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…

[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.  

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0919 an 8” x 10” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Homestead.”  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:

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.

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. Meanwhile, law enforcement discovers the bodies of two sociopath teenagers who murdered three people on remote roads in British Columbia, dead of apparent suicides. The entire eastern part of Canada had been in an uproar and law enforcement authorities were scouring large areas searching for the two scumbags.
  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.

  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!”

[xii]       
  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 $4.390 per gallon, $3.024 in Florida, $4.091 in Hawaii, and $3.872 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Missouri: $2.870.  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- Grenada: $5.041 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,614,904,269,572 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS. [xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Japan, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is communist China with $1,072 trillion 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– 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 question as to whether the world can force the Chi-Coms to pay reparations to the world for letting loose the Chi-Vi on an unsuspecting globe.  Next, reports are suggesting that the U.S. is experiencing 100,000 new cases of the Wuhan Virus every day which simply is not true no matter how much Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci or the Biden regime wants it to be.
  74. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-OH 7th CD, is asking the House Republican leadership to begin impeachment hearings on slobbering Joe Biden.  Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is blasting the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill’ and warns that it is going to lead to a horrible uptick in inflation for the American people.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says that the GOP ‘should use the debt ceiling to force a better infrastructure bill.’  Amen.  Elsewhere, Rep. Conor Lamb, DS-PA 17th CD, is going to launch a U.S. Senate bid to capture the seat of outgoing Senator Pat Toomey, Republican.
  75. 2021 Saturday K: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is blasting Wisconsin for not cleaning up its voter rolls sooner.  Next, politicians are joining pediatricians in slamming the American Medical Association’s absolutely STUPID idea of NOT including gender markers on birth certificates.  Enough with WOKE!  In other political news, Rep. Don Bacon, R-NE 2nd CD is blasting decrepit Joe Biden over not moving quickly enough to get Afghan allies out of Afghanistan before the Taliban overrun the entire country.
  76. 2021 Saturday L: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– The sheriff of Albany County, New York, says that ‘if the accusations against Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov are true, he could arrest the crumbling governor for sexual harassment and assault.  Rep. Andrew Garbarino, R-NY 2nd CD predicts that ‘Cuomo will resign before Albany impeaches the POS.’  Meanwhile, noted legal scholar and professor Dr. Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax the ‘bigoted attacks’ on Governor “Killer” Cuomo are ‘all political.’  In other Cuomo news, a new report says that an aide to Governor Cuomo signed off on the Empire State’s chief executive having completed sexual harassment training.
  77. 2021 Saturday M: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3584 what with a $14 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 02, 09, 12, 20, 39, and Mega 05.  Out of 103,399 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE NUMBERS plus the Mega for a prize of $14,000,000.  The lucky winner bought the winning ticket at Valero in Highland, CA 92346.  Then, there were three people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $11,607 apiece.  Those tickets were sold at (1) 7-Eleven in Roseville, CA 95678; (2) Chevron in Bakersfield, CA 93313; and ARCO AM/PM in Calexico, CA 92231.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #870 with a jackpot of $226 million up for grabs: 07, 24, 36, 54, 60, and Power 23.  Out of 89,466 winning tickets, the highest winners were sixty-nine people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $367 apiece.
  78. 2022 Sunday: Folks, we are recording the latest Chi-Vi and monkeypox cases for presentation in 2023 but let us say this about the monkeypox: the fact that it is mostly an STD among gay men lessens our concern for the ‘victims.’  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.  A century from now- if our country still survives- generations then will look back on now as being a time of rampant lunacy, one that afflicted many otherwise sane people.  Look at transgenderism: that’s bullshit.  The fact that young people are being physically disfigured for life tells us at some point those mentally ill people are going to come back to their enablers and begin murdering them for having destroyed their lives via giving in to the ‘fad of the day.’  Let us return to common sense instead of nursing at the nasty teats of liberalism and reclaim our nation.  Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.

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

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

Trump.  According to Democrats, Trump is ‘toast’ and might as well resign and go home NOW.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka the Fly, Democratic-Socialist, blubbered about comments made by Florida GOP Rep.

