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.

Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin hold their final talks in the positions they now hold.   Elsewhere, Hillary Clinton’s main adviser Mark Penn steps down from her campaign as news of his lobbying activities on behalf of foreign nations continues to hit the fan.  Man, that’s the Clintons, no big deal, nothing to see here, everyone move on…

  67. 2020 Monday: The ‘gift from communist China that keeps on giving,’ the Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu, aka the Wuhan Virus, aka the coronavirus continues sweeping the globe causing illness and death- and economic stagnation, if not complete shutdown- wherever it shows up.  Currently, there are 1,347,803 confirmed cases with confirmed recoveries (good news, right?) at 277,402.  Confirmed global deaths sit at 74,807.  In the United States, there are 368,196 confirmed cases what with 10,986 confirmed deaths.  It is difficult to discover what the confirmed recoveries are, but they have to far outrank the deaths, yet the number is hard to uncover which is why the editors at the blog suspect it has something to do with POLITICS.  President Trump, we must reopen the economy because we believe the Wuhan Virus came out of biowarfare laboratories in China with the express purpose of causing economic catastrophe in the United States and other parts of the Free World.
  68. 2021 Tuesday: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– today is Day 12 of “Kooky Kamala” Harris being in charge of the southern border and NO one has seen or heard from the laughing hyena.  Next, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that the administration may resume construction on the southern border wall, not because the administration wants to do it but because of pending lawsuits facing the administration for having put the kibosh on wall construction that was already funded.  Talk about ‘shovel-ready jobs.’  It might be nice if the wall was back online because we have reports of two FBI-sought terrorist suspects crossing the southern border.  From where did they come you ask?  From flipping Yemen. (White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘terrorists crossing the border is very unusual.’  What is wrong with this ditz?  Kayleigh McEnany, we miss you!)
  69. 2021 Tuesday A: WOKEISM / WOKE/ WOKE WOOSIES NEWS– Governor Brian Kemp, R-GA, blasted the WOKIES out there by saying that ‘WOKE activists do not care about the truth.’  Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that the ‘private sector must stop acting like a WOKE parallel government.’  Elsewhere, it’s official, Major-League Baseball is moving the 2021 All-Star Game to Denver, Colorado, where voting laws are stricter than those in Georgia and where the population is predominantly white rather than black in the Peach State.[ix]  That’s stupidity for you.  As we said, NONE of us will be watching or attending MLB games again as long as Commissioner Rob Manfred remains in charge.  F**k him!  Finally, the L.A. Stage Alliance quits after misidentifying an Asian nominee.  Man, are there NO room for mistakes?
  70. 2021 Tuesday B: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– The French government is going to give Air France-KLM a $4.7 billion bailout.  Next, North Korea announces that it will skip the Tokyo Summer Olympics due to COVID-19 concerns.  However, there is some scuttlebutt out there that says the two Koreas want to put in a bid to hold the 2032 Summer Olympics in their two countries.  Elsewhere, even though Iran continues to spit in the faces of the Biden administration, the U.S. State Department will continue trying to hold indirect talks with Tehran in Vienna, seeking a way by which, the United States can return to the deeply flawed Iran Nuclear Deal, aka the JCPOA.  Iran continues demanding a lifting of ALL sanctions and reparations for the harm caused them by the EVIL United States.  We say, “NUKE THEM!” 
  71. 2021 Tuesday C: NATIONAL NEWS– Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers has issued a state of emergency declaration over out-of-control wildfires afflicting his state.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration is preparing to present recent changes to Title IX rules regarding sexual assaults on college campuses.  We suspect it will return to what it was when Joe Biden was vice president under President Barack Hussein Obama.  Men are f**ked no matter what.  Moving on, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken says that the U.S. will provide Bat Flu vaccines to foreign nations and will expect NO favors in return.   Next, Bruce Jenner says that he might seek the governor’s gig in California if the recall becomes reality.  His alter-ego Caitlyn Jenner says he/she will run as a Republican.  Elsewhere, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, D-NY, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, says he has plans to build a monument dedicated to essential workers.  What a guy.
  72. 2021 Tuesday D: CRIME AND JUSTICE NEWS– the two bitches who murdered Uber Eats driver Mohammad Anwar in Washington, D.C., reportedly are taking a plea deal that will release them from custody when they reach 21 years of age as well as put them in some sort of group home environment and not into a juvenile facility.  No justice for Mr. Anwar.  Meanwhile, in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, Day 7 sees some shocking revelations where it appears that Officer Chauvin’s knee was on the shoulder blade of George Floyd and not on his neck.  Members of the Minneapolis Police Department say that Officer Chauvin did not act as he was trained to act so we shall see what we shall see.  However, a recent Rasmussen polls shows that less than a majority believes Officer Chauvin’s actions led to the loss of George Floyd’s life.  Unfortunately, some WOKE Black Lives Matter skank says that ‘IF the jury acquits, Minneapolis is going to burn, baby, burn,’ as Stokely Carmichael used to say back in the earliest days of the Black Panther movement.   Finally, a U.S. Navy corpsman shot two people near Fort Detrick, Maryland, and once he had, he fled to the base where he was shot and killed.[x]   The two vics are in critical condition.
  73. 2021 Tuesday E: COVID-19 NEWS I– New Zealand and Australia are opening quarantine-free travel between their two nations.  Next, we learn that approximately 200 people who received Chi-Vi vaccines have now tested positive for the vile disease, one Joe Biden has signed an executive order requiring ALL federal employees NOT to call it ‘the China virus or the Wuhan virus.’  Uh, okay, Joe, okay.  Something else the Biden administration is pushing- COVID-19 passports- Donald Trump Jr. denounces this police state-style measure as the ‘greatest affront on the liberties and freedoms of Americans.’[xi]  Amen.   Speaking of COVID-19 passports, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has put forth a bill: the “We Will Not Comply Act,” a bill that will prevent anyone in the U.S. demanding any citizen to show proof of immunization.  You know, if we required this for HIV-AIDS, the Democrats would launch a jihad.   In other vaccine news (and this is both troubling and curious), AstraZeneca is seeking a new partner to manufacture its vaccines for the Chi-Vi, you know, the old ‘VID, after discovering that its current partner- Emergent- seems to be having problems with cross-contamination.  Yet another flipping reason to wait a year or so before getting inoculated. 
  74. 2021 Tuesday F: COVID-19 NEWS II– A new Gallup Poll says that fear of the China Virus is at an all-time low even as globalists try to drive fear into us once again by swearing to Marx that numbers are on the rise.  Meanwhile, another report suggests that the Biden administration (meaning Barack Hussein Obama) is moving vaccine availability ahead to April 19.  In order to drive the fear of God into the hearts of the American people, they are now telling us that a double mutant variant from India has now been discovered in California– oi vie!   In other Chi-Vi-related news, small landlords are struggling with the Centers for Disease Control, aka the CDC, mandate on NO evictions while the coronavirus from communist China is running amok.[xii]   Meanwhile, a recent report suggests that the grant to the Wuhan Institute of Virology was NOT reviewed by National Institute of Health, the NIH.
  75. 2021 Tuesday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Congressman Alcee Hastings, D-FL 20th congressional district has died at age 84, having fought a losing battle with pancreatic cancer, a dire scourge.  Rest well, sir, rest well.  Next, the Portland, Oregon, police department has told city leaders that ‘they’re quitting.’  Meanwhile, Congressman Matt Gaetz, D-FL 1st congressional district, continues to stand strong under the barrage his Democrat enemies are launching at him.  This is another FALSE FLAG OPERATION designed to remove a powerful Republican from his post, yet House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi won’t remove the so-called ‘farter-in-chief,’ Congressman Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, who is a proven liability for the U.S. government in that the Chi-Com Ministry of State Security- the MSS- via him having an ongoing sexual relationship with an intelligence agent, Christine Fang-Fang.   Next, a U.S. Navy official says there are NO indications that the ‘mysterious drones’ are visitors from elsewhere.  Finally, Governor Asa Hutchinson, R-AR, vetoes a ban on sexual reassignment treatments and surgeries, saying ‘it’s government overreach’ and that ‘families, patients, and doctors should be the ones making the decisions as to what’s best for the individual.’
  76. 2021 Tuesday H: BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC NEWS– We learn today that the global shortage (caused by communist China yet again) of semiconductor chips could damage auto manufacturing far longer than anticipated.  Look, none of us who write for the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day wants NEW cars with all the unnecessary electronics and computerized systems.  No, give us gas-guzzling vehicles with less technology and we’re good.   Elsewhere, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that the ‘slowness of the vaccine rollout is a threat to the U.S. Economy.  Meanwhile, the Morning Consult Poll says that 26-percent of Americans will seek new jobs following the end of the Chi-Com pandemic.
  77. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 132,135,010 confirmed cases, +623,459, 2,856,632  confirmed deaths, +7,424, and 74,679,417 confirmed recoveries, +180,438.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,835,220 confirmed cases, DOWN 90,409 from yesterday’s reporting, 560,601 confirmed deaths, DOWN 4,210, and 118,732,580 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.[xiii] 
  78. 2021 Tuesday J: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 232,088 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.  (Figures frozen today…)
  79. 2021 Tuesday K: 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: 3,683,483 confirmed cases, 59,769 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,085,298 confirmed cases, 33,709 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 30,427 confirmed cases, 464 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 372,659 confirmed cases, 5,338 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., South Carolina, the state that singlehandedly started the Civil War (and paid the price for it): they have 557,803 confirmed cases, 9,204 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday L: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 834,603 confirmed cases, 6,248 confirmed deaths, and 823,380 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Bulgaria, former member of the Axis: 356,859 cases of the virus, 13,786 confirmed deaths and 273,429 confirmed recoveries.[xiv]

  82. 2021 Tuesday N: 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 $3.921 per gallon, $2.842 in Florida, $3.702 in Hawaii, and $3.333 in Washington state.[xix]    Let’s look at one other state- Arizona: $3.086.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,139,894,777,653 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven running amok.
  83. 2021 Tuesday O: Stick around for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1648 with a $138 million pot on the line…yep, we were snoozing, here are the winning numbers: 01, 19, 20, 32, 42, and Mega 17.  #1648- Out of 87,454 winning tickets, were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the mega for a prize of $7,834 apiece.

[ii] We promoted the music of Genesis and its members beginning on Tuesday, 02-April-2019 through Sunday, 15-September-2019.  This included not only the parent group but also Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett, Tony Banks, Mike Rutherford, Mike + the Mechanics, and Phil Collins.  Please, look for them.

[iii] We hope to begin promoting the music of the Allman Brothers Band and their spin-off projects sometime within the next eight years.  We hope you will be here when we do because they are a band worthy of investigation by the readership- you will be glad you did.

[iv] When we promote the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will also promote the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned.

[v] ABBA?  We have no clue but when we do so will you.

[viii] See i.

[ix] President Donald J. Trump says the American people should boycott ALL corporations and sports leagues boycotting Georgia over its improved election laws.

[x] How many mass shootings have we now had with feeble old Joe in the White House?  Four or five?  What’s up with that, Mr. National Unity? 

[xi] Just today, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, signed an executive order banning any attempt of creating Chi-Vi vaccine passports in the Lone Star State.  God bless you, Governor!

[xii] Since when did the CDC become the go-to source for who can and who cannot be evicted?  How did they achieve this power?  It’s unprecedented and it’s crazy and for small landlords who invested in real estate to fund their retirements, this kind of crap is devastating.

78. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 19, 2022

2009 Thursday: North Korea is up to its old tricks once again- they arrest two American journalists with Current TV- near the border with communist China. Many believe the North Koreans went across the Yalu River and grabbed them up. The North Koreans like kidnapping foreigners and holding them for ransom. Ask the Japanese.

  55. 2003 Wednesday: President George W. Bush ordered the start of the war against Iraq.  However, because of the time difference, it was early March 20 in Iraq.   Ah, well, U.S. and British warplanes begin conducting sorties across the country, blowing up various military installations, infrastructure, and whatever else they can get in their sights.  The American people did not want to do, this especially under false pretenses- ‘weapons of mass destruction.’  The had neither the support of the United Nations nor a majority of world public opinion; no, the only support they had was the Military-Industrial-Political Complex of the United States and their British allies (although MUCH LESS in the UK).  Thank you, Dick Cheney, thank you.
  56. 2004 Friday: Prior to tomorrow’s elections in Taiwan, an unknown thug (probably Chi-Com) shoots President Chen Shui-bian.  He was shot in the stomach while campaigning just as his Vice President Annette Lu was shot in the leg.  Not much information is available about the shooter.  Elsewhere, the Pakistani military clamps down on South Waziristan where they believe they have cornered acting head of al-Qaida, Ayman al-Zawahiri.  This guy is as elusive as hell, and they are losing loads of troops trying to uncover his rathole. 
  57. 2005 Saturday: In Doha, Qatar, a car bomb parked along the street erupts, killing one British visitor and wounds another dozen people.  Elsewhere, G20, the group of developing nations, calls on the industrialized countries to end their farm subsidies. 
  58. 2006 Sunday: Fine workmanship is on display in Moscow, Russia.  A passenger train navigating the Moscow Metro Tunnel has the roof crash down upon the train, setting it ablaze.  Rescue workers are able to reach the passengers and evacuate them quickly.  Good work on that account.

Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney dismiss the unrest as miniscule. 
  61. 2009 Thursday: North Korea is up to its old tricks once again- they arrest two American journalists with Current TV- near the border with communist China.  Many believe the North Koreans went across the Yalu River and grabbed them up.  The North Koreans like kidnapping foreigners and holding them for ransom.  Ask the Japanese.
  62. 2010 Friday: Palestinians in Hebron, Israel, are running amok throwing rocks at Israeli security forces.  Light ‘em up.  In Sudan, Muslims are running amok there, too, killing at least 13 people in street riots.  Elsewhere, in the incredibly tolerant Islamic Republic of Iran, former Vice President Hossein Marashi finds himself in trouble with the law, accused of spreading propaganda.

  64. 2012 Monday: Wendy’s overtakes Burger King as the second most popular hamburger chain in the world.  Next, North Korea sends an invitation to the International Atomic Energy Agency- the IAEA- to come for a visit.  They would like them to come for some tea and perhaps check their nuclear facilities.   
  65. 2013 Tuesday: In Rome, Italy, the papal inauguration ceremony for Pope Francis takes place in St. Peter’s Square; hundreds of thousands attend.  Next, on the 10th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq,  a string of suicide bombings, shootings, and other homicidal activities lead to the deaths of 98 people and another 240 injured in varying degrees.  Meanwhile, on the planet Mars, NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity discovers further evidence of water-bearing minerals.  Finally, famed porn actor Harry Reems dies of pancreatic carcinoma at age 65.

