  52. 2020 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- the Beijing Bat Flu, the one Xi Jinping sent to the rest of the world, continues trashing the world as the escapee from the Wuhan Institute of Virology continues taking names and calling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 19,734,428 confirmed cases, UP 253,098 cases, 728,612 confirmed deaths, UP 5,013, and 12,001,537 confirmed recoveries, UP 199,690.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 5,121,401 confirmed cases, UP 45,546, 164,621 confirmed deaths, UP 658, and 2,498,579 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,609.  The question is, WHEN are the Chi-Coms going to pay the GIGANTIC PRICE for their crimes?

  54. 2020 Sunday B: People still await the VP pick of “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  We hope to hear it soon but speculation abounds about two things: is it possible that whomever the former VP chooses to be his number two will be such a bottom-level loser such as Stacey Abrams or Gretchen Whitmer because no one of substance wishes to be on a doomed ticket or could what Chef Cheryl will write about in tomorrow’s blog post- Monday, August 10, 2020- could we see a NEW Obama-Biden ticket, one in which, Michelle Obama will be at the top and Dr. Jill Biden at the bottom?  Think about it.  Be sure to read tomorrow’s blog post.
  55. 2020 Sunday C: In Chicago, after false reports of the Chicago PD executing a young black man in the streets, mobs rush out and begin attacking upscale stores and neighborhoods along the ‘Magnificent Mile,’ beating, burning, rioting, and looting like a bunch of lunatics.  The following day, Mayor Lori Lightfoot would berate her citizens but what does it matter?  Nothing changes.  Meanwhile, in Washington, D.C., a mass shooting occurs between black citizens leaving one dead and another twenty injured in varying degrees.  Mainstream media remained mum on both incidents, but Tucker Carlson at Fox News had the balls to both report it the following day and show video of the incidents.  Meanwhile, in Portland, Oregon, rioting lunatics assault an elderly woman simply because she forgot to wear her mask in public.  Time to start whacking and stacking, folks.  Gun sales continue going UP!
  56. 2020 Sunday D: Speaking of guns, a tragedy occurs in Wilson, North Carolina, as a man named Darius Sessoms, 25-years-old, walked across their street and shot his five-year-old neighbor, Cannon Hinnant, in the head as he rode his bicycle in front of his home.  The child was white while the shooter was black.  Sadly, the news media has done its best to let this story go unreported.  Go figure.  Police are investigating but said the ‘shooting was not random.’  
  57. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 204,098,545 confirmed cases, +654,388, 4,315,487 confirmed deaths, +8,100 and 183,276,380 confirmed recoveries, +534,294.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,780,461 confirmed cases, UP 237,123 from yesterday’s reporting, 633,798 confirmed deaths, UP 337, [iii] and 29,922,841 confirmed recoveries, UP 63,779.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [iv]  
  58. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 315,011 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 89,067 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[x]        
  62. 2021 Monday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.390 per gallon, $3.022 in Florida, $4.083 in Hawaii, and $3.873 in Washington state. [xi]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.792.  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- Bosnia and Herzegovina: $5.078 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,618,816,777,129 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xiii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after the Chi-Coms, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Kingdom with $440 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  63. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As you know, the AICPENDBLOG.COM tracks the movements of our ‘Johnny on the spot’ ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  By our count, today is her 139th day overseeing the U.S.-Mexico border and her 45th day since he sole visit to quietest part of the border, the El Paso Sector.  When will she begin doing the job to which senile Joe Biden appointed her to do? [xiv]   Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $507,711,936.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $241,603,657,728.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,476,244.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,476,244. [xv]  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks.  The Western Roman Empire imploded because of its (1) inability to control its borders (2) endless wars (3) constant political strife and intrigue and (4) normalizing aberrant behavior such as homosexuality, pedophilia, and other forms of immoral perversion.  The collapse of the Western Roman Empire led to 1,000 years of Darkness, the Dark Ages.  We must save our country and the Western World by stopping the barbarians).
  64. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As things along the southern border continue getting out of hand along the border and across the country, the Biden regime is taking increased heat as to its lack of transparency as to where they are dumping the more than two million illegal aliens around the country.  Sadly, critics such as Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, are facing pushback from progressives that want NO separation with their crazy border policies and legitimate concern over the border invasion.
  65. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett calls on Lebanon to take ‘responsibility’ for the rocket fire coming out of the southern part of their country and into Israel.  We know Hezbollah is the one firing the missiles which is why the civilized world must exterminate the Untermensch.  In other news, eight hundred mixed Israeli and Palestinian families are calling for unification following the lapse of a law.  Meanwhile, the U.S. is preparing to slap Belarus with a new round of sanctions.   Finally, Israel’s diaspora President Nachman Shai says that ‘IF we lose the United States, things are going to get bad for the Jewish people.’  
  66. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Centers for Disease Control are urging Americans NOT to travel to Israel, France, or Thailand due to increasing COVID-19 cases.  Meanwhile, Australian troops are going door to door Downunder to make sure that EVERYONE is home and is not out violating the stay-at-home orders.  WTF?  Concerned citizens are warning the same BS could soon come to American shores. 
  67. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As the Biden regime continues the drumbeat that ‘everyone must be vaccinated, everyone must be vaccinated (or face ostracization from society’), the Centers for Disease Control claims there’s ‘limited evidence that people recovered from the Xi Jinping Bat Flu require vaccinations or that antibodies protect them from ALL variants.’  Speaking of Xi Jinping, noted author Gordon Chang says that ‘Xi’s actions show the deliberate spread of COVID-19 across the world.’  Elsewhere, the dean of the Brown University of Public Health- Dr. Ashish Jha- says that ‘people must try to understand vaccine-hesitant Americans rather than vilifying them.’  Dr. Scott Gottlieb says ‘leave COVID-19 response up to local communities rather than issuing blanket rulings.’  Finally, Christian Whiton says that ‘IF the lab leak theory is proven true, the Chi-Coms owe the world $35 trillion in damages and lost lives.’  Amen.
  68. 2021 Monday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Democrats want a ‘permanent pandemic’ because they loathe giving up power and want to make people more dependent upon the federal government.   Next, American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten is demanding vaccine mandates for ALL schools or else, she will not authorize the reopening of schools.  U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona says the ‘nation stands at a fork in the road when it comes to vaccine and mask mandates and the reopening of schools.’  Meanwhile, the Pentagon is ordering that ALL active-duty personnel hold out his or her arms for a jab by September 15 or else.  (Note- could be loads of courts martial). 
  69. 2021 Monday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Former President Barack Hussein Obama continues taking heat for his sixtieth birthday party over the weekend due to NO precautions against COVID-19 (because leaked film shows it as such) while Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci is blasting ONLY the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in South Dakota while giving both Obama and the Lollapalooza Music Festival big passes.  Speaking of Obama’s birthday party, critics were slamming a New York Times reporter for seemingly giving the Obamas a pass because they are ‘sophisticated vaccinated people’ while the little people are nothing more than ignorant mopes.  Regarding the vaccines, pollster Frank Luntz says the ‘divide over vaccines is now a massive political chasm.’
  70. 2021 Monday M: Miscellaneous News I– Small towns across the United States are offering remote workers up to $20,000 to relocate to their towns.
  71. 2021 Monday N: Economic News– Job openings during July hit a record 10.1 million.  Sadly, way too many people are sitting at home, squirting out bastard children, smoking the crack pipe, breaking into their neighbors’ homes, or joining mobs when they should be either on the job or seeking one. 
  72. 2021 Monday O: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Freshly back from parental leave, Chicago Police Department Officer Ella French lost her life during a routine traffic stop after a punk she pulled over shot her in the face.  Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot blamed everyone and everything else instead of her failed policies for this tragic loss of life.  Calls continue growing for this pathetic POS governor, a person who could never find a man even if her life depended upon it to resign and to do so now.  Law enforcement turned their backs on this corrupt mayor.  Speaking of Chicago, in a 10-hour span over the weekend, criminals shot seventy-three people killing eleven of them.  William Kelly told Newsmax that ‘Frog-Face’s’ comments on the shooting of Officer French were despicable.  Officer French was the first Windy City officer killed since 1987.  Finally, Cleveland, Ohio, activists are pressing for the formation of the toughest police department oversight committee in the entire nation.  NOT good.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Human-Caused Disaster News– Report: apparently, the condominium that collapsed in Surfside, Florida was not built to code.  However, the age of the building, who were the original builders, the Trafficante Mob?  Good luck with getting restitution out of them.
