213. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 01, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts? Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go. Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.

  67. 2015 Saturday: After Puerto Rican Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla warned creditors the previous June that if its debt did not undergo restructuring to keep the commonwealth afloat, Puerto Rico fails to make a $58 billion payment on bonds issued by the Public Finance Corporation.  In other news, Palestinian riffraff have been causing trouble for the Israelis who after the scumbags murder an innocent wee babe in his crib by setting him on fire leads Israeli Defense Forces to take the fight to the human garbage.  At least two Palestinian 17-year-olds are killed in the resulting fray.

  69. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms the Honorable Christopher A. Wray the next head of the FBI, thus ending the era of the corrupt James Comey.  Elsewhere, in Herat, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again when a bomb blast at the Jawadia Shia Mosque kills at least 30 and injures and maims countless others.  Got to love the religion!  Next, famed keyboardist with the rock band, Steppenwolf- Goldy McJohn- died in Seattle, Washington, on this date from a heart attack; he was 72 years old.

Trump announces via a tweet that starting September 1, 2019, the U.S. is going to slap a 10-percent tariff on $300 billion of Chi-Com exports.  Good.  The SOBs have been raping the United States for a long, long time.  Time to make those bloodsuckers pay.
  72. 2020 Saturday: Florida is bracing today for incoming Hurricane Isaias.  Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans are working hard to craft a new Chinese Virus relief package.  The Democrats want to continue giving unemployed Americans $600 atop their state unemployment checks while the GOP wants to slash the additional funding to $200 atop the weekly state unemployment checks.  The GOP wants workers to return to work while the Democrats seek to keep them at home, dependent upon federal government until well after the November elections.  Democrats seek to topple the U.S. economy as only then can uber-leftists force Marxism down the throats of the American people.  Finally, BOTH Democrats and Republicans slam President Donald J. Trump for seeking to remove U.S. troops from Germany and redeploy them farther east to countries such as Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, as well as bring some of them home.  Very few NATO member countries fail to pay their annual 2-percent dues.   As for the most prosperous nation in Western Europe and a linchpin of the alliance: Germany wants U.S. troops to protect them from Russia, yet Angela Merkel makes energy deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas pipelines coming directly into her country.  This is bulls**t! 
  73. 2020 Saturday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 17,594,541 confirmed cases, UP 273,147, 679,439 confirmed deaths, UP 5,617, and 10,333,166 confirmed recoveries, UP 178,140.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,686,214 confirmed cases, UP 61,034 new cases, 156,370 confirmed deaths, UP 1,124, and 2,293,228 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,254.

Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,243 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 112,936 while the number of deaths is 13,588.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Tom Wolf is little more than a hardcore political hack.

Currently, Joe is shy 93,140 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[viii]

[ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.816.  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- Jamaica: $4.711 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,591,181,135,271 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  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.
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 131 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the horrendous humanitarian disaster along the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.  It’s also her 37th day since her one and only visit to the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.   When we say ‘nothing,’ we mean, “NOTHING.”  It is time she laid down her duties- not that she ever picked them up- and returned home to spend more time with her family.  Adios.  Customs and Border Protection officials report that in the month of June, the authorities caught 190,000 illegals which means many, many more were able to have beaten the dragnet.   Speaking of CBP, former acting commissioner of the organization- Mark Morgan- calls out the hypocrisy of both Joe Biden and the Democrats over their stoppage of the border wall construction- ‘it would be cheaper to complete the wall rather than care for all of these frigging illegal aliens.’
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the horrendous ongoing mess along the southern border, here are the numbers reported by One America News for this disgusting disaster we have no choice but to watch.  It affects all of us, it harms all of us, and it will eat away at the guts of the country until everything implodes.  First, here is the COST THIS DAY of caring for all the frigging illegal aliens: $583,016,384.   Second, here is the COST THIS YEAR: $232,911,831,040.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens estimated to have crossed the border this year: 2,387,159.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals believed to be within the United States: 36,387,160.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- if you have read our blog site for any length of time, then you know we estimated as far back as 2009 when we first began being the voice of the culinary worker and professional chef that back then, we believed the number to be between 35-to-50 million whereas now, we suspect the honest-to-God number is closer to 75-100 million which means we have the seeds of our own demise residing within our country.  DEPORT THEM NOW no matter the difficulty or the cost.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– While sending Cubans back to their communist hellhole, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says that at least 100,000 Haitians will be provided work permits so they can work (and vote) in the U.S. without fear.  Elsewhere, seizures of fentanyl along the southern border are up by as much as 4,000-percent.  CBP officials report the drug comes from labs in Mexico supplied by the Chi-Coms and that it is used in cocaine, heroin, and in pill presses to create fake oxycontin and other pharmaceutical prescribed drugs being used by Americans.  Deaths are going way up once again now that President Donald J. Trump is not in the White House.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Former Iranian thug President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that while HE was president, the government lied for EIGHT years about its countless human rights abuses and violations.  Mahmoud, everyone knows that.  Iranian leaders are ALL liars.  Elsewhere, the government of Myanmar has extended its ‘state of emergency’ with the leader of the coup proclaimed the prime minister.  Meanwhile, the war in Afghanistan continues to rage what with the cities of Herat, Lashkar Gah, and Kandahar being attacked and overwhelmed in some places.  In the western portion of the country, the Taliban has attacked a United Nations compound.
  85. 2021 Sunday J:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As drooling Joe Biden continues trying to discern ways by which he can coerce the American people into taking the Kung Flu vaccines, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, says ‘nope’ to offering $100 incentives to entice her citizens into getting the shots.  (Note- we suspect they could jack it up to $1,000 per jab and people would still say, “HELL, NO, we are not getting this duck dreck”).  Meanwhile, CNN ‘health expert’ John Berman puts the blame for the ongoing ‘pandemic’ onto the shoulders of the unvaccinated while totally ignoring the wide-open borders and the hundreds of thousands of infected illegals pouring across into the United States.  Good try, Mr. Berman, but it’s all bullshit.  This dimwit also says that Joe Biden declared victory ‘way too early.’ 
  86. 2021 Sunday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Two countries- Thailand and Indonesia- are pushing away from using Chi-Com vaccines, finding fault with how they are manufactured and the myriad side effects they cause the recipients.  (Note- NO one should use any vaccine from either the Chi-Coms or the Russians.  Both are f**ked up countries).   Elsewhere, a new poll says that only 45-percent of the American people are concerned about getting the Chi-Vi while 13-percent- hardcore liberals- wet their beds at night in terror of contracting it.   What’s more, Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths and hospitalizations are at record lows.  Yes, the Delta variant of the Chi-Com flu is much more contagious- like the common cold- but much less lethal.  Also let’s not forget that about one week ago today, the Dems were beginning to drive up the fears of the Lambda variant but then abruptly yanked that one back for use at a later date.  Delta comes from India while Lambda comes from Peru. 
  87. 2021 Sunday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Fox News host Judge Janine Pirro says that the government is setting up for future COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions- especially going into 2022 so the Dems and their RINO sycophants can replicate the elections theft they perfected in conjunction with the Chi-Coms in 2020.  Judge Pirro points out that the LEFT is the science deniers.  She also asked what the ‘endgame’ in this horrible scheme is? In other Chi-Vi news, the Centers for Disease Control is paying the National Football League’s Alumni Association $3.5 million to get retired players to coerce current players into taking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines even though they have no desire to do it.  Next, in two San Francisco, California, hospitals, 233 breakthrough cases among fully vaccinated staff have occurred with at least TWO of them hospitalized.  Finally, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, R, is blasting health officials for exaggerating COVID-19’s danger via their frightening hyperbole.
  88. 2021 Sunday M: Political News I– The ‘mask mandate’ imposed by nonagenarian U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is not only unpopular with most Republicans, but  also becoming increasingly unpopular with many Democrats as well- so says the polls.  Speaking of mask mandates, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser like many other Democrats- including “Mumbles” Pelosi and her corpulent sidekick, Rep. Jerrold “Tub-of-Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th CD, all have been captured wandering around sans masks.  Next, Democrats are fretting over the fact that millions of Americans could soon be homeless once the moratorium on evictions vanishes but here’s the deal: most of the $45 billion earmarked for helping renters and mortgage holders keep current remains unused which means it’s resting peacefully in the pockets of Democrat and RINO politicians.   
  89. 2021 Sunday N: Political News II– We have been long hoping for this but it sounds like former Alaska GOP Governor Sarah Palin could return to politics and take a go at highly unpopular current Senator Lisa Murkowski in 2022.  We hope to God she runs and beats this Republican-in-name-only.  She would be an amazing addition to the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, says that ‘IF he gets the gavel in November 2022, he will launch investigations into drooling Joe Biden and extremely corrupt House Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi.   Speaking of moronic Democrats, the police chief of Charleston, South Carolina, Luther Reynolds, says that the Democrats’ Defund the Police scheme is blowing up in their faces.
  90. 2021 Sunday O: Business News– Amazon has been slammed with a $886 million fine over a recent data law breach.  Meanwhile, British-based bank Monzo Bank Ltd finds itself embroiled in a money-laundering mess.
  91. 2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts?  Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go.  Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.  I suspect that once liberal lunatics such as Joe f**king Biden seize power as his good buddy, Justin Trudeau has already done and others follow, the New World Order will be imposed on the global population with the Chi-Coms at the top.  This is evil, coordinated, and propaganda/fake news supported, and I fear if they find a way to force everyone to remain at home another election cycle, it will become a fait accompli.  Although Ukraine is being destroyed, it will be rebuilt once the world is starved into submission, the people driven into poverty, and freeze in the winters and broil in the summers, it will be too late.  Tell me what you think- Chef Hector.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0909 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Verbenas and Saguaros.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Beach Boys’ genius, Brian Wilson, is his first seasonal release: “What I Really Want for Christmas,” an album that came out on October 18, 2005.  The Beach Boys had a glorious Christmas album so it would make sense that Brian would do something similar and thus, here it is.  Besides doing some of his classic Beach Boys tunes such as “Little St. Nick” and “The Man with All the Toys,” he delivers some amazing covers of other, classic Yuletide tunes.  As always, he has a superb cast of supporting musicians with which to deliver a delightful holiday package.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure around the holidays.  You will be extremely glad you did- we guarantee it.

  22. 1941 Tuesday: Architects presented the plans for the Pentagon to the House Subcommittee of Appropriations.  On the Eastern Front, Axis forces continue steamrolling across the Soviet Union.  The problems the Axis troops are facing is that as they head east, Russia opens up like a great funnel which dilutes the strength of the Axis forces.  That’s bad enough but stories of the atrocities the Nazis are committing behind the lines against civilians- notably communist party members and Jews- is stiffening the backbones of the Red Army soldiers.  Even without help in sight, they trade their lives to buy time for their comrades farther east to prepare defenses.   Still, Operation Barbarossa rolls forward.

Patton captured Palermo, Sicily, during World War II.  At least 50,000 Italian troops- about the size of a division- are trapped in the western portion of the island and without relief will have to lay down their arms and become prisoners of war.  Not long ago, Il Duce Benito Mussolini guaranteed his ally, Adolf Hitler, that the Fascists would continue the fight.
  25. 1944 Saturday: The Soviet military authorities set up the Polish National Liberation Committee. In essence, they are telling the Free Polish government broadcasting orders to the Polish people from London, ‘you aren’t in charge here.’  Soviet forces capture the strategic city of Chelmno and redouble their efforts at encircling Lublin, Poland.  Meanwhile, in London, Rick Davies, future keyboardist, and vocalist with the rock group, Supertramp[i], is born in Swindon, England.
  26. 1945 Sunday: As Allied bombers continue blasting Japan, the Japanese government still is not ready to throw in the towel.  Tokyo still thinks it can negotiate a peace and tells the Allies; we are ‘open to peace feelers but not to outright surrender.’  The Imperial Japanese are determined to defend their home islands to the bitter end no matter the cost.
  27. 1945 Sunday A: The 52nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau Jr. left office on this date.  A Democrat, Secretary Morgenthau served under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt from January 01, 1934, until today.

Bush for allowing the jihadist scum to attack the United States so the President could launch a war with Iraq.  This is a bunch of felonious bull crap as EVERYONE—we repeat—EVERYONE believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

