  69. 2022 Monday: Observation of the Day- Living overseas provides me with a different view of what is going on in my home country.  All I can say is that I have never seen nor thought I would ever see a fascist government the likes of the Joe Biden regime.  Imagine sending FBI goon squads out to the homes of Pro-Life Christian ministers- who among us ever thought we would see that?  Imagine sending an army of FBI thugs into the home of a ‘former’ president, ostensibly to seize records the archivists in Washington, D.C., claim to need?  Never thought I would live to see that.  Imagine going across the country seizing the phones of friends of the ‘former’ president with vague warrants and lots of jackbooted tactics?  Something else I never expected to see.  I never thought that the FBI would go after former advisers for a ‘former’ president, accosting them at airports, slapping them in leg irons, handcuffs, and dragging them off to languish in a prison cell after they agreed to cooperate and to present themselves?  This is not good.  All I can say is that I am glad that I am on the downhill slide in my life that I am closer to the end than nearer to the start.  I suspect that if we fail to have the crushing victory in the 2022 Mid-Terms, future generations will look back on this time in national and world history and will say that this is when DEMOCRACY died and that the American people were unwilling to fight to keep it.  I am extremely glad I am where I am at because I do not know if I could continue functioning in a society gone awry.  Let me know your opinions- Moses Scharbug III.

  61. 2020 Wednesday: The U.S. Senate is busy today what holding the confirmation hearings for Acting Homeland Security Director Chad Wolf as well as the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pension Committee’s hearings on COVID-19 and how the fight is going here in the United States.  FDA boss Dr. Stephen Hahn told the committee that the ‘Food and Drug Administration will not approve or authorize an Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine until medical professionals feel it is safe enough to distribute to their own families.’  Debate continues as to how soon we will have the vaccine available.  We will wait and see.  Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin’s Russia continues braying they have a Chinese Virus vaccine and are going to distribute it.  Folks, a Fox News Channel poll suggests that 35-percent of Americans won’t get the vaccine when it’s available (thanks to goobers like “Pro-China Joe” Biden and losers like Kooky Kamala saying they WON’T get it ‘cos we don’t trust the Orange Man).  Friends, IF the Russkies have a vaccine, it’s going to be as beneficial as Novichok so avoid anything coming out of the former Soviet Union.
  62. 2020 Wednesday A: Deceased U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is lying in repose at the Supreme Court building, this being her first day.  She will lie there tomorrow and will then- on Friday- become the first woman ever to lie in state at the U.S. Capitol.  Sobbing mobs of North Korean-like followers stumble past her lifeless body paying their respects as though she is some sort of despot laid out and everyone ordered to turn out to make it seem as though she had an amazing following.  The Dems, after all, demand WE MUST RESPECT HER ‘FINAL’ WISHES that another president besides #45 nominate her replacement.   
  63. 2020 Wednesday B: Meanwhile, President Trump is honoring the surviving veterans of the Bay of Pigs fiasco of the early 1960s when President John F. Kennedy made a half-assed attempt at toppling Cuban communist dictator Fidel Castro.  God bless you guys!  Elsewhere, Democratic senators are wailing and whining that ‘GOP senators have promised to vote for whomever the replacement for Ruth Bader Ginsburg sight unseen will be.’  Wah, wah, wah: LOOK- Dems, you are already vilifying whomever the nominee is going to be sight unseen so STFU!  This means YOU, Sen. Chris Murphy, D-CT.  Enough is enough!
  64. 2020 Wednesday C: In order to placate angry mobs of Black Lives Matter and Antifa goons, Uncle Ben’s rice is changing its name AND removing its iconic image.  The new name will be “Ben’s Original.”  So long, Ben, you and Aunt Jemima can now spend the rest of your days on vacation.  We love you!  Elsewhere, Louisville, Kentucky, continues bracing for possible mob violence once the Grand Jury’s report into the untimely demise of Breonna Taylor at the hands of city cops hits newsstands.  Look, we believe that had they NOT had a NO KNOCK WARRANT and had Taylor’s boyfriend not started slinging lead at the cops, she would be alive today, plain, and simple.  The boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, played a major role in this fiasco so folks, stop with the mob violence.   Update: The Grand Jury indicts Officer Brett Hankison on three counts of wanton endangerment.  We shall see what we shall see… Second update: Antifa and Black Lives Matter seen unloading riot gear from a U-Haul truck 15 minutes away from the grand jury site.  Trouble on the way- expect out of control violent mob riots by sundown.
  65. 2020 Wednesday D: Billionaire neo-leftist Michael Bloomberg, former candidate for the 2020 Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination finds himself in a brewing S-storm over his personal paying of the fines of 32,000 felons of color in exchange for them voting Democrat on November 3.  This is an example of a quid pro quo that might get the billionaire member of the #MeToo Club into legal trouble.  Go for it, Florida Department of Justice! 
  66. 2020 Wednesday E: Meanwhile, a U.S. Senate committee chaired by Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, finds both former Vice President “Pro-China Joe” Biden and his son, the erstwhile Hunter, culpable of wrongdoing in the Ukraine.  This alone should drive the senile elder Biden from the race and send his son to prison for engaging in corruption, self-enrichment, and possible crimes.  Finally, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom announces that by 2035, NO MORE GAS-FUELED cars and trucks will be sold.  He claims this will improve the environment of the state.  Question, Governor Newsom: where will the power for these vehicles originate?  Wind and solar farms?  You are trying to lay off massive taxes on renewable energy sources in November so WTF is wrong with you?

  70. 2020 Wednesday I: Sadly, famed Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers is dead at age 77.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson on his show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, reports that the Hearst Corporation (it would have to be the king of yellow journalism) is among the big billionaire donors to the mob violence we see going on around the country.  He also reports that scumbags such as Palestinian jihadi and misogynist Linda Sarsour is urging the young leftists to ‘burn it all down.’   He also reports that the city of Seattle, Washington, now is paying a pimp- a human trafficker- the sum of $150,000 per year to consult on how to keep the streets ‘safe.’
  71. 2020 Wednesday J: EVIL CHI-COM NEWSWe now know that a recent report condemns the Chi-Coms for their behavior in occupied Tibet, a Buddhist country and one they have kept imprisoned in their orbit for decades, enslaving the people, forcing them to surrender their culture, their language, and their ways under threat of violence and death.  The Chi-Coms swear this ‘not so, Joe,’ but we know the fascist government in Beijing is cruel, trying to force the Tibetan people to become ‘good Chinese.’  Time to start nuking the commies.
  72. 2020 Wednesday K: Update on Louisville, Kentucky, the violent, out-of-control Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs have shot and wounded two police officers, are running amok though the city, trying to storm the mayor’s home, the hospital where the injured cops are being treated, and threatening all manner of other atrocities such as murdering cops.  Chi-Coms, WE KNOW you are behind this anarchy, and you will indeed pay for your crimes.

  79. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– As all hell continues breaking loose down on the southern border, today is Day No. 182 for the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the mess and Day No. 89 since her singular visit to the border.  What the Biden regime did do, however, was to strip away the Border Patrol’s main asset- their horses.  After video appeared of Border Patrol agents trying to corral the Haitian Invasion going on down there while on horseback, the left immediately began screeching about RACISM and SLAVERY and everything else they love crowing about. Next, here are the numbers as presented by OAN, first the cost of caring for this riffraff for just this day: $508,967,648.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the invaders for the year 2021: $290,920,005,632.  Third, here is the number of illegals who crossed the border this year: 2,981,697.  Finally, here is the conservative low estimate of illegals living in the country now: 2,981,696. (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).
  80. 2021 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– As the border crisis continues going from bad to worse, the highly esteemed Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell said today that the ‘border crisis is a textbook example of failed leadership.’  In other Biden border catastrophe news, U.S. Special Envoy Daniel Foote- the man in charge of Haiti- threw in the towel and resigned over his boss, Joe Biden’s failed handling of the HAITIAN INVASION.  Speaking of the ongoing disaster that could be easily fixed if only the Biden regime was not committed to carrying out the REPLACEMENT THEORY- replacing American voters with the dregs of the Third World- Rep. Ralph Norman, R-SC 5th congressional district, said today that the Biden regime is ‘tone deaf’ on the border.

  85. : Political News I– In a national embarrassment, so-called ‘climate czar’ John F. Kerry says he is more worried about the Chi-Coms ‘doing their part’ fighting climate change than he is about their innumerable human rights abuses.  In other Democratic Party news, the Dems are going berserk as the bill they plan on pushing tomorrow to counter the Texas ban on abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected, Senator Susan Collins, R-ME, says she won’t support their bill.  The Dems are going into a tailspin, the Pro-Death losers.
  86. 2021 Thursday M: Political News II– In other pathetic Democratic Party news, after the White House said that it was looking for a private contractor to provide care for members of the HAITIAN INVASION in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the White House had to then rush out and say, “Oh, no, we aren’t going to send our beloved Haitian illegals to Gitmo.’  Wow.  Meanwhile, as things continue going from bad to worse for the Biden regime, the Wall Street Journal says that troubling questions regarding Hunter Biden’s art sales continue to increase.  Oh, say it ain’t so!  Rep. Guy Reschenthaler, R-PA 14th congressional district, said of Hunter Biden and the regime that ‘hypocrisy is rich when it comes to the first son.’  Next- and this is a shock to us as much as it is to country star Lee Greenwood, Joe Biden is going to remove the beloved entertainer from the Arts Council all because he performed for President Donald J. Trump.  WOW.  How flipping petty!  Finally, the feds are going to pay a Florida school district $150,000 because it refuses to follow “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis order banning mask mandates in the state’s public schools.  Wow to that, too.
  87. 2021 Thursday N: Sports News I– In tonight’s Thursday Night Football Game, the Carolina Panthers easily defeated the Houston Texans by a final score of 24-9.
  88. 2022 Friday: Observation of the Day On Tuesday, our nation hit a record never before seen in the history of the nation: 2 million illegal alien encounters on the U.S.-Mexico border and those are just the ones we’ve apprehended.  This is unsustainable, something we cannot permit and I am going to offer a solution.  Remember when the Saudis were offering high-priced boat tours along the coastline of Somalia?  About a decade or more ago, Somali pirates were wreaking havoc on commercial shipping and the navies of the world attempted to stop it.  However, maintaining naval and air assets in the area was costly and so they fell off as time progressed.  The Saudis would take their passengers aboard yachts and provide them with all manner of automatic weapons, ammo, and whatever else was required to kill pirates and then would like in wait, awaiting the inevitable speedboats full of crazed, drug-addled pirates parting the waves towards them.  Once within firing range, the passengers would light the f**king scum up, riddling the pirates with high-powered bullets and sending their boats to the bottom of the sea.  While some people called it ‘evil,’ others called it ‘necessary’ and over the last 5, 6, maybe even 7 years, we have heard little to nothing about ‘Somali pirates.’  Folks, let’s do something similar along the border.  At some point- and everyone understands this– we are going to have to begin shooting the invaders.  The longer we postpone the inevitable, the more it’s going to cost the American taxpayers.  I say, we begin running tours for people seeking to improve their shooting skills and to do what the f**king government will NOT do and that is to DEFEND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.  Hell, we might even allow the wealthiest customers to use vintage World War II tanks, imagine the revenues that would provide our cash-strapped government.  Let me know your opinion.  Thanks- Chef Kilgore Randalini.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

