Tulsi Gabbard, D-HI, called for Chicago Mayor Lori “Frog Face” Lightfoot to resign over her bigotry.  Remember, the incredibly unattractive “Frog Face” Lightfoot will now ONLY Interview with Nonwhite reporters.  (Note- perhaps as a show of good faith, the mayor should divorce her white wife?  Just saying).  Meanwhile, Minneapolis last night did its best to become Chicago with two shot dead and at least another eight shot.  Wow.  Finally, senators reach a bi-partisan deal of $304 billion on a highway package.  Wow.
  88. 2021 Saturday M: Miscellaneous News I– Two prison guards who were on hand the night Jeffrey Epstein- infamous pedophile- committed ‘suicide’ in prison took a plea deal from the U.S. Department of Justice for neglect of duty which will keep them out of the Klink.  They will have to each do 100 hours of community service.  Cakewalk.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says he is getting his Boeing 757 updated and that it will soon be flying once again.  Rallies are coming up this summer, folks.  Finally, a former FBI data analyst Kendra Kingsbury has been indicted for allegedly taking sensitive data home.

  22. 1902 Tuesday: The United States ended a three-year military presence in Cuba as the people established the Republic of Cuba under its first elected president, Tomas Estrada Palma—the United States should have made it a state.

  29. 1941 Tuesday: During World War II, German troops invade the Mediterranean island of Crete to strangle British forces in North Africa.  German and Italian air and naval assets pummel the islands while paratroopers begin landings across the island.  Resistance is fierce and the Brits are giving as good as they get.  Still, it is only a matter of time.
  30. 1942 Wednesday: During World War II, the Office of Civilian Defense was established.  On the Eastern Front, German armored units are pushing the remaining Red Army forces out of the eastern Crimea where they had established bridgeheads on the Kerch Peninsula in preparation for what they thought would be a massive counterstroke against their Fascist enemies.  Perhaps another time…
  31. 1943 Thursday: Axis forces continue pushing back Soviet counterthrusts in the Ukraine.  Meanwhile, both the Germans and their Russian enemies are building up their forces for the big summer Battle of Kursk.  Both sides believe that when the opposing sides meet, whoever wins the battle will win the war.

  33. 1945 Sunday: Heavy fighting continues on Okinawa as the American forces have to clear every spider hole, every trench line, and every cave.  The Japanese resist until the very end when flamethrowers and napalm clear them out of their firing positions.  It is a horrible, brutal affair.  Meanwhile, in Mainland China, Japanese forces begin strategic withdrawals of their troops so as to consolidate more defensible positions.  They are aware that with the collapse of the Nazis, Soviet forces will soon be redeploying to Asia to keep their bargain with the Western Allies- the invasion of northern China and Mongolia.

  53. 2004 Thursday: The George W. Bush administration is applying pressure on its fellow U.N. Security Council to renew Resolution 1487 which shields U.S. military personnel and officials from prosecution by the International Criminal Court.  (Note- why does the United States worry about this crap when the Russians, Muslims, and even the Chi-Coms and North Koreans don’t?  Kind of goofy to us).

Finally, longtime drummer with another Southern rock band, the Atlanta Rhythm Section[v]–Robert Nix (drums/percussion/backing vocals 1971-1979)—died on this date in Memphis, Tennessee, at age 67.
  62. 2013 Monday: Ray Manzarek, keyboardist of the rock group, the Doors[vi], dies in Rosenheim, Germany, from cancer.  Meanwhile, in Stockholm, Sweden, thousands of illegal immigrants launch a massive riot in which, the scumbags set 100 automobiles ablaze during the melee.  Meanwhile, Yahoo purchases Tumblr for $1.1 billion.  Wow.  Finally, jihadists running amok across Iraq kill 133 people and wound at least another 283.  Ah, the so-called “Religion of Peace!”

  67. 2018 Sunday: In the socialist hellhole of Venezuela, President Nicolas Maduro wins re-election in a questionable election marked by boycotts, protests, and massive accusations of vote-rigging.  The guy must be a Democrat.
  68. 2019 Monday: Google supposedly ends its support for communist China’s Huawei Android phone system as tensions between the United States and the counterfeit socialist nation deteriorate.
  69. 2020 Wednesday: Beijing is sniveling and whining that everyone is calling the Chinese Virus “the Chinese Virus,” but it is the Chinese Virus as it came to us from the hinterlands of Wuhan, China, and it continues killing people around the planet as we speak and allowing totalitarian leaders to increase their grip on their populations.  Here are the stats for the globe today: 4,968,689 number of confirmed cases, 326,515 number of confirmed deaths, and 1,885,535 number of confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have (thanks to communist China) 1,581,903 confirmed cases, 93,806 confirmed deaths, and 301,341 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, the AICPENDBLOG.COM- the old American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day, formerly at Google Blogger (scumbags), California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, the Golden State first: 81,795 confirmed cases, 3,334 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are Hawaii’s stats: 643 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 578 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are Washington state’s stats: 18,923 confirmed cases, 1,037 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, liberal Blue State governors continue freeing criminals from prisons and jails, supposedly out of fear of COVID-19, but in truth, seeking to punish their enemies.  Is a second Civil War coming?  It sure looks that way, thanks to communist China.

  71. 2021 Thursday A: NOTE: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 286,128 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- President Biden, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,078 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus. Currently, Joe is shy 173,481 deaths.   In other Chi-Vi-related news, lawmakers are asking WHY House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, possibly more senile than the 46th president is, won’t update the MASK DICTATE when the Centers for Disease Control says, ‘MOST Americans no longer have to wear masks (not that we ever truly did).’  The amazing thing is that when the Democrats believe the cameras are turned off, the masks come off.  What a load of festering fecal matter.

  75. 2021 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.153 per gallon, $2.884 in Florida, $3.889 in Hawaii, and $3.553 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- West Virginia: $2.993.  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- Colombia: $2.313 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,309,522,043,913 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  76. 2021 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Today is Day 59 for Border Czar “Kooky Kamala” Harris NOT to visit the southern border.  Meanwhile, rumors of maltreatment and mistreatment of illegal aliens in holding pens along the southern border continue to grow and the federal government has closed two facilities with dire records of mistreatment of the incarcerated illegals.  Elsewhere, video is beginning to leak out of illegal alien dumps at various airports around the country in the dead of night.  Chef Lilah who has a relative working at the airport in Honolulu says that illegal alien brats are arriving at least once a week in flights who are then being distributed around the Hawaiian Islands.  This simply must stop. 
  77. 2021 Thursday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Hamas and Hezbollah are crying uncle.  A ceasefire negotiated by the Joe Biden regime and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sissi has brought a halt to the ongoing clash of Good (Israel) and Evil (Hamas and Hezbollah).  The Israelis have eliminated most of the tunnels that Palestinian leadership devotes massive amounts of donated money to construct rather than giving their people better lives.  The Israels also have taken out numerous Hamas military sites and as many Hamas scumbags as possible.  God bless you!   Meanwhile, a Chinese Communist Party-linked professor says that ‘COVID-19 was indeed a Chi-Com biological weapons attack on the United States.’  Hell, we have been saying that since it began gaining steam in early 2020!  Senior Researcher Chen Ping of China Institute of Fudan University said that ‘(communist) China defeated the U.S. in a biological war in 2020.’  What more flipping evidence does the world need to understand that the primary target was President Donald J. Trump, and the primary beneficiary was “Pro-China Joe” Biden?  OPEN YOUR EYES.
  78. 2021 Thursday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– Dr. Kelli Ward, chair of the Arizona GOP, says that it would appear that more and more evidence demonstrates that the 2020 Elections in the Copper State most likely were corrupt and fraudulent in Maricopa County and that it is possible that Joe Biden could be proven to be the counterfeit that he is.  We hope to see a great outcome which is why the Arizona Democratic Party is doing everything it can to defy the ongoing audit as is the despicable Dominion Voting Systems out of Canada.  We believe the Canadian government must order them to comply with all requests from the ongoing Grand Canyon State audit.   (Note- George Soros-funded Sheriff Paul Penzone, DS, is fighting the auditors by putting as much blockage in their way.  When the hell is this country going to do something to Mr. Soros?)  Finally, the D.A. in Fayette City, Pennsylvania, has launched a probe into WHY Dominion Voting Systems machines flipped ONLY GOP ballots over to Democrats in the last election.  Bit by bit, more information continues coming out that we believe is going to show that the Democrats stole 2020.  Hence, why is there this determination to continue strengthening Fort Pelosi in Washington, D.C.?  They know they got away with a stolen election.
  79. 2021 Thursday I: Joe Biden Regime News I– the Biden regime directs U.S. agencies to assess and to then mitigate the effects of ‘climate change.’  Uh, okay, what a waste of time.   Next, all of the Biden regime’s misfires has led to problems in the U.S.-Israeli relationship.  Speaking of Israel, Joe’s pal, Senator Bernie Sanders, DS-VT, is offering legislation to BLOCK the $735 million sale of weapons to the Israelis.  (Note- what more evidence does one require to know that Bernie is a self-hating Jew?)  Also related to Israel, GOP lawmakers are calling on Mr. Biden to strengthen U.S. ties with Israel.  In other regime news, the Bidenistas say the Chi-Coms won’t release data from their now infamous Wuhan Biological Warfare Lab.
  80. 2021 Thursday J: Political News I– The University of North Carolina has denied 1619 Project founder, Nikole “Bozo the Clown” Hannah-Jones tenure because this woman is- in the language of the young and dumb- cray-cray.  Good for them.  Educated, fair-minded people must begin pushing back on these racist nuts before they destroy our country.  Boot this bi**h into the nearest dumpster.  Speaking of educated, non-racist folks, a new study finds that 35-percent or more conservative thinkers are better educated and better informed on both current events and past events.  Liberal news watchers are much-less educated and aware of the truth of anything.  Speaking of liberal bias, Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-TX 2nd congressional district, calls out the mainstream news media- what Dave Rubin labels ‘corporate news media’- over its coverage of events.
  81. 2021 Thursday K: Political News II– While the Democrats continue pressing ahead with socialism, House GOP leaders held a Cuban independence day event.  The people of Cuba deserve their freedom while the American people do not deserve being forced into communism via the backdoor of socialism. Meanwhile, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, lambasted the Democrats’ establishment of the ‘January 06, 2021, Commission’ as being little more than ‘impeachment 3.0.  Amen.  In fact, ZERO people have been charged with insurrection.  NONE.  The National Republican Congressional Committee raised $11.2 million in the month of April.   Elsewhere, people are asking questions as to WHY Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer just shut down the state’s Line 5 that provides propane for much of Michigan for home heating?  WTF is occurring here.
  82. 2022 Friday: Everyone knows the drill- stick around with us and discover the truth…the way things are going, we may have to make nice with China because things are going to hell here in the United States in a handbasket what with WOKE this and WOKE that and here a WOKE and there a WOKE, everywhere a WOKE-WOKE-WOKE…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

“Pet Sounds” came out on May 16, 1966 and was the commercial pinnacle of the Beach Boys.  No longer touring with his brothers, cousin, and friends, Brian was in the studio with session musicians and lyricists and created perhaps one of the all-time greatest albums in the annals of modern, popular music.  From start to finish, the album was a tapestry of musical influences, stories, feelings, and emotions all interwoven with one another.  When the Beatles heard this album, it is reported that they were awed at what they had to compete.  Of course, they would be working on “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band.”  The tunes include nothing but memorable hits such as “Wouldn’t It be Nice,” “You Still Believe in Me,” “Don’t Talk (Put Your Head on my Shoulder),” “Sloop John B,” “God Only Knows,” and “Caroline, No.”  We hope you will seek this album out and make it a part of your daily musical rotation because it will indeed grow upon- not only your ears- but your heart, mind and soul.  Check it out now- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

TODAY IN HISTORY @ THE AICPENDBLOG.COM @ WORDPRESS.COM

SPRING SESSION 2022

DAYS UNTIL ELECTION DAY 2022: 189

136. TODAY IN HISTORY—MONDAY, MAY 16, 2022:

Vice President Levi P. Morton; U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Norman J. Coleman; U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan; U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward; U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning; Black Sabbath featuring Ronnie James Dio, King Crimson featuring Robert Fripp, Nazareth featuring Darrell Sweet, Nirvana featuring Krist Novoselic, Robin Trower featuring James Dewar, Savoy Brown featuring Roger Earl, and the Who:

  1. 1003 Monday: The 140th Roman Catholic Pope John XVII assumes his role as the Vicar of Christ on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until November 06, 1003.
  2. 1605 Monday: The 233rd Roman Catholic Pope Paul V became the shepherd of all Christians on this date.  He would guide his global flock from today until January 28, 1621.
  3. 1611 Monday: Future 240th Roman Catholic Pope Innocent XI is born Benedetto Odescalchi.  He would pick up his Holy Cross on September 21, 1671 and would lead his global flock from then until August 12, 1689.
  4. 1770 Wednesday:  Marie Antoinette, age 14, married the future King Louis XVI of France, who was only 15 years old.
  5. 1771 Thursday: The Battle of Alamance, a pre-American Revolutionary War battle between local militia and a group of rebels called the Regulators, took place on this date in Alamance County, North Carolina.
  6. 1792 Wednesday: Denmark abolishes the slave trade.
  7. 1801 Saturday: In Florida, N.Y., future 24th U.S. Secretary of State William H. Seward is born.  He would serve under Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Andrew Johnson from March 06, 1861, to March 04, 1869.  During this time, he bought Alaska from the Russians, something many saw as foolhardy and a waste of taxpayers’ money.  In fact, so many derided the purchase, they called it “Seward’s Folly;” that is, until massive gold deposits were discovered there.  In 2019, the 45th president of the United States sought to buy Greenland from Denmark, and everyone laughed at him, including the Europeans.  Imagine how important Alaska is to the United States geopolitically and the same could be true of Greenland.  We shall see.
  8. 1817 Friday: Regular steamboat service up-and-down the Mississippi River begins on this date.
  9. 1824 Sunday: The future 22nd Republican vice president of the United States—Levi P. Morton—is born in Shoreham, Vermont, on this date.  He served under President Benjamin Harrison from March 04, 1889, to March 04, 1893.
  10. 1827 Wednesday: In Richfield Springs, N.Y., future first U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Noman J. Coleman is born.  A future Democrat, Secretary Coleman would serve under President Grover Cleveland from April 03, 1885, to February 14, 1889.
  11. 1831 Monday: The future 37th U.S. Treasury Secretary Daniel Manning is born.  A future Democrat, he would serve under President Grover Cleveland from March 08, 1885, to March 21, 1887.
  12. 1860 Wednesday: At Chicago, the Republican Party selects Abraham Lincoln as its candidate for the presidency of the United States.
  13. 1861 Thursday: The Confederate government offers war volunteers a $10 premium to join the ranks.
  14. 1863 Saturday: During the Vicksburg Campaign, the bloodiest fighting occurs at Champion’s Hill in Mississippi.
  15. 1865 Tuesday: The 8th U.S. Interior Secretary James Harlan assumed office on this date.  A Republican, he served under President Andrew Johnson from today until August 31, 1866.
  16. 1866 Wednesday: Charles Elmer Hires invents root beer on this date.  Elsewhere, Congress authorized the first 5-cent piece to undergo minting.
  17. 1868 Saturday: The U.S. Senate failed by one vote to convict President Andrew Johnson as it took its first ballot on the 11 articles of impeachment against him.  Thirty-five out of 54 senators voted to find Johnson guilty of “high crimes and misdemeanors” over his attempted dismissal of Secretary of War Edwin M. Stanton, falling one vote short of the two-thirds majority required to convict; 10 days later, the trial ended after two other articles of impeachment went down in flames, too.  The problem was Johnson wanted to follow the wishes of assassinated President Abraham Lincoln who wanted to treat the South with leniency while Lincoln’s holdover Cabinet members wanted to crush them.
  18. 1869 Sunday: The Cincinnati Reds play their first baseball game and win 41-7.

