130. TODAY IN HISTORY—TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2022

1943 Monday: The coming late spring-early summer offensive in the Soviet Union is getting in motion. Operation Citadel- the attack on the Kursk Salient in the Ukraine- has been given the go-ahead by Hitler himself even though German intelligence assets have told the Fuhrer that the Soviets have established a massive defense in depth. This will be the greatest clash of armor and tactical aircraft the world has ever seen.

  62. 2008 Saturday: Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, takes the lead in the superdelegate count- a very peculiar thing the Democrats have to steal nominations in presidential elections for their chosen candidate.  The first-term Illinois senator is smoking Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY.

  64. 2010 Monday: Solicitor General Elena Kagan is the youngest nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court and the third woman.  Elsewhere, jihadists carry out a wave of suicide attacks across Iraq, blowing up at least 102 unsuspecting souls and injuring more than 200.  Ah, the ‘religion of peace.’

  68. 2014 Saturday: According to Brainy History, Brazilian police distribute pamphlets to World Cup visitors with instructions on how to behave in the event of a robbery; law enforcement means the ‘advice’ to protect victims from injury or death during crime.

  71. 2017 Wednesday: To the delight of environmentalists everywhere, the U.S. Geological Service releases a study claiming that some glaciers in Montana have receded by 85-percent over the past half-century.  No wonder imbeciles such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez believe the world is coming to an end soon.  Sadly, the Sun is the sole driver of all climatic changes throughout the entire Solar System.  Conversation and fighting pollution is indeed important but the Earth- and other planets- have all gone through periods of climate change throughout the history of said Solar system.  Meanwhile, to the ‘horror’ of Democrats, President Donald J. Trump shares classified intelligence regarding an ISIS attack coming soon against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak and Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the Oval Office.  (Hence, Trump-Russia ‘collusion’).
  72. 2018 Thursday: Following Iran firing missiles into Israel’s Golan Heights from Syria, the IDF lights up Iranian targets in Syria with 70 missiles, blowing up numerous installations and other military infrastructure.  Of course, Iran claims Israel started the fight.

  76. 2021 Monday A: NOTE: Since Joe Biden became President on January 20, 2021, there have been 280,304 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, the 46th president is shy 182,305 deaths.      
  77. 2021 Monday 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: 3,759,618 confirmed cases, 62,314 confirmed deaths, and 2,003,503 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,272,102 confirmed cases, 35,785 confirmed deaths, and 1,853,131 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,267 confirmed cases, 488 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 416,317 confirmed cases, 5,626 confirmed deaths, and 202,588 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Northern Marianas Islands, yet another place  the Democrats will want to transform into a state after D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam, and Virgin Islands become states: they have 170 confirmed cases, 2 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.[x]

