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.

  35. 1944 Tuesday: On the Eastern Front, German and Romanian troops that have been bottled up in Odessa in the Ukraine are preparing their own evacuation by sea across the Black Sea towards Romania and freedom.  The Red Army continues shelling the city making the escape problematic but still, drowning is preferable to becoming a POW in the Soviet Union.    Meanwhile, the Soviets capture the Nikolayev which the year before had been the scene of a major battle between escaping Italian 8th Army, Romanian, and German survivors of the Battle of Stalingrad.   
  36. 1945 Wednesday: Germany launched the last of the V-2 rockets against England.   On the Western Front, U.S. British, French,  and Polish forces continue the inexorable drive towards Berlin and ultimate victory while the Soviets continue plowing through Eastern Europe, crushing resistance wherever they come across it.   In the China-Burma-India Theater, Imperial Japanese forces are losing the fight for Burma and are having to hightail it towards the east.

  65. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, officials find that Andreas Lubitz, co-pilot of downed Germanwings Flight 4U 9525, had mental and physical health problems that he hid from the airline; a doctor’s note was found excusing him from work on the day that he crashed the plane.  Meanwhile, the Saudi Coalition announces that it now has full control of Yemeni airspace while ground fighting continues around the port of Aden.  The Saudis are trying to drive the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels out of their positions and to reassert Yemeni Sunni control of government.
  66. 2016 Monday: Belgian prosecutors release one Muslim guy they scooped up in their search for the jihadists that capsized their country and caused widespread fear throughout Western Europe because the evidence upon which, they arrested him did not support the crimes with which they were trying to charge him.  We hope they kept eyes on him anyway…elsewhere, the Japanese military continues building up its forces and intelligence-gathering apparatuses near the disputed Senkaku Islands, the ones the Chinese covet. 
  67. 2017 Tuesday: President Donald J. Trump proposed immediate budget cuts of $18 billion from programs such as medical research, infrastructure, and community grants so the American taxpayers—and NOT Mexico—could cover the down payment for the border wall.  Elsewhere, Wells Fargo Bank said it would pay $110 million to settle a class-action lawsuit over as many as 2 million accounts its employees opened for customers without getting their permission.
  68. 2018 Wednesday: Arriving for his first trip outside North Korea, Kim Jong Un arrives in Beijing via his armored train to meet with Chinese leader Xi Jinping.  Meanwhile, following an out-of-control prison riot that led to a major fire in the Carabobo state police headquarters in Valencia, Venezuela, the authorities claim 68 deaths and countless others injured and maimed.
  69. 2019 Thursday: After 100-plus migrants seized control of a merchantmen plying the waters off the coast of Libya- and which then took control of the vessel and ordered its captain and crew to take them to Malta- the Maltese navy arrived on scene, stormed the vessel, freed its crew, and took the pirates into custody.  The ship then went onto Malta where it docked, and the scumbag refugees were trotted off to holding cells.  We guess a prison on Malta beats living in Libya without Moammar Gaddafi in charge.  
  70. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus continues plaguing the world what with confirmed global cases hitting 664,924 with a total of 30,848 deaths and 140,222 recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the United States there are a total of 124,665 confirmed cases with 2,026 deaths and approximately 1,072 recoveries (although the recovery number seems a bit low).  Meanwhile, in Communist China, the authorities have re-opened parts of the epicenter of the virus- Wuhan- after two months of intense isolation including the nailing in of the afflicted into their apartments.
  71. 2021 Sunday: FOREIGN NEWS I- Some nut case runs amok in a library in Vancouver, Canada today stabbing seven people.  One person is dead, and six others wounded.  Stick around for updates.  Meanwhile, tensions continue to rise in Myanmar as the military junta goes berserk during their annual military parade in their capital city of Naypyidaw.  They murdered at least 100 people across the country yesterday and continue their rampage today.  Since the military coup took charge, more than 420 brave souls have been slain by the left-wing thugs.
