Hamas claims to have captured a ‘killer Israeli dolphin spy.’ That sounds like something the asinine Iranians would claim. Still, we feel compassion for the POW as the Hamas scum are most likely torturing the poor creature, trying to get it to divulge knowledge on other ‘Israeli plots’ against the peace-loving fecal matter that makes up the ranks of Hamas.

Not much talk about the current stats on the border invasion but we have our own estimates…

  1. 2022 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 317,179,061 confirmed cases, +3,002,344, 5,529,693 confirmed deaths, +8,178 and 262,715,355 confirmed recoveries, +977,708. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 64,250,950 confirmed cases, UP 860,074 from yesterday’s reporting, 866,807 confirmed deaths, UP +2,911,[i] and 42,757,525 confirmed recoveries, UP 115,673. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]   
  2. 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 417,523 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 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 55,151 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 357 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.           
  3. 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: 6,311,853 confirmed cases, 77,594 confirmed deaths, and 6,234,259 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it). Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 4,925,709 confirmed cases, 62,819 confirmed deaths, and 3,652,510 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 153,540 confirmed cases, 1,110 confirmed deaths, and 152,430 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,013,857 confirmed cases, 10,181 confirmed deaths, and 350,118 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Diamond Princess Ship: they have 46 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 46 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   Tomorrow, back to the top!
  4. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,636,179 confirmed cases, 8,290 confirmed deaths, and 1,396,395 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the world- Laos, 112th country on the list: 121,436 cases of the virus, 464 confirmed death and 7,660 confirmed recoveries.[iv]    Note- Laos uses hydroxychloroquine to combat malaria- look at how good their numbers are.   
  5. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 36,290.32, UP 38.30 points (+0.11%). Next, the NASDAQ: 15,188.39 UP 34.94 points (+0.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,726.35, UP 13.28 points (+0.28%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $82.91 per barrel, +0.28 (+0.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,824.70 per troy oz., -2.60 (-0.14%) while the price of SILVER is $23.19 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.09%).  The price of PLATINUM is $975.60 per troy oz, -4.50 (-0.46%) while the price of COPPER is $4.58 per pound, 0.00 (-0.01%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,907.81 per troy oz., -2.60 (-0.14%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,900.00 per troy oz., -600.00 (-3.43%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,945.00 per USD/T, -25.00 (-0.84%). The price of COCOA is $2,559.00 per USD/T, -29.00 (-1.12%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,200.00 USD 1,000 board feet -29.00 (-1.12%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.36 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.87 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.36.    In Netherlands Antilles Guilder, one greenback equals 1.80 and in New Israeli Shekel, a buck equals 3.11 and in New Zealand Dollar, one dollar equals 1.46 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Wednesday E: 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 $4.651 per gallon, $3.203 in Florida, $4.341 in Hawaii, and $3.943 in Washington state.[viii]   Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Mississippi- $2.942.  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 96th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Cuba: $4.770 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,712,505,089,276 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 Philippines the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40,000,000,000 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. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Folks, our esteemed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the southern border debacle for 290 days now. Good to know.  Good to know, also, is that the last time she showed up to do the job Joe Biden bestowed upon her was 203 days ago.  Good to know she’s johnny-on-the-spot. Here are our estimates for the illegal alien invasion.  First, here is the cost for this day of caring for the unwelcome parasites: $1,241,303,371.  Next, here is the cost for this year combined with last year’s appalling total: $402,724,686,121.  Next, here is the estimated number of illegal aliens who have swarmed across the border and into the U.S. over the course of the past 12 days: 280,258.  Combined with last year’s total, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals in the U.S. as we speak: 42,522,272.  Our view is the correct view- every illegal alien entering the country takes jobs and resources away from American citizens. If the Biden regime won’t stop it, the citizens must. (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. 2022 Wednesday G: Health and Medical Alerts- A new report says that COVID-19 has proven to be the cause of a majority of law enforcement deaths- at all levels- across the country. Next, Project Veritas’ latest report culled from the files of DARPA show that Ivermectin works extremely well in combatting the COVID-19 virus as it prohibits the virus from replicating.  Yet, since the proven pharmaceutical is extremely cheap, leftists belittle it and will go after any physician prescribing it for off-label use.   In other positive news, U.S. cancer deaths are down 32-percent since 1991.
  9. 2022 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- House Republicans finally are getting off their butts and are seeking to block Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser’s unconstitutional and extremely authoritarian vaccine and mask mandates. Good for you.  In other authoritarian COVID-19 news, the province of Quebec, Canada, is floating a new tax for the unvaxxed. 
  10. 2022 Wednesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $56.64 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.40 (3) Merck & Company: $81.21 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $169.90 (5) Novavax: $130.17 (6) BioNTech: $220.87 (7) Moderna: $222.89.
  11. 2022 Wednesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $91.07 (2) General Dynamics: $211.93 (3) Boeing: $217.61 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.31 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $395.53.
  12. 2022 Wednesday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $33.98 (2) DuPont: $83.72 (3) Honeywell: $218.25 (4) 3M: $179.42 (5) Teijen: $1,483.00.
  13. 2022 Wednesday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $66.38 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $29.09 (3) Beyond Meat: $67.62.
  14. 2022 Wednesday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $143.46 (2) Lowe’s: $250.72 (3) Home Depot: $389.36 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $525.80 (5) Amazon: $3,304.14.
  15. 2022 Wednesday N: Joe Biden News I- As Democrats continue stumbling over one another in their efforts to subvert the nation’s elections system, Joe Biden is set to go to the U.S. Senate tomorrow to encourage Senate Democrats to topple the filibuster- something feeble Joe claims to be a relic from Jim Crow- so they can shove through the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act. Both of these corrupt ‘acts’ will forever change the way Americans vote by legalizing illegals, allowing the feds to gain control of every election at every level, and making it so a minute minority of far-left radicals can forever rule via a nomenklatura of elites while the rest of us toil like serfs. The Soviet Union had the same system which ain’t what Americans want or need.
  16. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- A new Politico poll says that Joe Biden is ‘the only unifier’ for the Democrats, yet his approval ratings remain extremely low. A new Quinnipiac Poll says that Joe’s dismal approval ratings are at a paltry 33-percent. Heading into the mid-term elections, unless the Democrats manage to steal elections nationwide in 10 months, their entire party could be destroyed, reduced to smoldering ashes on November 08.  Another nail in the Biden regime’s coffin is that inflation has skyrocketed the highest since 1982 and in less than a year under the Biden regime.  The final nail- for now- is that Hillary Clinton’s name continues coming up more and more in Democratic-Socialist circles for their 2024 candidate.  We have already prophesied this- she can smell the chum in the roiling, shark-infested waters.  Joe is senile and everyone HATES “Kooky Kamala,” even Democrats.
  17. 2022 Wednesday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- This totally corrupt, fraudulent, regime-approved committee now demands that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, come in and testify as to what he knew and when did he know it regarding the false flag operation run by the Democrats on January 06, 2021. In other related news, Quinnipiac Polling says that the nation is divided over the events of this built-up day. Everyone with half a brain understands what happened on this day as all one need do is to look at the available footage.  From Ray Epps instigating the entering of the Capitol Building from the night before to a man dressed in black who appears to be a fed pulling out a window so that others can enter the Capitol Building and then beating up someone who calls him a ‘fed,’ everyone knows what occurred on that day is an event created by nefarious sources within the federal government.[xi]
  18. 2022 Wednesday Q: Political News I- Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says that ‘mandated N95 masks should be made in America.’ Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell continues digging his own political grave as he sides with Senator Mike Rounds, RINO-ND, on his comments that the ‘2020 Elections were free of fraud of corruption.’ Uh, okay, Mitch, okay.
  19. 2022 Wednesday R: Political News II- Cleveland, Ohio’s newspaper, the Plain Dealer, is encouraging Senator Rob Portman, RINO, not to retire. The newspaper is begging him to remain because the GOP alternatives- according to them- are unacceptable (because they are pro-America First and pro-President Donald J. Trump).  Next, a new poll says that 58-percent of the American people believe that democracy is in danger of collapse.  IF only we had a fair and impartial press instead of one that more or less is the house organ for the Democratic-Socialist Party.
  20. 2022 Wednesday S: Moron News I- Hamas claims to have captured a ‘killer Israeli dolphin spy.’ That sounds like something the asinine Iranians would claim. Still, we feel compassion for the POW as the Hamas scum are most likely torturing the poor creature, trying to get it to divulge knowledge on other ‘Israeli plots’ against the peace-loving fecal matter that makes up the ranks of Hamas.  Perhaps the dolphin prisoner has information on plots against Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar?  Go on, Hamas, put burning pieces of bamboo under the dolphin’s fingernails.  Oh, wait, it’s a fish, fish don’t have fingernails.
  21. 2022 Wednesday T: First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3629 what with a $7 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 10, 33, 35, 39, 47, and Mega 22.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #936 with a jackpot of $38 million up for grabs: 12, 21, 22, 30, 33, and Power 24.  Out of 33,845 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $17,335 apiece.

