  60. 2020 Sunday: For the first time in 45 years, NASA and SpaceX conduct a successful water landing as the Dragon X crew capsule returns two American astronauts- Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley- to Earth after two months on the International Space Station.  No longer does the United States need to pay Vladimir Putin’s Russia $85 million a pop to send American astronauts into space which once again proves to the world that Donald Trump is not a Russian stooge. 
  61. 2020 Sunday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- The Beijing Bat Flu, the one Xi Jinping sent to the rest of the world, continues trashing the world as the escapee from the Wuhan Institute of Virology continues taking names and calling numbers.  Here are the stats for the globe for today: 17,852,451 confirmed cases, UP 257,910 cases, 679,794 confirmed deaths, UP 355, and 10,598,327 confirmed recoveries, UP 265,161.  In the United States, here are the stats for today: 4,740,401 confirmed cases, UP 54,187, 157,113 confirmed deaths, UP 743, and 2,304,851 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,623.  The question is, WHEN are the Chi-Coms going to pay the GIGANTIC PRICE for their crimes?

  63. 2020 Sunday C: Anxious liberals are awaiting the VP pick of former Vice President Joe Biden, expected sometime this upcoming week.  Many believe it’s going to be California Sen. Kamala Harris, a woman who has achieved every position through the alleged trading of sexual favors to achieve it.  Others think it might be the Pelosi favorite, California Rep. Karen Bass, a known fan of Fidel and Raul Castro.  Others think it might be noted ‘woman of color,’ Senator Liz Warren of Massachusetts while others ponder the pick as being Susan Rice, former National Security Advisor in the Obama administration.  Still others contend Joe Biden has no clue as to who it’s going to be and awaits notice from whomever is TRULY behind his campaign.  At one time, many of us believed it could be Michelle Obama as the top of the ticket but now, who knows- it might be angry loser Stacey Abrams.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 311,417 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 92,661 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $3.032.  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- Canada: $4.739 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,595,425,431071 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Mexico, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Kuwait with $47 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  70. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 132 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the calamity befalling the nation along the southern border and Day No. 38 since her one- and only- LOL (as she always does)- visit to the slowest sector in the entire region.  Every day, approximately 5,000-10,000 illegal aliens are crossing into the United States, the advance guard of an international occupation force.  As they belittle and vilify white people using the same tactics that fat toad, Hugo Chavez, employed in Venezuela to transform his country from the most prosperous nation in Latin America to the absolute worst one in less than a decade.  What Hugo did is what the Nazis did before him and that is to single out one group, isolate it, make them highly unpopular, destroy them, and appropriate everything they own.  We must resist and the frigging Republicans must wake the f**k up.
  71. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Even though a federal judge ordered an end to the DACA program, The USCIS- the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services is acting as though the judge’s ruling means nothing.  IF President Trump had told a judge to buzz off, he would be impeached yet again, yet that senile fool Joe Biden will get away with everything until his use to his handlers ends.  Ah, well, One America News presents the current numbers of the Biden Border Debacle as follows: first, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $509,880,896.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for all the illegal aliens: $233,934,602,240.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens who have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,397,642.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers for the illegal aliens estimated to be in the country as you read this: 36,397,646.  We have said since the blog’s inception that back in 2009, the numbers were around 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million and this is not good, not good at all.  We must round them up, imprison them in Joe Arpaio-style tent prisons in the desert making them work, then load them onto all available transports and deport them back to whence the f**k they came.
  72. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I- We learned today that the Chi-Coms are openly boasting that the Biden regime could not stop them from launching an amphibious and airborne invasion of Taiwan.  The U.S. Navy has been drawing ire over its emphasis on WOKE POLITICS rather than preparing for warfighting.  (Note- we have said this before and will say it again: the Chi-Coms although most likely ultimately victorious in invading Taiwan will suffer losses the likes of which, they cannot comprehend.  Look what the badly outnumbered U.S. Marines did to the Imperial Japanese when the latter invaded Wake Island shortly after Pearl Harbor.  The Taiwanese people are FREE people, and the Chi-Coms are communists, and the FREE people will fight to the bitter end.  We expect the Chi-Coms could easily lose 2-5 million people in the invasion, in the surrounding waters, and in the air.  Sure, a drop in the bucket for them but the global embarrassment would be humiliating to the country that wants to rule both the world and the near Solar System.  What?  Are they planning on building gulags on the moon and Mars?).
