b. The National Republican Congressional Committee- the NRCC- announced that in 2021, it raised a whopping $140 million, and the money continues pouring in. Next, the Republican National Committee- the RNC- has threatened to pull out of all future presidential debates. (Note to Ronna McDaniel- this should have occurred years ago but still, it’s never too late).

Stephen Foster Memorial Day

President Joseph R. Biden Jr. suffered major setbacks today- will this stop him or will he double down on the leftist agenda?

  1. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 320,646,788 confirmed cases, +3,467,061, 5,538,401 confirmed deaths, +8,708 and 263,997,564 confirmed recoveries, +1,282,229. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 65,210,117 confirmed cases, UP 959,167 from yesterday’s reporting, 869,111 confirmed deaths, UP +2,304,[i] and 42,909,776 confirmed recoveries, UP 152,251. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 419,827 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 57,455 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 358 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.           
  3. 2022 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: 6,517,211 confirmed cases, 77,797 confirmed deaths, and 6,439,414 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 4,980,826 confirmed cases, 63,081 confirmed deaths, and 3,653,538 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 156,532 confirmed cases, 1,114 confirmed deaths, and 155,418 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,029,495 confirmed cases, 10,220 confirmed deaths, and 350,282 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Texas: they have 5,301,709 confirmed cases, 77,294 confirmed deaths, and 4,485,775 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,695,512 confirmed cases, 8,293 confirmed deaths, and 1,427,996 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Cameroun, 114th country on the list: 109,666 cases of the virus, 1,853 confirmed death and 106,050 confirmed recoveries.[iv]  This is yet another example of an Equatorial African nation using hydroxychloroquine to combat malaria which results in a low number of COVID-19 deaths and a large number of recoveries.       
  5. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 36,113.62, DOWN 176.70 points (-0.49%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,806.81 DOWN 381.58 points (-2.51%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,659.03, DOWN 67.32 points (-1.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $81.72 per barrel, +0.40 (+0.49%).  The price of GOLD is $1,822.70 per troy oz., +1.30 (+0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $23.10 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.27%).  The price of PLATINUM is $969.10 per troy oz, -3.10 (-0.32%) while the price of COPPER is $4.50 per pound, -0.05 (-1.03%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,871.69 per troy oz., -16.04 (-0.85%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,400.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-2.96%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,946.00 per USD/T, -36.50 (-1.22%). The price of COCOA is $2,609.00 per USD/T, -50.00 (-1.95%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,234.80 USD 1,000 board feet -22.80 (-1.88%).[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 20.34.    In Nicaraguan Córdoba, one greenback equals 35.41 and in Nigerian Naira, a buck equals 410.00 and in Norwegian Krone, one dollar equals 8.70 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.651 per gallon, $3.217 in Florida, $4.343 in Hawaii, and $3.948 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Montana- $3.382.  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 97th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Morocco: $4.771 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,804,730,296,273 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 Australia the next largest holder of U.S. debt is All Others with $215,000,000,000 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 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Today is Day No. 291 since feeble Joe Biden put his ‘number two’- “Kooky Kamala” Harris in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 204 since the ‘ever-popular’ vice president has shown up to do the job.  We learned today that the Biden regime is hiring immigration attorneys at taxpayer expense to help the illegal aliens they are dumping in all 55 states and territories.  Time to round this human flotsam and jetsam of the Third World up and deport them back to whence the f**k they came.  In other illegal alien news, a new report says that 50,000 or more illegal aliens failed to show up for their court hearings after immigration courts sent notices to them.  Gee, don’t you just hate that?
