  42. 2001 Sunday: President George W.

We know that hydroxychloroquine is one of the best anti-malarial drugs in use on the African continent and in 2020, it’s interesting to note that a country such as Uganda that has long used this extremely low-cost drug the deaths in 2020 from COVID-19 are almost nonexistent. Elsewhere, in Burkina Faso, security guards launch a coup taking President Michel Kafando and other ranking government officials into custody.
  52. 2016 Friday: Democracy Now reports that Donald Trump continues to dis President Barack Hussein Obama by suggesting that the 44th president was not born in the United States. Folks, millions of Americans, and millions more around the planet do not believe Obama[v] was born in the U.S. so WTF? Meanwhile, following a campaign rally in North Carolina the previous day, Hillary Clinton minimizes her public appearances. What is wrong with this woman?
  53. 2017 Saturday: Tropical Storm Maria, which would batter the Caribbean as a powerful hurricane, formed in the Atlantic.

  55. 2019 Monday:  The New York Times publishes a story in which, it charges the U.S. military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as being the most expensive in the world that each prisoner costs the taxpayers $13 million annually.

  56. 2020 Wednesday: Warned ahead of time that his book about his time in the Trump administration contained classified information, former National Security Advisor John Bolton finds himself- along with his publisher and support staff- finds himself under investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice. We told you so, John! Meanwhile, America’s insurance companies announce that this year’s ongoing ‘peaceful protests,’ aka rioting, looting, arson, rape, and murder- will be the costliest in U.S. history, claims coming in between $1-2 billion. Thank you, Democrats, thank you, Marxist-Socialist thugs. Elsewhere, pot-smoking New York City Mayor Bill Di Blasio- struggling to remain lucid- announces that HE and his mayoral staff of at least 500 workers will go on furlough for two weeks, beginning in October. Dude, you do nothing anyway but thanks for allowing the city to hold onto your $250,000 annual salary.
  57. 2020 Wednesday A: In Austin, Texas, two construction cranes collide into one another killing no one but injuring at least 22 people on the ground. Illegal aliens at the controls?

Rains are heavy, storm surges strong, and flooding rampant. Elsewhere, NFL ratings are in a nosedive, the opening week’s ratings coming in with a 20-percent or more drop in viewership. Every game save the New Orleans Saints-Tampa Bay Buccaneers was below normal. Don’t expect it to get any better anytime soon, the league’s owners MUST- we repeat, MUST- terminate the contract of Commissioner Roger Goodell and send this virtue-signaling POS packing and then must regain control of the players and enforce the rules. You remember ratings were DOWN in 2016 and were it not for Donald Trump, they would have continued tanking. This is your second chance, NFL team owners, and if you blow it this time, we expect America’s favorite sport will be as popular as midget mud wrestling. Don’t blow it. Speaking of football, the BIG 10 says it is going to return to playing games. Congratulations!
  58. 2020 Wednesday B: Senate Minority Leader and knuckle-dragger Sen. Chuck Schumer wants the head of Health and Human Services boss Alex Azar’s head over some bogus charge concerning the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever Bat Flu. Chuck- STFU. Meanwhile, Real Clear Politics polling average shows “Pro-China Joe” Biden with a lead of 49-percent to 44.7-percent over Trump. Wow. You go, Joe, you go! Next, along the west coast, out-of-control wildfires continue to burn acres and take lives yet in our northern neighbor, Canada, the wildfire season is way, way down thanks to proper forest management. Democrats do NOT think we won’t remember who is responsible for all the ills come November or in November 2022, November 2024 and onward. YOU will pay. Finally, last night, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel had Chinese Virus Crisis whistleblower, Dr. Li-Meng Yan on his program and she told the host that Beijing knew the facts concerning the Wuhan Flu and that they INTENTIONALLY ALLOWED IT TO ESCAPE. It is interesting to note that famed bastion of free speech, Twitter (yeah, right), silenced the doctor’s account on September 15. My, my, me!
  59. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. Senate Homeland Security Committee has issued subpoenas to former CIA director John Brennan, former National Security advisor James Clapper, and former FBI director James “The Saint” Comey. Good. Bring them in and bust their balls on live TV! Elsewhere, radio talk show king, Rush Limbaugh, reports today on his program that new polling shows that in strife-torn cities and towns across the country, voters favor Donald Trump by a 2-1 margin in November. Ooops! Not good for the Democrats!

(The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers). Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 170,465 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 122,785 confirmed recoveries.
  61. 2020 Wednesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 771,288 confirmed cases, 14,648 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,951 confirmed cases, 100 confirmed deaths, and 3,885 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 84,320 confirmed cases, 2,107 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries. Shame on these flipping Democrats. Let’s take a look at one more state, Idaho: 35,984 confirmed number of cases, 420 confirmed deaths, but no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you, Governor Brad Little for acting like a Democrat and remaining mum on this figure.

  63. 2020 Wednesday G:  President Donald J. Trump- speaking from the White House today- said that he believes a vaccine will be available to combat the Wuhan Virus sometime in October. Earlier in the day, CDC Director Robert Redfield said that ‘masks are good’ and that ‘he was not as optimistic about a vaccine before late 2021.’  We shall see. However, Dr. Scott Atlas says 100 million doses should be available by the end of 2020. Elsewhere, “Pro-China Joe” Biden says his legal advisors have told him that he could probably issue a nationwide mask mandate via executive order. Joe: NOT enough prisons to hold everyone who will not obey the bull crap order. Better to make hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, available to ALL Americans.
  64. 2020 Wednesday H: Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Justice charges five Chi-Com hackers with attempting to hack into more than 100 sites including social media and government. Currently, law enforcement is tracking these scalawags down. Next, President Trump reverses himself from an earlier stance and says that limited briefings on U.S. elections security will be provided to key members of Congress. As everyone knows, the Chi-Coms, the Russkies, the Iranians, the Cubans, the North Koreans, the Venezuelans, everyone with an ax to grind against the U.S. is going to attempt changing U.S. election results in November as they always do. When Barack Hussein Obama was president, he said influencing an election one way or another was nearly impossible so why would things be any different now?

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 368,442 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  71. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 175 since Joe Biden’s earpiece appointed “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be ‘border czar’ and Day No. 82 since her sole visit to the region.  Next, here are stats from One America News for the border calamity.  We begin with the Cost for just this day of caring for the denizens of the Third World: $522,488,704.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, yet it’s going to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Next, here is the cost for this year of caring for this human fecal matter: $283,262,287,872.  Incredible, absolutely incredible.  Next, here is the estimate for the numbers of illegal alien trash that has swept across the U.S.-Mexico border this year: 2,903,211.  Wow.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE (LOW) estimate of border-jumpers living within the country now: 36,903,212.  Note- since 2009, we have placed the actual number back then at around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number is closer to 85-110 million.

  72. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– The Department of Homeland Security watchdog says that the ‘failure to screen illegal aliens along the border for COVID-19- and other diseases- is putting employees and American towns and cities at risk.’  Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says that the Biden-Harris regime are responsible for the 317-percent increase on illegal alien garbage pouring across the southern border.  Meanwhile, in Texas, 123 landowners along the border in Texas are allowing the state to erect border fencing on their properties.  Good for you.  In other border news, every day, 4,000 or more illegal aliens show up under a bridge between Texas and Mexico.  Currently, there are 8,000-10,000 illegals waiting beneath the bridge for the Border Patrol to show up and process them.  Fox News has been flying drones around the bridge to show the environmental disaster of all the urine, fecal matter, and disease swirling around beneath the bridge.  That is, until late today when the FAA banned Fox from flying any more flights in the area.
  73. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Following yesterday’s announcement by the Biden regime and leftist leaders in Australia- Prime Minister Scott Morrison- and in England- Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson regarding the three countries’ new alliance with which to give Australia nuclear-powered submarines, France became angry as they were not consulted seeing as how they are also involved in the Indo-Pacific Region.  Moron U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Bullshit” Blinken is now trying to pacify and coddle hurt Gallic feelings.  We thought the Biden regime was supposed to be ‘grownups in the room’ and that everything was ‘going to get back to normal’ with this Chi-Com stooge in the White House.  Finally, Barack Hussein Obama gives Justin Trudeau his endorsement in Canada’s upcoming election.  Loser.
  74. 2021 Thursday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News-(1) Pfizer $44.47 (2) AstraZeneca $56.60 (3) Johnson & Johnson $165.22 (4) BioNTech $372.65 (5) Moderna $440.65.

  78. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden News I– As various state governments, companies, and businesses continue fighting the unconstitutional COVID-19 vaccine mandates, Joe Biden is bringing in representatives from Disney and Microsoft so the old fogey can try to break their balls on the topic of vaccine mandates.  Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee says, “NO” to vaccine mandates.   Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, demands to see ‘evidence’ from Joe Biden’s inconclusive Chi-Com Virus origins report (seeing as how “Pro-China Joe” is trying to protect his paymasters in Beijing).  Next, following tweets saying ‘think for yourself’ from entertainer Nikki Minaj, the White House is dangling a phone call with her so they can twist her arm into urging her 22 million followers to rush out and get these bogus vaccines.   Don’t take it, Ms. Minaj.
  79. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– The blows continue hammering the fraudulent Joe Biden regime as first, 24 GOP state attorneys general threaten the regime with lawsuits over its mandate forcing Americans within their states to get inoculated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu while leaving illegal aliens to do whatever the heck they want.  Meanwhile, Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, told the Biden regime today, “See you in court” over the mandate.  As if that is not bad enough, Joe Biden laid out today a plan with which to tax the rich.  He claims the wealthy do not pay ‘their fair share’ when in fact, the top one percent pays 50-percent of all taxes while the bottom 50-percent and less pay little to no taxes other than sales taxes and SALT.  Most of them get their taxes back via tax refunds so this bull crap that the upper classes pay no taxes is little more than crap.  Meanwhile, in another blow to feeble Joe Biden, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, D-AZ, continues- with Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA- to hold out against this bogus $3.5 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Meanwhile, racist Virginia Governor Ralph “KKK” Northam says he ’supports Joe Biden’s tax hikes.’
  80. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. government is moving to block the agreed-upon Purdue Pharma settlement resulting from their hand in the ongoing opioid crisis.  Next, the Biden regime is praising the Fox News Channel for having nearly 90-percent of its employees vaccinated for the Kung Flu and for ordering weekly testing of ALL personnel.  What a load of crap, FNC has become a left-wing outlet.  How sad.  Finally, polls are showing that Joe Biden is facing an uphill battle to win a second term in 2024.  (Note- how many believe this man is going to make it to 2024?  What is with all these coughing fits of his?)
  81. 2021 Thursday P: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– We expect that Nancy Pelosi’s hirelings, i.e., FBI informants, paid Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs, and other sundry garbage are going to ignite another FALSE FLAG OPERATION on Saturday at the Justice for the January 6, 2021, political prisoners languishing in the D.C. gulags.  The TSA is already tightening security at regional airports in case Marxists begin causing trouble.  This sounds like yet another attempt from start to finish to tarnish Trump supporters by setting off yet another riot.  This will allow House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to put up Fort Pelosi once again and to keep it standing.  Meanwhile, Aaron Babbitt, widower of Ashli Babbitt, is urging there be NO violence at Saturdays “Justice for J6 Rally” at the U.S. Capitol.  Mr. Babbitt, NO Trump supporter, or defender of Americans’ civil rights will cause violence but all the stooges on the pay of the FBI and/or Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi most assuredly are going to cause violence.  Finally, in other fascinating news related to the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021, while Roger Stone was giving a radio interview, process servers showed up and served him live on air with papers related to the events of that day.  Wow.
  82. 2021 Thursday Q: Political News I– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, told Newsmax that IF what is being alleged about Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. (Asshole) Milley is true, the scumbag could have triggered a nuclear war between the United States and communist China.  Chef Lilah Paulikovich of the AICPENDBLOG.COM said on her Twitter page a few days ago that Gen. Milley should be court martialed, stripped of rank, led up the 13 steps to the gallows, have the black bag placed over his head, the noose tightened around his neck, and then have the trapdoor beneath his feet dropped open.  He should also be fed to the crows. 
  83. 2021 Thursday R: Political News II– Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that disgraced traitor General Mark A. (Asshole) Milley violated the chain of command via circumventing it in his communicating with the Chi-Coms.  Rep. Tim Burchett, R-TN 1st congressional district, says that ‘General Milley has clearly violated the Logan Act’ and should undergo prosecution for it.  Rep. Chris Stewart, R-UT 2nd congressional district, says that ‘it’s stunning how General Milley bypassed civilian leaders’ including the President and the then-Acting U.S. Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, the latter of whom said he ‘did NOT okay the chairman’s calls to his Chi-Com ‘opposite.’  Finally, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says the ‘only winner in Joe Biden’s tax increases is the communist Chinese.’
  84. 2021 Thursday S: Federal and State Court News– A federal court has blocked the expulsion of illegal alien families under a Trump-era order.   Another judge nixes the Department of Justice bid to quash the Lone Star State’s new ban on abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected.  Hearings are set for October 1.
  85. 2021 Thursday T: Sports News I– Tonight’s Thursday Night Football game features the New York Giants (0-1) and the Washington Football Team aka the Redskins.  The Redskins won 30-29 in the last couple of seconds.  Wow.
  86. 2022 Friday:  Observation of the Day– Watching the disaster befall Vladimir Putin in Ukraine must be akin to how our parents and grandparents viewed hapless Il Duce Benito Mussolini’s disasters in Albania, Greece, and in North Africa during World War II- a total Schmeckel to be sure, all schlong and NO balls.  His main ally- Xi Jinping of communist China must be holding his feverish, sweaty head in both hands much like Der Fuhrer Adolf Hitler did when he realized that he had to either ‘fish’ or ‘cut bait.’  In Hitler’s case, he could or would not ‘cut bait’ and thus rushed to the side of his beleaguered ally much to his eventual destruction.  Putin is NO Josef Stalin- perhaps he would like to be- but he’s demonstrated that he is a total flop at motivating his soldiers to fight an unpopular war on foreign soil which is the BIG DISTINCTION in this little melodrama.  The Russian people have no desire to fight a foreign war even in a country next door and thus as the Ukrainians continue kicking butts and taking numbers, Russian soldiers are throwing down their arms and raising their hands in surrender- “NO MÁS” as boxer Roberto “Manos de Piedra” Duran proclaimed when “Sugar Ray” Leonard was kicking his ass.  So many Russian soldiers are surrendering that Putin cannot eradicate all of their families so the only question remaining is WHEN will one of his adjutants stride up behind him and cap him?  If it has not happened by the time this post goes live, it should and hopefully will soon as this loser deserves NOTHING less.  Besides, where is the United Nations?  I know my colleagues have raised this question and so far, they are nowhere to be seen.  Time to boot the U.N. out of the U.S. now.  Let me know YOUR opinion- Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick was their most successful to date: “Dream Police” (September 21, 1979).  Although some critics panned the album, the LP was smoking hot with the underlying theme of jackbooted thugs penetrating the dreams of sleepers and monitoring them.  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), as well as two accompanying musicians: Jai Winding (pianos, organs, synthesizers, keyboards), and Steve Lukather (guitar on one song).  The tunes rock from the opening track to the very last notes.  The songs include (1) “Dream Police” (2) “Way of the World” (3) “The House is Rocking (with Domestic Problems),” the astounding (4) “Gonna Raise Hell” (5)  “I’ll Be With You Tonight,” the absolutely lovely (6) “Voices” to (7)  “Writing on the Wall” (8) “I Know What I Want” to (9) “Need Your Love.”  This is an album every fan of the band and of rock-and-roll must own.  We love it, you will love it, everyone will love it.  Seek it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of an interconnected group of bands including the Small Faces, Faces, and Rod Stewart beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This was a massive undertaking of rock bands and solo artists so we hope you will seek them out and consider adding the music to your album collection.

