  87. 2021 Thursday H: Joe Biden News I– In an interesting turn of events, Joe Biden is expected to call the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  This is going to drive the Turks berserk.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden is talking about raising the capital gains tax to 39.6-to-43.3-percent which collapsed the stock markets today (see Thursday 2021 D) and will kill all further business development and progress.  Thanks, Joe, thanks.  Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is set to speak with Guatemalan officials on Monday, seeking ways to ‘fix’ the ongoing illegal alien crisis.

VA, says he ‘won’t budge on the Senate filibuster.’  Next, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is going to visit Iowa on June 29, 2021, to help fellow GOP politicians in election bids.  Some believe this is testing the waters for a run in 2024, something with which, we don’t concur.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill that would make Washington, D.C., a state, something the U.S. Constitution expressly forbids.  It moves onto the U.S. Senate.
  89. 2021 Thursday J: Crime And Punishment News– Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a pair of bills into law today that protect motorists from ‘protesters.’  Not long after he did that, there was an INSURRECTION in the State House in which, a bunch of BLM supporters stormed the building and had to be tossed out on their butts by security.  Excellent.   Next, the POS Islamist from Syria[xviii], let in on the refugee program under President Barack Hussein Obama who shot up the King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, is being charged with having a high-capacity magazine.  Say it ain’t so!  Next, Columbus, Ohio, following the death of a 16-year-old Ma’ Khia Bryant was shot dead by a police officer yesterday as she was in the act of stabbing another young girl, protests and riots are occurring in the city, especially after troglodyte LeBron “Fecal Matter” James poured gasoline all over the fire yesterday with a threatening tweet against the officer involved in the action.  Look, when you are threatening someone with an 8-eight-inch blade and you are overheard saying, “I’M GOING TO STAB THE F**K OUT OF YOU, BITCH,” was the officer supposed to stand aside and watch the deed done?  Enough with this bulls**t.  Moving on, Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel program that SEXUAL ASSAULTS in New York City this past couple of months are UP by…get this…322-percent.  Gee whiz.  WTF is Mayor Bill “The Blank” Di Blasio doing to halt this horrendous sexual crime wave?  Nothing.  Finally, the POS Bangladeshi that tried to carry out a suicide bombing in the Times Square subway station received a life term in federal prison today.   
  90. 2021 Thursday K: Supreme Court News– On a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects limits imposed on life sentences for juveniles.  This led to Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor slamming her fellow justices- but Brett Kavanaugh in particular- noting that the newer justices are willing to overturn precedent extremely easy.   Speaking of liberals, Democrats are demanding (don’t they always) that Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from a donor privacy case.  C’mon, Dems NEVER recuse themselves from anything.   Speaking of the nation’s high court, GOP senators are speaking out against the Democratic Party’s twisted scheme of packing the court.[xix]
  91. 2021 Thursday L: Miscellaneous News– The Department of Homeland Security reveals yet another cybersecurity hack into U.S. systems, blaming the Russkies when everyone knows it’s the Chi-Coms doing the evil deeds.  Next, the U.S. Senate passes a bill making it a crime to practice Asian Hate.  Folks, the Dems must tell the BLACK DEMOCRATS to stop attacking the ASIAN DEMOCRATS.  Everyone knows what has been going on, black Americans assaulting Asian Americans and for what?  Did the Dems mobilize their shock troops to commit these heinous acts?  We think so.  Next, former aide to former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, Bridget Kelly, says the ‘big oaf is unfit to ever become president.’  He engineered ‘Bridgegate,’ and Ms. Kelly underwent two criminal trials, was facing prison until the Supreme Court tossed this bogus case.   Elsewhere, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, is scheduled to give the rebuttal to Joe Biden’s upcoming ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress. 
  92. 2021 Thursday M: Foreign News / Overseas News I– Late last night, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you know of whom we speak) carried out a suicide car-bombing outside a luxury hotel in Quetta, Pakistan.  The resulting explosion killed four and wounded at least 11.  Supposedly, the Chi-Com ambassador was on site, so no one knows for sure whether he was the target, or it was just another day at the office for the jihadists.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is putting forth a bill designed to crack down on People’s Republic of China infiltrating our institutions of higher learning.  Good.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, slams the enfeebled Joe Biden over his crackpot plans for rejoining with the Iranians in the deeply flawed JCPOA.   Moving on, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggests the U.S. could give eventual U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens willing to plant trees.  How about they plant them in YOUR country?).
  93. 2021 Thursday N: Foreign News / Overseas News II– A new report suggests that the Russians are suspected of launching directed energy attacks on U.S. military personnel.  Okay, uh, when claims of Vladimir Putin placing bounties atop the heads of U.S. soldiers led to demands that President Donald J. Trump go to war with the Russkies, how come the very same voices aren’t demanding that Joe Biden go to war?  Speaking of the Russians, it appears they have blinked and have pulled their forces back from the eastern border of Ukraine.  Wow.  Joe scared them.  In other ‘foreign news,’ a team of scientists are urging Congress to release more information on UFOs after one incident comes to light in which, a UFO going along at 120 miles per hour over Puerto Rico suddenly splits in two and heads off in different directions.  Folks, we have a problem on this planet.  What are we going to do about it?  (Note- this incident occurred back in 2013 so why are we just hearing about it now?)  Finally, at the upcoming meeting of House Republicans, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that President Donald J. Trump WON’T be addressing the group.

Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 568,861 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 204,106 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 457 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.          
  96. 2022 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: 9,191,546 confirmed cases, 90,145 confirmed deaths, and 8,939,283 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,943,165 confirmed cases, 73,822 confirmed deaths, and 5,808,378 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 238,184 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,483,332 confirmed cases, 12,657 confirmed deaths, and 1,440,717 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., U.S. Virgin Islands: they have 16,091 confirmed cases, 111 confirmed deaths, and 15,736 confirmed recoveries.[xxii]

