  48. 2014 Saturday: For threatening to block state funds to the office of District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg unless she resigned, a Travis County grand jury indicted Texas Governor Rick Perry on charges of abuse of power; the threat stemmed from Lehmberg’s arrest for drunk driving.  Eventually, evidence would clear the governor but the Democrats in parts of Texas are flipping nuts.

  50. 2016 Tuesday: In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker, R, called out the National Guard to quell rioting that broke out after the police shot and killed 23-year-old Sylvie Smith.  The interesting thing about the shooting is that police officer who shot and killed Mr. Smith was a BLACK police officer.  As usual, rampaging rioters set fire to numerous stores and shops, causing mayhem wherever they went.  Antifa and Black Lives Matter are always lurking in the shadows.  Thank you, Xi Jinping, thank you, George Soros for funding this anti-American mayhem. 
  51. 2017 Wednesday: Poor President Donald J. Trump, who had faced harsh criticism for initially blaming the deadly weekend violence in Charlottesville, Va., on “many sides” (which was flipping TRUE), told reporters that there were ‘very fine people on both sides,’ of the confrontation and that groups protesting against the white supremacists were ‘also very violent’ which they were.  In between those statements, at the urgings of aides, Trump had offered a more direct condemnation of white supremacists.  What Trump was saying is that many of the people there were protesting against the removal of Confederate war memorial statues and were not all white supremacists, yet the FAKE NEWS media once again twists the story to fit their narrative that Trump is a racist.
  52. 2018 Thursday: In Northern Sudan, disaster occurs along the Nile River as raging floodwaters swamp a boat carrying mostly school-aged children; at least twenty-five drown while others disappear down the river.  
  53. 2019 Friday: President Donald J. Trump finally does something many people have long-wished him to do and that was to suspend the security clearance of ‘former communist’ and former CIA director under Barack Hussein Obama- John Brennan.  This SOB should have had his security clearance suspended on Day No. 1.  
  54. 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, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that will not stop giving, statistics for today: 21,280,608 confirmed cases, UP 243,665, 767,422 confirmed deaths, UP 5,496, and 13,290,879 confirmed recoveries, UP 241,905.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 5,403,756 confirmed cases, UP 50,148 new cases, 170,632 confirmed deaths, UP 998, and 2,733,055 confirmed recoveries, UP 34,926. 
  55. 2020 Saturday A: 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: 613,689 confirmed cases, 11,147 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a mildewed POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 4,543 confirmed cases, forty confirmed deaths, and 1,756 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 66,139 confirmed cases, 1,755 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee will not list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at the numbers of another state we have not looked at lately, Arkansas, the “Natural State.”  The number of cases in the state is 52,392 while the number of deaths is six hundred.  The number of confirmed recoveries is 44,905.  Thank you, Governor Asa Hutchinson for your honesty and integrity.
  56. 2020 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics for Several Hand-selected Nations- Let us look at the second-highest nation infected with the Wuhan Virus, Brazil:  The South American nation has 3,317,0996 cases of Xi Jinping’s gift to the world what with 107,232 deaths, and 2,384,302 recoveries.   India is the third highest nation infected with this dastardly, lab-engineered virus what with 2,589,208 confirmed cases, 50,084 confirmed deaths, and 1,860,672 confirmed recoveries.  Russia comes in fourth what with 917,884 confirmed cases, 15,617 confirmed deaths, and 729,411 confirmed recoveries.  Now, let’s look at the Chi-Coms, the place where this needless disaster began: last week, they come in 30th among nations but this week have dropped to 32nd place (yeah, right) with 84,808 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths (same as last week), and 79,519 confirmed recoveries (although our sources in Hong Kong and Macau tell us they are 10-12-times higher than reported which sounds about right for the main communist hellhole on the planet.  Shame on them and damn them for the crime they have committed on the world).
  57. 2020 Saturday C: After the NYPD union endorses President Donald J. Trump, New York Democrats go berserk, particularly the little communist skank, your friend and ours, the Baby Evita, aka Sandy Cortez, former barmaid in the Big Apple, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, now known as AOC.  Not sure what these frigging Democrats expected but we predict that all across the United States, one law enforcement union after another is going to endorse President Donald J. Trump.  To tell you the truth, we expect Richard Trumka and the AFL-CIO to fall in line behind President Trump because in SOCIALIST-COMMUNIST countries, labor unions are for show while in FREE nations such as the United States, Labor serves a purpose and unions represent the workers.  As long as they do not try to devour businesses but work with them, amazing things can occur.  Trumka- get with it: NOW.
  58. 2020 Saturday D: Robert Trump, President Trump’s younger brother, died of an unknown illness at age 72.  He was a Trump Org. executive and a much more private member of the family although he supported his brother’s presidency. 
  59. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 207,984,087 confirmed cases, +460,845, 4,374,467 confirmed deaths, +7,695 and 186,447,031 confirmed recoveries, +431,193.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 37,466,718 confirmed cases, UP 30,883 from yesterday’s reporting, 637,561 confirmed deaths, UP 122, [vi] and 30,153,576 confirmed recoveries, UP 8,967.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]  
  60. 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 318,804 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 85,274 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  61. 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: 4,131,332 confirmed cases, 64,670 confirmed deaths, and 2,189,158 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,925,074 confirmed cases, 40,584 confirmed deaths, and 2,312,488 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 51,200 confirmed cases, 552 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 508,842 confirmed cases, 6,289 confirmed deaths, and 238,596 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Connecticut: they have 361,836 confirmed cases, 8,307 confirmed deaths, and 341,673 confirmed recoveries. [viii]   
  62. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 939,360 confirmed cases, 6,668 confirmed deaths, and 884,799 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Guinea-Bissau, 180th country on the list: 5,123 cases of the virus, 90 confirmed deaths and 4,399 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  63. 2021 Sunday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,515.38, UP 15.58 points (+0.044%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,822.90, UP 6.64 points (+0.045%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,468.00, UP 7.17 points (+0.16%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.03 per barrel, -0.41 (-0.60%).  The price of GOLD is $1,781.50 per troy oz., +3.30 (+0.19%) while the price of SILVER is $23.74 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.16%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,025.90 per troy oz, -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of COPPER is $4.36 per pound, -0.03 (-0.72%).

[xiii]        
  64. 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 $4.404 per gallon, $3.013 in Florida, $4.087 in Hawaii, and $3.897 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other location- New Jersey: $3.202.  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- Japan: $5.318 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,645,810,068,827 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  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 Belgium, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Grand Cayman Island with $225 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.
  65. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Celestial strings please- today is Day No. 145 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 51 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Here are the numbers for illegal aliens and the cost of caring for them as provided by OAN.  First, the cost this day alone is: $632,597,824.  Next, here is the appalling cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country for just this year: $248,303,894,528.  Imagine the good that money could do for the American people and not the flotsam and jetsam of the Third World?  Next, here are the numbers of illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,544,916.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers for all time: 36,544,916.  Horrifying, simply horrifying.  (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).  In other border news, Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook published a study in which seven million illegal aliens would receive amnesty immediately.  WHO gives a f**k what Zuckerberg and Facebook say?  Break them up like the federal government did Ma Bell decades back.
  66. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– In the wee hours of the morning, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled to neighboring Tajikistan where the government granted him asylum.  Later in the day, the Taliban rumbled into Kabul, took control of Bagram Air Base, released prisoners, and ended up in the presidential palace.  The Chi-Coms, the Russians, and the Iranians recognized the new Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.  Twenty years after the U.S. and her NATO allies drove the scum out of the country, they are back and more Islamist than ever.  Helicopters are shuttling people from the American embassy to the airport where they are leaving the country as fast as they can.   The Taliban claims they want a ‘peaceful transfer of power.’  U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says that IF the United States did not abandon Afghanistan to her fate, we would be back at war with the Taliban.   Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says the debacle in Afghanistan caused by no one else but slobbering Joe Biden has humiliated the United States on the world stage.
  67. 2021 Sunday H: Foreign News-Overseas News II– Speaking of Afghanistan, President Donald J. Trump says that the Biden regime did not follow the withdrawal plan that had the Taliban did what they are now doing would have blasted them with drone strikes and air power.  President Trump says the Biden regime handed Afghanistan over to the Taliban so whatever happens to the people there- but especially the women and girls- will be atop the heads of the regime.  Elsewhere, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada bravely calls for snap elections in a few months.  The effeminate PM whose father was one of the Rolling Stones is confident that his party can win back the majority which will mean he will not have to depend on a coalition of left-wing parties.  Careful what you wish for, Mr. PM.  In other foreign and overseas news, black marketeers selling gasoline out of a tank in northern Lebanon blew themselves up.  At least twenty-eight poor souls lost their lives and another seventy-nine suffered a wide variety of horrible injuries. 
  68. 2021 Sunday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A Freedom March in Los Angeles, California, peacefully protesting the harsh lockdown mandates and restrictions across the city drew left-wing thugs from Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  One of the thugs brazenly stabbed one of the anti-lockdown marchers.  Not sure as to what his condition is.  Next, the Biden regime continues waging war on the state of Florida.  According to some mope in the regime, the federal government will provide financial assistance to Sunshine State lawmakers fighting against Tallahassee’s ban on kids wearing masks in schools.  We are on the cusp of a second civil war thanks to the Chi-Coms interfering in our affairs.  Next, here are the stock prices for BIG PHARMA: (1) Pfizer $48.48 (2) AstraZeneca PLC $58.48.  (3) Johnson & Johnson $176.25 (4) BioNTech $377.32 (5) Moderna $389.78.
  69. 2021 Sunday K: Political News I– Following Senator Lindsey Graham’s ‘YES’ vote on the Biden regime’s ‘infrastructure bill,’ several counties in South Carolina censured the RINO Republican.  In other news, sniveling anti-Trumper Republicans are lying to the Fake News by saying that Trump supporters are calling for violence against the American people.  STFU.
  70. 2021 Sunday L: Political News II– In other political news, a judge put the kibosh on Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott’s executive orders authorizing Lone Star State law enforcement to pull over cars, buses, and trucks suspected of carrying illegal aliens throughout the state.  Since most of the illegals swamping the country at present are carrying the Chi-Vi and other dire diseases into the country, one would think it would be a matter of protecting the public health but oh, no, the liberals despise it when anyone pursues the new class of Democratic low-wage slaves: illegal aliens.
  71. 2022 Monday: Everyone is appalled by what the Biden regime did one week ago today- raiding President Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate- and we will continue being appalled.  There must be heads on the chopping block over this egregious, unpatriotic and highly un-American travesty of justice and I, your host, believe even more people are going to continue voting GOP in ever-growing numbers.  I suspect that tomorrow, Liz Cheney will be out on her ass just as will be the old fossil, Lisa Murkowski.  I suspect that each primary race left on the calendar is going to witness RINOs going down in smoldering defeat.  How the hell Dan Newhouse escaped retribution is beyond us but I am sure Chef Vlad will have something to say about that.  From this point forward, the FBI- aka the Joestapo- will be viewed as no better than the Mexican Federales.  You had better bet payback is coming at the election booth for all of these leftwing-liberal losers and pieces of festering shit.  We cannot wait.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

Just when one suspects that the vaults might be dry, bone dry, well, think again.  Capitol Records went into the archives and produced yet another massive box set: “Made in California,” released on August 27, 2013.  A massive, 6-CD set broken down by years and then by decades, there is so much material here which spans the years from 1961 through 2012.  There are 174 tunes here, 60 of which have either NEVER been heard or were on bootleg albums fans sought out on the black market.  There are well-known cuts, live cuts, B-sides, alternate versions, and everything between here, there, and everywhere.  IF you can afford the dough, we hope you will seek this amazing box set out wherever it is you shop for the best in music.  Hell, you might even be able to find it at your local library depending upon the size of the city in which you live.  We think you will love it as much as do we so what the heck are you awaiting?  A personal invitation?  Seek it out now and enjoy.

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

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

[iii] 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.

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

[v] We look forward to sharing ALL of the Woodstock 1969 albums one day.  On opening day, the first act of the day was Richie Havens followed by an Indian swami who gave the incantation.  Following him, Sweetwater took the stage followed by Bert Sommer, then Tim Hardin, then Ravi Shankar, Melanie, Arlo Guthrie, and Joan Baez.  The performances began 05:07 P.M. and ended 2:00 A.M. the following morning. This was the first day.