[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.245.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Costa Rica: $4.483 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,556,382,310,872 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after France, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Norway with $88 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 122 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border separating the United States from barbarism and her 28th day since she ‘visited the border’ on her one and only photo op trip.  Joe Biden- strip this gibbering jackal, this shrieking night bird, this howling jackanapes, this screeching forest orangutan, Willie Brown’s mattress, and send her home to spend more time with her family.  She is a failure in everything she does.  Meanwhile, construction restarted on the border wall in Texas as Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, got the project going again using taxpayer dollars and donations to do what must be done: defending the United States from the massive numbers of illegals trying to storm our country.
  79. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers as compiled by One America News for the absolute catastrophe occurring along our southern border.  First, here is the cost for caring for the millions of illegal vermin crossing the border: $525,583,584 just this day.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the castoff Third World dregs this year: $222.992,384,576.  Next, here is the number estimated to have crossed the southern border this year: 2,285,483.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the taxpayers’-tired teats: 36,285,484. [xviii]  As everyone should know, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has been around since early 2009 and back then, we estimated the numbers of illegals within the United States then as between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the honest-to-God numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  This is insane and no country can withstand a tidal wave of illegal aliens as we now are.  Round ‘em up along with whatever children the scum have fathered or given birth to here, put them in tent prison camps in the Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas deserts, and when air transport, derelict freighters, buses, cattle cars, and any other type of transportation arises, get them the hell out of here.  NOW.
  80. 2021 Friday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– A Gallup poll says that 31-percent of ALL Americans want immigration decreased.  We think that immigration must be curtailed as it was early in the previous century as we do not need a tidal wave of ignorant, permanent lower-class dependents sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers.  Build the f**king wall and deport them all.   Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Johnson, R-LA 4th CD, is demanding answers for WHY a large number of Haitians allowed to enter the U.S. via the southern border were dumped all over the state with no advance warning to local authorities.
  81. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Chi-Com bigwig, a man who fashions himself as the global dictator, Xi Jinping and his corrupt, evil regime have slapped sanctions on former U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and five others after the Biden regime issued an advisory warning U.S. business of the risks of doing business in Hong Kong.  Meanwhile, reports suggest that the United States is doing what it should have done prior to the withdrawal from Afghanistan and that is launching air-and-drone strikes against weapons captured by the Taliban that we left behind as well as on Taliban targets, too.  Good.  Use neutron bombs, irradiate these barbarous scumbags.
  82. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden continues taking heat for his irresponsible comments on Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  The senile old fool says that if you get vaccinated you ‘won’t get sick, you won’t be hospitalized, and most of all, you won’t die.’  Joe, what the hell have you been smoking you old fool?  Add to Joe’s woes over his ludicrous comments regarding inflation and we see an ‘administration’ on the cusp of going down the crapper faster than Jimmy Carter’s.   The country needs deliverance from this insanity.  Can’t Barack Hussein Obama do a better job as the “Cho-Mo Joe whisperer’ than what he’s presently doing?
  83. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– The regime White House says it has the ‘highest ethical standards of ANY White House in U.S. history’ even as a growing cacophony of the American people question drug-addled Hunter Biden’s ‘private art sales.’  Who is buying his ‘13th Floor Elevators album covers-style artworks’ and how much are they paying for this psychedelic crap?  The man is NOT an artist, he is little more than a dope head with predilections for young children like his father, regime leader Joe Biden.  In other Biden regime news, when asked by a reporter as to numbers inside the White House afflicted by the ‘VID, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki responded with: “Why do you need to know the numbers?”  Speaking of “Circle Back” Psaki, she also guaranteed White House reporters that ethics safeguards are now in place to make sure Hunter Biden is not selling his artworks to America’s enemies to open a back channel to the voice in his feeble father’s ear.
  84. 2021 Friday L: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– After the Major League Baseball 2021 Season concludes, the fabled Cleveland Indians have announced that in order to appease the WOKIES going berserk on social media, they are going to change their name to- get this- the Cleveland Guardians which sounds much like a DEFENSIVE name, not an OFFENSIVE one.  If it makes you feel better, then go for it but we hope the Atlanta Braves and the Kansas City Chiefs keep their names.  President Donald J. Trump had to add his two cents to the conservation and called the name change a ‘big disgrace.’  Amen.    
  85. : Whacked-Out News of the Day– Meanwhile, Tennessee’s state house removed the bust of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and sent it God knows where.  The bust was installed back in 1979.  The man was the creator of the Ku Klux Klan; however, destroying history is foolish because in so doing, the lessons the next generation can learn disappear, possibly to be repeated again at some point in the future.   Curiously, the busts of two famous U.S. Admirals- David Farragut and Albert Gleaves- so as NOT to hurt the feelings of the Forrest bust.  There is NO other explanation as to WHY one would remove two U.S. heroes.
  86. 2021 Friday N: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Jason Sengheiser blasted the St. Louis prosecutors office over the dismissals of murder charges against three separate defendants.   The judge accused the office of Kim Gardner of shirking its duty of protecting the community from violent thugs.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   In other despicable news, President Donald J. Trump’s former inaugural chairman Tom Barrack walked out of jail today on a $250 million bond.  A $250 million bond.  What is this, a banana republic?  Flamin’ crap, folks, the country is falling into the abyss.
  87. 2021 Friday O: U.S. House of Representatives News I– The House Freedom Caucus is pushing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD to employ a House rule that would allow the lower chamber to boot Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the rapidly deteriorating fascist dictator out of the speakership and onto her butt.  In a letter to the senior GOP leader in the House, they wrote: “We, the House Freedom Caucus, respectfully request that you pursue the authorization of the House Republican Conference, pursuant to Conference rules, to file and bring up a privileged motion by July 31, 2021, to vacate the chair and end Nancy Pelosi’s authoritarian reign as Speaker of the House.  Rule IX, Clause 3 of the Rules of the House of Representatives for the One Hundred Seventeenth Congress requires that ‘A resolution causing a vacancy in the Office of Speaker shall not be privileged except if offered by direction of a party caucus or conference.”  The fact that Speaker Mumbles booted two of Leader McCarthy’s picks from her sham January 06, 2021, Select Committee caused Leader McCarthy to say that in the ‘history of the House, this has never happened before.’  He pulled his remaining picks and the lemon-sucking speaker said ‘good’ and is going to run her ersatz committee with skunks such as Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th CD, as ‘representatives of the GOP.’  Leader McCarthy, we hope you will act on the Freedom Caucus’ letter.
  88. 2021 Friday P: Federal and State Court News– Finally!  A federal appellate court finds the CDC moratorium on evictions is ‘unconstitutional’ which is good news for landlords as they have bills to pay, too.
  89. 2021 Friday Q: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1679 what with a $140 million jackpot on the line: 13, 17, 19, 40, 69 and Mega 17.  Out of 63,207 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $8,638 apiece.
  90. 2022 Saturday: This past Tuesday, the dingleberry Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- AOC- and her good buds, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar were arrested in front of the United States Supreme Court for blocking traffic.  Others of their ilk underwent ‘arrest,’ too, what with magic handcuffs behind their backs.  What a bullshit show.  Can we please remove these dimwitted skanks from office in November?  Besides, the ‘big booty Latina’s’ rear-end is the product of a Brazilian butt lift, it ain’t real just like her and her ’fiancé’ is little more than a suck-up punk.   One has to love Alex Stein, the comedian, the man is hilarious.

