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 146,776 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 395 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

2021 Saturday D: Note- Chef Bea O’Malley- lifelong member of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day- says “IF Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has to use a ‘rap cartoon’ to appeal to us black folks to get the Chi-Vi vaccine, it’s all the more reason why ALL black folks should avoid this like a cross-burning in McKittrick, California, on a Friday night.”

  62. 2016 Saturday: In the South Carolina GOP Primary, Donald Trump wins with 32./5% of the vote.  In the Democratic Primary in Nevada, Hillary Clinton wins big with 52.6% of the vote.  She smoked Bernie Sanders good!  Finally, Gov. Jeb Bush suspends his bid to win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination on this date.  Say it ain’t so, Jeb!
  63. 2017 Monday: Government officials in the South Sudanese state of Unity declare a famine which affects 4.9 million people.  Meanwhile, Democrats and other assorted and sundry anti-Trumpers turn out in the streets, screaming, “NOT MY PRESIDENT!  NOT MY PRESIDENT!”  WTF is wrong with these people?  What’s wrong with them is the fact that they are communists, and many are members of various rent-a-mobs.  It is what it is.  Elsewhere, across the Atlantic in Great Britain, millions turn out in the streets to protest over there- coincidence?  Nope.  Still, the British government is considering canceling his upcoming state visit because they’ve bought into the bogus Trump-Russia collusion scam.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: During London Fashion Week, Queen Elizabeth II makes a surprise appearance.  Meanwhile, in the lovely socialist hellhole of Venezuela, the government of Nicolas Maduro announces the creation of its own virtual currency, the petro, to counteract their ongoing financial crisis.  Folks, nothing is going to help until the people overthrow the communist thugs destroying their country. 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: Sadly, Payless ShoeSource files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protections and announces plans to shutter all its stores in the United States.  Payless has been a staple of American retail for decades so it’s extremely sad to see them vanish.   Speaking of American business giants, Ford Motor Company announces it will stop selling trucks in South America.  Guess the Japanese are taking over down there.
  66. 2020 Thursday: Judge Amy Berman Jackson- an Obama judge- gave Roger Stone- friend and confidant of President Donald J. Trump a 40-month sentence for lying before Congress and a few misguided, unfortunate tweets.  The gist of all this is that conservatives cannot laugh or joke because liberals will charge them with heinous crimes and do everything possible to send them to prison, hopefully, to die there if possible.  Meanwhile, President Trump speaks to a crowd of freed prisoners and slams what is happening to Stone.  Originally, Stone faced a possible sentence of 7-9 years in prison for doing practically nothing but that is how things now are in the United States of America.  Meanwhile, Stone’s defense team is seeking a new trial seeing as how the foreman of the jury, Tomeka Hart, is a raving lunatic leftist who hates Trump and said numerous prejudicial things against Stone and Trump in social media and then lied to Judge Jackson, claiming she could be ‘impartial.’  We think this ho needs to go to prison herself.  Finally, fallout from the previous night’s NBC-TV Democratic debate shows Michael Bloomberg at the bottom of the Democratic cesspool following a dismal debate performance.  Sad.
  67. 2021 Saturday: Day 32 of the Biden Regime.  First, Senator Joe Manchin, D-West Virginia, says he plans to vote ‘NO’ on Joe Biden’s pick to head the White House Office of Management and Budget based on her past bigoted comments towards Republicans.   Next, following Newsmax’ Greg Kelly commenting on one of Joe Biden’s rescue dogs’ appearance, social media went berserk criticizing Mr. Kelly.  What Kelly said was true- the dog needs veterinarian care and a good bath.  ASAP.   Next, the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has him say, ‘things could be back to normal by 2022.’  F—k you, Joe, things are going to go back to normal NOW.  We are not going to put up with this bull crap much longer.  #OpenUpNow!  The earpiece also tells Joe Biden to ‘reassure the American people the vaccines are safe,’ the ones he claims did not exist prior to him becoming president.
  68. 2021 Saturday A: Republican Senator Tom Cotton proposes a bill with which to cut the Chi-Coms out of Hollywood.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms have infested Hollywood as you cannot miss Chi-Com companies in the opening credits anymore.   Meanwhile, United Airlines is trying to discover which one of its employees spilled the beans on the family of Ted Cruz’s recent vacation to Cancun, Mexico.  Like they care.  Next, a GOP group plans on using $25 million to enable Republicans to win back the House in 2022.  In other GOP news, Representative Madison Cawthorne tells Newsmax that the ‘Second Amendment is NOT about hunting but about having the ability to topple a tyrannical government.’  Elsewhere, Representative Devin Nunes, R-CA, also informs Newsmax that the ‘Dems think they’re in Hollywood and that the National Guard are extras on a filmset.’  It’s time for those troops to return home and for the fences to come down.  The ONLY reason the fences remain UP and the troops patrol the streets of Washington, D.C., is because they KNOW they did not win the 2020 Presidential Election.  Period.   Finally, U.S. Congressman Tom Reed, R-NY, says he’s eyeing a potential run against failed Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Hell, AOC could beat this piece of dog s**t hands down.
  69. 2021 Saturday B:  The storms in Texas have killed loads of people, many of whom may not be known for weeks what with people freezing to death because of lack of electricity, natural gas, and mishaps with propane and generator exhausts.  Add to that the fact that people WITH power are finding they have five-figure power bills.  Insane.  Joe Biden authorizes aid for Texas and mumbles something stupid about visiting Texas ‘sometime soon.’  Elsewhere, Ohio State University says it’s considering a debt-free degree.  Here is how you do it- instead of forcing students to take on massive quantities of debt for a degree, how about the schools take 6-percent of their annual income for- say- 30 years or until the debt is paid.  After all, everyone needs to earn money to pay bills.  Once the debt is paid, the former students can then donate time back to the universities to educate the next generation.  Saddling people with hundreds of thousands of dollars of school debt is insane and must stop while at the same time, universities have expenses, too.
  70. 2021 Saturday C: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 110,903,820 confirmed cases, +356,790, 2,456,069, confirmed deaths, +8,454, and 62,511,666 confirmed recoveries, +250,283.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,260,716 confirmed cases, up 84,288 from yesterday’s reporting, 500,833 confirmed deaths, UP 2,870, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge. 
  71. 2021 Saturday D: NOTE- in the White House 32 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 171,732 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 46,233 people, half of them in nursing homes.   Speaking of this fool who threatens ALL critics with ‘you’ll be sleeping with the fishes tonight,’ he still won’t apologize for the deaths his criminal policies caused.    Note- Chef Bea O’Malley- lifelong member of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day- says “IF Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has to use a ‘rap cartoon’ to appeal to us black folks to get the Chi-Vi vaccine, it’s all the more reason why ALL black folks should avoid this like a cross-burning in McKittrick, California, on a Friday night.”  Although she does not live in New York, the fact that this drooling mongoloid talks DOWN to black folks and encourages them to get the vaccine is enough reason to send every black and brown person to go running in the other direction.  Thank you, Bea.
  72. 2021 Saturday E: 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: 3,521,418 confirmed cases, 48,842 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 430 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 336,184 confirmed cases, 4,886 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Alabama.  Currently, they have 485,986 confirmed cases, 9,590 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 744,513 confirmed cases, 5,526 confirmed deaths, and 693,730 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Colombia.  Currently, they have  2.217,001 confirmed cases, 58,511 confirmed deaths, and 2,110,562 confirmed recoveries.   In other Beijing Bat Bug news, Pfizer seeks to store their vaccines at less frigid temperatures with which to ease coordination.
  73. 2021 Saturday F: In the Russian arctic, the Nornickel processing plant partially collapses killing three workers and wounding several others.   Speaking of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny loses his appeal and won’t be leaving prison anytime soon.  YOU should never have returned to the former USSR as the next time they poison you, you won’t be taken to Germany for treatment.  Elsewhere, a top official from the UN International Atomic Energy Agency- aka IAEA- is heading to Iran to visit with them regarding the jump-started JCPOA.  Meanwhile, a UN report says that Erik Prince violated an arms embargo on Libya’s rebel groups by shipping them weapons and mercenaries.   In other news, Joe Biden, and Canada’s Justin Trudeau plan to have a ‘virtual summit’ so they can discuss common shared interests between our two countries- like getting the Keystone XL Pipeline up and running again?  We can only hope.
  74. 2021 Saturday G: Having mentioned Texas’ energy grid collapse and the winter storms trashing the area, Representative August Pfluger, R-TX, says that ‘propping up solar and wind is what has caused problems in Texas.’  He also mentions that Joe Biden only approved disaster declaration for 77 of the 254 counties in the Lone Star State when in fact, the declaration of disaster should be for every county in the state.  We agree.  We have friends in Texas and all of them say things are extremely bad there.  Elsewhere, we learn that the left-wing U.S. Department of Justice is investigating seven police officers from five police departments across the country because these people happened to have been in Washington, D.C., on January 6, 2021.  Next, famed attorney and legal professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that the liberals have become ‘radical and intolerant.’  To us, this means they have become communists.  Time to fight back.  
  75. 2021 Saturday H: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball drawings.  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3536 with a prize of $22 million on the line: 02, 05, 08, 21, 45, and Mega 11.  Out of 118,110 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $39,709.  The winning ticket was sold at Dolce Expresso in San Jose, CA 95112.  Next, here are the results for tonight’s Powerball Drawing #822 with a $78 million prize on the line: 04, 08, 22, 32, 58, and Powerball 04.  Out of 59,166 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $29,272 apiece. 
  76. 2022 Sunday: Everyone knows the drill…

  55. 2020 Wednesday: Information appears that proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that multi-billionaire Michael “Mini-Mike” Bloomberg is indeed doing everything imaginable to buy the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination.  As of today, he has spent more than $400 million on network and cable TV channels as well as on radio.  What he has spent on Internet advertising is so far unknown.  Tonight, six candidates face off in the Democratic 2020 Primary Debate on NBC: Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, and former Mayor Bloomberg.  Absent are billionaire Tom Steyer and of course, Tulsi Gabbard, whom the Democrats do NOT want.  Meanwhile, in Chicago, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich gives a news conference on the porch of his home.  His sentence commuted to time served the day before by President Donald J.

