  55. 2006 Friday: Rep. Mark Foley, R-FL 16th congressional district, resigned his seat in the U.S. House of Representatives for doing some Democrats do all the time and seemingly get away with- sending inappropriate emails to a congressional page.  What a double standard but then, Republicans ALWAYS crucify their own.

  58. 2009 Tuesday: As Britain continues its national program of immunizing the hell out of everyone, a 14-year-old schoolgirl who died after being given an immunization for cervical cancer is found to have had a tumor in her heart and lungs.  What is it with forcing immunizations on everyone without checking their health situations?  Socialized medicine, folks, not good, never good, and something every sane nation must avoid.
  59. 2010 Wednesday: For the first time in two years, North and South Korea agree to hold working level military talks.  Elsewhere, in Dagestan, Russian troops get lucky and kill at least 14 Islamist militants in heavy fighting.  Good.  Cover the bodies with pig’s blood.

Take that, communists!
  61. 2012 Saturday:  After the U.S. delists the Mujahedeen-e Khalq as a terrorist entity, Iran accuses the United States of having “double standards.”  Meanwhile, the Obama administration transfers a Gitmo detainee, Omar Khadr, to Canada where the murderous POS jihadist will complete his prison sentence.

  65. 2016 Thursday:  The U.S. Congress overrides the veto of President Barack Hussein Obama that will now allow U.S. citizens to sue Saudi Arabia over the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.  Obama did not want people affected by the horrible attacks from suing the Islamic nation.  All but one of the hijackers were from Saudi Arabia; go figure!
  66. 2017 Friday: Tom Price resigned as President Donald J. Trump’s secretary of health and human services amid investigations into his use of costly charter flights for official travel at taxpayer expense.  Meanwhile, Carmen Yulin Cruz, the mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico, accused the Trump administration of “killing us with the inefficiency” after Hurricane Maria.  We must note that Mayor Cruz is a corrupt politician who was unable to distribute the vast resources that poured into the island following the storm.   Finally, the U.S. issues a no-travel warning to its citizens NOT to go to Cuba due to the ongoing sonic attacks on American citizens.  It also calls home some of the diplomatic staff in Havana thanks to the scurrilous behavior of the communist Cubans.
  67. 2018 Saturday: Tesla and its CEO, Elon Musk, agreed to pay $40 million to settle a government lawsuit alleging that Musk had duped investors with misleading statements about a proposed buyout of the company.   Elsewhere, some left-wing news sites report widespread demonstrations against center-right Brazilian businessman Jair Bolsonaro, the frontrunner in the presidential elections.  Go, Bolsonaro, go!
  68. 2019 Sunday:  Pro-Iranian Houthi rebels do a celebratory dance claiming they killed 500 Saudi soldiers, captured another 2,000, as well as wiped out a supply convoy on Saudi territory in the Najran region of the country.  Time to nuke Iran and to wipe out the Houthi scumbags. 
  69. 2020 Tuesday: A new PEW Poll shows that five percent of Trump and Biden voters MIGHT have their votes changed following tonight’s Round 1 2020 Presidential Debate in Cleveland, Ohio, depending upon who does better.  Meanwhile, Democratic Party presidential nominee “Pro-China Joe” Biden disputes he ever agreed to (1) a break after every 30 minutes and (2) that he agreed to an ear canal check to determine if either participant is wearing an ear device.  Many believe that “Gropin’ Joe” Biden cannot sustain 90 minutes of debate and that he will be seeking every avenue of support or escape.  Rush Limbaugh still speculates that something will arise that will permit “Pro-China Joe” a way out without losing face.  Dr. Jill going to come down with a sudden case of the CHI-VI?  We shall see.  Speaking of Cleveland, shop owners are boarding up windows and securing their facilities as the danger of violent mob ‘protests,’ i.e., out-of-control riots looms ever larger.  Another ‘anti-fascist group,’ Resist Fascism arrives in Cleveland ostensibly to fight against fascism but to serve as the Democratic Party’s Brown Shirts.
  70. 2020 Tuesday A: Judge Amy Coney Barrett arrives on Capitol Hill to begin meeting with lawmakers ahead of October 12 and the first day of confirmation hearings.  At least 6-8 Senate Democrats announce they won’t meet with her as a means of protest.  Meanwhile, New York City schools begin the reopening process as Mayor Bill Di Blasio continues to threaten JEWISH neighborhoods with complete shutdowns if they don’t toe the line and follow his orders.  Speaking of major cities such as New York City, we learn that since June of this year, violent crime rates have soared 53-percent over last year’s rates at the same time.  Clever work, Democrats, clever work.   Elsewhere, on the West Coast, major parts of Sonoma and Napa Counties are ablaze, once again thanks to rampant mismanagement by California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom.  Like Nero, he continues fiddling, trying to find ways by which, he can continue funding CalPERS at the expense of caring for the state’s forests.  This man must be removed from office before 2022.  Now.
  71. 2020 Tuesday B: Kuwait’s Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad Al-Sabah dies at age 91.  Meanwhile, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson severs his ties with more than 95-percent of his fans by coming out and following communist China’s dictates and endorses the Biden-Harris 2020 ticket.  Rock- you are not only a sleazy opportunist, but you also appear to be a shill for Beijing.  NO MORE ROCK MOVIES! Meanwhile, attorney for Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn- Sidney Powell- updated President Trump on his former National Security Advisor’s case and asked that ‘he not pardon the general.’  She is trying to get Judge Emmet Sullivan to recuse himself from the case or accept the Justice Department’s recommendations to drop the collapsed case. Elsewhere, Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe releases fabulous footage that shows ALLEGEDLY Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar!” Omar has operatives involved in ballot creation and ballot harvesting.  We hear from sources on the ground in Minnesota that she could very well lose her re-election bid.  Strip her of her citizenship and return her crooked butt to Somalia.
  72. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a whole– 33,484,120 confirmed cases, UP by 327,308 cases, 1,004,082 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,386 deaths, and 23,212,633 confirmed recoveries, UP by 251,197 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 7,229,559 confirmed cases, UP by 23,692 new cases, 208,335 confirmed deaths, UP by 217 new deaths, and 3,870,955 confirmed recoveries, UP by 7,882 new recoveries. 
  73. 2020 Tuesday D: 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: 816,095 confirmed cases, 15,683 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 12,351 confirmed cases, 132 confirmed deaths, and 10,215 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 90,712 confirmed cases, 2,203 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: 462,364 confirmed number of cases, 32,743 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo continues trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths when he is the one who sent COVID-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were. PUT CUOMO ON TRIAL! 
  74. 2020 Tuesday E: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day Let us look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife are relocating there.  Here they are: 233,265 confirmed cases, 1,507 confirmed deaths, and 165,191 confirmed recoveries.  Watch out for the Chi-Com rockets the Hamas goons love firing at innocent Israelis.  We know you are prepared Mo!
  75. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,452.66, DOWN 131.40 points (-0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,085.25, DOWN 32.28 points (-0.29%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,335.47, DOWN 16.13 points (-0.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,903.10 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $24.42 per troy ounce, -0.002 (-0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $882.60 per troy oz, -4.90 (-0.55%) while the price of COPPER is $3.00 per pound, +0.009 (+0.30%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,329.30 per troy oz., +57.80 (+2.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $39.13 per barrel, -0.16 (–0.41%).  Today, COCOA is $2,565.00 per metric ton, +3.00 (+0.12).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.82 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency, a known fact which is why the world must disengage with them and bring our supply chain home- ASAP.
  76. 2020 Tuesday G: National Security Director John Ratcliffe released information in a letter to Sen. Lindsey Graham- on the eve of testimony by fired FBI Director James Comey- that Hillary Clinton approved a plan with the Obama administration.  The illegal operation the two cooked up together sought to dirty 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump by tying him to Russian intelligence services.  The question is whether then Director Comey expended the same amount of effort investigating Hillary Clinton as he spent investigating then-candidate Trump, then president- elect Trump, and finally President Donald J. Trump.  Not looking good for the Obamaists coup plotters.  Is prison looming large on the horizon?   Join the Trump Third Term Movement NOW.
  77. 2020 Tuesday H: Regarding to Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court, here is today’s Democratic Party’s and Fake News Media Attack Phrase of the Day: “Illegitimate.”
  78. 2020 Tuesday I: Tonight, is the first debate between presidential contenders, President Donald J. Trump, and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden.  About half-way through the ‘grudge match,’ it would appear that Mr. Biden is managing to survive the ongoing assault from the president.  Moderator Chris Wallace is struggling to maintain control.  We believe- at this junction- that Democrats will say the president is losing due to his belligerence while Republicans will say the president was aggressive and fending off both the former veep and the moderator. This update at 6:48 P.M.  What we will say is the following: it’s an UGLY affair, no-holds barred mud wrestling at its worst.   
  79. 2020 Tuesday I: Update @ 07:39 p.m.: what a rough 96-minute debate.  President Trump allowed the anger built up after 3.5 years to unload on a feeble Vice President Biden.  The former veep managed to remain upright but towards the end of the debate, he was looking a bit wasted.  We suspect the Democrat will cancel the other two debates.  Winner?  We think the president allowed his anger to get the better of him and the former vice president did not drop dead.  What an ugly mess…
  80. 2020 Tuesday J:  Telemundo, the Spanish language media giant released a poll from the first debate between President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President Joe R. Biden.  The poll says President Trump won by a 66-percent margin to 33-percent for Mr. Biden.  Wow.  You go, Spanish speakers!   We have no clue as to what mischief the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party stooges will be up today but when we find out, you’ll find out so please, stay tuned for further developments such as the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu…
  81. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a whole– 234,031,070 confirmed cases, +551,457, 4,787,486 confirmed deaths, +10,359 and 210,856,434 confirmed recoveries, +615,696.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 397,777 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 6,301 deaths which we expect will come soon which will push the dictator past the death mark the 45th president held.  NOT GOOD, Joe, NOT GOOD.

[xii]  
  84. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,277,270 confirmed cases, 7,732 confirmed deaths, and 1,220,396 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Russia, 5th country on the list: 7,487,138 cases of the virus, 206,388 confirmed death and 6,653,941 confirmed recoveries.

