218. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 06, 2022

It would be amazing what a killer drone swarm could accomplish, half a million killer drones laden with explosives crashing into the bridge of the Chi-Com fleet, onto the funnels taking out whatever protections there might be while the secondary swarm goes down the stacks into the interior of the ship setting off a chain of explosions sending the ships to the bottom of the Taiwan Strait. Drones can disable deck guns, jet engines, take out landing craft while submersible drones hammer the bellies of other vessels including submarines.

  65. 2020 Thursday D: Regarding the MASSIVE EXPLOSION that brought down a good part of Beirut, Lebanon, port authorities find themselves under lockdown while the government of the nation continues seeking answers as to what occurred there.  The government is trying to explain where there were 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate stored long-term in the port.  Many people believe the Russians and Iranians have something to do with this disaster because ammonium nitrate frequently plays a role in the creation of humongous clandestine bombs.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Syrians, and local jihadist groups Hamas and Hezbollah were planning something BIG against Israel.  We await further developments.
  66. 2020 Thursday E: President Trump continues battling for more debates between himself and “Pro-China Joe” Biden because the first debate will NOT occur until after early voting begins.  Meanwhile, the former VP in an interview said the ‘Latino community is extremely diverse while the black community isn’t’ in so many words.  Look, everyone knows that “Groping Joe” Biden has lost it and also is extremely racist, yet the polls continue showing that he is going to blow Donald Trump OUT.  Whoa.

  73. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our esteemed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been on the job now for 136 days.  What’s more, it’s her 42nd day since her one and only visit to the southern border.  Wow.  Anyone else this derelict in his or her duty would have received their pink slip long ago.  
  74. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– On Newsmax, Sean Spicer of Spicer & Co., shared an incredible stat of EIGHT states with LESSER populations that the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the United States this year.  Rhode Island: 1,097,379.  Wyoming: 576,851.  North Dakota: 779,094.  Montana: 1,084,225.  Vermont: 643,077.  South Dakota: 886,667, Delaware: 989,943.  Alaska: 733,391.  What a statistic.  Meanwhile, healthcare services in Houston, Texas, are at the breaking point what with the thousands of sick illegal aliens flooding into the city.  What the hell is going on?

Mark Green, R-TN 7th CD, says ‘it’s wrong for the CDC to use OLD DATA to try to control things NOW.’
  77. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– A growing coalition of college and university students are urging the courts to stop the imposition of Chi-Vi vaccine mandates before students can return to classes in the fall.  Speaking of students, Joe Biden commits another unconstitutional act by extending the ban on student loan debt repayment until January 2022.  Who is paying the debt or worse, will lenders expect the missed payments when January arrives?  Elsewhere, as various state and local governments consider stuffing vaccine mandates onto everyone they can, we learn today that 72-percent of black Americans have not yet sought out vaccinations.  (Note- Chef Bea says that she won’t get the jab because every time white liberals tell blacks to do something for their own good, it never is).
  78. 2021 Friday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News–     Mike Lindell of My Pillow® fame gave a massive speech in Dallas, Texas, tonight in which, he began laying out the case for overturning the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election and several of the Senate races, i.e., Georgia, Arizona, and Michigan- that went to Democrats ONLY because they stole them.

  80. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. dictator ‘Drooling Joe’ Biden unveiled ‘his’ target for 50-percent electric vehicle use in the country by 2030 today.  Big whoop.  Next, ‘Dictator Joe’ Biden is reportedly considering withholding federal funding from states, cities, colleges and universities, and anything else sucking away at the federal government’s sagging teats to force the numbers of vaccinations jabbed into arms to go UP.  (Note- how soon before the Biden regime demands everyone on Social Security, on welfare, and on other government assistance must get vaccinated or lose their monthly aid?  You know it MUST be in the works).  
  81. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Stephen Miller told Tucker Carlson on his Fox News Channel program this evening that ‘for the first time in U.S. history, we have a government that is truly disdainful of the American people.’  He said this in a conversation as to WHY the Biden regime loves ILLEGAL ALIENS more than it cares for its own citizens.   Wow.   Elsewhere, gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder says that ‘Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom and Andrew “Killer” Cuomo of New York have much alike- both will soon be out of office.’  Mr. Elder is seeking to replace “Nazi” Newsom while New Yorkers are demanding the ‘Love Gov’ resign now.
  82. 2021 Friday O: Political News II– We learn today from author Julie Kelly of American Greatness that the 550 people held without bail in the D.C. hoosegow for their roles in the FALSE FLAG OPERATION conducted via Communist China-Democratic Party-RINO collusion on January 6, 2021, they will remain in jail- sans bail as we mentioned- until sometime next year when the SHOW TRIALS will begin.  The Democrats seek to use these unfortunate political prisoners, people regularly abused by the jail staff, so as to gin up anger at Republicans ahead of the 2022 Mid-Terms.  Not only is this incredibly abusive, but it’s also equally un-American and the authoritarian regime must free these people on bond as they did Antifa and Black Lives Matter criminals.  Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi[xv] and the Dems ‘let down’ Capitol Hill law enforcement on that day by allowing what happened to happen.
  83. 2021 Friday P: Political News III– In a major slap to the face of regime dictator Joe Biden, 9-11 families have said they don’t want him anywhere near the upcoming memorial events.  Ouch.  In other political news, Rep. Carlos A. Giménez, R-FL 26th CD, blasted the Biden regime by saying the ‘White House pick for ambassador to communist Cuba demonstrates the regime errs when it comes to Cuba.’  Next, Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, DS-MO 1st CD, says ‘it’s no one’s business that she spent more than $200,000 on private security as she screeches about DEFUNDING THE POLICE.’  Hence, you know why we have bestowed the nickname on her that we have. [xvi]  Finally, the Department of Justice is urging a federal judge to keep the unconstitutional moratorium on evictions in place.  We say, “FIGHT IT!”
  84. 2021 Friday Q: U.S. Senate News I– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is calling for the august body to reconvene on Saturday so they can stuff the ‘infrastructure bill’ through and onto ‘Dictator Joe’s’ desk.  Speaking of the aforementioned ‘bill,’[xvii] a new study by the University of Pennsylvania says that the ‘infrastructure bill’ will NOT drive-up U.S. GDP no matter how much the liberals claim it will.

