  57. 2013 Tuesday: Brainy History says, ‘a new study reports that all Europeans are related to a small group of ancestors dating back only 1,000 years; researchers believe it’s likely that everyone in the world is related over the past few thousand years.’  Meanwhile, members of the ‘religion of peace’ Islam- Boko Haram carry out a terror attack in Nigeria that kills at least 55 people and wounds numerous others.

  59. 2015 Thursday: It appears that the NFL has implicated New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in ‘Deflate-Gate.”  This is the scandal in which, both the Indianapolis Colts and the Baltimore Ravens claimed the famed quarterback used footballs in playoff games that were under pressure, making them easier for Brady to handle.  His father, Tom Brady, Sr., claims it is all a ‘frame.’
  60. 2016 Saturday: Democratic voters on Guam head to the polls in their caucuses.   Elsewhere, near Aleppo, Syria, Iranian troops are battling ISIS thugs and in heavy fighting lose 13 of their soldiers, their biggest loss of life since coming to the aid of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Oliver North, U.S. Army Ret., will become the organization’s next president.   Elsewhere, Paraguay becomes the third country to announce the relocating of its embassy from Tel Aviv to capital of Israel, Jerusalem.  Of course, liberals and Gaza Strip trash are wailing and crying that it’s an ‘affront’ against humanity to do so.  The sooner the better, Paraguay.
  63. 2019 Tuesday: In Venezuela, turmoil- as usual- reigns supreme as the Congress strips opposition leaders of immunity and accuses them of treason.   Elsewhere, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo makes a surprise visit to Iraq to meet with U.S. military and Iraqi leaders so they can determine what to do as the Iranians continue making threats against both nations.  Nuke them.

Currently, Joe is shy 183,514 deaths.      
  68. 2021 Friday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,756,393 confirmed cases, 62,220 confirmed deaths, and 2,001,539 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,262,598 confirmed cases, 35,644 confirmed deaths, and 1,836,489 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 33,036 confirmed cases, 486 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 414,899 confirmed cases, 5,620 confirmed deaths, and 202,488 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s recovery numbers).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Puerto Rico, a place  the Democrats want to make our first welfare state: they have 253,302 confirmed cases, 2,355 confirmed deaths, and 112,074 confirmed recoveries.[x]   
  69. 2021 Friday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,858 confirmed cases, 6,375 confirmed deaths, and 831,432 confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s figures).   Let’s look at one non-country- Oman, a relatively peaceful Arab country: 199,344 cases of the virus, 2,083 confirmed deaths and 181,696 confirmed recoveries.[xi]

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

The tertiary effort by the Band- “Stage Fright” came out on August 17, 1970 and was a wonderful addition to the band’s growing discography.  Once again, the band featured the lineup of Rick Danko (bass, vocals, and fiddle), Robbie Robertson (guitars and vocals), Levon Helm (drums, percussion, vocals, mandolins, and tambourines), Richard Manuel (pianos, organs, and vocals), and Garth Hudson (keyboards and saxophones).   The album contained two big hits- the title track and “The Shape I’m In.”  What we have for you today is the “Stage Fright 50th Anniversary Edition” (where the hell does the time go?), a deluxe version that came out on December 16, 2020.  We hope you will seek this one out and consider adding it to your collection as there’s nothing better than this glorious group.  Ask anyone who’s seen them in their heyday, and you will understand just how legendary and amazing they were.  You will love them just as we do.  Enjoy.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  74. 2020 Sunday:  On the COVID-19 battlefront today, the world announces 2,965,263 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus what with 206,265 confirmed deaths but 863,464 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have 985,027 confirmed cases what with 55,383 confirmed deaths but 109,12 confirmed recoveries.  Communist China continues lying by claiming the same number of cases that they have been reporting for a couple of weeks now: 88,423 confirmed cases, 4,632 confirmed cases, and 81,785 confirmed recoveries.  The fact that the Chinese continue spreading this bulls**t means when we come out on the other side that we hammer them with all manner of lawsuits, that we repatriate American industries in their country, and that we return to a Two-China Policy in which, we recognize Taiwan, aka Nationalist or Free China, as the rightful ruler of the mainland portion of the country.  It would serve Beijing right.  Either that or pay $10 million per death to the victims of the virus they engineered in their Wuhan Institute of Virology around the entire world.  
  75. 2021 Monday: COVID-19 Statistics for the Planet as a Whole: 147,346,436 confirmed cases, +697,114, 3,112,206  confirmed deaths, +9,618, and 85,028,957 confirmed recoveries, +539,462.  Next, here are the stats for the United States: 32,320,125 confirmed cases, UP 75,508 from yesterday’s reporting, 578,356 confirmed deaths, UP 1,132,[vii] and 119,078,566 confirmed recoveries, UP 2,264.  Note- we are going to do our own estimates of recoveries based on percentages seeing as how the CDC won’t report them.[viii] 
  76. 2021 Monday A: Note: Since Joe Biden Became President On January 20, 2021, There Have Been 263,905 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.    
  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: 3,731,677 confirmed cases, 61,434 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,212,097 confirmed cases, 34,912 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 32,284 confirmed cases, 478 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 397,006 confirmed cases, 5,478 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Rhode Island, the smallest state in the Union: they have 146,960 confirmed cases, 2,663 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries.[ix]   
  78. 2021 Monday C: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 838,107 confirmed cases, 6,353 confirmed deaths, and 829,983 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one non-country- Lithuania, a bastion of freedom in the Baltic: 241,872 cases of the virus, 3,857 confirmed deaths and 218,011 confirmed recoveries.[x]    
  79. 2021 Monday D:   Stock Market Closes/Precious And Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,981.57, DOWN 61.92 points (-0.18%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,138.78, UP 121.97 points (+0.87%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,187.62, UP 7.45 points (+0.18%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $62.05 per barrel, +0.14 (+0.26%).  The price of GOLD is $1,782.00 per troy oz., +1.90 (+0.11%) while the price of SILVER is $26.31 per troy ounce, +0.10 (+0.39%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,255.20 per troy oz, +8.80 (+0.71%) while the price of COPPER is $4.46 per pound, +0.02 (+0.43%).[xi]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,912.58 per troy oz, -0.97 (-0.03%).[xii] The price of RHODIUM is $28,800.00 per troy oz., 0.00 (0.00%).[xiii]    Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.48 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 19.87.     In Kenyan Schilling, one greenback equals 108.00 and in Korean- North Won, a buck equals 900.03 and in Angolan Kwanza, one dollar equals 652.83 of theirs.[xiv]  
  80. 2021 Monday 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 $3.994 per gallon, $2.788 in Florida, $3.743 in Hawaii, and $3.413 in Washington state.[xv]    Let’s look at one other location- Missouri: $2.568.  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 absolute lowest gasoline price, Venezuela: $0.076 per U.S. Gallon.[xvi]  How about that?  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,217,294,081,383 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xvii]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.
  81. 2021 Monday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe– Customs and Border Patrol confirmed early today that 800 Venezuelans have been apprehended along our southern border attempting to cross into the U.S.  According to the Bidenistas, these intruders will most likely be given protected status meaning U.S. taxpayers will be footing the bill for decades to come as well as for their ever-increasing progeny.   In other border news, the Grand Old Party (GOP) claims that ‘IF we win back the majority in the House in 2022, we will refund the construction of the border wall.’  (Note- we believe that besides the wall, we should lay in minefields, obstacles for vehicles, boats, and people, as well as electrifying a second inner fence and the building of foo gas trenches past that.  We also believe that baby alligators must be seeded from the Deep South to the Rio Grande, and also that military bases should be relocated to the border, especially since we do much of our war-fighting in the Middle East.  Add to that the laying in of razor wire fences along the boundary line through the middle of the Rio Grande and the positioning of fast action helicopter and drone forces would also help halt the cartels just as targeted assassinations of coyotes would be good, too.  This would solve a lot of problems.  Period).
  82. 2021 Monday G: Foreign News / Overseas News– at a recent confab of House Republicans, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo warned his fellow Republicans NOT to go soft on ongoing Chi-Com espionage operations ongoing in the United States.  We must remain vigilant.   Next, Israeli intelligence officials are planning a visit to Washington, D.C. to see their counterparts and to warn them that Joe Biden’s concessions to the Iranians are not beneficial for either nation.   Sadly, this announcement follows on the heels that former U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry, Democratic-Socialist, tipped off the Iranians more than 200 covert Mossad operations in Syria which makes him a prime candidate for prosecution under the Logan Act.  The POS scumbag did this while Donald Trump was the president of the United States.  Prosecute this loser and send him to federal prison.  Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan tells Joe Biden that he should reconsider calling the ‘Armenian Genocide’ the ‘Armenian Genocide.’  (Or else!).
  83. 2021 Monday H: COVID-19 Updates And Additional Information– the Centers for Disease Control says that ‘summer camps in the U.S. may reopen as long as social distancing rules are observed and masks are worn.  Next, the Biden administration is sending vaccines and PPE gear to India, the nation now beset by the most cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.   Next, Chloé Zhao who won three Oscars at last night fiasco found her success censored in communist China because she criticized the communist nation.  Oi vie! 
  84. 2021 Monday I: Voting Integrity / Fraudulent And Stolen Election News– First, Democrats continue doing everything to continue stealing elections what with 10 states seeking to empower felons leaving prison with the right to vote.   Next, as the effort to audit the 2020 Election in Arizona continue, the judge scheduled to oversee the effort- Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Christopher Coury- recused himself because some of the attorneys involved in the effort worked as interns for the court official. 
  85. 2021 Monday J: Joe Biden News– Ten U.S. states are suing the Biden administration over its ‘draconian climate change laws, rules and regulations.’  Good.  All 50 states and the U.S. territories and commonwealths should be suing the Biden administration, too.  Next, Joe Biden plans to feed 34 million schoolchildren via another high-priced plan.  Sorry, Joe, we can feed our own kids.  F— you.[xviii]  Next, President Donald J. Trump’s chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, says that ‘Joe Biden’s tax plan is an assault on investment and investors.’  Add to that the fact that critics are lambasting senile old Joe by reminding him of what he did back in 1972 with taxes and how now in demanding tax increases across the board, he is coming into conflict with both the GOP and SALT (state and local taxes) rebels.  Elsewhere, as if things are not bad enough for the inept Biden regime, Rep. Kevin Brady, R-TX 8th congressional district, says that ‘Joe Biden’s tax hike on capital gains is a MAJOR BLUNDER.’  Finally, America First Legal and Trump adviser Stephen Miller are filing lawsuits against the Biden regime accusing the bumbling Biden regime of RACISM in that its ‘plan’ to help ranchers and farmers is ONLY for black ones, not whites.  This is clearly racist and a violation of the American people’s civil rights.  NOT good for Joe.
  86. 2021 Monday K: Political News I–  Goofy Rep. Tim “Poached Egg Eyes” Ryan has officially announced that he is running for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Senator Rob Portman.  Big deal.   Next, Rep. Liz Cheney, RINO-WY, says that the leaders of the GOP are ‘Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell.  We’ll see, Liz, we’ll see.  We’ll check back in on your in November 2022.   In other fascinating news, pundits are pointing out that Fox News LOSER Chris Wallace just cannot get beyond President Donald J. Trump nor the Antifa and Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Capitol Hill Riots of January 06, 2021.  Chris, there is a reason as to WHY we mostly no longer watch Fox News but especially the weekends when you are on the air.  POS.
  87. 2021 Monday L: Political News II– In Connecticut, District Court Judge Robert Chatigny has dismissed a law preventing trannys from participating in scholastic sports within the state.  WTF?  Next, former Rep. Doug Collins, R-GA 9th congressional district, rules out a run for the governorship in the Peach State or for any other office.  Moving on, Democrats are sobbing big tears of grief because it looks like the 2020 Census is going to lead to the loss of numerous Democrat seats due to people pouring out of BLUE STATES and relocating to RED STATES that are going to get new GOP seats in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Add to that the redistricting that is going to happen and it would appear the Dems’ goose is cooked.  In other fascinating news, we learned today that 62-percent of WHITE LIBERALS are afflicted with mental illness.  Hell, we could have told you that without having to consult psychiatrists. 
  88. 2021 Monday M: U.S. Supreme Court News– For the first time in nearly two decades, SCOTUS agrees to hear a case regarding concealed carry of handguns.  Next, SCOTUS rejects the GOP’s bid to revive the PUBLIC CHARGE rule put in place by President Donald J. Trump that people seeking asylum in the U.S. had to be able to support themselves without receiving government aid.  Democrats can’t have that- they want to care for their low-wage slaves like they’re wee babes in need of Nancy Pelosi’s drooping breast milk.  Man, put it back into effect, let’s stop supporting illegal aliens and take care of the American people. 
  89. 2021 Monday N: Miscellaneous News I– An ‘Anti-Asian/Anti-Pacific Islander Hate Bill’ passes in the U.S. Senate by a vote of 99-1.  Good.  Democrats, tell the black Democrats to stop attacking the Asian and Pacific Islander Democrats.  The lone NO vote belonged to Senator Josh Hawley, R-MO.  He voted against it because he said it ‘was too broad and scope and could infringe on the rights of others.’  Speaking of Asian hate, a black man violently attacked an Asian man in New York City.   Next, U.S. Attorney General Merrick “The Mole” Garland announced today that the ‘U.S. Department of Justice is launching an investigation into the Louisville, Kentucky, police department in the aftermath of the death of Breonna Taylor.  (Note- another police department beats the dust). 
  90. 2021 Monday O: Miscellaneous News II– The Oscar ratings last night are even worse than last year’s what with 9.85 million viewers.  In 2020, 23 million tuned in and that was considered LOW.  Everyone is pointing out that WOKEISM is killing show business, it’s killing sports, and it’s killing the American way of life.  We must stand against WOKEISM at every turn which means, NO MORE MOVIES and NO MORE SPORTS.  In other news, first-time gun purchases are driving gun sales in the U.S.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump’s official portrait is now on display in the official gallery of presidential portraits.  Finally, 53 women made it through United States Marine Corps boot camp, a place that was formerly ALL male.  Congratulations.
  91. 2021 Monday P: Business News– Panera Bread Company is back in the black what with delivery and takeout meals.  Next, a Florida McDonald’s restaurant is paying people $50 just to show up and interview.
  92. 2022 Tuesday: COVID-19 Statistics for The Planet as a Whole– 510,837,666 confirmed cases, +767,216, 6,249,012 confirmed deaths, +3,439 and 464,046,721 confirmed recoveries, +960,671. Next, here are the stats for the United States: 82,789,716 confirmed cases, UP 55,853 from yesterday’s reporting, 1,019,008 confirmed deaths, UP 426,[xix] and 80,547,402 confirmed recoveries, UP by 40,466.    We genuinely welcome COVID Live Update World Meter for being honest in covering ALL the numbers- God bless them.[xx]
  93. 2022 Tuesday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 569,715 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 204,960 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 461 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  94. 2022 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: 9,212,425 confirmed cases, 90,324 confirmed deaths, and 8,958,374 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,955,748 confirmed cases, 73,869 confirmed deaths, and 5,813,904 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 245,035 confirmed cases, 1,407 confirmed deaths, and 238,861 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,489,316 confirmed cases, 12,668 confirmed deaths, and 1,444,636 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., U.S. Military: they have 619,078 confirmed cases, 685 confirmed deaths, and 591,443 confirmed recoveries.[xxi]   
  95. 2022 Tuesday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day– Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 4,066,021 confirmed cases, 10,694 confirmed deaths, and 4,026,872 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- MS Zaandam, 224th place on the list: 9 cases of the virus, 2 confirmed death and 7 confirmed recoveries.[xxii]

  97. 2022 Tuesday 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 $5.684 per gallon, $4.137 in Florida, $5.249 in Hawaii, and $4.688 in Washington state.[xxvi]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Missouri- $3.758.  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 28th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Kyrgyzstan: $3.007 per U.S. Gallon.[xxvii] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,410,752,888,854 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxviii]  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 the United Kingdom the FOURTH largest holder of U.S. debt is Ireland.  This nation holds $318,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  98. 2022 Tuesday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Vice President Kamala Harris has been in charge of the southern border for the past 389 days and it’s been 303 days since she showed up to do the job although she has an excuse at the moment: she is among the pandemic of the vaccinated.  Fully vaxxed, fully boosted, she has COVID-19- yet again– and yet, they still want everyone to undergo vaccination.  F**k them.  Ah, well, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegal alien invaders since New Year’s Day is $739,167,760.  The cost of caring for them since the un-dynamic duo took charge is $42,484,973,503.  Next, the number of illegals pouring into the country this year is 1,181,861.  Finally, the conservative low estimate is 46,613,518.  We suspect the truer numbers are closer to 95-to-135 million illegals which is godawful bad. (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).
  99. 2022 Tuesday G: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe II– Rep. Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says ‘it’s great news that the judge blocked Joe Biden from ending Title 42.’  Speaking of Title 42, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced a new plan for what happens after Title 42 goes down on May 23, 2022.  Rep. Brian Babin, R-TX 36th district, says that ‘IF Secretary Mayorkas won’t protect the border, he must go.’  We concur.  NOW.  Next, the world-famous ‘border czar,’ “Kooky Kamala” Harris has tested positive for the Chi-Vi.  Hence, she is unavailable to do her job which she seemingly NEVER does.

104. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, APRIL 14, 2022

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

  35. 1954 Wednesday: French paratroopers crawl forward inch by inch towards the People’s Army communist thugs who have cut a major gash into the air strip upon which the French defenders of Dien Bien Phu depend.  The communists thought they were untouchable when the paras stormed into their positions with grenades, small arms, and knives and killed most of the Viet Minh and sent the rest scurrying for their lives.  Meanwhile, other French troops are trying to reach Huguette 6 at the far end of the airstrip with water and ammunition so the remaining troops there can continue repelling one human wave attack after another.

  50. 2002 Sunday: Dictator and thug Hugo Chavez returns to power in Venezuela.  Many people will pay the price for his return.  The people of Venezuela tried to depose this POS, but enough scumbags rallied to his side to save him and put him back in power.
  51. 2003 Monday: It sucks to be a terrorist: in Baghdad, U.S. troops capture a Palestinian POS, Abu Abbas, a man responsible for murdering an American on the cruise ship Achille Lauro, sailing in the Mediterranean when it was commandeered by jihadists.  The scum threw disabled passenger Leon Klinghoffer overboard in his wheelchair.  Brave scumbag.  Hang him.  Elsewhere, near Richmond, California, the headless body of a female and a fetus with the umbilical cord still attached wash up on the shore.  Law enforcement officers test the body for DNA and learn that the remains are those of Laci Peterson and her unborn baby who have been missing from their Modesto, California, home since December 24, 2002.  This would bode ill for her husband and the baby’s father, Scott Peterson.
  52. 2004 Wednesday: In a historic policy shift, President George W. Bush endorsed Israel’s plan to hold on to part of the West Bank in any final peace settlement with the Palestinians.  He also ruled out Palestinian refugees returning to Israel, bringing strong criticism from the scumbag Palestinians.
  53. 2005 Thursday: Near the Palestinian town of Nablus, Israeli troops whack a member of the terrorist group, Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigade, who was preparing to launch an attack into Israel.  Israeli officials placed blame for the incident squarely atop the shoulders of the Palestinian garbage running the show in Gaza City.  These people are all jihadists and jihadists must be whacked wherever discovered.  Excellent work, Israel!
  54. 2006 Friday: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad meeting with Hamas officials at a conference on Palestinian statehood blasts the Israeli government as being a dying, rotten tree, one that will disappear with the first storm.’  Israel is still there, and Ahmadinejad is full of fecal matter.  Elsewhere, Chad severs ties with the Sudan after Islamist rebels from Chad carry out an attack within their own country, killing at least 350 people and wounding countless others.  Chad points the finger of blame directly at Khartoum which remains mum.
  55. 2007 Saturday: Not that it did any good, 200,000 people take to the streets in Ankara, Turkey, protesting against the possible candidacy of want-to-be dictator for life, incumbent Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  The POS is still there in 2020.   
  56. 2008 Monday: Delta Airlines Incorporation and Northwest Airlines Corporation announced they were merging.   Elsewhere, the U.S. is beginning to occupy its brand-spanking new $736 billion embassy in Baghdad, Iraq.  The facility is about the size of the Vatican City and can reportedly withstand any assault by terrorists.  We shall see.   Meanwhile, the World Food Bank announces a plethora of new emergency measures with which to combat the rising costs of food prices.  People in the developing world are running amok in the streets, having food riots, attacking stores and warehouses.  It’s getting ugly out there.
  57. 2009 Tuesday: In a big day for Somali pirates, the scum seize four ships taking 60 hostages.  Elsewhere, North Korea said it was restarting its rogue nuclear program (what else is new?), booting U.N. inspectors and pulling out of disarmament talks in an angry reaction to U.N. Security Councils condemnation of its April 15 rocket launch.
  58. 2010 Wednesday: The Vatican finds itself in the hotseat when a top cardinal within the church links homosexuality with pedophilia in discussions over the recent wave of sex scandals threatening the institution.  You know, if the shoe fits; still, whether the Roman Catholic Church knows it or not, everyone is beginning to get WOKE.  Some things you can say and others you can’t and what the cardinal said is one of the bad ones…in other news, whispers are coming out of the White House that President Barack Hussein Obama is going to debut a new plan with which to send American astronauts to Mars.  Supposedly, this will occur tomorrow.  The funny thing is that NOT long after he became president, he scrapped NASA’s plans for returning astronauts to the moon.  He wanted the money for his bogus social re-engineering programs.
  59. 2011 Thursday: President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy publish an op-ed in a global newspaper- International Herald Tribune– in which the three leaders share their vision on how best to end the Libyan Civil War, one these guys sort of had a hand in starting and now like George W. Bush and his ill-fated Iraq War 2003, once they broke it, they own it.
  60. 2012 Saturday: The U.S., Russia, and China begin talks on Iran’s nuclear program.  Elsewhere, South Korean naval vessels search the Yellow Sea on the lookout for a failed North Korean missile test which went down into the ocean shortly after launch.
  61. 2013 Sunday: In anticipation of Croatia becoming a full-fledged member of the European Union, the nation selects its first MPs through an election.   Elsewhere, following the death of Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez (died March 05), Venezuelans go to the polls for a snap presidential election.   Meanwhile, South Korean continues putting out feelers to its counterparts in the North which are rebuffed yet again.  Light ‘em up, civilized world, light those North Koreans up.  
  62. 2014 Monday: According to Brainy History, the Washington Post and The Guardian win the Pulitzer Prize for reporting of surveillance programs by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA); the investigations relied on thousands of documents leaked by Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor.  Elsewhere, folks waiting at a bus station outside the Nigerian capital city of Abuja have a horrible day when twin bombings occur.  According to Al Jazeera, at least 71 people are sent to meet their Maker while at least another 120 probably wish they could.  Once again, the so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.
  63. 2015 Tuesday: President Barack Hussein Obama meets with Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi to discuss the ongoing fight against the Islamic State.  The American president says he will send the nation ‘humanitarian aid’ but in his usual ‘f**k this’ attitude, will not commit to sending the beleaguered nation military supplies.
  64. 2016 Thursday: Palestinians are always causing trouble and today is no different.  In Jerusalem, Israeli law enforcement catch two Palestinian 12-year-old boys who had an assortment of knives concealed within their clothing.  Off they went to the Hoosegow.  Meanwhile, near Hebron, a Palestinian extremist attacks an Israeli soldier with an axe but who is then shot dead for his troubles.  Piss on them.  Elsewhere, the Chinese announce they are going to prosecute 357 of its citizens for the illegal sale of vaccines.  What kind of vaccines? 
  65. 2017 Friday: Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez, already serving a life sentence for a 2013 murder, was acquitted in Boston in a 2012 double-homicide that prosecutors claimed was fueled by his anger over a drink spilled on him at a nightclub.  Five days later, Hernandez supposedly hanged himself in his prison cell.   Elsewhere, European vessels plying the waters off of the Libyan coast come upon another floundering load of Sub-Saharan African ‘migrants’ and yank 2,000 of them out of the water.  
  66. 2018 Saturday: Terrorists attack an Egyptian army outpost in the Sinai today killing several soldiers.  At least 12-14 jihadis ran amok, four of them detonating suicide vests as they grappled with the soldiers.  At least 8 Egyptian soldiers lost their lives in the skirmish.  Further north, problems continue along the border between Israel and Gaza.  A visiting delegation of Egyptian leaders encourage the Palestinians to call off their ‘Great March of Return.’  This event witnesses Hamas sending out cannon fodder to engage with the Israeli Defense Forces so people can get killed and Hamas can then point fingers at Israel.  We say, stop giving the Palestinians money.  Period.
  67. 2019 Sunday: Freshman Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, a woman with numerous problems, finds herself at the center of controversy yet again after comments made at a 9/11 speech come to light in which, she tries to cover up the role of Islam in bringing down the Twin Towers.  President Donald J. Trump hammers the skank while- shock of shocks- Nancy Pelosi rushes to her defense.  Boot both women out of Congress.
  68. 2020 Tuesday: Today, former President Barack Hussein Obama endorsed his former vice president, “Pro-China Joe” Biden for the 2020 presidential nomination of the Democratic Party.  He did so via social media.  Mr. Obama joins the Chinese taskmasters running the Biden campaign in selecting the ‘right man for the job’ should he win in November (which he won’t).  Meanwhile, the Kung Flu- aka COVID-19, aka coronavirus, aka Wuhan Virus, aka Wuhan Flu, aka Wuhan Virus Crisis- continues claiming lives and causing economic destruction wherever it occurs.  Current statistics show a total of 1,968,943 confirmed cases with 123,783 confirmed deaths and 464,135 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, we have a total (at the time of this update) 598,737 confirmed cases what with 24,770 confirmed deaths and 38,015 confirmed recoveries.  We must thank our Chinese ‘friends’ for giving us the gift that won’t stop giving.  Thank you, People’s Republic of China, thank you.
  69. 2020 Tuesday A: As of this evening, the world has 1,981,239 confirmed cases of the Wuhan Virus Crisis what with 126,681 confirmed deaths and 486,622 confirmed recoveries.  In the United States, 614,416 confirmed cases and 29,897 confirmed deaths and 48,036 confirmed recoveries.  Now, get this, the People’s Republic of China claims to have 84,393 confirmed cases, 3.342 deaths and 78,877 confirmed recoveries.  Amazing is it not?  The U.S. State Department estimates that in truth, at least 2.2 million to 2.5 million fatalities connected to this lab-engineered, diabolical virus and yet, they claim it ain’t so.  Meanwhile, President Donald J. Trump announces that he will put a hold on the money the United States gives to the World Health Organization.  About time, Mr. President, about time.  How about putting an American into the place of Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus?  That makes more sense than having a Third World toady for China in the gig.

  71. 2021 Wednesday A: NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 242,664 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- feeble old Joe, in another two to three weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the rampaging coronavirus pandemic.   Dr. Scott Gottlieb takes the ‘Biden administration’ to task for NOT surging vaccines and resources into coronavirus hotspots but to continue doling vaccines out based on population numbers. 
  72. 2021 Wednesday B: COVID-19 STATISTICS in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,706,728 confirmed cases, 60,507 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 2,141,686 confirmed cases, 34,164 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 31,175 confirmed cases, 471 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s count).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 381,537 confirmed cases, 5,391 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same as yesterday’s).  Let us look at one other portion of the U.S., Utah, the home of a bunch of rebellious Mormons who dressed up like Native Americans and attacked settlers on the Oregon Trail: they have 391,177 confirmed cases, 2,161 confirmed deaths, but sadly, NO mention of confirmed recoveries.[vii]

  75. 2021 Wednesday E: U.S. NATIONAL DEBT AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE THREE STATES IN WHICH WE HAVE CHEF-AUTHORS– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.937 per gallon, $2.842 in Florida, $3.745 in Hawaii, and $3.340 in Washington state.[xiii]    Let’s look at one other location- Iowa: $2.778.  Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,170,800,252,848 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.[xiv]  Cloward and Piven causing problems like they always do.  In other business news, Toshiba’s CEO and President Hisao Tanaka resigned today in the wake of a $20 billion buyout offer.   Next, Univision announces plans for a merger with Televisa which will also provide a streaming service for Spanish language audiences.   Elsewhere, Tesco reports a 20-percent drop in its profits even during the online boom in business, thanks to the Chi-Com Virus ravaging the country and the world.
  76. 2021 Wednesday F: COVID-19 NEWS– Moderna is eyeing a combination COVID-19/Influenza vaccination for the fall.  (Note- don’t bother- we aren’t going to take it).  Next, U.S. intelligence chief says that spy agencies are unclear as to when the China Virus first underwent transmission.  Meanwhile, Senator Rand Paul, R-KY, says that ‘if you want to get the American people to buy in on getting the vaccine, government should not lie to them’ (like that imbecile, the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci).   Elsewhere, IBM uncovers more attacks against China Virus vaccine supply chains.  No surprise there.  In other COVID-19 vaccine news, Denmark has permanently halted the use of AstraZeneca’s vaccine following reports of blood clots showing up in patients in that country.  Next, the NFL says that players and staff MUST get the coronavirus vaccines if they want to play or to work within the National Football League.  We say, “F**k them.”  Finally, GOP lawmakers push back on the ongoing push for COVID-19 passports.  (Note- a poll says that more than 50-percent of Republicans are NOT going to get the vaccines).
  77. 2021 Wednesday G: WASHINGTON, D.C. STATEHOOD– a recent poll says that of all 50 states and Washington, D.C., the latter is viewed as the absolute worst place to live and work.  Speaking of statehood, 22 Republican state attorney-generals are suing the Biden administration saying that statehood for the nation’s capital is unconstitutional which it is.  The nation’s capital was meant to be an independent federal district.  Perhaps they should return the real estate given to the district by the surrounding states back to the donors.  There.  Problem solved.  They can pay taxes to the states.  Ah, well, the House Oversight Committee is going to vote on a bill- H.R. 51- authorizing D.C. statehood later in the week.  Still, Democrats are facing cries of “HYPOCRISY” over the court-packing scheme seeing as how they were against it before they were for it. 
  78. 2021 Wednesday H: JOE BIDEN NEWS I– The ‘Biden administration’ is pushing to protect the nation’s power grid as hacking efforts intensify.  Next, House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi, she of the pendulous breasts that droop down past her waistline, has invited bewildered old Joe Biden to address a joint session of Congress on April 28.  This we got to see!   Meanwhile, critics lambasting Joe Biden’s SCOTUS commission on packing the court could favor adding additional left-wing justices to an already inept court thanks to the commission being one-sided.  (Note- we suspected this from the start).  Next, Joe Biden says that ALL U.S. troops will be out of Afghanistan, not by May 1, 2021, as President Donald J. Trump planned but on the 20th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001: September 11, 2021.[xv]  However, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns is pushing back on this announcement.[xvi]
  79. 2021 Wednesday I: CRIME AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE NEWS– The judge in the Derek Chauvin murder trial today refused a motion to dismiss the case.  Meanwhile, Brooklyn Center, Minnesota, Police Officer Kim Potter was arrested today and charged with second degree manslaughter in the accidental shooting death of thug Duante Wright.  Police in the city also had to put barricades around her family’s home seeing as how rioting has been ongoing there now for three days.  Last night, law enforcement arrested another 60 people rioting and running amok in the streets.  We say, “Shoot them and re-establish law and order in your city.”   In other criminal justice news, Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff died in federal prison at age 83.  In doing so, he was able to beat serving his 150-year prison sentence.  C’ est la vie.  Finally, as the trial of Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin continues, a defense expert testifies that Mr. Floyd did not die from Officer Chauvin’s actions but from a heart rhythm problem.  (Interesting note- a report says that NYPD officers stood by as four MS-13 gangbangers loaded a dead body into the trunk of their vehicle).
  80. 2021 Wednesday J: POLITICAL NEWS I– Congresswoman Ashley Hinson, R-IA 1st congressional district, has put forth a Trump-like bill, the “Red Tape Reduction Act,” a bill that would seek to cut regulations and rules.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Julia Letlow, R-LA 5th congressional district, put her hand on the Holy Bible today and took the oath of office as the newest member of the U.S. House of Representatives.  Next, Governor Ron DeSantis, R-FL, is continuing with Florida’s lawsuit against the Joe Biden regime over its crazy Immigrations and Customs Enforcement policies.  Illegal aliens MUST GO!  Speaking of the border, “Kooky Kamala” Harris is supposed to visit Mexico and Guatemala within the next ‘several weeks.’  Uh, okay, we have a CATASTROPHE on our southern border there, phony VP.  Finally, Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer plans to move forward with the Biden administration’s infrastructure bill early next week, the one that will cost more than $2 trillion, money mostly borrowed from communist China.  (Note- Congressman Steve Scalise, R-LA 1st congressional district, says that “Cryin’ Chuck” is not reaching out to Republican lawmakers for their input.  Say what?)
  81. 2021 Wednesday K: POLITICAL NEWS II– The Capitol Hill officer who shot and killed 35-year-old Ashli Babbitt during the January 06, 2021, FALSE FLAG operation, aka the infamous Capitol Hill Riots- of that ill-fated day will face NO charges whatsoever even though film makes it clear there was no reason for such an incident to have occurred.  Good to have friends in high places, folks.  Next, major U.S. corporations are all banding together to thwart the new voting laws seeking to infuse more honesty and openness into the laws so that what happened on November 03, 2020, does not occur again; namely, stealing a presidential election and giving it to a horrible candidate, creepy old Joe Biden.  Elsewhere, several GOP senators are seeking to strip Major League Baseball of its anti-trust protections.  Kick MLB to the curb.
  82. 2021 Wednesday L: POLITICAL NEWS III– The Biden administration is going to honor the terms of the deal made by President Donald J. Trump and the United Arab Emirates.  The sale of advanced U.S. warplanes will proceed.   Next, the U.S. Senate votes 53-45 to confirm Gary Gensler as the next head of Securities and Exchange Commission.  Meanwhile, Congressman Andy Biggs, R-AZ 5th congressional district, says that Joe Biden is swiftly moving illegal aliens apprehended along the southern border and is moving them into the heartland of the country.  There is NO vetting, NO testing for diseases, NO background checks for criminal activity, and thus Old Joe is fueling the demise for the country at a later date.
  83. 2021 Wednesday M: POLITICAL NEWS IV– The Democrats are preparing to release a new plan with which to expand the U.S. Supreme Court from nine seats to 13.  This is indeed ‘packing the courts,’ something Joe Biden swore upon the head of Satan (just kidding) he would NEVER do.  Congressman Ted Budd, R-NC 13th congressional district, says a constitutional amendment is required with which to fix the number of justices at nine.  Meanwhile, Congressman Buddy Carter, R-GA 1st congressional district, says that ‘Major League Baseball is punishing the people it claims to be helping.’  Next, the Dems have another plan, one into which they will pour another $50 billion to eradicate student loan debt.  This will wipe out the debt for 36 million of our fellow Americans.  Good.  Elsewhere, former President George W. Bush laments that he did not pass comprehensive immigration reform when HE was president.  How about enforcing the laws? 
  84. 2021 Wednesday N: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– “Bachelor” star Colton Underwood comes as gay.  Big whoop.  Next, Mick Jagger and Dave Grohl are working on an anthem for the COVID-19 era.  Meanwhile, Parler says that Amazon is throwing mud at them by claiming they are doing everything they can to cover up ownership.   Speaking of Amazon, they are pledging to promote more women and blacks.  Elsewhere, the state of Arizona is revamping sex-ed rules in the wake of all the LGBTQIA+ bulls**t being forced down the throats of American students.
  85. 2021 Wednesday O: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II–  We learn that $174 billion of the infrastructure bill proposed by President Joe Biden is going to the Chinese.  We need them to mine and manufacture rare earth minerals so we can drive electric cars.  Good going, Joe.  Next, Stephen Miller says that “America First Legal” is aiding the states in suing the Biden administration.  Moving on, a new department of the U.S. Treasury will oversee COVID-19 relief.  Boy, talk about a major slush fund for the Left!   Elsewhere, Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, tells Newsmax that IF Trump runs in 2024, he will be the nominee.   Next, Joe Biden- never one to pander- is appointing a liaison to the American Asian-Pacific Islanders community seeing as how black Democrats are attacking Asian Democrats.  Someone has to help make nice.  Erika Moritsugu will get the gig.  Finally, experts say (and they are right) that California is not prepared for another catastrophic fire season.  True, absolutely true, thanks to liberal mismanagement and inattention.
  86. 2021 Wednesday P: FOREIGN NEWS / OVERSEAS NEWS– the United States and Germany are warning Russia to pull back from Ukraine’s borders.  The Biden administration plans to slap new sanctions atop Vladimir Putin and the Russian government.  Let’s see what that does.  Meanwhile, experts say that thanks to U.S. stupidity, we have built the Chi-Com military for them via the lopsided trade disparities as well as permitting to steal everything they can get their thieving hands on.  Wow.
  87. 2021 Wednesday Q: LOTTERY RESULTS–  First, here are the numbers for the Super Lotto Draw #3551: 07, 10, 20, 28, 33, and Mega 15.  Out of 114,696 winning tickets, the highest winners were FOUR people who had FIVE numbers BUT NO Mega for a prize of $10,170 apiece.  The winning tickets were sold at (1) Foremost Liquor, South Pasadena, CA 91030 (2) United Oil, Ontario, CA 91761 (3) Cig Zone, Indio, CA 92201 and (4) Bonfare Market, San Jose, CA 95135.   Next, here are the numbers for the Powerball Draw #837: 13, 30, 33, 45, 61, and Power 14.  Out of 46,599 winning tickets in California, the highest winners were FIVE people who had FOUR numbers plus the Powerball $5,142 apiece.

