  54. 2016 Saturday: Ahead of the upcoming GOP National Convention, Apple Inc. says that because candidate Donald J. Trump is such an ‘evil ogre,’ they won’t be providing any funds or other support to the convention.  They claim that Mr. Trump has said things negative to women, illegal aliens, and homosexuals, most of which is either blown out of proportion or straight-out bulls**t.   (Note- Big Tech is showing its hand already, folks…)
  55. 2017 Sunday: Emanuel Macron’s political party wins big in the second round of the legislative elections.  Elsewhere, a new ‘health study’ in the United States says it’s wise to avoid the use of coconut oil (which makes the absolute best popcorn) and go with something like canola oil or other such U.S.-produced vegetable oils.  A year or two later, there would be much discussion as to whether canola oil is actually a cancer-causing oil?  We understand the best oils to use are either olive or avocado and yes, coconut oil, too.  Avoid the other crap.
  56. 2018 Monday: President Donald J. Trump announces the establishment of a sixth branch of the U.S. military, the U.S. Space Force with which to counter the threats of communist China, Vladimir Putin’s Russia, India, Iran, and other states seeking to control outer space.   Elsewhere, a dimwitted Palestinian thug tries to sneak into Israel.  While fiddling with automated border technology way beyond the farthest realms of his intelligence, the defensive device detonates and kills the imbecile.  Of course, the Palestinians are angry over this incident of suicide by stupidity.
  57. 2019 Tuesday: An International Tribunal in London announces that communist China has been harvesting the organs of marginalized peoples in prison camps on an industrial scale.  This should be shocking to everyone that this communist POS country would commit crimes against humanity on this scale yet the United Nations and nations around the globe say…nothing.  Crickets.  Free Mainland China NOW!  Meanwhile in Hong Kong, Carrie Lam, leader of the independent former British Crown Colony apologizes for having introduced the Beijing-sponsored ‘extradition bill’ that would send accused criminals to communist Mainland China for trial.  She withdrew it because people demanding freedom forced her to do it, she had no choice.
  58. 2020 Thursday: China’s ‘gift to the world,’ the coronavirus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, created in Wuhan and dispatched around the world, continues causing problems.  Here are the global stats for today: 8,400,320 confirmed cases, 450,435 confirmed deaths, and 4,109,183 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, here are the stats: 2,230,920 confirmed cases, 120,147 confirmed deaths, and 698,390 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist China American Institute of Culinary Politics- The Elemental News of the Day has chef-authors- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 161,099 confirmed cases, 5,290 confirmed deaths, but as has become the norm, ZERO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 744 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 639 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Democratic-Socialist hellhole of Washington, here are the stats: 27,145 confirmed cases, 1,245 confirmed deaths, and but like California, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these political scumbags, shame.  As for unemployment claims, more than 1.5 million Americans filed for unemployment claims last week.

  61. 2021 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 299,011 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 160,638 deaths

[xxi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000028.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.66.     In Mauritanian Ouguiya, one greenback equals 357.00 and in Mauritian Rupee, a buck equals 40.75 and in Moldovan Leu, one dollar equals 17.74 of theirs.[xxii]        
  65. 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 $4.228 per gallon, $2.953 in Florida, $3.978 in Hawaii, and $3.630 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.724.  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- El Salvador: $3.797 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,421,896,732,639 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xxv]  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 Saudi Arabia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea with $131 of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for position).[xxvi]
  66. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says of Joe Biden and ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris (by the way, this is Day #87 she has held this job, folks, and has yet to do one day’s work in this extremely important job), that ‘neither of them have any intention of visiting or fixing the border.’  We are sending checks to the Texas-Arizona effort to continue building the wall.  (Note- we would send even more money if they were going to lay in minefields, seed the area along the Rio Grande with loads of rattlesnakes, and other anti-personnel obstacles and barriers.  Something must happen here).
  67. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The Palestinians were set to receive 1 million doses of the Chi-Vi vaccine from Israel and then refused them by claiming they were going to expire soon.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, as Canada continues to follow the path forward blazed by Mao Zedong in the 1940s and 1950s, U.S. businesses are concerned over the failure of the Canucks to reopen their border so normal business and tourism can recommence.  (Note- we think Ottawa is going down a dark path and are using the Xi Jinping Bat Flu as their excuse for cutting off communications between our two countries.  None of us want to visit that Third World country again, especially after they interfered in the 2020 Presidential Election- that means YOU, Justin Trudeau, which means YOU, Dominion Voting Systems, which means you, YOU Marx-loving losers).
  68. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Unvaccinated West Point cadets are under a great deal of pressure to get the COVID-19 vaccine or face solitary confinement.  Look, most of the U.S. military is not taking the vaccine so why should the military cadets?  Many of us remember the innumerable problems that surrounded U.S. military personnel given anthrax and other oddball vaccinations prior to George W. Bush’s illegal war in Iraq.  We stand with the cadets.   Next- and this is a good one- apparently, the AstraZeneca Chi-Com vaccine is NOT GOOD ENOUGH to get tickets to see Bruce “The Boring” Springsteen on Broadway.  Alas, what is GOOD ENOUGH- the Johnson & Johnson soul-stealing vaccine?  We didn’t want to see “The Loser” anyway.
  69. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Forever-pissed Stacey Abrams, election-stealing expert says she is backing Senator Joe Manchin’s voting compromise that will make Election Day a national holiday as well as to cement 15 days of early voting.  If an angry cow such as Ms. Abrams is supporting it, then it can’t be good.  (Note- we always hope that Senator Machin will ‘do the right thing’ but it’s clear that he is as malleable as is silly putty under the right pressure.
  70. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News– Rep. Andrew Garbarino, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that Joe Biden is not tough enough on the cybersecurity front.   In other Joe Biden news, former White House physician and current Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th congressional district, is demanding the ‘drooler-in-chief,’ feeble old “Gropin’ Joe” Biden must take a cognitive test and even more importantly, release the results to the American people.  We wholeheartedly concur.
  71. 2021 Friday K: Political News I– As questions continue to rise over what exactly happened on January 06, 2021, and the cacophony of misinformation swirling around the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION the nation has ever seen, brave patriots are now asking questions as to what the FBI and their pro-Beijing Director Chris Wray knew and when did they know.  Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, perhaps one of the greatest patriots the country has ever seen, asked the top question regarding this ginned-up mob of Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter: “Did the FBI animate the events of that day?”  (Note- we suspect they were in the thick of it, hence WHY there are more than 14,000 hours of video from that day that the public has yet to see.  We do know police on the backside of the Capitol Building waved the mob inside.  We also know that ONCE you see Confederate battle flags flying, you know the FALSE FLAG OPERATION is underway because much like the Tea Party, they never carried rebel flags, Nazi flags, or signs calling for the death of politicians.  There are not enough prisons to silence all of us.
  72. 2021 Friday L: Political News II– Two losers both on the View- lard-lady Meghan McCain (a RINO if ever one existed) and the extremely angry and belligerent (and unattractive) Whoopi Goldberg came close to trading blows on the highly-overrated program over angry old Joe Biden’s treatment of a female reporter.  Yeah, that was pretty bad.  While we dislike both these women, we would love to see ‘Lard Lady’ plant one smack dab in the puss of both Whoopi and ‘Joyless’ Joy Behar.  That would be Pay-per-View TV,  folks.
  73. 2021 Friday M: Political News III– Vice President Mike Pence speaking at the Faith and Freedom Conference in Florida was heckled and booed as a ‘traitor.’  The offenders were escorted out and the vice president’s speech continues.  Meanwhile, there’s a growing clamor for Joe Biden to ask for the resignation of “Kooky Kamala” Harris so he can replace the gibbering jackal with someone actually willing to do the job.  There also is a new bill coming forward demanding that before Willie Brown’s mattress can visit Europe, she visit the southern border FIRST.  Wow.
  74. 2021 Friday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Department of Homeland Security Director Alejandro Mayorkas said today- without giving us a single incidence (other than the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, which is BULLS**T) that domestic terrorism, aka white ‘supremacism’ is the federal government’s number one foe, NOT Chi-Com MSS agents, NOT violent jihadists, NOT Russian agents, NOT Antifa (remember- they’re just a philosophy), and not Black Lives Matter but white folks.  We would encourage Secretary Mayorkas to begin putting up all the threats that have been stopped so we can have some verification that what he claims is true.  Otherwise, we look at it as little more than propaganda.
  75. 2021 Friday O: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The husband of Ashli Babbitt still seeks answers as to WHY a federal police officer felt so emboldened that he could shoot dead an unarmed woman climbing through a broken window and without warning of the impending shot?  Folks, everyone knows that what happened on January 06, 2021, has been transformed into mythic proportions but the black officer who shot her dead must come forward and answer the questions the American people demand to KNOW.  We believe that U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi- the nonagenarian clinging to the gavel in the House mandated that some people had to die so they could spin the FALSE FLAG OPERATION for the next 60 years which led to the death of Officer Brian Sicknick and U.S. military veteran Babbitt.  Call us ‘conspiracy theorists’ but don’t you think that it’s rather peculiar what actually happened with all of the lies we’ve been told?
  76. 2021 Friday P: Big Tech News– A major poll shows that the majority of Americans believe it’s time to break up Big Tech.
  77. 2021 Friday Q: Religion News– Catholic bishops are moving closer to denying Pro-Death Joe Biden communion over his crazy stance on abortion at all stages and the tacit approval of the selling of baby body parts which friends, puts us on a par with the frigging Chi-Coms.  We contend they should excommunicate EVERY politician supporting the Pro-Death Movement just as they should anyone seeking to topple the Hyde Amendment.
  78. 2021 Friday R: U.S. Senate News– Conniving Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, says he is ‘going to force a vote on S. 1, the former “For the People Act,’ newly renamed the “John Lewis Voting Rights Act of 2021,” next week in the Senate and will do it sans any input from the Republicans.  Wow.
  79. 2021 Friday S: Economic News– The Fed’s Neel Kashkari advises against rate hikes until sometime towards the end of 2023.  Meanwhile, because of cancellations across 2020-2021, American Airlines has had to refund more than $12 billion in airline tickets.
  80. 2021 Friday T: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega Millions Draw #1669 with a $30 million pot on the line: 14, 36, 44, 46, 53, and Mega 18.  Out of 42,648 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $23,671.
  81. 2021 Friday U: The Wrap Up–  Late breaking news this evening says that- voila!- today, the Biden regime froze military aid to the Ukraine- including lethal weaponry.  This occurs smack dab on the heels of uh, the, uh, Putin-Biden summit in Geneva, Switzerland.  Now, we have been around long enough to recall that when President Donald J. Trump SUPPOSEDLY held up aid to Ukraine to ‘get dirt’ on the Bidens, Democrats impeached him- the first time.  Wow.  Where’s the little bitch, Rep. Adam “Bug-Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district?  What about that ogre, Rep. Jerrold “Tub of Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th congressional district?  Where are the calls for “IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!  IMPEACHMENT!”  Where are they?  Not long after this report appeared, the Biden regime said it ‘was nonsense.’  Sure, right.  You gave Vladimir Putin the oil pipeline and now you’ve finished the job you and Barack Hussein Obama started; you are giving the Ukraine to Vladimir Putin.  My, my, my, the cockroaches always come out at night (and in Hawaii, they fly)…
  82. 2022 Saturday: Everyone knows the drill…

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

[ii] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[iii] Not sure when Guns ‘n’ Roses is coming but we hope we will still be alive and will get around to sharing them with the world.