Bonney, aka “Billy the Kid,” 140 years ago.
  86. 2021 Friday S: Business News– Inflation is afflicting ALL Americans.  Sean Spicer of Spicer & Co. on Newsmax shared alarming statistics regarding the increasing costs of the Biden/Democratic Party’s unparalleled spending.  First, milk has gone up 5.6-percent.  Next, car rentals have shot up a whopping 87.7-percent.  Used cars have gone up 45.2-percent.  Gasoline has gone up by 45.1-percent.  Laundry machines- washers and dryers- have gone up 29.4-percent.  Airfare has increased by 24.6-percent while hotel rooms have gone up 16.9-percent.  Furniture prices have increased by 8.6-percent, bacon by 8.4-percent, TVs by 7.6-percent, fresh fruit 7.3-percent, shoes 6.5-percent, and fresh fish by 6.4-percent.  Inflation is a tax on everyone, but it singles out the poor the most.  They already struggle to survive in this life and when everything they buy goes up and up, they are lost.  Thank you, Joe Biden, thank you, Democrats.
  87. 2021 Friday T: Economic News– The Biden regime is CELEBRATING the jobs figures for July: 943,000 NEW JOBS and what’s more, unemployment has fallen to 5.4-percent.  But wait- there’s more and it’s not that stupendous.  Observe: of the 943,000 new jobs, 240,000 were GOVERNMENT JOBS which means the Deep State continues to grow.  Moreover, 380,000 jobs in the hospitality industry underwent creation even though employers are having a hell of a time locating people to fill more of these jobs.  Add to that the fact that when Republicans are in the White House, Democrats dismiss these jobs as ‘hamburger-flipper jobs,’ and other derogatory names.  Even more important, ONLY 27,000 manufacturing jobs were created, and retail jobs fell by 5,500 jobs which also is not good.  Continue blowing your horn, Biden regime, but you have done NOTHING.  
  88. 2021 Friday U: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Things continue looking bad for Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, DS-NY, as additional voices continue their demands for him to step down.  Heck, one of his accusers has now filed a criminal complaint against the ogre.  At a fundraiser in New York, President Donald J. Trump said things are looking bad for the serial sexual harasser.  (Note- NYC mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa says the ‘taxpayers will have to cover hypocrite Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s legal bills.’  That does indeed suck).  Next, the family of slain Capitol Hill protester Ashli Babbitt is filing a $10 million wrongful death suit against the Capitol Hill officer who shot her dead as she was going through a window.
  89. 2021 Friday V: Religion News– Rabbi Yaakov Menken on One America News today said that ‘being anti-Israel is a cover for being anti-Semitic.’  (Rabbi Menken is managing director for the Coalition of Jewish Values).
  90. 2021 Friday W: Florida State News– After Joe Biden attempted to slam “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis yesterday by saying when asked about the Floridian governor, ‘governor who?’, Governor DeSantis said this morning, “I wonder what else he has forgotten?”  Meaning, everything because the dictator is frigging senile.  Meanwhile, many Florida school districts are saying they are going to defy the governor’s orders on NO MASKS in school.
  91. 2021 Friday X: Texas State News– Even though Washington, D.C., is growing tired of the fugitive Texas Democrats and would like them to take their ‘super-spreader selves’ back home, the Lone Star scum expect to remain in the District of Columbia while the 2nd Special Session of the state legislature is in effect.  (Republicans, we hope you take note of this behavior and begin employing it yourselves).
  92. 2021 Friday Y: Sports News I– The International Olympic Committee has stripped two Belarussian coaches of their accreditation and Japan has sent them home.  Meanwhile, due to all the WOKE BS going on, NBC’s ratings for its Olympics coverage are in the crapper and heading down the drain.  Go figure.
  93. 2021 Friday Z: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Pediatricians across the United States are upbraiding the American Medical Association’s effort to remove gender from birth certificates.  One of the stupidest things we have ever heard.  We hope the pediatricians win.
  94. 2021 Friday AA: South Dakota State News– With Governor Kristi Noem’s blessings, the 81st Sturgis Motorcycle Rally kicks off for its annual 10-day event.
  95. 2021 Friday BB: Arizona State News– Copper State lawmaker Senator Tony Navarrete underwent arrest in connection with a 2019 child sex crime.  So far, the state senator has given no comment.
  96. 2021 Friday CC: Big Tech News– Twitter suspends a podcaster for saying that the tranny weightlifter from New Zealand is a ‘man’ which he is.  What a load of crap.
  97. 2021 Friday DD: Federal and State Court News– A judge refuses to block the construction of the obscene Barack Hussein Obama ‘presidential library and compound’ in Chicago.
  98. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1683 what with a $208 million jackpot on the line: 09, 18, 40, 46, 69, and Mega 09.  Out of 80,316 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,621 apiece.
  99. 2022 Saturday:  Alas, the Chi-Coms are firing missiles over the island nation of Taiwan.  At least they were this past Thursday.  It’s also amazing how our numbers went straight down after we shared how the Taiwanese could destroy the Chi-Com invasion fleet- when- or more likely- IF it ever comes.  It would be amazing what a killer drone swarm could accomplish, half a million killer drones laden with explosives crashing into the bridge of the Chi-Com fleet, onto the funnels taking out whatever protections there might be while the secondary swarm goes down the stacks into the interior of the ship setting off a chain of explosions sending the ships to the bottom of the Taiwan Strait.  Drones can disable deck guns, jet engines, take out landing craft while submersible drones hammer the bellies of other vessels including submarines.  Look, the Chi-Coms do not like anyone speaking negatively of them but we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM do not do this for the numbers.  No, we do it because it’s a calling and also believe that Taiwan is the legitimate government in exile of the mainland, NOT the communist regime in Beijing.  Saying this, we know they will make attempts on our lives (as they seemingly have in the past with letters addressed to George Noory) but to the Chi-Coms, we say, “F**K YOU.”  Chef Hector “El Chilote” Santanamos De Soto.

212. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JULY 31, 2022

1942 Friday: SS troops at Minsk, Belorussia, gas 1,000 Jews. Decades later, Palestinian-lovers and leftwing liberals would denigrate the Holocaust as being a mythical event but the evidence is both ponderous and factual. Meanwhile, German U-Boats sink 96 Allied ships during the month for a total of 476,000 tons.

  39. 1960 Sunday: Founder of the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad, calls for a ‘black state.’[iii].   (Note- wasn’t the nation of Liberia created to be the first ‘black state?’).  The sad thing is, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wanted the American people to be integrated, intermixed, and one harmonious people.  That was his dream so anything contrary to that dream is nothing more than bullshit and what’s even worse, six decades later America-haters would be trying to tear it all asunder.
  40. 1961 Monday: Israel welcomes its 1,000,000-immigrant arrival on this date.  Elsewhere, the first tie in an All-Star Game major league baseball history took place when officials stopped the game in the 9th inning due to rain at Boston’s Fenway Park.  Meanwhile, IBM introduced its first Selectric typewriter on this date with its distinctive “typeball.”

  63. 2017 Monday: After less than two weeks, foul-mouth Anthony Scaramucci, aka the Mooch- is forced out of his position as communications director for Donald Trump’s White House.  The next to get the boot is the wily 5th U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.  This loser first became secretary on January 20, 2017 and served under President Donald J. Trump from then until today.  His replacement, the 5.5th Acting U.S. Secretary of the DHS Elaine Duke assumed office.  She would serve until December 06, 2017.
  64. 2018 Tuesday: The 104th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, nominated by President Ronald Reagan to replace 99th U.S. Supreme Court Justice Lewis F. Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement.  He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later.  Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.  Little did they know they would not have to worry about that. [vi] Meanwhile, Facebook announces a major moment of virtue-signaling as it announces it ‘removed Russian-linked accounts that are attempting to interfere in the November 2018 Elections.’[vii] 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor.  Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  66. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women.  He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him. [viii]

  68. 2020 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 493,588 confirmed cases, UP 8,086 cases, 9,005 confirmed deaths, UP by 96, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,989 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,226 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  69. 2020 Friday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,428.32, UP 114.67 points (+0.44%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,745.27, UP 157.46 points (+1.49%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,271.12, UP 24.90 points (+0.77%).  The price of GOLD is $1,973.30 per troy oz., +10.50 (+0.53%) while the price of SILVER is $24.63 per troy ounce, +0.414 (+1.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $919.70 per troy oz, +0.80 (+0.09) while the price of COPPER is $2.86 per pound, -0.0085 (-0.30%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $40.43 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.40%).  Currently, one dollar U.S. = 6.97 yuan.  Meanwhile, the U.S. unemployment rate has dropped from 13.3-percent in June to 11.1-percent in July.
  70. 2020 Friday D: Rasmussen polling has President Donald J. Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
  71. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 198,497,926 confirmed cases, +525,446, 4,232,079 confirmed deaths, +8,931 and 179,252,925 confirmed recoveries, +368,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,743,144 confirmed cases, UP 65,394 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,310 confirmed deaths, UP 380, [ix] and 29,666,084 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,303.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

  72. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,868 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 93,210 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  73. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,961,638 confirmed cases, 64,423 confirmed deaths, and 2,100,715 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,636,066 confirmed cases, 39,079 confirmed deaths, and 2,089,018 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 41,925 confirmed cases, 537 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 474,835 confirmed cases, 6,168 confirmed deaths, and 230,729 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wisconsin: they have 687,197 confirmed cases, 8,290 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [xi]

[xii]     
  75. 2021 Saturday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,935.47, DOWN 149.06 points (-0.42%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,672.68, DOWN 105.59 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,395.26, DOWN 23.89 points (-0.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $73.81 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.19%).  The price of GOLD is $1,812.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.55 per troy ounce, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,045.90 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $4.48 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[xiii] The price of PALLADIUM is $2,660.50 per troy oz, +14.52 (+0.55%).