[ii] At some point when we return to presenting the music of American bands, we will promote that of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers as well as of Tom Petty himself.  We hope you will await word as to when we do.  We thank you.

[iii] We hope to promote the music of this famous British band, T-Rex, sometime within the next five years.

[iv] 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.

[v] 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.

[vi] We promoted the music of not only Fairport Convention beginning on Monday, October 04, 2021, through Sunday, February 27, 2022, but also that of Richard and Linda Thompson, Fotheringay, Sandy Denny, Simon Nichol, and almost anyone else connected to this legendary band.

  50. 1994 Friday: The U.S. agreed to accept about 20,000 Cuban immigrants a year. This was in return for Cuba’s promise to halt the flight of refugees. So instead of sending us immigrants, they send us criminals—and Obama opened the door to Cuba during his second term—son of a bitch!

  64. 2019 Monday: After South Africa undergoes a wave of xenophobic violence, Nigeria says it will act quickly to repatriate at least 600 of their citizens. Since Nelson Mandela died, everything has gone to hell in the once-stable country. Meanwhile, singer John Legend[v] and plump wife Chrissy Tiegen light up President Donald J. Trump who launched into them on Twitter for criticizing his prison reform efforts.  He called them “foulmouthed’ and ‘boring,’ two criticisms the two ‘beautiful people’ didn’t like.  The truth always hurts.
  65. 2020 Wednesday: Today, we learned that across the nation, Democrats dominate the requests for mail-in voting ballots. Folks, this is a time-honored variation of a psychological trick the Democrats ALWAYS use which is to depress their opponents into believing it’s a ‘done deal,’ that whomever the Republican president is, he is going to lose and to LOSE BIG. Don’t fall for it, let them do what they are doing.  Speaking of Democrats, we learned that the Harris-Biden 2020 Campaign raked in $355 million for the month of August: however, no reporting of the Trump-Pence tallies.  Elsewhere, Chicago reports that downtown Chi-Town renters are abandoning the city and who can blame them?  Lawlessness, mob violence, shootings, beatings, rapes, all are on the rise.  Thanks to this, occupancy rates have fallen by 5.2-percent over the past few weeks which means that Chicago- like New York City and other big BLUE STATE METROPOLISES- is going to die due to poor leadership and criminal mismanagement.   Next, Fox News reports that Obama-Biden, over their eight years in office lost 494,000 manufacturing jobs while over the past three years, Donald Trump gained them back.  Yet, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is on the campaign trails when he can wake up claiming HE is the one who will bring jobs back to America.   Speaking of President Trump, the Nobel Peace Prize group announced they were putting in Trump’s name for their 2021 Award thanks to trying to make peace with the North Koreans and for brokering a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, something, laughingly, that Vice President Biden claims ‘me and Barack set the foundation for;’ please, you two goobers did no such thing.  
  66. 2020 Wednesday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 27,605,570 confirmed cases, UP by 213,357 cases, 898,269 confirmed deaths, UP by 556 deaths, and 18,565,072 confirmed recoveries, UP by 187,663 recoveries. Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,434,718 confirmed cases, UP by 23,326 new cases, 193,119 confirmed deaths, UP by 668 new deaths, and 3,481,537 confirmed recoveries, UP by 30,719 new recoveries. (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt motherf**kers).
  67. 2020 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 747,603 confirmed cases, 13,899 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 10,025 confirmed cases, 88 confirmed deaths, and 3,063 confirmed recoveries. Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 81,133 confirmed cases, 2,046 confirmed deaths, but like California, the palooka-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Wyoming: 4,103 confirmed number of cases, 42 confirmed number of deaths, and 3,451 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Mark Gordon for providing us the proper figures.
  68. 2020 Wednesday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,940.47, UP 439.58 points (+1.60%). Next, the NASDAQ: 11,141.56, UP 293.87 points (+2.71%). Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,398.96, UP 67.12 points (+2.01%).  The price of GOLD is $1,955.10 per troy oz., +0.20 (+0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $27.21 per troy ounce, +0.127 (+0.47%).  The price of PLATINUM is $924.10 per troy oz, -0.80 (-0.09%) while the price of COPPER is $3.06 per pound, +0.0035 (+0.11%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,305.80 per troy oz, -37.40 (-1.60%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $37.83 per barrel, -0.22 (-0.58%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.83 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 21.37.
  69. 2020 Wednesday D: The Iranian garbage announce they are building a new, more secure site from which to enrich uranium at a much more rapid pace so they can build a bomb or two, the first one in 3.5-months. The Iranian Revolutionary Guard and their mullah bosses claim the Mossad destroyed their first site via fire and explosions earlier in the year. Folks, time to NUKE the living s**t out of these scumbags.  
  70. 2020 Wednesday E: Meanwhile, the Oscars announce complicated new diversity rules so we can all encircle the bonfire and sing ‘happy, happy, joy, you.’ Here they are: A QUOTA SYSTEM, how about that? To ensure more equitable representations, one of four lead actors must come from underrepresented groups such as black, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, Pacific Islander, or whatever else they can dream up along with 30-percent of all secondary actors must come from underrepresented groups including gays, the disabled, and the aforementioned groups as well as chicks.  In addition to that, the storylines/focus/themes must focus on underrepresented groups, and finally, at least two senior executives must come from underrepresented groups.  Wow, we already don’t watch movies now so from this point forward, we won’t be watching any flipping movies but if a producer wants their film to qualify for an Oscar- any Oscar- they will have to meet each of these requirements or qualify for NOTHING.   
  71. 2020 Wednesday F: The woman accusing President Donald J. Trump of sexual assault, aka ‘rape,’ back in the 1990s- E. Jean Carroll- says the U.S. Department of Justice’s decision to defend the president was “UNPRECEDENTED.” It is not unprecedented as many times the U.S. Department of Justice will insert itself into a legal case on behalf of an individual federal employee and since President Trump IS a federal employee, it is perfectly legal and common. Carroll claims that since the president recently disputed her accusations by saying (1) it never happened and (2) he doesn’t know her; it has harmed her credibility and her reputation.  Wah-wah-wah.  The Westfall Act gives federal employees absolute immunity from legal actions such as these and since Ms. Carroll is going to court in New York State, one can smell the malevolent odor of New York State Attorney General Letitia “Tish” James (as well as decrepit old battleax Hillary Rodham Clinton) somewhere in the mix.  We suspect that “Pro-China Joe” Biden will attempt to copy Trump’s tactics at a debate between he and Mrs. Clinton back in 2016 when the NY real estate developer and media mogul trotted out all of Bill Clinton’s rape accusers and sat them in the front row to throw the former first lady, senator, and secretary of state off her game- it worked but Ms. Carroll won’t sway Trump.  You can bet on it.  With the U.S. defending Trump, the case moves from New York State courts to the federal courts where she will end up the one in trouble.  Count on that, too.
  72. 2020 Wednesday G: Excerpts from Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, “Rage,” have clips of President Trump on tape downplaying COVID-19’s danger. President Trump has done more than any other country around the globe to defeat this Chi-Com bat flu, yellow fever virus running amok and when questioned on his statements, the commander-in-chief says he did ‘not want to cause a panic.’ Sounds about right.  What matters here is that communist China LIED to the world and must pay a price for their crimes against humanity.  Elsewhere, on the campaign trail, Joe’s anti-senility meds are working fairly well today, and he uses the admissions of Trump on tape to blast him and to tell the world all the amazing things he will do as president.  God help us!
  73. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 223,995,675 confirmed cases, +737,757, 4,619,835 confirmed deaths, +12,049 and 200,583,433 confirmed recoveries, +782,535.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 356,119 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 47,959 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  75. 2021 Thursday 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: 4,463,803 confirmed cases, 66,934 confirmed deaths, and 2,340,618 confirmed recoveries.

Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 69,573 confirmed cases, 633 confirmed deaths, and 68,940 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 596,618 confirmed cases, 6,935 confirmed deaths, and 255,708 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., S. Federal Prisons: they have 55,909 confirmed cases, 257 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  76. 2021 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,145,932 confirmed cases, 7,313 confirmed deaths, and 1,059,332 confirmed recoveries (same numbers). Let us look at one other portion of the world- Greenland, 207th country on the list: 377 cases of the virus, N/A confirmed deaths and 309 confirmed recoveries. [ix]

