Word has it that Chairman Xi asked President Putin to wait until AFTER the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. We have speculated that the war would begin either in the first week of January or during the Olympics because the Chi-Coms would have the world’s athletes as human shields.

Neil Young pulled his music from Spotify because they won’t dump Joe Rogan.  What the hell is wrong with these old, WOKE rockers?  Just STFU already…

  1. 2022 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 362,707,539 confirmed cases, +3,468,845, 5,644,180 confirmed deaths, +10,064 and 286,958,274 confirmed recoveries, +2,346,265. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 74,022,272 confirmed cases, UP 573,087 from yesterday’s reporting, 897,932 confirmed deaths, UP +3,052,[i] and 45,325,421 confirmed recoveries, UP 205,441. 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 448,648 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 85,296 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in ELEVEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 371 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: 7,762,579 confirmed cases, 79,271 confirmed deaths, and 7,683,308 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,468,583 confirmed cases, 64,007 confirmed deaths, and 3,671,004 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 208,887 confirmed cases, 1,146 confirmed deaths, and 207,741 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,213,763 confirmed cases, 10,552 confirmed deaths, and 372,624 confirmed recoveries (SAME NUMBERS).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Wisconsin: they have 1,486,054 confirmed cases, 12,112 confirmed deaths, and 1,473,942 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 2,599,456 confirmed cases, 8,513 confirmed deaths, and 1,865,189 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Eswatini, 129th country on the list: 68,205 cases of the virus, 1,371 confirmed death and 66,567 confirmed recoveries.[iv] Eswatini is yet another country using hydroxychloroquine to combat malaria and look at the numbers of deaths compared to the cases and numbers of recoveries.  What can we learn from this?                 
  5. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,168.09, DOWN 129.64 points (-0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,542.12 UP 2.82 points (+0.021%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,349.93, DOWN 6.52 points (-0.15%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $87.15 per barrel, +1.55 (+1.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,818.80 per troy oz., -33.70 (-1.82%) while the price of SILVER is $23.56 per troy ounce, -0.34 (-1.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,032.50 per troy oz, +7.00 (+0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, +0.01 (+0.16%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,332.34 per troy oz., +132.16 (+6.01%). The price of RHODIUM is $16,800.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.60%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,285,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,096.00 per USD/T, +4.00 (+0.13%). The price of ZINC is $3,629.00 per troy oz., +56.50 (+1.58%).   The price of COCOA is $2,502.00 per USD/T, -1.00 (-0.04%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,008.70 USD 1,000 board feet -45.00 (-4.27%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.32 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.89 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.74.    In Yemeni Rial, one greenback equals 249.95 and in Zimbabwean Dollar, a buck equals 361.90 and in Afghan Afghani, one dollar equals 103.02 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Wednesday 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 $4.638 per gallon, $3.324 in Florida, $4.374 in Hawaii, and $3.957 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Rhode Island- $3.352.  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 106th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Bulgaria: $5.157 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $29,879,414,685,795 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 Cayman Islands the next largest holder of U.S. debt is India with $216,000,000,000 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- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico catastrophe for 301 days and worse than that, she has not shown up to do the job in 215 days.  Shocking but not surprising for someone as unqualified as she is but still- the people of California are ecstatic to have made her the nation’s problem and no longer the Golden State’s.  By our calculations, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens as of today is $1,870,155,319.  Not good.  Next, the cost of caring for these ‘replacements’ for the past 371 days is about $406,403,028,712.  Next, over the course of the past 26 days, here is the estimated number of border crossers: 206,965.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE LOW ESTIMATE of illegals roaming the nation:  42,407,127.  Note- since the first inception of this blog back in 2009, we estimated at that time, the numbers of illegal trashing the country at between 35-50 million whereas now, we have revised that estimate upward of 85-125 million thanks to the incredible damage President Joseph R. Biden Jr. is doing to the country.  And they say the Replacement Theory does not exist.  Folks, it’s alive and well and at work as we speak.
  8. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II- At the invitation of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, Republican, 12 other state attorneys general are going to come and tour the southern border disaster.  Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson presented video tonight with federal employees at an airport discussing the nightly drop-offs of passenger airliners filled with illegal aliens being transported from small airports into the surrounding areas in the dead of night.  This occurs every night, night after night, in many airports.  Illegals are being sown into the American patchwork to transform our country from one in which everyone wants to come to, to one everyone is going to want to flee.
  9. 2022 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I- A sub variant of the mild Omicron strain of the COVID-19 virus has been detected in at least 20 U.S. states thus far.   Next, another of California’s embarrassments who now resides on the national stage- Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra- finds himself holding the short end of the stick- like Vice President Kamala Harris.  During the year in which, Joe Biden receives blame for being responsible for more COVID-19 deaths than his predecessor, everyone has noticed that Secretary Becerra- like U.S. Transportation Secretary “Mayor Pete” Buttigieg- has been missing in action.
  10. 2022 Wednesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $52.99 (2) AstraZeneca: $57.12 (3) Merck & Company: $79.14 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $168.34 (5) Novavax: $79.18 (6) BioNTech: $160.70 (7) Moderna: $154.96.
  11. 2022 Wednesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $88.88 (2) General Dynamics: $204.92 (3) Boeing: $194.21 (4) Lockheed Martin: $391.25 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $403.09.
  12. 2022 Wednesday K: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $31.78 (2) DuPont: $76.74 (3) Honeywell: $200.65 (4) 3M: $169.33 (5) Teijen: $1,444.00.
  13. 2022 Wednesday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.80 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $29.46 (3) Beyond Meat: $60.18.
  14. 2022 Wednesday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $135.74 (2) Lowe’s: $228.27 (3) Home Depot: $357.06 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $483.47 (5) Amazon: $2,777.45.
  15. 2022 Wednesday N: Economic News- Over the past 26 days, product prices skyrocketed at the fastest pace in 25 years.  Thank you, Joe Biden.  Something else we are being told is going to skyrocket is the prices of toilet paper.  We are told to cut back on our consumption of the hygienic product.  What the f**k is going on in our country?
  16. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden News I- Despite America’s borders being overrun by millions of illegal aliens, President Joe Biden is considering deploying America’s fighting men-and-women overseas to protect the borders of Ukraine which, by the way, the Ukrainians say are under no threat at the moment.  Still, Joe Biden promised to dispatch written responses to Vladimir Putin’s concerns regarding NATO on his doorstep.[xi]   (Note- we are not that old and stupid to remember a time when Russia had observer status at NATO whereas now, three consecutive presidents have driven them into the embracing arms of the Chi-Coms).  Interestingly enough, as we are on the cusp of yet another unnecessary war- something Democrats and RINOs seemingly love- the U.S. Navy cut loose another 23 sailors for having not gotten the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.
  17. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I- Now that the Internal Revenue Service says that online access will require facial recognition software, the American people are growing concerned over the use of third-party software which most likely will send the collected data to the…uh, Chi-Coms?  Who does not see a problem with that?   U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer was going to announce his retirement from the nation’s high court when he was ready but the White House rushed out an announcement so they could thump their WOKE chests by saying they are going to put a black woman on the court no matter her level of accomplishment.  We call this an ‘affirmative action hire.’  Good for you, Joe, good for you.  Racist from start to finish.   Still, the Dems’ strategy is to use Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s playbook and fast track the nomination of whomever the lucky affirmative action hire is so the GOP cannot do to her what they did to Brett Kavanaugh.
  18. 2022 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II- The Biden regime continues beating the kettle drums of war.  The U.S. Department of State is urging ALL U.S. citizens to leave Ukraine.  Now.  Or- if the Biden regime starts a war- leave before you are left behind.  Like Afghanistan.  Senator John Thune, R-SD, says that Vladimir Putin is ‘taking advantage of Joe Biden’s weaknesses.’  Amen.  President Donald J. Trump says that Joe Biden is ‘risking World War III’ in Ukraine.
  19. 2022 Wednesday R: Popular Culture News- After demanding Spotify either remove Joe Rogan’s money-making podcast or remove his music as a dumb-assed form of protest, Neil Young pulled his music from the streaming service.  Everyone LOVES Joe Rogan whereas Neil Young is becoming tiresome.  We love the old rockers, but we no longer give a f**k what they think or say.  Once Mick Jagger apologized for “Brown Sugar’s” lyrics and the Rolling Stones became WOKE and would no longer perform it, we lost interest.  This is what happens when one loses testosterone…
  20. 2022 Wednesday S: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3633 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 06, 07, 17, 31, 44, and Mega 12.  Out of 92,643 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $15,486 apiece.  The two tickets were sold at (1) Primm Valley Lotto in Nipton, CA 92364 and (2) Joe’s Liquor and Mini-Mart in Santa Clarita, CA 91387.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #942 with a jackpot of $91 million up for grabs: 04, 11, 38, 49, 69, and Power 16.  Out of 37,211 winning tickets, the highest winners in the Golden State was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $38,270.

