130. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2022

1943 Monday: The coming late spring-early summer offensive in the Soviet Union is getting in motion. Operation Citadel- the attack on the Kursk Salient in the Ukraine- has been given the go-ahead by Hitler himself even though German intelligence assets have told the Fuhrer that the Soviets have established a massive defense in depth. This will be the greatest clash of armor and tactical aircraft the world has ever seen.

  62. 2008 Saturday: Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, takes the lead in the superdelegate count- a very peculiar thing the Democrats have to steal nominations in presidential elections for their chosen candidate.  The first-term Illinois senator is smoking Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY.

  64. 2010 Monday: Solicitor General Elena Kagan is the youngest nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court and the third woman.  Elsewhere, jihadists carry out a wave of suicide attacks across Iraq, blowing up at least 102 unsuspecting souls and injuring more than 200.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace.’

  68. 2014 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Brazilian police distribute pamphlets to World Cup visitors with instructions on how to behave in the event of a robbery; law enforcement means the ‘advice’ to protect victims from injury or death during crime.

  71. 2017 Wednesday: To the delight of environmentalists everywhere, the U.S. Geological Service releases a study claiming that some glaciers in Montana have receded by 85-percent over the past half-century.  No wonder imbeciles such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the world is coming to an end soon.  Sadly, the Sun is the sole driver of all climatic changes throughout the entire Solar System.  Conversation and fighting pollution is indeed important but the Earth- and other planets- have all gone through periods of climate change throughout the history of said Solar system.  Meanwhile, to the ‘horror’ of Democrats, President Donald J. Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).
  72. 2018 Thursday: Following Iran firing missiles into Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria, the IDF lights up Iranian targets in Syria with 70 missiles, blowing up numerous installations and other military infrastructure.  Of course, Iran claims Israel started the fight.

  76. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,304 chi-vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, 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, the 46th president is shy 182,305 deaths.      
  77. 2021 Monday 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: 3,759,618 confirmed cases, 62,314 confirmed deaths, and 2,003,503 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,272,102 confirmed cases, 35,785 confirmed deaths, and 1,853,131 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,267 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Northern Marianas Islands, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands become states: they have 170 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[x]

  79. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,742.82, DOWN 34.92 points (-0.10%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,401.86, DOWN 350.38 points (-2.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.43, DOWN 44.17 points (-1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.85 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.011%).  The price of GOLD is $1,835.50 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.44%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,249.50 per troy oz, -16.00 (-1.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,952.91 per troy oz, +26.40 (+0.90%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 15.18 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, a buck equals 10,154.00 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.33 of theirs.[xv]       
  80. 2021 Monday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  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- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by the Beach Boys- “Surfin’ USA”- came out on March 25, 1963, and featured the same lineup of Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals).  This album continued the new group’s rise to the top via tunes such as the title track, “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Shut Down.”  The Beach Boys were not content to ride the wave with just one genre of music, i.e., surf music, as numerous copycats were jumping aboard the surf train.  They also were delving into their love of hot rods, hot chicks, and wild times in So-Cal.  Hawthorne, California, would never be the same nor would the world.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[xix] Here is what WE think: like the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico blew up back in 2010, at the time many of us had our suspicions that the Obama-Biden administration had some foreknowledge of that event and used to shut down offshore oil drilling for years.  They shut down drilling off our coasts but allowed the rigs to relocate off the coast of Brazil to drill for oil down there.  Likewise, we think the Russian-backed Darkside hacking group shut this extremely important pipeline so as (1) to cut the amount of oil in the country; (2) to drive up the costs of oil and oil-based products; and (3) to help hasten the bullshit Green New Deal through to being.  Mark our words- Olaf Bologolo. 

124. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, MAY 04, 2022

1954 Tuesday A: The attempt to reach Dien Bien Phu by French Union forces fighting from the south in Operation Condor had stalled.

Gavin Newsom?  Colleagues up in Washington state report 15,462 confirmed cases what with confirmed deaths at 841 and- like California- NO recovery confirmation numbers.  Gov.

  66. 2021 Tuesday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 277,565 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another 240.56 days, 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 185,968 deaths. 
  67. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,748,785 confirmed cases, 61,986 confirmed deaths, and 1,996,486 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,249,535 confirmed cases, 35,399 confirmed deaths, and 1,817,665 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,732 confirmed cases, 484 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 409,585 confirmed cases, 5,567 confirmed deaths, and 200,937 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Wyoming, a place with a horrible congresswoman: they have 57,142 confirmed cases, 710 confirmed deaths, but 0 confirmed recoveries as they won’t mention them.[ix]   Meanwhile, effective July 01, 2021, ALL remaining in-state and local COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions will end, so says Governor Ron DeSantis.  Awesome.
  68. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,697 confirmed cases, 6,369 confirmed deaths, and 831,090 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Uruguay, a place that was once home to Nazis: 204,120 cases of the virus, 2,796 confirmed deaths and 176,783 confirmed recoveries.[x]

  70. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.050 per gallon, $2.834 in Florida, $3.796 in Hawaii, and $3.488 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- New Mexico: $2.879.  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- Malaysian: $1.887 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,247,962,760,073 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.
  71. 2021 Tuesday F: Foreign News / Overseas News– U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is visiting the Ukraine today.[xviii]   Next, Iran confirms the authenticity of tape where Climate Czar John F. “Lurch” Kerry[xix] commits various Logan Act violations by sharing with the Iranians at least, we repeat- at least– 200 separate incidences of the Mossad carrying out surreptitious activities against Iranian interests in the hellhole of Syria.  In other news related to overseas activities, former Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller- part of the Trump administration- is urging the Biden administration NOT to let its guard down regarding the use of directed-energy weapons on U.S. personnel worldwide.  He calls it ‘an act of war’ and suggests that even if it’s ‘nonlethal,’ we owe it to our people to investigate so as to be better protected in the future.
  72. 2021 Tuesday G: Covid-19 Updates And Additional Information– First, early information is suggesting that the COVID-19-caused pandemic shutdowns of cities may be in the preliminary stages of reversal.  Next, Pfizer seeks full clearance from the Food and Drug Administration for the use of its Chi-Vi vaccine for everyone.  Elsewhere, U.S. states are not ordering their full allotments of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu over a lessening demand for the questionable inoculations.
  73. 2021 Tuesday H: Joe Biden Regime News I–   We learn today that thanks to Joe Biden being president (well, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is ‘president’), the death tax is going to rise to 40-61-percent meaning their family’s tragedy will also see financial rape of the grieving survivors.  Wow.  Thank you, President Obama, uh, we mean, “El Presidente Joe Biden.”   Meanwhile, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, DS, says the regime is moving ahead with reuniting illegal alien families torn asunder by the Trump administration.   Elsewhere, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Mark A. Milley is dropping his opposition to changes in sexual assault policies.  Wow.  Sell-out.
  74. 2021 Tuesday I: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he is considering a slick budgetary maneuver whereby he can legalize tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the shadows of our country.  Gee whiz, thank you, Chuckie, thank you.
  75. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– the House GOP is calling for an oversight hearing on the Capitol Hill Police Department and their actions on FALSE FLAG OPERATION DAY on January 06, 2021.  Next, GOP lawmakers seek a probe of Amazon’s Jedi contract.   Elsewhere, the GOP is adding an additional 10 Democrat-held congressional seats deemed to be vulnerable in 2022.  (Note- get rid of YOUR RINO problem, too, Republicans).  Moving on, UNC Chapel Hill has bestowed a professorship on the clown that created the 1619 ‘Project,’ (a bullshit propaganda project with which to wail and cry and to point fingers at the evil whiteys)[xx].  In other news, former Governor Charlie Crist, RINO-FL-turned Democrat Congressman, 13th congressional district, is making another run for the gubernatorial mansion.  Loser.  Finally, Eric Trump says there is NO way that fuddled old Joe Biden can hold a candle to his father’s energy on the job.
  76. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– We learned today that Newsmax settled a lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada, that they apologized and agreed to stop questioning the 2020 Presidential Election’s veracity.  One America News, however, won’t back down for which, we congratulate them.  However, if Canada WON’T use Dominion Voting Systems nor Smartmatic Software in their own elections, what does that say about their trustworthiness and honesty?  Not very much.  Speaking of the untrustworthy, it now appears that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, will be out as GOP Conference Chair by the end of the month.  This woman and the other corrupt Republicans that leapt onto the President Donald J. Trump impeachment vote as showing their virtue ALL must lose their seats.  Period.  She needs to join the Democrats of which she truly is one…finally, the Justice Department has been ordered to release the memo cited by then-U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr as to why there was no charge of obstruction launched against President Donald J. Trump when feeble old Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III concluded his ginned-up, bogus investigation into the 45th president.
  77. 2021 Tuesday L: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– The attorney for convicted murderer and former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin has filed for a new trial now that we learn the jurors were going to convict him on ALL counts no matter what which is not justice but a kangaroo court.  The judge in the case pointed out that thanks to people like that dingbat from California, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, going there and rabble rousing the lynch mob outside the courthouse every day, that her actions put the entire outcome of the trial in jeopardy.  We expect to see Chauvin win a new trial, be acquitted, and get his old job back.  Boo-yeah!
  78. 2021 Tuesday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– stick around for the results on tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1656 with a pot of $345 million available to some lucky winner…here are the results: 04, 27, 32, 57, 63, and Mega 22.  Out of 136,836 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $947,704.
  79. 2022 Wednesday: Everyone Wang Chung tonight…

[iii] We promoted the music of It’s a Beautiful Day beginning on Thursday, 25-August-2011 through Monday, 29-August-2011 and a second round on Tuesday, 04-February-2014 through Wednesday, 05-February-2014.  Please seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[xviii] This schmo also warned the Chi-Coms it would be a mistake to attack Taiwan.  What is the U.S. going to do to stop it, Secretary Blinken?  Launch a nuclear barrage on the Chi-Coms?  I doubt it.  (Note- living in Israel allows me to view the world differently and I think there is no way the U.S.- without President Donald J. Trump in the White House– can do to stop such an attack.  I fear it would be over before it began- Mo).

[xix] Speaking of ‘climate,’ a NYU physicist says that ‘humans have NOT broken the climate.’

[xx] Nikole Hannah-Jones cannot handle any criticism of her bogus ‘history.’  Why is it we cannot continue the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.?  Why do we have to continue finding ways of tearing the country apart?  Here is why: for some, it’s profitable.  Look at ‘Reverend’ Al Sharpton, look at ‘Reverend’ Jesse Jackson, look at that POS lawyer Benjamin Crump, these scalawags and scoundrels reap lots of wealth tearing the fabric of the nation asunder.  Going to be time to move to Russia or Chi-Com land…at least they defend their countries.

108. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 18, 2022

2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election. The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’ Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See! See! The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’ Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…

  49. 2005 Monday: In the Papal Conclave of 2005, senior cardinals signal no new pope has been chosen by sending up black smoke, the traditional method of signaling no decision.  When white smoke goes up, they have made their choice and will inform the world.  We will await the decision.
  50. 2006 Tuesday: Since becoming president in 2003, Chi-Com President Hu Jintao arrives in Washington state, his first official visit to the United States.  Meanwhile, Russian gas company Gazprom and customer European Union are having issues.  The head of Gazprom told the EU leadership NOT to politicize the delivery of cheap energy for the rest of Europe.
  51. 2007 Wednesday: People across the United States are protesting gun crimes what with the massacre at Virginia Tech earlier in the week.  Police announce their suspect is a Korean student named 23-year-old Cho Seung-Hui as the mass murderer.  The POS used two handguns to kill more people in 10 minutes than ever before.  Wow. 
  52. 2008 Friday: Ahead of trade talks between the United States and South Korea, the latter agrees to open its markets to U.S. beef from the former.  (Note- we find it amazing that we have all these allies who won’t take our goods.  What’s up with that?)

  55. 2011 Monday: Things continue getting out of hand in Syria.  In the city of Homs, anti-government protesters are angrier than ever after the Syrian military opened fire on people protesting the Bashar al-Assad regime.  A military officer who refused to fire on protesters undergoes execution himself.   Anti-Bashar al-Assad protesters are getting whacked all over the country.
  56. 2012 Wednesday: The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission together complete rules to limit which firms are required to register with either or both agencies as ‘swap dealers.’  Elsewhere, the wimpified U.S. military is condemning photos of U.S. servicemen posing with the corpses of mangled suicide bombers.  At least two such incidents occurred.  (Note- they should have seen photos from the Vietnam War.  It was what it was).
  57. 2013 Thursday: Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f, two planets resembling planet Earth are discovered revolving around the star Kepler-62 in the habitable zone, an area around the stars whose atmospheric pressure can support liquid water at the surface.   Elsewhere, President Barack Obama visits the city of Boston.  Meanwhile, as a condition of talking to the Obama administration, North Korea demands that all UN-imposed sanctions on their country be lifted or screw off.
  58. 2014 Friday: About 80 miles northwest of the resort town of Acapulco, Mexico, a 7.2-magnitude earthquake hits but the authorities report only minimal damage.  Elsewhere, in the Ukrainian city of Donetsk, pro-Russian thugs holding government buildings refuse to surrender them to Ukrainian authorities threatening an international incident.  Kiev needs to send in some worse thugs than the Russian scum holding them and evict them right into a prison cell.  This is what happens when an American president- Bill Clinton- promised the Ukrainians that ‘America would come to their defense if they would only surrender their nuclear weapons.’  This mess occurred shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union.
  59. 2015 Saturday: In Nigeria, 17 people die from a mystery disease within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms.  Tests show that the disease is not viral; however, currently, there is no identification.  Elsewhere, the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inducts Ringo Starr[vi] (finally!), the Paul Butterfield Blues Band[vii] (finally!), Joan Jett and the Blackhearts[viii] (finally!), Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble[ix] (guy’s been dead quite a while), Green Day[x], Bill Withers[xi], Lou Reed[xii] (finally), and the Five Royals.

  61. 2017 Tuesday: After a racist, anti-white gunman goes on a shooting rampage in downtown Fresno, California, law enforcement catches up with the murderous POS charging him with three murders as well as one or two others he committed several days prior to these crimes.   SHOOT him.   Meanwhile, President Trump visits Kenosha, Wisconsin, and signs an executive order with which to strengthen U.S. workers as opposed to foreign workers as well as to examine the number of H-1B visa handed out by the U.S. every year so BIG TECH can avoid hiring American workers in place of low-cost foreign workers. 
  62. 2018 Wednesday: In Managua, Nicaragua, as protesters march protesting cuts to social programs by the Sandinista government, pro-government gangs take to the streets and begin beating the living bejezzus out of them.  Such is the ‘communist way.’   Elsewhere as more information arises from Israeli air strikes into neighboring Syria appears, we learn that their targets were Iranian missile systems with which to target Israeli aircraft.  Well, the Iranians will have to start over…
  63. 2019 Thursday: Attorney General William “Bill” Barr releases a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s findings on whether then candidate Donald J. Trump conspired with the Russkies to win the 2016 Presidential Election.  The findings found NO trace of any collusion between Vladimir Putin and candidate Trump but also did not entirely clear President Trump of other ‘alleged’ or ‘suspected wrongdoings.’  Foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats were screaming, “See!  See!  The report did not say Trump didn’t collude; no, it only said no evidence could be uncovered.’  Ah, gee whiz, and so it goes…
  64. 2020 Saturday:  The COVID-19 Virus Crisis continues taking lives and ruining economies around the globe.  Many speculate that the Chinese- allied with the Democrats- set this debacle upon the world.  Rather funny how it sprang up in the death throes of impeachment.  Thank you, communist China, thank you, Democratic Party.  Around the globe, we have 2,310,572 confirmed cases of this horrible disease, 158,691 confirmed deaths, and 590,682 confirmed recoveries. 
    The United States claims 739,988 confirmed cases what with 38,928 confirmed fatalities but 66,357 confirmed recoveries.  Yet Democratic governors such as Gretchen Whitmer and the KKK governor of Virginia, continue locking down their states as though they are communists themselves.  One can only wonder why?  Meanwhile, our ‘friends,’ the People’s Republic of China claim 88,302 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths, and 82,589 confirmed recoveries.
  65. 2020 Saturday: In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the former 72nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Paul H. O’Neill died at age 84.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, to December 31, 2002.

  67. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 247,359 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   In other COVID-19 news, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s ‘unlikely that the J & J Chi-Vi vaccine will be sidelined for good.’  We aren’t going to take that crap so you may as well send it to the Chi-Coms, the Iranians, or some other crap-hole country.  Oh, Dr. Fauci also says ‘guns are a health issues.’  No kidding- get shot by one and you have a problem but then again, so are knives and sledgehammers if misused.
  68. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,716,603 confirmed cases, 60,949 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,168,901 confirmed cases, 34,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,606 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 387,312 confirmed cases, 5,427 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nevada, the home of fraudulent 2020 Election results: they have 310,239 confirmed cases, 5,365 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xiv] 
  69. 2021 Sunday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,047 confirmed cases, 6,338 confirmed deaths, and 828,235 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- the West Bank, long a part of Israel: 279,273 cases of the virus, 2,983 confirmed deaths and 245,293 confirmed recoveries.[xv]  
  70. 2021 Sunday D: U.S. DOLLAR CONVERSIONS– Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Haitian Gourde, one greenback equals 81.80 and in Honduran Lempira, a buck equals 23.98.[xvi]
  71. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE FOUR STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.968 per gallon, $2.826 in Florida, $3.745 in Hawaii, and $3.371 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.676.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,186,291,746,801 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]
  72. 2021 Sunday F: GUNS-GUNS-GUNS– in the era of the FALSE PRESIDENT- Joe Biden- gun crimes continue unabated what a shooting at a bar in Kenosha, Wisconsin, early this morning that killed three and injured another three.  By midday, law enforcement had located a person of interest in this mass shooting.  Meanwhile, another mass shooting occurred in an Austin, Texas, apartment complex when an unknown shooter shot and killed three people and then vanished into thin air.  Police are going door to door searching for the scumbag involved in this crime.  Already, it would appear that more mass shootings have occurred under the Biden regime than in the entire Trump presidency.  Are people this upset with a phony president in the White House?  Are they upset over the phony president’s plans to strip them of their guns that they are pouring out of the woodwork like the cockroaches they are taking care of business before they are forced to mete out justice and/or punishment via baseball bats and meat cleavers?  What the hell is going on?[xix] 
  73. 2021 Sunday G: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– Joe Biden plans to release 400 illegal alien families with their brats into the interior of the country per day by June 2021.  We are not going to provide care for this human refuse, Joe.  Let ‘em die in the streets.  Next, a Texas illegal alien holding pen for young girls gets shut down after a volunteer work dies under mysterious circumstances.   Meanwhile, a mumbling, stumbling phony president, Joe Biden, mutters that he has no numbers regarding refugees he is going to resettle in the United States but is looking at 60,000 this year and another 100,000 per year thereafter.  Thank you, f**king Joe.
  74. 2021 Sunday H: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I– Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Australian government says they are in no hurry to reopen their borders that have been closed thanks to COVID-19.  Next, the Czech Republic expels Russian foreign embassy staff over link to alleged 2014 sabotage carried out by the Russkies that blew up a Czech ammo dump.  Meanwhile, we learn that the Chi-Coms are ecstatic over the weakness displayed by both senile Joe Biden and a feeble Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga.  Taiwan, we’re coming for you.   Moving on, the GOP is demanding a stronger show of force as the Russian buildup along the Ukrainian border continues.  Invasion coming here soon, too.  We expect the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, and others are going to move simultaneously, and Joe Biden will be left playing pocket pool on the sidelines.  Speaking of Joe Biden’s impotency, former DNI John Ratcliffe says ‘America’s adversaries are taking advantage of Joe Biden’s extremely evident weakness.’ 
  75. 2021 Sunday I:  FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II– President Donald J. Trump says, ‘it’s a positive and wonderful thing to be getting out of Afghanistan but is critical of the timeline of the withdrawal.’  He negotiated the U.S. departure by May 1, 2021, and Joe Biden has extended it to September 11, 2001.  Here is what we think: we think it’s a ploy by the Bidenistas to cause the Taliban to begin launching major attacks on U.S. positions and personnel so the United States can turn around and say, “Oh, woe, we have to remain in the s***hole country for another 4-8 years so we can continue profiting from the death and destruction.”  There is NO reason to remain in Afghanistan, folks.   Elsewhere, the Mossad announces that ‘yes, indeed, the Biden regime is working at getting back into the FAILED Iran nuclear program.’  Thanks for telling us this but we already knew this POS Joe Biden has no original ideas of his own.  Speaking of the Iranian fecal matter, they fired a barrage of rockets into a base utilized by U.S. contractors in Iraq.  Let’s light Tehran up!  Kill ‘em all!
  76. 2021 Sunday J: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS III– Joe Biden’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan claims that his boss, the incredibly fuddled Joe Biden is taking a ‘tough stance’ on Vladimir Putin’s Russia over its ongoing mistreatment of Putin critic Alexei Navalny.  Why Navalny returned to Russia is beyond us but hey, the Russians are doing horrible crap to the imprisoned anti-Putin, which is not right, but Joe Biden is going to do NOTHING about anything.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s climate czar, the incredibly phony John F. “Lurch” Kerry is ignoring South Korea’s complaints about Japan’s releasing of toxic water from its shuttered Fukushima nuclear power plant into the ocean. 
  77. 2021 Sunday K: POLITICAL NEWS I– Former President Donald J. Trump ambassador to Denmark Carla Sands is considering a run for Senator Pat Toomey’s seat in Pennsylvania.   Next, Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that Joe Biden unlike President Franklin Delano Roosevelt is in an advantageous position to pack the U.S. Supreme Court.   Many in the GOP are confident that expanding the U.S. Supreme Court will be detrimental to the Democrats in 2022 and again in 2024.  Big flipping deal, the damage will be done and with tens of millions new illegal alien voters, it won’t matter.  Why are you people so obstinately stupid?   Speaking of other stupidity, new SEC Chairman Gary Gensler plans to increase rules and regulations (such as the ones President Donald J. Trump eradicated) so he can help make Joe Biden’s Green New Deal a reality.  Wow.  Going to be great.
  78. 2021 Sunday L: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Grand Old Party in the Peach State has censured not only Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, and others among statewide leadership over their failure to adequately address President Donald J. Trump’s concerns over election fraud.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, former Democrat-turned-Republican Vernon Jones announced yesterday that he is going to primary Gov. Kemp.  Poor Governor Kemp, he should have stood by President Trump as should have Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, another RINO POS.  We hope they lose in next year’s primaries.   Meanwhile, Congressman Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd congressional district, criticizes befuddled old Joe Biden’s work schedule, says that he is ‘not working hard enough like a purported U.S. president.’  Elsewhere, we learn today that the National Security Agency- the NSA- is targeting U.S. Navy officers who are pro-Trump instead of targeting foreign enemies abroad.  Wow.  How sad.  Are we beginning to see the beginning of America’s first Soviet-style purge of military officers?  Wow.   Finally, at a Lincoln Day fundraiser in Florida, President Donald J. Trump received a thunderous standing ovation from hundreds of assembled guests.  “Miss him yet?”  You better believe we all do.
  79. 2021 Sunday M: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Elon Musk beats out Jeff Bezos and Amazon getting a $3 billion NASA contract with which to return Americans to the moon. Moving on, a Rasmussen poll says that 54-percent of likely American voters disapprove of what the Democrat-controlled Congress is doing.  We bet it’s way higher than that.   Another poll shows that since the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election, CNN’s ratings have plummeted by 54-percent.  Equally hateful MSNBC also has seen severe losses in viewership.  Next, an Antifa watchdog group has released the mugshots of all the Black Lives Matter and Antifa thugs and punks arrested in Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, for the world to see.  Most of them are spoiled white punks which leads us to reiterate what we have said before: when two generations of young people are spared the belt across their bare asses, this is what you end up with- punks.   Speaking of Brooklyn Center, riots continue in that city as well as in other cities across the nation as leftist scumbags prepare for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, says the lawsuit the state has on Joe Biden will force the feeble old fool to ‘enforce the law’ instead of avoiding it.
  80. 2022 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 505,019,209 confirmed cases, +211,451, 6,224,359 confirmed deaths, +1,092 and 456,444,263 confirmed recoveries, +441,770.