Trump by their creation of a new bill- the “No Glory for Hate Act”- which will prohibit twice-impeached presidents from being celebrated, buried in Arlington National Cemetery, or having monuments and roads and the like named after them.  Wow.  Elsewhere, as the investigators investigate the Capitol Hill police officers, six of them are suspended with pay while another 35 are being scrutinized for having affiliations to President Donald J. Trump.  Kool-Aid-guzzling U.S. Army General Russell L. Honoré Ret. And chief inquisitor of the Antifa-infiltrated- and- lead Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, is digging posthaste to uncover the evildoers behind the appalling assault on Capitol Hill, only he’s looking at those with MAGA sympathies and not at the real instigators and proponents of what happened on the dreary day when Antifa and Black Lives Matter stormed the Capitol. 
  57. 2021 Friday A: Climate ‘czar’ John F. Kerry vows tough stance on all climate evildoers in the U.S. as the United States rejoins the Paris Climate Accord, yet another selling out of the United States to globalists.   Meanwhile, in the ‘post-COVID-19 world,’ the TSA announces plans to hire another 6,000 agents so the liberals can increase the numbers of their secret police at all airports across the nation.  Man, that Chi-Vi is permitting our government to skip down the totalitarian path.  Elsewhere, in the Free World of Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis, Republican, proposes sweeping election reforms in his state.   Finally, the Minneapolis Police Department are beefing up security both at the courthouse and around the city as the Derek Chauvin trial looms on the horizon. 
  58. 2021 Friday B: Boko Haram thugs in Niger kidnap 27 students from a boarding school and carry them off into the jungle.  The SOBS must be short on wives, again.  Next, the Kremlin warns the West to pull back from sanctions related to Alexei Navalny’s prison sentence, ‘or else.’  Speaking of thugs, the ‘paradise of Iran’ demands the U.S. repeal and remove ALL sanctions on their country imposed by President Donald J. Trump.  Don’t worry, grand ayatollah, the U.S. is going to rejoin the flawed nuclear deal the Obama-Biden administration participated in with your country.  Speaking of this deal, former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blasts the Biden-Harris administration for reentering this deal.  Under President Trump, the Iranians were on their knees begging for mercy.  Now, it’s back to business as usual. 
  59. 2021 Friday C: Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department imposes travel sanctions on 43 Belorussian officials and bigwigs over the actions of their corrupt government.  The Biden administration loves Iran but wants to punish Russia and Belorussia.  WTF?  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is attempting to rally ‘quad democracies’ to pushback against a belligerent communist China.  Why?  The Biden Family and many members of his administration LOVE the Chi-Coms.  Must be just for show.
  60. 2021 Friday D: RINO Senator Jon Thune says the ‘GOP is engaging in ‘cancel culture’ by going after the losers who voted to impeach President Donald J. Trump as well as the RINO senators who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump.’  Will these losers ever learn their flipping lessons?  It appears not.  The American people will have to show them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. begins admitting the first batch of illegal aliens begging for asylum into the country even though south Texas mayors are begging the federal government not to do this because they have no support with which, they can provide them.  Let ‘em freeze.   Elsewhere, the feds are pushing to kick the National Rifle Association’s top lawyer off the bankruptcy case.   Finally, good citizens are working alongside police in Oakland’s Chinatown to catch the thug or thugs who have been attacking Chinese citizens.  We still suspect when the culprit is caught, it will be another minority.  Speaking of the Chinese, Great Britain is welcoming in thousands of Hong Kong’s citizens who are escaping the crackdown by the thugs in Beijing.  In the next five years, London could welcome in as many as 300,000 people along with their dependents.
  61. 2021 Friday E: ERCOT says the catastrophic collapse of the power grid in Texas which led to massive blackouts would have occurred anyway even without the severe weather storm.  Still, the operators have gotten the power system up-and-running.  What the heck has happened to nuclear energy?  It’s safe, dependable, cheap, and lasts forever.  All we need do is to find a way to recycle used nuclear fuel so we can reuse it.   Elsewhere, Dolly Parton nixes the idea of putting a statue dedicated to her in the Tennessee State Capitol Building.  Who would want such an honor in this world of left-wing pansy cancel culture?  Revered today, torn down and defaced tomorrow.  Finally, doctors at Johns Hopkins University says, ‘herd immunity for the Chi-Com Flu can be achieved by April 2021.’
  62. 2021 Friday F: We learn that the Wuhan Institute of Virology has received U.S. money to study dangerous diseases including the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chinese Virus, millions of vaccines for this lab-engineered malady continue to linger in freezer facilities across the country.  Joe Biden says ‘NO such vaccine existed when he came into office’ but we know that a man who asks his wife, ‘where we’re at’ every day he awakens in the White House residence does not know very much, including that he and his wife received their vaccines ahead of his taking the oath of office.  Speaking of the Chi-Com pandemic, the Baby Evita- aka AOC, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez (birth name) is jumping on the anti-Andrew “Killer” Cuomo bandwagon and much like NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio, driving the dagger into the beleaguered Empire State governor.   Wow.  Just like piranha fish.  
  63. 2021 Friday G: The American Civil Liberties Union asks SCOTUS to declare all-male draft ‘unconstitutional.’  Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian files for divorce from entertainment mogul Kanye West.  Next, a day after its passage, a federal court strikes down South Carolina’s abortion bill, one that prohibits abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected.  The bill is designed to prohibit abortion chop shops such as Planned Parenthood from operating in minority communities where they murder mostly minority unborn children, sell the fetal body parts to scientists, Satanists, and other sick f**ks, and then donate money back to the Democratic Socialist Party of the United States.  WTF?  Meanwhile, Representative Mark Green says, ‘the Biden immigration plan is pretty flipping crazy.’  Amen.  Illegal alien hunting licenses, anyone?  Next, Representative Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO., to Newsmax TV: “Follow the Trump template to restore the economy.”   Finally, following Nikki Haley’s failed attempt to meet with President Donald J. Trump at Mar-A-Lago after BLASTING the 45th president and the man who made her ambassador to the United Nations, Senator Lindsey Graham has embarked on a peace mission to see the president.  Interesting Note- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has ordered all flags to fly at half-mast for Rush Limbaugh.
  64. 2021 Friday H: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 109,901,931 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,850.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, UP 2,253, 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 31 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 168,862 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  65. 2021 Friday I: 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: 3,514,246 confirmed cases, 48,411 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 428 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 335,340 confirmed cases, 4,868 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: South Carolina- currently, they have 497,937 confirmed cases, 8,213 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 741,934 confirmed cases, 5,509 confirmed deaths, and 688,184 confirmed recoveries.     
  66. 2021 Friday J: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,816 cases, +10 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,696 confirmed recoveries, +46 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.’  Maggot-eating scum.   NOTE- communists lie.  They ALWAYS LIE.  They lie about everything.  They cover up dastardly deeds like that POS moronic New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo and when threatened with exposure, they begin making threats.  Scumbags, all of them scumbags.
  67. 2021 Friday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,494.32, UP 0.98 points (+0.003%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,874.46, UP 9.11 points (+0.066%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,906.71, DOWN 7.26 points (-0.19%).  Although stocks are jumping up and down, we still anticipate the collapse of the U.S. economy as long as (1) businesses don’t reopen in BLUE states; (2) Joe Biden allows the Third World to flood into the United States; (3) economic idiots are running the show in the ‘Biden administration;’ and (4) fossil fuel production is collapsing thanks to Green New Deal policies being implemented by the frigging Democratic-Socialists.
  68. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,783.10 per troy oz., +5.70 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, +0.12 (+0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,282.20 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.84%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.01 (-0.17%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,379.80 per troy oz, +21.00 (+0.89%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.01 per barrel, -0.23 (-0.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000018 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.95 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.  Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1635 with a $20 million pot up for grabs.  Here are the numbers- 27, 32, 47, 50, 53, and Mega 04.  Out of 52,450 winning tickets, the highest winners were 36 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $421 apiece.
  69. 2022 Saturday: Stick around for the latest news…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Richard Thompson released his next studio album on September 14, 2018, the critically acclaimed “13 Rivers.”  Once a guitar warrior, always a guitar warrior, Thompson knows how to crank ‘em out and this one is as good as it gets  The album featured not only Richard on guitars and vocals but his current band consisting of Taras Prodaniuk (bass and vocals), Michael Jerome (drums and vocals), Jim Elkington (guitars, piano), and several others- including three backing vocalists- to round out the sound.  Fans adore this album just as we do which is why we encourage everyone to visit Amazon.com or whatever other site you do for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did, of that, we are convinced.  Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY FEBRUARY 19, 2022, BLOG POST #4,442

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Friday, February 19, 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 19, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the great California rock band, Spirit- and the music of its members- beginning on Monday, 18-June-2012 through Friday, 10-August-2012.  We hope you will seek this band out and add it to your growing collection of top-quality rock music. This included the music of Jo Jo Gunne.

[ii] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[iii] Not exactly sure when we will begin promoting the music of Black Sabbath but when we do we will definitely follow them with AC/DC, the wild and wooly and definitely demonic Australian rock band.

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] We began promoting the music of not only Traffic but also the Spencer Davis Group, Steve Winwood, Chris Wood, Jim Capaldi, and Dave Mason.  The presentation commenced on Monday, 30-November-2015 through Sunday, 20-March-2016.  This offering also included Blind Faith.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[vi] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

[vii] We began celebrating the music of Wishbone Ash beginning on Sunday, October 28, 2018 and continued it through Sunday, January 06, 2019.  From there, we covered the music of Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash beginning on January 07, 2019 through Sunday, January 13, 2019.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection of the BEST rock-and-roll music.  You will be glad you did.

[viii] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  On Tuesday, 18-January-2011, we promoted the album, “Rumours.”  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you. 

[ix] We look forward to sharing the music of AC/DC sometime within the next five years.  Remain vigilant for the day when we do.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

49. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2022, UPDATE A

This should surprise NO ONE: Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau is the FIRST NOMINEE in this year’s Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award. Unanimously selected by the chef-authors, early odds-making guarantees he will come in at the top of the list in January 2023 unless, of course, a far worse POS manages to edge him out…

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 269

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

49. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2022, UPDATE A:

This should surprise NO ONE: Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau is the FIRST NOMINEE in this year’s Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Unanimously selected by the chef-authors, early odds-making guarantees he will come in at the top of the list in January 2023 unless, of course, a far worse POS manages to edge him out…