  99. 2022 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 and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.685 per gallon, $4.110 in Florida, $5.240 in Hawaii, and $4.685 in Washington state.[xxvii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Maryland- $4.047.  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 24th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Russia: $2.421 per U.S. Gallon.[xxviii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,402,029,192,644 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxix]  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 United Arab Emirates the next largest holder of U.S. debt is ALL OTHERS.  These nations holds $215,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  100. 2022 Friday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis– Moscow now says that they are going to conquer all of eastern Ukraine as well as southern Ukraine so they can then focus on intimidating Moldova into submission.   Meanwhile, a new report informs the world that Elon Musk’s Starlink satellites fought off a Russian jamming attack over Ukraine the other day.   Satellite images are showing mass graves surrounding Mariupol in eastern Ukraine holding as many as 9,000 or more corpses.  Whether they are Ukrainian civilians or slain Russians is unclear; however, the defenders within the city continue to put up a defense which is driving the Russians and their mercenaries insane.
  101. 2022 Friday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II– The families of the lost sailors who went down with the Moskva when it was sunk by Ukrainian forces last week are demanding answers from Vladimir Putin and his military regime.  They want to know WHY their sons and daughters went down with the ship in an unnecessary war.   Things are growing much more tense in Russia as the FSB is scooping up critics of the Russo-Ukrainian War such as opposition activist, Vladimir Kara-Murza Jr.  A criminal case has been opened against him and he could soon be staying with Alexei Navalny in the Siberian slammer.   Speculation abounds about Russian President Vladimir Putin as a recent series of photos shows him speaking with his defense minister. His right foot is tapping feverishly, he grips the table with one hand, his face, hands, and neck are bloated, and he looks worse than Adolf Hitler did in 1945.  Regarding Hitler, his personal doctor, Dr. Theodor Morell was injecting the Fuhrer with 75 different drugs per day including methamphetamine so what is Putin’s excuse?  The Joe Biden ‘disease,’ i.e., advance senility?
  102. 2022 Friday H: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I– Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the border disaster for the past 385 days and it’s been 299 days since she arrived on scene to do her job.  What a tragedy.  The cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is $713,581,700.  The cost of caring for the illegals since the two took their oaths to defend the Constitution of the United States and the American people is $42,459,387,443.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since the year began is a shocking 1,139,758.  Next, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is a shockingly low 46,571,415.  We suspect the number to be closer to 85-to-125 million illegal aliens which is a travesty no sane country can withstand. Next, a Texas National Guard member was swept away attempting to rescue struggling illegals drowning in the Rio Grande River.  The search continues for the unfortunate guardsman.  (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 Friday I: Foreign News-Overseas News I– Bowing to pressure, Pope Francis calls off a meeting he had scheduled with a Russian patriarch due to the Russian being an ardent supporter of President Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine.   Meanwhile, another Russian, Olympic swimmer Evgeny Rylov has been given a nine-month suspension in international swimming events because the POS attended a pro-Vladimir Putin rally.  Next, Austria turns off the Russian oil spigot.  Meanwhile, the European Union is begging its citizens to voluntarily reduce energy usage so as to slash the dependence on Russian oil.
  104. 2022 Friday J: Foreign News-Overseas News II– British Prime Minister Boris “BoJo” Johnson is no slacker, and he says that ‘next week, the Brits will be reopening their embassy in Kyiv.’  Wow.  Where the hell is Joe Biden?  (Note- Joe is worried more about trannys and their rights than he is in promoting and defending the United States).   Elsewhere, after back-to-attack attacks on U.S. troops, diplomats from Iraq and Iran to meet. However, President Volodymyr Zelensky says the ‘U.S. most definitely will be reopening their embassy very soon.’  Next, after the Ukrainian postal service debuts a new anti-Russian postage stamp online, a cyberattack shuts them down.

  110. 2022 Friday P: Joe Biden’s Daily Disaster– A new Gallup poll says that Joe Biden’s popularity rating is the second lowest in presidential history.  While we suggest that Barack Hussein Obama’s was worst, we know that President Richard M. Nixon rates the lowest.  In other devastating news to the so-called ‘Catholic president,’ Catholic League President William Anthony Donahue is slamming President Biden over his embrace of ‘transgender mania.’  Yikes, Joe.  How much worse can it get for you?
  111. 2022 Friday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I– Despite a growing rebellion among Democrats and red state governors going for broke to end the border invasion, the Biden regime says that it’s still going to end Title 42 on May 23, 2022,  whether they like it or they don’t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, struggling Joe Biden arrived on the West Coast today to do some fundraising and not to discuss defending our borders.  In Portland, Oregon, Joe Biden gave a rambling, stumbling speech to a tiny crowd and in his remarks, said that ‘Americans should stop feeling sorry for themselves’ regarding inflation and unaffordable prices.  Then in Seattle, he talked about climate change before ambling off into the hands of his handlers.  Where was the Easter bunny?  To cap things off, Joe grasped the lectern, leaned forward to the almost nonexistent crowd, begin whispering, then mumbling, and finally stuttering and stammering about how the GOP has become the MAGA party.  (Note- look for Joe to outlaw the Republican Party ahead of the 2022 Mid-Term Elections).
  112. 2022 Friday R: Joe Biden Regime News II– In Washington, D.C., today, another busload of Joe Biden’s illegal aliens arrived in the nation’s capital.  Dump ‘em on the White House lawn.  They should not need ID there anymore than they need ID along the U.S.-Mexico border.   Next, after the BIG SCARE at the U.S. Capitol yesterday, the FAA says it failed to inform the Capitol Hill Police Department of the parachute jump into Washington Nationals Stadium.  As you recall, a parachutist caused mass panic at the Capitol.  Was it the return of the INSURRECTIONISTS?  Oh, God, say it ain’t so.