  81. 2022 Monday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 566,404 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 201,649 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 453 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

[i] This is the TRUE government of China, Nationalist China which is FREE China.  Although these people inhabit Taiwan, the former island of Formosa, they are the true owners of mainland China, too, and the sooner they reclaim their birthright, the sooner the world will heal.

[ii] We look forward to sharing the music of this influential British band within the next five years.  Colosseum was overlooked when we shared the group of interconnected bands in which, Humble Pie, was a part.  Sorry for the oversight.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.

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

[v] As always, our main source is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, Da Capo Press, 2004.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We hope to share the music of the Paul Butterfield Blues Band as well as Al Kooper sometime in the next 10-15 years.  We hope you will remain with us as loyal readers.

[viii] Not sure when we will begin celebrating the music of Joan Jett and the Blackhearts but when we do…you will be among the first to know.

[ix] As to when we will celebrate the life, times, and music of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, we haven’t a clue so stay alert for the day we finally do.

[x] We doubt we will ever do the music of Green Day.

[xi] We hope to celebrate the music of Bill Withers one day.  Please stay alert for when that day arrives.  You will be glad you did.

[xii] We began promoting the music of the Velvet Underground starting on Tuesday, 18-March-2014 through Wednesday, 09-April-2014.  At the time we promoted this famous New York City rock band, we failed to share the music of the man himself, Lou Reed.  We hope to rectify that mistake when we return to promoting American bands again.  Thank you for your patience.

63. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 04, 2022, UPDATE A

Lindsey Graham wants Vladimir Putin ‘taken out by his people.’ Wow. It’s one thing to call for the death of an ISIS scumbag like Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi or the Quds Force commander but quite another thing to call for the death of the leader of a nuclear-armed country. Senator Graham is little more than a neocon, a paper tiger, and a punk. Shut up.

63. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 04, 2022, UPDATE A:

Lindsey Graham wants Vladimir Putin ‘taken out by his people.’  Wow.  It’s one thing to call for the death of an ISIS scumbag like Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi or the Quds Force commander but quite another thing to call for the death of the leader of a nuclear-armed country.  Senator Graham is little more than a neocon, a paper tiger, and a punk.  Shut up.

  2. 2022 Friday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 533,865 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 170,810 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 408 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Friday 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: 9,001,840 confirmed cases, 86,427 confirmed deaths, and 8,915,463 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it-.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,858,437 confirmed cases, 70,790 confirmed deaths, and 4,358,286 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 236,983 confirmed cases, 1,348 confirmed deaths, and 235,635 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,430,235 confirmed cases, 12,025 confirmed deaths, and 1,418,210 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Veterans Affairs: they have 609,381 confirmed cases, 20,988 confirmed deaths, and 582,553 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Friday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,662,071 confirmed cases, 10,264 confirmed deaths, and 3,585,292 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- St. Lucia, 169th place on the list: 22,733 cases of the virus, 360 confirmed death and 22,280 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Friday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,614.80, DOWN 179.86 points (-0.53%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,313.44 DOWN 224.50 points (-1.66%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,328.87, DOWN 34.62 points (-0.79%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $115.00 per barrel, +7.33 (+6.81%).  The price of GOLD is $1,974.90 per troy oz., +39.00 (+2.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.89 per troy ounce, +0.67 (+2.67%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,126.00 per troy oz, +45.20 (+4.18%) while the price of COPPER is $4.92 per pound, +0.14 (+2.87%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $3,004.05 per troy oz., +228.44 (+8.23%). The price of RHODIUM is $20,100.00 per troy oz., +350.00 (+1.77%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,470,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,902.00 per USD/T, +185.50 (+4.99%).

  6. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.074 per gallon, $3.674 in Florida, $4.660 in Hawaii, and $4.220 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Missouri- $3.485.  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 143rd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Monaco: $7.441 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,296,510,611,095 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 South Korea the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Canada.  This nation holds $120,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- A new report suggests that the ‘Kremlin was surprised by Vladimir Putin’s invasion of neighboring Ukraine as well as by the subsequent harsh sanctions slapped atop them.’  Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham, RINO-SC, set off a firestorm last night when he called for a ‘Brutus,’ for a Klaus Von Stauffenberg to whack Vladimir Putin and thus halt the invasion as well as free the Russian people.  After being slammed by virtually everyone, the neocon senator walked back his provocative comments.  Grant Stinchfield of Newsmax says he’s in full agreement with Senator Graham and that the Russian thug should be whacked.’  Elsewhere, the attack on Ukraine’s massive nuclear power plant by Russian forces sets off new fears of a Chernobyl-style nuclear disaster across the world.
  8. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- Relatives claim that Russian soldiers murdered fleeing Ukrainian civilians.  Meanwhile, the U.S. embassy in Ukraine says that Vladimir Putin’s attack on the nuclear plant is indeed a ‘war crime.’  Next, over 1 million refugees have been said to have fled Ukraine in the advance of Russian attacks.  The International Criminal Court says it’s going to launch an investigation into possible Russian war crimes in Ukraine.
  9. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III- While covering the news in Ukraine, a Sky News journalist was wounded when Russian forces ambushed his team of journalists.  Speaking of news, Chi-Com-owned Global Times says that ‘Russia lacks the national strength with which to directly confront NATO.’  In other news, Kyiv reports that its President Volodymyr Zelensky has survived three assassination attempts in the past three days.  God bless you, Mr. President, we hope you stay safe.  (Note- a former spokesperson for Mr. Zelensky says that ’93-percent of the Ukrainian people support their commander-in-chief).
  10. 2022 Friday I: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis IV- NATO reports there will be NO establishing of a No-Fly Zone over Ukraine.  Meanwhile, fears of mass conscription across Russia is driving tens of thousands of military-aged males in Russia to seek asylum abroad.   Elsewhere, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have launched a fundraiser for Ukraine, matching $3 million with their own money.  (Note- Mila- when are you going to do another ‘Ted’ movie with Mark Walberg?)  Moving on, underground groups in the U.S. are funneling mercenaries and medics into Ukraine to combat the new ‘Red Army.’
  11. 2022 Friday J: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- The U.S. Border Patrol says they are extremely skeptical of Joe Biden’s sudden desire to ‘defend the southern border.’  The border czar- Vice President Kamala Harris- has been in charge of the ongoing invasion for the past 336 days.  Sadly, it’s been 250 days since she arrived on the scene.  Tragic.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders the past 63 days is around $410,254,233.  Horrible, absolutely horrible.  Next, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders the past 428 days is an appalling $42,051,143,728.  Next, the number of illegals who have swarmed across the southern border since January 01, 2022, is- in our educated estimate- 656,913.  Each military division is around 60,000 men so that equals almost 11 divisions.  Talk about a Trojan horse.  Fourth and final, the estimated LOW number of illegals living in the country is around 43,416,843.  We, however, believe the numbers to be closer to double, if not treble that number.  Horrible.
  12. 2022 Friday K: Foreign News-Overseas News I- A new report says that German missiles making their way to Ukraine may already be obsolete.  Next, the BBC has announced it will no longer be reporting from Russia as other media outlets won’t what with Vladimir Putin’s new law prohibiting foreign media reporting Russian news.   The ban also includes Facebook and Twitter- and possibly other American social media companies- which has little Mark Zuckerberg pissed off and vowing that no matter what Putin says or does, he will get Facebook-Meta back up and running in the former Soviet Union.
  13. 2022 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $48.65 (2) AstraZeneca: $57.47 (3) Merck & Company: $77.83 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $169.48 (5) Novavax: $71.72 (6) BioNTech: $136.26 (7) Moderna: $136.46.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Pfizer: $47.73 (2) AstraZeneca: $60.58 (3) Merck & Company: $76.32 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $166.00 (5) Novavax: $81.63 (6) BioNTech: $150.62 (7) Moderna: $151.33.