On April 12, 1988, Cheap Trick returned to fore with their next album- “Lap of Luxury”- their most successful since “Dream Police” of nearly a decade before.  Besides featuring Rick Nielsen (lead and rhythm guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitars, and synthesizers), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion), Tom Petersson (bass and backing vocals), had returned home.  The Epic label was determined that Cheap Trick was going to have a ‘number one hit’ seeing as how they had not had a bona fide hit in eons, the label demanded they bring in outside songwriters which must have been somewhat insulting to Rick Nielsen, the principal songwriter.  Still, they had a NUMBER ONE HIT- their ONLY number one- in “The Flame.”  Considered a controversial number in the history of the band because feelings towards it were mixed, it is a FABULOUS TUNE and we love it.  It resurrected the group and most fans are onboard with it.  Add to that the cover of Elvis Presley’s “Don’t Be Cruel” and the delightful “Ghost Town” and one can see why we give this album the ringing endorsement that we do.  Seek it out and add it to your ever-growing collection of the absolute best in rock music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[i] We began promoting the music of the Lovin’ Spoonful on Saturday, 14-September-2013 and concluded the presentation on Tuesday, 24-September-2013.  Please check them out and add them to your growing CD collection- they are one of the greats.

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

[iii] We hope to offer the music of Alice Cooper one day so please keep posted until we do.  We think you will appreciate them, especially the original band.

[iv] When we present the music of the Allman Brothers Band, we will present the music of Gov’t Mule.  Stay tuned for further developments.

[v] Not sure when we will promote the music of the Average White Band but hope to do it at some point within the next 25 years.  Stick with us as you will be among the first to know.

[vi] Barack Obama most likely was born in Kenya as many sources claim and therefore an illegal president.,

[vii] We won’t be doing the music of Shawn Mendes.  We only do serious musicians.

[viii] Sadly, little Ms. Greta Thunberg is a perfect example of an indoctrinated leftist, frightened into believing that CLIMATE CHANGE is something caused by humans.  Any person who has ever taken a university-level geography class understands that the Sun is the number one driver of all things to do with climate and on every planet in the Solar System that has one, every satellite that has one.  The amount (or lack) of solar flares, sunspots, and the intensity or lessening of the solar winds understands that these are the driving forces of climate change.  We can combat pollution and maintain a pristine environment, but we cannot control how hot or cool the summers are or vice versa what the winters are.  Stop scaring people you flipping left-wing climate activists!

Joe Biden does not operate from a position of altruism; no, every time we hear of billions going to Ukraine, billions going to mass monkeypox vaccine distribution, or billions going to fund his ‘cancer moonshot,’ one must know that billions skimmed off the top from those billions are going into the pockets of the BIG GUY and members of his corrupt, mafia-like family. Ye, gods, folks.

Joe Biden does not operate from a position of altruism; no, every time we hear of billions going to Ukraine, billions going to mass monkeypox vaccine distribution, or billions going to fund his ‘cancer moonshot,’ one must know that billions skimmed off the top from those billions are going into the pockets of the BIG GUY and members of his corrupt, mafia-like family.  Ye, gods, folks.

  56. 2016 Sunday: The United Russia Party- Vladimir Putin’s political party- wins big in the parliamentary elections winning 54-percent of all seats and installing his long-time crony, Dmitri Medvedev as prime minister.  What else is new?

  60. 2020 Friday: To the horror of the Chi-Coms and their vociferous protests, the Trump administration agrees to sell SEVEN big weapons systems including drones and seaborne smart mines to Taiwan.

Moving on, President Trump says that another $13 billion in aid to American farmers will go out next week. Next, the reward for the POS attempted assassin in Los Angeles, California, this past Sunday, in which a punk strode up to a police car in Compton and shot two L.A.

  61. 2020 Friday A: Dr. Tony Fauci says it’s highly likely we will see a vaccine for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu Chinese Virus Crisis sometime in October or November. Speaking of the Wuhan Waltz, “Pro-China Joe” Biden is pulling back from saying he would impose a national mask mandate. Poor old Joe, he has no clue what he is saying on any given day. When is someone going to charge Dr. Jill Biden with elder abuse? Speaking of “Gropin’ Joe,” Howie Kurtz on Fox News Channel noted that last night’s CNN ‘Town Hall’ with the former VP and Anderson Cooper was not even softball, that it was akin to “T-Ball,” noting that Trump received all manner of hateful questions in his earlier in the week while everyone treated Senile Old Joe with kid gloves. What a laugh. True what Howie said, however.

The president also signed a $11.6 billion aid package for the people of Puerto Rico, beset by corruption, mismanagement, and criminality on the part of their government.

  73. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 177 for the world-famous ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the southern border and Day No. 84 since her sole visit to the El Paso Sector for a photo op.  Anyhow, here are the numbers as presented by OAN today regarding the illegal alien crisis.  First, here is the cost for just this day- Saturday, September 18, 2021– $579,642,432.  Imagine all that money put to beneficial use such as helping homeless vets, the drug addicted, even American urban outdoorsmen.  Imagine what that could do for AMERICANS instead of the Third World’s detritus.  Wow.  Next, here is the amount of taxpayer money wasted on caring for the illegal alien invaders for the calendar year 2021: $285,511,221,248.  Third, here is the appalling TRUE number of illegals who have flowed across the southern border this year: 2,926,261.  Finally, here is the conservative estimate of illegal aliens living in the country, a number we believe is FAR TOO LOW: 36,926,260.

  74. 2021 Saturday G: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– After demanding that ALL employees submit to Joe Biden’s illegal mandate of getting the Chi-Com vaccine or else, 125 employees at Indiana University walk off the job.  Good for you.  When this winds its way through the courts, everyone who has lost their job will be paid for every single hour they have been off the job.   We have seen this before as people wrongly terminated in the professional foodservice industry or who are forced off the job- wrongly- can get some stunning payouts that can, on occasion, bankrupt a business.  Joe Biden- careful with those mandates because the American people love FREEDOM.

  76. 2022 Sunday: F**king Joe Biden might not be as senile as many believe.  Earlier this week, the man who showered with his young daughter now wants to send BILLIONS of nonexistent dollars into a ‘cancer moonshot’ much like President John Fitzgerald Kennedy launched the program to put Americans on the moon.  Every single time we hear that slobbering, minor-attracted individual announces plans to send billions of dollars into the Ukraine, into monkeypox mass vaccinations, into forcing every American to join a labor union, or into fighting cancer, the question is this: HOW BIG is the percentage going into the pockets of the BIG GUY?  Joe Biden is not doing any of this because of altruism; no, he is doing it because he knows how to skim money off the top and to then divert it into the coffers of his corrupt family.  The man is a criminal, a possible felon, not just for his creepy fondling of young girls and his sniffing of women’s hair and his groping of their behinds, but because he has become a master criminal that dwarfs the criminality of anyone else in elective office, even that of Mitch McConnell.  Let us not forget that “Cocaine Mitch’s” father-in-law was sending South American cocaine to Europe via his shipping company’s fleet of vessels which is why the Turtle has the moniker that he does.  We must neuter this man’s ‘presidency’ just as we must neuter the Democrats’ hopes of toppling our constitution-based representational republic which is NOT a democracy.  Friends, let me know what you think this week, I thank you for joining me each day and will see you again in six months.  Chef James “Jimmy” Hall.

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

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next album from Cheap Trick was a disappointment to many in that the band was evolving and had changed producers. “All Shook Up” came out on October 24, 1980 and spawned no big radio hits which was unexpected. Longtime producer Tom Werman was out, and Beatles producer George Martin was in.  Once again, the band has the same quartet of Rick Nielsen (guitars, backing vocals), Robin Zander (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Tom Petersson (bass, backing vocals), and Bun E. Carlos (drums and percussion) although following the release, bassist Petersson would leave the group due to overwork.  The band was on the road around the clock- doing at least 300 shows per year and recording albums in between.  This album would not receive the same praise or achieve the same sales as its predecessor, “Dream Police.”  Still, as completists, we must own every shred of music produced by a favorite band.  Seek it out and enjoy, we think you will be glad you did.

Bush canceled a once-celebrated civilian nuclear cooperation deal with Russia.  The reason for this move is because of Russia’s August invasion that same year of neighboring Georgia, a move that caused it to absorb several ‘break-away’ provinces, South Ossetia, and Abkhazia.       
  51. 2009 Tuesday: Justice Sonia Sotomayor ceremonially took her seat at the Supreme Court in front of a packed courtroom that included both President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
  52. 2010 Wednesday: Mexican Marines arrest seven gunmen they believe responsible for the murder of 72 illegal immigrants at Tamaulipas, Mexico, awhile back.