[iv] NONE of us believe we will live long enough to promote the music of Ravi Shankar although we wish we could.  Ditto classical music but then- you just never know.

[v] We look forward to promoting the music of the Blues Project within the next five years or so.

[vi] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[vii] We promoted the music of Buffalo Springfield beginning on Saturday, 17-November-2012 through Saturday, 24-November-2012.  We hope you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your collection.  You will be glad you did.

[viii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time, we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so, please remain vigilant.

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

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

[xi] At some point, we will do the music of Sonny & Cher the same time we do the Mamas and the Papas.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[xii] We hope to share the music of this legendary artist, the VOICE of the Summer of Love and far beyond.  “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…”

[xiii] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely-Hearts Club Band” appeared on Tuesday, 22-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[xiv] Not sure as to when we will do the music of Bruce Springsteen.

27. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews. The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 209

114. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 24, 2022:

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Peter Vivian Daniel; U.S. Secretary of Defense Louis A. Johnson; Badfinger featuring Pete Ham, Blondie featuring Nigel Harrison, Creedence Clearwater Revival featuring Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, “Diamond Dogs” by David Bowie, and the Electric Prunes featuring Preston Ritter:

  1. 858 Wednesday: St. Nicholas I succeeds the 104th Pope Benedict III to become the 105th Roman Catholic Pope.

  7. 1784 Saturday: The future 28th associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court- Peter Vivian Daniel- was born in Stafford County, Virginia, on this date.  A Democrat, he was appointed to the nation’s high court by President Martin Van Buren to fill the seat vacated by 25th Associate Justice Philip Pendleton Barbour.  Daniel served on the Supreme Court from 01-10-1842 to 05-31-1860 when he died.
  8. 1792 Tuesday: Captain Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle composed the national anthem of France, “La Marseillaise,” on this date.
  9. 1800 Thursday: Congress approved a bill establishing the Library of Congress and President John Adams signed it into being, which appropriates $5,000 to purchase “such books as may be necessary for use of Congress.”

  12. 1867 Wednesday: Black demonstrators stage ride-ins on Richmond, Virginia, streetcars.
  13. 1877 Tuesday: In defense of Romania, Russia declares war on the Ottoman Empire.  Meanwhile, the last Federal occupation troops withdraw from the South, departing through New Orleans, Louisiana, for home.  This would open the door to horrendous actions by Southern Democrats and their allies, the Ku Klux Klan.  Every Black American needs to recall who the REAL villains in their mistreatment were and have been: the two groups above are responsible for their persecution and for Jim Crow/Segregation laws.
  14. 1884 Thursday: In Atlanta, Georgia, the Black National Physicians Organization organizes.

  19. 1915 Saturday: What’s regarded as the start of the Armenian Genocide began as the Ottoman Empire rounded up Armenian political and cultural leaders in Constantinople.  Although persecutions against Christians had been ongoing since Turkey joined the Central Powers- German Empire, Austro-Hungary, and Bulgaria- they were going to step up the pressure, fearful that they would have enemies in their rear areas.  Elsewhere, on the Western Front, the Second Battle of Ypres continues as Germans continue making gains.  On the Eastern Front, the Austro-Hungarians are making headway in the western Ukraine against the Russian bear.
  20. 1916 Monday: Some 1,600 Irish nationalists launched the Easter Uprising by seizing several key sites in Dublin; however, the British crushed it almost a week later.   The Irish felt that with the British occupiers suffering heavy losses in World War I, this might be a grand opportunity to drive them out of the Emerald Isle.
  21. 1917 Tuesday: Fighting continues to rage in the French countryside as British, French, and German forces throw all they have at one another.  Elsewhere, the Ukraine demands independence from Czarist Russia.
  22. 1918 Wednesday: Heavy fighting continues in the Somme as the Germans continue their all-out offensive to drive the Allies out of the war.  Starvation and lack of medicine is plaguing both sides in this titanic struggle, one that has another 4-5 months to go.   Meanwhile, the British and Turks announce a decision for a prisoner exchange.
  23. 1937 Saturday: In Lima, Ohio, future saxophonist with Blood, Sweat & Tears in 1972- Joe Henderson is born.
  24. 1940 Wednesday: German forces in Norway continue solidifying their positions as reinforcements arrive with which to counter the Brits who are trying to keep Norway free and independent.  However, preparations for the invasion of France continue as Germans continue building their troop strength up, much of it in the heavily wooded Ardennes Forest.
  25. 1941 Thursday: Resistance in Greece is dying as the Germans and their allied Axis troops continue pushing Greek and British defenders back to the southern portion of the country.  In Yugoslavia, resistance is also sputtering to an end.  Elsewhere, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt orders military leaders to keep track of all German Kriegsmarine movements so the information can be forwarded to the British government, on the sly of course, as the U.S. is not yet in the war.
  26. 1942 Friday: The Luftwaffe steps up its attacks against British heritage sites as heavy bombers target sites up and down the eastern coast of Great Britain.  The British are determined to withstand the assault while the Germans are doing their best to bomb them into submission.
  27. 1943 Saturday: The Germans are startled as they begin to clear the Warsaw Ghetto of its Jews.  The Jews have guns, are firing back, killing German soldiers, and destroying German vehicles.  In response, the Germans begin setting buildings on fire.  However, the defenders in these buildings either fight to the death or retreat through pre-cut holes in walls or into the sewers to fight another day.
  28. 1944 Monday: The first B-29 arrived in Nationalist China, flying ‘over the hump’ of the Himalayas.  Elsewhere, now that Italy is on the Allied side, their warplanes are flying sorties against their former German allies in the Aegean Sea attacking garrisons holding islands and ports.   The Germans respond with violence against Italian prisoners.
  29. 1945 Tuesday: Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, future drummer of both Creedence Clearwater Revival[i] and Creedence Clearwater Revisited, was born in Palo Alto, California, on this date in history.  Meanwhile in World War II, the Soviets continue their pincer movement around Berlin as one army begins fighting into the suburbs from the South while from the east, another is pummeling its way into the city from that direction.  Germans are still able to enter and exit the city at this time as the Soviets have not yet sealed the city off on all sides.  Hitler has a chance to fly out but won’t take it- or so we believe.
  30. 1949 Sunday: Future drummer of the psychedelic rock band, the Electric Prunes- Preston Ritter- is born on this date.[ii]
  31. 1951 Tuesday: Nigel Harrison—future bassist with the New York rock band, Blondie[iii] (1978-82 / 1997)—is born in Stockport, Cheshire, England, on this date.

  33. 1953 Friday: British statesman Winston Churchill was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.
  34. 1954 Saturday: After the heavy fighting on and around Huguette 6 last night and early this morning, French commanders in Dien Bien Phu understand that they no longer have the manpower on hand to launch major counterattacks against their communist opponents.  Losses last night were fierce with the loss of several units whose survivors were cobbled together into a new unit.   According to author Martin Windrow, morale was once again flagging on both sides as French defenders had been going with little sleep, few hot meals, and hardly any baths now for 45 days while the communists were scraping up reserves from across the countryside and trying to reinvigorate them for the third phase of the battle.  Casualties were horrendous for both sides. 
  35. 1961 Monday: Sandy Koufax of the Los Angeles Dodgers struck out 18 batters, becoming the first major-league pitcher to do so on two separate occasions.  Elsewhere, President John F. Kennedy accepted ‘sole responsibility’ for the disaster HE set in motion at the Bay of Pigs in Cuba.  He committed Cuban exiles to action to overthrow Fidel Castro and then in their hour of need, he abandoned them to death or to long prison terms in Cuban prisons.  
  36. 1962 Tuesday: The Massachusetts Institute of Technology achieved the first satellite relay of a television signal, using NASA’s Echo 1 balloon satellite to bounce a video image from Camp Parks, California, to Westford, Massachusetts.
  37. 1963 Wednesday: In the 17th NBA Finals, the Boston Celtics beat the Los Angeles Lakers, 4 games to 2.