  86. 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 $4.397 per gallon, $3.057 in Florida, $4.074 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other Missouri: $2.853.  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- Israel: $7.709 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,819,205,239,855 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Thailand, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany with $75 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  87. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 188 for the famed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border from one legion after another of Third World illegal alien invaders and Day No. 95 since her sole visit anywhere NEAR the border.  Where is the esteemed ‘Border Czar?’  Ah, well, Texas border counties are preparing to hammer the Biden regime with a massive lawsuit over its lack of desire to enforce the laws and to defend the nation.  Most of these people living in these counties are Latinos who happen to vote Democrat.  Just saying.
  88. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Putin regime opens a new case against imprisoned Putin dissident, Alexei Navalny.  Meanwhile, North Korea claims the development of its new hypersonic missile is for DEFENSIVE needs rather than for offensive capabilities.  Next, we have some Chi-Com news for you today: first, there will be NO overseas visitors to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics which we hope no one sends athletes to due to the Chi-Coms infecting the entire world with the Xi Jinping Never-Ending Pandemic.  Secondly, the Chi-Com air force commander issued a veiled threat to the U.S. military: “Let us meet in the skies.”  Chi-Coms, shut the f**k up.
  89. 2021 Wednesday H: Health and Medical Alerts– A new poll says that 65-percent of Americans oppose loss of jobs for those opposed to submitting to COVID-19 vaccine mandates.  Agreed.  Another poll says that more than half of the American people do not really believe that current Chi-Vi vaccines are appropriate for children, especially those 5-11 years of age.  Meanwhile, GOP senators introduce the new TREAT Act designed to counter the rationing of the drug Regeneron by the Biden regime who is cutting supplies to Red States.
  90. 2021 Wednesday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions and Authoritarianism News– Los Angeles County, California, is considering new rules/regulations for all customers going to bars and restaurants: they want COVID-19 vaccine passports or NO service.  Meanwhile, a judge in South Carolina slaps a temporary stay on enacting bans on the wearing of masks among school-aged children.  BIG GOVERNMENT wants to impose the wearing of masks on everyone.  Next, we learn that in the BIG SPENDING BILL the House speaker and her Democrat minions are promoting, there’s a big $700,000 fine for businesses NOT complying with the vaccine decrees.  Finally, the Kathy Hochul regime in New York is in the process of firing healthcare workers who did not meet the September 27, 2021, deadline to vaccinate or go on the public dole (which we believe will be cut off by government IF workers won’t vaccinate.  This is evil.  This is the Mark of the Beast and folks it looks like Joe Biden is indeed the Antitrump).
  91. 2021 Wednesday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.53 (2) AstraZeneca $59.67 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.02 (4) BioNTech $277.44 (5) Moderna $378.90.

  96. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Mob mouthpiece White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki tried to cover up for her missing-in-action, senile boss today by claiming the Three Stooges- Milley, McKenzie, and Austin- gave the dictator split opinions on what to do.  Jen, this in no way clears your boss; the man has NO clue as to what he is told much less as what to do.  Meanwhile, as the mainstream media- i.e., the fake news media- continues trying to cover for the botched Afghan withdrawal on behalf of the Biden regime, they, too, are taking increased incoming fire from across the country and around the world.  Embarrassing.
  97. 2021 Wednesday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The U.S. Department of Justice continues to aid the FALSE FLAG OPERATION conducted by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi by delaying the trials of the political prisoners scooped up on January 06, 2021, and in the immediate days and weeks following the set-up event.  They claim the delays are based upon ‘procedural issues.’  Oh, really?  Speaking of this sham subcommittee, the chairman and his thugs are sending out a flurry of subpoenas to former advisers and staffers of President Donald J. Trump.  They are attempting to make life as difficult as possible for these brave patriots.
  98. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Parents of imprisoned USMC Lt. Col. Stuart Scheller- who merely spoke his mind on the Afghan debacle- want both U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley to resign over their far too many failures while running the show on behalf of senile Joe Biden.  Meanwhile, at the hearing before the House Armed Services Committee today, the Three Stooges- Secretary Austin, Chairman Milley, and U.S. Central Command commander General McKenzie- were torn asunder by one Republican politician (with the exception of Liz Cheney who praised and defended the Three Stooges) for their failures connected to the withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Democrats did their best to circle the wagons around these three dunces but defending them proved to be impossible.  All three men must submit their resignations by the end of today.   Still, brave, patriotic souls such as Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, told the Three Stooges that ‘IF their commander in chief was NOT so out of it, all three of them would be FIRED.’  This led to angry Democrats apologizing to the three losers for the words of their conservative colleague.  Oh, wah, wah, wah!
  99. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News II– House Democrats continue trying to avert a federal government shutdown which- if it happens- will attach to them like the lips of a remora to the balls of a swimmer.  Thus, they are attempting to set up a vote with which to jack up the debt ceiling still more which will fall atop our children’s children’s children.  Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian leader of the House socialists, is doing her best to move forward with a vote on jacking up the debt ceiling.  In other shocking news, the Democrats now want to RAPE- i.e., TAX the retirement plans of the American people while providing all sorts of freebies to illegal aliens flooding into the United States.
  100. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News III– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says he is MORE outraged than ever after hearing Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley’s testimony than ever.’  All the man does is lie his ass off- Gen. Milley.  He’s a political general and nothing good ever happens to them.  Speaking of General Milley, he alluded to the fact that come spring of 2022, al-Qaida and the Taliban could commence new operations in the region.   Meanwhile, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN- a fighter if ever one existed- demanded that ‘transcripts between General Milley and his reporter pals must be produced to the Senate Armed Services Committee.’  General Milley also had to fend off attacks on him for having said that ‘Newsmax and The Epoch Times are akin to terrorists.’  Wow.  Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says, ‘he did NOT know about General Milley’s phone calls with his opposites in the Chinese Communist Party.’  We suspect NO one knew what this traitorous POS Milley was up to, friends.  Secretary Pompeo told journalist Megan Kelly that ‘NO one briefed him’ on this questionable action.
  101. 2021 Wednesday T: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3599 what with a $21 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 12, 13, 16, 17, 22, and Mega 06.  Out of 107,152 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $12,680 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) ARCO AM/PM in Stockton, CA 95210; (2) Paradise Valley Produce Market in Spring Valley, CA 91977; and (3) Speedway in Carlsbad, CA 92011.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #891 with a jackpot of $570 million up for grabs: 02, 07, 11, 17, 32, and Powerball 11.  Out of 197,406 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,361,359.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Yuba City, CA 95993.
  102. 2022 Thursday: Observation of the Day I hope the Secret Service is maintaining a watchful eye on that big overweight bull dyke, “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney.  After all, she said, that ‘she will do anything to stop President Donald J. Trump from returning to the White House.”  That tells me she is crazy enough to stalk him and to take him out should he win the nomination in 2024 and/or win the White House later that fall.  Hatred like this only occurs on the left side of the aisle.  After all, they are the ones who now label MAGA supporters as ‘Nazis.’  Like Senator John McCain (good riddance), Liz Cheney is NO Republican even though she like he has/had an ‘R’ by their name.  No, Liz Cheney has drunk from the poisoned well of Jim Jones’ cyanide-laced Kool-Aid and her hatred grows for the 45th president grows more strident by the day.  Thankfully, her career- other than as a babbling head on MSNBC- is OVER.  The voters of Wyoming showed her the door by an electoral landslide of more than 30 points.  She is loser and will soon be gone.  Let us hope she realizes her time in the limelight is over and that she will sulk off into the D.C. swamp to enjoy whatever is left of her bitter life.  I just hope that the Secret Service is on the ball because this woman is a lunatic.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich.

Trump’s second U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  It would later turn out that she was a liar as were other women- most notably those turned up (or out) by thug attorney, Michael Avenatti.  It was all a scheme to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation and drive him from the nomination.  It didn’t work.

  59. 2020 Monday A: Moving on, the Biden-Harris (or is it Harris-Biden) 2020 campaign announces it has $466 million in its coffers, having pulled in more than $100 million in the previous 48 hours by milking the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whereas the Trump-Pence campaign as $325 million on hand.  Speaking of President Trump and Justice Ginsburg, the commander-in-chief announces he will nominate his replacement pick for Justice Ginsburg on Thursday or Friday of this week.  All the while, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi promises to impeach President Trump- again!- should he fulfill his constitutional duty to nominate someone to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.   Meanwhile, well-known genius Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC says that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, moves forward with hearings on the nominee, that he ‘is playing with fire.’  Yikes.
  60. 2020 Monday B: Speaking of angry Democrats, the Dems say they are going to (1) end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate on EVERYTHING meaning every vote will be decided by the nuclear option, 50-percent plus one.  (2) They will give statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columba.  Why not give statehood to the U.S. Virgin Islands, to Guam, to Northern Marianas Islands, and to American Samoa.  (3) They plan to stack the Supreme Court with an additional five to seven justices.  (4) They plan to topple the Electoral College.  (5) They plan to increase taxes by $3 TRILLION as well as to reimpose the Obamacare mandate, all the rules and regulations overturned and removed by the Trump administration, and jump back in to the JCPOA, the Paris Climate Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  (6) They are going to grant the franchise to prisoners serving time, to felons, and to 15-and-16-year-olds.  What more can we say?  We must crush this illegitimate, Chi-Com colluding political party.  It is us or them.
  61. 2020 Monday C: Famed NBA star and noted ‘genius’ LeBron “Full of Fecal Matter” James of the Los Angeles Lakers chides Lori Loughlin, actress, and her husband who must go to prison for having bribed the university of their daughter’s choice to get her in, for allowing Loughlin to choose the facility.  LeBron says ‘it ain’t right.’  Elsewhere, a survey finds that unless Chinese Virus relief issues are soon met, 60-percent of all restaurants will close their doors forever.  Imagine all the real estate the Chi-Coms will be buying via shadow companies, straw buyers, and of course, their Democratic Party hacks.
  62. 2020 Monday D: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr labels three cities in the United States as anarchist jurisdictions- New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, for permitting and enabling out-of-control riots, mob violence, looting, rape, robbery, arson, and murder.  The AG said: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest.  We cannot waste federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance.”  The federal government seeks to strip these cities who have crippled their law enforcement via defunding or reduction so as to force them back into line.  New York City currently receives about $7 billion annually from U.S. taxpayers.  This must stop. Strip Portland and Seattle of their funding, too, until they regain their senses, or the voters replace them.   
  63. 2020 Monday D: A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled today that mail-in election ballots can be counted for up to SIX DAYS post-Election Day so long as they are postmarked on Election Day.  Bret Baier on FNC believes this will go to the Supreme Court to be overturned or put into law.  Meanwhile, President Trump is on the trail in the Midwest, stopping in Ohio and traveling elsewhere while “Pro-China Joe” Biden visited Wisconsin, there to try to re-energize his flagging base.  Question is, WHO is the real string-puller behind former VP Biden?  We suspect it’s none other than Xi Jinping and that Rep. James Clyburn is the conduit through which the alleged cash flow goes.  Think about it: Biden was at the bottom of the Democrats’ heap until Clyburn vouched for him, impeachment failed, the U.S.-Sino Trade Deal signed and then the Chi-Com Flu arrived on scene.  We don’t believe in coincidences nor should YOU.

Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 25,635 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  74. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– A report says that another 6,000 Haitians are tramping north through Mexico to Bidenville under the Del Rio, Texas, overpass.  This sounds like a job for napalm.  Just saying.  Anyhow, violence is breaking out in towns in their path as the Haitians fight one another to get on any available transportation north.  Here are the numbers from One America News for today.  First, here is the cost for caring for the invaders for just this day: $533,574,040.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for Joe Biden’s new citizens: $288,752,762,880.  Here are the numbers of illegals who have swarmed across the U.S.-Mexico border for 2021: 2,959,484.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, mind you, of the illegals lurking in the country as you read this: 36,959,484.  We believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Speaking of this disaster, today is Day No. 180 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 87 since she visited the border.  Where can we get a ‘no-show job’ like the one this loser has?  (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).
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says of Joe Biden that he ‘doesn’t even pretend on the border’ meaning he does not tell us everything is good and well when every American sees it for him-or-herself on live TV.  As the border continues its implosion, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today and said of his border policies that they are ‘ridiculous.’  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, calls the lack of a sound policy, “Insane.”
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Russian President Vladimir Putin won’t be coming to New York City to attend the U.N. General Assembly.  No, he will get his message across via diplomatic channels.  Speaking of Russia, we learned today that the Federal Bureau of Investigation delayed helping the victims of the recent Russian hacking attacks.  The question is, “WHY?”  Next Portugal has granted the Afghan girls’ soccer team asylum as their home country continues to implode under Islamism.  Meanwhile, up in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- son of one of the Rolling Stones- manages to cling to power at the head of a minute minority drastically weakened by his ignorant policies.  To get things done, the communist PM will have to engage with other political parties.  This should be fun.

  81. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I- Joe Biden delivered a canned speech to the United Nations today.  It would appear he took some of his anti-senility medicine, some of son Hunter’s crack as he was able to get through it without completely breaking down.  He called on world leaders to ‘pull together to solve global problems’ all the while giving them the nod-nod, wink-wink to send Third World castoffs to invade the United States.  Speaking of feeble Joe, a new poll shows that 62-percent of Iowans think that Joe is doing a horrible job.  Add to that the fact that the House Dems are seeking to limit the poor old fool’s presidential powers.  You know, the Dems would love to transform the presidency into a prime ministerial gig.
  82. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joy of joys!  The White House is rolling a new plan with which to combat homelessness.  Wow.  Meanwhile, as the various multi-trillion bills continue bumping up against the deadlines, the House Dems throw Joe Biden a bone by passing a stopgap spending bill that will keep the American government open until December 01, 2021.  Wow.   In other shocking news, the House Dems stripped funding from the bills they are trying to shove through to Joe Biden’s desk that will go to helping Israel protect itself with the Iron Dome missile defense system.
  83. 2021 Tuesday O: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- A Customs and Border Patrol officer who attended the Justice for January 6 rally won’t be charged.  Still, Rep. Adam “Bug Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, says the committee charged with ‘investigating’ the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, could possibly go directly to sending out subpoenas which means they want to tarnish the reputations of many, patriotic Americans while continuing to vilify President Donald J. Trump.  Oooh, scary, “Bug Eyes.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Well-known government apparatchik and professor, Anthony Codevilla, died today at age 78.  He is best remembered over his strenuous objections to the life sentence imposed on Jonathan Pollard, the man who handed classified intelligence over to U.S. ally, Israel.  Pollard eventually was released on parole in 2015 and after fulfilling the obligations imposed upon him, he emigrated to Israel.
  85. 2021 Tuesday Q: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1696 what with a $x million jackpot on the line: 36, 41, 45, 51, 56, and Mega 13.  Out of 150,280 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,952 apiece.  In Washington state where Chef Vladdie lives, one person got all five numbers and the Mega for a prize of $432,000,000.
  86. 2022 Wednesday: Friends, whenever we call the Chi-Coms out our numbers tend to suffer but I am going to continue with my thoughts anyway on the outcome of a Chi-Com invasion of Taiwan.  Most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM tend to believe that Taiwan- FREE CHINA- is an undeclared nuclear power and why not?  Back on September 22, 1979, which is tomorrow, a U.S. satellite detected a double flash in the South Atlantic well below South Africa.  Most surmise it was a nuclear weapons test either by South Africa or Israel or possibly a joint operation.  We, however, believe Taiwan was the nation conducting the test and much evidence points in that direction.  It would make sense that a technologically superior Taiwan was working at building a clandestine nuclear weapons program because at some point in the future, the Chi-Coms would come-a-calling being the bullies that they are.  We suspect any approaching invasion fleet would find itself in deep trouble if underwater nukes were detonated several yards beneath the flotilla.  Virtually every vessel, submarine, and troop transport in the area would be swamped with tsunamis the likes of which the world has never witnessed.  Aircraft carriers, warships, transports, virtually an entire fleet would disappear along with every soldier, sailor, marine, and airman as did the Mongol fleet that disappeared in a massive tsunami while attempting to invade Japan centuries ago.  This would be enough to cause Xi Jinping and his cronies to be strung up in the streets and who knows?  Perhaps freedom would return to the mainland and peace in Asia ensue?  Sure, at some point the world needs to obliterate that overweight hog, Kim Jong-Un but that little POS is a piker compared to Chairman Xi, the wannabe world dictator.  Let me know your mind- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick delivered its next studio album- “Standing on the Edge”- on July 19, 1985.  The album featured their original producer Jack Douglas back at the control panel.  Once again, the band delivered a spirited group of rockers and of course their pop-ballads.  “Tonight, It’s You” received a great deal of airplay and is among the best tunes the band has ever done.  The lineup remains Robin Zander (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and Jon Brant (bass, backing vocals).  Joining the Illinois-based rockers is Mark Radice on keyboards.  We hope everyone will seek this album out at their favorite site for the absolute best in music because let’s face it: the AICPENDBLOG.COM offers nothing but the best in music.  You won’t find f**king Maroon 5, you won’t find twerking whores, you won’t find has-been lesbians, and you won’t find young men who aren’t sure as to whether they are men or chicks.  It is what it is and we thank you for joining us here daily.

[x]   Elsewhere, California- another lunatic locale- passes a bill that will commit the state to carbon-free energy by 2045.  Two years later, the state is suffering rolling brown-and-blackouts and Sacramento has NO CLUE as what to do- that’s what you get for shutting down the state’s last nuclear power plant in El Diablo Canyon with NOTHING to take its place!
  69. 2019 Tuesday: After being crossed one too many times, President Donald J. Trump hands his third national security advisor John Bolton his walking papers.  We have no clue as to what happened to Mr. Bolton, he seemed to be a normal guy at one time whereas now, we see him for the conniving RINO he is, and a man determined to go to war with Iran whatever it takes and whatever the cost.  Didn’t you learn from Iraq, John?  Good riddance.
  70. 2020 Thursday:  Tonight, the NFL season kicks off in Kansas City where the 2020 Superbowl winners the Chiefs will do battle with the visiting Houston Texans.  No one is participating an exciting season what with all the promised Black Lives Matter protests.  Our view: we don’t care, we won’t be watching.  Elsewhere, last week, first-time jobless benefits claims hit 884 thousand.   As for the economy, we learn that for the 2nd quarter consumer spending was down 34.1-percent.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announced his list of potential SCOTUS nominees in his second term yesterday.  Here are the potential nominees: (1) Bridget Bade, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals; (2) Daniel Cameron, 51st Kentucky state AG; (3) Sen. Tom Cotton, R-AR; (4) Paul Clement, attorney with Kirkland & Ellis, LLP; (5) Sen. Ted Cruz, R-TX; (6) Stuart Kyle Duncan, 5th Circuit Court of Appeals; (7) Steven Engel, Assistant AG for the Office of Legal Counsel of the US Dept. of Justice; (8) Noel Francisco, former solicitor general of the U.S.; (9) Sen. Josh Hawley, R-MO; (10) James Ho, 5th Circuit Court of Appeals; (11) Gregory Katsas, Circuit Court of Appeals of Columbia Circuit; (12) Barbara Lagoa, 11th Circuit Court of Appeals; (13) Christopher Landau, ambassador; (14) Carlos Muñiz, Florida Supreme Court; (15) Martha Pacold, District Judge on Northern Illinois; (16) Peter Phipps, 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals; (17) Sarah Pitlyk, U.S. District Court of Eastern Missouri; (18) Allison Jones Rushing, 4th Circuit Court of Appeals; (19) Kate Todd, deputy assistant to president and part of legal counsel; and Lawrence VanDyke, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
  71. 2020 Thursday A: Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi says that ‘Joe Biden is going to make a great president’ and that in eight weeks, the Senate will be in the hands of the Democrats and the numbers of Dems in the House will be insurmountable.  The speaker’s Aricept® must be working really well today for her to express such confidence but when 42-percent of likely black voters say they are going to vote for President Trump, the Democratic Party’s house is ablaze.  Keep being confident, Madam Speaker, going to be fun seeing what you have to say on November 4.  Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden has NO campaign events today after President Donald J. Trump blasted the old bigot for using a teleprompter to answer scripted questions.  Ai-yi-yi!  Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, he appeared before a massive crowd in Michigan today.  Stunning!