[x]   The price of PALLADIUM is $2,197.70 per troy oz, +18.77 (+0.86%). [xi] The price of RHODIUM is $16,500.00 per troy oz., -500.00 (-2.9994%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $765,000.00 per CNY/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,835.50 per USD/T, +55.15 (+2.02%).  [xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Central African CFA Franc, one greenback equals 554.81 and in Chilean Peso, a buck equal 792.90 and in Chinese Yuan Offshore, one dollar equals 6.45 of theirs.[xiii]        
  78. 2021 Thursday E: S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $3.009 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.883 in Washington state. [xiv] Let us look at one other location- Alabama: $2.840. 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- Spain: $6.312 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,741,965,625,065 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is All others with $215 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  79. 2021 Thursday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘it’s no surprise’ that four former Gitmo detainees are now running the show in Afghanistan. Next, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th congressional district, says that ‘Congress has neglected any talk of the failed Afghan evacuation.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mark Green, R-TN 7th congressional district, says recently imported Afghan refugees dumped in Virginia are able to have free-run of the state.  Elsewhere, Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that the ‘Taliban and other enemies of the U.S. do not fear us.’  Immigration guru and former Trump confidante Stephen Miller told Newsmax today that the ‘goal of the Biden regime is to settle as many refugees around the country as it possibly can.’
  80. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 169 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show and Day No. 76 since her sole visit to the border to do her job. Anyhow, here are the numbers as presented by One America News for the utter disaster befalling the nation. First, here are the numbers for the cost as of this day for caring for all this riffraff: $517,821,024.  Next, here is the cost for just this year of caring for the castoff products of the Third World: $275,586,383,872.  Next, here are the numbers for illegal aliens who have swarmed into the United States this year: 2,824,539.  Finally, here are the numbers of illegals estimated to be living in the country: 36,824,540.  However, we know the number is double that, if not higher.  This must stop. (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden has been totally absent during the southern border crisis.’
  81. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Saudi Arabian Embassy in Washington, D.C. says that it ‘welcomes’ the upcoming disclosure of its role in the September 11, 2001, terror attacks and notes that it had NO role in them whatsoever. We shall see. Next, Yair Netanyahu- Benjamin Netanyahu’s son- says Israel is ‘spiraling out of control without his dad in office.’  Meanwhile, in other truly crazy news, New South Wales, Australia, has people on lockdown and now is putting a cap on the amount of alcohol one citizen can have delivered to their home or apartment per day: six beers or one bottle of wine.  What the hell is going on in that totally insane country?  This is frigging loony tunes, folks.  Finally, Chi-Com warplanes are penetrating Taiwanese airspace every day.  The war is coming…
  82. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– New Jersey police and firefighters are protesting in the streets against COVID-19 vaccine mandates being imposed upon them. Fight back, people, fight back. Meanwhile, liberal hypocrisy is on full display today: where once the American Civil Liberties Union stood against government-opposed mandates- especially medical ones- the ACLU now stands firmly behind all those seeking to impose harsh COVID-19 restrictions and vaccine mandates on the American people.  Speaking of the Chi-Vi, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says there are too many new cases of the ‘VID to stop calling it a pandemic.’  “Phony Tony,” we hate to say this but it’s now endemic, something with which, we will just have to live- thanks to the Chi-Coms.   Meanwhile, Rep. Andy Harris, R-MD 1st congressional district, says there’s ‘no reason WHY someone who has had COVID-19 should have to get the vaccines.’
  83. 2021 Thursday J: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.03 (2) AstraZeneca $56.29 (3) Johnson & Johnson $168.07 (4) BioNTech $351.38 (5) Moderna $455.92. As you can see, the money-go-round is alive and well. Moderna is developing a 1-dose booster shot for the Chi-Vi and the flu, combined together in a double-whammy of God knows what to the human body.  Experts in the medical industry say that it takes two years at least to put a vaccine through clinical trials and we have not done that yet.  Anyone takes this crap, God help them.  Next, Joe Biden was bragging on the U.S. donating 140 million doses overseas with another 500 million slated to go to poor, highly deserving countries around the world.  Once again, here is the money-go-round in action.  Politicians and Deep State apparatchiks are highly invested in these companies and thus the federal government BUYS the vaccines, ships them elsewhere, and the aforementioned politicians and apparatchiks receive dividends as well as campaign funding and other freebies from these companies.  This is EVIL.
  84. 2021 Thursday K: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.66 (2) General Dynamics: $203.81 (3) Boeing: $213.94 (4) Lockheed Martin: $348.93 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $356.78.
  85. 2021 Thursday L: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News– (1) Ansell Ltd.: $36.12 (2) DuPont: $70.30 (3) Honeywell: $222.93 (4) 3M: $185.75 (5) Teijen: $1659.00. WHY do you think that losers such as Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and the CDC director, Dr. Rochelle Walensky continue pushing the wearing of masks? Like the vaccines, it’s the classic money-go-round as outlined above.  (Note- soon, we will begin doing the fake meat company stocks as the war on meat is on the way as of today…)
  86. 2021 Thursday M: President Donald J. Trump News– Gold Star mother Shana Chappell invited President Donald J. Trump to her U.S. Marine son Kareen Nikoui who was killed in the bomb blast at the Hamid Karzai International Airport- along with 12 other U.S. servicemembers- last month.
  87. 2021 Thursday N: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden released his oppressive ‘plan’ to get ‘COVID-19 under control.’ He is going to increase the pressure to get 80 million Americans who remain unconvinced or who simply won’t get the vaccine to undergo vaccination whether they want to or not. He is going to demand mask mandates and will counter any governor’s plan to either overlook demanding vaccinated employees or who blows off mask mandates (please see our new section on PPE manufacturers’ stock prices to understand the money-go-round on all this bull crap).  He wants to get schools open, will require ALL companies with 100 or more employees to force ALL employees to undergo vaccination even as he provides the U.S. Postal Service a carve out- NO vaccinations for them!  Say, what the f**k?  (The Republican National Committee is suing the Biden regime over its new COVID-19 ‘mandates’).
  88. 2021 Thursday O: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden was talking crap the other day about the U.S. Stock Market and the effect he was having on it. Well, stocks are tanking as are his approval numbers. Joe Biden now is a few points shy of what President Jimmy Carter’s were towards the end of his first and only term in office.  Joe Biden has collapsed below 40-percent approval which is not good for a usurper who has only been in office eight months.
  89. 2021 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– Amid growing resistance from the GOP, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury Janet Yellen urges Congress to raise the debt ceiling before the government implodes. Next, the Biden regime is planning on hitting ALL Americans with massive tax increases such as charging drivers a tax of $0.08 per mile (actual figure will vary depending on types of vehicles). As for death taxes, unsold assets will be subject to tax as high as 43.3-percent for the wealthiest households on top of a 40-percent estate tax for millionaires.  Capital gains taxes will increase from 21-percent to 28-percent with a top marginal rate of 39.6-percent.  This is ONLY the beginning.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime had to pull the nomination of one of the worst POS yet to come out of this fraudulent regime, David Chipman nominated to head the Bureau of Alcohol and Tobacco.  What difference does it make?  The regime will send some other nut up to Capitol Hill to try to get confirmed.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– Joe Biden lays out a plan to lower drug costs for associated with Medicare. (Note- President Donald J. Trump already did this, you loser). Next, the Biden regime is slamming the meat industry for ‘pandemic pricing.’  Joe, there were no workers, no livestock feed deliveries, WTF is wrong with you?  Why the f**k don’t you just shut the hell up?  What a loser.  Next, the U.S. Department of Justice is suing Texas over its new fetal heartbeat abortion ban law. 
  91. 2021 Thursday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– The FBI released new info on the ‘Capitol Hill pipe bomber.’ We think they have another Cesar Sayoc in the works. IF you don’t know who Mr. Sayoc is, look him up- that was bullshit, too.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the nonagenarian destroying the country, is putting Fort Pelosi back up ahead of the upcoming protest on Capitol Hill grounds in support of the political prisoners still in the slammer in D.C.  (We suspect that this protest is going to be infiltrated by Antifa and BLM agents who will then make this event even more explosive than the one on January 06, 2021.  See how it all works?  It’s not good).
  92. 2021 Thursday S: Political News I– Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, must stand up and do something with (losers) Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. Amen, boot those two scumbags out of the Republican conference. NOW.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he is asking SCOTUS to declare proxy voting in the House unconstitutional.
  93. 2021 Thursday T: Political News II– Rep. Clay Higgins, R-LA 3rd congressional district, said today that the U.S. is ‘greatly weakened’ since Joe Biden cheated his way into the White House. Next, Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci should be charged with lying before Congress which he did.  Lock him up.  Meanwhile, conservative icon Todd Starnes said that Joe Biden should ‘show some respect for both the U.S. military and the U.S. Constitution.’  Good luck with that, Mr. Starnes.
  94. 2021 Thursday U: Business News– Amazon.com announces it’s going to ‘invest $1.2 billion over the next four years to put their frontline employees through college or to get their high school diplomas. (Note- Eric Bolling at Newsmax said, ‘how about paying some taxes, Amazon?’ Everyone wants the answer to that pressing question).
  95. 2021 Thursday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Washington, D.C. Roman Catholic Archbishop Wilton Gregory says that ‘Joe Biden is NOT demonstrating Catholic faith.’ We concur. It is fake Catholics such as these who are going to be visiting Hell.  They have forgotten the teachings of the Holy Catholic Church.
  96. 2021 Thursday W: Social Media News– Many were shocked when a racist bitch wearing a gorilla mask of all-things threw an egg at gubernatorial candidate Larry Elder, R-CA, and then tried to fight with his security. Typical liberal BS but the Twitter verse is up in arms over this incident. About flipping time, folks.
  97. 2021 Thursday X: California State News– Democrats are beginning to sob tears over the impending doom for Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom. We are praying that POS is BLOWN OUT. (Hey, Gavin- where’s those relief checks you were going to send us?).  In fact, slobbering Joe Biden is coming to California to campaign for “Nazi” Newsom this upcoming Monday. 
  98. 2021 Thursday Y: Sports News I– The opening game of the 2021-2022 NFL Season begins with the Dallas Cowboys playing the world champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In a nail-biter of a game, the Bucs pulled it out in the final couple of seconds to win by a final score of 31-29. What a game.  The Cowboys played their hearts out but if you give Tom Brady a couple of seconds, that son-of-a-gun will pull it out.
  99. 2021 Thursday Z: For us, this is the midpoint of the week. Let us see what Beijing Biden is up to today… NFL 2021-22 Season opens tonight with the Dallas Cowboys visiting Superbowl champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Bucs, obviously…
  100. 2022 Friday: Friends, I know everyone is celebrating the ‘lowered gasoline prices’ for which, frigging Joe Biden gets all the ‘credit’ but it’s a phony lowering of prices.  As everyone should know, he has tapped our Strategic Oil Preserve which President Donald J. Trump worked so diligently to fill with much of it flowing across the Pacific Ocean so we can pay the interest on our debt.  The real stunner will be the day after Election Day when oil prices will skyrocket back up because the Dems will have two years to ride out the tidal wave of anger until the 2024 Election Cycle.  I think prices will rise higher than what they were before the artificial lowering because the prices will reflect the true cost of gasoline as things now stand.  Democrats do not want people using gasoline-powered cars and so once unrestrained by what voters think, the prices will rise and will continue to rise thus worsening our economic circumstances.  This November, we must vote out every frigging Democrat no matter if they seem ‘reasonable’ because none of them are.  We must neuter the Biden regime and force them to go even more draconian in their retributions against us so everyone can see that Joe f**king Biden is little more than a senile tool of Barack Hussein Obama, a fraudulent president if ever one existed.  Let me know what you think.  Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[i] We promoted the music of Iron Butterfly beginning on Saturday, 27-July-2013 through Thursday, 08-August-2013.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your ever-growing collection of rock music.  Nothing one finds today compares with the classic rock of old.  Throw out your Maroon 5 albums and go with the crème de la crème of the 1960s and 1970s.

[ii] When we promoted the music of the Byrds and then Buffalo Springfield, had we been more perceptive at the time as to how we would combined integrated musical groups and performers, we should have done the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young, as well as each artist’s solo catalog as well as that of the various members of the Byrds.  We look forward to correcting that mistake at some point in the next 3-5 years so please remain alert for that day.  You will be glad you did.

[iii] 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.

[iv] Good riddance to this Chi-Com POS.  He was a murderous thug and deserves to burn in Hell.

[v] We don’t ever plan on doing the music of this little wimp. Maybe in 80-100 years?

243. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2022

As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November. I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters. When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM! INSURRECTIONISTS! REVOLUTIONARIES! WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”

  65. 2020 Monday:  Failing and flailing Democratic Party presidential nominee, “Pro-China Joe” Biden has finally roused himself from the basement and is now out pounding the pavement.  He blames President Donald J. Trump for the left-wing violence destroying America’s largest Democrat-controlled cities.  What a laugh.  Meanwhile, Steve Bannon, President Donald J. Trump’s former political advisor had his first day in court with three of his fellow sycophants and pled ‘not guilty’ to charges the quartet defrauded donors into providing money to help build the wall along our border with Mexico.  Elsewhere, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the case against former Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn cannot be dropped even though the U.S. Justice Department dropped the charges.  This was a nod to the whack-a-doodle judge on the case, Emmet Sullivan.

  67. 2020 Monday B: COVID-19 Statistics- here are the stats for the Aloha State: 8,339 confirmed cases, 63 confirmed deaths, and 2,520 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 74,320 confirmed cases, 1,905 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  NOTE: COVID-19 is now the third leading cause of death in the United States.  The estimated hit to U.S. tourism and travel industries as of today rests at $51.5 billion.  The Chi-Coms have much to make restitution.   
  68. 2020 Monday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 28,430.05, DOWN 223.82 points (-0.78%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 11,775.46, UP 79.82 points (+0.68%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,500.31, DOWN 7.70 points (-0.22%).  Currently, GOLD is at $1,973.90 per troy oz., DOWN -4.70 (-0.24%), SILVER is at $28.24 per troy oz., DOWN -0.202 (-0.71%), PLATINUM $937.90 per troy oz.

  69. 2020 Monday D: Today, history occurred as El Al Flight 971 lifted off from Jerusalem and three-and-a-half hours later touched down in the United Arab Emirates, the first flight ever to do so.  The aircraft carried loads of dignitaries and the underside of the jetliner bristled with anti-missile defenses.  This is a momentous day for the entire world although the Palestinians continue running amok in the Gaza Strip, trying to initiate yet another war with the world’s sole Jewish state.  Shame on them.
  70. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 218,540,994 confirmed cases, +674,190, 4,533,609 confirmed deaths, +10,669 and 195,365,126 confirmed recoveries, +652,872.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 40,114,099 confirmed cases, UP 168,668 from yesterday’s reporting, 657,910 confirmed deaths, UP 1,533, [xii] and 31,020,612 confirmed recoveries, UP 80,403.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [xiii]   
  71. 2021 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 339,222 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient 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 rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 64,886 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  72. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,366,577 confirmed cases, 65,885 confirmed deaths, and 2,284,613 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,295,993 confirmed cases, 44,561 confirmed deaths, and 2,342,929 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 63,502 confirmed cases, 589 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 565,013 confirmed cases, 6,643 confirmed deaths, and 246,247 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., District of Columbia: they have 55,431 confirmed cases, 1,160 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries. [xiv]   That’s Mayor Muriel “Bow-wow” Bowser for you- nothing more than a political hack.
  73. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,066,352 confirmed cases, 7,043 confirmed deaths, and 975,767 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Antigua and Barbuda, 197th country on the list: 1,715 cases of the virus, 34 confirmed deaths and 1,348 confirmed recoveries. [xv]     
  74. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,360.73, DOWN 39.11 points (-0.11%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,259.24, DOWN 6.66 points (-0.044%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,522.68, DOWN 6.11 points (-0.13%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $69.08 per barrel, +0.57 (+0.83%).  The price of GOLD is $1,816.10 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $23.85 per troy ounce, -0.11 (-0.46%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,008.00 per troy oz, -6.20 (-0.61%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, -0.04 -0.99%).