  72. 2021 Sunday A: FOREIGN NEWS II- Meanwhile, a pair of jihadists attempt to storm a Roman Catholic Church but end up detonating their suicide bombs outside the main entrance injuring at least 14 people.  The Indonesian jihad attack occurred on the island of Sulawesi.   One must love the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.  Elsewhere, for the second year in a row- thanks to the Xi Jinping Bat Flu Pandemic- Pope Francis delivered Palm Sunday services to a near-empty St. Peter’s Basilica.  Finally, two additional tugboats are heading to the Suez Canal to try to budge the quarter-mile-long container ship blocking canal traffic.  Economic losses are estimated to be around $9 billion per day in shipped goods reaching their destinations.
  73. 2021 Sunday B: BIDEN BORDER CATASTROPHE- The attorney general of the great state of Montana- Austin Knudsen- announces that IF the Biden administration attempts to deliver illegal immigrants from the U.S.-Mexico border to northern states, they are going to slam the administration with a hefty lawsuit.  NO one wants these illegals, Joe, so stop dumping them across the country.  As the BIDEN BORDER HOLOCAUST continues to develop, a weakening Biden administration says, ‘yes, indeed, it will allow reporters to visit the border.’  Speaking of the border, President Donald J. Trump says he will be visiting the border within the next several weeks.   Next, an ABC-IPSOS poll released today says that ’56-percent of the American people do NOT approve of Joe Biden’s bungled border crisis, the disaster that threatens to engulf our entire nation.  We suspect the numbers are far higher than that.  Finally, Senator Mike Braun reported that a Biden administration hack demanded GOP senators delete all photos of their visit to the crumbling border.
  74. 2021 Sunday C: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS- The Biden administration installs a rabid anti-Trumper by the name of Richard Torres Estrada into the role of Chief of Diversity and Inclusion (what a load of bullshit.  There, we said it, what are you going to do about it?) into the Special Operations Command.  I guess we need more snowflakes with which to terrify the NEW Axis powers of communist China, Russia, Iran, and their junior partners North Korea, Venezuela, and Cuba.  Limp-wristed defenses are best.  Speaking of North Korea, it appears that Joe Biden is indeed losing sleep at night over North Korea because he won’t utter a peep against their bellicosity.
  75. 2021 Sunday D: POLITICAL NEWS I- In Iowa, the news media is turning on Democrat Rita Hart, the woman trying to get House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi to steal the seat from lawfully-seated Congresswoman Marionnette Miller-Meeks.  The Cornhuskers are growing angrier by the day and the Democrat media is slamming Ms. Hart and Pelosi, too.  God bless them.   Meanwhile, Bill Maher on his show, Real Time with Bill Maher, noted left-of-center commentator is blasting the WOKE attitudes in U.S. schools, hammering them for being unable to hear ALL views.  Good for you, Bill.
  76. 2021 Sunday E: POLITICAL NEWS II- Speaking of “Mumbles” Pelosi, Congressman Mike Rogers, R-AL 3rd congressional district, blasts “Mumbles” for staging political theater on the grounds of the Capitol what with razor wire fencing that never seems to come down surrounding Fort Pelosi as well as for installing metal detectors through which, ALL members must pass or face an immediate docking of $5,000 from their pay.  People of California vote this angry old senile hag out of office.
  77. 2021 Sunday F: POLITICAL NEWS III- Corey Lewandowski says that when President Donald J. Trump’s new social media platform goes live, people will be able to communicate directly with the 45th president.   Elsewhere, GOP Asian official Lee Wong shows his battle scars to his fellow Cincinnati city council members.  “Don’t question my patriotism” as he displayed his scarred body from 20-years’ military service in the U.S. military.  Next, Donald Trump Jr. says that ‘before the Democrats go after law abiding citizens’ guns, they had better do something about Hunter Biden as man, that guy lied on a federal background check form as well as tossed a firearm into a trash can across from a school that then disappeared.  Amen.