[xvii] These leftwing sons of bitches somehow believe signs of American patriotism as well as other signs such as the wholly American “OKAY sign” are emblematic of WHITE SUPREMACISM which is the stupidest thing any of us have ever heard.  It’s time to clean the leftists out of government.  We would love to see Bernie Kerik become head of the FBI and former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke become head of the ATF in the second Trump administration.  Would that not be something?  It would be good to see Rudy Giuliani become the next U.S. Attorney General.  Can you dig it?  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

226. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 14, 2022

Friends, it was akin to a lightbulb exploding above my head: the Democrats are NOT bringing millions of illegal alien military-aged males into the United States to affect the vote (maybe in years to come) but to rise up in January 2025 and to then launch an insurrection across our country. The Dems- I used to be one until I AWOKE- KNOW that President Donald J. Trump is going to return to office along with a continuing tidal wave of Republicans…

AND KEEP HER THAT WAY!

  44. 1992 Friday: The United States—for some strange reason—announced that it was going to begin emergency airlifts of food to Somalia.  The government announced it was going to do this to stop the prospect of mass starvation, something that would lead to the deplorable “Black Hawk Down” situation under the command of President Bill Clinton.  Even worse, it would open the doors to bring Somali ‘refugees’ like the little POS Ilhan Omar whom we would love to send back to her country of her origin.

  54. 2017 Monday: Under pressure from right and left, President Donald J. Trump- once againcondemned white supremist groups by names, declaring them to be “repugnant to everything that we hold dear as Americans.”  The CEO of Merck, the nation’s third-largest pharmaceutical company, resigned from a federal advisory council, citing Trump’s failure to explicitly condemn white nationalists who marched in Charlottesville, Va.  Kenneth Frazier was one of the few African Americans (does it matter what flipping color a CEO is?) to head a Fortune 500 company.  In addition to this prick abandoning the president under false pretenses and fake news, so, too, did the CEOs of Intel and Under Armor who also resigned from the American Manufacturing Council later in the day.  What a bunch of fricking pussies.  
  55. 2018 Tuesday: According to the United Nations, things have been so bad in the South American Marxist state of Venezuela that more than 2.3 million people have fled the crap-hole country.  While it is great that someone has reported this, when is the United Nations going to do what the victors of World War II created it to do, to topple failed nation states and liberate people?  WTF!  Elsewhere, in Genoa, Italy, the Morandi Bridge collapses which causes the deaths of at least forty-three people as thirty or so cars traversing it plunge into the Polcevera Valley which includes a river, a railway terminal, and other physical landmarks.  The disaster also causes six hundred people to become homeless.  At least when Benito Mussolini ran Italy, the trains ran on time and the bridges did not collapse- unless they were under a rain of Allied bombs.  C’est la vie!
  56. 2019 Wednesday: In Stockholm, Sweden, American rapper ASAP Rocky receives a suspended sentence for being found guilty of assault on a Swedish citizen.  Meanwhile, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan blasts the government of India for having placed the Indian-controlled region of Kashmir under lockdown following violence caused by…you guessed it…Pakistani Muslims.
  57. 2020 Friday:  California Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-CA 18th Assembly District, proposes a NEW taxation law on the state’s ultra-wealthy that ‘will raise $7.5 billion for the state’s general fund, will drive the top tax rate from 13.5% to 16.8%.  Supposedly, it would affect only those with wealth over $30 million and if the wealthy leave the state and take their money with them, they will STILL have to pay taxes to California on their money for up to 10 years.  Assemblyman Bonta swears it will affect only 30,400 California residents but once those people move out of the state before the law- if passed and takes effect- and take their money with them, who will the new taxation rate hit next?   Vote this POS out of office in November.  Meanwhile, former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith who worked with James Comey and others in the coup to remove Donald Trump from office becomes the first member of the far-leftist cabal to plead guilty in federal court for having lied and for falsifying evidence.  He altered emails saying Carter Page was NOT a CIA source when he WAS a CIA source every time, he gave speeches in Russia.  Let us hope Mr. Clinesmith becomes the first of many facing prison time.  He is another POS.  
  58. 2020 Friday A: President Trump says he is prepared to cut stimulus checks to American families of up to $3,400 per family of four if ONLY the Democrats would come to the table and help him.  Meanwhile, polling shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his VP nominee Kamala Harris leading the Trump-Pence team by 8 to 10 points depending upon where one looks.  Speaking of “Pro-China (or Groping) Joe” Biden, he says ‘Trump has done nothing to staunch the spread of the Chinese Virus, that he would order U.S. industry to produce more PPE gear and would require ALL Americans to wear masks for the next three months whether within or without their homes. 
  59. 2020 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Virus Statistics for the globe: 21,036,943 confirmed cases, UP by 412,627 cases, 761,926 confirmed deaths, UP by 12,505 deaths, and 13,048,978 confirmed recoveries, UP by 217,174 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,353,608 confirmed cases, UP by 29,006 new cases, 169,634 confirmed deaths, UP by 704 new deaths, and 2,698,129 confirmed recoveries, UP by 18,435 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  60. 2020 Friday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 601,075 confirmed cases, UP 7,934 cases, 10,996 confirmed deaths, UP by 188, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 4,312 confirmed cases, UP by 0(according to yesterday) forty confirmed deaths, UP by zero, and 1,716 confirmed recoveries, UP by 0- NO NEW NUMBERS.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 65,339 confirmed cases, UP by 833, 1,653 confirmed deaths, UP by twenty-nine, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  THE NUMBERS REMAIN THE SAME FOR WASHINGTON, TOO, NO REPORTING OF NEW NUMBERS.
  61. 2020 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,931.02, UP 34.30 points (+0.12%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  11,019.30, DOWN 23.20 points (-0.21%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,372.85, DOWN 0.58 points (-0.017%).  Price of GOLD: $1,953.70 per troy oz., +3.90 (+0.20%) Here is the price of SILVER: $26.54 per troy oz., +0.456 (+1.75%).  Price of PLATINUM: $960.80 per troy oz., +1.70 (+0.18%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.86 per #, +0.0045 (+0.16%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $42.23, +0.22 (+0.52%).  Today, one dollar U.S. = 6.95 PRC yuan while one dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros.
  62. 2020 Friday E: The U.S. Department of Defense announces it is going to establish a task force to investigate the numerous UFO sightings that have been ongoing around the world.  Although investigators have studied the phenomena before- aka Project Blue Book with dubious answers- it seems much more important now as hundreds of millions of people around the world have seen unidentified aerial vehicles as well as unidentified submerged vehicles.  It is extremely important that the American people and the world understand if we are in danger from these otherworldly vehicles.  Go for it!   Speaking of UFO [viii], bassist Pete Way of the British rock band died at age 69 from complications from an accident.
  63. 2020 Friday F: A federal appeals court rules that California’s restrictions on large-capacity magazines are unconstitutional which is amazing as all of us who own firearms never handed them over anyway and if anything went out and bought more of them so we would have them on hand when or if that drooling moron Beto O’Rourke comes calling for them.  Watch out, boy!  Elsewhere, Hezbollah thug leader Hassan Nasrallah suggests that Lebanon and ONLY Lebanon should investigate the massive blast that devastated Beirut on August 04 which is silly as everyone believes the Hezbollah morons are the ones who blew the city’s port up when mountains of ammonium nitrate exploded, killing more than 180 people, vaporizing numerous others, and wounding nearly 4,000 people.  If anything, the Lebanese people should string this murderous POS up as he is now trying to blame Israel for his and his followers’ stupidity.  Meanwhile, Iran- another culprit in this mishap- says it will restore Beirut’s power free of charge.  Allowing them to do it is akin to the chickens inviting the wolf into the hen house.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 318,682 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 85,396 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  69. 2021 Saturday 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 $4.404 per gallon, $3.015 in Florida, $4.090 in Hawaii, and $3.893 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other location- New Hampshire: $3.005.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Albania: $5.314 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,641,726,427,507 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Switzerland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Belgium with $253 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.
  70. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Trumpets please- today is Day No. 144 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 50 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Not being critical, just pointing it out for the readers.  Speaking of the ‘Border Czar,’ RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel says that ‘Kooky Kamala’ has ‘done nothing to address the border crisis in weeks.’  Although ‘Kooky’ is not doing her job, California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner visited the southern border.  
  71. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the updated figures for the illegal alien invasion along the southern border.  First, here is the cost of caring for this riffraff for just this day: 693,442,560.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the invaders at this point in the year: $247,268,851,712.  Can you imagine all this money being spent to bring about one-world government run by the likes of communist countries?  Horrifying.  Third, here are the numbers of illegals who have poured across the border just this year: 2,534,307.  Fourth and final, here is the LOW ESTIMATE for the illegals hiding in the country: 36,534,307.  (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 been reading our work for any time now, you know that back when we created the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day in 2009, we said THEN the numbers of illegals in the country stood at 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Not good).
  72. 2021 Saturday H: Illegal Aliens-Invaders-and-‘Refugees’ News– Here are some more stats for the border crisis regarding numbers for the year 2021 so far.  First, 888,454 single adults have crossed the border, most of them young males of military age (see the original “Red Dawn” movie starring Patrick Swayze (1984), not the PC 2012 remake if you want to know what damage a tidal wave of illegal aliens could do).  Next, here is the number for family units who have crossed the southern border this year: 328,121.  Moving on, here are the numbers for unaccompanied children and single minors who have crossed in 2021: 113,791.  Here are the numbers for unaccompanied minors for the past four Julys: 2018: 4,406.  2019: 5,846.  2020: 2,509.  2021: 18,962.  Finally, a federal judge has ordered the Biden regime to revive- immediately- President Donald J. Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico policy’ for all illegal aliens.    
  73. 2021 Saturday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– As the Biden regime continues trying to rush American troops BACK into Afghanistan so we can pull them out yet again, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is blasting the Antitrump for the hurried evacuation of Afghanistan, leaving it in the mess that it is, and now for going back into the maelstrom.  The United Kingdom is pulling out its embassy staff as we speak.  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district says that Joe Biden’s bumbling is going to lead to a ‘resurgence of al-Qaida.’ Speaking of the war in Afghanistan, here are some stats.  Cost of the war: 2.26 trillion dollars.  Next, cost in U.S. lives: 2,442 and 20,666 wounded.  Afghan dead at or around 241,000 and wounded at or around 1,271,000.  As Taliban forces continue investing around the perimeter of Kabul, the Afghan president is appealing to the global community for help.
  74. 2021 Saturday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Newsmax reported today that following the highly unwise 60th birthday bash for the 44th president at his multimillion-dollar mansion on Martha’s Vineyard last week, the island is seeing a huge spike in Wuhan Virus cases.  Wow.  Barack Hussein Obama is a super-spreader.
  75. 2021 Saturday K: Health and Medical Alerts– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, has announced the creation of a rapid response team to expand monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19 for all Floridians.  Elsewhere, first responders in Hawaii are suing the state over its onerous vaccine policies for all first responders and medical personnel.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Democrats are floating yet another ‘stick’ in the war to get everyone to undergo the ‘jab’ so they can rake in the big bucks: unvaccinated employees are going to have to pay more for their health insurance, yet another tax slapped on the American people.  Here is another one: in California, they are saying that smoke from the wildfires is going to drive up cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as well as deaths.  What will they think of next?
  76. 2021 Saturday L: Joe Biden News I– Everyone should remember that while the Antitrump was campaigning for president, he promised the world that his administration would be the most transparent in the history of the presidency.  Some members of the Fake News Media are asking ‘WHY’ they cannot see the visitor logs for Joe Biden’s home in Delaware?  He goes there frequently to get his ‘Manchurian Candidate-like mental tune-ups’ so reporters want to know who is visiting him there.  Chi-Coms?  We do not know.  Russians?  Possibly.  Ukrainians?  Highly possible yet flipping Joe Biden will not release the visitor logs and this is the most transparent administration in the history of presidential politics.
  77. 2021 Saturday M: Political News I– Disheveled, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, has extended the proxy voting to October 2021.  Next, a bipartisan group of U.S. senators is asking U.S. Treasury to investigate JBS- the meat-packing conglomerate- for corruption and criminal practices.  Next, a federal judge tosses the lawsuit against FOX News Channel that disgraced POS attorney Michael Avenatti launched against them.
  78. 2021 Saturday N: Political News II– In other political news of the day, former Republican governor of New York George Pataki says that ‘New York is corrupted by arrogance of power.’  In other news, famed legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘IF Attorney General Leticia James runs for governor, she is going to face loads of ethics woes.’
  79. 2021 Saturday O: Business News– Dodge is recalling 263,000 Ram trucks because of airbag problems.  The auto maker will fix the problems at no charge to the customers.
  80. 2021 Saturday P: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– After trashing the entertainer’s life, attorneys for Bill Cosby announce that they plan on FULLY VINDICATING him via a civil lawsuit.
  81. 2021 Saturday Q: California State News– Sacramento says that Pacific Gas & Electric- PG&E- will NOT face charges for the Woolsey Fire of 2018.  The entity who should face charges for all California wildfires is the Democrat-run state government.  They abrogate their duty at maintaining the forests properly just as they fail to maintain and/or create new water infrastructure.  Every wildfire in the state rests solely upon the shoulders of the California Democratic Party.  Speaking of wildfires, the largest wildfire in the history of the state- the Dixie Fire- continues to rage across northern California.  God, please send some rain!  In other Golden State news, gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder says that IF he wins election, he is going to repeal all mask and vaccine mandates before breakfast.  Fellow gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner says that IF she wins the governor’s mansion, she will use state money to complete the California portion of the border wall.
  82. 2021 Saturday R: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3586 what with a $8 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner. Here are the numbers: 02, 13, 17, 19, 21, and Mega 12.  Out of 97,445 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $32,171.  The winning ticket was sold at ARCO AM/PM in Cathedral City, CA 92234. Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #872 with a jackpot of $258 million up for grabs: 06, 21, 49, 65, 67, and Powerball 18.  Out of 97,651 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $53,536.
  83. 2021 Saturday S: The Wrap-Up– Here are the stock prices for the BIG FOUR PHARMA companies cranking out vaccines for Uncle Sam: (1) Pfizer: $48.48.  (2) Johnson & Johnson: $176.25.  (3) BioNTech: $377.32.  (4) Moderna: $389.78.  To achieve Zen in understanding WHY global leaders are pushing vaccines on their people, follow the money.  Every country partnering with a vaccine manufacturer means the country’s leaders invest heavily in the stock of said companies.  Just like companies producing weapons, politicians invest heavily in those companies, too, as the market for their products NEVER disappears. [xx]  The wonderful thing about vaccines, is that they can try to force them on everyone which means more money in their pockets.  What a flipping swindle, and the world needs to wake up to the danger facing it when the ‘sophisticate folks’- like those at Barack’s birthday party- think they can guide us into being subservient slaves.  (Note- you can take it a step further- did the various world leaders conspire with the Chi-Coms to release the virus so that they could amass heretofore unseen amounts of wealth while crushing problems in each country?  The Chi-Coms and the Dems were able to get Donald Trump out of the White House.  The Chi-Coms were able to crush the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong.  Britain has been able to secure more power as has Canada, France, Australia, look at what these people are doing.  Let us listen to Rand Paul: they cannot arrest all of us which means the people of the world must demonstrate to their leaders that they are not going to lie down and take it.  Let us get Donald Trump back in the White House.  NOW.  (Beware the military-industrial-pharmaceutical-political complex).
  84. 2022 Sunday: Friends, it was akin to a lightbulb exploding above my head: the Democrats are NOT bringing millions of illegal alien military-aged males into the United States to affect the vote (maybe in years to come) but to rise up in January 2025 and to then launch an insurrection across our country.  The Dems- I used to be one until I AWOKE- KNOW that President Donald J. Trump is going to return to office along with a continuing tidal wave of Republicans and to cause him as much havoc as they can by setting our nation ablaze.  Think about it: remember when all those ‘spontaneous marches and demonstrations’ began following the election of 2016?  Everyone thought at the time- me included- that they were a ‘grassroots response’ to golden girl, Hillary Rodham Clinton going down in flames.  Watching our country burst asunder in the summer of 2020 over a few minor police interactions with minorities and how the left just showed up with everything ready to go and burned down half of the country was the eye-opening event.  The Dems will DESTROY our nation any way they can because they hate it when people rise up and throw them out of office just as the Deep State despises losing its slimy grip on power.  Friends, this is EVIL which is why I encourage everyone to go to gun shows across the nation and to buy firearms and ammo for the dark days to come.  We are going to send these illegal aliens packing back across the border where hopefully, they will topple the corrupt government down there.  It couldn’t happen to more deserving people.  The Democratic Party is like a cancer on one’s testicles– gnarly.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Beach Boys went on the road to celebrate their 50th anniversary in 2012 and then released a glorious live album to commemorate the celebration.  “Live- the 50th Anniversary Tour” came out on May 21, 2013, and featured the reconfigured band- Brian Wilson (vocals, keyboards, guitars, bass), Mike Love (vocals, percussion), Alan Jardine (guitars, vocals), Bruce Johnston (vocals, keyboards, bass), David Marks (lead guitar, vocals), as well as a pair of archival recordings included in the shows, one featuring Dennis Wilson and the other, Carl Wilson, on “Forever” and “God Only Knows” respectively.  The band was supported by their touring members and given the fact that the tour was 50 years on from their seminal beginnings, the album seethes with energy.  We hope you will seek this album out by visiting your favorite site for the absolute best in music- heck, you might even find it at your local library as several of us did- can’t hurt to save a few bucks, now can it?  Ah, well, seek it out and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.