  42. 1970 Friday: China launches its first satellite Dong Fang Honk I which continually transmitted a song, “The East is Red.”  Flipping communist SOBS[iv].  
  43. 1971 Saturday: In Tampa, Florida, heavyweight boxer Earnie Shavers scores a TKO at the 0:33 second mark of Round 4 in a scheduled 10-round heavyweight bout over opponent, Willie Johnson.  This put Shavers’ record to 25-2.
  44. 1973 Tuesday: Albert Sabin reported that herpes viruses were factors in nine kinds of cancer.
  45. 1974 Wednesday: The NFL grants a franchise team to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.  Meanwhile, David Bowie[v] released “Diamond Dogs.”  
  46. 1975 Thursday: In Weybridge, Surrey, England, Peter Ham—guitarist/vocalist with the British rock band, Badfinger[vi]—committed suicide on this date by hanging himself from the rafters of his garage; he was just 27-years-old.
  47. 1980 Thursday: To rescue the American hostages being held in Tehran, Iran, the operation fails as the helicopters either crash or stall due to an unforeseen sandstorm.  Eight American special operations soldiers die as a result, this singular event seals the fate of President Jimmy Carter in the November elections.
  48. 1982 Saturday: In West Germany, 150 followers of the Ayatollah Khomeini assault the student dormitory at a college campus. 
  49. 1990 Tuesday: East and West Germany agree to merge currencies and economies as of July 01, 1990, on the road to German Reunification.  Elsewhere, the space shuttle Discovery lifts off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, carrying the $1.5 billion Hubble Space Telescope into orbit.
  50. 1992 Friday: In Switzerland, rocker David Bowie[vii] marries fashion model, Imam.   Meanwhile, in Raleigh, North Carolina, heavyweight boxer James “Bonecrusher” Smith scores a TKO in Round 8 of an 8-round bout over opponent, Danny Wofford, to put his pro record to 33-9-1.
  51. 1995 Monday: A package bomb linked to the Unabomber explodes, killing Gilbert B. Murray.  
  52. 2003 Thursday: Former Deputy Prime Minister Tariq Aziz surrenders to U.S. forces in Iraq.  Elsewhere, in North Charleston, South Carolina, heavyweight boxer Oliver “The Atomic Bull” McCall scores a 3rd round TKO over opponent, Dennis McKinney, to put his pro record to 40-7-1.
  53. 2004 Saturday: The United States lifts economic sanctions imposed on Libya 18 years previously for its cooperation in eliminating weapons of mass destruction.   Meanwhile, the insurgency in Iraq is gathering steam as attacks on oil tankers in Basra occur as do suicide bombings around Sadr City that kill Iraqi government forces.  The bloom is quickly off the rose.  The U.S. should never have launched the invasion the previous year and yet, they did.  George W. Bush broke it; he now owns it.
  54. 2005 Sunday: Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger undergoes inauguration as the 265th pope of the Roman Catholic Church, taking the papal name of Benedict XVI.   Meanwhile, in Kuwait, 7,000 angry Bengali workers storm the Bangladeshi embassy demanding redress for unpaid wages.  Elsewhere, Saudi Arabia arrest 40 Pakistani Christians brazenly practicing their faith in Riyadh.  NOT good, folks, not good…for them.
  55. 2006 Monday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad lifts a 27-year-old ban on women attending public sporting events.  Wow.  Modernization on the way?  Nope.   
  56. 2007 Tuesday: Hamas decides to do what it does best today: terrorism.  They launch a barrage of missiles, rockets, and mortar shells into neighboring Israel.  Scumbags.  Use neutron bombs on this human garbage to cleanse the region of their pestilence.  Elsewhere, Kevin Tillman, brother of NFL star and slain soldier in the Afghan War Pat Tillman, testifies before Congress accusing the Bush administration of manipulating his ‘friendly fire’ death into something with which to increase recruitment and support for the ongoing regime change wars.
  57. 2008 Thursday: Following the recent destruction of a nuclear facility in Syria by the Israelis, the United States reports that North Korean technicians helped the Syrians build the reactor.  Good thing the Israelis blew it up.  Meanwhile, following Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s BIG WIN in Pennsylvania this past Tuesday, she has raked in $10 million in donations.  Both she and her opponent, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, are focusing their attentions on Indiana, the next big state in the primary battles.  Elsewhere, the United Nations is crying that the Israeli blockade of the Gaza Strip is preventing them from getting aid to the Palestinians.
  58. 2009 Friday: Not to be outdone by terrorists in Iraq yesterday, slavering jihadis carry out yet another suicide bombing in Baghdad, killing at least 80 people and wounding or crippling another 125.  Time to start lighting up the terrorists, we say, “Use neutron bombs, send these scumbags straight to hell.”  Elsewhere, North Korea plans to try two Current TV journalists they claim were on the soil, but evidence shows they were on the Chinese side of the Yalu River and were kidnapped by the North Koreans.  WTF?
  59. 2010 Saturday: Pakistani Taliban are launching attacks all over the place but especially against NATO supply lines.  The jihadist thugs torch six NATO fuel tankers and also blow up at least 30 people in a suicide attack on a prison van carrying thugs to prison.
  60. 2011 Sunday: Pope Benedict XVI performs Easter Mass at St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City; he calls for dialogue and diplomacy to end Libya’s unrest.  Elsewhere, a group of Jewish worshippers decided to visit a holy site in the Palestinian-controlled city without coordinating their visit with Israeli Defense Forces as required by law.  They went and prayed without event; then, when returning home, they mixed it up with Palestinian law enforcement who lit them up and killed at least one of the worshippers and injured several others.  Obey the law.  
  61. 2012 Tuesday: The Obama-controlled Pentagon is creating a new intelligence service, the Defense Clandestine Service that will (supposedly) investigate threats to U.S. national interests coming from nations such as North Korea, the Chi-Coms, and Iran.  Good.  Just what we need.  Another flipping spy agency in the hands of Barack Hussein Obama.  Meanwhile, Al-Jazeera reports that the case against imprisoned Pfc. Bradley Manning must be thrown out due to prosecutorial misconduct.
  62. 2013 Wednesday: Americans learn the FBI and CIA had previous intelligence from Russia warning U.S. intelligence agencies about Tamerlane Tsarnaev’s extremist connections before the Boston Marathon bombings.   Meanwhile, in Manchester, Illinois, a mass shooting occurs leaving five dead and another one or two injured.  As police track down the shooter and engage, the gunman is killed.
  63. 2014 Thursday:  The Federal Communications Commission moves away from the idea of net neutrality, in which all Internet users can equally access and view content; the agency instead proposes to allow large companies to pay Internet service providers for access to faster streaming “lanes.”  Meanwhile, it sounds like President Barack Hussein Obama, aka the Bamster, listened to us yesterday.  He is blasting Russian dictator Vladimir Putin for waging a war of aggression in the Ukraine and is threatening additional sanctions on Moscow.
  64. 2015 Friday: As the civil war continues raging in Yemen, UNICEF reports that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of children have been slain, wounded, or maimed for life in the savage fighting there.  Iran is meddling in this war, stirring up trouble for the Saudis and the rest of the Sunni world.  They believe that if they can bring Shias to power in Yemen, they will have the Kingdom nearly surrounded.
  65. 2016 Sunday: With the U.S. silent about the upcoming joint military exercises with South Korea, North Korea moves up 300 ballistic missile launchers near the demilitarized zone on the chance they may have to go to war with both the U.S. and their southern neighbors.  Speaking of President Obama, he says the U.S. won’t be deploying ground troops to Syria and sadly, he believes the last nine months of his time in office will not see ISIS defeated.  (Note- because YOU never tried, Bamster).
  66. 2017 Monday: Arkansas puts their thumb in the eyes of the leftists as it becomes the first state to execute NOT one murderer but two on the same day, something that has not occurred since 2000.  Convicted murderers Jack Jones Jr. and Marcel Williams meet their Maker via lethal injection.
  67. 2018 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump hosts his first state dinner for visiting French President Emanuel Macron.  Elsewhere, according to IFPI, streaming music service sales overtake that of CDs, LPs, and tapes.  Such a shame but young people are extremely unintelligent when it comes to sound quality.  Elsewhere, Thailand raises its hand and suggests that it would like to hold the upcoming summit between the United States and North Korea.
  68. 2019 Wednesday: “Brave Leader” Kim Jong Un arrives in Vladivostok, Russia, aboard his armored private train for his first meetings with Russian leader Vladimir Putin.  The talks will begin tomorrow.  Speaking of the ‘Brave Leader,’ four of his foreign ministry officials underwent execution over his failed second summit with President Donald J. Trump in Hanoi, Vietnam, back in February.  Accused of handing over sensitive information to the Americans, these unlucky four were lucky enough that all they faced was the firing squad and not some bizarre other form of execution dreamed up by Chairman Kim Jong Un.   
  69. 2020 Friday: As of 22:00 hours, the current number of confirmed COVID-19 cases around the world stands at 2,790,986; the current number of confirmed deaths worldwide sits at 195,920 but the confirmed recoveries sit at 781,382.  Sadly- thank you, communist China- the United States rapidly is approaching one million confirmed cases as this evening, we find 924,510 Wuhan Virus cases in the U.S.  Currently, we have 52,296 confirmed fatalities but 100,795 confirmed recoveries.   As for our People’s Republic of China ‘amigos,’ these scumbags claim (same every day) 88,423 confirmed cases with the same number of dead- 4,632 and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Everyone understands communists always lie and so they are.  As for the U.S. Stock Market, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes at 23,775.27, up 260.01 (1.11%); the NASDAQ closes 8,634.52, UP 139.77 (1.65%), and the S & P 500 ends at 2,836.74, UP 38.94 (1.39%).  The U.S. is and will recover and the PRC will pay an exorbitant price for the perfidy they have committed against the world.
  70. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 145,943,305 confirmed cases, +1,138,820, 3,091,553  confirmed deaths, +17,685, and 84,040,856 confirmed recoveries, +820,175.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,185,302 confirmed cases (down from yesterday’s figures), UP 146,041 from yesterday’s reporting, 576,265 confirmed deaths (down from yesterday’s numbers), UP 1,847,[viii] and 119,074,832 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix] 
  71. 2021 Saturday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 262,814 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    
  72. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,729,952 confirmed cases, 61,361 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,203,913 confirmed cases, 34,812 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,114 confirmed cases, 477 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 395,394 confirmed cases, 5,477 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Oregon, home of the most communists in the entire United States: they have 179,124 confirmed cases, 2,493 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  73. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,974 confirmed cases, 6,350 confirmed deaths, and 829,696 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Denmark, a wonderful place to visit but not to live: 246,643 cases of the virus, 2,472 confirmed deaths and 234,431 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  74. 2021 Saturday D:   Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,043.49, UP 227.59 points (+0.67%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,016.81, UP 198.40 points (+1.44%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,180.17, UP 45.19 points (+1.09%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.04 per barrel, -0.10 (-0.16%).  The price of GOLD is $1,776.70 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.05 per troy ounce, -0.02 (-0.10%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,232.00 per troy oz, -1.10 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, 0.00 (-0.08%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,855.15 per troy oz, +18.52 (+0.65%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $29,000.00 per troy oz., -200.00 (-0.68%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.82.     In Kazakhstani Tenge, one greenback equals 430.24 and in Lao Kip, a buck equals 9,405.00.[xv]  
  75. 2021 Saturday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.986 per gallon, $2.796 in Florida, $3.767 in Hawaii, and $3.407 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Michigan: $2.832.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,209,453,921,257 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.
  76. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden Border Catastrophe News I–  Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has been sharing photos on One America News (and probably other news networks as well) of ILLEGAL ALIENS being removed from holding pens and hotels along the border and dumped into airports in the region for transport to other parts of the country.  Yikes.   Elsewhere, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is being slammed, rightfully so, seeing as how 30 days have passed and the so-called ‘Border Czar’ has been nowhere near the flipping border.  WTF?   In other perplexing news, ICE ends placing fines on illegal aliens.  WTF about this, too?  
  77. 2021 Saturday G: Joe Biden News I– White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki- not the brightest bulb in the pack to be sure- says that drooling old Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress will likely NOT have many attendees as we are all observing COVID-19 restrictions. Yeah, right.  Sure.  Flipping old Joe is going to be swinging at a lot of balls but connecting with very few of them so we cannot have anyone observing the senile old coot too closely. 
  78. 2021 Saturday H: 2020 Election News / Election Integrity– As Democrats continue trying to throw roadblocks in the path of the Maricopa County, Arizona’s recount and election integrity efforts, Steve Bannon asks an incredibly simple question: WHAT ARE THE DEMS AFRAID OF?  That’s it in a nutshell, what the f**k are the Democrats trying to prevent the American people seeing?   Meanwhile President Donald J. Trump calls on Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, to provide not only more support to the ongoing effort to achieve election integrity but also security so that it can proceed without rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth liberal lunatics trying to halt it.  President Trump questions WHY Democrats are so determined to STOP the ongoing efforts to find out what the hell happened in the early morning hours after Election Day 2020 and also says, the ‘results will be startling.’
  79. 2021 Saturday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Indonesia announced today that their missing submarine is presumed lost and the crew dead.  How sad.  This is a horrible tragedy.  Next, Palestinians are behaving like they always do- like a bunch of Untermensch, this time in Jerusalem for the 11th night in a row.  Alas, what is their problem?  Well, since the start of Ramadan, they have been running amok in Jerusalem, causing Israeli Defense Forces to launch a harsh crackdown on the human garbage.  Meanwhile, their brethren across the border began firing rockets into Israel.  Sounds like someone is looking for a major ass-whooping, yet again.   Next, Southeast Asian nations have reached some sort of consensus over the crisis in Myanmar.  Hmmm, what are they going to do about it?  Finally, an avalanche near the Indo-Sino border sees 8 people killed but another 384 rescued.   Elsewhere, at least 27-30 people are dead in a Baghdad COVID-19 hospital blaze (probably set by jihadists being the kind, loving people they are).
  80. 2021 Saturday J: Social Media News–  President Donald J. Trump discussed his removal from Facebook and Twitter and notes that BOTH are extremely boring and that issuing press releases is much more elegant and informative.  Next, Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame presented his third program on the theft of the 2020 Presidential Election today, “Absolute Interference,” which is a mind-blower to see just how deep the hacks by the Chi-Coms were.  Lindell showed so much evidence that we do indeed hope that it ends up before the U.S. Supreme Court where- IF Chief Justice John Roberts does not behave as he normally does- things might change.
  81. 2021 Saturday K: COVID-19 News / Updates– It appears that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for the Chi-Vi will soon be back online, even though continued reports of deaths and intensified menstrual cycles continue to predominate the news cycle.   Next, a new MIT study questions the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci dictates regarding wearing of masks and maintaining social distancing from fellow human beings.   MIT questions whether social distancing works while Republicans demand evidence from the Centers for Disease Control regarding the need for children but especially children under the age of TWO to wear flipping masks.  NO evidence says they should.   
  82. 2021 Saturday L: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News I– First, an Oklahoma police officer, Nathan Ronan of the Lawton PD who was at the center of a deadly shooting has been cleared of ALL charges.  Next, the NYPD is searching for a gangbanging POS who drug one of theirs by a speeding vehicle before dumping him off in the streets.   Next, a guy in the Lone Star State was arrested after shooting a police officer in the shoulder.   Moving on, in the era of feeble old Joe Biden yet another gun crime occurs, this one on Bourbon Street in New Orleans in the wee hours of the morning where five people were shot (but none so far have died).   
  83. 2021 Saturday M: Law Enforcement And Crime And Punishment News II– Elsewhere, convicted murderer Derek Chauvin (whom we still believe is going to be cleared of all charges provided he is not shivved between here and there) could face added charges for an arrest back in 2017.  Boy, the radical left hates to let go, like a dog humping one’s pantleg.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice has charged five people for defrauding Medicare of $65 million over the back brace scheme we think everyone has heard at least one sales pitch on the phone at one time or another.  Good.  Send them to prison, those ads were annoying.  Finally, Jeffrey Epstein’s close associate and procurer Ghislaine Maxwell pleads NOT guilty to loads more charges of sex trafficking.
  84. 2021 Saturday N: State News– Former Trump associate Mike Egan is running for the Texas 6th congressional district seat in a special election next month.   Elsewhere, Alabama passes a law that will allow student athletes to profit off their images and likenesses.   Next, Montana Governor Greg Gianforte, Republican, signed a bill that NULLIFIES all restrictions on guns.  However, the Kansas Governor Laura Kelly, Democrat, vetoed a bill that would lower the age for concealed carry firearm permits to 18.  That one is okay unless of course the individual is in law enforcement or the U.S. military.   Meanwhile, Congressman Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, shared an update with his voters about his remaining eye’s condition.  He hopes to have vision restored and for him to be back on the job.
  85. 2021 Saturday O: Stupid News Of The Day– In crazy news of the day, the fossilized mummy Joe Biden says, ‘MORE troops are heading to Afghanistan even though he claims- we repeat, CLAIMS- U.S. troops are coming home on September 11, 2021.’  Wow.  These people simply do not want to leave the flipping country.  Let the Chi-Coms have ‘em.   Meanwhile, as the Chi-Vi pandemic ebbs and flows, toilet paper prices are beginning to return to normal and supplies are hitting all-time highs.   In other STUPID news, an unnamed member of the Biden regime claims that U.S. sanctions on Russia are having their desired effect because the Russians ‘went home.’  Don’t count on it…next, Portland, Oregon, declare yet another riot after Antifa burns down a Boys & Girls Club.  When are you going to start shooting these scumbags?  A little bit of lead will stop the rioting like that.  BOOM!
  86. 2021 Saturday P: Miscellaneous News I– Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO-LA, says, ‘the GOP infrastructure bill will provide more for less.’  Next, Representative Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district says that Joe Biden’s ‘New Deal’ hurts poor people the most.  Next conservative icon Ari Hoffman is taking over the helm at Seattle’s KVI radio station.   Moving on, George P. Bush is eyeing primarying Texas AG Ken Paxton.  Please- NO MORE BUSHES!  Enough with the Bush Family.   George P. Bush also says, ‘Texas is pushing back hard against the Biden regime’s orders.’  Wow.  Next, Congressman Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district says that the Dems have exposed their agenda by trying to make Washington, D.C. into the 51st state.’  Amen.
  87. 2021 Saturday Q: California Lottery Results– First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3554 with a $40 million jackpot on the line: 12, 14, 17, 22, 24, and Mega 13.  Out of 135,535 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but not the Mega for a prize of $43,202.  The winning ticket was sold at the Shell in Carmel, CA 93923.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #840 with a $104 million jackpot up for grabs: 22, 36, 48, 59, 61, and Powerball 22.   Out of 135,535 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but not the Mega for a prize of $43,202.  The winning ticket was sold at the Shell in Carmel, CA 93923.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,038 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 204,283 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 459 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