  113. 2022 Friday S: Political News I– Democrats do what Democrats do best: use the system to topple their foes.  Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, appeared in administrative court in Atlanta, Georgia, today where her Democrat opponents are trying to remove her from the primary ballot because (1) they hate her and (2) they know they can’t beat her.  He enemies are attempting to tie her to the false flag operation authorized by U.S. House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Charged with no crime, the Dems still seek to remove her from the ballot.  Her attorney informed the hearing that all she did was to exercise her First Amendment rights.  The congresswoman says that all she was doing was asking people to come and to attend a peaceful march.
  114. 2022 Friday T: Political News II– Randi Weingarten- well-known socialist head of the American Federation of Teachers says that ‘parental rights laws in education are the way in which wars are started.’  Wow.  We suspect Ms. Weingarten may be going the way of Jimmy Hoffa soon.  Know when you’ve reached the apex of your career and then bow out gracefully; otherwise, you could end up in a landfill in the Garden State.
  115. 2022 Friday U: Political News III– In dire news for U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, RINO-CA 23rd district, Rep. “Lyin’ Liz” Cheney released audio from around January 06, 2022, in which, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ prompted Leader McCarthy to say that he was going to suggest to President Donald J. Trump that ‘IF impeached again, he should resign.’  This first came up yesterday and Rep. McCarthy denied ever saying it; however, today, ‘Lyin’ Liz’ Cheney got even with the California congressman by releasing the audio damning him as the anti-Trump RINO POS that he is.  Republicans in the Golden State’s 23rd district tell us they will be voting for Republican Jay Obernolte in June’s primary.  Dick Morris told Grant Stinchfield on Newsmax that ‘McCarthy will probably have to go,’ that ‘Trump will most likely push him out,’ and that the ‘only way McCarthy could survive is that he looks better in comparison than Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, RINO-KY.[xxx]
  116. 2022 Friday V: Political News IV– Former President Barack Hussein Obama once again has to add his two bits to the conversation.  He says that Meta-Facebook and Twitter are private companies and don’t have to practice freedom of speech.  Wow.  Next, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DS-NY 14th district, shedding tears while speaking about the trauma she claims to have suffered on January 06, 2021- remember, she was in another building several blocks away from the Capitol- says, ‘this is no joke- they’re coming back.’  Well, this time we hope the ‘insurrectionists find YOU.’ Moving on, Rep. James Comer, R-KY 1st district, says that Twitter ‘must release data on Hunter Biden’s activities and his laptop.’
  117. 2022 Friday W: Political News V– Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY 21st district, says, ‘it’s not right for the Dems trying to force fellow GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th district, off the primary ballot.  In other news, former ambassador to Germany and to the United Nations Ric Grenell says that ‘the Dems, Joe Biden, and ‘Merkelism’ in Germany’ set the war in Ukraine in motion.
  118. 2022 Friday X: Political News VI– Greg Kelly on Newsmax played an audio clip of former Governor John Kasich, RINO-OH, and former ‘2016 presidential primary candidate’ said on his radio show, Kasich and Klepper, that following losing the nomination to businessman Donald J. Trump, he broke down and started blubbering like the crybaby he is.
  119. 2022 Friday Y: Lawsuit and Legal News– The punk who started an altercation with heavyweight boxing champion “Iron Mike” Tyson on an airliner the other day has lawyered up while “Iron Mike’s” legal representatives say the putz was bothering him throughout the flight and then finally threw a water bottle at the famous fighter.  This led Mr. Tyson to turn around and punch the dimwit into early senility.  It’s a cut-and-dry case for Mr. Tyson.  Lock the punk up for instigating a fight he was never going to win.   Meanwhile, Tennessee has passed a new law that will force drunk drivers- guilty of killing a parent while driving while intoxicated- to pay support to the kids of the parents they kill.  This is absolutely amazing.  Good for you!
  120. 2022 Friday Z: Big Tech News– Netflix, reeling from a precipitous drop in stock value through the loss of hundreds of thousands of subscribers said today they will curtail spending in an effort to woo young people back to their crumbling site.  We suspect they will go the way of the ‘video store,’ relegated to the dustbin of history.  Meanwhile, Florida passed the law stripping Disney of its special governing and taxation privileges which led to a precipitous fall in their stock prices.  All Disney has to do is to just shut the hell up.  Be neutral and tell your employees to be neutral, too, while on the job.  Outside of work, if you want to prance around in pink tutus defending ‘transgender rights,’ go for it but stop with supporting the indoctrination of kids ages kindergarten to Third Grade.  Enough is flipping enough, already.  Now, your employer owes billions of dollars in taxes which means some of you are going to get the ax.
  121. 2022 Friday AA: Big Tech News II– New data shows that BIG TECH censored stories critical of Joe Biden 600-plus times over a two-year-cycle.  Why would anyone be surprised?  We know they did everything imaginable to cover up the truth of Hunter Biden’s laptop story which would have swayed the election for sure.  (We still believe that President Donald J. Trump won the 2020 Presidential Election by amazing numbers).
  122. 2022 Friday BB: New York State News– Syracuse Police Chief Kenton Buckner resigned today following video of the arrest of an eight-year-old shoplifter.  Passersby attempted to interfere with the police officers and once again the media is in a stage of outrage screaming and yelling racism.  If a family member would discipline the brat at home, he would not be out shoplifting but no, they permit the kid to run amok and then when he’s caught, the media and their left-wing allies turn it into yet another reason for social unrest across the nation.  Put the kid in with the Cho-Mos.  He won’t shoplift again.
  123. 2022 Friday CC: California Lottery Results-Mega-Millions Draw– Here are the results for the Mega-Millions Draw #1757 what with a $22 million jackpot on the line: 07, 28, 29, 58, 59, and Mega 10.  Out of 51,626 winning tickets, the highest winners were 27 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $513 apiece.

