210. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, JULY 29, 2022

1945 Sunday: After delivering the atomic bomb to U.S. Air Forces in the Pacific, the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis is torpedoed by a Japanese submarine and sunk somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. It would be days before the U.S. Navy even though they were missing and over the course of their time in the water, struggling sailors would be attacked by ravenous sharks around the clock. What a nightmare.

Kerry, D-Massachusetts, accepted the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination at the party’s Boston convention with a military salute and the declaration, “I’m John Kerry and I’m reporting for duty.”  It is good to note that he skated through a short-lived military career in the Brown Water Navy during the Vietnam War and then came home and became the biggest anti-war protester going so far as to throw the medals of someone else over the fence surrounding the White House.

  52. 2014 Tuesday: In Sierra Leone during the Ebola virus crisis, Dr. Sheik Umar Khan succumbs to the disease himself, the principal physician battling against it.  Meanwhile, in Palestinian-controlled Gaza Strip, the authorities claim that 100 of their citizens were killed in Israeli airstrikes.  IF Palestinians were killed, it’s because they were acting the fool- like usual.  In the wake of this, France announces it will send 8-million euros in aid to the Gaza.  Good for them, virtue-signaling is always good.
  53. 2015 Wednesday: In the Indian Ocean off the coast of France’s Reunion Island, searchers find debris from a Boeing 777, which officials believe to be from the missing Malaysia Air Lines Flight 370.  The plane disappeared over a year ago.
  54. 2016 Friday: In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, at the Democratic National Convention, Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the first woman to accept the presidential nomination of a major political party.  Needless to say, her fellow Democrats fall into a celebratory swoon and sex workers around the city see the numbers of their patrons spike.  Virginia Senator Tim Kaine becomes her running mate.  What a pair of losers.
  55. 2017 Saturday: U.S. and South Korean forces conducted joint live-fire exercises in response to North Korea’s second launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile; experts said the North Korean launch showed that a substantial portion of the United States was now within the range of Kim Jong Un’s arsenal of missiles. 
  56. 2018 Sunday: Students in Dhaka, Bangladesh, launch protests around the nation demanding safer roadways.  In a country as poor as this one, they are incapable of doing the necessary infrastructure work to make their nation safe.
  57. 2019 Monday: In the state of Para in Brazil, a gang war between two rival gangs explodes at the Altamira Prison what with 58 slain, including 16 beheaded among that horrifying number.  Eventually, prison guards retake the prison but the violence is absolutely horrendous.
  58. 2020 Wednesday: In the Lone Star State, President Donald J. Trump signed some executive orders allowing for the building of pipelines and accompanying infrastructure.  Meanwhile, the House Judiciary Committee grilled the CEOs of Google (a POS), Facebook, Apple, and Amazon.com over unfair practices when it comes to promoting all-things liberal and trashing all-things conservative.  We can attest to Google destroying our two blogs all because Sundar Pichai is little more than a piece of frothy scum floating atop an exposed septic tank.  Get them, Republicans, get this scum…  Finally, speculation abounds as people continue pondering whether “Pro-China Joe” Biden will choose Sen. Kamala Harris (please, take her, get her the hell out of California), former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, or California Rep. Karen Bass.  We shall see.  Our money’s on Elizabeth Warren, a ‘true woman of color’ (LOL!).