  89. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths– Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 565,609 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 200,944 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FIFTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 449 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.              
  90. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 9,149,794 confirmed cases, 89,675 confirmed deaths, and 8,897,475 confirmed recoveries.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,919,467 confirmed cases, 73,656 confirmed deaths, and 5,798,702 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 243,299 confirmed cases, 1,390 confirmed deaths, and 237,218 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,471,754 confirmed cases, 12,589 confirmed deaths, and 1,433,781 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., North Dakota: they have 240,109 confirmed cases, 2,251 confirmed deaths, and 237,715 confirmed recoveries.[xix]

The price of RHODIUM is $19,200.00 per troy oz., +0.00 (+0.00%).  The price of NEODYMIUM is $1,110,000.00 per CNY/T, -50,000.00 (-4.31%).  The price of ALUMINUM is $3,299.00 per USD/T, +63.00 (+1.95%). The price of ZINC is $4,483.00 per USD/T., +21.50 (+0.48%).   The price of COCOA is $2,583.00 per USD/T, 0.00 (0.00%).  The price of COFFEE is $223.60 per USD/T, -1.45 (-0.64%).  The price of LUMBER is $889.00 USD 1,000 board feet +5.30 (+0.60%).[xxii]   Currently, Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000025.  As for Chi-Com money, one-dollar U.S. = 6.38 Chinese yuan.  Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.92 euros, in Mexican pesos equals 19.96, and in Russian rubles, one dollar equals 80.12 of theirs.    In Kyrgyzstani Som, one greenback equals 84.76 and in Lao Kip, a buck equals 11,835.90 and in Latvian Lats, one dollar equals 0.60 of theirs.[xxiii]       
  93. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors– Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $5.719 per gallon, $4.016 in Florida, $5.238 in Hawaii, and $4.654 in Washington state.[xxiv]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Iowa- $3.796.  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 16th LOWEST gasoline price in the world- Yemen: $2.137 per U.S. Gallon.[xxv] Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,384,833,492,283 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[xxvi]  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 Netherlands the next largest holder of U.S. debt is Poland.  This nation holds $51,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).  
  94. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Governor Greg Abbott is hammering out agreements with various Mexican state governors to stop the flow of the Biden-Harris illegals into the Lone Star State.  If the Mexican governors fail to provide security along their shared borders, every single vehicle crossing the border heading north will be stopped and inspected.  Billions of dollars of revenues will be lost which hopefully will propel the governors to doing the right thing.  IF the Biden-Harris regime won’t do the job, Texas will.  Hopefully, Arizona and New Mexico will follow suit leaving California to bear the brunt of illegal aliens alone. Okay, the cost of caring for the Biden-Harris illegals since January 01, 2022, is a shocking $662,179,656.  The cost of caring for them since these two losers took charge is $42,408,255,399.  Wow.  The number of illegals who have crossed the border since January 01, 2022, is in our estimation 1,057,658.  Finally, the conservative low estimate of illegals in the country is 46,479,144. We believe the number of illegals is closer to 85-to-100 million which is a detestable number.  Round ‘em up, imprison them, and then deport them after they work off their transgressions. (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).
  95. 2022 Thursday G: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Finland and Sweden are seeking fast-track membership in NATO which has led the tottering Putin regime in Russia to threaten a build-up of its nuclear forces if the two neutral nations become the newest members of NATO.  In more unwelcome news for Russia, however, Ukraine sank Russia’s Black Sea flagship- the Moskva– with a land-to-sea missile.  Belching smoke and flames, the vessel went to the bottom with sailors leaping into the sea.  In an attempt to cover up the disaster, Moscow claimed sailors smoking cigarettes somehow sank the ship- which, if true- is worse than the ship being sunk via a missile.  What can go wrong for the Putin regime next?  We suspect that the military and intelligence leadership is NOT going to permit much more of these disasters to continue.  President Putin had better keep his back to the wall at all times; otherwise, someone is going to come up behind him and cap him.  It’s what Russians do.  (Note- this is so reminiscent of the Winter War of 1939- the Finns beat the living crap out of the Russians).
  96. 2022 Thursday H: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $53.13 (2) AstraZeneca: $69.05 (3) Novavax: $58.55 (4) Merck & Company: $86.91 (5) Johnson & Johnson: $179.89  (6) BioNTech: $175.29 (7) Moderna: $165.49.

  99. 2022 Thursday I: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $28.48 (2) Beyond Meat: $43.01  (3) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $67.88.

  101. 2022 Thursday K: Joe Biden Regime News I- Information continues to arise linking the FBI not only to the events of January 06, 2021, but to the ‘plot’ to kidnap one of America’s absolute worst governors, Gretchen “Gravel Gertie” Whitmer, DS-MI.  Last week, virtually everyone charged by the feds was either acquitted or had a mistrial which blows the government’s case out of the water.  Julie Kelly reports that regarding January 06, 2021, i.e., the INSURRECTION, there were more than 1,000 FBI agents, informants, and/or stooges in the crowd inciting the ensuing mayhem.  This is disturbing and the FBI must undergo a massive purification to remove the leftist losers causing inner rot within the once proud organization.  Our advice to anyone faced with an interview with the FBI: ask for a lawyer and then go silent.  Period.   Remember: the few remaining good apples are tainted by the multitudes of bad ones.
  102. 2022 Thursday L: Joe Biden Regime News II- Apparently, the Biden White House is struggling with how much information to provide the Ukrainians.   Next, the Biden White House indicts a Russian legislator and two aides operating in the U.S. whom they claim are running an anti-Ukrainian propaganda site in the U.S.  Next, Joe Biden’s CIA Director William Burns says, ‘don’t count out Russia using nukes in Ukraine.’  Good to know.   Next, the Biden regime is preparing a crackdown on those seeking to evade regime-imposed sanctions on Russia.  Good to know, too.
  103. 2022 Thursday M: Political News I- A new poll says that a large majority of Americans do not believe gun control will stop mass shootings.   Next, BIG DEMOCRAT DONOR from Los Angeles, California, the disgusting Ed Buck- longtime close associate of Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Obamas– has received 30 years for his crack-induced overdose deaths of young black men he enticed into his home to have sex with him.  Good riddance to a POS.   Another close friend of the Clintons- attorney Michael Sussman- watched his request for his Russia-collusion scam case to be dropped- swatted aside.  The Durham investigation is going to go after this scumbag on the ladder up to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
  104. 2022 Thursday N: Pro-Death Movement-Abortion News- Pro-Death proponents in Florida are going insane what with “America’s Governor” Ron DeSantis signing into law a bill banning ALL abortions after 15 weeks.  Whatever happened to birth control, i.e., ‘the pill?’  It used to be everyone sought to prevent pregnancy rather than to murder the outcome of a pregnancy.  Something is wrong in a country when it murders its unborn and seeks to replace the mass genocide of its young people with illegal aliens.  (Note- I am so glad I now live abroad.  Israel values ALL life, not just those that are ‘convenient’).
  105. 2022 Thursday O: Big Tech News- Elon Musk has put up a $43 billion bid with which to buy Twitter and put it back on the path towards FREE SPEECH.  Of course, the left in America and around the world is going bonkers.  Who knows?  Maybe Elon will launch a hostile takeover of Meta-Facebook.  Now that would be something.  Time to round up all these tech moguls and send them to Devil’s Island for all the harm they’ve caused the world.
  106. 2022 Thursday P: Friends, we understand that the left can say whatever they want about whomever they want.  However, they persecute us for making light of all manner of things, lampooning bigwig politicians, or criticizing drastic social changes.   Well, we will do our best to clean things up and put our critics at ease.  What the hell.

91. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, APRIL 01, 2022

2021 Thursday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I- A new report suggests that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov’s $4 million book on the AMAZING job he did with the ‘Chi-Vi’ (yeah, right) was written and edited by the Lov Gov’s staffers. We wonder, did the Gropin’ Gov share any of his money with them?

  29. 1918 Monday: With Russia embroiled in the civil war between the Reds and the Whites, the Germans continue pummeling them for concessions on all manner of things.  Today, they give Moscow an ultimatum as parts of the new Soviet Union breaks apart.  Give Finland their freedom or we will continue operations against you.  The Kaiser’s Germany and the Finns have a history.

  39. 1941 Tuesday: Pro-German Rashid Ali al-Ghailani grabs power in Iraq.  Angry at their occupation by the Brits, the “Golden Square,” the movement to oust the British gets underway.  At first, the British would be surprised and overrun but within a few days would be able to recover and strike back.  Meanwhile, in North Africa, following their costly defeat at El Agheila, the British are falling back in headlong retreat across the coastal road.  Is the road for the Axis to Egypt WIDE OPEN?  Meanwhile, German troops are moving towards the Yugoslav border.  They have a date with the Yugoslav people…
  40. 1942 Wednesday: The Japanese army continues the conquest of Burma, pushing the British back in one concentrated assault after another.  Meanwhile, in the Mediterranean Sea theater, the Luftwaffe continues smothering the island fortress of Malta with sortie after sortie of bombers, attacking ships, military targets, and civilian towns and cities.  Still, the people of Malta won’t submit to the Nazis and their Fascist Italian henchmen.
  41. 1943 Thursday: Craig “Stinkbug” Carrici was born in Pumpkin Center,[i] California, on this date; he is the founder of the AICP-END Blog.  Elsewhere, in the North African Theater of World War II, the British, the Americans, and the Free French and Free Poles continue pushing the Afrika Korps into an ever-shrinking corner of Tunisia.  As long as the Axis troops can continue the fight, they can keep Allied assets tied up there instead of being redeployed to other fronts.  Still, the end is coming and it’s coming soon.
  42. 1944 Saturday: John Barbata, future drummer of the Turtles[ii], the Jefferson Airplane[iii], the Jefferson Starship, and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young[iv] was born on this date in Passaic, New Jersey.   Elsewhere, during the air war over occupied Europe, a grave error occurs today as 50 B-24 bombers flew into Switzerland’s airspace and bombed the wrong target, killing at least 40 or more civilians.  Pilots shot down over Switzerland of all sides were typically interned there until the end of the war and the Swiss were not big fans of the Allies, the United States in particular.  This mistake did not help things between the two countries.
  43. 1945 Sunday: American forces launched the amphibious invasion of Okinawa during World War II.  This would prove to be one of the costliest fights of World War II and the catastrophic loss of life on both sides would press President Harry S.

Colonel “Gars Pierre” Langlais informs his command to cut the Thai auxiliaries loose.  No longer are they dependable.[ix]
  51. 1960 Friday: The United States launched TIROS-1, the nation’s first weather satellite on this date.
  52. 1961 Saturday: Evangelist Jim Bakker marries Tammy Faye.