The next archival release Rick Danko’s record company put out is “Live at the Iron Hose, Northampton 1995 with Blondie Chapin and Ed Kaercher.”  This album came out on June 07, 2011, as have his other releases but unlike his ‘solo’ efforts, he has the phenomenal Blondie Chapin (guitars/vocals of Beach Boys fame among others) and Ed Kaercher (guitars, vocals) with which to give it a more electrified sound.  There are 20 tunes, many of which have been culled from the Band’s catalog and which are a joy to hear.  Sadly, they should have been able to have slipped in “Sail On Sailor,” one of the all-time great 1970s Beach Boys albums performed by Blondie Chapin.  We hope you will seek this one out as Danko- troubled star that he was- could deliver the musical goods with the emotional voice denoting fragility, yet strength at the same time.  Great music on a great album by one of the all-time greats- check it out now.  Enjoy.

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…

  63. 2020 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is considering the U.S. designating communist Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism, we believe because of the microwave sonic attacks on our embassy personnel.  The State Department also approves the potential sale of 3,000 smart bombs to Saudi Arabia.  Speaking of the Middle East, B-52 bombers begin flying patrols over the Persian Gulf to put the rat-shit Iranians on their backfoot.  Elsewhere, as things heat up in the two Georgia U.S. Senate run-off races, former President Barack Hussein Obama, and leftist singer/songwriter/performer John Legend team up to make a crappy TV add for ‘Pro-Beijing Jon’ Ossoff.   Regarding these races, leftist commentators are already predicting the results may take weeks to compile.  WTF- it’s a single state.  This should tell everyone shenanigans will be ongoing.  Also, in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp- a man whom President Trump helped get elected- says an audit of Fulton County is ‘not his to order.’
  64. 2020 Wednesday A:  On the world front, Argentina- the land from whence comes the worst pontiff in papal history- Pope Francis- passes a bill legalizing abortion.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms do TWO things: first, they jail activists in Hong Kong seeking to leave for better living conditions elsewhere with sentences of up to three years in a Chi-Com slammer.  Second, Beijing is demanding that Turkey repatriate Uighur Muslims who escaped western China to be returned to the communist country.  Why?  Answer: to join their fellow Uighurs in the concentration camps.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing and the European Union ink an agreement that will ‘open’ China to Western investors.  What can go wrong with this?
  65. 2020 Wednesday B: In Moscow, President Vladimir Putin signs new laws that prohibit his country to control U.S. social media within his borders.  The laws also allow the Russian government to label individuals as ‘foreign agents’ as well as to prohibit the release of data on Russian intelligence officers.  The laws also allow him to run for two more six-year terms.  Mr. Putin just reestablish the Soviet Union and become dictator for life.  There.  We said it, just do it.
  66. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. posts record goods-trade gap ahead of the 2020 holidays.  Meanwhile, Congress creeps closer to overriding President Donald J. Trump’s veto of the $740 billion of the U.S. Defense Policy Bill, all because they won’t strip BIG TECH of its Section 230 protections for platform providers.  The reason the president wants them stripped is because they behave like publishers and must face penalties for their conduct.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocks the $2,000 COVID-19 relief checks demanded by the president while allowing foreign aid to continue flowing to various countries around the world that hate our guts.  See you in six years, Mitch.  Regarding Mitch, Senator Josh Hawley, R-Mo., says he will stand with GOP House members contesting the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  God bless you, Senator Hawley!  
  67. 2020 Wednesday D: Churches in New Mexico are being fined for holding packed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sermons.  Meanwhile, GOP Congressman Adam Kinzinger, Illinois 16th congressional district, mocked Missouri Senator Josh Hawley for saying he will ‘object to election results’ on January 6, 2021.  Kinzinger is little more than a RINO in the pocket of the Deep State and Dems.   Speaking of Senator Hawley, apparently some snowflake at corporate headquarters for Wal-Mart tweeted out that the senator is a ‘sore loser’ and made fun of him, too, which led to a quick about face by Wal-Mart who apologized profusely for what their wayward employee did.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom plans to use $2 billion (the state does not have) to reopen elementary schools.  The man took several billion from the gas tax earmarked for road and highway repairs and diverted it to fight Global Warming, fund the high-speed rail snafu, and fund CalPERS.  Finally, the United Nations says that ‘Trump’s pardons for the imprisoned Black Water operators convicted of killing ‘civilians’ in Iraq violates the Geneva Conventions.’[xi]  
  68. 2020 Wednesday E: The U.S. Census Bureau announces it will miss its deadline which means illegal aliens will most likely be counted in the Census which is not right.  A judge rules that illegal alien families cannot be detained indefinitely.  We say launch Operation Wetback II, load them onto planes, trains, trucks, buses, and run them across the border in Mexico.  If Mexico doesn’t want them, they must stop them from coming.  Meanwhile, pro-illegal alien leftists urge an extension on visa stays for noncitizens in the country while advocates against illegal aliens demand the opposite. 
  69. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 82,510,560 confirmed cases, UP by 601,673 cases, 1,800,400 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,563 deaths, and 46,640,066 confirmed recoveries, UP by 368,822 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 19,910,674 confirmed cases, UP by 197,630 new cases, 344,877 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,693 new deaths, and 8,757,150 confirmed recoveries, UP by 94,066 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 416,584 confirmed cases, 3,307 confirmed deaths, and 372,284 confirmed recoveries.
  70. 2020 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 2,246,307 confirmed cases, 24,963 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,209 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 245,750 confirmed cases, 3,433 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Massachusetts: 367,918 confirmed number of cases, 12,338 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you.  Meanwhile, the U.S. demands the release of a Uighur doctor- Gulshan Abbas- the communist Chinese have given a 20-year stretch in a Chi-Com prison because of the human rights activities of his family in the United States.
  71. 2020 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,409.56, UP 73.89 points (+0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,870.00, UP 19.78 points (+0.15%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,732.04, UP 5.00 points (+0.04%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.00 per troy oz., +6.80 (+0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.74 per troy ounce, +0.167 (+0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,072.60 per troy oz, +15.80 (+1.50%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.40 per troy oz, +34.10 (+1.45%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.26 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.29%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.
  72. 2020 Wednesday I: Girls Scouts USA call on their bakers to address issues of child labor abroad in two Third World countries where young children harvest ingredients the bakers contract to use in their cookie products: Malaysia and Indonesia.  Why don’t we grow, and harvest products used in American food items here in the United States?  We do have tropical climates not only on the U.S. mainland but in Hawaii and in other U.S. territories in the Pacific Region.   Elsewhere, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp pushes back on President Donald J. Trump’s demand for his resignation: ‘Mind your own business.’  Elsewhere, John Paul Mac Isaac, proprietor the computer shop where Hunter Biden left his now infamous laptops for repairs says he ‘never had any intentions of changing the 2020 Presidential Election.  Finally, Alaska Airlines becomes the first major airline to ban ‘emotional support animals.’
  73. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3521 with a jackpot of $7 million up for grabs: 27, 30, 37, 42, 46, and Mega 19.  The highest winners were NINE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,757 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #807 with a massive $363 million jackpot at stake: 03, 43, 45, 61, 65, and Powerball 14.  Out of 131,167 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who got FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,491 apiece.  God bless ‘em!
  74. 2020 Wednesday K: We invite everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good.  We want all of you to discover their misdeeds and crimes along with us…
  75. 2021 Thursday: Stick around…

Wednesday, December 30, 2020, Today in History:  

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] Sometime within the next decade, we hope to present the music of classic rockers Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and numerous others.  We know you will enjoy the presentation so please; remain vigilant for the day we do. 

[ii] We began promoting the music of Mountain beginning on Friday, 14-December-2012 through Sunday, 20-January-2013.  This also included West, Bruce & Laing but sadly, we overlooked Leslie West’s solo career so please stay tuned for his discography sometime in the next 8-12 years.

[iii] Not sure when we will begin presenting the music of this famed American band- the Monkees- but when we do, we also do the solo catalogs of Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork.  Please stay tuned for more information.

[iv] We expect to do the music of Jethro Tull, Wild Turkey, Ian Anderson, and Paris sometime in the next 5-6 years.  We hope you will still be with us.

[v] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

[vi] 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.

[vii] 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.

[viii] We look forward to doing the music of this famed funk-rock band.  The Ohio Players are amazing.

[ix] 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.

[x] 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.

[xi] We say ‘F**k the United Nations.  When the UN calls the Russians on the carpet for all the people they’ve murdered in the Middle East (and around the world) or goes after their bosses, the Chi-Coms for running concentration camps, we will worry about Black Water operators but not until the UN finds its balls and does the job it was created to do.  C**ksuckers.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

112. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 2021

Elsewhere, the Battle of Dien Bien Phu rages on and with the loss of Huguette 1, the People’s Army now is able to blanket the remnants of the airfield as well as the drop zones for reinforcements sent in by air drop. Communist artillery is able to blanket much of the base, taking out supplies as well as causing havoc among the remaining supply vehicles. A counterattack to re-seize Huguette 1 from the communists is planned for tomorrow.