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

  25. 1944 Saturday: The Soviet military authorities set up the Polish National Liberation Committee. In essence, they are telling the Free Polish government broadcasting orders to the Polish people from London, ‘you aren’t in charge here.’  Soviet forces capture the strategic city of Chelmno and redouble their efforts at encircling Lublin, Poland.  Meanwhile, in London, Rick Davies, future keyboardist, and vocalist with the rock group, Supertramp[i], is born in Swindon, England.
  26. 1945 Sunday: As Allied bombers continue blasting Japan, the Japanese government still is not ready to throw in the towel.  Tokyo still thinks it can negotiate a peace and tells the Allies; we are ‘open to peace feelers but not to outright surrender.’  The Imperial Japanese are determined to defend their home islands to the bitter end no matter the cost.
  27. 1945 Sunday A: The 52nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau Jr. left office on this date.  A Democrat, Secretary Morgenthau served under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt from January 01, 1934, until today.

  35. 1965 Thursday: BBC-TV in England debuted “Till Death Us Do Part” on this date.

  47. 1999 Thursday: In Rome, N.Y., the 30th anniversary music festival celebrating the original Woodstock Music and Arts Festival of 1969 begins.  None of the bands there could ever approximate the original performers and add to that the fact the concert temperatures were over 100 degrees plus, people became violent and battled with one another bringing the mess to an end on the 25th.  Some said the fiasco was ‘the day the music died,’ a comment attributed to San Francisco Examiner journalist Jane Ganahi.  Yes, we think it did die there what with a mishmash of various groups.   The fact that people fought with each other, there were sexual assaults, rapes, arson, and looting says that this event was NOT about ‘peace and love.’  Nope.  Can’t rekindle the magic.

  50. 2004 Thursday: The September 11 commission’s final report hit the news on this date.  The 575-page report concluded that hijackers exploited “deep institutional failings within our government.”  The commission released it to the White House a day before.  This report has led many 9-11 Truthers to blame George W. Bush for allowing the jihadist scum to attack the United States so the President could launch a war with Iraq.  This is a bunch of felonious bull crap as EVERYONE—we repeat—EVERYONE believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

  55. 2012 Sunday:  India elects Pranab Mukherjee as its new President.
  56. 2013 Monday: Scientific studies reveal that dolphins have unique names for one another in much the same way as do human beings.  Elsewhere, frenzied crowds of Roman Catholics in Rio de Janeiro mobbed the car carrying Pope Francis as he returned to his home continent for the first time as pontiff, embarking on a seven-day visit.  Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, gave birth to a son, Prince George, who became third in line to the British throne after Prince Charles and Prince William.

  60. 2017 Saturday: The United States Navy and President Donald J. Trump christened the newest aircraft carrier to the fleet, the USS Gerald R. Ford, on this date.    Meanwhile, in San Antonio, Texas, one of the worst incidents of tragedy in human trafficking occurs as 10 illegal aliens die in the back of an overheated semi-truck trailer.   
  61. 2018 Sunday: In response to a hateful speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet in which, he warns the s-hole nation of “CONSEQUENCES.”  The Iranians would be wise to listen to the 45th president as he is not- we repeat NOT- the 44th president who was Pro-Iranian to the bone.   Meanwhile, in anti-gun Toronto, Canada, a shooter kills 2 and wounds 13 before being shot dead by law enforcement.
  62. 2019 Monday: The latest Marvel Comics superhero film, “Avengers: Endgame,” surpasses “Avatar” as the world’s highest-grossing film pulling in $2.9 billion.  People love the comic book movies it says a lot about the public paying big bucks to watch this schlock.   Meanwhile, Pakistani President Imran Khan meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House on a state visit.   Elsewhere, in northwestern Syria at Maarat al-Numan, Russian warplanes in support of Syrian government forces kill at least 31 civilians.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump says that the ‘U.S. could win the war in Afghanistan in one week.’  “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.  If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.”  (Mr. President, this is why God gave the United States the neutron bomb- use them!).
  63. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. State Department orders the closure- by this Friday- of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China’s consulate in Houston, Texas.  The Chinese within the facility immediately start a bonfire with which to eliminate all sensitive documents but everyone knows the Houston consulate (and most of the others) are hotbeds for hostile spying on everything in the area: U.S. air force and other military bases, the U.S. space program, and bio research, especially into the Chinese-manufactured Bat Flu pandemic sweeping the planet.  Meanwhile reports inform the world that everyday PRC warplanes are buzzing Taiwan, a free nation the communists are determined to reclaim.  STAND STRONG TAIWAN!  We advocate for a return of the Two-China policy by which, Taiwan becomes a free and independent nation as they were before the United Nations threw them under the bus in favor of the PRC- Chi-Com money bought them Taiwan’s seat in the U.N. and on the U.N. Security Council.      
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: President Donald J. Trump- with Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, and numerous others- announces to the nation Operation Legend, a partnership between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to reclaim the streets from violent left-wing (and we believe communist China-funded) mobs that are murdering innocent civilians and harming countless others in numerous cities around the country.   These are standard, anti-crime-fighting activities the federal government has been carrying out for decades and all left-wing mayors and governors have been put on notice.
  65. 2020 Wednesday B: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,008,046 confirmed cases, UP by 233,159 cases, 617,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,303 deaths, and 8,511,330 confirmed recoveries, UP by 171,288 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,019,492 confirmed cases, UP by 123,689 new cases, 145,053 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,021 new deaths, and 1,185,757 confirmed recoveries, UP by 55,552 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt MF-ers).   
  66. 2020 Wednesday 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: 413,576 confirmed cases, 7,883 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,418 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,084 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 48,575 confirmed cases, 1,465 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Florida: 379,619 confirmed number of cases, 5,459 confirmed number of deaths, and like Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Ron DeSantis?  Acting like a Blue State governor?

