President Donald J. Trump had a massive crowd tonight in Arizona, estimated at between 55,000-65,000 people.  Can Joe Biden even draw 100th of that number?  (The answer is a resounding ‘NO’)

  1. 2022 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 326,786,853 confirmed cases, +2,376,192, 5,553,642 confirmed deaths, +5,934 and 266,432,374 confirmed recoveries, +1,071,324. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 66,664,283 confirmed cases, UP 454,748 from yesterday’s reporting, 873,149 confirmed deaths, UP +1,063,[i] and 43,059,089 confirmed recoveries, UP 39,165. We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]   
  2. 2022 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 423,865 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 61,493 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 360 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.  It is time to eject this senile pretender from office and back to his Delaware basement, there to watch “Matlock” reruns sitting in his rocker, slurping up his Campbell’s chicken noodle soup while Dr. Jill dabs the drool from his receding chin, and dressed in a shawl.  His wife should be doing time in prison for elder abuse.          
  3. 2022 Saturday 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: 6,682,041 confirmed cases, 77,999 confirmed deaths, and 6,604,402 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it). Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,089,226 confirmed cases, 63,090 confirmed deaths, and 3,656,729 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 166,068 confirmed cases, 1,123 confirmed deaths, and 164,965 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,046,777 confirmed cases, 10,294 confirmed deaths, and 350,434 confirmed recoveries (thanks to their slope-headed, dimwitted governor, Jay “Palooka” Inslee, these people go dark on the f**king weekends- F**K him).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Illinois: they have 5,589,640 confirmed cases, 32,532 confirmed deaths, and 1,863,598 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Saturday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,773,636 confirmed cases, 8,304 confirmed deaths, and 1,492,260 confirmed recoveries (somewhat the same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the world- COMMUNIST CHINA- here’s the laugh of the day, 116th country on the list: 104,864 cases of the virus, 4,636 confirmed death and 96,767 confirmed recoveries.[iv]  We are sorry to say this, but the civilized nations of the world must band together and destroy the Chi-Coms.  Dog-eating filth that they are as they and they alone are responsible for all the death and destruction.          
  5. 2022 Saturday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,911.81, DOWN 201.81 points (-0.56%). Next, the NASDAQ: 14,893.75 UP 86.94 points (+0.59%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,662.85, UP 3.82 points (+0.082%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $84.27 per barrel, +2.15 (+2.62%).  The price of GOLD is $1,817.30 per troy oz., -4.10 (-0.23%) while the price of SILVER is $22.99 per troy ounce, -0.17 (-0.74%).  The price of PLATINUM is $967.90 per troy oz, -4.30 (-0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $4.43 per pound, -0.12 (-2.53%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $1,878.56 per troy oz., -9.23 (-0.49%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,976.50 per USD/T, +24.50 (+0.83%). The price of COCOA is $2,659.00 per USD/T, +50.00 (+1.92%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,288.90 USD 1,000 board feet +59.80 (+4.87%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.35 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.29.    In Panamanian Balboa, one greenback equals 1.00 and in Papuan New Guinean Kina, a buck equals 3.42 and in Paraguayan Guarani, one dollar equals 6,969.54 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Saturday 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 $4.650 per gallon, $3.223 in Florida, $4.345 in Hawaii, and $3.951 in Washington state.[viii]   Let us look at one other portion of the United States: North Dakota- $3.126.  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 98th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- South Africa: $4.813 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,809,043,733,992 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 Japan the next largest holder of U.S. debt is the frigging Chi-Coms with $1,072,000,000,000 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 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Well, ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the unmitigated disaster along the U.S.-Mexico border for 292 days and even worse, has not shown up to do a single day’s work in 205 days. Amazing what one can get away with if one is a Democratic-Marxist.  Okay, here are the figures we estimate for the illegal alien invasion.  Here is the cost of caring for the invading Third World riffraff for this day alone: $1,438,581,022.  Next, here is the number combined with last year’s number for an appalling amount of money being thrown away by the Biden regime: $405,611,454,408.  Can you imagine the good this money could do for the American people and not this garbage sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats?  Next, here is the number of estimated illegal aliens who have flooded into our country for the past 15 days: 350,320.  Fourth and final, here is today’s number combined with last year’s grand total: 42,871,035.  Remember, since this blog’s inception back in 2009, we have estimated a far higher number.  Back then, we estimated the numbers to be between 35-to-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million.  Time to begin Operation Wetback II.[xi]
  8. 2022 Saturday G: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- In New South Wales, Australia, double-vaxxed hospitalizations exceed those for the un-vaxxed. It most certainly is a ‘pandemic of the vaxxed.’   We have heard from numerous sources that getting vaccinated for the Chi-Vi actually makes one more susceptible to contracting the ‘VID rather than repels it.  Isn’t this insane?  (Note- we believe Australia is using the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as a means of subjugating its citizens.  We have never seen a Western, English-speaking country go down this dark path.  This is what happens when a free country’s citizens surrender its guns).
  9. 2022 Saturday H: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump headlined a massive rally in Arizona this evening what with an estimated crowd size of between 55,000-65,000 and with a string of cars alongside the road going back 25 miles. Besides pointing out Joe Biden’s far-too-many failings as the ‘46th president,’ President Trump said the “American people want their country back.”  Also on the bill is gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake whom the crowd loves.
  10. 2022 Saturday I: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says that Joe Biden’s LOW approval ratings show just how weak (the feeble POS) is.’ Next, famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘neither the U.S. Supreme Court nor Joe Biden has the final say when it comes to vaccine law.’[xii]
  11. 2022 Saturday J: Joe Biden Regime News I- The Biden regime offers Ukraine ‘whatever support it needs’ following what many believe to have been a massive cyberattack out of Russia. (Note- watch senile Joe get us into a major shooting war on Russia’s turf.  Please, bring back President Donald J. Trump now).
  12. 2022 Saturday K: Political News I- A new report says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has $10.4 million in investments, which we believe are in pharmaceutical stocks. What have we been saying about the ‘money-go-round,’ it’s incestuous, these people feed at the public trough and become fabulously wealthy- this crap must stop.  Elsewhere, in New York City, prosecutors are walking out on the new D.A., George Soros-funded and appointed POS Alvin Bragg.   In other news, newly sworn-in Governor Glenn Youngkin, R-VA, began his time as Old Dominion’s governor with a slew of 11 executive actions, among them banning the teaching of Critical (Criminal) Race Theory.  Finally, former Barack Hussein Obama advisor Seth Andrew pleaded guilty to a scheme in which, he was going to steal $218,000 from a network of charter schools that he founded.  WTF?
  13. 2022 Saturday L: Big Tech News- Although Twitter claims to have banned an account for threatening to murder President Donald J. Trump, the account for the bloodthirsty, crazy POS Ayatollah Khamenei remains alive and well. We believe that when President Donald J. Trump returns, we need to drop one down the chimney and into the Grand Ayatollah’s house.  Light that POS up.  In other tech related news, Direct TV says it’s going to drop One America News network from its programming.  Direct TV, we are going to drop you because this is not right.  Just think what could happen to you when the GOP retakes power from one end of the country to the other?  You guys could be on the outs next.  (Note- Newsmax needs to get off its ass and defend OAN as they will be the next one facing this bullshit).
  14. 2022 Saturday M: Sports News I- In today’s first AFC Wild Card game between the Las Vegas Raiders and the home team, Cincinnati Bengals- who haven’t won a playoff game in 31 years, the Bengals won by a final score of 26-19. The Raiders (10-8-0) are going home for the remainder of the season while the Bengals (11-7-0) will move to the next round.  Next, the second game between the visiting New England Patriots and the home team Buffalo Bills did not go well for the visitors.  The final score was 47-17 which puts the record of Buffalo at 12-6-0 while that of the Pats is 10-8-0.  Congrats to the winners and the losers have something upon which to build for next year.
  15. 2022 Saturday N: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws- First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3630 what with a $8 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 26, 34, 42, 45, and Mega 10.  Out of 88,862 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 10 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,504 apiece. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #937 with a jackpot of $48 million up for grabs: 03, 18, 37, 51, 59, and Power 13.  Out of 53,465 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,822.

