  55. 2017 Thursday: According to On This Day, scientists at Cal-Tech publish an article in the journal, “Current Biology,” of the first brainless animal, the jellyfish Cassiopeia, that actually ‘sleeps.’  Most scientists believe that only animals gifted with brains sleep, as it is a normal function for creatures with thought processes.
  56. 2018 Friday: Trembling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford offers to testify before the U.S. Senate on the allegations of rape and sexual abuse she launched against President Donald J. Trump’s second U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  It would later turn out that she was a liar as were other women- most notably those turned up (or out) by thug attorney, Michael Avenatti.  It was all a scheme to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation and drive him from the nomination.  It didn’t work.
  57. 2019 Saturday: In Indonesia’s Jambi Province, skies go bright red as the worst illegal forest fires since 2015 blaze away, destroying more than 800,000 acres and causing respiratory distress for more than a million citizens.  They need Smokey the Bear. 
  58. 2020 Monday: Tropical Storm Beta is expected to attain hurricane status when it arrives on the Texas gulf coast at some point late today/early tomorrow.  Meanwhile, outside Los Angeles, the Bobcat Fire doubles in size thanks to warm winds breathing new life into it.  Next, on the other side of the country, New York City Transit officials say yesterday’s derailment of a subway train occurred due to vandalism.  No one was hurt but it’s clear that Antifa/Black Lives Matter is extending its reach when it comes to terrorism. 
  59. 2020 Monday A: Moving on, the Biden-Harris (or is it Harris-Biden) 2020 campaign announces it has $466 million in its coffers, having pulled in more than $100 million in the previous 48 hours by milking the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whereas the Trump-Pence campaign as $325 million on hand.  Speaking of President Trump and Justice Ginsburg, the commander-in-chief announces he will nominate his replacement pick for Justice Ginsburg on Thursday or Friday of this week.  All the while, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi promises to impeach President Trump- again!- should he fulfill his constitutional duty to nominate someone to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.   Meanwhile, well-known genius Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC says that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, moves forward with hearings on the nominee, that he ‘is playing with fire.’  Yikes.
  60. 2020 Monday B: Speaking of angry Democrats, the Dems say they are going to (1) end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate on EVERYTHING meaning every vote will be decided by the nuclear option, 50-percent plus one.  (2) They will give statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columba.  Why not give statehood to the U.S. Virgin Islands, to Guam, to Northern Marianas Islands, and to American Samoa.  (3) They plan to stack the Supreme Court with an additional five to seven justices.  (4) They plan to topple the Electoral College.  (5) They plan to increase taxes by $3 TRILLION as well as to reimpose the Obamacare mandate, all the rules and regulations overturned and removed by the Trump administration, and jump back in to the JCPOA, the Paris Climate Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  (6) They are going to grant the franchise to prisoners serving time, to felons, and to 15-and-16-year-olds.  What more can we say?  We must crush this illegitimate, Chi-Com colluding political party.  It is us or them.
  61. 2020 Monday C: Famed NBA star and noted ‘genius’ LeBron “Full of Fecal Matter” James of the Los Angeles Lakers chides Lori Loughlin, actress, and her husband who must go to prison for having bribed the university of their daughter’s choice to get her in, for allowing Loughlin to choose the facility.  LeBron says ‘it ain’t right.’  Elsewhere, a survey finds that unless Chinese Virus relief issues are soon met, 60-percent of all restaurants will close their doors forever.  Imagine all the real estate the Chi-Coms will be buying via shadow companies, straw buyers, and of course, their Democratic Party hacks.
  62. 2020 Monday D: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr labels three cities in the United States as anarchist jurisdictions- New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, for permitting and enabling out-of-control riots, mob violence, looting, rape, robbery, arson, and murder.  The AG said: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest.  We cannot waste federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance.”  The federal government seeks to strip these cities who have crippled their law enforcement via defunding or reduction so as to force them back into line.  New York City currently receives about $7 billion annually from U.S. taxpayers.  This must stop. Strip Portland and Seattle of their funding, too, until they regain their senses, or the voters replace them.   
  63. 2020 Monday D: A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled today that mail-in election ballots can be counted for up to SIX DAYS post-Election Day so long as they are postmarked on Election Day.  Bret Baier on FNC believes this will go to the Supreme Court to be overturned or put into law.  Meanwhile, President Trump is on the trail in the Midwest, stopping in Ohio and traveling elsewhere while “Pro-China Joe” Biden visited Wisconsin, there to try to re-energize his flagging base.  Question is, WHO is the real string-puller behind former VP Biden?  We suspect it’s none other than Xi Jinping and that Rep. James Clyburn is the conduit through which the alleged cash flow goes.  Think about it: Biden was at the bottom of the Democrats’ heap until Clyburn vouched for him, impeachment failed, the U.S.-Sino Trade Deal signed and then the Chi-Com Flu arrived on scene.  We don’t believe in coincidences nor should YOU.