  1. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 421,926,659 confirmed cases, +1,935,290, 5,891,718 confirmed deaths, +11,171 and 346,321,278 confirmed recoveries, +2,449,746. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 80,014,390 confirmed cases, UP 98,656 from yesterday’s reporting, 958,115 confirmed deaths, UP +2,618,[i] and 51,370,553 confirmed recoveries, UP 351,238 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 508,731 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 145,479 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 394 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Friday 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: 8,880,750 confirmed cases, 83,910 confirmed deaths, and 8,870,922 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,819,172 confirmed cases, 68,579 confirmed deaths, and 3,792,613 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 233,640 confirmed cases, 1,292 confirmed deaths, and 232,348 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,410,658 confirmed cases, 11,615 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., New Hampshire: they have 293,697 confirmed cases, 2,333 confirmed deaths, and 288,281 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,523,464 confirmed cases, 9,828 confirmed deaths, and 3,361,225 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Tanzania, 155th place on the list: 33,549 cases of the virus, 796 confirmed death and 32,753 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,079.18, DOWN 232.85 points (-0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,548.07 DOWN 168.65 points (-1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,348.87, DOWN 31.39 points (-0.72%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $91.66 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.11%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.80 per troy oz., -1.20 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $23.95 per troy ounce, +0.07 (+0.31%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,069.50 per troy oz, -23.20 (-2.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, -0.01 (-0.20%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,315.42 per troy oz., -50.91 (-2.15%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.55%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,510,000.00 per CNY/T, +25,000,000.00 (+1.68%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,298.00 per USD/T, +30.00 (+0.92%). The price of ZINC is $3,603.00 per USD/T., -3.00 (-0.08%).   The price of COCOA is $2,571.00 per USD/T, -18.00 (-0.70%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,265.10 USD 1,000 board feet -25.30 (-1.96%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.33 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.29.    In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 115.00 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71 and in Kazakhstani Tenge, one dollar equals 428.08 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Friday 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 $4.728 per gallon, $3.506 in Florida, $4.503 in Hawaii, and $3.973 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Delaware- $3.573.  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 129th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Uruguay: $6.453 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,136,116,395,744 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 United Kingdom the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland which holds $318,000,000,000 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 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine are evacuating civilians- mostly women, children, and seniors- from the region into Russia.  Global observers see this as yet another sign of impending war which Joe Biden said again this afternoon- with a glazed look in his dead eyes- is coming and coming soon.  Stop it, Joe, stop it, stop with banging the war drums.  Everyone knows you are craving a distraction, any distraction with which to save your crumbling illegitimate presidency.  We expect Uncle Joe is telling Volodymyr Zelensky to engineer a false flag operation that will draw the Russians across the border so Uncle Joe can then declare martial law here because of the war and to freeze the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.
  8. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- United States UN Ambassador Linda Greenfield-Thomas says that ‘observations point to a Russian invasion of Ukraine in coming days.   Next, the Biden regime says that ‘Russia hacked into Ukraine’s banking system.’  The head of the regime- senile Joe Biden- says he’s convinced that Vladimir Putin has decided to invade Ukraine.  Again, stop it, Joe, enough already.  IF Putin does invade the Ukraine, it’s because you, him, and Volodymyr Zelensky have all conspired to engineer this ‘wag the dog’ scenario as each one of you believes he can achieve something out of the chaos.  Joe Biden says booting Russia from the SWIFT banking system is unlikely in the opening round of sanctions the Bidenistas want to slap on the Russkies.
  9. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The globally celebrated U.S. ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been on the job for 322 days now.  She is visiting the border, although it’s not ours but that of Eastern Europe.  She has not visited the U.S. border in 236 days.  Here are the stats regarding the illegal alien invasion.  First, here’s the cost of caring for the illegals for the past 49 days: $306,480,300.00.  Shocking.  Next, here’s the cost of caring for the illegals now for the past 414 days: $41,953,776,7619.  Next, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed across the southern border since January 01, 2022: 405,742.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals roaming the land: 42,650,006.  We at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day genuinely believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-100 million illegals which is an incredibly depressing number.  Let’s round them up, force them to work off the costs of Uncle Sam caring for them, and then after 25 years’ hard labor per illegal, deport them back to whence the f**k they came.  Customs and Border Protection is now warning its agents of possible assassination attempts by Mexican drug cartel sicarios.
  10. 2022 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I- In Canada, federal law enforcement is arresting members of the FREEDOM TRUCKERS CONVOY and also is in the process of freezing bank accounts, confiscating private property, grabbing kids, pets, anything of value or of emotional importance to the peaceful protesters so as to crush the brave souls demanding freedom from their totalitarian government.   Speaking of this travesty, U.S. Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large congressional district, says the ‘freezing of donor accounts is deeply disturbing.’  Begin an investigation.

  16. 2022 Friday P: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump blasted lunatic Empire State Attorney General Letitia James’ insane investigation into all-things Donald J. Trump and Trump Family as being a travesty of justice as well as a witch hunt.  Next, the National Archives says that some of the documents it seized at the 45th president’s Mar-a-Lago estate were ‘classified.’  Ooh, the Deep State is ginning up yet another fraudulent investigation into the rightful president.
  17. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I- Approximately 45 GOP senators have sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland demanding he do everything imaginable to protect and to continue funding the probe headed by special counsel, John Durham.  The more information unfriendly to the Bidenistas hits the news, the less likely the Biden regime will allow it to reach the finish line.  Meanwhile, the Biden White House rebukes Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s visit to Moscow as a ‘show of solidarity.’  Wasn’t Mr. Bolsonaro in Donald J. Trump’s camp? 
  18. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II- Next, progressives in the federal government are attempting to push Joe Biden away from considering Judge Michelle Childs as the replacement for retiring U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.   In other news, Joe Biden signed a stopgap measure to keep the federal government up and running into mid-March.  How about a flipping budget already?   Meanwhile, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy says he’s ‘tested positive for the Chi-Vi.’  Get well soon, Mr. Surgeon General.
  19. 2022 Friday S: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- A U.S. judge has ordered the founder of the Oath Keepers imprisoned ahead of his trial for ‘sedition.’  (Note- the regime is copying what President Abraham Lincoln did during the Civil War in his fight to keep the Union together.  Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi aren’t ‘Abraham Lincoln.’  Another judge says that the January 6 political prisoners deserve credit for cooperation.   Next, a judge rejects President Donald J. Trump’s attempt to toss the January 06, 2021, incitement suit lodged against him but excuses Donald J. Trump Jr. and “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani. 
  20. 2022 Friday T: Special Counsel John Durham’s Probe: After Hillary Clinton’s attorney Michael Sussman began crying about the probe targeting him as one of the key go-betweens between Hillary Rodham Clinton and the creators of the phony Trump-Russia collusion scam by calling it, ‘political,’ the special counsel himself said he ‘never sought to politicize the investigation.’
  21. 2022 Friday U: Political News I- Senator Susan Collins, RINO-MN, says the ‘peaceful transfer of power is essential.’  She, of course, blames President Donald J. Trump for January 06, 2021, rather than the true culprits, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser, and various minions working within the Deep State.   Meanwhile, as Joe Biden’s support among Latino voters grows by the day, Republicans are seeking to capitalize on the ‘46th president’s’ self-inflicted loss. 
  22. 2022 Friday V: Political News II- Following the recall of three ultra-leftist goobers on the San Francisco schoolboard, the ousted president labeled it yet another example of- wait for it- get this- WHITE SUPREMACISM.  Wow.  Don’t you just hate that when it happens?  (It’s so much cow crap).    In other news, Maureen Steele told Newsmax that thousands are expected for the growing U.S. TRUCKER FREEDOM CONVOY preparing to set off next week.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is going to host a fund-raising event with Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, who is seeking to win the state’s U.S. Senate seat, the one from which, Senator Richard Shelby, RINO, is retiring.
  23. 2022 Friday W: U.S. Senate News I- The U.S. Senate confirms Christi A. Grimm to become the top watchdog at Health and Human Services, a $1.6 trillion department that oversees fraud, waste, and other chicaneries occurring within or about this very important agency.  It’s interesting to note that President Donald J. Trump at one time assailed Ms. Grimm.
  24. 2022 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News- Former Minnesota Police Officer Kim Potter receives a sentence of two years in prison and a $1,000 fine in the wrongful death of fleeing thug, Daunte Wright.   Next, New York City law enforcement is going to remove the homeless from the city’s subway system.  About flipping time.
  25. 2022 Friday Y: Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates- By unanimous agreement, the first addition to this year’s running for the Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award is Canada’s fledgling dictator, Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau.  This man deserves to win the award this year, the one in which, we laughingly select someone via the votes of the chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM as well as from the votes of our associated family members, friends, neighbors, employees, vendors, and delivery specialists.  The winner hilariously qualifies to be dragged down into the bowels of the infamous KGB prison in Moscow, the Lubyanka, where they get the Lavrentiy Beria ‘treatment,’ i.e., a fictitious bullet in the head as the former KGB chief used to personally dish out.  Of course, we never promote violence of any type, it’s just a humorous award based upon the history of the USSR.  There are three runner-up prizes- the Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award, the Red Banner Idols Award, and the Beijing Bat Bug Award (which is the ‘booby prize’), but we think “Little Xi” is going to be the big winner this year.
  26. 2022 Friday Z: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1739 what with a $64 million jackpot on the line: 06, 11, 50, 63, 68, and Mega 17.   Out of 54,847 winning tickets, the highest winners were 32 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $524 apiece.

49. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 2022

2021 Thursday I: For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Germany: currently, they have 2,362,352 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 67,074 confirmed deaths, and 2,153,918 confirmed recoveries. The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes where he killed at least 15,000-20,000 if not more. For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged. Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.