  16. 2022 Friday O: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.95 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $27.88 (3) Beyond Meat: $43.18.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $65.67 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.02 (3) Beyond Meat: $44.49.
  17. 2022 Friday P: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $142.82 (2) Lowe’s: $224.07 (3) Home Depot: $324.26 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $525.50 (5) Amazon: $2,912.82.  Here is what these stocks were worth one week ago today: (1) Wal-Mart: $136.39 (2) Lowe’s: $219.10 (3) Home Depot: $316.65 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $517.49 (5) Amazon: $3,075.77.
  18. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I- The Biden regime has slapped new sanctions atop wealthy Russian oligarchs and their families.  Next, Biden Family mob mouthpiece Jen “Circle-Back” Psaki says the ‘Keystone XL Pipeline was NEVER operational.’  Say the f**k what?  Three portions of it were humming along while the rest could have been completed by now.  What the hell is it about these lying Democrat scumbags?  Ah, well, the White House claims that over the course of February, U.S. employers added 678,000 jobs- these are people returning to work.
  19. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II- The U.S. Department of Homeland Security announces it will provide temporary immigration relief to Ukrainians seeking to enter the country.  Next, for some reason unbeknownst to anyone other than the senile mind of drooling Joe Biden, the Biden regime is going to lift sanctions on various Iranian thugs, thugs who have carried out terror attacks on U.S. and allied governments.  What the hell is wrong with this dimwit?
  20. 2022 Friday S: Joe Biden Regime News III- The U.S. Treasury Department has announced sanctions on Russian media outlets.  RT- the Russian state-controlled news that appears on some American cable channels has closed down its operations in the United States thanks to the sanctions being slapped atop them.
  21. 2022 Friday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- This sham committee full of Trump-haters and other assorted losers has slapped a subpoena on Donald J. Trump Jr.’s fiancé Kimberly Guilfoyle.  They want to drag her in and beat her down in their insane push to prevent Donald Trump from winning the White House again which in our view now appears inevitable.  We hope that when he does that, he sends all of these scumbags to the North Slope in Alaska to atone for their crimes against the American people.
  22. 2022 Friday U: Political News I- Once again, another rat has appeared, taking cheap potshots at President Donald J. Trump: former Attorney General William “Bill” Barr.  He has sought to drive a dagger into his old boss with his new book, which is a shame.  President Trump said of his former AG that he’s ‘weak, ineffective, and scared.’  He sure disappointed the hell out of us.  Meanwhile, former Vice President Mike Pence says there’s ‘no room in the Republican Party for Putin apologists.’
  23. 2022 Friday V: Political News II- Congressman Pete Sessions, R-TX 17th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s fear’ (regarding the crackpot far left of his crumbling party) ‘is funding Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine’ because he won’t stop buying Russian oil and by ordering the resumption of domestic drilling, refining, and exporting U.S. oil and natural gas.  Next, Congressman Mike Turner, R-OH 10th congressional district, says there’s a ‘veto-proof support in the U.S. Congress for banning imports of Russian oil.’
  24. 2022 Friday W: Political News III- POS, soon-to-be-ex-Governor Doug Ducey, RINO-AZ, says he ‘won’t be running for the U.S. Senate seat in the Copper State.’  NO one wants the scumbag.  Meanwhile, after U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell scoffed at Senator Rick Scott’s ideas on what the GOP must do when it retakes the House and Senate in November, Senator Scott, R-FL, slapped back at ‘Cocaine Mitch.’  We do hope that if the GOP retakes power in the Senate, they will not elect the Democrat-loving dimwit from Kentucky ‘majority leader’ again.  It’s time for a change, folks.
  25. 2022 Friday X: U.S. Supreme Court News I- By a vote of 6-3, the U.S. Supreme Court returns the death sentence to surviving Boston Marathon bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.   Good.  Take this POS son-of-a-bitch out, string him up, and leave him for the crows.
  26. 2022 Friday Y: Tranny News of the Day- Thanks to ‘Lia Thomas,’ the chick with a dick swimmer at Penn State, the university women’s swimming team has imploded.  NO one thinks it’s fair to compete against a man who still has everything intact when one’s a woman.  When ‘Lia’ was a man, he was ranked #462 as a swimmer whereas a woman, he’s ranked #1.  Go figure.  Who thinks this sort of crap is FAIR?
  27. 2022 Friday Z: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw- Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1743 what with a $113 million jackpot on the line: 11, 19, 28, 46, 47, and Mega 05.  Out of 73,449 winning tickets, the highest winners were two people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,102 apiece.

  58. 2018 Saturday: In north-eastern Nigeria in Konduga, three suicide bombers kill 18 people.  Ah, got to love the ‘religion of peace,’ no?  Elsewhere, in Swansea, United Kingdom, a 4.4-magnitude earthquake strikes the British Isles, the strongest in a decade.
  59. 2019 Sunday: In the streets of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, thousands protest in the streets over government corruption and inflation.  What else is new?  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is facing massive pushback from Democrats and RINO Republicans alike following his Friday declaration of a National Emergency along the southern border.  He did this as Congress refuses him funds for the extremely necessary border wall.  Maggots.
  60. 2020 Monday: Disheveled old crone, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, continues braying about President Trump being ‘impeached for life,’ that he ‘was not acquitted’ as ‘without a trial’ there can be no acquittal.  What should be clear to everyone is that this haggard old wretch should undergo impeachment herself because she has clearly lost her mind.  We hope in November 2020 the good people of her district will vote her out of office and send her home to sit in a rocking chair, a shawl covering her sagging shoulders, and that someone will turn on reruns of Matlock while spoon-feeding her chicken noodle soup.  We place part of the blame on her for convincing that Punjab POS Sundar Pichai to close our two Google  Blogger sites, simply because she won the Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Say it ain’t so, Speaker Pelosi!  Meanwhile, additional negative information continues coming out on former New York City Mayor “Mini” Mike Bloomberg showing him disparaging farmers and factory workers all the while crowing about ‘stop and frisk’ taking down minority thug kids in his city.  What a bum.
  61. 2020 Monday A: Yesterday, it was 1,100-plus former Department of Justice officials demanding U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr over his request for Justice and for the judge in the Roger Stone case to reconsider the harsh sentence being imposed.  Today, it’s more than 2,000 former DOJ employees which tells you just how many hardcore leftists we have in the Justice Department.  Roger Stone does not deserve prison.  Period.
  62. 2021 Wednesday: 29 of the Biden Regime: THE BIG NEWS OF THE DAY- RUSH LIMBAUGH HAS SUCCUMBED TO LUNG CANCER AT AGE 70.  ALTHOUGH NONE OF US EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING YOU OVER THE PAST THREE DECADES-PLUS, WE ALL FEEL AS THOUGH YOU WERE A PERSONAL FRIEND.  GOD BLESS AND WE WILL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  63. 2021 Wednesday A: After being slammed since he entered office for pulling back from America’s Middle Eastern allies- primarily Israel and Saudi Arabia- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Joe reached out to Israel today.’  Wow.  Good for you, Chi-Com Joe!  Meanwhile, the Biden administration scraps a deal his predecessor made with ICE and Border Patrol unions that gave them VETO POWER over any misguided presidential decisions such as Joe Biden throwing open the southern border and allowing illegal aliens to stream in like lice off a dead dog.  In other Joe Biden news, the 46th president is under fire for his ‘soft-as-hell’ policies on the Chi-Coms.  He won’t go near the rampant human rights abuses in communist China, a place where institutional rape of Uighur Muslim women continues around the clock, a place where religious and ethnic minorities find themselves locked up in ‘job training centers.’   Come on, man, say something, Joe!  Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘Joe is more or less spewing Chi-Com propaganda by not calling his masters out for their atrocious dismissal of human rights abuses in that country.’ 
  64. 2021 Wednesday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, bloggers in that country must now receive approval from the communist government before they comment or put-up posts speaking about the law, the military, and/or politics.  In other Far East news, the citizens of Myanmar are throwing up roadblocks and protesting the military junta that took control of their country, locked up their civilian leaders, and is allowing loads of prison scum out into the streets to terrify the nation’s citizens. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday C: In Utah, the move to censure freshman RINO Senator Mitt Romney for voting to convict former President Donald J. Trump is gathering steam.  Within a span of about 36 hours, the movement has gained more than 5,000 signatures.  Meanwhile, the GOP is going to target the highly disliked teachers’ unions in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Governors should fire these losers like President Ronald Reagan fired striking air traffic controllers.   Speaking of teachers’ unions, a billboard in Sonoma County, California, tells it like it is: “HAVE YOU SEEN OUR MISSING KIDS (referring to students), LAST SEEN ON MARCH 13, 2020?  Elsewhere, following last week’s vote of 15-8 in the South Carolina State Senate, the state’s House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill limiting abortions.  Once an ultrasound detects a fetal heartbeat, NO abortions can occur.  Period. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday D:  In New York, a bipartisan push to force the criminal Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to share ALL information on the more than 9,000 nursing home deaths in the Empire State from his COVID-19 policies.  Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding answers NOW.  Yet, this slope-headed cretin won’t apologize nor admit fault for the massive number of deaths that occurred on his watch, especially when President Donald J. Trump provided him with loads of help.   In other state news, In other Cuomo news, baby brother Chris, a dimwit on CNN, is also getting blasted for remaining mum on the outrages older brother Andrew has committed in New York.  Typical leftwing family member bums.  Georgia passes a bill that increases the penalties for violence committed by mobs which means Antifa and Black Lives Matter human garbage may soon find themselves in the joint. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday E: The Biden administration says the U.S. is going to pay the World Health Organization $200 million it claims the nation owes.  Everything Trump did, Biden is overturning (well, Barack Obama is overturning).  Speaking of overturning things, Joe Biden is backing away from the TikTok ban which means the Chi-Coms will be able to begin harvesting information from America’s young people being the dimwits they are.  Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, calls for harmony among members of the Grand Old Party.   Elsewhere, the NASA Mars Rover is set to deploy to the surface of the Red Planet tomorrow.  Next, former Texas Governor Rick Perry says, ‘Texans don’t want the federal government controlling their power grid.’  Hell, no one should want that, especially a freedom-loving state like the Lone Star State.  Speaking of the crazy winter weather sweeping through the region, at least 26 people have died in the storms.  Elsewhere, well-known high IQ genius Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke says, “Texas is a failed state.”  It requires a dimwit to see failure.  The only failure is that Austin allowed Green New Deal morons to push their bogus renewable energy sources.
  68. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,678,891 confirmed cases, +432,687, 2,423,443, confirmed deaths, +12,988, and 61,717,022 confirmed recoveries, +284,639.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,030,330 confirmed cases, up 64,545 from yesterday’s reporting, 492,947 confirmed deaths, UP 1,831, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last three-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 164,356 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  69. 2021 Wednesday G: 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: 3,498,760 confirmed cases, 47,446 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 333,185 confirmed cases, 4,777 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia: currently, they have 555,592 confirmed cases, 7,075 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 734,575 confirmed cases, 5,441 confirmed deaths, and 673,908 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Italy: 2,735,591 confirmed cases, 94,171 confirmed deaths, and 2,251,734 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, we learned today what we already knew: the Chi-Coms spearheaded a massive disinformation campaign to cover up their role as the ORIGINATORS of the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Go figure.
  70. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,613.02, UP 90.27 points (+0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,965.50, DOWN 82.00 points (-0.58%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,931.33, DOWN 1.26 points (-0.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,775.10 per troy oz., +2.30 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $27.45 per troy ounce, +0.13 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,262.30 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.37%) while the price of COPPER is $3.82 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,369.20 per troy oz, -18.50 (-0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.72 per barrel, +0.58 (+0.95%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.22.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000019 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, Australia says the new rules regarding search engines and social media sites to pay for their news feeds is working out well. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday I: In other exciting news, the wife of Kim Jong Un made her first public appearance in more than a year.  Meanwhile, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3535 with a prize of $21 million on the line: 20, 26, 39, 40, 46, and Mega 19.  Out of 99,136 winning tickets, the highest winners were EIGHT people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $2,263 apiece.  Here are the results for tonight’s Powerball Drawing #821 with a $68 million prize up for grabs: 01, 15, 21, 32, 46, and Powerball 01.  Out of 47,168 winning tickets, te highest winners were 28 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $483 apiece.