  26. 1920 Sunday: Pope Benedict XV- the 258th Roman Catholic Church pontiff- canonized Joan of Arc.  Meanwhile, former Republican Vice President Levi Morton died in Rhinebeck, NY, on his birthday at age 96.

  28. 1929 Thursday: The motion picture industry presented the first Academy Awards on this date.  The movie, “Wings,” won best production while Emil Jannings and Janet Gaynor won best actor and best actress respectively.
  29. 1939 Tuesday: The government began its first food stamp program in Rochester, New York; under future President Barack Obama, it is at the highest levels ever before seen.  Elsewhere, the Philadelphia Athletics and the Cleveland Indians met at Shibe Park in Philly for the first baseball game played under lights in the American League.  
  30. 1940 Thursday: Prime Minister Winston Churchill returns to London from Paris as the Nazi juggernaut rolls across France.  For the Germans, the conquest of France is going better than expected.  French troops are in full retreat while the British are struggling to reach the Channel Coast.  General Heinz Guderian’s XIX Panzer Corps is breaking away from the rest of the steam-rolling army to try to beat the Brits to the coast so as to complete the trap and bag tens of thousands of prisoners.  
  31. 1941 Friday: Over Birmingham, England, the Luftwaffe flies its last great air raid; after this, most units would begin moving eastward for the assault on Russia in early summer.  Meanwhile, the Italian army in Ethiopia under Count Aosta surrenders to the British.

  33. 1944 Tuesday: The first load of 180,000 Jews arrives at Auschwitz Concentration Camp.
  34. 1946 Thursday: Roger Earl, future original drummer of both Savoy Brown[i] and Foghat[ii] was born in London, England, on this date as was Robert Fripp—future multi-instrumentalist and ongoing original member of the British Prog-Rock band, King Crimson[iii].  Mr. Fripp was born in Wimborne Minster, England.  Elsewhere, Jack Mullin presented the first magnetic tape recorder to the world on this date.

  36. 1948 Sunday: Israel issues its first postage stamps.

  42. 1969 Friday: Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey of the Who[vi] undergo arrest on assault charges.
  43. 1975 Friday: Japanese climber Junko Tabei became the first woman to reach the summit of Mt. Everest.  Meanwhile, Muhammad Ali scores a technical knockout over Ron Lyle in the 11th round of their heavyweight title fight.  Lyle’s pro record went to 30-3-1 while Ali’s record went to 47-2 and he retained the WBA, WBC, and Ring Magazine’s heavyweight champion of the world boxing titles.  Ali’s next fight would be against Joe Bugner in June.  Lyle’s next fight would be against the legendary Earnie Shavers in September.

  58. 2014 Friday: California burning- near San Diego, California, authorities inform the public that at least 20,000 acres have gone up in smoke within the county.   This is the toll of 11 wildfires.  This crap goes on year after year because Democrats will NOT permit proper forest management, won’t build new dams to collect fresh water instead of allowing it to flow out to sea, and putting so many restrictions atop PG&E and other power companies to fight global warming by pursuing renewable energy goals that are unrealistic.  The state requires good governance and it’s not from the Democrats.
  59. 2015 Saturday: Mohammad Morsi, the first democratically elected leader of Egypt and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, receives a sentence of death for his role in a prison outbreak in 2011 that led to many deaths.  
  60. 2016 Monday: Pfizer announces plans to buy biopharmaceutical company Anacor Pharmaceuticals for $5.2 billion.  Meanwhile, Colombian law enforcement authorities make the largest drug bust in the history of their country: 18,000 pounds of high-grade cocaine.
  61. 2017 Tuesday: As the ongoing effort to destroy President Donald J. Trump continues, Newsweek reports that UNNAMED intelligence officials warned Israel NOT to share sensitive information with the president because he MIGHT pass it on to the Russians.  (Note- this is a load of crap).
  62. 2018 Wednesday: As talks on a summit between North Korea and the United States continues, Pyongyang says that it ‘might cancel the talks if the U.S. continues demanding unilateral disarmament of its nuclear weapons.  They know what happened to Libya that gave up its WMDs and things did not end well for the regime of Moammar Gaddafi.   Likewise, talks that were supposed to occur between North and South Korea are canceled as a protest of U.S. demands.
  63. 2019 Thursday: According to the Global Drug Survey, English-speaking peoples are more likely to get drunk throughout the year than do, non-English speakers, with the British getting drunk the most, an average of 51 times per year.  Folks, this is bogus information as Russians drink more than anyone and communist nations’ citizens (or authoritarian ones) drinking more than anyone anywhere else.   Elsewhere, the Trump administration finally does something that should have happened long ago and that is to cancel $929 million federal grant funding the disastrous California High-Speed Rail project, a project that seems to enrich Democratic politicians and their Chi-Com overseers.  (Note- we await Elon Musk’s Hyperloop which will make the train what it is- an expensive boondoggle).
  64. 2020 Saturday: Thanks to communist China, the Wuhan Virus Crisis continues as the disease continues causing problems around the world.  However, information coming from independent sources within the totalitarian state report as many as 750,000 cases of the coronavirus with possible number of deaths ranging from 150,000-to-250,000.  Since the authoritarian state won’t tell the world the truth, we must rely on these brave sources willing to put their lives and those of their families at risk to get the truth out to the rest of the world.  Here are the global statistics for today: 4,626,632 confirmed cases what with 311,363 confirmed deaths but 1,679,428 confirmed recoveries which is amazing, the number of recoveries compared to deaths.  In the United States, we have 1,497,244 confirmed cases, 89,420 confirmed deaths, but 272,525 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states where we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the stats, state by state, beginning first with the Golden State: 76,793 confirmed cases, 3,204 confirmed deaths, but of course, 0 confirmed recoveries- California, give us the information!  You are no better than flipping communist China!  For Hawaii, we have 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 564 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Gov. Ige.  For the once great state of Washington, now beset by a socialist state government, here are the stats: 18,288 confirmed cases, 999 confirmed deaths, but like that fellator Gov. Gavin Newsom in California, NO number of confirmed recoveries because Gov. Inslee won’t share the stats.  Vote these scumbags out of office as soon as possible.  
  65. 2021 Sunday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 163,716,770 confirmed cases, +6,113, 3,393,335  confirmed deaths, +117 and 143,320,593 confirmed recoveries, +77,970.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,715,951 confirmed cases, UP 20,704 from yesterday’s reporting, 600,147 confirmed deaths, UP 308,[x] and 27,136,020 confirmed recoveries, UP 38,423.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xi]   
  66. 2021 Sunday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 283,944 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 175,665 deaths.

  70. 2021 Sunday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Four States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.128 per gallon, $2.893 in Florida, $3.862 in Hawaii, and $3.535 in Washington state.[xviii]    Let’s look at one other location- Utah: $3.359.  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- United Arab Emirates: $2.247 per U.S. Gallon.[xix]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,294,956,742,867 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xx]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  71. 2021 Sunday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– And they used to complain about President Donald J. Trump using Department of Defense funds to defend the southern border, we learn today that Joe Biden has diverted $2 billion from federal healthcare programs to care for illegal aliens overrunning the border.  Wow.   Meanwhile, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich says that Joe Biden should relieve “Kooky Kamala” Harris of her duties as border czar because in 54 days in this position, the least popular woman in the United States has yet to visit the border.
  72. 2021 Sunday G: Foreign News / Overseas News–  Australia announces it is going to keep its borders closed to all but its own citizens returning home until mid-2022.   Next, the U.S. Department of Defense says that ‘yes indeed, Israel has the right to defend herself.’  Hell, we already know that.  They are on a crusade to eliminate Hamas and other Islamist scum from the planet.  We say continue. 
  73. 2021 Sunday H: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– the recount of ballots in Arizona has already yielded evidence that criminal activities did indeed occur in the subsequent hours after the 2020 Election.  There is word that ‘Senator’ Mark Kelly could be recalled, and that Martha McSally returned to her position.  We await further developments.
  74. 2021 Sunday I: Political News I– South Carolina reelected Drew McKissick to continue on as the state’s GOP chair of the state.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-Fl, has reached an agreement with the Seminole Nation for expanded casino development and gambling.  (Note- Chef Cherry and hubby are excited by this news- Hawaii never went for casinos).   Elsewhere, new polls show that IF Joe Biden does not run for a second term in 2024 and “Kooky Kamala” Harris somehow dips her corrupt toe in the water, her popularity as a candidate is in the pits.  (Note- we could have told them that- she was a disaster in California, too.  Thank God she’s gone).
  75. 2021 Sunday J: Miscellaneous News I–  Joe Exotic is seeking an early release from the slammer due to a possible cancer diagnosis.   Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, 1,500 trailers meant to house the homeless are sitting vacant in parking lots.  In other news, the FBI has re-classified the Alexandria, Virginia, baseball shooting of a few years back as ‘domestic terrorism.’  The dumb SOBs said at first it was a ‘case of suicide by cop.’  How flipping stupid do you think all of us are?  The ‘domestic terrorism’ call was the ONLY call.  (Note- for the BIG GOVERNMENT folks, they need another generation or two of misinformed souls before they can begin pulling the scams on us).
  76. 2022 Monday: We know, we’re behind…

