Trump if he moves forward with a replacement for U.S. Supreme Court Associate Ruth Bader Ginsburg who died Friday night from metastatic pancreatic cancer at age 87.  All news outlets- including Fox News Channel- accuse the GOP of hypocrisy for not bringing Barack Obama’s third U.S. Supreme Court pick Merrick Garland up for a vote in 2016.  What Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in 2016 is the same as he said this year: when a president of a different party than the one controlling the Senate in an election year brings up a SCOTUS replacement, the party controlling the Senate does not normally approve one and put them on the court, going back as far as the late 1880’s.  This time around the Republican Party controls both the Senate and the White House so NO hypocrisy exists, yet the liberals continue screeching and howling that what POTUS is going to do is somehow ‘unconstitutional’ and ‘unfair.’  Folks the Democrats would do it in a heartbeat.
  55. 2020 Sunday A: Following the attempted delivery of a letter filled with ricin to the White House, the FBI, the U.S. Secret Service and U.S. Postal inspectors are searching for clues as to whom sent it.  Meanwhile, we now for a fact that former FBI Director James Comey will appear before Sen.

Ann Wagner, R-MO 2nd congressional district, said that ‘Joe Biden wanted out of Afghanistan at ANY cost.’  Next, Rep. Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large congressional district, says that ‘unvetted Afghan refugees should NOT be permitted into the United States.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Rob Wittman, R-VA 1st congressional district, says that the botched drone strike that murdered a family of 10 in Kabul following the attack on U.S. troops guarding the Hamid Karzai International Airport last August demonstrates the loss of ‘over the horizon capabilities’ for the U.S. military (thanks to Joe Biden).

  68. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As Bidenville underneath the Del Rio, Texas, overpass continues to grow with estimates of anywhere from 12,000 to 15,000 illegal aliens- mostly Haitians- U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Antonio Mayorkas is rushing to the region, promising to begin deporting the Haitians back to their homeland.  And Joe Biden swears he ‘isn’t a racist.’  Yet, while claiming he’s not a ‘racist,’ Joe’s regime is bragging that it’s going to use Title 42- a Trump era policy- to round up and deport as many Haitians as they can.  Meanwhile, GOP governors are demanding a meeting with Joe Biden regarding the emergent crisis occurring along the southern border what with the importation of millions of Third World castoffs.  Finally, as overworked Border Patrol agents find themselves forced by the Biden regime to chase down fleeing illegal alien invaders via horseback, instead of defending the agents, the White House says the videos are ‘horrific.’  WTF!
  69. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Russia’s ruling party lost seats in the election but held onto its majority all the while reports continue flowing in of threats to election observers and the stuffing of ballot boxes.  No, say it ain’t so!  Elsewhere, in Kigali, Rwanda, the hero of “Hotel Rwanda”- Paul Rusesabagina, a critic of the Rwandan president- was found guilty today of creating and funding a ‘terrorist group’ and given a 25-year prison sentence.  Whoa.  Both the man’s family and the U.S. State Department have condemned this sentence.
  70. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. Ashish Jha told Newsmax that ‘more data is required for kids and COVID-19 shots before the feds begin jabbing the arms of children.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that the ‘origins of the Chi-Vi can be traced back to summer 2019.’  Elsewhere, a new report suggests that the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the BIG ’19, has killed almost as many Americans as the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918-19 did.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you.
  71. 2021 Monday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Mass protests against harsh COVID-19 mandates and lockdowns are breaking out across New York City.  How soon before citizens of the Big Apple march to the mayor’s mansion, torches and pitchforks held high?  Hopefully, soon, very soon.  Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio must account for his misbehavior.  Next, the U.S. is set to ease travel restrictions for foreigners as long as they have proof of COVID-19 vaccinations.  Next, after three black women assaulted the hostess at popular NYC eatery, “Carmine’s,” instead of the restaurant being the victim for having following “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio’s harsh COVID-19 passport rules and restrictions, the three assailants now claim they are the ’victims’ and thus a Black Lives Matter ‘protest’ is set to take place outside the restaurant this evening.  That should be fun.

Diana Harshbarger, R-TN 1st congressional district, in next year’s mid-terms.  Finally, Ohio State Senator Matt Dolan, RINO, announced he is in the running for the U.S. Senate in 2022 to take Rob Portman’s seat.  President Trump won’t give this lackluster loser who voted in favor of changing the MLB team ‘Indians’ to the ‘Guardians’ which has to be among the stupidest sports names in pro-sports history.
  77. 2021 Monday Q: Joe Biden News I– Senile Joe Biden is set to meet with the U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres today.  That should be fun, especially when the mind-blank Biden speaks to the U.N. General Assembly tomorrow.  We will be watching that farce!  Speaking of the usurper residing in the White House, the dictator promised to protect Americans from ‘extreme heat.’  (Note- if that is the case, the old dolt had better warn the EPA to ease up on the restrictions on the use of freon in air conditioning units).  Meanwhile, a new book says that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin’s feelings were hurt by drooling Joe Biden when he called the thug, ‘a killer,’ during a live TV interview awhile back.
  78. 2021 Monday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– After making the ‘deal’ with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison and UK Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson to supply Downunder with nuclear submarine technology, slobbering Joe Biden becomes the first U.S. president to cause the French government to recall its ambassador.  Imagine that.  Joe Biden is a frigging, senile disaster.
  79. 2021 Monday S: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Biden regime continues having problems getting its various, multi-trillion-dollar spending bills shoved through, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says the division among the Democrats on getting this crap pushed through to becoming law that it might delay the bills.  We hope it delays them into 2022 which will effectively KILL the bills.  Let us hope this is so…
  80. 2021 Monday T: Mass Shootings News– At least 8 students at a Russian university were killed in a mass shooting incident with numerous others wounded.  The authorities announce that the shooter was motivated by ‘hate.’  Meanwhile, in Chicago over the past weekend, there were 56 shootings and nine deaths.  Elsewhere, two students were shot and wounded at a Virginia high school today while late last night, the grandson of Cleveland, Ohio, Mayor Frank G. Jackson- 24-year-old Frank Q. Jackson- was gunned down outside a housing project.  Law enforcement is investigating.
  81. 2021 Monday U: Sports News I– Monday Night Football features two down-and-out teams: the Detroit Lions (0-2-0) at the Green Bay Packers (1-1-0).  Let us hope there’s NO tie tonight.  The Packers beat the Lions, 35-17.
  82. 2021 Monday V: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw– here are the results for the Powerball Draw #887 with a jackpot of $472 million up for grabs: 37, 51, 54, 58, 60, and Powerball 19.
  83. 2021 Monday W: Moron News I– The hits keep coming for Sandy “The Fly” Cortez (AOC- ‘Any Old C**k [will do]) over her attendance of the Met Gala last week and for wearing what many deem to be a Chick-Fil-A bag-like dress that said, “Tax the Rich” on its backside.  Today, we learn that the dress designer is in trouble for numerous tax code violations such as pocketing the tax withholdings of her workers as well as for not paying rents on the sweat shops the ho runs.  Little Sandy is so flipping stupid that she never thinks things out before she does something incredibly ignorant which is why she’s always in the MORON NEWS section at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  Speaking of the ‘Fly,’ the ‘Fly’ is proposing a constitutional amendment that will prohibit the U.S. from selling weapons to Israel.  Joe Crowley, when the hell are you going to find your balls and run against this dingbat?  Get your old seat back.  As Democrats go, compared to her, you are a swell person.
  84. 2022 Tuesday: Observation of the Day- You know, immigration serves a purpose but the invasion we are watching now serves NO purpose whatsoever other than to sow the seeds of barbarian invasion among us.  The Romans had a similar issue when one successive wave of barbarians pushed earlier ones into their orbit.  I believe the Balkans in the late Western Roman Empire was such a place where the Romans could not repel the invaders and so gave them land upon which to settle.  In exchange for the Romans protecting them and giving them sustenance, the barbarians would provide young men for the military and young women for whatever.  Sadly, the Romans in charge after a while sold the invaders dog meat at inflated prices and disparaged them through maltreatment.  It’s what the Romans did, all right?  Ah, well, the barbarians rose up and launched an INSURRECTION that required the Romans to divert military resources from other parts of the empire to put it down.  I believe it took 3-4 years and loads of towns and cities went up in flames and tens of thousands of Romans were killed.  IS this the plan Joe Biden and his overseers have?  We suspect the Biden regime is PRAYING to God that through Americans of all classes and all political parties (think New York City, Martha’s Vineyard, Chicago, and elsewhere) being disgusted and revolted by these people that they will EXPLODE IN A CACOPHONY OF VIOLENCE ACROSS THE COUNTRY which this scumbag Joe Biden can then label as the dreaded white extremism he can then call out the Army, the Navy, the Air Force, the Marines, the Space Force, the Merchant Marines, the Joestapo, the ATF, the armed IRS thugs, and whatever else the regime has at its disposal and to then crush ALL Americans.  We cannot permit this to happen, my friends, no, we cannot.  Tell me what you think- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On August 15, 1983, Cheap Trick returned with “Next Position Please,” another in a long line of high-powered pop albums. Todd Rundgren came aboard as producer and the group delivered a ringing addition to their ongoing discography.  Once again, the lineup featured Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, bass, keyboards, and backing vocals), Robin Zander (rhythm guitar and lead vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and Jon Brant (bass guitar and backing vocals).  Some claim the album is more reminiscent of a ‘Utopia’ album but we still hear Cheap Trick coming through loud and clear.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music- you will be glad you did.

[i] We will do the music of the Archies before we ever do the music of skanks such as Cardi B, Madonna, or any other of the current crop of female singers.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

Like a pit bull attacking another dog, this scumbag cannot let go of the Obama administration’s dastardly set-up of Trump and the people around him in order to destroy his presidency.  Meanwhile, the House Oversight Committee’s ranking member Rep.