  74. 2021 Monday Q: Natural Disasters News– The Dixie Fire is the largest wildfire in California history what with the destruction of more than 463,000 acres, the leveling of the historic mining town of Greenville, and at least eight people missing, five of them from Greenville.  This crap occurs every summer and fall in California and it is because Democrat control has done nothing about maintaining the forests, building new water infrastructure (in fact, they are tearing down dams), or working with PG&E to help them put transmission lines underground instead of forcing them to go ‘GREEN’ within the next few years.  Shame on them.
  75. 2021 Monday R: NASA, Space, and UFO News– Government has bestowed upon a Harvard professor $1.8 million to study UFOs.  Sounds like the money-go-round to us, folks.
  76. 2021 Monday S: Fake News I– We learned today that CNN’s Chris “Fraido” Cuomo has been barred by management from discussing the problems of his perverted brother, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov,” after already advising big brother on how to combat the calls for his resignation from office.
  77. 2021 Monday T: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump is calling on the Biden regime to restart construction on the southern border wall.  We seriously doubt that enfeebled old Joe Biden will pay any heed to this sage advice.  Meanwhile, as the Dems continue the back-slapping glee over forcing through the ‘infrastructure bill’ to the floor for a full vote, President Trump slams the Trojan horse of a bill as being the beginning of the “Green New Deal,” a fascist takeover of the country by the Democrats hidden by the disguise of impending doom via Climate Change, Global Warming, and Extreme Weather.  Amen, Mr. President, amen.  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says of the Dems’ $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill that it is a ‘gateway to socialism.’
  78. 2021 Monday U: New York State News– Lt. Governor Kathy Hochul, Democrat from upstate New York, is preparing to become governor if current office-holder Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov resigns over his growing scandals or either through impeachment or via arrest for the crimes of which he has been accused removes the cretin from office,   Here are the names of the eleven women accusing him of wrongdoing: (1) Lindsey Boylan (2) Charlotte Bennett (3) Ana Liss (4) Alyssa McGrath (5) Anna Ruch (6) Karen Hinton (7) Virginia Limmiatis (8) Jessica Bakeman (9) Sherry Vill (10) Valerie Bauman and (11) Brittany Commisso[xvi].  (Note- one thing that jumps out at us at the AICPENDBLOG.COM is that Governor “Killer” Cuomo must be a racist because all these women are WHITE.  Wow.  Regarding Cuomo, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘it’s over for Cuomo as he’s NO Bill Clinton.’
  79. 2021 Monday V: Texas State News– Crybaby sniveling fugitive Democrats from the Lone Star State are suing Governor Greg Abbott, Republican, for having ‘forced them to flee the state so they could not do their jobs.’  Talk about deflection.  Still, a Texas judge blocked the dragnet Austin planned to launch against these recalcitrant, wayward scumbags who fled more than a month ago via private jets with plenty of light beer with which to numb their fears to hide out in Washington, D.C.  One of them- a Madea-look-alike- had the nerve to sign “We shall overcome” upon first arriving in the District of Columbia.  The judge said that going after these brave Democrats would violate their civil rights. [xvii]
  80. 2021 Monday W: The Wrap-Up– Let me leave you with a closing thought or two…IF we do not fight back with everything in our wheelhouse against the crap the Democrats are trying to force down our throats, we will lose our God-given freedoms for a long, long time.  Most countries are able to break free eventually but if we are to use the rat-eating Chi-Coms, the Cubans, and the North Koreans as an example, if there is one thing these criminal regimes have learned is that the worse the oppression, the more difficult it is to break free.  Look at the Chi-Coms and the North Koreans’ concentration camps, horrible places where entire generations live out their lives.  Look, it is US, or it is THEM and as long as freedom flows through our veins, we must resist the Democrats with every ounce of fiber God has instilled in us.  We are strong, there are more of us than there are of them and if the RINO Republicans would stop act like kapos working for the Nazis, we might be able to stymie the scum.  We also must join forces to help our beleaguered border guards.  Otherwise, we could soon see Chi-Com troops patrolling our streets at the request of the Democratic-Socialists.  Thanks for joining us today, we will meet up again tomorrow.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  81. 2022 Tuesday: Friends, I knew I did something right when I switched parties several years ago (did so on November 08, 2018)- we were still writing at Google Blogger- because after what we saw yesterday at Mar-a-Lago in conservative Florida, there is NO way in hell I could remain a Democrat, even if my lovely wife swore to cut me off if I left.  Look, what more excuse does one need to add new firearms to the DARK gun cabinet than seeing the Joestapo raid Mar-a-Lago?  Why would I not want to scoop up some new shotguns and handguns after learning the IRS is going to add another 87,000 agents to their employment rolls?  I had other things I wanted to say today but friends, the raid on Mar-a-Lago demonstrates that our country is embarking down a new and desolate path into authoritarianism.  I hope to God we reclaim our country over the course of the subsequent two election cycles as if we don’t, well, it’s going to be time to move down to the D.R. and enjoy retirement.  Let us know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht- America’s favorite German chef.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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.
  68. 2016 Monday:  In the autonomous district of Yamalo-Nenets, Siberia, an outbreak of anthrax kills one person, sickens another eight, and kills at least 2,300 reindeer.  The authorities blame it on…climate change…what else?  Elsewhere, after receiving a request from the ‘government’ in Libya to take out ISIS thugs in Sirte, NATO warplanes arrive on scene, drops loads of bombs, and according to the government kills a whole lotta scumbags.
  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.
  70. 2018 Wednesday: The remains of dozens of presumed casualties of the Korean War were returned to U.S. soil; in an emotional ceremony in Hawaii, military members carried 55 boxes draped with American flags off two military transport planes.  Meanwhile, in Paris, angry ticket agents at the Eiffel Tower go on strike leaving tens of thousands of tourists perplexed as to WTF to do?
  71. 2019 Thursday: Keyboardist with the Kinks[xiv] from 1979 to the early 1990s- Ian Gibbons- died at his home in England from bladder cancer; he was only 67.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate confirms Kelly Craft as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com intransigence, President Donald J. 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. 
  74. 2020 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states where 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: 500,130 confirmed cases, 9,224 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. 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.
  75. 2021 Sunday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 198,968,742 confirmed cases, +460,657, 4,239,563 confirmed deaths, +7,115 and 179,593,456 confirmed recoveries, +342,991.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,767,126 confirmed cases, UP 21,102 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,380 confirmed deaths, UP 70, [i] and 29,673,290 confirmed recoveries, UP 7,173.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]  
  76. 2021 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,938 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 93,140 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  77. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,965,396 confirmed cases, 64,423 confirmed deaths, and 2,100,971 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,636,066 confirmed cases, 39,079 confirmed deaths, and 2,089,018 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 42,862 confirmed cases, 537 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 474,835 confirmed cases, 6,168 confirmed deaths, and 230,729 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Missouri: they have 681,518 confirmed cases, 10,289 confirmed deaths, and 577,236 confirmed recoveries. [iii]    
  78. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 875,801 confirmed cases, 6,477 confirmed deaths, and 850,950 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Gambia, 166th country on the list: 7,709 cases of the virus, 212 confirmed deaths and 6,600 confirmed recoveries. [iv]     
  79. 2021 Sunday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,935.47, DOWN 149.06 points (-0.42%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,672.68, DOWN 105.59 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,395.26, DOWN 23.89 points (-0.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $73.81 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.19%).  The price of GOLD is $1,812.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.55 per troy ounce, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,045.90 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $4.48 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,660.50 per troy oz, +14.52 (+0.55%).[vi] The price of RHODIUM is $18,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%). The price of NEODYMIUM is $775,000.00 per CNY/T, +22,500.00 (+2.99%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,597.75 per USD/T, +2.25 (+0.09%). [vii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.     In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,458.00 and in Jamaican Dollar, a buck equal 154.26 and in Japanese Yen, one dollar equals 109.70 of theirs. [viii]        
  80. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.373 per gallon, $2.971 in Florida, $4.084 in Hawaii, and $3.854 in Washington state. [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:

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.

202. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, JULY 21, 2022

Friends, we have said for years now that there is but one way in which this country can deal with the illegal alien invasion- militarize the southern border. We believe minefields, electrified fencing, razor wire, obstacles in the middle of the Rio Grande River right down the dividing line between Mexico and the United States must be emplaced.

[v]  
  59. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 307,366 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.

  63. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.321 per gallon, $2.983 in Florida, $4.081 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Colorado: $3.531.  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- Morocco: $4.455 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,549,227,505,742 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  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 South Korea, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Canada with $120 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Amazing as it might seem to inattentive readers, today is Day No. 120 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 26 since her one and only visit to the border just so she could say, “I’ve been to the border” (but sure as hell have not gone back nor will go back).   The American people deserve better than this cackling hen, this braying jackass, this cawing crow, this howling jackal, this gibbering hyena to be in charge of the most important job in the country: protecting the American people by securing the border from the dregs of the Third World yet ‘Willie Brown’s mattress’ won’t do her flipping job.  Below, you will see the statistics for the Biden Border tribulation as compiled by One America News:
  65. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Thanks to OAN, here are the current stats for the Biden Border Holocaust: (1) Cost this Day for caring for the tidal wave rolling over us from the Third World: $563,965,120.  Just this day, people, imagine what good this money could do for the American people.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the filth from the Third World: $220,838,002,688.  Yes, this number is correct.  The Democrats would rather spend this money on foreign invaders than on those for whom they claim to care: women, girls, blacks, Latinos, gays, trannys, and Muslims.  Next, (3) here is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed into the U.S. year- 2,263,412.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE LOW ESTIMATE of illegals said to be in the United States: 36,263,412. [xv]  We disagree with this last number: since 2009 when the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day first began tapping out our initial posts, we estimated the number of illegals in the country as between 35-50 million.  However, fast forward 12 years, we believe that number is closer to 75-100 million illegals.  IF we deported all the illegals back to their ratholes, rents and mortgages would plummet, jobs would increase as would wages, our children, grand-children, and great-grand-children would receive better educations, crime would drop, and hospitals and medical centers would provide better service.  However when you have 75-100 million sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats, everything goes to hell.  ROUND THEM UP, IMPRISON THEM, BUILD THE WALL, AND THEN DEPORT THEM ALL.  Our nation is in danger of being overwhelmed by the castoffs of the world’s S-hole countries.
  66. 2021 Wednesday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district says that the Biden regime and the Democrats are ‘shirking their constitutional duty’ by not getting the border under control.   Speaking of the border, we learned today that cases of the Chi-Vi in the Rio Grande Valley are up by a shocking 900-percent.  Shut down the border.  NOW!
  67. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the land of the Chi-Coms, a massive flood in the middle portion of the country has left dozens dead and tens of thousands homeless.  Sucks to be them.   Elsewhere, effete French President Emanuel Macron is calling for an investigation into whether Morocco is using Israeli Pegasus spyware to monitor his phone calls.  Speaking of France, Paris is launching its new controversial Chi-Vi vaccine passports across the nation- no shots, no participation in normal life.  Mark of the Beast?  Beginning to look that way, folks…
  68. 2021 Wednesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new poll from Trafalgar says that a vast majority of Americans believe taking the vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu should be a matter of personal choice and is a matter of personal choice.  Yet Democrats continue trying to steamroll the American people into taking this questionable crap even when the federal VAERS website points out the thousands of deaths and healthcare crises associated with it.  (Yup, we expect the FBI will come banging on the door at some point).  Meanwhile, Liz Harrington- President Donald J. Trump’s spokesperson- said that ‘the Biden regime has NEVER sought help from President Trump on promoting the COVID-19/Chi-Com Flu vaccines.’  Hmmm.
  69. 2021 Wednesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Here’s something truly fascinating: communist George Soros and Bill Gates have bought a major COVID-19 testing company.  Now, we can speculate as to why?  We believe it’s to help the Chi-Coms in their ongoing bid to collect the DNA of all Americans for future nefarious use.   Speaking of the vaccines, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is defending the rights of Americans to refuse the Bat Flu vaccines.  In other news related to the Wuhan Lab-generated pandemic, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci has ‘lost his credibility.’  Good thing that Senator Rand Paul sent a request for a criminal referral against the diminutive doctor to the U.S. Department of Justice seeing as how Doc Fauci lied to Congress on more than one occasion.
  70. 2021 Wednesday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News-   Arizona state Senator Wendy Rogers, Republican, is calling for a decertification of the 2020 Presidential Election as the evidence of massive voter fraud and corruption negates the election.  This is bombshell news, news that is sending Democrat politicians howling mad into the wilderness for 100 years.  What was certified has been proven to be inaccurate and the next step is for the Arizona House to submit their request to decertify the most corrupt election in the history of the United States and get the ball rolling to get usurper Joe Biden out of the White House and into an orange jumpsuit.    Likewise, Texas state Republicans are seeking to conduct their own audit of the 13th largest counties where electoral shenanigans occurred.
  71. 2021 Wednesday M: 2020 Election Audit– Meanwhile, as steam begins to build in Pennsylvania for an election audit in that crooked state, Attorney General Josh Shapiro, DS-PA, is doing everything he can to prevent voting machines and software from being turned over to Republican lawmakers.  IF this was the MOST SECURE election in the history of the country, then why NOT hand the requested data and devices over to the GOP?  There is so much information coming out of the Keystone State showing the election reeked of fraud that it would be a good thing to investigate the Democratic Party’s shenanigans.
  72. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden News I– Apparently, Joe Biden had some sort of ‘town hall’ in Ohio earlier today, one in which, he was incoherent as ever.  How long can this nightmare continue with a feeble-minded president who would rather offer ice cream to young girls than try to do his job?  What a national and global embarrassment.   It would be nice if they could sync his decrepit mind with the earpiece directing him.  Zombie!
  73. 2021 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– In news we truly don’t believe, the Biden regime’s Department of Education has said it will ‘back off’ trying to stuff Criminal, uh, Critical Race Theory down the throats of America’s students.  Oh, really? 
  74. 2021 Wednesday P: Political News I– Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, and Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, have co-authored a bill with which to protect ALL law enforcement officers from having to purchase liability insurance to protect themselves from civil lawsuits launched by thugs against them.  Next, Democrats are proposing a bill that will demand that all women ages 18-21 register for Selective Service, i.e., the draft.  Speaking of Democrats, a new poll says that ONLY 22-percent of Arizona Democrats would vote for Senator Kyrsten Sinema in the 2022 Democratic Party Primary.  This is because she seems to be a person of conscience who believes in following the dictates of the U.S. Constitution and not the loony tunes BS coming out of the Biden regime or out of the puckered puss of House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi. 
  75. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News II– How about some more Democrat hypocrisy: Iowa Rep. Cindy Axne, 3rd congressional district, swore she would ‘never accept corporate PAC money’ and now she has.  Wow.   Anyhow, she now is under increasing pressure from the voters of that great state either to honor her pledge or to step down and let someone else with more scruples to do the job.  Speaking of corrupt Democrats, Rep. Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district and known paramour of a Chi-Com agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, is under investigation for corruption, fraud, and abuse of office by using campaign funds for his and his wife’s personal use.  Orange jumpsuit time coming soon.
  76. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News III– A new Rasmussen poll says that a vast majority of Americans would rather see a probe into Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots than they do the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, the bogus ‘insurrection’ staged and most likely set in motion by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Speaking of the nonagenarian speaker, she booted TWO of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s picks for her shoddy January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots Select Committee: Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, and Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district which led an angry Leader McCarthy to pull ALL Republicans from the faux select committee.  Closet Democrat Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, went out there and blasted Leader McCarthy for playing politics.  What the hell do we have to do to send this bozo packing?   Anyhow, Rep. Cheney said that ‘McCarthy is undermining the select committee.’ 
  77. 2021 Wednesday S: Political News IV– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani has launched a new legal defense fund, the “Freedom Fund” to help those beset by crooked politicians and attorneys seeking to do patriots wrong.  In other pressing political news, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, R-KY, says the ‘Republicans will play no part in raising the debt ceiling.   Meanwhile, GOP lawmakers are targeting colleges and universities doling out abortifacients to students.   Elsewhere, Lt. General (Ret.) Keith Kellogg and Brigadier General Robert Spalding (Ret.) say that current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley- a political hack if one ever existed- should step down from his post.  Milley is more concerned with fighting ‘white supremacism’ than he is in doing battle with the People’s Liberation Army in communist China.  What a disgrace.
  78. 2021 Wednesday T: Political News V– Republicans in Michigan have finally stripped Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of her COVID-19 emergency powers.  Speaking of “Gravel Gertie,” we learned today that the so-called hit team that was going to kidnap her and sell her to the Chi-Coms or Russians or whoever most likely was full of FBI agents and informants, so the question immediately arises- were these patriots entrapped by the feds?  Rather sounds as though they were… Meanwhile, the U.S. Treasury said today that ONLY 6.5-percent of the $46 billion set aside to help Americans affected by COVID-19 to pay their rent has been utilized.  Folks, this is how it ALWAYS goes- money is stuffed into various programs that almost always seems to find its way back into the hip pockets of the nomenklatura, i.e., the Democrats and their lackeys.  Wow.  Next, that little milquetoast is at it again: fired Deputy FBI Director Andy McCabe says that the formal accusation of Trump ally Mr. Tom Barrack could ‘open a Pandora’s box for the 45th president.’  Uh-huh, sure, Andy, sure, if you say so.  What are you now- 0 and 100?  Shut the hell up.
  79. 2021 Wednesday U: Moron News I– Creator of the extremely racist 1619 Project Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones said one of the stupidest statements any of us here at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day have heard in ages and that is that ‘among Western nations, Cuba is the most equal.’  You are our MORON of the DAY there, Ms. Bozo the Clown.
  80. 2021 Wednesday V: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Convicted sexual deviate Harvey Weinstein is set to begin his next trial in Los Angeles, California, following his transfer to that city.
  81. 2021 Wednesday W: National Security News– CISA- the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency- announced today that since 2009-2013, Chi-Com hackers have targeted the flow of oil through at least 23 major pipelines.   Elsewhere, the CIA has tapped its top ‘Bin Laden hunter’ to get to the bottom of the so-called ‘Havana syndrome,’ the one in which, U.S. diplomatic and military personnel are targeted by sonic attacks.
  82. 2021 Wednesday X: U.S. Senate News I– As things continue going from bad to worse for slobbering old Joe Biden, a bipartisan group of senators unveiled the new National Security Powers Act with which to strip the so-called ‘46th president’ of his abilities to wage war around the globe.  While we think this is a good thing, it should not be so constraining as to make future sound-of-mind and fit-of-body presidents incapable of protecting the country.  We don’t want to see presidents transformed into feckless prime ministers.  We do think, however, that before America enters a war anywhere around the globe, it must be a DECLARED WAR with the entire nation engaged in the fight.
  83. 2021 Wednesday Y: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump said that the ‘U.S. is on the path to communism what with the federal government and BIG TECH censoring everything and everyone.’
  84. 2021 Wednesday Z: California State News– As Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom faces imminent recall in September’s recall election, his good buddy, “Kooky Kamala” Harris announces she is going to return home to campaign on his behalf.  Yup, that’s really going to help the outgoing governor, “Kooky.”  Speaking of the recall, gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner says he, she, it is going on a bus tour.  Also, it appears as though Larry Elder will qualify to be on the recall election ballot.  If he does, many of us will be voting for him.  Another Republican running for the governor’s seat is former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said today that ‘Governor Newsom is actively encouraging the homeless to relocate to the once-Golden State.’  Yikes.  
  85. 2021 Wednesday AA: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3579 what with a $9 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto: 10, 11, 19, 30, 36, and Mega 07.  Out of 95,366 winning tickets, the highest winners were 11 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,374 apiece.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #865 with a jackpot of $161 million up for grabs: 27, 28, 44, 67, 68, and Powerball 11.  Out of 71,592 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 41 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $464 apiece.
  86. 2022 Thursday: Welcome to the Thursday edition of the NEWS of the DAY, past and present.   Friends, we have said for years now that there is but one way in which this country can deal with the illegal alien invasion- militarize the southern border.  We believe minefields, electrified fencing, razor wire, obstacles in the middle of the Rio Grande River right down the dividing line between Mexico and the United States must be emplaced.  We must make numerous rows of obstructions as well as preventative measures against tunnels such as tubing placed down in the ground that in the first sign of digging can channel flammable materials underground which can then be ignited.  We must place military forces returning from overseas along the U.S.-Mexico border giving them a year’s tour by which, they can begin reintegration into American society instead of being dumped on the streets by the likes of General Milley.  We believe seeding the river with alligators and perhaps even piranha fish and the deserts with additional rattlesnakes, scorpions, Gila monsters, and poisonous spiders would help halt the tidal wave as would the cutting off of all water supplies.  If we are to survive as a nation, we must expel these invaders including the brats.  These people are third-class citizens, used and abused by Americans.  We see them languishing in parking lots and wandering the streets.  NO ONE WANTS THEM.  People throw garbage at them, insult them, even spit on them.  Deport them and deport them now because when the GOP comes back, to hell with the immigration lawyers, the American people will join the vigilante movements by which, they will round up and forcibly- forcibly– deport all of them and the lawyers, too.  Enough is enough.  The time is fast approaching…Chef E.C. McCardle.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0898 a 24” x 36” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Arizona.”  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 Beach Boys released a somewhat humongous box set: “Hawthorne, CA- Birthplace of a Musical Legacy” on May 22, 2001.  This 2-CD set has approximately 57 tunes on it, big hits, not-so-big-hits, B-sides, unreleased, and archival tunes all lovingly compiled by Capitol Records with all sorts of additions with which to sweeten the pot.  This album was yet another gem for diehard Beach Boys fans as it contained more rarities if one can believe that that is even remotely possible.  IF you have not yet brought the music of fun-sun-surf-hot chicks, fast cars, motorcycles, and all the rest of the music that made our summers so much f**king fun back in the 1960s and 1970s and even beyond, this is the way in which new fans and old-timers like us to accomplish this necessary task. Seek it out, don’t fret the cost, and buy it now- you will be glad you did.

196. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 15, 2022

2021 Thursday R: U.S. Senate News I- The U.S. Senate passed a bill today BARRING imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China, the place where Chinese Nazis intern Uighur Muslims. They use them as slave labor as they try to batter them into submission. Good. NO more goods from the Chi-Coms period. Bring the supply chains home. Anyhow, the name of today’s act is the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act- the UFLPA.

  79. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 114 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris- apparently, the most despised woman in the nation’s capital- to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and to have NOTHING to stem the infestation of millions of illegal aliens flowing into the country.  Today is also her 20th day since her one and only visit to the border.  Still, the nation awaits her ‘second coming.’  Regarding the border, Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, says of the ongoing border calamity, that it is a ‘true, humanitarian crisis.’  Joe Biden, FIX the problem, stop the invasion.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland has given approval for immigration courts to begin dismissing illegal aliens immigration cases.

