- 2018 Tuesday: The 104thS. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to replace 99th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement. He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later. Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.

- 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor. Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags. Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country. ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.
- 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women. He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. What a worthless POS. One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry. He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him. (For more information on these felons, please see <https://www.politico.com/states/california/story/2020/03/27/newsom-grants-clemency-to-26-including-man-who-stabbed-elderly-woman-to-death-1269447>).
- 2020 Friday A: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 17,321,394 confirmed cases, UP by 212,059 cases, 673,822 confirmed deaths, UP by 50,021 deaths, and 10,155,026 confirmed recoveries, UP by 154,288 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,625,180 confirmed cases, UP by 62,570 new cases, 155,246 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,201 new deaths, and 2,262,974 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,679 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
- 2020 Friday B: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 493,588 confirmed cases, UP 8,086 cases, 9,005 confirmed deaths, UP by 96, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,989 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,226 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats.
- 2020 Friday C: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,428.32, UP 114.67 points (+0.44%). Next, the NASDAQ: 10,745.27, UP 157.46 points (+1.49%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,271.12, UP 24.90 points (+0.77%). The price of GOLD is $1,973.30 per troy oz., +10.50 (+0.53%) while the price of SILVER is $24.63 per troy ounce, +0.414 (+1.71%). The price of PLATINUM is $919.70 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.09) while the price of COPPER is $2.86 per pound, -0.0085 (-0.30%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.43 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.40%). Currently, one dollar U.S. = 6.97 yuan. Meanwhile, the U.S. unemployment rate has dropped from 13.3-percent in June to 11.1-percent in July.
- 2020 Friday D: Rasmussen polling has President Donald J. Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent. Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint. God bless you, madam, please get well soon. Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden. In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
- 2021 Saturday: Friends, here we are, a Saturday. As a loyal Democrat, I am troubled by much of what is going on…my party once fought back against tyranny now we ARE tyranny. NO more lockdowns, NO more COVID-19 lies, hydroxychloroquine does indeed work, and anyone who claims that it doesn’t or that never-ending lockdowns work needs to have their heads examined…by a Chi-Com shrink.

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Saturday, July 31, 2021:
[i] We plan on promoting the music of the Move, Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne after we wrap up Supertramp. Stay with us.
[ii] We definitely look forward to doing the music of R.E.M. at some point in the next five years.
[iii] Let’s give him Puerto Rico.
[iv] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016. This included the members solo projects.
[v] Hillary was raising money for a long, long time. Too bad she wasn’t a better candidate and too bad Barack Hussein Obama didn’t do a better job of helping her.
[vi] Both of President Donald J. Trump’s two court picks Neil Gorsuch (#113) and Brett Kavanaugh (#114) have voted against the president who nominated them more often than they have not- just like Associate Justice Kennedy! What is it about Republican picks?
[vii] Regarding the Russians and election interference, what the f**k else is new? They have been doing this sort of crap since Josef Stalin was running the country.