  73. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– (Former) Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe says that the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing should be yanked from that country due to them letting loose the Xi Jinping Bat Flu across the world just as they also covered it up to the best of their abilities.  A new report compiled by the GOP proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that Xi Jinping’s namesake virus was allowed to leak from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 2nd CD, says there’s NO WAY that Joe Biden will go after Beijing for the crimes they’ve committed.   Meanwhile, a new poll from Rasmussen says that a majority of (brain dead) Dems want mask mandates reinstituted.’  What a swarm of ants.  One of the ants- New York City Mayor Bill “Bag O’ Fries” Di Blasio says HE won’t be reinstituting mask mandates.  The dog dingus is trying to get people to return to the Big Apple.
  74. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Biden regime is thrashing around like U.S. Olympian Raven Saunders when she was twerking on the sidelines at the Tokyo Olympic Games this past weekend: since the Centers for Disease Control cannot stop the eviction moratorium, mouthpieces are urging sympathetic states to continue the moratorium.  (Note- look- furloughed and/or unemployed workers were getting an extra $300 per week or $1,200 per month.  WTF weren’t they paying their rent?  Landlords have bills, too, for Christ’s Sake!)  Meanwhile, Rep. Doug LaMalfa, R-CA 1st CD, says that the GOP is going to have to develop its own COVID-19 protocols.  Next, fully vaccinated Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is being treated for a mild case of the Chi-Vi.  In other Xi Jinping Bat Flu news, Governor John Bel Edwards, DS-LA, is ordering a new round of INDOOR mask mandates.  Oh, boy.
  75. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Attorney General Mark Brnovich, R-AZ, says that the Democrats and far-left rabble rousers have been abusing the elections systems for years, if not decades.   Meanwhile, nearly 60 House Republicans ask a judge to toss the Department of Justice lawsuit against the State of Georgia over its new voting laws onto the scrap heap of history.  It is a bogus lawsuit filed by a fraudulent Department of Justice.
  76. 2021 Monday K: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump’s attorney said the recent order by U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland directed to the Internal Revenue Service to hand over his client’s tax returns to Congress for yet another ‘shit show’ in the House is both ‘harassment and outrageous.’  Meanwhile, Eli Lake says there’s still time for Joe Biden to ditch the crackpot idea of returning to the Iran nuclear deal talks.  We hope Joe listens, but we know he won’t. 
  77. 2021 Monday M: Political News II– Saturday Night Live cast member Michael Che was forced to scrub his social media accounts after making hateful jokes about gymnast Simone Biles.  Had he made them about a conservative, everything would be fine, but he made them about America’s favorite gymnast and here is what the bozo said: “Larry Nasser [sic] understands Simone Biles better than anyone.  He, too, had to quit doing what he loved at the pinnacle of his career because of mounting pressures.”  Elsewhere, ‘Cho-Mo’ Senator Bob Menendez, DS-NJ, and 10 European counterparts are openly condemning Joe Biden’s Nord Stream 2 ‘deal’ with Vladimir Putin. 
  78. 2021 Monday N: Political News III– Okay, here is some of what is included in the ‘bipartisan infrastructure bill’- $66 billion for railways, $658 billion to expand broadband internet access, $55 billion on clean water projects like getting rid of lead pipes, and $7.5 billion for electric vehicle charging stations.  Here is more of what is in the bill: $2.5 billion on welcome centers for migrants (we suggest minefields), $1 billion for the commission being chaired by Senator Joe Manchin’s wife (nothing like spreading a billion dollars around to buy votes), and money being doled out to various groups will be doled out by RACE and ‘gender identity’ will be recognized as a protected class- what does this have to do with frigging infrastructure?
  79. 2021 Monday O: Mass Shootings News– Over the weekend in Chicago, a long-time Democrat-controlled hellhole, 50 people were shot and five were killed.  Just another weekend in the Windy City but the body count was less than normal.