Trump, former Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio.  The losers block traffic for hours.  Most likely illegal aliens.
  69. 2017 Sunday: The president of Smith College- Mary Maples Dunn- dies at age 85.   Elsewhere, New Zealand expels an unnamed U.S. diplomat after the U.S. Embassy refused to waive the person’s immunity in a criminal investigation.  Meanwhile, famed newspaperman Jimmy Breslin dies at age 88.
  70. 2018 Monday: Much to howls of horror from the Pro-Death (what the Democrats call ‘Pro-Choice’), Mississippi signs into law the toughest abortion law in the United States: NO abortion after 15 weeks.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump releases his plan with which to stem the tide against the opioid epidemic which includes harsher penalties for traffickers along with the possibility of the death penalty.   Elsewhere, Facebook’s chief information security officer Alex Stamos is leaving the social media giant over Cambridge Analytica and Russian interference in the 2016 Election.
  71. 2019 Tuesday: The U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that the federal government can detain illegal aliens with criminal records indefinitely.  The liberal illegal-loving Democrats go berserk.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump hosts conservative Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro at the White House. Leftists don’t like this guy either. Next, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev announces his resignation after nearly 30 years in office, the last Soviet-era head of state left after the collapse of the USSR.  Elsewhere, Syrian Democratic Forces declare significant progress as they overrun an ISIS camp on the outskirts of Baghuz.
  72. 2020 Thursday: Although rumors abound that Sen. Bernie Sanders has left the race, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii becomes the 25th official Democrat candidate to announce she is leaving the race.  She entered the fight on January 11, 2019, and even said she would not seek another term in Congress.  We will see if she honors her pledge.  On Wall Street, NASDAQ closes up 160.73 points, +2.30% at 7,150.58; the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes up 188.27 points, +0.95% at 20.087.19; and the S & P 500 closes up 11.29 points, +0.47% at 2,409.39.  In California, Governor Gavin Newsom orders that as of midnight, all non-essential Californians must remain in their homes under self-quarantine, yet NO one talks about rounding up illegal aliens and deporting them or interning the homeless and giving them treatment.   COVID-19 Statistics: around the globe, there are 245,622 confirmed cases with 10,051 deaths and 88,450 recoveries.  Italy has passed China in deaths with 3,405 (so much for hugging a Chinaman) while Beijing reports 3,248 deaths.  Elsewhere, Iran reports 1,284 deaths, Spain 833, France 372, the United States 218, the United Kingdom 144, South Korea 94, Belgium 21, and on and on it goes.
  73. 2021 Friday: Day 59 of the Biden Administration.  JOE BIDEN NEWS- First, there is a great deal of consternation among the American people over Joe Biden falling not once, not twice, but three times as he attempted to hustle up the stairs to Air Force One.  When he made it to the top, he made a good show of it by giving a wave, but former President Gerald R. Ford only fell down the stairs of Air Force One ONCE.   No wonder Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to debate Joe Biden publicly.[iv]   Next, while Democrats may promote the benefits of marijuana for everyone (so they can tax the hell out of it), apparently the Joe Biden White House does not approve of its use among staffers.  An unnamed number of staffers have been terminated for past usage as well as present usage.  Watch that CBD oil, folks.
  74. 2021 Friday A: GOVERNOR ANDREW “KILLER” CUOMO NEWS- Things continue going from bad to worse for the so-called “Lov Gov” as the New Yorker publishes a ribald tale in which the governor is alleged to have said about a female staffer that he’s like to ‘mount her like a dog.’  Bow wow.  Folks, when stories like this come out, you know your time as a public official has ended, it’s over, no mas, kaput, rode hard and put away wet.   Amidst all these allegations, the Lov Gov’s approval ratings have collapsed to 39-percent.  Next, a Quinnipiac poll says that ‘New Yorkers want to see Cuomo go, just not right now.’  Most believe he is a dead man walking in next year’s election, so they want the hypersexual governor to remain just where he’s at.  Speaking of the 2022 Mid-Term, only 25-percent say they will vote for him again whereas a whopping 66-percent say he must go.
  75. 2021 Friday B: FOREIGN POLICY/OVERSEAS NEWS- the American people are shocked at how the representatives of the People’s Republic of China disrespected representatives of the Biden administration, most notably, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan.[v]  The communists Chinese told the Biden administration they ‘have no room to lecture them about human rights abuses when black lives seemingly DON’T matter in the United States.’  Of course, like former U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry allowed the Iranians to abuse him in public on innumerable occasions, so, too, did the Chi-Coms abuse Secretary Blinken.  The Chi-Coms told Blinken, Sullivan, and others in attendance that the ‘United States is NOT approaching the talks from a position of power.’  Our power is evaporating now that Donald Trump is no longer President Trump.[vi] 
  76. 2021 Friday C: In other Chi-Com related news, the U.S. House of Representatives manages to squash an effort by the Republican minority to have Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell removed from the House Intelligence Committee seeking as how he had a lengthy sexual affair with Ministry of State Security secret agent Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, which only recently ended.[vii]  In other foreign news, the U.S. House blasts the military junta in Myanmar demanding they free their detainees.
  77. 2021 Friday D: ILLEGAL ALIEN AND BORDER NEWS- the House Democrats pass an ‘immigration bill’ by a vote of 228-197 that will provide millions of illegal aliens with a pathway to citizenship.  This includes DREAMers, farm workers, and anyone expelled under the Trump administration.[viii]  Instead of re-establishing the old Bracero Program by which temporary workers could enter and exit the United States, the Democrats want the entire Third World to flood into the United States.   Next, the Department of Homeland Security acknowledges that it’s spreading COVID-19 infected illegal aliens across the country.  Meanwhile, Republican members of the House Judiciary Committee are demanding that chairperson Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, D-TX 18th congressional district, to  hold hearings on the BORDER CRISIS.  (Note- she won’t).   Elsewhere, Texas Governor Greg Abbot acknowledges problems in Customs and Border Patrol holding pens for illegal aliens in that COVID-19 is running amok and problems with the water systems are rising.   Not good.  Finally, the Customs and Border Patrol is seeking help with air transport to send illegal aliens along the Canadian border so CBP officers up there can process all these frigging illegal aliens.  WTF!
  78. 2021 Friday E: U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE AND SENATE NEWS- At least 73 House Democrats have signed a petition demanding House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi expel Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, from Congress.  Meanwhile, Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi is still trying to STEAL the certified election from Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks, R-IA 2nd congressional district.[ix]  Why aren’t more Republicans standing up to the old bag and telling her to stop this sort of behavior?  Enough is enough!  Elsewhere, Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district, says that ‘the Equality Act does nothing for equality for women.’  Next, never-to-be-outdone, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, D-MA, says that ‘the filibuster is a relic from the Jim Crow era.’[x]  Moving on, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-NY 14th congressional district, says that ‘challenging “Mumbles” Pelosi or Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer would be a lot to put on one person.’  Finally, Senate Democrats say that IF they fail to push through ‘filibuster reform,’ they will be facing ARMAGEDDON in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.’
  79. 2021 Friday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- a father in British Columbia underwent arrest for defying a court order.  What was the court order, you ask?  He was speaking about his daughter’s transition from being a girl to being a freak, uh,  we mean ‘boy.’  Excuse us for living.  The father had no clue what was going on and that his wife was aiding the mixed-up kid to become a person of the opposite gender.  The Canadian courts ordered him not to publicly comment on the matter but as a concerned parent, he felt he had no choice other than to express his feelings publicly since the government did not seem to give a dump.  Welcome to the modern world.   In other news, a wax museum in San Antonio, Texas, had to remove a wax effigy of President Donald J. Trump because dimwitted leftists were walking up and punching it in the face.  Put those scumbags in prison.   Speaking of the former president, a man was arrested by the Secret Service for threatening the 45th president as well as other government officials.  
  80. 2021 Friday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II- Following Oprah Winfrey’s interview with the person formerly-known-as-Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, Britney Spears is considering doing a similar interview.  Meanwhile, Queen Elizabeth says she is ‘not mad at Harry and Meghan, just saddened by their interview’ as are we.  Talk about a pair of ingrates.  Wow.  Never seen anything like it.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden addresses the matter of ‘his dog’ Major’s biting incident of a White House staffer but we learned nothing new about the matter.  Go figure.   Next, the judge in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin in the death of George Floyd agrees that some evidence from Floyd’s 2019 arrest can be heard in the present trial.  Finally, automaker Ford Motor Co. is building ‘computerless trucks’ sans chips due to a shortage of microchips.
  81. 2021 Friday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III- Facebook says it’s going to create a kid-friendly form of Instagram.  Meanwhile, as House Democrats seek to remove Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from the body, Twitter suspends her for a brief period before admitting some sort of glitch did it.  She’s back on the social media site.  
  82. 2021 Friday I: COVID-19 NEWS- Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, tore the AMAZING Dr. Anthony Fauci to shreds during their meeting yesterday in the U.S. Senate.  The junior senator from Kentucky slammed the guy for politicizing the virus by saying ‘fully vaccinated people do not have to wear masks so why, Dr. Fauci, are you out there prancing around saying we should continue wearing not one mask but at least two for the next TWO flipping years?’  The AMAZING Dr. Fauci tried to give as good as he was getting but the little wimp was getting pummeled.  The only thing that saved this phony was the senator’s time ran out and it was time to move to another lawmaker.   Next, a COVID-19 scientist involved in the vaccines says the next step is working on a cure for cancer. Speaking of the old Chi-Vi, the Centers for Disease Control reduces the social distancing for reopening schools.  Rather than six feet, the distance is now three feet.  Anything to do with Dr. Fauci getting his clock cleaned?  You be the judge.  Finally, Joe Biden is promoting a COVID-19 Hate Crimes bill following the Massage Parlor Massacres in Atlanta, Georgia, on March 16.  Even though the perp says he did not go there to kill Asians, Democrats continue braying like the left-wing sheeple they are that it was an ANTI-ASIAN HATE CRIME.  We’ve already addressed that bogus POS in the past couple of days. 
  83. 2021 Friday J: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 121,882,440 confirmed cases, +297,052, 2,692,806, confirmed deaths, +7,036, and 69,033,271 confirmed recoveries, +144,348.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,905,513 confirmed cases, up 58,699 from yesterday’s reporting, 545,131 confirmed deaths, UP 1,650, and 116,597,906 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 216,654 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- El Presidente, in another two-and-a-half weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    
  84. 2021 Friday K: 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: 3,635,718 confirmed cases, 57,278 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for about two weeks now- what the heck is going on?).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 355,396 confirmed cases, 5,225 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., the state of Vermont, aka the Green Mountain State: currently, they have 17,393 confirmed cases, 217 confirmed deaths, and 14,646 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 825,562 confirmed cases, 6,069 confirmed deaths, and 798,096 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Belgium, the home of Joseph Conrad’s “Heart of Darkness”- 822,801 cases of the ‘VID, 22,624 confirmed deaths but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.   
  85. 2021 Friday L: Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,627.97, DOWN 234.33 points (-0.71%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,215.24, UP 99.067 points (+0.67%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,913.10, DOWN 2.36 points (-0.06%).  The price of GOLD is $1,743.90 per troy oz., +2.20 (+0.13%) while the price of SILVER is $26.34 per troy ounce, +0.01 (+0.05%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,196.10 per troy oz, -4.00 (-0.13%) while the price of COPPER is $4.10 per pound, -0.01 (-0.22%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,638.50 per troy oz, -46.50 (-1.71%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.00 per troy oz, +45.00 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.44 per barrel, +0.02 (+0.03%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.49.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.   In Bahamian dollars, one greenback equals 1.00!   
  86. 2021 Friday M: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.875 per gallon, $3.586 in Hawaii, and $3.310 in Washington state.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,077,515,205,309 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  More spending yet to come.  Question: are the Democrats putting our country into debt servitude?  It is beginning to look that way.
  87. 2021 Friday N: EVENING UPDATES- Foreign News- Houthi rebel drone strikes once again have caused problems for the Saudis as six drones flew in and hit the Aramco facility in Riyadh.  Although they didn’t cause much damage, they still caused enough by causing some fires.  However, oil production was not interrupted.   Next, after the European Medicines Agency evaluated the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, they decided that the benefits far outweigh the risks and thus countries across Europe are back to using it to protect their citizens. 
  88. 2021 Friday O: Ex-con Michael Cohen, former personal attorney for President Donald J. Trump met with New York City D.A. Cyrus Vance, Jr., for the eighth time today.  Vance is trying to engineer a charge with which, he can ‘get’ Donald Trump.  He wants to know if the 45th president exaggerated the value of his real estate investments so he could get much more favorable loans from his bankers.  Stay tuned for further details (although we think Vance is tapping a dry hole).  We shall see.  In other news, apparently the quarterback of the Houston Texans, Deshaun Watson, is being accused by numerous spa employees for behaving in a sexually lewd and aggressive manner, something he wholeheartedly denies.  Poor guy must be a Republican because seldom does anyone go after a Democrat for such matters unless, of course, they are unlikable scumbags such as Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, former Senator Al Sharpton, and former Congressman John Conyers.  Then, one is fair game.  Finally, the feds are charging some Proud Boys leaders for their roles in the Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.
  89. 2021 Friday P: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1643 with a $105 million jackpot on the line tonight.  Here we go: 09, 14, 40, 59, 68, and Mega 08. In a very strange event, there were NO winners in California although across the country, there were 08. In a very strange event, there were NO winners in California although across the country, there were 549,204 winning tickets.  We will check back tomorrow to see if this holds true.   UPDATE on the Mega Millions- out of 75,180 winning tickets, there was but ONE winner- FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $48,322.
  90. 2022 Saturday:  Thank God, it’s the weekend…

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

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

[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] So far, the Biden administration has not answered Vladimir Putin’s challenge.

[v] We suspect that this will be the final time in which, Chi-Com officials meet with Biden administration officials on U.S. soil; no, from here on out, all meetings will be held in communist China and every visiting American diplomat will be undergoing the now-infamous anal swabs.  Serves them right.

[vi] The Biden administration is in such dire straits that we expect to see the Chi-Coms finish the job in Hong Kong, that the gates of landing craft will soon be hitting the wet sand on Taiwan’s beaches, that the Russians will make additional moves to re-establish the old Soviet Union, that the Iranians will incorporate Iraq and intimidate the rest of the Middle East, and that Kim Jong Un will begin firing a barrage of ballistic missiles into South Korea.  Who is going to stop these bad actors?  Certainly not an enfeebled old Joe Biden and a politicized Pentagon.  We’re toast, folks.  I guess we will salute the new world order.

[vii] It only ended because her cover was blown, and she had to scurry back to the PRC.  We suspect this poor girl must shower every time she has the displeasure of thinking about Congressman Swalwell.  Poor thing.  It sucks to feel sorry for a Chi-Com intelligence agent more so than a fellow American, but Swalwell is an embarrassment to the entire country.

[viii] At least 3 million illegal aliens will be legalized immediately, and taxpayer dollars will be used to import millions more illegal aliens. 

[ix] Election results were counted at least 3 times and each time they were counted, Miller-Meeks beat Democratic Party challenger Rita Hart.  Rita Hart ran to Speaker Pelosi blubbering and crying ‘she was robbed’ so now “Mumbles” Pelosi is seeking to STEAL the election away from Miller-Meeks and give it to crybaby Hart.

[x] It’s no surprise she doesn’t know what she is talking about.  The filibuster exists to protect the rights of the minority and the Democrats have used it repeatedly to protect them when they are in the minority (which may never happen again, thanks to H.R. 1).

77. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2022

1946 Monday: At the Nuremburg War Crimes Trials, former Luftwaffe Chief Hermann Goering is still in the witness dock. He will not accept fault for his crimes and defends the actions that he and his fellow Nazis took during the war. He’s a tough nut to crack. Goering, however, knows the score- he knows he’s destined for the hangman’s noose unless a miracle happens.

  69. 2003 Tuesday: Tomorrow is the jumping off point for the invasion of Iraq.  Hundreds of millions of people across the world are praying the world will not go to war but to war the United States would go, all because the Military-Industrial-Political Complex will rake in tens of billions of dollars in war materials, conquered territory, and regime change.  President George W. Bush, PLEASE- don’t do this.  We beg you.  Meanwhile, the foreign ministry in Iraq labels President Bush a ‘war criminal’ before the war is even under way.
  70. 2004 Thursday: Howard Dean announces he is going to form a far-left organization of people of like mind, the progressive Democracy for America group.  This guy’s a nut.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives votes to double the bounty atop the head of wanted international terrorist, Osama bin Laden.  Find the POS and kill him.
  71. 2005 Friday: Doctors in Florida, acting on the orders of a state judge, removed Terri Schiavo’s feeding tube.  Despite the efforts of congressional Republicans to intervene and repeated court appeals by the parents of Schiavo, the brain-damaged woman died on March 31, 2005, at age 41.