  56. 2014 Monday: Many children across ten states have undergone hospitalization due to Enterovirus, EV-D68; children with asthma are particularly at risk for complications.  The virus reportedly has found new life in the U.S. thanks to President Barack Obama[v] allowing Third World Central American children to flood the U.S. from across the Mexican border.  Elsewhere, Ray Rice was let go by the Baltimore Ravens and suspended indefinitely by the NFL after the release of a video in which the running back struck his fiancée, Janay Palmer, in an elevator in February 2014.
  57. 2015 Tuesday: Prime Minister David Cameron announces that a recent drone strike in Syria took out two British citizens serving in the Islamic State.  Both men—Reyad Khan and Ruhul Amin—died in the British drone strike that occurred on August 21, 2015.  The duo had made recruitment videos for the ISIS scumbags.
  58. 2016 Thursday: NASA launched its OSIRIS-REX space probe today, destined to rendezvous with the asteroid 101955 Bennu in 2018.  It would arrive on scene on December 03, 2018.  Once there, it was to collect mineral samples from the surface and if all goes well will return to Earth orbit and eventual landing in Utah at a military facility sometime in 2023. 
  59. 2017 Friday: Hurricane Irma regained Category 5 status, battering Cuba with 160-mph wind, and taking aim on the Miami area; the death toll across the Caribbean climbed past 20 after the storm ravaged islands including St. Martin, St. Barts, St. Thomas, Barbuda, and Anguilla.  In one of the country’s largest evacuations, officials in Florida told more than 5 million people to leave their homes ahead of the hurricane; parts of interstates 75 and 95 northbound were bumper-to-bumper.
  60. 2018 Saturday:  In Egypt, a high court hands down 700 sentences, including 75 death sentences, for a violent Islamist protest put on by the Muslim Brotherhood at Rabaa al-Adawaya Square on August 14, 2013.  As always, the protesters claim it was a ‘peaceful sit-in,’ but they began running amok and General Abdel Fattah al-Sissi responded with troops and killed loads of violent rioters for which, he deserves commendation.  Al-Sissi now is president of Egypt, and the country is in peace.   
  61. 2019 Sunday: Why Marvel would be promoting homosexuality is beyond us, but the mayor of Rio De Janeiro banned a comic book in which two men were swapping spit.  However, the Brazilian Supreme Court overturned the mayor’s ban.  Sad.  Elsewhere, tensions increase between India and Pakistan as Prime Minister Modi continues pushing his ‘make Hinduism great again’ agenda, what they call Hindutva.
  62. 2020 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump criticized the top Pentagon brass today when he said that they ‘engage in useless wars in order to boost defense contractors’ profits.’  This is true and has been true since President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Republican, warned the country about the ‘military-industrial complex,’ meaning there is loads of money for everyone involved in procuring and fulfilling defense contracts.  Military profiteers are the most shameful, disgusting people because they have no problem sending your loved ones to wage wars we never seem to win anymore.  Hence, money continues flowing around the clock.  God bless you, President Trump.  Speaking of President Trump, he is visiting Florida and North Carolina today while “Pro-China Joe Biden” is conducting a remote town hall somewhere.  Speaking of both Trump and Biden, a poll conducted by USA Today and Suffolk University says that ‘people expect that Trump will crush Biden in their debates by a 47-to-41 percent margin.’  Friends, it is bigger than that, people just don’t want to answer these polls.
  63. 2020 Tuesday A: Fascinatingly, Democrats and anti-Trumpers are beginning to recoil from Jeffrey Goldberg’s article in the once-staid magazine, The Atlantic, a story the magazine published on September 03, 2020.  Mr. Goldberg- quoting the usual suspects- anonymous sources- claimed he was told (and to her discredit, Jennifer Griffin of Fox News Channel backed him up) that in 2018 on a visit to France to visit U.S. World War I military cemeteries, President Trump supposedly called the fallen ‘losers’ and ‘suckers’ for having served and worse, for having died.  Both Goldberg and his magazine got about three solid days of Trump-bashing but now, people are pulling back from it because NO has the balls to step forward (where are you, Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, you pansy) and anyone who once supported the claims are quickly withdrawing from the claims in fear of being made liars- which they are.  President Trump may have slandered former Sen. John McCain, but McCain was an anti-Trumper from the start and the man who originally helped Hillary produce the “Trump-Russia Collusion” bogus theory.  We think McCain was a POS, too and believe that Mr. Goldberg, like most liberal ‘news media’ (aka Fake News) is full of crap, stinking, festering crap and U.S. military personnel know it.
  64. 2020 Tuesday B: We learn that over the Labor Day weekend in Chicago, 53 people were shot, 10 killed, including an 8-year-old girl.  Elsewhere, in New York City, at least 10 people were shot, including a six-year-old child who had both legs shattered when an errant drive-by fusillade of lead ripped through them.   Elected Democrats hem and haw over the numbers of deaths via gun violence and do everything possible to blame President Donald J. Trump for the crimes in THEIR locales.  Portland, Oregon, saw more violence over the Labor Day weekend and people are begging for it to stop yet Democratic leaders lack the balls to do something about it.  Time to bring in ex-Black Water Mercs and have them take out the scumbags, do what the Columbian people did when they finally could stand drug lord Pablo Escobar’s crimes any longer.  Fight fire with worse fire.
  65. 2020 Tuesday C: Rochester, N.Y., Police Chief La’Ron Singletary announces that he and his entire command structure are resigning over events surrounding the recent death of black PCP arrestee Daniel Prude who died in custody following a spit hood placed over his head approximately one week before his death.  Elsewhere, another black police chief- this one in Dallas- puts in her resignation papers.  Reneé Hall handed in her walking papers, effective November 2020.  Elsewhere, in Washington, D.C., the Pelosi Mob continues fighting the targeted COVID-19 bill put forth by the Republicans.  Don’t worry, Madam Speaker, WE KNOW who is responsible for NO money going to those who need it, and we won’t forget.
  66. 2020 Tuesday D: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole– 27,392,203 confirmed cases, UP by 191,260 cases, 897,713 confirmed deaths, UP by 7,873 deaths, and 18,337,409 confirmed recoveries, UP by 217,307 recoveries.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 6,411,392 confirmed cases, UP by 16,259 new cases, 192,451 confirmed deaths, UP by 405 new deaths, and 3,450,818 confirmed recoveries, UP by 20,996 new recoveries.  We believe if the authorities would share the TRUE percentages of deaths per number of those with the disease- instead of making everyone who might have the Wuhan Flu in their system but did not cause their deaths- known, there would be LESS fear.  It is also clear that misreporting the news has Americans believing at least 30 million Americans- OR MORE- have died from Xi Jinping’s Bat Flu which is not true which was said a week ago, so it shows misinformation is doing its job among the gullible and ill-informed citizenry.
  67. 2020 Tuesday E: COVID-19 Statistics in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 742,833 confirmed cases, 13,764 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 9,957 confirmed cases, 86 confirmed deaths, and 3,028 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 80,623 confirmed cases, 2,044 confirmed deaths, but like California, the incline-headed governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, the Empire State: 444,751 confirmed number of cases, 32,971  confirmed number of deaths, and like most other Blue States, NO number of confirmed number of recoveries.   The governor of New York, the drooling moron Andrew Cuomo now is trying to blame President Donald J. Trump for all the deaths when he is the one who sent Bat Flu-infected people into rest homes where the most vulnerable people are, uh, we mean, were.
  68. 2020 Tuesday F: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 27,500.89, DOWN 632.42 points (-2.25%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 10,847.69, DOWN 465.44 points (-4.11%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,331.84, DOWN 95.12 points (-2.78%).  The price of GOLD is $1,939.10 per troy oz., -4.10 (-0.21%) while the price of SILVER is $26.80 per troy ounce, -0.191 (-0.71%).  The price of PLATINUM is $902.00 per troy oz, -8.30 (-0.91%) while the price of COPPER is $3.01 per pound, -0.0155 (-0.51%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,273.50 per troy oz., -10.50 (-0.4%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $36.61 per barrel, -0.15 (-0.41%).  Today, COFFEE is $131.65 per metric ton, -1.10 (-0.83).  As for currency, one U.S. dollar = 6.84 communist Chinese yuan.  By contrast, one U.S. dollar = 0.85 euros.  Communist China manipulates its currency.

[vii]   
  70. 2021 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 352,181 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 51,897 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  71. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,446,689 confirmed cases, 66,657 confirmed deaths, and 2,328,394 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,424,388 confirmed cases, 46,977 confirmed deaths, and 2,371,324 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 69,144 confirmed cases, 626 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 588,829 confirmed cases, 6,807 confirmed deaths, and 252,976 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., U.S. Veteran Affairs: they have 321,227 confirmed cases, 13,977 confirmed deaths, and 294,990 confirmed recoveries. [viii]  
  72. 2021 Wednesday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,117,596 confirmed cases, 7,205 confirmed deaths, and 1,026,173 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).   Let us look at one other country- Wallis and Futuna, 205th country on the list: 445 cases of the virus, 7 confirmed deaths and 438 confirmed recoveries. [ix]     
  73. 2021 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,031.00, DOWN 68.93 points (-0.20%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 15,286.64, DOWN 87.69 points (-0.57%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,514.07, DOWN 5.96 points (-0.13%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $69.28 per barrel, +0.93 (+1.36%).  The price of GOLD is $1,791.70 per troy oz., -6.80 (-0.38%) while the price of SILVER is $24.00 per troy ounce, -0.37 (-1.53%).  The price of PLATINUM is $975.10 per troy oz, -20.80 (-2.09%) while the price of COPPER is $4.23 per pound, -0.05 (-1.18%).