  74. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– A report says that another 6,000 Haitians are tramping north through Mexico to Bidenville under the Del Rio, Texas, overpass.  This sounds like a job for napalm.  Just saying.  Anyhow, violence is breaking out in towns in their path as the Haitians fight one another to get on any available transportation north.  Here are the numbers from One America News for today.  First, here is the cost for caring for the invaders for just this day: $533,574,040.  Second, here is the cost for this year of caring for Joe Biden’s new citizens: $288,752,762,880.  Here are the numbers of illegals who have swarmed across the U.S.-Mexico border for 2021: 2,959,484.  Fourth and final, here are the numbers- conservative ones, mind you, of the illegals lurking in the country as you read this: 36,959,484.  We believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Speaking of this disaster, today is Day No. 180 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of defending the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 87 since she visited the border.  Where can we get a ‘no-show job’ like the one this loser has?  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, says of Joe Biden that he ‘doesn’t even pretend on the border’ meaning he does not tell us everything is good and well when every American sees it for him-or-herself on live TV.  As the border continues its implosion, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-TX 1st congressional district, lambasted Joe Biden today and said of his border policies that they are ‘ridiculous.’  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, calls the lack of a sound policy, “Insane.”
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Russian President Vladimir Putin won’t be coming to New York City to attend the U.N. General Assembly.  No, he will get his message across via diplomatic channels.  Speaking of Russia, we learned today that the Federal Bureau of Investigation delayed helping the victims of the recent Russian hacking attacks.  The question is, “WHY?”  Next Portugal has granted the Afghan girls’ soccer team asylum as their home country continues to implode under Islamism.  Meanwhile, up in Canada, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau- son of one of the Rolling Stones- manages to cling to power at the head of a minute minority drastically weakened by his ignorant policies.  To get things done, the communist PM will have to engage with other political parties.  This should be fun.
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $43.92 (2) AstraZeneca $59.13 (3) Johnson & Johnson $164.53 (4) BioNTech $341.35 (5) Moderna $434.04.  Even as the FDA says there is NO need for Chi-Vi booster shots, Johnson & Johnson now claims that their new booster shot is ’94-percent effective.’  How can they claim this when their original shot was down in the mid-forties?  There has not been enough time for them even to know so we encourage everyone to avoid the Johnson & Johnson shots as if their lives depended upon it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.11 (2) General Dynamics: $191.19 (3) Boeing: $208.51 (4) Lockheed Martin: $336.05 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $345.14.

  80. 2021 Tuesday L: Artificial (Fake) Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News– (1) Beyond Meat: $112.23 (2) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $62.78 (3) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $26.85.
  81. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I- Joe Biden delivered a canned speech to the United Nations today.  It would appear he took some of his anti-senility medicine, some of son Hunter’s crack as he was able to get through it without completely breaking down.  He called on world leaders to ‘pull together to solve global problems’ all the while giving them the nod-nod, wink-wink to send Third World castoffs to invade the United States.  Speaking of feeble Joe, a new poll shows that 62-percent of Iowans think that Joe is doing a horrible job.  Add to that the fact that the House Dems are seeking to limit the poor old fool’s presidential powers.  You know, the Dems would love to transform the presidency into a prime ministerial gig.
  82. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– Joy of joys!  The White House is rolling a new plan with which to combat homelessness.  Wow.  Meanwhile, as the various multi-trillion bills continue bumping up against the deadlines, the House Dems throw Joe Biden a bone by passing a stopgap spending bill that will keep the American government open until December 01, 2021.  Wow.   In other shocking news, the House Dems stripped funding from the bills they are trying to shove through to Joe Biden’s desk that will go to helping Israel protect itself with the Iron Dome missile defense system.
  83. 2021 Tuesday O: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation- A Customs and Border Patrol officer who attended the Justice for January 6 rally won’t be charged.  Still, Rep. Adam “Bug Eyes” Schiff, DS-CA 28th congressional district, says the committee charged with ‘investigating’ the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, could possibly go directly to sending out subpoenas which means they want to tarnish the reputations of many, patriotic Americans while continuing to vilify President Donald J. Trump.  Oooh, scary, “Bug Eyes.”
  84. 2021 Tuesday P: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Well-known government apparatchik and professor, Anthony Codevilla, died today at age 78.  He is best remembered over his strenuous objections to the life sentence imposed on Jonathan Pollard, the man who handed classified intelligence over to U.S. ally, Israel.  Pollard eventually was released on parole in 2015 and after fulfilling the obligations imposed upon him, he emigrated to Israel.