  79. 2021 Monday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 34,742.82, DOWN 34.92 points (-0.10%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,401.86, DOWN 350.38 points (-2.55%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,188.43, DOWN 44.17 points (-1.04%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $64.85 per barrel, -0.07 (-0.011%).  The price of GOLD is $1,835.50 per troy oz., -2.10 (-0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $27.37 per troy ounce, -0.12 (-0.44%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,249.50 per troy oz, -16.00 (-1.26%) while the price of COPPER is $4.70 per pound, -0.02 (-0.45%).[xii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,952.91 per troy oz, +26.40 (+0.90%).[xiii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,900.00 per troy oz., -400.00 (-1.37%).[xiv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.42 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.92.     In Seychellois Rupee, one greenback equals 15.18 and in Sierran Leonean Leone, a buck equals 10,154.00 and in Singapore Dollar, one dollar equals 1.33 of theirs.[xv]       
  80. 2021 Monday 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 $4.103 per gallon, $2.876 in Florida, $3.810 in Hawaii, and $3.514 in Washington state.[xvi]    Let’s look at one other location- Pennsylvania: $3.088.  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- Sudan: $2.026 per U.S. Gallon.[xvii]  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,270,989,160,341 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xviii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Under President Biden’s lack of attention, the border continues being overrun by illegal aliens.  ‘Border Czar’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris is in her 48th day as the so-called ‘Border Czar’ and has yet to tour the region.   Meanwhile, reporters from various news agencies continue reporting on the nonstop flow of illegal aliens pouring into the country.  One reporter on Fox News Channel witnessed a group of 40 or more Venezuelans walking across the Rio Grande this morning.  Hence why we say the river should be seeded with alligator pups.  Why aren’t local authorities running miles of razor wire along the border under their authority?  Minefields, folks, minefields.
  82. 2021 Monday G: Joe Biden Regime News I– Today, we learned that after four months ‘on the job,’ Joe Biden has left dozens of ambassadorships unfilled.  What’s up with that?  Next, President Biden restores ‘tranny health protections’ reversing yet another President Donald J. Trump policy.  In other questionable news, a new AP-NORC Poll says that President Biden’s ‘approval ratings’ are buoyed by his pandemic response.’  WTF?  The commander-in-chief has done flipping nothing to improve the lives of the American people.  Next, supposedly Joe Biden is meeting with GOP leaders at the pivotal point in his ‘deal-making.’  What deal-making?   Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell, RINO-KY, says, ‘the GOP is willing to agree to $800 billion on infrastructure but not the $1.3 trillion’ demanded by Joe Biden’s handlers.
  83. 2021 Monday H: Chi-Com News I– New reports are surfacing that suggest the Chi-Coms planned to weaponize bat viruses such as COVID-19 back in 2015 to further their Chi-Com BS agenda.  Screw them.  Next, author Gordon Chang says that the Chi-Coms ‘committed mass murder of Americans using COVID-19 as their weapon.’  In other Chi-Com news, the communists are demanding- we repeat- DEMANDING- the U.N. cancel a hearing on Uighur Muslims.  (Note- the communists don’t want anyone to know about their Nazi-like efforts to liquidate the Uighur Muslims and other religious and ethnic minorities so the Han Chinamen can rule supreme.  F**k them).
  84. 2021 Monday I: Foreign News / Overseas News– Overnight in Israel, 80 people have been injured fighting Israeli authorities.  It’s Muslim celebration time and when they celebrate, they attack Israeli military, law enforcement, and even the citizens.  For the first time in history, Hamas has fired rockets, we repeat- ROCKETS- into Jerusalem, a place the morons claim is SACRED to them.  The Knesset had to evacuate, so great was the danger.  (Note- folks, this is why God gave the world the neutron bomb- like Hamas and the rest of the trash up NOW). Ramadan begins in two days and of course, the Palestinians are going to run amok.  Elsewhere, U.S. Coast Guard assets working in the Straits of Hormuz were forced to fire warning shots at pesky Iranian swift boats trying to harass U.S. assets.  Sink them.  
  85. 2021 Monday J: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says, ‘there’s no doubt that the United States UNDERCOUNTED COVID-19 deaths.’  He also believes we must continue wearing masks into 2022.   Elsewhere in the world, once the COVID-19 curfews were lifted, people are now hosting and enjoying LARGE PARTIES.   Meanwhile, a new TIPP Poll says that the number of Americans who won’t take the vaccine has now risen to 26-percent.   Next, the FDA approves Pfizer-BioNTech’s Chi-Vi vaccine for use with 12-15-year-olds. In other Chi-Vi news, Wyoming joins the ranks of states to BAN COVID-19 ‘vaccine passports.’  Awesome.  Finally, many Catholic schools are having trouble in the times of COVID-19 keeping their doors open for students.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– The Arizona 2020 Election Audit is off to a bad start as they cannot get their hands on the routers, the passwords, and other valuable information and tools so they can uncover the truth about the election many believe was STOLEN.  IF the Democrats have NOTHING to hide- then hand the requested stuff over to the investigators.   Meanwhile, Michigan is filing a lawsuit pleading evidence shows that votes in that state for President Donald J. Trump were flipped over to drooling old Joe “I’m a Racist” Biden.  Godspeed. 