[i] 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.

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Byrds and then Buffalo Springfield, had we been more perceptive at the time as to how we would combined integrated musical groups and performers, we should have done the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, as well as each artist’s solo catalog as well as that of the various members of the Byrds.  We look forward to correcting that mistake at some point in the next 3-5 years so please remain alert for that day.  You will be glad you did.

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

[iv] We hope to present the music of Sly & the Family Stone within the next decade or so.  Please stay tuned for further information.

[v] We will present the music of Chicago- and its various members’ solo careers- sometime in 2030 so we hope you will remain with us until then.

[vi] See earlier footnote.

[vii] We are not sure when we will begin offering the music of Blue Öyster Cult but expect it will be sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the legendary British rock band UFO as well as its various side projects including music by the Michael Schenker Group, Phil Mogg, Pete Way, Waysted, and a few other iterations of the group beginning on Monday, January 11, 2021, through Sunday, May 02, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.

[xx] Weapons are not popular whereas vaccines are.  However, we mostly agree that if we were to look into investments of every politician, either they- or members of their families or straw buyers- are invested in weapons stocks.  They just don’t talk about it.  Investing in companies producing ‘life-saving vaccines’ however looks good and makes big bucks just like investing in green energy companies.  Anyone recall how the Democrats got wealthy off Solyndra before the company tanked and the regular folks lost their life savings?  It is what it is so let’s awaken, smell the danger circling around us and do something about it.  They cannot imprison all of us.

225. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, AUGUST 13, 2022

Once again, as with Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby, as with Sirhan Bashara Sirhan, and as with James Earl Ray- and Cesar Sayoc- the FBI would have us believe these people are lurking in the woodwork ready to commit all manner of heinous assaults on our esteemed government officials. Friends, I hate to label stuff as BULLSHIT but this is bullshit.

Trump announced an amazing deal, one between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.  They are now at peace and will exchange diplomatic missions.  This is only the third time an Arab nation and the world’s sole Jewish state have come to peace terms.  The Palestinians are howling like the rabid dogs they are, and the Iranians are sniveling and whining.  We hope an accounting will come soon for BOTH of these outlaw nations (well, one thug nation- Iran- and one thug place- Gaza Strip).  Meanwhile, ISIS is trying to resurrect itself in Syria so it may be another time to unleash hell on these scumbags.  Light ‘em up, President Trump, light ‘em up.  Finally, Kooky Kamala Harris, “Pro-China Joe” Biden’s running mate bitches it is time for the United States to return to a consensus with other nations before we move forward on anything.  Screw her.  She turns whatever direction the wind drives her.  Elsewhere, numerous businesses in Chicago but especially on the Miracle Mile have said, “ENOUGH!  We are leaving the crime-ridden city,” all the while, lesbo Mayor Lori Lightfoot blames all her city’s problems on OUTSIDERS.  If so, then do something about it but between you, Bill Di Blasio and Eric Garcetti, other cities will become the new metropolises while you destroy your cities for whatever perverse reasons you are doing so.
  59. 2020 Thursday A: The crumbling government of Lebanon declares a state of emergency following the rising anger enveloping the declining country following the massive explosion that lit up the port and much of the capital city, Beirut.  Police have increased powers to go into the streets to combat the angry mobs intent on receiving justice.  At least 172 people died in the blast, many more are missing and presumed dead, and at least 3,500 to 3,800 suffer appalling injuries.  Most competent sources believe that Hezbollah and their hoodlum leader Hassan Nasrallah bear much of the responsibility for this crime against humanity for having kept more than 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate in storage, for use against Israel at some unspecified future date.  String Nasrallah up and anyone else who colluded with him and who bears responsibility for this criminal, deadly blast.

  70. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 143 for the acclaimed ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 49 since her one and only visit.  We hope she takes the job seriously but as most Californians know, she is incapable of whatever the job is.  Next, here are the numbers for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just today of caring for these foreigners: $535,134,592.  Second, here is the money spent on caring for these noncitizens overrunning the country for the year so far: $246,014,640,128.  Third, here are the numbers reported to have crossed into El Norte for the year: 2,521,453.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate for the number of illegal aliens roaming the country: 36,521,452.  (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- we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens, all of whom ICE must scoop up, imprisoned, and then deported ASAP).
  71. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Rep. Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says the American people ‘must pressure Joe Biden’ to go to the border and to do what his so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris WON’T do and that is to fix the mess he has created.  Meanwhile, as if things are not bad enough already, illegal aliens, i.e., border jumpers, river-swimmers, and fence-climbers, are accusing ICE holding them in cattle pens of NOT doing enough to protect them from the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  ICE disagrees with their claims, however.  Wow.  That must suck.  Elsewhere, leaked audio from Border Patrol agents has U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas saying on tape, “the U.S. is going to lose.”  Not good.  (Speaking of the DHS, they are raising the threat level surrounding the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks).
  72. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- in the span of a week, the Taliban is overrunning all of Afghanistan, fully two-thirds of the country is under strict Islamist control and even worse, they are at the gates of Kabul.  The Biden regime is trying to rush in 3,000 troops to aid in the evacuation of diplomatic staff and other chosen personnel, but it is highly doubtful they will be able to get there in time.  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden owns the Afghan debacle 100-percent.’  Meanwhile, as the Taliban prepares to roll into Kabul, U.S. embassy staff is hurriedly burning and shredding sensitive documents.  U.S. veterans of Afghanistan find themselves extremely pained over the unnecessary outcome befalling that troubled county, many of them having left parts of their bodies behind there.  Even more disgusting, the Chi-Coms are preparing to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of the war-ravaged country.  (Note- we hope the Taliban and the Chi-Coms go to war with one another which will happen in a matter of time, True Believers against godless communists, it will happen).
  73. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– COVID-19 ‘breakthrough’ cases are surging around the country what with 40-percent of all NEW cases being fully vaccinated patients.  These numbers are shocking but folks, put this one in your pipe and smoke it: illegal aliens pouring across the southern border now bear full responsibility for the 900-percent spike in new cases.  Horrible, absolutely horrible.  Next, the Food and Drug Administration approves a three-shot Chi-Vi regimen for all immunocompromised individuals.
  74. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– New reports show that the Chi-Coms pressured outside investigators NOT to tie the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to the lab leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology that has devastated the entire world.  Note Chi-Com expert and author Gordon Chang believes communist China is developing pathogens that can and will kill everyone else while leaving the Chi-Coms immune.  By monkeying with the DNA of various deadly pathogens, the Chi-Coms can target entire countries or whole races of human beings by using these so-called ‘civilization killers.’  In other ‘VID-related news, critics are slamming Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, for not disclosing that his wife has ties to one of the vaccine producing companies while all the while, Democrats such as “Mumbles” Pelosi and her husband apparently are heavily invested in these companies as we said yesterday. 
  75. 2021 Friday K: Health and Medical Alerts– A new IBD/TIPP Poll says that Americans believe the Chi-Vi to be our greatest national issue at the moment.  Speaking of which, the Biden regime finds itself mulling whether to demand that everyone who travels across state lines, i.e., interstate travel, must show papers to the border guards in which, they show 100-percent proof of vaccination for the Chi-Com virus.  “Show us your papers, please.”  You know folks, their time is coming, and it is coming sooner than anticipated.  In other COVID-19 news, Oregon, beset with large numbers of Xi Jinping Bat Flu cases is deploying the National Guard to hospitals around the state.
  76. 2021 Friday L: Health and Medical Alerts II– Stock prices for the BIG FOUR PHARMA companies producing vaccines for the Dink-a-Link Fever: (1) Pfizer $48.49 (2) Johnson & Johnson $176.15 (3) BioNTech $377.32 (4) Moderna $389.78.  Follow the money folks.  Hint- if investing in BIG PHARMA companies is good for the politicians, it is good enough for us, especially when consumers cannot hammer vaccine producers with lawsuits for any negative side effects.  In other health news, parents claim educators at a Lone Star State elementary school presented a profane public service announcement-type video promoting mask-wearing.  What was it?  Like when they bring in drag queens and trannys to read books to kindergartners?  Finally, San Francisco is becoming the first metropolitan area in the United States to require proof of 100-percent vaccination before people can go about their business.  Of course, this will not include the homeless, the addicted, the mentally ill street people, and illegal aliens from showing any proof of vaccination.  (What a load of crap).
  77. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden is at Camp David for the weekend so his Manchurian handlers can re-program the mindless automaton all the while, the Taliban is preparing the final assault on Kabul.  Givers everyone loads of confidence…in other Joe Biden news, illegal alien advocates are blasting the senile old coot, claiming his asylum policies are downright cruel.  Old dude cannot catch a break.
  78. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. Department of the Treasury has slapped sanctions on an alleged oil smuggler and on various companies tied to Iran’s Quds Force.   In other Biden regime news, Catholic luminaries are blasting the Biden regime’s Department of Justice for tossing out a lawsuit brought against the University of Vermont Medical Center last year while President Donald J. Trump was still in the White House.  The lawsuit sought to stop the University from forcing nurses to participate in elective abortions when their religious convictions would not permit them to do so.  The Biden regime continues pissing off one group after another.
  79. 2021 Friday O: Political News I– Mike Lindell’s breathtaking three-day Cyber Symposium (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) laid out the shocking evidence as to how the Chi-Coms and their stooges, the Dems stole the election for Joe Biden.  In so doing, various attendees including Mr. Lindell himself have faced physical threats from crazed leftists.  Keep fighting for the truth, Mr. Lindell, keep fighting.    
  80. 2021 Friday P: Political News II– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is raising the salaries of all Capitol Hill staffers as the White House and Congress continue shoving one massive spending bill on top of another.  Speaking of Speaker “Mumbles,” nine House Dems are demanding an immediate vote on the infrastructure bill.  Meanwhile, Rep. Mark Green, R-TN 7th congressional district, says that the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill is bait and switch for the oppressive $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  Rep. Darin LaHood, R-IL 18th congressional district, says that the ‘infrastructure and budget bills are going to cost too much.’  Other GOP House members introduced a bill with which to target Apple and Google app stores.  Good.
  81. 2021 Friday Q: Political News III– Four Republican senators are sitting on the fence as to whether they will run for re-election in 2022 or will hang it up.  The four are Chuck Grassley (Iowa), Lisa Murkowski (Alaska), Ron Johnson (Wisconsin), and Jon Thune (South Dakota) and one Democrat is joining them- Patrick Leahy (Vermont).  None of them have announced whether they will seek another term although Grassley is the oldest and Leahy the second oldest in the world’s greatest ‘deliberative body’ on the planet.
  82. 2021 Friday R: Political News IV– The (John) Durham probe into the ‘Trump-Russia collusion probe’ is looking into various ‘tipsters.’  In other political news, Barack Obama’s ‘wingman’ and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is saying ‘he’s surprised that millions of Americans aren’t out in the streets protesting the new voting laws being enacted around the country.’  Mr. Former AG, we are surprised you are not wearing an orange jump suit for your part in “Fast and Furious,” the program that allowed thousands of American firearms to ‘walk into Mexico’ where at least 10,000 Mexicans and two federal agents lost their lives at the hands of said firearms.
  83. 2021 Friday S: U.S. Supreme Court News I– Newest U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett rejects outright a plea from Indiana University students asking for a reprieve from the state’s new vaccine mandates for all college and university campuses.  Wow.  Excellent choice for a ‘conservative justice.’  Rep.