  8. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II-  Here is the estimated cost of caring for these illegal aliens for a single day as of today: $1,344,745,318.  Next, here is the cost of caring for illegal aliens for 13 days added to the entire cost of caring for them last year: $404,069,431,439.  Imagine the good this money could do for the American people, it could be transformative for the good and if President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Vice President Kamala Harris were to secure the borders and redirect resources wasted on illegals to the American people, they would see their approval ratings skyrocket.  How about it?  Next, here is the estimated number of illegal aliens who have swarmed across the border into the United States these past 13 days: 303,612.  Finally, here is the combined number of illegals estimated to be in the country combined with last year’s tally: 425,825,884.
  9. 2022 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Thanks to mysterious, unseen forces, it appears that more U.S. diplomats in Europe have befallen the mystical Havana Syndrome.  Time to begin responding in kind, there, Joe Biden.  Speaking of a possible source of said Havana Syndrome, Vladimir Putin said today that he won’t rule out putting Russian military forces in Cuba and Venezuela.  Wow.  Watch the Chi-Coms put military assets in Mexico and Canada, double wow.  (Note- it appears that dingbat Joe Biden is selling the American people out as quickly as he and his regime can).
  10. 2022 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $55.53 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.10 (3) Merck & Company: $81.32 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $168.76 (5) Novavax: $112.38 (6) BioNTech: $202.99 (7) Moderna: $210.17.
  11. 2022 Thursday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $91.56 (2) General Dynamics: $211.37 (3) Boeing: $223.78 (4) Lockheed Martin: $365.18 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $397.16.
  12. 2022 Thursday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $34.28 (2) DuPont: $84.01 (3) Honeywell: $219.43 (4) 3M: $181.02 (5) Teijen: $1,482.00.
  13. 2022 Thursday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $66.84 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $23.27 (3) Beyond Meat: $70.83.
  14. 2022 Thursday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $145.47 (2) Lowe’s: $250.71 (3) Home Depot: $387.05 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $516.88 (5) Amazon: $3,224.28.
  15. 2022 Thursday N: Economic News- Things continue going from bad to worse for defeated Joe Biden.  The Producer Price Index- the PPI, a data metric first begun in 2010 to track changes in wholesaler prices- has jumped to 9.7-percent in 2021 and a whopping 0.02-percent in December alone, the highest since data collection began.  This represents a spike in the costs of ‘ingredients’ as well as in services and all of it has happened since Joe Biden stole the 2020 Presidential Election, uh, ‘won the 2020 Presidential Election.’  (Note- Karma is indeed a bitch and this is what happens when one steals an election and then brags about doing so).   In other dire, economic news, consumer prices have shot up 7-percent over the past 12 months thanks to the ineptitude of drooling Joe Biden.
  16. 2022 Thursday O: Joe Biden News I- Enfeebled Joe Biden is upset that communist China has canceled more than 70 flights between the communist regime and the United States, ostensibly due to COVID-19.   In other Joe Biden news, now that he has sworn that he will distribute 1 billion at-home COVID-19 tests to the American people, covering the costs of these ‘free tests’ could cripple numerous healthcare insurers.  Is this part of the plan?
  17. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- A new Quinnipiac Poll says that 53-percent of the American people DISAPPROVE of Joe Biden’s crumbling performance while only 33-percent ‘approve.’  John McLaughlin of McLaughlin Polling says the numbers are even worse than they look when one considers that the poll was weighted with just 24-percent Republicans.  Thus, it’s mostly Democrats slamming the illegitimate president.  Add to that the tragic fact that 57-percent of independents disapprove of Joe Biden’s performance and all this in a mere 358 days!  CAN SOMEONE PLEASE ASK PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP TO RETURN TO OFFICE?  NOW?  Next, the Washington Post awards fumbling Joe Biden four Pinocchio awards for his ongoing lies about his ‘civil rights arrests.’
  18. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I- The Biden regime has slapped some more sanctions on various North Korean bigwigs after their recent missile tests.  (Note- we bet the North Koreans are terrified of these ‘sanctions’). Our highly qualified Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken says such tests are ‘destabilizing to the region.’  Next, the Biden regime is going to dispatch 1,000 uniformed military healthcare workers to various Omicron hard-hit states to help healthcare workers care for the ill.  Some of the states receiving this help from the military are Ohio, Michigan, and New York.