  61. 2018 Sunday: In response to a hateful speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet in which, he warns the s-hole nation of “CONSEQUENCES.”  The Iranians would be wise to listen to the 45th president as he is not- we repeat NOT- the 44th president who was Pro-Iranian to the bone.   Meanwhile, in anti-gun Toronto, Canada, a shooter kills 2 and wounds 13 before being shot dead by law enforcement.
  62. 2019 Monday: The latest Marvel Comics superhero film, “Avengers: Endgame,” surpasses “Avatar” as the world’s highest-grossing film pulling in $2.9 billion.  People love the comic book movies it says a lot about the public paying big bucks to watch this schlock.   Meanwhile, Pakistani President Imran Khan meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House on a state visit.   Elsewhere, in northwestern Syria at Maarat al-Numan, Russian warplanes in support of Syrian government forces kill at least 31 civilians.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump says that the ‘U.S. could win the war in Afghanistan in one week.’  “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.  If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.”  (Mr. President, this is why God gave the United States the neutron bomb- use them!).
  63. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. State Department orders the closure- by this Friday- of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China’s consulate in Houston, Texas.  The Chinese within the facility immediately start a bonfire with which to eliminate all sensitive documents but everyone knows the Houston consulate (and most of the others) are hotbeds for hostile spying on everything in the area: U.S. air force and other military bases, the U.S. space program, and bio research, especially into the Chinese-manufactured Bat Flu pandemic sweeping the planet.  Meanwhile reports inform the world that everyday PRC warplanes are buzzing Taiwan, a free nation the communists are determined to reclaim.  STAND STRONG TAIWAN!  We advocate for a return of the Two-China policy by which, Taiwan becomes a free and independent nation as they were before the United Nations threw them under the bus in favor of the PRC- Chi-Com money bought them Taiwan’s seat in the U.N. and on the U.N. Security Council.      
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: President Donald J. Trump- with Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, and numerous others- announces to the nation Operation Legend, a partnership between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to reclaim the streets from violent left-wing (and we believe communist China-funded) mobs that are murdering innocent civilians and harming countless others in numerous cities around the country.   These are standard, anti-crime-fighting activities the federal government has been carrying out for decades and all left-wing mayors and governors have been put on notice.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 307,730 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 96,348 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xv]        
  73. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.320 per gallon, $2.977 in Florida, $4.091 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Connecticut: $3.154.  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- Communist China: $4.477 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,553,133,360,269 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  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 Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 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 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 121 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the CALAMITY occurring on the U.S.-Mexico border and to have done NOTHING about the crisis.  It’s also her 27th day since she has been to the border on her one and only trip with no mention as to when she might return to conduct a serious visit.  We await word of that momentous day if it should come because we would love to accompany “Willie Brown’s mattress.” 
  75. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the latest figures on the southern border mess as they always do.  First, here is the cost this day of carrying for multitudes of illegal aliens in U.S. custody: $539,396,352.  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $221,909,319,680.  Moving on, here is the estimated number for illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 2,274,392.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals in the U.S. as we speak: 36,274,392.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the inception of this blog back in 2009 that the numbers back then were around 35-50 million illegals whereas now, we believe a much more honest number is between 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Folks, we need to round them up, imprison them, and then deport them in a nonstop reverse caravan of outgoing flights, on freighters, on freight trains, via buses, and even on foot.  The country cannot handle these people, nor do we want them running amok in our country.  DEFEND THE COUNTRY NOW. [xix]
  76. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said that the U.S., South Korea, and Japan will counter any malevolent activity the North Koreans might commit.  While this is awesome, there is no pushback against the Chi-Coms.  The Chi-Coms reject a plan by the World Health Organization to determine the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Democrats remain under fire from human rights groups because they won’t call out their communist overlords for human rights violations.
  77. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The ‘Mark of the Beast’ attitude continues what with a New Jersey hospital firing SIX employees who said ‘NO’ to getting one of the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Whatever happened to ‘my body, my choice?’  Obviously, it doesn’t count here.  Meanwhile, the White House is reviewing whether it’s going to impose mask mandates on the American people whether they want them or not.   Elsewhere, One America News reported today that the VAERS website says that COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S. jumped from 11.1 thousand to 12.3 thousand deaths since the start of the year.  This number is higher than the combined deaths for all other vaccines in the country since the federal government began counting such incidents.  And they wonder WHY millions of Americans are reluctant to get vaccinated.  Finally, the National Football League says that if outbreaks of COVID-19 hits unvaccinated players and staff on a team, that team will forfeit games.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Oklahoma state lawmaker Sean Roberts urges an election audit within his state and the fake news media goes berserk and begins attacking him from all sides.  Meanwhile, security analyst Seth Keshel says that President Donald J. Trump actually won Texas by 55-percent rather than the 43-percent certified by the state.  Hence why there are calls for an Arizona-style election audit in the Lone Star State.
  79. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden signed a bill with which to boost the Crime Victims Fund today.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s town hall in Ohio, Joe continues being a laughingstock as there was less than less than 100 people in the auditorium with at least half of them being MSNBC employees.  The applause sounded canned as it has in other Joe Biden ‘appearances’ so it’s clear that most Americans see the drooling old dimwit as the usurper that he is.  How embarrassing.  Joe also is causing other consternation among his handlers as well as for the voice in his earpiece as now he is defending the Senate filibuster when a couple of weeks ago, he was calling it a ‘relic of Jim Crow.’  Come on, Joe, shake the damned cobwebs off, dude.  Come on, man!
  80. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland is going to Chicago to help with efforts to stop out-of-control gun violence in the Windy City.  We wish him luck.  In other regime news, the CIA says that ‘100 agents and their families have become victims of the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome,’ what appears to be microwave or sonic attacks directed at buildings and their occupants or at individuals singled out for such attacks.  To our knowledge, no one has figured out what- exactly- is going on or how it’s being done.  We hope the government gets this under control and responds in kind- 100 times over.
  81. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, always sucking on that lemon, says she is going to forge ahead with her ‘January 06, 2021 Select Committee’ with just her best bud, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and maybe Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, as the ONLY ‘Republicans’ on the panel seeing as how House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, pulled the rest of his appointees following lemon-sucking Nancy booting two of his picks the day before.   Leader McCarthy called Pelosi’s ‘committee’ a ‘sham committee’ and says that the Republicans will create their own January 06, 2021 ‘select’ House committee and will seek the TRUTH.  “Mumbles” Pelosi says she doesn’t give a flying you-know-what.
  82. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Regarding “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘select committee,’ Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, says that the decrepit old House speaker is content to go it alone without any Republicans.  She claims it’s ‘deadly serious, that it’s about the Constitution, that it’s about finding the truth for the American people when everyone understands that this is the witch hunt of witch hunts and that past generations of patriotic American lawmakers from all parties are rolling around in their graves with this foul dingbat destroying the fabled U.S. House of Representatives.  Shame, Nancy, shame.
  83. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Former Detroit Police James Craig made it official late yesterday: he is running to boot the incompetent political hack Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of Michigan out into the street.  Where can we send you money, Chief Craig?   Elsewhere, Rep. Beth Van Duyne, R-TX 24th congressional district, says that the ‘Democrat challenging her can’t even show up to do her own job.’  Speaking of the fugitive Texas Democrats hiding in the nation’s capital as the slave chasers’ breath down their trail, incredibly unphotogenic loser Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and his fund-raising group have sent $600,000 to his colleagues so as to keep them living in the style to which, they have become accustomed.  Good for you, Beto, good for you.  Loser.   Finally, some Texas counties are refusing to comply with Governor Gregg Abbott’s order to detain illegal aliens that fall into law enforcement’s hands.
  84. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– A new Gallup- poll says that race relations in the United States are at their lowest ebb since 2001.  Go figure.  The Democratic Party uses race to drive wages between all Americans.  Next, the Pentagon is restoring five advisory boards after purging them of Trump loyalists.  What is this?  The frigging Soviet Union?  Son-of-a-bitch!  Moving on, Pro-Death Democrats are trying to engineer an end to the Hyde Amendment.  However, Republicans are pushing back as WHY should American taxpayer dollars be used to fund abortions, not just here in our godforsaken country but across the entire flipping planet?   Speaking of Pro-Death movement, Mississippi is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to toss out the landmark abortion ruling, Roe v. Wade.
  85. 2021 Thursday Q: Economic News– Things are not looking good for the Biden regime as the weekly jobs report does not look all that good.  Last week, a whopping 419,000 people filed for first-time jobless benefits as the U.S. economy continues to struggle. 
  86. 2021 Thursday R: Moron News I– Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser quickly removed a CUBA LIBRE mural all the while protecting a Black Lives Matter communist mural in her city.  Mayor “Bow-Wow” Bowser is our MORON OF THE DAY.  Thank you for showing us exactly who you are: a socialist hack.   In other Moron News, Bruce Springsteen and bestie Barack Hussein Obama are releasing a coauthored book in October.  Wow.  How many is it for Barack now?  Seven, eight, nine books about his favorite topic, himself?
  87. 2021 Thursday S: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– The ‘Great White Hope’ (to run against President Donald J. Trump in 2020- according to the Democrats) Michael Avenatti pled ‘NOT GUILTY’ to charges of wire fraud in California.   Elsewhere, the city of Minneapolis is weighing whether or not to get rid of its police department and go in a different direction such as having healthcare workers answer urgent calls from citizens suffering crime.  If the city council should approve this stupidity, it will go on the ballot in November and the leftists trashing the city will vote yay or nay.  This is crazy and none of us will ever visit Minneapolis-St. Paul ever again.
  88. 2021 Thursday T: Big Tech News– The GOP is fighting to push BIG TECH to subsidize broadband across the entire country.  Meanwhile, in a lawsuit filed against Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, President Donald J. Trump said Section 230 is unconstitutional in that it allows these scumbags to run amok censoring whomever they like as though they have greater power than do constitutional governments.  We are moving to Gettr and to other much fairer social media sites which leads us to the next tidbit of news: Twitter is doing better than expected with ad revenues; however, more and more Americans are leaving them to hopefully wither and die on the vine.
  89. 2021 Thursday U: California State News– Pacific Gas & Electric announced it’s going to bury 10,000 miles of power lines underground so as to prohibit wildfires from starting or from getting out of control.  This should have been done long ago.  Meanwhile, Larry Elder has qualified to be on the ballot in September when the citizens of the Golden State boot Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom out on his butt.  Mr. Elder has become the frontrunner.   Most of the chef-authors here in the Golden State like Mr. Elder and believe he will make a phenomenal governor although there will be horrendous gridlock until we can get more Republicans into the state Assembly and Senate in November 2022.  One thing is for certain: with “Nazi” Newsom gone, things will infinitely improve as Mr. Elder is no Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Thank God.
  90. 2022 Friday:  Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with each of us.  We all know the ‘truth is out there’ and when it comes to ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden, the truth swirls around us like a Chi-Com shit storm.  They said President Trump was in the pay of Russian thug Vladimir Putin when in fact, it’s Joe Biden and his entire corrupt family that is in the pay of not only the Russians but the Chi-Coms and the Mexican cartels.  IF anyone is stupid enough to believe that the Biden crime family is not receiving a cut on every illegal alien crossing the border into the U.S., you must be insane.  What other reason that that (1) the Dems believe they are going to hold power forever because of the illegals and (2) the Biden Family is making a killing off each one who crosses the border.  This is insidious and it must stop and in November, we will stop it.  Let me know what you think- Chef E.C. McCardle.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0899 a 36” x 48” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Desert Lights.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

[i] We began promoting the music of Supertramp on Monday, 13-July-2020 and we plan on promoting them through Tuesday, 11-August-2020.  We hope you will seek them and their music out, they are a fantastic band.

[ii] We are not sure when we will begin promoting the music of the Eagles but when we do, we will also do the music of Poco and of each group’s solo members.

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

[iv] We promoted the music of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and of Jimi Hendrix, beginning on Sunday, 22-December-2013 through Thursday, 16-January-2014.  Look for them and add them to your collection.

[v] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

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

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

  43. 1945 Sunday: American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II.  This would prove to be one of the costliest fights of World War II and the catastrophic loss of life on both sides would press President Harry S.

Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais informs his command to cut the Thai auxiliaries loose.  No longer are they dependable.[ix]
  51. 1960 Friday: The United States launched TIROS-1, the nation’s first weather satellite on this date.
  52. 1961 Saturday: Evangelist Jim Bakker marries Tammy Faye.

Fowler- assumed office on this date.  Also, a Democrat, Secretary Fowler served under President Lyndon Baines Johnson from today until December 20, 1968.

  58. 1974 Monday: Ayatollah Khomeini calls for an Islamic Republic in Iran.  We call for the death of the ayatollah.  The guy is little more than a POS stuck to the bottom of one’s shoe.
  59. 1976 Thursday: Stephen Wozniak and Steve Jobs found Apple Computer.
  60. 1979 Sunday: Following the flight of the Shah, Iran proclaims themselves an “Islamic Republic.”  This horrible country would become the number one state sponsor od terrorism.

  64. 1992 Wednesday: The National Hockey League’s Players’ Association went on it’s first-ever strike, which lasted 10 days.  Elsewhere, the world’s 7 wealthiest nations agree on $24 billion aid for former U.S.S.R.

  66. 2000 Saturday: The 2000 United States Census is underway as of today.
  67. 2001 Sunday: George W.

  68. 2002 Monday: Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis and fighting between terrorists and Israeli Defense Forces continues.  Gradually, Israeli troops are pushing the rabid jihadists towards the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem where the human garbage will seek refuge from an Israeli ass-whooping.

  72. 2006 Saturday: White House Press Secretary Tony Snow announces that the administration is concerned over news of a potential toppling of the Lebanese government  by a cabal of Syria, Iran, and Hamas forces.  Of course, it appears that the Bush administration is searching for yet another opportunity to launch a new regime change war in the Middle East, ostensibly to help an ‘ally,’ Beirut.
  73. 2007 Sunday: Former United States Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, Republican, throws his hat into the 2008 Presidential Election race. 
  74. 2008 Tuesday: While the Dalai Lama is visiting India, his hosts request that he not anger neighboring communist China.  India is unclear of its military abilities should the Chi-Coms begin launching attacks along their joint border.  
  75. 2009 Wednesday: In St. Petersburg, Russia, some anti-communist wag partially toppled a statue of Vladimir Lenin at the railway station with a bomb.  Police are seeking the suspect.   Meanwhile, the U.S. and Russia commence talks on a new Strategic Arms Limitations Treaty. 
  76. 2010 Thursday: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev- Vladimir Putin’s puppet- makes a surprise visit to Dagestan following a double suicide attack the day before that killed at least 12 people and wounded numerous others.  Meanwhile, former Alaskan Governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin gives a speech in Nevada to tens of thousands of people seeking to get Senator Harry Reid, D-NV, out of office.

  78. 2012 Sunday: In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood nominates Chairman Khairat El-Shater as a candidate for the May 2012 presidential elections.  Meanwhile, as the Syrian civil war continues to rage, Syrian military assets and artillery begin assaulting the city of Homs where a bunch of antigovernment and perhaps even ISIS thugs are holed up.  Wipe ‘em out, boys.
  79. 2013 Monday: In preparation for plans to step down in 2015, the president of Sudan Omar al-Bashar gives an order to release all political prisoners.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, at the annual convening of the People’s Supreme Assembly, their version of a parliament, begins after Kim Jong Un finished leveling threats of thermonuclear war against BOTH South Korea and the United States.  Fine people do something about it, President Barack Hussein Obama.
  80. 2014 Tuesday:  Fifty-eight miles north of the Chilean city of Iquique, an earthquake of 8.2 magnitude hits the area, stunning the region.  An earlier earthquake that hit on March 16 was 6.2-magnitude on the Richter scale; scientists predict an even bigger one soon.  Meanwhile, thanks to Russian land-grabs in the Crimea, NATO cancels all civil and military cooperation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  We’re sure they’re upset.  Elsewhere, the death toll in the West African nation of Guinea from its ongoing Ebola virus outbreak is now at 80 dead with possibly dozens sickened.
  81. 2015 Wednesday: Following problems with reaching a self-imposed reduction in water usage in drought-stricken California, Democrat Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown mandates a 25-percent reduction under threat of legal punishment to force lower usage of the precious resource.  Meanwhile, the governor-fearful of rising sea levels, continues to allow millions of acre-feet of water to flow out into the Pacific Ocean to protect the Delta smelt.  Impeach the bastard!  Elsewhere, famed British guitarist Dave Ball who played with Procol Harum died on this date in his native England; he was 65 years-old.
  82. 2016 Friday: At the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, the Golden State Warriors’ NBA record for home game wins ends as the Boston Celtics beat them, 109-106; it was the team’s first loss at home since January 2015.  Elsewhere, as world leaders convene in Washington, D.C., at the annual Nuclear Security Summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives them something on which to chew: he fires off a couple of missiles from the east coast of his s***hole country and into the ocean.  “Notice me,” appears to be the message.
  83. 2017 Saturday: In Stockholm, Sweden, famed singer/songwriter Bob Dylan wins his Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in a private ceremony.  God bless you, Bob.   Meanwhile, the government of Communist China announces its plan to build a city three-times the size of New York City (using American money, of course, purloined from us via disastrous past trade ‘deals’) in Xlongan, a new area.  Three years later, they spread the Wuhan Flu to the rest of the world.  Thank you, China, thank you.
  84. 2018 Sunday: In the 37th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, a stunner of a game occurs as Notre Dame beats Mississippi State by a final of 61-58 what with ND forward Jessica Shepard scoring 19 points.  Elsewhere, combined U.S. and South Korean forces commence their annual military drills, codenamed “Foal Eagle” and “Key Resolve.”  Of course, North Korean strongman, Kim Jong Un, is unhappy with the drills.
  85. 2019 Monday: China announces new laws to take effect on May 01, 2019, to stop the production of fentanyl-related opiates.  Okay.  China is the number one provider of opiates to the United States, being the ‘unseen hand’ distributing harmful drugs to Americans and causing far too many to die from them.  Shame.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi ARAMCO is the most profitable company in the world what with $111.1 billion in the previous year.    
  86. 2020 Wednesday: China continues being a major problem for the rest of the globe as the Wuhan Flu continues wreaking havoc wherever it shows up- with the strange exception of China (or so they claim)- with total number of confirmed cases at or near 911,308 and total number of confirmed deaths at 45,497.  We now know, however, that China has concealed- intentionally- the number of confirmed cases and number of confirmed deaths within their country so who the heck can believe anything these totalitarians claim?  The U.S. number of confirmed cases is closing in at 213,000 with 47,000 or so confirmed deaths.  This is outrageous, yet in China, the infamous WET MARKETS are open once more so the populace can enjoy their bat, rat, cat, dog, monkey, snakes, lizards, insects, and other exotic and endangered animals on their dinner table.  Shame!  World beware of the Wuhan Boogie Woogie!
  87. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– A new poll shows that 59-percent of the GOP’s voters do not approve of more gun control laws.  Meanwhile, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AK, said today that ‘Joe Biden’s border crisis is WORSE that a crisis, it’s sheer insanity.’  We concur.  Even federal officials are nonplussed over the (lack of) Biden border plan with which to distribute illegal alien brats across the country.[xi]   Elsewhere, Congressmen John Katko, R-NY 24th congressional district, and Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have authored a bipartisan bill with which to bring sanity back to the southern border.  Moving on, Representative Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that the LEFT puts the fear of God (well, in the case of Democrats- Satan) into Joe Biden which prevents him from owning up to HIS border crisis.
  88. 2021 Thursday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– A recent report shows that the scumbag Iranians are increasing uranium enrichment in their underground lairs more than the law permits.  We say, “Nuke them!  Now!”  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says his major regret is that the administration was unable to get North Korea to give up its nukes.  It is what it is, Mike.  Next, ahead of upcoming OPEC plus meetings, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are discussing energy affordability but then, the U.S. says it’s going to minimize the number of U.S. military deployments to the Middle East to help the Saudis fight the Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.  Meanwhile, the Russians are moving armored and supply units via train towards the eastern Ukraine.  With muddled Old Joe Biden in office, WAR is coming soon.  We predicted this months ago.[xii]  Finally, a U.S. Air Force general warns that Russian activity off the coast of Alaska is increasing at a kinetic pace.  NOT GOOD.
  89. 2021 Thursday B: SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS / GUNS– Like always, the Democrats are pushing for more and more restrictions on firearms.  Good luck with that.  The FBI reports that the month of March 2021 saw the highest number of gun background checks in the U.S. ever what with 4.7 million new requests.  Wow.  Awesome.[xiii]   Speaking of guns, yesterday, we had yet another mass shooting under the Biden administration, this one in California in which a shooter killed four people including a 9-year-old kid.  Joe, WTF, dude?
  90. 2021 Thursday C: ECONOMIC NEWS– a recent report shows that factory activity is expanding at its highest pace since 1983.  People must be thinking President Donald J. Trump is coming back.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration allowed a Trump-era rule to lapse and this one was on the number of H-1B Visas handed out to foreign tech workers.  Americans trained to do these jobs can return to drawing unemployment checks because half of India is returning to the U.S.  Joe, again, WTF?  Elsewhere, last week, 719,000 new claims for unemployment insurance benefits were filed.  This is down yet again.  In other economic news, corporate tenants are looking to offload expensive office space now that millions of Americans can work from home.
  91. 2021 Thursday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– A new report suggests that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov’s $4 million book on the AMAZING job he did with the ‘Chi-Vi’ (yeah, right) was written and edited by the Lov Gov’s staffers.  We wonder, did the Gropin’ Gov share any of his money with them?  Moving on, the U.S. Supreme Court gave the Federal Communications Commission the go-ahead to loosen rules on media companies ownership.  Meanwhile, Colorado is becoming the latest state to weigh in on its sports teams having Native American mascots.  Okay.  Elsewhere, U.S. airlines passengers fell by 60-percent in 2020 (thanks to the Chi-Coms) while gun seizures in the United States are at an all-time high.  Finally, American Jews report a major spike in Antisemitism, especially online.  
  92. 2021 Thursday E: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS I– Joe Biden condemns the Texas Rangers baseball team using the harshest language (for him) over their opening the ballpark in Arlington, Texas, to FULL CAPACITY!  Awesome.  Life is returning to normal in civilized places.  Next, the Biden infrastructure plan is to RAISE corporate taxes which has led Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell to label it a ‘liberal wish list.’  What with growing pushback across the country to this ignorant ‘plan,’ Joe Biden is demanding his Cabinet ‘go out and begin promoting the $2 trillion give-away to liberal causes.’[xiv]  Finally, for some reason known only to God Almighty, Joe Biden is sending $125 million to the frigging Palestinians.  WTF?  (Note- the Senate GOP is BEGGING Joe Biden to keep jobs in America, not send them overseas which always seems to be Joe’s way).
  93. 2021 Thursday F: COVID-19 NEWS– Pfizer reports that after six months, it’s shots for the coronavirus remain 91-percent effective.  As long as it’s not that skin-peeling, Johnson & Johnson crap, we’re good.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, presented a new bill, “The Fire Fauci Act.”  Everyone is sick of the AMAZING Dr. “Tiny Tony” Fauci.  This man has lied and spread so much misinformation that it’s high time this guy was booted out on his butt.  He’s a bum.  
  94. 2021 Thursday G: POLITICAL CORRECTNESS/WOKE NEWS/MORON NEWS– Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia is firing back at befuddled Old Joe Biden’s demand that the Major League Baseball All-Star Game be pulled from Atlanta, due to the new Voting Rights Bill in the Peach State.  ‘Ridiculous,’ says the man sitting in overweight Stacey Abrams’ seat (yeah, right, LOL).  Next, Bud Light pulled a fast one on the American people (after all, it’s April Fool’s Day) by showing photos of its new pizza-flavored seltzer.  Yuck (but of course, young people are stupid and like all manner of stupid stuff).   Moving on, incredibly unattractive and terribly stupid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” aka Sandy Cortez (her birth name) is upping the ante on Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill.[xv]  She wants a $10 trillion infrastructure bill.  What, is this f***ing monopoly money?  Finally, the Star Wars franchise is going to have new trans/nonbinary characters.  Ah, aren’t you all WOKE?  Dumb asses.
  95. 2021 Thursday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II– Iran and other world powers are discussing the re-entry of the United States into the Iran Nuclear Deal, aka the JCPOA.  Wow.  Thanks, Joe.  Elsewhere, BIG TECH guy Tim Cook blasts Georgia for its new voting rights law while remaining entirely silent on Uighur concentration camps in Xinjiang Province.  That’s a BIG CORPORATE head for you, sucking up to Beijing while blasting fellow Americans.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, seven pro-democracy advocates in Hong Kong have just been convicted in a ‘Chi-Com court’ for daring to defend the deal the Chi-Coms promised to observe- a 50-year-transition.  That’s communists for you.  Next, last night Tucker Carlson reported on Canada’s INTERNMENT HOTELS where all Canadian citizens exiting airplanes in that country are whisked off to internment centers where they are held for three days- or until repeated COVID-19 tests clear them (still, after three days)- before being released.  Even worse, the internees pay for their own room and board which according to Mr. Carlson sees little food and even less water provided to the inmates.  Even worse, the doors don’t lock and there have been reports of sexual assaults occurring in the middle of the night.  This is Canada? 
  96. 2021 Thursday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II–  Angry Los Angeles County residents are suing the L.A. County Teachers’ Union as well as the Los Angeles Unified School District for NOT holding in-person classes for the kids.  (Note- we look forward to the disciplinary problems the teachers are going to face when schools reopen.  Teachers are going to get their asses beat and even murdered by out-of-control sociopathic students.  Serves them right).  Next, Lara Trump says, ‘it’s outrageous’ that her interview with her father-in-law was banned from Facebook and Instagram.  Do what we did- we closed our social media accounts with the exception of Lilah’s Twitter account.  Elsewhere, Governor Greg Gianforte, R-MT, signed a bill into law in his state that prohibits SANCTUARY CITIES and demands that ALL law enforcement cooperate with federal law enforcement officers and agencies.  Finally, a report on the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021- the Capitol Hill Riots, the ones in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter infiltrated peaceful Trump supporters and carried out an incursion into the Capitol says that the majority of the blame falls on D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s ‘police forces being unprepared.’  There you go.