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…


Thursday, February 17, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] 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.

[ii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iii] 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.

[iv] 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.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

47. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2022

Next, Senator Tom Cotton says that it’s ‘time to send troops guarding the Capitol home.’

  61. 2018 Friday: In the wake of massive anti-government protests, Ethiopia declares a state of emergency.  Light ‘em up.  Elsewhere, in Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s investigation into Trump-Russia collusion continues, Steve Bannon- strategist for Donald J. Trump- is called before the tribunal to answer questions for the inquisitors.  Democrats pin their hopes on this show trial BS as a means of getting their enemy out of office and into prison.  As the farce continues, 13 Russian nationals from the Internet Research Agency undergo formal accusation by the Mueller team for supposedly interfering in the 2016 Presidential Election.
  62. 2019 Saturday: India’s new high-speed train breaks down on its inaugural run, its return trip to New Delhi.  Elsewhere, Heather Nauert, spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State withdraws from consideration to become the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Meanwhile, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un announces that he will be arriving in Hanoi, Vietnam, for the upcoming second summit between Kim and President Donald J. Trump.  Finally, Boko Haram thugs attack civilians in Maiduguri, Nigeria, killing at least people via suicide bombers and wounding numerous others.  The ‘so-called religion of peace’ strikes yet again.[vi]
  63. 2020 Sunday: Members of the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strike again, this time in Pansi, Burkina Faso, when gunmen storm a church, lighting up the church killing at least 24 people and wounding loads of others.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Elsewhere, COVID-19, aka the Chi-Vi, continues running amok around the world with 71,000 reported cases globally.  However, after fierce efforts to help passengers aboard cruise ships, many are finally repatriated to their home countries.   Meanwhile, 1,100-plus former Department of Justice employees call on Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr to resign.  This BS arose after AG Barr asked the Justice Department to reconsider the sentence being imposed on President Trump’s friend, Roger Stone.  It was unfair, people, for a man his age with no prior convictions.
  64. 2021 Tuesday: Day 28 of the Biden Regime: the first disturbing thing we learned today is that Joe Biden is not the person speaking with foreign leaders but his ‘vice president,’ Ms. Kamala Harris.  What does this tell us?  Something is not right with the ‘46th president.’  Speaking of Old Joe, now that the impeachment trial has ended, the Democrats are going to pivot back and begin working on the ‘Biden agenda.’  Goody for us.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ is in talks with Amazon.com to obtain help in rolling out the Chinese Virus vaccine.  From before the election, Joe said he ‘had a plan.’  So far, no plan is evident anywhere.  Something else he promised today via his mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is that protections for forbearance and foreclosure protections are to continue for those harmed by the Wuhan Virus pandemic.
  65. 2021 Tuesday A: In Washington, D.C., Capitol Hill police officers a vote of NO confidence for their current leaders.  Nancy Pelosi should be among the no confidence vote; after all, we alleged she had a BIG HAND in what happened on January 6, 2021.  Next, Senator Tom Cotton says that it’s ‘time to send troops guarding the Capitol home.’  Meanwhile, Senator Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, says the “Capitol Hill riot was NOT an armed insurrection,” which is simply was not.  The people did not carry firearms and other weapons- other than the Antifa and Black Lives Matter infiltrators- no matter how much liberal news media and squalling Democrats claim it was.   Meanwhile, Louisiana Congressman Bennie Thompson, Democrat, debuted a portion of the Democratic strategy to continue pursuing Donald Trump.  This POS filed a lawsuit against Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani for ‘instigating the January 6, 2021, mob action at the capital.
  66. 2021 Tuesday B: A Los Angeles County supervisor announces that schools be reopened this week as COVID-19 cases have miraculously gone down.   Meanwhile, numerous governors across the nation have signed a letter to Joe Biden demanding he fix the botched rollout of the coronavirus vaccine.  States want to reopen NOW.   Next, beleaguered New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo still won’t apologize for the more than 9,000 deaths he caused in the Empire State nor will apologize for hiding data showing the true figures of all the people HE killed in nursing homes.  You see, patients that tested positive for the Panda Pandemic and were removed to the hospital were then returned to the very same nursing home where they then infected everyone else, many of whom died.  We believe this was purposeful, to eliminate what the Nazis called ‘useless eaters,’ people who absorbed the state’s resources without giving anything back in return.  Civilized countries do not behave this way but left-wing morons sure the hell do.  Cuomo should be in an orange jumpsuit pounding away at rocks.
  67. 2021 Tuesday C: Former Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz, Republican, says he is considering primarying Senator Mitt Romney in 2024.  We sure the heck hope the state finds a way to remove the Trump-hating POS.  Next, Texas State Senator Paul Bettencourt, 7th State Senate District, says, “Texas is going to remain RED.”  Elsewhere, the GOP of Maine is considering censuring Senator Susan Collins for voting to impeach former President Donald J. Trump.   Meanwhile, the Biden White House says it supports Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s plan to launch a 9-11-style commission to ‘investigate the TRUTH behind the January 6, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots.   Finally, former Senator David Perdue, R-GA, files the paperwork to challenge Senator Raphael Warnock in 2022 and get his old seat back.
  68. 2021 Tuesday D: Iran denies any responsibility for the rocket attack in Iraq the day before, one that killed a private contractor and wounded a U.S. servicemember.   Meanwhile, a North Korean manages to cross through the DMZ separating his country and the neighboring South Korea.  They believe him to be a defector.  We feel badly for his family in the North.  Elsewhere, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Joe Biden is going to ‘recalibrate U.S. relations with Saudi Arabia and that Old Joe will- at some point- call Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to see what’s up, dog?’
  69. 2021 Tuesday E: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,463,210 confirmed cases, +395,652, 2,416,661, confirmed deaths, +11,115, and 61,541,518 confirmed recoveries, +246,066.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,014,875 confirmed cases, up 75,283 from yesterday’s reporting, 492,385 confirmed deaths, UP 1,723, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least three 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 162,525 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.
  70. 2021 Tuesday 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: 3,490,585 confirmed cases, 47,141 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,606 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 331,305 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Massachusetts: currently, they have 560,576 confirmed cases, 15,567 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?
  71. 2021 Tuesday G: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 734,575 confirmed cases, 5,441 confirmed deaths, and 673,908 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- Spain: they have 3,096,343 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 65,979 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of 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!
  72. 2021 Tuesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,522.75 UP 64.35 points (+0.020%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,047.40, DOWN 47.98 points (-0.34%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,932.59, DOWN 2.24 points (-0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,791.20 per troy oz., -7.80 (-0.43%) while the price of SILVER is $27.30 per troy ounce, -0.03 (-0.11%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,269.40 per troy oz, -10.20 (-0.80%) while the price of COPPER is $3.83 per pound, -0.00 (-0.07%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,388.20 per troy oz, +5.60 (+0.24%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.78 per barrel, -0.27 (-0.45%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 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, thanks to the Chi-Coms, airline passengers in the U.S. dropped by 20-percent in 2020.
  73. 2021 Tuesday E: Burmese police (military thugs) charge imprisoned democratically elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi with a ‘good one.’  They have accused her of violating the country’s natural-disaster management law, previously used against people who violated coronavirus restrictions.  The military who detained Suu Kyi on February 1, already faces charges for illegally importing walkie-talkies and could hold her indefinitely in prison sans charges.  Protesters in the country continue defying the military and demand her release.  
  74. 2021 Tuesday F: In Texas, winter storm conditions are trashing the Lone Star state what with 4 million Texans in the dark due to crumbling windmills and solar farms, neither of which are able to produce energy in a freak winter storm like this one that snow piled up across the state.  Rotating blackouts (welcome to California) make matters even worse and at present, at least 10 people have died in the insane wintry conditions.  In Washington, D.C., Joe Biden has issued a disaster declaration so FEMA can mobilize and begin providing citizens of the state with the life-saving aid they need.  Maybe the winter storms will stop the illegal alien invasion along the border with Mexico.   
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: The U.S. urges the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels to stop conducting cross-border raids into Saudi Arabia and to stop drone attacks on Saudi infrastructure and civilians and to join in U.S.-backed peace talks to bring peace to the region.  However, since Secretary of State Anthony Blinken removed the Houthis from the list of terrorist groups, the jihadist Shiite group has stepped up attacks on Saudi Arabia.  You know, we should sell some neutron bombs to the Saudis and permit them to do what they must do: eliminate this terrorist threat.   In other exciting news, the Office of the 45th President put out a lengthy statement in which, he slams- rightfully so- Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell for being the lowlife POS that he is. 
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: The Massachusetts Climate ‘Czar’ David Ismay resigned today after video of him holding a Zoom call with similar bozos in Vermont surfaced.  Apparently, Mr. Ismay believes that ‘seniors on fixed income, average citizens, and privately owned cars for energy usage and CO2 emissions’ and went onto say that average citizens and seniors would have to suffer in order to reach the draconian Green New Deal goals imposed on this people of this once prosperous New England state.    Once again, we see the insensitivity of liberals and RINOs who could care less about average folks and the vulnerable among us so long as they continue pushing this self-enrichment scheme not just in our country but around the world.  Look at flipping Texas, folks, home of massive quantities of domestic energy yet people, their pets, and livestock are freezing in this arctic chill that is trashing the Midwest all because they put far too much emphasis on RENEWABLE sources of energy which are half-assed at best.  It’s time to throw the Green New Deal and every a—hole connected to it out of office and into the dumpster of snake oil salespersons.   
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1634 with a $96 million on the line: 01, 36, 44, 54, 66, and Mega 10.  Out of 77,861 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO mega for a prize of $134,768.
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: In the final news for the evening, Governor Gavin Newsom of California is allowing mail-in ballots to EVERY California voter for 2021.  The question is, WHY would the soon-to-be-former governor do this?  Because he is going to lose his seat.  However, we will say this: IF Newsom somehow survives the recall election- NO one will ever have to doubt that the 2020 Elections were indeed stolen, in the presidential election and the Senate seats in Georgia and the one in Michigan.  This will be rock-solid proof that the ONLY reason WHY anyone would resort to mail-in ballots is because they are going to steal an election.  What are you going to do, Governor Newsom?  Are you going to prove that Democrats and RINOs manipulate and steal elections or are you going to go down like a man?   
  79. 2022 Wednesday: Stay tuned…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album guitar virtuoso Richard Thompson released is a collection of his crème de la crème acoustic tunes.  “Acoustic Classics II” came out on August 10, 2017, and featured a collection of tunes culled from his solo albums, both ‘solo’ and with ex-wife, Linda Thompson as well as with Fairport Convention, the band from whence the legend sprang long, long ago.  The music is fabulous and the collection concise which is why we encourage everyone who has yet to avail themselves of the amazing music of this idiosyncratic axman should do so now.  Seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in music and add it to your collection- you will be extremely glad you took our advice.