Trump sends out a series of Tweets in which, he expresses his displeasure on a variety of things.  Here is what he said in some of his messages: “If it was the GOAL of Russia to create discord, disruption and chaos within the U.S. then, with all of the Committee Hearings, Investigations and Party hatred, they have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. They are laughing their asses off in Moscow. Get smart America!”  He has every right to believe this as do tens of millions of Americans.
  57. 2019 Monday: Former Seattle Seahawks’ player T.J. Cunningham dies at age 46; he played safety.  Elsewhere, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, announces he is going to make another run at winning the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.  Meanwhile, at a massive rally in Florida, President Trump blasts Venezuelan thug leader Nicolas Maduro, calling on the military hierarchy to defect and go against the authoritarian former bus driver.  Finally, Senator Elizabeth Warren promises to reveal her universal childcare plan.  Yeah, right.  Always promising but seldom delivering.
  58. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump executes four pardons/commutations of sentence on this date: “Junk Bond King” Michael Milken, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, former San Francisco 49ers owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr., and former NYPD Commissioner Bernard “Bernie” Kerik.  Once again, President Trump has demonstrated his commitment to doing what is right in a U.S. Justice system gone mad.   Meanwhile, tomorrow night is the big debate, the first DNC one to feature multibillionaire Michael Bloomberg and Democrats are going berserk around the country fearful that this POS bigoted scumbag is trying to BUY the nomination and then the White House.
  59. 2021 Thursday: Day 30 of the Biden Regime.  First, in a magnanimous moment of charity, Bill Gates suggests that it might be ‘okay’ for Donald Trump to be allowed back onto social media platforms- what a guy.  Speaking of Big Tech, Facebook is screeching and crying over to having to pay for its news feeds in Australia.  The country passed a law in which social media and search engine platforms Downunder must reimburse the sources from whence the news emanates.  Of course, Facebook does not like this.  Stop the sobbing.  In other media news, we learn today that Antifa thug John “Jake” Sullivan, a POS Marxist who led the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, received $35,000 each from CNN and NBC for his photos of the death of Ashlii Babbitt on that horrendous day, one the Dems continue trying to tie to former President Donald J. Trump.  Speaking of that horrible day and its aftermath, General Russell L. Honoré- the hero of Hurricane Katrina and now, a Kool-Aid-guzzling hack hired by Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to investigate the left-wing Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, is saying all manner of crazy things.  First, the barbed wire and walls around the Capitol aren’t leaving anytime soon, next that most of the line officers are pro-Trumpers, and that various Republicans must be rounded up, expelled, or imprisoned.  What happened to this guy?  Fascism is coming to a town or city near YOU soon.
  60. 2021 Thursday A: Governor Gregg Abbott of Texas is overwhelmed by the collapse of his state’s power infrastructure.  The winter storm has virtually stopped ALL power generation.  No one ever thought something like this would happen to the Lone Star State and those of us who might have thought about moving there at some point are now reconsidering those thoughts.  Apparently, the Electrical Reliability Council of Texas- never anticipated a disaster such as what has millions in the dark, sans heat, sans electricity, sans water, and sans communication services,  Meanwhile, conservative Senator Ted Cruz of Texas was caught on film taking his family to Cancun, Mexico, to escape the winter freeze-for-all in his home state.   In other energy-winter news, Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards is asking the federal government for a natural disaster emergency declaration.
  61. 2021 Thursday B: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has told him to say he is going to establish a commission to look into reparations for slavery.  We went to our colleague Chef Bea O’Malley for his opinion on this matter and this is what she said: “NEVER gonna happen and here’s why- IF the Democrats were to give us black folks ‘reparations’ for something none of us have ever known (unless we came from the Third World), it would take one of their biggest RACISM ‘drums’ off the drum kit.  Thus, they never will do this because they would rather bang the drum for the rest of eternity than to actually address a ‘problem’ none of us living in this country have ever known.’  She also pointed out the obvious: they can’t even get us Chi-Vi relief checks so how the heck are they going to get us ‘reparations?’  The earpiece also told Joe Biden to look into how he can remove ALL student loan debt from the American people.  Our question: are the professors going to work for free or are we, the American people, going to have to foot this bill, too?  Dumb ass.
  62. 2021 Thursday C: House Financial Services Committee Chairperson Maxine Waters, D-CA, is busting the balls of CEOs from Robinhood and Reddit today over the GameStop debacle that saw the price of the stock driven sky high and then billions in short sales.   Of course, Democrats are upset they didn’t make some money off this amazingly successful strategy.   Meanwhile, the numbers of people murdered by New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo in his vast nursing home scandal and conspiracy, the one in which, he channeled COVID-19-infected people back into the places from whence they came and where their fellow patients were highly vulnerable to infection, illness, and death.  The number of nursing home deaths now sits at 19,000 dead and moron Cuomo MUST go to prison for this outrage.   Elsewhere around the country, the Los Angeles County School District has voted to remove ALL police from their school campuses and to seek $25,000 from the LAPD annual budget so they can concentrate on racial equity programs.   We bet YOU guys feel so good about yourselves, don’t you, wetting your panties we bet.  Finally, in California, the drive to recall Governor Gavin Newsom has far surpassed the necessary 1.5 million signatures which is why this POS nephew of Nancy Pelosi has signed a law that mandates the mailing of ballots to every registered voter (and illegal aliens) so as to ‘protect them from the Chinese Virus.  What does that say about mail-in ballots?
  63. 2021 Thursday D: Unemployment figures from last week far surpassed the week before, coming in at 861,000.  Thank you, ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden for being such a worthless POS that you are.  Your policies are killing the country.  Meanwhile, another POS politician- Congresswoman Liz Cheney, R-WY, under censure from the state’s GOP joins the loony tunes circus by saying, “There are white supremacists in both the GOP and the Democratic Party.”  WTF is wrong with YOU?  Another loser, Senator Susan Collins, RINO-Maine, says the ‘state’s GOP should focus on elections and not on (her) rebuke.’  Senator Collins, you MUST go.  Speaking of elections, RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel says the national GOP is working on securing elections across the country.  Finally, Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA, has gone to Mar-A-Lago to visit with President Donald J. Trump.   Speaking of the former president, 75-percent of Republicans want Mr. Trump to continue as a major guiding light of the GOP which does not bode well for the “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell RINO wing of the party. 
  64. 2021 Thursday E: The earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear has given him a NEW immigration plan- near immediate legalization of 11 million illegal aliens in the country (an extremely sparse number seeing as how various estimates have put the numbers closer to between 30-50 million shadow-dwellers).  Some Democrats are beginning to tremble because if illegals become immediate citizens, the economy is going to tank, America’s genuine citizens are going to suffer, and crime rates are going to skyrocket rather than plummet.  Still, no one will talk sense to Barack Hussein Obama- oops- Joe Biden, certainly no one within his administration.  Elsewhere, any answers about flawed ‘Joe Biden policies’ are answered by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki with ‘this one’s a woman, that one’s gay, that one is intersectional,’ like it’s somehow some sort of consolation that the person charged with fixing the problems are men who have become women or women who have become men, etc.  Enough with the identity politics already.   It almost makes us wish the Chi-Coms or the Russkies or the Taliban would take over so we could clean house on all this insanity.   In other Joe Biden news, the earpiece tells Usurper Joe to negate another Trump order, one that limited ‘climate change’ as a hashmark in federal reviews. 
  65. 2021 Thursday F: Here are particulars for the bill for the border swimmers and jumpers- 8 pathway to citizenship for ‘11’ (truly 30-50) million illegals.  Temporary status of five years plus three-year wait for citizenship.  The word, “illegal aliens” will be removed and ‘undocumented Democrats,’ oops, ‘undocumented persons will take its place as will be more immigration courts and judges plus $4 billion investment in Central America and infrastructure so illegals wanting to come here can begin the process there.  Effectively, NO one is going to be deported.  Thank you, Joe, thank you for destroying our country.
  66. 2021 Thursday G: Here are today’s stats for the Wuhan Flu, planet first: 109,901,391 confirmed cases, +288,143, 2,430,096, confirmed deaths, +8,615, and 61,879,542 confirmed recoveries, +203,350.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,100,922 confirmed cases, up 70,592 from yesterday’s reporting, 495,180 confirmed deaths, +2,253 from yesterday’s reporting, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as three weeks ago, going on four.  NOTE- in the White House 30 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 166,609 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?
  67. 2021 Thursday H: 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: 3,505,032 confirmed cases, 47,902 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 427 confirmed deaths (not updated in a week), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 334,284 confirmed cases, 4,824 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. real estate- Missouri: currently, they have 510,705 confirmed cases, 7,929 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 738,629 confirmed cases, 5,473 confirmed deaths, and 681,249 confirmed recoveries.    
  68. 2021 Thursday I: For the heck of it, let’s look at another country- Germany: currently, they have 2,362,352 confirmed cases of the dreaded Chi-Vi, 67,074 confirmed deaths, and 2,153,918 confirmed recoveries.   The AP reports that Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo sent at least 9,000 COVID-19-infected patients into New York nursing homes where he killed at least 15,000-20,000 if not more.  For this lowlife scumbag to do this, he did it for ONE THING and ONE THING ONLY: to eliminate the aged, the infirm, the chronically ill, and the mentally challenged.  Governor Cuomo must be put on trial for mass murder.  He will neither apologize nor will he admit his guilt.  This man must go to prison, his book should be canceled, and his Emmy stripped away.  Imagine if HE was a Republican.  The Democrats are slamming this piece of pond scum while the FBI is looking into his actions.  We also learned that Governor “Killer” Cuomo called Democrats in the state’s legislature and threatened them with repercussions.  F**k him.
  69. 2021 Thursday J:  IS THIS THE BEGINNING OF THE BIDEN DEPRESSION WE PREDICTED WOULD HAPPEN IN LATE SPRING/EARLY SUMMER?  We will keep our eyes on the crumbling stocks and commodities markets.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes but note- the Stock Market is now plummeting thanks to identity politics in the White House: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,493.34, DOWN 119.68 points (-0.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,865.36, DOWN 100.14 points (-0.72%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,913.97, DOWN 17.36 points (-0.44%).  The price of GOLD is $1,770.20 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.27%) while the price of SILVER is $26.89 per troy ounce, -0.19 (-0.69%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,274.20 per troy oz, -0.50 (-0.04%) while the price of COPPER is $3.90 per pound, 0.00 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,558.80 per troy oz, -10.90 (-0.06%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.68 per barrel, -0.84 (-1.39%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.30.  Next, $1.00 U.S. = 0.000019 Bitcoin (BTC).  One buck U.S. = 5.43 Brazilian Real.
  70. 2021 Thursday K: Former President Donald J. Trump’s approval ratings among all citizens now rests at 59-percent approval ratings.  Meanwhile, a U.S. Senate panel has scheduled February 23, 2021, as the date for holding a hearing on the SolarWinds hack.  Next, the CDC releases a report in which, it says there ‘is no credible evidence that foods can pass the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Panda Pandemic, or the Chi-Vi to other human beings.  Speaking of the ‘VID, vaccine trials with pregnant women set to begin soon so as to fill a major black hole in what’s known about the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s escaped disease.   Meanwhile, in 2020 during the Chi-Com Fever, greenhouse gas emissions fell by 9.2-percent.  Elsewhere, the Taliban sent a letter to feeble old Joe Biden informing him that ‘he had better stick to the timeline on withdrawing U.S. troops his predecessor negotiated with the terrorist group.’   Speaking of Donald Trump, President Donald J. Trump wistfully tells Newsmax ‘IF ONLY ‘Cocaine Mitch’ McConnell would hit back at Joe Biden and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer as hard as he hits me.’  That’s a hell of a statement.   Finally- as if no one did not know this, the U.S. is putting out feelers to rejoin the JCPOA, the corrupt agreement with which to prevent the Iranians from going nuclear.  Wow.
  71. 2021 Thursday L: NASA successfully landed their latest Mars Rover today.  This is their most advanced lander yet, one that will test for signs of ancient (and present) life as well as run experiments with which to convert carbon dioxide into oxygen.   There also is a plan to return rock and soil samples back to the Earth.  Gee, after what has happened with the Chi-Coms and their Panda Pandemic, is that not something we could do on, say, the moon?  Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives introduces a bill with which to ban all products from Xinjiang Province in western China in which, slave labor produced it.  The Chi-Coms would have to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that NO slave labor by Uighurs or other Muslims produced it.  Xinjiang Province produces much of the world’s cotton and cotton products and the Uighur and other religious minority slaves are the ones doing it. 
  72. 2021 Thursday M: Texas cold snap enters its sixth day as biggest energy-producing state in the United States contends with systemic power outrages that have killed more than 20 people and left 4 million Texans in the dark and in the cold.  Many are having to boil snow to obtain water because any water coming out of the pipes is not potable seeing as how water purification plants have shut down due to loss of power from windmills and solar farms.  IF anyone requires a glimpse of what a future under loony tunes Green New Deal legislation looks like, take a good, long look at Texas, the number one state with the biggest fossil fuel reserves.  Liberalism has infected a conservative government and left the citizens of the Lone Star state suffering because of it.   Whatever that bug-eyed dingbat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, we should do the exact flipping opposite of it.
  73. 2022 Friday: Stick around…

ENDNOTES:

Thursday, February 18, 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…


[i] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.