  86. 2021 Friday V: Business News– Thanks to harsh lockdowns and restrictions in New York City, Manhattan is seeing a record 21-percent in retail office and housing vacancies.  Both soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and Big Apple Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio have been down on their knees begging everyone to return.  Not going to happen.  Once you kill something such as NYC, it will be hell trying to bring it back.  Elsewhere, job posts requiring fully vaccinated employees have doubled in recent weeks. 
  87. 2021 Friday W: Economic News– The government announced today that a drastic drop in consumer confidence- 13.5-percent- occurred last month in July.  This is the seventh highest such drop in half-a-century.
  88. 2021 Friday X: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– One of the two thugs scooped up in Chicago for the slaying of Officer Ella French faces another problem: law enforcement has tied the little POS to a fatal hit-and-run back in April.
  89. 2021 Friday Y: Weather News I– It is summertime and the weather sure as heck is hot.  Cities in the Pacific Northwest are raising heat advisories.  (Note- folks, when it gets 90-degrees or so in the Northwest, people go berserk.  However, as soon as the sun goes down, temps drop down into the sixties.  It is what it is).
  90. 2021 Friday Z: Religion News– Much to the horror of liberals across the country, a new poll says that 72.9-percent of the American people (including 80-percent of black Americans) believe that Biblical values are extremely important.  We concur.

  92. 2021 Friday BB: Fake News I– In fake news of the day, we learned today that Snopes’ fact checking website Honcho did more than ‘just fact check;’ no, they published at least fifty-four articles of their own in which, they plagiarized at least fifty-four separate sources.  What is it with these leftists always stealing intellectual property of other, more talented creators?  Regarding Fake News, Rep.

  93. 2021 Friday CC: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J.

  96. 2021 Friday FF: New York State News– As if someone waved a magic wand, the Empire State’s Assembly is shutting down the impeachment investigation into outbound Governor Andrew “The Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov which means the immoral cretin will NEVER pay for the 15,000-16,000 nursing home deaths.  We guess, he should be thankful the citizens of his state merely booted him for being a sexual sleaze instead of law enforcement charging him with thousands of deaths.  When Cuomo was the state’s AG, he went after then-Governor Elliott Spitzer for schlepping high-end prostitutes.  What is fitting is the fact that Cuomo and Spitzer were Democrats and the AG who took Cuomo down also is a Democrat.
  97. 2021 Friday GG: Texas State News– Texas now is the first state to make paying for sex a felony.  We speculate loads of ‘johns’ will be contributing to sex workers’ college funds either for themselves or for their kids.  It is inevitable.

  100. 2021 Friday JJ: The Wrap-Up– Americans have long wanted to get out of Afghanistan, seeing it as little more than a perpetual meatgrinder of U.S. and Allied flesh.  Still, there are ways in which to do things and the way Joe Biden has abandoned the country to barbaric scum is incredible.  Much like the Obama-Biden regime abandoning Iraq to ISIS, now we have abandoned this country to similar human garbage, people that live in the dimly lit past, evil, despicable people.  The sad thing is, everything that is going on is like Joe Biden is the ’Antitrump,’ whatever Trump did, he must do the opposite, even if it beggars the mind.  President Trump would have gotten U.S. and NATO forces out in an orderly manner and if the Taliban popped up, he would have zapped them like the cockroaches they are.  Now, the Chi-Coms and the Russians can enter the crap-hole, rob it of its resources, while helping the jihadists launch plots in the West.  Folks, no one voted for this crap, not even most Democrats we would suspect.   We must return President Trump to the White House, and it must happen NOW.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  101. 2022 Saturday: The Joestapo and Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland must believe the American people are dimwits.  As if on cue- as with Cesar Sayoc, the mad pipe bomber, and the poor saps in the so-called Gretchen Whitmer attempted kidnapping case- the FBI finds another ‘tool’ in its shed of losers: Ricky Shiffer.  Mr. Shiffer was the poor schmo who went to the Cincinnati FBI office and sought to launch an attack on our glorious Joestapo agents but then fled.  After an hour’s standoff, the local cops shot poor Mr. Shiffer dead, a man who- conveniently- posted on Facebook, Twitter, or whatever other social media platform- so the Joestapo says- about his desire to mow down FBI agents following the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  Once again, as with Lee Harvey Oswald and Jack Ruby, as with Sirhan Bashara Sirhan, and as with James Earl Ray- and Cesar Sayoc- the FBI would have us believe these people are lurking in the woodwork ready to commit all manner of heinous assaults on our esteemed government officials.  Friends, I hate to label stuff as BULLSHIT, but this is bullshit.  Once again, the FBI pulls out some poor sap, send him out to serve a purpose, and then see him get killed.  Thus, they can go out and bellow, “SEE!  SEE!  WHITE EXTREMISTS OPPOSED TO THE JOE BIDEN REGIME ARE OUT THERE!”  When I was young, I used to buy this crap whereas now, I can smell a rat each and every time.  It is the same with Ray Epps, the number one antagonist and instigator in January 6, 2021, where the hell is that POS son-of-a-bitch?  Why is he not locked away in the D.C. gulag like the rest of the patriots?  Because the man works for the FBI as either an informant or as an agent, that’s why.  I don’t buy this crap anymore nor should any of you.  It is akin to a BIG DRAMA being run by some truly inept people behind the draperies.   Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

  61. 2013 Monday: The International Olympic Committee announces it will punish athletes who support Russia’s harsh laws restricting the LGBT community.  Meanwhile, in Nashville, Tennessee, outlaw country and western star, Tompall Glasser[v], lost his battle with prolonged illness on this date and died at age 799.  Elsewhere, a jury convicted feared Boston mob boss James “Whitey” Bulger, one of the nation’s most-wanted fugitives.  The jury found him guilty in a string of eleven killings and dozens of other gangland crimes, many of them committed while sources said Bulger was an FBI informant.  He is now living out the rest of his days in a federal penitentiary.
  62. 2014 Tuesday: To halt the ISIS thugs from overrunning Iraq, President Barack Obama announces his plan to send 705 U.S. military personnel to help the beleaguered nation.  However, the President says the troops will not take part in combat operations.
  63. 2015 Wednesday: During a recent surgery on his liver, former President Jimmy Carter announces that an unspecified cancer has spread throughout his body and is fatal. 
  64. 2016 Friday: Causing much Muslim outrage, Cannes becomes the first French resort to band the burkini.  Good for you! 
  65. 2017 Saturday: A car plowed into a crowd of violent Antifa protesters who were counter-protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, killing Heather Heyer, 32, and hurting more than a dozen others.  The Ohio man accused in the attack, James Alex Fields, 21, would face a state murder charge and federal hate crimes charges, which are bullshit.  President Donald Trump condemned what he called “this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.” Democrats and some Republicans called on Trump to specifically denounce white supremacy.  Fake news ginned up the coverage to make the President appear a bigot, which is bullshit.  Meanwhile, during the protest, two Virginia state police officers died in a helicopter crash while monitoring the violent Antifa-caused protests below them.  Everyone blames white nationalism and President Trump, but the Democrats and fake news scum vilify those they deem culpable while giving a pass to the real criminals involved here, Antifa and Governor Terry McAuliffe who told the police officers to stand down so the Antifa thugs could beat on their opponents unmolested.
  66. 2018 Sunday: NASA launches the Parker Space Probe, its first mission to study the Sun and its corona.   Meanwhile, after three days of attacks by the Taliban across the entire country of Afghanistan, the Afghan government announces at least two hundred dead Afghan security forces. 
  67. 2019 Monday: In the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the medical community announces that thanks to new drug tests, they are 90-percent closer to a cure for Ebola as the medications they were testing were extremely successful.  Meanwhile, in Hong Kong, the government announces a closure of the former British colony’s airports as pro-democracy protesters flood them.  People want freedom and the Chi-Coms on the mainland are doing everything possible to quash them.   
  68. 2020 Wednesday: Joe Biden and Senator Kamala Harris make their first appearance as a ticket in Wilmington, Delaware, today.  The former vice president was able to follow the teleprompter most of the way but there were a few times when he began to falter.  Perhaps he requires a shock collar around his neck so every time his eyes begin going fuzzy and his words fall by the wayside, Dr. Jill can give him a quick ZAP to pull him back on course.   Just saying.   Note: the Biden-Harris campaign raised $10.8 million within four hours of announcing that “Groping Joe” Biden had chosen the unpopular California senator to be his vice president.  Hmmm.
  69. 2020 Wednesday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,423,897 confirmed cases, UP by 299,460 cases, 744,629 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,364 deaths, and 12,631,548 confirmed recoveries, UP by 251,138 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,255,928 confirmed cases, UP by 55,552 new cases, 167,361 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,474 new deaths, and 2,648,373 confirmed recoveries, UP by 109,673 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they will not- corrupt SOBs).