TODAY IN HISTORY, WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 16, 2022, BLOG POST #4,436

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

Tuesday, February 16, 2021, Today in History:  

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…

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] 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.

[iii] This is a HOKEY pseudo-science, much like palm-reading and tarot cards to forecast the future.  The Sun is the prime driver of climate change across our Solar System, no matter what that crackpot loony tunes, pot-smoking loser, Bill Nye the ‘Science Guy’ claims.  Climate on all nine planets (yes, Pluto is a planet) is driven by or the lack of solar flares, sunspots, and solar winds.  Do not allow leftist scumbags to terrorize you into believing something that simply that is impossible for humanity to cause.  Consider this: in the previous century, s-o-o-o many bombs were dropped, so  many artillery shells rained down upon humanity, and so many nuclear weapons tests below ground, at ground level, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans occurred and yet, here we are.  Next time some loser attempts to frighten you into surrendering all of your liberties to ‘save the planet,’ tell them to go suck an un-circumcised schlong and to shut the f**k up.  You will feel much better.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing

[v] Many people believe that President Barack Hussein Obama deserves an asterisk after his name in the history books seeing as how he never cleared up the matter of his birthplace.  Yes, he did present a birth certificate of sorts, but many contend it was a forgery and that he should be removed completely from the history books of the United States.

[vi] Islam.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  60. 2021 Sunday: First of all, following his one-week suspension without pay by White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, misogynist and bully Deputy Press Secretary T.J. Ducklo offers his resignation.  Good riddance.  Speaking of the ‘Biden administration,’ progressives are demanding the ‘Biden Justice Department’ pursue now acquitted not once but twice Donald J. Trump.  We surmise the reason for this is (1) because they hate the former president; (2) angry as hell (all the time); (3) have no clue as to how to push their agenda (which very few want); and (4) are mostly crazy, loony, feeble, or plain stupid so they need someone upon whom to divert attention away from them and onto the target.   Folks, we make a bold prediction: this administration- one that ‘won’ via questionable circumstances- is going to crash and burn far sooner than even they believe and are going to become a laughingstock not just here in our country but around the world.  Speaking of Mr. Trump’s victory, his impeachment lawyers said, “We’re going to Disney World!”  Have a wonderful time!
  61. 2021 Sunday A: The Biden White House warns Vice President Kamala Harris’ niece- Meena Harris- to stop linking her personal brand to the sitting vice president.  This is wrong so they are prohibiting (other than for Hunter Biden and his uncles and aunts- they’re okay).   Speaking of Vice President Harris, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says based upon the precedent the reprobate Democrats set in the SECOND UNWARRANTED IMPEACHMENT OF THE 45th PRESIDENT, once the GOP retakes the House of Representatives and reclaims the Senate (hopefully without keeping “Mitch the Maggot” McConnell in a position of leadership- he has to go) because she has said and done things that qualify her for kangaroo court impeachment.  So, too, does enfeebled old Joe- send him packing.   Meanwhile, recent in polls in California show that not only is dimwit Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom and Los Angeles Mayor Eric “Keep Everything Locked Down” Garcetti, but also Senator Dianne Feinstein’s approval ratings have hit their lowest mark ever- down in the thirties.  Poor Di-Fi.  What do all three have in common?  They’re Democrats.
  62. 2021 Sunday B: In the glorious metropolis of New York City, after four stabbings in the subway of homeless people- two of whom died- forever-wasted Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Democrat, has sent 500 members of the NYPD into the underground tunnels to keep order.  Now, they NEED the cops.  Wow.  Speaking of NYC, we learn that mayoral candidate Andrew Yang, failed presidential primary candidate, has a campaign manager with close ties to jihadist/activist Linda Sarsour.  This should disqualify Mr. Yang as of YESTERDAY.  Speaking of Anti-Semites, since Joe Biden ‘won’ on November 6, 2020, he has had phone calls with 10 world leaders (or whoever’s in his earpiece has)- including the Chi-Coms (who own him), Russia, and others- BUT NOT with Israel.  Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reached out early to Mr. Biden but so far, the ‘Biden administration’ has not responded.  This is NOT good.  Israel is our number one ally in the region but the Anti-Semites in the progressive wing of the Democrat Party HATE the world’s sole Jewish state. We expect the BDS movement will return on steroids.
  63. 2021 Sunday C: RNC Chairperson Ronna McDaniel chides the Democrats for wasting so much time chasing a white whale- the impeachment of Donald Trump a second time- instead of working on things the American people need and demand.   Speaking of the GOP, the Louisiana Grand Old Party censures Senator Bill Cassidy for voting to convict President Donald J. Trump.  His counterpart, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski recognizes the danger she’s in in the 2022 Mid-Terms because she, too, voted to convict and the state GOP and the voters are pissed off at her.  We think former Governor Sarah Palin should primary the closet Democrat in 2022.   In similar news, the North Carolina GOP immediately censured Senator Richard Burr for his vote to convict.  He is retiring because like his former Senate colleagues Jeff Flake, R-AZ, and Little Bob Corker, R-TN, he knows he cannot win.   Mark Walker is running to take his seat in the primary.   Finally, another disgruntled loser, Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska is quoted as saying, “Tribalism is a hell of a drug.”  You need to go, too.  Oh- one other thing- Peter Navarro says that ‘Mike Pence’s betrayal of President Trump on January 6 will be seen as the worst in history.’  We agree.
  64. 2021 Sunday D: The Minnesota Court of Appeals drops a motion to delay the start of former Minneapolis Police Department Officer Derek Chauvin.  Might as well get it over with, folks.  Meanwhile, in Connecticut, people remember slain Yale graduate student, shot to death by an unknown perp.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Supreme Court clears the way for the extradition of an American father and son to Japan for trial.  The pair helped former Nissan Motor Company Chairman Carlos Ghosn so he could evade trial on financial misconduct charges.  Michael and Peter Taylor- the father and son- hid Ghosn in a box on a private jet back in 2019 and got him into Lebanon, a country with no extradition treaty with Japan.  They’re in trouble.
  65. 2021 Sunday E: The Pentagon is looking to automate its warplanes and warships.  Cool.  Meanwhile, Tesla announces that its electric semitruck will have a 500 KWH battery pack that should enable the truck to travel long distances following heavy loads.  Question for Elon Musk: what about the Hyperloop?  Would not the Hyperloop from one end of the country to the other be the fastest way to transport human beings, animals, and cargo?  Come on, man!   In other news, Toni Breidinger becomes the first woman of Arabic descent to compete in the Indy 500.  Although she came in 18th place, it’s still a great debut and she hopes others will follow in her footsteps. 
  66. 2021 Sunday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 108,715,375 confirmed cases, +273,125, 2,397,312, confirmed deaths, +6,864, and 60,986,298 confirmed recoveries, +193,753.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,837,755 confirmed cases, up 12,678 from yesterday’s reporting, 488,674 confirmed deaths, UP 212, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly two weeks now.  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 moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 158,969 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  67. 2021 Sunday G: 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: 3,479,029 confirmed cases, 46,865 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 331,033 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Michigan: currently, they have 628,956 confirmed cases, 16,119 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 724,380 confirmed cases, 5,388 confirmed deaths, and 655,519 confirmed recoveries.
  68. 2021 Sunday H: Speaking of the Wuhan Virus, the U.S. has deep concerns over the origins of COVID-19 in communist China, especially after the World Health Organization has tried to protect their bosses in Beijing.  National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan is concerned about the WHO claiming there’s ‘insufficient data to link the Chi-Com Virus to the Chi-Coms’ as well as the fact Beijing continues trying to tie the U.S. Army to the crimes THEY committed.  One thing the WHO did admit to is that the number of cases in Wuhan were 500-percent higher than the Chi-Coms reported.    
  69. 2021 Sunday I: In Oregon, four people who have received all vaccinations for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu have now tested positive for the virus.  Uh, okay?   Across the country, about 38 million people have received all injections of the vaccine.  Meanwhile, an aide of New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo cover up the numbers of deaths in the Empire State’s nursing homes is now going to work for the Biden administration and work on the same flipping thing.  These people should be in prison.  Together.  Oh- the Obamacare exchanges are going to reopen but without additional funding so the site can hire additional staff with which to peddle the greatest boondoggle in the history of the United States.  In other fascinating news about COVID-19, since Philadelphia locked down in March 2020, there have been 2,200 shootings and 500-plus homicides.  This year, they have already seen 60 people killed.  They blame this on the Chinese Virus, you know, the “Panda Pandemic.”
  70. 2021 Sunday J: In other interesting news from around the world, the people of Myanmar are dealing with a crime wave not seen since the last time the junta of generals took control of the government.  The junta has emptied many thugs from the prisons and have inserted them into the crowds of peaceful protesters demanding the release of their elected leaders and a restoration of their democratically-elected government.  The freedom-loving people say the infiltrators cause violence so things can get out of control  which then allows the military to crack down even harder.  We hate to say this, but it sounds sort of like what happened in the United States on January 6, 2021, when peaceful protesters walked to the Capitol and then mobs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter criminals stormed the Capitol, the one that NO one reinforced, even though weeks before, President Trump offered up to 10,000 National Guard troops.  Now we have walls around the Capitol and troops walking the streets.  Sounds rather like what’s going on in Yangon, Myanmar.
  71. 2022 Monday: Folks, stay tuned for whatever is to come next…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “The Essential Collection: Who Knows Where the Time Goes?”- came out on January 31, 2017, and featured a delightful collection of tunes from this legendary British folk-rock group.  Of all British bands of this nature, Fairport Convention- and the Strawbs- have gone the distance and what a distance it has been.  It must be horribly tough for archivists to cull through hours and hours and hours of music to compile this three-disc set, seeking the perfect tidbit, the perfect nugget, the perfect audio keepsake for fans- novice and veteran alike- to cherish forever.  We hope you will visit your favorite site for the absolute best in rock and popular music and consider adding it to your collection.  We think you will be extremely glad that you did.  Seek it out now.