  78. 2021 Sunday G: POLITICAL NEWS IV- Meanwhile, this September, Congress is going to award murdered retired police Captain David Dorn with the Congressional Medal of Honor.  Looks like “Mumbles” needs to show she actually gives a flying fluck about murdered cops.    Elsewhere, the people of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, are seeking to remove their version of Los Angeles County’s George Gascon, the inept left-wing POS DA Larry Krasner.  Since last summer’s protests, violent crime rates have soared into the stratosphere.  Remove this George Soros-funded piece of duck dreck from office.  NOW.   Next, Senator Raphael Warnock, DS-GA and a man who serves Karl Marx and the Lord simultaneously, told Dana “Horse Face” Bash today that the Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate can concentrate on BOTH voting rights and infrastructure at the same time.  Wow.  Good for you.
  79. 2021 Sunday H: CHINESE VIRUS NEWS- Vladimir Putin says he expects that herd immunity in the former Soviet Union will arrive sometime towards the end of summer at which point, all lockdowns and restrictions will be removed.   Next, the British expect the second round of Wuhan Virus vaccines will soon be administered to the British people and even better, thanks to increasing supplies, people will not have to receive MIXED vaccinations which is incredibly good.  Elsewhere, One America News asked a question today: “Is the China Virus responsible for hate crimes?”  No, the communist Chinese are responsible for the virus and OTHER minorities than Asians hired by the Democrats to go out and commit faux hate crimes against Asians are responsible.  Why do you think we NEVER see the perpetrators in the FEW EXAMPLES trotted out by leftist news media to show us of this wave of hate crimes against Asian Americans?  It’s not happening yet Asian Americans at the drop of a hat (Democrats set this stuff in motion) are out in the streets demanding STOP THE HATE.  It’s all Astroturf, folks.  (What we have seen is young black men attacking Asians.  Someone talk about that, please).
  80. 2021 Sunday I: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 127,016,385 confirmed cases, 2,780,776  confirmed deaths, and 71,960,689 confirmed recoveries. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 30,254,490 confirmed cases, 549,289 confirmed deaths, (down from last count albeit from a different source) and 118,387,582 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. 
  81. 2021 Sunday J: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,658,714 confirmed cases, 58,815 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 29,712 confirmed cases, 461 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 361,115 confirmed cases, 5,218 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., the fourth highest state after California- Illinois: currently, they have 1,220,432 confirmed cases, 23,329 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 831,924 confirmed cases, 6,185 confirmed deaths, and 816,218 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).   Let’s look at one other country- Jordan, home of the Hashemite kings: 589,316 cases of the virus, 8,763 confirmed deaths and 527,609 confirmed recoveries.[v]
  82. 2021 Sunday K: 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 $3.895 per gallon, $3.649 in Hawaii, and $3.326 in Washington state.[vi]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,105,144,952,031 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[vii]  Cloward and Piven at high speed.
  83. 2021 Sunday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- California theme parks are preparing to reopen this week.  Next, the White House and private industries are conspiring as HOW to create ‘vaccine passports’ so that those who resist vaccination with this as yet-unknown crap- will be prevented from participating in normal society.  The Health and Human Services Department is the driving force behind this initiative by which, the federal government and the globalist movement can force everyone to accept their agenda.  People of faith are suspicious of this push to get everyone to take this vaccine for a disease that millions suspect is not quite as bad as advertised.  Very strange, folks, very strange.  Finally, Oscar De La Hoya is going to make yet another comeback, this time at age 48.
  84. 2022 Monday: Stick around, let’s see what happens today…