[xvi]        
  76. 2021 Saturday 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 by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.367 per gallon, $2.972 in Florida, $4.092 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.919.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Curacao: $4.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,587,535,043,912 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  77.  2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 130 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘Booty Call Mattress,’ aka the squealing swamp hog of the Everglades, aka the yowling midnight lemur to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 36th day since her one and only visit to the border and again to have done nothing about it.  Okay, One American News always presents the costs of illegal immigration for the American People.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegals pouring across the southern border: $635,102,752.  Absolutely shocking.  Horrible we know.  Next, here is the cost for this year: $231,328,045,120.  Imagine all this money going to care for ILLEGAL ALIENS!  Next, here are the numbers estimated to have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,376,624.  Finally, here are the CONSERVATIVE estimates as to how many illegal aliens are roaming the land: 36,376,662.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an army of storm troopers the Democrats can deploy against the rest of us (which is why ammunition is flying off the shelves right now).
  78. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has written a letter to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, urging her NOT to include mass amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the country.  She won’t listen.  
  79. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The Biden regime is threatening a new round of lockdowns and restrictions if more Americans don’t rush out and get vaccinated against the Chi-Vi.   Last week, there was mention of the NEW Lambda variant out of Peru being worse than the Delta variant and then within a day, all talk of the Lambda variant (SARS-CoV-2) vanished out of the window, and it was back to pounding the Delta drums.   Amazing how the libs continue guiding all talk on the Chi-Vi and how everyone must rush out and get vaccinated.  Funny that there are more infections among VACCINATED Americans than among unvaccinated.  Something ain’t right here, folks.   Add to that the fact that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says that mRNA vaccines for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu could be approved for widespread use by next month.  Pushing, pushing, pushing!
  80. 2021 Saturday I: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3582 what with a $12 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 16, 18, 30, 32, 38, and Mega 05.  Out of 97,148 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,413 apiece.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #868 with a jackpot of $199 million up for grabs: 01, 21, 22, 34, 47, and Powerball 04.  Out of 83,515 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $44,999.
  81. 2022 Sunday: IF things do not change over the next two election cycles, we may need to become friendly with the Chi-Coms.  I remember when the country was committed to being the best whereas now, we are ripping ourselves apart, thanks in large part to Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, and other of our enemies’ machinations.  Race is the Achilles heel of the United States and if our enemies continue noodling away at the seams, at some point, the nation is going to explode.  Add to that the fact that we cannot trust our elected leaders who all seem to be in the pay of Beijing and one can see the old maxim is true: the capitalists will sell the communists the rope with which the communists hang the capitalists.  Personally, I think it’s too late and my family and I are considering relocating to Ireland as a safe haven from the looming storm.  What is the point in remaining in country that is ripping itself to shreds?  Let me know what you all think.  Thanks- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0908 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Central Coast.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After the Beach Boys went through starts and fits back in the 1960s over Brian Wilson’s “Smile” project, an abbreviated form “Smiley Smile” hit record store shelves on September 16, 1967 (see Monday, May 23, 2022) and since it was nowhere near the project envisioned by composer Brian Wilson, it was considered a flop.  Well, years later, Brian Wilson said, “Screw it,” and relaunched the entire project with a series of live performances and a live album culled from the performance.  “Brian Wilson Presents Smile” came out on September 28, 2004, and is a mind-blowing, joyous project to behold.  NO ONE in his, her, or its right mind questions the fact that Brian Wilson is not an innovative, musical genius, certainly not anyone with sufficient gray matter, that’s for sure.  We hope you will seek this album out and that you will add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended music- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[iv] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[v] Hillary was raising money for a long, long time.  Too bad she wasn’t a better candidate and too bad Barack Hussein Obama didn’t do a better job of helping her.

[vi] Both of President Donald J. Trump’s two court picks Neil Gorsuch (#113) and Brett Kavanaugh (#114) have voted against the president who nominated them more often than they have not- just like Associate Justice Kennedy!  What is it about Republican picks?

[vii] Regarding the Russians and election interference, what the f**k else is new?  They have been doing this sort of crap since Josef Stalin was running the country.

211. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JULY 30, 2022

2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out. Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur. In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.

  58. 2019 Tuesday: Law enforcement in California released information on the shooter at the Gilroy Garlic Festival- 19-year-old Santino William Legan- the punk who murdered three people before the police shot the POS dead (gotta love the cops!). Apparently, the punk posted white supremacist text messages and racist content before he embarked on his shooting spree. Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate failed to override President Donald J. Trump’s vetoes on bills blocking arms sales to Saudi Arabia.  Politicians are angry over the murder of the journalist Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey.
  59. 2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out. Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur. In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama- in his eulogy for deceased Rep. John Lewis, D-GA, lambastes President Trump for trying to steal the election, using voter intimidation and manipulation and God knows what other bull crap the former president could yank out of his mind and the attendees at the funeral, none of whom were sitting six-feet apart, leapt to their feet and applauded insanely for what seemed like hours.   Will Democrats NEVER continue trying to steal elections?  Enough is flipping enough, already, folks.  Finally, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather Pizza and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies at age 74 from the Bat Virus sent around the world by the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Bat Flu:

[x]        
  68. 2021 Friday E: S.

[xi] Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.940.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Burundi: $4.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,583,734,946,871 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  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 Poland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Philippines with $43 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  69. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, the days continue passing us by and lo and behold, today is Day No. 129 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 35 since her one and only visit to the region. Speaking of the regime for which the border czar labors, the Department of Justice is suing Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, for his order to HALT all further ground transportation of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State. Of course, the DOJ cannot have a governor fighting back but legal eagles say the Lone Star State’s case is going to be hard to topple.   
  70. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News compiles the HONEST-TO-GOD numbers of the costs and numbers surrounding our illegal alien invasion and today is NO different. First, here is the cost for just this flipping day: $585,147,264.  Imagine all the good that money could do for the American people and lo and behold, it’s going to care for noncitizens who do not deserve to be here and who must be rounded up, imprisoned in the absolute worst conditions, deprogrammed to want to come here a la “A Clockwork Orange,” and then deported via any means available.  How about we ship them to communist China?  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the invaders: $230,722,174,976.    So much money going down the crapper, folks; we must round up all of them- including the DREAMERS and any other foals calved here and ship them back NOW.  Third, here is the number of estimated illegals who have swamped the U.S. in 2021 alone: 2,364,717.  Finally, here is the fourth and final statistic, the number of illegal aliens estimated to be running amok across the United States: 36,364,710.  Remember, this is a CONSERVATIVE NUMBER.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an invasion army already living in our midst.  Time to exercise the 2nd Amendment…(to protect ourselves).
  71. 2021 Friday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have joined forces to demand the Biden regime awaken to the dangers of unchecked mass immigration into the United States from nearly 160 nations around the globe. Entire neighborhoods and towns are being overrun with illegal aliens and people are beginning to fight back and to end this unconstitutional mess.
  72. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden continues playing pocket pool in the White House basement, national security experts are growing concerned over the Chi-Coms ramped up silo-building. Silos are where intercontinental ballistic missiles- ICBMs- reside and it’s clear the Chi-Coms are constructing them like flies have maggots. We believe it may be time to launch a pre-emptive strike on the Chi-Coms before they go to war against the Free World.
  73. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Yesterday, Il Duce Joe Biden said that ALL federal employees and contractors will be required to get vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu or face never-ending mask-wearing, 2-3, perhaps even 4 tests a week (could be anal ones like the Chi-Coms favor for all international travelers) as well as being prohibited from traveling for job-related matters. Thus, the American Fuhrer has spoken. Yet, we learn that in places such as Massachusetts where a major outbreak of the Chi-Com Yellow Fever is underway, there seems to be a pandemic of the vaccinated, NOT the vaccinated as the liberal goobers claim.  Hence why NONE of us are going to get vaccinated for this bogus virus crisis (we have urgent care centers willing to dish out hydroxychloroquine tablets and vitamin D injections).   Yesterday, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, put forth a bill which will hold the Centers for Disease Control accountable for all the lies and propaganda they continue spewing on the Chi-Vi.
  74. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Broadway is mandating that all behind-the-scenes personnel as well as performers AND all attendees wear masks as well as present proof of vaccination. Uh, okay. Speaking of mass mask stupidity, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says ‘it’s amazing: right across the hall in the U.S. Senate, NO MASKS.’  It’s as if by magic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu has snared approximately 2 million Americans in a passport backlog.  Next, the House GOP is demanding that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and other top COVID-19 scientists testify on the Hill.   Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘Pelosi’s mask mandates are a massive overreach of her powers.’
  75. 2021 Friday L: Joe Biden News I– While Joe Biden was at some function, people noticed he had a yellow booger hanging off his chin, something of which, he was unaware. One of his aides, however, rushed to his side, handed him a note saying, ‘something’s on your chin.’ He wiped the snot off and according to some either stuck it in his mouth as though he were still in kindergarten (in his mind, he seemingly still is) or wiped it on the tabletop.  Either way, he remains our national disgrace and humiliation.  In other Joe Biden news, he took a BIG ONE on the chin when House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was unable to prevent the evictions moratorium collapse as of tomorrow morning.  It looks like the mentally decrepit, nonagenarian speaker is folding like a deck of cards. 
  76. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Department of Justice says that the Internal Revenue Service MUST hand President Donald J. Trump’s tax records over to the angry Democrat goons in the U.S. House of Representatives.
  77. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that the ‘nursing home probe into deaths in New York’ caused by the indifference or worse, by design of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov ‘should continue.’ Elsewhere, new polling out of Wyoming shows that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large congressional district, is in deep, deep trouble with the voters. She deserves it.  Next, we continue to learn about the duplicitous activities of the Catholic Charities spreading illegal aliens across the United States regardless as to whether they have the Chi-Vi or other diseases or not.  This is not good and it causing many of our Catholic members to lapse in their church support.   Finally, the Wisconsin Republicans are working at expanding the state’s 2020 Election probe.  Good for them.
  78. 2021 Friday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1681 what with a $166 million jackpot on the line: 19, 26, 31, 52, 68, and Mega 10. Out of 77,695 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $568 apiece.2022 Saturday: Hubbub continues from Tuesday’s extremely peculiar and wholly unnatural ‘speech’ by slobbering Joe Biden, you know, the one where he mumbled and stumbled through his verbal assault on President Donald J. Trump with his unblinking eyes wide open.  It’s as if he has a ‘Dr. Morrell’ in his employ, the doctor who ‘treated’ Adolf Hitler throughout the war years.  Dr. Morrell used to inject the Fuhrer with all manner of things such as vitamins, methamphetamine, even bull semen, to make his Fuhrer less crazy and more in control, none of which worked.  The Joe Biden ‘speech’ made me think of one of those ‘G.I. Joe’ movies where America’s enemies replaced the president with a look-alike clone.  It also makes me think of those lifelike dolls the Japanese use as sexual partners, whatever drooling Joe is doing, I doubt it’s truly him.  We have never been in a situation such as this.  Let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