  87. 2021 Monday L: Business News– Thanks to the stupidity of the Joe Biden regime, restaurants across the United States- including ours- are suffering due to a hiring crisis.  People make more money to sit at home on their asses than they do at work.  However, senile old Joe Biden did say that ‘if the unemployed don’t take jobs offered to them, they will lose their benefits.’  How does that work, Joe?  Employers aren’t going to people’s homes begging them to go to work.  What crap.  Speaking of the ‘generous unemployment benefits’ (until they run out and the country goes broke), Governor Spencer J. Cox, R-UT, says that the ‘added benefits are a disincentive.’  Amen.   Elsewhere, a California man was arrested for his $5 million PPP scam.  The dimwit spent the money on expensive sports cars.  The dumb ass is going to prison.  SOB.
  88. 2021 Monday M: National Security News– The Colonial oil pipeline shutdown enters its fourth day.  The 1,500-mile-long pipeline runs through 17 states.  Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO 3rd congressional district put out a tweet in which she said- more or less- that ’17 U.S. national security and intelligence agencies said there was NO interference in the 2020 Elections yet NONE of them had a clue that a pipeline running through 17 states was in danger of being hacked.’[xix]  Elsewhere, new information continues to arise showing that Hunter Biden may have had a close relationship with a Chi-Com female agent in much the same way as the slow-witted so-called ‘farter-in-chief’ Rep. Eric Swalwell, DS-CA 15th congressional district, had with Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang, an operative of the Ministry of State Security, the MSS, an organization comparable to the KGB.  This woman sent Hunter Biden opposition research for his father’s 2020 presidential run.  Hmmm…
  89. 2021 Monday N: Political News I– Sadly, we learnt today just how compromised U.S. Attorney General William “Bill” Barr was- he fought to keep flawed FBI Director Christopher Wray in his position.  Wow.  Next, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s TAX LIE has been exposed by rising inflation.  Speaking of Leader McCarthy, he backs Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st congressional district, over GOP House Conference Chair Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, someone who can’t move on from January 06, 2021, and who won’t STFU about it.  She must GO.   Speaking of ‘Liz Cheney,’ U.S. Army Colonel Denton Knapp, Retired, is running for the windbag’s seat in 2022.  Elsewhere, Rep. James “Influence” Clyburn, D-SC 6th congressional district, says he is ‘willing to consider police reform without ending qualified immunity for law enforcement officers.’  Hmmm.  We shall see.
  90. 2021 Monday O: Political News II– President Donald J. Trump is endorsing Lt. Governor Dan Patrick, R-TX, for re-election.  Next, after the world learned that Kentucky Derby winner Medina Spirit ‘was doped,’ the 45th president pointed out that crap such as this is emblematic of the way the United States is going.  We agree.  Meanwhile, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, says that ‘Joe Biden bears full responsibility for the LOW JOBS report of last week.’
  91. 2021 Monday P: Social Media News And Big Tech News– Numerous state attorney generals are seeking to stop Instagram’s ‘children’s accounts’ where the social media app can monitor and influence children’s minds.  We concur.  Later today, the FBI has confirmed that Darkside did indeed hack the Colonial pipeline.
  92. 2021 Monday Q: Wokeism / Woke / Wokies– Rep. Jerry Carl, R-AL 1st congressional district, told Newsmax that ‘the United States is distracted by WOKE.’  Amen.  Next, NBC is dropping the Golden Globes in 2022 over a diversity snafu. 
  93. 2021 Monday R: Miscellaneous News I– Quarterback Tim Tebow has signed a one-year deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  Soon, we will hear sobbing and wailing from fans of communist Colin “The Communist” Kaepernick whom NO ONE still will employ.  Boohoo.   Next, the IOC president called off a trip to Tokyo due to the ‘VID outbreak that just won’t go away there.   Meanwhile, Tucker Carlson broke the news of the DEEP TIES between the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci and his U.S. taxpayer funding of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, the birthplace of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.  The question he raises is WHY the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci is not the subject of a criminal investigation or why he isn’t sitting in the hot seat before Congress getting his balls grilled off by concerned representatives and senators?  Damned good question.  The fact that the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci’s department helped FUND this debacle means he should be doing challenging time in the slammer NOW.  Is this what the Democrats are willing to do to destroy a highly popular president such as Donald J. Trump?  Shocking.
  94. 2021 Monday S: Whacked-Out News Of The Day– Nonagenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi has been blasted over her inability to distinguish one black baseball player from another.   It has come to light that when the aging speaker afflicted with dementia sent out birthday greetings to famed San Francisco Giants slugger, Willie Mays, for his 90th birthday (May 06, 1931),  she put out a picture of her and another dingbat with Giants player Willie McCovey who died on October 31, 2018.  When a big uproar descended upon her aging back, she had the temerity to blame a staffer for her failure to determine one black baseball legend from another.  Ain’t that how it always goes?  (Note- Nance, you truly should consider retirement and we mean YESTERDAY, not today).
  95. 2022 Tuesday: You know the drill…