[xix]        
  75. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.398 per gallon, $2.983 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.898 in Washington state. [xx]    Let us look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.994.  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- Seychelles: $5.950 per U.S. Gallon.[xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,707,520,165,015 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxii]  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 Netherlands, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Israel with $49 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  76. 2021 Tuesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Following on the heels of the last flight of Americans out of Hamid Karzai International Airport today, the Taliban moved in quickly upon our heels dressed in U.S. camo and using U.S. weapons.  We have left behind perhaps 15,000-20,000 Americans while the bogus regime inhabiting the White House claims the numbers are closer to 100 to 200.  Bulls**t.  Pentagon spokesperson Admiral John Kirby says the U.S. ‘will use leverage to bring trapped Americans home.’  We also left behind all of our military dogs to suffer horrendous fates at the hands of the barbarous Mohammedans who also are going to door to door executing anyone they deem to be enemies or threats to their criminal regime.   What is becoming clearer by the moment is that even though the war is ‘now over,’ Joe Biden’s Afghan crisis is only just beginning.  Take for example, new video showing the Taliban escorting- openly- Osama bin Laden’s former security chief, Dr. Amin al-Haq, an al-Qaida thug.  And the Biden regime says there is NO al-Qaida in the Afghan boonies.  Finally, new reports suggest that during a phone call in June, neither slobbering Joe Biden or Afghan President Ashraf Ghani anticipated the sudden collapse of the country.
  77. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Friends, with the usurper regime in the White House, everything is going to hell.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 160 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the debacle on the southern border and Day No. 67 since her sole visit to th southern border.  What a loser.  Ah, well, the Cost this Day of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens is $521,296,416.  Next, the cost of caring for this tsunami of Third World flesh is $265,726,853,120.  As for the numbers of illegal alien vermin who have crossed the southern border this year, here is the appalling figure for the numbers who managed to cross into the United States: 2,723,487.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens sucking away at the American taxpayers’ teat: 36,723,488.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  Note- since the inception of this blog back in 2009, we believed the numbers of illegal alien vermin in the U.S. to have been between 35-50 million whereas now- 12 years later- we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport all of them.  NOW.
  78. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Ireland announces that it will be dropping almost all COVID-19 restrictions in their country by October all the while Australia continues tightening the screws on its citizens.  The military goes door to door to check on whether its citizens are cowering behind their doors as well as checks on citizens’ individual QR codes to make sure they are following the government’s dictates.  WTF?  In another country seemingly freer than Australia, Vladimir Putin is approving special payments to military and law enforcement personnel ahead of upcoming elections (just like U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is doing for federal employees in America).
  79. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– In other foreign and overseas news, the People’s Republic of China has restricted young people under the age of 18 no more than 3 hours per week playing video games.  Beijing also shut down the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Chengdu, probably because it is pushing the LGBTQIA+ agenda which should get any organization closed down.
  80. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– In an effort to destroy “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis, R-FL, a ‘report’ suggests that death rates in the Sunshine State due to COVID-19 somehow are artificially low.  Elsewhere, another report says that Alaska and Utah have low COVID-19-related deaths.   Meanwhile, an Axios/Ipsos poll says that ‘it appears vaccine hesitancy is waning’ around the nation.  Uh, okay.  NO, no it’s not.
  81. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that he is ‘confident a judge will rule in favor of his ban on the required wearing of masks in Florida’s school systems.  Elsewhere, Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, has been accused of violating New Mexico’s mask mandate on a recent visit to the Cactus State.  Liberal hypocrisy?  No, it couldn’t be.  Meanwhile, the Manhattan D.A. charges 15 in a fake COVID-19 vaccine passport scheme.
  82. 2021 Tuesday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.07 (2) AstraZeneca $58.28 (3) Johnson & Johnson $173.13 (4) BioNTech $329.19 (5) Moderna $376.69.  Follow the money.  Politicians and the Deep State are invested BIG TIME in vaccine manufacturers.
  83. 2021 Tuesday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $84.76 (2) General Dynamics: $200.31 (3) Boeing: $219.50 (4) Lockheed Martin: $359.80 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $367.70.  Same as above, the Deep State and politicos are invested heavily in the dogs of war.
  84. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden News I– Early this morning, we were promised that faux president Joe Biden would give a statement on the debacle in Afghanistan to the American people.  When he did finally show up, he was agitated and angrier than ever.  The White House must have gotten some of son Hunter’s crack and had old Joe smoke a few bowls before he walked glassy eyed to the microphones and lit into the American people.  (Note- Joe, STFU about your son, Beau Biden, he did NOT die in combat, he was not shot, he was not blown up, and he was not maimed; no, he died from brain cancer from being around too many burn-pits in-country.  You cannot relate with anyone who has lost a loved one in combat.  Enough!).  The old fool also praised the success of the ‘airlift’ and the ‘end of the forever war.’  Speaking of this man’s failure, the Flag Officers 4 America- more than 87-plus former U.S. military officers- sent a letter to “Taliban Joe” Biden demanding the resignations of U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and political hack Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark A. Milley over failing to advise Joe Biden of the disastrous consequences resulting from his baffling pull-out from Afghanistan.  (Note- Gen. Milley, being the POS that you are and an uneducated one, IF you ever wish someone to explain to you the truth behind the three-fifths clause, we would love to sit down and explain it to your stupid ass.  Also, you must pay heed as to what happens to ‘political generals,’ i.e., General Alfred Jodl and Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel at the end of World War II).  
  85. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News II– The father of a U.S. Marine killed in last Thursday’s terror attack at HKIA- Mark Schmitz- said that when he met Joe Biden at Dover when the bodies of his son and 12 others arrived home on U.S. soil, Mr. Biden ‘bristled’ when told to learn the stories of the dead.  Joe went on about son, Beau, and said little to nothing to comfort the grieving families and instead looked at his watch to see when he could return to the White House basement to watch reruns of “Dragnet” and “Murder She Wrote.”   Joe also claims he is committed to getting ‘the last 100-200 Americans out of Afghanistan.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Fox News had the balls to report today that during a press conference with FEMA regarding Hurricane Ida relief, when he called forward one of his senior advisers, former Rep. Cedric Richmond, the racist faux president referred to him as “BOY.”  Since Mr. Richmond happens to be black, one would think that the besotted old fool who claims to be president would have ignited a firestorm but oh, no, apparently not.  Here is what the senile codger said: “I’m here with my senior adviser and BOY who knows Louisiana very, very well, and New Orleans, Cedric Richmond.” [xxiii]
  87. : Joe Biden Regime News I– Ahead of a White House visit, the U.S. commits to $60 million in foreign aid to the Ukraine.  Next, U.S. State Department staffers are assailing Secretary Anthony Blinken over the need to terminate one of their own- Fritz Berggren who runs a website, bloodandfaith.com- where he blasts Jews, homos and trannys, and other left-wing riffraff.  Hey, staffers: stop sniveling.  You guys get away with all sorts of stuff so shut the hell up.  Elsewhere, Health and Human Services- HHS- says it’s going to open a division committed to combatting ‘climate change.’  Spare us the crap.
  88. 2021 Tuesday R: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– In other political news, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says- regarding the bogus January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots panel in the U.S. House of Representatives that is demanding BIG TECH to hand over all data related to the GOP and others who were there on that day- that ‘this is America and the people will remember’ if BIG TECH complies with the Democratic-Socialists’ requests. 
  89. 2021 Tuesday S: Political News I– Eric Trump told Newsmax today that the nation ‘demands a refund for the debacle in Afghanistan.’  We left billions of dollars in equipment there as well as billions of dollars more for the criminal regime currently inhabiting the country.   Next, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says that Afghanistan is a ‘jaw-dropping, abysmal failure.’  Amen.  Moving on, Rep. Ronny Jackson, R-TX 13th CD, says that ‘Americans are now fending for themselves’ in the so-called ‘graveyard of empires.’  Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd CD, puts most of the blame for the Afghan debacle atop the shoulders of ‘Taliban Joe’ Biden, National Security Adviser Jake “Wet Behind the Ears” Sullivan, and the increasingly pathetic, U.S. Secretary of State Anthony “Sell-Out” Blinken.  Finally, Rep. Brian Mast, R-FL 18th CD, says that ‘whenever the Biden regime sends Anthony Blinken to the microphone banks, it’s to LIE to the American people.’  Amen, Rep., amen.  Rep. Mast also has said that the ‘White House has doubled down on stupid with the Taliban.’  Finally, Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd CD, says the “U.S. is going to fund terrorism against itself.”
  90. 2021 Tuesday T: Political News II– Anger continues to grow across the United States at CRT in the schools- what WE call truthfully ‘Criminal Race Theory’ and what the leftist scumbags label ‘Critical Race Theory.’  This crap is as evil as is Marxism and Nazism and must be destroyed.  Anyone promoting this crap must be stripped of their job and sent into the hinterlands to become reeducated.
  91. 2021 Tuesday U: Economic News– Thanks to the COVID-19 crisis, U.S. home prices during the month of June soared to their highest point in years.  (Note- the reason for higher prices is the scarcity thanks to big banks and Chinese companies snapping up homes in mass.  Not good.
  92. 2021 Tuesday V: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– The murderer of Iowa college student Mollie Tibbetts- Cristhian Bahena Rivera- received a sentence of life in prison today as well as having to pay restitution for his barbaric crime.  Execute him.  Another condemned murderer set to die on September 8, 2021, via lethal injection in Texas- 37-year-old John Henry Ramirez- is suing to have the right to have his pastor lay hands on him as he undergoes execution.
  93. 2021 Tuesday W: Social Media News– Another mother who lost her son at HKIA last week saw Instagram shutter account over emotional posts she shared following the death of her child.  When blasted for doing it, Instagram said ‘they made a mistake and had NO clue as to how such an outrageous incident occurred.’  Sure, uh-huh.  F— you.
  94. 2021 Tuesday X: Weather News I– Following Hurricane Ida slamming the gulf coast, thousands in Louisiana are facing weeks- if not months- of NO electricity.  We recall that when Donald J. Trump was in the White House, he had everything ready and waiting to rush in and begin the process of restoring power as soon as the storms passed.  What the hell is up with the Biden regime?
  95. 2021 Tuesday Y: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1690 what with a $306 million jackpot on the line: 08, 14, 31, 58, 68, and Mega 15.  Out of 105,850 winning tickets, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,621.
  96. 2022 Wednesday: As a Democrat, I understand the strategy we are using to win in November.  I think the raid on Mar-a-Lago is to stir up the angst in Trump supporters.  When the DOJ charges him in September- remember- you heard it here first, we are hoping that violent mobs of Trumpers will turn out in the streets, run amok, commit all manner of mayhem and violence to which we can then say, “LOOK AT THEM!  INSURRECTIONISTS!  REVOLUTIONARIES!  WE MUST CRUSH THEM!”  It will allow the Biden White House to DECLARE MARTIAL LAW, LOCK DOWN THE ELECTION CYCLE, KEEP EVERYONE IN THEIR HOMES, AND FORCE THEM TO USE MAIL-IN BALLOTS which, we the Democratic Party OWN.  If everyone has to vote by mail, we are going to pull our irons out of the fire and save the election cycle.  IF we can’t get Trump voters to run amok, we will send our Antifa and BLM goons out into the streets, give them CSA and Nazi flags and have them run amok.  It’s a cinch. Trump will be indicted but will NEVER go to trial until October 2024 and we will win that election cycle, too.  Man, oh, man, are we smart.  This is the plan, it’s going to work, and Dems are going to WIN and WIN BIG.  Especially when our media spews the myth that the RED WAVE is dying, and the BLUE WAVE is going to crush EVERYONE.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0938 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Rancho Santa Margarita.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclee, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from the Beach Boys is one to be expected: “The Beach Boys with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra” (June 08, 2018).  There are 17 tunes here featuring Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson along with Mike Love, Bruce Johnston, Al Jardine, and David Marks.  Most every band that has survived- or whose record catalog has survived- has had remix albums with orchestras so why would the Beach Boys be any different?  While some criticize the album, others praise it which is what we do being the completists that we are.  Besides- if you’ve purchased everything else, why would you spurn this effort?  It does not cost that much so pick it up much like you would (or did) “Metamorphosis” or “Jamming with Edward” by the Rolling Stones.  We think you will enjoy but if not, perhaps your aging mother or father will.  After all, they are most likely Beach Boys fans.

[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates.  We thank you.

[ii] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[iii] Shavers won the vacant Nevada state heavyweight title on September 28, 1971.  However, Earnie lost his two big-time title fights, the first to Muhammad Ali on September 29, 1977, via a 15-round unanimous decision.  He fought to win the WBA, WBC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight titles.  The second shot was against Larry Holmes, aka the Easton Assassin, on September 28, 1979.  Holmes held the WBC heavyweight title of the world.  Holmes beat Shavers via a TKO at the 2:00 minute mark of Round 11 in a scheduled 15-round heavyweight bout.  There would be no future shots at any of the belts.

[iv] We hope to begin promoting the music of Them and of Van Morrison at some point in the near future.  Please remain alert for the day when we do.

[v] We shared the music of the Flamin’ Groovies beginning on Thursday, 25-November-2010 through Sunday, 02-January-2011.  We hope you will check them out and enjoy.

[vi] We presented the music of the Flying Burrito Brothers beginning Sunday, 23-February-2014 and concluded our presentation on Thursday, 06-March-2014.

[vii] We hope to offer the music of Firefall sometime in 2026.  Please stay tuned.

[viii] We most definitely should have done Whitesnake back during the time we did the music of Deep Purple, Elf, Rainbow, Ian Gillan, Ian Gillan Band, Richie Blackmore, and the rest of that offering but we failed to do so.  However, when we get around to doing Poison, Mȍtley Crüe, Bon Jovi, and other of the HAIR bands sometime within the next 10 years.  As for the first grouping of bands, 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.  The only problem, we did the lineup at the Google Blogger blog we had for 11 years and that cocksucker Sundar Pichai, a POS Pakistani jihadist shut us down.  He will get his when conservatism reclaims the nation in the greatest revival since the post-Civil War era.

[ix] We expect to present the music of the Jackson Five and Michael Jackson sometime in 2025-2026 so please stay tuned for future developments. 

[x] We began promoting the music of the Move- and of Electric Light Orchestra, Wizzard, Roy Wood, and Jeff Lynne- beginning on Wednesday, August 12, 2020.

[xi] More and more Americans now believe that President Barack Hussein Obama was the first phony president as it has become clearer that he was NOT born in the United States but in Kenya.  This would explain the actions of the Democrats back in 2009 when they began to go down the totalitarian roadway.  Look at them now.

  68. 2020 Thursday B: Various sports leagues are boycotting their schedules/playoff schedules as first the Milwaukee Bucks yesterday followed by other NBA teams, MLB teams, and today, NHL teams over the shooting of Jason Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Look, we get it but the more you politicize your sports the less likely we are to continue watching your games which means the less money you will be able to earn in the future.  Speak out on YOUR own but when leagues begin going down this road, it spells trouble for your longevity.  Sorry.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast Guard offloads 30,000 pounds of narcotics in Miami worth about $228 million, intercepted and confiscated on the high seas.

