223. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, AUGUST 11, 2022

If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise. The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out. Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.

  51. 2019 Sunday:  The Chi-Coms in Beijing are tearing their hair out as the ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong enter their 10th straight weekend.  None of this would be occurring if the communists on the mainland would observe the agreement, they signed with Great Britain to allow a transition of 50 years or so for the mainland to absorb the colony in its entirety.  Is anyone surprised that communists NEVER keep their word?
  52. 2020 Tuesday: Folks, when it comes to Kamala Harris, California Democratic senator, it is NOT who you know but who you blow (ask Willie Brown, former SF mayor and speaker of the California State Assembly).  She has used her wiles to achieve every political position and now, she is Joe Biden’s vice-presidential nominee.  It is also fascinating to note that like Barack Hussein Obama, she ain’t down for the struggle, since dad comes from a Jamaican family with a slave-owning history and mom comes from India.  There you go.  If we, were you, Joe, we would sleep with one eye open from this point onward?  
  53. 2020 Tuesday A: Meanwhile, in Seattle, Washington, SPD Police Chief Carmen Best announces her resignation, effective September 02.  She is leaving because the Seattle City Council agreed to slash the SPD in half and to lay off one hundred officers or more in a once-beautiful city that now has become plagued by leftwing lunatics.  We are sad to see you go, chief!  Elsewhere, riots break out in Beirut a day after the Lebanese prime minister and cabinet resigned due to the alleged Hezbollah-linked massive explosion in the port a week ago today.  Thousands of Lebanese are calling for lopping off the head of the ‘snake,’ Hezbollah criminal boss, Hassan Nasrallah.  Go to it, folks, go to it. 
  54. 2020 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Horseshoe Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 20,185,153 confirmed cases, UP by 227,115 cases, 738,800 confirmed deaths, UP by 5,911 deaths, and 12,450,681 confirmed recoveries, UP by 292,606 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,224,867 confirmed cases, UP by 65,127 new cases, 166,456 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,338 new deaths, and 2,623,403 confirmed recoveries, UP by 111,801 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.
  55. 2020 Tuesday C: 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: 574,411 confirmed cases, 10,468 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,638 confirmed cases, thirty-four confirmed deaths, and 1,586 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,647 confirmed cases, 1,697 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let us take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 422,003 confirmed number of cases, 32,774 confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries (It is interesting to note that between this week and last week, they readjusted the number of deaths DOWN).  Wake up, Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo!  Give us the honest numbers your malodourous piece of cesspit filth, especially of the senior citizens you have killed.  People are going to sue YOU.  Shame on you.

[xiv]  
  58. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 316,875 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 87,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xx]        
  62. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt AND Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.393 per gallon, $3.017 in Florida, $4.095 in Hawaii, and $3.878 in Washington state. [xxi]    Let us look at one other location- North Carolina: $2.931.  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- Northern Macedonia: $5.194 per U.S. Gallon.[xxii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,630,008,130,917 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxiii]  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 Ireland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg with $288 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.
  63. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 141 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 47th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $533,303,378.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,724,395,892.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,497,274.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,497,419. [xxiv]  (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.  (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).[xxv]
  64. 2021 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea says that the United States is failing to improve relations between the two countries.  Meanwhile, the Taliban conquer their eighth provincial capital in Afghanistan.  Many believe that Kabul will implode within three months.  Joe Biden’s mouthpiece, Jen “Circle Back” Psaki, says that Joe ‘does not believe the collapse of Afghanistan is inevitable’ yet it will happen because of the way regime leader Biden conducted the pull-out.  Elsewhere, for some unknown reason, the U.S. State Department is sending $50 million to totalitarian Myanmar ostensibly to help around 700,000 people address COVID-19 concerns.  Why aren’t the Chi-Coms helping their fellow thugs?
  65. 2021 Wednesday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The COVID-19 Nazis are at it again: YouTube has suspended the account of Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, over the bold senator’s recent criticisms of mask and vaccine mandates.  Speaking of mandates, drooling Joe Biden says (or his earpiece says) that HE will overrule like God on High bans on mask wearing in public schools.  Go for it, Joe, go for it.  Next, the Pentagon says that ‘most troops will respond positively to being compelled to get Chi-Vi vaccines.’  Moving on, the FDA is seeking clearance to mandate a third Chi-Vi vaccine injection for transplant patients.
  66. 2021 Wednesday I: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke led tens of thousands of Wisconsinites in demanding an audit of the 2020 Presidential and national elections.  Across the nation, more people are standing up demanding that their state’s 2020 Election results undergo a forensic audit.  At Sioux City, South Dakota, as Mike Lindell and his patriotic colleagues were producing ream after ream after ream of evidence, he discovered live on air that a federal judge was going to allow the Dominion Voting Systems multiple lawsuits to proceed against the pillow magnate and his allies.  It is clear from listening to the two days so far that the 2020 Elections a cabal of rat-eating Chi-Com scum, Democratic-Socialists, and their obsequious RINO allies manipulated the elections to their desire if not actively reversed the results.  The time is coming, and it is coming soon when all of this will find its way into the courts.  The Department of Homeland Security is warning local police department to keep an eye out for election deniers.
  67. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden News I– Flipflopping from yesterday, slobbering old Joe Biden supports New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s resignation over his obsessive grabbing, fondling, and kissing of unwilling women and men.  Joe, they will be coming for YOU next, you old Cho-Mo.  (Speaking of “Killer” Cuomo, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, calls for the arrest and prosecution of the devious governor once he is out of office.  In other Cuomo news, his ex, Sandra Lee, feels betrayed that the groper took credit for granting homosexual marriage rights in the Empire State.  Apparently, she twisted him by the gonads to do this.
  68. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– The U.S. Senate passed the massive $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill that will further impoverish the United States while stuffing massive amounts of cash into the pockets of Democrats, their sycophant RINO allies, and labor unions while everyone else will suffer.   Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, blasted the Democrats’ reckless ‘tax and spend’ policies.  He ripped into the scurrilous Democrats moments before the passage of the $1.3 trillion infrastructure bill of which ONLY seven percent is ‘infrastructure.’  The rest is free pork to leftwing locales, liberal politicians, and of course the omnipresent Chi-Coms.  (The Republicans are telling the Democrats to ‘go it alone’ on raising the debt ceiling).  However, the Senate passed a GOP-led amendment that prohibits government from using federal funds to promote Critical (Criminal) Race Theory in government and in education.  Unfortunately, the Democrats can always remove or negate the amendment later like they almost always do when it comes to the horror of abortion.   Finally, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, voted against the ‘infrastructure bill.’
  69. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– Rep. Jim Banks, R-IN 3rd congressional district, endorsed Ohio GOP Senate candidate and author J.D. Vance in the race to replace retiring U.S. Senator Rob Portman.   In other political news, former U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos says she will NOT seek the governorship of Michigan in 2022.  In other news, the speaker of the Texas state house signed arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats who are holding up progress.  Meanwhile, longtime Rep. Ron Kind, D-WI 3rd congressional district, says he will not seek re-election.  He has served the citizens of his district since 1997. 
  70. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III– A gunowners rights group is fighting for the right to open carry firearms at the Minnesota State Fair.  Speaking of Second Amendment rights, President Donald J. Trump is congratulating Governor Mike Parson, R-MO, for pardoning the gun-wielding couple who defended their home in last year’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests.  Leftwing trash brazenly targeted Mark and Patricia McCloskey in their front yard.  The couple stood by armed to the teeth while the mob seethed about them in the street threatening to murder them, rape Patricia McCloskey, kill the family pets, and to burn their home down in the private community.
  71. 2021 Wednesday N: Political News IV– Sandy “The Fly” Cortez and her Squad-backed group are hailing cop killers.  What is wrong with these leftist skanks?  Strip these hateful skanks of their protection squads and let them fend for themselves.
  72. 2021 Wednesday O: California State News– Oakland, California, city officials are calling on Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom to declare a state of emergency over rising violent crime rates across the city.  These people are Democrats!
  73. 2021 Wednesday P: Texas State News– Texas counties have won court orders blocking Governor Greg Abbott’s mask ban mandates.  They want masks.  Governor Abbott also fired a shot across the bow of the tranny movement by comparing gender transformation surgeries for children to be child abuse.
  74. 2021 Wednesday Q: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3585 what with a $7 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 08, 12, 21, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 89,125 winning tickets, the highest winners were 14 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,064 apiece.    Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #871 with a jackpot of $241 million up for grabs: 12, 18, 20, 29, 30, and Powerball 16.  Out of 92,051 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but no Powerball for a prize of $4,4772,553.  The winning ticket was sold at a 7-Eleven in Temecula, CA 92592.
  75. 2021 Wednesday R: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– In his hometown of Akron, Ohio, heavyweight boxer Michael “Dynamite” Dokes dies at age 54, one day after his birthday.  Over the course of his pro career, he held numerous titles and amassed a record of 61 fights, 53 wins (33 KOs), 6 losses, and 2 draws.
  76. 2021 Wednesday S: The Wrap-Up– We learned today that the Biden regime is begging OPEC and associated nations to increase oil production so gasoline prices within the United States will drop.  Folks, didn’t this stumblebum bozo clamp down on virtually every fossil fuel production project that he could within the United States so he could usher in a brave new era of solar panels and wind energy?  Whether we produce our own oil supplies or import them, we are still burning the same amount of oil.  If we produce it, we are energy independent and if we import it and rely on those sources, we sure as hell are not.  Friends, this is frigging insane and the sooner the courts begin hearing the election fraud cases on merit, the sooner we might decapitate this faux regime.  We are Americans, we are free people, and we are not going to put up with this bullshit.  NOT threatening any violence upon anyone, just saying.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  77. 2022 Thursday: The next three months are going to be a dangerous time for the American people as the closer Election Day draws near, the more desperate the Biden regime and its Joestapo thugs will become.  They thought sending the Joestapo down to Mar-a-Lago was going to be the magic bullet, yet, the bullet had the opposite effect, people are growing angrier by the minute.  As a former Democrat, I KNOW Democrats, many Democrats in fact, and they are telling me that this ‘ain’t good, Fritz, it ain’t good.’  People are wary of what is happening to our country and whether one likes Donald Trump, or they do not, most can agree on one thing: thanks to him, we are now 100-percent aware as to the existence of the Deep State and most everyone will do everything possible to DESTROY IT.  We elect our leaders, and the bureaucrats are obligated to follow their directions.  If they don’t like it, they can frigging quit.  It is not up to scum such as James Clapper, that fat pig, John Brennan, that deviant POS James Comey, and the rest of the inbred political hacks scattered throughout government to topple elected leaders.  If you ever wondered about what happened to John Fitzgerald Kennedy, all one need do is revisit his tragic demise.  The FBI finds a patsy like Lee Harvey Oswald, send him out to do the deed and then have another indebted patsy like Jack Ruby rub him out.  Ditto with James Earl Ray and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and ditto with Sirhan B. Sirhan and Bobby Kennedy.  It has NEVER been clearer than it is now.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.  

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE 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:

Today’s album is the next studio album by Beach Boy, Brian Wilson, his second collaboration with the Disney Corporation- “In the Key of Disney”- which came out on October 25, 2011.  Disney was NOT yet WOKE like they would be a decade later which is why this album makes it into our presentation.  Brian ‘reimagines’ the Disney movie classics of the day in a way in which, only he can.  You have remakes of many tunes from various feature animated films whether it be “The Lion King,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Toy Story,” and loads of others well before everything became transgender, gay, lesbo, homo, you name it, all the devious, sick shit Disney now stands for.  Alas, it is what it is, we hope you seek this one out wherever it is you shop for the absolute best in music and give it a listen.  Perhaps, you might like it.  Enjoy.

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022

2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus. Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated. We knew something was wrong with these vaccines. It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House…

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 91

EVERYONE’S FAVORITE GERMAN CHEF: FRITZ SCHLEPENDRECHT

222. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 2022:

President Herbert Hoover; Supreme Court Associate Justices Joseph McKenna and Ruth Bader Ginsburg; U.S. Attorneys-General Edmund J. Randolph and Joseph McKenna; U.S. Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary James Loy; U.S. Interior Secretaries Orville H. Browning and William P. Clark Jr.; U.S. Secretary of State Edmund J. Randolph; Acting U.S. Treasury Secretary Kenneth W. Dam; Michael “Dynamite” Dokes, Riddick “Big Daddy” Bowe, INXS featuring Jon Farriss, Isaac Hayes, and Jethro Tull featuring Ian Anderson:

  1. 70 Sunday: The Roman legions under the command of General Titus set the Second Temple of Jerusalem alight during the Great Jewish War.   The Romans had laid siege to Jerusalem due to a Jewish uprising and their murdering of a retreating Roman legion given ‘safe passage.’  This put in motion events that would lead to the destruction of the city, the ‘Wailing Wall’ being the only part of the city the Romans were unable to tear down.  Eventually, survivors who managed to escape the dying city would flee to Masada where the Romans would follow and destroy them.
  2. 654 Thursday: Cardinals elect Eugene I to succeed Martin I as Pope of all Christendom.  As the 75th Roman Catholic Pope, Eugene I would serve from today until June 2, 657.