[ii] We began offering the music of the famed Flying Burrito Brothers on Sunday, 23-February-2014 through Thursday, 06-March-2014.  Please seek them out.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[iv] On Wednesday, 14-June-2017, we began presenting the music of the Guess Who and of its individual members- including Bachman-Turner Overdrive, Randy Bachman, Burton Cummings, and Bravebelt.  The entire discography ran from the above date through Sunday, 01-October-2017.  We hope you will check them out.

[v] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was mind-altering

[vi] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.

[vii] Millions of Catholics wish that Pope Francis would go home to Argentina and remain there.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

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…

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.

  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.

  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.

  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.

Everything is conducted in silence as much as possible and the Soviets are unaware of the breakout.

  54. 2014 Monday: Jimmy Fallon officially replaces Jay Leno in his first broadcast as host of “The Tonight Show.”  Elsewhere, the co-pilot of an Italian-bound Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 767 locked his captain out of the cockpit, commandeered the plane, then headed to Geneva, where he was arrested upon landing by Swiss authorities.  No one was injured during the mishap.
  55. 2015 Tuesday: According to Brainy History, Ukrainian forces leave the city of Debaltseve after rebels continue fighting despite a negotiated ceasefire; the rebels claim that the city, which connects the rebel-held corridor between Donetsk and Luhansk, was not included in the agreement.  Meanwhile, the nation’s 24th U.S. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel left office on this date.  A RINO Republican, he served under President Barack Obama from February 27, 2013, until today when he was relieved of command by his president.  As he left, his replacement- the 25th U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter- assumed his position and would serve under President Obama until January 20, 2017.  Interesting note- at the swearing in ceremony, Vice President Joe Biden was groping all over the new secretary’s wife.  
  56. 2016 Wednesday: After famed Filipino boxer Manny Pacquaio makes some comments about ‘gay people being worse than animals,’ Nike yanks a lucrative endorsement.  WTF?  The Cancel Culture strikes again.  Freedom of speech for ALL and not for some.  Elsewhere, a car bomb erupts in the streets of Ankara, Turkey, killing at least 28 passersby and wounding innumerable others.  Meanwhile, the White House announces that President Barack Obama will soon be visiting the communist island nation of Cuba within the next couple of weeks.
  57. 2017 Friday: The research journal, “GSA Today,” announces the discovery of a new, mostly underwater continent dubbed Zealandia in the South Pacific.   Meanwhile, in Spain, nearly 500 illegal migrants arriving from North Africa land on the beaches of the Iberian Peninsula and immediately begin scrambling into the interior of the country.  Elsewhere, in Maiduguri, Nigeria, up to seven suicide bombers blow themselves up attacking a camp for refugees.  Of course, it’s Boko Haram, members of the ‘so-called religion of peace.’
  58. 2018 Saturday: In north-eastern Nigeria in Konduga, three suicide bombers kill 18 people.  Ah, got to love the ‘religion of peace,’ no?  Elsewhere, in Swansea, United Kingdom, a 4.4-magnitude earthquake strikes the British Isles, the strongest in a decade.
  59. 2019 Sunday: In the streets of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, thousands protest in the streets over government corruption and inflation.  What else is new?  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is facing massive pushback from Democrats and RINO Republicans alike following his Friday declaration of a National Emergency along the southern border.  He did this as Congress refuses him funds for the extremely necessary border wall.  Maggots.
  60. 2020 Monday: Disheveled old crone, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, continues braying about President Trump being ‘impeached for life,’ that he ‘was not acquitted’ as ‘without a trial’ there can be no acquittal.  What should be clear to everyone is that this haggard old wretch should undergo impeachment herself because she has clearly lost her mind.  We hope in November 2020 the good people of her district will vote her out of office and send her home to sit in a rocking chair, a shawl covering her sagging shoulders, and that someone will turn on reruns of Matlock while spoon-feeding her chicken noodle soup.  We place part of the blame on her for convincing that Punjab POS Sundar Pichai to close our two Google  Blogger sites, simply because she won the Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Say it ain’t so, Speaker Pelosi!  Meanwhile, additional negative information continues coming out on former New York City Mayor “Mini” Mike Bloomberg showing him disparaging farmers and factory workers all the while crowing about ‘stop and frisk’ taking down minority thug kids in his city.  What a bum.
  61. 2020 Monday A: Yesterday, it was 1,100-plus former Department of Justice officials demanding U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr over his request for Justice and for the judge in the Roger Stone case to reconsider the harsh sentence being imposed.  Today, it’s more than 2,000 former DOJ employees which tells you just how many hardcore leftists we have in the Justice Department.  Roger Stone does not deserve prison.  Period.
  62. 2021 Wednesday: 29 of the Biden Regime: THE BIG NEWS OF THE DAY- RUSH LIMBAUGH HAS SUCCUMBED TO LUNG CANCER AT AGE 70.  ALTHOUGH NONE OF US EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING YOU OVER THE PAST THREE DECADES-PLUS, WE ALL FEEL AS THOUGH YOU WERE A PERSONAL FRIEND.  GOD BLESS AND WE WILL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  63. 2021 Wednesday A: After being slammed since he entered office for pulling back from America’s Middle Eastern allies- primarily Israel and Saudi Arabia- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Joe reached out to Israel today.’  Wow.  Good for you, Chi-Com Joe!  Meanwhile, the Biden administration scraps a deal his predecessor made with ICE and Border Patrol unions that gave them VETO POWER over any misguided presidential decisions such as Joe Biden throwing open the southern border and allowing illegal aliens to stream in like lice off a dead dog.  In other Joe Biden news, the 46th president is under fire for his ‘soft-as-hell’ policies on the Chi-Coms.  He won’t go near the rampant human rights abuses in communist China, a place where institutional rape of Uighur Muslim women continues around the clock, a place where religious and ethnic minorities find themselves locked up in ‘job training centers.’   Come on, man, say something, Joe!  Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘Joe is more or less spewing Chi-Com propaganda by not calling his masters out for their atrocious dismissal of human rights abuses in that country.’ 
  64. 2021 Wednesday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, bloggers in that country must now receive approval from the communist government before they comment or put-up posts speaking about the law, the military, and/or politics.  In other Far East news, the citizens of Myanmar are throwing up roadblocks and protesting the military junta that took control of their country, locked up their civilian leaders, and is allowing loads of prison scum out into the streets to terrify the nation’s citizens. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday C: In Utah, the move to censure freshman RINO Senator Mitt Romney for voting to convict former President Donald J. Trump is gathering steam.  Within a span of about 36 hours, the movement has gained more than 5,000 signatures.  Meanwhile, the GOP is going to target the highly disliked teachers’ unions in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Governors should fire these losers like President Ronald Reagan fired striking air traffic controllers.   Speaking of teachers’ unions, a billboard in Sonoma County, California, tells it like it is: “HAVE YOU SEEN OUR MISSING KIDS (referring to students), LAST SEEN ON MARCH 13, 2020?  Elsewhere, following last week’s vote of 15-8 in the South Carolina State Senate, the state’s House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill limiting abortions.  Once an ultrasound detects a fetal heartbeat, NO abortions can occur.  Period. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday D:  In New York, a bipartisan push to force the criminal Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to share ALL information on the more than 9,000 nursing home deaths in the Empire State from his COVID-19 policies.  Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding answers NOW.  Yet, this slope-headed cretin won’t apologize nor admit fault for the massive number of deaths that occurred on his watch, especially when President Donald J. Trump provided him with loads of help.   In other state news, In other Cuomo news, baby brother Chris, a dimwit on CNN, is also getting blasted for remaining mum on the outrages older brother Andrew has committed in New York.  Typical leftwing family member bums.  Georgia passes a bill that increases the penalties for violence committed by mobs which means Antifa and Black Lives Matter human garbage may soon find themselves in the joint. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday E: The Biden administration says the U.S. is going to pay the World Health Organization $200 million it claims the nation owes.  Everything Trump did, Biden is overturning (well, Barack Obama is overturning).  Speaking of overturning things, Joe Biden is backing away from the TikTok ban which means the Chi-Coms will be able to begin harvesting information from America’s young people being the dimwits they are.  Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, calls for harmony among members of the Grand Old Party.   Elsewhere, the NASA Mars Rover is set to deploy to the surface of the Red Planet tomorrow.  Next, former Texas Governor Rick Perry says, ‘Texans don’t want the federal government controlling their power grid.’  Hell, no one should want that, especially a freedom-loving state like the Lone Star State.  Speaking of the crazy winter weather sweeping through the region, at least 26 people have died in the storms.  Elsewhere, well-known high IQ genius Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke says, “Texas is a failed state.”  It requires a dimwit to see failure.  The only failure is that Austin allowed Green New Deal morons to push their bogus renewable energy sources.
  68. 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: 109,678,891 confirmed cases, +432,687, 2,423,443, confirmed deaths, +12,988, and 61,717,022 confirmed recoveries, +284,639.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,030,330 confirmed cases, up 64,545 from yesterday’s reporting, 492,947 confirmed deaths, UP 1,831, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last three-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 164,356 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  69. 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: 3,498,760 confirmed cases, 47,446 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 333,185 confirmed cases, 4,777 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia: currently, they have 555,592 confirmed cases, 7,075 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 734,575 confirmed cases, 5,441 confirmed deaths, and 673,908 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Italy: 2,735,591 confirmed cases, 94,171 confirmed deaths, and 2,251,734 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, we learned today what we already knew: the Chi-Coms spearheaded a massive disinformation campaign to cover up their role as the ORIGINATORS of the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Go figure.
  70. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,613.02, UP 90.27 points (+0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,965.50, DOWN 82.00 points (-0.58%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,931.33, DOWN 1.26 points (-0.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,775.10 per troy oz., +2.30 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $27.45 per troy ounce, +0.13 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,262.30 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.37%) while the price of COPPER is $3.82 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,369.20 per troy oz, -18.50 (-0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.72 per barrel, +0.58 (+0.95%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.22.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000019 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, Australia says the new rules regarding search engines and social media sites to pay for their news feeds is working out well. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday I: In other exciting news, the wife of Kim Jong Un made her first public appearance in more than a year.  Meanwhile, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3535 with a prize of $21 million on the line: 20, 26, 39, 40, 46, and Mega 19.  Out of 99,136 winning tickets, the highest winners were EIGHT people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $2,263 apiece.  Here are the results for tonight’s Powerball Drawing #821 with a $68 million prize up for grabs: 01, 15, 21, 32, 46, and Powerball 01.  Out of 47,168 winning tickets, te highest winners were 28 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $483 apiece.

