Illinois Senator Barack Obama wins the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia Democratic primaries which puts him in the lead over his closest rival, New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton. On the other side of the coin, Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, wins the GOP nominations in the same chunks of real estate. Republicans are not thrilled with Senator McCain; it is what it is. Elsewhere, Russia and the Ukraine settle a dispute over the debt owed by the latter to the former. The Ukraine owes money to Gazprom for deliveries of natural gas.

- 2015 Thursday: Ukraine and Russia negotiate a ceasefire with the support of Germany[x] and France; the agreement calls for an end to fighting, removal of large artillery from the sites of conflict, and greater independence for eastern Ukraine. Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate confirms Ashton Carter as the 25th U.S. Secretary of Defense.
- 2016 Friday: To the delight of climate change scammers everywhere, Fiji becomes the first nation to ratify the UN climate deal[xi], the one signed in Paris in December 2015. Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry announces that following a meeting of 17 foreign ministers from around the world in Munich, a ceasefire in Syria would be declared in one week, following the delivery of humanitarian supplies to the refugees huddling along the border with Turkey.
- 2017 Sunday: In Northern California, residents living around the Oroville Dam- 180,000- are ordered to immediately get the hell out as overflow from the spillways due to humongous rainfall threatens its stability and a possible collapse. Thankfully, the dam withstood the torrent of water. Elsewhere, the North Koreans fire an intercontinental ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan. Of course, this causes alarm around the region.
- 2018 Monday: Following widespread charges of allegations of sexual misconduct in Haiti and Chad, Oxfam deputy director Penny Laine Lawrence resigns the post of the British charity. She apologizes profusely. Great. Tell it to the victims. Meanwhile, trying to get things going, President Donald J. Trump sends his $4.4 trillion federal budget proposal for 2019 to the U.S. Congress. Meanwhile, the president meets with several governors and big city mayors so he can lay out his $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill to get the American people back to work and to repair and improve the crumbling infrastructure of the nation.
- 2019 Tuesday: After 200 hours of testimony in a federal courtroom, a jury finds Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman guilty of all 10 federal crimes with which, they charged him. Meanwhile, after a lengthy dispute with Greece, Macedonia changes its name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia. Elsewhere, much to the delight of Democrats in the United States, Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro tells a BBC reporter that U.S. President Donald J. Trump is a white supremacist who is actively ‘warmongering’ against his country and says that the “Ku Klux Klan is running the White House.” Now where could this ignorant POS have gotten these comments? The Democratic Party and their allies in the Fake News Media? We’d lay our money on this!
- 2020 Wednesday: As the coronavirus outbreak continues to worsen around the planet, Tonga forbids four cruise ships from docking while in Cambodia, the government there says it’s okay for the MS Westerdam to disembark more than 2,000 after several other nations in the region turned the cruise ship away. Elsewhere, all manner of other nations are canceling all manner of events and happenings out of fear of the rapidly spreading Wuhan Flu. Elsewhere, Democratic 2020 presidential candidate and former governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick suspends his brief campaign.
- 2021 Friday: Day 24 of the Biden Regime: the border policies of the Biden administration (or lack of them, we should say) are coming under increased fire as hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are flowing north through Mexico and attempting to storm the southern border. NO one is checking the dregs of the Third World for the infamous Chi-Vi. Good going, ‘Usurper Joe!’ Speaking of the Biden regime, his family is coming under increased fire from people on all side of the aisle over his claims that family members will have no place within his administration when in fact, they are enriching themselves like gorging leeches on a floundering swimmer in the Amazon River. Speaking of Joe Biden, he is attempting to blame his predecessor for his inability to roll out vaccines with which to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. You go, Joe, you go! Finally, Joe Biden announces he is going to permit in 25,000 refugees immediately (among whom we suspect will be foreign intelligence agents seeking to target U.S. citizens opposing their countries). Joe Biden also cuts off all emergency funding for the southern border wall.