  74. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have dropped to $4.396 per gallon, $3.013 in Florida, $4.073 in Hawaii, and $3.885 in Washington state. [xiv]    Let us look at one other location- Alaska: $3.700.  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- Slovakia: $6.306 per U.S. Gallon.[xv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,737,633,538,711 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xvi]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Sweden, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Australia with $40 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.
  75. 2021 Wednesday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– The Taliban- ever mindful of the demands of the U.S. for an inclusive government that respects women, gays, and religious minorities (YEAH!  RIGHT!) has trotted out its new ALL MALE JIHADIST government that will- interestingly enough- be sworn in on Saturday, September 11, 2021, at around the time the first hijacked airliner slammed into the World Trade Center.  Those scumbags have learned much in the past 20 years and even more hilarious is the fact that one of the new government’s members is a scalawag long wanted by the FBI for committing acts of terrorism.  It will be fascinating to watch these scumbags attend their first United Nations General Assembly meeting.  Wow.  In other Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News, President Donald J. Trump recently said that ‘we rebuilt the U.S. military’ and that ‘they (Joe Biden’s regime) gave it to the Taliban.’  He’s right.
  76. 2021 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Today is Day No. 168 for the world-famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the disaster along the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 75 since her SOLE VISIT to the quietest sector of said border, the El Paso Sector.  Next, here are the stats as compiled by One America News regarding the calamity going on down there and around the country thanks to all the illegal aliens swarming into the country.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for all the riffraff flooding the country: $519,584,096.  Imagine what that money could do to help Americans?  Second, here is the amount of money shelled out for this year alone for caring for all these noncitizens: $274,492,260,352.  Next, here is the estimate for the number of illegal aliens who have swarmed into our country for the calendar year 2021: 2,813,325.  Fourth and final, here is the conservative low estimate for the numbers of illegals currently inside the United States: 36,813,324.  Wow.  Round them up, deport them all, build the wall, and lay in minefields and foo gas pits along the entire southern border.  Next, use sniper teams to take out the human traffickers and then leave their corpses to rot as warnings to others who would follow in their footsteps.  (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).
  77. 2021 Wednesday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The Ministry of State Security (we assume) arrested the organizers of the annual remembrance of Tiananmen Square massacre.  Guess there won’t be one anytime soon.   Guess they will be joining others in western China’s gulags.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing is now banning private tutors from teaching online classes.  Elsewhere, Mexico joins the Pro-Death countries when its Supreme Court decriminalizes abortion and immediately, Pro-Death advocates begin demanding ALL persons suffering jail terms for abortion crimes be released.   Next, protests break out in El Salvador over the new law that makes Bitcoin legal tender in that Central American hellhole.  The citizens of that country claim that Bitcoin is too unstable.
  78. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– The Palestinians are up to no good yet again.  Once again, they are lofting fuel-soaked balloons into the skies and sending them over Israel from the Gaza Strip where these bottom-feeding scumbags hope they will cause mischief by starting fires.  The Israeli Defense Forces have been launching retaliatory airstrikes and drone strikes on these sub-human animals.  Elsewhere, ahead of some jihadist trials in France, the government is increasing security everywhere.
  79. 2021 Wednesday J: Covid-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and-Authoritarianism News– A new poll says that 72-percent of American workers would quit their jobs if their employers forced them to get one of the Chi-Com virus vaccinations.’  No wonder the Dems are allowing the Third World to flood the country.  They are replacement workers.  You see, Dems secretly love scabs over union workers.  Look at what they did to highly paid Keystone XL Pipeline workers.  Unemployed with a stroke of feeble Joe Biden’s pen.
  80. 2021 Wednesday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.51 (2) AstraZeneca $57.07 (3) Johnson & Johnson $171.90 (4) BioNTech $336.24 (5) Moderna $422.90.  Don’t forget, faithful readership- the Deep State apparatchiks, the elected politicians, and members of the industrial-military-political complex invest heavily in both these companies and the ones below because of the massive return on their money.  When you vote to send X amount of dollars to a pharmaceutical company that manufactures vaccines for which, they cannot be sued for adverse reactions and side effects no matter how debilitating or devastating, you can see the money-go-round in action.
  81. 2021 Wednesday L: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $82.87 (2) General Dynamics: $204.40 (3) Boeing: $211.38 (4) Lockheed Martin: $351.46 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $360.40.  Military stocks are big money-makers, especially when leaving behind $90 billion of U.S. military equipment in a terrorist hellhole like Afghanistan because it means replacement equipment and weapons will have to be made and thus you see, the money-go-round from Washington, D.C., to these and other similar companies who then make ‘campaign donations’ (bribes) back to the politicians.  This is why President Donald J. Trump was such a threat to the existing Deep State.
  82. 2021 Wednesday M: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Joe Biden continues stumbling about following yesterday’s visit to observe damage caused by Hurricane Ida.  People all around him as he plodded on like the senile old fool that he is down the streets were yelling at him, mocking him, accusing him of abandoning and even killing fellow Americans in the disastrous evacuation out of Afghanistan.  Wow.  And the old coot believes he is the most popular president in history (fake president, that is).  Even more embarrassing is the fact that today we learned that members of Joe Biden’s White House regime MUTE his microphone on numerous occasions so fearful are they that the declining codger is going to go off script.   Wow.   Take, for instance, Joe Biden has been bragging about the Stock Market and taking jabs at President Donald J. Trump.  Uh, the markets have not been good lately and old Joe is only around 54,000 deaths shy of the number of COVID-19 deaths that occurred when his predecessor was in office.  Wow.
  83. 2021 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is calling for an additional $24 billion for use in relief funds and another $6 billion atop the already over-bloated ‘budget reconciliation’ bill to help get Afghan evacuees settled around the country, enrolled in the ranks of the Democratic Party, and on the road to citizenship.   However, former Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Chad Wolf says that ‘corners have been cut’ during the hurried evacuation of ‘Afghan translators and allies’ into the United States.  Elsewhere, the Biden regime is demanding that ex-Trump military officials RESIGN NOW from various military advisory boards.  Russ Vought, however, is having none of this bullying crap and has said, “NO.”
  84. 2021 Wednesday O: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– A rally in support of the unfairly imprisoned Capitol Hill rioters is set to occur on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.  Let these people out on bail at least, you let human fecal matter in Antifa, and the BOGUS Black Lives Matter run amok and then get out of jail before the day is done and who then vanish into the night.
  85. : Political News I– “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis[xvii] blows off claims he is going to run for president in 2024.  (Note- the liberal news media, i.e., fake news, is trying to sow division between the governor and President Donald J. Trump.  If Trump runs, DeSantis will support him if not become his vice president or will run in 2028.  Count on it).  Meanwhile, in 2022 news, the Democrats know how to pick ‘em, don’t they: Milwaukee city Alderman Chantia Lewis, who is running to get Senator Ron Johnson’s seat, found herself charged with embezzlement and other crimes.  Wow.  Let’s see if the Dems somehow manage to save her from the chopping block. 
  86. 2021 Wednesday Q: Political News II– Conservative Ohio U.S. Senate candidate and author J.D. Vance is back on Twitter after having his account ‘mistakenly shut down’ by the regime of Jack Dorsey.   He is running to replace outbound Senator Rob Portman, RINO.  Next, ‘enough seemingly is enough’ what with the New York Post demanding that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci be FIRED for having lied about his role in funding the Chi-Coms’ development of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  Moving on, Nobelist and senior left-wing economist Joseph Stiglitz is calling for the termination of Jerome Powell, the head of the U.S. Federal Reserve.  Finally, President Donald J. Trump is preparing to endorse former aide to Rep. Liz Cheney, R-WY At-Large district, Wyoming attorney Harriet Hageman to take down her former boss in 2022.  
  87. 2021 Wednesday R: Political News III– Everyone knew it was going to happen and thus, it happened: ‘civil rights groups’ are suing the Lone Star State over its new, expansive voting rights law.  Uh, okay.  Next, Tripwire Interactive CEO John Gibson acceded to a firestorm of tweets after he released a Pro-Life tweet.  Good God, folks, what the hell is wrong with these people?  Whatever happened to freedom of expression?  Oh, wait, being WOKE means NO FREEDOM!
  88. 2021 Wednesday S: U.S. House of Representatives News I– Several House members have introduced a bill restricting the CISA director to a single five-year term.  CISA stands for Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency and the current head is Director Christopher C. Krebs who was sworn in during the Donald J. Trump presidency.  Elsewhere, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st congressional district, says that the House GOP is going to launch a ‘full-scale probe’ into the mess in Afghanistan caused by Joe Biden and upper members of his crumbling regime.
  89. 2021 Wednesday T: California State News– As the hours count down to the people of California being able to recall failed Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom next Tuesday, some people are doubtful about the success of the recall.  Even President Donald J. Trump says sadly enough that the Golden State Dems will ‘probably steal the election.’  We hope that there are far more people committed to removing this reprobate, but we understand what President Trump is saying.  If water pipes burst in various counting sites and all counting halts mid-stride until sometime the next day, then yes, Governor Newsom is going to remain dictator, uh, governor of California.  The Dems are running one suppression poll after another, ‘oh, 52.8-percent of California voters want “Nazi” Newsom to stay compared to 43.1-percent who want him to go,’ please.  “Nazi” Newsom can spin whatever he likes but people on ALL SIDES of the political divide want this man GONE.  Gray Davis- the last governor to be recalled- would be preferable to this POS who lacks talent, skill, and intelligence to run the state.  Even Governor Jerry Brown would be a welcome return but hey, we think Larry Elder is going to be moving into the gubernatorial mansion next Tuesday evening.  (Note- even Dems in D.C. are watching this closely.  They are curious as to the ‘political clout’ ‘Beijing Joe’ Biden has.  We don’t believe he has any).
  90. 2021 Wednesday U: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– After one hundred years of standing tall and proud in Richmond, Virginia, the statue of General Robert E. Lee, CSA, comes down and from what we have heard, it’s being cut into pieces.  The dimwits are celebrating the demise of the statue, but General Lee was one of America’s most gifted generals.  Back in the 1860s, state’s rights were all important and when General Lee was faced with either making war on his home state or defending it, he resigned his commission in the U.S. Army and went to fight for the Confederate States Army.  It was what it was, and we must be forgiving of all if we are to heal as a nation and to learn from the mistakes of the past.
  91. 2021 Wednesday V: Observation of the Day– Currently, the Democrats in California are behaving like the French nobility did prior to the eruption of the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, what with blowing off the threat to Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  They are slinging all manner of mud and yuck at Larry Elder, labeling him the ‘black face of white supremacism’ and how he is ‘to the right of President Donald J. Trump’ which would not be a dreadful thing.  Look, “Nazi” Newsom has smacked the citizens of this state down for the last time, enjoying fine meals at the French Laundry Restaurant while denying the people who elected him the same right.  We have watched our state destroyed, restaurants and other businesses closed, the denial of church attendance, and rising crime.  By next Monday, the suppression polls will claim 95.9-percent of Californians want Gavin to remain in office which everyone knows is little more than bullshit.  We are not saying it’s going to be easy because the Dems will pull out all stops but having losers like Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, DS-MA, “Kooky Kamala” Harris, and other feculent pieces of crap come here and campaign here in SAFE AREAS is crazy.  NO one in this state likes those people so they are only making things worse for little “Nazi” Newsom.  We have our fingers crossed.
  92. 2021 Wednesday W: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3593 what with a $16 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 04, 05, 07, 25, 38, and Mega 02.  Out of 92,219 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers BUT NO MEGA for a prize of $33,622.  The winning ticket was sold at Chevron on 5609 Stine Road, Bakersfield, CA 93313.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #882 with a jackpot of $388 million up for grabs: 09, 22, 41, 47, 61, and Power 21.  Out of 79,126 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $18,730.
  93. 2021 Wednesday X: Friends, please stick around and we’ll discover together whatever the hell the Democrats are doing to rape our nation this day.  There is hope, however, my friends, when a ‘president’ loses college-aged students who chant “F**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden, f**k Joe Biden,’ you know you are going down in flames and what is even better, is that everyone who supports the loser or who built the loser up is going down with the loser.  I cannot wait to see Nancy Pelosi booted out on her ass.  Woman to woman, YOU got to go, ‘Evil Nancy!’  Chef Goldie McNamara.
  94. 2022 Thursday: Friends, do not drink the Kool-Aid on ‘renewable energies’ and on electric vehicles, the infamous EVs.  California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom, one of the all-time worst political hacks the world has ever seen, is begging and cajoling Californians NOT to use electricity between the hours of 4 PM to 9 PM and for sure do not plug in your electric car due to the strain on a faltering power grid.  Without fossil fuels and nuclear power, PG&E cannot supply the power necessary to run the nation’s most populous state in a ‘First World’ country.  By 2035, sales of gas-powered cars will no longer be permitted IF we fail to vote out as many Democrats as possible in November and beyond.  Besides, here is the scam of EVs: besides being costlier than the normal gas-powered vehicle, charging them is estimated to cost $100 per charge when one pulls up to a power station.  NO longer will they be ‘cheap or economical’ what with charging fees and battery replacement costs.  What the Democrats want is to end private ownership of vehicles within a decade, two at the most.  Lower income people will be forced into taking public transit due to the constraint of economics while the middle class will call in to have a self-driving, government-owned vehicle show up at their homes to take them on their errands.  Those who can afford it will be able to call in to central dispatch in one’s area and a self-driving vehicle will take you in private where you need to go.  Others with lesser means will be able to call a carpool heading in the same direction they are.  The government will thus be able to monitor where one goes, charge them a flat fee, a charging fee, and a mileage fee all of which it will deduct from one’s banking account via automatic debit as you go.  If one must travel a longer distance and want to use a private vehicle, it will be akin to the old ‘pony express,’ at the end of each battery charge, one will arrive at a government-run lot where the driver will pick up the next car for the next distance.  The government will debit one’s account every mile, every charge, and eventual destination.  In essence, NO one other than the wealthy and the government will own vehicles and theirs will most likely be gasoline-powered while everyone else must rely on EVs and a crumbling power grid.  Leftists will hail it as ‘progress’ and everyone else will label it loss of freedom, liberty, and independence.  What’s more, even though you do NOT own the car, you will still have to pay for automobile insurance.  This is New Age Communism in my book, rather like “Brave New World” by Aldous Huxley.  Let me know what you think- Chef James “JT” Tobiason.