[viii]

[xii]        
  77. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.394 per gallon, $2.950 in Florida, $4.071 in Hawaii, and $3.896 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let us look at one other location- Texas: $2.791.  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- Czech Republic: $5.855 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,691,729,665,014 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xv]  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 Norway, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Thailand with $80 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  78. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– Even though victims of the blast claim otherwise, the Pentagon now says that there was but one blast at the Kabul airport yesterday that claimed the lives of 12 U.S. Marines and one Navy corpsman along with at least 85 Afghan citizens.  (The Pentagon claims to have evacuated 12,500 in the last day at HKIA but have no clue as to whom they evacuated).  The U.S. is bracing for more terrorist attacks by ISIS-K in Kabul.  Now that the Taliban are back to running the show, Iran is resuming shipments of oil to the country.  Rep. Don Bacon, R-NE 2nd congressional district, said of yesterday’s twin blasts at HKIA that it’s the ‘worst national security debacle.’  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says he wants an immediate House vote on delaying the withdrawal from Afghanistan.  Not sure we agree but we must get everyone out of that country.  Rep. Dan Bishop, R-NC 9th congressional district, says that Congress ‘should be in session during the Afghan crisis.’  (Good luck with that).
  79. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– A new U.S. intelligence report suggests that the Chi-Com leadership had NO clue as to what was going on at the Wuhan Institute of Virology was doing.  Bulls**t.
  80. 2021 Friday H: Health and Medical Alerts– In Japan, a batch of Moderna Chi-Vi vaccine shipments is discovered to be tainted with metal particles.  Meanwhile, as cases of the Delta variant continue to skyrocket, Joe Biden is hemorrhaging support among independent voters as he is among every other group.  A new poll says that most Americans believe the economy is worsening due to skyrocketing COVID-19 numbers.  The Chi-Coms continue to say that anyone who connects the Xi Jinping Bat Flu to them will suffer all kinds of horrible repercussions.  Look, Chi-Coms, you may be going to control the world, but you don’t control it now.  -Chef Fritz.  Elsewhere, more medical workers are flowing into Texas to help with the spike in Chi-Vi cases down there.
  81. 2021 Friday I: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.60 (2) AstraZeneca $58.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $172.93 (4) BioNTech $358.48 (5) Moderna $382.22.
  82. 2021 Friday J: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $85.40 (2) General Dynamics: $199.72 (3) Boeing: $221.66 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.99 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $364.99.
  83. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– A mother is suing the Transportation Security Administration- the TSA- because TSA goons strip-searched her tranny kid.   Next, now that the U.S. Supreme Court has struck down by a vote of 6-3 Joe Biden’s evictions moratorium, the question is would the Biden regime honor it?  Next, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, is demanding that slobbering Joe Biden recognize the opposition in Afghanistan and NOT- we repeat- the Taliban.  (Note- the Antitrump is going to do the exact opposite of whatever President Donald J. Trump and common sense would do).  Meanwhile, POS Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, says there will be ‘NO impeachment of Joe Biden resulting from the regime’s bad decisions.’  (Note- to Ronna McDaniel, chairperson of the RNC, you can understand WHY millions of Republicans will no longer donate to the organization because of all the RATS within the party.  Clean out the rats and watch the money flow, don’t and watch it go).
  84. 2021 Friday L: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Aaron Babbitt, widower of Ashli Babbitt murdered by Capitol Hill Police Department Lt. Michael Byrd says that ‘D.C. and the media ran cover’ for this POS scumbag who shot an unarmed woman.  (Note- most of us believe that since Lt. Byrd is flawed from having two incidences of leaving his loaded service firearm in public places, Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ordered that ‘someone had to die’ during the riots.  It is as if a certain degree of violence had to occur so it could be spun to the advantage of the Democrats.  Shame on them).  Meanwhile, District of Columbia officials are bracing for the 20th anniversary of September 11, 2001, terror attacks as well as a protest in support of the brave souls being held in the D.C. slammer for having been on Capitol Hill on January 06, 2021.
  85. 2021 Friday M: Political News I– As Democratic-Socialists continue saying ignorant things (Sandy “The Fly” Cortez ranks towards the top), U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Stephen Breyer says, ‘it’s not at all inappropriate for politics to affect his retirement decision.’  The socialists want him to step down so they can place some loony tunes crackpot loser onto the nation’s high court.  We hope he stays.  Next, a new Rasmussen Reports poll says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s popularity continues to fall which we believe is because of all the lying in which, he has engaged.  He must be careful, look at what happened to ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov.  Like Daedalus and his son, Icarus, Icarus flew too close to the Sun and went down like a stone.  It is important for one to know their place in the world.  Speaking of Cuomo, Politico reports that the disgraced Empire State former chief executive is ‘plotting revenge’ on new Empire State Governor Kathy Hochul.  Why?  She didn’t bring you down, Mr. Cuomo, you brought yourself down, dimwit.
  86. 2021 Friday N: How bad can things continue getting?  I hate to say it, I think we are on the cusp of disaster.  Why the Chi-Coms, the Russians, the Iranians, the North Koreans, even the Cubans and the Venezuelans and every Third World terrorist group are not moving against us this very minute is mind-boggling.  We have a feeble president, one who clasps his head in his hands and mumbles, stumbles, rumbles around are not only humiliating, but it’s also damned well dangerous.  PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP, WE NEED YOU BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE NOW.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.
  87. 2022 Saturday:  I don’t know about you, but I am still awaiting Chief Justice John Roberts to release the report on the leaker of the opinion written by Associate Justice Samuel Alito that overturned the vile Roe v. Wade.  Many seemingly have forgotten he promised to do this.  Others suspect he will never do it whereas we here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have come to believe that Chief Justice Roberts is the leaker.  For more than a decade now, conservatives have been suspicious of the ‘conservatism’ of Justice Roberts because he seems to be more in the tank for the Democrats and the liberals- especially since President Donald J. Trump changed the face of the court with three right-leaning justices- because he believes in some sort of equilibrium so long as it leans left.  He is the one, after all, who prevented the deeply flawed Obamacare from falling onto the scrap heap of history just as he has saved other leftist laws.  I suspect that he is the sole leaker of the decision ending Roe because he is beholden to the LEFT and always has been.  All one need do is to look at the president who appointed him: George W. Bush.  Boy, do we have buyer’s remorse on that one.  Let me know what you think- Chef Goldie McNamara.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0934 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Verbena Sundown.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

After 36 years, Beach Boys vocalist, Mike Love, returned with his second solo album: “Unleash the Love,” put out on November 17, 2017.  Mike Love had been compiling songs for more than three decades, having a musical vision contained within his mind but requiring an army of musicians to make the dream materialize.  Eventually, he brought in loads of musicians and over the course of the sessions released a quality solo album.  He included a disc featuring re-records of earlier Beach Boys songs so as to keep the money flowing from updated copyrights which is cool.  Performers such as Eric Burdon have done the same thing only he unwittingly lost control of his music.  Mr. Love has not.  We hope you will seek this album out at your favorite site for the best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

228. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, AUGUST 16, 2022

2020 Sunday B: The Democrats continue undergoing meltdowns as they blast the Trump administration for proposing cuts to the U.S. Postal Service.

  60. 2020 Sunday B: The Democrats continue undergoing meltdowns as they blast the Trump administration for proposing cuts to the U.S. Postal Service.  They want more money going to the USPS so it can ‘manage the increase in mail-in ballots.’  You know, there was a time when the Democrats attempted to conceal their election-stealing attempts whereas now, they could give a hoot.  Various cities have reported boxes of election ballots piling up at post offices or at storage sites, ballots that will flood in on Election Day all in favor of Democrats.  Democrats demand the U.S. postmaster testify in Congress on August 24, the day the GOP Convention commences.  As for election-thieving, well, two can play the same game and when the Democrats are BLOWN out in November, let us see what the sniveling scumbags try to do then?  An actual attempted overthrow of the government?  Thank God gun sales are skyrocketing across the country- careful what you wish for, Democratic Party!  DO NOT ALLOW THE DEMOCRATS TO STEAL THE ELECTION!

Truman so famously said, “The buck stops here.”  Next, Politico stuck a journalistic dagger into the neck of dictator Joe Biden when they said his ‘chip on his shoulder’ is what caused the debacle the world is watching in Afghanistan as he would NOT listen to his generals.  In other Afghan-related news, at least seven desperate people are dead from falling several thousand feet from outbound aircraft at the Kabul airport.  Meanwhile, outside the White House, Afghan Americans are protesting the White House usurper by shouting, “THEY’RE KILLING OUR PEOPLE!”
  69. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– today is Day No. 146 for the ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in this position of extreme importance.  It is also Day No. 52 since her singular visit to the slowest section along the southern border.  Here are the numbers for illegal aliens and the cost of caring for them as provided by OAN.  First, the cost this day alone is: $652,723,151.  Next, here is the appalling cost of caring for the illegal aliens in the country for just this year: $248,821,415,836.  Imagine the good that money could do for the American people and not the flotsam and jetsam of the Third World?  Next, here are the numbers of illegals who have crossed the border in 2021: 2,555,525.  Finally, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of the numbers of illegals sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers for all time: 36,555,525.  Horrifying, simply horrifying.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  (Note- since this blog’s inception back in July 2009, we estimated the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the country somewhere around 35-50 million back then whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million which is not good, folks).
  70. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Talks between the Maduro regime in Venezuela and its opposition are underway in Mexico City.  Meanwhile, after months of turmoil in Malaysia, the prime minister who seized power in a coup relinquished it.  Next, Lebanese police officers and violent protesters clashed in the norther portion of the country where a fuel tank exploded over the weekend killing and injuring numerous people.  Elsewhere, as the U.S. flees out of Afghanistan, the Chi-Coms are telling Taipei to reconsider their belief that the U.S. will come to their rescue when the People’s Liberation Army begins landing on Taiwanese beaches.  Meanwhile, the U.N. Security Council pushes for talks to bring about the formation of the new government in the new Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
  71. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– As the Taliban continues accumulating and securing power across Afghanistan, Taliban thugs both inside and outside the empty U.S. embassy are chanting, “Death to America, death to America, death to America.”  Nice they love us so much.  Meanwhile, at the airport in Kabul, U.S. troops in two difference incidents shoot dead a pair of Taliban thugs.  Chaos at the airport has put a hold on exit flights.  As the catastrophe unfolds, dictator Joe Biden says he stands by his decision ‘to flee Afghanistan and to leave the people to the mercies of the Taliban.’  Rep. Michael McCaul, R-TX 10th congressional district, said today that this is “Saigon on steroids.”
  72. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– today Health experts announced that ‘herd immunity may never be achieved with COVID-19.’ Meanwhile, Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says the American people must ‘set aside personal liberties so we can join forces to do battle with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.’ (It is ALWAYS, we must surrender our God-given personal liberties to climb aboard the BIG GOVERNMENT train).
  73. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– An Indiana man found himself in the intensive care unit of his city after contracting flesh-eating bacteria following the consumption of raw oysters.  (Folks, we gave up eating raw oysters long ago and would recommend that everyone else do the same thing.  Besides, they do not do what people believe they do, it is all in the mind).
  74. 2021 Monday L: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– Harvard University and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, medical professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff told Greg Kelly on Newsmax over the weekend that Joe Biden’s demand for vaccine mandates creates distrust of the vaccines in people who have already had the disease.  Dr. Kulldorff says it must stop.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Dr. Francis Collins- Director of National Institute of Health- says that ‘unvaccinated Americans pose more problems for the United States than do the millions of illegal aliens flooding into the country.’  What a party apparatchik.  In Colorado on the first day of school, masks and law enforcement officers are all over the place.  Speaking of schools and COVID-19, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that the feds ‘cannot pay off school superintendents’ to follow the regime’s orders.  Regarding Florida, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says that ‘parents cannot sue over the mask ban’ he put into place with an executive order.
  75. 2021 Monday M: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow The Money) News– (1) Pfizer $48.91 (2) AstraZeneca $58.75 (3) Johnson & Johnson $177.84 (4) BioNTech $343.10 (5) Moderna $373.86.  As we say, IF you wish to understand the reason for the BIG PUSH that everyone ‘get vaccinated’ or undergo immediate transport to Devil’s Island or to a leper colony (as well as all the mask mandates), just follow the money.  Politicians and bigwigs and other titans of the globe all are invested in these companies, companies that CANNOT BE SUED no matter how badly one is affected by a vaccine, which also gives them incredible power over the people they rule.
  76. 2021 Monday N: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Arizona announces that the week of August 22, 2021, is when they will release the preliminary report on the election fraud and corruption that went on in the Copper State surrounding the November 2020 Elections.  Meanwhile, as the disastrous Biden regime stumbles about like a punch-drunk boxer, we hope that more states will begin audits of the 2020 Elections because this disastrous mess cannot continue much longer.  Yes, we do miss President Donald J. Trump and he must return to the White House.  Those involved in the rampant election fraud and corruption must go to prison if not to the gallows for their crimes and perfidy.  There are many, many traitors who must pay the price for their betrayal, their disloyalty, and their treachery.  Chef Hector Santanamos Del Soto.
  77. 2021 Monday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Now that Joe Biden has sold out the Afghan people to the Taliban and- even worse– to the Chi-Coms, President Donald J. Trump asks the question: ‘who will Joe Biden sell out next?’  The President also slammed the usurper in the White House for his ‘grossly incompetent’ abandonment of Afghanistan to the jihadists. 
  78. 2021 Monday P: Joe Biden News I– Afghan Americans arrived outside the White House over the past weekend protesting the abandonment of their country to the cruel jihadist hoodlums.  Speaking of senile Joe Biden, chief pollster at the Trafalgar Group, Robert Cahaly- says that ‘Joe Biden is more popular than his policies.’  All day, the White House said that Joe Biden was ‘going to address the American people’ on the mess in Afghanistan.  Finally, he did and did what all of us knew he would: blame President Donald J. Trump and the Afghan people for being losers.  Wow.  The Deputy National Security Adviser Jonathan Finer says there will be ‘grave consequences for the Taliban if the riffraff interfere in the U.S. withdrawal from Kabul and across Afghanistan.’  Even worse for Joe Biden is his reluctance to give American citizens priority in the evacuation out of the destabilized Central Asian country.
  79. 2021 Monday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. State Department said earlier today that ALL U.S. embassy staff is at the airport in Kabul but thanks to the pandemonium occurring there, the U.S. authorities on the ground have suspended outbound flights until control can be reestablished.   Meanwhile, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark A. Milley is defending his misguided assessment as to the strength of the Taliban.  (Note- Gen. Milley, you sound like the Nazis who underestimated Russian troop strength in late 1941 through 1942.  YOU must resign, sir.  NOW).  In other Biden regime news, Joe says the USDA is going to permanently increase food stamp benefits, i.e., SNAP benefits, because there are millions of foreign invaders who need to eat.  In other Biden regime news, the Bidenistas are filing a challenge to a recent court order to revive President Donald J. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico Policy.”  Come on, Joe, we have enough illegal aliens in the country.  Can’t we stop already? 
  80. 2021 Monday R: Political News I– As things continue deteriorating in Afghanistan, Vice President Mike Pence places the blame for the calamity unfolding there squarely atop the culprit responsible: drooling Joe Biden.  Former Army General (and CIA Director) David H. Petraeus says that ‘no good can come from the precipitous abandonment of Kabul to the Islamists.’  Security experts are now saying that ‘another 9-11-style attack is only a matter of time’ (especially with wide-open borders).  As things worsen in Kabul, the Republican Party is demanding the resignations of Joe Biden, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and U.S. Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer.  (Speaking of ‘Cryin’ Chuck,’ he is outraged over the need to crack down on fake China Virus vaccine cards.  Chuck- f**k you).
  81. 2021 Monday S: Political News II– An angry House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, is demanding that the House of Representatives launch a probe into the abrupt collapse of Afghanistan.  Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, says that ‘Joe Biden takes the final blame for the collapse of Afghanistan.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s arrogance led to the turmoil in Afghanistan.’  Amen.  Meanwhile, former Director of National Intelligence Rick Grenell is accusing the Biden regime of outing U.S. intelligence officers on Twitter.
  82. 2021 Monday T: Political News III– Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies told Newsmax that Joe Biden may be unable to control the amount of Afghan refugees who will try to enter our country.  Next, Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden should resign from office over the disaster in Afghanistan.’   U.S. GOP Senate campaign Chairman Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, is floating the idea that the time is now to use the 25th Amendment to get enfeebled old Joe Biden out of the White House ASAP.  Former National Security Adviser to President Donald J. Trump- H.R. McMaster- says that ‘Joe Biden’s humanitarian disaster will equate with increased security risks for the United States.’  Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Joe Biden is the most incompetent commander-in-chief in the past forty years’ (the other one being President Jimmy Carter).   (Note- Joe Biden claims he will not repeat the past mistakes made by three other presidents in Afghanistan).   
  83. 2021 Monday U: Political News IV– Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, says that ‘firings must occur surrounding the debacle in Afghanistan.’  Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says that ‘Joe Biden ignored warnings regarding Afghanistan and now owns the disaster.’  Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, told Greg Kelly on Newsmax that the ‘administration had NO plan with which to evacuate our embassy or the people who fought alongside us in the Central Asian hellhole.’  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, says ‘we should have maintained a presence at Baghram Air Base instead of leaving it to the enemy.’  Both agree that WHEN we have to return to the ‘graveyard of empires,’ the Taliban will be better armed with U.S. abandoned weapons of all types.’