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 358,559 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 45,519 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xviii]        
  80. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.395 per gallon, $3.005 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.880 in Washington state. [xix]    Let us look at one other location- Arkansas: $2.848.  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- Yemen: $6.415 per U.S. Gallon.[xx]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,746,035,441,578 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after All Others, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Japan with $1,251,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  81. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 170 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 77 since her singular visit to the slowest section of the border.  What a job.  Next, here are the numbers of illegal aliens in the country as well as what they are costing us, cost first: $517,985,920 is the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders for just this day.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the illegal aliens for the year to date: $276,682,440,704.  Third, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed into the country this year: 2,835,773.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the total numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States: 36,835,772.  The news reported today that a new illegal alien caravan consisting of 14,000 Haitians, Cubans, and West Africans is forming up in Colombia waiting to cross into Panama.  Sounds like a job for napalm.  (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).
  82. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Vatican rejects Israeli criticism concerning Pope Francis’ ignorant comments on Jewish law.  Elsewhere, Australia- rapidly becoming a corrupt, criminal state is banning Ivermectin for off-label use in combatting the Dink-a-Link Fever.  What is wrong with these idiots in Australia?  Answer: just look at the ‘follow the money’ segments.  Speaking of overseas, as cases of the Delta variant skyrocket in Britain thanks to the Chi-Coms keeping this pandemic ongoing and causing problems, their economy is collapsing into the crapper.
  83. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– After Joe Biden giving Vladimir Putin the nod several months back, the Russians announce the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline from the Baltic to Germany and says that if Ukraine wants the money to keep flowing, they had better begin showing Moscow some good will.  Speaking of the Russkies, they are accusing the United States of interfering in THEIR elections.  Wow.  Go figure.
  84. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Sadly for the Joe Biden regime, the creators of the COVID-19 booster shots say there may be NO need for them.  We knew that.  Meanwhile, the Food and Drug Administration official says the FDA is hopeful that kids under age 12 will soon be able to get COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots which will generate billions more dollars that will find their ways into the pockets of Deep State apparatchiks and elected officials.  Ah, the classic money-go-round is alive and well.
  85. 2021 Friday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– Restrictions imposed by dictator Joe are being met with growing resistance.  Governors Greg Abbott, R-TX, and Ron DeSantis, R-FL, vow to fight tooth and nail against the unconstitutional edicts pouring out of the White House like fecal matter from a duck’s ass.  Florida and Texas are not the only two states fighting back against this senile dictator.  Montana, Wyoming, Arizona, South Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Alabama, South Carolina, and Georgia are and by next Wednesday, California should be joining them in combatting this un-American, pro-communist regime.  We look for more states to climb aboard.  Joe Biden is slamming these brave governors as being ‘cavalier.’  Sadly, for the Biden regime, an appeals court has reinstated “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ ban on mask mandates in the Sunshine State’s schools.  Masks are optional and teachers’ unions need to STFU.
  86. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News II– Elsewhere, the Los Angeles Unified School District is taking heat over their bogus Chi-Vi vaccine mandate requiring ALL students aged 12 and up to undergo vaccination whether they or their parents want them to or not.  American people, RESIST.  These people are using the pandemic to alter the way Americans live beyond the point of repair and we are NOT going to permit them to do this.  RESIST!
  87. 2021 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $45.59 (2) AstraZeneca $56.26 (3) Johnson & Johnson $166.97 (4) BioNTech $349.19 (5) Moderna $449.38.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $58.83 (3) Johnson & Johnson $175.04 (4) BioNTech $334.30 (5) Moderna $416.70.  We speculate the reason for the drop in some of the prices between this week and last week is that people are growing warier of the vaccines by the minute.  Hence, the push for more vaccines and more mandates.
  88. 2021 Friday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.00 (2) General Dynamics: $201.60 (3) Boeing: $210.30 (4) Lockheed Martin: $345.88 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $354.10.  Here is what these stocks were worth a week ago today: (1) Raytheon: $83.65 (2) General Dynamics: $202.46 (3) Boeing: $218.17 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.00 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $365.93.
  89. 2021 Friday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.30 (2) DuPont: $70.49 (3) Honeywell: $222.37 (4) 3M: $184.55 (5) Teijen: $1,666.00.  These companies are making money hand over fist.  We will keep you posted.
  90. 2021 Friday O: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.90 (2) Maple Leaf Farms-Tofurkey: $21.42.  This is the next big push.  We will continue developing it but the ‘meat is evil’ crowd is going to continue pushing for meatless meat which is not right.  We are drawing ever closer to Soylent Green-like sustenance.
  91. 2021 Friday P: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump released a new ad commemorating the jihadist terrorist attacks on New York City, the Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Thank you, Mr. President, thank you.   Next, President Trump also said that the ‘downside of a 2024 run for the White House is that he would be saving CNN.’
  92. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s approval rating has fallen to 39-percent with 49-percent disapproval and yet the pro-Beijing POS continues forging ahead with his plan to communize the United States.  Meanwhile, as the Biden regime continues waging war on ALL Trump appointees remaining in the government, Sean Spicer says it’s ‘frankly insulting’ to have his (military) board service questioned.’  The Biden regime does NOT want any Trump appointees left anywhere in government.  That is Barack Hussein Obama for you. 
  93. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Mob mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that- get this- the Taliban is ‘businesslike and professional.’  In other stupid regime news, Joe Biden called his boss in Beijing- Xi Jinping- so the two dictators could set some parameters, so the two nations don’t come into conflict (especially when the Chi-Coms begin the invasion of Taiwan).
  94. : Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is defending the mass resettlement of Afghan refugees across the United States even as a growing pandemic of measles is breaking out among them.  The GOP is demanding answers on the numbers, the locations, and the vetting of all these ‘refugees.’  Silence is all they get in answer.  Meanwhile, White House Chief of Staff- and Obama stooge- Ron Klain is receiving loads of blowback for an unwise retweet related to the Chi-Com virus vaccines.  The tweet said that everything the Biden regime is doing related to the China virus is the ultimate work-around.  Lastly, the Biden regime is appealing a recent court ruling against DACA.
  95. 2021 Friday T: Political News I– Rep. Greg Murphy, R-NC 3rd congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today by saying his ‘COVID-19 mandates are merely a cover for his disaster in Afghanistan and the calamity on the U.S.-Mexico border.’  Next, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer warned Democrats calling for him to retire that ‘what goes around comes around.’  Ouch.  Elsewhere, former U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams says that ‘Joe Biden has painted people- and NOT the Chi-Vi- as the enemy.’  (Note- Joe is good at doing this, he blames everyone else for his own lies, ineptitude, and mistakes). 
  96. 2021 Friday U: Political News II– Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-FL 7th congressional district, says there is NO way she can vote for the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bull-crap.  Good for you.   Next, former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer is nudging her former colleague, Senator Dianne Feinstein, DS-CA, to retire.  Here is what WE think: the Dems know that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is going down in the recall election next week and if Di-Fi would like to step down NOW, “Nazi” Newsom could then appoint himself U.S. senator prior to the end of the day on Tuesday.  Many have sought to encourage Di-Fi to retire before, but she always waves them off.  Will she continue doing so or will the senile old battle ax submit to the leftist mob?
  97. 2021 Friday V: Political News III– Andrew Yang- growing increasingly disillusioned with the Democratic Party- is forging ahead with the formation of a new political party.  Good for you.  In other news, Arizona has sold its Unilever bonds following anti-Semite Ben and Jerry’s outrageous move to ban its ice cream from being sold in Israel because of what they call apartheid.  Screw Ben and Jerry, their ice cream has always sucked anyway.  Tillamook, now that is ice cream of which to be proud.   In other news, as U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken instructs State Department officials in the aftermath of the Afghanistan implosion to ‘look around the corner’ (whatever that means), Rep. Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, says the numbers of U.S. passport holders remaining in Afghanistan far outnumbers what the Biden regime claims.  This story of abandonment of U.S. citizens is NOT going away no matter how many mandates old Joe whips out of his backside.
  98. 2021 Friday W: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1693 what with a $368 million jackpot on the line: 20, 32, 35, 47, 64, and Mega 18.  Out of 110,398 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $30,055.
  99. 2022 Saturday: Observation of the Day-  The only reason WHY Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom survived his recall last year is because of voter apathy, normal Democratic Party shenanigans, and the failure of the Republican National Committee getting behind the best candidate, giving him or her the necessary cash, and pushing him or her across the finish line.  California is NOT a BLUE state, all one need do is to look at the county election maps across the state and to see that they are almost all RED.  Add to that the fact that no one likes Gavin Newsom- including most Democrats- and we could easily have dumped this worthless POS.  Ah, well, while he’s warning Californians to avoid using ENERGY during the hottest portions of the day all the while wearing a fleece jacket and cap tells you that this man is little more than a pompous nimrod who is extremely vulnerable IF ONLY, we can get voters out to throw him out of office in November.  Singlehandedly, he has driven our state from being the best in the nation to the absolute worst with high power costs- when you can get it- high housing costs (millions of illegal aliens are getting free apartments which kills it for everyone else), high fuel costs, high food costs, crumbling infrastructure, and the wasting of resources rather than husbanding them.  We have plans to create more water storage and canals with which to move excess water about the state but oh, no, the fresh water flows out to sea to protect an invasive species of fish.  This November, we must turn everyone out and vote this POS and all his cronies out of office.  Ronna McDaniel, are YOU going to help us or are you going to continue ignoring the people of California crying out for deliverance from this Jacobin POS?  Let me know what you think- Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[i] 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.”

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

[iii] Not sure as to when the AICPENDBLOG.COM will promote the music of the Aerosmith but when we do, you will also see the music of Blondie and Talking Heads shared as well.  Please, keep your eyes open for the day this magnificent event occurs.

[iv] We promoted the music of King Crimson, one of the greatest prog-rock bands of all time beginning on Monday, 20-October-2014 through Sunday, 21-December-2014.  We hope you will check them out as the remain active to this day.

[v] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[vi] We look forward to doing the music of Willie Dixon along with other great bluesmen of the era like Muddy Waters, and all the rest of the great voices of America that made the music of our country what it is.

[vii] When we return to promoting American bands, Cheap Trick will be towards the top so please stay alert.  You won’t want to miss them.

[viii] We hope to share the music of Nirvana with the world within the next decade or so when we will do a series of Grunge Rock bands.

[ix] The French are under numerous terrorist threats and yet, they won’t discuss them out of fear of offending the massive Muslim population the dimwits have allowed to overrun their country.  Round them up and deport them back to whence they came.

[x] Any college geography class will drive this point home.

248. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 05, 2022

I have a message for every GOP candidate: DON’T talk about Ukraine, the war or its borders. No, talk about OUR borders and the unprecedented illegal alien invasion and the shocking movement of illegals throughout our country. DON’T talk about the price of crudities, talk about the price of GROCERIES, GAS, HOUSING, and AUTOMOBILES. DON’T talk about personalities, talk about violence in the streets, leniency for criminals, carjackings, assaults, rapes, and homicides.

  73. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.397 per gallon, $3.018 in Florida, $4.071 in Hawaii, and $3.890 in Washington state. [xx]    Let us look at one other location- U.S. Virgin Islands: $3.023.  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- Albania: $6.148 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,726,026,820,005 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Arab Emirates, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico with $49 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.
  74. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– We know it is Labor Day weekend but when one has a position of extreme importance as does ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, one would think you would work around the clock- and then some.  Today is Day No. 165 for one of California’s worst politicians ever to go to Washington, D.C., to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 72 since her sole visit to the region.  Shame.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion overrunning our country.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the Third World’s cast-offs: $721,943,360.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the infestation for just this year: $271,406,940,160.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegals who have swarmed into the country for the year 2021: 2,781,703.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE low estimate for the number of illegals roaming across the United States: 36,781,704.  Note, the AICPENDBLOG.COM believes the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million.  NOT GOOD. (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).
  75. 2022 Monday: I am a little bit shocked at some of the comments made by my colleague and friend, Itzi Nakamura, over the course of this past week.  We always knew she was a hardcore liberal, but we were beginning to have some hope that she would cross over to our side.  She did hit on something yesterday that I feel is worth noting she said that IF the DOJ did not have federal agents arrest President Donald J. Trump at his rally in the Keystone State, that all the blab from the Biden regime was politics.  Well, it is politics.  Nothing but frigging politics which is why I have a message for every GOP candidate: DON’T talk about Ukraine, the war or its borders.  No, talk about OUR borders and the unprecedented illegal alien invasion and the shocking movement of illegals throughout our country.  DON’T talk about the price of crudities, talk about the price of GROCERIES, GAS, HOUSING, and AUTOMOBILES.  DON’T talk about personalities, talk about violence in the streets, leniency for criminals, carjackings, assaults, rapes, and homicides.  DON’T cower in fear from the matter of abortion, say, “We can all agree on first-trimester abortions but after that, the ONLY reason to delay abortions to the second, third trimesters or post-birth is because people are BUYING FETAL BODY PARTS as though they are some sort of sick commodity, hence why we call the ‘Pro-Choice Movement,’ what it is: the Pro-DEATH Movement.  We can win in November, and I believe we will, just avoid talking about the crap the Dems want YOU to talk about.  Avoid that at all costs.  We will continue tomorrow.  Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[vi] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