[i] We promoted the music of the Association beginning on Wednesday, 25-September-2013 through Monday, 07-October-2013.  These guys were amazing, we hope you will check them out and consider adding them to your growing collection of albums and CDs.

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

[iii] The Atlanta Rhythm Section is another awesome American band, one we sure as heck hope to promote when and if we return to doing music again.

[iv] We are not sure when we will present the music of the Cars but if you are still with us when we celebrate our second decade of activity, you may see them then so please, stay with us.  We thank you.

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

246. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 03, 2022

I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible, much-desired outcome this evening. Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow? He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.

Trump is beginning the process of slashing federal funding to four largely Democratic Party-held cities- Seattle, Portland, Oregon, New York City, and Washington D.C. until they reestablish and enforce law and order.  In response to this, New York Governor Andrew “I’m a Moron” Cuomo tells POTUS ‘YOU CAN’T COME TO NEW YORK- OR ELSE.’ Finally, Facebook announces it will ban all political ads one week out from the November elections in the hope it can prevent Russian disinformation from swaying voters to vote ‘correctly,’ meaning for “Gropin’ Joe” Biden and not for President Donald J. Trump.
  64. 2020 Thursday A: California state Senator Scott Wiener sends SB 145 legislation to Governor Gavin Newsom’s desk for his signature.  The bill will give judges ‘discretion’ in sentencing pedophiles and will lower penalties for child rape provided the difference in age between the so-called ‘willing child’ and the rapist is 10 years of less.  Hence, a 20-year-old sexual deviate can rape a 10-year-old child either anally or orally by claiming the youngster was a ‘willing participant’ in his rape.  Someone somewhere, do something to Senator Wiener- within the scope of the law.  California is indeed Sodom and Gomorrah. God, wipe out the state!
  65. 2020 Thursday B: Speaker Pelosi continues screeching that she ‘was framed’ for Hairgate, promising to get even with those who ‘set her up’ and was able to intimidate the hairdresser who gave her and wash and blowout into saying that ‘yes, she was setup.’  What is clear here is that Speaker Pelosi knows she is in the wrong because she canceled her weekly press conference today as she fears having to answer questions about this scandalous behavior.

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 346,217 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- mentally deficient old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  Currently, Joe is shy 57,861 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…  
  71. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 4,408,674 confirmed cases, 66,321 confirmed deaths, and 2,306,538 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 3,354,253 confirmed cases, 58,239 confirmed deaths, and 2,347,545 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 65,890 confirmed cases, 613 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 577,810 confirmed cases, 6,758 confirmed deaths, and 251,217 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Guam: they have 11,106 confirmed cases, 151 confirmed deaths, and 9,126 confirmed recoveries. [xi]  
  72. 2021 Friday C: Foreign COVID Stats of the Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 1,101,971 confirmed cases, 7,129 confirmed deaths, and 1,009,009 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other country- Tanzania, 200th country on the list: 1,367 cases of the virus, 50 confirmed deaths and 183 confirmed recoveries. [xii]