[i] We promoted the music of the world-famous Creedence Clearwater Revival beginning on Saturday, 16-November-2013 through Saturday, 07-December-2013.  Being the inattentive morons that we were back then, we neglected to promote the music of the band’s individual members.  We hope to do this one day so folks, keep vigilant for the day when we do.

[ii] We hope to promote the music of the Electric Prunes within the next 5-10 years.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of Blondie within the next 7-8 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  68. 2016 Monday: In war-torn Yemen, a U.N.-backed ceasefire goes into effect between Saudi Arabia and Iranian-backed Houthi rebels.  Elsewhere, Goldman Sachs, seen as one of the big causes of the 2008 fiscal crisis that conveniently helped Barack Hussein Obama win the White House reached a settlement with the federal government for having sold ‘derivatives,’ packages of mortgages that contained numerous dogs which when everything went to hell took the entire economy down with it.  Anyhow, Goldman Sachs agreed to pay $5.06 billion to settle all claims.

  70. 2018 Wednesday: The Palestinians are upset that Israeli troops and a sniper who took out a Hamas thug got off without being in trouble.  Thus, they set off a bomb near some Israeli construction equipment which then leads the Israeli Defense Forces to light up some Hamas positions in the Gaza Strip.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   Meanwhile, other trouble-makers in the region- the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels- launch some rockets into Saudi Arabia one of which shows up in the skies over Riyadh but is taken down by Saudi air force jets.
  71. 2019 Thursday: Today, things ended for Julian Assange as British police forcibly removed him from the Ecuadoran embassy in London.   The United States wants him extradited so he can stand charges for his role in Wikileaks releasing loads of secret Iraq war documents.  Elsewhere, the son of a local sheriff in the great state of Louisiana undergoes arrest for having committed several acts of arson against historically black churches in the state.  Holden Matthews would eventually receive a sentence of 25 years in a federal prison with hate crimes attached.  POS.

  85. 2022 Monday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.763 per gallon, $4.072 in Florida, $5.228 in Hawaii, and $4.680 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: District of Columbia- $4.237.  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 13th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Egypt: $1.971 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,378,296,809,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  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 Thailand the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Germany.  This nation holds $75,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  86. 2022 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian troops operating in Ukraine have been nominated for ‘Darwin Awards’ over the idiots removing ‘radioactive souvenirs’ from the Chernobyl power plant in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, Ukrainian military authorities are alleging the Russians have used drones with which to disperse chemical weapons in the beleaguered port city of Mariupol.  Civilian and military authorities are awaiting independent confirmation that the Russians did indeed use chemical weapons.  Speaking of such barbarism, a Chechen leader says that Russian President Vladimir Putin should indeed use tactical nuclear weapons to subdue the Ukrainians.  Still, Moscow claims they have eradicated all of Ukraine’s S-300 missile systems.
  87. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says ‘Russia will not suspend its military operations in Ukraine even as ‘peace talks’ between the two countries are underway.   Meanwhile, although the Russians claim otherwise, the mayor of Mariupol says that at least 10,000 civilians have died during the siege and that when the siege is lifted, the true numbers of dead civilians could double that.  How is it the United Nations is not raising troops from member countries and forcing Russia to stop its malevolent actions in a peaceful country?
  88. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris- California’s shame- has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster for the past 374 days and worse, she has not shown up to do more than a couple hours’ worth of work in 288 days.  What has the country done to deserve a vice president such as her?  Okay, we do our best to continue computing the true costs of illegal immigration on America, the same way that One America News did prior to Direct TV removing them from their list of channels.  Perhaps because we continue promoting the honest-to-God numbers to the best of our abilities, perhaps this is why we find ourselves under assault from some of the biggest search engines.  It is what it is.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders since January 01, 2022, is $642,844,149.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since the undynamic duo took their oaths with which they swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution is $42,388,919,892.  The number of illegals we estimate to have crossed the border since January 20, 2021, is 1,026,488.  Fourth and final, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 45,401,750.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is the prime reason our country is in a state of economic malaise (not to mention liberal policies).[xxvi] (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  92. 2022 Monday L: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $23.55 (2) Beyond Meat: $43.96  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $67.86.
  93. 2022 Monday M: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News– (1) Wal-Mart: $154.33 (2) Lowe’s: $204.75 (3) Home Depot: $306.89 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $584.67 (5) Amazon: $3,022.44.
  94. 2022 Monday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The White House is preparing for ‘extraordinarily-elevated CPI numbers,’ numbers that are sure to lead massive losses in House and Senate seats in November.  Next, the administration nominates a new commander to lead NATO forward.  Meanwhile, even as COVID-19 numbers continue tanking, the Biden administration is seeking a resumption of forcing EVERY federal worker or contractor to undergo forced vaccination with one of the COVID-19 vaccines.
  95. 2022 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– Although President Joe Biden is going to continue forcing all federal workers to undergo vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccines- and although Dr. Anthony Fauci continues saying the American people are going to have to learn to live with this foul disease, the Pentagon is moving onto the next pandemic, whatever it might be.
  96. 2022 Monday P: Political News I– Law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania arrested an elderly man who was sticking “I DID THAT” stickers onto gasoline pumps.  The stickers featured President Joseph R. Biden pointing to the exorbitant cost of the gas pumped.  Other hilarious stickers featured the nation’s vice president, quoted as saying, “I HELPED.”  While we recognize gas station owners must peel the stickers off- sometimes with difficulty- one cannot sidestep the fact that energy costs are sky high, and that the Biden-Harris administration bears COMPLETE responsibility and not Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.
  97. 2022 Monday Q: Political News II– Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson blasted the White House and its stance on gender affirming/gender reassignment surgeries.  Of course, the White House is a big proponent of life-altering gender surgeries which seems rather devilish to many.  Next, famed economist Peter Navarro says that a ‘perfect storm’ of stagflation is heading our way.   In other news, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush says, ‘it’s right for Governor Greg Abbott to send illegal aliens- what the left euphemistically labels as ‘undocumented migrants- to Washington, D.C., and to other ‘sanctuary locales.’  Finally, in other news Democrat locales would be wise to emulate, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill this morning with which to bolster fatherhood programs across the Sunshine State.
  98. 2022 Monday R: Political News III– Stacey Abrams-backed election law in the Peach State is going to trial.   Meanwhile, in Iowa, a hubbub continues following last night’s ruling by a judge in the state that won’t permit Senator Chuck Grassley’s struggling Democratic challenger- Abby Finkenauer to appear on the state’s Democratic Party primary ballot.  To qualify for the primary ballot, a candidate must have 100 signatures- or more- each from 19 counties to make the grade.  Although the Finkenauer campaign submitted more than 3,500 signatures, she did not get the necessary number to face off against Senator Grassley.  C’ est la vie.  Of the signatures, questions swirled around three of them from two counties.  Go figure.  Stop registering illegal aliens.
  99. 2022 Monday S: Political News IV– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says the White House is being mum on its plans with which to shove portions of the Build Back Better plan through to fruition.  We can only speculate what other evil crap the administration is attempting to insert into this doomed-to-fail bill.  Election Day is fast approaching and contrary to what many progressives are trumpeting, not every Democrat wants to lose his or her seat supporting this crumbling ‘signature package.’
  100. 2022 Monday T: Second Amendment News– The National Rifle Association has slammed President Joseph R. Biden’s new executive orders on the evil ‘ghost guns.’  Since before the founding of the country, Americans have made their own firearms and ammunition and even though President Biden believes he has a winner with this issue, Americans will continue making their own guns and crafting their own ammunition.  It is what free people in a free country do.  We are not communist China yet nor if older Americans continue defending freedom from the new generation of indoctrinated losers, we will continue doing this until the day we die.
  101. 2022 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #974 with a jackpot of $85 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 24, 31, 34, and Power 04.  Out of 62,911 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $33,732.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every artist releases a ‘20th Century Masters,’ i.e., best of compilation, and Robbie Robertson is no different.  We have a collection of the guitarist’s most beloved tunes all in one place so what do you have to lose?  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

93. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 03, 2022

2009 Friday: The economy continues to crash and burn in the United States as another 663,000 jobs fall by the wayside thanks to the Dems having engineered the housing crisis so as to get a Democrat elected in 2008. Unemployment rate goes up to 8.5-percent which is not good, nor will it improve by much over the subsequent seven-plus years.

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

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 228

93. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, APRIL 03, 2022:

U.S. Attorney General J. Howard McGrath; Acting U.S. Treasury Secretary Frank N. Newman; heavyweight boxing champion of the world James “Bonecrusher” Smith; the Band featuring Richard Manuel, Lynyrd Skynyrd featuring Bob Burns, Manfred Mann’s Earth Band featuring Matt Irving, the Spencer Davis Group featuring Dee Murray, and solo artist, Richard Thompson:

  1. 125 Tuesday: St. Sixtus I- the seventh Roman Catholic Pope- ended his time as pontiff on this date.  He first became the Vicar of Christ on May 03, 115, and guided his earthly flock until today.  His replacement- the 8th Roman Catholic Pope- St. Telesphorous- picked up his Holy Cross on this date and carried it until January 05, 136.
  2. 419 Wednesday: The 41.1st Roman Catholic Antipope Eulalius ended his time as antipope on this date.  He first became pontiff in opposition to Pope Boniface I on December 27, 418.
  3. 1043 Monday: Edward the Confessor crowned king of England.
  4. 1513 Thursday: Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon landed in Florida, having sighted the landmass the previous day.  He claimed it for Spain.
  5. 1657 Tuesday: English Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell refuses crown.
  6. 1721 Thursday: Robert Walpole becomes Britain’s first lord of the treasury, making him the prime minister, although the Brits did not use that term officially until much later.
  7. 1776 Wednesday: George Washington receives an honorary Doctor of Laws degree from Harvard College.
  8. 1829 Friday: James Carrington patented the coffee mill on this date.
  9. 1860 Tuesday: The legendary Pony Express began service between St. Joseph, Missouri, and Sacramento, California; however, due to the advent of transcontinental telegraph, the service lasted for 18 months.
  10. 1865 Monday: Union forces occupied the Confederate capital of Richmond, Virginia.
  11. 1866 Tuesday: Rudolph Eckmeier and G. Osterheld patented a blocking and shaping machine for hats.
  12. 1868 Friday: A Hawaiian citizen surfs on highest wave ever; he rides a 50′ tidal wave.
  13. 1882 Monday: Robert Ford, a member of the James Gang, shot outlaw, Jesse James to death in St. Joseph, Missouri, to collect a $5,000 reward.  Over the years, a controversy arose as many claimed the outlaw did not die but was still alive.
  14. 1910 Sunday: Mountaineers conquer the highest mountain in North America, Alaska’s Mt. McKinley.
  15. 1915 Saturday: The Austro-Hungarians with German reinforcements begin driving the Russians back in the Carpathians.   The Russians had a unique plan that if they could penetrate through this harsh range of mountains, they might be able to knock the Hapsburgs out of the war.  Although not the strongest member of the Central Powers, the core Austrian, and Hungarian troops and not their Slavic allies were up to the task.
  16. 1916 Monday: During World War I, the horrendous battle of Verdun continues as the French mount counterattacks against recent German domains.  The city of Verdun is a fortress surrounded by a series of fortresses (sort of like Dien Bien Phu would be decades later though not as fortified) and the Germans believe if they can punch through, they might be able to bring France to its knees, possibly knock her out of the war for good.
  17. 1917 Tuesday: Arriving in Petrograd on a closed train from Switzerland, Bolshevik revolutionary Vladimir Ilyich Lenin finally arrives home.  He will soon be up to no good.  Meanwhile, World War I continues on all fronts with heavy fighting on both Western and Eastern Fronts as well as in Africa as the Allies attempt to crush the German Colonial Army in East Africa.  No matter how many times the Brits, South Africans, and now the Portuguese think they have their quarry contained, the Germans are always able to break through the encirclement.
  18. 1918 Wednesday: German troops commence landing in Finland to help their new ally as the Russian Civil War rages between White and Red forces.  Other Allied units are considering landing in eastern and norther regions to help White forces crush the Bolsheviks.  It is becoming a horrible mess.  In Austria, government officials report having received peace feelers from France.
  19. 1919 Thursday: The victorious allies hammering out the post-World War I peace in Paris, France, had sent South African General Jan Smuts to Budapest where a new Soviet-style regime had seized power.  The idea was to negotiate a peace between east and west, but it was failure, the communists had no intention of participating in anything.  All Western diplomatic missions begin pulling out and American wives of Hungarian citizens are to leave with the British.  Things are in an uproar in Eastern Europe thanks to the NEW Soviet Union.  
  20. 1922 Monday: In the USSR, Josef Stalin becomes general secretary of the Communist Party.  Lenin, suffering from poor health did not want to appoint his far more murderous comrade Stalin to this post but Stalin was ‘caretaker’ for the ailing revolutionary.  Soon, Stalin would begin consolidating his power.
  21. 1925 Friday: Great Britain returns to the Gold Standard.
  22. 1930 Thursday: The 2nd Annual Academy Awards takes place on this date and is broadcast on radio for the first time.  Best Picture goes to “The Broadway Melody;” Best Actor goes to Warner Baxter and Best Actress goes to Mary Pickford.  Congratulations!
  23. 1933 Monday: First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt informed newspaper reporters that the White House would serve beer.  This statement followed the March 22 legislation that legalized ‘3.2’ beer.
  24. 1936 Friday: In Trenton, New Jersey, Bruno Hauptmann went to the electric chair on this date for the kidnap-murder of the Lindbergh baby.
  25. 1940 Wednesday: Aware that Nazi Germany is planning a strike on Denmark and Norway, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill wants to preempt it by landing British troops in Norway even though the Norwegians are not asking for help.
  26. 1941 Thursday: Based on intelligence, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill warns Josef Stalin of the impending German invasion of the Soviet Union; however, Stalin does NOT act on it.  Meanwhile, Rasjid al-Gailani forms pro-German regime in Iraq.  Soon, they will be doing their utmost to drive the British occupiers out of their country- or so they think.  Elsewhere, British troops roll into the capital of Eritrea in hot pursuit of the Fascist Italians.

  75. 2021 Saturday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will drive taxes way up while sending more American jobs overseas for good as well as lowering wages and minimizing benefits.’  Congressman Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, says that ‘most people support infrastructure but there is so much crap stuffed into the bill such as making ‘school lunches green’ that it’s a mess on steroids.  Next, President Donald J. Trump says that the (bogus) allegations launched against Congressman Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district could be a ‘smear job.’[ix]
  76. 2021 Saturday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS V– After Joe Biden lectured the American people as to HOW MANY people they could have in their homes on Easter Sunday, he now is taking incoming fire from the very same American people for his plans to have the entire Biden Clan- every single crooked one of them- in a big family get-together at Camp David.  There you go: liberal hypocrisy on display.  Next, there are rumors that the two underage skanks that murdered the Uber Eats driver earlier this week in Washington, D.C., and showed absolutely NO remorse are going to get a plea deal.  Lock the slut bags up.   Next, rapper DMX is in the hospital following a drug-induced heart attack.  Fine upstanding member of the community to be sure.  Finally, a North Carolina house party gone wild occurred early this morning when 3 people were shot dead, 4 wounded, and the rest in the wind.  How many mass shootings have now occurred under the Biden regime?

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

[iii] We will be presenting Elton John’s music at some point within the next five years.  Please stay tuned for the day when we do.

[iv] Not clear as to when we present the music of the Fairport Convention and of Richard Thompson, their famed guitarist but we sure as heck hope we do within the next decade.

[v] See previous.

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

[vii] 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.

[viii] Coincidentally the congressional district represented by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

[ix] The Democrats ALWAYS tip their hands as to whom they fear by the bogus allegations they launch at their targets.  Anyone remember former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin?  The Democrats did EVERYTHING they could to destroy her, so terrified of her were they.

One officer- William Evans- died in the event as did the suspect when he leapt from his smoking car with a machete and was shot dead for his troubles. It’s sad for the Left as we are sure they would have taken great delight in identifying the dead perp as a member of the Trump inner circle when in reality, it was one of the Left’s countless tools.

  62. 2011 Saturday: With the Arab Spring underway, the North Korean government decides that it had better crackdown on computers and other electronics that could broadcast news of what is going on elsewhere around the world thus causing problems for their brand of crackpot communism.  Anyone with unsanctioned devices, well, three generations of their family will end up in the gulags.