  80. 2022 Tuesday: Much talk about communist China lighting up Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi should she fly into Taiwan which we find absolutely humorous.  Shoot her down, no one would miss her.  On the serious side, IF the Chi-Coms intend to invade Taiwan- the legitimate China, the REAL China, the rightful owner of the mainland- the Chi-Coms must cross almost 100 miles of open water, dangerous water, perilous water.  Adolf Hitler was stymied by the 20 miles of the English Channel in 1940 and therefore never invaded Great Britain.  Do the Chi-Coms possess the balls to invade Taiwan?  The best way to thwart an invasion fleet is to launch drone swarms in the hundreds of thousands, perhaps in the millions.  Each drone would carry explosives and would swamp the fleet.  They would slash through the bridge windows, down the smokestack funnels and into the engine rooms, into the barrels of the deck guns, into the engines of jet aircraft waiting to launch, while underseas drones would dump mines all around the Chi-Com navy’s vessels.  The devastation would be tremendous, vast numbers of ships, men and materiel sent to the bottom in an instant.  Of course, undeclared nuclear power Taiwan could drop a BIG ONE smack dab in the midst of the invasion fleet.  Problem solved in a second.  It will be interesting to see…Chef Hector Santanamos “El Chilote” De Soto.

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

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

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

  66. 2019 Tuesday:  In Great Britain, the ruling Conservative Party MPs select Boris Johnson to be the new prime minister replacing the disastrous Theresa May who could- or would- not get her country through Brexit.   Meanwhile, thanks to comedian Jon Stewart, the U.S. Senate passes a bill that will forever fund the 9-11 first responders’ fund.  Elsewhere, Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Richard V. Spencer left his job on this date.   A member of no professed political party, Spencer served under President Donald J. Trump from July 15, 2019, until today.  His successor, the 27th U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper assumed his post on this date.  He served under the 45th president until President Donald J.

  69. 2020 Thursday B: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,652.33, DOWN 353.51 points (-1.31%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,461.42, DOWN 244.71 points (-2.29%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,235.66, DOWN 40.36 points (-1.23%).  Price of GOLD: $1,887.10 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.15%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $22.86 per troy oz., -0.123 (-0.54%).  Price of PLATINUM: $956.60 per troy oz., -7.20 (-0.75%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.92 per #, -0.016 (-0.54%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.17, +0.10 (+0.24%).  The markets were down because for the first time since the pandemic from communist China hit back in March, unemployment numbers rose to 1.4 million new claims bringing the number of unemployed Americans to around 32 million.
  70. 2020 Thursday C: Today is the 56th straight day of rioting and protests in the city of Portland, Oregon.  Mayor Ted Wheeler, Democrat, says federal law enforcement is responsible for the rioting when in truth, it’s the ambivalence of the mayor and his city council that bears full responsibility for the mayhem occurring in those once beautiful city’s streets.  The previous night, in a despicable act of virtue-signaling, the mayor went out on the streets to participate in the riots and the agitators threw garbage at him and told him to resign.  He suffered two bouts of teargassing before his security people removed him from the streets to safety.   Arrest the mayor, mow down the Antifa thugs.  Bring sanity back NOW!  Meanwhile, national polling averages give “Pro-China Joe” Biden a 15-point lead over President Donald J. Trump.  According to Democrats, Trump is ‘toast’ and might as well resign and go home NOW.
  71. 2020 Thursday D: On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka the Fly, Democratic-Socialist, blubbered about comments made by Florida GOP Rep. Ted Yoho in which he called the dingbat far-left socialist a “F**king bitch.”  Well, she is a F**king Bitch and needs to be beaten in November.
  72. 2021 Friday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 193,839,633 confirmed cases, +473,584, 4,157,261 confirmed deaths, +6,613 and 175,978,128 confirmed recoveries, +273,982.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,269,664 confirmed cases, UP 51,070 from yesterday’s reporting, 626,586 confirmed deaths, UP 414, [vii] and 29,478,173 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,646.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [viii]  
  73. 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 308,144 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 95,934 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[ix]

[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000030.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.     In Daish Krone, one greenback equals 6.32 and in Djiboutian Franc, a buck equal 177.50 and in Dominican Peso, one dollar equals 56.94 of theirs. [xiv]        
  77. 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 $4.321 per gallon, $2.971 in Florida, $4.089 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xv]    Let’s look at one other location- District of Columbia: $3.245.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The next country on the list has the next lowest gasoline price in the world- Costa Rica: $4.483 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,556,382,310,872 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after France, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Norway with $88 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 122 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border separating the United States from barbarism and her 28th day since she ‘visited the border’ on her one and only photo op trip.  Joe Biden- strip this gibbering jackal, this shrieking night bird, this howling jackanapes, this screeching forest orangutan, Willie Brown’s mattress, and send her home to spend more time with her family.  She is a failure in everything she does.  Meanwhile, construction restarted on the border wall in Texas as Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, got the project going again using taxpayer dollars and donations to do what must be done: defending the United States from the massive numbers of illegals trying to storm our country.