Security Council vote just days before authorizing any naval force encountering pirates off the coast of East Africa to engage, a U.S. Naval squadron encounters Somali pirates and lights them up killing at least 1, wounding others, and taking 12 prisoners.  Excellent action.  Pirates must be eliminated from the high seas.  Elsewhere, Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine are fighting one another as they try to form a unified cabinet.
  73. 2007 Sunday: The war in Iraq continues killing people and destroying property.  A bomb goes off in Baghdad killing at least 11 people and wounding God knows how many others.   Elsewhere, French crime writer Cesare Battisti is arrested in Brazil.  Apparently, his home country’s courts in Italy convicted him in absentia of two murders back in the 1970s.  The Italian police were finally able to capture the rogue and extradite him back to Rome to face justice.
  74. 2008 Tuesday: You know it’s an election year when loads of limp-wristed sissies turn out to protest the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.  Look, we agree, NO one wanted George W. Bush to invade Iraq but the more we think about it, the more it appears that the Deep State aka the Military-Industrial-Political Complex egged him on to do it because industrialists and corporatists can only make money when bombs are dropping on Middle Eastern and other Third World targets and blood is being shed for oil.  When we don’t even get the oil, it’s even worse.  Fricking Dick Cheney!   Meanwhile, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, does his best to distance himself from the insane comments made by his ‘former’ Reverend Jeremiah “Chickens Have Come Home to Roost” Wright in whose church Senator and Mrs. Obama sat for 20 years.

  76. 2010 Thursday: In anticipation of passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA, aka the ACA, aka Obamacare- the White House delays an overseas trip so President Barack Obama can sign the bill when it reaches his desk.  The Democrats expect to have the 216 votes with which to pass this monstrosity that will destroy the American healthcare system for generations to come, lead to lower-quality healthcare, and create ‘Death Panels’ with which government bureaucrats will eliminate what the Nazis called, “Useless eaters,” people who took more resources to stay alive than they gave back to society.  We hope it won’t pass.
  77. 2011 Friday: After the United States, Britain, and France authorized a No-Fly Zone over Libya, Libyan authorities announced that it would call for a ceasefire, which it immediately violated by killing 25 civilians in Misrata.   Meanwhile, the MESSENGER spacecraft goes into orbit around the planet Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun.

Robert Bales.  Currently, he is being held in solitary confinement at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas.  Afghan President Hamid Karzai is screeching about ‘multiple shooters killing the 16 which included 9 children’ but no evidence supporting those allegations is found.   Sgt.

  81. 2015 Wednesday: Although election consultants sent by President Barack Obama to help the opposition to Israeli leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, worked hard and spent millions to beat the prime minister, Netanyahu and his Likud Party retain power.  Mr. Netanyahu set out to form a new coalition government.   Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Frankfurt, Germany, during a massive protest against austerity measures proposed by Berlin. 
  82. 2016 Friday: American actor Joe Santos of Rockford Files fame dies at age 84.  Elsewhere, following imposition of new sanctions on North Korea, South Korea reports that its northern neighbor fired off two ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan.   Meanwhile, European Union leaders are trying to bribe Turkey to do something about halting the ongoing flow of Muslim ‘refugees’ from the Middle East, Central Asia, and other parts of the region through their country and into Europe.  Something has got to give.
  83. 2017 Saturday: The founder of rock-and-roll—the great Chuck Berry[xii]—died from natural causes at the age of 90 in Wentzville, Missouri.  Meanwhile, as Iraqi military forces begin assaulting ISIS positions in western Mosul, tens of thousands of civilians try to flee through the battle lines.  The Iraqis have to sort out civilian from terrorist, it’s an onerous process but a necessary one.
  84. 2018 Sunday: In a ‘shock of shocks’ (yeah, right), Russian thug president and oligarch Vladimir Putin wins his fourth term with 76-percent of the vote.  Meanwhile, Sri Lanka ends the state of emergency it declared on March 06, 2018, after anti-Muslim riots got out of hand.
  85. 2019 Monday: According to the U.S. National Weather Service, historic, catastrophic flooding occurs as parts of Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and South Dakota find themselves battling floodwaters.  Of course, this is a SIGN of ‘Climate Change.’  Ooh, la-la. Elsewhere, New Zealand mourns the loss of people killed in the recent mosque shootings, urging the populace to show compassion for the Muslim population.   Meanwhile, in Utrecht, Netherlands, a jihadist seeking revenge for the mosque shootings in New Zealand opens fire on a train, killing three people and wounding others.  The police finally track the POS down and discover that he is a Turkish immigrant.   Bring out the old guillotine.   
  86. 2020 Wednesday: As of today, there are 214,894 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the “Wuhan Virus,” the one the Peoples’ Republic of China dumped on the world.  Currently, we have 8,732 confirmed deaths with 83,313 recoveries.  China continues leading the death toll with 3,122 followed by Italy with 2,978 and then Iran with 1,135 deaths.  After them, Spain acknowledges 623 deaths followed by France with 148, then South Korea with 84, the United Kingdom with 71, then the Netherlands with 58, and the U.S. with 55 deaths.  Meanwhile, after getting his butt clobbered in the previous day’s presidential primaries, Sen. Bernie Sanders announces the suspension of his presidential run.  Thus, Joe Biden is the de facto winner of the nomination which means, who will contest him at the convention or even before?  Will it be moronic Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York who seems to be on TV every flipping day acting as though he is the ‘shadow president’ or will it be Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama?  Possibly, since Democrats OWE Donald Trump at least three years, perhaps the president should postpone elections until November 2024?  On Wall Street, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes at 19,898.92, a drop of 1,338.46 or -6.30%.  The S & P closes at 2,398.10, a drop of 131.09 or -5.18.  Finally, the NASDAQ closes at 6,989.84, a drop of 344.94 or -4.70%.
  87. 2021 Thursday: DAY 58 of the Biden Regime.   FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS UPDATE- North Korea calls nuclear talks with the ‘Joe Biden administration’ to be little more than a waste of their time.  Furthermore, they say that IF Joe Biden doesn’t dump the harsh speech, Joe Biden won’t be getting much sleep at night for the next four years.  They might consider speaking with ‘Joe Biden’ if he refrains from the hate speech against Kim Jong Un and discontinues the nasty rhetoric.  Otherwise, Biden can shut the hell up.   In answer, the Biden administration says it ‘will keep all options on the table when it comes to dealing with the North Koreans and will counter any threat the Kim regime poses to the rest of the Asia-Pacific Region.’ 
  88. 2021 Thursday A: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS UPDATE II: The Russians are not happy with Joe Biden.  First, they demand that Joe Biden apologize for calling Vladimir Putin a ‘killer,’ and then when Joe Biden’s administration remains mum, they call their ambassador in Washington, D.C., to return home.[xiii]  This is a slap to the face of Joe Biden personally and to the American people in general.  It’s a good thing that Joe Biden didn’t say that ‘if Putin and I were in high school, I’d take his scrawny little ass behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.’  IF Joe had said something like that, we might be getting nuked by now but of course, Joe Biden lacks the testosterone to do something as brazenly stupid as that.   Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘back and forth between Biden and Putin is increasingly childish.’  Stop it.  Meanwhile, Moscow extends the house arrest for Alexei Navalny’s spokesperson, Kira Yarmysh.   
  89. 2021 Thursday B: FOREIGN NEWS UPDATE/OVERSEAS III: In Kabul, Afghanistan, a bus carrying Afghan workers along a road runs smack dab into a roadside bomb planted by practitioners of the religion of peace.  The resulting explosion claims the lives of four workers outright, injures another nine, and blows the bus to smithereens.  One must love the ‘religion of peace!’  Next, as the Joe Biden administration meets with the Chi-Coms in Alaska, reports are that Beijing is going to pressure U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken- a close friend of the Chi-Coms- to remove all Trump era sanctions imposed upon them.  This most likely is going to happen.  Elsewhere, the UAW is upset because an automobile Ford Motor Company promised to manufacture in Ohio is heading for Mexico instead.  Thank you, Biden administration, thank you dumb ass Richard Trumka for NOT putting labor squarely behind President Donald J. Trump.  More job losses to come.
  90. 2021 Thursday C: BORDER NEWS UPDATE I: The people of the United States are decrying ‘Joe Biden’s assault on the southern border.’  As our country reels from the massive invasion of Third World illegal aliens who are coming here to suck off government’s teats, none of these people will assimilate and many of them are males of military age.   House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that ‘Joe Biden’s words and actions alone have created the border crisis.’  He also says that ‘when Joe Biden was running for president, he said he would open the borders and legalize millions of illegals so no one should be surprised now at what is happening along our border.’  (Note- we say it’s time to begin seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, to put in antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat obstacles beginning on our side of the river and then lay in minefields, foo gas pits, punji stake pits, and whatever else we can to protect our borders from the tidal wave of illegals.  STOP THEM NOW!)
  91. 2021 Thursday D: BORDER NEWS UPDATE II: Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says that ‘Joe Biden is going to try to redeploy border funding to other programs,’ like WOKE bulls**t.   Meanwhile, Mexico says it will help with the BORDER DISASTER if the United States provides aid with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.   Elsewhere, it’s clear that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is working on behalf of the illegal aliens and not the American people.[xiv]  Elections have consequences, folks.  The Biden administration is planning to legalize ALL DACA recipients as well as anyone who has worked in U.S. agricultural fields for as short a time as 180 days.  BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  It is better than hundreds of thousands of uneducated illegal aliens languishing in Joe Biden’s gulags.  Send them back NOW.  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, demands that Secretary Mayorkas ‘change course now’ on the border.
  92. 2021 Thursday E: CHI-COM NEWS: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, is moving forward a bill that will strip compromised House Intelligence Committee member Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, a man who had a lengthy sexual affair with a Chi-Com female intelligence agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang.  Leader McCarthy says there is NO way that Swalwell could get a security clearance in the private sector so he should not have one in the public sector.  Swalwell is a security risk and increasingly erratic House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi will do nothing about it.  (Note- it appears to me that her anti-Alzheimer’s drugs are not working very well- Goldie).
  93. 2021 Thursday F: POLLING AND ELECTIONS NEWS- a recent Rasmussen poll reports that 75-percent of the American people believe that VOTER ID is an essential tool with which to maintain fair and honest elections.  Why then won’t the Democrats demand safe and secure elections rather than seeking to enfranchise illegal aliens, felons, sixteen-year-olds, and others incapable of voting to vote?  This bull crap simply must stop.  NOW.   
  94. 2021 Thursday G: ATLANTA MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRES and associated ideas- even though Robert Aaron Long- the person that shot and killed five Korean women, Latinos, and one white male says he didn’t do it because they are Asian does not gain much traction in the media.[xv]  We think his motive most likely was having watched the Grammys on Sunday night and seen all the whores and sluts prancing around that for a guy with a self-proclaimed sex addiction, he acted upon what he saw.  The Democrats continue wailing about the uptick in anti-Asian violence of which, we have still seen incredibly little and what we have seen other than Mr. Long is black folks attacking Asians.[xvi]  Still, the Asian-American community is screaming for support so congressional hearings looking into all the ‘anti-Asian violence’ are going to begin soon.  Dr. Alan Dershowitz, noted legal scholar, says the easy availability of firearms put the gun into the hands of Mr. Long.   How about we do something to help people with sex addictions in our highly sexualized society?   (Note- Joe Biden and Kooky Kamala Harris are going to visit Georgia soon and are going to blast guns- again.  STFU.  Goldie).   Anyhow, the Atlanta P.D. says the investigation into Mr. Long is FAR FROM OVER meaning they are seeking a racial angle.  Oh- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Trump’s to blame for the shootings.’[xvii]
  95. 2021 Thursday H: U.S. Senate News- the U.S. Senates confirms the pro-China William Burns by a unanimous vote to become the nation’s next Central Intelligence Agency director.  Wow.  Even worse, the U.S. Senate confirms California Attorney-General Xavier Becerra by a vote of 50-49 (Senator Susan Collins, RINO-ME, voted ‘aye’) to become the next Health and Human Services secretary.  Generally, someone with a medical background is sought for this post.  Sadly, however, the only thing Becerra qualifies for is his love of abortion, abortion at all stages of fetal development and even post-birth.  The man is an evil, evil ghoul.   At least the people of California have gotten rid of him.  No longer is he the Golden State’s problem; no, he’s now the nation’s problem.   Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer was correct when he defended the legislative filibuster back in 2017 whereas now, Schumer lacks the balls to keep the left-wing of his party at bay.  Schumer is LEFT-WING of his party.
  96. 2021 Thursday I: Miscellaneous Government News- The Republicans in Congress are concerned over HOW the Democrats plan on funding their (Green New Deal) ‘infrastructure program.’  Representative Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the Democrats will stick ‘the American workers, the middle class with paying for another multi-trillion-dollar bill.’  She also says that this scheme is their most expensive so far.   Meanwhile, the House passes an extension on the Equal Rights Amendment despite furious pushback from the GOP.   Next, in a ‘speech’ today,  Joe Biden referred to “Kooky Kamala” Harris once again as “President Harris.”  Dr. Jill Biden should be in prison for elder abuse.  WTF.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives passes a bill with which to award GOLD MEDALS to all Capitol Hill police officers who withstood the ‘insurrection of January 06, 2021.’  Wow.  Go, Nance, go!  Panderer.[xviii] 
  97. 2021 Thursday J: WEATHER NEWS UPDATE- the National Weather Service issues severe warnings for the American Deep South.  The NWS also says that much of the U.S. is going to be in the throes of an extended drought.  WTF is going on in the atmosphere with all the chem trails?  Something is occurring of which hardly anyone knows.  We would LOVE to know what our government or worse- the globalist government- is doing to the world’s atmosphere.
  98. 2021 Thursday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- The Kansas state Senate passes a bill prohibiting trannys from playing in girls’ and women’s sports.  It will advance to the GOP-controlled House in the state and then move to the governor’s desk.   Next, Lt. General Michael Flynn’s former business partner, Bijan Rafiekan, found himself resentenced by an appeals court over whatever bogus crime with which he was charged.   Next, Dan Bongino is going to assume Rush Limbaugh’s radio slot on Talk Radio.   In other interesting news, Los Angeles County D.A. George Gascon admits to cutting 8,000 years of prison sentences given to L.A. criminals and this in just 100 days.  We are NEVER visiting Los Angeles City or County ever again until this scurrilous POS is removed from office.
  99. 2021 Thursday L: GOP Miscellaneous News: a nonpartisan polling groups says that Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is the most effective U.S. senator.  Next, another poll says that U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is the most popular SCOTUS justice among Republicans.  Congratulations, Justice Thomas.   Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he’s optimistic about Joe Biden doing the right thing with the Chi-Coms.   
  100. 2021 Thursday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 121,585,388 confirmed cases, +583,289, 2,685,770, confirmed deaths, +10,249, and 68,888,923 confirmed recoveries, +253,755.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,846,814 confirmed cases, up 58,650 from yesterday’s reporting, 543,481 confirmed deaths, UP 1,177, and 116,340,711 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this wretched, disorientated slobbering POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 215,004 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    
  101. 2021 Thursday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,632,133 confirmed cases, 57,016 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for more than a week now).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 354,828 confirmed cases, 5,212 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., aka the federal district, Washington, D.C., aka Fort Pelosi: currently, they have 42,892 confirmed cases, 1,046 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries thanks to Mayor Muriel Bowser.  Woof.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 824,926 confirmed cases, 6,062 confirmed deaths, and 793,723 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Romania, the home of Vlad the Impaler, aka Count Dracula of literary fame: 881,159 cases of the old the Communist China Condition, 21,877 confirmed deaths and 794,950 confirmed recoveries.   Meanwhile, new reports say that New York health authorities were horrified at Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s order to return COVID-19-positive patients back into nursing homes (and yet, they did NOTHING.  They are as guilty as the governor who, by the way, has another accuser, a female reporter who says he made her feel uncomfortable).
  102. 2021 Thursday O: Boy!  Dreadful day on the markets now that BIG BUSINESS realizes there is going to be inflation, possibly, stagflation, loss of jobs, low interest rates, all the gains made in 2021 are LOST thanks to “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,862.30, DOWN 153.07 points (-0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,116.17, DOWN 409.03 points (-3.02%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,915.46, DOWN 58.66 points (-1.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.60 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.08 per troy ounce, -0.27 (-1.03%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.00 per troy oz, -9.50 (-0.78%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.04 (-0.94%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,662.80 per troy oz, +124.50 (+4.90%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.00 per troy oz, +45.00 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.59 per barrel, -0.41 (-0.68%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.49.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Azerbaijani Manat, one greenback equals 1.69.   Last week, there were 770,000 first-time unemployment applications last week which is a reverse from the previous week.  Claims are going up, NOT going down.  The national unemployment rate for February 2021 was 6.2-percent nationwide.
  103. 2021 Thursday P: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.871 per gallon, $3.580 in Hawaii, and $3.301 in Washington state.  Time for ALL Red States and portions of states to secede from the Communist States of America.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,066,880,604,872 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  104. 2022 Friday: What will happen today…

[i] We hope to do the music of all the soul legends one day including Wilson Pickett among others.