  12. 1843 Thursday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, future 57th U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Joseph McKenna, Republican, is born on this date.  President William McKinley nominated him to fill the seat of Associate Justice Stephen Field, Democrat.  McKenna served from January 21, 1898, to January 05, 1925.  Prior to this, he would serve the nation as its 42nd U.S. attorney general.  In this capacity, he served under President William McKinley from March 05, 1897, to January 25, 1898.

  46. 1995 Thursday: Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were charged with eleven counts in the Oklahoma City bombing.  McVeigh was convicted of murder and underwent execution whereas Nichols was convicted of conspiracy and involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to life in prison.  Elsewhere, Norma McCorvey, “Jane Roe” of the 1973 Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion announced she had jointed the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue.  God bless you, Ms. McCorvey, the guilt that propelled you to do this must have been horrendous.

[iv]
  53. 2013 Saturday: U.S. President Barack Obama announces a series of NSA reforms aimed at minimizing criticism over the NSA’s electronic spying program.  Meanwhile, in Shandon, California, the former 44th U.S. Interior Secretary William P.

  55. 2015 Monday: Google announces its restructure with Alphabet as a holding company and YouTube, Android, and Chrome as subsidiaries.  Yet, nothing changes as Google still collaborates closely with its bosses in Beijing, communist China.
  56. 2016 Wednesday: Candidate Donald J. Trump slams the ‘dishonest news media’ for misinterpreting his comments on how a ‘President Hillary Clinton will abolish the Second Amendment rights of all Americans.’  Sounds like the truth to everyone with half-a-mind or more; let us see who wins in November…
  57. 2017 Thursday: U.S. President Donald J. Trump announces that opioid addiction in the country now is a national emergency.  It has been for quite a while thanks to the People’s Republic of China continuing to ship fentanyl and other opiates into the United States as a reverse opium war of sorts.  People, time to start pushing the Chin back.  Meanwhile, as the #MeToo Movement continues to grind on, a sobbing Taylor Swift announces that deejay David Mueller groped her in Denver, Colorado.  Uh, okay…

Committee on Human Rights receives word that the Chi-Coms have one million Uighurs- at least!- in concentration camps in western China where they provide slave labor to American sports team making gear and other paraphernalia while being indoctrinated with ‘how great Xi Jinping and Maoism are’ while being forced to surrender their religious beliefs.  Yet, American sports stars look the other way, folks, look the other way…
  59. 2019 Saturday: In Bucharest, Romania, anti-government protests break out that lead to at least four hundred citizens being injured.  Meanwhile, in a San Francisco court, Monsanto is hammered with a massive payout of $289 million to gardener Dewayne Johnson who contracted cancer from using the weed killer Round-Up.  [v] Elsewhere, police find financier Jeffrey Epstein dead in his jail cell, apparently from a self-inflicted hanging.  No one knows anything…
  60. 2020 Monday: The Chi-Coms today sanctioned 11 U.S. politicians or business heads, all of them Republicans or with organizations promoting democracy, seemingly in a feeble attempt at ‘punishing America’ for punishing them over their misdeeds in Hong Kong and elsewhere as well as for giving the world the Chinese Bat Plague.  Speaking of the Wuhan Flu, here are today’s statistics:  
  61. 2020 Monday A: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- here are today’s Chi-Com Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 19,936,547 confirmed cases, +202,119, 732,467 confirmed deaths, +3,855, and 12,144,510 confirmed recoveries, +142,973.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 5,159,740 confirmed cases, UP by 38,647 new cases, 165,118 confirmed deaths, UP by 477 new deaths, and 2,511,602 confirmed recoveries, UP by 13,023 new recoveries.   
  62. 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: 561,911 confirmed cases, 10,359 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 3,498 confirmed cases, thirty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,548 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 63,445 confirmed cases, 1,695 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, will not share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  63. 2020 Monday C: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,791.44, UP 257.96 points (+1.30%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,968.36, DOWN 42.63 points (-0.39%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,360.47, UP 9.19 points (+0.27%).  Currently, GOLD is at $2,039.00 per troy oz., DOWN -0.70 (-0.03%), SILVER is at $29.36 per troy oz., UP 0.094 (0.32%), PLATINUM $1,006.10 per troy oz. UP +3.40 (+0.34%), and COPPER is at $2.87 # +0.005 (+0.34%).  Light Sweet Crude Oil is 42.00, UP +0.06 (+0.14%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.96 Chi-Com yuan.  In contrast, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros.
  64. 2020 Monday D: President Trump begins a press conference in the White House Press Room when an aide interrupts him and leads him away.  Apparently, shots were fired a few blocks from the White House.  Moments later, Secret Service had it under control and the president reappeared and continued his press conference.  He answered all questions and when done, exited the room. Currently, “Pro-China Joe” Biden leads the president in national polls by 49.2-percent to the president’s 42.00-percent. 
  65. 2020 Monday E: Speaking of the Chi-Coms earlier, the MSS begins arresting pro-democracy figures across Hong Kong, including arresting media mogul Jimmy Lai and his son, among others, as the communists begin implementing their new bogus ‘security law.’  The time is coming when the United States is going to have to give the commies in Beijing a major black eye.  How a return to the Two-China Policy by which, we recognize Taiwan as a free, independent nation, and the rightful ruler of the mainland.  FREE TAIWAN!  FREE HONG KONG!  FREE TIBET!  FREE MACAU!  FREE UIGHUR MUSLIMS!  DEATH TO COMMUNISM!
  66. 2020 Monday F: A U.S. military helicopter out of Joint Base Andrews was hit by groundfire over Middleburg, Va., today, wounding one crewmember aboard.  The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing at a regional airport in Manassas.  The FBI is investigating.  Meanwhile, over the weekend in Chicago, thirty-four people are shot, three of them fatally.  Will it never f—ing end?  How long have Democrats controlled the Windy City?
  67. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 204,776,810 confirmed cases, +678,265, 4,326,877 confirmed deaths, +11,390 and 183,901,366 confirmed recoveries, +624,986.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,892,215 confirmed cases, UP 111,754 from yesterday’s reporting, 634,662 confirmed deaths, UP 864, [vi] and 29,966,321 confirmed recoveries, UP 43,480.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [vii]  
  68. 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 315,875 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 88,203 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  69. 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: 4,076,572 confirmed cases, 64,852 confirmed deaths, and 2,129,828 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,827,450 confirmed cases, 39,934 confirmed deaths, and 2,306,339 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 47,376 confirmed cases, 543 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 498,096 confirmed cases, 6,235 confirmed deaths, and 235,124 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Utah: they have 441,131 confirmed cases, 2,511 confirmed deaths, and 421,906 confirmed recoveries. [viii]    
  70. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 910,569 confirmed cases, 6,571 confirmed deaths, and 867,747 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Isle of Man, 175th location on the list: 5,658 cases of the virus, thirty-three confirmed deaths and 4,821 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  71. 2021 Tuesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,264.67, UP 162.82 points (+0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,789.09, DOWN 72.09 points (-0.49%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,436.75, UP 4.40 points (+0.099%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $68.09 per barrel, -0.19 (-0.28%).  The price of GOLD is $1,735.10 per troy oz., +3.50 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $23.42 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.06%).  The price of PLATINUM is $998.40 per troy oz, +11.40 (+1.16%) while the price of COPPER is $4.33 per pound, -0.02 (-0.46%). [x]   The price of PALLADIUM is $2,642.54 per troy oz, +1.70 (+0.06%). [xi] The price of RHODIUM is $19,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $780,000.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,589.50 per troy oz., +4.75 (+0.18%).  [xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000022.  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 20.09.     In Myanmar Kyat, one greenback equals 1,642.00 and in Namibian Dollar, a buck equal 14.80 and in Nepalese Rupee, one dollar equals 119.07 of theirs. [xiii]        
  72. 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 $4.392 per gallon, $3.018 in Florida, $4.093 in Hawaii, and $3.875 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Montana: $3.292.  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- Zimbabwe: $5.113 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,626,623,832,014 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 the United Kingdom, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland with $318 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.
  73. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 140 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be running the show down on the U.S.-Mexico border as well as her 46th day since her singular visit to the border.  Here are the daily figures for the border calamity as compiled by One America News.  First, here is the cost for just this day: $532,913,238.  Second, here is the cost of caring for the border invaders for the year so far: $242,703,429,068.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders for the year so far: 2,486,774.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative estimate for the numbers of illegal aliens lurking within the United States as we speak: 36,486,823. [xvii]  (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.  (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).
  74. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– House Republicans are demanding that the Department of Homeland Security explain why it has become so easy to swarm across the U.S.-Mexico border into the United States.  Illegal aliens are overwhelming the country and DHS is standing idly by.  This is becoming an invasion.  Because of the problems along the border, Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has offered articles of impeachment for U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
  75. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– North Korea threatened today to begin working anew on its nuclear weapons programs and missiles because South Korea and the United States are back to holding joint military exercises.  Elsewhere, a Chi-Com court upholds a death sentence imposed upon a Canadian ‘drug trafficker’ Robert Lloyd.  Canada should take note of this outrage because as a junior participant in the fraudulent 2020 Elections in the United States via their Dominion Voting Systems machines, look at how their Beijing masters have rewarded them- death sentence for a Canadian citizen.
  76. 2021 Tuesday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci warns that ‘vaccine mandates are coming following full approval by the Food and Drug Administration of the various emergency use Chi-Vi vaccines.  (Note- Mike Lindell said at his symposium today in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, that the FDA can clear a drug for emergency use only if no other treatments of any kind exist for whatever the disease is.  This means that Democrats, RINOs, and the media assaulted President Donald J. Trump anytime he mentioned safe and cheap hydroxychloroquine, aka Plaquenil, they went berserk and tore great hunks of hair from their bald pates.  Interesting to know, Mr. Lindell, thank you).
  77. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Speaking of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci, he and the Centers for Disease Control are finding themselves slammed with multiple lawsuits over the draconian lockdowns and harsh restrictions the mercurial Dr. Fauci and his partners in crime continue forcing on the American people.  In other Chi-Vi-related news, Joe Biden says he likely does not have the power to interfere in various states’ anti-mask and anti-lockdown mandates but sure the heck is looking into it.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Voting Integrity-Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– If one does not believe that communist thugs hold power in the United States, think again.  As Mesa County, Colorado, elections clerk Tina Peters was on her way to join Mike Lindell’s 72-hour cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, today, while she was aboard Mr. Lindell’s aircraft, Colorado Secretary of State Jena Griswold, Democratic-Socialist, and a ban of flunkies raided the election offices of Mesa County.  Denied entry to see what was going on over the course of the 3-4 hours the political hacks rooted through everything like hogs, sticking their snouts into every crevice, every nook, and every cranny, they were unable to witness the events, nor were they informed as to what the storm troopers removed.  Americans must take note of these fascist tactics.
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: 2020 Election Audit– Dominion Systems is suing Newsmax for reporting that the Canadian-based company whom the AICPENDBLOG.COM alleges works for the Chi-Coms.  Mike Lindell’s three-day cyber symposium in Sioux Falls, SD, continues exposing just how devious the voting machine company appears to be.  It is going to be difficult for this corrupt company to stand stark naked in the bright light of day so the more patriotic Americans and other patriots around the world call them out, the sooner we can achieve answers and rectify and repair the damage Dominion Systems has caused the world.  Additionally, Mike Lindell and his team of cyber experts appear to have found sufficient evidence to lay the blame squarely on the Chi-Coms for conducting a massive cyber-attack on all fifty states on and around November 03, 2020.  Most Americans agree that this amounts to an act of war and when combined with the Chi-Coms’ release of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, there is much for which, the communist scumbags must answer.  We have said this before and will say it again, but the Wuhan Virus allowed them to kill two birds with one stone: first, it helped them get rid of Donald Trump via colluding with the Democrats, Trump-hating RINOs, and Dominion Voting Systems and second, it helped them crush the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement.  For this, they must pay.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Joe Biden News I– Regime leader Joe Biden claims ‘it’s up to Afghanistan to defend its own country as the Taliban overrun six provincial capitals.  Then, later in the day, the drooling moron says through his mouthpiece that ‘it’s not a foregone conclusion the Taliban is going to run the Middle Eastern country.’
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– We learned today that the National Security Administration’s inspector general is looking into allegations made by Fox News host Tucker Carlson that the NSA was ‘spying on me.’  We bet they will produce nothing and yet, the surveillance will continue.
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: Political News I– Today is Day No. 1 for Mike Lindell of My Pillow fame to hold his cyber symposium and what an opening day it was.  IF you think Joe Biden truly won the 2020 Presidential Election, well, watch the symposium and let us know what you think AFTER viewing it.  We think Joe Biden is walking on thin ice which is why the Democrats are going bat crap crazy.
  83. 2021 Tuesday P: Political News II– Prominent Pro-Life group Susan B. Anthony List made its first political endorsement for the 2022 Mid-Term Elections by endorsing Governor Henry McMaster, R-SC.  Elsewhere, the Texas Supreme Court has upheld the arrest warrants for the fugitive Democrats issued by Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX.  In other news, Eli Bremer, R-CO, is throwing his hat into the ring for a U.S. Senate seat in 2022.  Next, the Wyoming GOP has censured wayward Rep. Liz Cheney yet again.  Finally, Governor Tony Evers, DS-WI, has vetoed several election integrities bills.
  84. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News III– New York politicians are still angry at soon-to-be-ex-Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov and have said they may well impeach the man so he cannot run for any statewide election ever again.  Interestingly enough, when queried by reporters about Governor Cuomo’s sexual harassment woes, Joe Biden said of his close friend and confidant that ‘Governor Cuomo sets the gold standard for Democrats.’[xviii]  Whoa, Joe.  In other political news, the Atlantic magazine reports that senile U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi will ‘most likely step down shortly after the conclusion of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.’  Sure.  Of course, she will.
  85. 2021 Tuesday R: U.S. Senate News I– Early today, the Senate planned to hold the final vote on the $1.3 trillion ‘infrastructure bill.’  Later in the day- with the help of 19 Republican scumbags- the Democrats ramrod this shyster bill through.  Once they rammed this bogus piece of dog feces through Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY, trotted out the $3.5 trillion budget reconciliation bill as the next chink in the Biden regime’s chain of collapsing the United States Cloward and Piven-style.  Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO, a brave patriot immediately offered fifteen amendments to this horrendous bill.  Meanwhile, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, told Newsmax that the Dems’ ‘infrastructure bill is going to add mountains of debt atop America’s taxpayers.’
  86. 2021 Tuesday S: Business News– Small business optimism that was riding high in July has plummeted in the first 10 days of August due to vast labor shortages.
  87. 2021 Tuesday T: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former U.S. Department of Agriculture official Richard Homan received a sentence of 180 days home confinement for his part in a bribery scandal.
  88. 2021 Tuesday U: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump expressed concern that the Biden regime’s U.S. Department of Justice will bury the Durham report should it become available for release.
  89. 2021 Tuesday V: New York State News– It appears that the headhunters have succeeded.  A morose, near-tears Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov announced that effective in 14 days, he will be vacating the office of governor of the Empire State.
  90. 2021 Tuesday W: U.S. Military News– The United States and twenty allied nations kick off the 2021 Southeast Asian Cooperation and Training, aka SEACAT, joint military exercises.
  91. 2021 Tuesday X: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1684 what with a $208 million jackpot on the line: 29, 45, 50, 59, 62, and Mega 12.  Out of 89,761 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $5,638 apiece.
  92. 2021 Tuesday Y: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Oregon University volleyball coaches said today that they have the right to discipline their players over their political views.  Welcome BIG BROTHER.
  93. 2021 Tuesday Z: The Wrap-Up– It is better late than never, folks.  Last night, our computer systems were under continuous attack, either from the Chi-Coms or from our own government.  A miniscule blogging site such as the AICPENDBLOG.COM one would think would be small fish for BIG BROTHER apparatchiks going after the bigger guys but we guess NO ONE is too small for persecution and punishment.  Well, we say, “F**K them, we will continue fighting back because the American people are a free people, and we will never surrender to oppressive left-wing trash.  It is what it is, folks.  Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.
  94. 2022 Wednesday: There are so many other things of which to speak but what happened at Mar-a-Lago takes the cake.  The American people are clearly unhappy over the heavy-handedness exercised by the Justice Department and its Joestapo.  Imagine, the Joestapo arriving at your home, searching through everything, carting things away for inspection later?  All I can surmise is that the Biden regime wants to plant evidence on Donald Trump.  What will they ‘find,’ Ashley Biden’s diary, the one in which, she laments the gloomy fact that daddy, Joe, used to shower with her when she was a prepubescent girl?  We can put nothing past these people.  What I do know is this: people are angry, not just Republicans but Democrats, too.  Going down this path is un-American, one our nation can ill-afford yet the Biden regime seems to want to go down it.  I will say this: for every one of us they strike down, 10 more will spring up in their place which is why EVERYONE must rush out and begin buying firearms, ammo, and everything else they can because gun and ammo confiscation is coming soon.  Not going to be like Australia, New Zealand, or anywhere else for that matter, I can assure you.  Let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht. 
  95. 2022 Wednesday A: Friends, if you think November’s elections are going to be fair, think again: yesterday, the Chi-Coms identified 30 cases of a potentially lethal novel virus.  Sounds like we will soon see a new plague sweeping around the world just in time to thwart the election cycle this November, one I suspect will target the vaccinated.  We knew something was wrong with these vaccines.  It is, after all, a pandemic of the vaccinated, look at the feeble fool in the White House: BINGO!  I also fear that the millions of military-aged males deposited around the country will take to the streets just in time to keep people sequestered in their homes out of fear.  These people could very well become the Joestapo’s new Brown Shirts division, one with which to instill terror into the American people.  You heard it here first- we can put nothing past these people anymore.  Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