  79. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers as compiled by One America News for the absolute catastrophe occurring along our southern border.  First, here is the cost for caring for the millions of illegal vermin crossing the border: $525,583,584 just this day.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the castoff Third World dregs this year: $222.992,384,576.  Next, here is the number estimated to have crossed the southern border this year: 2,285,483.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the taxpayers’-tired teats: 36,285,484. [xviii]  As everyone should know, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has been around since early 2009 and back then, we estimated the numbers of illegals within the United States then as between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the honest-to-God numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  This is insane and no country can withstand a tidal wave of illegal aliens as we now are.  Round ‘em up along with whatever children the scum have fathered or given birth to here, put them in tent prison camps in the Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas deserts, and when air transport, derelict freighters, buses, cattle cars, and any other type of transportation arises, get them the hell out of here.  NOW.
  80. 2021 Friday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– A Gallup poll says that 31-percent of ALL Americans want immigration decreased.  We think that immigration must be curtailed as it was early in the previous century as we do not need a tidal wave of ignorant, permanent lower-class dependents sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers.  Build the f**king wall and deport them all.   Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Johnson, R-LA 4th CD, is demanding answers for WHY a large number of Haitians allowed to enter the U.S. via the southern border were dumped all over the state with no advance warning to local authorities.
  81. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Chi-Com bigwig, a man who fashions himself as the global dictator, Xi Jinping and his corrupt, evil regime have slapped sanctions on former U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and five others after the Biden regime issued an advisory warning U.S. business of the risks of doing business in Hong Kong.  Meanwhile, reports suggest that the United States is doing what it should have done prior to the withdrawal from Afghanistan and that is launching air-and-drone strikes against weapons captured by the Taliban that we left behind as well as on Taliban targets, too.  Good.  Use neutron bombs, irradiate these barbarous scumbags.
  82. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden continues taking heat for his irresponsible comments on Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  The senile old fool says that if you get vaccinated you ‘won’t get sick, you won’t be hospitalized, and most of all, you won’t die.’  Joe, what the hell have you been smoking you old fool?  Add to Joe’s woes over his ludicrous comments regarding inflation and we see an ‘administration’ on the cusp of going down the crapper faster than Jimmy Carter’s.   The country needs deliverance from this insanity.  Can’t Barack Hussein Obama do a better job as the “Cho-Mo Joe whisperer’ than what he’s presently doing?
  83. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– The regime White House says it has the ‘highest ethical standards of ANY White House in U.S. history’ even as a growing cacophony of the American people question drug-addled Hunter Biden’s ‘private art sales.’  Who is buying his ‘13th Floor Elevators album covers-style artworks’ and how much are they paying for this psychedelic crap?  The man is NOT an artist, he is little more than a dope head with predilections for young children like his father, regime leader Joe Biden.  In other Biden regime news, when asked by a reporter as to numbers inside the White House afflicted by the ‘VID, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki responded with: “Why do you need to know the numbers?”  Speaking of “Circle Back” Psaki, she also guaranteed White House reporters that ethics safeguards are now in place to make sure Hunter Biden is not selling his artworks to America’s enemies to open a back channel to the voice in his feeble father’s ear.
  84. 2021 Friday L: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– After the Major League Baseball 2021 Season concludes, the fabled Cleveland Indians have announced that in order to appease the WOKIES going berserk on social media, they are going to change their name to- get this- the Cleveland Guardians which sounds much like a DEFENSIVE name, not an OFFENSIVE one.  If it makes you feel better, then go for it but we hope the Atlanta Braves and the Kansas City Chiefs keep their names.  President Donald J. Trump had to add his two cents to the conservation and called the name change a ‘big disgrace.’  Amen.    
  85. : Whacked-Out News of the Day– Meanwhile, Tennessee’s state house removed the bust of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and sent it God knows where.  The bust was installed back in 1979.  The man was the creator of the Ku Klux Klan; however, destroying history is foolish because in so doing, the lessons the next generation can learn disappear, possibly to be repeated again at some point in the future.   Curiously, the busts of two famous U.S. Admirals- David Farragut and Albert Gleaves- so as NOT to hurt the feelings of the Forrest bust.  There is NO other explanation as to WHY one would remove two U.S. heroes.
  86. 2021 Friday N: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Jason Sengheiser blasted the St. Louis prosecutors office over the dismissals of murder charges against three separate defendants.   The judge accused the office of Kim Gardner of shirking its duty of protecting the community from violent thugs.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   In other despicable news, President Donald J. Trump’s former inaugural chairman Tom Barrack walked out of jail today on a $250 million bond.  A $250 million bond.  What is this, a banana republic?  Flamin’ crap, folks, the country is falling into the abyss.