Trump throughout 2020.  To keep unwelcome news trending for President Trump, they would attach old stories to new ones to keep them pushed up to the front of the pack.  Elsewhere, T-Mobile is probing claims that hackers ripped off the data of 100 million users.
  88. 2021 Monday Z: Environmental News I– As we have said for close to a decade now, the Sun is the driver of all climate change, NOT CO2.  Well, a new study confirms that but observe this: solar activity- sunspots, solar flares, and solar winds- ebbs and flows.  When there is more activity, the entire Solar System warms up and when there is less, it cools down.  IF you get rid of ALL carbon dioxide emissions, plants will wither and die, oxygen production will fall off, and eventually, you end up with a planet like Mars.  All one must do to learn the truth is to find unbiased university professors willing to teach truthful geography classes and not this dumb-ass Marxist ‘global warming’ bulls**t dimwits such as AOC, Al Gore, and Greta Thunberg run around squealing and crying about.  Wake up, dummies.
  89. 2021 Monday AA: Natural Disasters News– Like California, wildfires are raging across Spain.  Meanwhile, one person died over the weekend as a party boat sailing the calm waters of Lake Conroe in the Texas town of Conroe flipped over when a freak storm crashed into the ship.  The two-story craft had fifty-three people aboard when the mishap occurred, and an older man died at the hospital following injuries sustained in the accident.

Newsom, if you even cared about your job, get work underway NOW on the Sacramento Delta diversion project that will safely send northern California water south to the farmers and the citizens of the state.  Loser.  Regarding “Nazi” Newsom, a new poll (supposedly) claims Golden State voters find themselves split in the recall effort to remove the WORST governor in all fifty states and five territories.

  97. 2022 Tuesday: The plot against President Donald J. Trump continues to grow by the day.  I would like to ask the readers of our blog, did you ever think- since we began back in 2009 writing for the Chi-Com blog site, Choseit.com, that we would have the misfortune of seeing the collapse of our country into Venezuela-style socialism?  Oh, it might not be that way at the moment, folks, but if we do not continue kicking butt from today onward and into 2024, it will be here before you know it.  You folks in Alaska- send Senator Lisa Murkowski packing and elect Kelly Tshibaka and Sarah Palin.  You folks in Wyoming, send that godawful witch “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney packing.  It is time to reclaim our country and to continue reclaiming it.  It’s that or troubled times for all of us but only if we allow it.  I seriously doubt my fellow Americans will permit this to befall our wonderful country.  We know we won’t.  Tell me what you think- Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0924 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “You Forgot My Tip.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Live long enough and eventually, one will hear every last lick recorded by a veteran band which is why we have “The Big Beat 1963,” a ‘compilation album’ of sorts that came out on December 17, 2013.  Truly more of a Brian Wilson album seeing as how the compilations are his, the album features tracks he wrote prior to the Beach Boys recorded by other up-and-coming pop bands and artists at the time.  According to the source for everything- world-famous Wikipedia- the album was released to ‘keep up with European copyright laws’ that said if you didn’t release something by such and such a date, one’s copyright on the material could be lost.  Thus, we have “The Big Beat 1963,” an album containing 22 heretofore unreleased tracks.  We hope you seek this one out and add it to your growing list of recording artists.  We think you will enjoy it as much as we have.  Who knows?  You might even be able to find it at your local library.

207. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, JULY 26, 2022

2022 Tuesday: I would love to sit down with “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, the soon-to-be ex-representative from Wyoming and tell this incredibly stupid bi**h that the more she and her cronies go after President Donald J. Trump, the stronger they make him and his movement. I know Democrats who want to see Joe Biden relegated to the dumpster fire of history and President Trump and pro-America politicians and bureaucrats returned to the White House and government.

[v]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 308,544 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 95,534 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  60. 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: 3,916,002 confirmed cases, 64,267 confirmed deaths, and 2,091,766 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,525,342 confirmed cases, 38,670 confirmed deaths, and 2,277,524 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 40,659 confirmed cases, 527 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 470,748 confirmed cases, 6,137 confirmed deaths, and 229,906 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Arizona: they have 918,609 confirmed cases, 18,171 confirmed deaths, and 875,389 confirmed recoveries. [vi]    
  61. 2021 Monday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 862,717 confirmed cases, 6,461 confirmed deaths, and 843,855 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Timor-Leste, 160th country on the list: 10,348 cases of the virus, 26 confirmed deaths and 9,627 confirmed recoveries. [vii]     
  62. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,144.31, UP 82.76 points (+0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,840.71, UP 3.72 points (+0.025%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,422.30, UP 10.51 points (+0.24%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $71.98 per barrel, +0.09 (+0.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,799.00 per troy oz., -0.20 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.21 per troy ounce, -0.11 (-0.43%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,063.10 per troy oz, -7.00 (-0.65%) while the price of COPPER is $4.61 per pound, +0.02 (+0.58%).

The price of NEODYMIUM is $720,000.00 per ton, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,503.25 per ton, -4.00 (-0.16%). [x]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000027.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.     In Falklands Islands Pound, one greenback equals 0.708843 and in Fijian Dollar, a buck equals 2.06 and in French Pacific Franc, one dollar equals 100.90 of theirs.[xi]       
  63. 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 and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.332 per gallon, $2.967 in Florida, $4.065 in Hawaii, and $3.837 in Washington state. [xii]    Let’s look at one other location- Iowa: $2.983.  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- Uganda: $4.505 per U.S. Gallon.[xiii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,568,407,681,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  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 Germany, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Bermuda with $73 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  64. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 125 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and her 31st day since her one and only visit to the El Paso Sector along the border.  Sadly, for the country, the invasion of the United States continues around the clock as thousands cross every single day into the country, turning themselves over to border authorities, and then being distributed across the entire country.   We learned today that Joe Biden’s halting of the border wall project is costing U.S. taxpayers $3 million per day in shut down costs, security costs, and other incidental costs. 
  65. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, raised an important question: ‘Where was U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ warning to all the illegals flooding across the southern border?’  After all, the DHS secretary warned Cubans NOT to venture to the United States as they would be denied entry into the United States.   Meanwhile, Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says the Biden halt on building the border wall is “a crime against nature and intelligence.”  Next, Governor Kristi Noem journeyed to the Tex-Mex border today to view the ongoing Joe Biden-caused crisis occurring there around the clock.
  66. 2021 Monday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– The Tunisian president has shuttered the doors on the nation’s parliament amid rising civil unrest.  Elsewhere, the Russians did some chest-thumping today by announcing the development of a ‘doomsday plane.’  What is this?  A nuclear-powered aircraft that can remain in the skies overhead 24/7/365 armed with nuclear weapons?  That would be something.  Meanwhile, we learned today that HUNTER BIDEN’S art agent has had DEEP TIES to communist China since 2014.  Say it ain’t so, drooling Joe!  All this talk about ‘ethics’ regarding Hunter Biden’s crooked dealings is nothing more than BULLSHIT.
  67. 2021 Monday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– France announced that it warned the United States back in 2015 about the COVID-19 experiments going on in the Wuhan Institute of Virology.  Did the U.S. take note of the warning?  It seems not.   Likewise, Rep. Mo Brooks, R-AL 5th congressional district, says of the Chi-Vi that ‘COVID-19 is part of the Chi-Coms unrestricted biowarfare program against the United States.’  It is getting close to time when we should light these communist SOBs up with as many neutron bombs as we can muster.  Right on cue, drooling Joe Biden plans to keep travel restrictions, i.e., mask requirements, in place citing the various COVID-19 variants.  Hey, Joe!  How about closing the f**king southern border?   (Note- none of us believe that Joe Biden can tell his ass from a hole in the ground.  Yes, that’s cruel, we know it, but so apropos).
  68. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– A national debate continues over the wearing/not wearing of masks in schools as the first day of instruction draws closer.  However, we learned today that on Friday, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki said that the White House is ‘NOT mandating Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccinations for White House staff.’  Wow.  What’s good enough for them is good enough for us.   Elsewhere, as the war against the unvaccinated continues, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says the ‘ban on the unvaccinated is akin to segregation.’  Amen.  In other Chi-Vi news, the Veterans Administration becomes the first federal agency requiring EVERY health care employee to be vaccinated for Wuhan Virus Crisis. 
  69. 2021 Monday K: Health and Medical Alerts– California will now require proof of vaccination for the China Virus from ALL state workers no matter who you are.   Regarding the Chi-Com Beijing Bug, a new Rasmussen Poll says that public opinion of the media’s COVID-19 coverage has soured since President Donald J. Trump left the White House.   Elsewhere, Pfizer and Moderna- according to a report- are going to expand their ongoing studies into Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines for kids aged 5-to-11.  The kids don’t need the damned vaccines, folks.
  70. 2021 Monday L: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Wisconsin GOP lawmakers are now promising a forensic audit of the 2020 Elections in their state.  We know a great deal of election fraud occurred in the Cheese Head State in the hours post-Election Day.
  71. 2021 Monday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is demanding that citizenship for the DREAMERS- illegal aliens brought here as brats- must be included in the $3.5 trillion budget bill.  Oh, really? 
  72. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Rep. Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, has unveiled a new bill today, the “Free Britney Act” in honor of pop star Britney Spears who is trapped in a conservatorship run by her father.  We hope she is able to get out of this cruel and highly unnecessary imposition on her life and that perhaps her leeching father will end up in the slammer.  Meanwhile, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says that ‘Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill will create a reverse Robin Hood effect by which, the rich will get richer and the poor poorer.’  Amen.  Speaking of the infrastructure bill, President Donald J. Trump says that the GOP must wait on passing this mess until after the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Amen to this, too.
  73. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– A new poll says that a whopping 81-percent of the American people are alarmed by the growing presence of the Chi-Coms across the United States government as well as their presence in media and popular culture.  The American people also are fearful that the Chi-Coms are buying up vast tracts of U.S. farmland.  This crap must stop, and the Chi-Coms must be booted from everything into which, their evil tentacles have slithered. 
  74. 2021 Monday P: Political News III– “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani continues to blast Joe Biden for cozying up with communists while the Cuban people continue protesting for their freedom! [xv]  In fact, over the weekend in Washington, D.C., a crowd of Cuban Americans showed up and raised their voices in front of the White House, demanding the Biden regime do something to help their friends, relatives, neighbors, and fellow citizens.  Speaking of protests, another good-sized crowd showed up in front of the Joestapo D.C. headquarters where more than 500 Capitol Hill protesters are still being held and abused.  For whatever reason, the D.C. Joestapo is trying to crush out the spirits of American patriots by abusing and mistreating these people who six months after the ‘incident’ are still being denied bail.  Whatever happened to bail reform? 
  75. 2021 Monday Q: Political News IV– Rep. Tom Emmer, R-MN 6th congressional district, head of the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) guarantees that the GOP is going to retire U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, D-CA 12th congressional district, ‘PERMANENTLY.’  Man, she needs to be retired now.  The nonagenarian, disheveled, lemon-sucking speaker should have been retired years ago.  We hope you are able to keep your word on this.  We would rather see Rep. “Shtupping Steny” Hoyer, DS-MD 5th congressional district, running the show.  
  76. 2021 Monday R: Political News V– Tomorrow is the beginning of U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s Stalinist show trial- the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots Select Committee- and all eyes are on Washington, D.C. for the SHOW TRIAL OF THE CENTURY!  Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-FL 1st congressional district, says that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, 23rd congressional district, MUST PULL Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, from the select committee.  We agree.  IF Leader McCarthy fails to do this, AICPENDBLOG.COM members in California will work at getting him out in November 2022.  In other news, Donald Trump Jr. is leading in favorability polls.   (Leader McCarthy did label Kinzinger and Cheney as little more than “Pelosi Republicans.”  How true.  Vote this scum out of office).
  77. 2021 Monday S: Miscellaneous News I– A New Jersey woman continues to suffer daily fines of $250 for putting out signs that are derogatory of enfeebled Joe Biden in her front yard.  Where can the AICPENDBLOG.COM send money to help you continue putting out these patriotic signs?  In other miscellaneous news, Chef Lilah Paulikovich of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day says that over the weekend when she was citing VAERS on our Twitter page that a reader said you ‘can’t take everything the federal Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System says.’  That left her somewhat flabbergasted as she said to this individual that ‘you liberals drop to your knees in front of big government on everything else it says so why not VAERS?’  No answer to her question.  Isn’t it amazing how libs always pick and choose which government entities they choose to follow or quote?
  78. 2021 Monday T: Economic News– Bitcoin’s rise has helped to lift all other cryptocurrencies up in value although the ‘Tether’ cryptocurrency is being investigated for possible bank fraud.  Elsewhere, Dutch company Philips beats Q2 forecasts ahead of respirator device recall.  In other economic news, Irish budget airlines Ryanair projects 100 million passengers this year.  Even though they have had some downturns, they are bullish on their future.
  79. 2021 Monday U: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– Noted communist financier George Soros has funded more than $1 million to help ‘Defund the Police’ efforts across the United States.  When the hell is Black Ops going to run this bastard to earth and whack him?  Enough is flipping enough already.  In other news, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, DS-NY, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov, is questioning the neutrality of the Empire State’s prosecutors who are investigating the cretin for a variety of crimes such as sexual assault, killing nursing home residents by seeding facilities with Chi-Vi-infected patients, and other crimes.  We hope to see the governor wearing an orange jump suit sometime soon.  Elsewhere, lawyers for so-called ‘QAnon Shaman’ Jacob Chansley are trying to get their client released now that he is suffering from mental illness due to his ongoing mistreatment in the Joestapo jail in Washington, D.C.  LET THESE PEOPLE OUT OF PRISON NOW- this is not America.  IF it is, you are behaving like the federal government did back when the accused assassins of President Abraham Lincoln were mistreated and tortured.  This is NOT good.
  80. 2021 Monday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– House Democrats are unifying behind their goal of dirtying the souls of EVERY American by stripping away the Hyde and Helms Amendments that prohibit using taxpayer dollars to fund abortions in the United States (Hyde Amendment) and abroad (Helms Amendment).  WTF do the taxpayers have to fund abortions for women both here in the United States and across the world.  WTF is wrong with these evil people?  They are putting bullseyes on their backs, that’s for sure.  (Note- the Democrats and the RINOs reap big rewards from money culled from the sale of fetal body parts that end up in their hip pockets via political donations).
  81. 2021 Monday W: Big Tech News– In an all-too common occurrence, hackers hacked into What’s App and got the information from approximately 1,500 U.S. government employees as well as from journalists and activists.  It’s almost as if BIG TECH permits this kind of crap to happen.   Elsewhere, Amazon.com is pushing to get individual apartment keys from building superintendents so as to enter people’s apartments ostensibly to leave people’s packages inside.  Wow.  What could go wrong with this?
  82. 2021 Monday X: Natural Disasters News– Due to a massive sandstorm raging in Utah, at least seven people were killed in a massive vehicle pileup and numerous other people injured.  Elsewhere, five firefighters who suffered fire burns in the Devil’s Creek, Montana, are recovering.  God bless you, folks!
  83. 2021 Monday Y: Sports News I– A U.S. medical student has won an Olympics first and won GOLD in fencing.  She beat a Russian out.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Army Lt. Amber English won a GOLD medal in skeet shooting.  In other Olympics news, four new sports are debuting this year: karate, surfing, skateboarding, and competitive climbing.   Sadly, viewing numbers for the 2021 Tokyo Summer Olympics are way, way down.  Maybe get rid of the WOKE bullshit? 
  84. 2021 Monday Z: U.S. Military News– As all hell continues breaking across Afghanistan, the U.S. military says that it will support its Afghan allies with continued airstrikes against Taliban and al-Qaida targets.  Light ‘em up.
  85. 2022 Tuesday: I would love to sit down with “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney, the soon-to-be ex-representative from Wyoming and tell this incredibly stupid bi**h that the more she and her cronies go after President Donald J. Trump, the stronger they make him and his movement.  I know Democrats who want to see Joe Biden relegated to the dumpster fire of history and President Trump and pro-America politicians and bureaucrats returned to the White House and government.  Sadly, when people are as ignorant as are “Lyin’ Liz” and Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, they cannot see the path before them, only the one behind them, the one they cannot interpretate properly.  We, the American people are tired of these lying scumbags and will go to the ends of the Earth to get every single one of them out of office beginning with “Lyin’ Liz.”  You can count on it.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0903 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sand, Verbenas, and Red Rocks.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Beach Boys’ wunderkind, Brian Wilson, “Pet Sounds Live,” came out on June 12, 2002.  (Note- we at the AICPENDBLOG.COM occasionally get our dates mixed up, this we have two albums that appear earlier than several of the previous offerings- it is what it is, please oblige us.  Thank you).  This album features the complete “Pet Sounds” album performed in its entirety in Great Britain earlier in the year.  Once again, the sensational composer has a stellar cast of musicians accompanying him and the album from 1966 appears in its glorious entirety in the way Wilson wanted it to appear.   There are 14 tunes here (16 on the Japanese exclusive release later in the year which includes what we would think are the encore tunes) which are startlingly enchanting recreation of a glorious album from an equally glorious time.  We hope you will seek this one out at your favorite haunt for music and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure; we think you will be glad that you did.  Enjoy.