  55. 2003 Tuesday: The Third World wins yet again as the new International Criminal Court selects Argentine lawyer Luis Moreno Ocampo to become the first prosecutor of the new world court.  Instead of choosing American or Europeans to do the honors, they did into the bowels of the Third World to find left-wing individuals to do the dirty work.
  56. 2004 Thursday: On this tragic day, U.S. Army Ranger Pat Tillman, who’d traded in a multi-million-dollar NFL contract to serve in Afghanistan, was killed by friendly fire; he was 27.  Elsewhere, the U.N. Security Council- calling upon all 191 member nations to assist- orders an investigation into the corruption surrounding the “Oil for Food” program set up after the First Gulf War back in 1991.  The program allowed Saddam Hussein to sell oil to the rest of the world in exchange for food.
  57. 2005 Friday: In a federal court, terrorist Zacarias Moussaoui pleads guilty to terrorism charges.  The POS scumbag overslept and failed to show up when the four planes took off on September 11, 2001.  The so-called 20th hijacker will be in prison for years to come…or so we hope.
  58. 2006 Saturday: In Kharkov in the Ukraine, two homemade bombs detonate in two grocery stores injuring 14 people.   Meanwhile, a Taliban roadside bomb claims the lives of four Canadian soldiers. 
  59. 2007 Sunday: “Former Islamist” (NO one is ever a ‘former Islamist’) Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has given the ‘okay’ for the arrest of, detention of, and even the torture of Christian citizens within his country.  Could we see another Armenian Genocide brewing here?  Erdogan is little more than a big piece of festering pig crap and so wants to be a DICTATOR.   Someone needs to eliminate this guy.
  60. 2008 Tuesday: In the Pennsylvania Democratic Party Primary, candidate Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-NY, wins big, giving Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, a big smackdown.   Meanwhile, a federal grand jury in Las Vegas, Nevada, indicts an unidentified suspect on possession of ricin, a nerve agent.
  61. 2009 Wednesday: Japan reports its first trade deficit since 1981.  Meanwhile, the U.S. Senate Intel Committee announces that the Bush administration authorized the use of torture ahead of the capture of foreign jihadists on the battlefield.   The report also noted the calls for use of a specialized facility where ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ would be utilized such as ones learned by the U.S. military from its returned POWs from North Korea during the Korean War.  Wow.
  62. 2010 Thursday: The British Petroleum Deepwater Horizon rig that blew up two days prior begins to sink into the Gulf of Mexico; crude oil leaks into the surrounding waters at an alarming rate.   Authorities estimate at least 8,000 barrels of crude oil are going into the Gulf of Mexico every day as well as diesel fuel that the resulting explosion failed to consume.  Meanwhile, 11 people are still missing…
  63. 2011 Friday: After airstrikes destroy 30 – 40 per cent of Libya’s ground forces, U.S. Admiral Mike Mullen states the war is moving toward a stalemate.  Elsewhere, things go awry in the Gaza Strip when a mysterious blast at a factory- probably a bomb-making factory if you will- occurs sending three fortunate souls to meet with Allah sooner than expected and leaving another three wishing they could have gone with their buddies.  Exercise more caution, jihadis.
  64. 2012 Sunday: The U.S. military is faced with having to monitor its servicemen-and-women in Afghanistan after reports of opiate and other drug usage, as well as distribution, begin to arise.  Of course, this smacks of the Vietnam War Era when numerous service personnel were hooked on opiates or involved in their trafficking.   Meanwhile, naval forces from both Russia and the People’s Republic of China participate in joint exercises in the Yellow Sea.
  65. 2013 Monday: The News Corporation phone hacking scandal results in the company’s agreement to pay $139 million to American shareholders.  Elsewhere, the first performer at the Woodstock Music Festival of 1969, 5:07 to 7:00 P.M.—Richie Havens[ix]—died on this date in Jersey City, N.J. at age 72.  Elsewhere, fighting between Nigerian troops and Boko Haram human scum continues in Borno state.   Human rights activists are blasting the Nigerians but local military authorities claim they are ‘inflating the numbers.’
  66. 2014 Tuesday:  An American, Meb Keflezighi, wins the men’s Boston Marathon, one year after two jihadist brothers from Chechnya bombed the race the previous year; an American last won the men’s race in 1983.  Elsewhere, a Russian court orders Alexei Navalny, an anti-Putin, pro-democracy Russian political activist, to pay the sum of 300,000 rubles to settle a libel suit made by a Putin stooge whom Navalny labeled a drug addict.
  67. 2015 Wednesday: Following a long battle over abortion in the U.S. Senate passes by a unanimous vote a bill to combat human trafficking.  Elsewhere, following disputes between the European Union and Russian natural gas giant, Gazprom, the European Union threatens to launch an anti-trust suit against the company, a company that supplies natural gas to much of the European Continent.  How is this going to end?
  68. 2016 Friday: Mayor Boris Johnson of London is peeved with U.S. President Barack Obama.  The 44th president has this effect on people.  Regarding Brexit, Mayor BoJo, also a member of the British Cabinet, says of President Obama that he is both ‘hypocritical and inconsistent’ in putting in his two cents regarding the desire of the British people to undergo Brexit.  What right does the Bamster have telling another country- especially our oldest ally- to NOT do something.  
  69. 2017 Saturday: As the Trump transition continues, U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy gets the axe and is sent packing.  For the time being, Deputy Surgeon General Rear Admiral Sylvia Trent-Adams will serve as the Acting Surgeon General.  Elsewhere, angry Venezuelans continue protesting against the regime of faux President Nicolas Maduro. 
  70. 2018 Sunday: A bus crash in northern North Korea kills at least 36 people, most of them Chinese tourists.  WTF is there to see in North Korea other than pain, misery, and suffering?   Meanwhile, Saudi warplanes kill 20-plus people at a wedding in northwestern Yemen.   Target: Houthi rebels so the wedding attendees most likely were terrorists.
  71. 2019 Monday: ‘Nobody’ Congressman Seth Moulton, DS-MA 6th congressional district says, ‘I am running for the Democratic Party’s 2020 Presidential nomination.’  Big deal.   Meanwhile, the Trump administration directs that ALL nations buying oil from Iran stop doing so by May 01 so that they can cripple the country economically and stop their march towards the development of nuclear weapons.  
  72. 2020 Wednesday: At the time of this publishing, the confirmed cases of the Chinese Wuhan Virus Crisis, aka COVID-19, aka Coronavirus, aka Wuhan Flu, aka the Kung Flu around the planet sit at 2,614,040 what with confirmed deaths at 182,004 but confirmed recoveries at 706,636.  In the United States, confirmed total number of cases is 840,625 what with 46,996 confirmed deaths and 76,864 confirmed recoveries.  Meanwhile, in the s-hole country where this all began- the People’s Republic of China- the Chin continue claiming 83,868 confirmed cases and 4,636 confirmed deaths.  How interesting is that?  Western intelligence agencies have reported a greater number of deaths that dwarf anything the communist government claims is the truth.  Shame on them.
  73. 2021 Thursday: COVID-19 STATISTICS FOR THE PLANET AS A WHOLE: 144,025,288 confirmed cases, +1,013,182, 3,062,087  confirmed deaths, +15,938, and 82,570,488 confirmed recoveries, +590,604.  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, (figures for the U.S. are the same as yesterday’s) and 119,051,035 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.[x] 
  74. 2021 Thursday 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.    
  75. 2021 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: 3,725,196 confirmed cases, 61,170 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,191,038 confirmed cases, 34,696 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,885 confirmed cases, 474 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 392,013 confirmed cases, 5,466 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., New Mexico, the fictional home of “Breaking Bad”: they have 195,793 confirmed cases, 4,022 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[xi]