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 17, 2022, BLOG POST #4,438

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Wednesday, February 17, 2021, Today in History:  

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…


Thursday, February 17, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[ii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Beatles and the band’s original members, beginning on Friday, 04-November-2016 which ran through Sunday, 11-June-2017. You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

[iv] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

Elizabeth Peratrovich Day (Alaska)

Wouldn’t it be amazing that while Justin Trudeau continues to slide into oblivion what with his belief that he and only he has the divine right of dictators to determine how the serfs live their lives, that the Quebecois independence movement erupted once again?  Quebec has joined other provinces in declaring they WON’T enforce his illegal edict…

Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 502,660 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 139,408 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 392 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  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 $4.719 per gallon, $3.502 in Florida, $4.487 in Hawaii, and $3.965 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Connecticut- $3.654.  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 127th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Montenegro: $6.437 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,036,863,693,890 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 communist China which holds $1,072,000,000,000 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 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken continues thumping his chest, ‘there’s NO evidence Russians are withdrawing from their shared borders with Ukraine’ even as Red Army (yup, that’s what they are) units continue pulling back from the border.  Moscow announced that its armed forces are expected to ‘return to normal positions within 3-4 weeks.’  Next, ‘intelligence experts’ report that ‘Russian hackers are targeting the U.S. defense agencies.’   Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should have aided Kyiv back in October 2021,’ it’s too late now.   Next, Senator Thom Tillis, R-NC, says the ‘Ukraine crisis would not have happened under President Donald J. Trump.’
  8. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The stupid-assed illegal aliens approaching the United States have sewn their mouths shut in some sort of protest against the Mexican government’s passage policies.  Why don’t you commit suicide and do everyone a favor?   Next, Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the southern border catastrophe for the past 320 days.  Even worse, she has not shown up to do a day’s work (well, half a day’s) in 234 days which is despicable.  Anyhow, the cost of caring for the invaders these past 47 days is around $293,970,900.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invasion army for the past 411 days is $41,941,267,319.  Can you imagine the good this money could do for the American people, the homeless, the destitute, the mentally ill, and the impoverished?  It would be life-altering.  Next, the number of illegals who have swarmed across the border since January 01, 2022, is around 384,152.   Finally, here is the conservative LOW estimate of illegal aliens living within the borders of our country: 42,627,786.  These people suck away at wages, they suck away at resources, they drive rents UP, the limit the availability of housing for lower income folks, they deprive food banks of resources for needy Americans, and they drive the rates of crime astronomically up.  This is not good, nor should it be condoned.  The Biden administration is probably getting kickbacks from the traffickers- it’s the only thing that makes sense.
  9. 2022 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is having problems defeating the FREEDOM TRUCKERS.  Tow truck drivers won’t tow the semi-trucks, police are beginning to waver enforcing the dictator’s edicts, and now Quebec joins the growing list of provinces refusing to carry out Justin Trudeau’s demands.  Who knows, maybe with all the turmoil in Ottawa, maybe with all the unnecessary turmoil caused by Justin Trudeau’s absolute ignorance, maybe the Quebecois will begin another secession movement to become their own country.  Can you imagine the repercussions that would befall that dimwit Prime Minister’s insane dictates?  We suspect if Justine doesn’t meet with the truckers and concede to their demands by next Monday, the Parliament will vote to remove him as leader.  Wonder what the odds are?
  10. 2022 Wednesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II- Meanwhile, Ukraine marks a ‘national day of unity’ as babbling lunatics in Washington, D.C. continue prophesying war, war, and more war.  Vladimir Putin could invade, then again, he could not.  If he does, however, he might find himself in a mess similar to what George W. Bush and Dick Cheney got the United States into when he made the ill-advised invasion of Iraq.   It’s easy to steamroll on the capital city, it’s easy to invest it quickly but then maintaining order proves extremely problematic quickly.  During World War II, the Axis forces serving in Russia had to keep approximately four times the number of troops on the frontlines fighting Soviet forces to combat the partisans who made their lives horrible.  They attacked infrastructure like railroads, highways, bridges, staging areas, rear areas, airfields, anything the Germans and their allies required to defeat the USSR.  We suspect Vladimir Putin is aware of this and that if he does invade Ukraine, he will be fighting there for eons.  If Chechnya almost defeated Russia back in 1994 to 1996, the Ukrainians most certainly will.  We say IF Putin wants to maintain power, he won’t physically invade Ukraine but will continue with the cyber stuff.
  11. 2022 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- In another blow to cringing leftists in Virginia, Governor Glenn Youngkin signed a bill into law banning ALL mask mandates.   Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says that the ‘lifting of Chi-Vi restrictions has nothing to do with politics.’  How about that.  What a lying POS.  Oh- how about this?  The Coachella Music Festival is happening this year with NO COVID-19 restrictions.
  12. 2022 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $49.69 (2) AstraZeneca: $60.84 (3) Merck & Company: $77.22 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $167.22 (5) Novavax: $86.55 (6) BioNTech: $165.49 (7) Moderna: $151.81.

  15. 2022 Wednesday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.32 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $32.39 (3) Beyond Meat: $59.69.

  17. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News I-  Slobbering Joe Biden approves the release of Trump era White House visitor logs to the sham committee investigating the false flag events of January 06, 2021.  One day, this will blow back on you, Joe.   Meanwhile, lashing out as is her norm, White House mob mouthpiece, red on the head like a d**k on a dog, Jen Psaki says ‘Republicans holding up Federal Reserve nominees is causing rising inflation.’  Say the f**k what?  Bring back the other chick, she’s far better than YOU are.  Next, Joe Biden’s U.S. Department of Justice is suing Missouri over its new gun laws.
  18. 2022 Wednesday Q: Political News I- We learned today that Hillary Clinton’s allies hold key positions in Black Lives Matter.  Speaking of Hillary, she finally got around to responding to the data linking her and her crime family to the Trump-Russian collusion scheme she cooked up in her kitchen with various paid cronies and hacks: “Nonsense!”  We shall see.   Congressman Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd congressional district, said of Hillary that she’s ‘dangerous’ and that ‘she won’t answer to the findings’ which she hasn’t or won’t.
  19. 2022 Wednesday R: Political News II- Democratic senators are pushing YouTube to ban ‘ghost gun videos.’  What?  Next, six weeks on the job, loser Big Apple Mayor Eric “Sleazebag” Adams is blaming his collapsing regime upon racism.  The press corps does not look ‘like him,’ he wants the press corps to look like him so it will stop slamming him for being the loser that he is.  This POS was elected by a slim majority with no experience and right now in our view, he is worse than his predecessor, Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio was.   That is saying a lot.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says to Cincinnati Bell customers, cancel your accounts since the utility is not going to carry Newsmax anymore.  Amen.
  20. 2022 Wednesday S: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3639 what with a $17 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 08, 36, 38, 40, and Mega 10.