The next studio album from Beach Boys genius, Brian Wilson- “Gettin’ In Over My Head”- came out on June 22, 2004.  Like Pete Townsend and his “Lighthouse” project that never made it to completion, Brian Wilson was working on two different projects during the 1990s, both of which never made it to fruition.  The music was there and he went back and reworked it and brought it to the public in all its radiant glory.  Brian Wilson’s band of musicians joined him as did four big guests, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, and Carl Wilson as well as other studio hotshots brought in to help him finish the project.  Fans raved over the album as do we which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out wherever it is they shop for the absolute best in music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

206. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JULY 25, 2022

2022 Monday: As the Voice of Occupied Los Angeles, California, a place overrun with illegal aliens, gangbangers, corrupt politicians, and liberal losers, let me ask a pertinent question: could Joe Biden’s feebleness be the result of long-term syphilis? Everyone knows that back in the day, not only did Senator Teddy Kennedy- aka, the “Lion of the Senate”- but so did good buddies, Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Joe Biden. Leave it to some losers like Dr. Jill to push her mentally disabled husband into a position of power that he cannot hope to ever have a grip on. Dr. Jill should be in prison and her husband in the loony bin for old gropers and hair-sniffers.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 308,320 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 95,758 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  82. 2021 Sunday 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 by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.328 per gallon, $2.969 in Florida, $4.077 in Hawaii, and $3.837 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Georgia: $2.968.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Dominican Republic: $4.501 per U.S. Gallon. [xix] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,565,021,806,001 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xx]  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 Thailand, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  83. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 124 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border crisis and Day No. 30 since her one and only visit to the border.  One America News compiles a running tally of the crisis down there, a tally we gladly share with our readers who don’t watch the network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens: $721,816,512.  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for all the noncitizens in the country: $225,379,401,728.  Third, here is the number of illegals estimated to have crossed the country just this year: 2,309,958.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the number of illegals currently residing in the country: 36,309,960.  We say this every day that when the AICPENDBLOG.COM began tapping out blogposts back in the spring of 2009, we estimated the numbers then at between 35-50 million illegals and everyone jeered at our estimates.  Thus, we did the digging and now, we believe the numbers to be closer to 75-100 million, an unsustainable number if ever one existed.  It is what it is, we guess.
  84. 2022 Monday: As the Voice of Occupied Los Angeles, California, a place overrun with illegal aliens, gangbangers, corrupt politicians, and liberal losers, let me ask a pertinent question: could Joe Biden’s feebleness be the result of long-term syphilis?  Everyone knows that back in the day, not only did Senator Teddy Kennedy- aka, the “Lion of the Senate”- but so did good buddies, Senators Chris Dodd of Connecticut and Joe Biden.  Leave it to some losers like Dr. Jill to push her mentally disabled husband into a position of power that he cannot hope to ever have a grip on.  Dr. Jill should be in prison and her husband in the loony bin for old gropers and hair-sniffers. 

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

[i] We began promoting the music of Santana on Tuesday, 28-August-2012 through Tuesday, 23-October-2012.  We hope you will seek the music of this famed man and his band out wherever you can find them.

[ii] Not sure as to when we will get around to doing the music of Uriah Heep but we hope to do it at the same time we promote the music of Hawkwind.  We hope you will remain alert as to the day that we do.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will begin promoting the music of Bob Dylan but one day, we sure heck we do.  Stay tuned.

[iv] We should have promoted the music of Eric Clapton when we did the music of both Cream and the Yardbirds, but we failed to do so.  We hope to do it extremely soon so please remain vigilant for the day we do.  We thank you.

[v] 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.    The “White Album” appeared on Thursday, 24-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vi] The so-called “Lion of the Senate,” Teddy Kennedy, a Democrat, was little more than a sexual deviate and a murderer.

[viii] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[ix] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  At the time however, we overlooked presenting the music of the group’s individual members- Mick Fleetwood, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan, Jeremy Spencer, Bob Welch, Lindsay Buckingham, and Stevie Nicks.  We hope to do that at some point in the near future.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

  48. 2007 Tuesday: In Libya, the five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian P.A. that were condemned to death for having- supposedly given Libyan children HIV-AIDS on purpose- are leaving the country for Sofia after the Bulgarian government negotiated with the Libyan government to secure their release.  Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin wags his finger at the Brits by accusing them of ‘colonialist thinking’ in their demands for the extradition of Andrei Lugovoy whom the Brits claim is the alleged murderer of former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko who was living in their country.
  49. 2008 Thursday: In Berlin, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, gives a speech at the Victory Column that draws more than 200,000 people, the most he’s drawn at any time during his campaign to win the White House.  (It was reminiscent of speeches given by the Fuhrer back in the day with Germans more or less doing the raised arm salutes so popular back in the day.  Obama should be so proud).
  50. 2009 Friday: Trying to tamp down a national uproar over race, President Barack Hussein Obama acknowledged using unfortunate words in declaring that Cambridge, Mass., police had “acted stupidly” in arresting black scholar Henry Louis “Skip” Gates Jr. adding he’d invited the Harvard professor and Sgt. James Crowley, the arresting officer, for “a beer here in the White House,” the so-called “Beer Summit.”  This would become the norm for the Obama administration as he inserted himself into every racial incident over the course of his eight years in office, of which there would be many.
  51. 2010 Saturday:  Rallies to release Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian woman facing execution for adultery, occur in Paris, New York City, Ottawa, and elsewhere.  Elsewhere, the U.S. and South Korea commence carrying out military exercises with tens of thousands of troops, numerous naval vessels, and warplanes as a show of force to the North Koreans who are always talking crap.  The North wants to start something so badly
  52. 2011 Sunday:  Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi appoints Hisham Qandil as Prime Minister and asks him to form a new government.  Elsewhere- in Farmington, Missouri- longtime member of the rock band, America[vii], Dan Peek (guitars/bass/keyboards/vocals), died at age 60 in his sleep from fibrinous pericarditis.  Meanwhile, as Democrats continue trying to raise the debt ceiling so they can spend more and more, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says that his boss- President Barack Hussein Obama- won’t invoke the U.S. Constitution and unilaterally raise it himself. 
  53. 2012 Tuesday: Vice-President John Dramani Mahama becomes President of Ghana after President John Atta Mills, dies.  Elsewhere, USA Today reports the discovery of four barrels containing 248 human fetuses in the Sverdlovsk Oblast region.  An abortionist run amok.
  54. 2013 Wednesday: NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden remains in Moscow, Russia; he is stranded at Russia’s Sheremetyevo International Airport.  Elsewhere in the world, things continue going from bad to worse in Mexico.  In the state of Michoacan, federal law enforcement officers engage in a running gun battle with members of the Knights Templar drug cartel.  At least two officers are killed and 20 narcoterrorists.  Clever work, federales. 
  55. 2014 Thursday:  Arseny Yatseniuk, prime minister of Ukraine, submits his resignation in frustration over inaction of the parliament to address energy needs and military funding.  Meanwhile, a convoy carrying prisoners in northern Iraq comes under attack by jihadist thugs.  In the ensuing melee, 52 prisoners and eight Iraq government guards are killed and loads of others wounded. 
  56. 2015 Friday: After two researchers hack wirelessly into a Fiat-Chrysler automobile, 10 miles away, which enabled them to control the brakes and steering, the auto company recalls 1.4 million vehicles.  This ‘hack’ causes numerous other automakers concern that the same thing can happen to their automobiles.  Meanwhile, U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama[viii] returns to his home country of Kenya to begin a historic two-day visit.
  57. 2016 Sunday: The International Olympic Committee announces it won’t fully ban Russia for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro over repeated violations over doping.   The World Anti-Doping Agency or WADA called for a complete ban but the IOC says it will permit some Russian athletes to participate in the games.  Meanwhile, California continues to burn as the Sand Fire outside Santa Clarita, California, has doubled in size to 22,000 acres with no end in sight.  IF only Democratic leadership would maintain the forests and begin building new reservoirs to hold water, so much could be changed in the Golden State.   The Dems won’t do it.
  58. 2017 Monday: In a speech to a national Boy Scout gathering in West Virginia, President Donald J. Trump railed against his enemies and promoted his political agenda, bringing an angry reaction from some parents and former Scouts from both parties.  Oh, boo f**king hoo.  Democrats always attack their enemies, whether from the pulpits of black churches, in schools, in speeches, and everywhere else they can.  What a load of crap.
  59. 2018 Tuesday: Near Athens, Greece, swift-moving wildfires, blamed on out-of-control global warming, continue wreaking havoc across the region killing 91, injuring 104, and causing another 600 to flee into the water being rescued by boats.   Meanwhile, following a drug overdose, singer Demi Lovato[ix] finds herself in the hospital.  Elsewhere, the Syrians are down a jet after one crossed into Israeli-controlled Golan Heights and the Israeli Defense Force shot it down.  
  60. 2019 Wednesday: Senile Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III- struggling to speak and forgetting where he’s at in a sentence- reports to the U.S. Senate that ‘President Donald J. Trump was NOT cleared of obstruction of justice charges and reiterates that Russia did indeed interfere in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.’  Millions of Americans find it both shameful and personally embarrassing that the Democrats continue trotting this old fogey out to continue trying to tarnish the 45th president.  Send the old man to a rest home already.   Meanwhile, Europe is best with its hottest ever recorded temperatures causing Greta Thunberg to rush into the bunker.  In Germany, thermometers hit 104.9° F while in the Netherlands, temps hit 102.5° F which is a typical summer’s day in California.  Ah, well, we understand their anguish because we have air conditioning, and they mostly don’t.  No wonder Europeans hate America.
  61. 2020 Friday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,628,936 confirmed cases, UP by 310,939 cases, 636,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,410 deaths, and 8.917,141 confirmed recoveries, UP by 195,726 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,179,560 confirmed cases, UP by 79,759 new cases, 147,534 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,239 new deaths, and 1,252,170 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,537 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  62. 2020 Friday A: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 435,334 confirmed cases, UP 7,718, 8,186 confirmed deaths, UP by 159, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,490 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,125 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 50,009 confirmed cases, 1,482 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  63. 2020 Friday B: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,469.89, DOWN 182.44 points (-0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,363.18, DOWN 98.24 points (-0.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,215.63, DOWN 20.03 points (-0.62%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.30 per troy oz., +2.80 (+0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $22.98 per troy ounce, +0.125 (+0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $955.40 per troy oz, -1.00 (-0.10) while the price of COPPER is $2.89 per pound, +0.002 (+0.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.34 per barrel, +0.05 (+0.12%).
  64. 2020 Friday C: President Donald J. Trump signed four executive orders designed to lower drug prices for all Americans.  As things have stood for decades, Americans are screwed on health care costs because allied and other nations enjoy cheaper, more reasonable costs for their prescription drugs.  The first order would permit importation of medications from countries where the costs are more reasonable and realistic.  A nation such as Canada would be among the prime countries of export.  Another executive order removes the huge profits wholesalers enjoy- so-called middlemen- by slashing them to much more reasonable amounts.  The third order would cut the costs of insulin while the fourth would force the federal government to buy drugs for Medicare at the lower costs they are in other countries.  Now, how about allowing ALL health care providers to compete in every state as well as to offer a wider variety of plans addressing all needs of all Americans?  That would be amazing.  
  65. 2020 Friday D: Communist China orders the U.S. to close its consulate in Chengdu as retaliation for the U.S. order to them to close their spy hub in Houston.  The Chin swear they are not going to leave the Houston, Texas, consulate but they need to get their s**t and get the hell out of the country.  All U.S. personnel in communist China should come home…NOW.
  66. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 194,410,034 confirmed cases, +57,040, 4,168,451 confirmed deaths, +11,198 and 176,469,967 confirmed recoveries, +49,184.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,184,261 confirmed cases, DOWN 84,993 from yesterday’s reporting, 626,713 confirmed deaths, UP 127, [x] and 29,478,173 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,950.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [xi]  
  67. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 308,271 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 95,807 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xii]    
  69. 2021 Saturday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 859,398 confirmed cases, 6,458 confirmed deaths, and 841,769 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Aruba, 158th country on the list: 11,063 cases of the virus, 109 confirmed deaths and 11,466 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]     
  70. 2021 Saturday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,823.55, UP 238.20 points (+0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,836.99, UP 152.39 points (+1.04%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,411.79, UP 44.31 points (+1.01%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.17 per barrel, +0.10 (+0.42%).  The price of GOLD is $1,802.10 per troy oz., +0.30 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.24 per troy ounce, +0.01 (+0.03%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,059.10 per troy oz, -2.30 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, +0.05 (+1.25%).