Kennedy and then Lyndon Baines Johnson from January 21, 1961, until today.  His replacement- the 58th U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry H. Fowler- assumed office on this date.  Also, a Democrat, Secretary Fowler served under President Lyndon Baines Johnson from today until December 20, 1968.
  55. 1967 Saturday: The United States Department of Transportation begins operation.
  56. 1970 Wednesday: President Richard M. Nixon signs the Public Health Cigarette Smoking Act, an act that banned cigarette advertisements effective on January 1, 1971.  Meanwhile, for his part in the My Lai Massacre, the U.S. Army charged Captain Ernest Medina on this date.
  57. 1972 Saturday: The first Major League Baseball players’ strike began; it lasted 12 days.  Elsewhere, in Budokan, Tokyo, Japan, heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali wins a 15-round unanimous decision over his opponent, Mac Foster, to put his pro record to 35-1 while that of Foster went to 28-2.
  58. 1974 Monday: Ayatollah Khomeini calls for an Islamic Republic in Iran.  We call for the death of the ayatollah.  The guy is little more than a POS stuck to the bottom of one’s shoe.
  59. 1976 Thursday: Stephen Wozniak and Steve Jobs found Apple Computer.
  60. 1979 Sunday: Following the flight of the Shah, Iran proclaims themselves an “Islamic Republic.”  This horrible country would become the number one state sponsor od terrorism.
  61. 1982 Thursday: The U.S. transferred the Canal Zone to Panama.
  62. 1983 Friday: Tens of thousands of anti-nuclear demonstrators linked arms in a 14-mile human chain spanning three defense installations in rural England, including the Greenham Common U.S. Air Base.
  63. 1991 Monday: After five years of holding British citizen Roger Cooper hostage, the scumbag Islamist regime in Iran released him.  Meanwhile here in the United States, the Supreme Court ruled that attorneys could not bar jurors from serving due to their race.  Finally, with the ongoing collapse of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact disbanded. 
  64. 1992 Wednesday: The National Hockey League’s Players’ Association went on it’s first-ever strike, which lasted 10 days.  Elsewhere, the world’s 7 wealthiest nations agree on $24 billion aid for former U.S.S.R.
  65. 1998 Wednesday: Paula Jones’ sexual harassment suit against President Bill Clinton is thrown out of court.
  66. 2000 Saturday: The 2000 United States Census is underway as of today.
  67. 2001 Sunday: George W. Bush has not been in office long when his first international crisis occurs as a U.S. intelligence-gathering aircraft flying in international waters is intercepted and rammed by a Chi-Com fighter jet.  The U.S. plane is seriously damaged and is forced down in Chi-Com territory while the PRC warplane goes down in the ocean and sinks.  The Chi-Coms will keep our people prisoner and will take the spy plane apart one screw at a time.
  68. 2002 Monday: Palestinians continue causing problems for the Israelis and fighting between terrorists and Israeli Defense Forces continues.  Gradually, Israeli troops are pushing the rabid jihadists towards the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem where the human garbage will seek refuge from an Israeli ass-whooping.  
  69. 2003 Tuesday: American troops entered a hospital in Nasiriyah, Iraq, and rescued Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch, who had been held prisoner since jihadists ambushed her supply column on March 23.
  70. 2004 Thursday: Suffering from the effects of kidney and liver disease, Paul Atkinson—guitarist with the British rock band, the Zombies[x]—loses his fight with his maladies and dies in a hospital in Santa Monica, California; he was 58-years-old.
  71. 2005 Friday: Hamas and Islamic Jihad have announced that they are considering- in principle- of joining the Palestine Liberation Organization.
  72. 2006 Saturday: White House Press Secretary Tony Snow announces that the administration is concerned over news of a potential toppling of the Lebanese government  by a cabal of Syria, Iran, and Hamas forces.  Of course, it appears that the Bush administration is searching for yet another opportunity to launch a new regime change war in the Middle East, ostensibly to help an ‘ally,’ Beirut.
  73. 2007 Sunday: Former United States Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson, Republican, throws his hat into the 2008 Presidential Election race. 
  74. 2008 Tuesday: While the Dalai Lama is visiting India, his hosts request that he not anger neighboring communist China.  India is unclear of its military abilities should the Chi-Coms begin launching attacks along their joint border.  
  75. 2009 Wednesday: In St. Petersburg, Russia, some anti-communist wag partially toppled a statue of Vladimir Lenin at the railway station with a bomb.  Police are seeking the suspect.   Meanwhile, the U.S. and Russia commence talks on a new Strategic Arms Limitations Treaty. 
  76. 2010 Thursday: Russian President Dmitry Medvedev- Vladimir Putin’s puppet- makes a surprise visit to Dagestan following a double suicide attack the day before that killed at least 12 people and wounded numerous others.  Meanwhile, former Alaskan Governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin gives a speech in Nevada to tens of thousands of people seeking to get Senator Harry Reid, D-NV, out of office.
  77. 2011 Friday: Off the coast of Greece, Crete suffers a 6.2-magnitude earthquake.  Elsewhere, across the Near and Middle East, the Arab Spring continues as nations from the Persian Gulf to the end of North Africa at the Atlantic Ocean continue to see people running amok, trying to topple governments and murder leaders.  It’s akin to watching global insanity among members of the so-called ‘religion of peace,’ Islam.
  78. 2012 Sunday: In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood nominates Chairman Khairat El-Shater as a candidate for the May 2012 presidential elections.  Meanwhile, as the Syrian civil war continues to rage, Syrian military assets and artillery begin assaulting the city of Homs where a bunch of antigovernment and perhaps even ISIS thugs are holed up.  Wipe ‘em out, boys.
  79. 2013 Monday: In preparation for plans to step down in 2015, the president of Sudan Omar al-Bashar gives an order to release all political prisoners.  Elsewhere, in North Korea, at the annual convening of the People’s Supreme Assembly, their version of a parliament, begins after Kim Jong Un finished leveling threats of thermonuclear war against BOTH South Korea and the United States.  Fine people do something about it, President Barack Hussein Obama.
  80. 2014 Tuesday:  Fifty-eight miles north of the Chilean city of Iquique, an earthquake of 8.2 magnitude hits the area, stunning the region.  An earlier earthquake that hit on March 16 was 6.2-magnitude on the Richter scale; scientists predict an even bigger one soon.  Meanwhile, thanks to Russian land-grabs in the Crimea, NATO cancels all civil and military cooperation with Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  We’re sure they’re upset.  Elsewhere, the death toll in the West African nation of Guinea from its ongoing Ebola virus outbreak is now at 80 dead with possibly dozens sickened.
  81. 2015 Wednesday: Following problems with reaching a self-imposed reduction in water usage in drought-stricken California, Democrat Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown mandates a 25-percent reduction under threat of legal punishment to force lower usage of the precious resource.  Meanwhile, the governor-fearful of rising sea levels, continues to allow millions of acre-feet of water to flow out into the Pacific Ocean to protect the Delta smelt.  Impeach the bastard!  Elsewhere, famed British guitarist Dave Ball who played with Procol Harum died on this date in his native England; he was 65 years-old.
  82. 2016 Friday: At the Oracle Arena in Oakland, California, the Golden State Warriors’ NBA record for home game wins ends as the Boston Celtics beat them, 109-106; it was the team’s first loss at home since January 2015.  Elsewhere, as world leaders convene in Washington, D.C., at the annual Nuclear Security Summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un gives them something on which to chew: he fires off a couple of missiles from the east coast of his s***hole country and into the ocean.  “Notice me,” appears to be the message.
  83. 2017 Saturday: In Stockholm, Sweden, famed singer/songwriter Bob Dylan wins his Nobel Peace Prize for Literature in a private ceremony.  God bless you, Bob.   Meanwhile, the government of Communist China announces its plan to build a city three-times the size of New York City (using American money, of course, purloined from us via disastrous past trade ‘deals’) in Xlongan, a new area.  Three years later, they spread the Wuhan Flu to the rest of the world.  Thank you, China, thank you.
  84. 2018 Sunday: In the 37th NCAA Women’s Basketball Championship, a stunner of a game occurs as Notre Dame beats Mississippi State by a final of 61-58 what with ND forward Jessica Shepard scoring 19 points.  Elsewhere, combined U.S. and South Korean forces commence their annual military drills, codenamed “Foal Eagle” and “Key Resolve.”  Of course, North Korean strongman, Kim Jong Un, is unhappy with the drills.
  85. 2019 Monday: China announces new laws to take effect on May 01, 2019, to stop the production of fentanyl-related opiates.  Okay.  China is the number one provider of opiates to the United States, being the ‘unseen hand’ distributing harmful drugs to Americans and causing far too many to die from them.  Shame.  Elsewhere, we learn that Saudi ARAMCO is the most profitable company in the world what with $111.1 billion in the previous year.    
  86. 2020 Wednesday: China continues being a major problem for the rest of the globe as the Wuhan Flu continues wreaking havoc wherever it shows up- with the strange exception of China (or so they claim)- with total number of confirmed cases at or near 911,308 and total number of confirmed deaths at 45,497.  We now know, however, that China has concealed- intentionally- the number of confirmed cases and number of confirmed deaths within their country so who the heck can believe anything these totalitarians claim?  The U.S. number of confirmed cases is closing in at 213,000 with 47,000 or so confirmed deaths.  This is outrageous, yet in China, the infamous WET MARKETS are open once more so the populace can enjoy their bat, rat, cat, dog, monkey, snakes, lizards, insects, and other exotic and endangered animals on their dinner table.  Shame!  World beware of the Wuhan Boogie Woogie!
  87. 2021 Thursday: JOE BIDEN’S BORDER CATASTROPHE– A new poll shows that 59-percent of the GOP’s voters do not approve of more gun control laws.  Meanwhile, Senator Tom Cotton, R-AK, said today that ‘Joe Biden’s border crisis is WORSE that a crisis, it’s sheer insanity.’  We concur.  Even federal officials are nonplussed over the (lack of) Biden border plan with which to distribute illegal alien brats across the country.[xi]   Elsewhere, Congressmen John Katko, R-NY 24th congressional district, and Henry Cuellar, D-TX 28th congressional district, have authored a bipartisan bill with which to bring sanity back to the southern border.  Moving on, Representative Jodey Arrington, R-TX 19th congressional district, says that the LEFT puts the fear of God (well, in the case of Democrats- Satan) into Joe Biden which prevents him from owning up to HIS border crisis.
  88. 2021 Thursday A: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS– A recent report shows that the scumbag Iranians are increasing uranium enrichment in their underground lairs more than the law permits.  We say, “Nuke them!  Now!”  Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says his major regret is that the administration was unable to get North Korea to give up its nukes.  It is what it is, Mike.  Next, ahead of upcoming OPEC plus meetings, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia are discussing energy affordability but then, the U.S. says it’s going to minimize the number of U.S. military deployments to the Middle East to help the Saudis fight the Iranian-backed Houthi scum in Yemen.  Meanwhile, the Russians are moving armored and supply units via train towards the eastern Ukraine.  With muddled Old Joe Biden in office, WAR is coming soon.  We predicted this months ago.[xii]  Finally, a U.S. Air Force general warns that Russian activity off the coast of Alaska is increasing at a kinetic pace.  NOT GOOD.
  89. 2021 Thursday B: SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS / GUNS– Like always, the Democrats are pushing for more and more restrictions on firearms.  Good luck with that.  The FBI reports that the month of March 2021 saw the highest number of gun background checks in the U.S. ever what with 4.7 million new requests.  Wow.  Awesome.[xiii]   Speaking of guns, yesterday, we had yet another mass shooting under the Biden administration, this one in California in which a shooter killed four people including a 9-year-old kid.  Joe, WTF, dude?
  90. 2021 Thursday C: ECONOMIC NEWS– a recent report shows that factory activity is expanding at its highest pace since 1983.  People must be thinking President Donald J. Trump is coming back.  Meanwhile, the Biden administration allowed a Trump-era rule to lapse and this one was on the number of H-1B Visas handed out to foreign tech workers.  Americans trained to do these jobs can return to drawing unemployment checks because half of India is returning to the U.S.  Joe, again, WTF?  Elsewhere, last week, 719,000 new claims for unemployment insurance benefits were filed.  This is down yet again.  In other economic news, corporate tenants are looking to offload expensive office space now that millions of Americans can work from home.
  91. 2021 Thursday D: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS I– A new report suggests that New York Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo, aka the Love Gov, aka the Gropin’ Gov’s $4 million book on the AMAZING job he did with the ‘Chi-Vi’ (yeah, right) was written and edited by the Lov Gov’s staffers.  We wonder, did the Gropin’ Gov share any of his money with them?  Moving on, the U.S. Supreme Court gave the Federal Communications Commission the go-ahead to loosen rules on media companies ownership.  Meanwhile, Colorado is becoming the latest state to weigh in on its sports teams having Native American mascots.  Okay.  Elsewhere, U.S. airlines passengers fell by 60-percent in 2020 (thanks to the Chi-Coms) while gun seizures in the United States are at an all-time high.  Finally, American Jews report a major spike in Antisemitism, especially online.  
  92. 2021 Thursday E: BIDEN ADMINISTRATION NEWS I– Joe Biden condemns the Texas Rangers baseball team using the harshest language (for him) over their opening the ballpark in Arlington, Texas, to FULL CAPACITY!  Awesome.  Life is returning to normal in civilized places.  Next, the Biden infrastructure plan is to RAISE corporate taxes which has led Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell to label it a ‘liberal wish list.’  What with growing pushback across the country to this ignorant ‘plan,’ Joe Biden is demanding his Cabinet ‘go out and begin promoting the $2 trillion give-away to liberal causes.’[xiv]  Finally, for some reason known only to God Almighty, Joe Biden is sending $125 million to the frigging Palestinians.  WTF?  (Note- the Senate GOP is BEGGING Joe Biden to keep jobs in America, not send them overseas which always seems to be Joe’s way).
  93. 2021 Thursday F: COVID-19 NEWS– Pfizer reports that after six months, it’s shots for the coronavirus remain 91-percent effective.  As long as it’s not that skin-peeling, Johnson & Johnson crap, we’re good.  Meanwhile, Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA 14th congressional district, presented a new bill, “The Fire Fauci Act.”  Everyone is sick of the AMAZING Dr. “Tiny Tony” Fauci.  This man has lied and spread so much misinformation that it’s high time this guy was booted out on his butt.  He’s a bum.  
  94. 2021 Thursday G: POLITICAL CORRECTNESS/WOKE NEWS/MORON NEWS– Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia is firing back at befuddled Old Joe Biden’s demand that the Major League Baseball All-Star Game be pulled from Atlanta, due to the new Voting Rights Bill in the Peach State.  ‘Ridiculous,’ says the man sitting in overweight Stacey Abrams’ seat (yeah, right, LOL).  Next, Bud Light pulled a fast one on the American people (after all, it’s April Fool’s Day) by showing photos of its new pizza-flavored seltzer.  Yuck (but of course, young people are stupid and like all manner of stupid stuff).   Moving on, incredibly unattractive and terribly stupid Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka Baby Evita, aka AOC, aka “The Fly,” aka Sandy Cortez (her birth name) is upping the ante on Joe Biden’s infrastructure bill.[xv]  She wants a $10 trillion infrastructure bill.  What, is this f***ing monopoly money?  Finally, the Star Wars franchise is going to have new trans/nonbinary characters.  Ah, aren’t you all WOKE?  Dumb asses.
  95. 2021 Thursday H: FOREIGN NEWS/OVERSEAS NEWS II– Iran and other world powers are discussing the re-entry of the United States into the Iran Nuclear Deal, aka the JCPOA.  Wow.  Thanks, Joe.  Elsewhere, BIG TECH guy Tim Cook blasts Georgia for its new voting rights law while remaining entirely silent on Uighur concentration camps in Xinjiang Province.  That’s a BIG CORPORATE head for you, sucking up to Beijing while blasting fellow Americans.   Speaking of the Chi-Coms, seven pro-democracy advocates in Hong Kong have just been convicted in a ‘Chi-Com court’ for daring to defend the deal the Chi-Coms promised to observe- a 50-year-transition.  That’s communists for you.  Next, last night Tucker Carlson reported on Canada’s INTERNMENT HOTELS where all Canadian citizens exiting airplanes in that country are whisked off to internment centers where they are held for three days- or until repeated COVID-19 tests clear them (still, after three days)- before being released.  Even worse, the internees pay for their own room and board which according to Mr. Carlson sees little food and even less water provided to the inmates.  Even worse, the doors don’t lock and there have been reports of sexual assaults occurring in the middle of the night.  This is Canada? 
  96. 2021 Thursday I: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS II–  Angry Los Angeles County residents are suing the L.A. County Teachers’ Union as well as the Los Angeles Unified School District for NOT holding in-person classes for the kids.  (Note- we look forward to the disciplinary problems the teachers are going to face when schools reopen.  Teachers are going to get their asses beat and even murdered by out-of-control sociopathic students.  Serves them right).  Next, Lara Trump says, ‘it’s outrageous’ that her interview with her father-in-law was banned from Facebook and Instagram.  Do what we did- we closed our social media accounts with the exception of Lilah’s Twitter account.  Elsewhere, Governor Greg Gianforte, R-MT, signed a bill into law in his state that prohibits SANCTUARY CITIES and demands that ALL law enforcement cooperate with federal law enforcement officers and agencies.  Finally, a report on the FALSE FLAG OPERATION of January 06, 2021- the Capitol Hill Riots, the ones in which, Antifa and Black Lives Matter human fecal matter infiltrated peaceful Trump supporters and carried out an incursion into the Capitol says that the majority of the blame falls on D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser’s ‘police forces being unprepared.’  There you go.

Today in History, April 01, 2021, at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-The Elemental News of the Day:


[i] Stinkbug would always say he was born in Oildale, California, which is 10 miles or so north of Pumpkin Center because he was embarrassed to tell people he was born in Pumpkin Center because people would laugh.  Now, he says he doesn’t give a f*** what anyone says.  Happy birthday, Stinky!

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

[iii] We promoted the music of the Jefferson Airplane, the Jefferson Starship, Starship, and of the various bands’ members beginning on Tuesday, 05-April-2011 through Sunday, 22-May-2011.  Please look for them and enjoy.

[iv] 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.

[v] We promoted the music of the Small Faces, Faces, and a bunch more interconnected bands beginning on Tuesday, 22-April-2014 through Tuesday, 01-July-2014.  We encourage everyone to search out the music of the various bands in this collection so you can add them to your growing music collection.

[vi] See previous.

[vii] We look forward to doing the music of Steely Dan at some point within the next 10-15 years.  Please stay with us.

[viii] We hope to promote the music of this exciting professional band, Toto, at some point in the future.

[ix] Our main reference for the epic battle at Dien Bien Phu is “The Last Valley” by Martin Windrow, 2004, Da Capo Press.  Please seek this amazing historical work out for a concise look at the battle that ended French control of French Indochina and the birth of Vietnam.

[x] We promoted the music of the Zombies, Argent, Rod Argent, and Colin Blunstone beginning on Monday, 28-October-2019 through Sunday, 05-January-2020.  Please, check them out.

[xi] Chef Lilah Paulikovich in Hawaii reports that the first planeload of illegal alien minors arrived at Honolulu’s airport the other day.  In many places, foster care children are getting booted onto the streets so illegal alien snots can take their place.  Folks, what the Democrats are doing with illegal aliens is the same thing they did with black slaves in the Old South prior to the Civil War.  The Democrats are always on the wrong side of history, fighting to protect the evil institution of slavery, in this case, the economic low-wage slavery of illegal aliens.

[xii] Last year we predicted an alliance of communist China, Russia, Iran, and probably some lesser members such as Venezuela, Cuba, North Korea, and others and that they would launch various actions in their ‘neck of the woods’ because with Joe Biden in the White House, folks, there isn’t going to be a better time to launch attacks around the world, rather like the Axis during World War II.  It’s coming. 

[xiii] Virtually everyone- and we mean everyone- here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM has gone out- with family members- and added guns, accessories, and ammunition like there’s no tomorrow.  F*** the Democrats.

[xiv] Yet, “Cocaine Mitch” is praising Joe Biden while slamming his administration.  That’s the way, Mitch, that’s the way to play BOTH SIDES of the fence. 

[xv] House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that ‘Joe Biden’s absurd $2 trillion ‘infrastructure bill’ is no joke.  We have to stop this crap.

  74. 2021 Monday B: POLITICAL NEWS– Congressman Jody Hice, R-GA 10th congressional district received an endorsement from President Donald J. Trump as he runs to unseat RINO Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, an extremely corrupt individual who colluded with Governor Brian Kemp and political hack Stacey Abrams to throw the 2020 Presidential Election to stumbling, bumbling old Joe Biden in the Peach State.  Even more embarrassing for Mr. Raffensperger is the fact that HIS county- Fulton County- banned him from serving as a delegate in any upcoming elections.  Ouch.  Congressman Hice thanks President Trump saying his endorsement has led to an overwhelming response in support.  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump says that Senator “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell ‘is hanging by a thread in the upcoming battle to end the Senate filibuster rule.’  (Note- we also learn that dark money is funding efforts to end the filibuster rule).