  69. 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 307,730 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 96,348 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  70. 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: 3,890,609 confirmed cases, 64,184 confirmed deaths, and 2,087,173 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,497,828 confirmed cases, 38,566 confirmed deaths, and 2,273,461 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 39,892 confirmed cases, 527 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 467,324 confirmed cases, 6,116 confirmed deaths, and 229,145 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Ohio: they have 1,120,120 confirmed cases, 20,449 confirmed deaths, and 1,089,482 confirmed recoveries. [x]    
  71. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 856,986 confirmed cases, 6,457 confirmed deaths, and 840,712 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Hong Kong, 156th FREE STATE on the list: 11,972 cases of the virus, 212 confirmed deaths and 11,690 confirmed recoveries. [xi]     
  72. 2021 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,823.35, UP 25.35 points (+0.073%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,684.60, UP 52.64 points (+0.36%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,367.48, UP 8.79 points (+0.20%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.70 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.20 per troy oz., -1.30 (-0.07%) while the price of SILVER is $25.41 per troy ounce, +0.03 (+0.11%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,093.00 per troy oz, +2.40 (+0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $4.36 per pound, +0.02 (+0.48%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,723.12 per troy oz, +5.23 (+0.19%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $18,700.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).

[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000031.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.47 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.09.     In Croatia Kuna, one greenback equals 6.39 and in Cuban Peso, a buck equals 24.00 and in Czech Koruna, one dollar equals 21.77 of theirs. [xv]        
  73. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.320 per gallon, $2.977 in Florida, $4.091 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Connecticut: $3.154.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Communist China: $4.477 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,553,133,360,269 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  74. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 121 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the CALAMITY occurring on the U.S.-Mexico border and to have done NOTHING about the crisis.  It’s also her 27th day since she has been to the border on her one and only trip with no mention as to when she might return to conduct a serious visit.  We await word of that momentous day if it should come because we would love to accompany “Willie Brown’s mattress.” 
  75. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the latest figures on the southern border mess as they always do.  First, here is the cost this day of carrying for multitudes of illegal aliens in U.S. custody: $539,396,352.  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $221,909,319,680.  Moving on, here is the estimated number for illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 2,274,392.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals in the U.S. as we speak: 36,274,392.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the inception of this blog back in 2009 that the numbers back then were around 35-50 million illegals whereas now, we believe a much more honest number is between 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Folks, we need to round them up, imprison them, and then deport them in a nonstop reverse caravan of outgoing flights, on freighters, on freight trains, via buses, and even on foot.  The country cannot handle these people, nor do we want them running amok in our country.  DEFEND THE COUNTRY NOW. [xix]
  76. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said that the U.S., South Korea, and Japan will counter any malevolent activity the North Koreans might commit.  While this is awesome, there is no pushback against the Chi-Coms.  The Chi-Coms reject a plan by the World Health Organization to determine the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Democrats remain under fire from human rights groups because they won’t call out their communist overlords for human rights violations.
  77. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The ‘Mark of the Beast’ attitude continues what with a New Jersey hospital firing SIX employees who said ‘NO’ to getting one of the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Whatever happened to ‘my body, my choice?’  Obviously, it doesn’t count here.  Meanwhile, the White House is reviewing whether it’s going to impose mask mandates on the American people whether they want them or not.   Elsewhere, One America News reported today that the VAERS website says that COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S. jumped from 11.1 thousand to 12.3 thousand deaths since the start of the year.  This number is higher than the combined deaths for all other vaccines in the country since the federal government began counting such incidents.  And they wonder WHY millions of Americans are reluctant to get vaccinated.  Finally, the National Football League says that if outbreaks of COVID-19 hits unvaccinated players and staff on a team, that team will forfeit games.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Oklahoma state lawmaker Sean Roberts urges an election audit within his state and the fake news media goes berserk and begins attacking him from all sides.  Meanwhile, security analyst Seth Keshel says that President Donald J. Trump actually won Texas by 55-percent rather than the 43-percent certified by the state.  Hence why there are calls for an Arizona-style election audit in the Lone Star State.
  79. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden signed a bill with which to boost the Crime Victims Fund today.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s town hall in Ohio, Joe continues being a laughingstock as there was less than less than 100 people in the auditorium with at least half of them being MSNBC employees.  The applause sounded canned as it has in other Joe Biden ‘appearances’ so it’s clear that most Americans see the drooling old dimwit as the usurper that he is.  How embarrassing.  Joe also is causing other consternation among his handlers as well as for the voice in his earpiece as now he is defending the Senate filibuster when a couple of weeks ago, he was calling it a ‘relic of Jim Crow.’  Come on, Joe, shake the damned cobwebs off, dude.  Come on, man!
  80. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland is going to Chicago to help with efforts to stop out-of-control gun violence in the Windy City.  We wish him luck.  In other regime news, the CIA says that ‘100 agents and their families have become victims of the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome,’ what appears to be microwave or sonic attacks directed at buildings and their occupants or at individuals singled out for such attacks.  To our knowledge, no one has figured out what- exactly- is going on or how it’s being done.  We hope the government gets this under control and responds in kind- 100 times over.