[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000029.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.     In East Caribbean Dollar, one greenback equals 2.69 and in Ecuadoran Sucre, a buck equals 25,083.49 and in Egyptian Pound, one dollar equals 15.63 of theirs. [xvii]        
  71. 2021 Saturday 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 by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.325 per gallon, $2.969 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.834 in Washington state. [xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Delaware: $2.991.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Mauritius: $4.497 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,556,382,310,872 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  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 Norway, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  72. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 123 for the now-infamous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and to have visited it just one- 29 days ago.  How about that for commitment to the job?  She needs to go.  Here are today’s stats as presented by One America News[xxi] regarding the illegal alien invasion: first, the cost this day of caring for all these illegals is $582,445,632.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the world’s garbage: $224,144,146,432.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have entered the U.S. just this year- that we know of: 2,297,298.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals living in the country as we speak: 36,297,296.  Twelve years ago, we said the numbers were around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport all of them now- including the DREAMERS.
  73. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Two days before a U.S. delegation is set to arrive in communist China, the Chi-Coms slap sanctions on several Americans just to show they can do it.  Elsewhere, as more and more Americans demand the Biden regime do something to help the Cuban people, our esteemed U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken makes the surprisingly stupid statement that it appears that ‘U.S. sanctions on Cuba are not working.’  Do you think?   However, the American people plan to show support for the oppressed Cuban people as a flotilla of small vessels is departing Florida’s waters to arrive 12 miles from the Cuban coast to shoot off fireworks to show support for the Cuban people and hopefully to help some who make a bid or freedom.
  74. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Meanwhile, following the embarrassment the Chi-Coms inflicted on the U.S. by slapping sanctions on U.S. citizens, the Biden ‘state department’ is going to send a delegation to Russia to ‘talk nukes.’  How about talking about them with the frigging Chi-Coms?  Elsewhere, now that the United States has cut and run from Afghanistan, the U.S. and Iraq are negotiating a troop withdrawal by January 2022.  Since George W. Bush f**ked up Iraq and destabilized the Middle East, may as well allow Iran to absorb the country.
  75. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA, says that EVERYONE in the state must wear masks regardless of their vaccination status.  Oh, goody.  Meanwhile, in a big win for Florida, the Centers for Disease Control tosses mask regulation on cruise ships.   Elsewhere, the Democrats who fled Texas for Washington, D.C., and who took the Chi-Vi with them say they ‘don’t feel bad about causing a super-spreader event.   That’s Democrats for you, they don’t have consciences.  Sad to say but true.  In other ‘VID news, liberals are celebrating the fact that unvaccinated conservative talk show radio host Phil Valentine- someone who questioned the efficacy and the need for a Chi-Vi vaccine- is in the hospital…with COVID-19.
  76. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– Michigan lawmakers vote to strip Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of her dictatorial COVID-19 powers.  Good.  Now recall the skank.  Speaking of killer governors, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is calling on the Department of Justice to probe Joe Biden’s role in covering up Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s nursing home massacres.  Everyone wants to know this.  Sadly, the U.S. Department of Justice declines investigating massive nursing home deaths in four big Democratic states: New York, Michigan, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  Each of the governors in these states must go on trial and if convicted go to prison for the untold suffering and countless deaths they have caused.
  77. 2021 Saturday K: Political News II– A new poll shows that Joe Biden is losing major support in 85 battleground districts.  A poll claims his approval ratings still stand around 50-percent, but everyone understands that this is FAKE NEWS.  Meanwhile, never afraid to call it the way he sees it, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says that ‘the White House and BIG TECH are colluding to silence conservative speech.’  Tell us about it.   Moving on, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that the ‘infrastructure bill is biased toward Democrat-controlled cities’ meaning they are going to get the big bucks and the money-go-round will continue…unabated.  Elsewhere, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that- get this, the same things were said when Barack Hussein Obama was president back in, uh, 2010, we think- ‘irreparable harm will happen to the United States if we don’t raise the debt ceiling.’  Oh, STFU already.  No wonder our country is going down the crapper.
  78. 2021 Saturday L: Political News III– Diamond and Silk- two strong black female voices- said of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci that he is the ‘new Reverend Jim Jones.’  For all you millennials, look him up.  Last year, the dynamic duo was booted from Fox News Channel for criticizing the creepy little doctor but folks, they are right on.  Right on.  First, “Phony Tony” said NO masks were needed, then he said masks, then he said two masks, then he said maybe goggles, then that one disappeared, then he said three masks and it goes on and on and on…
  79. 2021 Saturday M: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3580 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 19, 27, 40, and Mega 08.  Out of 98,557 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $32,534.  The winning ticket was sold at Kym Café in Garden Grove, CA 92843.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #866 with a jackpot of $186 million up for grabs:  01, 04, 11, 59, 67, and Powerball 10.  Out of 76,367 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $39,281 apiece.
  80. 2021 Saturday N- One Year Ago Today: As you know, we never wish negative on anyone, as you know, we are rooting for Joe Biden to wake up from his senility and to begin doing the work of the American people rather than talking crazy about white supremacism, racism, and the cops.  We would like to see the ‘Joe of Old’ and not this stooge of Xi Jinping ransacking the country.  We can find out together- Chef Charles Smithenstein.
  81. 2022 Sunday: The left continues the lie of the planet ending soon unless we give government the power of life and death over all of us to stop climate change.  Folks, back in the day- the 1970s- Democrats were doom and gloom that another ice age was coming and woe to everyone on the planet.  We live in a dynamic world, we work hard at conserving resources while generating new ones and if we kowtow to the f**king Democrats, our planet will die because once we remove all forms of CO2, we will witness all flora die and if all flora dies, so will all faunae.  These people are ignorant dimwits screaming and crying so they can attain power now and keep it.  Time to destroy every Democrat come November and in every subsequent election along with their RINO stooges.  An ass-whooping is on the way…Chef Elvin C. McCardle.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0901 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Cayucos.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

