59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020. What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?

  51. 2014 Monday: In West Virginia, 10 people underwent hospitalization and 300,000 people have been unable to use tap water for four days since 4-methylcyclohexane methanol, an industrial chemical, leaked into the Elk River.  Elsewhere, the Chi-Coms conduct the test of WU-14, a new hypersonic missile system, a system reported to have speeds of Mach 8 to Mach 12.

  53. 2016 Wednesday: The largest Powerball jackpot in history- $1.6 billion- was divided among three winners.  Elsewhere, in the Pakistani city of Quetta, angry jihadists carry out a suicide bombing on a polio center, killing at least 15 people, and wounding far too many others.  Ah, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes yet again.  Meanwhile, in Jalalabad, Afghanistan, ISIS thugs attack the Pakistani Consulate killing at least 9 people and wounding another 12 or more.  Finally, Iran frees 10 U.S. Navy sailors it took into custody when their two patrol boats ‘strayed into Iranian waters.’  No, they did not enter your waters, you scumbags.
  54. 2017 Friday: Turkish strongman Tayyip Recep Erdogan announces that Turkish forces will remain on the island of Cyprus for the rest of time.  They invaded the island during the 1970s and fought to displace the Greeks.  The island has been divided between the two countries ever since.  Speaking of thugs, for the first time the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons blasts Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and members of his regime for using chemical weapons on innocent civilians.
  55. 2018 Saturday: In the NFC Division Round, the Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Atlanta Falcons in a low-scoring affair by a score of 15-10.  In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots wipe out the Tennessee Titans with a final score of 35-14.  Meanwhile, thanks to Deep State resistance, a false alarm that warned of a ballistic missile headed for Hawaii sent the islands into a panic, with people abandoning cars on a highway and preparing to flee their homes; officials apologized and said the alert was sent when someone (obviously on purpose) hit the wrong button during a shift change.  So far, the feds have not identified the prick.
  56. 2019 Sunday: In the AFC Division Round, the New England Patriots pound the snot out the Los Angeles Chargers with a final score of 41-28.  In the NFC Division Round, the New Orleans Saints wallop the Philadelphia Eagles by a final score of 20-14, knocking Super Bowl LII champion Eagles out of the running.   Elsewhere, following insane elections in Venezuela in which, many people believe the President of the National Assembly Juan Guaidó won, Caracas police briefly detain him after he said he ‘was prepared to take power.’  This would create an international crisis.
  57. 2020 Monday: The people of Iran continue protesting their illegitimate government by calling for the ouster of the grand ayatollah, someone who should have been droned long ago.  Meanwhile, Sen. Cory “Creepy” Booker, D-NJ, becomes the fifteenth Democrat to leave the running for the 2020 Democratic nomination.  He does this because he has 0-percent support and cannot raise money.  Also, because the man is stranger than f**k and claims NOT to be gay.  Sure, Cory, sure.  Elsewhere, the U.S. expels 21 Royal Saudi Air Force pilots from the country following the shooting in Pensacola, Florida, which took the lives of American service personnel.  The Saudis were found to have jihadist sympathies.  Will we ever learn?
  58. 2021 Wednesday: Although many called for leniency, the feds executed Lisa Montgomery at its Terre Haute prison facility, the first woman executed in 67 years.  Next, the U.S. Supreme Court blocks mail delivery of the abortion drug during the Chi-Com-caused pandemic.  Meanwhile, Acting Attorney-General Rosen warns of violence both in Washington, D.C. on Inauguration Day as well as in all 50 states.  Finally, pot-smoking Mayor Bill Di Blasio of New York City says the city is ‘canceling $17 million in contracts with Donald J. Trump.’  Wow.
  59. 2021 Wednesday A: The wonderful government of Iran has passed a bill calling for the destruction of Israel by the year 2041 as well as for retribution for the POS Quds Force commander, Gen. Qassim Soleimani, whom the U.S. took out in a drone strike on New Year’s Day in 2020.  What better reason to nuke these carpet-making camel jockeys NOW before President Trump leaves office?  Moving on, we learn that ‘fewer than 10 scurrilous Republicans’ support the impeachment of President Donald J. Trump which is occurring now on Capitol Hill in the U.S. House of Representatives.  As the impeachment BS continues, Representative Matt Rosendale, R-Montana, says that Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, should be ‘stripped of her leadership role,’ something with which, we wholeheartedly agree.  Meanwhile, ‘President-elect Pro-China Joe’ Biden announces he will select another Obama-Biden alum- Samantha Power- to head USAID.  Next, the U.S. Senate announces confirmation hearings for incoming Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen beginning on January 19, the same day the Democrats want to impeach President Trump a second time.