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

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

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

[v] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

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

[vii] We shared the music of the Stones beginning Tuesday, 22-March-2016 through Sunday, 28-August-2016.  This included the members’ solo projects.  We sure as heck hope you check out the Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, Keith Richard, Charlie Watts, Bill Wyman, and Mick Taylor.  Ronnie Wood you can find during the presentation of the Faces

[viii] 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.

[ix] 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.

[x] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012.  You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.

[xi] Not sure when we will do the music of Blues Image but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[xii] We look forward to promoting the music of Chuck Berry in its entirety but are not sure as to when.  Stay tuned.

[xiii] Apparently, Vladimir Putin is challenging Joe Biden to a public debate.  This is something we would love to have front row seats to watch!

[xiv] We learn today that at least 3 million illegal aliens are going to be legalized immediately just as we learned that all illegal aliens deported under the Trump administration who were here living in the shadows for three years will be invited back.  We also learn that the Biden administration will NOT deport any illegal alien child who manages to walk through Central America, up through Mexico, and somehow cross our border will NEVER be deported- DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

[xv] Interesting note- Atlanta Police Department Captain Jay Baker lost his position as spokesperson for the department today because he relayed to the press what the suspect told him, that he ‘shot those people because of his sex addiction.’  Captain Baker did not sing the song of INCREASED VIOLENCE AGAINST ASIAN-AMERICANS, OH MY, MY!  Identity politics strikes once again and that ho, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is in the midst of it.

[xvi] The incredible thing in all of this is that Democrats despise Asian-Americans, they demonstrate it through holding them back in institutions of higher learning like colleges and universities.  The Dems do not like the fact that Asians are extremely industrial, successful, and do not need government generally to survive and thus the Democrats wage war on them around the clock.  Now that they can use their grief to their advantage, they love the Asians now but when things go back to normal, they will cut them loose the same way Democrats cut Cindy Sheehan lose after she thought she could primary Nancy Pelosi in her California House district race.  Democrats are USERS, they care little for the people they use, it’s who and what they are.

[xvii] Here’s something- Donald J. Trump’s personal wealth FELL by $700 million the four years he was president.  Mr. Trump is the first American president to LOSE money while in office.  The man is a patriot.

[xviii] The ‘January 06, 2021, commission’ by which the government seeks to ‘investigate the Capitol Hill riots, aka THE TRUMP-INSPIRED INSURRECTION, is being held up by…you guessed it…partisanship. 

64. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, MARCH 05, 2022

2021 Friday N: Diners enjoying an evening out in a restaurant in Mogadishu, Somalia, got the surprise of their lives when an explosives-laden vehicle crashed in through the front, detonated, killing at least 10, injuring another 30, with many more feared to be trapped in the rubble. The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes once again. We hope the diners had not yet paid their checks.

  61. 2016 Saturday: Results for Super Saturday primary election races are thus: candidates Donald J. Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz win two states each; Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders wins 2 while his challenger Hillary Clinton wins one.   Meanwhile, a U.S. airstrike north of Mogadishu, Somalia, kills 150 Al-Shabbab militants, all members of the so-called “religion of peace.”
  62. 2017 Sunday: In an event that would prove to be true later, President Donald J. Trump accuses former President Barack Hussein Obama of ‘wiretapping Trump Tower’ in New York.  The news media laughed, Obama chuckled, and then as evidence began to appear, it sure looks like the anti-Trump coup plotters which include scum like John Brennan, James Clapper, Peter Strzok and his sex pal Lisa Page, James Comey, and even Hillary Clinton and Samantha Power all had a hand in the plot[ix].  Shame on them.   Elsewhere, Israel lessens penalties for people smoking the pakalolo in public.
  63. 2018 Monday: For the first time since becoming ‘supreme leader,’ Kim Jong Un meets South Korean officials when he hosts a dinner for them in Pyongyang.  We hope medical professionals checked out the South Korean diplomats and politicians for possible parasites.   Elsewhere, communist China commences its ‘two sessions,’ the annual confab of elected government officials and the Chinese Communist Party.  One thing they announce is an increase of 8-percent to the national defense budget.
  64. 2019 Tuesday: BREAKING NEWS: a major medical study in Denmark involving 650,000 children determined that the MMR vaccine does NOT increase the risk of autism as many anti-vaccine folks claim it does.   Meanwhile, Forbes reports that Kylie Jenner is the youngest-ever billionaire at the ripe old age of 21.   Elsewhere, Scott Gottlieb, head of the Food and Drug Administration, announces that he will resign as of next month. 
  65. 2020 Thursday: Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Democrat-Massachusetts, becomes the next Democrat candidate seeking the 2020 presidential nomination to heed the writing on the wall.  A very unlikable candidate, she throws in the towel in an angry appearance before her supporters and is unwilling to endorse either remaining candidate, former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-VT.  Oh, Tulsi Gabbard, outgoing congresswoman from Hawaii remains in the fight but who knew.  Chef Elmer Hootenstein of the AICPENDBLOG.COM predicts on this date that Mr. Biden will beat Bernie for the nomination and that he will choose either Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama to be his running mate.  Then, after the DNC Convention in Milwaukee in July, something will happen that will drive Biden from the race and either Hillary or Michelle will become the nominee.  YOU heard it here first!
  66. 2021 Friday: Today is DAY 45 of the collapsing Biden-Harris administration.  Of course, the Chi-Coms are backing the senile old coot, they’re the ones keeping him going.  We shall see what we shall see.  What we are seeing is an invasion at our southern border with no one in the Chi-Com Joe Biden willing to stop it.  Immigration authorities are considering sending busloads of illegal alien brats to a military base in Virginia.  Other illegal aliens are gathering outside ports of entry all mysteriously wearing t-shirts demanding ‘Joe Biden let us in.’  Our military should evacuate the Capitol and relocate to the border to dig antipersonnel and antivehicle ditches, lay in minefields, foo gas pits, and other positions to repel the invasion.  Predator drones should circle overhead lighting up illegal alien vehicles and watercraft plying the waters of the Rio Grande back and forth bringing in thousands of illegal aliens.  It is us or them.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court rules in a 5-3 decision with Amy Coney Barrett abstaining that “Illegal aliens and NOT the federal government have the burden of proof when it comes to fighting deportation orders.”  The high court also bows to a Biden administration request not to hear Trump-era cases regarding stopping funding to sanctuary cities and states.   Who needs court packing when you have a chief justice like John Roberts? 
  67. 2021 Friday A: In Sweden, an Afghan migrant carries out a knife and axe attack on Swedish citizens sending 22 people to the hospital.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace.’  Meanwhile, Pope Francis is visiting Iraq today.  We pray for his safety as we do not believe the Iraqis possess the ability to thwart an ISIS assault on the pontiff and his retinue.  The Christian community in Iraq has long been endangered thanks to the invasion of that country launched by President George W. Bush, RINO-Texas, in 2003 and the birth of ISIS, the proliferation of al-Qaida, and subsequent Iranian hegemony throughout the area.   
  68. 2021 Friday B: New Yorkers continue distancing themselves from rapidly imploding Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the “Love Gov,” the man who groomed female employees such as Charlotte Benning, asking them all sorts of personal questions, putting hands on them, and other obnoxious, sexist, despicable things that grade schoolers know is impermissible.  He also is in deep trouble over his jiggering and re-jiggering of COVID-19 deaths in nursing homes-hospitals-to nursing homes and back to hospitals with which, he tried to cover his tracks in eliminating senior citizens and other vulnerable populations.  He did what the Nazis were doing in the 1930s, eliminating what THEY called ‘useless eaters,’ people who required more resources from the state than what they contributed to the state.  You can bet in this era of trillion-dollar PORKULUS bills that more older people are going to have to be denied life-saving operations and therapies so resources can be redistributed to others such as ILLEGAL ALIENS.    Speaking of the national debt, it’s spiraling out of control in the era of Biden executive orders and sycophantic bills from Democrats in Congress.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that ‘the Fed’s $4 trillion in ‘assets’ is created through ‘imaginary money’ such as buying up U.S. debt as it did bad mortgages back in the subprime mortgage collapse.  He says there must be more transparency.  
  69. 2021 Friday C: The United States added 379,000 jobs in February bringing down the unemployment numbers to 6.2-percent.  However, as the Democrats continue trying to shove a $15 per hour minimum wage through and as they continue bringing in hundreds of thousands more illegals- plus legalize the existing 30-50 million illegal aliens roaming the shadows of the country, unemployment is going to skyrocket as the Cloward and Piven strategy to topple the existing order and replacing it with socialism continues unabated.   Democrats agree on smaller but longer jobless aid to U.S. workers so they can continue sitting at home spanking the wank. 
  70. 2021 Friday D:  Two city council members in New Jersey have been indicted for engineering mass voting fraud in the Garden State by tampering with mail-in ballots.  Elsewhere, a journalist investigating violent crime in northern California is victimized by a gun-wielding robber.  In other fascinating news, California Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, Democrat, a man who had an ongoing sexual liaison with a Chi-Com agent, is suing President Donald J. Trump for causing him fear during the Antifa-led Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Good luck with that you POS.  To alleviate such fears, General Russell Honoré- the man put in charge to get to the bottom of the riots- says a Quick Reaction Force must be kept in the nation’s capital at all times so IF so-called ‘right-wing mobs’ show up (but not left-wing mobs), they can restore order to the streets.  This will cost just $130 million per year to maintain.  What a load of crap.  Folks- there is BUT ONE REASON as to why troops still patrol Washington, D.C., ONE REASON: the Democrats KNOW that everyone knows they stole the 2020 Presidential Election.  Otherwise, WHY all the fear?  Why all the fencing?  Why all the troops, troops they despise, still on scene, patrolling the streets?  They know WE KNOW they stole the election and that what happened on January 6, 2021, was a FALSE FLAG OPERATION of epic proportions.   Hence why they are flooding the country with an army of military-aged illegal alien males.
  71. 2021 Friday E: Speaking of the Capitol Hill Riots, the Assistant Director of the FBI for Counterterrorism Jo Sanborn says that “NO FIREARMS were recovered from the more than 300 arrested on scene on January 6, 2021.  NO FIREARMS.”  Thus, we know that what happened on January 6 was indeed a FALSE FLAG OPERATION organized by the Democratic-Socialists to make it appear as though Trump supporters- note supporters of law and order- stormed the Capitol.  Much like Cesar Sayoc, the guy busted for sending ‘pipe bombs’ via the USPS to various Democrat politicians back in 2017 or so we recall, a man with Trump stickers plastered all over his van, the Capitol Hill Riots are just as phony.  The Democrats engineer these farces so they can use them for political subterfuge. 
  72. 2021 Friday F: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 115,781,179 confirmed cases, +313,555, 2,572,353, confirmed deaths, +6,984, and 65,296,409 confirmed recoveries, +262,009.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,130,219 confirmed cases, up 64,007 from yesterday’s reporting, 525,560 confirmed deaths, UP 1,708, and 106,309,314 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile drooling POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 197,083 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, STOP SENDING U.S. vaccines overseas, use them here at home you reprobate scumbag.  NOT OUR PRESIDENT!  (Note- send the J & J vaccine overseas to the Third World seeing as how fetal tissues from aborted children are used in both the making and testing of this vaccine).
  73. 2021 Friday 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: 3,587,946 confirmed cases, 53,586 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 441 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries- NOTE: Hawaii once again has frozen its information…WHY?  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 346,058 confirmed cases, 5,098 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Connecticut: currently, they have 285,330 confirmed cases, 7,704 confirmed deaths, but NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 793,407 confirmed cases, 5,822 confirmed deaths, and 746,228 confirmed recoveries.  .
  74. 2021 Friday H: Somehow, the Democrats have been able to drive the markets back up on this Friday- it’s artificial, the collapse is still coming.   Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,496.30, UP 572.60 points (+1.85%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,920.50, UP 196.68 points (+1.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,841.94, UP 73.47 points (+1.95%).  The price of GOLD is $1,698.20 per troy oz., -0.30 (-0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.30 per troy ounce, +0.01 (+0.30%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,133.30 per troy oz, +5.00 (+0.44%) while the price of COPPER is $4.10 per pound, +0.02 (+0.60%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,342.80 per troy oz, -11.60 (-0.49%) Same as yesterday.  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $66.28 per barrel, +0.19 (+0.29%)  Gas price have gone up by 20 cents this past week.  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.30.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000020.   In Taiwanese dollars, one greenback equals 27.94.
  75. 2021 Friday I: Update report on the illegal alien invasion at our southern border: CBP reports that 100,000 illegals were detained at the border in February which means at least 150,000 to 200,000 managed to slip through.  Not good.  In other news, we learn that California has a $15 billion surplus yet Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom has his hand out begging for federal money.  Speaking of Governor Newsom, the recall effort has more than 2 million signatures which spells doom for him.  The governor also offered the California Teachers Association a $6.6 billion deal if they would reopen the schools and they told him to ‘f**k off.’   IF we only had someone like Ronald Reagan who would tell the union, ‘go back to work or you are fired’ as he did the air traffic controllers.
  76. 2021 Friday J: A new book claims (and we believe this) former President Barack Hussein Obama feared this his former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden would embarrass himself if he ran in 2020.’  Well, it’s clear as to whose voice now whispers to Joe via his earpiece: Barack Hussein Obama.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump RIPS Joe Biden asunder over his appalling inhumane border policies, policies that allow for the victimization of women, children, and homos as they plod toward the border between Mexico and the U.S.  This is not right, Joe, and yet the leftists around Old Joe continue urging him to do nothing to halt the tidal wave.  Illegal alien hunting licenses coming soon?
  77. 2021 Friday K: The trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin begins on Monday.  He is the main defendant in the trial of four MPD officers involved in the death of George Floyd last May.  The city of Minneapolis as well as Hennepin County are fearful of mob violence and thus plan to spend up to $1 million securing not only the courthouse but five police precincts, government buildings and county buildings.  $645 thousand will be directed into fencing, additional law enforcement, and who knows?  Maybe even Minnesota National Guard.  Much like Democrats in Washington, D.C. have established “Fort Pelosi,” city and county officials want to follow the same strategies.  The fact that state Attorney General Keith Ellison, a Democrat Muslim, is personally trying the case could be reason enough for the extra security.  It sounds as though Officer Chauvin might be found innocent even though they are charging him with 2nd degree and possibly 3rd degree homicide as well as manslaughter which does not say much about Ellison’s prosecutorial abilities.  You heard it here first.
  78. 2021 Friday L: Although Democrats are celebrating the recent jobs report, 4.1 million Americans have been unemployed for six months or longer while another 3.5 million have completely left the work force.  Add to that the loss of 61,000 construction jobs- which the government lays at the feet of ‘severe weather conditions’ and not at the feet of Joe Biden who with the stroke of a pen eliminated thousands of heavy construction jobs.  Things will only continue to worsen thanks to the illegal alien invasion along the southern border.   Still, Democrats are claiming success by negotiating an agreement to continue jobless benefits of $300 per week for the unemployed until September 09, 2021.  At what point will the Chi-Coms say, “NO MORE MONEY?”  We suspect soon, about the same time the landing craft begin dropping their gates on the shores of Taiwan.
  79. 2021 Friday M: California health officials announce that as of April 1, 2021, people will be able to attend Major League Baseball games as well as outdoor concerts and other functions while NBA games and other indoor events remain off-limits.  Of course, masks will still have to be worn or the ‘mask police’ will come and arrest you.   In other Chi-Vi news, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster is lifting face mask requirements in restaurants and other facilities including government seeing as how cases of the Wuhan Meat Market Malady continue to lessen.  The governor is placing the responsibility onto citizens to do what they deem to be correct.
  80. 2021 Friday N: Diners enjoying an evening out in a restaurant in Mogadishu, Somalia, got the surprise of their lives when an explosives-laden vehicle crashed in through the front, detonated, killing at least 10, injuring another 30, with many more feared to be trapped in the rubble.   The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes once again.  We hope the diners had not yet paid their checks.  In other foreign news, YouTube is removing five channels utilized by the Myanmar junta calling the shots in Burma.  Liberals are angry that the generals in Myanmar are doing what the Democrats in Washington, D.C. are doing, i.e., launching a coup against the country with which they are charged to protect.  Thug politicians despise copycats. 
  81. 2021 Friday O: Speaking of the Democratic-Socialists, they are following the plan used by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan who created a coup, had his loyal thugs ‘crush it,’ and then arrested and imprisoned tens of thousands of his ‘enemies’ within government, the military, law enforcement, and among the citizens of a once-proud country.   Something else of interest, Tucker Carlson on Fox News aired a story tonight in which, he said- no kidding!- the federal government is going to bestow an award on every National Guard trooper at the Capitol- the Presidential Inauguration Support Ribbon- that if true is the most bull crap thing we’ve ever heard since President Barack Obama considered creating an award for the U.S. military for NOT firing back at jihadists if civilians were in the area.  Yet, as you should recall, President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden (at the time) droned more innocent civilians than terrorists during their eight years at a reported 90-percent innocents killed per 10-percent Islamist thugs.  My, my, my!
  82. 2021 Friday P: Ex-Dallas Police Chief Renee Hall told Dallas reporters that a police officer suspected of ordering a double kidnapping followed by a double murder which apparently occurred was allowed to remain on the job for longer than 18 months instead of being placed on administrative leave.  The Dallas County D.A., the Dallas P.D., and the Feds wanted to allow Officer Bryan Riser to remain on the jobs so as not to arouse suspicion.  Apparently, his crimes were not connected to his job as a law enforcement officer although no additional details have been released.  Current Police Chief Eddie Garcia says they have ‘no known motive’ for the crimes committed by Officer Riser.  
  83. 2021 Friday Q: Since the Democratic-Socialist predicted QAnon invasion of the Capitol yesterday didn’t pan out, the Dems are now saying, ‘it’s on for March 20, 2021, so everyone will have to flee who works in Congress while the National Guard will remain into May (or longer).’  Why the Democrats say this moronic bulls**t is beyond us because IF an invasion was coming, they wouldn’t just magically appear out of thin air.  They would have to either parachute in or would have to assemble outside the capital for approximately one week during which time the Democrats could launch air-and-artillery strikes on them, sending them scurrying back into their QAnon sewers.  The American people must stand up to this insanity and not allow their elected leaders to continue perpetuating it.  Otherwise, the RED STATES and counties are going to secede and leave pockets of BLUE POLITICIANS isolated in pockets and islands.
  84. 2021 Friday R: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1639 with a jackpot of $55 million up for grabs: 10, 11, 17, 27, 54, and Mega 20.  Out of 52,457 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,996 apiece.
  85. 2022 Saturday:  Maybe there’ll be an update, maybe there won’t.  Then again, the Joestapo could shut us down.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The Band’s success was relatively short-lived which was sad, but the band was fraying at the seams.  The next album they released was “Moondog Matinee” (October 15, 1973) featured no new material, but all covers of classic rock and rockabilly tunes the group played in their earliest day.  The band features the same lineup of  Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).  Sadly, success and too much time together on the road and in the studio combined with all the excesses stardom brings was proving to be difficult to fight.  One can hear the fabric ripping if one listens closely enough to the music.  Ah, well, even having issues, it’s still an album worth owning which is why we hope everyone will seek it out, give it a good listen, and then pick it up in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be extremely glad you did.