[xvi]        
  74. 2021 Friday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.397 per gallon, $3.021 in Florida, $4.075 in Hawaii, and $3.891 in Washington state. [xvii]    Let us look at one other location- Puerto Rico: $3.558.  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- Montenegro: $6.057 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,719,043,045,883 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xix]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Philippines, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates with $32 billion of U.S. national debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position.
  75. 2021 Friday F: Afghanistan Crisis and Collapse News– As the Chinese move into Afghanistan, Rep. Devin Nunes, R-CA 22nd CD, says they are going to find it hard going.  We mentioned this a while back because there are so many disparate groups in Afghanistan that it will be extremely easy for them to come into conflict with the Chinese.  Muslims despise communists and the former Soviet Union understands this extremely well.   When the Taliban or ISIS-K or the warrior tribes begin attacking Chinese infrastructure and killing their people, it will be problematic for the bottom line in Beijing.  The Chinese will have to respond heavy-handedly, and we suspect they could find themselves embroiled in their own lengthy war, perhaps 40 years?
  76. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Greetings, friends- today is Day No. 163 for the globally famous ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 70 since her one and only visit to the region.  Otherwise, she has been doing everything imaginable to avoid doing her job.  What a shame.  According to One America News network, here are the astounding numbers for both the cost of caring for millions of illegal aliens and the conservative estimate of the numbers of illegals within the United States thanks to the absent Biden regime.  First, here is the cost for just this day of caring for the illegal aliens: $493,569,376.  Next, here is the cost of caring for the refuse of the Third World for calendar year, 2021: $268,986,777,600.  Third, here is the number for illegals who have swarmed across our border for just this year: 2,756,899.  Fourth and final, here is the CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE for illegal aliens residing in our country, swamping hospitals, overrunning schools, sucking away at the teats of the American taxpayers 24/7/365: 36,756,900.  You know what we say- the numbers are closer to 75-to-100 million of the scumbags.  Let’s round them up, throw them aboard southbound planes, trains, automobiles, trucks, and even tramp steamers and send them back to whence the f**k they came. (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- more than $54 million has been donated to Texas to continue the building of its border wall.  Excellent.
  77. 2021 Friday H: Foreign News-Overseas News I– The People’s Republic of China announced today that it is going to retain its embassy in Kabul and will provide economic assistance to the Taliban.  They will also work at building oil pipelines from Iran through the so-called “Graveyard of Empires” to western China.  In other overseas news, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga is set to resign as the end of the month following a collapse in his poll numbers.  His battle against COVID-19 has not been as good as anticipated and he is doing the honorable thing as Joe Biden should in the United States.   New elections will occur soon.
  78. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News II– North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is setting harsher measures regarding COVID-19 after shunning vaccine help from neighboring China.  Uh-oh.  Loads of people are going to die.  Meanwhile, China is going to scrub all effeminate men from its airwaves.  Perhaps we should do that here in the United States? 
  79. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– A new report says that 83-percent of recent blood donations ALL show evidence of COVID-19 antibodies.  Meanwhile, as the U.S. government continues pushing forward with demanding COVID-19 booster shots (again, follow the money), the European Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says there is “NO evidence of a need for a third shot.”  The FDA said today that it’s going to take additional time to determine whether a need for a booster (or a never-ending series of booster) shots before ordering them.  Still, if and when we go down this crazy road, Pfizer will be the one pumping out the boosters.  (Note- everyone begin investing in Pfizer stock.  NOW).
  80. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Lockdowns-Restrictions-and Authoritarianism News– A new report suggests that ‘unvaccinated cadets at the U.S. Border Patrol Academy could soon be booted unless they roll up their arms for the jab.  Wow.  Next, crazy Dr. Ashish Jha says, ‘it’s not crazy to think there is a need for a third round of COVID-19 booster shots.’  Dr. Jha, do us a favor: shut the hell up.  WHY do we need COVID-19 vaccines much less a damned booster shot when the vaccines contain an extinct virus?  The original virus is long since gone, we are moving through one variant after another such as the Delta, the Lambda, and now the notorious ‘MU.’  Stop spreading bullshit, please.  Meanwhile, a new Rasmussen poll says that viewers of conservative news channels have better understanding of the risks associated with the vaccines or of death facing them whether they get the vaccines or don’t get the vaccines.
  81. 2021 Friday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer $46.84 (2) AstraZeneca $58.83 (3) Johnson & Johnson $175.04 (4) BioNTech $334.30 (5) Moderna $416.70.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today: -(1) Pfizer $46.60 (2) AstraZeneca $58.63 (3) Johnson & Johnson $172.93 (4) BioNTech $358.48 (5) Moderna $382.22.  See the trend?  FOLLOW THE MONEY!
  82. 2021 Friday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (follow the Money 2) News– (1) Raytheon: $83.65 (2) General Dynamics: $202.46 (3) Boeing: $218.17 (4) Lockheed Martin: $356.00 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $365.93.  Here is what the stock prices were a week ago today:  Raytheon: $85.40 (2) General Dynamics: $199.72 (3) Boeing: $221.66 (4) Lockheed Martin: $361.99 (5) Northrup-Grumman: $364.99.  Remain vigilant.  Invest in companies you believe in because our elected leaders and the denizens of the Deep State are investing in these companies and in the pharmaceutical stocks.  FOLLOW THE MONEY!
  83. 2021 Friday N: 2020 Election Audit– People are beginning to inquire as to WHEN the Arizona 2020 Election audit results are going to be released?  So far, NO WORD as to when which is leading some people to speculate that Attorney General Mark Brnovich is sitting atop them because the RINO has been bought off by Democrat allies.  We will keep you posted.  Meanwhile, the Badger State is ordering its own 2020 Election Audit as Pennsylvania prepares to do.
  84. 2021 Friday O: President Donald J. Trump News– Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump endorsed famed NFL star Hershel Walker to defeat freshman Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA, in November 2022.  Excellent choice.  Speaking of the President, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th CD, says he believes that President Trump will be running for a third term in 2024. 
  85. 2021 Friday P: Joe Biden News I– Republican senators are demanding feeble old Joe Biden provide information on the numbers of Americans he abandoned behind the lines in Afghanistan.  Next, bowing to pressure from the American people, Joe Biden released an executive order ordering the FBI to release all relevant information concerning September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the role the Saudis played in it.  We shall see what happens.  Finally, Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel reported tonight that financial aid will make its way to the Taliban because they have promised to combat CLIMATE CHANGE.  How about that?  (Joe, we’ll fight CLIMATE CHANGE, too, by stop eating gaseous vegetables.  How do we get some of this easy money?)
  86. 2021 Friday Q: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– Crazy old Joe Biden is lying yet again, this time saying how he ‘spent a lot of time at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, following the white supremacist attack on the place of worship back on October 27, 2018.’  Now, Joe believes he was Donald J. Trump because President Trump is the man who visited the site and met with the rabbi, not senile old Joe.
  87. 2021 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News I– New reports suggest that Susan Rice, Ron Klain, and Barack Hussein Obama are the ones calling the shots in the sagging ears of senile old Joe Biden.  Next, this is extremely puzzling, and we heard today that the Biden regime wants to remove penalties on the trafficking of deadly fentanyl into the United States.  WTF?
  88. 2021 Friday S: Political News I– Much excitement is swirling around the GOP candidate- Cicely Davis- seeking to unseat the extremely unpopular rabble rouser, Rep. Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th CD, in 2022.  Omar is reputed to have married her brother to scam the U.S. immigration system and is a strong advocate of jihad and other Islamist ideas.  We will send money to Ms. Davis.  Omar and her fellow (Suicide) Squad skanks- Sandy “The Fly” Cortez, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, and Cori “The Bitch” Bush all must be ejected from office in November 2022 and onto the scrap heap of defeated left-wing politicians.
  89. 2021 Friday T: Economic News– The White House is running for cover because the expected 720,000 new jobs in the month of July collapsed to a measly 235,00 jobs, most of which, we suspect are little more than ‘hamburger-flipper jobs.’  Shame on the Biden regime for destroying the U.S. economy.  Still, it did not stop the brain-dead usurper in the White House to take a dig at President Donald J. Trump during a ‘jobs speech’ today when he mumbled, “I took on a nation in crisis.”  Joe, YOU caused the crisis, the nation was doing quite well before you stole the 2020 Presidential Election.   In other news, Paris Dennard who once worked with Donald J. Trump and who works for the GOP says that Joe Biden has failed the black community.  He pointed out that unemployment for black males has gone up to 9.1 percent, for black females to 7.9 percent, and for black youths to 17.9 percent.  Man, oh, man, Joe Biden, you are helping black Americans extremely well, aren’t you?  You loser.
  90. 2021 Friday U: Crime and Punishment News-Law Enforcement News I– Former Roman Catholic Church Cardinal Theodore McCarrick of Massachusetts is set to be arraigned on charged he molested a teenager.  Meanwhile, Jacob Chansley, the so-called QANON shaman reportedly is taking a plea deal that will see him do 41-51 months behind bars instead of close to 50 for his role in wandering into the U.S. Capitol Building on January 06, 2021.
  91. 2021 Friday V: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News– Governor Kristi Noem, R-SD, plans to follow the Texas Pro-Life law in her state.  She wants to make South Dakota a strong Pro-Life refuge and not a barbarous, baby chop shop like many leftist-controlled states. [xx]  Speaking of Texas, Attorney General Ken Paxton says that abortion law ‘must be at the state level and not the federal.’  We concur.  San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone says that abortion is not a ‘religious issues’ but a ‘fundamental human rights issue.’  Still, the Biden regime aided by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th CD, and Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer, DS-NY are working overtime to uncover a scheme by which they can overturn the new Texas fetal heartbeat law.  A Senate panel is now carrying out a probe on this ‘evil law,’ one the U.S. Supreme Court allowed to stand… Finally, liberal groups are suing individual Texas lawmakers over the new fetal heartbeat law in the Lone Star State.
  92. 2021 Friday W: Social Media News – Twitter launched a new feature that will allow SOME users to earn money from tweeting.  Bet you won’t see any conservatives making any money from Twitter.   Meanwhile, YouTube censored a video supporting the recall of California Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom.  Shame on them.
  93. 2021 Friday X: Big Tech News– Apple Inc. finally got around to eliminating a homeless community on their property in Silicon Valley.  They offered all manner of aid and help to its inhabitants, most of whom turned it down and wandered away when the area was cleansed, sanitized, and made useful again.  Advocates of urban outdoorsmen raised a BIG STINK, but it is cruel to allow people to live like animals.  We must reclaim and rehabilitate them and return them to society as contributing members.
  94. 2021 Friday Y: Weather News I– In New York City in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida, at least 44 people have lost their lives in various storm-related mishaps.  Some drowned in basement apartments, others were swept away, and still others drowned in submerged vehicles.  The Democrats are howling that Global Warming is the root cause but folks, hurricanes typically occur every year and some of them can be extremely destructive.   Speaking of Ida, slobbering Joe Biden visited New Orleans today to visit storm-related damage there and lo and behold NOT a single outcry from the Fake News Media screeching that Joe was ‘taking away resources by his visit that were needed elsewhere.’  Funny how this works… Elsewhere, when Ida hit New Jersey, the storm-generated tornado we saw on the news had winds of 150 mph.  Wow.
  95. 2021 Friday Z: War on Terror News-Terrorism News-Jihad News– Member of the ‘Beatles,’ an ISIS execution group, British-born Alexanda Kotey, pled guilty in a U.S. courtroom to murdering and torturing numerous people, Americans among them, overseas in the now defeated ISIS caliphate.  He is set to spend the remainder of his crappy life in a federal prison.  In other news, police in New Zealand swarmed a local grocery store after a jihadist whipped out a large knife and began slashing shoppers and within minutes, shot the suspect dead.  Good.  Hang his corpse up for the crows.
  96. 2021 Friday AA: California State News– California Secretary of State Shirley Weber, DS, says that ’21 percent of the mail-in ballots in the recall election of Governor Gavin “The Nazi” Newsom are already pouring in.’  This should give the Dems ample opportunity to see how many ballots they are going to have to order from other states so they can maintain this POS governor in office.
  97. 2021 Friday BB: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– The stupid California teacher Annette Franco who bragged in a TikTok video how she removed the reviled American flag from her grade school classroom and supplanted it with the homosexual rainbow flag and had her kids pledge allegiance to the foul thing has been removed from the classroom.  Yet, she will sit in a CTA rubber room for the rest of her days drawing her full check and benefits.
  98. 2021 Friday CC: Observation of the Day– Here’s an observation for you: the Ancient Greeks were ‘WOKE,’ and the Romans steamrolled over them.  More than a thousand years later, the Ancient Romans equally became ‘WOKE’ and the barbarians overran them.  For all you pansified losers prancing around demanding all things ‘WOKE,’ if you succeed, you are more or less sealing the fate of the United States- the brightest spot on the planet for human rights- by guaranteeing we are more concerned with gender, perversion, homosexuality, and other signs of the End Times.  However, you will be among the first to go when the Chinese, the Russians, the Islamists, or some other culture takes us over.  It will be a pleasure watching you thrown from skyscrapers, hung from helicopters and construction cranes, or any of the other ways devised by the enemies of human rights and freedoms.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.  
  99. 2021 Friday DD: Observation of the Day II– Regarding abortion, whatever happened to personal responsibility?  The fact that women continue getting knocked up implies that relations between men and women have become extremely sloppy.  While most gay men use condoms, it appears that women are open to any and all penetration sans any form of birth control (condoms, IUDs, birth control pills, and other easily accessible forms of preventing unwanted pregnancies) which then leaves abortion as the ONLY form of correcting a ‘mistake.’  I am inclined to believe that where once President Bill Clinton said that abortion should be ‘safe, legal, and rare,’ and that most Americans can accept termination of a pregnancy within the first trimester, the reason for abortion at ALL STAGES of fetal and even post-fetal development, i.e., birth, is because Planned Parenthood encourages it.  The reason for the encouragement is because they make BIG BUCKS just as they can continue the slaughter of babies of color, black women being number one among the recipients of abortions.  This is evil and it must stop.  Once a country makes it legal (and easy) to get rid of unwanted babies, the deformed, the mentally ill, and the old and senile (watch out, Joe) will be the next.  Think about it.  The Nazis labeled the unwanted as ‘useless eaters,’ people who contributed nothing to society (in their view) and who were in need of euthanasia.  Let’s return to men and women exercising personal responsibility and not becoming part of the Satanic offerings the left wants us all to be.  Chef Gervais Krinkelmeier.
  100. 2021 Friday EE: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1691 what with a $323 million jackpot on the line: 07, 10, 12, 61, 65, and Mega 03.  Out of 111,113 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $28,292.
  101. 2021 Friday FF: Friends, the government says via a recent white paper that if an American citizen questions the efficacy of wearing masks or the results of the 2020 Presidential and National Elections, that person can and most likely will be considered a TERRORIST.  If that is the case, then so be it but I will tell our friends in the government this: there are far more of us than there are of YOU.  You would be wise to remember that.  Also, the moment the Joestapo shows up, demand a lawyer.  Period.  God bless America!
  102. 2022 Saturday: I’m rubbing my hands in glee this morning in anticipation of the possible outcome this evening.  Could today be the day when that bombast, that pompous MAGA Maggot be dragged out of one of his racist, hateful rallies and off to the hoosegow?  He thinks he can get away with anything, well, the “Teflon Don” thought he could beat the rap, too, until the Feds determined a way by which they could finally drag him down, prosecute him, and then imprison him.  I am praying for a similar outcome because our nation cannot stand much more of the hateful, racist, divisiveness that is ripping the fabric of our great nation apart.  As I’ve said, I think arresting the man in a public setting will set off his minions which will then lead to civil unrest across the country thus giving us the pretext for our noble president to declare martial law and to postpone the November elections.  We must postpone the elections so as to secure our imperiled nation and we must send all the insurrectionists to reeducation camps so they can become contributing members of society once again.  Let’s take a page out of the China-Uighur Muslim playbook and put it to good use here- I think it will work.  Let me know what you think- Chef Itzi Nakamura.