Today in History, April 01, 2021, at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day:


[i] Stinkbug would always say he was born in Oildale, California, which is 10 miles or so north of Pumpkin Center because he was embarrassed to tell people he was born in Pumpkin Center because people would laugh.  Now, he says he doesn’t give a f*** what anyone says.  Happy birthday, Stinky!

[ii] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[iv] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vi] See previous.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of Steely Dan at some point within the next 10-15 years.  Please stay with us.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of this exciting professional band, Toto, at some point in the future.

[ix] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[x] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[xi] Chef Lilah Paulikovich in Hawaii reports that the first planeload of illegal alien minors arrived at Honolulu’s airport the other day.  In many places, foster care children are getting booted onto the streets so illegal alien snots can take their place.  Folks, what the Democrats are doing with illegal aliens is the same thing they did with black slaves in the Old South prior to the Civil War.  The Democrats are always on the wrong side of history, fighting to protect the evil institution of slavery, in this case, the economic low-wage slavery of illegal aliens.

[xii] Last year we predicted an alliance of communist China, Russia, Iran, and probably some lesser members such as Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and others and that they would launch various actions in their ‘neck of the woods’ because with Joe Biden in the White House, folks, there isn’t going to be a better time to launch attacks around the world, rather like the Axis during World War II.  It’s coming. 

[xiii] Virtually everyone- and we mean everyone- here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM has gone out- with family members- and added guns, accessories, and ammunition like there’s no tomorrow.  F*** the Democrats.

[xiv] Yet, “Cocaine Mitch” is praising Joe Biden while slamming his administration.  That’s the way, Mitch, that’s the way to play BOTH SIDES of the fence. 

[xv] House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that ‘Joe Biden’s absurd $2 trillion ‘infrastructure bill’ is no joke.  We have to stop this crap.

88. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MARCH 29, 2022

2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS- Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them. Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings. We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.

  25. 1932 Tuesday: Jack Benny debuts on radio on Ed Sullivan’s New York Interview program.
  26. 1936 Sunday: Nazi propaganda claims 99% of Germans voted for Nazi candidates.  More than 82 years in the 2020 Presidential Election, the same types of liars will claim that slobbering Joe Biden, a senile, pro-communist China-loving loser received 80 million votes over the 76 million for President Donald J. Trump.  Everyone knows that the majority of Germans did not vote for the Nazis just as the world knows eight decades-plus later that a loser like Joe Biden received 80 million popular votes.  It’s a bunch of malarkey.
  27. 1940 Friday: Joe Louis knocks out Johnny Paycheck in 2 to retain heavyweight-boxing title.  Elsewhere, Soviet Foreign Minister Vyacheslav Molotov announces that the Soviet Union ‘will remain neutral in the war between Nazi Germany and France and Britain.’  Boy, does he have a surprise coming his way in June 1941.  Speaking of the Soviets, they are looking to nick off Bessarabia from Rumania which will put the Rumanians in the Axis camp.
  28. 1941 Saturday: As the British continue pushing through Ethiopia on the way to liberate the capital of Addis Ababa from the Fascist Italians, Italian civilians- who have no love for the war imposed upon them by Il Duce- are begging for protection from the British.  Renegade Askari troops are running amok murdering, raping, and torturing Italians wherever they find them.
  29. 1942 Sunday: Things are dire for the British indeed when they begin floating the idea of granting independence to their crown colony of India following a successful conclusion to World war II.  They desperately need Indian colonial troops to help them prosecute the war on all fronts.   Meanwhile, the RAF bomber command begins attacking civilian targets in Germany.  The strategy is to harm the civilian population as much as possible with the idea of driving them to take down the Nazi government.  Of course, this will never happen, and the German people will suffer horribly at the hands of their enemies.
  30. 1943 Monday: World War II rationing of meat, fats, and cheese began across the United States.  Meanwhile, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Chad Allan—multi-instrumentalist with Chad Allan and the Expressions, the band that would become the Guess Who[ii]—is born.  Elsewhere, the British Admiralty is weighing a difficult decision- do they suspend aid convoys to their new allies, the Soviet Union, because they lack the naval and long-range air assets to protect the convoys heading to Arctic Russian ports or do, they continue sending supplies and losing precious ships and personnel?
  31. 1944 Wednesday: Imperial Japanese forces continue trying to invest the eastern Indian city of Imphal, perhaps one of their worst-planned, self-inflicted military disasters yet.  When they should have been withdrawing their forces to points further east to defend the territories nearer to home conquered by them in late 1941-mid-1943, they have the idea that the people of India will join them in destroying the British.  This won’t happen- the Brits promised the Indian people their independence.  
  32. 1945 Thursday: During World War II, March 29 is the final day Nazi Germany launches B-1 attacks against Great Britain while the Soviet Army on the Eastern Front mauls the German 4th Army to the point that it no longer is battle-worthy.  In Hungary, as the Germans continue being forced back by the Red Army, Hungarian troops are deserting in droves and joining with the Reds.  They must do what they must to survive this horrendous conflict.  Still, the Germans can dish out a harsh mauling here and there.
  33. 1947 Saturday: Future keyboardist and vocalist with the rock band, Toto (1977-1984 / 1989 / 1998-2008)- Bobby Kimball- is born on this date.
  34. 1949 Tuesday: Turkey recognizes Israel.  When they were still a FREE democratic republic, the Turks were great people and were friendly with much of the world.  Fifty years later or so when the dictator would come and make the country into a junior partner of the Islamist school of thought, all of this would go out the window.
  35. 1951 Thursday: Julius and Ethel Rosenberg suffer conviction for espionage and in 1953, the couple will meet their end in the electric chair.
  36. 1954 Monday: The French paratroopers under the command of Major Marcel Bigeard manage to destroy numerous People’s Army antiaircraft artillery pieces which allows for French air assets to bring in supplies and reinforcements and to take out several hundred wounded soldiers.  Meanwhile, the command structure in Dien Bien Phu comes to the harsh decision that road clearing operations between the main camp and Isabelle to the south is becoming a costly daily battle for the troops.  Isabelle will have to rely on air drops from whatever planes can penetrate the AA batteries surrounding them.  Still, the French have no intention of giving in to the communists.
  37. 1961 Wednesday: After a 4-year trial, Nelson Mandela wins acquittal on treason charges.  In the U.S., the 23rd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution passes ratification thereby allowing the residents of Washington, D.C., to vote in presidential elections.
  38. 1962 Thursday: Jack Paar hosted NBC’s “Tonight” show for the final time, although the network aired a repeat the following night.  Johnny Carson debuted as host the following October.  Meanwhile, communist authorities ordered the trials of the failed Bay of Pigs participants in Cuba.

  40. 1966 Tuesday: Muhammad Ali beats George Chuvalo in a 15-round unanimous decision.   Ali improved his pro record to 23-0 by beating the Canadian heavyweight in a unanimous decision.  In so doing, he retained the WBC, the NYSAC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight boxing titles.  Chuvalo in his loss to Ali saw his record drop to 34-12-2.  Still, he went the distance with the Greatest.
  41. 1971 Monday: U.S. Army 1st Lt William L Calley, Jr. found guilty in the My Lai (Vietnam) Massacre.  The military tribunal convicted Lt. Calley of 22 deaths and sentenced him to serve three years of house arrest.  Meanwhile, a jury in Los Angeles, California, recommended the death penalty for Charles Manson and three female followers for the 1969 Tate-La Bianca murders; however, a judge later commuted the sentences.  
  42. 1973 Thursday: The last United States combat troops left South Vietnam, ending America’s direct military involvement in the Vietnam War.  In an address to the nation, President Richard Nixon declared, “For the first time in 12 years, no American military forces are in Vietnam.”
  43. 1974 Friday: A court indicted eight Ohio National Guardsmen on federal charges stemming from the shooting deaths of four students at Kent State University; however, the court later dropped the charges.  Elsewhere, Mariner 10, the U.S. space probe, became the first spacecraft to reach the planet Mercury.  NASA launched it on November 03, 1973.

