.55 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.15.     In Djiboutian Franc, one greenback equals 177.50 and in Danish Krone, a buck equals 6.25.[xv]  
  85. 2021 Friday S: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.926 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.724 in Hawaii, and $3.335 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.016.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,151,463,572,701 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  86. 2021 Friday T: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk is being added to New York’s WACB lineup.  Elsewhere, Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, is preparing for a major speech at the Women for America First Summit even though Democratic enemies are trying to destroy him.  We believe the man is as clean as the wind-driven snow.  Elsewhere, former Hennepin County forensic pathologist Lindsey Thomas who retired in 2017 testified at Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin’s trial today that the cause of death for George Floyd was the deprivation of oxygen that occurred because of the way Chauvin and the other officers restrained the perp.  She said she arrived at this conclusion from watching the video.  Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas Baker more or less said the same thing.  
  87. 2021 Friday U: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– Next, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear signs a partial ban on “NO KNOCK” warrants such as the one that led to the death of EMT Breonna Taylor when police burst into the apartment she shared with her boyfriend.  The boyfriend began shooting first and Ms. Taylor died in the subsequent crossfire.  The officers involved in the mishap were cleared but fired and Taylor’s boyfriend who was facing loads of charges had them dropped.  Finally, Black Lives Matter continues demonstrating it’s built atop a foundation of deceit as a cofounder of the group- Patrisse Khan-Cullors just bought a $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon, which many critics are pointing out ‘ain’t exactly the ‘hood.’[xviii]    
  88. 2021 Friday V: Also, stay tuned for the Mega-Millions Draw #1649!  Here are the numbers: 22, 26, 27, 58, 66, and Mega 12.  Out of 105,034 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $26,262.
  89. 2021 Friday W: The 66th U.S. Attorney General of the United States Ramsey Clark died in New York City, N.Y., at age 93.  A Democrat, he served under President Lyndon Baines Johnson from March 10, 1967, to January 20, 1969.  It is interesting to note that he also served on fallen dictator Saddam Hussein’s defense team when the tyrant went on trial for his life.
  90. 2022 Saturday: Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Joining the drummer/vocalist, were Little Sammy Davis (vocals/harmonica), Fred Scribner (guitars), and Michael Merritt (bass).  Davis is the vocalist and front man for the group seeing as how Helm was recovering from throat cancer which is amazing because the band roars through a set of blues tunes that leave one’s head ablaze and ears a-smoking.  We hope that you will investigate this one to your heart’s content and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and enjoy.  It’s amazing, of that we guarantee.

[i] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[ii] 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 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.

[iii] We hope that a generous portion of this money goes into investigating the rash of BLACK Democrats assaulting Asian-Americans.  Sadly, for the Dems, very few whites are committing the crimes they would like the world to believe they are committing.

[iv] We encourage militarizing the southern border by moving military bases along the southern frontier.  We also support laying in minefields and other human, vehicle, boat, and even air obstacles to prevent illegals from swarming into the country.  We believe they should seed the Rio Grande River with baby alligators scooped up from the Deep South and relocated west just as we support Black Ops going into northern Mexico and eradicating all human traffickers through clandestine operations.  Without control of the border, both the United States and Mexico will collapse with Canada following along behind the two countries within 5-10 years.  This is an example of a true existential crisis and unless we begin behaving like we want to save our country, our nation is going to be lost.

[v] We oppose this vaccine due to tissues from aborted fetuses being used in both its study and its manufacturing.

[vi] What more proof does one need to determine that yes, indeed, the scumbag Democrats STOLE the 2020 Elections.  They robbed President Donald J. Trump’s second term from him (they will rue the day they did not give him his second term because when he returns in 2024, he will be so on top of his game that the Democrats are going to cringe in the corners like the beaten wives and brats they are.  Moses Scharbug III has said, “Julius Caesar never wanted to become dictator, his political enemies forced him to become one and man, oh, man did they rue the day they did.
