48. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2022, UPDATE A

I’m beginning to suspect that we are watching rope-a-dope what with Ukraine claiming Russian forces attacked a kindergarten, Russia withdrawing forces, and Joe Biden and members of his bogus regime braying the ‘attack is imminent, the attack is imminent, the attack is imminent. My view: it’s all crap to focus global attention on Ukraine so the BIG DOG- the Chi-Coms- can make their move…

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-NINETY-THREE OF THE BIDEN REGIME

48. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 2022, UPDATE A:

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY…

I’m beginning to suspect that we are watching rope-a-dope what with Ukraine claiming Russian forces attacked a kindergarten, Russia withdrawing forces, and Joe Biden and members of his bogus regime braying the ‘attack is imminent, the attack is imminent, the attack is imminent.  My view: it’s all crap to focus global attention on Ukraine so the BIG DOG- the Chi-Coms- can make their move…

  1. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 419,991,369 confirmed cases, +2,069,387, 5,880,547 confirmed deaths, +13,076 and 343,871,532 confirmed recoveries, +2,670,207. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 79,915,734 confirmed cases, UP 143,441 from yesterday’s reporting, 955,497 confirmed deaths, UP +3,453,[i] and 51,019,315 confirmed recoveries, UP 295,823 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 506,113 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 142,861 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 393 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: 8,874,746 confirmed cases, 83,786 confirmed deaths, and 8,790,960 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,813,847 confirmed cases, 68,572 confirmed deaths, and 3,777,713 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 233,155 confirmed cases, 1,290 confirmed deaths, and 231,865 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,410,658 confirmed cases, 11,522 confirmed deaths, and 1,399,285 confirmed recoveries (lazy bastards- it’s still mostly the weekend for this backward state).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Rhode Island: they have 353,776 confirmed cases, 3,397 confirmed deaths, and 350,379 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: 3,508,222 confirmed cases, 9,768 confirmed deaths, and 3,329,589 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Aruba, 154th place on the list: 33,568 cases of the virus, 198 confirmed death and 33,291 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,312.03, DOWN 622.24 points (-1.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,716.72 DOWN 407.38 points (-2.88%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,380.26, DOWN 94.75 points (-2.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $91.29 per barrel, -0.33 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,902.10 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $23.85 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.13%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,099.20 per troy oz, +6.50 (+0.59%) while the price of COPPER is $4.50 per pound, -0.02 (-0.41%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,381.24 per troy oz., +14.91 (+0.63%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,100.00 per troy oz., -250.00 (-1.36%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,510,000.00 per CNY/T, +25,000,000.00 (+1.68%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,302.00 per USD/T, +46.00 (+1.41%). The price of ZINC is $3,643.00 per USD/T., +59.00 (+1.65%).   The price of COCOA is $2,589.00 per USD/T, -22.00 (-0.84%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,294.00 USD 1,000 board feet -26.40 (-2.00%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.34 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.31.    In Iranian Rial, one greenback equals 42,000.00 and in Iraqi Dinar, a buck equals 1,458.52 and in Jamaican Dollar, one dollar equals 155.64 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 $4.725 per gallon, $3.508 in Florida, $4.503 in Hawaii, and $3.969 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: District of Columbia- $3.729.  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 128th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Czech Republic: $6.443 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,134,065,393,370 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 communist China the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom which holds $440,000,000,000 of U.S. 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 Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Strange things are occurring in eastern Ukraine.  A kindergarten was hit by a shell supposedly fired by the Russians.  It put a hole in the wall but injured no one.  We are beginning to believe that much of what we are seeing is political theater.  We believe that both Ukraine and Russia are trying to engineer a conflict that will suck in demented Joe Biden which will continue the degradation of the United States.  We are almost beginning to believe that Russia and Ukraine are acting in concert together to make it appear that a war is in the offing which is drawing ALL attention to an insignificant region of the world which will allow the Chi-Coms to launch the assault on Taiwan.   Anyhow, as the political theater continues, Russia expels the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.  Meanwhile, the U.N. Security Council supports ‘dialogue,’ but Moscow won’t provide guarantees of NO INVASION of Ukraine.   Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken says that ‘Russia is going to invade Ukraine in coming days.’  Anthony, we simply no longer believe it.  Nope, no way, nada, no, it’s not going to happen.
  8. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Today marks the 321st day since a vacant Joe Biden put “Kooky Kamala” Harris in control of the border fiasco and Day No. 235 since she arrived to do a phot op.  Now, she’s over hobnobbing in Europe trying to halt the ‘pending Russian invasion of Ukraine.’  We shall see what happens.  Okay, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 48 days is $300,225,600.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 413 days is $41,947,522,019.  Next, the number of illegals who have swarmed across the border the past 48 days stands around 392,425.  As for the estimated number of illegals currently living in the United States, the conservative low number of illegals is 42,636,059 whereas we suspect the number is closer to 85-to-100 million illegal aliens.   No wonder the United States is dying.