  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel came to Washington, D.C., today to meet with the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece.  They had an enjoyable conversation. Former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell said of Merkel that she is ‘naïve when it comes to the Chi-Coms and Russia.’   Next, mourners attended the funeral of slain Haitian leader Jovenel Moise today. 
  82. 2021 Thursday I:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Los Angeles reimposes a mask mandate as COVID-19 variant cases continue to skyrocket.  Could it be happening because of the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens being settled in the City of the Angels?  Los Angeles is requiring ALL citizens- vaccinated and unvaccinated- must wear masks or face the consequences.   Speaking of Chi-Vi vaccines, Joe Biden is reaching out to celebrities to go out and encourage everyone to get the shots NOW.   Elsewhere, South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson says that NO school within their state can force any student to get vaccinated or to show proof of Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations.  In other COVID-19-related news, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky says that it’s ‘within our power to control a fall surge of the Chi-Vi.’
  83. 2021 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– As if Johnson & Johnson is not already drawing fire for the quality of their Wuhan Flu vaccines, the company had to recall numerous spray sunscreens because they contain cancer-causing chemicals.  You didn’t know this before you put them on the market?  Who wants to get a J & J bat flu vaccine now?
  84. 2021 Thursday K:  Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– As disquieting news continues to come out of the Arizona 2020 Election Audit regarding the fraud and criminality that occurred in the Copper State on Election Night and in the subsequent days, House Democratic-Socialists continue trying to derail the process.   Let ‘em try.   Author Michael Wolff says that Fox News Channel gleefully took down President Donald J. Trump by calling Arizona early that night.  Scumbags.
  85. 2021 Thursday L:  Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden continues to draw flak as he continues lying about the 2020 Presidential Election and various states’ efforts at carrying out audits.   Next, Joe Biden says that the ‘U.S. will protect the U.S. embassy in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, but won’t send American troops to help re-establish law and order on the benighted island.
  86. 2021 Thursday M:  Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is calling out the hypocrisy of Senator Bernie Sanders, CPUSA-VT, for not calling the Cuban crisis what it is: the people are sick of communism and are seeking to revolt.     Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the “DOJ, the Biden regime, MUST answer for the alleged crimes of Hunter Biden.”  Amen.  Meanwhile, prosecutors are requesting that the Capitol Hill ‘rioter’ who carried the Trump flag onto the Senate floor does time in prison.’  What is up with these goobers?  Riots went on all last year and the human garbage involved them are out wandering about while patriots swept up in the greatest false flag operation in the history of the United States face years, even decades in federal slammers.  This is NOT America, and that pompous fat ass Gen. Mark Milley has the nerve to call Trump supporters, “Nazis?”  Look in the mirror, general.
  87. 2021 Thursday N:  Political News II– Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, and Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, are blasting House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s January 06, 2021, Select Committee probe as being little more than a flagrant waste of time.  Next, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that the Democrats possess an ’authoritarian impulse.’  We could have told you that, senator.   Moving on, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that the ‘U.S. does not need the U.N.’s help combatting racism in the United States.’   Speaking of racism, Rep. Brad Schneider, D-IL 10th congressional district, finds himself the target of a lawsuit by a female black staffer named Patrice Campbell who claims the work environment is both hostile and racist.   Her supervisor, Karen Davidman apparently told Ms. Campbell to ‘get a rope and put it around her neck’ and then when she complained, was pigeon-holed.  That’s Democrats for you and they call Republicans ‘racists.’  LOL.
  88. 2021 Thursday O:  Political News III– A new Gallup poll says that distrust of Fake News Media is increasing and that appreciation for law enforcement is going up across the country.  Two more heavy-duty blows atop the Democrat scumbags’ shoulders.   (Note- no wonder they are rushing in millions of illegal aliens, folks, using them to REPLACE the American people).  Meanwhile, a new Skynova poll says that 88-percent of the American people are terrified by the skyrocketing inflation being caused by senile old Joe Biden.  Elsewhere, as New York state goes to war against Chick-Fil-A restaurants in its state, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says he will ‘go to war’ for the successful chicken franchise.  Speaking of the Empire State, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov is set to answer questions in the probe swirling around him this weekend.  No wonder the big schmeckel has been quiet lately.   Finally, Rep. Joyce Beatty, DS-OH 3rd congressional district, underwent arrest in Washington, D.C., protesting for voting rights.
  89. 2021 Thursday P: U.S. Supreme Court News I– U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer says he has NO intention of retiring anytime soon, much to the dismay of dimwitted morons such as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her ignorant fellow (Suicide) Squad members.  After all, Justice Breyer recently hired at least four new law clerks for next year’s term.  That’s right, sob your eyes out there, AOC.
  90. 2021 Thursday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– We suspect the NFL must be trying to follow the NBA into doing more business in communist China than in the U.S. because the league is promising MORE WOKE social justice messaging in the upcoming season.  Folks, although we may report final scores as we did last year, none of us are going to buy anymore merchandise nor will we watch any more games.  Message to NFL_ “F**k you.”  In 10 years, you will regret your decision.
  91. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate passed a bill today BARRING imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China, the place where Chinese Nazis inter Uighur Muslims.  They use them as slave labor as they try to batter them into submission.  Good.  NO more goods from the Chi-Coms period.  Bring the supply chains home.  Anyhow, the name of today’s act is the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act- the UFLPA.
  92. 2021 Thursday S: Federal and State Court News– Pop singer Britney Spears is now able to hire her own attorney.  That, friends, is a step forward. 
  93. 2021 Thursday T: Fake News I– Alas, the CNN morning show starring Brianna “Whitebitchsplaining” Keillor is tanking, seriously tanking, and it’s easy to see why: puffed up, suck-eyed blowfish lead anchor from Australia comes off as one of the least likeable personalities on any ‘news channel.’  (Note- the answer is to deport her back to Downunder.
  94. 2021 Thursday U: President Donald J. Trump News– America’s President Donald J. Trump gave an “I-told-you-so” as news continues coming out showing that Fox News Channel called the state of Arizona early so as to help the Democrats steal the 2020 Presidential Election.  (Note- we also believe that in the Copper State, Martha McSally would still be a GOP vote in the U.S. Senate.  Lots of shenanigans underfoot on Election night and in the subsequent hours).  Next, President Donald J. Trump and U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy have set a date to meet together in New Jersey.
  95. 2021 Thursday V: Florida State News– Norwegian cruise lines is unhappy with the ban on COVID-19 vaccine passports and is suing the Florida Surgeon General Dr. Scott A.

  96. 2021 Thursday W: Economic News– The White House is dancing the jig today.  Last week, first-time jobless benefits claims fell from 382,000 the previous week to 360,000 last week.  This is good news?  Atop that we learn that 1.8 million Americans turned down work during the heavy days of the Chi-Vi Wuhan Bat Flu pandemic.
  97. 2022 Friday: This year’s news will appear next year.  Meanwhile, in a couple of weeks, my family and I will be flying to Taipei to vacation on the island of Taiwan.  See you all soon.

[i] We promoted the music of the famed San Francisco, California, rock band, Moby Grape, on Monday, 09-April-2012 through Monday, 23-April-2012.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the legendary British rock band, YES, but when we do, you will be the first to know.  This offering will go as long as- if not longer- than the Beatles and their individual members.   Please stay tuned.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famous acid rock band from Texas- the 13th Floor Elevators- beginning on Tuesday, 14-May-2013 through Thursday, 06-June-2013.  We would encourage everyone to seek the music of this legendary band out and adding it to their collections.  You will be glad you did.

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

[v] See previous footnote.

[vi] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[vii] At the time considered to be a brilliant move on the part of staunch anti-communist Richard M. Nixon, it was a big mistake to normalize any relations with this communist giant when we already had problems with both them and the USSR.  Communist China should have been shunned, stunted, and possibly destroyed.  Look at all the trouble they have caused in the 21st century with all their fetid pandemic diseases created in their biowarfare labs in Wuhan and sent around the world with alacrity. 

[viii] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Mick Abrams, Glenn Cornick and Wild Turkey, Blodwyn Pig, and Paris beginning Monday, May 24, 2021, and the presentation is still ongoing.

[ix] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure beats the hell out of Maroon Five and a homo twit like Adam Levine.  What a loser, he looks like the flipping illustrated man.

President John Quincy Adams; U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Howard Taft; U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Robert H. Jackson; U.S. Secretary of State John Quincy Adams; U.S. Senator Ed Markey; Bon Jovi featuring Richie Sambora, the Grassroots featuring Rob Grill, Leon Spinks (v. Muhammad Ali), “Honky-Tonk Women” by the Rolling Stones, and Thin Lizzy featuring Ricky Warwick:

  1. 155 Friday: The reign of the 10th Roman Catholic Pope St. Pius I ends on this date.  He first became the Vicar of Christ on January 11, 140, and guided his flock on its quest to be one with Christ until today.  His successor- the 11th leader of all Christendom- St. Anicetus- picked up his Holy Cross and carried it forward until April 20, 166.
  2. 1276 Saturday: The reign of the 186th Roman Catholic Pope Adrian V begins on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until August 18 of this year.
  3. 1533 Tuesday: Due to divorcing his wife and establishing the Church of England, Pope Clement VII excommunicates British monarch Henry VIII.
  4. 1742 Wednesday: Condemning the disciplining actions of the Jesuits in China, the 247th Roman Catholic Pope Benedict XIV issues a papal decree against them. 
  5. 1767 Saturday: John Quincy Adams, a future Federalist, then a Democratic-Republican, then a National Republican, then an Anti-Masonic before finally becoming a Whig and future sixth president of the United States, is born in Braintree, Massachusetts.  He would also serve the nation as its 8th U.S. secretary of state.  In this capacity, he would serve under President James Monroe from September 22, 1817, until March 04, 1825.
  6. 1786 Tuesday: Morocco agreed to stop attacking American ships in the Mediterranean Sea for a payment of $10,000.  Up until then, swarms of Arab ships pirated by fanatical Muslim lunatics would attack lone American vessels, rob them of cargo, and enslave the sailors.
  7. 1789 Saturday: The United States Marine Corps was formally established by a congressional act that also created the U.S. Marine Band.
  8. 1798 Wednesday: The U.S. Congress reestablished The United States Marine Corps through the passage of “An Act for Establishing a Marine Corps,” which also created the U.S. Marine Band.  An act passed by the Continental Congress on November 10, 1775, commissioned the Marine Corps originally.  
  9. 1804 Wednesday: Vice President Aaron Burr mortally wounded former Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton during a pistol duel in Weehawken, New Jersey.
  10. 1812 Saturday: During the War of 1812, the United States launches an invasion of Canada across the Detroit Frontier.  Although somewhat successful at first, the Canucks would rally and push back the invaders which made it impossible for the U.S. to incorporate all of Canada into the United States.  Sad.
  11. 1848 Tuesday: In London, England, the Waterloo Train Station opens for business.
  12. 1859 Monday: Big Ben, the great bell inside the London clock tower chimed for the first time.
  13. 1864 Monday: Confederate forces led by General Jubal Early commenced an invasion of Washington, D.C.; however, they retreated the following day due to the arrival of Union reinforcements.  
  14. 1889 Thursday: In Mexico, Tijuana becomes not only a city but an international den of iniquity.  Americans would flock there for the powerful booze, the hot but diseased chicks, and gambling tables.  Que la chingas!
  15. 1905 Tuesday: Black intellectuals in the United States organize the Niagara Movement at Niagara Falls, New York.
  16. 1914 Saturday: Babe Ruth made his Major League Baseball debut, pitching the Boston Red Sox to a 4-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians.
  17. 1915 Sunday: During World War I, the German battle cruiser “Konigsberg,” sinks off Dar-es-Salam, Africa.  Meanwhile, the Chicago Sunday Tribune ran an article titled. “Blues is Jazz and Jazz is Blues.”  (It’s believed to be one of the earliest, if not the earliest uses of the word “jazz” as a musical term in a newspaper).
  18. 1921 Monday: The 10th U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice William Howard Taft (69th overall U.S. Supreme Court justice) assumed his position on the high court on this date.  A former president, President Warren G. Harding nominated his fellow Republican to fill the seat of Chief Justice Edwin Douglass White’s seat.  Taft would serve the nation from today until February 03, 1930.