  81. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, always sucking on that lemon, says she is going to forge ahead with her ‘January 06, 2021 Select Committee’ with just her best bud, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and maybe Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, as the ONLY ‘Republicans’ on the panel seeing as how House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, pulled the rest of his appointees following lemon-sucking Nancy booting two of his picks the day before.   Leader McCarthy called Pelosi’s ‘committee’ a ‘sham committee’ and says that the Republicans will create their own January 06, 2021 ‘select’ House committee and will seek the TRUTH.  “Mumbles” Pelosi says she doesn’t give a flying you-know-what.
  82. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Regarding “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘select committee,’ Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, says that the decrepit old House speaker is content to go it alone without any Republicans.  She claims it’s ‘deadly serious, that it’s about the Constitution, that it’s about finding the truth for the American people when everyone understands that this is the witch hunt of witch hunts and that past generations of patriotic American lawmakers from all parties are rolling around in their graves with this foul dingbat destroying the fabled U.S. House of Representatives.  Shame, Nancy, shame.
  83. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Former Detroit Police James Craig made it official late yesterday: he is running to boot the incompetent political hack Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of Michigan out into the street.  Where can we send you money, Chief Craig?   Elsewhere, Rep. Beth Van Duyne, R-TX 24th congressional district, says that the ‘Democrat challenging her can’t even show up to do her own job.’  Speaking of the fugitive Texas Democrats hiding in the nation’s capital as the slave chasers’ breath down their trail, incredibly unphotogenic loser Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and his fund-raising group have sent $600,000 to his colleagues so as to keep them living in the style to which, they have become accustomed.  Good for you, Beto, good for you.  Loser.   Finally, some Texas counties are refusing to comply with Governor Gregg Abbott’s order to detain illegal aliens that fall into law enforcement’s hands.
  84. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– A new Gallup- poll says that race relations in the United States are at their lowest ebb since 2001.  Go figure.  The Democratic Party uses race to drive wages between all Americans.  Next, the Pentagon is restoring five advisory boards after purging them of Trump loyalists.  What is this?  The frigging Soviet Union?  Son-of-a-bitch!  Moving on, Pro-Death Democrats are trying to engineer an end to the Hyde Amendment.  However, Republicans are pushing back as WHY should American taxpayer dollars be used to fund abortions, not just here in our godforsaken country but across the entire flipping planet?   Speaking of Pro-Death movement, Mississippi is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to toss out the landmark abortion ruling, Roe v. Wade.
  85. 2021 Thursday Q: Economic News– Things are not looking good for the Biden regime as the weekly jobs report does not look all that good.  Last week, a whopping 419,000 people filed for first-time jobless benefits as the U.S. economy continues to struggle. 
  86. 2021 Thursday R: Moron News I– Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser quickly removed a CUBA LIBRE mural all the while protecting a Black Lives Matter communist mural in her city.  Mayor “Bow-Wow” Bowser is our MORON OF THE DAY.  Thank you for showing us exactly who you are: a socialist hack.   In other Moron News, Bruce Springsteen and bestie Barack Hussein Obama are releasing a coauthored book in October.  Wow.  How many is it for Barack now?  Seven, eight, nine books about his favorite topic, himself?
  87. 2021 Thursday S: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– The ‘Great White Hope’ (to run against President Donald J. Trump in 2020- according to the Democrats) Michael Avenatti pled ‘NOT GUILTY’ to charges of wire fraud in California.   Elsewhere, the city of Minneapolis is weighing whether or not to get rid of its police department and go in a different direction such as having healthcare workers answer urgent calls from citizens suffering crime.  If the city council should approve this stupidity, it will go on the ballot in November and the leftists trashing the city will vote yay or nay.  This is crazy and none of us will ever visit Minneapolis-St. Paul ever again.
  88. 2021 Thursday T: Big Tech News– The GOP is fighting to push BIG TECH to subsidize broadband across the entire country.  Meanwhile, in a lawsuit filed against Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, President Donald J. Trump said Section 230 is unconstitutional in that it allows these scumbags to run amok censoring whomever they like as though they have greater power than do constitutional governments.  We are moving to Gettr and to other much fairer social media sites which leads us to the next tidbit of news: Twitter is doing better than expected with ad revenues; however, more and more Americans are leaving them to hopefully wither and die on the vine.
  89. 2021 Thursday U: California State News– Pacific Gas & Electric announced it’s going to bury 10,000 miles of power lines underground so as to prohibit wildfires from starting or from getting out of control.  This should have been done long ago.  Meanwhile, Larry Elder has qualified to be on the ballot in September when the citizens of the Golden State boot Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom out on his butt.  Mr. Elder has become the frontrunner.   Most of the chef-authors here in the Golden State like Mr. Elder and believe he will make a phenomenal governor although there will be horrendous gridlock until we can get more Republicans into the state Assembly and Senate in November 2022.  One thing is for certain: with “Nazi” Newsom gone, things will infinitely improve as Mr. Elder is no Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Thank God.
  90. 2022 Friday:  Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with each of us.  We all know the ‘truth is out there’ and when it comes to ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden, the truth swirls around us like a Chi-Com shit storm.  They said President Trump was in the pay of Russian thug Vladimir Putin when in fact, it’s Joe Biden and his entire corrupt family that is in the pay of not only the Russians but the Chi-Coms and the Mexican cartels.  IF anyone is stupid enough to believe that the Biden crime family is not receiving a cut on every illegal alien crossing the border into the U.S., you must be insane.  What other reason that that (1) the Dems believe they are going to hold power forever because of the illegals and (2) the Biden Family is making a killing off each one who crosses the border.  This is insidious and it must stop and in November, we will stop it.  Let me know what you think- Chef E.C. McCardle.