  85. 2021 Tuesday Q: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1696 what with a $x million jackpot on the line: 36, 41, 45, 51, 56, and Mega 13.  Out of 150,280 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $18,952 apiece.  In Washington state where Chef Vladdie lives, one person got all five numbers and the Mega for a prize of $432,000,000.
  86. 2022 Wednesday: Friends, whenever we call the Chi-Coms out our numbers tend to suffer but I am going to continue with my thoughts anyway on the outcome of a Chi-Com invasion of Taiwan.  Most of us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM tend to believe that Taiwan- FREE CHINA- is an undeclared nuclear power and why not?  Back on September 22, 1979, which is tomorrow, a U.S. satellite detected a double flash in the South Atlantic well below South Africa.  Most surmise it was a nuclear weapons test either by South Africa or Israel or possibly a joint operation.  We, however, believe Taiwan was the nation conducting the test and much evidence points in that direction.  It would make sense that a technologically superior Taiwan was working at building a clandestine nuclear weapons program because at some point in the future, the Chi-Coms would come-a-calling being the bullies that they are.  We suspect any approaching invasion fleet would find itself in deep trouble if underwater nukes were detonated several yards beneath the flotilla.  Virtually every vessel, submarine, and troop transport in the area would be swamped with tsunamis the likes of which the world has never witnessed.  Aircraft carriers, warships, transports, virtually an entire fleet would disappear along with every soldier, sailor, marine, and airman as did the Mongol fleet that disappeared in a massive tsunami while attempting to invade Japan centuries ago.  This would be enough to cause Xi Jinping and his cronies to be strung up in the streets and who knows?  Perhaps freedom would return to the mainland and peace in Asia ensue?  Sure, at some point the world needs to obliterate that overweight hog, Kim Jong-Un but that little POS is a piker compared to Chairman Xi, the wannabe world dictator.  Let me know your mind- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Cheap Trick delivered its next studio album- “Standing on the Edge”- on July 19, 1985.  The album featured their original producer Jack Douglas back at the control panel.  Once again, the band delivered a spirited group of rockers and of course their pop-ballads.  “Tonight, It’s You” received a great deal of airplay and is among the best tunes the band has ever done.  The lineup remains Robin Zander (lead vocals and rhythm guitar), Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), and Jon Brant (bass, backing vocals).  Joining the Illinois-based rockers is Mark Radice on keyboards.  We hope everyone will seek this album out at their favorite site for the absolute best in music because let’s face it: the AICPENDBLOG.COM offers nothing but the best in music.  You won’t find f**king Maroon 5, you won’t find twerking whores, you won’t find has-been lesbians, and you won’t find young men who aren’t sure as to whether they are men or chicks.  It is what it is and we thank you for joining us here daily.

92. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 02, 2022

2021 Friday: TOP STORY OF THE DAY- An apparent member of the Nation of Islam- 25-year-old Noah Green- accelerated his vehicle into a barricade manned by Capitol Hill law enforcement on the U.S. Senate side of Constitution Avenue. One officer- William Evans- died in the event as did the suspect when he leapt from his smoking car with a machete and was shot dead for his troubles. It’s sad for the Left as we are sure they would have taken great delight in identifying the dead perp as a member of the Trump inner circle when in reality, it was one of the Left’s countless tools.

  58. 2003 Wednesday: In Chiswell, Nottinghamshire, England, soul rocker, Edwin Starr, dies at age 61 from a heart attack.
  59. 2004 Friday: The Islamic terrorists involved in the attack on Spain’s railway, their so-called ‘9/11” (March 11, 2004), attempt to attack the Spanish high-speed train, AVE, near Madrid; however, Spanish authorities stop them in their tracks, no pun intended.
  60. 2005 Saturday: After 26 years and 168 days, Pope St. John Paul II concluded his time as pontiff on this date.  He first became the Vicar of Christ on October 16, 1978, and with President Ronald Reagan and British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher toppled the Soviet Union.
  61. 2010 Friday: Rescuers at a Shanxi mine in communist China are attempting to reach 153 trapped miners.  They report hearing signs of life including tapping, banging, and voices calling for help.  Family members of the trapped miners have been angry with local government believing they have consigned these people to their fates.
  62. 2011 Saturday: With the Arab Spring underway, the North Korean government decides that it had better crackdown on computers and other electronics that could broadcast news of what is going on elsewhere around the world thus causing problems for their brand of crackpot communism.  Anyone with unsanctioned devices, well, three generations of their family will end up in the gulags.
  63. 2012 Monday: Three widows and two daughters of Osama bin Laden were charged with illegally living in Pakistan; they were sentenced with 45 days in jail and fined $114 each.  Elsewhere, British Prime Minister David Cameron- speaking on the 30th anniversary of the Falklands War- refers to it as a ‘profound wrong.’  This followed a still angry Argentina threatening action against UK banks and their tacit ally in the conflict, the United States.
