210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.

  52. 2014 Tuesday: In Sierra Leone during the Ebola virus crisis, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan succumbs to the disease himself, the principal physician battling against it.  Meanwhile, in Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, the authorities claim that 100 of their citizens were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  IF Palestinians were killed, it’s because they were acting the fool- like usual.  In the wake of this, France announces it will send 8-million euros in aid to the Gaza.  Good for them, virtue-signaling is always good.
  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.
  54. 2016 Friday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party.  Needless to say, her fellow Democrats fall into a celebratory swoon and sex workers around the city see the numbers of their patrons spike.  Virginia Senator Tim Kaine becomes her running mate.  What a pair of losers.
  55. 2017 Saturday: U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint live-fire exercises in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile; experts said the North Korean launch showed that a substantial portion of the United States was now within the range of Kim Jong Un’s arsenal of missiles. 
  56. 2018 Sunday: Students in Dhaka, Bangladesh, launch protests around the nation demanding safer roadways.  In a country as poor as this one, they are incapable of doing the necessary infrastructure work to make their nation safe.
  57. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number.  Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  58. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $3.114.  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- Philippines: $4.590 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,579,970,824,046 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 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 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

[iv] We offered the music of the Byrds beginning on Monday, 16-January-2012 and concluded the presentation on Friday, 17-February-2012.  Sadly, we were shortsighted at the time that we did not present the various members’ solo projects but one day, we hope to rectify that error.

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

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

204. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JULY 23, 2022

2020 Thursday C: Today is the 56th straight day of rioting and protests in the city of Portland, Oregon. Mayor Ted Wheeler, Democrat, says federal law enforcement is responsible for the rioting when in truth, it’s the ambivalence of the mayor and his city council that bears full responsibility for the mayhem occurring in those once beautiful city’s streets. The previous night, in a despicable act of virtue-signaling, the mayor went out on the streets to participate in the riots and the agitators threw garbage at him and told him to resign.

  46. 1983 Saturday: An Air Canada Boeing 767 ran out of fuel while flying from Montreal to Edmonton; however, the pilots could glide the airliner safely to an emergency landing in Gimlet, Manitoba.  The near disaster occurred because the fuel had been erroneously measured in pounds instead of kilograms at a time when Canada was converting to the metric system.

Spencer left his job on this date.   A member of no professed political party, Spencer served under President Donald J. Trump from July 15, 2019, until today.  His successor, the 27th U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper assumed his post on this date.  He served under the 45th president until President Donald J. Trump fired his worthless RINO ass on November 09, 2020.

  70. 2020 Thursday C: Today is the 56th straight day of rioting and protests in the city of Portland, Oregon.  Mayor Ted Wheeler, Democrat, says federal law enforcement is responsible for the rioting when in truth, it’s the ambivalence of the mayor and his city council that bears full responsibility for the mayhem occurring in those once beautiful city’s streets.  The previous night, in a despicable act of virtue-signaling, the mayor went out on the streets to participate in the riots and the agitators threw garbage at him and told him to resign.  He suffered two bouts of teargassing before his security people removed him from the streets to safety.   Arrest the mayor, mow down the Antifa thugs.  Bring sanity back NOW!  Meanwhile, national polling averages give “Pro-China Joe” Biden a 15-point lead over President Donald J. Trump.  According to Democrats, Trump is ‘toast’ and might as well resign and go home NOW.
  71. 2020 Thursday D: On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka the Fly, Democratic-Socialist, blubbered about comments made by Florida GOP Rep.