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

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

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

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0898 a 24” x 36” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Arizona.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

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

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

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

  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Outgoing German Chancellor Angela Merkel came to Washington, D.C., today to meet with the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece.  They had an enjoyable conversation.

  82. 2021 Thursday I:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Los Angeles reimposes a mask mandate as COVID-19 variant cases continue to skyrocket.  Could it be happening because of the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens being settled in the City of the Angels?  Los Angeles is requiring ALL citizens- vaccinated and unvaccinated- must wear masks or face the consequences.   Speaking of Chi-Vi vaccines, Joe Biden is reaching out to celebrities to go out and encourage everyone to get the shots NOW.   Elsewhere, South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson says that NO school within their state can force any student to get vaccinated or to show proof of Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations.  In other COVID-19-related news, CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky says that it’s ‘within our power to control a fall surge of the Chi-Vi.’

  84. 2021 Thursday K:  Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– As disquieting news continues to come out of the Arizona 2020 Election Audit regarding the fraud and criminality that occurred in the Copper State on Election Night and in the subsequent days, House Democratic-Socialists continue trying to derail the process.   Let ‘em try.   Author Michael Wolff says that Fox News Channel gleefully took down President Donald J. Trump by calling Arizona early that night.  Scumbags.
  85. 2021 Thursday L:  Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden continues to draw flak as he continues lying about the 2020 Presidential Election and various states’ efforts at carrying out audits.   Next, Joe Biden says that the ‘U.S. will protect the U.S. embassy in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, but won’t send American troops to help re-establish law and order on the benighted island.
  86. 2021 Thursday M:  Political News I– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, is calling out the hypocrisy of Senator Bernie Sanders, CPUSA-VT, for not calling the Cuban crisis what it is: the people are sick of communism and are seeking to revolt.     Next, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the “DOJ, the Biden regime, MUST answer for the alleged crimes of Hunter Biden.”  Amen.  Meanwhile, prosecutors are requesting that the Capitol Hill ‘rioter’ who carried the Trump flag onto the Senate floor does time in prison.’  What is up with these goobers?  Riots went on all last year and the human garbage involved them are out wandering about while patriots swept up in the greatest false flag operation in the history of the United States face years, even decades in federal slammers.  This is NOT America, and that pompous fat ass Gen. Mark Milley has the nerve to call Trump supporters, “Nazis?”  Look in the mirror, general.
  87. 2021 Thursday N:  Political News II– Rep. Thomas Massie, R-KY 4th congressional district, and Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, are blasting House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s January 06, 2021, Select Committee probe as being little more than a flagrant waste of time.  Next, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that the Democrats possess an ’authoritarian impulse.’  We could have told you that, senator.   Moving on, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that the ‘U.S. does not need the U.N.’s help combatting racism in the United States.’   Speaking of racism, Rep. Brad Schneider, D-IL 10th congressional district, finds himself the target of a lawsuit by a female black staffer named Patrice Campbell who claims the work environment is both hostile and racist.   Her supervisor, Karen Davidman apparently told Ms. Campbell to ‘get a rope and put it around her neck’ and then when she complained, was pigeon-holed.  That’s Democrats for you and they call Republicans ‘racists.’  LOL.
  88. 2021 Thursday O:  Political News III– A new Gallup poll says that distrust of Fake News Media is increasing and that appreciation for law enforcement is going up across the country.  Two more heavy-duty blows atop the Democrat scumbags’ shoulders.   (Note- no wonder they are rushing in millions of illegal aliens, folks, using them to REPLACE the American people).  Meanwhile, a new Skynova poll says that 88-percent of the American people are terrified by the skyrocketing inflation being caused by senile old Joe Biden.  Elsewhere, as New York state goes to war against Chick-Fil-A restaurants in its state, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says he will ‘go to war’ for the successful chicken franchise.  Speaking of the Empire State, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov is set to answer questions in the probe swirling around him this weekend.  No wonder the big schmeckel has been quiet lately.   Finally, Rep.

  90. 2021 Thursday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– We suspect the NFL must be trying to follow the NBA into doing more business in communist China than in the U.S. because the league is promising MORE WOKE social justice messaging in the upcoming season.  Folks, although we may report final scores as we did last year, none of us are going to buy anymore merchandise nor will we watch any more games.  Message to NFL_ “F**k you.”  In 10 years, you will regret your decision.
  91. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. Senate News I– The U.S. Senate passed a bill today BARRING imports from Xinjiang Province in communist China, the place where Chinese Nazis inter Uighur Muslims.  They use them as slave labor as they try to batter them into submission.  Good.  NO more goods from the Chi-Coms period.  Bring the supply chains home.  Anyhow, the name of today’s act is the Uighur Forced Labor Prevention Act- the UFLPA.
  92. 2021 Thursday S: Federal and State Court News– Pop singer Britney Spears is now able to hire her own attorney.  That, friends, is a step forward.

