The way things are going, the senile idiot in the White House is going to set off the Fourth World War- NATO has no business surrounding Russia with its military borders nor do we have business patrolling in the Black Sea…

b. When the nations behind the Iron Curtain in Eastern Europe were allowed to join the EU and NATO, the promise to the Russians was NEVER to extend the borders of the Western military alliance to those of Russia. That was a solemn promise with which to avoid war. With the loser in the White House, it appears to be a guarantee…

  1. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 260,311,551 confirmed cases, +633,524, 5,199,480 confirmed deaths, +8,259 and 235,287,150 confirmed recoveries, +477,239. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 48,999,737 confirmed cases, UP 33,826 from yesterday’s reporting, 798,551 confirmed deaths, UP +414,[i] and 38,799,986 confirmed recoveries, UP 19,566. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]   
  2. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 484,171 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 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop him.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump with 80,915 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths.   While we don’t like celebrating the fact that Joe Biden and his boss in Beijing have a worse record in a single year than did President Donald J. Trump 15 months.  NO WONDER another lockdown is coming even though the drooling schmeckel in the White House says it’s not.    
  3. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,932,479 confirmed cases, 74,345 confirmed deaths, and 4,858,345 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,731,537 confirmed cases, 61,147 confirmed deaths, and 3,531,721 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 87,183 confirmed cases, 1,014 confirmed deaths, and 86,169 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 771,525 confirmed cases, 9,261 confirmed deaths, and 326,725 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Indiana: they have 1,084,488 confirmed cases, 17,386 confirmed deaths, and 996,730 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,341,305 confirmed cases, 8,182 confirmed deaths, and 1,327,046 confirmed recoveries (somewhat still the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Myanmar, 63rd country on the list: 520,213 cases of the virus, 19,058 confirmed death and 494,107 confirmed recoveries.[iv]