TODAY IN HISTORY, SATURDAY MARCH 05, 2022, BLOG POST #4,470

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

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…


Saturday, March 05, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to do the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, as well as Alpert’s solo career, somewhere around 2035.  We hope you will remain with us.

[ii] We promoted the music of Blossom Toes beginning on Monday, 01-June-2015 through Sunday, 07-June-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and add them to your growing music collection.

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Dire Straits sometime in 2021-2022.  Please stay tuned.

[iv]When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[v] When the time will be right for the presentation of Elvis Presley is unknown but if we are still going strong in the 2030s, we expect to do so.  Please, stay tuned.

[vi] We promoted the music of Led Zeppelin- among other numerous interconnected bands beginning with the Yardbirds on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through vocalist Paul Rodgers of both Free and Bad Company on Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope you will check them all out.

[vii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  This presentation included the Jefferson Starship, too, of which, the artist was NOT a member.

[viii] Hugo Chavez should be frying in hell.  The scum was such a believer in the strength of socialism that his Cuban doctors killed him via their shoddy treatment.  The POS should have sought U.S., UK, or even Russian medical treatment and perhaps he would still be alive.  And this is the crap that socialist candidate Bernie Sanders, senator from Vermont, wants to force on Americans?

[ix] Everyone involved in the coup to remove Trump from office, destroy his family and his businesses should be in prison.  Lock them up, President Trump, because this f**king scum would sure as hell lock YOU up.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana. The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries. Good, let them be the guinea pigs.

  59. 2015 Tuesday: According to Brainy History, U.S. President Barack Obama[ix] vetoes the Keystone XL Pipeline project, which would extend the existing Keystone pipeline and connect Canadian oil directly to U.S. Gulf Coast refineries; environmentalist nuts claim the pipeline extension will add to climate change.

  61. 2017 Friday: J.C. Penney- the company that set the standard for commercial retail stores- announces that it’s going to close between 120 to 130 stores as well as two distribution centers.   The store has made poor decisions by bringing in younger, more hip leaders in the organization that have trashed the brand and ruined the legacy of its founder.
  62. 2018 Saturday: The U.N. Security Council unanimously demanded a 30-day cease-fire across Syria to deliver humanitarian aid and evacuate the wounded, as the death toll reached 500 from a Syrian bombing campaign in the rebel-held suburbs of Damascus.  Unfortunately, the cease-fire failed to take hold.  Elsewhere, the body of the Rev. Billy Graham arrived at the library bearing his name in Charlotte, N.C., where he would lie in repose for two days.  Meanwhile, at the Winter Olympics in South Korea, American men won the gold medal in curling in a decisive upset of Sweden; it was only the second curling medal in U.S. history.  (Editor’s note: curling is a bullshit sport).  Finally, in the aftermath of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre 2018 at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, WOKE liberal corporations such as Hertz Rent-a-Car, United Airlines, Delta Airlines, and First National Bank of Omaha sever ties with the National Rifle Association.
  63. 2019 Sunday: In the 91st Academy Awards, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the film about Freddie Mercury and Queen[x] wins four big awards while “Black Panther,” “Green Book” (Best Picture), and “Roma” which had four awards.  It was tough going between “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Black Panther,” both films were extremely popular.  It’s a shame Chadwick Boseman couldn’t have won Best Actor.
  64. 2020 Tuesday: Armenia closes its border with Iran following the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in that country.  Oman- in the Persian Gulf- shuts off air traffic from Iran into its country.  In Italy, another 74 cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu brings the country’s number of cases to 224 what with another four fatalities.  Next, due to South Korea’s outbreak of coronavirus, Vietnam announces its airlines will suspend flight to the country the following day.   In the United States, reported cases are now at 53 as they begin to spread in the Pacific Northwest.  Pakistan’s airlines suspend flights to the People’s Republic of China as it attempts to arrest the number of cases coming to its borders.  Around the Persian Gulf, various nations are reporting their first cases while in Europe, Spain reports its first cases.  
  65. 2021 Wednesday: Day 36 of the Biden Regime- Sean Hannity reports that the Democrats  are striving to find a way with which, they can remove the nuclear codes from the responsibilities of the president, i.e., the commander-in-chief which in this case is ‘Joe Biden’ (in truth, Barack Obama via Kamala Harris).  House Democrats want to hold sole authority for launching nuclear weapons should the necessity arise the United States needs to launch them.  Why would the Democrats be striving to weaken the powers of the president? 
  66. 2021 Wednesday A: Much to the disgust of New York Attorney General Leticia James, the ever-volatile chief lawmaker of the Empire State, no charges will be filed against the seven Rochester police officers involved in the death of druggie Daniel Prude, a doped-up fool who was naked but for a spit hood on his head.  Ms. James sought to make the case a focal point of her career, but her hopes were dashed when a grand jury found the officers behaved within department policy. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday B: Failed Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is a ‘yes vote’ on the confirmation of Judge Merrick Garland to be the nation’s next attorney-general.  “Cocaine Mitch” joins ranks with several other RINOs to announce a ‘yes vote’ for the wily evader of all pertinent questions.   Elsewhere, 13 Republican House members urge the FCC chair to back ‘free speech’ over leftist demands for ‘censorship’ of all speech other than what they approve.   Meanwhile, the Dems hold hearings on Capitol Hill in the House with which to forge ahead of de-platforming One America News, Newsmax, and Fox News Channel.  We expect they will soon come after Talk Radio as well as online speech in blogs.    Finally, 14 House Republicans are requesting the FBI provide information on just how deep Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell’s ties go to communist China.  The Republicans want to know just how compromised the government is by the Democrat’s schlepping of a Chi-Com intelligence agent.  We want to know the answers, too.
  68. 2021 Wednesday C: The White House press briefing room is cleared and cleaned after an unnamed reporter tests positive for the Chi-Com Bat Flu.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Supreme Court is set to hold hearings on Republican-requested curbs on the Democrats scheme to federalize ALL voting via the H.R. 1 ‘For the People’ bulls**t bill currently being pushed by the Dems.  This bill is wholly unconstitutional.   Elsewhere, RINO Congressman Fred Upton, Michigan 6th District, finds himself censured yet again over his recent vote to expel Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from the haloed halls of Congress over her support of President Donald J. Trump.  Cass County, Michigan, slapped the censure on him today.   Finally, former President Barack Hussein Obama says that ‘white resentment and resistance’ is what stalled discussion of reparations for those descended from slaves.[xi]
  69. 2021 Wednesday D:  Free Speech founder Bradley Smith says the ‘Democrats targeting conservatives is a rank abuse of power.’  Yet, the Democrats are working overtime to prevent conservative speech being heard anywhere.  Elsewhere, another federal judge bans the enforcement of the ban of deporting illegal aliens.  Under the Biden regime, ALL illegal aliens can remain in the country.  Also- why aren’t the Democrats weeping and wailing over the big blue Quonset huts down along the southern border filled to the brim with the 5,000 illegal aliens being apprehended per day?  When Trump was president, they were gnashing their teeth, smearing their fetid bodies with ashes, donning sackcloth, and scourging their backs.  Now, not so much.  Hypocrites.
  70. 2021 Wednesday E: The International Olympic Committee is preparing to announce its preferred bidder for the 2032 Summer Olympics.  Who could it be?  Russia?  The Chi-Coms?  Iran?  We’ll have to wait and see.  Speaking of Iran, people are speculating that all the missiles being fired out of the crap-hole country are a message directed at the ‘Biden administration.’   Elsewhere, everyone was awaiting information as to when the court date for aged rocker Bruce “I Love Obama” Springsteen[xii] were going to be.  Then, we heard the court threw out the drunken driving charges against the “Boss.”   In other sad news, the Cancel Culture now labels the movie, “Grease,” as being BAD.  It’s bad because they claim there’s misogyny, that it’s sexist, that it’s homophobic, and that it slut-shames.’  Gee whiz sounds like a movie everyone should see.  This is the trouble when a bunch of morons attempts to judge the past by the present.  Remember lefties, one day, YOU will be the ones a future generation is judging.   
  71. 2021 Wednesday F: A recent anthropological study suggests that when early humans came to the Americas between 10-12 thousand years ago (although evidence suggests human habitation in North America as far back as 60,000 years), dogs traveled here with them.   In other news, an upcoming U.S. report lays the blame for the death of U.S.-Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi directly at the feet of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday G: Democrats are set to vote on their PORKULUS, aka the COVID-19 Relief Bill this Friday.  Out of $1.9 trillion (money being borrowed from the Chi-Coms), $350 billion is going to state and local governments (think Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, Mayor Bill Di Blasio, Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, Mayor Eric Garcetti, and other BIG BLUE STATE liberal locales.  Another $86 billion is going to fund union pension plans (think teachers’ unions and the like), $129 billion to schools, whether they reopen or not, another $15 billion to Medicaid expansion (think FREE healthcare for illegal aliens), $30 billion for public transit (liberals hate private cars), and at least $500 million for the arts, humanities, museums, and libraries.  ONLY 9-percent of this appalling amount of cash is going to Chinese Virus needs.  Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says, ‘it’s crazy to borrow money to fund this liberal wish list of bailouts, handouts, giveaways, and bull crap.’  However, more than 150 BIG BUSINESS executives support this insanity as they hope to latch their grubby mitts onto this handout of money borrowed from Beijing.    
  73. 2021 Wednesday H: Congressman Michael Waltz, R-FL, serving on the House task force on the Chi-Coms says there is NO way the Chi-Coms should host the Olympics and that to have the American flag flying in the PRC would be wrong.  The Chi-Coms bear full responsibility for the deaths of victims of the ‘VID and that to honor them would be to dishonor everyone else. 
  74. 2021 Wednesday I: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 112,214,084 confirmed cases, +389,387, 2,487,568, confirmed deaths, +10,900, and 63,368,513 confirmed recoveries, +269,020.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,526,532 confirmed cases, up 63,214 from yesterday’s reporting, 507,469 confirmed deaths, UP 2,234, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last four-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 178,955 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the hell is it you feeble old Chi-Com stooge?  It seems that everyone around ‘Pro-China Joe’ is ‘Pro-Chi-Coms.’
  75. 2021 Wednesday J: 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: 3,543,162 confirmed cases, 49,895 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,000 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 339,051 confirmed cases, 4,947 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Oklahoma: currently, they have 421,010 confirmed cases, 4,264 confirmed deaths, and 403,159 confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 759,572 confirmed cases, 5,634 confirmed deaths, and 712,555 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Mexico: 2,052,266 confirmed cases, 181,809 confirmed deaths, and 1,607,869 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, medical researchers now fear coronavirus variants.  Will they subject us to continued lockdowns, restrictions, and intimidation?  F**k them.  Next, the ‘Biden administration’ says it’s shipping 14.5 million doses of the Wuhan Virus Crisis vaccine to the states this week.   Finally, the FDA says that Johnson & Johnson’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine meets emergency usage standards.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday K:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,961.86, UP 424.51 points (+1.35%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,597.97, UP 132.77 points (+0.99%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,925.43, UP 44.06 points (+1.14%).  The price of GOLD is $1,804.00 per troy oz., +6.10 (+0.34%) while the price of SILVER is $28.01 per troy ounce, +0.15 (+0.52%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,275.40 per troy oz, +17.50 (+1.39%) while the price of COPPER is $4.32 per pound, +0.02 (+0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,442.50 per troy oz, +89.50 (+3.80%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.45 per barrel, +0.23 (+0.36%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.36.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000020 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, new home sales are up by 4-percent whereas new mortgages are down by 11-percent.
  77. 2021 Wednesday L: The state attorney general of West Virginia- Patrick Morrissey- rejects lawmakers’ calls to ban or censor news programming.   Meanwhile, Donald Trump teases his upcoming speech at CPAC by suggesting that he’s going to blast enfeebled Joe Biden and tease his upcoming 2024 run for the White House.  This would explain why the Dems are seeking to make Joe Biden a ‘prime minister’ and neuter his presidency (if you can call it that).  Next, noted legal scholar Jonathan Turley suggests the ‘new red scare’ is intimidating conservative voices into silence.  Regarding this, Arizona GOP Congressman Andy Biggs says the ‘pressure on media platform providers to silence conservative voices is intense.  Finally, Palm Beach County, Florida, refuses to lower flags for famed radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday M: Stay tuned for tonight’s Powerball and Super Lotto drawings.  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3537 with a $23 million on the line: 07, 34, 38, 44, 47, and Mega 07.  Out of 113,786 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but no Mega for a prize of $18,478.  One ticket was sold at a Chevron in Los Angeles, CA  while the second was at Sky Fuel in El Cajon, CA 92021.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball #823 with a $90 million jackpot just waiting to be grabbed by some lucky individual: 04, 33, 43, 53, 65, and Powerball 21.  Out of 56,233 winning tickets, ONE person had FOUR numbers PLUS the Powerball for a prize of $32,139.
  79. 2021 Wednesday N: A former aid to New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo details the ongoing sexual harassment she suffered at the hands of this slack-jawed bottom-feeder.  Shame, Andrew, shame.  Elsewhere, a misguided poll reports that a majority of Republicans back Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion Chinese Virus Relief Bill.  We do not believe this report.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasts the Democrats’ attempt at de-platforming conservative news media sites.  He also says that President Donald J. Trump’s help in retaking the House for the GOP is going to be extremely important.   Next, failed- and- censured Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, RINO, continues bad-mouthing President Donald J. Trump, blaming him for the Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter- led Capitol Hill Riots of January 6, 2021, the very same riots used by Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to turn Washington, D.C.’s Capitol Hill and White House into a Baghdad-like Green Zone.  Some wag on Newsmax said that Congresswoman Cheney is auditioning for a future job on CNN (or better- MSNBC).  Liz, from all of us to you, “SHUT YOUR RINO MOUTH!”  Congressman McCarthy whip this RINO into line or strip her of her committee assignments the same way the RINOs did Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor-Greene.   
  80. 2021 Wednesday O: Grant Stinchfield reports on Newsmax that Chi-Com facial recognition software is being used in the United States.   As he says, ‘overreaching surveillance in the U.S. is infringing on every American’s civil liberties.’  As he says, the Chi-Coms tested the software on Uighur Muslims who slave away in Xinjiang concentration camps on behalf of Coca-Cola, Nike, Apple, and other global corporations (as well as have their organs harvested for the global organ market) and now with the help of Democrats like ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden and others are transforming the entire world into a vast surveillance state.  Speaking of ‘Pro-China Joe,’ the old coot he’s also revoking Trump-imposed bans on the numbers of foreign workers and Green Card holders allowed into the United States.  In a country beset by Chi-Com-caused Panda Pandemic unemployment, ‘Old Joe’ is flooding the country with hundreds of thousands (and soon millions) of people who are going to Americans’ jobs.  Time for the RED STATES to form a new country and abandon ship.   In other news, calls for the impeachment of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continue to grow led by Democrats in state government.
  81. 2021 Wednesday P: Jen Psaki says 11 million illegal alien fence-jumpers and river-swimmers and visa-overstays will soon have a pathway to citizenship.  The Dems continue braying about ’11 million, 11 million, 11 million’ when in fact, sources within the government say the number is closer to 30 to 50 million illegal aliens hiding in the shadows except, of course, when they commit crimes on one another and against U.S. citizens.  When the 11 million illegals are ‘legalized,’ they are going to receive free health care, free housing, free food stamps, free in-state tuition, free transportation, free this, free that while American citizens foot the bill and languish without jobs. 
  82. 2021 Wednesday Q: Ghana receives 600,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for the Chi-Vi vaccine via the United Nations program with which vaccines will be distributed to low-income countries such as Ghana.  The United States develops the vaccine in record time and then the U.N. via its COVAX program sends them to Third World countries.  Good, let them be the guinea pigs.  Next, the White House says a call between President Biden and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman will ‘happen soon.’  White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters Wednesday that a classified U.S. report confirms the fact that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman ordered the hit on Jamal Khashoggi.  C’ est la vie.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album released by Fairport Convention- “Chicago 1970”- came out on August 07, 2020.  The album featured a stripped down, lean, mean, music-fighting machine featuring NO female vocalist for the first time in the group’s history.  However, the band did feature Richard Thompson (guitars, vocals, and other stringed instruments), Simon Nichol (guitars, vocals), Dave Pegg (basses, mandolins, vocals), Dave Swarbrick (fiddle, mandolins, vocals, and viola), and Dave Mattacks (drums and percussion).  You can see, hear, and feel Richard Thompson’s growing power within the band, power that would eventually propel him out on his own being a rocker at heart.  We love this album as we know you will so why waste time?  Seek it out now, give it a listen, and make it a part of your daily listening enjoyment.  You will be glad you did.  Undoubtedly!