  77. 2021 Monday E: MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRES AND OTHER CRIME NEWS– A Chinese American group condemns, we repeat, condemns CRITICAL RACE THEORY as being the new form of Maoism.  How soon do we see Red Guards going door to door in the streets?  Instead of lamenting the dead in the Atlanta killings, the Democrats are using the dead to stir their evil-smelling pot of fecal matter to continue their race-baiting ways as well as to steal guns from the American people.  Speaking of the Massage Parlor Massacres, the feds say there is “NO EVIDENCE that the shooter’s crimes were racially motivated thus no federal hate crimes charges can be filed against the sex addict shooter.’  This of course drives all liberals insane.  Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy, RINO, says that the politization of the crimes is a ‘calculation’ on the part of the Democrats.   Speaking of crime, the judge in the Derek Chauvin trial has seated the 14th and final juror in the upcoming trial.

Bush political advisor Karl Rove is planning on holding a fund-raiser for politically dead man-walking Congressman Adam Kinzinger, RINO-IL 16th congressional district.  That’s Karl Rove for you.  The guy is probably thinking he’s going to trot out Jeb Bush for another go in 2024.  One thing we can guarantee you, the era of voting for the lesser of two evils– meaning voting for a RINO instead of a Democrat has ended. If we’re going to go socialist, then we’re going to go socialist so what difference does it make if it’s next year or in three years or whatever?  NO MORE RINOs.  Elsewhere, Joe Biden’s national security adviser says it wasn’t a mistake to call Vladimir Putin a ‘killer.’  We shall see.  Meanwhile, the battle of mail-in ballots is raging in the Florida statehouse.  We don’t want mail-in ballots.   Next, the push to make the federal district of Washington, D.C., is beginning in the U.S. Senate.  Washington, D.C. was NEVER meant to be a state.   Finally, accusers of Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo claim the Lov Gov is interfering in the harassment probe into his scandalous activities and actions.  The man is a groper.
  87. 2021 Monday N: CRIME NEWS– In Boulder, Colorado, a lone gunman carrying a rifle shot and killed 10 people- including a law enforcement office- at a King Soopers Grocery Store.  The shooting began around 2:30 P.M. and within minutes, a line of emergency vehicles and first responders ringed the store.  Law enforcement then went in and subdued the scumbag.  He’s in custody.  Elsewhere, the U.S. Department of Justice has announced that it is considering hitting the Oath Keepers with SEDITION charges for their part in the January 06, 2021, Capitol Hill Riots.  The question is, WILL the Justice Department file similar charges against Antifa and Black Lives Matter as both groups infiltrated Trump supporters and engineered one of the largest FALSE FLAG operations in modern U.S. history.   
  88. 2021 Monday O: In other crazy news, RINO Bill Kristol, one of the all-time great phonies is supporting making Washington, D.C., a state while also advocating the invasion of Cuba and making that one a state, too.  This worthless phony has never seen a Third World War for which he didn’t advocate, and NO one should waste time listening to this dumb ass.  The time for jingoism ended when at the end of the Mexican-American War, the U.S. didn’t absorb the land between our southern border all the way down to Columbia just as after the Spanish-American War, we didn’t keep Cuba, too.  Next thing you know, Bill Kristol is going to want to make Afghanistan a U.S. commonwealth or at least a territory.
  89. 2022 Tuesday: Stick around…

77. TODAY IN HISTORY—FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 2022

1946 Monday: At the Nuremburg War Crimes Trials, former Luftwaffe Chief Hermann Goering is still in the witness dock. He will not accept fault for his crimes and defends the actions that he and his fellow Nazis took during the war. He’s a tough nut to crack. Goering, however, knows the score- he knows he’s destined for the hangman’s noose unless a miracle happens.

Bush, PLEASE- don’t do this.  We beg you.  Meanwhile, the foreign ministry in Iraq labels President Bush a ‘war criminal’ before the war is even under way.
  70. 2004 Thursday: Howard Dean announces he is going to form a far-left organization of people of like mind, the progressive Democracy for America group.  This guy’s a nut.   Meanwhile, the U.S. House of Representatives votes to double the bounty atop the head of wanted international terrorist, Osama bin Laden.  Find the POS and kill him.

Security Council vote just days before authorizing any naval force encountering pirates off the coast of East Africa to engage, a U.S. Naval squadron encounters Somali pirates and lights them up killing at least 1, wounding others, and taking 12 prisoners.  Excellent action.  Pirates must be eliminated from the high seas.  Elsewhere, Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine are fighting one another as they try to form a unified cabinet.
  73. 2007 Sunday: The war in Iraq continues killing people and destroying property.  A bomb goes off in Baghdad killing at least 11 people and wounding God knows how many others.   Elsewhere, French crime writer Cesare Battisti is arrested in Brazil.  Apparently, his home country’s courts in Italy convicted him in absentia of two murders back in the 1970s.  The Italian police were finally able to capture the rogue and extradite him back to Rome to face justice.
  74. 2008 Tuesday: You know it’s an election year when loads of limp-wristed sissies turn out to protest the fifth anniversary of the invasion of Iraq.  Look, we agree, NO one wanted George W. Bush to invade Iraq but the more we think about it, the more it appears that the Deep State aka the Military-Industrial-Political Complex egged him on to do it because industrialists and corporatists can only make money when bombs are dropping on Middle Eastern and other Third World targets and blood is being shed for oil.  When we don’t even get the oil, it’s even worse.  Fricking Dick Cheney!   Meanwhile, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, D-IL, does his best to distance himself from the insane comments made by his ‘former’ Reverend Jeremiah “Chickens Have Come Home to Roost” Wright in whose church Senator and Mrs. Obama sat for 20 years.

  76. 2010 Thursday: In anticipation of passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act- the PPACA, aka the ACA, aka Obamacare- the White House delays an overseas trip so President Barack Obama can sign the bill when it reaches his desk.  The Democrats expect to have the 216 votes with which to pass this monstrosity that will destroy the American healthcare system for generations to come, lead to lower-quality healthcare, and create ‘Death Panels’ with which government bureaucrats will eliminate what the Nazis called, “Useless eaters,” people who took more resources to stay alive than they gave back to society.  We hope it won’t pass.
  77. 2011 Friday: After the United States, Britain, and France authorized a No-Fly Zone over Libya, Libyan authorities announced that it would call for a ceasefire, which it immediately violated by killing 25 civilians in Misrata.   Meanwhile, the MESSENGER spacecraft goes into orbit around the planet Mercury, the closest planet to the Sun.
  78. 2012 Sunday: Armed rebels are running amok in Damascus, Syria.  Following a massive car bomb blowing up part of the city, raging gun battles break out in the streets leading to at least 27 dead and countless others injured.   Meanwhile, the U.S. military identifies the shooter of 16 Afghan civilians as U.S. Army Sgt. Robert Bales.  Currently, he is being held in solitary confinement at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas.  Afghan President Hamid Karzai is screeching about ‘multiple shooters killing the 16 which included 9 children’ but no evidence supporting those allegations is found.   Sgt. Bales enlisted in the military following the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and had served multiple tours fighting terrorists.
  79. 2013 Monday: At Kano, Nigeria, an explosion at a bus park claims the lives of 25 people and injures numerous others.  Meanwhile, an explosion erupts claiming the lives of 10 people and injures 20 others as a car bomb goes off in Mogadishu, Somalia.
  80. 2014 Tuesday: President Obama awards 24 Medals of Honor to veterans originally overlooked due to ethnic or racial bias.  Elsewhere, in the U.S., today’s Mega Millions multistate lottery drawing has two winning tickets; the $400 million jackpot is the third largest in the game’s history.  Elsewhere in Washington, D.C., the U.S. government shutters the Syrian Embassy and sends its diplomats home to Damascus.  Meanwhile, founding member of Blues Image[xi] as well as performer with other bands—drummer/percussionist Joe Lala—died on this date in his hometown of Tampa, Florida, at age 66 from lung cancer.  Finally, famed NBA coach Phil Jackson signs a five-year contract to become the president of the New York Knicks.  Oh, well.
  81. 2015 Wednesday: Although election consultants sent by President Barack Obama to help the opposition to Israeli leader, Benjamin Netanyahu, worked hard and spent millions to beat the prime minister, Netanyahu and his Likud Party retain power.  Mr. Netanyahu set out to form a new coalition government.   Elsewhere, violence breaks out in Frankfurt, Germany, during a massive protest against austerity measures proposed by Berlin. 
  82. 2016 Friday: American actor Joe Santos of Rockford Files fame dies at age 84.  Elsewhere, following imposition of new sanctions on North Korea, South Korea reports that its northern neighbor fired off two ballistic missiles into the Sea of Japan.   Meanwhile, European Union leaders are trying to bribe Turkey to do something about halting the ongoing flow of Muslim ‘refugees’ from the Middle East, Central Asia, and other parts of the region through their country and into Europe.  Something has got to give.
  83. 2017 Saturday: The founder of rock-and-roll—the great Chuck Berry[xii]—died from natural causes at the age of 90 in Wentzville, Missouri.  Meanwhile, as Iraqi military forces begin assaulting ISIS positions in western Mosul, tens of thousands of civilians try to flee through the battle lines.  The Iraqis have to sort out civilian from terrorist, it’s an onerous process but a necessary one.
  84. 2018 Sunday: In a ‘shock of shocks’ (yeah, right), Russian thug president and oligarch Vladimir Putin wins his fourth term with 76-percent of the vote.  Meanwhile, Sri Lanka ends the state of emergency it declared on March 06, 2018, after anti-Muslim riots got out of hand.
  85. 2019 Monday: According to the U.S. National Weather Service, historic, catastrophic flooding occurs as parts of Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and South Dakota find themselves battling floodwaters.  Of course, this is a SIGN of ‘Climate Change.’  Ooh, la-la. Elsewhere, New Zealand mourns the loss of people killed in the recent mosque shootings, urging the populace to show compassion for the Muslim population.   Meanwhile, in Utrecht, Netherlands, a jihadist seeking revenge for the mosque shootings in New Zealand opens fire on a train, killing three people and wounding others.  The police finally track the POS down and discover that he is a Turkish immigrant.   Bring out the old guillotine.   
  86. 2020 Wednesday: As of today, there are 214,894 confirmed cases of COVID-19, the “Wuhan Virus,” the one the Peoples’ Republic of China dumped on the world.  Currently, we have 8,732 confirmed deaths with 83,313 recoveries.  China continues leading the death toll with 3,122 followed by Italy with 2,978 and then Iran with 1,135 deaths.  After them, Spain acknowledges 623 deaths followed by France with 148, then South Korea with 84, the United Kingdom with 71, then the Netherlands with 58, and the U.S. with 55 deaths.  Meanwhile, after getting his butt clobbered in the previous day’s presidential primaries, Sen. Bernie Sanders announces the suspension of his presidential run.  Thus, Joe Biden is the de facto winner of the nomination which means, who will contest him at the convention or even before?  Will it be moronic Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York who seems to be on TV every flipping day acting as though he is the ‘shadow president’ or will it be Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama?  Possibly, since Democrats OWE Donald Trump at least three years, perhaps the president should postpone elections until November 2024?  On Wall Street, the DOW Jones Industrial Average closes at 19,898.92, a drop of 1,338.46 or -6.30%.  The S & P closes at 2,398.10, a drop of 131.09 or -5.18.  Finally, the NASDAQ closes at 6,989.84, a drop of 344.94 or -4.70%.
  87. 2021 Thursday: DAY 58 of the Biden Regime.   FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS UPDATE- North Korea calls nuclear talks with the ‘Joe Biden administration’ to be little more than a waste of their time.  Furthermore, they say that IF Joe Biden doesn’t dump the harsh speech, Joe Biden won’t be getting much sleep at night for the next four years.  They might consider speaking with ‘Joe Biden’ if he refrains from the hate speech against Kim Jong Un and discontinues the nasty rhetoric.  Otherwise, Biden can shut the hell up.   In answer, the Biden administration says it ‘will keep all options on the table when it comes to dealing with the North Koreans and will counter any threat the Kim regime poses to the rest of the Asia-Pacific Region.’ 
  88. 2021 Thursday A: FOREIGN/OVERSEAS NEWS UPDATE II: The Russians are not happy with Joe Biden.  First, they demand that Joe Biden apologize for calling Vladimir Putin a ‘killer,’ and then when Joe Biden’s administration remains mum, they call their ambassador in Washington, D.C., to return home.[xiii]  This is a slap to the face of Joe Biden personally and to the American people in general.  It’s a good thing that Joe Biden didn’t say that ‘if Putin and I were in high school, I’d take his scrawny little ass behind the gym and beat the hell out of him.’  IF Joe had said something like that, we might be getting nuked by now but of course, Joe Biden lacks the testosterone to do something as brazenly stupid as that.   Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the ‘back and forth between Biden and Putin is increasingly childish.’  Stop it.  Meanwhile, Moscow extends the house arrest for Alexei Navalny’s spokesperson, Kira Yarmysh.   
  89. 2021 Thursday B: FOREIGN NEWS UPDATE/OVERSEAS III: In Kabul, Afghanistan, a bus carrying Afghan workers along a road runs smack dab into a roadside bomb planted by practitioners of the religion of peace.  The resulting explosion claims the lives of four workers outright, injures another nine, and blows the bus to smithereens.  One must love the ‘religion of peace!’  Next, as the Joe Biden administration meets with the Chi-Coms in Alaska, reports are that Beijing is going to pressure U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken- a close friend of the Chi-Coms- to remove all Trump era sanctions imposed upon them.  This most likely is going to happen.  Elsewhere, the UAW is upset because an automobile Ford Motor Company promised to manufacture in Ohio is heading for Mexico instead.  Thank you, Biden administration, thank you dumb ass Richard Trumka for NOT putting labor squarely behind President Donald J. Trump.  More job losses to come.
  90. 2021 Thursday C: BORDER NEWS UPDATE I: The people of the United States are decrying ‘Joe Biden’s assault on the southern border.’  As our country reels from the massive invasion of Third World illegal aliens who are coming here to suck off government’s teats, none of these people will assimilate and many of them are males of military age.   House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says that ‘Joe Biden’s words and actions alone have created the border crisis.’  He also says that ‘when Joe Biden was running for president, he said he would open the borders and legalize millions of illegals so no one should be surprised now at what is happening along our border.’  (Note- we say it’s time to begin seeding the Rio Grande with alligator pups, to put in antipersonnel, antivehicle, and antiboat obstacles beginning on our side of the river and then lay in minefields, foo gas pits, punji stake pits, and whatever else we can to protect our borders from the tidal wave of illegals.  STOP THEM NOW!)
  91. 2021 Thursday D: BORDER NEWS UPDATE II: Senator John Kennedy, R-LA, says that ‘Joe Biden is going to try to redeploy border funding to other programs,’ like WOKE bulls**t.   Meanwhile, Mexico says it will help with the BORDER DISASTER if the United States provides aid with the Xi Jinping Bat Flu vaccine.   Elsewhere, it’s clear that DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is working on behalf of the illegal aliens and not the American people.[xiv]  Elections have consequences, folks.  The Biden administration is planning to legalize ALL DACA recipients as well as anyone who has worked in U.S. agricultural fields for as short a time as 180 days.  BUILD THE WALL AND DEPORT THEM ALL.  NOW.  It is better than hundreds of thousands of uneducated illegal aliens languishing in Joe Biden’s gulags.  Send them back NOW.  Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, demands that Secretary Mayorkas ‘change course now’ on the border.
  92. 2021 Thursday E: CHI-COM NEWS: House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-CA, is moving forward a bill that will strip compromised House Intelligence Committee member Eric “Farter-in-Chief” Swalwell, a man who had a lengthy sexual affair with a Chi-Com female intelligence agent, Christine Fang, aka Fang-Fang.  Leader McCarthy says there is NO way that Swalwell could get a security clearance in the private sector so he should not have one in the public sector.  Swalwell is a security risk and increasingly erratic House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi will do nothing about it.  (Note- it appears to me that her anti-Alzheimer’s drugs are not working very well- Goldie).
  93. 2021 Thursday F: POLLING AND ELECTIONS NEWS- a recent Rasmussen poll reports that 75-percent of the American people believe that VOTER ID is an essential tool with which to maintain fair and honest elections.  Why then won’t the Democrats demand safe and secure elections rather than seeking to enfranchise illegal aliens, felons, sixteen-year-olds, and others incapable of voting to vote?  This bull crap simply must stop.  NOW.   
  94. 2021 Thursday G: ATLANTA MASSAGE PARLOR MASSACRES and associated ideas- even though Robert Aaron Long- the person that shot and killed five Korean women, Latinos, and one white male says he didn’t do it because they are Asian does not gain much traction in the media.[xv]  We think his motive most likely was having watched the Grammys on Sunday night and seen all the whores and sluts prancing around that for a guy with a self-proclaimed sex addiction, he acted upon what he saw.  The Democrats continue wailing about the uptick in anti-Asian violence of which, we have still seen incredibly little and what we have seen other than Mr. Long is black folks attacking Asians.[xvi]  Still, the Asian-American community is screaming for support so congressional hearings looking into all the ‘anti-Asian violence’ are going to begin soon.  Dr. Alan Dershowitz, noted legal scholar, says the easy availability of firearms put the gun into the hands of Mr. Long.   How about we do something to help people with sex addictions in our highly sexualized society?   (Note- Joe Biden and Kooky Kamala Harris are going to visit Georgia soon and are going to blast guns- again.  STFU.  Goldie).   Anyhow, the Atlanta P.D. says the investigation into Mr. Long is FAR FROM OVER meaning they are seeking a racial angle.  Oh- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Trump’s to blame for the shootings.’[xvii]
  95. 2021 Thursday H: U.S. Senate News- the U.S. Senates confirms the pro-China William Burns by a unanimous vote to become the nation’s next Central Intelligence Agency director.  Wow.  Even worse, the U.S. Senate confirms California Attorney-General Xavier Becerra by a vote of 50-49 (Senator Susan Collins, RINO-ME, voted ‘aye’) to become the next Health and Human Services secretary.  Generally, someone with a medical background is sought for this post.  Sadly, however, the only thing Becerra qualifies for is his love of abortion, abortion at all stages of fetal development and even post-birth.  The man is an evil, evil ghoul.   At least the people of California have gotten rid of him.  No longer is he the Golden State’s problem; no, he’s now the nation’s problem.   Meanwhile, Senate Minority Leader “Cocaine Mitch” McConnell says that Senate Majority Leader “Cryin’ Chuck” Schumer was correct when he defended the legislative filibuster back in 2017 whereas now, Schumer lacks the balls to keep the left-wing of his party at bay.  Schumer is LEFT-WING of his party.
  96. 2021 Thursday I: Miscellaneous Government News- The Republicans in Congress are concerned over HOW the Democrats plan on funding their (Green New Deal) ‘infrastructure program.’  Representative Nancy Mace, R-SC 1st congressional district, says that the Democrats will stick ‘the American workers, the middle class with paying for another multi-trillion-dollar bill.’  She also says that this scheme is their most expensive so far.   Meanwhile, the House passes an extension on the Equal Rights Amendment despite furious pushback from the GOP.   Next, in a ‘speech’ today,  Joe Biden referred to “Kooky Kamala” Harris once again as “President Harris.”  Dr. Jill Biden should be in prison for elder abuse.  WTF.  Moving on, the U.S. House of Representatives passes a bill with which to award GOLD MEDALS to all Capitol Hill police officers who withstood the ‘insurrection of January 06, 2021.’  Wow.  Go, Nance, go!  Panderer.[xviii] 
  97. 2021 Thursday J: WEATHER NEWS UPDATE- the National Weather Service issues severe warnings for the American Deep South.  The NWS also says that much of the U.S. is going to be in the throes of an extended drought.  WTF is going on in the atmosphere with all the chem trails?  Something is occurring of which hardly anyone knows.  We would LOVE to know what our government or worse- the globalist government- is doing to the world’s atmosphere.
  98. 2021 Thursday K: MISCELLANEOUS NEWS- The Kansas state Senate passes a bill prohibiting trannys from playing in girls’ and women’s sports.  It will advance to the GOP-controlled House in the state and then move to the governor’s desk.   Next, Lt. General Michael Flynn’s former business partner, Bijan Rafiekan, found himself resentenced by an appeals court over whatever bogus crime with which he was charged.   Next, Dan Bongino is going to assume Rush Limbaugh’s radio slot on Talk Radio.   In other interesting news, Los Angeles County D.A. George Gascon admits to cutting 8,000 years of prison sentences given to L.A. criminals and this in just 100 days.  We are NEVER visiting Los Angeles City or County ever again until this scurrilous POS is removed from office.
  99. 2021 Thursday L: GOP Miscellaneous News: a nonpartisan polling groups says that Senator Marco Rubio, R-FL, is the most effective U.S. senator.  Next, another poll says that U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas is the most popular SCOTUS justice among Republicans.  Congratulations, Justice Thomas.   Elsewhere, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says he’s optimistic about Joe Biden doing the right thing with the Chi-Coms.   
  100. 2021 Thursday M: Here are the COVID-19 statistics for the planet as a whole: 121,585,388 confirmed cases, +583,289, 2,685,770, confirmed deaths, +10,249, and 68,888,923 confirmed recoveries, +253,755.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 29,846,814 confirmed cases, up 58,650 from yesterday’s reporting, 543,481 confirmed deaths, UP 1,177, and 116,340,711 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.  It would appear in the age of ‘Joe Biden,’ people are becoming sicker with the Chinese Virus and dying faster than they did under Donald Trump.  Time to impeach this wretched, disorientated slobbering POS.  NOW.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 215,004 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE United States- Vegetable Joe, in another two weeks, you will have tied the total number witnessed by the Trump administration in nearly a year of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu.    
  101. 2021 Thursday N: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,632,133 confirmed cases, 57,016 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 28,646 confirmed cases, 451 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries (same numbers for more than a week now).  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 354,828 confirmed cases, 5,212 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other piece of the U.S., aka the federal district, Washington, D.C., aka Fort Pelosi: currently, they have 42,892 confirmed cases, 1,046 confirmed deaths, but no mention of confirmed recoveries thanks to Mayor Muriel Bowser.  Woof.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 824,926 confirmed cases, 6,062 confirmed deaths, and 793,723 confirmed recoveries.   Let’s look at one other country- Romania, the home of Vlad the Impaler, aka Count Dracula of literary fame: 881,159 cases of the old the Communist China Condition, 21,877 confirmed deaths and 794,950 confirmed recoveries.   Meanwhile, new reports say that New York health authorities were horrified at Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo’s order to return COVID-19-positive patients back into nursing homes (and yet, they did NOTHING.  They are as guilty as the governor who, by the way, has another accuser, a female reporter who says he made her feel uncomfortable).
  102. 2021 Thursday O: Boy!  Dreadful day on the markets now that BIG BUSINESS realizes there is going to be inflation, possibly, stagflation, loss of jobs, low interest rates, all the gains made in 2021 are LOST thanks to “Pro-China Joe” Biden.  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 32,862.30, DOWN 153.07 points (-0.46%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,116.17, DOWN 409.03 points (-3.02%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,915.46, DOWN 58.66 points (-1.48%).  The price of GOLD is $1,732.60 per troy oz., +0.10 (+0.06%) while the price of SILVER is $26.08 per troy ounce, -0.27 (-1.03%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,208.00 per troy oz, -9.50 (-0.78%) while the price of COPPER is $4.07 per pound, -0.04 (-0.94%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,662.80 per troy oz, +124.50 (+4.90%). The price of RHODIUM is $2,175.00 per troy oz, +45.00 (+2.11%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $59.59 per barrel, -0.41 (-0.68%)  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.51 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.84 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.49.  As for Bitcoin, one U.S. greenback = 0.000018.   In Azerbaijani Manat, one greenback equals 1.69.   Last week, there were 770,000 first-time unemployment applications last week which is a reverse from the previous week.  Claims are going up, NOT going down.  The national unemployment rate for February 2021 was 6.2-percent nationwide.
  103. 2021 Thursday P: Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising by the day- in California, gasoline prices have risen to over $3.871 per gallon, $3.580 in Hawaii, and $3.301 in Washington state.  Time for ALL Red States and portions of states to secede from the Communist States of America.   Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $28,066,880,604,872 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but flipping TRILLIONS.  Cloward and Piven running amok.  The country is going to implode.
  104. 2022 Friday: What will happen today…