  6. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.709 per gallon, $3.346 in Florida, $4.363 in Hawaii, and $3.877 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Nebraska: $3.198.  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 52nd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Argentina: $3.642 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,988,398,025,047 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 Saudi Arabia 1 the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Singapore with $168,000,000 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.
  7. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Today is Day No. 243 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the disaster on the border and Day No. 156 since she arrived there to do the job.  Ah, well, here are the stats as presented by One America News as to the appalling cost of caring for these unwanted invaders as well as the low estimate for how many of these unwanted invaders are spread throughout the United States.  First, here is the cost for just this day alone of caring for the illegal aliens: $563,470,464.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the invaders for this year alone: $360,015,626,240.  Third, here is the atrocious number of those who have managed to invade the country in 2021: 3,689,871.  Fourth and final, here is the low estimate of illegals living within the United States: 37,689,872.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  8. 2021 Thursday G: Illegal Aliens-Invaders-and-‘Refugees’ News- Today, we learned that the Biden regime once again has lied to the American people.  This time, we learned that about 75-percent of the Afghan ‘refugees’ flown into the United States as the nation imploded were unvetted.  This means that most had no background checks meaning they were not U.S. citizens, green card holders, SIV holders, or visa applicants but unknowns.  Next, supposedly, illegal aliens heading north to the U.S. border have now accepted visas to remain in lovely Mexico.  We will see.  In other news, we learn that smugglers bringing illegals north to the border are raking in $1.7 billion annually.  One must ponder as to HOW MUCH money is finding its way into the hip pockets of elected Democrats and RINOs?)
  9. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Dead Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi’s son, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, has been disqualified from seeking to become the next leader of the former Italian colony.  Meanwhile, a U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer sailing around the Black Sea- a Russian ‘lake’ of sorts- was tracked openly by Russian aircraft and warships.  (Note- we fear brain-dead Joe Biden is going to spark a Fourth World War simply because he is afflicted by Alzheimer’s disease).  In other news, Canada’s murder rate has hit a 15-year-high.  WTF is going on, people?  Finally, France vows to do a better job patrolling the English Channel so that future boats full of Middle Eastern and North African illegal aliens do not sink in overcrowded, flimsy boats.   (Note- we hope they begin lighting these illegal craft with their deck guns.  Time to send a message).
  10. 2021 Thursday I: Health and Medical Alerts- A new report says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is going to continue his outrageous push to jab the arms of young children and even babies.  What the hell is wrong with this man?  When will a PETA member deal with him?  Meanwhile, some states and cities are still debating whether frontline workers should receive hazard pay or not.  We say, “PAY THEM.”  Next, a new poll in the Lone Star state says that fully one-fifth of the population- around 18-percent- says they ‘won’t undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’
  11. 2021 Thursday J: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- In another slap to feeble Joe Biden, Iran now refuses to come to the table and talk with this usurper.  In other news highly damaging to the bogus regime, Senator Joe Manchin, Blue Dog Democrat-W. VA, is calling on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to reopen the Keystone XL Pipeline project.  Next, Al Roker- the once roly-poly weatherman and now talking head spoke via remote with the so-called ‘46th president’ during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade.  The memory-challenged ‘president’ proclaimed with Dr. Jill by his side, that “America is back.”  (Note- nope, it’s not.  When Trump returns, it will be back).  Finally, Joe Biden visited a New England U.S. Coast Guard base today and was flipped off by some wag.  Sucks to be you, Joe.
  12. 2021 Thursday K: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- Conservative pundit Ali Alexander put a dagger into this bogus ‘committee’ by saying that the use of burner phones among the leftists running amok on January 06, 2021- along with FBI undercover operatives and paid informants- further exonerates President Donald J. Trump from whatever bogus charges they continue trying to tie to him and his close associates.
  13. 2021 Thursday L: Political News I- Former Congressman Pete Hoekstra, R-MI 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden has painted himself into a corner regarding the Ukraine.’  Next, Senator Ted Cruz lambasted POS California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom for embarking on an expensive Mexican vacation all the while the state continues to blaze away due to criminal mismanagement.   Speaking of another loser- this time, Joe Biden, former Trump advisor Rick Gates said, ‘Joe’s plunging poll numbers are great news,’ which they are.  Joe will forever be the WORST PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE NATION. Period.
  14. 2021 Thursday M: Political News II- Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says she does ‘NOT BELIEVE that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, possesses the necessary votes to become speaker should the GOP retake the House in 2022.’  (Note- we believe that with the appearance of the ‘new COVID-19 variant- Omicron or SARS CoV-2 just in time for the start of a new election cycle, lockdowns and restrictions will return as will an emphasis on VOTE BY MAIL.  Mark our words).  Finally, Republican senators continue speaking out against the communist, Dr. Saule T. Omarova, that crazy Joe Biden is trying to make the comptroller of U.S. currency.
  15. 2021 Thursday N: Economic News- In economic news with emphasis on future trends, a new poll says that far fewer Americans will be buying Christmas gifts this year which means, the economy is not doing as well as the Biden regime would like us to believe.
  16. 2021 Thursday O: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I- Yet another Los Angeles, California, Nordstrom’s store has been overrun and looted by mobs of thugs.  As more mass robberies and lootings across California, the LAPD is seeking five suspects in the latest robberies.  On the other side of the nation in the Bronx, New York City, N.Y., two cops were shot and injured last night and outgoing Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, was shedding big crocodile tears on live TV.  We hope Eric Adams- the mayor-elect- will do a better job.  Elsewhere, after the Washington Post- aka WAPO- issued a tweet claiming, ‘an SUV killed the people in Waukesha, Wisconsin,’ and not POS low-level punk crook, Darrell Brooks Jr., they wisely deleted the tweet.  Morons.
  17. 2021 Thursday P: Sports News I- Three BIG NFL games today on Thanksgiving.  First, the Chicago Bears (4-7-0) beat the pathetic Detroit Lions (0-10-1) by a final score of 16-14.  Next, the Las Vegas Raiders 6-5-0) beat the Dallas Cowboys (7-4-0) in overtime by a final score of 36-33.  In the final game, the Buffalo Bills (7-4-0) delivered the struggling New Orleans Saints (5-6-0) a destabilizing loss of 31-6.  Elsewhere, after returning from suspension, the big dip-shit LeBron “Full of Fecal Matter” James had two Indiana Pacers fans ejected from courtside.  They must have hurt the imbecile’s feelings.  Wah, wah, wah!  The sad fact is that “Full of Fecal Matter” James was upset for the opposing team’s fans wanting the Lakers to lose, not the Pacers to win.  It is also interesting to note that the big punk- Mr. James- was suspended for punching another player from another team slam bang in his face.  Time to boot this POS out of the league.
  18. 2021 Thursday Q:  Even though the Biden regime has driven up the costs of virtually everything Americans enjoy at Thanksgiving, don’t let that feeble POS ruin yours.  Take your families out to eat this holiday of thanks.  Your family will thank you and we restaurant owners and operators will appreciate your business.  God bless you all!

The next album by guitar-slinger Richard Thompson was another monster album: “Rumor and Sigh” (May 17, 1991).  Joining the extremely talented guitarist/vocalist are (1) Jim Keltner on drums (2) Mickey Curry on drums (3) Alex Acuna (percussion), (4) Michael Froom (keyboards) (5) Jerry Scheff (basses) (6) John Kirkpatrick (accordions and concertinas), and loads of other people.  The first five songs- “Read About Love,” “I Feel So Good,” “I Misunderstood,” “Gray Walls,” and “You Dream Too Much” grab the listener by the ears and doesn’t let ago until the closing notes of “Psycho Street.”  This is a fine album; we encourage everyone to seek out and to add to their ever-growing collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.