  20. 1934 Wednesday: President Franklin Delano Roosevelt becomes the first sitting U.S. president to travel through the Panama Canal.  Less than 70 years later, the U.S. would abandon the canal thanks to a treaty engineered by President Jimmy Carter.  Worse, the Chi-Coms would be running the canal on behalf of the Panamanians.
  21. 1937 Sunday: Famed American composer and pianist, George Gershwin died from a brain tumor in a Los Angeles hospital at age 38 on this date.
  22. 1941 Friday: The 82nd U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Robert H. Jackson assumed his position on the nation’s high court on this date.  President Franklin Delano Roosevelt nominated his fellow Democrat to fill the seat of Associate Justice Harlan F. Stone.  Jackson served from today until October 09, 1954. 
  23. 1943 Sunday: During World War II, the U.S. 45th Division captures the airport at Comiso, Sicily; however, the German Hermann Goering Panzer Division launches a stiff counterattack.  Meanwhile, in the USSR, the Battle of Kursk enters its seventh day as the Axis throws everything it has against the Soviet defenses while the Soviets repeatedly counterattack.
  24. 1944 Tuesday: President Franklin Delano Roosevelt announces he will run for a fourth term.   Of course, many Americans are horrified at the idea, especially since they were appalled at his third run.  NO American president had ever run for more than two terms in the White House because President George Washington did NOT run for more than two terms.  Still, World War II was continuing, and many were fearful of ‘changing horses in the middle of the stream.’
  25. 1946 Thursday: In Malden, Massachusetts, future U.S. senator representing his home state, Ed Markey, Democrat, is born.  He would enter the U.S. Senate on July 16, 2013, and would prove to be one of the worst, far-left liberal lunatic senators in the once august body.  Worse, to keep a grip on his seat, he would side with nuts like Sandy Cortez, the dingbat from New York.  
  26. 1948 Sunday: During the War of Independence, the Arabs bombard Jerusalem from the air.  This would lead to the Israelis lighting up Cairo.
  27. 1952 Friday: General Dwight D. Eisenhower is nominated for the GOP presidential candidate at the Republican National Convention and Richard M. Nixon for vice president.
  28. 1953 Saturday: Leon Spinks, heavyweight boxer famous for beating Muhammad Ali, was born on this date in St. Louis, Missouri.  Over the course of his professional career, he would compile a record of 46 fights, 26 wins (14 KOs) 17 losses, and no  draws.
  29. 1954 Sunday: The first White Citizens Council organizes in Indianola, Mississippi.
  30. 1955 Monday: The U.S. Congress authorizes all United States money to bear the inscription, “In God We Trust.”  Meanwhile at Lowry, Colorado, military authorities dedicated the U.S. Air Force Academy.
  31. 1959 Saturday: In Perth Amboy, New Jersey, future longtime guitarist with Bon Jovi- Richie Sambora- is born.  He would also pursue a solo career.
  32. 1960 Monday: The novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee was first published by J.B. Lippincott and Company.  
  33. 1962 Wednesday: The first transatlantic TV transmission went through the Telstar I satellite.
  34. 1966 Monday: In Northern Ireland, future lead guitarist and vocalist, Ricky Warwick, with the Anglo-Irish American hard rock band, Thin Lizzy[i], is born.  He would perform with the group from 2010 to the present.
  35. 1969 Friday: The Rolling Stones[ii] release the single, “Honky-tonk Women.”  When fans heard it on the radio, they went insane over it, so great was the song with its lyrics about loose women, altered states of mind, and its clattering cowbell, sales soared almost immediately.  We hope everyone seeks this tune and the album on which it appeared, “The Rolling Stones Greatest Hits, Volume 2 Through the Past Darkly” out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music.
  36. 1972 Tuesday: The World Chess Championship opened as grandmasters Bobby Fischer of the United States and defending champion Boris Spassky of the Soviet Union began play in Reykjavik, Iceland.  After 21 games, Fischer won the championship.
  37. 1975 Friday: Chinese archaeologists discover a three-acre burial site with more than 6,000 clay statues of warriors dating as early as 221 B.C.  NO one knows who created them or left them there.  Some speculate space aliens had a hand in it.
  38. 1977 Monday: In a White House ceremony, President Jimmy Carter awarded the Medal of Freedom posthumously to Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.
  39. 1979 Wednesday: The abandoned U.S. space station Skylab made a spectacular return to Earth, burning up in the atmosphere and showering debris over the Indian Ocean and Australia.
  40. 1985 Thursday: Nolan Ryan of the Houston Astros became the first major league pitcher to record 4,000 strikeouts in a career.  Ryan began the game with 3,993 strikeouts, seven shy of 4,000.  He struck out New York Mets player Danny Heep at the beginning of the 6th inning and then struck out the two subsequent batters to give himself 4,002 strikeouts.  You go, Nolan, you go. [iii]
  41. 1987 Saturday: Bo Jackson signed a contract to play football for the Los Angeles Raiders for five years while continuing to play baseball for the Kansas City Royals.
  42. 1988 Monday: Nine people were killed when suspected Palestinian gunmen attacked hundreds of tourists aboard a Greek cruise ship, the City of Poros, which was steaming toward a marina in suburban Athens.
  43. 1991 Thursday: In Hawaii, the people witness a total solar eclipse.  (My family and I were there!  Chef Cheryl La Tigre).
  44. 1995 Tuesday: The U.N.-designated “safe haven” of Srebrenica in Bosnia-Herzegovina fell to Bosnian Serb forces that then carried out the killings of 8,000 Muslim men and boys.  Elsewhere, full diplomatic relations resumed between the U.S. and Vietnam.  
  45. 1995 Tuesday: A U.S. Air Force jet flew over the Antarctic and dropped off emergency medical supplies for Dr. Jerri Nelson after she had discovered a lump in her breast.  She was working at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Research Center.
  46. 2005 Monday: In Xinjiang province in western China, a mine explosion kills at least 22 miners while another 35 were rescued.  Sadly, another 30 or so are still missing. Most likely, these lost miners were Uighur slaves, imprisoned unfairly by a harsh communist regime.  We believe the Chi-Coms to be Nationalist Socialists, i.e., Nazis, because they are seeking to conquer the world, to have a slave-based culture, and to exterminate those with whom they disagree: religious minorities, ethnicities, and other societal misfits, i.e., homosexuals, the disabled, and the mentally deficient.
  47. 2006 Tuesday: As Israel continues weathering criticism about how badly the Palestinians are supposedly treated says that there are not food shortages or medicine shortages even though the terminals supplying the Gaza Strip are under constant threat of attack nearly every day by terrorists.  The Hamas thugs want the people to suffer so they can then point to them, “See!  See!  The Israelis are mean to us, wah, wah, wah!”
  48. 2007 Wednesday: The Supreme Court of Libya upholds the death sentences of six Bulgarian nurses and one Palestinian doctor who had been tried and convicted of deliberately infecting more than 400 children with HIV-AIDS.  Who the f**k would do something as despicable as this?
  49. 2008 Friday: The Chi-Com authorities inform restaurant owners in Beijing NOT to serve any dog meat on its menus during the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics but donkey meat and other exotics like bats and scorpions are fine.  Enjoy.  (In 2020 when Xi Jinping let the bat flu loose upon the world, they had the nerve to point fingers at the Wuhan wet market when in fact, it came out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology).
  50. 2009 Saturday: U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama addresses the parliament of the nation of Ghana today.
  51. 2010 Sunday: Colton Harris-Moore, the so-called “Barefoot Bandit,” is apprehended by the authorities in the Bahamas.   Elsewhere, in Kampala, Uganda, Al-Shabab carries out a terrorist bombing after pledging its loyalty to al-Qaida that kills at least 64 poor souls and messes up the lives of numerous others.
  52. 2011 Monday:  The Republic of Korea announces plans to conduct midair refueling drills with the U.S. Air Force in 2011.  Meanwhile, in Mt. Dora, Florida, long-time member of the Grass Roots[iv]— Rob Grill (lead vocals/bass 1967-77 / 1980-2011)—dies from complications of a stroke; he was just 67 years old.  Elsewhere, the Knesset in Israel announces a law that will punish any Israeli citizen or organization that boycotts Jewish settlements in the West Bank.  Bravo for you!
  53. 2012 Wednesday:  Astronomers announce the discovery of the fifth moon of Pluto S/2012 P1.  Meanwhile, the GOP-controlled U.S. House of Representatives in another show of bravado but which is little more than an empty exercise votes for the 33rd time to repeal President Barack Hussein Obama’s signature achievement, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka the PPACA or Obamacare for short.  Wow.  Waste time doing nothing you losers.
  54. 2013 Thursday: The NASA New Horizons team release photos of Pluto’s largest moon, Chiron, showing that it is the size of Texas and covered in ice.  Elsewhere, exiled Iranians produce information for the global press that shows the IRG thugs have nuclear facilities buried beneath a mountain near the town of Damavand.  Time to drop some bunker-busting nukes on the site.
  55. 2014 Friday: LeBron James, former member of the Miami Heat, announces he will return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, the town he abandoned several years earlier, so he could win an NBA ring in Miami.  Elsewhere, after a dispute with Iraq’s Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki goes unresolved, Kurdish members of parliament bolt the government and return home where the Peshmerga takes control of two northern oil fields.
  56. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Greece continues negotiations with its creditors after refusing proposed austerity measures; however, the Greek government proposal includes reforms like those rejected by voters in a recent referendum.  Elsewhere, Boko Haram continues causing problems in the African nation of Chad, particularly in the nation’s capital city of N’Djamena.  A terrorist dressed in a burqa detonates a bomb that delivers at least 14 people kicking and screaming to hang with Allah far sooner than any of them planned while leaving loads more wishing they have gone, too.  What the hell is wrong with these savages?  Others of their ilk attack Maiduguri in Nigeria, killing at least one person and leaving others injured.
  57. 2016 Monday:  The governor of Nagaland, India, announces a ban on all dog meat sold as food.  Up until now, the people of this distant Indian state imported dogs as a delicacy.  From this point forward, it must stop.  Good for them.  Now, if ONLY the Chinese would follow suit and close their infamous wet markets where plague after plague after plague emanates.  Meanwhile, the U.S. says it’s going to send an additional 500 troops to clean up President Barack Hussein Obama’s mess in Iraq what with the ISIS garbage running amok.
  58. 2017 Tuesday: Emails released by Donald Trump Jr. revealed that he’d been told before meeting with a Russian attorney during the presidential campaign that the Russian government had information that could “incriminate” Hillary Clinton.  MSNBC “Morning Joe” (a pitiful show if ever one existed with two morons for the price of one hosting it) and former Republican (RINO) Rep. Joe Scarborough announced that he was leaving the Republican Party (good riddance), partly because of its loyalty to President Donald J. Trump.  Joe, you were never a Republican in the first place, merely a traitorous POS. 
  59. 2018 Wednesday: Always having to outdo everyone else, communist China claims to have discovered in the western part of the country where the Uighurs live the oldest stone tools outside Africa.  Estimated to be around 2.12 million years ago, made by early hominids.  Elsewhere, near the Afghan town of Kunduz, the Taliban carries out an attack on Afghan police killing at least 29 of them and wounding loads of others.
  60. 2019 Thursday: In Pueblo, Mexico, the final Volkswagen Beetles roll off the assembly line, a line of cars that began 80 years earlier.  Meanwhile, thanks to the economic mastery of President Donald J. Trump, the Stock Market hits new peaks what with the DOW Jones Industrial Average surpassing 27,000 points and the S&P 500 hitting 3,000 points.  Keep it up, Mr. President, keep it up.  Meanwhile, Tommy Robison, famed British conservative freedom fighter, receives a prison sentence of nine months in the slammer for contempt of court minus 10 weeks-time served.  His supporters protest in the streets.
  61. 2020 Saturday: 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, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 12,507,849 confirmed cases, UP 134,127, 560,460 confirmed deaths, UP 3,597, and 6,890,914 confirmed recoveries, UP 104,718.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 3,290,994 confirmed cases, UP 75,920 new cases, 136,621 confirmed deaths, UP 912, and 970,345 confirmed recoveries, UP 15,107.  Next, in the three states where 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: 304,297 confirmed cases, 6,851 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 1,130 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 840 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 39,218 confirmed cases, 1,424 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 187,538,384 confirmed cases, +350,136, 4,046,908 confirmed deaths, +5,921 and 171,449,408 confirmed recoveries, +341,307.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,731,593 confirmed cases, UP 8,046 from yesterday’s reporting, 622,845 confirmed deaths, UP 35,[v] and 29,242,181 confirmed recoveries, UP 8,469.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 304,485 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 154,710 deaths