  87. 2021 Friday O: U.S. House of Representatives News I– The House Freedom Caucus is pushing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD to employ a House rule that would allow the lower chamber to boot Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the rapidly deteriorating fascist dictator out of the speakership and onto her butt.  In a letter to the senior GOP leader in the House, they wrote: “We, the House Freedom Caucus, respectfully request that you pursue the authorization of the House Republican Conference, pursuant to Conference rules, to file and bring up a privileged motion by July 31, 2021, to vacate the chair and end Nancy Pelosi’s authoritarian reign as Speaker of the House.  Rule IX, Clause 3 of the Rules of the House of Representatives for the One Hundred Seventeenth Congress requires that ‘A resolution causing a vacancy in the Office of Speaker shall not be privileged except if offered by direction of a party caucus or conference.”  The fact that Speaker Mumbles booted two of Leader McCarthy’s picks from her sham January 06, 2021, Select Committee caused Leader McCarthy to say that in the ‘history of the House, this has never happened before.’  He pulled his remaining picks and the lemon-sucking speaker said ‘good’ and is going to run her ersatz committee with skunks such as Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th CD, as ‘representatives of the GOP.’  Leader McCarthy, we hope you will act on the Freedom Caucus’ letter.
  88. 2021 Friday P: Federal and State Court News– Finally!  A federal appellate court finds the CDC moratorium on evictions is ‘unconstitutional’ which is good news for landlords as they have bills to pay, too.
  89. 2021 Friday Q: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1679 what with a $140 million jackpot on the line: 13, 17, 19, 40, 69 and Mega 17.  Out of 63,207 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $8,638 apiece.
  90. 2022 Saturday: This past Tuesday, the dingleberry Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- AOC- and her good buds, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar were arrested in front of the United States Supreme Court for blocking traffic.  Others of their ilk underwent ‘arrest,’ too, what with magic handcuffs behind their backs.  What a bullshit show.  Can we please remove these dimwitted skanks from office in November?  Besides, the ‘big booty Latina’s’ rear-end is the product of a Brazilian butt lift, it ain’t real just like her and her ’fiancé’ is little more than a suck-up punk.   One has to love Alex Stein, the comedian, the man is hilarious.

  67. 2020 Thursday A: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 26,652.33, DOWN 353.51 points (-1.31%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,461.42, DOWN 244.71 points (-2.29%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,235.66, DOWN 40.36 points (-1.23%).  Price of GOLD: $1,887.10 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.15%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $22.86 per troy oz., -0.123 (-0.54%).  Price of PLATINUM: $956.60 per troy oz., -7.20 (-0.75%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $2.92 per #, -0.016 (-0.54%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.17, +0.10 (+0.24%).  The markets were down because for the first time since the pandemic from communist China hit back in March, unemployment numbers rose to 1.4 million new claims bringing the number of unemployed Americans to around 32 million.
  68. 2020 Thursday B: Today is the 56th straight day of rioting and protests in the city of Portland, Oregon.  Mayor Ted Wheeler, Democrat, says federal law enforcement is responsible for the rioting when in truth, it’s the ambivalence of the mayor and his city council that bears full responsibility for the mayhem occurring in that once beautiful city’s streets.  The previous night, in a despicable act of virtue-signaling, the mayor went out on the streets to participate in the riots and the agitators threw garbage at him and told him to resign.  He suffered two bouts of tear-gassing before his security people removed him from the streets to safety  Arrest the mayor, mow down the Antifa thugs.  Bring sanity back NOW!  Meanwhile, national polling averages give “Pro-China Joe” Biden a 15-point lead over President Donald J. Trump.  According to Democrats, Trump is ‘toast’ and might as well resign and go home NOW.
  69. 2020 Thursday C: On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka the Fly, Democratic-Socialist, blubbered about comments made by Florida GOP Congressman Ted Yoho in which he called the dingbat far-left socialist a “F**king bitch.”  Well, she is a F**king Bitch and needs to be beaten in November.
  70. 2021 Friday: What will the stock market and commodities be today in usurper Joe’s America?  No telling but we are anticipating a crash of the markets sometime this summer because the crazy crap the Biden regime is doing is not for the benefit of the country but for the ‘president’ and his crime family.  Stick around and find out along with us.