[i] We hope to do the music of all the soul legends one day including Wilson Pickett among others.

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

[iii] We began promoting the music of both Procol Harum and Robin Trower along with Gary Brooker beginning on Monday, 16-March-2015 through Sunday, 31-May-2015.  We hope you will seek them out and consider adding them to your growing music collection.

[iv] We began offering music by the supergroup Cream on Friday, 17-January-2014 through Monday, 03-February-2014.  Please seek out their albums by visiting posts on those corresponding dates.  You will be glad you did.  Sadly, at the time, we also should have presented the solo catalogs of Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker.  When we do, Derek and the Dominoes will be among them.  We hope to do so at some point within the next decade or so.

[v] We hope to promote the music of the Doobie Brothers sometime before 2030.  We hope you will remain vigilant.

[vi] We shared the music of Deep Purple, Ian Gillan, Captain Beyond, Elf, and Rainbow beginning on Tuesday, 20-March-2018 and concluded this massive offering on Sunday, 14-October-2018.  Please seek out the music by all of these phenomenal bands.  All are fabulous.

[vii] 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

[viii] 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.

[ix] At some point, we will do the music of the Mamas and the Papas the same time we do the music of Sonny & Cher.  We hope you will continue awaiting that glorious day.

[x] We promoted the music of Steppenwolf, beginning on Friday, 25-May-2012 through Sunday, 17-June-2012.  You definitely need to check the music of this iconic band out ASAP.

[xi] Not sure when we will do the music of Blues Image but when we do, you will be the first to know.

[xii] We look forward to promoting the music of Chuck Berry in its entirety but are not sure as to when.  Stay tuned.

[xiii] Apparently, Vladimir Putin is challenging Joe Biden to a public debate.  This is something we would love to have front row seats to watch!

[xiv] We learn today that at least 3 million illegal aliens are going to be legalized immediately just as we learned that all illegal aliens deported under the Trump administration who were here living in the shadows for three years will be invited back.  We also learn that the Biden administration will NOT deport any illegal alien child who manages to walk through Central America, up through Mexico, and somehow cross our border will NEVER be deported- DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

[xv] Interesting note- Atlanta Police Department Captain Jay Baker lost his position as spokesperson for the department today because he relayed to the press what the suspect told him, that he ‘shot those people because of his sex addiction.’  Captain Baker did not sing the song of INCREASED VIOLENCE AGAINST ASIAN-AMERICANS, OH MY, MY!  Identity politics strikes once again and that ho, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is in the midst of it.

[xvi] The incredible thing in all of this is that Democrats despise Asian-Americans, they demonstrate it through holding them back in institutions of higher learning like colleges and universities.  The Dems do not like the fact that Asians are extremely industrial, successful, and do not need government generally to survive and thus the Democrats wage war on them around the clock.  Now that they can use their grief to their advantage, they love the Asians now but when things go back to normal, they will cut them loose the same way Democrats cut Cindy Sheehan lose after she thought she could primary Nancy Pelosi in her California House district race.  Democrats are USERS, they care little for the people they use, it’s who and what they are.

[xvii] Here’s something- Donald J. Trump’s personal wealth FELL by $700 million the four years he was president.  Mr. Trump is the first American president to LOSE money while in office.  The man is a patriot.

[xviii] The ‘January 06, 2021, commission’ by which the government seeks to ‘investigate the Capitol Hill riots, aka THE TRUMP-INSPIRED INSURRECTION, is being held up by…you guessed it…partisanship.

What’s going on between the West and Russia is not something that had to happen. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the birth of modern Russia, the West could have incorporated them rather than dismissed them as a failed state. In so doing, instead of democracy, they got Putin, and not listening to his repeated ‘security assurances’ put us to where we now are- on the precipice of World War III

62. TODAY IN HISTORY—THURSDAY, MARCH 03, 2022:

What’s going on between the West and Russia is not something that had to happen.  Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the birth of modern Russia, the West could have incorporated them rather than dismissed them as a failed state.  In so doing, instead of democracy, they got Putin, and not listening to his repeated ‘security assurances’ put us to where we now are- on the precipice of World War III

  2. 2022 Thursday A: Joe Biden to Donald J. Trump Covid-19 Deaths- Note: since Joe Biden became president on January 20, 2021, there have been 531,967 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 168,912 Chi-Com lab-engineered virus deaths in FOURTEEN MONTHS.  Joe has accomplished this onerous task in 407 days.  He promised that he would lockdown the virus, NOT the country.            
  3. 2022 Thursday B: COVID-19 Statistics in the four states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Florida, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 8,993,362 confirmed cases, 86,111 confirmed deaths, and 8,907,251 confirmed recoveries (since California won’t report recoveries anymore, we are doing it-.  Moving on, here are the numbers for Florida: 5,856,468 confirmed cases, 70,789 confirmed deaths, and 4,268,222 confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 236,749 confirmed cases, 1,344 confirmed deaths, and 235,405 of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for Washington: 1,427,013 confirmed cases, 11,954 confirmed deaths, and 1,415,059 confirmed recoveries (same numbers).  Let us look at one other part of the U.S., American Samoa: they have 155 confirmed cases, 0 confirmed deaths, and 155 confirmed recoveries.[iii]   
  4. 2022 Thursday C: Foreign Covid Stats of The Day- Now that Mo has moved to Israel, let us look at the statistics there: 3,653,608 confirmed cases, 10,239 confirmed deaths, and 3,585,292 confirmed recoveries.   Let us look at one other portion of the world- Timor-Leste, 168th place on the list: 22,736 cases of the virus, 129 confirmed death and 22,291 confirmed recoveries.[iv]                         
  5. 2022 Thursday D: Stock Market Closes/Precious and Rare Metals: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 33,794.66, DOWN 96.69 points (-0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,537.94 DOWN 214.07 points (-1.56%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 4,369.49, DOWN 23.05 points (-0.53%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $109.17 per barrel, -1.45 (-1.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,938.06 per troy oz., +15.70 (+0.82%) while the price of SILVER is $25.21 per troy ounce, +0.02 (+0.08%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,081.10 per troy oz, +13.10 (+1.23%) while the price of COPPER is $4.78 per pound, +0.12 (+2.50%).[v]  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,780.97 per troy oz., +5.36 (+0.19%).