  19. 2022 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany held a virtual meeting with the bogus January 06, 2021, House select committee trying to get to the bottom of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s FALSE FLAG OPERATION of just over a year ago.  Don’t comply with this sham committee, folks.   In other news regarding this bullshit committee, Paul Manafort says ‘beware of the parallels between what the Democratic-Socialists did to him and what the 01-06-2021 committee seeks to do his fellow Americans.’  A federal prosecutor right on cue has slapped the founder of the Oath Keepers- a patriotic, American group if ever one existed- Stewart Rhodes with the first seditious, conspiracy charges.  Up until now, NO one has been charged with any type of sedition or insurrection charges so stay tuned for further information.   Moving on, it’s interesting to note that this fraudulent committee continues trying to defend its legitimacy as more and more elected leaders and millions of Americans point out that NO Republicans were allowed to sit upon it other than two scalawags selected by “Mumbles” Pelosi: the much-detested “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney of Wyoming and Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger from Illinois.  NO one respects either of those two boot-licking losers.
  20. 2022 Thursday S: Political News I- Following lengthy negotiations with the regime of Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot, teachers’ unions have agreed to return to in-person teaching in the schools.  Chalk one up for “Frog Face.”  In other leftist news, Politico said of President Donald J. Trump that ‘if he runs in 2024, he wants a pro-Trump Senate.’  Uh, okay.  Are you saying that slobbering Joe Biden doesn’t want a pro-slobbering Joe Biden Senate as though there’s something wrong with wanting allies?  What a bunch of malarkey.
  21. 2022 Thursday T: Political News II- The National Republican Congressional Committee- the NRCC- announced that in 2021, it raised a whopping $140 million, and the money continues pouring in.  Next, the Republican National Committee- the RNC- has threatened to pull out of all future presidential debates.  (Note to Ronna McDaniel- this should have occurred years ago but still, it’s never too late).  On this topic, unpopular freshman Senator Mitt “RINO” Romney of Utah says the ‘RNC would be nuts to prohibit Republicans from participating in presidential debates.’  Shut up.  In other news, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, still will not let up on going after Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci by saying the good doctor knew exactly what the Chi-Coms were up to at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Speaking of the Xi Jinping never-ending fever, Dr. Mehmet Oz told Newsmax that ‘vaccine mandates DON’T work and that they build up bad will.’
  22. 2022 Thursday U: Political News III- Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler, R-MO 4th congressional district, has offered a bill that would stop ALL federal vaccine mandates.  Meanwhile, Congressman Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, blasted the nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi over members of the House having to wear N95 masks manufactured in communist China!  WTF?  We can’t make our own masks.   Elsewhere, Congressman Ralph Norman, R-SC 5th congressional district, says that Joe Biden’s inflation levels make President Jimmy Carter look like a ‘hero.’  Speaking of Joe Biden, he all but admits defeat on his attempt to forever grab the elections process in the United States after being rebuffed so publicly today.
  23. 2022 Thursday V: U.S. House of Representatives News I- Democrats in the House of  Representatives could barely contain themselves from wetting their undergarments as they passed both the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the For the People Act.  From there, they sent the election-thieving bills to the U.S. Senate where both imploded upon contact- even after dimwitted Joe Biden went over there and harangued his fellow Democratic-Socialists for being incapable of doing his bidding.  (Note- be sure to double down on calling them racists, bigots, haters, and lowlifes, saying stuff like this always motivates people to doing what you want- yeah, right).