  52. 2020 Monday: Word is now out that New York City- under the watchful eye of Mayor Bill Di Blasio- pot-smoking, Marxist mayor- is on the brink of permanent decline thanks to the mismanagement of both Mayor Bill Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo- both Democrats. Currently, there are 13,177 vacant apartments in the city, a 177-percent increase over last year compiled with a drop of 23-percent of new lease signings.  In the past weekend of violence, thugs shot fifty-one people and four killed (76 people shot during the entire week) and no one seems to care.  Business owners boarded up their storefronts, residents fled to other states, and the duplicitous Democrats seem not to care.  Meanwhile, over the weekend, gangbanging ruffians shot sixty-four people and killed at least five in Chicago.  The time is NOW to charge these Blue State governors and Blue City mayors with DERELICTION OF DUTY.  They must face federal charges and prison time for their criminal neglect and felonious mismanagement of their locales.  Elsewhere, Nancy Pelosi calls for Congress to reconvene to pass an emergency bill to fund the USPS but not to help the tens of millions of Americans affected by the Chinese Bat Flu Virus.  Shame on her!  Finally, President Donald J. Trump- on the way out to stump across America while the Democrats commence their national convention via Zoom and Skype authorizes aid for Iowa, ravaged by violent storms over the previous week.    
  53. 2020 Monday A: Rush Limbaugh- on his radio show today- shared the news that many countries around the world are using hydroxychloroquine behind the scenes to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. He pointed out that the African nation of Uganda is a big-time user of hydroxychloroquine to fight endemic malaria. Here are their number of confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus: 1,500, 13 confirmed deaths, and 1,142 confirmed recoveries.  Leftist Democrats, what flipping more proof do you criminal scumbags require to know that Plaquenil is great for fighting this disease?  Enough is enough!  Give everyone hydroxychloroquine NOW!
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: At the Democratic Convention, here is the lineup for speakers for TONIGHT: former First Lady Michelle Obama, Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT, Sen. Doug Jones, D-AL, Rep. Gwen Moore, D-WI, Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-MS, Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-SC, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, D-MI, Gov. Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo, D-NY, Sen. Catherine Cortez-Masto, D-NV, Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-MN, former 2016 presidential candidate and Gov. John Kasich, OH, and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Meg Whitman. What a lineup!  Interesting note: we heard through the grapevine that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is backing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat challenger- Shahid Buttar, another Democrat- in the November Elections.  Mr. Buttar is a Muslim lawyer, a person who graduated from Stanford Law School in 2003.  Boy, that takes some balls (for AOC, which is.  This is what Pelosi gets for giving the former Sandy Cortez 60 seconds to speak at the DNC Convention!  My-my!).
  55. 2020 Monday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 21,739,501 confirmed cases, +259,390, 776,241 confirmed deaths, +4,723, and 13,702,873 confirmed recoveries, +240,708. Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,488,763 confirmed cases, UP by 51,751 new cases, 172,146 confirmed deaths, UP by 720 new deaths, and 2,763,139 confirmed recoveries, UP by 19,545 new recoveries.
  56. 2020 Monday D: COVID-19 Statistics next, 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: 628,031 confirmed cases, 11,242 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 67,461 confirmed cases, 1,781 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  57. 2020 Monday E: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals- here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,844.91, DOWN 86.11 points (-0.31%).

[vi]  
  59. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 321,316 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 82,762 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  60. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,159,868 confirmed cases, 64,733 confirmed deaths, and 2,204,051 confirmed recoveries. Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,002,763 confirmed cases, 41,130 confirmed deaths, and 2,318,544 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 52,199 confirmed cases, 552 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 518,788 confirmed cases, 6,319 confirmed deaths, and 239,311 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Oregon: they have 245,758 confirmed cases, 2,964 confirmed deaths, and 206,357 confirmed recoveries. [vii]   
  61. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 956,310 confirmed cases, 6,704 confirmed deaths, and 891,723 confirmed recoveries. Let us look at one other country- Barbados, 182nd country on the list: 4,581 cases of the virus, 48 confirmed deaths and 4,409 confirmed recoveries. [viii]     
  62. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: Thanks to Joe Biden being the WORST president in U.S. history- even worse than foreign-born Barack Hussein Obama and the ‘peanut farmer’- DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,343.28, DOWN 282.12 points (-0.79%). Next, the NASDAQ: 14,656.18, DOWN 137.58 points (-0.93%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,448.08, DOWN 31.63 points (-0.71%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.04 per barrel, +0.05 (+0.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,787.90 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $23.65 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $994.40 per troy oz, +1.30 (+0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.22 per pound, +0.02 (+0.37%). [ix].   The price of PALLADIUM is $2,508.06 per troy oz, +4.76 (+0.19%).

[xii]        
  63. 2021 Tuesday E: 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 $4.405 per gallon, $3.010 in Florida, $4.089 in Hawaii, and $3.904 in Washington state. [xiii] Let us look at one other location- Nevada: $4.062.  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- Cabo Verde: $5.363 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,652,985,232,767 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xv].  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 Taiwan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Hong Kong with $224 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.
  64. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The Navy SEAL who shot jihadist Osama bin Laden- Rob O’Neill- says that Joe Biden- aka the Antitrump- is a ‘disaster.’ “Doomed from the start”- so says a Special IG report- the plan of building a stable democracy in Afghanistan.  The Taliban, sounding like peaceniks promise peace in the country and women’s rights under the guiding light of a kind and loving (false) deity, Allah.  Sure, right, of course women are going to enjoy ‘rights.’  Meanwhile National Security Adviser to slobbering Joe Biden- Jake Sullivan- says the ‘Taliban has guaranteed the right of all those who wish to leave the country uncontested passage to the airport.’  The young adviser also says that the regime will ‘hold the Taliban accountable for any wrongdoing.’  Sure, Jake, sure.  He also made the astonishing claim that the regime planned for ‘all contingencies’ in withdrawing the military (even though they left thousands of Americans behind and thousands of fellow NATO troops).  The former ambassador to Kabul under President Barack Hussein Obama- a man who criticized President Donald J. Trump as much as he could- now says there are severe doubts as to the ‘mental fitness’ of the ‘commander in chief’ to hold the office he supposedly won on November 03, 2020.
  65. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, as much as it pains us to report on failures every day, when it comes to the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, we feel we must. Today is Day No. 147 since the senile Oval Office occupant appointed her to defend the U.S.-Mexico border from the overwhelming tsunami of illegal aliens as well as her 53rd day since her sole visit to the slowest section of the border- the El Paso Sector.  What a loser.  Next, here are the numbers for the calamity befalling the country as reported by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $443,797,664.  Next, here is the cost for the entire year of 2021 so far: $250,306,854,912.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who swarmed into the country this year: 2,656,444.  Finally, here is the money WASTED on the Third World cast-offs for this year: 36,565,444.  (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).
  66. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– As things continue worsening in Afghanistan, the Taliban is going door to door seeking Western allies as well as compiling lists of girls and women aged 12 to 45 so the fatigued veterans of the Taliban army can marry them, settle down, and have families when they are not busy lopping off heads. However, be glad because the Biden regime is going to probe Afghan deaths at the Kabul airport, you know, the ones that fell to their deaths clinging to the landing gear.  These poor people were so afraid that they threw common sense to the winds and clung to the C-130 cargo jets.  Some managed to affix themselves to the aircraft but died at the elevation due to lack of oxygen while others plummeted thousands of feet to crash on the ground.
  67. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Joe Biden is extending the mask mandate for all travel in the U.S. via airplanes, buses, and railroads until 2022.  As COVID-19 cases surge in Florida, additional school districts are defying “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ order on NO masks in schools.
  68. 2021 Tuesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $50.42 (2) AstraZeneca $59.35 (3) Johnson & Johnson $179.47 (4) BioNTech $366.27 (5) Moderna $401.86. As we say, IF you desire to know the reason for the PUSH-PUSH-PUSH to get the vaccines and now with talk of everyone having to undergo a third round of this crap, all one must do is to follow the money.  Politicians invest in BIG PHARMA, they invest their money there because the recipients who suffer adverse reactions cannot sue the companies associated with vaccines, it is as if they have a ‘get-out-of-jail-free card’ when it comes to dealing with costly lawsuits.  Who would not want to put money into stocks such as these?  We sure the heck are putting more money into the stocks of pharmaceutical companies manufacturing Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.   IF the Chi-Coms continue releasing one variant after another, the vaccine companies will continue making new boosters which the U.S. government will buy with taxpayer dollars so they can distribute them “FREE” to all Americans and across the world.  The drug makers will then donate money back to the Democrats in the ongoing money-go-round.  Like union dues and donations to Democrats, this is a tried-and-true way with which the Dems and their RINO allies reap in the big bucks. 
  69. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden News I– Apparently, a reporter asked Joe Biden on his 2010 comments on America’s duty to defend the Afghan people. His reply to them now is “F— that.”  Well, there you go, Joe.  Oh, it is interesting to note that Joe Biden is back at Camp David, ostensibly on vacation but we know the ‘Manchurian Candidate’ is undergoing his weekly tune-up.  Without such tune-ups, he would be unable to speak coherently to anyone for longer than a minute or two.  
  70. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– As the Biden regime continues its implosion, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘America’s enemies are laughing at the U.S. over its abject failure’ in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th congressional district, says of Joe Biden that he does NOT deserve to remain in office.  The White House reports that (much like our botched withdrawal from Iraq) the Taliban has obtained loads of U.S. military hardware and equipment including drones and Blackhawk helicopters (so says Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district) and other equipment which we all know will be wending its way to communist China, Russia, and Iran for evaluation.  Thank you, Joe, thank you.   Meanwhile, as drought conditions worsen in the western states, governors in the region are pushing Joe Biden to declare a disaster so FEMA can activate and begin providing help.  Finally, the regime is hinting it is going to give the ‘cold shoulder’ to former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani.
  71. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News I– We learned today that Rep. Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and a ‘cancel rent’ advocate own numerous rental properties and collected rents from all of them. How come you did not cancel rents for your clients, “Chrome Dome?”
  72. 2021 Tuesday N: Big Tech News– Senator Marco Rubio is urging Joe Biden to ban TikTok following the Chi-Coms taking a major stake in the company.
  73. 2021 Tuesday O: New York State News– New Yorkers are growing angrier with both the mayor of the BIG APPLE and the soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov. First, 52-percent of New Yorkers want to see Governor Cuomo to face criminal charges while Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio faces lawsuits over his imposition of vaccine passports for all people seeking to dine indoors or to patronize other indoor businesses.  “No shot, no proof, no service” is the order of the day (unless, of course, you are a Christian baker and a couple of hardcore homos demand you bake them a ‘wedding cake’).  One shot won’t be enough, for a customer to partake of the ‘delights’ of New York City, a customer must be fully vaccinated and when boosters arrive, one must have proof of full vaccination.  Of course, this is not going over well with residents of the Big Apple- especially black, brown, and other minorities who view the government with suspicion and the lawsuits slamming into “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio are CIVIL RIGHTS lawsuits.  You see, “Killer” Cuomo and “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio through their harsh orders are turning blacks, browns, and others into second-class citizens.
  74. 2021 Tuesday P: Texas State News– Fully-vaccinated Lone Star State Governor Greg Abbot, GOP, tested positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu although he is asymptomatic and will undergo self-imposed quarantine for 1-2 weeks. Meanwhile, the state government is calling for mortuary trailers for dispatch to the southern border amid the illegal alien-caused growing COVID-19 crisis befalling the state.   
  75. 2021 Tuesday Q: Sports News I– The comeback of Tim Tebow ends as the Jacksonville Jaguars cut him loose. In other sports news, NFL great quarterback Brett Favre says parents should not permit their kids to play tackle football until age 14.
  76. 2021 Tuesday R: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1686 what with a $242 million jackpot on the line: 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24. 03, 06, 16, 38, 56, and Mega 24.  Stick around and discover the winners… Out of 97,147 winning tickets, the highest winners were 67 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $408 apiece.
  77. 2021 Tuesday S: Amigos, I am afraid that the Antitrump is leaving Americans behind in Afghanistan while flying jihadis interlaced with Afghan refugees into the U.S. to conduct terror attacks, attacks the bogus regime will lay at the feet of WHITE SUPREMACISTS. Once they tar and feather white folks with whatever jihadist attacks occur here, instead of going after the Islamists themselves, they will go after white people like Hitler and the Nazis went after the Jews.  Most all of us agree that the people behind Joe Biden are using white people as their ‘Jews,’ isolate and attack them all the while turning the country into a Third World pisser.  Look, I am a Latino- “America’s favorite Cholo”- and I don’t want the country overrun with millions of Third World riffraff.  Unlike many, I am not afraid to say this, in fact, I will boldly proclaim it.  Joe has got to go; President Trump must return to the White House now.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.
  78. 2022 Wednesday: Looks like Liz Cheney went down in smoking defeat.  Good.  The sooner these ‘Republocrats’ are vanquished, the sooner we can reclaim America and restore law and order.  Oh, the RINOs are crying, oh, the Democrats sniveling, but they did not turn out to save her sorry ass as she was begging them.           Let me say something about Alaska’s election system, the ‘ranked choice voting.’  What a bunch of bullshit, much like California’s corrupt ‘top two vote-getters’ facing off in the general.  Anything that is not one U.S. citizen one vote is bogus, corrupt, and must go.  We must vote on Election Day.  Paper ballots.  NO skullduggery.  Absentee ballots must come postmarked no later than Election Day.  I mean, does the IRS allow 2, 3, 4, or more weeks for returns to come in past April 15?  Nope. Besides- as in California thanks to our corrupt system- the American Independent Party, the Libertarian Party, the Peace and Freedom Party, and the Green Party are NEVER on the general election ballot.  Why aren’t they launching all sorts of lawsuits and taking this crap up to the U.S. Supreme Court and getting this corrupt, Democrat-favoring system tossed on the garbage heap?  I’m telling you.  Let us know what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

216. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 04, 2022

2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden. A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.

  55. 2010 Wednesday: Officials estimate that 28,000 people have died from Mexican drug violence since December 2006.  One might question as to WHY the United Nations has not requested troops from across the world to go into that godforsaken country and eliminate the narcoterrorists?

  61. 2016 Thursday: CBS News reports that candidate Donald Trump’s behavior on the campaign trail has been ‘so bizarre’ that many are left to wonder if he is a plant by the Hillary campaign or a secret agent in the employ of Russia.  What a load of bogus BS.  This supports the proven theory that the Deep State, the Democratic Party, and their Fake News allies are in cahoots not only to push haggard Hillary into the White House but to bamboozle the American people into believing their phony propaganda.  We shall see who wins in November.
  62. 2017 Friday: German supermarket Aldi pulls all shell eggs from the Netherlands from its shelves after the discovery of the chemical- fipronil- is found in them.  Pest control companies use fipronil to kill insects so WTF?  Elsewhere, in a federal court in Brooklyn, New York, former boy wonder pharmaceutical CEO Martin Shkreli- a loser who jacked up the price of a generic drug to the point no one could afford it- undergoes conviction on three counts of securities fraud.
  63. 2018 Saturday: In what many believe to be a setup, Venezuelan thug President Nicolas Maduro survives an assassination attempt, carried out by a drone while the communist POS was at a military review.  The event was captured on live TV.  Even better, the former bus-driving thug Maduro blames the assassination attempt on Venezuelan exiles hiding in neighboring Colombia and on their handlers as well as the Venezuelan ‘mafia’ supposedly living in Florida.  Dude, STFU.
  64. 2019 Sunday: The Central Bank of China devalues its currency below the normal 7-1 ratio with the U.S. dollar for the first time in more than a decade, due in part to the trade tariffs President Donald J. Trump is using to force the communists to the bargaining table and trade talks.  Meanwhile, in what many believe to be a terrorist attack conducted by ISIS, a car bomb explodes in Cairo, Egypt, killing 20 and injuring another 47 people.  Scumbags.  Elsewhere, Connor Bettis- a POS with a gun- hits the bar district in Dayton, Ohio, and kills 9 people and wounds another 27 before law enforcement arrives on scene and shoots the punk dead.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: In Beirut, Lebanon, a tremendous blast felt as far as Cyprus, rips part of the port apart, killing between 75-100 people and injuring another 2,700-3,500.  Speculation abounds with the Lebanese claiming it was a storage site for firecrackers (yeah, right) but we suspect the site was warehousing Iranian munitions bound for Hamas to use against Israel so either the Mossad took care of the problem, or the mullah-loving Iranians and their Hamas allies are too flipping stupid to be around large caches of explosives.  Self-detonation (or so we suspect- morons!).  Wow.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 18,380,616 confirmed cases, UP by 241,178 cases, 691,740 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,167 deaths, and 10,973,850 confirmed recoveries, UP by 220,035 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,834,460 confirmed cases, UP by 56,909 new cases, 158,728 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,208 new deaths, and 2,357,033 confirmed recoveries, UP by 38,264 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  67. 2020 Tuesday 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: 519,427 confirmed cases, 9,501 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 2,448 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,315 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 58,715 confirmed cases, 1,600 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 417,589 confirmed number of cases, 35,719 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers you fetid piece of sewer scum, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  Shame on you.
  68. 2020 Tuesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,828.47, UP 164.07 points (+0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,841.17, UP 38.37 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,306.51, UP 11.90 points (+0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $2,040.70 per troy oz., +19.00 (+0.94%) while the price of SILVER is $26.22 per troy ounce, +0.187 (+0.72%).  The price of PLATINUM is $958.50 per troy oz, +3.30 (+0.35%) while the price of COPPER is $2.90 per pound, +0.0085 (+0.29%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.55 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.36%).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.97 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.
  69. 2020 Tuesday D: Dr. Oxiris Barbot, New York City health commissioner, sent a letter to moron Mayor Bill Di Blasio, calling it quits over the tremendous mishandling of the COVID-19 Chinese Virus.  We must remember that Mayor Di Blasio and Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo colluded together to send patients infected with the Wuhan Flu into rest homes where vulnerable people died sans the presence of any loved ones present.  We can smell massive lawsuits against Di Blasio and Cuomo brewing on the horizon, like the police officers they wish to destroy, they should enjoy NO qualified immunity for their criminal mistakes.  Elsewhere, General Charles Brown took the oath of office in the White House which made him the new chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, the first black American to hold the post.  Congratulations! 
  70. 2020 Tuesday E: One teacher’s union after another around the country are making demands before they will return that range from soaking the wealthy, adopting the Green New Deal, abolishing the police, equipping every home with a computer and Internet access, and loads of other stupidity.  Friendly state education authorities are trying to shut down private schools, charter schools, you name it, they are doing whatever they can to close it.  President Trump: do what President Ronald Reagan did with the striking air traffic controllers- FIRE THEM and REPLACE THEM.  On August 05, 1981, he fired 11,359 of the scumbags.  Other Americans will take these jobs.
  71. 2021 Wednesday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 200,907,364 confirmed cases, +660,570, 4,268,702 confirmed deaths, +9,788 and 180,887,601 confirmed recoveries, +375,059.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,159,774 confirmed cases, UP 101,353 from yesterday’s reporting, 631,256 confirmed deaths, UP 759, [ix] and 29,783,667 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,537.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [x]  
  72. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 312,814 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 91,264 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xi]  
  74. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 885,766 confirmed cases, 6,503 confirmed deaths, and 854,995 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Laos,[xii] 168th country on the list: 7,305 cases of the virus, 7 confirmed deaths and 3,804 confirmed recoveries. [xiii]     
  75. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,792.67, DOWN 323.73 points (-0.92%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,780.53, UP 19.24 points (+0.13%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,402.66, DOWN -20.49 points (-0.46%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.10 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.07%).  The price of GOLD is $1,814.50 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%) while the price of SILVER is $25.41 per troy ounce, -0.05 (-0.20%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,018.10 per troy oz, -3.10 (-0.30%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.01%).

[xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.97. In Lao Kip, one greenback equals 9,550.00 and in Latvian Lats, a buck equal 0.604 and in Lebanese Pound, one dollar equals 1,505.50 of theirs. [xvii]        
  76. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.387 per gallon, $3.025 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.865 in Washington state. [xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maine: $3.128.  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- Cayman Islands: $4.929 per U.S. Gallon. [xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,602,871,192,916 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging 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 Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 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 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here’s the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris’ daily ticker: Border czar for 134 days and 40 days since her one and only visit to the southern border.  Next, One America News shared the latest figures on the illegal alien tidal wave overwhelming the country today.  Here we go: (1) Cost this day alone: $533,587,136.  Next, (2) here is the cost for caring for all these illegal aliens this year: $236,150,079,488.  Next, (3) Here is the estimate of the numbers of illegals who have poured across the U.S.-Mexico border just this year: 2,420,349.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens roaming the U.S.: 36,420,348.  (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).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day predicted as far back as 2009 when our original blogsite got underway that the numbers back then were between 35-50 million illegal aliens.  Now, we believe that number to be closer to 75-100 million.  A person cannot walk into a hardware store, go into a liquor store, dine at an outdoor restaurant without illegals running up and begging for food.  This must stop and it’s going to stop extremely soon…
  78. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– A federal judge blocks Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order prohibiting the transport of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State by anyone other than federal authorities.  The Texas Republican governor, however, is fighting back against this blatant overreach of power.  Elsewhere, slobbering Joe Biden continues blaming Texas and Florida for increasing the numbers of Chi-Vi cases.  ‘America’s Governor’ Ron DeSantis, R-FL, fired back at the counterfeit president, slamming him for allowing in millions of illegal aliens many of whom are infected with COVID-19 by telling him to ‘do your job and leave us alone.’  Man, the applause was tremendous.  Meanwhile, we have more numbers for the illegal alien invasion for the month of July: the Border Patrol caught 203,865 illegals, at least 37,252 were able to evade capture, 78 died, another 7,867 were guilty of NO violation, which leaves an outstanding number of 1,079 illegals.  Again, this is all a conservative estimate as the so-called ‘got-away folks’ are far higher than the numbers shown here.
  79. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Pakistan announced today that it has completed approximately 90-percent of the border wall with Afghanistan.  They don’t want Afghan refugees pouring into their country any more than Europeans want more Muslims, or the United States want more human refuse from around the world.  Good for them.  Elsewhere, Hezbollah scumbags fired some rockets into northern Israel today which led to the Israelis conducting artillery barrages on known jihadist sites in Lebanon.
  80. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is predicting that within a few weeks, there will be ‘200,000 cases of the Chi-Vi daily in the United States.’  (Note- this is all you need to know that the border must be closed and that every single illegal alien is rounded up, imprisoned, and then deported ASAP).  Meanwhile, Dr. Ashish Jha told Newsmax today that the NIH director Dr. Francis Collins was right to walk back mask comments.  The good doctor was saying stupid stuff like parents should wear masks at home around their children.  Enough already.    
  81. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The World Health Organization is calling for a moratorium on COVID-19 booster shots.  Oh, really?  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms continue their bitching and whining over the recent GOP COVID-19 origins report that placed the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for infecting the entire world with their Frankenstein-like lab-created Wuhan Bat Flu Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control yesterday bowed to Democratic-Socialist pressure and re-enacted a moratorium on evictions, something they lack the power to do.  Doubts continue to build as to the legality of such an order by an entity with no power in this area.  Look, folks, this is what the Democrats love- they love rules and regulations, none of them backed up by laws.  This is how they punish people, how they persecute people, and how they crush people.  This is bullshit and we would suggest that landlords pay NO attention to this order.
  82. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Democratic Party leadership in the House is urging their wavering members to run as “Biden Democrats” or risk losing the majority in 2022.  Meanwhile, Senator Kevin Cramer, R-ND, has introduced a bill (that will go nowhere) that says ‘if a state mandates COVID-19 vaccine passports, it also must mandate VOTER ID.’  That bill is going nowhere.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is correct when he blasts the House Democrats for their ongoing crusade to get a hold of his tax returns.  Good for you.
  83. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– A new poll says that more than half of California’s Hispanic population wants the recall against Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to succeed and like everyone else, the Latinos are members of all parties.  Meanwhile, Senator James Lankford, R-OK, says that ‘our grandchildren will suffer repaying Joe Biden’s massive debt.’  Amen.  In other political news, ‘America’s Mayor’ Rudy Giuliani says that ‘Cuomo may be guilty, but he does deserve due process.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, is suing MSNBC’s Rachel “Mudslinger” Maddow for libel.  We hope you win, congressman.
  84. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– In other political news, a new poll says that almost everyone is against partisan gerrymandering.  Next, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnel, RINO-KY, has outlined demands for future spending bills.  Mitch, you don’t have any power.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden plans to shift arms export sales based on human rights concerns.  Looks like Saudi Arabia is not going to get its weapons.
  85. 2021 Wednesday N: Economic News– Last month, everyone was celebrating how many NEW private sector jobs Joe Biden was going to create and then whoops-a-daisy, bad economic news.  Last month, the Biden regime created ONLY 330,000 jobs- many of them no more than hamburger-flipper or taco-stuffer jobs- rather than the highly predicted number of 653,000 new jobs.  Growth in U.S. services sector hits a record high in July.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump economic adviser Peter Navarro says “U.S. pensions took a big hit from the Chi-Coms’ crackdown on BIG TECH.”
  86. 2021 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3583 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 04, 14, 18, 36, 43, and Mega 14.  Out of 89,945 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $33,312.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Culver City, CA 90232.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #869 with a jackpot of $211 million up for grabs: 05, 21, 32, 36, 58, and Powerball 14.  Out of 85,166 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,844 apiece.
  87. 2022 Thursday: Hmmm, so-o-o, Joe ‘Slobbering’ Biden whacked Ayman Al-Zawahiri, the Number Two of al-Qaida, longtime confidant, physician, and amigo of dead terrorist Osama bin Laden.  A somewhat coherent Biden stumbled to the microphones this past Monday and stuttered out his message of a ‘successful drone strike’ on an old terrorist no one has seen in about a decade- if not longer.  Drooling Joe told his then-boss Barack Hussein Obama (and probably still boss) NOT to whack Osama but Obama ‘All Drama’ did.  Now, Joe wants us to think he’s a big, macho machine ordering death and destruction on every fourth string, D-team terrorist.  Folks, I don’t buy this crap nor will I.  When and if they confirm the DNA of the dead terrorist to be him or not, it means NOTHING.  NOTHING.  Big frigging deal.  Joe, you aren’t Donald J. Trump.  You’re a senile bum.  Resign now.

  68. 2019 Sunday: Due to major flooding down the Mississippi River, the state of Mississippi closes its beaches due to a subsequent toxic algae bloom.  Stuff happens.  Meanwhile, in the Ghazni region in Afghanistan, the Taliban- not to be outdone by ISIS who carried out an attack in Mozambique the day before carrying out a suicide car bombing in which, they deliver- kicking and screaming- 14 people to meet with Allah sooner than any of them planned while leaving another 200 in varying states of wishing they could visit with ‘Loving’ Allah.  What the hell is wrong with these people?
  69. 2020 Tuesday: Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 11,694,766 confirmed cases, UP by 211,366 cases, 540,157 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,130 deaths, and 6,349542 confirmed recoveries, UP by 135,336 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 3,028,468 confirmed cases, UP by 96,421 new cases, 133,081 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,074 new deaths, and 908,324 confirmed recoveries, UP by 29,321 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).

  72. 2020 Tuesday C: Both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence spoke with the nation’s governors urging them to reopen schools in the fall.   Meanwhile, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro tests positive for COVID-19 and says he is using hydroxychloroquine to treat it.   Meanwhile, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes signs a multi-year, $503 million contract with the team and they say the United States is a ‘racist country.’  Finally, the Trump administration announces that it has submitted the paperwork for a formal exit of the United States from the Beijing-controlled World Health Organization.  It also is going after Chinese-owned Tik Tok. 
  73. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 185,805,281 confirmed cases, +462,094, 4,016,743 confirmed deaths, +8,530 and 170,062,165 confirmed recoveries, +351,682.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,638,566 confirmed cases, UP 22,490 from yesterday’s reporting, 621,763 confirmed deaths, UP 201, [xv] and 29,165,927 confirmed recoveries, UP 26,789.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 303,403 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 155,792 deaths

[xxii]        
  78. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.308 per gallon, $3.014 in Florida, $4.027 in Hawaii, and $3.817 in Washington state. [xxiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Utah: $3.644.  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- Ukraine: $4.169 per U.S. Gallon. [xxiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,494,915,832,772 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxv]  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 the Chi-Coms, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom with $440 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.
  79. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 106 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka the laughing jackal, aka the gibbering orangutan, aka the screeching hyena, aka “Willie Brown’s Mattress,” to be in this extremely important job.  It’s also Day No. 12 since her first and only visit to the U.S.-Mexico border and there is no word as to when she will return and begin doing her job.
  80. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Chi-Coms have announced that WHEN hostilities break out between the communists and the freedom-loving peoples of the REAL China- Taiwan- the Japanese had better stay the hell away or the Chi-Coms will DESTROY them.  Talk like this makes us wish the Imperial Japanese had overrun China in the 1930s and were still there today because in the ultimate struggle between freedom and tyranny, the Chinese Communist Party is the NUMBER ONE THREAT to the free peoples of the planet.  Not so much because of their military might but because of their use of United States dollars to finance the buying off of governments around the world to do their bidding and become lackeys.  We are big proponents of a neutron bomb first strike on all Chi-Com military bases and sites, something that should have occurred back in 1950.
  81. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The Delta variant of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu is the prevailing one in the United States right now, one that drooling Joe Biden is going to dispatch his Joestapo agents door to door to make sure everyone has their vaccine.  Uh, Joe, if people go door to door forcing Americans to get this bulls**t vaccine, people are going to get their asses beat, if not shot.  And besides…what about it’s MY body, MY choice?  Six months ago, I thought if Trump was pushing the vaccine, we shouldn’t take it whereas now, EVERYONE must take it.  (Note- as a woman of piety and religious conviction, it sounds a great deal like the ‘Mark of the Beast’ to me).  In England, Chi-Vi cases there have quadrupled since last month.
  82. 2021 Wednesday I: Political News I– A new Echelon poll says that IF President Donald J. Trump does not run for a third term, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis is the hands-down favorite to win the White House in 2024.  In other political news, powerhouse Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd CD, says that ‘Joe Biden talking tough to Russia is comical.’
  83. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is sending billions of dollars to Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot, CPUSA, to help her quell the crime wave surging throughout the Windy City, a wave of crime the ugliest woman in the world blames on President Donald J. Trump and gun store owners in neighboring Indiana.  We predict 95-99-percent of the money slobbering Joe Biden is sending there will end up in the Swiss bank accounts of everyone in public office within the nation’s third largest city.  It’s inevitable.
  84. 2021 Wednesday K: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– President Donald J. Trump said today that ‘Hunter Biden’s laptop makes Al Capone look like a baby.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, the punk who filmed George Floyd’s death and then became an instant star lost his uncle in a crash with law enforcement as he was trying to flee from a crime scene.
  85. 2021 Wednesday L: National Security News– Grant Stinchfield reported on his Newsmax show that BIG WALL STREET BANKS and pension funds are buying up entire neighborhoods with which to turn them into rentals, thus keeping the American people in a state of bondage.  We have warned of this for several years now but we believe that enemy nations such as the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others if smart are purchasing up housing tracts and commercial properties, not for resale but for purposes of transforming into rentals.  They do this via straw companies and buyers and in so doing are becoming the landlords of the American people which is a national security risk.  It is a risk the same way that a POS such as Bill Gates buying up American farmland at a rate heretofore unseen in U.S. history and then leaving it fallow is a national security risk.  This must stop.  NOW.
  86. 2021 Wednesday M: Human-Caused Disasters– The death toll in the Surfside, Florida, condo collapse now hovers somewhere around 46-50 with at least 90-plus still unaccounted for.  Local authorities say that any hope of finding anyone alive in the rubble now is almost impossible.
  87. 2021 Wednesday N: Fake News I– CNN took it upon itself to scold American parents for ‘not comprehending Criminal Race Theory,’ uh, what they call Critical Race Theory which is nothing but bigotry on steroids.  The foundation of Criminal, uh, Critical Race Theory is that the country was built atop SLAVERY.  Slavery was NOT good, but they act as though the United States was the ONLY nation in the world that had slaves.  When the Spanish came, they brought slaves as did the Portuguese, the Dutch, and the British, it was the way of life just as it is now.  Granted, slaves may not labor on plantations, but they sell their bodies against their will or hump drugs across the border.  The gist of the whole story is this: Haiti ended slavery in 1798.  Mexico in 1821.  The United States in 1865 at the cost of more than 600,000 lives, while Brazil ended slavery in 1881.  Heck, Saudi Arabia ended slavery in 1961 so what is the point in all this HATE being spewed by members of my party?  As a black woman, it offends me, they offend me, and it’s high time we take our country back and run this godless riffraff out of the country NOW.  Enough with the hate.  Nikole Hannah Jones and all the rest of the race pimps should be ashamed.  Besides, they are doing the Chi-Coms’ work for them.  -Bea O’Malley.
  88. 2021 Wednesday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Today, President Donald J. Trump announced the launch of a class-action lawsuit against Facebook, Twitter, and Google.  Everyone who has been victimized by any of these scurrilous scoundrels of left-wing companies understands the rank power these little boys and illegal aliens possess over the American people which is simply NOT right and must be stopped.  Famed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that Trump’s lawsuit is ‘particularly important.’
  89. 2021 Wednesday P: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, we have Super Lotto Draw #3575 with a $61 million jackpot on the line and second, we have Powerball Draw #861 with a $113 jackpot on the line for some lucky dog.  Stick around for the results of both.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 10, 12, 32, 37, 39, and Mega 18.  Out of 134,375 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $23,803 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Shell, McClellan, CA 95652 and (2) another Shell in Mariposa, CA 95338.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #861: 08, 21, 30, 49, 57, and Power 08.  In California, out of 61,837 winning tickets, the highest winners were 28 people who had FOUR numbers but no Powerball for a prize of $571 apiece.
  90. 2022 Thursday: Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with the rest of us…

184. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, JULY 03, 2022

1942 Friday: Adolf Hitler and other officers fly to Field Marshal Von Bock’s headquarters in the Ukraine. The Fuhrer needs to keep maximum pressure on the Soviets as Case Blau- the 1942 campaign to secure the oilfields in the Caucasus- can proceed at full steam. The campaign will also include the investiture of Stalingrad on the Volga River as once the Volga supply line is cut, no more oil can flow north to Moscow and Soviet military operations there.

  72. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Chi-Com hacking group, ‘Indigozebra,’ is getting the blame for hacking into more than 1,000 businesses and infecting their computers with ransomware.  That’s the Chi-Coms for you.  Meanwhile, Israel is investigating a half-assed missile attack on one of its cargo ships plying the waters of the northern Indian Ocean.  The CSAV Tyndall, owned and operated by Israel until recently suffered minor damage from a missile suspected to be from Iran.  Israel, drop a nuke on those backward bastards.  Light them up!

  74. 2021 Saturday I: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Some wag fired 23 shots into the home of Alabama Senator Vivian Davis Figures.  Since she is a Democrat, it was probably a Jussie Smollett-style setup to gin up anger among certain communities so as to get the pot boiling before summer truly gets underway.   In other news, police take 11 men into custody after a tense standoff between the heavily armed individuals and the cops in Wakefield, Massachusetts.  In other crime-related news, Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot is blaming- get this- President Donald J.

  22. 1902 Tuesday: The United States ended a three-year military presence in Cuba as the people established the Republic of Cuba under its first elected president, Tomas Estrada Palma—the United States should have made it a state.

  29. 1941 Tuesday: During World War II, German troops invade the Mediterranean island of Crete to strangle British forces in North Africa.  German and Italian air and naval assets pummel the islands while paratroopers begin landings across the island.  Resistance is fierce and the Brits are giving as good as they get.  Still, it is only a matter of time.
  30. 1942 Wednesday: During World War II, the Office of Civilian Defense was established.  On the Eastern Front, German armored units are pushing the remaining Red Army forces out of the eastern Crimea where they had established bridgeheads on the Kerch Peninsula in preparation for what they thought would be a massive counterstroke against their Fascist enemies.  Perhaps another time…

Security Council to renew Resolution 1487 which shields U.S. military personnel and officials from prosecution by the International Criminal Court.  (Note- why does the United States worry about this crap when the Russians, Muslims, and even the Chi-Coms and North Koreans don’t?  Kind of goofy to us).

Finally, longtime drummer with another Southern rock band, the Atlanta Rhythm Section[v]–Robert Nix (drums/percussion/backing vocals 1971-1979)—died on this date in Memphis, Tennessee, at age 67.

  67. 2018 Sunday: In the socialist hellhole of Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro wins re-election in a questionable election marked by boycotts, protests, and massive accusations of vote-rigging.  The guy must be a Democrat.
  68. 2019 Monday: Google supposedly ends its support for communist China’s Huawei Android phone system as tensions between the United States and the counterfeit socialist nation deteriorate.
  69. 2020 Wednesday: Beijing is sniveling and whining that everyone is calling the Chinese Virus “the Chinese Virus,” but it is the Chinese Virus as it came to us from the hinterlands of Wuhan, China, and it continues killing people around the planet as we speak and allowing totalitarian leaders to increase their grip on their populations.  Here are the stats for the globe today: 4,968,689 number of confirmed cases, 326,515 number of confirmed deaths, and 1,885,535 number of confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have (thanks to communist China) 1,581,903 confirmed cases, 93,806 confirmed deaths, and 301,341 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM- the old American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, formerly at Google Blogger (scumbags), California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, the Golden State first: 81,795 confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are Hawaii’s stats: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are Washington state’s stats: 18,923 confirmed cases, 1,037 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, liberal Blue State governors continue freeing criminals from prisons and jails, supposedly out of fear of COVID-19, but in truth, seeking to punish their enemies.  Is a second Civil War coming?  It sure looks that way, thanks to communist China.

Currently, Joe is shy 173,481 deaths.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, lawmakers are asking WHY House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, possibly more senile than the 46th president is, won’t update the MASK DICTATE when the Centers for Disease Control says, ‘MOST Americans no longer have to wear masks (not that we ever truly did).’  The amazing thing is that when the Democrats believe the cameras are turned off, the masks come off.  What a load of festering fecal matter.

  75. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.153 per gallon, $2.884 in Florida, $3.889 in Hawaii, and $3.553 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- West Virginia: $2.993.  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- Colombia: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,309,522,043,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  76. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 59 for Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the southern border.  Meanwhile, rumors of maltreatment and mistreatment of illegal aliens in holding pens along the southern border continue to grow and the federal government has closed two facilities with dire records of mistreatment of the incarcerated illegals.  Elsewhere, video is beginning to leak out of illegal alien dumps at various airports around the country in the dead of night.  Chef Lilah who has a relative working at the airport in Honolulu says that illegal alien brats are arriving at least once a week in flights who are then being distributed around the Hawaiian Islands.  This simply must stop. 
  77. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Hamas and Hezbollah are crying uncle.  A ceasefire negotiated by the Joe Biden regime and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has brought a halt to the ongoing clash of Good (Israel) and Evil (Hamas and Hezbollah).  The Israelis have eliminated most of the tunnels that Palestinian leadership devotes massive amounts of donated money to construct rather than giving their people better lives.  The Israels also have taken out numerous Hamas military sites and as many Hamas scumbags as possible.  God bless you!   Meanwhile, a Chinese Communist Party-linked professor says that ‘COVID-19 was indeed a Chi-Com biological weapons attack on the United States.’  Hell, we have been saying that since it began gaining steam in early 2020!  Senior Researcher Chen Ping of China Institute of Fudan University said that ‘(communist) China defeated the U.S. in a biological war in 2020.’  What more flipping evidence does the world need to understand that the primary target was President Donald J. Trump, and the primary beneficiary was “Pro-China Joe” Biden?  OPEN YOUR EYES.
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Dr. Kelli Ward, chair of the Arizona GOP, says that it would appear that more and more evidence demonstrates that the 2020 Elections in the Copper State most likely were corrupt and fraudulent in Maricopa County and that it is possible that Joe Biden could be proven to be the counterfeit that he is.  We hope to see a great outcome which is why the Arizona Democratic Party is doing everything it can to defy the ongoing audit as is the despicable Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  We believe the Canadian government must order them to comply with all requests from the ongoing Grand Canyon State audit.   (Note- George Soros-funded Sheriff Paul Penzone, DS, is fighting the auditors by putting as much blockage in their way.  When the hell is this country going to do something to Mr. Soros?)  Finally, the D.A. in Fayette City, Pennsylvania, has launched a probe into WHY Dominion Voting Systems machines flipped ONLY GOP ballots over to Democrats in the last election.  Bit by bit, more information continues coming out that we believe is going to show that the Democrats stole 2020.  Hence, why is there this determination to continue strengthening Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.?  They know they got away with a stolen election.
  79. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– the Biden regime directs U.S. agencies to assess and to then mitigate the effects of ‘climate change.’  Uh, okay, what a waste of time.   Next, all of the Biden regime’s misfires has led to problems in the U.S.-Israeli relationship.  Speaking of Israel, Joe’s pal, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is offering legislation to BLOCK the $735 million sale of weapons to the Israelis.  (Note- what more evidence does one require to know that Bernie is a self-hating Jew?)  Also related to Israel, GOP lawmakers are calling on Mr. Biden to strengthen U.S. ties with Israel.  In other regime news, the Bidenistas say the Chi-Coms won’t release data from their now infamous Wuhan Biological Warfare Lab.
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– The University of North Carolina has denied 1619 Project founder, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones tenure because this woman is- in the language of the young and dumb- cray-cray.  Good for them.  Educated, fair-minded people must begin pushing back on these racist nuts before they destroy our country.  Boot this bi**h into the nearest dumpster.  Speaking of educated, non-racist folks, a new study finds that 35-percent or more conservative thinkers are better educated and better informed on both current events and past events.  Liberal news watchers are much-less educated and aware of the truth of anything.  Speaking of liberal bias, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, calls out the mainstream news media- what Dave Rubin labels ‘corporate news media’- over its coverage of events.
  81. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– While the Democrats continue pressing ahead with socialism, House GOP leaders held a Cuban independence day event.  The people of Cuba deserve their freedom while the American people do not deserve being forced into communism via the backdoor of socialism. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, lambasted the Democrats’ establishment of the ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ as being little more than ‘impeachment 3.0.  Amen.  In fact, ZERO people have been charged with insurrection.  NONE.  The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $11.2 million in the month of April.   Elsewhere, people are asking questions as to WHY Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer just shut down the state’s Line 5 that provides propane for much of Michigan for home heating?  WTF is occurring here.
  82. 2022 Friday: Everyone knows the drill- stick around with us and discover the truth…the way things are going, we may have to make nice with China because things are going to hell here in the United States in a handbasket what with WOKE this and WOKE that and here a WOKE and there a WOKE, everywhere a WOKE-WOKE-WOKE…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

43. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 2022

2021 Friday E: In a fit of outrage, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi forbids Representative Claudia Tenney, Republican- who just won NY-22 House race by 109 votes- from having her family present at her swearing in on Capitol Hill. Congresswoman Tenney’s son, a recent graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy and in uniform was deemed a “RISK” by the senile head of the House. What a national embarrassment.