As longtime fans of the Beach Boys, if there’s ONE thing that we never understood is WHY the Beach Boys did NOT release more live albums?  Back in the day, the Rolling Stones released a live album after most of their mid-1970s releases (well, it seemed that way whereas now, they have so many live albums, it’s difficult to count) whereas the Beach Boys gave us an early live album followed by “In Concert” and “Live in London.”  We have a bootleg from back in the day featuring the lineup that made “Sunflower” and “Surf’s Up,” called “Re-Surfin’ USA,” an album one can find at RZ Record albeit under a different name- “Surf’s Up in Princeton,” recorded live in New York back in 1971, albeit currently unavailable.  Still, the Beach Boys gave us “Good Timin’: Live at Knebworth, England 1980.”  This is a great album, not as good as “In Concert” because the band has reverted back to its earlier sound for the oldies but goodies.  Also, they leave off “Good Timin’” which sure the hell should have been included on this album.  There are 22 tunes here that run the gamut of the group’s career and which features the six main Beach Boys- Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson, Alan Jardine, Mike Love, and Bruce Johnston- together live.  We hope you will seek this album out and add it to your daily listening pleasure.  We contend you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] It would appear the Department of War would become the first victim of political correctness.

[ii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iv] 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.

[v] We hope to share the music of Little Richard one day.  Not sure as to when, however.

[vi] Not sure when we will do the music of Judas Priest- if ever.

[vii] Not sure as to when we will do the music of America but please stay tuned.

[viii] 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.

[ix] We won’t be doing the music of this skank unless the blog site is still here in 50 years.

200. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 19, 2022

2022 Tuesday: Here is another thought- those of us who live under the despotic rule of Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom cannot wait to see the ads that “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis will drop on our bozo chief executive come late October. Gov. Newsom is such a worthless POS that he deserves ridicule and derision from everyone. The man is so flipping stupid not to comprehend that he is a target-rich environment when it comes being trolled. It’s going to be fun. Chef E.C. McCardle.