  48. 2010 Saturday: Sudanese forces kill over 150 members of the Justice and Equality Movement in their effort to gain control of a rebel held area in Darfur.  Meanwhile, Jessica Watson, a 16-year-old Australian who’d spent seven months at sea in her pink yacht, became the youngest person to sail around the world solo, nonstop and unassisted as she arrived back home in Sydney.  Meanwhile- and this is a good one- Google admits that it has been scooping up data sent over unencrypted wi-fi networks for the past three years.  They claim it was a ‘mistake’ and that they feel bad; they also ground their fleet of ‘Street View’ cars that have been scooping up unencrypted networks as they tool around American cities.  WTF?
  49. 2011 Sunday: Suzanne Mubarak, wife of ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, has open-heart surgery after having a heart attack brought on by a corruption investigation.  Elsewhere, two suspected members of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb undergo arrest in Tunisia for carrying bombs and explosives near the city of Ramada.
  50. 2012 Tuesday: France swears in Francois Hollande, the 24th President of France.  Elsewhere, Palestinians take to the streets in the tens of thousands to protest Israel having ‘forced them out in 1948 when the Israelis declared their independence.’  Let us get this straight: PALESTINIAN leaders told their people to flee to the boonies rather than remaining and becoming something bigger and better.  Instead, they fled and have been living in squalor for the resulting decades instead of improving their lot with the billions of dollars the global community has given them.
  51. 2013 Wednesday: The Eurozone announces the sixth straight quarter of recession; Germany reports weak growth and negative growth in Spain, Italy, and France.  Elsewhere, a report from eBay hits the news about the sale of what was reputed to be the original recipe for Coca-Cola.  Apparently, the seller found it at an estate sale and listed it at the auction site for $15 million.  BOOM!  The recipe was sold for $15 million.  Truly?  Wow.
  52. 2014 Thursday: According to Brainy History, German company Linde begins constructing a facility to convert wind power to hydrogen; the plant will help Germany in its efforts to increase reliance on renewable energy sources.  Elsewhere, near a prison in Israel where Palestinian criminals, thugs, and terrorists are incarcerated, protests by other Palestinians get out of hand leading to two of them being shot and killed by Israeli troops.
  53. 2015 Friday: A jury sentenced POS jihadist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to death for the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that killed three and left more than 250 wounded.  Also, according to Brainy History, Google will begin testing self-driving cars on the streets of Mountain View, California this summer; the company has tested modified versions of existing vehicles but will now test cars developed specifically for self-driving.
  54. 2016 Sunday: Suicide bombers continue carrying out attacks across Iraq.  North of Baghdad in Taji, suicide bombers hit a plant that manufactures cooking gas killing at least 18 people and wounding God knows how many more while across the rest of the country, Islamic thugs kill another 12-15 people.  What the hell is wrong with these people?
  55. 2017 Monday: Federal prosecutors prosecute the first case of a hate crime directed at a transgender under the federal Hate Crimes Act, the murder of Mercedes Williamson.  Meanwhile, in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa, the authorities declare a state of emergency after a cholera outbreak kills at least 115 people and sickens numerous others.
  56. 2018 Tuesday: Once again, Palestinians acting crazy costs them big time.  Along the border between Gaza and Israel, Israeli security forces are forced to kill 58 and to send another 1,700-plus to the hospital because the angry rioters were protesting the moving of the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem where it belongs. 
  57. 2019 Wednesday: Angering the Pro-Death movement, Alabama passes a law restricting abortion to all but the most extreme cases.  The ban includes abortions based on rape and incest.  It is what it is.  Sadly, numerous court challenges by the Pro-Death lobby have kept it blocked from implementation.  Next, President Donald J. Trump granted a full pardon to Conrad Black, a former newspaper publisher who had written a flattering political biography of Trump.  (In 2007, a jury convicted Black of fraud in 2007 and he spent more than three years in prison).  Next, California fire officials said an investigation found that power lines owned by PG&E Corp. had sparked a blaze that killed 85 people and nearly destroyed the town of Paradise in 2018; it was the deadliest U.S. wildfire in a century. Elsewhere, Mexico City declares a state of emergency after air pollution reaches toxic levels.  How come the environmentalists are down there screeching about how Mexico is destroying the environment?
  58. 2020 Friday: Blue states continue to chafe under far-left pro-communist China governors.  In California, things continue being locked down with ultra-left Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti promising a lockdown of the city through August.  Meanwhile, nut-bag Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer continues crying about how ‘Nazis and KKK and pro-Confederacy, misogynists, and other horrible white trash are trying to drive her from office.  Bitch: YOU need to go.  Elsewhere like in New York and other states continue suffering and dying while Red States like Georgia and others that have reopened or are reopening as we speak continue to see fewer cases and far less deaths. 
  59. 2020 Friday A: COVID-19 Kung Flu stats for the day: around the globe, we have 4,534,952 confirmed cases, 307,108 confirmed deaths, BUT 1,633,185 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,472,143 confirmed cases, 88,199 confirmed deaths, and 259,834 confirmed recoveries.  In the three states in which, we have chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington state, here are the numbers, California first: 73,164 confirmed cases, 3,032 confirmed deaths, BUT 0 confirmed recoveries; the question is WHY?  Hawaii: 638 confirmed cases, 17 confirmed deaths, and 565 confirmed recoveries.  Washington state where lunatic Governor Jay Inslee demands restaurant owners follow Gestapo methods such as taking names and addresses of diners so his army of SS contact tracers can visit them (people are going to get shot), we have: 17,826 confirmed cases, 991 confirmed deaths, BUT 0 confirmed recoveries.  Like Gov. Gavin Newsom, Gov. Inslee is a political hack and deserves a swift boot in the butt and removal from office.  The American people understand WHO is responsible for this mess, it’s the communist Chinese and their Democratic Party partners.  That’s right, the REAL collusion is between Beijing and the Democratic Party.  You would have to be blind NOT to see it…
  60. 2021 Saturday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 163,142,091 confirmed cases, +607,971, 3,382,455  confirmed deaths, +11,316 and 142,540,899 confirmed recoveries, +111,035.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 33,695,247 confirmed cases, UP 24,973 from yesterday’s reporting, 599,839 confirmed deaths, UP 488,[v] and 27,097,597 confirmed recoveries, UP 390,796.  We genuinely appreciate COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[vi]   
  61. 2021 Saturday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 283,636 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 175,973 deaths.     
  62. 2021 Saturday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,767,778 confirmed cases, 62,654 confirmed deaths, and 2,010,784 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,289,522 confirmed cases, 36,065 confirmed deaths, and 1,878,129 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,637 confirmed cases, 491 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 424,708 confirmed cases, 5,679 confirmed deaths, and 204,905 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Navajo Nation: they have 30,693 confirmed cases, 1,291 confirmed deaths, and 29,294 confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  63. 2021 Saturday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 839,118 confirmed cases, 6,381 confirmed deaths, and 831,950 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Portugal, a once great colonial power: 841,848 cases of the virus, 17,006 confirmed deaths and 802,671 confirmed recoveries.[viii]     
  64. 2021 Saturday D: Friday’s Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,382.13, UP 360.68 points (+1.06%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,429.98, UP 304.99 points (+2.32%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,173.85, UP 61.35 points (+1.49%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $65.51 per barrel, +0.14 (+0.21%).  The price of GOLD is $1,844.00 per troy oz., +5.90 (+0.32%) while the price of SILVER is $27.53 per troy ounce, +0.16 (+0.58%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,231.10 per troy oz, +8.30 (+0.68%) while the price of COPPER is $4.06 per pound, +0.01 (+0.19%).[ix]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,892.50 per troy oz, +29.61 (+1.03%).[x] The price of RHODIUM is $28,400.00 per troy oz., +400.00 (+1.43%).[xi]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000021.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.44 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.85.     In Taiwan Dollar, one greenback equals 27.96 and in Tanzanian Schilling, a buck equals 2,313.00 and in Thai Baht, one dollar equals 31.36 of theirs.[xii]    
  65. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.124 per gallon, $2.894 in Florida, $3.857 in Hawaii, and $3.534 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Texas: $2.761.  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- Oman: $2.232 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,290,267,383,104 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  66. 2021 Saturday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– the so-called ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 53rd day in this ‘prestigious post’ and has yet- we repeat- has yet to visit the southern border.  Speaking of the border cataclysm, One America News reported today that the United States has spent $628,716,544 to care for the 312,151 illegals that have managed to cross into the country since New Year’s Day.  In fact, OAN reports that the total number of illegals lurking within the shadows of the country is around 35,511,034 which is what this site has said for more than a decade now, that there are between 35-50 million illegals in the country sucking away at the taxpayers’ teats.  What the hell is going on?[xvi]  Speaking of the illegal alien calamity, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, DS-CA, says that ‘California is going to bestow free healthcare on illegal aliens aged 60 and older within the no-longer-golden-state.’  And we thought this POS wanted to keep his job.  He’s a goner… In other border news, Governor Gregg Abbott, R-TX, says that enough fentanyl has been seized along the southern border to kill every man, woman, and child in the state of New York.
  67. 2021 Saturday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– Yesterday, the United States called on Azerbaijan to pull its troops back from the Armenian border.  Elsewhere, as Islamist scum continue their assault on Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says that ‘Israel is teaching the Hamas rabble and other Islamists a tough lesson that they cannot get away with attacking the state of Israel.’  Continue lighting ‘em up, Mr. Prime Minister.  Teach that riffraff a lesson they won’t soon forget.[xvii]  There are those, however, who say that Israel is the instigator in all this which is BULLS**T.  It’s BS because the hundreds of millions of dollars given to the Palestinian Authority never seems to go to making the lives of the citizens better but to keep them in squalor.  Gaza could be as prosperous as Israel is but it’s not because the money goes strictly to hate and attacks on Israel.
  68. 2021 Saturday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– At least 18 states are now lifting mask mandates forced on their citizens during the COVID-19 crisis.  Freedom is slowly beginning to return although you wouldn’t know it up north in Canada where Canadian cops are arresting preachers for holding services. 
  69. 2021 Saturday I: Joe Biden News I– President Donald J. Trump points out the sad but extremely evident truth that all the failures besetting Joe Biden demonstrates he is losing whatever weak grip he had on the United States.  The entire world can see it.  Speaking of decrepit old Joe, he is coming under increasing fire from after reporters shared information about his SECRET Venmo account, one of the most popular peer-to-peer payment apps that a guy like “Pro-China” Joe Biden can use to move money around from the Chi-Coms to the outstretched, greedy hands of family members and friends.  They call it a ‘national security risk.’   
  70. 2021 Saturday J: Joe Biden News II– House Minority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, said yesterday that ‘Joe Biden spends more time helping Hamas and Iran than he ever has Israel.’  What is up with anti-Semitic Joe Biden?  Meanwhile, a new report in the Washington Examiner suggests that when Joe Biden ‘doesn’t like’ the information he is getting from his aides, he lights them up with profanity-laced tirades, sends them trembling into the shadows of the White House.[xviii]  Sad to say, this is yet another sign of increasing dementia on the part of the ‘commander-in-chief,’ the usurper lingering in the White House.  Donald Trump must come back.  NOW.
  71. 2021 Saturday K: Joe Biden Regime News I– In other Joe Biden-related news, his pick for a sensitive position in the U.S. Department of Justice- racist Kristin Clarke- is trying to maintain her nomination by backing away from her own tirades about Republicans in general and now U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh.  This woman has used loads of hates speech against various conservatives and Senate Republicans are taking her to task for her foul-mouthed rants.  (Note- we expect they will still pass this unfit and unqualified bigot through to the Civil Rights Division.  What a disaster).  In other Biden regime news, Neera Tanden, a person who could not make it through her own confirmation due to similar problems as Ms. Clarke is now a senior White House advisor to President Susan Rice, UH, we mean, Joe Biden.  (Sorry for the gaff).
  72. 2021 Saturday L: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump wished current GOP conference chair in South Carolina- Drew McKissick- luck in his upcoming election battle.  Speaking of President Trump, he spoke to the Ohio GOP on the myriad critical issues facing the ‘Joe Biden administration.’   In other political news, even though hydrogen has proven to be the cheapest, most efficient fuel for cars of the future, Dems in California are pushing forward with ALL electric vehicles which means more coal consumption and dependence upon unreliable green energy sources.  Within the decade, they seek to eliminate all gas-fueled cars which is why this November and November 20222, the citizens of the state must send these Marx-loving liberal losers packing.  Finally, Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, is lambasting Fox News Channel for having reported she sought protection from the U.S. air marshals on her return flight home from Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she was ginning up anger the weekend before Officer Chauvin was convicted.  She can blast FNC all she likes but this sounds like something this hypocritical loser would do.[xix]
  73. 2021 Saturday M: Crime And Punishment News / Law Enforcement News– Law enforcement authorities arrested three skanks who threw a bloody pig’s head and other animal liquids over the FORMER home of a hired expert who testified in the recent trial of Officer Derek Chauvin on his behalf.  Lock these troglodyte bitches up.  Elsewhere, former Green Beret Peter Rafael Dzibinski Debbins has been given a 15-plus-year stretch in a federal prison for having spied for the Russian government for the past 15 years.  What a disgrace.
  74. 2021 Saturday N: California Lottery Results / Super Lotto And Powerball Draws– first, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3560 with a $47 million pot on the line: 06, 18, 27, 35, 36, and Mega 25.  Out of 125,985 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers for a prize of $23,053 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) South Tahoe Bottle Shop, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150 and (2) 7-11 in Torrance, CA 90501.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #847 with a $183 million pot on the line tonight: 04, 10, 37, 39, 69, and Powerball 24.  Out of 75,956 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were TWO people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $20,305 apiece.
  75. 2022 Sunday:  Stick around for whatever the news is today…

[i] Not sure as to when we will promote the music of the Little River Band, but you can be sure that one day we will.  In the 1970s, they were one of the all-time great touring rock acts and their record sales were mind-blowing.  Please, stay tuned.

[ii] We presented the music of Roxy Music at the secondary blog and hope to do it at the main blog sometime within the next 3 years. At the secondary blog, we began promoting the music of this famed British band as well as of Bryan Ferry, Andy Mackay, and Phil Manzanera beginning on Wednesday, September 07, 2016, through several successive months.  We hope you will seek them out.

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

[iv] We began promoting the music of both the Beatles and the band’s individual components on Friday, 04-November-2016 through Sunday, 11-June-2018.  Besides the Beatles, we also promoted the music of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison as well as the Traveling Wilburys.    The “Let It Be” album appeared on Saturday, 03-December-2016.  Please seek out this massive offering by visiting the blog posts between those dates. You will be glad you did.

[v] Bing seems to be covering numbers up for the Biden administration so here is where we have gone now: COVID Live Update: 151,025,351 Cases and 3,176,405 Deaths from the Coronavirus – Worldometer (worldometers.info)

[xvi] The amazing thing is that IF someone refers to the ‘replacement theory’ whereby American liberals replace the American population with low-skilled, foreign-born, poorly educated to ignorant illegal aliens, they are called ‘CRAZY’ or even worse, labeled as RACISTS.  While we hate to say this, it sure seems as though the liberals are bent on replacing the American people with illegal aliens.

[xvii] Wouldn’t it be awesome if a meteorite came down and blew the Al-Aqsa Mosque up?  That would be a sign from the heavens to be sure…

[xviii] Remember when the Fake News Media and Democrats everywhere had a massive meltdown when President Donald J. Trump supposedly called Third World nations shithole countries?  Yet, none of them say a peep about Joe Biden launching profanity-laced tirades against trembling staffers, throwing F-bombs and other foul words at them that would make even a guy like President Lyndon Baines Johnson blush? 

[xix] This amazing story has made “Prune Face” Waters our second entry onto the 4th annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Man, we hope she wins.

Currently, Joe is shy 183,514 deaths.

  69. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,858 confirmed cases, 6,375 confirmed deaths, and 831,432 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Oman, a relatively peaceful Arab country: 199,344 cases of the virus, 2,083 confirmed deaths and 181,696 confirmed recoveries.[xi]

  71. 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- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $4.086 per gallon, $2.882 in Florida, $3.820 in Hawaii, and $3.509 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Ohio: $2.824.  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- Qatar: $1.923 per U.S. Gallon.[xviii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,260,030,025,130 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.
  72. 2021 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– After much public outcry, San Diego County, California (nod to Chef Pedro) is canceling a plan on establishing a large tent city in which to house massive numbers of illegal aliens.   (Note- it’s time to rekindle Operation Wetback, an operation that began in June 1954 to deport Mexican illegals back to their country en masse, load these people onto box cars, airliners, buses, even freighters, and sending them BACK to whence the f**k they came.  Now).   Next, Cuban-born U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas says that ‘permanent status is possible for the reunited families of illegal aliens the evil Trump regime separated.  Oh, goodie.   Former Rep. Peter King, R-NY 2nd congressional district, says that ‘amnesty and reparations will increase the numbers of illegals seeking to flood our country.’  Amen.
  73. 2021 Friday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– The U.S. Military is open to training troops from other countries (i.e., mercenaries) to assume our places in Afghanistan once we pull out of that horrible country.  Why can’t we just leave?  Although, here is something we have suggested over the years: WHY not create a U.S. Foreign Legion like the French have theirs?  All the military-aged illegal alien males we can train and send oversea to fight all the wars the Military-Industrial-Political Complex wants to fight.  IF the illegals survive 25 years in the ranks, they can become citizens but not their families, friends, neighbors, or anyone else.[xx]  In other news, Chi-Com hegemony in Africa may soon give them a naval base on the Atlantic.  Wow.  Not good.   Add to that a new report that says the Chi-Coms account for 27-percent of ALL greenhouse gases emitted on the planet.
  74. 2021 Friday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– Emma Green, an Atlantic writer, says that ‘progressives are clinging to COVID-19 restrictions and lockdowns despite what the science says’ (and we always thought progressives ‘listened to science, right?) because it empowers them.  It is amazing to think how many liberal Democrats (and occasional RINO) love the power they have deciding who gets to live their lives and who doesn’t.  They are all fascists at heart.[xxi]
  75. 2021 Friday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News–  Rep. Chip Roy, R-TX 21st congressional district, is urging the Lone Star State to pass an election integrity law.  In fact, hours after debating, the Texas House of Representatives is advancing a voter integrity bill.  Next the Honest Elections Project says 77-percent of Americans- including 73-percent of black Americans- want voter ID.  So, give it to us and NOT this H.R. 1 and S.R. 1 bulls**t.   In other election news, Maricopa County, Arizona, Democrats WON’T hand over the routers used in the 2020 Elections to the state Senate investigation into election integrity.  What is up with that?   (Note- the Arizona Senate reassured the feds that election audit security is extremely high so DON’T worry).
  76. 2021 Friday J: Joe Biden Regime News I–  Biden regime hacks didn’t truly celebrate the National Day of Prayer but when bumbling old Joe Biden made a remark or two, the so-called ‘devout Catholic’ could not mention the name of God.  WTF?  In other Biden regime news, Republican senators OPPOSE a Biden regime plan with which to grant amnesty to American scientific researchers who didn’t disclose they were in bed with the Chi-Coms or other adversarial nations.  No, these scumbags should be doing time in federal prisons.   Meanwhile, we learn today that the NEXT White House Press Secretary could be a member of the LGBTQIA+ community.  Whoa.  So much for picking people based on qualifications, not what’s between their legs or the sort of sex they like.  Our money’s on a tranny.[xxii]  Finally, a Florida Atlantic University Business and Economics Polling Initiative Poll says that ‘Florida has not warmed up to “Pro-China Joe” Biden as much as Democrats were hoping.  We doubt that state ever will.
  77. 2021 Friday K: Political News I–  Rep. Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says ‘the votes are there to strip Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, of her leadership position.  Boot her ass out NOW.  If she becomes a Democrat, big flipping deal.  Next, Governor Brian Kemp, RINO-GA, is signing a bill that will prohibit ALL efforts at defunding the police within their state.  Speaking of the Peach State, Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms- once a rising star in the Democratic Party- announced that she won’t be running for a second term…that star has imploded and now is a black hole…[xxiii]
  78. 2021 Friday L: Miscellaneous News I– The U.S. Army is going to allow female personnel to wear ponytails in all uniforms.  Wow.  Big news. Next, the feds have indicted convicted Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and his three fellow officers who have not yet even gone on trial on civil rights charges.  Wow.  So much for double jeopardy, folks.  How many bites of the apple do the feds plan to take?  Moving on, California reports its first ever population decline as people are fleeing the state like it’s a hooker with facial herpes.   Finally, it now appears that President Donald J. Trump has an iron-fisted grip on the Republican Party.  Good.  IT is his and the America First Crowd’s Party.  Period.  
  79. 2021 Friday M: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the numbers for the Mega-Millions Draw #1657 with a $370 million jackpot on the line: 05, 10. 19, 21, 50, and Mega 10.  Out of 151,903 winning tickets, the highest winners were SIX people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $6,090 apiece.

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

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

[iii] We promoted the music of the Keef Hartley Band as well as of one of its integral members Miller Anderson on Monday, 02-October-2017 through Saturday, 21-October-2017.  We hope you will check their music out by visiting those posts.

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

[v] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press, 2006 is an amazing helpmate for information on this famed battle.  Seek it out.

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

[vii] We offered the music of the legendary Pacific Gas & Electric beginning on Thursday, 12-January-2012 through Sunday, 15-January-2012.  We hope you will seek out the music by this famous, interracial hippie rock band.

[xx] Just imagine, everyone from Dick Cheney to George W. Bush to Lindsey Graham and all the rest of the Neocons can fight wars all over the place.  Imagine the corporate profits from corporate wars?  How amazing would that be?

[xxi] Personally- and this is me, Chef Murph talking- if I owned the French Laundry and that little closet queen Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom had come to my restaurant to dine, after what he’s done to the hospitality and foodservice industries in the Golden State, we might have had a slip up in the mushrooms we served him and his party.  Oops, like fucking up the blowfish at the sashimi bar…

[xxii] Speaking of trannys, a Swedish hospital system is prohibiting hormone blockers for children under age 18.  Good.  About time someone began doing this.