  61. 2008 Tuesday: The race for the White House continues.  Illinois Senator Barack Obama wins the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia Democratic primaries which puts him in the lead over his closest rival, New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.  On the other side of the coin, Arizona Republican Senator John McCain, wins the GOP nominations in the same chunks of real estate.  Republicans are not thrilled with Senator McCain; it is what it is.  Elsewhere, Russia and the Ukraine settle a dispute over the debt owed by the latter to the former.  The Ukraine owes money to Gazprom for deliveries of natural gas.
  62. 2011 Saturday: Anti-government protesters in Yemen call for President Ali Abdullah Saleh to step down from power; he ruled the country since 1978.
  63. 2012 Sunday: At the Grammy Awards, Adele[viii], a British singer, wins awards for the Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year.  Meanwhile, the Greek people go berserk as the government okays austerity measures.  Portugal is having similar problems with 300,000 people taking to the streets in protest against their government.
  64. 2013 Tuesday: North Korea[ix] conducted its third underground nuclear test—the world needs to nuke these crazy bastards into submission!
  65. 2014 Wednesday: Twenty-eight years after Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos was ousted, the Philippine government recovers $29 million from Swiss accounts, bringing the total Marcos’ secret accounts now recovered and in government hands to $712 million.  Meanwhile, Syrian government forces and their Hezbollah allies link up to launch an assault on the ISIS-held Yabrud.
  66. 2015 Thursday: Ukraine and Russia negotiate a ceasefire with the support of Germany[x] and France; the agreement calls for an end to fighting, removal of large artillery from the sites of conflict, and greater independence for eastern Ukraine.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate confirms Ashton Carter as the 25th U.S. Secretary of Defense.
  67. 2016 Friday: To the delight of climate change scammers everywhere, Fiji becomes the first nation to ratify the UN climate deal[xi], the one signed in Paris in December 2015.  Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry announces that following a meeting of 17 foreign ministers from around the world in Munich, a ceasefire in Syria would be declared in one week, following the delivery of humanitarian supplies to the refugees huddling along the border with Turkey.
  68. 2017 Sunday: In Northern California, residents living around the Oroville Dam- 180,000- are ordered to immediately get the hell out as overflow from the spillways due to humongous rainfall threatens its stability and a possible collapse.  Thankfully, the dam withstood the torrent of water.  Elsewhere, the North Koreans fire an intercontinental ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan.  Of course, this causes alarm around the region.
  69. 2018 Monday:  Following widespread charges of allegations of sexual misconduct in Haiti and Chad, Oxfam deputy director Penny Laine Lawrence resigns the post of the British charity.  She apologizes profusely.  Great.  Tell it to the victims.  Meanwhile, trying to get things going, President Donald J. Trump sends his $4.4 trillion federal budget proposal for 2019 to the U.S. Congress.  Meanwhile, the president meets with several governors and big city mayors so he can lay out his $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill to get the American people back to work and to repair and improve the crumbling infrastructure of the nation.
  70. 2019 Tuesday: After 200 hours of testimony in a federal courtroom, a jury finds Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman guilty of all 10 federal crimes with which, they charged him.  Meanwhile, after a lengthy dispute with Greece, Macedonia changes its name to the Republic of Northern Macedonia.   Elsewhere, much to the delight of Democrats in the United States, Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro tells a BBC reporter that U.S. President Donald J. Trump is a white supremacist who is actively ‘warmongering’ against his country and says that the “Ku Klux Klan is running the White House.”  Now where could this ignorant POS have gotten these comments?  The Democratic Party and their allies in the Fake News Media?  We’d lay our money on this!
  71. 2020 Wednesday: As the coronavirus outbreak continues to worsen around the planet, Tonga forbids four cruise ships from docking while in Cambodia, the government there says it’s okay for the MS Westerdam to disembark more than 2,000 after several other nations in the region turned the cruise ship away.  Elsewhere, all manner of other nations are canceling all manner of events and happenings out of fear of the rapidly spreading Wuhan Flu.    Elsewhere, Democratic 2020 presidential candidate and former governor of Massachusetts Deval Patrick suspends his brief campaign. 
  72. 2021 Friday:  Day 24 of the Biden Regime: the border policies of the Biden administration (or lack of them, we should say) are coming under increased fire as hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are flowing north through Mexico and attempting to storm the southern border.  NO one is checking the dregs of the Third World for the infamous Chi-Vi.  Good going, ‘Usurper Joe!’  Speaking of the Biden regime, his family is coming under increased fire from people on all side of the aisle over his claims that family members will have no place within his administration when in fact, they are enriching themselves like gorging leeches on a floundering swimmer in the Amazon River.  Speaking of Joe Biden, he is attempting to blame his predecessor for his inability to roll out vaccines with which to combat the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  You go, Joe, you go!  Finally, Joe Biden announces he is going to permit in 25,000 refugees immediately (among whom we suspect will be foreign intelligence agents seeking to target U.S. citizens opposing their countries).   Joe Biden also cuts off all emergency funding for the southern border wall.
  73. 2021 Friday A: Speaking of the Biden administration, a now capsizing Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, D-NY, is deflecting criticism of his murder of the ill, the infirm, the disabled, and the mentally ill in rest homes onto the back of the Biden crew.  Wow.  How quickly the maggots turn!  Speaking of New York Democrats, Dems across the state are being hammered with the tragic loss of life their inept at best and criminal at worst policies have done to the citizens of the Empire State.  Regarding the Chinese Virus, more than 8 million Americans slipped into poverty in the second half of last year thanks to the Wuhan Flu.  “Pro-China Joe” said he had a plan- where is the plan, Joe?
  74. 2021 Friday B: The Trump defense team is blasting major holes in the House managers’ flawed arguments showing film clips the Democrats edited to make Trump appear a criminal by showing the films in their entirety as well as innumerable clips of Democrats talking about violence, threatening violence, joking about violence (man, Kamala’s laugh is worse than Hillary’s and that is pretty bad, folks), and guaranteeing violence.  Republicans have met with the defense team in preparation for the devastation coming the way of the Democrats in the U.S. Senate today.  We contend it’s going to be extremely difficult for the RINOs to vote to convict ex-President Trump just as it will for several Democrats whose allegiance is to the Constitution of the United States and not to Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.
  75. 2021 Friday C: The People’s Republic of China bans BBC World News from within its borders.  We thought you had nothing to hide, Chairman Xi?   Meanwhile, Russia threatens to cut off ties with the European Union if they impose any additional economic sanctions upon the country over the arrest of Alexei Navalny and protesters favorable to him.  That means natural gas supplies you get from the Russkies could be terminated.  You probably miss Donald J. Trump by now, don’t you?  Elsewhere, New Zealand announces plans to roll out vaccines for the Chi-Vi beginning next week.  Finally, we learn today that the Biden regime’s energy policies favor foreign nations over the country he was supposedly elected to lead.  First, loss of high-paying energy jobs to Canada and to China.  Second, energy independence is thrown out the window in favor of importing oil from OPEC, Russia, Venezuela, and other places inimical to U.S. interests.  Third and final, stifling U.S. energy production benefits Chairman Xi, Vladimir Putin, the Grand Ayatollah, Burisma, and Nicolas Maduro.  Good going, Joe.  Finally, “Pro-China Joe” is being blasted for repealing a Trump executive order that prohibited purchase of and installation of foreign energy equipment in the American power grid.
  76. 2021 Friday D: Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Democrat, signals she will oppose the Biden administration’s demand for a $15 per hour minimum wage.  Meanwhile, in New Hampshire, a hand recount shows that in the 7th congressional district, a place in which, DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS MACHINES AND SMARTMATIC SOFTWARE WAS EMPLOYED, an average of 300 votes was deducted from every statewide or national Republican candidate and flipped to the Democrats.  Yet, both of these disingenuous companies- Dominion and Smartmatic- swear there’s ‘nothing to see here.’  The entire 2020 election cycle is (ALLEGEDLY) marred by these two crap companies and their Democrat bosses.    Elsewhere, the North Dakota Senate is considering a bill that prohibits trannys from participating in scholastic sports.  (Note- Chef Elmer on Monday is going to make an argument that a third category of school sports should be created- Transsexual Sports.  This would make both boys and girls competing in sports happy and it would acknowledge the greater increase of students who are confused about their sexual identity and who can then compete with one another fairly).
  77. 2021 Friday E: In a fit of outrage, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi forbids Representative Claudia Tenney, Republican- who just won NY-22 House race by 109 votes- from having her family present at her swearing in on Capitol Hill.  Congresswoman Tenney’s son, a recent graduate of Annapolis Naval Academy and in uniform was deemed a “RISK” by the senile head of the House.  What a national embarrassment.  The Speaker has National Guard units all over Washington, D.C., and yet, she won’t permit a uniformed member from entering the House?  What a disgrace.  Next, a House committee plans to give U.S. airlines $14 billion in COVID-19 relief aid.  Meanwhile, dating app Bumble surges in its IPO in its first day of trading.  Elsewhere, L’Oréal sales shoot up to hit $95 billion in Q4 2020 due to a 62-percent spike in online sales.  Sales in the People’s Republic of (Communist) China saw an increase of 27-percent.  Finally, a judge declines to issue both a new warrant and a jacked-up bail amount for patriot Kyle Rittenhouse, accused of murdering two Antifa thugs who were trying to murder him.  A clear case of SELF DEFENSE.  
  78. 2021 Friday F: Here are the numbers for the COVID-19 global pandemic, the planet first: 108,043,938 confirmed cases, +538,271, 2,377,988, confirmed deaths, +20,513, and 60,504,739 confirmed recoveries, +368,271.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,716,018 confirmed cases, up 176,801 from yesterday’s reporting, 483,695 confirmed deaths, UP 10,472, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries same as it’s been since ‘Pro-China Joe’ moved into the White House.  NOTE- in the White House 24 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 154,300 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Fellow Americans, JOE BIDEN LIED AND PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
  79. 2021 Friday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,460,320 confirmed cases, 46,002 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,370 confirmed cases, 425 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 329,170 confirmed cases, 4,701 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the United States: New Jersey- currently, they have 740,016 confirmed cases, 22,393 confirmed deaths, and no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 718,746 confirmed cases, 5,304 confirmed deaths, and 651,522 confirmed recoveries.     
  80. 2021 Friday H: For a laugh, let’s look at the Chi-Coms’ numbers- they say they have 89,748 cases, +14 from last week, 4,636 confirmed deaths (same as two weeks ago), and 84,292 confirmed recoveries, +825 from last week.  This, of course, is ALL BULLS**T.  When we had contacts in Hong Kong, they said ‘times the numbers by 100, 150, or 200 times and you would get a somewhat closer picture.’  Rodent-eating scum. 
  81. 2021 Friday I:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,458.40, UP 27.70 points (+0.88%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,095.47, UP 69.70 points (+0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,934.83, UP 18.45 points (+0.47%). We reiterate what we mentioned last week: markets are UP because they believe ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden is going to borrow TRILLIONS from the Chi-Coms.  We still predict that by June 2021, the triple whammy of a $15 minimum wage, ongoing pandemic politics, skyrocketing energy and food prices, and massive illegal aliens numbers are going to tank the economy worse than 1929.  Bad economic times are on the horizon because the economy cannot handle multiple hits of Chi-Vi, a jacked-up minimum wage that is going to cost American workers jobs while allowing employers to hire ILLEGAL ALIENS under the table and providing them NO Obamacare.  It is going to be extremely ugly, and we have a ‘president’ sitting around spanking the Toobin in the White House.
  82. 2021 Friday J: The price of GOLD is $1,823.20 per troy oz., -3.60 (-0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $27.33 per troy ounce, +0.28 (+1.04%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,256.38 per troy oz, +18.70 (+1.51%) while the price of COPPER is $3.80 per pound, +0.01 (+0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,393.00 per troy oz, +39.50 (+1.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.73 per barrel, +0.26 (+0.44%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros while one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.  One-dollar U.S. = 0.000021 Bitcoin.  Next, one U.S. greenback = 73.52 Russian rubles.  In contrast, one Washington dollar equals 3.75 Saudi Riyal.
  83. 2021 Friday K: Stick around for tonight’s Mega Millions Drawing #1633: 05, 14, 24, 25, 27, and Mega 14.  Out of 74,680 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $2,881,341.
  84. 2021 Friday L: Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says she ‘hopes that Joe Biden understands that the Chi-Coms are not our friends.’  This after “Pro-China Joe” schmoozed with Xi Jinping on the Chi-Coms earlier in the week, reportedly for two hours.  Who believes this?   Next, Dr. Alan Dershowitz tells Newsmax TV that in regard to the bogus impeachment trial occurring in the U.S. Senate, i.e., the Stalinist Show Trial Extraordinaire, “Trump’s lawyers have won.”  We concur.   Trump’s lawyers are rating higher performance marks today as their video presentation blew the Democrats’ highly produced and doctored video clips- provided to them by ANTIFA, no less, look like the steaming pile of fecal matter that it is.  We expect many of these Democrats are going to lose their seats in next year’s Mid-Term Elections.  We will work to make it so.
  85. 2021 Friday M: Speaking of “Pro-China Joe” Biden, his State Department has scheduled a ‘racism is America’s number one national security threat.’  For God’s sake, because when things get better and people are moving on, you pull us all back into the cesspool and dirty everyone, black, white, brown, red, yellow, and every shade in between.  Stop it already!  Elsewhere, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece tells him that ‘governors and mayors need $350 billion in Xi Jinping Bat Flu relief’ as without it, dimwits such as Gavin Newsom, Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Larry Hogan, and other Democrat and RINO putzes will go under and probably see their states flip from BLUE to RED.  Finally, Jen Psaki says she suspended an aide for ‘one-week sans pay’ for having told an inquiring White House reporter asking about his relationship with a fellow journalist.  Apparently, aide T. J. Ducklo told the female reporter, “I will destroy you for asking this question.”  When Psaki was asked whether the president knew about it or not, she said, “NO.  I acted on my own.”  Joe Biden did say anyone belittling anyone in his administration would ‘be fired on the spot’ in a very Donald Trump-like moment.
  86. 2021 Friday N: Another Lincoln Project founder bites the dust: Steve Schmidt.  All of these guys have problems and character flaws, covering up for pervert John Weaver who has been sleeping with 14-year-old boys.  What the hell is wrong with these RINO sickos?  More to come on this story, folks.  We learn that $50 million of the $90 million received by these scumbags went to businesses associated with said scumbags.  Once again, we have another self-enrichment scheme and lawsuits are piling up, soon to hit this bogus group of disgruntled losers.  Wow.  What will be the next shoe to drop?  George Conway?  
  87. 2021 Friday O: New York Attorney General Leticia James calls for a dismissal of the National Rifle Association’s Chapter 11 Bankruptcy claiming it’s in “bad faith.”  Meanwhile, strong defender of free and fair elections, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton finds himself smeared with allegations of ‘trading favors in exchange for a home remodel and a job for his mistress.’  Sounds like something Democrats do.  Moving on, Ric Grenell tells Newsmax a couple of things: first, the Trump impeachment trial is little more than a ‘joke.’  Next- and we have been expecting this although not as early as it’s come- Nikki Haley slams Trump, belittles him and says he’s not the ‘leader of the party.’  To this, Mr. Grenell dismisses her comments as nothing and says, ‘Trump is indeed the leader of the party.’  We expect that she- like other RINOs- will vie for the 2024 nomination of the GOP, expecting that once again, Republicans having no alternative will vote for ‘the lesser of two evils.’  Not so.  No more.  Nikki, find out at your own risk.
  88. 2021 Friday P: The World Health Organization now is backing away from its absolute denial of the Wuhan Virus coming out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  We guess they are feeling the heat.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms’ malign influence, Disney (NO one should see the movie, “Mulan”) is remaining mum on the growing news of systemic rapes of Uighur Muslim women in the ‘paradise province’ of Xinjiang, western China, a place where every manufacturer lacking a conscience has slave labor making their products.  This is where Disney filmed “Mulan.”  The NBA, yep, they are total scum, and we are big proponents of the National Basketball Association relocating their entire operation to communist China, seeing as how they love the Chi-Coms as much as they do.  
  89. 2021 Friday Q: Elsewhere, things continue going from bad to worse for New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo.  Can we expect to see this POS in an orange jumpsuit anytime soon?  Speaking of the notorious Beijing Bug sweeping the world, California is trying to correct its myriad mistakes and is begging for vaccines to arrive in the state.  Governor Gavin Newsom is such an inept fool (he’s Nancy Pelosi’s beloved nephew) that there is nothing he can do to save himself.  Instead of putting $4 billion into vaccine procurement, he’s putting it into the money-laundering California High-Speed Rail boondoggle.  WTF?
  90. 2022 Saturday: ¿Qué locuras pueden ocurrir hoy?  Quédate y descúbrelo con el resto de nosotros.  Nadie sabe lo que esta administración presidencial está arruinando hoy…