2020 Thursday E: Christine Mohr, former canine officer in Maryland’s Prince George County publicly thanked President Donald J. Trump for her full pardon. Following an incident in 1995 when her police dog bit a burglary suspect, she received a 10-year prison sentence over a ‘civil rights violation’ when her dog bit the punk. What the f**k is wrong in this country when cops are sent to prison over stupid-assed shit?

  58. 2019 Tuesday: Following the release of ‘explosive emails’ regarding the phone call between President Donald J. Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the Democrats in the Senate are demanding ‘impeachment witnesses.’  This din of demands for witnesses will reach a cacophony over the next couple of weeks as the Democrats want the Senate to do the job, they were unable to do: find evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump.  Meanwhile, President Trump blasts the cruel treatment of Roger Stone and Gen. Mike Flynn and dodges questions as to whether he will pardon them or he won’t.

  60. 2020 Thursday A: Black pastors condemn Senator Kelly Loeffler’s attacks on the ‘Reverend’ Raphael Warnock as an attack on the ‘BLACK CHURCH.’  It’s not an attack on the ‘Black Church,’ it’s an attack on a Marxist.  Are black churches “Marxist?”   Regarding the two Senate run-off races in Georgia, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says he ‘won’t name anymore Cabinet picks until January.”  He is afraid that if he continues naming leftists, people will vote GOP- which we hope they do.
  61. 2020 Thursday B: A recent USA poll says that ’50 percent of Americans see President Donald J. Trump as a failed president.’  This means that 50-percent of Americans see him as ‘successful.’  (He also is considering a special counsel to look into 2020).  Speaking of Fake News outlets, Fox News Channel ratings have dropped an astounding 30-percent.  Wow.  We’re surprised that that’s all.  Another poll down in Georgia says, ‘women voters are split among the senatorial candidates.’  Why?  Warnock is an angry black communist and Jon Ossoff is a pro-Chi-Com closet queen.  Neither of these two should appeal to any woman worth her salt.  
  62. 2020 Thursday C: The GOP says, “NO” to President Trump’s demands for $2,000 stimulus checks for each American instead of giving money to foreign countries and the despicable illegal aliens raping our country.  What’s up with this, Republicans?  Meanwhile, newly pardoned Roger Stone rebukes the ‘Soviet-style show trials’ conducted by the Democrats and their hirelings on the courts.  Look at what they’ve done to the patriots who served the 45th president like Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, Ret. U.S. Army.  It was criminal what they’ve done to him.  Even better, Roger Stone plans on suing the FBI, James Comey, Bill Barr, Robert Mueller III, and his gang of hacks, as well as the Department of Justice.  You go, Roger, you go!  Speaking of Attorney General Barr, he left office on this date.   Barr first took his post as the 85th AG on February 14, 2019.  His successor- Acting U.S. Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen- assumed office on this date and would serve until January 02, 2021.
  63. 2020 Thursday D: The Kremlin says new U.S. sanctions could complicate Nord Stream 2’s completion.  Ah, well.  CISA (Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency) say that the hacks of the SolarWinds digital security provider are affecting state and local governments the most.  Many believe Russia’s cyber attacks must be viewed as nuclear strikes.  Let’s light those backwards M-F’ers up.  Speaking of Russia’s boss, communist China, the Chi-Coms are launching an antitrust suit against THEIR company, Alibaba.  Curious.  Elsewhere, Great Britain and the European Union finally reach agreement on Brexit.  About time.
  64. 2020 Thursday E: Christine Mohr, former canine officer in Maryland’s Prince George County publicly thanked President Donald J. Trump for her full pardon.  Following an incident in 1995 when her police dog bit a burglary suspect, she received a 10-year prison sentence over a ‘civil rights violation’ when her dog bit the punk.  What the f**k is wrong in this country when cops are sent to prison over stupid-assed shit?  Elsewhere, Wall Street executives are fleeing New York City for south Florida for its weather and its low taxes.  Go figure.  Meanwhile, Maryland authorities investigate the explosion that occurred yesterday at the Baltimore Gas and Electric building that toppled the roof and sent 21 people to the hospital.
  65. 2020 Thursday F: South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem says she ‘won’t primary’ RINO Republican Senator Jon Thune in 2022.  Meanwhile, Representative Ted Budd, R-NC, joins the GOP-led effort to REJECT the 2020 Presidential Election’s Electoral College votes due to the rampant voter fraud and corruption exhibited by elected officials.  Excellent.   Elsewhere, Democrat Congressman Rick Larsen of Washington state becomes the latest politician infected with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Hydroxychloroquine works extremely well, sir.  Speaking of the Chi-Com Fever, the Russians claim- get this- that while they were working on the so-called ‘Sputnik vaccine’ to use against their Chi-Com masters’ lab-engineered pandemic, they also have a prototype vaccine for HIV-AIDS.  Who wants to be first in line for that crap?   
  66. 2020 Thursday G: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 79,226,905 confirmed cases, +755,130, 1,739,456, confirmed deaths, +13,497, and 44,628,688 confirmed recoveries, +408,889 (same number as reported a week ago).  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 18,829,110 confirmed cases, UP 220,038 from yesterday’s reporting, 332,145 confirmed deaths, UP 2,973, and 8,270,113 confirmed recoveries, UP 44,542.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 389,502 confirmed cases, 3,170 confirmed deaths, and 354,616 confirmed recoveries.
  67. 2020 Thursday H: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous, anti-communist American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 2,012,960 confirmed cases, 23,635 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 20,749 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 234,832 confirmed cases, 3,245 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Wisconsin- currently, they have 500,443 confirmed cases, 4,956 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Tony Evers- leftwing POS.
  68. 2020 Thursday I: Due to all the people becoming ill with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- the Pelosi Pox, nurses are sending out an SOS for additional help.  They are being overrun at the moment.  Meanwhile, much of continental Europe as well as the Empire State are closing off air travel from Great Britain (and some are closing off travel from South Africa) due to the new strain of the Wuhan Virus Crisis that is now running amok in the UK.  Although said NOT to be as lethal as the original strain of COVID-19, it is highly more contagious which means more people sickened requiring greater resources.  SOMEONE TELL US THAT THE CHI-COMS DID NOT DO THIS ON PURPOSE!  Stop bitching about Russia, the country to nuke is communist China NOW (or infect them with one of our own biowarfare agents).  Meanwhile, as leftists in the United States are urging minorities to receive the virus before whites as some sort of sick form or reparations, Chef Bea O’Malley of the AICPENDBLOG.COM says, “We’ve been down this road before.  When white people are telling black people they need to take some medication, it’s time to watch the heck out because we’ve been there, done that, and it never works out well for us.”  Amen, Bea, amen.
  69. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,199.87, UP 70.04 points (+0.23%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,804.73, UP 33.62 points (+0.26%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,703.06, UP 13.05 points (+0.35%).  The price of GOLD is $1,882.60 per troy oz., -0.60 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.94 per troy ounce, +0.037 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,027.20 per troy oz, -1.70 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $3.57 per pound, +0.009 (+0.25%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,339.10 per troy oz, +16.00 (+0.69%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.30 per barrel, +0.07 (+0.15%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.53 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.86.  On Christmas Eve, let’s have some fun- one-dollar U.S. = 73.86 Russian Rubles. 
  70. 2020 Thursday K: NO Thursday Night NFL game tonight.  The game will be played tomorrow at 1:30 P.M. on Christmas Day- (1) Minnesota Vikings (6-8) @ New Orleans Saints (10-4).
  71. 2021 Friday: Even on Christmas Eve, we don’t stop- we will keep you posted on whatever the Chi-Coms, their foreign allies, and their Democratic stooges in the U.S. are up to today.  Stick around and find out…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Guitar-slinger Richard Thompson went on the road to promote his wonderful album, “Mock Tudor,” which resulted in a live album- “Semi-Detached Mock Tudor”- an album that hit record store shelves on June 15, 2002.  Joining Mr. Thompson (guitars/vocals) are Pete Zorn (multi-instruments), Teddy Thompson (guitars, backing vocals), Danny Thompson (bass), and Michael Jerome (drums).  If you have yet to introduce the music of this long-lived guitarist, this is a superb way in which one can do it.  We hope you will seek it out wherever you shop for the absolute best in rock music- perhaps even going to the artist’s site- and picking it up.  You will be glad you did, undoubtedly.  Seek it out now.

Thursday, December 24, 2020, Today in History:

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…


Friday, December 24, 2021:

ENDNOTES:

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

[ii] We look forward to promoting the music of Thin Lizzy when we promote the music of U2, sometime within the next 4-5 years.  We hope you will be with us when we do.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Mothers of Invention as well as of Frank Zappa, beginning on Monday, 21-January-2013 through Monday, 13-May-2013.  We hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your collection as they are one of America’s finest rock bands.

[iv] Our attitude is such that any illegal alien parent brings their brat along with them- or worse- puts them in the hands of human traffickers- whatever happens to them is on YOU- not us, not Mexico, or anyone else.

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

Swalwell must face expulsion from Congress!