[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Indiana: $3.114.  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- Philippines: $4.590 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,579,970,824,046 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Israel, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland with $51 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.
  68. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 128 for the gibbering jackal of a ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s Mattress, aka the screeching jabberwocky of the rain forest, aka the howling midnight marsupial to be in charge of the southern border and to have done little to nothing about it.  It’s also her 34th day since her one and only visit to the border and to have done nothing about it but wait- she released an 18-page report today.  The report does nothing about re-igniting the border wall construction, it does nothing to stop the tidal wave of illegal aliens into the country, nor does it do anything about rounding up this human fecal matter and deporting it out of the country.  No, it will TRY to address the same issues in the Northern Triangle that every administration since the late 1980s tried to address and ONLY- we repeat- ONLY President Donald J. Trump fixed.   Get Trump back into the White House.  NOW.
  69. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Here are the numbers for the illegal alien invasion as of today as presented by One America News, an extremely brave and informative network.  First, here is the cost this day of caring for all these illegal aliens: $519,267,008.  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the illegal aliens in custody: $229,560,434,688.  Third, here are the numbers of illegal alien invaders who have flooded into the United States just this year: 2,352,810.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens currently residing in the U.S. sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers: 36,352,808.  (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- the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day has said since the blog’s first inception on July 29, 2009- twelve long years ago today- that the numbers of illegal aliens back then was around 35-50 million whereas now- we believe they are closer to 75-100 million illegals, people that need to be scooped up and deported ASAP.  Newsmax reports that more countries are sending illegals to the United States.  As if we didn’t have enough.
  70. : COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Today we learn that 12 members and/or staff of the Major League Baseball team the Washington Nationals have tested positive for the ‘VID, only one of whom was unvaccinated.  And the health authorities claim that breakthrough cases are RARE.  It sounds more likely to us that once one gets vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu; one becomes much more susceptible to this Chi-Com shit than if they haven’t had the vaccine.  Until we learn more, they can talk about VACCINE MANDATES all they want but folks, people are not going to continue taking this crap sitting down.
  71. 2021 Thursday I: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– The Centers for Disease Control Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said today that ‘COVID-19 vaccine passports could be the way forward.’  Back at ya, Rep. Daniel Perez, R-FL 116th congressional district, says that ‘choice, not mandates, a priority in combatting the Chi-Vi.’  Meanwhile, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has instructed her personal ‘Pelosi Police—her form of the Joestapo- to arrest visitors and staff who refuse to wear masks on the House side of the Congress.  Wow.  Rep. Kat Cammack, R-FL 3rd congressional district, labeled Pelosi’s mask mandate ‘tyrannical.’  Amen.
  72. : Health and Medical Alerts– The Centers for Disease Control says that Americans should wear masks in 70-percent of America’s counties.  Elsewhere, on Fox News Channel this evening with Judge Janine Pirro filling in for Sean Hannity, it was reported that TWO whistleblowers at Ft. Bliss in Texas were ordered by their higher-ups to cover up the horrendous numbers of COVID-19 infections running amok through the concentration camps holding the little illegal alien brats.  The Joestapo gave orders NOT to share true numbers with the media even as healthcare workers and CBP officials and others providing care to the illegal alien invaders were taking the pandemic out of the holding pens and to their homes where they were infecting their families.  Time to lay in minefields and other anti-personnel traps along the entire southern border.  NOW.  Build the wall, deport them all, and put the Bidenistas- including the head guy and his saggy-skinned wife- and their supporters into federal prisons.
  73. 2021 Thursday K: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators sent drooling Joe Biden a letter today demanding he not host POS Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, a known terrorist, at the White House.  (Note- Joe most likely will).  Speaking of slobbering Joe, a new poll says that his support has plummeted to 46-percent among voters and Rasmussen says that 59-percent of American voters blame the senile old fogey for rising inflation.  (Note- we think old Joe is going to end up like Nicolae and Elena Ceausescu did following the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe). 
  74. 2021 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News I– Following the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, the Federal Bureau of Investigation descended upon some businesses in Florida today seeking God knows what.  Meanwhile, landlords across the country are suing the Biden regime over its extension of the highly unfair evictions moratorium rules regarding COVID-19.   Stumbling old Joe asked Congress today to extend the dubious moratorium that is set to expire this week.  Finally, Democrats are delirious today as first-time jobless claims last week fell to 400,000.  Woo-oo!
  75. : Political News I– Well-known, racist Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, DS-RI, still won’t slam the ALL-WHITE restricted beach club of which he is a member, even when Black Lives Matter trash threaten him with violence.  What is it about these frigging Democrats that they do all kinds of racist, bigoted stuff and most of the time there is no price they have to pay for their prejudice?  If Whitehouse were a Republican, he would already be out of the U.S. Senate and on the way back to his, uh, private ALL-WHITE beach club to spend the remainder of his days.
  76. 2021 Thursday N: Political News II– Senator Kyrsten Sinema, DS-AZ, under assault by the likes of Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, aka AOC, and her fellow squad members, says she ‘won’t support the reconciliation bill being pushed by the loony tunes Democratic-Socialists.’  Amen!  Speaking of left-wing lunatics, Senator Bernie Sanders former political PAC- Our Revolution- a communist far, far, far-left group- is rebranding into ‘Pragmatic Progressives’ because it’s clear the old warhorse from Vermont won’t be running for president again.  What fun!
  77. 2021 Thursday O: Political News III– Washington, D.C. Police Department is going to hire 170 new law enforcement officers.  Meanwhile, Rep. Fred Keller, R-PA 12th congressional district, told Newsmax today that Joe Biden’s actions don’t jibe with his words on ‘buying American.’   In other news, Trump supporters raised $7.5 million for the Arizona 2020 Election Audit.  Speaking of Arizona, the third recount has been completed and the ballots will be heading back to their storage site.  (Speaking of election integrity, Joe Biden’s DOJ is launching a task force to investigate threats against (Democratic) election officials).  Next, conservatives want to see RINO hacks Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger booted from the Republican ranks.  (Note- they’re Democrats- Leader McCarthy, send them packing!)
  78. 2021 Thursday P: Miscellaneous News I– Apparently an entity known as “Jetpack Man” is back buzzing Los Angeles International Airport, aka LAX.  Seems like it might be time to shoot this bastard down before he causes a horrendous collision between airliners or with an airliner.  Meanwhile, Rep. Scott Perry, R-PA 10th congressional district, is encouraging his fellow Americans NOT to buy NBA or other sports apparel manufactured by Chi-Com slave labor in Xinjiang Province where the concentration camps are.
  79. 2021 Thursday Q: Observation of the Day– Joe Biden is rapidly becoming to the U.S. what Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom is to California: a LOSER.  Joe is unifying people of all political parties against him with wide open borders, constant insults and anger, and failed policies just as Governor Newsom has people from the far left to the far right uniting together to get him the f**k out of office.  Instead of trying to do something to help the people he was elected to govern, neither Joe nor “Nazi” Newsom can get out of their own way.  This is WHY both of them want to bring illegal aliens to every part of the state or country so they can spread COVID-19 and perhaps allow them to steal the recall election in the Golden State and the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  We think neither one can save himself and we cannot wait until Recall Election Day in September to boot Newsom out of office and into the nearest dumpster.
  80. 2022 Friday: This past Tuesday, President Donald J. Trump gave a barnburner of a speech in Washington, D.C.  Unlike his rally appearances, this speech hammered away at the Biden regime and the Democrats point by stellar point by stellar point.  IF I were the Dems- and their RINO sycophants- I would be afraid, deathly afraid.  The second time around is going to be far different than the first was, and I would liken President Trump’s second time around as being close to British Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  Churchill save the Brits from the Nazis, the Fascists, and the Imperial Japanese and their allies, whereas I believe President Trump will save us from the communist scum living amongst us and from the Chi-Coms, the Russians, and their lesser allies.  Remarkable things are coming over the horizon, which is why this November, we must send the Democrats packing along with their scumbag RINO allies.  Please, let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