  60. 2021 Wednesday B: Christopher Ruddy of Newsmax TV says that ‘in a strange way President-elect Joe Biden is listening to his outgoing predecessor President Donald J. Trump in that he is nominating what the country perceives to be moderates to work in his administration and keeping the ultra-left riffraff at arm’s length.’  Interesting point.  Speaking of the 45th president, a recent McLaughlin poll says Trump’s approval ratings have been holding at 49-percent, his highest since the election.  Meanwhile, the U.S. special envoy to South Korea Henry Harris will be leaving his post next week.  Elsewhere, Newt Gingrich says there is ‘enormous danger’ in the ability to dictate whether President Donald J. Trump (or anyone else for that matter) can seek the presidency ever again.’  Nope, times are changing for the worst, folks.  Finally, ever-traitorous “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, the current Senate majority leader, signals he will go along with the second impeachment of President Trump.  What a guy.
  61. 2021 Wednesday C: President Donald J. Trump’s EPA through its push to impose industry-backed regulations is a tactic by which, it can tie the hands of incoming President-elect Joe Biden’s hands when it comes to forcing Green New Deal BS on the American people.  This will allow industry to have a greater say in proceeding with projects than the federal government, which is good, extremely good.  Meanwhile, YouTube has suspended President Donald Trump’s channel on their site.  Censorship run amok yet again, folks.  Elsewhere, at the request of President-elect Joe Biden, Operation Warp Speed’s Dr. Moncef Slaoui has submitted his resignation letter.      
  62. 2021 Wednesday D: Please stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3525 with a jackpot of $11,000,000 up for grabs: 03, 17, 21, 27, 35, and Mega 05.  Out of 151,188 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $25,559 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at Riviera Foods in Kelseyville, CA 95451 and Shell in Irvine, CA 92606.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #811 with a jackpot of $550,000,000 at stake: 04, 19, 23, 25, 49, and Powerball 14.   Out of 424,484 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $2,768,497 apiece.  One winning ticket was sold at a Chevron in San Diego, CA 92111 and Paul’s Market in San Jose, CA 95112.
  63. 2021 Wednesday E: President Donald J. Trump has been impeached a second time what with 219 Democrats and 10 Republicans voting for and 197 Republicans voting against (232 for, 197 against).  What a disgrace for our country, a politically-motivated impeachment designed to prevent Donald J. Trump from running ever again for the White House.   One thing we have learned is that there is NOT enough support among Republicans for impeachment so the Senate might waffle on forging ahead with a trial.  The negative repercussions could be tremendous for BOTH sides.  Time for President Trump to release ALL UFO files, all JFK assassination files, and all files on the corruption and crookedness of the entire Biden Family.  Do it NOW, Mr. President, do it NOW before our enemies take advantage of our insane politics and light us up.  
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 92,240,036 confirmed cases, +856,492, 1,975,707, confirmed deaths, +18,955, and 50,922,412 confirmed recoveries, +384,517.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 23,009,789 confirmed cases, up 212,059 from yesterday’s reporting, 383,290 confirmed deaths, UP 4,270, and 9,989,455 confirmed recoveries, UP 73,884.
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,815,933 confirmed cases, 31,105 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,470 confirmed cases, 312 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 283,363 confirmed cases, 3,869 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Nebraska: currently, they have 177,883 confirmed cases, 1,847 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 510,063 confirmed cases, 3,771 confirmed deaths, and 429,929 confirmed recoveries. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,060.47, DOWN 8.22 points (-0.026%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,128.95, UP 56.52 points (+0.43%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,809.84, UP 8.65 points (+0.23%).  The price of GOLD is $1,847.40 per troy oz., -7.50 (-0.40%) while the price of SILVER is $25.36 per troy ounce, -0.207 (-0.81%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,105.40 per troy oz, -5.30 (-0.48%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.003 (+0.08%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,397.10 per troy oz, +20.90 (+0.88%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.79 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.23%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.83.