Trump announces another trip to the border, the screeching night bird will schedule another quickie stop so as to make it appear as though she is doing something.  What a pathetic loser.
  74. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the latest numbers on the costs and the numbers associated with the massive pandemic of illegal alien invaders earlier today.  First, here is the Cost This Day of caring for the illegal vermin flooding our country: $584,741,376.  Imagine what this money could do for the homeless, the addicted, the mentally ill, and for veterans and minorities.  Alas, the Democrats would rather waste it on their new ‘class of slaves,’ the illegal aliens.  Second, here is the Cost This Year of caring for the illegal alien pests flooding into the country: $218,666,975,232.  Let us ask our black fellow Americans a question: WOULD you rather see this money distributed to you as reparations for slavery or would you rather it go to people who have no business being here, people who take YOUR jobs, drive up the costs of rents, mortgages, groceries, and who clog YOUR schools and hospitals?   Think about it and let us know.  Third, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals who have flooded the United States just this year: 2,241,161.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the numbers of illegals clogging the shadows of the country: 36,241,160.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Folks, it is interesting to note that the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day said back in 2009 when we wrote for Choseit.com that the numbers of illegal aliens then were between 35-50 million.  After our move to Google Blogger in late 2010, we continued with this number whereas now, we believe that the TRUE number of illegal aliens in this country now rests at between 75-100 million.  Time for someone to begin handing out illegal alien hunting licenses…
  75. 2021 Monday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Scott L. Fitzgerald, R-WI 5th congressional district, says that control of the border will weaken even more sans the Title 42 protections that allow the U.S. government to reject illegal aliens consumed by disease.   In other troubling illegal alien news, Tucker Carlson reported on his show- Tucker Carlson Tonight- that while the Democrats continue seeding illegal aliens across the interior of the United States using military airfields as their way stations, the Republicans either tacitly approve of the actions or remain mum.  This is not good and it must stop.  Chef Lilah on Maui has reported that a family member who works in Honolulu at the airport reports that twice a month, airliners come in, dump illegal alien brats on the tarmac who are then redistributed around the islands.  Not good.
  76. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As the Cuban people continue demanding freedom from the communist tyranny under which they have suffered for 62 years, dingbats like Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, the one they call “AOC,” continue to support the communist regime.   Meanwhile, Canada says it will ‘open the border to U.S. citizens next month who can prove they have been vaccinated.’  Big whoop.   Elsewhere, in Japan, a court handed down prison sentences to the father and son team who enabled Carlos Ghosn- big automobile CEO- to escape corruption charges against him.  The father, Michael Taylor, got two years in a Japanese slammer while the son- Peter- received 20 months. 
  77. 2021 Monday J: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Xi Jinping of the Chi-Coms warned Japan today that if the Japanese come to the aid of Taiwan- aka FREE CHINA- they will ‘nuke them off the face of the Earth.’  How nice.  Let’s launch a pre-emptive strike on not just the Chi-Coms but on the Russians, Iranians, Cubans, and Venezuelans.  Drooling Joe Biden, NUKE THEM NOW.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, we learn today that their hackers- Red Patriots as they call them- openly advertise their capabilities on Chi-Com TV.  All the more reason to nuke these scumbags off the face of the planet.  Elsewhere, we learn today that Israeli spyware- Pegasus- is being used around the world to target journalists and activists. 
  78. 2021 Monday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the Biden regime continues floundering about trying to find ways to shame the American people into falling into step and getting the Yellow Flu vaccines that six months ago, they told us we would be fools to get, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control, is going to adopt Critical Race Theory (Criminal Race Theory in reality) rhetoric to try to shame the American people into getting this crap.  Look, the Biden regime is going to toss Title 42- the portion of the immigration laws that allows the U.S. to deny entry to sick illegal aliens- so if millions of untested and unvaccinated illegals can pour into the country, why the f**k should we rush out and get the vaccines?  Furthermore, anyone stupid enough to come to the door trying to give us the vaccine is either going to get an ass-whipping they won’t soon forget or is going to get shot.   (Note- our very own Chef Bea O’Malley, a woman of color, has said repeatedly that every time white liberals encourage black Americans to do something ‘for their own good,’ it never works out well for them so stop pushing the crap already).
  79. 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of the aforementioned Centers for Disease Control, a pediatrics group is openly contradicting CDC guidelines by saying ALL children and staff should wear masks in schools.   Along similar lines, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Sheriff Alex Villanueva says he will NOT enforce the unscientific mandates recently slapped back on the people.’  Elsewhere, regarding the rising numbers of the Chi-Vi, two-thirds of Japan’s citizenry fear hosting the Summer Olympic Games as scheduled.   Meanwhile, a British health official reports that 40-PERCENT of serious cases of the Wuhan Flu that end up in the hospital are people who have been fully vaccinated.   So reported Tucker Carlson tonight.
  80. 2021 Monday M: Health and Medical Alerts– Reimposed mask mandates send the wrong message on Chi-Com Dink-a-Link vaccines.   Elsewhere, now that the CDC has found a judge that allowed them to slap mask mandates back on the cruise line industry, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis vows to take the fight to end mask mandates on the cruise lines to the United States Supreme Court.  Excellent.
  81. 2021 Monday N: Joe Biden News I– After being blasted 24/7 over the weekend for his comments pertaining to Facebook KILLING people through the misinformation, they continue publishing on how great the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines are, the drooling Oval Office usurper is toning down his rhetoric.   (Note- the same maxim holds true here as it did when print media was honest and powerful: Joe, don’t pick fights with people or entities who buy ‘ink’ by the barrel meaning that Mark “F**k” Zuckerberg, his allies Jack “Dingleberry” Dorsey at Twitter and other BIG TECH connivers can do you immense harm just as they did President Donald J. Trump.
  82. 2021 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Joe Biden regime is transferring the first Gitmo detainee out of the POW camp to Morocco.  How about we plant a tracking chip in the scumbag and then ‘drone him?’  Meanwhile, the Biden regime vows that the Department of Justice will contest the recent federal court ruling that tossed out the unconstitutional DACA program.  Go for it.  We hope every DACA recipient is rounded up, imprisoned, and then when transport becomes available, they are dumped back into Central America or from wherever else they might have come.
  83. 2021 Monday P: Political News I– Besides costing Democratic-Socialists $1.5 million for their run to the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., last week so as to avoid doing their duty in the Lone Star State, the Democrats who left Texas also took at least FIVE cases of the Chinese Virus with them to the District of Columbia thus making it a ‘super-spreader event.’  They are no different than ‘Covid Corey’ who gave the Chi-Vi to all the fruits on Fire Island last summer.  Shame on YOU.  Next, as the Democratic-Socialists continue trying to re-jigger last year’s 2020 Elections results, a new ‘study’ now says that polling institutes OVERESTIMATED support for BOTH Republicans and President Donald J. Trump so as to justify that ‘he didn’t win’ which is bullshit. 
  84. 2021 Monday Q: Political News II– Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large congressional district, says that the ‘Dems are out to control voting in the United States via the infrastructure bill.’  Remember, the ONLY way the Democrats were able to push through Obamacare was by attaching to a budget bill that had already passed.  Otherwise, that crap bill would NEVER have passed.  The Dems are trying to do it again via budget reconciliation.   Senator Amy “The Schnoz” Klobuchar- failed Democratic-Socialist presidential candidate from Minnesota- says that ‘voting is indeed part of infrastructure.’  NOT the way you envision it, “Schnoz.”
  85. 2021 Monday R: Political News III– Liberal groups are trying to target Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, in 2022 by re-jiggering statements he made about January 06, 2021, i.e., the FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS carried out by the Democratic-Socialists under the command of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Speaking of the ‘Capitol Hill Riots’ of that ill-fated day back in January, the Capitol Hill Police hired a new chief today, one who will be subservient to Massa Nancy.  In other related news, one of the first ‘Capitol Hill Riots’ rioters just received an 8-month sentence in a D.C. slammer for having made it inside the Capitol Building on that brisk January day.   Finally, in other political news, Rep. Brendan Boyle, DS-PA 2nd congressional district, introduced a resolution that would prohibit President Donald J. Trump from becoming speaker of the House.
  86. 2021 Monday S: Political News IV– Tucker Carlson reported this evening that a Department of Justice presentation obtained by Fox News Channel has identified the THREE MAJOR CAUSES of inner-city violence.  What he found surprised the hell out of us just as it will you: the three causes of inner-city shootings and killings are (1) WHITE SUPREMACISM (2) RACISM and (3) THE COPS.  Wow.  Very Orwellian if you ask us.  In other political news, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, has named FIVE Republicans to the House Select Committee on the ’causes’ behind the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021, i.e., the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION IN THE HISTORY OF THE COUNTRY: (1) Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district and ranking member; (2) Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district; (3) Rep. Rodney Davis, R-IL 13th congressional district; (4) Rep. Kelly Armstrong, R-ND At-Large congressional district; and (5) Rep. Troy Nehls, R-TX 22nd congressional district.   (Note- it appears that Leader McCarthy lacked the balls to put Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, and/or Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, on the committee.  We know what we’ll get.
  87. 2021 Monday T: Business News– After OPEC and their allies agreed to increase production, global oil prices began to fall.   Elsewhere, art critic Sebastian Smee recently said of Hunter Biden’s artworks that the crap is ‘not worth more than $1,000.’  Hunter should go on the Starving Artists tour.  In other business news, Delaware just guaranteed the loss of jobs by raising the state’s minimum wage to $15 per hour. 
  88. 2021 Monday U:  Economic News– As fears of new Chi-Vi eruptions around the country continue to grow, the stock market took another massive slide today mirroring last week’s massive losses on Friday.  We predicted back in January that by late summer/early fall, the markets would be in the tank.  Whether or not this happens, we stand with what we said.   In other fascinating news, freedom-fighter journalist Glen Greenwald says that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is raking in millions on companies SHE regulates through Congress.  Wow.  And they were angry at the Reddit users making a killing off GameStop stocks.   Finally, a new poll says that 88-percent of the American people are growing increasingly concerned over the rising cost of living.
  89. 2021 Monday V: Big Tech News– Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says that Democrats and Big Tech are working hard at creating a symbiotic relationship between Democratic-Socialists and BIG TECH.  The Democrats genuinely want to bring George Orwell’s “1984” to life.  Elsewhere, Gettr has President Donald J. Trump’s old Twitter handle ‘in the safe.’
  90. 2021 Monday W: War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– NATO issued a forceful statement today encouraging the Taliban to stop running amok in Afghanistan as Western forces continue withdrawing combat forces.  (Note- we are sure the Taliban is listening to your warnings).  Retired U.S. Army General (and former CIA director) David Petraeus says that ‘the U.S. will come to regret the way in which it left Afghanistan.’  Once out, the U.S. cannot return.  (We hope the Chi-Coms fill the void and we hope the SOBs get sucked into a malevolent maelstrom of endless war.  We cannot see the Taliban allying with godless Chi-Coms who keep millions of fellow Muslims in slave labor camps).
  91. 2021 Monday X: U.S. Senate News I– U.S. Senate Democrats propose adding women to help draft laws.  What?  It’s 2021 and this has yet to happen.  Meanwhile, Senate Republicans warn Senate ‘Majority Leader’ “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer about the onrushing deadline to get something legitimate accomplished on the so-called ‘infrastructure bill.’
  92. 2021 Monday Y: Fake News I– It was fun watching author Michael Wolff- a great writer of FICTION- lambaste Brian “The Eunuch” Stelter as a proprietor of fake news.  What he said was that CNN presents itself as ‘virtuous news’ when in fact they are fake news.  Stelter was stunned and criticized Wolff for eagerly coming on the channel to share his views to which, Mr. Wolff said, ‘he does so to sell books.’  Hilarious.   Speaking of CNN, they announced that they are going to launch a new subscription streaming service as Fox News Channel has sometime in 2022.  Wow.  Can’t wait.
  93. 2021 Monday Z: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Fashion magazine Marie Claire says that media should show more parents getting abortions.  Sick f**ks
  94. 2022 Tuesday: Will today be the day that Joe Biden trundles off to the rest home and his despicable wife, ‘Dr. Jill’ Biden goes to prison for elder abuse?  Let’s hope so.  Here is another thought- those of us who live under the despotic rule of Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom cannot wait to see the ads that “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis will drop on our bozo chief executive come late October.  Gov. Newsom is such a worthless POS that he deserves ridicule and derision from everyone.  The man is so flipping stupid not to comprehend that he is a target-rich environment when it comes being trolled.  It’s going to be fun.  Chef E.C. McCardle.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The final original recording by Beach Boy Carl Wilson- “Like a Brother”- came out on March 15, 2000, two years after his death from lung cancer.  Over the years- interesting fact- the Beach Boys joined bands like the Grateful Dead (you can find these bootleg albums and foreign releases by going to RZ Record) and Chicago where the groups united to deliver joint sets, all of which were phenomenal.  In this case, work on the album began in 1992 and ended in 1997 and features collaborations between Carl and Robert Lamm (Chicago) and Gerry Beckley (America) joined by a load of talented musicians with which to create the aura surrounding this album.  There are 10 tunes here (13 on a Japanese re-release from 2001) which are amazingly delightful melding of the styles of three great bands and three glorious artists, all in synch with one another.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite haunt for music and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure; we think you will be glad that you did.  Enjoy.

  83. 2022 Monday O: It appears that the illegitimate ‘president’ Joe Biden’s world is imploding.  His wife, the faux first lady (so they call her) is blasting the Dems for not supporting her crumbling husband’s collapsing regime.  Still, we must stagger through another four months until this neutered loser and his extremely corrupt wife become totally meaningless, lame duck losers and another two years before we can send them packing.

186. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 05, 2022

1971 Monday: President Richard M. Nixon certified the 26th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which lowered the minimum voting age from 21 to 18. In 2019, the Democrats want to lower the age to 14 and to extend voting rights to felons in prison. It never stops. Many believe that voting should return to what the Founders wanted, ONLY people owning property had the right to vote. When you bestow voting on the masses, they will never vote for anything or anyone who does not represent their selfish interests like Democrats with trannys, illegal aliens, and criminal felons.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 303,429 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 156,220 deaths  
  62. 2021 Monday 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: 3,822,179 confirmed cases, 63,758 confirmed deaths, and 2,074,859 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,382,980 confirmed cases, 37,985 confirmed deaths, and 2,215,966 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 38,043 confirmed cases, 518 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 454,759 confirmed cases, 5,987 confirmed deaths, and 226,690 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Puerto Rico, home of AOC’s pobrecita abuelita: they have 275,320 confirmed cases, 2,552 confirmed deaths, and 121,227 confirmed recoveries.