[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.245.  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- Costa Rica: $4.483 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,556,382,310,872 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  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 France, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Norway with $88 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 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 122 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border separating the United States from barbarism and her 28th day since she ‘visited the border’ on her one and only photo op trip.  Joe Biden- strip this gibbering jackal, this shrieking night bird, this howling jackanapes, this screeching forest orangutan, Willie Brown’s mattress, and send her home to spend more time with her family.  She is a failure in everything she does.  Meanwhile, construction restarted on the border wall in Texas as Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, got the project going again using taxpayer dollars and donations to do what must be done: defending the United States from the massive numbers of illegals trying to storm our country.
  79. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers as compiled by One America News for the absolute catastrophe occurring along our southern border.  First, here is the cost for caring for the millions of illegal vermin crossing the border: $525,583,584 just this day.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the castoff Third World dregs this year: $222.992,384,576.  Next, here is the number estimated to have crossed the southern border this year: 2,285,483.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the taxpayers’-tired teats: 36,285,484. [xviii]  As everyone should know, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has been around since early 2009 and back then, we estimated the numbers of illegals within the United States then as between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the honest-to-God numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  This is insane and no country can withstand a tidal wave of illegal aliens as we now are.  Round ‘em up along with whatever children the scum have fathered or given birth to here, put them in tent prison camps in the Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas deserts, and when air transport, derelict freighters, buses, cattle cars, and any other type of transportation arises, get them the hell out of here.  NOW.
  80. 2021 Friday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– A Gallup poll says that 31-percent of ALL Americans want immigration decreased.  We think that immigration must be curtailed as it was early in the previous century as we do not need a tidal wave of ignorant, permanent lower-class dependents sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers.  Build the f**king wall and deport them all.   Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Johnson, R-LA 4th CD, is demanding answers for WHY a large number of Haitians allowed to enter the U.S. via the southern border were dumped all over the state with no advance warning to local authorities.
  81. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Chi-Com bigwig, a man who fashions himself as the global dictator, Xi Jinping and his corrupt, evil regime have slapped sanctions on former U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and five others after the Biden regime issued an advisory warning U.S. business of the risks of doing business in Hong Kong.  Meanwhile, reports suggest that the United States is doing what it should have done prior to the withdrawal from Afghanistan and that is launching air-and-drone strikes against weapons captured by the Taliban that we left behind as well as on Taliban targets, too.  Good.  Use neutron bombs, irradiate these barbarous scumbags.
  82. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden continues taking heat for his irresponsible comments on Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  The senile old fool says that if you get vaccinated you ‘won’t get sick, you won’t be hospitalized, and most of all, you won’t die.’  Joe, what the hell have you been smoking you old fool?  Add to Joe’s woes over his ludicrous comments regarding inflation and we see an ‘administration’ on the cusp of going down the crapper faster than Jimmy Carter’s.   The country needs deliverance from this insanity.  Can’t Barack Hussein Obama do a better job as the “Cho-Mo Joe whisperer’ than what he’s presently doing?
  83. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– The regime White House says it has the ‘highest ethical standards of ANY White House in U.S. history’ even as a growing cacophony of the American people question drug-addled Hunter Biden’s ‘private art sales.’  Who is buying his ‘13th Floor Elevators album covers-style artworks’ and how much are they paying for this psychedelic crap?  The man is NOT an artist, he is little more than a dope head with predilections for young children like his father, regime leader Joe Biden.  In other Biden regime news, when asked by a reporter as to numbers inside the White House afflicted by the ‘VID, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki responded with: “Why do you need to know the numbers?”  Speaking of “Circle Back” Psaki, she also guaranteed White House reporters that ethics safeguards are now in place to make sure Hunter Biden is not selling his artworks to America’s enemies to open a back channel to the voice in his feeble father’s ear.
  84. 2021 Friday L: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– After the Major League Baseball 2021 Season concludes, the fabled Cleveland Indians have announced that in order to appease the WOKIES going berserk on social media, they are going to change their name to- get this- the Cleveland Guardians which sounds much like a DEFENSIVE name, not an OFFENSIVE one.  If it makes you feel better, then go for it but we hope the Atlanta Braves and the Kansas City Chiefs keep their names.  President Donald J. Trump had to add his two cents to the conservation and called the name change a ‘big disgrace.’  Amen.    
  85. : Whacked-Out News of the Day– Meanwhile, Tennessee’s state house removed the bust of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and sent it God knows where.  The bust was installed back in 1979.  The man was the creator of the Ku Klux Klan; however, destroying history is foolish because in so doing, the lessons the next generation can learn disappear, possibly to be repeated again at some point in the future.   Curiously, the busts of two famous U.S. Admirals- David Farragut and Albert Gleaves- so as NOT to hurt the feelings of the Forrest bust.  There is NO other explanation as to WHY one would remove two U.S. heroes.
  86. 2021 Friday N: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Jason Sengheiser blasted the St. Louis prosecutors office over the dismissals of murder charges against three separate defendants.   The judge accused the office of Kim Gardner of shirking its duty of protecting the community from violent thugs.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   In other despicable news, President Donald J. Trump’s former inaugural chairman Tom Barrack walked out of jail today on a $250 million bond.  A $250 million bond.  What is this, a banana republic?  Flamin’ crap, folks, the country is falling into the abyss.
  87. 2021 Friday O: U.S. House of Representatives News I– The House Freedom Caucus is pushing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD to employ a House rule that would allow the lower chamber to boot Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the rapidly deteriorating fascist dictator out of the speakership and onto her butt.  In a letter to the senior GOP leader in the House, they wrote: “We, the House Freedom Caucus, respectfully request that you pursue the authorization of the House Republican Conference, pursuant to Conference rules, to file and bring up a privileged motion by July 31, 2021, to vacate the chair and end Nancy Pelosi’s authoritarian reign as Speaker of the House.  Rule IX, Clause 3 of the Rules of the House of Representatives for the One Hundred Seventeenth Congress requires that ‘A resolution causing a vacancy in the Office of Speaker shall not be privileged except if offered by direction of a party caucus or conference.”  The fact that Speaker Mumbles booted two of Leader McCarthy’s picks from her sham January 06, 2021, Select Committee caused Leader McCarthy to say that in the ‘history of the House, this has never happened before.’  He pulled his remaining picks and the lemon-sucking speaker said ‘good’ and is going to run her ersatz committee with skunks such as Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th CD, as ‘representatives of the GOP.’  Leader McCarthy, we hope you will act on the Freedom Caucus’ letter.
  88. 2021 Friday P: Federal and State Court News– Finally!  A federal appellate court finds the CDC moratorium on evictions is ‘unconstitutional’ which is good news for landlords as they have bills to pay, too.
  89. 2021 Friday Q: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1679 what with a $140 million jackpot on the line: 13, 17, 19, 40, 69 and Mega 17.  Out of 63,207 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $8,638 apiece.
  90. 2022 Saturday: This past Tuesday, the dingleberry Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- AOC- and her good buds, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar were arrested in front of the United States Supreme Court for blocking traffic.  Others of their ilk underwent ‘arrest,’ too, what with magic handcuffs behind their backs.  What a bullshit show.  Can we please remove these dimwitted skanks from office in November?  Besides, the ‘big booty Latina’s’ rear-end is the product of a Brazilian butt lift, it ain’t real just like her and her ’fiancé’ is little more than a suck-up punk.   One has to love Alex Stein, the comedian, the man is hilarious.