  77. 2021 Thursday D:   STOCK MARKET CLOSES/PRECIOUS AND RARE METALS: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,815.90, DOWN 321.41 points (-0.94%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,818.41, DOWN 131.81 points (-0.94%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,134.98, DOWN 38.44 points (-0.92%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.78 per barrel, +0.35 (+0.57%).  The price of GOLD is $1,784.20 per troy oz., +2.30 (+0.12%) while the price of SILVER is $26.18 per troy ounce, -0.01 (-0.02%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,206.50 per troy oz, -2.00 (-0.17%) while the price of COPPER is $4.27 per pound, -0.01 (-0.19%).[xiii]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,828.60 per troy oz, -47.13 (-1.64%).[xiv] The price of RHODIUM is $29,200.00 per troy oz., -300.00 (-1.02%).[xv]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000019.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.49 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.93.     In Iraqi Dinar, one greenback equals 1,460.00 and in Jamaican dollar, a buck equals 150.04.[xvi]   In other business news, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, says that ‘small business owners cannot find enough employees.’
  78. 2021 Thursday 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 $3.979 per gallon, $2.808 in Florida, $3.758 in Hawaii, and $3.397 in Washington state.[xvii]    Let’s look at one other location- Maryland: $2.772.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,201,534,976,782 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.
  79. 2021 Thursday F: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE- a new report hit the news cycle today suggesting that Health and Human Services, an agency headed by Secretary Xavier Becerra, a man who never met an illegal alien he did not want to protect or a baby to abort, is paying travel expenses for (NAMBLA) and other groups to come pick up illegal alien brats and then take them elsewhere in the country.  Shady foster care services are making BIG BUCKS right now caring for illegal alien minors.  Meanwhile, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey, RINO, calls Joe Biden on the spot demanding that the feeble old coot declare a “CRISIS” along the southern border.  Speaking of calling a ‘crisis’ a ‘crisis,’ Politico has forbidden its employees from labeling the southern border crisis a ‘crisis.’  Sad.  (Note- Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden won’t visit the border so he won’t be forced into acknowledging we have a BORDER CRISIS.’   In other border news, Congresswoman Lisa McClain, R-MI 10th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden is aiding the Mexican drug cartels by taking the illegal alien kids and distributing them across the country.’  Can we stop doing this, Joe?   Congressman Darrell Issa, R-CA 50th congressional district, points out that resistance in Arizona to mass illegal alien invasion shows there are problems in the White House.
  80. 2021 Thursday G: EARTH DAY CLIMATE COMMUNISM NEWS- Conservative commentators with the balls to call out Joe Biden point out that his so-called ‘climate summit’ is little more than a gift to the Chi-Coms who will agree to anything and then forge ahead with their plans.  Who can blame them?  Since it’s ‘Earth Day,’ Joe Biden rolls out sweeping new climate goals that are little more than open doorways for communism to consume both the country and the world.  Thanks, Joe.   Speaking of our drooling commander-in-chief, Climate Change protesters pushed pink wheelbarrows full of steer manure through the streets of Washington, D.C. and dumped them out in front of the White House.  They claim Old Joe is full of s**t.  Wow.  Meanwhile, it’s another Earth Day so it’s another opportunity for angry teenager Greta Thunberg to lambaste the world’s politicians once again.  Young lady, why don’t you row your boat to Beijing and tell comrade Xi Jinping how HE is responsible for f**king up the world?  You might find yourself vacationing in Xinjiang Province.   
  81. 2021 Thursday H: JOE BIDEN NEWS I- In an interesting turn of events, Joe Biden is expected to call the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  This is going to drive the Turks berserk.  F**k them.  Meanwhile, Joe Biden is talking about raising the capital gains tax to 39.6-to-43.3-percent which collapsed the stock markets today (see Thursday 2021 D) and will kill all further business development and progress.  Thanks, Joe, thanks.  Next, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is set to speak with Guatemalan officials on Monday, seeking ways to ‘fix’ the ongoing illegal alien crisis.
  82. 2021 Thursday I: POLITICAL NEWS I- Senator Joe Manchin, D-W. VA, says he ‘won’t budge on the Senate filibuster.’  Next, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is going to visit Iowa on June 29, 2021, to help fellow GOP politicians in election bids.  Some believe this is testing the waters for a run in 2024, something with which, we don’t concur.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives approved a bill that would make Washington, D.C., a state, something the U.S. Constitution expressly forbids.  It moves onto the U.S. Senate.
  83. 2021 Thursday J: CRIME AND PUNISHMENT NEWS- Governor J. Kevin Stitt, R-OK, signed a pair of bills into law today that protect motorists from ‘protesters.’  Not long after he did that, there was an INSURRECTION in the State House in which, a bunch of BLM supporters stormed the building and had to be tossed out on their butts by security.  Excellent.   Next, the POS Islamist from Syria[xix], let in on the refugee program under President Barack Hussein Obama who shot up the King Soopers in Boulder, Colorado, is being charged with having a high-capacity magazine.  Say it ain’t so!  Next, Columbus, Ohio, following the death of a 16-year-old Ma’ Khia Bryant was shot dead by a police officer yesterday as she was in the act of stabbing another young girl, protests and riots are occurring in the city, especially after troglodyte LeBron “Fecal Matter” James poured gasoline all over the fire yesterday with a threatening tweet against the officer involved in the action.  Look, when you are threatening someone with an 8-eight-inch blade and you are overheard saying, “I’M GOING TO STAB THE F**K OUT OF YOU, BITCH,” was the officer supposed to stand aside and watch the deed done?  Enough with this bulls**t.  Moving on, Tucker Carlson reported tonight on his Fox News Channel program that SEXUAL ASSAULTS in New York City this past couple of months are UP by…get this…322-percent.  Gee whiz.  WTF is Mayor Bill “The Blank” Di Blasio doing to halt this horrendous sexual crime wave?  Nothing.  Finally, the POS Bangladeshi that tried to carry out a suicide bombing in the Times Square subway station received a life term in federal prison today.   
  84. 2021 Thursday K: SUPREME COURT NEWS- On a 6-3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court rejects limits imposed on life sentences for juveniles.  This led to Associate Justice Sonia Sotomayor slamming her fellow justices- but Brett Kavanaugh in particular- noting that the newer justices are willing to overturn precedent extremely easy.   Speaking of liberals, Democrats are demanding (don’t they always) that Associate Justice Amy Coney Barrett recuse herself from a donor privacy case.  C’mon, Dems NEVER recuse themselves from anything.   Speaking of the nation’s high court, GOP senators are speaking out against the Democratic Party’s twisted scheme of packing the court.[xx]
  85. 2021 Thursday L: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- The Department of Homeland Security reveals yet another cybersecurity hack into U.S. systems, blaming the Russkies when everyone knows it’s the Chi-Coms doing the evil deeds.  Next, the U.S. Senate passes a bill making it a crime to practice Asian Hate.  Folks, the Dems must tell the BLACK DEMOCRATS to stop attacking the ASIAN DEMOCRATS.  Everyone knows what has been going on, black Americans assaulting Asian Americans and for what?  Did the Dems mobilize their shock troops to commit these heinous acts?  We think so.  Next, former aide to former Governor Chris “Krispy Kreme” Christie, Bridget Kelly, says the ‘big oaf is unfit to ever become president.’  He engineered ‘Bridgegate’ and Ms. Kelly underwent two criminal trials, was facing prison until the Supreme Court tossed this bogus case.   Elsewhere, Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, is scheduled to give the rebuttal to Joe Biden’s upcoming ‘address’ to a joint session of Congress. 
  86. 2021 Thursday M: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS I- Late last night, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ (you know of whom we speak) carried out a suicide car-bombing outside a luxury hotel in Quetta, Pakistan.  The resulting explosion killed four and wounded at least 11.  Supposedly, the Chi-Com ambassador was on site so no one knows for sure whether he was the target or it was just another day at the office for the jihadists.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AR, is putting forth a bill designed to crack down on People’s Republic of China infiltrating our institutions of higher learning.  Good.  Next, Senator Rick Scott, R-FL, slams the enfeebled Joe Biden over his crackpot plans for rejoining with the Iranians in the deeply flawed JCPOA.   Moving on, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador suggests the U.S. could give eventual U.S. citizenship for illegal aliens willing to plant trees.  How about they plant them in YOUR country?).
  87. 2021 Thursday N: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS II- A new report suggests that the Russians are suspected of launching directed energy attacks on U.S. military personnel.  Okay, uh, when claims of Vladimir Putin placing bounties atop the heads of U.S. soldiers led to demands that President Donald J. Trump go to war with the Russkies, how come the very same voices aren’t demanding that Joe Biden go to war?  Speaking of the Russians, it appears they have blinked and have pulled their forces back from the eastern border of Ukraine.  Wow.  Joe scared them?  In other ‘foreign news,’ a team of scientists are urging Congress to release more information on UFOs after one incident comes to light in which, a UFO going along at 120 miles per hour over Puerto Rico suddenly splits in two and heads off in different directions.  Folks, we have a problem on this planet.  What are we going to do about it?  (Note- this incident occurred back in 2013 so why are we just hearing about it now?)  Finally, at the upcoming meeting of House Republicans, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA 23rd congressional district, says that President Donald J. Trump WON’T be addressing the group.