[xxiii] Speaking astronomically of course so don’t even go there…

117. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27, 2022

1975 Sunday: North Vietnamese infantry and armor encircled Saigon on this date. Although panic grips much of the populace of South Vietnam’s capital city, South Vietnamese troops are determined to hold out for as long as they can. Had not the Democrats in the U.S. Congress prevented President Gerald R. Ford from rushing in military supplies so the ARVN troops could fight on equal terms, this humiliating defeat would never have occurred. However, the Democrats being the pro-communist scum they are left the South to its fate. Evil.

  61. 2016 Wednesday: Unlike other European countries, Austria says “F— this” by limiting asylum claimants into their country and also reserves the right to reject people at their border.  Of course, human rights groups go haywire claiming this is an afront to all humanity.  Austria, we’re with you, Germany and Angela Merkel are NOT your friends.

Biden remains mum on allegations he sexually abused a staffer back in the 1990s when he was a senator.  Say it ain’t so, Joe!

  67. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, there have been 264,711 Chi-Vi deaths in the United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.

  71. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.996 per gallon, $2.791 in Florida, $3.767 in Hawaii, and $3.421 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Mississippi: $2.569.  We are going to do something else that could be fun- gasoline prices around the world going from cheapest to highest.  The first country on the list is the second lowest gasoline price in the world- Iran: $0.227 per U.S. Gallon.[xiv]  Good for those Shiite lunatics  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,221,266,256,036 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  72. 2021 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th congressional district, upbraids the Biden regime’s plan of dumping tens of millions of dollars on the Northern Triangle countries of Central America in the hope that dumping U.S. dollars on corrupt and sometimes criminal regimes will stop the ongoing flow of illegal aliens to the United States.   Speaking of the Biden regime, a new directive prohibits ICE from arresting criminal illegal aliens at courthouses across the country.
  73. 2021 Tuesday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is going to launch a major investigation into extremists…within its own ranks.  Sounding more and more like a communist regime in the making when governmental departments begin looking for enemies within their own ranks.  Next, Joe Biden wants to give the Internal Revenue Service $80 billion so they can step up tax collections and enforcement activities against shirkers unwilling to do their duty and pay higher taxes.  Of course, Democrats in arrears with the IRS will be entirely fine.[xvi]  Moving on, Joe Biden is going to Georgia tomorrow to celebrate his 99th day in office and to blast the GOP.  Oh, he also wants to propose FREE PRESCHOOL, yet another way of getting hold of America’s kids and indoctrinating them into believing there are a billion genders.  Finally, the Washington Post is going to end its ‘fact-checking’ of the lying Joe Biden.  (Note- Fake News strikes again).
  74. 2021 Tuesday H: Foreign News / Overseas News I– With feeble old Joe Biden in the White House willing to drop to his knees in front of the Iranian mullahs if the murderous thugs will A-L-L-O-W the U.S. back into the flawed nuclear deal, what do the Iranians do?  They cause problems for the U.S. Navy in the Persian Gulf, threatening our warships who then had to drive the IRG swift boats away.  (Note- we think the U.S. should sink Iran’s entire navy).  Meanwhile, as news continues to break about John F. Kerry’s numerous Logan Act violations, there are growing calls for a thorough investigation into the scumbag’s criminal activities.  Speaking of Kerry, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘John F. Kerry’s love of the Iran nuclear deal may have clouded his judgment.’  (Note- nope, Marco- Kerry is a traitor and should be treated as such).  His fellow senator, Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘IF the Iran allegations are true, John Kerry must leave government employ.’  Amen.  Bloomberg journalist Eli Lake says that the ‘Iran talks can do without Russian diplomatic mischief’ (so says a leftist).
  75. 2021 Tuesday I: Political News I– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi is limiting attendance for Joe Biden’s first ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress.  What?  Is he going to be like, a, uh, hologram?  Whatever happens, it’s going to be hysterical.   In California, Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom is sniveling and whining about the recall effort going forward against him.  He is blaming the GOP when it’s EVERYONE wanting to get his worthless butt out of office.  Still, many believe the Democrats are going to pull a fast one and somehow preserve the Smiler’s career by having him (we said this last year when or if “Kooky Kamala” Harris actually became the VP) appoint himself U.S. senator by having Senator Dianne Feinstein step down and him take her place.   The other possibility is that he will step down so the lieutenant governor can step in, so the state remains in Democratic Party hands.  We shall see.
  76. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News II–  President Donald J. Trump has endorsed Susan Wright for the Texas 6th congressional district.  Her husband, Rep. Ron Wright, died from COVID-19 and the 45th president hopes to have his widow take his place.   Next, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is going to address a “Back the Blue” rally that is upcoming.  Speaking of the Peach State, 21 black political leaders are excoriating the Democrats for damaging their state by lying about the new voter law. 
  77. 2021 Tuesday K: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci makes yet another ‘promise’ to the American people- that the U.S. should see a ‘turning point in several weeks’ if we all do the right thing like wear masks and get the Chi-Vi vaccine.  We won’t put any money on that.   Next, although the liberals won’t give President Donald J. Trump any credit for the vaccine, they are now demanding he do a public service announcement to get his ‘Neanderthal followers’ to go out and get vaccinations- like good citizens.  What a load of crap.
  78. 2021 Tuesday K: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Famed Democratic strategist James Carville says that ‘wokeness is a problem for Democrats’ and that ‘we all know it.’   Next, news comes out that many state-run colleges now require new hires to commit to the promotion of far-left agendas.  Wow.  We knew this.  In other WOKE insanity, the CEO of VisuWell- Sam Johnson- found himself terminated from his job for asking why a foul-mouthed punk at a prom reception was wearing a dress and being a foul-mouthed little shit.  What?  People cannot say anything anymore.  This is what happens when two generations of young people don’t get the belt across their asses.  Spare the rod and spoil flipping generations.  If kids had been disciplined there would be NO WOKE movement.   Finally, Elon Musk is getting lambasted by the WOKIES about him hosting Saturday Night Live sometime next month.  WTF?  We thought Musk was a ‘cool guy.’[xvii]
  79. 2021 Tuesday L: Miscellaneous News I– Former Dallas PD Officer Amber Guyger who shot her black neighbor dead claiming she entered the wrong apartment and thought the man was an ‘intruder’ is appealing her sentence.   Next, Governor Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed three anti-abortion bills limiting when abortions can occur.  Of course, the liberals are out running amok, demanding he be removed from office.  Wah, wah, wah.  Next, Senator Cynthia Lummis, R-WY, introduced a bill today that would permit people under age 21 to buy handguns.   Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump says the ‘Democrats are insane to fight the Arizona 2020 Election audit.’  They are doing everything they can to stop it so that tells you all you need to know.
  80. 2021 Tuesday M: Miscellaneous News II– At the House GOP retreat, apparently tensions between hardcore RINO Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, are rising.  We are not sure as to why the two are having problems but of the two, Cheney is the least popular and needs to shut her mouth.  Moving on, Little Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the U.S. Transportation secretary, says that ‘from the start, Joe Biden has longed for a BIPARTISAN infrastructure bill.’  Yeah, sure.  Bulls**t.   Meanwhile, liberals are fearful that the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan is going to leave women in a dark place.  We guess we could stay there another 50 years and the plight of women in that s—hole country would…still be the same.
  81. 2021 Tuesday N: Miscellaneous News III– Britney Spears is set to speak at an upcoming court hearing regarding the highly unfair conservatorship in which, her father has placed her.   Next, states are fearful of SCOTUS taking the new concealed carry of firearms case in that it might lessen their power.  You can’t trust Chief Justice John Roberts. 
  82. 2021 Tuesday O: California Lottery Results / Mega-Millions Draw: Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1654 with a $319 million on the line: 15, 22, 30, 41, 42, and Mega 25.  Out of 120,216 winning tickets, the highest winners were THREE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $10,640 apiece.

  84. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 570,481 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 205,726 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 462 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

  88. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.680 per gallon, $4.168 in Florida, $5.249 in Hawaii, and $4.687 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Mississippi- $3.776.  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 29th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Pakistan: $3.035 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,412,638,051,610 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Ireland the FIFTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Luxembourg.  This nation holds $288,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The world-famous ‘border czar,’ Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the disaster befalling the country for the past 390 days.  Worse than that, it’s been 304 days since last she showed up to do a photo op.  The cost of caring for these uninvited illegal aliens for the past 117 days is a shocking $745,967,001.  Atop that, since the two derelicts became the ‘guardians of the Constitution and the American people,’ the nation has shelled out $42,491,772,744 to care for the leeches.  Since the first day of the year, we have seen 1,192,049 illegal aliens pour across the border and into the interior of the country.  NOT good.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegal aliens living in the country is 46,623,706.  We believe the number is treble that, possibly quadruple that.  NO nation can withstand this invasion, perhaps not even until November.  Our nation could soon be lost.  Time for Operation Wetback II.  Let’s round ‘em up and deport them ASAP out of the country and back to whence they came. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  90. 2022 Wednesday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I– A new poll says that nearly half of all Israelis fear a second Holocaust is brewing.  Next, Russia releases American hostage, Trevor Reed, home to his family in an exchange for a Russian drug trafficker locked up in the United States.  The parents of Mr. Reed said it appeared their son’s treatment at the hands of the Russians was horrible.  F**king Russians.  Time to nuke them.   Speaking of the Russians and their horrible treatment of those whom they don’t like, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is demanding global control over Russia’s nuclear weapons stockpile.  Ukraine fears that the Russians might nuke them the more the Ukrainians continue mopping the floor with Russian blood.

  97. 2022 Wednesday N: Political News I– A new bill has come forth seeking to reinstate ALL U.S. military personnel terminated for refusing to undergo vaccination for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu virus.  Excellent.  Bring them back.  In other news, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas testifies on Capitol Hill where we learn that the Biden regime spent $72 million to extricate itself from federal contracts with which to complete construction on the border wall.  Wow.  Secretary Mayorkas says the Trump administration ruined the immigration system but has NO fixes to stop the seething tidal wave of humanity pouring across it.  Instead, he says that domestic extremism- WHITE POWER EXTREMISM- is the most potent threat facing Americans today.  While DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was testifying before Congress, he raised concerns over what he said is the establishment of a ‘disinformation board’ with which to combat ‘misinformation.’  The board will be headed by ultra-leftist Nina Jankowicz, a fellow at the Wilson Center.
  98. 2022 Wednesday O: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3659 what with a $37 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 03, 11, 13, 23, 34, and Mega 23.  Out of 121,094 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $21,088 apiece.  One ticket was sold at the Arco AM/PM in Perris, CA 92571 while the other was sold at 7-Eleven in Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #981 with a jackpot of $454 million up for grabs: Out of 180,291 winning tickets, SIX people had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $16,226 apiece.

[ii] We should have shared the music of Badfinger at the time we promoted that of the Beatles but guess what?  We flipping failed just as we failed to promote the music of Thunderclap Newman at the same time, we did the Who.  One day, we sure as heck will so, please remain vigilant.

28. 1954 Wednesday: The People’s Army is launching an all-out assault on the Foreign Legion held strongpoint of Huguette 1. The communists have labored to dig approach trenches right up to the wire as well as to pull in heavy weapons for close range support. According to some Legion survivors, the last that was seen of their comrades was that they were fighting back-to-back atop the command bunker, throwing back one human wave assault after another of howling communists until finally, everything fell into silence. Still, the fighting at Dien Bien Phu will continue.

  57. 2012 Saturday: Playing against the Seattle Mariners, Chicago White Sox pitcher, Philip Humber, pitches the 21st perfect game in MLB history and the third perfect game in team history.  Elsewhere, following the problems the Secret Service experienced at the 6th Annual Summit of the Americas in Colombia where agents engaged the services of Colombian hotties while on site protecting President Barack Hussein Obama, three more agents are fired.
  58. 2013 Sunday:  Due to disorderly conduct, police in Atlanta, Georgia, arrest actress Reese Witherspoon.  Elsewhere, North Korea announces that it’s going to move two more missile launchers to its east coast for an upcoming missile test.  Of course, the entire world is shocked and horrified.   Meanwhile, Nigeria and Boko Haram jihadist thugs are doing battle with one another resulting in nearly 200 people being killed.  (Note- this is what God gave mankind the neutron bomb for: for eliminating Islamist garbage).
  59. 2014 Monday:  The New York Knicks fire Coach Mike Woodson after a season in which the Knicks began as champions and ended with elimination.  Elsewhere Russian separatists n the eastern Ukraine claim that two of their number have been pulled from a river, covered in stab wounds.  This is a horrendous outrage and of course the Russians are angry.  Like the Nazis in 1939 prior to the invasion of Poland also needed a pretext for invasion and so they engineered one.  Vladimir Putin is a good student.  (Note- the Russians probably killed a couple of Chechens).
  60. 2015 Tuesday: Former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, a true jihadist if one ever existed, receives a 20-year stint in an Egyptian hoosegow for hundreds of protesters he had killed when he was the nation’s president.   Elsewhere, following the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is going to launch a federal investigation into the incident.

  64. 2019 Easter Sunday: “Climate activist” Greta Thunberg[vi] speaks at an “Extinction Rebellion” where like-minded, Kool-Aid-drinking (and modern-day Hitler Jugend-like brain-dead zombies) terrorize the city of London.  Waterloo Bridge had been closed for four days as legions of youthful nuts occupied it as they demonstrated their mass insanity over the impending DOOM of the world.  Yeah, right.  Elsewhere, ISIS carries out a string of bombings in Sri Lanka, attacking churches and hotels where Christians might be.  At least 359 people are killed outright with another 500 ore more seriously wounded.  The United States and Pope Francis condemn the attacks.
  65. 2020 Tuesday: COVID-19 Morning Update–  The confirmed world cases of the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis are 2,501,156 what with the confirmed number of global deaths sitting at 171,810 but 659,737 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we acknowledge a total confirmed cases at 800,932 with 43,006 confirmed deaths but 73,379 confirmed recoveries.  As for the Chinese statistics, IF you enjoy fairy tales, IF you enjoy fantasy fiction, the communist government claims 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries, pretty much the same as yesterday’s number and the day before that and so on and so forth.  Let this be a life lesson to everyone that communists, socialists, democratic-socialists, and every other left-wing ideology always lie to cover their tracks.  Do not believe anything the False China says.  Meanwhile, word continues trickling out that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is ‘recovering from a cardiac event or cardiac surgery which could be true just as he might be dead due to the ill effects of a coup.  We will remain vigilant and report the truth when we learn it.
  66. 2020 Tuesday A: COVID-19 Evening Update– As of tonight, the world claims 2,563,384 confirmed cases of China’s lab-engineered virus, the Kung Flu.  The world stats show there are 177,415 confirmed deaths what with 681,477 confirmed recoveries.  IN the United States, there are 824,698 confirmed cases what with 45,297 confirmed deaths, and 75,050 confirmed recoveries.  As for the world’s ‘friends,’ the communist Chinese, they still claim 88,423 confirmed cases what with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  As we say, “Communists always lie and so the Chinese continue doing so.”  Soon, they will be paying the price as almost every nation encircling the globe is suffering from this unnecessary disaster. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday: COVID-19 STATISTICS For The Planet As A Whole: 143,012,106 confirmed cases, +1,198,849, 3,046,149  confirmed deaths, +18,967, and 81,979,884 confirmed recoveries, +863,743.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,039,261 confirmed cases, UP 160,965 from yesterday’s reporting, 574,418 confirmed deaths, UP 1,717, and 119,049,871 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii] 
  68. 2021 Wednesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 250,546 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another four to five weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Speaking of ‘Vegetable Joe,’ he has some cockamamie plan with which to offer tax credits to people getting the Chi-Vi vaccines.  Speaking of the Bat Flu vaccines, the FDA has found multiple irregularities in the plant manufacturing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine what with peeling paint, rodent droppings, and other things in need of correction.  NO wonder people are getting flipping blood clots (not to mention that the J & J vaccine utilizes fetal tissue culled from aborted fetuses for both manufacturing and testing.  This ain’t good, folks).
  69. 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: 3,723,271 confirmed cases, 61,083 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,184,354 confirmed cases, 34,616 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,817 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 390,415 confirmed cases, 5,451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Nebraska, the home of the Cornhuskers: they have 217,108 confirmed cases, 2,349 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]