  64. 2013 Tuesday: The Arms Trade Treaty, the first-ever bill to regulate the global trade in conventional weapons, is passed by the U.N. General Assembly.  Meanwhile, in Tamaulipas, Mexico, authorities discover nine mutilated bodies in the trunk of a car.  How nice.  Moving on, in Peshawar, Pakistan, seven people are killed in a terrorist attack on a power station.  Finally, Uruguay passed legislation legalizing homosexual marriage on this date.
  65. 2014 Wednesday: In the United States, the National Security Agency—aka the NSA—announces that it has been using a legal loophole by which, it monitors, collects, and stores millions of phone records and emails of the American people.  Thank you, President Obama, for authorizing this outrage!  Meanwhile, the United States Supreme Court ruled that limits on the total amount of money individuals can give political candidates and political action committees were unconstitutional.  Elsewhere, Fort Hood reports a shooting on the base.
  66. 2015 Thursday: After being lost at sea for 66 days, rescuers find 37-year-old South Carolina man, Louis Jordan.  He had gone sailing in an antique sailing boat, which capsized and to which, he clung.  He survived on rainwater and fish he managed to catch while being adrift.  Elsewhere, at the Garissa University in Kenya, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, kill 140 people and wound countless others.  Worthless scumbags.
  67. 2016 Saturday: As the migrant crisis continues to ravage Europe (thanks to Germany’s Angela Merkel welcoming illegal immigrants to labor in the Fatherland’s factories), Austria says, ‘enough is enough’ and tells Italy that they are going to deploy troops on their mutual border because they don’t want any more Muslim migrants and refugees tramping through their country from their southern neighbor.  Who can blame them?   They intend to put troops in the Brenner Pass.  Just like World War I, Austrian and Italian friction.  Some issues never mend…
  68. 2017 Sunday: A custodian and several confederates at the Muslim shrine at Sargodha, Pakistan, takes the lives of 20 and leaves numerous others injured.  Thank you, “religion of peace.”  Elsewhere, media is under attack in Mexico and in Ciudad Juarez, the fabled newspaper Norte, publishes its final print edition seeing as how things are flipping crazy in that part of the country.
  69. 2018 Monday: In the 80th NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship Game, Villanova whips Michigan 79-62.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump lambastes the Chi-Coms for possessing the chutzpah to put retaliatory tariffs of up to 25-percent on 128 American products including American wines and pork products.  This is in response to the U.S. having slapped tariffs onto Chinese imports of both steel and aluminum, two poorly made Chi-Com products they have habitually dumped into the U.S. sans any blowback- until now.
  70. 2019 Tuesday: Climatologists claim that Canada is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, increasing 2.3% in the northern environs of the country.  Green New Deal lovers are dancing in the streets at the news.  Meanwhile, NASA lays out plans to return to the moon in 2024 and to put astronauts on Martian soil by 2033.  Meanwhile, Google +, a highly popular social media app (although Google says different) begins deleting its user accounts.  People had wonderful sites in perhaps one of the best social media platforms but Google- since they blew the 2016 Presidential Election notified its users in late 2018 that it was going to shut down the site due to low user activity and vulnerabilities that- if we are to believe them- were too difficult to fix.  They were too LAZY to fix them IF they existed.  Google shut down nothing else…scumbags.[viii]  
  71. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19 continues running amok around the world.  The Democratic Party has postponed its 2020 Convention until mid-August with the GOP following them on August 24 through the 27th.   In the United States, we currently have 226,300 confirmed cases with many more to be sure plus about 5,300 confirmed deaths.  The Guardian claims there are more than 750,000 confirmed cases worldwide with the death toll skyrocketing to over 36,000.  Unemployment numbers for the previous week double the prior week by coming in at 6.6 million new unemployment claims.  Some economists project as many as 20 million additional unemployed by the time we hit May.  Cloward and Piven would be delighted.  Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces he will go back to the well in China so he can buy some of their top-of-the-line ventilators.  Does no one ever learn?  Food banks in the United States report a 92% jump in people seeking food thanks to the Wuhan Virus.   On a lighter note, Egypt reports a spike in ISIS attacks in the northern Sinai.  We say, “Crucify them!”