Meanwhile, the Senate Judiciary Committee backs the Sentencing Reform and Corrections Act which will correct injustices judges inflicted on tens of thousands of offenders who were first-time offenders, minorities, and/or poor.  President Donald J. Trump brought this amazing miracle into being along with Kim Kardashian and others concerned about the travesties of justice.
  56. 2019 Friday: Driving his enemies insane, President Donald J. Trump declares a national emergency as wave after wave of illegal alien caravans attempt to storm the southern U.S. border so he can divert funds and begin construction of the southern border wall.  Meanwhile, after Amazon announced, it was going to build its new HQ in New York City, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took them to task, not understanding that in order to get something, you give something.  Anyhow, Amazon announces it’s a done deal- they’re going elsewhere- to Virginia.  Friendlier business climate there.
  57. 2020 Saturday: The COVID-19 growing global pandemic reaches into Europe now.  An 80-year-old Chinese ‘tourist’ dies in France from the Wuhan Flu.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Australian officials cancel a visit to Great Britain due to the Brits allowing Huawei to build their 5-G network.  Australia like the United States wants nothing to do with Huawei because of Chinese Communist Party’s use of its electronics to eavesdrop on everyone around the world.  Think TikTok.  Meanwhile, in Yemen, Houthis raise a big fuss over Saudi airstrikes that claim the lives of at least 30 ‘civilians.’ 
  58. 2021 Monday:  We heard early today that there is ‘bipartisan support’ for an independent commission to delve into the causes of the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots when Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi knows the precise cause: being in league with Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs who infiltrated the Trump supporters to pull off one of the greatest FALSE FLAG OPERATIONS in the history of American politics.  Add to that the waving off of proffered 10,000 National Guard troops AHEAD of January 6 and you know all you need to know.  It was a set-up hence why they lie about the death of Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick, why we don’t know the results of his autopsy and why they cremated him as quickly as they did.  Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has much for which to answer, folks, which is why she is appointing an ‘independent commission’ (yeah, right) to look into the RIOTS.  Speaking of Officer Brian Sicknick, the New York Times quietly updates the truth on his death saying it most likely was in response to some kind of irritant sprayed in his face such as bear repellant.
  59. 2021 Monday A: Joe Biden announces he will speak at a virtual G 7 summit on the ‘Panda Pandemic,’ aka the Chinese Virus, the Wuhan Virus, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Yellow Fever 2020-2021.  Keep a close eye on the screen to see how they manipulate the ‘speech’ by Biden so as to see the earpiece telling him what to say and do.  Word of warning- Joe, don’t stick your wife’s finger in your mouth.   Meanwhile, Joe Biden continues dismantling the extremely necessary Trump Era policy of illegal alien asylum speakers remaining in Mexico.  Now, they can enter the U.S. and begin popping out one anchor baby after another.  Diabolical, Joe.  In other ‘Joe Biden news,’ Joe is driving ahead (well, those behind him) to get our guns from us and to eliminate our ability to get them.  Not going to happen, Joe.
  60. 2021 Monday B: Dick Morris speaks out on the Democrats’ ‘bloodlust’ in pursuing Donald J. Trump.  It’s because they have nothing other than “Trump Glue” to hold the Democrats together.  What a shame.  Meanwhile, reputed Chi-Com intelligence agent, Congressman Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell makes some stupid comment about God’s gender.  Thought you folks were supposed to avoid all gender-related terms on the floor of the House?  Hypocrite.  Speaking of dimwitted Democrats, Orthodox rabbis are calling on House Democratic Party leadership to remove Congresswoman Ilhan “Allah Akbar” Omar from her position as vice chairperson on the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee.   We have an alternative nickname for Ms. Omar- Ilhan “From the Rivers to the Sea, Palestine will be Free” Omar.   In other left-wing news, Puerto Rico is demanding Congress to consider statehood for the leftist island territory.  They say ‘Congress has a moral responsibility’ to do so.
  61. 2021 Monday C: In the New York City mayoral race, Andrew Yang has hit the necessary threshold in fund-raising to qualify for matching funds.  Meanwhile, Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom continues to sink as the effort to remove the POS via recall has surpassed the necessary 1.5 million voter signatures with which to throw him out of office.   In the Empire State, Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo continues falling in his approval ratings with his critics on all sides of the aisle going after him, accusing him and his bozo brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo, of showboating on TV while thousands of elderly seniors in rest homes were dying of the Chi-Vi due to his horrendous mishandling of the Beijing Bug.  People are so angry with this guy; the state Assembly is considering stripping him of his emergency powers. 
  62. 2021 Monday D: In other U.S. news, the Minneapolis City Council now wants to RE-FUND the police department because everything is going to hell in a handbasket as are many other left-wing cities and towns.  Meanwhile, the Dems are launching an all-out campaign to get Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton out of office.  It shows how effective he is.   Elsewhere, Republican Congressmen Devin Nunes, California, and Jim Jordan, Ohio, demand that House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi ‘fess up’ on what she knew and when she knew it about security conditions at the Capitol on January 6.  People want answers as to WHY we still have a militarized capitol with fences and troops when they should be deployed along  the southern border.