[vii]  
  73. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 317,210 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 86,868 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  74. 2021 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,100,810 confirmed cases, 64,551 confirmed deaths (DOWN), and 2,182,776 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,854,548 confirmed cases, 40,171 confirmed deaths, and 2,309,167 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 48,397 confirmed cases, 546 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 505,815 confirmed cases, 6,264 confirmed deaths, and 236,141 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Arkansas: they have 413,150 confirmed cases, 6,396 confirmed deaths, and 382,207 confirmed recoveries. [viii]    
  75. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 924,762 confirmed cases, 6,604 confirmed deaths, and 874,977 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Mauritius, 177th country on the list: 5,349 cases of the virus, 21 confirmed deaths and 1,854 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  76. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,499.85, UP 14.88 points (+0.042%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,816.26, UP 51.13 points (+0.35%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,460.83, UP 13.13 points (+0.30%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.83 per barrel, -0.26 (-0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,754.80 per troy oz., +3.00 (+0.17%) while the price of SILVER is $23.18 per troy ounce, +0.06 (+0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,014.90 per troy oz, -2.80 (-0.28%) while the price of COPPER is $4.36 per pound, 0.00 (+0.09%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,616.85 per troy oz, -7.45 (-0.28%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $19,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $780,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,574.25 per troy oz., -12.00 (-0.46%).  [xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000022.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Nicaraguan Córdoba, one greenback equals 35.08 and in Nigerian Naira, a buck equal 411.50 and in Norwegian Krone, one dollar equals 8.85 of theirs. [xiii]        
  77. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt AND Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.396 per gallon, $3.016 in Florida, $4.093 in Hawaii, and $3.881 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other location- North Dakota: $3.131.  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- Senegal: $5.250 per U.S. Gallon. [xv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,633,797,855,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xvi] 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 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 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,923,443.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,725,319,325.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,507,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,507,919. [xvii]  (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.  Reports also say that during the month of July there were 212,000 border crossings, something unseen in 21 years.
  79. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– On behalf of the people of Cuba, the U.S. Senate passed a bill before fleeing D.C. for the summer that will provide uncensored internet to the freedom-fighting peoples rebelling against the communist government.  (Note- why not provide them guns, senators?).  In other news from across the world, the Taliban has overrun Kandahar and the Pentagon now predicts the fall of Kabul in a month or less.  Can anyone remind us again as to WHY we remained in that spineless crap-hole of a nation and shed the lives and limbs of our troops as well as trillions of dollars?  Let the Chi-Coms have the place.  Worse, the Biden regime is sending 3,000 U.S. troops BACK into Afghanistan to help evacuate our embassy in Kabul.  This is crazy.
  80. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Always seeking to set the template for the country, California becomes the first state in the Union to require EVERY teacher and staff member at all schools to undergo vaccination for the Chi-Vi or to face weekly, invasive tests for the wily Chi-Com disease.  The Oxford University vaccinations group say that ‘herd immunity is impossible to achieve with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu variants.’  Sounds like yet another excuse to keep the American people locked down.  Good luck with that.  Next, as government continues trying to force the American people to undergo vaccination for the Wuhan Virus Crisis, we learn today that Pfizer’s vaccine is effective 43-percent while Moderna’s is effective 76-percent against the Delta variant.
  81. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of the vaccines, let us look at the stock prices of the BIG FOUR pharmaceutical companies.  Remember, since the advent of vaccines for the Chi-Vi there are forty new BIG PHARMA billionaires ALL from selling the vaccines to the U.S. government.  First, Pfizer’s stock is low, valued at $47.24 today.  Next, Johnson & Johnson’s stock price is $175.17.  After J & J comes BioNTech at $374.02 and last but not least, the market values Moderna’s stock at $391.42.  We will keep our eyes on BIG PHARMA stocks.  Meanwhile, because of the increase in Chi-Vi cases thanks to the surge of infected illegal aliens along the southern border, Facebook has ordered office workers NOT to return to the office until January 2022.
  82. 2021 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney, DS-PA, launches his order today that stipulates ALL city employees and contractors (and visitors) MUST get the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine or wear masks (and suffer treatment like second class citizens).
  83. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden’s polling ratings continue their ominous, downward slide yet no mainstream media news anchor is discussing his crumbling lack of popularity.  (They want to keep the regime propped up).  Meanwhile, first mentioned yesterday, Joe Biden is begging- begging! – OPEC and Russia to increase production so he can find a way to lower surging gasoline prices in the United States.  All the befuddled old fool must do is to get the hell out of the way and allow American production of fossil fuel energy to soar.
  84. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– The CIA is weighing the establishment of a communist China division in a bid to ‘out-spy’ the Chi-Coms.  We are sorry but this something that the Central Intelligence Agency should have been created back in the 1990s.  We cannot believe this but if true, it shows how pathetic our government is at recognizing true threats around the world.  Like the eye of Sauron, BIG GOVERNMENT is searching for homegrown terrorists.  What a load of festering crap.
  85. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– As Democrats continue waging war on Mike Lindell’s cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota- both cyber and even physical as in the case of Mr. Lindell himself- President Donald J. Trump says that the Democrats ‘MUST NOT be allowed to get away with the murder of Ashli Babbitt.  President Trump also said that the Dems’ $35 trillion budget bill is a ‘communist plot to destroy the United States.’  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Democrats’ spending will erode Americans’ freedoms and drive-up inflation.’  Meanwhile, Twitter suspends Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s account for- shock of shocks- another week.  Rep. Greene as you all know represents the 14th congressional district in the Peach State. 
  86. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says- get this- that he has ‘serious concerns’ about his fellow Democrats’ $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill.  (Note- we predict that he will vote for it anyway).  In other Democrat-related news, following the resignations or retirements of almost one-thousand Chicago police officers as well as the horrible murder of new mom and officer Ella French, Mayor Lori “Frog-Face” Lightfoot is requesting a sizable increase for the Windy City police officers.  Speaking of Democrats, soon-to-be-governor of the Empire State- Kathy Hochul- is doing everything she can to distance herself from outbound Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  Some say she may have had a hand in ALL the nursing home deaths of COVID-19 patients.
  87. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $7 million in the month of July.  Regarding the GOP, they managed to block the “For the People Act” from coming to a vote before everyone in Washington, D.C., flees the capital for August recess.  When they return, the Democrats will force it through to Joe Biden’s desk.  Speaking of the Democrats, House Blue Dogs begged Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, to hold a standalone vote on the ‘infrastructure bill’ but she said, “No dice.”  Meanwhile, a new poll says that a ‘majority of Democrats prefer socialism to capitalism.’  (Note- that is brainwashing for you.  We must reclaim our schools).    
  88. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– President Donald J. Trump endorsed former U.S. Navy Seal Derrick Van Orden to win the seat of retiring Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district.  Van Orden ran for the seat back in 2020 and lost it by 3-points.  We expect he will do much better with President Trump’s endorsement in 2022.  President Trump also says that the American people are turning off Fox News.  In other news, mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, running to replace Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio, DS-NYC, said that CNN ‘must fire Governor Cuomo’s brother Chris.’  Amen.
  89. 2021 Thursday Q: Miscellaneous News I– A Georgia mother claims her kids’ elementary school district segregated them.  Thus, she is taking the fight to the Department of Education’s Civil Rights Division for resolution.  It is that flipping Criminal Race, uh, Critical Race Theory BS yet again.  Speaking of the DOE, Secretary Miguel Cardona backs forced vaccinations for ALL public schools’ staff members- NO exceptions.  Elsewhere, it appears that Jaime Spears, the leech-like father sucking daughter Britney dry, has relinquished his role as conservatorship.
  90. 2021 Thursday R: New York State News– New York State Rep. Colin Schmitt, R-NY 99th Assembly District, says that the ‘Cuomo impeachment probe must continue.’  Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, questions WHY Governor Cuomo is stick around for two weeks- is he destroying evidence? 
  91. 2021 Thursday S: Texas State News– The Lone Star State’s election security bill passed in the Texas State Senate.  Meanwhile, as various Democrat-controlled locales in the state attempt to stymie the NO MASK MANDATE order signed by Governor Greg Abbott, via the courts, he is taking the fight to the scoundrel Democrats.  Moreover, he is also telling mentally deficient Joe Biden to ‘let Texas produce our oil.’  Next- and this is a good one- the NAACP is urging the Department of Justice to launch a probe into the arrest warrants for the wayward Democrats still hiding out in Washington, D.C.  “Racist,” don’t you know to expect the elected politicians to do their frigging jobs.
  92. 2021 Thursday T: Weather News I– Democrats across the country are huddling in corners, wetting their undergarments because of sizzling summer weather in North America.  Many cities are declaring heat advisories.  Oh, heaven forbid.
  93. 2022 Friday: Yesterday, we witnessed one of the most nauseating spectacles ever: Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland laying out the groundwork for why he launched the raid on Mar-a-Lago.  What an embarrassment this man is to both the legal profession and the country.  I will say now that he will become the second U.S. AG to go to prison, in the footsteps of John N. Mitchell, the nation’s 67th U.S. attorney general.  I suspect there will be MORE members of the fraudulent Biden regime going to the federal slammer than there were members of the Nixon administration, starting at the very top and going down to various denizens of the Deep State.  I suspect the only one not going to the slammer will be poor Kamala, “California’s shame.”  That girl, my friends, is a blooming moron.   Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.[xviii]

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 next studio album came out on June 05, 2012: “That’s Why God Made the Radio.”  It’s been quite a while since the last studio album which is why the aging Beach Boys spent a lot of time in making this album with a reconfigured lineup: Brian Wilson (vocals), Mike Love (vocals), Bruce Johnston (vocals), Alan Jardine (vocals), and David Marks (guitars and vocals).  To perform the instruments, a humongous number of supporting musicians- including many of the touring band members- participated in the recording of the album.  Most critics enjoyed it, some even comparing it to “Sunflower” while several sourpuss losers panned it.  Say what you will about a band that’s been around for half-a-century, nothing is ever as it was but this is close enough.  Besides, this album hit No. 3 on the U.S. charts which was their highest placement in, uh, 38 years, so what more can be said?  Seek it out now and add it to your collection- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

223. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 2022

If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise. The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out. Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.

  51. 2019 Sunday:  The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend.  None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement, they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety.  Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
  52. 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it is NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly).  She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee.  It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, since dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India.  There you go.  If we, were you, Joe, we would sleep with one eye open from this point onward?  
  53. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02.  She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off one hundred officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it. 
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,185,153 confirmed cases, UP by 227,115 cases, 738,800 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,911 deaths, and 12,450,681 confirmed recoveries, UP by 292,606 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,224,867 confirmed cases, UP by 65,127 new cases, 166,456 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 2,623,403 confirmed recoveries, UP by 111,801 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  55. 2020 Tuesday C: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, thirty-four confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN).  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers your malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.

[xiv]  
  58. 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 316,875 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 87,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xv]    
  60. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 918,237 confirmed cases, 6,587 confirmed deaths, and 871,230 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Liberia, 176th country on the list: 5,459 cases of the virus, 148 confirmed deaths and 2,715 confirmed recoveries.