The next live effort by Fairport Convention was the wonderful “Off the Desk” (June 14, 2006). As always, these musical veterans deliver a powerful live show that sees them draw millions of fans to their music year after year.  People hunger for the OLD music because much of the new music- ahem, like Maroon Five, the Jonas Brothers, and other twits SUCKS. The band included virtuoso Andy Guttridge (acoustic guitars), Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 22 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

Friday, January 15, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

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…

Saturday, January 15, 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)

[iii] See United States COVID: 33,033,385 Cases and 589,110 Deaths – Worldometer (worldometers.info)..

[iv] We obtain our statistics for the coronavirus from: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[v] Commodities – Oil, Silver and Gold Prices – CNN Business– see this site for daily commodity information.

[vi] Commodities Prices – Spot – Futures (tradingeconomics.com) See this site for much of the economic information cobbled together at this blog.

[vii] (1) Currency Converter – Bing See this site for currency conversions.

[viii] AAA Gas Prices– See this site for nationwide daily gasoline averages.

[ix] Please see the following site for information on global gas prices: Gasoline prices around the world, 26-Apr-2021 | GlobalPetrolPrices.com

[x] U.S. National Debt Clock: Real Time (usdebtclock.org) See this site for the U.S. National Debt Clock.

[xi] Back in 1953-1954, the federal government rounded up every illegal alien in the country, stuffed them onto boxcars, buses, semi-trucks, empty airliners, and even cargo ships and deported them out of the country back to whence they came.  It’s time the U.S. embarks on a new crusade and begin deporting the scum making our streets dangerous, raping, robbing, and murdering American citizens.  NO other country in the world permits this.  We want people to come here legally, we want people who can help improve the lives of average Americans by making our country great again.  What good does it to import people who will be on the government dole for the remainder of their lives?  Democrats are the party of slavery and the illegals they are importing are their new, low-wage slaves.  This is not right nor is it moral and it sure as hell must stop.  NOW!  (Note- although this name may not be politically correct in this day and age, that was the name of the operation, and we will not sugarcoat history.  We must accept it for what it was.  You see, we cannot judge past people or eras by the views of today.  If we do, we, ourselves, will be judged- most likely harshly- in the future.  Still, we apologize for anyone whom we may have offended).

[xii] Speaking of Dr. Dershowitz, he asked a pertinent question today: “What if Prince Andrew is innocent?”  Look at how he is being thrown to the wolves, it’s crazy.  One is supposed to be innocent in the United States until proven guilty by a jury of one’s peers.

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.