  54. 2003 Saturday: Thanks to the Chi-Coms, SARS- Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome- is running amok in various parts of the world.  In the Canadian city of Toronto, health authorities report at least 100 cases due to loads of Chinese going back and forth.
  55. 2004 Monday: Bulgaria, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia joined NATO as full members, welcomed into the organization by President George W. Bush at the White House.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com bullying, the nation of Dominica withdraws its diplomats from the Republic of China- Taiwan- and sends them to Beijing.  Cowards.  Meanwhile, scientists are all agog at having found methane in the Martian atmosphere which means there could be organic processes occurring on the Red Planet.  We suspect there are- where’s there’s water, folks, there’s life and where there’s life, there’s methane.
  56. 2005 Tuesday: In war-devastated Iraq- thanks to the Bush-Cheney administration- three Romanian journalists undergo kidnapping by violent jihadists.  Although these poor souls face having their heads lopped off, it’s clearer that the scumbags holding them want to charge a massive ransom for their safe return.  We shall see.
  57. 2006 Wednesday: Christian convert Abdul Rahman flees Afghanistan and receives asylum in Italy.  Multitudes of Afghan clerics and government officials demand his extradition back to his home country so they can show him what Islamic ‘justice’ is.
  58. 2007 Thursday: Once again, a militant hegemonic Iran is up to no good.  The U.N. Security Council is wagging a finger at them in ‘grave, grave concern’ over the Iranian Revolutionary Guard capturing and imprisoning 15 British Royal Navy and Marines they claim entered their territorial waters.  Time to drop some neutron bombs on these sand maggots.
  59. 2008 Saturday: Liberals are creaming their pants around the world as today is EARTH HOUR, a time in which, slobbering liberals encourage everyone to go without ALL nonessential power between the hour of 8-9:00 P.M. local time.  This will show those dastardly energy-guzzling scumbags like Senator John F. Kerry, D-MA.
  60. 2009 Sunday: At a nursing home in Carthage, North Carolina, a POS gunman goes on a rampage killing at least 8 people and wounding another 3.  Democrats immediately begin screaming for ‘GUN CONTROL!  CONFISCATE ALL GUNS!  DESTROY THE NRA!’  To be expected, every time some schmuck uses a gun for evil.
  61. 2010 Monday: At least 38 people die and 60 suffer injuries when two female suicide bombers carry out two separate terrorist attacks at Moscow Metro stations Lubyana and Park Kultury.   Elsewhere, in Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi and her political movement, the National League for Democracy, announces that it will boycott the upcoming elections because of the corruption of their government.
  62. 2011 Tuesday: James Bullard, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis calls for the Federal Reserve to limit its purchase of U.S. Treasuries because they ‘feed the fire’ of inflation.  Meanwhile, from one end of the Near and Middle East to the other, people are running amok during the ‘Arab Spring.’  Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is assuming control of the entire government after two weeks of violent protests.
  63. 2012 Thursday: In New Delhi, India, leaders of Brazil, Russia, China, South Africa, and India meet for the 2012 BRICS summit.  Elsewhere, in San Pedro Sula prison in Honduras, inmates run amok and at least 13 people are slain in the violence. 
  64. 2013 Friday:  New research on the Shroud of Turin supports that it may been used as Jesus Christ’s burial cloth; researchers used mechanical and thermal measurements to date the shroud between 300 BC and 400 AD.  Elsewhere, in Peshawar, Pakistan, a vehicle bomb explodes near the U.S. Embassy, killing 10 people outright and injuring at least another 35-40 people.
  65. 2014 Saturday:  Russia makes assurances that the country will not invade Ukraine in its efforts to resolve the dispute over its annexation of Crimea.  Of course, the Russians have already gobbled up the Crimea and will soon be waging undeclared war in eastern Ukraine on behalf of ‘Russian separatists’ there.
  66. 2015 Sunday: To combat the ISIS thugs, Egyptian President Fattah al-Sisi announces that moderate Arab states will begin allowing their militaries to work with one another since Barack Obama cut off aid to Egypt, Jordan, and others.  Saudi Arabia has already been battling Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen.   Meanwhile, Pakistan is sending a Boeing 747 to evacuate its diplomats and civilians out of that crumbling country.
  67. 2016 Tuesday: Due to increasing strife and chaos along the southern border of Turkey with Iraq, the U.S. State Department as well as the Pentagon begin ordering all diplomatic and military personnel to evacuate.  ISIS is continuing to run amok in Syria butchering and killing people all over the place so in order to avoid an international incident, it’s time to begin withdrawing U.S. personnel.  We’d hate to go to war in Syria, right (or have we already been fighting there)?  Elsewhere, Breitbart News reports that Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is charged with battery for allegedly having pushed their reporter, Michelle Fields, away from his candidate on March 08.  What a load of crap.
  68. 2017 Wednesday: Britain filed for divorce from the European Union as Prime Minister Theresa May sent a six-page letter to EU Council President Donald Tusk.  Meanwhile, Ivanka Trump assumes a position as an unpaid advisor to her father, President Donald J. Trump.   Elsewhere, jihadists continue running amok in Iraq as a suicide bomber targets a police roadblock.  The subsequent explosion kills 15 people outright and injures at least another 40 poor souls.
  69. 2018 Thursday: Because the U.S. Department of Homeland Security failed to notify screened asylum seekers that their one-year period for requesting asylum was going to end, thus prompting the illegals to hurry up with their claims, Judge Ricardo S. Martinez orders the DHS to give the ‘asylum seekers’ another year to file their applications and also orders the DHS to fix their rules.   Meanwhile, the 2018 Major League Baseball season gets underway.  
  70. 2019 Friday: Democratic politician Lucy Flores accuses former vice president and presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden of an ‘inappropriate kiss.’  Oh, well; it’s not the first time.   Elsewhere, a judge in the Cayman Islands, a judge throws out a law stipulating that marriage is between one man and one woman and thus legalizes with the stroke of a pen gay marriage.  And another one bites the dust.
  71. 2020 Sunday: Thanks to the Wuhan Flu leaving China and enveloping the world, the number of confirmed global cases sits at 718,685 what with 33,881 confirmed deaths from the virus.  Meanwhile, in the United States, we know of 139,675 cases with at least 2,436 deaths.  China continues trying to alleviate itself of the sole responsibility as creators of this horrendous virus, but everyone knows the communists sitting pretty in Beijing are the culprits and that when the crisis passes, they will be held to account for it.  Shame on them: your plan to take out President Trump by ruining the global economy is a complete failure.
  72. 2021 Monday: JOE BIDEN NEWS– First, we hear that Joe Biden’s administration won’t lift the Trump-imposed tariffs on the People’s Republic of (communist) China.  This remains to be seen.  Next, Joe Biden says he has no plans on meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.  Joe plans to take a tough stance towards Pyongyang.  We shall see what the gets us.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump made a surprise visit to a wedding being held on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago and much to the delight of the guests began ripping into feeble old Joe Biden.   In other Joe Biden news, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, slams Uncle Joe and his administration for labeling everything RACIST or calling it JIM CROW.  We agree.  Enough is enough already![iv]
  73. 2021 Monday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS I– In the Suez Canal, after offloading the quarter-mile-long Panamanian-flagged, Japanese-owned container ship, an armada of tugboats and cranes was finally able to get the ship back into the water.  Global economic losses per day due to the complete stoppage of canal traffic is estimated to be at $9 billion per day.  Prices on all goods will go up while others will once again be snapped up by hoarders.   Next, a report on One America News says that U.S. banks are busily divesting from communist China Tech and mainstream media companies.  Good.  They are a bunch of propagandists.   Next, Kim Jong Un says that the ‘United Nations is trying to negate his nation’s ability to defend itself from foreign attack.’
  74. 2021 Monday B: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– late last night, we were able to witness video in which a Baby Evita look-alike with BIG GOO-GOO EYES and a black face mask was prohibiting U.S. senators from filming the outrageous human rights abuses occurring in border holding pens for illegal aliens.  Apparently, the Biden administration has hired a bunch of young leftists to shield anyone from getting too close to the illegal aliens, languishing in squalid conditions far worse than what Kim Jong Un does to three generations of dissidents in his country.   This is contemptable and it must stop NOW.  Speaking of the border, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, supposedly the nation’s vice president, says she (and Uncle Joe) are NOT going to visit the southern border anytime soon but that she- as the new BORDER CZAR[v]– will meet with Central American leaders so she can address the illegal alien invasion at its source(s).   (Note- the administration says they are working on a plan but won’t say what the plan might be.  We at the AICPENDBLOG.COM suspect it will be sending trillions of taxpayer dollars to Third World despots and thugs).
  75. 2021 Monday C: POLLING NEWS– a recent poll shows that 57-percent of the American people disapprove of Joe Biden’s handling of the Second Amendment and his bid to outlaw all guns.  The same poll says that 54-percent of the American people view the activities along our southern border as a CRISIS although Uncle Joe and his bought-and-paid-for fake news media hacks do their best to avoid calling it as such.   Another poll shown on Newsmax says that a significant percentage of the American people view Cancel Culture as a dire threat to liberty and freedom.  Time to destroy it, folks.
  76. 2021 Monday D: COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS NEWS– Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows blasts Dr. Deborah Birx and the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci for their revisionist rearrangement of what we know about COVID-19, whence it came from, and how bad it is.  The American people are tired of the constant barrage of lying and intimidation on the China Virus.  Elsewhere, the Centers for Disease Control have extended the moratorium on evictions.  We didn’t know the CDC was in control of who could and who could not be evicted?  At what time will landlords be provided aid?  In other CDC news, the agency nixed Governor Ron DeSantis’ request to get the cruise lines up and going now that the Chi-Vi is scaling back.  Governor DeSantis says he will fight them and is threatening to sue.  Next, a new report released by the World Health Organization says that ‘the Chinese Virus came from animals, NOT from the Wuhan Institute of Virology,’ which if we are to believe this crock of festering crap returns us to the Wuhan Meat Market Malady Theory (although the virus came from animals and the Chi-Coms inside the institute were studying bat viruses.  Ba-bam!).
  77. 2021 Monday E: CRIME NEWS– Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser (bow-wow) victim blames the Pakistani immigrant Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar who was carjacked by two young black female thugs and left for dead in an ensuing accident caused by them.  Mayor Bowser is protecting the young thugs while issuing ‘tips’ on how to prevent future carjackings.  We guess Muslims rank lower on the chart of Liberal Identity Politics than once they did.  Elsewhere, the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin is underway with opening statements made by both sides.  If the jurors follow the law, from what we saw already, it appears that Officer Chauvin will be cleared of all charges and will be reinstated on the force, IF the jurors follow the law.  Meanwhile, an Antifa mob in Salem, Oregon, attacked a Blue Lives Matter rally.  Next, reports from the Windy City from last night say that a car full of shooters pulled up alongside a party bus at a stoplight and lit the vehicle up.  One was killed outright and at least three others suffered injuries in the unprovoked assault.  Finally, in the Washington State House of Representatives, a bill has been passed prohibiting open carry at the state capitol and on state property.
  78. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– The National Rifle Association reports that business is good with an average of 1,000 new signups each day.  Excellent.   Meanwhile, Los Angeles County, California, has decided that violent crime has gotten so out of control that they are going to REFUND the law enforcement budget $36 million they cut from it several months back.  Next, Piers Morgan comes to the defense of Sharon Osbourne, recently fired from the ‘chick show,’ The Talk, for defending him.  Whatever the f*** happened to the right to express one’s opinions? 
  79. 2021 Monday G: GOP NEWS I– Senator Dan Sullivan, R-AK, says he will support his fellow senator, the highly unlikable party hack, Lisa Murkowski, who is facing a tough road ahead.  Alaska GOP politician Kelly Tshibaka, former Department of Administration commissioner, is seeking to primary Senator Murkowski in 2022.  Where can we send money, Kelly?   Elsewhere, famed attorney Linn Wood says he is seeking to become head of South Carolina’s GOP.  Uh, okay, didn’t you cost the state of Georgia TWO Senate seats, Mr. Wood?  Next, Senator Thom Tillis, R-NC, tells the media that he has a ‘prostate cancer’ confirmation from his doctor.  Good luck, Senator.  Hang in there.
  80. 2021 Monday H: POPULAR CULTURE NEWS– If you want to know where the blood of aborted fetuses go, rapper Lil NAS X and Nike are offering a limited-edition shoe, 666 pairs at more than a grand each dedicated to Satan.  In fact, the shoes are so ‘satanic,’ that the ‘Church of Satan’ has said, ‘right on, son, right on.’  Each pair of tennis shoes is made with ONE DROP of human blood which is sick enough, but the shoes are covered with satanic symbols and the like and what is clear to us is that although many will dismiss the shoes as a passing fancy, in a culture where Christianity and Judaism is under constant assault, this is evil shit.  Nike says we just make them, we neither approve nor disapprove of the shoes.  Wow.  NO more Nike shoes for us as this is sick shit.  Elsewhere, the author of Captain Underpants- David Murray Pilkey Jr.- has just had his books banned for…wait for it…you guessed it: PASSIVE RACISM.  Wow.
  81. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– New Mexico is suing the Biden administration over its plan to store nuclear waste in the Cactus State.  We keep waiting for someone such as Elon Musk to find a way to recycle and reuse spent uranium.  That would be a game changer as far a nuclear energy goes.  Imagine if atomic energy became so commonplace and safe that all ships and aircraft could be powered via nuclear energy, it would flatten the costs of fuel for massive cargo ships such as the one recently freed in the Suez Canal.   Speaking of Elon Musk, first, the Biden administration is floating a $3 trillion ‘infrastructure/green energy bill’ that will rely heavily on high-speed rail crisscrossing the country.[vi]  Folks, in California, each mile of the failed HSR project costs $200 million and much of the work done on it is done by the Chi-Coms.[vii]  Elon Musk is in the process of making the Hyperloop a reality just as he is a tunnel network that will permit self-driving vehicles to zip people underground across the country at 150 mph or more.  Hey, Uncle Joe: how about working with Elon Musk you senile old f***?   Speaking of energy, a new report says that the Chi-Coms are responsible for more than HALF of all coal emissions on the planet and it’s the United States that must use windmills and solar farms.
  82. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,479,098 confirmed cases, +46,271, 2,788,212  confirmed deaths, +7,436, and 72,276,724 confirmed recoveries, +316,035.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,318,775 confirmed cases, up 64,285 from yesterday’s reporting, 549,863 confirmed deaths, UP 394, and 118,013,462 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.

  87. 2021 Monday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– It would appear that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo has yet another accuser claiming that the ‘Gropin’ Gov’ groped her and didn’t want to let go.  What a POS and yet like a turd stuck to the side of the crapper, this piece of fecal matter refuses to go.  The new accuser says that the handsy governor groped this woman while touring her FLOODED flipping home.  Ye gods, is there NOTHING this scum bum won’t do?  Speaking of floods, several people lost their lives in flash-flooding in Tennessee.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Rick Danko released his third solo album, “Live on Breeze Hill,” on July 27, 1999.  The album was recorded at a live show three months before the legendary bassist/fiddler/vocalist died which makes it an alluring show.  Always cursed with substance abuse problems and subsequent poor health, Danko was a fragile individual yet a brave, powerful performer.   Of the 12 cuts on this superb outing, most of them are Band classics, both tunes he and Richard Manuel sang as well as one or two from Levon Helm.  Also included are some of his originals which makes it a glorious purchase to be sure.  Joining Danko are friend, Garth Hudson (keyboards/accordions), Jim Weider and Roger Mason (guitars, basses), Randy Ciarlante (vocals/drums/percussion), three brass players and another keyboardist.  We certainly hope that you will seek this album out at your favorite haunt for music and give it a good listen- we think you will enjoy it.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.

[i] The young United States should have taken ALL of Mexico down through the Central American countries to where the southern end of Panama meets the northern end of Colombia.  Had we done that, we would have solved the issue of illegal immigration.  We should have also taken Cuba in 1898 and kept her just as we should have gone back and taken Canada.  What a glorious nation we would have, one now being overrun with Third World illegal aliens.

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

[iii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys. 

[iv] Democrats think that if they call everything racist or Jim Crow or some combination of the terms that they can guilt or shame the American people into silence.  Here’s the deal- we don’t give a flying f*** anymore, call us racist as much as you like but one day when a REAL incidence of racism occurs and no one gives a damn, you will only have yourselves to blame.

[v] Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says that ‘putting (“Kooky”) Kamala Harris in charge along the border is akin to putting banned cyclist Lance Armstrong in charge of the DEA.’  You just don’t do that because as everyone knows, the former senator from California believes that border officials and immigration authorities are akin to the Ku Klux Klan.  F*** you, “Kooky Kamala.”

[vi] National debt in the United States sits at $28 trillion and is expected to double within 30 years or less.  Yikes.

[vii] In France, the cost per mile of high-speed rail is $30 million which still seems high.  However, in the United States, projects such as these are big pools of money from which, liberal politicians reward not only their flunkies and lackeys but also themselves which is why work is tortuously slow and cost overruns are increase by the day.  The people of California do not want this crap and yet the crap is forced upon us and Joe Biden plans to see that the money-go-round continues.