[xx]        
  62. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt AND Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.393 per gallon, $3.017 in Florida, $4.095 in Hawaii, and $3.878 in Washington state. [xxi]    Let us look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.931.  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- Northern Macedonia: $5.194 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,630,008,130,917 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  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 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.
  63. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,303,378.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,724,395,892.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,497,274.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,497,419. [xxiv]  (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.  (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).[xxv]
  64. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea says that the United States is failing to improve relations between the two countries.  Meanwhile, the Taliban conquer their eighth provincial capital in Afghanistan.  Many believe that Kabul will implode within three months.  Joe Biden’s mouthpiece, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, says that Joe ‘does not believe the collapse of Afghanistan is inevitable’ yet it will happen because of the way regime leader Biden conducted the pull-out.  Elsewhere, for some unknown reason, the U.S. State Department is sending $50 million to totalitarian Myanmar ostensibly to help around 700,000 people address COVID-19 concerns.  Why aren’t the Chi-Coms helping their fellow thugs?
  65. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The COVID-19 Nazis are at it again: YouTube has suspended the account of Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, over the bold senator’s recent criticisms of mask and vaccine mandates.  Speaking of mandates, drooling Joe Biden says (or his earpiece says) that HE will overrule like God on High bans on mask wearing in public schools.  Go for it, Joe, go for it.  Next, the Pentagon says that ‘most troops will respond positively to being compelled to get Chi-Vi vaccines.’  Moving on, the FDA is seeking clearance to mandate a third Chi-Vi vaccine injection for transplant patients.
  66. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke led tens of thousands of Wisconsinites in demanding an audit of the 2020 Presidential and national elections.  Across the nation, more people are standing up demanding that their state’s 2020 Election results undergo a forensic audit.  At Sioux City, South Dakota, as Mike Lindell and his patriotic colleagues were producing ream after ream after ream of evidence, he discovered live on air that a federal judge was going to allow the Dominion Voting Systems multiple lawsuits to proceed against the pillow magnate and his allies.  It is clear from listening to the two days so far that the 2020 Elections a cabal of rat-eating Chi-Com scum, Democratic-Socialists, and their obsequious RINO allies manipulated the elections to their desire if not actively reversed the results.  The time is coming, and it is coming soon when all of this will find its way into the courts.  The Department of Homeland Security is warning local police department to keep an eye out for election deniers.
  67. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden News I– Flipflopping from yesterday, slobbering old Joe Biden supports New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s resignation over his obsessive grabbing, fondling, and kissing of unwilling women and men.  Joe, they will be coming for YOU next, you old Cho-Mo.  (Speaking of “Killer” Cuomo, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, calls for the arrest and prosecution of the devious governor once he is out of office.  In other Cuomo news, his ex, Sandra Lee, feels betrayed that the groper took credit for granting homosexual marriage rights in the Empire State.  Apparently, she twisted him by the gonads to do this.
  68. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– The U.S. Senate passed the massive $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that will further impoverish the United States while stuffing massive amounts of cash into the pockets of Democrats, their sycophant RINO allies, and labor unions while everyone else will suffer.   Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, blasted the Democrats’ reckless ‘tax and spend’ policies.  He ripped into the scurrilous Democrats moments before the passage of the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill of which ONLY seven percent is ‘infrastructure.’  The rest is free pork to leftwing locales, liberal politicians, and of course the omnipresent Chi-Coms.  (The Republicans are telling the Democrats to ‘go it alone’ on raising the debt ceiling).  However, the Senate passed a GOP-led amendment that prohibits government from using federal funds to promote Critical (Criminal) Race Theory in government and in education.  Unfortunately, the Democrats can always remove or negate the amendment later like they almost always do when it comes to the horror of abortion.   Finally, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, voted against the ‘infrastructure bill.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, endorsed Ohio GOP Senate candidate and author J.D. Vance in the race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Rob Portman.   In other political news, former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos says she will NOT seek the governorship of Michigan in 2022.  In other news, the speaker of the Texas state house signed arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats who are holding up progress.  Meanwhile, longtime Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district, says he will not seek re-election.  He has served the citizens of his district since 1997. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– A gunowners rights group is fighting for the right to open carry firearms at the Minnesota State Fair.  Speaking of Second Amendment rights, President Donald J. Trump is congratulating Governor Mike Parson, R-MO, for pardoning the gun-wielding couple who defended their home in last year’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests.  Leftwing trash brazenly targeted Mark and Patricia McCloskey in their front yard.  The couple stood by armed to the teeth while the mob seethed about them in the street threatening to murder them, rape Patricia McCloskey, kill the family pets, and to burn their home down in the private community.
  71. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News IV– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her Squad-backed group are hailing cop killers.  What is wrong with these leftist skanks?  Strip these hateful skanks of their protection squads and let them fend for themselves.
  72. 2021 Wednesday O: California State News– Oakland, California, city officials are calling on Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to declare a state of emergency over rising violent crime rates across the city.  These people are Democrats!
  73. 2021 Wednesday P: Texas State News– Texas counties have won court orders blocking Governor Greg Abbott’s mask ban mandates.  They want masks.  Governor Abbott also fired a shot across the bow of the tranny movement by comparing gender transformation surgeries for children to be child abuse.
  74. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3585 what with a $7 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 12, 21, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 89,125 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,064 apiece.    Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #871 with a jackpot of $241 million up for grabs: 12, 18, 20, 29, 30, and Powerball 16.  Out of 92,051 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but no Powerball for a prize of $4,4772,553.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Temecula, CA 92592.
  75. 2021 Wednesday R: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– In his hometown of Akron, Ohio, heavyweight boxer Michael “Dynamite” Dokes dies at age 54, one day after his birthday.  Over the course of his pro career, he held numerous titles and amassed a record of 61 fights, 53 wins (33 KOs), 6 losses, and 2 draws.
  76. 2021 Wednesday S: The Wrap-Up– We learned today that the Biden regime is begging OPEC and associated nations to increase oil production so gasoline prices within the United States will drop.  Folks, didn’t this stumblebum bozo clamp down on virtually every fossil fuel production project that he could within the United States so he could usher in a brave new era of solar panels and wind energy?  Whether we produce our own oil supplies or import them, we are still burning the same amount of oil.  If we produce it, we are energy independent and if we import it and rely on those sources, we sure as hell are not.  Friends, this is frigging insane and the sooner the courts begin hearing the election fraud cases on merit, the sooner we might decapitate this faux regime.  We are Americans, we are free people, and we are not going to put up with this bullshit.  NOT threatening any violence upon anyone, just saying.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  77. 2022 Thursday: The next three months are going to be a dangerous time for the American people as the closer Election Day draws near, the more desperate the Biden regime and its Joestapo thugs will become.  They thought sending the Joestapo down to Mar-a-Lago was going to be the magic bullet, yet, the bullet had the opposite effect, people are growing angrier by the minute.  As a former Democrat, I KNOW Democrats, many Democrats in fact, and they are telling me that this ‘ain’t good, Fritz, it ain’t good.’  People are wary of what is happening to our country and whether one likes Donald Trump, or they do not, most can agree on one thing: thanks to him, we are now 100-percent aware as to the existence of the Deep State and most everyone will do everything possible to DESTROY IT.  We elect our leaders, and the bureaucrats are obligated to follow their directions.  If they don’t like it, they can frigging quit.  It is not up to scum such as James Clapper, that fat pig, John Brennan, that deviant POS James Comey, and the rest of the inbred political hacks scattered throughout government to topple elected leaders.  If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise.  The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out.  Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.  It has NEVER been clearer than it is now.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Today’s album is the next studio album by Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, his second collaboration with the Disney Corporation- “In the Key of Disney”- which came out on October 25, 2011.  Disney was NOT yet WOKE like they would be a decade later which is why this album makes it into our presentation.  Brian ‘reimagines’ the Disney movie classics of the day in a way in which, only he can.  You have remakes of many tunes from various feature animated films whether it be “The Lion King,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Toy Story,” and loads of others well before everything became transgender, gay, lesbo, homo, you name it, all the devious, sick shit Disney now stands for.  Alas, it is what it is, we hope you seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in music and give it a listen.  Perhaps, you might like it.  Enjoy.

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022

2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus. Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated. We knew something was wrong with these vaccines. It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House…

EVERYONE’S FAVORITE GERMAN CHEF: FRITZ SCHLEPENDRECHT

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022:

Bush chose Porter Goss, a Republican congressman and one-time spy, to lead the CIA.  Meanwhile, the 20-year-old woman who had accused Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers of rape filed a federal lawsuit in Denver against the NBA star.  However, the criminal charge was later dropped; the lawsuit was settled out of court, terms undisclosed.  Finally, Barry Bonds became the first player in Major League history to hit thirty home runs in thirteen consecutive seasons, connecting in San Francisco’s 8-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Elsewhere, a boat carrying Dominican illegal aliens seeking a better life in Puerto Rico drifted back to almost the same spot where they commenced their voyage, nearly two weeks earlier.  At least fifty-five of the eighty-six illegals on board died. 
  50. 2006 Thursday: British authorities announced they had thwarted a terrorist plot to simultaneously blow up ten aircraft heading to the U.S. using explosives smuggled in hand luggage.  Ah, although left unsaid, one must love the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.

  56. 2016 Wednesday: Candidate Donald J. Trump slams the ‘dishonest news media’ for misinterpreting his comments on how a ‘President Hillary Clinton will abolish the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.’  Sounds like the truth to everyone with half-a-mind or more; let us see who wins in November…
  57. 2017 Thursday: U.S. President Donald J. Trump announces that opioid addiction in the country now is a national emergency.  It has been for quite a while thanks to the People’s Republic of China continuing to ship fentanyl and other opiates into the United States as a reverse opium war of sorts.  People, time to start pushing the Chin back.  Meanwhile, as the #MeToo Movement continues to grind on, a sobbing Taylor Swift announces that deejay David Mueller groped her in Denver, Colorado.  Uh, okay…
  58. 2018 Friday:  The U.N. Committee on Human Rights receives word that the Chi-Coms have one million Uighurs- at least!- in concentration camps in western China where they provide slave labor to American sports team making gear and other paraphernalia while being indoctrinated with ‘how great Xi Jinping and Maoism are’ while being forced to surrender their religious beliefs.  Yet, American sports stars look the other way, folks, look the other way…

  60. 2020 Monday: The Chi-Coms today sanctioned 11 U.S. politicians or business heads, all of them Republicans or with organizations promoting democracy, seemingly in a feeble attempt at ‘punishing America’ for punishing them over their misdeeds in Hong Kong and elsewhere as well as for giving the world the Chinese Bat Plague.  Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, here are today’s statistics:  
  61. 2020 Monday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 19,936,547 confirmed cases, +202,119, 732,467 confirmed deaths, +3,855, and 12,144,510 confirmed recoveries, +142,973.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,159,740 confirmed cases, UP by 38,647 new cases, 165,118 confirmed deaths, UP by 477 new deaths, and 2,511,602 confirmed recoveries, UP by 13,023 new recoveries.

  64. 2020 Monday D: President Trump begins a press conference in the White House Press Room when an aide interrupts him and leads him away.  Apparently, shots were fired a few blocks from the White House.  Moments later, Secret Service had it under control and the president reappeared and continued his press conference.  He answered all questions and when done, exited the room. Currently, “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads the president in national polls by 49.2-percent to the president’s 42.00-percent. 
  65. 2020 Monday E: Speaking of the Chi-Coms earlier, the MSS begins arresting pro-democracy figures across Hong Kong, including arresting media mogul Jimmy Lai and his son, among others, as the communists begin implementing their new bogus ‘security law.’  The time is coming when the United States is going to have to give the commies in Beijing a major black eye.  How a return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as a free, independent nation, and the rightful ruler of the mainland.  FREE TAIWAN!  FREE HONG KONG!  FREE TIBET!  FREE MACAU!  FREE UIGHUR MUSLIMS!  DEATH TO COMMUNISM!
  66. 2020 Monday F: A U.S. military helicopter out of Joint Base Andrews was hit by groundfire over Middleburg, Va., today, wounding one crewmember aboard.  The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing at a regional airport in Manassas.  The FBI is investigating.  Meanwhile, over the weekend in Chicago, thirty-four people are shot, three of them fatally.  Will it never f—ing end?  How long have Democrats controlled the Windy City?

[vii]  
  68. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 315,875 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 88,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  69. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,076,572 confirmed cases, 64,852 confirmed deaths, and 2,129,828 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,827,450 confirmed cases, 39,934 confirmed deaths, and 2,306,339 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 47,376 confirmed cases, 543 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 498,096 confirmed cases, 6,235 confirmed deaths, and 235,124 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Utah: they have 441,131 confirmed cases, 2,511 confirmed deaths, and 421,906 confirmed recoveries. [viii]    
  70. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 910,569 confirmed cases, 6,571 confirmed deaths, and 867,747 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Isle of Man, 175th location on the list: 5,658 cases of the virus, thirty-three confirmed deaths and 4,821 confirmed recoveries.