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

Powell Jr., finished his final day on the court and went into retirement.  He took his seat on the nation’s high court on February 18-1988 and left little more than 30 years later.  Long beloved by liberal Americans as the crucial swing vote on numerous cases, they shed tears as he left the court, fearing it would become much more conservative.  Little did they know they would not have to worry about that. [vi] Meanwhile, Facebook announces a major moment of virtue-signaling as it announces it ‘removed Russian-linked accounts that are attempting to interfere in the November 2018 Elections.’[vii] 
  65. 2019 Wednesday: U.S. officials announce a major coup with the news of an airstrike in Pakistan that killed Osama bin Laden’s son, Hamza bin Laden, and a potential successor.  Good, keep on killing these worthless jihadist scumbags.  Meanwhile, after more than 700,000 people sing a petition demanding the Russian government do something about the out-of-control wildfires destroying Siberia (7.4 million acres burned), Vladimir Putin orders Russian troops to aid the locals in fighting the conflagration devouring his country.  ‘Bout time you did something besides interfering in U.S. elections there, Vlad.  
  66. 2020 Friday: Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues causing problems for the citizens of California as on Friday, he pardoned five people who had already served time and commuted the sentences of another 21 state prison inmates including more than a dozen convicted of murder some of whose victims included young children and pregnant women.  He did this, or so he says, because of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  What a worthless POS.    One of these scumbags released was a 64-year-old murderer Richard Flowers who, at age 38, murdered an elderly Tulare, California, woman in her home and stole her jewelry.  He received a sentence of life without parole and when a potential parole hearing came up under the previous Governor Jerry Brown, Brown would not free him. [viii]

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

Currently, Joe is shy 93,210 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

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

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

This artwork is #0908 a 20” x 24” original oil painting by Beverly Carrick, which, she entitled, “Central Coast.”  It is among her more beautiful works and is available for sale.  You can see much more of her work at her website, found at beverlycarrick.com.  At her website, you will see not only more original oil paintings but also lithographs, giclees, prints, miniatures, photographs, and even her award-winning instructional video entitled, “Painting the Southwest with Beverly Carrick.”  For more than 60 years- up until her untimely death from cancer in 2012- Bev stood before the easel and painted for 10-12 hours per day. Known around the world for both the beauty and timelessness of her artworks, her paintings are in demand as much today as they were 30 years ago.  Hanging in private and public galleries and followed by many fans encircling the globe—her works instill awe because of her artistic brilliance and personal beauty.  We urge you to go to her website NOW and view her stunning body of work, one the Chi-Coms have long tried to copy and sell facsimiles of but which none of them have ever been able to reproduce well enough to fool novice art buyers.  Once there, it is possible that you will find something you like and will want to buy it for yourself, a friend, a loved one, or a neighbor- virtually anyone.  You will not be disappointed so please: do yourself a favor and go there as quickly as your fingers can tap the letters on your keyboard.  The American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day, aka the AICPENDBLOG.COM, thanks each and every one of you, our beloved, loyal fan base.  DON’T buy any counterfeit bull crap coming out of mainland communist China, especially from Xinjiang Province, ground zero for Chi-Com National Socialism.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

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

[vi] Both of President Donald J. Trump’s two court picks Neil Gorsuch (#113) and Brett Kavanaugh (#114) have voted against the president who nominated them more often than they have not- just like Associate Justice Kennedy!  What is it about Republican picks?

211. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, JULY 30, 2022

2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out. Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur. In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.

  55. 2016 Saturday: Near Lockhart, Texas, a terrible tragedy unfolds as a hot air balloon crashes into electric power lines. All 16 aboard the craft perished.
  56. 2017 Sunday: Communist Chinese President for life Xi Jinping leads a military parade in Inner Mongolia at the Zhurihe training facility, celebrating 90 years of the People’s Liberation Army. Big whoop!   Meanwhile, another thug- Vladimir Putin- announces he has slashed the numbers of American diplomats in his pro-communist country by 755 due in part to President Trump putting sanctions on the country.
  57. 2018 Monday: Sadly, for people around the world, the Malaysian government announces that it has been unable to determine the causes that downed Flight MH370 somewhere in the Indian Ocean (or so people believe). It disappeared on March 08, 2014, with all 239 passengers and crew aboard. 
  58. 2019 Tuesday: Law enforcement in California released information on the shooter at the Gilroy Garlic Festival- 19-year-old Santino William Legan- the punk who murdered three people before the police shot the POS dead (gotta love the cops!). Apparently, the punk posted white supremacist text messages and racist content before he embarked on his shooting spree. Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate failed to override President Donald J. Trump’s vetoes on bills blocking arms sales to Saudi Arabia.  Politicians are angry over the murder of the journalist Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey.
  59. 2020 Thursday: President Donald J. Trump sets the world ablaze when he questions the efficacy of mail-in ballots and proffers the suggestion that perhaps the November elections be postponed until this crazy system can be worked out. Folks, mail-in ballots are fraud waiting to occur. In June, the state of New York used mail-in ballots in their primary election and lo and behold, nearly seven weeks later, they are still trying to find out who won the various elections.  Meanwhile, former President Barack Hussein Obama- in his eulogy for deceased Rep. John Lewis, D-GA, lambastes President Trump for trying to steal the election, using voter intimidation and manipulation and God knows what other bull crap the former president could yank out of his mind and the attendees at the funeral, none of whom were sitting six-feet apart, leapt to their feet and applauded insanely for what seemed like hours.   Will Democrats NEVER continue trying to steal elections?  Enough is flipping enough, already, folks.  Finally, Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather Pizza and GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain dies at age 74 from the Bat Virus sent around the world by the Chi-Coms.  Speaking of the Bat Flu:

[iv]

Trump COVID-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 310,488 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 93,590 deaths- we brought this number up to date- Joe is going to hit the mark very soon now…