Tuesday, January 26, 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…

Wednesday, January 26, 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)

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

[xi] Word has it that Chairman Xi asked President Putin to wait until AFTER the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.  We have speculated that the war would begin either in the first week of January or during the Olympics because the Chi-Coms would have the world’s athletes as human shields.  We expect that when World War III begins, Putin’s armored columns will burst across the border into the Ukraine, Chairman Xi’s ‘Mongol fleet’ will descend on Taiwan, Iran will commence crossing the Persian Gulf and overrunning the Arab kingdoms, Hezbollah and Hamas will begin attacking Israel, and Cuba, Venezuela, and North Korea will begin acting the fool.  All the while, Joe will be sitting in the White House basement spanking the wank, eating ice cream, and gibbering to himself like the senile old coot that he is, and the world will be consumed by the new Axis.  We are going to LOSE.  None of this- we repeat- NONE of this would ever have occurred if President Donald J. Trump were still in the White House.  Period.

I began my career working as a busboy in 1963, move to washing pots in 1965, became a chef's apprentice in 1969 and have been a career professional ever since. I am still involved in professional foodservice as a consultant for food and beverage professionals. Like everyone else who writes for the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, Bakersfield, California, street artist and graffiti guru, Simone, has done cartoon caricatures of me, which is my personal photo now. We must keep our personal identities confidential as in this world of political animosity and the fact that we own restaurants, which are dependent upon public visitation, has forced us to journey down this road. We hope you understand. Thank you. Chef Elvin C. McCardle writes from Ventura, CA. Chef Elvin C. McCardle is now a Conservative Republican!