  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.
  54. 2013 Wednesday: NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden remains in Moscow, Russia; he is stranded at Russia’s Sheremetyevo International Airport.  Elsewhere in the world, things continue going from bad to worse in Mexico.  In the state of Michoacan, federal law enforcement officers engage in a running gun battle with members of the Knights Templar drug cartel.  At least two officers are killed and 20 narcoterrorists.  Clever work, federales. 
  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. [xiii]     
  70. 2021 Saturday D: FRIDAY’S Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,823.55, UP 238.20 points (+0.68%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,836.99, UP 152.39 points (+1.04%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,411.79, UP 44.31 points (+1.01%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $72.17 per barrel, +0.10 (+0.42%).  The price of GOLD is $1,802.10 per troy oz., +0.30 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.24 per troy ounce, +0.01 (+0.03%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,059.10 per troy oz, -2.30 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, +0.05 (+1.25%).

The price of NEODYMIUM is $720,000.00 per troy oz., -5,000.00 (-0.69%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $2,507.25 per troy oz., +41.25 (+1.67%). [xvi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000029.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.85 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.04.     In East Caribbean Dollar, one greenback equals 2.69 and in Ecuadoran Sucre, a buck equals 25,083.49 and in Egyptian Pound, one dollar equals 15.63 of theirs. [xvii]        
  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.

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

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

  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.

  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.

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.

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

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

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

1945 Tuesday: German U-Boat U-530 surfaces south of Buenos Aires, Argentina, a submarine that had gone missing after the German surrender.

  62. 2015 Friday: After a state law enacted its removal, the state of South Carolina removes the Confederate flag from the Capitol grounds.  Many see the flag as racist and following the assault on the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church that saw nine parishioners murdered by a white racist, the state had had enough.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of State blasts Thailand for its decision to deport a bunch of Uighur Muslims back to Xinjiang Province where the Chi-Coms are running amok in their persecutions of Muslims and other ethnic and religious minorities.

Walmart.  Elsewhere, the government of Iraq announces that the final positions of ISIS thugs in Mosul have been conquered and the scumbag jihadists either captured or killed.  Meanwhile, doctors in communist China report that Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo is in ‘grave, grave condition.’  Yup, most likely because YOU put him there.

  66. 2019 Wednesday: After cables between the British Embassy in Washington, D.C. and London suddenly appear in the news, cables in which, the British ambassador to the U.S. Sir Kim Darroch lambastes President Donald J. Trump for being ‘inept,’ among other things, the ambassador returns home in shame.  Speaking of the Brits, however, they have problems in the Persian Gulf as three IRGC swift boats attempt to commandeer a British oil tanker, the British Heritage.  However, a Royal Navy vessel, the HMS Montrose, warns the Iranian scum away from the tanker and thus they vacate as fast as their engines can propel them.  You should have sunk the maggots.
  67. 2020 Friday: U.S. Customs and Border Protection, aka CBP, reports that arrests of illegal aliens along the open parts of the U.S. southern border with Mexico were up 40% in June.  We say, “Build the wall and deport them all.”  Meanwhile average polling of the presidential matchup shows that “Pro-China Joe” Biden is leading President Donald J. Trump by 49.6% to 40.8%.  Finally, tropical storm Fay threatens to hammer New York City.   Perhaps if it slams the city, there won’t be as much violence this weekend as there was last week.

  71. 2020 Friday D: Less than a week before Roger Stone was to report to federal prison to serve his 3.5-year-stretch for being a friend of the commander-in-chief, President Donald J. Trump commuted his sentence to time served which drove the insane leftists berserk.  Meanwhile, the CEO of Goya Foods. Robert Unanue says he won’t back down upon having been at the White House the day prior and complimented the president on a job well done.  Good for you!
  72. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 187,188,248 confirmed cases, +366,661, 4,040,987 confirmed deaths, +6,599 and 171,108,101 confirmed recoveries, +230,606.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 34,723,547 confirmed cases, UP 16,178 from yesterday’s reporting, 622,810 confirmed deaths, UP 145, [xii] and 29,233,712 confirmed recoveries, UP 11,765.  We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.