[x]        
  68. 2021 Friday E: S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in the Four States in which we have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have risen to $4.356 per gallon, $2.976 in Florida, $4.090 in Hawaii, and $3.843 in Washington state. [xi] Let’s look at one other location- Kansas: $2.940.  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- Burundi: $4.591 per U.S. Gallon.[xii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,583,734,946,871 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiii]  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 Poland, the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Philippines with $43 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.
  69. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Folks, the days continue passing us by and lo and behold, today is Day No. 129 for the purported ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris to be in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border and Day No. 35 since her one and only visit to the region. Speaking of the regime for which the border czar labors, the Department of Justice is suing Governor Greg Abbott, R-TX, for his order to HALT all further ground transportation of illegal aliens across the Lone Star State. Of course, the DOJ cannot have a governor fighting back but legal eagles say the Lone Star State’s case is going to be hard to topple.   
  70. 2021 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– One America News compiles the HONEST-TO-GOD numbers of the costs and numbers surrounding our illegal alien invasion and today is NO different. First, here is the cost for just this flipping day: $585,147,264.  Imagine all the good that money could do for the American people and lo and behold, it’s going to care for noncitizens who do not deserve to be here and who must be rounded up, imprisoned in the absolute worst conditions, deprogrammed to want to come here a la “A Clockwork Orange,” and then deported via any means available.  How about we ship them to communist China?  Second, here is the cost this year of caring for the invaders: $230,722,174,976.    So much money going down the crapper, folks; we must round up all of them- including the DREAMERS and any other foals calved here and ship them back NOW.  Third, here is the number of estimated illegals who have swamped the U.S. in 2021 alone: 2,364,717.  Finally, here is the fourth and final statistic, the number of illegal aliens estimated to be running amok across the United States: 36,364,710.  Remember, this is a CONSERVATIVE NUMBER.  (Sources for One America News Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, and MIT).  We tend to disagree with the final number as we said as far back as 2009 that the numbers then were between 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the number to be closer to 75-100 million which means we have an invasion army already living in our midst.  Time to exercise the 2nd Amendment…(to protect ourselves).
  71. 2021 Friday H: Illegal Aliens, Invaders, and ‘Refugees’ News– Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have joined forces to demand the Biden regime awaken to the dangers of unchecked mass immigration into the United States from nearly 160 nations around the globe. Entire neighborhoods and towns are being overrun with illegal aliens and people are beginning to fight back and to end this unconstitutional mess.
  72. 2021 Friday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– As ‘Gropin’ Joe’ Biden continues playing pocket pool in the White House basement, national security experts are growing concerned over the Chi-Coms ramped up silo-building. Silos are where intercontinental ballistic missiles- ICBMs- reside and it’s clear the Chi-Coms are constructing them like flies have maggots. We believe it may be time to launch a pre-emptive strike on the Chi-Coms before they go to war against the Free World.
  73. 2021 Friday J: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information I– Yesterday, Il Duce Joe Biden said that ALL federal employees and contractors will be required to get vaccinated for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu or face never-ending mask-wearing, 2-3, perhaps even 4 tests a week (could be anal ones like the Chi-Coms favor for all international travelers) as well as being prohibited from traveling for job-related matters. Thus, the American Fuhrer has spoken. Yet, we learn that in places such as Massachusetts where a major outbreak of the Chi-Com Yellow Fever is underway, there seems to be a pandemic of the vaccinated, NOT the vaccinated as the liberal goobers claim.  Hence why NONE of us are going to get vaccinated for this bogus virus crisis (we have urgent care centers willing to dish out hydroxychloroquine tablets and vitamin D injections).   Yesterday, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, put forth a bill which will hold the Centers for Disease Control accountable for all the lies and propaganda they continue spewing on the Chi-Vi.
  74. 2021 Friday K: COVID-19 Updates and Additional Information II– Broadway is mandating that all behind-the-scenes personnel as well as performers AND all attendees wear masks as well as present proof of vaccination. Uh, okay. Speaking of mass mask stupidity, Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-NY 22nd congressional district, says ‘it’s amazing: right across the hall in the U.S. Senate, NO MASKS.’  It’s as if by magic.  In other COVID-19 news, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu has snared approximately 2 million Americans in a passport backlog.  Next, the House GOP is demanding that Dr. “Phony Tony” Fauci and other top COVID-19 scientists testify on the Hill.   Senator Marsha Blackburn, R-TN, says that ‘Pelosi’s mask mandates are a massive overreach of her powers.’
  75. 2021 Friday L: Joe Biden News I– While Joe Biden was at some function, people noticed he had a yellow booger hanging off his chin, something of which, he was unaware. One of his aides, however, rushed to his side, handed him a note saying, ‘something’s on your chin.’ He wiped the snot off and according to some either stuck it in his mouth as though he were still in kindergarten (in his mind, he seemingly still is) or wiped it on the tabletop.  Either way, he remains our national disgrace and humiliation.  In other Joe Biden news, he took a BIG ONE on the chin when House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi was unable to prevent the evictions moratorium collapse as of tomorrow morning.  It looks like the mentally decrepit, nonagenarian speaker is folding like a deck of cards. 
  76. 2021 Friday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Department of Justice says that the Internal Revenue Service MUST hand President Donald J. Trump’s tax records over to the angry Democrat goons in the U.S. House of Representatives.
  77. 2021 Friday N: Political News I– Lee Zeldin, R-NY 1st congressional district, says that the ‘nursing home probe into deaths in New York’ caused by the indifference or worse, by design of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo aka the Love Gov aka the Gropin’ Gov ‘should continue.’ Elsewhere, new polling out of Wyoming shows that Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-Large congressional district, is in deep, deep trouble with the voters. She deserves it.  Next, we continue to learn about the duplicitous activities of the Catholic Charities spreading illegal aliens across the United States regardless as to whether they have the Chi-Vi or other diseases or not.  This is not good and it causing many of our Catholic members to lapse in their church support.   Finally, the Wisconsin Republicans are working at expanding the state’s 2020 Election probe.  Good for them.
  78. 2021 Friday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1681 what with a $166 million jackpot on the line: 19, 26, 31, 52, 68, and Mega 10. Out of 77,695 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were 37 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $568 apiece.2022 Saturday: Hubbub continues from Tuesday’s extremely peculiar and wholly unnatural ‘speech’ by slobbering Joe Biden, you know, the one where he mumbled and stumbled through his verbal assault on President Donald J. Trump with his unblinking eyes wide open.  It’s as if he has a ‘Dr. Morrell’ in his employ, the doctor who ‘treated’ Adolf Hitler throughout the war years.  Dr. Morrell used to inject the Fuhrer with all manner of things such as vitamins, methamphetamine, even bull semen, to make his Fuhrer less crazy and more in control, none of which worked.  The Joe Biden ‘speech’ made me think of one of those ‘G.I. Joe’ movies where America’s enemies replaced the president with a look-alike clone.  It also makes me think of those lifelike dolls the Japanese use as sexual partners, whatever drooling Joe is doing, I doubt it’s truly him.  We have never been in a situation such as this.  Let me know what you think- Chef Elmer K. Hootenstein.

BEVERLY CARRICK ORIGINAL ARTWORK OF THE DAY:

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next studio album from Beach Boys genius, Brian Wilson- “Gettin’ In Over My Head”- came out on June 22, 2004.  Like Pete Townsend and his “Lighthouse” project that never made it to completion, Brian Wilson was working on two different projects during the 1990s, both of which never made it to fruition.  The music was there and he went back and reworked it and brought it to the public in all its radiant glory.  Brian Wilson’s band of musicians joined him as did four big guests, Elton John, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, and Carl Wilson as well as other studio hotshots brought in to help him finish the project.  Fans raved over the album as do we which is why we encourage everyone to seek this one out wherever it is they shop for the absolute best in music- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

  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.

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

  50. 2004 Thursday: The September 11 commission’s final report hit the news on this date.  The 575-page report concluded that hijackers exploited “deep institutional failings within our government.”  The commission released it to the White House a day before.  This report has led many 9-11 Truthers to blame George W. Bush for allowing the jihadist scum to attack the United States so the President could launch a war with Iraq.  This is a bunch of felonious bull crap as EVERYONE—we repeat—EVERYONE believed Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.

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

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

[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.

[i] We began promoting the music of Supertramp on Monday, 13-July-2020 and we plan on promoting them through Tuesday, 11-August-2020.  We hope you will seek them and their music out, they are a fantastic band.

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

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

1942 Thursday: During World War II, French police in league with the Gestapo arrest 13,152 Jews throughout Paris and hold them in the Winter Velodrome. It was part of an agreement between Pierre Laval and the Nazis. Germany had agreed to not deport French Jews if France arrested foreign Jews.

SUMMER SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 118

LET ME SAY WHAT OTHER DEMOCRATS WON’T (BUT HOPE FOR): CAN WE BRING PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP BACK TO THE WHITE HOUSE?  NOW?

U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justices Samuel Freeman Miller and John Paul Stevens; U.S. Attorney General Henry Stanbery; (Acting) U.S. Attorney General Dick Thornburg; U.S. Secretary of State George P. Schultz; British Lions featuring Ray Major, Deep Purple featuring Jon Lord, Johnny Winter, Loggins and Messina, and the Police featuring Stewart Copeland:

  1. 622 Tuesday: The Era of Islam begins as Muhammad flees from Mecca to Medina, having been thrown out for promoting belief in Allah when the folks living in that fabled city were polytheists.  They did not want a singular god, they wanted to worship the many as they always had but Muhammad condemned them for their beliefs, thus they wanted to KILL the so-called ‘prophet.’   
  2. 1099 Sunday: The Crusaders herd the Jews of Jerusalem into a synagogue and set it afire.
  3. 1216 Saturday: The reign of the 176th Roman Catholic Pope Innocent III ends on this date.  He first picked up his Holy Cross on January 08, 1198, and over the subsequent 18 years and 190 days guided the faithful on its quest to commune with Jesus Christ for all eternity.
  4. 1429 Thursday: Joan of Arc leads the French army in the Battle of Orleans.
  5. 1548 Friday: Spanish Conquistadors found the city of La Paz, Bolivia.
  6. 1683 Friday: Ottoman E