The next album by guitar virtuosos, Richard Thompson, was a record he recorded in a small home studio with the use of his laptop computer: “Front Parlour Ballads” (August 16, 2005).  By this point, many music fans had passed him by seeking the newest pretty face or smart marketer.  Like Kim Simmonds (Savoy Brown), Leslie West (Mountain), Robin Trower (originally of Procol Harum), Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, and some others, Thompson maintained a strict following of veteran fans.  Although he did not expect to sell many albums, record sales actually became brisk which would propel him forward to future endeavors.  As always, the man writes songs with captivating licks, incredibly creative lyrics, and is joined by others to round out the sound.  He performs all instruments on this album with the exception of percussion instruments which friend, Debra Dobkin, performs.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you did.

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

Wednesday, January 12, 2022:


[i] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[ii] Here is the link: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xi] Speaking of Ray Epps, after his name came up yesterday during questioning of DOJ and FBI officials on Capitol Hill, the sham committee began spinning a yarn that they had already questioned Mr. Epps and cleared him of any wrongdoing.  Again, Mr. Epps is seen in numerous pieces of video exhorting Trump supporters to break the law and storm the Capitol.  Interesting to note, too, is that the committee trotted out the moron, Congressman Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, to defend Mr. Epps and not one of the all-too numerous Democrats on Madam Pelosi’s sham committee.

I have been in professional food service for a long, long time, moving into management back in 1973. At the time, I was the Food and Beverage Director at one of the hotels in Bakersfield, CA, located on Union Avenue. I was in my late thirties at the time. I am still working at one of the local hotels in the nearby town of Delano, CA, a place that has been my home for the past 10 years. Our city has experienced marvelous growth and is fast becoming a player in county politics. Chef Charles Smithenstein writes from Delano, California.