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: In other economic news, consumer prices rose by 0.4-percent.  December saw the largest increase in four months.  The U.S. Department of Labor said that excluding core prices- energy costs and food prices- consumer prices rose by 0.1-percent and just 1.6-percent over the past 12 months.  Rising oil and gas prices as well as increases in the cost of food driving the increase.  Meanwhile, the U.S. bans cotton and tomato imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China amid concerns over the appalling human rights abuses and the rampant use of Uighur slave labor.  Human Rights Watch says that 2020 was the WORST year for human rights abuses in that repressive totalitarian country since 1989.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms harvest organs from their prisoners and then sell them at astronomical prices around the globe.  Horrible. 
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: Elsewhere, the CEO of Parler says the social app may not return after being de-platformed by a cabal of BIG TECH social media and shadow authoritarians working from behind the scenes to squelch FREE SPEECH.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump gave a five-minute address from the Oval Office imploring Americans NOT to engage in violence even though rumors abound about what’s to come NEXT WEEK.  A poll conducted today says that a majority of Americans expect more violence to follow on the heels of the violence the nation witnessed last week.  Can anyone say, “CHI-COMS are behind this?” They are mad about criticism about Hong Kong as well as their use of slave labor, also U.S. reaching out to Taiwan, the REAL CHINA.
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: As everyone now knows, 10 Republicans voted against President Donald J. Trump on the impeachment charges of stirring up ‘an insurrection’ even though we know they know that was NOT the case.  Here are their names: (A) Rep. John Katko, NY (B) Liz Cheney, WY (C) Adam Kinzinger, IL (D) Fred Upton, MI (E) Jaime Herrera Beutler, WA (F) Peter Meijer, MI (G) Dan Newhouse, WA (H) Anthony Gonzalez, OH (I) Tom Rice, SC and (J) David Valadao, CA.  This last congressman is especially painful for those of us from California who contributed money to help Valadao take his seat back from carpetbagger T.J. Cox.  He then turns around and drives a shiv in the president.  I guess we will be coming for him in 2022.  Ingrate.  Meanwhile, Chef Vladimir in Washington state says both Newhouse and Beutler are proving to be disappointments.  Will someone please create a vaccine for RINO Republicanism?
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Famed bassist Tim Bogert died in San Diego, California, at age 76 from the effects of cancer.  He played with Vanilla Fudge[vi], Beck, Bogert & Appice[vii], Cactus[viii], and Vanilla Fudge again until he retired from touring in 2010 due to a horrible motorcycle accident.

Pictures #0001-1495


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.

Wednesday, January 13, 2021, Today in History:  

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…

[i] Within the next two decades, we hope to present the music of Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band.

[ii] We are unclear as to when we will celebrate the music of this long-lived group but when we do, you will be the first to know.

We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.

[iv] We have no idea when we will begin promoting the music of this fabled country artist but you can be sure we will promote Johnny Cash at some point during the next two decades.

[v] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The album, “The Yellow Submarine” appeared on Sunday, 27-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] We promoted the music of Vanilla Fudge beginning on Friday, 01-November-2013 through Friday, 15-November-2013.  We hope you will seek this band out and add their music to your growing collection.

[vii] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[viii] We fucked up when we failed to celebrate the music of the hard-rocking band, Cactus, at the same time we shared the music of Vanilla Fudge with you.  We hope to rectify that mistake sometime in the next 15 years.