[xvi]        
  65. 2021 Monday 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 by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.303 per gallon, $3.011 in Florida, $4.021 in Hawaii, and $3.801 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Tennessee: $2.881.  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 next lowest gasoline price in the world- Gabon: $4.166 per U.S. Gallon. [xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,487,342,957,683 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after ALL OTHERS, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is we return to the top with Japan with $1,251,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position.
  66. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, by our count, today is Day No. 104 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 10 since her photo op visit to El Paso where everything was choreographed for the gibbering jackal.  According to One America News, the numbers are astounding and remember- somehow, the Dems are blaming President Donald J. Trump for the utter fiasco unfolding along the southern border.  Here are their numbers for this horrendous holocaust of illegals invading our country: first, (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the vermin flowing in from around the world: $553,348,672.  Imagine this money going to Tunnel 2 Towers, to Wounded Warriors, to Disabled American Vets?  It would be life changing.  Next, (2) Total Cost this Year of caring for the tidal wave of unwashed humanity seeking to rape the United States: $203,293,130,752.  Imagine this money going to help the American people recover from the disaster of the Chi-Com Bat Flu Virus f**king up the country?  It would be amazing.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegal aliens who have swarmed into the USA this year: 2,083,591.  Fourth and final, here is the number of fence-climbing, river-swimming, visa-overstaying illegals lurking within the fabric of the U.S.- and remember- this is a conservative estimate: 36,083,592.  (Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Folks, we created this blog back in 2009 and at that time, we estimated the numbers of illegals in the United States to be between 35-50 million whereas now, we estimate there are between 75-100 million of illegals sucking away at what belongs to the American people.  This is NOT right.
  67. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Taliban is ramping up its warnings that if NOT ALL foreign troops evacuate Afghanistan, they will be considered open targets of the criminal Islamist thugs.  Elsewhere, BIG TECH companies are threatening to leave Hong Kong due to new Chi-Com laws being imposed on them.   In other fascinating news, we learn today that Israel used autonomous drone swarms to locate targets in the Gaza Strip during their 11-day conflict earlier in the year.  The drones located the targets, and the Israelis neutralized the scumbags.  Excellent.   Meanwhile, Russian warplanes are conducting bombing runs in the Black Sea while NATO allies- mostly the U.S. and Great Britain- are conducting military exercises with Ukraine.  Vladimir Putin did say last week that he could have sunk the British warship sailing the waters and that ‘World War III would NOT occur.’  Okay, Vlad.  Remember- the U.S. and the U.K. saved your asses in World War II.  POS.
  68. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden News I– When drooling Joe Biden was asked about recent Chi-Com and Russian cyberattacks on the U.S., he fumbled through his notes looking for the answer given him via his handlers.  How embarrassing this loser is to the American people in particular and the Free World in general.  Loser with a capital ‘L.’  Speaking of the cyberattacks of which slobbering Joe Biden knows nothing, they are demanding $70 million to restore data to the companies they have hacked.
  69. 2021 Monday I: Political News I– Rep. Cori “The Bitch” Bush, CPUSA-MO 1st congressional district, is drawing heavy flak for having proclaimed “Black people still aren’t free in the United States.”  Says a woman elected to the U.S. Congress by the citizens (and illegal aliens, too) of her district.  Are people like “The Bitch” this stupid not to see the irony in what she has said?  Citizens of Missouri, vote this piece of human fecal matter out of office in November 2022.  Another left-wing loser, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, CPUSA-CA 43rd CD, displayed her stupidity when she babbled that ‘Fourth of July applies ONLY to white men.’  Oh, tell us more, oracle of ignorance.  Speaking of female dogs, Governor ‘Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, CPUSA-MI, is trailing in new polls.  Good.  She must go, too.   Oh, since we are on this topic of female curs, Governor Kate Brown, CPUSA-OR, says that ‘FEMA is racist’ because they ‘won’t help illegal aliens’ in her state and that ‘illegal aliens are more important than native citizens.’  WTF is wrong with these people?
  70. 2021 Monday J: Political News II– In other political news, famed political strategist and historian Dick Morris says that the prosecutions going against President Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization are designed to ‘shut him up’ which they won’t.  Speaking of the President, Rep. James “Chi-Com Cash” Clyburn, CPUSA-SC 6th CD, says that ‘President Trump may have to come and testify before the ‘esteemed and apolitical’ January 06, 2021, Select Committee.’  Uh-huh.  In your dreams, communist bag man.  In other political news- and this is humorous- Governor Asa Hutchinson, RINO-AR, says he ‘is considering a 2024 presidential run.’  Sure, you and Chris “Lard Lad” Christie, Mitt “The RINO” Romney, Nikki “Two-Face” Haley, and loads of other RINOs.  In the words of Bob Dylan, “You ain’t going nowhere.”
  71. 2021 Monday K: Political News III– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, points out the truth that it’s the Democrats who are defunding law enforcement.  (Note- the Dems always tack defense bills or law enforcement bills onto other, extreme lunatic bills which the GOP cannot vote for and then blames the Republicans for doing what the Dems seek to do like defunding the cops.  Meanwhile, Democratic-Socialists are crying that the conservatives on the U.S. Supreme Court are laying the groundwork for what they call the ‘devastation to come’ regarding democracy.  Folks, the Supreme Court is standing with the proponents of FREEDOM and FAIR ELECTIONS so stop with the crying and with the attempts at corrupting our elections system.
  72. 2021 Monday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– TC Energy- the company behind the now-canceled Keystone XL Pipeline- is suing the Biden regime over shutting down the project which benefits the peoples of Canada and the United States.  By canceling it, Joe Biden has strengthened Russia, OPEC, and other oil producers while leaving the U.S. dependent upon other nations.  Shame on Joe Biden.  We hope TC Energy wins the lawsuit.
  73. 2021 Monday M: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– A California man is facing federal charges after a truck in which he was transporting a gigantic amount of commercial grade fireworks blew up and injured 17 people.  Elsewhere, CNN reports that over the course of the three-day Fourth of July weekend, more than 400 shootings have occurred in mostly BLUE towns and cities with at least 150 of them being FATAL.  Democrats blame Donald J. Trump for all the violence when in fact, it’s the Democrats corrupt and evil policies causing the violence.  Just look at Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot- she blames Trump and everyone else for the problems besetting her city when in fact, it’s HER.  It’s ‘Frog-Face.’  She is a loser.
  74. 2021 Monday N: Fake News I– The New York Times has come under fire for comparing ‘flag wavers’ to ‘Trump supporters.’  Most Trump supporters are flag wavers but the corrupt, left leaning ‘newspaper of record’ hates the country and hates patriots.  Shame on them.  Why are they even still in business?   Speaking of America-haters, a new poll says that ONLY 36-percent of young Americans are proud of the greatest nation on Earth.  Shame on them.  Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, blasts the ‘Old Grey Lady’ for calling the American flag ‘divisive.’
  75. 2021 Monday O: Economic News– GOP-controlled states are doing extremely well economically and doing so sans the extra unemployment insurance the Biden regime is raining down upon the citizens of BLUE STATES with which to keep them at home and their economies in the doldrums.
  76. 2022 Tuesday:  Everyone knows the drill- stick around to discover the truth along with the rest of us- you will be glad you did…

[i] We hope to promote the music of both the Band and its members sometime in the next 10-15 years.  The presentation would include the solo catalogs of Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Garth Hudson, and Richard Manuel.

[ii] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012.  You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.

[iii] Sadly, Detective was a short-lived band but one that had the potential to be as legendary as Led Zeppelin, if only Disco was not trashing the airwaves.  You will find their three albums on: (1) Tuesday, 29-July-2014, (2) Thursday, 31-July-2014, and (3) Friday, 01-August-2014.  We hope you will seek them out.

[iv] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of Aerosmith one day.  We hope within the next 8-10 years.  Remain vigilant.

[vi] Look for the Clash sometime within the next 5-10 years.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vii] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

[viii] It should be clear to all interested, well-informed readers that the Democrats could care less about black lives unless, of course, they can use their agonies to accomplish their perverted political goals.  Ask yourselves, why do blacks face murder and mayhem week after week in BLUE cities across the nation?  Why are Planned Parenthood centers predominantly near black and other minority communities?  Because to Democrats, ‘black lives don’t matter.’  Why then do blacks and other minorities continue voting for Democrats?

Polk from March 06, 1845, to March 04, 1849.
  15. 1862 Friday: In Wheeling, Virginia, future 25th U.S. Secretary of the Interior Walter L. Fisher is born.  A future Republican, he would serve under President William Howard Taft from March 13, 1911, to March 05, 1913.