  72. 2021 Friday: TOP STORY OF THE DAY– An apparent member of the Nation of Islam- 25-year-old Noah Green- accelerated his vehicle into a barricade manned by Capitol Hill law enforcement on the U.S. Senate side of Constitution Avenue.  One officer- William Evans- died in the event as did the suspect when he leapt from his smoking car with a machete and was shot dead for his troubles.  It’s sad for the Left as we are sure they would have taken great delight in identifying the dead perp as a member of the Trump inner circle when in reality, it was one of the Left’s countless tool. The self-proclaimed ‘follower of Farrakhan’ has had his Facebook page ripped down from the Internet within 30 minutes.  Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, says it would be great if Joe Biden called for unity when (or if) he addresses this tragic event.  Still, we expect whatever portion of Fort Pelosi was removed last week will be redoubled this week with more calls for a U.S. infantry and armor division patrolling the Capital city of the United States.
  73. 2021 Friday A: JOE BIDEN NEWS– A mentally challenged Joe Biden held his first Cabinet meeting today and instead of celebrating the qualifications of its members as President Donald J. Trump did, he celebrates the diversity of its members. “It’s look like America,” crowed the president but can they do the job, Joe?  That is what we want to know.  Meanwhile, in a recent interview, Hunter Biden- the drug-addled family money-launderer says that the ‘controversial laptop could very well be his, he just doesn’t remember.’  Wow.  Next, Joe Biden (or the voice in his ear) asked his Education secretary if he has the legal right to forgive ALL federal student loan debt.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden says he’s going to hold indirect talks with Iran.  That ought to be good.  Finally, he has been in talks with the Ukraine- shaking them down again, there, Joe?
  74. 2021 Friday B: JOE BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE– Shocking videos showing cartel human traffickers tossing children under the age of 5 over the 14-foot-high border wall continue to emerge and still, the Biden administration will do nothing to prohibit the ongoing illegal alien invasion.  Even more distressing, illegal border crossings have risen to a 15-year-high and yet old Joe Biden sits in the basement playing pocket pool.  Yikes.   Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, says that ‘Joe Biden could solve the border crisis by denying entry to all adult illegal aliens.’  Amen.  Even more shocking is that ONLY 33-percent of U.S. Hispanics believe that what Joe Biden is doing along the border is the ‘right thing.’  Next, Houston, Texas, the Drug Enforcement Agency reports a massive spike in fentanyl trafficking what with wide open borders.
  75. 2021 Friday C: SECOND AMENDMENT/GUN NEWS– 2nd Amendment rights activists are calling for the prosecution of Hunter Biden over HIS lying on an FBI background gun check.  He said he did NOT use drugs on the form and folks, which is a felony.  What does it take to send this loser to prison?  Elsewhere, always belligerent Hillary Rodham Clinton says that the United States has a ‘gun worshipping problem.’
  76. 2021 Friday D: COVID-19 NEWS– As the White House continues seeking ways by which it can force vaccine passports onto the American people but NOT to force them being shown when one votes, propaganda continues to rise.  Oh, we need mandatory proof of one’s China Virus vaccination so one can participate in normal life but when it comes to protesting and voting, no proof of vaccination or even face masks is important.  A load of festering fecal matter, folks.  Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, signed an executive order today prohibiting any type of COVID-19 vaccination documentation.   Meanwhile, feeble old Joe Biden wants to vaccinate every frigging illegal alien as they pour into the country sans any kind of charge, yet another give-away for which, the American taxpayer will have to pay.  
  77. 2021 Friday E: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– A major rail catastrophe occurred in the Republic of China today- the free and independent Taiwan- when a speeding passenger train exiting a tunnel plowed into a truck that was somehow on the tracks and came off the tracks.  At least 50 people died in the accident with hundreds more injured.  Next, the U.S., Japan, and South Korea commence talks on North Korea.   Moving on, Russia hammers Twitter with a major fine for failing to remove tweets calling for Russian opposition protests.
  78. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– North Dakota declares a statewide emergency as raging wildfires threaten hundreds of homes thus forcing mass evacuations.   Next, the NYPD now allows the smoking of marijuana in public.   Moving on, today is Day 5 of the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Elsewhere, seven Texas police officers have been fired in the death of a black jail inmate.  Finally, the U.S. Army is investigating the theft of a National Guardsman’s rifle in Washington, D.C.
  79. 2021 Friday G: ECONOMIC AND BUSINESS NEWS– the U.S. reportedly has added 916,000 new jobs and has brought unemployment down to 6-percent.  Still, millions of Americans remain on unemployment assistance due to the Chi-Vi but it’s a sign that things may be improving.   Meanwhile, Tesla reports that its 1st quarter production and delivery numbers far surpassed expectations.  Elsewhere, with the visit of Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga to Washington, D.C., the U.S., and Japan hope to solve a supply chain problem with the manufacturing of microchips.  Soon, two factories will be up and running in the American Southwest.