  65. 2014 Wednesday: In the United States, the National Security Agency—aka the NSA—announces that it has been using a legal loophole by which, it monitors, collects, and stores millions of phone records and emails of the American people.  Thank you, President Obama, for authorizing this outrage!  Meanwhile, the United States Supreme Court ruled that limits on the total amount of money individuals can give political candidates and political action committees were unconstitutional.  Elsewhere, Fort Hood reports a shooting on the base.
  66. 2015 Thursday: After being lost at sea for 66 days, rescuers find 37-year-old South Carolina man, Louis Jordan.  He had gone sailing in an antique sailing boat, which capsized and to which, he clung.  He survived on rainwater and fish he managed to catch while being adrift.  Elsewhere, at the Garissa University in Kenya, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, kill 140 people and wound countless others.  Worthless scumbags.
  67. 2016 Saturday: As the migrant crisis continues to ravage Europe (thanks to Germany’s Angela Merkel welcoming illegal immigrants to labor in the Fatherland’s factories), Austria says, ‘enough is enough’ and tells Italy that they are going to deploy troops on their mutual border because they don’t want any more Muslim migrants and refugees tramping through their country from their southern neighbor.  Who can blame them?   They intend to put troops in the Brenner Pass.  Just like World War I, Austrian and Italian friction.  Some issues never mend…
  68. 2017 Sunday: A custodian and several confederates at the Muslim shrine at Sargodha, Pakistan, takes the lives of 20 and leaves numerous others injured.  Thank you, “religion of peace.”  Elsewhere, media is under attack in Mexico and in Ciudad Juarez, the fabled newspaper Norte, publishes its final print edition seeing as how things are flipping crazy in that part of the country.
  69. 2018 Monday: In the 80th NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Game, Villanova whips Michigan 79-62.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump lambastes the Chi-Coms for possessing the chutzpah to put retaliatory tariffs of up to 25-percent on 128 American products including American wines and pork products.  This is in response to the U.S. having slapped tariffs onto Chinese imports of both steel and aluminum, two poorly made Chi-Com products they have habitually dumped into the U.S. sans any blowback- until now.
  70. 2019 Tuesday: Climatologists claim that Canada is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, increasing 2.3% in the northern environs of the country.  Green New Deal lovers are dancing in the streets at the news.  Meanwhile, NASA lays out plans to return to the moon in 2024 and to put astronauts on Martian soil by 2033.  Meanwhile, Google +, a highly popular social media app (although Google says different) begins deleting its user accounts.  People had wonderful sites in perhaps one of the best social media platforms but Google- since they blew the 2016 Presidential Election notified its users in late 2018 that it was going to shut down the site due to low user activity and vulnerabilities that- if we are to believe them- were too difficult to fix.  They were too LAZY to fix them IF they existed.  Google shut down nothing else…scumbags.[viii]  
  71. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19 continues running amok around the world.  The Democratic Party has postponed its 2020 Convention until mid-August with the GOP following them on August 24 through the 27th.   In the United States, we currently have 226,300 confirmed cases with many more to be sure plus about 5,300 confirmed deaths.  The Guardian claims there are more than 750,000 confirmed cases worldwide with the death toll skyrocketing to over 36,000.  Unemployment numbers for the previous week double the prior week by coming in at 6.6 million new unemployment claims.  Some economists project as many as 20 million additional unemployed by the time we hit May.  Cloward and Piven would be delighted.  Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces he will go back to the well in China so he can buy some of their top-of-the-line ventilators.  Does no one ever learn?  Food banks in the United States report a 92% jump in people seeking food thanks to the Wuhan Virus.   On a lighter note, Egypt reports a spike in ISIS attacks in the northern Sinai.  We say, “Crucify them!”
  72. 2021 Friday: TOP STORY OF THE DAY– An apparent member of the Nation of Islam- 25-year-old Noah Green- accelerated his vehicle into a barricade manned by Capitol Hill law enforcement on the U.S. Senate side of Constitution Avenue.  One officer- William Evans- died in the event as did the suspect when he leapt from his smoking car with a machete and was shot dead for his troubles.  It’s sad for the Left as we are sure they would have taken great delight in identifying the dead perp as a member of the Trump inner circle when in reality, it was one of the Left’s countless tool. The self-proclaimed ‘follower of Farrakhan’ has had his Facebook page ripped down from the Internet within 30 minutes.  Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, says it would be great if Joe Biden called for unity when (or if) he addresses this tragic event.  Still, we expect whatever portion of Fort Pelosi was removed last week will be redoubled this week with more calls for a U.S. infantry and armor division patrolling the Capital city of the United States.
  73. 2021 Friday A: JOE BIDEN NEWS– A mentally challenged Joe Biden held his first Cabinet meeting today and instead of celebrating the qualifications of its members as President Donald J. Trump did, he celebrates the diversity of its members. “It’s look like America,” crowed the president but can they do the job, Joe?  That is what we want to know.  Meanwhile, in a recent interview, Hunter Biden- the drug-addled family money-launderer says that the ‘controversial laptop could very well be his, he just doesn’t remember.’  Wow.  Next, Joe Biden (or the voice in his ear) asked his Education secretary if he has the legal right to forgive ALL federal student loan debt.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden says he’s going to hold indirect talks with Iran.  That ought to be good.  Finally, he has been in talks with the Ukraine- shaking them down again, there, Joe?
  74. 2021 Friday B: JOE BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Shocking videos showing cartel human traffickers tossing children under the age of 5 over the 14-foot-high border wall continue to emerge and still, the Biden administration will do nothing to prohibit the ongoing illegal alien invasion.  Even more distressing, illegal border crossings have risen to a 15-year-high and yet old Joe Biden sits in the basement playing pocket pool.  Yikes.   Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘Joe Biden could solve the border crisis by denying entry to all adult illegal aliens.’  Amen.  Even more shocking is that ONLY 33-percent of U.S. Hispanics believe that what Joe Biden is doing along the border is the ‘right thing.’  Next, Houston, Texas, the Drug Enforcement Agency reports a massive spike in fentanyl trafficking what with wide open borders.
  75. 2021 Friday C: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS– 2nd Amendment rights activists are calling for the prosecution of Hunter Biden over HIS lying on an FBI background gun check.  He said he did NOT use drugs on the form and folks, which is a felony.  What does it take to send this loser to prison?  Elsewhere, always belligerent Hillary Rodham Clinton says that the United States has a ‘gun worshipping problem.’
  76. 2021 Friday D: COVID-19 NEWS– As the White House continues seeking ways by which it can force vaccine passports onto the American people but NOT to force them being shown when one votes, propaganda continues to rise.  Oh, we need mandatory proof of one’s China Virus vaccination so one can participate in normal life but when it comes to protesting and voting, no proof of vaccination or even face masks is important.  A load of festering fecal matter, folks.  Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed an executive order today prohibiting any type of COVID-19 vaccination documentation.   Meanwhile, feeble old Joe Biden wants to vaccinate every frigging illegal alien as they pour into the country sans any kind of charge, yet another give-away for which, the American taxpayer will have to pay.  
  77. 2021 Friday E: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– A major rail catastrophe occurred in the Republic of China today- the free and independent Taiwan- when a speeding passenger train exiting a tunnel plowed into a truck that was somehow on the tracks and came off the tracks.  At least 50 people died in the accident with hundreds more injured.  Next, the U.S., Japan, and South Korea commence talks on North Korea.   Moving on, Russia hammers Twitter with a major fine for failing to remove tweets calling for Russian opposition protests.
  78. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– North Dakota declares a statewide emergency as raging wildfires threaten hundreds of homes thus forcing mass evacuations.   Next, the NYPD now allows the smoking of marijuana in public.   Moving on, today is Day 5 of the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Elsewhere, seven Texas police officers have been fired in the death of a black jail inmate.  Finally, the U.S. Army is investigating the theft of a National Guardsman’s rifle in Washington, D.C.
  79. 2021 Friday G: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS– the U.S. reportedly has added 916,000 new jobs and has brought unemployment down to 6-percent.  Still, millions of Americans remain on unemployment assistance due to the Chi-Vi but it’s a sign that things may be improving.   Meanwhile, Tesla reports that its 1st quarter production and delivery numbers far surpassed expectations.  Elsewhere, with the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga to Washington, D.C., the U.S., and Japan hope to solve a supply chain problem with the manufacturing of microchips.  Soon, two factories will be up and running in the American Southwest.
  80. 2021 Friday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey slams the Biden administration for the COVID-19 Porkulus Relief Bill that prohibits any state receiving ‘relief monies’ to offer its citizens tax cuts.  AG Morrissey calls this condition, “Unconstitutional.”  Meanwhile, actress Rose McGowan found herself suspended from Twitter after mocking the easily mockable ‘women’s empowerment summit’ held by former President Bill “Corndog” Clinton and “Kooky Kamala” “Sleep-Her-Way-to-the-Top” Harris.  Mocking this sham ‘summit’ as well as mentioning “Corndog” Clinton’s close ties to Jeffrey Epstein got her banned.  Elsewhere, security experts say that ‘Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure slush fund does nothing to combat cybersecurity threats faced by the United States.’  Thanks, Joe.
  81. 2021 Friday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– We knew it was inevitable, Major-League Baseball has stripped BOTH this year’s All-Star Game in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as the MLB draft because of the new voting law.  What a bunch of losers, NO more baseball for us.  Elsewhere, unrepentant communist Angela Davis tells a bunch of prep school students to dismantle capitalism, the system that has made her somewhat wealthy.  Next, Notre Dame’s rector says it will require 15-to-20 years to fully restore the fire-ravaged cathedral.
  82. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 129,761,772 confirmed cases, +729,489, 2,830,055  confirmed deaths, +11,814, and 73,546,720 confirmed recoveries, +348,535.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,731,414 confirmed cases, up 117,822 same as yesterday’s reporting, 558,213 confirmed deaths, UP 1,726, and 118,601,727 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix] 
  83. 2021 Friday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 231,003 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  FROZEN FIGURES TODAY…

  85. : FOREIGN OVERSEAS COVID-19 NUMBERS– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 833,456 confirmed cases, 6,220 confirmed deaths, and 820,703 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Lebanon, home of the world’s largest nonnuclear explosion: 471,962 cases of the virus, 9,286 confirmed deaths and 373,833 confirmed recoveries.[x]  You know, it’s been a while, is anyone curious as to what the figures are in COMMUNIST CHINA, the home of this diabolical, election-stealing viral s**t: the Chi-Coms claim to have 90,217 confirmed cases, same number of deaths for months now, 4,636, and 85,394 confirmed recoveries.  This is frigging embarrassing people.  Screw them.

  88. 2021 Friday P: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– A new report suggests that Twitter and Facebook employees donated exclusively to Democrats.  No surprise here, everyone knows this.  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken seeks Israel’s ‘mutual treatment of Palestinians.’  In Israel, Israeli Arabs live a life far better than the ones lived by their counterparts in the Gaza Strip.  Go figure.