  63. 2021 Monday E: Florida Republican Congressman Matt Gaetz says that ‘Governor Ron DeSantis would make one hell of a presidential candidate one day.’  Next, following former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley’s stupid comments regarding Trump’s support among the GOP voters, Senator Lindsey Graham says that ‘Donald Trump remains the most potent force among the Grand Old Party.’  Speaking of Ambassador Haley, even anti-Trumpers are outraged at her stupid remarks.  Her stock as a presidential candidate has fallen to outhouse levels like Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Mitt Romney, Bill Cassidy, Ben Sasse, and other dimwits.   Meanwhile, the GOP plans on trying Joe Biden to the Chi-Coms in every chance they get so as to increase the numbers of wins in 2022 and again in 2024.   Moving on, Pennsylvania GOP Congressman Guy Reschenthaler says, ‘If you don’t think Cancel Culture isn’t coming for you next, wake up!’   In other news, the fact that vandals assaulted the home of Trump attorney Michael Van Der Veen proves just how effective he was in defending his client.  Some maggot scrawled, “TRAITOR,” on his home.
  64. 2021 Monday E: Big Tech now is attacking Pro-Life news services.  Big Tech strikes again. Speaking of Tech, we now know that the Chi-Coms- good friends of ‘Pro-China Joe’ Biden used secret microchips installed in U.S. computers to spy on US.  How nice.  We should have nuked them when we had the opportunity.  Next, the president of Microsoft says the SolarWinds hack was biggest and most sophisticated in history.  Elsewhere, Parler has managed to return to the Internet via using ‘independent technology.’ 
  65. 2021 Monday F: Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan says the “U.S. supports militants in Iraq who have executed members of Turkey’s armed forces.  What’s up with that, Joe?  Next, Iran tests a short-range ‘smart missile’ with a radius of about 186 miles.  Elsewhere, Congressman  Michael Waltz, R-FL, urges a boycott of the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.  We concur- NO freedom-loving country should participate in the Chi-Com-held Olympics- it’s akin to participating in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin.  F— them. 
  66. 2021 Monday G: Severe winter weather is rampaging through Texas where power outages are ongoing as they are in at least 13 other states.  We hope they’re not using any Chi-Com equipment or software. Refineries in Texas are being forced to shut down due to the weather.  In other news, Ken Cuccinelli, former immigration bigwig in the Trump administration says that Joe Biden’s immigration policies are going to overwhelm the country as illegals are flooding in across the southern border.  We hope troops begin laying minefields along the border to stop this tidal wave.  Elsewhere, John Bachman on Newsmax TV says of the Joe Biden, ‘it’s hard to claim to be a friend of the working class when your policies are rapidly leading to their demise.’  Finally, it’s interesting to note that former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s BIG MISTAKE in using the nuclear option to confirm judicial appointees back in 2013 could see impeachment being used by the GOP to destroy numerous left-wing Democrats in coming years.  We can only hope.  
  67. 2021 Monday H: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,067,558 confirmed cases, +313,837, 2,405,546, confirmed deaths, +6,773, and 61,277,452 confirmed recoveries, +245,977.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 27,939,592 confirmed cases, up 32,738 from yesterday’s reporting, 490,672 confirmed deaths, UP 833, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries- same as reported for nearly three-plus weeks now.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this pathetic, senile moron.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 160,802 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the communist virus, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  68. 2021 Monday I: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,484,984 confirmed cases, 47,055 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 331,164 confirmed cases, 4,739 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of U.S. territory- Wisconsin: currently, they have 607,213 confirmed cases, 6,748 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 730,293 confirmed cases, 5,414 confirmed deaths, and 670,010 confirmed recoveries.
  69. 2021 Monday J: In other news related to the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the World Health Organization clears the Astrazeneca COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use around the world.   Meanwhile, Brexit leader Nigel Farage says the world is dealing with a virus, NOT the Chi-Vi but the WOKE VIRUS, one that is sweeping the world and one that we absolutely must crush before it crushes us.  Elsewhere, noted investigative journalist Peter Schweizer says that BOTH Joe Biden and Kamala Harris must get their families under control if they wish to keep things on the up-and-up (which they don’t- at least in our views).  
  70. 2021 Monday K: In the African nation of Guinea, health authorities declare an Ebola epidemic.  Meanwhile 58 mostly Western nations unite to oppose detainment of their nationals or detainment of foreign nationals to gain leverage over one nation or the other.  The Chi-Coms do this, the Russians do this, the Iranians really do this, it’s horrible and it must end.  Elsewhere, a rocket attack in the lovely nation of Iraq kills a contractor and wounds a U.S. servicemember.  Finally, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledges differences between Joe Biden and himself but remains hopeful the senile old fool in the White House will give him a ring.  Don’t count on it, prime minister, you, and your country must unite with ALL Arab countries to oppose Iran.
  71. 2021 Monday L: County GOP officials in the Pennsylvania counties of Clarion, Centre, Lawrence, Washington, and York censure Senator Pat Toomey who voted to convict President Donald J. Trump this past Saturday in the bogus second impeachment trial.  Ask him to retire.  NOW.   Next, UPDATE on New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo- he is NOW blaming the vast numbers of Chinese Virus deaths on health care and rest home workers but oh, no, NOT me or my policies.  Andrew, a famous Democrat once said, “The buck stops here,” meaning with YOU- murdering f**k.  Noted journalist Bill O’Reilly says that ‘Cuomo is doing rope-a-dope’ to try to cover his ass and to evade punishment that is heading his way.  Elsewhere, the NATO chief says that nations that send troops to various missions should not have to foot all the costs of doing so but that the organization should help.  Next, the soon-to-be-deployed NASA new Mars rover is going to search out signs of ancient life.[v]   Finally, in Palm Beach, as President Donald J. Trump returns from a golf outing, tens of thousands of his supporters lined the streets holding signs and celebrating how much they love the 45th president.  Speaker Pelosi: Trump ain’t going nowhere.   
  72. 2022 Tuesday: What the heck could be happening today?