  56. 2014 Wednesday:  Facebook reports that over 90% of its tech employees are Asian or white, while women make up only 15% of tech employees and 31% of all employees; COO Cheryl Sandberg notes that more women are also needed in leadership roles at the company—something they are striving to do.  Elsewhere, Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki of Iraq calls for ‘national unity’ seeing as how the ISIS trash have overrun the town of Yathrib, 54 scant miles north of Baghdad.  (Note- this is what happens when a POS president like Barack Hussein Obama yanks the U.S. out of Iraq and then has to send America’s war-fighters back in to stabilize the mess he inflicted on himself and on the Iraqis).
  57. 2015 Thursday: For the second time in three years, the U.S. Supreme Court upholds Obamacare in a 6-3 decision, outraging most Americans but causing the Obama Administration to dance the jig.  This is not right and yet, no one—including the Republican Party—will fight against it.  What do the Obamaists have on Chief Justice John Roberts? 
  58. 2016 Saturday: After the new government of Taiwan refuses to accept the One-China Policy and bow down to the commies in Beijing, the Chi-Coms sever communications with the brave island.  They must bow down and kiss the ground the Chinese Communist Party tells them to kiss.  F**k them.  IF Donald Trump wins in November, he will defend Taiwan.  If the Democrats win, it’s ‘adios amigos.’
  59. 2017 Sunday: In Ahmedpur East, Pakistan, a tanker truck carrying oil bursts into violent flames following an explosion, claiming at least 200 lives, and injuring countless others as they sought to scavenge oil on the ground.   Elsewhere, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad arrives in the city of Hama in his first visit to the community since the start of all the anti-government foolishness that has plagued the country since the beginning of the Arab Spring.  He came to attend the Eid al-Fitr holiday prayer services.
  60. 2018 Monday: In Lake County, California, as flames from a raging wildfire burn more than 8,200 acres, Governor Jerry Brown, Democrat, declares a State of Emergency in the area.  Meanwhile, in response to economic sanctions imposed on the United States by the European Union, famed motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson announces it will begin moving some of its production abroad.
  61. 2019 Tuesday: San Francisco, California, a city where garbage, human feces, and toxic waste lines many of the streets, the city’s leadership steps up and does something extremely important: it bans E-cigarettes.  Wow.  Meanwhile, the White House appoints Stephanie Grisham press secretary and communications director.  Elsewhere, on the other side of the world in the Egyptian city of Arish, ISIS thugs descend on a checkpoint and in the resulting melee, seven Egyptian law enforcement officers and a civilian are killed while at least four and possibly five Islamists are killed.
  62. 2020 Thursday: Inexorably, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu continues marching around the world.  In the United States, Democrats gleefully recite all the polls showing “Pro-China Joe” Biden with an insurmountable 14-point lead, in many battleground states, as well as across the nation.  It’s all over, folks, according to the leftists, “NO point going to the polls.”  My, my, my, I guess we shall see.  Here are the global stats for the COVID Crisis (thank you, communist China): 9,494,571 confirmed cases, 484,155 confirmed deaths, and 4,782,910 confirmed recoveries.  
  63. 2020 Thursday A: In the United States, here are today’s stats for the Chinese Virus Crisis: 2,463,563 confirmed cases, 126,185 confirmed deaths, and 763,814 confirmed recoveries.  You know the drill: in the three states in which, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, Golden State first: 195,571 confirmed cases, 5,733 confirmed deaths, but alas, NO mention of confirmed recoveries- is Gov. Gavin Newsom colluding with his Beijing bosses?  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 835 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 686 confirmed recoveries.  In the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 30,318 confirmed cases, 1,300 confirmed deaths, but like other BLUE STATES, no mention of confirmed recoveries.  For interest’s sake, here are the stats for the Empire State where dimwit Governor Andrew “The Moron” Cuomo, a man ‘who’s single and ready to mingle’ according to his mentally challenged younger brother, CNN anchor and victim of Roid Rage, Chris, here are the stats: 390,415 confirmed cases, 24,800 confirmed deaths, and golly gee whiz, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us not forget, too, that Gov. Cuomo is responsible for most of the deaths in his state by sending coronavirus infected patients into rest homes! 
  64. 2020 Thursday B: Here are today’s stock market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,745.60, UP 299.66 points (1.18%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 10,017.00, UP 107.84 points (1.09%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,083.76, UP 33.43 points (1.10%).

  66. 2021 Friday A: Joe Biden To Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 301,029 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 158,620 deaths  
  67. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,813,332 confirmed cases, 63,495 confirmed deaths, and 2,072,095 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,363,489 confirmed cases, 37,768 confirmed deaths, and 2,174,419 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 37,484 confirmed cases, 515 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 451,871 confirmed cases, 5,939 confirmed deaths, and 225,431 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., South Dakota: they have 124,492 confirmed cases, 2,030 confirmed deaths, and 122,292 confirmed recoveries.[ix]   
  68. 2021 Friday C: Foreign COVID Stats Of The Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 840,638 confirmed cases, 6,430 confirmed deaths, and 833,221 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country-  Syria, 128th country on the list: 25,287 cases of the virus, 1,859 confirmed deaths and 21,774 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  69. 2021 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,433.84, UP 237.02 points (+0.69%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,360.39, DOWN 9.32 points (-0.065%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,280.70, UP 14.21 points (+0.33%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $74.00 per barrel, -0.05 (-0.07%).  The price of GOLD is $1,781.80 per troy oz., +4.00 (+0.22%) while the price of SILVER is $26.19 per troy ounce, -0.10 (-0.39%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,108.20 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.42%) while the price of COPPER is $4.28 per pound, -0.02 (-0.37%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,637.10 per troy oz, -3.16 (-0.12%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $19,250.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-2.53%).

  70. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.258 per gallon, $2.940 in Florida, $3.997 in Hawaii, and $3.693 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New Mexico: $3.018.  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- Taiwan: $3.945 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,448,291,778,032 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Bermuda, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Netherlands with $70 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xviii]
  71. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Border arrests top one-million during Fiscal Year 2021.  Wow.  Next, by our count, today is Day #94 that ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge and voila, like a maggot appearing on a dog turd, she showed up in the El Paso sector and blamed the problems along the border on- you guessed it- President Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, once in El Paso, perhaps the slowest crossing point for the illegal alien tidal wave, she chose to blast the GOP instead of offering competent fixes for the border crisis.  Dimwit.  Speaking of “Kooky Kamala,” former Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan says that the ‘vice president’ won’t accomplish a thing at the border.
  72. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Canadian leader Justin Trudeau says that Pope Francis should apologize on Canadian soil for what happened in Catholic-run First Peoples’ schools where numerous unmarked graves have turned up.  Mr. Trudeau, those Catholic nuns running the schools most likely were Canadian Catholic nuns so you should stop while you are ahead, doofus.   If you wish to see true persecution and discrimination against the indigenous peoples of North America, look no further than Canada and Mexico before you start sniveling about the United States’ treatment of Native Americans.
  73. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The filthy city by the bay- San Francisco- is going to require ALL city employees- 35 thousand of them to be precise- to get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.  Whether they like it or not!  (Seems like we have heard this before from Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom when he was mayor of Frisco and was marrying gays at city hall.  It was against the law back then and he blew it off.  He told his critics that ‘whether you like it or not, it’s gonna happen so get with the program bigots.”  What a lovely fellow.  Going to be amazing watching him go down in the recall election.
  74. 2021 Friday I: Health and Medical Alerts– What’s up with Joe Biden?  Not only does he say black people are too ignorant to get by in life without help from Uncle Joe, now, Hispanics are, too, because- and this is a good one- according to the drooler-in-chief, “they won’t get the vaccine because they fear being deported immediately afterward.”  WTF, Joe, you aren’t deporting anyone now so who is fearful of getting the vaccine and then getting placed aboard the southbound Border Patrol bus and sent back whence the f**k they came?  (Note- what the hell is up with this bigoted POS claiming to be president, flinging out all sorts of racist comments sans any kind of pushback?  Where are all these RACE WARRIORS fighting against bigots, racists, and white supremacists?)
  75. 2021 Friday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– The state senate in Pennsylvania has approved a bill requiring a constitutional amendment with which to codify VOTER ID in the state’s founding documents.  Excellent.  In Georgia, both Governor Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger are pushing back against the unlawful overreach of the Department of Justice threatening to trash their new voting laws.  President Donald J. Trump says that citizens of the Peach State should sue their state government over the crooked, ‘rigged election.’  Amen.  What amazes us is the fact that the Georgia voting rights law is less strident than say the ones in New York or in Colorado and yet, that little trollop, Kristin Clarke, the little racist heading the civil rights division at the Justice Department could care less.  And you ask why WE believe the 2020 Election was stolen?  NO one in their right mind would vote for this crap, no one.
  76. 2021 Friday K: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I–  Former Minneapolis Police Officer received a sentence from Judge Peter Cahill today of 270 months in prison.  The prosecution was seeking 30 years while the defense was seeking probation.  The judge issued his verdict and in a 20-plus page addendum added his reasoning in writing so that everyone would be able to see and understand his thought processes on the verdict.  (Note- almost immediately, people outside the courthouse were wailing and moaning.  STFU already, George Floyd’s family is now fabulously wealthy so they most likely are pleased that erstwhile son George took one for the team).  Elsewhere, the union head of prison employees says that the Bureau of Prisons is facing tough decisions without proper funding in the upcoming budget.
  77. 2021 Friday L: Popular Culture News– A new poll says that 3 out of 4 respondents believe it’s unfair for women to be forced to compete with mentally deranged young boys and men claiming to be girls.  Only one person out of four believes that girls should be forced to compete with males.  Look, we have offered some fixes for this problem.  First, IF boys want to be girls, then they should undergo full transition from male to female meaning everything gets snipped off and you have undergone at least a year to get the testosterone out of your system.  Second, IF girls must be forced to compete with un-snipped boys and young men, girls should be allowed to dope as this will even the playing field.  Third and final alternative, just create a third category of sports: TRANNY SPORTS.  We believe everyone would watch TRANNY SPORTS because who doesn’t love a good ‘freak show?’
  78. 2021 Friday M: California State News– California’s government is asking ALL Californians NOT to charge their electric vehicles during Peak Hours.  Hmmm, what can go wrong with this debacle?  Well, if you lived in a town like Paradise, California, which burned down more than 20,000 acres back in 2018.  People were trapped in the town what with only one or two roads out of the area which were both ablaze.  The death toll was frightening but imagine how much worse it could have been had people been reliant upon EVs.  We will drive gas-guzzling cars to the day we die because we will never bow down to the Green Meanies.
  79. 2021 Friday N: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1671 has a $50 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 17, 20, 42, 45, 65, and Mega 12.  Out of 49,933 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $12,402.
  80. 2022 Saturday: Today marks Day #521 of the illegal Joe Biden regime.  We tick off the minutes every day until we can see the return of the legitimate President Donald J. Trump to his rightful position in the White House.  This is WHY the fake news media, the criminals in the Democratic-Socialist Party (and among the RINO wing of the GOP), and the street thugs in Antifa and Black Lives Matter continue pursuing the freedom fighters of the nation by vilifying and ridiculing them.  Ridicule all you want.  The time is coming and it’s coming soon.  Stick around and discover the truth along with all of us.  You will be glad you did (including the traitorous scum trying to topple the country and sell it out to the Chi-Coms).

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every now and then, a movie soundtrack or cut from a movie soundtrack breathes NEW LIFE into an older band.  The song, “Kokomo” from the Tom Cruise movie, “Cocktail,” was just such a track and suddenly, the Beach Boys had their first Number One hit since “Good Vibrations” several decades earlier.  The band went into the studio and came out with a new album, “Still Cruisin’” that came out on August 28, 1989.  The album featured the same lineup as the previous album but this record was far better.  We hope you will investigate it to your exacting standards but we suspect that you will enjoy this album as much as we do.  Check it out ASAP.  You will be glad you did.