Trump and Attorney General William “Bill” Barr are rushing hurriedly through executions of inmates scheduled to die.  Meanwhile, now that Hunter Biden is under federal investigation for tax fraud, corruption, and for dealing with the Chi-Coms, his father’s pick for attorney-general becomes even more important for son, Hunter.  Many suspect Sally Yates will be the next AG IF Biden wins the 2020 Presidential Election and any and all prosecutions of the Biden Family will vanish.
  56. 2020 Friday A: In Arizona, House Bill HB 2706 would ban trannys from playing on girls’ sports teams.  Of course, the liberals are going bonkers over this.  Next, two U.S. Senators- Josh Hawley of Missouri and Bernie Sanders of Vermont- have united forces to demand a COVID-19, aka Chi-Vi- relief bill be put through to help the American people.  Both House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are opposed to current proposed bills designed to deliver relief to the people of the country.   Meanwhile, the United States plans to emplace sanctions on Turkey for them buying Russian S-400 anti-aircraft missiles systems.  As a NATO member, they are not supposed to buy weapons from hostile states.
  57. 2020 Friday B: The St. Louis prosecutor seeking to send Mark and Patricia McCloskey to prison for having stood in front of their home with a handgun and an AR-15 rifle earlier in the year is doubling down on convicting them.  The sole crime committed by Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey is that they stood their ground in their private neighborhood when an Antifa-Black Lives Matter mob of thugs stormed the neighborhood and threatened to kill, murder, rape, rob, and then burn down their home with them in it along with their pets.  Mr. and Mrs. McCloskey are Democrats but the Democrats in charge in St. Louis do not like white people- no matter their party affiliation- defending themselves from violent mobs with firearms.  Meanwhile, 106 GOP House members have signed on to the Texas-led lawsuit on election fraud although House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has not.  What is up with him?  Speaking of election fraud, a big joint public hearing on election theft and fraud in Wisconsin is ongoing today in Madison, Wisconsin.  More evidence continues coming to light on how bold the Democrats were in stealing the election from Trump in their state.  Elsewhere, radio talk show host, Michael Savage, tells Newsmax that SCOTUS will reject the Texas lawsuit.  What a guy.
  58. 2020 Friday C: As more and more information comes to light about how compromised Congressman Eric Swalwell is thanks to him having had a long-running affair with a Chi-Com intelligence agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, former DNI Ric Grenell tells Newsmax that ‘Beijing has its tendrils deep into the United States, going after politicians and businessmen-and-women.’  It must stop and Rep. Swalwell must face expulsion from Congress and should be prosecuted as was former FBI agent Richard Hanssen who is doing time in federal lockup for having spied for the Soviet Union and then for Russia.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that Muslim men can sue the FBI for placing them onto the No-Fly List.  Elsewhere, the Lone Star State is considering returning to being the independent nation it originally was as lawmakers seek to hold a secession vote that is known as ‘Texit.’  
  59. 2020 Friday D: The U.S. Supreme Court of the United States rejects the multi-state lawsuit headed by Texas regarding the 2020 Presidential Election.  Many believe it’s over now although some still hold out hope for a different outcome even after today’s mind-blowing hearing into election fraud in Wisconsin.   One never knows but for the pro-Trumpers, it’s time to accept that the Chi-Coms, their allies, and their Democratic Party gofers stole the election and put it into the hands of enfeebled “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his running mate, Kamala Harris.  Be careful what you wish for, Chi-Coms, be careful about you what wish…speaking of the rejection, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi says that ‘House GOP members who signed onto the bid- including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy- brought dishonor upon the august body.’  Madam Speaker, every day you draw breath, you bring dishonor to the country.  Shame on YOU.
  60. 2020 Friday E: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 70,025,535 confirmed cases, +541,680, 1,590,323, confirmed deaths, +10,317, and 45,070,225 confirmed recoveries, +381,762.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 16,004,359 confirmed cases, up 289,128 from yesterday’s reporting, 298,796 confirmed deaths, UP 3,346, and 7,284,291 confirmed recoveries, UP 61,479.
  61. 2020 Friday 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: 1,490,879 confirmed cases, 20,636 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 19,315 confirmed cases, 269 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 201,179 confirmed cases, 3,075 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: New Hampshire: currently, they have 29,460 confirmed cases, 590 confirmed deaths, and 22,046 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 353,269 confirmed cases, 2,969 confirmed deaths, and 333,900 confirmed recoveries.
  62. 2020 Friday G: Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 30,046.37, UP 47.11 points (+0.16%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  12,377.87, DOWN 27.94 points (-0.23%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,663.46, DOWN 4.64 points (-0.13%).  Price of GOLD: $1,843.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%).  Here is the price of SILVER: $24.08 per troy oz., -0.017 (-0.07%).  Price of PLATINUM: $1,017.20 per troy oz., -2.40 (-0.10%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,333.10 per troy oz., -4.80 (-0.47%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.53 per #, +0.0065 (+0.18%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $46.56, -0.01 (-0.02%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.54 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.83 euros.  Just for a lark, $1 U.S. = 76.86 Afghan Afghani.
  63. 2020 Friday H: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1615 with a jackpot of $376 million up for grabs: 19, 31, 37, 55, 67, and Mega 25.  Out of 88,153 winning tickets, the highest winners were four people who had four numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,912 apiece.
  64. 2020 Friday I: Here is where we were one year ago: Folks, we encourage everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party- along with the Canucks, the Iranians, and the Russians are up to today.  You know they’re up to no good, sons-of-bi****s.  Here’s a good one: Chi-Com state-run media blasts the U.S. in general and the Trump administration in particular for criticizing its ‘stellar record on human rights.’  Chi-Coms, you are akin to the Nazis.         
  65. 2021 Saturday: Stick around…

  61. 2020 Thursday: The Senate GOP warned President-Elect “Pro-China Joe” Biden not to send whack-job leftists to Capitol Hill for Cabinet positions.

Elsewhere, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, safely re-elected to his seat tells the Trump legal team, “You have to prove your claims of rampant voter fraud.”  What a POS.  Speaking of voter fraud, after yesterday’s contentious hearings in Lansing, Michigan, regarding rampant voter fraud, similar hearings are occurring today in Atlanta, Georgia.
  62. 2020 Thursday A: President Donald J. Trump is NOT ruling out firing Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr who seems to be MIA when it comes to doing anything about the rampant voter fraud we have observed from one end of the country in key battleground states such as Nevada, Georgia, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, and Arizona. Elsewhere, U.S. Navy Secretary Kenneth Braithwaite told the Senate Armed Services Committee that Vladimir Putin’s Russia has ‘re-militarized the Arctic.’  Not good.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Census Bureau has uncovered data glitches that are pushing back the release of its findings until sometime in February 2021.  It’s all about the illegal aliens.   Finally, DNI John Ratcliffe implores President-Elect Joe Biden NOT to politicize America’s intelligence-gathering agencies and to admit openly that communist China is the world’s number one threat.  
  63. 2020 Thursday B: The United Nations says the Chi-Com Bat Virus has pushed 32 million people around the world into EXTREME POVERTY. Meanwhile, Dr. Tony Fauci is briefing President-Elect “Pro-China Joe” Biden on the Kung Flu.  In addition to this, three former presidents announce they will take the vaccine on live TV.  Speaking of the infamous Chi-Com Virus, here are today’s numbers:
  64. 2020 Thursday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus, the Wuhan Horseshoe Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox: Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 64,723,945 confirmed cases, +430,498, 1,497,093, confirmed deaths, +8,772, and 44,644,198 confirmed recoveries, +386,188.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 14,070,404 confirmed cases, UP 85,657 from yesterday’s reporting, 276,670 confirmed deaths, UP 1,027, and 6,785,085 confirmed recoveries, UP 29,069.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 339,619 confirmed cases, 2,883 confirmed deaths, and 325,660 confirmed recoveries.

Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 18,342 confirmed cases, 244 confirmed deaths, and as of last week, NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 177,929 confirmed cases, 2,979 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: South Dakota- currently, they have 82,203 confirmed cases, 1,033 confirmed deaths, and NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence says the U.S. is ‘days away from the distribution of a vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’  Excellent, ONLY the Trump-Pence administration could have accomplished something as monumental as this.
  66. 2020 Wednesday E: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 29,969.52, UP 85.73 points (+0.29%).

  68. 2020 Thursday G: President Donald J. Trump awards the Congressional Medal of Freedom to former Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz. Great coach of a legendary team that never seemed to lose many games back in the 1980s.  Speaking of President Trump, he is planning to be in Georgia on Saturday campaigning for Senators David Purdue and Kelly Loeffler.  Elsewhere, federal law enforcement raid a house in Houston, Texas, in which, human traffickers are holding numerous illegal aliens naked, dirty, and afraid in cages.  String the traffickers up!
  69. 2020 Thursday H: We encourage everyone to stick around to uncover what scurrilous shenanigans the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party underlings are up to today- you know you are as curious as are we… we must hold the Chi-Coms, the Canadians, the Iranians, and the flipping Russians accountable for what they have done to our country, Canadians first.  Canada has declared WAR on us.  Send us your Dominion bosses so we can grill the living f**k out of them.   
  70. 2021 Friday:  Tonight, we have Mega-Millions so stick around and see what the results are.

Were it not for the Wuhan Bat Flu this year, I doubt we would have as many BIG CITY MAYORS on the list like we have this year but all of them are deserving of the award

Thursday, December 03, 2020, Today in History:

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…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to offer the music of Black Sabbath sometime in the next decade.

[ii] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[iv] We are not sure when we will promote the music of .38-Special but will do so when we do a big shindig for Southern rock bands.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] We promoted the music of the Who and of its individual band members beginning on Monday, 03-August-2015 through Sunday, 29-November-2015.  We hope you will seek out the music of this veteran British band as well as of Pete Townsend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon, and Roger Daltrey.  We know you will enjoy them.

[vi] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vii] The sad thing about this story is that the NYPD was only acting on orders from City Hall that wanted to bush illicit street merchants such as Mr. Garner who were not paying their fair share to the city in taxes.  Mr. Garner gave us the phrase, “I can’t breathe!”  Overweight and fighting the cops, he died in the struggle.

[viii] Senator Harris entered the race on January 21, 2019, doing so on the 90th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  Prior to her (in order) the following Democrats dropped out: (1) Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-CA; (2) Gov. John Hickenlooper, D-CO; (3) Gov. Jay Inslee, D-WA; (4) Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass.; (5) Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY; (6) Mayor Bill Di Blasio, D-NY; (7) Rep. Tim Ryan, D-OH; (8) Former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke, D-TX; and (9) Mayor Wayne Messam, D-FL.