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

We feel compelled to share with our new readers that we are an OPINION SITE and not a NEWS SITE although we do report the news.  If anything, we are big history buffs which is why we have been going strong since early 2009…

ENDNOTES:

[i] We presented the music of the Kinks, as well as of Ray and Dave Davies, beginning on Monday, 22-December-2014 through Sunday, 15-March-2015.  We hope you will check out the music of this original British invasion band as they are as relevant today as they were more than 50 years ago.  Sure, beats the hell out of Maroon Five.

[ii] We are not sure when we will present the music of Supertramp, but we hope to do it within the next year or so.  You will not want to miss this group, that we can tell you.

[iii] We should have promoted the music of Journey around the time we did the music of Santana. We hope to do so sometime within the next 10-12 years.  We hope you will remain alert for the day when we do.

[iv] Not sure when exactly we will present the music of Elvin Bishop along with Electric Flag and Buddy Miles.

[v] We’re hoping the Chi-Com lander is going to crash on the Martian surface, breaking apart into millions of pieces.  Otherwise, they will be lying like they have about ‘growing seeds on the dark side of the moon.’  Lying communist bastards.  Hell, for all we know, when their craft reaches the Red Planet’s surface, it will be carrying COVID-19 seeing as how they are so damned sloppy handling pathogens.

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

260. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2021

2020 Thursday B: Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution. Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today. Remember that.