  9. 2022 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Now that Canadian dictator Justin Trudeau has given federal law enforcement the go-ahead to crack down, the fuzz are moving among the truckers snatching their kids and pets, handing out citations, and ordering them to stand down and vacate the occupied areas.  However, the truckers are standing firm which is why the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day SUPPORTS THE TRUCKERS, WE SUPPORT ALL TRUCKERS!  The truckers are not backing down.  Once the lower ranks of law enforcement and Canadian military join the ranks of the truckers and join in the ‘storming of the Bastille,’ so-to-speak, Justin Trudeau will have to seek asylum in communist China.  The Canadian PM is labeling his opponents NAZIS, even Jewish ones.  F**k him.  Trudeau is going full-blown Nicolae Ceausescu.
  10. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II- Speaking of the mess in Canada, Quebec- a province that might try to secede from the crumbling Canadian union if things don’t improve there and soon- has revealed its multi-phase plan with which to end ALL COVID-19 restrictions and mandates.  Remember: yesterday, Quebec joined with several other provinces and said they won’t adhere to Justin Trudeau’s illegal orders.   In other regions of the world, law enforcement in New Zealand continues trying to crush nonviolent, peaceful, anti-vax and anti-mask mandate citizens who have clogged their streets.  The government is nonplussed in its attempt to break up protesters who won’t abandon the streets to their fascist government.
  11. 2022 Thursday J: Foreign News-Overseas News III- As inflation hammers the European Union, citizens of France are having to find ways with which, they can continue living their lives all the while prices for everything continue skyrocketing.   Next, Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame says he and his company will once again try to find another avenue by which they can get pillows to the Canadian truckers who are living in their truck’s sleeping quarters.  Yesterday, Lindell tried to bring in a massive load of bedding and pillows and the Canuck government stopped them at the border.  In protest of Canada’s harsh, illegal measures, protesters have gathered in the thousands outside the Canadian embassy in New York City to protest the fascist goings-on of Ottawa in its war against its own people.
  12. 2022 Thursday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $48.91 (2) AstraZeneca: $60.99 (3) Merck & Company: $76.36 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $166.15 (5) Novavax: $83.44 (6) BioNTech: $157.36 (7) Moderna: $146.36.  The CEO of Pfizer says the pandemic is almost over and that the next strain to hit the world most likely will be weaker than the Omicron variant.
  13. 2022 Thursday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $94.36 (2) General Dynamics: $214.40 (3) Boeing: $213.56 (4) Lockheed Martin: $388.77 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $397.88.
  14. 2022 Thursday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.55 (2) DuPont: $79.73 (3) Honeywell: $184.59 (4) 3M: $148.63 (5) Teijen: $1,421.00.
  15. 2022 Thursday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.84 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $32.32 (3) Beyond Meat: $56.21.
  16. 2022 Thursday O: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $138.93 (2) Lowe’s: $223.79 (3) Home Depot: $347.77 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $515.01 (5) Amazon: $3,093.05
  17. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I- The U.S. Department of Justice is suing the state of Missouri over new laws that limit federal firearms seizures.   Next, ‘red on the head like the dick on a dog mob mouthpiece’ Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that ‘Joe Biden won’t be swayed by political pressure in finding the replacement for outgoing U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.’  We have already heard and have reported that despite what the regime says about Joe ‘working really hard to narrow down his potential nominees,’ that he has done NOTHING.  He has not looked at one potential nominee which means he is sitting down in the basement of the White House pulling a Toobin while he watches reruns of ‘Columbo.’  What a national embarrassment, what a national disgrace. 
  18. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II- Thumping its chest like the regime does daily, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland says the DOJ is going to pursue those getting fat off the supply chain crisis.  We bet they won’t go after the vaccine-makers who are making massive amounts of cash.  Go after them first, for Christ’s sake.  Oh, wait, they are sending massive donations to political campaigns of elected Democrats and RINO Republicans.
  19. 2022 Thursday R: Political News I- Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, has motioned that he may hold up the Ukraine support resolution.   Next, Congressman Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, said it might be beneficial if President Donald J. Trump would stop harping on the 2020 Presidential Election.  Say what, Congressman Carter?   Moving on, Congressman Chris Stewart, R-UT 2nd congressional district, says ‘threatening to arm the resistance in Ukraine might halt Vladimir Putin’s ‘impending’ invasion.   Meanwhile, House Republicans are standing strong against the Democrats’ insane push to get rid of the debt ceiling so they can continue borrowing money from the Chi-Coms and then continuing to spend it.  This is insane, the Democrats must be scooped up and sent to insane asylums around the country for immediate treatment.   (When the GOP reclaims power, they must cancel all debts owed to the Chi-Coms as payback for inflicting the Chi-Vi on the entire world).