  94. 2021 Thursday U: President Donald J. Trump News– America’s President Donald J. Trump gave an “I-told-you-so” as news continues coming out showing that Fox News Channel called the state of Arizona early so as to help the Democrats steal the 2020 Presidential Election.  (Note- we also believe that in the Copper State, Martha McSally would still be a GOP vote in the U.S. Senate.  Lots of shenanigans underfoot on Election night and in the subsequent hours).  Next, President Donald J. Trump and U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy have set a date to meet together in New Jersey.
  95. 2021 Thursday V: Florida State News– Norwegian cruise lines is unhappy with the ban on COVID-19 vaccine passports and is suing the Florida Surgeon General Dr. Scott A. Rivkees, M.D. to get one imposed so they can require them before their passengers can embark on a cruise.   In other Sunshine State news, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis announced today a $106 million civics program as the Democratic-Socialists continue trying to ramrod Criminal Race Theory (Critical Race Theory) down the throats of the people.
  96. 2021 Thursday W: Economic News– The White House is dancing the jig today.  Last week, first-time jobless benefits claims fell from 382,000 the previous week to 360,000 last week.  This is good news?  Atop that we learn that 1.8 million Americans turned down work during the heavy days of the Chi-Vi Wuhan Bat Flu pandemic.
  97. 2022 Friday: This year’s news will appear next year.  Meanwhile, in a couple of weeks, my family and I will be flying to Taipei to vacation on the island of Taiwan.  See you all soon.

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

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

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

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

[v] See previous footnote.

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

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

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

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

SUMMER SESSION 2022

192. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, JULY 11, 2022:

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

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

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

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

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

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

  63. 2018 Monday:  President Donald J. Trump announces his second pick for the U.S. Supreme Court: Brett Kavanaugh.  In order to take the seat of his mentor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Kavanaugh would have to undergo one of the most grueling confirmation processes heretofore seen in recent times in this country.  Eventually, he would persevere, but the Democrats in the U.S. Senate did everything imaginable to destroy this excellent jurist.  God bless you, Justice Kavanaugh.
  64. 2019 Tuesday:  The MPs of Northern Ireland vote to expand LGBTQIA+ rights as well as increase the availability of abortion throughout the predominantly Protestant piece of the UK to bring it into line with not only the United Kingdom but the European Union as well.  Sad.
  65. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: Here are today’s stats for communist China’s gift to the world, Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu, aka COVID-19, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis, first the planet: 12,068,034 confirmed cases, UP 157814 new cases, 550,159 confirmed deaths, UP 3,841, and 6,611,524 confirmed recoveries, UP 105,116.  Next, here are the numbers for the United States: 3,165,058 confirmed cases, UP 61,791, 135,094 confirmed deaths, UP 878, and 951,053 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,624.

Gavin Newsom shares NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the numbers for the Aloha State: 1,094 confirmed cases, 19 confirmed deaths, and 811 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the numbers for the Evergreen State (a place we call the “Ever-Red State” because of its communist politics): 38,517 confirmed cases, 1,394 confirmed deaths, and like California, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Thursday B: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: Here are today’s Stock Market numbers: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 25,706.09 DOWN 361.19 points (1.39%).  Next, here are the numbers for the NASDAQ: 10,547.75, UP 55.25 points (0.53%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,152.05, DOWN 17.89 points (0.56%).  Here is the price for GOLD: $1,808.20 per troy oz, +4.40 (+0.24%).  Next, the price of SILVER: $19.02 per troy oz., +0.058 (+0.31%).  Here is the price for PLATINUM: $852.50, +5.60 (+0.66%).  Here is today’s price for COPPER: $2.84 per #, +0.004 (+0.14%).  Finally, here is the price for Light Sweet Crude Oil: $39.59 per barrel, -0.03 (-0.08%).
  68. 2020 Thursday C: On the final day of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term, the high court handed down two decisions, both regarding President Donald J. Trump.  First, in Trump v. Vance (Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.  
  69. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look.  WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment. 
  70. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 186,796,737 confirmed cases, +490,353, 4,034,388 confirmed deaths, +8,623 and 170,860,616 confirmed recoveries, +405,277.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,707,369 confirmed cases, UP 30,476 from yesterday’s reporting, 622,665 confirmed deaths, UP 452, [vii] and 29,221,947 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,753.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[viii]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 304,305 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

[ix]    
  73. 2021 Friday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 845,379 confirmed cases, 6,434 confirmed deaths, and 834,998 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Somalia, 143rd country on the list: 14,995 cases of the virus, 775 confirmed deaths and 7,252 confirmed recoveries.