[xx]    Let’s look at one other location- Wisconsin: $2.970.  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- Ivory Coast: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon. [xxi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,506,094,235,480 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS. [xxii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Luxembourg, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Brazil with $258 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 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– By the count of the AICPENDBLOG.COM, today is Day No. 109 for ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the unfolding border calamity and her 15th day since her first and only visit to the border.  Has she done anything?  Nope.  We’ve seen nothing.  Meanwhile, One America News presented the daily cost of the illegal alien invasion as well as the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals.  Are you ready?  Here we go: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the infestation of invaders: $585,654,656.  Imagine what that money could do for the homeless, the addicted, wounded veterans, and Americans devastated by harsh Chi-Vi lockdowns?  It would be transformational.  Next, (2) Total Cost of caring for the detritus of the Third World this year: $208,804,888,576.  Moving on, (3) Estimated number of illegals who have entered the United States this year: 2,140,083.  Finally, (4) CONSERVATIVE estimate of illegal aliens running amok in the United States: 36,140,084. [xxiii] (Sources for OAN: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).
  79. 2021 Saturday G: Political News I– Esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that the Big Tech case will frame the law moving forward for the 21st century.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump calls on Senate Republicans to stop negotiating on infrastructure.  Amen.  It’s a Trojan horse.   Elsewhere, in Charlottesville, Virginia, statues of Confederate icons Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson are being removed today.  How sad.  Meanwhile, new reports suggest that female staffers on Capitol Hill are still lagging behind their male counterparts when it comes to salaries.  Democrats- aren’t YOU in charge?
  80. 2021 Saturday H: Political News II– In other news, ramshackle Joe Biden continues taking flak over his plan to send the Joestapo door to door to check on people’s vaccination status.  Wow.  Add to that the fact that he cannot even remember the name of his own, hand-picked Health and Human Services secretary (and California’s shame) Xavier Becerra and one can see disaster unfolding.  Besides, Secretary Becerra is taking all kinds of heat for suggesting the government has the RIGHT TO KNOW the vaccine status of ALL U.S. citizens while not giving a flying f**k about the illegal aliens the administration is distributing around the country.
  81. 2021 Saturday I: Political News III– Illinois is becoming the first state to order teaching of Asian-American history to all students.  Oh, boy, do some chest-thumping there, Governor J.B. Pritzker!  In other news, fencing around Capitol Hill reportedly is coming down six months after the Democrats’ FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021.   Elsewhere, a judge blocks Tennessee’s new law requiring public bathrooms to post notices regarding trannys entering them.  Now, the notices cannot appear as it’s somehow discriminatory against confused individuals believing themselves to be something they are NOT.  Finally, a growing number of Democrats are growing fearful that their party has become too WOKE.  (Note- you can add me to the list- Chef Bea O’Malley).
  82. 2021 Saturday J: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– Tonight, we have Super Lotto and Powerball.  The Super Lotto Draw #3576 has a $62 million pot on the line.  The Powerball Draw #862 has a $127 million pot on the line.  Stick around and find out the results for both.  Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw: 09, 11, 15, 27, 30, and Mega 25.  Out of 136,746 winning tickets, the highest winners were ONE person who had FIVE NUMBERS plus the Mega for a prize of $62,000,000.  That ticket was sold at Tori Liquor in Van Nuys, CA 91405.

[xxiii] Our original blog began back in 2009 and by 2010- when we realized the Chi-Coms were spying on us at the Choseit.com blogsite, we went to Google in late summer 2010 and we estimated then that the numbers of illegal aliens in the country was then between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the numbers of illegal aliens running amok in our great country is between 75-100 million.  What other country would not respond militarily to an invasion such as this?  We believe that we must lay in minefields along the entire southern border, that we must build anti-personnel, anti-vehicular, and anti-vessel traps, we also must lay in foo gas pits, barbed wire, seed the area with rattlesnakes and alligator pups, put in snipers to shoot the traffickers through their heads as they ply the waters of the Rio Grande.  We believe we must imprison every U.S. citizen caught helping illegal aliens for 20 years to start. We must heavily tax all monies flowing out of the U.S. at between 90-95-percent and we believe we must send employers and landlords to prison for helping illegal aliens.  It is rapidly becoming us or them.  -Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

190. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JULY 09, 2022

2018 Monday: President Donald J. Trump announces his second pick for the U.S. Supreme Court: Brett Kavanaugh. In order to take the seat of his mentor, Justice Anthony Kennedy, Kavanaugh would have to undergo one of the most grueling confirmation processes heretofore seen in recent times in this country. Eventually, he would persevere but the Democrats in the U.S. Senate did everything imaginable to destroy this excellent jurist. God bless you, Justice Kavanaugh.

  68. 2020 Thursday C: On the final day of the U.S. Supreme Court’s term, the high court handed down two decisions, both regarding President Donald J. Trump.  First, in Trump v. Vance (Manhattan D.A. Cyrus Vance Jr., a real Trump hater), the court ruled that the president does not have absolute immunity from all lawsuits, all nine justices agreeing on this point.  However, it was not an immediate win for D.A. Vance as he cannot see the tax documents he has been trying to see because it’s a political witch hunt sans any real need to see the tax returns.  In Trump v. Mazars, the court handed the president a tactical victory in that the House committee seeking to see his tax returns cannot go on a fishing expedition and must have a reason as to WHY they must see his tax returns.  We shall see with what the maggots in the House produce.  
  69. 2020 Thursday D: Meanwhile, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan won’t let go of the now-destroyed case against Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn in that he is asking the federal appellate court to give the case another look.  WTF?  The Justice Dept. and federal prosecutors said to DROP the case because of the illegalities employed by the prosecution against the former national security advisor yet the crazed Judge Sullivan won’t let it go.  The guy is cruising for a future impeachment.