IF one lives long enough, musical moments from the past finally are released in the way in which, they should have been.  Thus, we have “The Smile Sessions” by the Beach Boys, released on Halloween, 2011.  Many believe “Smile”- had it been released back in 1967 to counter the Beatles’ epic “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” the Rolling Stones’ “Their Satanic Majesties’ Request,” the Small Faces’ “Ogden’s Nut Gone Flake,” the Kinks’ “Something Else” and “Face to Face,” as well as other epic psychedelic masterpieces, it would have been right there with them, most likely at the top.  The other Beach Boys- could not get behind Brian’s masterpiece, the one he created with lyricist Van Dyke Parks, and thus, it was chopped up, neutered, and made blasé which was a loss for the world.  Now, however, we have it the way in which it should have been released along with loads of added material which puts the listener smack dab in the midst of the recording process.  This is one for the ages, one we hope everyone will rush out, give a listen, and then add it to your ever-burgeoning collection of nothing but the absolute best in rock music- you can thank us later.

[xviii] The ersatz president had more to say of his good friend, Governor Cuomo: “He’s done a hell of a job” and it’s “so sad to see him go.”  One groper to another.  In other Cuomo-related news, politicians such as former Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey and Rep. Jeff Van Drew, R-NJ 2nd congressional district, are demanding that investigations into the crumbling governor and unnecessary nursing home deaths for which, he bears SOLE RESPONSIBILITY continue.

  60. 2020 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- these are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that will not stop giving, statistics for today: 19,425,393 confirmed cases, UP 264,587, 722,066 confirmed deaths, UP 5,983, and 11,773,122 confirmed recoveries, UP 167,998.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 5,054,067 confirmed cases, UP 52,386 new cases, 163,575 confirmed deaths, UP 1,156, and 2,477,554 confirmed recoveries, UP 22,976. 
  61. 2020 Saturday A: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 545,787 confirmed cases, 10,189 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 3,115 confirmed cases, thirty-one confirmed deaths, and 1,467 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 61,587 confirmed cases, 1,672 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee will not list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at the numbers of another state we have not looked at lately, Ohio, the “Buckeye State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 99,969 while the number of deaths is 3,668.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Mike DeWine, a RINO, is little more than a hardcore political hack.
  62. 2020 Saturday B: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day- Let us look at the second-highest nation infected with the Wuhan Virus, Brazil:  The South American nation has 3,012,412 cases of Xi Jinping’s gift to the world what with 100,477 deaths, and 2,068,394 recoveries.   India is the third highest nation infected with this dastardly, lab-engineered virus what with 2,152,020 confirmed cases, 43,453 confirmed deaths, and 1,479,804 confirmed recoveries.  Russia comes in fourth what with 882,347 confirmed cases, 14,854 confirmed deaths, and 690,207 confirmed recoveries.  Now, let us look at the Chi-Coms, the place where this needless disaster began: they come in 30th among nations with 84,590 confirmed cases, 4,634 confirmed deaths, and 79,123 confirmed recoveries (although our sources in Hong Kong and Macau tell us they are 10-times higher than reported which sounds about right for the main communist hellhole on the planet.  Shame on them).
  63. 2020 Saturday C: Sadly, without any help from the Democrats, President Trump takes it upon himself to improve the lot of the American people, people whose lives have been thrown into freefall thanks to the Chinese Virus Crisis, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, by signing an executive order that will do the following: (1) $400 in enhanced unemployment benefits throughout the remainder of the year; (2) A payroll ‘holiday’ tax that will cut payroll taxes for every American making under $100,000 per year; (3) A continued moratorium on evictions; and (4) deferring student loan repayments until next year.  The president is asking the states to cover 25-percent of the costs while the federal government will cover the other 75-percent.  Democrats threaten to take him to court over these actions.  WHY?  They want bailouts for Blue States- like California- that is so far in the RED it risks imploding in upon itself because CalPERS needs billions of dollars to keep it solvent while Sacramento gives money and benefits- including free health care to ILLEGAL ALIENS.  Let California DIE.  We say this even though our blog site is based there.  It is time for change.
  64. 2020 Saturday D: The people of Beirut, Lebanon, continue protesting their government’s corruption in allowing their port to blow up on Tuesday thanks to more than 2,700 tons of ammonium nitrate stored in the port.  Some even call for the lynching of Hezbollah boss, Hassan Nasrallah, a POS terrorist if one ever existed.  In some cases, police use live ammunition on the protesters as violence gets out of control.  Meanwhile, Portland, Oregon, sees yet another night of mayhem in the streets, its 70th but who is counting, right) while Mayor Ted Wheeler scolds Antifa for misbehaving.  Folks do what the police in Beirut are doing, the moment you see some POS rioter raise his arm to throw an incendiary device, shoot them.  It works and has always worked in the past.  Has the United States lost its nerve?
  65. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 203,441,157 confirmed cases, +463,096, 4,307,387 confirmed deaths, +7,747 and 182,742,086 confirmed recoveries, +428,841.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 36,543,338 confirmed cases, UP 24,390 from yesterday’s reporting, 633,116 confirmed deaths, UP 129,[ix] and 29,859,062 confirmed recoveries, UP 7,259.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[x]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 314,674 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed 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 89,404 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

  68. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 900,482 confirmed cases, 6,542 confirmed deaths, and 863,583 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Saint Lucia, 173rd country on the list: 5,837 cases of the virus, 90 confirmed deaths and 5,452 confirmed recoveries.[xii]

  71. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– When one is the ‘border czar,’ there is never a day off.  Today marks Day No. 138 for “Kooky Kamala” Harris to oversee the nightmare along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 44 since her sole visit to the slowest portion of the border, the El Paso Sector.  Wow.  Here are the figures for the illegal alien tidal wave overrunning our country as presented by One America News: first, here is the cost for just this day: $576,230,464.  Imagine all the good that money could do for the American people.  Next, here is the cost for this year of caring for the millions of illegal aliens who have swept into the United States: $240,576,282,624.  Moving on, here are the numbers for border invaders for 2021: 2,465,714.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of border-jumping illegal aliens lurking within our country: 36,465,712. (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).  In other shocking border news, we learn that the Border Patrol is releasing 1,000 illegal aliens per day into the city of McAllen, Texas.  This is absolutely dreadful.  Even worse, we learned that since the beginning of the year, CBP has released 7,000 COVID-19-infected illegal aliens into the city with 1,500 dumped there just this past week- and the Biden regime wants us to wear flipping masks and get vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu. 
  72. : Political News I– The ‘infrastructure bill’ in the U.S. Senate has stalled over no clear mechanism with which to fund the $1.3 trillion (or $1.7 trillion depending upon where one sees it) monstrosity.  Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that ‘Washington, D.C. is using COVID-19 to concentrate power in a very few hands and to undermine federalism by diminishing state’s rights.’  Next, the POS Mark Zuckerberg dumped $12 million on a ‘nonprofit Democratic Party consulting firm.’   Finally, Carlos Del Toro survived confirmation as the next secretary of the U.S. Navy.
  73. 2021 Sunday H: California State News– Since all GOP candidates are doing well in the Golden State, the California GOP is declining to endorse any of the candidates seeking to replace highly unpopular Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom who is clinging to power by a thread.  One of the Republicans- former San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer lit up sniveling Governor Newsom for crying that the recall is some sort of ‘GOP attempt at grabbing his seat.’  Mayor Faulconer said, “NO- it’s your performance” which has been extremely horrid.
  74. 2022 Monday: As everyone knows, I once was a Democrat until I switched parties and became a Republican.  I would like to say something to the RINOs corrupting the party, losers such as “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney and her horrible father, Dick, among others.  What is wrong with you people?  Dick should have been handed over to the Hague for war crimes because that man set the entire Iraq fiasco in motion, one that killed and maimed Americans that did not have to suffer those outcomes.  Just because Donald Trump put the Bush Family in its place is not reason enough to become anti-Trump which means, “ANTI-AMERICAN.”  You are doing it all over, instigating war with Russia, war with China, war with Iran.  At some point it must stop and the only way to achieve that outcome is to send every single one of you soul-sucking war vampires out of office and into disgrace.  Going to be a great week, let me know what you think- Chef Fritz Schlependrecht.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0916 a 16” x 20” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Sycamore Road.”  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:

Alan Jardine released his first- and only at the time of this presentation- solo album, “A Postcard from California” on June 19, 2010.  Jardine is one of the unsung Beach Boys greats and one would have thought that the remaining Beach Boys such as Mike Love and Bruce Johnston would have sought to continue the association but no, after the death of Carl Love, Love forced him out of the band which was truly peculiar.  Perhaps it’s because Love only wanted to play the original tunes in the original ways in which, they were recorded instead of continuing the evolution of the songs in the way Carl demanded.  Jardine, however, did not throw in the towel but carried on with his own band performing the tunes as he saw them and adding new ones (well, some unreleased ones) on this, his first solo album.  Jardine performs many of the instruments as well as the vocals but also had numerous guests with which to create an amazing album.  Almost everyone- including some Beach Boys- are here which makes for a glorious audio experience.  Even Glenn Campbell is here WHO was a Beach Boy for a brief period when Brian Wilson could no longer continue on the road.  Check it out- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

213. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, AUGUST 01, 2022

2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts? Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go. Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.

  59. 2007 Wednesday: The eight-lane Interstate 35W Bridge, a major Minneapolis artery, collapsed into the Mississippi River during even rush hour, killing 13 people.  Elsewhere, the Bombay Stock Exchange Sensex goes down a whopping 615 points in a single day, the third such worst collapse in the history of stock markets.
  60. 2008 Friday: Unemployment in the United States hits 5.7-percent, its highest rate in four years.  You know it must be an election year.
  61. 2009 Saturday: The thugs ruling Venezuela order the closure of at least 34 privately-owned radio stations.  It’s all for the ‘revolution’ don’t you know?  No- it’s what flipping communist do.  First thing that goes is freedom of speech.  Meanwhile, in Punjab, Pakistan, following claims that Christians desecrated a Holy Quran, jihadists murder six Christians. 
  62. 2010 Sunday: Following Palestinian thugs firing rockets into Israel last night, the Israelis launch airstrikes against Hamas thugs in the Gaza Strip.  Elsewhere, Venezuelan thug dictator Hugo Chavez- claiming the Colombians are going to invade his country to liberate people- threatens to send Venezuelan military forces to their shared border.  Colombia responds that in so many words, he’s full of fecal matter.
  63. 2011 Monday: Muslims are getting mighty uppity in Xinjiang Province, China, what with rioting which has led to at least 11 deaths including five jihadists and another 20-to-30 injured.  The Chi-Coms are preparing to crack down on the scum.  Meanwhile, North Korea continues playing the United States for chumps by saying they are willing to engage in the Six-Party Talks yet again.  Fine people, exceptionally fine people, the lying North Koreans.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives holds another vote and this time is able to raise the DEBT LIMIT CEILING so as to avert the 2011 Debt Limit Ceiling Crisis.  The Democrats want to spend and spend and spend…so what else is new?  
  64. 2012 Wednesday: Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak announces that in 30 days, ALL ultra-orthodox Jewish men will become available for the nation’s military draft.  Of course, the ultra-orthodox are unhappy but when it comes to defending one’s country, you do what you must do.
  65. 2013 Thursday: Texas Senator Ted Cruz, Republican, urged grassroots activists to join him in his fight to defund the president’s signature law, the Affordable Care Act…they donated millions to the cause.   Meanwhile, defying Barack Obama and the United States, Vladimir Putin granted Edward Snowden temporary asylum, allowing the National Security Agency leaker to slip out of the Moscow airport where he had been holed up for weeks.
  66. 2014 Friday: Days after imposing additional sanctions against Russia, U.S. President Barack Obama contacts Russian President Vladimir Putin to express concern about Russia’s continuing support of Ukrainian separatists.  Meanwhile, a medical examiner ruled that a New York City police officer’s chokehold caused the death of Eric Garner, whose videotaped arrest, and final pleas of “I can’t breathe!” had sparked outrage.  What happened to Mr. Garner was not right; however, as impartial we must point out that from the moment police tried to take Garner into custody, he resisted arrest and continued resisting arrest until he died.  Do not fight the cops when they want to arrest you.
  67. 2015 Saturday: After Puerto Rican Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla warned creditors the previous June that if its debt did not undergo restructuring to keep the commonwealth afloat, Puerto Rico fails to make a $58 billion payment on bonds issued by the Public Finance Corporation.  In other news, Palestinian riffraff have been causing trouble for the Israelis who after the scumbags murder an innocent wee babe in his crib by setting him on fire leads Israeli Defense Forces to take the fight to the human garbage.  At least two Palestinian 17-year-olds are killed in the resulting fray.
  68. 2016 Monday:  In the autonomous district of Yamalo-Nenets, Siberia, an outbreak of anthrax kills one person, sickens another eight, and kills at least 2,300 reindeer.  The authorities blame it on…climate change…what else?  Elsewhere, after receiving a request from the ‘government’ in Libya to take out ISIS thugs in Sirte, NATO warplanes arrive on scene, drops loads of bombs, and according to the government kills a whole lotta scumbags.
  69. 2017 Tuesday: The U.S. Senate confirms the Honorable Christopher A. Wray the next head of the FBI, thus ending the era of the corrupt James Comey.  Elsewhere, in Herat, Afghanistan, the so-called ‘religion of peace’- Islam- strikes again when a bomb blast at the Jawadia Shia Mosque kills at least 30 and injures and maims countless others.  Got to love the religion!  Next, famed keyboardist with the rock band, Steppenwolf- Goldy McJohn- died in Seattle, Washington, on this date from a heart attack; he was 72 years old.
  70. 2018 Wednesday: The remains of dozens of presumed casualties of the Korean War were returned to U.S. soil; in an emotional ceremony in Hawaii, military members carried 55 boxes draped with American flags off two military transport planes.  Meanwhile, in Paris, angry ticket agents at the Eiffel Tower go on strike leaving tens of thousands of tourists perplexed as to WTF to do?
  71. 2019 Thursday: Keyboardist with the Kinks[xiv] from 1979 to the early 1990s- Ian Gibbons- died at his home in England from bladder cancer; he was only 67.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate confirms Kelly Craft as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.  Elsewhere, due to Chi-Com intransigence, President Donald J. Trump announces via a tweet that starting September 1, 2019, the U.S. is going to slap a 10-percent tariff on $300 billion of Chi-Com exports.  Good.  The SOBs have been raping the United States for a long, long time.  Time to make those bloodsuckers pay.
  72. 2020 Saturday: Florida is bracing today for incoming Hurricane Isaias.  Meanwhile, Democrats and Republicans are working hard to craft a new Chinese Virus relief package.  The Democrats want to continue giving unemployed Americans $600 atop their state unemployment checks while the GOP wants to slash the additional funding to $200 atop the weekly state unemployment checks.  The GOP wants workers to return to work while the Democrats seek to keep them at home, dependent upon federal government until well after the November elections.  Democrats seek to topple the U.S. economy as only then can uber-leftists force Marxism down the throats of the American people.  Finally, BOTH Democrats and Republicans slam President Donald J. Trump for seeking to remove U.S. troops from Germany and redeploy them farther east to countries such as Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia, as well as bring some of them home.  Very few NATO member countries fail to pay their annual 2-percent dues.   As for the most prosperous nation in Western Europe and a linchpin of the alliance: Germany wants U.S. troops to protect them from Russia, yet Angela Merkel makes energy deals with Vladimir Putin for natural gas pipelines coming directly into her country.  This is bulls**t! 
  73. 2020 Saturday A: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- Here are today’s COVID-19 Wuhan Virus, aka the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, aka the Chinese Flu, the Kung Flu, you know, the Chinese “gift” that won’t stop giving, statistics for today: 17,594,541 confirmed cases, UP 273,147, 679,439 confirmed deaths, UP 5,617, and 10,333,166 confirmed recoveries, UP 178,140.  In the United States, here are today’s numbers: 4,686,214 confirmed cases, UP 61,034 new cases, 156,370 confirmed deaths, UP 1,124, and 2,293,228 confirmed recoveries, UP 30,254. 
  74. 2020 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states where the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 500,130 confirmed cases, 9,224 confirmed deaths, but thanks to Gov. Gavin Newsom being little more than a festering POS, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  In Hawaii, here are the stats: 2,197 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,243 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the too-far-left-to-save-state-of-Washington, here are the stats: 55,803 confirmed cases, 1,564 confirmed deaths, and like California’s worthless governor, Gov. Jay Inslee won’t list the number of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at the numbers of another state we haven’t looked at lately, Pennsylvania, the “Keystone State,” one of the worst states for out-of-control liberal politics.  The number of cases in the state is 112,936 while the number of deaths is 13,588.  No mention of the number of confirmed recoveries.  Such a shame but the one thing we do know is that Governor Tom Wolf is little more than a hardcore political hack.
  75. 2021 Sunday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole- 198,968,742 confirmed cases, +460,657, 4,239,563 confirmed deaths, +7,115 and 179,593,456 confirmed recoveries, +342,991.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,767,126 confirmed cases, UP 21,102 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,380 confirmed deaths, UP 70, [i] and 29,673,290 confirmed recoveries, UP 7,173.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[ii]  
  76. 2021 Sunday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,938 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 93,140 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  77. 2021 Sunday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,965,396 confirmed cases, 64,423 confirmed deaths, and 2,100,971 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,636,066 confirmed cases, 39,079 confirmed deaths, and 2,089,018 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 42,862 confirmed cases, 537 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 474,835 confirmed cases, 6,168 confirmed deaths, and 230,729 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Missouri: they have 681,518 confirmed cases, 10,289 confirmed deaths, and 577,236 confirmed recoveries. [iii]    
  78. 2021 Sunday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 875,801 confirmed cases, 6,477 confirmed deaths, and 850,950 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Gambia, 166th country on the list: 7,709 cases of the virus, 212 confirmed deaths and 6,600 confirmed recoveries. [iv]     
  79. 2021 Sunday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,935.47, DOWN 149.06 points (-0.42%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,672.68, DOWN 105.59 points (-0.71%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,395.26, DOWN 23.89 points (-0.54%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $73.81 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.19%).  The price of GOLD is $1,812.50 per troy oz., -0.10 (-0.01%) while the price of SILVER is $25.55 per troy ounce, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,045.90 per troy oz, -2.50 (-0.24%) while the price of COPPER is $4.48 per pound, 0.00 (-0.04%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,660.50 per troy oz, +14.52 (+0.55%).[vi] The price of RHODIUM is $18,400.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).