  72. 2020 Sunday: The Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus continues causing mass panic around the world as food service establishments begin shuttering their doors in many cities around the world.  Meanwhile, people continue swamping stores, buying everything off store shelves and leaving them empty for loads of others.  As of today, these are the facts: around the planet (of course, we have no clue as to what is occurring in China), there are 156,400 confirmed cases.  That’s right, 156,400 confirmed cases with 5,833 confirmed deaths.  As for those who have recovered, there are 73,968 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, so far, ONLY 40 people have died from China’s Wuhan Virus.  Elsewhere, former Vice President Joe Biden and Marxist Senator Bernie Sanders debated one another on CNN with no crowd in the room.  What a snooze fest.  Two cantankerous old WHITE men bashing one another for their poor records.  Tom Perez: listen, YOU POS, put Tulsi Gabbard in the debates, they might draw far better crowds than the crap you are running now.  Just saying.
  73. 2021 Monday: DAY 55 of the Biden Regime- today is a busy flipping day, folks.  Stacey Abrams- failed gubernatorial candidate in Georgia and an engineer of the election fraud in the Peach State in 2020 is encouraging the U.S. Senate to throw the filibuster rule onto the dung heap of history so the Senate can ramrod H.R. 1[vi] through to fruition like a Chi-Com doctor ramming an anal swab up the nether regions of a U.S. diplomat arriving in the People’s Republic of China.  H.R. 1 and the subsequent Senate equivalent would forever alter the way Americans vote; however, it would be entirely unconstitutional so everything would fall atop the shoulders of Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court.  Would he uphold the Constitution or would he, too, throw it atop the trash heap?
  74. 2021 Monday A:  The Nigerian government reports that clashes with Boko Haram or a spin-off Islamist group has led to the loss of at least 30 soldiers.  In other foreign news, Kosovo announces that it is moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem in accordance with its signing of a peace deal negotiated by the Trump administration.   Speaking of this momentous occasion, Jared Kushner expresses hope that the ‘Biden administration’ won’t throw the previous administration’s foreign policy successes- most notably the Abraham Accords- onto the garbage pile. 
  75. 2021 Monday B: The United States Marine Corps apologizes for saying hateful things about Tucker Carlson of the Fox News Channel.  Mr. Carlson had expressed incredulity that the most important things in which, the U.S. military in general and the United States Marine Corps in particular would concern themselves with, i.e., WOKE POLITICS such as sex changes and flight suits for pregnant pilots and the USMC responded with hate speech.  What has happened to the U.S. military?  Oh, the leadership are ALL Obama generals and admirals.  NO wonder Democrats want to continue fighting permanent wars with trannys and gays.  Wow.
  76. 2021 Monday C: Communist China says things are going so well with their economy that they are going to pull their lab-engineered COVID-19 relief stimulus from their public.  Their economy is the ONLY one in the world on a trajectory straight up following the pandemic trashing the world.  As if this wasn’t planned.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Cornell University professors are at odds with one another over ending Chi-Com programs on campus, programs that allow Beijing to sow propaganda (as well as BIG BUCKS) on students and faculty alike.  Leftists hate to give up sources of enrichment for selling out their country. 
  77. 2021 Monday D:  The White House is on the road this week as Joe Biden and Dr. Jill and Kooky Kamala and her husband seek to inform the American people of all the GREAT THINGS the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 ‘Relief’ bill is going to bestow upon them, even though the bulk of the ‘relief funds’ won’t be spent until 2024-2028.[vii]  Wow.  Can’t wait.  Still, the media blitz and all the advertisements are going to wash over the country for the next several weeks.  We hope that Joe Biden will remember where he is.  We also learned today that in order to pay for this hoopla, Joe Biden is going to launch the first major federal tax hikes since 1993- who didn’t see this one coming?   The federal government ‘gives us’ $1,400 in stimulus funds, we pay them back $2,800 in federal taxes.  Awesome.  Keep your money.
  78. 2021 Monday E: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, visits the southern border at El Paso, Texas, with other GOP leaders to view the ongoing crisis, one House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi blames President Donald J. Trump for- what?  How does #45 bear any responsibility for the border crisis other than that he lacked the time to finish building the border wall to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens?   In other border news, Texas Governor Greg Abbot says that ‘the lack of a border coherent border policy other than ‘come on in’ under the Biden administration is 100-percent responsible for the humanitarian crisis at the border.’  Still, Republican state attorneys-general are pushing back against the Biden policies favorable to illegal aliens and NOT for U.S. citizens.   
  79. 2021 Monday F:  In other Border News, Congressman Greg Steube, R-Fl 17th congressional district, tells Newsmax today that ‘Joe Biden is 100-percent responsibility for the humanitarian disaster occurring along our southern border.’   His colleague, Congressman Chuck Fleischmann, R-TN 3rd congressional district, says there is a tremendous crisis on the southern border.  The Washington Examiner reports that ONE illegal alien invader facility holding brats is at 729-percent- 729-PERCENT- capacity and NO one- including little Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is down there shedding tears.  Where is Nancy Pelosi?  Where is “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer?  Where oh where oh where are all the bleeding-heart liberals.  DEPORT THEM ALL.  
  80. 2021 Monday G: Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo toured a vaccination site in the Empire State today and after giving a brief speech, he refused to take any questions from assembled reporters.  “Killer” Cuomo’s ratings are their lowest thanks in part to his sexual mischief of groping women, propositioning women, and other misbehavior as well as the fact that the deaths of between 15,000-to-20,000 seniors in his state rests squarely atop his shoulders.  However, fellow serial groper/molester Joe Biden won’t call for “Killer” Cuomo to resign.  Pervs always stick together.  In an effort to deflect blame from his shoulders, “Killer” Cuomo follows the path fellow sexual deviates like Harvey Weinstein have taken before him.  The crumbling governor calls for $7 billion in NEW TAXES on the wealthy thinking that being a ‘class warrior’ will somehow help him keep his job- Harvey Weinstein is in prison.   Add to this another scandal, this one being “Killer” Cuomo’s Chi-Vi Vax Czar hammering county officials to ‘profess their support of “Killer” Cuomo if they want to obtain COVID-19 vaccines for their citizens.’  Wow.  Not good.  All this has led to the collapse of the governor’s approval ratings.  Cuomo- just flipping go.
  81. 2021 Monday H: In other corrupt Democratic Party news and liberal hypocrisy, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser demands citizens show ID before getting their vaccinations whereas when it comes to voting, showing ID is somehow RACIST.  Good for you, mayor.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, 25-percent of U.S. House of Representatives’ members have not yet gotten their Wuhan Virus inoculations.  We also hear that as China Virus cases continue to rise in prisons across the country, prison guards and staff are refusing to take the shots.  So are we.  F**k those pushing this bogus crap.  Speaking of the Hubei Hooey vaccinations, the state of Illinois is blasting the Biden administration over its ‘equitable rollout of the Chi-Com Virus vaccine.’  Race politics as usual.   Meanwhile, medical professionals like the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci warn that COVID-19 vaccine skepticism will prohibit a return to normalcy.  Screw you.   Finally, little Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook unveils a new plan to help their dimwitted followers find vaccination sites.  Question: WHAT did people do before Facebook?  Answer: they did it themselves.  Note- Facebook is going to ‘label’ all posts regarding the Chi-Com Bat Flu vaccine as either true or false. 
  82. 2021 Monday I: A recent study reports that fewer students plan on attending four-year universities and colleges than ever.  No wonder, private schools typically cost $50,000 per year (and some per semester) while public universities can cost $25,000 per year.  You spend that money and America-hating liberals indoctrinate you.  We can’t blame the young folks for not wanting to go.    In other news, another study says that Smartphones can cause ‘sleeplessness, stress, and anxiety.’  Like we say about Facebook and social media, just stop using the phones.  You will feel so much better.  Next, Elon Musk changes his job description from ‘CEO’ to ‘Techno King of Tesla.’  Why not just call yourself, ‘emperor?’  Finally, actor Matthew McConaughey is going to host a virtual concert for relief for Texas.  
  83. 2021 Monday J: In Portland, Oregon, federal authorities are reinstalling the fencing around the federal courthouse following Antifa and Black Lives Matter human trash trying to burn it down.  The best way to solve this problem is to give them some lead.  That will solve your problems extremely fast and reinstall law and order for the community.  Next, the judge in the trial of Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd says ‘the timing was poor’ in the award of $27 million to the family of Mr. Floyd before the trial was even underway.  Sounds like IF they convict Officer Chauvin, he will have excellent grounds to overturn the conviction.  We shall see.   Next, two men were arrested in the death of Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick whom many believe was doused with a heavy dose of bear spray and suffered allergic reaction to it.  Next, the FBI says that the Nashville bomber was motivated by paranoia and conspiracy theories and NOT political ideology.  Finally, a Chicago suburb could become the first locale in the United States to award reparations to its black citizens.  What?  Question: was Illinois a slave-holding state?
  84. 2021 Monday K: Washington Post (WAPO) news: first, they admit to MISQUOTING President Donald J. Trump’s conversation with Peach State Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, a conversation in which, the president was seeking help in investigating the myriad election fraud evidence.  No surprise there.  Next, WAPO reports that the Iranians are demanding a guarantee that IF they return to the JCPOA, aka the Iranian nuke deal, that a future president cannot overturn it, like say, Donald Trump wins a third term in 2024.  Speaking of Iran, they cannot prevent themselves from sharing with the world that the IRG- the Iranian Revolutionary Guard now has what they call a ‘missile city’ with which to terrorize the entire region.  We say, “Joe- NUKE THEM NOW.”  Next, Myanmar is declaring martial law in various suburbs around the capital city of Yangon.   Finally, India’s parliament is considering a ban of cryptocurrencies, and should it become law, India will become the first major company to ban this new form of wealth.
  85. 2021 Monday L: Senate Majority Leader strikes a deal to fund almost $3 billion for private schools.  In other news of major import, Pope Francis- much to the horror of the LGBTQIA+ community says the Catholic Church cannot BLESS same-sex marriages.  He says the church can welcome the homo community and be inclusive, but they cannot BLESS their unions.  Of course, the liberal community is going berserk, seeking to CANCEL the Roman Catholic Church.  This is WHY liberals want to rewrite the Bible which is bullshit.  There, we said it, it is what it is, gay community.  You don’t like the Catholic Church, go be a Methodist or some other crackpot faith.   Elsewhere, the state of Alabama gives President Donald J. Trump an award, noting that he is one of the greatest U.S. presidents in history, this as his detractors continue to blast him.  His critics are losers.  Next, in San Diego, California, an out-of-control car careens into nine people killing three of them.  Police have the suspect in custody- is he or she an illegal alien or a terrorist?
  86. 2021 Monday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 119,848,281 confirmed cases, +83,791, 2,653,641, confirmed deaths, +2,063, and 67,895,864 confirmed recoveries, +81,450.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,676,645 confirmed cases, up 42,948 from yesterday’s reporting, 540,452 confirmed deaths, UP 1,534, and 115,489,507 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 211,975 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Note: Joe Biden slams his predecessor’s COVID-19 relief plan and appoints Gene Sperling to manage the $1.9 trillion Xi Jinping Bat Flu plan.  In other healthcare news, Amazon.com Healthcare Services is launching nationwide very soon.  Jeff Bezos will provide healthcare to the American people.  F**k him.
  87. 2021 Monday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,624,371 confirmed cases, 56,580 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 352,355 confirmed cases, 5,183 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Alaska, aka the Last Frontier: currently, they have 60,625 confirmed cases, 306 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 820,913 confirmed cases, 6,030 confirmed deaths, and 786,148 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Netherlands, the country where anything goes: 1,151,218 cases of the old Yellow Fever 2020-2021-style, 16,046 confirmed deaths but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, what’s the point: communist nations ALWAYS lie…
  88. 2021 Monday O: Bob Sellers on Newsmax reports consumer confidence is at its highest point since before the Xi Jinping Bat Flu swept across the world.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,953.46, UP 174.82 points (+0.53%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,459.71, UP 139.843 points (+1.05%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,968.94, UP 25.60 points (+0.65%).  The price of GOLD is $1,729.90 per troy oz., +0.70 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $26.33 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.16%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,217.20 per troy oz, +7.70 (+0.64%) while the price of COPPER is $4.14 per pound, 0.00 (-0.07%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,373.70 per troy oz, +13.00 (+0.55%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.27 per barrel, -0.12 (-0.18%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.66.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Armenian Dram, one greenback equals 525.00.  
  89. 2021 Monday P: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.845 per gallon, $3.552 in Hawaii, and $3.267 in Washington state.  Time to allow the country to return to fracking, there Joe Biden.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,055,145,673,820 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  90. 2021 Monday Q: Debra Haaland becomes the first ever Norwegian-Native American secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior.  Meanwhile, the White House says it might support President Donald J. Trump promoting the Chi-Vi vaccine that his administration made possible.  Elsewhere, Vice President Mike Pence endorses Sarah Huckabee Sanders to become the next governor of Arkansas.   Next, following last night’s disastrous Grammy Awards, people are up in arms over every chick in the show acting like a bunch of streetwalking hos.  Not the kind of stuff people want their daughters watching.  You know, it’s like, ‘daughter, you, too, can grow up to become a slut-bag like Cardi B.  Something for which to work, baby girl.’
  91. 2022 Tuesday:

54. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2022

Following the family of slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick questioning the cause of his death on January 6, 2021- the day of the INFAMOUS Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol and caused mayhem, only Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert asks, ‘where is the intel that shows we still need to surround the Capitol with wire and troops?’ It’s akin to the Democrats making the Capitol into a Green Zone, like the one in Baghdad, Iraq, which is crazy.