[xiv]        
  75. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.308 per gallon, $3.012 in Florida, $4.040 in Hawaii, and $3.827 in Washington state. [xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Vermont: $3.046.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Burkina Faso: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon. [xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,502,613,982,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here we are, Day No. 170 for the Biden regime to have usurped power from the rightful president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 108 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, aka the gibbering jackal, aka the screeching banshee, aka the tittering orangutan to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border.  Today is also 14 days since her first and last visit to the border and we don’t expect to see her back at the border until President Donald J. Trump visits the region again.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the stats for the illegal alien calamity for which the Biden regime bears 150-percent responsibility as presented by One America News channel: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the riffraff crossing the southern border: $570,053,440.  Next, here are the costs of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens this year (2): $207,693,398,016.  Next, (3) this is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year: 2,128,691.  Finally, (4) Total Number of illegal aliens estimated to be roaming the country: 36,128,692.  Note- this is a conservative effort as we at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have as far back as 2009 when our blog underwent founding believe the number then was between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the truer number of illegal aliens lurking in America’s shadows is closer to 75-100 million.  Time to round them up and to begin deporting this human fecal matter back to whence they came.   If we want to keep the brats, let’s put them into military academies and then use them to fight Third World regime change wars.
  78. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Following the brutal assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, at least two Americans are among the 17 suspected assassins scooped up by Haitian law enforcement.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse as they normally do in Haiti, Port-au-Prince is begging that the United States send them troops to help them quell the violence.  Time for ‘Papa Doc’ and the Ton-Ton Macoute to come back and restore order, i.e., maybe a little bit of cannibalism will get everyone back in line?
  79. 2021 Friday I: Joe Biden News I– Slobbering Joe Biden is pushing Russia’s Vladimir Putin to do something about hacking U.S. companies.  Next, decrepit old Joe has nominated failed Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti to become the next U.S. ambassador to India.  Next, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece told him to fire holdover from the Trump presidency, Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul after he refused to resign.  Apparently, Democrats and their allied hacks in labor unions and advocates for welfare despised the guy and he had to go.  Thus he did.  C’est la vie.
  80. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Democratic leaders are doing what they do best and that is threatening another long, sweltering summer of unmitigated violence.  I say, ‘we give it to them!’ Next, the first group to appear before House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘January 06, 2021, Select Committee’ will be Capitol Hill law enforcement officers when the panel begins.  These cops- under control of Speaker “Mumbles”- will be the first panel to dance to Pelosi’s jig.  Will they be the ones we have seen on film welcoming protesters and directing them as to where to go inside the U.S. Capitol on that day?  We expect the False Flag Operation orchestrated by the nonagenarian speaker and her cohorts will be evident for what it is: a load of hooey.
  81. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Lt. General Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., is endorsing Vernon Jones in his bid to unseat extremely unpopular RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, he reacted angrily to the BS flowing out of the White House regarding the state’s cleaning up of its voting system and said that ‘BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lying about the Peach State’s changes to its voting laws.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, is back to beating a dead horse, “Medicare for All.”  Enough already, “Pucker Puss.”
  82. 2021 Friday L: Political News III– Former governor and UN ambassador under President Donald J. Trump, Nikki Haley, put forth two endorsements today (not that they matter) in two gubernatorial races in the nation.  First, in New Jersey, she has endorsed Republican Jack Ciattarelli and in Virginia, Republican Glenn Youngkin.  We shall see what happens.  Oh, President Donald J. Trump calls Virginia Democratic-Socialist candidate Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe a ‘political hack.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s rushed withdrawal from Afghanistan that it reignites the fears of the terrorists coming here.
  83. 2021 Friday M: Political News IV– In other political news, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that ‘buyers of Hunter Biden’s ‘art’ will remain ANONYMOUS.  Folks, can you fathom what would happen if say Baron Trump was painting artworks and selling them for hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars?  Ye gods, folks, there would be so many investigations on Capitol Hill that all other work of government would come to a screeching halt so every moment of every waking day could be spent investigation such an outrage.  Yet, when crack-headed pedophile Hunter Biden does it, it’s NO big deal.  Retribution is coming folks and it’s going to hit the Democrats like a tidal wave beginning this September when California boots Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  The big day is September 14.  EVERYONE VOTE.
  84. 2021 Friday N: Moron News I– We haven’t had any Moron News lately but little Sandy Cortez, aka “The Fly,” aka “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” aka “AOC,” is blaming fossil fuel executives for flooded New York City subways.  That’s like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, blaming the horrible forest fire in northern California on ‘global warming,’ aka ‘climate change,’ aka ‘extreme weather,’ or whatever other moniker they choose to put on it when it’s failure to clean the forests and to continue building water infrastructure so that when crises hit- like the ongoing drought- water is available to offset it.  Both Sandy Cortez and “Nazi” Newsom are MORONS.  At least, California is going to get him out on September 14 (unless, of course, the ‘fix is in’ which it might be).  As for AOC and her subways, Baby Girl- if I can call you that- the reason the subways are flooded is because NYC is spending money on social re-engineering projects instead of doing what must be done and that is to maintain and improve existing infrastructure.  God knows there’s more than enough tax dollars in both the city and in the Empire State.
  85. 2021 Friday O: Federal and State Court News– North Dakota is suing the Biden regime over its cancelation of new fossil fuel contracts on public lands.  Good.  Sue the heck out of them.
  86. 2021 Friday P: Fake News I– John King of CNN- pompous, conceited ass- is upset by Alabama GOP Senate candidate Jessica Taylor’s new ad in which a rocket ‘launches’ liberal ideas and values into space and she mispronounces the name of our ‘esteemed “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  The fake news-spouting hack called the ad ‘VILE!’  Ah, wah, wah, wah, John, STFU.  Ms. Taylor is in the running to replace retiring Senator Richard Shelby.
  87. 2021 Friday Q: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump endorses former secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior Ryan Zinke in his bid to return to Congress from the great state of Montana.
  88. 2021 Friday R: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Stay tuned for the results of Mega Millions Draw #1675 with a $94 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers for tonight’s draw: 06, 37, 39, 41, 46, and Mega 17.  Out of 52,071 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $14,270.
  89. 2022 Saturday: Please join us later in the day to discover the truth…