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

The sophomore effort by the Beach Boys- “Surfin’ USA”- came out on March 25, 1963, and featured the same lineup of Brian Wilson (bass, piano, and vocals), Dennis Wilson (drums and vocals), Carl Wilson (lead guitar and vocals), Mike Love (vocals), and David Marks (rhythm guitar and vocals).  This album continued the new group’s rise to the top via tunes such as the title track, “Farmer’s Daughter,” and “Shut Down.”  The Beach Boys were not content to ride the wave with just one genre of music, i.e., surf music, as numerous copycats were jumping aboard the surf train.  They also were delving into their love of hot rods, hot chicks, and wild times in So-Cal.  Hawthorne, California, would never be the same nor would the world.  We hope you will seek this one out and make it a part of your daily listening pleasure- you will be glad you did.  Enjoy.

[xix] Here is what WE think: like the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico blew up back in 2010, at the time many of us had our suspicions that the Obama-Biden administration had some foreknowledge of that event and used to shut down offshore oil drilling for years.  They shut down drilling off our coasts but allowed the rigs to relocate off the coast of Brazil to drill for oil down there.  Likewise, we think the Russian-backed Darkside hacking group shut this extremely important pipeline so as (1) to cut the amount of oil in the country; (2) to drive up the costs of oil and oil-based products; and (3) to help hasten the bullshit Green New Deal through to being.  Mark our words- Olaf Bologolo. 

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.

  64. 2019 Saturday: Our ‘beloved’ Pope Francis, the 266th Roman Catholic pontiff, donates half-a-million bucks to ‘help’ migrants trying to reach the U.S. border via caravan who are stranded in Mexico City.  Let them remain there.  Meanwhile, a shooter opens fire at a synagogue in Poway, California, managing to slay one and wound three before being taken down himself.   God bless the victims.
  65. 2020 Monday: Thanks to the reopening of some states, the Stock Market has a momentous day.  The DOW Jones Industrial Average closes up 358.51 at 24,133.78; the S&P 500 closes up 41.74 at 2,878.48; and the NASDAQ closes up 95.64 at 8,730.16.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the one the Chinese claim is ‘not theirs but came out of the United States’ continues causing problems.  Global statistics show that currently, we have 3,002,303 confirmed cases what with 208,131 confirmed deaths and 878,813 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,005,934 confirmed cases what with 56,329 confirmed deaths but 112,913 confirmed recoveries so things are looking good- most places.  California’s confirmed cases rest at 44,792 and at 1,755 confirmed deaths.  The Chinese continue lying about their numbers.  Elsewhere, people continue to speculate about North Korean thug dictator, Kim Jong Un, who has been absent from world view for the past two weeks.  Many speculate he contracted COVID-19 and is near or at death whereas others claim he is on a ‘holiday.’  We shall see.  Finally, apparent Democratic Party 2020 presidential nominee Joseph R. 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!
  66. 2021 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 148,190,387 confirmed cases, +864,953, 3,126,361  confirmed deaths, +14,155, and 85,879,081 confirmed recoveries, +850,124.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,375,602 confirmed cases, UP 55,477 from yesterday’s reporting, 579,162 confirmed deaths, UP 806,[v] and 119,318,872 confirmed recoveries, UP 24,064.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[vi]  
  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.    
  68. 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: 3,735,524 confirmed cases, 61,477 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,217,368 confirmed cases, 34,958 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,349 confirmed cases, 478 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 399,331 confirmed cases, 5,498 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., South Dakota, the state with a damaged GOP governor: they have 122,228 confirmed cases, 2,663 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii]   
  69. 2021 Tuesday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,217 confirmed cases, 6,359 confirmed deaths, and 830,088 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Costa Rica, a bastion of freedom in Central America and where some of us might be becoming citizens if the pretender in the White House is not ejected out upon his flat ass: 241,240 cases of the virus, 3,168 confirmed deaths and 201,264 confirmed recoveries.[viii]

  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.

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.

  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.

  49. 2008 Sunday: News begins to break about a scumbag named Josef Fritzi in the town of Amstetten, Austria, had a special cellar in his house where he imprisoned his daughter Elisabeth from the age of 18 onward for the next 24 years.  He raped her and fathered seven children with her, three girls and four boys.  By the time the authorities discovered what this monstrous scumbag had done, he was age 74.  The trial was swift and he received a life sentence.   We’re sorry, the Austrian government should have shot this POS.  
  50. 2009 Monday: A 23-month-old Mexico City toddler died at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, becoming the first swine-flu death on U.S. soil.  Meanwhile, a strong earthquake hammered Mexico, rattling nerves among residents already tense from a swine flu outbreak.  Elsewhere, former WBA heavyweight champion Greg Page died at home in Louisville, Kentucky, of positional asphyxiation.  He was 50 years old.  Over the course of his pro-career, he amassed a record of 58 fights, 48 wins (17 Kos), and  1 draw.  Finally, one of President Barack Hussein Obama’s Air Force One jets, a Boeing 747, and an F-16 fighter jet panicked New Yorkers as they circled over lower Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty for what turned out to be a photo op.  Many people believe this to have been staged, the president committing a heinous practical joke above a city scarred from the 9-11 Attacks eight years before.  What a POS.