  20. 2022 Thursday S: Political News II- Organizers of the U.S. Trucker Freedom Convoy say the trucks will commence rolling next Wednesday.  Excellent.  Where can we send money that won’t be snatched by the feds?   Next, under “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ leadership, Florida is pushing a bill through that will put $70 million in grants with which to bring fathers together with their kids or to provide mentors with which to help fatherless children.  This is amazing and once again, Democrats are going all apoplectic over the idea that someone thinks kids having fathers is a BAD THING.  It’s not, it’s great.
  21. 2022 Thursday T: Political News III- In California, approval ratings for big dog Democrats like “Kooky Kamala” Harris- Willie Brown’s long-time paramour which is why she has risen all the way from NOTHING to the ‘vice president of the United States- and doddering Senator Diane “Di-Fi” Feinstein have dropped to low, low approval ratings.  Astute political observers can smell the change in the air and it’s highly possible that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom may not survive his re-election bid.   In other political news, after U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd congressional district, remained mum on whether he supported Congresswoman “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large District, President Donald J. Trump leveled some much-deserved criticism at the RINO Republican.  This led to the possible House speaker’s support of “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney’s opponent, Harriet Hageman, after he endorsed Cheney earlier.  Whoa.
  22. 2022 Thursday U: Political News IV- In other political news, as Democrats continue the scramble to shift the focus on the highly damaging John Durham report- one that is rapidly gathering steam- Republicans say they have ‘full confidence in the proceedings.’  Meanwhile, in the Empire State, an especially haggard-looking Hillary Rodham Clinton addressed the New York State Democratic Party Convention and laughed off the growing amount of evidence that shows beyond the shadow of a doubt that this corrupt, self-enriching political hack bears FULL RESPONSIBILITY for the sham, Trump-Russia collusion scam.   (Note- Hillary, you’ve got plenty of money, get a f**king face lift, you angry old bag).  Hilariously enough, outside the event, Hillary was met by a jeering crowd of several thousand people.  Good for them.  Add to this the fact that Congressman Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, says that ‘Hillary Clinton should face a Department of Justice and an FBI investigation for her criminal activities.’
  23. 2022 Thursday V: Political News V- In a new poll, approval ratings for Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser have dropped 9 points in an extremely fleeting time.  Perhaps this is why the political hack is loosening the grip on the harsh COVID-19 measures that have kept the city in virtual lockdown for nearly two years?   In other political news related to the preceding section, famed legal scholar, attorney, and Constitutional scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax there’s ‘probable cause’ the Hillary Clinton campaign was involved in ‘dirty politics.’  Finally, President Donald J. Trump has endorsed Congresswoman Monica De La Cruz Hernandez, R-TX 15th congressional district, for another term in November.
  24. 2022 Thursday W: Political News VI- Senator Jon Thune, R-SD, said that ‘Joe Biden and NOT Vladimir Putin is responsible for skyrocketing gasoline prices.’   Next, once again, a stumbling old Joe Biden says what has now become a daily mantra for him: ‘every indication exists that Russia is preparing to invade Ukraine.’  So, the f**k what, Joe?  It’s not our problem other than that YOU and YOUR FAMILY are going to grow fat off the munitions sold to Kyiv as you do from everything else.  The old-time Mafiosi must be jealous.
  25. 2022 Thursday X: U.S. Senate News I- The U.S. Senate fails to pass the continuing resolution which will ban the funding of federal vaccine mandates.   Next, the U.S. Senate sent a bill to Joe Biden’s desk with which to avert an impending shutdown of the federal government.
  26. 2022 Thursday Y: Federal and State Court News- A court filing shows that 46,000 illegal aliens were released around the United States in January 2022.  In other court-related news, Hillary Clinton’s paid hack lawyer Michael Sussman is begging the courts to dismiss the charges levied against him by Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into Democratic Party-RINO-Canadian-Chi-Com Collusion in the 2020 Presidential Election.   In other court related news, a judge has agreed not to make the autopsy reports on Bob Saget available to the public which means he most likely was up to no good when he died (or was murdered).
  27. 2022 Thursday Z: Lawsuit and Legal News- After GiveSendGo was hacked by unknowns that released information on those who gave donations to Canada’s FREEDOM TRUCKERS, the Christian crowd-funding site is demanding both the Department of Justice and the FBI- aka the Joestapo- launch investigations into how this crime was committed and who did it.  Amazingly enough, even Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, said that ‘exposing small donors to the truckers was unconscionable.’  (She must be losing her re-election bid).    Meanwhile, a judge in New York says that President Donald J. Trump must testify before some sham fishing expedition launched by the Democrats in that extremely corrupt state.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Author: Chef Fritz Schlependrecht, ACF-CMC

I began my culinary career at age 10 working under my father, Chef Fritz, Sr., at his German restaurant in southern California. I moved to Bakersfield in 1982, went to work at one of the hotels, and remained there for the next 24 years prior to retiring. Now, I spend my time writing culinary articles for various magazines enjoying the good life. I’ve dedicated my entire lifetime to promoting the food service industry and in educating the young folks. Up-and-coming Bakersfield, California, street artist, Simone, created the following portrayals that you will see here and at the secondary blog over the course of the week. We have gone from ancient photos to facsimiles now due to the craziness infecting the greater society around us so you can say it is for security reasons. I have spent my entire life working in professional food service and am proud of that service. I currently work and live in the South Land.