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

  74. 2020 Saturday: The Chi-Com Bat Flu continues spreading around the world, affecting nations in the Mediterranean, in Southern Europe, Eastern Europe, across the Middle East, into Western Europe and Latin America.  In Japan, the authorities are arresting people for breaking their quarantines while in South America, the disease is popping up there.  The World Health Organization is slow to react because they are covering up for their masters in Beijing.
  75. 2021 Sunday: Members of the Biden administration visit the southern border to view (we believe to welcome in) illegal aliens swarming the border like a scene from the movie “World War Z,” (2013) a scene in which zombies are swarming up a wall in Israel. 
  76. 2021 Sunday A: As the ‘Biden administration’ continues bringing the U.S. into a Middle Eastern war, B-52s are flying across the Persian Gulf to strike fear into the hearts of Iranians.  Why we are flying B-52s is beyond us as far too many were shot down in the Vietnam War.  Here we are a half-century later flying the same aircraft, designed in the 1950s, while air defenses of all weaponry have become ‘smart.’  If the B-52s were to go into action over Iran, they would be easy pickings.   Joe- don’t get the U.S. into a war to defend gay rights and women’s rights in nations that will never respect them.   Speaking of the military, the Pentagon is reviewing a request to keep National Guard troops in Washington, D.C., for another TWO months.
  77. 2021 Sunday B: President Donald J. Trump announces he is going to go to Alaska so he can campaign against RINO Senator Lisa Murkowski.  We would love to see former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin primary Senator Murkowski.[x]   Speaking of President Trump, he lambastes various RINO Republican entities for misusing his brand in fund-raising efforts, especially when they continue supporting RINOs who voted for his impeachment.  He demands they cease and desist.  That means the Republican House and Senate Committees and we believe the Republican National Committee, too.  Until the GOP comes to grips with its RINO problems, no one is going to send another dime to any GOP PAC or Super Pac.  F**k them.
  78. 2021 Sunday C: In the U.S. Senate, the Republicans tried to block COVID-19 relief checks going to illegal aliens and other foreign citizens- as well as to people doing time in the hoosegow- but the Democrats blocked the GOP.   With the absence of Alaska Senator Dan Sullivan, Republican, away on family business, the Dems passed the COVID-19 ‘Relief Bill’ by a vote of 50-49.  We learn that at least 17 million Americans are ineligible to receive benefits while river-swimming illegals and the incarcerated will receive checks.  F**k them.   RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel says Joe Biden should concentrate on reopening schools rather than sending checks to people who don’t deserve them.
  79. 2021 Sunday D: In New York, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s woes continue to worsen what with two more women coming out and pointing the fingers of doom at this POS who thinks his fecal matter doesn’t stink.  The Albany Times says NOT only should “Killer Cuomo” go but the enablers who helped him get away with incalculable #MeToo crimes.[xi]   Speaking of Cuomo, the New York legislature has stripped the bum of his emergency rights.  NO more acting like a dictator.  We hope to see his brother, Chris the Pris, face his own #MeToo troubles what with his exceptionally close relationship with fellow CNN anchor Don Lemon, both of whom are reputed gropers.   Speaking of the Empire State, Donald Trump is planning his first visit to the Big Apple since leaving office.
  80. 2021 Sunday E:  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says the ‘Democratic agenda is the reshaping of America.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, a massive global hack breaches Microsoft business accounts.   Speaking of hacks, pressure applied by President Donald J. Trump and the U.S. has caused Huawei to lose loads of money outside the People’s Republic of China.  In other news, a Michigan state judge reinstates voting fraud cases with the state’s borders following a forensic probe of the corrupt Dominion Voting Systems equipment used in the state’s 2020 Presidential Election.  Ample evidence exists of the machines flipping votes for Donald Trump to Methuselah Biden.   Finally, the Tennessee legislature is proposing a bill that will allow the state to crack down on violent highway protesters, people who blocks roads and highways as well as stiffening the rights of citizens to defend their lives and property. 
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Governor Greg Abbot and the state of Texas is launching Operation Lone Star with which to fund, employ National Guard troops, and law enforcement officers in land, sea, and air operations to halt the tidal wave of illegal aliens trying to force their way into the country.  All power to Texas!  Let’s revive Operation Wetback and begin rounding up and removing illegal aliens everywhere we find them.  Meanwhile, Florida GOP Congressman Matt Gaetz blasts the Biden administration for holding NO press conferences and notes that it appears as though we are moving towards a “Harris administration.”  Amen.  Speaking of the Republican Party, it’s speaking out against the cancelation of news media outlets on the right by the left and Cancel Culture.
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 116,600,908 confirmed cases, +431,789, 2,589,638, confirmed deaths, +7,563, and 65,920,692 confirmed recoveries, +225,672.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,258,941 confirmed cases, up 65,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 529,527 confirmed deaths, UP 1,610, and 112,291,045 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 201,050 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.   Note- that stupid bi**h Jen “Circle Back” Psaki won’t credit President Trump’s Operation Warp Speed.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,596,488 confirmed cases, 54,124 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 444 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 347,301 confirmed cases, 5,107 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Idaho: currently, they have 173,011 confirmed cases, 1,882 confirmed deaths, and 96,017 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 799,727 confirmed cases, 5,856 confirmed deaths, and 753,081 confirmed recoveries.  Speaking of the Chi-Com lab-engineered biowarfare, anti-Trump Xi Jinping Bat Virus, AstraZeneca says that it’s planning to deliver roughly 50 million doses of the Chi-Vi Vax to Americans within the next two months.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Switzerland votes to ban face coverings in public.  Meanwhile, authorities report that the Russians have launched a disinformation campaign on the efficacy and safety of U.S. Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  F**k the Russians.  Elsewhere, a Uighur Muslim human rights group demands the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics be stripped from the Chi-Com regional power over their persecution of Uighurs and other minorities in the western portion of that backward country.  Finally, the U.S. and South Korea are preparing to hold limited military exercises beginning tomorrow and which will run for nine days.  North Korea promises to closely monitor them.  How about we END the Korean War?  What a novel idea!
  85. 2021 Sunday J: Senator John Barrasso, R-WY, blasts the Biden PORKULUS Relief Bill as nothing more than a ‘liberal wish list.’  Meanwhile, Representative Mike Gallagher, R-WI, is demanding that Joe Biden reconsider shutting down the Keystone XL Pipeline.  It’s time to open that sucker back up so Americans can enjoy cheap energy prices.  In other news, economist Stephen Moore says a good jobs report can get the U.S. economy going up like a rocket ship.  Next, Trump era student loan debt czar Mark A. Brown hands his resignation letter over to the Biden administration.    Finally, Newsmax asks an important question: is “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell planning to exit the world’s greatest deliberative body?  Probably going to relocate to the PRC so he can help his father-in-law run his shipping company.
  86. 2022 Monday:  Stick around…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band released its first ‘best of’ compilation, “The Best of the Band,” on July 15, 1976.  The group was having inner turmoil related to being together for far too long, having massive success and then a decline all within the span of about five years.  Thus, the record company said ‘it’s time to release a compilation’ so we can bring in some additional revenue so here we are.  Still, you have a glorious introduction to one of the most prolific groups of all time- yes, we said it, because the music and the attitude of this band influenced everyone from Eric Clapton to Dave Mason to loads of other similar-sounding groups- which is why if you have yet to get in on the ground floor, well, this is the perfect way in which you can do it.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music and add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended albums.  You can thank us later.

TODAY IN HISTORY, MONDAY MARCH 07, 2022, BLOG POST #4,474

PLEASE READ OUR MAIN BLOG POST, PUBLISHED AT 12:01 A.M.

Sunday, March 07, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…


Monday, March 07, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We shared the music of the famed Los Angeles, California, psychedelic rock band, Love, beginning on Wednesday, 24-October-2012 through Friday, 16-November-2012.  We hope you will check them out as they deserve to be heard.

[iii] We are unclear as to when we will begin promoting the music of the J. Geils’ Band but when we do, you will be the first to know.  We hope you remain attentive for the day when we do because they are one of the all-time great American rock bands.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[v] We are not sure when we will promote the music of Oakland’s Tower of Power, but you can be sure that we will do so when we begin promoting the music of funk-rock, horn-powered bands. 

[vi] Not sure when we present this Canadian rock band, Loverboy, but we sure as heck hope we do sometime within the next decade because- say what you will about them- they are as exciting today as they were back in the 1980s.  Please remain vigilant for the day that we do.

[vii] 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.

[viii] We began promoting the music of the Beatles and the band’s original members, beginning on Friday, 04-November-2016 which ran through Sunday, 11-June-2017. You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

[ix] Many believe Barack Obama should be disqualified as a president because most believe he was born outside the United States which would ban him from ever seeking the highest office in the land.  At the very least, an asterisk should be placed by his name in all U.S. history books.

[x] One of the reasons (among many) President Trump wants to end the service of Senator Murkowski is her support for Debra Haaland to become the next secretary of the Department of the Interior, a person who will cripple the 49th state’s energy and mineral production.  It’s time for Murkowski to go.

[xi] The amazing thing is NYC Mayor Bill Di Blasio smells chum in the water and is planning on launching a primary campaign to strip “Killer Cuomo” of the governorship and winning it for himself.  That is pretty bad when a loser like Di Blasio is in better shape than a boner like Cuomo.  Going to be fun to watch.

58. TODAY IN HISTORY—SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 2022

  62. 2021 Saturday A: In other California news, the California Supreme Court ends adult trials for teens under the age of 16.   In other fascinating news, the FBI confirms a report from February 21, 2021, one in which pilots aboard American Airlines Flight 2292 reported seeing a long, cylindrical, fast-moving object moving alongside and then above them.  U.S. military and aviation authorities said there was nothing in the New Mexican skies at the time of the report.  It proves yet again that UFO reports continue to increase which means, it could either be a “flap year” or it could be the beginning of something no one wants to see but which might unify the world: an off-world threat.
  63. 2021 Saturday B: Vice President Kamala Harris is NOT planning to overrule the Senate Parliamentarian’s decision NOT to allow inclusion of the $15 per hour minimum wage in the Chi-Vi relief bill the House Democrats manage to pass last night by a slim margin.   Critics claim that the ‘relief bill’ will resemble the Obama “Porkulus” back in 2009 that the Democrats used as a slush fund to fulfill campaign promises made to unions and other connected persons and companies while doing nothing for the average American.  What else is new? 
  64. 2021 Saturday C: Burmese cops in Myanmar launch a concerted effort across the troubled Southeast Asian nation in an effort to quell the ongoing protests that have disrupted the country since the military junta in charge launched a coup against the democratically elected leaders.   In other foreign news, reports declare it to be ‘official’- Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the ‘hit’ on Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Turkey back in 2018.