  80. 2021 Friday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrissey slams the Biden administration for the COVID-19 Porkulus Relief Bill that prohibits any state receiving ‘relief monies’ to offer its citizens tax cuts.  AG Morrissey calls this condition, “Unconstitutional.”  Meanwhile, actress Rose McGowan found herself suspended from Twitter after mocking the easily mockable ‘women’s empowerment summit’ held by former President Bill “Corndog” Clinton and “Kooky Kamala” “Sleep-Her-Way-to-the-Top” Harris.  Mocking this sham ‘summit’ as well as mentioning “Corndog” Clinton’s close ties to Jeffrey Epstein got her banned.  Elsewhere, security experts say that ‘Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure slush fund does nothing to combat cybersecurity threats faced by the United States.’  Thanks, Joe.
  81. 2021 Friday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– We knew it was inevitable, Major-League Baseball has stripped BOTH this year’s All-Star Game in Atlanta, Georgia, as well as the MLB draft because of the new voting law.  What a bunch of losers, NO more baseball for us.  Elsewhere, unrepentant communist Angela Davis tells a bunch of prep school students to dismantle capitalism, the system that has made her somewhat wealthy.  Next, Notre Dame’s rector says it will require 15-to-20 years to fully restore the fire-ravaged cathedral.
  82. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 129,761,772 confirmed cases, +729,489, 2,830,055  confirmed deaths, +11,814, and 73,546,720 confirmed recoveries, +348,535.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,731,414 confirmed cases, up 117,822 same as yesterday’s reporting, 558,213 confirmed deaths, UP 1,726, and 118,601,727 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix] 
  83. 2021 Friday K: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 231,003 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States– feeble old Joe, in another one-to-two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  FROZEN FIGURES TODAY…
  84. 2021 Friday L: 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: 3,671,557 confirmed cases, 59,370 confirmed deaths (less than yesterday’s), and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,064,517 confirmed cases, 33,493 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,888 confirmed cases, 460 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 368,049 confirmed cases, 5,316 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Massachusetts, the home of Boston Cream Pie (the one with pineapple and cherries): currently, they have 638,339 confirmed cases, 17,217 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Here’s one- Governor Phil Scott, RINO-VT, is trying to make the left happy by setting up vaccine distribution based solely on RACE.
  85. : FOREIGN OVERSEAS COVID-19 NUMBERS– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 833,456 confirmed cases, 6,220 confirmed deaths, and 820,703 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Lebanon, home of the world’s largest nonnuclear explosion: 471,962 cases of the virus, 9,286 confirmed deaths and 373,833 confirmed recoveries.[x]  You know, it’s been a while, is anyone curious as to what the figures are in COMMUNIST CHINA, the home of this diabolical, election-stealing viral s**t: the Chi-Coms claim to have 90,217 confirmed cases, same number of deaths for months now, 4,636, and 85,394 confirmed recoveries.  This is frigging embarrassing people.  Screw them.
  86. 2021 Friday N: LIMITED ECONOMIC NEWS DUE TO GOOD FRIDAY– Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.56 Chinese yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.29.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Brunei dollars, one greenback equals 1.35.  In Bulgarian Lev, one U.S. dollar equals 1.66 of theirs.[xi]  Ether rises as rally in cryptocurrencies continues unabated.
  87. 2021 Friday O: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.908 per gallon, $2.855 in Florida, $3.696 in Hawaii, and $3.332 in Washington state.  Let’s look at one other state: Alaska- $3.125.[xii]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,124,503,272,831, something that continues growing by leaps and bounds like syphilis running amok in a camp of homeless drug-addicted leftists.  Sad, incredibly sad, which is why we must resist every goal, every push by the left to subjugate our country to their perverse brand of liberal despotism.
  88. 2021 Friday P: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– A new report suggests that Twitter and Facebook employees donated exclusively to Democrats.  No surprise here, everyone knows this.  Next, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken seeks Israel’s ‘mutual treatment of Palestinians.’  In Israel, Israeli Arabs live a life far better than the ones lived by their counterparts in the Gaza Strip.  Go figure.
  89. 2021 Friday Q: MEGA-MILLIONS– stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1647 with a $168 million jackpot on the line awaiting some lucky guy or gal to reel it in…here are the numbers: 10, 42, 48, 53, 62, and Mega 19.  Out of 80,495 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $5,400 apiece.

358. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2021

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.
  59. 2020 Thursday: As if restaurant workers already don’t have enough problems, the Labor Department is considering a law that will force tip employees- as long as they make minimum wage which they have since the 1980s- share their tips with the BACK OF THE HOUSE EMPLOYEES.  This is crazy, they already MUST declare their tips as part of their wages which has cost tip workers loads of money but now, this is even more insane.  This cannot happen.  Where is that dingbat, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez? 
  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.

  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).

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.