[xiii]        
  72. 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 $4.392 per gallon, $3.018 in Florida, $4.093 in Hawaii, and $3.875 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Montana: $3.292.  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- Zimbabwe: $5.113 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,626,623,832,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  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 United Kingdom, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318 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.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 140 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 46th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $532,913,238.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,703,429,068.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,486,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,486,823. [xvii]  (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.  (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).
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– House Republicans are demanding that the Department of Homeland Security explain why it has become so easy to swarm across the U.S.-Mexico border into the United States.  Illegal aliens are overwhelming the country and DHS is standing idly by.  This is becoming an invasion.  Because of the problems along the border, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has offered articles of impeachment for U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea threatened today to begin working anew on its nuclear weapons programs and missiles because South Korea and the United States are back to holding joint military exercises.  Elsewhere, a Chi-Com court upholds a death sentence imposed upon a Canadian ‘drug trafficker’ Robert Lloyd.  Canada should take note of this outrage because as a junior participant in the fraudulent 2020 Elections in the United States via their Dominion Voting Systems machines, look at how their Beijing masters have rewarded them- death sentence for a Canadian citizen.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci warns that ‘vaccine mandates are coming following full approval by the Food and Drug Administration of the various emergency use Chi-Vi vaccines.  (Note- Mike Lindell said at his symposium today in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, that the FDA can clear a drug for emergency use only if no other treatments of any kind exist for whatever the disease is.  This means that Democrats, RINOs, and the media assaulted President Donald J. Trump anytime he mentioned safe and cheap hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, they went berserk and tore great hunks of hair from their bald pates.  Interesting to know, Mr. Lindell, thank you).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, he and the Centers for Disease Control are finding themselves slammed with multiple lawsuits over the draconian lockdowns and harsh restrictions the mercurial Dr. Fauci and his partners in crime continue forcing on the American people.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Joe Biden says he likely does not have the power to interfere in various states’ anti-mask and anti-lockdown mandates but sure the heck is looking into it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– If one does not believe that communist thugs hold power in the United States, think again.  As Mesa County, Colorado, elections clerk Tina Peters was on her way to join Mike Lindell’s 72-hour cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, today, while she was aboard Mr. Lindell’s aircraft, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, Democratic-Socialist, and a ban of flunkies raided the election offices of Mesa County.  Denied entry to see what was going on over the course of the 3-4 hours the political hacks rooted through everything like hogs, sticking their snouts into every crevice, every nook, and every cranny, they were unable to witness the events, nor were they informed as to what the storm troopers removed.  Americans must take note of these fascist tactics.
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: 2020 Election Audit– Dominion Systems is suing Newsmax for reporting that the Canadian-based company whom the AICPENDBLOG.COM alleges works for the Chi-Coms.  Mike Lindell’s three-day cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, SD, continues exposing just how devious the voting machine company appears to be.  It is going to be difficult for this corrupt company to stand stark naked in the bright light of day so the more patriotic Americans and other patriots around the world call them out, the sooner we can achieve answers and rectify and repair the damage Dominion Systems has caused the world.  Additionally, Mike Lindell and his team of cyber experts appear to have found sufficient evidence to lay the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for conducting a massive cyber-attack on all fifty states on and around November 03, 2020.  Most Americans agree that this amounts to an act of war and when combined with the Chi-Coms’ release of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, there is much for which, the communist scumbags must answer.  We have said this before and will say it again, but the Wuhan Virus allowed them to kill two birds with one stone: first, it helped them get rid of Donald Trump via colluding with the Democrats, Trump-hating RINOs, and Dominion Voting Systems and second, it helped them crush the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.  For this, they must pay.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I– Regime leader Joe Biden claims ‘it’s up to Afghanistan to defend its own country as the Taliban overrun six provincial capitals.  Then, later in the day, the drooling moron says through his mouthpiece that ‘it’s not a foregone conclusion the Taliban is going to run the Middle Eastern country.’
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– We learned today that the National Security Administration’s inspector general is looking into allegations made by Fox News host Tucker Carlson that the NSA was ‘spying on me.’  We bet they will produce nothing and yet, the surveillance will continue.
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News I– Today is Day No. 1 for Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame to hold his cyber symposium and what an opening day it was.  IF you think Joe Biden truly won the 2020 Presidential Election, well, watch the symposium and let us know what you think AFTER viewing it.  We think Joe Biden is walking on thin ice which is why the Democrats are going bat crap crazy.
  83. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News II– Prominent Pro-Life group Susan B. Anthony List made its first political endorsement for the 2022 Mid-Term Elections by endorsing Governor Henry McMaster, R-SC.  Elsewhere, the Texas Supreme Court has upheld the arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats issued by Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX.  In other news, Eli Bremer, R-CO, is throwing his hat into the ring for a U.S. Senate seat in 2022.  Next, the Wyoming GOP has censured wayward Rep. Liz Cheney yet again.  Finally, Governor Tony Evers, DS-WI, has vetoed several election integrities bills.
  84. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News III– New York politicians are still angry at soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and have said they may well impeach the man so he cannot run for any statewide election ever again.  Interestingly enough, when queried by reporters about Governor Cuomo’s sexual harassment woes, Joe Biden said of his close friend and confidant that ‘Governor Cuomo sets the gold standard for Democrats.’[xviii]  Whoa, Joe.  In other political news, the Atlantic magazine reports that senile U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi will ‘most likely step down shortly after the conclusion of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.’  Sure.  Of course, she will.
  85. 2021 Tuesday R: U.S. Senate News I– Early today, the Senate planned to hold the final vote on the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Later in the day- with the help of 19 Republican scumbags- the Democrats ramrod this shyster bill through.  Once they rammed this bogus piece of dog feces through Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, trotted out the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill as the next chink in the Biden regime’s chain of collapsing the United States Cloward and Piven-style.  Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a brave patriot immediately offered fifteen amendments to this horrendous bill.  Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, told Newsmax that the Dems’ ‘infrastructure bill is going to add mountains of debt atop America’s taxpayers.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday S: Business News– Small business optimism that was riding high in July has plummeted in the first 10 days of August due to vast labor shortages.
  87. 2021 Tuesday T: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former U.S. Department of Agriculture official Richard Homan received a sentence of 180 days home confinement for his part in a bribery scandal.
  88. 2021 Tuesday U: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump expressed concern that the Biden regime’s U.S. Department of Justice will bury the Durham report should it become available for release.
  89. 2021 Tuesday V: New York State News– It appears that the headhunters have succeeded.  A morose, near-tears Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov announced that effective in 14 days, he will be vacating the office of governor of the Empire State.
  90. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Military News– The United States and twenty allied nations kick off the 2021 Southeast Asian Cooperation and Training, aka SEACAT, joint military exercises.
  91. 2021 Tuesday X: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1684 what with a $208 million jackpot on the line: 29, 45, 50, 59, 62, and Mega 12.  Out of 89,761 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,638 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday Y: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Oregon University volleyball coaches said today that they have the right to discipline their players over their political views.  Welcome BIG BROTHER.
  93. 2021 Tuesday Z: The Wrap-Up– It is better late than never, folks.  Last night, our computer systems were under continuous attack, either from the Chi-Coms or from our own government.  A miniscule blogging site such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM one would think would be small fish for BIG BROTHER apparatchiks going after the bigger guys but we guess NO ONE is too small for persecution and punishment.  Well, we say, “F**K them, we will continue fighting back because the American people are a free people, and we will never surrender to oppressive left-wing trash.  It is what it is, folks.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  94. 2022 Wednesday: There are so many other things of which to speak but what happened at Mar-a-Lago takes the cake.  The American people are clearly unhappy over the heavy-handedness exercised by the Justice Department and its Joestapo.  Imagine, the Joestapo arriving at your home, searching through everything, carting things away for inspection later?  All I can surmise is that the Biden regime wants to plant evidence on Donald Trump.  What will they ‘find,’ Ashley Biden’s diary, the one in which, she laments the gloomy fact that daddy, Joe, used to shower with her when she was a prepubescent girl?  We can put nothing past these people.  What I do know is this: people are angry, not just Republicans but Democrats, too.  Going down this path is un-American, one our nation can ill-afford yet the Biden regime seems to want to go down it.  I will say this: for every one of us they strike down, 10 more will spring up in their place which is why EVERYONE must rush out and begin buying firearms, ammo, and everything else they can because gun and ammo confiscation is coming soon.  Not going to be like Australia, New Zealand, or anywhere else for that matter, I can assure you.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht. 
  95. 2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus.  Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated.  We knew something was wrong with these vaccines.  It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House: BINGO!  I also fear that the millions of military-aged males deposited around the country will take to the streets just in time to keep people sequestered in their homes out of fear.  These people could very well become the Joestapo’s new Brown Shirts division, one with which to instill terror into the American people.  You heard it here first- we can put nothing past these people anymore.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

IF one lives long enough, musical moments from the past finally are released in the way in which, they should have been.  Thus, we have “The Smile Sessions” by the Beach Boys, released on Halloween, 2011.  Many believe “Smile”- had it been released back in 1967 to counter the Beatles’ epic “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” the Rolling Stones’ “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request,” the Small Faces’ “Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake,” the Kinks’ “Something Else” and “Face to Face,” as well as other epic psychedelic masterpieces, it would have been right there with them, most likely at the top.  The other Beach Boys- could not get behind Brian’s masterpiece, the one he created with lyricist Van Dyke Parks, and thus, it was chopped up, neutered, and made blasé which was a loss for the world.  Now, however, we have it the way in which it should have been released along with loads of added material which puts the listener smack dab in the midst of the recording process.  This is one for the ages, one we hope everyone will rush out, give a listen, and then add it to your ever-burgeoning collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music- you can thank us later.

[i] We began promoting the music of Jethro Tull, Blodwyn Pig, Mick Abrahams, Ian Anderson, Martin Barre, Wild Turkey, and Paris on Monday, May 24, 2021, at the AICPENDBLOG.COM.  The presentation concluded on Sunday, October 03, 2021.

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of INXS sometime within the next 15 years or so.  We hope you will be there when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of this legend, but you can expect we will at some point within the next 20 years.

[iv] Moral of the story for the Brits- remember: Black Lives Matter, you cannot be gunning them down.  At least the United States is not the only nation contending with civil unrest in the streets.

[v] Commercials to this day continue encouraging citizens to come forth and join in class-action lawsuits against Monsanto, which is fine but whatever happened to personal responsibility?  When using f**king poisons, use protective gear!

[xviii] The ersatz president had more to say of his good friend, Governor Cuomo: “He’s done a hell of a job” and it’s “so sad to see him go.”  One groper to another.  In other Cuomo-related news, politicians such as former Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey and Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ 2nd congressional district, are demanding that investigations into the crumbling governor and unnecessary nursing home deaths for which, he bears SOLE RESPONSIBILITY continue.

  53. 2020 Sunday A: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington state- here are the stats, Golden State first: 554,160 confirmed cases, 10,293 confirmed deaths, but as usual, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, in the Aloha State, here are the stats: 3,346 confirmed cases, thirty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,511 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 66,523 confirmed cases, 1,688 confirmed deaths, and like other mostly BLUE locales, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let us look at Alabama.  Here are their numbers: 100.173 confirmed cases, 1,755 confirmed deaths, but like many other states, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us hope there is light at the end of the tunnel…
  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.

  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.