[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Vermont: $3.046.  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- Burkina Faso: $4.210 per U.S. Gallon. [xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,502,613,982,101 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 been given public lashings.  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.
  76. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Here we are, Day No. 170 for the Biden regime to have usurped power from the rightful president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.  Anyhow, today is Day No. 108 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris, aka Willie Brown’s mattress, aka the gibbering jackal, aka the screeching banshee, aka the tittering orangutan to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border.  Today is also 14 days since her first and last visit to the border and we don’t expect to see her back at the border until President Donald J. Trump visits the region again.
  77. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Next, here are the stats for the illegal alien calamity for which the Biden regime bears 150-percent responsibility as presented by One America News channel: (1) Total Cost this Day of caring for the riffraff crossing the southern border: $570,053,440.  Next, here are the costs of caring for the tidal wave of illegal aliens this year (2): $207,693,398,016.  Next, (3) this is the number of illegal aliens who have crossed the border this year: 2,128,691.  Finally, (4) Total Number of illegal aliens estimated to be roaming the country: 36,128,692.  Note- this is a conservative effort as we at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day have as far back as 2009 when our blog underwent founding believe the number then was between 35-50 million.  Now, we believe the truer number of illegal aliens lurking in America’s shadows is closer to 75-100 million.  Time to round them up and to begin deporting this human fecal matter back to whence they came.   If we want to keep the brats, let’s put them into military academies and then use them to fight Third World regime change wars.
  78. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Following the brutal assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, at least two Americans are among the 17 suspected assassins scooped up by Haitian law enforcement.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse as they normally do in Haiti, Port-au-Prince is begging that the United States send them troops to help them quell the violence.  Time for ‘Papa Doc’ and the Ton-Ton Macoute to come back and restore order, i.e., maybe a little bit of cannibalism will get everyone back in line?
  79. 2021 Friday I: Joe Biden News I– Slobbering Joe Biden is pushing Russia’s Vladimir Putin to do something about hacking U.S. companies.  Next, decrepit old Joe has nominated failed Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti to become the next U.S. ambassador to India.  Next, the voice in Joe Biden’s earpiece told him to fire holdover from the Trump presidency, Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul after he refused to resign.  Apparently, Democrats and their allied hacks in labor unions and advocates for welfare despised the guy and he had to go.  Thus he did.  C’est la vie.
  80. 2021 Friday J: Political News I– Democratic leaders are doing what they do best and that is threatening another long, sweltering summer of unmitigated violence.  I say, ‘we give it to them!’ Next, the first group to appear before House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi’s ‘January 06, 2021, Select Committee’ will be Capitol Hill law enforcement officers when the panel begins.  These cops- under control of Speaker “Mumbles”- will be the first panel to dance to Pelosi’s jig.  Will they be the ones we have seen on film welcoming protesters and directing them as to where to go inside the U.S. Capitol on that day?  We expect the False Flag Operation orchestrated by the nonagenarian speaker and her cohorts will be evident for what it is: a load of hooey.
  81. 2021 Friday K: Political News II– Lt. General Michael Flynn, U.S. Army Ret., is endorsing Vernon Jones in his bid to unseat extremely unpopular RINO Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia.  Speaking of Governor Kemp, he reacted angrily to the BS flowing out of the White House regarding the state’s cleaning up of its voting system and said that ‘BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are lying about the Peach State’s changes to its voting laws.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Pramila “Pucker Puss” Jayapal, CPUSA-WA 7th congressional district, is back to beating a dead horse, “Medicare for All.”  Enough already, “Pucker Puss.”
  82. 2021 Friday L: Political News III– Former governor and UN ambassador under President Donald J. Trump, Nikki Haley, put forth two endorsements today (not that they matter) in two gubernatorial races in the nation.  First, in New Jersey, she has endorsed Republican Jack Ciattarelli and in Virginia, Republican Glenn Youngkin.  We shall see what happens.  Oh, President Donald J. Trump calls Virginia Democratic-Socialist candidate Terry “The Maggot” McAuliffe a ‘political hack.’  Elsewhere, Rep. Michael Waltz, R-FL 6th congressional district, says of Joe Biden’s rushed withdrawal from Afghanistan that it reignites the fears of the terrorists coming here.
  83. 2021 Friday M: Political News IV– In other political news, White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says that ‘buyers of Hunter Biden’s ‘art’ will remain ANONYMOUS.  Folks, can you fathom what would happen if say Baron Trump was painting artworks and selling them for hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars?  Ye gods, folks, there would be so many investigations on Capitol Hill that all other work of government would come to a screeching halt so every moment of every waking day could be spent investigation such an outrage.  Yet, when crack-headed pedophile Hunter Biden does it, it’s NO big deal.  Retribution is coming folks and it’s going to hit the Democrats like a tidal wave beginning this September when California boots Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  The big day is September 14.  EVERYONE VOTE.
  84. 2021 Friday N: Moron News I– We haven’t had any Moron News lately but little Sandy Cortez, aka “The Fly,” aka “Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” aka “AOC,” is blaming fossil fuel executives for flooded New York City subways.  That’s like Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, DS-CA, blaming the horrible forest fire in northern California on ‘global warming,’ aka ‘climate change,’ aka ‘extreme weather,’ or whatever other moniker they choose to put on it when it’s failure to clean the forests and to continue building water infrastructure so that when crises hit- like the ongoing drought- water is available to offset it.  Both Sandy Cortez and “Nazi” Newsom are MORONS.  At least, California is going to get him out on September 14 (unless, of course, the ‘fix is in’ which it might be).  As for AOC and her subways, Baby Girl- if I can call you that- the reason the subways are flooded is because NYC is spending money on social re-engineering projects instead of doing what must be done and that is to maintain and improve existing infrastructure.  God knows there’s more than enough tax dollars in both the city and in the Empire State.
  85. 2021 Friday O: Federal and State Court News– North Dakota is suing the Biden regime over its cancelation of new fossil fuel contracts on public lands.  Good.  Sue the heck out of them.
  86. 2021 Friday P: Fake News I– John King of CNN- pompous, conceited ass- is upset by Alabama GOP Senate candidate Jessica Taylor’s new ad in which a rocket ‘launches’ liberal ideas and values into space and she mispronounces the name of our ‘esteemed “Kooky Kamala” Harris.  The fake news-spouting hack called the ad ‘VILE!’  Ah, wah, wah, wah, John, STFU.  Ms. Taylor is in the running to replace retiring Senator Richard Shelby.
  87. 2021 Friday Q: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump endorses former secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior Ryan Zinke in his bid to return to Congress from the great state of Montana.