[iii] 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.

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

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

  78. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 122 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border separating the United States from barbarism and her 28th day since she ‘visited the border’ on her one and only photo op trip.  Joe Biden- strip this gibbering jackal, this shrieking night bird, this howling jackanapes, this screeching forest orangutan, Willie Brown’s mattress, and send her home to spend more time with her family.  She is a failure in everything she does.  Meanwhile, construction restarted on the border wall in Texas as Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, got the project going again using taxpayer dollars and donations to do what must be done: defending the United States from the massive numbers of illegals trying to storm our country.

[xviii]  As everyone should know, the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has been around since early 2009 and back then, we estimated the numbers of illegals within the United States then as between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the honest-to-God numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  This is insane and no country can withstand a tidal wave of illegal aliens as we now are.  Round ‘em up along with whatever children the scum have fathered or given birth to here, put them in tent prison camps in the Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Texas deserts, and when air transport, derelict freighters, buses, cattle cars, and any other type of transportation arises, get them the hell out of here.  NOW.
  80. 2021 Friday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– A Gallup poll says that 31-percent of ALL Americans want immigration decreased.  We think that immigration must be curtailed as it was early in the previous century as we do not need a tidal wave of ignorant, permanent lower-class dependents sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers.  Build the f**king wall and deport them all.   Meanwhile, Rep. Mike Johnson, R-LA 4th CD, is demanding answers for WHY a large number of Haitians allowed to enter the U.S. via the southern border were dumped all over the state with no advance warning to local authorities.
  81. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Chi-Com bigwig, a man who fashions himself as the global dictator, Xi Jinping and his corrupt, evil regime have slapped sanctions on former U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and five others after the Biden regime issued an advisory warning U.S. business of the risks of doing business in Hong Kong.  Meanwhile, reports suggest that the United States is doing what it should have done prior to the withdrawal from Afghanistan and that is launching air-and-drone strikes against weapons captured by the Taliban that we left behind as well as on Taliban targets, too.  Good.  Use neutron bombs, irradiate these barbarous scumbags.
  82. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden continues taking heat for his irresponsible comments on Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines.  The senile old fool says that if you get vaccinated you ‘won’t get sick, you won’t be hospitalized, and most of all, you won’t die.’  Joe, what the hell have you been smoking you old fool?  Add to Joe’s woes over his ludicrous comments regarding inflation and we see an ‘administration’ on the cusp of going down the crapper faster than Jimmy Carter’s.   The country needs deliverance from this insanity.  Can’t Barack Hussein Obama do a better job as the “Cho-Mo Joe whisperer’ than what he’s presently doing?
  83. 2021 Friday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– The regime White House says it has the ‘highest ethical standards of ANY White House in U.S. history’ even as a growing cacophony of the American people question drug-addled Hunter Biden’s ‘private art sales.’  Who is buying his ‘13th Floor Elevators album covers-style artworks’ and how much are they paying for this psychedelic crap?  The man is NOT an artist, he is little more than a dope head with predilections for young children like his father, regime leader Joe Biden.  In other Biden regime news, when asked by a reporter as to numbers inside the White House afflicted by the ‘VID, Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki responded with: “Why do you need to know the numbers?”  Speaking of “Circle Back” Psaki, she also guaranteed White House reporters that ethics safeguards are now in place to make sure Hunter Biden is not selling his artworks to America’s enemies to open a back channel to the voice in his feeble father’s ear.
  84. 2021 Friday L: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– After the Major League Baseball 2021 Season concludes, the fabled Cleveland Indians have announced that in order to appease the WOKIES going berserk on social media, they are going to change their name to- get this- the Cleveland Guardians which sounds much like a DEFENSIVE name, not an OFFENSIVE one.  If it makes you feel better, then go for it but we hope the Atlanta Braves and the Kansas City Chiefs keep their names.  President Donald J. Trump had to add his two cents to the conservation and called the name change a ‘big disgrace.’  Amen.    
  85. : Whacked-Out News of the Day– Meanwhile, Tennessee’s state house removed the bust of Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and sent it God knows where.  The bust was installed back in 1979.  The man was the creator of the Ku Klux Klan; however, destroying history is foolish because in so doing, the lessons the next generation can learn disappear, possibly to be repeated again at some point in the future.   Curiously, the busts of two famous U.S. Admirals- David Farragut and Albert Gleaves- so as NOT to hurt the feelings of the Forrest bust.  There is NO other explanation as to WHY one would remove two U.S. heroes.
  86. 2021 Friday N: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– St. Louis Circuit Court Judge Jason Sengheiser blasted the St. Louis prosecutors office over the dismissals of murder charges against three separate defendants.   The judge accused the office of Kim Gardner of shirking its duty of protecting the community from violent thugs.  What the hell is wrong with these people?   In other despicable news, President Donald J. Trump’s former inaugural chairman Tom Barrack walked out of jail today on a $250 million bond.  A $250 million bond.  What is this, a banana republic?  Flamin’ crap, folks, the country is falling into the abyss.
  87. 2021 Friday O: U.S. House of Representatives News I– The House Freedom Caucus is pushing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD to employ a House rule that would allow the lower chamber to boot Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the rapidly deteriorating fascist dictator out of the speakership and onto her butt.  In a letter to the senior GOP leader in the House, they wrote: “We, the House Freedom Caucus, respectfully request that you pursue the authorization of the House Republican Conference, pursuant to Conference rules, to file and bring up a privileged motion by July 31, 2021, to vacate the chair and end Nancy Pelosi’s authoritarian reign as Speaker of the House.  Rule IX, Clause 3 of the Rules of the House of Representatives for the One Hundred Seventeenth Congress requires that ‘A resolution causing a vacancy in the Office of Speaker shall not be privileged except if offered by direction of a party caucus or conference.”  The fact that Speaker Mumbles booted two of Leader McCarthy’s picks from her sham January 06, 2021, Select Committee caused Leader McCarthy to say that in the ‘history of the House, this has never happened before.’  He pulled his remaining picks and the lemon-sucking speaker said ‘good’ and is going to run her ersatz committee with skunks such as Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th CD, as ‘representatives of the GOP.’  Leader McCarthy, we hope you will act on the Freedom Caucus’ letter.
  88. 2021 Friday P: Federal and State Court News– Finally!  A federal appellate court finds the CDC moratorium on evictions is ‘unconstitutional’ which is good news for landlords as they have bills to pay, too.
  89. 2021 Friday Q: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1679 what with a $140 million jackpot on the line: 13, 17, 19, 40, 69 and Mega 17.  Out of 63,207 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $8,638 apiece.
  90. 2022 Saturday: This past Tuesday, the dingleberry Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez- AOC- and her good buds, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar were arrested in front of the United States Supreme Court for blocking traffic.  Others of their ilk underwent ‘arrest,’ too, what with magic handcuffs behind their backs.  What a bullshit show.  Can we please remove these dimwitted skanks from office in November?  Besides, the ‘big booty Latina’s’ rear-end is the product of a Brazilian butt lift, it ain’t real just like her and her ’fiancé’ is little more than a suck-up punk.   One has to love Alex Stein, the comedian, the man is hilarious.

  25. 1944 Saturday: The Soviet military authorities set up the Polish National Liberation Committee. In essence, they are telling the Free Polish government broadcasting orders to the Polish people from London, ‘you aren’t in charge here.’  Soviet forces capture the strategic city of Chelmno and redouble their efforts at encircling Lublin, Poland.  Meanwhile, in London, Rick Davies, future keyboardist, and vocalist with the rock group, Supertramp[i], is born in Swindon, England.
  26. 1945 Sunday: As Allied bombers continue blasting Japan, the Japanese government still is not ready to throw in the towel.  Tokyo still thinks it can negotiate a peace and tells the Allies; we are ‘open to peace feelers but not to outright surrender.’  The Imperial Japanese are determined to defend their home islands to the bitter end no matter the cost.
  27. 1945 Sunday A: The 52nd U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau Jr. left office on this date.  A Democrat, Secretary Morgenthau served under President Franklin Delano Roosevelt from January 01, 1934, until today.

  47. 1999 Thursday: In Rome, N.Y., the 30th anniversary music festival celebrating the original Woodstock Music and Arts Festival of 1969 begins.  None of the bands there could ever approximate the original performers and add to that the fact the concert temperatures were over 100 degrees plus, people became violent and battled with one another bringing the mess to an end on the 25th.  Some said the fiasco was ‘the day the music died,’ a comment attributed to San Francisco Examiner journalist Jane Ganahi.  Yes, we think it did die there what with a mishmash of various groups.   The fact that people fought with each other, there were sexual assaults, rapes, arson, and looting says that this event was NOT about ‘peace and love.’  Nope.  Can’t rekindle the magic.
  48. 2000 Saturday: Astronomers at the University of Arizona announced they had a 17th moon orbiting Jupiter.