Trump.
  68. 2018 Friday: As the ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ scandal continues, Rick Gates- part of Trump’s campaign team- pleads ‘guilty’ to charges of conspiring against the United States and for making false statements after Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his attack dog, lead attorney Andrew Weissman broke his balls, so-to-speak.  People’s lives are being ruined by a bogus, political witch hunt and yet, it grinds on and on.  Enough, already!
  69. 2019 Saturday: Clashes along the Venezuelan border with Colombia lead to two deaths as government officials try to stop humanitarian aid from crossing the borders of the ‘socialist paradise.’  However, as things continue to grow worse in Venezuela, 60 of that country’s National Guard members defect to neighboring Colombia.  Finally- they can get something to eat!  Meanwhile, another thug- Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir declares a national emergency, sacks all state governors, and dismisses the government.  Stay tuned.
  70. 2020 Sunday: As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the world, Italy- a country friendly to the Chi-Coms- reports another 76 cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu which brings the number of cases there up to 155 with one death.  South Korea- also being hammered by the Chinese Virus- reports that 169 people have come down with the virus which brings their total to 602 infected.  The Chi-Vi, however, is not content to infect those countries; no, it’s also infecting Iran which leads Pakistan and Afghanistan to seal their borders with that Chi-Com ally.  Turkey also follows suit especially after it learns that Iran has three deaths within its borders.
  71. 2021 Tuesday: Today is Day 35 of the Biden Regime.  First, we must congratulate Joe Biden.  He has served as president longer than did William Henry Harrison who served just a month before dying from complications from pneumonia.  Congratulations there, Joe, you have made it five weeks as of today.   Next, former CIA Director James Woolsey says that the CIA and former KGB officials agree that the Soviets ordered Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.  Apparently, Oswald, a man who defected to the Soviet Union and then who defected back to the U.S. had hoped that he would be a HERO in the USSR. 
  72. 2021 Tuesday A: Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos is floating the idea of buying the Washington Redskins.  Next, golfer Tiger Woods is airlifted to the hospital following an automobile accident in California.  Initial reports are ‘hopeful.’  Elsewhere, some moronic Democrats in Florida have REFUSED to lower flags to half-mast as ordered by Governor Ron DeSantis in memory of the death of Rush Limbaugh.   Speaking of Florida, a poll within the state shows that Governor DeSantis is far more popular than either Senator Marco Rubio or Senator Rick Scott, both fellow Republicans.   Regarding Mr. Limbaugh, a virtual celebration of his life is in the works so please stick around for further information.
  73. 2021 Tuesday B: Security officials in Washington, D.C. are undergoing questions today as to what happened on January 06, 2021.  Several of the ones being questioned say they had intelligence suggesting that there would be unrest in the nation’s capital on that day.  However, the former House sergeant-at-arms, fired by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi agreed that what was known did not support the request for federal troops.  Big mistake on their part.  Yet, most believe that Speaker Pelosi and perhaps Chuck Schumer banned any federal troops or additional law enforcement on scene because they knew in advance that (allegedly) Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs could work their magic.   Add to this the fact that the District of Columbia police chief expressed shock over NOT calling out the National Guard ahead of time to augment law enforcement.  President Donald J. Trump authorized as many as 10,000 Guard troops to Mayor Muriel “Black Lives Matter” Bowser, but she refused (probably cos Speaker Pelosi ordered her to).
  74. 2021 Tuesday C: Indiana House of Representatives votes to remove license to carry a handgun within the state.  Next, the well-known hate group- the Southern Poverty Law Center- says that over the course of 2020, 160 Confederate monuments and statues were removed.  What a shame.  We must remember our history lest we forget it.   In other news, Dick Morris tells Newsmax that the American Left has terrorized the U.S. Supreme Court into remaining mum on the systemic electoral fraud that occurred on November 03, 2020.  However, Associate Justice Clarence Thomas authored a blistering dissent on the Pennsylvania election fraud case.  We love you, Clarence!   In other news, as the economy begins to falter, Federal Reserve chief Jerome Powell is heading to Capitol Hill today to testify on the U.S. economy. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday D: Illegal Alien News- some states are considering giving illegal aliens in-state tuition in another show of WOKENESS while keeping or raising tuition for in-state citizens and jacking up prices for out-of-state citizens.  Bet they feel really good about giving river swimmers and fence jumpers FREE tuition.   Meanwhile, as holding pens along the border fill up with illegal aliens, resources to care for this invading army are running out.  Boot them out of the country and back into Mexico.  Now.
  76. 2021 Tuesday E: The Department of Justice revives the investigation into George Floyd’s death.  Meanwhile, wimp Judge Merrick Garland continues deflecting questions during his confirmation hearings for U.S. Attorney General.  One thing he does promise is to go after evil white supremacists while black and Latino supremacists can go about their business.   Next, the U.N. confirms Linda Thomas-Greenfield as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. 
  77. 2021 Tuesday F: Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tells Newsmax that it’s a shame to ‘throw away’ the Trump administration’s success with Iran.  Speaking of Iran, the White House (meaning Barack through Kamala) is NOT ruling out using the pope as a go-between with Tehran and the U.S.  Speaking of Iran, Ric Grenell- former director of national intelligence- says there must be a ‘dive into the private negotiations between now climate czar John F. Kerry.’
  78. 2021 Tuesday G: The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says that ‘political divisions’ (in which he had a hand) ‘led to more than half-a-million Chi-Vi deaths in the United States.’  The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci also said today that ‘even vaccinated people should not dine indoors.’  Dr. Fauci, we say this with love: “SHUT THE F**K UP!”  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, Johnson & Johnson announces they should be able to vaccinate 20 million people by the end of March.  Go for it but we won’t be in line, thank you very much.  Elsewhere, a misguided poll suggests ‘that MOST are confident that Joe Biden can get everyone vaccinated and schools reopened.’  Please!   In other healthcare news, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is at Capitol Hill today shagging questions in his confirmation hearings for next head of Health and Human Services.  GOP lawmakers are concerned this ultra-leftist hack has NO experience- other than abortion at all stages- in healthcare.  We concur.  Still, for those of us who live in California, it would be great to get him out of here.  (Note- the libs are wetting their panties because Becerra would be the first Latino to head HHS).  Finally, the Biden team is searching high and searching low to find enough votes to push bigot Neera Tanden into the White House Office of Management and Budget.  We don’t want her!
  79. 2021 Tuesday H: House Democrats are working hard at de-platforming One America News (OAN), Newsmax, and Fox News Channel (although the last one, we are unclear as to WHY seeing as how they are overloaded with liberal, foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats).  They are also attempting to de-platform the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day which is why we are planning to change our format.   Meanwhile, the House Democrats are pushing H.R. 1, the “For the People Act,” a plan with which they plan on taking over the nation’s elections and making them like the mess we experienced last November.  This is not good.  We also learn that the transition from the Trump administration to Joe Biden was among the costliest transitions in U.S. presidential history. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday I: Spicer & Co. on Newsmax are investigating the Democrats’ war on Christianity.  Meanwhile, Google announces that it could soon lift the ban on political advertising, one they imposed on the country for the past several months.   Speaking of politics, failed Senator Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, has established a new voting group- Greater Georgia- with which to counter the dry rot Stacey Abrams- the ‘governor of the Peach State’- has embedded in the state.   Speaking of Georgia senators, another failed GOP Senator David Perdue says he WON’T be running in 2022 to get his seat back.  Loser.  
  81. 2021 Tuesday J: Coca-Cola, Nike, and Apple are lobbying to have a bill that prevents them from using Uighur Muslim slave labor in Xinjiang, communist China, softened or tossed so they can continue using slave labor to make their goods.  Coca-Cola also is encouraging its white workers not to be so white.  Does this mean that white workers can use CPT?  If so, that would be awesome!  Otherwise, stuff your wokeness where the sun don’t shine, Coke.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is going to host a virtual summit with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau so they can discuss what the nations share in common- climate change- and what they don’t- the Keystone XL pipeline that our northern neighbor wants to get back on track.  (This means Kooky Kamala will be the one doing the hosting).  In other exciting news, California is close to having 1.5 million VALIDATED signatures in the recall effort of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, an effort in which, Republicans, Democrats, and independents have all participated.  We want to get rid of this POS.  NOW!  (We have until March 17 to finish collecting and validating signatures).
  82. 2021 Tuesday K: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 112,072,132 confirmed cases, +374,686, 2,843,413, confirmed deaths, +10,328, and 63,217,963 confirmed recoveries, +243,313.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,526,532 confirmed cases, up 70,899 from yesterday’s reporting, 507,469 confirmed deaths, UP 2,310, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least four-plus weeks now (this number no longer even shows up).  This tells us the Biden administration no longer wants them reported.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 176,721 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the lab-engineered Panda Pandemic, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass playing pattycake with your grandchildren and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  83. 2021 Tuesday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,537,371 confirmed cases, 49,593 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 338,342 confirmed cases, 4,924 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Colorado: currently, they have 424,097 confirmed cases, 5,990 confirmed deaths but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Amazing how very few states in the country report their recovery numbers.  Ask yourselves, WHY?  What purpose does it serve to provide case numbers, numbers of fatalities but nary a number of folks who have beat this vile Chi-Com virus.  What’s up with that?
  84. 2021 Tuesday M: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 759,572 confirmed cases, 5,634 confirmed deaths, and 712,555 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- Argentina: they have 2,077,175 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 51,510 confirmed deaths, and NO 1,877,860 confirmed recoveries.   We will say this: the primary purpose of the Chi-Vi was to remove the threat of Trump- the Chi-Coms accomplished that goal.  The secondary goal (or so we believe) is to ‘cleanse the world’ of the old, the infirm, the sick, and the mentally disabled.  Anyone else who died from this Wuhan Institute of Virology lab-engineered virus is just collateral damage.  Shame on the Chi-Coms!  Time to take their criminal asses to the Hague and put them on trial.
  85. 2021 Tuesday N:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,537.35 UP 15.66 points (+0.05%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,465.20, DOWN 67.85 points (-0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,881.37, UP 4.87 points (+0.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,810.30 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $27.94 per troy ounce, +0.25 (+0.91%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,264.10 per troy oz, +24.40 (+1.97%) while the price of COPPER is $4.22 per pound, +0.04 (+0.91%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,344.70 per troy oz, -58.20 (-2.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.24 per barrel, -0.43 (-0.70%). 
  86. 2021 Tuesday O: Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000020.   In other economic news, consumer confidence has grown for a second straight month in a row with the index rising to 91.3 from 88.9 in January.  Consumer spending is about 70-percent of the U.S. economy. 
  87. 2021 Tuesday P: A federal judge orders the wife of Mexican cartel thug Joaquim Guzmán, aka El Chapo, to remain in custody following her arrest yesterday.  A federal prosecutor says that Emma Coronel Aispuro ‘worked closely with the command-and-control structure of her husband’s Sinaloa cartel to distribute cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth, heroin, and other illicit narcotics and drugs into the United States. 
  88. 2021 Tuesday Q: Elsewhere, Iranian state TV reports Tehran has officially begun restricting international inspections of its nuclear facilities.  The move is seen as a bid to pressure European leaders and the ‘Biden administration’ to lift all Trump-imposed sanctions.  They want to return to the JCPOA and the ‘Biden administration’ wants to return to the JCPOA so we believe the sanctions will be lifted without the West getting anything in return for their misguided confidence.  
  89. 2021 Tuesday R: Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, aka “BoJo,” recognizes the ‘deep ethical and moral’ implications and complications of urging the G 7 nations to commence using a COVID-19 passport for citizens to enter one another’s countries.  The UK could push for a ‘vaccine passport’ system throughout the continent once the G 7 nations establish this bulls**t.   This is where we are heading, thanks to the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci who has said, ‘masks don’t work,’ then ‘masks do work,’ ‘goggles might be necessary’ (he forgot earmuffs), then ‘several masks work’ and then ‘we might need to wear masks through 2022,’ and finally, ‘even with vaccines, we still cannot dine indoors.’  WHAT THE F**K?  This is what is destroying the planet. 
  90. 2021 Tuesday S: Five members of the ERCOT Board in Texas resign following their disastrous ‘non-handling’ of the power crisis over the past couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, an amazing legal scholar, says that two House Democrats want to establish ‘red channels’ with which to use counter-McCarthyism by banning Fox News, One America News Network, and Newsmax.   Give the leftists an inch and the leftists will grab miles.  With Rush Limbaugh dead, conservative talk radio, television, and blogs under attack (like ours), the liberals are launching a massive offensive to silence ALL of us.   In other crazy news, Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, says, ‘if Donald Trump runs in 2024, he’ll win the GOP nomination.’
  91. 2021 Tuesday T: Following the family of slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick questioning the cause of his death on January 6, 2021- the day of the INFAMOUS Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol and caused mayhem, only Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert asks, ‘where is the intel that shows we still need to surround the Capitol with wire and troops?’  It’s akin to the Democrats making the Capitol into a Green Zone, like the one in Baghdad, Iraq, which is crazy.  It tells us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM the Democrats intrinsically KNOW they stole the 2020 Presidential Election (as well as Senate races in Georgia, Michigan, and perhaps even Colorado) and fear the wrath of the American people.  WE KNOW WHAT YOU DID, DEMOCRATS… In other news, White House reporters question Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki as to ‘WHY we have NEW cages, what appears to be Quonset hut holding pens, for illegal alien brats.’  This is criminal and yet the Dems are NOT moaning and screaming about it.
  92. 2021 Tuesday U: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1636 with $22 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 09, 20, 57, and Mega 15.  The highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $194,546.  The winning ticket was sold at the Westside Market in Santa Barbara, CA 93101.
  93. 2022 Wednesday: Here we are, another day living under the extremely corrupt Biden regime.  God, please save our nation and save my family.  NOW.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UMC- the label owning the Richard and Linda Thompson catalog- compiled an 8-CD box set featuring EVERYTHING the duo recorded over the course of a decade.  “Hard Luck Stories 1972-1982” came out on August 01, 2020, and contained so much music that it would require the good portion of a day to listen to all it.  Thank God record companies are willing to do the work of the people by compiling everything from within the vaults, putting it an attractive package, and providing all sorts of extras because without them and their efforts, fans would be oblivious to the music of their favorite artists.  We hope everyone will rush out and check out this glorious package as we think fans of the man and his then-wife will enjoy it as much as we do.  Look for it now.

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 269

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

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

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

  1. 2022 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 421,926,659 confirmed cases, +1,935,290, 5,891,718 confirmed deaths, +11,171 and 346,321,278 confirmed recoveries, +2,449,746. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 80,014,390 confirmed cases, UP 98,656 from yesterday’s reporting, 958,115 confirmed deaths, UP +2,618,[i] and 51,370,553 confirmed recoveries, UP 351,238 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 508,731 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 145,479 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 394 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 8,880,750 confirmed cases, 83,910 confirmed deaths, and 8,870,922 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,819,172 confirmed cases, 68,579 confirmed deaths, and 3,792,613 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 233,640 confirmed cases, 1,292 confirmed deaths, and 232,348 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,410,658 confirmed cases, 11,615 confirmed deaths, and 1,399,285 confirmed recoveries (lazy bastards- it’s still mostly the weekend for this backward state).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., New Hampshire: they have 293,697 confirmed cases, 2,333 confirmed deaths, and 288,281 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,523,464 confirmed cases, 9,828 confirmed deaths, and 3,361,225 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Tanzania, 155th place on the list: 33,549 cases of the virus, 796 confirmed death and 32,753 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,079.18, DOWN 232.85 points (-0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,548.07 DOWN 168.65 points (-1.23%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,348.87, DOWN 31.39 points (-0.72%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $91.66 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.11%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.80 per troy oz., -1.20 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $23.95 per troy ounce, +0.07 (+0.31%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,069.50 per troy oz, -23.20 (-2.12%) while the price of COPPER is $4.51 per pound, -0.01 (-0.20%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,315.42 per troy oz., -50.91 (-2.15%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,200.00 per troy oz., +100.00 (+0.55%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,510,000.00 per CNY/T, +25,000,000.00 (+1.68%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,298.00 per USD/T, +30.00 (+0.92%). The price of ZINC is $3,603.00 per USD/T., -3.00 (-0.08%).   The price of COCOA is $2,571.00 per USD/T, -18.00 (-0.70%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,265.10 USD 1,000 board feet -25.30 (-1.96%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.33 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.29.    In Japanese Yen, one greenback equals 115.00 and in Jordanian Dinar, a buck equals 0.71 and in Kazakhstani Tenge, one dollar equals 428.08 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.728 per gallon, $3.506 in Florida, $4.503 in Hawaii, and $3.973 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Delaware- $3.573.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 129th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Uruguay: $6.453 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,136,116,395,744 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after United Kingdom the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland which holds $318,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine are evacuating civilians- mostly women, children, and seniors- from the region into Russia.  Global observers see this as yet another sign of impending war which Joe Biden said again this afternoon- with a glazed look in his dead eyes- is coming and coming soon.  Stop it, Joe, stop it, stop with banging the war drums.  Everyone knows you are craving a distraction, any distraction with which to save your crumbling illegitimate presidency.  We expect Uncle Joe is telling Volodymyr Zelensky to engineer a false flag operation that will draw the Russians across the border so Uncle Joe can then declare martial law here because of the war and to freeze the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.
  8. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- United States UN Ambassador Linda Greenfield-Thomas says that ‘observations point to a Russian invasion of Ukraine in coming days.   Next, the Biden regime says that ‘Russia hacked into Ukraine’s banking system.’  The head of the regime- senile Joe Biden- says he’s convinced that Vladimir Putin has decided to invade Ukraine.  Again, stop it, Joe, enough already.  IF Putin does invade the Ukraine, it’s because you, him, and Volodymyr Zelensky have all conspired to engineer this ‘wag the dog’ scenario as each one of you believes he can achieve something out of the chaos.  Joe Biden says booting Russia from the SWIFT banking system is unlikely in the opening round of sanctions the Bidenistas want to slap on the Russkies.
  9. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The globally celebrated U.S. ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been on the job for 322 days now.  She is visiting the border, although it’s not ours but that of Eastern Europe.  She has not visited the U.S. border in 236 days.  Here are the stats regarding the illegal alien invasion.  First, here’s the cost of caring for the illegals for the past 49 days: $306,480,300.00.  Shocking.  Next, here’s the cost of caring for the illegals now for the past 414 days: $41,953,776,7619.  Next, here is the estimated number of illegals who have swarmed across the southern border since January 01, 2022: 405,742.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals roaming the land: 42,650,006.  We at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day genuinely believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-100 million illegals which is an incredibly depressing number.  Let’s round them up, force them to work off the costs of Uncle Sam caring for them, and then after 25 years’ hard labor per illegal, deport them back to whence the f**k they came.  Customs and Border Protection is now warning its agents of possible assassination attempts by Mexican drug cartel sicarios.
  10. 2022 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I- In Canada, federal law enforcement is arresting members of the FREEDOM TRUCKERS CONVOY and also is in the process of freezing bank accounts, confiscating private property, grabbing kids, pets, anything of value or of emotional importance to the peaceful protesters so as to crush the brave souls demanding freedom from their totalitarian government.   Speaking of this travesty, U.S. Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large congressional district, says the ‘freezing of donor accounts is deeply disturbing.’  Begin an investigation.
  11. 2022 Friday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $48.50 (2) AstraZeneca: $59.86 (3) Merck & Company: $76.33 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $163.35 (5) Novavax: $81.89 (6) BioNTech: $156.94 (7) Moderna: $145.74.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Pfizer: $50.78 (2) AstraZeneca: $58.04 (3) Merck & Company: $76.64 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $161.71 (5) Novavax: $90.44 (6) BioNTech: $170.95 (7) Moderna: $161.32.
  12. 2022 Friday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $93.36 (2) General Dynamics: $215.70 (3) Boeing: $209.00 (4) Lockheed Martin: $386.53 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $391.27.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Raytheon: $95.27 (2) General Dynamics: $231.76 (3) Boeing: $212.30 (4) Lockheed Martin: $396.19 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $399.32.
  13. 2022 Friday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $18.14 (2) DuPont: $78.75 (3) Honeywell: $182.13 (4) 3M: $147.61 (5) Teijen: $12.20.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.55 (2) DuPont: $79.28 (3) Honeywell: $186.99 (4) 3M: $159.54 (5) Teijen: $1,423.00.
  14. 2022 Friday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $66.07 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $32.31 (3) Beyond Meat: $52.33.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $63.85 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $32.05 (3) Beyond Meat: $59.87.
  15. 2022 Friday O: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $138.00 (2) Lowe’s: $222.69 (3) Home Depot: $346.60 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $512.67 (5) Amazon: $3,052.03.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Wal-Mart: $135.33 (2) Lowe’s: $225.96 (3) Home Depot: $350.29 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $509.67 (5) Amazon: $3,065.87.
  16. 2022 Friday P: President Donald J. Trump News- President Donald J. Trump blasted lunatic Empire State Attorney General Letitia James’ insane investigation into all-things Donald J. Trump and Trump Family as being a travesty of justice as well as a witch hunt.  Next, the National Archives says that some of the documents it seized at the 45th president’s Mar-a-Lago estate were ‘classified.’  Ooh, the Deep State is ginning up yet another fraudulent investigation into the rightful president.
  17. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I- Approximately 45 GOP senators have sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland demanding he do everything imaginable to protect and to continue funding the probe headed by special counsel, John Durham.  The more information unfriendly to the Bidenistas hits the news, the less likely the Biden regime will allow it to reach the finish line.  Meanwhile, the Biden White House rebukes Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s visit to Moscow as a ‘show of solidarity.’  Wasn’t Mr. Bolsonaro in Donald J. Trump’s camp? 
  18. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II- Next, progressives in the federal government are attempting to push Joe Biden away from considering Judge Michelle Childs as the replacement for retiring U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.   In other news, Joe Biden signed a stopgap measure to keep the federal government up and running into mid-March.  How about a flipping budget already?   Meanwhile, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy says he’s ‘tested positive for the Chi-Vi.’  Get well soon, Mr. Surgeon General.
  19. 2022 Friday S: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- A U.S. judge has ordered the founder of the Oath Keepers imprisoned ahead of his trial for ‘sedition.’  (Note- the regime is copying what President Abraham Lincoln did during the Civil War in his fight to keep the Union together.  Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi aren’t ‘Abraham Lincoln.’  Another judge says that the January 6 political prisoners deserve credit for cooperation.   Next, a judge rejects President Donald J. Trump’s attempt to toss the January 06, 2021, incitement suit lodged against him but excuses Donald J. Trump Jr. and “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani. 
  20. 2022 Friday T: Special Counsel John Durham’s Probe: After Hillary Clinton’s attorney Michael Sussman began crying about the probe targeting him as one of the key go-betweens between Hillary Rodham Clinton and the creators of the phony Trump-Russia collusion scam by calling it, ‘political,’ the special counsel himself said he ‘never sought to politicize the investigation.’
  21. 2022 Friday U: Political News I- Senator Susan Collins, RINO-MN, says the ‘peaceful transfer of power is essential.’  She, of course, blames President Donald J. Trump for January 06, 2021, rather than the true culprits, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser, and various minions working within the Deep State.   Meanwhile, as Joe Biden’s support among Latino voters grows by the day, Republicans are seeking to capitalize on the ‘46th president’s’ self-inflicted loss. 
  22. 2022 Friday V: Political News II- Following the recall of three ultra-leftist goobers on the San Francisco schoolboard, the ousted president labeled it yet another example of- wait for it- get this- WHITE SUPREMACISM.  Wow.  Don’t you just hate that when it happens?  (It’s so much cow crap).    In other news, Maureen Steele told Newsmax that thousands are expected for the growing U.S. TRUCKER FREEDOM CONVOY preparing to set off next week.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump is going to host a fund-raising event with Congressman Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, who is seeking to win the state’s U.S. Senate seat, the one from which, Senator Richard Shelby, RINO, is retiring.
  23. 2022 Friday W: U.S. Senate News I- The U.S. Senate confirms Christi A. Grimm to become the top watchdog at Health and Human Services, a $1.6 trillion department that oversees fraud, waste, and other chicaneries occurring within or about this very important agency.  It’s interesting to note that President Donald J. Trump at one time assailed Ms. Grimm.
  24. 2022 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News- Former Minnesota Police Officer Kim Potter receives a sentence of two years in prison and a $1,000 fine in the wrongful death of fleeing thug, Daunte Wright.   Next, New York City law enforcement is going to remove the homeless from the city’s subway system.  About flipping time.
  25. 2022 Friday Y: Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award Updates- By unanimous agreement, the first addition to this year’s running for the Fifth Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award is Canada’s fledgling dictator, Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau.  This man deserves to win the award this year, the one in which, we laughingly select someone via the votes of the chef-authors here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM as well as from the votes of our associated family members, friends, neighbors, employees, vendors, and delivery specialists.  The winner hilariously qualifies to be dragged down into the bowels of the infamous KGB prison in Moscow, the Lubyanka, where they get the Lavrentiy Beria ‘treatment,’ i.e., a fictitious bullet in the head as the former KGB chief used to personally dish out.  Of course, we never promote violence of any type, it’s just a humorous award based upon the history of the USSR.  There are three runner-up prizes- the Nadaraia and Sarkisian Award, the Red Banner Idols Award, and the Beijing Bat Bug Award (which is the ‘booby prize’), but we think “Little Xi” is going to be the big winner this year.
  26. 2022 Friday Z: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1739 what with a $64 million jackpot on the line: 06, 11, 50, 63, 68, and Mega 17.   Out of 54,847 winning tickets, the highest winners were 32 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $524 apiece.