[vii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.     In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,458.00 and in Jamaican Dollar, a buck equal 154.26 and in Japanese Yen, one dollar equals 109.70 of theirs. [viii]        
  80. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.373 per gallon, $2.971 in Florida, $4.084 in Hawaii, and $3.854 in Washington state. [ix]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.816.  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- Jamaica: $4.711 per U.S. Gallon.[x]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,591,181,135,271 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xi]  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 United Arab Emirates, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Mexico 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.
  81. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By our count, today is Day No. 131 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the horrendous humanitarian disaster along the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.  It’s also her 37th day since her one and only visit to the southern border and to have done absolutely NOTHING about it.   When we say ‘nothing,’ we mean, “NOTHING.”  It is time she laid down her duties- not that she ever picked them up- and returned home to spend more time with her family.  Adios.  Customs and Border Protection officials report that in the month of June, the authorities caught 190,000 illegals which means many, many more were able to have beaten the dragnet.   Speaking of CBP, former acting commissioner of the organization- Mark Morgan- calls out the hypocrisy of both Joe Biden and the Democrats over their stoppage of the border wall construction- ‘it would be cheaper to complete the wall rather than care for all of these frigging illegal aliens.’
  82. 2021 Sunday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Speaking of the horrendous ongoing mess along the southern border, here are the numbers reported by One America News for this disgusting disaster we have no choice but to watch.  It affects all of us, it harms all of us, and it will eat away at the guts of the country until everything implodes.  First, here is the COST THIS DAY of caring for all the frigging illegal aliens: $583,016,384.   Second, here is the COST THIS YEAR: $232,911,831,040.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal aliens estimated to have crossed the border this year: 2,387,159.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegals believed to be within the United States: 36,387,160.  (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- if you have read our blog site for any length of time, then you know we estimated as far back as 2009 when we first began being the voice of the culinary worker and professional chef that back then, we believed the number to be between 35-to-50 million whereas now, we suspect the honest-to-God number is closer to 75-100 million which means we have the seeds of our own demise residing within our country.  DEPORT THEM NOW no matter the difficulty or the cost.
  83. 2021 Sunday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– While sending Cubans back to their communist hellhole, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security says that at least 100,000 Haitians will be provided work permits so they can work (and vote) in the U.S. without fear.  Elsewhere, seizures of fentanyl along the southern border are up by as much as 4,000-percent.  CBP officials report the drug comes from labs in Mexico supplied by the Chi-Coms and that it is used in cocaine, heroin, and in pill presses to create fake oxycontin and other pharmaceutical prescribed drugs being used by Americans.  Deaths are going way up once again now that President Donald J. Trump is not in the White House.
  84. 2021 Sunday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Former Iranian thug President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad says that while HE was president, the government lied for EIGHT years about its countless human rights abuses and violations.  Mahmoud, everyone knows that.  Iranian leaders are ALL liars.  Elsewhere, the government of Myanmar has extended its ‘state of emergency’ with the leader of the coup proclaimed the prime minister.  Meanwhile, the war in Afghanistan continues to rage what with the cities of Herat, Lashkar Gah, and Kandahar being attacked and overwhelmed in some places.  In the western portion of the country, the Taliban has attacked a United Nations compound.
  85. 2021 Sunday J:  COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– As drooling Joe Biden continues trying to discern ways by which he can coerce the American people into taking the Kung Flu vaccines, Governor Kim Reynolds, R-IA, says ‘nope’ to offering $100 incentives to entice her citizens into getting the shots.  (Note- we suspect they could jack it up to $1,000 per jab and people would still say, “HELL, NO, we are not getting this duck dreck”).  Meanwhile, CNN ‘health expert’ John Berman puts the blame for the ongoing ‘pandemic’ onto the shoulders of the unvaccinated while totally ignoring the wide-open borders and the hundreds of thousands of infected illegals pouring across into the United States.  Good try, Mr. Berman, but it’s all bullshit.  This dimwit also says that Joe Biden declared victory ‘way too early.’ 
  86. 2021 Sunday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Two countries- Thailand and Indonesia- are pushing away from using Chi-Com vaccines, finding fault with how they are manufactured and the myriad side effects they cause the recipients.  (Note- NO one should use any vaccine from either the Chi-Coms or the Russians.  Both are f**ked up countries).   Elsewhere, a new poll says that only 45-percent of the American people are concerned about getting the Chi-Vi while 13-percent- hardcore liberals- wet their beds at night in terror of contracting it.   What’s more, Xi Jinping Bat Flu deaths and hospitalizations are at record lows.  Yes, the Delta variant of the Chi-Com flu is much more contagious- like the common cold- but much less lethal.  Also let’s not forget that about one week ago today, the Dems were beginning to drive up the fears of the Lambda variant but then abruptly yanked that one back for use at a later date.  Delta comes from India while Lambda comes from Peru. 
  87. 2021 Sunday L: Health and Medical Alerts– Fox News host Judge Janine Pirro says that the government is setting up for future COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions- especially going into 2022 so the Dems and their RINO sycophants can replicate the elections theft they perfected in conjunction with the Chi-Coms in 2020.  Judge Pirro points out that the LEFT is the science deniers.  She also asked what the ‘endgame’ in this horrible scheme is? In other Chi-Vi news, the Centers for Disease Control is paying the National Football League’s Alumni Association $3.5 million to get retired players to coerce current players into taking the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccines even though they have no desire to do it.  Next, in two San Francisco, California, hospitals, 233 breakthrough cases among fully vaccinated staff have occurred with at least TWO of them hospitalized.  Finally, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, R, is blasting health officials for exaggerating COVID-19’s danger via their frightening hyperbole.
  88. 2021 Sunday M: Political News I– The ‘mask mandate’ imposed by nonagenarian U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is not only unpopular with most Republicans, but  also becoming increasingly unpopular with many Democrats as well- so says the polls.  Speaking of mask mandates, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel “Bow-Wow” Bowser like many other Democrats- including “Mumbles” Pelosi and her corpulent sidekick, Rep. Jerrold “Tub-of-Goo” Nadler, DS-NY 10th CD, all have been captured wandering around sans masks.  Next, Democrats are fretting over the fact that millions of Americans could soon be homeless once the moratorium on evictions vanishes but here’s the deal: most of the $45 billion earmarked for helping renters and mortgage holders keep current remains unused which means it’s resting peacefully in the pockets of Democrat and RINO politicians.   
  89. 2021 Sunday N: Political News II– We have been long hoping for this but it sounds like former Alaska GOP Governor Sarah Palin could return to politics and take a go at highly unpopular current Senator Lisa Murkowski in 2022.  We hope to God she runs and beats this Republican-in-name-only.  She would be an amazing addition to the U.S. Senate.  Meanwhile, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd CD, says that ‘IF he gets the gavel in November 2022, he will launch investigations into drooling Joe Biden and extremely corrupt House Speaker “Mumbles” Pelosi.   Speaking of moronic Democrats, the police chief of Charleston, South Carolina, Luther Reynolds, says that the Democrats’ Defund the Police scheme is blowing up in their faces.
  90. 2021 Sunday O: Business News– Amazon has been slammed with a $886 million fine over a recent data law breach.  Meanwhile, British-based bank Monzo Bank Ltd finds itself embroiled in a money-laundering mess.
  91. 2022 Monday: Friends, let me float a theory by you: could the war in Ukraine be a false flag operation of sorts?  Joe Biden’s regime is on its last legs and the goons still have two years to go.  Still, the world is accepting skyrocketing gas prices, energy shortages, food shortages, Russian and communist Chinese hegemony, and a concerted effort to topple prosperous Western democracies all in the name of saving a despotic regime in Eastern Europe.  I suspect that once liberal lunatics such as Joe f**king Biden seize power as his good buddy, Justin Trudeau has already done and others follow, the New World Order will be imposed on the global population with the Chi-Coms at the top.  This is evil, coordinated, and propaganda/fake news supported, and I fear if they find a way to force everyone to remain at home another election cycle, it will become a fait accompli.  Although Ukraine is being destroyed, it will be rebuilt once the world is starved into submission, the people driven into poverty, and freeze in the winters and broil in the summers, it will be too late.  Tell me what you think- Chef Hector.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album by Beach Boys’ genius, Brian Wilson, is his first seasonal release: “What I Really Want for Christmas,” an album that came out on October 18, 2005.  The Beach Boys had a glorious Christmas album so it would make sense that Brian would do something similar and thus, here it is.  Besides doing some of his classic Beach Boys tunes such as “Little St. Nick” and “The Man with All the Toys,” he delivers some amazing covers of other, classic Yuletide tunes.  As always, he has a superb cast of supporting musicians with which to deliver a delightful holiday package.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure around the holidays.  You will be extremely glad you did- we guarantee it.

  39. 1960 Sunday: Founder of the Nation of Islam, Elijah Muhammad, calls for a ‘black state.’[iii].   (Note- wasn’t the nation of Liberia created to be the first ‘black state?’).  The sad thing is, Rev.

  65. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor.  Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  66. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women.  He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him. [viii]

Trump’s approval rate for job performance at 50-percent.  Meanwhile, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, age 87, left the hospital today following a revisal of a bile duct stint.  God bless you, madam, please get well soon.  Finally, speculation alights on Sen. Kamala Harris, D-CA, as the potential VP pick of Joe Biden.  In order for Ms. Harris to get her senatorial gig, she had an affair with former Assembly Speaker Willie Brown so if she gets the VP nod, with whom did she trade (allegedly) trade favors to get the number two spot on the ballot?
  71. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 198,497,926 confirmed cases, +525,446, 4,232,079 confirmed deaths, +8,931 and 179,252,925 confirmed recoveries, +368,306.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,743,144 confirmed cases, UP 65,394 from yesterday’s reporting, 629,310 confirmed deaths, UP 380, [ix] and 29,666,084 confirmed recoveries, UP 16,303.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,868 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 93,210 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[xvi]        
  76. 2021 Saturday 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 $4.367 per gallon, $2.972 in Florida, $4.092 in Hawaii, and $3.850 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.919.  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- Curacao: $4.693 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,587,535,043,912 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xix]  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 Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 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.
  77.  2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 130 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s ‘Booty Call Mattress,’ aka the squealing swamp hog of the Everglades, aka the yowling midnight lemur to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 36th day since her one and only visit to the border and again to have done nothing about it.  Okay, One American News always presents the costs of illegal immigration for the American People.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegals pouring across the southern border: $635,102,752.  Absolutely shocking.  Horrible we know.  Next, here is the cost for this year: $231,328,045,120.  Imagine all this money going to care for ILLEGAL ALIENS!  Next, here are the numbers estimated to have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,376,624.  Finally, here are the CONSERVATIVE estimates as to how many illegal aliens are roaming the land: 36,376,662.  (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).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an army of storm troopers the Democrats can deploy against the rest of us (which is why ammunition is flying off the shelves right now).
  78. 2021 Saturday G: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, has written a letter to House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, urging her NOT to include mass amnesty for tens of millions of illegal aliens lurking within the country.  She won’t listen.  
  79. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– The Biden regime is threatening a new round of lockdowns and restrictions if more Americans don’t rush out and get vaccinated against the Chi-Vi.   Last week, there was mention of the NEW Lambda variant out of Peru being worse than the Delta variant and then within a day, all talk of the Lambda variant (SARS-CoV-2) vanished out of the window, and it was back to pounding the Delta drums.   Amazing how the libs continue guiding all talk on the Chi-Vi and how everyone must rush out and get vaccinated.  Funny that there are more infections among VACCINATED Americans than among unvaccinated.  Something ain’t right here, folks.   Add to that the fact that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci says that mRNA vaccines for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu could be approved for widespread use by next month.  Pushing, pushing, pushing!
  80. 2021 Saturday I: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3582 what with a $12 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner.  Here are the numbers: 16, 18, 30, 32, 38, and Mega 05.  Out of 97,148 winning tickets, the highest winners were 12 people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,413 apiece.   Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #868 with a jackpot of $199 million up for grabs: 01, 21, 22, 34, 47, and Powerball 04.  Out of 83,515 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $44,999.
  81. 2022 Sunday: IF things do not change over the next two election cycles, we may need to become friendly with the Chi-Coms.  I remember when the country was committed to being the best whereas now, we are ripping ourselves apart, thanks in large part to Chi-Com, Russian, Iranian, and other of our enemies’ machinations.  Race is the Achilles heel of the United States and if our enemies continue noodling away at the seams, at some point, the nation is going to explode.  Add to that the fact that we cannot trust our elected leaders who all seem to be in the pay of Beijing and one can see the old maxim is true: the capitalists will sell the communists the rope with which the communists hang the capitalists.  Personally, I think it’s too late and my family and I are considering relocating to Ireland as a safe haven from the looming storm.  What is the point in remaining in country that is ripping itself to shreds?  Let me know what you all think.  Thanks- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0908 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Central Coast.”  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 the Beach Boys went through starts and fits back in the 1960s over Brian Wilson’s “Smile” project, an abbreviated form “Smiley Smile” hit record store shelves on September 16, 1967 (see Monday, May 23, 2022) and since it was nowhere near the project envisioned by composer Brian Wilson, it was considered a flop.  Well, years later, Brian Wilson said, “Screw it,” and relaunched the entire project with a series of live performances and a live album culled from the performance.  “Brian Wilson Presents Smile” came out on September 28, 2004, and is a mind-blowing, joyous project to behold.  NO ONE in his, her, or its right mind questions the fact that Brian Wilson is not an innovative, musical genius, certainly not anyone with sufficient gray matter, that’s for sure.  We hope you will seek this album out and that you will add it to your growing collection of AICPENDBLOG.COM-recommended music- we think you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

John Lewis lies in state outside the Rotunda on Capitol Hill so mourners can file past sans closer exposure inside the Capitol.  He becomes the first black American to have such an honor.  God bless and good journey to the other side, Rep. Lewis.

[vi]  
  54. 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 308,909 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 95,169 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[vii]    
  56. 2021 Tuesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 864,912 confirmed cases, 6,461 confirmed deaths, and 844,601 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Nicaragua, 161st country on the list: 9,470 cases of the virus, 95 confirmed deaths and 4,225 confirmed recoveries.