  72. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.223 per gallon, $2.973 in Florida, $3.969 in Hawaii, and $3.611 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Kentucky: $2.917.  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- Bhutan: $3.559 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,390,758,451,670 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 been given public lashings.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Switzerland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Belgium (imagine that!) with $253 billion of U.S. national debt.[xxi]
  73. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– The president of Guatemala- Alejandro Giammattei – blames the Biden regime for the crisis at the southern border and not his country or its people.   Next, Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, is hosting a border crisis summit today in the Lone Star State.  Speaking of the disaster, Newsmax reports that millions of illegal aliens could pour across the southern border, a statement confirmed by former Acting Customs and Border Patrol Commissioner Mark Morgan.  Rep.  Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, has offered a formal invitation to “Kooky Kamala” Harris to visit the California-Mexico border as his guest.
  74. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Iran is growing bolder in its demands to rejoin the failed nuclear deal, the JCPOA.  Elsewhere, the French man who slapped President Emanuel Macron gets a four-month stretch in the hoosegow.  (Note- in the U.S., he might have languished in the jail for 6-7 years before his trial would finally occur in the courts.  Then, he might wait anywhere from 6-24 months before receiving sentence.  Maybe we should speed up our courts like the French model?)   Meanwhile, if Benjamin Netanyahu is ousted from Israeli politics, it could end up hurting relations between American evangelicals and the Jewish state.   Next, the Chi-Coms liken the hysteria over the origins of the Chi-Vi to the one swirling around ‘weapons of mass destruction and Iraq.’  Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘Venezuela must turn back’ the two Iranian vessels on the way to dock in that criminal regime.
  75. 2021 Thursday H: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information– Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, is raising new questions about Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci’s ‘advice’ to ‘follow the science.’  It is clear that the “Mighty Mite” is no longer a practitioner of science so much as he is a political hack working on behalf of the left.  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that the probe into the Chi-Com Bat Virus’ origins is much like the Trump-Russian Collusion probe meaning to us, it’s a political show with no real outcome expected.  Next, Moderna files for emergency use of its Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine for use in minors, ages 12-17.  However, stunning information continues to bubble up regarding the use of the Chi-Vi vaccines in young people and the accompanying rates of serious symptoms including those of myocarditis or inflammation of the heart muscle.  Yet, the Biden regime continues pushing these vaccines onto every American like the Reverend Jim Jones pushed cups of Kool-Aid onto his followers down in Jonestown, Guyana.  Friends, may we be so bold as to say what most of us think?  We believe this is social engineering at its worst.  We believe the more people that die around the globe, say, maybe 1-2 billion, that will do the global warming lovers good in cutting down the human population on the planet, something they have been hard at work accomplishing via abortion, rising crime rates, a polluted environment, increased fear, and now ‘vaccines for a lab-engineered virus in…frigging communist China?’  F*** this, NONE of us are going to take this vaccination.  (Note- now that we know hydroxychloroquine increases one’s chances of surviving this crap by 200-percent and it’s cheap, then WTF?)
  76. 2021 Thursday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent and Stolen Election News– The Arizona state senate is prepared for whatever the results from the 2020 Election are.  From press conferences, we already know there are loads of problems.  Likewise, election officials in Fulton County, Georgia, are preparing to depose some of the corrupt election officials that scanned, re-scanned, and re-re-scanned stacks of ballots after sending everyone else home for the night.  We suspect once the scumbags begin facing prison time, they will begin flipping on one another.  What will the FAKE NEWS MEDIA say then?
  77. 2021 Thursday J: Joe Biden News– Questions continue to arise as to WHY Faux First Lady Dr. Jill Biden spent nearly 20-25 minutes ‘introducing hubby ‘Cho-Mo Joe’ to U.S. military in Great Britain yesterday.  We brought that up yesterday- is she akin to Edith Bolling Galt, President Woodrow Wilson’s wife, who ran the show while her husband was incapacitated by a debilitating stroke?  Everyone knows the drooler-in-chief is not all there.
  78. 2021 Thursday K: Political News I– Fox News heir James Murdoch spent $20 million opposing President Donald J. Trump by donating to Joe Biden and other progressive candidates.  Elsewhere, George P. Bush- in yet another incredible show of brown-nosing on his behalf- says that President Donald J. Trump remains the center of the GOP universe.  Daddy Jeb Bush must be upset.
  79. 2021 Thursday L: Business News– Rising inflation is driving up the costs of everything.  Millennials have no clue as to what inflation is or worse, stagflation, should that economic malady fall atop the country.
  80. 2021 Thursday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– Senator John Thune, R-ND, blasts Joe Biden over the weakness being displayed at the G7 Summit.
  81. 2021 Thursday N: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Amazon.com defends its decision to sell the now-infamous “Blue Lives Murder” merchandise at its site.  Shame on them.  Meanwhile, Newsmax reports on a psychoanalyst by the name of Donald Moss who says that ‘whiteness is parasitic’ and the POS is WHITE.  Ah, all the LOSERS are jumping aboard the anti-white train.  Like the Nazis had the Jews, so, too, do the Democrats have WHITE people.  The time is NOW to stomp out this insanity.  NOW.  Vote out every Democrat and send them to reeducation camps.