ENDNOTES:


[i] Folks, we are the only site with the balls to point out that Earth Day is little more than a surreptitious way with which to shove communism down our throats with a smiley face attached to it (look at that angry little dingbat Greta Thunberg, that girl needs to get a life).  When you consider all the things the Earth has been through, through the Industrial Age through numerous wars in which millions of bombs were dropped, fired, or set off, i.e., high explosive, poison gas, white phosphorous, and incendiaries, just as the number of nuclear tests below ground, on ground, in the atmosphere, or in the depths of the ocean and the planet is still here.  We’re not saying any of this is or has been good; no, what we are saying is that the planet has amazing recuperative powers and as long as we maintain the health of our oceans, rivers, lakes, streams, and ponds just as we keep the air clean, our planet is going to continue to survive.  Please, let us stop making more Greta Thunberg-like crazed lunatics, no more AOC and others of her squad, let’s set these dimwits straight and let’s work toward the maintenance of a clean environment and towards nuclear power for all.  Likewise, we know hydrogen burned as fuel provides water vapor so what happened to fueling our vehicles with hydrogen?  It’s all about CONTROL.  CONTROL of you, me, of everyone and everything so dimwits like John Kerry and the rest of the Green Regime can live in luxury and style.  We say, “FUCK THEM!  FUCK EARTH DAY!  FUCK EVERY LITTLE PANSY WHO SNIVELS AND WHINES THE PLANET IS DYING.”  Stupid fucks.  

[ii] We hope to promote the music of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, as well as of each member’s solo careers along with Crazy Horse within the next 5-7 years.  Please remain vigilant for when we do.

[iii] We presented the music of Quicksilver Messenger Service on two unique occasions.  The first commenced on Friday, 25-March-2011 through Monday, 04-April-2011.  The second cycle with newer albums began on Tuesday, 20-August-2013 through Monday, 02-September-2013.  We hope you will check the albums out by visiting whatever site you do for nothing but the absolute best in rock music.

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

[vi] Martin Windrow’s superb book, “The Last Valley,” Da Capo Press 2006 as well as Time-Life Books excellent series on the Vietnam War serve as the main sources for this historic battle.

[vii] Alas, if only that indoctrinated moron Greta Thunberg was alive back then!  She would have been the center of attention.

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

[ix] We look forward to promoting the music of Edwin Starr one day along with Richie Havens and other famed soul (and folk) singers like Richie Havens.

[xx] It’s important to note that the Dems have a secondary plan with which to achieve the rulings they seek and that is the constant threat of packing the court.  In so doing, it forces the court to yield more Democrat-friendly rulings so the Dems WON’T pack the court.  NO one can ever trust the flipping Democrats.

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.

  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.