- 2021 Friday A: Speaking of the Biden administration, a now capsizing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, D-NY, is deflecting criticism of his murder of the ill, the infirm, the disabled, and the mentally ill in rest homes onto the back of the Biden crew. Wow. How quickly the maggots turn! Speaking of New York Democrats, Dems across the state are being hammered with the tragic loss of life their inept at best and criminal at worst policies have done to the citizens of the Empire State. Regarding the Chinese Virus, more than 8 million Americans slipped into poverty in the second half of last year thanks to the Wuhan Flu. “Pro-China Joe” said he had a plan- where is the plan, Joe?
- 2021 Friday B: The Trump defense team is blasting major holes in the House managers’ flawed arguments showing film clips the Democrats edited to make Trump appear a criminal by showing the films in their entirety as well as innumerable clips of Democrats talking about violence, threatening violence, joking about violence (man, Kamala’s laugh is worse than Hillary’s and that is pretty bad, folks), and guaranteeing violence. Republicans have met with the defense team in preparation for the devastation coming the way of the Democrats in the U.S. Senate today. We contend it’s going to be extremely difficult for the RINOs to vote to convict ex-President Trump just as it will for several Democrats whose allegiance is to the Constitution of the United States and not to Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.
- 2021 Friday C: The People’s Republic of China bans BBC World News from within its borders. We thought you had nothing to hide, Chairman Xi? Meanwhile, Russia threatens to cut off ties with the European Union if they impose any additional economic sanctions upon the country over the arrest of Alexei Navalny and protesters favorable to him. That means natural gas supplies you get from the Russkies could be terminated. You probably miss Donald J. Trump by now, don’t you? Elsewhere, New Zealand announces plans to roll out vaccines for the Chi-Vi beginning next week. Finally, we learn today that the Biden regime’s energy policies favor foreign nations over the country he was supposedly elected to lead. First, loss of high-paying energy jobs to Canada and to China. Second, energy independence is thrown out the window in favor of importing oil from OPEC, Russia, Venezuela, and other places inimical to U.S. interests. Third and final, stifling U.S. energy production benefits Chairman Xi, Vladimir Putin, the Grand Ayatollah, Burisma, and Nicolas Maduro. Good going, Joe. Finally, “Pro-China Joe” is being blasted for repealing a Trump executive order that prohibited purchase of and installation of foreign energy equipment in the American power grid.
- 2021 Friday D: Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Democrat, signals she will oppose the Biden administration’s demand for a $15 per hour minimum wage. Meanwhile, in New Hampshire, a hand recount shows that in the 7th congressional district, a place in which, DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS MACHINES AND SMARTMATIC SOFTWARE WAS EMPLOYED, an average of 300 votes was deducted from every statewide or national Republican candidate and flipped to the Democrats. Yet, both of these disingenuous companies- Dominion and Smartmatic- swear there’s ‘nothing to see here.’ The entire 2020 election cycle is (ALLEGEDLY) marred by these two crap companies and their Democrat bosses. Elsewhere, the North Dakota Senate is considering a bill that prohibits trannys from participating in scholastic sports. (Note- Chef Elmer on Monday is going to make an argument that a third category of school sports should be created- Transsexual Sports. This would make both boys and girls competing in sports happy and it would acknowledge the greater increase of students who are confused about their sexual identity and who can then compete with one another fairly).
- 2021 Friday E: In a fit of outrage, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi forbids Representative Claudia Tenney, Republican- who just won NY-22 House race by 109 votes- from having her family present at her swearing in on Capitol Hill. Congresswoman Tenney’s son, a recent graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy and in uniform was deemed a “RISK” by the senile head of the House. What a national embarrassment. The Speaker has National Guard units all over Washington, D.C., and yet, she won’t permit a uniformed member from entering the House? What a disgrace. Next, a House committee plans to give U.S. airlines $14 billion in COVID-19 relief aid. Meanwhile, dating app Bumble surges in its IPO in its first day of trading. Elsewhere, L’Oréal sales shoot up to hit $95 billion in Q4 2020 due to a 62-percent spike in online sales. Sales in the People’s Republic of (Communist) China saw an increase of 27-percent. Finally, a judge declines to issue both a new warrant and a jacked-up bail amount for patriot Kyle Rittenhouse, accused of murdering two Antifa thugs who were trying to murder him. A clear case of SELF DEFENSE.