  60. 2020 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- these 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 will not stop giving, statistics for today: 19,425,393 confirmed cases, UP 264,587, 722,066 confirmed deaths, UP 5,983, and 11,773,122 confirmed recoveries, UP 167,998.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 5,054,067 confirmed cases, UP 52,386 new cases, 163,575 confirmed deaths, UP 1,156, and 2,477,554 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,976. 
  61. 2020 Saturday A: 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: 545,787 confirmed cases, 10,189 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: 3,115 confirmed cases, thirty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,467 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 61,587 confirmed cases, 1,672 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee will not list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at the numbers of another state we have not looked at lately, Ohio, the “Buckeye State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 99,969 while the number of deaths is 3,668.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Mike DeWine, a RINO, is little more than a hardcore political hack.
  62. 2020 Saturday B: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day- Let us look at the second-highest nation infected with the Wuhan Virus, Brazil:  The South American nation has 3,012,412 cases of Xi Jinping’s gift to the world what with 100,477 deaths, and 2,068,394 recoveries.   India is the third highest nation infected with this dastardly, lab-engineered virus what with 2,152,020 confirmed cases, 43,453 confirmed deaths, and 1,479,804 confirmed recoveries.  Russia comes in fourth what with 882,347 confirmed cases, 14,854 confirmed deaths, and 690,207 confirmed recoveries.  Now, let us look at the Chi-Coms, the place where this needless disaster began: they come in 30th among nations with 84,590 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 79,123 confirmed recoveries (although our sources in Hong Kong and Macau tell us they are 10-times higher than reported which sounds about right for the main communist hellhole on the planet.  Shame on them).
  63. 2020 Saturday C: Sadly, without any help from the Democrats, President Trump takes it upon himself to improve the lot of the American people, people whose lives have been thrown into freefall thanks to the Chinese Virus Crisis, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, by signing an executive order that will do the following: (1) $400 in enhanced unemployment benefits throughout the remainder of the year; (2) A payroll ‘holiday’ tax that will cut payroll taxes for every American making under $100,000 per year; (3) A continued moratorium on evictions; and (4) deferring student loan repayments until next year.  The president is asking the states to cover 25-percent of the costs while the federal government will cover the other 75-percent.  Democrats threaten to take him to court over these actions.  WHY?  They want bailouts for Blue States- like California- that is so far in the RED it risks imploding in upon itself because CalPERS needs billions of dollars to keep it solvent while Sacramento gives money and benefits- including free health care to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Let California DIE.  We say this even though our blog site is based there.  It is time for change.
  64. 2020 Saturday D: The people of Beirut, Lebanon, continue protesting their government’s corruption in allowing their port to blow up on Tuesday thanks to more than 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in the port.  Some even call for the lynching of Hezbollah boss, Hassan Nasrallah, a POS terrorist if one ever existed.  In some cases, police use live ammunition on the protesters as violence gets out of control.  Meanwhile, Portland, Oregon, sees yet another night of mayhem in the streets, its 70th but who is counting, right) while Mayor Ted Wheeler scolds Antifa for misbehaving.  Folks do what the police in Beirut are doing, the moment you see some POS rioter raise his arm to throw an incendiary device, shoot them.  It works and has always worked in the past.  Has the United States lost its nerve?
  65. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 203,441,157 confirmed cases, +463,096, 4,307,387 confirmed deaths, +7,747 and 182,742,086 confirmed recoveries, +428,841.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,543,338 confirmed cases, UP 24,390 from yesterday’s reporting, 633,116 confirmed deaths, UP 129,[ix] and 29,859,062 confirmed recoveries, UP 7,259.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[x]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 314,674 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed 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 89,404 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  67. 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: 4,046,728 confirmed cases, 64,786 confirmed deaths, and 2,118,215 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,770,817 confirmed cases, 39,695 confirmed deaths, and 2,302,588 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 46,503 confirmed cases, 542 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 490,196 confirmed cases, 6,210 confirmed deaths, and 231,605 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kentucky: they have 495,132 confirmed cases, 7,372 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  68. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 900,482 confirmed cases, 6,542 confirmed deaths, and 863,583 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Saint Lucia, 173rd country on the list: 5,837 cases of the virus, 90 confirmed deaths and 5,452 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  70. 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 $4.390 per gallon, $3.022 in Florida, $4.083 in Hawaii, and $3.873 in Washington state.[xvii]    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.[xviii]  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.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after 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.
  71. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– When one is the ‘border czar,’ there is never a day off.  Today marks Day No. 138 for “Kooky Kamala” Harris to oversee the nightmare along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 44 since her sole visit to the slowest portion of the border, the El Paso Sector.  Wow.  Here are the figures for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News: first, here is the cost for just this day: $576,230,464.  Imagine all the good that money could do for the American people.  Next, here is the cost for this year of caring for the millions of illegal aliens who have swept into the United States: $240,576,282,624.  Moving on, here are the numbers for border invaders for 2021: 2,465,714.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of border-jumping illegal aliens lurking within our country: 36,465,712. (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).  In other shocking border news, we learn that the Border Patrol is releasing 1,000 illegal aliens per day into the city of McAllen, Texas.  This is absolutely dreadful.  Even worse, we learned that since the beginning of the year, CBP has released 7,000 COVID-19-infected illegal aliens into the city with 1,500 dumped there just this past week- and the Biden regime wants us to wear flipping masks and get vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. 
  72. : Political News I– The ‘infrastructure bill’ in the U.S. Senate has stalled over no clear mechanism with which to fund the $1.3 trillion (or $1.7 trillion depending upon where one sees it) monstrosity.  Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that ‘Washington, D.C. is using COVID-19 to concentrate power in a very few hands and to undermine federalism by diminishing state’s rights.’  Next, the POS Mark Zuckerberg dumped $12 million on a ‘nonprofit Democratic Party consulting firm.’   Finally, Carlos Del Toro survived confirmation as the next secretary of the U.S. Navy.
  73. 2021 Sunday H: California State News– Since all GOP candidates are doing well in the Golden State, the California GOP is declining to endorse any of the candidates seeking to replace highly unpopular Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom who is clinging to power by a thread.  One of the Republicans- former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer lit up sniveling Governor Newsom for crying that the recall is some sort of ‘GOP attempt at grabbing his seat.’  Mayor Faulconer said, “NO- it’s your performance” which has been extremely horrid.
  74. 2022 Monday: As everyone knows, I once was a Democrat until I switched parties and became a Republican.  I would like to say something to the RINOs corrupting the party, losers such as “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney and her horrible father, Dick, among others.  What is wrong with you people?  Dick should have been handed over to the Hague for war crimes because that man set the entire Iraq fiasco in motion, one that killed and maimed Americans that did not have to suffer those outcomes.  Just because Donald Trump put the Bush Family in its place is not reason enough to become anti-Trump which means, “ANTI-AMERICAN.”  You are doing it all over, instigating war with Russia, war with China, war with Iran.  At some point it must stop and the only way to achieve that outcome is to send every single one of you soul-sucking war vampires out of office and into disgrace.  Going to be a great week, let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0916 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sycamore Road.”  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:

Alan Jardine released his first- and only at the time of this presentation- solo album, “A Postcard from California” on June 19, 2010.  Jardine is one of the unsung Beach Boys greats and one would have thought that the remaining Beach Boys such as Mike Love and Bruce Johnston would have sought to continue the association but no, after the death of Carl Love, Love forced him out of the band which was truly peculiar.  Perhaps it’s because Love only wanted to play the original tunes in the original ways in which, they were recorded instead of continuing the evolution of the songs in the way Carl demanded.  Jardine, however, did not throw in the towel but carried on with his own band performing the tunes as he saw them and adding new ones (well, some unreleased ones) on this, his first solo album.  Jardine performs many of the instruments as well as the vocals but also had numerous guests with which to create an amazing album.  Almost everyone- including some Beach Boys- are here which makes for a glorious audio experience.  Even Glenn Campbell is here WHO was a Beach Boy for a brief period when Brian Wilson could no longer continue on the road.  Check it out- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

219. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, AUGUST 07, 2022

IF you want to end monkeypox in the United States, close the bathhouses, the gay bars, park restrooms, and encourage the homo men to return to practicing safe sex, if not chastity. Without the so-called ‘gay gene’ being discovered- and believe you me, they are searching high and low for it- homosexuality is 99.99999-percent choice, not a matter of birth. Will people be mad at us? Sure, but we don’t give a flying hoot because it is important to always speak the truth.

  55. 2018 Tuesday: The Mendocino Fire overtakes the 2017 Thomas Fire as California’s worst wildfire ever as it is credited with scorching more than 290,600 acres. The reason for these out-of-control wildfires in the Golden State is poor forest management by state authorities. They would rather kiss the rear-ends of environmentalist groups than to do what is right by the people of the state- the U.S. citizens, which is. Meanwhile, the ‘democratic’ People’s Republic of China bans the Disney movie, “Christopher Robin” (from Winnie the Pooh fame) because the character had the audacity to mock the communist thug running the country, Xi Jinping.
  56. 2019 Wednesday: ICE goes to town in Mississippi as agents raid chicken-processing plants and round up seven hundred or more illegal aliens. About time.

  57. 2020 Friday: Prior to President Donald J. Trump’s visit to Ohio the previous day, Republican Governor Mike DeWine claimed to have had a positive test for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. Today, his office declared it to be a false alert, that he did NOT have the Wuhan Virus. Well, we know that Governor DeWine is a RINO and that he does not want to appear with President Trump so there you go. What a shame. Meanwhile, employment statistics for the month of July show a net gain of 1.763 million new jobs filled, that unemployment in the country had dropped to 10.2 percent and that of all the jobs gained, one-third of them were in the leisure and hospitality industry. Unemployment for all categories is down but especially for black and Hispanic Americans. No matter what the Democrats do, they cannot cripple the economy. Elsewhere, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo says that schools in the Empire State will reopen in the fall for all students. Finally, “Pro-China Joe” Biden continues trying to clarify his statements from earlier in the week that he is ‘not a racist’ and that he ‘loves black folks.’  Uh, okay, Joe, okay. We KNOW you are a racist and that since your earliest days in the U.S. Senate, you have backed every segregationist move that came your way. Enough is enough, already!
  58. 2020 Friday A: Various teachers’ unions around the country continue sniveling and whining about ‘how dangerous it is for them to return to the classrooms in the fall due to Wuhan Virus Crisis concerns,’ to which, we say, “IF you can’t do it, then step the hell aside and allow others to do the job” as well as urge President Trump to find ways by which to terminate all teachers who will not return to the classrooms.  We must find ways by which, we can crush public sector employees’ unions because this is bulls**t. Besides, teachers’ unions want to defund cops, make the Green New Deal real, and all manner of left-wing socialist crap. However, one way by which, we can make sure the kids and teachers can socially distant is to DEPORT ALL ILLEGAL ALIENS AND THEIR KIDS and you will find classrooms 50-percent vacant. DO THIS NOW! Never let a good crisis like the Chinese Virus go to waste, DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS BUT ESPECIALLY THEIR KIDS! Once done, the test scores of American children will skyrocket as they will not have to restrict their pace to that of the ignorant illegals.  Meanwhile, news hits that the Democratic Party does NOT want the “Baby Evita,” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka AOC, to speak at their upcoming convention. Who can blame them? The girl is bat crap stupid! Elsewhere, the Democrats in Congress continue demanding a $3 trillion COVID-19 relief bill atop the previous trillion dollars spent on this Chi-Com lab-engineered pandemic. If anyone should be $3 trillion, it should be the Democratic Party’s masters in Beijing!
  59. 2020 Friday B: The president of Lebanon- Michel Aoun- announces that one of two things sparked the ginormous explosion that toppled much of the port section of Beirut on Tuesday: human error or human intent. He asked the president of France for help in determining if a missile or an aircraft in the vicinity might somehow have caused the godawful explosion that has killed close to two hundred people, injured 4,000 or more, as well as caused the disappearances of numerous others. The AICPENDBLOG.COM believes it was an Iranian weapons cache that a moron dropped a cigarette butt into, or the Israeli Mossad took action to stop a Hezbollah (we put nothing past POS murderer Hassan Nasrallah) or Hamas’s plot against them.
  60. 2020 Friday C: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Virus Statistics for the globe: 19,160,806 confirmed cases, UP by 407,889 cases, 716,083 confirmed deaths, UP by 9,741 deaths, and 11,605,114 confirmed recoveries, UP by 303,093 recoveries.

  61. 2020 Friday D: COVID-19 Statistics next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 538,416 confirmed cases, UP 8,436 cases, 10,011 confirmed deaths, UP by 142, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.

Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 60,917 confirmed cases, UP by 833, 1,653 confirmed deaths, UP by twenty-nine, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats.

  63. 2020 Friday F: Joe Biden’s overall national poll has dropped to a lead of 6.8 percent over President Donald J. Trump. Meanwhile, President Donald Trump announces he will extend unemployment benefits to the end of the year. He says he will forgo school loan repayments for the time being and that evictions will be put on hold until sometime in the fall. He also announces aid for Lebanon in the aftermath of what appears more likely to have been a terrorist attack in that beautiful nation. President Trump also says- yet again- that the Dept. of Homeland Security is ready, willing, and able to go into Portland, Oregon, and end the seventy-six straight days of rioting that has been trashing that once beautiful city. It is clear that Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler is in league with the Marxist scum. We say, “Send in former Blackwater Special Ops and WHACK ‘em!”
  64. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 202,978,061 confirmed cases, +574,898, 4,299,640 confirmed deaths, +9,199 and 182,313,241 confirmed recoveries, +409,026.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,518,948 confirmed cases, UP 71,825 from yesterday’s reporting, 632,987 confirmed deaths, UP 346, [v] and 29,851,803 confirmed recoveries, UP 17,231.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]

  70. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 137 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to oversee the fiasco along the southern border with Mexico and Day No. 43 since her one and only visit to the catastrophe going on down there.  As the border continues imploding, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says the White House’s border policies only lead to increased violence and an avalanche of drugs from communist China (which in our view is an act of war against the American people).  Moving on, here are the figures for the illegal alien invasion as compiled by One America News.  Ready?  Here we go: (1) Cost this Day of caring for the illegal aliens: $554,515,584.  Next, (2) Cost this Year of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $ 239,458,680,832.  Next, (3) here is the number of illegal aliens who have swarmed across the border this year: 2,454,259.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens living within the United States: 36,454,260.  (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- since the inception of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day back in July 2009, we predicted then that the numbers were approximately 35-50 million whereas now, we contend they are closer to 75-100 million which is not good.  The seeds of our own destruction already exist among us.
  71. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As Joe Biden continues stumbling around like a deranged lunatic suffering from the DTs, Texas Judge Richard Cortez is calling out the head of the regime for ignoring his invitation to visit the southern border and to witness the disaster Dictator Biden has caused.  Meanwhile, we learn (and we do not believe this for a minute) but a new report says that the Biden regime is flying illegal alien families down into Mexico.  We do not believe this for a moment.
  72. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is raising concerns over the aggressive behavior of the Chi-Coms and warns that the Chinese Communist Party- the CCP- is rapidly building a nuclear arsenal.  Elsewhere, Lebanese authorities arrest four Hezbollah thugs after they launched sixteen rockets into northern Israel.  The Iron Dome shot down ten of the missiles while the other six exploded harmlessly.  Neither side reported any casualties.
  73. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The White House is going to require ALL visitors to have either a Chi-Vi vaccine passport or proof of a negative China Virus test.  Meanwhile, radio talk show host and pundit Dr. Michael Savage has raised the ques