  51. 2017 Thursday: According to On This Day, scientists at Cal-Tech publish an article in the journal, “Current Biology,” of the first brainless animal, the jellyfish Cassiopeia, that actually ‘sleeps.’  Most scientists believe that only animals gifted with brains sleep, as it is a normal function for creatures with thought processes.
  52. 2018 Friday: Trembling Dr. Christine Blasey Ford offers to testify before the U.S. Senate on the allegations of rape and sexual abuse she launched against President Donald J. Trump’s second U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh.  It would later turn out that she was a liar as were other women- most notably those turned up (or out) by thug attorney, Michael Avenatti.  It was all a scheme to destroy Kavanaugh’s reputation and drive him from the nomination.  It didn’t work.
  53. 2019 Saturday: In Indonesia’s Jambi Province, skies go bright red as the worst illegal forest fires since 2015 blaze away, destroying more than 800,000 acres and causing respiratory distress for more than a million citizens.  They need Smokey the Bear. 
  54. 2020 Monday: Tropical Storm Beta is expected to attain hurricane status when it arrives on the Texas gulf coast sometime late today/early tomorrow.  Meanwhile, outside Los Angeles, the Bobcat Fire doubles in size thanks to warm winds breathing new life into it.  Next, on the other side of the country, New York City Transit officials say yesterday’s derailment of a subway train occurred due to vandalism.  No one was hurt but it’s clear that Antifa/Black Lives Matter is extending its reach when it comes to terrorism.  Moving on, the Biden-Harris (or is it Harris-Biden) 2020 campaign announces it has $466 million in its coffers, having pulled in more than $100 million in the previous 48 hours by milking the death of Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg whereas the Trump-Pence campaign as $325 million on hand.  Speaking of President Trump and Justice Ginsburg, the commander-in-chief announces he will nominate his replacement pick for Justice Ginsburg on Thursday or Friday of this week.  All the while, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi promises to impeach President Trump- again!- should he fulfill his constitutional duty to nominate someone to fill a vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court.   Meanwhile, well-known genius Alexandria “The Fly” Ocasio Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC says that if Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, moves forward with hearings on the nominee, that he ‘is playing with fire.’  Yikes.
  55. 2020 Monday A: Speaking of angry Democrats, the Dems say they are going to (1) end the filibuster in the U.S. Senate on EVERYTHING meaning every vote will be decided by the nuclear option, 50-percent plus one.  (2) They will give statehood to Puerto Rico and the District of Columba.  Why not give statehood to the U.S. Virgin Islands, to Guam, to Northern Marianas Islands, and to American Samoa.  (3) They plan to stack the Supreme Court with an additional five to seven justices.  (4) They plan to topple the Electoral College.  (5) They plan to increase taxes by $3 TRILLION as well as to reimpose the Obamacare mandate, all the rules and regulations overturned and removed by the Trump administration, and jump back in to the JCPOA, the Paris Climate Accords, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership.  (6) They are going to grant the franchise to prisoners serving time, to felons, and to 15-and-16-year-olds.  What more can we say?  We must crush this illegitimate, Chi-Com colluding political party.  It is us or them.
  56. 2020 Monday B: Famed NBA star and noted ‘genius’ LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers chides Lori Loughlin, actress, and her husband who must go to prison for having bribed the university of their daughter’s choice to get her in, for allowing Loughlin to choose the facility.  LeBron says ‘it ain’t right.’  Elsewhere, a survey finds that unless Chinese Virus relief issues are soon met, 60-percent of all restaurants will close their doors forever.  Imagine all the real estate the Chi-Coms will be buying via shadow companies, straw buyers, and of course, their Democratic Party hacks.
  57. 2020 Monday C: U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr labels three cities in the United States as anarchist jurisdictions- New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, for permitting and enabling out-of-control riots, mob violence, looting, rape, robbery, arson, and murder.  The AG said: “When state and local leaders impede their own law enforcement officers and agencies from doing their jobs, it endangers innocent citizens who deserve to be protected, including those who are trying to peacefully assemble and protest.  We cannot waste federal tax dollars to be wasted when the safety of the citizenry hangs in the balance.”  The federal government seeks to strip these cities who have crippled their law enforcement via defunding or reduction so as to force them back into line.  New York City currently receives about $7 billion annually from U.S. taxpayers.  This must stop. Strip Portland and Seattle of their funding, too, until they regain their senses, or the voters replace them.   
  58. 2020 Monday D: A federal judge in Wisconsin ruled today that mail-in election ballots can be counted for up to SIX DAYS post-Election Day so long as they are postmarked on Election Day.  Bret Baier on FNC believes this will go to the Supreme Court to be overturned or put into law.  Meanwhile, President Trump is on the trail in the Midwest, stopping in Ohio and traveling elsewhere while “Pro-China Joe” Biden visited Wisconsin, there to try to re-energize his flagging base.  Question is, WHO is the real string-puller behind former VP Biden?  We suspect it’s none other than Xi Jinping and that Congressman James Clyburn is the conduit through which the alleged cash flow goes.  Think about it: Biden was lost until Clyburn vouched for him, impeachment failed, the U.S.-Sino Trade Deal signed and then the Chi-Com Flu arrived on scene.  We don’t believe in coincidences nor should YOU.