- 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 108,043,938 confirmed cases, +538,271, 2,377,988, confirmed deaths, +20,513, and 60,504,739 confirmed recoveries, +368,271. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,716,018 confirmed cases, up 176,801 from yesterday’s reporting, 483,695 confirmed deaths, UP 10,472, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House. NOTE- in the White House 24 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries. Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe. NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 154,300 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S. Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
- 2021 Friday 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: 3,460,320 confirmed cases, 46,002 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,370 confirmed cases, 425 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 329,170 confirmed cases, 4,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. Let us look at one other piece of the United States: New Jersey- currently, they have 740,016 confirmed cases, 22,393 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries. Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 718,746 confirmed cases, 5,304 confirmed deaths, and 651,522 confirmed recoveries.
- 2021 Friday H: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,748 cases, +14 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,292 confirmed recoveries, +825 from last week. This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T. When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’ Rodent-eating scum.
- 2021 Friday I: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,458.40, UP 27.70 points (+0.88%). Next, the NASDAQ: 13,095.47, UP 69.70 points (+0.50%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,934.83, UP 18.45 points (+0.47%). We reiterate what we mentioned last week: markets are UP because they believe ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden is going to borrow TRILLIONS from the Chi-Coms. We still predict that by June 2021, the triple whammy of a $15 minimum wage, ongoing pandemic politics, skyrocketing energy and food prices, and massive illegal aliens numbers are going to tank the economy worse than 1929. Bad economic times are on the horizon because the economy cannot handle multiple hits of Chi-Vi, a jacked-up minimum wage that is going to cost American workers jobs while allowing employers to hire ILLEGAL ALIENS under the table and providing them NO Obamacare. It is going to be extremely ugly, and we have a ‘president’ sitting around spanking the Toobin in the White House.
- 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,823.20 per troy oz., -3.60 (-0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $27.33 per troy ounce, +0.28 (+1.04%). The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.38 per troy oz, +18.70 (+1.51%) while the price of COPPER is $3.80 per pound, +0.01 (+0.30%). The price of PALLADIUM is $2,393.00 per troy oz, +39.50 (+1.68%). The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.73 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.44%). Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan. One-dollar U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin. Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.52 Russian rubles. In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.
- 2021 Friday K: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Drawing #1633: 05, 14, 24, 25, 27, and Mega 14. Out of 74,680 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $2,881,341.
- 2021 Friday L: Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says she ‘hopes that Joe Biden understands that the Chi-Coms are not our friends.’ This after “Pro-China Joe” schmoozed with Xi Jinping on the Chi-Coms earlier in the week, reportedly for two hours. Who believes this? Next, Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that in regard to the bogus impeachment trial occurring in the U.S. Senate, i.e., the Stalinist Show Trial Extraordinaire, “Trump’s lawyers have won.” We concur. Trump’s lawyers are rating higher performance marks today as their video presentation blew the Democrats’ highly produced and doctored video clips- provided to them by ANTIFA, no less, look like the steaming pile of fecal matter that it is. We expect many of these Democrats are going to lose their seats in next year’s Mid-Term Elections. We will work to make it so.
- 2021 Friday M: Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, his State Department has scheduled a ‘racism is America’s number one national security threat.’ For God’s sake, because when things get better and people are moving on, you pull us all back into the cesspool and dirty everyone, black, white, brown, red, yellow, and every shade in between. Stop it already! Elsewhere, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece tells him that ‘governors and mayors need $350 billion in Xi Jinping Bat Flu relief’ as without it, dimwits such as Gavin Newsom, Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Larry Hogan, and other Democrat and RINO putzes will go under and probably see their states flip from BLUE to RED. Finally, Jen Psaki says she suspended an aide for ‘one-week sans pay’ for having told an inquiring White House reporter asking about his relationship with a fellow journalist. Apparently, aide T. J. Ducklo told the female reporter, “I will destroy you for asking this question.” When Psaki was asked whether the president knew about it or not, she said, “NO. I acted on my own.” Joe Biden did say anyone belittling anyone in his administration would ‘be fired on the spot’ in a very Donald Trump-like moment.