  24. 2022 Thursday W: U.S. Senate News I- Lots happening in the U.S. Senate today.  First, the GOP was discussing the right to filibuster while slobbering Joe Biden was demanding its removal so he could get some wins via fudging the process that protects both political parties.  Elsewhere, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, has intimated he WON’T support Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell for another term as leader should the GOP retake the world’s greatest deliberative body in November.  (Note- this we have got to see).  Next, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, slammed Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer today over the leader’s hypocrisy when it comes to the filibuster.  Speaking of the filibuster, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, gave a spirited speech today in defense of the filibuster thus consigning Joe Biden’s attempts at stealing all future elections to the crapper.  Congratulations, senator.
  25. 2022 Thursday X: U.S. Supreme Court News I- The United States Supreme Court has driven the final nail into the coffin of Joe Biden’s OSHA vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 workers or more by declaring it unconstitutional, i.e., null and void, and tossing it on the garbage heap of history.  However, thanks to Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a Trump nominee, healthcare workers still must undergo the unconstitutional and authoritarian vaccines because SCOTUS did not toss them, too.  We believe that states must honor all religious exemption requests and we hope SCOTUS will reaffirm this.
  26. 2022 Thursday Y: Federal and State Court News- A federal judge has dismissed the Duke of York Prince Andrew’s request for a dismissal of the sexual assault case lodged against the perverted prince.  This would snowball into other problems for the flustered prince who is trying to evade any kind of punishment over his being a regular on the now-dead Jeffrey Epstein’s pedophile island.   Ah, well, Prince Andrew today renounced all royal patronages and military affiliations as the Queen says he must face his accusers’ charges as a private citizen.  Flipping deviate.
  27. 2022 Thursday Z: U.S. Military News- As the U.S. military continues booting servicemembers who refuse to undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the U.S. Army announces that it will increase enlistment bonuses because no one wishes to join the ranks.  (Note- don’t force America’s fighting-men-and-women to undergo vaccination with an experimental vaccine and don’t call them ‘extremists, racists, and bigots’ if they have differing views and opinions on social issues.   You might be able to get more recruits).
  28. 2022 Thursday AA: Crime and Punishment News- The Waukesha, Wisconsin, Christmas Parade murderer Darrell Brooks Jr. is facing an additional 71 charges atop those he already faces.   Elsewhere, Alec Baldwin- the man who shot two people and killed one of them on the set of his b-movie, “Rust,” last year still will not comply with subpoenas to hand over his telephone.  The always irascible actor killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins- killing her- and severely wounding director Joel Souza.  Next, California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS, has denied the assassin of Senator Robert F. Kennedy- Sirhan B. Sirhan- parole for the crime he committed back in 1968.  Many do not believe that Sirhan acted on his own, that he was a victim of federal government manipulation which seems to be a common thread in many such incidences.  People are only questioning these events now because the events of the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, have brought such events into the forefront for closer inspection.
  29. 2022 Thursday BB: Big Tech News- People continue growing more and more disenchanted with Jack “Rasputin” Dorsey’s Twitter as the platform allows an Iranian, animated video depicting the assassination of President Donald J. Trump to remain while removing all manner of conservative posts and videos.  Here is what we say about Twitter: F**K YOU.   (Time for someone to whack the Ayatollah Khamenei, i.e., ‘rock the casbah’…).  Meanwhile, a new report says that Russia hacked SolarWinds, and the Chi-Coms hacked the Microsoft Exchange.  Holy Moly.

The next release from guitar legend Richard Thompson was a five-CD box set: “RT- The Life and Times of Richard Thompson” (February 17, 2006).  This massive collection is broken into five separate portions featuring everything from classic cuts to amazing live renditions to album cuts upon which, he played as a guest or contributed to as a session musician.  One finds a nearly 170-page booklet that goes into great detail about the life and times of this phenomenal artist and priced at less than one hundred bucks, what the heck can you lose?  If you have yet to introduce the music of this lesser-known guitar virtuosos, well this is a glorious (and economical) way in which one can do it.  We hope you rush out to your nearest seller of classic rock music and add it to your collection.  You will be extremely glad you did, that we guarantee.