  59. 2020 Monday E: Folks, here are the numbers for the Wuhan Waltz, you know, COVID-19 Chinese Bat Flu Virus Crisis, the pandemic they started but blame on the U.S.:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 31,120,980 confirmed cases, +261,911, 961,656, confirmed deaths, +3,342, and 21,287,328 confirmed recoveries, +188,233.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,932,317 confirmed cases, up 68,463 from yesterday’s reporting, 202,982 confirmed deaths, UP 573, and 3,723,573 confirmed recoveries, UP 18,066.  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: 789,717 confirmed cases, 15,029 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,534 confirmed cases, 120 confirmed deaths, and 4,759 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 86,317 confirmed cases, 2,131 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Michigan- currently, they have 129,662 confirmed cases, 6,982 confirmed deaths, but for some unknown reason NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- what more do you need to know about Democratic hack Governor Gretchen Whitmer?  Her husband can take his boat out on the lake but anyone else- YOU better watch out!  Let’s look at Israel’s numbers now that Mo and his wife have moved there: 190,929 confirmed cases, 1,273 confirmed deaths, and 136,780 confirmed recoveries.
  60. 2020 Monday F: BAD DAY for stocks today, all because of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,147.70, DOWN 509.72 points (-1.84%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,778.80, DOWN 14.48 points (-0.13%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,281.06, DOWN 38.41 points (-1.16%).  Price of GOLD: $1,918.30 per troy oz., +7.70 (+0.40%). Here is the price of SILVER: $24.84 per troy oz., +0.458 (+1.88%).  Price of PLATINUM: $883.90 per troy oz., +7.80 (+0.89%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,281.70 per troy oz., -99.10 (-4.16%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.04 per #, +0.0045 +-0.15%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $39.62, +0.31 (+0.79%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.81 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.
  61. 2020 Monday G: Sadly, today Tommy DeVito- original guitarist/vocalist with the Four Seasons (would eventually be known as Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons)- lost his battle with the lab-engineered Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  DeVito died in Las Vegas, Nevada, at age 92.  He was with the Four Seasons from 1960-1970.  
  62. 2021 Tuesday: As always, we do not know what yet is to come but when we discover what the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party patsies are doing today, you will be the first to know so please- stick around…

Trump lambastes the Chi-Coms for possessing the chutzpah to put retaliatory tariffs of up to 25-percent on 128 American products including American wines and pork products.  This is in response to the U.S. having slapped tariffs onto Chinese imports of both steel and aluminum, two poorly made Chi-Com products they have habitually dumped into the U.S. sans any blowback- until now.
  63. 2019 Tuesday: Climatologists claim that Canada is warming at twice the rate of the rest of the world, increasing 2.3% in the northern environs of the country.  Green New Deal lovers are dancing in the streets at the news.  Meanwhile, NASA lays out plans to return to the moon in 2024 and to put astronauts on Martian soil by 2033.  Meanwhile, Google +, a highly popular social media app (although Google says different) begins deleting its user accounts.  People had wonderful sites in perhaps one of the best social media platforms but Google- since they blew the 2016 Presidential Election notified its users in late 2018 that it was going to shut down the site due to low user activity and vulnerabilities that- if we are to believe them- were too difficult to fix.  They were too LAZY to fix them IF they existed.  Google shut down nothing else…scumbags.[viii]  
  64. 2020 Thursday: COVID-19 continues running amok around the world.  The Democratic Party has postponed its 2020 Convention until mid-August with the GOP following them on August 24 through the 27th.   In the United States, we currently have 226,300 confirmed cases with many more to be sure plus about 5,300 confirmed deaths.  The Guardian claims there are more than 750,000 confirmed cases worldwide with the death toll skyrocketing to over 36,000.  Unemployment numbers for the previous week double the prior week by coming in at 6.6 million new unemployment claims.  Some economists project as many as 20 million additional unemployed by the time we hit May.  Cloward and Piven would be delighted.  Meanwhile, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announces he will go back to the well in China so he can buy some of their top-of-the-line ventilators.  Does no one ever learn?  Food banks in the United States report a 92% jump in people seeking food thanks to the Wuhan Virus.   On a lighter note, Egypt reports a spike in ISIS attacks in the northern Sinai.  We say, “Crucify them!”
  65. 2021 Friday: YOU know the drill.  Let’s hope it’s not a heavy news day…