TODAY IN HISTORY, THURSDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2022, BLOG POST #4,452

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

Wednesday, February 24, 2021, Today in History Blog Post:

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

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


Thursday, February 24, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two different occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

[ii] Juan Peron’s wife, Eva Peron, is the woman who that dingbat from the Bronx, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez models her loser self after which is why we have bestowed upon her the name, “Baby Evita.”

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Steve Miller Band beginning on Wednesday, 27-July-2011 through Wednesday, 24-August-2011 and then did a second stint on Sunday, 20-April-2014.  We hope you will check the music of this amazing San Francisco, California, acid-rock blues band.

[iv] We definitely look forward to presenting the music of Joe Cocker, the famed British ex-bricklayer who blew the minds of the world at the 1969 Woodstock Music and Arts Festival.  Please stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will begin promoting the music of George Thorogood but when we do you will be the first to know. 

[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.    The album, “Help!” appeared on Tuesday, 15-November-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[vii] In 2020, Democrats are whining that Donald Trump wanted a quid pro quo from Ukraine to get U.S. military aid.  Yet here, we have a prime example as to WHY and HOW foreign aid is doled out by countries around the world.  President Jimmy Carter said that ‘he would consider human rights abuses before doling out American aid to countries around the world.  Quid pro quo?  You had better flipping believe it and a damned good one in our view so Democrats, stop with the f**king sniveling, enough is enough already.

[viii] In 2019, the question is, “Is the late John Dingell looking UP or is he looking DOWN?

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

[x] We began promoting the music of Queen- as well as its individual members (Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon)- on Monday, 14-January-2019 through Monday, 01-April-2019.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

[xi] The real reason as to WHY talk of reparations stalled is because (1) it’s crazy, there is NO one alive today descended from slavery prior to 1865 and (2) Democrats love talking about it but will never do anything to solve it as once they solve it, they can no longer use it as a drum to beat around the clock.  Besides, there are so many interracial couples, kids, and others so how is it going to work, is the WHITE spouse going to hand the BLACK spouse a check?  What’s more, what the liberals never tell you is that like the COVID-19 relief, the recipients will have to pay taxes on this money.  When it comes to liberals there are no FREE lunches.  Period.  It’s also important to note that Obama would never have been elected TWICE without white voters so Mr. ‘Unqualified President (due to being born in Kenya and not in the United States) Obama, STFU.

[xii] We will never promote the music of this no-talent POS.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

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

Can the new ‘Red Army’ subjugate Ukraine with 150-180,000 troops? If the Ukrainians wage war against them like Saddam Hussein’s dead-enders did against the Bush #43-led invasion, the Russkies won’t be reaching the Channel coast anytime soon. The Russkies failed in Afghanistan and will fail again unless something bigger is afoot…enter the Dragon, the Red Dragon…

54. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2022, UPDATE A:

Can the new ‘Red Army’ subjugate Ukraine with 150-180,000 troops?  If the Ukrainians wage war against them like Saddam Hussein’s dead-enders did against the Bush #43-led invasion, the Russkies won’t be reaching the Channel coast anytime soon.  The Russkies failed in Afghanistan and will fail again unless something bigger is afoot…enter the Dragon, the Red Dragon…

  1. 2022 Wednesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole: 429,781,998 confirmed cases, +1,822,263, 5,935,581 confirmed deaths, +11,534 and 358,418,232 confirmed recoveries, +2,534,192. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 80,366,697 confirmed cases, UP 96,675 from yesterday’s reporting, 966,393 confirmed deaths, UP +3,026,[i] and 52,447,632 confirmed recoveries, UP 253,888 We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]    
  2. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 517,009 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 153,747 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in THIRTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 399 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Wednesday 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: 8,928,845 confirmed cases, 84,649 confirmed deaths, and 8,844,196 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it).  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,838,185 confirmed cases, 68,955 confirmed deaths, and 3,921,624 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 234,835 confirmed cases, 1,304 confirmed deaths, and 233,531 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,409,253 confirmed cases, 11,615 confirmed deaths, and 1,397,638 confirmed recoveries (same numbers yet again).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Maine: they have 222,925 confirmed cases, 1,971 confirmed deaths, and 220,954 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,589,333 confirmed cases, 10,075 confirmed deaths, and 3,467,926 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Faeroe Islands, 160th place on the list: 32,044 cases of the virus, 24 confirmed death and 7,693 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,131.76, DOWN 464.85 points (-1.38%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,037.49 DOWN 344.03 points (-2.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,225.50, DOWN 79.26 points (-1.84%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $93.35 per barrel, +1.25 (+1.29%).  The price of GOLD is $1,914.70 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.23%) while the price of SILVER is $24.61 per troy ounce, +0.05 (+0.21%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,095.80 per troy oz, +4.10 (+0.38%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, -0.02 (-0.54%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,477.69 per troy oz., -4.34 (-0.18%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,550.00 per troy oz., +150.00 (+0.82%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,510,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,336.00 per USD/T, +33.00 (+1.00%). The price of ZINC is $3,622.00 per USD/T., +17.00 (+0.47%).   The price of COCOA is $2,626.00 per USD/T, +26.00 +1.00%).  The price of LUMBER is $1,277.00 USD 1,000 board feet +30.00 (+2.41%).[vi]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.31 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.89 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.27.    In Macedonian Denar, one greenback equals 54.26 and in Malagasy Ariary, a buck equals 3,970.00 and in Malawian Kwacha, one dollar equals 795.95 of theirs.[vii]       
  6. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.752 per gallon, $3.487 in Florida, $4.530 in Hawaii, and $3.982 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Indiana- $3.363.  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 134th HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Latvia: $6.811 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,147,151,728,277 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 Belgium the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Taiwan.  The seat of government of the European Union holds $235,000,000,000 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 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Satellite images show new masses of Russian military might within 10 miles of its borders with Ukraine.  Next, Western governments are trembling in their bunkers tonight as ‘Russian rebels’ in eastern Ukraine are asking Russian troops to enter the country so as to provide them protection from the depredations of the Ukrainians.   Everyone is prophesying the Russians are going to spill across the borders and begin the drive on Kyiv within 48 hours.  These same Western leaders believe that a ‘red army’ composed of 150,000 soldiers will explode west across Europe, will arrive at the English coast within a month, and then will do what Adolf Hitler was unable to do, and that is to launch an invasion across the English Channel, subjugate England, and then on to the New World.  Please.  Give us a break. Look at what happened to George W. Bush in Iraq with 135,000 soldiers.  A frigging mess to which, he and his corrupt family will be tied forever.
  8. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- Unfortunately, Russia is indeed invading Ukraine as you read this, this evening.  Russian airborne forces began attacking Kyiv while armored units heading south from Belarus and Russia proper as well as from the Crimea heading north are driving into the country.  Seaborne landings are occurring at and around the port city of Mariupol which means the Russians are trying a quick lockdown of the country.  They more or less followed the same path when they invaded Afghanistan back in 1979 what with airborne landings directly into Kabul and a quick decapitation of the government.   The United Nations is urging Vladimir Putin to ‘give diplomacy a chance.’
  9. 2022 Wednesday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Today is Day No. 327 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this esteemed position and Day No. 241 since she arrived there to do an unattended photo op there.  Okay, here are the stats as compiled by the world-renowned American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.  First, here is the cost of caring for this illegal alien riffraff the past 54 days: $318,116,268.  Next, here is the cost of caring for this illegal alien garbage the past 419 days: $41,965,412,687.  Imagine the good this money could do for the American people.  Next, we estimate that 517,732 illegals have crossed the border into the U.S. over the course of the past 54 days.  Fourth and final stat, we estimate that here in the U.S., there are approximately 42,758,936 illegal aliens residing in the U.S., sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats.  We believe the number is closer to 85-125 million illegal aliens which is Godawful and must be stopped.  Round them up and deport all of them, down to the smallest squalling brat in its mother’s arms.
  10. 2022 Wednesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Sweating bullets, Canadian Prime Minister Justin “Little Xi” Trudeau rolls back his extension of dictatorial powers under the Emergency Powers Act today.  Just yesterday, his Xi Jinping-like regime was granted an extension under which, it could mobilize the powers of a police state against its peaceful citizens.   Here in the U.S., a new Trafalgar poll says that 55-percent of Americans disapprove of this wannabe communist’s actions which means don’t expect Americans to be visiting your shit-hole country anytime soon.  We also haven’t forgiven you, ‘Little Xi’ for having helped the Chi-Coms, the Democratic Party, and the RINOs for stealing the 2020 Presidential Election.

  16. 2022 Wednesday O: President Donald J. Trump News- In the first 48 hours since President Donald J. Trump’s “Truth Social” media site went live, more than 500,000 users signed up.  Wow.  In other Trump-related news, former Senator David Perdue, R-GA, says ‘the endorsement of President Trump in the Peach State goes a long ways.’  We are rooting for Senator Perdue to win the governor’s mansion in November.   (Interesting note- several of the prosecutors in the ‘criminal case’ against President Donald J. Trump have resigned leaving the case in limbo).
  17. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster- You know things are going bad for this corrupt regime when Congresswoman Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, CPUSA-MI 13th congressional district, is going to offer a rebuttal to next Tuesday’s Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address.  Wow.  This ain’t good and as far as we know, she’s NOT the only one.  There might be one or two others.   Add to this the fact that a number of prominent Republican politicians have declined their invitations to attend this farce next Tuesday.   
  18. 2022 Wednesday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster II- Next, a bipartisan group of lawmakers signed a joint letter to the Biden regime demanding congressional approval before Joe Biden can deploy U.S. troops to Ukraine thus seeing a ’wag the dog’ war in motion.   Finally, a federal grand jury is questioning Hunter Biden’s ex-lovers.  This can’t be good.  Will this lead to the downfall of the Biden regime or will son, Hunter, suffer some sort of ‘Jeffrey Epstein-like accident?’  We remain focused.
  19. : Joe Biden Regime News I- Citing ‘racism,’ the U.S. Department of Justice shuttered its program investigating communist China surveillance and spying programs within the United States, all because the program originated under the President Donald J. Trump Administration.  Even the FBI Director Chris Wray says the ‘Chi-Coms are conducting massive spying operations in the United States’ and the Biden regime- in the hip pocket of the Chi-Coms said, “NO MORE.” 
  20. 2022 Wednesday S: Joe Biden Regime News II- Outrage continues growing over Joe Biden’s weak-kneed response to Vladimir Putin invading ‘Russia’s breadbasket,’ Ukraine.  Congressman James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s Russia sanctions will hurt America more than Vladimir Putin.’  Gasoline prices are going up, up, and up.
  21. 2022 Wednesday T: Political News I- A new AP-NORC poll says that a vast majority of American voters do not want to see the United States play a major role in the strife between Ukraine and Russia.  Next, we learned today that donors to then-Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s mayoral campaign in South Bend, Indiana, received $33 million in city contracts after giving Buttigieg $250,000 plus undisclosed, expensive gifts.  Wow.
  22. 2022 Wednesday U: Political News II- Congressman Don Bacon, R-NE 2nd congressional district says, ‘don’t blame Ukraine for rising inflation, blame Joe Biden.’  Amen.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says he’s committed to finishing work on the southern border wall.  In other news, we learn that Ivanka Trump is in negotiations with the January 06, 2021, House Select Committee, and might possibly cooperate with this fraudulent committee.
  23. 2022 Wednesday V: Political News III- A group of corrupt Democrat lawmakers led by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi and ‘in-bed-with-the-Chi-Coms POS’ Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell demanded ‘we make the world safe for democracy’ by opposing Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.  Sounds like President Woodrow Wilson, another Democrat totalitarian who re-segregated the U.S. armed forces and civil service and who embroiled our country in World War I.   Interesting note: ahead of Joe Biden’s ‘state of the union address’ and converging, freedom-loving trucker convoys, “Mumbles” Pelosi is having her minions once again erecting FORT PELOSI to protect the Capitol.  Nothing says, “WE STOLE AN ELECTION” more than slapping up an ad hoc fort complete with armed soldiers patrolling the streets.
  24. 2022 Wednesday W: Big Tech News- NBC’s ratings are in for the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and they were a bust.  Hardly anyone tuned in to watch the genocide games.  Hell, the Nazis put on excellent summer games in 1936 in Berlin- not that we are bragging up the Nazis, just saying is all- which is amazing because the Chi-Coms have far more wealth and they put on games that North Korea could have done a better job hosting.  How embarrassing.  Also- interesting to note- is that unlike in communist China, athletes in 1936 could be more vocal in their disdain for the Nazi regime and no, black American athlete Jesse Owens did NOT disappear after beating the so-called ‘master race’ in several track events whereas in communist China, everyone had to remain mum if they didn’t want to end up in Xinjiang Province making LeBron James’ crappy basketball shoes.
  25. 2022 Wednesday X: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3641 what with a $19 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 05, 10, 15, 31, 32, and Mega 25.  Out of 99,021 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $17,982 apiece.  The first ticket was sold at (1) Chevron in Baker, CA 92309 and (2) 7-Eleven in El Cajon, CA 92019.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #954 with a jackpot of $45 million up for grabs: 06, 17, 21, 35, 64, and Power 18. Out of 36,140 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winner was one person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $20,059.