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY FEBRUARY 12, 2022, BLOG POST #4,428

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

Friday, February 12, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:   

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Saturday, February 12, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We promoted the music of the Doors, the famed Los Angeles, California, hard rocking psychedelic band beginning on Saturday, 18-February-2012 through 02-April-2012.  We hope you will seek this legendary band out and consider adding it to your ever-growing collection.

[ii] Not sure when we will get around to doing the music of Three Dog Night but if we ever return to promoting the music of famed rock bands from the 1960s and the 1970s, we sure as heck will include this stellar band, one that is still performing to this day.  We saw them in 2019 and all we can say is “Wow.”

[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iv] When we promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014, we should have promoted the music of Pablo Cruise, too, due to their being interconnected.  We certainly will one day.  Ah, well, please seek IABD out and consider adding them to your collection.

[v] We expect to promote the music of Steely Dan sometime within the next decade or so.

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

[vii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces.  Sadly, we should have been clairvoyant and presented the music of Marianne Faithful, too.  Perhaps one day we will.

[viii] Present the music of Adele one day?  If we are still around in 15-20 years, we just might.

[ix] God created the neutron bomb for wiping out maggots like these scum.  President Trump: LIGHT THEM UP!

[x] Does anyone ever question WHY Germany has become Russia’s bitch?

[xi] Climate change is a hoax, the way the Democrats and liberals around the world present it.  The climate is always changing but the solar activity- abundance or lack of sunspots and solar flares- is the driving force and it changes the climate on every planet in our Solar System.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

¡Tienes que irte, maldito Joe!

32. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022

1968 Thursday: During the Tet Offensive in Vietnam, the photo seen around the world: Saigon police chief Nguyen Ngoc Loan executes a captured Viet Cong officer with a bullet shot to the head. This would cause outrage around the First World with many claiming it to be an atrocity. We, however, have a different view: the guy was a communist terrorist and under the rules of modern warfare had NO rights whatsoever. The military codes in existence around the world recognize that terrorists, spies, guerillas, and others operating out of uniform can be executed in the field.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 284

THE VOICE OF FREEDOM FROM OCCUPIED LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-SEVENTY-EIGHT OF THE BIDEN REGIME

32. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 01, 2022:

NATIONAL FREEDOM DAY & FIRST DAY OF BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Acting U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder; U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge; Acting U.S. DHS Secretary James Loy; U.S. Secretaries of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, John F. Kerry, and Rex Tillerson; U.S. Transportation Secretaries Claude Brinegar and Andrew L. Lewis Jr.; U.S. Treasury Secretaries L. M. Shaw, William G. McAdoo, Carter Glass, and Donald Regan; U.S. Secretary of War William Howard Taft; U.S. Senator Mike Enzi; the Doors featuring Jim Morrison, the Mothers of Invention featuring Jimmy Carl Black, the Ohio Players featuring Cornelius Johnson, Rick “Super Freak” James, Steve Hackett Band featuring Nick Magnus, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers featuring Mike Campbell:

  1. 772 Tuesday: The 91st Roman Catholic Pope Adrian I assumed his position as the shepherd of all Christendom on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until December 26, 795.
  2. 900 Monday: The 117th Roman Catholic Pope Benedict IV assumed his post on this date.  He would guide his fellow Catholics until July 30, 903.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Fairport Convention had an attitude of ‘never say die’ and thus they continued their labors in the studio and on the road.  Today’s next album, “Festival Bell,” came out on January 18, 2011, and the fans hailed it as a beautiful new effort with 14 glorious tracks, 10 of which being originals and the other four covers.  The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  Again, we encourage everyone to visit their favorite nearest site for the absolute best in music, give it a good listen, and then see if you want to add it to your never-ending, always-growing collection like us.  We think you will be glad you did.

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We began presenting the music of the Mothers of Invention and of Frank Zappa beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 and concluded the presentation on Monday, 13-May-2013.  Please seek them out, we believe you will enjoy the music of this famed man and his band.