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

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

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

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

TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY…

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

  1. 2022 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 419,991,369 confirmed cases, +2,069,387, 5,880,547 confirmed deaths, +13,076 and 343,871,532 confirmed recoveries, +2,670,207. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 79,915,734 confirmed cases, UP 143,441 from yesterday’s reporting, 955,497 confirmed deaths, UP +3,453,[i] and 51,019,315 confirmed recoveries, UP 295,823 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 506,113 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 142,861 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 393 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 8,874,746 confirmed cases, 83,786 confirmed deaths, and 8,790,960 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,813,847 confirmed cases, 68,572 confirmed deaths, and 3,777,713 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 233,155 confirmed cases, 1,290 confirmed deaths, and 231,865 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,410,658 confirmed cases, 11,522 confirmed deaths, and 1,399,285 confirmed recoveries (lazy bastards- it’s still mostly the weekend for this backward state).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Rhode Island: they have 353,776 confirmed cases, 3,397 confirmed deaths, and 350,379 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,508,222 confirmed cases, 9,768 confirmed deaths, and 3,329,589 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Aruba, 154th place on the list: 33,568 cases of the virus, 198 confirmed death and 33,291 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,312.03, DOWN 622.24 points (-1.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,716.72 DOWN 407.38 points (-2.88%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,380.26, DOWN 94.75 points (-2.12%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $91.29 per barrel, -0.33 (-0.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,902.10 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $23.85 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.13%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,099.20 per troy oz, +6.50 (+0.59%) while the price of COPPER is $4.50 per pound, -0.02 (-0.41%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,381.24 per troy oz., +14.91 (+0.63%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,100.00 per troy oz., -250.00 (-1.36%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,510,000.00 per CNY/T, +25,000,000.00 (+1.68%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,302.00 per USD/T, +46.00 (+1.41%). The price of ZINC is $3,643.00 per USD/T., +59.00 (+1.65%).   The price of COCOA is $2,589.00 per USD/T, -22.00 (-0.84%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,294.00 USD 1,000 board feet -26.40 (-2.00%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.34 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.88 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.31.    In Iranian Rial, one greenback equals 42,000.00 and in Iraqi Dinar, a buck equals 1,458.52 and in Jamaican Dollar, one dollar equals 155.64 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.725 per gallon, $3.508 in Florida, $4.503 in Hawaii, and $3.969 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: District of Columbia- $3.729.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the 128th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Czech Republic: $6.443 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,134,065,393,370 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after communist China the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom which holds $440,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Strange things are occurring in eastern Ukraine.  A kindergarten was hit by a shell supposedly fired by the Russians.  It put a hole in the wall but injured no one.  We are beginning to believe that much of what we are seeing is political theater.  We believe that both Ukraine and Russia are trying to engineer a conflict that will suck in demented Joe Biden which will continue the degradation of the United States.  We are almost beginning to believe that Russia and Ukraine are acting in concert together to make it appear that a war is in the offing which is drawing ALL attention to an insignificant region of the world which will allow the Chi-Coms to launch the assault on Taiwan.   Anyhow, as the political theater continues, Russia expels the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow.  Meanwhile, the U.N. Security Council supports ‘dialogue,’ but Moscow won’t provide guarantees of NO INVASION of Ukraine.   Finally, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken says that ‘Russia is going to invade Ukraine in coming days.’  Anthony, we simply no longer believe it.  Nope, no way, nada, no, it’s not going to happen.
  8. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Today marks the 321st day since a vacant Joe Biden put “Kooky Kamala” Harris in control of the border fiasco and Day No. 235 since she arrived to do a phot op.  Now, she’s over hobnobbing in Europe trying to halt the ‘pending Russian invasion of Ukraine.’  We shall see what happens.  Okay, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 48 days is $300,225,600.  The cost of caring for the illegal aliens the past 413 days is $41,947,522,019.  Next, the number of illegals who have swarmed across the border the past 48 days stands around 392,425.  As for the estimated number of illegals currently living in the United States, the conservative low number of illegals is 42,636,059 whereas we suspect the number is closer to 85-to-100 million illegal aliens.   No wonder the United States is dying.
  9. 2022 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Now that Canadian dictator Justin Trudeau has given federal law enforcement the go-ahead to crack down, the fuzz are moving among the truckers snatching their kids and pets, handing out citations, and ordering them to stand down and vacate the occupied areas.  However, the truckers are standing firm which is why the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day SUPPORTS THE TRUCKERS, WE SUPPORT ALL TRUCKERS!  The truckers are not backing down.  Once the lower ranks of law enforcement and Canadian military join the ranks of the truckers and join in the ‘storming of the Bastille,’ so-to-speak, Justin Trudeau will have to seek asylum in communist China.  The Canadian PM is labeling his opponents NAZIS, even Jewish ones.  F**k him.  Trudeau is going full-blown Nicolae Ceausescu.
  10. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II- Speaking of the mess in Canada, Quebec- a province that might try to secede from the crumbling Canadian union if things don’t improve there and soon- has revealed its multi-phase plan with which to end ALL COVID-19 restrictions and mandates.  Remember: yesterday, Quebec joined with several other provinces and said they won’t adhere to Justin Trudeau’s illegal orders.   In other regions of the world, law enforcement in New Zealand continues trying to crush nonviolent, peaceful, anti-vax and anti-mask mandate citizens who have clogged their streets.  The government is nonplussed in its attempt to break up protesters who won’t abandon the streets to their fascist government.
  11. 2022 Thursday J: Foreign News-Overseas News III- As inflation hammers the European Union, citizens of France are having to find ways with which, they can continue living their lives all the while prices for everything continue skyrocketing.   Next, Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame says he and his company will once again try to find another avenue by which they can get pillows to the Canadian truckers who are living in their truck’s sleeping quarters.  Yesterday, Lindell tried to bring in a massive load of bedding and pillows and the Canuck government stopped them at the border.  In protest of Canada’s harsh, illegal measures, protesters have gathered in the thousands outside the Canadian embassy in New York City to protest the fascist goings-on of Ottawa in its war against its own people.
  12. 2022 Thursday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $48.91 (2) AstraZeneca: $60.99 (3) Merck & Company: $76.36 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $166.15 (5) Novavax: $83.44 (6) BioNTech: $157.36 (7) Moderna: $146.36.  The CEO of Pfizer says the pandemic is almost over and that the next strain to hit the world most likely will be weaker than the Omicron variant.
  13. 2022 Thursday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $94.36 (2) General Dynamics: $214.40 (3) Boeing: $213.56 (4) Lockheed Martin: $388.77 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $397.88.
  14. 2022 Thursday M: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $26.55 (2) DuPont: $79.73 (3) Honeywell: $184.59 (4) 3M: $148.63 (5) Teijen: $1,421.00.
  15. 2022 Thursday N: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.84 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $32.32 (3) Beyond Meat: $56.21.
  16. 2022 Thursday O: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $138.93 (2) Lowe’s: $223.79 (3) Home Depot: $347.77 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $515.01 (5) Amazon: $3,093.05
  17. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I- The U.S. Department of Justice is suing the state of Missouri over new laws that limit federal firearms seizures.   Next, ‘red on the head like the dick on a dog mob mouthpiece’ Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that ‘Joe Biden won’t be swayed by political pressure in finding the replacement for outgoing U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer.’  We have already heard and have reported that despite what the regime says about Joe ‘working really hard to narrow down his potential nominees,’ that he has done NOTHING.  He has not looked at one potential nominee which means he is sitting down in the basement of the White House pulling a Toobin while he watches reruns of ‘Columbo.’  What a national embarrassment, what a national disgrace. 
  18. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II- Thumping its chest like the regime does daily, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland says the DOJ is going to pursue those getting fat off the supply chain crisis.  We bet they won’t go after the vaccine-makers who are making massive amounts of cash.  Go after them first, for Christ’s sake.  Oh, wait, they are sending massive donations to political campaigns of elected Democrats and RINO Republicans.
  19. 2022 Thursday R: Political News I- Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, has motioned that he may hold up the Ukraine support resolution.   Next, Congressman Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, said it might be beneficial if President Donald J. Trump would stop harping on the 2020 Presidential Election.  Say what, Congressman Carter?   Moving on, Congressman Chris Stewart, R-UT 2nd congressional district, says ‘threatening to arm the resistance in Ukraine might halt Vladimir Putin’s ‘impending’ invasion.   Meanwhile, House Republicans are standing strong against the Democrats’ insane push to get rid of the debt ceiling so they can continue borrowing money from the Chi-Coms and then continuing to spend it.  This is insane, the Democrats must be scooped up and sent to insane asylums around the country for immediate treatment.   (When the GOP reclaims power, they must cancel all debts owed to the Chi-Coms as payback for inflicting the Chi-Vi on the entire world).
  20. 2022 Thursday S: Political News II- Organizers of the U.S. Trucker Freedom Convoy say the trucks will commence rolling next Wednesday.  Excellent.  Where can we send money that won’t be snatched by the feds?   Next, under “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ leadership, Florida is pushing a bill through that will put $70 million in grants with which to bring fathers together with their kids or to provide mentors with which to help fatherless children.  This is amazing and once again, Democrats are going all apoplectic over the idea that someone thinks kids having fathers is a BAD THING.  It’s not, it’s great.
  21. 2022 Thursday T: Political News III- In California, approval ratings for big dog Democrats like “Kooky Kamala” Harris- Willie Brown’s long-time paramour which is why she has risen all the way from NOTHING to the ‘vice president of the United States- and doddering Senator Diane “Di-Fi” Feinstein have dropped to low, low approval ratings.  Astute political observers can smell the change in the air and it’s highly possible that Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom may not survive his re-election bid.   In other political news, after U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd congressional district, remained mum on whether he supported Congresswoman “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large District, President Donald J. Trump leveled some much-deserved criticism at the RINO Republican.  This led to the possible House speaker’s support of “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney’s opponent, Harriet Hageman, after he endorsed Cheney earlier.  Whoa.
  22. 2022 Thursday U: Political News IV- In other political news, as Democrats continue the scramble to shift the focus on the highly damaging John Durham report- one that is rapidly gathering steam- Republicans say they have ‘full confidence in the proceedings.’  Meanwhile, in the Empire State, an especially haggard-looking Hillary Rodham Clinton addressed the New York State Democratic Party Convention and laughed off the growing amount of evidence that shows beyond the shadow of a doubt that this corrupt, self-enriching political hack bears FULL RESPONSIBILITY for the sham, Trump-Russia collusion scam.   (Note- Hillary, you’ve got plenty of money, get a f**king face lift, you angry old bag).  Hilariously enough, outside the event, Hillary was met by a jeering crowd of several thousand people.  Good for them.  Add to this the fact that Congressman Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, says that ‘Hillary Clinton should face a Department of Justice and an FBI investigation for her criminal activities.’
  23. 2022 Thursday V: Political News V- In a new poll, approval ratings for Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser have dropped 9 points in an extremely fleeting time.  Perhaps this is why the political hack is loosening the grip on the harsh COVID-19 measures that have kept the city in virtual lockdown for nearly two years?   In other political news related to the preceding section, famed legal scholar, attorney, and Constitutional scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax there’s ‘probable cause’ the Hillary Clinton campaign was involved in ‘dirty politics.’  Finally, President Donald J. Trump has endorsed Congresswoman Monica De La Cruz Hernandez, R-TX 15th congressional district, for another term in November.
  24. 2022 Thursday W: Political News VI- Senator Jon Thune, R-SD, said that ‘Joe Biden and NOT Vladimir Putin is responsible for skyrocketing gasoline prices.’   Next, once again, a stumbling old Joe Biden says what has now become a daily mantra for him: ‘every indication exists that Russia is preparing to invade Ukraine.’  So, the f**k what, Joe?  It’s not our problem other than that YOU and YOUR FAMILY are going to grow fat off the munitions sold to Kyiv as you do from everything else.  The old-time Mafiosi must be jealous.
  25. 2022 Thursday X: U.S. Senate News I- The U.S. Senate fails to pass the continuing resolution which will ban the funding of federal vaccine mandates.   Next, the U.S. Senate sent a bill to Joe Biden’s desk with which to avert an impending shutdown of the federal government.
  26. 2022 Thursday Y: Federal and State Court News- A court filing shows that 46,000 illegal aliens were released around the United States in January 2022.  In other court-related news, Hillary Clinton’s paid hack lawyer Michael Sussman is begging the courts to dismiss the charges levied against him by Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into Democratic Party-RINO-Canadian-Chi-Com Collusion in the 2020 Presidential Election.   In other court related news, a judge has agreed not to make the autopsy reports on Bob Saget available to the public which means he most likely was up to no good when he died (or was murdered).
  27. 2022 Thursday Z: Lawsuit and Legal News- After GiveSendGo was hacked by unknowns that released information on those who gave donations to Canada’s FREEDOM TRUCKERS, the Christian crowd-funding site is demanding both the Department of Justice and the FBI- aka the Joestapo- launch investigations into how this crime was committed and who did it.  Amazingly enough, even Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, said that ‘exposing small donors to the truckers was unconscionable.’  (She must be losing her re-election bid).    Meanwhile, a judge in New York says that President Donald J. Trump must testify before some sham fishing expedition launched by the Democrats in that extremely corrupt state.

DAY THREE HUNDRED-AND-NINETY OF THE BIDEN REGIME

45. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY,  FEBRUARY 14, 2022, UPDATE A:

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

Presidents’ Day, Daisy Gatson Bates Day (Arkansas), Valentine’s Day, and Statehood Day in Arizona

We folks of German-Austrian descent[i] know totalitarianism when we see totalitarianism and what we are seeing north of the border in Canada is shocking totalitarianism.   The people up there are conducting a NONVIOLENT PROTEST and the government is preparing a Tiananmen Square-style reception for them as my fellow colleagues have said…

  1. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 413,594,676 confirmed cases, +1,336,277, 5,841,297 confirmed deaths, +7,000 and 335,216,757 confirmed recoveries, +2,396,713. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 79,409,422 confirmed cases, UP 83,846 from yesterday’s reporting, 944,446 confirmed deaths, UP +1,035,[ii] and 50,012,407 confirmed recoveries, UP 175,514 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[iii]    
  2. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 495,062 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 131,810 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 390 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 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: 8,802,992 confirmed cases, 82,877 confirmed deaths, and 8,720,115 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,795,041 confirmed cases, 67,910 confirmed deaths, and 3,736,783 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 232,008 confirmed cases, 1,262 confirmed deaths, and 230,746 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,410,658 confirmed cases, 11,373 confirmed deaths, and 1,399,285 confirmed recoveries (lazy bastards- it’s the weekend).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., West Virginia: they have 476,957 confirmed cases, 6,023 confirmed deaths, and 463,672 confirmed recoveries.[iv]   
  4. 2022 Monday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,446,250 confirmed cases, 9,624 confirmed deaths, and 3,217,575 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Togo, 150th place on the list: 36,660 cases of the virus, 271 confirmed death and 35,145 confirmed recoveries.[v]  Regarding Togo, is it NOT AMAZING how countries that use hydroxychloroquine to combat malaria have very few deaths and amazing recovery rates?  Just saying.                       
  5. 2022 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,566.17, DOWN 171.89 points (-0.49%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,790.92 DOWN 0.23 points (-0.002%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,401.67, DOWN 16.97 points (-0.38%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $94.87 per barrel, +1.77 (+1.89%).  The price of GOLD is $1,872.30 per troy oz., +30.20 (+1.64%) while the price of SILVER is $23.89 per troy ounce, +0.52 (+2.23%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,028.90 per troy oz, +14.00 (-1.34%) while the price of COPPER is $4.49 per pound, -0.01 (-0.28%).[vi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,361.00 per troy oz., +54.10 (+2.35%).