  72. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.976 per gallon, $2.814 in Florida, $3.755 in Hawaii, and $3.390 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Massachusetts: $2.757.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,197,874,203,119 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  
  73. 2021 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ongoing Border Catastrophe– Things are going to hell along the southern border that Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, is calling up the National Guard and deploying them to his state’s border with Mexico.  In fact, Senators Mark Kelly, D-AZ, and Kyrsten Sinema support the governor’s efforts to halt the invasion.   Meanwhile, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle want to know WHEN Joe Biden or “Kooky Kamala” Harris is going to visit the border and behold the BORDER CATASTROPHE that is occurring there 24/7.  This must stop.  NOW.
  74. 2021 Wednesday G: Crime And Punishment News / U.S. Department Of Justice News–  Senile old hag, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, continues blathering on about how ‘great it was for George Floyd to give up his life and to call out for his mama’ as he lay dying beneath the knee of convicted murderer and former Police Officer Derek Chauvin.  The leftists being what they are ALWAYS require martyrs so they can forge ahead with their sick agenda and poor Mr. Floyd was just another brick in the Democratic-Socialists’ wall.  Speaker Pelosi must lose her seat in 2022.  Meanwhile, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced that the feds are launching an investigation into the Minneapolis Police Department in a renewed drive to federalize as many police departments as possible.  This is what socialist-communist societies do, they bump up local law enforcement to federal level so they can then move them around- like the People’s Republic of China- so that law enforcement has NO ties to the communities they serve which leads to greater police brutality and mistreatment of the citizenry.  You can count on it.  This is precisely what the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act (or whatever BS name it goes by) is all about, federalizing ALL local and state law enforcement.  In other crime news, following the police shooting of a young black female attacking another with a butcher knife in Columbus, Ohio, last night, Democrats and their ‘tool’s like LeBron James are screeching for blood.  Someone, please, kick LeBron’s stupid ass.  Finally, a Virginia cop was fired- we repeat, FIRED- for donating $25 to Kyle Rittenhouse’s defense fund.  WTF?  Lt. William Kelly, an internal affairs officer in the Norfolk, Virginia, police department was terminated when his superiors learned of this callous doing in a FREE country.  Wow.
  75. 2021 Wednesday H: Crime And Punishment News Ii– After the Chauvin verdict yesterday, ‘peaceful protesters,’ aka Antifa, in Portland, Oregon, assaulted people on the street, set Starbucks stores ablaze, and attacked cops on the street.  Speaking of Officer Chauvin, he is being held in protective custody, i.e., in solitary confinement, to protect him from his fellow inmates.   Meanwhile, the four detestable skanks of the Squad, Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district, Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, Ayanna “Chrome Dome” Pressley, DS-MA 7th congressional district, and newbie Cori “The B***h” Bush, DS-MO 1st congressional district, are driving up race hatred across the country while having the taxpayers spend tens of thousands of dollars to PROTECT THEM.  
  76. 2021 Wednesday I: Foreign News / Overseas News I– In the case of ‘comfort women’ used by Imperial Japanese forces in the Pacific during World War II, South Korea- a country from which many of the sex slaves were taken- sides with Japan.   Speaking of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in says that ‘President Donald J. Trump failed to solve the North Korean problem.’  Uh, okay, but he gave it a better shot than any president since Ronald Reagan.   Next, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that the Chi-Coms WON’T reduce carbon emissions, nor will they slow their growth as the United States will willingly do.’  He is 100-percent correct.
  77. 2021 Wednesday J: Joe Biden Administration News I– Joe Biden is sending members of his Cabinet out to the various states to shill for his INFRASTRUCTURE PLAN, the one that costs $3.2 trillion, that very few want.   Speaking of the faux president, the Associate Press reports that Joe Biden plans to halve CO2 emissions by 2030 which means higher energy costs, less energy reliability, and a diminished middle class.   Next, Joe Biden plans to use his upcoming address to a joint session of Congress supposedly sometime in May to push for POLICE REFORM across the country.   Meanwhile, a stuttering and stammering Joe Biden says that he believes the bar to ‘convict cops is too high.’   Maybe you should zip your lips until AFTER justice has occurred there, Mr. Faux President.
  78. 2021 Wednesday K: Political News I– Book publishers, Simon & Schuster announce that they reject a petition demanding they DON’T publish a book by Vice President Mike R. Pence.  They are going to move ahead with publication, damn the torpedoes.  Next, RINO King former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, N.J., says he could run for the White House in 2024.  It will be to YOUR embarrassment there, Big Boy.  Speaking of New Jersey, they are going to permit Gender “X” on the state’s driver’s licenses and identification cards.  Oh, goodie, kowtowing to the freaks yet again.   Meanwhile, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that failing to censure Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, yesterday has weakened both the U.S. House of Representatives and the Department of Justice.  As you know, she went to Minneapolis, Minnesota, over the weekend to stir up a lynch mob and to intimidate the jury in the trial of now-convicted murderer, Derek Chauvin.
  79. 2021 Wednesday L: Political News II– It appears that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, RINO, is becoming vulnerable amid ongoing attacks by President Donald J. Trump.  Former Democrat-turned-Republican and former state Representative Vernon Jones, GA 91st district,  is in a powerful position to knock Governor Kemp out in the primary election of next year.  Meanwhile, ever-drooling, nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is floating the idea of a BIPARTISAN January 06, 2021, Commission to get to the bottom of the False Flag, Antifa-and-Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters that then became a mob and stormed Capitol Hill.  (Note- it does not require loads of intelligence to visualize that most of those people storming the Capitol, waving Confederate flags and what not weren’t crazed leftists bent on intimidating true protesters, lawmakers, and the American people into accepting what they know was stolen: the 2020 Presidential Election).  
  80. 2021 Wednesday M: Political News III–  Next, the FBI releases a report on the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, the one that occurred on June 14, 2007, in Alexandria, Virginia, when a crazed BERNIE SANDERS VOTER attacked a baseball practice for House Republicans.  The FBI decided that the slain shooter, James Hodgkinson wanted to carry out a…wait for it…suicide by cop.  That’s right, that’s what the esteemed Federal Bureau of Investigation- in the hands of ‘highly capable’ Director Chris Wray pulled out of their hat.  What a deduction.  How sad is our world today?  Our government has become fully corrupted and it’s a shocking thing to behold for patriots.
  81. 2021 Wednesday N: California Lottery Results– Here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3553 with a $40 million jackpot on the line: 03, 12, 17, 41, 42, and Mega 23.  Out of 114,936 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $40,636.   The winning ticket was sold at Fast Stop in Lake View Terrace, CA 91342.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #838 with a $90 million pot up for grabs: 21, 25, 32, 63, 67, and Powerball 06.  Out of 50,586 winning tickets in California, the highest winner was ONE person who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $27,206.
  82. 2021 Wednesday O: In Long Beach Township, New Jersey, former member of the Four Seasons- bassist Joe LaBracio, aka Joe Long (1965-1975)- died at age 88.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 568,290 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 203,535 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 456 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  85. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,173,641 confirmed cases, 89,980 confirmed deaths, and 8,934,741 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,939,573 confirmed cases, 73,789 confirmed deaths, and 5,806,452 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 238,065 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,479,559 confirmed cases, 12,650 confirmed deaths, and 1,439,677 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Guam: they have 47,902 confirmed cases, 354 confirmed deaths, and 47,259 confirmed recoveries.[xviii]   
  86. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,047,693 confirmed cases, 10,658 confirmed deaths, and 4,009,152 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Falklands Islands, 219th place on the list: 128 cases of the virus, 0 confirmed death and 128 confirmed recoveries.[xix]

  88. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.689 per gallon, $4.113 in Florida, $5.243 in Hawaii, and $4.684 in Washington state.[xxiii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Massachusetts- $4.124.  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 23rd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Colombia: $2.398 per U.S. Gallon.[xxiv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,399,844,953,328 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do which is not good- those two bastards should have met their ends on the chopping block.  As for holders of U.S. debt, after Australia the next largest holder of U.S. debt is United Arab Emirates.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  89. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Russian President Vladimir Putin is declaring ‘victory over Mariupol’ even though the Ukrainian defenders fighting in the ruins of the steel factory continue killing Russians by the score.  They will not surrender and it’s clear to any observer that Mariupol could become Putin’s Stalingrad, sort of a Putingrad.  Going to be good watching them annihilate the Russians.  In other areas where Ukrainian civilians have been victimized and crushed, the Russians are raising red victory flags.  Sounds like the Soviet Union is struggling to return for Round 2.  The Russians are preparing ‘referendums in the occupied areas’ so the grateful Ukrainians can kowtow to their Soviet masters.
  90. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– Although it would be a good show of support for the United States to reopen its embassy in Kyiv, the Biden regime is resisting calls for it to do this morale-boosting step.  WTF is up with slobbering Joe?   Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says his country requires $7 billion per month to sustain his nation and its fight against the Russians.  Today, we also learned that money Joe Biden is sending to Ukraine also is helping to pay its civil service.  Wow.  In other news, Russia has slapped travel bans on Vice President Kamala Harris, the REAL PRESIDENT Ron Klain, and on Meta-Facebook’s ‘Little Mark’ Zuckerberg.
  91. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– The 8th busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in Washington, D.C., today.  Keep ‘em coming.  Next, 21 red states are joining forces to stop the Biden regime ending Title 42 on May 23.  Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the U.S.-Mexico border for the past 384 days and it’s been 298 days since she arrived to do the job.  Since the first day of the year, the cost of caring for the illegal aliens is $707,111,130.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the Biden-Harris regime took charge is $42,452,916,873.  The number of illegals who have entered the U.S. since January 01, 2022, is an appalling 1,129,483.  The conservative low estimate of illegals living in the U.S. is 46,561,140.  We believe the truer number is close to 85-125 million illegal aliens. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).
  92. 2022 Thursday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban meets with Pope Francis with the Russo-Ukrainian War as their backdrop.  Meanwhile, mystery continues surrounding WNBA star Britney Griner’s arrest and imprisonment in Russia.  In other horrifying news, Beijing has inked deals with the Solomon Islands and with Kiribati so its ships and security personnel can use them as ‘transit sites.’  (Note- the United States fought at Guadalcanal in the Solomon Islands and at Tarawa in present-day Kiribati during World War II and now the Chi-Coms have built forward bases threatening not only Australia and New Zealand but Hawaii and Guam as well as continues the isolation of Taiwan).
  93. 2022 Thursday J: Health and Medical Alerts– U.S. Senate candidate in Pennsylvania, Dr. Mehmet Oz, says, ‘it’s time to for the U.S. to get back to reality on COVID-19.’  Next, the U.S. claims it’s extending COVID-19 vaccine mandates for illegal aliens at the southern border.  Uh, okay, sure you are.  Illegals can run around without following any COVID-19 mandates while the Biden regime is appealing the judge’s recent ruling ending mask mandates on public transit.
  94. 2022 Thursday K: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News– (1) Pfizer: $49.11 (2) AstraZeneca: $67.39 (3) Novavax: $48.80 (4) Merck & Company: $86.23 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $183.36  (6) BioNTech: $147.84 (7) Moderna: $144.50.

  99. 2022 Thursday P: Joe Biden Regime News I– The Biden regime is launching a new program with which it claims it will beckon in Ukrainian refugees but not across the U.S.-Mexico border.  That is for the Russians, the Third World, and the Chi-Coms to push their agents across amidst the sea of illegal aliens.  Next, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain- uh, ‘President’ Joe Biden- announces another $800 million in military aid to Ukraine.  How much will the Biden Family skim off the top?  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the Biden regime has banned Russian vessels from visiting American ports.
  100. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News II– The FAA is going to review the parachute stunt that occurred yesterday in the nation’s Capital that caused a mass evacuation from the U.S. Capitol Building.  Next, here is one that is a head-scratcher: the U.S. Supreme Court is backing Joe Biden’s decision to DENY benefits to Puerto Rico.  What benefits are we discussing?  Well, these federal benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens.  These benefits provide help to low-income, elderly, and blind citizens and Joe Biden- with the support of the John Roberts’ Supreme Court is denying these benefits to low-income, elderly, and blind Puerto Ricans.  Where the hell is Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, on this topic?  Her Abuelita lives in the PR so she should be screeching like a flipping banshee, yet she’s silent.  (Note- the chief justice must truly fear the Dems packing the court as why would he back a crazy move such as this?)
  101. 2022 Thursday R: Joe Biden Regime News III– Thirteen of the victims of Larry Nassar are suing the Federal Bureau of Investigation for $130 million for having f**ked up the investigation into the perverted coach.  Next, the Biden regime has contracted the release of another 30 million barrels of oil from the nation’s Strategic Petroleum Reserve.  We suspect that like previous withdrawals under the Biden regime, this oil will flow overseas to our ‘allies’ and not to the American people.  Speaking of the oil rip-off, Rep. Rick W. Allen, R-GA 12th district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s energy policies are bringing pain to the American people.’
  102. 2022 Thursday S: Joe Biden Regime News IV– U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen weighed the cost of the Russo-Ukrainian War on Russia’s frozen assets.  Next, Vice President Kamala Harris has lost her 13th staffer- this time, her Chief of Staff Tina Flournoy.  What can you say?  The VP is a bitch who slept her way to the top.  This is fitting justice for one half of this fraudulent administration, YOU steal an election, Karma has a way of coming back and biting you on your ass and this administration is going down the crapper.  Next, left-wing, Obama economist Austan Goolsbee says that the pandemic shutdowns are the main cause of the sky-rocketing inflation eating away at average Americans’ bank accounts.
  103. 2022 Thursday T: Nancy Pelosi’s January 06-2021 False Flag Operation– Famed radio talk show host, Infowars’ Alex Jones, is seeking immunity from the January 06, 2021, Select House Committee.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. is expected to meet with this sham committee.
  104. 2022 Thursday U: Political News I– Although this sounds somewhat hopeful, the Cook Political Report says that 27 Democrat-controlled House seats are in the toss-up column in November.   Next, U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd congressional district, denies ever having advised President Donald J. Trump that ‘if they impeach you, you should resign.’  He would never have said something such as that, huh.  We are beginning to suspect Leader McCarthy is in the same class with “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell and Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT.
  105. 2022 Thursday V: Political News II– Never say that President Donald J. Trump’s endorsements don’t matter (although this one leaves us puzzled).  J.D. Vance- venture capitalist and author- has seen his lead in the race for retiring Senator Rob Portman’s seat in Ohio has leapt by 7 points to the good.  One of his Republican challengers- Mike Gibbons- says he still can’t forget that Vance voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Neither can we.
  106. 2022 Thursday W: Political News III–  Talk about turning something once good into a piece of festering cow crap, other than Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, the JFK Profiles in Courage Award is going to Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY At-large district, as well as to Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, DS, the Copper State’s House Speaker Rusty Bowers, RINO, and to Peach State Election Department employee Wandrea “Shaye” Moss.
  107. 2022 Thursday X: Big Tech News– In a ‘put up or shut up move,’ tech multi-billionaire Elon Musk has $46.5 billion in cash with which to buy Twitter.  The price he is offering is $54.20.  Next, folks, it’s so successful that following its launch on March 29, 2022, it’s official: CNN+ is shutting down on April 30, 2022.  Adios, Chris Wallace.  POS.  In other news, the Florida House of Representatives voted to strip Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges.  This did not come easy, however, as Democrats and their rent-a-mobs of LGBTQIA+ crazed psychos tried to carry out an ‘insurrection’ a la January 6, 2021, of their own although very few news media sites are labeling it as such- but we will.
  108. 2022 Thursday Y: Sports News I– Here’s an interesting one: the NFL says that the black coaches’ discrimination lawsuits lack merit.  Wow.  We thought the NFL was all WOKE now and here they are throwing the black coaches’ suits under the bus.  Shame on them.
  109. 2022 Thursday Z: Miscellaneous News I– The Pro-Death Movement in Kentucky gains a temporary win what with a stay on the state’s new anti-abortion law.  For some reason, the Trump campaign has been ordered to pay $1.3 million in damages and attorneys’ fees to former adviser Omarosa Manigault.  Finally, some glorious film hit the news cycle today.  Some dumbass airlines passenger was hassling Mike Tyson during a flight and wouldn’t take ‘buzz off’ for an answer.  The former heavyweight champion turned around and punched the living shit out of this dimwit who then posted photos of his bloody face on TikTok.  Will they ever learn?