  59. 2016 Tuesday: Former French President Nikolas Sarkozy faces charges for having misused campaign funds.  Meanwhile, the U.S. and communist Cuba sign an agreement to permit air travel between the two countries for the first time in half-a-century.
  60. 2017 Thursday: In Baghdad, ISIS claims responsibility for the third attack in three days, a bombing in the Bayaa neighborhood that murders at least 48 people and wounds countless more.  Meanwhile, as President Donald J. Trump continues his Cabinet formation, he chooses Florida International University College of Law Dean Alex Acosta to serve as his secretary of the Labor Department.  Meanwhile, in the U.S. Senate, the august body confirms by a vote of 51-49 Mick Mulvaney to head the Office of Management and Budget.
  61. 2018 Friday: In the wake of massive anti-government protests, Ethiopia declares a state of emergency.  Light ‘em up.  Elsewhere, in Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion continues, Steve Bannon- strategist for Donald J. Trump- is called before the tribunal to answer questions for the inquisitors.  Democrats pin their hopes on this show trial BS as a means of getting their enemy out of office and into prison.  As the farce continues, 13 Russian nationals from the Internet Research Agency undergo formal accusation by the Mueller team for supposedly interfering in the 2016 Presidential Election.
  62. 2019 Saturday: India’s new high-speed train breaks down on its inaugural run, its return trip to New Delhi.  Elsewhere, Heather Nauert, spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State withdraws from consideration to become the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Meanwhile, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announces that he will be arriving in Hanoi, Vietnam, for the upcoming second summit between Kim and President Donald J. Trump.  Finally, Boko Haram thugs attack civilians in Maiduguri, Nigeria, killing at least people via suicide bombers and wounding numerous others.  The ‘so-called religion of peace’ strikes yet again.[vi]
  63. 2020 Sunday: Members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strike again, this time in Pansi, Burkina Faso, when gunmen storm a church, lighting up the church killing at least 24 people and wounding loads of others.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Elsewhere, COVID-19, aka the Chi-Vi, continues running amok around the world with 71,000 reported cases globally.  However, after fierce efforts to help passengers aboard cruise ships, many are finally repatriated to their home countries.   Meanwhile, 1,100-plus former Department of Justice employees call on Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr to resign.  This BS arose after AG Barr asked the Justice Department to reconsider the sentence being imposed on President Trump’s friend, Roger Stone.  It was unfair, people, for a man his age with no prior convictions.
  64. 2021 Tuesday: Day 28 of the Biden Regime: the first disturbing thing we learned today is that Joe Biden is not the person speaking with foreign leaders but his ‘vice president,’ Ms. Kamala Harris.  What does this tell us?  Something is not right with the ‘46th president.’  Speaking of Old Joe, now that the impeachment trial has ended, the Democrats are going to pivot back and begin working on the ‘Biden agenda.’  Goody for us.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ is in talks with Amazon.com to obtain help in rolling out the Chinese Virus vaccine.  From before the election, Joe said he ‘had a plan.’  So far, no plan is evident anywhere.  Something else he promised today via his mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is that protections for forbearance and foreclosure protections are to continue for those harmed by the Wuhan Virus pandemic.
  65. 2021 Tuesday A: In Washington, D.C., Capitol Hill police officers a vote of NO confidence for their current leaders.  Nancy Pelosi should be among the no confidence vote; after all, we alleged she had a BIG HAND in what happened on January 6, 2021.  Next, Senator Tom Cotton says that it’s ‘time to send troops guarding the Capitol home.’  Meanwhile, Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, says the “Capitol Hill riot was NOT an armed insurrection,” which is simply was not.  The people did not carry firearms and other weapons- other than the Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators- no matter how much liberal news media and squalling Democrats claim it was.   Meanwhile, Louisiana Congressman Bennie Thompson, Democrat, debuted a portion of the Democratic strategy to continue pursuing Donald Trump.  This POS filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani for ‘instigating the January 6, 2021, mob action at the capital.
  66. 2021 Tuesday B: A Los Angeles County supervisor announces that schools be reopened this week as COVID-19 cases have miraculously gone down.   Meanwhile, numerous governors across the nation have signed a letter to Joe Biden demanding he fix the botched rollout of the coronavirus vaccine.  States want to reopen NOW.   Next, beleaguered New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo still won’t apologize for the more than 9,000 deaths he caused in the Empire State nor will apologize for hiding data showing the true figures of all the people HE killed in nursing homes.  You see, patients that tested positive for the Panda Pandemic and were removed to the hospital were then returned to the very same nursing home where they then infected everyone else, many of whom died.  We believe this was purposeful, to eliminate what the Nazis called ‘useless eaters,’ people who absorbed the state’s resources without giving anything back in return.  Civilized countries do not behave this way but left-wing morons sure the hell do.  Cuomo should be in an orange jumpsuit pounding away at rocks.
  67. 2021 Tuesday C: Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz, Republican, says he is considering primarying Senator Mitt Romney in 2024.  We sure the heck hope the state finds a way to remove the Trump-hating POS.  Next, Texas State Senator Paul Bettencourt, 7th State Senate District, says, “Texas is going to remain RED.”  Elsewhere, the GOP of Maine is considering censuring Senator Susan Collins for voting to impeach former President Donald J. Trump.   Meanwhile, the Biden White House says it supports Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s plan to launch a 9-11-style commission to ‘investigate the TRUTH behind the January 6, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots.   Finally, former Senator David Perdue, R-GA, files the paperwork to challenge Senator Raphael Warnock in 2022 and get his old seat back.
  68. 2021 Tuesday D: Iran denies any responsibility for the rocket attack in Iraq the day before, one that killed a private contractor and wounded a U.S. servicemember.   Meanwhile, a North Korean manages to cross through the DMZ separating his country and the neighboring South Korea.  They believe him to be a defector.  We feel badly for his family in the North.  Elsewhere, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Joe Biden is going to ‘recalibrate U.S. relations with Saudi Arabia and that Old Joe will- at some point- call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to see what’s up, dog?’
  69. 2021 Tuesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,463,210 confirmed cases, +395,652, 2,416,661, confirmed deaths, +11,115, and 61,541,518 confirmed recoveries, +246,066.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,014,875 confirmed cases, up 75,283 from yesterday’s reporting, 492,385 confirmed deaths, UP 1,723, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least three weeks now (this number no longer even shows up).  This tells us the Biden administration no longer wants them reported.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 162,525 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the lab-engineered Panda Pandemic, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass playing pattycake with your grandchildren and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  70. 2021 Tuesday F: 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: 3,490,585 confirmed cases, 47,141 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,606 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 331,305 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Massachusetts: currently, they have 560,576 confirmed cases, 15,567 confirmed deaths but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Amazing how very few states in the country report their recovery numbers.  Ask yourselves, WHY?  What purpose does it serve to provide case numbers, numbers of fatalities but nary a number of folks who have beat this vile Chi-Com virus.  What’s up with that?
  71. 2021 Tuesday G: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 734,575 confirmed cases, 5,441 confirmed deaths, and 673,908 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- Spain: they have 3,096,343 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 65,979 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.   We will say this: the primary purpose of the Chi-Vi was to remove the threat of Trump- the Chi-Coms accomplished that goal.  The secondary goal (or so we believe) is to ‘cleanse the world’ of the old, the infirm, the sick, and the mentally disabled.  Anyone else who died from this Wuhan Institute of Virology lab-engineered virus is just collateral damage.  Shame on the Chi-Coms!
  72. 2021 Tuesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,522.75 UP 64.35 points (+0.020%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,047.40, DOWN 47.98 points (-0.34%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,932.59, DOWN 2.24 points (-0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,791.20 per troy oz., -7.80 (-0.43%) while the price of SILVER is $27.30 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.11%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,269.40 per troy oz, -10.20 (-0.80%) while the price of COPPER is $3.83 per pound, -0.00 (-0.07%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,388.20 per troy oz, +5.60 (+0.24%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.78 per barrel, -0.27 (-0.45%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000020.  In other economic news, thanks to the Chi-Coms, airline passengers in the U.S. dropped by 20-percent in 2020.
  73. 2021 Tuesday E: Burmese police (military thugs) charge imprisoned democratically elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi with a ‘good one.’  They have accused her of violating the country’s natural-disaster management law, previously used against people who violated coronavirus restrictions.  The military who detained Suu Kyi on February 1, already faces charges for illegally importing walkie-talkies and could hold her indefinitely in prison sans charges.  Protesters in the country continue defying the military and demand her release.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday F: In Texas, winter storm conditions are trashing the Lone Star state what with 4 million Texans in the dark due to crumbling windmills and solar farms, neither of which are able to produce energy in a freak winter storm like this one that snow piled up across the state.  Rotating blackouts (welcome to California) make matters even worse and at present, at least 10 people have died in the insane wintry conditions.  In Washington, D.C., Joe Biden has issued a disaster declaration so FEMA can mobilize and begin providing citizens of the state with the life-saving aid they need.  Maybe the winter storms will stop the illegal alien invasion along the border with Mexico.   
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: The U.S. urges the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels to stop conducting cross-border raids into Saudi Arabia and to stop drone attacks on Saudi infrastructure and civilians and to join in U.S.-backed peace talks to bring peace to the region.  However, since Secretary of State Anthony Blinken removed the Houthis from the list of terrorist groups, the jihadist Shiite group has stepped up attacks on Saudi Arabia.  You know, we should sell some neutron bombs to the Saudis and permit them to do what they must do: eliminate this terrorist threat.   In other exciting news, the Office of the 45th President put out a lengthy statement in which, he slams- rightfully so- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for being the lowlife POS that he is. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: The Massachusetts Climate ‘Czar’ David Ismay resigned today after video of him holding a Zoom call with similar bozos in Vermont surfaced.  Apparently, Mr. Ismay believes that ‘seniors on fixed income, average citizens, and privately owned cars for energy usage and CO2 emissions’ and went onto say that average citizens and seniors would have to suffer in order to reach the draconian Green New Deal goals imposed on this people of this once prosperous New England state.    Once again, we see the insensitivity of liberals and RINOs who could care less about average folks and the vulnerable among us so long as they continue pushing this self-enrichment scheme not just in our country but around the world.  Look at flipping Texas, folks, home of massive quantities of domestic energy yet people, their pets, and livestock are freezing in this arctic chill that is trashing the Midwest all because they put far too much emphasis on RENEWABLE sources of energy which are half-assed at best.  It’s time to throw the Green New Deal and every a—hole connected to it out of office and into the dumpster of snake oil salespersons.   
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1634 with a $96 million on the line: 01, 36, 44, 54, 66, and Mega 10.  Out of 77,861 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO mega for a prize of $134,768.
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: In the final news for the evening, Governor Gavin Newsom of California is allowing mail-in ballots to EVERY California voter for 2021.  The question is, WHY would the soon-to-be-former governor do this?  Because he is going to lose his seat.  However, we will say this: IF Newsom somehow survives the recall election- NO one will ever have to doubt that the 2020 Elections were indeed stolen, in the presidential election and the Senate seats in Georgia and the one in Michigan.  This will be rock-solid proof that the ONLY reason WHY anyone would resort to mail-in ballots is because they are going to steal an election.  What are you going to do, Governor Newsom?  Are you going to prove that Democrats and RINOs manipulate and steal elections or are you going to go down like a man?   
  79. 2022 Wednesday: Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album guitar virtuoso Richard Thompson released is a collection of his crème de la crème acoustic tunes.  “Acoustic Classics II” came out on August 10, 2017, and featured a collection of tunes culled from his solo albums, both ‘solo’ and with ex-wife, Linda Thompson as well as with Fairport Convention, the band from whence the legend sprang long, long ago.  The music is fabulous and the collection concise which is why we encourage everyone who has yet to avail themselves of the amazing music of this idiosyncratic axman should do so now.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you took our advice.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 16, 2022, BLOG POST #4,436

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Tuesday, February 16, 2021, Today in History:  

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…


Wednesday, February 16, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[ii] 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.

[iii] This is a HOKEY pseudo-science, much like palm-reading and tarot cards to forecast the future.  The Sun is the prime driver of climate change across our Solar System, no matter what that crackpot loony tunes, pot-smoking loser, Bill Nye the ‘Science Guy’ claims.  Climate on all nine planets (yes, Pluto is a planet) is driven by or the lack of solar flares, sunspots, and solar winds.  Do not allow leftist scumbags to terrorize you into believing something that simply that is impossible for humanity to cause.  Consider this: in the previous century, s-o-o-o many bombs were dropped, so  many artillery shells rained down upon humanity, and so many nuclear weapons tests below ground, at ground level, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans occurred and yet, here we are.  Next time some loser attempts to frighten you into surrendering all of your liberties to ‘save the planet,’ tell them to go suck an un-circumcised schlong and to shut the f**k up.  You will feel much better.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing

[v] Many people believe that President Barack Hussein Obama deserves an asterisk after his name in the history books seeing as how he never cleared up the matter of his birthplace.  Yes, he did present a birth certificate of sorts, but many contend it was a forgery and that he should be removed completely from the history books of the United States.

[vi] Islam.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

46. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2022, UPDATE A:

Susan B. Anthony’s Birthday (Local observance- California, Florida, New York, and Wisconsin)

And the world holds its breath: will there or won’t there be an invasion of Ukraine?  Putin pulls back some troops and then Joe goes out and busts his chops with a tough on Russia speech.  Joe, Putin ain’t Corn Pop (of course, it could all be for show, aka ‘wag the dog?’)

  1. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 415,771,937 confirmed cases, +2,177,261, 5,855,567 confirmed deaths, +14,270 and 338,452,014 confirmed recoveries, +3,235,257. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 79,622,891 confirmed cases, UP 213,469 from yesterday’s reporting, 949,109 confirmed deaths, UP +4,663,[i] and 50,419,168 confirmed recoveries, UP 406,761 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 499,725 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 136,473 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 391 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Tuesday 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: 8,844,944 confirmed cases, 83,280 confirmed deaths, and 8,761,664 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,801,059 confirmed cases, 67,911 confirmed deaths, and 3,756,624 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 232,302 confirmed cases, 1,262 confirmed deaths, and 231,040 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,410,658 confirmed cases, 11,373 confirmed deaths, and 1,399,285 confirmed recoveries (lazy bastards- it’s still the weekend for this backward state).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Nebraska: they have 451,718 confirmed cases, 3,830 confirmed deaths, and 447,888 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,474,127 confirmed cases, 9,651 confirmed deaths, and 3,226,276 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Mayotte, 151st place on the list: 36,572 cases of the virus, 187 confirmed death and 2,964 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,988.84, UP 422.67 points (+1.22%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,139.76 UP 348.84 points (+2.53%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,471.07, UP 69.40 points (+1.58%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $92.44 per barrel, +0.37 (+0.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,853.40 per troy oz., -2.80 (-0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $23.38 per troy ounce, +0.03 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,024.30 per troy oz, +3.90 (+0.39%) while the price of COPPER is $4.53 per pound, 0.00 (-0.07%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,256.84 per troy oz., -103.37 (-4.38%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,350.00 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,500,000.00 per CNY/T, +90,500,000.00 (+6.38%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,238.00 per USD/T, +23.50 (+0.73%).