  67. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.312 per gallon, $3.007 in Florida, $4.046 in Hawaii, and $3.830 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- West Virginia: $3.045.  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- Mexico: $4.217 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,509,948,392,347 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Brazil, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Switzerland with $256 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.
  68. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day #110 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be holding this gig and her 16th day since her one and only visit to the El Paso Sector, perhaps among the quietest places on the border.  Anyhow, here are the stats as presented by One America News today as to the magnitude of both the extent of the illegal alien invasion and its cost for the American people.  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the infestation of illegal aliens: $702,955,520.  Next, (2) here is the cost this year of caring for the human refuse flowing across the border this year: $210,018,074,624.  Third, here are the numbers for illegals who have snuck their way across the border and into the United States this year alone: 2,152,517.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the massive numbers of illegals in the country as of this day: 36,152,516.  As everyone knows who has followed our website since its inception back in early 2009, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day estimated back then- 12 years ago- the number to be around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers to be closer to 75-100 million.  We must round up this garbage and bulldoze it back across the border into Mexico just as we must lay in minefields, razor wire along the banks of the Rio Grande and down its center just north of the dividing line between drug-infested Mexico and the United States.  We also must lay in razor wire across the deserts just as we must dig and maintain all manner of obstacles and trenches with which to stymie the invasion forces.  Some of us believe we should seed the Rio Grande with alligator pups or piranha fish.  We must seed the dry land with as many rattlesnakes and other poisonous reptiles so we can halt the tidal wave of illegals flooding our country.  If we don’t, the country will be lost and the Third World will be running the show.  Meanwhile, Arizona border officials apprehend more than 100 illegal aliens dumped along the border without any sorts of supplies to keep them from dying in the desert.
  69. 2021 Sunday G: Political News I– At CPAC 2021 in Dallas, Texas, Donald Trump Jr. slams CNN for being a spewer of FAKE NEWS as well as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and crack-addicted and known pedophile, Hunter Biden.  Light ‘em up, we say.  Meanwhile, prior to coming to CPAC, himself, President Donald J. Trump received a huge warm welcome in Las Vegas, Nevada.   Upon his arrival in Dallas and taking the stage, the 45th president gave a barnburner of a speech in which he made it extremely clear: he is fighting on behalf of the American people.  God bless him.  Moving on, House Republicans are requesting an investigation into COVID-19 fraud.  Finally, Fort Pelosi is coming down as fencing surrounding the U.S. Capitol is being hauled away today.  Wow.
  70. 2021 Sunday H: Human-Caused Disasters– The cost to replace a collapsed bridge in Washington, D.C., will cost $25 million.  Is it not amazing how our own capital’s infrastructure is in dire straits?  Elsewhere, the death toll in the Surfside, Florida, condo collapse has now hit 90.  Speaking of Florida, the Miami-Dade County courthouse in the Miami has been shut down over structural integrity concerns.  Meanwhile, the Oregon Bootleg Fire doubles in size since Friday.
  71. 2021 Sunday I: Moron News I– “Kooky Kamala” Harris is our subject for today’s Moron News.  Every time this tittering crow, this laughing jackal, this shrieking hyena, this gibbering phony opens her mouth, something surprising spills out like fecal matter does a starling’s ass.  Whining and crying about states cleaning up their voting laws and cleansing the rolls of dead voters, illegal alien voters, felons, and others unqualified to vote, she said that people living in rural communities will have challenging times sending in mail-in ballots because folks living in these areas lack…’photocopiers?’  What the hell is wrong with this nattering jaybird, this cackling toad, this prating POS?  Every time she opens her mouth, she provides the answer to anyone considering using the 25th Amendment to get Methuselah out of the White House as to WHY they can’t.  She is as stupid as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, known to some as AOC.
  72. 2021 Sunday J: Sports News I– In Game 3 of the 2021 NBA Finals, the Milwaukee Bucks come roaring back and beat the Phoenix Suns 120-100.  The Suns lead the series 2 games to 1.
  73. 2022 Monday:  We hope today will be a slow news day.  Stick around and discover the news along with us…

1945 Tuesday: German U-Boat U-530 surfaces south of Buenos Aires, Argentina, a submarine that had gone missing after the German surrender.

  60. 2013 Wednesday: Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokar Tsarnaev appears for the first time in court since his arrest on April 19; he pleads guilty to 30 charges including using a weapon of mass destruction.   Elsewhere, famed Russian pro-democracy freedom fighter Alexei Navalny and Vladimir Putin’s worst nightmare registers to stand for the mayorship of Moscow in September’s elections.  Meanwhile, in communist China’s Sichuan province, a rain-triggered mudslide buries between 30 to 40 poor souls.
  61. 2014 Thursday: Labor unions of workers in the public sector went on strike across the U.K. to protest wage increases below the rate of inflation; unions claim that over one million workers participated.  Elsewhere, the BBC reports that Hamas trash circulating photos of ‘Israeli atrocities on innocent Palestinian denizens of the Gaza Strip’ are actually photos collected from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, many of them as old as five years.  Once again, you see the depths to which, these scumbags will go to tarnish the reputations of the Israelis.  Shame on them.
  62. 2015 Friday: After a state law enacted its removal, the state of South Carolina removes the Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds.  Many see the flag as racist and following the assault on the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church that saw nine parishioners murdered by a white racist, the state had had enough.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of State blasts Thailand for its decision to deport a bunch of Uighur Muslims back to Xinjiang Province where the Chi-Coms are running amok in their persecutions of Muslims and other ethnic and religious minorities.
  63. 2016 Sunday: Due to the shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile by white cops in two separate incidents, racial unrest, protest marches, riots, and other social upheaval continue.  Both men were shot while complying with the commands of law enforcement.  Meanwhile, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton announces that she favors adding a ‘public option’ to Obamacare.  Elsewhere, Hamza bin Laden, son of jihadist Osama bin Laden, says a ‘genocide’ is coming to the U.S. due to the Obama administration whacking the elder POS.  Finally, allegations of sexual misconduct continue to mount against Fox News Channel’s Roger Ailes.
  64. 2017 Monday: Famed ‘transgender rights activist’ Betty Dukes dies at age 67.  As an American employee of Walmart, she fought against discrimination case against trannys in 2001, Betty Dukes v. Walmart.  Elsewhere, the government of Iraq announces that the final positions of ISIS thugs in Mosul have been conquered and the scumbag jihadists either captured or killed.  Meanwhile, doctors in communist China report that Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo is in ‘grave, grave condition.’  Yup, most likely because YOU put him there.
  65. 2018 Tuesday: The rescue of the trapped boys and their coach in the caves at Tham Luong Nang Non ends as rescuers bring out the final four boys and their coach.  During the rescue attempt, one Thai military diver died.  Elsewhere, reformers in Iran take to the streets after IRIB TV-1 shows a film of young Iranian social media users tearfully apologizing and begging for forgiveness from the morality thug police appears.  What were the young people’s crimes?  They were promoting some dance moves.  Shame on them!
  66. 2019 Wednesday: After cables between the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. and London suddenly appear in the news, cables in which, the British ambassador to the U.S. Sir Kim Darroch lambastes President Donald J. Trump for being ‘inept,’ among other things, the ambassador returns home in shame.  Speaking of the Brits, however, they have problems in the Persian Gulf as three IRGC swift boats attempt to commandeer a British oil tanker, the British Heritage.  However, a Royal Navy vessel, the HMS Montrose, warns the Iranian scum away from the tanker and thus they vacate as fast as their engines can propel them.  You should have sunk the maggots.
  67. 2020 Friday: U.S. Customs and Border Protection, aka CBP, reports that arrests of illegal aliens along the open parts of the U.S. southern border with Mexico were up 40% in June.  We say, “Build the wall and deport them all.”  Meanwhile average polling of the presidential matchup shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is leading President Donald J. Trump by 49.6% to 40.8%.  Finally, tropical storm Fay threatens to hammer New York City.   Perhaps if it slams the city, there won’t be as much violence this weekend as there was last week.

  71. 2020 Friday D: Less than a week before Roger Stone was to report to federal prison to serve his 3.5-year-stretch for being a friend of the commander-in-chief, President Donald J. Trump commuted his sentence to time served which drove the insane leftists berserk.  Meanwhile, the CEO of Goya Foods. Robert Unanue says he won’t back down upon having been at the White House the day prior and complimented the president on a job well done.  Good for you!

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 304,450 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 154,745 deaths

[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.970.  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- Ivory Coast: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon. [xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,506,094,235,480 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 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.
  78. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By the count of the AICPENDBLOG.COM, today is Day No. 109 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the unfolding border calamity and her 15th day since her first and only visit to the border.  Has she done anything?  Nope.  We’ve seen nothing.  Meanwhile, One America News presented the daily cost of the illegal alien invasion as well as the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals.  Are you ready?  Here we go: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the infestation of invaders: $585,654,656.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, the addicted, wounded veterans, and Americans devastated by harsh Chi-Vi lockdowns?  It would be transformational.  Next, (2) Total Cost of caring for the detritus of the Third World this year: $208,804,888,576.  Moving on, (3) Estimated number of illegals who have entered the United States this year: 2,140,083.  Finally, (4) CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens running amok in the United States: 36,140,084. [xxiii] (Sources for OAN: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  79. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that the Big Tech case will frame the law moving forward for the 21st century.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump calls on Senate Republicans to stop negotiating on infrastructure.  Amen.  It’s a Trojan horse.   Elsewhere, in Charlottesville, Virginia, statues of Confederate icons Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson are being removed today.  How sad.  Meanwhile, new reports suggest that female staffers on Capitol Hill are still lagging behind their male counterparts when it comes to salaries.  Democrats- aren’t YOU in charge?
  80. 2021 Saturday H: Political News II– In other news, ramshackle Joe Biden continues taking flak over his plan to send the Joestapo door to door to check on people’s vaccination status.  Wow.  Add to that the fact that he cannot even remember the name of his own, hand-picked Health and Human Services secretary (and California’s shame) Xavier Becerra and one can see disaster unfolding.  Besides, Secretary Becerra is taking all kinds of heat for suggesting the government has the RIGHT TO KNOW the vaccine status of ALL U.S. citizens while not giving a flying f**k about the illegal aliens the administration is distributing around the country.
  81. 2021 Saturday I: Political News III– Illinois is becoming the first state to order teaching of Asian-American history to all students.  Oh, boy, do some chest-thumping there, Governor J.B. Pritzker!  In other news, fencing around Capitol Hill reportedly is coming down six months after the Democrats’ FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.   Elsewhere, a judge blocks Tennessee’s new law requiring public bathrooms to post notices regarding trannys entering them.  Now, the notices cannot appear as it’s somehow discriminatory against confused individuals believing themselves to be something they are NOT.  Finally, a growing number of Democrats are growing fearful that their party has become too WOKE.  (Note- you can add me to the list- Chef Bea O’Malley).
  82. 2021 Saturday J: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have Super Lotto and Powerball.  The Super Lotto Draw #3576 has a $62 million pot on the line.  The Powerball Draw #862 has a $127 million pot on the line.  Stick around and find out the results for both.  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw: 09, 11, 15, 27, 30, and Mega 25.  Out of 136,746 winning tickets, the highest winners were ONE person who had FIVE NUMBERS plus the Mega for a prize of $62,000,000.  That ticket was sold at Tori Liquor in Van Nuys, CA 91405.