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iv] Something else of importance to note is that the U.S. was a guest of the South Vietnamese, helping them fight off the communist threat from North Vietnam and from communist thugs- the Viet Cong- in the South.  Thus, they had the right to do whatever they deemed necessary to do.  At the time of the execution, the battle was in full swing with the outcome possibly in doubt, so the SV police official did what he felt he had to do.  It is what it is and one other thing everyone should remember: IF you are going to fight a war against guerillas, do not allow the press free access to combat operations.  We believe we lost the war in South Vietnam because of two important issues: (1) the military did not capture territory and then hold it as it did in every previous war but beat the enemy and then allowed them to return the moment we left.  (2) The press cost us the war because it portrayed nothing but negative images to the home front, thus sapping the American people’s will to fight and helping sow the seeds of division by creating dissension among the American public.  Virtually every older scumbag in left-wing news today got their start shaping the antiwar movement in the 1960s and especially after 1968.  

[v] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vi] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  68. 2017 Tuesday A: Elsewhere, the U.S. Senate confirms Elaine Chao as the 18th U.S. Secretary of Transportation.  She, of course, is the daughter of a Chinese shipping tycoon and the wife of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.  Looks like “Cocaine Mitch” has a spy close to the 45th president.  As she assumes office, her predecessor- the 17.1st Acting U.S. Transportation Secretary Michael Huerta leaves office.  Huerta first began serving as the acting secretary on January 20, 2017, while Secretary Chao would serve from today until January 11, 2021.
  69. 2018 Wednesday: The district attorney of San Francisco, George Gascón says that the city by the bay is going to retroactively apply its new laws regarding the now legal use of marijuana to 5,000 old convictions which is the correct thing to do.  Far too many people in the 1960s like Dino Valenti and David Freiberg of Quicksilver Messenger Service[xiii] served time for unfair convictions.  Usually, we don’t agree with most of what comes out of Frisco but this time, yes, yes, we do.
  70. 2019 Thursday: The European Parliament votes to recognize Juan Guaidó as the legitimate ruler in Caracas which leads the Maduro regime to begin arresting foreign journalists from Spain, France, and neighboring Columbia.  The Venezuelan secret police are going out and rounding up everyone they deem to be a threat.
  71. 2020 Friday: Today is the day- or so millions of Americans hope- that the impeachment farce of President Donald J. Trump will move to a vote for acquittal or if the Democrats are lucky to get what they seek- witnesses will occur.  Let us hope for the former and not the latter.  By mid-day, the Senate voted 51-49 against calling witnesses, deflating the sputtering Democratic Party balloon.  Two Republicans- Susan Collins of Maine and Mitt Romney of Utah voted with the Democrats.  Meanwhile, the first Democrat to enter the race for the 2020 Democratic Party’s presidential nomination- former Maryland Congressman John Delaney and seemingly decent guy became the 16th Democrat to bail from the race.  He entered the race- get this- on July 28, 2017.  Oh, well.  Elsewhere, the Kung Flu continues spreading across the globe.  Italy reports its first couple of cases and prohibits cruise ships from offloading thousands of passengers.  Democrats in the U.S. tell everyone to go to “Chinatown,” to ‘go hug Chinese people.’  That advice would devastate Italy and other WOKE Western nations.  
  72. 2021 Sunday: DAY TWELVE OF THE BIDEN REGIME: the Biden White House says that IT’S going to investigate the GameStop matter.  Uh, excuse us, Joe, isn’t that the job of the Treasury or Justice Departments?   Meanwhile, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom now is coming under verbal assault from Democrats besides Republicans as the numbers demanding his recall continue increasing by the day.  This loser- Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- is going to lose his seat.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump and the GOP have raised $255.4 million in the two months since Election Day 2020.  Elsewhere, 39.6 million Americans underwent FBI background checks for gun purchases.  Heck,  some of the chef-bloggers here bought guns last year, there is NO way we wouldn’t, especially when you consider all the left-wing Marxist violence in the streets.
  73. 2021 Sunday A:  Officer Brian Sicknick- the Capitol Hill police officer slain by Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs during the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6 will lie in state in the Rotunda in the building where he served later this week.  Elsewhere, we learn- no big surprise- that 98-percent of Twitter employees donated to Democrats.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Claudia Tenney’s lead in her New York Congressional race is now becoming insurmountable and we expect a judge early this upcoming week to announce her the ‘winner.’  Next, President Donald J. Trump once again has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.   Finally, the Arizona state senate is hiring its own investigators to delve into the rampant election fraud that occurred in that state.        
  74. 2021 Sunday B: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 102,871,614 confirmed cases, +468,367, 2,225,773, confirmed deaths, +11,160, and 56,981,674 confirmed recoveries, +326,805.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 26,423,597 confirmed cases, up 140,106 from yesterday’s reporting, 446,010 confirmed deaths, UP 2,481, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported earlier this week.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic old fool.  NOW.
  75. 2021 Sunday C: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,309,463 confirmed cases, 40,697 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 26,070 confirmed cases, 410 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 315,448 confirmed cases, 4,368 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- the Northern Marianas Islands: currently, they have 131 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and 32 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 643,435 confirmed cases, 4,796 confirmed deaths, and 572,511 confirmed recoveries.   
  76. 2021 Sunday D: Warnings are being raised about Chi-Com megacorporation BGI Group, an entity that ostensibly seeks to process data from COVID-19 tests from around the world all for a generous price and plenty of donations where and when necessary to open the doors for them.  In exchange, they collect biodata of U.S. and global citizens which then is shipped back to the Chi-Coms who then store this data for future use.  Anytime the Chi-Coms say they want to ‘help’ a country is when everyone must awaken, take note, and begin working to push back against these totalitarian, fascist-communist thugs.  We must be aware of everything the Chi-Coms seek to do with U.S. biodata as you can be sure they are going to use it against the American people, NOT to help them as they proclaim.
  77. 2021 Sunday E: BIG NFL NEWS- L.A. Rams quarterback Jared Goff has been traded to the Detroit Lions in exchange for Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.  The Lions will also receive two 1st round and one 3rd round draft pick.  NO PRO BOWL THIS YEAR THANKS TO THE CHI-COMS AND THEIR FLIPPING VIRUS.
  78. 2022 Monday: Stick around for the news of the day…

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

ENDNOTES:

[i] Just like what the Democrats are attempting to do in 2020 as they try to remove President Donald J. Trump from office and to subordinate the office of the presidency- head of the Executive Branch- to the House speaker in the Legislative Branch.  How well did things work out for Europe in the 1930s-1940s?  Not so good.

[ii] We began offering the music of the Doors on Saturday, 18-February-2012 and concluded them on Monday, 02-April-2012.  We encourage everyone to seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[iii] We will present the music of Chicago sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[iv] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016 through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

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

[vi] We began promoting the music of the Grateful Dead- including Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, and Phil Lesh- beginning on Tuesday, 30-August-2011 through Wednesday, 11-January-2012.  Then, we did a second series featuring more albums by this fabled San Francisco band beginning on Friday, 09-August-2013 through Monday, 19-August-2013.  At some point, we will have to do a third series as the music from this band never ends.  Please, seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[viii] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments.

[ix] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[x] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.

[xi] We presented the music of this British prog-rock band, the amazing King Crimson, beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[xii] We should have promoted the music of Asia around the time we did King Crimson and/or Family but we failed to do so.  However, we hope to do so sometime within the next 10-15 years.  

[xiii] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  64. 2021 Friday: It appears that Democrats are cowering in their corners over what President Donald J. Trump ‘might do in the days remaining to him.’  Could he release all sorts of data on “Pro-China Joe” Biden, the Democrat leadership, and others and their close ties to the Chi-Coms?  Hence why the Dems are urging Vice President Mike Pence to commune with the Cabinet (members leaving as we speak) so they can use the 25th Amendment to remove the 45th president (Pence won’t) or why they are proclaiming they are going to launch a second impeachment against President Trump in the less than two weeks remaining in his term.  In the same vein, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi spoke to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff- General Mark A.

  66. 2021 Friday B:  Extreme intellect LeBron James says, “We live in two Americas.”  Yes, indeed, and you, you big POS, live in the upper crust one.  STFU.  Note of interest: we learned late last night that Marxist Chicago ‘Priest’ Father Michael Pfleger friend of Barack Hussein Obama- is stepping down from the priesthood seeing as how there are now allegations of child sexual abuse against him.  Oh, how the mighty fall.  On a humorous note, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO Republican from South Carolina, receives loads of catcalls and negative rhetoric as he tries to head to his plane at Reagan International Airport.   About flipping time!  Finally, we learn that chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence- Mark Strong- is the one who urged the VP not to fight the certification of the 2020 Presidential Election.  He is now barred from entering the White House grounds.  Remember that name: Mark Strong.  He hopes both he and VP Pence will have bought a future in mainstream Washington, D.C. politics.  (Note- President Trump is not going to attend the Biden-Harris inauguration but Mr. Pence will.  Florida Senator Rick Scott is also encouraging the 45th president to attend.  WHY?).  Speaking of maggots- former chief of staff General John Kelly, U.S. Army Ret., says he ‘would vote to remove Trump.’ 
  67. 2021 Friday C: President Trump awards the medal of freedom to three golfers- Annika Sorenstam, Gary Player, and Babe Zaharias.   Meanwhile, Ronna McDaniel is elected to another term as chair of the Republican National
    Committee whereas Hope Hicks says she is leaving next week.  Larry Kudlow and U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are both remaining to the end of Trump’s term.    Next, President Trump promises to be a GIANT VOICE for his followers, all 77-80 million of them.  Finally, Simon and Schuster cancels Senator Josh Hawley’s book deal following his role in contesting the election results (which all the losers- both right and left- are using as an excuse to jump ship).
  68. 2021 Friday D: The U.S. has lost 140,000 jobs, the first monthly loss since the spring when government told us ‘we need to shut everything down for two weeks so we can flatten the curve.’  Result: a destroyed economy.  Elsewhere, Dodgers’ longtime player and manager Tommy Lasorda dead at age 93.  God bless you, Tommy!  Thank you for 1988!  Meanwhile, Elon Musk becomes the richest man in the world with $195 billion which is 10 billion more than Amazon.com owner Jeff Bezos.  Finally, Georgia U.S. Senator David Perdue follows in the footsteps of fellow Republican Senator Kelly Loeffler and concedes to his opponent, Sinophile and far-left-left-left Democrat Jon Ossoff.  It is over and it is done.
  69. 2021 Friday E: Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., and former national security adviser finds himself banned from Twitter.  U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the “U.S. is not a banana republic.” Elsewhere, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasts Trump for ‘inciting an assault on democracy.’ Mind your own business, twerp.  Meanwhile, the Rupert Murdoch empire calls for Trump to go but seeks to cling to the Trump base.  Finally, a report says that pipe bombs delivered to the RNC, and the DNC contained timing devices.