- 2021 Friday N: Another Lincoln Project founder bites the dust: Steve Schmidt. All of these guys have problems and character flaws, covering up for pervert John Weaver who has been sleeping with 14-year-old boys. What the hell is wrong with these RINO sickos? More to come on this story, folks. We learn that $50 million of the $90 million received by these scumbags went to businesses associated with said scumbags. Once again, we have another self-enrichment scheme and lawsuits are piling up, soon to hit this bogus group of disgruntled losers. Wow. What will be the next shoe to drop? George Conway?
- 2021 Friday O: New York Attorney General Leticia James calls for a dismissal of the National Rifle Association’s Chapter 11 Bankruptcy claiming it’s in “bad faith.” Meanwhile, strong defender of free and fair elections, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton finds himself smeared with allegations of ‘trading favors in exchange for a home remodel and a job for his mistress.’ Sounds like something Democrats do. Moving on, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax a couple of things: first, the Trump impeachment trial is little more than a ‘joke.’ Next- and we have been expecting this although not as early as it’s come- Nikki Haley slams Trump, belittles him and says he’s not the ‘leader of the party.’ To this, Mr. Grenell dismisses her comments as nothing and says, ‘Trump is indeed the leader of the party.’ We expect that she- like other RINOs- will vie for the 2024 nomination of the GOP, expecting that once again, Republicans having no alternative will vote for ‘the lesser of two evils.’ Not so. No more. Nikki, find out at your own risk.
- 2021 Friday P: The World Health Organization now is backing away from its absolute denial of the Wuhan Virus coming out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. We guess they are feeling the heat. Speaking of the Chi-Coms’ malign influence, Disney (NO one should see the movie, “Mulan”) is remaining mum on the growing news of systemic rapes of Uighur Muslim women in the ‘paradise province’ of Xinjiang, western China, a place where every manufacturer lacking a conscience has slave labor making their products. This is where Disney filmed “Mulan.” The NBA, yep, they are total scum, and we are big proponents of the National Basketball Association relocating their entire operation to communist China, seeing as how they love the Chi-Coms as much as they do.
- 2021 Friday Q: Elsewhere, things continue going from bad to worse for New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo. Can we expect to see this POS in an orange jumpsuit anytime soon? Speaking of the notorious Beijing Bug sweeping the world, California is trying to correct its myriad mistakes and is begging for vaccines to arrive in the state. Governor Gavin Newsom is such an inept fool (he’s Nancy Pelosi’s beloved nephew) that there is nothing he can do to save himself. Instead of putting $4 billion into vaccine procurement, he’s putting it into the money-laundering California High-Speed Rail boondoggle. WTF?

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.
Friday, February 12, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:
WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO
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, February 12, 2022:
[i] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012. We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.
[ii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day. We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”
[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019. This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins. Please, look for them.
[iv] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected. We certainly will one day. Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.
[v] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.
[vi] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030. We hope you will remain vigilant.
[vii] 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. Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too. Perhaps one day we will.
[viii] Present the music of Adele one day? If we are still around in 15-20 years, we just might.
[ix] God created the neutron bomb for wiping out maggots like these scum. President Trump: LIGHT THEM UP!
[x] Does anyone ever question WHY Germany has become Russia’s bitch?
[xi] Climate change is a hoax, the way the Democrats and liberals around the world present it. The climate is always changing but the solar activity- abundance or lack of sunspots and solar flares- is the driving force and it changes the climate on every planet in our Solar System.
FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!
¡Tienes que irte, maldito Joe!