[i] The music of this famed British band, Family as well as the spin-off group, Streetwalkers, appeared on Tuesday, 08-October-2013 through Thursday, 31-October-2013.  Sadly, at the time, we failed to promote the music of both Axis Point as well as Roger Chapman’s solo catalog so we hope to correct those mistakes sometime within the next five years.

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

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

110. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, APRIL 20, 2022

When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately. Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico. The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals. What a day that will be.

Bush.  Of course, the Saudis denied this blatant attempt to sully their good nature.
  59. 2005 Wednesday: The BBC reports that the Tigris River in Iraq is becoming polluted with bodies, many with their throats cut and others completely decapitated.  Many believe these people were discovered to have been working with the occupation authorities.

  61. 2007 Friday: The state of Virginia begins the observance of a day of mourning for the victims of the Virginia Tech Massacre.  Of course, people want to take guns away from law-abiding people but never from the criminals and the nuts who utilize them to commit evil acts.

  70. 2017 Thursday: In Paris, a police van transporting criminals along the Champs Elysees suffers an attack by jihadists killing police officer and injuring two others.   Elsewhere, Australia beefs up its qualifications for one to become a citizen in their country by amending laws to demand stricter knowledge of the English language as well as a desire to become Australian and not remain some foreign-born piece of pond scum.  Wouldn’t it be great if the United States would do this?
  71. 2018 Friday: A federal court in Mexico declares sale of the controversial Barbie doll depicting artist, Frida Kahlo, cannot occur.  Not sure as to what the reasoning behind this is but folks, it is what it is.    Meanwhile, in the race for 2020, Senators Ron Johnson, R-WI, and “Little Bob” Corker, RINO-TN, opt NOT to endorse President Trump in the race for a second term.  Question is, “WHY?”  However, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, says that he will endorse President Trump for a second term.
  72. 2019 Saturday: Even though the Trump administration is going after ISIS, they still manage to cause damage and in Syria, over the past couple of days they have managed to kill at least 50 Syrian army soldiers and wound numerous others.  Doesn’t say much about the training given them by Russia or Iran.  Meanwhile, much to the dismay of the far-left liberals, the Mueller Report says, “NO Trump-Russia collusion but the possibility of obstruction still exists.’  Elsewhere, Central American illegal aliens trying to get into the United States are saying the Mexicans are abusing them as they hover around the southern border of their country and the United States.’
  73. 2020 Monday: The world continues suffering under the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis that is spreading around the world.  Today, we have 2,458,150 confirmed cases of the disease what with 168,906 confirmed deaths and 643,918 confirmed recoveries.   The Chinese claim 88,423 confirmed cases with 4,632 confirmed deaths and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, the United States sees 789,439 confirmed cases what with 42,186 confirmed deaths, and 71,675 confirmed recoveries as of mid-day.  It is interesting to note that China’s figures change little from day to day which suggests they are either lying to the rest of the world or possess the cure which says a lot about communist governments.
  74. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics For The Planet As A Whole: 141,813,257 confirmed cases, +399,077, 3,027,182  confirmed deaths, +7,522, and 81,116,141 confirmed recoveries, +327,427.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,976,092 confirmed cases, UP 108,718 from yesterday’s reporting, 573,551 confirmed deaths, UP 924, and 119,041,372 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vii] 
  75. 2021 Tuesday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 248,829 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.    Meanwhile, a new study suggests that the ‘VID can affect the lungs via the gums.  Elsewhere, the European Union announces it will restart receiving shipments of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine despite reports of RARE BLOOD CLOTS afflicting some recipients of the vaccine.
  76. 2021 Tuesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,720,794 confirmed cases, 61,006 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,178,783 confirmed cases, 34,533 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,779 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 388,842 confirmed cases, 5,439 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Kansas, the home of the conservative Midwest: they have 308,518 confirmed cases, 5,005 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[viii]   
  77. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 837,309 confirmed cases, 6,342 confirmed deaths, and 828,761 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Kuwait, the supposed missing province of Iraq: 258,497 cases of the virus, 1,456 confirmed deaths and 241,696 confirmed recoveries.[ix]    
  78. 2021 Tuesday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,821.30, DOWN 256.33 points (-0.75%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,786.27, DOWN 128.50 points (-0.92%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,134.94, DOWN 28.32 points (-0.68%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.42 per barrel, -0.25 (-0.40%).  The price of GOLD is $1,779.20 per troy oz., +0.80 (+0.04%) while the price of SILVER is $25.88 per troy ounce, +0.04 (+0.14%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,189.50 per troy oz, -6.80 (-0.57%) while the price of COPPER is $4.20 per pound, -0.01 (-0.21%).[x]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,761.73 per troy oz, -49.92 (-1.78%).[xi] The price of RHODIUM is $29,500.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.72%).[xii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000017.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.50 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.98.     In Icelandic Krona, one greenback equals 125.91 and in Indian Rupee, a buck equals 75.38.[xiii]   
  79. 2021 Tuesday E: U.S. National Debt And Gasoline Prices In The Three States In Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.974 per gallon, $2.818 in Florida, $3.749 in Hawaii, and $3.385 in Washington state.[xiv]    Let’s look at one other location- Louisiana: $2.611.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,193,749,804,750 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  In other business news, Netflix fails to meet paid subscriber predictions which leads to a subsequent fall in its shares.
  80. 2021 Tuesday F: Crime And Punishment News– Stammering Joe Biden says he ‘hopes the jury in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin reaches the right verdict.’   Next, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob “The Jerk” Frey says, “No matter the verdict, George Floyd died at the hands of the police.”  (Note- the police are under HIS control).   We were wrong: Judge Peter A. Cahill reads the verdicts and Officer Derek Chauvin is convicted on ALL charges.  Officer Chauvin stands to face 40 years in the slammer although esteemed legal scholar Dr. Alan Dershowitz believes that Maxine “Prune Face” Waters did enough to cause a mistrial (see below).  In an interesting aside, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, gave a schizophrenic statement thanking ‘George Floyd for dying, for calling out to his mother on camera’ so the Dems could utilize his untimely demise to benefit the ongoing attempt to transform our country into a socialist s**t-hole.
  81. 2021 Tuesday G: Social Media And Big Tech– The United Kingdom is considering launching their own digital currency, the so-called “Britcoin.”  Next, Facebook is developing new audio products, products with which we suspect they will listen in on their users’ conversations.  Elsewhere, Apple is going to permit Parler to be offered in its App Store.  Big flipping deal.  Speaking of Apple, they are going to reveal new products today in a virtual store.
  82. 2021 Tuesday H: RINO News– Not to be outdone by former House Speaker John “Too Much Flipping Tanning Booth” Boehner, former President George W. Bush has to chime in and add his two cents on the modern GOP.  He says the Republican Party is ‘isolationist, protectionist, and nativist,’ lamenting the fact that he failed to get ‘comprehensive immigration reform taken care of when HE was president.’  Sadly, Republicans knew what he and the RINO wing of the GOP meant when they talked about ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ meant amnesty for millions with a pathway to citizenship for all.’  We did not want that then, George, and we don’t want it now and if you want to make sure the Bush Family name remains toxic, continue talking, George.  Voting for another Bush would mean legalizing the illegal and another justice like the loser chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, John Roberts.   IF Jeb were to run again, yikes, NO MORE BUSHES!
  83. 2021 Tuesday I: Democratic-Socialist News– A new poll says that a large majority of the American people are concerned with the fact that Joe Biden appears to be a slobbering idiot much of the time.  We are concerned, too.   Speaking of Joe Biden, a Missouri college student is suing the Biden administration allowing trannys, i.e., chicks with dicks, into female-only college dorms.   Next, Michigan’s GOP announced they had discovered that Governor “Gravel Gertie” Gretchen Whitmer AND her staff took a secret vacation to Florida while demanding everyone else remain indoors wearing 4-5 masks.   Elsewhere, a new poll demonstrates that white liberals typically have far more mental problems than do everyone else.  We agree with that study.  Meanwhile, as criticism continues rolling in blasting Rep. Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, she dismisses it as ‘nothing’ even though she did the same thing that supposedly got President Donald J. Trump impeached a second time.   (Interesting note- “Prune Face” Waters sought a police escort when she landed in Minneapolis to the protest scene so she could stir the pot without having to fear for her safety.  Wow).  Speaking of “Prune Face,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy is pushing a bill to censure the decrepit old rabble rouser and to remove her from her committee assignments.  Go for it.  (Note- the Democrats blocked this move).
  84. 2021 Tuesday J: Political News I– President Donald J. Trump says he is considering a run for the White House in 2024.  Elsewhere, Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says that ‘Joe Biden turned his back on the people of his state by going after coalminers when 43-percent of the world’s energy is derived from coal.’  This is true, the United States is the ‘Saudi Arabia of coal’ what with the best here such as anthracite and bituminous coal beneath our feet.   Moving on, Senator Marsha Blackburn says that asking for Voter ID is NOT racist.  We agree.  One needs ID for everything else including welfare checks, liquor, and pot purchases, picking up tickets, buying cigarettes, boarding airplanes- unless one is an illegal alien- you name it, you must show ID so WTF?[xvi] 
  85. 2021 Tuesday K: Political News II– Officials in Indiana reveal that laws regarding firearms in their state would have done NOTHING to have stopped the mass shooting at the FedEx facility a week or so ago.  Next, in Arizona, students can now attend school in person and without having to wear face masks.  However, when the state’s mask mandate ends in May, Oregon is considering passing a law that will require faces masks on everyone forever.  That is correct- FOREVER.  Crazy flipping left-wing socialists.  Next, President Donald J. Trump is urging ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden to reinstate the travel ban that protected the nation so well from the Chi-Vi pandemic.   Speaking of President Donald J. Trump, Ohio GOP lawmakers want to rename a state park for the 45th president.   Speaking of befuddled old Joe Biden, he backs a bill to make Washington, D.C., the 51st state.  People, just return the land to Maryland.  Enough!
  86. 2021 Tuesday L: Political News III– The U.S. ambassador to Moscow, John Sullivan, is coming home for consultations after Joe Biden continues slandering Vladimir Putin.  Speaking of Mr. Putin and Russia, the word from Moscow is ‘IF Joe Biden wants a summit with Mr. Putin, it will depend on U.S. actions.’   Elsewhere, in Florida, Republican Governor Ron DeSantis signs a bill that will allow the state to tax $1 billion in online purchases.   Next, North Carolina won’t pass a bill banning youth tranny procedures.  NOT right.  Wait until you’re 18 and then if you wish to destroy your body, it’s ON YOU.   Meanwhile, Willie Nelson is encouraging Joe Biden to make the ‘pot holiday’ an official one.   Finally, like Gary Gilmore in Utah back in 1977, a death row inmate in Nevada, Zane Michael Floyd, wants the option of being executed via firing squad.   Finally, Los Angeles, California, Mayor Eric “The Grub” Garcetti, NOT TO BE OUTDONE BY FELLOW LEFTISTS, is proposing a universal basic income (that ONLY minorities will receive).
  87. 2021 Tuesday M: Political News IV– Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that “WOKE” companies will feel a backlash in the aftermath of Major League Baseball withdrawing the All-Star Game and MLB Draft from the Peach State.  Meanwhile, a recent poll says that less than one-third of Americans are aware of Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Joe Biden-Russia-Chi-Com connection.
  88. 2021 Tuesday N: Foreign News / Overseas News– Chi-Com President Xi Jinping gives a thinly veiled warning to Joe Biden not to pursue a path of unilateralism.  Meanwhile, General Frank McKenzie, head of U.S. Central Command, says that ‘pulling out of Afghanistan will make the War on Terror that much more difficult to prosecute.’   Elsewhere, Bill Gates and loads of world leaders will attend the ‘Biden climate summit.’  This should be fun to watch.  Next, Russia’s defense minister says, ‘U.S. actions in the Black Sea are becoming increasingly provocative.’  We would advise Joe Biden not to send U.S. Naval assets into the Black Sea as whatever senile old Joe sends would NOT be able to withstand a concerted Russian attack nor might Turkey allow the vessels to pass back through the Dardanelles to the Mediterranean.  It could be a real cluster-f**k.  Finally, Admiral Charles Richard, head of U.S. Strategic Command, issues a dire warning to the administration: the Chi-Coms and the Russians are modernizing their nuclear forces much faster than anything the United States is doing.  Sadly, WOKE issues for the Democrats are much more important than defending the nation.[xvii]
  89. 2021 Tuesday O: Stay tuned for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1652 with a $257 million jackpot on the line.  Here are the numbers: 06, 23, 43, 49, 52, and Mega 05.  Out of 166,921 winning tickets, the highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $1,806,354.  The winning ticket was sold at the Richmond New May Wah Supermarket in San Francisco, CA 94118.