  6. 2022 Thursday E: U.S. National Debt and Gasoline Prices in The Four States in Which We Have Chef-Authors- Thanks to the Biden administration, gasoline prices continue rising and lowering by the day and NOTE- these prices are sans TAXES- in California, gasoline prices have moved to $4.940 per gallon, $3.618 in Florida, $4.632 in Hawaii, and $4.109 in Washington state.[viii]    Let us look at one other portion of the United States: Minnesota- $3.534.  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 142nd HIGHEST gasoline price in the world- Mayotte: $7.391 per U.S. Gallon.[ix]    Meanwhile, here is a snapshot of the U.S. National Debt for today: $30,294,183,646,727 and the Democrats are adding TRILLIONS of dollars to it, not BILLIONS but frigging TRILLIONS.[x]  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 Saudi Arabia 2 the next largest holder of U.S. debt is South Korea.  This nation holds $131,000,000,000 of U.S. debt (it is important to note that these numbers vary every day with one nation after another jockeying for top position).
  7. 2022 Thursday F: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis- Russia is shelling a nuclear power plant in Ukraine.  This leads many to believe they seek to cause a Chernobyl-style crisis, one that will most likely spread nuclear fallout to all of Europe to the west, across the Atlantic Ocean to the New World and back across the Pacific to Asia.  Perhaps they seek Joe Biden and NATO to back off and stand down?   Next, a new report says that Russia plans ‘public executions’ with which to dampen Ukrainian spirits.  Didn’t Vladimir Putin learn anything from the history of World War II to know that when one executes people fighting for the freedom, it makes the others fight even harder against such totalitarian shit?  For every German soldier murdered by partisans during World War II, the Nazis executed 100 hostages.  This only made the others fight that much harder.  Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says, ‘we broke Russia’s elaborate plans within a week.’
  8. 2022 Thursday G: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, says the ‘U.S. must stop using imports of Russian oil.’  Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says that ‘Russia is using energy as a weapon against the United States and NATO.’  Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large District, says the ‘U.S. can easily replace Russian oil’ which is true.  We have our own, but the Democrats won’t let us do it.  Next, former Obama stooge, General Wesley Clark says that ‘Vladimir Putin must be named a war criminal and that a NATO No-Fly Zone must be established over Ukraine’ with which to usher us closer to the Third World War.  What a flipping moron.  Enough.
  9. 2022 Thursday H: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis II- Senator Lisa Murkowski, RINO-AK, says the ‘U.S. must stop using imports of Russian oil.’  Congressman Jim Jordan, R-OH 4th congressional district, says that ‘Russia is using energy as a weapon against the United States and NATO.’  Congressman Matt Rosendale, R-MT At-Large District, says the ‘U.S. can easily replace Russian oil’ which is true.  We have our own, but the Democrats won’t let us do it.  Next, former Obama stooge, General Wesley Clark says that ‘Vladimir Putin must be named a war criminal and that a NATO No-Fly Zone must be established over Ukraine’ with which to usher us closer to the Third World War.  What a flipping moron.  Enough.
  10. 2022 Thursday I: Joe Biden’s Ukraine-Russian Manufactured Crisis III- Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov says that Russia’s leadership is not insane as Western news media outlets claim.  Thus, the threat of ‘nuclear war’ is something which Western governments should ponder carefully before they do something imbecilic such as trying to establish a ‘No-Fly Zone’ over Ukraine like that pathetic lump of meat, Wesley Clark is urging.
  11. 2022 Thursday J: Joe Biden’s Border Catastrophe I- Our glorious vice president and border czar, “Kooky Kamala” Harris has been in charge of the border for 335 days now.  She has not been anywhere close to the southern border in, uh, 249 days.  What a disgrace.  Okay, we at the AICPENDBLOG.COM have determined the cost of caring for the illegal aliens within the country the past 62 days is around $403,741,253.  That money could do so much for the American people.  Next, the cost of caring for these illegals the past 427 days is around $42,044,630,748.  Meanwhile, since January 01, 2022, we believe the estimated number of illegal aliens who have swarmed across the southern border since January 01, 2022, to be around 646,486.  Finally, we believe the estimated LOW number of illegals in the country at or around 43,406,416.  However, since the inception of the blog back in the spring of 2009, we estimated the number of illegals in the country- back then- at 35-50 million whereas now, we believe the numbers are closer to 85-to-125 million which is an absolutely shocking but much more honest number.
  12. 2022 Thursday K: Foreign News-Overseas News I- Germany urges United Nations Human Rights Commission to publicize its report on the Uighur genocide inside the People’s Republic of China.  Next, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban says he won’t veto European Union sanctions on Russia.  Why would he?  Meanwhile, former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was visiting Taiwan where the island nation was going to honor him when lo and behold, a major power failure descended upon the liberty-loving island.  Sounds like the Chi-Coms are f**king around.
  13. 2022 Thursday L: Vaccine Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money) News- (1) Pfizer: $47.83 (2) AstraZeneca: $60.07 (3) Merck & Company: $77.15 (4) Johnson & Johnson: $168.48 (5) Novavax: $80.53 (6) BioNTech: $142.26 (7) Moderna: $141.52.
  14. 2022 Thursday M: Military Suppliers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 2) News- (1) Raytheon: $99.83 (2) General Dynamics: $238.13 (3) Boeing: $188.85 (4) Lockheed Martin: $447.82 (5) Northrop-Grumman: $449.69.
  15. 2022 Thursday N: PPE Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 3) News- (1) Ansell Ltd.: $25.12 (2) DuPont: $76.89 (3) Honeywell: $187.52 (4) 3M: $148.30 (5) Teijen: $1,350.00.
  16. 2022 Thursday O: Artificial (Fake) Meat Manufacturers’ Stock Prices (Follow the Money 4) News- (1) Kellogg’s/Morning Star Farms: $64.73 (2) Maple Leaf Foods/Tofurkey: $27.47 (3) Beyond Meat: $46.41.
  17. 2022 Thursday P: Big Box Store Stock Prices (Follow the Money 5) News- (1) Wal-Mart: $139.29 (2) Lowe’s: $226.28 (3) Home Depot: $324.35 (4) Costco Wholesale Corp: $533.05 (5) Amazon: $2,957.97.
  18. 2022 Thursday Q: Joe Biden Regime News I- The FAA has banned Russians flying aircraft over U.S. airspace.  Meanwhile, reporters are pressing mouthpiece Jen “Circle Back” Psaki on her boss’s stance of funding the Russian invasion of Ukraine by buying millions of dollars’ worth of oil daily from the Russkies.
  19. 2022 Thursday R: Political News I- Congressman Van Taylor, R-TX 3rd congressional district, has announced his resignation now that the truth has come out about an extramarital affair with a former ISIS bride who now is a widow because her POS spouse went to be with Allah.  Speaking of Texas, Congressman Pat Fallon, R-TX 4th congressional district, says that Governor Greg Abbott is going to clobber Democrat challenger, Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke in November.
  20. 2022 Thursday S: Observation of the Day- In my opinion, I think blaming Russia for all the ills of the world has led us to the precipice upon which, we now teeter.  We had an opportunity after the collapse of the Soviet Union to bring Russia into the fold, but everyone treated them as some sort of pariah and left them to languish.  Had the West made a concerted effort to bring Russia into the European world, we might not be undergoing what we are now.  Beginning with the Obama-Biden regime, Democrats began to blame Russia for fictional ills and when Donald Trump ran for the White House and won it, suddenly, Russia was the one everyone blamed for the election’s outcome.  The Democrats use the Russians as their punching bag thinking that they are somehow impotent and are unable to respond to the constant finger-pointing and blame game.  The Russians have done what they have had to do, beginning with the annexation of Crimea.  Instead of honoring their demands for Ukraine not becoming a member of NATO, the Obama-Biden regime exacerbated their fears which led to them stealing it away from their southern neighbor.  Yes, they yanked away two Georgian provinces during the Bush #43 years, but Bush was beginning to use them as a punching bag, too.  Trump tried to make relations better with Russia, but the Democratic Party outcry kept him from improving relations between their country and ours.  None of this was necessary- especially when communist China is the bigger threat.  Look where Western stupidity has pushed Russia- into the cold embrace of the Chi-Coms.  Not good.  Chef Goldie McNamara.

54. TODAY IN HISTORY—WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 2022

Following the family of slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick questioning the cause of his death on January 6, 2021- the day of the INFAMOUS Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol and caused mayhem, only Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert asks, ‘where is the intel that shows we still need to surround the Capitol with wire and troops?’ It’s akin to the Democrats making the Capitol into a Green Zone, like the one in Baghdad, Iraq, which is crazy.

  67. 2017 Thursday: In Lahore, Pakistan, jihadists run amok killing at least 6 people and wounding loads of others.  The so-called ‘religion of peace’ strikes again.  Elsewhere, ECHL team the Alaska Aces says that the 2016-2017 season will be its final run after 28 years of playing hockey around the country.  The economy has had a downturn and ticket sales have gone way down.  Wait for the economy to revive.  It will under President Donald J. Trump.
  68. 2018 Friday: As the ‘Trump-Russia Collusion’ scandal continues, Rick Gates- part of Trump’s campaign team- pleads ‘guilty’ to charges of conspiring against the United States and for making false statements after Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III and his attack dog, lead attorney Andrew Weissman broke his balls, so-to-speak.  People’s lives are being ruined by a bogus, political witch hunt and yet, it grinds on and on.  Enough, already!
  69. 2019 Saturday: Clashes along the Venezuelan border with Colombia lead to two deaths as government officials try to stop humanitarian aid from crossing the borders of the ‘socialist paradise.’  However, as things continue to grow worse in Venezuela, 60 of that country’s National Guard members defect to neighboring Colombia.  Finally- they can get something to eat!  Meanwhile, another thug- Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir declares a national emergency, sacks all state governors, and dismisses the government.  Stay tuned.
  70. 2020 Sunday: As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the world, Italy- a country friendly to the Chi-Coms- reports another 76 cases of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu which brings the number of cases there up to 155 with one death.  South Korea- also being hammered by the Chinese Virus- reports that 169 people have come down with the virus which brings their total to 602 infected.  The Chi-Vi, however, is not content to infect those countries; no, it’s also infecting Iran which leads Pakistan and Afghanistan to seal their borders with that Chi-Com ally.  Turkey also follows suit especially after it learns that Iran has three deaths within its borders.
  71. 2021 Tuesday: Today is Day 35 of the Biden Regime.  First, we must congratulate Joe Biden.  He has served as president longer than did William Henry Harrison who served just a month before dying from complications from pneumonia.  Congratulations there, Joe, you have made it five weeks as of today.   Next, former CIA Director James Woolsey says that the CIA and former KGB officials agree that the Soviets ordered Lee Harvey Oswald to assassinate President John F. Kennedy.  Apparently, Oswald, a man who defected to the Soviet Union and then who defected back to the U.S. had hoped that he would be a HERO in the USSR. 
  72. 2021 Tuesday A: Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos is floating the idea of buying the Washington Redskins.  Next, golfer Tiger Woods is airlifted to the hospital following an automobile accident in California.  Initial reports are ‘hopeful.’  Elsewhere, some moronic Democrats in Florida have REFUSED to lower flags to half-mast as ordered by Governor Ron DeSantis in memory of the death of Rush Limbaugh.   Speaking of Florida, a poll within the state shows that Governor DeSantis is far more popular than either Senator Marco Rubio or Senator Rick Scott, both fellow Republicans.   Regarding Mr. Limbaugh, a virtual celebration of his life is in the works so please stick around for further information.
  73. 2021 Tuesday B: Security officials in Washington, D.C. are undergoing questions today as to what happened on January 06, 2021.  Several of the ones being questioned say they had intelligence suggesting that there would be unrest in the nation’s capital on that day.  However, the former House sergeant-at-arms, fired by House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi agreed that what was known did not support the request for federal troops.  Big mistake on their part.  Yet, most believe that Speaker Pelosi and perhaps Chuck Schumer banned any federal troops or additional law enforcement on scene because they knew in advance that (allegedly) Antifa and Black Lives Matter thugs could work their magic.   Add to this the fact that the District of Columbia police chief expressed shock over NOT calling out the National Guard ahead of time to augment law enforcement.  President Donald J. Trump authorized as many as 10,000 Guard troops to Mayor Muriel “Black Lives Matter” Bowser, but she refused (probably cos Speaker Pelosi ordered her to).
  74. 2021 Tuesday C: Indiana House of Representatives votes to remove license to carry a handgun within the state.  Next, the well-known hate group- the Southern Poverty Law Center- says that over the course of 2020, 160 Confederate monuments and statues were removed.  What a shame.  We must remember our history lest we forget it.   In other news, Dick Morris tells Newsmax that the American Left has terrorized the U.S. Supreme Court into remaining mum on the systemic electoral fraud that occurred on November 03, 2020.  However, Associate Justice Clarence Thomas authored a blistering dissent on the Pennsylvania election fraud case.  We love you, Clarence!   In other news, as the economy begins to falter, Federal Reserve chief Jerome Powell is heading to Capitol Hill today to testify on the U.S. economy. 
  75. 2021 Tuesday D: Illegal Alien News- some states are considering giving illegal aliens in-state tuition in another show of WOKENESS while keeping or raising tuition for in-state citizens and jacking up prices for out-of-state citizens.  Bet they feel really good about giving river swimmers and fence jumpers FREE tuition.   Meanwhile, as holding pens along the border fill up with illegal aliens, resources to care for this invading army are running out.  Boot them out of the country and back into Mexico.  Now.
  76. 2021 Tuesday E: The Department of Justice revives the investigation into George Floyd’s death.  Meanwhile, wimp Judge Merrick Garland continues deflecting questions during his confirmation hearings for U.S. Attorney General.  One thing he does promise is to go after evil white supremacists while black and Latino supremacists can go about their business.   Next, the U.N. confirms Linda Thomas-Greenfield as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. 
  77. 2021 Tuesday F: Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tells Newsmax that it’s a shame to ‘throw away’ the Trump administration’s success with Iran.  Speaking of Iran, the White House (meaning Barack through Kamala) is NOT ruling out using the pope as a go-between with Tehran and the U.S.  Speaking of Iran, Ric Grenell- former director of national intelligence- says there must be a ‘dive into the private negotiations between now climate czar John F. Kerry.’
  78. 2021 Tuesday G: The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci says that ‘political divisions’ (in which he had a hand) ‘led to more than half-a-million Chi-Vi deaths in the United States.’  The AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci also said today that ‘even vaccinated people should not dine indoors.’  Dr. Fauci, we say this with love: “SHUT THE F**K UP!”  Speaking of the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, Johnson & Johnson announces they should be able to vaccinate 20 million people by the end of March.  Go for it but we won’t be in line, thank you very much.  Elsewhere, a misguided poll suggests ‘that MOST are confident that Joe Biden can get everyone vaccinated and schools reopened.’  Please!   In other healthcare news, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra is at Capitol Hill today shagging questions in his confirmation hearings for next head of Health and Human Services.  GOP lawmakers are concerned this ultra-leftist hack has NO experience- other than abortion at all stages- in healthcare.  We concur.  Still, for those of us who live in California, it would be great to get him out of here.  (Note- the libs are wetting their panties because Becerra would be the first Latino to head HHS).  Finally, the Biden team is searching high and searching low to find enough votes to push bigot Neera Tanden into the White House Office of Management and Budget.  We don’t want her!
  79. 2021 Tuesday H: House Democrats are working hard at de-platforming One America News (OAN), Newsmax, and Fox News Channel (although the last one, we are unclear as to WHY seeing as how they are overloaded with liberal, foaming-at-the-mouth Democrats).  They are also attempting to de-platform the American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day which is why we are planning to change our format.   Meanwhile, the House Democrats are pushing H.R. 1, the “For the People Act,” a plan with which they plan on taking over the nation’s elections and making them like the mess we experienced last November.  This is not good.  We also learn that the transition from the Trump administration to Joe Biden was among the costliest transitions in U.S. presidential history. 
  80. 2021 Tuesday I: Spicer & Co. on Newsmax are investigating the Democrats’ war on Christianity.  Meanwhile, Google announces that it could soon lift the ban on political advertising, one they imposed on the country for the past several months.   Speaking of politics, failed Senator Kelly Loeffler, R-GA, has established a new voting group- Greater Georgia- with which to counter the dry rot Stacey Abrams- the ‘governor of the Peach State’- has embedded in the state.   Speaking of Georgia senators, another failed GOP Senator David Perdue says he WON’T be running in 2022 to get his seat back.  Loser.  
  81. 2021 Tuesday J: Coca-Cola, Nike, and Apple are lobbying to have a bill that prevents them from using Uighur Muslim slave labor in Xinjiang, communist China, softened or tossed so they can continue using slave labor to make their goods.  Coca-Cola also is encouraging its white workers not to be so white.  Does this mean that white workers can use CPT?  If so, that would be awesome!  Otherwise, stuff your wokeness where the sun don’t shine, Coke.   Elsewhere, Joe Biden is going to host a virtual summit with Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau so they can discuss what the nations share in common- climate change- and what they don’t- the Keystone XL pipeline that our northern neighbor wants to get back on track.  (This means Kooky Kamala will be the one doing the hosting).  In other exciting news, California is close to having 1.5 million VALIDATED signatures in the recall effort of Governor Gavin “The Smiler” Newsom, an effort in which, Republicans, Democrats, and independents have all participated.  We want to get rid of this POS.  NOW!  (We have until March 17 to finish collecting and validating signatures).
  82. 2021 Tuesday K: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 112,072,132 confirmed cases, +374,686, 2,843,413, confirmed deaths, +10,328, and 63,217,963 confirmed recoveries, +243,313.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,526,532 confirmed cases, up 70,899 from yesterday’s reporting, 507,469 confirmed deaths, UP 2,310, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries with NO UPDATES NOW in at least four-plus weeks now (this number no longer even shows up).  This tells us the Biden administration no longer wants them reported.   NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 176,721 CHI-VI DEATHS IN THE U.S.  Joe, YOU claimed you had a plan to defeat the lab-engineered Panda Pandemic, what the hell are YOU going to do about it- sit on your ass playing pattycake with your grandchildren and blame everything on Donald Trump.
  83. 2021 Tuesday L: Next, in the three states in which, the world-famous American Institute of Culinary Politics-the Elemental News of the Day employs chef-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,537,371 confirmed cases, 49,593 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,778 confirmed cases, 431 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 338,342 confirmed cases, 4,924 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Colorado: currently, they have 424,097 confirmed cases, 5,990 confirmed deaths but NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Amazing how very few states in the country report their recovery numbers.  Ask yourselves, WHY?  What purpose does it serve to provide case numbers, numbers of fatalities but nary a number of folks who have beat this vile Chi-Com virus.  What’s up with that?
  84. 2021 Tuesday M: Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 759,572 confirmed cases, 5,634 confirmed deaths, and 712,555 confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other country- Argentina: they have 2,077,175 confirmed cases of the Beijing Bug, 51,510 confirmed deaths, and NO 1,877,860 confirmed recoveries.   We will say this: the primary purpose of the Chi-Vi was to remove the threat of Trump- the Chi-Coms accomplished that goal.  The secondary goal (or so we believe) is to ‘cleanse the world’ of the old, the infirm, the sick, and the mentally disabled.  Anyone else who died from this Wuhan Institute of Virology lab-engineered virus is just collateral damage.  Shame on the Chi-Coms!  Time to take their criminal asses to the Hague and put them on trial.
  85. 2021 Tuesday N:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,537.35 UP 15.66 points (+0.05%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 14,465.20, DOWN 67.85 points (-0.50%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,881.37, UP 4.87 points (+0.13%).  The price of GOLD is $1,810.30 per troy oz., +4.40 (+0.24%) while the price of SILVER is $27.94 per troy ounce, +0.25 (+0.91%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,264.10 per troy oz, +24.40 (+1.97%) while the price of COPPER is $4.22 per pound, +0.04 (+0.91%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,344.70 per troy oz, -58.20 (-2.42%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.24 per barrel, -0.43 (-0.70%). 
  86. 2021 Tuesday O: Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.46 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.82 euros and in Iranian Rial equals 42,000.00 (same as last week).  That’s what a terrorism-based economy gets you.  Next, here is the conversion for one U.S. dollar and Bitcoin: 0.000020.   In other economic news, consumer confidence has grown for a second straight month in a row with the index rising to 91.3 from 88.9 in January.  Consumer spending is about 70-percent of the U.S. economy. 
  87. 2021 Tuesday P: A federal judge orders the wife of Mexican cartel thug Joaquim Guzmán, aka El Chapo, to remain in custody following her arrest yesterday.  A federal prosecutor says that Emma Coronel Aispuro ‘worked closely with the command-and-control structure of her husband’s Sinaloa cartel to distribute cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth, heroin, and other illicit narcotics and drugs into the United States. 
  88. 2021 Tuesday Q: Elsewhere, Iranian state TV reports Tehran has officially begun restricting international inspections of its nuclear facilities.  The move is seen as a bid to pressure European leaders and the ‘Biden administration’ to lift all Trump-imposed sanctions.  They want to return to the JCPOA and the ‘Biden administration’ wants to return to the JCPOA so we believe the sanctions will be lifted without the West getting anything in return for their misguided confidence.  
  89. 2021 Tuesday R: Meanwhile, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, aka “BoJo,” recognizes the ‘deep ethical and moral’ implications and complications of urging the G 7 nations to commence using a COVID-19 passport for citizens to enter one another’s countries.  The UK could push for a ‘vaccine passport’ system throughout the continent once the G 7 nations establish this bulls**t.   This is where we are heading, thanks to the AMAZING Dr. Tony Fauci who has said, ‘masks don’t work,’ then ‘masks do work,’ ‘goggles might be necessary’ (he forgot earmuffs), then ‘several masks work’ and then ‘we might need to wear masks through 2022,’ and finally, ‘even with vaccines, we still cannot dine indoors.’  WHAT THE F**K?  This is what is destroying the planet. 
  90. 2021 Tuesday S: Five members of the ERCOT Board in Texas resign following their disastrous ‘non-handling’ of the power crisis over the past couple of weeks.  Meanwhile, Dr. Alan Dershowitz, an amazing legal scholar, says that two House Democrats want to establish ‘red channels’ with which to use counter-McCarthyism by banning Fox News, One America News Network, and Newsmax.   Give the leftists an inch and the leftists will grab miles.  With Rush Limbaugh dead, conservative talk radio, television, and blogs under attack (like ours), the liberals are launching a massive offensive to silence ALL of us.   In other crazy news, Senator Mitt Romney, RINO-UT, says, ‘if Donald Trump runs in 2024, he’ll win the GOP nomination.’
  91. 2021 Tuesday T: Following the family of slain Capitol Hill police officer Brian Sicknick questioning the cause of his death on January 6, 2021- the day of the INFAMOUS Antifa- and- Black Lives Matter-infiltrated Trump supporters who stormed the Capitol and caused mayhem, only Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert asks, ‘where is the intel that shows we still need to surround the Capitol with wire and troops?’  It’s akin to the Democrats making the Capitol into a Green Zone, like the one in Baghdad, Iraq, which is crazy.  It tells us here at the AICPENDBLOG.COM the Democrats intrinsically KNOW they stole the 2020 Presidential Election (as well as Senate races in Georgia, Michigan, and perhaps even Colorado) and fear the wrath of the American people.  WE KNOW WHAT YOU DID, DEMOCRATS… In other news, White House reporters question Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki as to ‘WHY we have NEW cages, what appears to be Quonset hut holding pens, for illegal alien brats.’  This is criminal and yet the Dems are NOT moaning and screaming about it.
  92. 2021 Tuesday U: Here are the numbers for tonight’s Mega-Millions Draw #1636 with $22 million up for grabs: 05, 07, 09, 20, 57, and Mega 15.  The highest winner was ONE person who had FIVE numbers but NO Mega for a prize of $194,546.  The winning ticket was sold at the Westside Market in Santa Barbara, CA 93101.
  93. 2022 Wednesday: Here we are, another day living under the extremely corrupt Biden regime.  God, please save our nation and save my family.  NOW.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:

UMC- the label owning the Richard and Linda Thompson catalog- compiled an 8-CD box set featuring EVERYTHING the duo recorded over the course of a decade.  “Hard Luck Stories 1972-1982” came out on August 01, 2020, and contained so much music that it would require the good portion of a day to listen to all it.  Thank God record companies are willing to do the work of the people by compiling everything from within the vaults, putting it an attractive package, and providing all sorts of extras because without them and their efforts, fans would be oblivious to the music of their favorite artists.  We hope everyone will rush out and check out this glorious package as we think fans of the man and his then-wife will enjoy it as much as we do.  Look for it now.

  56. 2016 Wednesday: After famed Filipino boxer Manny Pacquaio makes some comments about ‘gay people being worse than animals,’ Nike yanks a lucrative endorsement.  WTF?  The Cancel Culture strikes again.  Freedom of speech for ALL and not for some.  Elsewhere, a car bomb erupts in the streets of Ankara, Turkey, killing at least 28 passersby and wounding innumerable others.  Meanwhile, the White House announces that President Barack Obama will soon be visiting the communist island nation of Cuba within the next couple of weeks.
  57. 2017 Friday: The research journal, “GSA Today,” announces the discovery of a new, mostly underwater continent dubbed Zealandia in the South Pacific.   Meanwhile, in Spain, nearly 500 illegal migrants arriving from North Africa land on the beaches of the Iberian Peninsula and immediately begin scrambling into the interior of the country.  Elsewhere, in Maiduguri, Nigeria, up to seven suicide bombers blow themselves up attacking a camp for refugees.  Of course, it’s Boko Haram, members of the ‘so-called religion of peace.’
  58. 2018 Saturday: In north-eastern Nigeria in Konduga, three suicide bombers kill 18 people.  Ah, got to love the ‘religion of peace,’ no?  Elsewhere, in Swansea, United Kingdom, a 4.4-magnitude earthquake strikes the British Isles, the strongest in a decade.
  59. 2019 Sunday: In the streets of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, thousands protest in the streets over government corruption and inflation.  What else is new?  Elsewhere, President Donald J. Trump is facing massive pushback from Democrats and RINO Republicans alike following his Friday declaration of a National Emergency along the southern border.  He did this as Congress refuses him funds for the extremely necessary border wall.  Maggots.
  60. 2020 Monday: Disheveled old crone, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, continues braying about President Trump being ‘impeached for life,’ that he ‘was not acquitted’ as ‘without a trial’ there can be no acquittal.  What should be clear to everyone is that this haggard old wretch should undergo impeachment herself because she has clearly lost her mind.  We hope in November 2020 the good people of her district will vote her out of office and send her home to sit in a rocking chair, a shawl covering her sagging shoulders, and that someone will turn on reruns of Matlock while spoon-feeding her chicken noodle soup.  We place part of the blame on her for convincing that Punjab POS Sundar Pichai to close our two Google  Blogger sites, simply because she won the Second Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  Say it ain’t so, Speaker Pelosi!  Meanwhile, additional negative information continues coming out on former New York City Mayor “Mini” Mike Bloomberg showing him disparaging farmers and factory workers all the while crowing about ‘stop and frisk’ taking down minority thug kids in his city.  What a bum.
  61. 2020 Monday A: Yesterday, it was 1,100-plus former Department of Justice officials demanding U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr over his request for Justice and for the judge in the Roger Stone case to reconsider the harsh sentence being imposed.  Today, it’s more than 2,000 former DOJ employees which tells you just how many hardcore leftists we have in the Justice Department.  Roger Stone does not deserve prison.  Period.
  62. 2021 Wednesday: 29 of the Biden Regime: THE BIG NEWS OF THE DAY- RUSH LIMBAUGH HAS SUCCUMBED TO LUNG CANCER AT AGE 70.  ALTHOUGH NONE OF US EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF MEETING YOU OVER THE PAST THREE DECADES-PLUS, WE ALL FEEL AS THOUGH YOU WERE A PERSONAL FRIEND.  GOD BLESS AND WE WILL SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE.
  63. 2021 Wednesday A: After being slammed since he entered office for pulling back from America’s Middle Eastern allies- primarily Israel and Saudi Arabia- White House Press Secretary Jen “Circle Back” Psaki says, ‘Joe reached out to Israel today.’  Wow.  Good for you, Chi-Com Joe!  Meanwhile, the Biden administration scraps a deal his predecessor made with ICE and Border Patrol unions that gave them VETO POWER over any misguided presidential decisions such as Joe Biden throwing open the southern border and allowing illegal aliens to stream in like lice off a dead dog.  In other Joe Biden news, the 46th president is under fire for his ‘soft-as-hell’ policies on the Chi-Coms.  He won’t go near the rampant human rights abuses in communist China, a place where institutional rape of Uighur Muslim women continues around the clock, a place where religious and ethnic minorities find themselves locked up in ‘job training centers.’   Come on, man, say something, Joe!  Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says that ‘Joe is more or less spewing Chi-Com propaganda by not calling his masters out for their atrocious dismissal of human rights abuses in that country.’ 
  64. 2021 Wednesday B: Speaking of the Chi-Coms, bloggers in that country must now receive approval from the communist government before they comment or put-up posts speaking about the law, the military, and/or politics.  In other Far East news, the citizens of Myanmar are throwing up roadblocks and protesting the military junta that took control of their country, locked up their civilian leaders, and is allowing loads of prison scum out into the streets to terrify the nation’s citizens. 
  65. 2021 Wednesday C: In Utah, the move to censure freshman RINO Senator Mitt Romney for voting to convict former President Donald J. Trump is gathering steam.  Within a span of about 36 hours, the movement has gained more than 5,000 signatures.  Meanwhile, the GOP is going to target the highly disliked teachers’ unions in the 2022 Mid-Term Elections.  Governors should fire these losers like President Ronald Reagan fired striking air traffic controllers.   Speaking of teachers’ unions, a billboard in Sonoma County, California, tells it like it is: “HAVE YOU SEEN OUR MISSING KIDS (referring to students), LAST SEEN ON MARCH 13, 2020?  Elsewhere, following last week’s vote of 15-8 in the South Carolina State Senate, the state’s House of Representatives is set to vote on a bill limiting abortions.  Once an ultrasound detects a fetal heartbeat, NO abortions can occur.  Period. 
  66. 2021 Wednesday D:  In New York, a bipartisan push to force the criminal Governor Andrew “Killer” Cuomo to share ALL information on the more than 9,000 nursing home deaths in the Empire State from his COVID-19 policies.  Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are demanding answers NOW.  Yet, this slope-headed cretin won’t apologize nor admit fault for the massive number of deaths that occurred on his watch, especially when President Donald J. Trump provided him with loads of help.   In other state news, In other Cuomo news, baby brother Chris, a dimwit on CNN, is also getting blasted for remaining mum on the outrages older brother Andrew has committed in New York.  Typical leftwing family member bums.  Georgia passes a bill that increases the penalties for violence committed by mobs which means Antifa and Black Lives Matter human garbage may soon find themselves in the joint. 
  67. 2021 Wednesday E: The Biden administration says the U.S. is going to pay the World Health Organization $200 million it claims the nation owes.  Everything Trump did, Biden is overturning (well, Barack Obama is overturning).  Speaking of overturning things, Joe Biden is backing away from the TikTok ban which means the Chi-Coms will be able to begin harvesting information from America’s young people being the dimwits they are.  Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, calls for harmony among members of the Grand Old Party.   Elsewhere, the NASA Mars Rover is set to deploy to the surface of the Red Planet tomorrow.  Next, former Texas Governor Rick Perry says, ‘Texans don’t want the federal government controlling their power grid.’  Hell, no one should want that, especially a freedom-loving state like the Lone Star State.  Speaking of the crazy winter weather sweeping through the region, at least 26 people have died in the storms.  Elsewhere, well-known high IQ genius Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke says, “Texas is a failed state.”  It requires a dimwit to see failure.  The only failure is that Austin allowed Green New Deal morons to push their bogus renewable energy sources.
  68. 2021 Wednesday F: Here are the numbers for the Xi Jinping Bat Flu- Pelosi Pox:  Here are the statistics for the planet as a whole: 109,678,891 confirmed cases, +432,687, 2,423,443, confirmed deaths, +12,988, and 61,717,022 confirmed recoveries, +284,639.  Next, here are the stats for the United States, the intended target of the Chinese-engineered Wuhan Virus pandemic: 28,030,330 confirmed cases, up 64,545 from yesterday’s reporting, 492,947 confirmed deaths, UP 1,831, and 11,166,500 confirmed recoveries, UP- UNKNOWN- same number as the last three-plus week’s number- WTF.  NOTE: SINCE JOE BIDEN BECAME PRESIDENT ON JANUARY 20, 2021, THERE HAVE BEEN 164,356 CHI-VI DEATHS.  Joe, you said you had a plan- where the f**k is it?  In Beijing?  YOU are NOT our president, sir.
  69. 2021 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-bloggers- California, Hawaii, and Washington- here are the stats, California first: 3,498,760 confirmed cases, 47,446 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Next here are the numbers for Hawaii: 27,460 confirmed cases, 426 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Finally, here are the stats for leftist-Marxist-socialist hellhole of Washington: 333,185 confirmed cases, 4,777 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Let us look at one other state: Virginia: currently, they have 555,592 confirmed cases, 7,075 confirmed deaths, and NO MENTION of confirmed recoveries.  Now that Mo has relocated to Israel, let’s look at the statistics there: 734,575 confirmed cases, 5,441 confirmed deaths, and 673,908 confirmed recoveries.  Let’s look at one other country, shall we?  Italy: 2,735,591 confirmed cases, 94,171 confirmed deaths, and 2,251,734 confirmed recoveries.    In other interesting Chinese Virus news, we learned today what we already knew: the Chi-Coms spearheaded a massive disinformation campaign to cover up their role as the ORIGINATORS of the Wuhan Virus Crisis.  Go figure.
  70. 2021 Wednesday H:  Here are today’s Stock Market closes: DOW Jones Industrial Average: 31,613.02, UP 90.27 points (+0.29%).  Next, the NASDAQ: 13,965.50, DOWN 82.00 points (-0.58%).  Finally, here are the stats for the S&P 500: 3,931.33, DOWN 1.26 points (-0.31%).  The price of GOLD is $1,775.10 per troy oz., +2.30 (+0.10%) while the price of SILVER is $27.45 per troy ounce, +0.13 (+0.48%).  The price of PLATINUM is $1,262.30 per troy oz, +4.60 (+0.37%) while the price of COPPER is $3.82 per pound, 0.00 (+0.01%).  The price of PALLADIUM is $2,369.20 per troy oz, -18.50 (-0.77%).  The price of Light Sweet Crude Oil is $61.72 per barrel, +0.58 (+0.95%).  Currently, one-dollar U.S. = 6.45 Chi-Com yuan.   Meanwhile, one-dollar U.S. = 0.83 euros and in Mexican pesos equals 20.22.  Next, one American dollar equals 0.000019 Bitcoin.  Meanwhile, Australia says the new rules regarding search engines and social media sites to pay for their news feeds is working out well. 
  71. 2021 Wednesday I: In other exciting news, the wife of Kim Jong Un made her first public appearance in more than a year.  Meanwhile, here are the results for the Super Lotto Draw #3535 with a prize of $21 million on the line: 20, 26, 39, 40, 46, and Mega 19.  Out of 99,136 winning tickets, the highest winners were EIGHT people who had FOUR plus the Mega for a prize of $2,263 apiece.  Here are the results for tonight’s Powerball Drawing #821 with a $68 million prize up for grabs: 01, 15, 21, 32, 46, and Powerball 01.  Out of 47,168 winning tickets, te highest winners were 28 people who had FOUR numbers for a prize of $483 apiece.

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

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


Thursday, February 17, 2022:

ENDNOTES:

[i] We hope to share the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd sometime in the next decade.  At least by 2029 so please stay tuned for further news.

[ii] We hope to present the music of this foundational American rock band within the next 5-6 years.  Please stay tuned for further developments.  We thank you; we know you love the Beach Boys as much as we do.

[iii] We began promoting the music of the Beatles and the band’s original members, beginning on Friday, 04-November-2016 which ran through Sunday, 11-June-2017. You definitely need to check out the music of the Beatles, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr- you will be glad you did.

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

FOLKS, JOE HAS GOT TO GO- NOW!

  63. 2021 Wednesday: Former U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo joins the conservative Washington, D.C., think tank, the Hudson Institute.  They are proud to have him and look forward to a glorious future.  Mr. Pompeo raises warnings about Beijing’s control over the current ‘president.’  Meanwhile, the GOP is attempting to respond in real time to all the moves the Biden administration is rapidly doing.  We hope so because ‘President’ Biden is going to ruin the country if not stopped.   Speaking of Biden-initiated damage, Senator Steve Daines says that ‘Biden is returning America to the 1970s’ when we were dependent upon foreign countries for our supply of energy.  We must fight all the bogus Climate Change executive orders the senile 46th president is forcing down the throats of the American people.  Elsewhere, sniveling left-wing groups are braying for Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene’s resignation over past remarks ‘advocating violence’ against Democratic leaders such as drooling octogenarian House Speaker Nancy “Mumbles” Pelosi.  Grow up and shut up.

  65. 2021 Wednesday B: YouTube extends its ban on former President Donald J.

  68. 2021 Wednesday E: ‘President’ Joe Biden signs three executive orders today- all dealing with racial equity and climate change- bringing the number of orders signed in the first eight days to 40- an unheard-of number- which tells us he does not expect to continue without opposition for much longer.  Opposition from where?  No one knows.  Elsewhere, Goldman-Sachs CEO David Solomon receives a pay cut of $10 million over his firm’s ties to the 1MDB Malaysian bribery scandal.   Speaking of corruption, a UK lawmaker is accusing HSBC of aiding the Chi-Coms in their Hong Kong crackdown. 
  69. 2021 Wednesday F: Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, Democrat, says ‘Democrats should set aside impeachment and seek censure of former President Donald J. Trump.  Meanwhile, former Trump White House Chief of State Mark Meadows says that President Biden is putting America last with all his executive orders.   Elsewhere, religious liberties advocates are fearful over the ‘tumultuous days ahead under the Biden administration.’   Next, the Netherlands are facing the worst civil unrest in four decades as people have grown increasingly angry over the harsh China Virus lockdowns and restrictions in that Western European nation.    
  70. 2021 Wednesday G: A U.S. terrorism alert- political violence might be coming.  Of course, political violence is coming, and they know it: another false flag operation around the time the U.S. Senate conducts the second Trump impeachment trial, Antifa violence with members dres