  62. 2020 Wednesday: U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is considering the U.S. designating communist Cuba a state sponsor of terrorism, we believe because of the microwave sonic attacks on our embassy personnel.  The State Department also approves the potential sale of 3,000 smart bombs to Saudi Arabia.  Speaking of the Middle East, B-52 bombers begin flying patrols over the Persian Gulf to put the rat-shit Iranians on their backfoot.  Elsewhere, as things heat up in the two Georgia U.S. Senate run-off races, former President Barack Hussein Obama, and leftist singer/songwriter/performer John Legend team up to make a crappy TV add for ‘Pro-Beijing Jon’ Ossoff.   Regarding these races, leftist commentators are already predicting the results may take weeks to compile.  WTF- it’s a single state.  This should tell everyone shenanigans will be ongoing.  Also, in the Peach State, Governor Brian Kemp- a man whom President Trump helped get elected- says an audit of Fulton County is ‘not his to order.’
  63. 2020 Wednesday A:  On the world front, Argentina- the land from whence comes the worst pontiff in papal history- Pope Francis- passes a bill legalizing abortion.  Meanwhile, the Chi-Coms do TWO things: first, they jail activists in Hong Kong seeking to leave for better living conditions elsewhere with sentences of up to three years in a Chi-Com slammer.  Second, Beijing is demanding that Turkey repatriate Uighur Muslims who escaped western China to be returned to the communist country.  Why?  Answer: to join their fellow Uighurs in the concentration camps.  Speaking of the Chi-Coms, Beijing and the European Union ink an agreement that will ‘open’ China to Western investors.  What can go wrong with this?
  64. 2020 Wednesday B: In Moscow, President Vladimir Putin signs new laws that prohibit his country to control U.S. social media within his borders.  The laws also allow the Russian government to label individuals as ‘foreign agents’ as well as to prohibit the release of data on Russian intelligence officers.  The laws also allow him to run for two more six-year terms.  Mr. Putin just reestablish the Soviet Union and become dictator for life.  There.  We said it, just do it.
  65. 2020 Wednesday C: The U.S. posts record goods-trade gap ahead of the 2020 holidays.  Meanwhile, Congress creeps closer to overriding President Donald J. Trump’s veto of the $740 billion of the U.S. Defense Policy Bill, all because they won’t strip BIG TECH of its Section 230 protections for platform providers.  The reason the president wants them stripped is because they behave like publishers and must face penalties for their conduct.  Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blocks the $2,000 COVID-19 relief checks demanded by the president while allowing foreign aid to continue flowing to various countries around the world that hate our guts.  See you in six years, Mitch.  Regarding Mitch, Senator Josh Hawley, R-Mo., says he will stand with GOP House members contesting the fraudulent 2020 Presidential Election.  God bless you, Senator Hawley!  
  66. 2020 Wednesday D: Churches in New Mexico are being fined for holding packed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day sermons.  Meanwhile, GOP Congressman Adam Kinzinger, Illinois 16th congressional district, mocked Missouri Senator Josh Hawley for saying he will ‘object to election results’ on January 6, 2021.  Kinzinger is little more than a RINO in the pocket of the Deep State and Dems.   Speaking of Senator Hawley, apparently some snowflake at corporate headquarters for Wal-Mart tweeted out that the senator is a ‘sore loser’ and made fun of him, too, which led to a quick about face by Wal-Mart who apologized profusely for what their wayward employee did.  Elsewhere, California Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom plans to use $2 billion (the state does not have) to reopen elementary schools.  The man took several billion from the gas tax earmarked for road and highway repairs and diverted it to fight Global Warming, fund the high-speed rail snafu, and fund CalPERS.  Finally, the United Nations says that ‘Trump’s pardons for the imprisoned Black Water operators convicted of killing ‘civilians’ in Iraq violates the Geneva Conventions.’
  67. 2020 Wednesday E: The U.S. Census Bureau announces it will miss its deadline which means illegal aliens will most likely be counted in the Census which is not right.  A judge rules that illegal alien families cannot be detained indefinitely.  We say launch Operation Wetback II, load them onto planes, trains, trucks, buses, and run them across the border in Mexico.  If Mexico doesn’t want them, they must stop them from coming.  Meanwhile, pro-illegal alien leftists urge an extension on visa stays for noncitizens in the country while advocates against illegal aliens demand the opposite.
  68. 2020 Wednesday F: Here are the latest stats for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, straight out of the fetid bowels of the world’s lone communist semi-superpower: 82,510,560 confirmed cases, UP by 601,673 cases, 1,800,400 confirmed deaths, UP by 13,563 deaths, and 46,640,066 confirmed recoveries, UP by 368,822 recoveries from yesterday’s figures.  Here are the numbers for the United States: 19,910,674 confirmed cases, UP by 197,630 new cases, 344,877 confirmed deaths, UP by 3,693 new deaths, and 8,757,150 confirmed recoveries, UP by 94,066 new recoveries.  (The number of recoveries would be even greater if Blue State governors would report them but alas, we know they won’t- corrupt POSs).  Now that Mo is living in Israel, here are the numbers for that nation: 416,584 confirmed cases, 3,307 confirmed deaths, and 372,284 confirmed recoveries.
  69. 2020 Wednesday G: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day employs chef-authors, California, Hawaii, and Washington, here are the stats, Golden State first: 2,246,307 confirmed cases, 24,963 confirmed deaths, but as is the norm, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.  Next, here are the stats for the Aloha State: 21,209 confirmed cases, 285 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION OF confirmed recoveries anymore- what is up with YOU, Gov. Ige, you Democrat hack.  Finally, in the Ever-Red, uh, we mean, the Evergreen State, here are the stats: 245,750 confirmed cases, 3,433 confirmed deaths, but like California, the gorilla-faced governor, Jay Inslee, won’t share the number of confirmed recoveries.  Shame on these flipping Democrats.  Let’s take a look at one more state, Massachusetts: 367,918 confirmed number of cases, 12,338 confirmed deaths, and sadly, no mention of the confirmed number of recoveries- thank you. Meanwhile, the U.S. demands the release of a Uighur doctor- Gulshan Abbas- the communist Chinese have given a 20-year stretch in a Chi-Com prison because of the human rights activities of his family in the United States.
  70. 2020 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 30,409.56, UP 73.89 points (+0.24%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 12,870.00, UP 19.78 points (+0.15%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,732.04, UP 5.00 points (+0.04%).  The price of GOLD is $1,900.00 per troy oz., +6.80 (+0.35%) while the price of SILVER is $26.74 per troy ounce, +0.167 (+0.63%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,072.60 per troy oz, +15.80 (+1.50%) while the price of COPPER is $3.55 per pound, +0.005 (+0.14%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,378.40 per troy oz, +34.10 (+1.45%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $48.26 per barrel, -0.14 (-0.29%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.52 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.81 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.88.
  71. 2020 Wednesday I: Girls Scouts USA call on their bakers to address issues of child labor abroad in two Third World countries where young children harvest ingredients the bakers contract to use in their cookie products: Malaysia and Indonesia.  Why don’t we grow and harvest products used in American food items here in the United States?  We do have tropical climates not only on the U.S. mainland but in Hawaii and in other U.S. territories in the Pacific Region.   Elsewhere, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp pushes back on President Donald J. Trump’s demand for his resignation: ‘Mind your own business.’  Elsewhere, John Paul Mac Isaac, proprietor the computer shop where Hunter Biden left his now infamous laptops for repairs says he ‘never had any intentions of changing the 2020 Presidential Election.  Finally, Alaska Airlines becomes the first major airline to ban ‘emotional support animals.’
  72. 2020 Wednesday J: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Super Lotto Draw #3521 with a jackpot of $7 million up for grabs: 27, 30, 37, 42, 46, and Mega 19.  The highest winners were NINE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Mega for a prize of $1,757 apiece.  Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #807 with a massive $363 million jackpot at stake: 03, 43, 45, 61, 65, and Powerball 14.  Out of 131,167 winning tickets, the highest winners were TWO people who got FOUR numbers plus the Powerball for a prize of $36,491 apiece.  God bless ‘em!
  73. 2020 Wednesday K: We invite everyone to stick around to discover whatever the Chi-Coms and their flunkies in the Democratic Party are up to today- you know they’re up to no good.  We want all of you to discover their misdeeds and crimes along with us…

[v] We look forward to doing the Clash but expect to do Supertramp first, then Pink Floyd, then Electric Light Orchestra/the Move, then Yes, and then perhaps the Clash.  They are among the amazing British rock bands of the 1970s and deserve to be acknowledged as such.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

 

 

6. #PM01.1i 6PM #9 08-19-16 (400)

Phil Manzanera, the amazing minimalist guitarist who says much with a few notes, released his next solo effort in 2004, the acclaimed “6:00 P.M.” Once again, he has some current and former band mates from Roxy Music join him but he also performs many other instruments besides playing his guitar. We hope you will go directly to Amazon.com where you can purchase the CD in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you—you will be so glad you did.