  91. 2022 Wednesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 567,674 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- intellectually inadequate old Joe, by the end of the year, you will have tied the total number seen by the Trump administration in a year of the raging coronavirus pandemic. Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 202,919 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 455 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  92. 2022 Wednesday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,162,004 confirmed cases, 89,844 confirmed deaths, and 8,931,498 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,935,813 confirmed cases, 73,759 confirmed deaths, and 5,805,626 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 237,950 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,477,863 confirmed cases, 12,626 confirmed deaths, and 1,438,605 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., Puerto Rico: they have 499,539 confirmed cases, 4,188 confirmed deaths, and 473,564 confirmed recoveries.[xx]   
  93. 2022 Wednesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,044,994 confirmed cases, 10,658 confirmed deaths, and 3,941,841 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Montserrat, 218th place on the list: 177 cases of the virus, 2 confirmed death and 174 confirmed recoveries.[xxi]                         
  94. 2022 Wednesday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals– DOW Jones Industrial Average: 35,160.79, UP 249.59 points (+0.71%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,453.07 DOWN 166.59 points (-1.22%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,459.45, DOWN 2.76 points (-0.062%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $102.56 per barrel, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of GOLD is $1,955.90 per troy oz., +0.30 (+0.02%) while the price of SILVER is $25.21 per troy ounce, -0.06 (-0.24%).  The price of PLATINUM is $984.30 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.27%) while the price of COPPER is $4.66 per pound, +0.01 (+0.18%).[xxii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,443.32 per troy oz., -8.61 (-0.35%). The price of RHODIUM is $18,750.00 per troy oz., -150.00 (-0.79%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, +5,000.00 (+0.45%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,270.00 per USD/T, +9.00 (+0.28%). The price of ZINC is $4,418.00 per USD/T., -80.50 (-1.79%).   The price of COCOA is $2,536.00 per USD/T, +11.00 (+0.44%).  The price of COFFEE is $218.80 per USD/T, -2.50 (-1.13%).  The price of CORN is $812.75 per USD/T, -3.25 (-0.40%).  The price of LUMBER is $995.60 USD 1,000 board feet +57.00 (+6.07%).[xxiii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000024.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 20.00, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 79.78 of theirs.    In Moroccan Dirham, one greenback equals 9.80 and in Mozambican Metical, a buck equals 63.20 and in Myanmar Kyat, one dollar equals 1,850.00 of theirs.[xxiv]       
  95. 2022 Wednesday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.696 per gallon, $4.106 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.682 in Washington state.[xxv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Louisiana- $3.869.  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 22nd LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Saudi Arabia: $2.348 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvi] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,397,730,855,439 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvii]  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 Australia.  This nation holds $40,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  96. 2022 Wednesday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– It’s Day No. 56 in the Russo-Ukrainian War with no end in sight.  Germany says that by the end of the year, there will be no more oil coming into their country from Russia nor will there be any natural gas shortly after that.  They must know that President Donald J. Trump is returning soon, and that oil and natural gas will be flowing from the United States once again.
  97. 2022 Wednesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Our glorious Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 383 days.  Worse, she has not shown up to do the job in 297 days.  By our count, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris regime’s illegal aliens since January 01, 2022, is $700,740,760.  Next, since the duo took their oaths to defend the country and its Constitution, the cost of caring for the illegal alien invaders is $42,446,546,503.  Since the first day of the year, we contend 1,119,308 illegal alien invaders have arrived in the country while the conservative low estimate of illegals believed to be in the country is 46,550,965.  We believe the truer number is between 85-to-125 million illegals which is an intolerable amount.  Good news: the 7th bus of illegals arrived in the nation’s capital today.  Dump ‘em out on the White House lawn.  Put them to work. (Sources for the AICPENDBLOG.COM Illegal Alien Numbers: Center for Immigration Studies, Department of Homeland Security, Federation for American Immigration Reform, Institute for Defense Analyses, Yale, MIT, and, of course, the God-given common sense each of us has at his or her disposal).

  103. 2022 Wednesday M: Joe Biden Regime News I– A new poll of U.S. military veterans says the majority of them believe that Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark A. Milley is BAD for morale.  Speaking of someone else BAD for the nation’s morale, Joe Biden sees only 26-percent approval among Hispanic voters.  This is not good for the regime.   Next, Joe Biden- well, White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain or perhaps the Easter bunny- is demoting Acting ATF Director Marvin Richardson and bringing in U.S. Attorney Gary Restaino from Arizona to run the ship while his new nominee, former Ohio U.S. Attorney Steve Dettlebach tries to make it through confirmation in the U.S. Senate.
  104. 2022 Wednesday N: Joe Biden Regime News II– In yet another sell-out by the Biden regime, the Bidenistas are canceling nuclear sea-launched cruise missile known as the SLCM-N, and the B83 gravity nuclear bombs designed.  It would appear that the administration is doing what Joe Biden and the Democrats always accused President Donald J. Trump- the legitimate president- of doing, being a stooge for the Russians.  Joe Biden and the Democrats surrounding him are the TRUE stooges of not just the Russians but of the Chi-Coms.   Twenty-fifth Amendment anyone?
  105. 2022 Wednesday O: Joe Biden Regime News III– Supposedly, ‘Joe Biden’ held a confab with his top military generals today as events in Ukraine continue going from bad to worse.  Eastern European leaders however are journeying to Kyiv to walk the streets with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.   However, U.S. cybersecurity agencies and foreign allies are warning of massive Russian cyberattacks coming our way.  Oh, perish the thought.
  106. 2022 Wednesday P: Joe Biden Regime News IV– The Centers for Disease Control have asked the Biden regime to ask the Department of Justice to appeal the federal judge’s slap-down of mask mandates on air travel.  Dutifully, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that he is going to contest the ruling, spending millions of taxpayer dollars with which to overturn an extremely popular ruling with the American people.  They just keep striking out on one issue after another that could help Democrats win in the fall.
  107. 2022 Wednesday Q: Political News I– Rep. Byron Donalds, R-FL 19th district, says that the Centers for Disease Control NEVER provided reasons for keeping masks on air travel.   Next, a new poll says that President Donald J. Trump holds an insurmountable lead over his closest possible Republican contenders in 2024 and a massive-massive-massive lead over losers such as Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, and U.S. Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell who would never run anyway.  His time in GOP politics is coming to an end within his next election cycle.  He’s going the way of Di-Fi.
  108. 2022 Wednesday R: Political News II- The Senate Majority PAC- a Democrat fund-raising monster- is rolling out a massive ad blitz to support crumbling Senator Tammy Baldwin, DS-WI, who is among many at risk of losing their seats in November.  The Democrats are rolling out massive ad campaigns across the fruited plain with which- or so they hope- to maintain some hope of holding a majority.  They stand better chance of dumping illegals in all 50 states and giving them the right to vote with 30-day residency which is why the GOP must go out NOW and begin recruiting the illegals to register GOP.  NOW.
  109. 2022 Wednesday S: U.S. Military News– In Ohio, the first ever Courts Martial of a U.S. Air Force Major General William Cooley is underway as jury selection commences.  The general is accused of forcibly groping and kissing a subordinate.  At least it’s not for refusing to take the Chi-Vi vaccine.
  110. 2022 Wednesday T: Big Tech News– Big Tech strikes again: Google takes down Hong Kong leadership contender John Lee’s YouTube account.  WTF is wrong with these people?  Meanwhile, “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis- fresh from leading his state forward in the battle to force Disney to return to being at least, a neutral company, and at best, the American company that it once was is going after yet another WOKE target: Twitter.  The Sunshine State is threatening Twitter’s board of directors with a lawsuit over its rejection of Elon Musk’s buyout offer.  How can they do this, you ask?  Well, not considering an offer that would enrich ALL shareholders is a rejection of their fiduciary obligation to their shareholders and for this, the worthless company can be sued in court.   It is interesting to note that Governor DeSantis holds Twitter stock.  Not good for Twitter.
  111. 2022 Wednesday U: Big Tech News II– Another Big Tech icon sputtering into the wastebin of history like video shops is Netflix.  Having lost more than 200,000-plus users in recent months, shares of the online ‘video shop’ have fallen 23-percent.  Once Netflix went all WOKE, they, too, lost their allure, paying the Obamas hundreds of millions of dollars for some of the crappiest ‘entertainment’ on the Net.  How sad.  Meanwhile, it appears that CNN+ is doomed to circle the crapper, too.  Don’t these flipping liberals ever learn the hard lessons?  The American people are middle-right and don’t want all this WOKE CRAP.
  112. 2022 Wednesday V: Popular Culture News– Northern Elementary School in York, Pennsylvania, by an 8-1 vote shot down an attempt by some sick f**ks to establish an afterschool Satan club.  These evil clubs operate in four other places around the country, opening a door to things better left alone by enticing young people that it’s all just, good clean fun.  Bullshit.  You know, you can tell when a culture is in its decline.  Here is how: (1) constant political strife bordering or leading to civil war.  (2) open borders and an inability to do what’s necessary to stop barbarians from flowing across it- namely, use of force to stop the invasion.  (3) loss of common culture, language, belief in God (4) embracing all things perverse such as homosexuality, perversion, chicks with dicks, mentally ill believing they are something they are biologically incapable of being (5) the acceptance of dark ‘religious faiths’ such as satanism, abortion on demand, the eradication of the sick, the infirm, the mentally challenged (6) the corruption, i.e., the sexualization of children, minors, and sexual abuse (7) rampant crime, especially violent crime, loss of law and order, abrogation of government’s duty to protect its citizenry from thugs and criminals (8) constant wars for no apparent reason, the worrying of foreign events over domestic events, the worrying about noncitizens over citizens, i.e., the replacement theory, which is indeed FACT, NOT THEORY.  Each of these things is bad enough but combined together and it’s the End of Times.  We have a leader who should be in the old folks’ home, and we are well on our way to the end of the line for the United States.
  113. 2022 Wednesday W: California Lottery Results-Super Lotto and Powerball Draws– First, here are the results for Super Lotto Draw #3657 what with a $35 million jackpot on the line for some lucky winner: 02, 29, 36, 40, 47, and Mega 11.  Out of 111,308 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $19,284 apiece.   One ticket was sold at Bob’s Liquors in Redding, CA 96002 while the other was sold at Neighbors’ Market and Spirits in Galt, CA 95632.  Next, here are the results for the Powerball Draw #978 with a jackpot of $370 million up for grabs: 20, 30, 45, 55, 56, and Power 14.  Out of 94,565 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $13,235 apiece.

2022 Wednesday X: There’s always more…

[i] We look forward to presenting the music of Grand Funk Railroad sometime in the late 2020s.

[ii] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

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

[iv] We promoted the music of this venerable British rock band as part of a series of interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  This included the Small Faces, Faces, Rod Stewart, Ronnie Wood, Jeff Beck, Steve Marriott, Humble Pie, and other interconnected parts.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your collection.

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

[vi] At some point in the distant future, we hope to do the music of the famed rocker, Prince.  Be sure to remain aware for the day that we do.

[xvi] When Republicans adapt to the rules of the ‘immigration game’ and begin registering illegal aliens as members of the GOP and word begins getting out that Republicans are playing by Democrat rules, a massive explosion of immediate deportation will commence immediately.  Families will be separated, babies squalling, kids crying, mothers and fathers reaching out to one another, as the Dems stuff them onto every plane, train, truck, boat, hell, maybe even the Hyperloop if it’s in service by then and dumping them across the border in Mexico.   The Democrats will become the BAD GUYS and the Republicans will be able to commiserate with the illegals.  What a day that will be.

[xvii] We have predicted since ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden ‘won’ the 2020 Presidential Election that it would not surprise any of us if the Russians, the Chi-Coms, the North Koreans, the Iranians, the Venezuelans, the Cubans, and all the Third World countries in the orbit of Beijing were to act in concert against the U.S. and her interests.  What better opportunity would they have?  Unless President Donald Trump reenters the White House, we are sitting ducks.

  77. 2021 Monday F: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– Governor Ron DeSantis,[xviii] R-FL, signs the most pro-law enforcement bill on the books and also has consequences for violent rioters.  God bless you, sir!  Next, a poll in New York state says that ’54-percent of the voters view Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Go, aka the Gropin’ Gov, with disdain.  Another poll tried to say the voters would vote for this POS again, but no one believes that.  Speaking of the Empire State, a judge rules that the case, N.Y. v. Amazon will remain at the state level and not move up the chain to the federal level.   In other interesting “Killer” Cuomo news, N.Y. Attorney General Leticia James may be ‘reviewing’ the erstwhile governor’s autobiographical ‘novel’ of the wonderful job he did during the Chinese Virus pandemic, the one in which, he consigned tens of thousands of New York’s elderly and ill to their deaths.
  78. 2021 Monday G: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– The Texas House of Representatives okays a bill dropping permits to open-carry firearms in the state.  Speaking of the Lone Star State, the former Austin Police Department detective sought in the shooting deaths of three people yesterday has been scooped up in police custody.   Next, President Donald J. Trump advises decrepit Joe Biden NOT to withdraw U.S. troops from Afghanistan on the symbolic date of September 11, 2021, the 20-year-anniversary of the Islamist attack on New York City, on the Pentagon, and on a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.  Will old drooling Joe Biden listen to the sage advice?  Most likely not. 
  79. 2021 Monday H: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS III– Elsewhere, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, is putting forth a bill demanding the expulsion of lunatic Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters, DS-CA 43rd congressional district, over her visit to Minnesota over the weekend to encourage VIOLENCE no matter the outcome of the murder trial of Officer Derek Chauvin.  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, DS-CA 12th congressional district, is standing by her fellow octogenarian by saying, “She did nothing wrong.”  Both of these imbeciles must be voted out of office or impeached and removed.   In the case of “Prune Face” Waters, she should be doing time prison.  (Dr. Alan Dershowitz says that ‘Maxine Waters singlehandedly may have caused a mistrial due to her careless words.’[xix]   In other news, as the deathwatch of Putin critic Alexei Navalny begins, Joe Biden begins uttering some incoherent words in defense of the imprisoned freedom fighter.
  80. 2021 Monday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS IV– Congressman Steve Stivers, R-OH 15th congressional district is resigning his seat to head his state’s Chamber of Commerce.   Next, a Jewish coalition may expel the Zionists of America for them being critical of radical anti-Semite scum such as Congresswomen Rashida “Foul Mouth” Tlaib, DS-MI 13th congressional district, and Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, DS-MN 5th congressional district, by calling them out for their anti-Israel bigotry.  What did ZOA say wrong?   Next, Republican leaders are demanding a meeting with ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris so they can discuss the BORDER CRISIS, the one a word-slurring Joe Biden long claimed it wasn’t but now says it is and do something about it.  “Kooky Kamala” Harris has crisscrossed the country but has gone NOWHERE near the border since coming into office.  Speaking of the BORDER CRISIS, Joe Biden issued new rules to Customs and Border Patrol telling them ‘NO LONGER can they use the words ‘illegal alien’ and ‘assimilation’ when discussing the ILLEGAL ALIEN INVADERS POURING ACROSS THE SOUTHERN BORDER.’  WTF?   Speaking of ILLEGALS, Joe Biden’s handlers pledge that fuddled old Joe is going to raise the numbers of REFUGEES accepted into the country but that his original goal of hundreds of thousands may not occur.   (Interesting note- late this afternoon, the White House began walking back Joe Biden’s mumbled statements about the ‘crisis’ on the southern border.  Maybe they’ll CANCEL JOE?).
  81. 2021 Monday J: INTERESTING HYPOCRISY OF THE DAY–  Facebook is now censoring criticism of Black Lives Matter skank Patrice Cullors who has purchased several million dollars’ worth of real estate using money donated to BLM by dimwits such as FB cofounder Dustin Moskovitz who gave $5 million to the Marxist organization.  We cannot have people calling out LIBERAL HYPOCRISY now can we and so the great social media platform won’t let anyone call them out on it.
  82. 2021 Monday K: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT– After the defense wrapped up its closing arguments in the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, the jury now has the case and cities from Minneapolis to Chicago to Washington, D.C. to Los Angeles, California, to Portland, Oregon, are all preparing for out-of-control riots should he be acquitted on ALL charges.  Judge Peter Cahill says, ‘it will be an easy appeal what with Congresswoman Maxine “Prune Face” Waters urging VIOLENCE on American society NO MATTER WHAT VERDICT THE JURY DELIVERS.  (Note- we have said this and will continue saying it, ‘we think Officer Chauvin is going to get off.  Completely.  The blame will rest on liberal Democrats.  Period.  We think that had not the liberals involved themselves, had not the city of Minneapolis paid George Floyd’s family in the week prior to the start of the trial, they may have gotten a just verdict whereas now- as with George Zimmerman, aka the “White Hispanic,” they won’t get the verdict they seek.  IF they do, Chauvin will beat it on appeal).
  83. 2021 Monday L: NOTABLE DEATH– Former Vice President Walter F. Mondale who served under President Jimmy Carter from January 20, 1977, to January 20, 1981, died today in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the age of 93.  He also was the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 1984 with New York Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro, D-NY 9th congressional district as his running mate.  They were soundly defeated by President Ronald Reagan.  Bon voyage, Mr. Vice President.   In other notable news, we learn today that Capitol Hill Police Officer Brian Sicknick did not die from having his head ‘stoved in with a fire extinguisher’ as multiple media sources proclaimed for months on end during the FALSE FLAG OPERATION on January 06, 2021, but from a combination of two strokes caused by chemical irritants sprayed in his face by Antifa ‘protesters.’