  59. 2019 Tuesday: In Malaysia, another BIG Islamist hotspot, the government raises the age of females to 19 to keep it in line with males marrying age and to prevent child brides from being sold to older scumbags.  Meanwhile, angry teenager ‘climate activist’ Greta Thunberg tells the U.S. Congress regarding its efforts to combat ‘global warming,’ “I know you’re trying but just not hard enough.  Sorry.”  Go home, Greta, go home and get a flipping life already![ii]
  60. 2020 Thursday: A recent poll suggests that 51-percent of ALL Americans support Black Lives Matter- the well-known criminal thug Marxist whereas 44-percent don’t.  Most people never answer pollster’s questions anymore and on this particular topic, who would?  Meanwhile, last week’s first-time jobless claims were at 860,000, 33 thousand less than the previous week.  More people are returning to work and if the fascist governors of California and New York would reopen, unemployment would be plummeting.  Elsewhere, in November, the number of voters voting by mail is expected to be at 80-percent and the Brennan Center for Justice suggests that incidents of voter fraud are between 0.00004-0.00009-percent.  Uh, okay.  New Jersey election officials announce they found 16,000 mail-in ballots from an election in July that mysteriously turned up but did not- we repeat, did not (so they say) alter the election.  Folks, this is all BULLS**T.  The same things have occurred in Pennsylvania and in North Carolina which should inform EVERYONE that this system of voting is fraught with all manner of danger.
  61. 2020 Thursday A: The GOP is fearful of losing the U.S. Senate in November what with Maine’s Susan Collins at 42-percent while her Democratic challenger, Sarah Gideon is at 54-percent.  It is important to note that Maine has one of the most corrupt and crooked methods of electing people, that those who win on Election Day typically lose a couple of weeks later.  Meanwhile, in South Carolina’s senatorial election, GOP Senator Lindsey Graham and his Democratic Party challenger Jaime Gideon are in a dead heat at 48-percent apiece.  We shall see.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice announces that it is looking into possible civil and/or criminal charges against officials in cities that abrogated their duties of protecting life, liberty, and property, what all elected leaders are charged to do, defend the U.S., and state constitutions and to enforce all laws, especially those protecting the people.   
  62. 2020 Thursday B: New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy, Democrat, raised the top tax rate to 10.75-percent, the highest rate in the nation which is going to drive even more people out of the state and will then fall atop the lower classes to pay.  Insane.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump signed a proclamation at the National Archives today that creates the 1776 Commission, designed to promote positives about the United States, its founding, its history, and its heroes, including slaveowner Cesar Rodney who was the deciding vote on passing the U.S. Constitution.  Friends, we cannot judge people of the past by the standards of today.  Remember that.  Meanwhile, President Trump is encouraging the PAC 10 to begin playing football like the BIG 10.  Speaking of football, tonight’s Thursday Night Football game is between the Cincinnati Bengals v. the Cleveland Browns.  The Browns won 35-30.
  63. 2020 Thursday C: Folks, here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Yellow Fever, Chi-Com Virus- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 29,994,772 confirmed cases, +338,268, 942,989, confirmed deaths, +6,084, and 20,375,450 confirmed recoveries, +229,062.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 6,743,733 confirmed cases, up 39,608 from yesterday’s reporting, 200,229 confirmed deaths, UP 932, and 3,649,836 confirmed recoveries, UP 13,258.  Here are the stats for Israel now that Mo is living there: 172,322 confirmed cases, 1,165 confirmed deaths, and 125,671 confirmed recoveries. 
  64. 2020 Thursday D: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 773,318 confirmed cases, 14,716 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 11,052 confirmed cases, 103 confirmed deaths, and 4,105 confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 84,810 confirmed cases, 2,113 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other state: Texas- currently, they have 706,034 confirmed cases, 14,803 confirmed deaths, and 590,837 confirmed recoveries- thank you, Governor Greg Abbot for being honest with the American people.
  65. 2020 Thursday E: We had a FAIRLY LARGE SELL-OFF today.  Here are the stats for today’s Stock Market closes: first the DOW Jones Industrial Average, 27,901.98, DOWN 130.40 points (-0.47%).  Next, here are the stats for the NASDAQ:  10,910.28, DOWN 140.19 points (-1.27%).  Finally, here are the numbers for the S&P 500: 3,357.01, DOWN 28.48 points (-0.84%).  Price of GOLD: $1,953.80 per troy oz., +3.90 (+0.20%)  Here is the price of SILVER: $27.29 per troy oz., +0.19 (+0.70%).  Price of PLATINUM: $939.60 per troy oz., +8.70 (+0.93%).  Price of PALLADIUM: $2,339.50 per troy oz., +1.00 (+0.04%).  Here is the price of COPPER: $3.08 per #, +0.0125 (+0.41%).   Price of Light Sweet Crude Oil per barrel: $41.04, +0.07 (+0.17%).  Today, one-dollar U.S. = 6.76 PRC yuan whereas one U.S. greenback = 0.84 euros.  Conversely, one dollar U.S. = 29.12 Taiwanese dollars.
  66. 2021 Friday: We encourage everyone top remain alert for whatever collusion the Chi-Coms and their Democratic Party hacks cause today; stick around and find out…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The next archival release from the vaults of Jethro Tull- “Play in Time Live 1970” came out on July 16, 2021.  The first disc on the collection is the “Midnight in Chicago” show from a few offerings back while the second disc features a show that is similar to the “Nothing Is Easy” album we have shared with the readership several times.  What is important is that these albums feature the earlier band when the fire was still blazing away in their bellies and every show was an experience to behold.  We hope you will see this one out, give it a good listen, and enjoy for the ages.  You most certainly will be glad you did.