2009 Friday: Following ‘free elections’ in the Islamist hellhole of Iran, people protest them as being ‘unfair.’ Of all the Middle Eastern nations in which, President Barack Obama interfered during the “Green Revolutions,” Iran was the only one in which, he didn’t. Go figure.

  64. 2020 Friday: Leftists continue causing trouble around the country, trouble we believe is being funded by Beijing and on the ground by their Democratic Party colluders.  Shame on them.  Meanwhile, the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, aka CHAZ, continues to exist, a place where robberies, rapes, and beatings are increasing exponentially. Various groups are now fighting for supremacy in there, how soon before we have outright violence, public whippings, and even executions?  Meanwhile, the Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a committed Marxist, says ‘it’s akin to the summer of love.’  Yeah, right. It is high time for the U.S. government to put both Beijing and their Democratic Party lackeys on notice that we are not going to put up with this crap.  Enough is flipping enough!  Sadly, statues across the country have been vandalized, torn down, and/or destroyed.  Not good.

  72. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day No. 82 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in sole charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and lo and behold…she has not visited it today nor will she.  What a loser.  You know things are bad when one’s own political party- in this case, the Democrats- have no words to express how disappointed they are with her job performance.  Loser.
  73. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Communist China passes a new ‘anti-sanctions act,’ (Not sure what they mean by this?) in which they will deny visas, freeze assets, and deport into permanent internal exile anyone who criticizes their murderous, Nazi-like regime.  Go figure.  Speaking of thuggish states, Russian President Vladimir Putin- in office until 2036 (how’s that for longevity?)- says the relationship between him and his nation with the United States has drastically declined since the ‘drooler-in-chief’ “Pro-China Joe” Biden usurped the White House.
  74. 2021 Saturday H: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joe Biden’s earpiece has nominated Carlos Del Toro to become secretary of the United States Navy.  Speaking of the U.S. military, the GOP is pushing the Biden regime to increase national defense spending as more and more people continue pointing out the sad fact that the Chi-Coms are speedily increasing the size of their military in preparation for war with the United States.  (Note- we encourage launching a first strike on the Chi-Coms with all tools available in our arsenal while continuing to increase the size of our own to be able to contend with a war on numerous fronts).
  75. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has announce an emergency meeting so they can begin delving into the growing reports of myocarditis in mostly young men who have answered the Siren’s call to go get themselves vaccinated with a vaccine that has ONLY ‘emergency clearance,’ a vaccine in which the drug manufacturers have ‘qualified immunity’ (something they seek to strip away from cops), and a vaccine in which more than 5,000 people in the past six months have died from getting.  Various sources in the medical industry in the United States have informed us that ANY DRUG with 100 deaths or more associated with it would already be pulled from the market.  Go figure.  In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu Virus news, Rep.  Devin Nunes, R-CA 22 congressional district, continues to sound the alarm over all the secrecy surrounding the Wuhan Institute of Virology. 
  76. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump spoke out on the ‘jobless union workers who voted in lockstep for Joe Biden and now with the Keystone XL Pipeline closed, they are sitting at home drawing unemployment.’  (Note- someone should take AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka out and give him a good thrashing.  Perhaps when America’s labor unions vote for leadership again, they will go with an ‘America-first’ supporter rather than an overweight, ignorant, political hack who can’t get his nose out of the butt cracks of Democratic-Socialist hacks).
  77. 2021 Saturday K: Political News II– Far-left liberal commentator Bill Maher blasts his left-wing cronies for failing to acknowledge the progress made on racial and social fronts.  Bill generally calls them the way he sees them.  Elsewhere, at the MAGA FRANK Rally in New Richmond, Wisconsin, Diamond and Silk lambasted Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district in front of a vast crowd of American patriots, saying of this unpatriotic POS that ‘if she doesn’t love her country then she’s free to go.’  Of Joe Biden, they said ‘hell no to Jim Joe Crow Joe, that the Swamp installed him, the American people did not elect him.’ 
  78. 2021 Saturday L: Health And Medical Alerts– As if we already didn’t have enough problems with the Chi-Com lab-engineered virus running amok, our friends in England have just reported the first two cases of the highly-contagious, West African lethal disease the monkeypox.  Similar to smallpox, this disease can run amok through a population causing problems that will reverberate through said society.  Folks, this is what happens when there are NO controls on the borders or ports of entry.  It is as if various world governments are social re-engineering to alleviate the world of much of its ‘excess population.’ 
  79. 2021 Saturday M: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– Stay tuned for the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3568 with a $54 million pot on the line and also for the Powerball Draw #854 with a $31 million pot up for grabs.  First, here are the results for the Super Lotto: 05, 10, 21, 22, 36, and Mega 10.  Out of 151,840 winning tickets, the highest winner was one person who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $50,728.  The winning ticket was sold at My Goods Market #5519 in Sacramento, CA 95864.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball: 08, 25, 34, 38, 41, and Power 10.  Out of 43,809 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $11,467 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Friends, we are going to present something to you today that MANY self-proclaimed fans of the Beach Boys have slammed: “M.I.U. Album,” their next studio release that came out on September 25, 1978.  When it came out, yes, it sold poorly, was not well received but friends, we love the f**k out of this album just as we do its successor, “Light Album (L.A. Album).  Reportedly, the album was released to fulfill contractual obligations and even stranger, it was recorded in Iowa at the Maharishi International University to keep the Boys away from their West Coast drug suppliers.  Once again, we have the Wilson Brothers and Mike Love and Al Jardine along with some members of the touring band.  This album remains one of our favorites and almost every tune is a delight.  It opens with “She’s Got Rhythm,” sung by Brian whose vocals are back in fine form followed by “Come Go With Me,” sung by Al followed by “Hey, Little Tomboy,” sung by Mike and Brian.  Some fans said this tune sounded like some sort of pedophile song but we will say, it most likely was written years later so being sung by older guys is just how it is.  Great song.  Next, we get “Kona Coast,” sung by Mike and Al, followed by “Peggy Sue,” the old favorite and then “Woncha Come Out Tonight,” perhaps the low point of the album.  Side Two opens Carl’s “Sweet Sunday Kind of Love,” followed by Mike Love’s “Belles of Paris.”  Then the crème de la crème follow with the amazing, “Pitter Patter,” sung by Al and Mike, followed by Dennis’ “My Diane.”  Then, the song we believe to be the best of the best, “Match Point of Our Love,” all Brian.  Finally, the album closes out with “Winds of Change,” another Al and Mike vocal.  Folks, this is a GREAT album, screw what critics and disgruntled fans say.  This remains among our favorite albums of their catalog so please, seek it out and enjoy.  We think you will be glad you did.

159. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JUNE 08, 2022

1954 Tuesday: In Hanoi, capital of French Indochina, a new general takes over after his predecessor was sacked on the 4th: General Paul Ely. Peace talks between the French, the communists, and the Russians are ongoing in Europe to bring some sort of end to the war there but the French are moving faster than the talks are. They are preparing to abandon much of the northern part of Vietnam while trying to hold on to portions of the south. The mood at home back in France is not very good- for the people of France, this smells a lot like the summer of 1940.