Trump brought this amazing miracle into being along with Kim Kardashian and others concerned about the travesties of justice.
  56. 2019 Friday: Driving his enemies insane, President Donald J. Trump declares a national emergency as wave after wave of illegal alien caravans attempt to storm the southern U.S. border so he can divert funds and begin construction of the southern border wall.  Meanwhile, after Amazon announced, it was going to build its new HQ in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took them to task, not understanding that in order to get something, you give something.  Anyhow, Amazon announces it’s a done deal- they’re going elsewhere- to Virginia.  Friendlier business climate there.
  57. 2020 Saturday: The COVID-19 growing global pandemic reaches into Europe now.  An 80-year-old Chinese ‘tourist’ dies in France from the Wuhan Flu.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Australian officials cancel a visit to Great Britain due to the Brits allowing Huawei to build their 5-G network.  Australia like the United States wants nothing to do with Huawei because of Chinese Communist Party’s use of its electronics to eavesdrop on everyone around the world.  Think TikTok.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, Houthis raise a big fuss over Saudi airstrikes that claim the lives of at least 30 ‘civilians.’ 
  58. 2021 Monday:  We heard early today that there is ‘bipartisan support’ for an independent commission to delve into the causes of the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots when Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi knows the precise cause: being in league with Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs who infiltrated the Trump supporters to pull off one of the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS in the history of American politics.  Add to that the waving off of proffered 10,000 National Guard troops AHEAD of January 6 and you know all you need to know.  It was a set-up hence why they lie about the death of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick, why we don’t know the results of his autopsy and why they cremated him as quickly as they did.  Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has much for which to answer, folks, which is why she is appointing an ‘independent commission’ (yeah, right) to look into the RIOTS.  Speaking of Officer Brian Sicknick, the New York Times quietly updates the truth on his death saying it most likely was in response to some kind of irritant sprayed in his face such as bear repellant.
  59. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden announces he will speak at a virtual G 7 summit on the ‘Panda Pandemic,’ aka the Chinese Virus, the Wuhan Virus, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Yellow Fever 2020-2021.  Keep a close eye on the screen to see how they manipulate the ‘speech’ by Biden so as to see the earpiece telling him what to say and do.  Word of warning- Joe, don’t stick your wife’s finger in your mouth.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues dismantling the extremely necessary Trump Era policy of illegal alien asylum speakers remaining in Mexico.  Now, they can enter the U.S. and begin popping out one anchor baby after another.  Diabolical, Joe.  In other ‘Joe Biden news,’ Joe is driving ahead (well, those behind him) to get our guns from us and to eliminate our ability to get them.  Not going to happen, Joe.
  60. 2021 Monday B: Dick Morris speaks out on the Democrats’ ‘bloodlust’ in pursuing Donald J. Trump.  It’s because they have nothing other than “Trump Glue” to hold the Democrats together.  What a shame.  Meanwhile, reputed Chi-Com intelligence agent, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell makes some stupid comment about God’s gender.  Thought you folks were supposed to avoid all gender-related terms on the floor of the House?  Hypocrite.  Speaking of dimwitted Democrats, Orthodox rabbis are calling on House Democratic Party leadership to remove Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar from her position as vice chairperson on the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee.   We have an alternative nickname for Ms. Omar- Ilhan “From the Rivers to the Sea, Palestine will be Free” Omar.   In other left-wing news, Puerto Rico is demanding Congress to consider statehood for the leftist island territory.  They say ‘Congress has a moral responsibility’ to do so.
  61. 2021 Monday C: In the New York City mayoral race, Andrew Yang has hit the necessary threshold in fund-raising to qualify for matching funds.  Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to sink as the effort to remove the POS via recall has surpassed the necessary 1.5 million voter signatures with which to throw him out of office.   In the Empire State, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continues falling in his approval ratings with his critics on all sides of the aisle going after him, accusing him and his bozo brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo, of showboating on TV while thousands of elderly seniors in rest homes were dying of the Chi-Vi due to his horrendous mishandling of the Beijing Bug.  People are so angry with this guy; the state Assembly is considering stripping him of his emergency powers. 
  62. 2021 Monday D: In other U.S. news, the Minneapolis City Council now wants to RE-FUND the police department because everything is going to hell in a handbasket as are many other left-wing cities and towns.  Meanwhile, the Dems are launching an all-out campaign to get Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton out of office.  It shows how effective he is.   Elsewhere, Republican Congressmen Devin Nunes, California, and Jim Jordan, Ohio, demand that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ‘fess up’ on what she knew and when she knew it about security conditions at the Capitol on January 6.  People want answers as to WHY we still have a militarized capitol with fences and troops when they should be deployed along  the southern border.
  63. 2021 Monday E: Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz says that ‘Governor Ron DeSantis would make one hell of a presidential candidate one day.’  Next, following former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s stupid comments regarding Trump’s support among the GOP voters, Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Donald Trump remains the most potent force among the Grand Old Party.’  Speaking of Ambassador Haley, even anti-Trumpers are outraged at her stupid remarks.  Her stock as a presidential candidate has fallen to outhouse levels like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Mitt Romney, Bill Cassidy, Ben Sasse, and other dimwits.   Meanwhile, the GOP plans on trying Joe Biden to the Chi-Coms in every chance they get so as to increase the numbers of wins in 2022 and again in 2024.   Moving on, Pennsylvania GOP Congressman Guy Reschenthaler says, ‘If you don’t think Cancel Culture isn’t coming for you next, wake up!’   In other news, the fact that vandals assaulted the home of Trump attorney Michael Van Der Veen proves just how effective he was in defending his client.  Some maggot scrawled, “TRAITOR,” on his home.
  64. 2021 Monday E: Big Tech now is attacking Pro-Life news services.  Big Tech strikes again. Speaking of Tech, we now know that the Chi-Coms- good friends of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden used secret microchips installed in U.S. computers to spy on US.  How nice.  We should have nuked them when we had the opportunity.  Next, the president of Microsoft says the SolarWinds hack was biggest and most sophisticated in history.  Elsewhere, Parler has managed to return to the Internet via using ‘independent technology.’ 
  65. 2021 Monday F: Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the “U.S. supports militants in Iraq who have executed members of Turkey’s armed forces.  What’s up with that, Joe?  Next, Iran tests a short-range ‘smart missile’ with a radius of about 186 miles.  Elsewhere, Congressman  Michael Waltz, R-FL, urges a boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.  We concur- NO freedom-loving country should participate in the Chi-Com-held Olympics- it’s akin to participating in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin.  F— them. 
  66. 2021 Monday G: Severe winter weather is rampaging through Texas where power outages are ongoing as they are in at least 13 other states.  We hope they’re not using any Chi-Com equipment or software. Refineries in Texas are being forced to shut down due to the weather.  In other news, Ken Cuccinelli, former immigration bigwig in the Trump administration says that Joe Biden’s immigration policies are going to overwhelm the country as illegals are flooding in across the southern border.  We hope troops begin laying minefields along the border to stop this tidal wave.  Elsewhere, John Bachman on Newsmax TV says of the Joe Biden, ‘it’s hard to claim to be a friend of the working class when your policies are rapidly leading to their demise.’  Finally, it’s interesting to note that former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s BIG MISTAKE in using the nuclear option to confirm judicial appointees back in 2013 could see impeachment being used by the GOP to destroy numerous left-wing Democrats in coming years.  We can only hope.  
  67. 2021 Monday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,067,558 confirmed cases, +313,837, 2,405,546, confirmed deaths, +6,773, and 61,277,452 confirmed recoveries, +245,977.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,939,592 confirmed cases, up 32,738 from yesterday’s reporting, 490,672 confirmed deaths, UP 833, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus 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 160,802 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.
  68. 2021 Monday I: 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: 3,484,984 confirmed cases, 47,055 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: 331,164 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wisconsin: currently, they have 607,213 confirmed cases, 6,748 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 730,293 confirmed cases, 5,414 confirmed deaths, and 670,010 confirmed recoveries.
  69. 2021 Monday J: In other news related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the World Health Organization clears the Astrazeneca COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use around the world.   Meanwhile, Brexit leader Nigel Farage says the world is dealing with a virus, NOT the Chi-Vi but the WOKE VIRUS, one that is sweeping the world and one that we absolutely must crush before it crushes us.  Elsewhere, noted investigative journalist Peter Schweizer says that BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris must get their families under control if they wish to keep things on the up-and-up (which they don’t- at least in our views).  
  70. 2021 Monday K: In the African nation of Guinea, health authorities declare an Ebola epidemic.  Meanwhile 58 mostly Western nations unite to oppose detainment of their nationals or detainment of foreign nationals to gain leverage over one nation or the other.  The Chi-Coms do this, the Russians do this, the Iranians really do this, it’s horrible and it must end.  Elsewhere, a rocket attack in the lovely nation of Iraq kills a contractor and wounds a U.S. servicemember.  Finally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledges differences between Joe Biden and himself but remains hopeful the senile old fool in the White House will give him a ring.  Don’t count on it, prime minister, you, and your country must unite with ALL Arab countries to oppose Iran.
  71. 2021 Monday L: County GOP officials in the Pennsylvania counties of Clarion, Centre, Lawrence, Washington, and York censure Senator Pat Toomey who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump this past Saturday in the bogus second impeachment trial.  Ask him to retire.  NOW.   Next, UPDATE on New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo- he is NOW blaming the vast numbers of Chinese Virus deaths on health care and rest home workers but oh, no, NOT me or my policies.  Andrew, a famous Democrat once said, “The buck stops here,” meaning with YOU- murdering f**k.  Noted journalist Bill O’Reilly says that ‘Cuomo is doing rope-a-dope’ to try to cover his ass and to evade punishment that is heading his way.  Elsewhere, the NATO chief says that nations that send troops to various missions should not have to foot all the costs of doing so but that the organization should help.  Next, the soon-to-be-deployed NASA new Mars rover is going to search out signs of ancient life.[v]   Finally, in Palm Beach, as President Donald J. Trump returns from a golf outing, tens of thousands of his supporters lined the streets holding signs and celebrating how much they love the 45th president.  Speaker Pelosi: Trump ain’t going nowhere.   
  72. 2022 Tuesday: What the heck could be happening today?

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] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure, beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[ii] We are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp, but we hope to do it within the next year or so.  You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[iii] We should have promoted the music of Journey around the time we did the music of Santana. We hope to do so sometime within the next 10-12 years.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.

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

[v] We’re hoping the Chi-Com lander is going to crash on the Martian surface, breaking apart into millions of pieces.  Otherwise, they will be lying like they have about ‘growing seeds on the dark side of the moon.’  Lying communist bastards.  Hell, for all we know, when their craft reaches the Red Planet’s surface, it will be carrying COVID-19 seeing as how they are so damned sloppy handling pathogens.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

26. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 26, 2022

Trump that was going to occur next week, citing the American president’s promise of building a wall between the two countries so the U.S. can stop the mass invasion from which, Mexico’s corrupt leaders profit in a variety of ways.