Under President Trump’s watch, there were 404,645 fatalities from the Chi-Com Bat Virus.  From this point forward, ALL COVID-19 deaths are atop Joe Biden.  He has surpassed President Donald J. Trump’s 15-month number by 202,101 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 454 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.

The historic Ryman Theater in Nashville, Tennessee, has seen loads of unforgettable concerts in its day and Levon Helm’s appearance there in 2011 is among those.  “Ramble at the Ryman” came out on May 17, 2011, and features an unforgettable concert to be sure, one that features Band classics such as “Ophelia,” “Evangeline,” “Rag Mama Rag,” “The Shape I’m in,” “Chest Fever,” and “The Weight”- among others.  There are also tunes he recorded on his solo efforts, all well worth the price of admission.  Joining the drummer, vocalist, and mandolinist are Larry Campbell (guitars, fiddle, mandolins, and vocals), Paul Ossola (bass), Brian Mitchell (keyboards/vocals), Tony Leone (drums), a horn section, and backing vocalists.  The Band isn’t around anymore but this is as close as it gets which is why we encourage everyone to seek this album out and making it a part of their never-ending, perpetually-growing collection.

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

[ii] 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.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the famed California surf-rock band, the Turtles, beginning on Tuesday, 03-September-2013 through Friday, 13-September-2013.

[iv] Nationalist China is FREE China, the true owners of mainland China.  Driven off the mainland by the Reds in 1948-49 to the island of Formosa, renamed Taiwan, these people held the seat in the United Nations now held by the communists.  Many believe it is high time we return to a Two-China Policy that would recognize both the Free and the communist governments would benefit the entire world.  Many also believe it is time to boot Red China out of the UN and welcome Taiwan back in, especially since the communists gave the world the COVID-19 Wuhan Virus Crisis.

[v] As usual, our main sources for the heroic Battle of Dien Bien Phu in which several thousand French Union troops fought against tens of thousands of ravenous communist soldiers comes from “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, De Capo Press, 2006.

[vi] 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.

[vii] We promoted the music of both Koss and Back Street Crawler when we did the previous batch of famed British bands.

[viii] We are hopeful we will present the music of the Band and of its individual members sometime in 2024-2025.  Great music by a superb band

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

106. TODAY IN HISTORY—SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 2022

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

  17. 1917 Monday: Vladimir Ilyich Lenin arrived back from exile in Petrograd to join the Russian Revolution.   Kaiser Wilhelm II played his ‘secret weapon’ well: loaded aboard a closed train, Lenin and the Kaiser struck a deal- ‘we will send you back to Russia and when you take power, you take Russia out of the war.’  And so, it occurred.  However, when the communists took power, every nation in Europe shunned them because they did not want the evil disease of Marxism spreading to their countries but for now, all was well.

  23. 1941 Wednesday: The Yugoslav government (or what’s left of it) is attempting to negotiate an end to the Axis invasion of their country.  The Yugoslav military was not prepared for the Blitzkrieg that fell atop them like a load of bricks.  Anger Adolf Hitler and you will pay the price. 
  24. 1942 Thursday: During World War II, Britain’s King George VI awards the George Cross to the island of Malta for suffering German air attacks and invasion and for fighting back bravely.

  29. 1951 Monday: The British submarine Affray sinks in the English Channel resulting in the loss of 75 lives.

  63. 2016 Saturday: The Afghan government continues repelling Taliban attacks on the city of Kunduz.  Afghan and U.S. troops are keeping the jihadists at bay.  Half a world away, Syria and ISIS continue doing battle with one another and many parts of the city of Aleppo are smoldering ruins.  For every rocket attack, the Syrian government answers with airstrikes.  Civilians are fleeing in all directions.
  64. 2017 Sunday: Dictatorial thug leader of Turkey- Recep Tayyip Erdogan- ‘wins’ approval for an 18-article constitutional reform which thrusts the nation ever deeper into totalitarianism.  Elsewhere, due to the stupidity of Hamas and Fatah officials, the Gaza Strip’s ONLY power generating plants shuts down.  It has run out of fuel, its bills have gone unpaid, many among the leadership have skimmed off fortunes from money given to the Palestinian Authority and all they can do is to blame it on the ‘blockade.’  Look, dimwits, the answer is simple: stop building tunnels into Israel and do something for your people.  Period. 
  65. 2018 Monday: Following a recent chemical weapons attack by the Syrian government on the town of Douma, critics are bellowing that the Russians have ‘covered up evidence at the crime scene’ to which, the Russians say, ‘not likely’ and that as soon as it’s safe there (as soon as they finish cleaning it up), they will allow a team from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons to visit the area. 
  66. 2019 Tuesday: While many of us love the Seattle Seahawks, there is no reason as to WHY the team made quarterback Russell Wilson the highest-paid QB in the game, giving him both a $65 million signing bonus as well as a four-year extension worth $140 million.  The rest of the team is struggling so it appears Seattle is going down the path the Baltimore Ravens went with QB Joe Flacco.  Where is Joe NOW?   Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump vetoes a bill demanding an end to U.S. support for the Saudi-led coalition fighting Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.
  67. 2020 Thursday: Jobless claims due to COVID-19, the Chinese gift to the world that won’t stop giving, come in at 5.2 million for the week.  Total claims since social distancing and economic shutdown hit 22 million Americans out of work.  This is all because of China.  We must make them pay when we come to the end of the pandemic, which we hope is soon.  Word continues to appear that demonstrate that the Wuhan Virus Crisis did indeed come out of a Chinese laboratory in the city of Wuhan where it just so happens the Chinese conduct biowarfare studies.  Although they continue lying that the virus came from somewhere else, who can believe a single word a communist regime says?  Communists always lie, it’s in their DNA which is why no one should take them at their word.  COVID-19 Statistics: currently, there are 2,151,199 confirmed cases around the planet what with 1 confirmed cases around the planet what with 143,725 confirmed fatalities as well as 541,501 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 672,931 confirmed cases with 34,386 confirmed deaths and 54,594 confirmed recoveries.  The Chinese claim 84,593 confirmed cases, 3,342 confirmed deaths and 79,112 confirmed recoveries.  Boy do the communists lie.

  69. 2021 Friday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 139,274,615 confirmed cases, +933,695, 2,989,590  confirmed deaths, +14,760, and 79,359,280 confirmed recoveries, +573,576.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 31,764,754 confirmed cases, UP 82,708 from yesterday’s reporting, 571,464 confirmed deaths, UP 933, and 119,018,094 confirmed recoveries.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[ix]  In other COVID-19, a recent report says that Regeneron’s Chi-Vi cocktail can help prevent COVID-19 infections.
  70. 2021 Friday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 244,572 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.  Meanwhile, people are questioning WHY if everyone is getting their shots why the hell people must continue wearing masks like that dimwitted little troll, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci continues telling us to do.  WTF is up with that?  
  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: 3,712,566 confirmed cases, 60,837 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,155,744 confirmed cases, 34,330 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,337 confirmed cases, 473 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 383,967 confirmed cases, 5,412 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Arkansas, the home of future Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders: they have 332,949 confirmed cases, 5,686 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[x] 
  72. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 836,902 confirmed cases, 6,315 confirmed deaths, and 827,934 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Nepal, a country the Chinese are trying to undermine and make a de facto piece of the RED EMPIRE: 282,890 cases of the virus, 3,070 confirmed deaths and 274,812 confirmed recoveries.[xi]    
  73. 2021 Friday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,200.67, UP 164.68 points (+0.48%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,052.34, UP 13.58 points (+0.97%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,185.47, UP 15.05 points (+0.36%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $63.07 per barrel, -0.06 (-0.10%).  The price of GOLD is $1,777.30 per troy oz., -2.90 (-0.16%) while the price of SILVER is $26.04 per troy ounce, -0.04 (-0.25%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,206.00 per troy oz, -2.70 (-0.22%) while the price of COPPER is $4.16 per pound, -0.00 (-0.08%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,777.50 per troy oz, +36.77 (+1.34%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,600.00 per troy oz., +500.00 (+1.78%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000016.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.91.     In Gibraltar pounds, one greenback equals 0.72860 and in Guatemalan Quetzal, a buck equals 7.72.[xv]   
  74. 2021 Friday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.953 per gallon, $2.833 in Florida, $3.748 in Hawaii, and $3.352 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Illinois: $3.080.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,178,345,152,208 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  75. 2021 Friday F: GUNS, GUNS, GUNS– You know folks, last night, 19-year-old Brandon Scott Hole went into the FedEx facility at the Indianapolis, Indiana, airport, shot and killed 8 people, wounded several others, and then took his own life.  His mother reportedly warned the cops last year that her son might try to go out via suicide by cop.  This is a tragedy for all involved but here’s the deal: since Joe Biden has become president, there have been more mass shootings than there were under the last two years of President Donald J. Trump what with 30 dead so far this month alone.  This tells us that the rhetoric used by feeble old Joe Biden and his Democratic Party henchmen-and-women is driving the nuts to go berserk, shooting, and killing and maiming innocent people.  It is clear many fear they are going to lose their weapons and since they have unfinished business, are going to act on it NOW.  Stop with all the HATE SPEECH, Joe, enough is enough.  (Note- the cops in Indianapolis say they are searching for a motive.  What the hell!  Mr. Hole wanted to die, and he had some people with whom he wanted to settle scores.  Period).
  76. 2021 Friday G: BULLS**T POLL OF THE DAY– a recent PEW Poll says that Joe Biden’s approval rating stands at 59-percent.  Please.  This nothing but crap.  Speaking of Joe Biden, Senator Ron Johnson, R-WI, says, that ‘Joe Biden is not up to the task at hand, especially the Chi-Coms who are our biggest threat and someone we should have nuked back in 1951.  In other Joe Biden news, he is holding his first meeting with another foreign leader, Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga of Japan, at the White House today.  We wonder who is speaking for him.   Anyhow, the two leaders agree that the Taiwan Strait must remain stable.
  77. 2021 Friday H: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– common sense people are beginning to ask WTF we shut our country down over the Chi-Com virus when hundreds of thousands of people continue swamping across our border and disappearing into the interior of the country?  If the federal government could give a flying f**k about how many of the invaders have COVID-19, then why should anyone else?  Speaking of the border crisis, President George W. Bush- an ‘esteemed former president’ if one ever existed (yeah, right) says he supports immigration reform but not amnesty.  George, we feel the same way about you as we do Jimmy Carter.  When either one of you dimwits says anything, we quickly move onto something else.   
  78. 2021 Friday I: JOE BIDEN REFUGEE NEWS–  House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, the dumb b***h who slurs her words bad enough already but with a mask strapped over her pie hole makes it even more difficult to understand what the hell she is saying chided Joe Biden on not taking in enough refugees.  Oh, please, Nance, please Joe, bring in some more winners like Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar, like the Syrian shooter in Boulder, Colorado, like the Boston bombers, please, bring in some more of those America-hating POS, we need more of them ASAP.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden moves to placate our European allies and says he will remove Trump-era caps on the number of refugees our country accepts in.  That truly sucks.
  79. 2021 Friday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Someone said Chelsea “The Genius” Clinton may run for Congress.  Good God Almighty, please say it ain’t so.  She is as stupid as is the Fly, aka Baby Evita, aka Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, she with her Boston College economics degree.   Then again, she would fit right in with all the dimwitted Democrats serving in Congress already like Hank “Flat Top” Johnson, DS-GA 4th congressional district, and Congresswoman Sheila “Putty Puss” Jackson Lee, DS-TX 18th congressional district, and Congressman ‘Mr.’ James “Influence” Clyburn, DS-SC 6th congressional district, she would fit right in.   
  80. 2021 Friday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– Glenn Beck said today on his radio show that in the cities where Black Lives Matter protesters ran amok raping, pillaging, looting, robbing, and beating, there were a combined total of more than 6,000 additional homicides.  Coincidence?  We think not.  They are not a peace-loving group; they are fascist black-and-brown-shirted thugs in need of eradication.  Elsewhere, in other political news, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, has challenged the highly cerebral Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th congressional district to a debate on the Green New Deal.  Now, we would pay handsomely to get ringside seats to see this duel to the death, MTG doing battle with the Fly on pay-per-view-TV.  Sign us up now.
  81. 2021 Friday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– In other political news, we learn that the director for the new Black Panther sequel is NOT going to follow his WOKE liberal comrades and boycott Georgia.  Good.  ‘WOKE’ will go away when people pay it NO attention.  None of us are going to NFL, NBA, or MLB games ever again nor are we going to buy Coca-Cola® products, Nike® sportswear, or any of the other crap that is boycotting everything.  We are not going to see movies, we do not have to see how stupid we are, how great the Chi-Coms and perverts are, enough is enough.   Elsewhere, the great state of Florida passes an anti-riot bill.  About time someone does.  Look, government’s number one job is this: protecting the lives of its citizens and their property.  Plain, simple, and easy for the stupid to understand.  Once you raise an arm to throw a Molotov cocktail, you get shot.  Once you throw bricks and don’t stop when you are told to stop, you get shot.  Once you start looting, you are eligible to get shot.  This is the way it always was and should be again.
  82. 2021 Friday M: 2020 ELECTION NEWS– reports continue to arise that the number one person behind the changed election laws in numerous states and in the subsequent theft of the election from President Donald J. Trump is Bill and Hillary Clinton’s number one hired thug, attorney Mark Elias.  A partner at Perkins Cole, he is the head of their ‘political law’ department and this man- if we are to believe what we are now learning- is the number one operative behind the stolen election and the subsequent cover-ups of the theft.  In all states where election information has already been trashed, those states should have to hold another election at their expense.
  83. 2021 Friday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– We learn that Hunter Biden’s NEW book in which he talks about smoking crack, banging teenaged whores, and doing all sorts of other evil and disgusting stuff has sold a whopping 10,638 books in its first week.  According to Bill O’Reilly, this is ‘crap’ seeing as how Bill’s new book, “Killing the Mob” has already sold 60,000 copies and is not even on the shelves of bookstores yet.  In other news, people are lamenting the 13-year-old boy who was shot dead in Chicago the other night by a cop.  Adam Toledo, aka Lil Homicide and Baby Diablo was gangbanging with his buds at 2:30 in the morning, running around with a loaded gun, shot at cops, then ran away and dumped the gun just as the cops rolled up and got shot.  YOU don’t want to get shot, don’t be banging, don’t be shooting at cops, and don’t be running around in the middle of the night.  Period.   We shed no tears.  Next, Raul Castro, dictator of Cuba, says yes indeed, he is going to resign.  Wow.
  84. 2021 Friday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II– U.S. Interior Secretary Debra Haaland, the first Norwegian-Native American to hold the job, is dumping Trump era rules concerning the fossil fuel industry’s rights on public lands.  Apparently, oil and gas companies will no longer be able to drill for vital national resources leaving us dependent upon OPEC, Russia, and other Third World producers of energy.  This makes no sense.  Next, conservative House Republicans are forming the ‘America First Caucus,’  a group to continue the legacy of President Donald J. Trump.   Next, Minneapolis public schools are hurriedly switching over to online learning as the city (and the country) braces for the verdict in the murder trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.   Finally, the mother of slain EMT Breonna Taylor- Tamika Palmer- slams both State Representative Attica Scott, D-Louisville, and BLM, labeling both of them as ‘frauds’ in the aftermath of the shooting death of her daughter.  According to Ms. Palmer, she watched the TWO raise money off the death of Breonna without doing a damned thing to help her family.  Wow.  We understand.
  85. 2021 Friday P: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega Millions Draw #1651: 17, 27, 28, 50, 55, and Mega 25.  Out of 105,680 winning tickets, the highest winners were 64 people who had four numbers for a prize of $496 apiece.
  86. 2022 Saturday: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.