  65. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Wherever the laughing hyena- ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris- goes, she continues embarrassing herself and the administration.  When asked as to WHY she has yet to visit the southern border, she did what she does best and that is to burst out laughing like the jackal that she is.  Today, coming home from her humiliating trip to Guatemala to discuss the ongoing BORDER CALAMITY, she stopped in Mexico and was embarrassed there by anti-“Cho-Mo Joe” Biden-“Kooky Kamala” Harris protesters who showed up to tell her to go home and to reinforce the fact that President Donald J. Trump won.  As if this is not lethal to this fraudulent administration, news accounts say that ‘she fails to impress on her first taxpayer-funded trip abroad.’  Wow.  This is what happens when one helps steal an election and then tries to act as though they are legit.  People know the truth.  “Kooky Kamala” should tuck her cur tail between her legs and come home, disappear, and stay silent until the courts throw her and feeble Joe out of the White House.[xxii]  Speaking of this calamity along the border, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, said that ‘Joe Biden and his border czar are covering up the absolute disaster along the border by staying as far away from it as possible.’  Amen.
  66. 2021 Tuesday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, And ‘Refugees’ News– One America News once again updates the stats on what illegal immigration is costing the United States.  First, Cost this Day alone is $526,446,112.  Second, Total Cost this Year: $173,677,166,592.  Third: Number of Illegals who crossed the border this year: 1,780,052.  Fourth and final, Total Number of Illegal Aliens in the U.S. as you read this: 35,780,052 to which we say the ‘true number is closer to 60-80 million illegals.  Initiate new Operation Wetback II, round them up, load them onto trains, planes, buses, trucks, freighters, and even rickshaws and send them back to Mexico.  Let the Mexicans sort them out.  (Note- we learned yesterday on Newsmax that once the illegals make it across the southern border and arrive at safe houses, Americans come and pick them up and distribute them across three principal states- Texas, Tennessee, and Virginia.  And people claim the Replacement Theory is ‘conspiracy theory.’  Sure.  One thing we do know: any American citizen aiding the human trafficking must spend 20-30 years in a federal prison).
  67. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information–  Washington state has a new program running through July 12: “Joints for Jabs.”  If a person 21 or older gets the Chi-Vi vaccine, they can visit a state licensed marijuana dispensary and get themselves a free joint.  Question is, will it be bottom shelf stuff the likes of which they sell to low-income minorities or will it be top-of-the-line stuff imported from the Hindu Kush?  Thank you, Governor Jay Inslee, DS-WA, you big dumbass.  Still, people are shying away from getting the vaccinations now.   Next, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, signed a bill prohibiting COVID-19 Vaccine Passports and said that Texas is OPEN 100-percent.  Elsewhere, a New York pharmacist got fired for refusing to offer the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations.  Sad.   Finally, a new report says that ‘past COVID-19 infection is best defense against getting the disease again.’  In essence, this finding means that Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, was 100-percent correct when he said this while questioning the ‘Mighty Mite’ ‘Phony Tony’ Fauci.
  68. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Top airlines around the world are becoming increasingly uneasy and are asking global health authorities to begin easing the restrictions as otherwise, they will go broke sans customers.   Elsewhere, economic genius Peter Navarro says, ‘Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci[xxiii] orchestrated a coverup of the role the Chi-Coms played in loosing the Wuhan Flu on the world.’  Meanwhile, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory had a report ready to go back in May 2020 in which, it laid out the damning evidence that the Chi-Vi was lab-created and either loosed on the world through ineptitude or on purpose on an unsuspecting world.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is in cahoots with Little Mark Zuckerberg when it comes to covering up the Chi-Coms’ vast COVID-19 crimes.[xxiv]  Finally, UC Berkeley physics Professor Richard Muller told Greg Kelly on Newsmax that research shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Wuhan Virus Crisis was indeed developed within the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  
  69. 2021 Thursday J: Foreign News / Overseas News– Russia announced today in advance of the upcoming summit in Switzerland on June 16 between Vladimir Putin and enfeebled Joe Biden their official withdrawal from the Open Skies Treaty.  Ba-boom!  Another bitch-slap to the face of the drooler-in-chief.  Speaking of Russia, they are commissioning a new class of submarines, the Yasen-M-class nuclear-powered, guided missile submarine.  Next, communist-lover Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being pressured by both Canadian businesses and the United States to reopen the border between the U.S. and Canada.  In other hilarious news, French President Emanuel Macron found himself slapped across the face as he was out going on a walkabout and when he approached a rope line, a gentleman on the other side slapped him across his petulant puss.  Yikes.   Not sure what may have happened to the slapper.  In other foreign and overseas news, we learn today that the Chi-Coms are doing everything imaginable and then some to repress Uighur birth rates.  (Note- and you wonder why we typically say that the Chi-Coms and Nazi Germany have so much in common).[xxv] (Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the U.S. Senate is set to pass a sweeping tech bill with which to combat the communist threat emanating from Beijing).
  70. 2021 Tuesday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– ‘Joe Biden’ is set to launch a ‘taskforce’ on America’s supply chain problems.  (Note- do what President Donald J. Trump advocated- bring EVERYTHING home from communist China.  Period).  Next, the Dems are having problems pushing the ‘Joe Biden agenda’ without the support of some of their own senators in the U.S. Senate.  Add to that the fact of liberal infighting, confusion, and plain stupidity and it’s no wonder his ‘agenda’ is going in a circular motion down the crapper and off to the water purification farm.  In fact, Senate ‘Majority Leader’ “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says infrastructure talks between the White House and the GOP have ‘hit a brick wall.’  His counterpart, Senate ‘Minority Leader’ ‘Cocaine Mitch’ McConnell, R-KY, says that ‘era of bipartisanship is over.’  Amen.
  71. 2021 Tuesday L: Big Tech News– Poll- 86-percent of Americans believe the United States is vulnerable to damaging cyberattacks.  The federal government, however, claims to have recovered around 63 Bitcoin from the account the hackers of the Colonial oil pipeline used to amass their ransom.  Good.  Now, we need to find and execute them.  Even as the feds have a success, a new cyberattack hits a provider of tech services to Capitol Hill demanding ransom.  This seems to be a daily, ongoing thing.  Someone nudge ‘drooling Joe’ and see if he’s awake.  Someone must do something.
  72. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News I– the U.S. Senate passes a bill with which to provide payments to victims of the ‘Havana Syndrome,’ the microwave attacks on U.S. diplomats and embassy personnel in various stations around the world.   About time.  Next, because U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has a penis and not a vagina between his legs, the LEFT is demanding he be replaced with former U.S. Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.  Look, we think Garland’s a loser; however, replacing one loser with another loser makes no sense at all NO matter the genitalia.  In other news, Buckhead, a neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia, is seeking to secede from the crime-infested, illegal alien-overrun city and become their own city.  We hope they ‘secede.’  (LOL).  Meanwhile, a new U.S. Senate report on January 6, 2021, puts the onus on what happened on that day- one the Dems compare to the War of 1812, Pearl Harbor, and September 11, 2001- onto the Capitol Hill cops who did nothing even with intel to stop the FALSE FLAG OPERATION[xxvi] that overran the Capitol Building.
  73. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News II– Back from the graveyard, hardcore Democrat, cash bundler for the Clintons, and former Governor Terry McAuliffe, bested his opponents in the Virginia Democratic Party’s gubernatorial primary race.   Democrats believe the Virginia state races in November 2021 will demonstrate how well the Democrats are doing which is why in our view, Virginia is among the BIG THREE states where traffickers are bringing vast numbers of illegal aliens.   They want to flood the polls with a tidal wave of new voters to put a man labeled the “punk” by famed radio icon, Rush Limbaugh.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday O: Moron News– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez- the one some public relations firm tied to former Nazi and ‘born again communist’ George Soros dubbed ‘AOC’- was crying on some radio or TV show about having to get counseling for her post-traumatic stress disorder she claims to have suffered at the aforementioned Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Wah, wah, wah, girl, don’t you ever shut up?  Speaking of another moron, octogenarian entertainer Cher can’t distinguish between blonde female senators.  She was bitching and moaning about Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, not standing with her party and confused her with a vacuous blonde from New York Kirsten Gillibrand.  Cher said the voters of New York must vote that skank out of office.  She didn’t mean you, Senator Gillibrand.  Perhaps someone can enlighten Cher?[xxvii]   Finally, actress Ellie Kemper of ‘The Office’ fame is yet another to bite the dust as the WOKE mob continues devouring its own.  Apparently, Ms. Kemper went to a Cotillion dance and celebration back in flipping 1999 and because she wore a white dress and white gloves to her above her elbow as females participating in these events typically do, she became a MAJOR TARGET and was forced to apologize profusely and to then leave whatever show of which she was a cast member.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Tuesday P: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1666 with a pot of $56 million.  Here are the numbers: 09, 22, 39, 41, 54, and Mega 19.  Out of 53,082 winning numbers in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $41,111.     
  76. 2022 Wednesday: Stick around and discover whatever is going on today…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

One thing about the Beach Boys is that while their vocal harmonies soared, harmony among the band members was always affray which was sad.  Alan Jardine and Mike Love sought control, but Brian Wilson had the ‘touch.’  Carl contributed great tunes whereas Dennis was slowly becoming a problem for the band.  Still, the band had not released a new studio album since “Holland” several years back.  Demand was high and thus it was time to release a brand-new record and to make it appear as though Brian was back at the helm.  Thus, we get “15 Big Ones,” released on July 05, 1976.  The album is a mix of classic oldies and some Beach Boys compositions that might have appeared on B-Sides and the like. The album features the same lineup as the preceding one: Brian Wilson (bass, piano, organ, vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Carl Wilson (vocals and guitars), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Alan Jardine (guitars, bass, and vocals), Bruce Johnston (backing vocals), and others including members of the touring ensemble.  Say what you will about the album but at the time, it was a godsend since fans sought any music from the group and it would mark the start of the ‘third period of productivity.’  We hope you will seek this one out as it has its moments and some tunes such as Alan Jardine’s “Susie Cincinnati” are a joy to behold.  Seek it out and make it a part of your daily listening rotation.  Enjoy.

[i] 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.”

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Steve Miller Band, we screwed up by not promoting the music of Boz Scaggs at the same time.  We look forward to doing it soon.

[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] 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.

[v] 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.

[vi] We celebrated the music of the amazing Little Feat beginning on Tuesday, 11-June-2013 through Monday, 15-July-2013.  One of the great unsung bands of all time, we hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your music collection.

[vii] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[viii] James Comey is a worthless POS and one of the main coup plotters against President Donald J. Trump.  We hope he will soon be breaking rocks at Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary for his role in the attempted coup.

[ix] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  Seeing as how Fleetwood Mac was among the earliest bands we ever promoted, we will have to pick them back up and present not only the music of the band that has come out since then but also the individual member’s solo projects.

[x] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xxi] So says Investopedia: How Much U.S. Debt Does China Own? (investopedia.com)

[xxii] Rep. Brad Wenstrup, R-OH 2nd congressional district, says it’s ‘absolutely unbelievable that neither Joe Biden nor his flunky have visited the southern border. 

[xxiii] A new Rasmussen poll says that ONLY 40-percent of Americans believe the ‘Mighty Mite’ told the truth at any point.

[xxiv] Speaking of the political hack doctor, the “Fire Fauci Act” continues to gain momentum.  It is funny that yesterday during a trip the midget doctor took with Dr. Jill Biden, the ersatz ‘first lady,’ people along the way hooted and yelled at them, demanding he resign office NOW.

[xxv] Like the Nazis, the Chi-Coms allow ‘private ownership of businesses and wealth’ as long as the business owners and wealthy play ball with the regime.  Like the Nazis, the Chi-Coms have a strong territorial aggression agenda by which they will take over other nations through threat or by cash.  Like the Nazis, they seek to exterminate the Untermensch (in their eyes) of racial, ethnic, and religious minorities, and maintain a vast system of concentration and slave labor camps and do something the Nazis never even thought of doing: organ harvesting for sale to the highest bidder.  Yes, the People’s Republic of China is Nazi Germany but with an Asian face.

[xxvi] The False Flag Operation was one organized by Antifa and carried out with their thugs and Black Lives Matter communists insinuated into the ranks of Trump supporters to make it appear as though it was Trump supporters run amok.  The Dems are milking these teats for all their worth.  Their time will come.

[xxvii] Because this woman is a ditz, we will NEVER promote her music; we will, however, one day do the music of Sonny and Cher.

157. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JUNE 06, 2022

2020 Saturday: The Chinese Bat Flu continues causing problems around the world but such is communism: they either released it on purpose or are so inept that no other country around the world should trust them to do anything above fifth-grade level science. Here are the global stats for today: 6,855,858 confirmed cases, 398,321 confirmed deaths, and 3,071,403 confirmed recoveries the last number of which, compared to deaths, is exceptionally good.

  55. 2020 Saturday: The Chinese Bat Flu continues causing problems around the world but such is communism: they either released it on purpose or are so inept that no other country around the world should trust them to do anything above fifth-grade level science.  Here are the global stats for today: 6,855,858 confirmed cases, 398,321 confirmed deaths, and 3,071,403 confirmed recoveries the last number of which, compared to deaths, is exceptionally good.

David Ige- unlike California’s Gov. Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Washington’s Gov. Jay Inslee reports FULL figures.  Here we go: 664 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 614 confirmed recoveries.   Finally, in the Evergreen (Ever Communist) State, here are the stats: 23,442 confirmed cases, 1,153 confirmed deaths, BUT NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.
  57. 2020 Saturday B: For a laugh, let’s look at the numbers communist China recently posted: 83,036 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 78,332 confirmed recoveries.  However, our sources in Hong Kong tell us the following numbers: at least 2,890,000 confirmed cases, 1,460,000 confirmed deaths, and about 1,430,000 confirmed recoveries.  Not sure whether our sources are 100-percent dependable but if so, it demonstrates once again that communists always lie.