  49. 1998 Monday: President Bill Clinton forcefully denied having an affair with a former White House intern, telling reporters, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” Monica Lewinsky.  He did have sex with her in the antechamber off the Oval Office.  
  50. 1999 Tuesday: President Saddam Hussein of Iraq vowed revenge against the United States in response to airstrikes launched by President Bill Clinton that reportedly killed civilians.  The strikes occurred because the American planes took out Iraqi antiaircraft fire targeting them on the ground as they patrolled No-Fly Zones.
  51. 2003 Sunday: Secretary of State Colin Powell, citing Iraq’s lack of cooperation with U.N. inspectors, said he’d lost faith in the inspectors’ ability to conduct a definitive search for banned weapons programs.  Meanwhile, Super Bowl XXXVII: at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, California, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers beat the Oakland Raiders by a score of 48-21.
  52. 2005 Wednesday: A U.S. Marine helicopter crashed in western Iraq killing 30 Marines and a Navy medic aboard.  Elsewhere, a dumbass man parked his SUV on railroad tracks in Glendale, setting off a crash of two commuter trains that killed 11 people.  The driver of the SUV, most likely an illegal alien, Juan Alvarez, was convicted of murder and sentenced to 11 consecutive life terms.  Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell stepped down from office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President George W. Bush from January 20, 2001, until today.  His successor, Condoleezza Rice took up the post today and served until January 20, 2009.
  53. 2008 Saturday: Illinois Senator Barack Obama wins the South Carolina Democratic Party presidential primary race.
  54. 2009 Monday: New York Democratic Party Senator Kirsten Gillibrand entered the world’s greatest deliberative body on this date. And remains there until this day.  She is junior senator to Charles “Chuck” Schumer, another crackpot Democrat.  Meanwhile, the 75th U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner assumed office on this date.  An independent, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from today until January 25, 2013.
  55. 2010 Tuesday: James Cameron’s film, “Avatar,” surpasses his 1997 film, “Titanic,” becoming the highest-grossing film of all time.
  56. 2011 Wednesday: In Davos, Switzerland, the 41st World Economic Forum convenes.
  57. 2012 Thursday: In a Canberra restaurant on Australia Day, nearly 200 indigenous protesters trap Prime Minister Julia Gillard and opposition leader Tony Abbott inside.  Elsewhere, at a GOP Primary debate in Florida, frontrunners Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich do battle with one another over issues related to illegal immigration, Wall Street, and of course the disastrous Obama administration.   Meanwhile, President Barack Obama gives a speech in Las Vegas in which, he celebrates U.S. domestic oil drilling (really now…) and says that the ‘U.S. is the Saudi Arabia of natural gas.’  Yet eight years later, Democratic-Socialists will be pushing the Green New Deal which gets rid of ALL fossil fuels.  WTF?
  58. 2013 Saturday: According to Brainy History, the hacking cabal known as Anonymous hacks into the U.S. Sentencing Commission website in protest of the recent suicide by Internet activist and American computer programmer, Alan Swartz.  Meanwhile, Leroy “Sugarfoot” Bonner (Guitars/Vocals) of the rock-funk-soul band, the Ohio Players[v], died on this date in Trotwood, Ohio; he was 69.
  59. 2014 Sunday: Prominent Chinese legal activist, Xu Zhiyong, is sentenced to four years in prison; convicted of ‘gathering a crowd to disturb public order,’ the case is evidence that Communist Party leaders wish to expunge any challenges to the power or leadership.
  60. 2015 Monday: Alexis Tsipras, leader of the Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) party, is elected as prime minister of Greece on an anti-austerity platform.
  61. 2016 Tuesday: Seattle, a once-lovely city, now overloaded with homeless people experiences yet another crime in its ‘infamous Jungle’ area, a crime in which two people are shot dead and several others hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.  The Seattle Police Department is searching for the suspects.  Elsewhere, Australian tourists returning home from South America are found to have brought the Zika virus home with them.
  62. 2017 Thursday: Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto cancels a meeting with President Donald J. Trump that was going to occur next week, citing the American president’s promise of building a wall between the two countries so the U.S. can stop the mass invasion from which, Mexico’s corrupt leaders profit in a variety of ways.  In response, President Trump calls for a 20-percent tariff on ALL GOODS flowing north from Mexico.
  63. 2018 Friday: Although creators of cryptocurrency tell us ‘how safe it is,’ hackers manage to steal $535 million of NEM cryptocurrency from the Japanese exchange Coin Check.    
  64. 2019 Saturday: In order to protect their satrap in Venezuela- Nicolas Maduro- the Russians begin flying in private military contractors to provide security for the slow-witted Venezuelan dictator.  This leads the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in a speech before the United Nations for the world’s countries to make their stance known whether they support the illegitimate government in Caracas or not.  The U.S. does not but the Russians, Chi-Coms, Cuba, and other Third World hellholes do.  Concurrently, the Bank of England prohibits the Maduro government from withdrawing more than a billion in gold reserves until the dispute between Maduro and Juan Guaidó as to whom won the election is resolved.
  65. 2020 Sunday:  Afghan government forces backed up by Coalition forces have had enough of the ongoing Taliban violence and launches operations against Taliban forces across nine provinces.  The body toll of the Islamists for the day is about 51 with no sign that Afghan troops going to give them an inch.  Meanwhile in Syria, Syrian government forces are cleaning out jihadists and other terrorists in Idlib Province as the government makes a concerted push to reclaim towns and villages from remaining rebels.   Elsewhere, someone gets ahold of an unreleased portion of the manuscript of former National Security Adviser John Bolton’s upcoming book, “The Room Where It Happened.”  In the unauthorized portion, Bolton says ‘Trump told him that unfreezing aid to Ukraine hinged on whether the government of Volodymyr Zelensky would provide dirt on ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to the administration.
  66. 2021 Tuesday: As Senator Patrick Leahy, D-VT, swears in U.S. senators for the upcoming ‘impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump,’ West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin is joined by Arizona Democrat Senator Kyrsten Sinema vow NOT to vote to overthrow the filibuster as knuckle-dragging Senate “Majority Leader” Chuck Schumer, D-NY, seeks to do.  Speaking of the upcoming second impeachment of former President Donald J. Trump, the Senate holds a vote on whether to impeach or not to impeach the 45th president.  By a vote of 55-45 the Senate votes to move ahead with five of those voting in favor to hold the trial are Republicans: Senators Pat Toomey, Mitt Romney, Susan Murkowski, Ben Sasse, and Susan Collins, respectfully of Pennsylvania, Utah, Alaska, Nebraska, and Maine.  Losers.
  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Speaking of impeachment, noted legal scholar, professor, and trial attorney Alan Dershowitz says that ‘if the chief justice does not preside at the trial, it is BOGUS, that it’s little more than political theater.’  The famed jurist quoted Abraham Lincoln’s famous words regarding the conquered South after the Civil War: ‘with malice towards none and with charity for all,’ noting that the Democrats are doing the exact opposite in their treatment of the former president, his supporters, and those who disagree with what the Democrats are doing.  Regarding the sham impeachment, President Trump is adding another attorney from South Carolina to his defense team- former federal prosecutor Deborah Barbier to his bevy of lawyers. 
  68. 2021 Tuesday B: Subsequently- regarding the upcoming impeachment trial of President Trump, 29 Republican senators will oppose it to their utmost.  Mark Halperin- questions whether Mitch McConnell is reading accurately the mood of the GOP and is now wavering on earlier comments that he would ‘vote to convict Mr. Trump.’  “Cocaine Mitch” is one of the biggest snakes in the U.S. Senate and although he has done some good things, he is little more than an a**-kissing POS of the Democrats.  Trump helped him win HIS election and much like the scorpion on the back of the frog crossing the river, Senate MINORITY Leader McConnell stabbed him in the back.  Kentucky- recall this scumbag NOW.  If you can.
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: Speaking of “Cocaine Mitch,” “CM” and Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Chuck Schumer have arrived at a power-sharing deal that will see all committees with equal numbers of Republicans and Democrats but with Democrats serving as the chairmen-and-women.   Speaking of losers, ‘President’ Joe Biden says, “The impeachment trial must go on,” mumbling whatever his earpiece tells him to say such as ‘if the trial does NOT go forward, it could damage the nation.’  Meanwhile, former President Donald J. Trump has opened an Office of the Former President in Florida, an office with which, he will find qualified conservative candidates to primary RINO scumbags in upcoming elections.  Yesterday, he pledged his full-fledged support to Sarah Huckabee Sanders to run for governor of Arkansas in 2022.  Visit www.45office.com. Contact Mr. Trump there.  In other possible election news, many believe Ohio Republican Congressman Jim Jordan will seek Senator Rob Portman’s seat in 2022 as will Georgia Congressman Doug Collins the seat of pro-China RINO Governor Brian Kemp.  We expect both to win.
  70. 2021 Tuesday D: Kevin McCarthy mocks ‘President’ Joe Biden’s calls for ‘unity.’  The ‘46th president mumbles what his handlers tell him to say then does as they tell him to do which is NOT UNITY.   Google and Microsoft are suspending donations to all Republicans who did not accept the results of the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  Elsewhere, the Goya Foods Board of Directors censures CEO Robert Unanue over his unabashed support of President Donald J. Trump.  In other ‘President’ Biden news, his press secretary- Jen Psaki- does not seem to know a great deal.  When asked by reporters as to WHY the ‘Biden administration’ is not going to stay tough on preventing the Chi-Coms from penetrating the U.S. power grid, she had no answers just like she had no answers regarding Antifa and their continued running amok around the country.  Speaking of Antifa, Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler had to pepper spray a POS Antifa punk for getting in his face in a restaurant.  Good for you.
  71. 2021 Tuesday E: Antifa-infiltrated Capitol Hill protesters continue flaunting their successes at the storming of Capitol Hill on January 6.  Speaking of the event, the woman who ran off with Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s laptop may face a permanent Internet ban once she is out of legal jeopardy.   Speaking of Internet and social media bans, Twitter removes- permanently- the account of My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell’s account yet after ‘removing the account,’ it began retweeting all manner of left-wing messages so how does one lose their account to then have some other entity begin using it?  Evil.  Meanwhile, Florida Democrat Congresswoman Stephanie Murray has a bill that will PROHIBIT anyone with ideas the ruling Democrats don’t like- such as belief the 2020 Presidential Election was full of fraud or in QAnon which does not sound all that far-fetched from holding any kind of elective office or work in government at any level.  Wow.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: A recent Gallup Poll shows that 89-percent of American citizens are dissatisfied with the country.  Go figure: stolen elections, fake news media, social media bans, censorship, harsh restrictions, lockdowns, and Antifa and BLM mobs running amok in the streets, who the hell wouldn’t be?  Meanwhile the head of the Anti-Defamation League wants Twitter to ban the Grand Ayatollah Khamenei for constantly tweeting he wants to kill Jews and erase Israel from the face of the planet.   Elsewhere, Russia says ‘vigorous efforts needed to extend Russia-U.S. New Start arms control treaty.’  Also, as the ‘Biden administration’ presses Russia on releasing Alexei Navalny and imprisoned protesters basically puts it red fist in ‘President Biden’s’ face and brushes the senile fool off.   Finally, former Wisconsin Republican Governor Scott Walker labels the People’s Republic of China as the “New Evil Empire” due to their appalling human rights record.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Alleged Chi-Com spy and honeypot participant Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell says, “The FBI cleared me of any hint of conspiring with the Chi-Coms against my country.’  Bulls**t, no one has cleared you of anything.  In other political news, people are championing Fox News Channel’s chief meteorologist Janice Dean as a potential GOP candidate for the governor of New York seeing as how she is immensely popular and Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo killed both her father-and-mother-in-law by putting COVID-19-infected patients into their rest home.  Yikes.  “Killer Cuomo” had better watch out…
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: The Vatican clears retired U.S. Bishop Joseph Hart of seven abuse charges.  Hart served the church in Cheyanne, Wyoming.  Next, we learn the new iPhone can screw up pacemakers and cause heart attacks.  Love that Chi-Com technology.   Next, we learn that the TSA now has been politicized as Jennifer Kerns of All-American Radio told Newsmax TV: TSA officials are blocking Global Entry of persons who served in the former Trump administration.  WTF!   Elsewhere, in a 78-22 vote in the U.S. Senate, Anthony Blinken is confirmed as the next U.S. Secretary of State even though the Chi-Coms have dumped loads of cash- tens of millions of dollars- into his back pocket.  His predecessor, Acting U.S. Secretary of State Daniel Bennett Smith stepped down from office on this date.[vi]  Also, Janet Yellen takes the oath of office which makes her the official U.S. Treasury Secretary.     In other news, 200 House Republicans vote to uphold the Hyde Amendment which prohibits the use of taxpayer dollars to fund the Pro-Death Movement.
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: In other shameful news, communist Jane Fonda is set to receive the Golden Globes Cecil B. DeMille Award.  Big whoop.  Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki- not wearing a mask and repeatedly wiping her nose with her bare hand- denies that her boss, ‘President’ Joe Biden ever labeled Donald Trump’s travel ban for COVID-19 as xenophobic or racist.  Uh, but he did, Jen!  In another incident of plagiarism, ‘President’ Joe Biden says he will ‘use the military to step up deliveries of the Chi-Vi vaccine.’  Your predecessor already set this in motion.   Also, regarding the Chi-Vi, Dr. Anthony Fauci- the highest-paid putz in the federal government- says he was disturbed by his former boss’ comments on the value of bleach and other disease-killing chemicals.  He maintains the 45th president was talking about ingesting such substances; however, if you listen to the tape, the president was discussing the therapeutic effects of such items and it’s too bad we could not find something that could do the same for the human body.    Finally, Kayleigh McEnany is set to return to Fox News Channel but now, that job offer is on hold.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: DAY SEVEN OF THE BIDEN REGIME- stick around to discover what is going on across the country…well, you will all want to know this: the Fake News Media has now gone down the rabbit hole what with the Fresh Start program in which, much like George Orwell wrote in his classic book, “1984,” will rewrite ALL past news stories to remove unfavorable news about Democrats and will rehabilitate their images and history of doings.  ‘President’ Joe Biden and ‘Vice President’ Kamala Harris definitely need much rehabilitation because both put loads of minorities into prison with their racist criminal justice policies or their enforcement of those policies.   Meanwhile, far-left former Barack Hussein Obama first AG Eric Holder urges his fellow Democrats to STACK THE U.S. SUPREME COURT NOW.  And you honestly believe these people LOVE the United States of America as founded.
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: Governor Gavin Newsom of California is scrambling to reopen California as the move to recall the little POS now has more than 1.2 million signatures.  The problem for him is that very few liked him from the start nor are they in line with his harsh lockdowns and restrictions so when we hit 1.5 million signatures, the man is going to lose office like Gray Davis- another Democrat- did back in 2003 and citizens of the state liked him far more than the current bozo ruining the state.  (PS- he’s Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s nephew- that says so much).  Elsewhere, New Mexico- a state that threw in with “Pro-China Joe” Biden- is now going to feel the brunt of the ‘46th president’s’ energy policies losing thousands of jobs as the Green New Deal politics come to the fore.  Time to find ‘Republican judges’ and do to the Democratic-Socialists what they always do to Republican administrations and that is to hammer, hammer, hammer them with injunction after injunction after injunction.  We can do it so let’s do it!  Texas is beginning to do it NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday L: ‘President’ Joe Biden orders an end to publicly-funded private prisons.  Yet another XO, folks, 20 by our count.  Meanwhile, Senate ‘Majority Leader’ Charles “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says the Dems may advance a COVID-19 Relief Bill sans any GOP participation.  NOTE- whatever relief they give the American people, the American people will have to pay income taxes on whatever amount it is.  Elsewhere, former Democrat Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii labels ‘John Brennan and Adam Schiff as domestic enemies of the United States.  Next, a federal judge hammers ‘President’ Joe Biden’s XO putting all deportations on hold for 100 days.  About flipping time, federal judges, how about an injunction to overturn the halt to the Keystone XL Pipeline.  Finally, “Big Brother Joe” Biden vows to fight systemic racism in the country, racism that he and his former boss, Barack Hussein Obama had eight flipping years to fix and didn’t.  Of course, systemic racism does not exist, why do millions of people seek to come to our country?  Because it’s a wonderful place.
  79. 2021 Tuesday M: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 100,032,461 confirmed cases, +445,377, 2,149,818, confirmed deaths, +13,259, and 55,239,856 confirmed recoveries, +319,710.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 25,604,046 confirmed cases, up 229,745 from yesterday’s reporting, 427,069 confirmed deaths, UP 3,458, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP 36,070.
  80. 2021 Tuesday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,216,365 confirmed cases, 37,577 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 25,903 confirmed cases, 401 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 306,499 confirmed cases, 4,221 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: District of Columbia: currently, they have 35,700 confirmed cases, 888 confirmed deaths, but NO mention confirmed recoveries- come on, Mayor Bowser, share the figures.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 613,340 confirmed cases, 4,498 confirmed deaths, and 534,485 confirmed recoveries. 
  81. 2021 Tuesday O:  THE BIDEN AGENDA IS DESTROYING THE STOCK MARKET.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,937.504 DOWN 22.96 points (-0.74%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,626.07, DOWN 9.93 points (-0.73%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,849.62, DOWN 5.74 points (-0.15%).  The price of GOLD is $1,849.60 per troy oz., -1.10 (-0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $25.50 per troy ounce, -0.038 (-0.15%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,107.20 per troy oz, -0.20 (-0.02%) while the price of COPPER is $3.62 per pound, +0.002 (+0.06%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,325.00 per troy oz, -21.90 (-0.93%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $52.17 per barrel, +0.16 (+0.30%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000031.  In other economic news, Target is giving all hourly workers a bonus of $500.  Don’t forget- you will pay taxes on this money…
  82. 2021 Tuesday P: ‘President’ Joe Biden’s Department of Justice ends the ‘zero tolerance’ rule for illegal aliens seeking to storm the country.   Elsewhere, after writing a BS story in the New Yorker Magazine, the company had to return the National Magazine Award.  One leftwing site after another lies, steals other people’s works, and spreads propaganda, yet they remain open while leftists pursue bloggers like us.  Meanwhile, a tornado touched down in Alabama killing one person and injuring at least 17 others.   Next, the U.S. is seriously considering forcing everyone who wants to board an airliner to take the Chi-Vi test, you know, the nasal swab for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Finally, the man given the nod to take John Robert’s place in the second impeachment trial of former President Donald J. Trump- Vermont Democrat Senator Patrick “Loose Lips” Leahy- suddenly is carted off to the hospital for an unspecified illness.  Crabs?
  83. 2021 Tuesday Q: Here are the numbers for the Mega Millions Draw #1628: 29, 49, 56, 66, 67, and Mega 24.  Out of 76,613 winning tickets, the highest winners in California were three people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $7,078 apiece.
  84. 2022 Wednesday: You know the drill…

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 began promoting the music of the greatest British blues rock band, the Climax Blues Band, beginning on Monday, 16-September-2019 through Sunday, 27-October-2019.  This included the solo efforts of Pete Haycock and Colin Cooper.  We hope you will check them out and add them to your collection.

[ii] We are not sure when we will begin offering albums by the Little River Band as that could be another 5-10 years from now but one day, we most surely will because they are one of the world’s greatest bands.  Seeing them live in the 1970s was a mind-altering experience, my friends.

[iii] Not sure when we will promote the music of Van Halen but when we do, we will also present the music of Sammy Hagar so please stay tuned.

[iv] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[v] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing and what is even more exciting is the fact that the band is still alive today and performing to this day.

[vi] Acting Secretary of State Daniel Bennett Smith first assumed office on January 20, 2021, briefly serving under President Donald J. Trump and then under Joe Biden until today.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

352. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, DECEMBER 18, 2021

69. 2020 Friday A: After we learn that Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court did NOT take the multi-state lawsuit headed by Texas regarding election fraud and corruption because he was AFRAID of mob violence if he did, he throws President Trump a bone by upholding the administration’s edict NOT to include illegal aliens in the 2020 Census as we shouldn’t. Illegals are NOT American citizens and have no right to anything in this country other than a quick deportation.