  53. 2012 Friday: The wives and children of the dead terrorist thug, Osama bin Laden suffer deportation from Pakistan back to their homes in Saudi Arabia.  Meanwhile, in the People’s Republic of China, blind dissident Chen Guangcheng escapes house arrest and goes on the lam.  The authorities are going nuts and the dragnet is on…

Breyer breaks his shoulder on a fall from his bicycle and is taken to the hospital by ambulance.  Meanwhile, in Karachi, Pakistan, members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam, launch a terror attack killing 10 and injuring at least 25 people. 
  55. 2014 Sunday: The high court in Egypt dishes out some stiff sentences to pro-Mohammed Morsi rioters- 11 of them this time- of anywhere from 5 to 88 years in the slammer for running amok and rioting in the streets. 
  56. 2015 Monday: The 82nd U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder left office on this date.  A Democrat, he served under President Barack Hussein Obama from February 03, 2009 until today.  His successor, Loretta Lynch- the 83rd U.S. attorney general assumed office today and served until January 20, 2017.
  57. 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.
  58. 2017 Thursday: Julius Younger, American virologist who helped create the Salk polio vaccine dies at age 96 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump softens his stance on NAFTA by saying he ‘seeks to renegotiate it.’ 
  59. 2018 Friday: North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un meets with his South Korean counterpart, President Moon Jae-in to ‘end the Korean War and to rid the Korean Peninsula of nuclear weapons.’  Meanwhile, German leader Angela Merkel makes a one-day trip to Washington, D.C., to meet with President Donald J. Trump.
  60. 2019 Saturday: Our ‘beloved’ Pope Francis, the 266th Roman Catholic pontiff, donates half-a-million bucks to ‘help’ migrants trying to reach the U.S. border via caravan who are stranded in Mexico City.  Let them remain there.  Meanwhile, a shooter opens fire at a synagogue in Poway, California, managing to slay one and wound three before being taken down himself.   God bless the victims.
  61. 2020 Monday: Thanks to the reopening of some states, the Stock Market has a great day.  The DOW Jones Industrial Average closes up 358.51 at 24,133.78; the S&P 500 closes up 41.74 at 2,878.48; and the NASDAQ closes up 95.64 at 8,730.16.  Excellent.  Meanwhile, the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the one the Chinese claim is ‘not theirs but came out of the United States’ continues causing problems.  Global statistics show that currently, we have 3,002,303 confirmed cases what with 208,131 confirmed deaths and 878,813 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 1,005,934 confirmed cases what with 56,329 confirmed deaths but 112,913 confirmed recoveries so things are looking good- most places.  California’s confirmed cases rest at 44,792 and at 1,755 confirmed deaths.  The Chinese continue lying about their numbers.  Elsewhere, people continue to speculate about North Korean thug dictator, Kim Jong Un, who has been absent from world view for the past two weeks.  Many speculate he contracted COVID-19 and is near or at death whereas others claim he is on a ‘holiday.’  We shall see.  Finally, apparent Democratic Party 2020 presidential nominee Joseph R. 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!
  62. 2021 Tuesday: Stick around…

U. 1942 Thursday: The first troop ships sail out of Scotland, bound for Vichy French territory in Algeria and at the port city of Oran. The Allies were underway with driving the Axis out of North Africa. On the Eastern Front, fighting in Stalingrad continues to rage as the Germans are in a position to seize the Red October and Barricades factories while the other tractor factory also is within their grasp. According to historian Geoffrey Jukes, the toll is horrendous with the Germans losing one full division every five days or less while Russian units- 37th Guards, 308th and 193rd Infantry Divisions of the 82nd Army could field little more than two hundred men.

  61. 2020 Thursday B: Facebook’s little Mark Zuckerberg and his clone Jack Dorsey at Twitter (aka ‘Shitter’) receive subpoenas to appear before the Senate and to answer questions as to why they are such left-wing POS who believe they can control the flow of information.  They have allowed every hateful piece of disinformation on President Donald J.

  66. 2020 Thursday G: The final presidential debate is in the books and it was a good one.  We must say to Kristen Welker- the moderator- that she did a stellar job and that that POS Chris Wallace could learn much from her.  Both men held their own, loads of information was delivered, and it is up to everyone to determine whom they believe to be more truthful and whom they believe to be the winner.  We will find out on November 3.