  58. 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 dropped to $4.331 per gallon, $2.973 in Florida, $4.079 in Hawaii, and $3.838 in Washington state. [xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Idaho: $3.750.  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- Cuba: $4.542 per U.S. Gallon. [xiv]   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,572,345,327,101 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xv]  oward 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 Bermuda, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Netherlands with $70 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.
  59. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, today is Day No. 126 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the border and NOT to be ‘on the job.’  Add to this the fact that today is Day No. 32 since her one and only visit to the southern border and you can see why so many Americans are dismayed at her having this extremely important job.  It is high time she vacate the post and possibly the ‘vice presidency’ which she is unqualified to hold.  Next, here are the stats regarding the costs and the numbers of the illegal alien invasion as presented by One America News: first, the cost just this day of caring for the illegals is $536,859,584.  Second, here is the cost this year for caring for the millions of illegals invading the U.S.: $227,386,228,736.  Third, here are the numbers of illegals estimated to have crossed into the United States just this year: 2,330,526.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE of illegals on the lam within the United States: 36,330,528.  Now, the American Institute of Culinary Politics disagrees with OAN on the last number as 12 years ago when the AICPENDBLOG.COM first began doing business, we estimated the numbers of illegals living in the U.S. as between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million illegal aliens all of whom must be scooped up, imprisoned, and then deported. 
  60. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials are warning illegal alien invaders NOT to attempt the desert crossing during summer months.  Let ‘em try and dump the skeletons back over the fence on the Mexican side.  Meanwhile, Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, says that a block grant will allow border states get their hands on money dedicated to building the wall.
  61. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Now that the Chi-Coms are lord and master of Hong Kong, the first person charged under the new freedom-stifling law- 24-year-old Leon Tong Ying-kit- has been convicted of terrorism and secession which means the former restaurant chef could face life in prison in Xinjiang Province’s slave labor camps.  We expect this means the pro-democracy freedom fighter will be locked up in mainland China.  Next, North and South Korea have restored the hotline between the two countries.  Meanwhile, Russia has now blocked imprisoned Alexei Navalny’s website citing extremism and propaganda as the reasons as to WHY Vladimir Putin ordered it closed.
  62. 2021 Tuesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Cuba is blaming the United States for a Molotov cocktail attack on its embassy in Paris, France.  Uh, okay.  Speaking of communist Cuba, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, said that ‘Joe Biden’s actions on Cuba are meaningless.’  Absolutely true.  Meanwhile, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Benet is set to visit the White House next week to talk with the earpiece in Joe Biden’s ear.  Should be a fascinating conversation.  Elsewhere, news hit today that exposed Iran’s classified plans to wage cyberwarfare on the United States.  Time to start dropping some bombs on these scumbags.  (Note- will a WOKE U.S. military do this or are they more worried about WHITE SUPREMACISM?) 
  63. 2021 Tuesday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– We learn today that at least 30-percent of illegal aliens in ICE custody are refusing the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Either they take it- by the Democrats own reasoning on this topic- or we immediately deport them back to whence the f**k they came.  As for Americans, the reasons they cite for not rushing out to get vaccinated are ‘personal choice,’ ‘antibodies,’ and ‘vaccine side effects.’  In other Chi-Vi news, former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams says that the ‘honor system’ regarding masks has ‘failed.’ 
  64. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control has reversed itself on the wearing of masks yet again by saying that everyone- vaccinated, unvaccinated, or a space alien- must wear masks indoors.  Uh, okay. 
  65. 2021 Tuesday L: Health and Medical Alerts– As drug prices continue skyrocketing, Republican senators are urging U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra to allow Americans to import cheaper drugs from Canada as they were during President Donald J. Trump’s time in office.  This should make sense to EVERYONE so WTF Secretary Becerra?  In other fascinating news, the deeply troubled Empire State dictator- Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov, says that ‘health authorities are going door to door to see if people have been vaccinated for the Yellow Fever 2021 and if they haven’t, they are going to stuff you into a car, take you to the vaccination site, and get you vaccinated whether you want it or not.’  Sounds a lot like kidnapping to us…
  66. 2021 Tuesday M: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– Following the rampant election fraud that occurred on Election Day 2020 and in the subsequent hours and days, numerous states- approximately one-third of them- are tightening up their election laws so as to prevent the Democrats from stealing future elections.  About time.
  67. 2021 Tuesday N: 2020 Election Audit– Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton- recently endorsed for re-election over RINO George P. Bush by President Donald J. Trump- says he ‘won’t back down in calling for a forensic audit of Texas 2020 Election results.’  God bless you, Mr. AG.  Meanwhile, Arizona’s senate has issued subpoenas demanding that Maricopa County hand over its routers for inspection.  
  68. 2021 Tuesday O: Joe Biden News I– Outrage continues to grow over Joe Biden slamming a female reporter yesterday- NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell- as being a ‘pain in the neck’ for asking fundamental questions about the Chi-Com Virus vaccines.  What’s up with that, Joe?
  69. : Political News I– A recent poll of Republican primary voters in Wyoming says that 70-percent of those voters have a NEGATIVE view of RINO Rep. Liz Cheney.  Meanwhile, as the Democrats and two RINO flunkies hold the show trial hearings on the events of January 06, 2021, a group of House Republicans are planning on conducting their own hearings into WHY more than 400 people arrested on that fateful day are still being held in the Joestapo D.C. prison, why they are routinely being mistreated, humiliated, and in some instances, even tortured seven months later.  Why isn’t the American Civil Liberties Union fighting to free these people?
  70. 2021 Tuesday Q: Political News II– A new poll says that 6-in-10 conservative Republicans believe that President Donald J. Trump should continue to have a massive voice in GOP politics.  Meanwhile, former Fox 10 news reporter Kari Lake is running to displace Copper State RINO Governor Doug Ducey in November 2022.  Ducey needs to go.  In other news, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, says she is going to ‘sue Nancy Pelosi.’  Go for it, Marjorie, go for it.  Rep. Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that ‘all eyes should be on Nancy Pelosi as she bears full responsibility for Capitol Hill security.’  She is, after all, known as the ‘mayor of Capitol Hill’…
  71. 2021 Thursday R: Miscellaneous News I– A new report says that 35-percent of black Americans report mistreatment while shopping.
  72. 2021 Thursday S: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News I– President Donald J. Trump said that ‘Dems have made once-great cities paradises for criminals.’  Elsewhere, imprisoned in a conservatorship from hell, pop singer Britney Spears with the help of a new lawyer is trying to oust her father as head of her conservatorship.  We hope you succeed.  In other crime news, following former U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer’s mugging yesterday in Oakland, California, law enforcement is offering a reward for information on the scumbag or scumbags who assaulted the aged senator while she was traipsing through a park.  (Note- we are curious as to whether former Senator Boxer will now become a conservative?  Do you know what they say?  Conservatives are former liberals who have been mugged).  
  73. 2021 Thursday T: Crime and Punishment News / Law Enforcement News II– Elsewhere, Robert Aaron Long- the 22-year-old perp behind the Massage Parlors Massacre last year in Atlanta, Georgia- pled guilty today to FOUR of the murders.  Next, a Florida babysitter, Terry McKirchy, has been indicted on a murder charge 37-years later after the baby he shook nearly four decades ago, died in 2019.  Prosecutors have been building their case since then and have charged the failed sitter with a murder charge.   Finally, former U.S. Air Force intelligence analyst- 33-year-old Daniel Hale- who helped his bosses find drone targets in Afghanistan- just got 44 months in a federal slammer for leaking classified information on the drone program to a journalist.
  74. 2021 Thursday U: Special Election News– Democrats and RINOs alike are wetting their pants with joy- the Era of Donald J. Trump is over!  Blast the trumpets from the rooftops, Republican Jake Ellzey, R-TX 6th congressional district, beat Trump-endorsed Susan Wright who was running to replace her late husband, Ron.  It is said with this single victory, Donald J. Trump is no more so stop the sham investigation into the events of January 06, 2021, stop with all the sobbing and whining, and let out the political prisoners languishing in the Joestapo Washington, D.C. federal gulag.  (Note- having seen Mr. Ellzey on various news channels, he is a pro-Trump guy so WTF?  Still, if it makes them excited, go for it!)
  75. 2021 Thursday V: Milestones and Personal Interest Stories– Legendary pilot Dale “Snort” Snodgrass has shocked the aviation community with his untimely passing in a crash in Idaho.  The famed pilot flew more hours in an F-4 Tomcat- most of them out of Naval Air Station Oceana and lost his life when the private plane in which he was flying crashed this past Saturday.  The flyer was 72 years old.
  76. 2021 Thursday W: U.S. House Of Representatives News I– In the House today at the January 06, 2021 Stalinist show trial, i.e. Round No. 2 of the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATION in the history of the United States, four Capitol Hill law enforcement officers including tatted-up freak Officer Michael Fanone- sat before the friendly inquisitors blubbering and crying about how fearful they were that the ‘Trump supporters’ were going to tear them ‘limb from limb’ and how their kids and women would be wailing and crying over their deaths.  One officer said he got a ‘split lip’ which to us is vastly different than having one’s arms, legs, and head torn off- such is the modern-day generation of Americans.  In our view, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, should be in the hotseat answering questions as to WHY SHE didn’t act on intelligence and approve President Donald J. Trump’s offer of large numbers of National Guard troops?  (Note- the Democrats are having a hell of time in that they cannot convince enough Americans that what they saw on TV on the Sixth of January was something other than a carefully orchestrated DEMOCRAT PARTY show.  The Dems stirred this up and with plenty of FBI informants and agents in the crowd to urge and encourage hundreds of Americans to enter into the Capitol, it was easy to entrap the poor souls currently languishing in the D.C. slammer being abused at the hands of the Joestapo).    
  77. 2021 Thursday X: U.S. Senate News I– Three Republican senators are appealing to the United States Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade, the jaded ruling that liberals have used to murder children at all stages of gestation in the womb and also on the birthing table.  This evil crap must stop.  Elsewhere, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says that ending the student loan debt pause (due to COVID-19) will ‘harm the recovering U.S. economy.’  (Note- hey, Chuck- how does allowing students to continue refraining from paying their debt is somehow helpful to the U.S. economy?  What a flipping dimwit).
  78. 2021 Thursday Y: Federal and State Court News– The courts are forcing Indiana and Maryland to continue participating in the federal unemployment insurance program so that people can continue staying at home (while illegal aliens are taking their jobs.  We saw a story online last night that said illegals are jumping at the chance to get Chi-Vi vaccinations (they aren’t) so they can help the booming U.S. economy recover.  Oh, really?)
  79. 2021 Tuesday Z: Sports News I– American gymnast Simone Biles withdrew from team gymnastics citing injuries to her pride.  Likewise, fellow American athlete Naomi Osaka said that the pressure was a ‘bit much’ as she went down in flames.
  80. 2021 Tuesday AA: Observation of the Day– Friends, having watched the first full day of ‘testimony’ by four, clearly partisan Capitol Hill Police Department hacks (who most likely will be getting BIG BUMPS in pay, rank, perhaps even homes, schools for their kids, and additional vacation benefits) and their opposites on the ‘select committee’ all snivel and cry, all I could think about is that I’m glad these were not the politicians leading us in World War II.  Imagine if they were and we had television around the globe, imagine Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Tojo watching them snivel and cry about a similar event, they would each think to themselves, ‘we have these pansies licked.’  Chairman Xi Jinping, Russian President Vladimir Putin, and the Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei watching the spectacle of blubbering, wailing politicians, and our Capitol police.  Imagine that.  Friends, it won’t be too far off before the Chi-Coms begin hitting the beaches of Taiwan, before the Russians reassemble the old Soviet Union, and the Iranians extend their reach to the Mediterranean Sea if these losers are the people charged with protecting us.  I am ashamed of having had to watch this and I feel sullied that this crap is occurring in our country.  We stand on the cusp of a new civil war and what’s more, I believe we can win it.  These scumbags have no clue as to what they are awakening and I, my friends, remain a Democrat.  Of Madam Pelosi’s show trial, I think Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, summed it all up when he said: ‘it’s political theater.’  So true, so absolutely true.  -Chef Cheryl “Cherry” La Tigre.
  81. 2021 Tuesday BB: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1680 what with a $153 million jackpot on the line: 02, 35, 36, 54, 64, and Mega 11.  Out of 76, 602 winning tickets in the Golden State, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $9,106 apiece.
  82. 2022 Wednesday: As the “Voice of Freedom from Occupied Los Angeles,” let me share with you how Los Angelinos feel about the worthless POS who serves as our district attorney.  George Gascon- facing an imminently successful recall- is among the worst, perhaps worse than Chesa Boudin in San Francisco was.  Instead of enforcing the law, he warns citizens of his community to dress down, not to wear anything even remotely expensive lest thieves, murderers, and rapists follow them to their homes and accost them.  Many hope that the violence befalling us will soon befall his family and him in the worst of ways because this is the only thing leftwing communists such as he understands.  We fully expect his recall to be successful and once it is, the people of the city will launch all manner of punitive actions on the criminals infesting our streets that will make ‘Purge’ movies look tame.  Time for Gascon to experience what the rest of us experience every day only in spades.  Let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0904 a 40” x 60” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Saguaros and Teddy Bears.”  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:

Original Beach Boy, David Marks, put out his own album on April 12, 2003, “Something Funny Going On.”  This is a challenging album to find which is why we suggest going to Discogs or AllMusic to see if you can locate it.  Many believe that Marks is a musician who belongs on the periphery which sadly, is incorrect.  He joined the Beach Boys when Al Jardine left the group to attend dental school as he lived across the street from the Wilson Brothers and was as musical as they were.  When Al came back, Marks left and over the intervening years played with numerous musical groups until eventually returning to the Beach Boys after the turn of the century and following the deaths of both Dennis and Carl Wilson.  This is an excellent album, one that Marks performs most of the instruments on.  We hope you will seek it out and see if it’s a worthy addition to your never-ending, ever-growing musical collection.  Please, seek it out wherever you shop for the best in music- you will be glad you did.