  6. 2022 Tuesday 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 $4.711 per gallon, $3.481 in Florida, $4.467 in Hawaii, and $3.958 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Colorado- $3.348.  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 126th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Zimbabwe: $6.365 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,034,758,038,288 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 ALL OTHERS the next largest holder of U.S. debt is- back to the top- Japan holds $1,251,000,000,000 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 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Congressman Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district says that ‘Joe Biden cares MORE for the borders of Ukraine than he does for the United States.’  Next, in a massive human trafficking sting, 500 traffickers were arrested in California.  Moving on, here is the cost of caring for illegal aliens for the past 46 days: $287,716,200.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the illegal aliens for the past 411 days: $41,935,012,619.  Next, here is the number of illegals who have swarmed across the southern border over the course of the past 46 days: 375,979.  Finally, here is the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens living across the United States: 42,619,613.  Round them up and shove them back across the U.S. border into Mexico.
  8. 2022 Tuesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Russia continues f**king with the impotent Biden regime.  Moscow began moving some of its troops away from the Ukrainian border which led a feeble Joe Biden to go before reporters and start blasting the Russians.  Vladimir Putin ain’t Corn Pop, Joe.  Please be careful.   President Vladimir Putin decided he needed to respond to Joe’s bluster and said all this talk of ‘imminent invasion of Ukraine is little more than baseless fear-mongering.’  Sort of what we think.  Anyhow, as Russian forces ‘pull back’ from the Ukrainian frontier, a massive cyberattack slammed into that country’s government as well as its big banks.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, said there’s a ‘reasonable chance’ Russia won’t invade’ no matter what slobbering Joe Biden says.
  9. 2022 Tuesday H: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- Spurred on by the Canadian truckers, Europeans are showing up in massive numbers in Brussels to protest the exceedingly harsh COVID-19 rules and regulations imposed by the European Union.  Speaking of Canada, Ontario, Windsor, Canada, begins lifting COVID-19 restrictions all the while Justin Trudeau threatens protesting Canadians with government-sponsored violence.  The Justin Trudeau regime claims it captured a cache of weapons flowing north out of the United States to Canada’s freedom fighters.  We don’t believe that crap.  Justin Trudeau is lying sack of dog shit.  Despite threats out of Ottawa, Canadian truckers are digging in despite the government’s threats.
  10. 2022 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II- In New York City, approximately 1,430 city employees have been terminated for failing to undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Elsewhere, because the world’s greatest tennis player, Novak Djokovic, won’t get vaccinated with this experimental vaccine, he could miss the French Open and Wimbledon Tennis Tournaments. 
  11. 2022 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $49.79 (2) AstraZeneca: $60.30 (3) Merck & Company: $77.81 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $167.31 (5) Novavax: $87.13 (6) BioNTech: $163.44 (7) Moderna: $151.12.  Interestingly, the Pfizer whistleblower continues with the lawsuit alleging falsification of data during COVID-19 vaccine trials.  And YOU wonder why people are loath to get vaccinated for this virus.
  12. 2022 Tuesday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $94.04 (2) General Dynamics: $212.77 (3) Boeing: $217.73 (4) Lockheed Martin: $382.22 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $384.77.
  13. 2022 Tuesday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.92 (2) DuPont: $81.67 (3) Honeywell: $189.53 (4) 3M: $157.34 (5) Teijen: $1,438.00.
  14. 2022 Tuesday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.59 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $25.42 (3) Beyond Meat: $62.00.

  16. 2022 Tuesday O: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump says that Arizona’s RINO Governor Doug Ducey won’t win the GOP U.S. Senate primary race.   U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell sure as hell wants a ‘Senator Ducey’ in the upper chamber to help him push his RINO agenda.  Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio says that President Trump’s handling of his White House records was NOT a crime.
  17. 2022 Tuesday P: Joe Biden News I- Joe Biden did some chest-thumping today and said- as the Russians were conducting a drawback from the border with Ukraine- that the Russian invasion of Ukraine was STILL imminent.  (The Germans say the invasion is happening tomorrow).  Next, Joe Biden said that defending Ukraine’s liberty could cause the United States ‘economic pain.’  WTF are you saying, Joe?  We don’t want to defend f**king Ukraine.  Even as Joe was blustering and demanding proof of the Russian ‘withdrawal,’ Ukraine was being slammed with a massive cyberattack.   Conversely, as Joe Biden continues banging the war drums, K. T. McFarland says that ‘U.S. energy production would stall Russia’s aggression.’
  18. 2022 Tuesday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- Following the release of data linking the Obama-Biden regime and Hillary Clinton to the entire Trump-Russian collusion hoax by special counsel John Durham, the Biden regime remains mum when pressed to explain their part in the fabrication.  Subsequently, a new poll says that ONLY 34-percent of Americans approve of the job Joe Biden is doing thus far.  As if that isn’t bad enough, we learn that Joe Biden has yet to speak to any of his supposed potential nominees for the U.S. Supreme Court.  When Hillary was asked by the foreign press about the data tying her to the Trump-Russia collusion scam, she remained totally SILENT.  Could the trap be closing in on the rats?  We most certainly hope so.   Finally, as the economy under the Biden regime continues imploding, rising lumber costs are adding an additional $19,000 to the price of a new home.
  19. : Joe Biden Regime News I- The feds are considering putting a pause on the 18-cents-per-gallon fuel tax so they can lower prices.  Next, the feds are putting pressure on Honduras to arrest their former President Juan Orlando Hernández on U.S. federal drug-trafficking charges and to send him to the U.S. for trial.  WTF do we get this power.   Next, Andy Keyso- head of the Internal Revenue Service- says the IRS is facing enormous challenges for this season.  Finally, the AP says the White House is seeking yet another $30 billion with which to combat COVID-19 which means most of the money will be going into the pockets of various Democratic Party bigwigs.  Say it ain’t so.
  20. 2022 Tuesday S: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- Even as massive electoral defeats and possible turnabout following the upcoming elections looms before them, the slimeballs on this bogus ‘select committee of losers’ sent out a bunch of subpoenas to the ‘alternate electors’ in the 2020 Presidential Election.  It’s not like Democrats haven’t challenged every presidential election since 2000.  We hope all these scumbags find themselves underneath the microscope come January 2023.
  21. 2022 Tuesday T: Political News I- The ‘More Perfect Union’ PAC- associated with the reprobates at the now-discredited, pedophile-run Lincoln Project- is working to stop Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, from becoming Senator Mo Brooks.  These so-called Republicans are among the worst RINO scum.   Meanwhile, Congresswoman Elaine Luria, D-VA 2nd congressional district, is trying to do some CYA now that everyone knows she broke a solemn promise of NOT taking corporate money.  She did indeed take $200,000 from big corporations.
  22. 2022 Tuesday U: Political News II- Chris Farrell- director of investigations at Judicial Watch says that President Trump should pursue civil litigation against the tech firm responsible for spying on him both as presidential candidate and even worse- once in the White House- because he believes he has a massive victory coming his way.   A new TIPP poll says that two-thirds of Democrats believe that Hillary Rodham Clinton should be investigated for her crimes.
  23. 2022 Tuesday V: Political News III- Chief Financial Officer for Florida, Jimmy Theo Patronis Jr. says that people are flocking to the Sunshine State precisely because of the leadership of “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ leadership.   The state is crediting blue state governors for their massive boom in tourism.   Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that failed policies of the Democrats have caused the inflation harming the country.   Next, as bipartisan talks implode in Washington, D.C., the GOP offers its own Russia sanctions plan should the Russkies pour across the frontier into Ukraine.
  24. 2022 Tuesday W: Political News IV- Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, said that Iran poses a bigger threat to the world than either Russia or the Chi-Coms do.  Uh, the Chi-Coms pose a MASSIVE THREAT to not only the United States but to the entire world.  Elsewhere, down in Texas, election officials are returning high numbers of questionable mail-in ballots.  (Looks like the “Beto” O’Rourke mob is trying to f**k with the elections).   In other news, Senator Roger Marshall says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s emails demonstrate his attempt to suppress any connection between the Wuhan Institute of Virology’s lab leak ‘theory’ (the God’s honest truth), and the Chi-Vi.
  25. 2022 Tuesday X: Political News V- Congresswoman Kathleen Rice, D-NY 4th congressional district, became the 30th Democrat to announce, ‘No mas,’ by saying she won’t be running for another term.  She has held the seat since 2015.  Elsewhere, in Pennsylvania, a new Trafalgar poll says that GOP U.S. senatorial candidate Dr. Mehmet Oz has a substantial lead in the race for the seat being vacated by Senator Pat Toomey, RINO.  In other news, at least eight GOP senators are opposing putting unruly airlines passengers on the NO-FLY LIST.  What the hell is wrong with the Biden regime?  Putting unruly passengers on the ’NO-FLY LIST’ is frigging crazy.
  26. 2022 Tuesday Y: Political News VI- After Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, put a hold on the bill authorizing the Biden regime to buy crack pipes with which to create ‘equity’ in the country by distributing them to black crackheads, she lifted it today.  Not sure as to why.  In other political news, freshman mayor of New York City and a failure already, Eric “The Idiot” Adams says the media is mistreating him because…wait for it…here it comes…he’s BLACK.  Give us a f**king break already.  Please.   Meanwhile, Congressman Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says that the ‘GOP is going to win the U.S. House of Representatives, it will investigate Hillary Rodham Clinton.’
  27. 2022 Tuesday Z: Lawsuit and Legal News- We don’t understand how this is so, but the survivors of the Sandy Hook school massacre settled with firearms manufacturer Remington for $73 million in the first of its kind settlement.   Next, after the judge in the civil lawsuit between former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and the New York Times said the case would be tossed, the jury found against her.
  28. 2022 Tuesday AA: Crime and Punishment News- Houston P.D. is offering a $30,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a road rage shooting suspect.  Next, the husband of the cinematographer murdered by Alec Baldwin on the set of the now-dead movie, “Rust,” is suing Baldwin having named him in a wrongful death lawsuit.
  29. 2022 Tuesday BB: Moron News I- Petulant and prancing little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, CPUSA-NY 14th congressional district is saying stupid shit like she always does: Red States are pushing Jim Crow-style disenfranchisement laws.’  Oh, shut the hell up, dimwit.  People like you eventually find your way into landfills.
  30. 2022 Tuesday CC: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1738 what with a $53 million jackpot on the line: 02, 04, 15, 21, 63, and Mega 19.  Out of 51,314 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,656.