[xxiii] Our original blog began back in 2009 and by 2010- when we realized the Chi-Coms were spying on us at the Choseit.com blogsite, we went to Google in late summer 2010 and we estimated then that the numbers of illegal aliens in the country was then between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers of illegal aliens running amok in our great country is between 75-100 million.  What other country would not respond militarily to an invasion such as this?  We believe that we must lay in minefields along the entire southern border, that we must build anti-personnel, anti-vehicular, and anti-vessel traps, we also must lay in foo gas pits, barbed wire, seed the area with rattlesnakes and alligator pups, put in snipers to shoot the traffickers through their heads as they ply the waters of the Rio Grande.  We believe we must imprison every U.S. citizen caught helping illegal aliens for 20 years to start. We must heavily tax all monies flowing out of the U.S. at between 90-95-percent and we believe we must send employers and landlords to prison for helping illegal aliens.  It is rapidly becoming us or them.  -Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

190. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JULY 09, 2022

2018 Monday: President Donald J. Trump announces his second pick for the U.S. Supreme Court: Brett Kavanaugh. In order to take the seat of his mentor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Kavanaugh would have to undergo one of the most grueling confirmation processes heretofore seen in recent times in this country. Eventually, he would persevere but the Democrats in the U.S. Senate did everything imaginable to destroy this excellent jurist. God bless you, Justice Kavanaugh.

  68. 2020 Thursday C: On the final day of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term, the high court handed down two decisions, both regarding President Donald J. Trump.  First, in Trump v. Vance (Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.  
  69. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look.  WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment.

[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Vermont: $3.046.  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- Burkina Faso: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon. [xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,502,613,982,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 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.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here we are, Day No. 170 for the Biden regime to have usurped power from the rightful president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 108 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, aka the gibbering jackal, aka the screeching banshee, aka the tittering orangutan to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border.  Today is also 14 days since her first and last visit to the border and we don’t expect to see her back at the border until President Donald J. Trump visits the region again.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the stats for the illegal alien calamity for which the Biden regime bears 150-percent responsibility as presented by One America News channel: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the riffraff crossing the southern border: $570,053,440.  Next, here are the costs of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens this year (2): $207,693,398,016.  Next, (3) this is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year: 2,128,691.  Finally, (4) Total Number of illegal aliens estimated to be roaming the country: 36,128,692.  Note- this is a conservative effort as we at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have as far back as 2009 when our blog underwent founding believe the number then was between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the truer number of illegal aliens lurking in America’s shadows is closer to 75-100 million.  Time to round them up and to begin deporting this human fecal matter back to whence they came.   If we want to keep the brats, let’s put them into military academies and then use them to fight Third World regime change wars.
  78. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Following the brutal assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, at least two Americans are among the 17 suspected assassins scooped up by Haitian law enforcement.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse as they normally do in Haiti, Port-au-Prince is begging that the United States send them troops to help them quell the violence.  Time for ‘Papa Doc’ and the Ton-Ton Macoute to come back and restore order, i.e., maybe a little bit of cannibalism will get everyone back in line?
  79. 2021 Friday I: Joe Biden News I– Slobbering Joe Biden is pushing Russia’s Vladimir Putin to do something about hacking U.S. companies.  Next, decrepit old Joe has nominated failed Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti to become the next U.S. ambassador to India.  Next, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece told him to fire holdover from the Trump presidency, Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul after he refused to resign.  Apparently, Democrats and their allied hacks in labor unions and advocates for welfare despised the guy and he had to go.  Thus he did.  C’est la vie.
  80. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Democratic leaders are doing what they do best and that is threatening another long, sweltering summer of unmitigated violence.  I say, ‘we give it to them!’ Next, the first group to appear before House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘January 06, 2021, Select Committee’ will be Capitol Hill law enforcement officers when the panel begins.  These cops- under control of Speaker “Mumbles”- will be the first panel to dance to Pelosi’s jig.  Will they be the ones we have seen on film welcoming protesters and directing them as to where to go inside the U.S. Capitol on that day?  We expect the False Flag Operation orchestrated by the nonagenarian speaker and her cohorts will be evident for what it is: a load of hooey.
  81. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Lt. General Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., is endorsing Vernon Jones in his bid to unseat extremely unpopular RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, he reacted angrily to the BS flowing out of the White House regarding the state’s cleaning up of its voting system and said that ‘BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lying about the Peach State’s changes to its voting laws.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, is back to beating a dead horse, “Medicare for All.”  Enough already, “Pucker Puss.”
  82. 2021 Friday L: Political News III– Former governor and UN ambassador under President Donald J. Trump, Nikki Haley, put forth two endorsements today (not that they matter) in two gubernatorial races in the nation.  First, in New Jersey, she has endorsed Republican Jack Ciattarelli and in Virginia, Republican Glenn Youngkin.  We shall see what happens.  Oh, President Donald J. Trump calls Virginia Democratic-Socialist candidate Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe a ‘political hack.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s rushed withdrawal from Afghanistan that it reignites the fears of the terrorists coming here.
  83. 2021 Friday M: Political News IV– In other political news, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that ‘buyers of Hunter Biden’s ‘art’ will remain ANONYMOUS.  Folks, can you fathom what would happen if say Baron Trump was painting artworks and selling them for hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars?  Ye gods, folks, there would be so many investigations on Capitol Hill that all other work of government would come to a screeching halt so every moment of every waking day could be spent investigation such an outrage.  Yet, when crack-headed pedophile Hunter Biden does it, it’s NO big deal.  Retribution is coming folks and it’s going to hit the Democrats like a tidal wave beginning this September when California boots Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  The big day is September 14.  EVERYONE VOTE.
  84. 2021 Friday N: Moron News I– We haven’t had any Moron News lately but little Sandy Cortez, aka “The Fly,” aka “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” aka “AOC,” is blaming fossil fuel executives for flooded New York City subways.  That’s like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, blaming the horrible forest fire in northern California on ‘global warming,’ aka ‘climate change,’ aka ‘extreme weather,’ or whatever other moniker they choose to put on it when it’s failure to clean the forests and to continue building water infrastructure so that when crises hit- like the ongoing drought- water is available to offset it.  Both Sandy Cortez and “Nazi” Newsom are MORONS.  At least, California is going to get him out on September 14 (unless, of course, the ‘fix is in’ which it might be).  As for AOC and her subways, Baby Girl- if I can call you that- the reason the subways are flooded is because NYC is spending money on social re-engineering projects instead of doing what must be done and that is to maintain and improve existing infrastructure.  God knows there’s more than enough tax dollars in both the city and in the Empire State.
  85. 2021 Friday O: Federal and State Court News– North Dakota is suing the Biden regime over its cancelation of new fossil fuel contracts on public lands.  Good.  Sue the heck out of them.
  86. 2021 Friday P: Fake News I– John King of CNN- pompous, conceited ass- is upset by Alabama GOP Senate candidate Jessica Taylor’s new ad in which a rocket ‘launches’ liberal ideas and values into space and she mispronounces the name of our ‘esteemed “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  The fake news-spouting hack called the ad ‘VILE!’  Ah, wah, wah, wah, John, STFU.  Ms. Taylor is in the running to replace retiring Senator Richard Shelby.
  87. 2021 Friday Q: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump endorses former secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior Ryan Zinke in his bid to return to Congress from the great state of Montana.
  88. 2021 Friday R: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stay tuned for the results of Mega Millions Draw #1675 with a $94 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers for tonight’s draw: 06, 37, 39, 41, 46, and Mega 17.  Out of 52,071 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $14,270.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 303,202 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.