Currently, Joe is shy 165,193 deaths

  63. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.218 per gallon, $2.854 in Florida, $3.957 in Hawaii, and $3.600 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Idaho: $3.275.  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- Botswana: $3.453 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,375,2445709,029 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 which is not good.  NOTE- communist China owns approximately $1.1 trillion.  However, they are not the largest holder of U.S. debt.  The top holder is Japan who owns $1.266 trillion of American debt.  The Chi-Coms are number two on the list.  The third nation owning much of our debt is Brazil- they own $300 billion.  Yesterday, we said that Brazil was number three, apparently, the United Kingdom holds more than they do with $368 billion.[xviii]
  64. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe–  We do our best to keep track of this so here is today’s assessment: ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the catastrophe, no, the calamity occurring on our southern border and the ‘laughing hyena,’ “Kooky,” has yet to make an appearance there in 76 days.  (Note- we say that were she in the professional foodservice business and didn’t show up on the first day, we would have terminated her worthless ass.  Just saying).  One America News updated their figures on the ongoing border disaster.  Here we go: (1) Cost to U.S. taxpayers on this day: $568,861,120.  Next, (2) Cost of caring for this blitzkrieg of illegals at this point as 2021: $171,527,815,168.  Imagine if this money went into rebuilding our economy, the one the Chi-Coms and the Democrats conspired to TRASH?  Wow.  Next, (3) the numbers of wet***ks who have crossed so far this year: 1,758,022.  Finally, (4) here are the number of illegals in the country as said by One America News: 35,758,024.  (Note- we have said the dwindling number as far back as 2009 was 35 million with a high of 50 million or more; well, we believe the sparse number is now around 50 million with a high of 80-85 million.  These people are sucking away at our resources.  We must deport all of them NOW.  Anyone who disagrees can go f**k themselves. 
  65. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The citizens of Budapest, Hungary, and across that fabled nation are taking to the streets in protest of the Chi-Coms’ planned building of a Chi-Com university with which they can continue spreading their cancerous ideology.  We stand with the citizens of Hungary and every other nation that has been subjected to the harsh tyranny of communism in their fight to remain free.  NO CHI-COMS.  Not now.  Not ever.  Boot them and their Belt and Roads crap project out of every nation (and you wonder why our numbers are currently in the crapper once again.  Oh, well…)  In other news, a nebulous tie between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Hunter Biden continues to emerge as we now know that lobbyists in their employ reached out to Ukrainian oligarchs so they could obtain meetings with Mrs. Clinton for a certain price, of course. 
  66. 2021 Sunday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information–  Things continue getting worse for Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci by the day.  We now know that Fauci’s organization- the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, aka NIAID- reportedly gave the Wuhan Institute of Virology $826,000 to study the Horseshoe Bat viruses and to accomplish Gain of Function tasks.  Thus, we have the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is calling on the compromised Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci to resign.  NOW.  In other interesting news, Judge Jeanine Pirro on her Fox News Channel program yesterday shared a video in which, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci back in early 2017 PREDICTED that the (Trump) administration was going to find itself confronted with a medical challenge the likes of which we hadn’t seen.  Amazing how the minute doctor was able to prophesize the coming of the global pandemic, almost as though he had advance notice.  Wow.  The deeper we dig the worse filth turns up.   Fauci was in the ‘anti-Trump camp’ from the start.  This story will one day shock the entire world.
  67. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– Yesterday, during the GOP convention in the Peach State, the GOP censured Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, RINO, while the convention was ongoing.  Wow.  (Note- former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA 9th congressional district, should seek this job in 2022).   Next, crumbling Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-C, says that he is ‘not going to relinquish his pandemic emergency powers.’  This guy most likely will be gone come November; he still wants to stick it to the citizens of his state including fellow Democrats.  Speaking of asinine state chief executives, Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer, DS-MI, pitches a new plan with which to provide unemployment benefits to part-time workers without jobs.  Wow. Love throwing around taxpayer money even though you won’t reopen your state.  What is wrong with this picture?   Finally, the U.S. Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Karen Gibson says she is more ‘fearful of cyberattack than she is of another January 06, 2021.’  Amen.
  68. 2021 Sunday J: New Category!  Moron News– New York’s shame, Rep. Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district (Joe Crowley, when are you going to take back your old seat?) said something truly stupid, truly, truly stupid- ‘In order to stop violent crime, the answer is to build fewer prisons and jails.’ Folks, this dimwitted horse’s ass never fails to disappoint, she will show her stupidity day after day after day and without being prodded to do so.  In reward, we will no longer call her by her professional name of ‘Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ but will go with her birth name of ‘Sandy “The Fly” Cortez.’
  69. 2022 Monday: How many cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu will see one year from last year?  The numbers last year were less than this year’s tally so far.  However, it’s an election year so this year, the numbers are going to be far higher…it’s the only way the Dems can win…

  57. 2017 Wednesday: Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appoints former FBI Director Robert S.

Ige.  Finally, here is Washington state’s stats: 18,433 confirmed cases, 1,001 confirmed deaths, but, like California, 0 number of confirmed recoveries. 
  61. 2020 Sunday A: Now, interesting note here: people are criticizing Russia for not sharing their REAL stats, they say the number of deaths are too low.  Well, Russia said today they are only listing those citizens actually killed by the coronavirus and not those who might have died with the virus but from other things.  Would that not be great if the CDC would do the same thing, and would it not be great if the CDC forced every state to report the actual statistics?  Here’s Russia’s stats: 281,752 confirmed cases, 2,631 confirmed deaths, and 67,373 confirmed recoveries.  IF anyone is lying about their numbers, it’s the communist Chinese, the nation that gave this crap to the entire world.  Here are their numbers: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  People’s Republic of China: NOTHING BUT LIARS.
  62. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 164,253,597 confirmed cases, +523,609, 3,403,704  confirmed deaths, +10,308 and 144,165,892 confirmed recoveries, +84,530.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,744,062 confirmed cases, UP 21,893 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,504 confirmed deaths, UP 339,[vii] and 27,193,861 confirmed recoveries, UP 57,841.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]   
  63. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since JOE BIDEN became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 284,283 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 175,326 deaths.     
  64. 2021 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,769,895 confirmed cases, 62,698 confirmed deaths, and 2,012,591 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,293,980 confirmed cases, 36,139 confirmed deaths, and 1,891,240 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,834 confirmed cases, 492 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 424,930 confirmed cases, 5,684 confirmed deaths, and 205,072 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wuhan repatriated: they have 3 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 3 confirmed recoveries.[ix]   In other COVID-19 news, the Lone Star State reports NO new Chi-Vi deaths two months after Joe Biden called the state leadership ‘Neanderthals’ because they ended the mask mandates.  My, my, my.  Meanwhile, the director of the Centers of Disease Control was busy defending the mask mandate.  (Note- millions of Americans no longer believe masks work and that they have become a more a political statement than they were ever about health.  After all, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci said in the beginning of the Chi-Vi crisis that ‘masks were ineffective,’ then they were, then perhaps two were required, then maybe even goggles (that one vanished quickly), and finally 3, 4, or more masks were necessary.  BULLS**T.  Hey- why NO earmuffs, Dr. Fauci?).
  65. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,159 confirmed cases, 6,389 confirmed deaths, and 832,093 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Albania, an ancient nation: 132,032 cases of the virus, 2,435 confirmed deaths and 125,419 confirmed recoveries.[x]     
  66. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,327.79, DOWN 54.34 points (-0.16%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,379.05, DOWN 50.93 points (-0.38%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,163.29, DOWN 10.56 points (-0.25%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.30 per barrel, +0.03 (+0.03%).  The price of GOLD is $1,869.70 per troy oz., +2.10 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $28.36 per troy ounce, +0.09 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,245.70 per troy oz, +1.20 (+0.10%) while the price of COPPER is $4.73 per pound, +0.02 (+0.38%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,906.73 per troy oz, +5.51 (+0.19%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (+0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000023.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.77.     In Turkmenistan Manat, one greenback equals 3.49 and in Ugandan Schilling, a buck equals 3,523.94 and in Ukrainian Hryvnia, one dollar equals 27.51 of theirs.[xiv]   In other business news, the availability of fresh oranges and coffee may soon be in question or worse, prices will rise uncontrollably because Brazil is fighting a water shortage.  (Note- there was a time when we made or grew many of the things our country required to improve life for the American people whereas at some point a few decades back, we outsourced everything to other nations.  Globalism does not work nor is it wanted).  
  67. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.132 per gallon, $2.893 in Florida, $3.854 in Hawaii, and $3.539 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Virginia: $2.936.  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- Saudi Arabia: $2.251 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,298,240,723,054 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.
  68. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– First, today is Day 55 for ‘Border Czar Kamala Harris NOT visiting the southern border.  Second, the Acting Director of ICE Tony Pham admits that once Immigration and Customs Enforcement dumps illegal aliens in the interior of the country, they no longer monitor them.  Next, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, blasted the Joe Biden regime on failing to fulfill its duty to the American people and putting an end to the invasion along the southern border.  Senator Tommy Tuberville, R-AL, says that U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas ‘is not taking the border crisis seriously.’  Meanwhile, One America News released updates stats on the numbers: the cost of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens on the American taxpayers is- $489,79,264.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegals that have flowed into the country since January 20, 2021- 1,532,565 illegals.  The total cost of caring for these illegal aliens this year now sits at $149,530,181,632.  Finally, the current number of illegal aliens lurking within the U.S. is around 35,532,564 which means, we are being overwhelmed. 
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says that ‘Joe Biden could erase $1.7 trillion in student loan debt with the stroke of a pen.’  (Note- of course but that does NOT mean that debt simply vanishes.  Someone is left holding the bag).  Next, Joe Biden approves the sale of $735 million in military aid to Israel as they fight to survive.  In other Joe Biden news, news reports suggests that pressure is increasing on both him and the Federal Reserve to do something about rising inflation.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden seeks to codify Roe even though Mississippi and other states are passing common sense laws regarding the murdering of the unborn.  (Note- funny how when it comes to slaying the unborn within their mother’s womb, it’s ‘my body my choice’ whereas when it comes to allowing the American people to remove their masks, it’s NOT my body, my choice.  HIV-AIDS patients should be having to show health cards, too, instead of, uh, like in San Francisco, one does not have to inform their partner of their HIV-AIDS status).
  70. 2021 Monday H: Joe Biden News–  Last year, Joe Biden reportedly made $607,336 in earnings and paid a federal income tax rate of 25.9-percent.  In other Joe Biden news, that nut-job, Rep. Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is taking orders from Benjamin Netanyahu’ and urges the United States to condemn Israel.  STFU jihadist.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Political News I–  Journalist Jeff Greenfield says that the ‘GOP is united and that it’s rallying around President Donald J. Trump.’  Next, (and this is strange), the Department of Homeland Security is trembling in its jackboots that for some unspecified reason, domestic terrorists might be planning on launching attacks during the rollback of mask mandates and the lessening of the Wuhan Flu.  (Note- not clear as to why they believe something as stupid as this; then again, they could have some operatives ready to launch new FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS.  We guess we shall see).  In other news, President Donald J. Trump is scheduled to speak at the GOP Convention in North Carolina on June 05, 2021.  Finally, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, says that the only one benefitted by the ‘mask mandates’ is Joe Biden.
  72. 2021 Monday J: Social Media News And Big Tech News– The CEO of Cameo says that President Donald J. Trump can join their platform.   Next, Vimeo dumps My Pillow guy, Mike Lindell.  Meanwhile, Judge Mark L. Wolf says the court may take Twitter to task over allegations that the social media site prohibits or bans conservative speech while promoting far-left, loony tunes speech.  Good.  Bust them up.  Elsewhere, Parler is back in the App store and also has a new CEO.  In other BIG TECH news, the Wall Street Journal reports that Bill Gates may have been removed as head of Microsoft over a lengthy affair with an underling, i.e., an employee.  Add to his woes the fact that ties reportedly exist between him and murdered pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein.
  73. 2022 Tuesday: Yes, we know, we are running behind but business is back!