  66. 2021 Saturday E: NOTE- in the White House 39 DAYS, apparently the U.S. will NO longer report the number of recoveries.  Shame on you, Chi-Com Joe.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 186,629 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, talk is cheap, what are YOU going to do about it?  YOU are a worse murderer than Andrew “Killer” Cuomo is in the Empire State- he’s only killed 46,914 people, half of them in nursing homes.   Speaking of the Beijing Bat Bug, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine could soon go into action around the United States thanks to the FDA giving it emergency use approval.
  67. 2021 Saturday F: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,561,812 confirmed cases, 51,941 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 437 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 341,941 confirmed cases, 5,024 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the country: Utah.  Currently, they have 370,770 confirmed cases, 1,929 confirmed deaths, but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 773,261 confirmed cases, 5,726 confirmed deaths, and 727,779 confirmed recoveries.  For the heck of it, let’s look at one other country: Iran.  Currently, they have  1,623,159 confirmed cases, 59,980 confirmed deaths, and 1,386,534 confirmed recoveries. 
  68. 2021 Saturday G: At CPAC, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, applauds President Donald J. Trump for standing up for conservative beliefs and for continuing to stand up for conservative beliefs.  Meanwhile, as documents continue to appear, the American people are learning additional information on how the Federal Bureau of Investigation did everything it could to insinuate intelligence agents into the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.  Elsewhere, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey says his state is going to do everything it can to push back on the radical left-wing agenda the Biden-Harris administration is pushing such as the destruction of domestic energy production.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump endorses former aide Max Miller to primary RINO POS Congressman Anthony Gonzalez who voted for the second impeachment in 2022. 
  69. 2021 Saturday H: Leftists continue whining about ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden’s ‘reckless bombing’ of Iranian militants in eastern Syria earlier in the week.  Even far-left site, Salon blasts Biden for having carried out these airstrikes, saying this is not the foreign policy we expected.’  You stupid dolts!  Don’t you understand that President Donald J. Trump was trying to extricate the United States from wars around the world whereas we predict- pat attention to this- that by the end of the year, Joe Biden will have us in a raging war, just like Lyndon Baines Johnson upped the ante in Vietnam that we lost far too many soldiers.  LBJ promised he would pull the United States out of Southeast Asia.  What he gave them in return were more body bags coming home.  
  70. 2021 Saturday I: Here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3538 with a $24 million pot on the line: 03, 08, 22, 28, 34, and Mega 22.  Out of 108,946 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $38,895.  The winning ticket was sold in Chula Vista, CA, 91913 at a 7/11.   Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #824 with a jackpot of $85 million at stake: 02, 28, 31, 44, 52, and Powerball 18.   Out of 66,849 winning tickets, the highest winners were 34 people who had FOUR numbers but NO Powerball for a prize of $543 apiece.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next live effort by Fairport Convention was the wonderful “Off the Desk 2020” (April 26, 2021). As always, these musical veterans deliver a powerful live show that sees them draw millions of fans to their music year after year.  People hunger for the OLD music because much of the new music- ahem, like Maroon Five, the Jonas Brothers, and other twits SUCKS. The band features the quintet of Ric Sanders (violins), Dave Pegg (acoustic and electric basses, and tenor mandola), Simon Nichol (guitars and vocals), Gerry Conway (drums), and Chris Leslie (mandolins, fiddles, cellos, and flutes).  The two discs contain 22 classic tunes as only this veteran band can deliver which is why we encourage everyone to rush out to their favorite record shop and pick it up.  You will be glad you did, that we guarantee.

ENDNOTES:

[iii] 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.  This would include the music of .38-Special, too. 

[iv] We look forward to sharing the music of Pink Floyd- as well as the band’s members- sometime within the next 5-6 years.

[v] We shared the music of the Rolling Stones (and the group’s individual members) beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members solo projects.

56. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2022

2021 Thursday: Day 37 of the Biden Regime- Congressman James Panetta, D-CA 20th congressional district, and nearly two dozen other House Democrats are pushing decrepit ‘Old Joe’ Biden to give up sole authority to launch nukes should the need to do so arises. The Democrats want a cabal of the president, vice president, and House speaker to make the determination which will delay any response America might have against an impending nuclear attack. Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, says this is ‘weird.’

  62. 2019 Monday: Following an assault by Internet trolls and Bots attacking the movie, “Captain Marvel,” the film review site Rotten Tomatoes makes ways as to how fans can rate and comment on movies.  In Vietnam, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrives ahead of the upcoming summit between his country and President Donald J. Trump of the United States; he takes in the sights.  Elsewhere, peace talks between the U.S. and the Taliban begin in Qatar.
  63. 2020 Tuesday: President Trump returns from India and announces he has asked for $2.5 billion with which to combat the Coronavirus in the United States.  Senate Minority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says it’s ‘not enough.  Currently, there are 80,000 cases worldwide.  The president should have asked for more.’  Meanwhile, the Democratic 2020 Presidential Debates continue with Michael Bloomberg, Tom Steyer, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Joe Biden, and Mayor Pete.   
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: Italy is now beset by Chinese Virus cases as the ‘VID has infected nearly 100 more which drives their cases up to 322 what with a death toll of 11- and Italy told its citizens to be “WOKE” and go out and hug Chinese tourists.  Look at what it gets you- sick people and dead folks.  Austria and Croatia report their first cases of coronavirus while in Spain, tourists are being locked up in hotels to prohibit the spread of this disease.  In Iran as the outbreak continues to worsen, the country’s health minister tests positive for this evil disease. Switzerland, Algeria, and other nations around the world are taking the opportunity to seal off air travel to communist China such as Canada.  Meanwhile, the government of Sweden demands the Chi-Com ambassador meet with them over its sentencing of a Swedish bookseller in the PRC to a decade in the slammer for ‘espionage.’
  65. 2021 Thursday: Day 37 of the Biden Regime- Congressman James Panetta, D-CA 20th congressional district, and nearly two dozen other House Democrats are pushing decrepit ‘Old Joe’ Biden to give up sole authority to launch nukes should the need to do so arises.  The Democrats want a cabal of the president, vice president, and House speaker to make the determination which will delay any response America might have against an impending nuclear attack.  Utah Senator Mike Lee, Republican, says this is ‘weird.’  The question is, WHY?  Speaking of this lunacy, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, quipped, “I don’t think Joe Biden’s in charge.’  We concur.
  66. 2021 Thursday A: Newsmax’ White House correspondent John Gizzi says that Neera Tanden- Joe Biden’s pick to head the White House Office of Management and Budget is prepared to withdraw her confirmation seeing as how she’s receiving pushback from both Senate Republicans and Democrats.   Senator Chuck Grassley, R-IA, says he’s not voting for this skank.  Meanwhile, former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm by a vote of 64-35 is confirmed as the next U.S. secretary of Energy.   Confirming this Chi-Com lover gives Beijing and OPEC a big boost in their drive to monopolize energy as well as to collapse U.S. domestic energy production. 
  67. 2021 Thursday B: Conservative lawmakers are asking for a timeline as to when House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi plans on removing the fences around the White House and the Capitol Building as well as when National Guard troops will stop patrolling the streets of Washington, D.C.  The Democrats have transformed parts of the nation’s capital into a Baghdad-style “Green Zone,” of sorts, a heavily-fortified zone.  We believe the troops are there and the fences are up because the Dems KNOW they stole the 2020 Presidential Election.
  68. 2021 Thursday C: Black Lives Matter is launching a ‘survival fund’ of sorts with $3 million as the Democrats in Congress continue dragging out the COVID-19, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, relief fund.   House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has snarked ‘we feed them, Wolf (Blitzer), we feed them.  Do you feed them?” She was referring to ‘feeding’ the country’s impoverished and its illegal aliens.  We don’t want you to feed us, you senile old witch, we want the economy to reopen.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday D: Tony Perkins has told Newsmax TV the Dems want to force ALL Americans into participating in ABORTIONS by seeking to use taxpayer dollars to fund this abomination not just here in the United States but around the world.  In so doing, it taints the souls of everyone which is not right.  It’s time for Pope Francis to boot Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, and every other Catholic-in-Name-Only (CINO) from the church.  Excommunicate them, Pope Francis, excommunicate these murdering scumbags NOW.   In other liberal Democrat Party news, Congressman Sean Maloney, D-NY 18th congressional district, claims Democrats are supportive of socialism and that there are no socialist Democrats.  Good try.  Finally, people are flooding out of the woodwork now to accuse imploding New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, accusing him of sexual abuse, harassment, and mistreatment.  YOU reap what you sow, you POS!
  70. 2021 Thursday E: CPAC plans to honor Rush Limbaugh.  CPAC Chair Matt Schlapp says that President Donald J. Trump knows his speech this upcoming Sunday is an ‘important reset’ for his future in GOP politics.  Meanwhile, the GOP is pushing back on Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s call for a ‘riot commission’ to look into the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Pelosi wants to tar-and-feather Trump supporters with the riot engineered by the Democrats, but we are not going to permit them to get away with this outrageous behavior.
  71. 2021 Thursday F: In upcoming Summer Olympics news, the delayed Olympic torch relay is going to have fans, but NO cheering will be allowed.  Meanwhile, the IOC says that Brisbane, Australia, is the preferred site for the 2032 Summer Olympics. 
  72. 2021 Thursday G: The Justice Department’s top watchdog is investigating claims by a Boeing engineer of being surveilled by the FBI over claims the individual was spying for Beijing.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Joe Biden’s pick to be U.S. Trade Representative- Katherine Tai- says, ‘Chi-Coms both our rivals and our friends.’  Yet another pro-Chi-Com hack in the Biden administration.   In other news, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker signs into law a bill abolishing cash bail for ALL criminal defendants awaiting trial.  Wow.  Thugs are going to be running amok in the streets of the Windy City.  Oh, wait, thugs are already running amok there. 
  73. 2021 Thursday H: Vice President Kamala Harris is now encouraging black folks to rush out and get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We recall when YOU said NOT to get the vaccine, you know, before you became VP, so what’s up with the reversal?  Our very own Bea O’Malley has said, ‘any time white liberals tell black folks to do something for their own good, it never works out that way.’  Even though you aren’t white, Kamala, you may as well be seeing as how you lack the street creds of a legit black American.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, France says it’s going to impose ‘localized lockdowns on areas infected with the Chi-Com virus rather than lock down the entire country.’ 
  74. 2021 Thursday I: New York State prosecutors now have President Donald J. Trump’s tax records.  We suspect it’s going to be a DRY well.  Still, it’s going to be fun watching them twist, turn, and wet their pants as they try to get some dirt on President Donald J. Trump.  In other interesting news, five counties in Oregon want to secede from that crackpot state and join with Idaho.  We have a suggestion- how about reviving the drive to create the state of Jefferson?  That concept featured counties in Washington and Oregon east of the Cascades forming their own state with possibly a few of California’s northern counties.  People in these areas are deeply conservative whereas the coastal portions of those states are full of rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth lunatics.  Hell, the county of Kern in California should become its own state.
  75. 2021 Thursday J: This week, there were 737,000 new jobless claims which is down from the previous week.  GDP has been revised up although it equates with what the country had back in 1946 following World War II.  Meanwhile, the FCC auctions off 5G airwaves bringing in $81 billion with ATT and Verizon being the big winners.  Elsewhere, GameStop is making another run today.   In other economic news, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, blasts the ‘Joe Biden’ COVID-19 Relief Bill as being little more than a socialist wish list, something we contend is a Democratic-Socialist ‘wet dream.’
  76. 2022 Friday: Please, stick around for the latest news of the day…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album Fairport Convention released was the group’s next archival live album, “Evanston 1975- the Illinois Broadcast,” on July 21, 1974.  Recorded at a radio station, this was a glorious effort as it featured Sandy Denny back in the fold.   Besides Ms. Denny on vocals and piano, the band features (1) Dave Swarbrick (vocals, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, and violas) (2) Trevor Lucas (acoustic guitars and vocals) (3) Jerry Donahue (lead guitar and backing vocals) (4) Dave Pegg (vocals, basses, guitars) and (5) Dave Mattacks (drums, percussion, and piano).  Each song is unique, the overall sound ostentatious, and all we can say is that we wholly recommend this album to fans of both the blog and of the band.  We hope you will seek this one out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and then add it to your growing collection- you will be glad you did- we guarantee it.

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

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

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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