ENDNOTES:


[i] We first began offering the music of Fleetwood Mac on Monday, 03-January-2011 through Thursday, 27-January-2011.  Please seek their music out by checking posts on those corresponding dates. The album, “Rumours,” appeared on Tuesday, 18-January-2011 at our original blog.   We look forward to picking them back up and doing a Round No. 2 which will include the solo efforts of the band members, too.  We thank you.

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

WE THANK EVERYONE FOR JOINING US AT WORDPRESS.COM AND FOR AIDING US IN CONTINUING TO DO THE WORK WE TOOK UPON OURSELVES MORE THAN A DECADE AGO

The next album by “Badfinger” came out on June 05, 2020: “Kansas City 1972.”  Some reviews claim the album is a must-own while others doubt the group is even on it.  That is one of the problems one finds when archivists and future generations of archivists dig through vaults akin to Al Capone’s vault, the one that POS Geraldo Rivera opened and found nothing but dust bunnies and rat droppings.  While Rivera went home embarrassed as all get out, the archivists manage to put something together, slap a label on it, and make another killing off desperate fans seeking any morsel of music from a much beloved band.  While we don’t recommend this one with the gusto with which we typically do, we encourage everyone to check it out and to then make their own decision.  We think you will make the right choice just as several of us did.

29. 1939 Tuesday: The Spanish Civil War effectively ended as Madrid fell to the forces of Francisco Franco. Under siege for more than two years, the communist Republicans had managed to defend the nation’s capital from the Falangists, aka Fascist, aka Nationalist Spaniards. The Nationalists began rounding up their communist opponents, executing many of them where they stood (the only good communist is a dead communist) while sparing others to begin repairing the damage they caused to both Madrid and to the rest of their nation. A few survivors managed to flee through enemy lines and seek refuge in the mountains.

  62. 2015 Saturday: According to Brainy History, officials find that Andreas Lubitz, co-pilot of downed Germanwings Flight 4U 9525, had mental and physical health problems that he hid from the airline; a doctor’s note was found excusing him from work on the day that he crashed the plane.  Meanwhile, the Saudi Coalition announces that it now has full control of Yemeni airspace while ground fighting continues around the port of Aden.  The Saudis are trying to drive the Iranian-backed Houthi rebels out of their positions and to reassert Yemeni Sunni control of government.
  63. 2016 Monday: Belgian prosecutors release one Muslim guy they scooped up in their search for the jihadists that capsized their country and caused widespread fear throughout Western Europe because the evidence upon which, they arrested him did not support the crimes with which they were trying to charge him.  We hope they kept eyes on him anyway…elsewhere, the Japanese military continues building up its forces and intelligence-gathering apparatuses near the disputed Senkaku Islands, the ones the Chinese covet.

  66. 2019 Thursday: After 100-plus migrants seized control of a merchantmen plying the waters off the coast of Libya- and which then took control of the vessel and ordered its captain and crew to take them to Malta- the Maltese navy arrived on scene, stormed the vessel, freed its crew, and took the pirates into custody.  The ship then went onto Malta where it docked and the scumbag refugees were trotted off to holding cells.  We guess a prison on Malta beats living in Libya without Moammar Gaddafi in charge.  
  67. 2020 Saturday: The Wuhan Virus continues plaguing the world what with confirmed global cases hitting 664,924 with a total of 30,848 deaths and 140,222 recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the United States there are a total of 124,665 confirmed cases with 2,026 deaths and approximately 1,072 recoveries (although the recovery number seems a bit low).  Meanwhile, in Communist China, the authorities have re-opened parts of the epicenter of the virus- Wuhan- after two months of intense isolation including the nailing in of the afflicted into their apartments.

Pink Floyd decided to release the first box set in the band’s evolving history, an 8-CD collection. “Shine On” came out on November 02, 1992, and included “A Saucerful of Secrets,” “Meddle,” “The Dark Side of the Moon,” “Wish You Were Here,” “Animals,” “The Wall,” “A Momentary Lapse of Reason” and at the time unavailable, “The Early Singles,” a collection of the band’s earliest tunes we heard on the radio. This is a worthwhile effort and we encourage everyone to seek it out, to spend the money, and to add it to your collection because of all the extras one gets with it. You will indeed enjoy it for years to come.