  64. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.305 per gallon, $3.011 in Florida, $4.025 in Hawaii, and $3.805 in Washington state. [xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Texas: $2.803.  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- Ghana: $4.147 per U.S. Gallon. [xvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,491,058,471,082 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Japan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is communist China with $1,041,000,000 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  65. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 105 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 11 since her first and only visit to the quiet sector of El Paso, Texas, where she conducted a photo op.  Next, here are the updated statistics on the illegal alien invaders as presented by One America News: first, (1) Cost this Day of caring for the ILLEGAL ALIENS: $509,132,544.  Incredible.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the flotsam and jetsam of humanity: $204,344,803,328.  Imagine what that money could do for the American people?  Amazing.  Still, it goes to illegal alien criminals.  Next, (3) estimated number of illegals who have entered the United States this year: 2,0994,370.  Finally, (4) estimated number of illegals in the country, a conservative number: 36,094,368.  We believe and said so back in 2009 when the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day tapped out its first keystrokes that back then, there were between 35-50 million river-swimming, border-hopping, visa-overstaying POS in the country whereas now, a true estimate of illegal aliens in the country in our view is between 75-100 million.  Time for Operation Wetback II, time to round them up, pile them aboard derelict freighters, boxcars, buses, 747 Max liners, even into automobiles and send them back to whence the f**k they came.  It is ‘us’ or it’s ‘them.’  There is no middle ground.
  66. 2021 Tuesday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– In other border-related news, a new Democrat bill, perhaps the infrastructure bill or whatever else will provide NO funds for continued building of the southern border wall and will remove funding from Customs and Border Protection which will effectively 86 our border security.   Still, Biden backers are worried over the potential fallout coming from slobbering Joe Biden’s proposed reopening of the borders.  Over what borders?  The southern one is wide open.
  67. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Although the writings on the wall, the Afghan government is calling up hundreds of troops with which to do battle with the Taliban.  Meanwhile, as we predicted a couple of days back, the Chi-Coms are looking to expand their reach into the war-torn, barbaric nation.  We expect the Russians, the Chi-Coms, and the Iranians may carve out enclaves in which, they can rape the hellhole of whatever resources exist there like, uh, opium, the Chi-Coms can then sell to narcoterrorists and drug-traffickers for export to the U.S.  (Note- we hope the Chi-Coms and Russkies get embroiled in a 40-year-war there).  The Taliban is trying to ‘clean up their image’ as they compete for power in the void left by the U.S. withdrawal.  (Note- no more stoning women, lopping off heads, hands, and other body parts, no more child rape, no more skinning captives alive?  Truly?  We shall see).
  68. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Iran’s ‘Israel Doomsday Clock,’ the countdown to Armageddon and the annihilation of the world’s sole Jewish state went dark when Tehran ran out of power.  What a bunch of losers.  In other foreign/overseas news, Beijing stooges arrest nine pro-democracy Hong Kongese over ‘possible terrorist activities’ meaning they stand for FREEDOM.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Rep. Diana Harshbarger, R-TN 1st CD, says it is imperative that we pull our supply chains home from communist China.  Amen.  In other Chi-Com-related news, New Zealand Chi-Com specialist professor Anne-Marie Brady of the University of Canterbury was booted from Twitter after lampooning Chi-Com Xi Jinping.  Wow.  That’s all that is required to get the boot is to make fun of the communist dingleberry?  Whoa.  (You know, if the Chi-Coms want to drop a couple million on us, we’ll say cordial things about the dictator).
  69. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Israel and South Korea plan to swap 700,000 Chi-Vi vaccines.  Meanwhile, the CDC is appealing “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis’ lifting of the lockdowns on cruise ships which are already out at sea.  CDC, f**k off.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden is unhappy that his promised rate of vaccinations for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu is way down so he is making proposals such as sending people door to door to remind people to get their shots just as he is seeking to have lab techs on job sites dishing out injections as well as paid days off so people will get their vaccinations.  (Note- no one in my family or any of our employees will be getting a ‘jab,’ not until the vaccines are cleared for GENERAL USE and the manufacturers are stripped of qualified immunity so if- God forbid- someone in our family or on our staff has a problem, we can sue them.  -Chef Bea O’Malley).
  70. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Eric Adams has finally been declared the winner of the contested New York City Democratic Party primary race.  They were trying to steal the election from him so they could bestow it on crazed, cop-hating Maya Wiley.  Congratulations, Mr. Adams.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump calls on swing states to enact REAL ELECTION REFORM.  Every state and territory must do this so we can maintain free elections.  Period.
  71. 2021 Tuesday L: Joe Biden News I– A new poll says that a whopping 57-percent (32-percent of Democrats, 84-percent Republicans) do not believe that slobbering Joe Biden is running the show.  (Note- you can add me to that number and Earl Tiberius, too- we think Xi Jinping is running the show and the enfeebled Joe Biden is dancing to his jig).
  72. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News I– Rep. Jackie “The Jackass” Speier, DS-CA 14th CD, is urging her boss, senile old Joe Biden to respond in a timely manner to the Russian and Chi-Com cyberattacks.  Old Joe acts as though he has no clue as to what century it is in which, the old coot lives.  Speaking of cyberattacks, it would appear that the Russkies have breached the RNC.  Elsewhere, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah Jones has ‘withdrawn’ her quest for tenure at the University of North Carolina (because UNC did not offer it) and instead is going to take her ludicrous 1619 Project to Howard University.
  73. 2021 Tuesday N: Political News II– We learn today that the possible shooter of Ashli Babbitt on January 06, 2021, in the U.S. Capitol is Capitol Hill Police Lt. Michael Byrd.  Attorney Terrell Roberts in a Fox interview last month alluded to the fact that this officer- IF he is the actual killer of Ms. Babbitt- is the same cop who left his loaded firearm in a public restroom on Capitol Hill back in 2019.  Other sources such as Capitol Hill Sergeant at Arms Timothy Blodgett confirmed this in separate testimony as to what happened that day.  Apparently, Lt. Byrd has issues with keeping track of his firearm and now- if he is confirmed to be the shooter- has no trouble with stepping forward and shooting an unarmed woman climbing through a window.  She was given NO warning but was just shot dead.  Many believe that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered that a certain amount of violence had to occur during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION and that Ms. Babbitt- for whatever reason- was the one culled from the herd and shot.  We await confirmation of this terrible tragedy and also wait for the officer to undergo charging.
  74. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– Apparently, the White House is holding ‘informal talks’ with non-governmental Republicans (?) to see if he can somehow get his crackpot Green New Deal ‘infrastructure plan’ pushed through to completion.  Still, a ‘bipartisan’ group in the House is backing a $1.2 trillion infrastructure package.  Speaking of this BS package, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell promises a ‘hell of a fight’ over the infrastructure package.
  75. 2021 Tuesday P: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– This morning, POS attorney Michael Avenatti launched a request for a new trial regarding his conviction in the Nike extortion case the government prosecuted against him with success.  He says that evidence was withheld by federal prosecutors so as to get a conviction.  Unfortunately for Mr. Avenatti, his request was DENIED.   Meanwhile, Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Trevor Bauer is not expected back anytime soon seeing as how he stands accused of sexual assault.  In other news, reports continue hitting the news cycle showing that Trump supporters being held in the D.C. slammer for their part in the January 06, 2021, FALSE FLAG operation put in motion by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD are being physically assaulted, abused, and mistreated by their jailers.  They are subjected to the kinds of punishments one might find in a Beijing slammer.  This is un-American, criminal, immoral, and flat-out wrong.  Finally, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Bouldin says that anyone concerned about rising crime is…wait for it…a WHITE SUPREMACIST.  Wow.[xviii]
  76. 2021 Tuesday Q: NASA, Space, and UFO News– A new Pew Poll says that 65-percent of Americans believe that aliens exist (and why would they not?  IF anything, bacteria, viruses, fungi, algae, and other parasites exist across the entire Universe which is why diseases like the Black Death, Ebola virus, and HIV-AIDS show up unannounced.
  77. 2021 Tuesday R: Sports News I– ESPN has benched sidelines reporter Rachel Nichols from the NBA Finals beginning tonight because of a tweet that just so happened to pop up from 2020 in which Nichols said the only reason why Maria Taylor was chosen over her to cover last year’s finals was because of her skin color.  Whoa.  Not good.  Anyhow, tonight is Game 1 between the Milwaukee Bucks (46-26) at the Phoenix Suns (51-21).  The Suns take Game 1 by a score of 118 to 105.
  78. 2021 Tuesday S: Observation of the Day– Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend and in Joe Biden’s America, more than 500 people were shot, 233 killed, and 618 wounded.  This is Joe Biden’s America, NOT Donald J. Trump’s America, and it’s not white supremacists killing black folks, it’s black folks murdering black folks, and no one seems to care.  ET and I can pray 24/7/365 and until the morons and halfwits realize that LAW AND ORDER MUST BE MAINTAINED, SUPPORTED, AND CELEBRATED, the carnage is going to continue.  Earl Tiberius and I have our guns, we go to the range, we make our own bullets, we do what we must do to protect our business, our family, and our friends.  Joe Biden- you must leave office NOW.  – Chef Bea O’Malley.
  79. 2021 Tuesday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1674 with an $82 million jackpot up for grabs: 18, 47, 63, 68, 69, and Mega 14.  Out of 50,752 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $27,444.
  80. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill- let’s see what the Chi-Coms are up to today…shall we?

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Brian Wilson was a collaborative effort with lyricist and songwriter Van Dyke Parks, a friend and colleague with whom Brian Wilson created some of the greatest Beach Boys material in the late 1960s-early 1970s.  “Orange Crate Art” came out on October 24, 1995, and features tunes- mostly written by Parks- with Brian Wilson contributing the bulk of the vocals.  Other musicians joined in the effort which makes it a glorious endeavor indeed, a meeting of the minds, so to speak.  Back in the day, the other Beach Boys bitched and moaned about the lyrics, believing them to be ‘too out there’ for a group who loved surfing, hotrods, motorbikes, and enjoying the company of hot beach chicks.  We don’t give a flying hoot about the complexity of the lyrics; they were what made the Beach Boys most creative period what it was.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

165. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JUNE 14, 2022

2021 Monday L: Political News I- The GOP is blasting senile old Joe Biden’s DISMAL performance at the G7 where he cannot maintain any sort of coherent thought, shows up 2-3 hours late to meetings and press gaggles, and has other world leaders like Turkish thug, aka “The Sultan” Recep Tayyip Erdoğan arriving late to meet with the American usurper. This is becoming increasingly embarrassing and the promised propaganda that ‘the American people would have to run to keep up with Joe’ has yet to appear. Look, the Dems stole the 2020 presidential election as well as several U.S. Senate races. Not only does the American people know the truth, so, too, does the rest of the world.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 162

  1. 1642 Saturday: In Massachusetts, colony leaders pass the first compulsory education law in America—for males.  Of course, more than 3.5 centuries later, Millennials will be screaming and crying that the United States of America was formed in sin, that African slaves were there PRIOR to the founding of the country and thus the country is E-V-I-L and since the education was for males only, S-E-X-I-S-T.  Well, interesting note, West African tribes sold the blacks from the interior to the Spaniards, the Portuguese, the British, and the Dutch who then distributed them around the Colonial World.  Just saying, folks, just saying…somehow, the U.S. is the ONLY nation to get the blame for having had slaves when only 10-percent of all slaves exported from Africa came to British North America- but of course we are just discussing the nation’s first education mandate (bet there was no emphasis on LGBTQIA+ and all the rest of the crap).
  2. 1775 Wednesday: The United States forms the Continental Army on this date, which formed for the purposes of the common defense and appointed George Washington as its commander the following day.  The nation considers this act as the birth of the U.S. Army.  
  3. 1777 Saturday: The Continental Congress in Philadelphia adopted the Stars and Stripes as the national flag.  The Flag Resolution stated “Resolved: that the flag of the United States be made of thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.”  On May 20, 1916, President Woodrow Wilson—a Democrat—officially proclaimed June 14 as “Flag Day,” a day commemorating the “Stars and Stripes.”
  4. 1800 Saturday: At the Battle of Marengo, Napoleon Bonaparte defeats the Austrians; the dish Chicken a la Marengo is the dish created by Napoleon’s chefs to celebrate the victory.
  5. 1810 Thursday: Future 42nd Supreme Court of the United States Associate Justice Ward Hunt is born on this date in Utica, New York.  He began political life as a Democrat, then a member of the Free-Soil Party, and ended up a Republican.  President Ulysses S. Grant nominated him to fill the seat of Democrat Associate Justice Samuel Nelson.  Hunt served from December 11, 1872, to January 27, 1882.
  6. 1834 Saturday: In Springfield, Vermont, Isaac Fischer Jr. receives a patent for the invention of sandpaper while Cyrus Hall McCormick received a patent for his reaping machine.
  7. 1841 Monday: The first Canadian parliament opens in Kingston, Ontario.
  8. 1846 Sunday: California declares independence from Mexico in Sonoma, California.  The Mexicans go berserk and the Mexican American War is off-and-running. 
  9. 1847 Monday: Robert von Bunsen invents the Bunsen burner.   
  10. 1882 Tuesday: In Pitesti, Arges County, Kingdom of Rumania, future leader of Romania and Axis member, Ion Antonescu, is born on this date.