  82. 2021 Thursday O: Social Media News and Big Tech News– Instagram fact checks satirical posts about Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci.  It would appear that they are forcing users to either edit or to delete posts critical of the “Mighty Mite.”   Meanwhile, some sort of ad campaign is targeting workers at Facebook with the intention of preventing President Donald J. Trump from EVER being on the platform again.  In other social media news, the U.S. State Department is attacking Nigeria’s ban on Twitter following Twitter shutting down the account of President Muhammadu Buhari.  Once again, the Biden regime is on the wrong side of the argument.
  83. 2021 Thursday P: Health And Medical Alerts– Patients are hopeful to receive Biogen’s new Alzheimer’s drug, even though it costs $56,000 per year and very few insurances will cover the costs.  Add to that the fact that we know little to nothing about its side effects and it would appear we have a crapshoot on our hands.  Still, if it can help people like the ‘drooler-in-chief Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, and the fossilized Senator Dianne Feinstein, then we can watch what happens to them.   Meanwhile, news reports say Medicare Copays for the new Alzheimer’s disease drug could reach $11,500 per year.  Remember: the new drug is projected to cost $56,000 per year.
  84. 2021 Thursday Q: War on Terror News / Terrorism News / Jihad News– The U.S. is considering launching airstrikes in support of its Afghan allies even as the United States continues its withdrawal from that war-torn country.  Meanwhile, Rep.  Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, CPUSA-MN 5th congressional district, finds herself in hot water once again over her anti-Israel and pro-Hamas babblings.  (Note- the question is, is Omar as stupid as Sandy “The Fly” Cortez is or is she even lower IQ than the extremely low IQ leader of the (Suicide) Squad?  This bitch must be removed from Congress ASAP).
  85. 2021 Thursday R: U.S. House of Representatives News– House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden cares more about Russian jobs than he does American ones.’  And they said that President Donald J. Trump was a Russian stooge!  Meanwhile, Rep.  Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-MO 3rd congressional district, says the Biden regime must incentivize workers to return to their jobs rather than disincentivize them by giving them more money to stay home rather than to do the right thing.  Elsewhere, House Republicans have sent letters to Mark Zuckerberg and to Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci questioning their interactions over sanitizing the news on the China Virus. 
  86. 2021 Thursday S: U.S. Senate News– Senator Ted Cruz, R-TX, says it’s amazing to see the large number of foreign policy blunders committed by the Biden regime in its first five months.  Next,  Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci chose the Chi-Coms and Big Tech over the American people.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer says he will look at the bipartisan infrastructure bill.  Conversely, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says little Sandy “The Fly” Cortez can’t even sell her moronic policies to her own party.
  87. 2021 Thursday T: Fake News– “Wank-spanking” Jeffrey Toobin- the luminary of CNN- is returning to that network after getting his head straight.  Everyone should remember that Mr. Toobin ‘pulled a Toobin” by masturbating during a Zoom call with his fellow employees several months back.  Will the cameras ever dare to film him below his chest henceforth?
  88. 2021 Thursday U: President Donald J. Trump News– President Donald J. Trump says that ‘I was exonerated’ by the Layfette Park investigation as well as the recent testimony by former White House counsel Don McGahn.   The 45th president also said of Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci that the man is ‘science fiction.’  Next, he derided Joe Biden on his climate change zaniness.
  89. 2021 Thursday V: California State News– Caitlyn Jenner compares herself to President Donald J. Trump as a ‘disrupter.’  Meanwhile, the Golden State’s Democrats are whining and sniveling that the recall of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom ‘could cost the state $215 million.’  So flipping what?  It’s not like the Democrats care for the homeless, the substance abusers, and anyone else in the state.  They spend BILLIONS of dollars on crap such as the California High Speed Rail boondoggle as well as the loading of salmon spawn onto tanker trucks and carrying them to the Pacific Ocean but they can’t find money for the godforsaken?  WTF!
  90. 2021 Thursday W: Florida State News– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis says he’ll sign a bill prohibiting transgender surgeries for those under the age of 18.  Good.  He should, they are criminal acts committed by ‘WOKE’ parents.  You want to transition, do it when you hit the age of 18.  Florida has also banned Critical Race Theory from all classrooms.
  91. 2021 Thursday X: Texas State News– The Texas Bar Association is ‘investigating’ Attorney General Ken Paxton, R-TX, for ‘official misconduct’ when he called the 2020 Presidential Election in dispute over the claims of rampant fraud and other crimes.  A Michigan judge ruled that AG Paxton was correct when he called out the fraud in the Michigan and three other states and filed lawsuits in federal courts demanding answers.  The states did not follow their own election laws which is why the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from President Donald J. Trump.
  92. 2021 Thursday Y: Economic News– U.S. deficit hits record $2.1 trillion just this year thanks to Democrats out of control spending.
  93. 2021 Thursday Z: Sports News– A judge has ruled that the Major League Baseball All-Star Game will NOT be returning to Atlanta, Georgia, but will go on as scheduled in Denver, Colorado.
  94. 2021 Thursday AA: Miscellaneous News I– L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca rebukes ‘failed liberal policies as insanity.’  Next, three people including a child were shot dead in Florida today.  Moving on, hate crimes against Catholics surging in the U.S.  Finally, a ban on abortions of Down Syndrome babies goes to North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, Democrat, for his signature.
  95. 2022 Friday: Let’s hope today is a slow news day (yet we know it won’t be…)

