  62. 2020 Friday: Following last night’s announcement that President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for the Chi-Vi, they are in isolation.   Speaking of President Trump, Reuters reports the results of a recent poll that shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden is smoking Trump by virtue of what many believe to be an insurmountable lead of nine points.  However, Gallup reports that President Trump’s approval ratings are at their highest since the month of March, 46-percent.  A question asked by Gallup pollsters, “Despite whom you plan to support on November 3 and viewing things objectively, who do you think will win on November 3?”  A whopping 56-percent to 40-percent said they believe that President Trump will win re-election.  That says a lot.  Still, a poll on CNBC says that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is going to whoop President Trump by 54-percent to 41-percent.    Meanwhile, the Democrat-controlled U.S. House of Representatives passed a $2.2 TRILLION COVID-19 relief bill.  All Republicans- plus 18 Democrats- voted against it.  It is expected to die a slow death in the U.S. Senate. 
  63. 2020 Friday A: Chinese state-run media is laughing at President Trump following his announcement of having the Chinese Virus.  Why are you laughing?  This has been Beijing’s plan all along, to infect as many Americans as possible.  The rest of the world is merely collateral damage in the eyes of the modern-day Mandarin scum.  Speaking of all-things Chi-Com, Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Miami Heat (Lakers won 116 to 98) had the lowest viewership since 1994 when the New York Knicks played the Houston Rockets faced off against one another: 7 million, down from Game 1 of last year’s finals between the Toronto Raptors and the Golden State Warriors.  That matchup had 13.7 million viewers.  Perhaps it’s time for the NBA to move to communist China, a place they seem to value more than they do their native country.  Adios, muchachos.
  64. 2020 Friday B: U.S. unemployment dropped below 8-percent yesterday, coming in at 7.9-percent what with 661,000 new jobs created and an increase in wage growth by 4.7-percent.   Speaking of economics, Switzerland announces it has approved a minimum wage of $25 per hour.  Yikes.  The cost of everything is going to skyrocket which means the mountain-surrounded country will have to import more Muslim refugees to fill low-wage jobs (under the table, if you know what we mean).  Elsewhere, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces that the confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett will plow ahead, even as Democrats screech for a slow-down in the process.  Speaking of court matters, the U.S. Supreme Court says it’s going to review a BALLOT HARVESTING LAW in the state of Arizona.
  65. 2020 Friday C: Earlier today, Marine One transported President Donald J. Trump to Walter Reed Medical Center due to his Xi Jinping Bat Flu symptoms.  Upon arrival, he walked off the helicopter on his own volition, snapped a salute to military personnel, and headed for the hospital.  First Lady Melania Trump remains at the White House.  Son, Baron, and other family members have tested negative for the virus.  We neglected to mention that RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel also has the Chi-Vi.  Get well, Mr. President, and Nancy “Mumbles’ Pelosi, stop talking about presidential succession: YOU will NEVER get close to the White House other than as an invited guest.

  69. 2020 Friday G:  As has become the norm, if you want to know what sorts of devious activities the Democratic Party and their bosses in Beijing are up to, you will have to check in throughout the day as more and more information continues coming to light.  We know the Chi-Coms and their allies in the Democratic Party are celebrating the president’s plight; their time is coming and it’s coming soon.  We also know as of today that the Chi-Coms are waging war on our blog site, using their stooge at Google- Sundar Pichai- to put us in page 100 of search results.  What do you scumbags fear?  YOU fear free speech?  We know Sundar Pichai sure the heck does; after all, he’s the POS who shut down the popular Google Plus site, used by millions of users around the world.  He did to stick his nose up Xi Jinping’s butt.
  70. 2020 Friday H: We learned this evening that the Michigan Supreme Court struck down Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, Democrat- a woman, who if ANTIFA truly battled fascism would be there en masse doing battle with her- struck down her recent bald-faced attempt at extending her dictatorial power by extending the COVID-19 lockdown until the end of October.  They said without approval by the state’s legislature, her orders were invalid.  According to the court, ‘life must begin returning to normal.’  Elsewhere, we learned that former White House counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway tested positive for the Wuhan Virus as has North Carolina Senator Thom Tillis, Republican, Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, and three members of the White House Press Corps.   Sadly, many on the left are praying the president dies while world leaders- from Boris Johnson, UK, Angela Merkel, Germany, Vladimir Putin, Russia, and Kim Jong-Un, North Korea.  Thank you.   We also must note that both the former Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden both tested NEGATIVE today for the Chinese Virus.  Good health to you and yours.

We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [ix]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 403,498 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 580 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xv]    Let us look at one other North Carolina: $3.008.  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- Netherlands: $8.257 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,831,207,808,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.

  79. 2022 Sunday: Observation of the Day- Like many of my colleagues, My contention is the United Nations no longer possesses any relevancy what with the ongoing war in the Ukraine and the atrocities Russian and Russian mercs are committing there.[xviii]  While I understand that Russia can veto any resolution merely because of their presence on the U.N. Security Council, one would think that the UN Secretary-General would be hitting them every day with demands to cease, desist, and to evacuate that war-torn land.  As with most things, the creators of the U.N. somehow did not envision the possibility that one of the five permanent members would begin an illegal and unjustified war and yet it has happened at least twice now: George W. Bush’s criminal invasion of Iraq and now Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine.  BOTH of these men should be tried in the Hague and both these men should be given lengthy prison sentences.  I would hope that the next president- the rightful president– uncovers a way through which we can rectify this glaring mistake.  We know the current lump of aged flesh in the Oval Office will do nothing other than to commit billions and billions of borrowed Chi-Com monies to the fight AFTER he and his corrupt family skim off copious amounts of cash.  I’m not saying anything everyone does not know, okay?  The Biden regime and family are as corrupt as they come.  It is what it is.  Let’s sweep the November midterms and let us march forward as a unified people.  See you in six months- let us hope things are better than they are now.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0970 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sunset Magic.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick is the one that pushed them across the finish line as far as being superstars.  On February 12, 1998, Cheap Trick released the full edition of their first live album, “Live at Budokan,”- “Live at Budokan- the Complete Concert.”  The band had become superstars in Japan what with “I Want You to Want Me” and the version on this album, hyped-up made-for-AM-radio single monopolized the airwaves for weeks and much like the tune, “Surrender,” remains a radio favorite to this day.  This is perhaps one of the all-time best live albums to come out of the 1970’s and would be up there with “Frampton Comes Alive” as a mega-seller.  Once again, the lineup is the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion).  We hope that everyone will visit their favorite site for the absolute best in rock music and will then add it to your never-ending, forever-growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-approved music and DVDs- you will be glad you did.

[i] We hope that when President Trump returns to the White House that he and a unified GOP will deport the United Nations out of New York City and send it to Beijing where it’s better suited.  Get the U.N. out of the U.S. NOW.

[ii] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin doing the music of the Police as well as of the band’s three members but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[iv] 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.

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

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

[vii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[vii] Not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of Bob Dylan but one day, we sure heck we do.  Stay tuned.

[xviii] Nor has it in a long, long time.  At least not since Germanic or Nordic Europeans served as secretary-generals.  Same goes for the Catholic Church- I hope the next pontiff is a European and not some Third World pick.  Pope Francis has been a disaster.