  50. 2004 Thursday: The September 11 commission’s final report hit the news on this date.  The 575-page report concluded that hijackers exploited “deep institutional failings within our government.”  The commission released it to the White House a day before.  This report has led many 9-11 Truthers to blame George W. Bush for allowing the jihadist scum to attack the United States so the President could launch a war with Iraq.  This is a bunch of felonious bull crap as EVERYONE—we repeat—EVERYONE believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
  51. 2005 Friday: A labor agreement ended an NHL lockout that canceled the previous hockey season. 
  52. 2008 Tuesday: Tropical Storm Dolly spun into a hurricane as it headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border.  Meanwhile, European Union ministers agreed to toughen sanctions against murderous thug-dictator President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe to pressure him to share power with the opposition.  Finally, actress Estelle Getty died in Los Angeles, California, at age 84.

  55. 2012 Sunday:  India elects Pranab Mukherjee as its new President.

  59. 2016 Friday: In Munich, Germany, a shooter murders 9 people at the Olympia shopping mall and then turns the gun on himself.   Meanwhile, Democratic Party 2016 Presidential nominee Hillary Rodham Clinton announces Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her vice-presidential nominee and running mate.
  60. 2017 Saturday: The United States Navy and President Donald J. Trump christened the newest aircraft carrier to the fleet, the USS Gerald R. Ford, on this date.    Meanwhile, in San Antonio, Texas, one of the worst incidents of tragedy in human trafficking occurs as 10 illegal aliens die in the back of an overheated semi-truck trailer.   
  61. 2018 Sunday: In response to a hateful speech by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, President Donald J. Trump sends out a Tweet in which, he warns the s-hole nation of “CONSEQUENCES.”  The Iranians would be wise to listen to the 45th president as he is not- we repeat NOT- the 44th president who was Pro-Iranian to the bone.   Meanwhile, in anti-gun Toronto, Canada, a shooter kills 2 and wounds 13 before being shot dead by law enforcement.
  62. 2019 Monday: The latest Marvel Comics superhero film, “Avengers: Endgame,” surpasses “Avatar” as the world’s highest-grossing film pulling in $2.9 billion.  People love the comic book movies it says a lot about the public paying big bucks to watch this schlock.   Meanwhile, Pakistani President Imran Khan meets with President Donald J. Trump at the White House on a state visit.   Elsewhere, in northwestern Syria at Maarat al-Numan, Russian warplanes in support of Syrian government forces kill at least 31 civilians.   Finally, President Donald J. Trump says that the ‘U.S. could win the war in Afghanistan in one week.’  “I just don’t want to kill 10 million people.  If I wanted to win that war, Afghanistan would be wiped off the face of the earth.”  (Mr. President, this is why God gave the United States the neutron bomb- use them!).
  63. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. State Department orders the closure- by this Friday- of the People’s Republic of (Communist) China’s consulate in Houston, Texas.  The Chinese within the facility immediately start a bonfire with which to eliminate all sensitive documents but everyone knows the Houston consulate (and most of the others) are hotbeds for hostile spying on everything in the area: U.S. air force and other military bases, the U.S. space program, and bio research, especially into the Chinese-manufactured Bat Flu pandemic sweeping the planet.  Meanwhile reports inform the world that everyday PRC warplanes are buzzing Taiwan, a free nation the communists are determined to reclaim.  STAND STRONG TAIWAN!  We advocate for a return of the Two-China policy by which, Taiwan becomes a free and independent nation as they were before the United Nations threw them under the bus in favor of the PRC- Chi-Com money bought them Taiwan’s seat in the U.N. and on the U.N. Security Council.      
  64. 2020 Wednesday A: President Donald J. Trump- with Attorney-General William “Bill” Barr, FBI Director Christopher A. Wray, Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf, and numerous others- announces to the nation Operation Legend, a partnership between federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to reclaim the streets from violent left-wing (and we believe communist China-funded) mobs that are murdering innocent civilians and harming countless others in numerous cities around the country.   These are standard, anti-crime-fighting activities the federal government has been carrying out for decades and all left-wing mayors and governors have been put on notice.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 307,730 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 96,348 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xv]        
  73. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.320 per gallon, $2.977 in Florida, $4.091 in Hawaii, and $3.836 in Washington state. [xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Connecticut: $3.154.  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- Communist China: $4.477 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,553,133,360,269 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 which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Canada, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is France with $111 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  74. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 121 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the CALAMITY occurring on the U.S.-Mexico border and to have done NOTHING about the crisis.  It’s also her 27th day since she has been to the border on her one and only trip with no mention as to when she might return to conduct a serious visit.  We await word of that momentous day if it should come because we would love to accompany “Willie Brown’s mattress.” 
  75. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News shared the latest figures on the southern border mess as they always do.  First, here is the cost this day of carrying for multitudes of illegal aliens in U.S. custody: $539,396,352.  Next, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal alien invaders: $221,909,319,680.  Moving on, here is the estimated number for illegals who have crossed into the U.S. this year: 2,274,392.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals in the U.S. as we speak: 36,274,392.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the inception of this blog back in 2009 that the numbers back then were around 35-50 million illegals whereas now, we believe a much more honest number is between 75-100 million illegal aliens.  Folks, we need to round them up, imprison them, and then deport them in a nonstop reverse caravan of outgoing flights, on freighters, on freight trains, via buses, and even on foot.  The country cannot handle these people, nor do we want them running amok in our country.  DEFEND THE COUNTRY NOW. [xix]
  76. 2021 Thursday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said that the U.S., South Korea, and Japan will counter any malevolent activity the North Koreans might commit.  While this is awesome, there is no pushback against the Chi-Coms.  The Chi-Coms reject a plan by the World Health Organization to determine the origins of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, the Democrats remain under fire from human rights groups because they won’t call out their communist overlords for human rights violations.
  77. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The ‘Mark of the Beast’ attitude continues what with a New Jersey hospital firing SIX employees who said ‘NO’ to getting one of the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Whatever happened to ‘my body, my choice?’  Obviously, it doesn’t count here.  Meanwhile, the White House is reviewing whether it’s going to impose mask mandates on the American people whether they want them or not.   Elsewhere, One America News reported today that the VAERS website says that COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S. jumped from 11.1 thousand to 12.3 thousand deaths since the start of the year.  This number is higher than the combined deaths for all other vaccines in the country since the federal government began counting such incidents.  And they wonder WHY millions of Americans are reluctant to get vaccinated.  Finally, the National Football League says that if outbreaks of COVID-19 hits unvaccinated players and staff on a team, that team will forfeit games.  Wow.
  78. 2021 Thursday J: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Oklahoma state lawmaker Sean Roberts urges an election audit within his state and the fake news media goes berserk and begins attacking him from all sides.  Meanwhile, security analyst Seth Keshel says that President Donald J. Trump actually won Texas by 55-percent rather than the 43-percent certified by the state.  Hence why there are calls for an Arizona-style election audit in the Lone Star State.
  79. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Joe Biden signed a bill with which to boost the Crime Victims Fund today.  Meanwhile, following yesterday’s town hall in Ohio, Joe continues being a laughingstock as there was less than less than 100 people in the auditorium with at least half of them being MSNBC employees.  The applause sounded canned as it has in other Joe Biden ‘appearances’ so it’s clear that most Americans see the drooling old dimwit as the usurper that he is.  How embarrassing.  Joe also is causing other consternation among his handlers as well as for the voice in his earpiece as now he is defending the Senate filibuster when a couple of weeks ago, he was calling it a ‘relic of Jim Crow.’  Come on, Joe, shake the damned cobwebs off, dude.  Come on, man!
  80. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland is going to Chicago to help with efforts to stop out-of-control gun violence in the Windy City.  We wish him luck.  In other regime news, the CIA says that ‘100 agents and their families have become victims of the so-called ‘Havana Syndrome,’ what appears to be microwave or sonic attacks directed at buildings and their occupants or at individuals singled out for such attacks.  To our knowledge, no one has figured out what- exactly- is going on or how it’s being done.  We hope the government gets this under control and responds in kind- 100 times over.
  81. 2021 Thursday M: Political News I– U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, always sucking on that lemon, says she is going to forge ahead with her ‘January 06, 2021 Select Committee’ with just her best bud, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large district, and maybe Rep. Adam “Kiss Ass” Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district, as the ONLY ‘Republicans’ on the panel seeing as how House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, pulled the rest of his appointees following lemon-sucking Nancy booting two of his picks the day before.   Leader McCarthy called Pelosi’s ‘committee’ a ‘sham committee’ and says that the Republicans will create their own January 06, 2021 ‘select’ House committee and will seek the TRUTH.  “Mumbles” Pelosi says she doesn’t give a flying you-know-what.
  82. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Regarding “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘select committee,’ Rep. Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district, says that the decrepit old House speaker is content to go it alone without any Republicans.  She claims it’s ‘deadly serious, that it’s about the Constitution, that it’s about finding the truth for the American people when everyone understands that this is the witch hunt of witch hunts and that past generations of patriotic American lawmakers from all parties are rolling around in their graves with this foul dingbat destroying the fabled U.S. House of Representatives.  Shame, Nancy, shame.
  83. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Former Detroit Police James Craig made it official late yesterday: he is running to boot the incompetent political hack Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of Michigan out into the street.  Where can we send you money, Chief Craig?   Elsewhere, Rep. Beth Van Duyne, R-TX 24th congressional district, says that the ‘Democrat challenging her can’t even show up to do her own job.’  Speaking of the fugitive Texas Democrats hiding in the nation’s capital as the slave chasers’ breath down their trail, incredibly unphotogenic loser Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke and his fund-raising group have sent $600,000 to his colleagues so as to keep them living in the style to which, they have become accustomed.  Good for you, Beto, good for you.  Loser.   Finally, some Texas counties are refusing to comply with Governor Gregg Abbott’s order to detain illegal aliens that fall into law enforcement’s hands.
  84. 2021 Thursday P: Political News IV– A new Gallup- poll says that race relations in the United States are at their lowest ebb since 2001.  Go figure.  The Democratic Party uses race to drive wages between all Americans.  Next, the Pentagon is restoring five advisory boards after purging them of Trump loyalists.  What is this?  The frigging Soviet Union?  Son-of-a-bitch!  Moving on, Pro-Death Democrats are trying to engineer an end to the Hyde Amendment.  However, Republicans are pushing back as WHY should American taxpayer dollars be used to fund abortions, not just here in our godforsaken country but across the entire flipping planet?   Speaking of Pro-Death movement, Mississippi is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to toss out the landmark abortion ruling, Roe v. Wade.
  85. 2021 Thursday Q: Economic News– Things are not looking good for the Biden regime as the weekly jobs report does not look all that good.  Last week, a whopping 419,000 people filed for first-time jobless benefits as the U.S. economy continues to struggle. 
  86. 2021 Thursday R: Moron News I– Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser quickly removed a CUBA LIBRE mural all the while protecting a Black Lives Matter communist mural in her city.  Mayor “Bow-Wow” Bowser is our MORON OF THE DAY.  Thank you for showing us exactly who you are: a socialist hack.   In other Moron News, Bruce Springsteen and bestie Barack Hussein Obama are releasing a coauthored book in October.  Wow.  How many is it for Barack now?  Seven, eight, nine books about his favorite topic, himself?
  87. 2021 Thursday S: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– The ‘Great White Hope’ (to run against President Donald J. Trump in 2020- according to the Democrats) Michael Avenatti pled ‘NOT GUILTY’ to charges of wire fraud in California.   Elsewhere, the city of Minneapolis is weighing whether or not to get rid of its police department and go in a different direction such as having healthcare workers answer urgent calls from citizens suffering crime.  If the city council should approve this stupidity, it will go on the ballot in November and the leftists trashing the city will vote yay or nay.  This is crazy and none of us will ever visit Minneapolis-St. Paul ever again.
  88. 2021 Thursday T: Big Tech News– The GOP is fighting to push BIG TECH to subsidize broadband across the entire country.  Meanwhile, in a lawsuit filed against Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube, President Donald J. Trump said Section 230 is unconstitutional in that it allows these scumbags to run amok censoring whomever they like as though they have greater power than do constitutional governments.  We are moving to Gettr and to other much fairer social media sites which leads us to the next tidbit of news: Twitter is doing better than expected with ad revenues; however, more and more Americans are leaving them to hopefully wither and die on the vine.
  89. 2021 Thursday U: California State News– Pacific Gas & Electric announced it’s going to bury 10,000 miles of power lines underground so as to prohibit wildfires from starting or from getting out of control.  This should have been done long ago.  Meanwhile, Larry Elder has qualified to be on the ballot in September when the citizens of the Golden State boot Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom out on his butt.  Mr. Elder has become the frontrunner.   Most of the chef-authors here in the Golden State like Mr. Elder and believe he will make a phenomenal governor although there will be horrendous gridlock until we can get more Republicans into the state Assembly and Senate in November 2022.  One thing is for certain: with “Nazi” Newsom gone, things will infinitely improve as Mr. Elder is no Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Thank God.
  90. 2022 Friday:  Folks, stick around to uncover the truth along with each of us.  We all know the ‘truth is out there’ and when it comes to ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden, the truth swirls around us like a Chi-Com shit storm.  They said President Trump was in the pay of Russian thug Vladimir Putin when in fact, it’s Joe Biden and his entire corrupt family that is in the pay of not only the Russians but the Chi-Coms and the Mexican cartels.  IF anyone is stupid enough to believe that the Biden crime family is not receiving a cut on every illegal alien crossing the border into the U.S., you must be insane.  What other reason that that (1) the Dems believe they are going to hold power forever because of the illegals and (2) the Biden Family is making a killing off each one who crosses the border.  This is insidious and it must stop and in November, we will stop it.  Let me know what you think- Chef E.C. McCardle.

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