  6. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.702 per gallon, $3.454 in Florida, $4.460 in Hawaii, and $3.957 in Washington state.[ix]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Arizona- $3.659.  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 125th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Belize: $6.319 per U.S. Gallon.[x]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,032,305,669,440 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xi]  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 ALL OTHERS holds $215,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Monday F: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- a politician who is witnessing a historic drop in polling for any PM in the history of the country- is invoking federal powers which means he is going to send the military into the streets to break up the freedom protests and to lock the truckers up, all the while confiscating their trucks.  We have said this from the start and will say it again, this loser- one supported by slobbering Joe Biden- is going to launch his own Tiananmen Square-style massacre of freedom-loving Canadians because authoritarians such as he know nothing else.  This man has not offered to meet with the truckers, and we suspect by the time everything is over, he will end up like Nicolae Ceausescu.  If you don’t know the references, look them up.
  8. 2022 Monday G: Foreign News-Overseas News II- One-hundred-and-thirty-thousand Russians are lining up on the borders of Ukraine, a nation with 44 million inhabitants, most of whom remember Russian transgressions against them and who hate Russians with all their might.  We suspect that if Russia does invade Ukraine, it will fare worse than George W. Bush’s illegal invasion of Iraq.  Still, Russian TV propagandists continue spinning reasons for Putin to give the signal to invade this Wednesday.   Kyiv is seeking a dialogue with the Russians and the Russkies have offered the world a glimmer of hope by saying ‘talks might be possible.’  Russia has made the announcement that should any foreign vessels intrude in their waters, they might light them up as is their prerogative.
  9. 2022 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News III- ‘Unknown Western sources’ (which means the Biden regime) claims ‘Russian mercenaries with espionage abilities are spreading across the Ukraine preparatory to Wednesday’s invasion (which the Germans claim to be true).  It is interesting to note that as the Canadian government launches its crackdown of its citizens by announcing the totalitarian measures aimed at seizing property, bank accounts, private property, and putting pro-freedom citizens into its burgeoning system of gulags, the Canucks are sending billions to support the authoritarian regime in Ukraine.  Again, we believe that once the citizens of Canada resist, law enforcement and military will gravitate towards the people and will then storm the Bastille, so-to-speak.  Be incredibly careful, Prime Minister Trudeau.  You know what happens to those who proudly proclaim, “Let them eat cake” in so many words…[xii]
  10. 2022 Monday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News- Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser, DS-Washington, D.C., says vaccine passports for indoor dining and shopping will end tomorrow and that vaccine mandates will also end.  She must be wetting her panties in fear of being toppled.  Mask mandates will end sometime next month.  Meanwhile, leftists to the left of Governor “Slimy Phil” Murphy, DS-NJ, are slamming his decision to end mask mandates in his state.
  11. 2022 Monday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $49.83 (2) AstraZeneca: $57.54 (3) Merck & Company: $76.47 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $165.57 (5) Novavax: $80.11 (6) BioNTech: $154.53 (7) Moderna: $142.47.
  12. 2022 Monday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $93.58 (2) General Dynamics: $211.16 (3) Boeing: $210.05 (4) Lockheed Martin: $386.82 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $390.60.
  13. 2022 Monday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.76 (2) DuPont: $79.32 (3) Honeywell: $186.69 (4) 3M: $158.01 (5) Teijen: $1,408.00.
  14. 2022 Monday M: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.75 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $25.17 (3) Beyond Meat: $58.13.
  15. 2022 Monday N: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $139.95 (2) Lowe’s: $226.05 (3) Home Depot: $351.49 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $506.56 (5) Amazon: $3,103.34.
  16. 2022 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News I- The Biden regime says it ‘sees no signs of Russian drawdown along the borders between that nation and Ukraine which tells us Joe Biden wants a war.  Next, the Biden regime has announced that foreign POS Trevor Noah is going to host this year’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner.  Joe will probably be down in the basement eating his chicken noodle soup and watching reruns of “McCloud.”   Next, the White House is breaking with the nation’s governors and mayors and is demanding the American people remain masked- perhaps for the remainder of their lives.  F— off.  (Interesting note: thanks to the Biden regime’s heavy handedness on masks and vaccines, Catholic school enrollments are skyrocketing as people take their children out of public-school hellholes and send them somewhere they can breathe freely and actually learn something worthwhile.  Good for you!)
  17. 2022 Monday P: Political News I- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, made an incredibly wise suggestion to the Bidenistas: ‘why not focus on tax rates in your financial package?’  Meanwhile, Senator Jon Thune, R-SD, and Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, said the ‘Joe Biden regime should NOT force masks on America’s toddlers.’  In other news, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is blaming America’s workers for inflicting inflation upon themselves and NOT the tottering Biden regime.  Uh, okay, Nancy.  She says ‘too many Americans entering the workforce is causing inflation and blasts Senator Joe Manchin’s of Joe Biden’s absolutely insane spending plans.  Finally, in nonessential news, Sandy “The Fly” Cortez is campaigning for Lone Star State progressives.  Big whoop.
  18. 2022 Monday Q: Lawsuit and Legal News- The investigation of special counsel John Durham reveals the Clinton campaign did indeed spy on the Trump campaign and even after when President Trump was in the Oval Office.  Clinton lawyer, Michael Sussman, apparently was the go-between with Hillary and her team on one side and corrupt federal government employees on the other creating a fabricated story about President Donald J. Trump and the Russians.  Everyone knows the Chi-Coms AND the Russians own slobbering Joe Biden.   Former California Congressman Devin Nunes who now works for President Trump says, ‘expect more indictments coming against the Clinton camp soon.’  In other lawsuit and legal news, the judge in the case between former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and New York Times says the case will be tossed before it goes to the jury which means, she was going to WIN.
  19. 2022 Monday R:  Tranny News of the Day- In more embarrassment for American athletics, chick-with-a-dick Lia Thomas most likely will qualify for NCAA championship swim meets which is incredible.  This is insane.
  20. 2022 Monday S: LGBTQIA+ NEWS-  In other news, two ‘beards’ split from one another: actress Rosario Dawson and Senator “Creepy Cory” Booker, DS-NJ.  They claim they are still ‘friends.’  NO one can find photos of them together anywhere.  It’s all a big scam to make the world believe both of them are straight.
  21. 2022 Monday T: Sports News I- The National Football League denies it told white rapper Eminem NOT to take a knee at yesterday’s Super Bowl LVI halftime show.   Folks, we did not watch the halftime show nor will we ever because it’s unnecessary and it interrupts the flow of the game.  Had the teams not sat in the locker rooms for almost 56 minutes, perhaps the Bengals might have won?  Why not have the ‘halftime show’ at the END of the show as a celebratory party?
  22. 2022 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #950 with a jackpot of $183 million up for grabs: 16, 25, 27, 49, 55, and Power 17. Out of 48,573 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $26,101.

44. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 2022

In the final news of the night, we learned that the worthless loser, “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell- always playing both sides of the aisle- condemns Donald J. Trump after NOT voting to convict. He blasts him and blames him for all events that happened on January 06, 2021, before, during, and after the Capitol Hill Riots in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs infiltrated Trump supporters and carried out one of the all-time great False Flag operations in the history of the United States.

  61. 2021 Saturday: FIRST- the second impeachment trial of President Donald J. Trump ends with a vote of 57-43, 10 votes shy of the number required to convict.  Seven scurrilous Republicans joined their ‘fellow’ Democrats to convict.  Richard Burr and Pat Toomey who are retiring as well as the typical RINOs- Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and now Bill Cassidy.  As for “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, at first, we heard he was going to vote to convict and then the AP said he wouldn’t.  We guess he licked his finger, held it up in the air, felt the direction public opinion was going, and elected NOT to vote to convict his wife’s former boss.  It’s over but is it ever over?  We expect to see the Dems via federal prosecutors sometime in late 2023-early 2024 file federal charges in court accusing the former president of these very same crimes, rather like what that putz Jimmy Comey did to Hillary Clinton by first clearing her of mishandling classified info, dirtying her up again, and then clearing a second time a couple of days out from the 2016 Presidential Election.   For the Dems to pull this off, they may have to keep Antifa members who participated in the January 6 riots so they can use them to testify against Trump, sort of like how they kept members of the Trump campaign locked up, you know, trying to ‘sweat them.’
  62. 2021 Saturday A: Earlier in the day, the Democrat House managers held a vote to call witnesses and by a margin of 55-45, it passed.  However, after some whispered speaking, they decided to include one little tidbit of ‘witness testimony’ from Jaime Herrera-Beutler in which, hearsay from a conference call between Kevin McCarthy and President Trump was admitted.  Both sides agreed to its inclusion but then nothing more on witnesses because Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, said that would open the door to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser, and to others who have control over securing the Capitol Building and the District of Columbia.  We would have loved to have seen Speaker Pelosi answer questions as to WHY, if she believe the capitol was in imminent danger, why she and Mayor “Bow Wow” Bowser did not take President Trump on his offer of 10,000 National Guardsmen.  Meanwhile, there was some speculation earlier today as to whether a SECRET impeachment vote could have occurred in the spirit of Soviet Union’s show trials that would have sunk former President Trump.  It did not come to fruition. 
  63. 2021 Saturday B: Senator Cruz went on to say that he believes left-wing social media blew up last night demanding witnesses because it was clear the “C-Team” House managers were blowing it big time.  Senator Cruz said that if the Dems wanted witnesses, the GOP would call numerous witnesses, so the House managers pulled back from this attempted ‘Hail Mary’ pass.  The senator also went onto say that he believes Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer is dealing with out-of-control chaos in that last night, EVERYONE agreed that witnesses were not required whereas this morning Jamie Raskin and his fellow Democrat hacks were demanding them.  Cruz concluded that IF the Dems wanted witnesses, this could drag the bogus impeachment proceedings out to late February or into March, derailing much of Joe Biden’s agenda.
  64. 2021 Saturday C: Regarding the impeachment trial, after the trial wrapped up yesterday, CNN attempted to come to the rescue of the floundering House managers by dropping a story of the ‘phone call between House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and President Trump in which, the president said that the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill rioters were more impassioned over the 2020 Elections than McCarthy was.  This led to Ms. Herrera-Beutler and the Senator Mike Lee phone call, strange information the Democrats tried to inject into the proceedings and then wisely retreated from. 
  65. 2021 Saturday D: Former Acting Deputy Secretary of DHS- Ken Cuccinelli- was telling Newsmax that ‘the DHS is responsible for securing all federal buildings and monuments in Washington, D.C., with the exception of two: the U.S. Supreme Court and the U.S. Capitol, both of which have their own police forces.’  He went on to say that he ‘was shocked by the lack of preparedness on that day’ and pointed out that when help was offered to D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow Wow” Bowser, she rejected the offer, to stay away.  He pointed out that the National Guard is not a rapid deployment force, that it has to be pre-deployed and the armed for the mission at hand.  Technically, Nancy Pelosi does not have the authority to call the National Guard but could have told Mayor Bowser to do it which she would have then requested but none of this happened.  This is why so many are skeptical that the mob was spontaneous or that Trump called it into being.   
  66. 2021 Saturday E: Thane Rosenbaum told Newsmax that the Dems ‘blew the second impeachment’ by putting all their marbles in one basket, the charge of Donald J. Trump inciting insurrection against his own government.  He went on to say that ‘the president’s own words on January 6, 2021, cleared him of any and all charges of incitement.  Bill McGinley- former White House Cabinet secretary- says the Dems relied on newspaper stories which is bull crap.  He says they totally missed the mark whereas the defense team continually cited case law.  He also said that IF the Dems had gotten witnesses, they would have opened a Pandora’s box that would have destroyed them.  What they also didn’t want was the defense’s request that IF witnesses were to testify, they would have to do it in person.  Chef Lilah at the AICPENDBLOG.COM said it was all emotional and that listening to Manager Raskin’s attempts at sobbing made her sick.  
  67. 2021 Saturday F: Although no one in the Democratic Party ever expressed outrage at black men knocking out white people across the country, what they call “polar bear hunting,’ Vice President “Kooky Kamala” Harris is now speaking out against ‘rising waves of assaults on Asian Americans.’  We agree, it’s horrible and it must stop; however, why didn’t Kamala say something about all the attacks on white folks over the course of the past year?  Hypocrisy.   We also suspect that when the Oakland, California, attacker is apprehended, he will be a fellow Asian or other minority.  It always turns out like this…
  68. 2021 Saturday G: Oxford University says that it will test COVID-19 vaccine response among children for the first time as demands across the country for schools to reopen continue increasing.  Speaking of the Chi-Com virus, New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo whose policies killed far too many people in his state’s retirement and nursing homes now finds himself forced to duck inquiring reporters who want the TRUTH.   In other news about the Wuhan Virus, the Pentagon approves 20 additional teams to carry the vaccine to greater numbers of the American people.  Next, the White House DEMANDS answers from the Chi-Coms as to early data on the virus.  They stepped up these demands following the World Health Organization’s backtracking from their original clearing of the Wuhan Institute of Virology as the source of the disease.
  69. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Daily Update:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 108,428,619 confirmed cases, +384,681, 2,389,860, confirmed deaths, +11,872, and 60,778,149 confirmed recoveries, +273,410.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 27,825,007 confirmed cases, up 109,859 from yesterday’s reporting, 488,152 confirmed deaths, UP 4,457, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- NO more updates on this number thanks to Joe Biden, going on for nearly as long as #46 has been in the White House.  Coincidence?  You be the judge.  NOTE- in the White House 25 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 158,757 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 45,138 people.  
  70. 2021 Saturday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,469,853 confirmed cases, 46,435 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 425 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 330,427 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Indiana.  Currently, they have 649,610 confirmed cases, 12,117 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 718,746 confirmed cases, 5,304 confirmed deaths, and 651,522 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Turkey.  The former Ottoman Empire has 2.579,816 confirmed cases, 27,377 confirmed deaths, and 2,468,419 confirmed recoveries. 
  71. 2021 Saturday J: Stick around for tonight’s Super Lotto and Powerball results.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3534 with a $20 million jackpot on the line.   Here are the winning numbers: 18, 22, 38, 40, 42, and Mega 13.  Out of 127,647 winning tickets, the highest were THREE people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $13,746.  The three winning tickets were sold at: (1) Papa Liquor in Corona Del Mar, CA 92625; (2) Chevron in Pittsburgh, CA 94565; and (3) Country Store, Fresno, CA 93727.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball, Draw #820 with a $56 million jackpot on the line: 20, 28, 33, 63, 68, and Powerball 20.  Out of 51,833 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $15,022.
  72. 2021 Saturday K: In the final news of the night, we learned that the worthless loser, “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell- always playing both sides of the aisle- condemns Donald J. Trump after NOT voting to convict.  He blasts him and blames him for all events that happened on January 06, 2021, before, during, and after the Capitol Hill Riots in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs infiltrated Trump supporters and carried out one of the all-time great False Flag operations in the history of the United States.  Later, the earpiece in the ear of Joe Biden told Joe to say, ‘while the final vote did not lead to conviction, the substance of the charge is not in doubt.’  Who told you to mumble this, Joe?  Barack Obama or Xi Jinping?  He was not finished there, however- here is what else he said: “Even those opposed to the conviction, like Senate Minority Leader McConnell believe Donald Trump was guilty of ‘dereliction of duty and practically and morally responsible for provoking the violence unleashed on the Capitol.”  There you go- the False Flag effort continues.   Speaking of Joe Biden, he signs yet another executive order banning the use of “Wuhan Virus” when referring to the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  We will try to remember that.
  73. 2022 Sunday: Today is Super Bowl LVI.  Stick around…