[i] We look forward to promoting the music of the Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, Roy Wood, and Wizzard.

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

[iv] See previous.

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

[vi] We promoted the music of Big Brother and the Holding Company, beginning on Monday, 18-July-2011 through Tuesday, 26-July-2011.  At the time, we were not farsighted enough to offer the music of Janis Joplin but hope to do so at some point in the near future when we return to promoting the music of American rock bands.

[vii] President Nixon should never have lifted the trade embargo on communist China.  The only time the embargo should have been lifted is when the people of Taiwan cross the straits and reclaim their country from the communists.

101. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, APRIL 11, 2022

: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want. However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes. Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease. What the hell.

  87. 2022 Monday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says ‘Russia will not suspend its military operations in Ukraine even as ‘peace talks’ between the two countries are underway.   Meanwhile, although the Russians claim otherwise, the mayor of Mariupol says that at least 10,000 civilians have died during the siege and that when the siege is lifted, the true numbers of dead civilians could double that.  How is it the United Nations is not raising troops from member countries and forcing Russia to stop its malevolent actions in a peaceful country?
  88. 2022 Monday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris- California’s shame- has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border disaster for the past 374 days and worse, she has not shown up to do more than a couple hours’ worth of work in 288 days.  What has the country done to deserve a vice president such as her?  Okay, we do our best to continue computing the true costs of illegal immigration on America, the same way that One America News did prior to Direct TV removing them from their list of channels.  Perhaps because we continue promoting the honest-to-God numbers to the best of our abilities, perhaps this is why we find ourselves under assault from some of the biggest search engines.  It is what it is.  The cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders since January 01, 2022, is $642,844,149.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since the undynamic duo took their oaths with which they swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution is $42,388,919,892.  The number of illegals we estimate to have crossed the border since January 20, 2021, is 1,026,488.  Fourth and final, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens in the country is 45,401,750.  We believe the numbers to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is the prime reason our country is in a state of economic malaise (not to mention liberal policies).[xxvi] (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  95. 2022 Monday O: Joe Biden Regime News II– Although President Joe Biden is going to continue forcing all federal workers to undergo vaccination with the COVID-19 vaccines- and although Dr. Anthony Fauci continues saying the American people are going to have to learn to live with this foul disease, the Pentagon is moving onto the next pandemic, whatever it might be.
  96. 2022 Monday P: Political News I– Law enforcement officers in Pennsylvania arrested an elderly man who was sticking “I DID THAT” stickers onto gasoline pumps.  The stickers featured President Joseph R. Biden pointing to the exorbitant cost of the gas pumped.  Other hilarious stickers featured the nation’s vice president, quoted as saying, “I HELPED.”  While we recognize gas station owners must peel the stickers off- sometimes with difficulty- one cannot sidestep the fact that energy costs are sky high, and that the Biden-Harris administration bears COMPLETE responsibility and not Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.
  97. 2022 Monday Q: Political News II– Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson blasted the White House and its stance on gender affirming/gender reassignment surgeries.  Of course, the White House is a big proponent of life-altering gender surgeries which seems rather devilish to many.  Next, famed economist Peter Navarro says that a ‘perfect storm’ of stagflation is heading our way.   In other news, Texas General Land Office Commissioner George P. Bush says, ‘it’s right for Governor Greg Abbott to send illegal aliens- what the left euphemistically labels as ‘undocumented migrants- to Washington, D.C., and to other ‘sanctuary locales.’  Finally, in other news Democrat locales would be wise to emulate, Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill this morning with which to bolster fatherhood programs across the Sunshine State.
  98. 2022 Monday R: Political News III– Stacey Abrams-backed election law in the Peach State is going to trial.   Meanwhile, in Iowa, a hubbub continues following last night’s ruling by a judge in the state that won’t permit Senator Chuck Grassley’s struggling Democratic challenger- Abby Finkenauer to appear on the state’s Democratic Party primary ballot.  To qualify for the primary ballot, a candidate must have 100 signatures- or more- each from 19 counties to make the grade.  Although the Finkenauer campaign submitted more than 3,500 signatures, she did not get the necessary number to face off against Senator Grassley.  C’ est la vie.  Of the signatures, questions swirled around three of them from two counties.  Go figure.  Stop registering illegal aliens.
  99. 2022 Monday S: Political News IV– Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says the White House is being mum on its plans with which to shove portions of the Build Back Better plan through to fruition.  We can only speculate what other evil crap the administration is attempting to insert into this doomed-to-fail bill.  Election Day is fast approaching and contrary to what many progressives are trumpeting, not every Democrat wants to lose his or her seat supporting this crumbling ‘signature package.’
  100. 2022 Monday T: Second Amendment News– The National Rifle Association has slammed President Joseph R. Biden’s new executive orders on the evil ‘ghost guns.’  Since before the founding of the country, Americans have made their own firearms and ammunition and even though President Biden believes he has a winner with this issue, Americans will continue making their own guns and crafting their own ammunition.  It is what free people in a free country do.  We are not communist China yet nor if older Americans continue defending freedom from the new generation of indoctrinated losers, we will continue doing this until the day we die.
  101. 2022 Monday U: California Lottery Results-Powerball Monday Night Draw- here are the results for the Powerball Draw #974 with a jackpot of $85 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 24, 31, 34, and Power 04.  Out of 62,911 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $33,732.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

Every artist releases a ‘20th Century Masters,’ i.e., best of compilation, and Robbie Robertson is no different.  We have a collection of the guitarist’s most beloved tunes all in one place so what do you have to lose?  We mourn the loss of the Band just as we celebrated the others regrouping and trying to regain some steam.  We also love Robbie Robertson’s unique songwriting abilities, talent that gave us songs that 50 years later are as powerful and as poignant as they are today, especially when put up against crap from Maroon Five, Coldplay, and other Bozo bands that dupe younger fans into believing they are something of value.  Please, seek this album out, give it a good listen, and consider making it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.

[vi] Hall & Oates?  We have no clue.  Stay tuned.

[vii] Linda Ronstadt?  No clue as to when we will promote the music of this legendary vocalist either.

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

[ix] We hope to present the music of the J. Geil’s Band at some point within the next five years.  One of the great American bands, they most certainly deserve to be heard and celebrated by the readership of the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day.

[xi] Speaking of the decision to flip the game from Atlanta to Denver, we learned today that unsavory people like Stacey Abrams and the big dimwit, the pro-Chi-Com-loving LeBron James were integral in getting the game moved.  How outrageous.  How evil.  Scumbags.

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

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