  47. 2006 Monday: Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah brags on Al-Jazeera TV how he discussed kidnapping two Israeli soldiers with Lebanese politicians before the POS carried out the attack.  A hit squad coming for you sometime soon- crucify him.  Meanwhile, after being on a hunger strike for 16 days, Iraqi authorities drag deposed dictator Saddam Hussein down to the hospital and force feed him with a feeding tube.

  50. 2009 Friday: Trying to tamp down a national uproar over race, President Barack Hussein Obama acknowledged using unfortunate words in declaring that Cambridge, Mass., police had “acted stupidly” in arresting black scholar Henry Louis “Skip” Gates Jr. adding he’d invited the Harvard professor and Sgt. James Crowley, the arresting officer, for “a beer here in the White House,” the so-called “Beer Summit.”  This would become the norm for the Obama administration as he inserted himself into every racial incident over the course of his eight years in office, of which there would be many.
  51. 2010 Saturday:  Rallies to release Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian woman facing execution for adultery, occur in Paris, New York City, Ottawa, and elsewhere.  Elsewhere, the U.S. and South Korea commence carrying out military exercises with tens of thousands of troops, numerous naval vessels, and warplanes as a show of force to the North Koreans who are always talking crap.  The North wants to start something so badly

  53. 2012 Tuesday: Vice-President John Dramani Mahama becomes President of Ghana after President John Atta Mills, dies.  Elsewhere, USA Today reports the discovery of four barrels containing 248 human fetuses in the Sverdlovsk Oblast region.  An abortionist run amok.

  55. 2014 Thursday:  Arseny Yatseniuk, prime minister of Ukraine, submits his resignation in frustration over inaction of the parliament to address energy needs and military funding.  Meanwhile, a convoy carrying prisoners in northern Iraq comes under attack by jihadist thugs.  In the ensuing melee, 52 prisoners and eight Iraq government guards are killed and loads of others wounded. 
  56. 2015 Friday: After two researchers hack wirelessly into a Fiat-Chrysler automobile, 10 miles away, which enabled them to control the brakes and steering, the auto company recalls 1.4 million vehicles.  This ‘hack’ causes numerous other automakers concern that the same thing can happen to their automobiles.  Meanwhile, U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama[viii] returns to his home country of Kenya to begin a historic two-day visit.
  57. 2016 Sunday: The International Olympic Committee announces it won’t fully ban Russia for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro over repeated violations over doping.   The World Anti-Doping Agency or WADA called for a complete ban but the IOC says it will permit some Russian athletes to participate in the games.  Meanwhile, California continues to burn as the Sand Fire outside Santa Clarita, California, has doubled in size to 22,000 acres with no end in sight.  IF only Democratic leadership would maintain the forests and begin building new reservoirs to hold water, so much could be changed in the Golden State.   The Dems won’t do it.
  58. 2017 Monday: In a speech to a national Boy Scout gathering in West Virginia, President Donald J. Trump railed against his enemies and promoted his political agenda, bringing an angry reaction from some parents and former Scouts from both parties.  Oh, boo f**king hoo.  Democrats always attack their enemies, whether from the pulpits of black churches, in schools, in speeches, and everywhere else they can.  What a load of crap.
  59. 2018 Tuesday: Near Athens, Greece, swift-moving wildfires, blamed on out-of-control global warming, continue wreaking havoc across the region killing 91, injuring 104, and causing another 600 to flee into the water being rescued by boats.   Meanwhile, following a drug overdose, singer Demi Lovato[ix] finds herself in the hospital.  Elsewhere, the Syrians are down a jet after one crossed into Israeli-controlled Golan Heights and the Israeli Defense Force shot it down.  
  60. 2019 Wednesday: Senile Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III- struggling to speak and forgetting where he’s at in a sentence- reports to the U.S. Senate that ‘President Donald J. Trump was NOT cleared of obstruction of justice charges and reiterates that Russia did indeed interfere in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.’  Millions of Americans find it both shameful and personally embarrassing that the Democrats continue trotting this old fogey out to continue trying to tarnish the 45th president.  Send the old man to a rest home already.   Meanwhile, Europe is best with its hottest ever recorded temperatures causing Greta Thunberg to rush into the bunker.  In Germany, thermometers hit 104.9° F while in the Netherlands, temps hit 102.5° F which is a typical summer’s day in California.  Ah, well, we understand their anguish because we have air conditioning, and they mostly don’t.  No wonder Europeans hate America.
  61. 2020 Friday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,628,936 confirmed cases, UP by 310,939 cases, 636,262 confirmed deaths, UP by 10,410 deaths, and 8.917,141 confirmed recoveries, UP by 195,726 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,179,560 confirmed cases, UP by 79,759 new cases, 147,534 confirmed deaths, UP by 1,239 new deaths, and 1,252,170 confirmed recoveries, UP by 32,537 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them).
  62. 2020 Friday A: 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: 435,334 confirmed cases, UP 7,718, 8,186 confirmed deaths, UP by 159, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,490 confirmed cases, 26 confirmed deaths, and 1,125 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 50,009 confirmed cases, 1,482 confirmed deaths, but like California, the slope-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.
  63. 2020 Friday B: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 26,469.89, DOWN 182.44 points (-0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,363.18, DOWN 98.24 points (-0.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,215.63, DOWN 20.03 points (-0.62%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.30 per troy oz., +2.80 (+0.15%) while the price of SILVER is $22.98 per troy ounce, +0.125 (+0.55%).  The price of PLATINUM is $955.40 per troy oz, -1.00 (-0.10) while the price of COPPER is $2.89 per pound, +0.002 (+0.07%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.34 per barrel, +0.05 (+0.12%).
  64. 2020 Friday C: President Donald J. Trump signed four executive orders designed to lower drug prices for all Americans.  As things have stood for decades, Americans are screwed on health care costs because allied and other nations enjoy cheaper, more reasonable costs for their prescription drugs.  The first order would permit importation of medications from countries where the costs are more reasonable and realistic.  A nation such as Canada would be among the prime countries of export.  Another executive order removes the huge profits wholesalers enjoy- so-called middlemen- by slashing them to much more reasonable amounts.  The third order would cut the costs of insulin while the fourth would force the federal government to buy drugs for Medicare at the lower costs they are in other countries.  Now, how about allowing ALL health care providers to compete in every state as well as to offer a wider variety of plans addressing all needs of all Americans?  That would be amazing.  
  65. 2020 Friday D: Communist China orders the U.S. to close its consulate in Chengdu as retaliation for the U.S. order to them to close their spy hub in Houston.  The Chin swear they are not going to leave the Houston, Texas, consulate but they need to get their s**t and get the hell out of the country.  All U.S. personnel in communist China should come home…NOW.
  66. 2021 Saturday: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 194,410,034 confirmed cases, +57,040, 4,168,451 confirmed deaths, +11,198 and 176,469,967 confirmed recoveries, +49,184.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 35,184,261 confirmed cases, DOWN 84,993 from yesterday’s reporting, 626,713 confirmed deaths, UP 127, [x] and 29,478,173 confirmed recoveries, UP 28,950.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them. [xi]  
  67. 2021 Saturday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 308,271 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 95,807 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  68. 2021 Saturday 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: 3,903,614 confirmed cases, 64,230 confirmed deaths, and 2,088,821 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,525,341 confirmed cases, 38,670 confirmed deaths (DOWN), and 2,277,524 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 40,383 confirmed cases, 527 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 467,727 confirmed cases, 6,125 confirmed deaths, and 229,697 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., North Carolina: they have 1,031,929 confirmed cases, 13,570 confirmed deaths, and 1,001,590 confirmed recoveries. [xii]    
  69. 2021 Saturday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 859,398 confirmed cases, 6,458 confirmed deaths, and 841,769 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Aruba, 158th country on the list: 11,063 cases of the virus, 109 confirmed deaths and 11,466 confirmed recoveries.

  71. 2021 Saturday 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 $4.325 per gallon, $2.969 in Florida, $4.085 in Hawaii, and $3.834 in Washington state. [xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Delaware: $2.991.  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- Mauritius: $4.497 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,556,382,310,872 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  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.
  72. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 123 for the now-infamous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and to have visited it just one- 29 days ago.  How about that for commitment to the job?  She needs to go.  Here are today’s stats as presented by One America News[xxi] regarding the illegal alien invasion: first, the cost this day of caring for all these illegals is $582,445,632.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the world’s garbage: $224,144,146,432.  Third, here is the number of illegals who have entered the U.S. just this year- that we know of: 2,297,298.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegals living in the country as we speak: 36,297,296.  Twelve years ago, we said the numbers were around 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 75-100 million.  Round them up and deport all of them now- including the DREAMERS.
  73. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Two days before a U.S. delegation is set to arrive in communist China, the Chi-Coms slap sanctions on several Americans just to show they can do it.  Elsewhere, as more and more Americans demand the Biden regime do something to help the Cuban people, our esteemed U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken makes the surprisingly stupid statement that it appears that ‘U.S. sanctions on Cuba are not working.’  Do you think?   However, the American people plan to show support for the oppressed Cuban people as a flotilla of small vessels is departing Florida’s waters to arrive 12 miles from the Cuban coast to shoot off fireworks to show support for the Cuban people and hopefully to help some who make a bid or freedom.
  74. 2021 Saturday H: Foreign News / Overseas News II– Meanwhile, following the embarrassment the Chi-Coms inflicted on the U.S. by slapping sanctions on U.S. citizens, the Biden ‘state department’ is going to send a delegation to Russia to ‘talk nukes.’  How about talking about them with the frigging Chi-Coms?  Elsewhere, now that the United States has cut and run from Afghanistan, the U.S. and Iraq are negotiating a troop withdrawal by January 2022.  Since George W. Bush f**ked up Iraq and destabilized the Middle East, may as well allow Iran to absorb the country.
  75. 2021 Saturday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Governor John Bel Edwards, D-LA, says that EVERYONE in the state must wear masks regardless of their vaccination status.  Oh, goody.  Meanwhile, in a big win for Florida, the Centers for Disease Control tosses mask regulation on cruise ships.   Elsewhere, the Democrats who fled Texas for Washington, D.C., and who took the Chi-Vi with them say they ‘don’t feel bad about causing a super-spreader event.   That’s Democrats for you, they don’t have consciences.  Sad to say but true.  In other ‘VID news, liberals are celebrating the fact that unvaccinated conservative talk show radio host Phil Valentine- someone who questioned the efficacy and the need for a Chi-Vi vaccine- is in the hospital…with COVID-19.
  76. 2021 Saturday J: Political News I– Michigan lawmakers vote to strip Governor Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer of her dictatorial COVID-19 powers.  Good.  Now recall the skank.  Speaking of killer governors, Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, is calling on the Department of Justice to probe Joe Biden’s role in covering up Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s nursing home massacres.  Everyone wants to know this.  Sadly, the U.S. Department of Justice declines investigating massive nursing home deaths in four big Democratic states: New York, Michigan, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  Each of the governors in these states must go on trial and if convicted go to prison for the untold suffering and countless deaths they have caused.
  77. 2021 Saturday K: Political News II– A new poll shows that Joe Biden is losing major support in 85 battleground districts.  A poll claims his approval ratings still stand around 50-percent, but everyone understands that this is FAKE NEWS.  Meanwhile, never afraid to call it the way he sees it, Senator Mike Lee, R-UT, says that ‘the White House and BIG TECH are colluding to silence conservative speech.’  Tell us about it.   Moving on, former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says that the ‘infrastructure bill is biased toward Democrat-controlled cities’ meaning they are going to get the big bucks and the money-go-round will continue…unabated.  Elsewhere, U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen says that- get this, the same things were said when Barack Hussein Obama was president back in, uh, 2010, we think- ‘irreparable harm will happen to the United States if we don’t raise the debt ceiling.’  Oh, STFU already.  No wonder our country is going down the crapper.
  78. 2021 Saturday L: Political News III– Diamond and Silk- two strong black female voices- said of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci that he is the ‘new Reverend Jim Jones.’  For all you millennials, look him up.  Last year, the dynamic duo was booted from Fox News Channel for criticizing the creepy little doctor but folks, they are right on.  Right on.  First, “Phony Tony” said NO masks were needed, then he said masks, then he said two masks, then he said maybe goggles, then that one disappeared, then he said three masks and it goes on and on and on…
  79. 2021 Saturday M: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3580 what with a $11 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 01, 05, 19, 27, 40, and Mega 08.  Out of 98,557 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $32,534.  The winning ticket was sold at Kym Café in Garden Grove, CA 92843.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #866 with a jackpot of $186 million up for grabs:  01, 04, 11, 59, 67, and Powerball 10.  Out of 76,367 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $39,281 apiece.
  80. 2021 Saturday N- One Year Ago Today: As you know, we never wish negative on anyone, as you know, we are rooting for Joe Biden to wake up from his senility and to begin doing the work of the American people rather than talking crazy about white supremacism, racism, and the cops.  We would like to see the ‘Joe of Old’ and not this stooge of Xi Jinping ransacking the country.  We can find out together- Chef Charles Smithenstein.
  81. 2022 Sunday: The left continues the lie of the planet ending soon unless we give government the power of life and death over all of us to stop climate change.  Folks, back in the day- the 1970s- Democrats were doom and gloom that another ice age was coming and woe to everyone on the planet.  We live in a dynamic world, we work hard at conserving resources while generating new ones and if we kowtow to the f**king Democrats, our planet will die because once we remove all forms of CO2, we will witness all flora die and if all flora dies, so will all faunae.  These people are ignorant dimwits screaming and crying so they can attain power now and keep it.  Time to destroy every Democrat come November and in every subsequent election along with their RINO stooges.  An ass-whooping is on the way…Chef Elvin C. McCardle.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0901 a 12” x 16” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Cayucos.”  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:

As longtime fans of the Beach Boys, if there’s ONE thing that we never understood is WHY the Beach Boys did NOT release more live albums?  Back in the day, the Rolling Stones released a live album after most of their mid-1970s releases (well, it seemed that way whereas now, they have so many live albums, it’s difficult to count) whereas the Beach Boys gave us an early live album followed by “In Concert” and “Live in London.”  We have a bootleg from back in the day featuring the lineup that made “Sunflower” and “Surf’s Up,” called “Re-Surfin’ USA,” an album one can find at RZ Record albeit under a different name- “Surf’s Up in Princeton,” recorded live in New York back in 1971, albeit currently unavailable.  Still, the Beach Boys gave us “Good Timin’: Live at Knebworth, England 1980.”  This is a great album, not as good as “In Concert” because the band has reverted back to its earlier sound for the oldies but goodies.  Also, they leave off “Good Timin’” which sure the hell should have been included on this album.  There are 22 tunes here that run the gamut of the group’s career and which features the six main Beach Boys- Brian, Carl, and Dennis Wilson, Alan Jardine, Mike Love, and Bruce Johnston- together live.  We hope you will seek this album out and add it to your daily listening pleasure.  We contend you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] It would appear the Department of War would become the first victim of political correctness.

[ii] We presented another series of interconnected bands which included Free, Bad Company, Led Zeppelin, the Firm, Mott the Hoople, Ian Hunter, the Yardbirds, and a plethora of solo and group efforts beginning on Wednesday, 02-July-2014 through Sunday, 19-October-2014.  We definitely hope that you will seek this music out and consider adding it to your growing collection.

[iii] We began presenting the music of the Animals, of Eric Burdon and the Animals, of Eric Burdon, Eric Burdon and War, and War beginning on Monday, 08-June-2015 and the presentation ran through Sunday, 02-August-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider making them a part of your listening pleasure.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.

[v] We hope to share the music of Little Richard one day.  Not sure as to when, however.

[vi] Not sure when we will do the music of Judas Priest- if ever.

[vii] Not sure as to when we will do the music of America but please stay tuned.

[viii] 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.

[ix] We won’t be doing the music of this skank unless the blog site is still here in 50 years.

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

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

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

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

  70. 2020 Thursday C: Today is the 56th straight day of rioting and protests in the city of Portland, Oregon.  Mayor Ted Wheeler, Democrat, says federal law enforcement is responsible for the rioting when in truth, it’s the ambivalence of the mayor and his city council that bears full responsibility for the mayhem occurring in those once beautiful city’s streets.  The previous night, in a despicable act of virtue-signaling, the mayor went out on the streets to participate in the riots and the agitators threw garbage at him and told him to resign.  He suffered two bouts of teargassing before his security people removed him from the streets to safety.   Arrest the mayor, mow down the Antifa thugs.  Bring sanity back NOW!  Meanwhile, national polling averages give “Pro-China Joe” Biden a 15-point lead over President Donald J. Trump.  According to Democrats, Trump is ‘toast’ and might as well resign and go home NOW.
  71. 2020 Thursday D: On the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Sandy Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka the Fly, Democratic-Socialist, blubbered about comments made by Florida GOP Rep.

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

  10. 1850 Monday: The 18th U.S. Secretary of State John M.

  21. 1940 Monday: Following Adolf Hitler putting out peace feelers to the Brits, Lord Halifax, the British foreign secretary, rebuffs the Fuhrer by telling him that until others have freedom, Great Britain will continue the fight and won’t submit.  This, of course, outrages the Nazi leader.  He had hopes that the German and British peoples which have much in common could ally together in the fight against global Bolshevism, but the Brits are having none of it.
  22. 1941 Tuesday: Architects presented the plans for the Pentagon to the House Subcommittee of Appropriations.  On the Eastern Front, Axis forces continue steamrolling across the Soviet Union.  The problems the Axis troops are facing is that as they head east, Russia opens up like a great funnel which dilutes the strength of the Axis forces.  That’s bad enough but stories of the atrocities the Nazis are committing behind the lines against civilians- notably communist party members and Jews- is stiffening the backbones of the Red Army soldiers.  Even without help in sight, they trade their lives to buy time for their comrades farther east to prepare defenses.   Still, Operation Barbarossa rolls forward.
  23. 1942 Wednesday: The Nazis began transporting Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto to the Treblinka Death Camp.  Meanwhile, back along the Atlantic Seaboard in the United States, gasoline-rationing involving the use of coupons commenced.  Elsewhere, in the Pacific Theater, the Japanese are continuing their advance across New Guinea placing Australia in danger.
  24. 1943 Thursday: American forces led by General George S. Patton captured Palermo, Sicily, during World War II.  At least 50,000 Italian troops- about the size of a division- are trapped in the western portion of the island and without relief will have to lay down their arms and become prisoners of war.  Not long ago, Il Duce Benito Mussolini guaranteed his ally, Adolf Hitler, that the Fascists would continue the fight.
  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.

  32. 1955 Friday: The first vice president to preside over a president’s cabinet meeting—Richard M. Nixon in support of President Dwight D. Eisenhower—does so on this date.
  33. 1959 Wednesday: In Salem, Oregon, the former 35th U.S. Interior Secretary Douglas McKay died at age 66.  A Republican, he served under President Dwight D. Eisenhower from January 21, 1953, to April 15, 1956.
  34. 1963 Monday: Sonny Liston knocks out Floyd Patterson at the 2:10 minute mark in the first round of their scheduled 15-round heavyweight title fight.  Besides putting his record to 35-1, Liston retained the WBA, NYSAC, and The Ring magazine heavyweight titles of the world and won the inaugural WBC heavyweight title.  As for Patterson, the loss put his record to 38-4.
  35. 1965 Thursday: BBC-TV in England debuted “Till Death Us Do Part” on this date.
  36. 1967 Saturday: Jimi Hendrix[iv] calls it ‘quits’ opening for the Monkees[v] on their U.S. tour.
  37. 1969 Tuesday: Aretha Franklin undergoes arrest in Detroit, Michigan, for disturbing the peace.

  41. 1987 Wednesday: To protect them from possible Iranian assault, the United States Navy commenced escorting re-flagged Kuwaiti oil tankers up and down the Persian Gulf.  Because the Iraqis were kicking Iranian butt in the Iran-Iraq War, the Iranians wanted to widen the war to which, the United States under President Ronald Reagan told them, “NO.”
  42. 1991 Thursday: Police in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, arrested sick f**k Jeffrey Dahmer, who later confessed to murdering 17 men and boys.  Dahmer ended up dying in prison after another inmate beat him to death in general population.
  43. 1992 Saturday: Colombian drug cartel kingpin Pablo Escobar escapes from his luxury prison near the city of Medellin.  Security forces eventually located him in December 1992, stormed his compound and killed the degenerate cocaine baron.   
  44. 1994 Monday: O.J. Simpson pleads “Absolutely 100-percent not-guilty” of murder.
  45. 1995 Saturday: Worthless mother Susan Smith is found guilty of murdering her two young children in South Carolina so she could be with her boyfriend.
  46. 1998 Wednesday: The frigging Iranians tested a medium-range missile capable of hitting Saudi Arabia or Israel on this date.  
  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.
  49. 2003 Tuesday: Saddam Hussein’s two miserable sons Odai and Qusai died during a gunfight with U.S. forces in northern Iraq.  Elsewhere, a fire broke out near the top of the Eiffel Tower.  French authorities evacuated approximately 4,000 people sans any reported injuries.
  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.
  53. 2009 Wednesday: The longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century, lasting up to 6 minutes and 38.8 seconds occurred over parts of Asia and the Pacific Ocean.
  54. 2011 Friday: The International Monetary Fund approves a new three-year loan deal for Haiti, $60 million and cancels its $268 million debt.  Elsewhere, Anders Breivik, a self-described “militant nationalist,” massacred 69 people at a Norwegian island youth retreat after detonating a bomb in nearby Oslo that killed eight others in the nation’s worst violence since World War II.  Breivik was angry over the massive importation of Muslims into his homeland.
  55. 2012 Sunday:  India elects Pranab Mukherjee as its new President.
  56. 2013 Monday: Scientific studies reveal that dolphins have unique names for one another in much the same way as do human beings.  Elsewhere, frenzied crowds of Roman Catholics in Rio de Janeiro mobbed the car carrying Pope Francis as he returned to his home continent for the first time as pontiff, embarking on a seven-day visit.  Meanwhile, the Duchess of Cambridge, the former Kate Middleton, gave birth to a son, Prince George, who became third in line to the British throne after Prince Charles and Prince William.
  57. 2014 Tuesday: A case of bubonic plague in the Chinese province of Gansu prompts quarantines in parts of the city of Yumen; while outbreaks are rare, the disease can be contracted by contact with fleas from wild rodents.
  58. 2015 Wednesday: Eddie Hardin of the Spencer Davis Group[vi] and Axis Point[vii] died from a heart attack on this date.  
  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.
  65. 2020 Wednesday B: Covid-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– Here are today’s Xi Jinping Bat Flu Statistics for the globe: 15,008,046 confirmed cases, UP by 233,159 cases, 617,902 confirmed deaths, UP by 6,303 deaths, and 8,511,330 confirmed recoveries, UP by 171,288 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 4,019,492 confirmed cases, UP by 123,689 new cases, 145,053 confirmed deaths, UP by 2,021 new deaths, and 1,185,757 confirmed recoveries, UP by 55,552 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 MF-ers).   
  66. 2020 Wednesday C: 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: 413,576 confirmed cases, 7,883 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 1,418 confirmed cases, 24 confirmed deaths, and 1,084 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 48,575 confirmed cases, 1,465 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed 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, Florida: 379,619 confirmed number of cases, 5,459 confirmed number of deaths, and like Blue States, NO number of confirmed recoveries.  What’s up, Governor Ron DeSantis?  Acting like a Blue State governor?    
  67. 2020 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,005.84, UP 165.44 points (0.62%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,706.13, UP 25.76 points (0.24%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,276.02, UP 18.72 points (0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,868.80 per troy oz., +3.70 (+0.20%) while the price of SILVER is $23.20 per troy ounce, +0.061 (+0.26%).  The price of PLATINUM is $964.00 per troy oz, +6.60 (0.69%) while the price of COPPER is $2.92 per pound, -0.0045 (-0.15%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $41.82 per barrel, -0.08 (-0.19%).

  69. 2021 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J.
